Continuing a series of sermons on madness – I hope this is my last.
Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it.
Today in order that this well known saying not have to apply to us, I’m going to go over the history of the past hundred years of the United States specifically regarding unethical medical experimentation on American citizens by official US government agencies.
It’s not a pleasant topic for me to talk about – I don’t like talking about such matters, but I feel compelled, because I’m not hearing it from the sources that we should be.
So knowing what’s happened in the past, gives us something to compare the present with. What is happening now, what has happened in the past? What are medical experts saying now, what have they said in the past? Comparing the two and being better informed enables us to think for ourselves, ask better questions, demand reasonable answers from our government, medical experts, and so on.
I’ll give you a summary before we get into it.
I got all of this from the public domain. What I’m about to read, this is a Wikipedia entry. I want you to know that – this is not like ‘conspiracy theory stuff’. You type in on Google ‘unethical experimentation in the United States’ – don’t do that, you’ll be horrified – but this is out there, this is public information.
Beginning in the early 1900’s, the US government in conjunction with dozens of state and private agencies, conducted illegal and unethical testing on the citizens of the United States. Many of these tests were performed on children, the sick, the mentality disabled, and often under the guise of medical treatment.
Experiments included exposure to harmful biological substances, injections of toxic and radioactive chemicals into uninformed subjects, surgical experiments, interrogation and torture, tests involving mind-altering substances, and a wide variaty of other experiments, leaving many test subjects with deadly or debilitating diseases.
Most of these experiments, were sponsored by government agencies including the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), United States military, the CDC, and many other private corporations involved in military or governmental activities.
These human research programs were usually highly secretive, and in many cases information about them was not released until many years after the studies had been performed.
Those who are ignorant of history are doomed to repeat it.
We are told over & over these days “Trust the science“, “Trust the experts“. Ah, well pardon me, because I don’t trust the experts or ‘their’ science. Because I know the past. I know my history. And I know what previous “experts” have done, and I know how they got “previous science”. This is what knowing our history does for us. Enables us to think for ourselves.
So we’re going to get into some of these experiments specifically, and I’m sorry to have to do this to you, but we need to know the truth.
Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment
So 1932, there was the Tuskegee syphilis experiment (“Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male”). This was a clinical study conducted between 1932 and 1972 in Tuskegee, Alabama, by the U.S. Public Health Service. In this experiment, 400 poor black men suffering a particular disease were lied to by researchers. They were told that they would receive treatment, but in fact, these researchers simply wanted to track the progress of debilitation.
There was no effective treatment at the time the experiment was started in 1932, but by 1947 there was – and researchers continued the programme anyway. They could’ve given these men Penicillin – they could’ve cured them from this disease, but they’re like “you know we’re so far along – we want to keep tracking what the disease does to them.”
By the end of the study in 1972, 28 of the original 400 men had died directly from the disease. 100 were dead from complications related to the disease. 40 of their wives had become infected and 19 other children were born with congenital cases of the disease. This all could’ve been prevented from happening but it was intentionally not prevented because they wanted the medical research.
In fact the only reason the study was discontinued in 1972, was because information was leaked to the press, and there was such a public outcry, that the researchers were forced to stop. Over the course of 40 years, all men, all program directors, all technicians, all medical personnel – nobody said anything. Nobody stopped it.
Chicago Malaria Experiments
The Chicago Malaria Experiments. In the 1940’s, the Illinois state hospital of the US department of medicine in conjunction with the United States army and the US State Department, oversaw the deliberate injection of Malaria into healthy psychiatric patients, so that doctors could test the effectiveness of experimental, medical treatments.
These psychiatric patients were not informed, nor did they give their consent. What were they told? “Trust your medical experts.“
Vanderbilt Nutrition Study
The Vanderbilt Nutrition Study. Immediately after World War II, researchers at Vanderbilt University gave 829 pregnant mothers what they were told were “vitamin drinks” that would improve the health of their babies.
In reality the mixtures containing radioactive iron, and researchers wanted to determine how fast the radioisotope crossed into the placenta. Four of the babies died from cancer as a result of the experiment, and the women experienced rashes, bruises, anaemia, hair & tooth loss, and cancer.
It gets worse.
AEC Nuclear Tests
Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) Nuclear tests. In 1957, the United States Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) was involved in atmospheric nuclear explosions in Nevada. Which were later determined to have released enough radiation to have caused anywhere from 11,000 – 200,000 cases of excess cancer among US citizens who’d been exposed to this fallout. So what did the AEC do about it? They knew people had been exposed to this radiation and that it was harmful to them.
Rather than warning people about it, they decided to ‘study the effects of radiation’, and so in a secret document dated April 17th 1947, entitled “Medical Experiments in Humans”, it was stated: No document ought be released which refers to experiments with humans that might have an ‘adverse reaction on public opinion’ or result in ‘legal suits’. Documents covering such field work, should be classified “Secret”.
At the same time they released their secret document, the AEC instructed the Public Health Service to tell citizens suffering from radiation, that it was due to “neurosis”, and that women with radiation sickness, hair loss, and burned skin were told they were suffering from “housewife syndrome“, and the public health service complied. They didn’t warn people, they didn’t tell them how to get treatment, they followed the orders to lie. The result led to between 1,000 – 20,000 unnecessary deaths.
It gets worse.
In 1950, the CIA initiated Project Bluebird (later renamed Project Artichoke). In this experiment, which included Military personnel, they were experimented on without knowledge or consent. Researchers used a wide variety of psychoactive substances, including LSD, heroin, marijuana, cocaine, PCP, mescaline, and ether, in addition to hypnosis and forced-addictions. The goal of the project was to reduce the test subjects to a vulnerable state in order to achieve complete psychological manipulation.
Researchers wanted to answer this question: “Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self preservation?“
This was for the intelligence community – for the purposes of espionage, spywork, etc. Completely unethical. These experiments were carried on over 7,000 U.S. military personnel without their consent at the Edgewood Arsenal in Maryland. Years after these experiments, more than 1,000 of these soldiers suffered from several illnesses, including depression, epilepsy and many of them attempted suicide.
(Wow Fr Nolan ‘lightened-up’ the above paragraph… Wikipedia version actually says: “The CIA sought to establish control over what it perceived as the “weaker” and “less intelligent” segments of society, or for potential agents, defectors, refugees, POWs and others. A CIA report states that if hypnosis succeeded, assassins could be created to assassinate “a prominent [redacted] politician or if necessary, American official.”)
I wish I could stop here. Project Bluebird continued…
In 1953, the CIA placed multiple interrogation and mind-control programmes under the direction of a single programme known as “MK Ultra”. This came after the CIA director Alan Dulles, complained about not having enough “human guinea pigs on which to try out these extraordinary techniques”.
The MKULTRA project received over $25 million in government funding, and involved hundreds of experiments on human subjects at eighty different institutions within the United States.
Building upon the evil knowledge gained from other programmes, the purpose of MKUltra was thus:
“depattern” individuals, erase their minds and memories— and then “rebuild” their personality in a manner of his choosing.
One of the medical doctors conducting these experiments requested from the CIA ‘any information they could find regarding threats, coercion, imprisonment, deprivation, humiliation, torture, brainwashing, black psychiatry, and hypnosis’.
Patients were put into drug-induced coma’s for up to 88 days subjected to high-voltage electric shocks, and forced to listen to repeated hypnotic messaging for up to 20 hours per day. The directors of the CIA knew very well what was going on and they knew very well what would happen if this activity was discovered and so in a 1957 Inspector General Report, it was stated:
Precautions must be taken not only to protect operations from exposure to enemy forces but also to conceal these activities from the American public in general. The knowledge that the agency is engaging in unethical and illicit activities would have serious repercussions in political and diplomatic circles …
1957 CIA Inspector General Report
These MKUltra experiments continued from 1953-1973 until the CIA finally decided to end the programme before it was discovered. Hard to hide 20 years of torturing your own citizens. So they tried to cover it up but it was discovered and it was a huge public scandal. There are probably some parishioners who recall the two congressional hearings that followed, the Church report, and the Rockefeller Commission.
So if you want to know more about this programme and MKUltra, you can look those up. I encourage you not to, unless you want to be horrified.
These are not ‘conspiracy theories’. These are facts. This kind of thing actually happened in the United States. They make science fiction movies out of this kind of stuff. That’s why it’s important to know our history. This really happened. Authorities have lied in the past. The government has lied in the past. They’ve knowingly cost people their lives.
People say it could never happen here. It HAS happened here. It can happen again. If you think it can’t – you don’t know history. No institution is above lying to us – not the government, not the CDC, not the WHO, and we must accept this as a possibility. We must accept it is possible that we could be deceived. It is possible that people could succumb to original sin, they could succumb to the lust for power, to greed, to avarice. How much do you think your life is worth to the CEO of a company when a billion dollars is on the line? And there’s a tendency in human nature ‘not to want to accept reality when it contradicts authority’.
Imagine in the 1940’s trying to tell people suffering from radiation-sickness “you’re being lied to”. Look at your symptoms, look at the burns, look at the hair loss, look at the cancer, “this is radiation”!
“No, this is ‘housewife syndrome’. Turn on the news, turn on the radio, look at the newspaper. They wouldn’t all lie to us. This can’t be true”
That is human nature, we have to keep in our minds. If we have to accept there’s a possibility we could be lied to, so we can accept reality when we start to see it happening.
Now it was very good in the 1970s – there were hundreds of hundreds of media institutions – different organizations, different corporations, and they were all vying with each other to be the best: The first to report the news, the most accurate, whatever it may be. If you weren’t accurate in the news, you get outdone by another company.
But imagine… what if there wasn’t hundreds of media organizations? What if there were only six? What if there were 6 conglomerate corporations that owned every single media station out there? That’s the case right now – these days. CNN, NBC, GBS, ABC, Time-Warner, Fox news… Six corporations own everything. Six people are making the decision on the information “everybody gets”.
Here’s a series of questions:
- ) What if these six corporations that own every single media station, also own pharmaceutical companies that had a financial interest in conducting experiments?
- ) What if these six corporations receive large grants and tax incentives from the government… who was conducting experiments?
- ) What if the CEO of a large corporation, had a huge financial interest in the results of some experiment, and the CEO decided to grant hundreds of millions of dollars as a grant to media stations?
- ) What if…?
Know your history, and know your recent history – these are not “what if?” scenarios. In fact, there’s a bulletin entry today on this very thing. A CEO last year gave 250 million dollars to media organizations. I’m not going to say which CEO, but the ‘Gates of Hell’ will not prevail.
That’s not science
What happens when a country turns its back on God? It doesn’t abandon God – it replaces Him. It’s just like Lucifer – it wasn’t enough for Lucifer to disobey God, Lucifer wanted to take his place. And that’s what we’re seeing today.
“Trust the Science. Trust the Experts.”
That’s not science! That’s “Faith”!
“BELIEVE” the experts.
“PUT YOUR FAITH” in us.
No argumentation, no hard questioning, no scrutiny
– just “TRUST“.
What we are being asked essentially, is to render under the government and the medical communities, a pious submission of our mind and will.
“Don’t ask questions.
Believe what we tell you.
Do what we tell you.”
And this is the point – it gets to a point about ‘misinformation’ that is extremely disturbing – we should be aware of this: YouTube censors videos (as we all know), and I looked up why – what is their criteria for censoring videos? One of them is “anything which contradicts an official statement from the World Health Organization or local authorities“.
If you contradict local authorities – their official statement says “that’s misinformation”.
So let’s go back to the 1940s and the 1950s:
- If you contradicted the Atomic Energy Commission?
- “Misinformation”. You would’ve been silenced.
- If you contradicted the “Medical Experts” at the Chicago Malaria Institute?
- “Misinformation”. You would’ve been silenced.
- That would’ve been the truth.
Implicit in this statement – this misinformation policy – are, if you say anything against these organizations – the implicit statement is that “these organizations can neither deceive or be deceived”. These organizations are omnipotent – all knowing and they’re “all good”.
“Your government could never lie to you – we could never do that – they could never take advantage of you” – that’s what people are being conditioned to believe by the media, by the misinformation policy.
“You’ve contradicted the CDC, therefore you must be wrong”. (Treated like “blasphemy“)
That’s what happens when a society rejects God. They take his place.
So, in closing I want to give one of the bioethical principles of the Catholic Church, and that is ‘Informed Consent”: Persons receiving medical treatment have the right to know, what is involved, what are the risks, and they are free to refuse.
And that is my fundamental message – you do not have to consent to unwanted medical treatment – no government agency – no religious leader, can force you against your will. If you suspect with good reasons that you’re being asked to participate in a world wide medical experiment – do not participate. DO NOT REPEAT HISTORY. Know your history.
God is your saviour and no one else. God alone is all good, all knowing, all just, and all merciful. Only God can never deceive or be deceived. Trust in Him alone. Not in the government. Not in the media. Not even in Church leaders who are increasingly abandoning Church doctrine. God bless you all.
