Laura Carter was thirty-six, lived in New York, and was employed by the Post Office when I interviewed her in 2007. She related to me the details of a distinctly odd and unsettling series of occurrences that took place back in mid-1985. On one particularly warm summer’s night, Laura said, three of her friends had come over to visit. Her parents were out of town, and so the girls planned to have an evening hanging out, playing music, drinking, and and generally having a fun time.
At some point during the night, the discussion turned to horror-movies, ghosts, spooks and specters, and the four girls decided to experiment with an old Ouija Board. As Laura admitted to me, none of them were seriously frightened by the board or the possible implications of what might transpire – in fact, they had no real idea at all how to even use the board, apart from “what we had seen in horror movies,” added Laura. But, like teenagers everywhere, they found the idea of “playing with the Ouija Board while my mom and dad were out” to be great fun and immensely exciting. However, what initially started out as nothing more than a bit of late-night joking around quickly changed into something far darker and much more disturbing.
Largely improvising, as a result of their lack of any real knowledge of how to use a Ouija Board, the four did their best: relying on familiar Hollywood imagery, they pulled a wine-glass from a kitchen-cupboard, placed the index-fingers of their right hands atop it, and were soon immersed in their planned bit of fun. Questions about boys, when they would marry, and attempts to contact dead relatives followed – all to no avail, perhaps inevitably. However, said Laura, something decidedly odd did occur: on two occasions, the electricity went off – which scared the living daylights out of the four friends. Not surprisingly, one might argue, taking into consideration their actions with the Ouija Board.
Laura explained further that everyone got a weird vibe when the power failed. And even though nothing else of an untoward nature occurred that night, it was all too late, the damage was done, and a doorway was unwittingly, and ominously, opened. For reasons that, Laura admits, to this day she cannot really explain nor understand, a feeling of fear and apprehension came over as the next day progressed, and afternoon became early evening – and after her friends had all returned to their respective homes. Once again the electricity failed – around 6.00 p.m. – and the dark, foreboding feelings began to take an ever-stronger hold on Laura’s mind. And so, after eating a hastily-made sandwich, she decided to retire to the comfort and (so she thought, at least) safety of her bedroom.
Later that night, however, Laura was woken from a deep sleep in the early hours, and heard what sounded very much like a loud, yet disturbing, animal-like “scream” emanating from the vicinity of a small, but densely-packed, area of woodland that was situated at the rear of the family home.
Here’s the rundown on the infamous CIA Mind Control program that you need to know about.
I just started watching the Netflix series Stranger Things. I don’t know why I’m coming so late to this party. It’s a stellar show with an amazing cast and writing that’s way cool.
By episode three, though, you gotta have noticed MK-ULTRA I don’t know about you but I sure am tired of learning about new ways our government—and its cronies—have been hiding things from us—decades and decades and decades of secret after secret after secret—many of which are designed specifically to hurt Americans individually and as a people. And we call ourselves a “free” nation.
Certain people will automatically call you a ‘Conspiracy Theorist’ when they hear words like ‘Deep State’ or ‘Secret CIA Operation’. This is by design and it plays right into why it’s important for you to educate yourself on this topic.
The MK-ULTRA program is a stain—more like a bruise—no, a festering wound—on our history that needs to be told from generation to generation. The proof of its existence was nearly all destroyed by Richard Helm, Head of the CIA, while the Watergate scandal was unfolding. That is why it is rarely talked about and you won’t find it in your History books.
Several thousand documents have been declassified and made public through FOIA. These documents are available in the CIA’s online library. Some of which were released as recently as December 2016.
So, What the Hell Is MK-ULTRA?
The United States was determined to figure out how to enslave someone’s mind in order to have them carry out nefarious acts upon receiving a ‘trigger’ such as a verbal command or seeing an image.
Rock on brother. Rock. On.
When the murders took place, the house was worth $75,000 and was listed as 112 Ocean Ave. But after the killings, a later owner of the home worked with the post office to get the address changed to 108. (Richard Drew/ASSOCIATED PRESS)
The murders spawned a haunting incident endured by the Lutz family who, a few years after the murders took place, bought the Dutch-colonial on Ocean-Avenue for a steal, and moved in, only to be chased out of the house by a demonic presence and/or ghostly visitations. The ordeal has been referred to as “The Amityville Horror” since 1977, when author Jay Anson penned his best-selling nonfiction book by the same name. The book spawned a 1979 movie starring James Brolin and Margot Kidder (4 skulls). A second book, The Amityville Horror, Part II by John G. Jones was published in 1982. A series of sequel films followed during the 1980s (see images below), which I have never watched. In 2005, an official remake of the story was made starring Ryan Reynolds (3.75 skulls).
The story of The Amityville Horror was continued in a series of books by John G. Jones, with The Amityville Horror Part II (1982), Amityville: The Final Chapter (1985), Amityville: The Evil Escapes (1988) and Amityville: The Horror Returns (1989). In 1991, Amityville: The Nightmare Continues by Robin Karl was published. Famed ghost hunter, Hans Holzer, also wrote books relating the story, including Murder in Amityville, The Amityville Curse and The Secret of Amityville.
