The Men in the Black Tinfoil Hats: MU’s Goat Starers Guide

To kill a goat or (even lamer) a hamster by staring the life out of it is crazy, right? The new George Clooney movie “The Men Who Stare At Goats” runs with the insanity angle, but it’s a mere shadow madness compared to the story in Jon Ronson’s‘ 2004 non-fiction book on which the film was very loosely based.

Ronson’s book is a sinister screwball comedy that shows how Jim Channon’s (Jeff Bridges in the movie) new-age,  “Be-All-That-You-Can-Be” reinvention of the military into the 1st Earth Battalion was perverted by guys so bad–Black Ops, PsiOps, CIA–even their tin-foil hats are black.

However, Ronson only reached the low branches of the crazy tree, probably because the air gets too thin near the top to sustain human sanity.  But for some of you (and me) that may sound like fun, so here’s a link ladder to take you from goat starers all the way to the place where dogs disintegrate.

Let’s start with Retired Major General Albert N. Stubblebine (the guy who tried to walk through the wall in film and book).  The onetime director of US Army Intelligence and Security Command, Stubblebine retired and joined the board of a ‘remote viewing’ company called PSI-TECH alongside…

Colonel John B. Alexander (another  star of the book).  He spent part of his career as a Commander of Green Berets Special Forces in Vietnam became Director of the Non-lethal Weapons Programs in the Los Alamos National Laboratories. Alexander was also a purported member of the AVIARY, a group of intelligence and Department of Defense officers and scientists with a mandate to discredit any serious research in the UFO field. Each member of the Aviary bears a bird’s name: John Alexander is PENGUIN and …

Harold Puthoff is the OWL.  Puthoff ran the Stanford Research Institute where in the 70s and 80s he directed a CIA/DIA-funded remote viewing program eventually known as STARGATE at SRI International to investigate paranormal abilities, collaborating with Russell Targ in a study of the purported psychic abilities of Uri Geller, Ingo Swann.  During that time he was also a full-blown Scientologist, as was Swann and several other members of the Stargate team.  In 1985, as Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin, Puthoff studied space propulsion and energy generation for an anonymous donor and now is CEO of the privately funded EarthTech International working with Zero-point  electromagnetic field working with…

Physicist Eric Davis author of a report on teleportation commissioned by the U.S. Air Force and as an on-site investigator of of strange creatures and other anomalous phenomena at the Skinwalker Ranch near Salt Lake City…

Which he did at the behest of his benefactor, Aerospace billionaire Robert Bigelow who had purchased the ranch for the stated purpose of studying the  creatures, strange objects, floating black triangles, animal mutilations the aforementioned disintegrated dogs that haunt the place…

Star Team Impact)This paranormal project was only one of many taken up by Bigelow and his National Institute of Discovery Science (1995-2004) which was headed up by none other than John Alexander, with Puthoff and Davis along with several other luminaries in the paranormal or paramilitary/intelligence field on its board, and he is frequently linked to the CIA and his many research projects thought to be cover for Black Ops.

A frequent funder of  UFO research,  in August 2009, Bigelow gave MUFON millions to fund a UFO Rapid Response Team as well as funding 50 scientists to study photographic or other evidence left by UFOs….Oh, no! Does that mean MUFON is now a Black Ops front organization?

If you haven’t already passed out from hypoxia…take a deep breath and read on here and here.

    Great article!

    Did you see/hear Ronson on Alex Jones show the other night? You can YouTube it. It's pretty funny watching Ronson's sober (yet drinking a pint) journalist/non-conspiracy theorist manner conflicting with Jones in your face “infowar” monologues. It was almost as funny as reading the Alex Jones material in Ronson's Them.

    I was about to suggest doing a podcast episode about this. I saw it on io9.com and searched for it on youtube, dailymotion etc. (Crazy Rulers of the World is the name of the mini series documentary he did about this stuff) its in 3 parts and I only watched part 1. Really interesting stuff!

    I am looking forward to this film. There is a great interview with the writer of the book and of the screen play, Jon Ronson. Check it out :)

    It's a fantastic interview. He speaks about his other books which I am trying to get at the moment.
