CONNECTING THE NODES

Observations on Electronic Harassment Created through Standard Radio Based Scanner Broadcasts

Under construction—draft 2

January 24, 2014 first entry

Disclaimer:  I understand the basic issues of the human mind, and the fluctuating control of the Id, Ego, and  Super-ego.  The Id represents the unorganized instincts and drives.  The Ego functions on ‘the reality principle’ which satisfies desire in a realistic paced and longer term pathways versus choices that will bring short-term grief.  The Super-ego guides towards perfection through guidance and socially appropriate focus. [see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Id,_ego_and_super-ego ]  So some mud-slinging smarty pants MAY try to argue that as a defense mechanism, when one of these three components seeks to control the brain, IT MAY BECOME SO STRONG AS TO AUDIBLY PRODUCE SIGNALS TO REINFORCE THE NEEDS AND DRIVES INNATELY CONTAINED IN ITS STRUCTURE.  In other words, putting a microphone to an artificial voice given to a particular part of the consciousness, and a speaker placed in the ears so has to over-ride the brain’s reasoning structure.  This synthetic strength would bypass thought processes, and manifest in human abnormal behavior.  This phenomenon described might be labeled as psychosis or multiple personality disorder.  However, the proliferation of electronic signal saturation, and plain dirty trick playing harassing individuals, may seek to create a false diagnosis by employing undefined or unsuccessfully prosecuted technologies and techniques.  Perhaps some people’s brains are more susceptible to penetrating radiation, some may be just plain targeted. [see microwave auditory frequency, wiki; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microwave_auditory_effect  ]

Gary Sklaver is the attorney that told me, in Attorney Fretel’s office, ‘you can’t stop us…’  Around that time, interfering but audible sound bites and streams started to blend in to my television and radio broadcasts.  I am postulating that these interfering signals are two-way conversations that are similar to the systems that are used by municipal agencies to communicate with each other or some high frequency signal designed for the same purpose .   These conversations seem to place my speakers in the middle, and become decoded by use of a simple signal scanner or ham radio setup.   I performed this step by using a free online scanner, scrolling through the channels, and finding where the blended sound-bites match what are emanating over other non-networked but powered speakers attached to other broadcast medium, connected to unrelated media streams…

This phenomenon seems to match another case Attorney Sklaver was involved in, where not his client, but his opposition faced some sort of similar harassing tactics.  This gentleman later was discredited, signed over his business ownership, and then is quoted of feeling ‘other’ forms of non-traditional manifestations of terror.

As author Molly Ball wrote in her piece ‘A Grab for the Wheel…’ in the Yale Herald Online,

Spoerndle signed over control of the club—he claims he was told the agreement was temporary. Now, thanks to a 12-step program, he says he’s been sober for over two years, but he’s still locked out of Toad’s. In May, he filed a civil suit in New Haven Superior Court, claiming Phelps took advantage of his debased condition and fraudulently induced him to give up his property.

“At that time, I was totally out of my mind. I mean, I was in and out of eight or 10 psych wards. The aliens were at my house, I thought,” Spoerndle says. “And, you know, people sometimes take advantage of people who are out of their minds. But there are laws that protect people.” Spoerndle hopes that those laws will eventually put Toad’s back in his hands.

“I’m not the hotshot I used to be [Spoerndle] , but I’m happier, I’m more at peace,” he says. “I’m extremely grateful I lived through it, grateful to be free. I believe I was allowed to live so I can help others.” Spoerndle currently devotes his time to volunteer work at 13 detox and rehab centers in the area, “helping people get out of that tortured place and have lives.”

Spoerndle’s lawsuit alleges that Phelps “knew that Michael Spoerndle was suffering from mental and physical problems which rendered him incapable and incompetent to han-dle his own affairs” and took advantage of this knowledge to “induce…Spoerndle to sign away his property and his right to control over the Toad’s Place business.”

Phelps and his lawyer, Gary Sklaver, declined to comment on the suit.

Unfortunately, I am unable to contact Mr. Spoerndle about his experiences, except perhaps by séance.  In this case, though years have passed since the suit was initiated, [circa year 2000].  Mr. Spoerndle was found dead in his East Haven House in 2011.  Brian McCready of the New Haven Register reported [Posted: 05/07/11, 12:00 AM EDT]:

NEW HAVEN — The man who made Connecticut rock has died. Mike Spoerndle, 59, of East Haven, who founded the legendary New Haven music club Toad’s Place in 1975 was found dead in his home Friday. The exact cause of death remains unknown…”  Brian McCready, New Haven Register http://www.nhregister.com/general-news/20110507/toads-place-founder-dies-brought-legends-to-new-haven-share-your-club-memories

A very sad day for New Haven Music, Arts and Entertainment, but most importantly, a link lost for my research.  I would have liked to compare notes, and gotten HIS opinion about Attorney Gary Sklaver, and the harassment he claimed to experience.

Not quite the Danny Casloaro story, but…? [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danny_Casolaro ]

WHO IS THE EGG-MAN?

Furthermore, Where Did I Leave That Walrus Anyway?

Draft four

When I head about the Snowden Situation, I immediately felt a sympathetic cord ring inside me.  Not so much to take a side for guilt or innocence, but a sympathetic feeling of someone who has felt the invisible presence of having my personal space penetrated.  I initially thought I would write-up this great paper about the Prism Project.  I remembered about a book I read about Sam Israel and Bayou Securities.  No—better idea still, Danny Casolaro’s story would make a stronger backbone.  Then the X-Keyscore story broke and I had to clear my desk.  Today I just learned about the SOD* program [*see end paragraph, Rachael Maddow, 8/5/2013].  Of course, if all else didn’t inspire me, I could always write about The Monarch Program.

This is the nebulous soup described in the movie ‘The Fog.’  What is it, what is out there?  I think the reason I can’t sketch out what I am feeling because the metaphor used to describe the NSA program locked me into a dull charcoal.  It isn’t specifically that vast quantities of data is being ‘vacuumed up.’   That may be part of what is going on, but I am teaching myself to not fall for the shell game.  Someone described the entire scope as a giant squid, reaching out and sticking to everything.  I prefer the simile of an octopus.  It sticks and rips away historically stuck data, AND it extends into many areas of our daily life.  And when the diver detective gets close, it spits out an inky blot so nothing can be seen clearly.

The results of the trip wire that Snowden walked through displayed itself when I read the NPR Snowden Wrap-up article.  I heard what he said when I watched the live Q & A, but NPR put it into permanent text.   This young man said, in a stray but intentional thought lurking in the conversation, that predictive analysis can be applied to each and any person.  By leveraging many technologies applied against hard database data, a type of virtual ESP blankets any point on the globe.  This is an arms race for control over people’s brains.  But are we looking through a lighted keyhole or is the door finally ajar?

The following is taken from the NPR website, displayed here without NPR’s permission to highlight the importance of this subtle point…

GREENWALD: Why should people care about surveillance?

SNOWDEN: Because even if you’re not doing anything wrong, you’re being watched and recorded. And the storage capability of these systems increases every year consistently by orders of magnitude, to where it’s getting to the point you don’t have to have done anything wrong. You simply have to eventually fall under suspicion from somebody, even by a wrong call.

And then they can use this system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you’ve ever made, every friend you’ve ever discussed something with, and attack you on that basis to sort to derive suspicion from an innocent life and paint anyone in the context of a wrongdoer


When the horror of having all thoughts, conversations, relationships and activities monitored; reality asks how should we now defend ourselves.  I tried to imagine this electronic fog-space.  Snowden has described some of the best protective pre-emptive devices for harvesting information.  But if civil liberty was reset, old-fashioned boots on the ground won’t replace the now uncovered electronic warrior sponges.  Citizens are being asked to tolerate the eavesdropping to phone, written word, electronic conversations, and possibly brain wave thoughts because there is no alternative.  The operators may be required to broadcast an ‘interference’ layer which makes the citizen or spy alike think they are listening to or tracking someone else.  Like layers of a gob-stopper candy, each layer that gets dissolved reveals another hard shell and a new flavor of surveillance.  [really sucks]

Most thoughts I have written about pertain to waking hours.  But what happens when the target goes to sleep.  Can I be subliminally whispered to in the first few minutes of twilight?  Can specific pieces of personal information be suggested to warp the brain’s dreamtime?  When you know there is a monster in the shadows, but have little light and no experiential foundation to visualize what you think you feel, the eyes and imagination WILL draw out something more horrific than past perceptions.  And perhaps, we are so far off the curve of acquired experience, our imaginations are correct.  Expert systems combined with The Prism project, X-Keyscore and the Monarch Program have already been revealed.  Imagine the coming attractions; bio-engineered clones will impersonate human life. [Watch Gattaca, 1997, or search wiki]  A Bluetooth device and a look-alike armed with a broadcasted constructed decision criteria profile could do this now in real-time.  Read the NPR Snowden interview transcript…

The Octopus seems to reach any place signals can create a dimensional atmosphere.  Politicians like Lindsey Graham appear to be in two places at on this topic .  The Prism Project seems a necessary part of modern data collection, but universal gun owner background checks appear to be too invasive. [Idea from MSNBC Rev Al Sharpton television show]  Another example is the insurance industry.  Prices are set and coverage is approved or denied.  Decisions are considered locked for fear of competitive reprisals.  The ‘carrot’ of privacy gets dangled in front of you eyes, but like the donkey, citizens are asked to just keep pulling that cart.  A final troubling situation arises when chosen individuals actually make a mistake or fail.  Forces move in to prevent disaster, and over time, failure is considered desirable.  Of course, the safety net won’t be there for regular people.  They are lured to replace the previous person’s disaster.  The magical enchantment encourages citizens to pay now, so another can repay an old debt.

I really set out to write about some of the spy vs. spy projects and devices.  I want to be sure I am factually accurate.  But I also have a sense that all of the revelations have not yet revealed themselves.  MY UNQUALIFIED GUT OPINION tells me the type of work Snowden performed for Booze Allen requires a back channel grey network to click back and forth in cases of data corruption.  This data corruption may originate from password hacking, packet theft, or ‘listening in’ to those who are listening in.  In order to separate the doppelgänger mirror image from the real operative, I WOULD GUESS in this type of scenario, one needs to step away from the shadow or reflection that one casts.  Who knows what authority is monitoring this grey network because the level of unknown about the front channel has become apparent through Edward’s revelations.  Who knows what happens to the data once it is acquired, reduced to text or storage, and sits on someone’s disk or desk.  Outdated versions of the tools could make their way into the secondary market.  One person’s junk is some unacquainted newbie’s treasure.

These tools still seem light years ahead of how the collective citizen mind is thinking.  If the bad guys use these tools, then the good guys should to, right?  I want to describe these tools as I see them.  They are the cane and spoon for the surveillance crowd.  I have a feeling they won’t live without them, now that they have been proven effective.  I just hope that someone will pass a law that protects my sleeping hours.  The one feeling that I know to be true is the longer I become acclimated to this new definition of privacy, the more time it seems I have already been living under its grip.  CAUTION:  Unconscious siphoning may have physical effects…

*SOD: The SOD forwards tips gleaned from NSA intercepts, wiretaps by foreign governments, court-approved domestic wiretaps and a database called DICE to federal agents and local law enforcement officers. The DICE database is different from the NSA phone-records database. DICE consists of about 1 billion records, and is primarily a compilation of phone log data that is legally gathered by the DEA through subpoenas or search warrants

Comment on Immigrations and Oversight

 Opinions & Observations

 First draft

I am not speaking against the department, the state or the intelligence community.  This piece is not intended to provide remedies for our current problems.  But until Immigrations is fixed, the Dreamers and the Documented will receive additional surveillance.

Parked cars wait across the street where undocumented and incorrectly documented persons work.  Parking lots and Big Box Stores are monitored via camera and closed circuit television.  In East Haven, CT, ‘dances and social gatherings’ are observed with the closest eyes.  Many agree that this extra attention is necessary, because “these groups” are particularly elusive.  They have common features such as facial parts, family descriptions and name overlap with repetitiveness.  It is critical to create registries and documentation to keep track of the fluctuating populations because the current systems have failed.  There is no will to absorb the dreamers [amnesty] and deportation would be particularly harsh on people and the economy.

The lack of consensus on Immigrations, Papers Please, E-verify and Employer Regulation Enforcement has created a shadow population in the United States. It is estimated that between eleven and thirteen million Dreamers and un-Documented workers are currently living in U.S. towns and cities.[estimates vary, numbers from Barak Obama’s recent ‘fix immigrations’ speech during the month of February 2013]  American Employers have become hooked on the unending low-cost labor supply.  The end game is the slow elimination of employer-provided retirement, cost of living and benefit plans.  Years of short-changing the labor and census systems have one direct result.  The failure to establish a permanent United States Immigration Policy and Accepted Universal Update will be the gateway for all residents to be monitored. Further, there will be competition for the information that is gathered.  A case by case option will form the basis for social control because low-cost labor is more important than the Freedoms granted by the U.S. Constitution… [Wikipedia defines social control as “societal and political mechanisms or processes that regulate individual and group behavior in an attempt to gain conformity and compliance to the rules of a given society, state, or social grouphttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_control%5D

The question without new legislation is whether or not to extend constitutional freedoms to all who walk on America’s soil, both un-documented or dreamers. Americans struggle with Guantanamo Bay, but at least it gets discussed.  Our freedoms are very flexible, but America’s laws require clarity, data points, historical perspective and continual review.  The Congressional look away only works for a short time.  Cities, counties and states need to maintain law and order regardless of how citizens abuse the written rules.  If the legislators won’t legislate, and the employers won’t bear the responsibility of correct and accurate hiring practices, ALL AMERICANS WILL BE OBSERVED with keener powers of inspection.  Smile, you are on camera!

I would like to illustrate a scenario partially based on observation, partially based on experiential compilation.  This is one starting point.  When everyone gets out of work, pockets of different people congregate for ‘dances’ and other activities. These events are permitted to continue for social relaxation, for watching the specific groups in their habitat, and for conducting Surveillance activities.

As the popular tale is told, ‘everywhere that Mary went, those Lambs were sure to go.’ And where those lambs go, the surveillance follows. It is like the mapping car cameras driving down every street drawing each square inch of travel.  In my observation and opinion, because the job creators in many states want cheap labor, the departments want to play with their toys, and some others want to promote social control, the data collection system is propagated in continuous cycles. All feet on American soil are part of this collection pool because of the inter-meshing of the twenty-four hour monitoring procedure.

The final natural question is what will be done with all of the newly collected data.  Another layer of hierarchy gets introduced called the ‘oversight.’ This layer is installed to cultivate the data farms and ensure the correct usage of observational techniques.  Information is very powerful, and because greed creates an end to end disintegration in policy, all information collected becomes useful.  From the moment of wakefulness, to every place the Dreamers and un-Documented travel and work, their family sizes, medical decisions, food selection, entertainment choices, and financial transactions become fair for recording.  And because we have a shadow population interacting with documented citizens, ALL INTERACTIONS are open for surveillance.  Powers of escalation enable continuous points of monitoring.  Each connection makes a sticking spot where data is collected.  Places where surveillance would never be required become necessary for ‘personal safety’ and legislative accuracy.

So we have all types of people following all types of people around, conducting surveillance activities. Some legitimate, some clandestine until deemed ‘necessary.’ Spy vs. Spy. See true believers, personal benefit casts a BIG net. And slowly but surely, on a case by case basis, all will have to be watched because the promoters call it ‘witness protection.’ Real Americans will require these protections because of this new, dangerous jungle. The actions in homes, parks, roads, electronic media, communications, and bedrooms will be monitored and documented. Is this place is so wonderful? ‘Keys please.’

 

America should avoid this by having an open and honest Immigrations conversation, and PASSING LEGISLATION based on a popular vote.  What a concept.

Next issue, the editor gets his pictures, and the watchers and lambs get caught in the web.  This newly acquired information gained through various methods of surveillance is TOO TEMPTING to sit on the shelf.  Many new applications will showcase the data gained from deep access. And there’s the show… ‘Amazing Temptations’
