MKUltra makes the news
Posted by: McQ on Sunday, April 09, 2006

It's sunday, I have my beer goggles on and well, this just struck me as funny:
A screaming intruder made it onto the front lawn of the White House Sunday while President Bush was at home before being apprehended by Secret Service officers.

Secret Service spokesman Eric Zahren described the man as "someone who has come to our attention in the past as a fence jumper."

The bearded man, wearing blue jeans and a white T-shirt that said "God Bless America," jumped the fence outside the White House and ran across the north lawn while repeatedly yelling, "I am a victim of terrorism!"
Had to be MK. He's been a bit quiet today and besides, he's always struck me as a fence jumper.

If the jumper had said "We are all Democrats now!", I’d agree with you.

To be fair, though, I must concede something I never thought I would. Compared to the 9/11 conspirazoids, MK seems downright rational.

I just realized that folks that were just dropping by probably don’t know what I’m talking about. Check this thread on Charlie Sheen for the conspiracy stuff, if you didn’t see it earlier. You may not believe what you’re reading, though - it’s that bad.

It wasn’t really so much what the guy said, etc. It was just that it triggered a fleeting mental picture of a frustrated MK taking a run at the WH. I couldn’t help it, I burst our laughing.

Have to go with you there.

For someone whose name comes from the CIA’s LSD research project, MK has indeed been rational. I’ve seen him acknowledge when people were able to refute his logic, and even occasionally accept data which didn’t come from his preferred sources.

As someone who used to bend hot steel for a living, I stopped paying attention to the 9/11 conspirazoids as soon as the fact that jet fuel doesn’t burn hot enough to melt steel was offered as evidence.

This is the 5th QandO article featuring direct reference to mkultra. Mkultra is beginning to feature more commonly in the general stream of QandO.

This is subtle name placement in prelude to QandO staffers making MK their fourth amigo?

Yes. And the following day Dale is going to endorse Roy Blunt for Speaker of the House.

But it makes sense, Jon Henke has even gone out of his way to include obtuse references to MK in his posts about a Congresswoman.

On second thought maybe it doesn’t, but this increased visibility and obtuse exposure of MK related material...just seems too coincidental to be unintentional.

Amen, brother. When you realize that they are no doubt registered voters, it makes you wonder if monarchy is all that bad, and maybe G. Washington erred.


"include obtuse references to MK"
Is there a little play on words there?

Presumably, you’re joking here, but just in case: my reference was to the actual MKUltra program and not the commenter. I would not spend a post on a commenter unless the commenter had something important to add to what I wanted to write.

I actually witnessed this event. I was sitting on the north side of the White House, joking with my friend (who has commented here as Tezcatlipoca) about how far one could make it if one were to jump over the fence (you couldn’t see any guards outside of a few booths). Not three minutes later, this gentleman tested out the theory for us.
The answer is what you’d think it is: not very far.

These guys don’t mess around. Half a dozen guards materialized within several seconds of this guy jumping the fence. Very impressive.

He dodged the first guard (big guy) with a sort of football-like maneuver to avoid being tackled, then ran through the flower bed. Then they pulled pistols and he stopped and made his little speech.

At about this time all the police near the north end went from smiling, chatty folks into authority mode and yelled that everyone had to back away from the fence across the street ("Next time you stop walking, you’re going to jail!")... then across the park and all the way across the NEXT street up, H Street. As we were just leaving the fence, several nondescript white minivans pulled up to the fence, and a number of bicycle cops showed up.

By the time we got across H Street, you could look back and see several black-clad guards on the roof of the White House.

By the time I and two of my friends went to Old Ebbitt Grill across the street (at 5:00, so more than an hour after this happened), they still weren’t letting anyone near the north end.

What crime do they charge you with for this kind of stunt? For about how long is this guy going to disappear?

Wow, just read through some of that 9/11 conspiricy crap... I think my IQ has dropped several points just from being exposed to it. "Thanks" for the link. :P
