No word in the English language conjures up more disdain than the word “cult.” It has been used and abused to describe any group that dances to the tune of a different drum. While it is arguable that we have all been a part of cult-like behavior from time to time in our lives it seems that there are many jumping on the bandwagon to warn you that these groups lurk in the most unassuming of places.

You will also be surprised to learn that many of you are probably already a part of a group that uses a tactic known as group dynamics to get you to do their bidding. This type of manipulation can get even the smartest of people to do things that most people would consider peculiar.

There is a pyramid authoritarian rule exists in many companies, religions, and in government. Deceptive groups use this same pyramid of power in order to get the unit to do the will of the dictatorial ruling body. This means that not all destructive cults are religious in nature.

Cult-like behavior exists in therapy groups, political groups, and many businesses use group dynamics to instill pride and loyalty.

The confusing thing is that not all cults are bad. If the group is legitimately trying to find the truth and they’re purpose is to better mankind then they will stand up to the scrutiny and they will persevere. If they are continually pressuring people to commit before they hear the whole story, or if they lie or use nebulous rewards or undefined fear of an enemy as a tactic to get your servitude then you should realize that this group may be destructive and needs to be avoided.

A cult defined is basically any group or organization where dedicated, willing members surrender independent thinking and their lives for an idealistic sounding mission.

This definition literally points to any group that uses peer pressure and group dynamics to further an agenda. Thus creating a mindset where people would rather die or sacrifice those around them than go against the group.

It is a programming mechanism that we are all familiar with. Whether it is a religious influence, a political influence, or patriotism we have allowed ourselves to make the claim that we would be willing to sacrifice our time, our well being, and even our lives for that ideology.

Sometimes, however, there are things we give up little-by-little when we are being manipulated.

We lose our integrity, and self-responsibility, little-by-little and become dependent on those who are controlling us. When they tell us of a threat and urge us to agree upon it, we are willing to give up everything even our lives to eliminate that threat.

Last Sunday, CNN’s Brian Stelter appeared on his show Reliable Sources and claimed in all seriousness that those who support Trump are part of a dangerous cult and that he uses mind control to get people to follow him.

Now while I will agree that there are some followers of the President that have taken their devotion to cult status, the idea that he is a cult leader that does mind control experiments on people puts Stelter in the “bad conspiracy theorist” category.

Stelter’s virtue signaling rang high on the hypocrisy curve as the mainstream media that he serves has been well known for use of propaganda, emotion-driven analyses, and unwillingness to allow people to come to their own conclusions with regard to anything political in this country.

Literally, everything mentioned in the report by Stelter and his guest are actually attributes and techniques used by modern progressive mainstream media.

I laughed out loud when Stelter asked cult expert Steven Hassan to be his guest. Hassan is now peddling his new book “The Cult Of Trump.”

I actually interviewed Hassan on my show to comment on destructive cults back in the year 2000. He was the first guest that I told to get off of my show because when I spoke of the MK-Ultra program and its relationship with numerous cult leaders he became angry and when I brought up the CIA’s Subproject 43 and CIA Psychologist Louis Jolyon West, Hassan praised him as a mentor and I just could not continue the interview.

Indeed, any discussion of CIA “mind-control” endeavors, such as the infamous MK-Ultra, would be incomplete without West, who enjoyed a long and lucrative career in the field or torture and mind control.

In fact, many people do not know that the so-called sleeper assassin program was headed by none other than Louis Jolyon West.

In a document released under the Freedom of Information Act, for example, it was revealed that more than five decades ago, the CIA sought to set West up in a clandestine laboratory to perform “mind-control” experiments with hypnosis and LSD. A portion of the experiments with LSD and other drugs in which West was enmeshed at the CIA’s behest were exposed in the mid-1970s by the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, chaired by Senator Frank Church.

Many people do not know that Dr. Louis Jolyon West is the reason why every time there is a mass shooting, conspiracy theorists will talk about possible MK Ultra programming and whether or not the killer was on psychotropic drugs.

Dr. West was the CIA’s default psychologist who was notorious for carrying out experiments that rivaled Joseph Mengele.

West was the scientist who actually killed an elephant named Tusko using LSD. Within five minutes he collapsed to the ground and one hour and forty minutes later he died. It is believed that the LSD was the cause of his death, although some speculate that the drugs the researchers used in an attempt to revive him may have contributed to his death.

West contributed to the early work which resulted in, among other things, the death of tennis pro-Harold Blauer in an experiment with a mescaline derivative in New York City in 1953.

The Senate Select Committee’s investigation revealed drugging of unsuspecting targets, electric shocking to obliterate memory and “programming” individuals to kill — acting under psychiatric control.

For example, Dr. West was always sought after to comment on many well known “sleeper” Manchurian Candidates like Lee Harvey Oswald and Patricia Hearst, the Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapping victim turned bank robber.

He officiated over Jack Ruby’s psychiatric evaluation, he also was consulted for evaluation of alleged RFK assassin Sirhan Sirhan, Timothy McVey, David Koresh, Jim Jones, and Marshall Applewhite of the Heaven’s Gate cult.

He was also consulted about O.J. Simpson or at least until West died in 1999.

Whenever there was an assassination or a mass murder with a Lone Nut responsible, West seemed to always have a connection to them in some way which was suspicious at best.

According to West, Jack Ruby suffered from “major mental illness apparently precipitated by the stress of his trial and its aftermath.” West’s opinion forestalled Ruby’s death sentence, and the convicted murderer died of cancer in prison.

West was one of four psychiatrists named to examine Patty Hearst before her 1976 trial in San Francisco. The panel found her sane and able to stand trial but, in West’s words, “psychologically damaged as a result of torture by the SLA.”

The doctors urged that she be treated for mental illness before the trial, a recommendation ignored by the court. West said in a San Diego speech after her conviction: “The government finished the destruction of her life started by an anti-government group.” President Jimmy Carter commuted Hearst’s prison sentence in 1979.

West studied torture and brainwashing during the Korean War when he was an Air Force doctor at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas. Asked to determine why American prisoners of war had falsely confessed to engaging in germ warfare, West determined that guilt could be instilled by solitary confinement and prolonged sleeplessness as well as by physical abuse.

He continued his studies of brainwashing over the years, along with his work in post-traumatic stress syndrome, alcohol, and drug abuse, pain, sleep problems, dreams, and hypnosis.

West prominently in the research and development of the invisible war—which was a deep state operation where intelligence agencies produced assassins to take out foreign leaders and Manchurian sleepers that were triggered to kill politicians in the United States.

His public career appears like a carefully constructed espionage cover.

There were many outgrowths of the MK Ultra program that were called subprojects.

One such subproject was Subproject 43.

The proposal submitted by West to the CIA, was titled “Psychophysiological Studies of Hypnosis and Suggestibility” with an accompanying document titled “Studies of Dissociative States”.

Between 1974 and 1989, West received at least $5,110,099 in grants from the federal government, channeled through the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), a major funding conduit for CIA programs. Many millions more poured into the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute that West headed, including over $14 million in federal funds in one fiscal year before he stepped down.

Before stepping down as director of the Neuropsychiatric Institute, West reportedly allowed psychiatric “treatments” that were more suited to brainwashing, “mind control” or a torture chamber than for resolving mental troubles. It was reported in 1976, for example, that Neuropsychiatric Institute psychiatrist Ivar Lovass had used electric cattle prods for “aversion therapy” on children.

As one newspaper stated at the time, “Farrell Instruments Company, the same firm which supplies other shocking equipment for UCLA’s ‘Clockwork Orange’ experiments on 3- to 12-year-old boys … recognizes that aversion therapy techniques are often cruel. An example, the company says, ‘is the use of cattle prods which have high voltage that produces skin destruction.’ Dr. Lovass and his partner in psychiatry, Dr. George Reker, however, favor the use of — and have used — cattle prods on children who are not mentally ill or criminal or who have not violated any law or rule — young boys merely thought to be ‘effeminate.’”

Lovass, hired by West, also allegedly shocked 5-year-old twins to “modify” behavior, with jolts administered through a grid system in the floor that enabled the psychiatrists to blast the children wherever they moved in the room.

Despite the violence that marked the work of West and his cohorts, or perhaps because of it, he enjoyed influence in the psychiatric community, serving for example on the National Advisory Council to the NIMH. From his positions, he could have charted a far more humane and helpful course for mental health, rather than brain-damaging drugs and electric shock.

As part of his legacy, the NIMH continues to squander billions in taxpayer dollars to fund research on brain-damaging substances, rather than genuine cures. The true cost — impossible to measure in money — lies in the Americans now dead from psychiatric drugs and electric shock or, still living, existing as little more than vegetables.

The secrecy and false information that for decades cloaked West’s activities continue to shroud the effects of the treatments he promoted and which are still in use.

West was responsible for the Cult Awareness Network even though he was responsible for giving many cults their start and when it comes to commentary about mass murders and MK Ultra – and the so-called drugs these killer are on – it was Dr. West that created these theories because he was the man behind them.

West headed the American Psychological Association (APA) trauma response team that rushed to Oklahoma City in the wake of the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building. Timothy McVeigh, convicted of the bombing, was examined by John Douglas of the FBI’s Psychological Profile Unit, who determined that McVeigh was “an easily controlled and manipulated personality.”

A programmed sleeper – just like Lee Harvey Oswald, Jack Ruby, Sirhan Sirhan, and others.

Boston mobster James “Whitey” Bulger alleged he had been subjected to weekly injections of LSD and subsequent testing while in prison in Atlanta in 1957.

The CIA insists that MKUltra-type experiments have been abandoned, although Canadian investigative journalist Elizabeth Nickson (whose mother had been a subject) claims that they continue today under a different set of acronyms. Victor Marchetti, who had held several positions at the CIA before resigning in 1969, stated in 1992 that the CIA routinely conducted disinformation campaigns and that CIA mind control research continued. He called the claim that the program had been abandoned a cover story.

Many people may not know that some of the more prominent cult leaders were allegedly programmed in programs similar to MK-Ultra. Some of the more prominent names involved were Marshall Applewhite who was involved with “curing” his homosexuality prior to becoming the leader of the Heaven’ Gate cult. He heard voices and believed that he was Jesus. He did projects for the government creating mentalist programs to remote view subjects and possibly communicate with aliens before he coerced his 38 followers to commit suicide in 1997.

There are also other candidates that were allegedly part of the assassin club provided by the Black-ops groups that use drugs and brainwashing to create the sleepwalker killer. John Hinklely Jr., the would-be assassin of Ronald Reagan was allegedly programmed by agents that worked directly with George Herbert Walker Bush. The plot was that if Reagan was out of the way Bush would be president. Neil Bush, who at the time was an agent for Amoco Oil, told Denver reporters he had met Scott Hinckley, John Hinckley’s brother at a surprise party at the Bush home January 23, 1981.

This was nine weeks John attempted to assassinate President Reagan, which would have elevated Bush Sr. to the presidency In an incredible coincidence, on the morning of March 30 [the day of the Reagan assassination attempt by John Hinckley, Jr. Neil was panning another meeting with Scott. MK-Ultra was also known as Artichoke and there were several different programs associated with the original programs hat used biological contaminants and the use of LSD.

It was revealed in June 2000 that Unabomber Ted Kaczynski met with Henry A. Murray an associate of Louis Jolyon West , , in 1959 on his third day at Harvard and every week thereafter. Interestingly, Ted Kaczynski’s Mk-Ultra Codename was “Lawful” – he was a good follower. He was also linked to the Tylenol poisonings that happened in Chicago in 1982.

Son of Sam killer, David Berkowitz was allegedly drugged and programmed in the MK Ultra program and believed that a dog named SAM was speaking to him giving him orders to kill.

Now it is being revealed that Hitler’s Nazi scientists, the same scientists that provided the methods for MK Ultra had taught dogs to speak. The Beltway Sniper case also had all sorts of MK Ultra programming overtones, from calling cards of death, to numeric death signatures and even trigger words read by the police to get them to wake up and turn themselves in.

Lee Boyd Malvo, the younger killer in the Beltway Sniper case believed that he was in The Matrix and was influenced by The Matrix movies to believe that he was in a video game. His partner in crime, John Allen Mohammed was trained as a sniper at Fort Lewis and worked in psychological operations. It is obvious that both were brainwashed to go about mass murder throughout Washington DC.

Brainwashing has always been the modus operandi of the Deep State and with intelligence groups infiltrating the media, we are now seeing the low move of trying to explain away support for Prescient Trump as cult-like and while it may be that he has cult-like support to ignore the political derangement from the left is laughable.

If you remember the same was said of Barack Obama, however it was not a talking point supported by a cult expert that praises the likes of Louis Jolyon West.

When the media comes forward and tells you of political cults, they become self-serving and push their bias in favor of their own ideologies.

The media no longer has a voice of its own and relays most of what it says with the approval of the State Department.

The mere form of government cannot safeguard a nation from falling into the depths of corruption. You can elect any Tom Dick or Harry into the presidency and they still would not be able to protect the nation from swinging towards despotism and it is becoming evident that the people of the United States of America are witnessing that partisanship cannot be the determining factor in “values” and the substantive process of running a government.

George W. Bush was considered a President with Nazi philosophies. Obama was called a Nazi by conservatives and now the left calls Trump a cult leader.

The intelligence war is obviously in play and there is now a concerted effort to demonize the President by calling him the leader of a dangerous cult.

Our mainstream thinking is that our home, our government, our system is too great to fail. We need to bring into perspective the reality those who place themselves above us, will soon see their end too. The whole machine is showing signs of corruption. This spans the entire political spectrum, from republican to democrat. Ambition, while admirable, can also be detrimental if it has its foundation in lawlessness and uses the pain of others for unknown ends. This nation will eventually become undeveloped and we will no longer have the luxuries we once cherished.

The media stands accused of painting a picture of a very dark America that needs to revolt and carry out whatever means necessary to secure a left vote or administration. We have seen violent protests which have been ignored liberal media outlets and have been spotlighted by conservative groups as threat to our national security.

This imbalance is actually affecting Americans that feel that their way of life is being threatened. The continued onslaught of this activity will not stand with most Americans and backlash is inevitable.

By definition, any extreme right or left-wing group that uses violence for a political goal are considered domestic terrorists.

As attacks domestically increase so, does the body count and the outright insurrection of liberal leaders against conservative ones deepen the divide and eventually, there may be an all-out assault in many communities across the United States.

As many knowledgeable Americans will openly admit, battle lines have been drawn across the political and cultural frontier. This division is perhaps most conspicuous on social media, where friends and family who disagree with your political worldview get the ‘nuke option’ and are effortlessly unfriended with the push of a button.

This is a worrying development.

The real danger will come when Americans from both sides of the political divide stop talking and start erecting extremely dangerous barriers around their political belief systems.

When organized armed assaults become more common and it is evident that the assailants are doing so to make America great again or because those who wish to truly make America great are gunned down because someone deems them fascist- we will know that America is about to have a curtain call.

There is a cult brewing in America and that is a cult of death based in political sectarianism – this is what happens in many Muslim countries.

The predominantly left-leaning US media has just entered its third consecutive year of open warfare against Donald Trump. This non-stop assault risks aggravating political passions to the point where ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome’ snowballs into something completely beyond our ability to control, a trigger for subversive behavior – a trigger for potential assassins that are leftovers from the MK-Ultra programs that were first implemented by Dr. Louis Jolyon West.
