Drugs Destroying Assange's Brain

In a British high-security prison, Julian Assange is being chemically tortured. The drugs being administered make people psychotic in the short run. The long-term effects are unknown.

There is great evil being perpetrated by Washington D.C. here and around the world.

A persistent terrible hate for life, liberty and humanity arrived on little cat feet and has taken over our country. This did not begin with Trump, but sadly it also is not going to end with him either.

Trump promised to drain the swamp, implying change, transparency and accountability.

Instead he brought in neoconservative king-makers and warmongers, and allowed their influence to grow disproportionately, while his co-dependents in the other party facilitate the agenda of death.

The criminal pursuit and indictment of Wikileak founder, Julian Assange is the proof in the pudding. The 40 page criminal complaint contains a lot of detail but not much crime. In fact, the "crimes" are more like descriptions of how journalism is done in the information age, if it is true that the job of journalism is to tell the stories, name the names, and state the facts that governments don't want told, named or stated.

In a normal world, none of this is worth much energy or attention. There is very little legally here to work with, and success so far on the part of the US Government has been solely via a reliable judge in the Eastern District Court of Virginia, and other people's money and other people's governments, beholden or paid by the US.

But in the world that exists today, we see these overblown aggressive tactics and we can feel the excitement, the goosebumps and the hot necks of the FBI and CIA suits as they make their bones.

Chelsea Manning is back in prison, ordered back into solitary. She is not the person she was after years of torture, isolation and chemical interrogation. Ironically, her cognitive function as a result of her previous treatment is likely to render any future interrogation useless in court, legally and practically. She received the Jose Padilla treatment, albeit refined by some years of USG practice. Her resultant mental malleability may have produced the ideal Soviet Amerikan Woman.

The US appears to be a nation of laws, and yet, we absolutely are not. One of many lessons and perspectives we gain from the study of Julian Assange is just that. US political influence and debt-funded largesse resulted in Assange's ejection from the Ecuadorian Embassy into the UK prison for terrorists in Belmarsh. US domestic corruption and misreading of the Constitution produced his indictment.

Furthermore, US government employees, from the DoD, FBI and the CIA have been interviewing Assange in Belmarsh Prison, prior to any extradition decision.

Interviewing is the wrong word. I'd like to say doctoring him, because it would be more accurate, except that word implies some care for a positive outcome. Chemical Gina has her hands in this one, and we are being told that Assange is being "treated" with 3-quinuclidinyl benzilate, known as BZ. What BZ does, from the New Yorker:

"Exposed soldiers exhibited bizarre symptoms: rapid mumbling, or picking obsessively at bedclothes and other objects, real or imaginary. ""The drug's effect lasted for days. At its peak, volunteers were totally cut off in their own minds, jolting from one fragmented existence to the next. They saw visions: Lilliputian baseball players competing on a tabletop diamond; animals or people or objects that materialized and vanished. ".

Soldiers on BZ could remember only fragments of the experience afterward. As the drug wore off, and the subjects had trouble discerning what was real, many experienced anxiety, aggression, even terror. Ketchum [Dr. James Ketchum, DoD Edgewood Arsenal, MD] built padded cells to prevent injuries, but at times the subjects couldn't be contained. One escaped, running from imagined murderers. Another, on a drug similar to BZ, saw "bugs, worms, one snake, a monkey and numerous rats," and thought his skin was covered in blood. "Subject broke a wooden chair and smashed a hole in the wall after tearing down a 4-by-7-ft panel of padding," his chart noted. Ketchum and three assistants piled on top of the soldier to subdue him. "He was clearly terrified and convinced we were intending to kill him," his chart said.

One night, Ketchum rushed into a padded room to reassure a young African-American volunteer wrestling with the ebbing effects of BZ. The soldier, agitated, found the air-conditioner gravely threatening. After calming him down, Ketchum sat beside him. Attempting to see if he could hold a conversation, Ketchum asked, "Why do they have taxes, income taxes, things like that?"

I'm looking for confirmation of this headline. I have promoted it because Karen Kwiatkowski has a good reputation. She is a retired Pentagon official. Her source claims:


"[Julian Assange] is presently under close observation in prison hospital because he has suffered 'severe transient psychotic episodes.' My source(s) indicate these episodes occurred after two sessions of coercive interrogation at the hands of UK and US officials. The source(s) stated the HUMINT interrogators used psychotropic drugs in the course of the sessions."

I'm horrified by this report.

If you are able to get confirmation from another source, please post the info. I tried looking myself but it was pointless. I don't have any connections and I'm absolutely sure they are keeping this report blacked out. I'm surprised that Karen's article hasn't been taken down already.

It's bad enough that Australia hasn't made a move (or a sound) to protect one of their citizens. But why is Britain allowing Americans to interrogate someone under their custody who's only charged with "skipping bail"??

So much abuse of power by 5 colluding countries, and the U.N. has no real power to offer... just "judgements".

I am wondering if his family could sue the British government for a billion pounds. at least. That is assuming that this is an accurate rendition of the facts of his incarceration.

This account if verified by another source is terrifying. What we are dealing with is not a case of allied countries working in concert to torture and destroy the person who found a way to empower the people of the world to learn what the globalists are doing to maintain their power, it is the lawless global corporate state itself which has rendered governments obsolete that is carrying out this criminality. We seem to be having a difficult time wrapping our minds around how far gone the idea of national sovereignty is already. Notice every country targeted for regime change is desperately trying to defend its sovereignty from the globalist corporate state. Assange, Manning, Snowden and a few others have shown a spotlight on this criminal conspiracy to rob us of our sovereign right to self determination. That is what terrifies the conspirators. If they can destroy Assange by breaking his mind with psychotropic drugs (illegally), they can do it to anyone. From there, we will be powerless to stop their absolute control of the planet.


How convenient and revealing that they've tricked most people in the Western world into hating the very people trying to save us.

The history of the CIA's Project MK-Ultra, working with Britain's Tavistock Institute to use psychedelic drugs against activists, is documented in the book and film, Drugs as Weapons Against Us: The CIA War on Musicians and Activists. It particularly has Paul Robeson Jr. talking about how they targeted his incredible activist singer father with BZ.
