Devils in the Heartland: The ritualistic killing of Arlis Perry

June 25, 2012

Written by: Kristen Grace

Nearly four decades have passed since a young woman from Bismarck was murdered in a satanic ritual inside a church in Palo Alto, Calif. The brutal killing of Arlis Perry even today remains unsolved, but the secret of the cult that many people believe was responsible for her death, The Process Church, lives on. And so do the rumors.

The horrific murder of the 19-year-old newlywed made headlines across the nation after Perry’s mutilated, nearly nude body was found Oct. 13, 1974, on the floor of the Stanford University Memorial Church in Palo Alto.

(Photo by Matt Bunk) Jon Martinson, a former professor at Bismarck State College, believes members of a cult in North Dakota played a role in the murder of Arlis Perry in 1974. Martinson is shown in front of the hills behind the University of Mary, which long ago filled in a series of caves that were rumored to be used by cult members to hold rituals that included animal sacrifices.

Perry’s murder was investigated by detectives from the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department who suspected the killer or killers lived in the neighborhoods surrounding the university. But in Bismarck, other rumors were circulating.

Arlis Perry’s in-laws, Duncan and Donna Perry, were shaken when told that she had attempted to convert members of a satanic cult in Mandan to Christianity. It would take a best-selling book from an investigative journalist from New York City to uncover that Perry’s murderers may have been from her hometown.

Jon Martinson, former psychology professor at Bismarck State College and lifelong Bismarck resident, vividly recalls the Perry murder and members of a possible satanic cult being on the streets of Bismarck. At one point, several years after Perry was murdered, Martinson assigned his class the task of trying to track down satanic cult activity.

“I believe it’s possible that people in North Dakota were involved in (Perry’s) murder in some way,” Martinson said. “Over the years, however, that’s been very difficult to prove.”

Arlis, whose maiden name was Dykema, was a devoted Christian who was involved in many school activities and organizations while attending Bismarck High School, where she met her future husband Bruce Perry. Brad King, a Bismarck dentist who was a classmate of Arlis and Bruce, recalls their romance as being a prime example of “young love.”

After she attended what was then called Bismarck Junior College for a year, Arlis married Bruce in August 1974 prior to moving to Palo Alto, where Bruce was already an undergraduate student. By Oct. 1 of that year, Arlis landed a job as a receptionist at a law firm called Spaeth, Blase, Valentine and Klein.

It was at the law firm’s office where she was visited by a mystery guest the day before she was killed, an appearance that continues to puzzle those who attempted to solve the crime.

Witnesses described this person as a man in his early 20s who was five-foot-10-inches tall. He wore jeans, a plaid shirt and had blond, curly hair of normal length. Co-workers reported that Perry seemed upset by the visitor, who they thought was her husband. However, the identity of the visitor remains unknown today, and may be an important clue in the murder mystery.

On the night of Oct. 12, 1974, a Saturday, Arlis and Bruce were walking out to mail a letter and got into an argument about air pressure in their car’s tires, according to sheriff’s reports. Arlis went off by herself around 11:50 p.m. to pray at Stanford Memorial Church. That was the last time Bruce saw Arlis alive.

Around 3 a.m. the next morning, Bruce called campus security after Arlis failed to return home. Shortly before dawn, her body was found partially hidden under the pews where she had been praying. She had been choked, beaten and sexually assaulted. Detectives found semen at the scene, and retrieved a partial handprint from a candle that was used in the assault.

An autopsy later revealed that Arlis Perry was killed by a blow from an ice pick punched just behind her ear. The way she was laying in the chapel led detectives to believe it was a ritualistic killing. At that time, it was recognized as one of the worst crimes ever on a college campus.

At first, Bruce Perry was the primary suspect, but detectives soon became convinced he had nothing to do with the murder. The investigation later turned into an unsolved mystery due to a lack of leads.

Nearly 13 years later, Maury Terry, author of a best-selling book, “The Ultimate Evil,” would argue that the investigation in Perry’s murder was “halfheartedly pursued.”

SON OF SAM

About two years after the brutal death at Stanford, the streets of New York City reverberated with fear of a killer with a .44 caliber gun, who became known as “the Son of Sam.” Over the course of a year, six young people were killed and seven others were wounded in a series of eight separate attacks.

Terry, then a New York Post reporter was among those writing stories about the Son of Sam killings.

“It was the biggest thing going on in the whole region,” Terry said in an interview with the Great Plains Examiner. “I got wrapped up into the story the same way everyone else did, but when I started reporting I said, ‘This doesn’t add up at all.’”

In August 1977, a 24-year-old postal clerk named David Berkowitz was arrested as the Son of Sam and promptly confessed to acting alone in the shootings. Terry believed that important parts of Berkowitz’s confession sounded scripted or contradictory. The New York City police closed the case, but Terry continued his own investigation.

Eventually, the Queens (N.Y.) district attorney and the Yonkers Police Department concurred with Terry’s determination that Berkowitz did not act alone. Five .44-caliber shootings had occurred in Queens, and Yonkers was the suburban city where Berkowitz lived during the year of the Son of Sam attacks.

Berkowitz himself also subsequently confirmed Terry’s investigation, admitting he actually did two of the Son of Sam attacks (killing three people) while fellow members of a satanic cult he belonged to did the others.

Following his 10-year pursuit of the Son of Sam investigation, Terry wrote “The Ultimate Evil.” Surprisingly, the book begins with the Perry murder in the Stanford University Chapel. During his enduring investigation, Terry became convinced that Perry’s murder at Stanford was connected to the Son of Sam murders via a nationwide satanic cult called the Process Church of the Final Judgment.

The Process Church was formed in England in the 1960s after Robert and Mary Ann De Grimston couldn’t resolve issues with the Church of Scientology. They developed their own church and soon were labeled Satanists because they worshiped both Christ and Satan. The couple believed that at the end of the world, Satan and Christ would collaborate; Christ would judge the living and dead, and Satan would execute the judgments.

Berkowitz, Charles Manson and William Mentzer, the convicted killer of Hollywood producer Roy Radin, were all believed to be members of the Process Church or one of its related spinoff cults.

The police closed the Son of Sam case, but Terry continued his own investigation. Over time, during interviews with Berkowitz and
other sources close to the cult, Terry found a link connecting the murder of North Dakota native Arlis Perry and the Son of Sam shootings.

Terry also connected the 1978 murder of John Carr, who lived at the Minot Air Force base, to the cult. Carr was shot in the head at his girlfriend’s house on the base; the police initially ruled it as a suicide, but later determined it was a “probable homicide.”

Carr’s father, Sam Carr of Yonkers, was said to be an inspiration for the term “Son of Sam.” Berkowitz stated that John Carr’s death was the work of members of the cult group. Berkowitz also told Terry the group likely killed Carr because he was untrustworthy due to heavy drug use and other bizarre behavior. Carr had been diagnosed as a schizophrenic.

Berkowitz would later name Carr as one of the Son of Sam shooters. He also named at least one unidentified cult member from Minot, along with Mentzer, as participants in the killing spree, along with Carr’s brother, Michael, who was killed in a 1979 car wreck in New York
City. Other shooters and some accomplices have yet to be publicly identified.

The death of John Carr led Terry to Minot where he interviewed Lt. Terry Gardner of the Ward County Sheriff’s Department, who had received a book from Berkowitz during Carr’s murder investigation called the “Anatomy of Witchcraft.”

Berkowitz wrote a chilling note in a margin of the book. It read: “Arliss (sic) Perry. Hunted, stalked and slain. Followed to California.” Berkowitz admitted he authored that frightening clue.

“Why would he make it up? He had no motive, no reason,” Terry said. “He’s confessed to three murders, he’s not getting out.”

Terry’s investigation also included a trip to Stanford where he retraced Perry’s steps before her murder. He concluded that as many as four people were involved in the Perry murder, including Mentzer and one or more cult members from Bismarck.

To this day, Terry believes he knows the identities of at least two cult members from Bismarck. “I think one of them was the law firm visitor,” he said. “And one of those two still lives in Bismarck.”

Terry said Arlis most likely did something the group decided she had to die over. “She might have heard or seen something she shouldn’t have,” he said. “They may have feared she would expose them.”

Or, Terry speculates, Perry found out some prominent Bismarck residents were involved in cult activity. “Someone in Bismarck OK’d this, and someone had the hooks to get help on the West Coast,” he said. “This was a pretty sophisticated operation.”

 

 

SKEPTICISM IN BISMARCK

In Bismarck, rumors continued to circulate that well-known men and women were part of a satanic cult that drank blood and sacrificed animals at Pioneer Park and the caves behind the University of Mary.

“There were a lot of religious groups coming through town at the time,” said King, the Bismarck dentist who went to school with Perry. “I remember seeing people dressed in priest’s outfits. But instead of white collars, they wore red collars and sported upside-down crosses draped around their necks. I think they were called the Holy Order of MANS.”

When “The Ultimate Evil” was published in 1987, much of Bismarck was skeptical of Terry’s theories. But Martinson, who was then a psychology instructor at BSC, was convinced that Terry was on the right track.

“I heard most often, you have a New York City author trying to sell books,” Martinson said. “Folks would say: ‘If something like this was going on around here, we’d know about it.’ And that those who knew Arlis would have said: ‘If she was being stalked, we’d know about it. And how can the writer get information that we can’t?’”

“North Dakotans are often suspicious of the outsiders investigating their city,” Martinson said.

Martinson assigned his psych students to conduct field investigations of the claims in Terry’s book. But those efforts came up empty.

“It was like water running through your fingers,” Martinson said. “It was so elusive, you’d think there was something, you’d go, and there was nothing there. We would search for rituals in parks and cemeteries. In class we’d say that the (the cult members) are one step ahead of us. Someone is telling them about us.”

Martison said it was a possible that someone in his psychology class was tipping off local cult members about the class’ research.

King, however, is unconvinced that Terry’s theories about Perry’s death are correct.

“It didn’t surprise me that someone came out with some kind of conspiracy around her murder,” he said. “I don’t know if I agree with the author that she was stalked from Bismarck to California. I remember a lot of weird religious stories going on around here in that time, like covens dancing under the full moon and rituals taking place down by the river bottoms. But in her case, I think she was at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

King recalls being interviewed at his office about the Perry murder by detectives from California during preparation for a 10-year class reunion. “The police heard a rumor that someone in our class had set up an altar for her, but it was just a couple of photos of her along with other classmates who passed away,” King said.

Around the time of his 30th class reunion, King called law enforcement in Santa Clara County to see if there had been any breaks in the case, but there was no new information.

The local media seemed to handle the possibility that local citizens might be involved in a satanic murder at Stanford University as unreliable. Reporting on the rumors was not pursued until “The Ultimate Evil” was published.

The Bismarck Tribune published an article in late 1988 with the following headline: “Halloween sets off search for Satan.” The story briefly mentioned North Dakota’s ties mentioned in the book but focused more on the action the police saw that November when they escorted “carloads of teens” away from the university’s grounds where they were looking for cult activity and the caves.

Kathleen Atkinson, who worked at the University of Mary, stated in the Tribune article: “There was never any activity on the hill until this book used it as a reference point. Talk only came as a reaction to that, making the rumors self-perpetuating.”

However, the witch-hunts continued until the late 90s when the caves were filled in by the university to stabilize the hill the college stands on.

“It’s very important to know that it was Berkowitz himself who raised the connection to (the University of) Mary, and he did it in late 1979 – nearly eight years before The Ultimate Evil was published,” Terry said. “Nothing about the Mary tie to Arlis’ death was made public until the book came out. But Berkowitz knew about cult activities there all along. And I also confirmed that rituals had been occurring there in the 1970s.”

COLD-CASE PURSUIT

Detectives with the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department continued to investigate the unsolved murder of Arlis Perry until just a few years ago, using DNA technology and handprint databases that weren’t around at the time she was killed. But those efforts have failed to uncover any new leads.

Arlis’ parents, Marvin and Jean Dykema, who still reside in Bismarck, told the Examiner that they stayed in contact with the Santa Clara Sheriff’s Department for more than three decades after their daughter’s death.

Jean Dykema said they stopped calling about five years ago when detectives stopped returning their messages. “I’ve pretty much given up,” she said.

Ken Kahn, one of the original detectives assigned to the case, pursued Terry’s theory by interviewing Berkowitz at Attica State Prison in New York, but Berkowitz refused to provide additional details. Kahn later told newspaper reporters that Berkowitz may have been toying with Terry and investigators.

Terry said investigators could have done more to solve the case.

“I spent a fair amount of space in that book backing up what Berkowitz said, and I supported it 50 ways to Sunday,” Terry said. “If they are so smart in California, the case could have been solved years ago. They should have been knocking down doors in Bismarck, but they didn’t do that. There is a lot I would do, but I can’t force people to talk. I don’t have subpoena power. I did what I could. And if I can do more, I will.”

Martinson said he has been in contact with Terry in the years since “The Ultimate Evil” was published and has seen evidence to support the theory that there is a connection between the Son of Sam murders, Perry’s murder and people who lived in North Dakota.

The strongest link, Martinson said, is that Berkowitz admitted to spending time with cult members in Minot, including Carr, shortly after the Son of Sam murder spree began. That connection was documented in Terry’s book.

What wasn’t documented in the book is just as compelling: Martinson said Berkowitz recognized a man from Bismarck during a jailhouse interview when he was shown a series of photographs of people who Terry believed may have been involved in Perry’s murder. Berkowitz identified the man in the photograph as someone he had met during a cult meeting in Minot.

Martinson said he, too, has seen the photograph, although he declined to name the man who was identified by Berkowitz.

“When Berkowitz identified the man in the photograph, it confirmed (Terry’s) suspicions that that may have been the visitor at the law firm the day before Perry was killed,” Martinson said. “And it’s entirely possible that Berkowitz met that person while he was in North Dakota.”

Whether Perry’s murder was the act of an underground cult with connection to the Son of

Sam continues to be a mystery. But the legacy of The Process Church of the Final Judgment continues to prosper.

“It (the church) has changed its name about five times and keeps a low profile. And in their current disguise, they have made tons of money,” Terry said. “And some of the original members are still in it.”

As Terry stated in his book, there are multiple devils out there and the group is still very much alive.

10 Ways to Protect Yourself From NLP Mind Control

10 Ways to Protect Yourself From NLP Mind Control

NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming is one of the world’s most prevalent methods of mind control, used by everyone from sales callers to politicians to media pundits, and it’s nasty to the core. Here’s ten ways to make sure nobody uses it on you… ever.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a method for controlling people’s minds that was invented by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s, became popular in the psychoanalytic, occult and New Age worlds in the 1980s, and advertising, marketing and politics in the 1990s and 2000s. It’s become so interwoven with how people are communicated to and marketed at that its use is largely invisible. It’s also somewhat of a pernicious, devilish force in the world—nearly everybody in the business of influencing people has studied at least some of its techniques. Masters of it are notorious for having a Rasputin-like ability to trick people in incredible ways—most of all themselves.

After explaining a bit about what NLP is and where it came from, I’m going to break down 10 ways to inoculate yourself against its use. You’ll likely be spotting it left, right and center in the media with a few tips on what to look for. Full disclosure: During my 20s, I spent years studying New Age, magical and religious systems for changing consciousness. One of them was NLP. I’ve been on both ends of the spectrum: I’ve had people ruthlessly use NLP to attempt to control me, and I’ve also trained in it and even used it in the advertising world. Despite early fascination, by 2008 or so I had largely come to the conclusion that it’s next to useless—a way of manipulating language that greatly overestimates its own effectiveness as a discipline, really doesn’t achieve much in the way of any kind of lasting change, and contains no real core of respect for people or even true understanding of how people work.

After throwing it to the wayside, however, I became convinced that understanding NLP is crucial simply so that people can resist its use. It’s kind of like the whole PUA thing that was popular in the mid-00s—a group of a few techniques that worked for a few unscrupulous people until the public figured out what was going on and rejected it, like the body identifying and rejecting foreign material.

What is NLP, and where did it come from?

“Neuro-linguistic programming” is a marketing term for a “science” that two Californians—Richard Bandler and John Grinder—came up with in the 1970s. Bandler was a stoner student at UC Santa Cruz (just like I later was in the 00s), then a mecca for psychedelics, hippies and radical thinking (now a mecca for Silicon Valley hopefuls). Grinder was at the time an associate professor in linguistics at the university (he had previously served as a Captain in the US Special Forces and in the intelligence community, ahem not that this, you know, is important… aheh…). Together, they worked at modeling the techniques of Fritz Perls (founder of Gestalt therapy), family therapist Virginia Satir and, most importantly, the preternaturally gifted hypnotherapist Milton Erickson. Bandler and Grinder sought to reject much of what they saw as the ineffectiveness of talk therapy and cut straight to the heart of what techniques actually worked to produce behavioral change. Inspired by the computer revolution—Bandler was a computer science major—they also sought to develop a psychological programming language for human beings.

What they came up with was a kind of evolution of hypnotherapy—while classical hypnosis depends on techniques for putting patients into suggestive trances (even to the point of losing consciousness on command), NLP is much less heavy-handed: it’s a technique of layering subtle meaning into spoken or written language so that you can implant suggestions into a person’s unconscious mind without them knowing what you’re doing.

Though mainstream therapists rejected NLP as pseudoscientific nonsense (it has been officially peer reviewed and discredited as an intervention technique—lots more on that here), it nonetheless caught on. It was still the 1970s, and the Human Potential Movement was in full swing—and NLP was the new darling. Immediately building a publishing, speaking and training empire, by 1980 Bandler had made over $800,000 from his creation—he was even being called on to train corporate leaders, the army and the CIA. Self-help gurus like Tony Robbins used NLP techniques to become millionaires in the 1980s (Robbins now has an estimated net worth of $480 million). By the middle of the decade, NLP was such big business that lawsuits and wars had erupted over who had the rights to teach it, or even to use the term “NLP.”

But by that time, Bandler had bigger problems than copyright disputes: he was on trial for the alleged murder of prostitute Corine Christensen in November 1986. The prosecution claimed that Bandler had shot Christensen, 34, point-blank in the face with a .357 Magnum in a drug deal gone bad. According to the press at the time, Bandler had discovered an even better way to get people to like him than NLP—cocaine—and become embroiled in a far darker game, even, than mind control. A much-recommended investigation into the case published by Mother Jones in 1989 opens with these chilling lines:

In the morning Corine Christensen last snorted cocaine, she found herself, straw in hand, looking down the barrel of a .357 Magnum revolver. When the gun exploded, momentarily piercing the autumn stillness, it sent a single bullet on a diagonal path through her left nostril and into her brain.

Christensen slumped over her round oak dining table, bleeding onto its glass top, a loose-leaf notebook, and a slip of yellow memo paper on which she had scrawled, in red ink, DON’T KILL US ALL. Choking, she spit blood onto a wine goblet, a tequila bottle, and the shirt of the man who would be accused of her murder, then slid sideways off the chair and fell on her back. Within minutes she lay still.

As Christensen lay dying, two men left her rented town house in a working-class section of Santa Cruz, California. One was her former boyfriend, James Marino, an admitted cocaine dealer and convicted burglar. The other, Richard Bandler, was known internationally as the cofounder of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), a controversial approach to psychology and communication. About 12 hours later, on the evening of November 3, 1986, Richard Bandler was arrested and charged with the murder.

Bandler’s defense was, simply, that Marino had killed Christensen, not him. Many at the time alleged he used NLP techniques on the stand to escape conviction. Yet Bandler was also alleged to actually use a gun in NLP sessions in order to produce dramatic psychological changes in clients—a technique that was later mirrored by Hollywood in the movie Fight Club, in which Brad Pitt’s character pulls a gun on a gas station attendant and threatens to kill him if he doesn’t pursue his dreams in life. That was, many said, Bandler’s MO.

Whatever the truth of the matter, Bandler was indeed let off, and the story was quickly buried—I’ve never spoken to a student of NLP who’s ever heard of the murder case, I’ll note, and I’ve spoken to a lot. The case hardly impeded the growing popularity of NLP, however, which was now big business, working its way not only into the toolkit of psychotherapists but also into nearly every corner of the political and advertising worlds, having grown far beyond the single personage of Richard Bandler, though he continued (and continues) to command outrageous prices for NLP trainings throughout the world.

Today, the techniques of NLP and Ericksonian-style hypnotic writing can be readily seen in the world of Internet marketing, online get-rich-quick schemes and scams. (For more on this, see the excellent article Scamworld: ‘Get rich quick’ schemes mutate into an online monster by my friend Joseph Flatley, one of the best articles I’ve ever read on the Web.) Their most prominent public usage has likely been by Barack Obama, whose 2008 “Change” campaign was a masterpiece of Ericksonian permissive hypnosis. The celebrity hypnotist and illusionist Derren Brown also demonstrates NLP techniques in his routine.

How exactly does this thing work?

NLP is taught in a pyramid structure, with the more advanced techniques reserved for multi-thousand-dollar seminars. To oversimplify an overcomplicated subject, it more or less works like this: first, the user (or “NLPer,” as NLP people often refer to themselves—and I should note here that the large majority of NLP people, especially those who are primarily therapists, are likely well-meaning) of NLP pays very, very close attention to the person they’re working with. By watching subtle cues like eye movement, skin flush, pupil dilation and nervous tics, a skilled NLP person can quickly determine:

a) What side of the brain a person is predominantly using;

b) What sense (sight, smell, etc.) is most predominant in their brain;

c) How their brain stores and utilizes information (ALL of this can be gleaned from eye movements);

d) When they’re lying or making information up.

After this initial round of information gathering, the “NLPer” begins to slowly and subtly mimic the client, taking on not only their body language but also their speech mannerisms, and will begin speaking with language patterns designed to target the client’s primary sense.

An NLP person essentially carefully fakes the social cues that cause a person to drop their guard and enter a state of openness and suggestibility.

For instance, a person predominantly focused on sight will be spoken to in language using visual metaphors—”Do you see what I’m saying?” “Look at it this way”—while a person for which hearing is the dominant sense will be spoken to in auditory language—”Hear me out,” “I’m listening to you closely.”

By mirroring body language and linguistic patterns, the NLPer is attempting to achieve one very specific response: rapport. Rapport is the mental and physiological state that a human enters when they let their social guard down, and it is generally achieved when a person comes to the conclusion that the person they’re talking to is just like them. See how that works, broadly? An NLP person essentially carefully fakes the social cues that cause a person to drop their guard and enter a state of openness and suggestibility.

Once rapport is achieved, the NLPer will then begin subtly leading the interaction. Having mirrored the other person, they can now make subtle changes to actually influence the other person’s behavior. Combined with subtle language patterns, leading questions and a whole slew of other techniques, a skilled NLPer can at this point steer the other person wherever they like, as long as the other person isn’t aware of what’s happening and thinks everything is arising organically, or has given consent. That means it’s actually fairly hard to use NLP to get people to act out-of-character, but it can be used for engineering responses within a person’s normal range of behavior—like donating to a cause, making a decision they were putting off, or going home with you for the night if they might have considered it anyway.

From this point, the NLPer will seek to do two things—elicit and anchorEliciting happens when an NLPer uses leading and language to engineer an emotional state—for instance, hunger. Once a state has been elicited, the NLPer can then anchor it with a physical cue—for instance, touching your shoulder. In theory, if done right, the NLPer can then call up the hungry state any time they touch your shoulder in the same way. It’s conditioning, plain and simple.

How can I make sure nobody pulls this horseshit on me?

I’ve had all kinds of people attempt to “NLP” me into submission, including multiple people I’ve worked for over extended periods of time, and even people I’ve been in relationships with. Consequently, I’ve developed a pretty keen immune response to it. I’ve also studied its mechanics very closely, largely to resist the nonsense of said people. Here’s a few key methods I’ve picked up.

1. Be extremely wary of people copying your body language.

If you’re talking to somebody who may be into NLP, and you notice that they’re sitting in exactly the same way as you, or mirroring the way you have your hands, test them by making a few movements and seeing if they do the same thing. Skilled NLPers will be better at masking this than newer ones, but newer ones will always immediately copy the same movement. This is a good time to call people on their shit.

2. Move your eyes in random and unpredictable patterns.

This is freaking hilarious to do to troll NLPers. Especially in the initial stages of rapport induction, an NLP user will be paying incredibly close attention to your eyes. You may think it’s because they’re intensely interested in what you’re saying. They are, but not because they actually care about your thoughts: They’re watching your eye movements to see how you store and access information. In a few minutes, they’ll not only be able to tell when you’re lying or making something up, they’ll also be able to figure out what parts of your brain you’re using when you’re speaking, which can then lead them to be so clued in to what you’re thinking that they almost come across as having some kind of psychic insight into your innermost thoughts. A clever hack for this is just to randomly dart your eyes around—look up to the right, to the left, side to side, down… make it seem natural, but do it randomly and with no pattern. This will drive an NLP person utterly nuts because you’ll be throwing off their calibration.

3. Do not let anybody touch you.

This is pretty obvious and kind of goes without saying in general. But let’s say you’re having a conversation with somebody you know is into NLP, and you find yourself in a heightened emotional state—maybe you start laughing really hard, or get really angry, or something similar—and the person you’re talking to touches you while you’re in that state. They might, for instance, tap you on the shoulder. What just happened? They anchored you so that later, if they want to put you back into the state you were just in, they can (or so the wayward logic of NLP dictates) touch you in the same place. Just be like, oh hell no you did not.

4. Be wary of vague language.

One of the primary techniques that NLP took from Milton Erickson is the use of vague language to induce hypnotic trance. Erickson found that the more vague language is, the more it leads people into trance, because there is less that a person is liable to disagree with or react to. Alternately, more specific language will take a person out of trance. (Note Obama’s use of this specific technique in the “Change” campaign, a word so vague that anybody could read anything into it.)

5. Be wary of permissive language.

“Feel free to relax.” “You’re welcome to test drive this car if you like.” “You can enjoy this as much as you like.” Watch the f*k out for this. This was a major insight of pre-NLP hypnotists like Erickson: the best way to get somebody to do something, including going into a trance, is by allowing them to give you permission to do so. Because of this, skilled hypnotists will NEVER command you outright to do something—i.e. “Go into a trance.” They WILL say things like “Feel free to become as relaxed as you like.”

6. Be wary of gibberish.

Nonsense phrases like “As you release this feeling more and more you will find yourself moving into present alignment with the sound of your success more and more.” This kind of gibberish is the bread and butter of the pacing-and-leading phase of NLP; the hypnotist isn’t actually saying anything, they’re just trying to program your internal emotional states and move you towards where they want you to go. ALWAYS say “Can you be more specific about that” or “Can you explain exactly what you mean?” This does two things: it interrupts this whole technique, and it also forces the conversation into specific language, breaking the trance-inducing use of vague language we discussed in #4.

7. Read between the lines.

NLP people will consistently use language with hidden or layered meanings. For instance “Diet, nutrition and sleep with me are the most important things, don’t you think?” On the surface, if you heard this sentence quickly, it would seem like an obvious statement that you would probably agree with without much thought. Yes, of course diet, nutrition and sleep are important things, sure, and this person’s really into being healthy, that’s great. But what’s the layered-in message? “Diet, nutrition and sleep with me are the most important things, don’t you think?” Yep, and you just unconsciously agreed to it. Skilled NLPers can be incredibly subtle with this.

8. Watch your attention.

Be very careful about zoning out around NLP people—it’s an invitation to leap in with an unconscious cue. Here’s an example: An NLP user who was attempting to get me to write for his blog for free noticed I appeared not to be paying attention and was looking into the distance, and then started using the technique listed in #7 by talking about how he never has to pay for anything because media outlets send him review copies of books and albums for free. “Everything for free,” he began hissing at me. “I get everything. For. Free.” Obvious, no?

9. Don’t agree to anything.

If you find yourself being led to make a quick decision on something, and feel you’re being steered, leave the situation. Wait 24 hours before making any decisions, especially financial ones. Do NOT let yourself get swept up into making an emotional decision in the spur of the moment. Sales people are armed with NLP techniques specifically for engineering impulse buys. Don’t do it. Leave, and use your rational mind.

10. Trust your intuition.

And the foremost and primary rule: If your gut tells you somebody is fucking with you, or you feel uneasy around them, trust it. NLP people almost always seem “off,” dodgy, or like used car salesmen. Flee, or request they show you the respect of not applying NLP techniques when interacting with you.

Hopefully this short guide will be of assistance to you in resisting this annoying and pernicious modern form of black magic. Take it with you on your phone or a printout next time you’re at a used car sales lot, getting signed up for a gym membership, or watching a politician speak on TV. You’ll easily find yourself surprised how you allow yourself to notice more and more NLP techniques… more and more… don’t you think?

What Were 300 Gallons of Urine Doing Inside a Vacant Home in Newtown?

What Were 300 Gallons of Urine Doing Inside a Vacant Home in Newtown?123

When Newtown (CT) police officers responded to a State Police tip about suspicious activity at a rundown property in Sandy Hook they found the back door had been broken down.

Oh, and someone had been storing up to 300 one-gallon plastic jugs filled with urine inside the house.

For perspective’s sake, The Danbury News-Times notes that the average person “produces about six cups of urine a day.”

After sending a sample of the “brown liquid” to a drug lab, authorities determined that the substance was regular human urine and concluded that no criminal activity was taking place at the vacant residence.

The homeowner, whose name has not been released, has since been contacted, but no explanation has been given for his bizarre collection.

An environmental cleanup crew was dispatched to help local and state officials dispose of the jugs.

The house itself, which is in extremely bad shape, will need to be demolished if the owner is unwilling or unable to pay for repairs.

As for the urine, it is now the property of a nearby sewage-treatment plant.

Excerpt from “Finders” memoranda of Customs Service Special Agent Ramon J Martinez:

“The warehouse contained a large library, two kitchens, a sauna, hottub, and a “video room”. The video room seemed to be set up as an indoctrination center. It also appeared that the organization had the capability to produce its own videos. There were what appeared to be training areas for children and what appeared to be an altar set up in a residential area of the warehouse. Many jars of urine and feces were located in this area.”

bluebirdObjectives of CIA mind control experiments:

a. Disturbance of memory

b. Discrediting by aberrant behaviour

c. Alteration of sex patterns

d. Eliciting of information

e. Suggestibility

f. Creation of dependence

By the early 1970s the cover story, which was a “lie by telling the truth” stated that all experimentation was over and concluded several years previously.

Ewen Cameron’s horror house was wound up directly after the original Kennedy coup d’etat.

Saying the experiments were concluded, much like the recent announcement that HAARP experiments are over, simply means that the experimentation and prototyping phase has given way to the field operations and adoption of finished product phases.

A. Disturbance of memory

The internet in its current form has replaced the human memory. And to make sure that where the Brave New World pleasure addiction doesn’t stop people from seeking truth there is still a control mechanism, all human knowledge is being shoved, voluntarily or not, into the “cloud”, where there is no definitive version of any text.

This was the proud boast of the CIA decades ago- they will have succeeded perfectly when no one can be sure of any fact.

B. Discrediting by aberrant behaviour

A society ruled by  paedophiles and money hungry unconvictable criminals uses the lapdog media and hypnotism to make its enemies into demons to be persecuted by the unthinking masses.

C. Alteration of sex patterns

Girls, boys, girlboys, boygirls, legitimisation not of naturally occurring homosexuality or bisexuality but of violently disposed deviancy, B Spears wandering around her parents’ house naked at age 13, transexuality, pornographer satanists like the Dark brothers making music videos for soft core porn singers like Spears and Cyrus… “Gay” Marriage” which is the opposite of what the homosexual activists of the 60s and 70s campaigned for… Take your pick.

D. Eliciting of information

Facebook,Twitter (symbol: a BLUEBIRD), pretty simple stuff.

“If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear”

“Fuck off, nazi”

E. Suggestibility

Do you know anyone who watches television and believes its “news” programmes who isn’t mildly retarded in behaviour? There’s a reason it’s called TV PROGRAMMING

F. Creation of dependence

The military-industrial-political complex and the political-media-bureaucrat class require CONSUMERS not VOTERS. Votes are now meaningless and anything not a product is made invisible.

Process Church of the Final Judgment = Best Friends Animal Society

The Process Church of the Final Judgment Paris chapter

The Process Church of the Final Judgement was a religious organization founded by Robert and Marry Ann DeGrimston (ne Robert DeGrimston Moore and Mary Ann McClean). The group started as a splinter cult from Scientology in 1964 (as just “The Process”) and lasted until the mid 70s. The group lives on, without the DeGrimstons, as the Best Friends Animal Society.

Though somewhat forgotten today, the Process Church was well known and influential in its time. For example, legendary funk musician George Clinton included excerpts from the magazine in the liner notes for Funkadelic’s Maggot Brain and America Eats Its Young. However, they are probably best known for allegations that they influenced Charles Manson. The media attention that followed these allegations, and a split between the DeGrimstons, lead the Church’s demise.

Although he was never a member, Genesis P. Orridge was highly influenced by the Process Church of the Final Judgement and modeled some aspects of the Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY), which he co-founded in 1991, after the Church. After attempting to shut down the Temple in 1991, Orridge co-founded a collective variously called The Process, TOPI (either not an acronym, or “Thee Outer Process International”) or Transmedia Foundation. This new group spawned a mailing list and website called “The Process.” By 1998 Orridge and co-founder Ogre of Skinny Puppy had turned the mailing list and site over to the community and were no longer actively involved. The site and list continue to exist albeit quietly. Orridge started a new group called “One True TOPI Tribe” in 2010.
