Murder Under Hypnosis: The James Holmes Story Takes A Familiar Turn + Project ARTICHOKE

“The big key to the thing is that only the small secrets need to be kept. You can find just about anything the government is doing by going into scientific journals and doing research. But the big secrets are kept by public incredulity and your study and your experience is in an area which is not secret. All this has been known for a long time, but people don’t want to believe it and there is a great deal of denial.” – Walter Bowart, “The Secret History of Mind Control.”

A trained psychiatric professional can put someone under hypnosis and tell him to commit a certain act very easily. Sirhan Sirhan, the patsy who was blamed for the murder of Robert F. Kennedy, was put under hypnosis several times by a psychiatrist in his jail cell following the famous shooting in which he re-enacted the murder.

For more information, here is an excerpt from an article published in The Milwaukee Journal on March 25, 1969, called, “Sirhan Re-enacted Kennedy Killing Under Hypnosis”:

Sirhan Sirhan re-enacted the assassination of Senator Robert Kennedy while under hypnosis in January, it was revealed at his trial today.

The 25-year-old Jordanian, placed in a trance by a psychiatrist, Dr. Bernard Diamond, pulled an imaginary pistol from his belt and fired it convulsively as he shouted, “You son-of-a-bitch, you son-of-a-bitch.”

Sirhan re-enacted the assassination during an interview with Dr. Diamond in a prison cell in Los Angeles, the psychiatrist testified.

Dr. Diamond said he had hypnotized Sirhan on six separate occasions. He put him into a trance each time in less than 10 minutes by holding a coin in front of him and repeatedly ordering him to relax.

Keep this strange news piece from 1969 in mind when reading about Steven Unruh’s account of what James Holmes told him after the Dark Knight Rises shooting in July. According to Unruh, Holmes said he was programmed to kill by a psychiatrist. Unruh has no reason to lie. It is very possible that Holmes was under hypnosis while he was at the scene of the mass shooting on that night in July.

Sirhan Sirhan was put under hypnosis in 1969 by a psychiatrist in under ten minutes, so imagine what government psychiatrists can do with mind control subjects and government patsies in our era. Hypnosis is a science that can be used for deadly ends.

Paul Joseph Watson elaborates on the strange similarities between the Robert F. Kennedy shooting and the Dark Knight Rises shooting in his article, “Inmate: James Holmes Told Me He Was ‘Programmed’ To Kill by “Evil” Therapist”:

The parallels between Sirhan Sirhan and James Holmes are alarming. Both were described as behaving as if in a trance or under the influence of drugs, both cannot remember any of the details of the shootings, and in both cases eyewitnesses reported more than one gunman at the scene.

In both the RFK and ‘Batman’ shootings, eyewitnesses described other shooters, dismantling the “lone wolf” narrative. According to Nina Rhodes-Hughes, another man was shooting at RFK and the authorities tried to alter her account of what happened. “What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right,” Rhodes-Hughes said in an interview with CNN. “The truth has got to be told. No more cover-ups.” Sirhan’s lawyers also presented evidence that “two guns were fired in the assassination and that Sirhan’s revolver was not the gun that shot Kennedy.”

Similarly in the case of Holmes, eyewitnesses described two shooters, noting that one of the gas canisters was thrown from the opposite side of the theater to where the killer was standing. It has also been suggested that Holmes had an accomplice. Eyewitnesses described the killer talking on a cellphone before the shooting and then standing in the emergency exit and beckoning someone else over.

Holmes, a neuroscience student, was also fascinated with mind control. During his time at Salk Institute of Biological Studies, Holmes designed a computer program to alter mental states using flicker rates. Arizona shooter Jared Lee Loughner was also obsessed with mind control.

While there is no way to confirm Unruh’s account, he seems to have little motive in making it up out of fresh air. Added to the other unexplained inconsistencies surrounding the ‘Batman’ massacre, the story will only serve to bolster the view amongst some that the full story about the tragic events of that night has not yet come to light.

It is a pattern for government patsies to talk openly to fellow inmates about their nerve-racking experiences. David Paul Hammer, who was the inmate of Timothy McVeigh, another famous patsy, informed the world about the true nature of the Oklahoma City bombing in two books called, “Secrets Worth Dying For: Timothy James McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing,” and, “Deadly Secrets: Timothy McVeigh and the Oklahoma City Bombing.”

In May 2010, Hammer spoke with Alex Jones about his conversations with McVeigh in prison and what they revealed about the Oklahoma City bombing.

The Dark Knight Rises shooting was not politically motivated, as the Oklahoma City bombing was said to be, but it has had damaging consequences on the struggle for gun rights. The public perception of the virtues of civilian gun ownership is negatively affected by shocking shooting stories in which ordinary people are mercilessly murdered at public places.

Quickly after the traumatic incident in July, many in the mainstream media jumped on the gun confiscation bandwagon. They no longer held back their true opinions due to popular constraints.

The government-run media reported the shooting without checking the background of Holmes or informing the public about the history of government staged terror events in the United States. The media’s behaviour was a small clue that a bigger and sinister agenda was at work.

Unruh’s revelation about Holmes’s awareness of his own programming is another clue.

We would be fools to ignore these clues.

Project ARTICHOKE (also referred to as Operation ARTICHOKE) was a CIA project that researched interrogation methods and arose from Project BLUEBIRD on August 20, 1951, run by the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence.[1] A memorandum by Richard Helms to CIA director Allen Welsh Dulles indicated Artichoke became Project MKULTRA on April 13, 1953.[2][not in citation given]

The project studied hypnosis, forced morphine addiction (and subsequent forced withdrawal), and the use of other chemicals, among other methods, to produce amnesia and other vulnerable states in subjects.

ARTICHOKE was an offensive program of mind control that gathered information together with the intelligence divisions of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and FBI. In addition, the scope of the project was outlined in a memo dated January 1952 that stated, “Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self-preservation?
