The Day the Music Died

It is well known that one of the most important missions of the United States military is supporting the drug trade. More research reveals how those drugs are used to destroy Americans, particularly those influential musicians who have the potential to derail US imperial wars  or to demand greater social justice.

It is well known that one of the most important missions of the United States military is supporting the drug trade. More research reveals how those drugs are used to destroy Americans, particularly those influential musicians who have the potential to derail US imperial wars  or to demand greater social justice.

While these chronicles have discussed some of the macro issues in the Anglo-American drug trade, John Potash described in a more anecdotal and tactical fashion the ways in which the CIA has used drugs to destroy people like John Lennon, Tupac Shakur, Curt Cobain, Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, among the more prominent artists caught in the scope of American and British intelligence. We would also add to that list Jim Morrison and Janice Joplin.

Researcher and therapist John Potash gave a fascinating interview with Sean Stone to discuss the findings of his book documenting CIA’s MK ULTRA program which conducted many forcible experiments in mind control.

The uses of drugs, such as LSD and heroin, as instruments of US policy are so well known that it should not even require detailed substantiation for knowledgeable readers. Potash noted how CIA agents have given court testimony to this fact, making denial of this phenomenon absurd. It was not without fact that Maxine Waters proclaimed that the CIA and FBI were distributing drugs to inner city youth. Her quick silencing proved her point.

Others such as Dr Jim Willie and Executive Intelligence Review have provided both systemic and anecdotal evidence of US policy to promote drugs, with the Golden Triangle and Golden Crescent being 2 major flash points for American dominance in the drug trade. Majors wars have been fought to control these heroin sources.

Major personalities in the Bush Crime Syndicate are knee deep in the drug business as Daniel Hopsicker documented, including his account of how the BCS murdered Barry Seal when his lips were about to get too loose. Seal was on the verge of exposing George Bush for his drug crimes.

Thus it is no surprise, not even of the eye brow raising variety, to hear Potash describe how the CIA targeted major entertainers for destruction due to their influences on political views. One such example was Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones who was drowned to death by CIA and MI6 goons in England.

CIA had planted drugs on Jones, and in fact pressured Mick Jagger to use LSD in 1967, the very year in which “Paul McCartney” advocated LSD. It was no coincidence. Jones had been very vocal about the US war in Viet Nam, espousing positions contradictory to the Johnson administration and his plutocratic backers.

When the US government denied Jones a visa to tour with the Stones, he threatened to form a super group with Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon, whereupon he was promptly murdered. The thought of those men opposing the war was too much for the Queen and Johnson to stomach.

Jimi Hendrix was also destroyed through drug use by his manager Mike Jeffery who even confessed that he had Hendrix murdered. Hendrix’s sin, of course, was that he was opposed to the Viet Nam war, one of whose aims was securing the Golden Triangle for the BCS.

Prior to having Hendrix murdered, Jeffery planted drugs on him at airports and got him addicted to LSD. When Hendrix sobered up and realized that Jeffery was his saboteur, he planned to fire him, but not before Jeffery, who worked for MI6, got to him first.

Timothy Leary was the classic CIA agent who promoted drugs by advocating tuning in, turning on, and dropping out. His mission was to so compromise the minds of activists, especially influential youth, that they would cease to be effective in opposing the wars and injustices of the ruling elite.

Leary worked closely with Billy and Peggy Hitchcock Mellon who rented for a pittance their Milbrook estate in upstate New York to lure kids to acid tests run by CIA. The Mellons of course were fantastically wealthy people who resented the Student for a Democratic Society, and efforts to end the Viet Nam war.

By doping them with drugs, and in most cases without their consent, CIA immobilized students' activism. One of the more prominent groups associated with the Mellons and CIA was the Grateful Dead, originally known as the Warlocks. While Potash demurs about their witting involvement in the acid parties, we disagree strongly.

The case of Curt Cobain was one of the more interesting ones given that the CIA used MK ULTRA subject Courtney Love to get Cobain addicted to heroin. Potash describes her sordid past, whose father was a manager of the Warlocks. When Cobain sobered up, he was murdered.

One interesting footnote about Love is that one of her sexual customers – she was a prostitute from at least the age of 16 – was David Packard of Hewlett Packard and an under-secretary of defense in the Reagan administration.

Stone asked Potash about the beneficial aspects of LSD to which Potash responded that there were none, an answer based in part upon his own personal usage of LSD. Stone had suggested the tired bromide that LSD opened the mind, allowing it to make insights which would otherwise be inscrutable, such as those in technological innovation.

Potash remarked that not only did his personal experience, and those of others, such as Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, show otherwise, but that formal studies documented that LSD was deleterious to mental function even after nearly 20 years since cessation.

Unfortunately, Potash is wishy-washy on legalization of drugs. We admit that we flirted with the idea for a while, but realized, after reading Drugs, Inc. that it was wholly a bad idea. It is not low level drug cartels which control the drug trade, but British aristocracy, including the crown, and American plutocrats who do so. Thus the money flows into their coffers to sustain the drug trade, and vicious aggression against weak nations.

Furthermore, cheap drugs is the goal plutocrats since it makes them affordable to the masses, and increase consumption to the point that huge societies such as China can be easily controlled through widespread drug addiction.

People would do well to read Potash’s books on the drug subject and how it is used as a weapon against Americans.
