Captain Midnight’s Secret Decoder Ring

Funny how the mainstream media insists the Illuminati don’t exist, yet never conducts research on the subject, treating it like a Tin Foil Hat delusion. The real study of history, however, involves penetrating a web of secret societies that plots war and revolution in order to engineer maximum profits. There are many layers to this onion and penetration of its inner core is unlikely in our time. But one can see enough shadows on the cave wall to at least raise some suspicions.

India and China were the primary economic engines at the dawn of history but lost considerable ground with the rise of European imperialism. But the end of the first World War really signaled the coming rise of the USA as future policeman of the globe. Secret societies are embedded into our DNA and were around before the dawn of history. Magic, religion and secrecy are welded together, essential tools for mass mind control, and even though magic and religion are the exact same thing, our Western world divides them into a manufactured dialectic of fundamentalist versus occultist. Religion was invented as a fulcrum for manifesting war. First, a self-appointed King anointed a Pope, and then the Pope anointed the King as chosen by God to lead the population into war against some infidel whose property could then be seized by the King.

At least one peace prophet tried to expose this scam early in the game. He was named Mani, and attempted to unite all religion to end war around 260 AD. Mani actually achieved the largest congregations of his time but only for a brief moment before vicious campaigns by the other religions murdered him, destroyed his legacy, and killed his followers who refused to reject Mani’s philosophies of non-violence. Mani was the most well-known Christian in the world before Constantine got control, but also the most well-known Buddhist and the most well-known Zoroastrian Magi. Yet today, nobody knows his name. After months researching a book on Jesus, I concluded Jesus was a mythical creation, and the version of Jesus crafted by Constantine was designed to replicate and replace Mani as the true avatar of his time. Many elements of Mani’s bio were worked into the Jesus myth, as was Mani’s appearance. Since Mani likely promoted cannabis oil for healing the lame and blind, it’s also likely cannabis disappeared from history as part of Mani’s erasure. Just as Moses was simply a Judaic interpretation of Zoroaster, Jesus originated as the Judaic interpretation of Buddha.

Popular religions are immense power centers, and all centers of power become corrupted over time. The more corruption, the more need for secrecy. The inner core of a power center will always seek alliances with other corrupt power centers and when these secret societies collide, even more powerful secret societies can be born.

George Creel

On April 13, 1917, President Woodrow Wilson created the Committee on Public Information, aka Creel Committee, named for George Creel, who trained a generation of propaganda experts, starting with Edward Bernays, nephew of Sigmund Freud. Creel’s primary mission was to lay psychological groundwork to convince America they wanted to enter the European war, something that was cleverly accomplished through manipulations of the mass media. Harold Gray was a journalist who enlisted for WWI and returned to the Chicago Tribune after the war and soon became a Freemason.  In 1924, he came up with the idea of a political cartoon based on a wayward, street-savvy teen he met on the streets of Chicago. “Little Orphan Annie” soon became a soap box for attacking all things socialist.

The key character other than Annie was Oliver “Daddy” Warbucks, a kindly munitions factory owner who had become filthy rich profiteering off WWI. Like many others on Wall Street, Warbucks lost his fortune when the markets crashed in 1929. And when FDR was installed a few years later, the comic became one of his primary critics. The powers-that-be were so incensed by FDR’s New Deal, they were actually plotting his removal and installation of a military dictatorship very similar to the overthrow of the Weimar Republic and ascension of a military intelligence officer named Adolf Hitler, who was aided by those same Wall Street forces (see Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler by Antony Sutton).

Smedley Butler

This plot was fortunately foiled by the courageous Major General Smedley Butler, who would write War is a Racket before being disappeared from the national stage. After being offered the job of first dictator in America, Butler played along in order to identify the major players and then rushed the evidence to an open session of Congress.

Horrified, Congress instantly sought shelter behind closed doors and when the smoke and mirrors cleared, Butler’s plot was declared a fantasy and Butler lost his otherwise sterling military career. Butler had been the darling of the national media up until that point, and had made the cover of Time after a successful campaign in Haiti, but he never returned to that cover because now he was an authentic whistleblower, and national magazine covers are reserved only for fake whistleblowers, like Daniel Ellsberg, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden.

The immensely popular Little Orphan Annie radio show (sponsored by the British malt-beverage company Ovaltine), was the first to deploy a decoder ring as sales gimmick. Since Annie was mixed up with the world of spooks and secret societies, she required knowledge of cryptography in the struggle to suppress the rise of labor unions. But when the show’s popularity began to fade, Annie was swiftly eclipsed by Captain Midnight’s Secret Squadron. Ovaltine continued sponsorship, but this show was actually under the direction of the Getty Oil company.

The Captain Midnight franchise was born inside a Chicago advertising agency. The star of the show was Captain Jim “Red” Albright, a former WWI Air Force pilot recruited by a mysterious but powerful person. Captain Albright was tasked with creating a squad of volunteers to fight foreign spooks, and if you bought enough tins of Ovaltine and mailed the packaging to the radio show, one could obtain a Secret Squadron ID card and a crude cipher machine for decoding messages transmitted during every show. Very similar to the sort of secret messaging that did occur during the World Wars when spook-run radio programs were relaying messages to spooks in the field behind enemy lines. Somewhat disappointingly, however, once decoded, the secret messages turned out to be instructions to buy more tins of Ovaltine.

Just as the Creel Committee was formed to seamlessly bring the USA into WWI, it appears Captain Midnight may have been designed to seamlessly bring us into WWII, and I say that because two months before Pearl Harbor, Captain Midnight exposed the Japanese plot to bomb Pearl Harbor, which should have been plenty of time to prepare against the onslaught, although maybe you know we remained woefully unprepared, possibly because great carnage was required to create enough blood lust to sweep the country into war on two fronts. At the time, the Captain Midnight show was probably the most listened to radio show by members of the United States Air Force. Designed as a kids show, it became wildly popular with adults, especially those in the armed forces.

I put this bit of propaganda alongside William Pearce’s The Turner Diaries for its Nostradamus-like intuition and ability to raise blood lust, as Pearce’s book predicted the use of airplanes as bombs flown by kamikazes and soon became the primary tool for inspiring the rise of violent, fanatical rightwing terror groups in the USA and Europe. For example, it was Timothy McVeigh’s favorite novel.

The social register (old money) is just another layer of the onion, and they have numerous secret clubs, where concerns and desires are discussed in the dark. And these clubs have magic ceremonies that draw on the same instincts as those that captivate the masses. No magic is real, unless, of course, you believe. And that is why those spooky Youtube videos concerning the Illuminati are fabricated rabbit holes leading the gullible into a time bomb. Anytime anyone tries to scare you with magic or religion, it is always a hoodwink.

The Missing Men in the Psychedelic Revolution

As the history of the psychedelic revolution is being written fifty years later, I can’t help but notice some of the most important characters are disappearing from the official narrative. And foremost among the missing men is Ronald Stark.

I recently watched The Sunshine Makers on Netflix concerning LSD chemists Nick Sands and Tim Scully, the duo who produced millions of hits of Orange Sunshine for The Brotherhood of Eternal Love out of Laguna Beach. I found it quite odd that John Griggs, Tim Leary and Ron Starks were left out of the story entirely. So I checked out the maker of this documentary only to discover it was Cosmo Feilding-Mellen, an English royal whose mom was involved with Nick Sands. I suspect she was also involved with Stark, who surfaced in England to recruit psychiatrist R.D. Laing to become the first psychedelic messiah. These characters were swimming in the same pond.

Laing worked for the Tavistock Institute at the time, the English equivalent of Fort Detrick’s MK/Ultra mind control matrix. But before that appointment, Laing made his career breaking fakers trying to slip out of military service as mental rejects, as in Ken Kesey’s One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. He’d created a new theory of mental illness along the way in which the crazy people were the sane ones simply creating another reality to escape a crazy world. When examining the actions of psychiatrists inflicting electric shock and other invasive trauma, and comparing that with the reactions of the patients, Laing concluded it was the system that was irrational.

But Laing was spooked by Stark’s elaborate plans for the Psychedelic Revolution he was plotting, so Stark left England and arrived at the doorstep of Tim Leary to make the same offer. Leary was living in upstate New York at the time, in an estate provided by Billy Hitchcock, one of the heirs to the Mellon fortune. Hitchcock became a primary money launderer and also the startup funder for Orange Sunshine. But it was Stark who provided the essential precursor.

At the time John Griggs was running the most important hippie secret society, The Brotherhood of Eternal Love, and he was the real hippie avatar you likely never heard of who has been written out of the story. When Leary got kicked out of that New York estate, he fled to Griggs, and affected a Griggs style, wearing Afghan silk robes and putting flowers in his hair and preaching universal love. That was all Griggs. Leary was a West Point graduate who did high-level government research on mind control. But he slipped off the leash and went native and joined the hippie revolution. And then he got lost in the wilderness of mirrors, because that revolution was being usurped from the moment it first appeared.

Meanwhile, Sands gave Griggs an experimental substance to test, and Griggs died shortly after ingesting it. This is when Stark showed up with more LSD than anyone thought existed and Stark forged a relationship with Michael Randall, who inherited the Brotherhood leadership. It was Stark who created the European distribution network for the Brotherhood.

He got ratted out in Italy and put in jail, but convinced a judge he really worked for the CIA and he got released. His death is cloaked in mystery and nothing is known for sure, except that he moved among the biggest drug smugglers and terror operatives and political officials of his time. He had global connections that reached into the highest levels of government and organized crime and the hippie counterculture.

So my question is, why is Ron Stark being left out of the story?
