RE: The Thule Society

1993 It becomes public knowledge that U.S. Chief of Staff Shalikashvili's father was a Nazi in Germany
during World War II in the Waffen SS.
1993 Diptheria outbreak reported in Russia and E.Coli outbreaks in the U.S. “Deep Lake flu” reported
at a lake in Washington State.
1993 Safe Handling Labels are ordered for meat in the U.S. Producers protest.
1993 National Reconnaissance Office awards Martin Marietta a contract for a new space-based wide-area
satellite system to “track Soviet ships and bombers.”
1993 Julianne McKinney from the Association of National Security Alumni, states that in the 1980's
federal mind control experiments began to heavily involve the use of children in ritual abuse, psy-chotronics,
and eugenics. Apparently, the wave of ritual child abuse allegations that swept the country in
the 1980s cloaked federal psychotronic and eugenics experiments in young children, involving institu-tions
like the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute. The term “screen memories” (See Matrix II), or “False
Memory Syndrome,” is a scapegoat negating the believability and viability of more than 12,000 citizens
who have put through this procedure. Experiments with psychotronics continue to be disguised, while
Nazi inspired doctors implant biometric tracking devices into nasal cavities and ear canals. Brain trans-mitters
can be tracked by Global Positioning Satellites.
1993 Sales of herbal products in the United States rose 70%.
1993 AT&T announces a future merger with McCaw Cellular in the U.S.
1993 On November 28, 1993, Canadian authorities discover that a story banned in Canada has been
printed in three U.S. newspapers. The Canadians stop and search all trucks entering Canada, and arrest
61 Canadians in possession of U.S. papers containing the forbidden information. The Canadians also
routinely black out U.S. television signals with “offending stories.”
1993 Cellular industry pays for and receives a study which deems cellular phones to be safe. University
of Utah, Dr. Om Gandhi. According to the editor of Microwave News, the results of the study do not
support this assertion. The “safe” results are published in U.S.A Today, Dec. 10, 1993, to try to head off
and minimize growing public concern after reports of cellular phones causing brain tumors.
1993 Planned Parenthood announces “condoms for females” in order “to protect against AIDS.” (Note:
Since AIDS is a scam, it is seen as population control in disguise).
1993 Associated Press releases article on August 18, 1993 claiming “no health risk for fluoridated
water,” as stated by the National Research Council and Dr. Bernard M. Wagner from the New York Uni-versity
School of Medicine. A statement that “132 million Americans drink water with .7 ppm fluo-ride.”
1993 Media announces that “world religious leaders press for disarmament.” The 1993 Parliament of
World Religions and the World Council of Churches (See Conspiracy of the 300). Refer also to Iron
Mountain Report, 1961.
1994 In March 1994, the London Sunday Times reports that Russia has a new superplague powder that
is so powerful that 400 pounds discharged in air burst bombs could kill 500,000 people. According to
the report, it is thought that the West has no antidote.
1994 The National Academy of Sciences reports that 95% of the chemicals used in perfumes and fra-grances
are derived from petroleum, and many of these chemicals are causing allergic reactions, central
nervous system disorders, birth defects, cancer, and autoimmune disease. The FDA is powerless to
remove these substances because by law the cosmetic industry is not regulated and exempt from listing all product ingredients. Many of the fragrance ingredients have been classified as neurotoxins, hazard-ous
waste disposal chemicals and sensitizers. Townsend Letter for Doctors 7/94.

1994 The January 17, 1994 Los Angeles Quake preceded by mysterious radio signals. Increased radio
signals including magnetic anomalies and electrical problems. Some in Los Angeles reported hearing
strong “sonic booms” prior to the quake. Sonic booms often precede Tesla induced events. (Early Warn-ing
Earthquake Network at San Jose, Jack Coles).
1994 W. R. Grace and company, through Agracetus was granted a patent to transgenic soybeans - the
first attempt to gain world control of a staple food crop. The soybean industry is worth $27 billion annu-ally
1994 The Soviets hold a May 1994 conference where they prepare a tightly coordinated plan to take
power. Socialism and Communism is described as the future of mankind. A restoration of the Soviet
Union is called for. It is expected that former Russian Vice President Rutskoi will gain power in Mos-cow,
and take control of Russia's powerful new biological, chemical and electromagnetic weapons.
1994 University of North Carolina finds that women employed in electrical trades are 38% more likely
to die of breast cancer. For men, the risk of breast cancer in those occupations is six times normal.
1994 In the United States (Aug. 94) a program begins in the mind control arena which involves the use
of scalar energy and photonic information fields, to last until December 1994.
1994 The Sunday Times in London (May 22, 1994) reports that the Western Blot “HIV” test gave a pos-itive
result to some 85% of African patients found to be “HIV” negative. Proteins from the leprosy
germ, which infects millions in Africa, can show up as a false positive for “HIV” (detected by p24 pro-tein
1994 Resolution Trust Company (RTC) places three senior criminal investigators who worked on the
Whitewater investigation on administrative leave.
1994 An emergency room doctor in Riverside, California, overcome by mysterious fumes while exam-ining
a dying woman files a $6 million lawsuit, claiming she caught a blood disease that ate away her
bones. The blood of the victim had an ammonia smell and contained unusual white and yellow crystals.
The emergency room doctor reveals she woke up with muscle spasms, numbness, and shortness of
breath after passing out in the emergency room.
1994 The government of Australia spends A$120 million funding biotechnology, A$30 million of
which goes to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), which has
researched transgenetics and seed genetics since the early 1970's. Australia was the first country to use
recombinant DNA biopesticides. Note: A dangerous development in transgenic research is the develop-ment
of plant species resistant to toxic chemical pesticides—permitting the poisoning of the people, but
maintaining the profit incentive to produce food. At the moment, $6 billion is spent in the United States
to achieve this objective. Perhaps worse is the transgenic research going on with animals, who are hav-ing
human genes spliced into their DNA. (Proto-Atlantean research tendencies?).
1994 Dietary Supplement Health Education Act of 1994. Under the law, the FDA has its role narrowed
relative to regulating the $2.5 billion supplement industry. The law places the burden of proof on the
FDA when it claims a product is unsafe (isn't that backwards?) Additionally, the law establishes a pres-idential
commission to review health claims on products. The law requires advertisers to prove claims
of cures or disease prevention, but permits claims about how vitamins (synthetic, yet) and supplements
promote good health. Manufacturers are to refrain from advertising health claims for vitamins, mineral
and herbal products and amino acids for 4 years. (1998).
1994 Science News reports that scientists are “now realizing” that certain chemical pollutants chemi-cally
mimic female hormone estrogen. The effect is that normal sexual development in human males is being affected. Testicular cancer has risen. Sperm count has dropped 50% in men over the last 40 years.

1994 The U.S. Commission for Immigration Reform, headed by former U.S. Rep. Barbara Jordan, calls
for a National Computer Database containing the names of every legal citizen or legal alien holding
Social Security numbers or Green Cards. Jordan urges Clinton to order a pilot program to test methods
of accessing such a database. The proposed registry received bipartisan support in Congress, but
alarmed privacy experts. (Notice that that they are dealing with “a pilot program to test access,” auto-matically
assuming that the registry is a done deal despite the lack of a national referendum).
1994 Tulsa World (1/11/94) revealed that Lawrence Livermore Laboratory has a secret 21 member
“Project Woodpecker” team that just won a special award from the CIA and the National Security
1994 Bernard Eastlund (see 1987 on HAARP) reveals in the May-June issue of Microwave News,

(U.S.A Today 9/21/94). (The same thing happened in the 1970's, didn't it?)
