How to Beat the Psychopaths in Power at
Their Own Game
By Cathy Garger
Imagine - if you can - not having a conscience, none at all, no feelings
of guilt or remorse no matter what you do, no limiting sense of concern for
the well-being of strangers, friends, or even family members. Imagine no
struggles with shame, not a single one in your whole life, no matter what
kind of selfish, lazy, harmful, or immoral action you had taken.
And pretend that the concept of responsibility is unknown to you, except as
a burden others seem to accept without question, like gullible fools.
From THE PSYCHOPATH - The Mask of Sanity
Almost any American over 5 years of age is aware that the United States is
involved in war. Most, if asked the exact number of wars in which we are
currently engaged, will say that two wars are underway. But how many
Americans actually realize that greater than two nations are being bombarded
by the United States with uranium weapons, illegal under international law?
Sometimes subtle wars are waged that go unreported and hidden from public
view. These operations can even be domestic - that is, they do not always
necessarily involve foreign enemies. Furthermore, such activities can go on
indefinitely, and may be covered up under various project names, often with
hidden agendas, carried out just under the radar, thus keeping the public in
the dark for many years.
The two wars that most Americans can tell you about involve the use of
radioactive uranium in weapons overseas in the Middle East. It is, in fact,
common knowledge throughout the world that the United States military has
been using uranium munitions in Iraq ever since 1991
http://www.brusselstribunal.org/DU-Azzawi.htm and in Afghanistan
With regard to weapons containing Depleted Uranium (DU), in 1996 the United
Nations called for the "need for their complete elimination".
Apparently, the UN position on the use of these weapons is of little concern
to those who run the US federal government. It is abundantly clear that
those in power do not concern themselves with such seemingly trifling,
"quaint" and antiquated notions of what's legal - and what's not - with
regard to international human rights and humanitarian law.
What many Americans - anti-war activists and war supporters alike - fail to
realize is that Uncle Sam's widespread use of Depleted Uranium has not been
merely limited to America's so-called "enemies" overseas. What does not yet
appear to be common knowledge is the absolute fact that a radiological
campaign is being waged in the more domestic, local "theatre"- the very
place 300 million of us call "home".
Depleted Uranium (DU) is currently being used inside our own country, right
outside in the very air where America's men, women, and children are trying
hard to breathe. Those who previously had no clue about these "dirty deeds
done dirt cheap" with this plentiful and inexpensive nuclear waste product
are now starting to write and ask just how could it be that our own
government shoots and explodes radioactive poison inside their own country -
the very air that they and their families also breathe?
It is precisely at times like these when we, the sane, take a great big sigh
and scratch our heads, look up into the polluted skies in the proximity of
what many consider to be the heavens, and ask if someone - anyone - can
please tell us exactly, precisely when did the good people of America become
our nation's own enemy?
While recently writing about the serious matter of California's radioactive
open air explosions, I reported
http://tinyurl.com/32op2g that there are dozens of US military
"test" firing ranges and National Laboratories where Depleted Uranium has
been fired, exploded, and burned within the United States, right out into
the open air. Some government "test" sites, in fact, such as the one in
Livermore, California, near San Francisco, have been at it for over fifty
How many of us knew that we were using the same poison on the Middle Eastern
"enemy" that we have been using right here, on our own people at home?
Certainly this was a story I must have missed out of the mouths of Katie &
Matt and Charlie & Joan all those years of watching what I thought was the
morning "news" on TV.
At the Livermore National Laboratory, the radioactive, microscopic
aerosolized particles from mock bomb blasts are photographed emanating from
these explosive "shots." This term, however, serves to minimize what are
actually colossal detonations of hundreds of pounds of radioactive
materials. Examine this picture carefully, if you will, and see if this
photograph taken way back in 1961 looks like a "shot" to you?
At other military "test" firing ranges and proving grounds, soldiers
practice using these radioactive weapons in preparation for combat.
Meanwhile, collective human "dose" information is meticulously captured
through the use of sensitive special filters positioned at various distances
from detonation sites. All of this data is carefully recorded and preserved
so as to prove to those who might happen to be paying attention that the
levels of radiation do not exceed "permissible" limits.
And while these elevated levels of radioactive poisons such as Tritium are
captured in filters and measured in the wines grown from local vineyards in
the valleys surrounding the Livermore Laboratory, so-called "acceptable"
collective radiation doses are met with ho-hum blasť. What comes to mind are
the words of the man called "the father of Health Physics", long-term
Director of Health Physics at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Dr. Karl Z.
Morgan, who admitted, "There is no safe level of exposure and there is no
dose of radiation so low that the risk of a malignancy is zero".
Certainly the US military and the Department of Energy must not have been
listening to Dr. Morgan and others like Dr. John William Gofman, who had
worked at the Livermore Laboratory and, at the request of J. Robert
Oppenheimer, helped produce Plutonium for the Manhattan Project. In a 1994
interview with the University of California Medical Physics professor,
Gofman was asked if the lowest doses [of radiation] will produce cancer?
Gofman's response was clear, "The answer is this: ionizing radiation is not
like a poison out of a bottle where you can dilute it and dilute it. The
lowest dose of ionizing radiation is one nuclear track through one cell. You
can't have a fraction of a dose of that sort. Either a track goes through
the nucleus and affects it, or it doesn't."
Tragically, radioactive contamination from atomic bomb blasts, simulated
mock bomb detonations, artillery "test" sites, proving grounds, and
live-fire air-to-ground ranges
has built up inside America - in our atmosphere, our water, our earth, our
vegetation, and in all living things. All these years of military and
National Laboratory "experiments" and what are loosely termed "tests" have
taken a toll both on our environment - and our health.
Perhaps the hardest pill to swallow, however, is the sobering reality that
even in the most unlikely event that all weapons-related activities
involving radioactive substances were to suddenly stop? Consider for a
moment only one of the radioactive materials, Depleted Uranium, which has
been used inside the United States for over sixty years. Since DU has a
half-life of 4.5 billion years, this means that the millions of tons of this
radioactive poison and toxic contamination that the military and weapons
"labs" have used through the current day will wreck havoc on our planet for
more years into the future than the earth has even been around.
Since 1945, our citizens have been taking in this contamination by eating
the food, drinking the water, and breathing the air. But sadly, these
poisons will not go away when we have all left this earth. These military
"tests" and National Laboratory
experiments - involving at least eighty (80) radioisotopes -
http://www.llnl.gov/tid/lof/documents/pdf/335150.pdf contain some of
the very deadliest substances in the world, which are even more hazardous to
our environment and human health than Depleted Uranium alone. And worse yet,
these toxic poisons are here to stay.
My God! We have wrecked this planet permanently - and there is no turning
It would be one thing if they did not realize and simply did not know what
they were doing with the use of radioactive materials such as Depleted
Uranium. But according to Dr. Doug Rokke, former U.S. Army's DU team health
physicist and former U.S. Army's DU Project Director, "The primary U.S. Army
training manual: STP 21-1-SMCT: Soldiers Manual of Common Tasks states
"NOTE: (Depleted uranium) Contamination will make food and water unsafe for
Today, virtually all fifty states are contaminated in one way or another by
Depleted Uranium, either from wind currents that bring the Uranium aerosols
into other areas of the country, or more directly, through mining,
production, manufacture, storage, detonations, burnings, and/or "testing" -
via artillery test ranges, air-to-ground drops, or ship-to-shore exercises.
Despite all this contamination, those in charge in America continue to use
this material, often in increasing amounts, and conduct "testing" of it, as
these activities are called, always working to devise more lethal weapons to
more effectively do greater harm to increasing numbers of people. Americans
are included in these hazards and forthright information is never given
regarding the actual devastating health impacts these toxic, radiological
munitions have on the unsuspecting population.
These radionuclides keep right on contaminating our air and environment and
ensure deleterious health effects for multitudes of generations to come.
Radiation wrecks havoc with DNA and causes permanent genetic cell mutation
our descendents will pass down to future offspring - forever. Remarkably,
even the EPA, the supposed protector of not the environment but, in
actuality, grand defender of the aims of Empire, acknowledges on its website
that: "Radiation can cause changes in DNA, the "blueprints" that ensure cell
repair and replacement produces a perfect copy of the original cell. Changes
in DNA are called mutations:"
DNA changes caused by radiation notwithstanding, at the Lawrence Livermore
National Laboratory, the maximum annual amount of radioactive materials,
including Depleted Uranium and Tritium, that are permitted to be detonated
in the densely populated greater San Francisco Bay/San Jose area was
increased eight-fold on November 13, 2006 from 1,000 pounds to 8,000 pounds.
These now-larger explosions are being performed under the guise of
"stockpile stewardship". What this boils down to is the simulation of
various types of bombs through photographing, analyzing, and then recording
the way that radionuclides travel through the air. The ultimate unstated
goal, however, appears to be to harm as many humans as possible. Why else
would such tests be conducted in the close proximity of ten million people?
This radiation is being exploded, shot, burned, and fired into our air on
purpose, and even the EPA admits that the radiation harms cells and the
genetic material of American babies yet to be born. Can there then be any
doubt that those who use bombs, bullets, missiles, open air explosions and
burnings as dispersal methods by which to blanket our atmosphere and
radioactively contaminate our earth are entirely void of conscience?
Admittedly, it is this psychopathic disdain for human life - and American
ones at that - that is difficult for the normal mind to even comprehend.
Clearly, these "users" and "pushers" of Depleted Uranium are not like you
and me. These psychopaths do not operate out of thought processes involved
with customary rationality. They feel no remorse for their amoral and
illegal actions. Nor do they exhibit compassion for those whose suffering
they cause. And while the healthy among us shed tears when contemplating the
vast amounts of pain and suffering experienced by foreigners and fellow
citizens alike who become sick and die as a result of this radioactive
poison gassing? Psychopaths can even find their health-destroying handiwork
Since these creatures who masquerade as regular humans live and breathe this
contaminated air, too, it's hard to grasp the twisted tendency that includes
not only harming others with these munitions of death but also exposing
their own selves to this devastating health risk in the process. Thus, these
puppets who carry out these radioactive explosive "shots" and conduct these
military burns and artillery tests carry out sacrificial Kamikaze missions
where their own health and prospects for the enjoyment of longevity are
apparently secondary to the mission of national "defense" by radiation at
Perhaps they feel like martyrs or something, willingly exposing themselves
to excess rems of radiation? These order-takers are clearly not only willing
to harm others and themselves in the process, but most incredibly, like the
dutiful military and non-military "soldiers" they are, sacrifice even their
own families by living in these communities near radioactive "test" sites
and passing down cell mutations and damaged DNA for their future generations
to carry along to their offspring. Such is the passionate devotion and blind
obedience to performing the mechanics of pre-calculated, permissible
radiological "doses" as part of the radiation dispersers' daily workday
Those who perform this self-sacrificing work at these military "test" sites
and national weapons laboratories as radiation-dispersers working under the
cover of national "defense" are programmed by the psychopaths to accept as
their patriotic duty the contamination by radiation of themselves, their
families, and the communities in which they live. These tasks, of course,
are rationalized by the radiation workers as loyal, nationalistic, patriotic
gestures considered within the realm of protecting America's "freedom" and
"liberty". For those firmly rooted in reality, however, one can clearly
question how freedom or liberty can be experienced when one is being
poisoned by the very same government that simultaneously feigns the role of
benevolent father figure by pretending to care about its charges and giving
assurances of its intent to safeguard the citizens' security and protection.
It is merely unthinkable for the average citizen to contemplate that its own
government would seek purposely to do him harm. Thus, psychopaths in power
have been allowed to get away with what is, in actuality, the most
unthinkable of all crimes - that of harming one's own. So what us normal
folk legitimately call "sick puppies" are good-to-go even with the prospect
of their own potential early demise - as well as that of their family and
It therefore comes as no surprise that the high level military and DOE
supervisors who order these "tests", the scientists who develop them, and
the order-takers who carry them out are fully aware of the effect that
radiation has on humans and all living things. For many years, in fact,
these quite literally "mad" scientists who worked in national weapons
laboratories sacrificially subjected themselves to human experimentation for
what they must have actually believed was in keeping with some great,
worthy, "noble cause".
A college course in basic psychopathology tells us all we need to know about
those who knowingly inflict physical harm on themselves and others. In
addition to what is an intent to do harm, or, at the very least, blatant
non-concern over inflicting personal damage upon their fellow man, the
psychopathic mind that cares not one whit for others can also possess a
blatant disregard himself, as well. And while the psychopaths' total
disregard for the sanctity of life is understood within the context of
serious mental illness, it is perhaps only mental health professionals who
may be able to shed some light on why the rest of us, the 96% of American
non-psychopaths, do not put an end to the radiation madness exhibited by
Why do all of us, that is, those who can legitimately claim sanity, allow
the four percent of the non-sane to desecrate, via radiation, not just our
own country but all corners of the planet - and outer space too, for that
http://www.armscontrol.org/act/2002_04/moltzapril02.asp Why do
we continue to allow these persons void of conscience to use their
radioactive poison "toys" - these weapons of death - upon ourselves and
citizens of other nations?
What is wrong with us - those who care about ourselves, our families, our
fellow citizens, and human beings throughout the world - for continuing to
allow such abuse at the hands of those who clearly do not care? Are "we the
people" perhaps, as psychiatrist Carol Woman, MD, writes,
http://www.counterpunch.org/wolman12302006.html "being abused by the
members of the Executive Branch, whose job it is to carry out OUR will, the
will of "we the people"? Is it possible that we, as Dr. Wolman states, are
"like a wife trapped in an abusive marriage, who feels that duty and
economics prevent her from leaving. Perhaps she still feels some love and
loyalty to the husband who mistreats her. Perhaps she feels she deserves ill
treatment, or that she's too weak and pitiful to do anything about it. She
becomes depressed and resigned to a dismal life"?
And, on the topic of what to do, rather than become "depressed and resigned
to a dismal life", Dr. Wolman offers, "When a woman is being abused by her
husband, it is commonly accepted that he is committing criminal acts, and
needs to be brought to justice." So with no serious actions on the part of
Congress, our Courts, and certainly, least of all, on the part of our
Executive Branch, what then, is exactly our problem?
It is merely common sense to realize that those who have no regard for the
sanctity of human life require removal from their positions of "leadership".
These individuals need to be sequestered away from civil society to a place
where they can be prevented from doing any further harm to themselves or
others. It is beyond the normal mind's capacity to even fathom how and why
these psychopaths - the same ones that invaded, occupied, destroyed, and
rendered uninhabitable two nations with the promiscuous use of tons of
radioactive munitions - are still in power. It is further unfathomable to
conceive why we continue to allow these humans-in-appearance-only to have
any control whatsoever over our vast stores of lethal radioactive materials.
In studying child psychopathology, we learn of young children who actually
enjoy torturing animals (such as exploding frogs) and setting ablaze
structures like dog houses and backyard sheds merely for the kick they get
from watching obliteration of life and conflagration. Not surprisingly,
these sick boys and girls grow up to be sick men and women. Apparently,
while their bodies grow into the outer casings of what passes as human adult
personhood, the apparent thrill of witnessing painful and catastrophic
devastation and grand, fiery displays of exploding Uranium-238 by these
aberrations of humanity apparently never goes away.
Case in point. There exists one such "subject" in a high level of power in
the country who the mentally ill have fashioned as their role model - a
psychopath who is ultimately the person in charge of killing large numbers
of people - who generally wears a facade of non-affect out of either disdain
or disregard for life in general. Even more horrifying is when an actual
smirk is worn that has been reported to chill non-psychopaths all the world
over to the very bone. And while Christians "in the know" are often tempted
to get close enough to take a peek at the scalp for the tell-tale triple 6
numbers, psychiatrists are instead tempted to perform a lobotomy to
eliminate that portion of the brain where the mental process of
contemplating the annihilation of other human beings takes place.
The rest of us, Americans of conscience with a normative intolerance for
harming other innocent people, can immediately recognize mental illness for
what it is. The poisoning of civilians in large numbers and then giving
repeated advance broadcasts as to who the next nation of innocents might be
on the list of contenders for receipt of future poison gas treatment is one
glaring indicator of serious and severely abnormal cognitive functioning.
So the big question is, how can - and why do - the vast majority merely sit
idly by while these madmen get to "act out" their pathological fantasies of
death and destruction? With virtually all of Congress clearly acting like
mind-controlled pod people in some "real world" invasion of body
snatchers-type horror flick, are the rest of us too under-informed, too
apathetic, too distracted, too un-empowered, too brainwashed in our "learned
helplessness", and/or too depressed to do anything effective to stop the
maniacal captains of America's radiological-powered ship in their tracks?
Does our nation's absolute obedience to authoritarian leadership, with its
unprecedented ravenous appetite for death and destruction, dictate that we
merely give up the fight for non-contaminated air, water, soil - and sanity?
Are we so programmed to play follow the leader (even when that leader swats
out human lives faster than at flies at a picnic) that we are conditioned to
go about our everyday activities - that consist almost entirely of basic
survival and mindless amusement - and completely ignore what is, most
arguably, purposeful genocide both here and abroad?
Are we so blinded beyond all hope that, instead of educating our neighbors
about the harm being committed even upon our own people, we continue to tune
mindlessly into television programming that would have us contemplate
nothing more significant than Britney's latest find-the-shaved-body-part
photo? Have we been lulled mindlessly, through media distractions and what
narrowly masquerades as "news" programs, to surrender any hope whatsoever of
opposing the madmen in power with their focused, intense Lust To Maim, Harm,
So far, the Psychotic Team in control of the United States government is way
ahead in winning this twisted and pathetically sick and sad, life-destroying
game. And as much as a crisis intervention of sorts might appear to be in
order for the deranged psychopathic "users" and "pushers" of this deadly
Depleted Uranium? Like the true blood-thirsty, "addicts" they are, no amount
of reasoning with these life-sucking vampires will ever get them to regret
the error of their ways and give up their killing "habit".
The non-rational who hold the keys to the inventory of radioactive materials
are incapable of listening to reason. Their complete absence of conscience
after committing horrific and unthinkable acts which would typically yield
remorse in any normal human tells us that the power holders are simply
incapable of stopping their pathological, genocidal, and suicidal ways on
The only way to effectively beat those in control at their deadly games is
to have equally brilliant and well-adjusted mental health professionals work
together to out-intellectualize the pathological national controllers at
their psychological warfare pursuits. It basically boils down to waging a
battle of the best and the brightest of the non-psychotic minds versus the
twisted, heartless ones in control who hold, with a vice-like grip, the
reins of America's power that's gone astray much like a locomotive train
that has jumped its tracks.
In this case, however, the train wreck of America's collective radiological
poisoning was meticulously orchestrated and pre-calibrated by nuclear
engineers and health physicists fully aware long ago that they were steering
the freight train off course into an irreversible nightmare zone - a place
where there would be no hope for remedial return - even before the train,
chock full of uranium, ever left the station.
Contrary to popular misconception, curing the ills of the United States
government is not an issue of the age old battle of good triumphing over
evil. Instead, it is a matter of the sane taking back control of power from
the insane. Admittedly, this is no easy task - when psychopathology has
completely permeated all three branches of government and the mainstream
media as well.
Never before has it, therefore, been so necessary to convene in magnificent,
concerted effort the collective brainpower of the wide awake psychological
experts from all over the world to figure out how to effect counter
operations against the comparatively few homicidal controllers who use what
the United Nations calls their "weapons of indiscriminate effects" upon both
foreigners and their own citizens, too.
In order to make this happen, we each need to find a few mental health
professionals and work to educate them around the sixty years of history of
America's own radiation poison gas holocaust. Believe it or not, many
Americans - even so-called "well educated" ones from the most prestigious
universities - still do not know half of what is going on. Their university
research centers, merely an offshoot of the federal government's tentacles
of control, do not typically permit the truth to venture too far astray from
the desired message of the Doctor Strangelove-types in control.
It is therefore imperative that we, those of sound mind who exhibit a heart,
a conscience, and good mental health, come now to the rescue of our
children's and grandchildren's future. With the issue of the well-being of
our offspring and their descendents in precarious balance, we must quickly
work to educate the non-aware around the use of radioactive substances that
are permanently poisoning our air, earth, and water. This simple tool,
education - if used liberally and quickly - is positively the most effective
weapon we possess in order to stop the increasing radioactive contamination
of America - and the rest of the world.
Getting the word out - that this radiation weakens, sickens, and kills all
forms of life - is our greatest hope of effecting a successful strategy to
stop the psychopaths in their tracks. With sheer numbers alone (Sane 96% vs.
Killing Psychopaths 4%) on our side? What we need desperately is massive
informational outreach to every sane man and woman around the globe.
Then and only then, together, we the people - or, rather, we the *sane*
people - can put an end to the psychopathological radiation poisoning of our
nation - and the rest of the world.
