Kind of finding this humorous but after your post, it said "500 Internal Error"

That's kind of truthful, too. lol Made me laugh. Poetic forum glitch.

CYBER-WAR PSYOPS WARNING:

Numerous conspiracy websites like this one function as disinformation and cointelpro operations run by western gov / mil.

They also function as honeypots and used for data mining purposes to profile forum users.

Many trolls on conspiracy sites will be spooks doing the work of their employers ~ USA / UK / Israel.
Some of them are bots and not human.

These 'posters' are paid operatives who are most likely employed by private companies contracted by alphabet agencies to run black propaganda campaigns on various conspiracy sites, some of which have been infiltrated and/or domains covertly purchased and completely taken over.

It's a major PSYOP aimed at internet users who are waking up.

There is some truth to this. On an aforementioned site that I used to work at, we discovered the presence of one of these employees. However, this isn't something "new" to target users that are "waking up". That was about 10 years ago.

And technically, if we're all the enemy then that implies we're all on the government payroll. As much as the government likes to overspend a lot, I somehow doubt that they are paying people to entirely populate forums just so they can psy op each other. So, kind of double misleading. Anybody with half a brain could or should be able to expect this but we tend to think that everyone that we talk to is "normal" (relatively, as in unpaid, just posting on their own whim). However, on that previously aforementioned site, we had just ONE and he was US based. He was targeting 9/11 and global warming discussions.

lol, Skittle...tea and crumpets?

Yep. Pretty much and just follow the instructions (which I always wanted to skip but it's kind of...uhh...necessary for cooking, lol). Nobody took the time to teach me to cook either so I took a gourmet cooking class in high school instead of opting to graduate early (also took a childcare class for similar reason :P). That's when I discovered that cooking is easy and I can make just about anything.

Which makes it even sillier when I still order take out most nights of the week, lol.

I'm so sorry. I can "get it" in a lot of ways. This thread sometimes seems like a really dark abyss and the ramifications are so severe that it's crushing. I guess that's why I have taken so long to try to really try to sort as much as I can in my life. Currently on month 6th of full stop. Haven't cut my hair in a year. Maybe it's pure stubbornness but I'm constantly questioning it all. Things don't look good but there are other possible sources of the mindfuckery that need to be eliminated. I think the reason why I do this is similar to just not wanting it to be true.

For anyone who is thinking the same, FIGHT. It's your life and yes, it is your choice, ultimately. But if there is one thing that I know is that there is a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. I refuse to think there isn't. I have changed. If they did indeed do something with us, I am not the same as I once was. I am no longer some machine that just processes everything. I don't even read the news anymore and if any of you are like how I once was, that should read as a major change. If I lost a good chunk of my life to someone else's ideals, then I'm sure as hell not going to let them get an ounce more out of me. The rest of my life is MINE. So don't give up. Fight for your life. I mean it.

Hang in there, please, yourself. I am so sorry.

he began retrieving his memories about 6 months ago, and this thread triggered that. also the nobody thread.

here's the thing: right after he made his first attempt, i randomly ended up at someone's house, and did a psychic reading. i saw immediately the guy was trained for RV. he was shocked when i asked. how did you know? he said...

then i asked if he was a part of the gifted ca 70's program...more shock, yes yes yes....

so i spent the last two weeks holding space for my loved one...friday night he flipped out and went away...saturday i went back to the guy's house, cause i was afraid for him also. well, he is doing fine, and showed me some VERY intense stuff...files...he never showed anyone before.

i now know WAY more than i ever wanted to know about the gifted program and mind control. i always thought it was bullshit....but i have experienced the truth in REAL TIME, not online conspiracy shit...this thread needs to get into healing...not just mental masturbation, like the rh- threads, LOL!!!! sorry, don't mean to sound crass but...not really in the pussyfooting frame of mind right now.

been up all night on a couple threads...this may not make a lot of sense cause i am just fucked in the head right now, but, here's one of them:

Thread: BATMAN SHOOTER has a blog...and WOAH!!!!!

it sounds like you got stronger...that is good...i wish he had stayed around to do the same. SO FUCKED. every time i see an F-15, or sit in the sun, or wait for the carrington, he's there...

Re: Were You Part Of The "Mentally Gifted Minds" Program In California Scools back in the 70's?
It's ironic for me to say this but this is an online conspiracy forum, or what I view as the internet's lunatic asylum, and that is the primary reason why I temper my judgment so much in regards to what has been shared here. Although I'm pretty damn confident that I can smell my own kind, I also don't dismiss the possibility that people could simply be yanking my chain, acting out a fantasy life or deliberately trying to mislead for the purpose of misleading. In other words, when it comes to trust, I have some amount of trust that many of the people that have posted here are telling the truth but it's a heavily tempered trust. The thing is, I'd never overtly call out bullshit on anyone on this thread because I know that, based on my own experience, there are some very serious aspects to this thread. I'm not going to sit there and trash what somebody else claims (unless it's really obvious)because what if I was wrong? I'm just not that kind of person. I think we all do that to some extent and it's probably very wise. We're not dummies. So my doubt is my strength really.

If you've actually uncovered something solid, then upload it and share it here. Don't just talk about it. I found that tape but that isn't something that I am even remotely comfortable with broadcasting on this thread (and I'm not even 100% sure that it had anything to do with the gifted program but could be that possible additional chef in my pot). A few on this thread have already heard it and, considering what it is, it's just disturbing. If you've got solid evidence, then do the right thing and share the actual documents. It's hard to heal when you don't know the nature of the damage.

Sorry if this came off aggressive. Been getting in major fights on my end now that I have something to shove up their noses.

Hey, I'm fairly new here and just saw this thread. I wasn't in California, but when I was 8, which would have been in 1985, I was identified as gifted. I.Q. of 166, and was told I was going to have to switch schools because my school didn't offer a gifted program. The next school year my parents moved to another state and I started the gifted program. I remember back when I was in preschool being taken from school to school by my mom for strange testing. I asked my mom about it later in life and she told me it was some kind of baseline testing to compare with other kids. In Alabama, where I was actually in the gifted program, I remember a lot of the same things. There were 5 of us from my grade that met twice a week for an entire day in the gifted room. There were strange quizzes about end of the world stuff, lots of books on UFO's and cryptids, and I do remember some videos. The videos I remember were documentaries about factories and civil rights stuff and they always gave me headaches. I also can speed read, have always been the fastest at every job I have ever done (I'm a structural design engineer in aerospace now), and have always just thought differently than everyone else.

The cryptids and UFO's made me giggle. OMNI magazine was probably the source of that stuff. Such an odd thing to have in a gifted program in a way. I ended up studying a purported cryptid for 7 years as I was in their vicinity. The funny thing was that I didn't disbelieve their existence in the slightest. What I questioned was the reports and how the viewers of them could have been misconstruing what they were seeing. Some of the information that I collected and theories to explain some of the most bizarre reports about this particular "cryptid" were being used, last I heard, in a lesson at a university. Of course, in true gifted fashion, I did not associate my actual name with it and kept my identity hidden through mandatory anonymity. I was sharing dangerous information and about a people that lived in my vicinity. I can almost see them teaching us to ask how these things could occur logically so that we don't close the box on their existence but instead, think outside of the box as to what it could actually be. You know what I mean? We'll just ignore the lifelong habit of mine to study things intensely, lol. Sometimes, I feel like I should be wearing a lab coat 24/7 because I'm always observing and studying "things".

Re: Were You Part Of The "Mentally Gifted Minds" Program In California Scools back in the 70's?
My dad kept Weekly World News around all the time. It taught me to think critically, being openly and mostly BS... I remember dad and I reading through and him saying what's true, what isn't? like a game. I think that, more than the program, has much to do with my skepticism, openness and love of cognitive dissonance.

lol, my dad used to buy those, too. Called them his "comics for adults". OMNI, Von Daniken, Mooney, and more--that was purely my mother. Got it from both sides and at school, lol.

I discovered Stichen and Von Daniken on my own, hours in the library at school and the large one that was a town over.

lol. One of my favorite memories was finishing up my work early in one of my history classes in high school and grabbing Richard Mooney's Gods of Air and Darkness to read out of my bag. My history teacher actually walked up and asked me what I was reading. I told her and she asked to borrow it for a couple days to read it herself. I was thoroughly humored by that and handed it to her. She gave it back with a little note saying how interesting it was that I was reading that book, lol. I wonder what the heck she really thought. :D

Everyone is mentally gifted. But sadly most people do not know it. And those that do, just don't know how to use the full capacity of their minds.

There's a reason why there is such a desperate attempt to push medications. There is a reason why so many people are told they have ADD, ADHA and etc. And there's a reason why we have television and video games. All of these are programming. They all hinder the extraordinary powers that every human mind is capable of.

The reason some of us were in these special programs in school is because we displayed certain behaviors or characteristics that teachers are trained to notice.

Agreed. Even though I do like playing video games, I often detect little themes within those just as much as I do within television shows or any other mass media. It is all programming and really, it all stunts the brain to extent (though I still chose to believe that playing a video game maintains my reaction speed lol). At the very least, they are time burning distractions that keep us from anything truly productive. I was thinking the other day about what it would be like if we no longer had television, the net, or video games and what it would be like to go back to the times where evenings were quiet, filled with card games, reading, music making or crafts. Was rather appealing to think about.

One thing though, is there any way that you would be kind enough to change your avatar? I do not do well with flashing lights at all. It hurts my mind and is a sort of trigger for me. I understand if you chose not to.
