Bill Bennett and the Great White Brotherhood
In the home of the brave, Jefferson turning over in his grave,
Fools glorify themselves, try to manipulate Satan. - Bob Dylan
Odd, how many impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible things are being spoken aloud these days in America. That's how Bill Bennett characterized his thesis that "you could abort every black baby in this country and your crime rate would go down." Perhaps that's also a fair description of the freewheeling hypocrite himself.
Bennett makes one of the wilder celebrity cameos in Cathy O'Brien's Trance-formation of America. It's not so much the sexual violence ("Bennett apparently found perverse pleasure in whipping me"), which by the time he turns up in the story has all but lost its power to shock, but the scene in what O'Brien calls the underground mind control lab of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center that is most weirdly notable.
O'Brien is lying on a metal table, having been administered a drug to create "total compliance":
In the darkness surrounding me, I could hear Bill Bennett talking, "This is my brother, Bob. He and I work as one unit. We are alien to this dimension - two beings from another plane."
The high-tech light display swirling around me convinced me I was transforming dimensions with them. A laser of light hit the black wall in front of me, which seemed to explode into a panoramic view of a White House cocktail party - as though I had transformed dimensions and stood amongst them. Not recognizing anyone, I frantically asked, "Who are these people?"
"They're not people, and this isn't a spaceship," Bennett said. As he spoke, the holographic scene changed ever so slightly until the people appeared to be lizard-like aliens. "Welcome to the second level of the underground. This level is a mere reflection of the first, an alien dimension. We are from a transdimensional plane that spans and encompasses all dimensions."
"Infinite dimensions," Bob injected. "Infinite dimensions spanned simultaneously."
Bill said, "No limitations."
Bob softly sang, "Let freedom ring."
"There truly is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide from us. We're who is looking from behind the Eye in the Sky," Bill continued.
I think we need to quote O'Brien only while under the caution flag. She has clearly been a victim, but there are legitimate questions as to whether she remains one - whether she still has a minder, for instance - and so her book must be regarded as an unreliable testament. Her memories are either partially scrambled or possibly contaminated with disinformation to discredit survivor accounts. It would be easy, and perhaps even preferable, to ignore O'Brien and her book altogether. But then her anecdote of Dick Cheney's unlikely enormous penis receives apparent photographic confirmation, and she wrote of Bill Bennett's prediliction for sado-masochistism years before a Las Vegas dominatrix stepped forward with her own story. (Interestingly, the Vegas professional also claims to know brother, we-work-as-one-unit Bob.) And then there is the physical evidence, presented graphically in the GNN trailer for the movie that never was, of the devil's head carved into her vaginal wall. So since part of the story is evidently happening down there, it can't all be in her head.
And a close reading of the Bennett programming session shows a logic of method that perhaps isn't as weird as it first appears. Beatings, drugs, lights, images and grandiose speech are used to instill a sense that resistance is futile. O'Brien doesn't see people turn into lizards, but she sees its holographic representation. Bennett's words reinforce the message of the controllers' omnipotence. There is nowhere to run and nowhere to hide from the Eye in the Sky. He needn't really be an alien; he just needs his subject to think he comes from a place of "no limitations." And perhaps, in an ethical and metaphysical sense, that's true. Someone who could treat another human being in such a manner is not constricted by what he must regard as herd morality. He believes himself and his peers exempt. He could believe, for instance, that gambling is a sin, for some. Like abortion, and genocide.
More to come on the convergence, and emergence, of racism and occultism.
