The Sharp Edge at
Corey’s Digs website has researched the connection between J, Edgar Hoover and Walt Disney. What Sharp Edge discovered will forever alter your view of the man who made Mickey Mouse a childhood staple. The following is an except from the piece which has even more detailed and documented information.
The CIA Key
In an attempt to allow German scientists to help in postwar efforts, Truman agreed in September 1946 to authorize
“Project Paperclip,” a program to bring Nazi German scientists to America. The plan was originally intended to debrief them and send them back to Germany. However, when the US realized the extent of their knowledge and expertise, plans changed.
Allen Dulles offered the Nazi Intelligence unit to the CIA, which many projects later stemmed from, including MK-Ultra and Operation Midnight Climax.As a member of Project Paperclip, Nazi scientist Werner von Braun, became well known for his contributions to the Apollo moon landing. Von Braun nearly received an award – the Presidential Medal of Freedom — until one of Ford’s senior advisors objected to his Nazi past.
Disneyland opened during the same year that
von Braun worked as a technical director on three Disney TV shows about space: “Man in Space,” “Man and the Moon,” and “Mars and Beyond.” In the 1950s and early 1960s von Braun became one of Walt Disney’s experts on the “World of Tomorrow.”
Operation Mockingbird, a large-scale CIA program organized by Allen Dulles and designed to manipulate news media for propaganda purposes, also began in the early 1950s. The CIA spent millions per year hiring journalists in Corporate Media from Disney/ABC and others, to promote their point of view. The original operation reportedly included nearly 3,000 CIA operatives and 400 journalists.
According to the
Congressional report published in 1976, “The CIA currently maintains a network of several hundred individuals around the world who provide intelligence for the CIA and at times attempt to influence opinion through the use of covert propaganda. These individuals provide the CIA with direct access to a large number of newspapers and periodicals, scores of press services and news agencies, radio and television stations, commercial book publishers, and other foreign media outlets.”
In 2007 a large sum of documents known as the
“Family Jewels” were declassified and released by the National Security Archive, which revealed that the CIA had routinely wiretapped Washington-based news reporters. The individuals who were tapped were most likely considered to be a threat and would not comply with their propaganda and gate-keeping efforts.
Disney has had a cozy relationship with the CIA going back decades. In fact, the CIA likes to brag about Disney’s special effects wizard,
Robert Carey Broughton, creating “award-winning films” for both Disney and the OSS. Files obtained through FOIA
the DoD and CIA have backed and influenced the production of 100’s of movies and TV shows, many of which are owned by The Walt Disney Company.Perhaps the most sinister of all known CIA projects, isMK-ULTRA / ARTICHOKE/ MONARCH, authorized under Allen Dulles in 1953, as a direct result of Nazi scientists influence on US Intelligence through Project Paperclip.
The projects involved the use of “many methodologies to manipulate individual mental states and alter brain function, including the surreptitious administration of drugs and other chemicals, sensory deprivation , isolation, verbal and sexual abuse ”, in order to induce a state of trauma-based mind control in their victims.
Countless self-proclaimed victims of these horrific trauma-based mind control experiments attest to the use of
Disney films for their programming, especially child victims.
Films like Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland were reportedly a staple in mind control programming, as the imagery optimized the traumatized victim’s ability to dissociate and accept programming instructions.
“Because such candidates were and are selected young, before the ego has fully formed, children’s stories were favorite modelling texts, such as The Wizard of Oz and
Alice in Wonderland. Hence the connection with the entire
Disney empire’s involvement in such programming.”Originally designed as a program to be used for interrogation purposes, the MK-ULTRA program followed many of the guidelines listed in the declassified Kubark Interrogation Manual, which lists a method of interrogation known as the “Alice in Wonderland” method.
The method involves a confusion technique to detach the interviewee from reality.
Through a FOIA request in 1977 a cache of approximately 20,000 documents relating to project MKULTRA were uncovered, prompting hearings. The CIA insisted that MKULTRA experiments were abandoned. However, a 14-year CIA veteran Victor Marchetti stated in various interviews that the CIA routinely conducts disinformation campaigns and CIA mind control programs carried on. In a bizarre twist of happenstance, the director of the CIA who authorized Project Paperclip, MK Ultra, and Operation Mockingbird, Allen Dulles, is allegedly a distant cousin of Walt Disney , whose company has been associated with each of these programs.
The relationship between Walt Disney and the CIA was so close, that they actually played a key role in helping Disney with
the purchase of the land to build Disney World. Disney hired Paul Helliwell, who ran CIA operations in Southeast Asia, and “Wild Bill” Donovan, head of the spy organization that eventually became the CIA.
With their help, Disney was able to purchase the land at a very low cost and retain control of the property. To get the land cheaply and discreetly, “Wild Bill” Donovan and his law firm created a number of shell corporations.
Next, a disinformation campaign was orchestrated to keep locals from knowing that Disney was buying the property. If residents had known, they would have asked for more money. Eventually, people became suspicious and Walt Disney had no choice but to admit that he was building a park in Orlando. Property values immediately shot up. To maintain control of the large piece of property, Paul Helliwell created fake cities where the property was located, to install a compliant government in favor of Disney’s plans.
Disney’s close associations with the CIA have continued on to the present day, using big-brother spying techniques, which have been shared with the intelligence community.
“Disney World is responsible for the nation’s largest single commercial application of biometrics” and after 9/11 the government sought “ Disney’s advice in intelligence, security and biometrics .” Disney boasts the use of biometrics at their parks as well as their cruise line . A number of
Disneyland employees have gone on to fill “some of the most sensitive positions in the U.S. intelligence and security communities,” including: Disney executive Gordon Levin, Eric Haseltine, and Bran Ferren.”
