There’s a fog upon LA and my friends have lost their way..”~George Harrison
So, what incentive could the military industrial complex possibly have for transforming the image of the peaceful, flower children, war protesting ‘hippies’ into raging psychokillers hopped-up on acid?
The question answers itself doesn’t it?
Were the ‘Tate-La Bianca Murders’ actually a PSYOP?
The proposition is certainly not “out of the question”; too impracticable or unlikely to merit discussion, impossible, impracticable, unfeasible, unworkable, inconceivable, unimaginable…
10050 Cielo Drive is the street address of a former mansion in Benedict Canyon, a part of Beverly Crest, north of Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California, where the Charles Manson “family” committed the Tate murders in 1969.
Some facts about the Sharon Tate murders that have not been widely publicized.
Sharon’s father was high level military intelligence. At the time Bobby Kennedy announced that he was going to run for the presidency, the CIA’s favorite director and Zionist operative, John Frankenheimer, (The Manchurian Candidate, Seconds, Seven Days in May, The Gypsy Moths, French Connection 2, Black Sunday, the Holocroft Covenant, Year of the Gun, Ronin etc.) called Bobby and asked to follow him and film him throughout his election campaign. Frankenheimer went everywhere and filmed everything Bobby did during the campaign. The night prior to the California primary, Bobby Kennedy, Frankenheimer, Sharon Tate and others stayed at the Tate residence, and had dinner and a party there. The following evening, Bobby was driven to the Ambassador hotel along with Tate and Frankenheimer who had kept tabs of Bobby’s every movement during the campaign.
It appears that the Sharon Tate murders were more than an effort to start a race war. Manson was a CIA and Mafia asset, doing hits and black bag jobs for the Boys while running his family using MK-Ultra mind control techniques to manage his “family”. On an early nineties Hard Copy TV program, Manson admitted he killed La Bianco, who was a bookie, because he was holding out money to his superior, Frankie Carbo, the mob boss who was in Federal prison in Illinois at the time and who controlled organized boxing up to Sonny Liston’s time. The interviewer sat there with glazed look while Manson went on how dumb and uninformed the average American is. He denied any connection to the Sharon Tate murder.
There is a strong probability that Sharon Tate was targeted because of her knowledge of the Bobby Kennedy murder and perhaps she was talking to other people about the RFK murder. LAPD did everything they could to stifle the Tate murder investigation but finally had to pick up members of Manson’s “family” who may or may not have been the only killers. The rabbit hole goes deeper than you know.
My understanding is the first time The Beatles stayed at the 10050 Cielo Drive was the night they met Elvis Presley.

THE SLA IS THE CIA part III
by Mae Brussell
…Will tactical support come from a CIA safe-house in the Mojave Desert?
Charles Manson and his “family” were moved from the Spahn Ranch in Topanga Canyon to the Barker Ranch in the Mojave Desert following their “arrest,” and after the Sharon Tate-La Bianca murders.
The SLA reportedly had maps of deserts, parks, wilderness areas and abandoned mines.
At the time of the incident at Mel’s Sporting Goods Store, the Harrises were buying thermal underwear, sleeping bags and other outdoor items.
Twelve and a half million acres of California desert have suddenly been closed to off-road traffic.
Will Emily and William and Patty be protected in government safe-houses, while law enforcement officers spend the entire summer searching vans, campers, communes, airports and highways? The excuse to hunt three SLA members has already caused arrests, and persons stopped at gunpoint as possible suspects.
Law enforcement officials in Ozona, Texas set up roadblocks; 24 persons were busted on pot charges, 20 others were arrested, while looking for Patty.
Many people have been stopped as SLA suspects.
Driving down U.S. 101, Linda Lipsett, her husband and a female friend were followed by police. “We thought they were going to shoot us.” They were forced to lie face down on the pavement, and seven officers held pistols and rifles to their heads.
VII. How Dangerous Was the SLA?
The reason given for the SLA’s instant deaths in Los Angeles was that they were “armed and extremely dangerous.”
The Los Angeles police had records indicating that Donald DeFreeze was dangerous. Yet they gave him considerable freedom when he was in prison. He was allowed to leave prison. They never bothered to bring him back after he “escaped.”
Dr. Foster had been murdered, and Robert Blackburn had been shot. Yet when the SLA surfaced, police didn’t yet believe its members were dangerous enough to be sought. The SLA safehouses and the abandoned apartments in Oakland and Berkeley contained evidence of ownership of weapons, ammunition, and lists of possible kidnapping victims. Still, law enforcement agencies didn’t bother to identify or search for the “army,” except for Joseph Remiro and Russell Little.
Seven of the SLA had weapons registered in their names. All the SLA members except Donald DeFreeze did their target practice at the Chabot Gun Club in Oakland.
Police haven’t bothered to locate the third person who participated in the murder of Dr. Foster, or the third person who helped to kidnap Patricia Hearst.
Willie Wolfe and Angela Atwood, cremated in Los Angeles, were not named as suspects in any crime.
Did the SLA intend to kill anybody?
Were the police violent in not alerting the neighborhood that their lives might be in danger, or that homes might burn down? One neighbor’s three dogs were burned alive.
The LAPD called in its public relations firm to witness the assault on the 54th Street house. The advertising men would later work with their client, the LAPD, to try to justify the extermination of human lives and gain public approval for police actions.
Did the police hope the SLA would accidentally wound or kill persons in the neighborhood during the shoot-out? This could have provided the SWAT teams with the excuse that they were “protecting lives.”
If the SLA and similar groups are dangerous, why do the police supply them with arms? Donald DeFreeze had previously received weapons from the LAPD that were used by him during an armed robbery and shoot-out.
Two men were shot when the SLA left the Hibernia Bank after their robbery. How serious were their wounds? Were the men hospitalized? How come we never heard about them again? Were these shootings sufficient justification to murder six persons
California law enforcement paid three men to stage a prison “escape” in San Jose at the time of the Angela Davis trial. One Of the men was killed. The purpose of this staged incident was to scare the jury deliberating Angela’s fate concerning other matters. Were the Hibernia Bank shoot-out and the shooting in front of Mel’s Sporting Goods Store staged by the same people? Would this prove to the public that the SLA L could fire weapons?
When the same cast of characters stages continuous conspiracy productions, it is important to consider the similarities.
The worst violence committed by the SLA was the murder of Dr. Foster and the kidnappingof Patricia Hearst. Two men c

CIA Cults and the Global Brainwashing Experiment: The Untold Story of the Jonestown Massacre
John Judge ratical.org
The ultimate victims of mind control at Jonestown are the American people. If we fail to look beyond the constructed images given us by the television and the press, then our consciousness is manipulated, just as well as the Jonestown victims’ was. Facing nuclear annihilation, may see the current militarism of the Reagan policies, and military training itself, as the real “mass suicide cult.” If the discrepancy between the truth of Jonestown and the official version can be so great, what other lies have we been told about major events?
History is precious. In a democracy, knowledge must be accessible for informed consent to function. Hiding or distorting history behind “national security” leaves the public as the final enemy of the government. Democratic process cannot operate on “need to know.” Otherwise we live in the 1984 envisioned by Orwell’s projections and we must heed his warning that those who control the past control the future.
The real tragedy of Jonestown is not only that it occurred, but that so few chose to ask themselves why or how, so few sought to find out the facts behind the bizarre tale used to explain away the death of more than 900 people, and that so many will continue to be blind to the grim reality of our intelligence agencies. In the long run, the truth will come out. Only our complicity in the deception continues to dishonor the dead.
Is it possible that the 700 who fled were rounded up by these troops, brought back to Jonestown and added to the body count?27
If so, the bodies would indicate the cause of death. A new word was coined by the media, “suicide-murder.” But which was it?28 Autopsies and forensic science are a developing art. The detectives of death use a variety of scientific methods and clues to determine how people die, when they expire, and the specific cause of death. Dr. Mootoo, the top Guyanese pathologist, was at Jonestown within hours after the massacre. Refusing the assistance of U.S. pathologists, he accompanied the teams that counted the dead, examined the bodies, and worked to identify the deceased. While the American press screamed about the “Kool-Aid Suicides,” Dr. Mootoo was reaching a much different opinion.29
There are certain signs that show the types of poisons that lead to the end of life. Cyanide blocks the messages from the brain to the muscles by changing body chemistry in the central nervous system. Even the “involuntary” functions like breathing and heartbeat get mixed neural signals. It is a painful death, breath coming in spurts. The other muscles spasm, limbs twist and contort. The facial muscles draw back into a deadly grin, called “cyanide rictus.”30 All these telling signs were absent in the Jonestown dead. Limbs were limp and relaxed, and the few visible faces showed no sign of distortion.31
Instead, Dr. Mootoo found fresh needle marks at the back of the left shoulder blades of 80-90% of the victims.32 Others had been shot or strangled. One survivor reported that those who resisted were forced by armed guards.33 The gun that reportedly shot Jim Jones was lying nearly 200 feet from his body, not a likely suicide weapon.34 As Chief Medical Examiner, Mootoo’s testimony to the Guyanese grand jury investigating Jonestown led to their conclusion that all but three of the people were murdered by “persons unknown.” Only two had committed suicide they said.35 Several pictures show the gun-shot wounds on the bodies as well.36 The U.S. Army spokesman, Lt. Col. Schuler, said, “No autopsies are needed. The cause of death is not an issue here.” The forensic doctors who later did autopsies at Dover, Delaware, were never made aware of Dr. Mootoo’s findings.
The mainstream media was in on the brainwashing. These people did not “drink the Kool-aid”, then drop where they stood. After Leo Ryan was shot dead, they tried to escape over several days but were hunted down in the jungle by US and British special forces before being dragged back to the site and laid out in neat rows for the press.
There are other indications that the Guyanese government participated with American authorities in a cover-up of the real story, despite their own findings. One good example was Guyanese Police Chief Lloyd Barker, who interfered with investigations, helped “recover” 2.5 million for the Guyanese government, and was often the first to officially announce the cover stories relating to suicide, body counts and survivors.
Helter Skelter (1974) is a true crime book by Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry. Bugliosi had served as the prosecutor in the 1970 trial of Charles Manson. The book presents his firsthand account of the cases of Manson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, and other members of the self-described Manson Family. It is the best-selling true crime book in history.
The book recounts and assesses the investigation, arrest, and prosecution of Charles Manson and his followers for the notorious 1969 murders of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, actress Sharon Tate, and several others.
The book takes its title from the apocalyptic race war that Manson believed would occur, which in turn took its name from “Helter Skelter” by The Beatles. Manson had been particularly fascinated by the Beatles’ White Album, from which the song came.
“Helter-skelter was the motive for the murders. Manson borrowed that term from a Beatles song on the White Album. In England, helter-skelter is a playground ride. To Manson, helter-skelter meant a war between whites and blacks that the Beatles were in favor of. When the album first came out, in December of ’68, he got a copy, and he came racing back to the ranch all excited and said, “The Beatles are telling it like it is! The s___ is coming down!” It was this war that he felt he could ignite by killing white people and blaming black militants, this war called helter-skelter.
I’m not aware of any other murder case in American history, other than the assassination of President Kennedy, where [anniversaries] are marked by television specials, news reports and articles. Before the murders, no one associated hippies with violence and murder, just drugs, peace, free love, etc. Then the Manson Family comes along, looking like hippies, but what they were all about was murder. That was their religion, their credo. That shocked a lot of people and definitely hurt the counterculture movement. I think the main reason for the continuing fascination is that the murder case is almost assuredly the most bizarre mass-murder case in the recorded annals of American crime. The Beatles were somehow involved. The killers were young kids from average American homes.”~Vincent Bugliosi (1970 – interview)
The Tate – La Bianca Murders were drug related, the killers and victims all knew each other – the PSYOP was the myth of Helter Skelter promoted by Bugliosi.
Bugliosi’s “HELTER SKELTER” theory is sensational literary license…wild phantasmagoria…a grimior of hyperbole. The Tate La Bianca Murders were most likely connected to drug dealing. Like the OJ Simpson murder trial, the drug aspect, and the connections to the Mob were ignored.

The Tate Murders – The Psyop That Stifled a Generation
by Miles W. Mathis
The alleged Tate murders took place on August 9, 1969. Those living through the events of 1969 didn’t have any hindsight on the current politics, but those of us looking back from the year 2012 do.
We don’t just see effects, we see causes. From this distance, we can see patterns they couldn’t see back then.
To start with, the hippie movement was peaking at that time. The Monterey Pop Festival had been in the summer of 1967, and Woodstock would happen just one week after the alleged Tate murders. Note that. The alleged Tate murders were on August 9 and Woodstock would open August 15. Coincidence?
Right now you will say yes, but by the end of this paper you will probably say no.
It is also worth remembering that People’s Park at the University of Berkeley, California, opened in April of 1969. Although the primary use of the park was as a makeshift public garden, it was also used for antiwar speeches and gatherings.
Due to the rising success of these speeches, Governor Ronald Reagan in May ordered the park closed and sent in the National Guard. Over 800 police and guards—given permission by chief of staff Ed Meese to use whatever force was necessary—attacked about 6,000 unarmed protesters, firing live rounds at them.
One person was killed, one permanently blinded by buckshot, and hundreds injured. Although the University and the city of Berkeley were now on the side of the protesters, Reagan declared a state of emergency and sent in 2,700 more National Guards. Many more anti-war protesters were arrested as the city was under a state of siege by its own government.
Reagan showed no remorse in defending his actions, and he even passed off the killing of the student on that Bloody Thursday as necessary.
On the anniversary of the event in May, 1970, he said, “If it takes a bloodbath, let’s get it over with. No more appeasement.” He was also talking about events the week before, since Bloody Thursday was just a precursor to the May 4, 1970, Massacre at Kent State University,where 4 unarmed students were killed and 9 wounded by the Ohio National Guard.
Nixon took office in January of 1969. Hoover was head of the FBI then, as he had been since its founding in 1935. Both Nixon and Hoover hated the hippies with a passion and wished to destroy them. This is now part of the public record, and we know it from many declassified documents.
Mainly this was due to the anti-war stance of the new generation. War was a big business and the hippies couldn’t be allowed to get in the way of it. It is known that the FBI created an entire mission around infiltrating and discrediting the anti-war movement.
See COINTELPRO,, which is not a conspiracy theory. It is declassified, is common knowledge, and you can even read about it at Wikipedia by taking that last link. It ran in the 1960’s, peaking in the late 60’s and ending in 1971 (we are assured).
The FBI was not just spying under COINTELPRO. Its stated goal, according to Hoover, was “to expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize” any anti-war group, including hippies, socialists, the civil right movement, the NAACP, AIM, the National Lawyers Guild, and even Albert Einstein (in the lead-up to COINTELPRO).
The CIA had its own version of COINTELPRO, called CHAOS. Again, this is not a conspiracy theory, it is now admitted by the CIA. It is known that CHAOS was started by Johnson in 1967 and then expanded by Nixon in 1969. It was directed by Richard Helms and run by the notorious James Jesus Angleton.
Nixon also linked COINTELPRO and CHAOS. It went into its tightest security mode in July of 1969, the month before the Tate murders. Seymour Hersh “blew the whistle” on CHAOS in a 1974 New York Times article. Since the NYT is controlled by the CIA, we must assume this was mainly damage control: the admission of lesser crimes to cover larger ones A ‘Modified Limited Hangout’ – or “revetment”]. One of the larger ones remaining hidden until now is the control of the Tate murders.
If Hersh really knew anything about CHAOS, he would have known of its premier operation, successful beyond all imagining. But Hersh’s articles never once mention the Tate murders.This is why I say his articles were misdirection.
They hinted at many things, but gave you nothing concrete. The hints all pushed you toward smaller things, which acted as further cover for the big things like the Tate operation.
But let us back up. Note the quote from Hoover above: “Misdirect, discredit or otherwise neutralize.” Why have so few ever asked if the alleged Tate murders might have been just another instance of discrediting the hippies, and thereby the anti-war protesters?
As we look back, we can see that no other event so discredited and neutralized the hippie movement as the Tate murders. Due to the awful press Charles Manson and his followers gave to the hippies, the movement was dead by early 1970.
The entire anti-war movement was dealt a crushing blow by the Tate murders, since the press used it to marginalize not only the hippies, but all protesters and “malcontents.” This was a well-bought success for the government, since they were able to spin the Vietnam war out for five more years, spending countless billions more and enriching the already rich via Pentagon contracts.
The Vietnam war didn’t end until 8 months after Nixon’s resignation in 1974. What day did Nixon resign? August 9, 1974, exactly five years to the day after the alleged Tate murders.
Famous author Joan Didion wrote, “Many people I know in Los Angeles believe the 60’s ended abruptly on August 9, 1969; ended at the exact moment when word of the murders traveled like brushfire through the community.” This would apply not only to Los Angeles, but to the entire United States.
Given that the Tate murders did end the 60’s and the hippie movement, we should ask if the Tate murders were intended to end the hippie movement. It seems very convenient for Nixon, Reagan, Hoover and the Pentagon that the perfect crime should happen at the perfect time.
It seems very convenient that the first so-called “cult killings” known in Modern culture should occur as if on cue from the CIA, just in time to stop the rising peace movement.
The Spahn Movie Ranch
A movie ranch is a ranch that is at least partially dedicated for the creation and production of motion pictures and television productions. Originally, they were all within the 30-mile (48 km) studio zone, often in the foothills of the San Fernando Valley and Simi Valley.
Movie ranches first came into use for location shooting in Southern California during the 1920s with the rising popularity of westerns. Hollywood-based studios found it difficult to recreate the topography of the Old West on sound stages and studio backlots, so they looked to the rustic valleys, canyons and foothills of Southern California for filming locations. Other large-scale productions also needed large, undeveloped settings for outdoor scenes, e.g., war films for their battle scenes.
Spahn Movie Ranch
Main article: Spahn Ranch
The Spahn Movie Ranch is a 500-acre (2.0 km2) property located on Santa Susana Pass in the Simi Hills above Chatsworth, California.
The Spahn Movie Ranch, once owned by silent film actor William S. Hart, was used to film many westerns, particularly from the 1940s to the 1960s, including Duel in the Sun, and episodes of television’s Bonanza and The Lone Ranger. A western town set was located at the ranch.
The Spahn Ranch was once home for the infamous Manson Family. A 1970 mountain wildfire destroyed the film set and the residential structures.
The Spahn Movie Ranch is now part of the Santa Susana Pass State Historic Park.
