Jeffrey Dahmer, RIP

Jeffrey Dahmer is also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal. Born 5/21/1960, he is said to have murdered and dismembered 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991. Join me in the fun! Dahmer, if alive today, is now 60.

I’ve reviewed the deaths and will get to them later. I don’t think they really happened. But for now, I want to review the writing in Wikipedia. It is gruesome! Even if no one was ever cannibalized, the person(s) who wrote the narrative of Jeffrey’s life are living on the dark side.

Serial killers, if we are to believe news and detective TV and movies, are all about. However, they are waning – there were said to be 198 active in 1987, versus only fifty today, that according to World Atlas. However, according to the American Bar Association Journal, in 2019 there were only two active. Reasons cited for the decline include use of DNA evidence, a legitimate funtion of the PCR machine. It’s much harder to get away with stuff.

Other theories are that interventions that help troubled children might reform potential killers … that easy access to pornography is providing an outlet that satiates serial killers’ sexual impulses, and that would-be serial killers are turning instead to mass shootings. But “experts” discount that last item, saying the motivation for serial killing is quite different than that for mass killings. I discount the pornography aspect, as easy access is and always has been a fact of life. I have little use for “experts” in this area. 

I have another suggestion … CIA has backed away from fake serial killings and is now almost exclusively devoted to fake mass shootings, like the recent one in Boulder, Colorado, fake all the way.

I will briefly review Jeffrey’s life. Born an “energetic and happy child,” he was later regarded as quiet and timid in grade school. (So was I.) One teacher detected early signs of abandonment in the boy – his mother was ill. Then she had another child.

From an early age, Dahmer manifested an interest in dead animals. He initially collected large insects, such as dragonflies and butterflies, in jars. Later he collected animal carcasses, occasionally accompanied by one or more friends; he dismembered these animals either at home or in nearby woodland. According to one friend, Dahmer dismembered these animals and stored the parts in jars in the family’s toolshed, explaining that he was curious as to how animals “fitted together”.[19] His fascination with dead animals may have begun when, at the age of four, he saw his father removing animal bones from beneath the family home. According to Lionel, Dahmer was “oddly thrilled” by the sound the bones made, and became preoccupied with animal bones. He occasionally searched beneath and around the family home for additional bones, and explored the bodies of live animals to discover where their bones were located.[11] In one instance, Dahmer decapitated the carcass of a dog before nailing the body to a tree and impaling the skull[20] on a stake beside a wooden cross in the woodland behind his house.[21][22]

That is known as professional “backstory.” The writers were given the task of creating a cannibal/serial killer, and so had to concoct childhood stories that foreshadowed what was scripted to follow.

Two years later, during a chicken dinner, Dahmer asked Lionel what would happen if the chicken bones were placed in bleach.[26] Lionel, pleased by Dahmer’s curiosity, demonstrated how to safely bleach and preserve animal bones. Dahmer incorporated these preserving techniques into his bone collecting.[27]

Lionel is his father, and would remain loyal to him throughout his life. Again, this paragraph is foreshadowing, as the narrative will show Jefferey dismembering and bodies and bleaching skulls and other bones.

Dahmer 17As a freshman in high school, Dahmer was seen as an outcast. By age 14 he had begun drinking heavily and during daylight hours. He was seen, however, as polite and intelligent. He got only average grades, we are told, as if that is something to worry about. He was a tennis player and played in the high school band, but only briefly. His photo to the left looks to me like a perfectly normal young man. He is age 17 at that time.

In 1978, when Jeffrey was 18, his parents divorced. Prior to that they had moved to Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. (Aside … I once visited a family friend in that town, and asked him where the falls were so we could visit. “I don’t know why they named the town that,” he replied. Apparently, there are no falls.) Anyway, Jeffrey was left behind in the family home in Bath, Ohio, and so the fun begins.

Jeffrey is said to have picked up a hitchhiker in Bath and lured him to the house. After several hours of drinking and talking, young Mark Steven Hicks wanted to leave, so Jeffrey bludgeoned him with a 10 lb. dumbbell. Then he strangled him. He then masturbated over the corpse. (I did not write this stuff – spooks did.) Later he would bury the body in the back yard, and then dig it up and pare the flesh off, then dissolving the flesh in acid (see a link to a prior foreshadowing).

Jeffrey would cool it for a few years, attending Ohio State, but it did not last. Then, at Lionel’s urging, he joined the army. Stationed in West Germany, he served as a combat medic. Two soldiers claim that he raped them. There is no disposition to those claims in Wikipedia. Were they investigated? It does not say.

Owing to Dahmer’s alcohol abuse, his performance deteriorated and, in March 1981, he was deemed unsuitable for military service and was later discharged from the Army.[68] He received an honorable discharge, as his superiors did not believe that any problems Dahmer had in the Army would be applicable to civilian life.[69]

Who writes this stuff? That’s a hard paragraph to swallow. Heavy and abusive drinking is exactly the kind of problem that would be applicable to civilian life. (Does anyone ever get a dishonorable discharge? If anyone was worthy of one, it was Jeffrey.) No matter, he was given a plane ticket to anywhere in the country, and chose Miami Beach. He ended up sleeping on the beach, using most of his money for booze, we are told. He moved back to Ohio to move in with his father. I must say, the Army was kind and generous with this young and irresponsible drunk.

He brought his drinking problem with him to Bath, and eventually he was sent off to live with his grandmother in West Allis, Wisconsin, part of the Milwaukee metropolis. It is there that he resumed his career as a cannibal and murderer. He got a job as a phlebotomist – no doubt intentional irony by the writers. Phlebotomists are the people who draw blood samples from us. That lasted ten months, and thereafter followed two years of unemployment, and mooching off grandma.

In January 1985, Dahmer was hired as a mixer at the Milwaukee Ambrosia Chocolate Factory, where he worked from 1 p.m [my note: This should probably be 11 p.m.] to 7 a.m. six nights per week, with Saturday evenings off. Shortly after Dahmer found this employment, an incident occurred in which he was propositioned by another man while sitting reading in the West Allis Public Library. The stranger threw Dahmer a note offering to perform fellatio upon him. Although Dahmer did not respond to this proposition,[80] the incident stirred in his mind the fantasies of control and dominance he had developed as a teenager, and he began to familiarize himself with Milwaukee’s gay bars, gay bathhouses and bookstores. He is also known to have stolen a male mannequin from a store,[81] which he briefly used for sexual stimulation, until his grandmother discovered the item stowed in a closet and demanded that he discard it.[82]

I should advise the reader that Jeffrey, after arrest, was a cooperative prisoner and made full confessions. I assume we are to believe that the paragraph above is a result of his confessing nature.

Shortly after his membership of the bathhouses was revoked,[85] Dahmer read a report in a newspaper regarding the upcoming funeral of an 18-year-old male. He conceived the idea of stealing the freshly interred corpse and taking it home.[86] According to Dahmer, he attempted to dig up the coffin from the ground, but found the soil too hard and abandoned the plan.[87]

Later he was caught masturbating in front of two 12-year-old boys as he stood close to the Kinnnickinnic River. He was sentenced to probation and counseling.

What follows in the narrative are the brutal and gruesome murders of sixteen boys and young men. I am of the opinion that while Jeffrey might have masturbated on the Kinnickinnic, the writers of this narrative did so over the script as they wrote it. Jeffrey enjoys sex with corpses, including oral, and often enough drugs them before strangulation. He dismembers the bodies, disposes of most, but saves trophies. He photographs the nude bodies of his victims. The writers have the killings far apart at first, and then occurring more and more frequently. That’s what professional “profilers” say that serial killers do. I, along with Malcolm Gladwell, have little regard for profilers, who usually get things very wrong. In detective fiction they are considered astute and insightful. In real life, they are a joke. (Harry Bosch’s ex-wife, Eleanor Wish, was an FBI profiler. She was deadly accurate, of course.)

Here is a brief sample of the narrative constructed by the writers of the Dahmer tale:

In February 1991, Dahmer observed a 17-year-old named Curtis Straughter standing at a bus stop near Marquette University. According to Dahmer, he lured Straughter into his apartment with an offer of money for posing for nude photos,[128] with the added incentive of sexual intercourse. Dahmer drugged and strangled Straughter with a leather strap, then dismembered him, with Dahmer retaining the youth’s skull, hands, and genitals and photographing each stage of the dismemberment process.

Less than two months later, on April 7, Dahmer encountered a 19-year-old named Errol Lindsey[129][130] walking to get a key cut. Lindsey was heterosexual. Dahmer lured Lindsey to his apartment, where he drugged him, drilled a hole in his skull and poured hydrochloric acid into it. According to Dahmer, Lindsey awoke after this experiment (which Dahmer had conceived in the hope of inducing a permanent, unresistant, submissive state), saying: “I have a headache. What time is it?”[131][132] In response to this, Dahmer again drugged Lindsey, then strangled him. He decapitated Lindsey and retained his skull; he then flayed Lindsey’s body, placing the skin in a solution of cold water and salt for several weeks in the hope of permanently retaining it. Reluctantly, he disposed of Lindsey’s skin when he noted it had become too frayed and brittle.[133]

I am more and more convinced that these fables of monsters living among us are constructed to create distrust, spread fear of one another, and enter our dark regions with Jungian archetypes. We are not to imagine that life is rather quite a peaceful affair, with maybe 93% of our experiences happy, or at least innocent ones. Of course we all experience that other 7%, which is deaths of family members, deaths of friends, and exposure to some real creeps. There are indeed murders, rapes and robberies, but we are only likely to encounter such horrors once or twice, if that. We are rarely in danger. 

I know they are out there. I experienced one myself. But the overall objective, it appears, with fables like the Dahmer killings, is to suggest to us that these people lurk all around us, and that we are never safe. Therefore, we need police protection, and further, police need to be able to break into houses and strong-arm suspects without evidence to achieve that protection. I have watched parts ofi the detective series Bosch and DCI Banks, and this is a recurring theme. Bosch is set in LA, while DCI Banks is in Britain. Serial killers are the norm, and both Bosch and Banks have to break rules to bring bad guys to justice. I sometimes think that the purpose of the shows, to imply that police need to be given a long leash and be easily forgiven when they stray. Harry Bosch, in particular, has little regard for rules, but dammit, gets results! 

Bosch is also used as a vehicle to reinforce the mythology of the past few decades, of Ruby Ridge, Waco, Oklahoma City, the Wonderland and Tate murders, and the OJ Trial, all portrayed as real. It is reinforcement propaganda.

On to the victims. As with John Wayne Gacy, I have searched for them via Find-A-Grave (FAG), the Social Security Death Index (SSDI), and TruePeopleSearch (TPS). I was given the precise date of their deaths by Wikipedia, which helped in the search. FAG supplied a few birthdays, making the search a little more reliable. Overall, I think it safe to say that none of these boys and men were killed, but I do suspect that two of the 17 really died of some unknown cause, and were included in the list to add some credibility.

  • Steven Mark Hicks, 18, 6/22/89-6/18/78, listed in FAG, gravestone shown with him sandwiched between his parents. This is one of the two that I suspect was a real death repurposed as a Dahmer killing. Hicks is not in SSDI nor did I find him in TPS.
  • Steven Walter Tuomi, 25, 12/19/62-11/20/87 is listed in FAG, but there is no gravestone. It says he was buried in Ontonagan, MI. There is no photo of a grave marker. He is not listed in SSDI, nor did TPS locate anyone by that name.
  • James Edward Doxator, 14, 3/1/73-1/16/1988, is listed in FAG, and a grave marker is shown. He is not in SSDI. Interestingly, a James E. Doxator is shown to be living in Green Bay, age 56. Doxator would be 46 if still alive, so there is not a true age match. But the unusual name and Wisconsin location are intriguing, to say the least. Under TPS, I put this one down as a “maybe.” Remember that the spooks were in charge of all information, including dates of birth and death. Maybe a reach on my part, however. 
  • Richard Guerrero, 22, DOD 3/24/1988, is not in either FAG or SSDI. He would be age 54+- if still alive. There is a Richard Guerrero living now in Milwaukee, age 56.
  • Anthony Lee Sears, 24, 1/28/65-3/25/89 is listed in FAG with no gravestone shown. He is not in SSDI. He would be 56 if still alive, and TPS shows an Anthony Lee Sears living in Milwaukee, age 56.
  • Raymond Lamont Smith (aka Ricky Beeks), 32, DOD 5/20/90, is in FAG, no gravestone shown. He is not in SSDI and TPS returned nothing on that name.
  • Edward Warren Smith, 27, DOD 6/14/90, is not in FAG nor in SSDI. TPS returns a “maybe,” as there is an Edward Warren Smith living in Eastanollee, GA, age 58. Smith would be 57,+-, if alive. TPS says the Smith in Eastanollee used to live in Milwaukee.
  • Ernest Marquez Miller, 22, DOD 9/2/1990, returns flat “No’s” across the board. No sign of him in FAG, SSDI, or TPS.
  • David Courtney Thomas, 22, 1967-9/24/90, is in FAG with no gravestone shown, and is not in SSDI. He would be 52+- if alive, and TPS shows a David C. Thomas living in Milwaukee, age 53.
  • Curtis Durrell Straughter, 17, 4/6/73-2/18/91, is in FAG, no gravestone. He is not in SSDI. He would be 46+- if alive, and TPS shows a Curtis D. Straughter living in Milwaukee, age 47.
  • Errol Lindsay, 19,DOD 4/7/91, is not in FAG or SSDI. He would be 48+- if alive, and TPS shows an Errol S. Lindsey living in Milwaukee, age 49.
  • Tony Anthony Hughes, 31, DOD 5/24/91, is not in either FAG or SSDI. He would be 60+- if alive. TPS shows a Tony Anthony Hughes living in Milwaukee, age 61.
  • Konerak Sinthasomphone, 14, 12/1/1976-5/27/1991, is listed in FAG with no gravestone shown. He is not in SSDI, but then, I don’t think he would be as a Laotian national. FAG does not turn up anyone his age (he’d be 43), but, intriguingly, there is a Sinthasomphone living in Milwaukee, a female, age 54. The name is so unusual that I listed it under TPS with a “No match,” but didn’t want to let it go.
  • Matt Cleveland Turner, 20, DOD 6/30/91, is not in FAG nor in SSDI. TPS shows a Matt C. Turner living in Milwaukee, age 47. Turner would be 49,+-, if alive. Usually I only get one year’s difference in age due to the spillover of part of 2021 into the mix (I use 2020 to calculate age if alive), so there is a discrepancy here, but it is close enough that I listed Turner under TPA as a “Yes.”
  • Jerremiah B. Weinberger, 23, DOD 7/5/91, does not turn up in FAG, SSDI, or TPS.
  • Oliver Joseph Lacy, 24, 6/23/68-7/15/91, does not turn up in FAG, but is in SSDI with correct dates. There are no TPS results on him. From this I gather a possible real death that was reassigned to Dahmer. Keep in mind, however, that spooks have access to SSDI and can forge records there. The question then is why this one and Bradehoft who follows, and no others? Why not put them all in?
  • Joseph Arthur Bradehoft, 25, 1/24/66-7/19/91, does not turn up in FAG. As with Lacy above, he is in SSDI with correct dates, indicating a possible re-purposed death attribute to Dahmer. If alive, he would be 54. There is a Joseph A. Bradehoft living in St. Paul, age 55. That’s a strong “maybe.”

There it is. I think the most reliable results come from SSDI, where only two of 17 names show up, and TruePeopleSearch, where 11 of the 17 might in deed still be alive. Find-A-Grave seems compromised, that is, if there is no grave marker, why list someone?

Interestingly, in Find-a-Grave, I often encountered the following:

Thomas

Note the orange arrows I have inserted. These are sweet messages left within the last three weeks. It was not just Thomas, but quite a few other Dahmer victims that had no gravestone, only an image, and very recent messages. I am suspicious that these are inserted on a regular basis to reinforce the idea that Thomas was a real person, that is his real name, and he had relatives and friends who miss him, 30 years after his death.

Keep in mind that the photo, said to be Thomas, is a real person. Also keep in mind that Find-A-Grave is not a strictly reliable source. If often misses people, as does SSDI. But I find it strange that a face can make it into the database without a grave. If their purpose is to find graves, that should not happen. Indeed, in this case, his burial place is unknown, but in others where no grave is shown, a specific cemetery is listed. However, who is going to check?

Conclusions

Jeffrey Dahmer was an image. Real photos of real people were used to simulate his existence. His entire story, beginning to end, was fabricated. In the fabrication are real people used, i,e., lifetime actors? Is/was there a Lionel and Joyce Dahmer? A general search of all databases on Ancestry.com shows no Lionel Dahmer, anywhere. Joyce and Lionel divorced, so she would be under another name, and I did not search. His younger brother, David Dahmer, is said to have changed his name and is in the wind.

Wisconsin has no death penalty, making it difficult to dispose of a fictitious person. Consequently, we get the following account of Jeffrey’s death:

On the morning of November 28, 1994, Dahmer left his cell to conduct his assigned work detail. Accompanying him were two fellow inmates: Jesse Anderson and Christopher Scarver. The trio were left unsupervised in the showers of the prison gym for approximately 20 minutes. At approximately 8:10 a.m.[245] Dahmer was discovered on the floor of the bathrooms of the gym suffering from extreme head wounds;[246][247] he had been severely bludgeoned about the head and face with a 20-inch (51-centimeter) metal bar.[245] His head had also been repeatedly struck against the wall in the assault.[248] Although Dahmer was still alive and was rushed to a nearby hospital, he was pronounced dead one hour later. Anderson had also been beaten with the same instrument, and died two days later from his wounds.[241][249]

In another part of the Wikipedia essay, it is said that Dahmer, whenever out of his cell, was escorted by a guard, as he was targeted. Some might think that suspicious, that prison security could be so lax. I don’t. It also leaves open the possibility that Jeffrey was set up and guards and prison officials looked the other way. But I offer a third possibility, that Dahmer, not a real person, had to be disposed of in some fashion, and absent a death penalty, it had to be via murder. Ancestry.com shows no listing of a Christopher Scarver, anywhere.

My conclusion: Since Dahmer was a fictitious person who lived a factitious life, his death might as well be fictitious too.


PS: Almost forgot – Jeffrey comes very close, like Mark David Chapman John Hinckley Jr., to belonging to the Jack Nicholson group of brats, or clones. The eyes and ears say no, but otherwise close. He has Jack’s eyebrows, sinister eyes, nose and lips. The facial shape agrees. 

Dahmer-Nicholson

PPS: I visited geni.com in my search for Lionel Dahmer and his former wife, and indeed they turn up there. It’s a dead end after them, and only makes me wonder about the validity of genealogy sources in general. Ancestry is the one I use because we subscribe and it offers a wide range of databases. No Lionel there. But I will not pledge my loyalty to it. It could be a confidence game, the whole lot of genealogy databases.

  1. The classmate gatekeepers Backderf and Kukral must also be part of the hoax. The single circulating class photo in which Dahmer somehow managed to sneak right into the center [lol!] of a different class photo is pure comedy. It’s been circulating for at least 6 years on Reddit and is still doing the rounds, either doctored or not.

    Perhaps the class photo is in Backderf’s book “My Friend Dahmer” which emerged in 2012?

    1. These psyops are given lives of their own, with new evidence being thrown into the mix on a regular basis to keep them alive, so to speak. I’d be very curious about that 2012 book, but not enough to read it. There was a man who posed for photos, perhaps a school boy too by that name, but there was no Jeffrey Dahmer in the sense he’s been given to us. That person never existed.

      I am curious how much of JD was constructed in reverse, inserting photos into yearbooks, as opposed to real time JD. I suspect that he was not a student at that high school other than spooks manipulating yearbooks. Same thing happened at Columbine, a manufactured reality predating social media. These days they can invent people, Facebook pages, Instagram, all of that. Back then they still had to manipulate photos.

        1. The mechanics of how, exactly, they pull off these psyops, eludes me. You make a valid point. Any input is welcome. What about the 11 people whose name and age match that of the victims, most living in Milwaukee? Do they know? Do they receive checks? The same name, the same age, the same location of 11/17 victims is too much coincidence to behold.

          With Columbine (1999) I know they had monkeyed with the yearbooks, and the one I wanted, 1998, had disappeared, that is, I could buy 1999 online, and 1997, but not 1998. 1998 would have been telling, as I formed the tentative conclusion that Dylan Klebold and Eric Harris were ghosts, their images, astonishingly, supplied by young Matt Stone and Trey Parker.* But here is a critical factor – on 4/20/1999, the kids were all ushered out of the building and then went home and watched it on TV. They believed, then and now, that they were part of a massacre. That in mind, I would warrant that a large percentage of them have memories of encounters with, even being in class with, Harris and Klebold. That is how the mind works, fiction overrides reality, fake memories supplant real ones.

          However, when Michael Moore made his movie, Bowling for Columbine, there were no classes or teachers or fellow students he could pull on, so he had to invent a fictitious 6AM bowling class, and hire two actresses to say they took the class with them.

          With Dahmer, students will scratch their brains, conjure false memories, forward (but not past) yearbooks might place Dahmer in Revere, and the beat goes on.

          *To be clear, only the images of Stone and Parker were used in the yearbook. In the action footage and photos, two other actors were used.

  3. An excellent example of investigative journalism, Mark.

    I’m still leaning towards the fact that at any moment in time there’re always a few deranged individuals present in the society. It’s also a fact, that criminology as the science of catching up with the patterns shared by those deviating individuals, is still developing in the sense of understanding those patterns. The methodology and technology used by the crime investigators has been evoloving, so it’s reasonable to argue that it’s somewhat harder to remain un-noticed and be able to perform as a killer in the long run.

    I agree however that many big names among serial killers seem to be real only as Wikipedia ghosts, brought to life by a company of Hollywood / Langley scriptwriters in charge of horror-movie dept, aka The Fear Company. That plays into the Operation Chaos manual perfectly, also adding weight to Men-are-pigs project running alongside.

    Maybe faking serial killers was just built on the real notion, like described above, that there are people who are lacking the most basic human attribute – compassion, lust and love for life in general. You know, that same lacking attribute they share with our self-imposed rulers, aka The Tyrants. They are rare, but nevertheless real.

    1. In my reading about the nature of psychopaths, there were words about the basic calculations they make in their attempts to harm and undermine and manipulate others. They would, it is said, stop short of anything that would land them in jail, being too smart for that outcome. Such people exist, trust me I know. I think they are all about in politics, business, everyday life. The ones who deep down imagine themselves smarter than everyone, but for whom the world does not affirm that belief, are the “shy” psychopaths or narcissists, able to mimic real emotions.

    2. As I get caught up on Blockchain and the various ways technology will force us to “normalize” our behavior in ways that serve power and keep us in our place, I view the purpose of serial killer and mass shooter psy ops in a completely different way. They demonize being different. People who detach from the hive mind are dangerous.

      Sandy Hook “shooter” Adam Lanza was said to be autistic. Even mainstream publications noted that autistic people tend to be violent only to themselves, if at all… but that didn’t matter for propaganda purposes. The take away was he wasn’t normal, so that explains everything.

      Ted Kazinski’s manifesto was a thoughtful, intelligent critique of modern society. Thoughtfully and intelligently criticizing society makes you dangerous.

    1. I have to think that the intensity of the video and music are contrived and directed at people who perhaps are doing drugs. Not doing any myself, it all rings hollow and false. I prefer classical music, but I listen to a lot of other music. On my truck Satellite Radio system, I have channels 5,6,7,8 and 9. You get it – the fifties, sixties, seventies … etc. The fifties have quite a bit of esoterica, a lot of fun stuff (who put the bop in thee bop she bop she bop), and kind of a hangover … Beyond the Sea by Bobby Darin, forties big band. The sixties offer almost nothing … subtract the Beatles, who I switch off, you got nothing. I usually land on the seventies. The eighties were fake drums and bop bop and big hair. Still, some good stuff. The nineties … forget it.

      In my view! It is all subjective.

      I think that is the biography of anyone growing up. Only that I reject the 60s as anything more than contrived nonsense, the beatles the ultimate phonies. I see much if current music as drug-driven, but perhaps never being a druggie, I don’t see that it has always been that way.

      1. Maybe there was a genuine threat to the establishment because they had this large demographic bubble of young adults who had grown up in relative wealth and culture for the first time in history – there were too many of them, looking for answers beyond the status quo, seeking greater awareness, enlightenment – or even just “more” than their parents had, in a vague inchoate way.

        It was a dangerous “wave” that threatened to crash down on all the established institutions and stodgy old ways. So, the answer was psy ops to misdirect it all, guide it, dissolve it into chaos and division. And refine and re-use it on later generations. And preemptively degrade and de-culture later generations.

        Put in mind of this by a really great interview on Coast 2 Coast last night. Tobias someone, a cultural historian, on his book abt the 60s. Really subtle, opinionated, savvy guy. I recommend listening, wld like to get his book.

Hope this doesn’t come off as pretentious, but I remember reading an essay Nabokov wrote about Gustave Flaubert, whose novel, Madame Bovary, was chock full of characters and scenarios that illuminated how intellectually and morally bankrupt, and mind-bogglingly hypocritical, the French status quo of his time was. Nabokov commented—and I paraphrase because I don’t have the book anymore—that every aware author thinks his time, his country, his culture, his people, are more backwards and unenlightened and misguided and spiritually bankrupt than any other in all of history.

          All we are seeing now is a more sophisticated attempt to defeat people who see through the BS and seek enlightenment. Instead of imprisoning thought-crime perpetrators, arresting people who read or distribute their work, and taking other blatantly obvious authoritarian measures, the Elites’ newest methods use technology and controlled opposition in ways that are much more pervasive and effective than ever, thanks to the wonders of mind-control technology. Frankly, I think it’s a miracle any of us still have a shred of enlightenment, or sanity, at all.

          1. Fair points, but there is some such thing as “history” – unique circumstances and demographics in the 60s, brought about by industrialization, the leftover influence of craft and the pre-industrial world, the baby boom, middle class economic power, etc.

            And I would hypothesize too that each generation has it worse, now, contra Nabokov – the technocratic agenda refines its control, physical and mental devolution of the population, cultural degradation, year by year. We unfortunately cannot say “same as it ever was.” I WISH I could shrug and say “such was it ever, such will it always be.” Instead, beginning apparently(?) in the late 19th C (or perhaps, with the start of the “Enlightenment” science, if we believe the timeline) a new kind of tyrannical net has been slowly closing on mankind, the “scientific dictatorship,” that eschews the club (somewhat) and enslaves him by studying him like a lab rat, and using all the dark arts of psychology, plus chemical warfare, biological, anything available, to fit him to its mold.

            1. Adding… In the pre-Baby Boom generations, there was no thought of a choice for most of them – economic and social pressures were such that it was “into the mines” for them, and that was just the facts of life. For the 60s generation of young adults, their more affluent childhoods, cultural influences, longer schooling, overall milieu I guess – made things less automatic. They could step back and look around them a little more. They were also a large cohort numerically, so there was (one assumes) an energy and ferment around this “weighing of options.” I think it was a unique time.
              Yes, broadly, they were probably very naive and guileless, and easily played. But had they NOT been played… then what might have happened?

          2. TimR, yeah, once we were herded ever more compactly into cities and hypnotized by radios, then televisions, and now computers and cell phones, the “same as it ever was” may have gotten worse. In addition to the mind control tools, industrialization has allowed them to physically numb and poison our minds with fake food and all the other toxins we talk about here. Our disconnection from nature has been a real coup. On the other hand, in order to seduce us with all this technology, the Elites need to seed it with some real truth, real art, real substance… mix in the propaganda and bullshit, seeing how much they can get away with before the mass hypnosis spell is broken… and gradually lead us into believing trash is art. These times may not be “same as it ever was” as Nabokov believed of HIS time and all times before his. But, given how much more tech, how much more power, and how much LESS competition for our attention the Elites have (competition from nature—family tradition—local custom—organic passing-down of wisdom from elders to youth)… given all that, don’t you think it’s incredible how much our situation DOES seem “same as it ever was?” It may well be worse than ever, as you say, but I don’t know… I get the feeling it wasn’t supposed to be quite as much the same, at this point, as it is. Maybe that’s part of what motivates the desperate push for whatever this Great Reset has in store for us?

  6. I would think that a serial killer could not exist. Imagine planning and murdering someone and then cutting them and saving body parts. That, to me, would make someone completely deranged. Think about all of the soldiers that were in recent combat that have PTSD. And, if you believe the stories about devil worship and satanic ritual abuse, they have to split their personalities to deal with that. Although, I guess trauma medical people deal with gross scenes and live with it. It just seems unnatural in every day life.

    As far as the crisis actors, I wish we knew how they achieve all of these victims and perps. :\

    1. Seems like all these serial killers space out their events, it’s not like they kill 5 people in one night, then 6 people a few days later, then 7 people the following week etc. Someone that actually killed that many people or even one person, would know they eventually would be caught someday. How many unsolved murders in the USA are there in the last 5 years? Crime analysis has improved to the point someone would have to be a mastermind crime analyst themselves to get away with it. There are a few unsolved missing person cases currently in my area, but it seems they may have been a fake death and relocated. Usually in the past the decomposed bodies are found, or cameras and detective work including cell phone pings and records shows where they were and who with.

  7. I also saw this on Twitter and thought I’d post it here since I couldn’t find a recent face match article — well Jack N batch was mentioned 🙂

    Not sure if they match, but there is a thread about it….

  8. Mark,

    The “Falls” in Chippewa Falls? I believe that “The Dam” may be built directly on top of what was once “The Falls”. Well, I’ll be damned if that’s not a fall from grace!

    1. I’ll bet you are right! There is a city in Montana, Great Falls, on the mighty Missouri, but because Anaconda Copper had a smelter there and needed a lot of electric power, of the five falls (612 feet) there when Merriweather Lewis first stumbled on them, only one today is not dammed. It is called Crooked Falls.

      Nonetheless, world wide, water falls are still rated by width, height and volume, and water drop, and people who do this stuff still consider them to be actual falls even if dammed.

  9. Here’s some information on Dahmer’s genealogy:

    https://www.houseofnames.com/dahmer-family-crest

    http://www.4crests.com/dahmer-coat-of-arms.html

    https://en.geneastar.org/genealogy/jeffreylioneldahmerj/jeffrey-dahmer

    “This German surname of DAHMAN was of the locational group of surnames meaning ‘one who came from DAHME‘ (dam) the name of several places in Germany. It was also a baptismal name meaning ‘the son of DAHM’ a pet form of Adam. This name was originally from the Hebrew personal name ADAM, which was borne according to Genesis, by the first man. It is of uncertain etymolology, and often said to be from the Hebrew ADAMA (earth).”

    “The surname Dahmer was first found in Belgium, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in West Flanders, a province in Belgium, originally Bruges. Within this province the notable towns are Bruges, the capital city, Ostend, Courtrai, Furnes, Thielt, Ypres and Roulers. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into a most influential family.”

    And, of course, we cannot forget to mention his family crest, which sports the eagle, which is really a representation of the ‘phoenix’ a symbol of the “ancient” Phoenicians/Jews/Hebrews. All the same people, again.

  10. Dahmer is also a Spears, a Hughes, a Herbert, a Walter, and a Flint according to Geneastar. So he’s related to everybody famous and connected, as usual.
