Burning Man Now Starts at 00:01

bm line

BMOrg have announced a change to the gate opening time. It’s now  12:01am Sunday August 28. Unfortunately Burners who do manage to beat the traffic and get in before the “official” opening time of 6pm are now expected to put Civic Responsibility ahead of Immediacy, Radical Self-Expression, and Radical Self-Reliance.

Here’s what they said:

In a move designed to alleviate the crush of traffic on Gate Road at the start of the event, Burning Man and the Bureau of Land Management have agreed to begin allowing vehicles to enter Black Rock City at 12:01 am Sunday, August 28.

The official start of the event is still 6 pm Sunday. We’re asking everyone to use the extra time to focus on getting your camp set up, and to refrain from getting your freak on until the official start Sunday evening.

Keep in mind traffic on Highway 447 is heaviest in the early afternoon and evening. (Think about it: You wake up, grab a leisurely breakfast, do some last minute shopping and then hit the road — just like 49,999 other people who show up on Sunday and Monday!)

Help us help you by timing your arrival “off peak”. We promise a good time will be had by all (starting at 6 pm Sunday).

I say, let your freak flag fly! It’s Burning Man, FFS. “Official start”…who writes this stuff? What, is a horn going to sound or something…”now, Burning Man can begin! You may leave your camps, go forth and be freaky!”

Why We Burn: Miss Sabado

(As the summer rolls on, we’re going to keep it going with great stories from your favorite East Coast Burners. Miss Sabado is one of those amazing DJs you see on playa then can’t find again for the rest of the week. Bi-coastal & a multi-talented entrepreneur, model, artist, actress, and all-around exceptional human being, Miss Sabado, talked with me about how Burning Man, being a woman in today’s society, creativity, inspiration and two coasts come together. Enjoy!)


Interview by Terry Gotham

1. What’s your favorite Burning Man memory?
There are so many! But I think no burn compares to your first burn. My first burn was the year of Evolution, 2009. I had never seen anything like it. I felt like I was on another planet, experiencing things for the very first time, with wondrous, childlike curiosity. I remember the carbon garden, and sticking my whole head into the faces of the flowers; I remember laying under the Cubatron under the nighttime sky and laughing my ass off with total strangers and passing Kleen Kanteens around full of questionable cocktails. And that big slide! How dangerous but so fun! I remember climbing up those steep rickety stairs, potato sack in hand, thinking to myself that I could very well die on this thing. I only weigh 100 lbs, so I flew down that slide sooo fast I was practically airborne (laughs).  I remember the moment I first laid eyes on the rocket ship, and thinking to myself: is it really going to launch? I was so excited! It was utopia; festival earth. My favorite memory by far was dropping acid for the first time on Thursday night at the Twilight Spaghetti Theatre (right before twilight, of course), and walking out to the center of Esplanade, and I could hear every conversation from one end of the esplanade to the other, every bicycle bell ring, every footstep… everything. Art cars were floating off the ground, her purple sky majesty cloaking me with all her glory, dust in every crevice. Everything started to melt, and everything made sense. It was glorious.

BMOrg vs BLM: You Took Too Much

Sally Ho from the Associated Press reports that the Burning Man Project are disputing their $2.8 million bill from the Bureau of Land Management.

From the Washington Post:

Burning Man organizers are disputing their $2.8 million bill from the federal government…The festival takes issue with the Bureau of Land Management’s discretion over the weeklong counterculture celebration, claiming that the authority has been overstaffing and overcharging without fully explaining the tab…“If they can’t explain all of it, than we’re asking for all of it back,” said Ray Allen

…the case also pulls back the curtain on the logistical hurdles and an evolving backstage power struggle behind an event once considered an extreme camping experience that has now achieved widespread popularity with millions in revenue.

The BLM said Burning Man officials were provided with a detailed summary of costs with receipts and that “(f)ederal government agencies are obligated to recover the full cost of providing a special benefit…”

The Court case is likely to take more than a year:

The festival is taking the issue to the Interior Department’s internal appeals court, where an administrative law judge will decide on the case. This arbitration process, which could last more than a year, is commonly used for challenges related to grazing or mining uses and fees.

We get an official number for BLM cops in 2015, 84. Plus Pershing etc.

BLM contends that Burning Man demands year-round planning and an unparalleled response to protect the public lands given its scope and nature. The 2015 event required 84 law enforcement officers

BMOrg thinks that’s too many cops, and wonders what they’re all doing:

The festival argues that that many officers aren’t necessary given that more than a thousand Burning Man volunteers also patrol the event and that it has a clean record of taking care of the land. Burning Man said in its appeal that more than half the BLM bill was to pay for labor costs, but that the paperwork lacked specific information about the duties they actually performed.

Ray Allen, the lawyer, seems to be working off a different set of books than the After Burn accounts:

In recent years, a more openly adversarial partnership has surfaced between the festival and the increasing number of local authorities assigned to oversee it. Allen said Burning Man has been stomaching dramatically increasing costs since 2011, when its permit was $730,000.

2011 Afterburn: $1,552,000

It’s not all bad news, things are running pretty smoothly. BLM is going down. Let’s hope this doesn’t throw a spanner in the works:

Both the federal authority and Burning Man organizers said planning for the 2016 festival has been going smoothly. The new state director John Ruhs said BLM staffing numbers are expected to go down this year because communication between both sides are now much improved.

Read the full story  at the Washington Post.

Chocotacos were too much, cops were too much, and now BMOrg are asking the Federales to explain exactly what the money was spent on. Or, to be specific, just what all those cops were doing. Maybe now they will release the arrest information like they used to in the Transparency 1.0 era.

Recent revelations in the Reno Gazette Journal have featured both Commissioner Vaughn Hartung and  Sheriff Chuck Allen taking their families on joyrides important police RAVEN missions to extravagant 18 course meals on the Playa. Sponsored by Krug, perhaps. Most definitely sponsored by First Camp, and their wealthy patrons at the Burning Man Project.

There’s no spectators, unless you’re the cops or the media, then come on in! Look at the freaks! Have some air-lifted lobster.

Now they can cut costs and fly in on the Burner airline. 3% of the revenue from that presumably goes to the BLM too, so in the future we might get lucky enough to see how well that little sideline monopoly is doing, through the magic of FOIA.

The BLM did accede to Burning Man’s demands to increase the population size from 50,000 including everyone to 70,000 paying plus 10-15,000 volunteers or workers.This has seen revenues go from $13.5 million in 2010 to at least $37 million this year. BLM fees have increased from $1.9 million in 2012, to $2.8 million. This is about what Burning Man’s entire payroll was in 2010. To me, it doesn’t seem all that unreasonable.

This Federal take is about the same as the estimated State windfall from the 9% Live Entertainment Tax. This was imposed on all outdoor festivals. BMOrg passed it straight onto Burners. The money sits in their bank account for half a year or more earning interest, before they have to hand it over to the Government. Not to mention all kinds of weirdness with the “9% of $3 of the $7 handling fee” or whatever all that was.

Do the hundreds of BLM workers involved with Burning Man take their frustration about this complaint out on any BMOrg personnel, who are dealing through lawyers and media spokespeople? Or do they take it out on DPW and Burners, trying to make their budgets instead of getting their hours cut…with sniffer dogs and citations?

Maybe they should just let the government take their share, the same way we do when we accept the ever-increasing  ticket prices. It’s the Government’s land, in the same way that it’s Decommodification LLC’s brand. You wanna use it, you pay rent.

“Transparent” Burning Man should provide their own figures, since they are demanding the Government do the same. We want to know where the money goes too. It’s us that are funding the whole thing, on both sides. At least, it was until Flysalen…now we have very little idea where the money’s actually coming from.

Why things are so tight, when ticket prices and demand are so high, and they no longer have to pay any tax?

If only the money and energy that they put into lawyers and accountants went into waste management, reduced carbon footprint, and reforestation.

Friday the 13th – the Satanists Attack With Forrest Chump [Update]

So far my Shadow History series (Part 1, Part 2) has led to an unprecedented level of ad hominem attacks. When they can’t address the facts, they attack the messenger. This time they have come from unexpected sources, and quite possibly co-ordinated together on the Satanic Magick Day of Friday May the 13th.

In my research I quoted some claims made by Douglas Duane Dietrich, who calls himself “Renegade Historian” and “Weapon of Mass Instruction”.

I use Shadow History because it’s in the shadows of history that you can glean enough nuggets of truth to piece together the true picture of what’s going on. Just like the Shadow Economy includes offshore wealth and the Shadow Government includes unelected propagandists, Shadow History includes obscure (even, “occulted”) facts and verifiable documentation.

I am not claiming to have invented the term.

Screenshot 2016-07-09 06.39.07

In my case, I am only dealing with non-fiction. Real history, not propaganda; proven, verifiable facts; information from primary documents and multiple credible sources. Sometimes I add my own speculation and interpretation, connecting dots and questioning coincidences, but there is no fictional component to my work.

I first came across the term Shadow History in the book “Spam: A Shadow History of the Internet” by Finn Brunton, released in 2015.

spam book

Trying to “own” shadow history?

Mr Dietrich’s non-specific claims that I misappropriated his work are baseless – if indeed he is sharing history. If he’s creating unique tales from his own imagination, then perhaps his case is stronger – or would be, if I were passing off his fictional stories as my own.

I try to use as many sources as I can, and although I have referenced his work a couple of times, there is nothing unique to the historical component of his research. It is all from the books of others, he has no writings of his own.

In the case of the Presidio military base’s links to Burning Man, Mr Dietrich has never explored this. The connections between the First Earth Battalion handbook, the rollout of the Internet, and the launch of Burning Man, MAPS, and the Cacophony Society in 1986, are original insight.

In the case of the link between the Presidio, the Army’s 7th Psychological Operations Group, and Moffett Field and the Internet, credit for discovering that should properly go to Thunkerdrone on the LetsRollForum. He posted “time for some dot connecting” on Sep 6 2014, and I was in touch with him and sharing my own previously published research by Sep 8 2014. Jan Irvin and I also reached out privately to him earlier this year and invited him on the show.

Mr Dietrich’s bizarre rants against me make the Unabomber manifesto look like Shakespeare (Breakspear?)

Having never met me, all he can do is Google my name to find stuff to criticize me with. I encourage Mr Dietrich to get some legal advice, stop with the slander and hate speech, and not try to falsely claim ownership of others’ intellectual property.

It’s possible that this self-proclaimed former Marine, mercenary, rave cop, escort security guard, and Department of Defense contractor is operating independently. However he recently ganged up with Brandon Young and Amanda Eut. All three claim to have suffered from traumatic brain injuries, and near-death assassination attempts. One of them brags of a connection to Opus Dei, the secret society from the Da Vinci Code.

He has accused me publicly of all kinds of things, and more recently expanded his attacks to include my wife and a friend. I have turned the other cheek for two months but their slander continued. The outrageous personal attacks and hate speech from this group are best dealt with in Court.

However, Mr Dietrich made another claim which is even more insidious: that I “co-opted everything he has ever done and claimed it as my own”. This post is my public statement to refute these claims.

You might think he is accusing me of “plagiarism” – copying his work, claiming it’s mine, and not providing any attribution to the source of my research. This is simply untrue, I reference thousands of other sources including Mr Dietrich.

In fact, what he is accusing me of is much worse. He appears to be a disinformation agent, since so much of the information he promotes is untrue. By saying I am “stealing his work”, he tars me with his own brush. Since his work is so easily discredited, it must follow that if I have copied it, then my work should be discredited like his.

He has made this claim repeatedly, so I am forced to address it specifically. I absolutely do not support his research and nor am I making any of the claims that he is.

I am sharing a perspective of history based on facts that I’ve uncovered. Am I right? Wrong? We’ll find out along the way. Hopefully you will journey with me to the conclusion. Do your own research, make up your own mind.

This story will not be shut down by some Satanic coven of dark propagandist cyber-trolls.

Disinformation Agent?

Great-Hedge-frontHe can’t write very clearly in English, but he sure can talk. He has his own language of pronunciation and writing, which is sometimes hard to follow. He shares interesting stories. Some of the more remarkable ones checked out, like the Great Hedge of India.

Dig deeper into his body of work and a different picture emerges, one that fits the model described by Jan Irvin in Spies in Academic Clothing. A large amount of truth is used to hypnotize the audience into a sense of trust and security; and then the intended messages can be slipped in.

Mr Dietrich’s main message seems to be “I’ve worked for the government and they’re incompetent. Therefore there can’t be any vast conspiracy like Alex Jones says”.

See what he did there? “Government = incompetent, therefore Alex Jones = conspiracy”. Guilt by association and non sequitur. This basic, dumbed down programming works on less of the sheeple than it used to.  We can fact check from our phones.

Think for yourself, question authority.

Authority based on lies is false authority. We deserve a civilization based on truth.


Who Is This Guy?

Mr Dietrich’s place in the alternative media milieu is based on his claim first made on Coast to Coast (2008) that he worked for 10 years as a Department of Defense librarian at the Presidio, in charge of document destruction. Because of that, he is an expert on the Roswell crash, aliens, UFOs, World War 2…actually I’ll let him explain:

Mr. Dietrich was a Department of Defense Research Librarian for almost a decade, responsible for incinerating Highly Classified materials on critical historical topics such as Pearl Harbor, Roswell, Viêt-Nam, and the different ethnic Holocausts; as well as documents exposing the reality behind vampires, zombies, Soviet psychic warfare, and other occult phenomena. Volumes of notes on Tesla, H.P. Lovecraft, L. Ron Hubbard, the Vatican and United Nations were destroyed, along with reams of reports detailing everything from Military/Intelligence-sponsored drug-smuggling operations to experimental mind-control programs. Records plundered from both Allied and Enemy States articulated the hidden objectives of modern mass-movements such as Nat-Ƶism, Ƶionism, Iƶlamicism (Wähhä’bīst/Islamist Fundamentalism[s]), Vouhodouxnism (“Voodooism”), and other ideologies. His Post was San Francisco’s Presidio, which was seething with Satanism, child abuse, and controversial medical experimentation. An Assassination Plot on Presidential Candidate William Clinton was even attempted. Since Base-Closure, his background in Military Reference and his experiences in Mercenary/Security Enforcement exposed him to startling insights into geopolitics, the current demographic apocalypse, and the Medical-Industrial Complex thanatizing our future. Weapons of Mass-Deception unleashed generations ago by increasingly self-deluded American Élites have since warped the U.S. Electorate’s very perception of reality — NOW is the time for TOTAL Disclosure.

His 44 page detailed “Bio Bomb” and “Total Disclosure” on his web site add details like this (emphasis ours) :

How Douglas Dietrich Stopped Gulf War I on His Summer Vacation

In 1981 I transferred out of the Electronics Department of San Francisco’s John H. O’Connell Vocational Institute of Technology (colloquially referred to as: “San Quentin Prep”) and majored instead in Commercial Illustration via that particular Trade School’s Advertising Arts Department. I was able to enter the field of Graphic(s), even as a student, by producing pornographic comic-book illustrations: San Francisco being internationally celebrated at that time as one of the capitals of Adult Entertainment on the world scene; as well as the acknowledged countercultural epicenter of a thriving “underground” publishing industry catering to the ubiquitous local (and national) market(s) of sex, drugs, music, and the occult.

By 1982 I entered employment on-site El Presidio Real de San Francisco’s Western Defense Command Center as a Librarian’s Aid through the D.O.D. (Department Of Defense) via my status as a Military Dependent – even while continuing my education at John O’Connell. San Francisco hosts more Foreign Consulates than any other city in the United States other than New York City (Washington, D.C. hosting actual Embassies) because the United Nations was founded inside San Francisco’s Presidio Military Base on the 1st of January in 1942. In 1988 the Editor of The Star Presidian, the Presidio Post’s newspaper, approached me to let me know that the ‘Iraqi Consulate was seeking to expose Iranian atrocities in the ongoing, and seemingly endless, First Gulf War (Islamic Fundamentalist Iran vs. U.S.-Allied Secular Æl ‘Iraq: 1980—1988); which was entering its eighth year at the time. The Editor knew of my pornographic illustration sideline and felt that my talent would be appropriate to such an endeavor.

Like that other rail-thin spook who tried to publicly smear me, Danger Ranger, there are a lot of missing years in this resumé. In this case, his last visible paid job was as a mercenary in Africa in 1999 – although he’s still bound by confidentiality agreements (and potential war crimes charges) on discussing the details of that.

He admits to being a cop, working for the Department of Defense and an Army PSYOP specialist, disseminating propaganda, working for the CIA, being a mercenary, and getting professional training as an actor.

Assuming all of the above is true, at some point his career evolved from all this to “Renegade Historian”. And yet, he does not publish any history. He just abuses people like me on his show and repeats his stories about documents destroyed 30 years ago.


Where did he come from?

His first appearance on the online stage was Coast to Coast with George Noory in 2008. In his opening comments he links himself to disinfo agent Dannion Brinkley, a truck driver who falsely claimed to have been a CIA sniper during the Vietnam war.

The ISGP article Cult Of National Security Trolls exposes Coast to Coast. His credentials seem to have been accepted there without question.

Next, he surfaced at the Bay Area UFO conference 2009. In the “Tell Your Story” open mic session, he introduced his unique theory that the Roswell crash was actually bald Japanese prisoners in an experimental balloon. His presentation was discussed at the AboveTopSecret forum. Almost immediately, he was forced to explain his historical revisionism.

The next major appearance was Coast to Coast again, John B Wells in 2011. He says that he was contacted by an Air Force General before going on the show and warned that he cannot disclose anything that might compromise troops in the field. So this suggests as recently as 2011 he was following orders from the military.

What is his Problem With Burners.Me?

We mentioned him a couple of times in Shadow History of Burners Part 2 – PSYOP and the Presidio. He worked at the Presidio for ten years, including the time when Burning Man began (at Baker Beach, not Crissy Field as he claims), but he never connected the world’s largest public Satanic ritual with his own “specialty”. I did reference some of his research:

He said this about me :

My Singular Possession In This World Is my Good Name, The Message Said Name Conveys, and The Legacy Which Will Be Forever Carried By Such Whene’‘er It Crosses The Lips of Others Once I myself Am Gone.

It goes on, in a similar barely legible style. I’ve never met this guy. What he’s claiming is that I work for the US Department of Defense and Michael Aquino, who retired fully from the military in 2006. Neither of these claims are true. I haven’t worked for anyone since I was 22. Why would I start now? However, both of these claims are core parts of Mr Dietrich’s own raison d’etre. He worked for DoD! He worked for Aquino!

In Mr Dietrich’s view, World War 2 went from 1937-1952 (but never really ended) and the US lost. He said that “Steve Outtrim is the one trying to convince the American people that they won the war”. OK…

His claim that the GodLike Productions forum is a front for the Tavistock Institute, is true AFAIK. We’ve been highlighting this organization’s role in psychological operations. It’s bizarre to bring this up, perhaps he confused “Gnostic Media” and “Godlike Productions”.

On his Facebook page he accused me of tax evasion, and said if I were a “sincere social activist” I should have paid him money:

Screenshot 2016-05-14 18.27.43

My comment didn’t even last a minute, before he blocked my account. Rather than acknowledging that I had reached out to him like he’d requested, instead in his subsequent shows – 2 hour radio broadcasts, twice a week for the last 2 months, all of which have comments disabled on YouTube and none of which allow listener calls – he uses this email as “evidence” that I stole secret documents from him via his former producer. What documents, how I supposedly stole them via Gmail, or where I used them, are of course unspecified. I doubt he has even bothered to read Manufacturing the Deadhead or Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon in the ensuing 2 years.

Clearly, this person is not interested in the truth.  These trolls block you so you can’t see what they’re saying, then slander you outrageously. It shows their character.

Here’s what he said about reptilians of Mu:

What’s MYTH? What’s REALITY?

In his show on Tuesday May 17th, he read my Facebook comment out on air. In response to my point that he’s the first whistleblower in history to destroy all the documents instead of releasing them to the media, he posted a link in his chatroom to an ABC Barbara Walters 20/20 story about FDR’s fore-knowledge of Pearl Harbor, based on a missing document JB/355.

He also posted a link to GAP , the Rockefeller-backed Government Accountability Project which has helped more than 6000 whistleblowers since 1977. His claim is that he released his documents as a whistleblower anonymously through GAP, and that the release that first brought him to world attention was this Barbara Walters story.

We’ll examine 21 of his claims .


SF Bay Area sports journalist Robert Stinnett quit his day job and dedicated 17 years of his life to researching this story. He received 200,000 documents via FOIA requests. This was published in a book Day of Deceit (2001).

In 1987 Duane Schultz published a book on the topic The Maverick War: Chennault and the Flying Tigers. This mentions the JB/355 document.

Although he did not mention the specific document JB/355, Mark Weber gave a presentation about FDR’s complicity in World War II in 1982, which was published in The Journal of Historical Review in 1983. He wrote about it again in the same publication in Winter 91-92; in this article he referenced JB/355 from Schultz’s book.

The story was also the subject of a Soldier of Fortune magazine cover story in January 1989: Tigers of a Different Stripe: FDR’s Secret plan to Torch Japan by Don McLean (pp 66-93).

The Soldier of Fortune story was discussed in an article originally published in Liberty Bell, The Final Secret of Pearl Harbor by Professor Revilo P Oliver (July 1989). Although Oliver/Revilo seems like a palindromic pseudonym, according to Wikipedia it’s a real dude.soldier of fortune jan 1989 fdr flying tigers



In any case, Mr Dietrich doesn’t reference any of these earlier stories in providing what he says is his “proof” of when he first came to public prominence as a whistleblower.

Indeed, he claims to have actually destroyed the JB/355 document as part of his employment at the Presidio:

The document still exists

In 20/20 story they specifically mention how the document was de-classified in the 70’s. It was located in the National Archive in Washington DC.

jb 355 jhr-11-4-1l

The Timing Doesn’t Work

Mr Dietrich’s bio claims he was dishonorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 1991, and returned to his old job at the Presidio in September 91 (LinkedIn), or Late 91 (dddietrich.com).

The 20/20 story aired on November 22, 1991.

So by his account, the first thing practically he did after returning from a war and being kicked out of the military was to go back to working for the Department of Defense on a military base. He found this document in Washington and immediately got it into the hands of the 20/20 producers. Then he retired from whistle-blowing for 20 years, before returning with stories about the other documents he’d destroyed – none of which he’d wanted to share with Barbara Walters at the time he shared the JB/355 material.

In his 2008 interview with George Noory on Coast to Coast AM, at 8:19 he brings up JB/355, but neglects to mention that he discovered the document (while destroying it) and supplied it to the 20/20 program. An accompanying article referenced Stinnett’s book. He said he was “in the process of writing a book, which is still being written”




The GAP exists to defend whistleblowers who go public.

The mission of the Government Accountability Project (GAP) is to protect the public interest and promote government and corporate accountability by advancing occupational free speech, defending whistleblowers and empowering citizen activists. GAP offers legal defense and advocacy for whistleblowers. Since its founding in 1977, GAP has helped more than 5,000 whistleblowers


There is not much legal defense and advocacy they will be able to give to anonymous whistleblowers without documents. Mainstream media is unlikely to touch it. WikiLeaks, Snowden, Chelsea Manning etc. are all about documents.

The Government Accountability Project vet each application personally and if they agree to work with a whistleblower they help facilitate legal support.

Question 1 on the intake form for the Government Accountability Project is “name”. It says you will be interviewed, but does not say anything about anonymity. The whole point of the project is to protect whistleblowers who are leaking information to the public and the media. There is no mention in their history of anonymity, and their timeline of whistleblowers only mentions a one-off case relating to the World Bank in 2007.

There is no information from the Government Accountability Project that suggests they would work with someone in this manner, or that they have ever released anything related to JB/355 or any of the rest of the broad spectrum of topics that Mr Dietrich claims to have blown the whistle on in his decade of destroying documents and the 25 years since.




The FBI recently declassified more than 200 pages on Hitler

The FBI recently declassified its file on Hitler

Some claim the “Thousand Year Reich” plan of the Nazis is still running. The FBI have now declassified that Hitler lived on for years in South America. Others argue that the US had foreknowledge of Pearl Harbor and allowed it to happen, as was discussed in Claim #1. Mr Dietrich’s not making those arguments. He claims WW2 started long before Pearl Harbor or Hitler’s invasion of Poland, and Japan won the 17-year war with indestructible bio-warfare balloons. America surrendered to Japan after we wiped out their Navy, dropped two nukes on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and firebombed Tokyo.

His theory is not supported by other historians. To be clear, I believe the US was the winner in World War 2, and Japan and Germany lost.




The US has 38 active facilities and 215 former facilities in Germany. It is the headquarters of the US military in Europe (NOT SHAPE in Brussels which is NATO HQ). Over 53,000 troops are stationed in Germany (2011) including 14,510 Air Force. Approximately 200 aircraft are stationed there. Drones operate combat missions worldwide from Rammstein airbase.

Almost all of the US troops in Europe are located in Germany. [Source: army.mil]

The US has 83 current facilities in Japan, and 49 shared facilities with Japanese forces. It is the base of the Navy’s 7th Fleet.

The Seventh Fleet …is headquartered…in Yokosuka, Japan, with some units based in Japan and South Korea. …At present, it is the largest of the forward-deployed U.S. fleets, with 60 to 70 ships, 300 aircraft and 40,000 Navy and Marine Corps personnel.[1]

Another 130 USAF fighters are stationed there, and the 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force.

AS of 2013 the US had more than 50,000 troops in Japan, 5,500 civilians working for the Department of Defense, and 40,000 military dependents.



Japan is still paying for the occupation:

The Japanese government paid ¥217 billion (US$ 2.0 billion) in 2007[4] as annual host-nation support called Omoiyari Yosan (思いやり予算?, sympathy budget or compassion budget).[5]

But they have fought against paying full reparations like Germany.

 As best can be determined, Japan’s compensation payments both to war victims and their heirs have totaled a mere $1 billion. This contrasts remarkably with Germany’s record. Already by the early-1990s Germany’s payments to victims and their heirs had exceeded $70 billion... most of Japan’s victims, including millions in China, have not received a penny


The US paid $20k to each interned Japanese. 82,219 – just above $1.6 billion. This was paid in 1988.

From Wikipedia:

According to Article 14 of the Treaty of Peace with Japan (1951): “Japan should pay reparations to the Allied Powers for the damage and suffering caused by it during the war. Japan will promptly enter into negotiations with Allied Powers”. War reparations made pursuant to the San Francisco Peace Treaty with Japan (1951) include: reparations amounting to US$550 million (198 billion yen 1956) were made to the United States, and US$39 million (14.04 billion yen 1959) to Viet Nam; payment to the International Committee of the Red Cross to compensate prisoners of war (POW) of 4.5 million pounds sterling (4.54109 billion yen) was made; and Japan relinquished all overseas assets approximately US$23.681 billion (379.499 billion yen).

Payments of reparations started in 1955, lasted for 23 years and ended in 1977.

In accordance with Article 14 of the Treaty, Allied forces confiscated all assets owned by the Japanese government, firms, organization and private citizens, in all colonized or occupied countries except China,

The US took over about $10 billion of non-Chinese assets.

Japanese overseas assets in 1945 (¥15=1US$)
Country/region Value (Yen) Value (US Dollars)
Korea 70,256,000,000 4,683,700,000
Taiwan 42,542,000,000 2,846,100,000
North East China 146,532,000,000 9,768,800,000

Total ¥379,499,000,000 $25,300,000,000


Nearly a hundred thousand personnel have been in Germany and Japan for 70 years – clearly occupied territory.

The Pentagon was built from steel-reinforced concrete. It has lead contamination problems.

Because it was war time, steps were made to reduce the amount of steel, saving 43,000 tons – enough for 1 battleship.

It contains 13 elevators, 19 escalators, and more than 100,000 miles of telephone cables connected to the world’s largest private switchboard, a 5-mile network of mailing tubes, 4,200 clocks, 91 water fountains, 284 rest rooms, over an acre of heating and refrigeration plant, and another acre of sewage structures

“The service roadway within the building provides access for delivery trucks or fire protective equipment. Loading platforms along this road are convenient to kitchens, freight elevators, post office and storage rooms…One interesting section contains the special suites of Secretary of War Stimson and the General Staff. Here are fine offices, dining rooms, kitchen, sleeping quarters and the only passenger elevator in the building”

[Source: Popular Mechanics, March 1943; The Pentagon – The First 50 Years (pg 60)]

There is a very famous story about LBJ getting stuck in the passenger elevator at the Pentagon.




Abuse was reported in the following locations:

Room 2 and 3,  Building 572

Rooms 13 and 14, Building 563

The Day Care center was actually in building 387, next to the Post Library built in 1960 (building 386). [Source]



There were several libraries at the Presidio.

The Presidio Branch Library, off base and open to the pubic, created in 1898.

The Post Library (building 386), built in 1960. This is an arts center today.

New Building 1

The Post library building lacks a chimney. It is also surrounded by dense forest. Not a very suitable place for feeding child-coffin sized boxes into big incinerators. The giant windows in the front don’t make it that great for secret coven rituals, either.

The Sixth Army library was located in a warehouse near the Palace of Fine Arts (Building 1188). This was completely looted when the Presidio was closed down; only empty museum display cases were found. He may have been cleared to work here; if so, he should probably be questioned about those empty cases.

The Medical Research library at the Letterman Medical Center. Dietrich claims to have been the liaison to this for Col Aquino, but not to have worked for them. And then the center was destroyed and all the records it ever had were too.

The Classified library next to the Worldwide Military Command and Control System computer (WWMCCS). The classified library was created in a remodeling in 1985, when the Command & Control Center was put in. This is the early foundation of the Internet, that we talked about in Shadow History part 2. [Source]

He would not have been able to work in the Classified library with no security clearance, just a military dependent ID card, since it was most likely what they call a Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facility (SCIF).

His bio says his mission to Nicaragua with the Sandinistas in 1984 (he was 17) compromised his chances of getting a clearance. In 1986 he was infiltrating Project Censored at Sonoma State University, to learn about the HAARP technology in order to get a higher level security clearance. This attempt failed, so he went to Iraq as a propagandist for Saddam Hussein in 1988.

Like everything else, the military has official procedures for document destruction. Unlike the State Department, people in the military don’t get to improvise on such things. The most classified information is not allowed to leave a SCIF and must be destroyed there. They have equipment for that purpose, such as the “burn bag”.

The Presidio had a 10-ton garbage incinerator, built in 1936. This was in Building 669 or 670 on Incinerator Rd.

Why would they install large incinerators in this small library without a chimney, when there is a gigantic trash incinerator already operating on the base?


None of these positions exist within the Department of Defense, according to USAJOBS.gov

There is:

  • Librarian
  • Library Technician
  • Medical Records Technician
  • Educational Aide

He says he worked for a Library Operations Manager, who forced him to destroy documents. This position does not exist in the military, but is common in civilian libraries.


Children of military can apply for a Military Dependent ID card. Mr Dietrich’s father was discharged before he was conceived. He was born in Taiwan. His father’s family was from Rochester, NY; his father was an alcoholic and lived in the Tenderloin. [Source]

Mr Dietrich claimed that his father did not have access to military medical treatment, as the VA denied that his wounds were related to service in combat. The VA provides care to all military personnel, not just combat veterans.

You can’t just show up at a military base saying “my Dad was ex-Navy when I was born in Taiwan, let me in”.  The application form for dependents has to be sponsored by an active service member.

If he did have this card, it would give him access to the Commissary Exchange and certain MWR – Morale, Welfare and Recreational privileges (including libraries). This service member lost his privileges after an Honorable Discharge, so Mr Dietrich would definitely have lost them after his Dishonorable Discharge. How did he get on the base after 1991, without a Military Identification Card?



From his LinkedIn:

D.D. Dietrich was Assigned Liaison to Col. Aquino as he exploited O.C.L.C. (On-Line Cataloging & Library Cooperation) Program to establish an M.I. equivalent to the C.I.A.’s “Remote Viewing” (a Program for Army Sorcerers as opposed to Agency Psychics). Col. Aquino cited National Security Issues to Authorize D. Dietrich’s temporary appropriation of tomes & grimoires out of storage in universities & museums across many nations (Aquino held International Security Clearance[s] On-Account of his Service[s] w/World Affairs Council & his status On Secondment to N.A.T.O. [North Atlantic Treaty Organization]).

The OCLC system was only available within Ohio until 1978, and then was slowly expanded. There was no overseas participation until 2002. [Source]


“I began working with Aquino after 1984 when I was supposed to be the class thereof, actually I began working with him around 1982, 1983, and then really around 1984. I went from being a library assistant to a military reference technician to a full blown Department of Defense librarian with the full credit of a Master’s Degree in Science from the University of San Diego which is the only university offering the equivalent course

I was making these rapid jumps due to my incredibly enhanced memory after the nano-blood transfusions”

With such a good memory, you’d think he’d remember how to pronounce his boss’s name.

Dr A-quee-no claims he has never met him:

I first heard of Dietrich yesterday and have found a few of his Aquino rants on YouTube. Simply put, he’s a liar: I never had any contact with this crank in or outside the Army. 1987 Presidio “SRA”-scam facts: go to xeper dot org/maquino and download the .pdf. As for “mind control”, go to Amazon and see my 2013 book _MindWar_. Red Ice needs to do a bit more story-checking in the future if it doesn’t want to look ridiculous. In this case even an email check with me would have sufficed.


Dietrich says he last saw Aquino in 1992, when the Presidio was closed down.

Aquino was not stationed at the Presidio after 1988. He was in Washington DC from July 86-July 87, then transferred to St Louis in 1988, before moving to Space Intelligence in Colorado in 1990.

Aquino retired from Active Duty in 1994, and from Military Intelligence in 2006.

Later on I transferred first to Civil Affairs, then to Military Intelligence, from which I retired in 2006. I spent most of my career in PSYOP, which at the time was branch-immaterial. This kept me bouncing around between the Defense and State Departments, as well as DIA and CIA.

my public exposure of the massive On-Site Presidio child-molestation fiasco through the years spanning 1985—1987 [Source: dddietrich.com Total Disclosure]

By the time I succeeded in forcing the multiple authorities involved (the Presidio Provost Marshall’s Office, the CID’s [Criminal Investigations Division’s] team of the Sixth Army stationed at the Presidio and headed by the JAG [Judge Advocate General], as well as the FBI, and the SFPD) in investigating the ongoing assaults against the base’s underage population to act on my evidence against him…it was January 5th, 1987.


Jan 5, 1987 is the date Gary Hambright was arrested. The case actually broke on November 18, 1986, when Mike Tobin spoke to a chaplain

on Tuesday Nov. 18, Joyce Tobin was driving through the Presidio with the boy. When they came to the intersection where she would have turned to go to the day care center, he raised himself up out of his car seat, as if he were attempting to get out, and started to cry…The incident convinced her that she should contact the day care center. On Wednesday, she called the director…Despite the seriousness of the complaint, Curl said she couldn’t see Joyce until Friday, two days later. Within half an hour of the call, Joyce was called at home by one of her son’s pre-school teachers wanting to know what the problem was. The day care center staff had been told immediately about Joyce’s call. Authorities did not search the center until Friday.

Joyce Tobin never got to meet with Diana Curl. The case broke before then. On Thursday, Mike Tobin spoke with a chaplain at the Presidio, who contacted the Army’s Criminal Investigation Division. Officers from the CID made an appointment to interview and videotape the boy about his allegations. After the video taped interview on the morning of Nov. 21, the Tobins’ son was examined…at San Francisco General Hospital…

A strategy meeting on Dec. 10 set the tone for the case. The meeting was attended by all the brass from the Presidio, representatives of the FBI and the US Attorney’s Office and staff from the Child Adolescent Sexual Abuse Referral Center. The CASARC workers told the Army to expect multiple victims…Five days later, on Dec. 15, letters were mailed to 242 parents whose children were in Hambright’s classes. “The Commander of the Presidio of San Francisco, has been apprised of a single incident of alleged child sexual abuse reported to have occurred at the Presidio Child Development Center…….

“We have no reason to believe that other children have been victimized.”


Hambright was released without charges in March 1987, and re-arrested in September 1987 after the Daycare Center burned down on the solstice. Michael Aquino’s involvement in the case began in August, 1987 when a search warrant was served on his house.

When Aquino was aquitted by the SFPD on Aug 1, 1988 , Dietrich claims to have been in Iraq stopping the war with Iran.

The Army sent a letter to at least 56 parents concerning the abuse on April 22, 1989, so the scandal continued for much longer than Dietrich’s claim.

Mr Dietrich claims the families were all posted to various corners of the world so the children could not be tested for AIDS. In fact, the military specifically DID do this.

“We tested every kid that was brought in,” said Presidio spokesman Bob Mahoney. “That was done worldwide because the victims and their families were all dispersed.” [Source]

None of the 500 children tested positive for AIDS, but at least 4 did for chlamidya. Hambright died of AIDS, supporting his suggestion of multiple perpetrators – how did the kids get a different STD? One FBI report said 102 may have been victimized

Constance Cumbey spoke about Jim Channon and the First Earth Battalion and Michael Aquino’s black magick Nazi rituals in her newsletter published June 2, 1986 – less than 3 weeks before the “first” Burning Man.

Screenshot 2016-07-11 14.17.15

The first instance of suspected child molestation at the Presidio was discovered by a parent in November, 1986. So what was Mr Dietrich’s involvement in the child abuse in 1985 and 1986?

The story was reported in the LA Times on August 11, 1987 , the New York Times 16 November 1987, and the San Jose Mercury News Army of the Night July 24, 1988

The “Satanic Panic” that swept the 80’s was a major story being discussed by Oprah Winfrey and Geraldo Rivera in 1988. Satanism was very real then, and it is very real now. Michael Aquino describes pyschological operations and propaganda as part of “Lesser Black Magick”.

It was exposed by Mae Brussell on her show in November 1987.

I can find no evidence that Gary Hambright was an art teacher at the John O’Connell vocational school, that he was arrested off base due to a stash of child porn that he kept there, or that Dietrich was involved in this story in any way. Hambright was arrested based on the children’s testimony, not a stash of porn.


Aquino says he could not have participated in the abuse because he was at the Industrial College of the Armed Forces at the National Defense University in Washington DC from July 1986-July 1987

Aquino states he and Lilith lived in Washington DC from July 86-July 87

His resume lists National Security Management (1986) and Industrial College of the Armed Forces (1987) at the National Defense University in Washington, DC. He received a Regional Studies Research award from NDU in 1987.

Joyce Tobin first noticed something wrong with her 3 year old son on Nov 14, 1986. At this point Michael Aquino had been away from the Presidio for 4 months.

It is not clear why he would have to turn to Mr Dietrich for an alibi, since where he and his wife lived and the college he was studying at would have been simple to verify.

The alibi that Dietrich claims “saved” Aquino is not very tight anyway.

The letter from the Presidio Headquarters to 56 parents alerting them to potential abuse states these dates and locations:

September 1985 – May 1986, Preschool for Children 3 years of age, Room 2  Building 572

September 1985- May 1986 After School Hourly Care for School Aged Children, Ages 5 to 12 years, Rooms 13 and 14, Building 563

June 86- August 86 Hourly Childcare Program for Children, ages 3-5, Room 3 Building 572

September 1986-November 1986, Preschool Hourly Care Program (Morning) Ages 3-5 years, Room 13, Building 563

September 86-November 86 Afternoon Kindergarten Program and afternoon Hourly Care Program, Ages 3-6, Room 14 Building 563

Gary Hambright worked there Jun 85 – Nov 86  [Source]

Leaving aside the possibility of travel to San Francisco during his studies, Aquino’s SF dates overlap with 3 of the 5 periods.

Later investigations of abuse centered on June 10, 1986. Michael Aquino was in SF on leave from June 3 86-July 18 86 – the period when Burning Man began. He provided investigators with a documented alibi showing a painter was doing work at his house on June 10. [Source: Aquino, via napolis.pdf]

Mr Dietrich’s claim that “he proved Aquino was not in SF on any of the alleged dates” is disproved by Aquino himself, in his own alibi that he provided to police, FBI, and Army CID.

I was reinstated to my former Technical Reference Post for another two years after mustering out of the United States Marine Corps. Most immediately this was due to exposure to cyclo-sarin nerve gas blown downwind from Chemical Weapons Storage Bunkers explosively demolished at Kamisaya to destroy evidence of American involvement in Genocidal actions against the Kurdish population of Ba’athist Iraq (by supplying the industrial constituents incorporated into manufacturing the toxic nerve agent[s] deployed under Saddam Hussein’s orders in Iraqi-Occupied Kurdistan). Since
that day my lungs have collapsed seven times, ultimately necessitating radical surgery
that stapled them to my ribcage permanently – with a 20% chance of future “spontaneous

Another factor cutting short the normal five-year Marine Corps “hitch” for me was a major diplomatic incident involving my “Desert Shield” Tour in Saudi Arabia (we spent almost half of 1990 “In-Country” assembling the ad-hoc Marine “Task Force: Taro”). On August 7th of that year, at the Saudi port city of Æl Jubayl (south of our Portof-Deployment), I personally attempted to prevent a Mutawh’wha’in (Saudi Religious Police) Unit from machine-gunning schoolgirls who were escaping from a burning schoolhouse. They were being shot because they were daring to expose themselves in public without veils (289 young women ultimately burned alive in this incident). Only the
impending state-of-war prevented my lifetime incarceration in military prison…Returning to the United States and determined to pursue my Mercenary work domestically once recuperated, I resettled into the Presidio Postal Library System as a Military Reference Technician

It is very difficult to get a Dishonorable Discharge. You must be Court-Martialed. It is usually accompanied with serious time in military prison. By its very definition, you can’t get discharged and then sent into service. And you would not be eligible for any security clearances in the future. It is unlikely that the DoD are so in need of “Research Librarians” or “Reference Technicians” that rather than advertising for such a position, they just grab this convicted murderer.

At one point, Mr Dietrich referred to his Dishonorable Discharge as a “blue sheet”:

“I was friends with a VA bureaucrat for 30 years. In that time he had only seen one single blue sheet dishonorable discharge, and that was for a Castro defector.”

In fact, the “blue sheet” is something related to gays in the military. It has nothing to do with a dishonorable discharge, which is the worst possible level.

From his LinkedIn profile:

As every Able-Bodied Marine was needed for the impending Operation: Desert Storm, Corporal Dietrich was Stripped Down by a Stripe and Released for Duty, Pending Final Judgement.

This was the largest ever deployment of Marines. They had “shock and awe” air support and armored vehicles with wire-guided missiles. There was no need to free murderers awaiting trial to send into the fight with bazookas.

He joined the Marines on October 20, 1989. He claims to have been Corporal on August 7, 1990. This grade is E-4, “Non-Commissioned Officer”. So he would have gone through 13 weeks of recruit training, and then been promoted 3 times in 6 months. This is impossible:

In the Marine Corps, the junior enlisted ranks from private to lance corporal are based solely on time in grade, meritorious promotion or previous college credit hours. Once a Marine is promoted to lance corporal, though, his subsequent promotions to corporal and sergeant are based upon his performance as a Marine, evaluated by a composite score…Once a Marine has been a lance corporal for eight months and served for 12 months, he is eligible for promotion.

[Source: Marines Magazine, DoDLive]

Even assuming that his college education was sufficient that he immediately joined the Corps as a Lance Corporal, he still could not have been eligible for promotion to Corporal because he had not yet served for 12 months.

The event sounds suspiciously like this 2002 incident :

On March 11, 2002, a fire at a girls’ school in Mecca, Saudi Arabia killed fifteen people, all young girls. The event was especially notable due to complaints that Saudi Arabia’s “religious police” (aka the Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice) stopped schoolgirls from leaving the burning building and hindered rescue workers because the girls were not wearing correct Islamic dress, and possibly for not being escorted by a male… CPVPV officers did appear to object to Civil Defense workers going into the building—Human Rights Watch quoted a Civil Defense officer as saying,

“Whenever the girls got out through the main gate, these people forced them to return via another. Instead of extending a helping hand for the rescue work, they were using their hands to beat us.”

The CPVPV denied the charges of beating or locking the gates but the incident and the accounts of witnesses were reported in Saudi newspapers such as the Saudi Gazette and Al-Iqtisaddiyya. The result was a very rare public criticism of the group


In Mr Dietrich’s “Al Jubayl Incident”, 297 girls died, plus the 2 religious police (armed with machineguns and whips) that Mr Dietrich murdered with his bare hands in front of his off-duty squad, one of whom hit him in the back of the head with a metal bar causing traumatic brain injury.

The worst school fire in history was the Collinwood School Fire (March 4th 1908). 172 children and 2 teachers were killed. The worst school tragedy was the Beslan massacre, 385 killed and 783 injured. The Lady of Angels fire (December 1 ,1958) left 92 students and 3 nuns dead. This was front page news across the world.

The disaster was the lead headline story in American, Canadian, and European newspapers. Pope John XXIII sent his condolences from the Vatican in Rome. The severity of the fire shocked the nation and surprised educational administrators of both public and private schools. The disaster led to major improvements in standards for school design and fire safety codes. [Source]

On August 7, 1990 global tensions were heightened to the brink of war, and CNN and FOX crews were embedded with the troops for the first time. Yet nobody noticed this horrific death of innocent schoolgirls? 12 years later, when the same thing happens again, this time it makes worldwide news, but no-one recalls the earlier, 20 times worse incident?

The first troops (82nd Airborne) shipped out to Saudi on Aug 9, 1990. The first Marines arrived August 11.

Screenshot 2016-07-11 07.32.35


On 2 August, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff ordered two Navy carrier battle groups to the Persian Gulf.  Five days later, the United States Central Command (USCentCom), the unified command responsible for the Persian Gulf, ordered to Saudi Arabia a brigade of the lightly armed U.S. Army 82d Airborne Division, U.S. Air Force fighters from the 1st Tactical Fighter Wing, and two squadrons of maritime pre-positioning ships (MPS) carrying Marine Corps equipment and supplies.

…BSSG-7 began moving by air to the Gulf as part of the 7th MEB’s 148-
man Surveillance, Liaison, and Reconnaissance Party, tasked with preparing the
Port of Al Jubayl for unloading MPS ships. This team reached Saudi Arabia
on 11 August…
On 21 August, the main body reached Saudi Arabia,
increasing the size of BSSG-7 to nearly 3,000 Marines and sailors in-country

If he did indeed serve in DESERT SHIELD in the Marine Corps as a Dragon Anti-Tank Man Lance Corporal, he would have arrived on August 21 at the earliest. However these troops were logisticians from the 7th Marine Expeditionary Brigade. He says he was part of Task Force Taro, which is the 3rd Marine Infantry Regiment, part of the Third Marine Expeditionary Force. They describe on their blog shipping out to the Gulf via Hawaii, Okinawa, Diego Garcia, before arriving at Al Jubayl on August 26 1990.



Jim Fetzer asked him this in a 2012 interview. He answered “Dragon Anti-Tank Assault Man”. Most military people recite the number.

There are three relevant MOS:

MOS 0351 Infantry Assaultman

MOS 0352 Antitank Missile Man

MOS 0365 Infantry Squad Leader.

There is not “Dragon Antitank Assaultman”.

The USMC used the M72 LAW as their primary infantry anti-tank weapon in Desert Storm. The older, heavier, and less accurate Dragon system was not really used, and ultimately many of the missiles were just thrown out as junk. This story does mention the plight of Task Force Taro’s Dragon gunners carrying heavy gear through minefields, but there is no mention of these weapons actually being used in combat at any point. It is not clear why the 5’7″ Dietrich would be given the task of carrying the heaviest weapons.


There is no connection in their family trees. She was born in Berlin in 1901. Her father was police lieutenant Louis Dietrich, who married in December 1898.

The other Dietrichs were from Rochester, NY. His last ancestor in Germany was Frank Dietrick, born March 1861 in Germany, children in New York 1888-1900, died 1905 in Rochester Ward, Monroe, New York.

According to his bio, he was born in Taiwan, and is 25% ethnic Japanese. His mother was a citizen of the Japanese empire. Her father was full blooded Chinese. His grandfather was so important to the development of Formosa that he was made mayor by imperial decree of a Japanese city. He is also 14% Native American.

This is an extraordinary claim, given the size of the 3-stage Zeus missile and the proximity to the wealthiest residential areas of the city.

There are Nike batteries at the Presidio, but for the much smaller Ajax missile.

Image: U.S. Army - Redstone Arsenal Historical Information

Ajax, Hercules, Zeus. Image: U.S. Army – Redstone Arsenal Historical Information




Ajax, Hercules, Zeus

Zeus: 50 ft long, 3 feet diameter

Weighs 12 tons

Hercules: 41 ft long, 2.5 feet diameter

Weighs 5 tons

Ajax: 21 feet long, 1 foot diameter

Weighs 1 ton

The Zeus is the largest one of these Nike missiles. It is a 3-stage rocket, the sort of thing that gets launched at Vandenberg AFB or Cape Canaveral to go out into space with heavy payloads. It’s not something you put next to the Gettys and Danielle Steele in Pac Heights. The 450,000 lbs of thrust taking it to Mach 4 could cause serious problems on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Zeus was tested a dozen times, but never at San Francisco. The only California test was at Point Mugu. It was never actually deployed, Kennedy canned the system in favor of the much smaller Nike-X (aka A-7 Ajax).

I embarked on my own intended career in Library Science as a “Librarian’s Aid”

in 1983…I was originally employed directly after opting for early GED-tested “graduation” from the John H. O’Connell Institute of Vocational Technology … Strangely enough, I was initially granted opportunity for interview regarding this particular employment opportunity by networking through the Secretarial Receptionist of John O’Connell Tech’s Administrative Offices. She herself had found employment at “the J.O’C” after having been sacked from her previous job as “Lap Secretary” to the Mayor’s Office(s) at San Francisco’s City Hall when former San Francisco Supervisor Daniel James “Dean” White … forced his way past her with a loaded firearm on November 27th, 1978, to kill then-San Francisco Mayor George
Richard Moscone… [and] Harvey Milk…The killings proved a Godsend to future Senator Dianne Goldman Berman Feinstein…who succeeded to the Mayoralty on December 4th, 1978 and – apparently having no need for the services of a female secretary (at least not one noted for servicing her predecessor) – immediately dismissed the young woman…The O’Connell Receptionist was of Illyrian (ethnic Albanian) extraction but she was not of Albanian national origin, her parents having fled that enigmatic Balkan state
prior to her conception.

The secretary played a famous role in this case because she let Dan White into the secure office, where he shot Harvey Milk and Moscone.

Her name was Cyr Frances Mullins Copertini. Her father Thomas Morgan Mullins was born in Marysville, CA; she and her mother Grace Dorrance were born in SF. Feinstein kept her on. She had an “interest in Irish ancestry, history, and lore” befitting her Irish name.

November 27, 1978 is the day that San Francisco Supervisor Dan White murdered San Francisco Mayor George Moscone and San Francisco Supervisor Harvey Milk. 

Cyr Copertini was Mayor Moscone’s appointment secretary at that time. She testified on the witness stand about how, just prior to the shooting, a “nervous, pale” Dan White appeared at the mayor’s office asking to meet with Moscone. White chatted with her for a few minutes before entering the Mayor’s office. Five minutes later the fatal shots were fired that left Mayor Moscone dead.

For 14 more years, Cyr Copertini continued to be the appointments secretary for other mayors and it was not until 1992 that she was released (along with many others) by the new mayor Mayor Frank Jordan.


There is a “Lee Ann Prifti” who worked for the City of SF in 2006. I can find no link between her, Albania, the 1978 Moscone/Milk shootings, or Mr Dietrich.




“I subsequently attended (and am certified in completion of) many years of lectures in Medical Journalism at UCSF Medical School”.

UCSF Medical School does not teach Medical Journalism. The public cannot attend UCSF Medical School lectures without enrolling. Students must have completed the following training before the first day of orientation:

  • Infection Control
  • Bloodborne Pathogen
  • Introduction to HIPAA
  • Formaldehyde
  • APeX training for MS1s

At age 16, Douglas Dietrich earned Scholarship to attend the College of S.F.A.A. (San Francisco Academy of Art) for two Semesters; consequently taking & Passing the G.E.D. (High School Diploma Equivalency Exam) to do so.
D.D. Dietrich Attained and Maintained Standing on both the Dean’s List and Honor Roll while Averaging 25 Units/Semester at C.C.S.F. (City College of San Francisco), circa 1984—1986 (simultaneous to upholding responsibilities of Primary Employment as a DoD [Department of Defense] Military Reference Technician) – he was consequently Promoted to the Position of DoD Research Librarian.


The Maximum amount of units per semester at CCSF is 17. Their computer system does not allow any more. Permission is granted in exceptional circumstances, for students with at least a B grade average. This means he would have had to complete a regular semester first (17 max), and then increased from 17 to 33 for his second semester, in order for the average to be 25 units/semester. I can see them letting him add an extra course or two on if it was required to complete his degree, but a jump from 17 to 33 is effectively doubling the course load. There are simply not enough hours in the day or classes in the week.

He claims to have studied Criminology and Molecular Biology, but CCSF do not teach any classes in these subjects. Specifically, CCSF do not offer courses “Criminology & Psychology”, “Criminal Justice”, “Criminal Behavior” , or Molecular Biology & Genetics.



“the only college to offer such a degree in the United States”

I can find a “Masters of Library Science” degree available as an online course from two colleges in California alone: San Jose State and USC. I can’t find any evidence that San Diego State University offers a Masters of Library Science (or even an undergraduate course), or that they accept degree accreditation from work done as a Department of Defense Research Librarian.



The Letterman Army Institute of Research did specialize in research into artificial blood, laser surgery, and resuscitation.

The term “nano-technology” was not used in the US until a 1981 paper by Eric Drexler. However Dietrich claims to have received the nano-blood or “nano-plasma” in 1980.

Nano-blood giving photographic memory is not something I’ve encountered anywhere else. The only similar thing I could find online was this comment about what one cybernetic implant people would have if they could:

If anyone has a better link for this technology, please share. If it existed in 1980, surely there must be more discussion about it by 2016 than this one thread of gamers speculating on transhumanism, and this chap being the first human out of 50 live guinea pigs to survive the experiment.

Curiously, there is a Queer Science Fiction neo-noir short film called Nanoblood, which seems to have emerged in August 2013. Actress/Director Lindsey Haun’s father Jimmy is a former guitarist for Yes, Air Supply, and Sheryl Crow, and an award-winning commercial jingle-writer (“Yahoo!,” “Expedia”) [Source]

Here’s Mr Dietrich telling his nano-blood story in his own words.


Is this a cry for help?


I count 0 out of 21 claims as reality. YMMV. I’ve provided evidence supporting what I’m saying, I invite Mr Dietrich to do the same.

They say you can judge a man by the caliber of his enemies. Unfortunately that’s not always true. I am sympathetic to the mental health issues of our Vets, but by his own account this fellow was dishonorably discharged for murder. So he says – like most of these tales, his involvement is not verifiable by anyone but himself, and all the documents have been destroyed.

John Lear, Richard Dolan, and Michael Aquino have all denounced him as a disinfo agent. He seems to have had a bitter falling out with his manager Lorien Fenton; with Red Ice Creations host Henrik Palmgren who sounded skeptical by the interview’s end; and probably with James Fetzer.

This sort of reminds me of the rap game guerilla marketing strategy: “yo Fiddy! Go start some beef on Twitter wit Jah Rule!” Saying that I am a government agent, and then starting a fight with me on his controlled media channels, is an attempt to create “anti-establishment” cred.

Perhaps there is more to this than trolls trying to make a name for themselves. This may be a co-ordinated attack from the Combine. An attempt to associate my name and material with his disinformation. Something like this appeared to be happening in the YouTube comments before Dietrich fraudulently convinced YouTube to take our videos down. Someone was questioning me about a Mark Twain quote that Eddie Murphy tweeted when he was awarded the Mark Twain prize. I checked the guy’s page out and it was all Flat Earth conspiracy stuff. Another person made weird videos and linked it back to ours in the comments, also a Flat Earther. Flat Earth is a psyop people, I’ve been at 59,000 feet on Concorde and you can clearly see a curve to the earth. [See LIB and the Flat Earth Conspiracy]

Organized or not, these trolls have not succeeded in shutting this story down. Please download, repost, and share. There’s more, “coming soon”…

I was just sent this, the results of a FOIA request into his military records. “Entry Level Separation” – looks like he didn’t even make it through basic training.

Why We Burn: Kevin Bracken

(As the East Coast begins its preparation to head West for Burning Man, I’m deeply honored to bring you an interview with Kevin Bracken, one of the low-key legends of the Brooklyn & Toronto party scenes. While the name isn’t familiar, if you partied in Brooklyn in the later oughts, Newmindspace & their dope Bushwick loft was a storied institution not to be missed. A member of Opulent Temple, he’s moved up to massive Pillow Fights, Bubble Battles, tangling with the Empire With Ears & bringing a big metal swan to the playa! He’s friends with Ryan & Erika from our first Why We Burn as well, so I hope you enjoy the chat!)

1. What’s your favorite Burning Man memory?
My favorite memory was the first sunrise I spent with my wife Marie at the burn, a.k.a. the moment we started dating. I’m pretty sure we both knew even then it was going to turn into something magical:)

Not my favorite memory, but my most unforgettable moment: It would be hard to top Paul Addis burning the man early in 2007 while most people were distracted by a lunar eclipse. For those who don’t remember, that was the year that Burning Man allowed Tesla to put an unmarked prototype in the Green Man “Corporate Pavilion.” It was an unmitigated PR disaster that was magically swept away by the deranged actions of a sick man. And even though I do think what Addis did was dangerous and pretty messed up, a tiny part of me does think it was the final chaotic, anarchic action of a Burning Man most people will never experience.
