Joe, Vahid and I have more in common than decades in the tech industry: we have all recently been accused of being CIA agents by Jan Irvin. We talk about this and the wider problem in the alt-media of “everyone’s a shill” serving the divide-and-conquer agenda, which takes the focus away from real research.
Stafford Beer is one of my heroes, someone whose thinking I followed in my own companies. I look at the role he played in creating the Cybernet, which connected the entire Chilean economy and society to a Star Trek-like bridge in the Presidential Palace. The Cybernet disappeared after Allende died in a CIA-backed coup in 1973.

Well, here’s something to listen to anyway. Probably doesn’t “rhyme with Burning Man” in quite the same way as the (now silent) official Burning Man radio station BMIR, but perhaps you could say it “rhymes about Burning Man”.
Jan Irvin and I just did a “50 Years of Flower Power” interview with UK-based DJ Mark Devlin, who has been exposing the darker side of the music industry.
Slick editing Mark, thanks for the opportunity. Love your work!
From Gnostic Media:
Returning guest Jan Irvin of Gnostic Media is joined by New Zealand IT specialist-turned independent researcher Steve Outtrim, as we reflect on the legacy of 1967’s ‘Summer of Love’ – in many ways the zenith of the 1960s counter-culture scene.
As Jan and Steve’s work has shown, the entire movement appears to have been the creation of the intelligence community, specifically the CIA working under the direction of Britain’s MI6, and it stands as a 101 masterclass in how culture-changing social-engineering gets done.
We retrace many of the events and personnel that played a key role in the culture shift, including the Macy Conferences, cybernetics, Aldous Huxley, Gordon Wasson, The Esalen Institute, SRI, Berkeley, Owlsley Stanley, Stewart Brand, Ken Kesey, Allen Ginsberg, San Francisco’s Human Be-In and the Monterey Pop Festival. The influential roles of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones are discussed, along with that of the ‘acid guru’ Dr. Timothy Leary, who later confessed to having been an asset of the CIA.
We consider the templates that are so often employed by the social-engineers, including the Hegelian Dialectic and the creation of false heroes and role models, in the hope that the public can fully understand the ways in which we’re continually being played, as the first step towards not getting fooled again.
The interview is interspersed with original music and speech audio to help bring the story alive.

Google Co-Founder and Billionaire Burner Sergey Brin, rumored to be one of the Anonymous donors backing Burning Man’s year round philosophy center/nude bathing retreat Flysalen, has chosen the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland to show off his “cool kid” Burning Man credentials.
re-blogged from The Hollywood Reporter (because Switzerland is so close to Los Angeles)
Google Co-Founder: Davos World Economic Forum Is Like Burning Man “Except We’re All Wearing Clothes”
Sergey Brin, the president of Google parent company Alphabet, on Thursday lauded the technology company and Silicon Valley’s culture of pursuing new ideas and businesses, even if they don’t succeed, arguing that it allows for innovation and creativity.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in a session that was live-streamed, he said his first visit to the event in eight years reminded him a bit of Burning Man in Nevada.
“Not having been to Davos in eight years, I’m even confused in a good way, because there are all these business executives and CEOs and everybody wondering how are people going to find purpose and what about all these refugees, what about income inequality,” he said before drawing laughs by adding. “I kind of feel like I’m at Burning Man — almost, except we’re all wearing clothes.”
On a more serious note, Brin told the Davos crowd on Thursday that outside of the Forum, “oftentimes, there is a very antagonistic [relationship] between government and business,” which he said is “very unhealthy.” He called on all to focus on tackling issues “in a real collaborative way.”
He was also questioned about the culture at Alphabet/Google and Silicon Valley in general. “We are just lucky to have the environment that tolerates making lots of risky bets and tolerating the failures that inevitably result,” he said about the company.
In that context, he also shared that he thought about the idea for Google as part of his graduate student project at Stanford University and asked his advisor whether he should become an entrepreneur or finish his PhD, the advisor said: “Why not!? Go for it, and then if it doesn’t work out, you come back, you finish your PhD, which I am still planning on doing.”
Brin said “that mentality permeates Silicon Valley, and I think that’s one of the strengths that it’s not viewed so negatively to try something even if it doesn’t work out.”
Asked about Alphabet/Google’s key values, he said: “For whatever weird reason, maybe it’s because we are San Francisco hippies, Google has always had a little bit of that social responsibility view.” And he added: “It can’t be the case that companies such as ours are just purely profit motivated. … You can’t just think narrowly, this is your business, you are just going to maximize earnings, it doesn’t matter what else is going on around you.”
Asked if he had any idea where Google would go when he started it, Brin said: “I could not possibly have imagined.”
What’s his advice for young people? Brin said “you should have fun” instead of thinking about an IPO from the start or trying to be number one in their field on a global basis, explaining: “I certainly had no dreams of economic success.” He concluded: “I would encourage young folks to take chances and pursue their dreams and try to silence out the voices that say well, actually there are a thousand startups trying to solve self-riding bicycles or whatever they happen to be doing.”

We know most Burners would rather talk about refugees and income equality than LSD and Molly. Right? We’re not just partying, we’re actually making the world a better place…by partying.
I guarantee you there are after parties at Davos where you can find naked people. Perhaps Brin isn’t “in”?
When Sergey described the “very antagonistic relationship between Government and Business”, was that based on his company having 427 meetings at the Obama White House, a “hand in glove” arrangement with the State Department, and its Billionaire Burner CEO being chairman of the Pentagon’s technology board and the top outside advisor for Hillary Clinton’s Presidential run? If that is antagonistic, I’d hate to see what “in the pocket” looks like. The close collaboration between corporations and government Sergey dreams of is also known as “fascism”.
Burning Man for Billionaire Bilderbergers
What other rave lets you see billionaire dicks swinging in the wind? If you want to see your Davos colleagues rock out with their shirt-cock out, invite them to Burning Man. Maybe they can connect with venture capitalists and hot new startups – even BMorg themselves have an incubator now, Black Rock Labs. Sergey will be there, sans vêtements, he’s the 13th richest guy in the world. Allegedly. If they’re lucky (or even unlucky, as long as they’re rich) then knowing the right insiders might swing them a VIP invite to the offsite. There’s a geyser (Ser-gey-ser?), where you can get naked in the hot springs. It’s called Radical Self Expression, and it’s life-changing. Transformative. You may be the CEO of a Fortune 100 company, but if you’ve never done Special K with supermodels at sunrise at Robot Heart then you’re living a false reality, a lie that you need to cast off so you can make the world a better place. Tune In to Larry Harvey and the Ten Principles, Turn On to liquid acid, and Drop Out of all those clothes that stop you from expressing who you really want to be. Come to the Burn, Man, and leave Transformed.
How long until Google hosts an executive retreat at Flysalen? It’s probably already happened. Wonder if any goats were sacrificed.
Sergey’s speech this week is not the first time Burning Man has been linked to Davos, which has been called Burning Man for Billionaire Bilderbergers.
In 2014 BMorg told us about all the Burners at the World Economic Forum in Davos is Burning. Strangely, they didn’t think it was relevant to mention that Burning Man’s first Chief Technology Guru went from Black Rock City, Nevada to Davos, Switzerland, to set up all the tech for the World Economic Forum. A promotion for a job well done, perhaps?
Brian Behlendorf, lead developer of Apache and creator of the SFRaves Mailing List, went from being Burning Man’s Chief Technology Guru to the same role for the World Economic Forum. Now he’s Chairman of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (founded by CIA consultant John Perry Barlow) and on the board of crypto-messenger Wickr, along with Gilman Louie (founding CEO of CIA venture capital incubator In-Q-Tel, and former employer of Burning Man founders Carrie Galbraith and Kevin Evans), Jim Breyer (BBN Technologies, early Facebook investor), and former CIA man Joseph Detrani (President of the Intelligence and National Security Alliance). The CIA.gov web site runs on Brian’s Apache software.
Sergey Brin himself is no stranger to the CIA either. His claim above…
he thought about the idea for Google as part of his graduate student project at Stanford University and asked his advisor whether he should become an entrepreneur or finish his PhD, the advisor said: “Why not!? Go for it, and then if it doesn’t work out, you come back, you finish your PhD, which I am still planning on doing.”
Brin said “that mentality permeates Silicon Valley, and I think that’s one of the strengths that it’s not viewed so negatively to try something even if it doesn’t work out.”
…sounds sweet, and suits the mythology of Silicon Valley. A student was encouraged by his professor to drop out of college to become an entrepreneur, he took a risk and achieved great success through hard work, talent and luck. The American Dream! But he’s leaving out a pretty significant component, as Nafeez Ahmed from Insurge Intelligence revealed in his stunning 2015 report How The CIA Made Google: Inside The Secret Network Behind Mass Surveillance, Endless War, and SkyNet
The inside story of Google’s rise, revealed here for the first time, opens a can of worms that goes far beyond Google, unexpectedly shining a light on the existence of a parasitical network driving the evolution of the US national security apparatus, and profiting obscenely from its operation
Nafeez quoted Dr Bhavani Thuraisingham, who stated in 2013 “the Google founder Mr. Sergey Brin was partly funded by this program while he was a PhD student at Stanford”. After Nafeez’s article was published, Dr Thuraisingham dialed that back a little – heat from the bosses, perhaps? This is from his revised update:
Prof. Jeffrey Ullman (at Stanford) and my colleague at MITRE Dr. Chris Clifton together with some others developed the Query Flocks System, as part of MDDS, which produced solutions for mining large amounts of data stored in databases. Also, Mr. Sergey Brin, the cofounder of Google, was part of Prof. Ullman’s research group at that time. I remember visiting Stanford with Dr. Rick Steinheiser from the Intelligence Community periodically and Mr. Brin would rush in on roller blades, give his presentation and rush out. During our last visit to Stanford in September 1998, Mr. Brin demonstrated to us his search engine which I believe became Google soon after.
Despite Dr Thuraisingham’s milquetoast clarification, the story of Google’s intelligence community origins has been independently corroborated by a second source, 20+ year CIA veteran Robert David Steele. Julian Assange wrote an entire book about it, excerpted here: Google Is Not What It Seems.
Just like CIA contractor Timothy Leary was presented before crowds at the 1967 Human Be-In as a leading voice of the counter-culture, so CIA contractor Sergey Brin is presented at Burning Man for Billionaires as the leading voice of the tech world (and hippies). Flower power reigns supreme! If you think endless war and mass surveillance by A.I.’s is cool, then Google is a pretty cool company. Neat-o! Come to Flysalen and learn how to be just like Sergey. Naked.
Last year 62 people had as much wealth as the poorest 50% of the world. Thanks to monetarism, that’s now only 8. Of these, 3 are connected to Burning Man: Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and Oracle founder Larry Ellison (his kids go). Of course, all of those have CIA ties as well. Zuckerberg went to an elite program for gifted children at the Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth in Baltimore, Maryland – as did Sergey Brin and spirit cooking enthusiast Lady Gaga. Zuckerberg then “accidentally met on the street” Sean Parker, who was recruited by the CIA at 16. Parker introduced Zuckerberg to Don Graham, whose family owned the Washington Post – exposed by Carl Bernstein in 1977 as one of the key CIA propaganda assets in Operation MOCKINGBIRD. Graham took a board seat at Facebook, and later sold the Washington Post to Jeff Bezos for $250 million at almost exactly the same time that the CIA gave Amazon an unspecified $600 million deal (just before Amazon released their Echo always-on listening device). Amazon CEO Bezos is also on the Pentagon technology board with Google CEO Eric Schmidt. Larry Ellison was working for Ampex and the CIA on a database project they named Oracle, after the popular counter-culture magazine that organized the Human Be-In. He left to start his own company funded by a juicy contract with Oracle’s first customer: the CIA.
Silicon Valley’s mantra of “it’s OK to fail” is definitely enhanced when you are working for the military/intelligence community with 55% of the country’s discretionary budget.
He will be responsible for the largest event on public land in the US as the new Winnemucca District manager for the Bureau of Land Management, the agency within the Department of the Interior that manages the annual Burning Man event. He replaces Gene Seidlitz, who was abruptly shunted out of his position during the Chocotacogate debacle.
From the Reno-Gazette Journal (emphasis ours):
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has hired a former U.S. Department of Defense official as the new Winnemucca District manager.
The position will certainly provide a change of scenery for Justin Drew, who will begin his new role in February. Drew formerly dealt with illicit drug and weapon trafficking networks in the Caribbean, Central America and South America as the managing director of the U.S. Navy’s Counter Transnational Organized Crime Division for the Southern Command.
As the director of the Winnemucca office, he will manage 8.4 million acres of BLM-administered high desert throughout Northern Nevada, including the Black Rock-High Rock National Conservation Area, two field offices and eighty-three full-time employees.
He also will be responsible for issuing Burning Man’s $3 million to $4 million special recreation permit, the largest in the country…
One of the BLM’s greatest tasks in overseeing Burning Man is providing law enforcement resources to ensure that security protocol are followed during the weeks before, during and after the event. Burning Man executives have taken issue with some law enforcement procedures, such as the use of K9 units, the increase in traffic violations and overall , in recent years, cited in the arts nonprofit’s $2.8 million lawsuit against the BLM filed in July. The BLM also is responsible for environmental, health and safety standards at the annual, weeklong event.
Drew’s predecessor, Gene Seidlitz, was reassigned to the BLM state office in 2015 after the BLM came under fire for its unprecedented request that year for a VIP compound at Burning Man, information revealed in a Reno Gazette-Journal investigation in June 2015. Since Seidlitz’s reassignment, the BLM has enlisted several acting officials to oversee the Winnemucca office, including Kenneth Collum, William Mack and Robert Towne.
Drew has little to no experience in land management or geology, but has held various management positions in the U.S. Navy throughout his career. He served as the executive officer for the U.S. Navy’s Southern Command Joint Intelligence Operation Center as well as an Intel officer and an enlisted aviation electronics technician.
Drew received a bachelor’s degree in aeronautics from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, graduating Summa Cum Laude. In April, he also received a master’s degree in criminal justice from Boston University. In addition, Drew volunteers with Big Brothers Big Sisters, Habitat for Humanity and the Humane Society. He also trains dogs for general obedience and to work as service animals for veterans.
Read the full story at the Reno Gazette-Journal.
The position required a Q Security Clearance from the Department of Energy, the highest level – equivalent to TOP SECRET/Sensitive Compartmentalized Information in the military. That would have been no problem for this career Naval Intelligence officer who managed hundreds of personnel in inter-agency teams with the CIA, DIA, DEA, NSA, FBI, BATF, Treasury and others.
Does he seem a little overqualified to manage a desert rave?
Has he been to Burning Man? Did he partake of the sacrament? Do you think he knows there are people on drugs there? Hopefully his interest in animal welfare will encourage him to stop the torture of Police K9s in these abominably dusty and dry conditions, just to entrap a few $1000+ citations to fill the Pershing County coffers while ruining the lives of innocent psychedelic enthusiast Burners.
Interestingly, his rank is not revealed.
“I will be reporting to my next “duty station” in February 2017″…sounds more like he was assigned this post, rather than spontaneously deciding on a career change. It is curious that his resumé says he’s been in the role since February 2016.
