The Navy Yard shooter- Aaron Alexis’ story is getting stranger and stranger. Admittedly, I didn’t really think much about this incident and chalked it up to another senseless murder spree and a byproduct of our violent culture, but some recent news made me dig into it a bit more into the realm of the conspiracy theories.
The latest news is that he said he was “being controlled or influenced by electro-magnetic waves.” I read this and immediately thought of HAARP, which uses electro-magnetic waves in the form of Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) waves to attempt to talk to submarines (that’s the official story). Conspiracy theorists such as Jesse Ventura claim that the ELF waves are used in conjunction with the Ground Wave Emergency Network (GWEN) towers to brainwash people. He claimed to have demonstrated it on his show Conspiracy Theory, through the use of a transducer that projected a song into his mind. I don’t know if this is scientifically akin to shooting ELF waves at our brains or not, but that’s how it went down. The HAARP ‘weapon’ basically takes radio waves and shoots them into the ionosphere with the assistance of a few million watts, and the ionosphere can basically transform this into a signal with ELF waves that can penetrate the water and eventually communicate with submarines (that can stay submerged). The theories are wide ranging as far as what this thing can do and how. The idea of using it as a weather weapon is most common since it can hypothetically move clouds. A UN treaty from the ‘70s would prevent using weather as a weapon, but the treaty doesn’t specify if it can be used domestically against one’s own country; hence the conspiracies around our hurricanes and tornados.
So take that bit of info and add it to the carvings he had on his shotgun, which included “My ELF weapon” and you can see that either he believed he was controlled by a HAARP ELF wave, or he truly was. Here’s CBSNews:
Investigators don’t know what the etchings mean. “ELF” might be a reference to “extremely low frequency” radio waves used by the Navy to communicate with submarines.
It also may relate to a strange incident which happened six weeks ago in Newport, R.I.
Alexis complained to police that stalkers were using a microwave-type machine to send “vibrations into his body.” Newport investigators took a report and gave it to local Navy police. It apparently was never passed up the chain of command.
And what I find most interesting:
The FBI still doesn’t have a motive for the shootings, and investigators say that so far, they have found no clear connections between Alexis and any of his victims.
The guy had mental issues; that’s a fact, however he either had the capability to understand the conspiracy behind HAARP, or was under its influence (or the least popular and most boring; none of the above- he was just crazy).
Here’s the first episode of Conspiracy Theory which featured HAARP. You’ll have to fast forward towards the end to see the mind control experiment with Nick Begich:
