Dick Cheney, 9/11, CIA Mind Control

Ghosts in the Wind (Part Four): Dick Cheney, 9/11, CIA
Mind Control & the "Suicide" of Art Blogger Theresa

By Alex Constantine

Jeremy Blake and Theresa Duncan believed that
Scientologists were stalking them. In fact, they had
no way of knowing who was interfering in their lives.
The newspapers reported this much of the story. They
neglected to mention that she also suspected " ... a
prominent Republican donor connected to the Heritage
Foundation. ... "

The CIA's mind control perps often lead the subject to
believe that someone else is responsible for the
harassment, stalking and invasive interference in
their lives and minds. It wasn't necessarily
Scientology. The Theresa Duncan case remains open, and
there are obvious leads in the death of the famed art

political essay, under the title 'The Devil And Dick
Cheney'. On July 5, she wrote : So it must be clear by
now, children of the Staircase, that MK-ULTRA (and
even weird, disinfo-saturated Project Monarch) are the
ne plus ultra weapons of past decades... "
The apparent double suicide of Jeremy Blake and
Theresa Duncan
Friends cite strange behavior in the final days of a
golden couple in the art world.,0,5067221.story?coll=cl-art-features

It's been just eight days since rising art star Jeremy
Blake was seen wandering into the ocean off New York's
Rockaway Beach -- presumably to his death -- a week
after he discovered that his blogger-filmmaker
girlfriend, Theresa Duncan, had taken her life in
their East Village apartment.

But the apparent double suicide of this glamorous,
intellectual couple has confounded and disturbed the
art world in New York, London and Los Angeles, where
they lived together for several years. Many were
shocked by the turn of events while others noted that
the couple had acted strangely in their final months

According to several friends and art world peers, the
two believed they were being stalked and harassed by
Scientologists, an abiding fear that soured old
friendships and made some of their respective working
relationships difficult.

Christine Nichols, a colleague and friend of Blake's
since 1998, produced two art exhibitions, two books
and a record in conjunction with the artist through
the New York art gallery she co-founded, Works on
Paper Inc. Nichols dates the couple's rising sense of
"paranoia" to around 2004, two years after Blake
created an album cover for alternative-rock star Beck,
who is a practicing Scientologist.

"They thought Scientologists were really harassing
them," Nichols said. "They would say, 'They are
following us, harassing our landlord.' I did not see
any evidence of that.

"But it got to be something that was huge to them -- a
'You're either with us or against us' thing where if
you didn't believe them, you weren't on their side.
The story they had woven in paranoia and conspiracies
took over part of their lives. A lot of us couldn't
understand that acting out."

Two other art world sources corroborated Nichols'
characterization but declined to speak on the record
out of concern that Blake may still be alive.

Beck was unavailable for comment, but his manager,
through a publicist, let it be known that things were
"extremely cordial" between the singer and the artist
the last time they talked three years ago.A spokesman
said the New York Police Department was not
investigating any involvement by the Church of
Scientology. Karin Pouw, a spokeswoman for the Church
of Scientology, denied the allegations, saying, "Never
heard of these people. This is completely untrue. ...

'Suicide' Of Controversial Arts Blogger Theresa Duncan
"Vital Part Of The Story Missing"

Blogger Theresa Duncan interviews Frank Morales six
weeks before her death:

"On July 8 she wrote she was working on a new
political essay, under the title 'The Devil And Dick

On July 5, she wrote :

So it must be clear by now, children of the Staircase,
that MK-ULTRA (and even weird, disinfo-saturated
Project Monarch) are the ne plus ultra weapons of past
decades, as if all the Cold War missile paranoia was
just a smoke screen for all the body snatchers the
Pentagon was beginning to hatch.

UPDATE : Ron Rosenbaum claims that, contrary to the
New York Times story excerpted below, his checking the
facts of Theresa Duncan's death with the New York City
Police Department and the City Medical Examiner’s
Office reveals that her death has "not yet been
officially ruled a suicide" :

To my knowledge no evidence has come to light
suggesting murder or accidental death. But the
authorities aren’t commenting, awaiting, for one
thing, toxicology reports on Duncan they say may not
be available for at least two weeks.

A verdict “on the cause and manner of her death” is
still “pending investigation” is all a spokesman for
the Medical Examiner said she was authorized to say.

Meanwhile the body of Theresa Duncan’s boyfriend,
Jeremy Blake—who reportedly committed suicide in the
waters off Rockaway Beach because he was “despondent”
over Theresa’s death—has still not been found.

But in the meantime, 'Anonymous' commenters are
filling up blog sites with claims that both Theresa
and partner Jeremy Blake were mentally ill and "deeply
troubled", which we examine in more detail below.
Interesting then that the many 'Anonymous' comments
we've read so far, from a close look at the writing
styles and syntax, seem to have been written by the
same one or two people.

>From the New York Times :

In a case that is reverberating in the art world, the
New York Police Department said yesterday that a
video-game designer and budding filmmaker committed
suicide last week and that her companion, a rising art
star, has been missing since Tuesday.

The filmmaker, Theresa Duncan, 40, who has also drawn
attention for her writings on cultural topics,
committed suicide in their East Village apartment on
July 10, the police said. Her companion, Jeremy Blake,
35, a well-regarded artist known for digital animation
that blurs the line between abstract painting and
film, has been missing since his clothes were found on
a beach in the Rockaways on Tuesday evening, they

Found with the clothes was a note that made reference
to Ms. Duncan, the police said.

Theresa Duncan also ran an arts and literary blog we
visited occasionally called 'Wit Of The Staircase'.

In a post on her blog the day she died, July 10,
Theresa quoted novelist Reynolds Price :

"Millions survive without love or home, almost none in
silence; the opposite of silence leads quickly to
narrative, and the sound of story is the dominant
sound of our lives, from the small accounts of our
day's events to the vast incommunicable constructs of

The night before she killed herself, she headed a
short post 'Goodnight, Children, We're In The Arms Of
The Great Lover'. The Great Lover being sleep.

On July 8 she wrote she was working on a new political
essay, under the title 'The Devil And Dick Cheney'.

On July 5, she wrote :

So it must be clear by now, children of the Staircase,
that MK-ULTRA (and even weird, disinfo-saturated
Project Monarch) are the ne plus ultra weapons of past
decades, as if all the Cold War missile paranoia was
just a smoke screen for all the body snatchers the
Pentagon was beginning to hatch.

Mind control and psychological warfare are the primary
weapons that led to our current Monarch Moment. Cults
like Scientology and mind control-manufactured Monarch
girlies and Operation Mockingbird are the fungus among
us that has been eating away at the foundations of
democracy for decades....

And then linked to this video, a strange and troubling
documentary on the history of American intelligence
and military run mind control experimentation:

The NYT story claimed her partner Jeremy Blake found
her body :

Mr. Kinz said that Mr. Blake told him he had
discovered Ms. Duncan’s body after she committed
suicide. He said he had spoken with Mr. Blake after
her death and that, while devastated and grieving, “he
seemed to be very much in control and to be coping
with it.”

News of her death spread fast amongst her friends, and
in the New York art circles. Her blog averaged 800-900
visits a day while she alive. There was an increase of
a few hundred extra visitors a day in the week after
she died, perhaps friends and family members who had
never visited her blog much before, but went there in
search of learning something about why she did what
she did.

On the day this story about her death appeared in the
New York Times, the visits to her site shot up to more
than 10,000 :

There are a growing number of blogs, FaceBook and
MySpace pages belonging to people who've died. Often
families and friends don't take down the pages,
leaving them online as a personal memorial, with
farewell messages from loved ones filling the
comments. I've been told there are at least 200 or so
MySpace pages from Americans, Brits and Iraqis who've
died in the Iraq War still online. Permanent portraits
of the lives and minds of the dead. As permanent as
the internet remains anyway.

Sometimes you find the personal blogs and web sites of
the dead are just as the creator left them the day
they died. There is nothing on Theresa's site, at the
moment, to say she died, or how she died. There is
just the blog she created and filled with images and
quotes from books and poetry that meant something to
her, that she wanted to share with the world.

Many artists dream of some kind of immortality. Her
blog renders her immortal in at least one sense : you
can learn something of her life, her interests, her
passions and her sadness from moving through the few
months of archives.

It would be a shame indeed if her site, 'The Wit Of
The Staircase' was taken down now she's gone. It is
filled with sometimes beautiful, sometimes stark
paintings, photography and artwork, and enough
interesting and thought-provoking quotes and excerpts
of novelists and poets to point any visitor towards
searching out and reading something new they might
never have come across had Theresa not created and
filled this site.

UPDATE : Marshall Sponder, of Art In NYC, isn't
convinced the full story of Theresa Duncan's death,
and the disappearance of Jeremy Blake, has been told :

"there's some vital part of the story that's missing

Theresa Duncan claimed back in May on her blog that
she and Blake were being harassed, threatened, smeared
and stalked by Scientologists, and a prominent
Republican donor connected to the Heritage Foundation:

Much of the harassment of me and Mr. Wit was also
conducted by the Church Of Scientology in L. A., who
Cownie also no doubt also "does business with." U.S.
Intelligence "black ops" and "psy ops" have long
relied on (or just outright invented) religious cults
(including the Manson Family--Charles Manson received
150 hours of in-prison Scientology "auditing"), biker
gangs, and the like in Federal Counterintelligence
prorgrams in order to disrupt the counterculture since
the 1960s. Read more about the CIA and cults here and
couch jumping, Katie kidnapping mind controlled movie
star Tom Crusie's meeting with Scooter Libby and State
Department head Richard Armitage here.

While this ongoing illegal harassment of Wit using
Federal employees (or their "cut-out" counterparts)
and Federal funding (your Homeland Security tax
dollars at work!) is meant to deprive us of work and
our livelihoods and even sanity, the harassment also
has a curious sexual focus on Wit that mirrors this J.
Edgar Hoover campaign against Black Panther organizer
and actress Jean Seberg.

On June 1, Theresa engaged in something of a slanging
match in the comments of Charm School, after the blog
posted on her then recent interview with Episcopal
priest Frank Morales. In the comments, she sounded
like she had important information she wanted to share
with as many people as possible. Charm School
described the interview as an "elevated" discourse on:

Gov't conspiracies, dissent in art, Scientology,
Christianity as subversion and Jesus as
Insurrectionist, some meaning of Time, Lennon, P.K.
Dick, Disney, St. Paul, the truth about 911, how the
artist must take risks...

Charm School pays tribute to Theresa here, and points
out that the New York Times, the New York Post and
other media stories that reported on her death: are
whitewashed of any mention of the harassment Wit
claims she and her longtime lover suffered.

Theresa seemed to identify with the actress Jean
Seberg, of whom she wrote:

The declassified "Cointelpro" FBI document requesting
permission to smear the actress and Black Panther
activist Jean Seberg. J. Edgar Hoover sent letters to
the Los Angeles press claiming that Seberg's pregnancy
was the result of an affair with a Black Panther.
Seberg, who was married to playwright Romain Gary,
subsequently miscarried due to the stress of the
scandal. She and Gary buried their child in a glass
coffin to prove that the dead child was Gary's, and to
show the public that they had been lied to. Seberg
suffered mental health problems for years afterward,
and eventually succeeded in commiting suicide after
many attempts. Seberg was gorgeous, one of kind. She
can be seen in "Breathless" "Bonjour Tristesse" and
Otto Preminger's "Joan of Arc.

The method of suicide Theresa Duncan allegedly chose
was pills and alcohol, but an official verdict on the
cause of death has not yet been made public, contrary
to the "It's over" style of reporting in the New York
Times, which claimed a police source had confirmed

UPDATE : The interview Theresa Duncan conducted with
Father Frank Morales in late May also includes her
partner Jeremy Blake commenting on how the punk music
scene had changed in New York since the 9/11 attacks.

Very interesting.

The general tone of the interview, while discussing
government and military programs against the American
people, certainly doesn't sound like a person who was
either suicidal or mentally ill.

Theresa sounds like somebody who was soaking up new
information and sharing her knowledge and thirsting
for more. She also supplies some of the best insights
into Philip K Dick's infamous 'epiphany' that you'll
read online.

One further note, many of the documents and government
and military programs Frank Morales discusses in this
interview are declassified and available online. So
it's best not to dismiss the entire conversation as
wacko conspiracy talk. If you pay attention, and
follow up with some critical Googling, you might learn
some very interesting things.

UPDATE : The smearing of Theresa Duncan and Jeremy
Duncan by 'Anonymous' commenters has well and truly begun.
