Did Koch eat Ananda’s Chocolates?

[…]in a stable of loser candidates for President.” “The Times story, very briefly, suggested Koch was willing to at least consider Hillary,” Bill said. “Maybe you did get to him,” Jay said, smiling and looking at me. “The chocolates went to his Wichita receptionist – she said she’d give them to him.” “Well, she apparently did,” Jay said. “He does seem to be more open than before.” “Yes, his Sanders comment and now this Hillary one.” “Another dose could have an even greater effect,” Bill said, ” – that and his growing awareness of impending mortality.” “Aging does cause some of us to be more philosophical – and open-minded,” I said. “And Charles is five years ahead of me. It’s easy to get to Wichita. I’ll make another […]

[…]change) in presenting a different kind of futuristic possibility that rises from the ashes of the Koch Brothers and other political special interests familiar in today’s world.   Discriminating fiction readers with a penchant for more than entertainment will relish its approach, diversity, and complex observations on the processes and challenges of mental […]

Author Fake Interview – Book Review

[…]the 19th century – a few Presidential Candidates, and some plutocrats – including the Brothers Koch.” Do you treat Trump? “He’s number 30 in the book, but we chose to not treat him.” And why not? “There’s nothing there to treat!” Andrade chuckled. “He’s so simple-minded we thought it would be a waste of effort – and our special chocolate.” Chocolate? “Just read the book.” Who is ‘we’? “It’s me and five close friends. We call ourselves the harmless team. We selected the 29 and treated them all earlier this year and in late 2015.” You treated them all – with chocolate? I asked. He looked at me annoyingly, again. “One of them is a phenomenal organic chemist. Just read the book. It’s free, on line, easy to read.” Why is it free? “Well, most of the 29 ideologues we treat would love to get back at me. If it’s free they can’t argue that I’m benefiting from exposing their mental incapacities.” Interesting. Will you talk or argue with our readers? How can they contact you? “By going to . They can read the book there, download it, and see the Chosen 29 (and their Twitter addresses). They can […]

Chapter 11: Delivery and Treatment

[…]“And that takes more research, study, and planning.”   “And there’s New York City for David Koch. Washington, D.C. may be the best location for our five Supreme Court Justices,” Bill mentioned.   “As well as for LaPierre, Norquist, and cancer-salesman Donohue,” I added.   “Jay, could you get to Kentucky right away?” I asked. “McConnell is critical to the 2016 budget process and needs to be more cooperative with Ryan than he ever was with Boehner.”   “Consider it done,” Jay said. “I’ll finish the homework and make reservations right away. And I’ll try to treat several other relevant Kentucky folks on the same trip.”   “Do include Rand Paul.”   “Of course.”   “I’ll try to get to Scalia’s gig at the U of Santa Clara. He’s to visit a constitutional law class and to speak to students, staff, and faculty in the university’s Recital Hall. I’ll be in Fremont checking in on my Mom – she should be celebrating her 95th birthday at nearly the same time,” I said.   “Wow. Those are good genes,” Bill said.   “I hope so. Hopefully I’ve inherited some of her longevity. This project has taken much longer than I’d envisioned. […]

Chapter 6: Patient Priorities

Smith, Lamar – Texas District 21; Chair, House Committee on Science.   These 29 and the additional ‘convenience’ patients, effectively treated, may facilitate a tipping point and a major change in governance via the Federal Government.     “We could use Centennial Valley as a key delivery strategy,” Bill said. “We could arrange a gig at […]

Chapter 10: Plutocrats – and Others

[…]another Romney campaign,” I suggested. “The Romney defeat in 2012 really impacted Charles and David Koch. They really didn’t expect it.”   “Mike Lee might ask for more of it – he’s up for reelection,” Jay said. “Better I earn some of it.”   “If you need a reference, you can use me,” Bill smiled. “I’ve been on their Montana ranch.”   “You mean Centennial Valley?” I asked.   “Yes. You have to drive right through the Koch spread to get to the U’s Humanities Center – the Taft Center. It’s 26 miles from Interstate 15 on an unpaved road.”   “The Koch Brothers’ father, Fred, started the Koch empire with a number of cattle ranches, right?”   “Yes, ranches were part of it. The spread in Southern Montana is Beaverhead Ranch, part of their Matador Cattle Company,” Bill noted. “It borders a major National Wildlife Refuge.”   “The Taft Center is a great facility,” I recalled. “Diana and I visited there some five years ago. On the way out, heading East towards West Yellowstone, we were stopped by a shredded tire.”   “The way in and out from the West is shorter and easier on tires,” Bill said.   […]

Chapter 12: Outcomes and Tomorrow

[…]or problems. I decided not to get up to West Palm Beach, as we had already accessed Bill and David Koch in Centennial Valley.”   “How’d you get to the Rubio and Bush people?” Jay asked.   “Interesting. I got to Bush just weeks before he dropped out. The office was quite big. I noticed the cars outside and in the lot and realized there would be lots of staff inside. Upon entering the outer office area, I selected a Latina at an information table. Her nametag said Adriana. I said, ‘Hello. I’m very interested in Mr. Bush’, pausing and looking at her: ‘is it true his wife is a Latina?’   “Cool,” Jay said.   “She lit right up. ‘Yes, she said, ‘Her name is Columba – she’s from Guadalajara. She’s a great lady.’ Then I asked, ‘did they meet in Mexico, because I understand Mr. Bush speaks Spanish’. ‘Yes, yes!’ she said. ‘They were just teen-agers – it’s a great story’.”   “You are good,” Bill smiled. “Go on…”   “By then two other staff had gathered round. I asked if they knew Columba. They all responded, saying she comes to the office now and then, and that […]

Chapter 8: Presidential Candidates

[…]through regulations on emissions…   He’s said that conservative donors Charles and David Koch have ‘always stood for freedom, equality and opportunity’ in a tribute published by Time.   “But he seems to be dropping fast in support – there’s also the issue he’s up for reelection to the Senate.” I said.   “I think he’ll hang in there for a while,” Jay said. “And he’s an important Senator. Paul Ryan listens to him.”   “And vice versa.”     Paul’s wife, Kelley, is a free lance writer and has worked as a political consultant for The Strategy Group for Media, one of whose clients was then Senate candidate Ted Cruz. She is a Rhodes College graduate, focusing on communication and English. In 2015 she published the book True and Constant Friends: Love and Inspiration from Our Grandmothers, Mothers, and Friends. She was born in 1963 in Kentucky. Her parents are Hilton and Lillian Ashby; her father was with the Air Force – the family traveled regularly. One of her greatest influences is her Irish grandmother.   Kelley played a key role in Rand Paul’s decision to run for President, noting that it was an easier decision than his deciding […]

Chapter 9: Congress

[…]of much Koch interest and support.   Gardner participated in a Candidates’ Panel at the Koch 2014 Dana Point Summit, receiving Koch support there and along the way.   Govtrack gives him a moderately right ideology score. He has had interests in energy efficiency and renewable energies, as well as in contraceptives.   He lives in Yuma, in NE Colorado, with his wife Jaime and their three children: Alyson, Thatcher, and Caitlyn.     “Gardner may be salvageable, in spite of his attention from the Koch apparatus,” Jay said. “His renewable energy interests merit cultivating.”   “I think so, too,” I said. “And he’s so close by.”     Gowdy, Trey – South Carolina District 4 (Spartenburg, Greenville); Benghazi Committee chair; former prosecutor.   Gowdy earned a B.A. in history from Baylor University in 1986 and a J.D. from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1989.  His wife is Terri Dillard; they have two children, Watson and Abigail. The Gowdy family also includes three dogs: Judge, Jury, and Bailiff. Wikipedia says Trey is a Southern Baptist.   “You gotta be kidding!” Jay chuckled. “Judge, Jury, Bailiff?”   “He’s a gung-ho prosecutor,” I said. “Remember the Benghazi hearings.” […]

Chapter 2: From Eleusis to Revelation

[…]related neurochemicals are available: Daniel Perrine, The Chemistry of Mind-Altering Drugs, 1996. David Nutt, Drugs without the Hot Air, 2012 Mike Power, Drugs Unlimited, 2013 Ben Sessa, The Psychedelic Renaissance, 2012.   “Hofmann could make almost anything – and Shulgin made nearly everything,” Tom said. He was new to the discussion. Tom and I worked together some decades ago on materials for medical devices. He’s one of those organic chemists who can make almost anything. He even looks a bit like Shulgin! I recruited Tom by telling him I was starting a new, interesting, politically effective, and largely illegal project. Tom was well aware of my concerns about the state of the nation and the planet – and was generally in sync with the concerns of the group. He was interested. “I’m working with – and leading – a very small group concerned with the rapid deterioration of our democracy – and the rapid and possibly irreversible degradation of the planet,” I said. “We think that the time for politics is over.” “Because it doesn’t work?” Tom asked. “Because of gerrymandering, money in politics, plutocracy?” “Exactly,” I agreed. “The nation is so far over to the right – controlled by […]

Chapter 1: Concerns and Beginnings

[…]Most conservative ideologues are supported by – purchased by – plutocratic dollars. The Koch brothers, the deVos empire, the Adelsons, and many others spend enormous resources on sponsoring, supporting, and purchasing Congressmen and candidates, who then work to replicate the rigid, ideological mental states of their sponsors.   These many considerations led to my own recent revelation: since we can’t get rid of ideologues, can we ‘change’ them? Can we soften the walls, remove some of the bars – open some of the windows – even doors? Revelation is a word and process very dear to the ultra-conservative Mormon majority in Utah. Although normally referring to direct input from ‘God’ to the ‘prophets’, Mormons as individuals are expected to seek and receive their own private revelations – a significant change in personal understanding, belief, or perspective.   How might we ‘engineer’ private revelations for Congressmen and their staff, for candidates and their supporters, and for voting constituents – and for others who ‘need’ such insight?   And that became The Plan: the ‘engineering’ of revelations…     What is the genesis of ideology? Why do people believe rather than think? There’s an old Buddhist saying: ‘Every belief system is an […]

Chapter 3: Harmless – The Team

[…]seeking audiences with the Brothers, literally being interviewed by them – the hopefuls and the Kochs seducing each other. And since the Koch Brothers’ actions, philosophies, and policies are destroying the planet – they are evil.”   “Didn’t the Times report that they and their cohorts are planning to spend nearly a billion dollars on the 2016 elections?” Lucien asked.   “Yes, more than either major political party,” said Jay. “They’re already on our list.”   “A large cover story on Charles Koch in USA Today,” Bill said, “reported that the Koch folks will, in 2016, anoint the one GOP candidate whose platform is most agreeable to them – giving his campaign additional funds.”   “Adelson is doing the same thing in Vegas,” Jay said. “The GOP hopefuls come to genuflect before him, hoping he’ll put a spot or two of multi-millions in their hands.”   “Certainly more effective than holy water on their foreheads,” I said.   “I don’t know how far we can really get in 3 to 6 months,” Bill said. “Maybe we ought to rehearse and work towards the new President and Congress elected in late 2016. That’s less than 18 months away.”   “Interesting,” I […]

Chapter 5: Testing

[…]think he would have been fascinated by MDMA.” Ben Sessa, a coworker of Carhart-Harris – and of David Nutt – published The Psychedelic Renaissance several years ago. Sessa was actually the first subject in one of Carhart-Harris’ early psilocybin studies. He writes that …the psychedelic state can result in important changes to one’s self, one’s relationships and one’s entire outlook on life…these changes can be real, lasting and positive. With specific reference to MDMA, he says it: …is able to induce a mental state that is usually pleasurable to almost every user, almost every time. A recent paper in the Canadian Medical Association, by K W Tupper and others, noted: [the re-emergence] of a paradigm that acknowledges the importance of set (i.e., psychological expectations), setting (i.e., physical environment) and the therapeutic clinician–patient relationship as critical elements for facilitating healing experiences and realizing positive outcomes. The paper summarizes the ‘psychedelic agents currently under investigation for their potential benefits as adjuncts to psychotherapy’, including MDMA. Although MDMA is not a psychedelic, it was included due to interest in and studies on its great potential for psychotherapy. It also said that during the sessions … interaction between patient and therapists is kept to […]
