anyone know this lunatic?
So I’m scanning through my new email yesterday when the email below pops up. This is actually the second or third email I’ve received from this guy and I have to admit I’m completely baffled. First, the emails are going to my university email address and they are being sent to a bunch of other faculty at my university. Considering my interests in Mormonism, I wouldn’t be surprised if the guy found some other email address of mine, but to send it to me and a bunch of other random faculty at my university is just bizarre. Second, is it just me or is this guy clinically insane? Has anyone else heard of him? Does anyone know who he is? And does anyone know if we can have him admitted somewhere?
Here’s the email in its entirety:

TO CIA MORMON BILL ATKINS, CIA MORMON DAVID BOIES, CIA MORMON JOHN “GLOVER” ROBERTS, CIA MORMON DAVID “KENNEDY”, CIA MORMON SAMUEL “ALITO”, AND THE REST OF THE MANY MORMON ATTORNEYS/JUDGES AROUND THE GLOBE: IT IS ABSOLUTELY ILLEGAL FOR ANY CIA COMPUTER GREMBLIN TO HIDE ANY PICTURE OR ANY TEXT IN THIS EMAIL. FUTHERMORE, IF EVER I RETRACT ANYTHING I’VE WRITEN AND DISTRIBUTED ABOUT THE MORMON CHURCH AND CIA AGENTS OF THE MORMON CHURCH, I WILL HAVE DONE SO BECAUSE I WAS FORCED TO. This is recorded for the record.
(Public Notice. If any pictures or text in this email is hidden, copy and paste will unhide.)
FOR THE RECORD. When I wrote in another email that my daughter Lisa told me she was going to a funeral today, Saturday, February 21, 2009, it was not my intention to slander the deceased black male in Jersey City by writing that he was probably involved in taking drugs. I should not assume that almost every inner city black male is in some way involved in the CIA’s illegal drugs industry which especially targets inner city black males, either as buyers or sellers. My sincere apologies to his mother, a friend of mine, and his aunts and the rest of his family.
February 16, 2009. I called Lisa, my daughter, as I do every day, and I got her answering machine message:
[Her husband Leon’s voice in the background] “Say Hello this is”
[Lisa’s voice] “Hello this is Leitha”
[End of answering machine message]
Lisa’s name is Lisa. My name is Leitha. (I have no idea how is it that Lisa said her name is Leitha. Hypnosis? I do not know. I thought about finding the recent photograph of a parrot in the Mormon church’s Deseret News but then decided not to. I cannot say anything else about this matter, not at this time. I was not too taken aback to hear my daughter’s answering machine message because, knowing that CIA agents of the Mormon church attempt to disorient me, I am always mentally and emotionally prepared for anything so that nothing catches me off guard.) I left a message and called back later.
Nat ate dinner in the living room because he wanted to finish watching a movie, (American Gangster or one of the other of the CIA’s movies that promote negative stereotypes of African Americans). While eating dinner in the kitchen I read The New York Times, starting from the Op/Ed page and going backwards as I do usually. While staring at the advertisement on page A3, thinking about the amazing resemblance between the black model my daughter Lisa, before she became stricken with MS, I bit down.on something gritty.
This model looks like Lisa looked, say, 15 years ago. Not the sassy stance, just the facial features.
ESCADA This blue multicolored silk crepe de chine dress ($1550) is a meticulously hand-draped classic.

I was not eating seafood, I was eating roast chicken, broccoli rabe and cranberry sauce. I put the object in a napkin and looked at it, puzzled. Then, all of a sudden my tongue felt a jaggedness on one of my teeth, and that’s when I realized, I was looking at a piece of one of my teeth.
Here’s what happened: At the moment I turned The New York Times newspaper to the page with the advertisement featuring a model who looks like my daughter Lisa used to look, Ann downstairs, watching me via Nasdaq “super technology” surveillance camera lighting fixtures in the ceiling in the kitchen, pressed a Nasdaq Taser Easy Button remote control which caused a laser beam (that penetrates walls and floors and ceilings) to slice off part of one of my capped tooth – the third tooth from the front on the right side of my mouth. It was done with great precision, so much so that the tooth is now in the shape of Mormon Incorporated’s letter J. My tooth is now an advertisement for Mormon Incorporated, thanks to Mormon CIA sadistic wiseguys. (I cannot at this time document the information about Mormon CIA Bluebird Bluefly Hungry Jacks and Jills.)
IT IS ILLEGAL FOR ANY CIA COMPUTER GREMBLIN TO HIDE THESE LOGOS OR MY PICTURE:
Mormon Incorporated’s JJill.com http://doit.jjay.cuny.edu/
Two years ago I woke up one morning to discover that a hole was drilled in part of one of the teeth in the bottom partial in my mouth. Ann and Bob visited uninvitedly during the middle of the night. I went to the dentist and he filled the tooth but eventually the filling wore out. A few months later when I spent the night with my daughter Lisa I woke up to discover that the rest of the same tooth was drilled out completely. I do not know the names of Lisa’s neighbors. I detest bully tactics. And rather than shrink back, I feel even more emboldened to continue writing and distributing. If every tooth in my mouth is chipped or has a hole in it, I honestly do not care. If I have difficulty chewing I will eat oatmeal, even though I do not like oatmeal.
Coincidentally the day Lisa told me about the death, Friday, February 20, 2009, is the day Saks Fifth Avenue ran a second advertisement featuring the black model who looks a lot like Lisa looked before she was stricken with MS:
Marc Jacobs This sleeveless shift ($1100) made out of lightweight cotton strawberry brocade is now in our new Marc Jacobs shop on Three.
(Saks Fifth Avenue advertisement, The New York Times, February 20, 2009, page A3)
I like Talbot style clothing, and I like LL Bean style clothing, too. I do not like Afrocentric clothing. I do not like Afrocentric hair mops. I do not like Afrocentric expressions like “girlfriend” and “yo”. I do not like Afrocentric raphiphop culture. I do not like Afrocentric fist bumps.
Yes, I am very guilty of Anglo Aryan “identity theft”. In the year 1999 or 2000 CIA agents of the Mormon church ran an advertisement for Talbot in The New York Times featuring a black boy who looked very much like my grandson Wesley. He was modeling a sweater.
The caption in the advertisement read: “SUITABLE FOR FRAMING”
I did not have the foresight to save the advertisement however one of the CIA agents who are pretending to be Jehovah’s Witnesses told me the advertisement is saved, and will be produced as evidence during the LEGAL CASE.

While Lisa and I were talking on the telephone I decided to go to the living room window to see if there was any kind of synchronization taking place. There was. I saw a black female police officer giving out parking tickets. And I saw the imitation police van drive by. And I saw a USPS We Deliver For You truck parked on the corner of Prospect Park West and 13th Street. And I saw another USPS We Deliver For You truck drive by on Prospect Park West, as the police officer walked nearer and nearer to the crime scene ribbon and cone in the street toward the end of this block, in front of 505 13th Street. And then I saw a yellow cab pull up and double park in front of 481, directly across the street. Yellow cabs are a rare sight here in Brooklyn, especially during the day. After I asked Lisa to hold on a minute, I ran to my workstation and got my camera. By the time I went back to the window the cab had moved to in front of 475, across the street from 478 where David and Julie and their three children and their dog, Nibbles, live. The orange EAR car was still parked in front of 478. Phil and Danielle with their baby got out of the yellow cab now showcasing a Level 3 Communication T symbol. Phil, Danielle and their baby live at 475, upstairs from Brett and Amy and their two daughters and their dog, Sally.

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) â€” Larry Miller, the car sales mogul who turned the Utah Jazz into one of the National Basketball Association’s most stable teams, died Friday at his home. He was 64.
Miller had a heart attack in June 2008, then spent nearly two months in the hospital for complications of diabetes. He was in a wheelchair after his release from the hospital and had his legs amputated six inches below the knee in January.
A tireless worker with a knack for the most minute details, Miller started his career in an auto parts shop, then built a car dealership empire that made him one of Utahâ€™s most recognized and influential people.
â€œEvery citizen in our state feels a little empty today,â€ Gov. Jon Huntsman of Utah said in a statement. â€œLarry was Utah and Utah was Larry. He inspired many and served countless. We all have been made better by his extraordinary life.â€
Miller expanded his realm in 1985 when he bought a 50 percent share of the Jazz as the team appeared on the verge of moving to Miami. Miller bought the rest of the team a year later, declining an offer that would have sent the team to Minnesota.
The Salt Lake Tribune quoted him as saying, â€œIt was an opportunity, I realized, to give a community and a state that I care a great deal about something that maybe nobody else could give them.â€
Miller sat in his courtside seat, wearing khakis, a golf shirt and tennis shoes, for nearly every game, giving his players and the fans an unobstructed view into his emotions. The team made two straight appearances in the N.B.A. finals, in 1997 and 1998.

Reader, CIA agent Justin Abernathy (one of the Mormon CIA agents who secretly do not go along with their church’s satanic hidden agenda) asked me to tell you that, if you’re looking for real excitement, intrigue, and adventure, don’t waste your time watching CIA produced mind-control movies and CIA produced mind-control television programs and CIA produced mind-control books (Mormon Incorporated would give away free copies of Twilight and other books written by CIA Mormon Stephanie Meyers, and Harry Potter books written by CIA-M16 agent J.K. Rowling, if they weren’t fearful that some of the people might look that gift horse in the mouth), instead, learn how to read Level 3 Communication, the “Rosetta Stone” language of Mormon CIA Bluebird Blueflies, and their cohorts. Support the free press by buying a newspaper every day, and, as you become familiar with recognizing hate symbols(http://www.adl.org/
hate_symbols/default.asp), spend some time analyzing headlines, articles, photographs, and especially, wording in advertisements.
Before taking a look at the following men and women who have died while Congressmen and Congresswomen, or died while campaigning for, or thinking about campaigning for, a Congressional seat, from 1998 to the present, I must document that, according to CIA agent Justin Abernathy, there have been a few situations where a person, CIA agent, was reported dead but was in fact given a new identity and a new assignment. He did not elaborate, but I know he was not referring to John Kennedy Jr or his wife or his sister-in-law, or any of the elderly white males, or the middle age white male, or the black male, or either of the two Asians, or either of the three black females. I asked CIA agent David Abernathy if Jennifer Dunn is a Mormon, and he didn’t say. I asked him if Hillary Clinton is a Mormon, and he didn’t say yes, and he didn’t say no.
The wreckage of John F. Kennedyâ€™s single-engine aircraft shows no evidence so far that it experienced a fire, in-flight breakup or engine problems before it crashed into the Atlantic Ocean and killed Kennedy and two others July 16, the National Transportation Safety Board said in a statement issued yesterday. …
Kennedyâ€™s Piper Saratoga was on approach to Marthaâ€™s Vineyard when it made a series of turns and then fell from the sky at 9:41 p.m., killing Kennedy, his wife, Carolyn Bessette Kennedy, 33, and her sister, Lauren Bessette, 34.
(Kennedy Plane Fond to Be Fully Functional, Washington Post, July 31, 1999)
I do not suggest that any of the Mormon CIA agents of the Washington Post infer or boast that there was foul play. I suggest that some of the CIA agents who are pretending to be Jehovah’s Witnesses in Washington DC suggest that there most definitely is the odor of stenchingly foul play, and they want me to document that there is.

John F. Kennedy, Jr. was the son of president John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and the younger brother of Caroline Kennedy. John Jr. appeared as a three-year-old in one of the most famous film clips of the 1960s, saluting his father’s casket after the president was assassinated in 1963. As an adult Kennedy studied law and worked for a few years in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office; later he founded the political magazine George. JFK Jr. was a famously eligible bachelor before finally marrying the former Carolyn Bessette in 1996. Kennedy, his wife and her sister were all killed in 1999 when a private plane piloted by Kennedy crashed in the Atlantic Ocean near Martha’s Vineyard. … intense political pressure to run for office included New York Democrats urging him to run for seats vacated by Rep. Ted Weiss and later, the Senate seat that Daniel Patrick Moynihan would vacate, and which former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, also a Democrat, secured in 2000. One private poll, according to the British newspaper the Guardian, had JFK Jr. sporting a 65 – percent approval rating.

Journalism is the craft of conveying news, descriptive material and comment via a widening spectrum of media. These include newspapers, magazines, radio and television, the internet and, more recently, the cellphone. Journalistsâ€”be they writers, editors or photographers; broadcast presenters or producersâ€”serve as the chief purveyors of information and opinion in contemporary mass society. “News is what the consensus of journalists determines it to be.” 
From informal beginnings in the Europe of the 18th century, stimulated by the arrival of mechanized printingâ€”in due course by mass production and in the 20th century by electronic communications technologyâ€”today’s engines of journalistic enterprise include large corporations with global reach.
The formal status of journalism has varied historically and, still varies vastly, from country to country. The modern state and hierarchical power structures in general have tended to see the unrestricted flow of information as a potential threat, and inimical to their own proper function. Hitler described the Press as a “machine for mass instruction,” ideally, a “kind of school for adults.”  Journalism at its most vigorous, by contrast, tends to be propelled by the implications at least of the attitude epitomized by the Australian journalist John Pilger: “Secretive power loathes journalists who do their job, who push back screens, peer behind faÃ§ades, lift rocks. Opprobrium from on high is their badge of honour.” (Wikipedia.com)
The term Fourth Estate refers to the press. The term goes back at least to Thomas Carlyle in the first half of the 19th century. Thomas Macaulay used it in 1828.
Novelist Jeffrey Archer in his work The Fourth Estate made the observation: “In May 1789, Louis XVI summoned to Versailles a full meeting of the ‘Estates General‘. The First Estate consisted of three hundred clergy. The Second Estate, three hundred nobles. The Third Estate, six hundred commoners. Some years later, after the French Revolution, Edmund Burke, looking up at the Press Gallery of the House of Commons, said, ‘Yonder sits the Fourth Estate, and they are more important than them all.'” (Wikipedia.com)
