News from the weird desk........

Bear with me as I follow a thread......... it gets a little strange towards the end.

Found this really neat website where you plonk down your hard earned shekels and perhaps even see it grow by 5 times.

Welcome to an investor and industry news portal for the homeland defense and security sector. The HDS website does not make recommendations, but offers a unique free information portal to research news, exclusive articles, interviews, investor conferences and a growing list of participating public companies in the sector.

One of the companies it promotes due to some advertising space is The Harrington Group reportedly based in Sydney (well the share registry is) although the head office is said to be in Perth.

Harrington Group Ltd. (HGR) (OTC.PK: HGRLF) (Corporate Profile, News and Info) is a less-lethal weapons development and commercialization company publicly listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) under the symbol "HGR". HGR is developing ShockRounds™, revolutionary electrified projectiles that are intended to decrease the use of lethal force and potentially minimize casualties. HGR is headquartered in Sydney, Australia and operates out of Santa Clara, California.

Interesting news on Harrington(currently trading at 10 cents) here:

Homeland Security, Defense and Human Effects Experts Appointed to Harrington Advisory Board

Distribution Source : Market Wire

Date : Tuesday, March 22, 2005

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Market Wire - Mar 22, 2005) -- MDM Group, Inc. (OTC: MDDM) advises that MDM Group subsidiary, Harrington Group Limited (HGR.AX) earlier today advised the Australian Stock Exchange of the appointment of an additional three world-renowned homeland security experts as founding members of the Harrington Group Advisory Board.

Joining Colonel John Alexander, a global authority on non-lethal weapons and defense, will be Dr. Christopher Green, a forensic medicine and electrophysiology specialist, Dr. Edward Stephen, a specialist in pharmacology and bioterrorism defense, and Dr. Allen Bain, a leading pharmacologist focused on specialised drug development including new treatments for disorders of electrically active tissue.

The combined expertise of the Advisory Board will provide Harrington with outstanding guidance in strategic product development and commercialisation, and grow the Company's profile in the law enforcement, defense and homeland security sectors.

Harrington Group CEO Marshall Couper said: "All four Advisory Board members have extensive knowledge of Harrington's ShockRounds(TM) electric ammunition technology, as well as outstanding expertise in less-than-lethal weapons, Homeland Security issues and human effects.

"Harrington is focused on accelerating its product development, formalising strategic and commercial relationships and securing the expertise of leaders in the field. The formation of a world class Advisory Board is an important step forward in this strategy."

Joining Colonel Alexander are:

Christopher C. Green, MD, PhD, FAAFS

Dr. Green is in the practice of forensic medicine (American Academy of Forensic Sciences) and neuroimaging (Detroit Medical Center/Harper University Hospital/Wayne School of Medicine). His work clinically relates to his expertise as a neurophysiologist with a specialty in electrophysiology. A special research interest involves the way cognition in "making decisions under stress" are modulated by brain systems and neuromuscular control. He is both a faculty member at the Medical School and Fellow in Diagnostic Radiology, and Executive Director for Emergent Technologies.

Dr. Green serves on numerous Department of Defense, Intelligence and National Academy of Sciences Commissions. He Chairs the Science Board for the Undersecretary of the Army for Operations Research and has served as Chair of the Board on Army Science and Technology. He holds the National Intelligence Medal for investigations in forensic intelligence and served as an Officer and continues as a consultant with the Central Intelligence Agency.

John Alexander (guess how he tied that bolt into a knot) is HEAVILY involved in remote viewing community as well as chasing UFO's in Nevada. Those in the UFO community would know him as "The Penguin".

John and others in an International Remote Viewing Association founders pic.

Christopher "Kit" Green who has been described as a "Chairman of a Homeland Security Committee" was one of those strange guys involved with remote viewing(RV) research. Here's a photo of Kit with Hal Puthoff and Pat Price during some SRI research for the CIA and the Navy.

Oh, and Hal Puthoff in this photo is the same Hal Puthoff in the photo of Alexander above, and the same Hal Puthoff in the IRVA founders picture (naturally enough). And if you want to go one stage stranger do a look around on the Scientology ties to the original RV research.

Green has also been described as in charge of the CIA "weird desk" in the 70's.

And for more on ties between Alexander, Puthoff and Green see Armen Victorian's article which was printed in Lobster magazine in 93.

I find it interesting that a subject such as remote viewing that was funded for something like 20 years by the CIA and the Navy would be pooh-poohed by the Skeptics. It eventually was shelved but oddly enough the portfolio ( for a better word) was taken over by SAIC in 1994 they are said to have pulled the plug in '95.

It's also interesting that a few of these guys that were involved in the "psychic spying" game are now in Dept of Homeland Security positions.

And I'm going nowhere near the UFO thing that Green and Alexander are involved in, but if you could see though time and space wouldn't it be cool to look onboard a spaceship?


  • I am always amazed at how many delusional crackpots actually make a living from the defense department. But maybe it is so obvious I shouldn't be. Tens of thousands of hugely self important, pudgy middle age men, talking in military terms over coffee and doughnuts. They remind me of children who earnestly explain to their parents why the damn they have built in mother's flower bed is so necessary for national defense.

  • Hello Peter! Thanks for popping by in your sojourn across Europe.

    Some lyrics to accompany your thoughts.

  • Christopher Green is involved in MRI research in Detroit which has (as one of many purposes) the development of a new form of lie detector working from the MRI brain scans. He also claims to have been present as an observer during the "autopsy" of the aliens whose remains were said to have been recovered after their saucer crashed or exploded in New Mexico, way back when. And that's only the beginning of of some very odd anecdotes.
