Manchurian candidates DO still exist.
This sort of thing is not out of the realm of possibility.
Project Artichoke, Project Bluebird, MKUltra, MKSearch.
Extensive amounts of the paper trail have been shredded and all files on the subject since 1972 have been classified or nonexistent.
There are still former black-ops soldiers who don’t remember isolated sections of their life. They have ‘handlers’ and 'trigger words'. All it takes is a phone call. Some say they packed bags, some say they didn’t - regardless, they wake up somewhere else entirely after being 'deactivated' with another trigger word. These are real people, and real operations that could and probably still are taking place. It’s not outside the realm of possibility for any one individual to be reprogrammed into a tool to be used by whomever for whatever agenda.
That’s not to say that James Holmes was by any means one of these individuals. It’s just that nothing much surprises me and nothing much is impossible or improbable. We have to ask all the questions; examine all possibilities.
The truth is, these programs were openly performed in the seventies and were deemed to be "WORKING" operations. Meaning, they were making great strides, only to “come to a complete stop” in the seventies. Anyone that believes that operations have ceased are just naive.
There have been numerous shooters who have been questioned in regards to being reprogrammed into 'sleeper assassins'. Most notably Sirhan Sirhan, whom killed Robert F. Kennedy. He never made an attempt to escape and could not remember anything about the shooting. Also, the man who killed John Lennon - Michael Chapman. He killed John Lennon but didn’t run. He stood in place, dropped the weapon and stepped back. When the police arrived, he was calmly reading The Catcher in the Rye.
Just a reminder that James Holmes was described as a brilliant mind who was incredibly interested in neuroscience and the human brain.
