When it comes to some of the more let’s say shady actions of their government, and I’m talking blood red shady, a lot of people in America, and I’m saying America because look here my feets are in America, they like to spout off about how some hard things have to be done to protect the whole of this great country.
They say this very easily when not faced with all the little details of what those hard things really are. The devil isn’t in the details, just all the fucking facts, and being purposely stupid and still stupid because a man or woman who did not get educated is not stupid but when it comes down to someone who stirs themselves away from educating themselves to suit their views, now that’s just fucking ignorant.
For the greater good.
They also say this pretty easy when there isn’t much chance of these things happening to themselves or their loved ones. Or that’s what they stupidly think. The word stupid comes up a lot when you talk about people who live their lives and want to force the rest of the world to live their lives also by sort sighted thinking.
It’s easy to sit on your couch watching The Fraught Housewives Of Another City Picked At Random with your minivan sporting a bumper sticker that reads DRILL BABY DRILL or KILL THEM ALL AND LET GOD SORT THEM OUT when you haven’t had your life destroyed by negligent companies or had a drone bomb dropped on your home with an “Oopse, but we got the guy were aiming for also” as a grinning government shell afterthought.
But what I’m really trying to stir my thoughts towards talking about all of this are the stripping of freedoms, the blindness to basic human rights, and the deniability of how we live our day to day lives and as a nation for the so called greater good.
In this country we have a very special knack for eating whole hog this notion of how virtuous our actions have been throughout our nations very brief history and if there have been mistakes, if there are mistake now, they are either so far in the past they aren’t relevant today or mistakes made by the other side of the political spectrum or most of the time it happens for the greater good.
But for the most part we’d rather not have the details at all because it’s easier to swallow a bucket of bullshit and have a clean conscious that way.
Well, not clean but dirt that has been spray painted over.
Talking about muddled thinking gets muddly.
We the people are part of the nation who once thought owning people as property and treating them as property was an alright idea. Oh, and saying well all countries owned slaves at one time or another in their history is a shit compact in the conversation because- One, not true. Two, so that somehow makes it better that we did. And Three, we were one of the last powerful nations to stop the practice of owning another human being or at least having laws that condoned it fully. That’s one of the main reasons slavery was a big part of the Civil War was that it was hurting achievable trade with other nations.
And then you have the days we currently live in where we have politicians who can stand in the middle of our houses of government, in the year 2016 as I write this, and say things like, “Actually slavery was a great thing for those people” and “We are post racism”, and no one bats hardly an eye.
We talk false truths trying to not deal with sins our nation made and we still haven’t really ever addressed by saying “Slavery was so far in our past” It isn’t. “Slavery was 450 years ago” Not true. “Slavery was 200 years ago” A little closer. Slavery actually ended by my calculations, and I suck at math, as I write this sentence it ended around 148 years ago. Not really that long ago. “We wouldn’t have the America that’s the golden light today without the slaves we had then. It was worth it.” Slavery, worth it? We are so cowardly in our acceptance of so many things.
And you know who loves to play in these false truths, the true piece movers in this game. The powerful churches, the modern gigantic companies, and secret societies. Hell, secret societies couldn’t be secret societies without people trying to justify everyday and not so everyday things in life.
I would take some shots at groups like The Hellfire Club or The Card Deck who had a lot of fingers in the financial gains that came from the capture, transport, and selling of slaves all over the world but I’ve pissed them off enough of late.
For the greater good?
During the Civil War the United States government had a group of agents that did what it took to protect the future growth welfare of the nation as to its own hands at work.
During those blood filled years a Barbie was a secret officer of the government who was sent on missions not to assassinate Confederate members but those within their own ranks who were working against the progress of their path to victory.
There are only a few brief mentions of men visiting the president from time to time referred to as a Barbie here and there in records. This has never signaled any red flags with any historians to go into deeper research mode since the name never came up enough to make anyone want to write a book about.
From war to war for the greater good.
We the people are part of the nation who committed the two largest acts of terrorism ever on the planet Earth, so far, and to justify it we manipulate things to have the gall to say it actually saved lives.
Let us study this.
So The Raising couldn’t help stop Japan the same as they helped stop Germany? Sure a few of the members had left the team by this time but we had a Beyond Human group as powerful as a small army on our side and we still dropped those bombs and even if it was true that it saved us from future troop loses, and saved them from future troop loses, even if we had to use them, dropping nuclear bombs on largely civilian areas is terrorism.
Otherwise why do it?
And if you’re taking up the stance it saved lives from future battles then you are admitting that it was terrorism. It was done to terrorize another nation into surrender.
And in the end, for the greater good?
The head of the modern Barbie group; which is a black operations faction of the U.S. government, is a former Manhattan Project security agent codenamed Toly. Unknown to everyone involved in that project, including his base superiors, thought he was just another security agent; he was in fact there in case of a double agent or a traitor working against the project being completed.
He was a bullet in the head type of guy, a very good bullet in the head type of guy, and there were people who left that project and were never heard from again.
Very good at the bullet in the head.
Toly went from the Manhattan Project to an assignment after the war tracking down possible Beyond Humans for possible government work. This is when he disappeared from the espionage map as having any sort of identity. He has hardly ever been seen in public since and is a very powerful man because Operation Barbie isn’t his only stick to poke the world with but it’s the one that’s had its spider web in the government body the longest and thus has the most ties to play with.
He was very good at any job his government has asked him to undertake and that would petrify you if you know the types of things he has been asked to do, and from him came the modern Barbie operation as it is now. It is his baby, his philosophy, his molded weapon, his power instrument.
In the intelligence world everyone is trying to move up more and more until they disappear to new ladders with every bigger levels to trying and move up to.
The controllers in the intelligence world tend to get addicted to the levels of power they can weld against ants.
Ants would be what the intelligence world calls the rest of us.
We the people are part of the nation who sprayed chemicals on our own neighborhoods knowing this wasn’t safe. We created neat little adverts and documentaries showing children in pools smiling as we sprayed poison on them. We aimed directly at some Big Wheels rolling down the street and showered dollhouse during there housekeeping, all to push an agenda and profits. All for our lives now of longer lasting crops, that maybe poisoning us, copyrighted seeds, and better ways of killing bugs, pests, and people.
But let’s not stop there.
A little radiation injected into black soldiers and in capsules given to pregnant women got us to better headache medicines, which maybe ripping our bodies apart from overuse, and soldiers that can take a day or two more before they die of radiation poisoning when we put them in harms way for political gains.
Give some poor children small pox, gut a few more to make sure operations will work before a rich child lays down on the operating table, lock one in a room under a very important structure and constantly shock him so he will until the day he dies power this very important place.
And in the end, for the greater good?
One of the things that gave groups like Barbie so much leeway to do what they “need” to do was when more and more whistleblowers started popping up and more, and more dark and not so dark corners of the government wanted these leaks stopped no matter what it would take; so the idea of laws not mattering means is the law of the land.
And us citizens won’t even bother to look closer.
During the 1960’s within the United States intelligence community a term starting cropping up among agents, “Don’t respect the secrets, traitor to the flag, bullet to the head.”
In a past or is it future…whatever, in a story that has or will come out I talked about how large a part of our government black operations are and for the most part they have no real oversight.
You can see the huge amount of money we spend every year on black operations. Take that official number and ten times it and that’s closer to the facts. That should have you pissing in your pants, forget illegal wiretaps and social media information mining, those are things you know your government is probably doing if you have any sense, even before someone blows a whistle or two, but the things of black ops, not having even a clue one to what is going on, well, that should scare us all.
We the people are part of the nation who took other Americans and in some cases took everything they owned also so we could herd them into concentration camps. Men, women, and children no matter where they actually where from, just needed to fit the role, and no matter how long their families had been in America, pulled from beds, pulled from jobs, pulled from their lives.
And for those people who don’t like me using the word concentration camp in regards to the government rounding up of Japanese Americans during World War Two and putting them in prison camps. I guess prison camps wouldn’t suit you either? Well, fuck off, it’s the truth.
Another one those lessons we either don’t teach in our schools or they only get a brief mention just as with the attempted genocide of the Native Americans, the treatment of Japanese Americans during World War Two are signs of cowardice. We hide from addressing these black points in our history.
Makes you wonder when you think about it if the war with Japan had went really bad would they have put in an order to Sears for people size ovens and gave a boom to the railroad industry.
For the greater good?
Operation Barbie went from protecting government secrets and taking out traitors to being there to kill young Beyond Humans in case their lives are more a risk than freedom is worth.
And by young I’m not even talking teenagers here. Only a handful of younger than teen Beyond Humans have been known publically but it’s actually happening more and more every year which should hint at the scale of Barbie operations within the country.
When a lead of information brings them to a Beyond Human child suspect a team is sent to stake out the child’s life. If they witness the child’s abilities in play they are to report back and then they will be told to either keep watching the child or terminate.
Usually if the child’s powers aren’t drawing attention or don’t seem dangerous the agents will be put on permanent assignment until something happens. Half of the time they just wait until the child is of age and then call in other government agencies to arrest them. Arresting a child is just bad PR. The other half of the time usually something does happen and that’s just a matter of time. When Operation Barbie gets its eyes on you they are the hands holding your life strings and they will cut it below, the middle, or somewhere near the top.
You won’t find any record of the first operation or any of Barbie’s operations once this became their mission statement but that’s how black ops work in general, they don’t return from a day’s work and turn in an envelope full of receipts.
The first mission of the current Operation Barbie took place in New York City, 1984. Now looking back some Beyond Human scholars, mostly nutters, think the storm itself was because of a Beyond Human.
More than likely it may have been an Elemental, if not just a storm, they aren’t technically Beyond Humans, but if you have strange abilities you get thrown all in a lump group.
These days every historian looking to sale a book is going back throughout history trying to place Beyond Humans. You know like people do with historical figures being gay or having some secret illness.
Hitler had an undersized penis.
During this huge New York City blizzard; which had locked down the whole city, even stopping crime in its tracks, a couple agents had been watching a young Hell’s Kitchen kid for weeks, this storm just made this their new assignment.
The agents both had come from the C.I.A. Recruited by Toly himself. During these times the C.I.A. was Operation Barbie’s main source of recruits. Something that makes the C.I.A. try their best to fuck with Toly’s movements as much as possible.
Their names are not important, not even their code names. Plus, I don’t need even one more name to try and remember right now; so there I admit it, being lazy and this story is kicking my ass as I work on this draft.
These agents of Barbie had been freezing doing their stakeout out of an abandoned bakery. They followed their target as her parents took her to her grandparents, to school, to the park, but on this night they were like most everyone else in the city indoors and trying to find some warmth.
Those stuck outdoors, they were fucked. After this storm passed a reported 87 people would die from expose to the elements.
The Barbie agents were almost relieved when they spotted the top floor of the girl’s apartment building explode in the same blue energy they had seen the girl play with, tossing it from hand to hand in the park and while alone inside her room.
They found out about her when someone looking for some blackmail money contacted the girl’s parents who then contact the government. This is before all the anti-Beyond Human laws were passed and the government said they were just trying to help people and their families cope.
They rushed into the building knowing they needed to make it quick before police and fire rescue arrived. It would take them longer than usual with the weather but if she hadn’t killed herself also in that explosion they would need to take her down before she got any sort of grasp on what had happen. She would be in a haze of confusion, they needed to use that.
And they did.
We the people are part of the nation who destroyed decades of moral coding on how enemy prisoners should be treated. Torture through devices, sexual assaults, and death put a mind set in our soldier’s heads that standing with naked prisoners and photographing and disrespecting dead killed in combat is ok.
It’s way to the dark side of ok.
All in an attempt to paint the enemy as subhuman. It worked too. Look how our soldiers have been treated when captured.
And in the end, for the greater good?
Dented joined Barbie as he was an active member of a sniper unit deeply embedded in Afghanistan. He was found by Toly’s recruiting agent Recross during a mission that had went all tits up and he was the only one left alive from his unit.
Recross is a real piece of work that some say use to be a hired killer that got something on Toly but that might just be a misdirection story Toly planted. He is known for finding a way to get his way and wearing all black suits with bright red gloves.
Dented was every bit the soldier and now every bit the black ops agent. When he was in the military he was never out of uniform. When he was a base soldier he never left the base except when on assignment. He never had nights out with his comrades, he never had hobbies, and he spent every moment becoming a better and better soldier.
Now he looks the part, in fact really too much, of a spook, wearing nothing that calls out that he has any sort of personality. The true joy that he found from his military training was it helped wipe out everything he was and turned him in a soldier, and only a soldier.
Relaxed is when he talks like a soldier and moves in every way like one. Otherwise he talks like a fed and moves like one also. If anything that was his main weakness as an agent. He would never be an infiltrate undercover agent that’s for sure.
He went into the military in the first place because his family were worthless pieces of shit in jail every other five years sentence period shithead group of people.
College seemed to be the ultimate boredom of possibilities after growing up in a place that made Cops look like a proud family portrait.
And staying at home in Detroit screamed a life of working for a local dealer who worked for some white guy in California.
Instead he joined the military where he could shoot people and be taught how to get better and better at it.
When Recross rescued him one of the reasons Dented said yes was the fact that it was a lot more money because the only thing special about special forces isn’t the pay and he wanted to get paid loads of hard cash for his shits.
Dented is what the government wants in a soldier until they get too scary. He also joined Barbie because he was getting close to that point and was fully aware of that.
In his mind the clusterfuck that happen to his sniper unit was probably completely by design and not by any enemy forces.
When you walk these deep lines of black operations of someone trying to kill you that’s on your side of things is never a surprise.
Dented just met his partner Seabreeze outside the apartment which is the base of their Beyond Human child stakeout.
Seabreeze was a former sniper himself who served time in Iraq and Bosnia.
Barbie tends to hire a lot of agents with sniper skills because most of the kills they perform are from long range.
Unlike Dented, Seabreeze doesn’t look the stereotypical part of a soldier or a spook. He looks more like a high school math teacher really, though one you wouldn’t like to spend after school lessons with because he has the look in the eyes of someone who might touch you… there.
He’s short, rather skinny, with eyes that have a milky tint to them, and he does most of the talking for the two because people either think Dented is a cop or a fed; so he stands usually behind Seabreeze like the muscle.
He joined the Army in the middle of college, while in med school, after he finding the lack of intelligence in his professors to be quite maddening.
Recross was there to meet him after his last day in the Army. He left because they weren’t promoting, a promotion stoppage was on, and again he found the people he was supposed to be learning from deficient of wits, tired of taking commands in the field from dumbasses who almost got him killed on a regular basis.
The reason he accepted the pitch from Recross was one-part money. What, it talks, and if your whole live is going to be on the job you want to get paid. The second part of the reason Seabreeze said yes to joining Barbie was that it was about tackling the Beyond Human “problem” and the issues had hit home with him.
In high school before he found himself being called Seabreeze he was a state honor student who was graduating two years early and would be entering college already with two degrees since he had been taking college courses since he was in 8th grade.
One night he was at a high school basketball game. He was covering it and taking pictures for the school paper. You probably know this story since it is recited all the time to show how dangerous uncontrolled Beyond Humans can be.
Near the end of the game as pressure was building on both teams with a point for point match to keep the score tied one of the players fell. He broke his arm but it wasn’t that simple. And the player stood in pain with his broken arm an energy started pouring out from his broken arm and then his eyes and mouth. A few people got out of the gym but he exploded like a small bomb.
Three people caught inside during the panic survived. One went on to become a local cop. Another was institutionalized a year after this having never recovered. And the last one of them would be off to medical school a few months after this.
And any reaction to these type of events are for the greater good.
We the people are part of the nation who watch as their neighbors, friends, and relatives are arrested for being born with special abilities, being a certain way that is totally out of their control, taken to prisons to never be heard from again on the pretense of what they could do.
And in some cases legally killed on sight and all evidence of such cases are instantly considered top secret national security documents.
Our nation has written into our constitution that Beyond Humans don’t have the same rights as everyone else, an enemy combatant just by who they are. No judgment on actions, no judgments on truth, just cold judgment on the breathing person breathing life and continuing to do so.
With Barbie’s it’s about looking at the individual enemy combatant and judging what level of intervention is necessary.
It usually comes down to individuals sending the final order and individuals slipping the switch or pulling the trigger for something they all saw coming. For those who know about Operation Barbie a lot of them think the people working it are bloodthirsty but that isn’t true. Most believe this is the only way of protecting their country. It’s not bloodthirsty but this kind of miss led patriotism is scary and dangerous.
Now as I’ve said Dented and Seabreeze and Operation Barbie’s existence are ultra-top secret and I mean really ultra-top secret, right up there with who poisoned Mary Todd Lincoln, but even if the existence of Operation Barbie was exposed I would bet you dollar to Krispy Kreme donuts sold that the nation would largely say something along the lines of “Bla bla bla greater good.”
Their handlers, and that would be Toly and Recross use the term necessary loses for giving out the final orders. What they mean and the truth are two different things. As is true when it comes to a lot of things.
Even good tasting tofu.
When they say necessary loses what they mean is the team is being pulled from this enemy combatant and being placed on watch for another. The ticks and processes that go to get them from watching to the kill order is only a matter of time no matter who it is. It’s usually just a case of coming up with a good way to taking them out once they science what abilities the child possess and how would be the best way of handling the kill shot because even though Beyond Human’s have no rights within the United States, a dead kid on the news is pretty bad PR in any circumstance.
The truth is necessary loses are also a way for the agents, such as Dented and Seabreeze, to wrap their head around the fact that they are killing children and keep a bit of their sanity intact because no matter what keeps them going they are slowly with each target losing their connection with humanity. Secretly Barbie agents have a six-year job span and then stories are made up for their deaths also.
Dented didn’t want any chance for this one to disappear. Most don’t have anything really big for them to worry about but there are some abilities that are scary even if it’s not turning themselves into living, exploding bombs that can take out whole high school gyms.
Dented is always the lead on missions and Seabreeze is ok with this. Doesn’t hurt his ego any because him in the other hand handling all of the talking and undercover work keeps him doing things that Dented doesn’t really get to order him around about.
They are a good team. This is their eighth stakeout together but as I said before some abilities pull things out of any place of what has gone before. Teleporters are a holy grail of Beyond Humans. Every government wants to catch one and try to use him but outside of India the only ones that has been found so far have been in adolescence and it’s just too risky to try and keep one to use during the chaos years of childhood.
The information gathered says they can’t teleport when within a building. They have viewed him doing it a few times in public and that’s how they were lead to him after a meter maid spotted him doing so in a park while playing hide and seek with friends.
Not only is reporting Beyond Humans profitable, as there is a twenty-thousand-dollar reward for every report that pays off, most street corners have at least one sign in loyal Americans window or on a wall telling you how reporting is your patriotic duty.
This whole assignment has gone textbook besides of the uneasility and extra chatter with superiors when you are dealing with a teleporter, this is what they do, its surveillance and strike if need be.
And as stated before if not, just a matter of time.
The fact that there is a government black operations unit called Barbies whose assignments are to watch underage Beyond Humans and eliminate them if needed really paints the world right now as not in its right mind but a world acting insanely out of control.
Kids aren’t good with control and then there is the parents, they aren’t good with the death of their children.
The parents were taken care of earlier in the day. Parents are usually taken care of in a way that includes the child but with this case the child was seen to be developing more and more control of his abilities.
Their house is burning as he plays a Wii game during recess. He isn’t going out at recess any this week. It’s his turn to stay inside with the teacher’s assistant and feed the class animals and plants and after he does so he is allowed to play Wii games until recess is over.
The order came, this was going to look like a terrorist attack and that’s how it will go down in history. Terrorists have become a good catch all word for black ops cover-ups. So all those crazy people who think every shooting or bombing is some sort of government cover up…well, they are stupid foolish halfwits with too much time and not enough brain power but in some cases it’s true. Every crazy nut of an idea can taste of pecan from time to time.
Before the fire department had even put out the fires Dented and Seabreeze were on a plane to Boston.
A terrorist group out of the Sudan claimed responsibility for the school bombing but the image of all of those dead preschoolers sent Pulpy into swift action on orders from his superiors he took out the whole group, all two thousand in under twenty minutes before they could even raise a voice that they had nothing to do with the death of those kids.
All the things going on that you just don’t want to know about. All the things allowed to happen for the greater good. To be honest the true crime isn’t in the actions but in us not caring and putting fingers in our ears time after time with a chant of for the greater good, for the greater good.
