ITCCS: THE CULT

 

PT-Barnum-edited

Allegedly, David Hannum, a critic of P.T. Barnum, is thought to have once said, “There’s a sucker born every minute”. The world as we know it now is certainly full of suckers. Suckers for get rich quick schemes, fall in love fast schemes….change the world schemes.  “Be the Master of Your Own Destiny”, the showman says!  “Think and Grow-Rich!!  The self-help guru sells you freedom in his latest book that tells you everything you need to know except how to own your shit.  But owning our shit isn’t sexy these days.  Secret power’s to sidestep the shit-owning is where it’s at these days.  Yes, you too can “Manifest Your Destiny”, become an “Ascended Light Being”…but that won’t keep your power on, a roof over your head, or keep you out of jail! ….every minute….. Why are we always seeking the easy way out?   We tell ourselves daily that we are not responsible for our own misery…heck don’t we see that on all the TV shows nowdays?  Finger pointing is what we humans do best!  And when we’re too ashamed to admit that our laziness, or stupidity landed us in hot water, we seek those guru’s that tell us we don’t need all that RESPONSIBILITY garbage.  We are our own God’s after-all, and all we must do is photocopy a bogus document declaring that Canada Is Dissolved and TPTB will faint from fear at the sight of it.  It is so easy everyone should be doing it!!  Simply paint a piece of cardboard with the flag of whatever country you want to substitute for the old one and declare that the rules don’t apply to you.  And by all means, don’t pay your mortgage, your traffic tickets, or your taxes because the world will be a much better place for you and me.  It’s a matter of snipping the apron strings, burning your birth certificate and your problems will go away.  I mean, if you just get educated enough and read a damned Blacks Law Dictionary you will not only know the new language of freedom, you will ooze it from your very pores!  Really, can you willingly remain in ignorance not knowing the difference between a ‘person’ and a ‘human’ BEing??? Simply buy into the philosophy of those who know the difference and you just might be saved.

I’m being sarcastic in this rant, of course, because I see good people following the delusions of a man with serious mental problems.  I see them giving up their homes, their families and their jobs to follow Kevin Annett’s vision and it makes me both sad and angry.  You are believing all this crap made up by a guy who can somehow afford to fly around Europe and the U.S. several times a year but who doesn’t claim an income?  You believe that there really is a person named George Dufort when Kevin just made this person up.  You believe there really is a court in Brussels, when there isn’t.  You really believe the Pope’s and Queens of this world can be arrested by the average Joe because Universal Law and Kevin Annett says so. You are gobbling all this up like a pig given a pail of fresh slop. Why? It’s not because you’re out of options..bankruptsy and welfare are options, albeit unpleasant ones.  Living in your parents basement while you get your shit together is an option.  Hard work and determination are an option. I believe you don’t want to be held responsible for your failed mortgage, your failed job, your failed relationships.  No one wants to admit they’ve screwed up…no one wants to start over.  Lets face it, the option Kevin Annett has given you hurts a hell of a lot less than the personal responsibility one.

Is the Republic Of Kanata just another Jonestown?
Is the Republic Of Kanata just another Jonestown?
I suppose that for the same reasons that people followed Jim Jones to drink the poisoned Kool-Aid, people also flock to Kevin Annett.  When you combine a desperation for belonging, a weak mind, and a lack of healthy skepticism, people will gladly allow someone to take control of their lives.  It is the very nature of a cult to make you believe you have been given the keys to a secret club, full of ‘members only access’ to privelidged information with special jobs to do.  You suddenly realize your life has purpose (FRIENDS YOU ARE PART OF A HISTORIC MOVEMENT!) and you believe that you move within the inner-circle of your guru’s most trusted advisors.  What you don’t know, when you first join the cult, is the dark side of “belonging”.  You are not told the true agenda of your cult leader and so it ends up being a complete surprise when he turns on you. Your membership in the ‘secret club’ is now revoked and YOU are enemy number one. The only purpose you serve now is to be made an example of…a reminder to other cult followers who might dare mutiny. Such has been the case with ex-supporters or associates of Kevin Annett.  Here is the growing list of people who at one time believed in what Kevin Annett was doing…supported him publicly, and who ended up paying the price for it:

  7. William Montour (Mohawk Elder)
  8. Camilla Novelli (Italian organizer of European Tour and translator – 2010)
  9. Dr. Jennifer Wade (Amnesty International Vancouver- Gave video testimony used in so-called Tribunal)
  10. Dr. Don Ortner (Anthropologist – Smithsonian Inst.)
  11. Dr. Doug Owsley (Forensic Anthropologist, Dir. of Forensic Dept. Smithsonian Inst.)
  12. Clint King (GPR operator at Brantford School – Mush Hole dig site 2011)

  26. …..and many more to come….

Many of the people above in this list have come to me to help.  Some have asked that their story be told so that other people will see Kevin Annett for who he really is and avoid the unpleasantness of being shamed and have been lied about publicly by Kevin Annett.  He has attempted to ‘slut shame’ them into silence for fear that they may reveal the truth about him to his other followers.  In recent months, he has had others dedicate websites and twitter pages aimed at defaming his biggest supporters.  He has made allegations about them without providing the proof and has advised others to not have anything to do with them.  This is a mind control technique used by every cult and cult leader in history (that includes the religious ones).  Ironically, Kevin Annett is in Las Vegas (if he hasn’t done one of his famous no-shows) speaking at a ‘Mind Control’ conference called the Super Soldier Summit: III. People, I don’t expect that you will wise up until you have experienced what the list of people above has experienced…. you’ll continue to sip the Kool-Aid willingly until everything you have is gone, you’ve given him thousands of dollars that should have gone to feed your kids, or you make the mistake of saying….”um, Kevin what about Vivian Cunningham?”…. For me it’s easy… I started out as the enemy so my role will never change… for you you’ll have to deal with whatever the Kevin Annett Ministry of Lies comes up with to publicly damage your reputation.  Unfortunately, you’ll have to take some personal responsibility for that.   Please read this excellent excerpt of info from Cult Watch on How Cults Work: Mind Control is a suite of psychological techniques that cult leaders attempt to control their members with. Cultwatch does not consider Mind Control to be some magical device which can take away peoples’ free will. In other words it does not turn people into some sort of remote control robot. Rather we see Mind Control as a dishonest influence placed covertly on cult members by the cult. So instead of Mind Control being some sort of irresistible force like the aliens in the movies that take over peoples minds, rather it is more like a gun. The cult leader points the Mind Control “gun” at a member and says, “if you leave us then you will lose all of your friends and family”, “if you don’t conform then you will go to Hell”, “if you don’t give us money then you will fail in business”. We have broken Mind Control up into a series of techniques that the cults use. Together these techniques make up Mind Control. A cult needs to recruit and operate using deception. Why? Because if people knew their true practices and beliefs beforehand then they would not join. A cult needs to hide the truth from you until they think you are ready to accept it. For example, imagine if the leader of Heavens Gate cult was open and honest about the group and had said to new recruits, “Join us, wear strange clothes, get castrated and then drink poison!” he would not have had many takers.   A cult will have a slick well-rehearsed Public Relations front which hides what the group is really like. You will hear how they help the poor, or support research, or peace, or the environment. They will tell you how happy you will be in their group (and everyone in the cult will always seem very happy and enthusiastic, mainly because they have been told to act happy and will get in trouble if they don’t). But you will not be told what life is really like in the group, nor what they really believe. These things will be introduced to you slowly, one at a time, so you will not notice the gradual change, until eventually you are practicing and believing things which at the start would have caused you to run a mile. A normal religious organization would not have any trouble with you moving to another similar organization as long as you stayed in that same religion. Because it is the belief system that matters, not membership in an organization. For example if you were a Christian then you could move from one church to another and still be a Christian. However cult leaders will tell you can only be “saved” (or can only be successful) in their organization alone. No other organization has the truth, all others miss the mark. So it is not the belief system that decides your future, but it the belief system AND your membership with that particular group.   The cult leaders need to make you believe that there is no where else you can go and still be saved, and if you ever leave the “one true church” then you are going to hell. This is a fear based control mechanism designed to keep you in the cult. It also gives the cult leaders tremendous power over you. If you really believe that leaving the group equals leaving God (or means you are leaving your only chance to succeed in life), then you will obey the cult leaders even when you disagree with them instead of risking being kicked out of the group. Exclusivism is used as a threat, it controls your behavior through fear. Be very suspicious of any group that claims to be better than all the others. A religious group may say that other groups following the same religion are OK, but they are the ones who have a better grasp of the truth and they are superior to the rest. This is often just a subtle version of exclusivism. This is one of the practices that cults are often very deceptive about. For example, first off they may give you the impression that they think you are a true Christian, Buddhist or Muslim and it’s not until later that their true position is revealed. Fear_&_Intimidation Cult leadership is feared. To disagree with leadership is the same as disagreeing with God. The cult leaders will claim to have direct authority from God to control almost all aspects of your life. If the cult is not a religious group then questioning the leaders or program will still be seen as a sign of rebellion and stupidity. Guilt, Character Assassination and Breaking Sessions. Guilt will be used to control you. Maybe the reason you’re not making money is because you’re not “with the programme”. Maybe the reason you’re not able to convert new recruits is because “your heart is prideful and full of sin”. It could never be that the programme isn’t working, or those new recruits have valid reasons for not joining. It’s always your fault, you are always wrong, and so you must try harder! You will also be made to feel very guilty for disobeying any of the cult’s written or unwritten rules. Character Assassination is used to help create the guilt in you. Character Assassination is a type of false reasoning used by people and groups who have no real arguments. The technical name for Character Assassination is “The Ad hominem Fallacy”. This is how it works. Imagine if you will a conversation between two men, Ford and Arthur… “One plus one equals three”, says Ford. “No I don’t think so. You see when I have one thing, and I have another thing, then I have two things not three”, replies Arthur. “I see your point, but what you must realize is that one plus one when calculated in relation to this complex number domain, which I just invented, and then squared by the sum of the ninth tangent in the sequence of the Fibonacci series results in three!”, stated Ford triumphantly. Ok, Ford is wrong, but that is not the point. The point is that Ford tried to answer Arthur’s reasoning with more reasoning of his own. This is the healthy way people and groups debate subjects. Now lets see what would have happened if Ford had used Character Assassination… “Arthur I have been a mathematician longer than you. How dare you disagree with me! You are obviously a very smug and prideful person. I think you are disagreeing with me because you are jealous of me, and to be honest with you Arthur your rebellion has really hurt me and a lot of other people too”, stated Ford his face intimidatingly close to Arthur’s. You see Ford didn’t answer Arthur’s argument, instead he attacked his character. If you are not aware of how Character Assassination works then it is a powerful way to exert control over you. Breaking sessions are when one, two or more cult members and leaders attack the character of another person, sometimes for hours on end. Some cults will not stop these sessions until their victim is crying uncontrollably. Love_Bombing_&_Relationship_Control Cults know that if they can control your relationships then they can control you. Whether we like it or not we are all profoundly affected by those around us. When you first go to a cult they will practice “love bombing”, where they arrange instant friends for you. It will seem wonderful, how could such a loving group be wrong! But you soon learn that if you ever disagree with them, or ever leave the cult then you will lose all your new “friends”. This unspoken threat influences your actions in the cult. Things that normally would have made you complain will pass by silently because you don’t want to be ostracized. Like in an unhealthy relationship love is turned on and off to control. Cults also try to cut you off from your friends and family because they hate others being able to influence you. A mind control cult will seek to manoeuvre your life so as to maximize your contact with cult members and minimize your contact with people outside the group, especially those who oppose your involvement. Those who control the information control the person. In a mind control cult any information from outside the cult is considered evil, especially if it is opposing the cult. Members are told not to read it or believe it. Only information supplied by the cult is true. One cult labels any information against it as “persecution” or “spiritual pornography”, another cult calls it “apostate literature” and will expel you from the group if you are caught with it. Cults train their members to instantly destroy any critical information given to them, and to not even entertain the thought that the information could be true. Common sense tells us that a person who does not consider all information may make an unbalanced decision. Filtering the information available or trying to discredit it not on the basis of how true it is, but rather on the basis of how it supports the party line, is a common control method used throughout history. In a mind control cult like in Nazi Germany or Communist Russia you must be careful of what you say and do; “The walls have ears”. Everyone is encouraged to watch out for “struggling” brothers and sisters and report what they see to leadership. Often information given in deepest confidence is automatically reported to leadership. Cult leaders will then use this information to convince their members that they have a supernatural link, the trusting member does not suspect the very natural mechanism behind the supernatural revelations they are given.   People in a mind control cult will also hide their true thoughts and feelings, and instead wear a mask which presents them as a perfect cult member. This mask is a defense against being reported to leadership and being punished for not measuring up (cult members never feel like they measure up to the cult’s ideals, and yet often believe the other members around them do, when in reality the others feel the same as them). Hence cult members are trained not only to deceive outsiders, but also to deceive their fellow cult members. Rarely can close friendships form in cults, and if they do the cult’s leaders may see them as a threat and move those people away from each other. Nothing is allowed that can be more powerful than the cult members’ allegiance to the group and it’s leaders.   Mind control cults keep their members so busy with meetings and activities that they become too busy and too tired to think about their involvement. Time control also helps the cult keep their members immersed in the manufactured cult environment. And time control helps keep cult members away from friends and family.   Read More Here

  1. Thank you Heather.
    Your article shows that you very much have your finger on the pulse as regards Kevin Annett.
    If a few other people were honest enough to stand up and admit it,they too have been seriously taken in by the snake oil salesman that is indeed Kevin Annett.
    For example the recently convicted leader of the Canadian ITCCS Mr Steve Finney.
    http://www.therecord.com/news-story/4548985-kitchener-freeman-member-free-after-being-acquitted-of-charges-of-assaulting-police/
    While this may look like a ‘victory’ for Finney the opposite is the case when we see that he is not only a convicted criminal now he also had to enter into an agreement with the Prosecution by admitting to other driving offences in order for the other driving offences to be taken into consideration.
    The ITTCS has completely failed in this case and that is why we have heard nothing about it from Kevin Annett.
    Here is a man who total bought into Kevin Annett and his fake ITCCS ‘court’ in Brussels as is evident by the outcome of his case.
    Here is how much he believed in Annett and his dreamworld Republic of Kanata.

    Here is how he was portrayed by Kevin Annett.
    http://itccs.org/2013/10/01/political-persecution-of-canadian-activist-steve-finney-in-ontario-court-to-be-investigated-by-international-human-rights-observers-finney-may-be-named-as-a-prisoner-of-conscience-and-political-pris/
    And what about David Compan in the UK?
    What have we heard about him since he was heralded as a hero by Annett in much the same manner as Finney ?
    We have heard nothing.
    And what about Carlo Freschi and Domingo Santori?
    http://itccs.org/2014/04/03/notification-from-the-sheriffs-office-of-the-rome-branch-of-the-international-common-law-court-of-justice-iclcj/
    Should these men not be applauded and treated as heroes,having dared to attempt to arrest the Queen of England in Rome at a time when Kevin Annett himself is stating clearly that he has a ‘Jesuit hit squad’ after him and lives in fear of being kidnapped,even in a quiet country like Ireland?
    Would these mens lives not have been at risk too?
    Why have we heard nothing about them from Annett or nothing from them themselves since that historical event,the first ever attempt to arrest the Queen of England?
    Could it be that like George Dufort,Jeramiah Jourdain,Mary Hennessy and Fr Ciaran Ui Niall they are just figments of Kevin Annetts very over active imagination?
    Thank you for your comprehensive list of Kevin Annetts victims.It is not difficult to imagine just how many more there are out there who bought into Kevin Annetts lies and believed him and who are indeed terrified of facing the same fate as his much publicized victims on your list.But we can clearly see that the tables are turning on Annett and rightly so.
    It’s very easy to see the truth that is out there now about Annett,a truth published in detail by the likes of yourself and Greg Renouf and it’s up to people to make up their own minds.
    It is wonderful that you have dedicated your life to this and to being there to help the victims of Kevin Annett and you do it without a PayPal donate button unlike Kevin Annett and his sidekicks like Joshua Lemmens,Rhianne Baines and Rick Hidalgo.
    Thank you.

  2. Excellent article Heather – and very helpful to point out the mind control issues with believing in people like Annett.

    You’ve hit the nail on the head with this: “When you combine a desperation for belonging, a weak mind, and a lack of healthy skepticism, people will gladly allow someone to take control of their lives. It is the very nature of a cult to make you believe you have been given the keys to a secret club, full of ‘members only access’ to privelidged information with special jobs to do. You suddenly realize your life has purpose (FRIENDS YOU ARE PART OF A HISTORIC MOVEMENT!) and you believe that you move within the inner-circle of your guru’s most trusted advisors.”

    Ironic, isn’t it?
    The people who follow Annett, who believe they really know what’s going on underneath everything are the most gullible of all. They hand over what little capacity for discrimination they have to a fantasist/sociopath and then uncritically believe everything he tells them, no matter how ridiculous.

    And speaking of made up people (like George Dufort), we haven’t had any updates on poor old Vivian Cunningham. He must be the shyest person in the world: no facebook, no phone number, no address, no family……. Where’s Viv, Kevin???? Is he helping you with your important court work in Brussels?

    Can’t wait till July when Kevin really ramps up the “activism” by arresting the Queen! Should be a few lols around then.

  3. You guys keep posting things like this and that’s where you can get people to start listening. I have an issue with those 2 situations and a post went out about what happened, but no follow up. Very concerning and always in the back of my head. I don’t think you are a disinfo agent, clearly some people have been hurt by actions whether intentional or unintentional I do not know, but I won’t follow anyone blindly, hence why me and others are here on the net checking things out. You will have a problem with those who are in the ‘love and lighter’s” crowd as I call them. They have hung onto a dream of not being financially responsible from Drake the Fake to NESARA to I don’t know, but I see them always focused on debt relief. Anyways, I’ve never put faith in anyone so I’m able to discern pretty well. I won’t be talking negatively about anyone ….just want to you know that many of us have eyes to see and ears to hear.
