Circle One: The Jan Paul Beahm Story, Part II

Scientology, the CIA and MK Ultra

Kubark Counter-Intelligence Interrogation

Obscurantist - Alice in Wonderland

The aim of the Alice in Wonderland or confusion technique is to confound the expectations and conditioned reactions of the interrogatee. He is accustomed to a world that makes some sense, at least to him: a world of continuity and logic, a predictable world. He clings to this world to reinforce his identity and powers of resistance.

The confusion technique is designed not only to obliterate the familiar but to replace it with the weird. Although this method can be employed by a single interrogator, it is better adapted to use by two or three. When the subject enters the room, the first interrogator asks a doubletalk question — one which seems straightforward but is essentially nonsensical. Whether the interrogatee tries to answer or not, the second interrogator follows up (interrupting any attempted response) with a wholly unrelated and equally illogical query. Sometimes two or more questions are asked simultaneously. Pitch, tone, and volume of the interrogators’ voices are unrelated to the import of the questions. No pattern of questions and answers is permitted to develop, nor do the questions themselves relate logically to each other. In this strange atmosphere the subject finds that the pattern of speech and thought which he has learned to consider normal have been replaced by an eerie meaninglessness. The interrogatee may start laughing or refuse to take the situation seriously. But as the process continues, day after day if necessary, the subject begins to try to make sense of the situation, which becomes mentally intolerable. Now he is likely to make significant admissions, or even to pour out his story, just to stop the flow of babble which assails him. This technique may be especially effective with the orderly, obstinate type. - CIA's KUBARK Counterintelligence Interrogation Manual, Polygraph Section

The polygraph can be used for purposes other than the evaluation of veracity. For example, it may be used as an adjunct in testing the range of languages spoken by an interrogatee or his sophistication in intelligence matters, for rapid screening to determine broad areas of knowledgeability, and as an aid in the psychological assessment of sources. Its primary function in a counterintelligence interrogation, however, is to provide a further means of testing for deception or withholding.

Drew Blood -

Drew Blood was one of many disenfranchised, demoralized youths that found a common voice in the Southern California punk rock community in the mid to late 70’s. He had struggled with being openly gay even as a young boy in a world that was very stigmatizing toward him. He was eventually drawn into the seedy world of hustling and became enamored with glam rock then punk rock as it emerged in the local DIY spirit of the day. He was a front man for several bands and began writing poetry as well as song lyrics. He was close friends and band mate with Donnie Rose, who had been in a relationship with Darby Crash (Jan Paul Beahm) of the Germs. He roamed around So-Cal gaining the experiences he would write vividly about and started making little punk rock broadsides that accompanied his bands fliers for shows. The death of Darby by overdose and the incarceration for life of his friend Regi Mentle (Reginald Alsin) for murder deeply affected Drew and exacerbated his tendency toward depression. His writing became a tool to deal with the grief and loss that was occurring all around him. He used his writing more and more to cope with life.

Reginald Alsin (aka Regi Mentle) - Gay friend of Jan Paul Beahm, Convicted Murderer, Sentenced to Life
Regi Mentle was a key figure in the early California
punk scene in both San Francisco, as well as Los Angeles. Most people familiar
with the Germs would recognize him from his quotes & picture in the Germs
book "Lexicon Devil." A close friend of Darby Crash, Regi & his openly gay
lifestyle were the basis for many early Germs songs.

Regi was an original member of the Germs inner circle, (circle one)
& was considered an honorary Germ by Darby & the others. Regi lived
with Darby & Donnie in Darby's bedroom at his mom's house and was the person
who gave Pat Smear his Germs burn. The Germs song "Ritchie Dagger's Crime"
was written about Regi & his homemade dagger tattoo. Regi was also a roadie
for the Germs, VS, Social Distortion, & other bands.

In 1981, Regi was attacked by a man wielding a knife, and unfortunately, he killed the man.
He was 21 years old. His original sentence was 16 years to life, with the possibility of parole.
From all accounts,

Tony the Hustler - Gay male prostistute. Room mate of Paul Beahm in Hollywood near Grauhman's Chinese Theater.

University High School

I've brought this up numerous times in conversation, but never put it in writing so that it may be discussed.

I've read small bits here and there about IPS, Innovative Program School, which was a short-lived (?) satellite school run on the University High School campus in Santa Monica, CA. It was described in a way that makes me think heavily study-tech - this does not surprise me now, as it was run by Fred Holtby, who is (or was) a very active Scientologist: ... oltby.html

By the few accounts I've read, it was an utter failure, with kids grading themselves on classes they themselves created, and cells of heavy drug use. The most information I've heard from it was in "Lexicon Devil: The Fast Times & Short Life Of Darby Crash," where some pretty outrageous claims were written. I have the book if anyone wants more details.

Notable to me, was this is where Circle One was formed (only makes sense if you are a Germs fan,) and also where Darby decided to go out of his way to control other people. In fact, his "heroes" were people like Stalin, Mussolini, and yes, our boy L. Ron Hubbard. Several prominent punk players in early LA history passed through or near IPS. The most famous to date is probably Pat Smear, who played with Nirvana, and then Foo Fighters.

He recalls taking classes in Rhetoric, and loved the idea of word-clearing. An old page floating around (caution: eye-burning site design) has some info, as well as the lyrics to Lexicon Devil, a piece written by Darby mixing the ideas of word-clearing and people-control:

So, at the end of a rambling post, I ask, can someone pass this up to OCMB or similar? I'd love to hear the history of IPS, as well as know more
