Frances Farmer & America's Psychiatric Gulag

February 7, 2013


A famous actress, Frances Farmer (1913-1970) was lobotomized by 
Hollywood Jews because she wouldn't join their Communist plot, according to the late Eustace Mullins. Her tragic fate suggests that psychiatry plays an important role in the Illuminati Jewish plan for world tyranny.  

The incarceration of dissidents in mental hospitals was common in the USSR. Everyone should read this horrifying, little known story of an American patriot and martyr.

Shortly after the Crash of 1929, when many gentiles had been impoverished by Jewish money manipulation, the psychiatrists began to show their hands as the new masters.

 In May, 1930, an International Congress on Mental Hygiene was held in Washington, D.C. Four thousand psychiatrists from 53 countries were welcomed by the President of the United States, Herbert Hoover. The new masters drafted a charter stating that they alone had the knowledge to "understand and control human behavior... Psychiatry must now decide what is to be the immediate future of the human race."

The new pronouncement also boasted that "Psychiatrists alone possess the superior intelligence and knowledge to alter materially and permanently human behaviors." Many of the bureaucrats got the message, and promptly signed up for lengthy series of "analysis". 

Soon afterwards, a number of Communist cells were established in the government bureaus, chief among them the Harold Ware cell. Ware was merely the office boy for Felix Frankfurter, left, who masterminded this Communist group, placing Communist agents high in the official levels of every government department in Washington.

One of the principal speakers at the Washington Congress of Psychiatrists was Dr. Donald A. Nicholson, a psychiatrist from Seattle who was the president of the Washington State Medical Assn. He committed thousands of Americans to mental hospitals, all of them on his unsupported testimony that they were "insane". Few of them ever saw freedom again. 


His most famous victim was the great Hollywood actress Frances Farmer.

Frances who? A curtain of silence has been rung down on one of America's greatest talents. When she flashed across the Hollywood screen, she became known as "the American Garbo". Today her movies are never shown on television or in the theatres. Those Hollywood figures who knew her refuse to mention her name. They are terrified that they, too, might have to endure the sufferings visited on her. What happened to Frances Farmer? A reporter spent five years investigating her story, which he recently published, Shadowland [by William Arnold, 1978) 

As a beautiful young woman in Seattle, Washington, Frances Farmer, was known as a brilliant, outspoken person. She won a newspaper essay contest for a free trip to Russia. Despite warnings from her mother and her friends, she insisted on taking the trip. When she returned [in 1935], the reporters tried to get her either to praise or condemn the Communist experiment, but she replied, quite honestly, that in such a brief trip she had not seen enough to make a decision. 

The Communists decided that this meant she was really sympathetic; but did not want to declare herself. Soon afterwards, she was "discovered" by talent scouts, and went to Hollywood. Her radiant beauty proved to be very photogenic, and her movies were an immediate sensation. Because of her famous trip to Russia, she was supposed to be a rabid Communist sympathizer, although she had said or done nothing to support such a theory. 

The large community of Jewish Communists in Hollywood, who completely controlled the making and distribution of movies, entertained her and raved about her beauty. She was then asked to become a Communist courier. She indignantly refused, being an extremely proud and intelligent White girl who had no interest in Communism. The Hollywood Jews were infuriated and frightened by Frances Farmer's refusal. They had supposed she was one of them, and had taken her into their confidence. 

Now she knew the identity of every prominent Communist in Hollywood. At a secret conference, they resolved that she must be disposed of. An "accident" to such  prominent star would be too risky. The [Illuminati] Jews decided that "psychoanalysis" was the answer to their dilemma. She would be railroaded to an insane asylum. Any accusations she might make would then be ignored.

At the very height of her fame, while everyone was predicting she would win an Academy Award, Frances Farmer was invited to a party at the home of a Jewish producer. She was given a drug during this party.

When she drove away, she was soon stopped by a policeman, who claimed she had committed a minor traffic violation. Instead of giving her a ticket, he immediately took her before a judge, although it was late at night. The judge claimed that she was "confused", and in what could only have been a prearranged plan, he committed her to a mental asylum. Reporters made a complete reversal of their usual practice when a movie star gets into trouble. Instead of headlining Frances Farmer's predicament, they were told not to
write about it! From that day on, her name was rarely mentioned in the press.


For six years, [beginning in 1942] Frances Farmer was forced to endure horrors which, even without the drugs and shock Treatments which she was given on a daily basis, would have destroyed anyone's mind. After a few days in a California mental hospital, she was transferred to a state mental hospital, Steilacoom, near Seattle, Washington, ostensibly so that her mother could visit her, but actually to remove her from any contact with anyone in Hollywood.

 Many years later, a reporter, William Arnold, spent five years tracing the record of Frances Farmer during her years in Steilacoom. He discovered that the orderlies at Steilacoom were mostly convict trusties from McNeill Island Penitentiary on the other side of Puget Sound. He also discovered that Steilacoom was known as "the brothel of Ft. Lewis". 

Each evening, drunken soldiers from Ft. Lewis paid the convicts five dollars each and were admitted to certain wards. Here the convicts held down the women chosen by the soldiers, who then took their will. Arnold found inmates who could recall seeing Frances Farmer, easily the most beautiful and desirable of the inmates, being held down by the convicts while she was being gang-raped by the drunken soldiers. No one ever claimed that such horrors went on in the German concentration camps as were nightly enacted at Steilacoom.

To nullify any complaints from Frances Farmer, the orderlies regularly gave her bad reports, claiming that he was "uncooperative". Since she was being forcibly held down during these outrages, her cooperation her lack of it does not seem to have presented any problem, but the Jewish doctors were eager to get this diagnosis. The entry of "uncooperative" by the name of any patient in a mental institution means that any and every possible form of drugs, "treatment" and other punishment is necessary. 

Frances Farmer was given massive doses of electric shock treatment every week. She was forced to endure medieval form of hydrotherapy by which she was thrown into a tub of ice water for periods of six to eight hours. During the agony of these ordeals, she chewed her lips to pieces. 

After four months of "treatment", her spirit had been broken. She appeared before the psychiatrists and agreed to "cooperate". A careful Dr. Nicholson
immediately held a press conference to display his latest triumph. In a typical example of Communist self criticism" and "confession", Frances Farmer gave her performance. "I was rude and disrespectful," she told the reporters. "I was very, very sick."

"I think this case demonstrates how successfully antisocial behavior can be modified," stated Dr. Nicholson.

"Three months ago, this woman was mentally unresponsive, and today she is being returned to her family completely cured. This marks a significant victory for the mental hygiene movement in Washington."

Because of her fame as a movie star, Frances Farmer was chosen to be publicly exhibited as an example of the triumph of Freudian theories. 


The power of the psychiatrists had mushroomed during the war, as psychiatrists were stationed with each unit, just as Communists commissars were placed in each combat unit of the Red Army to identify and arrest any dissenters. As the sole victors of World War II, the [Communist] Jews rapidly extended the influence of psychotherapy over every aspect of American life. 

In 1946, Harry Truman signed the National Mental Health Act, which brought "mental health" organizations into almost very community in America. These organizations quickly became local outposts of the State of Israel, seeking out and punishing those Americans who were afflicted with "the running sores of anti-Semitism", as the Jewish Gestapo group, the Anti-Defamation League, characterized anyone who criticized the subversion of the American government by the State of Israel.

No sooner had Dr. Nicholson released Frances Farmer than he received anxious messages. The news that their victim was no longer imprisoned terrified the Hollywood Communists. Dr. Nicholson was instructed to seize her and return her to Steilacoom. Her freedom had lasted less than two weeks. She was now to endure six years of concentrated treatment intended for only one purpose: To destroy her mind so that she would never be able to identify the Hollywood Communists. She was immediately put back on
the weekly schedule of shock treatments. 

Besides enduring the weekly shock treatments, Frances Farmer, who had been consigned back to Steilacoom at a court hearing at which she was not even present, now became the victim of a new operation, the CIA
LSD experiments. For more than a year, Frances Farmer received daily doses of LSD, as well as the weekly shock treatments.


Despite this cruel regimen, her tormentors were dismayed to find that her brain had not been destroyed. There remained one final horror for her, a treatment which was guaranteed to destroy the brain of anyone. This was prefrontal lobotomy, which in every case had totally destroyed the rational capacity of its victims. A Portuguese doctor, Edgar Muniz, developed this technique for "curing mental illness" in 1935. For this contribution to human well-being, he received the Nobel Prize in 1949.

 Hundreds of thousands of lobotomies were performed in Europe and the United States. Dr. Walter Freeman, head of The Dept. of Neurology at Georgetown University, became an enthusiastic advocate of prefrontal lobotomy after studying with Muniz. He refined Muniz' technique by inserting an ice-pick type of instrument under the eyelid into the brain, and severing the nerve from the cortex to the thalamus which directed rational thought. 

This turned the human victim into a vegetable. Presto! No more anger, no more protest. Instead, there was meek compliance with any order. Deciding it might be more prudent to practice his technique away from Washington, Dr. Freeman went to Spencer State Hospital at Spencer, W. Va. The
Jewish doctors at this institution lined up thirty-five women patients, and in a brilliant display of virtuosity, he lobotomized them one after the other.

Learning of this triumph, the CIA asked him to go to Steilacoom to lobotomize Frances Farmer. As a cover, he first lobotomized twelve other women patients. Frances Farmer was then brought in, and told that the doctor wished to examine her. To attendants seized her by the arms, and Dr. Freeman, left, quickly inserted the ice pick into her brain. Two seconds later, Frances Farmer had become a human vegetable, her memory destroyed and her brain barely functioning, she was no longer a threat to the Hollywood
Communist conspirators.

A few months later, satisfied that her memory was gone, the CIA authorized Dr. Nicholson to release Frances Farmer. Her years of horror were over. On March 23, 1950, she left Steilacoom. She was only thirty-six years old. 

Despite her ordeal, some traces of her former beauty remained, but when she tried to resume her acting career, she found she could not remember lines or follow directions. She died alone and in poverty in Indianapolis a few years later. Yet, even today, those who ordered her torture and destruction still fear the mention of her name. Not only does the blackout of her films remain in effect, but William Arnold found no one in Hollywood willing to be quoted about her fate.

We know the fate of Frank Olson and Frances Farmer only because those dedicated to their memories spent years fighting to uncover their tragic stories. We do not know the fate of many thousands of other victims of the Jewish pseudo-science of psychotherapy, because no one mourns them or remembers their names. They, too, were done to death by drug overdoses, shock treatments, or the Freeman ice-pick treatment. We must act at once to save thousands of other potential victims from the Jewish terrorists. We
must outlaw electric shock treatments as humane nations have done; we must outlaw the practice of pseudo-therapy such as psychoanalysis, ice-pick in the brain, and indiscriminate use of LSD and other drugs in the mental institutions. 

Unless we act quickly, thousands more will die, the victims of Jewish sadism and Freud's poisonous legacy. This [Cabalist] Jew converted the shameless charlatanism of a few eighteenth-century necromancers into a worldwide system for "treating the mentally ill", solely because of his anti-gentilism and his hatred of Christ. Freud gave the [Cabalist] Jews their most powerful weapon against us. We must stop them now.

Comments for "Frances Farmer & America's Psychiatric Gulag"

Analytick said (February 17, 2013):

Mr. Mullins essentially was a decent writer and enjoyable to read. Unfortunately, to make a point, he would, more often than not, leave out facts and (2) add data to support whatever hypotheses he had at the time. This Frances Farmer piece is, indeed, a perfect example of EM's thought paradigms.

What Mullins wrote correctly here was: (1) That Frances Farmer did visit the USSR (this was the key that opened her acting door); (2) She was beautiful; (3) She laboured in both Hollywood and NY (two centers of Zionistic ant hills); and (3) She was subjected to the insanity of Freud's impaired mindset. Despite the Hollywood sensationalism of the 1920s, back in the 1930s most women were mothers and wives. They did not run around with the Hollywood and NYC film gangs.

Lastly, Mullins did some good in his life. It's appropriate that Mullins mentioned the results of the 1929 Wall Street induced crash, dual loyalty of red cells and the complete farce of the lobotomy experimentation. It's amazing those responsible never were incarcerated. Seems our Western civilization has evolved from Freudian mental health glorification to neocon WMD's never-ending wars.

I am a bit confused: The article on Frances Farmer says ...

"Frances Farmer had become a human vegetable, her memory destroyed and her brain barely functioning, she was no longer a threat to the Hollywood Communist conspirators.

A few months later, satisfied that her memory was gone, the CIA authorized Dr. Nicholson to release Frances Farmer. Her years of horror were over. On March 23, 1950, she left Steilacoom. She was only thirty-six years old.

But in a TV program from 1958

( she doesn’t sound like a “vegetable”, though she may have been “mind programmed”.

For obvious reasons, she is playing along with the whitewashing of the institutions and people who destroyed her health and career, but is she really a brain-dead zombie? IMDb and Wikipedia says she died of cancer in 1970 (not “a few years later”).

Quite a mystery, with elements enough for several Ph.D. theses!

Debra said (February 9, 2013):

Jessica Lange wasn’t afraid to play Francis Farmer in the movie titled “Francis” in 1982. The NY Times ‘82 article provided some details about Ms. Farmer’s life that coincides with Mullins’ article and comments posted here. All of which may be with some truth.

The NY Times article:-

But, when providing facts about a person’s life, particularly after
the fact, it is often too easy to want to jump to conclusions. Francis must have had a lot of enemies, for whatever reason. For that we can be sure. There is no mention of anyone fighting for her. Which is rather odd. Even if she was a ‘bitch’, no-one deserves to be treated like that. Francis is the result of something more serious than Communism. She may have threatened to tell ‘something’ which people in high-places did not want known. I suspect whatever that was, was the
reason for her demise which included the torture she endured.

By 2013, that ‘something’ has been revealed in “Eyes Wide Shut”, but then if it was told it would have had a markedly different effect than today, i.e. public outrage with inquiry.

Public outrage and inquiry seems to be a thing of the past. Soon to be obsolete it seems.

Charlie said (February 9, 2013):

There was more to the Frances story. She was an up and coming power personality whose fame gave her unprecedented access to media as a social reformer. the entire establishment was terrified of her and hated her as a result.

Thanks Charlie

Why do i think of Jean Seberg?

Michael said (February 8, 2013):

In light of what Dan and David said the Mullins story was not objectively complete. What happens to people is tied into their own beliefs and attitudes in some way, and should be shown if possible.

- The victimization of an individual may explain how the same principles are at work in the victimization of a nation, as might be seen in our various countries today. - Along this same line of thinking, is it possible that the problems inherent in western society and its christian church may be tied into the acceptance of the Jewish God?

Dear Michael-

Especially if the Jewish God is Lucifer. I don;t think Dan or David have proven they have the definitive truth. They may be performing a disservice by echoing the spin of the people who persecuted FF.

A good friend had a job at the federal prison for the criminally insane at Chester, Ill. He was appalled at the conditions. Many of the orderlies, he said were crazier than the inmates and so were the many of the psychiatrists.

Two orderlies locked him in a room with 2 sex crazed women and they nearly raped him, while they looked on through the window laughing at him. That was one month into the job and he went straight out and quit. He made some complaints to the "right people" but nothing was done.

These facilities do little but drug the inmates, often they leave in worse condition than when they entered.

A personal note: My mother was 9 years old when her mother went missing. Her father (who had a reputation as a sleazy lawyer) told her that her mother was dead and she was then put her into a Catholic boarding school. (and yes, those places are abusive towards the children).

9 years later my mother was speaking to a cousin, which said that her mother was in a mental institution. My mother was very surprised and the cousin asked her why she didn't know that?

She found her mother and in just weeks she had her mother released. She was not crazy. Her father (BTW a Jew and Nazi collaborator) had her mother institutionalized so he could get a divorce and and marry his maid whom he impregnated.

Francis Farmer was not the first conveniently put away, nor the last.

Barney said (February 8, 2013):

Just a couple of years ago I had a neighbour who received electric shock treatment during a temporary bout of depression resulting from the premature death of his wife.

The "treatment" turned him into a zombie, and just a few weeks later, he hanged himself.

He was a military veteran in his 40s or early 50s, physically fit, certainly not psychotic and showing no signs of mental illness prior to the ECT ("Electro-Convulsive Therapy"). He was grieving, but that was to be expected.

We continually hear that depression is an illness that must be treated, when in most cases the truth is that people are merely suffering natural anguish over things they can't control.

There are those who say "Freud" should really be spelled "Fraud", and I'm inclined to agree.

David said (February 8, 2013):

I have little doubt about most of what has been presented here.

I do, however, think that the portrait of this “innocent” girl has a serious omission.

Francis Farmer’s essay that won her the trip to Russia was entitled "God Dies". It was an attempt to “reconcile” the experience of a chaotic world and a loving God who seemingly never does anything about it.

She was influenced heavily by Nietzsche who, as you know stated “God is dead”.

Also missing was that farmer had multiple arrests prior to her being seen by the judge who committed her.

Peter said (February 8, 2013):

I consider myself quite well informed and i have never heard of this tragic woman.

Hollywood can be very very paranoid sometimes and it is possible to discern hidden truth in what they chose to disdain. Look what fabulous
efforts have been made to suppress the movie "Cloud Atlas" for example which hasn't even opened here in the UK yet.

Or how it was decided that the Mel Gibson film "how I spent my summer vacation" should be forcebombed in the UK the only showing was 0030
hrs on Sunday morning at my local cinema.
That what you get for upsetting Hollywood's Jewish moguls.

Keep shining a light few others do.

Jim said (February 8, 2013):

I've only recently become acquainted with the story of Francis Farmer after reading a biography on Kurt Cobain, singer for the grunge band Nirvana. He identified with the plight of Francis Farmer and named his daughter after her.

The torment Miss Farmer endured is disturbing. One can hope that she is in the good graces of God and living happily in her afterlife.

Dan said (February 8, 2013):

It's hard to tell how much Mullins got right. He's left out a lot of the story. Frances Farmer's fortunes began to change when she had an affair with Broadway playwright Clifford Odets. Frances really wanted to be stage actress, not Hollywood. Odets and stage director Harold Clurman gave her a chance to do that with staring roles in New York City's Group Theatre

But Odets was married and wouldn't divorce his wife, and dumped Frances. Because of this, Frances was shut out of the Group. She returned to Hollywood and continued to get lead movie roles because she got good box office. She became increasingly temperamental. She'd married actor Lief Erickson but they divorced in 1942. Later that year she was stopped by highway patrol in Santa Monica for driving with her high beams on in violation of wartime 'blackout'. She was verbally abusive so the cops charged her with intoxication and held her in jail overnight.

She was fined $500 and paid half to be released, but was later arrested for failing pay the other half. She resisted arrest, and caused a scene in the courtroom.

"Newspaper reports gave sensationalized accounts of her arrest." to say the least. Now, this is an interesting twist, her ex-husbands sister was a deputy sheriff in Los Angeles County, and as a 'family member' signed the commitment papers that transferred Frances from jail to the Psych Ward in L.A. General Hospital. They diagnosed her with with "manic depressive psychosis".

"Within days" she was sent to the Kimball Sanitarium in La Crescenta and diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic and given 'shock treatments' with insulin injections to induce a comatose state. (Insulin shock therapy was featured and dramatized in the 2001 film A Beautiful Mind. The only countries still doing this are China and Russia.)

Of course from then on Farmer was incarcerated and re-incarcerated until 1953, which suddenly she was released and left alone.

The circumstances of Farmer's downfall between 1939-1943 sound plausible, but from the moment her "sister-in-law" signed her into the LA psych ward it smacks of conspiracy to label her crazy and keep her locked away. I'd like to know who put the sister-in-law up to it, and who the doctors were that made the diagnosis. notice how that upped the diagnosis from manic depression to paranoid schizophrenic in a matter of days. It's fishy, because there's really nothing in her history to indicate schizophrenia. As for paranoid, well, just because you're paranoid in Hollywood doesn't mean they're not really out to get cha.
