Vancouver, BC – Exclusive new video published to social media on February 13, 2019, explores seemingly indicting granular audio reflections from tapes of best-selling U.S. national intelligence author James Bamford’s interviews with confessed unregistered Russian foreign agent Maria Butina. Outtakes from these recordings were released earlier this week by CNN. On that same day an article published in The New Republic offered the sympathetic portrait of pro-gun rights Right to Bear Arms’ founder as an American University graduate swept up in the “Trump-Russia maelstrom”.  However, none of these arguments explain the manner in which the new video shows Maria Butina appearing to cite an “enemy” in sleep talking–like encrypted narrative while describing her arrest by the FBI.

Russian activist Maria Butina was arrested by agents of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation in Washington, D.C., last summer where she was charged with acting as an agent of a foreign government absent prior notice to the U.S. Attorney General. Held in solitary confinement the Siberian native gave in December what Russia’s Foreign Ministry described as a false forced confession pleading guilty to conspiracy.

Author James Bamford’s 1982 book “The Puzzle Palace: Inside the National Security Agency, America’s Most Secret Intelligence Organization” exposed a 1976 Justice Department criminal investigation into massive illegal domestic NSA wiretapping, a nightmare that re-emerged into public consciousness during the George W. Bush administration’s surge in “Top Secret America” economics at the beginning of this century.

The Emmy-nominated journalist told The New Republic how he met with Maria Butina over a number of lunches earlier last year where he commenced a series of interviews that continued after her arrest. Outtakes from taped interviews that were released by CNN showed the accused protesting her innocence.

Earlier NewsInsideOut.com coverage of events surrounding Maria Butina investigated her videotaped appearance at 2015 FreedomFest where an unforced sleep talking-like confession disclosing status as a Russian spy was revealed via granular audio analysis of spontaneous on-camera remarks. Previous granular audio work by this reporter identified a Russian spy in the 2010 Anna Chapman “Illegals Program” whose name was published in the Wall Street Journal nine months later.

The aura of certitude that accompanies the following reporting is founded in this writer’s historic international public legacy exceeding industry standards of performance and reliability in forwards-looking counterintelligence investigative journalism. The following is a transcript of outtakes provided by CNN of James Bamford’s Maria Butina interview tapes. Multidimensional speech messages are indicated in bold followed by the context in which they were discovered. Granular audio methods are discussed later in this article.

We need surrender. We have struggled. Believe the lie: If I would be invisible Russian spy, you would never see me in public. I would be the most unseen person on Earth.

There’s an enemy: I had just cleaned my apartment and I was baking banana bread. They told me “FBI, search warrant” so I opened the door. They just walked in the door. I was pushed back.

Interpreting these messages invites the observer to consider the role of ideology and ideological indoctrination in the behaviors of Maria Butina. In the first instance this speaker appears engaged with a struggle related to identity insomuch as she outwardly denies being a spy while secretly commanding compliance with a narrative in which Maria Butina appears to have little faith.

The notion of struggle is itself central to Marxist ideology found in discussions of class struggle and the struggle of the proletariat labor class vs the bourgeoisies. This begs the question if a Russian spy would show indications of intensive Communist indoctrination such as those revealed in this study focussed upon Maria Butina, any more so than an average Russian citizen.

In sharp contrast to the U.S.-Russian friendship mission cited by Maria Butina in reports linked above, the speaker appears in the second instance to recognize an adversarial force when discussing how representatives of the federal government arrested her. A 2018 NewsInsideOut.com report investigating police bodycam footage of YouTube shooter Nasim Aghdam revealed her assertion of “militia” status during a public safety check conducted by officers at a Walmart parking lot in Silicon Valley.

Would a Russian intelligence old-guard ideologue construe representatives of the United States government as “enemy” personnel any more so than the average Russian citizen studying in a foreign country?

In this reporter’s opinion Maria Butina is the spy who said too much. If James Bamford had intended to further shield her reputation he would have been well-advised to never allow these tapes to enter the public record in a widely-publicized journalistic climate where digital audio workstations shred false testimony for days.

Methods

Research that exposed human speech as a “multidimensional stimulus” with “numerous ways you can extract a message from it” was reported in the scientific journal Nature in 1999. In that report human observers were described as competent in resolving words while listening to highly-distorted speech recording samples. The procedure followed by scientists at Cal State involved digitally sampling recordings of human speech where samples were then reduced to grains of @50ms in duration.

Those grains were then locally time-reversed and globally resequenced in an attempt to emulate conditions found in voice-over-digital-network transmission (now commonly referred to as VoIP telephony). This methodology parallels techniques commonly used in biosciences where the nucleotides (grains) of a DNA molecule (sample) are resequenced in attempts to express novel characteristics of existing organisms (or to synthesize entirely new organisms from existing genetic materials).

For every set of discrete items the number of possible permutations of its order or sequence can be determined by using what is known as the factorial function (n!) where for example 3! = 3 x 2 x 1 = 6. In terms of granular speech synthesis the number of 50ms grains can be substantial, leading to what mathematicians call large numbers. For example, calculating the number of possible permutations of a set of 21 50ms grains by factorial function can be said to result in approximately 51 sextillion different sequences (5.1090942e+19).

However, for every set of discrete items (no matter how many), it can also be said that one possible permutation will always reflect the mirror or reverse order of the original sequence. In such a way (1, 2, 3) is newly rendered as (3, 2, 1). This understanding offers a shortcut of which common knowledge within the scientific and engineering communities is indicated by the inclusion of reverse macro functions in widely-used digital audio workstation (DAW) software applications and hardware. Investigators following the sampling, granular time-reversing and resequencing procedure modeled by scientists studying human speech intelligibility at Cal State can bypass untold iterations and simply monitor audio playback in reverse or mirror order with one click of a cursor.

From this reporter’s perspective the most important reason for bypassing myriad alternative sequence iterations is founded upon empirical evidence of practical intelligence discovered encrypted backwards in human speech. In the public domain this intelligence has offered preemptive understanding of facts concerning the Iraq War, the identity of one serial killer, the identity of a Russian spy and the resurrection of a CIA assassination program all named in broadcast media and online publications sometimes years before they were substantiated by mainstream news reports. Some of these reports are detailed in links provided below.

However, within modern society there remain numerous deeply ingrained superstitious implications of such encrypted multidimensional speech phenomena. These perceptions can be said founded upon dogmatic unscientific belief in fictitious untestable unproven entities and their supposed influences upon human behavior. Proponents of such scandalous misconceptions would stir the public to reject any suggestion of a time wheel’s (Sanskrit “Kalachakra”) bi-directional rotation, for instance. It is this type of Luddite perspective that would discourage the use of an automobile transmission’s reverse gear, compelling motorists to circumnavigate the globe instead of simply backing into a parking spot.

Therefore, only those capable of rejecting medieval injunctions against widdershins procession can embrace the type of volatile materials revealed through such a path of auditory inquiry. To quote one prominent Seattle psychologist this extremely psychoactive procedure and its findings are “not for beginners”.
