(Newser) – Analysts looking through Jared Lee Loughner's deranged online ramblings say that while some influence from the extreme left and extreme right is apparent, the only pigeonhole that fits is the one marked "insane." Some elements of the fringe right share Loughner's fixation on grammar conspiracies, currency manipulation, and the "second United States Constitution," experts tell the Los Angeles Times, although no coherent philosophy emerges from his online postings. On the leftist side, he counted the Communist Manifesto as among his favorite books.

Loughner "did not watch TV. He disliked the news. He didn’t listen to political radio. He didn’t take sides. He wasn’t on the left. He wasn’t on the right," a high school friend of his tells ABC. The accused mass murderer's biggest influence, the friend says, was the online conspiracy theory documentary series Zeitgeist. The series had a profound influence on how Loughner viewed the world, the friend says. "He wasn’t shooting at people. He was shooting at the world.”

Jared Loughner has mentioned Mind Control in his video. He suffered "Sleep deprivation". Jared writes “All humans are in need of sleep. Jared Loughner is a human. Hence, Jared Loughner is in need of sleep.” Torturers used their electromagnetic (/microwave) mind control weapons:- ? To hack victims brain; ? To "inject" dreams to victims brain at night; ? To "inject" thoughts to victims brain every day; ? To harass victims brain with electromagnetic waves and make victims cannot concentrate to do anything; ? To torture victims and make victims suffer many diseases; ? To harass victims with "voice to skull" technologies; An anonymous Survey for Mind Control Victims (result on 19 Dec 2009), the result shows that victims have suffered many symptoms. You can read these symptoms in question16 of the survey from the following link: http://peacepink.ning.com/forum/topics/surveys-in-many-languages Thousands people have claimed that they have been torturing and abusing by covert Mind Control Weapons (and Directed Energy Weapons).
