Bio: Good old Elmer they say, leave him be they say, stay off Elmer’s lawn they say or you will hear about it for weeks to come. This man is a total curmudgeon and is simply fighting the world within his own twisted mind. This old timer earned his moniker simply do to being grumpy and never satisfied with anything ever, this made him both dreaded and successful in his professional life before entering the shadows and rebellion. Elmer was the Director of Homeland Security and worked along side Director Jarred Mitchell before well Elmer went rogue and you guessed it joined up with the rebellion and not just the rebels but the Black Site “The Post Office” and their elite assassin order of the President’s Men.
While his colleague continued to work for the United Canadian American States (UCAS) as both the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the National Security Agency (NSA) for the next two decades. Elmer and Jarred served in the United States Army together, then both men followed each other into college and eventually post graduate school. They as well both entered the world of intelligence gathering together and became the CIA’s top field agents, one could say these spies where as thick as thieves and well thieves would be a correct analysis for these blood brothers.
So why would someone so patriotic turn his back on the government and join the violent revolution, well for that we need to look into Elmer’s past and understand that the UCAS is not all that innocent here and they are really to blame for all the troubles facing the nation today and adding fuel to the fire of the revolution, while crying foul when the rebels do something that wasn’t predicted or planned. Well Archibald Kingsbury might be a warmonger but he is never predictable and neither is Warren Buckley; though the leaders of the UCAS and James O’Brian thought they could outsmart these men while playing a deadly game of chess with Johnathan Jamestown and Oliver Jamestown McKeen. This was something that our leaders misjudged and well a game they should never have played against some of the best in the business.
This game the UCAS was playing would end up having disastrous results and cause the revolution to escalate to a point that even those within the ivory towers could no longer contain the effigy that was now in full blaze. They would turn to their top spies to figure out a solution and a hope to restore peace to the union. Well as history has shown this didn’t work either, ever wonder why the UCAS was always one step behind the rebels and always one step behind the Post Office well the answer is Director Elmer Canterbury.
In hopes to control Elmer and make him a subservient subject of the False Flag they would use some of the dirtiest tactics in the book and attempt to thwart his free will and his ability to object in any manner; this will include kidnapping his wife and children, murdering his brother, imprisoning his in-laws, executing his parents and even ceasing his personal property. Well all this did was light a fire under Elmer and instead of making him a “Yes Man” they turned this patriot into their worst nightmare and all his anger, frustration and disappointment would be focused on bringing down the UCAS from inside and turn the Home Land Security Office into the most unsecured department within the fledgling government.
Now Elmer wasn’t alone in his disgust and mistrust as the hero of the UCAS Jarred Mitchell the master of the mind, emotion and technology would become the greatest ally for Elmer and a serious thorn inside the ribs of the UCAS. I mentioned that the government would employ dastardly tactics against Elmer and his family though what needs to be mentioned is Jarred is Elmer’s best friend. He is the Godfather to Elmer’s son, he was Elmer’s best man at his wedding and oh I forgot to mention that Jarred’s kid sister married Elmer on Christmas Eve in 2019. This personal relationship between Elmer and Jarred was a crucial element that the UCAS over looked and as well the sheer willpower of the former Army Sargent.
Jarred might have become a victim of his own twisted mind control devices and birthed the Freedom Task Force unleashing terror onto the nation and anyone deemed an enemy of James O’Brian, the UCAS Government and the Usurpers but what they didn’t know was that Jarred created a fail safe for just that situation and would allow him to become a double agent and one that would be free to cause as much damage as he could. Though his actions when under their control would nearly cost him his life numerous times, the damage he caused when free to his ow devices well that would set the stage for the Jamestowns and Rebels to seize control in 2074 just one year after the war was officially declared.
Elmer and Jarred concocted a plan that would take many years to unfold and one that would devastate the landscape through politics and diplomacy not violence. The two men would begin the tearing down the wall when they would be forced to watch the gassing execution of Elmer’s in-laws who happened to be Jarred’s parents and well that execution was botched and the elderly couple suffered greatly before succumbing to the poisonous gas. This point the UCAS felt they had Elmer and Jarred but in reality they would never have Elmer and Jarred would require entrapping his own mind to keep the master spy under control.
Their plan would be drawn up within a smoke filled room in the basement of Jarred’s private residence in the Federal District and as the two spies burned the midnight oil they would unleash hellfire upon the UCAS without them knowing it. Records indicate that when Elmer asked Jarred how would they know when the plan was unfolded well all Jarred said was “Oh wait and see, you won’t be able to miss it. Nobody will be able to ignore the treachery any more once it reaches stage 5.” Well readers Stage 5 is upon us and the media outlets are receiving nearly a centuries worth of documents, personal transactions, video evidence, audio downloads and transcripts from private meetings of Presidents, Ambassadors, Senators, Congressmen, Federal Judges, Military Officials, Government Agencies and far more, far far more. It seems that Jarred and Elmer had created a cyber program that acted like a mole system and Trojan Horse and hide within plan sight inside every government, military, political, judicial and private network system of the UCAS and just recorded key strokes, and downloaded and deleted documents and files sending it to Jarred’s own server system that he only exposed to Elmer and than preceded to remove from his own memory for the safety on their plan.
Well this plan would unfold on December 24th 2074 on what would have been Elmer’s 55th wedding anniversary, soon no damage control or spin doctors in the known world will be able to undo the damage caused by these two men. This is another reason why the Federal Immortality Program would be proven to be a total failure, not just cause those injected would become old men and women but that they would have their minds enhanced, their capacity for learning increased and well their memories would not become clouded do to age as they learned more and more. James O’Brian would first learn this and put it to use to help forge the rise of the False Flag, and through his families money and direct influence they would create a legacy and family dynasty that would both tear down Old America and allow for the UCAS to rise from the ashes of the once great nation.
Now while the O’Brians might have planned on this takeover for ages and yet the one thing they couldn’t plan for was the others that survived to become a thorn in their plans and eventually become the downfall of everything. Elmer might have played a small part in the grand scheme of events that Jarred set forth but his role was greater than he could ever have known and Elmer would become the man that would bring down the False Flag even though Jarred set everything in motion. This was the plan all along and Jarred knew that he was a bigger target for the UCAS and his one time friend James O’Brian and Elmer would be dismissed as a lackey and flunky yet that was far from the truth. Elmer was taught personally by Jarred and given keywords to learn and speak before any meeting as a precaution, if Jarred didn’t recognise the phrases and keywords that Elmer knew Jarred was not himself and keep his distance and speak of nothing regarding “Tearing Down the Wall”.
Elmer would eventually be forced to go on alone without his best friend as Jarred’s own creation had poisoned his mind and he would deploy all his expertise on the rebels as a good cog in the machine should. Jarred had become a slave to the UCAS and was betrayed fully by his one time friend James O’Brian. Though sadly for James was that the system was being destroyed with every passing day and once Elmer would have enough and vacate his post in the NSA and take up ranks in the President’s Men an order that once housed Jarred and today again does. Elmer would unknowingly play another part in Jarred’s plan, the Curmudgeon would help reestablish the order that his friend had helped bring down.
The President’s Men and their anger would never allow the UCAS to go untested and unpunished for their sins and would become the direct threat to the sanctity of the Freedom Task Force and eventually spell their doom. Elmer joining that agency would give them direct intelligence and access to data files that the UCAS wanted no one to see ever and through private meetings with Jarred he would be given crucial intelligence on the Task Force locations, numbers, training centres and movements. This would allow the likes of Set, Hobgoblin, Scourge, Chimney, Roanoke and Splinter to bring down Task Force members one by one and as well hunt the likes of Agent Johnathan White in hopes to either break him of his programming or destroy him if needed.
The part Agent White would play in the grand scheme would be minor but he would be yet another victim of the O’Brian betrayal and through direct influence of James the two would be intertwined and unknowingly Jarred would brain dance and control the mind of his cousin. A chance meeting that was all part of James O’Brian’s plan and it would have worked if not for Elmer recognising Agent White during a meeting with Jarred and bring it to Mitchell’s attention when the coast was clear. The damage had already been done yet Jarred fail safe would hopefully allow White to break free one day or allow for the President’s Men to free him under the direction of Elmer. Though Agent white would prove to be far more of a threat than anyone had predicted and would become both crucial to Jarred and Elmer and a detriment at the same time.
Neither Jarred nor Elmer wanted John White killed but as he grew in power and success, his enemies increased and no longer could he be protected and by the time of the climax Jarred was fully under the control of the system and Elmer was simply a voice being ignored and it would take further outside influences and a transfer to Dr. Patrick O’Hair’s division within the CIA for Agent White to be saved and through the beatings of Rock he would retire and his mind would be his. John White might have played a small part in the entire show but his part like Elmer’s was grand and it kept Mitchell focused and human. It allowed for his true self to never be lost as he was fighting the machine, the President’s Men, the O’Bannon’s, the Freedom Patriots and the Brotherhood of Mercenaries for his own salvation and watching his family perish and his own organs being removed. Castration normally breaks any man but for Jarred it was a steady reminder of why he needed to break free of the device and not allow himself to succumb to the will of the UCAS.
Elmer and Jarred would end up having a significant impact in the outcome of the war that nobody could have ever predicted. The UCAS tried to play them both for a fool and they showed the UCAS that they are no fools and that they haven’t survived war, torture, imprisonment and being hunted by the best in the world to not learn a few things in the wake of it all. Now with there plan in full swing it would take a few more calculated plays to drive the final nail in the coffin of the UCAS before Stage 5 was realised. Elmer would contact the Railroad on Jarred’s behalf and set up the meeting when they knew Jarred would be free of the control and able to speak frankly with the same people that wanted him dead.
This was a risky endeavour but the Railroad are not murderers, they are men of honour, duty, dedication and put the people first; Elmer and Jarred where counting on this and hoping that Deacon Kirby and Rusty Rutherford would keep the others at bay long enough for Jarred to speak and extend his olive branch. This would come in the form of forwarded information to the Railroad that would allow them rescue key officials, citizens and people that would be eternally grateful and hold secrets the UCAS and Usurpers would never want known. These people would end up alerting the Railroad of the information and as well the Son’s of Liberty and from their the seeds of doubt would be planted as Mr. Boston would be given verifiable evidence to report on and the citizens throughout the UCAS would slowly learn of the deception from the UCAS and it’s true goal of enslavement.
This as well would come with great tragedy as the UCAS was growing paranoid of Jarred and his commitment to there cause, Jarred would show them through his actions that he was loyal yet all knowing that his brother in arms was out on the streets one step ahead of the Task Force and as well James O’Brian. With Agent White in retirement and Douglas O’Bannon now Winter Rat they would be able to focus further on the final stage of the plan. In the intelligence world patience is key to survival and so are your contacts and for Elmer and Jarred that list was extensive as they would show the rebel leaders why they are Gods among men in the spy game. Elmer would use his skills in deception, disguise and manipulation that would make Tudor Yates look like an amateur, to infiltrate the heart of the UCAS threat and plant himself as one of their key officials and for his safety I will leave it there. Elmer is no longer within that undercover operation but the damage he caused was great as he nearly toppled the ivory tower personally from within before vacating the post just moments before Stage 5 would be learned.
Now we all know that Jarred murdered the UCAS Joint Chief Chairman and his aids as well as countless guards on December 23rd when he would finally break free of his control thanks to the beating from Andrew Yates. Though for Jarred the timing couldn’t be better as he knew the show was about to start and he didn’t want to be within ground zero when the firestorm would tear the walls down. His arrest by the Post Office was from what this reporter can tell another calculated risk and one that cold have landed him in the hangman’s noose, and one Jarred was more than willing to put around his own neck if thats what it took to watch the UCAS burn before he swung.
Elmer would again be the voice of reason within the Post Office and Presidents Men and along with Farrus speaking on his behalf, not to mention Deacon Kirby, Oliver McKeen, Johnathan Jamestown, Rusty Rutherford, Carol Webster, Erza Roper, Baldwin English and Reverdy Jamestown all vouching for Jarred and his testimony. His life was spared and he would get to watch as Elmer would deliver the transcripts from Stage 5 to Secretary Woodrow McDaniels, Arthur Rummy and Joshua Dean the sheer amount of documents would be unthinkable and would verify Jarred’s claims as well his innocence through mind control.
Now as the publishing of this article media outlets throughout the nations of North America are receiving a centuries worth of verifiable government cover up’s, lies, murders, tragedies liking all the way back to the Great Tragedy of 2018 and more. As this information gets unloaded onto to the masses and the people learn that General Archibald Kingsbury has been actually speaking the truth the avalanche will be undeniable as the “Wall Gets Torn Down” brick by brick.
As of the posting of this article Jarred Kevin Mitchell has been reinstated within the President’s Men though has chosen to do good for the nation within the Harbingers, the US Elite and the Railroad, Elmer Canterbury has returned to the Post Office and President’s Men. Their story is far from over and so begins the redemption of J. Kevin Mitchell as he has many more sins to atone for and forgiveness will be earned through his actions. Many rebels still worry about the legend of legends in the spy game and his prowess with mind control and emotion control. Elmer on the other hand remains the voice of reason within the Post Office and that speaks volumes about the mental state of the elder curmudgeon who has been telling the world to piss off for generations.
I know this article wasn’t much on Elmer and his abilities and more of the work between J. Kevin Mitchell and Tearing Down the Wall. This story needed to be told and Elmer’s part in the grand scheme was very significant, without him this entire plan would have crumbled years earlier and James O’Brian would still be alive; Oh did I neglect to mention that Elmer and Jarred set the wheels in motion that would end up being James O’Brian’s downfall and lead the rebels straight to his hideout within Seattle. Thanks to Jarred each Rebel Order would receive a portion of the O’Brian fortune and Elmer would personally hand James over to Detective Donald Gray.
I mean I can tell you Elmer is a master in combat and his prowess with the blade is only matched by Johnathan Winters, Barb Albert, Herschel Meisner and Tracy Appleton and Jarred well he surpasses Elmer on every level and that is both comforting and down right scary. I can tell you that Elmer is one of the world’s best deckers and engineers though you might find the details boring, I can tell you that he is trained in neuroscience and psychology and sociology again more bring data dumps, how about his skills in intelligence gathering well I think I covered that Elmer is the second best spy in the game only trumped by J. Kevin Mitchell.
Elmer has been in the game for some time and has been honing his skills in the field, through the classroom and well his brother in-law. These men spent their life building up an empire that would topple the UCAS and becoming a weapon in the revolution; Elmer has suffered greatly at the hands of the people he served and yet he never broke and became their worst nightmare so if he is cranky and pissed off, well he has the right I think. Elmer is an angry old man that is perpetually telling the world “Come At Me Bro!” and well when it does he strikes it down with his royal purple sabre.
So in closing as J. Kevin Mitchell said all those years ago when Stage 5 would be unleashed “You won’t be able to miss it.” well those words are ringing loud and clear and as arrest warrants are struck, senators and judges flee, corporations topple and nations fall their are two men you can thank or blame and that is J. Kevin Mitchell and his brother Elmer Canterbury; they wanted to watch as the UCAS burned and well they just thew the torch on the great oil soaked effigy that is the United Canadian American States and for that I salute the both of you.
