Sherlock Says: Charlie Manson Story Doesn’t Add Up

This week, 83-year-old Charles Manson is reportedly on his death bed at Mercy Hospital in Bakersfield, outside the prison where he is alleged to be held. Authorities are not forthcoming with details, and the whole story line is hush hush. Information about prison protocols for taking a convict with a life sentence to a local hospital is also not forthcoming. But that has ALWAYS been the case with Manson.

Author Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s fictional character Sherlock Holmes employed a method of deduction not commonly utilized in today’s brainwashed world. Holmes often used “backward reasoning,” or convergent thinking. It means starting with things that don’t add up, or that make little sense, and then going backward to the root.

Let’s try a bit of convergent thinking with the story of Charlie Manson’s supposed sojourn in California’s maximum security prison system. As we always ask at The New Nationalist (TNN) and/or our motto: Nothing to see here, move along? You decide.

Over the years, Manson has been dollied up and rolled out for around 100 interviews. His appearance is altered each time. The news specials on Charlie in and of themselves would be an unheard privilege for any inmate. Many of Charlie’s interviewers were obscure figures who were never seen or heard from again.

Numerous interviews can be viewed online, so other Sherlocks can have at it. He constantly mocks the viewer on how he is pulling lies and deceit off on them. Charlie is never restrained and often stands up and does little clown shows and dances. In the Geraldo Rivera interview, the two talk mano y mano, nearly touching knees. In the following video, you’ll see a rambling Manson actually touching Rivera and getting right up against him. Really? In a max-security prison, such behavior is a real treat and privilege. Sure.


In recent years, Charlie has been given even more privileges, such as posing for zany photos with his cut-out-looking “fiancee,” who said she planned to exhibit his mummified body after his death. This kind of physical contact is not permitted in maximum security prisons anywhere in the U.S. Even in lower-security prisons, there is strict protocol on contact with family and conjugal visits.

Fellow Sherlocks, the following is California’s penal regulation regarding facial and hair grooming. Is there much administrative discretion in these rules? Only for Charlie, apparently. On the right, note a photo of cleanly groomed, older, Mexican-gang inmates in prison.

– An inmate’s hair and facial hair shall be clean, neatly styled, and groomed, as specified in these regulations.uzj85e3

– An inmate shall not alter the appearance of his/her hair or facial hair by changing its natural color.

– An inmate’s hair or facial hair may be any length but the inmate’s hair shall not extend over the eyebrows or cover the inmate’s face. If hair or facial hair is long, it shall be worn in a neat, plain style, which does not draw undue attention to the inmate.

In 1989, Charlie did an interview with Penny Daniels. Start at minute 2:40 (below), as he struts in looking like a wild caveman with long hair and beard. Notice this convicted killer is given the unique privilege to wear a leather necklace. The sunglasses are a nice touch, too. At minute 4:30, notice his pinky ring. This is most definitely in violation of penal regulations for prisoners.

At minute 3:45, Charlie starts discussing “his role in this film” and gives out a “Hollywood address.” Really? The maximum-security prison regulations allow on-the-spot business negotiations? At 6:15, Charlie has some fun reading the riot act to a prison official and telling him to shut up. The “official” just tolerates it. The psy-ops here, of course, is to build the persona that Charlie is some sort of Spingali — ahem, I mean Svengali — that can “control people.” Notice how lucid he acts — I mean sounds — in the following video before he goes off into his monkey act.

In 1998, the California prison system cracked down on its administrative standards, as described in this Christian Science Monitor article. The photos below shows an older Charlie under this new regime. In more recent years, this has been relaxed to one-half-inch beards — but not for Charlie.

– According to new grooming rules passed by the California Department of Corrections (CDC), there will be no more long hair, beards, large mustaches.

The first photo shows an early Charlie appearance with the swastika he managed to have tattooed while in maximum security prison. Now, compare it with the second photo in which the swastika moves away from the left brow and the cross stem changes size. In particular, compare the thickness of the lower stem in all three photos. In the last photo the swastika has moved higher yet, off the brow and again has a different shrunken size and curvature. Yes, skin sags a bit with age, and in Charlie’s case, apparently upward. Charlie looks pretty spry for a man who has allegedly spent a life in prison.

As we have seen on many occasions on these pages where I go over hoaxes, storytellers can get sloppy; and frankly, at times, it seems they don’t even care. They have complete disdain for the general audience, and Charlie definitely expresses this in his black magic performances. Sherlock would look at these anomalies and ask, “What’s going on here? Is it some sort of psy-op?” Listen to Charlie’s speech on sneaky truth and extreme moral relativism (aka perv justice warrior).

The ludicrous anomalies in the Manson family’s Tate murder are endless. One of my favorites: How did Tex Watson, who allegedly did the dirty deed at the Tate residence, manage to sire four children in maximum security prison where conjugal visits are not permitted? Fellow Sherlocks can find much more on the Tate murders in this article by Miles Mathias.

  1. Curiously, the big 1992 film documentary, ‘Charles Manson, Then & Now’, was done by film director Nick Bougas, who attended the legendary 8 August 1988 (8-8-88) Satanist rally in San Francisco, and Bougas also did the 1995 film ‘Speak of the Devil, the Canon of Anton LaVey’. Bougas apparently has a fetish for artifacts & memorabilia from horrific crime scenes, for which he is known as a great ‘expert collector’. Here’s his 106-minute Manson film

  2. Miles Mathis is a fantasist. He is writing fiction. He’s also a liar. He stated in one of his essays that Matt Hale is like Charles Manson, a psyop, and that Matt Hale is not in federal prison. I let Matt Hale’s mother know what Miles Mathis thinks. We both had a good laugh — at Miles’ expense and his wild imagination, and then we both wrote letters to Matt Hale at his maximum security “home” (which houses Ted Kazinski as well) in order to give him hope and help.

    • I see the logic in some of what MM writes, but I also feel that he takes huge leaps of assumptions also. Plus, his world view seems to insist on completely disregarding the documented Satanists in the elite… Instead he chalks all “occultism” to CIA operations. This is a big error and bias in his work, I feel.

  3. This reminds me of how I’ve always wondered how Bobby Beausoleil managed to record a film soundtrack while being in prison for murder. Seems like quite a privilege.

  4. I do not agree on the Swastia tat, it looks like it’s in the same spot in all photos. He has different expressions in each so of course it will look a little different. But you are right about the prison protocols, of which he appears to not have to follow.
