Note, January, 2007:
There are three reports here, originally separate. Since they address the same issues, I have combined them into a single one.
Since the time these reports were written (January, 2006), my "predictions" re Al Gore and his agenda have begun to materialize.
Stew Webb has continued with his libelous falsehoods about Barbara Hartwell, Karl Schwarz and others. I still pray for Stew every day, as I have been doing for years, and love him as a brother in Christ. But that is all I can do. Stew has made his choices and he must take the consequences.
As for 9-11 widow, Ellen Mariani, she is my dear friend and has suffered far worse from the terrorist attacks than anyone else I know. To exploit her case, for their own agenda, as some have done, is absolutely shameful and insufferable.
Ellen has stood up for the Truth about 9-11, and for the most part has stood alone. She has refused to be a part of the coverup, has refused to take hush money, as some of the other families of victims have done. God bless Ellen Mariani, a rare person of courage and integrity.
PART ONE: A Matter of Great Concern
To Whom It May Concern:
This past week some issues have surfaced which I now find it necessary to address. Considering that these issues, and disagreements regarding them, are now being aired publicly, I write this public statement for the purpose of making sure my own position is clear, as I have been involved in some of the communications with various parties who have expressed opposing positions on these issues.
1) 9/11 Evidence
On the Hal Turner Network, Thursday, January 5, 2006, Stew Webb and Tom Heneghan made negative comments regarding Karl Schwarz. They did not use his name openly, but referred to him in their criticism for taking 9/11 evidence he had collected to New York State Attorney General Elliot Spitzer. Their position was basically that Elliot Spitzer is the enemy and that Karl Schwarz should not have given such info to the enemy.
In the radio commentary on Spitzer, there were also remarks and slurs about "Jews" which, in my estimation, reflected a bigotry that was uncalled for and in any case, not relevant in the matter of 9-11 evidence. As I told Karl Schwarz in a phone conversation later that same evening, in my opinion, furnishing evidence for an investigation of 911 to the proper legal authority was the right thing to do, whether or not that authority appreciated it; or was likely to pursue due diligence in acting on it.
Then there is the fact that Tom Heneghan and Stew Webb were named as sources in an article by Tom Flocco [re 911 widow Ellen Mariani] in which it was stated that Heneghan and Webb also provided information to Spitzer. Karl Schwarz has made it clear that he went to Spitzer with another individual on December 27, 2004 and that no information coming from Webb or Heneghan was included in the evidence package.
[See addendum from Karl Schwarz at bottom of page]
2) Al Gore
Previous to this radio show on the Hal Turner Network, Karl Schwarz had written a commentary in which Al Gore was mentioned, not in a favorable light. As far as Gore is concerned, I happen to agree with Karl. I do not support Al Gore and never have.
On the other hand, Tom Heneghan and Stew Webb have promoted Gore over roughly the past two (2) years as "the duly elected president of the United States." Although I have been a close friend and professional associate of Stew Webb since 2001, I need to make it clear that I have never been involved in any of the activities which promoted Al Gore nor with the so-called American French Alliance.
I happen to know, due to my background of many years in CIA, that Al Gore was involved in certain business dealings, organizations and activities connected to the so-called New Age movement. The New Age movement is used in psychological operations to spread propaganda and foment New World Order dictates. Both Democrats and Republicans are a part of the NWO scheme; though they approach it from different angles, the end result is the same: tyranny by trampling on the God-given rights of the individual. A totalitarian one world government in which national boundaries and sovereignty are expunged.
In addition, I must say I will never forget Al Gore's outrageous response to the Columbine massacre. As Vice President, he appeared as a speaker at a memorial presentation, and actually used the tragedy as an opportunity to lobby for gun control! Gore was also, strangely enough, dressed in a black trenchcoat when he took the stage. I found this disturbing to say the least, as the "Trenchcoat Mafia" was cited as the group the perpetrators and certain other students were alleged to have belonged to.
In fact, I discussed this with Tom Heneghan the first time I ever spoke to him, in 2004. I clearly outlined my position on Gore and told him that unless (and until) I was furnished with hard evidence of a sincere change of heart (and political position) from Gore I could never support him in any way.
In summary on the Al Gore issue: I am in agreement with Karl Schwarz that Gore is not a solution for America's problems. And the only solution I can see --or have ever seen-- is to return this country to the Rule of Law under the Constitution. I believe that can happen in only one of two ways:
Change the leadership through an independent third party which defends the Constitution, with no compromises.
A second American revolution in which corrupt politicians are removed from office by force.
3) Tom Flocco Articles and Sources
First let me say that my name has never appeared in any of Tom Flocco's articles. I was put in contact with Tom Flocco this past summer (2005) by Stew Webb, one of the sources for a series of articles he has written on topics such as 9/11; grand jury investigations and related topics. Because I have worked with Stew for a number of years on various investigations; and because he and I have been targeted by common enemies among the criminals in government and their minions, I have discussed some of these issues in telephone conversations with Tom Flocco since that time.
My estimation of Tom Flocco is that he is a sincere person attempting to get to the truth on any issue; a person who wants to see justice done and to depose the criminals in government. Flocco has been criticized by many people because in several of the articles he wrote, hard evidence for the claims of the sources was not presented; and because some of the sources were anonymous or using pseudonyms to protect their identity.
Speaking strictly for myself, I do not accept the testimony of anonymous sources and I require hard evidence before drawing any conclusion. I also do not promote any information unless I know it to be factual. Although I have been in possession of information in relation to certain of these articles, there were others about which I had no way to make a determination. So I simply took a "wait and see" attitude. Let me say it this way: I personally do not know whether or not Bush and Cheney have been indicted. I do not personally know whether or not Barbara Olsen was arrested in Europe. And because I do not know, because I personally have seen no hard evidence to substantiate these allegations, I have not had much to say on these matters. Nor will I comment upon them until such time as I have concrete evidence to substantiate either the truth or the falsehood of these allegations.
Judging from the comments written by many who would like to trash my reputation, they seem to assume that just because I have had a longstanding association with Stew Webb, I am in agreement with him about every issue and/or am involved with every activity or endeavor he pursues. This is simply not true. Stew and I have had our disagreements over the years; and in most of these cases we simply agreed to disagree, while still cooperating and working together on those endeavors in which we had a solid agreement.
Judging from recent events, I can say it may have reached the point where I have irreconcilable differences with Stew Webb in matters of great importance. Only time will tell, but most importantly for me, I refuse to compromise my principles nor to move one inch away from what I stand for, even if that means I lose friends, witnesses or allies.
I stand for Liberty and I stand in defense of God-given (natural) unalienable, Constitutionally protected and guaranteed rights.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Addendum from Karl Schwarz
Hello Tom, Stew,
Over the weekend one of Flocco's articles was brought to my attention, purportedly written about Ellen Mariani with the byline "by Tom Flocco and Stew Webb."
First off, I am a private citizen, not a federal whistleblower:
"Federal Whistleblower Karl Swartz's investigation revealed that missiles were retrofitted by Hughes Corp on one of their A-3 Airplanes at the Ft Collins Colorado Airport and that one of them was the missile that hit the Pentagon—not an airplane."
Secondly, the proper spelling of my name not Swartz or Schwartz, it is SCHWARZ.
Third, the next statements are the main reason I sent this email to you and many others as it appears twice in the joint Flocco and Stew Webb article:
"New York Attorney General Elliott Spitzer, filed a RICO Suit against Greenberg instead of putting him in jail in 2005 after whistleblowers Stew Webb, Tom Heneghan and Karl Schwarz provided evidence to Spitzer who then covered it up. But Greenberg had to resign as CEO of AIG to take the heat off of the connections to Greenberg-Traurig."
"Whistleblowers Schwartz, Heneghan and Webb provided evidence to New York Attorney General Elliot Spitzer who continues the cover-up, which is obstruction of Justice."
For the record boys, neither of you had anything to do with what me and another person delivered to Spitzer's office on December 27, 2004.
I was there and can assertively state that neither of you were with me at Spitzer's office nor did you have anything to do with what I delivered [documents pertaining to a fraudulent $120 billion Brady Bond transaction] to Spitzer's office in any manner whatsoever.
If you have presented separate evidence, clearly state exactly what that was, exactly what documents, and when presented for I have never collaborated with either of you (Stew Webb or Tom Hennegan) on anything that I did take to Spitzer's office.
It is glaringly apparent that the recent actions against V K Durham and me are linked to your affinity for Al Gore, our separately outing of Gore and the stated fact that neither of us having any intentions of ever supporting Al Gore. I guess maybe it did not occur to you that the falsified gold certificates on that $120 billion dollar Brady Bond fraud tie back to GAIA and Clinton, Gore and the Bush family.
It is odd that you first claim what appears to be co-credit on what went to Spitzer and then go on Hal Turner's Show last Thursday night questioning my taking evidence to Spitzer, after the expose I issued on Gore January 1, 2006.
Thank you both for showing your true colors.
PART TWO: All Aboard! The Al Gore Freedom Train?
Last night on the Hal Turner Network, Stew Webb and Tom Heneghan put on a performance which I can only categorize as a theater of the absurd. The broadcast consisted mostly of a cacophony of shouting and melodrama. Near the end of the program, they threw in wild allegations regarding myself and Karl Schwarz which made me wonder if these two gentlemen have gone off the deep end. They also felt the need to issue a disclaimer that the Hal Turner Network was not responsible for the content of the show. First time I'd ever heard that, but by the end of the program I saw the method behind the madness.
Before addressing these allegations, I should mention that prior to this broadcast, Stew had made it clear to several persons I know that he was on the warpath against Karl Schwarz, threatening to "take him down", apparently for the very simple reason that Karl refused to go along with endorsing Albert Gore Jr. as "the duly elected president of the United States"; or in promoting Gore as the solution to America's problems. As a matter of principle, I stand in agreement with Karl. This is nothing new, I have held the same position for many years. I have never, privately or publicly, stated otherwise, to Stew Webb, Tom Heneghan or anyone else.
What has become clear to me and several others, including Karl Schwarz, is that there is an agenda here, one that supersedes returning America to the Rule of Law under the Constitution. It would seem that there are two trains running. I for one, haven't bought my ticket for the Al Gore Freedom Train, nor will I ever.
Now, why is it that there has been such an extreme reaction from Webb and Heneghan against people who refuse to endorse Gore, including myself and Karl Schwarz? Why can't they just agree to disagree with us if they in fact share the same overarching agenda: To return this country to the Rule of Law under the Constitution.
Last week on the Hal Turner Network, Stew and Tom criticized Karl Schwarz for furnishing 9/11 evidence to Elliot Spitzer, as if by so doing he was trafficking with the enemy. Evidence that they had previously tried to claim some degree of credit for, themselves. As those who read my last commentary are aware, I expressed my disagreement with this mindset, on general principles. I also saw this as an unwarranted personal attack on Karl. Rather than bringing the real issue out in the open (their support, endorsement and promotion of Al Gore, which Karl does not share) they threw out a distraction re 9/11 evidence for the apparent purpose of making Karl look like some sort of traitor.
Several days before the lastest radio broadcast (January 12, 2006) I received a message on my phone machine from Stew Webb. The message was an ultimatum: Either call him back before the end of the day or he would assume our relationship was over. Specifically, "I will cut you off."
As it happened, I had been ill for about two weeks; I was in a weakened state, and was in no mood to be shouted at, which Stew has been known to do when he feels strongly about any issue. Previous to this phone message from Stew, I had asked a mutual friend to please give Stew a message for me, to tell him that I would call him as soon as I was able to.
But more importantly, nobody --but nobody-- delivers an ultimatum to me; or if they do, they are told in no uncertain terms that they need to adjust their attitude if they want to remain on good terms with me. I wrote Stew two personal/confidential letters by e-mail, explaining that, and said I'd be happy to talk to him if he wanted to do so in a civilized and respectful manner; but that I would not respond to an ultimatum, nor to anyone who tries to pressure me into doing their bidding. Stew's attitude in this case seemed to be: My way, or the highway!
I also explained in my letters that I could not in good conscience endorse some of his actions, as a matter of principle; nor would I become involved in any "cloak-and-dagger" type endeavors which might be tainted by manipulating or exploiting others or misrepresenting the truth as a means to an end. I do feel, based on my own knowledge and information, that Stew Webb and Tom Heneghan misled Tom Flocco as to certain information from "intelligence sources".
And I can state without reservations, based on lengthy personal conversations with him, that Tom Flocco is an honest and sincere person. I also know him to be a kind and compassionate person who has done his best to help others in various ways, including myself. In fact, after Tom Flocco read my affidavit of July 2005, he sent me a contribution, one of very few who did. As it turned out, the only two people who posted my affidavit were Rick Stanley of the Revolutionary Coalition and ex-FBI agent Geral Sosbee. I had repeatedly asked Stew to read it, as it was important to me, and also requested that he post it on his site. The last I knew, he had not even read it, which disappointed me, to say the least.
I also explained to Stew that ISSUES and FACTS were relevant here; rather than personal motives and personality conflicts. I told him that I had not turned against him, nor betrayed his trust in any way. That I wanted to stay a friend, not have him view me as an enemy, just because we disagree on serious issues. I never got any response from Stew, not by e-mail or phone. The only response I got was the unwarranted allegations about me on the Hal Turner Network, in which several other individuals were named, including Karl Schwarz, VK Durham and 9/11 widow, Ellen Mariani.
So now, according to Stew Webb and Tom Heneghan, and their latest spin on current events, I, Barbara Hartwell, am connected to some shady Israeli spy ring, via my association with Karl Schwarz. I was kind of expecting them to say I am CIA, which seems to be the old standby for those who disagree with me and need a handy excuse to dismiss me from their lives when I refuse to compromise my principles or go along with their particular agenda. But they didn't. Thank the Lord for small miracles.
Their attack on Karl Schwarz, complete with shouted accusations, histrionics, and even threats, was apparently based on the flimsy pretext (also bogus) that Karl held interests in the technology company that was involved in the spying. Aside from being a totally unsubstantiated allegation (Karl provided documented facts to refute it), and aside from being absurd, it looks like they're playing dirty pool...with the specific intent of putting Karl Schwarz behind the eight ball. I won't stand by and watch that, nor have any part in it. Rather, it is my duty to stand up for the truth as I know it.
Next item: Webb and Heneghan implied that Barbara Hartwell is some kind of fool who has been hoodwinked and manipulated by Karl Schwarz. Nothing could be further from the truth. They apparently cannot get their minds around the simple fact that I happen to agree with Karl Schwarz on many important issues, including but not limited to, the true nature of Al Gore; the fact that the corruption and the overall tyranny we face in this country today is engendered from both sides of the two-party system, Republicans and Democrats.
Next, Stew Webb announced that Barbara Hartwell was "waiting on VK Durham" for the promises of money from a "whistleblower fund". Again, nothing could be further from the truth.
1) I haven't spoken to VK Durham since 2003. I'm sure she would be my witness, if asked.
2) VK never promised me, at any time, any money connected to a whistleblower fund.
3) It was Stew Webb himself who told me, several months ago, that VK wanted to start a whistleblower fund to help us all.
In fact, I was hearing plenty of tales about these so-called whistleblower funds, with different parties being named as benefactors. My response was always pretty much the same: Well, that sounds great. I'll believe it when I have the money in my hands.
Same thing when I was told "protection" would be made available to me from the American French Alliance. Wonderful thought, but no such protection ever showed up, not even a lone gun bodyguard or commando. I've had to watch my own back for years, meanwhile sticking my neck out to help some of these cloak-and-dagger types who were nowhere to be found at the times I could have used their services. I hardly consider myself a damsel in distress, awaiting rescue from a Knight in Shining Armor. Nice fantasy, I suppose, but then, this is the real world.
But moving right along, Stew and Tom didn't attack me as they did Karl. No, they were patronizing, speaking of me as if I were just a recalcitrant child, or a fool. Apparently, all I rated was a mild scolding. (I could just visualize them shaking a finger at me as they addressed me on the air.) Stew at least, should know better; we've been good friends for years and have had disagreements before. I have always stood my ground, just as I am doing now. There has never been any animosity between me and Stew, despite any such disagreements. Nor do I have animosity toward him now. In fact, I was actually laughing through any outrage I felt at their antics. At least they were entertaining.
But I must say I do not appreciate the patronizing comments from either gentleman, such as Tom Heneghan's remark, Barbara, if you're listening, we still love you, dear.
Okay, if they "love" me then maybe they could start to show it by treating me with respect instead of condescension. Better yet, maybe they could --instead of their attempts to paint me as a fool, or a silly girl, hoodwinked by a traitorous operative of an Israeli spy ring-- just address the REAL issues openly and honestly. For a refreshing change....
Maybe they could just start LISTENING, when I and others speak and hear what is actually being said, instead of hearing what they want to hear.
In my opinion, Stew Webb and Tom Heneghan owe Karl Schwarz an apology. They owe VK Durham an apology. They owe Ellen Mariani an apology. They owe Tom Flocco an apology. I do not presume to speak for any of them, but only for myself. But these are all decent, honest people, each in their own way trying to get to the truth and expose it. All have suffered at the hands of the criminal rat bastards running this government, and they all speak from the heart.
I say this because based on my observations and based on known facts, each of these persons has been misled and/or been taken in with false promises; and/or exploited for an agenda which sadly, is not based first and foremost on exposing Truth and defending Liberty, but rather on political machinations for the purpose of seeing to it that one man, namely Al Gore, comes into a position of power.
All aboard! The Al Gore Freedom Train....
There are indeed, two trains running.
January 13, 2006
PART THREE: Regarding the Al Gore 2008 Agenda
In a post dated January 11, 2006, Stew Webb announced in the U.S. Intel Breaking News section of his website that he had "cut off all communications with Barbara Hartwell and Karl Schwarz due to a "change in their loyalties."
A January 12 post claimed that Karl Schwarz was "exposed" on the Hal Turner Network in "espionage against America" via involvement with Israeli companies; further, that he was "pushing disinfo" re depleted uranium and Al Gore. And finally, that "ex-CIA Barbara Hartwell has joined in Karl Schwarz's disinfo campaign."
Let me start by addressing the "change of loyalties" statement.
1) I, Barbara Hartwell, have not "changed" my loyalties to anyone or anything. My loyalties remain consistent. At no time was my "loyalty" to any person(s), but firstly to God and to defending the rights bestowed by God, also protected under the United States Constitution. My loyalties remain the same, as they always will. This statement by Stew Webb is a bald faced lie and the fact that he posted it on the front page of his "breaking news" section is an outrage.
2) As for Karl Schwarz, and his loyalties, I cannot speak for him, nor would I presume to do so. I only know that judging from anything I have ever read in his reports, or heard from him in personal conversations, he stands for the same principles as I do. In any case, Stew has made a serious mistake in publishing such false information and I cannot let it pass.
As for the "disinfo campaign":
1) I, Barbara Hartwell, have not "joined" any such campaign, disinfo or otherwise.
2) I have seen absolutely no evidence that Karl Schwarz is involved in any such disinfo campaign. Nor have Tom Heneghan or Stew Webb (who claim to have "exposed" him) furnished any evidence whatsoever that Karl is involved in disseminating disinfo, or in any form of "espionage".
3) I do my own investigations, write my own reports, just as I have always done, and will continue to do. I do not and will not "join" anything which would violate my principles. I stand for the same ideals I have always held dear: Truth, Liberty and seeing Justice done. And I am not involved in any form of "espionage" against the United States of America.
I find it truly sad that Stew Webb has resorted to fabricating lies about me and others, simply because we refuse to go along with his agenda in supporting, promoting and endorsing Al Gore. Or maybe, these lies are being fed to him by others in the Al Gore camp, and he believes them. Either way, there is no justification for the promotion of such falsehoods.
In my opinion, Al Gore is just another lying politician, who now happens to be jockeying for position for the 2008 elections. Consider this: Al Gore never defended the Constitution when he held the office of Vice President. CFR member and New Age proponent Al Gore was very much a part of the Clinton agenda and he was part and parcel of the corruption, tyranny and skulduggery of the Clinton administration. Documented facts back up this assertion. Facts that anyone may find on their own; they certainly don't need me to furnish the facts, they are there in plain sight, available to all and sundry, for anyone with eyes to see.
But now, just because Al Gore comes forward, in a well-timed televised speech, excoriating George W. Bush et al for their violations and transgressions; and because he purports to defend the Constitution, suddenly, after all these years, we should buy into his political rhetoric? We should swallow it, hook line and sinker?
Only a fool would jump on the Al Gore bandwagon on such a flimsy bit of "evidence".
Tom Heneghan was a major backer and campaign manager for Al Gore, to my knowledge, at least as far back as the 2000 elections. I have heard from several trustworthy sources that Heneghan was "Al Gore's right hand man".
It appears to me that since the inception of Stew Webb's association and alliance with Tom Heneghan, that he bought into the "Gore is on our side" propaganda being promoted by Heneghan. Before Tom Heneghan appeared on the scene, I never heard Stew endorse Al Gore. Never once. Now, it seems he is willing to cut off and denounce his friends and allies simply because we refuse to be a part of the Gore agenda.
This is truly heartbreaking for me, as it is clear that not only has Stew cut me off, now he evidently feels justified in falsely accusing me of having connections to Israeli espionage via Karl Schwarz ; and further, alleging that I am part of a disinfo campaign. Now, it would appear, according to Stew Webb, I am "the enemy".
But whatever he may believe about me, I can state with no qualifications, that these allegations made by Stew Webb have absolutely no basis in fact. Furthermore, I cannot in good conscience allow him to continue publishing these lies without stepping forward in my own defense to refute them. Lastly, I did believe for years, that Stew Webb was, first and foremost, a patriot; a defender of the Constitution who stood for individual liberty and the unalienable rights bestowed by God.
But considering his utterly false allegations against myself and others, including Karl Schwarz, I have had no choice but to reassess those beliefs. My loyalties have not shifted one iota. But I'm afraid I cannot say the same for Stew Webb.
I will continue to fight tyranny in any form I may find it, wherever I find it, from whichever direction it emanates. Whether it comes from George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush; from Bill and Hillary Clinton; from Al Gore and his supporters or any others.
Finally, I will repeat: Mark my words. Al Gore is NOT the solution for America's problems. Al Gore is NOT a defender of the Constitution, nor ever has been. I will not support, endorse or promote Al Gore in any way. Nor will I vote for him, should he become the presidential candidate in any party in 2008.
Speaking strictly for myself, I have not voted in over thirty years. That is my prerogative. When and IF I find a candidate worth voting for, one who defends the Constitution with no compromises, I will change my policy. And I will demand a paper ballot.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Liberty or Death. Don't Tread on Me.
