RIP OFF REPORTS Cites Ken Adachi, Category: Liars



Charlatan Ken Adachi is a poseur and snake-oil salesman who claims expertise on "natural health". Is Adachi a doctor, in any discipline? No indeed. Not a medical doctor; not a naturopathic doctor, nor any other kind.


Yet, this rank amateur, Adachi, presumes to dispense MEDICAL ADVICE on his website. In his ignorance and arrogance, Adachi has gone so far as to make the sweeping statement, to his readers, "You don't need doctors!"


What you do "need", according to Ken Adachi, is the New Age doctrines (the doctrines of devils) he shamelessly promotes. Like "taking responsibility" for any disease or illness that might strike you. (The New Age mantra of "blame the victim".)


Like making sure your "karma" is in order, so you can "evolve". Getting to know the "spirit guides" who have been "assigned" to you. (Demons and unclean spirits, masquerading as "Angels of Light.")


But while you're waiting to "evolve" and move on to a higher plane of existence, why not order some of Adachi's marvelous health products, promoted on his website....


But alas, it seems there's a problem that could hold up your healing and "spiritual evolution": Evidently, this fraud, Adachi, is too "busy" to actually SEND the "health products" he touts, even after they have been paid for.

And in just this one case (and God only knows how many others have been ripped off...) A YEAR has gone by since the product was ordered....


Here, just one complaint filed against scamster Ken Adachi.

Ken Adachi Educate-yourself.org Beware - You will receive no product and loose your money Costa Mesa California

It's been almost a year since I ordered products from Ken and I have not received any part of my order from him. I contacted him several times and he advised me that he had been very busy but would ship them out by the end of the week. Finally he stopped responding to my messages all together.

I must suggest that you find other locations for your orgon materials, and there are plenty of alternatives available.

Three Stooges Adachi, White, Fahey: Who is Barbara Hartwell?





The notorious government stooges (aka The Three Stooges) Ken Adachi, Tim White and Todd Brendan Fahey, in collusion for years to scandalize the good name of Barbara Hartwell, have pooled their efforts once again.



The latest result of their white-hot spite, diabolical calumny and scandal-mongering, a smear piece titled, Who is Barbara Hartwell?, is promoted on the "Current News" section of Ken Adachi's New Age/government disinfo website, Educate-Yourself.


For the record, I haven't read this latest libel-fest and don't intend to. For the simple reason that I happen to know that it was written (under a pseudonym) by one Todd Fahey, a psychopath; criminal stalker; identity thief; forger, using many aliases and screen names in his obsessive efforts to destroy Barbara Hartwell.


This is just a recycled version of another smear piece written by Fahey, with the same title. Only the lies have changed.....


I also know that Tim White is one of the "sources" for this smear piece. White is an accomplice of Todd Fahey and other criminals in the regular dissemination of libelous falsehoods about Barbara Hartwell.


In fact, both of these loathsome freaks were criminally harassing me by e-mail, until I finally had to get rid of the e-mail address, the only way to stop them. And the last harassing e-mails I received from White and Fahey were in reference to the very same smear piece now being promoted by their comrade-in-slime, Ken Adachi.


What a coincidence...one of many, and not to be mistaken for anything other than what it is: Part and parcel of a criminal conspiracy against targets of the nefarious COINTELPRO.


On principle, I absolutely refuse to read anything in which this despicable character, Todd Fahey, has had the slightest involvement. Since 2004, Fahey has concocted the most outrageous lies imaginable, as well as fabricating pornographic filth which he has published in connection with my name.


Naturally, lowlife Ken Adachi exploits this opportunity to gleefully regurgitate all the libelous fabrications about Barbara Hartwell which he has been promoting since 2000, when he was tasked by former FBI chief, Ted L. Gunderson, with ruining the good name of Barbara Hartwell, come hell or high water.


Adachi (like his sleazy accomplices) is nothing more than a COINTELPRO minion and stooge, seeking attention and approval from the government operatives he toadies to, and from the public he lies to, to make his living. Just one of a gaggle of pathetic losers, misfits and G-Man wannabes...


But one has to wonder: Why would Ted Gunderson (by his own admission, "a counter-intelligence expert" who has suggested "spreading disinformation") choose a rank amateur, a New Age charlatan, a dilettante, a pseudo intellectual and ignoramus like Ken Adachi for his primary PR shill?


Can't he do better than that? I guess not, because if there were anyone at all with at least the appearance of being legitimate or credible, and willing to take on this mission, I'm sure I would still be living in blissful ignorance of the existence of this "malicious liar and petty fraudster"(comments by ex-FBI agent Geral Sosbee, whom Adachi has also attacked), Ken Adachi.


Gee whiz, Ted, I guess good help really is hard to find...and in this case, apparently impossible.


Ken Adachi, clearly lacking any legitimate, accurate or truthful "sources" for his nine-year (and counting...) libel campaign against Barbara Hartwell, has resorted to scraping the bottom of the barrel...again. Adachi will publish anything and everything he can get his grimy hands on, no matter how bizarre, no matter how outlandish, how ludicrous, how utterly appalling, and no matter how questionable the source, in his desperate attempts to discredit Barbara Hartwell.


Adachi has no interest in facts (never has, never will) nor has he ever troubled himself to seek out the truth about any matter involving Barbara Hartwell. No, Adachi gleans all his "information" from others of his ilk: malicious gossips, liars and busybodies, all government dupes, all of whom have an axe to grind. He slavishly parrots the lies he is told, incorporates these outrageous falsehoods into his own "reports", and claims he is "educating" the public about Barbara Hartwell.


And for the record, over the years, some of the "sources" Adachi has tried to pass off as "credible" in his libel campaign against Barbara Hartwell, include the following individuals:


Timothy Patrick White (hides behind many aliases and screen names) aka "Patrick Alexander" aka "George Mateski": predicate felon; career criminal; drug-trafficker; criminal stalker; extortionist; bi-sexual transvestite; child porno collector; sex pervert/predator (including targeting children); fed informant/snitch; psychopath.


Todd Brendan Fahey: (hides behind many aliases and screen names): criminal stalker; identity thief; forger; blackmailer; porno-monger; sex pervert/predator (including targeting children); scamster; grifter; psychopath.

Pamela Schuffert: criminal stalker; grifter; fed informant/snitch.


Brenda Negri (hides behind many aliases and screen names) aka "Ranger Rick" aka "James L. Choron": criminal stalker; sex pervert/predator; identity thief (including impersonating federal agents); fed informant/snitch; psychopath.

Larry Lawson: criminal stalker; fed informant/snitch; government disinfo-monger extraordinaire.


"Brice Taylor" aka Susan Ford: "Monarch sex slave"; government disinfo-monger.


What a marvelous bunch of folks! Their credentials and bona fides are unimpeachable! At least according to the standards of "journalism" adhered to by Ken Adachi....


Here's Adachi's latest. I have removed the links, as I refuse to promote the trash by these despicable liars. My comments are in brackets, preceded by my initials, BHP.

January 27, 2009


Who is Barbara Hartwell (January 27, 2009)
I received an e-mail on January 22, 2009 with a web site link from someone who wanted me to see the photos he had obtained of low level CIA internet agitator Barbara Hartwell's residence and the sponsorship that Hartwell has received from one [name removed]

[BHP: The "someone" who e-mailed Adachi is none other than Todd Fahey. The e-mail address (below) is one of many used by Fahey to harass targets. As for the monstrous invasions of privacy in publishing photos of my house, along with my private street address, the criminals Fahey and White have been soliciting additional criminal harassment/stalking by like-minded scum criminals for years. 

Solciting crimes is a crime in and of itself. One that Ken Adachi has been aiding and abetting, in collusion with these criminals.

As for Adachi's claim of "sponsorship", here is more wild speculation on his part; as usual, parroting the fabrications of Fahey, White and their accomplices. And naturally, they drag the name of another person about whom they know nothing into the smear piece.]

After confirming that the sender was not the two timing, back stabbing, Jack of All Deceit, Low Life known as Tim White, I agreed to post the link on Current News

[BHP: But of course Adachi "agreed" to post more libelous falsehoods about Barbara Hartwell. Why wouldn't he? After all, nobody could accuse him of having an iota of discernment or integrity...he publishes anything he can get, as long as it smears Barbara Hartwell.

But the pompous fool, Ken Adachi, evidently does not realize that Tim White is a "source" for this libelous piece of trash concocted by Todd Fahey. And considering the fact that Adachi promoted, defended and supported Tim White (including financially, by his own admission) for years, as an accomplice in the libel campaign against Barbara Hartwell (and aiding and abetting in White's criminal harassment, stalking of targets, etc.) it seems a little strange that he is only now seeing Tim White for what he is. But then, Adachi isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer. Adachi and White: Two peas in a pod.]

Who Is Barbara Hartwell?
(You can contact the sender at the following e-mail address: kyraspycat@gmail)

[BHP: Again, the e-mail address belongs to Todd Fahey, the coward who hides behind many aliases to harass, libel and engage in cyber-stalking.]

I told this fellow that I have zero interest in Hartwell or anything she has to say or write about, including whatever slam pieces she might make up about me. Tim White, posing under the name of "Patrick Alexander," tried to sucker me into responding to a slam piece that Hartwell wrote about me a few months ago. I not only had zero interest in reading it, but I had no intention of responding to it, and giving that slithering CIA snake some readers that she could not otherwise obtain on her own. I checked her internet traffic stats at alexa.com and found that she had an overall internet ranking of somewhere around 7 million; that works out to roughly 3 readers a week.

[BHP: If Adachi has "zero interest" in Barbara Hartwell, why then does he continue to spend so much time libeling me? Why continue with his "current news" posts?

3 readers a week? Totally absurd. I have to wonder how that could be possible, considering the fact that the "profile views" alone (per day, not per week) number many more than that. And the readers would have to visit the site before they could click on the link to the "profile".

Can't Adachi think up something more believable than this?]

I've already invested enough time between the years 2000-2006 exposing Barbara Hartwell and her fellow mind controlled, CIA smear artists like Stew Webb, who were doing their best to discredit a real constitutional patriot and a genuine American by the name of Ted L. Gunderson, former FBI Los Angeles Bureau Chief.

Ultimately, Hartwell's outrageous lies finally caught up with her and those many internet sites, like Rumor Mill News, which used to routinely post her garbage, fell away like so many leaves in a November gale in New England.

[BHP: Rumor Mill News is a New Age/government disinfo site, just like Educate- Yourself. And there were no "outrageous lies" involved, at least not coming from me. I resigned my posting privileges on RMN due to selective censorship by the editor, Rayelan Allan. She then tried to cover herself by accusing me of being CIA!...just like Ken Adachi. How tiresome it gets...]

Today, Hartwell desperately seeks readers for her concocted swill so she can justify her pathetic life as a CIA tool of disinformation and rancor (I could say as much about Tim White), but the readers are no longer there, despite her efforts to make up ever greater fantasies about Ted Gunderson, or me, or anyone else who has a reputation on the internet that she can parasitize and in so doing, elevate herself from the sewer which she normally inhabits.

[BHP: Adachi has no idea how many readers I have. As usual this stooge just parrots what he's told to say. But my writings are far from fantasies, especially regarding Ted Gunderson and his stooge, Ken Adachi. And if Adachi wants to talk about a sewer, he needs to look closer to home. He promotes porno-mongers, sex predators, stalkers, identity thieves, blackmailers...the lowest criminal scum on the face of the earth. Who does Adachi think is buying into his malicious lies?]

I've had a few people contact me over the years who had sent large sums of money to support freeloader Hartwell, only to have Hartwell do a 180 on them and heap redicule and scorn upon her former benefactors because they began to recognize that she's a pathological liar and deceptionist of the first order. That's what she was trained to do as a two bit MK Ultra mind controlled slave; a role she has played to perfection, so far.
Ken Adachi

BHP: What "people"? Naturally, Adachi doesn't name them. And as usual, Adachi is spreading malicious gossip about what he thinks he knows. Adachi knows nothing. And furthermore, any dealings I have had with people who donated money to me were between me and the donor --and none of busybody Adachi's damned business.

Again, just the usual regurgitated trash from malicious liar Adachi, slinging the same old mud, parroting the same old falsehoods about the "mind controlled slave." It seems this is Adachi's answer for everything. No facts, no truth, no evidence...nothing but the government-sponsored black propaganda he parrots slavishly, year after year.

How could anyone with an ounce of intelligence or discernment take this buffoon seriously?

Same goes for his "sources", especially Tim White and Todd Fahey.

FBI Secrets: An Agent's Expose



Note: I found the link to this book review on ex-FBI agent Geral Sosbee's website.

http://www.sosbeevfbi.com

Geral's astute analysis of FBI/CIA torture and terror campaigns (neutralization) against dissidents gives profound insight as to the brazen evil that we, the targets, are really up against.



Please take the time to peruse World in a Box:

Also, click on the links Geral provides for detailed reports on the tactics used by FBI/CIA terrorists to neutralize targets. Here's just one....

FBI Secrets: An Agent's Expose

by M. Wesley Swearingen, 1994

Reviewed by Jon Roland

Wes Swearingen served as an FBI agent from 1951 until he retired in 1977. During that period he perpetrated or witnessed numerous violations of law by FBI agents and their operatives, heard revealing statements by other agents about their illegal activities, and read files which documented violations of the rights of American citizens.

The activities of FBI agents and their "informers" include warrantless break-ins, theft, fraud, kidnapping, perjury, fabrication of evidence, suborning of witness perjury, and murder. The targets were political dissidents: anyone FBI agents didn't like.

Swearingen details how members of the Black Panthers were murdered by FBI operatives, another was framed for a murder he didn't commit, and still others were prosecuted on trumped up charges.

He does not mention anything about the deaths of John or Robert Kennedy or Martin Luther King, but he describes an agency so deeply involved in criminal activity of every kind as to be capable of causing the deaths of those men and others who have died under mysterious circumstances.

He describes various files on political dissidents, called the "Security Index" and the "Reserve Index", which eventually included about 500,000 names, and which were the persons to be arrested without warrant and taken to detention areas in the event of a national security emergency. For those who are inclined to dismiss such concerns as paranoid, here is supporting evidence, notwithstanding the repeal of authorizing legislation in 1971, which would not stop people like these.

Swearingen provides an insider's view of the COINTELPRO program of suppression of political dissidents, but also tells us that the program continues to this day under another name, apparently without a paper trail.

He paints a picture of an agency riddled with corruption, incompetence, and inefficiency, composed of men who may have once been patriots, but who have been reduced to common criminals, whose crime fighting activities are limited at best and largely for show, with political repression being the primary mission.

Some may suggest that the FBI may have been reformed since Swearingen left the agency in 1977, and no longer does the things he describes. Certainly there have been some reform efforts, particularly during the period Edward Levi was Attorney-General, and we would expect another generation of agents to have taken the place of those Swearingen worked with, but available evidence, including continuing harassment of Wes by his former agency, indicate it has not been reformed at all.

There have been other books by former FBI agents that have told similar tales, such as William Turner, author of _Hoover's FBI: The Men and the Myth_, and books by former agents of the CIA, such as those by Philip Agee, John Stockwell, Victor Marchetti, Frank Snepp, and Ralph McGehee. It seems likely that similar books remain to be written by agents of almost every agency of the U.S. government, revealing them as criminal enterprises and implicating almost every employee as criminal conspirators. Such agents should read this book and begin gathering the evidence they will need to take out with them.

Even Swearingen still speaks with pride of his crimefighting activities, seemingly oblivious to the fact that there is no constitutional authority or federal jurisdiction for statutes against the offenses he was investigating, making enforcement in federal courts itself a criminal violation of the civil rights of the targets, even when they really are bad guys who deserve to be prosecuted under applicable state laws.

The most important thing this book reveals is the mindset of government agents, and the way otherwise good men get corrupted by the system of which they become a part. They are totally ignorant of the principles of constitutional republic government, and willing to do whatever works, regardless of legality. Their arrogance was revealed in a statement by Special Agent Joseph G. Deegan in 1977: "We are the only ones who know what is good for the country, and we are the only ones who can do anything about it." After reading this book and others, it is clear that this statement reflects a dangerous delusion of grandeur.
Anyone who is involved in any kind of politically significant activity, or who is concerned about the future of this country, needs to read this book to learn how government agents operate and how citizens can defend themselves against them, both in court and in the field. These agents are not very effective, and people should not be awed by them. Standing up to them works if one exercises a few simple precautions, such as taping all encounters and having witnesses around at all times. Going armed at all times may not be a bad idea, either.

COINTELPRO: Destroying Lives One by One



Put COINTELPRO in any search engine and be prepared to step into a minefield of government-sponsored disinformation. Most of what is published on COINTELPRO -- especially accusations of who is involved-- is false. Meanwhile, the real perpetrators hide behind the smokescreens they have created to cover their tracks.

Nonetheless, the truth about COINTELPRO is out there, and may be found by those with the determination and discernment necessary to cut through the web of lies on which these operations are based.

Quite simply, disinformation is the foremost specialty of COINTELPRO. COINTELPRO is comprised of liars, deceivers, manipulators, plotting against anyone (whether groups or individuals) deemed a threat to the totaliatarian one-world government agenda of the powers-that-be. That is, all Defenders of Liberty, all Messengers of Truth, all who would stand up against tyranny and injustice. If you are one of the good guys, take heed. You could be next to be targeted.

And once you take a closer look at what's out there on the Internet, you will discover that most of the disinformation is being promoted not by bona fide government agents/operatives, but rather by ambitious amateurs, G-Man wannabes, intelligence/law enforcement groupies, merely stooges seeking attention and approval. All of these individuals --the ones promoting the government disinformation-- are being exploited, some wittingly, others unwittingly. No matter, the damages to the targets are extreme, severe and often irreparable.

These COINTELPRO minions, these stooges and useful idiots, put up message boards, chat rooms and even large commercial websites where they peddle their conspiracy theories, where they gossip and argue among themselves about the real targets of the COINTELPRO libel/slander campaigns --almost invariably people they do not know. And most often, the very people who have been targeted (the good guys) are accused by the useful idiots of being COINTELPRO.

But the calculated dissemination of disinformation is not the goal, not the end game, rather, only a means to an end. And to the criminal cabal running this shadowy operation, there is no doubt that, as in all other things in their twisted worldview, "the end justifies the means."

The goal of COINTELPRO? To neutralize their targets. Which means to destroy every aspect of our lives, piece by piece, by any and all means available to the perpetrators.

The useful idiots purporting to "expose" COINTELPRO don't know what they're talking about. They have no background or training in intelligence work. They are not investigators (though some will claim to be), nor do they even have access to the facts of any case they claim to have knowlege of. They are simply parroting what they've heard or read from the REAL COINTELPRO operatives who are pulling the strings, calling the shots, putting in the fix --and who have engineered the operations of persecution, harassment and calumny against the targets. It is absolutely diabolical...and they are getting away with it.

For those who want a basic overview of COINTELPRO, here is one which seems to come from an unbiased source. I can't vouch for it, but it looks pretty straightforward to me.

COINTELPRO (for Counter Intelligence Program) was a set of programs commenced by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 1956 and officially terminated in 1971. COINTELPRO included programs variously named Espionage COINTELPRO; New Left COINTELPRO; Disruption of White Hate Groups (targeting the Ku Klux Klan); Communist Party, USA COINTELPRO; Black Extremists COINTELPRO; and the Socialist Workers' Party Disruption Program. Although these were "counterintelligence" programs by name, the FBI did not consider most of these groups to be engaged in intelligence activities (e.g., spying for the Soviet Union). 

Rather, it deemed their political activities dangerous, and assumed that various court decisions had made it impossible to control them by nonsecret, legal means (e.g., arrests for illegal acts). COINTELPRO began by targeting the Communist Party, but quickly expanded to include other groups. The FBI's "black extremist" category included not only the Black Panthers but the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and its president, Martin Luther King, Jr., the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, and other civil rights groups of the 1950s and 1960s. COINTELPRO also targeted groups opposed to the Vietnam War.


COINTELPRO remained secret until a large number of documents were stolen from the FBI office in the town of Media, Pennsylvania, in 1971. Lawsuits brought by political groups who believed that they were being observed and disrupted by the FBI soon produced other COINTELPRO-related documents. In 1975, a Senate committee—the Select Committee to Study Governmental Relations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, better known as the Church Committee after its chair, Senator Frank Church (D, Idaho)—was appointed to investigate COINTELPRO and other domestic espionage and disruption programs conducted by the FBI, the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Agency, Army intelligence, and the Internal Revenue Service. 

The Church Committee concluded in 1976 that "the domestic activities of the intelligence community at times violated specific statutory prohibitions and infringed the constitutional rights of American citizens," and stated that the FBI had gathered information by illegal means, disseminated that information illegally, and otherwise violated the law in its efforts to disrupt political activities that it considered subversive. The committee's report stated that "the abusive techniques used by the FBI in COINTELPRO from 1956 to 1971 included violations of both federal and state statutes prohibiting mail fraud, wire fraud, incitement to violence, sending obscene material through the mail, and extortion. More fundamentally, the harassment of innocent citizens engaged in lawful forms of political expression did serious injury to the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of speech and the right of the people to assemble peaceably and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

Disruption techniques used by the FBI during COINTELPRO, according to the findings of the Church Committee, included burglaries; illegal opening and photographing of first-class mail; planting of forged documents to make it appear that individuals were government informants; anonymous letters to spouses, designed to break up marriages; secretly communicating with employers in order to get individuals fired; planting of news articles and editorials (covertly authored by FBI agents) in U.S. magazines and newspapers; anonymous letters containing false statements designed to encourage violence between street gangs and the Black Panthers; anonymous letters denouncing Catholic priests who allowed their churches to be used for Black Panther breakfasts sent to their bishops; requests for selective tax audits; encouragement of violent tactics by paid FBI informants posing as members of antiwar groups in order to discredit those groups; and others.

Now, let's take a look at some of the perpetrators of these operations, both agents/operatives and their minions/stooges.

Excerpt from useful idiot Pam Schuffert, published on Educate-Yourself by Gunderson PR shill, Ken Adachi

Pam Schuffert Endorses Ex-FBI Agent Ted Gunderson

"TED GUNDERSON, former FBI, is a fine man of integrity, who has roused the wrath of the corrupt elements of the FBI by exposing corruption in the system, the child sex/porn rings in the FBI, and the satanism as well. This makes GUNDERSON, in turn, a TARGET for FBI COINTELPRO slander and libel manufactured him to discredit his excellent work exposing them.

Sadly, both STEW WEBB and BARBARA HARTWELL have both proven to be COINTELPRO by writing and publishing the libelous, fictional and untrue "reporting" against both Gunderson, myself and many other truth-tellers on the scene."

Now, some Truth to counteract the lies and calumny of Schuffert and Adachi...

Gunderson's Published Proposal to Deploy COINTELPRO Tactics
Excerpt from Ted Gunderson's Letter to Larry Flynt

December 21, 1998
Larry Flynt
Flynt Publications

PROPOSAL TO DISCLOSE AND DISRUPT ILLEGAL ACTIVITY OF GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS AND POLITICIANS

I. Counter Intelligence Operation
Organize a select group of trusted, loyal Americans to operate an effective legal counter-intelligence operation. The goal of a counter-intelligence operation is to educate and, in some instances, to disrupt the enemy by mailing anonymous letters to selected individuals and groups in order to create distrust and paranoia. Another goal is to furnish disinformation and create confusion. I was a counter-intelligence expert in the FBI and I am aware of numerous techniques with which to work towards this goal. I wish to emphasize we will not conduct any criminal or illegal activity, nor violate any laws. All activities would be legal. There are other techniques than can be used, in addition to anonymous letters, i.e., telephone calls from public telephones. Disinformation can also be spread on radio and television talk shows.

First, I would say that Gunderson's choice of an accomplice for his operation, the notorious pornographer, publisher of Hustler magazine, has got to be the lowest sleazoid on the planet. Ask yourself, who would want to do business with a low-life like Flynt?

Next, note that Ted Gunderson states that he was "a counter-intelligence expert in the FBI." Really? Then any reasonable person is left to draw the conclusion that Ted Gunderson was COINTELPRO, as that is the primary counter-intelligence operation in the FBI.

And now, he is looking to recruit more accomplices for his "legal" counter-intelligence operation.

"A select group of trusted, loyal Americans..." Who could these "loyal Americans" be?

Let's start with some known associates of Ted L. Gunderson: Ken Adachi; Timothy Patrick White; Larry Lawson; Pamela Schuffert; John DeCamp. There are others, too numerous to mention, but these names will certainly be recognizable to anyone with an interest in the controversy this issue has generated over the past decade.

And for a damning statement, this one can't be beat: "Disinformation can also be spread on radio and television talk shows."

So, Ted Gunderson, in his own words, suggests spreading disinformation! And as many of us targets know, he's done just that, and in spades.

[For the primary example, see the New Age/government disinformation website of Gunderson's PR shill, Ken Adachi.]

Fact is, this operation has been running for a long time. Ted Gunderson, joined by his cronies and amateur recruits (Tim White, Pam Schuffert, Ken Adachi, Larry Lawson et al) have wreaked havoc on the lives of many COINTELPRO targets. And there is no end in sight.....

As far as I can see, this so-called "legal" counter-intelligence operation will continue until the lives of the targets are so far destroyed that there is no hope to repair the damages.

And by the way, there is nothing "legal" about fraud, criminal stalking, identity theft, extortion, criminal harassment, death threats, murder-for hire schemes, inciting violence and terrorism.....this operation is a criminal conspiracy par excellence, rife with most every crime imaginable. Racketeering at its finest.
As for the privacy invasions and the libel/slander campaigns against targets, I guess you might stretch it to say these are "legal". After all, these are civil matters.

And since most of the law enforcement to whom we have reported these crimes refuse to do anything to protect the targets of criminal harassment/stalking and threats of violence and death (which are crimes), or more to the point, to enforce the law, who is going to care that the reputations of decent, legitimate Messengers of Truth and Defenders of Liberty are being destroyed, along with every other area of our lives? Nobody. After all, that is what "neutralization" is all about.

Now for some Truth and a breath of fresh air. Let's hear from another former FBI agent, who happens to be one of the targets of COINTELPRO, a Messenger of Truth and Defender of Liberty.

Comments from ex-FBI agent Geral Sobee

Ted Gunderson (hereinafter referred to as 'gun') recently wrote the following words to my good friend and professional colleague, Barbara Hartwell:

"Do the righteous people of the world a service and, like other slimy creatures, slither back into the hole from which you came.

Ted L Gunderson, FBI-SAC(Ret)"

Sosbee writes:

Such words as quoted above when directed against one of the true and great Defenders of Liberty (Barbara Hartwell) offend all sensitive persons who read them, but especially those of us who know and respect Barbara for her stand against government corruption. Indeed the 'righteous' as you call them reject the use of such descriptions above because no human being merits such a label.

However, gun is steeped in the use of labels, especially those that send good and innocent people to torture chambers, to prisons or to their deaths; gun is an expert by his own proclamation of his credentials (i.e.:SAC) in a) black operations, b) mind games, c) secret agent-provacateur dirty deeds worldwide.

No, gun, you are wrong. The world needs Barbara Hartwell more than you could possibly know/imagine; and as you have sold out to the evil forces of a corrupt government (the United States of America) in return for your petty benefits, you are the one who must someday atone for the atrocities you approved, directed, or condoned against men and women over the past half century.

Come clean, gun, about your knowledge regarding offenses and crimes against Humanity; help save the lives of targeted individuals; and renounce the fascist state that you presently support; then, maybe intelligent and informed people will listen to you.

You dare pretend to show a concern for the people of the United States when in fact you exploit the ignorance and fear of all who listen to you in order to further your own private interests and in order to perpetuate the destructive agenda of the cia and the fbi. The downfall of this country into a fascist state is in part your doing, gun, and you should not be proud of that, no matter how high an office you have attained.

Sosbee writes for the record on April 30, 2005:

gun indicates on his website that he was chief inspector for the fbi in 1973; in such capacity, gun had the responsibility to investigate Sosbee's reports of fbi crimes during that year. Not only did he fail to perform his duties as chief inspector, he continued thereafter to serve in high level positions in the fbi at a time when Sosbee was being harassed for reporting the criminal conduct of numerous fbi agents as set forth in

Ex-FBI agent Geral Sosbee Refutes Malicious Lies from Ken Adachi

Ken Adachi, Liar

Succinctly, Ken Adachi is a malicious liar and a petty fraudster for writing the following statements about Geral Sosbee (regarding Gunderson, I have reason to believe that all statements written about him by my greatest friend, Barbara Hartwell, are true):


Adachi writes: "...Barbara Hartwell's...gets little coverage beyond Gerald Sosbee or Stew Webb or other government-controlled "whistleblower" flunkies...You can find most of my articles...on my Ted Gunderson page..."

In summary, anyone with the slightest intellectual/spiritual discernment can see what is really going on here.


Don't be fooled. Boycott these COINTELPRO operatives and their minions and stooges. Better yet, do your own unbiased research and then EXPOSE your findings.

Are you a Messenger of Truth? A Defender of Liberty?

Stop COINTELPRO before it stops you.

Police Abuse and Cover Ups: Does Anybody Care?



Note: Investigative journalist Janet Phelan has been targeted for harassment and political persecution. I first looked into her case in 2006, when she contacted me regarding criminal harassment by predicate felon/career criminal Timothy Patrick White, whom I had exposed in my reports beginning in 2001.


Timothy White is a stool pigeon/snitch and government stooge who made a deal with corrupt law enforcement/FBI agents to get out of jail in 2002, after a felony conviction for drug trafficking.


Though he is now hiding out in Canada, a fugitive from justice, for years previous, White traveled the country, engaging in criminal harassment and stalking of designated targets, including journalists, government whistleblowers, survivors of black operations, former law enforcement/intelligence personnel --anyone who exposed truthful, factual information about government crimes and corruption.


Over the years, Tim White has harassed, stalked and threatened many such genuine Messengers of Truth and Defenders of Liberty.


But White is not operating alone. As a result of his "deal", he takes directives from other criminals, both former and current government officials. His criminal activities are also aided and abetted by others of his ilk. [See reports on this site for names and details.]


As a target of the criminal conspiracy of which White is a part, I have been investigating White and his accomplices since 2001, ever since Tim White targeted me with a death threat.


White is a psychopath who continues his criminal harassment, stalking, and threatening of targets to this day with impunity. Strangely enough, law enforcement officers who have been contacted by the targets (including myself, Janet Phelan and others) for the purpose of making criminal complaints against White, have mostly refused to take action, even in making the most cursory investigation of the activities of this criminal, much less enforcing the law or protecting the rights of the victims/targets.


This, despite the fact that we, those targeted, have furnished law enforcement with a plethora of documented evidence, including various threats signed by White, even death threats!


One of the police departments who refused to take action to stop the criminal harassment/stalking of Janet Phelan by Tim White is in Medford, Oregon.

As documentation, here is an excerpt from an open letter by Janet Phelan, titled No Constitutional Protections, describing only a small fraction of the harassment by Tim White and the authorities' refusal to protect Janet's rights as well as their failure to serve justice.


Below this excerpt is another more recent report written by Janet Phelan, exposing what is clearly a suspicious pattern of behavior by the Medford, Oregon Police Department. It is obvious that Janet Phelan is not the only person to whom constitutional protections and justice are being denied.

Excerpt: Open Letter from Investigative Journalist Janet Phelan: No Constitutional Protections



In the intervening years between what is documented in Exhibit 1 and the recent efforts by the Medford, Oregon Police Department to frame and arrest me, there has been further misconduct by the justice agencies towards me. There exist more court records, in Riverside and in Santa Monica Superior courts, concerning civil issues revealing the continued revocation of my rights under the U.S. Constitution.

For the sake of brevity, I refer you to my application for a Temporary Restraining Order in Spring of 2006 against one Timothy Patrick White, who is an FBI informant.

Parenthetically, White will pop up again, in the Medford situation. Tim White had made a written, signed death threat to me in 2006. While Commissioner Bobbi Tillman of the Santa Monica Superior Court did indeed grant a TRO, it never went into effect because the Denver Police refused to serve him with papers. White then followed me up to Sandpoint, Idaho, two months after I moved there in June of 2006, and began to stalk me. I filed a complaint with the Sandpoint Police, but the DA refused to prosecute.

White has continued to threaten me, by email and allegedly by phone, and has contacted numerous of my work associates, engaging in both threats and defamation of my character. I have reported this to the Medford Police, which resulted in the current situation, which has forced my evacuation of my home and my flight to Canada, for my safety .

The Medford Police have not only failed to protect me, they have issued fake documents and tampered with existing documents, in order to frame a reason to arrest me. As I am a police assault survivor, I consider the actions of the Medford Police not only redolent of failure to protect but also an aggressive move to detain me and further assault me, possibly with fatal consequences. The situation in Medford is summarized in Exhibit 2.


I have come to the disturbing conclusion that I am somehow exempt from normal Constitutional and legal protections. This makes me extraordinarily vulnerable to attack by the legal system, be it by police officers or by revocation of due process, by agents of the justice system. The legal issues I am reporting may be considered violations of Title 18 Section 242 of the U.S. Code, and other legal trespass. I am therefore appealing to the U.S. Department of Justice to take charge and halt this bizarre vendetta.

Internal Affairs: How They Cover up Police Abuse
By Janet Phelan

This article explores the consistency and pervasiveness of systemic cover up of police abuse and misconduct. The article highlights the behavior of the local Medford police department's Internal Affairs.

Joni Hickey first noticed the car weaving in and out of traffic driving “way too fast,” she recalls. The vehicle pulled up close behind her, then gunned its motor and screeched to the side, speeding past her. She realized, to her alarm, that this was a Medford Police vehicle.

“We were really far from Medford,” she remembers. “We were getting close to Eugene.” The car was not sounding its siren, and she was concerned about the recklessness of its driver. She made a report to the Medford Police Department and was put in touch with Internal Affairs. The responding Sergeant told her that the officer was on his way to a training session around Eugene, and had thanked her for bringing the reckless behavior to the proper attention. He assured her that the officer would be disciplined.

In fact, the Internal Affairs summary concerning this matter, filed under IA # 2005-061, reveals that IA found Ms. Hickey’s complaint to be “Not Sustained.” There was no discipline or repercussions to the officer who so alarmed her on that night in 2005. Hickey says she received a letter from the Medford Police Department, advising her that the officer would be disciplined.

Internal Affairs is ostensibly the internal investigatory body of local police departments. If a party should have an issue with the behavior of an officer of the law, Internal Affairs is mandated to investigate and, should the complaint be found to have merit, to suggest the appropriate remedy for officer misconduct. However, a review of Medford Police Department Internal Affairs summaries from 2005 to the present reveals a disturbing pattern in the handling of these complaints. Time and time again, reports from citizens are being dishonored. Either no investigation is conducted by IA, or the investigation is done in a manner such that witness statements are ignored or altered. Of great concern is that the complaining party is often assured that his grievances have been addressed, when the internal memos state they have not. In a number of cases, the Internal Summaries of the IA reports do not even accurately record the initial complaint.

According to Sgt. Brett Johnson of Internal Affairs, MPD, these internal records are not available to members of the public. This reporter has nevertheless received a stack of these IA summaries, and in the process of contacting the complainants, discovered that the Medford Police seem to be operating from a custom and policy of non-investigation, while informing the public otherwise.

Amy Cushing contacted Medford Police Department’s Internal Affairs after an officer began to stalk her. She remembers contacting IA twice in a two month period concerning the same officer. The first complaint revolved around a traffic stop, where she was pulled over for purportedly speeding in a construction zone. In an interview in October of 2008, Cushing reported that the officer made a number of snide and insulting comments during her contact with him. She remembers him asking her age. When she told him that she was twenty-seven, he said, “You mean, thirty-seven?” She contacted IA, and gave the department the name of the party in her car, who witnessed the incident. According to Cushing, her friend was never contacted.

Three weeks later, the same officer was sitting in front of her school when she got out. He pulled her over for “pulling out of the parking lot too fast. “ He also said she pulled into a merge lane without signaling. Cushing said that when the officer left the scene, he pulled into the same lane without signaling. She made a second complaint to IA.

The very next night, she reported that he was again in the school parking lot. She remembers sitting in the lot for several hours, declining to leave until he did.

She began to be concerned that the officer was stalking her. Soon after, he pulled her over again. This time, she was on a motorcycle. The reason for the stop, according to the officer, was that he was concerned that she was wearing high heels.

While Cushing insists she reported the officer twice, the IA summaries only list one complaint from Cushing, which was not sustained. While the IA summary states that Cushing was notified of the disposition of her complaint, she insists she was not. She also expressed concern that the witness to the incidents was never contacted by IA.

Pastor Lee Gregory of the Medford Neighborhood Church was surprised to find that his complaint to IA was listed as “unfounded” by the department. Gregory, who has been the pastor at the church for eighteen years, was leaving the church one day when he witnessed a vehicle slide off the road and crash into a concrete irrigation bunker. He reported that two people got out of the car, a man and a woman. He stated that the driver, a man, was “screaming obscenities “ at his female passenger. According to Gregory, the man then struck the woman.

Gregory told them to stop. He then called 911. As he was talking to dispatch, the two got back into the car and backed up about fifty yards. At that point, recalls Gregory, the man and woman jumped out of the car and started to run away. The man was yelling threats against the pastor. Gregory stated he was concerned for the 60 children in day care at his church, as well as for the safety of himself and others.

911 told him that the police were on their way and had already received another call concerning this incident.

Shortly thereafter, Gregory left the church on his motorcycle. He was surprised to notice the driver and passenger walking toward the car they had previously abandoned. There were no police officers to be seen.
 

He drove to the Medford Police Department. He waited in the lobby until the Sergeant was able to come out to speak with him.

“The Sergeant was rude and argumentative,” he recalls. Gregory then wrote a letter to the mayor. The letter, which is dated May 7, 2007, states his intent is to “provide information and help emergency services respond with improvement.” While reviewing the events, he summarizes his concerns: that dispatch had failed to inform the responding officer that there had been a collision and that there had been threats made to citizens of Medford. Dispatch had told the responding officers only that this was a “domestic dispute,” and the officers at the scene did not address the accident or the threats. In conversation with this reporter, Pastor Gregory also expressed concern as to why the Internal Affairs contact, a Sergeant at the Medford Police Department, responded to him in the manner he did. As a result of the letter, he was contacted by both the Chief of Police and a detective. He was then given assurance that his concerns would be addressed. In an interview in October of 2008, Gregory was surprised to find that Internal Affairs listed his complaint as unfounded.

Others have reported Medford Police officers engaged in conduct which they found personally threatening. Internal Affairs has consistently denied the validity of these reports, as well. Michael Piels, a local Certified Public Accountant and Medford business owner, recalls contacting Internal Affairs following a traffic stop. Piels was driving an electric vehicle which is licensed by the city. He remembers being stopped by a motorcycle cop, who told him he was driving “a golf cart.” When Piels told him that the vehicle was properly licensed, he reported that the officer became threatening. He remembers seeing the officer begin to pat his gun. At that point, Piels instructed him to just “write the citation.” Recounting the incident in an interview this last November, Piels stated that he found the officer’s demeanor to be threatening and he “didn’t want to talk to him anymore.” The citation was eventually overturned.

Piels went ahead and wrote to the Chief of Police, objecting to the threatening demeanor of the officer. He remembers getting a positive response from the responding officers, whom he believed were both a lieutenant as well as a sergeant with the MPD. He recalls being asked what he thought the appropriate remedy should be. He responded that he believed that the officer should be offered counseling, and recalls that this was agreed on by the ranking officers. Piels was taken aback when informed by this reporter that his complaint was also not upheld.

Some of the Internal Affairs summaries simply misreport the circumstances surrounding alleged officer misconduct, and do so to the benefit of the officers. When Monique Madison came home from a business trip, she learned that her high school age daughter had been stopped by a MPD officer, and the car she was in had been towed. The reason given was that her daughter was driving with someone who was underage. When Madison went to the towing yard to pick up the vehicle, she was alarmed to hear what the towing yard worker had to say.

Madison remembers that the worker at the tow yard was nervous and wanted to talk with her outside. He told her that the officer had made statements to him about Madison’s daughter that she felt put her teenager at risk. The officer had told the tow truck driver that the daughter had propositioned him, in order to deter the officer from writing the ticket. He also told the tow truck driver that the daughter was home alone, as her mother was out of the area. Besides the obvious slur to her daughter’s reputation, this could have put her daughter at risk, should the driver have been “unscrupulous.”

The Internal Affairs summary, however, reports that the driver had assured Internal Affairs that no denigrating comment had been made. Madison does not believe the driver was ever contacted by IA.

Brad Wooster’s report to Internal Affairs revolved around an officer, Scott Clauson, whom Wooster alleges attempted to coerce him to make false statements at the time of a crime arrest. The police claimed that his father had intentionally passed a counterfeit bill at a local bank. The case went to court and Merle Wooster was found not guilty. In the course of the arrest, Brad Wooster stated that Clauson tried to get him to turn against his father, and to make statements that his father had purposely intended to defraud the bank. When Brad Wooster refused to do so, he remembers Clauson reading back his notes of the interview, which implicated the son as well as the father in a conspiracy to pass the false note. Brad also observed Clauson using excessive force against his father, who is a Vietnam vet with no criminal record. He was also concerned that Clauson wrote down that Merle was “sleeping in a truck” in a city park; in other words, homeless. Clauson’s report does in fact state this, which turned out to be untrue.

The IA summary finds Brad Wooster’s complaint to be not sustained. Brad wrote to Mayor Wheeler about instances of continuing police harassment. The Mayor responded with a letter assuring Brad that the matter would be forwarded to the Communications Advisory Committee. Peculiarly, the letter from Mayor Wheeler is undated; however, it references a complaint filed by Brad Wooster in February of 2008, detailing his allegations of a continuing harassment by the local police.

A record of CAC review of the Wooster matter could not be found. The videos of the April, 2008 and July meetings of the CAC never mentioned the Wooster complaint and at the time of going to press, the minutes from April and July were not posted on the City’s website. Neither the chairman of CAC, Michael Torguson nor the City Manager responded to queries as to whether CAC had ever reviewed this case, and Mayor Wheeler could not be reached for comment. Merle Wooster states that he was not contacted by CAC. He remembers, instead, receiving a phone call from a deputy with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s deputy told him that Brad was “pathological” and that no investigation would be done on the allegations. The Sheriff’s office did not respond to queries as to why the County got involved in a City police matter.

The Woosters then received a letter from MPD Sergeant Mike Budreau, who stated that the listing of Brad’s complaint had been changed from “unsustained” to “unfounded.” Budreau wrote that the “correct finding is unfounded due to the lack of factual basis,” thereby negating in totality Brad Wooster’s concerns.

However, Officer Scott Clauson’s police report of the incident (CASE #05-16518) does state that Brad had implicated his father in the crime, and contains the highly damning statement that “He (Brad) advised approximately one week ago his dad told him he had obtained a ‘fake’ $100 bill. …Bradley said he knew his dad was going to try and deposit the bill at the bank on this date…” This does confirm Brad Wooster’s complaint that Clauson had written down that Brad had implicated his father. Interestingly enough, when Scott Clauson was on the stand during Merle Wooster’s trial, he made no mention that Brad had made any such statement implying intention on the part of his father. Brad recalls that the responding sergeant at Internal Affairs denied that excessive force was used, and then asked leading questions, attempting to maneuver Brad towards incriminating himself or his father.

Deputy Chief Tim George said he would research the case and get back to this reporter. At the time of going to press, he has not responded to the questions tendered to him.

Dianne Hearth did report a positive contact with Internal Affairs. She had found an arrow behind her house, which she believed was shot into her backyard from the street. She did not feel that the responding officer took this seriously enough, so she contacted her friend and fellow Rotarian, Bob Strosser. Strosser, who sits on the City Council, is a former police officer.

Strosser made sure that the problem was addressed, stated Hearth. Her complaint against the officer was listed as Sustained. In the stack of IA summaries in my possession, Hearth’s complaint was the only one made by a citizen (non-police) that was listed as Sustained. Parenthetically, all officer complaints (by an officer about an officer) received by this reporter were listed as Sustained.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, one complainant had this to say, “We are all humans. We all make mistakes. But I think these officers have a ‘God’ complex.” She had contacted Internal Affairs stating she had been assaulted by an officer who showed up to resolve a domestic complaint. Her estranged husband had struck her daughter, prior to her calling the police. When the police showed up, she said that one of the officers “laid hands on her” and twisted her arm, painfully. The IA summary, however, makes no mention of the assault upon her or her daughter, stating only that the issue concerned a property dispute. She reports her contact with Internal Affairs to be quite unsatisfactory. “The Sergeant was very unpleasant,” she recalls. “He told me that I was being irrational and that he understood why the officer did what he did to me.”

“They watch each others’ backs,” she said. “I know there are good cops out there. I just don’t want any involvement with police anymore. I feel they can do or say whatever they want and get away with it.”

Writing before his father’s trial, Brad Wooster, who is medically disabled and dependent on his father’s assistance, made an impassioned plea for help: “I’m terrified and I want to do something to save him, but I’m not smart enough ….It appears that everyone involved who would be able to stop this from happening would benefit from my father’s conviction, whether he’s guilty or not. There is no incentive for any person or institution charged with the task of protecting people from police...to do anything. Nobody seems to care. I need to know how to make people care."
