Investigative journalist Sherri Kane has written a series of articles exposing a criminal network comprised of corrupt government operatives and their minions. These are the same people who have been persecuting me for the past decade, through libel/slander campaigns meant to discredit my work; threats of lawsuits, as well as threats on my life; monstrous invasions of privacy; harassment and stalking. And these are only among the overt tactics I have exposed; there were plenty of covert operations as well, some of which I have chosen not to make public --at least not yet-- and some of which I may never divulge.
The goal of these criminals is to silence me --one way or another. And I am just one among many government whistleblowers, journalists, and patriot activists who have been targeted for these neutralization campaigns.
From my observations, over a period of many years, there are few journalists who are willing to tackle the controlled opposition, that is, those posing as "Patriot Heroes", who have become leaders and celebrities in various "truth" movements. These individuals have many followers who hang on their every word, and who consider everything they have "exposed" as the gospel truth.
But the truth is, many of these "patriot celebrities" are not only government operatives, but also liars, con artists and scamsters; as well as being overtly racist and misogynistic. They stand not for Liberty for All --but only for the select few, namely themselves and their cronies.
I give Sherri Kane much credit for recognizing them for who and what they are, standing up to them, and exposing their evil and their lies. I also appreciate and share her zero tolerance policy for those who would target and assault women and children, both verbally, with their male supremacist rhetoric, and far worse, assaults of a physical and/or sexual nature.

NOTE: Sherri Kane, my dear friend and colleague, passed away in 2021. I have removed the defunct links to her website where she published some of my testimony, including the document given here, a letter from FBI Chief Ted Gunderson, sent to me in 1998, made public for the first time on Sherri's site.
TESTIMONY OF BARBARA HARTWELL RE TED GUNDERSON & DIANA RIVELY
This is my formal statement outlining events which relate to Ted Gunderson's marriage to Diana Rively, widow of Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan.
In the late spring/early summer of 1998, I was living in Woodstock NY. At that time, I had known Ted Gunderson as a personal friend and professional colleague since 1997.
I received a telephone call from Ted, in which he announced, "I got married!" I was surprised by this news, and when I asked, "To whom?", I was told it was Diana Rively. I had heard Ted speak about Diana, but did not know her personally.
Shortly after this call, I received another call from Ted, in which he said Diana wanted to speak with me. According to Diana, Ted had told her quite a bit about me and my background with CIA, and I had a lengthy conversation with her, which was interrupted several times by government agents (who were listening in, as always) cutting the phone lines (she had to call me back more than once), and the usual electronic interference.
This call came from California, where I was informed that Ted was living with Diana and her mother. Diana also told me she had "married" Ted. The relationship was never described to me as anything other than a "marriage", by either Ted or Diana.
About four months later, I received by post a letter from Ted Gunderson. [see document], stating that the marriage did not work out. The next time I spoke with Ted (shortly after receiving the letter) was when he called me from a pay phone in a casino in Las Vegas. At that time, I asked him about the marriage, and to the best of my recollection, he told me the reason it didn't work out was that Diana wouldn't let him get any work done, and was "keeping him up all night", or something along those lines.
My ONLY sources for information about this marriage were the principals, Ted Gunderson and Diana Rively. There were no third party sources involved, at any time.
I broke off my association with Ted Gunderson in 2000, because by that time I had learned that he and his cronies (including John DeCamp) were involved in various criminal activities and I could not in good conscience continue to work with Ted, nor maintain a friendship with him.
I did not publicly expose the information about Ted's marriage to Diana Rively until 2003 (along with other information regarding criminal activities.) At that time, I was a guest on The Floyd Report, a radio program hosted by Jeremy Floyd, aired on Genesis Communications Network (GCN).
Alex Jones interrupted that broadcast, telling Jeremy Floyd that he had to "let go" of his guest, Barbara Hartwell. Jeremy ignored Jones, because it was his program; but Alex Jones pulled the plug on the show himself. Alex Jones had also threatened Jeremy, telling him he could never have anything to do with Barbara Hartwell again. Jeremy Floyd was outraged about this censorship and bullying by Alex Jones, and quit his job at the station the next day.
Since that time, Ted Gunderson has been lying about the marriage to Diana Rively, both publicly and privately, no matter who asks him. He denies any such marriage ever took place.
Ted Gunderson's advocates (such as Alex Jones, Ken Adachi, Doug Millar, Clarence Malcolm, John DeCamp, Tim White) back him up no matter what he says, and have all called Barbara Hartwell a "liar" and much worse.
This lie, denying the marriage to Diana Rively, is only one of many told and widely promoted by Ted Gunderson, about himself, as well as about those who have exposed his many criminal activities (inside and outside of government service).
Gunderson publicly accuses me of being CIA (which I am certain he does not believe), and has been slandering and libeling me for the past decade, in print, on radio and at conferences where he speaks.

LETTER FROM TED GUNDERSON TO BARBARA HARTWELL
NOVEMBER 2, 1998
[This is a transcription of the handwritten letter. See actual letter below.]
Ted Gunderson FBI Senior Special Agent in Charge (Ret.)
P.O. Box 18000-259 Las Vegas, NV 89114
310 364-2280 Fax (702) 650-5674
I miss you --hope all is well.
I was just reminiscing my trip to Ct. when we drank our toast. (a great toast I must say)
The marriage (we really didn't perform a civil ceremony) didn't work out. It only lasted 2 and one half weeks and I left. It would have been a castrophy [catastrophe (?)] to stay there. Nothing against Diana.
I am enclosing my latest intelligence memo. Make copies and distribute them. Doing fine but I'm broke.
Say hello to everyone
