When Silence is Deadly: The Blacklisted Whistleblower

Dictionary definition of blacklist: 
A list of persons who are disapproved of or are to be punished or boycotted
On September 26, I was a guest on The Jenny Hatch Show.  
Jenny first contacted me a few years ago after reading some of the reports on my website and has since become a dear friend. She has told me that the patterns I have outlined and described in detail --of harassment, stalking, libel/slander, threats and general blacklisting of a Target-- were entirely consistent with what had been happening to her, as a result of her activism for Family Sovereignty and freedom of choice in the areas of education, health care and related issues.
In this 45 minute program, we focus on counterintelligence operations against Targets, with an emphasis on the absolute necessity of speaking out against government crimes and corruption, standing up for Liberty and God-given rights, no matter the consequences.
And although Jenny has titled the broadcast, The Barbara Hartwell Story, this story is not unique to me, but rather has universal applications: It is the story of the person from anywhere, from any time, speaking out against tyranny, defending Liberty, fighting for Justice. 
**The high price of speaking out, telling the unadulterated truth, defying tyranny, refusing to compromise principles
**God-given unalienable rights and sovereignty of the Individual vs. enslavement by collectivism
**Leftists/progressives masquerade as do-gooders promoting "peace and love", but are actually violent thugs, tyrants who will enforce their ideologies at the point of a gun
**Tactics used in neutralization campaigns against Targets
**The destruction of the Target's family relationships: estrangement, alienation, abandonment, betrayal
** Fear of the truth spoken by whistleblowers & efforts by family/friends to silence them 
** Financial destitution engendered by campaigns against a Target
**Blacklisting: ostracized, shunned, rejected by conventional institutions of mainstream society, prevented from obtaining basic necessities to sustain life, housing, gainful employment, support systems of family, friends, colleagues
**Web of corruption: government agencies, CIA, FBI, FDA, etc. & Medical Mafia, Big Pharma et al in collusion to target & silence whistleblowers, truth-tellers, political dissidents
** CIA's true history: formed in 1947, with Nazi war criminals, scientists, brought to the U.S. under Project Paperclip
**Function of CIA as propaganda ministry, using mainstream/alternative media shills & liars-for-hire 
I have always employed a policy of scrupulous discretion in deciding how much to expose, what to expose, and the timing of such exposures. When it comes to the bad guys, if they are committing acts of aggression or crimes against persons, are involved in corruption, if they are the enemies of Liberty, if they are promoting lies against decent, honorable, law-abiding persons and/or  disseminating anti-Liberty propaganda, if they are invading the privacy/personal boundaries of others, then I have no concern whatsoever for any damages to them: they have brought it on themselves by their wrongdoing and works of iniquity. Wrongdoers deserve to be exposed, and the populace at large needs to be warned against them. 
As for what I choose NOT to expose, my foremost concerns are: Will the privacy of innocent law-abiding persons be invaded? Will their security be compromised, or their safety endangered? Have they specifically requested that I NOT use their names, or divulge certain information, held in confidence? Will they be harmed in any way as a direct result of my reports? If  the answer to any of these questions is "yes", then on principle, such information will not be included in what I publish, even in cases where it could blow the cover of criminal perps sky-high, or furnish irrefutable evidence against the evildoers.
Also to be considered: Is a particular issue "public" or "private"? I fiercely guard my own privacy, and by the same token, I respect the privacy of others, just as I respect their fundamental rights and liberties.
But to be silent on the vital ISSUES, especially those so profoundly affecting my life, as a government whistleblower, as a Christian, and as a person dedicated to defending Liberty and the God-given rights of all and sundry, would be to negate and betray everything I stand for, all that I believe in. I have never done it, and never will.
On a personal level, some of the most painful and frustrating experiences I have had are related to the efforts of others, including those closest to me, to silence me:
--by making the true nature of my background, my experiences, and the atrocities committed against me and others by the government, a "taboo" subject for "polite society"
--by trying to manipulate me into silence by disapproval, and/or withholding support
--by denying the truth of what I have reported
--by "blaming the victim" (that would be me) of persecution, through criticism based on false perceptions, callous disregard and profound denial
--by aggressively applying pressure, in attempts to force me into compromises
--by attempts to minimize/marginalize my truthful testimony
--by refusing to discuss issues, refusing to listen, blocking of all communications and/or prohibiting communications
None of these efforts to silence me have ever been successful. They have only resulted in alienation (to one degree or another), as well as heartbreak, at least for me. When the people I love most are not willing to acknowledge the truth, a truth I have made every effort to clearly explain, not only in public reports, but in private conversations and communications, by documents, by letters, by every means available to me, then there may be nothing more I can do, except to pray that God will give them a love of the truth, and that they may be delivered from any form of bondage or satanic  strongholds which prevent them from seeing, hearing, knowing, and finally, acknowledging the truth. If a truth cannot be acknowledged, it cannot hold the power to motivate one to take action in defense of Liberty and God-given unalienable rights.
Here follow quotes about silence, in the context of its negative aspects, when employed to discourage, obfuscate, deny, neutralize the truth, and the truth-teller.
In its positive aspect, silence can be a blessing, as in the peace of silence or spiritual contemplation, communing with God. Personally, I enjoy silence, and prefer it to mindless chatter, noise pollution, cacophony, and most often find silence to be healing and restorative. But when silence is used as a weapon, it becomes a deadly denial of truth.
I ask the reader to consider these words, written and spoken by those who know the price of silence, when it would have been far wiser, and ultimately righteous, to speak the truth.

“When truth is replaced by silence,the silence is a lie.”
--Yevgeny Yevtushenko
 “The cruelest lies are often told in silence.” 
--Robert Louis Stevenson, Virginibus Puerisque and Other Papers
“Secrets, silent, stony sit in the dark palaces of both our hearts: secrets weary of their tyranny: tyrants willing to be dethroned.” 
--James Joyce
“At times to be silent is to lie. You will win because you have enough brute force. But you will not convince. For to convince you need to persuade. And in order to persuade you would need what you lack: Reason and Right”
--Miguel de Unamuno
“I was going to die, sooner or later, whether or not I had even spoken myself. My silences had not protected me. Your silences will not protect you.... What are the words you do not yet have? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence? We have been socialized to respect fear more than our own need for language."

"I began to ask each time: "What's the worst that could happen to me if I tell this truth?" Unlike women in other countries, our breaking silence is unlikely to have us jailed, "disappeared" or run off the road at night. Our speaking out will irritate some people, get us called bitchy or hypersensitive and disrupt some dinner parties. And then our speaking out will permit other women to speak, until laws are changed and lives are saved and the world is altered forever."
"Next time, ask: What's the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. Once you start to speak, people will yell at you. They will interrupt you, put you down and suggest it's personal. And the world won't end."
--Audre Lorde
“It is not easy to keep silent when silence is a lie.”
--Victor Hugo
“Now listen, we need to be quiet as mice. No, quieter than that. As quiet"
"Dead mice?" Reynie suggested.
"Perfect," said Kate with an approving nod. "As quiet as dead mice.”
--Trenton Lee Stewart, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma
“It was the same way with silence. This was more than silence. A deaf person can feel vibrations. Here there was nothing to feel.” 
--Madeleine L'Engle, A Wrinkle in Time
“It does not do to rely too much on silent majorities, Evey, for silence is a fragile thing, one loud noise, and it's gone. But the people are so cowed and disorganised. A few might take the opportunity to protest, but it'll just be a voice crying in the wilderness. Noise is relative to the silence preceding it. The more absolute the hush, the more shocking the thunderclap. Our masters have not heard the people's voice for generations, Evey and it is much, much louder than they care to remember.”
--Alan Moore, V for Vendetta
“If you are trading silence or compliance for love, you are being cheated. When acceptance or love is withheld if you reveal secrets, the value of the relationship is just an illusion. Love cannot be earned, bought or traded–only freely given. You are worthy of love that doesn’t require you to protect your abuser or sacrifice yourself.”
--Christina Enevoldsen
“They were silent, humiliated by this return of the defeated, furious at their own silence, but the more it was prolonged the less capable they were of breaking it.”
--Albert Camus, The Adulterous Woman
“Anyone who remains silent in the face of murder is an accomplice to murder. Anyone who does not condemn approves.”
--Zofia Kossak-Szczucka
“I decided it is better to scream. Silence is the real crime against humanity.” 
--Nadezhda Mandelstam, Hope Against Hope
“Better to be a laughing-stock than lose the fort for fear of being one.”
--Rosemary Sutcliff, The Eagle of the North
