Barbara Hartwell Vs. CIA F.A.Q. & Position Statements: PART 2


 
NOTE: Again, due to length, this report will be posted in numbered segments.
 
 
PART 1:
 
 
 
 
There are only two (2) questions given here, along with an anecdote.
 
 
QUESTION:  Aside from what you have exposed publicly about CIA and related government operations, black programs, etc. what are your personal feelings about what they put you through?
 
 
This is a question for which I could never plumb the depths, and would not want to elaborate on, at least not for the public record. This song by Pink Floyd does give some insight into my feelings though, as every time I hear it, I think of the soulless bastards who in their arrogance and hubris, thought they owned me, who for many years had control of so many aspects of my life.
 
 
 
As you look around this room tonight
Settle in your seat and dim the lights
Do you want my blood, do you want my tears
What do you want
What do you want from me
Should I sing until I can't sing any more
Play these strings until my fingers are raw
You're so hard to please
What do you want from me
 
Do you think that I know something you don't know
What do you want from me
If I don't promise you the answers would you go
What do you want from me
Should I stand out in the rain
Do you want me to make a daisy chain for you
I'm not the one you need
What do you want from me
 
You can have anything you want
You can drift, you can dream, even walk on water
Anything you want
 
You can own everything you see
Sell your soul for complete control
Is that really what you need
 
You can lose yourself this night
See inside there is nothing to hide
Turn and face the light
 
What do you want from me
 
 
---Lyrics by David Gilmour, Richard Wright, Polly Samson
 
 
 
QUESTION: What was your family background like?
 
 
This is a question I will answer with caution, and only in general terms. I respect the privacy of my family, and due to the massive libel campaign against Barbara Hartwell, members of my family have also become the Targets of malicious slander/libel and monstrous invasions of privacy. Their names have been defamed; the nature of the family relationships between them and me have been  falsely defined; they have been falsely accused of offenses and crimes they did not commit.
 
Some have passed away (including both of my parents, all of my grandparents and some uncles and aunts), some are still living, and a number of them did (or still do) work for CIA. However, I am the only one among them who has gone public as a CIA whistleblower.
 
This is probably the only regret I have in going public, that my family (and others close to me) have also been damaged. However, there was no other way for me to proceed, and I can only hope they don't attach too much blame to me, that they can some day forgive me, if they haven't already.
 
And I should say up front that in my descriptions and recollections here, I speak strictly for myself. I'm aware that various members of my family may see things in a different light. I believe that the perceptions, memories and viewpoints may differ widely among family members, as well as being influenced by the individual courses of action they chose for themselves, or which were chosen for them, either with their knowledge and permission, or not. 
 
As I've previously stated in my reports, members of my family, on both sides, have been involved in the intelligence community, the military and the legal profession, over the course of generations. They were certainly there from World War 1, World War 2 and the inception of the modern era CIA and its precursor, OSS.
 
Many people have made unwarranted assumptions, based not on anything I have ever said, or written, but apparently only from their subjective perceptions, such as that my family, due to a certain "bloodline", were wealthy.
 
My immediate family were not ever wealthy, far from it, but probably would be defined as "upper middle class" by the general view, though they often travelled in circles of  "the rich and famous", the "Beautiful People", as I ironically and disparagingly call them. Some were "Hollywood  celebrities", actors and musicians, or "Theater People", as I remember calling them. And of course, there were the spooks, the covert operatives, some of whom I later was able to identify as well known, even infamous characters of the black ops world.
 
(I will decline to name any of these individuals, at least in this report.)
 
I did not like these people much, most of my parents' friends (there were a few exceptions) and by the time I got old enough to make my own decisions (at least in parts of my life not controlled by CIA) I refused to participate in their social events or attend their gatherings. In fact, I rebelled against the cultural and social standards set by "polite society". (Not unusual, I suppose, for a young person who resented any form of authority.)
 
There was an inherent snobbery among these people, who believed they were of a certain elite "class", and they would look down on "uneducated" or "working class" people, for no reason other than that was the mindset inculcated from birth.
 
Both my parents were highly educated. Both were professional classical musicians as well. So I grew up with a love of classical music, including opera and ballet, which has stayed with me for my entire life.
 
Since as a young child, I was somewhat sheltered, and had almost no contact with the 'blue collar' segment of society, it took me many years to overcome the elitist attitude of the people who surrounded me, or even to understand how misguided it was. Children form their own conceptions of the world from the world they are brought up in. They think to themselves, this is life, this is the way it is for everyone.
 
"Class" doesn't come from having money or social status. "Class" is not dining at the finest restaurants (which had been my experience for so many years, I took it for granted); attending the most elite functions and dinner parties, knowing what fork to use, what wine to drink; it is not what kind of car you drive (my father drove a Porsche, and later a Lincoln Continental), how expensive and fashionable are your clothes (Brooks Brothers, Hermes, Gucci, etc. etc.) what you wear to the Yacht Club, or where you go for a vacation, or how rich and famous are your friends.
 
Nor is class conferred by your education or how many degrees you hold. Class is certainly not determined by the "bloodline" of your ancestors, and this is about the most idiotic thing I ever heard! But I heard it many times, accompanied by geneology charts, discussions on "superior"  genetics, a "family legacy", and advances in eugenics. Hogwash!
 
By my way of thinking, having "class" is the way you treat others with respect and courtesy. It is having good moral character and refined sensibilites, not just about "the arts", but where they really count. Class is, in the words of Jesus Christ, "loving your neighbor as yourself" --and showing it by your actions. It is also standing up in defense of the downtrodden, and calling out the bad guys, "Nest of vipers"!
 
Aside from the affliction of  being from a "CIA family", and having been recruited into their black programs as a small child, I had the "advantage" (if it could be called that) of being born into an  atmosphere of cultural and intellectual privilege. I would have to say that I was "spoiled" as a child, brought up in the belief that I was "entitled" to the best of everything.
 
I can remember my father admonishing me as a teenager that I should never shop at certain stores. He would rather pay twice the price, than walk into the "wrong" places. 
 
My views have changed drastically, as a result of "the school of hard knocks", once I realized that if I was not willing to go along with the agenda which had been planned for me, there would be no more resources to pay for "the best" available. 
 
As part of the "government program", as it was called by "friends" of the family, certainly a euphemism (which I was unaware of until many years later), I received the first training at home (no, this was not the typical "home-schooling", far from it). I was taught to read and write at the age of three (3).  One thing that stands out in my memory is that I was given a large wooden puzzle of the United States, each piece a separate state, and was made to memorize the locations of states and State Capitols. These "training exercises" and "drills" often took the place of how a normal child would "play".  Aside from "training tools", the only toys I got at my own request were stuffed animals, of which I had a large collection. (Tigers were my favorite, as well as other big cats. The stuffed animals of my childhood are long gone, but over the years I collected more, many of which I still have.)
 
My parents did take me to Central Park (we lived on Central Park West at the time I was born), to the Bronx Zoo, Museum of Natural History, The Cloisters, and other "normal" places of interest to a child.
 
My life was choreographed in such a way that, looking back on it, I never had a chance to be a child, at least not in any normal sense. I was given ballet lessons, music lessons, drawing lessons, horseback riding lessons, etc. not because I requested them, but because that was "the way things were done" in grooming me for my future, which had been "decided" by others.
 
As a child, I had no say, no power to refuse. (Except to occasionally throw a temper tantrum, which was ignored. My parents didn't "punish" me, or discipline me, because, as I later learned, it was part of the child rearing standard for "the government program". Which didn't work out at all well, as far as I was concerned.)
 
I also had archery lessons, fencing lessons, and was trained in martial arts, some of which were obscure systems, as I found out much later when I enrolled in a Black Belt martial arts school.
 
 
ANECDOTE OF GOVERNMENT PERSECUTION
 
 
Here, a story which gives some insight into the way I was treated, once I had broken out of CIA black ops. 
 
I was cited by the sensei at the school where I enrolled for using "unathorized" moves to defeat my opponents. "Where did you learn THAT?", "How did you know to do THAT?" I was careful not to hurt anyone, but I could still win the sparring matches with little effort, even against men twice my size. But then, it is skill that matters, not size. Also, most systems of martial arts are based on knowing how to use what I can only call "non-physical" energies. (But that is beyond the scope of this report.)
 
I had decided to go back into training to earn the Black belt on my own, even though I already had the equivalent, but the belt was never officially issued to me. Typical, because they were intent on keeping me under their control by depriving me of any credit for my accomplishments, even though they were the ones who trained me. This is a common practice, especially under the MK Ultra program. They train their operatives in a variety of disciplines (depending on how they are to be utilized), but then prevent them from getting formal accreditation for what they have learned. "That's classified". And could come back to haunt them.
 
But the government put an end to my continuing martial arts training, with a vengeance. In 1998, while I was training at a dojo in the Hudson Valley area of NY, they sent some of their goons to do their dirty work.  I was out on the floor in a sparring match when a tall muscular military-type guy with a buzz cut walked into the facility. I saw him go straight to the owner of the school, who was standing near the display case in front of the room, and strike up a conversation. The military goon kept looking at me, while keeping up the pretense of his conversation, and I knew "who" he was and why he was there, but could not just walk off the floor, no matter that I wanted to, as that would show disrespect for my teacher.
 
By the time I had changed out of my uniform and came back out of the locker room, the goon had conveniently vanished.  I asked my teacher, Who was that guy talking to Master X? My teacher just shrugged and said, Oh, just someone wanting to know about the classes for his son.
 
(Yeah, right. But my sensei didn't know that, so I let it drop. To this day, I'm not certain about the owner of the school, Master X, and will probably never know...
 
However, I did tell my teacher later on, after the "incident", about my background and previous training. I considered him a trustworthy individual, and he was understanding and sympathetic to my situation.)
 
It was full dark by the time the class ended. Shortly after I got on the road to drive home (about five miles away), I saw the headlights behind me, not close, but from quite a distance back, keeping pace, and knew I was being followed. I also knew that this had something to do with the military goon who had showed up at the dojo.
 
I decided not to go straight home, because even though I was certain they knew where I lived, I didn't want them following me back to my house, which was in a somewhat isolated rural area. And I knew from previous experience that there had to be a team operating, not just the lone military goon.
 
So I took a detour through a small town, rather than continue on the back roads, and thought I would stop at a convenience store and maybe make a phone call to get some backup, if possible. No such luck, I never made it that far. As I pulled up to an intersection at a traffic light, a huge truck came shooting out from a side street and broadsided my vehicle, which was a small foreign car. I managed to get control of the car and pull off the road.
 
As I saw when I got out of the car, there was no doubt, it was "totaled". The entire passenger side was smashed in by the violent impact.  And naturally, I was injured, though there was no blood and I didn't feel it right away, as I was traumatized from the crash and glad to be alive. But mostly, I was mad as hell.
 
There were now two more goons from the "team" at the scene of the "accident" (which was anything but). I found a phone booth on the corner, where I went to call the police. The goons strolled casually over to where I was standing, asking me, "Are you okay?" No, you morons, I am NOT okay, you just destroyed my car and you are completely at fault. What the hell is wrong with you people!
 
(Actually my language was more colorful, but you get the idea...)
 
At this, they actually started to laugh, yukking it up as if this were the most hilarious thing they ever heard and giving each other the "high five".  They never apologized, nor made any admission of fault.
 
When the police showed up, they asked for my driver's license. A cop then said to me, Is this your license? Are you Barbara Hartwell? Of course I am, I replied, Who else would I be? Well, he said, peering at me intently, This license says you were born in 1951, and that can't be right. Believe me, Officer, it is right, just check the photo, and if you don't believe me, call it in.
 
At the time, I was 47 years old, but the Officer kept insisting that I "must be" under 25. He continued on with this argument, until he finally checked it out on the radio. When he came back, he handed me my license and shook his head. Look, it's genetic, I said, and that was the end of the discussion. (Genetic engineering, to be more precise. Thanks to the "enhancement" technology used by the government, which most people would think is "science fiction".)
 
As if I needed this nonsense, harassment by the police, on top of everything else...
 
Fortunately for me, there was a witness to the crash. He came walking over as the police were taking information from me and the two goons. He stated that he had seen everything, and described the event in detail, just as it had happened. He saw the truck come flying out of a side street and crash into my vehicle; he saw how I went skidding across the intersection and finally managed to pull off to the side of the street.
 
And he gave his statement to the officer, making it very clear exactly who was at fault, namely the government goons. (I have often had such an "angel" appear out of nowhere, at times when I most needed help. Sometimes they were human, sometimes not. Praise God!)
 
[Note: I did sue the goons later, and won. However the amount of the award was negligible, and I certainly was not made whole, considering the extreme damages. ]
 
Long story short, they accomplished what they set out to do. I had to suspend my martial arts training, due to a severe injury to my spine. I had only the basic minimal insurance, so I lost the vehicle. Since I couldn't afford to replace it, I was without transportation for almost two years, until an ex-military supporter donated a used vehicle, an old BMW.
 
As for the injuries, I was able to get only a limited amount of treatment, which did not resolve the condition. The system was stacked against me, as usual.
 
Due to lack of treatment, the injuries caused chronic pain and disability, that is, added to the previous injuries inflicted on me in 'arranged' car crashes and other assaults. In 1986, they had engineered another crash, which resulted in spinal injuries, severe head trauma, temporary amnesia, and the permanent loss of the vision in my right eye. In that incident, there is no doubt my life was saved by divine intervention, but that's a story for another time.
 
At present, I am seriously disabled, and suffer from the cumulative damages of these assaults, for which I cannot afford any treatment at all. And though I have letters from two doctors documenting the nature of these disabilities, I am not 'eligible' for disabilty benefits, because I have no official employment history. Nor can I collect social security (same reason).
 
I refuse to give the government any more window of opportunity to do harm. I do not use standard allopathic medical care, nor do I use drugs. In any case, the system does not cover the types of health care I do use (that is, when I can get them) which are only naturopathic, homeopathic, Ancient Chinese medicine, and chiropractic.
 
So, even were I willing to fill out the medical forms, allow the bastards to further invade my life, I still could not get what I need. But then, that was the plan, all along.
 
I do not document all this because I am looking for sympathy. No, but I want it known, I want it on the public record exactly what these evildoers have done, and I hold them accountable, even though I don't expect I will ever get justice --not in this world, anyway.
 
I can only pray that God's swift and terrible justice be visited upon them.
 
*******************
 
Back to the family.
 
Mine was a family who actually gave each other "security clearances" (no, this is not a joke) and if there were a situation where someone was deemed to have breached security, that person's clearance would be downgraded or "revoked". You would ask a question, and the answer might be, "I can neither confirm or deny". Or, "That's classified."
 
It seemed to me that the reason nobody ever trusted one another was because you always wondered, Who do you really work for? Are you my friend, or are you really my enemy? This sounds bizarre, I'm sure, and it took me many years, and much heartbreak, to finally understand these "family dynamics".
 
And no, I still haven't sorted it all out. Maybe I never will. The one thing I know for sure is that I love my family, each and every one (the living, and those who have passed on; the ones I still talk to and those from whom I've been estranged), no matter the heartbreak and hardship which the government fomented in our lives. I forgive them all, and hope they forgive me, including for the damage done to them by me going public.
 
The government, who has only one purpose in mind for their "people", to exploit your talents and skills for their own ends, to use you until they use you up, cares nothing for the lives of those they are utilizing. As for friends and family? Collateral damage, no problem.
 
Just look at the way the government treats its military veterans, most of whom served with honor in their hearts. Many are destitute and/or homeless, many suffer from PTSD, many are driven to suicide. They have been abandoned and betrayed by a government who sent them out to die for a lie. Some of them know it, some are still under the illusion that the government gives a damn.
 
If anyone thinks this is not the worst sort of evil, they need to think again.
 
 
He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why?  Because anger looks to the good of justice.  And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust.
 
-- St. Thomas Aquinas

Letter to U.S. Attorney from Former FBI Agent Geral Sosbee in Support of Dr. Carpenter

 
Geral Sosbee: Champion of Liberty
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
NOTE: I received this letter by e-mail from my dear friend and professional colleague Geral Sosbee. For as long as I have known him, over the past dozen years, he has consistently stood up for those innocent persons targeted for persecution, with no compromises.
 
Geral has reviewed the documents related to this case, as I have, and is outraged, as I am, that Dr. Carpenter is being treated as if she were a criminal, when nothing could be further from the truth, as there is no basis whatsoever for such a charge as "mail and wire fraud".
 
Please, if you care not only about Health Care Freedom, but more importantly, the larger issue of  FREEDOM itself, follow suit and send your own letter in support of Dr. Carpenter.
 
 
Thank you for your consideration.

 Geral Sosbee's Letter to U.S. Attorney
 
 
 
I am writing to you (as Barbara Hartwell has done) as a friend and supporter of Dr. Antonella Carpenter, who is now unlawfully  the target of a Grand Jury Investigation on the false charges of "mail and wire fraud."
 
I fully & intimately understand the illegal actions that are often taken by federal authorities against political Targets generally because I too have been subjected to torture and attempted murder by fbi  assassins with the full participation of DOJ.
 
 
My documentation are available at
 
 
 
 
While I have no expectation that the thugs in power in this country will stop their assaults on me and on Barbara, I truly hope and pray that all such actions against the wonderful  Dr. Carpenter will stop immediately because I realize that the legal requirement of "criminal intent" against an accused is completely lacking in your case against her; she actually  intends to help people in crisis, even paradoxically while your process is intended by criminal  design and inhumane  methodology to destroy her life.
 
 
Finally, I summarize in my human rights work the current state of affairs at  DOJ and FBI, etc., as follows:
 
 
Our leaders have turned on us globally and we are on the front lines of the most epic battle ever conceived under heaven and on earth against evil incarnate wherein ''wicked men ambitious of power'', with hatred of liberty and with an eternal contempt of law seek to murderously enslave all humanity. I am truly honored to have as associates the members of our group who are my fellow soldiers in defense of mankind.

Dear Messrs. Williams & Souders,
 
 
I am writing to you as a friend and supporter of Dr. Antonella Carpenter, who has received a letter from your office stating that she is the target of a Grand Jury Investigation on the charges of  "mail and wire fraud."
 
To my knowledge, according to Dr. Carpenter, no futher information was disclosed as to the specific nature of this allegation.
 
I understand from witnesses that Dr. Carpenter's office was raided by FDA agents on July 11, 2012, accompanied by local police, and that much of her property was seized at that time, including her hardcopy records, computer files, her laser equipment, and a large sum in cash.
 
This raid was accomplished only by deception, whereby the FDA agent falsely claimed to be the "nephew" of a prospective "patient". In other words, the agent lied to Dr. Carpenter. The "patient", whom she spoke to on the telephone, also lied, in presenting false information about her "symptoms" prior to setting up the "appointment" for treatment. 
 
Is this how things are routinely done by your colleagues, sworn to uphold the law, that dishonesty is acceptable, any means to an end? If so, then I have to wonder about your concern for any form of justice, which should be pursued and administered only in accordance with the truth. 
 
As an investigative journalist, and as a person concerned with the issue of health care freedom, I have taken the time, over the past year, to learn a great deal about Dr. Carpenter's method of treatment; to do my own research, and to discuss with her and her associates the series of events which transpired over a period of years, which has now culminated in this Grand Jury Investigation.
 
I wonder if you are aware that Dr. Carpenter has suffered years of persecution, including outrageous calumny of libel, slander, character assassination, defamation; that she has been targeted for extreme forms of harassment, vandalism and threats, by dishonorable and malicious persons intent on shutting down her professional practice and business, Lase Med Inc.
 
I wonder if you have taken the time to make even a cursory review of the information published on Dr. Carpenter's website, which provides a body of scientific evidence on her treatment, what precisely it is, how and why it works, and which includes video tutorials by Dr. Carpenter and testimonials from her patients. Such as: "Dr. Carpenter saved my life."
 
I wonder if you have taken the time to actually contact or interview any of these patients, who have no complaints against Dr. Carpenter, but rather whose gratitude and respect have been clearly stated in their testimonies.
 
I wonder if you are aware that Dr. Carpenter's practice was conducted in full compliance with the laws of the states where her business was located. There were no violations, nor was she at any time cited for such.
 
The issue facing all of us in this country who will stand in defense of our God-given rights is far greater than just this one case. We have the right to choose our own treatments, to make our own decisions about our own lives, and to reject any methods of standard care, such as chemotherapy and radiation, once we have determined for ourselves that they are dangerous and deadly, rather than being any form of cure or healing.
 
And we certainly have the right to stand up in defense of our constitionally protected right to free speech, including about health care and science. Which is precisely what Dr. Carpenter has been doing for many years.
 
I hope that you will consider all these issues in relation to your investigation, which should serve the truth, and which should pursue justice, rather than make a scapegoat of an innocent woman whose work is dedicated to helping people, preventing unnecessary suffering, and saving lives.
 
 
Thank you for your consideration.
 
 
Sincerely,
 
 
Barbara Hartwell

Barbara Hartwell Vs. CIA F. A. Q. & Position Statements: PART 1


 
NOTE: This report will be posted in numbered segments, due to its length.
 
It's a common practice to include a Frequently Asked Questions section on a website. I haven't done this in the past, but decided it might be useful, especially for those who are new readers of my site, or for those who would like to gain a greater understanding of my beliefs, my views, and my  perspective of the issues and topics I cover.
 
As well, there is a plethora of misinformation and disinformation on the World Wide Web, including the most outrageous lies, about Barbara Hartwell (just check any search engine, but Google Gestapo is the worst offender), via the libel/slander campaigns engineered to discredit me and my work, that I find it necessary on a regular basis to set the public record straight.
 
But before I get to the questions, I should provide some background information which places these questions into the proper context.
 
Firstly, the issues I cover, as a journalist in both print and electronic media, are extremely controversial, which anyone who has heard my radio broadcasts, or taken even a cursory glance at the titles of my reports may easily see. And although my reports are written for the general public, my reading audience is comprised mostly of  those with a "special interest" in these issues, which spans the entire spectrum --from those like me, who are involved in investigations and research of  "conspiracies" and/or who have been Targets, Victims or Survivors of conspiracies (including government black operations) --to those involved in crimes, corruption and coverups, namely those perpetrating the conspiracies, most of whom are government agents and their minions and stooges.
 
 
Most of what I cover in my reports and radio broadcasts concerns conspiracies, of one kind or another.
 
 
Merriam-Webster Dictionary
 
 
 
 
Excerpt from encylopedia:
 
 
Agreement between two or more persons to commit an unlawful act or to accomplish a lawful end by unlawful means. Some U.S. states require an overt act in addition to the agreement to constitute conspiracy. Individual conspirators need not even know of the existence or the identity of all other conspirators. In a chain conspiracy the parties act separately and successively (as in distributing narcotics). A civil conspiracy is not prosecuted as a crime but forms the grounds for a lawsuit.
 
 
Since it is rare that there is just one "lone gunman" or lone evildoer perpetrating any given offense, civil or criminal, therefore it is the conspiracy itself that is the main focus of my work; nonetheless, it is the individual conspirators who are the subjects of my investigations.
 
It is my policy to expose the conspirators and their accomplices by name, from the lowest hirelings, lackeys and stooges, to the middlemen, right up the chain of command to the Criminal Kingpins. Information cannot possibly be useful, or hold credibility, if the expositor does not name the names, at least in those cases where the identities have been established via documented evidence. It is also very important to me that the perps are held accountable for their offenses, at the very least, if only in generating outrage in the court of public opinion. 
 
In many cases of perps exposed in my reports, I myself and/or those in my family and/or my friends are the Targets or Victims of the civil and/or criminal offenses. It should be understood that I write most of these reports as part of an archive of documentation for the public record, not as "news stories".  The purpose of this site is mainly to focus on exposing government conspiracies, not to "report the news."
 
And in the reports where crimes against my family or friends are exposed, I go to great lengths to protect their privacy, and never divulge information given to me in confidence, unless/until I receive permission to make it public.
 
I generally avoid using "confidential sources" whose names are never revealed. Personally, when I hear or read something, where the reading/listening audience is told it is "from a source", it is meaningless to me. A "source"? What source? Mickey Mouse? Donald Duck? The Man in the Moon?
 
I don't attribute credibility to unnamed "inside sources", and dismiss most of such information as garbage, being disseminated for an agenda. Unless I see names, verifiable facts, backed by some form of evidence, I'm not buying it, and I don't think anyone with any discernment will either.
 
And even though much of my written material describes the events, circumstances and experiences of my own life, which makes it autobiographical in one sense, my purpose is not to "tell my story", as many people have assumed. "My story" is just one thread woven into a much larger tapestry; if exposing some of what has happened to me as a Target/Victim of government conspiracies adds to the larger body of evidence, if it sheds light on the institutionalized atrocities the perpetrators are hell-bent on covering up, then it has served its purpose, as far as I am concerned.
 
The most important issues to me are DEFENDING LIBERTY & GOD-GIVEN RIGHTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL; exposing criminals with a view to putting them out of business; and seeking justice, not just for myself, but for every innocent person who has been targeted.
 
Of course there are always the curiosity-seekers surfing the Internet, who don't seriously concern themselves with these issues, but may just be looking for some entertainment --and there's no shortage of that on my website, considering some of the bizarre and outlandish characters who are exposed in my reports. Same goes for my radio broadcasts, where I often can't help myself  but laugh and make fun of the idiocy of some of the perps, shills and propagandists.
 
But I am not a writer of fiction, and despite any "entertainment value" or comic relief which surfaces, I take the issues seriously, and my purpose is mainly to provide factual, accurate  information which is useful, educational and most important of all, which encourages others to stand up for their rights and liberties --to take action rather than just hanging out as an armchair philosopher, weekend warrior or keyboard commando --which unfortunately describes most of those "bloggers" (how I hate that word!) who populate the Internet. They are not journalists, not activists, not defenders of Liberty or messengers of Truth, but people with time on their hands, seeking some excitement or public attention.
 
As I have stated repeatedly in notices on this website, the material posted here is for INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY. I do not solicit "feedback", in the form of opinions, suggestions, comments or questions from the readers, nor do I have a public e-mail address. My experience, when I did have a public e-mail address (1995-2003), was that I was inundated with a volume of e-mail from readers which I did not have time even to read, much less answer.  And though most of the e-mails were benign, I do not enjoy receiving hate mail, nor wish to subject myself to harassing messages. 
 
All and sundry are free to read my website, and if they choose to comment publicly, on another site or message board, they are free to do so. Likewise, I am free to refute any lies they post, to correct errors, or to counter any libel or slander with the truth and the facts. I hold any and all such offenders accountable, always. But due to the sheer volume of such false information in connection with my name, whether from the government-sponsored libel campaigns, or that spawned by ignorance and/or malice, I ignore much of what is out there, most of which never comes to my attention. 
 
As for threats, keeping my e-mail address private has taken care of that problem. Most criminals will not take the risk of mailing a hardcopy threat by post, even anonymously.  Regarding previous threats by e-mail, (as well as those posted on public message boards), the perps have all been reported to the authorities, and their threats have been documented, their names exposed, on this website. 
 
 
Now, to the issue of questions.  Generally speaking, my policy on questions is that if the readers don't find answers to the specific questions they may have from the material which is available  here, published on my website, then they are not going to get the answers --at least not from me. To that end, I hope that this report will provide some of the information which answers those questions and which clarifies my position on various issues. 
 
 
 
DEFENDING PRIVACY AGAINST A SOCIETY OF BUSYBODIES
 
 
As my longtime regular readers will certainly know, one of my most important issues is THE RIGHT TO PRIVACY. Invasions of privacy, and extreme disrespect for my personal boundaries, not only by the government, but also by busybodies, have been the bane of my existence, more than any other form of offense. 
 
Another thing about questions from readers (judging from past experience) is that they are all too often of an intrusive personal nature. As I've often stated in my writings, just because I have a public website, it does not mean that my private life is fair game for all and sundry. My life is NOT an open book and I fiercely defend my privacy.
 
I am continually amazed at what has become an almost complete disregard for privacy in this society, especially when it comes to the Internet "culture". People use facebook (a government surveillance operation, in case you didn't know) for personal communications with their "friends", most of whom they hardly know, in the false belief that anything they write is "private"?  I guess that's fine for those who don't mind every detail of their lives memorialized in government data banks.
 
Then, there are the cell phones, carried and used constantly, even obsessively, by people who apparently don't give a second thought to putting their private business "in the street" --literally!  I see --and unfortunately, hear them-- all the time, strolling down a public thoroughfare, cell phone stuck to the side of the head, discussing intimate details of their lives, and sometimes even carrying on screaming arguments with a party on the other end of the line! (Have they no shame?) 
 
They're standing in the aisles of the supermarket, blocking "traffic", loudly proclaiming their most personal activities, to be overheard by anyone passing by. And even worse, while standing in line at the post office, waiting to be seated at a restaurant, or in other such close quarters: clearly they have not the slightest concern or respect for those of us who are captive audiences of their noise pollution. (What ever happened to common courtesy?)
 
Then, these same folks will repeatedly interrupt a conversation with a person in their company to answer calls on the Almighty Cell Phone, which is rude and inconsiderate, to say the least. Again, especially if you're in the other person's vehicle, you're a captive audience, subjected to hearing longwinded litanies, things you never wanted or needed to know. 
 
As for me, I would rather not use a cell phone unless it is a matter of necessity, in the privacy of my home or car, assuming there is an emergency or urgent message to be relayed. But that's me. Privacy, to me, is an integral part of my liberty --freedom from unwanted intrusions; freedom from the prying eyes and ears of curiosity seekers, snoops, citizen spies and snitches.  This has become a Society of pushy, nosy, loudmouthed Busybodies -- and I will take no part in it!
 
But this situation hasn't happened by accident --no, it has been engineered by the government, for the objective of creating a Surveillance Society. Big Brother is watching you, and once his minions  stick their noses into your private business, they will exploit any information they can get to ratchet up their control over your life --that is, if you let them.
 
(Why do you think the government is now giving away "free" cell phones? That is, to anyone willing to fill out the forms disclosing their private business. Are they really free, or is there an agenda at play here? Like maybe, making certain that everyone is part of their surveillance/control grid of "connections". Just take a look at the obnoxious ads: "Connect" with someone today! "Connect" on facebook, twitter! We all must be"connected"! The busybodies just love that word, "connect". What ever happened to normal use of the English language?)
 
And, as if things couldn't get any worse, with the constant assaults on privacy and lack of respect for personal boundaries? In addition to the intrusive questions, some of the readers of my website actually contacted me by e-mail with unsolicited advice, about all kinds of issues --including amateur "legal", "medical" or "psychological" advice or even, unbelievably, "diagnoses", based on unwarranted assumptions they had made, or erroneous conclusions they jumped to, after reading one of my reports, in which I had mentioned certain issues related to these subjects. Their complete lack of respect, their dearth of even a modicum of "good manners" never failed to generate righteous outrage -- and I would think, time and again, How dare you!
 
The point is, my private life is simply NONE OF ANYONE'S BUSINESS. If I wanted their opinions or suggestions, I would have asked. If I want advice on any matter, I will ask, that is, from the qualified professional(s) of my choice. About this utterly intrusive pathological attitude, I can only say, Mind your own beeswax, busybodies, and leave me alone to tend to mine!
 
Among the most reprehensible offenses committed against me by government operatives and their minions are monstrous invasions of privacy on the Internet. These loathsome characters certainly qualify as busybodies --Busybodies from Hell, that is-- the extremity of their violations is astounding. They have posted my PRIVATE UNLISTED street address, thus not only invading privacy, but compromising my security and endangering my safety. As if this were not bad enough, they have posted photos of my home; then, they solicited crimes against me, including by issuing fraudulent "appeals for donations", stealing my identity, forging the notice, and soliciting the public (read: like-minded lowlife punks) to trespass on my private property to "make a donation". A donation to their crime spree, that is, which cost me thousands of dollars in felony theft and vandalism.
 
[Note to would-be harassers, trespassers and thieves: I no longer live at the address which the criminals have posted all over the Internet. Be on notice that you will now be harassing others and trespassing on someone else's property. And I can only hope you will be apprehended and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.]
 
 
A gossip betrays a confidence, but a trustworthy man keeps a secret.
 
--Proverbs 11:13
 
 
Besides, they get into the habit of being idle and going about from house to house. And not only do they become idlers, but also gossips and busybodies, saying things they ought not to.
 
--1 Timothy 5:13
 
 
 
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: DISCLAIMER
 
 
The list of questions given here are actual questions, those which have been repeatedly asked by readers, listeners to my radio broadcasts, or attendees of my public lectures or seminars. Some are of a general nature, some of a specific nature, and some are of a more personal nature, pertaining to my individual experiences or viewpoints on various subjects.
 
All questions will be answered truthfully, to the best of my ability, based on my personal and/or professional experience and areas of expertise, as well as upon information and belief.  Or, they won't be answered at all. As far as "the truth" goes, there are times when "the truth" is very simply nobody's business. I do not answer intrusive questions asked by those attempting to pry into my personal life. I have the God-given right to privacy. I have the right to keep secrets, as well as the duty to protect confidential and privileged  information, including from other sources. 
 
I am not required to divulge private information to anyone, unless I choose to do so, for my own reasons and at my discretion. Usually these reasons involve "the right to know"; "the need to know", or sometimes just the "benefits of knowing". Otherwise, my philosophy may be summed up in four words: Loose lips sink ships. And unfortunately, I speak from vast experience.
 
Where my friends are concerned, some of whom may be confidants of sensitive personal information, I have made it very clear that unless I publish it on my website, for the public record, any and all information is assumed to be given in confidence, not to be the subject of discussions with any third parties.  This certainly includes confidential information about my health, my finances, my family/personal relationships, as well as other issues which are not meant for public consumption.
 
The last thing I need is someone telling me, "I heard it from So-and-So, through the grapevine..." Worse, the confidential info relayed from one party to another is often inaccurate, at times based on unwarranted assumptions, which then places me in the position of having to correct it, when it was nobody's business in the first place.
 
Thankfully, most of my friends have honored my policy on privacy, and have understood why it is so important to me, which is why I have been able to maintain longterm, solid friendships with them. But there are certain others who have refused to respect my wishes, no matter how many times I have clearly explained my position, and they have stirred up a world of trouble, by relaying private information "through the grapevine" to third parties; by appointing themselves as unwanted intermediaries, "spokespersons" or "matchmakers", without my permission or knowledge, and by meddling in my personal or professional business, falsely thinking that they are "helping" by doing so. Nothing could be further from the truth, nor from what I want or need.
 
Some say they "don't understand" why I am so concerned with privacy. My answer? You don't need to "understand". You only need to SHOW RESPECT for my clearly stated wishes about my privacy and personal boundaries.
 
What if there is a STOP sign at an intersection. The person says, Well, I really don't 'understand' why there is a STOP sign here. So, I'll just blow right on through, no worries. Does it matter if s/he "doesn't understand"?  No, it only matters that s/he chose not to RESPECT the clearly delineated  boundary which would have protected others against damages caused by an act of reckless disregard. 
 
Heartbreaking as it often is, such friendships come to an end, usually because, rather than being willing to even acknowledge the pattern of intrusive, indiscreet and disrespectful behavior, and doing something to rectify it, they will instead attempt to justify their indiscretions, even to the point of becoming angry at me for confronting them about the issue in my attempt to resolve it. Most often, they refuse to discuss it, and seem to think they can just change the subject and sweep it under the carpet...until next time. I am then blamed simply for defending my own privacy and personal boundaries. This sort of behavior is way out of line, it is a form of aggression (passive-aggressive, usually), whether they "understand" or not, and there really is no excuse...
 
Clearly, no matter how much they claim to "care", nor how they declare their "love" for me, their misguided attitude of self-righteousness, as "do-gooders", and their pathological compulsion to interfere in the lives of others, will trump any true concern for the individual, or for respecting the right of self-determination in the lives of others. As far as I am concerned, true friends respect the privacy, personal boundaries and rights of others, or they cannot be called friends.
 
And lastly, I find it important to state that I am not a "public servant". I am not "employed" by any person or entity which would require a public disclosure of private information. I am not running for public office, nor will ever do so. I have no criminal record. I am not a "registered" voter. My street address and telephone number are private and unlisted. I do not use a social security number. I have no bank accounts or credit cards in my name. I have removed myself in every way possible from the "system", and from any and all past associations or involvement with government entities, bureaus or agencies.
 
 
 
QUESTION: "Once CIA, always CIA". Is this true?
 
 
Answer: This statement is thought to be "the common wisdom" about CIA, but people ask me this more than any other question. I've also frequently had those who think they know more than they do repeat this as an accusation against me personally --as if this statement is axiomatic, written in stone, and never to be questioned. 
 
There is some truth to this statement, at least figuratively speaking, but it is far from absolute. I would also say it is the general rule, but there are exceptions. I know several persons who were able to get out and stay out (and live to tell about it), though these individuals have not gone public as whistleblowers using their real names. There are a few I have known who got out, did go public and are no longer among the living. All of them, however, paid a heavy price for their defection.
 
As for those who officially "retire" from CIA? No such thing, and yes, they will always be CIA. 
 
CIA is more of a cult than anything else. As with all cults, there is heavy indoctrination of the members, as well as the ever-present implicit threat of the dire consequences, should any individual refuse to "go along with the program". CIA is similar to the Mafia, in that it tends to be an intergenerational "family profession", in which the members are recruited by virtue of a family bloodline, whether they are interested in joining, or not. What's more, in their flagrant  arrogance, the cult of CIA actually thinks they own you, lock stock and barrel.
 
For me, the only way out was by the Grace of God. It's not as if you can just "walk away", without a hell of a fight, but I believe if you are determined, God can make a way, where there is no way. At least, that's how it worked for me. With God, all things are possible.
 
But there is also another way to look at that statement, "Once CIA, always CIA". I don't believe you can ever completely put aside the training  you received; or the way you are taught to think, or to behave, or go about your business. Vestiges of all that would tend to stay with you for your lifetime, but it is the way you use what you know that matters.
 
Will you use your knowledge, talents and skills to do good and help others? Will you be ethical in your dealings with everyone, rather than take unfair advantage, just because you may know how to get away with it? Will you stand up for the truth, rather than protect the lies? Will you defend the God-given unalienable rights which are violated as a matter of standard policy and procedures by government agencies like CIA?
 
In summary, it's not what you know that counts, rather it is how you use what you know. Same goes for talents and training. Will you do good or will you do evil? Whom will you serve? Will you serve God, or will you serve worldly ambition?
 
 
QUESTION: What are your views on politics?
 
 
Who needs politics? I am a defender of  Liberty and Individual rights, unalienable rights as bestowed by God. That is the extent of my "politics". Any political ideology which violates the principles of Liberty in any way is anathema to me. 
 
I am not a member of any political party, nor ever have been. The so-called 'two-party system' in this country is a sham. People have been indoctrinated into believing that Republicans and Democrats are at opposite ends of a spectrum, when in fact both parties are controlled from above by an elitist cabal, which does not represent the interests of America, nor its people, but rather of secret occult societies and multi-national corporations.
 
The government in this country, founded as a Constitutional Republic, is supposed to be "of the people, by the people and for the people"; and "bound by the chains of the Constitution". Obviously in practice that is not the case, but as a matter of principle, I believe that any true patriot will stand in defense of the God-given (natural) unalienable rights of the Individual, as protected and guaranteed under the Constitution. The government does not bestow rights on the people, they are bestowed only by God. Nor do rights come from the Constitution. The Constitution "protects" the rights of the people. This country was not founded as a "Democracy", either, another common misconception which has been purposely disseminated by politicians and tyrants.
 
Though all this should be common knowledge, I find it amazing how few people actually understand these simple truths.
 
The real problem in this country, as I see it, is caused by the Leftists. This could include socialists, communists, liberals, "progressives" or other such labels, each of which has certain specific beliefs or "planks". But all of them have one common overriding ideology: Leftists do not respect --or even acknowledge-- the God-given rights of the Individual.
 
Leftists are collectivists, and as such they falsely believe they have the right to sacrifice Individual rights to "the collective" or for the so-called "common good". The truth is, only INDIVIDUALS have rights. There are no "collective" rights. Any collective is made up of individuals. God creates individuals, one by one, whereas collectives are created by the world of men. God bestows rights on the Individual, and the collectivists falsely believe they have the right to take them away!
 
Wrong, wrong and wrong again. Not on my watch.
 
Leftists do not acknowledge the sovereignty of the Individual. The Leftist does not respect the privacy, nor the personal boundaries of the Individual. Leftists believe in "consensus"; they believe in mob rule by the majority. They are entitled to "believe" what they will, however, they are NOT entitled to force their beliefs and standards on the rest of us, which is exactly what they are hell-bent on doing.
 
Leftists are busybodies who falsely believe they know what is "best" for others; they believe they have the right to "decide" for others, and will spare no effort in their meddling in the business of others. Leftists are nosy and pushy as hell, they violate the rights of others with impunity. The only way of dealing with their aggression is to clearly draw your boundary line, give no quarter. Stand your ground and repel them at the border line!
 
 Don't ask for anything from a Leftist. When the Leftist "gives" something, there is always a price tag attached. They believe their gifts "buy" them the right to interfere or micromanage the lives of the recipients. (Think of the welfare state, social services, child protective services, etc. etc.)
 
Leftists are ravening wolves in sheep's clothing. They are cowards who are hungry for power over others, because in the final analysis, they lack a core of personal integrity. Leftists confuse "self-esteem" with self-respect. But there is a world of difference. Any "self-respect" they may think they  have comes not from a personal relationship with the Creator (they don't have one), but from the approval given by human beings. There is no more "of the world" mentality than that of the Leftist.
 
The United Nations is the best example I can think of, defining the globalist totalitarian mentality of the Leftist. Anyone who trafficks with this dangerous tyrannical organization, or even acknowledges their "authority" (which is non-existent under the Rule of Law & U.S. Constitution) is in my opinion a public menace.
 
(Get the U.S. the hell OUT of the U.N.!!!!!!)
 
In the end, Leftists are violent thugs who will force their will on others at the point of a gun, all the while proclaiming their "compassion", their "love", their "spirituality" and their dedication to "human rights". (Just check out the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights to see where that leaves the "rights" of the Individual --nowhere to be found.)
 
Human rights are bestowed by God on each and every Individual. But it couldn't be more obvious that Leftists are godless, despite claims some of them may make to the contrary. No one who truly knows and loves the Personal Living God of the Universe would ever desire to wield ungodly power over His Creation or His Creatures.
 
Many Leftists are New Agers or secular humanists who believe that they are "gods" unto themselves. Perhaps that is why they delude themselves into thinking they can force their will on others, through social engineering and humanist propaganda, and try to justify their unjustifiable aggression  --WE KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR YOU. WE CAN SOLVE YOUR PROBLEMS --whether we have your permission, or not! And if you don't comply with our directives, we will kill you!
 
(Just remember the history of every communist regime that ever existed, excepting none.)

QUESTION: Why did you decide to go public as a CIA whistleblower?
 
 
Because that is what the Holy Spirit instructed me to do. It wasn't so much a personal choice coming from my own will as it was a moral/spiritual imperative which I was unable to counter with any intellectual argument.
 
I think this is true of most people who become whistleblowers, at least those who are sincerely trying to do what is right. True moral imperatives, in my opinion, come from having a personal relationship with God. It is not a matter of "religion", but rather of a clear spiritual awareness of the true nature of evil, and of the duty of the individual to hold moral absolutes, to stand against evil in any form, wherever it is found.
 
 
Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead expose them.
 
Ephesians 5:11
 
 
QUESTION: Do you believe it was worth it to have taken a public stand against CIA, given that they are an organization which strikes fear into the hearts of so many people?
 
 
That would be hard to say, whether it was 'worth it', given that I have suffered many years of persecution, grievous injustices, incalculable losses and personal injuries, both physical and emotional.
 
However, I could not have done otherwise, not with a clear conscience. Personally, I don't understand how anyone could NOT take a stand against evil, once they understand what it is, and who is perpetrating it, no matter the consequences.
 
Those who are willing to live with evil, or to participate in it, to "go along to get along", or exchange moral absolutes for moral relativism or "situational ethics", will always pay the consequences sooner or later. I would rather be clearly visible, right out in the open, letting the criminals and evildoers know of my stand, than live the life of a coward and a compromiser. Would rather die on my feet, if necessary, than live on my knees. Never, ever compromise with evil. That about sums it up.
 
 
 
QUESTION: What has been the worst thing that happened as a result of taking a stand against CIA?
 
 
There is no doubt in my mind about the answer to this question. For me it has been having to always stand alone. In all these many years I've never had even one person I could rely on for anything, material support or otherwise. Any support I have received (even from those closest to me, including my family) has been temporary and/or conditional.
 
The neutralization campaign against a targeted whistleblower is based on destroying any support system the Target may have, and doing their damnedest to prevent family, friends or professional colleagues from offering any type of assistance and support the Target may need.
 
Isolation, alienation, deprivation. (CIA Psy Ops Protocol)
 
Family relationships, in particular, are sabotaged, in many cases irreparably destroyed. "In laws" or "outside agitators" (of one kind or another) are often the cause of estrangement between family members, especially when they are able to influence one family member so that they do not support another, namely the targeted whistleblower. 
 
Most people who lead "normal" lives cannot begin to imagine what it is like for the Target of  an organized campaign of persecution by the government, simply because they themselves have never experienced it, and are so indoctrinated by the system, so in thrall to "the way things are done",  that they can't see beyond it. They are enslaved by worldly pursuits and goals, all the while thinking they are "free". 
 
Most are also fearful of retaliation by the government, should they take a stand in support of a whistleblower. I am speaking not only of my own experience, but that of many others I have known, some of whose cases I have thoroughly investigated.
 
The friends, family or associates of the Target can usually be intimidated; they can be threatened or bribed. They can be made to believe falsehoods about the Target, which provides an excuse to withdraw support. The Target is thus left abandoned and/or betrayed by those closest to him/her, bereft of the most basic support necessary for survival.
 
Since I have never been willing to compromise my principles in order to get any kind of support, it certainly narrows the field where support might be available. I have found that people in general are compromisers. If you are a non-compromiser in a world of people who believe that compromise is acceptable, or even necessary --people who fear the consequences to themselves if they take the hard line on principle-- you will find yourself abandoned and/or betrayed over and over. You will also be mistreated, as a "condition" of receiving support, which translates into no real support at all. Basically, this is the story of my life, and it has been heartbreaking, more than anything else I have experienced.
 
Rather than respect the person who will not compromise, I have found that people often feel threatened, so rather than look deeper into their own willingness to compromise, and what that might actually mean, they will try to force their own views and standards on the person who lives by principle.
 
I've heard them say, "Everyone has to compromise, it's a part of life." Or, they will shift the blame to the Victim/Target of persecution, saying "Well, you brought it on yourself. If only you had been willing to (fill in the "compromise" blank), you wouldn't be in such trouble now", etc. etc.
 
These pronouncements are made in attempts to influence the individual, to deflect him off his path, to stand down, to stop him from doing what he knows in his heart to be right. After all, they will smugly opine, "You can't fight City Hall..."  True, such people "can't fight City Hall", they just don't have the backbone, but nonetheless they are "convicted in their hearts", knowing they are shamed by the courage of the non-compromiser. If they can't do it, they don't want anyone else to do it.
 
Unfortunately, the compromisers outnumber the persons of principle, by many orders of magnitude. It is the way of the world, and has been since the dawn of civilization.
 
I have known people who claimed they wanted to "support" me, people who insisted that their values were the same as mine (which I have always clearly outlined, both publicly and privately), and yet, when an issue came up which would for them normally be resolved by a compromise (or what I saw as other inappropriate or injudicious action), rather than respect my position of non-compromise, would aggressively try to force their views on me, pressuring me with unsolicited advice as to what I "should" be doing.
 
Then, when I told them that I reserve the right to make my own decisions, for my own reasons; that I won't allow anyone to "manage" my life or manipulate me --rather than respect my rights, my personal boundaries, they would become angry and even abusive in their treatment of me. When they saw that their pressure tactics and bullying would not be tolerated, usually this ended in a withdrawal of any "support", material or otherwise.
 
This is the kind of "support" I don't want or need.  A true "supporter" (whether a personal friend or not) will first and foremost respect the privacy, the personal boundaries and the rights of those they support. To me, this is a matter of honor, and a sacred trust.
 
 And no matter how desperate may be my need for support, no matter the extremes of hardship, I face, I do not allow myself to get into "conflicts with people". I refuse to argue or debate with anyone about MY OWN RIGHTS, which are non-negotiable, given that I am sovereign in my own life. Some people consider my position to be "extreme", but by my way of thinking, I can never be too "extreme" in holding to my principles and defending my God-given unalienable rights. The same goes for my defense of the rights of others, which I believe some people at least, can appreciate.
 
In my own case, I have made it clear that I will gratefully accept donations (or other material or nonmaterial forms of support), when given in the spirit of Christian charity or "love gifts". Does this mean I am a "charity case", a beggar who cannot be a chooser?
 
No, on the contrary, I am an Individual, a Sovereign Child of God, and I expect that others will treat me with respect and courtesy, just as I would treat them. 
 
My philosophy is, if you can't be a "cheerful giver", who gives out of love, and/or on principle, expecting nothing in return; whose support is based on simply valuing the person and/or the work they do, then don't give at all. Not to me, anyway.
 
 
Jesus said, "Beware of practicing your piety before others in order to be seen by them; for then you have no reward from your Father in heaven. So whenever you give alms, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the strrets, so that they may be praised by others. Truly, I tell you, they have received their reward. But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your alms may be done in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
 
Matthew 6: 1-6
