A Mother's Message on Sexual & Satanic Ritual Abuse

Note: Since this was written (June, 2003) the Gunderson minions named here have become increasingly aggressive in their libel and slander campaigns against Barbara Hartwell and Jackie McGauley.

Predicate felon Tim White has escalated his stalking and death threats against various targets who have exposed the truth about Ted Gunderson and his cronies and minions. Ken Adachi and Larry Lawson, who defend and endorse Gunderson and White, continue publishing outrageous lies about those targeted in Gunderson's COINTELPRO operations.

In their vicious disinformation campaigns, these government stooges and useful idiots accuse the targets (including Barbara Hartwell and Jackie McGauley) of exactly the crimes, lies and coverups which THEY are engaging in.

But in their efforts to discredit us, and to destroy our personal and professional reputations, these disinfo perps are lacking the most vital things: FACTS and EVIDENCE.

What you will read here, on the other hand, is based on FACTS and EVIDENCE.


Jackie McGauley is the primary whistleblower, the mother who exposed the McMartin Preschool atrocities, involving sexual and satanic ritual abuse of children.

Jackie first contacted me in 2002, saying she had been wanting to talk to me for years. Her reason was compelling: to furnish vital information and evidence about former FBI Senior SAC Ted L. Gunderson, who tried to take full credit for the McMartin Preschool investigation, at Jackie's expense.

In fact Jackie deserves all the credit: It was HER child who was abused. It was JACKIE who raised the money, through a campaign for donations, which made it possible for the archaeological dig uncovering the underground tunnels, to take place. It was JACKIE who gave her heart-wrenching testimony on all the major TV and radio talk shows.

And it was Jackie who finally provided me with enough solid evidence for me to realize, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Ted Gunderson, a person I had once trusted with my life, was anything but trustworthy.

I had worked with Gunderson for three (3) years between 1997-2000. I spoke with him at conferences; traveled with him to work on investigations in various areas of the country; did radio and TV interviews with him.

In February 1998, Insider Secrets of Government Corruption, a seminar given by Ted, myself, ex-CIA operative Gene 'Chip' Tatum and Brice Taylor aka Sue Ford, was followed by a TV interview with Ryan Elliot of Chicago Health Television. The taped interview was never aired by the station. The topics, which included firsthand testimony about CIA drug-running, assassinations and mind control and which named names, was deemed too inflammatory for television.

However, Ted Gunderson and Sue Ford made large profits off bootleg sales of this tape, while I received nothing, not a penny for my work. Gunderson minions, such as Jon Gentry, Ted's videographer, and his sidekick Doug Millar, also pirated the tape, which has been sold all over the Internet, by others such as David Icke, another Gunderson crony, copyright violations notwithstanding.

I cut off contact with Ted in January 2000, long before I talked to Jackie McGauley, after much solid evidence was provided to me of his involvement in numerous scams; dirty dealings and COINTELPRO-style operations.

Although I was hoodwinked by Gunderson for the entire time of my association with him, once I realized that I myself was a target of these operations, I put as much distance between myself and Ted as possible.

I declined to testify against Ted in the Art Bell lawsuit, when Bell's lawyers approached me through another witness. This was because in all fairness, at the time I did not have enough relevant evidence to work with. That evidence came later, after I had lived through severe trauma due to death threats, intimidation tactics and set ups, all of which could be traced back to connections, in one way or another, with Ted Gunderson.

Ted Gunderson claims I am still being handled by CIA. That is a lie being promoted by other Gunderson minions and toadies, such as Ken Adachi, Ted's primary mouthpiece for spreading libelous disinformation.

Once I severed my ties with Gunderson, a number of his cronies, minions and dupes were sent after me, all of whom used various tactics in attempts to silence me; intimidate me or set me up. Some of Gunderson's cronies are CIA, such as operatives Don Stacey of Boston and Hank Amsden of New Hampshire. But that's a story for another time......


Due to my spiritual discernment and spirit-filled intuition, but mostly by the grace of God, none of them have been successful and their attempts have been foiled.

I am very glad to have made contact with Jackie McGauley. I have spoken with her for many hours on the phone, though I haven't yet had the pleasure of meeting her. She is a courageous woman who is not afraid to tell the truth about anything she has experienced, including her dealings with Ted Gunderson. I consider her a friend and a valuable ally.

I must also give credit to Stew Webb, who suffered abuse at Gunderson's hands, including attempts on his life, false arrests and other forms of persecution. It is mostly because of Stew and Jackie that I finally saw the truth about Ted Gunderson. It just about broke my heart, but the truth is the truth and I know it when I hear it from sincere individuals describing the abuses they have suffered.

At present, there is a vicious libel, slander and harassment campaign against myself, Stew and others, all of whom have told the truth about our experiences with Ted Gunderson, in addition to being whistleblowers about government corruption which we directly witnessed and experienced.

Psychotic stalkers and pathological liars, government dupes, being used by Gunderson and his cronies include Brenda Negri aka Ranger Rick; Tim White; Shirley Anderson; Larry Lawson.

Not all publicly defend and endorse Ted Gunderson. [Lawson did change his position and has been defending Gunderson for quite some time.] But Negri and White have certainly done so, showing their vile hypocrisy and opportunism in allying themselves with a person they had formerly denounced, when they found it convenient...but rushing to his defense when they believed it could do some serious damage to myself, Stew and others they wish to destroy.

Now here is Jackie's message, which she has given me permission to publish. Please read it with an open mind and a compassionate heart. I know Jackie is sincere. She is telling the truth, at risk of her security and possibly even her life. Please give Jackie's message the consideration it deserves.

Thank You.

Message From Jackie McGauley

I am writing to only a small, select group of people that have been interested in my experiences. You know where I am coming from, my background and how I have been fighting for survivors and doing research to make sense out of all of this.

When I threw Ted Gunderson out of my house and figured out my damages, I found I was over $30,000 in debt. I was a single mother of 2 young children only receiving $300 per month in child support. I was very ill the entire time Ted was in my house. Needless to say the kids and I were destitute. I was unable to be very involved in the issue. Survival for me and my kids was all I could manage. Some of you know how desperate my situation was and helped me.

In the mid 90s Cheri Seymour, who had been around the last 2 of the years I was with Ted, approached me to join her in writing a book. Frankly. I was scared. I refused and asked her not to use my name in the book.

Cheri wrote the book, based on her experiences and documents gathered during that time. That book is The Last Circle. Cheri used a pen name, Carol Marshall. From what I hear Cherie has had a rough time and had to go into hiding. I doubt I would have lived if I had worked with her on this project.

If you are truly interested in why Bush bombed Iraq, why our children are sadistically abused in preschools and daycare, why the perps are getting away with it and how it all fits together, this book is key. It is available on the Internet at no cost. Enter the words "The Last Circle JM" into Google or Yahoo search and you can read about that part, my involvement. The Chapters are posted and all you need to do is print it out.

Obviously, for years I could not afford to buy this book. A draft was sent to me in 1999, the year my mother passed away. I did not take the time to read it until just recently.

I urge you to look at the book and Please let me know what you think or if you have any questions.

I have been told by most of you that I should write a book, well an important part of that book has been written. I look forward to hearing back from you.


Note: The following summary on Ted Gunderson was posted on Quest for a Fair Trial in Concord New Hampshire, in the comments section. Ed Brown's staff then put up a link to my site, with a notice: Barbara Hartwell Posts Warning About Ted Gunderson.

Jackie McGauley, after seeing the post on Ed's site, e-mailed me and suggested that this summary should be reposted time and again, as she is well aware of the truth outlined here.


Former Senior SAC, FBI. Retired from FBI in 1979. Heavily involved in COINTELPRO under the direction of J. Edgar Hoover. Impressive credentials, uses them to insinuate himself into high profile cases, such as murder; human trafficking/slavery; child sex abuse/pornography rings; government mind control operations.

Promotes himself as a "licensed private investigator" though he has been cited for practicing without a license in at least two states and was court-ordered to pay heavy fines as a result, which were garnished from his FBI pension.

Gunderson targets former government operatives and whistleblowers for the purpose of neutralizing and/or discrediting them. Runs containment operations to place a desired spin on and/or defuse information.

Spreads black propaganda (a specialty of COINTELPRO) about his targets. Uses sensationalism to promote his cases; talks endlessly of Satanic Ritual Abuse and Satanism and attempts to apply these motives/modus operandi to a majority of crimes, though there is usually a dearth of evidence to substantiate his claims.

He also relies heavily on preaching about the evils of the Illuminati; the New World Order; the Shadow Government. Not that these entities don't exist, but to hear Gunderson tell it, these vaguely described entities are responsible for all the evil in the world; furthermore, he automatically accuses anyone he doesn't like; who questions his integrity; or who has exposed his many scams and criminal activities of "working" for them; being "handled" by them; "answering to" them and so on and so forth.

As part of his schtick, he also vociferously denounces CIA; but has claimed that when he worked for FBI (1951-1979) "We had a great organization." AS IF the corruption in FBI only started after he left.

Ex-FBI agent Geral Sosbee, who was forced into early retirement (1979) for reporting FBI corruption and for defending the Constitutional rights of both suspects and agents, tells a much different story --the truth, that is. In fact, at the time Sosbee reported some of the FBI crimes, Gunderson was the Chief Inspector and instead of investigating Sosbee's reports of corruption, he simply ignored them. (See Sosbee's testimony re Gunderson on this website.)

Gunderson uses a network of snitches and provocateurs, mostly amateurs, and often criminals who want a "get out of jail free" card. Sics his minions on legitimate whistleblowers, to harass, stalk, spread outrageous lies about the targets, and otherwise do as much damage as possible. Some Gunderson minions include: Tim White; Brenda Negri; Ken Adachi; Susan Ford aka Brice Taylor; Jon Gentry; Pam Schuffert, all listed in this report.

Gunderson has been involved in black operations/illegal domestic and foreign covert operations (including CIA) for many years, during and after his FBI service. Drugs/arms deals and the like. Sold Stinger missiles to Osama bin Laden in 1979 (in connection with a CIA op), while still working for FBI. Lied about it, denied it when it was exposed, then later admitted it publicly, only after being confronted with irrefutable evidence that several investigators, including Barbara Hartwell, had collected.

Married Diana Rively, the widow of Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan, in 1998. Marriage was annulled. Lied to many people, denied the marriage. Public records of the marriage exist in California and possibly Nevada.

For additional accurate, factual information on Ted Gunderson, see The Last Circle by Cheri Seymour (aka Carol Marshall) or contact Jackie McGauley, the primary McMartin Preschool whistleblower and mother of an abused child.

McMartin was one of the high-profile cases which Gunderson involved himself in and attempted to take credit for. None of the perps were convicted. Other high-profile cases "investigated" by Ted Gunderson show similar results, or rather lack of results, as the perps usually go scott-free, while the victims/targets who have hired him (or for whom he volunteered his services) see no justice.

Ted Gunderson: Ex officio COINTELPRO. And de facto COINTELPRO. Nothing has changed, not in over forty years.
