Ted Gunderson: Ex Officio COINTELPRO, De Facto COINTELPRO

From the Hartwell Files, 2003

FYI: This report comes from Jackie McGauley, the primary whistleblower in the McMartin Preschool case. The Ex-FBI agent mentioned here is Ted L. Gunderson, former Senior SAC of the Los Angeles office.

I have spent many hours hearing Jackie's tesitmony via phone conversations and have studied many of the documents relating to the case. I have also done radio programs with Jackie, for the purpose of exposing Ted L. Gunderson's illegal activities, based on my personal knowledge as another person who had been hoodwinked by Gunderson during a three year period of working with him professionally (1997-2000).

For those concerned about the abuse of children by satanist elements in the gov't and their cronies (and I think EVERYONE should be, whether a parent or not) this case reveals the brutal truth about the extensive network of pedophiles, child pornography and prostitution --the victimization of innocent children by criminals who act with impunity to commit and cover up atrocities. It's high time these evil-doers are EXPOSED, arrested and jailed for their crimes against God and humanity.

Please circulate this widely, post and forward. For more information, contact Jackie McGauley.

Thank you for your consideration.


My daughter attended the McMartin Preschool 20 years ago. She was 2 and a half. She is now 22.

In the Spring of 1990 a group of parents gained access to the preschool property and decided to look for tunnels the children had described. Many children said they were taken into tunnels under the school, abused, and transported away from the property into the community.

I still live here in Manhattan Beach. There were hundreds of families who filed police reports and 42 families whose children were chosen to testify.I hired an archaeologist and he and his team uncovered 3 sections of tunnels directly under the preschool building foundation. The fact that tunnels were found was reported in the news.

A year later I commissioned a formal report. I arranged to pay the archaeologist $3,000 to write the formal report, $1000 in donations, $1000 from Gloria Steinem and $1,000 from me. I contacted many publishers. No one would publish it.

Technology has changed since then and publishing is not the major expense it used to be. I have had copies made at my own expense and sent them out on request, but I cannot do this on a large scale.

I am disabled and have no other income than Social Security. I had to file bankruptcy in 1993 because of a carpetbagger X FBI con man who embezzled $30,000 from me.

Since then the group False Memory Syndrome Foundation (FMSF) has said "there are no tunnels." This false statement is repeated often by anyone researching the trial.


Hundreds of children are being called liars. This untruth is used DAILY to "prove" children are simply LIARS. It is used to set pedophiles free!

Sadistic (ritual) abuse DID happen at the McMartin Preschool!

If you are a parent or someone who cares about the safety of children, please contact me about getting this report published! I don't want to make money on this. I just want the truth out there!!!

Please copy this plea and distribute it widely.

Thank you for your help!

Letter to Ted Gunderson from Jackie McGauley, 2003

Ted Gunderson,

Quit talking about my case, the McMartin Preschool case.

No one hired you and you did not "work" the case and YOU KNOW IT. You are a liar and a flimflam man, going from town to town claiming you are something you are not.

Your claim to fame that impresses innocent victims into paying money to you include lies you tell about my case, the Polly Klaas case (ask the prosecutor, Greg Jacobs-Mark or Joe Klaas, you did not work that case.), the Peterson case, the MacDonald case, you went to the Olympics with a group of psychics, and way more.

Shame on the FBI for making you SAC in Memphis right after the King assassination, in Dallas right after the John F. Kennedy assassination and in Los Angeles right after the Robert Kennedy Assassination.

It is pitiful what you have done to many people, Mary Scheibe, Lillian Madsen, your clinic in Mexico, Shaliko gold mines, Tivoli Ventures, way too many scams to list here.

You could pay me back the money you owe me, but I doubt you ever will. My children and I had to file bankruptcy because of you.

You broke my finger.

You hit me in the ear and put out my hearing. You are a sick, violent and abusive person.

Get help for your diagnosed mental problem (Paranoid Schizophrenia). Go back on your medication! Stay away from vulnerable innocent victims!

Jackie McGauley,

Parent of a victim of the McMartin preschool

PROFILE: Ted Gunderson

TED GUNDERSON: 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/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 (1978) 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.
