Do not say, 'I sinned but what has happened to me?' for the Lord is slow to anger. Do not be so confident of forgiveness that you add sin to sin. Do not say, 'His mercy is great, he will forgive the multitude of my sins', for both mercy and wrath are with him, and his anger will rest on sinners. Do not delay to turn back to the Lord, and do not postpone it from day to day; for suddenly the wrath of the Lord will come upon you, and at the time of punishment you will perish. Do not depend on dishonest wealth, for it will not benefit you on the day of calamity.
--Ecclesiasticus of Sirach

 Message From Jackie McGauley, McMartin Preschool Whistleblower
June, 2003

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.


The Last Circle

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.
