From the Throne of Hell: Pastor Manning Tells It Like It Is

Pastor James David Manning

I'm a huge fan of Pastor James David Manning, have been ever since the first time I watched one of his videos.

Pastor Manning is a plainspoken, honest, Spirit-filled Christian who has made it a mission to expose the deception, the treason and the evil of the usurper "president", Barack Hussein Obama. 

Manning calls Obama the "long legged mack daddy". (For those who don't know, the term means a pimp.)

Today, I watched a video of Pastor Manning, commenting on Obama's State of the Union address. I didn't see Obama's speech, as I don't have cable (and more to the point, I haven't watched TV in thirty years, as a matter of principle.)

But anyway, Pastor Manning was adamant and passionate in denouncing Obama as more evil than Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot, Josef Stalin and Adolph Hitler, all of whom murdered millions in their genocide campaigns.

Obama is worse than any of these tyrants, says Manning, because he intends to destroy the Church of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I couldn't agree more. 

Manning calls Obama the "son of Satan", and says his powerful rhetoric (which fools millions) comes straight from the throne of Hell.  Again, I agree.

The reason I agree is simple: spiritual discernment, one of the Gifts of the Spirit God has bestowed on me, and, as also is clear, on Pastor Manning.  As was the case with Manning, I discerned the evil the first time I laid eyes on Barack Hussein Obama. Later investigatons confirmed my first impression, as also happened with Pastor Manning.

I urge everyone who cares about the fate of this once great nation, the United States of America; as well as those who believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and who care about Christian principles, to join in solidarity with Pastor James David Manning.  He has a plan which will expose Obama as the usurper, the impostor, the traitor he is, once and for all.

It is our duty as patriots and Christians to expose the evil that is destroying our country. Our children's and grandchildren's future depends on it.

For videos of Pastor Manning which expose Obama see:

God bless you and keep you, Pastor James David Manning!

And thank you for telling it like it is!

Alex Jones Co-opts Texans for Accountable Government's Austin PD Protest

Bulldozer Alex Jones Wielding His Bullhorn



Note: Lord have mercy! I just could not let this pass, when I saw it on the RBN News this morning. Alex ("Mockingbird") Jones is at it again.

Jones never lets an opportunity go by for a publicity stunt; nor does he have any respect for the personal boundaries (nor the wishes, the feelings nor even the RIGHTS) of others.

As regards Jones's comment to the protestors, that they don't know what they are doing -- well, that can't be said for Alex. He knows exactly what he is doing --that is, the bidding of his government masters, the controlled opposition for which he is so obviously a shill and front man.
In any case, it seems Alex Jones accomplished his mission: to discredit the protestors and water down their message.
Put this in your pipe and smoke it, Alex Jones:  I was arrested (after being tear-gassed) in 1969 for marching on the Pentagon against the Vietnam war.  Yes, I made my one phone call to Langley and CIA bailed me out, but that isn't the point.
The point is, I am old enough to be your grandmother, and I know government corruption from the inside out, and I've been observing it --not to mention being targeted for it-- for well over half a century.  I can guarantee that I have forgotten more about government black ops, crimes and cover-ups than you will ever know -- even if you are still here in 20 years and the Lord has sent the chariot to take me home!
You were not even born when many of us old timers (most of whom are grandparents) were engaging in the kind of activism which puts you (and the little government dupes-- of all ages-- who follow you) to shame.
Yes, shame on you, Alex Jones!
Leave decent people, real patriots (no matter how "new" or "young" they are) alone.  We need them in this country. But they sure don't need the likes of you, bulldozing into their demonstrations and pushing them aside with your loud, grandstanding self, wielding your bullhorn.

Freedoms Phoenix

A planned protest turned ugly yesterday when liberty activists turned on each other at an event held on the steps of the Austin Police Department HQ regarding the APD and BATFE’s decision to shut down the long running and legally-held Texas Gun Show on January 16th and 17th.

Talk show host and filmmaker Alex Jones was invited yet refused to speak at yesterday’s protest, which was sponsored by Texans for Accountable Government, Truth Seekers, and the Ladies of Liberty Alliance.  Instead, Jones co-opted the event by using his bullhorn to drown out the event’s scheduled speakers.

In a YouTube video chronicling the takeover of the event by Jones and the ensuing tumult, Catherine Bleish, Executive Director of the Liberty Restoration Project confronted Jones regarding his comment that they were “new activists and they didn’t know what they were doing,” to which Jones replied; “Well, I said that to you, yes.”

An off-camera and unnamed activist then asked for the reason why Jones didn’t work with the event’s organizers, to which Jones replied, “Well, I’m sorry; I brought 80% of the people here.”  While much of the audio is unintelligible due to ambient sound, Bleish informs Jones “Many people worked really hard on this event,” to which Jones replied again, “You don’t know what you’re doing.”  Jones also says during the exchange, “You’ve got a hard-on for me” and “I’ll be here in 20 years.”

You know what they say; too many cooks trying to make a name for themselves always spoil the broth.

Support Sherry Jackson: An American Hero

 Sherry and Colin Jackson


For roughly the past two months, I have been doing my best to publicize the case of Sherry Jackson, a political prisoner and a beautiful (inside and out) Spirit-filled Christian, who was unlawfully railroaded into prison, in part based on the perjured testimony of false witnesses, some of whom were her former colleagues and even "friends".

During this time, I have also been in contact with Sherry's husband, Colin, who has provided updates whenever possible, to me and to other friends and supporters of Sherry.

The last I heard (as of yesterday, January 27) was that there was no news to be reported, but that Colin would be providing us with more information as soon as he is able.

Meanwhile, though I've looked, I haven't seen anything more posted on the Internet re Sherry's case.

After getting Colin's approval, since there was nothing new to report, I decided to post the links for all my previous reports on Sherry Jackson.

This will provide an overview for those who don't know the case, and perhaps additional information and details for those already familiar with Sherry's situation.

I have included some videos of both Colin and Sherry, as well as a radio interview with special guest Colin Jackson, on The American Awakening, hosted by Michael Herzog. I'm on this interview as well, but mostly just for backup, and during the second hour, Michael and I discuss the consequences of becoming a government whistleblower.

I remain very concerned for the welfare and the safety of Sherry Jackson, as do many other supporters and friends.

Please take this opportunity to peruse the links and forward them on to other concerned Patriots and Defenders of Liberty.

And please let Sherry know that we have not forgotten her.

Write her a note, and let her know how much she is loved and appreciated. As Colin mentioned, Sherry feels badly that she might be unable to respond to all the correspondence, so also let her know that you understand and don't expect a reply.

Name: Sherry P Jackson
Register#: 59085-019

Also, a message from Colin re contacting Congressman Johnson and others on behalf of Sherry:

I feel the need to ask you to please, when you are corresponding with the prison, our Congressman and others, to be very clear but cordial. I do understand the emotions that come when you learn of wrongdoings and how you want to express those emotions. But, when anger and vile is expressed in those letters and phone calls, it works against what we are trying to accomplish. I spoke with my Congressman's office and they are trying to work on Sherry's behalf, but it's very difficult for them sometimes when they are being screamed at and bombarded with negativity.

I pray and hope that you understand my position and that you will keep these things in mind as you continue to send letters and place phone calls for her freedom. I am forever indebted to all of you.
God bless you.

In Christ,

Lastly, I'd like to say a heartfelt thanks to just a few of the journalists and activists I know of who made it a priority to help publicize Sherry's plight.

Michael Herzog; Janet Phelan; Melanie Phoenix; Mark Anderson; Dave Champion; Joe Lanier; Republic Broadcasting Network.

Please pray for Sherry Jackson, her husband Colin and their children.

Thank you for your consideration and God bless you.

Ex-FBI Agent Ted Gunderson Solicits Porno King Larry Flynt for COINTELPRO


 EXCERPT FROM REPORT (January, 2009)

Ted Gunderson's Published Proposal to Deploy COINTELPRO Tactics

Excerpt from Ted Gunderson's Letter to Larry Flynt

December 21, 1998
Larry Flynt
Flynt Publications


[I. Counter Intelligence Operation

Organize a select group of trusted, loyal Americans to operate an effective legal counter-intelligence operation. The goal of a counter-intelligence operation is to educate and, in some instances, to disrupt the enemy by mailing anonymous letters to selected individuals and groups in order to create distrust and paranoia. Another goal is to furnish disinformation and create confusion. I was a counter-intelligence expert in the FBI and I am aware of numerous techniques with which to work towards this goal. I wish to emphasize we will not conduct any criminal or illegal activity, nor violate any laws. All activities would be legal. There are other techniques than can be used, in addition to anonymous letters, i.e., telephone calls from public telephones. Disinformation can also be spread on radio and television talk shows.]

First, I would say that Gunderson's choice of an accomplice for his operation, the notorious pornographer, publisher of Hustler magazine, has got to be the lowest sleazoid on the planet. Ask yourself, who would want to do business with a low-life like Flynt?

Next, note that Ted Gunderson states that he was "a counter-intelligence expert in the FBI." Really? Then any reasonable person is left to draw the conclusion that Ted Gunderson was COINTELPRO, as that is the primary counter-intelligence operation in the FBI.

And now, he is looking to recruit more accomplices for his "legal" counter-intelligence operation.

"A select group of trusted, loyal Americans..."

Who could these "loyal Americans" be?

Let's start with some known associates of Ted L. Gunderson: Ken Adachi; Timothy Patrick White; Larry Lawson; Pamela Schuffert; John DeCamp. There are others, too numerous to mention, but these names will certainly be recognizable to anyone with an interest in the controversy this issue has generated over the past decade.

And for a damning statement, this one can't be beat: "Disinformation can also be spread on radio and television talk shows."

So, Ted Gunderson, in his own words, suggests spreading disinformation! And as many of us who have become his targets know, he's done just that, and in spades.

I can't count the times that Ted has gone on the airwaves slandering Barbara Hartwell, stating that I am a "government spook" or "CIA disinfo agent."

[For the primary example, at least in print, see the New Age/government disinformation website of Gunderson's PR shill, Ken Adachi.]

Fact is, this operation has been running for a long time. Ted Gunderson, joined by his cronies and amateur recruits (government stooges Tim White, Pam Schuffert, Ken Adachi, Todd Fahey, Larry Lawson et al) have wreaked havoc on the lives of many COINTELPRO targets. And there is no end in sight.....

As far as I can see, this so-called "legal" counter-intelligence operation will continue until the lives of the targets are so far destroyed that there is no hope to repair the damages.

And by the way, there is nothing "legal" about fraud, criminal stalking, identity theft, extortion, criminal harassment, death threats, murder-for hire schemes, inciting violence and terrorism.....this operation is a criminal conspiracy par excellence, rife with most every crime imaginable. Racketeering at its finest.

As for the privacy invasions and the libel/slander campaigns against targets, I guess you might stretch it to say these are "legal". After all, these are civil matters.

And since most of the law enforcement to whom we have reported these crimes refuse to do anything to protect the targets of criminal harassment/stalking and threats of violence and death (which are crimes) --or more to the point, to enforce the law-- who is going to care that the reputations of decent, legitimate Messengers of Truth and Defenders of Liberty are being destroyed, along with every other area of our lives? Nobody. After all, that is what "neutralization" is all about.

Now for some Truth and a breath of fresh air. Let's hear from another former FBI agent, who happens to be one of the targets of COINTELPRO, a Messenger of Truth and Defender of Liberty.

Comments from ex-FBI agent Geral Sobee

Ted Gunderson (hereinafter referred to as 'gun') recently wrote the following words to my good friend and professional colleague, Barbara Hartwell:

"Do the righteous people of the world a service and, like other slimy creatures, slither back into the hole from which you came.

Ted L Gunderson, FBI-SAC(Ret)"

Sosbee writes:

Such words as quoted above when directed against one of the true and great Defenders of Liberty (Barbara Hartwell) offend all sensitive persons who read them, but especially those of us who know and respect Barbara for her stand against government corruption. Indeed the 'righteous' as you call them reject the use of such descriptions above because no human being merits such a label.

However, gun is steeped in the use of labels, especially those that send good and innocent people to torture chambers, to prisons or to their deaths; gun is an expert by his own proclamation of his credentials (i.e.:SAC) in a) black operations, b) mind games, c) secret agent-provacateur dirty deeds worldwide.

No, gun, you are wrong. The world needs Barbara Hartwell more than you could possibly know/imagine; and as you have sold out to the evil forces of a corrupt government (the United States of America) in return for your petty benefits, you are the one who must someday atone for the atrocities you approved, directed, or condoned against men and women over the past half century.

Come clean, gun, about your knowledge regarding offenses and crimes against Humanity; help save the lives of targeted individuals; and renounce the fascist state that you presently support; then, maybe intelligent and informed people will listen to you.

You dare pretend to show a concern for the people of the United States when in fact you exploit the ignorance and fear of all who listen to you in order to further your own private interests and in order to perpetuate the destructive agenda of the cia and the fbi. The downfall of this country into a fascist state is in part your doing, gun, and you should not be proud of that, no matter how high an office you have attained.

Sosbee writes for the record on April 30, 2005:

gun indicates on his website that he was chief inspector for the fbi in 1973; in such capacity, gun had the responsibility to investigate Sosbee's reports of fbi crimes during that year. Not only did he fail to perform his duties as chief inspector, he continued thereafter to serve in high level positions in the fbi at a time when Sosbee was being harassed for reporting the criminal conduct of numerous fbi agents as set forth in

Ex-FBI agent Geral Sosbee Refutes Malicious Lies from Ken Adachi

Ken Adachi, Liar

Succinctly, Ken Adachi is a malicious liar and a petty fraudster for writing the following statements about Geral Sosbee (regarding Gunderson, I have reason to believe that all statements written about him by my greatest friend, Barbara Hartwell, are true):

Adachi writes: "...Barbara Hartwell's...gets little coverage beyond Gerald Sosbee or Stew Webb or other government-controlled "whistleblower" flunkies...You can find most of my articles...on my Ted Gunderson page..."

Don't be fooled. Boycott these COINTELPRO operatives and their minions and stooges. Better yet, do your own unbiased research and then EXPOSE your findings.

Are you a Messenger of Truth? A Defender of Liberty?

Stop COINTELPRO before it stops you.

More on the MK Ultra Controversy

Note: I wrote this report in April, 2001, for News Making News, as part of the Gunderson Data Dump.

I should mention that since that time, I have been compelled (sadly) to change my views on Kurt Billings. Though my comments on the quality of his research still stand, I did learn (the hard way!) that he was not the trustworthy person I had believed him to be.

Yes, I believe that Kurt is very damaged (just like anyone who has ever been subjected to government abuses like mind control); and I believe that "mind control" was involved. But it is simply no excuse, and had I listened to Kurt's advice, I probably would not be alive today.

Many of those who claim to be "experts" on mind control (Susan Ford aka "Brice Taylor" comes to mind), would have you believe that "mind control" is an excuse for any kind of abhorrent behavior, such as sexual abuse of children, etc.  These individuals try to justify their abuses of others --or at least exonerate themselves from blame-- claiming that "I couldn't help it, I was under mind control."

There are those who promote the idea of  "a total mind control slave". (Ignoramus/shill/liar Ken Adachi; CIA operative Mark Phillips, charlatan Fritz Springmeier; COINTELPRO operative Ted Gunderson; low level penetration agent Doug Millar; G-Man wannabe/criminal stalker Tim White & Co.....)

Unfortunately, Kurt Billings was instrumental in promoting a death threat against me, in which an innocent man was being set up.  Not surprisingly, predicate felon Tim White was the original source for this alleged death threat from a so-called "CIA assassin" (who in reality was former Special Forces, another target of the criminals in government.) 

And being that White made a deal (to get out of jail) with the same feds in Denver Colorado who threatened to "bring the roof down" on Barbara Hartwell if I did not take my website offline (which I did not); and considering the fact that the timing of this death threat was very "convenient" (it happened around the same time this article was written and the public controversy over Ted Gunderson erupted); and lastly, that White is a snitch/stooge for Ted Gunderson et al........

Well, I think you get the picture.

Mind control is a much misunderstood topic, at least by the general public.  There is so much disinformation swirling around this issue that it is very difficult to get to the core truths.

Add to this the fact that purposeful diversions have been put in place, lurid and sensationalist tales of sex slaves and satanism. This is mostly what you hear about, and what many people automatically associate with "mind control". Nothing could be further from the truth --at least the truth of what mind control is really about and the objectives of the perpetrators.

In truth, CIA's MK Ultra program was focussed on "creating the perfect spy", an elite operative trained under mind control, during the Cold War Era.

Then of course, there's the "Monarch" sideshow. As I have stated many times, over a period of the last decade and a half, I was never involved in "Monarch", though idiots everywhere (including Tim White, Todd Fahey, Ken Adachi et al) keep repeating this libelous falsehood.  As well, I have never found any evidence that "Monarch" was a CIA operation or that it was even connected to MK Ultra.

Worst of all, for me personally, is that the massive disinformation being disseminated about "Monarch" and the like has tainted the cases of real survivors of CIA black ops/mind control programs. But then, that was always the intention.  The folks at CIA may be crazy, but they're not stupid. 

For this reason, once I realized just how well organized was this CIA disinfo campaign and coverup, I decided that I would not be going into much detail about my own experiences with mind control programs. It would have been an exercise in futility, and ultimately self-defeating.

For me, "mind control" per se is not the only issue, nor even the main issue. Never has been. True,  I am a survivor of government mind control. But so what? "Mind control" is only one issue among many that are of concern to me.

Primarily, defending Liberty and God-given rights --the rights of the Individual-- are what matters most to me. If everyone focussed on this one objective, then mind control --like all other atrocities--would be stopped.

Lastly, beware of those who claim to be "experts" on mind control. Especially beware of the "Monarch" crowd. When you hear someone talking about "Monarch", that person is either a government dupe or he/she has an agenda (sometimes both) --and I can guarantee that agenda does not serve Truth, Liberty or Justice.

If you want the truth, first and foremost, pray that God will reveal it to you through the Holy Spirit. Secondly, do your own research. There is no substitute. And finally, use discernment (intellectually and spiritually) in evaluating research material or the testimony of witnesses and survivors.

More on the MK Ultra Controversy
April, 2001

As regards the controversy which began when NEWSMAKINGNEWS published a letter written to MKULTRA researcher Kurt Billings by Martin Cannon, I would like to respond to the most recent additional viewpoints posted on the site. I have also received e-mail from Martin Cannon which I would like to comment on. And lastly, it is important to me that I further clarify my own position regarding some issues that have been raised in the continuing public debate regarding MKULTRA.

Let me start by thanking Kenn Thomas, editor of Steamshovel Press -- a researcher whose writings I have enjoyed for years-- for taking the time to write to me with his astute comments regarding Martin Cannon. Kenn Thomas's letter to me was then passed on to subscribers of TopView, by John Quinn, with John's additional editorial comments (insightful and humorous, as always ) and finally, forwarded by Quinn to be posted on NewsMakingNews, adding some new, albeit well-known, voices to the NewMakingNews debate.

Kenn's observations show that Mr. Cannon has a history of pointing an accusatory finger at other researchers, including Kenn himself, asserting that they are "liars" among other insults; and of instigating smear campaigns against those who fail to meet the requirements of Cannon's own very particular and  stringent research standards.

It is clear that journalists Thomas and Quinn agree on a primary point: Cannon's approach to dealing with those he perceives as deserving of his cynical, hyper-critical scrutiny -- researchers and writers who fail to merit his seal of approval-- are targeted for nasty name-calling and a putative slander campaign. From what I have seen, Cannon's accusations are mudslinging of the lowest sort and do not have much --if anything-- to do with establishing truth or raising the generally accepted standards of research, per se. In fact I was not surprised when Kenn Thomas independently made very similar observations to my own, in additional messages to me.

Here, some selected excerpts. Thomas writes:

" Cannon's perception that mind control research has been taken over by religious fundamentalists reflects his own intolerance, but more importantly it masks his inability to come up with new research on the topic. Instead, he wants to do some literary parlor game finessing the history of conspiracy documents. A higher standard of evidence, indeed --thousands of people working over thirty years haven't come up with a high enough standard of evidence to prove the obvious fact that conspirators killed JFK. Again, it's a false dialogue inspired by the CSICOPS."

"Cannon's name-calling continues in this letter [ an e-mail from Cannon to Virginia McCullough ] as does his fantasy that he has some kind of role to play as a "Phil Klass" of conspiracy research. Calling Sherman Skolnick an old fool, saying that I have an attraction for 'skanky hos' --this really gets us closer to the truth now, doesn't it ? I think most people will see it for what it is, the language and attitude of despicable, immature people. It has nothing to do with "establishing truth" but with ego venting and factionalizing conspiracy researchers with false dialogue."

As for Kenn's observations, I couldn't agree more.  And... "skanky hos" ?  Say...What ? Clearly,  the insults Cannon hurls at others who are totally undeserving of such invective, have nothing whatsoever to do with "truth" or reality in any sense of the word, much less  "research standards".

Talk about sleazy smear tactics...It would appear that Cannon's own debauched psyche is the repository from which he draws the projections which he fires at others.

As regards more derisive comments Cannon has made about yours truly, as well as researchers John Quinn, Sherman Skolnick, the late Jim Keith and again, Kurt Billings, I'll get there momentarily.

But first I feel it is necessary to address some statements made by Virginia McCullough. In her latest editorial commentary, Lobs Lob More Shells in the Cannon War, Virginia describes her interactions with me by stating:

"In April 2000 Barbara Hartwell first contacted me wanting me to cover her allegations of MKULTRA abuse. She also expressed fear of a man named Ted Gunderson who had allegedly contacted her for speaking engagements."

It's important to me that I state my own point of view and that I make a few corrections.  In fact, it was Virginia McCullough who initiated contact with me.  My first contact with Virginia was an e-mail from her, complimenting me on an article I had written, The Scapegoat Syndrome, published by John Quinn of NewsHawk, with a preface written by John. My article focussed on refuting some false allegations made about John Quinn/NewsHawk by a man named Habib Peter Kawaja ( Desert Storm War Crimes Commission website) and his crony, journalist Carol Valentine. In a nutshell, I was able to refute these false allegations re NewsHawk by citing dated, published testimony and editorial comments by John Quinn and photographic evidence.

The Scapegoat Syndrome; Editorial Commentary on the Politics of Injustice

I subsequently wrote back to Virginia, thanking her for her interest in my work. I then perused the NewsMakingNews website, for which Virginia had sent me the link , finding the articles written by Virginia and others very much along the lines of my interests. 

Shortly thereafter, in an e-mail to Virginia, I mentioned my connection to Ted Gunderson. This was only a few months after I had broken off my association with Ted, primarily because of his allegations that Kurt Billings was a " CIA plant " --an allegation I told Ted I strongly disagreed with.(For more info re that situation, please see my article: Time to Set the Record Straight, published by SteamShovel Press:  and Conspiracy Planet: )

[Note: Conspiracy Planet and Steamshovel Press have since removed my articles from their sites.]

But I never at any time expressed to Virginia -nor to anyone else- a "fear" of Ted Gunderson. Anyone who knows me would probably find such an idea laughable. I don't know why Virginia has assumed I was afraid of Ted, but it simply isn't true.

What I did express to Virginia -in private communications- was that I was in fear for my life, due to serious threats and "warnings" issued to me by perpetrators of criminal activities; and intimidation tactics which had been used against me and certain of my associates, and which had a direct connection to my going public with my history of CIA mind control abuses. This was the primary reason I wanted to make my case even more public and was trying to find journalists open-minded enough to listen to my testimony.

I also explained that I found it very necessary to find out the truth regarding Ted Gunderson. I said that I was open-minded and willing to listen to anything anyone had to say, and to review any evidence anyone could provide, in efforts to resolve the dilemma I found myself in as a result of having invested a degree of trust in Ted prior to my serious disagreement with him. Virginia made very clear to me her opinion of Ted Gunderson; and I understood from the git-go that she regarded him with contempt, to say the least.

It's true that I had asked Virginia, as a journalist, if she would be interested in information about my case as a survivor of MKULTRA. I requested that at least initially, any information I shared with her  --aside from that which I had already made public-- be kept confidential and "off the record". This has been my standard policy when discussing my case with journalists or investigators, since I feel the need to exercise caution and discretion about what I reveal, given that I do not want to place myself, family members or others at unnecessary risk; and because if I speak publicly about certain sensitive issues or name names, it could work against me by compromising my credibility, unless and until I have substantive evidence to back up my claims.

I was surprised --and somewhat disturbed-- when shortly thereafter, I found my case posted on the Ted (Ex?) FBI (?) Agent Gunderson Data Dump. Of course, the fact that Ted had been working on my case had already been made public, as Ted and I had spoken together at conferences and in electronic media interviews. Although I was not particularly happy about my case being posted on the "dump", I knew that there was no breach of my confidence or legal rights involved and that NewsMakingNews had a right to use the link to my previously published material if they thought it to be newsworthy.  I understood that my personal feelings were not relevant to the larger public issues, nor should they be.

The "Barbara Hartwell link" posted by NewsMakingNews on the Ted G. "dump" was to a "security letter" I had posted on Mind Control Forum, dated Oct. 13, 1999. Ted was frequently mentioned in this letter, along with other former gov't employees and ex-military personnel, such as ex-CIA agent Gene "Chip" Tatum, with whom I had --publicly as well as privately-- discussed my background and involvement in CIA black ops, under mind control programming; and who were able to attest to the general veracity of some of my testimony -especially regarding the types of drugs which had been administered to me; the types of programming to which I was subjected and operations in which I had been utilized; the abductions by gov't agents and the nature of the attempts by CIA and other gov't agencies  to "neutralize" me --various harassment and intimidation tactics, as well as attempts on my life-- after I broke out of these black ops and related mind control programming.

I have not as yet  been able to collect the necessary "official" documents to verify my claims, but those --such as Gunderson and Tatum-- who were willing to publicly endorse my credibility, did so knowing that there was a dearth of hard evidence. They were simply willing to say that based on my anecdotal testimony and some detailed knowledge I had about these black ops, that they believed, in light of their own "insider" knowledge, that I was a credible source of accurate information. They never claimed to have "hard" evidence about my case, any more than I myself ever made that claim.

The letter of April 12, 2000, which Virginia wrote to me, and which she has posted on NewsMakingNews, contains her own opinions without necessarily reflecting mine. For instance, she says: "I don't know if you still believe in the Mark Phillips/Cathy O'Brien scenario or not...."  The thing is, I never "believed" in anything to do with O'Brien/Phillips. I had never mentioned these people to Virginia before she wrote the letter and in fact I don't even know them. In my e-mail reply to Virginia, I explained that.

The only contact I ever had with them was initiated by Mark Phillips, in June of 2000, when he tried to discredit my testimony by publishing a critical commentary in response to a report about computer hacking,  harassment with high-tech weaponry, and intimidation tactics used against my webmasters, which I had posted on American Patriot Friends Network.

To paraphrase the main point in Phillips's argument: Barbara Hartwell was making a mistake by publicizing the persecution and harassment being directed at her. If I would only hush up, insisted Phillips, I would not continue to be harassed.

Phillips also made it clear, by implication, that  he did not believe my claims about being a CIA black ops/mind control survivor were credible . He claimed that he and O'Brien were "experts" on mind control and seemed to think this was justification for offering his unsolicited advice, which he indicated was coming from a concern for my well-being.

I gave Phillips a piece of my mind (no pun intended) by telling him to mind his own business; and that I did not appreciate his presumptuous, arrogant attitude toward me, considering the fact that he does not know anything about me, nor about my background --except what he may have read on the Internet, or heard through the grapevine.

Since I'm on the general subject, I might as well mention what any reasonable, perceptive person who has ever been targeted for this sort of harassment should know: Guys like Phillips have their own agenda, one that could not possibly benefit any mind control survivor. Attempting to silence mind control survivors when they talk about harassment can only mean one thing: Those who try to foist such advice on the targeted individuals are part of the cover-up; those who have something to lose if the truth comes out.

And I must say that Phillips's M.O. seems suspiciously similar to that of Cannon: They both demand that hard evidence and documents be provided by victims/survivors/researchers when speaking out on any issue. For most of us, hard evidence is hard to come by; and for some of us, waiting for such evidence before offering anecdotal testimony might be like signing our own death warrants.

Virginia as well, mentions the "proof" of mind control which I failed to provide. I had tried to explain to her --as I have explained to many others-- that one of my greatest sources of frustration is that I have been able to gather very little hard evidence of the MKULTRA abuses which were perpetrated on me. The reasons may be familiar to other survivors. The agencies involved in the human rights violations take great pains to make sure no documents are readily available to investigators, survivors or their advocates.

It costs money to do a thorough investigation or to hire someone for that purpose. I am financially destitute -- and have been ever since I broke out of the black programs; so poor that I can't even make a phone call out of my local area. I have no resources which would allow me to travel in search of documentation, nor for any other relevant  purpose. But I will say that I will be more than happy to share any documentation I do get with NewsMakingNews or any other journalists because publication of this documentation can only help my case.

Although I have made several attempts, over the past seven years, I have not yet found an attorney who would touch my case with a ten foot pole, not necessarily because it doesn't have merit. Rather, the attorneys I spoke with were fearful of the consequences to themselves; or were told in no uncertain terms to back off; or did not want to be bothered with a case in which there was little chance of remuneration.

Most lawyers, very simply, and understandably, do not want to find themselves in a showdown with CIA or any other corrupt and powerful government agency. Considering the fact that my own life has been all but destroyed by these very agencies, I can't say I blame the lawyers for not wanting to get involved. And so, most of us are left to fend for ourselves and to investigate our own cases as best we can.

Speaking strictly for myself, my primary motive for wanting to collect hard evidence for my own case is that I want to see justice done for what these criminals have done to me, my family, my friends and any other innocent people who were victimized by mind control and other related abuses. Without enough hard evidence, I can't file a lawsuit.

I should make it clear that I don't otherwise feel the need to "prove" my claims to anyone else; whether they be journalists, researchers or the general public. They are free to read my testimony, do their own research and draw their own conclusions. As many of us --the survivors-- know all too well, once we go public with our testimony, we will be met with a certain degree of incredulity; if not derision and hostility by people who don't want to believe that our government could commit such violations against its own citizens; or by those who have a vested interest in continuing a cover-up. As for witnesses: Most of the witnesses I had have been intimidated and will no longer even speak to me; much less come forward with testimony which could help my case.

Getting back to Virginia's recently published letter to me, and referred to in her editorial commentary, Virginia wrote:  " I assumed Hartwell got the message [the letter] because shortly thereafter she sent me an email telling me that her friend Kurt Billings was helping radio talk show host Art Bell in his lawsuit against former FBI agent/Satanist theorist Ted Gunderson. She contacted me and requested that I send her and Billings a significant amount of documentation on Ted Gunderson which I gladly did."

Why Virginia says she had to "assume'" I got her message, I don't understand. Because in fact, I answered Virginia's letter immediately, thanking her for taking the time to write out her thoughtful and detailed comments relating to mind control; Gunderson; O'Brien; Phillips; Taylor/Ford; etc.

I had asked Virginia to keep my e-mails to her private and confidential, so I won't go into further detail. But I will say that I did not request information on Ted Gunderson because of the Art Bell lawsuit, which was a separate issue entirely; one that I won't comment on here since I did not become directly involved, though I was aware that Kurt Billings had at one time been in contact with Art Bell's lawyers in connection with the case.

Virginia made the offer to send the hardcopy documents to me and the main reason I wanted them was so that I could have some documentation to work with which might be able to verify --or contrariwise, reveal the flaws-- in some of my own research. And of course, so that I could develop a more informed opinion about what I believed to be the truth about Ted Gunderson.

I received by post, from Virginia, a box of hardcopy documentation. Some of it was said to come from Michael Riconosciuto's files and some --but not most-- of the documents were connected to Ted Gunderson. Many of the documents and newspaper articles addressed other issues such as Promis/Inslaw; the death of Danny Casolaro; the IBCC; defense contracting firms connected to Riconosciuto and others allegedly part of the "Octopus", etc.

But even though I greatly appreciated that Virginia sent me the documents, that did not necessarily make it any easier for me to gather evidence about my own case. If I was unable to reciprocate, by making "proof a two way street" it was because it was not in my power to do so. I'm sorry if Virginia feels that I did not honor my part of what she apparently considered a "quid pro quo" deal. I have been working for years trying to collect documentation regarding my involvement in MKULTRA and other black operations.

As any survivor of one of these projects knows, it can be next to impossible to get our hands on evidence in the form of hardcopy documents. I don't even have access to my own childhood medical records!  "Coincidentally " all my records and those of my siblings, were destroyed in a fire which consumed the office of the family physician a number of years ago. One of my family members cannot even get access to her own medical records from NIH (National Institute of Health) --notoriously hand-in-glove with CIA in its involvement in the medical and genetic-engineering aspects of black projects. And for that, I do have some evidence and am working to collect more.

I have family members employed by CIA and NIH and predictably, I haven't spoken to any of them in years, not since I broke out of the black programs. It seems they don't want anything to do with me, and I don't have to guess why. They've even stopped sending Christmas cards! I love my family and feel hurt by their attitude, but there's not much I can do to change things on that front so I just have to live with it and pray that someday they will see fit to break through their denial and indoctrination and see these agencies for what they really are.

Now, back to Martin Cannon. I should say that I have read some of his articles on the Internet and I give him credit for being a talented writer. I won't go into a long-winded analysis of his research or viewpoints; I will only say that "debunking" seems to be a major thrust of his writings. For the most part, even when their criticism is directed at me, I try not to waste time arguing with the debunkers. When necessary, I simply publicly make my position clear and do my best to correct any false allegations they have made.

Many debunkers--especially those focusing on the field of psychic/paranormal and UFO research-- have over the course of the past twenty-some-odd  years set their sights on me and my colleagues. But being caught in the crosshairs of the debunkers' starlight scopes doesn't really bother me.  At times, the debunkers and nay-sayers have actually provided an element of comic relief and entertainment, in what has otherwise been a somewhat grim scenario. But then, I have developed a thick skin and don't much care what anyone thinks of me. When I find misinformation or disinformation being disseminated, I try to correct it as best I can and move on to more important things.

In an e-mail sent to Virginia McCullough by Martin Cannon and copied to me, Cannon writes in the subject line: "Final (I hope) response to the cranks".  It comes as no surprise to me that Cannon thinks I am a "crank". In fact, coming from someone of Mr. Cannon's ilk, I can only take it as a compliment.

Cannon writes: "Let's all be clear on one fact: I did NOT ask for, or expect, that private letter [his letter to BIllings] to be published."  Well then, why did he forward his "private" letter, written to Kurt Billings, to NewsMakingNews?  I think that's a rhetorical question, and one y'all reading this don't need me to provide the answer to.

In reply to my statement that Kurt happens to be a good friend of mine, Cannon quips: "Loyalty is admirable, even when misplaced."  On this point, I would have to question whether Mr. Cannon can even fathom the objective concept of loyalty, much less presume to comment on the loyalties of others.

Cannon continues by presuming my ignorance of law: "Babs should read more about libel law.....I can recommend a few other books if she wants to escape her current state of ignorance."

Very gracious of him, but he seems to assume much, while knowing little, regarding the level of my ignorance.

He assumes --falsely-- that I know nothing more than a few excerpts from books which I merely quoted as sources in order to illustrate my point: That Cannon's allegations were potentially libelous, since they were clearly made with intent of malice against Kurt Billings. I would hardly have included a lengthy legal brief --who would want to be bothered reading it?

Cannon claims his malicious comments about Billings to be "protected speech...all protected speech".

Cannon further states that  "Kurt Billings is a public figure.....The courts have long given people wide latitude in offering opinion on public figures."

In fact, whether or not Kurt is designated as a "public figure" would come from an opinion issued by the court in a preliminary hearing, before any such libel case could be litigated-- and NOT from Mr. Cannon. And in fact, Mr. Cannon's personal opinion is irrelevant in any legal sense.

In my humble opinion --despite my "ignorance"-- I think it most likely that Kurt Billings would be deemed by the court to be what is known as a "limited purpose public figure".  Which changes the rules for "protected speech" considerably. But hey, what do I know?  According to Mr. Cannon: "Babs knows zilch about the law."

But there's more: According to Mr. Cannon I am not only "ignorant" I am also "fascistic" due to his presumption that my "inability to recognize"  that in his "private" (?!) communication to Billings, he had a "right to negatively react to any author's work"...." He is a public figure. I have in private, attacked his published writings. What is wrong with that ?"

Well, I guess Mr. Cannon sees nothing wrong with that, but in an ethical --even if not in a legal sense-- I'm sure there are many people who would beg to differ. But then no one could accuse Cannon of being an ethicist.

According to Cannon, yours truly, Barbara Hartwell, is not only an ignorant, fascistic crank, she is also a "gullible fool" along with John Quinn, Sherman Skolnick, Kurt Billings and doubtless, others too numerous to mention. Well, at least I'm in good company. Thank you Mr. Cannon, for the backhanded compliment though I'm sure you did not  not intend it as such.

Finally, back to Kurt Billings. In the same letter to Virginia McCullough Cannon states: "Kurt Billings makes a living lying to the public. Perhaps he does not lie deliberately --nevertheless he lies "

Now I have some things to say about Kurt Billings, which I probably should have said in my original response to Martin Cannon's letter. Better late than never. In fact, I have never seen Kurt Billings speak anywhere in public  without a fistful of documents or heard him on a radio program without quoting directly from government documents, technology patents or newspaper articles as his sources. Kurt's presentations are impressive because speculation plays no role in the information he presents. As far as "lies"?  I've never heard him lie about anything.

And if Mr. Cannon ever took the trouble to watch one of Kurt's videotapes, he might realize that the tapes Kurt sells to earn his living contain detailed information about mind control programming; the classified, unclassified and declassified technologies and hi-tech weaponry deployed by gov't agencies in implementing mass mind control, as well as the specifics of certain projects such as MKULTRA and some of its subdivisions. In fact, I have never met anyone who was as knowledgeable on the combined technical and psychological aspects of mind control, with just a few exceptions, such as Michael Ash, a clinical hypnotherapist, robotics engineer and a survivor of the Montauk Project.

I defend and support Kurt not just because he is a friend, and not just because I have loyalty to my friends. Kurt is one of very few people who had any real understanding of my own experiences with mind control, or of the family background I come from. Kurt's background is strikingly similar to mine....CIA all the way.

And lastly, Kurt may be a Christian, but he does not attempt to impose his religious beliefs on others. In his public presentations he states that he is a Christian, but leaves it at that. The thrust of his presentations is information. Information which is needed for the general public to understand the massive violations of human rights which are instrumental in all government mind control programs. I for one, would like to see more mind control researchers come forward with the quality of information and evidence Kurt presents.

Mr. Cannon may wish to spend his time debunking the research of others and starting petty disputes about the existence of the Illuminati and the New World Order, Satanists, long-dead philosophers, religious figures, scam artists and what not. But for the rest of us, there's real work to do: Like bringing forth every piece of information, documentation and testimony we can get our hands on.  And doing all in our power to make our research public.

People like Kurt Billings, Kenn Thomas, John Quinn and Sherman Skolnick have better things to do than wage war with debunkers and intellectual snobs like Martin Cannon. And I for one am very glad that they do.

Ted Gunderson, John DeCamp, Doug Millar: Major Promotion by a "Dr. A. True Ott"

"Dr. A. True Ott", Radio Host of The Story Behind the Story, RBN & Promoter of Ted Gunderson, Doug Millar, John DeCamp

I recently posted two reports (January 25, 2010), one exposing Ted Gunderson and Doug Millar, both interviewed on Republic Broadcasting Network, on a program called The Story Behind the Story, hosted by a Dr. A. True Ott.

The second report exposed Ken Adachi, a PR shill for ex-FBI agent Ted Gunderson, who has been running a massive libel campaign against Barbara Hartwell since 2001.

Just today, I tuned in once again to RBN.  Ott's show was airing. Now, the "special guest" was former senator John DeCamp, with second billing going, once again, to Doug Millar, who apparently "arranged" the interview with DeCamp.

I now must suspect this "Dr. A. True Ott", as he has been avidly promoting these criminals and liars, Gunderson, Millar and DeCamp. Ott even described Doug Millar as "my good friend."

Ott also described DeCamp as "one of the true American heroes".  (That's exactly what government shill Alex Jones said about DeCamp, who has also been a guest on his program.)

So, as I see it, there are only two possibilities: Ott is either duped by these frauds and liars, or he is in collusion with them, and part of the problem.

But anyway, the readers of this site might be interested to know what John Stadtmiller, owner of RBN (on which Ott airs his program), has to say about Gunderson and DeCamp, as well as about their little stooge, Tim White.

Both Gunderson and DeCamp have sicced thier lackey, Tim White, on a number of legitimate whistleblowers (including Barbara Hartwell), especially those of us who have exposed the criminal activities of Gunderson, DeCamp and their FBI/CIA cronies.

DeCamp sicced criminal stalker and predicate felon, Tim White, on me in 2005, in order to promote his threats of a "lawsuit for libel" against Barbara Hartwell.

Here's an excerpt from a report titled, Polluting the Patriot and 9-11 Truth Movements. 

Make of it what you will.....

January 25, 2010


Now, to some of the real "sources" of Tim White's so-called "inside information". Ex-FBI agent Ted Gunderson, current de facto (and formerly-official) COINTELPRO operative, who feeds White most of the "inside info" (read: lies) which he then disseminates all over the World Wide Web (White boasts of belonging to over 100 Yahoo! groups) is certainly foremost among them.

Then, there is Ted's crony, former senator John DeCamp, in collusion with Gunderson for many years to run coverups of black operations, mind control, child sex abuse and pornography rings. Oh sure, they present a fine front operation as "heroes" claiming to be "exposing" such things. But the facts speak for themselves and nothing could be further from the truth. These liars (and others in their cabal) have hoodwinked more Americans, some of whom are/were victims of these black ops, than any other bogus patriots I know of.

In fact, on the National Intel Report, the same program on which Tim White appeared, normally hosted by John Stadtmiller, some comments were made by Stadtmiller himself, regarding Tim White, Ted Gunderson and John DeCamp. This broadcast aired on January 16, 2006. Karl Schwarz was the guest on that evening, and near the end of the program, I decided to call in when they opened the phone lines.

I didn't call in to talk about White, Gunderson or DeCamp, nor did I bring up their names myself. The reason I called [...irrelevant to this excerpt, see report for more] 

After Karl commented on some of this, John Stadtmiller brought up Tim White's name, in connection with what he called the "cabal" which includes John DeCamp and Ted Gunderson.

What's more, here is how Stadtmiller regards these two: He said he doesn't trust either one of them.  And, that if the two of them, Gunderson and DeCamp, were to burst into flames through spontaneous combustion, he wouldn't cross the street to throw a cup of water on them! Nor would I, and I know many others who feel the same.

And I very much doubt that Tim White would ever have appeared on the National Intel Report, had John Stadtmiller not been on vacation....though this is not meant to reflect negatively on Jim Fetzer, who most likely had never heard of Tim White until he barged his way onto the program with his claims of "inside info, never before made public."

John Stadtmiller then mentioned the fact that Ted Gunderson had married the widow of Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan. Diana Rively is her name and I spoke to her for hours on the phone when Ted called to tell me about the marriage in the spring of 1998. During that time, Ted was living with Diana and her mother in California...before the annulment, that is.

Yet Ted Gunderson DENIED that he had ever married Diana Rively. Karl Schwarz told me that during 2005, Gunderson was trying to make contact with him, presumably connected to Karl's 9-11 investigations and activism and/or his book, One Way Ticket to Crawford Texas.

Karl decided to avoid him, as he was rightfully suspicious of Gunderson. But Gunderson got his phone number, one way or another, and one day Karl picked up the phone and Ted was on the line. So Karl immediately said to Ted, I have one question for you: Were you married to the widow of Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan?

Ted said, NO, I never was. Karl hung up on him.

Ted called back and Karl asked, once again, Were you ever married to the widow of Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan?

Ted: No. Once again, Karl hung up on him.

Again, the ringing phone. Karl: Last chance, Ted. Were you ever married to the widow of Anton LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan?

Ted: No....

Karl: Three strikes, Ted. You're out! Karl hung up on Ted Gunderson and never spoke to him again. And I know that Karl despises liars as much as I do, and just like me, considers it his duty to expose them.

In addition to my phone conversations with Diana Rively, widow of Anton LaVey, I also have in my evidence files a handwritten note from Ted Gunderson (1998, the year of the marriage and annulment) which states that "the marriage did not work out."

Ted Gunderson lied to Karl Schwarz, just as he has lied to many others, including the general public, about a lot of things, such as selling Stinger missiles to Osama bin Laden in 1979, while still working for the FBI. He only admitted to that particular crime later (on a program, ironically called Fountain of Truth, hosted by another liar and bogus patriot, Larry Lawson) after a big brouhaha connected to GCN radio.

Barbara Hartwell Exposes Ken Adachi as Liar, Stooge and Shill (2001)

Note: This letter was written in the Spring of 2001. I had never heard of this buffoon, Ken Adachi, until he came out of the proverbial woodwork to attack me in defense of Ted Gunderson, for whom he serves as a PR shill, stooge and gopher.

Original Source:

Gunderson Data Dump

Ken Adachi never published my letter to the editor on his site (naturally), but he has continued, throughout all the ensuing years, to libel and slander Barbara Hartwell.  

Adachi has even gone so far as to dedicate a special section of his website to libeling Barbara Hartwell. Adachi calls it: Barbara Hartwell, Founder & CEO of Liars, Inc.

Ironically, Adachi is the liar, not Barbara Hartwell.  Adachi has been exposed as a liar and charlatan many, many times, by many, many people and organizations, all legitimate journalists and expositors of government corruption.  (See reports on this site re liar, Ken Adachi.) 

For the public record, Ken Adachi is a PR shill for ex-FBI agent Ted Gunderson, and is involved in criminal activities, including racketeering and the solicitation of crimes against targets (including Barbara Hartwell) by publishing PRIVATE information, such as UNLISTED  telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and street addresses.

Adachi is criminal scum, and I say that with a vast knowledge of all the damage he has done to innocent people's lives --most notably, the children victimized by the criminals, pimps and child rapists he supports and defends.

In addition to Ted Gunderson, some of Adachi's known accomplices are: Tim White; Brenda Negri; Todd Brendan Fahey; Don Nicoloff; Larry Lawson; John DeCamp; Don Stacey; Marilyn Guinnane; Susan Ford aka "Brice Taylor"; Doug Millar; Jon Gentry; Pamela Schuffert; Barbara Crouse Brown; Charles Stewart; John Allman; "Xena Carpenter" (identity unknown).

Adachi has promoted and/or defended and/or supported (including financially) all of these criminal perpetrators; and "coincidentally" all of these perps have slandered and/or libeled and/or harassed and/or threatened Barbara Hartwell. What a striking coincidence!

Adachi (like his overlord, Ted Gunderson) claims I am CIA.  Adcahi lies...and lies...and lies...

May Ken Adachi reap what he has sown, and may God judge him accordingly for the outrageous lies he has published, which destroy the lives of legitimate patriots, journalists, whistleblowers and expositors of government crimes and corruption. 

But without further adieu, here's my letter to Ken Aadchi.

January 25, 2010

Barbara Hartwell's Letter to the Editor: Ken Adachi, Government Shill/Stooge for Ex-FBI Agent Ted Gunderson

March, 2001

Dear Mr. Adachi:

You will be receiving a commentary from me in the near future in reference to the report you published by Ted Gunderson.

But for now it is important that I make it clear that you have published misinformation regarding myself, in your "Editor's Note" which I hold you directly responsible for.

It is one thing for you to publish Ted's testimony regarding me. It is quite another for you, as an editor, to make false assumptions and then state them as if they were facts. For instance, I never "became convinced that Ted was a double agent".  I have never stated such a thing to anyone --publicly nor privately.  Nor did I ever "join in with others striving to discredit him". These are lies, Mr. Adachi.  And you are merely publishing your personal opinions about a situation you know nothing about.

You don't know me; therefore your allegations are based on nothing but hearsay and uninformed speculation. I will refute them based on facts and the testimony of credible witnesses; rather than the erroneous suppositions and spreading of misinformation which evidently define your concept of "journalism".

I also notice that you don't state your name when writing the "editor's note". Yet you make a point of insisting that others state their names right up front when sending e-mail to you. I had to go to the home page on your site to find out your name.

Perhaps if you adopted a more professional approach--like maybe checking your facts and establishing the credibility of your sources-- before writing your editorial commentaries-- you might have some credibility as regards the subjects you write about.

But as far as I am concerned you have no credibility whatsoever.  I'm sure that other discerning individuals --especially those who know me and are familiar with my case-- may come to the same conclusion without having to hear it from me. However, I do find it necessary to state my position up front, in advance of writing a more detailed commentary, in order to minimize any potential damage to my reputation which may result from false allegations which are the product of your own ignorance.

This letter will also be posted on other websites and forwarded by e-mail to other concerned parties.  And if you have even a shred of objectivity, or journalistic integrity, in the interest of fairness, you will post this letter on your own site as well.

Barbara Hartwell
