Please read PART ONE before continuing.
PART TWO I will cover the time period beginning in late 2013 and will
focus (once again...how tiresome it gets...) on refuting the many
lies promoted by Howard Nemaizer, especially in his outrageously
defamatory smear piece of November, 2015, which has now been spread
far and wide by other like-minded malicious liars.
stated in PART ONE, I will use Nemaizer's own words as evidence that
he discredits himself in his efforts to cover his wrongdoing by
fabrications, character assassination, bearing false witness, and
leveling false accusations against the injured party, Barbara
Hartwell. The false narrative promoted by Howard Nemaizer has
absolutely no basis in fact, and nowhere within it can the truth be
2013, I was facing the loss of my home for the second time in three
years, along with most of the possessions I'd gathered over a
before I go further, I find it important to explain WHY this happened
to me. One of the primary goals of the evildoers who run a
neutralization campaign against a targeted government whistleblower
is to drive the Target to financial destitution and ultimately,
homelessness. In my case, after many years of persecution, they
finally succeeded. (I'm sure those cotton-pickin' bastards were
popping the champagne corks and gleefully high-fiving each other down
in Langley, Virginia. And as far as I am concerned, they can go
straight to Hell!...where they are already heading in a handcart.)
make matters worse, the Target is likely to be abandoned and/or
betrayed by at least some of the people from whom he/she may have had
a reasonable expectation of support. The sad truth is that most
people won't support the Target who is openly and unabashedly
standing up against a tyrannical federal government. They cave in to
intimidation tactics, or they buy into the lies disseminated in the
carefully crafted defamation campaign, meant to discredit the Target,
to foment suspicion, and ruin his/her good name.
often, those close to the Target flee in fear, blaming the Target for
all the evils which befall him/her. It's one of the oldest stories
there is...blaming the victim. Blaming the victim, rather than caring
enough about the truth, and the principles for which the victim
stands, to place the blame squarely where it belongs: on the
classic pattern repeats itself, time and time again, and is anything
but accidental. It is by design: Isolation. Alienation. Deprivation.
They aim to see that the Target is without resources, under constant
stress, and left to stand alone against relentless persecution.
Eventually (they hope) it will lead to a total collapse, or better
yet, the death of the Target, which they can “plausibly deny” had
anything to do with their campaign of havoc and destruction.
who believes that the criminal perps of these campaigns don't have
the resources or the vast network of accomplices to achieve their
goals, is greatly mistaken. The adversary here is the most powerful
government on the face of the earth, which is awash in corruption so
deep it can barely be imagined –except by those of us who have seen
it firsthand, by personal and professional experience.
fact is that there is a war on whistleblowers, waged by the U.S.
Government. Nothing new here, it has happened throughout the history
of the world. Stand up against tyranny and corruption, and you will
be targeted by the perpetrators of evil, every time.
am only one of many whistleblowers to be driven into such a
catastrophic state of affairs. In fact, this has happened in most
every case I have investigated, as well as those credible cases I
have read or heard about. It has happened to my friends and
colleagues who are whistleblowers, former FBI, IRS, CIA, DOD, DIA,
law enforcement, military, etc. etc.
case I know best is that of former FBI agent/whistleblower Geral
Sosbee. Decorated combat veteran (Vietnam). Attorney (former
prosecutor and judge.) Recipient of letters of commendation from the
FBI (including for Civil Rights), and of the American Jurisprudence
yet, because he honored his oath to defend the Constitution, against
all enemies, foreign and domestic, because he defended the
unalienable rights of ALL (incuding suspects), because he reported
the crimes of his colleagues in the FBI, refusing to be complicit in
any wrongdoing, he was forced out of the FBI under threats of losing
his liberty, his sanity was impugned, and he has suffered more than
three decades of political persecution.
by his former colleagues, his friends and his family. Driven into
bankruptcy, then homelessness. Forced for a time to live in his car,
unable to find a place to live, as no landlord would rent to him, a
result of the FBI's defamation campaign against him. There are no
exaggerations here, no fabrications, only the hard and irrefutable
facts (documented in great detail on his website, Sosbee v. FBI), in
citing just a portion of the civil and criminal offenses suffered by
give these examples in order to provide context for the dire
situation in which I found myself in 2013. I did nothing to bring
this situation on myself. At least nothing wrongful, unlawful,
unethical or irresponsible. This is simply what the whistleblower can
expect for exposing the truth and taking a stand for Liberty, and
against tyranny and corruption. My situation was the direct result of
the government's campaign to neutralize me. I know this to be the
truth, for I have lived it. And I don't give a tinker's damn who
when someone (in this case, Howard Nemaizer) takes it upon himself to
present a false narrative about MY life in a PUBLIC VENUE, I will
stand in defense of the truth, and of my honor. And as always, the
readers may make of it what they will. No matter what anyone
believes, no matter the many lies told by my enemies, it won't change
the objective truth, or the facts.
had no resources, no reliable source of material support, and no one
I could depend on for any type of assistance.
I knew that there was no possibility of staying at my home in Maine,
since I could no longer pay the rent or bills, I began to search for
some solution (even if only temporary) which would allow me to
survive what I knew was coming. The deadline by which I had to vacate
my home was the end of November, 2013.
had no money to rent another place to live, and I'd had the same
experience as Geral Sosbee: After I lost my first home in Maine (also
the result of machinations by the government), no landlord would rent
to me, once they put my name in a search engine and found the results
of the massive defamation campaign –in fact, exactly the type of
malicious lies, the trash now being promoted by Howard Nemaizer, as
well as other like-minded enemies of Barbara Hartwell.
the period of time since I left CIA operations, in 1994, I had been
forced to spend a total of two years (1995-97) and eight months
(May-December, 2010) in motels, with my possessions in storage. It
was CIA's way of keeping me under unofficial “house arrest”. But
as of 2013, I was forced to sell nearly everything I owned, give it
to charity, or leave it behind, as I could not afford to pay for
was in such abject poverty that I was forced to go to food pantries,
such as those run by the Salvation Army, as I could not afford even
to buy groceries. The Priest at my church helped as much as he
could, but the church had limited resources. Other Christian
charities in my neighborhood also gave what they could, for which I
was grateful. It enabled me to stay alive, but only just barely,
still going without many of the most basic necessities.
months before the deadline, as soon as I was certain of the date I
needed to leave, I contacted everyone I could think of, those I
thought might be able and willing to help me. But all of my close
friends and family lived hundreds, or thousands of miles away, and
lacked the resources to assist me.
should mention a very important point: that I had never asked Howard
Nemaizer for any kind of help, much less to provide sanctuary. Such a
thought wouldn't have occurred to me. But Nemaizer, entirely of his
own volition, made an offer of sanctuary, and despite all my efforts
to find another situation, it was the only offer I received.
knowing what else I could possibly do, in order to survive, I
accepted his offer. Which turned out to be one of the most disastrous
mistakes of my life, resulting only in more losses, more damages,
more extreme stress, and some of the most disrespectful and abusive
treatment I had ever received, from Howard and Maureen Nemaizer and
their ill-mannered, low-class friends.
fact, this offer of “sanctuary”, and the horrible events which
accompanied it, placed me in a far more life-threatening state of
dire emergency than the one from which I had come. As stated in a
previous report, Out of the frying pan into the fire...
had no idea what I was walking into, because Howard Nemaizer's offer
of “sanctuary” turned out to be anything but. For, as far as it
would be possible to do, he had completely misrepresented the entire
situation. He lied to me, withheld vital information, failed to tell
me the real nature of the “acommodations” and circumstances, made
false promises and assurances, all of which combined to cause
disastrous consequences to me.
only did Howard Nemaizer lie to me in his original offer, he also
lied after the fact, about his deception and his wrongful actions, in
the twisted and libelous version of events he has presented for
public perusal. What he has done, all told, is beyond despicable.
again, in defense of the truth, and of my honor, I won't allow the
lies to stand. For me, there is nothing that generates outrage as
much as a liar, especially one who bears false witness against me in
attempts to negate everything I stand for, who insults my honor and
then arrogantly thinks he can get away with placing the blame on me
for his own wrongful and injurious actions.
things are important to state right up front: That I explained to him
in great detail exactly what my situation was. And that, based on
what I told him, his offer was given with certain explicit
assurances, all of which he reneged on.
he told me the truth beforehand, I could have made an informed
decision to accept his offer –or upon consideration, decline the
offer. But Howard Nemaizer, by his many misrepresentations, deprived
me of that opportunity.
have listed these assurances in a previous report. I won't repeat
them here, except what I consider to be the two most important:
was assured that I would “not end up homeless” in the street, but
that I would have a safe place to stay (his house) until I could find
a way to relocate. He actually stated this as a “promise.”
was told that he had discussed the situation with his wife, and that
there was no problem in that regard. I was assured that, “we have
the room”, that I would be welcome, and that it was “okay” with
in all Nemaizer's assurances, nothing could have been further from
of the promised “sanctuary”, until such time that I was able to
find a way to relocate, the reality of what I endured at the hands of
Howard Nemaizer almost beggars belief. I have already documented all
this in greater detail than will be given here. In the interest of
brevity, the following will suffice.
“room” in Nemaizer's house was a cold, dark and dirty basement,
with no source of heat and no natural light, permeated by damp,
mildew and toxic black mold and infested with insects. There were
leaking pipes and a rumbling furnace, among other dreadful
“amenities”. It was unfit for human (or animal) habitation. If
that alone were not insufferable, read on...
Nemaizer's actions resulted not in any kind of “help”, but
rather in 29 days (to be exact, from November 22 through December 21,
2013) of hellish stress and trauma, which ended with an edict from
Maureen Nemaizer that I, a disabled senior citizen, utterly destitute
and under persecution, must be thrown into the street, having nowhere
else to go.
to some of Howard Nemaizer's lies, as given in his smear piece of
has been much omitted from her attacks like the money I gave her and
took her in when she faced homelessness. Barbara Hartwell lived at my
home rent free in “squalor” for six weeks eating fried shrimp and
filet minion provided by yours truly.”
Nemaizer's claim of “six weeks” (42 days) is a lie. As stated, it
was 29 days.
as Nemaizer was well aware, I am a vegetarian, as I have been for
well over 40 years. So he lies, misrepresenting me yet again, while
misspelling “filet minion”. It is “mignon”, fool. And no, I
don't eat the dead bodies of tortured, brutally slaughtered animals.
wife didn’t like the idea at all, but she went along with it and we
took Barbara in.”
Nemaizer failed to inform me of the truth: that his wife, as he
states here, “did not like the idea at all.” I had no way of
knowing this until after I arrived there. In fact, he stated that his
wife would welcome me into their home. He lied. Had I known the
truth, I would never have accepted the offer, no matter how desperate
my circumstances. I would never set foot in a place where I was
unwelcome. That is a matter of honor, one I'm sure Nemaizer is
incapable of understanding.
those 6 weeks she didn’t lift a finger to help around the house and
even disobeyed wishes to make her presence living in Our home a
secret from my in-laws and neighbors, who ultimately informed my
landlord, by which time my wife was already quite sick of Barbara and
her non-conformity of house rules.”
the lie of “6 weeks”. At no time before I accepted his offer was
I informed by Howard or Maureen Nemaizer that my presence was to be
kept a “secret”. This, like so many other “conditions” was
dropped as a bombshell, after I was already there.
at no time agreed to such a condition, nor to participate in the
deceptions of these two liars. Maureen Nemaizer in fact fabricated a
story and lied to her parents, without my knowledge or consent (sound
familiar?) and then expected me to become a part of the deception. As
for the neighbors? I did not know
any of them and never once spoke to any of them. It was none of the
for the landlord, again, I was not informed beforehand of any
conditions regarding him. If busybody neighbors “reported” the
presence of a guest in their house, it had nothing whatsoever to do
with anything I said or did. As for “disobeying house rules”, I
think it might behoove Howard Nemaizer to make a reality check and
rein in his delusions of grandeur, if he thinks I am required to
“obey” his whims.
first opportunity BH had to “blow her cover” with my in-laws
happened that Thanksgiving eve, when she claimed being so exhausted,
she couldn’t wait for my in-laws to leave and reported she was
going to go to bed, causing immediate and constant conflict. BH knew
that day that we told her NOT TO LET ON she was living with us to Our
with the capital O in “Our inlaws”? And they are HIS inlaws, not
hers. Or, is he perhaps affecting the Royal "We"?
I never agreed to participate in Howard and Maureen Nemaizer's
deceptions. Nor was I a part of an "undercover" operation.
If Howard Nemaizer is so afraid of incurring the
disapproval of his inlaws, that's his problem, not mine. But coward
that he is, he couldn't man up and stand for his right to determine
what goes on in his own home.
me, the 6 weeks were full of conflict between me and my wife. I had
Barbara’s back. In retrospect, I realized how I was duped.”
No, I don't "believe" him. Why should anyone believe this pathological liar? Again, it was 29 days, NOT 6 weeks.
conflict between Howard Nemaizer and his wife he now blames on me?
Had I been told the truth about this dysfunctional family and their
routine habits of lying and deception, in which I was expected to
participate as a “condition” of “house rules”, I would never
have set foot in that godforsaken place.
Nemaizer claims he had my back? Not by a long shot. By my standards,
a liar can never be trusted to have anyone's back. For if he lies to
others, it is certain that he can be expected to lie to you. Which he
did, countless times.
“After BH was forced to
leave by my landlord, I stored her belongings for more than 6 months
lies. I was not forced to leave by his landlord. The truth is, an
edict was issued by Maureen Nemaizer. Specifically that I be OUT BY
NOON on December 21, 2013.
though I was hounded relentlessly by this hysterical, whining harpy,
from the first time this directive was issued, I immediately made it
very clear that, no matter what else happened, she need have no
worries, that I would be leaving. I would never stay in a place where
I am not welcome. Again, it is a matter of honor, something these
people clearly do not begin to understand.
possessions were stored there for 5 months, not 6.
when finally I was able to scrape up the money to hire movers to
retrieve my things, I discovered, much to my dismay, that Nemaizer
had stolen a number of valuable things from me (including mail
addressed to me, forwarded to his house after I left).
add insult to injury, Nemaizer, the busybody, blabbed my personal
business to the movers, invading my privacy, after promising me he
would not discuss my business with anyone. He later fabricated a
ridiculous story about this, in attempts to cover his wrongdoing, and
published it along with his many other outrageous lies.
PART THREE, I will conclude this report, addressing Howard Nemaizer's
subsequent exploitation and misrepresentation of my name and website, followed by his defamatory assaults and monstrous invasions of my and my family's privacy.
More lies will be exposed and refuted.
