Letter from a Reader: COINTELPRO & Government Harassment

I received this letter from a reader by post earlier this month. I have left out her name and location to protect her privacy. My response follows.

Dear Barbara Hartwell Percival,

I want to thank you for your website. I have read small parts of it and intend to get to all of it.

Your courage and divine guidance to do this service to God is unique.  Your concern for the abuses of power and threats to Liberty and the gutsy actions you take to make a difference helped me a lot.

I am at a crossroads with increasing COINTELPRO and worse government harassment after a whistleblowing incident years ago. The pressure is causing constant breakdowns and I'm now on disability with 3 kids. We're doing okay but it keeps getting worse so I am listing my escape/fight back/ other defense options and not willing to continue to be terrorized and my kids interfered with.

I often scan your web pages, watch Snowden videos and research Internet sites to wake up to these things.

Thank you and God bless you. I hope you get this. They tamper with everything.


A Reader

Dear Reader,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write to me and for your kind words. Having been a Target of counterintelligence operations for many years, and a veteran of counterintelligence wars, I think I can say that I have some understanding of what you are going through.

Each case of persecution against a Target may be different, depending on the circumstances and the identity of the Target, but I have found that there is a basic pattern in most cases.

The method for targeting may be  generally summed up in three words: Isolation. Alienation. Deprivation.

The perpetrators of these campaigns aim to destroy the life of the Target systematically by driving him into a place (psychologically and materially) where all his support systems to sustain life are removed, one way or another.

They will sabotage your relationships with family, friends, colleagues, thus alienating them from you, through no fault of your own, even when you have not done anything to deserve the mistreatment you often receive. Worse, you will be blamed by others for situations and events over which you have little or no control, and which were not caused by your actions or your intent.

The people around you will not understand what is happening to you, or they may be in denial of the reality of what the government (any government) and their minions are capable of, meaning the level of evil, the utter lack of love, compassion, honor and integrity in their hearts.

So, in most cases, the Target is abandoned and/or betrayed and left to stand alone against the onslaught.

As for the deprivation, the perps will attempt to steal, destroy, remove, expunge everything of a material nature, which you need to live. Your vehicles (and other property) may be sabotaged and vandalized. You may be driven to bankruptcy or financial destitution. You may lose your property, including your home.

You may be blacklisted from employment in your profession, or terminated from any job you hold. You may be refused professional services when you need to hire an attorney, or in some cases, the attorney will be working against your interests. You may be unable to rent a place to live, because the prospective landlords will refuse your application, either for reasons undisclosed, or because false/fraudulent accusations have been spread about you.

If your case has been made public, as in that of a whistleblower, you will no doubt become the Target of a smear campaign, which exacerbates the situation and makes it far more difficult to deal with.

 I realize this only scratches the surface, but knowing that there is a typical pattern, and that others have been targeted using the same methods, may at least give you some point of reference from which to proceed in standing against the evildoers.

I won't insult you, or try to minimize your situation, by saying, "You're not alone". I can't count the times that someone, even a well-meaning person, has said such a thing to me. What they don't understand is that, in fact, most of the time you are alone, regardless of the help/support you may receive from time to time, because such support is usually temporary and/or conditional.

I am sorry that I can't be of more help to you, except the information you have found to be of value on my website.

But I can offer a few suggestions for your consideration.

Document everything. Incidents, dates, names, so you have a record. When possible, get photographs as evidence.

When seeking help for a particular problem, first pray for guidance as to whom you might ask. The people closest to you may not be the best choice, especially since they are not likely to be objective about your situation. 

In my own case, aside from a few longterm, solid and loyal friends, I have found the most help from Christian organizations or the priests from churches I have attended. If nothing else, a sincere Christian minister will be able to understand your situation from a spiritual perspective, even if unable to offer material support.

When it becomes clear that certain persons will not be willing or able to help you, it is best not to use your time or energy trying to "make them understand". They won't, and you will only be drained and feel frustrated. Instead, bless them, walk away (if only temporarily) and search for other options.

Avoid discussing your situation with strangers, especially on the Internet. Anything you put in print can (and most likely will) be used against you, or twisted to misrepresent you, given the surveillance society in which we now live.

When you read articles on the issues of interest to you, learn as much as possible about the author and the source. There is a tremendous amount of misinformation, disinformation and propaganda, and many ignorant, aggressive people seeking public attention. They are addressing issues on which they have no real knowledge, much less expertise, usually parroting the material of others, both legitimate and not. Use discretion and again, pray for guidance to find and recognize truthful, factual sources of information.

Don't allow yourself to be driven to despair, no matter how bad the circumstances. Stand your ground, don't compromise your principles, no matter what other people may say or do in efforts to derail you.

Focus your thoughts on the blessings you do have, no matter how small they may seem, and give thanks to God, from whom all blessings flow.

Lastly, seek your help and deliverance from God, rather than expecting it to come from people.

The Lord shall guide thee continually...

Isaiah 58:11

May you trust His heart, follow His leading, and rest in His Hand.

I greatly appreciate your letter and I am praying for you and your family.

Former FBI Agent Geral Sosbee Presents: Ongoing FBI Atrocities

For the past few months I have been unable to have any contact with my best friend, Geral Sosbee.

The constant assaults with anti-personnel directed-energy weaponry have done such extensive cumulative damage that these demonic perps have destroyed his hearing. We can't speak on the phone, and due to my own circumstances, there is no other method of communication currently available.

In addition, I have been unable to get any updates from his site. I have tried to access New Civilization Network, where he normally posts updates, but the link from his website would not work. I called a friend and asked her to try to access the site, but she had no success either. It seems that 'someone' is interfering with the links on Geral's site.

Finally, today I was able to get this recent report on the site, by conducting a search.

Continued terror, torture, outrageous crimes and persecution against this FBI Whistleblower. The best of the best, the most brilliant, the most honorable, a great and uncompromising Defender of Liberty, Messenger of Truth.

Shame on you, all those who assault him, whether with words or weapons. May God's swift and terrible justice be visited upon you.

Geral Sosbee Presents

I have proven that the fbi engages in the following crimes regularly:

Torture by DEW, attempted murder by chemically induced kidney stone and strategically placed bacterial infection near brain, extreme psychological assaults and provocations as a method to arrest the Target (or to force final exits), repeatedly & for decades pump toxic gas into the residence of Targets, turn some cops into assassins and turn cops at every level into thugs who fraudulently threaten the Target with arrest, send infected operatives to spread communicable diseases to others (My own medical clearances are available online);
and evidence continues to mount that fbi threatens and achieves the following crimes against selected Targets: castration, blindness, deafness, etc., turn average citizens into thugs and potential killers at will & en queue .


For more data see my sworn Affidavit 2007 and 2014, my writ and my thousands of reports online.

Thus, one who studies my documentaries may reasonably conclude:

The police state USA is the biggest human rights offender in the world due to an aggressive fbi/cia led coup of USA and a simultaneous threat to control other countries.

All controlled media are accomplices to fbi/cia crimes and atrocities globally. Recently, even so-called 'indymedia' groups such as those at Indybay, Barcelona & Ireland trash my submissions.

The fbi is made up of torturers, serial killers, professional assassins, psychopaths and criminals who are paid to commit a wide range of felonies against fbi's Targets. All other fbi employees are cowards who dare not expose such atrocities by their fellow fbi associates.

Congress and SCOTUS are complicit in fbi atrocities , as are all federal magistrate judges; , the fbi's crime spree which I describe are unprecedented in human affairs.

No remedy is apparent and no Target may escape the fbi/cia/USPI, etc. mafia type macabre offenses. See my post at


My efforts will continue until the end


and I expect that no one, except my superb friend BARBARA HARTWELL,


and a few others will speak out on behalf of victims of very dirty and inhumane crimes by the USA's intelligence community.

The above represents a summary and is further detailed in my sites at SOSBEE v fbi, [link] and other sites.

I am a former fbi agent and Adjunct Professional Instructor of Law:

Thank you and...


May Providence give aid, comfort and blessings to all who suffer under the filthy actions and thoughts of fbi everywhere.

The Trouble with Leftists (2010)

NOTE:  This report was written in 2010. I thought this would be a good time to repost it, considering the current insanity prevailing in this nation. 
The left-wing agitators, the mobs of violently aggressive thugs, rioting in the streets, assaulting law-abiding citizens, setting fires, throwing bricks at the police, destroying private property and public property.

The ideology which prevails among these utterly lawless mobs is astounding in its unadulterated idiocy and outright stupidity: "Safe spaces" and "trigger warnings". 
What, exactly, is it that they feel the need to be "safe" from? What is it, exactly, that will "trigger" them?
Anyone whose words might "hurt their feelings", anyone who stands in defense of free speech, anyone who disagrees with them, anyone who tells it like it is, employing logic, reason and principle, without fear of the disapproval of the whining crybabies, throwing temper tantrums.

Chanting their silly slogans, in their profound ignorance, not having the slightest idea of what their misguided words actually mean. Toxic ideology parroted from the likes of Satanists, Marxists and terrorists, Saul Alinsky, Bill Ayers, the self-appointed "god", George Soros and all the rest of their ilk. 
Make no mistake: These lunatic mobs are funded and supported by the globalists, whose goal is to destroy this sovereign nation, tear down the borders, and enslave every one of us who defends Liberty and the God-given unalienable rights of the Individual.

Barbara Hartwell Percival

"The smallest minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities."
 --Ayn Rand
The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.
Ecclesiastes 10:2 
No doubt about it, leftists are trouble. Maybe that's because they're looking for trouble --and they  always find it.
Leftists make trouble where none previously existed --they lobby for trouble, picket for trouble, crusade for trouble, campaign for trouble. Wherever they go, trouble follows.
Leftists may call themselves by various names. The more flagrant among them may designate themselves as socialists or even communists; others may call themselves liberals or progressives. Some leftists may masquerade as conservatives, but their actions tell another story.
However they may describe themselves, there is one very simple reason why leftists are troublemakers: They do not respect --nor even recognize-- the rights, liberties, privacy, personal boundaries or sovereignty of the Individual.  
And that is where the trouble always begins.
Each and every Individual is born with unalienable rights. Why unalienable?  Because these rights are bestowed by the Creator, God Almighty, NOT by men nor by the societies or governments of men. What God has given, no man, nor collective of men, has the right to take away. 
Trouble is, leftists just don't get it.  Leftists hold the false and asinine belief that "rights" are negotiable, that they are to be determined and doled out by the discretionary power of the collective.
As deniers of Individual rights, leftists will intrude, invade, trespass, stalk and harass. They are everywhere, always in places where they are not wanted and where they have no right to be.
If you post a NO TRESPASSING sign on your private property, the leftist will pull up the stake and use it as a battering ram to break down your door. If you put up a privacy fence, the leftist will vault over it with impunity. If you build a reinforced concrete wall, the leftist will go out and rent a bulldozer, then send you the bill.
Leftists do not think for themselves (if they think at all); lacking intellectual and spiritual discernment, they look to others to form their opinions and make their decisions. But in the world of the leftists, it doesn't stop there, for they feel threatened by anyone who strays from the herd, who engages in independent, critical thought, who decides for himself, who exercises his God-given rights, who seizes his Individual liberty, who refuses to defer to the collective.
When a leftist has a problem, rather than solving it on his own, or perhaps  seeking expert advice from a reliable source, he will use the scattershot approach, consulting every Tom, Dick and Harry who comes down the pike. He will make numerous phone calls, hammer out e-mails, go from house to house, taking surveys. Let's vote on it!, the leftist will proclaim. For the leftist, the majority rules, no matter how idiotic the consensus may be.
If you have a problem, don't ever confide in a leftist. He will not keep your confidence, but will drag everybody and his brother into your private business, soliciting opinions without your knowledge or consent. Then, you will be subjected to a long-winded harangue, as the leftist spouts off the unwanted  advice of this so-and-so, and that so-and-so...the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker.  According to the leftist, YOUR business is everybody's business.
Leftists are nitpickers who will waste their time and energy (and yours, if you let them) in endless discussions of minutiae, rather than getting straight to the point.  A leftist can't see the forest for the trees.
A leftist will take an insupportable position which violates the rights and personal boundaries of the Individual, but when confronted with his offenses,  he will not acknowledge his wrongdoing, even when proved wrong. Like a caged mouse on a wheel, the leftist will just keep going round and round, just keep on defending the indefensible.
Leftists are social animals who will eagerly join all sorts of groups, associations, societies, coalitions and committees. Since they don't trust their own perceptions, and since discernment and discretion are absent from their thought processes, leftists everywhere can be found parroting and advocating the consensus of the majority.  
Leftists are the ultimate team players. According to the skewed philosophy of leftists, everyone must fall into line, march in lockstep and, come hell or high water, agree with the prevailing trends of the collective, on every issue.
With leftists, there is no possibility of "agreeing to disagree". Rather than leaving others in peace and privacy to live as they see fit, leftists will  always  attempt to force their views, opinions, ideology and policies on others.  
For leftists, compromise is the order of the day. Those who refuse to compromise their principles for the "common good" of the collective are  deemed stubborn, difficult, recalcitrant, uncooperative --or, the favorite  insult hurled by leftists, "selfish".
Those who refuse to conform, to comply with the rules and regulations of the  collective, are viewed as a threat and treated as pariahs.
"You always have to have things your way!", or, "You always have to win!", the leftist will exclaim. This, when the issue at hand involves ONLY the private  business of an Individual, in which the leftist and his comrades have no right to interfere.
Many leftists, in their delusional mindset, consider themselves do-gooders, altruists, humanitarians. They vociferously tout the virtues of 'doing for others', 'social welfare', compassion, tolerance and charity.  But their  'charity' comes with a hefty price tag attached  --they will always interfere in the affairs of others, smugly claiming they know what is best, for the "good of all."
When an Individual draws his line in the sand, the leftist feels compelled to cross it. Leftists, by their very nature, are compulsive aggressors.  They are gate-crashers, snoops, meddlers.  Leftists are micro-managers of other people's business --with a vengeance!
Leftists just won't leave others alone --that's because leftists are the worst sort of busybodies.  Hovering over you, breathing down your neck, they're continually handing out unsolicited advice, "checking in", tracking your every move, invading your privacy. 
Leftists are ruled not by reason, principle, or spiritual integrity; rather, they are wishy-washy  weather vanes, swayed by every wind of doctrine.  And in fact, contrary to their boasts of "tolerance", leftists are the least tolerant people imaginable, as they simply will not tolerate anyone who tells them, in no uncertain terms, to mind their own business and leave others to tend to theirs!
Leftists are mobsters. Advocating mob rule, they operate in groups, packs and herds. Lacking respect for the rights of the Individual, rather than acting on moral absolutes, leftists will use deception, manipulation, social engineering to pursue their agenda.
The agenda? Make no mistake: It's all about control.
Leftists are cowards, and like all cowards, they seek safety and security in numbers. Leftists want to grab your guns, to leave you defenseless, to force you into compliance with the edicts of the collective.  After all, they whine, we know what is best for you, it's for your own good.
But at the end of the day, the do-gooder mask of tolerance, altruism and charity falls away, leaving only the sinister face of evil. Leftists will ultimately resort to the use of deadly force against anyone and everyone who stands up for the liberties, rights, privacy and personal boundaries of the Individual. 
Failing all else, they will send men with guns to neutralize dissenters. Leftism is a slippery slope which ALWAYS ends in communist tyranny, a fact well-proven by history. 
Such is the trouble with leftists.

As happens from time to time, I find it necessary to make a public statement to outline my policies and rules of engagement.


I have published my reports on the Internet since 1995. At first, they were published on various websites and in 2000 I put my own website online. From 2000 until 2004 I had a series of webmasters, because I had no knowledge or training in web design. That did not work out at all well for me, because having a webmaster meant that one way or another, I was "at the mercy" of other people.

One of the webmasters was targeted for harassment and threats. He suffered a home invasion. While he was out, perps broke in and his apartment was trashed, his electronic equipment destroyed, thrown into the bathtub. All of the hardcopy files/documents I had given him were stolen, and the finishing touch was that the perps had made numerous photocopies of a brochure he had designed, titled Barbara Hartwell: CIA Black Ops Survivor (to be distributed at my speaking engagements, and to advertise my website) and scattered them all around his apartment, and on top of the destroyed equipment.

This was a person I had known for many years, whom I trusted. I could not blame him for being targeted; this is what happened to many people who tried to help me in connection with my work. I hate to think what it cost him. As for the damages to me, I lost documents that could never be replaced. But the message could not have been more clear: Woe to anyone who gets involved with Barbara Hartwell's work in exposing government corruption.

I fared no better with other webmasters, one of whom overstepped his bounds by refusing to publish certain material, simply because he did not "approve" of the reports. I made it clear that he had no say in what I published, and that he was immediately dismissed from his job as webmaster.

Then, there was the "Christian minister" who, I later found out, had been betraying my confidence and discussing my personal business, behind my back, with certain FBI agents, and had given my PRIVATE phone number to an aggressive busybody who tried to force her brand of "Christian" beliefs on me, via her "ministry". (I was ordained as a minister in 1979, and had no need of anything she was trying to foist on me.)

When there was what I believed to be a credible threat to my life, I left my home to go to a safe place. But the "Christian minister" blabbed all my business to the FBI agents. Thank God I didn't tell him where I was going. And that was the end of that association.

(The names of these "Christians"  may  be found in my reports, and in the HALL OF SHAME on this website.)

In August, 2004 I took my website offline. The reason for this was that I did not own the domain name. It had been "donated" by a person from the UK, who claimed to be a "supporter". I made the mistake of trusting him, though he did not provide me with his name, but only a screen name. (Foolish of me, I know, but never again...)

As it happened, in late 2003, "somebody" from among my adversaries in the government decided to perpetrate a hoax in one of their many attempts to discredit me. They hacked in to the site, 'allwhois', where there was supposedly a record of every domain name registered. The liar/hoaxer entered the following information for the 'owner' of Barbara Hartwell dot com:

1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington D.C.

Which, as everyone knows, is the White House.

Now, I was being harassed by hundreds of people I did not know (and some whom I did know), sending e-mails demanding to know "the truth", and if I had any "comment" to make about who really sponsored my website. Was it the White House? Was it George W. Bush? CIA? (the most common accusation) FBI? NSA?

None of the above, but, as is my policy, I did not bother to respond to these unsolicited e-mails.

A swarm of angry, aggressive hornets was now descending on me, not for anything I had actually done, but because they apparently were easily hoodwinked by the government's disinformation/black propaganda campaign against Barbara Hartwell.

Next item: When I contacted the "supporter" from the UK to explain what had happened, he told me he would look into it and try to fix the problem. But the next thing I knew, the White House had been expunged from the record, and replaced with this:

9/11 Nuke Iraq Street

I had been very vocal in my opposition to the government's "wars" (undeclared by Congress), but somebody was obviously trying to make it look as if I were a supporter of the U.S. government's invasions of other countries.

Then, there were the hordes of government minions and stooges who published the fraudulent information, making all sorts of vile accusations. But of course, that was the plan all along. Exploit the ignorance and fear of those seeking an outlet for their pent up anger and misplaced aggression. Provide them with a scapegoat, then sit back and watch the fireworks.

I did not own the domain name. I had no control over the government perps hacking into the 'allwhois' site. There was nothing I could do, so in disgust I took the website offline. From August 2004 until September 2006 I had no website.

I published reports (on other websites) documenting what had happened, exposing the names of those who were publishing the libelous falsehoods and fraudulent information and refuting their claims. Those reports are now archived on this site, for those interested.

I have not used a public e-mail address since I removed Barbara Hartwell dot com in 2004. For a short time I had a yahoo address, only so I could post my reports elsewhere. Unfortunately, there was no way to keep this address private, as it was "required" for posting. But the harassment and threats, the cyber-stalking from the government stooges continued. I finally had to expunge the address; it was the only way to stop the assaults by these loathsome characters.

In September, 2006, I decided to use a 'blog' site, since I could not afford to hire a webmaster, nor to pay for another domain name or web space for a 'real' website. The most important issue for me was to be autonomous, and not dependent in any way on others, such as a webmaster, to publish my work. By this time, I had also decided not to publish on other sites, as I had in the past, with a few exceptions, those being trusted colleagues who valued my work and respected my privacy, my personal boundaries and my fundamental rights.

In 2010, I transferred much of the material from my old website on to my current site, Barbara Hartwell Vs. CIA.  I don't like the format, and I certainly don't like the fact that the Google Gestapo owns the 'blogspot' sites, but it was all I could manage without resources or hired help, so here I am.

For those who don't understand why I was not able to afford to maintain a website, all I can say is that they have no idea what it is like to be the Target of a neutralization campaign, and the abject poverty to which I have been  driven. The constant interference and invasions into every area of my life made it difficult to work at all....but then, that was the objective.


From the time my first website went online (2000) until 2014, I solicited donations from the general public to support my work.  Most of the journalists and government whistleblowers I've known (or known of) do the same. Unless you are independently wealthy, or have some other reliable source of material support, it is difficult to sustain life, much less your professional work.

But soliciting donations brought its own set of problems. I've always made it crystal clear in notices on my website my policy on donations:

All donations given in the spirit of 'Christian charity' or 'love gifts', free and clear, no questions asked, no strings attached, are gratefully accepted. All donations are to be used at the sole discretion of Barbara Hartwell.

And yet, some of the donors could not seem to accept or respect this policy. Some mistakenly believed that any material support they provided "bought" them some of my time, my allegiance, or even that it gave them carte blanche to exploit my name, have their questions (some of which were of an intrusive personal nature) answered, or meddle in my personal or professional business. 

Some tried to push their unsolicited advice on me, and even responded with anger when I explained that I had not asked for their advice, and did not want or need it. Some tried to tell me how I "should be" spending the donations they sent. This, despite the fact that in my notices I stated that "all donations are to be used at the sole discretion of Barbara Hartwell."

I have also received requests by post from people who say they want to make donations by PayPal (or other electronic means). I have been asked to give my e-mail address, to set up communications.

I don't use Paypal or other electronic means to receive funds. I don't give out my e-mail address. E-mail has never been reliable for me, which is why I rarely use it. Protecting my privacy and security is my main concern.

As stated, I no longer solicit donations. It has been more trouble than it is worth. For those who want to send donations, they are free to do so, as long as they understand the policy. I accept donations only by postal mail, at the address given at the top of this website.

I have posted a number of notices, prominently displayed, which I ask new visitors to read first. The title is: NOTICES & Vital Info: New Readers Please Begin Here.

The purpose of this website is to publish an archive of my work. It is not a "news" site, nor do I seek interaction with the readers. I do not engage in any form of "social networking".

For those who find my work of value, who share the principles I uphold, such as defending Liberty and unalienable rights, and want to make donations for this reason, they will always be greatly appreciated. 

But please, those who have expectations of some kind of quid pro quo arrangement, or who are not willing to accept the policies stated here, you might be better off using your money to support another cause.

Thank you for your consideration.
