Saturday, May 27, 2017



Since I began publishing my reports on the Internet (1995) I have received thousands of letters (by e-mail and post) from people seeking assistance, asking for guidance, those who had been targeted for government harassment, persecution, counterintelligence operations.

Some sent legal files, asking me to investigate their cases, some sought consultations, quite a few of whom were under the mistaken belief that I am an attorney.

(My professional training is in investigations, intelligence analysis, profiling, psychoanalysis/counseling and Christian ministry, to set the record straight.)

There are thankfully, quite a large number of people who have told me that reading my reports helped them to understand what was happening to them, and why. Some said they felt relieved in the knowledge that they were not the only ones in such a situation: that there was a pattern operating in their lives which had been engineered by covert government operatives, and that they were not at fault for the circumstances in which they found themselves.

But the most serious problem they faced was, what could they actually do about it; how to deal with it, and ultimately, how to survive it.

Those among my readers who were former intelligence professionals (FBI, CIA, DIA, etc.), ex-military (including DOD, SOG, Special Forces, Army Rangers, etc.) were particularly interested in the psy ops reports. Some of them had been involved in MK Ultra operations, and had been trained, groomed and programmed, either from early childhood (as I was), or after they joined the services.

Most of them did not remember much (if anything) about the programming, or even about some of the operations in which they were utilized, they told me, not until their memories began to be “triggered” (I hesitate to use that word, but it is the most accurate), by my reports. They recognized certain events and circumstances I had described, and knew, if only subconsciously, that something had happened to them, and that it was deeply distressing.

(For example, Operation Gladio and Operation Phoenix are two joint intelligence/military programs which used government-issue assassins, some of whom were not “officially” military personnel and quite a number of whom were utilized under MK Ultra and related sub-projects. Some were “official” military, but were exploited in black operations outside the normal parameters.)

Because of my own circumstances of extreme hardship, since breaking free of CIA operations (1994), I was unable to do as much as I might have to help these people, though I wanted to. I investigated and worked selected cases, but I lacked the resources, especially to pay the related expenses. I did not charge anyone for these professional services, though those who were able made donations to support my work. Most often, they were as financially deprived as I, as a result of the targeting.

(Using every tactic available to them the perps of these campaigns against a Target will orchestrate a situation which leaves the targeted person stripped of as many resources as possible. Lacking such, he is hard pressed even to survive, much less to take action in his own defense and to pursue justice against those hell bent on destroying him.)

In this report I offer some ideas based on my own personal/professional experience and investigations, which I hope will be useful to others, especially those targeted for psy war of one kind or another. Forewarned is forearmed.

DISCLAIMER: The material presented here is not legal advice. The purpose is to offer information which may help the reader to make informed decisions and to better understand and cope with circumstances of having been targeted for unethical/illegal aggression, be it by government entities or their agents, operatives, minions, hirelings.


The first questions I would ask, in conducting an interview with a person so targeted, are:

What is your background, personally and professionally?

Have you, or anyone in your family, been involved (officially or otherwise) in government service/operations? If so, where, when, and what sort?

If you were not directly involved/employed in government operations, which members of your family were? Siblings, parent(s), spouse, or other relations/in-laws?

If employed by any government entity, under what circumstances did you leave your position? Were you terminated, asked to resign/retire, resign under coercion, or did you quit of your own volition, and for what reasons?

Were there any legal actions taken, by you, or by your employer?

Have you gone public as a whistleblower under your own auspices and/or by disclosing information to any media outlets?

There are cases where the family members of intelligence operatives were issued a security clearance, without their knowledge or consent, even when they had no direct involvement in operations. If they happened to witness anything of a sensitive nature, or inadvertently viewed classified documents, they were “covered”.

But it is safe to say that if anyone in your family was directly involved, then you are deemed to be “involved”, whether you want to be, or not. This is emblematic of the culture of control, secrecy and manipulation which is pervasive in the intelligence community. More than being a “culture”, it functions as a cult.


The most serious cases of targeting tend to occur when the Target has been directly involved in government service, most especially covert operations, espionage (or counter-espionage), and black operations.

It is a known fact (or should be) that government entities (especially intelligence services) do not abide by the law and do not obey the Constitution. From my experience, they operate with hubris, as if they are above the law, and it is a near impossibility to hold them accountable under the law. They always have a lot to hide, and a lot to lose if their unlawful activities are discovered, and worst of all, made public by credible sources.

A high-profile Target is a person who has gone public as a whistleblower, exposing government corruption, and whose knowledge comes from direct personal/professional experience and/or involvement (knowingly or unknowingly) and/or as a witness and/or victim of the operations.

Anyone ever involved, in any way, with government entities, especially military/intelligence services, will have been the subject of extensive data collection and profiling. The quantity of which is determined by such factors as family history (especially other family members in government service), level of clearance (officially assigned or otherwise), IQ and personality type, and projected outcomes (probabilities) as to the likelihood of the individual posing a threat by “rocking the boat”, stepping outside the designated parameters, or placing conscience over “obedience” and “conformity”.

It has been my observation that people of conscience, decent and honorable people, are those who remove themselves from government service, or are removed (usually forced out under irregular circumstances), because of these very qualities. A genuine whistleblower fights corruption, rather than going along to get along. He places principle over ambition, ego-gratification and material gain. He defends Liberty and God-given unalienable rights of the individual over the totalitarian systems of collectivism.

And as has been demonstrated throughout history, he or she will pay a (usually terrible) price.


I have covered this formula in many of my previous reports, but it can't be repeated too many times. The purpose of the neutralization campaign is to destroy the Target's life.

Since the government entity is always guilty of some form of wrongdoing (and in some cases felony crimes and capital crimes), the Target who has been a witness and/or victim of that entity's abuses of authority and power will be considered a threat, not because of what he knows, or how much he knows, but because of WHO HE IS. Meaning what, according to his fundamental character, he is likely to DO ABOUT what he knows, has witnessed and/or been victimized by.

The same qualities (intellect, talents, courage) which make for excellence in an intelligence professional can also be put to use to fight back against corruption in the intelligence community.


If you have a conscience, you will become a conscientious objector to corruption and tyranny. You will be a non-compromiser, surrounded by compromisers. You will hold to moral absolutes, rather than practice moral relativism. You will defend virtue and denounce evil, wherever you may find one or the other.

In any society, throughout history, it has only been a small percentage of the populace (in the American Revolution, for example, roughly 3%) who will stand up against the tyrants, the evildoers, the liars, the manipulators, the criminals in government.

You will be willing to stand up for the truth, and on principle, even if you have to stand alone. You will scrupulously eschew 'agenda politics'; you will not bow to consensus; pragmatism will play no part in your decisions. Rather, you will be dedicated to a code of honor which respects the individual liberties, personal boundaries, privacy and fundamental rights of others.

These united States once held great promise: “the consent of the governed”; “liberty and justice for all”; “a government of the people, by the people and for the people”. “The people” are the individuals of the several States, and the purpose of this Constitutional Republic is to secure the rights and liberties of individuals against tyranny by the government.

Tragically, these founding principles are long gone, at least in practice. The government has become a raging beast, seeking whom it may devour. The overwhelming majority of its elected and appointed officials are dreadfully corrupt. And there is no end in sight to its lawlessness, in every branch, executive, legislative and judicial.

So, what can one person of conscience do?

He can stand up against the corruption. He can expose the corruption by revealing the facts he has discovered by his own experience, by his own investigations. He can collect and develop evidence to substantiate the facts. He can name the names of those who are engaging in the civil and criminal offenses. He can pursue justice through any and all lawful and ethical means available to him. He can hold the perpetrators accountable for their offenses.

He can do all these things, just as one person of moral courage. Even if no one will support him in his efforts. Even if the odds are stacked against him. Even if he is treated as a pariah, marginalized, mocked and scorned by mobs of ignorant persons, the masses of asses who care nothing for the principles he defends. Standing up against evil is always a free-will personal choice. For the genuine whistleblower it is more than a choice, it is a duty, a moral imperative.

The whistleblower is a defender of unalienable rights and liberties, never an aggressor. The person of conscience does not engage in acts of aggression. He knows that aggression of any kind is always wrongful, that it is the most basic source of the evil that plagues this nation, as well as the entire world.


When it comes to corrupt totalitarian systems of government, there is no one more hated than the whistleblower. It should be understood that the hatred is based on fear. Tyrants, despite their hubris, know that even one person, if focused, dedicated and uncompromising, armed with factual information, backed by evidence, can be a force to be reckoned with. They also know that one person can be the catalyst who can raise awareness in others, who may then decide to add their support to the cause taken on by the whistleblower.

In order to gather solid and lasting support for the cause, it must be one which is based on timeless, universal moral absolutes, not subject to modification, not bound by any form of government regulations:

God-given (natural), unalienable rights, protected and guaranteed under the Constitution, for each and every individual, regardless of gender, race, ethnic origin, creed, religion (or lack thereof).

Equal rights for one and all, not “special rights” for selected groups.

Equal justice for one and all, not “social justice”, which is based on the attempts of special interest groups to get what they want, at the expense of all others, and by its very nature is bound to divide a nation into camps of totally incompatible supremacist and “victim” ideologies.

The Rule of Law, under the Constitution, a nation of laws, rather than a nation ruled by the changing whims and shifting ideologies of men.

A sovereign nation, with no interference by foreign entities, or collectivist totalitarian organizations such as the United Nations. Without sovereignty there can be no liberty.

The understanding that collectivism, in any form, and rule by consensus of the majority, always ends in tyranny. Communism, socialism, fascism (or any other “isms”), and the mistaken notion by many who would otherwise defend liberty and unalienable rights, that “democracy” is a virtuous form of government, when it is nothing more than mob rule. This nation was founded as a Constitutional Republic, not a democracy!

Violent mobs of left-wing agitators have become a serious threat to life, liberty and property in this country. They take to the streets, assaulting law-abiding citizens, throwing projectiles, setting fires. They carry banners which claim they are against fascism, but their behavior tells the true story of their utterly lawless mindset. They brandish communist flags, but in their abject cowardice, hide their faces with black masks, so they cannot be identified (or so they think) when they commit their violent crimes against persons, when they destroy private or public property.

They plan riots (funded by globalist totalitarians with money to burn) to disrupt lawful assemblies of persons who defend the right of free speech, in attempts to stop any speaker with whom they disagree, and to stop an audience from hearing what that speaker has to say.

Worse, the left-wing agitators have formed an unholy alliance with the Islamic State, the Muslim Brotherhood, whose goal is to dominate the entire world, under Sharia law.

Islam is in fact a totalitarian political system, whose “religion” requires jihad to subjugate entire populations. Under Sharia, women are held as property (including in polygamy), are subjected to brutal genital mutilation, rape, beatings, “honor killings”, and a total dearth of individual rights.

Under Sharia, Christians and Jews are required to pay a “tax” if they refuse to convert to Islam, or else they will be murdered. As for homosexuals, they can be killed with impunity, they are simply deemed to have no right to life.

Muslim rape gangs in Europe are on a rampage, abducting women and children in huge numbers. This too, is permitted under Sharia law. And what is absolutely astounding is that the authorities have done nothing to stop them. No, they would rather have “tolerance” for these evildoers. They fear being accused of “Islamophobia”, while they allow these criminals to run roughshod over innocent, law-abiding people.

Islamic jihadis commit terrorist acts, by suicide bombers, murdering men, women and children, all for their “god”, Allah. The greatest honor they can receive, under Sharia, is dying for Allah. They are told they will go to paradise, with access to scores of virgins, for their self-gratifiying pleasure. How twisted, what an abomination, is that!

This is insanity, a mass psychosis. And these atrocities are beyond despicable. Why do so few people recognize this for the evil it is?

In this country, Sharia law is in flagrant violation of the Constitution. It is not “protected” as a “religion” under the First Amendment, though many ignorant people believe this to be the case.

A “Women's March” on Washington, D.C., led by “progressives”, had women with “pussy hats”, claiming they are feminists. Joined by women in hijabs marching in the streets with their comrades on the hard left, demanding “justice”. Justice for whom?

Do these women (the pussy-hat feminists) have a clue what they are actually supporting? By this alliance, they are supporting the worst sort of misogyny.

And the Islamist jihadis will kill them, too, after they have exploited them for their own nefarious ends.

This has become a nation of hypocrites, cowards and quislings, a nation inculcated into defending oppression, tyranny and evil, all in the name of “tolerance”.

Any reasonable person, any decent, honorable person, any self-respecting person, any defender of liberty and unalienable rights, of fundamental human rights (male or female) will have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for such evil, perpetrated against themselves, their families, their fellow citizens.

And the bastards can only get away with this if nobody stands up to stop them.

It is We the People who must stand up and stop them.

Do you support torture, violence, terrorism on American soil?

Do you support the indoctrination of our children and grandchildren, turning them into delusional zombies, in the false belief that “tolerance” of evil will be their saving grace?

Then may we forget you were our countrymen.

THE SHACK: Counterfeit Christianity

NOTE: I wrote this book review of THE SHACK in 2012. I recently learned that a film has been made from the book. I have no interest in seeing the film, and would not want to support it by paying an admission fee.

But I am still very surprised (and saddened) at how many people, including Christians I know personally, are flocking to see the film.

Here is the opinion of just one Christian minister, who prays for discernment in the Body of Christ, and as always, the readers may make of it what they will...

Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first.

2 Thessalonians 2:3

THE SHACK, written by William Paul Young (published 2007) is described as "Christian fiction".

The book rose to #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and has garnered a cult-like following among Christians. There are "SHACK" study groups; SHACK online discussion groups; SHACK "projects", and strangest of all, even SHACK 'ministries'. Christians are buying multiple copies of the book and distributing it to their friends, family and church congregations.

It has received countless glowing reviews and the author, William P. Young, has been interviewed on many of the mainstream TV and radio talk shows, including Christian programming.

Consider this quote, displayed on the front cover of THE SHACK:

"This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress did for his. It's that good!"

--Eugene Peterson

From all the hubbub surrounding THE SHACK, you'd almost think some ancient hidden scriptures had been unearthed!

I first heard of THE SHACK in 2009, when some people I knew had chosen it for their Christian book discussion group. I was invited to participate but declined the offer. I hadn't read THE SHACK, but I did take a brief look at the front cover and perused the summary on the back. Immediately, I was struck with a sense of sinister foreboding. I did not get a good feeling about THE SHACK.

One day, about a year later, I was at the used book store. Most of the fiction books I read come either from the library or else I can trade in my old books for ones I haven't read. I went to the Christian section, looking for something else, and there it was, THE SHACK. I wouldn't have paid money for it, but decided that I would get it as an exchange, just to find out what all the fuss was about.

THE SHACK sat on my bookshelf for months, gathering dust. I didn't even open the cover in all that time, I had such a creepy feeling about it. When I finally decided to read it, I understood why: This book could be an insidious poison to the Christian believer, at least for those who have not developed a true spiritual discernment.

But I also could understand, from a more objective psychological point of view, how so many people, even genuine Christians, might be deceived by the book's false theology. The Shack appeals first and foremost to the reader's emotions and offers what appears to be a powerful and effective antidote to those who are desperate to fathom the depths of their pain and suffering. But the "solution" presented in THE SHACK is a contrived and counterfeit secular humanist, new age "spirituality" which bears no relation whatsoever to the actual Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Unlike so many Christian readers, who gushed praises that the book "changed their lives", or that they "finally understood the truth", I found THE SHACK to be deeply troubling, in more ways than one. But I'm not sorry I read the book, if only because having done so, I felt compelled to issue a warning to my fellow Christians.

This book review is not comprehensive, in the sense that I can only cover so much ground in pointing out the false theology. So I'll limit the focus to what I found to be the most salient errors.

Having read THE SHACK, I decided to do some research on the author. After watching some interviews of William P. Young, I later learned that the book was autobiographical in nature, not in the sense of the actual events depicted as fiction, but in terms of Young's personal feelings about experiences in his own life. Such as: that he was sexually abused as a child; and that after having an adulterous affair with his wife's best friend (also a member of their church) he and his wife were forced to leave the church in disgrace.

Young says that "the shack" is a "metaphor" for a place that is deep inside of him. And the story he tells shows how he was "transformed" by the revelations of "God". But sadly, Young's revelations are highly subjective in nature, and clearly limited by the level of his own perceptions and understanding of God.

In brief, the storyline goes like this: The protagonist is a man named Mackenzie Allen Phillips. During a family vacation, his young daughter is abducted and subsequently raped and murdered by a serial killer. Thus begins the "Great Sadness". Mackenzie, otherwise known as Mack, is emotionally devastated and at a loss to understand how to deal with or make sense of this tragedy, especially from a spiritual or "Christian" perspective. His faith is shattered, with nowhere to turn for answers.

The body of his daughter, Missy, is not found, but the police finally do track down a location where the murderer took Missy, an abandoned shack deep in the woods, where they find the girl's bloody clothing.

Time goes by, the Great Sadness seems only to get worse, but one day, a few years later, Mack finds a note in his mailbox. The note, claiming to be from God, is signed "Papa", and asks Mack to meet him at "the shack" for one weekend. Mack wonders if the note was sent by the killer, and can't believe it could really be from God, but despite his suspicion, decides to accept the invitation.

Upon arriving at the shack, to his great surprise, Mack is greeted by three characters: A "large beaming African-American woman" who introduces herself as "Papa" (otherwise known as "Elouisa"); a middle eastern man with a large nose who is "Jesus"; and a slender Asian woman named Sarayu.

It soon becomes clear that these characters represent the "trinity": "father", "son" and "holy spirit" (I use no capital letters, for what will become obvious reasons). The rest of the book tells the story of Mack's interactions with his new friends, mostly through his conversations with them, in which they dispense their spiritual wisdom for Mack's edification and enlightenment, and which results in Mack's eventual "transformation".

The conversations among the characters are reminiscent of a new age, secular humanist group therapy session. The theology is similar to that promoted in A Course in Miracles, claimed to have been "channeled" by Helen Shucman, in which "Jesus" is said to be speaking. Other new age manifestos also come to mind, such as Neale Donald Walsch's Conversations with God.

Among the most offensive false theology found in The Shack is Young's "trinity", grossly misidentified, misrepresented and worst of all, quoted AS IF what they are saying to Mack is the "gospel truth".

To put words in the mouth of God, Jesus Christ or the Holy Spirit is the ultimate blasphemy. Because although the story is fiction, Young is identifying these characters AS IF they comprise the "real" Trinity. It's not as if Young is simply promoting his own beliefs or ideas by having the protagonist, Mack, talk about his personal perceptions of them. Rather, he has concocted specific quotes which are not only false, but which contradict the actual sayings of Jesus Christ and which deny and desecrate the most basic tenets of Christianity itself.

So, here's a guy who claims to be a Christian, who has the audacity to "speak" for God the Father, Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Holy Spirit, through a fictional account purporting to spread a message of "truth".

Just as an example of how wrongful this is, imagine this: You are a real person who during your life wrote a number of articles and letters in areas of your expertise (what ever that may have been); you had a number of conversations with your friends, family and colleagues about your beliefs, your opinions, your view of the world. You spent your life in service to your ideals and principles, and it was important to you, as a person of integrity, that you made your position clear to others, through your communications and non-fiction written works.

Then you pass away. After your death, someone decides that he is going to write a biographical fiction novel about you, using your real name. But instead of using actual quotes from you (from your articles, letters or conversations) he decides he has the right to fabricate things you never said, putting them in quotation marks, along with your name. After all, he thinks, it is "only fiction". In his novel, the author misrepresents you, everything you worked for, everything you stood for. Your life is memorialized in a completely false light. Would you be outraged? Damn right you would!

Imagine doing something so outrageous, so flagrantly unjust, to a human being. To falsely represent him, to put words in his mouth which he never spoke. Now, imagine doing the same thing to God Almighty! And whether William Paul Young knows it or not, Jesus LIVES. And I feel sorry for Mr. Young to think what the consequences for his blasphemy will be: bearing false witness against God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

In THE SHACK, "God" is represented in the flesh, as a human being. That Young chose a "large African-American woman" makes it no more or less blasphemous than if he had chosen a more conventional image: an old man with a long white beard. Because the irrefutable fact is, God is spirit, NOT a human being.

True, many Christians will anthropomorphize God in their mental imagery, and to a point, maybe it can't be helped. From the perspective of male-supremacist fundamentalists, God is seen as male, though in truth, God, the Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth, cannot be limited to a "gender"; even most of the fundamentalists, when pressed, will admit to this.

God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

John 4:24

But worst of all, by personifying God as a human being, a "created being", the absolute majesty and glory of God are immeasurably diminished. What Spirit-filled Christian could fall to his knees in awe before such a "deity"?

Young's personification of "Jesus" is similarly flawed. Reading some of the lines spoken by him, I found myself wondering how Young could possibly come up with such a twisted version of the message of Christ's gospel clearly given in the New Testament. Jesus is presented not as Son of God, but as some kind of goofy new age hippie.

And lastly, we have "Sarayu", the so-called "holy spirit". Again, putting the Holy Spirit into a flesh body totally misrepresents God's Truth. Can anyone imagine, for example, Isaiah or Jeremiah being "inspired" to prophecy by such a a creature? The very thought is ludicrous.

Now, let's take a look at some of the conversations of this "trinity" with Mack.

"Papa" to Mack:

"Mackenzie, we have no concept of final authority among us, only unity. We are in a circle of relationship, not a chain of command or "great chain of being" as your ancestors termed it. What you’re seeing here is relationship without any overlay of power. We don't need power over the other because we are always looking out for the best. Hierarchy would make no sense among us."

The scriptures clearly state that Jesus was "sent" by the Father.

Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.

John 6:57

So, if there is no hierarchy, how could God the Father have "sent" Jesus, if there is only a "circle of relationship"? Why wouldn't Jesus have just decided to make the journey on his own?

"Jesus" to Mack:

"That’s the beauty you see in my relationship with Abba [Father] and Sarayu. We are indeed submitted to one another and have always been so and will always be. Papa is as much submitted to me as I to him, or Sarayu to me, or Papa to her. Submission is not about authority and it is not obedience; it is all about relationships of love and respect. In fact, we are submitted to you in the same way"

Mack: "So then we've been seduced with this preoccupation with authority?"

Lord have mercy! Is he serious? To say that God "submits" to a human being? Who does Young think God is? To say God has NO AUTHORITY over His people? That submitting to God is not obedience?

If God Almighty does not have authority, then who does? Throughout this conversation, Young promotes the idea that there is really no difference between God and human beings. No, we should all just "submit" to each other, and everything will be fine and dandy. Anything goes...

Papa to Mack:

"We carefully respect your choices, so we work within your systems even while we seek to free you from them"

Again, the idea that God would "work within" the systems of the world of men. What about the fact that "God is no respecter of persons"? How could anyone with even the slightest bit of spiritual discernment ever believe something so stupid?

Papa to Mack:

"I don't need to punish people for sin. Sin is its own punishment, devouring you from the inside. It's not my purpose to punish it; it's my joy to cure it."

The Lord tests the righteous and the wicked, and the one who loves violence His soul hates.

Psalm 11:5

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!'

Matthew 7:21-23

Young's "Jesus" says he does not want people to become Christians. What then, does he want them to do? To become new age pagans, worshipers of created things?

"Papa" and Mack, discussing forgiving the man who murdered Mack's daughter:

"Mack, for you to forgive this man is for you to release him to me and allow me to redeem him."

So now, God cannot "redeem" the murderer without Mack first forgiving him? God needs Mack's permission to "allow" him to redeem a sinner or bestow His grace? This takes the power from God and puts it into Mack's hands. But who is Mack to usurp the power of God? Again, God is diminished in his majesty and power, as if He were dependent on the will of a mere man to forgive, redeem or administer justice. But in Young's worldview, "justice" doesn't even enter into the picture.

The tale woven by Young, filled with sentimentality and syrupy-sweet emotional projection, presents a "feel good" democratic God, who does not punish sin; who needs the permission and cooperation of human beings to redeem; who cares nothing for righteousness; who does not administer justice—and is powerless to rule His kingdom without human assistance, via the "circle of relationship".

Does God, through His sovereign grace, offer salvation to Christian believers, covered by the blood of Christ? Or does a flesh creature "god", who "submits" to created beings, offer "transformation"?

As for THE SHACK, it is the last place on earth (or in any other realms) where any true believer in Jesus Christ and His gospel would ever want to go.

Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.

1 Thessalonians 5:19-22

Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what they had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 20:11-15

...that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ

Ephesians 4:14-15

...but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin. 

Mark 3:29

They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. 

Romans 1:25

At that time many will turn away from the faith and will betray and hate each other, and many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. . . . For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect– if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time.

Former FBI Agent Geral Sosbee for the Defense: Howard & Maureen Nemaizer's Abusive Treatment of Destitute, Disabled Senior Citizen

Today, while checking links on this site I discovered that one of my reports had been deleted from the archives. Since I did not delete it myself, I must reasonably conclude that it was deleted by Google. This is unwarranted censorship, so I will continue to repost, if it is deleted again.

This is not the first time this has happened. Google has deleted other reports in which I exposed perpetrators of defamation, criminal harassment, invasions of privacy in my own defense.

This is in reference to Howard and Maureen Nemaizer's abusive treatment of a destitute, disabled senior citizen, Barbara Hartwell.

This letter from Geral Sosbee was written in response to a defamatory article by Howard Nemaizer which was filled with libelous falsehoods and monstrous invasions of privacy against Barbara Hartwell and members of my family, who have since been further harassed by Maureen Nemaizer.

The outrageous defamation by the Nemaizers has continued, and has also been exploited by several criminal accomplices.

The damages to Barbara Hartwell are extreme, and continue to mount as Howard Nemaizer refuses to remove the defamatory material, as per my demands.

Thank you, Geral, it is greatly appreciated.

In 2013 you were facing a personal crisis in your life and you received an offer of sanctuary in the home of a person who knew of your dire circumstances and who offered to help.

As I study the reports that you made and some of the reactions of those who pretended to help you, I am incensed beyond description by the way you were treated in the temporary residence and thereafter.

Everyone knows that when a person needs help in this life, the first duty of the 'relief provider' is to do no further harm to the victim of painful circumstances, to not put the disadvantaged party (you) in a worse position (physically or emotionally) than the one that necessitated the assistance in the first place. If one seeks truly to help, then no excuse can cover up, nor justify such wicked actions directed against the suffering party.

I understand that you were grossly insulted and mistreated there and that afterwards you were further harassed by those who intentionally seek to hurt you again.

Please understand that from my perspective all that has transpired from the time of your stay in the so-called 'sanctuary' and continuing today reflects great discredit on the individuals who slander and malign you. The more these people obsess with or delight in bringing harm to you, the more evidence we see of their savagery. Such personalities, however, are often not capable of recognizing their own hideous perversions.

Today I saw the trash entered by Howard Nemaizer aka Nema.

I am heartbroken to know that you suffered in that hell hole by those who now reveal their true intentions toward you.

I am also empathetic for the circumstances of your life, especially in their company, because I too have encountered similar (but not so impossible) living conditions as the fbi pushed me into the street to live.

God Blesses you Barbara and we, all who know you, LOVE YOU.

Thank God you survived the ordeal and that you can relay the sordid, nightmarish scene to me and others. The dirty, insensitive statements by the evildoers could destroy a person of lesser strength.

THE AGE OF MADNESS & A Critical Review of FBI/CIA Operations

NOTE: In my estimation, this report by former FBI agent Geral Sosbee is a classic on the fundamental causes of the horrific treatment of Targets of the federal government (especially FBI & CIA), and the mindset which has expanded to permeate society at large, which Geral and I have personally experienced over decades.

This is not “theory”, it is reality. Harass the Target relentlessly. Drive the Target to destitution, homelessness. Assault him with high-tech war toys to destroy his health. Stalk him, place him under surveillance, engage in monstrous invasions of his privacy, destroy or steal his property, insult his honor, defame his good name...and then, when he reports the campaign against him, call him crazy, “delusional”, “paranoid”.

...Because such atrocities as reported here could not really be happening in these united States, the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

THE AGE OF MADNESS & A Critical Review of fbi/cia Operations

This report represents a summary of my reflections & analysis on fbi/cia/police/societal egregious agendas.

As I reflect on the past two decades of vicious assaults on me by agents and operatives of the fbi and the cia, I sometimes in my quiet moments seek to comprehend the cause or genesis of the evil that characterizes many of the horrid events that I describe in "My Story In Detail" and related data and links at

This report is a summary of some of my conclusions regarding the decadent public policy rationale that supports atrocities by government, including the imprisonment, torture (physical and psychological) and killing of human beings for no justifiable cause.

I hope that an enlightened populace may someday look inward and demand to know how many deaths and how much needless sufferings have been caused through episodes (such as those I describe in my reports) of government barbarity, gross insensitivity and macabre methodology; in the understanding of the injustices perhaps we can end them.

As most persons have no insight into the criminal minds and operations of government intelligence agents, little opportunity exists to address their crimes against humanity. Similarly, police authorities assist the intelligence services in the coverup of many felonies committed by the agencies and by the police themselves. Whistleblowers and others who try to expose egregious government crimes are outnumbered, out gunned, and portrayed as outlaws or madmen by the government predators who are trying to harm them.

For the average citizen, furthermore, society in generally is unresponsive to pleas for guidance from those persons who are, at the hands of government predators and perpetrators, needlessly suffering and dying. The same systemic treachery that often greets the whistleblower is waiting to ensnare the average citizen in crisis, as I pointed out to the court in my Writ at 534US894.

The common threads of public malice and inhumanity towards the object of government predatory agendas run throughout many social institutions today; such widespread animosity is now mainstream and serves as a kind of mind programming for the general population who very often plays an integral role in the planned and orchestrated assaults on the Targets who are sometimes labeled as madmen.

As we are born into a complex world that changes from moment to moment in terms of advances in technology, science, law, and contemporary standards for human conduct. No single individual can keep abreast of all the strictures (or expectations) that are brought to bear on our modern lives; even though we may think that we are experts in our own culture, we are not. Medical doctors do not know all the answers associated with causes for illnesses and diseases; lawyers often have no fast clue to finding remedies for legal issues that evolve from fast changing social mores; engineers and scientists must forever adjust design and focus of their work to deal with ever changing technologies, new discoveries and emerging societal forces and human needs.

The average individual human being may at times find himself adrift in an unfamiliar and alien sea filled with incalculable dangers. We have discovered that we cannot always cope with the stresses that we encounter on a daily basis. Returning war vets, or otherwise traumatized persons sometimes seek advice, treatment and comfort to ease medical conditions or psychological pressures. When no effective assistance is available, some of our fellow citizens may suffer, collapse and die, even while we watch on some popular cop or quasi news shows. In extreme cases the confused or disoriented citizen is imprisoned, tortured, forced into suicide, or shot dead by the very same government agents who pretend to defend our liberties.

This is an important point because no one among us is immune from neurosis when tragedy strikes. We should therefore reconsider our societal relationship with those we condemn (to prison or death), lest we abruptly someday join their numbers. Actions against a citizen by government agents and their citizen action committees often provoke the Target into wild conduct; such intentional assaults are intended to cause the Target to respond violently so that he may be arrested or killed.

We see examples of this on our streets almost daily; and I have presented numerous instances of such intentional provocations in many of my reports. Further, no attention is focused on psychological operations against a targeted person even though a growing number of persons worldwide now testify that they are targeted by ruthless and painful campaigns.

No law exists that may stop the type of violent activities in which the fbi and the cia engage regularly against their Targets, foreign and domestic. Even civil court judges routinely ignore the criminal actions of police and fbi against the accused. Thus the person portrayed as a madman on some TV shows is in reality a product of a corrupt public policy standard that authorizes the torture, imprisonment and killing of a given Target.

One plausible explanation for the apparent lunacy of government officials and their civilian supporters and followers is offered by Thomas Szasz, M.D. in his book THE AGE OF MADNESS, Jason Aronson, New York, 1974, Library of Congress , Catalogue Number 74-8401.

As I read his comments and analogies, I recall the hostilities against me (continuing to date for about twenty years) by the fbi; I believe that the most dangerous and destructive human beings in society are the members of the fbi, cia, police and their operatives throughout society who provoke, threaten, torture, malign, poison, libel, slander and attempt to kill (or to drive insane) the objects of their misguided misanthropy.

Society in a sense has become its own worst enemy; those otherwise innocent citizens (including doctors, lawyers and laymen) so engaged against their fellow citizen are accomplices to murder (or felonious assault) by aiding the murderers of the agencies of government we all rely upon. In this way we have become a nation of assassins.

Below is the explanation by Szasz which I find most compelling in the context of my review of the atrocities committed against me and others by the fbi and cia thugs. Italics are mine as are all brackets and contents therein:

As "in the Age of Faith political power was the monopoly of Church and State, so in the Age Of Reason, it is the monopoly of Science [Law] and State. The former celebrated its values by constructing cathedrals and religious shrines", while the latter does so by constructing hospitals "insane asylums [ and prisons] and by forcibly treating madmen [and accused criminals].

As “in the Age of faith, men confirmed the existence and glory of God by creating witches who worshipped the devil, and confirmed the power of God by multiplying the number and magnifying the dangerousness of witches; in the Age of Reason, men confirm the existence and glory of Reason by creating madmen who worship unreason, and confirm the power of Reason by multiplying the number and magnifying the dangerousness of madmen [criminals]." Men "regarded themselves as most faithful when they were surrounded by heretics; and that they regarded themselves as most reasonable when surrounded by madmen” [criminals].

Today we have tens of millions of persons imprisoned (or under threat of imprisonment) worldwide by men who regard themselves as "most reasonable''; the more people that they imprison, the more they fancy themselves as "most reasonable''. 

This is why, as Szasz writes, the Age of Faith was teeming with heretics; why the Age of Reason is teeming with madmen [criminals] and why I [Szasz] rename The Age of Reason, in honor of its victims,

The Age Of Madness. (Szasz, page 4).
