NOTE: Here are excerpts from 2 reports (2005 & 2006) on the subject of COINTELPRO, which focus on the engineered spreading of disinformation, black propaganda and the defamation campaigns run against legitimate journalists, human rights activists and government whistleblowers, as well as genuine, sincere patriots and Christians.

These reports were written at a time before social media became the main venue for most everyone who uses the Internet. (What a crying shame!) I have made no secret of the fact that I HATE...hate, hate, media. I've never used it and never will.

Social media is a tool of totalitarian systems, socialistic/communistic in nature, designed to destroy the personal boundaries, privacy and spiritual integrity of the INDIVIDUAL. It is a free-for-all, where anything goes...anything, that is, EXCEPT for Christian values, moral absolutes, and the principles on which this Constitutional Republic, under the Rule of Law, was founded.

If you don't believe this, just take a hard look at WHO is being censored, banned and relentlessly harassed. Is it the violent lunatic leftists, the progressives, the New Agers, the secular humanists? Is it the psycho stalkers, the whackjobs, the pathological liars, the snoops and snitches, hell-bent on destroying the reputations of decent, honorable persons who love God, country and family? 

Hell, no! These reprobates, these God-haters, these demonic scum criminals, are allowed free rein, as long as the money keeps rolling in, and the principles on which this nation was founded are destroyed in the process.

Regarding the information presented here, it is still just as valid, just as relevant as it ever was. But social media has certainly tremendously exacerbated the problem. The crazies are now going hog-wild, and there is no end in sight.

This report addresses several issues related to COINTELPRO-style operations.

COINTELPRO (counter intelligence program) was initiated in 1956 under FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. A similar program, Operation Chaos, was run by CIA during the Cold War Era.

Today, these programs continue, though under different names and operations, with various federal agencies involved in their web of deception, skulduggery, black propaganda and carefully-crafted disinformation.

Their overarching agenda: Mainly to neutralize and/or discredit legitimate government whistleblowers who have come forward with truthful, accurate, factual information which is damaging to the criminals who have overthrown the U.S. Government from within. These criminals have subverted the United States Constitution; they are operating in collusion with a cabal of elitist plutocrats worldwide, to implement a totalitarian One World Government, otherwise known as the New World Order.

Though this brief overview is common knowledge to all well-informed individuals, what most do not understand is the inner workings of the criminal conspiracy connected to COINTELPRO, whose agents have infiltrated ALL levels of government; ALL activist organizations; ALL political parties, coalitions and PACs.

You name it, they've infiltrated it. I have yet to see an exception and don't expect I ever will. In fact, the main reason there is no real difference between the Democrats and the Republicans, though they each may outwardly promote a different agenda, is because both parties are controlled from above by the same cabal which runs the criminal conspiracy.

The criminal conspiracy is completely pervasive and functions like a well-oiled machine. The architects of the conspiracy are nearly "bullet proof". Their position at the pinnacle of the hierarchy is so far removed from – so far above-- the government officials, intelligence operatives, law enforcement personnel, military personnel, and the rank-and-file government employees and civil servants who simply "follow orders", that obtaining solid evidence against the movers and shakers of the Global Elite is a Herculean task. So it's no surprise that they are known in intelligence circles as the Olympic Cartel.


But for those persistent and dedicated investigators and independent intelligence analysts, there are ways to beat the system; to unravel the web of corruption. Starting at the top is not an effective method. We start where we have easy access to verifiable information and where collecting evidence is only a matter of time, effort and investigative legwork.

And for those whistleblowers and activists such as myself who have been targeted by the criminal conspiracy, we begin by focusing not on the higher levels of government operatives giving the orders, but on those tasked with carrying out the orders. Just as in the drug cartels, though it is already known who actually runs them, criminal investigators often start with the low-level street dealers, gathering evidence, and work their way up to the drug lords from there. It is often just a matter of connecting the nodes in the web and developing the evidence as the investigation progresses.

Now, it is important to understand the concept of "plausible deniability". Quite simply, this means that the conspirators and liars running the COINTELPRO-style operations set up a little insurance policy to protect themselves; a contingency plan in case their criminal operations are exposed. They can then DENY any involvement or wrongdoing which might implicate them in the conspiracy.

How do they do this? One way is to use lowly minions to do their dirty work: those who have no official status within the government, from whom they can easily distance themselves if their plans go awry. The minions fall into several categories by which they can be identified.

But most importantly, they are all considered expendable. They are expendable, because in the final analysis, in the Big Picture, they are deemed inconsequential nobodies by the powers-that-be.

[ALERT TO READERS, added November 17, 2006:

One (or more) of the COINTELPRO minions (not mentioned by name in this report) have taken this report and posted it on various websites, selectively DELETING certain parts of the report. One site on which I found that certain portions had been deleted was Liberty Forum.

I did not post this report on that site myself (the "source" was named as The Revolutionary Coalition message board, on which it was originally posted by Rick Stanley) and yet I found my name there as the purported "poster".

Below, in bold type, is one entire subheading of this report which was totally deleted, COINTELPRO MINIONS: EXPENDABLE HIRELINGS. Certain portions of another subheading, EXPUNGING LOYALTY, DESTROYING LOVE, were also deleted by this malicious "cut-and-paste" forger, specifically my comments on Jesus Christ and the importance of spiritual love in defeating evil.

I should also mention that one of the most despicable of these government stooges, criminals and provocateurs, a psychopath by the name of Todd Brendan Fahey, has for years been perpetrating identity theft and forgery (including of the "cut-and-paste" variety) among other crimes, against Barbara Hartwell; ex-FBI agent Geral Sosbee and others.

In fact, Fahey was banned from Liberty Post in 2004, for libel, stalking, and for obscenity – fabricating pornographic filth in connection with my name. However, Fahey is known to use many aliases and screen names, by which he gets back into the forums from which he has been banned. In the "comments" section of Liberty Post, after this report, I noted that one of Fahey's many screen names (which being the coward he is, he has a habit of hiding behind) was listed.

I also find it interesting (and typical) that this DELETED subsection describes Todd Fahey to a "T". Criminal; stalker; psychopath; drug abuser; porno-monger; pathological liar; COINTELPRO minion and "spook wannabe". This creep is the lowest of the low, even among his fellow government toadies.

Fahey has also, in the past, "edited" the material of certain writers (including Barbara Hartwell) without permission and has notably REMOVED all references to Jesus Christ or anything of a Christian nature. By his own admission, he is not a Christian and has claimed that talking about Christ makes a person "sound too religious". Aside from the fact that Fahey has no right whatsoever to tamper with the work of others; nor to appoint himself as the arbiter of the religious beliefs of others, it is clear that there is a more sinister motive for him to DELETE all references to Christ. I'll leave it to the readers to figure that one out.

So that the readers may be certain they are seeing the WHOLE REPORT, and so they may see for themselves a case in point of the tactics used by these government stooges and liars, I have put this section in RED TYPE. BH]


1) Criminals

Those convicted of a crime (or known to be involved in criminal activities) who wish to make a deal for a Get-Out-of-Jail-Free card by becoming snitches; and/or by targeting the former intelligence/law enforcement personnel or others who have become government whistleblowers.

2) Activists/Amateurs/ Wannabes

Members of political activist groups, or individual activists, many of whom are merely dupes, hoodwinked by the covert government operatives (who pose as patriots, especially organizers or "leaders") and are drawn into their web with (false) promises. The operatives often choose those who are ambitious amateurs; "wannabes" (those with no training, expertise or background in intelligence work, law enforcement or other disciplines) and appeal to their egos to give them a false sense of "importance" --when in reality they are merely stooges being used for a government-sponsored agenda.

3) Drug Abusers and Psychopaths

Some individuals from this third category may also fall into the first two. Psychopaths are particularly useful, as they can easily be dismissed by the government operatives as whackjobs, nutcases, kooks, lone nutters, etc. should they become a liability. These types are often easier to control --if they get out of line, they can simply be thrown into a mental ward with few questions asked. Now, this is not to say that the government operatives don't try to impugn the sanity of legitimate whistleblowers, in order to neutralize them --they most certainly do. But the difference is, some of those used as minions in the COINTELPRO are REAL nutcases and the operatives controlling them are well aware of that fact.

Most are also pathological liars who may be delusional; narcissistic and entertain paranoid fantasies, which are purposely fueled by the government operatives. Often the designated targets (whistleblowers) are falsely accused of various plots or crimes against the delusional/paranoid minions.

The COINTELPPRO operatives feed them such false information in order to engender a personal vendetta against the targets. A vendetta which is based on falsehoods; twisting factual information to demonize the target; and often outright lies.

There also may be an element of hero worship – worship of the covert (and not so covert) government operatives by their dupes and minions. When one of the bad guy operatives is exposed by legitimate whistleblowers, the minions rally to his defense, attacking the targeted whistleblowers for what they claim are their "unjust" accusations or "lies."

Nothing could be further from the truth. The minions have been manipulated into promoting the very lies their controllers have fabricated, and continuing the cover-up of criminal activity, be it drugs-for-weapons deals; child sex abuse; money laundering; blackmail; espionage or any other forms of criminal conspiracy/racketeering.

The primary key to using these minions to target whistleblowers is manipulation, often through behavior modification tactics. Appeal to their emotions, by which they are ruled. Flatter their egos. Make them feel "important." Make them feel like real "players." Make them believe they are "doing the right thing"; going after the "bad guys" (legitimate whistleblowers); fool them into believing they are serving "Truth"and "Justice."

Meanwhile, it's all based on lies. Usually outrageous lies, demonizing the targets (legitimate whistleblowers) with the purpose of discrediting their testimony about REAL government crimes and corruption.

Facts; logical reasoning; critical analysis: these have no place in the COINTELPRO. It is based upon a web of falsehood, spun by liars, inside a hall of smoke and mirrors.

COINTELPRO also exploits the "alternative media" to do their dirty work. Since the advent of the Internet as the major "news" venue, the level of professionalism in journalism has plummeted. These days, just about anyone can put up a blog and promote their opinions, write editorials and distribute them to be available to thousands, even millions of readers. The very same operatives who recruit the dupes and minions also rely on alternative media websites and radio programs to spread their disinformation far and wide.

COINTELPRO TACTICS: Excerpts from Open Letter to Constitutional Activist Rick Stanley (2005)

Link to original report:


I have been targeted for vicious harassment (at times of a criminal nature) by many of the unconscionable, ignorant and misguided people who populate the Internet. This harassment has included libel and slander campaigns by various individuals, many of whom comprise a loose-knit network of dupes and minions of the FBI/CIA et al, broadly known as a COINTELPRO-style operation.

(CIA also implemented a similar program, Operation CHAOS, geared toward illegal domestic spying and sabotage of the activities of "dissidents"; however, COINTELPRO better describes the operation as it has been run by both agencies since the advent of the Internet, which only became a major venue for such operations about ten years ago.)

The purpose of the COINTELPRO operation: To publicly discredit those legitimate individuals who are telling the truth about criminals, tyrants and traitors in government; and to sabotage the work of genuine activists standing up against the New World Order.

COINTELPRO --instituted in the 1950s under the auspices of the FBI by J. Edgar Hoover-- involves, among other operations, professional intelligence operatives who organize amateurs (who pose as political activists; "patriots" or even "Christians") to target bona fide whistle-blowers, survivors of government black operations, sincere patriots and defenders of the Constitution, by demonizing their character; spreading lies and disinformation; Machiavellian divide-and-conquer tactics; as well as harassment campaigns by e-mail and phone, even stalking (cyber-stalking included).

These sowers of discord --provocateurs and saboteurs-- are nothing but stooges, patsies being used for a purpose they are not nearly smart enough to comprehend. They do not think for themselves and thus lack spiritual and intellectual discernment.

They are little nobodies, aimlessly drifting nowhere --that is, until they are set on a 'remote-control' course to execute someone else's agenda.

These pawns of the powers-that-be don't need credentials, training nor even a formal education and most have none of these advantages.

It's a no-brainer. The only 'credentials' these self-important pathological liars (many of whom are also delusional) need to get the job done are a loud mouth; a dishonest, deceitful and dishonorable nature; a worship of government authority figures; a willingness to blindly follow orders; a lack of scruples; and an axe to grind...close enough for government work.

Voila: The COINTELPRO operatives have rounded up some cheap-and-easy labor to carry out the low-level dirty work for Le Grande Frere, now conveniently protected under the umbrella of the fascist behemoth Homeland Security and the treasonous Patriot Acts.

The COINTELPRO minions not only serve as provocateurs, they are also what I call "time-wasters", as the targeted individual often uses up much precious time defending oneself from the unrelenting attacks, usually in the form of libelous disinformation being spread on the Internet or on radio programs.

I should add that some of these very foolish people (including Shirley Anderson and Tim White) previously exposed and listed in my reports, have actually accused me of being a "CIA assassin" and of drawing up a "hit list" or even a "death list" with their names on it.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Firstly, these pathetic losers wouldn't be worth the trouble for any real "assassin" from any government agency to target for elimination. The very thought is laughable.

They don't know anything; were never involved in anything important and are of no consequence in the larger schemes of political intrigue and government operations. They're merely stooges, dupes who inflate their own importance, often being delusional to boot.

But more to the point, I'm not a murderer, not an assassin and never have been...but being a warrior for truth and justice, I DO go for the jugular (figuratively speaking, of course) operating from righteous outrage over the perpetual harassment from these would-be, wanna-be, aspiring government goons and those who control them.

They've been warned and I can assure them they will pay a heavy price, spiritually (if not also materially) for disregarding my directives to cease and desist their harassment, cyber-stalking and vicious libel.


Most of the libel is presented in the form of brief "blurbs" in the sloppy hit-and-run style favored by most of the provocateurs who write and post them. They don't write real reports; neither do they bother gathering or furnishing facts or evidence.

They are not in possession of any facts. And their motto seems to be: We don't need no stinkin' evidence!

No, no....they do not concern themselves with such meaningless things as facts or evidence. After all, they are not journalists, not investigators; not professionals in any field or discipline.

They are merely a gaggle of rank amateurs, acting as provocateurs on orders from those above them in the COINTELPRO or DCS (Domestic Contact Service, an illegal domestic covert program run by CIA which also uses low-level snitches and provocateurs to target American citizens) chain of command.

These amateurs occupy the bottom rung of the ladder (more accurately, they are wallowing in the mud under the ladder) and there are none below them; thus they can't stoop any lower than they already are.

All provocateurs by nature are cowards. Many (not all) hide behind pseudonyms or silly screen names and thus have no credibility whatsoever.

Perhaps the most salient and ludicrous example of a screen name used by a notorious provocateur is "Ranger Rick" that of Brenda M. Negri.

Although anyone who has ever been targeted by Negri knows her real name, to the present time (January 2005) she has never used her real name, nor admitted that her many libelous posts under various screen names (even death threats, posted on public message boards!) were written by Brenda Negri.

And Negri has been at it (to my knowledge) since September 2001, beginning her malicious harassment of government whistle-blowers, including Barbara Hartwell, Al Martin, Ed Schooling, Michael Ruppert, Geral Sosbee, shortly after 9-11. Now, there's some food for thought...

It's best to remember that these provocateurs are all pathological liars. How else could they attempt to justify the unjustifiable: bearing false witness against their targets, most of whom are people they have never met; do not know, even by any form of casual acquaintance.

What they may think they know usually comes from the malicious gossip and libelous falsehoods being promoted by others of their ilk, other idiots with axes to grind.

As for the lies they promote: They will simply take one outrageous lie, the more outlandish the better, usually furnished by their dark overlords, such as: "Barbara Hartwell is CIA, once a spook, always a spook !" (Larry Lawson)...

...or "She's a nark --watch out!" (Spread by some of Alex Jones's cohorts, including Paul Joseph Watson, who posted such comments on Info Wars and Prison Planet after grandstander and false patriot Jones arranged to get me cut off in the middle of a radio program and then made sure I was banned from the radio station for good)....

...or "Barbara Hartwell is a rogue CIA operative with longtime connections to Wackenhut !" (Brenda Negri aka Ranger Rick aka The Fifth Horseman aka many other idiotic aliases)...

...or "Barbara Hartwell is a whore, that CIA bitch, she's George Bush's trollop!" (Tim White aka the Phantom.)

......And by far the most damaging character assassination of any of the vile lies being disseminated by a provocateur, "I had sex with Barbara Hartwell" (alcoholic whackjob Todd Brendan Fahey aka Larry McDonald aka Agent Provocateur aka spookyermomma aka many other aliases).

If you are a legitimate whistle-blower, genuine patriot or sincere could be next in line to be targeted....


Here's how the scheme works: Each lie is posted and reposted ad infinitum, on every e-mail group or public message board the provocateurs can find --and there are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of such places on the Web willing to accomodate these liars and provide a public forum for their libel campaigns.

Over time, many people (at least those lacking in intelligence and discretion) believe these outrageous lies to be true, simply for having seen them repeated so many times. They will believe anything they read, no matter how preposterous or improbable the lie; no matter how dubious the source.

Like so much horse manure, the lies are passed along by the trowel-full, used to fertilize the toxic grapevine which grows longer and more convoluted with each lie that sprouts from it. And so the cycle continues...lies fed in...lies sprouting out...lies fed in...lies sprouting out....
