NOTE: In April, 2005, I wrote an open letter to Ted Gunderson, following the publication of one of Ted's smear pieces against Barbara Hartwell, published by his PR shill, Ken Adachi on his New Age/government disinfo website, 'Educate-Yourself'.

From 2000, when I broke off my professional association and personal friendship with Gunderson, for cause, after I discovered irrefutable evidence of his criminality, including coverups of child sex-trafficking; weapons & drug trafficking; and longstanding involvement in counterintelligence operations against government whistleblowers, survivors of military/intelligence black ops, I became a Target of a defamation campaign, the scope of which I have rarely seen.

For the following decade (until his death in 2011), Gunderson pursued his psy war against Barbara Hartwell, with a vengeance, resulting in massive damages to me, certain members of my family, my friends and colleagues.

COINTELPRO Kingpin Gunderson ran a criminal network comprised of a motley crew of stooges, criminals and G-Man wannabes, who were sicced on selected journalists, activists and whistleblowers who had gone public exposing government corruption.

Gunderson's crew stalked, harassed, libeled and slandered, engaged in monstrous invasions of privacy and criminal menacing against law-abiding citizens.

A charlatan named Ken Adachi, his primary PR shill, published numerous smear pieces against Barbara Hartwell, including the most diabolical calumny imaginable. 'Ken Adachi' is a pseudonym. Anyone who has attempted to sue him (for mail fraud, invasion of privacy, or libel) has not been able to track down his real name, or a location for a physical address to serve him with papers. (I know, I tried, as did others who sustained massive damages.)

Adachi's vile criminal operation began, to my knowledge, some time in 2000, shortly after I broke off my association with Gunderson. Adachi has a high-traffic, commercial website and has also distributed his smear pieces widely on other high-traffic sites.

I have noticed that Adachi's website (and Twitter account) have not been updated since May, 2019. It appears he is out of business (one can only hope). Possibly, he has died. I will put off any celebration until such time as I can confirm such events.

This demonic reprobate, Adachi, has done immeasurable damage to the reputations of legitimate people, including (but not limited to) Barbara Hartwell, Jackie McGauley, the late Michael Ruppert, Dr. Leonard Horowitz, Sherri Kane, while his “sources” for the defamation campaigns are aggressive career criminals, psycho stalkers, whackjobs and pathological liars, intent on fame and money in exchange for destroying the lives of their Targets.

Needless to say, despite my best efforts, I have not been able to sue any of these loathsome characters, due to lack of resources and support. It is clear that Justice is for sale, but not to those of us who live in dire poverty and under persecution, with no backup.

I will never stop fighting these evildoers, with all I have, in every lawful, ethical way available to me, until God sends the chariot to take me home. If that means the best I can do is continue to expose them, and warn others, so be it. And I pray for God's swift and terrible justice to be visited upon each and every one them.

Here, some excerpts from my open letter to Gunderson, which focus on the persecution by his entourage of criminal stooges, including the loathsome Ken Adachi.

I should add, for the record, that anyone who promotes Adachi, or his website (or promotes those who promote/ support/endorse Adachi) is an accomplice to Adachi's outrageous defamation of Barbara Hartwell and deserves absolute condemnation, no exceptions.

Two of the persons you have named, with whom you have chosen to ally yourself, certainly leave much to be desired, in terms of moral character, spiritual integrity and intellectual capacity. In my opinion, they are virtually bankrupt in these areas. I refer of course to Tim White and Ken Adachi. As you must know, I consider them both to be despicable on general principles, as well as to be fools and stooges of the lowest order. And since these individuals (among many others, who may be relevant in the issues being addressed here) have been publishing false and libelous allegations against me, many of which are outrageous in nature; and have been engaging in malicious character assassination against me for the past four (4) years, they will be held accountable by me and certain others whom they have maligned, libeled, slandered and/or harassed.

In the case of Tim White, he has perpetrated criminal harassment and even made death threats against me and others (some in writing) for which I have hard evidence, in the form of documentation, including: court documents furnished by a plaintiff, Doreen Bishop and her attorney, Warren Edson; material (e-mail messages, letters and reports, both private and public) written by Tim White; transcripts of criminal phone harassment (which continued after he received several directives to cease and desist) for which I have audiotapes; and/or the testimony of firsthand witnesses to these harassing and threatening calls. Some of the aforementioned has already been admitted as evidence in a Denver court.


I have in fact filed several criminal complaints against Tim White (as well as others with whom he was and/or is acting in collusion, such as Brenda M. Negri and Shirley Anderson) with various law enforcement agencies. I have evidence as well to substantiate that certain individuals (specifically including agents of the FBI) have been engaging in obstruction of justice by refusing to act on (or even investigate) my valid complaints of criminal conspiracy and racketeering by White, Negri and numerous others, who will all be named in both criminal complaints and civil lawsuits. This, despite the fact that I have provided hard evidence to the FBI to substantiate my claims that these individuals are engaging in criminal offenses that directly threaten me; and for which I have sustained massive damages, along with certain of my associates, members of my family and others.

I and others targeted for this criminal conspiracy are certainly well-equipped to prove these allegations in a court of law. I will also be publishing the aforementioned documentation (at such time as I have a website on-line) which serves as irrefutable evidence against Tim White.

These documents have also been distributed for safekeeping, in case something should happen to prevent me from publishing them myself.

As far as predicate felon (convicted of narcotics trafficking) Tim White is concerned, his violations against me and others are a criminal matter (in addition to legally actionable civil matters) and I do intend to continue to pursue every legal avenue available to me to see that he is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for his crimes. Most recently, Tim White has made numerous harassing phone calls, violating directives to cease and desist such harassment. He also sent me a harassing, threatening, obscene e-mail message on April 4, 2005 (violating my directives never to contact me by e-mail, phone or in any other way) which is in my evidence file and has also been forwarded to several witnesses for safekeeping.

As for Ken Adachi, since he chooses to continue to publicly endorse and promote Tim White (as well as by extension, his criminal activities) then he is also implicated, as one who is aiding and abetting the criminal conspiracy in which White is a participant and/or publicly soliciting the commission of crimes and privacy violations, as well as the obstruction of justice.

Furthermore, by continuing to libel me and promote the groundless, unwarranted and unsubstantiated falsehood (among many others) that I am a "CIA disinfo agent"; or that I am a "mind-controlled government disinfo agent" (or any of the many other malicious falsehoods about Barbara Hartwell which Adachi promotes) in order to maintain his position in defense of Tim White, yourself or others, such as Todd Brendan Fahey (also guilty of criminal harassment but who escaped prosecution only by leaving the country, after being admitted to a psychiatric/alcohol-drug rehab facility at Southern Maine Medical Center in July 2004; and who has been publicly disseminating libelous pornographic filth, character assassination, as well as many other damaging falsehoods, using my name) Ken Adachi will find himself having to answer in a court of law for promoting this damaging libel and aiding and abetting the criminal harassment of White and Fahey.

Todd Fahey is also a blackmailer, which crime he has publicly admitted and even boasted about on several public websites. In fact, Fahey has already been banned from several websites and message boards, since July 2004, specifically after he continued to write and post his libelous falsehoods about Barbara Hartwell, which included outrageous lies about non-existent sexual conquests, using vile obscenity and fabricating pornographic descriptions of alleged events which have no basis in fact, in connection to my name; forging and publishing letters and articles (using a defunct e-mail address to identify Barbara Hartwell as the alleged "source") which he falsely claims were written by me (identity theft); falsely attributing quotes and statements to me which have no basis in fact; also falsely alleging that Barbara Hartwell is a "drunk" with an "alcohol jones", etc. etc. etc.

The moderators of these message boards, I'm sure, were well aware that otherwise, they too could be sued for damages, along with Fahey. For those who have removed such libel and banned Fahey, I thank them and have no intention of involving them in any lawsuits. And for the record, let it be known that anyone who owns and/or hosts any website publishing these outrageous lies about Barbara Hartwell, and/or who engages in their dissemination in any way, will be held accountable for their participation in promoting this damaging libel and will be sued. Including (but certainly not limited to) Ken Adachi.


Considering the fact that Todd Fahey has also engaged in gross violations of my privacy by publishing my unlisted phone number (which had to be disconnected due to harassing calls made and solicited by Fahey, and for which I had to make several police reports); publishing the street address of my home on the Internet, an act committed with malice aforethought, which has also compromised my security and endangered my safety, Adachi implicates himself in this as well, since he published Fahey's libelous article (Barbara Hartwell: Where Does One Begin?) which contained my street address, on his website, Educate Yourself. Tim White has also posted this libelous article by Fahey on various Yahoo! groups of which he is a member.

Todd Fahey has also published a plethora of additional false information about the ownership of my home in Maine by 1) "a member of the John Birch Society" and 2) "a man named Frank Nulton", neither of which allegation has any basis in fact. He has also published the false allegations that: "Barbara Hartwell has lost residency in her home" and "has relocated to Brownsville, Texas where she is sharing an apartment with one Geral Sosbee". He further claimed to "know" these false allegations. Many, many other such false allegations about Barbara Hartwell have been made by Todd Fahey as well as Tim White. And published as libel on many websites and message boards.

Because of these false and libelous claims, in conjunction with Fahey's character assassination and vile lies, especially in falsely representing me as a "whore" and a "drunk"; because of his grossly false portrayal of me as engaging in the same sort of sordid and degenerate lifestyle which he himself pursues, I have incurred major damages, in the form of being additionally harassed by known and unknown persons; having other unscrupulous individuals publicly post and repeat these libelous falsehoods, for which Fahey was the source, such as criminal conspirators Brenda Negri and Tim White (along with many others); further, my family and friends have been subjected to gross privacy violations and harassed by persons publicly promoting these falsehoods as if they were based on fact – which they are not. I have sustained serious damages as a result of this libel campaign by these utterly loathsome individuals.

My friend and professional colleague, Ex-FBI agent Geral Sosbee, has also been subjected to privacy violations and harassment as a direct result of the libelous falsehoods being promoted by Todd Fahey, specifically related to Fahey's lie that "Barbara Hartwell has relocated to Brownsville, Texas and is sharing an apartment with one Geral Sosbee." Mr. Sosbee has publicly refuted this lie, more than once and has stated, for the record, that it is a falsehood fabricated by a pathological liar, Todd Fahey.


I can assure you and your "associates" that the moment I have anyone harassing me; stalking or even setting foot on my property, as a result of Fahey/Adachi/White (or any others) PUBLISHING my street address (which I took precautions and great pains never to disclose on any public documents; and which has never been made a matter of public record, by my decision, for the purpose of protecting my privacy and security) I will immediately report this firstly to the detective from the Old Orchard Beach Police Department who handled the investigation of Fahey's previous criminal harassment of me, which consisted of harassing phone calls, threats and stalking (and who had advised me to seek a restraining order against Fahey); as well as to any and all other law enforcement agencies which are appropriate) and I will provide all relevant information and documentation as to the collusion of these individuals in publicly disclosing private information and thus grossly violating my privacy, compromising my security and endangering my safety.

Fahey has already made public admissions of certain of these negligent, hazardous and destructive acts, which endangered the safety of myself and my family; such as setting a mattress on fire, in a guest room he was using during his stay at my home; presumably while smoking in bed after he passed out drunk; and which could easily have led to a fire in the entire house. The mattress was destroyed and had to be disposed of. As for other damages, I have witnesses who will substantiate the fact that Fahey tampered with/ destroyed my private property, including my only personal computer. This psychotic lowlife even boasted about his destructive sociopathic behavior.

Furthermore, anyone who publishes private information such as a street address (an address not part of any preexisting public records) is soliciting privacy violations, as well as soliciting the commission of crimes such as harassment and stalking. Since White and Fahey are both known stalkers and have both made threats of violence; and since this is a matter of public record, documented in police reports, I can certainly prove that their intent in disclosing my street address (with malice aforethought) was to encourage other criminals to violate my privacy; compromise my security and endanger my safety. Tim White, in fact, is under a permanent restraining order in Denver for stalking and criminal harassment, which included death threats.

I will also be able to prove that through publishing libelous falsehoods (accusing me of criminal acts, such as being under the illegal employ of CIA, specifically "CIA Headquarters at Langley, Virginia") that Ken Adachi has severely damaged my professional and personal reputation; cost me money in legal fees as well as costs incurred from pro se investigation; caused me profound emotional/psychological distress; exacerbated pre-existing chronic illness and disability (including but not limited to a heart condition) all of which are documented, through causing extreme traumatic stress; as well as costing me additional money, by the time I have been forced to take from other pursuits, necessary for my survival, to devote to defending myself against his many libelous falsehoods, privacy and security violations.

And please also be aware that Ken Adachi began his libel campaign against me at a time when I had never heard of his existence; had done nothing wrongful or unlawful to provoke these malicious assaults and the dissemination of lies and damaging character assassination which has continued unabated since March, 2001. Ken Adachi has a lot to answer for and I will make it my business to be sure he is held legally accountable for his wrongful acts as well as any such acts which are deemed by legitimate legal authorities to be unlawful/criminal in nature. The same applies to Tim White, Brenda Negri and others.


The criminal harassment, death threats, false accusations of criminal violations, libel and slander of these and other individuals are all well documented and can be proven to be part and parcel of a criminal conspiracy in which various individuals (including but not limited to the persons named here) are colluding, with malice aforethought, to inflict harm upon me, certain of my friends, associates and family members. I can also prove racketeering.

Oh, one more thing. Perhaps you'd like to read this latest commentary (below) from your "personal friend", Tim White, the "Concerned Citizen". It was posted on a Yahoo! message board called Vietnam Vets on the Net.

I think this message (below) speaks for itself, as to Tim White's delusional paranoid fantasies, and his malicious intent, especially about Barbara Hartwell.

Where in hell does he come up with this stuff? Is it being fed to him?...or does he just make it up, out of whole cloth? And gee whiz, Ted, forgive me for subjecting you to the vile obscenity used here by White, as I'm sure you'll find it as appalling as I do. Especially since he used this as his "preface" to your open letter to me. But perhaps (if you are in fact agreement with White's bizarre allegations) you could issue a directive to your PR rep, Ken Adachi, to post it under the Tim White Postings section on his website, Educate Yourself. It would certainly fit right in with Adachi's general content, as it would serve to "educate" the readers (at least those dumb enough to buy into Adachi's scurrilous brand of "journalism") about CIA and government mind control operations.

Well, thank you, Tim White, for your complimentary remarks. And for exposing yourself, yet again, for the delusional, paranoid psychotic you are. Actually, the "budget" you refer to has not been made available to me from Langley. Nor have I received any such "programming" or "implants". And once again, for the record, I do not work for CIA, nor do they sponsor my activities or contract for my services in any way. I'll prove that in a court of law as well.

Get real, Mr. White. As if Langley could give a damn about a noxious little gadfly like you. Nobody cares one way or another, except the people you are criminally harassing (whose only objective as regards you is to put you out of business) and those exploiting you and/or in collusion with you to harass, libel and slander myself and others. But in the final analysis, since you are the most inconsequential of persons, you're expendable. Since you've made quite a muddle of the "missions" you've been tasked with; since you are a rank amateur whose efforts to discredit legitimate persons have failed miserably thus far, you cannot possibly be seen as anything but a liability to those still foolish enough to exploit you for their own ends. Mark my words: It's only a matter of time until you will be forced (one way or another) to stop your criminal harassment and the spreading of your many malicious lies.

And actually, I'd rather not "silence" you. By all means, keep at it!...keep shooting your loud, vulgar, stupid mouth off. I'd rather just let you keep digging your own grave by publishing your idiotic libelous falsehoods about Barbara Hartwell. Since you've been warned repeatedly to cease and desist and have disregarded my directives, as well as those of others, I'll just keep saving your intellectual gems in my large file on you, as evidence of your continued criminal harassment, libel and certifiable insanity. You, Mr. White, have proven yourself to be a menace to society and as such, as many of your targets will agree, should be locked up in a criminal psycho ward, along with your like-minded, perverted pals, Todd Fahey and Brenda Negri.

But back to you, Ted. Perhaps it would behoove you to rein in your flunky, Tim White. His despicable behavior certainly does not reflect well on you; nor does it enhance your credibility to have a perverted whackjob like this coming to your "defense", as Ken Adachi puts it, standing up for you against the "smears" of a “mind-controlled government disinfo agent” like Barbara Hartwell”.

I'm sure you and the self-styled "expert" on Psy Ops, Ken Adachi, will accuse me of using a "Communist propaganda technique". Don't you know? Anyone who takes the time to supply detailed information, facts or evidence for the purpose of refuting lies; exposing criminal violations and conspiracies; or setting the record straight, has to be a "CIA mind-controlled propagandist". What other explanation could there possibly be?

You, Ted Gunderson, are truly amazing the way you have twisted the truth to place the blame on me, Jackie McGauley and others, for the very tactics and crimes that you yourself are guilty of. But the difference is, we have solid evidence. Where's yours?

If you'd like to talk about a "motley crew", here's one for you: Tim White, Ken Adachi, Todd Fahey, Brenda Negri, Larry Lawson, James Choron, Dennis Bossack, Doug Millar, Pam Schuffert...just to name a number of y'all. But I'm no "programmed propaganda idiot". You've made a grave mistake if you have underestimated me, my intelligence or my training. But then, I'd have to say, so did CIA. Tough.

And I want no further arguments with you and your little gaggle of flunkies, provocateurs, porno-mongers, blackmailers, extortionists, nutcases, drug-dealers and pathological liars, either. I have nothing further to say to them and aside from presenting my evidence against them in court, won't waste much more of my time on them.

My time is valauble too. So I'm through talking. If this were the Old West, we could have a shoot-out at the OK Corral. But times have changed and we're more civilized now, aren't we? So let's have it out in court, shall we? Let the scales of justice balance as they will. Let the chips fall where they may.
