Excerpt from website:

Whereas the Declaration of Independence declares all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness and,

Whereas, there are elected officials within government who are openly promoting the violation of these rights by forcing people to be vaccinated and by introducing the COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone (TRACE) Acts H.R. 6666 and S. 3624 and,

Whereas Alan Dershowitz, an attorney for President Trump stated, “You have no constitutional right to endanger the public and spread the disease, even if you disagree. You have no right not to be vaccinated, we have to be vaccinated” and,

Whereas the videos at

describe the potential danger associated with certain vaccines and the development of what might well be the “Mark of the Beast” and,

Whereas citizens have the Right to decide which if any vaccinations to take and the items to be injected into their bodies and who vehemently oppose such vaccinations and insertions and refuse to allow their unalienable Rights to be violated and,

Whereas governments insistence to violate peoples unalienable rights could easily precipitate a civil war, therefore

Be it Resolved Friends of Liberty United’s position is that City Councils, County Boards of Supervisors or Commissioners and/or State Legislatures should exercise their rightful powers of interposition and nullification and pass legislation declaring their jurisdictions to be “sanctuary” Cities, Counties and States in which their citizens cannot be compelled to be vaccinated or to have foreign items inserted into their bodies but are free to receive them should they so desire, and,

Be it further Resolved that every County Sheriff inform their constituents that they will honor their oath by not allowing them to be forcefully vaccinated or to have an unwanted item inserted into their bodies against their will and that to be sure she/he is capable of supporting her/his position she/he is calling upon every able bodied person possessing a weapon and who is proficient in its use to register with her/his office for possible deputizing to help enforce the law should the need arise.

NOTE: I wrote this report in 2004, when I had known Geral Sosbee for 3 years. I consider this one of the most valuable pieces I have written, and have often republished it, as have other journalists.

August 30, 2020 will be Geral's 75th birthday, so I was inspired to republish it in his honor.

Happy Birthday, Geral, and God bless you.

Thank you for your outstanding service to this nation, and for all the lives you have touched, many of whom you may not know.

Love from your colleague and friend,

"America is a willingness of the heart."

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Imagine this: He is an American citizen, born and raised in the U.S. of A. As a young man, he enlists in the military, the U.S. Army, where he serves his country as a soldier in Vietnam. Following military service, he earns a college degree and begins a career with the FBI, where he specializes in espionage/foreign intelligence operations. After leaving the FBI, he pursues post-graduate studies and earns a law degree, becomes a Doctor of Jurisprudence. He goes on to become a prosecuting attorney in the state of Texas and subsequently an associate municipal court judge. As a university professor, he teaches Constitutional law, at the graduate and undergraduate levels, including to military personnel.

Sounds like an enviable life, doesn't it? A life any American would be honored to call his own. The life of an American Patriot, a Defender of the Constitution who loves his country so much he is willing to give his all in dedication to the service of its loftiest ideals...Liberty and Justice for All.

But as you read on, you will discover that somewhere, somehow... something went terribly wrong. Life did not turn out as it should have for this American Patriot....


He is now, at age 58, financially destitute, having been forced into bankruptcy in 2003 resulting from the FBI and CIA campaign to destroy him. He was at one time forced to live in his car, moving from place to place; and to borrow from his credit cards to survive as he sought safe haven from his tormentors.

He suffers physical disabilities (associated with a back injury in Viet Nam and a knee injury sustained while in FBI service) both of which have been exacerbated by the chronic illnesses brought on by poisonings and assaults with directed energy ("non-lethal") weaponry.

He has had most of his property stolen or destroyed, including two (2) computers, a car and a motorcyle (which were not protected by bumper-to-bumper warranties). Now being without a vehicle, unable to afford to replace his losses, he is forced to walk or take public transportation. Being without a computer, he is forced to go to a library or pay for the use of a computer elsewhere in order to continue his work. Work for which he receives no compensation but pursues as a tormented labor of love, still driven by the need to serve his country in the pursuit of Liberty and Justice for All. The same liberty and justice which have been denied to him by the henchmen of the corrupt system he seeks to expose and to hold accountable for its crimes against its own citizens.

This story of political persecution, violations of privacy and outrageous abuses of human rights, that of ex-FBI agent Geral W. Sosbee, may stretch credibility to the breaking point, but is nonetheless the unvarnished truth. How can I be so sure his story is true? Because the hero of the story is a man I have come to know well, and now consider to be my best friend.

I also believe in him because I have conducted my own thorough investigation of his case over a period of three (3) years, from 2001-2004. I have listened to countless hours of his testimony. He has allowed me to interrogate and debrief him in order that I might have a full understanding of the situation. (Just ask Geral, I can be the most brutal of interrogators, in search of the facts and the truth.) In the course of this investigation I have collected a large file of his written reports, documenting events which have transpired between 1971 (his first year in the FBI) and the present time. I have studied the documents (official gov't letters and FBI reports) which validate his claims.

But more than all of this, I myself have become a witness to some of the tactics of harassment being used by criminal elements of the FBI and CIA in attempts to neutralize one of their former agents. They regularly comandeer the phone lines and sabotage our calls. They put echo chambers on the line and break in with electronic interference to let us know they are on the case, listening to and recording every word. They shut off his cell phone after he commits the crime of talking to me. They send "punishing" or taunting e-mail messages to Geral, on the subject matter of our various calls, to let him know they don't like him talking to me. But I think they hate it most when we laugh at them, finding comic relief in the absurdity of their sophomoric behavior.

Yes, the very government he served with honor for so many years is responsible for designing and implementing a terror campaign so brutal, it's amazing that he has survived it thus far. I can honestly say, with no reservations, that the persecution Geral Sosbee has been targeted for is by far the worst I have ever investigated or even heard of, barring none. He is pursued, day in, day out, by the Hounds of Hell. They invade his home, poison his food, send thugs to intercept him at the bus stop or in other public places. They assault him with ELF weaponry in the apartment where he now lives, so that he has little chance of getting any sleep.

There will be those who would rather turn their eyes away; who do not want to believe Geral Sosbee's story for the simple reason that it is unfathomable to them that such evil, such brazen iniquity, could exist in the hearts and minds of so many of those in positions of power and authority in our government. But I will ask you, if nothing else, to suspend judgment and read on with your own open mind and compassionate heart. The truth will set you free, though at first it may hurt like hell. Hopefully, it will also make you mad as hell.


In 1978, while he was working in New York City, the FBI orchestrated the breakup of Sosbee's marriage, using operatives to cause his wife to abandon the relationship. Then, having isolated Sosbee by removing his primary source of support, the FBI surrounded him one day in the apartment complex where he lived, using more than half a dozen FBI agents who gave him the following ultimatum: Resign or be incarcerated in a mental institution.

The FBI's reason for the forced resignation was that Sosbee had reported perjury, suppression of evidence and other irregularities --which comprised obstruction of justice-- to his supervisor years earlier. The cases in which the FBI crimes were committed implicated dozens of FBI agents, supervisors and possibly the Director himself. The same cases were used --and are still being used to the present day-- as legal precedent for all future cases of similar facts. The end of the appeal time for some of the plaintiffs and defendants in the cases in which Sosbee was involved as an FBI agent (and arresting officer) terminated at about the same time that Sosbee was forced out. The FBI waited until the statutory time limits elapsed for appeals (in the suspect cases) so as to preclude Sosbee from discovering and reporting the crimes and cover ups in the cases. Today the FBI uses the precedents mentioned above to prevent other defendants and plaintiffs from receiving a fair hearing.

Imagine that: A person who defends the Constitutional rights of both suspects and law enforcement personnel is deemed "insane". What a sorry nation we have become. How far we have fallen from the ideals of our Founding Fathers.

So before going further, it is important to understand that Geral Sosbee's forced resignation from the FBI --under threat of losing his liberty and having his sanity impugned-- was a direct result of his uncompromising adherence to proper legal procedures as a law enforcement officer; and of keeping his sacred oath to defend the Constitution of the United States of America. This might-makes-right attitude by government authorities with overblown egos and a shortage of gray matter may well get over in a Banana Republic, but is insufferable --not to be tolerated!-- in the Constitutional Republic.


It is deeply ironic that while working for the FBI, from 1971 until his forced resignation in 1978, Geral Sosbee had received several commendations from the FBI Director for excellence in service. Here is one such letter:

Dear Mr. Sosbee:

I am pleased to commend you for your excellent services relative to the Unlawful Flight to Avoid Prosecution case concerning William Elisha Davidson and Ella Coffin Davidson.

Even though this investigation was of a trying and difficult nature, you pursued your
responsibilites with attentiveness, perseverance and dedication.

Your valuable services were in keeping with the Bureau's highest traditions.

Sincerely yours,
L. Patrick Gray
Acting Director

[Please see Geral's website for the original document]

Then, there is the FBI History Book, in which Geral Sosbee is one of those Special Agents listed, describing some of his accomplishments while in service to the FBI. Below, a summary of the book:

"Turner Publishing Company is proud to have assisted the Society of Former Special Agents in compiling this volume of their history. The stories collected here, from the Bureau's history to the nearly 1,400 individual biographies, recount the courage, intelligence and integrity of those who have served in the most elite law enforcement organization in the land....Turner also would like to thank all former Special Agents and their families who contributed photographs, biographical or anecdotal material for the book...."

On page 11 of the book (which may be borrowed from a public library through the Library of Congress) the FBI mission is stated in part as follows :

"...and to perform these responsibilities in a manner that is faithful to the Constitution of the United States of America."

So, for those who still find it a stretch to believe that the FBI could persecute one of their own, how much MORE of a stretch is it to comprehend how FAITHFULNESS TO THE U.S. CONSTITUTION could be the primary cause for such a harassment campaign?


Now, in his own words, some comments from Geral Sosbee, describing some of his former colleagues.

Samuel W. Jones, now deceased. Sam was an outstanding FBI agent and a close friend who advised me that the FBI intended to end my career soon; this occurred while I worked in the Albuquerque and Alamogordo FBI offices.

Benjamin H Cook, now retired, was the Assistant Special Agent In Charge of the Springfield, Illinois FBI office while I served under his command in the Rock Island Resident Agency of the FBI. Cooke was a part of the general conspiracy to keep me silent by transferring me to the Defence Language Institute in California after he learned that all the agents in the Rock Island Office refused to assist me in an arrest that I was ordered to make alone (a procedure unheard of, to be sent out with no backup.) Cooke was fully aware of the slander campaign which was intended to force me to resign. Besides all of this, Ben Cooke was and is now a good man who, under any other circumstances, I would have been honored to serve.

Lawrence M. Connelley and James R. Rogers, both served in the Rock Island FBI office with me and were aware of the conspiracy to force me out.

Donald E. Ritchey, now retired and living in Ft. Worth, Texas. Ritchey is the FBI agent who was with me at the time we illegally arrested an innocent woman named Margarett Rodriguez and falsely charged her with various criminal memorialized in the law books. Prior to the arrest I advised Ritchey (about 15 years my senior) that I reviewed the file on the accused and that I could find no evidence of any type of criminal activity. Ritchey advised me to report this to the supervisor and to the case agent, which I did. Ritchey could verify many of my statements, but he is afraid to do so. He could single- handedly cause a Congressional Investigation into FBI corruption by simply coming forward to confirm that I helped arrest the accused against my will and against my stated verbal protestations. Ritchey retired from the FBI January, 1979, just a few months after my forced resignation from the FBI. Also, the statute of limitations for a plaintiff's appeal of the Rodriguez case expired in 1978; Ritchey and I were both defendants in the civil case and I was prevented from testifying. Ritchey now lives a comfortable life and I am tormented; as far as I am concerned he is a coward or a fool for his refusal to back me up.

Why not put THAT in the FBI History Book? And while they're at it, the publishers could make some other revisions and tell the FBI's history LIKE IT REALLY IS.


Geral Sosbee was first brought to my attention in early 2001, by a friend, formerly in military service and retired from the LAPD. I went to Geral's website to check it out. Over the years, I have known quite a few whistleblowers out of government service; some have gone public using their actual names, some have used pseudonyms. I also know many former military and intelligence operatives who have spoken to me privately but have chosen for various reasons, not to make their cases public. But in most cases, they all approached me to begin our correspondence. Being something of a recluse (even to the point of being anti-social) I do not normally seek out contact with other people. I have been burned too many times when agents were planted on me in the guise of well-wishers or supporters of my work. For the most part, all I want is to be left alone.

But once I started to read the material on Geral's website, I felt I had to make an exception for him and initiate contact myself. This was because so much of what he reported, the specific harassment tactics, including the violations of his privacy and personal boundaries; the 24-hour surveillance in his home, his car and everywhere he went; the break-ins to his home, the drugging and poisoning of his food and drink, the slander campaigns, and being accosted by government goons, was eerily similar to what had happened to me.

I believed his reports, if for no other reason than that I am intimately familiar with how the goons operate, how they try to drive a person to desperation, insanity or even suicide. Put simply: Isolation, Alienation, Deprivation. Right out of the CIA Psy Ops manual for political prisoners, detainees or other targets best described as enemies of the state. And most sickening, these "enemies" seem, with increasing frequency, to be their own people, those individuals whose conscience has led them to do the right thing, no matter the consequences to themselves.

It took awhile to get to know him, since he seemed somewhat shy and almost as reclusive as myself. At first, our phone conversations were brief, as were the e-mails. But what impressed me most about Geral was his truthfulness and his humility. For instance, I never learned that he was an attorney, had been a prosecutor, a judge or a professor of Constitutional law until a mutual acquaintance told me.

Unlike most others being persecuted by the government, I have never heard him boast of his credentials or personal accomplishments. Rather, he seemed truly saddened, for their sake, that the government blackhearts could not see the light of truth. Geral once said to me that he could never have imagined, while he was growing up, or during his military service or even when he first started working for the FBI, that he would ever be in such a position. Where instead of fighting crime and criminals, he would be fighting against the criminals in his own government!

But when I began to understand the level of harassment and political persecution directed against him, I was truly horrified, as well as amazed that anyone could bear up under what he has had to endure. Geral does not believe in using violence to solve his problems, but rather his intellect. He calls his tormentors "Mental Dwarves", which pretty well sums up who and what they are. As I've told him many times, I don't think I could have the level of restraint he shows if I were accosted by goons on a regular basis, the way he has been. I might be tempted to punch their lights out! (In fact, on certain occasions I have done just that, but usually only if they touched me first.)

My reason for writing this article was that I wanted Geral's story to be told in a way that could give people a more comprehensive idea of his character; of who he is as a person; the nature of his considerable accomplishments and talents; his trials and tribulations in the fight for freedom; and his dedication to serving his country and humanity at large. Many people have visited his website. They have looked at the reports and documents and they have been impressed with his credentials, which are posted there for anyone who makes an effort to look. And yet, his modesty in downplaying his own background and accomplishments has been a source of frustration to me personally because he deserves a much broader recognition for his work than he has thus far received.

Geral Sosbee is a Champion of Liberty and the only former government agent I have ever known (and I've known quite a few) whose record in government service can hold up under close scrutiny with no black marks, no skeletons rattling in the closet. His case, as a persecuted whistleblower, deserves far greater scrutiny as well, both by those within government and by all freedom-loving people in the U.S.A and around the world.

Fortunately, I'm not the only one who appreciates Geral Sosbee and his work on behalf of Liberty. Below, some comments from friends of mine who have been keeping up with Geral's work and his excellent website.

Mr. Sosbee is a loyal friend and a formidable foe. I am familiar with some of his works. I congratulate you both.
Dr. Byron Weeks

Dear Barbara:
I am so pleased you have Geral as an ally....a good man who, from what I see, tells it exactly as it is.
Best Always,
Wayne Blanchard.

Accosted, Harassed & Insulted in Lawless New York

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

Isaiah 54:17

"We are not to simply bandage the wounds of victims beneath the wheels of injustice, we are to drive a spoke into the wheel itself."

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

"Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act."

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

Ephesians 5:11

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,
Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

Psalm 2:1-4

It has now been five long, brutal months since the “pandemic” psy op was unleashed on the world. The plotters at the apex of the conspiracy (for that is exactly what it is), who spawned the psy op may have been few, but those who are carrying out the orders of the operation are legion. At the top of the chain of command are the high-ranking government officials and Marxist political hacks, issuing constant propaganda designed to foment fear and panic via the co-opted, lunatic-leftist mainstream media.

But, as has been the case throughout history (consider Nazi Germany), these vile tyrants could not possibly have accomplished their purposes without the voluntary cooperation of the greater part of the populace. And therein lies the crux of the problem.

First, the plotters sow the seeds of fear, issuing dire warnings about a death-dealing plague, rolling in like a tsunami, about to wipe out all in its path.

Immediately following this, they conveniently have at the ready the pre-packaged, shrink-wrapped “solutions” to the contrived “problem”. Self-quarantine. Self-isolation. “Shelter in place”. “Social distancing”. Wear a mask to “protect yourself and others”. Become a prisoner in your own home. Be “safe” rather than risk the terrible consequences that could befall you.

And what if you should decide, after doing your own research, making your own observations, praying for the truth to be revealed to you by Almighty God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, and by using plain old common sense, that you will not allow yourself to be caught up in the panic, but rather, that you will act on the truth which has become so obvious to you?

You will be treated as a pariah. You will be ostracized. You will be accosted, harassed and insulted. By simply walking fearlessly down the street, in broad daylight, minding your own business, face not covered by a muzzle (like a fear-biting dog), you will have a target painted on your back.

I know this, because it happened to me.

Following are some true stories of my personal experience, here in the town where I live, Rhinebeck, NY.

I will begin with an incident at the CVS pharmacy, located in the village of Rhinebeck, where I have been shopping since I moved to the area in 2014. Though I don't know any of the employees personally, I recognize them, seeing them on a regular basis. Up until the panic began, they were helpful, and I was always treated politely.

Not anymore. I had gone into the store last week, and as is the policy I have adopted when entering a store, I had a mask, but kept it at half-mast, so that I could breathe. I do have a medical condition which makes a mask a health hazard to me. I have found that in most of the stores, I have been spared the harassment by the employees, if they just see the mask, even though it does not cover my face. I just want to be left in peace to make my purchases without stress or conflict.

At CVS, I was standing in line in front of the counter, when suddenly, one of the employees came aggressively striding across the area on my left, and rudely accosted me, pointing her finger at me and loudly saying: “Your mask is slipping! Your mask is slipping!”

I told her that no, it was not slipping; that I have a medical condition, and pulled out the medical exemption form I carry, which cites the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The woman did not even bother to read it, but raised her voice in increasing hysteria, “But you're spreading Covid germs! Covid germs!”

I answered that I was doing no such thing, that she did not know what the hell she was talking about, that I would not be arguing with her, that I just wanted to make my purchase and leave.

At this point, a mask-wearing customer turned his head as he was walking to the exit, and pointing his finger, yelled at me, “That's bullshit!”

I said, How dare you! You have no authority to make such a statement, so mind your own business and leave others to tend to theirs.

Meanwhile, as the other woman behind the cash register silently rang up my purchases, my tormentor continued her tirade, “I can't breathe! Now I can't breathe!”

I thought (but did not say), If you can't breathe, take off the damn mask, fool!

What I did say to the hysterical aggressor: This is the last time I will ever shop at this store. There is no excuse for this harassment, treating a customer so rudely and disrespectfully.

She answered, “Good! good! Now we don't have to worry! We can all be safe!”

I had become the center of a public spectacle, for simply asserting my rights.

But there's more to this story, involving this very woman, the CVS employee, whose name is Ruth Cummings.

The Starr Library in Rhinebeck is a place I would go several times a month, until, that is, it was closed down in March, due to the “pandemic”.

I periodically checked the library's website, in the hope that it would be reopening. To this day, no such luck. But one day, shortly after the incident at CVS, I saw an article posted:

Witness to History: Rhinebeck Neighbors During COVID-19
Chronicled by Amy Wu

And who should be one of those featured, but Ruth Cummings, whose photo I immediately recognized, though I had not known her name.

The article seems to have been removed from the library's website, but I searched and found it on Facebook.

Here is the section of the interview with Ruth Cummings.

Ruth Cummings is a cashier at CVS and Rhinebeck resident.
Here it’s busier in a different way, customers come in and they buy a lot but they come in less often, they buy everything at one time to cut down on the visits. I guess for me personally it’s [the time during the pandemic] like the holidays, it brings out the best and the worst of people--some people have been so grateful and so kind and that’s been really great. The local stores they have been so good to us and making sure we get food. You know we can’t always get away real fast and Bread Alone and Pete’s have been wonderful. We do some pizzas, falafels and did you know that the bagel place down the street is delivering by bicycle within three miles? On the other hand, I’m really surprised when people are dying and the governor is saying just go out for essentials, and that there are people I ring up for Crest white strips. I am thinking I get paid almost minimum wage and you could be giving me your virus and I could die, but you’re going to have white teeth. They came just for Crest white strips. That’s the negative side of this when people come in and they say `oh I think I’ll go over to the CVS and get nail polish and I think `no stay home and listen to the governor.’ I guess I was just surprised at how many people didn’t take things seriously, including myself initially but then there’s a certain point when you know this is the real deal and you better not worry if our kids get every single Easter candy, I mean it’s good to learn hard times right? That’s when we grow.”

"I think 'no stay home and listen to the governor."

So, like many others, Ruth Cummings has swallowed the propaganda, hook, line and sinker. She is listening to the governor, Andrew Cuomo, who has no authority to issue such “mandates”.

She is “just following orders”, the same old story as in Nazi Germany. What's more, she thinks she has the right to become an enforcer of the unlawful edicts, when she has no authority whatsoever, as a cashier in a store, to say one word to any customer, much less treat them like criminals and lepers.

"On the other hand, I’m really surprised when people are dying and the governor is saying just go out for essentials, and that there are people I ring up for Crest white strips. I am thinking I get paid almost minimum wage and you could be giving me your virus and I could die, but you’re going to have white teeth."

So now, Ruth Cummings, in her vast ignorance, is accusing people of endangering her life (just as she did to me), and deciding that she has become the arbiter of what other people “should” and “should not” be buying. This is the behavior of an aggressive busybody, plain and simple. This is the very mentality which the leftist lunatics have plotted, designed to inculcate the public to become citizen snoops, snitches and mouthpieces for the government's propaganda.

Shame on you, Ruth Cummings. I hope your employers at CVS will read this, and recognize that such ill-mannered and aggressive behavior will only discourage customers from giving CVS their business. I, for one, will be shopping elsewhere.

The next story is about a restaurant here in town, one that used to be my favorite – but which I will never visit again.

Due to the panic, all the restaurants in my local area have been closed, since mid-March. In June, some have reopened, but only to serve lunch or dinner outdoors. Generally, I don't like outdoor seating, mostly because of my intolerance to heat, and the lack of privacy, being out on a public sidewalk or parking lot.

When a relative from out of state came to visit last month, we welcomed the opportunity to have dinner at the restaurant, since it had been closed all these months. The last time I had been out to a restaurant was on my birthday, March 12, just before everything was shut down.

As we walked to the entrance to the dining area, now from the street outside, there was a woman posted at the gate to greet customers. She told us we had to wear masks upon entering the area, in order to be seated, but that the masks could be removed when we sat down at the table. I had with me the mask exemption form, which I showed the woman. It was clear she had never seen such a thing before. She said she had to show it to the manager, who then told us we would have to be seated in a larger section, under a tent in the parking lot, right next to the street, unless we wore masks to be escorted to the more desirable area next to the building.

I said we did not want to sit in the parking lot section, so okay, I would put on a mask for the walk to the table, since it was less than twenty feet from the entrance to the table.

We sat down, had dinner, which we enjoyed, and our server was very attentive, though she herself complained about the difficulty caused by the mask, while working in the heat, which was by evening, still in the upper 80s.

The trouble came as we were leaving. My relative got up and walked the short distance toward the exit, not wearing a mask. I watched in consternation, as the owner of the restaurant stood in front of him, actually trying to block his way, shouting loudly at him, for not wearing a mask. He yelled, “You are ruining it for everybody!” My relative said, God bless you, and walked around him to the exit, while the crazed man shouted, “You're not welcome here!” To which my relative replied, Call the police.

I walked out behind my relative, with no mask, to the stares of the patrons, but no one said a word to me. It was clear that because I dared to show the exemption form, we were targeted for harassment from the owner, who made a public spectacle of himself over an idiotic (and lawless) edict issued by His Majesty, Andrew Cuomo, who fancies himself the Most High Monarch, the Lord over all New York.

I'm sure that there were at least a few people who witnessed this incident, who saw the truth. For those who did, I hope it caused them to think. Maybe they too will have had enough of the nonsense, and will stand up and say so.

Then, there were some of the other stores in my local area, where I have been shopping for years. One is a liquor store where I go for wine. One day last week I was there, standing at the counter, when the man said to me, “I don't mean to be rude, but you have to cover your face.” I responded by showing him the mask exemption form, which he apparently did not consider to be valid. So I said, Please just allow me to make this purchase and leave. If that is your policy, I will shop elsewhere in the future. So now, another place I will not give my business. (And by the way, hung on a post of the steps leading up to the door of this store was a wooden heart, proclaiming BLACK LIVES MATTER! I can only guess that my life, not being black, matters not at all.)

A few days later, I went to another store, in the next town, Hyde Park, where I have also been shopping for years. The prices are lower, but the driving distance often keeps me from shopping there. I was shocked, as for the first time ever, I entered the store and a clerk approached me and seeing my half-mast mask, said, You can't come in without covering your face. I showed her the exemption form, but was told, Sorry, but no exceptions. I asked if she would get me a bottle of wine of a certain brand, and if she would take my money, pay for it, and bring it out to me. She agreed, being polite, and I went on my way. But I won't be shopping there anymore.

So what places are left, where I can go? Where can I be treated with respect, and have my patronage appreciated?

The supermarket has a sign on the door: 


The library is closed.

In front of the hospital there is a large billboard:


Get through this? There is not a soul I know of with whose assistance I can “get through this” – not without paying a price I am not willing to pay: Guilt trips. Restrictions. Idiotic rules and regulations. Psychobabble about “staying safe” and complying with Governor Cuomo's Communist Manifesto.

The churches have been closed for months, and the ones who have opened are requiring “social distancing” and masks. No Holy Eucharist. No fellowship. No hugs allowed. Why bother? I can read my Bible at home, which I do every day. But I do miss the fellowship with my brothers and sisters in Christ. Now, that is limited to phone calls with people who live far away.

While driving, I see a signboard on one church, where I know some of the people, which proclaims:


Has everyone gone insane?

This is a hideous psy op, replete with massive social engineering, hell-bent on the demoralization, destabilization and ultimately, destruction, of all we hold sacred in this country.

I believe, with all my heart, that it is a moral and spiritual imperative, for anyone who actually DOES CARE, and wants to show it, to stand up boldly and denounce this utter lunacy and tyranny, so help us, God.

MONSTROUS TYRANNY: Psy War & Social Engineering

Barbara Hartwell, CIA Whistleblower on United Nations & Communism Vs USA & Sovereignty on Ramola D Reports


This podcast, hosted by my friend, Ramola D, was heavily sabotaged. We first tried to record on Skype, only to find out that the hackers had distorted the video of Ramola, and reversed the image from my website, which she tried to share on the screen.

We tried again the next day, using a different system. Unfortunately, this time the sound was tampered with, so that my voice was distorted, and much too loud, while Ramola's voice was diminished. Ramola had to edit the podcast as best she could, before posting it last night.

However, despite the technical interference, I hope that the the viewers/listeners can overlook the poor quality and focus on the content.

Thank you for your consideration.

Informative conversation with CIA Whistleblower Barbara Hartwell who delineates the globalist and communist aims, agenda and activities of the United Nations, in sharp contrast to the God-Given rights and freedoms protected and guaranteed by the United States Constitution, the persecution of Christianity versus the pursuit of Luciferianism in the UN, and the current ongoing tug-of-war of tyranny in this age of Covid's plandemic spread.
