Statement Excerpts:

I targeted information security firms because they work in secret to protect government and corporate interests at the expense of individual rights, undermining and discrediting activists, journalists and other truth seekers, and spreading disinformation.

As a result of the Stratfor hack, some of the dangers of the unregulated private intelligence industry are now known. It has been revealed through Wikileaks and other journalists around the world that Stratfor maintained a worldwide network of informants that they used to engage in intrusive and possibly illegal surveillance activities on behalf of large multinational corporations.

Could I have achieved the same goals through legal means? I have tried everything from voting petitions to peaceful protest and have found that those in power do not want the truth to be exposed. When we speak truth to power we are ignored at best and brutally suppressed at worst. We are confronting a power structure that does not respect its own system of checks and balances, never mind the rights of it’s own citizens or the international community.

The government celebrates my conviction and imprisonment, hoping that it will close the door on the full story. I took responsibility for my actions, by pleading guilty, but when will the government be made to answer for its crimes?

The U.S. hypes the threat of hackers in order to justify the multi billion dollar cyber security industrial complex, but it is also responsible for the same conduct it aggressively prosecutes and claims to work to prevent. The hypocrisy of “law and order” and the injustices caused by capitalism cannot be cured by institutional reform but through civil disobedience and direct action. Yes I broke the law, but I believe that sometimes laws must be broken in order to make room for change.

In the immortal word of Frederick Douglas,“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”

In February, a team of Anonymous hackers revealed a massive conspiracy on the part of Bank of America, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Hunton & Williams law firm, and three intelligence contracting companies to harass, monitor, and discredit left-wing groups, the journalist Glenn Greenwald, Wikileaks, and other targets. Beyond the plot itself, these revelations signaled a growing and dangerous dynamic whereby powerful institutions have sought to develop and implement the most comprehensive disinformation apparatus in history - one that, as in the past, will be pointed directly at those who seek a change in the status quo.

“Judge Loretta Preska’s impartiality is compromised by her husband’s involvement with Stratfor and a clear prejudice against Hammond exists, as evidenced by her statements … Without justice being freely, fully and impartially administered, neither our persons, nor our rights nor our property, can be protected,” the Anonymous release noted.

___Ralph Nader is important to raise the pressing question: Does the future of our country benefit from Hillary, another Clinton, another politician almost indistinguishable from Barack Obama’s militaristic, corporatist policies garnished by big money donors from Wall Street and other plutocratic canyons?

There is no doubt the Clintons are syrupy political charmers, beguiling many naïve Democrats who have long been vulnerable to a practiced set of comforting words or phrases camouflaging contrary deeds.

Everybody knows that Hillary is for women, children and education. She says so every day. But Democrats and others can’t get the Clintons even to support a $10.50 federal minimum wage that would almost equal the 1968 minimum wage, inflation-adjusted, and would raise the wages of 30 million workers mired in the gap between the present minimum wage of $7.25 and $10.50 an hour. It just so happens that almost two-thirds of these Americans are women, many of them single moms struggling to support their impoverished children. Nearly a million of these workers labor for Walmart, on whose Board of Directors Hillary Clinton once sat. WORDS HIDE THE DEEDS.

WAR COMES HOME: Welcome to Post-Constitution America
By Peter Van Buren

....Consider, for instance, the rise of the warrior cop, of increasingly up-armored police departments across the country often filled with former military personnel encouraged to use the sort of rough tactics they once wielded in combat zones. Supporting them are the kinds of weaponry that once would have been inconceivable in police departments, including armored vehicles, typically bought with Department of Homeland Security grants. Recently, the director of the FBI informed a Senate committee that the Bureau was deploying its first drones over the United States. Meanwhile, Customs and Border Protection, part of the Department of Homeland Security and already flying an expanding fleet of Predator drones, the very ones used in America’s war zones, is eager to arm them with “non-lethal” weaponry to “immobilize targets of interest.”

Above all, surveillance technology has been coming home from our distant war zones. The National Security Agency (NSA), for instance, pioneered the use of cell phones to track potential enemy movements in Iraq and Afghanistan. The NSA did this in one of several ways. With the aim of remotely turning on cell phones as audio monitoring or GPS devices, rogue signals could be sent out through an existing network, or NSA software could be implanted on phones disguised as downloads of porn or games.

"TI's, whether you realize it or not, you actually have the power to control your perps. Whenever these satanic zombies go out of their way to follow you around, and coordinate your whereabouts only to sensitize and harass you: your simple presence is an automatic trigger for these lunatics already. Know that these demonically possessed sentinels spend a vast amount of money time and energy just to organize their game. The more you enjoy your freedom to do and go wherever you please, the harder they have to work for your sanity. The more frequent and unpredictable your whereabouts are, the more expensive and costly you are to them. Gandhi and MLK crushed their enemies not with violence, but with sheer will and DEFIANCE. TI's, so what ever you do, never ever surrender to these criminals. Never ever let them control you and your life with their illegal secret policing methods, And never ever let them take away your dignity and basic human rights. Fight to the death. You already won this battle if you choose to enjoy your life no matter what. This is their problem NOT YOURS. Your everyday presence is their prison, and your enjoyment in life is a constant reminder that they will never win. They are slaves to your happiness and success. Let them bleed dry from stupidity, and drown and rot in their own hateful hell. Let them GAG to see you everyday HAPPY and FREE. Make them work even harder for NOTHING. Your UNBREAKABLE spirit they can never take."

___Gang Stalking (Cointelpro 2.0)

The purposes of spreading lies are:
1. To incite hatred for the target in the community and to enlist the help of as many community members as possible (and to cover illegal activities).
2. To neutralize the target so his political viewpoints are not taken seriously, has no influence, and doesn’t become a respectable member of that community.
3. To keep the community-at-large in fear & discomfort so they are on the lookout for a terrorist, criminal, etc. This is one way in which communities are controlled. Instead of focusing on real problems like the poor economy, the moral decline of the country, or excessive government spending, community members are artificially encouraged to take out their anger on the “terrorist or pedophile” living on the other side of town. With 1 million targets on the watch-list, I believe every community has several “terrorists” that divert the communities’ attention from real issues to manufactured threats. This is modern day scapegoating at its finest.
4. To control the community informants. Members of the network are kept focused on non-existent internal threats. And I now believe that a deeper form of control is taking place. Community members may avoid outspoken political expressions or other activities (i.e. challenging somebody with influence within the community) for fear of being placed on a watch-list.
5. To dehumanize the targets so that harassment can be performed without any remorse. For ex.“He/she deserves it.” Community members will try to force undesirables out of their community. Back in the early days of this country, it was called “running somebody out of town.”

.....I believe the number of targets expanded so immensely after 9/11, that they were forced to pull an ever increasing number of locals into stalking – many of whom can’t be trained very well. In another words, the responsibility of daily, routine surveillance has been shifted from the alphabet soup agencies to the communities. And people that have never had a job in their lives are getting in on the act.

I have spent a fair amount of time profiling the gangstalkers and I believe that I am in a unique position to answer the question of ‘who are they?’ I have identified many specific individuals (legally with public resources). Importantly, targets may fail to realize the vast amount of public information that is at their disposal.

I have identified state, county, and federal government workers (usually low paying workers) through license plate identification. Involved are school teachers, policemen, firemen, etc. This leads me to conclude that certain government workers may also be supplementing their meager incomes through this stalking protocol. Ex-military personal have also been identified.

Some have full-time, real jobs and are not available for surveillance during the day. Also involved are construction workers, business owners, corporate employees, etc. To my great surprise, I have also identified a church choir director. In another words, stalkers can be almost anybody in your community. Some I have learned, have come from different locations; presumably to be part of the stalking program.

".....Besides, the government to which we're ceding these broad new powers is a democracy, overseen by real, live Americans. And it's hard to imagine American government officials abusing their powers – or at least, it would be, had such officials not already abused similar but more limited powers through repeated campaigns of disinformation, intimidation and airtight crimes directed at the American public over the last five decades.

Cointelpro, Operation Mockingbird, Ultra and Chaos are among the now-acknowledged CIA, FBI and NSA programs by which those agencies managed to subvert American democracy with impunity.

Supporters of mass surveillance conducted under the very same agencies have yet to address how such abuses can be insured against in the context of powers far greater than anything J Edgar Hoover could command.

Many have never heard of these programs; the sort of people who trust states with secret authority tend not Many have never heard of these programs; the sort of people who trust states with secret authority tend not to know what such things have led to in the recent past. Those who do know of such things may perhaps contend that these practices would never be repeated today.

But it was just two years ago that the late Michael Hastings revealed that US army officials in Afghanistan were conducting psy-ops against visiting US senators in order to sway them towards continued funding for that unsuccessful war. If military and intelligence officials have so little respect for the civilian leadership, one can guess how they feel about mere civilians.

.....This, then, is the environment in which public officials and Beltway insiders like Friedman are asking us to trust the intelligence community and its private partner firms with increasing power over information. It's an age in which even the limited rules in place can be broken with impunity by the powerful – even as journalists and activists who cross them are targeted for destruction by state-corporate alliances armed with increasingly sophisticated cyber weapons, propaganda techniques and surveillance authority."

This is the world we accept if we continue to avert our eyes. And it promises to get much worse.

CONGRESSIONAL DIRECTIVE: Keep 34,000 Detention Beds Filled

Imagine your city council telling the police department how many people it had to keep in jail each night.

That's effectively what Congress has told U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement with a policy known as the "detention bed mandate." The mandate calls for filling 34,000 beds in some 250 facilities across the country, per day, with immigrant detainees.

Add up all the nation's detention centers and that's more than $2 billion a year.

The detention bed mandate, which began in 2009, is just part of the massive increase in enforcement-only immigration policies over the last two decades. The last time Congress passed a broad immigration law dealing with something other than enforcement — such as overhauling visa or guest worker policies — was 1986.

___SWAT Team Exercise

A SWAT training exercise mounted by the Broward Sheriff’s Office, U.S. Customs & Border Protection, and the FBI portrayed “native born” Americans carrying out a terrorist attack on Port Everglades, part of the accelerating demonization of American citizens as domestic extremists.

The whole spectacle was basically an opportunity for the Fort Lauderdale Police SWAT team to show off its arsenal of militarized gear, including “Two Bears -- massive armored vehicles with turrets for automatic weapons fire -- a beefed up front-end loader that lifted an overturned car like a toy and Hummers packed with serious firepower.”

As we have documented, the trend of the federal government portraying American citizens as terrorists in both training exercises and promotional material has gone hand in hand with the increasing militarization of law enforcement.

Last month, former Marine Corps Colonel Peter Martino, who was stationed in Fallujah and trained Iraqi soldiers, warned that the Department of Homeland Security is working with law enforcement to build a "domestic army," because the federal government is “afraid of its own citizens.”

___You're A "Terrorist"

The Department of Homeland Security and police forces label anyone who they disagree with – or who disagrees with government policies – as “terrorists”.

Anyone who disagrees with the “acceptable” way of looking at things is a terrorist.

How is this different from Stalin or Mao’s use of labels such as “enemy of the state”?

For example, the following is considered terrorism or suspected terrorism in modern America:

*Protesting anything
*Questioning war (even though war reduces our national security; and see this)
*Criticizing the government’s targeting of innocent civilians with drones (although killing innocent civilians with drones is one of the main things which increases terrorism. And see this)
*Asking questions about pollution (even at a public Congressional hearing?)
*Liking online privacy
*Paying cash at an Internet cafe
*Asking questions about Wall Street shenanigans
*Supporting Ron Paul or being a libertarian
*Being anti-tax, anti-regulation or for the gold standard
*Holding gold
*Creating alternative currencies
*Stocking up on more than 7 days of food
*Investigating factory farming
(There's more...)

Business owners who spot patrons engaging in these types of activities (shielding computer screens from strangers) are encouraged to call the FBI’s Joint Regional Intelligence Center (JRIC), after first gathering information on license plates, names, ethnicity, and languages spoken.

The CAT program again underscores how federal authorities are empowering poorly trained citizens to become terrorist hunters, stoking fears that America is sinking deeper into a Stasi-style informant society.

Gang Stalking
___Cointelpro 2.0

It has been alleged that Red Squad style social control activity has reemerged as what is described as “gang stalking.” A former high ranking FBI agent, Ted Gunderson, submitted an affidavit[4] on the issue to a Freedom of Information Act request. The case, No. 10-00169,[5] is pending. Additionally, a private investigator, David Lawson, wrote a book about his investigation into these groups.[6] There are also several victim’s websites and news stories [7][8] making similar accusations. All sources believe these groups are citizen based, but some claim they are sanctioned by elements within the U.S. Government.

___Says NSA's Defenders

“VICTIMS of the fearsome Communist East German secret police say: NOT SO FAST” to comparisons of National Security Agency spying with the Cold-War era Stasi, the Post reports.

The spy agency for the communist “German Democratic Republic” employed over a quarter of a million East Germans — nearly 1 in 50 — as agents or informants.

Anyone “who dared criticize their government”— even in private —“could wind up disappearing into its penal system for years.”

We don’t need to invoke the Stasi to understand the dangers of the NSA’s dragnet data collection. We can look to our own Cold War history, when the political class built files on thousands of peaceful dissenters, swept up millions of Americans’ private communications and used the information gathered to amass and maintain power.

And there’s a reason J. Edgar Hoover was able to run the FBI virtually unchecked for nearly four decades. As Richard Nixon put it:“Hoover’s got files on everybody, g-----n it!” Hoover was “a master blackmailer,” according to his former top lieutenant, William Sullivan.

In the bad old days, to plug leaks, blackmail congressmen and control dissenters, federal snoops had to gather content and metadata the old-fashioned way, through informants, stakeouts, break-ins and old-school wiretaps.

Chris Hedges was in the federal court for Jeremy Hammond’s sentencing, and wrote an account of it for truthdig. Here are some key passages whose relevance to gang stalking are obvious. Emphasis added.

“The sentence was one of the longest in U.S. history for hacking and the maximum the judge could impose under a plea agreement in the case. It was wildly disproportionate to the crime—an act of nonviolent civil disobedience that championed the public good by exposing abuses of power by the government and a security firm. But the excessive sentence was the point. The CORPORATE STATE, RAPIDLY LOSING CREDIBILITY AND LEGITIMACY, IS LASHING OUT LIKE A WOUNDED ANIMAL. It is frightened. It feels the heat from a rising flame of revolt. It is especially afraid of those such as Hammond who have the technical skills to break down electronic walls and expose the corrupt workings of power.”

“[The judge simply accepted] the frightening fact that intelligence agencies now work on behalf of corporations as well as the state.”

When Hedges interviewed Hammond last month at the jail where he was being held, Hammond gave his view of America’s corrupt law enforcement agencies:“THE BOOT BOYS OF THE 1 PERCENT, PAID TO PROTECT THE RICH AND POWERFUL.”

Gang Stalking
___by John B. Lopes - Licensed Private Detective

Gang stalking (or “organized stalking”)
involves employing techniques of psychological
warfare in a methodical and
well-orchestrated manner. Often, victims
become the target of ridicule by
friends and family because the occurrences
are so hard to believe. These
tactics are intended to weaken the target
to the point of physical and psychological
collapse. Now that the number
of targets has increased to the
point where victims can network with
one another, they find out that THE SAME TACTICS ARE BEING USED EVERYWHERE.

The reasons why the stalkers engage in
the activity may have little or nothing
to do with why the person was targeted
in the first place. It is not inconceivable
that the participants don’t know
why the person has been targeted, or
things are clear: This is an addictive
behavior as well as A FORM OF ENTERTAINMENT for the stalkers. From descriptions
of victims who have come face to
like the feeling of being “in control.”

We met three people Thursday who are victims of adult bulling or as they refer to it, organized stalking. Two of them are from Pennsylvania, but were in the area for their support group, which helps them get through their daily struggles of people constantly putting them down.

"We feel this is a great abuse going on in the world, not just in out country but across the world. We feel that this is a global problem," said John, Victim.

John and Terry are friends from Pennsylvania who have been living in fear for years.

"I was inundated with harassment, just absolutely inundated with it. I would be told what I did that day, what I did the day before, where I went what I had to eat, what I was wearing currently, and where I was sitting in my apartment," said Terry.

___Former Intelligence Agents Being Used As Spies

Yesterday’s broadcast of Democracy Now!(linked below) reported that major U.S. corporations are using spies – including former CIA, NSA, and FBI agents – to conduct surveillance (sometimes illegally) of non-profit organizations engaged in advocacy for causes such as anti-war policy, consumer rights, environmentalism, animal rights, and arms control.

Corporations engaging in this kind of espionage include Wal-Mart, Monsanto, Bank of America, Dow Chemical, Kraft, Coca-Cola, Chevron, Burger King, McDonald’s, Shell, BP, and others – as well as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
