RADCHICK/Radiation Research and Mitigation: NWO-Full Speed Ahead

VHF_UHF_LP-antenna1Re-blogged, with many thanks, from RADCHICK, Radiation Research and Mitigation, a highly informative blog run by ophthalmic photographer and nuclear radiation researcher, Cristina “Radchick” Consolo. A conversation between Professor Darrell Hamamoto of Asian-American Studies at UC Davis and Dr. Leuren Moret, on many subjects, including surveillance issues and technologies at the University of California, Davis, the curious circumstance of an antenna technology expert, Linda Katehi, with old Illuminati bloodline connections brought in as Chancellor of UC Davis, the widespread use of ELFs/ULFs in mind-control, the Jesuit and Skull & Bones connections, and the visible presence of the New World Order on the UC Davis campus.

Adding yet another layer of information to the recent story, reported here, of high radiation levels detected in a UC, Berkeley student housing unit, and attributed by staff there to Government and Law Enforcement satellite technology, Leuren Moret speaks also about how Katehi’s 19 antenna patents have been put to use.  “UCD and other UC campuses have increasingly been fitted with many complex antennas and antenna networks since Urban Shield. Many of the technologies are related to Katehi’s 19 patents. UC has become an EMF prison from the rooftops of the campus to the cell phones of the students, smart meters on buildings, and hidden antennas on cars.”

She also speaks of an integrated, hard-wired surveillance technology network on campuses connected to multiple HAARP arrays permitting the transmission of low-frequency waves on carrier waves, conveying mind-control frequencies of suicide, among other EMF waveforms associated with specific feelings or moods, which Professor Hamamoto corroborates from his long-term observation of UC Davis students. She reports a  huge spy network on campus, students being trained in group think, and “now being trained to overthrow their own governments.” Additionally, she discusses a rollout of Satanism on campuses nationwide since Fall 2015.

Especially enlightening in its exposure of the NWO takeover of University campuses, and in its insights into how secret societies in Intelligence and military departments are running techno-programs of destruction today, all across the country. Information that is coming of age today, as the “conspiracy theory” labels of yore fall away, here inside the heart of academe.

“We are talking about a system which is in serious need of investigation, by prying off the barnacles that are slowing down the ship…”

~ Professor Darrell Hamamoto, PhD 

On May 7th of 2016, an extraordinary conversation took place between Professor Darrell Hamamoto and Nuke Lab Whistle-Blower Leuren Moret, in the Asian Studies Department at UC Davis. This interview is astounding in its detail, scope, and massive implications. The model discussed, focused primarily on the faculty appointments at UC Davis and the current scandals playing out there, reveals quite vividly the darker underlying framework being used throughout colleges in the United States, including a broad network of surveillance – which is now fully integrated. By hiding our ‘true history’ and controlling the information shared through Universities and higher education, the Powers That Be are assuring the indoctrination of our future generation into complete acceptance of the New World Order Agenda. The process has been gradual. But it is apparent, if you know who, where, and what to look for.

Surveillance, Satanism, NWO controls such as Frequency Manipulation, Bloodlines and the CFR, the Heroin Epidemic, Deliberate Poisoning of the Food Supply, Radiation Sickness from Nuclear Pollution, and even the Wigner Effect – are also key components of this amazing and insightful interview.

Professor Hamamoto also discusses the repercussions of asking questions about his own institution, and both he and Leuren Moret offer hope in their candid exchange of ideas and information throughout their discussion.

Health-Damaging Radiation Levels in UC Berkeley’s Family Student Housing Officially Attributed to “Law Enforcement & Government Satellite Technology” With No Further Investigation

by Ramola D, with Tracy/The Everyday Concerned Citizen/Posted 8/17/2016

Ongoing and extremely concerning radiation levels recently detected in a University Village Albany apartment at the University of California (UC), Berkeley campus in Alameda County, California were reported to Housing and Environmental Health and Safety staff at UC Berkeley. The University claims however there are no sources of such radiation on campus, and attributes continuous radio frequency exposure to “Law Enforcement & Government Satellite Technology.”

UC Berkeley’s Office of Environment, Health, & Safety (EH&S) whose mission statement aims to provide “guidance and services to the campus community that promote health, safety, and environmental stewardship,” met on August 5 with Berkeley housing resident Tracy (last name withheld for privacy) who made the report to Housing staff.

Eddie Ciprazo, an EH&S Laser Safety Officer, accompanied by a second, unidentified staff-member, and Administrative Housing Manager Joonie Kim, “outright refused” to test the inside of Tracy’s University Village apartment for health-harming electromagnetic pollution that she had detected and documented earlier using her own handheld RF (Radio Frequency) counting equipment.

spysatellite1Tracy reports:

“Interestingly enough, Eddie Ciprazo was quick to blame possible RF over-exposure on law enforcement, government, and satellite technology, which he denied any part of. So, he did not feel that the university is personally responsible for the damages caused to our health.”

Additionally, although Eddie Ciprazo is listed on the Berkeley website as having “over 25 years of experience in ionizing radiation, non-ionizing radiation and laser safety,” and is a prominent Bay Area Laser Safety Officer who trains and audits users on laser safety with sophisticated University equipment, Tracy reports that “he also refused to tell me the state and federal guidelines for RF exposure” as she was previously promised via email by Housing Manager Joonie Kim.

“When I asked why, he shrugged me off and said he did not have the equipment to measure the level of exposure in my apartment.”

Radiation Bombardment From Below and Above University Apartment

Berkeleyhousing1

University Housing, Albany/UC Berkeley website

The RF measurements Tracy has made have yielded information on both directional frequencies coming into her home and located frequency-emitting devices seemingly incorporated into smoke alarm detectors and other fixtures inside her apartment. She says she has experienced radiation bombardment directionally from the apartment below as well as from above the top floor of the apartment building, whether from the attic, rooftop, or beyond, she does not know.

Detection of Ultra High Frequency Pulsing Microwave Radiation and Radio-Frequency Emitting Devices Inside Apartment

Inside the University apartment, Tracy has used a portable, hand-held radio frequency detector and a radio frequency counter, an ACECO SC-1 SMART RF Counter, calibrated to measure frequencies in the 30 Megahertz (MHz) to 2.8 Gigahertz (GHz) range, and a Bunker Hill Security Wireless RF/WiFi Detector, calibrated to measure frequencies in the 20 MHz to 3 GHz range.

SMART RF COUNTER1

ACECO RF Counter Reading

Using the ACECO RF Counter, Tracy has picked up radiation measurements in the 100-300 MHz range, which is Very High Frequency (VHF), and in the 300-500 MHz range, which is Ultra High Frequency (UHF).

I have measured frequencies in the 100-300 MHz range on my body, and I have also measured rapidly fluctuating frequencies in the 100-500 MHz range inside the unit, with a single sample reading of 333.705 MHz on my bed where I sleep at night. That means that there are multiple frequencies in multiple bandwidths contributing to the overall electromagnetic smog inside my apartment.”

Bunker1

Bunker Hill RF/WiFi Detector

In addition, while scanning the apartment with the Bunker Hill Wireless RF/Wifi detector which locates wireless cameras, listening devices, and other frequency-emitting devices, indicating RF emitter presence with an audible beeping sound, Tracy has noticed the RF sensing alarm being activated at multiple locations inside and outside of her home, despite unplugging her wireless router and taking the battery out of her cell phone.

There were no other known sources of wireless RF or WiFi. Specific locations include fire alarm devices, sprinkler devices, ceiling light fixtures, door frames, window frames, bathroom mirror, bathroom faucets, bathroom towel racks, some but not all light switches and electrical outlets…. Some of my own furniture also appears to be bugged: table lamps, clock radio, even my loveseat couch.”

The implications here are that for some unknown reason, the apartment has been furnished with radio-transmitting devices, some possibly functioning as video and audio surveillance, and others, she speculates, as motion detectors to trace movement around the apartment.

Tracy definitely feels like her privacy has been compromised. What could be the purpose of such intimate covert surveillance?

Health-Damaging Effects of Microwave Radiation Experienced in Apartment

Tracy, a UC alumna with a Biology degree, is a family caretaker for her daughter, a currently- enrolled UC Berkeley student who has been diagnosed with a disabling gastro-intestinal health condition requiring a doctor-prescribed diet. On a disability accommodation provided by the University for her daughter, Tracy moved into the apartment in November 2015 and continues to reside there up to the present date–August 2016–so she can help take care of her daughter’s medical needs.

Microwave RadiationTracy reports that ever since she moved in, she herself has experienced continuous, health-damaging exposure to low-intensity electromagnetic radiation, which she has measured and which she points out is also impacting negatively on her daughter’s sensitive health:

I’m getting radiated with microwaves, which seem to be rising up from the floor of my apartment. It causes a thermal sensation that stimulates my nerves and burns my feet! Sometimes I can feel it all the way up to my waist. When I lie down in bed at night, it envelops my entire body… Sometimes it is on very low (hardly detectible) and other times it is on full blast (anyone can feel it).”

A biomedical scientist with research experience in Neurophysiology and post-baccalaureate pre-medical training in Pediatric Orthopedics, Tracy has a high degree of parental concern for the health and well being of her daughter as well as herself. Keen to scientifically measure and record incoming frequencies inside the University apartment while researching the bio-effects of electromagnetic radiation on human health, she reports a disturbing spectrum of health damages that she herself has experienced.

My health symptoms include headache, pain, itching, swelling, inflammation, thyroid disease, immune disorder, tinnitus, blurred vision, hair loss, pins ‘n’ needles tingling and vibrational sensations in my nerves, and thermal heat burning and pain on my skin (especially on the bottom of my feet). I feel like I am being radiated from the downstairs unit on a daily basis with increased exposure at night (10:00 PM to 6:00 AM)”.

Sometimes, I also get hit with pulsed microwave frequencies coming from above in the early morning hours (3:00 to 5:00 AM), or it could last until about 2 PM the following day. On these really bad days, I usually wake up late with extreme dehydration, migraine headache, blurred vision, eye infections, nausea, and vomiting yellow acid on an empty stomach.”

Documented Health-Damaging Effects of Microwave Radiation

Health hazards and bio-effects of exposure to microwave and other radio-frequency radiation have been extensively researched and documented over the past couple decades.

Yet it is only now these are coming into public view, since telecommunications companies who stand to benefit from increased sales of cell phones, cell antennas, and wireless communications in general, along with their affiliate entities, including government bodies such as the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), as reported elsewhere online, have consistently sought to suppress awareness on this subject. The FCC’s troubling stance toward public health was recently exposed, for instance, in the FCC Commissioner’s non-response to a reporter questioning the carcinogenic effects of radiation at the July 14 5-G rollout in Washington, DC.

Nevertheless, the news from scientists is in, and it is not good. Studies examining exposure to both thermal and non-thermal radiation in the electromagnetic spectrum have documented high degrees of bio-damage, including molecular and cellular injury.

For instance, the BioInitiative 2012 Report from an international group of scientists specialized in BioElectromagnetics, examining over 1800 studies, concludes:

BIOEFFECTS ARE CLEARLY ESTABLISHED

Bioeffects are clearly established and occur at very low levels of exposure to electromagnetic fields and radiofrequency radiation. Bioeffects can occur in the first few minutes at levels associated with cell and cordless phone use. Bioeffects can also occur from just minutes of exposure to mobile phone masts (cell towers), WI-FI, and wireless utility ‘smart’ meters that produce whole-body exposure. Chronic base station level exposures can result in illness.

BIOEFFECTS WITH CHRONIC EXPOSURES CAN REASONABLY BE PRESUMED TO RESULT IN ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS

Many of these bioeffects can reasonably be presumed to result in adverse health effects if the exposures are prolonged or chronic. This is because they interfere with normal body processes (disrupt homeostasis), prevent the body from healing damaged DNA, produce immune system imbalances, metabolic disruption, and lower resilience to disease across multiple pathways. Essential body processes can eventually be disabled by incessant external stresses (from system-wide electrophysiological interference) and lead to pervasive impairment of metabolic and reproductive functions.”

*The BioInitiative 2012 Report has been prepared by 29 authors from ten countries*, ten holding medical degrees (MDs), 21 PhDs, and three MsC, MA or MPHs. Among the authors are three former presidents of the Bioelectromagnetics Society, and five full members of BEMS. One distinguished author is the Chair of the Russian National Committee on Non-Ionizing Radiation. Another is a Senior Advisor to the European Environmental Agency. Full titles and affiliations of authors is in Section 25 – List of Participants.”

The full report can be found online here.

Giving lie to the oft-cited plaint (by telecommunications companies) that studies on radiation exposure do not prove effects other than thermal effects, a bibliography of documents examining bio-effects by Z. R. Glaser, published in 1972, and listed on Dr. Magda Havas’ website, lists more than 2000 documents “on the biological responses to radio frequency and microwave radiation”.

The author classified the biological effects, into 17 categories…These categories include heating (thermal effects); changes in physiologic function; alterations of the central, autonomic and peripheral nervous systems; psychological disorders; behavioral changes (animal studies); blood and vascular disorders; enzyme and other biochemical changes; metabolic, gastro-intestinal, and hormonal disorders; histological changes; genetic and chromosomal effects; the pearl-change effect (related to orientation in bacteria and animals); and a miscellaneous group of symptoms that didn’t fit into the above categories.”

Pulsed microwave radiation has been found to be more dangerous than continuous wave radiation. Cell phones, smart meters, and WiFi routers use pulsed microwave radiation.

Information on the dangers to human health of all kinds of EMF radiation may be found online at various sites, including the websites and YouTube videos of talks by Dr. Magda Havas, Dr. Devra Davis, Camilla Rees, and Dr. Martin Blank. Important information in this area includes the study by Martin Blank and Reba Goodman, DNA is a Fractal Antenna in Electromagnetic Fields, a talk by Camilla Rees on The Biological Effects of Electromagnetic Radiation on Human Health, and one by Dr. Magda Havas on The Truth About Wired and Wireless Technologies.

University of California, Berkeley Response

In communications with the Environment Health and Safety office, Tracy has offered this clear-cut description of microwave radiation from Wikipedia, along with a Frequency Allocation table from the FCC to illustrate the different ranges of radio frequency and microwave radiation with current allocations to public, private, and federal entities.

em_spectrum

Microwaves are a form of electromagnetic radiation with wavelengths ranging from one meter to one millimeter, with frequencies between 300 MHz (100 cm) and 300 GHz (0.1 cm). This broad definition includes Ultra High Frequencies (UHF), Super High Frequencies (SHF), and Extremely High Frequencies (EHF).” Wikipedia

RF chart1WiFi is a technology that allows electronic devices to connect to a wireless LAN (WLAN) or Wireless Local Area Network, mainly using the 2.4 GHz (UHF) and 5 GHz (SHF) radio frequency bands, which overlaps with microwaves.” Wikipedia

Responding to Tracy’s emails succeeding the meeting with Laser Safety Officer Eddie Ciprazo, Carolyn Mackenzie, the Radiation Safety Officer at UC Berkeley’s Office of Environment, Health & Safety stated that the frequencies Tracy was measuring in her apartment did not come from any University sources, adding that her meters were not adequate to prove radiation exposure:

Our Facilities department that is responsible for cellular communications at campus facilities has advised us as follows: They do not have WiFi or cellular equipment broadcasting between the 100 MHz-500 MHz range anywhere on or off the campus. The University is not aware of any UC Equipment broadcasting between 100 MHz and 500 MHz at University Village. The 333 MHz radiofrequency (RF) range is associated with aeronautical navigation. The airports and pilots utilize this frequency band for navigation.

A radio frequency engineer and sophisticated equipment (far beyond the handheld tools you have purchased) are required to perform a radio frequency spectrum analysis. If this work is required, an independent engineering firm would be required to perform this analysis at not a trivial expense.

Our preliminary investigations do not indicate any sources for abnormal radio frequency exposure in University Village. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) establishes the standards for radio frequency exposure to the public and these are the standards that users generating radio frequencies must comply with.”

Janet Gilmore, Senior Director of Strategic Communications at UC Berkeley, who identified herself as a campus spokeswoman to this writer, responded to enquiries at the EH&S and Housing office regarding UC Berkeley’s understanding of Tracy’s complaint, their response to her health concerns, and whether they were planning to actually scan Tracy’s apartment with more sophisticated equipment, by reiterating the information above and refusing to answer questions on possible further investigations:

Our preliminary investigations do not indicate any sources of abnormal radio frequency exposure in University Village. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) establishes the standards for radio frequency exposures to the public and these are the standards that users generating radio frequencies must comply with.

In addition, please be aware of the following: Our University facilities service does not have WiFi or cellular equipment broadcasting between 100 MHz – 500 MHz range (the range [Tracy] is concerned about) anywhere on or off the campus; the university has no information indicating that there is any UC Equipment broadcasting between 100 MHz and 500 MHz at University Village; and the handheld radio frequency detection tools such as the ones [Tracy] is using are not accurate tools for performing a radio frequency analysis.”

It should be noted that University personnel, while pointing out, in their “preliminary investigation,” a lack of sources for such high radiation levels on campus, did not actually bring out their own sophisticated equipment or send a radio frequency engineer to independently perform a radio frequency analysis inside or outside of her apartment.

It is to be hoped this is still a possibility, and that such scanning will indeed take place, as first steps in an investigation to establish and address the concerning levels of radiation exposure in this UC Berkeley apartment, in efforts to maintain the health and safety of students and their families at UC Berkley.

Tracy notes that such spectrum analysis is vital in order to determine radiation exposure to all health-harming frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum. Her search for answers online yielded some information on California guidelines:

When I went onto the (UC Berkeley) website to look at the Non-Ionizing Radiation Safety (Non-Laser) Manual, I found out that the California Code of Regulations (CCR, Title 8, Section 5085, Subchapter 7, Group 14, Article 104 – Nonionizing Radiation) establishes MPE (Maximum Permissible Exposure) values for frequencies between 3 MHz and 300 GHz and there is a Non-Occupational Exposure Limits chart in the manual, but I still haven’t figured out how to determine what my exposure level has been without them scanning my apartment.”

The University has previously been in the spotlight for lack of environmental safety, which resulted in the death and injuries of students. Last year, six Irish exchange students were killed when a balcony collapsed beneath them.

Given that incident, which was considered a national tragedy in Ireland, and unpacked evidence of both shoddy construction and negligent selection of the contractor responsible for the construction, one would hope the University is doubly keen today to ensure the welfare of their students, and their protection from radiation-exposure harm.

Yet it was not until prompted several times via email that Ms. Mackenzie finally sent Tracy a copy of the FCC Guidelines for Human Exposure to RF Electromagnetic Fields and, Tracy notes, “It is still not clear what the source of the frequency emissions are, or if they are indeed regulated by the FCC or some other regulatory agency, such as the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) at the U.S. Department of Commerce.”

Radiation Surveillance, Monitoring, Harassment on the UC Berkeley Campus?

However this is not the whole story here.

At the close of the meeting held with Eddie Ciprazo, who refused to scan her apartment for radiation levels and suggested that radiation she was measuring came from satellite surveillance technology being deployed by the government, Tracy was handed a business card for Holly Aaron, Goddess of Light, Molecular Imaging Center, UC Berkeley, Cancer Research Laboratory.

The peculiarity of the implications here cannot remain un-noted. That the University’s Office of Environment, Health & Safety would deny the existence of and refuse to scientifically check for harmful radiation, yet refer a resident complaining of radiation over-exposure to their own cancer research center raises many questions.

To what extent is the University responsible for radiation harm being caused to students and their families occupying campus housing? Why would Environment Health & Safety staff choose not to verify meter readings of high radiation levels inside a campus apartment? Does the explanation given of “Law Enforcement & Government Satellite Technology” bear any relation to UC Berkeley’s Cancer Research Center?

Photo21a

NRO Satellites have long been used for surveillance/intelligence/counter-terrorism. Do these include radiation?

Two details of note appear relevant here. One is that Tracy reports, in addition to obvious covert surveillance devices in her apartment and exposure to continuous radiation, a seeming campaign of deliberate noise-harassment by close neighbors “and neighborhood people who may or may not even live here”, which she has previously reported to University Housing staff, as well as other forms of obvious harassment such as a disturbing pattern of “apparent monitoring by UC maintenance and grounds people as well as being followed and intimidated by University of California Berkeley Police (UCPD) vehicles, some with K-9 police dogs and cages, and also by UC Berkeley security guards.”

She also reports continuous fire safety checks being run on her apartment, once every three months when they claim in writing that they only do annual inspections, and points out that she has detected radio transmissions from the numerous (5) fire alarm devices installed in her small 2-bedroom apartment, and has wondered if this is related to the high levels of radiation she has measured.

Many Americans have recently noted, including ex-NSA Technical Director and whistleblower William Binney, that America quite closely resembles Nazi Germany today. Close surveillance, radiation assaults, constant monitoring, following, and noise harassment by neighbors, EMS (Emergency Medical Service) personnel, and local police are being reported today by Americans opportunistically targeted for electronic surveillance, Zersetsung-like community policing, and employment blacklisting all across the USA (as well as in many other countries).

Is this occurring also on the campus of UC Berkeley, and would that therefore imply the University administration is fully aware of and/or involved in targeting Tracy and her daughter with covert harassment and surveillance?

Domestic Drone Use by University Law Enforcement/DHS

Tracy reports an additional circumstance of concern that would appear to support University awareness of the targeted surveillance and radiation she is experiencing–aerial harassment from planes, drones, and helicopters–offering insights also into domestic drone use by DHS within the USA:

In my new protected Safe at Home location, I have spotted two satellites as well as a small aerial vehicle (SAV) drone hovering above my apartment during daylight hours and at night.

droneThe drone appears to have infrared see-through-wall technology on it along with a green blinking light. This is the same drone that is used by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for patrolling the border, only now they are being dispersed to local Law Enforcements across the nation.

This is what the drone looks like (photo at right).”

Secondly, as Tracy recently informed Radiation Safety Officer Carolyn Mackenzie, she and her daughter are currently under VAWA (Violence Against Women Act) protection, and actively enrolled in the California State Safe at Home Confidential Address Program with DMV record suppression. As repeat victims of organized crime, they are not unfamiliar with police retaliation and negligence. It would be extremely ironic if the place of her current refuge, on a University campus, has become the site of a new assault:

Because my landlord, housing authority, and police routinely ignore my complaints, my daughter and I were approved by a court judge for a Safe at Home confidential name change and emergency relocation to avoid domestic violence, stalking, and sexual assault.”

Although Tracy notes she cannot herself pinpoint the sources of the pulsating radiation in her apartment, she notes their seemingly precise targeting of her person, as sensed on her peripheral nervous system, eyes, brain, and other organs, and has variously suspected the use of military-grade energy weapons or DEWs (Directed-Energy Weapons) operated from neighboring apartments, and/or from rooftop, drone, or satellite in the irradiation of her body that her meters are registering.

This is not coincidental. I was getting radiated in my last apartment as well. This started in June of 2014 and it has continued 24/7/365 to date in spite of the fact that I relocated from San Diego County to Alameda County to get away from it.”

Since Tracy and her daughter have multiple chemical sensitivities and electromagnetic hypersensitivity, and she herself experiences multiple health issues secondary to these environmental sensitivities and is therefore unable to seek employment, Tracy hopes to seek assistance from Fair Housing mediators and obtain SSI disability income as she continues to seek diagnostic evaluations of her health and EMF (Electromagnetic Field) testing by external environmental consultants.

Essentially, Tracy seeks help from UC Berkeley in radio frequency analysis of her University apartment as she seeks disability modifications to her unit to help her shield from the devastation of radiation assaults she is experiencing while already battling a disabling health condition.

In order to counter the larger issue of unjust surveillance and targeting of law-abiding citizens by rogue factions of government at the local, state, and federal levels, Tracy hopes to pursue further investigative and legal actions while continuing to speak out in public forums about these human rights violations.

Update just before publishing, 8/17

Tracy currently reports that University Housing at UC Berkeley sent her the letter below, in response to her queries.

Letter from UC Berkeley Housing, 8/17/16:

Dear Tracy,

Our team has discussed extensively and have decided not to take any further action in regards to the radiation issue you’ve brought up. Unfortunately, this also means that we are no longer able to give you the access to a vacant unit in the University Village.

As it was explained previously by Carolyn, we have decided not to fund a RF study at your unit due to the fact that our preliminary investigations do not indicate any sources for abnormal radio frequency exposure. We do not believe there is any legitimate health or safety issue at the Village.

Lastly, Eddie Ciprazo has accidentally given you the wrong business card when he thought he was giving you his own. We apologize for the confusion.

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards,

Joonie Kim
Administrative Operations Manager
University Village

To this, Tracy notes, emphatically:

“No preliminary investigation took place! They just took a picture of my meters and told me I would need to hire a licensed engineer to do a full spectrum analysis at my cost.”

An earlier, August 10 letter from Joonie Kim, University Housing clarifies the issue of the “vacant unit”:

“During our meeting last Friday, I said that the emergency apartment may be available for you to do some analysis and to compare it with your current unit. Unfortunately, the emergency apartment won’t be available for a while. Instead, we can let you into one of the vacant apartments and let you take your meter readings for a few hours. Again, as I’ve told you, it would not change our positions except to benefit your own research in the situation.

In addition, you may file a claim with Risk Services if you choose to do so. Here is the website: http://riskservices.berkeley.edu/claims-losses

Please let me know if you would like to schedule to go into one of the vacant units.”

Tracy had responded to this communication on August 10 to say:

I would be willing to spend time in another unit, but I think it would be more helpful to spend the night since my attacks are mostly during the night, often times, while I am asleep. I do not own a sleeping bag but could bring a pillow and blanket.”

However, it appears that by August 17, University Housing had changed their mind about providing access to a vacant unit and permitting meter readings there, as noted in the letter of August 17 above.

University of California, Berkeley Responsibilities

Despite this recent no-action response from the University, it is to be hoped that University Housing administration and staff at UC Berkeley will newly recognize the need here for more re-assuring and meaningful action to assist this mother’s quest for a safe and healthful environment for herself and for her daughter, and step forward to disallow any kind of Law Enforcement or Government radiation and/or other assaults on students and their families on University grounds.

While UC Berkeley staff may seek to dismiss high levels of microwave radiation in Housing apartments as sourced from police, government, and satellite technology—and therefore not a University responsibility—their reticence in independently verifying and addressing this harmful radiation themselves could indeed appear to point to witting participation given that the University’s funding sources include government grants.

Surely too it would be to the University’s benefit to address this situation appropriately keeping student and family health and safety paramount; radiation exposure in a campus housing unit, left unchecked, is hardly likely to prove attractive or advantageous to future students and families. More immediately, it will prove indeed to be an issue of concern to all currently-enrolled students and their families.

NSA Whistleblower Wrongfully “Baker-Acted” by Florida Sheriff’s Department After Providing Hard Evidence of Covert Electronic Harassment

by Ramola D, with Karen Stewart/Includes information provided by Julianne McKinney, Cait Ryan, Deborah A. Weber, Paul Gaubatz/Photos by Karen Stewart, except as noted/Posted 8/5/2016

NSA Whistleblower and 28-year Intelligence-analyst veteran Karen Stewart was recently wrongfully and deceptively “Baker-Acted” in Leon County, Florida, by local Sheriff Mike Wood’s department, after emails and reports she made on the subject of measurable radiation from directed-energy weapons being used covertly in the county and on her person. Attending medical staff at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital Access Center, finding her to be in perfect mental health and “not requiring any help” from them, acted swiftly to sanction her release the same day, pointing up the apparent misuse and abuse of powers by Sheriff Mike Wood, who is seeking re-election this summer.

The Baker Act Seeks to Psychiatrically Commit the Mentally Ill, Not the Perfectly Sane

Named after Maxine Baker, the state representative who introduced it, the Baker Act or Florida Mental Health Act of 1971 allows for the involuntary examination of an individual through involuntary or emergency commitment, and can result in further detention or psychiatric commitment.

home1a

Karen Stewart’s Family’s Home

However, it is supposed to be used only–by local law enforcement, court judges, mental health professionals, or physicians–when someone is deemed mentally ill and a possible harm to self or the community. It was not the action Karen Stewart expected when three employees from the Sheriff’s department showed up on the lawn of her family’s home on the outskirts of capital city Tallahassee on the morning of July 26 and enquired about her well-being.

Ms. Stewart had previously been in correspondence with deputies, detectives, and higher-ranking personnel in the Sheriff’s office, from November 2015 to July 2016, to inform them about portable directed-energy weapons being used to direct harmful radio and acoustical frequencies into her home, in a sustained program of covert electronic harassment that she and her family have been experiencing since November. Prior to this, she also experienced stalking harassment, inclusive of car vandalism and a first hit-and-run incident, followed by other incidents, which began the attempts to alert the Leon County Sheriff’s department of the true nature of her situation.

Retaliatory Harassment After an Employment Dispute at NSA

Dr. Rapp Letter to Lawyers

Excerpt/2010 Letter from Psychologist to Karen’s Lawyers

This extraordinary experience of harassment, seemingly retaliatory, following her request for an investigation with the NSA Inspector-General, related to the theft of work wrongfully credited to a woman who had furnished sexual favors to NSA management.  Notwithstanding Karen’s award-winning accomplishments during her years at NSA, this theft led also to the loss of two promotions.  Karen provided documented evidence of this travesty when meeting with the assessing psychiatric staff at Tallahasee Memorial Hospital, including links to interviews and news articles.  letter3

Recommendation Letter for Karen Stewart from her Supervisor at NSA

Karen sums up the experience briefly:

“I was stalked and harassed by NSA Security and proxy contractor and civilian dupes from 2006-2009 for filing a request for an investigation with the NSA Inspector General (IG).

In February 2015, when my lawyer subpoenaed new evidence for my case now sitting on the docket of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), this triggered renewed stalking harassment by NSA and proxies February 2015 despite the fact that I had left Maryland and moved to Florida in 2011.”

The Uncovering of NSA-Set-Up Nationwide and Global Stalking Harassment Networks?

In Florida, Karen Stewart reports that she learned NSA Security appeared to have contacted Tallahassee FBI and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) when she began to experience stalking and other kinds of harassment—hit-and-runs, vandalism, and trespassing–from local Infragard personnel.

“In early 2015, it appeared that NSA and their proxy FBI attack dogs had contacted the FDLE’s civilian “Infragard” membership, and told the usual slanderous lies these crooks fabricate under color of law against anyone and everyone they find “inconvenient”, which they use to engage greedy, mercenary, faux-patriot, proxy stalkers into stalking innocent people as a national or community danger.

They (NSA) apparently targeted me to warn me off or punish me for having my lawyer subpoena–in February 2015–corroborating information on the identity and existence of Eric Hagemann, a now retired NSA executive who had broken into my home and bugged it illegally because I had filed the IG complaint against one of his buddies.

But also apparently because Hagemann and two cohorts, Jack Shabe and Andrew French, had been integral in setting up stalking harassment networks all over the USA and possibly related ones overseas and in neighboring countries.

If these indeed were the mystery bearded men (and all three were executives not only in highly technical areas but also known at NSA for their obsessive pride in their bearded appearance) referenced in David Lawson’s seminal work years ago titled “Cause Stalking,” as being integral to such stalking harassment operations in various locations in regard to break-ins and the technical aspects of stalking, bugging, GPS tracking, etc., if not all such operations at that point, many years ago, then this would begin to explain the rabid, long-distance reaction by NSA against a simple subpoena.

And the fact that a private eye I hired, confirmed that both Eric Hagemann and Jack Shabe had had their identities wiped clean, seemed to support that possibility if not probability. (Mr. French, despite his eccentric Rasputin appearance in such a professional setting as NSA, and his constant association with Hagemann and Shabe professionally and personally, was not researched despite being part of the constant trio, since I knew of no direct involvement on his part in my wrongful persecution).”

Recording and Reporting Harassment to Local Law Enforcement, FBI, and Sheriff’s Office

cellNet

Stalking Network?

The story behind the retaliatory stalking and electronic harassment this NSA whistle-blower continues to experience and expose as well as her meticulous efforts to record, document, and report to local authorities offers up a paper trail of corruption and complicity.

“When the Tallahassee Infragard fools began trying to intimidate me, I attempted to ignore these “useful idiots” as much as possible, only reporting concrete incidents such as hit and run attacks, trespassing, and vandalism. I knew NSA’s game was to try to make me report every little thing in an attempt to make me look paranoid and delusional to discredit my lawsuit.

Police record of hit-and-run

This harassment went on from April to late November 2015 when suddenly electronic harassment (EH) was then also introduced and has been on-going since.

At this point I began trying in earnest to explain what was going on to the various deputies sent out for harassment-related intrusions onto the property, related suspicious behavior in the nearby woods, and horrific episodes of electromagnetic fields being projected into the house that even wreaked havoc on electrical instruments and appliances, destroying many. Notes were taken, nothing was done however in a timely or useful manner.”

Multiple Stalkers Not a Crime?

In fact, on one occasion of notifying police of a stalking and harassment incident, Tallahassee Police Department Patrolwoman Outz stated, astonishingly: “Multiple people stalking you is NOT a crime, only if one person is.”

On this occasion, Karen reports she had called police at a Dollar Store parking lot after being closely tailgated across lanes by a young blonde woman in a sedan on the roadway from a city park, Lake Ella, and experiencing the sensation of being electronically assaulted from behind. She reports that this sensation, of being attacked by a DEW inside her car (not unfamiliar to others being targeted in these ways), fell away as she switched lanes and maneuvered behind the woman’s car, who “panicked and pulled into the Dollar Store parking lot.”

pickupOutzWhile Karen called police, this woman made a call on her cell phone, then entered the store “with something covered.” Shortly after, a young blond man arrived in a pick-up and entered the store, leaving “with something covered,” after which the woman exited the store.

“Officer Outz had arrived, proceeded to argue with me that multiple people stalking you was NOT a crime, just if one was, and no one here could have a DEW or my car engine would have frozen up if hit while driving. I tried to explain to her the DEW she was thinking about would have to be much bigger and more powerful, military theater size on a humvee. Meanwhile, I pointed out the perpetrator was leaving, but she refused to do anything, citing ‘no probable cause’.”

Essentially, “Patrolwoman Outz let a person with a DEW drive off. I believe technically, mercenary organized stalking harassment falls under the RICO Act.”

Tallahassee PD has refused to search their cars for ‘no probable cause’ EVEN when I showed them the electrical havoc being created by the emanations located in this guy’s engine facing forward, which caused my iPhone to malfunction (could not function in photo mode).

“When I went behind (his car), this mode functioned. Officer Campbell let the guy go, THEN said: “Wait, show me that thing with the iPhone again?” I said, TOO LATE, he’s GONE. You had a chance to put an end to months of stalking harassment and you CHOSE not to.”

Overnight Health Damage: Crucial to note is that after a previously healthy medical record, Karen Stewart reports the continuous exposure to the microwave frequencies and other energies directed at her—which she has recorded—has resulted in a sudden plethora of extremely concerning and overnight health issues, including hypertension, heart problems, sudden onset of cataracts and vision damage, among others.

microwaveWeapons1While “non-lethal” microwave and acoustic weapons have been developed by the Department of Defense jointly with the Department of Justice, as explored here, and are in use currently both overtly and covertly within and without the USA, the extreme biomedical health hazards of directing deadly pulses of microwave or other radiation at people, at whatever frequency or level, has yet to be publicly exposed and challenged.

Measuring EMFs and Sound Pressure Levels

As meters helped record incoming electromagnetic radiation, local Tallahassee Law Enforcement proved to be of little help.

“A Detective Paul Salvo finally claimed they would put up small cameras pointing toward my home at a point when I told them it would be more useful to put them up pointing out from my home but I was ignored. Naturally, they did not catch the real activity related to the electromagnetic field projection from strangers being let out at night with these devices and picked up in the morning from nearby woods.

As I acquired and used instrumentation (Trifield 100 XE meter) and a 5-star app (dB/SPL) to measure electromagnetic radiation as well as sound pressure levels, I narrowed down where the emanations were coming from and which seditious neighbors were complicit. Many will already know the modus operandi of the Feds and their contractors in such an illegal, black ops criminal exercise–-bribe none-too-ethical neighbors to participate in electronic harassment in trade for under-the-table goods and services while laughably calling it ‘patriotism’.

Trifield Meter/Over 5 Milligauss

With the use of my meters and observations, I narrowed down the culprits and informed the Sheriff’s deputies of the daily (24/7) assaults by civilians with equipment classified as weapons of war and therefore not legal for civilians to have, much less use. I pointed out that their use was more accurately described as Domestic Terrorism than crime and should be viewed and treated as such. But over and over and over again, I got excuses and insults from deputies.” (Covered further below.)

Photos below: Karen suspects “agents far too fit to be homeless, transferring DEWs or battery packs surreptitiously to avoid being identified by car license plates or repeated patterns of visits to neighborhood. Far too many people walk into neighborhood from major highway to be normal at all.”

Growing Public Awareness of Stalking Harassment and “Electronic Harassment”

It should be noted here that the combination of Stalking Harassment and “Electronic Harassment”—shorthand for covert assault with microwave radio-frequency and other  “less-than-lethal” weapons employing electromagnetic and acoustical frequencies–is both a national and global phenomenon currently, has been covered here earlier, and continues to be reported by high numbers of activists, whistleblowers, ordinary civilians, and military veterans, many of whom suspect they are also being exploited as non-consensual subjects of covert Military/Intelligence neuro-experimentation and field testing of directed-energy weapons.

Notice of undercover retaliatory and repressive programs of stalking and electronic harassment operative in the USA has been previously provided, among others, by FBI whistleblowers Ted Gunderson, Mike German, Geral Sosbee, and NSA whistleblowers Mark Novitsky and Thomas Drake, while NSA whistleblowers Russell Tice and William Binney have alluded to such programs in discussing abuses of extreme surveillance.

Extensive information currently can be found online on the nature and application of microwave weapons or DEWs, and on their usage in covert electronic harassment programs by Fusion Centers targeting innocent Americans, ranging from the cornerstone 1992 report by ex-Army Intelligence officer Julianne McKinney, Microwave Harassment and Mind Control Experimentation, to the 2006 Project Censored/Sonoma State University/Media Freedom Foundation report titled US Electromagnetic Weapons and Human Rights/A Study of the History of US Intelligence Community Human Rights Violations and Continuing Research in Electromagnetic Weapons, to microwave weapon expert Barrie Trower’s interviews, and informative websites set up by activists Harlan Girard, Cheryl Welsh, Magnus Olsson, ICAACT, EUCACH, and other organizations. Several books by investigative writers and researchers also cover these subjects, offering details on patents and technologies, notably those by writers Dr. Rauni Luukanen-Kilde, Dr. Nick Begich, Dr. John Hall, Renee Pittman Mitchell, Dr. Robert Duncan, Rosanne Marie Schneider, and Mark M. Rich.

Through The Wall Surveillance (TTWS) Devices: New information is also currently surfacing that electronic harassment in the community is possibly related to untested radio-frequency Through the Wall Surveillance (TTWS) devices available nationwide to local Law Enforcement and Fusion Center personnel, among other recipients in a wide net cast by published lists of Public Safety Radio Pool membership, which can include anyone from EMS personnel to lifeguards at a swimming pool, under experimental FCC licenses (to be further explored here).

Field-Testing of Directed-Energy Weapons to Ascertain Bio-Effects: Additionally, military contracts reveal ongoing field-testing of Directed-Energy Weapons to include millimeter-wave weapons, as in the now rather notorious  US Air Force $49 million contract with General Dynamics testing bio-effects of DEWs on humans–where it is still unconfirmed whether non-consensual field testing is being conducted.

Covert Silencing with Radiation Weaponry: Speculation continues that many other forms of radiation weaponry are being tested and operated covertly in the community. Deborah A. Weber, a former psychiatric facilities manager, whose latter career was environmental toxicology, states that both non-ionizing and ionizing radiation weapons are being used. “They’re using both on certain select targets. And they’re using a hell of a lot more than microwaves– particle beams, plasma beams, you name it.” She mentions an ex-Marine and former employer whom she learned later oversaw Black Ops in a Seattle elder-living community, “creating acute exposures to ionizing radiation, i.e. inoperable brain cancer within 3 months or less,” targeting “veterans who worked in microwave, sonar, and other radiation weaponry & technology.” In addition, she mentions having recorded, with other residents, including a Navy SEAL, RADs (Radiation Dosage) on a Geiger Counter, signifying ionizing radiation, at an apartment complex in Albany, New York.

“Non-Lethal” is a Misnomer: The whole concept of “Non-Lethal” and “Less-Than-Lethal” weapons, in fact, currently in use by the Department of Defense and, less overtly it seems, by the Department of Justice, is one of continuing public concern, particularly since some of these weapons are possibly being transitioned for use as surveillance, monitoring, and restraining devices by Law Enforcement. The “Active Denial System” for instance, much touted as a crowd-control weapon, is apparently not non-lethal in its entirety, according to Paul Gaubatz, an OSI (Office of Special Investigations) agent who worked on Security for this system at Kirtland Air Force Base, where it was developed.

In a 2008 article by Sharon Weinberger at Wired titled “‘Ray Gun’ a Lethal Weapon, Says Former OSI Agent,” Mr. Gaubatz reported seeing truckloads of animals brought on to the base in the middle of the night and implies he saw them being incinerated by the “Ray Gun”:

“Gaubatz said he saw clear evidence that the Air Force was testing lethal effects related to microwave weapons, including the Active Denial System.

The Active Denial System, of course, is the military’s nonlethal “pain ray” that uses millimeter waves to heat the top layer of skin to create an intense burning sensation.

…Gaubatz’ more controversial claim is that the Active Denial System is really designed as a lethal weapon. That would mean all the testing and legal review related to its deployment is a cover-up.” Sharon Weinberger, Wired

Disinformation and PsyOps Efforts Increase in Mainstream Media to Tag Victims as Insane

It should also be noted that there appears to be a concerted effort currently in corporate mainstream media—just as in local Law Enforcement arenas–to dismiss reports of remote electronic assault and discredit those reporting it as mentally ill and delusional, as openly evident in slanted and dismissive coverage of “Targeted Individuals” and “Gangstalking” in such publications as the New York Times and Motherboard, possibly to quell growing public awareness of clandestine government programs of surveillance and experimentation with microwave, sonic, directed-energy, and neuro-modification/mind-control weapons in our midst.

This appears to be in keeping with permitted PsyOps and media propaganda permitted by the government to the government discussed here earlier.

Julianne McKinney reports that back in the 1980s and 1990s, persons complaining of electronic harassment were dismissed as “wavies,” and the government took the position that electronic weapons simply did not exist.  The government no longer takes this position, she notes, but the “wavies” of yore are still a threat, apparently, so propaganda pieces alleging mental illness are now the preferred mode of attempted discrediting. (Julianne McKinney reports extensive experience with this during the 1980s and 1990s.)

Further Documentation of Stalking and Electronic Assault in Tallahassee

Neighborhood “Secret Exercises” by Federal Agents: Adding further weight to the possibility that this NSA whistleblower has been singled out for extreme retaliation and covert assault via electronic harassment by the NSA, in a program that is actually well-known to the Leon County Sheriff’s department and points to the complicity of neighbors, private property in Karen Stewart’s Leon County neighborhood was recently the site of secret “exercises,” as she describes in the map below. The blue dot marks her family’s home.

Neighborhood Stalking and DEW Assaults: Reports from many Americans being targeted currently confirm Karen Stewart’s observation that neighbors are apparently being bribed with home renovations and services in order to host and operate monitoring and assault equipment on their property (such as covert antennas, magnetrons, radio-frequency sensors, and concealed directed-energy weapons).

Some DEW assaults traced back to this house.

“This is the home of a perpetrator getting major home renovation for his hosting a DEW several months (still doing it). He shoots through the back yards of several houses to get to ours! It took a long time to find him but meters don’t lie. Every one of the people in between are affected but do not know it yet.”

Neighbors to the left here, Karen reports, are in their late 60s or 70s and have had previous property-line disputes with their family, expressing aggressive tendencies: “They had removed markers and grabbed (my father’s) measuring tape, sliced it up with hunting knife, then the woman (Nancy) kept yelling at husband, ‘Jim, just get your gun and shoot him!'”

Stalker Admits to Murder-for-Hire

Stalker5.jpg  stalker4a Stalker7water1

A particularly revealing moment transpired when Karen Stewart asked the young man sitting on the bench in the photo (above right) “what he thought of the fact that Tallahassee was a murder-for-hire town”.

“–his response? ‘So?! You think this is the ONLY town that does that?'”

Dismissive Responses from Sheriff Mike Wood’s Department in Leon County, Florida

Reports made by Karen Stewart to the Sheriff’s department over a period of eight months solicited a variety of dismissive responses :

“Tell the FBI.”

Complicity of the FBI: Karen notes that she did call Tallahassee FBI, “but they would hang up on me continuously even after I identified myself as a retired, 28-year veteran intelligence analyst with the National Security Agency–with 10 years’ experience in weapons development and proliferation–which I believe showed their obvious complicity.”

The FBI, Karen also notes, “would hang up on me locally as well as on the national hotline, and my efforts to engage the Domestic Terrorism section of the FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement), run by the FBI’s Annie White, also was continually ignored, even when I gave them my credentials and the names of former NSA employees who could vouch for my background as an Intelligence analyst.”

“The NSA has better things to do than bother you!”

Here Karen points out this is hardly credible given that one of the reasons she sued in 2010 was due to NSA Security stalking harassment, addressed earlier in news articles.

“How come we don’t feel it/no one but you feels it?”

Parents

Karen Stewart’s parents

Karen responds: “First, yes, other people are feeling and hearing it, but because they are my elderly parents, Law Enforcement dismisses it. When my mother called to report painfully high emanations, a Sheriff’s Department Supervisor named Caroline told her she would not waste time sending anyone to the house for such a call for help.

(I render it as “emanations” because not only can you at times hear the high-pitched whining of the energy, feel it on your skin burning, but because it is a field of energy clearly being projected into the home or projected into your environment, even if from another car (or leased site on a cell tower or antenna on an utility pole) to your car as you drive.)

emfhealth1My brother also eventually began to experience it the more exposure he had to it. The more you are exposed, the higher your sensitivity, and also the likelihood you will die from exposure, just like (ionizing/nuclear) radiation. On occasion someone with exceptional hearing but limited exposure can detect a tell-tale high-pitched whine.

Note: I have endured not only what appears to be microwave but also ionizing radiation, low frequency and high frequency 24/7 acoustic assaults, in fact 10 weeks of high frequency at 13 Khz and above, which creates a band of heat that also burns cells and internal organs.

Why do I think it was ionizing? Because the air was difficult to breathe, it felt as if I was oxygen-deprived. When I got a Himalayan salt lamp, that puts positive ions into the air, I turned it on the next time this kind of emanation hit, and the air was immediately more breathable.” (Ionizing radiation implies radioactivity and comprises high-energy radiation such as gamma rays, X-rays, high UV radiation.)

CautionKaren also recounts that when she experienced these particular assaults, perpetrators in the neighborhood would presumably “set up their devices and leave the entire weekend. ALL. About 4 households,” proving they knew this was dangerous radiation. On these occasions, “extraordinarily nasty emanations were sent through the house, so strong I wondered if anyone in my household would die before dawn.”

On one such occasion, she rose early to see “one pick-up truck seem to quickly leave the next-door neighbor’s driveway (perpetrators next-door who were gone for the weekend), and on another occasion, saw a truck on a nearby road (with line of sight to my house) speed away after having been parked in the street for some reason.” This made her wonder if certain devices were being used just from the bed of pick-up trucks, to be whisked away quickly thereafter.

Given that new information is surfacing currently that Through The Wall Surveillance (TTWS) devices may be used by  varieties of people under experimental FCC licenses, as noted earlier, an added speculation might be that neighbors and community harassers are being permitted to use TTWS devices (the portable DEWs mentioned here), while paid mercenaries are being cleared to use “Blacker” technologies from trucks and vans parkable in neighbor driveways or street, while neighbors clear out.

“Second, when the perpetrators see Law Enforcement drive up, they turn it down or off, indicating our property is being surveilled if not the entrance to the neighborhood.”

Karen stresses here that she is not a scientist and continues to investigate the nature of these radiation assaults, planning to invest next in a Geiger Counter, while she continues to report her experience and speculations on what kind of radiation weapons are being used against her.

If we can’t SEE it, we have no probable cause to search anyone’s property.”

Pulsed microwave frequencies or other radiation directed outward from portable directed-energy devices, of course, are not going to be visible, even as they are measurable on EMF and other meters.

meter2

Meter Reading “in driveway next-door to neighbor’s home where their devices are hidden between our homes and they come out multiple times a day to turn it up incrementally and recharge it”.

Karen responds: “Tell me how you see “electromagnetic fields? When I showed them meter readings that rose the closer to certain neighbors’ properties we got, clearly indicating danger zone readings, I was rebuffed with, “We don’t know what that means.”

My suggestion to confer with the local Florida State University Physics Department was ignored, likewise my suggestion to confer with similar technical experts at the local Mag Lab (National High Magnetic Field Laboratory), as was my suggestion to ask the Forensics Lab. at the FDLE to assess the readings coming through our property and home with their own equipment.”

Karen notes that the Forensics Lab had agreed on the phone to help if either the Leon County Sheriff’s Department or the Tallahassee Police Department would but file a formal request for help. “That of course never happened despite my informing both entities of the offer.”

Update from Karen as this article “goes to Press”: Karen reports that she called the FDLE once more last night (8/4/2016), to report high levels of electromagnetism being picked up by her meters and was told, in apparent admission, “Oh, that’s something the Federal government is doing!” Once more, today, she is seeking to supply the FDLE with further information, in hopes that the Forensics Lab. can be alerted by the FDLE, and this tyranny can be stopped.

“We’ve never heard of ‘electronic weapons’… ‘Directed Energy Weapons’… ‘We don’t think that exists.’ ”

To this profession of ignorance of modern weaponry well-documented online, Karen responds: “I asked them, have you hired veterans of the Iraq or Afghanistan Wars? Then check with them, since Directed-Energy Weapons (DEWs) were used there by the Military. Do some research on the Internet. But they apparently would not, even when deputies relayed my comments to their supervisors.”

She also embarked on a program of public education: “I began sending them via email, articles and site-links educating them to the existence of Directed-Energy Weapons, electronic weapons, the phenomenon of organized stalking, etc.

laser hit

Laser hit, sized using a coin

I also delineated those neighbors who were implicated by the meters, by my observation, and by some experiments I ran. (With three neighbors, strategic placement of mirrors on our property, that reflect certain types of frequencies back to their source, caused a difference in recorded radiation levels (cessation) from their properties and a difference in certain behaviors by them, such as removal, relocation, or non-use of the devices, indicating my assessment of their involvement was correct.)”

Astonishingly, she notes a consistent refusal of information at the Sheriff’s office:

“When I printed out pertinent articles for them, neither deputies nor their supervisors at headquarters would accept the material for review. I also provided the name and contact number of a retired Military Intelligence investigator who had guarded a facility that developed such weaponry for the Military, but no one could be bothered to contact him.”

“When you get some EVIDENCE get back to us.”

A disturbing picture in actuality of refusing evidence unfolds. Karen responds:

SW

Sheriff Mike Wood, Leon County/Screenshot: Karen Stewart

“The Sheriff’s Department would not look at my meter readings, nor engage independent experts to evaluate those readings, nor take their own, refused to consult numerous veterans on their own force, ignored the fact that I had seen 3 devices, 2 with nearby neighbors, and then began chiding and insulting me in regard to calling them about high levels of radiation making my family and pets physically ill.

They refused to ask the FCC to get involved (FCC requires non-civilian requests), refused to review Comcast records showing highly unusual massive outages and numerous calls for technicians in the neighborhood.

They refused to consider a record of my sudden plethora of unusual health issues during the months of electronic harassment, unless the doctors STATED that the health issues were directly related to Directed Energy Weapons, which of course they cannot possibly confirm such causation and would likely be unfamiliar with DEWs much less their biological affects, though one dermatologist did suggest an overnight facial burn could have been radiation dermatitis given the circumstances.

I’ve had sudden onset of hypertension when I previously had slightly low blood pressure and as a result of sudden onset hypertension – a thickening of the left heart ventricle, sudden onset of cataracts, bleeding in the brain, small (then?) brain tumor, chest burning sensations (heart, lungs, esophagus), and sudden, overnight vision damage, all since November 2015 with a previously almost ridiculously healthy medical record my entire life.”

Florida State Attorney General and Governor Apprised: Karen records that, like many others who have reported harassment to local government authorities, she has taken other measures to report the unsettling electromagnetic and acoustic assaults she has been experiencing:

“In this process to report the phenomenon, I had also written to the Florida State’s Attorney, William Meese, who sent out investigators Derek Lawhon and Al Gandy, who praised my efforts to tenaciously go through proper channels. Mr. Meese soon decided his office was not up to the task and transferred Mr. Lawhon to another county.

I also wrote the Florida Attorney General, Pam Bondi, three letters explaining the situation and the illegal operations going on under her nose. Her response was that “The Attorney General’s Office was not Law Enforcement, so tell them”. (Which I had of course to no avail, and made her aware of that).

I also wrote to the Florida Governor Rick Scott, and got no response at all.

The tipping-point for Sheriff Mike Wood apparently came in late July after receiving factually informative emails on Directed-Energy Weapons from Karen Stewart “containing links to pertinent sites, including Julianne McKinney’s report from years ago, regarding the government’s and military’s development and misuse of these kinds of weapons, patents on them, and other pertinent information.”

Ms. Stewart observes her emails by this time tended toward sarcasm “due to their tenacious, arrogant ignorance and belittling of me and my career experience and expertise, which I felt was largely due to my gender and perhaps the disbelief that anyone from Tallahassee might ever have worked for the NSA, as well as their depraved indifference to the daily, long-term distress that I and my family were going through.

The Experience of Being “Baker-Acted”: Irradiation and Neglect at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital

Deputy Panasuaia, Detective Paul Salvo, and Lieutenant Debbie Hertz from the Sheriff’s department initially appeared concerned about Karen Stewart’s health when they arrived at her residence on Tuesday morning.

“The Deputy said they were there regarding my emails. They asked how I was and I told them the daily 24/7 electronic harassment was now in its 8th month, so no, of course I was not feeling well.”

In addition, she told them that about 5 minutes earlier, the radiation assault had been turned down, which she says “was the usual case when Law Enforcement came into the area or we got visitors, showing tight surveillance by someone of the neighborhood and our home.”

They then asked about whether she wanted an ambulance to come.

“I said no, that despite a burning in my chest (heart, lungs, esophagus) and ears, exposed skin, and head, this was par for the course, and though that morning the electromagnetic radiation levels (as recorded by my Trifield Meter) had been particularly high, I could hardly call an ambulance daily and it was a waste of time I felt to call one unless I was actually having an acute episode such as a heart attack.”

She also notified them, as many others being electronically surveilled and harassed in these ways confirm, that hospital Emergency Rooms and doctors’ offices, shockingly, are not free of electronic harassment:

“I had been to doctor-appointments at various locations in town where I had been followed and had DEWs directed at me in the doctor’s office or at TMH, the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.”

She recounted an experience of recording EMF spikes, with a meter, in a doctor’s office, tracing the pulses directionally to a stairwell, then encountering two people in the stairwell aiming a small DEW device toward the doctor’s office, who ran when she entered the stairwell.

“The Sheriff’s department personnel seemed to be incredulous that anyone could get such a device into a hospital, despite the fact that these now fit into a backpack or large purse and there is no security whatsoever searching anyone who enters or leaves the hospital.”

At that point, she notes “the Deputy feigned concern for my physical health and insisted that if they (finally) were going to take this seriously and help me, that they needed me to be checked out by the ER. So I consented to an ambulance. (Interestingly enough, the major perpetrators next door jumped in their Humvee and followed the ambulance out of the neighborhood).”

At the hospital, the Emergency Room doctor, a Dr. Joel Holcombe, spoke to her about the burning in her chest and ordered appropriate tests and monitoring. She was left in an ER room but a hospital Security person seemed to be posted outside the room. The Sheriff’s Deputy left about noon, wishing her luck. Electronic harassment found her shortly after:

“By 12:30pm, someone with a DEW had located me and was turning an electromagnetic weapon on me through the wall, likely a janitor, as (it is possible) low-skilled and therefore low-wage-earners (are) susceptible to bribes. I could tell by the resumption of the burning feeling on my skin, and the burning headache and direction of the microwave radiation that seemed to follow the janitor’s activity there, an older man with a long blonde ponytail.

This frustrated me because I knew I would be a sitting duck to these depraved stalkers and I indeed was. My systolic blood pressure jumped about 30 points from 140 to 179 quickly thereafter. Naturally, no one was in the room for any length of time to feel it and as I have said before, apparently it is constant exposure that makes you sensitive to it (because your body is incurring damage, just like with ionizing (nuclear) radiation exposure).”

Having been installed in a hospital room, the patient was apparently ignored for hours, including being dehydrated, to the point where she had to make a decision to leave. It was at this point she discovered she had been “Baker-Acted”:

“By late afternoon, I was certainly getting impatient and restless. No word on the heart EKG or chest x-ray results and my requests for Motrin for the headache that I knew from experience was due to emanation-induced brain swelling, and for water to drink, were being ignored.

So I began removing the monitor equipment. I was in the corner putting on my shoes when a nurse passed by the room and said, “Oh my God, where is she? Did anyone see our Baker Act patient leave?”

So, my suspicions were correct, the insincere and duplicitous Sheriff’s Department had (done this) in vengeance for my emails trying to educate those impervious to learning and chiding them for their disinterest in consulting experts instead of blaming the victim–I was being met with retaliation and abuse of power.

So I made myself known and demanded to be told, had I indeed been Baker Acted, and was told yes, that I could not leave until evaluated at the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital Access Center, in another building, and that they could decide to send me to the Psychiatric Ward for as long as 72 hours.

At that point, I said, “Since when does other people’s gross stupidity and ignorance mean that another person is mentally defective?

The ER doctor, Dr. Holcombe apologized and said there was nothing they could do, I had to follow the process.”

Fraudulent Baker Act Attempt Fails as Psychiatric Staff Recommend Release

Karen Stewart reports that her long wait finally came to an end about 5 pm when she was taken to the Access Center “in a Suburban, with a ‘caged’ back seat”. The psychiatric nurse on call proved receptive and “posed intelligent questions and assumed nothing ahead of time, which meant she had an open mind, much to my relief. I cautiously told her a synopsis of my situation and then pointed her to looking me up on the Internet along with the term “NSA” and “whistleblower”. She promised she would research the articles about me and my struggle against NSA abuses.”

“The nurse asked me why I thought this Electronic Harassment was going on, I described to her an incident at NSA years before, where I transferred to a new office but they had no desk for me. They threw up a temporary desk in a corner.

Well, I sat there about 5 minutes when I began to feel ill… headache, nausea, burning sensation in ears, on skin… I asked my Deputy Branch Chief to check it out. She had the same response sitting there.

A maintenance man came to the office, looked under the floorboard, said the desk had been placed above a major electrical hub for the entire building and that the electromagnetic field was so strong he would not put a human being near it much less over it on a continuous basis. Too dangerous.

I told her that without this experience I would not have recognized the type of problem as quickly as I did.”

The nurse also had copies of Karen’s recent emails delineating the development and use/abuse of Electronic Weapons aka Directed Energy Weapons to the Sheriff’s Department, who apparently had tried to characterize her steering them to such sites as “lunatic ravings”. She also gave them a handful of people to call, “including my best friend of 40 years, my brother, and another friend who happened to be a retired psychologist, who had all experienced some effects of these weapons during visits.”

While Karen waited in an adjacent room for a staff psychiatrist, the nurse read her emails and articles, occasionally returning to ask questions.

Interestingly, the nurse mentioned that the attempts at psychiatric reprisal Karen was experiencing were not singular, that recently “yet another whistleblower had been Baker Acted and forced by local authorities to come there for evaluation, but that they discerned there was no mental problem with him and released him. She advised that he had gone on to write a book and that maybe I should as well.”

Further:

“She intimated that she would be recommending that I be released immediately but it was the decision of the psychiatrist ultimately. After conferring with the psychiatrist for a surprisingly short while, both came to speak to me, and the psychiatrist said he saw no problem with me and would release me immediately upon confirmation that I had someone to pick me up. I did, and they called my brother.”

“I did shake both their hands and thank them for not letting evil people ruin my life with a fraudulent Baker Act attempt.”

Corruption, Cover-Ups, & Complicity in High Places

Karen Stewart

Karen Stewart, whose family has been resident in Florida for 100 years, and in America since the 1600s, recounts, interestingly, that her maternal lineage traces back to George Washington’s family as well as to the military chaplain who baptized him.

A patriotic American, she offers this retrospective on the entire experience of being tricked to visit a hospital in an underhand attempt by Sheriff Mike Wood’s department to psychiatrically commit her, instead of further investigating and ending the very real, measurable, and deadly electronic harassment her family has experienced, connecting it to her EEOC lawsuit against the NSA:

“I would also add at this point that NSA has been so very rabidly desperate to intimidate and discredit me to derail my EEOC lawsuit (capped at $300,000) because they fear being exposed for not only allowing my boss, the head of NSA’s Weapons & Space Directorate in 2004, to miscredit my award-winning Intelligence report series supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003) (assessed by management as saving a couple thousand lives) to his office bimbo to get her promoted in my place to reward her for sexual favors, but even more so, they do not want the fact that she was “servicing” multiple high-up managers in Weapons and Space apparently at the behest of NSA Security, so that Security would have blackmail material on them to use for themselves (think espionage, treason).Tyranny

And that to cover up this aspect of my case, is the real reason they spent and continue to spend unfathomable amounts of money paying pseudo-National Security contractors (mercenary predators) and treasonous proxy stalkers, often greasing the palms of seditious Law Enforcement (Leon County Sheriff’s Department, Tallahassee Police Department, FDLE, Fusion Centers, etc.) to look the other way in order to allow criminal and potentially lethal electronic weapons attacks on me 24/7 for 8 months now, under color of law, when clearly, this criminal activity bears no legal validity according to the Constitution, and is further castigated by the Supreme Court decision in Marbury v. Madison, that any law passed contrary to the Constitution is void.

I would also point out that these very Law Enforcement entities were those that Myron May, the Florida Strozier Library shooter from February 2014, another targeted individual, had appealed to for help repeatedly and had instead been thrown to the wolves by–the wolves being the very same stalking harassment groups targeting me now in Tallahassee for money.

So, a massively depraved town, with a hopelessly corrupt and incompetent Law Enforcement body as well as a predatory National Security Gestapo, essentially attempted to Baker Act me for representing honesty, decency, knowledge, logic, patriotism, and sanity.

Truly the asylum patients are running Tallahassee and many other towns and cities in this country as led by the biggest psychopaths (those in Federal government), and their overlords in the massive Military Defense Contracting empires who have secretly declared war on the US citizenry, with the easy acquiescence of our so-called Oath Keepers.

TyrannyLawAttempting to claim your Constitutional rights to equal protection under the law is now a confinable offense  apparently. No challenging whatsoever of the thin façade of what we once were is allowed.”

 

Tactics of False 51-50/72-Hr-Hold Baker Act/Psychiatric Commitment not New: Clinicians Know

Julianne McKinney, former Army Intelligence officer, Director of the Electronic Surveillance Project, a sub-group of the Association of National Security Alumni, and author of the seminal work, Microwave Harassment and Mind Control Experimentation, observes that Karen was “indeed fortunate” since these tactics of psychiatric commitment are not new:

“Back in the ’80s, after the Army tried to discredit me by tossing me into a psychiatric ward for two weeks at Walter Reed, I furnished absolute academic proof of the existence of electronic weapons to the psychiatrists charged with evaluating me on an outpatient basis.

Their response was, “We’re not going to read this. It’s not part of our job description.”

I dealt with these cynical freaks by other means, suffice it to say. A long, fascinating and ugly war. I ended up being returned to duty as “mentally fit” and was promoted to a higher rank.” Julianne McKinney

Cait Ryan, Director of US-CACH, US Coalition Against Covert Harassment, concurs:

“I am so grateful that people are waking up. I had a similar experience that Julianne had — they refused to read the information I provided. At every turn they refused.

I still have no trust in Psychiatry — they are complicit, and if they are not, the DSM 5 (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is stacked purposely to allow them to destroy us.

I will say a prayer of thanksgiving that this time, Truth spoke to power and won.” Cait Ryan

Deborah A. Weber, a psychiatric facilities manager who has managed “17+ clinical/managerial psychiatric/MH small facilities” commends Karen Stewart and points to available recourse for all those wrongfully attacked as “mentally ill” by local authorities:

“You kept your wits, stayed calm, and provided evidence and rational thinking.

So many witnesses, whistle-blowers, victims of sex-crimes (also witnesses), good government & military personnel have falsely been 51-50’d (psycho-social call AKA 72-hr-hold Baker Act) over the past 30 years at such extraordinary rates that even the most obtuse of clinicians know something is going awry.

Many are frightened and then some, well… wicked.

You do have some recourse though. The APA (American Psychological Association) has barred any member from taking part in any form of torture–including unlawful detainment, rendition, etc. Any member will be barred from the Association and will lose their license and the APA will seek legal and possible criminal redress/reporting to authorities. You may want to contact the National, State and local office & let them know…I am seeing more reluctance among the Mental Health ‘professionals’.

Do tell them you are a National Security witness (because you all are as TIs) and organized crime thugs are using military weapons on you (like they used in Iraq, the “Voice of God Weapons,” Medusa/refer to Wired Magazine, and covert EMF), etc. Do try to talk to DAs, AGs, etc. Part of the game is to keep you in perpetual fear. Live to piss them off, I say.” Deborah A. Weber

As noted earlier, because of pervasive attempts at the level of corrupt Law Enforcement and corporate media to wrongfully and fraudulently dismiss those widely reporting assault with microwave radio-frequency, sonic, and other energy weapons as mentally unstable, while the use of these devices is actually being permitted, and whose usage can be confirmed with the right meters, it is vital to waken Americans and citizens worldwide to the undeniable reality of “Electronic Harassment” (possibly masquerading as “Electronic Surveillance”), clandestine neuro-experimentation, covert military weapons testing, and portable Directed-Energy Weapons (possibly in use under the label of Through The Wall Surveillance (TTWS) devices) in our midst.

Josh Del Sol/Take Back your Power: Gestapo In The USA: FCC intimidates press and kills free speech at 5G rollout (video)

Re-posted with thanks, from Josh Del Sol at Take Back Your Power, who brought us the video documentary of that name on Smart Meters. This is reportage on the recent FCC rollout of 5G, where reporters’ concerns about wireless harm to humans, including the dangers of cancer, were repressed openly at the meeting, as the enclosed video shows. Please read the whole article with care, please watch the video, and please take personal action to contact Senators and Representatives to educate them toward stopping this rollout, as recommended below, because 5G is a blanket technology that will operate at ultra-high microwave  frequencies, and, from all accounts, will most definitely cause infinite harm to humans, animals, and our environment. Children would be most at risk.

One huge takeaway from this reportage and activism initiative is that it is time to let lawmakers know we are going to hold them personally accountable and liable for their actions in kowtowing to industry lobbyists and letting harmful legislation through, as Josh del Sol advises below, a realization that we could apply in all other activism as well.

Excerpt: “Here’s some snippets from FCC Chair Wheeler, at his June 20 press conference:

“5G will use much higher frequency bands [24 to 100+ GHz]… antennas that can aim and amplify signals… massive deployment of small cells… tens of billions of dollars in economic activity… hundreds of billions of microchips… if something can be connected, it will be connected… unlike other countries… we won’t wait for the standards…”

– Tom Wheeler, FCC Chair [on video above]

Paraphrased: “We can’t let life get in the way of profit. We want to make billions from all of you, and control everything. And in doing so, we’re not only going to willfully ignore science, we’re going to remove the idea of standards and initiate a free-for-all.

Gestapo In The USA: FCC intimidates press and kills free speech at 5G rollout (video)

July 18, 2016
by Josh del Sol

youtube.com/watch?v=OMxfffqyDtc

In a public meeting at FCC headquarters on July 14, the agency which once served the people instead acted like tyrannical thugs, in an escalating series of remarkable events. [watch video above]

First, they prevented wireless science advocates from displaying a simple sign, violating their First Amendment rights in a public venue. Then, a security guard forcefully prevented a t-shirt from being taken out of a bag, by a former Congressional candidate with opposing views.

Next, a Bloomberg reporter had his credentials confiscated — almost unbelievably — for merely talking with the former Congressional candidate.

Following these incidents, the reporter, Todd Shields, was visibly irate with FCC Commissioner Tom Wheeler — who also happens to be the former president of CTIA, the wireless industry’s lobbying organization.

“Moments ago I was attempting to talk to to some people who came to attend the meeting and have concerns about radiation and 5G. And your security force intervened — told the guy he couldn’t show me the t-shirt he wished to display at the meeting, forced him to put it away, and confiscated my FCC-issued ID. Is this consonant with the discussion that ought to be taking place here, and what’s your reaction to this action by your staff?”

-Todd Shields, Bloomberg reporter, to FCC Chair Wheeler [on video above]

Bloomberg reporter Todd Shields had his credentials confiscated — for talking with a former Congressional candidate about 5G and health concerns.

And in the Q&A that followed, the former Congressional candidate Kevin Mottus successfully added another dose of truth the narrative.

“Hey Tom, with the NTP study showing wireless causes cancer sub-thermally, how can you proceed with more wireless expansion, with FCC standards only recognizing thermal effects — ignoring thousands of studies showing cancerous effects, neurological effects, reproductive harm, immune system disorders… people are being electrosensitive…”

-Kevin Mottus, former Congressional candidate, to Wheeler [on video above]

After about 20 seconds of yielding the floor to Mottus, Wheeler interrupted, dodged this very appropriate question, and diverted to an FCC-compliant journalist:

“Lydia, do you have a question?

(Which, on the video, almost sounds like a Wheeler Freudian slip: “Litigate. Do you have a question?”)

There have been thousands of published peer-reviewed studies that indicate the proliferation of microwave (wireless) technologies is not safe to biological life. (See meta-study links here, here, here and here.)

Why is the FCC resorting to Gestapo-like tactics of suppression and outright intimidation?

The issue here, is that the Federal Communications Commission just rubber-stamped their rollout of “5G” cellular technology, which while increasing throughput, would blanket all planetary life with ultra-high microwave frequencies — 24Ghz and up. The fact that these frequencies have never been tested as safe is not stopping corporate-government plans for an unleashing of “massive infrastructure”.

FCCBut there have been thousands of published peer-reviewed studies that indicate the proliferation of microwave (wireless) technologies is not safe to biological life. (See meta-study links here, here, here and here.)

So, because there’s a lot of money in a wireless economy and the data-harvesting that comes with it — trillions, in fact — Big Industry has bought the science, bought lawmakers, ruled the proliferation of microwaves as “safe”, and infiltrated the FCC along with most international health agencies.

And in the face of this willful, for-profit negligence, instead of employing conscience and responsibility, they’re actively silencing all opposition. You know, those of the human species that pay attention to passé concepts like science and reason.

Here’s some snippets from FCC Chair Wheeler, at his June 20 press conference:

“5G will use much higher frequency bands [24 to 100+ GHz]… antennas that can aim and amplify signals… massive deployment of small cells… tens of billions of dollars in economic activity… hundreds of billions of microchips… if something can be connected, it will be connected… unlike other countries… we won’t wait for the standards…”

– Tom Wheeler, FCC Chair [on video above]

Paraphrased: “We can’t let life get in the way of profit. We want to make billions from all of you, and control everything. And in doing so, we’re not only going to willfully ignore science, we’re going to remove the idea of standards and initiate a free-for-all.

FCC Chair and former industry lobbyist Tom Wheeler announces proliferation of 5G microwave technology, privatizes rollout and removes oversight and standards

If unchecked, what could this lead to?

The implications of all of this are very far-reaching. How far? Well, to find out, let’s start with what we know.

It’s pretty clear at this point that we have a government that has been taken over by corporate interests. In order to increase their power and control even more, they plan to exponentially ramp-up the deployment of technology everywhere, which a vast body of science clearly says is harmful.

If unchecked, this will almost certainly lead to an increase in cancer and other ailments associated with exposure to electromagnetic radiation. Haven’t we had enough of for-profit agendas putting profits before health?

From a surveillance standpoint, we already know there is a sinister spying agenda operating behind the scenes. The rollout of “5G” technology — especially in the standardless, profit-centered way Wheeler describes — would indeed open up a considerable new threat to basic rights.

If everything is connected, you can bet that as many details as possible about our actions will be tracked and stored somewhere — like the $2B NSA facility in Blufdale, Utah. And there is extraordinary market value in this. A director at NARUC stated that the value of data harvested just by “smart” utility meters will likely be worth a lot more than electricity itself, which is a $2.2 trillion market globally.

But besides being creepy and making the 1% even richer, there are clear warning signs that a control-oriented governing system could easily take an indexed catalog of all of your actions and use it against you in a multitude of ways.

For example, increasingly-instrusive “pre-crime” operations are already planned in Miami. And insurance providers are checking their customers’ facebook data to influence premiums and even coverage availability. So it’s really not unreasonable to see how a governing body concerned primarily with staying in power, could restrict rights or remove “privileges” for behavior that is deemed to be not aligned with national interests.

So, tracking is not ok unless we are absolutely convinced that the governing body of that system truly respects individual rights and has the best interests of the people in mind. And right now, we are not even close to having such leadership in our governments.

Wheeler’s vision of 5G would significantly enable those who are motivated by power and money to use technology to rule over everyone else. In order to protect our lives and future, we must not allow that to happen.

While we would all like to have fast internet, we must now look closely at the downside of this technology, and take constructive action. This can understandably be difficult, due to the considerable attachment that we have to both our devices and the sense of immediate gratification that we obtain from using them.

While solutions to out planet's problems are being actively prevented, steering human culture into a virtual/augmented reality seems to be the insane game of the technocrats. Perhaps "The Matrix" was not far off, after all.

How we will save our world: Individual responsibility, accountability and liability

Dafna Tachover is an Israel-based attorney who is helping to lead the mission for responsible, safe technology.

In addition to an interview with Kevin Mottus, last Sunday I skyped with Dafna Tachover, an Israel-based attorney who was present at “G-Day”, last Thursday.

Tachover, who is among millions now who have directly experienced microwave radiation harm after becoming sensitized to it, says that the only way forward is individual accountability and liability. In my view, she is obviously right.

“Until there’s personal accountability and liability, this systematic problem that repeats itself will happen again, and again, and again, and it has been. So, we learned that the tobacco industry was lying to the public, bluntly — to the public, to the government, to health organizations — without any hesitation…. Was anyone sued? No. Was anyone found personally accountable? No. So that’s actually what enables this kind of behavior to happen again and again.”

“This is the action we should take: we should make it clear to those government people — or you know, if we talk about wi-fi in schools, the school principals, who do have personal responsibility and liability to protect children’s health — to make sure they know they will be found personally liable for the harms they cause. They have a position of trust, and they betrayed that trust. And they should be found liable. It should be civil liability and criminal liability.”

-Dafna Tachover, attorney [on above video]

Kevin Mottus is meeting with reps and creating change on the ground in Washington. If you want to create real change with him, contact him at truthaction@protonmail.ch.

Former Congressional candidate Kevin Mottus spoke about the urgency of the situation.

“My background is as a medical social worker. And when I was in the hospitals I saw young salesman and lawyers coming in with brain tumors, and healthy otherwise, other than the tumor — and doctors asking them about their cell phone use. So I was clued in very early with these heavy users and the tumors it was causing.”

“Schools are now our most dangerous places to be. You have 20-40 wireless transmitters in their iPads and wireless laptops, and then you have 2-3 commercial-grade wireless routers…. So you have, really, the setting of the most significant exposure in our country, and the most vulnerable population being exposed are small children — which we know are 3 to 4 times as sensitive to all environmental hazards.”

“We are microwaving our population and wondering why our cancer is going through the roof and chronic disease is going through the roof. It’s really very sad.”

“I spoke to Congressman Grayson from Florida, and while I was talking with him, one of his staffers, Joe, came up to me. And he said, ‘What are you talking about?’ I said, ‘I’m talking about wireless cell phones causing brain tumors.’ He said, ‘That’s interesting, because I had a brain aneurysm and I’m lucky to be alive. It’s also interesting because my buddy just died from a brain tumor.’”

“So, people are definitely getting sick. And you need to ask them, ‘Does your face tingle when you use your cell phone?…. Do you have difficulty sleeping? Have you ever gotten nauseous using the phone? Do you feel funny when you’re around wi-fi, or getting close to it?’ And you’ll be surprised — people are getting sick.”

“For instance, I spoke to Congressman Rush. Congressman Rush has a salivary gland tumor, which Israel has associated with cell phone use….”

“We need to stop this before they [FCC] auction the [ultra-high frequency] spectrum.”

-Kevin Mottus, former Congressional candidate, California [on above video]

What can I do to stop this crazy plan!?

FIRST: SEND A LETTER, EMAIL OR CALL

Our friends at parentsforsafetechnology.org have put together an action page for writing, calling and emailing Congress, the FCC and others. Our friends at parentsforsafetechnology.org have put together an action page for writing, calling and emailing Congress, the FCC and others. Use this platform and templates to let them know firmly that you:

  1. Accept their oath of office to defend the Constitution, and all of your rights
  2. Will hold them responsible, liable and accountable if they do not stop harmful 5G technology in its tracks
  3. Demand the 1996 Telecommunications Act be immediately repealed. (This industry-penned law took away local rights to refuse cell tower installations on health or environmental grounds.)
  4. Demand that the responsibility of electromagnetic frequency (EMF) safety standards be transferred to an independent, science based panel that represents the people. (The FCC has NO ONE who is qualified to protect the health of the people, because it was never part of their mandate.)

This is the “warning shot.” While all know more than letters to our reps will be needed to right the ship, this is where it starts. So do this first.

Then, to join the movement and be kept informed of organized actions going forward, be sure to subscribe your email to parentsforsafetechnology.org and to our site, takebackyourpower.net.

SECOND: GO TO YOUR REPS

View Kevin Mottus' call-to-action, and join him to make change on the ground.

Mottus is calling on everyone to go to speak with your government reps in DC — and to go in person if at all possible.

“You know where the Congressmen are. You know where all of the committees are. Go. Educate them. Go like the wireless industry goes, time after time, to the FCC.”

Mottus is inviting all anyone who wants to join him in DC for the next session of Congress (between September 6 to October 6), to email him at truthaction@protonmail.ch.

It is also very important to contact your local governments, to let them know that they, too, will be held individually accountable and liable. In Wheeler’s June 20 talk, he very clearly identified the role that local governments will play, if their plan of 5G is to be “successful” or not.

THIRD: ACCEPT YOUR OWN ACCOUNTABILITY, AND ENVISION THE POSITIVE OUTCOME

Take inspired action now.This is as much about standing up to the harm-doers and holding them accountable, as it is about holding yourself accountable to do the right thing. Not to take the world on your shoulders, but to do the right thing and stay connected with others who are likewise committed.

In this process, we’re remembering who we are, as co-creators of reality. We’re accepting responsibility for the fact that we let the situation become what it is today, because of our passive trust in those who have become corrupted — but we’re forgiving ourselves, trusting in the greater flow, and coming together.

Though it can be painful to face the situation and accept the necessity of our action, we just have to do it. We’re now seeing clearly that in order for the human species to make it through this threshold, individual rights must be protected.

It is not ok to suppress free speech. It is not ok to suppress science; whenever this happens the resulting harm is enormous. And it is not ok to prioritize power and greed above life itself.

So the only way left is to grow up, individually and as a species. When we do this — by taking responsibility and putting our Inspired Will into the world — we open the door to a future of awakening, freedom and peace for all humanity.

The Baton Rouge Gunman and “Targeted Individuals”: US Naval Academy Graduate Educates Americans on Non-Consensual Neuro-Experimentation

by Ramola D/The Everyday Concerned Citizen/Posted July 22, 2016

Whistleblower David Voigts, former Naval Officer and systems engineer with a background in Surface Warfare, Electronic Warfare, and Nuclear Engineering, who has been walking cross-country for “Targeted Individuals” since mid-spring this year, spoke out recently, both in a Wheel of Freedom interview, and on Facebook (covered here)  to condemn the hidden Military/Intelligence programs of non-consensual neuro-experimentation currently underway in the United States of America and worldwide, which he suspects has been operative in the case of the Baton Rouge shooter, Gavin Long.

In a Facebook post on July 18, David Voigts, who is currently in Seymour, Indiana, wrote:

This is why I’m walking across the country with a huge sign on my back. The US has developed a human-machine interface weapon that spoofs the nervous system. It is being misused to torture American citizens. This shooting in Baton Rouge is one of the outcomes.”

Gavin Long, who adopted the name Cosmo Setepenra, and wrote books on self-improvement, was the young 29-year-old ex-Marine and Iraq war veteran reportedly killed by police in Baton Rouge after he reportedly shot at six police officers, killing three and wounding the others, following the recent reported deaths of Alton Sterling and Philandro Castile at the hands of police.

gavin-long1

Gavin Long

News reports on investigations into his background as well as recordings of talk show interviews reveal that he had mentioned being targeted and was a member of Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance, a group advocating for those being covertly targeted, assaulted, non-consensually experimented on, and hyper-surveilled in a variety of ways in their communities, including with experimental military directed-energy weapons, biometric and physical surveillance devices, synthetic telepathy, and remote bio-hacking neuroweapons.

Gavin Long’s Story is Still Being Investigated by Alternative Media Analysts Concerned About False Flags

Notably, since this incident is scarcely a week old, analysis of reports of the shooting and of Gavin Long by astute news observers online is still ongoing.

The quite relevant question today of false flags, set-ups, Masonic numerology connections, and Gavin Long as a “patsy” is being considered online at various sites, since many are concerned that conditions of civil war and groups of civilians being pitted against each other and against law enforcement are being deliberately fomented. Lance Scurvin’s talk show, A Memorial to Freedom Fighter Cosmo Setepenra: Our Modern Day Nat Turner! features Gavin Long’s friends and explores his life and personality in humanizing ways quite different from mainstream media reports. Callers to this show say they have “nothing negative” to say about Gavin Long.

Because Gavin Long was an engaging public speaker and author who questioned government and law enforcement oppression and worked positively to promote holistic healing, natural health, and self-empowerment, observers also note the issue of dozens of holistic doctors being killed today (implicating dark operatives in a pharmaceutical industry keen to keep naturalistic cancer and autism cures under wraps), as being another possible angle to consider.

Gavin Long as Bio-Hacked “Targeted Individual”

The very fact though that Gavin Long has admitted to having been targeted and stalked raises the spectre of ongoing covert targeting and covert neuro-experimentation, the issue that David Voigts is working hard to publicize (and covered in this article), for a media-deceived public. Given that much is still being uncovered and analyzed currently, this writer wishes to underline that it is only the possibility that Gavin Long did indeed engage in these reported shootings, as a deliberately steered bio-hacked “Targeted Individual”, that is being covered in this article. (Since it is still entirely possible this was an engineered event, in which he was not actually involved at all.)

In a statement posted to Facebook July 19 and shared widely, David Voigts wrote:

I can assure you that if the shooter Gavin Long had not been tortured with the weapons (for at least 18 months) and psychological abuse, he would not have committed these murders. Gavin Long was the third shooter that contacted FFCHS for assistance. The other two being the Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis and the Florida State University Shooter Myron May. I’m trying extremely hard to raise awareness about these illegal torture weapons, and how they are being used to abuse civilians.”

He also shared a post by Dwight Mangum which spells out the relation of Targeting to Human Trafficking, a valid concern, since those who are being and have been targeted wrongfully—in large numbers since 9/11/2001—by JTRIG operations and agencies are also being non-consensually rolled into covert neuro-experimentation programs, in Defense contracts that are highly lucrative for contractors and participating research institutions:

It turns out Gavin Long was a TI and contacted Derrick Robinson a year ago. These are people being abused to help in the illegal agendas to change our laws and security from terrorism that is being falsely portrayed. These are illegal acts of human trafficking.Dwight Mangum, Facebook

Targeted Individuals” are Victims of Covert Military/Intelligence/Contractor Experimentation

DVsign2A1

David Voigts on the road

In an earlier post, David Voigts, who has stated, “I am walking across the country to raise awareness about the misuse of human-machine interface weapons,” had noted:

The Baton Rouge shooter is the sixth national case that I’m certain was a Targeted Individual. The others being the Navy Yard shooter, the Florida State University shooter, the woman who was shot at (near) the White House (Miriam Carey), Jiverly Wong, and Rohinie Bisesar.”

Other observers also note the other mass-shooting cases of James Holmes, the neuroscience graduate student known today as the Aurora Theater gunman in Colorado who killed 12 and injured 70 others, Seung Hui-Cho, the Virginia Tech shooter who killed 32 and injured 17 others, as well as the Columbine shooters, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, who killed 13 and injured 24 others, as possible victims of covert neuro-experimentation.

While thousands of “targeted individuals” or victims of covert neuro-experimentation, directed-energy weapons testing, and COINTELPRO speak out today both online and in public forums, including here in America recently at 2016 meetings of the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Human Research Protections, and at the 2011 Presidential Bioethics Commission meetings to publicly report non-consensual neuro-experimentation, it is the rare few apparently who are driven to violence, in manipulated scenarios that many say are set-ups to create “Manchurian candidates”, “sleeper assassins”, or mass shooters.

In these cases, the controlling brain-computer interface technology—which, by victim accounts, can induce voices, project images, synthesize tastes and smells, and control the motor cortex (taking over movement), among other capabilities—is perfected to the point of being able to literally “take over” the target’s brain, an unsettling possibility explored here earlier in the case of Rohinie Bisesar.

Psychological Warfare: Media Coverage Which Portrays “Targeted Individuals” as Schizophrenics is Deliberate Propaganda and “Perception Management”

It is vital to remind ourselves here that we are living in an Orwellian, post Smith-Mundt space today in the USA: Media, owned by corporate conglomerates, has been legally permitted, by the NDAA, to act as purveyors of government propaganda, via the deployment of Perception Management as weapon (once legal only in foreign areas of conflict), and by the Sep 15, 2015 Executive Order permitting PsyOps on the populace. By these means—and others–America has been turned into a battlefield: a space where many attest not only are electronic-warfare weapons being deployed, the public is being overtly lied to.

Image: Reclaim Our Republic (WordPress)

What we are witnessing therefore in news reports on  Gavin Long across the board from CNN to the Kansas City Star to the New York Times to the Los Angeles Times is no less than a deliberate campaign of “Perception Management”, which is essentially targeting the already-targeted as purveyors of “conspiracy theory” and paranoia about government surveillance. “Blaming the Victim” certainly comes to mind.

Post Baton Rouge therefore, while mainstream media outlets, including the New York Times, rush to quell public concern about covert programs—inclusive of traumatic, 24/7, body-hacking “electronic surveillance” (which all experimentees report as torture)–in our midst by quelling and discrediting the voices of witness, promoting their trademark image instead of “Targeted Individuals” as mentally ill, schizoid, delusional, paranoid, “anti-government”,“conspiracy theorists”, and “self-described”, David Voigts offers a far different picture of the reality of covert military programs, which he says continue to this day.

In his Facebook statement with the header “Please Read – I have information about the Baton Rouge shootings ***” David Voigts writes:

“This specific program uses human-machine interface weapons (sometimes called hand of god or voice of god weapons) to spoof the target’s nervous system. The system can remotely monitor the target (bio-telemetry). However these systems are bi-directional. They can passively monitor and also provide input.

In simple terms, these people are being tortured. The weapons electrically sync with the nervous system to create sensory information. All the senses can be spoofed but targets typically suffer from auditory or tactile and occasionally olfactory input.

The weapons system is used in the context of a psychological warfare campaign. The goal of the campaign is to drive the target into isolation where the abuse is most effective.”

As many have reported, this psychological warfare campaign tragically corrals whole communities and neighborhoods around “targets” through deliberate acts of deception, slander, and lies, convincing neighbors and others to assist in surveilling and tracking victims with physical-surveillance devices and cell-phone-apps, thereby, horrifyingly, multiplying the assault on victims. (Victims are often named, falsely, as mentally unstable, “conspiracy theorists,” “terrorists,” “spies,” “domestic extremists,” drug addicts, or sexual predators (prostitutes/pedophiles), in efforts to despoil reputation and create “buy-in” for community assault of targets.)

Media and mental-health-professional collaboration in this military deception essentially serves to keep these horrific covert programs of neuro-experimentation unchallenged by the larger public.

In videos posted to Youtube and his website, resources shared online, interviews with radio shows and web media, links to relevant articles on Facebook, along with photos as he continues his walk, David Voigts has embarked on a tremendous quest to educate and alert the American public to the dangers of this human-machine interface system which is essentially functioning as a weapon.

Some excerpts from earlier posts as David Voigts trekked across several states, from Delaware to Maryland to West Virginia to Ohio to Indiana, offer further insight into this weapons system:

TIs are non-consensual test subjects for a Perception Warfare weapon. This weapons system spoofs the nervous system. I’ve posted quite a bit of info on this topic. It’s used as a No-Touch Torture weapon in the context of a psychological warfare campaign.

When done correctly the Target will have a fun-house-mirror perception of the world.

This program can be exposed, I just need some support in spreading awareness and finding those folks who are willing to read the research on this topic.

These are not people who are “having a crisis”. They are folks who are being tortured, and no one is helping them.

Brain hacking is becoming part of our daily lives. While there are many positive benefits to this technology – such as restoring sight, hearing, limb function or communicating with those that have lost the ability to speak, – there are also horrible applications of the technology.

At this very moment there are ongoing non-consensual uses of this technology. ..Targeted Individuals are being tortured with body hacking technology.

I am walking across the country to raise public awareness on this crime. I need the public’s assistance in sharing this information.

I’m asking each local paper, radio station, and regional TV station if they would like to do a story on the walk.

Scientific advancement has created the ability to augment or substitute human senses. There is great positive benefit for the blind, deaf, etc.

However there is an ongoing non-consensual experiment with this technology. The victims are calling themselves “Targeted Individuals.” They are guinea pigs for a Perception Warfare weapon.

I don’t believe in non-consensual human experimentation, and I’d really like to see this experiment exposed publicly.

Targeted Individuals are Non-Consensual Human Subjects”: These Are Crimes

After the reported tragic death of three police officers as well as the shooter’s death in Baton Rouge, David Voigts is doubly keen to get the truth across, of deadly experimentation behind “Targeted Individuals” to all Americans:

I knew this was a life and death matter. I’m sorry I couldn’t encourage the public to engage on this issue yet.

As you can see with the killings in Baton Rouge, these types of crimes will continue to happen until the public comes to the realization that these technologies exist and assistance is needed for the torture victims.”

Posting a link to an article featuring DARPA’s interest in “jolting the nervous system with electricity, lasers, sound waves, and magnets,” he observes:

Targeted Individuals are non-consensual human subjects in testing this technology. Furthermore this tech is used in revenge and silencing campaigns.

I need help in alerting the public to these crimes.”

Reminders from History: Visiting the US Holocaust Museum

In late May, as David Voigts journeyed Westward from Delaware across the United States of America, he stopped in at Washington, DC, where he walked on the National Mall, photographed the Monuments, and visited some of the Smithsonian museums, as well as the US Holocaust Museum, a monument to honor the Jewish and European victims of Nazi atrocities, including barbaric human experimentation, during World War II, a place he has said earlier inspired him during his Naval training days:

“I was glad to see large tour groups assembled for the presentations. There’s a sociological concept that says a society has a cultural memory of forty years or so. Those monuments help refresh important topics. Nice to see the younger generation learning those important lessons.”

Stopping in at the Library of Congress, where he appreciated “an exhibit of historical continental maps through the decades,” and handed out brochures on the C&O canal bike path to passers-by, he reports he “didn’t get any reaction from the DC residents,” yet notes his overarching impressions of DC were about the people absorbing the exhibits and monuments:

The Smithsonian Air and Space Museum had a large model of my first ship the USS Enterprise. However, the single most important part of the National Mall was the people. I was glad to see people experiencing and reflecting upon the history on display.”

In a moment in our history where we as a people are being surveilled, spied, and experimented upon in the most extreme of ways, including with the little-known but deadly 21st-Century technologies of electronic- and neuro-warfare, by a complex of Military/Intelligence public-private partnerships bent on advancing the Surveillance State (into complete domination of the human mind), David Voigts is doing a heroic job of raising public awareness as he walks alone across the country.

No Waivers of Informed Consent, PERIOD: The Public Reports Ongoing Non-Consensual Experimentation and Demands the Common Rule Protect Citizens, Not Covert Activities

Heightened Public Concern About Proposed Exclusions of Intelligence Surveillance/Criminal Justice/National Security-Related Activities from the Protections of the Common Rule

by Ramola D/The Everyday Concerned Citizen/Posted July 17, 2016

(With information, analyses, and reviews from Norman Rabin, Karla Smith, Cait Ryan, Nola Alexander, and others. Links and resources include those supplied in public comments by Margaret Zawodniak, Todd Giffen, Steven White, Jeffrey Kaye Ph.D.)

Informed Consent from human subjects was a primary subject of concern presented by activists at the recent May 18-19 meeting in Washington, DC, of SACHRP, the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on Human Research Protection, and in several public comments submitted by human rights advocates and others online.

Those comments emphasized that Informed Consent needs to be made absolutely essential, and neither exempted nor excluded as currently proposed, in all Intelligence Surveillance, Criminal Justice, and National Security-related activities/research, particularly classified research.

Please note: Although a notice was recently released, on June 29, 2016, of a new report published by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, Medicine recommending that the September, 2015 NPRM should be withdrawn–

Congress Should Create Commission to Examine the Protection of Human Participants in Research; Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to Revise Common Rule Should Be Withdrawn

–the purpose of this article, and all Public Comment Summaries it links to, is to publicize and historically document for a larger public audience the expressed concerns, from the American public, about in-built waivers of Informed Consent being permitted via proposed exclusions (particularly for Military/Intelligence/National Security/Criminal Justice activities/research), in this current NPRM for the Common Rule.

It is also to be hoped that this extended public exposure will inspire serious consideration of these concerns and directly influence any final changes to the Common Rule, as part of the Rulemaking process described at SACHRP, on May 18, 2016 by Jerry Menikoff, Director, OHRP, and Executive Secretary, SACHRP:

“it is inappropriate for a change to suddenly come across that was not part of that discussion – a change to Final Rule should be a logical outgrowth of what was originally presented or something that was appropriately discussed as part of the Public Comment process – that is an appropriate restraint in terms of what the Government can [do] – so nothing new can be added that wasn’t discussed.” Jerry Menikoff, MD, JD, Director OHRP, Executive Secretary, SACHRP

SACHRP May 18-19 Meeting on NPRM for the Common Rule/Focus

sachrp2

SACHRP Meeting, May 18, 2016

Following a period of public comment that closed Jan 6, 2016, this particular meeting of the 11-member strong SACHRP was partially focused on sharing analyses of public comments on the proposed changes to the Common Rule, reflected in the NPRM or Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) posted September 2015. NIH video coverage of these meetings may be found here: May 18 and May 19.

The Common Rule, which comprises Subpart A of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 45, Section 46, establishing the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects, is a modified version of the Belmont Report, formulated in 1979, by a National Commission set up to address human subject research protections, and only a distant cousin of the Nuremberg Code of 1947, or the World Medical Association’s Helsinki Declaration (since revised) of 1964, designed to protect all human subjects of medical research, and in particular hold sacrosanct the need to ensure their Informed Consent.

The US Government, with the leadership of SACHRP and OHRP, Office of Human Research Protections at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is currently considering making changes to the Common Rule.

Present at the May 18 meeting, as self-introduced, were:

Nancy King from Wake Forest School of Medicine; 

Reid Pierce from the University of Pennsylvania, Medical Geneticist; 

Dan Nelson from the EPA; 

Christina Heide. Health and Human Services, Office of Civil Rights, HIPAA; 

Karen James, Department of Veterans Affairs; 

Stephanie Bruce, Department of Defense; 

Kevin Praska, FDA; 

Ann Andrews for Department of Commerce and NIST; 

Jonathan Green, Executive Chair, Washington University in St. Louis; 

Holly Fernandez, Harvard Law School; 

Owen Garrick, Clinical Research, Retiring SACHRP member; 

Stephen Rosenfeld, Board Chair, IRB;

Cecelia Chirinos, OHRP; 

Julia Gorey, OHRP (Executive Director, SACHRP); 

Jerry Menikoff, OHRP (Executive Secretary, SACHRP); 

and Jeffrey Botkin, University of Utah (Chair, SACHRP).

Adding particular poignancy to these discussions, also present at the meeting and offering public comment on both days were activists aiming to represent current-day non-consensual subjects of covert human experimentation today in the United States, who spoke strongly and emotionally against the advisability of compromising Informed Consent requirements for any category of research involving humans, including classified research. (Covered further below.)

Executive Summary Presented at SACHRP Meeting Avoids Addressing Public Concern About Intelligence Surveillance/Criminal Justice Exclusions

It is notable that the presentation of an Executive Summary of Public Comments by Lauren Hartsmith, JD, from the Division of Policy and Assurances at OHRP, failed to present public concern about exclusions for Intelligence Surveillance and Criminal Justice activities noted in written public comments.

Non-consensual experimentation activist Joan Dawson, stood up to question this exclusion (of discussion on proposed Intelligence exclusions in the NPRM) and was informed the decision was based “purely on numbers”.

Joanqfin

Joan Dawson asks about criteria for exclusion of comments on Intelligence activities from SACHRPS’s Public Comment Summary

Ms. Hartsmith noted that high numbers of comments had been registered for other aspects of the NPRM while only close to 50 public comments had mentioned the Intelligence Surveillance exclusion, and 25 comments addressed the Criminal Justice exclusion.

Although OHRP Director Dr. Jerry Menikoff followed up to note that low numbers did not preclude discussion and consideration by the Committee of important issues in comments (while larger numbers on other aspects might indicate greater public concern on those aspects or institutional concern about regulatory burden and “decrease (in) their profits” regarding those aspects), these were non-specific remarks, not specifically referencing the comments on Intelligence Surveillance exclusions.

In terms of how the comments are used, it is not just about numbers—this is a governmental process, the genuine goal of all the players is to produce good policy outcomes.

…Bottom line, numbers are not necessarily the key thing, which is not to say that numbers do not matter.Dr. Jerry Menikoff, Director, OHRP, Executive Secretary, SACHRP

A preliminary analysis performed by activists for victims of non-consensual experimentation (possibly conducted by classified research) offers further detail:

We found 85 Public Comments which mentioned “Intelligence” (both victims and non-victims);

a subset of 57 were found that specifically mentioned “Intelligence Surveillance” (both victims and non-victims).

15 non-victims addressed Intelligence Surveillance (7 detailed objections; 8 briefly mentioned the exclusion)

26 victims addressed Intelligence Surveillance (Note: an additional 2 possible victims, 1 probable victim and 2 victim’s spouses also submitted comments addressing Intelligence Surveillance)

62-66 victims submitted comments to the NPRM (there were a total of 86 victim comments including multiple comments by the same person).

In Summary there were approximately 62-66 victims who commented during the NPRM, and 77-81 victims who commented during the ANPRM and NPRM combined.Karla Smith and Norman Rabin, Authors, Victim Stakeholder Summary (described below)

(The ANPRM was the Advance Notice of the Proposed Rule Making, and was published in September 2011, followed by the Notice or NPRM in September 2015.)

Researcher and activist Karla Smith also offers a reminder that, post extensive public comment in 2011 at the President’s Bioethics Commission, the Commission publicly refused to hear any further testimony from people claiming non-consensual experimentation on their bodies, via a letter from Valerie Bonham, Executive Director of the Commission, a factor which affected the numbers of public comments on the NPRM:

“We had many fewer comments (for NPRM) than we did the Bioethics Commission because victims have given up. They are not getting a response. And they are not welcome at the Bioethics Commission.” Karla Smith, Public Comment at SACHRP, May 19, 2016

valerieBonham

Valerie Bonham’s 2011 Letter Stating President Obama’s Bioethics Commission Declines Concern About Covert Non-Consensual Experimentation/Surveillance

Regardless of the numbers involved, close analysis of these particular public comments—comprising the bulk of this article–show that these proposed exclusions to the Common Rule strike at the very heart of meaningful, humane protections for human subjects, and seek to leave all Americans—and others, worldwide–completely vulnerable to exploitation by the “covered entities” of American military and intelligence agencies, in the name of national security, standard intelligence surveillance, and normative criminal investigation.

Given this country’s history of exploitative and abusive medical experimentation inclusive of the CIA’s MKULTRA abuses, the Guatemala STD experiments, and extreme CIA torture at Guantanamo, all “under cover” as above, this is an issue of vital importance today for all Americans, and citizens worldwide to get informed about.

New NPRM Exclusions Would Further Weaken Protections for Informed Consent in Classified Research

While the intent of the proposed Common Rule, as presented in the NPRM, is ostensibly to protect human subjects from exploitation and abuse while enrolled in research, among the concerning changes proposed is a listing of certain research-like activities as non-research (and therefore exempt from protection by the Common Rule), including (in a list among surveys and questionnaires, oral histories, journalism) Intelligence Surveillance activities, Criminal Justice activities, and National Security-related activities.

exex

NPRM/Excerpt

As several public commenters note, these changes would not strengthen but explicitly roll back extant implied protections for human subjects in projects covertly or otherwise run by Intelligence, Justice, or Military agencies and contractors in the above categories. A range of institutions focused on defense, national security, homeland security, and criminal justice would stand to benefit from these broad exclusions of unspecified “activities” as not-research, as noted in NPRM language.

Public commenters note that essentially, it appears the NPRM seeks to re-classify research on human subjects being conducted or intended by such Military or Intelligence institutions as routine operation, and not-research.

This is highly concerning because it offers the possibility of shielding research as “activity” and becoming exempt from the Common Rule; researchers will no longer need to concern themselves with matters of Informed Consent, respect for subjects, or letting them opt out—matters already unaddressed in current classified research, as claimed by those stating they are current-day victims of covert government programs.

IntSurv-NPRM

NPRM/Excerpt

In the USA, basic requirements for Informed Consent, which once was an essential prerequisite to all medical research post-Nuremberg and post-revelations of inhumane Nazi experiments, have been watered down successively since, to the point where OHRP discussions now reframe the subject in terms of “regulatory burden.”

Opening remarks by Dr. Jerry Menikoff, Director of OHRP at the Department of Health and Human Services, and Executive Secretary, SACHRP, suggested that OHRP was not the only party behind the creation and wording of the NPRM, that policy decisions taken at a higher level also came into play (covered below).

Are Military/Intelligence Agencies Backseat-Driving the NPRM, SACHRP, & the Presidential Bioethics Commission?

Is there an intention behind proposed changes to the Common Rule to explicitly protect ongoing covert activities and research by Military and Intelligence groups—and indeed the precise non-consensual neuro-experimentation and Directed Energy Weapons field-testing that activists are presenting testimony about?

Several factors point to this disturbing possibility, and are considered below.

1. Late Inclusion of the Intelligence Surveillance Activities Exclusion in the NPRM

Noted in public comments are several peculiarities associated with the NPRM proposal to exclude Intelligence Surveillance activities from the protections of the Common Rule. One has to do with the sudden appearance of this proposal in the NPRM in September 2015.

Karla Smith notes, in her joint public comment with activist and researcher Norman Rabin, presented live at the May 19 meeting:

The September 2011 ANPRM did not discuss or propose an Intelligence Surveillance Activities exclusion, however there were approximately 18-20 public comments to the ANPRM which expressed concerns plausibly related to non-consensual hi-tech and/or military or intelligence or classified human research/experimentation.

…The ANPRM was followed by a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in September 2015. Though no comments to the ANPRM were found proposing or discussing an Intelligence Surveillance Activities exclusion, the NPRM contained a proposal to exclude unspecified Intelligence Surveillance Activities (NPRM at § __.101(b)(1)(vi)). These activities include defense or national security-related activities.” Karla Smith, Public Comment at SACHRP, May 19, 2016

(Also, please see Question 1 of 4, in Norman Rabin’s public comment below, questioning the late addition of the Intelligence Surveillance exclusion, without any prior public discussion.)

Why were Intelligence Surveillance activities—not mentioned in the earlier Advance Notice–suddenly proposed, 4 years later, for explicit Common Rule exclusion from human subject protections?

Could it be that increasing visibility of covert, non-consensual human experimentation programs through increasingly credible–and cumulative–victim testimonials online these days have caused agencies pursuing secrecy to seek new, unbreachable means of cover?

2. “Various Federal Agencies Responsible for NPRM/Changing the Common Rule”

Public commenters have noted that the language of the NPRM seems too quick to excuse the closed, covered, classified actions of Intelligence Surveillance and Criminal Justice as legitimate, routine, authorized activity, and not research. (Public comments covered further below.)

nprm4a

NPRM/Excerpt

Joint Federal Creation of NPRM Language: At the SACHRP May 18 Meeting, OHRP remarks implied there was joint strategizing and management of the proposed Common Rule document by various un-named Federal agencies.

Jerry Menikoff, Director, OHRP, noted that “many Federal players were involved in creating this document,” and statements of rule or policy in the document reflected “decisions already made at higher levels regarding what a particular policy decision would or would not be.”

Was this a veiled reference to Military/Intelligence Agency oversight of policies and process?

I do want to say, often, at least some people act as if OHRP ran the show, and it’s OHRP’s decision on all of these points. In fact it’s been a complicated document, many players within the federal government have been involved. Decisions were made by various people who have various authorities and make these decisions and it has not been that OHRP gets its call on all of this. And I mean that is just the nature of the beast.” Jerry Menikoff, Director, OHRP; Executive Secretary, SACHRP

nprm4b

NPRM/Excerpt

Listed on the HHS website and included in the NPRM is a list of Federal agencies associated with the Common Rule, who may have helped in creation of the wording in this document, including the Departments of Labor, Justice, Defense, Agriculture, Energy, Education, Commerce, Homeland Security, US AID, EPA, SSA, and NASA, among others. Raising the question: Do all of these Federal departments actually engage in human subject research? Apparently they all have an interest.

Joint Federal Analysis of Public Comment: While presenting the analysis of public comment, Lauren Hartsmith also mentioned that OHRP “took the lead in analysis, but they also had input from other Federal players as well.”

It is telling therefore that analysis of comments on the Intelligence Surveillance and Criminal Justice exclusions was excluded from the day’s presentation.

Was the Military/Intelligence/Justice intent here perhaps to maintain a distant silence on these vitally important matters of national interest, just to not draw attention to the important and insistent issues of Informed Consent and ongoing covert human experimentation being raised by public comment on these exclusions?

Mention of Confidential Government Discussions: In addressing issues of procedure past this meeting in finalizing changes to the Common Rule, Jerry Menikoff mentioned confidential Government discussions before Congressional procedures could follow to turn proposals into Federal Regulation and law. There was mention of the Rule being finalized and submitted in September 2016 before the next SACHRP meeting in October.

dates

Sample Comment, SACHRP Summary of Public Comments/May 18, 2016

This was public, in the Unified Agenda with a September 2016 date. It’s been in the Unified Agenda many times before, dates have been changed, but there’s a desire to move this thing forward.”

The final Rule will be a document in many ways similar to the NPRM in that it will point out, discuss the public comments, and it will respond to the public comments. Sort of probably a fine art in which different lawyers will I guess agree in terms of to what level of detail you go into in terms of responding to the public comments, but yes, that is a requirement and it will be done when a final rule, if and when a final rule is announced.

In terms of…the legislative end of things, I mean, the Legislature is open for Congress to do what it wants to do.

…In terms of my involvement, you know, involvement of the Executive branch with the Legislative branch is a complicated thing and my understanding is, there are actually to some degree confidentiality issues about what I should not or should be talking about, it’s not like there are a lot of interactions but it’s certainly open for Congress to do what Congress may or may not want to do in terms of getting involved in this topic and if they want to pass laws, it’s no different than any other area.

There are restraints in terms of there is a Department of Health and Human Services policy that we’re not supposed to be talking about the deliberations in terms of once public comment is done what the government is thinking about in terms of what the final rule might be. We’re just not allowed to talk about that.” Jerry Menikoff, Director, OHRP; Executive Secretary, SACHRP

3. Information on Acknowledged, Ongoing CIA Research Not Provided to the President’s Bioethics Commission Either

Relevant to this discussion on the NPRM, it is interesting to note that the CIA has offered two late acknowledgments to the President’s Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (PCSBI), one that yes, they are conducting research domestically within the United States, and two, that no, they are not providing further detail on this research because the information is “confidential,” although not classified.

Confidential” information, by CIA standards, from various sources online, appears to be related to levels of CIA Security clearance, implying information that poses “risks” to national security if divulged, but not “grave damage” as “Secret” information, nor “exceptional threat” as “Top-Secret” information.

The public comment presented by Karla Smith (posted separately here) makes note of a letter dated November 15, 2011, sent by Associate Deputy Director, CIA, V. Sue Bromley to Amy Gutmann, Chair, Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (PCSBI), footnoted in the updated 2012 version of their 2011 report MORAL SCIENCE/Protecting Participants in Human Subjects Research, pointing to the domestic nature of CIA research:

The CIA confirmed that all CIA-sponsored human subjects research is conducted in the United States – not abroad…’End note 10 on page 172 of the updated June 2012 version of Moral Science.

MS1

Moral Science/Excerpt, Page 160

The CIA did not report project-level data (on human subjects) to the Commission in 2011 when requested, a fact noted in Moral Science as N/R or Not Reported in tables from the Research Project Database (RPD), and acknowledged with this comment:

The Human Subjects Research Landscape Project does not provide a robust understanding of research that was not reported because it is classified or because of national security concerns.” Moral Science, Page 170

The full end-note 10, linked to the above statement (emphases below mine) may be of interest, particularly to those Americans alleging non-consensual experimentation on their bodies, plausibly in covert, classified-research projects.

For example, the CIA did not submit project-level data to the RPD because “the application by the C.I.A. of certain research results may implicate intelligence sources and methods, and thus cannot be discussed in the public domain.” Letter from V. Sue Bromley, Associate Deputy Director, Central Intelligence Agency to Amy Gutmann, Ph.D., Chair, Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues. (November 15, 2011). The CIA confirmed that all CIA-sponsored human subjects research is conducted in the United States – not abroad. CIA personnel also met with Commission staff to discuss the CIA’s human subjects research portfolio and made records available to appropriately cleared Commission staff. In addition, the Department of Energy provided de-identified data about three human terrain mapping projects that have not been accounted for in the RPD.

It is worthwhile to reiterate here that the CIA is confessing to conducting research inside the USA, on human subjects, meaning, Americans—which is more than is publicly divulged by the CIA, on FOIA requests, as this writer can attest:

FOIA Request Report: CIA Unable to Confirm Informed Consent in Any Open Human Subject Programs and Research Using Directed-Energy Neuroweapons in the USA

And that the CIA, while apparently sharing some information with Commission staff, refuses to publicly offer details of this human subjects research, although they say it is not classified, but “confidential,” and notably, that “research results” involving this human subjects research being conducted secretly within the United States may implicate “intelligence sources and methods,” which makes it necessary to keep secret.

This information in itself would be worth exploring further, particularly since alleged experimentation being reported today attests to no less than precisely that human brains—people’s own private storehouses of intelligence—are being invaded and remotely influenced or “interrogated” with neuro-weaponry and neuro-implants, and that “non-lethal” radiation weaponry is being used in tandem covertly on bodies, possibly to assist in covert, trauma-based neuro-modification and “interrogation” programs.

If these are the “intelligence sources and methods” of 21st-century interrogation that the CIA wishes to keep secret, then perhaps the entire classification category of “sources and methods of gathering intelligence” should be publicly and stringently questioned.

Clearly their misstep of not obtaining Informed Consent from American experimentees first makes it inevitable that non-consensual experimentation on Americans using these sources and methods should eventually bring these particular sources and methods to light, as current public comment from victims makes evident.

cia12333a

Executive Order 12333/CIA Website

Other non-consensual CIA research on human subjects that Americans will not soon forget is MK ULTRA. And today’s victims aver no less of a holocaust on their bodies and brains in stringent and inhumane experimentation than a new MK ULTRA.

4. SACHRP stepping away from responsibility for Intelligence Surveillance exclusion

Also noteworthy is the fact that SACHRP, whose stated intention is “to advise the Secretary on how to improve the quality of the system of human research protection programs, including the responsibilities of investigators, institutional review boards (IRBs), administrators, and institutional officials, and the role of the Office for Human Research Protections and other offices within the Department of Health and Human Services”, appears to be disavowing itself of any responsibility with regard to Intelligence Surveillance research or “activities”:

At the December 2015 SACHRP meeting, SACHRP noted that there is public concern about the Intelligence Surveillance proposed exclusion but stated that they do not have the expertise to provide commentary. SACHRP encouraged additional public justification for and description of this exclusion.” Victim Stakeholder Summary (described further below)

This was also noted by SACHRP in their own public comment on the NPRM:

“SACHRP notes there is public concern about this proposed exclusion, but SACHRP does not have the expertise to provide commentary. SACHRP encourages additional public justification for and description of this exclusion.” Victim Stakeholder Summary, Intelligence Comments, Non-TI (described further below)

Who would have the expertise then, if not SACHRP? The specific Government agencies—Military, Intelligence, Justice–potentially requesting and impacted by this proposed Intelligence Surveillance exclusion did not publicly respond to this SACHRP invitation.

Notably, we did not find any comments that offered the perspective of a current or former Government person or entity who explained specifically why the proposed exclusion would be helpful as a future government policy.” Karla Smith, Public Comment at SACHRP, May 19

Implications: To conclude this section on possible behind-the-scenes management of the NPRM, public discussion of the Intelligence Surveillance exclusions, SACHRP, and the President’s Bioethical Commission, an added concern must be noted, given the numbers of people coming forward as non-consensual victims of classified research today:

If the new Common Rule continues on this path and fully excises all classified research being conducted by Defense, Justice, National Security, or Intelligence agencies from needing to be accountable to or to respect the requirements of the Common Rule in the protection of human subjects, would this also be a way to justify past and currently-extant non-consensual human experimentation that is being widely and insistently reported today, but which these groups haven’t owned up to yet?

Public Comments on Intelligence Surveillance Exclusions Independently Analyzed by Non-Consensual Experimentation Victim Activists

The information below relies in great part on two important analyses of these public comments, submitted to SACHRP by researchers Norman Rabin, Karla Smith, and Cait Ryan: a two-part Victim Stakeholder Summary described as representing “the victims of ongoing Non-Consensual Human Research/Experimentation, plausibly related to the testing of Classified Intelligence Surveillance technologies and/or methods including Remote Weapons testing, Neurotechnologies, and other technologies”.

This Summary, with Norman Rabin, author, reminds SACHRP of the Stakeholder landscape for the NPRM:

The September 8, 2015 NPRM…has among its stakeholders: the general Public; persons and institutions conducting or likely to conduct future human subject research; and, persons who are currently, or who have been Human Subjects of Human Research, or persons likely to be participants in future Human Research.

“Most prominent and numerous among consensual or non-consensual human subjects who submitted Public Comment to the NPRM, and/or to the preceding ANPRM, are citizens who are victims of alleged apparent non-consensual human experimentation, mainly alleged testing of technology which is plausibly related to the testing of Intelligence Surveillance technologies and methods.” Victims Stakeholder Summary, Intelligence Comments, Non-TI

The term “Targeted Individual” or “TI” which has entered the public lexicon is also used here to denote those claiming victimization by such technology experimentation.

The Victim Stakeholder Summary is divided into two parts, one collecting, analyzing, and presenting comments on the Intelligence Surveillance exclusion from Non-Victim or Non-TI public commenters, and one presenting comments from Victims or Tis.

Describing the concerns of this group in a letter directed to SACHRP, Norman Rabin wrote:

Please be clear to understand, and to assure action or to urge action, reflecting that:

Our Ongoing Injustice Issue alleges a Large Scale Ongoing, Human Research/ Experimentation Program, which subjects citizens to Severe violations of Human Rights and the most basic, and fundamental Constitutional Rights, including daily liberty, the security of one’s own person and privacy of their body and brain, and freedom from repeated Cruel and/or Inhumane Treatment. This Program is alleged to have 500 to 2000 or so Ongoing victims across the U.S.”

..Because our Stakeholders seem to have been ignored in the Governmental Public Summaries of the ANPRM, it is important for our Stakeholder Summary to be clearly presented to OHRP, and to the Rulemaking, and to SACHRP, so that the very epitome of Rights Violations and Wrongdoing in the name of “Human Research” will not continue to occur. Norman Rabin, Letter to Julia Gorey, Executive Director, SACHRP, May 11, 2016

It must be stressed here that the “victims” this Summary calls attention to are the hundreds and thousands of Americans and citizens worldwide who have been coming forward over the past few decades to report experiences of being experimented upon, with visual and documented evidence of repeated assaults on their bodies and brains with electromagnetic signals of various kinds, including high-powered microwaves, and radiometric and toxicological evidence of non-consensual implantation with RFID chips, bio-MEMs, neuro-implants, and nano-technology.

The very fact that a single person, let alone hundreds or thousands, should come forward to report non-consensual experimentation on their bodies with radiation weaponry or RFID chips should ring a sharp warning bell to all of humanity, that once again, classified, secretive, and abusive human experimentation is indeed taking place in our midst.

Concerns About Covert Intelligence/Justice Activities Evading Informed Consent Expressed By Universities, Advocacy Groups, Physicians, Attorneys, Psychologists

It is important to note first though that concerns about covert Intelligence and Justice surveillance activities weakening protections for human subjects come from a variety of sources, including universities, advocacy groups, physicians, psychologists, attorneys, and concerned citizens.

Humans Harmed Significantly In Past Experiments Hidden by Secrecy and “National Security”

Notable public comments include that of Jeffrey Kaye, Ph.D, psychologist, blogger, and journalist, who has addressed torture in both his psychotherapy practice and writing, and submitted a 7-page comment with 2 pages of footnotes. He is unequivocal in his recommendation that the NPRM’s “intelligence surveillance” proposal, as also “criminal justice” proposed exclusions, and changes to federal policy regarding prisoners be “soundly rejected”:

“Currently, the Department of Justice, the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Homeland Security, the High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group (HIG), and the intelligence agencies that operate under the umbrella of the Department of Defense, are all regulated by 45 CFR 46, and protection of human subjects falls under the Common Rule. There is good reason historically for this, as government agencies, often under the auspices of “national security,” failed to protect human beings who were harmed significantly under experiments undertaken by such agencies.”

“These agencies act under a veil of secrecy, and safeguards on potential misuse of actions considered research, as defined, or even potentially close to [being considered] research, should be strengthened, not weakened.” Jeffrey Kaye, Ph.D, Public Comment, NPRM

Dr. Jeffrey Kaye included in his comment mention of various recent reports and exposés calling into question the CIA/DoD recourse to Informed Consent waivers in human experimentation, including these:

Jason Leopold and Jeffrey Kaye, “Wolfowitz Directive Gave Legal Cover to Detainee Experimentation Program,” Truthout, Oct. 14, 2010;

A Navy slide presentation at DoD Training Day (PDF)–“DON Human Research Protection Program: What’s New -14 November 2006”;

American Servicemen Used As Guinea Pigs – Tests Revealed DOD Releases Project SHAD Fact Sheets”, (no date, but first webpage circa 2002);

and a report from the National Research Council (NRC) 2008 , “Emerging Cognitive Neuroscience and Related Technologies”.

Specifically, Dr. Kaye noted that these reports and documents called attention to fairly recent—and egregious—Military lapses and failures of protection to human subjects, and a “history of attempts by DoD officials to push back against such restrictions,” as in the Guantanamo CIA torture experimentation programs on prisoners, under guise of testing interrogation techniques; in the 1970s Project Shad subjection of 4000 Navy men to dangerous chemicals, radioactive materials, and bacteria; and other notorious DOD Human Research programs, which took decades to be disclosed, after years of government denials. In Guantanamo, prisoner of war protections under the Geneva Conventions were stripped by the US Government using the 2002 Wolfowitz Directive for prisoners of the “war on terror”, and which led to the rephrasing of experimentation on Guantanamo prisoners as “enhanced interrogation.”

Additionally, Dr. Kaye notes that the NRC report on Emerging Cognitive Neuroscience found that the current system of human protections in military research does not safeguard against intentional wrongdoing, nor against the circumvention of research rules by setting up “convenient alternative frameworks (such as field testing).” Procedures and policies in place for conducting medical experiments on military personnel offer guidance, are formal, even “rigorous,” but are not clear enough to stop abuse from occurring. Ultimately, the report concludes that it is questionable whether such classified research is ethically sound at all, given its basic lack of transparency and public accountability.

Dr. Kaye stresses that these conclusions are particularly germane in light of the used phrasing of field testing, program evaluation, program assessment, and adjustment of technique to mask the extreme programs of experimentation and torture carried out at Guantanamo. The question of what constitutes research and what doesn’t should not be an issue for contention, he suggests.

The point is that in the case of intelligence or national security agencies, especially those aspects covered by secrecy and classification, or that are “covert,” determinations of what is and what is not research, i.e., what can be covered or monitored by the Common Rule, what the “exceptions” are, is actually nonsensical. Either the coverage is complete and total, or it is not.” Jeffrey Kaye, Ph.D, Public Comment, NPRM

Commenting on the recently exposed CIA torture program, he points out that OHRP referred issues there back to the CIA:

In the case of the CIA experimental torture or “enhanced interrogation” program, OHRP referred any research misdeeds back to the agency itself, in this case, back to the CIA. Such is their policy, which in this case is shown as grossly inadequate.

The fact remains, as documented in the recent release of the Executive Summary of the Senate Select Committee Intelligence report on the CIA’s torture program, that the plans for the “enhanced interrogation” program were formed in the same division of the CIA that ran the MKULTRA program.

Do we really want less, not more, safeguards on “intelligence surveillance” activities?” Jeffrey Kaye, Ph.D, Public Comment, NPRM

Dr. Kaye also cites a Jan 2015 letter by two United Nations Special Rapporteurs to the US Government on the role of health professionals in the CIA interrogation program and subsequent lack of investigation into allegations there of experimentation, not interrogation, as further support for restricting the CIA and other Intel agencies from conducting classified experimentation without Informed Consent, stating “the secrecy of the intelligence and covert operations world cannot allow any weakening of research or informed consent protections, as the agencies involved are without moral scruple, and have a long and even recent history of covering up misdeeds.”

“We are slipping away from the lessons learned from the Nuremberg trials.”

An attorney, William A. Brant, P.E., J.D., reminded the Committee of the primacy of lessons learned from the Nuremberg trials, and the absolute need for fully Informed Consent in all research involving humans:

I am reminded of an August 15, 1997, article in the Annals of Internal Medicine (Vol. 127, No. 4) by Edmund D. Pellegrino, M.D. that I believe is applicable to my comments here.

Nearly 70 years ago now, we learned of the moral depravity of the 20 Nazi physicians who were tried and convicted at Nuremberg for their part in human experiments at Auschwitz. The moral lessons learned seem obvious today and the crime so heinous that it seems silly to revisit now. Surely, those crimes and sheer lack of morality could never happen again.

“However, this is a dangerous conclusion, writes Dr. Pellegrino, and I agree. Moral lessons are quickly and easily forgotten. Medical ethics is more fragile than we think and is on a slippery slope. Moral reasoning based on defective premises tends to recur in new settings. Nazi physicians believed they were doing the right thing when they performed their experiments on humans.

“The first guiding principle of the Nuremberg Code mandated, “The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.”

“We are slipping away from the lessons learned from the Nuremberg trials. We are failing to respect the absoluteness of truly informed consent to strengthen regulatory mechanisms regarding research involving humans. Informed consent is the very bedrock of human rights. Truly informed consent is complete disclosure of every aspect and use of any biospecimen taken from a human. Anything less than truly informed consent violates what we learned from Nuremberg and basic human rights and dignity.

The proposed new rules should reflect truly informed consent. William A. Brant, P.E. J.D., Public Comment, NPRM

Guatemala STD Experiments Suggest the Common Rule Must Be Strengthened Further

Calling to attention the recently-revealed Guatemala STD experiments where soldiers, prisoners, children, and mentally-ill patients were non-consensually experimented on and infected with syphilis and gonorrhea in the ’40s and ’50s in medical research approved by Johns Hopkins University and funded by the Rockefeller Foundation, commenter Robert García, Founding Director and Counsel, The City Project, with the Latino Coalition for a Healthy California and Henry Dahl, asked that the Common Rule be strengthened to prevent future human rights violations.

[Commenter] submits these public comments to revise the Common Rule by incorporating lessons learned from the US STD experiments in Guatemala in order to modernize, strengthen, and make more effective the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects. LCHC serves as the leading voice for Latino health in California .. . Henry Dahl is an attorney with experience in international law and human rights.

The City Project represents the Catholic Archdiocese of Guatemala in the petition before the International Human Rights Commission against the US and Guatemala for crimes against humanity and human rights violations in the STD experiments.” Robert Garcia, Public Comment, NPRM

Two of the five points stressed by Robert Garcia asked explicitly that the Common Rule be strengthened further, not watered down:

1. The Common Rule must explicitly recognize that non-consensual human medical experiments violate domestic and international laws.
“2.
The content of the Common Rule must be strengthened to recognize that voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. Robert Garcia, Public Comment, NPRM

Michael A. Rodriguez, MD, MPH, Professor and Vice Chair of Research, David Geffen School of Medicine (UCLA), also mentioned the Guatemala experiments and quoted from the Informed Consent requirement of the Nuremberg Code:

The content of the Common Rule must be strengthened to recognize that voluntary and informed consent of the human subject is absolutely essential….[This means that the person involved] should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, over-reaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved, as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. …Informed consent should be culturally and linguistically appropriate as well…Cases of human rights violation and unethical dealings of research conducted both abroad and in US, should include financial and emotional compensation for the subjects involved.” Michael A.Rodriguez, MD, MPH, Public Comment, NPRM

“Lousy with Loopholes”: Even Current Regulations for Classified Research Don’t Protect Informed Consent

Compliance with the extant Common Rule would imply the acquisition and documentation of Informed Consent from all those participating in research. Many observers note however that Intelligence agencies make use of loopholes to evade Consent requirements.

A comment submitted by Lizbet Boroughs for the Association of American Universities, and Association of Public Land Grant Universities noted that their member organizations found the exclusions unclear while observing that existing regulations “already allow department or agency heads to waive the applicability of some or all of the regulatory provisions for specific research activities or classes of research activities so long as OHRP is notified.”

The Victim Stakeholder Summary notes, on this comment, that, as per the current Common Rule, even notification to OHRP is not stringently required for waivers, particularly for classified Intelligence Surveillance activities, where agencies may also be held by classification law from publishing advance notice in the Federal Register or even providing notice to OHRP.

NPRM/Excerpt

Currently, the Central Intelligence Agency is supposedly required to, by Executive Order 12333, comply with all subparts of 45 CFR part 46, while the Department of Homeland Security, created after issuance of the Common Rule, is also required to apply all subparts of 45 CFR part 46 to its human research activities.

Robin Baker, supporter of The Electronic Frontier Foundation, relays the reality on the ground, quoting partially from their recent article examining protections, Human Research Loopholes: Alive and Well:

The Common Rule is supposed to affirmatively protect us from the abuses of the future. However, the proposed regulation is lousy with loopholes, including ones that could exempt tracking online behavior and experiments related to intelligence activities.

“This federal policy purportedly binds the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and numerous other agencies, including the CIA and Department of Homeland Security (per Executive Order 12333). But as we’ve seen, these agencies are adept at honing in on small loopholes, so the proposed language needs a serious edit if it is going to provide any real protection.” Robin Baker, Public Comment, NPRM

Electronic Frontier Foundation: Exclusions “Building In a Gaping Breach for DHS and the CIA”

In their article, Human Research Loopholes: Alive and Well, The Electronic Frontier Foundation notes further that setting up an exclusion for Intelligence Surveillance merely widens the loophole.

“HHS proposes absolute ethics-review exemptions for “intelligence surveillance activities.” This would exempt actions “conducted to fulfill a department or agency’s legal mandate to ensure the safety and protection of the United States, its people, and its national security interests.” The government is professing to fence DHS and the CIA in through E.O. 12333, but they’re actually building in a gaping breach for them to stroll right back out through.”

In a 10-page comment meticulously examining and disputing various aspects of the proposed changes such as the “burdensome” nature of tracking individual biospecimens over a 10-year period, attorney Lee Tien of the EFF noted the peculiar fact that the NPRM does not seek public comment on “one of the more problematic exemption-decisions” about whether an activity is “an intelligence surveillance activity” and elaborated on why this was of critical importance.

This determination should be subjected to a particularly stringent review process because of these agencies’ long histories abusing human subjects through creative interpretation of their mandates.”

Citing Project MKULTRA, The CIA’s Program of Research in Behavioral Modification, and the Memorandum from John C. Yoo, Re: Military Interrogation of Alien Unlawful Combatants Held Outside the United States, he questioned the NPRM’s assumption that the Common Rule currently already views classified research conducted by Intelligence/National Security agencies as lawfully mandated functions of their being and fundamentally not research, and thereby has always exempted them from Informed Consent:

“As a preliminary concern, the NPRM claims to be “codify[ing] the current interpretation of the Common Rule.” 80 FR 53950. It is unclear to us what authority supports this claim. This was not apparent from the ANPRM, and is not identified in the NPRM. Second, if HHS believes that this authority justifies the exemption, it should identify the reasoning it found persuasive when deciding to codify the existing interpretation. At present, it is doubtful that this claim is supported by the record.”

Lee Tien also questions the ambiguity in wording regardingsurveillance activities and related analyses” asking for clarification, since “this offers practically no limitation to an intelligence community with a history of expansively interpreting limited exemptions. There should be a discussion, a representative list, or at a minimum a modifier added here to give future courts or administrative law judges some sort of applicable standards to apply if a dispute arises.”

Lee Tien further examines the use of biospecimens permitted for use by Intelligence/Military institutions, noting:

HIPAA’s national security exception currently permits doctors, hospitals, and any other “covered entity” to disclose individual health information “to authorized federal officials for the conduct of lawful intelligence, counter-intelligence, and other national security activities authorized by the National Security Act” without patient authorization.”

Given that, he notes clarification is in order: “(T)he NPRM should clarify that the exemption only applies to biospecimen analysis if the biospecimen was collected for that particular use, and by a “defense, national security, or homeland security authority solely for authorized intelligence, homeland security, defense, or other national security purposes.” 80 FR 53950. As presently written, the language appears to potentially allow for the “use” of a biospecimen that was “collected” by a different agency, “collected” for a different purpose, or both.

It would be perverse indeed for the updated Common Rule to quietly facilitate the creation or expansion of a permanent intelligence community biospecimen bank.”

CIRCARE: “Exclusions show the Government declines its mandate to protect research subjects”

Attorney Gerald Schatz, speaking for CIRCARE, Citizens for Responsible Care and Research, and offering detailed human rights law analysis of the NPRM in an attached 82-page document that can be found here, recommended that all proposed exclusions should be stricken.

Investigators are not disinterested and should not make the decision as to whether their projects do or do not come within the ambit of the Common Rule….

Intelligence and national security have been used to rationalize experiments with dubious surveillance technique research. James Risen, Pay Any Price: Greed, Power, and Endless War (2014) Rachel Levinson-Waldman, What the Government Does with Americans’ Data, Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law (2013).

And the intelligence and national security rationale has been used for research and experimentation with unlawful interrogation techniques. David J. Hoffman, et al. Report to the Special Committee of the Board of Directors of the American Psychological Association: Independent Review Relating to APA Ethics Guidelines, National Security Interrogations, and Torture (Sidley Austin LLC 2015); Senate Committee on Armed Services, Report: Inquiry into the Treatment of Detainees in U.S. Custody, 110th Cong. 2d sess. (2008), passim; Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Report: Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Detention and Interrogation Program, S. Rep. 113-288, 113th Cong., 2d sess. (1914), passim; Steven H. Miles, Oath Betrayed: America’s Torture Doctors (2009) & Doctors Who Torture (2015).

Citing the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness Project which operated as training while building data banks, he notes:

In the national security area the line separating operations from research subject to Common Rule scrutiny evidently has not been clear enough…. Where there is a Government-approved research purpose, there should be no categorical exclusions from the Common Rule. It is a failure of respect for persons and is contrary to law to deny the right, among others, to fully informed consent, in circumstances conducive to voluntariness, [and] contravenes the law.”

Responding to NPRM questions on whether proposed exclusions would limit the rights of human subjects or compromise scientific integrity, he notes:

As a legal matter, rights do not change; they are inherent or recognized in positive law. The human subjects regulations cannot accord or diminish rights; they are supposed to be protective of rights. We point out above…the proposed categorical exclusions disregard rights and eliminate or weaken mandated protections.

The proposed exclusions show that the Government declines its mandate to protect research subjects and that it defers to some researchers who consider themselves above ethical scrutiny.”

Children are not a national security risk, they don’t require surveillance.”

Children’s inherent rights to privacy and their vulnerability to data collection, profiling, and surveillance as part of Intelligence agency research was examined in a comment by Cheri Kiesecki:

Privacy is a fundamental human right, and should especially apply to our most vulnerable population, children. … The proposed regulations in “Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects” would allow tracking of online behavior and experiments related to intelligence activities. Existing loopholes in COPPA [Children’s (under age 13) Online Privacy Protection Act (a Congressionally mandated federal rule)] exempt[s] government entities and nonprofits, allowing these entities to profile and share, even sell children’s data.”

Institutions and online applications that profile a child, collect personal behavioral, non-cognitive, predictive, pii data and share said data with agencies, vendors, researchers, and institutions outside of the classroom are not transparently communicating this activity to parents. Parents are largely unaware this data collection is happening.”

She suggested removing these loopholes, noting, “Children are not a national security risk, they don’t require surveillance. Children deserve a chance to live their life unfettered by a preconceived digital profile.”

American Psychological Association Approves Intelligence/Justice Exclusions Despite New Ban on APA Participation in National Security Interrogations

The American Psychological Association (APA) (comment excerpted below) pointed to confusion being engendered by new categories of exclusions and suggested that the basic definition of “research with human participants” instead be used to define exclusions. They also underscored the need for proposals in the NPRM to be more fully discussed and vetted by the research community, prior to finalizing the Common Rule.

Astonishingly however, and notably, without discussion of any kind whatsoever, they recommended, in summary, that the Intelligence Surveillance exclusion be retained, as also the Criminal Justice exclusion:

Although APA is supportive of the proposal to expand the list of types of research activities that do not need to meet the requirements of the Common Rule, we believe that the addition of the new category of “exclusions” alongside the old and new exemptions is confusing. Only those activities that do not meet the definition of “research with human participants” (program improvement, quality assurance/quality improvement, public health surveillance, biographies, etc.) should be explicitly excluded from the requirements of the Common Rule.”

In summary, our suggestion would be to retain §___.101(b)(1)(i) and (iii)-(vi) as well as §___.101(b)(2)(iii) and §___.101(b)(3) as exclusions.”

(The Intelligence Surveillance exclusion is NPRM at §___.101 (b)(vi); the Criminal Justice exclusion is NPRM at §___.101 (b)(iii))

Their conclusions re-state this opinion:

We believe that many of the proposed revisions do indeed have the potential to reduce burdens on institutions, IRBs, and investigators, without compromising protections for human participants in research. These include the explicit exclusion of activities deemed not to be research.”

Many, if not most, of these proposals, however, have yet to be fully developed and vetted with the research community, and as such, APA does not believe that the NPRM can be the penultimate step before a final rule is issued by the agencies that are signatories to the Common Rule.”

Regarding this APA comment, the Victim Stakeholder Summary authored by researcher and activist Norman Rabin provides a crucial contextualizing in light of the recent APA involvement in exposed CIA Torture which sought to shield itself initially as “Enhanced Interrogation”:

Note: this Comment ought to be considered with an “*” [asterisk], regarding the “Intelligence Surveillance Activities” proposal, because APA was the subject of a widely Publicized Public Scandal:

–which reported upon APA (former APA officials’) involvement in Torture-related Prisoner Interrogations, and reported APA maintaining weakened policies for member behavior to satisfy Pentagon preferences; and,

–which reported upon APA organizational upheaval within the APA in response to it.

New York Times, July 10, 2015: Psychologists Shielded US Torture Program, Report Finds

Guardian, July 14, 2015: CIA Torture Report/ Three senior officials lose their jobs at APA after US torture scandal/ American Psychological Association framed the departures of its chief executive officer, deputy CEO and communications chief as ‘retirements’ and resignations

New York Times, August 8, 2015: Psychologists Approve Ban on Role in National Security Interrogations

Therefore, the Public might reasonably expect that the APA would have voiced concern, or at least acknowledged, that U.S. Defense and Intelligence activities not only have a questionable history of non-consensual human experimentation, but even relatively recently, U.S. Defense and Intelligence have shown their capacity to fail to be proactive in applying human subjects protections.

­Note: Besides the Public Scandal involving questions of adherence to Ethics, and peripheral or closer involvement in U.S. Government torture–which are sufficient for this ‘asterisk’–part of the Public Scandal did in fact concern the human testing of Interrogation Techniques (as in fact is mentioned in filed Public Comment 0559 (of CIRCARE (excerpted above)).] Norman Rabin, Victim Stakeholder Summary, Non-TI comments

Constitutionally Protected Rights to Privacy, Dissent Challenged by Criminal Justice Exclusion

CrimJustCommenting on another proposed area of weakening protections, Criminal Justice, where such Common Rule weakening is being sought in the “collection and analysis of data, biospecimens, or records by or for a criminal justice agency for activities authorized by law or court order solely for criminal justice or criminal investigative purposes,” Dr. Jeffrey Kaye questioned the nature of such research, citing the 2012 case of Dr. Susan Brandon’s “research” for the FBI-led High Value Detainee Interrogation Group, where her observations and analyses of would-be assassin Manssor Arbabsiar’s interrogations ended up actually being used in the prosecution against him.

Gerald Schatz of CIRCARE also questioned the nature of data collection protected under this exclusion, mentioning a 2013 Twitter-message study conducted by Indiana University exploring political and geospatial idea dispersion in the Occupy Wall Street movement down to the individual, identified mobile telephone,” a study funded by DARPA, NSF, and the McDonnell Foundation, where researchers “perhaps assuming that Twitter users had agreed that anyone could use their data and metadata even if identifiable, could do what the U.S. Government itself was not supposed to do.” (Michael D. Conover et al. Geospatial Characteristics of a Social Movement Communication Network, PLOS ONE, http://www.plosone.org/artile/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0055957 (March 6, 2013).)

Research, development, and testing of technologies and methods relating to law enforcement and penology should not be excluded from the Common Rule when they seek or acquire data or biological material for identifiable individuals and are funded as research.”

He also cited a Senate committee report examining surveillance versus dissent, pointing to inherent problems with data-collection via surveillance which encroach on privacy rights:

Individual cases and programs of government surveillance which the Committee examined raise questions concerning the inherent conflict between the government’s perceived need to conduct surveillance and the citizens’ constitutionally protected rights of privacy and dissent. It has become clear that if some lose their liberties unjustly, all may lose their liberties. The protections and obligations of law must apply to all.” (Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities, Final Report: Foreign and Military Intelligence, Book I, 94th Cong., 2d sess. (1976) at 6-7.)

Referring to both criminal justice and intelligence and national security exclusions, he recommends:

This proposed law enforcement and national security exclusions should be stricken as too fraught with ethical and legal hazard and with necessity to distinguish between research and operations.”

NPRM Includes Weakened Protections for Prisoners

allen hornblumIn his remarks on the weakening of protections being sought also in the case of experimentation on prisoners (Subpart C of the Common Rule), Dr. Jeffrey Kaye notes the horrific abuse of prisoners in the ’60s and ’70s recorded by Allan Hornblum in Acres of Skin: Human Experiments at Holmesburg Prison, stating, “There is no reason to lighten the restrictions against such research, which was the result of decades of abuses,” and calling to mind “the dangers of unchecked power over a vulnerable population, the examples of which ruined untold number of lives.”

He cited these words from Allen Hornblum’s conclusion:

“It couldn’t happen in America” we reassured ourselves about medical practices in Nazi Germany. But intolerable medical practices were practiced on vulnerable populations in America, without the support of the political culture or the despotic leadership that captivated Germany under the Third Reich, without any protest from the AMA, which prides itself on its ability to regulate itself.

History suggests that we are as susceptible to abusing our socially and economically disenfranchised citizens as any other nation. If, as many believe, a democracy is only as strong as the respect accorded its weakest members, we must work to assure that neither these abuses nor the “conspiracy of silence” that makes them possible ever happen again. We must do this not only for the benefit of the powerless, but also for the benefit of society as a whole.” Allen Hornblum, Acres of Skin, Human Experiments at Holmesburg Prison

Responsibility of the OHRP and SACHRP to Americans Claiming Non-Consensual Human Experimentation

To what extent is the Office of Human Research Protections (OHRP) and SACHRP responsible for protecting those claiming to be the current subjects of classified research, under current Intelligence loopholes which waive Informed Consent?

In the hope that OHRP and SACHRP would indeed act to strengthen, not weaken protections for those being used non-consensually today in classified research projects, a small group of people claiming non-consensual subjection to clandestine experimentation came forward to present public comment.

It must be noted here that several in this group, as well as others, testified earlier at the SACHRP Dec 3-4 Meetings in 2015 and 2011, and also at the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues meetings in March and May 2011, video coverage for all of which may be found online (some links in Resources at end). It is important to note that public testimony of non-consensual experimentation has been continually coming forward for many years, yet no action by these Governmental institutions to investigate and terminate these deadly experiments has been forthcoming.

Cait Ryan: “Do Not Turn From Your Responsibility – Deny the Intelligence Agencies Waivers of Informed Consent”

kate1a

Cait Ryan, Director, US-CACH, Public Comment/SACHRP, May 18, 2016

Cait Ryan, Director of US-CACH, United States Coalition Against Covert Harassment, opened her public comment emphasizing that the Common Rule must not supersede the Constitution nor replace due process, which includes notice of government action, and opportunity for citizens to make a case.

The NRPM states that the rationale for excluding Defense or National Security-related activities is that their mandated missions are:

  • Field studies, not research and are not designated to develop or contribute to generalizable knowledge, and
  • Solely conducted to fulfill a department or an agency’s legal mandate.

Under the definition of human subject:

#2. Interventions includes both physical procedures by which data are gathered, and manipulations of the subject or the subject’s environment are performed for research purposes.

My question to you is: How do you define physical procedure and how do you define manipulations? Do they include inflicting physical pain?

#3 Interaction includes communication or interpersonal contact between investigator and subject.

My question is, what do you mean by communication – is it verbal, is it data, wireless contact? Does the investigator, not knowing the subject’s name mean that the individual is NOT a human subject? Or if the individual is accessed remotely, would this too mean the individual is NOT a human subject?

My issue with these definitions and also with how you would define separately “field study”, “field research”, and “human research”. I cite for clarification a current General Dynamics grant* that allows for “field research” with directed energy and high powered pulse weapons. Please note these are remotely activated weapons upon the human body to develop and understand the bio effects associated with non-lethal weapons.

These include directed energy, riot control agents, broadband light, acoustic sounds, and blunt impact. Under the current definition of human subject, the fact that these are applied remotely questionably skirts the definition and no oversight is applied, potentially subjecting human subjects to what can be lethal violent force – which I remind you is unseen.

So, I request that you remedy the human subject definition to account for current technology. I ask that you include “field study”.

In today’s rapidly increasing technology it IS generalizable knowledge and it is foolish to think that there is no crossover into the public sector when military weapons are now being shifted from military to local law enforcement and Homeland Security.” Cait Ryan, Public Comment/SACHRP, May 18, 2016

She also noted that her organization had learned that 62-67 victims of unethical ongoing experimentation had submitted comment, and reminded the OHRP of their responsibility to stand up to the Intelligence Agencies who sought to hide their research from Common Rule scrutiny via exclusions;

Their comments have given me a greater understanding that it is critical that you act to prioritize protections over research.

I plead with you to do the right thing: follow the lead of the Department of Energy’s legal counsel which recently stated “The Clinton Memo still has legal effect”. Tighten the rules, guarantee Informed Consent. And please, do not turn from your responsibility – deny the Intelligence Agencies waivers of Informed Consent, place field studies under the same oversight as research. Demand transparency.” Cait Ryan, Public Comment/SACHRP, May 18, 2016

Peter Rosenholm: “Don’t you think you should be listening when people die, people commit suicide who were in an experiment?

peter1a

Peter Rosenholm, Public Comment/SACHRP, May 18, 2016

Peter Rosenholm said he wished to talk about “some of the real crimes that were going on,” and called attention to Seroquel clinical trials in which he said he was an unwitting participant (as clarified later: in Rhode Island, from 2001-2006, something he says he learned about only from his medical records). He mentioned Carl Elliot, asking if the Committee had heard of him–to which he says most around the table nodded. Carl Elliott, MD, Ph.D is a bioethicist who has spoken out against the abuses in psychiatric research in 2003 AstroZeneca/Seroquel clinical trials at the University of Minnesota where a young man then being treated for psychosis, Dan Markingson, committed suicide while signed on to hazardous Seroquel studies, when Elliott and others say he should have been considered mentally incapacitated at the time, and unable to give Informed Consent for participation in the Seroquel trials.

I hate to say it but I was in the Seroquel experiment and it was never told, it destroyed my health and my life…Carl Elliott is exposing what’s going on in experimentation, and it is ugly. It’s because companies are making billions of dollars…they are setting up an experiment, almost every IRB is being approved–they are making billions, people’s lives are being destroyed.

So in other words people are dying, people are committing suicide, this should be listed. You talked earlier about it. Sometimes people die, should we list it? I think you should. I think there needs to be more transparency.

I spoke to the Bioethics Director, Amy Gutmann, I said if you believe you’re in an experiment which I found out I was later, up to 1400 milligrams of Seroquel, five or six years because I made complaints against a local government agency, they are using experimentation as a hit squad.

So there are those of us dying over it, committing suicide, we get thrown into experimentation.

I notice you don’t want to get into the ugly side, but Carl Elliott exposed it, you know it’s there.

I’d like to ask you quickly: what can you do to stop this? How can you be more transparent? Don’t you think you should be listening when people die, people commit suicide who were in an experiment? Shouldn’t we be able to look up that we are in an experiment? Can anyone give an answer to any of that?” Peter Rosenholm, Public Comment, SACHRP, May 18, 2016

Joan Dawson, Public Comment/SACHRP, May 18, 2016

Joan Dawson opened her comment with an anecdote about her mother a few weeks before she died:

In December of 2012 my mother had suffered a heart attack and we were in the rehabilitation facility, and it was me, my mother and my sister, and my mother found this very large paper clip on the floor and she reached down, picked it up and went to me and said, do you want this? We said, okay, I put it in my pocket.”

She went on to mention that paper clips kept showing up around her later, after her mother passed, in the oddest places, becoming her mother’s “calling card.”

The unstated reference to Project Paperclip, the post-World War II US Government initiative that fudged Nazi-background data to bring more than 1600 Nazi scientists to work with the US military and intelligence agencies–rescuing them, ironically enough, from the Nuremberg tribunals, and installing them later in such grisly CIA experiments on humans as MK ULTRA and MK DELTA–possibly did not go unnoticed by anyone in the room.

Relevant in this context are words from President Eisenhower’s farewell address, where he admitted a scientist who gave him pause for concern was the celebrated Paperclipper Werner von Braun, and pointed to the dangers of public policy in science being hijacked by an elite:

In holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.” Cited in James Norwood’s New York Times review of Annie Jacobsen’s book, Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program That Brought Nazi Scientists to America.

Joan Dawson’s powerful and moving testimony included personal experience, a direct address to the SACHRP Committee, and a reading of the names of many of those who have died as a result of the non-consensual experimentation performed on them today:

I worked for a Federal contractor, I was a whistleblower. I experienced mobbing which is when your co-workers turn against you, psychological abuse, I left. I thought it was over, and it came back to haunt me again, and I left my job in 2013 and recreated my life with six income streams, six months later it fell apart, I experienced mobbing again. One job, a man told me this is what you get when you mess with the police. The next week, everywhere I looked there was a police officer.

My life has become a nightmare. Part of me wanted to say walking up here, Dead Woman Walking. You probably won’t believe what my life is like. I do believe I’m in COINTELPRO. There was recently a sign-on letter by 60 organizations including one where I served for five years as Secretary and Board Member…We believe it’s a combination of COINTELPRO and testing with military weapons…directed energy weapons, nano-technology, different types of tracking with chips..these are weapons that are like Next Gen weapons which are being researched .. and you can find the research studies when you Google it. So I attest that I am definitely in COINTELPRO and could be used for experimentation.”

Joan Dawson: “We ask that human beings are not sacrificed …for the benefit of the common good, that’s what the Nazis did.”

We ask that people we talk to in these paid positions not safeguard your careers while letting our lives be sacrificed. We ask that human beings are not sacrificed for this country for the benefit of the common good, that’s what the Nazis did. And they had to sell their messages to professionals and to the public. And that’s being done today. We also know about the experiment with the obedience to authority, where over 61% administered pain to another human being if instructed by authorities. They rationalized their behavior by appealing to the greater good and for the advancement of science.We have enough in our history to teach us what’s right today. And this is not right, what is happening to us.

We ask that consent be given in all physical, mental behavior studies and not have waivers for heads of Federal agencies. We ask that this be done whether the person, human being, is in a lab or in a remote situation or they are at home or on the street. Because that can be done with technology.

We ask that consent be given in unclassified and classified research. We ask for help, what do we need, we have the numbers. We know we have the numbers of experimentees, we have the evidence, we have whistleblowers who acknowledge and confirm our allegations. What do we need more?

We ask that there are term limits on this. We understand National Security. We’re all citizens. We ask there be term limits on this, or a way to opt out. Currently there’s only one way to opt out, and it’s death.

Debra Gillmaker is the last name.

These are people that we know were targeted and that died. The only opt-out is death. And that’s why I said Dead Woman Walking.

Because suicide … I mean, we need to opt out. You have no idea what this does to our lives.” Joan Dawson, Public Comment, SACHRP, May 18, 2016

Cassandra Lewis: “We know technologies are being developed the public doesn’t know about–somebody needs to look into what’s happening”

CassandraLewis1

Cassandra Lewis, Public Comment/SACHRP, May 19, 2016

Cassandra Lewis, who noted that she testified in New York at the President’s Bioethical Commission meeting in 2011, stated that she started experiencing peculiar electromagnetic signals on her body after a misunderstanding with an attorney during a stint ­at a law firm in 2005 in Washington DC, Hogan Lovells, which led her to understand she had become “some kind of research subject”. A part of her comment follows:

Because these things are happening to me, I think that agencies should know about this and look into what I’m saying, there are others here who will probably report the same thing.

I get involuntary movements of my fingers, my thumbs, my legs. I get vibrations in different parts of my body. I get an intense heating of my skin. I get a freezing, icy coldness, that can be concentrated to different parts of my body…. I can get forced sleep. I can be jolted awake. I have facial muscle manipulations. I have forced sounds – I experience these guttural sounds that would happen in my throat, yet I would hear them in my head, it was really weird.

Casstech1

Cassandra Lewis: “Research being done very covertly with technologies the public doesn’t know about”/SACHRP, May 19

Someone forwarded to me some literature about a technology developed called Medusa. That is something developed by the Navy…I get a feeling sometimes when I lay down, it feels like some type of energy that’s going through me and it makes me feel weightless. Something happens to me where I will suddenly jerk, and it feels like electricity is going from the top of my head, it goes all through my body.

 

So these are the dominant things that have been happening to me. And so I think that when we come to you and we have been termed “Targeted Individuals,” why we are targeted, we really don’t know. However, we know that technologies are being developed that the general public does not know about, and we believe they are being tested secretly on innocent United States citizens. I’m one. And somebody needs to look into what’s happening.” Cassandra Lewis, Public Comment, SACHRP, May 19, 2016

Nola Alexander: “This Committee is the oversight for all Military, Federal, and Corporate research projects.”

nola2a

Nola Alexander, Public Comment/SACHRP, May 19, 2016

Nola Alexander, from Washington, DC, reminded the SACHRP Committee of the 1977 Hearings on (MKULTRA) Behavior Modification programs on non-consensual subjects, and informed them these had started up again, while the Common Rule had failed to protect “no consent” subjects. Mentioning a DARPA project on the Mind presented at a 2014 conference, she quoted a former Hill and White House official who informed researchers their main job was not doing good science but selling their research idea to Congress and the White House, however bad or good it was:

In the symposium “America’s Next Frontier: Conquering The Mind” held on September 24, 2014, the focus was on enhancing human intelligence. A panelist at this seminar spoke of a research project conducted by the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency called “Accelerated Learning.”

While projects like Accelerated Learning may be desired by many in order to compete in today’s education, economic, and social environments, one comment at this seminar was made by a public policy official, who “having worked on the Hill and at the White House doling out money”…alluded that it does not matter if your science is good or bad, old or new, or if falls through the cracks or is blossoming, you need to be charismatic and convince these entities that this is something we have to do.

I’m here today, to call attention to Behavior Modification Through Thought Process projects that are bad, old (they have been going on for quite sometime), and when we complain, our complaints have fallen through the cracks or ignored by this Committee which is the oversight for all Military, Federal, and Corporate research projects.

It is estimated that over 500,000 Americans including myself are no-consent human research subjects to unwarranted surveillance, thought identification, biometric physiological signatures used in neurosynaptic chips to cause “Synthetic Telepathy”, “Acoustic Infrasound and Ultrasound” which cause heating of human tissue and sickness, acoustic and optical Psycho Correction” – these terms have been listed in the U.S. Air Force Academy’s Non-lethal Terms and Reference.

And I would like to say personally as a Christian and believer in Jesus Christ as my Savior that this is Antichrist, and you may laugh and, you know, call it crazy, but it is against my religious beliefs to be a part of or participate in such a research as this.

So standing here before you, I would like to know what can we do, since we have given our issue to you of being non-consent human research subjects, to get you to take up our complaint and investigate it.” Nola Alexander, Public Comment, SACHRP, May 19, 2016

Karla Smith: “You have Enough Information to say No Waivers Of Informed Consent, PERIOD!”

Karla Smith, part of whose comment is relayed in earlier sections on the Victim Stakeholder Summary and the Clinton Memo, spoke emotionally and powerfully, for both herself, she said, and Norman Rabin, who was not present, and stressed the need for the SACHRP Committee to act to stop all waivers for Informed Consent, given her own experience of non-consensual surgery and implantation, and the need for all people to be secure and free from bodily intrusion and privacy rights violation.

KarlaRights1

Karla Smith, Public Comment/SACHRP, May 19, 2016/Speaking about human rights violations

Please note that our stakeholders continue to allege an on-going Human Research/ Experimentation Program, which subjects citizens and others to severe Human and Constitutional Rights violations which affects their daily liberty; the right to be secure in their own person; and freedom from repeated Cruel and Inhumane Treatment. It is imperative that each person’s autonomy, self-determination, human dignity and constitutional rights prevail over scientific advancement and social and military benefit.

We have a history of non-consensual human experimentation that is well documented. I didn’t know about it until I became a victim. Yet victims’ comments to the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues and other agencies continue to be ignored.

All Federal regulations should reflect publicly acknowledged Constitutional and human rights. Additionally, the Federal Policy for the Protection of Human Subjects should truly be Proactively Protective of Human Subjects.

Victims have been experiencing this for over 50 years, and on a personal note, I have been tested–over 20 implants were found including neural dust. Neural dust was originally developed by UC Berkeley, and includes a subdural transceiver that’s under the skull. It also includes an external transceiver and CMOS chips overlaid over the cortex.

(Note: Karla Smith offers this correction to her spoken comment: EMF emissions (consistent with implants) were found at 20 sites on my body. I said over 20 because I also found wires in my ears, what appear to be implants in my ears and sinus/nostrils with a cheap endoscope.)

Karlascars1

Karla Smith, Public Comment, May 19, 2016/Speaking about scars from non-consensual surgery

You can see that I have surgery scars. It was non-consensual–and I implore you to just make it illegal, even if you don’t believe it. Even if you ignore the history. Even if you ignore our testimony. You have enough information to say No Waivers Of Informed Consent, period!” Karla Smith, Public Comment, SACHRP, May 18, 2016

 

SACHRP’s Response to Powerful Public Testimony of Current-Day Non-Consensual Experimentation by DoD/DOJ/Intelligence Agencies and Medical Professionals

Public comment on the first day (from Cait Ryan, Peter Rosenholm, Joan Dawson) was briefly acknowledged and thanked by SACHRP Chair, Dr. Jeffrey Botkin, who is Professor of Medical Ethics and Pediatrics at the University of Utah.

On the second and concluding day, after comment from Cassandra Lewis, Nola Alexander, and Karla Smith, Dr. Botkin expressly stated that SACHRP could not follow up on the “concerns” expressed regarding ongoing non-consensual research and experimentation in the nation:

The Committee very much appreciates the ongoing testimony of the public on this set of issues. SACHRP traditionally has not been a Committee that is geared to respond to allegations in the community and sort of take up specific cases, so our Committee isn’t well suited to follow up on the concerns that you express. So at a minimum, we are happy to serve as a platform to bring these concerns forward to the research community generally and certainly to OHRP and others.”

While public platforms are certainly needed for the public airing of information on covertly-conducted non-consensual experimentation, there are a few points to be made here.

ONE, SACHRP is the appointed committee of medical professionals working on making changes to the Common Rule, a Federal standard of protection for human subjects in medical or other experiments, both unclassified and classified (the latter as per Executive Order 12333).

Although many analysts scrutinizing Intelligence and Military use of human subjects, historically, have noted that these “covered entities” have traditionally made use of loopholes in the Common Rule to secretly experiment on citizens (MKULTRA, Project Shad, Tuskegee, ’40s radiation experiments), the Common Rule is still the primary Rule they are required to keep to, on paper.

There are no other Federal regulations governing their use of human subjects. There are no other Federal bodies apart from OHRP and SACHRP publicly working to finalize changes to this Common Federal Regulation, even if other “Federal players” are involved. SACHRP is formulated in fact as an Advisory Committee to the Secretary of Health.

That in itself should necessarily involve and include SACHRP, OHRP, and HHS–in responsibility and accountability, for any cases of non-consensual experimentation being reported by the public—which would point to exploitation by secretive agencies and entities, possibly using loopholes in regulation.

To say, “We will help make and oversee the Rule (working with other Federal agencies) to protect human subjects, but if anyone comes along and says they are being used as human subjects in experiments they didn’t sign up for (by other Federal agencies), we’ll respond with silence,” cannot be acceptable.

TWO, openly rendering the Common Rule impotent via exclusions, as per the current NPRM that SACHRP is working on, would imply active steps by SACHRP to approve, permit, and sanction these exclusions—language for which they stated was provided by a variety of “Federal players”.

Allegations of non-consensual neuro-experimentation/Directed-Energy Weapon (DEW) field testing therefore in the community, denoting extant and ongoing secret experimentation (utilizing extant Common Rule loopholes) by these very same entities that are seeking to keep current secret neuro-experimentation/DEW testing and operation secret, and any future human experimentation secret—while completely stripping every American citizen (and indeed, others worldwide, through joint Intelligence Agency agreements worldwide) of the basic, Nuremberg-protection of Informed Consent in all present and future-case scenarios–should most certainly be an issue of concern to this Committee which is currently seeking or agreeing to set up the very body of regulations that will ultimately further protect Intelligence/National Security/DOD agencies and DOJ from public scrutiny.

In other words, the American public as a whole is served ill by an evading of responsibility at the level of SACHRP and OHRP, and such a “passing of the buck,” leaving no-one responsible, leaves the field wide open for abuse of human subjects, marking perhaps exactly what the Intel/military agencies and the DOJ want: high protection of Intelligence agencies/Military/Justice and private interests who seek carte blanche to continue engaging in extremely damaging, pain-inducing, life-destroying classified research and deadly new weapons testing and operation on Americans without their consent.

It is not acceptable therefore—and the public should point this out—that the actual arbiters and makers of change, code, regulation, and policy, i.e., inclusive of Congress, aided by SACHRP and OHRP (or whatever other Commission works on the NPRM for the Common Rule or any new Human Subject Protection Code as hinted at by the new June 29-released National Academies report), or the public face thereof—if that is alone what they are–can eschew responsibility in the issue of addressing allegations of non-consensual experimentation in the community.

As public commenters pointed out, such allegations point inevitably to undisclosed or classified activities and “covered entities”.

It should stand to reason that it is precisely the regulatory body whether HHS/SACHRP/OHRP which seeks to allow classified activities–under the guise of “activities,” not research–the use of unconsenting humans covertly as subjects for any kind of experimentation or investigation, that is indeed responsible and should indeed be held accountable when humans step forward to describe covert experiments being performed non-consensually on their bodies.

Particularly since they are the ones seeking or agreeing to exonerate the “covered entities” of any responsibility themselves.

Questions of Accountability: These are no doubt issues other analysts can contribute more powerfully to. The question however that is being raised here must not be lost sight of: When people in civil society are preyed upon, experimented upon, secretly, by “covered entities,” who do they complain to, in our society? Who is the public body that will take and investigate allegations? (As commenters note, the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, supposedly set up to find out if research abuses were occurring today, chose to step away from responsibility–a very troubling issue in itself, which must be examined separately. If SACHRP steps away too, who is left?) What is the procedure for redress? Where is the Public Health attention to this issue? Particularly today, when directed-energy weapons are being field-tested—in Defense contracts—and are also operated “legally” by the Department of Justice as “non-lethal” surveillance technologies, and when multiple, wireless, and remote radiation and neuro-technologies are being developed?

What must also be doubly, triply, and continually underlined is: The allegations currently being brought forward are in fact allegations of torture, no less horrifying than the CIA’s torture of “Enhanced Interrogation” at Guantanamo. Shouldn’t our Public Health guardians be doubly, triply, and continually concerned then, about such allegations? Shouldn’t a mechanism exist in our society, to prevent and to stop such an overwhelming violation of basic human rights?

Intensive Concern about Informed Consent in Written Comments from Stated Victims of Ongoing Covert Non-Consensual Experimentation

A small cross-section from notes is presented here, of excerpted public comments from people describing themselves as victims or as related to victims of non-consensual experimentation, including possible victims, pointing to high concern among this group regarding the proposed exclusions for Intelligence Surveillance and Criminal Justice, and adding heft to the comments presented by activists at the meeting. The document linked here, Victim Stakeholder Summary Featuring Victim or TI Comments, offers a more comprehensive view, with notes from all victim comments, and comment numbers, for ease of look-up on Regulations.gov. For complete comments, please look online there, at Regulations.gov.

Also of note: These comments were not alluded to in the Executive Summary presented at the SACHRP meeting, but very clearly, in this day of increasing wireless/remote-control technologies, the fact that a cross-section of citizens would step forward to describe covert remote experimentation with measurable pulses of radiation on their persons should be infinite cause for alarm in any educated civil society.

As such, the unique recommendations these individuals make to change the language of the regulation—coming as it does from outside the “research community” of scientists and strategists writing this language, and representing the larger public most likely to be affected by this language—should be considered critically important.

Phyllis Cherubini (spouse of victim):

“Under Section 2.1 (Explicit Exclusion of Six Categories of Research Deemed Not Research), three items are troubling. These items relate to Criminal Justice Activities, Public Health Surveillance, and Intelligence Surveillance.

First of all, wording of Section 2.1 seems contradictory: research that is not deemed research. In reality, just because the knowledge gained from research from an entity like DARPA is classified, it is still research.

Second, the criminal justice system, the intelligence community (including the Department of Defense), and the public health community have a verifiable history of nonconsensual research:

To suggest that these groups are not currently involved in research that could endanger the lives of unsuspecting human subjects begs the question.

We know, for example, that the CIA is currently involved in research on humans in the United States from a November 15, 2011, letter sent by V. Sue Bromley, Associate Deputy Director of the CIA, to Amy Gutman, Chair of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues (reported in their Moral Science Report). (And covered above.)

Like other exempt organizations under the surveillance umbrella, this group should be held accountable. Disregard for human subject input concerning participation in a research project is criminal, not beneficent or just.” Phyllis Cherubini, Public Comment, NPRM

Linda Kmiotek:

The sixth category of excluded activities that will not be considered research involves surveys, interviews, surveillance activities and related analysis…” It seems as though the Bioethics Team is being asked to not call it research, thereby exempting persons from the Rule of Law as it exists today. I would like to put my two cents worth in and disagree and say that as I have no attorney, don’t have much time to read through all of the language, that justice and ethics are simple, and that those who have the power to inject more language into laws are only trying to muddy things.

May I please end this plea by saying that the attitude of blind pursuit: the worship of curiosity and building new weapons damn the consequences must end. All of Earth’s inhabitants may suffer as a result of mankind’s inventions.” Linda Kmiotek, Public Comment, NPRM

Barbara Guillette:

“We need to broaden the definition of research to mean an investigation, including research development, testing and evaluation. We need to broaden the definition of research subject to regulation to include all research. State and local entities should comply with the Common Rule particularly when public benefit or service programs involve research on human beings.

All federal and non-federal entities should be mandated to comply explicitly with the Common Rule.

I recommend dropping the term “both physical” from the definition of Intervention to reflect remote intervention.

The testing, use and abuse and manipulation of directed energy weapons against the people is callously destroying productive lives.

Why would they want to lower standards on using humans as research subjects? Need loopholes for Brain Initiative, Precision Medicine Initiative? – these programs will be using human subjects for testing. Objects – they are using human subjects for testing now.” Barbara Guillette, Public Comment, NPRM

Anonymous Anonymous:

In summary, your proposal ~ if it would become a final rule would cause the HHS to define persons as non-human, or to not recognize individuals as human persons with rights, when they are being subjected to “Intelligence Surveillance Activities” as defined by the proposed rule.

Shut down this proposal immediately. There should be no attempt to exclude people from having the protections extended by the Constitution or those which are commonly understood human rights. Anonymous Anonymous, Public Comment, NPRM

Steven White:

MK ULTRA

Steven White, Public Comment, NPRM: “a picture of me in stilwater, OK 1969 summer camp”

Steven White, who notes that he has been a victim for over 45 years, attached the photograph here, and states that he is the famous MK ULTRA boy (from this widely-known photograph, with sign “Strain All Urine”, notated “Unidentified white female between the ages of 8 and 10 yrs old.”). Directing readers to Marshall Thomas’ book, Monarch: The New Phoenix Program, he details a horrific experience of abuse along with other children, describing how people running the Phoenix program in Oklahoma went on to occupy positions of authority in Texas. He also says he was instrumental–as a child non-consensually exploited in experimentation–in the development of the M.I.N.D (Magnetic Integrated Neuron Duplicator) computer, which he says was in use at prisons across the country (and is being used) still today”, and which was also featured in a lawsuit by San Quentin prisoner John Ginter (about his electromagnetic mind targeting in 1967), and gave Cheryl Welsh the name Mindjustice.org for her website:

“The FOIA picture is wrongly listed as taken in 1961 when it was taken summer of 1969 in Stillwater, Oklahoma, in the children’s away-from-parents summer camp that was 1 + weeks long AGAIN. We were kidnapped, gassed, all of us were 5 years of age or under and we were raped every day in the semi truck trailers this picture was taken in….That is me and I am a BOY like I told the man taking the picture.

…(W)e are denied the right to live, freedom, justice and the American way, as well as a family.

…I also built the M.I.N.D. computer 1963-1968 in Tulsa Okla at a hospital lab I was left at for months at a time as a newborn to 5 year old…You must stop all testing on all humans including those in jail.” Steven White, Public Comment, NPRM

Diane Shomaker:

“Over fifty years after Project MKULTRA officially ended and 40 years after the Church Committee reported that the CIA and DOD conducted experiments on unwitting human beings, many US citizens and others are continuing to report they are victims of classified research including weapons testing. Many testified before the Bioethics Commission in 2011.

“…I’ve been a victim of electronic weapons for over 2 years. I have heard hundreds of other victims stories that are very similar to mine. I’m close to becoming crippled from being repeatedly attacked with these weapons. Cancer may be on it’s way or maybe I have it now from the constant radiation. I have spent over $8,000 on doctors & shielding. I have proof from doctors & licensed private detectives of these frequencies from weapons used on me.

Please help us end this slow, silent mass murder & get the weapons out of the hands of criminals.” Diane Shomaker, Public Comment, NPRM

Bella D:

“The United States is a state party to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and HAS ASSURED THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY THAT NON-CONSENSUAL RESEARCH IS BARRED BY THE U.S. CONSTITUTION AS WELL AS BY THE INTERNATIONAL COVENANT ON CIVIL AND POLITICAL RIGHTS. This is an opportunity to increase the protections for human subjects and enforce explicit existing laws governing human research under the ICCPR and the US Constitution. That is, absolute informed consent for all human experimentation and research, including and especially that which is deemed classified.” Bella D, Public Comment, NPRM

Eduardo Colon questions why the rule-making proposes excluding Defense Surveillance activities:

“I see this FR as an irony, as the Defense Department is seeking yet more control in extending what they can and cannot do in their involvement of human experimentation. This FR simply gives them greater legal means to justify non-consensual human experimentation, and considering the severe circumstances of thousands like myself, this current experiment includes torture.

I ask to look into the real purpose of this FR revision, to look at past human experimentation programs conducted by the DOD/CIA, and question why would this FR exclude human research protections based on defense surveillance activities…”

Exclusion (is being) used as a legal means to justify non-consensual human experimentation.” Eduardo Colon, Public Comment, NPRM

Jaami Ali:

“Priorities should be made to establish parity in education, housing, food, environment, job creation for all Americans so that people will not have barriers to self actualization. As major disparities do exist all over this country, misplaced anger and NAZI agendas are flourishing like wild flowers; as a result deals are being made with the US intelligence and military to apply covert tools of human experimentation on self-actualized women of color, such as myself.” Jaami Ali, Public Comment, NPRM

Christopher Knall:

In short, the use of mood, thought, and behavior altering devices on nonconsenting human beings is slavery, a violation of the most basic human right and the 14th Amendment. There are multiple examples where odd behavior of people who made the news may have been subjected to this or other methods more closely related to the old MKULTRA, MKOFTEN, DORMOUSE and other drug-related programs conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency during the Cold War.”

“Not only has the US Government failed to rein in the worst of human experimentation, but the methods and means that were once in the experimental phase have been used actively to curb rights in violation of several statutes including most notably Conspiracy Against Rights where, for example, directed energy weapons have been used for political purposes.

“See Donald Friedman’s FOIA. Mood, thought and behavior altering devices on non-consenting humans beings is a violation of 14th amendment. In other words, the use of these means and methods are themselves a National Security threat.

“Stating that the purposes are not for experimentation does not make the actions of agencies and private contractors any less experimental. We need to open the books on these practices AGAIN.” Christopher Knall, Public Comment, NPRM

Debra Poulsen stated that she spoke at the 2011 Bioethics Commission meeting in Washington, DC, yet was ignored:

But I don’t know what saddens me most: That there are still people doing unethical research in our Country, or that there are still U.S. citizens who will participate in this disgusting program against their fellow man.

Please do something at this point for all persons in unethical, unwilling experimentation programs. We are out there. We are speaking out. We are now asking again – please hear us. Debra Poulsen, Public Comment, NPRM

Margaret Zawodniak, in a 10-page comment with links and citations which can be found here, made reference to the recently-exposed collusion of the APA with CIA/DOD, and discussed, along with others (in a common comment), the findings of the Church Committee, regarding the historic collusion of the APA and many universities in MK ULTRA projects:

Recently, the American Psychological Association (APA) was found to have colluded with the CIA and the DOD to weaken the association’s ethical guidelines and allow psychologists to participate in the government’s “enhanced” interrogation programs post-911. The APA also had Top Secret clearance during Project MKULTRA, which was brought to public attention in 1975 by the Church Committee.

“Past abuses of unethical and non-consensual experimentation by U.S. military and intelligence agencies include behavior control Projects CHATTER, BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE, MKULTRA, MKSEARCH, MKNAOMI and others. They were often interwoven with radiation experiments and research on chemical and biological weapons. U.S. defense and intelligence agencies funded the research with a broad network of academic institutions such as Stanford, Cornell, Princeton, and John Hopkins; pharmaceutical companies such as Eli Lily; medical schools and hospitals; the American Psychological Association; the National Institutes of Health, the Veterans Administration Center, the U.S. Public Health Service and others.”

Reporting Church Committee findings, as well as the “Clinton Memo,” she recommended, for the Intelligence Surveillance exclusion:

…(Since) The ANPRM did not propose or discuss this exclusion …I recommend extending the comment period for this exclusion and implementing an Interim Final Rule which requires informed consent with no waiver or exceptions possible for all current and future classified human research, and Rulemaking.”

Regarding the Criminal Justice exclusion, she wrote:

The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is the research, development, and evaluation agency of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). In 2011, the November Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program (JNLWP) Newsletter included a statement from a senior Scientist at the Directed Energy Research Programs National Institute of Justice, that for more than 10 years, the NIJ and the JNLWP have shared research and expertise in developing and evaluating new less-lethal technology.

The worldwide nonlethal weapons market is expected to double by 2020 from 2013, according to a 2014 report by Dan Inbar, chairman and chief technology officer of Homeland Security Research Corp. He said the U.S. market is expected to follow that trend, increasing from $500 million in 2013 to about $930 million in 2020.

Because the DOJ is involved in the Non-Lethal Weapons Program; and because they have engaged in non-lethal weapons research; and because the non-lethal weapons market is expected to double from 2013 to 2020; and because many are reporting they are victims of classified research including weapons testing, criminal justice activities should be subjected to oversight, particularly classified research.”

The Common Rule should be written in such a manner that explicit exclusions are not necessary and should be avoided, particularly surveillance and criminal justice activities.” Margaret Zawodniak, Public Comment, NPRM

She also noted, regarding Precision Medicine:

DNA and blood can act as antennas because both are based on crystalline forms. If President Obama’s Precision Initiative uses a person’s DNA or blood to guide Directed Energy toward them, they will be using this technology for torture and killing instead of for anyone’s benefit. Secret technology is already being used against Americans. See CitizensAHT.org. People are being tortured and killed with electromagnetic weapons of all kinds. You have the power to protect as well as torture and kill. DO YOUR DUTY TO PROTECT HUMANS!” Margaret Zawodniak, Public Comment, NPRM

In an additional comment, she included a screenshot from Facebook of Dr. Hall’s testimony to the Bioethics Commission in Washington DC March 2011 (included below). (Some of her references and links are reproduced in the Related links section at end.)

Linda Costanzo:

“Many Americans are being hit with destructive frequencies that are causing diseases. Please investigate Directed Energy Weapons and what they are able to do to humans and animals. You need to help protect the citizens of this country. Radiation has been closely linked with cancer and we need protection.” Linda Costanzo, Public Comment, NPRM

Wayne DeBlaker, Sr.:

“The FBI are using the laws and rules of classified research to justify their treatment of suspects during investigations. The FBI Behavioral Sciences website states the FBI conducts research on criminals to learn about crime and its motives and environments.” Wayne DeBlaker, Sr., Public Comment, NPRM

Roger German:

“DO NOT lower standards on using humans as research subjects. Obama’s Brain Initiative, Precision Medicine Initiative – will require loopholes in human research rules – will be using human subjects. DNA as a Fractal Antenna – if Precision Initiative uses a person’s DNA or blood to guide Directed Energy toward them, they will be using this technology for torture and killing instead of for anyone’s benefit. I oppose relaxing of the rules; I would like to see rules strengthened for protection to human subjects and protection against crimes against humanity.” Roger German, Public Comment, NPRM

Ricardo Lopez:

“Will they own our bodies, DNA, too?

Re. Rebecca Skloot: Your Cells. Their Research. Your Permission? – DNA: I think, there are very important points that aren’t addressed either by the NY Times or this article. In fact, there is an underlying metaphor in that NY Times article about our cellphones doubling as our surveillance bracelets we even pay for, that is not being well exploited.

As we all know well, anything that the MIC (military industrial complex), politicians and police can mess with, they will ultimately use to abuse people. As part of the so-called patriot act, the U.S. government has access to all our medical records. Now, how exactly do our medical records relate to our individual civil and moral convictions?

Medical professionals such as APA members offer their scientific expertise to CIA / FBI and are engaging in torturing innocent people even though torture is illegal.

One’s individual’s right to bodily integrity is already a human right. Nowadays, we live under 24×7 surveillance, will they also own our bodies, DNA?

At the very least, consent will raise those issues to people’s consciousness.” Ricardo Lopez, Public Comment, NPRM

Karen Archer, who notes that she is the moderator of approximately 4,000-5,000 people reporting enough similar symptoms, and who have enough supporting documentation to be convincing that they are non-consensual human experimentees:

“(The experimentation is) effected with such energies as radar, microwave fields; (evidence/symptoms include) laser-like/other burns, bruises, surgical looking incision sites, blunt force trauma leaving bruises and broken capillaries and tissues, loss of control of different parts of their bodies, and some people have voices in their heads while others have a non-stop tinnitis.

This group has been in existence for ten years now and has grown exponentially since I found it in 2013 when I started experiencing unexplainable burns on my face—the group is an average, sane, non-violent, random sampling of population.

This is senseless torture. Please put safeguards in place to prevent the further spread of this horrific situation and to protect our children and grandchildren who could also someday be affected by these apparently covert or hijacked technologies.” Karen Archer, Public Comment, NPRM

Michael Yazdian who notes he is a Certified Public Accountant, attached a letter from Representative Jim Guest about electronic torture (imaged below), and stated he has an online petition with over 2700 signatures: Ban Electronic Warfare on Civilians”, where he has compiled lists of websites reporting non-consensual experimentation, Directed-Energy Weapons, and electronic torture, and where he writes:

“These unconscionable travesties are the ultimate crimes against humanity and we are all at risk. Please address the outcries of all survivors in ending all forms of electronic genocide and menticide. We are pleading for your help to be unleashed from these atrocious Psychotronic shackles. Please do not allow secrecy to enslave civility.” Michael Yazdian, Ban Electronic Warfare on Civilians

Norman Rabin, who submitted several supporting documents, including text of questions submitted at an earlier Dec 3-4, 2016 meeting (included below), and a compilation of public comments related to Intelligence Surveillance activities submitted to the ANRPM in 2011, mentioned, among other suggestions, the need for more public oversight of classified research:

“Contact office – for all classified human research, there shall exist an agency contact office. Even though informed consent under the Common Rule requires that the Human Subject be provided with contact information (for questions, or to report injury, or to withdraw from the research), human subjects of classified research should be afforded this extra safeguard, in the event that a person is subjected to classified human research without being provided with such information. All classified human research shall be registered at 1 or more offices from which the contact office shall be fully empowered to obtain at least as much contact information as is required by informed consent under the Common Rule.

Permanent records shall be kept for all classified human research. All records would be fully preserved until the human subject or legal survivor thereof is satisfied that justice has been obtained. Thereafter, detailed summary records of the human research shall be maintained for historical review, and governmental review, and for other Public purposes.”

4 Questions-for the SACHRP Meeting of December 3-4, 2015/Norman Rabin

Please excuse my having as many as 4 Specific Questions here, but the NPRM-subpart proposing to Exempt unspecified Intelligence Surveillance Activities seems to have been launched upon the Public with no prior mention or discussion of it whatsoever. Therefore, some specific answers from the Government are called for:

Question 1 of 4)

What was the motivation for the NPRM-subpart, which proposes to Exempt unspecified Intelligence Surveillance activities from the federal policy for Protection for Human Subjects? There were both: no Public Comments requesting such an Exemption in the Preliminary Rulemaking in 2011; and, there was no Public Discussion – enlighten us if I missed something – there was no Public Discussion of an Intelligence Surveillance Activities exemption at any of the SACHRP meetings since the 2011 Preliminary Rulemaking?

Where was there any prior Public Discussion of this? What’s the specific motivation for it being proposed?

Question 2 of 4)

Why is the Proposed Exemption so broad? [When spoken, I added: “It could have been specific and limited, but its not.”] It seems crafted to allow U.S. Intelligence to perform Non-Consensual Human Experimentation related to research into new Surveillance Technologies and/or methods? Human Research is research. And, purposeful U.S. Intelligence Surveillance activities within the U.S. are related to serious law enforcement purposes (including Counter Intelligence activities). By definition, Human Research is conducted for Human Research purposes.

Isn’t it obvious that the proposed exemption looks like U.S. Government approval of Non-Consensual Human Experimentation, for Research which studies or which develop Intelligence Surveillance Technologies and/or methods?

Question 3 of 4)

There’s already a known loophole in the federal Policy, so why is this exemption needed? As surely as President Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar, and as surely as the ACHRE [Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments] had many Legal Experts on their Committee and on their Staff, and as surely as they strongly Recommended that a known Existing Loophole allowing Non-Consensual Classified Human Experimentation be closed – remember the March 1997 Policy Change attempt by President Clinton, entitled: “Strengthened Protections for Human Subjects of Classified Research”. As surely as those facts, there is a known loophole which to this day still allows and encourages Non-Consensual Classified Human Experimentation.

So, my third question is: Why is the proposed Exemption needed if there’s already a Known Loophole? Currently, an Agency or Department head must approve a partial waiver or a total waiver of the Policy for Protection of Human Subjects. And, for Classified Human Research in particular, the Notice of Waiver is not required to be disclosed to the Public, such as in the Federal Register, because that would be an unauthorized disclosure of classified information.

So why is the proposed Exemption needed? The existing Loophole already allows them to waive the Policy, if they are able to obtain a waiver from the Department or Agency head.

Why does the NPRM-subpart want to take away the accountability and responsibility of the Agency or Department head, and of the authors of the Application for Waiver, and replace it with an Exemption, and license [encouragement], to disregard the Policy for Protection of Human Subjects, and the Ethics related to it?

Question 4 of 4)

Why did the Rulemaking authors ignore the 15 – 20 Public Comments to the ANPRM, Preliminary Rulemaking, in 2011, which exhibited 50’s [“fifties], or a few hundred, named alleged victims of Ongoing Non-Consensual Surveillance Technology related Human Experimentation?

And, Why did the Rulemaking authors ignore President Clinton’s prior Policy Change attempt, which sought to properly regulate all Classified Human Research, which includes ‘Intelligence Surveillance Related Classified Research’? Norman Rabin, Public Comment, NPRM

Julie Ponder who notes that she is a parolee, states that she is a 15-year victim abused with electronic surveillance by the Department of Corrections and State Intelligence in both Colorado and California:

“I am opposed to passing proposed Common Rule; (it would) make human torture legal.

I am against non-consensual experimentation – informed consent should be required.

I am against human surveillance with psychotronic weapons for experimental purposes; (it inflicts) physical torture, mind control, mind reading, v2k, burn, rape etc – remotely.

It is my understanding that the invention and original uses of these electronic surveillance technologies were for military purposes and national security against terrorism. Now it is being abused in the USA on mental health patients, prisoners being incarcerated, whistle blowers, high profile criminal cases, and your average citizen.

It is being used by the Department of Corrections, State Intelligence, the military, NSA, CIA, and more. It is out of control.

These agencies are abusing each other with (these) technologies, abusing USA citizens, and people in other countries. The legislature should be making laws outlawing the use of surveillance technologies and human experimentation, not making conditions for its use. This is my comment.” Julie Ponder, Public Comment, NPRM

Tyrone Dew who attached Dr. Duncan’s The Executive Summary: Neuropsychological and Electronic No-Touch Torture Report – Numerated Torture Methods for Interrogation and Behavior Modification – A comparison between physical and no-touch torture tactics:

“Mass shooters Aaron Alexis and Myron May are victims of Directed Energy attacks. Credible sources are exposing Direct Energy Non-consensual experimentation.” Tyrone Dew, Public Comment, NPRM

Melanie Garton included an excerpt sourced from https://www.icrc.org/customary-ihl/eng/docs/v1_rul_rule156 and stated that the (non-consensual human experimentation she has experienced) were war crimes, violations of humanitarian law. She experiences spying, gang stalking –it leaves her incapacitated.

“(This is) inhumane and psychological murder and torture of innocent people.” Melanie Garton, Public Comment, NPRM

Todd Giffen who identified himself as a 8-year victim, included several attachments and links (some included in Resources at end), inclusive of letter text from Dr. Duncan and letter text from Dr. Duncan to Dr. Farber, as well as letters of support, evaluations, and Dr. Duncan’s No-Touch Torture report:

“Government, corporations, private, public entities, law enforcement, hospitals and college universities, military and foreign countries should be barred from touching humans or animals for any purpose.

I myself have had satellite/over horizon radar interferometry/ electronic warfare used to irradiate and blast my body to a pulp/beam audio and images into my brain now for 8 years and there are thousands of complainants.

This is a violation of Kyllo v United States and the 4th amendment. In Eugene, Oregon the Navy was even publicly exposed as irradiating citizens.” Todd Giffen, Public Comment, NPRM

(Please note, this is only a representative sampling. There are many other necessary, thought-provoking, and incisive comments from people claiming subjection to non-consensual experimentation that the public should read: please visit the links above for the Summary of Victim Comments.)

Informed Consent in Classified Research: Special Mention of the Clinton Memo

Of special relevance: Several commenters mentioned the 1997 Clinton Administrative Order categorically disallowing waivers of Informed Consent in classified research. Linda Kmiotek, in a written comment, identifying herself as a victim of undisclosed, possibly Classified Research experimentation, reminded the Committee of previous Federal attempts to strengthen human subject protections in classified research:

In October 1995, the Final Report of the Advisory Committee on Human Radiation Experiments recommended “The adoption of Federal Policy requiring the informed consent of all human subjects of classified research and the requirement not be subject to exemption or waiver. Whereby in March 27, 1997, President Clinton issued an Administrative Order, Strengthened Protections for Human Subjects of Classified Research” [Federal Register, May 13, 1997, pp.26367-26372] For 18 years since that attempted rule making, an NPRM supposedly was never completed. Without hesitation, this Federal Policy should be implemented. We need more protections not less.” Linda Kmiotek, Public Comment, NPRM

Karla Smith, in her joint public comment for herself and Norman Rabin at SACHRP noted the Department of Energy’s recent intent to keep to the requirements for Informed Consent in the Clinton Memo, where legal counsel at the DOE stated the Memo still had legal effect:

“A recent legal opinion in 2015, obtained by the legal counsel of the U.S. Department of Energy, stated that the 1997 Clinton Memo still had legal effect. Earlier this year the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced its intent to adopt such a regulation with minor adjustments…

doeKarla2

Karla Smith/Public Comment, NPRM, May 19/Presenting DOE’s compliance with the Clinton Memo

On January 21, 2016 the DOE approved Notice 443.1 which states that supplemental requirements and responsibilities for classified human subjects research (HSR) are necessary to ensure compliance with Presidential Memorandum, Strengthened Protections for Human Subjects of Classified Research, dated March 27, 1997, commonly referred to as the “Clinton Memo,” which the DOE and NNSA Offices of General Counsel determined is in effect and applicable to DOE.

“Requirement 4.a.3 states “No waiver of informed consent will be granted.

“It is our hope that OHRP and HHS will take the initiative for other government agencies which comply with the Common Rule and follow the Department of Energy’s lead, and find that supplemental requirements and protections and responsibilities for classified human subjects research are necessary to ensure compliance with the Clinton Memo, and to fulfill the legal requirements and spirit of federal rulemaking.”

In Conclusion: The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. (Nuremberg Code)

Rebecca Skloot, in her December 2015 op-ed in the New York Times on the issue of consent in the case of remaindered biospecimens, an issue that was indeed discussed by SACHRP–in contrast to the Intelligence Surveillance exclusions, which was not—quoted from an optimistic researcher possibly dizzy from Federal funding, who sought to call human subjects “participants in research,” which appears to be a fashionable term today in the research community, and pointed out that Consent is the only way any human can be said to “participate” in research:

In announcing plans for the $215 million Precision Medicine Initiative, which he sees as a model for other future research, Dr. Collins said, “Participants will be partners in research, not subjects.” But people can be partners only if they know they’re participating.” Rebecca Skloot: Your Cells. Their Research. Your Permission?

Alexandra Franco, JD: “Researchers are not entitled to conduct research; research is a privilege.”

This comment by Alexandra Franco, J.D. (2015, Institute for Science, Law and Technology [of] the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Chicago-Kent College of Law), draws our attention once more to the Nuremberg Code, and questions the very nature of research that uses human subjects.

The rule of informed consent, its underlying principle of respecting people’s autonomous decision-making power and right to refuse to participate in research come from the troubled past of human subject experimentation of which the Nazi experiments are one of its most harrowing episodes.

“In fact, the Common Rule derives its principles from the Nuremberg Code, which resulted from the Nuremberg Trials. The Nuremberg Code states from the get-go: “the voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.”

“It is not hard to understand why it would be; the Nazi experiments were forcibly performed on subjects who did not have any ability to escape the atrocities that were being done to them in the name of research.

“The Nuremberg Trials that followed the end of the Nazi Holocaust set in writing what the essential elements of ethical research should be to prevent such atrocities from happening again.

“… While the Common Rule is denounced as “cumbersome and outdated” in light of the changes in research technology, we must take into consideration that the same flaws in human nature which prompted the creation of the Nuremberg Code remain unchanged.

“Therefore, the public’s desire for control over their own body as well as the data and samples deriving therefrom, should be the departing point of any changes to the Common Rule.

“People should be able to give full informed consent before researchers can use their data or biological samples for research purposes.

“Researchers are not entitled to conduct research; research is a privilege which the medical and scientific community enjoys as a result of people’s desire to willingly, intentionally and knowingly, give a little part of themselves for the betterment of mankind.” Alexandra Franco, J.D., Public Comment, NPRM

Anonymous Anonymous: “Nothing to do with National Security but a lot to do with Torture—and Torture is Unconstitutional”

To close, this comment by Anonymous Anonymous reminds us why the United States of America, which often decries the records of other countries in their violations of human rights, should care about Informed Consent, and why the Common Rule should not exclude Intelligence or military agencies or the DOJ from requiring Informed Consent:

“The Common Rule has to be based on the Constitution which is the blueprint of our democracy.

“No government agency or department should have the right to waive applicability of all or part of the Common Rule (including Informed Consent). The arbitrary use of such technologies has nothing to do with national security but a lot to do with torture, and torture is unconstitutional.

“It is necessary to send a strong message that our Constitution and human rights matter in America. Otherwise America is no better than China and other countries that America criticizes for not enforcing human rights.” Anonymous Anonymous, Public Comment, NPRM

Classified Research Continually Funded Although Public Continually Reports Inhumane Experimentation

We are experiencing a silent crisis of the Constitution and our basic human rights in the US today.

KarlaSubdural1

Karla Smith, Public Comment, May 19, 2016/Speaking about subdural neuro-implants

Karla Smith notes in a separate comment,”Congress provides billions of dollars in funding to intelligence and defense entities which fund classified research.”

When people are coming forward to report barbaric experimentation on their bodies while such “covered” research is being funded, it is time to openly challenge all aspects of such funding and research, hold the “covered entities” fully accountable, and reinstate basic protections for all citizens by fully requiring Informed Consent in all research, by all agencies and organizations, for whatever purpose, and reinstate the lost protections of the Nuremberg Code in our midst.

That is the message these public comments overwhelmingly convey.

Please take the time to watch the video coverage of the powerful and historic testimony given at SACHRP, and to read further all comments about non-consensual experimentation posted. Our future as a nation with a sense of decency, humanity, and moral principles relies ultimately on our own individual humanity, and how we each choose to respond to the devastating testimony of modern-day non-consensual human experimentation contained herein.

Linda Bressendorf: Latest Appeal to the United Nations

Re-posted, with thanks, from Linda Bressendorf’s petition update at Change.org, please visit there to sign and to send your own letter to the UN, as requested, if you can understand that humanity as a whole is facing a tremendous threat today, from covert and deadly neurotechnology weapons which are being deployed currently against people worldwide–including in the United States of America–as covert surveillance methods and covert, non-consensual military/Intelligence neuro-experimentation.

PUT AN EMERGENCY ORDER IN PLACE, AND FOLLOW UP WITH SUBSEQUENT LEGISLATION TO END ABUSES INVOLVING “GANG-STALKING,” “ELECTRONIC HARASSMENT,” AND “DIRECT ENERGY WEAPONS.”

Included below her letter are natural healing remedies she is passing on, for all those who are being wrongfully targeted and inhumanely subjected to barbaric surveillance with covert directed-energy and covert, non-consensual neuro-weapon experimentation–an incredible travesty of justice and total failure of civil behavior taking place silently in our midst today, while the world watches, and does nothing–a situation that has to change, if humans wish to lay claim to their humanity.

Latest Appeal to the United Nations

 
Linda Bressendorf

Henrico, VA

Jul 2, 2016 — May God have mercy on the lost souls in charge of operations at the United Nations; an organization created in part to preserve the human rights of every person on this planet.

However, the UN has yet to assist a singled-out part of the population around the world. Day in and day out, these citizens are tortured and tormented beyond human comprehension. These innocent persons are relentlessly hunted down in what is a systematic, highly orchestrated, military-type operation which ends with them being eliminated from the face of the earth or completely isolated from the rest of society.

The only thing these individuals are guilty of is living their lives the way they see fit. In other words, they’re guilty of simply breathing air. These assaults/attacks are ruthlessly carried out using high energy weapons that directly target the human mind and body; penetrating human tissue and affecting the very molecular structure of the person.

The saddest and most disturbing part of this whole ordeal is that anyone placed in a position that can help us, has continuously refused our pleas.

The United Nations has received probably thousands of complaints over the years and still refuses to take a stand. They cowardly hide behind the ridiculous notion that these complainants are suffering from mental illness.

Members of the United Nations are in positions which call for them to have common sense, extensive knowledge, and possess logical thinking. How could they come to such an absurd assumption, and for such a long period of time? I have never heard of the United Nations lifting so much as a finger to help a targeted individual. Something’s rotten in the state of Denmark, and it stinks to high heaven.

During some of my time as a Targeted Individual, even while under severe attack; I managed to do research of my own. I don’t proclaim to have all the answers, but what I have learned has awakened me to ugly truths I never imagined or wanted to believe existed. I am now a much more enlightened individual, aware of the world we live in.

There is a secret global hierarchy that’s in existence. The select few at the top of this hierarchy retain power and control of the world and most of the people in it. The ones at the bottom are the rest of the population, the average citizens, who are kept in line (easily led or coerced by the ones at the top).

Those at the top consist of: The Mega Rich and Powerful known as (The Power Elite), Parts of the World Governments and Military, Large Corporations and Secret Societies. Professionals such as Psychiatrists, Medical Doctors, Scientists, Engineers, Physicists, Biologists, Philosophers, Computer Programmers, and Politicians are bought and paid for by The Power Elite.

Those at the top, who I’ll now refer to as-“The Powers That Be,” control and run the Media, deciding what stories will or will not be disclosed to the public. They control and run the Banking and Financial Institutions and many of the World’s Largest Corporations. These “Powers That Be,” operate in the dark, shielded behind an iron curtain, and away from the prying eyes of the public. They appear to be untouchable, but it’s all just an illusion that can vanish at any time.

The “Powers That Be,” is a decade’s long establishment that may be responsible for most of the world’s deadliest and disastrous tragedies. They are a menace to humanity, and the world would be a much better and safer place if they weren’t in existence.

Most targeted individuals, not all, are lacking financial resources, may be taking mind-altering drugs (Legal or Illegal) or are persons with chronic illness, which leaves their bodies and minds compromised in some way. Also, most targeted individuals appear to be-Independent Thinkers, Non-Conformists, and Individualists (unique in their thinking compared to the rest of the population).

What I didn’t know before my research is that there is an even more complex and diabolical reason we are hunted like animals, in danger of extinction. And that reason lies within our DNA structure.

At some point in time, “The Powers That Be,” came upon knowledge that some human beings possess qualities not inherent in the rest of the population. These qualities are known as: “High States of Consciousness.”

The same people with these High States of Consciousness carry within them an evolutionary-12 Strand DNA; which also stands apart from the rest of the population. They are Multi-Dimensional persons capable of deep Spiritual Awakening. This is what it all comes down to. This is the very reason people around the world are being maligned in such a cruel and brutal way. The people possessing these qualities are- (the Targeted Individuals of the World).

“The Powers That Be,” are shaking in their boots; in fear of losing power and control over the masses, and are willing to sink to the darkest depths of depravity to keep this from happening. They are afraid that those of us with these Higher States of Consciousness will somehow have an effect on the rest of the population.

They are afraid we will bring enlightenment and awareness to the masses, causing them to wake-up and see the truth for what it is. This could possibly cause a revolution and the toppling of their kingdom.

Ironically, experiments are currently on the way in an all-out effort to produce Supercomputers that have the same qualities I’ve been discussing. They are being referred to as- Spiritual Machines.

These Supercomputers will be enabled with High States of Consciousness, and possess a Human Soul/Spirit. They will be Multi-Dimensional, and they promise immortality to persons learning to shift their consciousness from one dimension to another. They are slated for release in the year “2045.”

There lies a possibility out there that a separate group exists carrying out non-consensual experiments on Targeted Individuals for research related to these so called: “Spiritual Machines.” What better way to learn and duplicate these unique qualities than to extensively examine the source?

I am awakened to the fact that certain members of The United Nations have chosen to align themselves with “The Powers That Be.” It is downright disgusting to think that these devils freely walk the halls of the UN.

There is a room located on UN premises, where a mysterious painting hangs. Some have pointed out that some of the symbols in the painting resemble symbols commonly used by “The Powers That Be.” These power-driven control freaks are sure that their plan for world domination will be a successful one. They are delusional, believing their own hype. They are playing God, destroying lives at will.

God exists as the highest form of energy in the Universe. He created the world for all to inhabit, not just a select few. The world is not now, or will ever be for sale.

FYI United Nations: Are you aware of the Treaty Of 1967? This treaty required that states parties not place in orbit around the earth, any objects carrying nuclear weapons or any other kinds of Weapons of Mass Destruction, install such weapons on celestial bodies, or station such weapons in outer space in any other manner. This is what constitutes: “Satellite-Harassment.”

The Strategic Defense Initiative, established under President Reagan, required that this treaty be modified. Satellite Harassment is the means by which many Targeted Individuals are being mercilessly tortured and tormented. I am clueless as to exactly what changes were made to the treaty, but there’s obviously a loophole somewhere in it which may allow for this type of harassment. The “Treaty of 1967” needs to be closely examined and modified once more to allow for closure of this loophole.

Are you also aware that “Directed-Energy Weapons,” which target the Central Nervous System, and cause Neurophysiological Disorders may violate certain Conventional Weapons Convention of 1980? Weapons that go beyond non-lethal intentions, and cause superfluous injury or unnecessary suffering may also violate the Protocol I to the Geneva Conventions of 1977.

I shall take it upon myself to say that parts of the United Nations are very well aware of the above measures being put in place. Yet they act stupefied when they receive numerous complaints on the matter. They cry-mental illness, just as much as the little boy that cried wolf. Persons in the UN having knowledge of this inhumanity are also very much aware that targeted individuals are not suffering from mental illness. Someone’s obviously being paid a hefty price to look the other way, and has been for years.

It’s unfortunate that money and power are what’s most important in this world. As a little girl, my mum would occasionally say this to me: “The love of money is at the root of all -Evil.” At the time, I couldn’t possibly comprehend what she was saying. I have never been more aware of this saying than I am at this time in my life. It’s as though she had foresight of the beast that awaited me in my future. One so ferocious and hungry, it would try everything in its power to devour my soul, my very being.

The “Powers That Be” and anyone that aligns him or herself with this vapid bunch are in for a rude awakening when the rest of the world learns the absolute truth. I’ll close this letter the same as I started- “May God have Mercy on Our Souls.”

Sincerely,
Linda Bressendorff- Christopher

“HOPE”

Jul 11, 2016 — To those Targeted Individuals who are relentlessly tortured via–Voice to Skull, Remote Neural Monitoring (Satellite Terrorism), and those whose minds and bodies are under attack from Directed-Energy Weapons.

We are assaulted daily by dark and destructive energies meant to keep us in a constant state of fear, anger, sadness, despair, hopelessness.

Do not give in to these negative emotions. Instead, surround yourself with positive energies, and (as hard as it may be) try to remain positive. Listed below are possible remedies which focus on eliminating dark and destructive energies from our environment. They are worth giving a try……
