John W. Whitehead/The Rutherford Institute: “War is a Grisly Business, a Horror of Epic Proportions”

Re-posted with thanks from The Rutherford Institute, an opening excerpt from John Whitehead’s commentary on war for Memorial Day, reminding us about the horrors and many pointless deaths and injuries of war, and offering a list of war films to watch, exploring the psychological, surreal, social, managerial and other aspects of war. (Just commentary below, please visit there for the list.)

Memorializing the Horrors of War with 10 Must-See War Films

By John W. Whitehead
May 27, 2016

“The horror… the horror…”—Apocalypse Now (1979)

“You can’t show war as it really is on the screen, with all the blood and gore. Perhaps it would be better if you could fire real shots over the audience’s head every night, you know, and have actual casualties in the theater.”—Sam Fuller, film director and author

Hiroshima, 6 agosto 1945: lo scoppio della bomba atomicaNearly 71 years ago, the United States unleashed atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing more than 200,000 individuals, many of whom were civilians.

Fast forward to the present day, and President Obama—the antiwar candidate and Nobel Peace Prize winner who has waged war longer than any American president and whose legacy includes targeted-drone killings and at least 1.3 million lives lost to the U.S.-led war on terror—is paying lip service to the victims of America’s nuclear carnage, all the while continuing to feed the war machine.

America has long had a penchant for endless wars that empty our national coffers while fattening those of the military industrial complex. Since 9/11, we’ve spent more than $1.6 trillion to wage wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Adding in our military efforts in Pakistan, as well as the lifetime price of health care for disabled veterans and interest on the national debt, that cost rises to $4.4 trillion. Even now, the war drums are sounding as Obama prepares to deploy U.S. troops on a long-term mission to Libya and continues to police the rest of the world with more than 1.3 million U.S. troops being stationed at roughly 1000 military bases in over 150 countries.

To this end, as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, Americans are fed a steady diet of pro-war propaganda that keeps them content to wave flags with patriotic fervor and less inclined to look too closely at the mounting body counts, the ruined lives, the ravaged countries, the blowback arising from ill-advised targeted-drone killings and bombing campaigns in foreign lands, and the transformation of our own homeland into a warzone.

Nowhere is this double-edged irony more apparent than during military holidays such as Memorial Day, when we get treated to a generous serving of praise and grandstanding by politicians, corporations and others with similarly self-serving motives eager to go on record as being pro-military.

Yet war is a grisly business, a horror of epic proportions. In terms of human carnage alone, war’s devastation is staggering. For example, it is estimated that approximately 231 million people died worldwide during the wars of the 20th century. This figure does not take into account the walking wounded—both physically and psychologically—who “survive” war.

War drives the American police state. The military-industrial complex is the world’s largest employer. War sustains our way of life while killing us at the same time. As Pulitzer Prize-winning war correspondent and author Chris Hedges observes:

War is like a poison. And just as a cancer patient must at times ingest a poison to fight off a disease, so there are times in a society when we must ingest the poison of war to survive. But what we must understand is that just as the disease can kill us, so can the poison. If we don’t understand what war is, how it perverts us, how it corrupts us, how it dehumanizes us, how it ultimately invites us to our own self-annihilation, then we can become the victim of war itself.

War also entertains us with its carnage, its killing fields, its thrills and chills and bloodied battles set to music and memorialized in books, on television, in video games, and in superhero films and blockbuster Hollywood movies financed in part by the military.

War has become a centerpiece of American entertainment culture, most prevalent in war movies.

War movies deal in the extremes of human behavior. The best films address not only destruction on a vast scale but also plumb the depths of humanity’s response to the grotesque horror of war. They present human conflict in its most bizarre conditions—where men and women caught in the perilous straits of death perform feats of noble sacrifice or dig into the dark battalions of cowardice.

War films also provide viewers with a way to vicariously experience combat, but the great ones are not merely vehicles for escapism. Instead, they provide a source of inspiration, while touching upon the fundamental issues at work in wartime scenarios.”

Abby Martin/The Empire Files: 100 Years of US Troops Used as Lab Rats

Re-posted from Telesur English, with many thanks.  A timely reminder from intrepid journalist Abby Martin of The Empire Files at Telesur of the many ways the US Government has abused and exploited military servicemen and women since the time of WWII by enrolling them non-consensually in classified, experimentation programs for the testing of deadly bio-weapons, chemical weapons, physical weapons, and then refusing them medical care for harm caused. These have included radiation exposure, lobotomies, Sarin gas, Agent Orange, depleted uranium shells.

Hard-hitting and panoramic, this overview with historic war footage offers grim evidence of long-lasting US Government policies of private exploitation and abuse of soldiers propped up by public facades of gratitude for their service–exploitation as reported by many in the military that continues today. Which raises the question: who or what are we supporting when asked to “support the troops”?

For the whole article, please visit Telesur. Excerpt and video below.

“There was never any accountability for destroying the lives and minds of thousands of soldiers,” Martin explains.
 
The abuse extended from the end of WWI to the recent wars on Iraq.

WATCH: The Empire Files: Used & Betrayed – 100 Years of US Troops as Lab Rats

U.S. government denies 80 percent of insurance claims from veterans of the first war on Iraq, even though one similar program cost less than a third of a warplane. An estimated 250,000 servicemen are expected to endure lasting effects from their service there.

Hundreds of thousands of U.S. soldiers were also exposed to Sarin gas during the two wars, not because the Iraqi army used it, but because they were ordered to destroy stockpiles and then breathed it.

Officers told their subordinates to disregard the alarms meant to inform them it was time to evacuate. The Department of Defense admitted in 2015 what had happened.

Depleted uranium shells, intended to maximize destruction, have also poisoned both civilians and servicemen in Iraq and Afghanistan. Cancer rates in Iraq skyrocketed after the invasions, as did rates of birth defects in hospitals in Fallujah, one of the cities hardest-hit by these toxic shells.

Politicians espousing the mantra of “support the troops” are not the friends of servicemen, Martin claims, “but their greatest enemy.”

Judge Anna von Reitz: Letter to Pope Francis, Memorial Day 2016

Re-posted with many thanks to Judge Anna, from Facebook.  A reminder to Pope Francis: “As the single largest employer of all lawyers and attorneys worldwide as well as inheritor of the copyrights and trademarks of the statutory law, you are uniquely responsible for this continuing situation and the related abuses.

On This Day: D-Day begins as Allies launch largest seaborne invasion ...

Beaches of Normandy/D-Day

“Nobody can ever repay the sacrifices made at Dunkirk and Normandy and Hiroshima and Treblinka, but we can all certainly learn our lessons. The Americans have learned.

No other nation has to worry about what they owe us, except the moral obligation to support us when we are right and to assist us now by fully recognizing the fact that the United States Congress has been operating a rogue secondary government and promoting a confusion between that government and our lawful government.

…The American people are still provably the Priority Creditors of the entire planet. We have not abandoned our position nor our property assets. We have paid the piper and what we say has to hold, or all the laws of commerce and all the laws of nations fail. So what do we say?

Neither we nor the rest of the world should suffer for the sake of greed, lies, and delusions. A cupcake is a cupcake and a crook is a crook.”

Letter to Pope Francis– Memorial Day 2016

Anna von Reitz
Most Beloved Francis,

The lawyers have been bill collectors for the Roman Pontiff since the second century BC. Please redirect them with respect to their activities on American soil.

As you can see from our attached Judicial Notice and Order to Cease and Desist forwarded to the World Court – the Hague and the Office of the Special Prosecutor, they have been running private corporate administrative tribunals as if they were lawful public courts, employing Glossa to misrepresent and mischaracterize living Americans as corporate “persons” and otherwise running amok on our soil.

As the single largest employer of all lawyers and attorneys worldwide as well as inheritor of the copyrights and trademarks of the statutory law, you are uniquely responsible for this continuing situation and the related abuses.

As has already been established by the Vatican Chancery Court, people born on the land of the American organic states are the lawful beneficiaries of the land and no one may claim otherwise.

As has also been established by the Treaty of Westminster 1794 and the Treaty of Ghent 1814 we are also beneficiaries of the international jurisdiction of the sea “in perpetuity”.

As Pope Benedict XVI has fully admitted, the secret Treaty of Verona of 1822 was an egregious Breach of Trust, an illegal, unlawful, and immoral act by the then-Pope and the British Monarch, owed nothing but confession, repudiation and correction.

We call upon you to exert your full empowerment as the ultimate comptroller of the statutory law creating all corporations on Earth and your office as the Roman Pontiff to correct the operations of the American Bar Association, the International Bar Association, the International Monetary Fund, the Federal Reserve, the UNITED STATES, (INC.), and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, (INC.), the UN Corporation, and all their franchises and affiliates including the corporation calling itself the GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES and the PENTAGON.

These entities have functioned as crime syndicates on our shores and have been grossly misdirected by both the British and French Governments and various Vatican operatives in the past and present. This entire mess must be cleaned up, and it cannot be accomplished by pretending that the Creditors are Debtors, via the use of scapegoats, or the avoidance of the facts.

Your efforts of the Motu Proprio of July 11, 2013 are much appreciated. Your decision to give the miscreants three years to clean up their acts and come into compliance with their charters has, as we feared, only encouraged them to redouble their acts of criminality, but we have nonetheless waited out the grace period.

The American people are owed the guarantees of their actual Constitution— what the Vatican calls our “Original Equity Contract”— and we have acted properly to claim our property assets, have issued our Sovereign Letters Patent, have established our Joint Declaration of Sovereignty together with the Federal Indigenous Nations preserving our “Original Equity Contract” and have properly asked you in your capacity as Trustee to fascilitate the settlement of the so-called United States National Debt by application of our National Credit to balance the books. We have likewise directed the Board of Governors of the Bank for International Settlements regarding our Will.

May we now consider these issues done and settled?

We also understand the embarrassment of the British, French, Japanese, Germany, and many other national governments with respect to the debts owed to the American people. These debts arising out of the need to rebuild after the Second World War together with the interest accrued would indeed be insurmountable and would result in the enslavement of most of the world if we were to insist on repayment. We understand that this concern—the gross indebtedness of the world— has been the entire motivation behind the apparent international collusion against our lawful government.

Let us ask how much a life is worth and who will hazard to pay it back?

While distracted by the chicanery of international bankers and the digits accruing on ledgers most of the world has been deluded into believing what we can only describe as “lies we have told ourselves”. We have not succumbed to such silliness.

We assert that we cannot give life and have no right to take it. We assert that the value of even one life is beyond the ability of the world to repay. We assert that the essence of a good life is to have all that we truly need, to possess some of the things we merely want, to love and to be loved, to serve a noble purpose, to have a home and to live at peace. We assert that this is well-within the ability of each of us to achieve and within the Earth’s ability to sustain for a long time into the future.

A higher law than any “law” of commerce is called for at this time, a law that requires each man of every faith and nation to come to terms with our actual nature and our actual needs.

We assert that money is nothing but a tool, like a shovel or a rake, which everyone must have access to use to fulfill both their daily needs to pay for food, fuel, housing, water, safe sanitation and similar needs— and their dreams. Depriving people of money so as to make it a false god is a crime that renders us all in the ridiculous position of worshiping something of our own creation, as if we baked a cupcake and then bowed down to it.

The accumulation of debt and the holding of debt has to cease and the forgiveness of debt must commence. Let it begin with the American people and their lawful government. We didn’t give in order to commit usury against everyone else— as the “United States” defined as the “territories and District of Columbia” has done.

We gave to give, to restore, to help. We gave of our bodies in war and in peace. We gave of our natural resources, too. We did it to assist other nations to rebuild and have all that they need to live good lives according to their own dreams and traditions—not to ensnare them in a web of insurmountable debt.

Nobody can ever repay the sacrifices made at Dunkirk and Normandy and Hiroshima and Treblinka, but we can all certainly learn our lessons. The Americans have learned.

No other nation has to worry about what they owe us, except the moral obligation to support us when we are right and to assist us now by fully recognizing the fact that the United States Congress has been operating a rogue secondary government and promoting a confusion between that government and our lawful government.

The Federal United States composed of the “territories and District of Columbia” and doing business as the United States of America (Minor) is a separate entity from The United States of America (Major). The United States Congress has operated this kingdom made of paper (and a few stray islands) to defraud the American people and the entire rest of the world via deceit based on similar names.

We are not the problem. We have been the victims of this mischaracterization and misrepresentation and we have suffered along with the rest of the world.

This deceit has been promoted by international banking cartels, corrupt politicians, and senior members of the American and International Bar Associations, some of whom have sought refuge in Mainland China when confronted with the severity of their criminality.

This system was pioneered in China many centuries ago, so it has now come full circle and needs to be destroyed by the same people who first discerned the principle underlying it— which is summed up by the Chinese proverb: “If you collect the money, you disperse the people. If you disperse the money, you collect the people”.

The American people are still provably the Priority Creditors of the entire planet. We have not abandoned our position nor our property assets. We have paid the piper and what we say has to hold, or all the laws of commerce and all the laws of nations fail. So what do we say?

Neither we nor the rest of the world should suffer for the sake of greed, lies, and delusions. A cupcake is a cupcake and a crook is a crook.

We call upon you and all world leaders to honor our contributions and inheritance— our land, our homes, our lives, our public and organic law—-as we have honored theirs, and draw the line between us and the Federal United States which has caused all the problems, racked up all the debts, and engaged in all these crimes against us and other nations.

Judge Anna von Reitz: How To Use The Glossa Judicial Notice and Order

Re-posted from Facebook, with many thanks to Judge Anna. Relates to the previous post, Memorial Day–A Fitting Order Released.

(Emphases below mine.)

***

How To Use The Glossa Judicial Notice and Order

Anna von Reitz

1. Realize that the “United States” is a federation of actual nation-states. The states of the land not the federal “government” are the actual sovereign nations. You receive your nationality at birth as a Nevadan, Californian, Virginian, etc. Your nationality and your sovereignty cannot be taken away from you or changed unless you willfully throw it away. The Founders knew this and protected your nationality

The Naturalization Act of 1802, Seventh Congress, Session 1, Chapter 28, Sections 1-4, April 14, 1802 sets forth the exact requirements necessary for anyone born in an American state to become a United States Citizen. Period.

While the “United States” has always allowed Dual Citizenship— that is, has allowed its “Citizens” to claim both State and Federal Citizenship at the same time, the States of the Union make no such allowance. From the standpoint of the organic states, you are either out or you are in.

So you have to make up your mind whether you are a man standing on your native land or a corporate fugitive merely “residing” here in a “Federal State of State” franchise existing only on paper.

Most of us will agree that we are Virginians standing on the land of Virginia or Wisconsinites standing on the land of Wisconsin, and all of us can ask for proof that we ever completed the steps necessary to become United States Citizens?

From the standpoint of the States of the Union, no such steps have been taken and no such “United States Citizenship” can be presumed absent such knowing and public declaration and action. Also from the standpoint of the States of the Union no such thing as a “citizen of the United States” exists — This purely corporate political status was created by the 14th Amendment of the Corporate Charter of the United States of America, Inc. deceptively calling itself the “Constitution of the United States of America” and has nothing to do with us and our nationality.

You must know this and give Judicial Notice along with an Affidavit affirming that your nativity occurred on the land of whichever state and you must demand to see any proof otherwise demonstrating that you completed the steps required by the Naturalization Act of 1802.

Of course no such evidence exists and they won’t be able to produce it. Their claim after-the-fact that you agreed to become a corporate slave for them doesn’t hold any water. And your Mother’s unknowing signature on an Application for a Birth Certificate doesn’t either.

2. Once you have a grasp of who you are and how to prove and assert it, you are prepared to lodge further objections with the court and this is where the Glossa Judicial Notice and Order comes in.

Ever heard anyone use the expression, “Put a gloss on it”—-? It’s a slang expression meaning to “sugar coat or otherwise apply a mask or other deliberate obfuscation of identity or fact”. That’s what the use of Glossa promotes— a form of knowing misrepresentation of fact calculated to promote personage being practiced by attorneys to hide the identity of both plaintiffs and defendants.

It is unlawful and illegal for any organization promoting itself as a “court” to use Glossa or any other form of knowing misrepresentation.

So either the “court” has to admit it is a crime syndicate and a fraud, or it has to stop using Glossa and clearly identify the plaintiffs and defendants.

3. There are two reference books called similar names (sound familiar?) — One is the Chicago Manuel of Style, a popular style guide used widely by newspapers and other publications to provide uniform guidelines and standards for reporters and other writers; it is a large reference book similar to a dictionary or thesaurus. The other is The Chicago Manuel of Styles, with an “s” which is a much smaller and more limited publication the size of a larger format paperback book, that deals with the subject of “styles” or “stiles”(British) exclusively. The most recent edition I can find is 1948, though there may be more recent editions.

Both of these publications adequately explain what the Glossa is, as does Black’s Law Dictionary. The earlier versions of the American Bar Association guides to legal style and usage also plainly state that the use of all capital letters denotes either a corporation or a dead man’s estate.

And as I explained, the use of Glossa goes back to Roman times, when the use of all capital letters was used to denote the name of a slave—-so there is no excuse for anyone pretending that the use of Glossa is meaningless and no reason for anyone to scoff at your objections to its use with respect to your good name. If you aren’t a slave, you must say so.

If you don’t object, the rats are free to “presume” whatever is advantageous to them.

4. The authority for my Order is Article X of the actual Constitution, which the rats also adopted in their failed attempt to enclose and privatize our Organic Law— the “undelegated powers” of the states and the people in the international jurisdiction of the sea. There is no delegation of power granted to Congress to create any corporate “persons” and name them after us — which is an act of attempted identity theft and a trespass upon our private property— nor was Congress ever enabled to use Glossa to denote corporations, estates or other corporate entities in any venue affecting us. Our Public Law requires all corporations to be clearly identified by suffixes attached to the name of the corporation, such as “John Deere, Incorporated.” or “Hiriam Walker, LLC”. This is required as a protection against exactly the kind of personage and barratry and other legal chicanery that has been practiced upon the innocent American People.

Call the court on it. Issue Judicial Notice that there is no evidence that Congress was ever empowered to name corporate persons after living American State Nationals, nor is there any provision for Congress to require or even request registration of any child born on American soil — which is a repugnant and internationally forbidden activity resulting in involuntary servitude, press-ganging, and enslavement outlawed throughout the world since 1926. Any claim that a private contract can overcome the Public Law of this country or the International Law as a whole is in their favorite word, “frivolous”; while anyone might enter into such a contract, the contract itself is unlawful and null and void from inception.

5. Every “court” public and private operating on American soil is required to take Judicial Notice and stop accepting claims using GLOSSA. Both the plaintiffs and defendants must be clearly, explicitly identified.

I have the right under Article X of the actual Constitution and under the provisions of The Alaska Statehood Compact to require this correction and I have done so.

If they want to argue that they are dry docked on American soil and acting under treaty, they had better start obeying the treaties they owe us including the Treaty of Ghent 1814 and start operating exclusively within their proper jurisdiction. When they trespass onto my jurisdiction and address my people under false presumptions they have to answer to me and my directives.

6. It might appear that the wording of my Order is awkward and that the subjects and verbs mismatch. This is because the Order is stated in Legalese. It prohibits–separately– both the conventions using Glossa and the Glossa (NAME) itself—- both the deed and the word. This may seem a fine distinction, but it is necessary to prevent any additional fudging and chicanery.

The judges and lawyers reading it will grasp the meaning and implications readily enough.

This is all background information for you to know and use.

The Order has been forwarded via Registered Mail to the Hague and also via email to the Office of the Special Prosecutor. These outrages will not be allowed to continue in any event, but you can all assist by calling these courts and their personnel on the carpet. When they trespass on you and your name and address mail or anything else to you using Glossa— feel free to stomp them flat with objections they cannot answer.

7. And always remember that it is impossible to be “in contempt of court” with respect to a court that has no jurisdiction related to you. When they operate in disrespect of the actual Constitution and our Public Law, they are owed no treaty.

Judge Anna von Reitz: Memorial Day–A Fitting Order Released

Re-posted from Facebook, with many thanks to Judge Anna von Reitz, who offers below, with preface, a Judicial Notice of Fraud and Violation/Immediate Order to Cease and Desist, that she recommends we distribute widely to courts to end the corporate enslavement of people described here in her earlier posts and elsewhere online.

Thank you for taking action and objecting to this deplorable enslavement of people here and throughout the world by corrupt politicians, bankers, and some members of the Bar.

Memorial Day — A Fitting Order Released

Dear Friends,

Last night all Hell broke loose— but in a good sense. For many years people have sought to determine the source, meaning, and implications of the use of all capital letter naming conventions. Why should such a name as “JOHN HENRY DOE” exist? How is it different from “John Henry Doe”? Or “john henry doe” for that matter?

I have researched it and written memorandums on the results that show that the use of these different “stiles” were used in Ancient Roman Civil Law as a means of distinguishing between free men, bondservants, and slaves, with the “john henry doe” stile indicating a free man, and “John Henry Doe” indicating a bondservant, and “JOHN HENRY DOE” indicating a slave.

The implications of this ancient history taken together with the circumstance surrounding the end of the Civil War (with millions of freed slaves representing “abandoned property” at least to some criminally minded members of the Congress) and the adoption of the 14th Amendment to the Corporate “Constitution” in 1868 and “corporate citizenship” with it—– are obvious without a degree in rocket science.

And now, thanks to friends and fellow researchers in Australia we have the nails to this coffin and are enabled to issue the attached Judicial Notice of Fraud and Violation and Order to Cease and Desist.

It is perhaps most fitting that this comes on the eve of the Memorial Day Weekend, when we remember all the good men and women who have fought and died for freedom, and our obligations to them to make sure that freedom for all men and women is secured against the schemes and crimes of perpetrators both foreign and domestic.

God bless you all and may you be assured that your cause is just and your vision righteous as you continue the work of restoring America and putting an end to the crimes and the breaches of trust that have plagued the entire world.

Judge Anna von Reitz

From Karen Stewart:

 “If ever a time should come when… vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”Samuel Adams

In response to my own unfathomable targeting for not only no just or legal cause, but for evil, psychotic reasons by those clearly employed by and acting on behalf of the National Security Agency, I began researching organized stalking and electronic harassment and found that it led to the sinister workings of a shadow government usurping our own by obvious design and long term planning, and covertly harming more people than I could ever have imagined; one which not only blatantly ignores the Constitution, but sees American citizens as “things” that it owns and can do with as it pleases, a government infused with those from private industry who knowingly and singularly serve profit interests above those of our country and certainly our citizens, while laboring furiously to gut every protection we have, simultaneously propping up a gangrenous and dying vestige of our Constitutional Republic, hoping no one will notice until it is too late.

I feel that now is the time to present this letter, with as many signatories as possible, to as many in authority or of influence we can find, who still care about America, and are the philosophical and moral progeny of our Founding Fathers – men and women of conscience and courage who will fight the real enemy within.

NSA Whistleblower, Karen Stewart: Synopsis of the Silent Holocaust Taking Place in the United States

Under former President Bush and now continued under President Obama, what apparently started decades ago as illegal and clandestine programs of experiments on human subjects, such as the CIA’s MK ULTRA, has resulted in the proliferation of Defense Contractors such as Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, General Dynamics, and others, making secret agreements with Federal agencies such as DOD, DIA, NSA, DHS, etc., to allow them and related laboratories and universities to expand inhumane experimentation programs such as illegal experiments for Directed Energy Weapons on unwitting and non-consenting American citizens.

The scam goes like this, random people, or people who are dissidents or whistleblowers are purposely mislabeled as “terrorists” and put on an Enemies List, which is then turned over to Defense Contractors to target under perverted interpretations of NDAA and PAA.

This allows them to engage the Military and Law Enforcement in either the active harassment and torture of individuals illegally targeted for fraudulent cause, or it gives the Defense Contractors carte blanche to commit criminal assault upon innocent citizens while demanding (unconstitutionally) that Police stand down and do nothing to help their victims.

Police are even used as liaisons to citizen vigilante groups like Infragard, or other “civic minded” organizations who are lied to about the target (being a terrorist/traitor/criminal) and enticed/paid to stalk and harass them 24/7. Police are even used as liaisons to actual criminal groups used by Feds and contractors for the blatantly criminal activity such as vandalism, pet poisoning, assaults, to actual usage of mobile Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs) against innocent civilian targets to harm or kill them. Civilians are paid to serve as proxies to give Feds and contractors “plausible deniability”. Police are paid to look the other way, either with cash bribes or “police toys”.

Many Federal managers, such as retired NSA Deputy Director Bill Black Jr., are even secretly investing in this DEW weaponry that they are helping develop through the torture of American citizens falsely labeled as terrorists to strip them of their Constitutional and Civil Rights.

We, listed below, are some of many who are being victimized by faux President Obama’s complete corruption of the Federal Government into an enemy of the real America and its real citizens. If America does not wake up, it is finished as a nation.

Former US Navy Officer Walks Across America to Expose Covert Targeting and Neuro-Experimentation Program

Currently in Greenbelt, Maryland, arriving there from Annapolis as he walks the American Discovery Trail this spring, starting from Cape Henlopen, Delaware, and hoping to end in San Francisco, David Voigts, a former US Navy officer and an exemplary American who seeks to honor his oath to the Constitution to protect all Americans, is walking across the United States of America “to raise awareness for a growing group of victims including men, women, and children being assaulted with electronic weapons.”

David Voigts, whose Control Systems Engineering background in the Navy included work in Electronic Warfare and Nuclear Billets, says the people known nationally and internationally as “Targeted Individuals” are non-consensual victims of an illegal human experimentation project in human-computer interfaces “to conduct various psychological and physical experiments with the use of electronic warfare weapons that essentially torture the victim psychologically and physically.”

These are not merely Covert Ops or Black Ops, he says, but criminal operations being run at a cost of billions of dollars by what appears to be a group of people trained in tactics of Special Warfare operating across federal intelligence agencies and departments in the Military.

Learning About a Covert Targeting and Brain-Computer Interface Experimentation Program

David Voigts learned about the existence of this covert human-computer interface experimentation program as a midshipman at the beginning of his Junior year, seeking to select his career path, when he read books on submarines which revealed undersea cable tapping during the Cold War, news articles about the Echelon signals intercept program, and a series of Special Warfare books “which relayed that some operators with specific skill sets (interrogation, surveillance, and psychological warfare–which are only legal in the context of a declared war) were applying those skills after their service ended, hired on in harassment and revenge campaigns.”

In a letter posted online at his site and mailed to 12,000 recipients in media and among the public, David writes:

I was trained in electrical and mechanical design process from base mathematical equations, to computer modeling, and how those models are used to select the physical components of a system. Part of the training discussed human-machine interface. We studied new prosthetics, and systems that allow “locked-in” patients the ability to communicate through computers using brain-machine interface. There were hints about weapons testing.

As an officer, I served in Electronics Warfare and Nuclear billets. I found out that the program is testing weapons called “Voice of God” or “Hand of God” weapons. When used in conjunction with a psychological warfare campaign, they are called “Perception Warfare,” “Spiritual Warfare,” or “No-Touch Torture” weapons.”

He had also heard about the MKULTRA program, classified experiments run by the CIA from the ’50s to the ’70s in mind control and behavior modification using hypnosis, trauma, LSD, and EMFs on non-consenting subjects, which came to light during a 1977 Congressional investigation, and notes it is hard to read the reports on these experiments: “The crimes are almost indescribable.”

In his letter, David makes a crucial point about the CIA’s MKULTRA, on accountability and prosecution—the CIA was never prosecuted for these crimes, which essentially meant, the experiments continued, as many others, including CIA insider Victor Marchetti have noted:

Because no effective action was taken against these programs, they continued under new agencies and budgets. There are victims who are still in the legacy Cold War programs.”

Understanding that these programs have effectively continued into the present-day involved tying in information gleaned in Naval Systems training. “As a control systems engineer,” he says,”you spend quite a bit of time thinking about disparate concepts and how they integrate. I used that sort of holistic thinking and surmised that the US had a sort of electronic concentration camp.”

The current program is horrendous. Simply put, this is a domestic torture program. Victims are harassed by intimidation groups and physically and sexually tortured 24/7 through technology. The frightening thing is that people around the victims often know what is going on. Some are even co-opted to participate in these crimes.”

Inspired by Literature, Taking an Ethical Stand

David says he was trained in the Navy to look for “this type of corruption.” His class visited the US Holocaust Museum, and a Holocaust survivor conveyed to them that if ever they came across such abuse, to take action against it. In humanities courses, he was exposed to the works of Solzhenitsyn (portraying the Soviet Gulag) and “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson (a much-anthologized short story which portrays the sinister ease with which an entire town accepts the ongoing targeting and stoning to death of a periodic victim). He learned about the Milgram Experiment (which proved that people in positions of authority could get people to torture others).

We discussed social dynamics and how the ordinary men in German reserve police battalions were led to facilitate the Holocaust. Throughout the training, we were taught to pursue ethical choices despite inappropriate group-think.”

What is extraordinary and inspiring is that this particular Naval officer determined to do something about what he had learned, to lend his energy and commitment to raising awareness about this covert abuse on hundreds of thousands, both in the USA and overseas. What motivated him? “Our Naval Law class discussed how a few commanders in the Sixties and earlier had been caught using the Mental Health system to shut down dissent–which is what TIs (Targeted Individuals) experience. I knew that few would figure out the TI issue exists, and even fewer would know what to do to expose the crime. It really wasn’t a choice, I had to help.”

There is a great public need, he notes, to expose this targeting and experimentation program:

Obviously, this program must be brought to light. The first step is to raise awareness. Widespread knowledge of the program will bring forth witnesses on both sides of the issue. With lots of credible testimony, legal opinions could be sought. Favorable legal opinions could encourage those with access to discuss the program. With their help the criminal activity could be disclosed publicly.”

Gaining Inside Access to the Targeting/Experimentation Program

Beyond raising awareness, David Voigts says he wished to learn about the program from the inside. While this may seem inexplicable to many who are experiencing the assaultive aspects of targeting, it is not unlike a base strategy of investigative or “embedded” journalism. In the process, he offers confirmation that all our Internet surfing is under criminal surveillance. “I knew that Internet content would be monitored and that certain people had access to the TI revenge treatment. So, I directed some Internet conversation at a likely candidate. Over time, I was able to get them to run a TI program on me.”

I used the comments section of television shows, news articles, and product reviews to demonstrate knowledge of the process. I left comments on projects of people who I guessed would have access to this illegal targeting program. I explained my concern and recommended that I be put in the program to evaluate the capability and legality. The plan was accepted. I’m in the program and I’ve figured out much of how it works.”

Because of his involvement in bringing the issue to light, however, he lost his job. Undeterred, he has continued his quest to expose the crime of illegal human targeting and experimentation. With a GoFundMe campaign, he sought to raise funds to finance his venture as he researched, wrote, mailed, and handed out 12,000 letters and brochures to the public in hopes that someone reading the words would come forward to help “TI”s, whom he says are only one group affected by this program:

One of the victims’ groups are calling themselves “Targeted Individuals.” They are victims of organized intimidation stalking using COINTELPRO style tactics and electronic harassment using “Perception Warfare/Spiritual Warfare/No-Touch Torture” weapons. There are at least several thousand in the US alone. There are many tens of thousands around the world. The numbers could be much larger. To be quite honest, this program may be like the dragnet surveillance programs – it could affect everyone.”

Coverage of the Cross-Country Walk

Accompanied by his dog, David walks steadily, covering between 8 to 20 miles or more a day. His photos and videos of the trip, including ongoing links to research and information on the Web, may be found at his Facebook page. He also maintains a site online where his letter, brochure, and other information are posted, and looks forward to wider media coverage on this crucial subject.

Much like the details of the Holocaust, this topic should be common knowledge. With awareness, a coordination to end these crimes will be created.”

Saying he has met with mostly positive response on the road, David cites the warmth and generosity of one recent passer-by who stopped to talk and later drove over to his camp site at Tuckahoe State Park with a cooked dinner. He is hopeful that raising awareness will change the landscape, and emphasizes the great necessity for this project. “Once one reviews the material, I believe that one will understand the value and absolute need for this effort. This has to happen. These people really need our help, and they will be extremely grateful for our assistance.”

Determined to continue his outreach and advocacy after the walk, David Voigts seeks also to connect with other groups of Targeted Individuals. Please drop in at his GoFundMe page to donate, contact him to cover this story, or follow his journey on Facebook or Twitter.
