BORDC/DD Activism: Turn up the heat on Congress

We’re running out of time for making visits to our elected officials in August – when Congress Members are in their home state – but you can also plan to meet your officials in Washington, DC or call them by phone. Here is Defending Dissent’s activism plan…

Tun up the heat on Congress!

Our campaign to Investigate the FBI is gaining steam– but we need your help to make Congress feel the heat this summer. 

Members of Congress will be in their home districts in August, so it’s a great opportunity to meet with them face to face to demand an end to FBI political spying and a full investigation into FBI abuses of its counterterrorism authorities.

Humane Campaign…A campaign asking humanity for humaneness

August 19 – December 10

16 Weeks of Activism

SEPTEMBERA September to Remember

This month is dedicated to remembrance of lives lost through violence from 9/11 to Aaron Alexis and the 12 lives he took. It is also a time to reflect on our history – from Operation Paperclip to non-consensual human experimentation, from COINTELPRO to the consequences of 9/11, and from the continued increase in the use of technologically advanced weaponry, psy-ops, and militarization of police and countries.

Protest against treating TIs like terrorists

Protest the media for ignoring our pleas

Show support for activists

Support country; protesting is patriotic

Sept 20-27 Non-violence Week 9/22- Walk from Congress to the White House for non-violence [see: http://worldbeyondwar.org/a-call-to-action-september-22-2015-in-washington-dc/]

9/25 – Pizza 2 Police

Send a pizza to your local police department and tell them it’s from a local Targeted Individual

Come to DC for a protest

Order and have delivered a pizza to a police department on Friday 9/25 to provide an olive branch during non-violence week. Make sure they know it is from a Targeted Individual. We need the police as much as anybody else and this positive step can potentially result in compassion for our issues.

Letter to the Senate Intelligence Committee

Please feel free to use portions of this letter to write to the Senate Intelligence Committee. If we get enough people, perhaps we can get them to investigate this, like they did in 1975. And, btw, I will help write or edit material for TIs for “dana” (donation). Thank you!

Senate Intelligence Committee

211 Hart Senate Office Building

Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senate Intelligence Committee:

I am a registered voter with the Democrat Party and live in XXX, MD. I had the privilege of attending the Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing today with FBI Director James Comey (Counter-terrorism, Counterintelligence, and the Challenges of “Going Dark”). Thank you for providing public access to this important hearing.

In preparation for attending the hearing, I gave a cursory look at the FBI’s tactics for handling encryption. I found information on The Intercept (https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2015/07/06/hacking-team-spyware-fbi/) indicating “The DEA, FBI and Army bought Hacking Team’s software through a company called Cicom, which for several years served as a middleman for Hacking Team’s US business.” In fact, the article (Leaked Documents Show FBI, DEA and US Army Buying Italian Spyware) states this software allows users to “take remote control of suspects’ computers, recording their calls, emails, keystrokes and even activating their cameras.” In addition, this information was printed in Politico (July 7, 2015) and, according to their article, it also appeared in Wired. Politico refers to the software as thwarting “encryption by infecting devices so it can monitor communications before they’re encrypted or after they’re decrypted.” The article refers to this software as a potential backup to another system the FBI uses (http://www.forbes.com/sites/thomasbrewster/2015/07/06/us-gov-likes-hacking-team/).

In light of Director Comey’s humble insistence that he does not possess any solutions and he believes Silicon Valley could provide innovative ideas, I am bewildered at the contrast between the media and the hearing, both in terms of the quality and quantity of content.

In fact, I was sorely disappointed I did not learn more from today’s hearing. I attended for personal reasons and was looking to attain a fuller understanding of my situation. Briefly, I worked at a federal contractor, experienced mobbing (adult bullying), and was forced out. I recreated my life only to have it all unravel again. Last year, I started to experience mobbing again as well as organized stalking, which involves stalking, harassment, and surveillance. To my surprise, I learned the FBI used these tactics in Cointelpro, which this committee investigated in 1975. Back then, the FBI targeted civil rights activists, war protesters, and various other law-abiding and non-violent citizens.

Apparently, yesterday’s “communists” are today’s “terrorists.” Many (including thousands of Targeted Individuals like myself and another woman present at the hearing today) share this sentiment. Recently (June 30, 2015), Truth Out printed an article titled Protest is the New Terror: How US Law Enforcement is Working to Criminalize Dissent. The author states, “…the FBI, working with local police have directed their resources as much against protesters, dissenters and those practicing and [sic] civil disobedience as they have against the threat represented by terrorists, whether homegrown “lone wolves” or organized outside groups.”

In my own situation, one of my co-workers said to me, “This is what you get when you mess with the police.” One week later, in August of 2014, I noted an abnormal police presence wherever I went. It continues to this day, along with the stalking, harassment, and other forms of surveillance. Surely, a whistle blower and activist like me – a middle-aged, law-abiding, tax-paying breast cancer survivor who served in the Peace Corps and has written about health and human rights – does not warrant neither the resources nor the punishment inflicted. I would like to remind this committee of the words from the original investigation of Cointelpro:

We have examined the collection of intelligence about the political advocacy and actions and the private lives of American citizens. That information has been used covertly to discredit the ideas advocated and to “neutralize” the actions of their proponents. As Attorney General Harlan Fiske Stone warned in 1924, when he sought to keep federal agencies from investigating “political or other opinions” as opposed to “conduct . . . forbidden by the laws”:

When a police system passes beyond these limits, it is dangerous to the proper administration of justice and to human liberty, which it should be our first concern to cherish.

. . . There is always a possibility that a secret police may become a menace to free government and free institutions because it carries with it the possibility of abuses of power which are not always quickly apprehended or understood. 7

Our investigation has confirmed that warning. We have seen segments of our Government, in their attitudes and action, adopt tactics unworthy of a democracy, and occasionally reminiscent of the tactics of totalitarian regimes. We have seen a consistent pattern in which programs initiated with limited goals, such as preventing criminal violence or identifying foreign spies, were expanded to what witnesses characterized as “vacuum cleaners”,” sweeping in information about lawful activities of American citizens.

The tendency of intelligence activities to expand beyond their initial scope is a theme which runs through every aspect of our investigative findings. Intelligence collection programs naturally generate ever-increasing demands for new data. And once intelligence has been collected, there are strong pressures to use it against the target.

Thank you again for the public hearing. I do hope you will consider my story and know that there are thousands out there going through very similar circumstances. Please protect our rights in concert with protecting the security of the nation and preserving the democracy our forefathers and mothers created so that we may live in freedom.

To Whom It May Concern:

I have worked for 3 years with Microwave and Electronic Harassment victims throughout the U.S. and overseas. It is hard for others to understand the technology that is being used to destroy people’s lives. I know James because he contacted me for help. James has worked to find proof of what has happened to him.

Many victims try hard to get help from professional doctors to help find devices such as Veri-Chip. I would request that you and those that can make a difference would help James and others to find answers.

To whom it may concern,

The undersigned is a licensed Private Investigator, licensed in the state of Florida and the state of Connecticut. The undersigned is not an expert in electronics nor an electrical engineer certified to conduct these issues. The undersigned has however been successfully locating and identifying electronic devices that are designed to eavesdrop in individuals and harass for numerous known and unknown reasons for over forty years. References are available on request.

On or about 1500 on January 6, 2008, the undersigned met with and interviewed Mr. James Walbert of Wichita, Kansas. Mr. Walbert related to the undersigned that he believed he had been subjected to various forms of electronic surveillance and electronic harassment by persons known or unknown to him, for reasons known or unknown to him. (I shall not violate Mr. Walbert’s confidence by memorializing his suspicions in this report as Mr. Walbert is involved in a legal matter relating to this harassment.)

During the course of the afternoon of the 6th of January 2008, the undersigned tested Mr. Walbert’s person for radiation using a JM-20PRO, 1MHz – 3GHz. Portable R.F. Detector and a JM-20F RF Finder Bar Graph Display RF Frequency Detector.

The undersigned found that the JM-20PRO detected a low signal coming from Mr. Walbert’s right upper back area of his person. Upon scanning Mr. Walbert with the JM-20F the undersigned found a low bandwidth signal of a fairly steady 288MHz. (A background signal of the area was 800 to 900 MHz.)

It is also worthy of mention that while viewing Mr. Walbert through a Bushnell 26 4202G Night Vision Infrared Viewer there was a very definite visual distortion of light on Mr. Walbert’s back area.

These tests and results were witnessed by a credible third party with the permission of Mr. Walbert.

Respectfully,

Please call your Senator’s office and let them know that you do not support surveillance programs. It’s a step in the right direction for us. And since it’s already being discussed and debated, we need to voice our concerns, too. These small steps may lead to a bigger victory over time.
