Freedom is An Essential American Value

     Freedom is an essential American value.  Americans wrote The Declaration of Independence in 1776 and proudly proclaimed the basic human rights of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness".  Americans fought and won the American War of Independence from 1775-1783, inspiring people around the world demand, win, and assert their freedom.  Vigilant anti-federalist Americans promptly added the Bill of Rights to the U.S. Constitution in 1789-1791, and legally and constitutionally established basic human rights like freedom of speech [and presumably, freedom of thought], freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, 
freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, freedom from self-incrimination [including, according to the Supreme Court's later Miranda ruling, the right to remain silent], and freedom from cruel and unusual punishment.  Addition rights were gradually added in 1800s, and included Emancipation of enslaved African Americans from 1863-1865, outlawing slavery and involuntary servitude in 1865, applying the Bill of Rights to the states in 1868, and free public education.  Additional rights were also added in the 1900s, including the right to use birth control, expanded voting rights (including the rights of women, poor people, and African Americans to vote), Roosevelt's New Deal progress including Social Security retirement benefits in 1935 and the right to unionize for better working conditions and pay, civil rights including equal opportunity rights won by the civil rights movement from 1954-after 1971, women's rights won by the feminist movement in the 1960s and 1970s, and the right to not be drafted by the army under normal circumstances, won by the 1960's antiwar movement by 1973-1975.  After more than 200 years of establishing and adding human rights in America, America is one of the freeest countries in the world.
     Some milestones in America's continuing struggle for human rights include The Declaration of Independence in 1776, the American Revolutionary War from 1775-1783, the Bill of Rights, passed between 1789-1791, the Emancipation Proclamation issued by Abraham Lincoln in 1863, the 13th Amendment outlawing slavery and involuntary servitude in 1865, President Roosevelt's New Deal, the successful sit-down strikes of the 1930's and mass unionization in the CIO, Brown vs. Board of Education in 1954, the civil rights movement, the antiwar movement, feminism and the women's movement, and the end of the draft between 1973-1975.

US Human Rights Organizations

     Human rights organizations include:
     1. The ACLU, America's leading human rights organization, was founded in 1920.  It is a growing organization that grew from 9.000 members in 1950 to 30,000 members in 1955, 275,000 members in 1974, and more than 500,000 members now.  
     2. Amnesty International was founded in 1961, 16 years after terrible fascist Nazi human rights violations in Germany ended, to defend political prisoners around the world.  It is a growing international organization that grew from 15,000 in 1969 to 200,000 in 1979 to 3 million members and supporters around the world now, including 350,000 members of Amnesty International USA.
     3. Human Rights Watch was founded in 1978.  It is primarily funded by the Open Society Foundation led by billionaire philanthropist George Soros.  It monitors, documents, and writes reports about human rights violations around the world and publishes a huge free annual Human Rights Watch World Report.
     4. The Committee to Protect Journalists was founded in 1981 by US foreign correspondents.
     5. Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance was founded in 2006 in response to hi-tech electronic harassment and gangstalking harassment, and it has around 1,500 members, up from around 1,000 members in 2009.
     6. Committee to Stop FBI Repression. It was founded in 2010 in response to Sept. 24, 2010 FBI raids and subpoenas by 70 FBI agents on antiwar and international solidarity activists in Minneapolis, MN, Chicago, IL, and Grand Rapids, MI.  The FBI was apparently targeting activists who were active in the 2008 protests at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul.
     6. National Jericho Movement has a website calling for freeing all U.S. political prisoners.  They held a Jericho 98 rally in Washington DC in 1998 and then built a website to document their issue.
Stop FBI Repression.
     7. Torture Abolition and Survivor Support Coalition, TASSC, is one anti-torture organization.
     There are also many more human rights organizations in America and worldwide.
     At this point in time
[June 3, 2012], only Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance is tackling the legal self-defense issue of stopping covert electronic harassment and covert gang stalking in America.

Exposing and Stopping Political Repression From 1960-1974
An important anti-HUAC protest took place at Berkeley on Black Friday, May 13,1960 The 1960's Civil Rights Movement endured and highlighted southern police brutality. The official report called the Chicago 1968 conflict at the DNC a "police riot".  It was also estimated 10 years later than 1 in 6 protesters was a government agent. March 9, 1970 news story.
The Citizen's Commission to Investigate the FBI raided a FBI office in March 1970 and obtained and leaked evidence of the FBI's COINTELPRO program. 
Time magazine, June 16, 1971.  The New York Times began publishing a critical secret Pentagon report leaked by Daniel Ellsberg.      On June 30, 1971, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 against the federal government's request for a prior restraint injunction to stop publishing The Pentagon Papers.
The Pentagon Papers were quickly published in paperback format in July 1971.
On Jan. 27, 1973 the U.S. military draft ended.
On March 29, 1973, the last U.S. troops left Vietnam. .The Watergate scandal forced President Nixon resign on Aug. 9, 1974,  A key Dec. 22, 1974 New York Times article by Seymour Hersh exposed a huge illegal CIA
  counterintelligence campaign, presumably Operation CHAOS.

    The issue of freedom versus police repression was highlighted repeatedly by the civil rights movement and the anti-war movement from 1960-1973.  Early TI-style protests exposed and/or protested political repression in America by the police, HUAC (the House Un-American Activities Committee), The FBI's COINTELPRO, the Nixon administration and the Nixon White House "plumbers" or covert ops, the CIA's MKULTRA, and the CIA's Operation CHAOS.
     In 1960, an important anti-HUAC protest took place at Berkeley on Black Friday, May 13,1960.  It is documented in Berkeley in the Sixties
[Viewable at Netflix].  This protest probably led to the rise of the Berkeley Free Speech Movement in 1964-1965.
     Despite police repression, the civil rights movement continued to peacefully march for civil rights and endured and repeatedly nonviolently highlighted the issue of southern police repression, police brutality and police misconduct in the media.
   
  On Dec. 1, 1968, the official government Walker Report, published as a paperback book Rights in Conflict, termed the conflict at the August 1968 Chicago Democratic National Convention a "police riot".  Also, according to at least 1 source, "Ten years later, Army sources estimated to CBS News that an astonishing one in six demonstrators in Chicago that week was actually some kind of government agent."  I believe that the covert use of beam weapons and gang stalking harassment decades later could be labeled a "secret police riot" and/or "police riot".  In the future, a truth commission should produce honest reports similar to the official 1968 Rights in Conflict Walker Report about covert beam weapons and gang stalking harassment.
    
The Jan. 1970 issue of the Washington [DC] Monthly included an article by whistleblower Christopher Pyle, "CONUS [Continental US] Intelligence: The Army Watches Civilian Politics".  He explained that U.S. military intelligence units had 1,500 covert ops monitoring political protests and domestic disturbances in America.
     On March 8, 1970, the Citizen's Commission to Investigate the FBI obtained evidence of the FBI's COINTELPRO program and distributed their evidence to the media.  According to Wikipedia, "The documents revealed the COINTELPRO operation, and led to the cessation of this operation by the FBI."  According to one FBI website article, "The leaking of those documents to the news media and politicians and the subsequent criticism, both inside and outside the Bureau, led to a significant reevaluation of FBI domestic security policy."
     The July 1970 issue of the Washington [DC] Monthly included an article by whistleblower Christopher Pyle, "CONUS [Continental US] Revisited: The Army Covers Up".
     On June 13, 1971, The New York Times began publishing a critical Pentagon document renamed The Pentagon Papers by the media that was leaked by Daniel Ellsberg.  2 video documentaries were later produced about this: 1) The Most Dangerous Man in America [viewable at netflix], and 2) The Pentagon Papers  [also viewable at netflix]. 
(The U.S. government in June 2011 provided the complete and unclassified version of the Pentagon Papers in pdf format.)
    
On June 18, 1971, the Washington Post began publishing information from The Pentagon Papers.  Soon 15 other papers began publishing it.
     On June 30, 1971, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 against the federal government's request for a prior restraint injunction to stop publishing The Pentagon Papers.
     On Aug. 16, 1971, Nixon White House aide John Dean writes a memo explaining that the Nixon White House enemies list will be used to "screw our political enemies."  Decades later, targeted individuals or TIs are now on de facto written/unwritten secret covert ops/secret police enemies lists.
     On Sept. 3 and/or Sept. 9, 1971, U.S. government covert ops, including Nixon White House covert ops or "plumbers" directed by G. Gordon Liddy and E. Howard Hunt broke into Daniel Ellsberg's psychiatrists' office, hoping to find dirt to discredit Daniel Ellsberg with.  This Sept. 1971 break-in scandal is very similar to the illegal covert psywar mind-reading, mind-control, and gangstalking "skit work" psywar tactics used by U.S. government covert ops today.
    
On May 2, 1972, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover died of a heart attack at age 77.  J. Edgar Hoover was a controversial longtime May 10, 1924--May 2, 1972 FBI director and strongman who directed the FBI's COINTELPRO political repression campaign.
     On June 17, 1972, the Watergate scandal began.

     In 1972 and/or early 1973, CIA director Richard Helms ordered the CIA to destroy all CIA MKULTRA mind control research documents.
     In 1972 or 1973, Sidney Gottlieb, a CIA villain who was a poison expert, assassination plotter, and director of the CIA's MKULTRA mind control research program, allegedly ordered the purging and destruction of MKULTRA documents before he resigned.
     On Jan. 27, 1973, the U.S. ended the draft.
     On Feb. 2, 1973, CIA director Richard Helms resigned or was fired/sacked by President Richard Nixon.
     On March 29, 1973, the U.S. removed the last U.S. troops from the Vietnam War.
     On June 27, 1973, the first version of the Nixon White House enemies listwas made public.
     On Dec. 20-21,1973, the second version of the Nixon White House enemies listwas made public.
     On July 1, 1974, Reflections on the Senate Investigation of Army Surveillance was published by Lawrence M. Baskir, Senate Committee on the Judiciary.
     On Aug. 9, 1974, the Watergate scandal finally forced President Nixon to resign.  The Washington Post's critical role in breaking and reporting the Watergate scandal is documented in the movie All the President's Men
[Viewable at Netfilx.]
     On Nov. 4, 1974, after the Watergate scandal, Democrats won the elections, adding 49 congressmen and 3 senators who took office on Jan. 3, 1975.
     On Dec. 22, 1974, The New York Times ran the article
Huge C.I.A. Operation Reported in U.S. Against Antiwar Forces, by Seymour Hersh.  I believe  it is very possible that probably hundreds or thousands of illegal covert ops who worked staffing this massive alleged CIA covert ops political repression program, presumably Operation CHAOS, might have morphed into some of the problems described at StopPsyWar.com 39-40 years later in 2014 if they sought continued employment as anti-social change political repression workers.  (On a similar note, many unemployed European navy shipmen probably morphed after Queen Anne's War of 1702-1713 into money-seeking pirates.)   According to the Dec. 24, 1974 article, "Under the 1947 act setting up the C.I.A., the agency was forbidden to have 'police, subpoena, law enforcement powers or internal security functions' inside the United States."
     By 1974, after the Watergate scandal forced President Nixon to resign, American public faith and trust in the U.S. federal government had collapsed.  In this atmosphere, Seymour Hersh's Dec. 22, 1974 expose of illegal CIA activity in a huge New York Times article prompted a round of congressional investigation into CIA and FBI misconduct that latest from 1975-1977.

Trying to Reform the CIA and FBI From 1975-1978
A key Dec. 22, 1974 New York Times article by Seymour Hersh exposed a huge illegal CIA counterintelligence campaign, presumably Operation CHAOS. the Rockefeller Commission Report in July 1975.  It was considered a whitewash that was superceded by the Church Committee Reports.
The Church Committee produced in 1975-1976 extensive Church Committee Reports concerning alleged CIA and FBI misconduct.
 
The Village Voice printed excerpts from the leaked Pike report on Feb. 16, 1976.  The New York Times printed draft sections of the report on Jan. 26, 1976,. This 1996 book extensively analyzes why a 1975-1976 effort to reform the FBI and CIA failed. Reformer and moral Christian Jimmy Carter was elected President on Nov. 2, 1976.

     By 1975, after Watergate, the Democrats' victory in the Nov. 4, 1974 elections, and the publication of a critical Dec. 22, 1974 New York Times article Huge C.I.A. Operation Reported in U.S. Against Antiwar Forces, by Seymour Hersh, Congress tried to investigate and reform the CIA and the FBI in 1975-1976.
     Investigations of CIA and FBI misconduct ranged from a lame whitewash (the Rockefeller Commission Report) to extensive published documentation (the Church Committee Reports) to complete time-delaying failure (the Nedzi committee, lasting less than 5 months) to "open warfare" and an uncensored report that criticized the CIA and was rejected by the House of Representatives (the Pike Committee Report).  The CIA provides an unclassified 1970's investigator's report on this conflictChallenging the Secret Government examines this conflict in detail.  Bottom line: covert operations and mind control research, particularly COINTELPRO, Operation CHAOS and MKULTRA, were exposed, but covert operations and mind control research continued in one form or another.
     However, the conflict did produce official documentation of CIA and FBI misconduct, and did apply pressure for reform to Congress, the President, the CIA, and the FBI.  One CIA internal reformer documented in 2002 how this reform period fits into the history of efforts to reform the CIA.

     From 1975-1976, post-Watergate intelligence investigations included:
1. In Feb. 1975, the United States President's Commission on CIA activities within the United States, led by Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, known as The Rockefeller Commission.  It published the Rockefeller Commission Report in July 1975.  It was considered a whitewash that was superceded by the Church Committee Reports.
2. On Jan. 27, 1975, the U.S. Senate established the Church Committee to investigate CIA and FBI misconduct.  The Church Committee produced in 1975-1976 extensive Church Committee Reports concerning alleged CIA and FBI misconduct.  They produced their final report on April 26, 1976. 
[Here are excerpts from their final report.]
3. On Feb. 19, 1975, the U.S. House of Representatives created the Nedzi Committee.  "For almost 3 months, the Nedzi committee was paralyzed by its inability to select a staff director." Nedzi resigned from his committee on June 12, 1975 amid controversy.  On June 16, 1975, Congress initially refused his resignation, but Nedzi refused to continue to serve as chairman anyway.  On July 17, 1975, the U.S. House of Representatives abolished the Nedzi committee and established the Pike Committee.
4. On July 17, 1975, the U.S. Congress established the Pike Committee.  The Pike Committee and the CIA's relationship deteriorated into "open warfare", according to one CIA report on the Pike Committee.  "When presented with a draft of the Committee's report, CIA legal counsel Mitchell Rogovin is said to have told the Committee's staff director Searle Field: 'Pike will pay for this, you wait and see…. There will be a political retaliation…. We will destroy him for this.'"  On Jan. 23, 1976, the Pike Committee voted to release the Pike report. 
The final Pike Committee report was very critical of the CIA.  It was leaked to reporter Daniel Schorr and excerpts from the report were promptly printed by the New York Times on Jan. 26, 1976.  Then the U.S. House of Representatives, after the report was published in the New York Times, voted on Jan. 29, 1976 to reject the report.  Then on Feb. 16, 1976 the Village Voice also printed the final Pike report ["in full", claims the CIA article].  Daniel Schorr was pressured to resign from CBS in Sept 1976 and Pike, targeted by the CIA, resigned from Congress in 1978.  The complete Pike report is still not available in pdf form from the U.S. government or any other archival source today, more than 40 years later.  [The manner in which the Pike Report was released might have placed it in some sort of legal status limbo in Jan. 1976.]
     According to the one CIA article, "the [Pike] committee's number-one recommendation, like the Church Committee's, was the establishment of a Standing Committee on Intelligence." 
     On Feb. 18, 1976, President Ford signed executive order 11905, banning political assassination and improving oversight of the CIA.
     On May 19, 1976, the U.S. Senate established the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.
     In Sept 1976
[approx. Sept. 26, 1976], Daniel Schorr resigned from CBS, apparently under pressure from CBS executives angry about his leaking the Pike report to the Village Voice.
     On Nov. 2, 1976, reformist and moral Christian Jimmy Carter was elected President of the United States.  He took the oath of office on Jan. 20, 1977.  "Throughout his career, Carter strongly emphasized human rights."
     On July 14, 1977, the U.S. House of Representatives established the United States House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
     On Oct. 20, 1977, Carl Bernstein (a Washington Post reporter of Watergate investigation fame) published the article The CIA and the Media: How Americas Most Powerful News Media Worked Hand in Glove with the Central Intelligence Agency and Why the Church Committee Covered It Up in Rolling Stone magazine.
     On Nov. 9, 1977, William C. Sullivan, once number 3 at the FBI (underneath Hoover and Tolson), who once ran COINTELPRO and testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee in 1975, was shot and killed in what was described as a hunting accident.  The wikipedia article on William C. Sullivan claims Sullivan was one of 6 current or former FBI officials to die in a 6-month period in 1977.
     In 1977, ex-CIA director Richard Helms was convicted of lying to Congress. He received a 2-year suspended sentence and a $2,000 fine.
     On Jan. 24, 1978, President Carter signed executive order 12036 that strengthened and expanded executive order 11905 banning political assassination and improving oversight of the CIA.
     In 1978, Congressman Otis G. Pike, targeted by the CIA for writing the Pike report, resigned from Congress.
     On Oct. 25, 1978, the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act was passed.  It established a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.


Challenging the Secret Government in 1975-1976: An outsider's view

     While the post-Watergate investigations into CIA and FBI misconduct did produce critical political pressure for reform, the 1996 book Challenging the Secret Government: The Post-Watergate Investigations of the CIA and FBI explains that these investigations did not produce major reform  In particular, the Pike Committee Investigation was not released to the public in America (and only the New York Times and the Village Voice printed excerpts from it) and the establishment did not press for major reform.  The 1960s social change forces that won civil rights, women's rights, and an end to the Vietnam War and an end to the draft and even witnessed President Nixon resign were not able to reform the FBI and CIA in the 1970s.
     The introduction from Challenging the Secret Government: The Post-Watergate Investigations of the CIA and FBI provides an outsider's viewpoint of the potential of and failure of dramatic reform of the FBI and CIA in 1975-1976.

"When Richard Nixon resigned in August 1974, the United States concluded one of the most traumatic chapters in its history. During the Watergate scandal, Americans had been shocked by the crimes of the Nixon presidency. Investigations by the press and Congress had exposed previously unimaginable levels of corruption and conspiracy in the executive branch. The public's faith in government had been shaken; indeed, the entire "system" had been tested. Now, with Nixon's resignation, two years of agonizing revelations finally seemed to be over. The system had worked.

Yet only four months later, New York Times reporter Seymour Hersh disclosed that the government's crimes went beyond Watergate. After months of persistent digging, Hersh had unearthed a new case of the imperial presidency's abuse of secrecy and power: a "massive" domestic spying program by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). According to Hersh, the CIA had violated its charter and broken the law by launching a spying program of Orwellian dimensions against American dissidents during the Vietnam War. The Times called it "son of Watergate."

These revelations produced a dramatic response from the newly energized post-Watergate Congress and press. Both houses of Congress mounted extensive, year-long investigations of the intelligence community. These highly publicized inquiries, headed by experienced investigators Senator Frank Church and Congressman Otis Pike, produced shocking accusations of murder plots and poison caches, of FBI corruption and CIA incompetence. In addition to the congressional inquiries, the press, seemingly at the height of its power after Watergate, launched investigations of its own. The New York Times continued to crusade against CIA abuses; the Washington Post exposed abuses and illegalities committed by the FBI; and CBS's Daniel Schorr shocked the nation by revealing that there might be "literal" skeletons in the CIA closet as a result of its assassination plots.

In this charged atmosphere, editorial writers, columnists, political scientists, historians, and even former officials of the CIA weighed in with various suggestions for reforming an agency that many agreed had become a ''monster.'' Several policymakers, including presidential candidates Fred Harris and Morris Udall, called for massive restructuring or abolition of the CIA. Media and political pundits suggested banning CIA covert operations; transferring most CIA functions to the Pentagon or the State Department; or, at the very least, devising a new, strict charter for all members of the intelligence community.

Few barriers seemed to stand in the way of such reforms. The liberal, post-Watergate Congress faced an appointed president who did not appear to have the strength to resist this "tidal shift in attitude," as Senator Church called it. Change seemed so likely in early 1975 that a writer for The Nation declared "the heyday of the National Security State', to be over, at least temporarily.

But a year and a half later, when the Pike and Church committees finally finished their work, the passion for reform had cooled. The House overwhelmingly rejected the work of the Pike committee and voted to suppress its final report. It even refused to set up a standing intelligence committee. The Senate dealt more favorably with the Church committee, but it too came close to rejecting all of the committee's recommendations. Only last-minute parliamentary maneuvering enabled Church to salvage one reform, the creation of a new standing committee on intelligence. The proposed charter for the intelligence community, though its various components continued to be hotly debated for several years, never came to pass.

The investigations failed to promote the careers of those who had inspired and led them. Daniel Schorr, the CBS reporter who had advanced the CIA story at several important points and eventually had become part of the story himself, was investigated by Congress, threatened with jail, and fired by CBS for his role in leaking the suppressed Pike report. Seymour Hersh's exposes were dismissed by his peers as "overwritten, over-played, under-researched and underproven." Otis Pike, despite the many accomplishments of his committee, found his name linked with congressional sensationalism, leaks, and poor administration. Frank Church's role in the investigation failed to boost his presidential campaign, forced him to delay his entry into the race, and, he thought, might have cost him the vice presidency.

The targets of the investigation had the last laugh on the investigators. "When all is said and done, what did it achieve ?" asked Richard Helms, the former director of the CIA who was at the heart of many of the scandals unearthed by Congress and the media. "Where is the legislation, the great piece of legislation, that was going to come out of the Church committee hearings ? I haven't seen it." Hersh, the reporter who prompted the inquiries, was also unimpressed by the investigators' accomplishments. "They generated a lot of new information, but ultimately they didn't come up with much," he said.   Why were the early high expectations of Hersh, Schorr, Pike, and Church not met?  Why did so little reform result from such extensive investigations?"


An Overview of Intelligence Reform: An insider's view


     Attempts to reform the CIA and FBI can be viewed in the context of other major 1949-2002 attempts to reform the CIA and U.S. federal government intelligence agencies.

     Efforts to reform the CIA and FBI between 1975-1978 did not produce major reforms.
     U.S. government Intelligence agencies' countersubversive and counterintelligence programs of the 1970s including the FBI's COINTELPRO, the CIA's Operation CHAOS. and army Intelligence CONUS programs and the CIA's mind control programs including MKULTRA  probably morphed into the covert beam weapons and gangstalking psywar tactics being used against targeted individuals in America from at least the 1980's--today.  Between at least the 1980's-today their covert beam weapon mind control and mind-reading technology was repeatedly upgraded. 
(FYI, mind-control patents extend as far back as 1956, around 3 years after Project MKULTRA started in on April 13, 1953.)

     Some opponents of government political repression programs, including mind control programs, have carefully documented these problems in print and/or video.  Some media workers have also documented the growing mind control and/or military electromagnetic weapons and/or military psyops or psychological warfare technology.  By 1992 a few targeted individuals were already barely starting to network and organize, and by 2005 Freedom for Covert Harassment and Surveillance was formed by targeted individuals. Today TIs are building the documentation necessary to prove our claims of being victims of hi-tech electronic harassment that in at least some cases includes hi-tech mind reading and/or hi-tech mind-control technology.

     In 1978, 2 years after the 1975-1976 Congressional Church Committee hearing exposed the CIA's MKULTRA mind control program, anti-mind control researcher Walter Bowart published Operation Mind Control, a 317-page investigation into CIA mind control activities.  It begins with the complaint that "US [CIA mind control research] Develops Invisible [mind control] Weapons to Enslave Mankind."  Both Dell and Fontana published it in 1978.  Walter Bowart also published a special very limited updated researchers edition of Operation Mind Control in 1994, 16 years later, with some key additional topics concerning technological upgrades in mind control technology to the use of electromagnetic mind control technology.  Many other books by researchers and/or victims were also published documenting abuses by MKULTRA and other mind control programs.  The synopsis to the 1994 revised version of Operation Mind Control lists a kitchen-sink list of 41 alleged pre-1994 mind control topics.  The Fall 2000 History Channel program Mind control: America's Secret War is probably a much better introduction to the history of mind control research in America.
     On July 10, 1979, ABC News broadcast Mission: Mind Control.  It summarized the early MKULTRA mind control research programs, including MKULTRA's LSD research.
     In 1985, CNN produced a special report on Electromagnetic Radio Frequency Technology.
     In 1987, Bill Moyers broadcast The Secret Government on PBS.  He also wrote a book on the secret government in 1988 and he published a revised version in 1994.  He complained that the Iran-contra scandal subverted legal constitutional government and set up a de facto "secret government" accountable to no one.  While he does very briefly complain about CIA political repression misconduct, he does not focus on or document mind control, electronic harassment or psychological warfare in his video.
     In 1989, Brian Glick wrote War at Home: Covert action against U.S. activists and what we can do about it documenting FBI COINTELPRO-style misconduct.  He documents "psychological warfare" as a COINTELPRO tactic.
     In 1989, Brian Glick wrote a book on stopping COINTELPRO political repression: War at Home: Covert action against U.S. activists and what we can do about it   It is also available from South End Press.  In addition to the book pages displayed at Amazon.com, other excerpts from it are posted on the Internet, including:
1. An overview of The War at Home from the PublicEye.org.  This overview documents that the 4 main political repression methods of COINTELPRO are:
          1. Infiltration by Agents and Informers [page 41]
          2. Psychological Warfare [aka "psywar"] From the Outside [page 45]
          3. Harassment Through the Legal System [page 53]
          4. Extralegal [i.e., illegal] Force and Violence [page 59].
          This excerpt also documents guidelines for coping with all 4 methods of COINTELPRO repression.
2. Google books provides a preview of many pages of The War at Home.
3. The Third World Traveler provides excerpts from the War at Home documenting COINTELPRO in the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's.
     On Oct. 29, 1990, anti-mind control researcher Walter Bowart and Richard Sutton wrote a draft outline version of The Invisible Third World War about covert operations and covert mind control programs.  His paper's brief outline includes 5 major topics:
          1. Chemical and Biological Warfare
          2. Mind Control
          3. Electromagnetic Mind Control
          4. The Ultimate IW Weapon: Psychotronic Warfare
          5. Freedom vs. Slavery.
     In Dec. 1992, Targeted Individual or TI researcher Julianne McKinney wrote Microwave Harassment and Mind Control Experimentation.  She and other TIs blamed the government for hi-tech electronic harassment.  This is way back in Dec. 1992, at least 19 years ago.
     In 1994
, mind control researcher Walter Bowart claimed  in topic 29, "Invisible Warfare" in his revised 1994 version of Operation Mind Control, "Public awareness has been outrun by the progress in mind control technology.  It has gone from drugs and hypnosis to the effects of microwaves, ELF waves, gravity waves, and modulated signals of all kinds."  [Bold print added.]  He also noted in 1994 in topic 34 that consumertronics, led by "weapons engineer" John J. Williams, was selling beam weapon tech and mind control tech, including "offensive generators and defensive countermeasures...".  In point 35 he documents anti-mind control researcher and human EM target [now labeled a TI or targeted individual] Harlan Girard.
     In 1998, the Discovery Channel broadcast War 2020.  It showcases existing U.S. Air Force psychological warfare capability.  The final segment predicts that future global mind control (attempting to control the mind of many people, not just one person at a time) might be part of the hi-tech future of political and/or military conflict.
     In Fall 2000, the Discovery Channel broadcast Mind Control: America's Secret War.  It focuses on the early MKULTRA mind control research.  At the very end of it, it correctly hypothesizes that modern day mind control (after the 1975-1976 MKULTRA hearings) might be hi-tech beam weapon based, but it offers no real proof.
     In 2001, Congressman Dennis Kucinich proposed anti-mind control legislation, The Space Preservation Act of 2001, that attempted to outlaw mind-control satellites.  The Space Preservation Act, initially proposed by Congressman Kucinich in 2001, attempted to ban all non-lethal mind control and other exotic weapons in space.  It specifically attempted to ban "psychotronic", "mind control" and other "exotic" weapons from space.  However, the 2002, 2003, and 2005 versions of The Space Preservation Act, proposed federal legislation that did not pass and it is not U.S. law, did not specifically include "mind control" weapons in the list of weapons to be prohibited in space.  [FYI, wikipedia editor Wehwalt deleted this important wikipedia entry on Dec. 29, 2008.]

     On Feb. 26, 2005, a targeted individual or TI conference call support group founded
Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance, the TI's main political organization.  1,500 people, including targeted individuals, human rights supporters, and unfortunately also government agents have joined Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance as of Dec. 2012.
     On June 17, 2006, targeted individuals or TIs held their first American national human rights rally for targeted individuals, opposing political persecution, electronic harassment, mind control, electronic torture, and gangstalking,  One of the sponsoring groups was Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance at http://www.freedomfchs.comA previous national rally attempt was rained out on Oct. 8, 2005.
     On Dec. 2006, Project Censored published U.S. Electromagnetic Weapons and Human Rights. 
     On Dec. 16, 2006, the Department of the Army at Fort Meade, Maryland released some declassified info on "Bioeffects of Selected Nonlethal Weapons" to Donald Friedman in response to a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request.  The FOIA data was reviewed in March 2008 at NewScientist.com in an article titled "US Army toyed with telepathic ray gun".

     On Jan. 14, 2007, the Washington Post magazine ran a very detailed article titled Thought Wars (also titled "Mind Games", by Sharon Weinberger, on targeted individuals or TIs in America.  The article documented claims of electronic warfare/psywar persecution and/or torture in a very prominent newspaper, the Washington Post.  This article is posted at http://www.mindjustice.org/wparticle.htm.  Also, a 100dpi 19MB pdf version and a 200dpi 75MB pdf version of Thought Wars are posted at this website, StopPsyWar.com.

     In 2007, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Court issued a summary order concerning the lawsuit by TI activist and webmaster of www.us-government-torture.com "Mecca v. United States of America", 06-5305 -cv , 07-2621-op,   It claimed that "The district court dismissed the complaint because it was 'replete with fantastic and delusional scenarios.'"  
     In Oct., 2007, the Supreme Court denied a rehearing for TI activists and webmasters of www.us-government-torture.com John Mecca and Deborah Rae Lamb and their lawsuit "John Mecca and Deborah Rae Lamb v. United States of America".
     On Oct. 27, 2007, elected representative Republican Jim Guest, while running his own radio show and while serving as elected representative in the Missouri House of Representatives from 2002-2010, wrote a note in support of targeted individuals.
     On Monday, Oct. 29, 2007, a FFCHS TI or targeted individual 2-hour conference call is estimated to have included 56-75 or more members.
     Sometime between Jan. 25, 2008 - Feb. 22, 2008, FFCHS hired attorney Jon Wilson to investigate and prepare for a class action lawsuit on behalf of targeted individuals.
     On March 16, 2008, FFCHS President Derrick Robinson sent an email announcing the design for the FFCHS membership card, a useful card that enables TIs who are FFCHS members to identify themselves if necessary in any conflict as a card-carrying member of Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance.
     On March 31, 2008, Jonathan Wilson, Attorney for Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance, wrote a letter to U.S. Senator. Patrick Leahy, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
     On April 9. 2008, Jonathan Wilson, Attorney for Freedom from Covert Harassment and Surveillance wrote a generic letter explaining factual and legal background to medical providers.  Basically, its a letter from FFCHS's lawyer in 2008 to back up any TI claiming to their doctor that they are the victim off hi-tech electronic harassment and/or mind reading and/or mind control technology.
     On April 17, 2008, FFCHS President Derrick Robinson wrote a letter to a U.S. Senator (presumably a generic lobbying letter) complaining about TI concerns.
     FFCHS has continued advocating for the human rights of targeted individuals between 2008-now.

     In 2009, the History Channel ran an excellent series on amazing new technology, including "That's Impossible!"  Mind Control, "That's Impossible!"  Death Rays and Energy Weapons, "That's Impossible!"  Weather Warfare.

     On Dec. 17, 2012, TruTV broadcast
Brain Invaders, a Jesse Ventura Conspiracy Theory video on mind control.  It includes a map that claims to document the locations of a presumably partial list of mind control victims in America..

Brain Invaders episode of Jesse Ventura's cable TV series Conspiracy Theory leads TV conspiracy theorist, pro wrestler, and ex Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura [pictured at lower left with a cigar] to deduce that GWEN towers are probably used for mind control. I believe satellites and beam weapons are also used.

    My initial 6/3/12 web posting, due to time constraints, has an incomplete list of TI activism.  For a list of plenty of additional TI activism info, see the article Activism History: Activism Events In the Fight to Expose and Stop the Crime of Organized Stalking and Electronic Harassment. by TI expert and documentarian Eleanor White.  It is still in rough draft format and it is still under revision [as of June 3, 2012].
