What is "Gang Stalking"?

(Note to Forum Administrator: The following is NOT a "conspiracy theory")

"Gang Stalking" is, very likely, a disinformation term created by U.S. intelligence agencies.
It refers to the intense, long-term, unconstitutional surveillance and harassment of a person who has been designated as a "target" by someone associated with America's security industry.

Such operations have nothing to do with criminal gangs.
Official domestic counterintelligence operations of this type are - apparently - perpetrated by federal agents and contractors, sometimes with the support of state and local law enforcement personnel.

The goal of such operations - in the parlance of counterintelligence agents - is to "subvert" or "neutralize" an individual deemed to be an enemy (or potential enemy) of clients or members of the security state.
Arguably, the most accurate term for this form of harassment would be
"counterintelligence stalking."

Published news reports and other evidence ...seem to suggest that much - but not all - of this stalking is done as part of a national program.
News reports indicate that such stalking is sometimes used unofficially for personal and corporate vendettas by current and former employees of law enforcement or intelligence agencies, and private investigators.

Since counterintelligence stalking goes far beyond surveillance - into the realm of psychological terrorism, it is essentially a form of extra-judicial punishment.
As such, the harassment is illegal - even when done by the government.
It clearly violates the Sixth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, for example - which guarantees the right to a trial.
Such operations also violate similar fundamental rights defined by state constitutions,
which people on the right of America's political spectrum claim to respect.
Stalking is also specifically prohibited by the criminal codes of every state in America.

Although the term "gang stalking" is intentionally misleading, it does have one merit;
it is accurate in the sense that the perpetrators - law enforcement agencies, intelligence agencies, and private security thugs - do often function in the manner of criminal gangs.
Although they sometimes conduct their operations under the color of law, many of their activities have neither constitutional nor moral legitimacy.
This is true of all the likely major perpetrators of organized stalking in the U.S., the FBI,
the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. military counterintelligence agencies, state and local Law Enforcement Intelligence Units (LEIUs), and security contractors.
All of these groups - and other federal intelligence agencies, such as the CIA, and NSA -
have well-documented histories of abusing their powers.


A Canadian, a Texan, and a tea bagger walk into a bar...

..and the bartender says: "What'll it be, Senator Cruz?"

Why did Jeb Bush walk across the road?

Because his mother asked him not to run.

Why did Chris Christie cross the road?

To eat the chicken on the other side?

Why did Donald Trump cross the road?

To deport an illegal immigrant on the other side?

What's your favorite line or scene from the movie "Tombstone"?

"Tombstone" (1993) was directed by George P. Cosmatos, written by Kevin Jarre,
and starred Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp, Val Kilmer as Doc Holiday, Sam Elliot as Virgil Earp,
Bill Paxton as Morgan Earp, Powers Boothe as Curly Bill Brocius,
Michael Biehn as Johnny Ringo, Charlton Heston as Henry Hooker,
Stephen Lang as Ike Clanton, and Thomas Haden Church as Billy Clanton

My favorite scene was when Doc Holiday, drunk as usual, was playing a somber piece on the piano in the bar:
BILLY CLANTON: (Also drunk) Is that "Old Dog Trey"?..Sounds like "Old Dog Trey"
BILLY CLANTON: Stephen Foster."Oh, Susannah" "Camptown Races". Stephen stinking Foster!
DOC HOLIDAY: Ah, yes. Well, this happens to be a nocturne.
DOC HOLIDAY: You know, Frederic fucking Chopin.

Cat Choked with Wire and Bludgeoned Deserves Justice (PETITION)

January 29, 2016

A cat was recently found in the cold after someone twisted a wire tightly around it's neck and left it for dead.
The calico cat, named Faith by rescue workers, had several lacerations on her head when she was brought to Heavenly Paws Animal Shelter in York County, Pennsylvania for veterinary attention.

Faith's injuries were treated, and a round of antibiotics started before she was allowed to go home with a foster care volunteer.

Over the course of only a few hours, Faith's condition deteriorated significantly.
She began to pace in circles and bump into furniture, showing signs of severe brain trauma.
By the time a veterinarian was able to see her, the cat was pronounced brain dead and had to be euthanized.

A necropsy revealed that the cat had a fractured skull and three distinct areas of blunt force trauma
Veterinarians suspect that the blows were caused by a hammer, and that the wire was used to hold the cat in place while someone bludgeoned it.
Aside from the obvious signs of abuse, the cat was in otherwise good health, suggesting that it was someone's pet.

This crime demonstrates extreme cruelty and is a shock to the entire community of Hanover County, PA.

In order to ensure that Faith receives justice, it is important that the person responsible is punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Please sign the petition letter to the Animal Control Officer to demand a harsh punishment for the person responsible, which will help deter similar crimes in the future.

Can an unabashedly progressive presidential campaign actually win this November?

By Jim Hightower
Hightower Lowdown
January's Lowdown,
January, 2016, Volume 18, Number 1

When I crossed paths with a Democratic Party campaign consultant in Austin, last month,
I suggested he come out to the local IBEW hall Tuesday night to hear Bernie Sanders, adding that the Vermont senator was pondering a run for the presidency.

"You gotta be kiddin' me," the political pro snorted.
"Bernie Sanders? Let me tell ya, his chances are slim and none, and Slim don't live in Bernie's precinct.
First of all, no one south of Greenwich Village ever heard of him.
Second, who's gonna vote for some old senator from a tiny state of Birkenstock-wearers damn near Canada?
And for chrissake, Hightower, he's Jewish.
Plus he's some sort of socialist, isn't he?'

So that scoffer was a no-show; but we didn't have room for him anyway.

We had expected about 200 people, which is how many the hall would seat - but nearly 500 Texans showed up that night to hear the undiluted, populist message of this senator "no one ever heard of."

Austin was one of the stops on a cross-country trip that Bernie was taking to assess whether an unabashedly progressive, movement-building presidential campaign could rally any substantial support.
If he ran, he planned to go right at the moneyed elites who've thoroughly corrupted our politics and rigged our economy to squeeze the life out of the middle class.
But would anyone follow?
Were people really ready to do this, and could a 70-something-year-old, notoriously brusque Vermonter with a conspicuous Brooklyn accent be the one to spark such a
modern-day American revolt?
He wasn't sure, and even if it might work, he assumed it would be a slow build.


How Chris Christie, A Master of Political Arts, Contradicts and Confounds.... by Matt Katz

WNYC reporter Matt Katz has been covering New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for the past 5 years.
His latest book is a biography about Christie called:
"American Governor: Chris Christie's Bridge To Redemption"

New Jersey Spotlight
January 21, 2016

In 1994, 31-year-old Chris Christie sat in his living room to film his first ever campaign ad.
His son, Andrew, sat on his wife's lap, sipping a bottle.

"Hi, my name is Chris Christie and I got into this race for a better future for my family and yours," Christie said.

Showing an early flair for insulting language, Christie cited a newspaper editorial in describing the incumbents he was running against as "fumbling and bumbling."

"And now they're being investigated by the Morris County Prosecutor."

Actually, they weren't.
Christie's campaign for a seat on the Morris County Board of Chosen Freeholders was based on ethics reform.
But in the process, he was committing an ethical blunder himself.
He ended up getting sued for defamation.

Christie's political style is the potent force behind his presidential candidacy.
He is a master tactician and exceptional in front of the microphone; but his methods are full of contradictions.

Christie made his career as an ethical crusader -- first running for Freeholder on an ethics platform, then making his name as U.S. Attorney by charging more than 100 politicians with corruption.
Yet his career would ultimately be marked by a series of humiliating alleged scandals, notably "Bridgegate," in the last week of his first term (as Governor).

And while Christie built a national name for aggressively using the bully pulpit -- like calling a law student and former Navy SEAL an "idiot" -- what's less known about Christie is behind the scenes, Christie often opted for the hug instead of the shiv, even among Democrats.
