We’ve documented US government use of harmful and deadly experiments upon the public (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here for just a few, that the US tortures people in Orwellian violation of six binding areas of law), and that the US spies on absolutely everything (here, here). We published testimony of a “targeted individual,” Ramola D, who asked that we share her story. This is a second request from Ricardo Camilo López.
19-minute TED talk on the history of government secret surveillance and coercive control of political dissent. This history is ordinary on Earth:
Before we share this testimony, I remind readers that accurate history is essential to bring our world of the present into focus. Essential history includes the following few paragraphs, without which there is no possibility to understand the present.
The US .01% “leaders” today must engage in research, development, and practice of targeting individuals in order to control dissent because these “leaders” in government, banking/finance, and media are obvious criminals that should be legally stopped by arrests for the following Emperor’s New Clothes obvious crimes:
- Unlawful and lie-began wars.
- Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
- So-called “money” that is actually debt that creates accelerating and unpayable total debt. The .01% hide ~$30 trillion in tax havens while demanding public austerity.
- Destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.
- “Covering the crimes” with lies by corporate media.
These crimes annually cost millions killed, billions harmed, and trillions looted, with recent history continuing literal centuries of US lie-began Wars of Aggression that involved nearly all families in two horrific global wars for colonial empire.
We can add the following economic data for public demand of arrests:
- We’ve already documented how the global so-called “elite” 1% are now wealthier than the 99% while ~30,000 children die daily from preventable poverty in gruesomely-slow agony. Just 62 people on Earth own more than the bottom 50%.
- The US .1% own more than the bottom 90%.
- The top 20 Americans (.000006%) own more than the bottom 50%.
Therefore, because these damning facts ensure lawful arrests of looting, lying, psychopathic imperial War Criminals, we can understand the necessity of the .01% to attempt all effective methods to control and crush discovery of these facts.
In consideration of this context, here is further testimony from Ricardo Camilo López (bio at end of article) regarding targeting individuals to develop suppression and control (lightly edited and abridged):
The U.S. government (USG) has put me under Zersetzung (East German secret police term to target and crush individuals) as part of which they have turned my apartment into a dungeon and created some sort of virtual prison around me even while I am on the streets (they know your exact whereabouts 24×7). It doesn’t seem to be enough for them to blacklist me in the FBI criminal index (including Berufsverbot) and to make Verizon and ACE Innovative stop offering me the telephone and Internet access services I was paying for (and laugh at me, boast about following commands from USG when I tried to raise consciousness about such illegalities by bringing their @ss to court).
I say it is USG doing this not because I think “I am important” (people have told me that), but because I don’t think that at all, nor do I respect the idea that those doing it are the “unavoidable bad apples in every barrel.” It is too well coordinated, organized and consistent, and it has been a constant war of attrition for way too long. Also, if they are doing that to me, they must be doing it to a lot of people out there. Keeping silent about it is not only a way to acquiesce, but also of becoming an accomplice to what they do to other people.
Also, they seem to think they own you, so, to them, you should be quiet and take the abuse as if you were an animal, instead of exposing them. I write in an Aesopic way (without mentioning names), even if I find that very stupid and disrespectful (I would rather have people tell me stuff to my face) because I have been told by some people “they don’t like when their names are ‘used'” (whatever that means), but if they prefer to entertain their own illusions of privacy I should respect that. I myself would be honored if my name is truthfully “used” to protest politicians and police b#llsh!t.
Whatever our kinds of illusions and persuasions may be, we are all in this together.
On Tuesday April 7, 2015, I decided to go to a clinic run by the only socially conscious doctors I know in NYC (chhmp). I asked my girlfriend to go with me because when you tell people about that kind of cr@p they tend to “logically” think you are just a case of PTSD (or worse). They told me there isn’t such a thing as an FCC-like organization concerned with the technicalities and ethics of the medical profession and societal well being. They took note of my complaints and basically told me: “Dude, you need to sleep!” I got some sleeping pills, which neither I, nor anyone in my family has ever needed; Benadryl is the closest to a sleeping pill I had ever taken when I am too stressed. Let me point out I come, both sides, from families living without (serious) disease into their late 80s, 90s and even their 100s.
On and off for a long time, USG has been sleep depriving me (a Nazi favorite form of torture, which has been linked to chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes), which related traumas may fatally render you permanently incapable of living a normal life. Then, after I started to expose them (ipsos custodes), they made my neighbors upstairs make very loud noises at times past 2AM. I could have recorded those EM and acoustic noises and proven that machines generating them can not possibly be domestic. However something “unexpected” happened. The most annoying, crazily loud noises were stopped (by Dr.’s mere annotations?) and, not only that, two of the snitches in my building (family mother who used to live in apartment 4E, and family father in 5H right above me), whom I have seen with plain-clothed police fielding me as I go to work, were standing in the building foyer right as I walked out; both staring at me in a silly (to me, puzzling) way, as if they were “sorry” (it was all recorded by the building cameras).
Of course, it is not just police, their “technical division” and their snitches. As it is becoming more and more clear, medical professionals are offering their expertise to help with societal-scale “norming” and repression of individuals who are not criminals under any standard. I imagine police, politicians and those politically-minded “patriotic” scientists coming to the self-serving, “logical” conclusion that: “since they are not touching you, it is all in your mind” and those determinations they keep secret for “national security reasons”.
I am a physicist, so I very clearly notice they have been sleep depriving me by inducing high frequency EM lobes and modulated noises in my apartment. I also notice at times people talking about this. Seven examples of my experiences as a targeted individual:
1) Autogenic training does wonders to help me manage. I -was- able to sleep even under their “torture regime”, but at some point they seemed to have “turned the screws a little harder” on me and I wasn’t able to sleep at all. I suspect it was not just the noises and EM lobes, but I felt very weird, as if they had been poisoning/lacing my food and/or somehow dusted chemicals on me. I was not only unable to sleep, but I was, for the first time in my life, having heaviness of head and headaches (both symmetrical and asymmetrical ones). As I have experienced myself, you need to get some solid sleep at the very least every third day, otherwise you would go clinically mad. I have managed to sleep at random spots in the sanctuary at church (infrared visors tell them where you are and sonic guns will awaken you) and at my girlfriend’s (they bugged her apartment too) but they do not act so obviously in either place; yet, girlfriend is a night owl and I am a morning bird, she must carefully observe her sleep lest she get migraine bouts …
2) Once, my girlfriend was sleeping at my place and she noticed those very loud and weird noises (she described as the combination of a very loud blender and some engine) twice+ a day. She also noticed the same kind of background noise (to me, maddeningly extenuating) as if it were from the distance (USG knows I suffer from some bad @ss tinnitus, they somehow are able to create noises, which frequencies, even if tenuous, are kinds of a wolf-fifths to my tinnitus). To those I would add their rhythmic (“legally authorized”) sonic guns and transformer hum kinds of noises. They “orchestrate” as not
letting you go into REM sleep, they would make crazily loud noises around midnight and then every one and a half to two hours, they wake you up by slowly increasing the intensity of such modulated noises, which actually rhythmically shake your body making your heart accelerate till you awake. Is this how they mess with your physical health to the point of causing you to have a heart attack or stroke in addition to messing with your mind? They must also know when you are in your bed and when you have awakened because they diminish and change the noises once you wake up.
Sonic guns can create noises, sounds and even voices right outside and inside an apartment. They routinely use your building’s fire alarms in the stair cases, bug your apartment with seemingly innocuous domestic devices and are able to only make noises in your bedroom using the building’s pipes. When I walk around my apartment, USG plays “ping pong” with me. While in the kitchen you notice noises in your bedroom, when you come to your bedroom then the noises start in the kitchen. They use their noises right as you walk into the bathroom or open the fridge, as if you were their animal subject they are “conditioning” in a Skinner/Pavlovian way. When you, say, open the fridge, fire alarms in the stair cases start beeping as if framing the message: “are you sure about what you are eating?”
3) The reason why I am almost 100% positive they are using drugs too, is because sh!t happens and stops happening to you in ways that must have some sort of obvious rhyme or reason GUIDED BY AGENCY and THEY LET YOU KNOW THEY VERY WELL KNOW ABOUT IT. You would start bloating or constipating crazily (which had never happened to me) for no apparent reason (you haven’t started taking any medication, nor have you changed your diet (I try to stick to a 5-2 fasting cycle)) or you would get all bitten by/itching from ants/bed bugs/scabies/microbes (again?!? I used to work as a garbage man, so I learned to clean my body thoroughly) and the most telling aspect of what “happens” to you is that; before and during the periods of time when such things “happen,” they make their snitches yell at and clown you around. You constantly find people acting as if they were laughably carefully observing their food; all kinds of people scratching their bodies right in front of you in way too “demonstrative” a manner; people with skin diseases stand right in front of you; suggestive images on the Internet with messages or video feeds about bloating and constipating in ways which are -very obviously- not random (the only person I talked to –unter vier Augen/face to face- about such matters is my girlfriend, never via email or on the phone). Their snitches would stare at you as if they knew you. Some of them even put on a silly, mocking smile. All of that starts “happening” more when you air memes which they apparently don’t like to be part of public consciousness [FCage] (now they own Physics too), “my phone gets angry” with a very loud noise, so I have to ask to use my church’s phone for my own job interviews.
I love to walk. I hear people say they kind of lose their own consciousness/fall asleep and even dream while they drive. That has happened to me as I walk! (I later learned that happens to cyclists and joggers, too). Right after posting a message criticizing police abuses [theguardian], their snitches started to bump into me on the streets in “you seem to love walking, nigga’ you” ways and then, after getting very weird headaches, my knees started first to pop crazily and I had excruciating pains when I’d bend them sideways, then the pain (from what appeared to be both meniscus) started even from regular walking and, as their way of having fun with their “targets,” THEY WOULD MAKE THE FIRE ALARMS START BEEPING AS YOU WALK INTO THE BUILDING AND STOP BEEPING AFTER YOU PAINFULLY WALKED UP THE STAIRWAYS. They make people in wheelchairs field, stare at you (“is this how you want to ultimately see yourself?”). How is it exactly that crippling me will make them score or make me stop cursing them? My doctor recently did a test looking for signs of arthritis and such. The report he got was negative.
4) §1 and §2 were nothing new. It was just “more intensity” of same old b#llsh!t, but something new and amazing started happening to me. After relaxing a bit, I go into my autogenic exercise trances (“Meine Zehen sind ganz warm,” “Meine Knie sind ganz warm,” “Ich bin ganz ruhig,” … which I have learned to kind of do mentally, inwardly as if I were praying) then I turn face down (in order to avoid acid reflux and make heart work its best). Usually I stay like that for a while and even when I don’t fall asleep/dream I do have some good rest, but after so many days without sleeping I started to effing dream while being awake!!! I also stopped having morning arousals and even feeling like having sex or masturbating. Like a week ago, I was able to begin dreaming again. They have not only sleep deprived me, but kept me for weeks without being able to dream. I wasn’t able to read for more than a month either. Still, even if you mostly feel like your own self has escaped you, you are able to tell apart right from wrong, breathe, walk one step at a time and be nice and true.
5) Something else that started to happen to me was that I was afraid of going to my place after my late afternoon teaching sessions. It felt like going back to my dungeon (I don’t think that people, who know me well, would think of me as a wimp).
6) I was “happy” to pass a -very basic- physics exam (for teachers) so I told my friends (that at least I didn’t have to retake it). One of them wrote back to me: “Are you telling me that you (a well-trained theoretical Physicist) are happy about passing a basic Physics exam?” and as I put together my thoughts to reply to him about not being able to sleep … I realized he was right. Those emming effing morons have driven me to a point that passing a basic physics exam makes me “happy”!
7) Last but not at all least: a very important factor in keeping your sanity is realizing that all those morally deafferented morons: politicians, (“good” and “bad”) police, their snitches and shills; aren’t really people like you and me. You are not supposed to attribute to them what consciousness scholars call a “theory of mind.” When, say, a fly bothers you all you do is pass by or fan it away, you don’t think of speaking to it in order to persuade it not to do so, nor do you actually care about their actions, because you know they couldn’t possibly understand you or ever be your equals (there is no intersubjectivity whatsoever). This way harassment, persecution and torture remain and end on their physical boundaries; they don’t fully, effectively and directly get into your mind. I remember when I was reading about that MIT geeky kid that “committed suicide” (he was also complaining about weird noises). I am sorry for him. Had he understood this well, he may still be alive and kicking today. In fact, at some point, you will feel downright proud at being persecuted by such emming effing morons. That gives you the very comforting assurance that you are not one of them. Of course, they should hate you!
I learned this since I was a little child in Cuba, while noticing how teachers would not talk (or even refer) to me during classes (which other kids noticed as well). They would walk away from me as if I had lice or smelled bad. Those teachers were not mean. In those times they didn’t have the technology and all kinds of “monitoring”/recording devices everywhere, so, police would make teachers write-up thorough reports about “the children of ‘the counter revolutionaries.’” Teachers would pretend they were not around me or I didn’t exist at all in order not to tax their workload with snitching b#llsh!t. A former famous baseball player would bring souvenirs to all kids in the neighborhood each time he toured the world, except to my siblings and me, and, other kids (wondering about the same), shamefully tried to hide their own souvenirs when they saw us.
Unfortunately, Aaron Swartz hadn’t developed immunity against that cr@p yet. USG used him as their pour encourager les autres case. Why did USG “target” him? Why did he “commit suicide”? How exactly were they “serving a ‘greater’ good”? Why are they so easily able to get away with murder? To which extent was “prestigious” MIT “neutrally” involved in the persecution of their students? I have repeatedly noticed how persecution becomes more aggressive while working at colleges and universities. Once I just walked out of a classroom in anger to a large extent “motivated” by that kind of cr@p.
Being targeted by the USG will affect from the jobs you can get to the social settings you may frequent to the chicks whose pants you get into. As a way to disentangle my own demons from that very taxing persecution cr@p I always, even compulsively, say the truth. So once I am getting close to some boobs I tell her, as a full disclosure kind of thing (instead of wasting time dating). Almost all of them go into a “Hello?, hello? …” performance and then don’t relate to you again or act as if they had never talked to you, you were non-existent. I find that so effective that I use it as some sort of mosquito repellent. At times it gets amusing.
Being in the pit makes you see reality from a very different vantage point. They say “there are two kinds of people,” the ones who think there is only one kind of people and those who think otherwise. Something I find amazing is that when you talk to people about persecution (regardless of how close they are to you) some don’t even want to talk about it (“such a stupid waste of time”), while some others would actually listen to what you tell them and check it out for themselves. I have had coworkers come up to me and tell me: “police are spreading rumors about you.” I have also wondered about what makes some kinds of people think they should lord it over other ones like their stupidity is more relevant than yours, or as Orwell masterfully put it (not entirely joking) while describing our animal farm: “… some animals are more equal than others”. We all seem to have our moral exclusions, dogmas and rationalizations.
Police are paid to mess with you in a sick way. They call themselves “the finest” and think of themselves as being “smart” (“intelligence” department). Their “intelligence” includes “smart” monitoring, fielding and following you on the streets. You may even find somewhat laughable (even if downright retarded) their preposterously b#llsh!ting acts. It is like you are very clearly seeing a kite, the cord to it and the morons flying it (in addition to understanding the physics behind kite flying) while they are trying to make you think that they have powers to make something fly by itself. I really don’t understand why they do that. To induce you to do some crazy sh! t?, to “convince” you, “you are crazy?”, to keep you mentally busy by reminding you how much you hate them? (that kind of addiction you must watch, learn to control as well).
In Cuba the Castros would formally accuse you of such things as “enemy propaganda” and “spreading false news against peace on earth”[cubaencuentro]. It is part of the openly documented penal code (Wow!, no FISA court cr@p in that “dirty, little sh!t communist country”!) The Catholic Church had their very openly advertised and thoroughly minded Index Librorum Prohibitorum. USG likes to boast about not persecuting people for political reasons, when, in fact, regarding some important aspects they are worse, less humane. In Cuba police summoned their targets to explain, discuss with them their repression plan face to face. USG thinks what they do is right because they “freedom-lovingly” do it in covert ways, backed by secret laws (which interpretations are secret), overseen by secret judges, since “in the U.S. there are laws protecting people’s rights.”
What an oddly illusive (yet seemingly effective) joke!
Castro police would place calls to me (not that aggressively often), and since I would not say anything when I noticed it was them but put down the telephone quietly and let them keep talking to themselves, they did remove my telephone service (as I remember) for 4 months. Gringo police removed the telephone service (and/or Internet access) first for hours, then days, weeks, … until they took it off for good. Yet, at times, even though my telephone had no signal whatsoever (Verizon technicians kept saying “my line was fine”), they let a call through for you to remember what is like to live a normal life. They have such a control over us that they are able to turn the voice of people talking to you into fax tones real time even when you don’t use your own phone (while talking to your son). Castro police didn’t like me a bit, but they didn’t constantly harass and threaten me, telling me “you won’t see from where it will hit you,” “anyone can get shot at,” “you need ‘medication'” … as I walked on the streets.
Sometimes I wonder how is it exactly you fall into their fishing nets. People have told me not to mind gringo police, that USG profile people as it strikes their fancy in order to justify their salaries and, Inquisition-style, when you say no to their b#llsh!t, they see it as more proof as to why you should be their target. USG has been shutting down my computers in ways that you clearly see it is them (my laptop and desktop at once). Writing a poem bricks your router.
I, like Chaplin, Lennon, Orwell, Muhammad Ali (“no Vietcong ever called me nigger”) clearly see “patriotism”, race, ethnicity are ways for politicians and those fencing and “norming” our minds to mess with us, but how exactly does that turn you into terrorist/threat to society? Friends have told me those kinds of thought police things are global now. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, if you are a foreigner, have a criminal history or are a detainee. They sigint everybody anyway and (based on their secret interpretations) once “your patterns” somehow become suspiciously “unnormed” you are in.
They seem to be smart enough to realize they haven’t been that successful with me, but what about other people? Forking a version of Linux/Debian customized in an anti-NSA way to also monitor your environment is easy and will show to people that they are not crazy, that USG is doing such things in a way that it could be proven and documented. We will also need independent “out-of-NSA’s-215-reach”[NSA’s-215] ways to medically test people. They could alter the documents in transit as a way to mess with people’s health. Recently, John Oliver’s satire pointed out section 215, aka the “library records” provision which makes part of the NSA’s fishing game way more than “library records” and “dick pics.” Something peculiar in those provisions I find particularly troubling are our medical records. What exactly do our medical records have to do with our moral, civil and political convictions?!? They (even!) say it is not about the bulk collection per se, but “what they do” with all that detailed data about every one of us …
John Oliver’s satire:
People who were tortured during USG/CIA backed “freedom-loving” dictatorship they had in Brazil during those esquadrão da morte times tell us about the ambiance of enthusiasm and even pride of those committing such horrendous acts; about how they saw themselves as “patriotically ‘helping'” those they tortured and “serving a ‘greater good,’” about doctors walking around torture chambers to make sure their subjects would not fall unconscious “in order to keep doing ‘their’ ‘work.'” Those “truly patriotic” @ssh0l3s would openly say they should torture all Brazilians to see who were “the true patriots.”
I find sadly amazing that USG commissioned “projects” of many well-known University departments as part of MKUltra (of course, they could figure out what they were actually doing). However, as it happened with Nazi-era psychologists, they never denounced or came clean about it as a service to history and civility. As a high ranking member of APA put it himself: “I’m a psychologist, was a member of APA at the time, and a member of the intelligence community. Why not provide input?” Yeah! Why not? You can be a psychologist and an @ssh0l3 too, just as you could be a well- read child molester. He seemed to have missed those lessons in Psycho 101. Recently, Germany’s Supreme Court ruled the involuntary treatment of patients illegal. USG has been, very involuntarily indeed, putting people under Zersetzung. Is “freedom-loving”, “patriotic” , “God-blessed” Zersetzung legal?, OK?
Ricardo Camilo López biography: I was born July 14th, 1960 and raised in Havana Cuba in a family of high-profile political dissidents, artists and anarchists. My single mother very directly influenced my own perception of my very stressful environment and outer societal reality, and indirectly fostered my interest in science and mathematics (as my way out). Eventually, I got a scholarship to the Technical University of Dresden in East-Germany, were I graduated as a Theoretical Physicist in 1986. After being offered political asylum by the US State Department and my “exit permit” being denied, I escaped Cuba on a raft 1994 after which I was put in Guantánamo for 1 year. I currently work as a Math teacher in NYC.
