The Cult of Bill W.'s AA revisited: gang stalking and the policing of anonymity as the National Sherrifs Association polices privacy.

AA,NA, GANG STALKING, AND THE HIDDEN HAND OF THE HIGHER POWER:YOU ARE NOT ANONYMOUS IN AA, OR ANY OTHER RECOVERY INDUSTRY CULT because the National Sheriffs Association and local LEOs, working under due process defying community policing schemes are always there to stalk you, or someone you know in “recovery.”
Bill W. aka Bill Wilson was both a proponent of LSD use, and documented as having occulted ties to both hidden western religion (occult ) and CIA programs of social control.

Read: AA and the occult and also this from the Guardian UK, about Bill W. and the well documented CIA LSD program

POLICE USE AA AND NA, etc. MEETINGS TO GATHER EVIDENCE, OR WAGE PSYCHOLOGICAL COERCION, OR INTERROGATION ON TARGETED INDIVIDUALS WHO CANNOT OR WILL NOT BE CONFORMED/COERCED INTO THE JEWISH-CHRISTIAN NARRATOLOGY OF SUBMISSION TO HIDDEN BAD ACTORS AND OCCULTISTS, AKA “HIGHER POWERS”which most frequently are church and police affilliated Masonic lodges, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, etc., all of which have been.implicated with solid evidence to “organized gang stalking. ”
Worse, judges, prosecutors, social workers and psychologists are indeed complicit in it, frequently deriving income and other sicial benefits from denying that gang stalking is, “real.”
Then, the multi -billiin dollar cottage industry of “recovery programs” work directly with those denialists, FREQUENTLY REQUIRING AA/NA/SA/ETC AA, as a term and condition of a persons freedom,  as a range of other “healthcare providers” derive billions too.

MANY ORGANIZED STALKINGS BEGIN WITH OCCULTED POLICE INVESTIGATIVE PRIVILEGE/SLANDER CAMPAIGNS, AND THE JUDICIAL, INSTITUTIONAL BLUR BETWEEN RIGHTS AND LAWS OF DUE PROCESS AND RIGHTS TO ANONYMITY, AND THE PSEUDO-THERAPY, PSEUDO -PSYCHOLOGY OF AA.

It cannot be forgotten that when.a, “gang of police ” murdered Ahmaud Arbery, the conservative Jewish -christian smear machine cranked up slanders in the press about his “mental health ”

How western police uphold the Jewish christian (and now, Islamic) mythology of God, G_d, Gawd, THE LAWD /LORD/Allah  and its variants of submission to hidden superstition oriented narrative of mental health, and victims of the hidden hand of gas lighting and privacy invasion by policing mechanisms that defy law and order.
Here is the National Sherrifs statement on mental health, via Policemag online:
http://www.policemag.com/channel/patrol/articles/2007/06/mentally-ill-subjects.aspx
OGS is widely recognized as having only two categories of discourse: OGS victims, and OGS denialists. It is striking to note that of these two binary groups, all OGS denialists are, in some way, direct beneficiaries of the DVIC money pot, while OGS victims are NOT beneficiaries of the DVIC money pot.
The researcher of OGS can easily find empirical evidence of this claim anywhere and everywhere onlune, or, just read through ROGS here, where you will find this scientific, falsifiable proof of OGS.
Then, we also see that Alcoholics Anonymous-like Scientology-sprang up just after the Federal Reserve displaced rural Americans, and eugenically targeted their families, during the 1930’s, and the Great Depression.
Related Story: AA Mobbing is “Bill W. on acid~ literally. Here is Bill W. droping CIA supplied acid, in the era of Frank Olson, who met his fateful end after “falling” from the 13th floor of a hotel, while doped up on acid, as a CIA handler sat next to him.”
Today, many sane people, and those who use reason to solve social problems, are calling these industries what they are: out dated models of cult/sectarian control of our society by the usual suspects.
And, extra points in your ROGS Bingo card for noticing that all of the mobbing, directed conversations, and other bizarre, repeated activity by police, occulted in gang stalking roles strangely mirrors the exact activities used in psychic driving.
Look around ROGS here for evidence that this is so, and also, that therapists all deny that gang stalking is real.

recovery is riddled with National sheriff association members as well as national citizens patrol association they are orginized and when they get your number due to step work or what not conversations you may have, they will turn your life inside out. The gassilghting is illegal and they ignor this it is wide spread. yes they will follow you in to all aspects of your life and reack havock by recurting persons to harass the target anyway possible. the first Narcotics Anonymous was held in a police station owned building this was not a mistake law enforcement has been stalking persons who attend these meetinsg for years.
Old timers as well as newcomers the opertives are diverse by design to build friendships and trust to intrap the target then in a moments time they orginize the group against a single person. i am a victom i am looking to build repor with other victims Robboy39 youtube.

….follow the links and connect the dots© in your own case!
AND:How deeply are OGS denialists involved in downplaying Bill Ws dabbling with CIA drugs and cult control?
Ask the addictionologists! (addictionology is a pseudo-science similar to ponerology,the study of human evil, lol.) This is how far Jewish-christians will go to mask their occulted religion in secular society.

How to gain legal standing to sue the NSA: "the Tor Exception" and Marcy Wheeler aka emptywheel tell you how.

SOoooO…shit.
The cows are coming home to roost, finally. And, they are taking huge craps on journalism AGAIN.
It really suX to be “that one guy” or gal in Marcy Wheeler’s case, who is “way the [email protected] ahead of ‘the game,’ because then, you get totally gang stalked for decades as the NSA/FBI/CIA/FiveEyes/Israel backdoor butt buddies cornhole all of your communications, and send hidden subverter’s of law and justice into your every relationships in what is called colloquially “organized gang stalking.”

UPDATE: Marcy Wheeler turned into an FBI informant, as soon as she became targeted by the deep state, and even wrote about it.

Or, as some have noted, “being accosted, assaulted, delayed, redirected, or robbed outright by the ‘Are You Jewish’ guys.”
All of these subversions are what the Association of Threat Assessment Professionals calls “the colliding parallel investigation, ”as they discuss in their crisis narrative formation, aka “advising law enforcement ” how to discuss this NSA-Israel spying on citizens, and the accompanying psychological operations waged covertly on yargeted persons across America who have no idea what hit them; and, that are causing mass homicides across America.
Fifth column indeed- and talk about burying the lede! Pierre Omidyar has shown his fur, and the Intercept has been invaded by the Sterns Gang!
Ask James Risen about that-he’d probably disagree, but at least organized stalking is coming out of the woodwork finally, and then, use my search feature to find posts about how Tor is subverted and “captured” and “entrapped” directly, and always, BY THE NSA, which technically, gives every single Tor user ‘legal standing’ to sue for section 702 spying on American’s abuses, because the Tor user can ‘prove’ that they are spied on PERSONALLY by the NSA Data Theft Pipeline Bandits.
Yup-privacy rape is a real thing, and emptywheel covers it like John Ashcroft on the statue of Lady Justice, but in a “good touch” way.

no plates USPS2
Are you there SOD-it’s me, the “Whisperette” [sounds of the Constitution gagged and bound like a kidnapping victime in the back of a postal van, then: “GrrgggHhh!” Then: radio crackle. “Did someone mention Tor??! Standing??”

stern-gang-irgun-betar-syria-civil-war-jihadists
Ruthie: That WHORE! Who said Tor!? Riva: Ruthie, I think he’s just kidding-he said “Your so pretty in that clever hat, which rhymes with vintage Sterns Gang Gat.”

Unlike all of those vagina hat wearing morons that have taken over the Democratic Party everywhere for the sake of weeping vahjayjay’s, Marcy Wheeler focuses on “civil liberties for EVERYONE” instead of those who have a mysterious sacred Isis Temple where they get together and talk about “safe spaces and the sense of belonging when being used like “a Liberty Torch,” and then, march about the worlld in an endless killing spree, to the tune of the bankster’s as hey light the Constitution on fire, and then look around and cry “But there’s nothing to put the fire out!” havng burned down the Barn.
I myself prefer the analogy of being a Maxi-Pad for freedom, because I feel less cramped, and more free,  but each to their own.
Here’s Marcy on the “Tor Exception,”which helps every single American to begin to wage a case where they can prove beyond any reasonable doubt that they have been personally targeted, and spied on:

Organized gang stalking and silencing and SAM's: Special Administrative Measures are what gray area policing IS.

Lynne Stewart-the “terrorists lawyer” speaks from the grave.
As you can see by the headline there, ROGS is a blog that asks the questions that could get a guy killed by the “good guys.” You see, in a police state-every police state- the good guys HATE journalists and lawyers-especially criminal defense lawyers, cuz’ “We don’t need no steenking warrant” and all that other hero stuff (apologies for my bad, stereotypical accent to any Latino’s and especially the Senor Gomez and family who invaded my class room a couple years back with bad street theater. But the word “steenking” is actually James Cagney, imitating George Raft, imitating someone from the middle east.)
*SIGH* I guess that is the short history of journalism in America. I mean- at least America isn’t “Bleeding Kansas”-yet.
Not that the Israelification and the ADLification of American police isn’t trying real hard to make it so, though….

Reynolds's Political Map of the United States 1856.jpg
Bleeding Kansas: journalists were tarred, feathered, and murdered for reporting on racist raiders who tried to turn us into slavers.

And, I have pointed readers of the future to who it is that might do me in, and specifically, I have implicated the NSA data theft as a starting point; and certainly, it is widely known that the center of my claim is that hey have spied on me since 2004, and that, specifically targeted me as I have documented throughout this blog.  I have also noted that mysterious secret society members show up in my life (the last several years have all the “good people” from the Rotary Club International setting up stake outs next to my apartments, or otherwise doing stuff like THIS that the MSM doesn’t cover.)
I have moments of pure bliss though, when I see a story that I covered some 13 years ago finally make it into the MSM, or the Intercept. That’s how far behind into the dark ages that the Democrat neocons have pushed free speech.
Here- Look: just yesterday, Aviva Stahl covered Lynne Stewart, the “terrorists lawyer” who was a target of nefarious police conduct for several decades, because as Stewart told me once that cops, and  The NYPD HATED her (and so did those pork-nosed assclowns whose slogans say “Stop HATE!” and “End HATE! and “A World of Deference” and so on).

A prisoner prohibited from speaking to his family for four months after uttering the words “As-Salaam-Alaikum.” Books that have to be destroyed after one prisoner reads them, lest he somehow use the pages to pass along secret notes. Letters to family members that have to be copied and analyzed by intelligence officers before they are sent out, meaning they may take months and months to arrive.
These are the types of restrictions faced by a small number of prisoners locked up in the United States, including some people who have never been convicted of a crime The rules, called Special Administrative Measures, or SAMs, are the subject of a recently released report by the Center for Constitutional Rights and Yale Law School’s Allard K. Lowenstein’s International Human Rights Clinic. The study, an unusual undertaking, makes the case that SAMs violate both U.S. and international law, threaten basic constitutional protections, and may even constitute torture.

Prisoners who have previously been subject to this sort of detention describe the experience as like being in a world unto itself.

Just about 50 prisoners nationwide were subject to SAMs as of June this year, most of them Muslim. Prisoners who have previously been subject to this sort of detention describe the experience as like being in a world unto itself, in which they have no human contact with anyone other than their lawyers and very occasional, highly restricted communication with immediate family members. Many of those on SAMs have developed mental health issues as a result of the isolation, which may prevent them from contributing to their own defense. Moreover, people under SAMs are prohibited from contacting the media, and their attorneys and family members could be prosecuted for revealing anything the prisoner has said — meaning the highly restrictive world of SAMs is highly secretive, too.
“I wouldn’t be able to publicly repeat anything a SAMs client might have told me, whether about her health, her conditions, her treatment by guards, the weather, what she ate for lunch,” said Pardiss Kebriaei, a senior staff attorney at the Center for Constitutional Rights who has represented clients on SAMs in the past. “Every utterance is off limits, even if it is in no reasonable way linked to safety and security.”
Justice Department officials have claimed that SAMs are a crucial tool in the government’s national security arsenal, an assertion fiercely disputed by defense attorneys of terrorism suspects as well as human rights advocates. Among the most serious concerns raised in the CCR report is that the government uses SAMs to coerce accused terrorists into pleading guilty or sharing sensitive information.

 
Her “crime,” long before she was “taken out” by gray area administrative rules called SAM provisions? Lynne said “I refuse to be intimidated by the police.”
And then-even worse than cowering before the authorities-she committed speech crimes, and spoke to the relatives of her client, in order to vigorously provide a defense.
See how that works- America’s police are so corrupt that they targeted and harassed people for decades with frame jobs, and set-ups; IRS audits, drive by’s and hone taps, StingRays and more. Then, they busted her for words. Because this is what cowards do.
And-silencing has become the tool of choice in the DVIC asault against speech too. see how that works? First they came for the word “fart” and then….”butterfly wing!”
And I said nothing….
It was said that Ms. Stewart was an advocate of violence every official smear online and in the news, and even Wikipedia repeat that in some form.But to my knowledge, she never caled for specific armed resistance, or otherwise advcated tat people take up arms. As far as I know, she believed as I do-that the word is mightier than the sword.
Which is why, of course, they came for her because of what she said. See how that works? Systemic violence directed at a woman, and not a single SJW stood up for her rights, because they were too busy inventing fakerape scandals like Sabrina Rubin Erdeley and the UVA rape hoax or plotting the next gold theft like they did in Benghazi.
so-words themselves have now been pushed to the edge of the slippery slope, and so, I got to thinkin’ that if there is any sad feature of the lives of targeted individuals, it is that they do not do their research-and then hunt down and maim/maul/stalk/frame/setup/or kill the exact people from the exact agencies that hunt and target them.
Really- this is a tragedy, that TI’s take out their frustrations on abortion clinics, and country music fans, and random strangers,  instead of researching who it is that their stalkers are, and then, taking names and addresses, and then, organizing, and working together in hidden ways, selectively….well you can use your imagination what you can do if you put your mind to it.
But fighting sociopaths who hide behind institutional networks of cowards is not easy. And when psychologists like Lorraine Sheridan and David V. James write studies back to back which basically state:

  1. people targeted as individuals, in illegal ways, by institutions, groups and persons using the well known and forensically described processes of OGS, and then are abused by secret societies and institutional forces- that these should be isolated, discredited, and then, returned into the control of policewho are the exact group of people that are implicated time and time and time again as the primary participants in organized gang stalking, such as we saw with the Beatrice Six,  and
  2. that we just ignore the problem of institutional sociopaths and good guys and gallies who use the lives of others as foils against insight into the huge fraud that DVIC policing initiatives are, and or to create human beings as “Manchurian Candidate’s” like mass shooters and active shooters, as we see time and again that LEO’s ranging from the FBI to the NSA, to local community policing and security guards all participate in individualized harassment, over extensive periods of time lasting sometimes for years,  until a Stephen Paddock or a Myron May-or, a Jared Loughner especially is created from whole cloth(it is wdiely reported in blogs about OGS that Loughner was stalked by official institutional elements), and so I would like to draw the journalists and the lawyers here, where we see a boy leave his mother’s house one day, excited to get a brand new, privacy protecting Apple Iphone, only to come into the conclusion that “sure, why not- I think I will just stab a few people until-coincidentally-an off duty cop shows up, whereupon I will be killed” just “happens,”
  3. that these same “caregivers” and social workers, doctors, and more frequently subscribe to the same magazine where these psychologists publish articles such as the famous “More Lies and pap: don’t let those dangerous people tell it like it is” as we saw in the case of David V. James, and his extensive body of work entitled “How to CYA with botched patients under the DVIC and CVE disruption scheme.”

http://www.newser.com/story/250508/one-whiff-of-blood-molecule-separates-hunters-hunted.html
so- as an early caasualty in COINTELPRO 2.0, yes-I practiced journalism once, and ten, watched in horror as every single thiing that I learned in classes ranging from “Journalism Ethics,” to “The AP Style Guide” and especially all those lectures from first amendment scholars, and “embedded” reporters” were literally rendered useless when this “new thing” took over.
Yah. Ethics scmethicks. Edit this punctuate that, and especially- try to write live into WordPress as the “good guys” hidden all over the cancerous backbone of the net try to perform brain surgery on the writer with J-script errors, and Ruby on Rails exploits; and metasploitation of a Tor browser, who even remember such things.
Yah, sure. Misogyny wutever. Rape-prolly not enough of it on women who do little else than worry about their vahjayjay’s. And Anthony Weiner/Weinstein/et al. God that’s hilarious.

Wordpress on Tor on NSA attack.jpg
This is one attack that I have documented of a Tor browser writing in WordPress. Note the auto-refresh attack, and the quadrupling effect of the available screen space. And, the IP went directly to Booz Allen server in Kansas, then pinged a Fusion center, and then I traced it to NSA headquarters in Maryland-but then, the browser crashed, and took my notes with it. Also, notice the “fratured” effect of the images on the screen. The CIA and other agencies use these methods to attempt to “split” the view and emotions of the viewer.

Again, I ask: when did THIS….become this….become this….*

The Shirky-Masnik bureaucracy perpetuation principle

In well organized assaults waged by governments that work in hidden capacities to enforce and socially engineer a society through constant attacks on civil liberties, we frequently find useful idiots who willingly place themselves as obstacles to free speech, and especially, as obstructionist forces that ‘steal time,’ aka ‘time-thieves.’

these are situations where people will often seek to preserve a problem or a falsehood, rather than recognize that it doesn’t need to be that way. There are lots of industries where this is a major issue.
-Mike Masnik of Techdirt.com

Organized gang stalking is one such case where we see this at work-how bureaucracies work in “the gray area of law and social oversight” to prevent insight. This is best embodied in the common phrase that appears in the OGS dialectic “what is hidden” which some use because it is a Masonic/other symbolic speech, while others use it to flaunt their access to the many hidden technologies that I document herein, as well as their ability to abuse others in this capacity.
Obstructionism and OGS are Partners in Crime and Civil Consiracy
Techdirt.com does some of the most reputable, fearless, well written public interest journalism in the history of technology-and journalism. As such, while most MSM journalists cower(or put on their knee pads and slurp down some payola) in the face of the 72 Billion dollar per year NSA/CIA/FBI/DEA privacy rape machine, Mike Masnik, and the excellent writers over there have incurred their unfair share of  detractors.
And, as can be predicted, some of those detractors are little more than liars and punks who live in their mothers basements, and guys like Shiva Ayyadurai, who claimed he invented email. And gay robotic toilet slaves, like Peter Thiel, the guy who worked hard to subvert ALL democratic liberty via the Palantir/CIA/Google collaboration. Notably, Thiel has skipped town, and run off to New Zealand, where he is hiding out, no doubt doing “special work” for his corporate and military and CIA overlords.
In the fight to demolish free speech, the MIC and its DVIC handmaidens use every dirty trick, every crooked backdoor trick to obstruct due process and civil rights; but also useful idiots like Thiel and Ayyadurai are the  backup girls for the band of merry robbers who wantonly lie, cheat or steal to destroy the rights of others while getting filthy rich. They are the contrarians of logic, and the cock-block of free enterprise; and it begins with their pillow bitingly wimpish and vain, immature, fascist impulses, attacking pure speech and then, the free press.
SO it cannot be missed that these same are also on the forefront of the technologies that are currently accessing other peoples privacy via their “inventions, and imputing to those who they steal from “intentions” that are not only false, but aslo” classic Freudian projections, and in that light, they are also perverse voyeurs.
A world of smoke and mirrors indeed. From Techdirt.com, Mike Masnik scores a victory over Shiva Ayyadurai’s perversity, and his perversion and abuse of law:

Case Dismissed: Judge Throws Out Shiva Ayyadurai’s Defamation Lawsuit n

As you likely know, for most of the past nine months, we’ve been dealing with a defamation lawsuit from Shiva Ayyadurai, who claims to have invented email. This is a claim that we have disputed at great length and in great detail, showing how email existed long before Ayyadurai wrote his program. We pointed to the well documented public history of email, and how basically all of the components that Ayyadurai now claims credit for preceded his own work.
We discussed how his arguments were, at best, misleading, such as arguing that the copyright on his program proved that he was the “inventor of email” — since patents and copyrights are very different, and just because Microsoft has a copyright on “Windows” it does not mean it “invented” the concept of a windowed graphical user interface (because it did not). As I have said, a case like this is extremely draining — especially on an emotional level — and can create massive chilling effects on free speech.
A few hours ago, the judge ruled and we prevailed.

Now- an object lesson in how all of these companies-and then, their complete subversion of intelligence agents and agencies have the ability to destroy speech at the switch. Look at this paragraph below:

The Shirky Masnik principle states that bureaucracies will d anything to perpetuate themselves-anything.. And that includes using total sh!tbags like Ayyadurai, or his counterpart in institutional sociopathy, Peter Thiel-who was so mad that he was outed as queer by Gawker media that he sued it into the dirt and put it o ut of business. to subvert the very foundations of both free economies, and free democracies.

 
Do you see the paragraph -how convoluted and broken it is? This paragraph was written as this blog, and the computer it is written with, came under ‘attack’ by ‘unknowns’ and the browser froze, and Tor reported multiple “j-script’ malfunctions. And this, just one day after the same browser, on the same computer, was crashed using an attack I cannot identify-one where the browser opened repeated multiple windows until it was useless ( I could identify it, but I am still researching that particular attack).
You see- speech itself is under attack, by the multiple agents and agencies I describe herein, and that attack is at the site of the speaker, which is me in this case, but this goes on all across democracies everywhere, as the United States, working with the Five Eyes Alliance, and literally HUNDREDS of other agencies, NGO’s target speech itself, online speech, and all other media with disruption campaigns; in this case at the site of speech itself as I type into this blog.
I document this as well as note its psychological, and ‘real world’ effects here, but elsewhere too, I have records of these attacks, which are incessant. And in the “TI” community of gang stalking victims, this is an extremely common complaint, and dis-information agents can be found mocking TI’s with comments such as “yes, I have heard that TI’s frequently complain about sticky keyboards, e-mail theft, and computer hacking.”

In fact, hacking “target’s” is what the NSA and the rest are doing, as even the famous (and well funded) “OSI informers” has noted, alongside the fact that TI’s are also targeted with other nefarious attacks such as “porn deluges.” I have preserved a copy of the web page where OSI informers makes this claim, because frequently, the web gets “scrubbed” after I validate one or another fact or tactic of these hidden operators at our internet switches, and the thousands of programs that are trained on TI’s.
Here is a snippet of “OSI informers”claim/advice:
CYBER-STALKING

Cyber Stalking or Cyber Harassment is a related group of harassing behavior occurring via internet/online. Cyber Stalking includes, but is not limited to; Computer Hacking, “Trolling”, Spamming (Often including “Porn Deluges”, Verbal Assaults, Character Assassination, and Impersonations of the victim. Online harassment is a plank of the harassment protocol. If you have a website devoted to Organized Stalking you may have people emailing you to flame you, or claiming that they are victims & asking for support with the intention of discrediting you.

Now- I will rewrite the paragraph above as it was intended, but I note that my computer literally heated up to an extreme degree, and I was forced eventually to crash the browser, reload, and change settings-this is what is called a “social engineering attack” where hidden operators force the user to change behavior, aka “behavior modification.” And I note that while my computer is less secure in this second attempt to write this post, I can write easily now. See how that works? Seeing any patterns yet?
The Shirky-Masnik Bureaucracy Perpetuation Principle
The Shirky Principle forms the headline of the following piece of writing by Mike Masnik of Techdirt.com forms the Shirky-Masnik Principle stated as below describes how OGS online has become an institutional force,with offline consequences, and especially, how writers are targeted by morons with kewl toolz directed at us from ilitary bases, police and Fusion Centers, as well as NGO’s with dominionists, zionists, and Infragard rats working behind the scenes:

Institutions Will Seek To Preserve The Problem For Which They Are The Solution

by Mike Masnick

Filed Under:
business models, innovator’s dilemma, institutions, problems, solutions


from the the-shirky-principle dept

We already wrote a detailed analysis of Clay Shirky’s recent writeup on complex business models. However, a few of you have sent over Kevin Kelly’s recent post about Shirky’s piece that also compares it to Clayton Christensen’s Innovator’s Dilemma, but thankfully highlights the one key line in Shirky’s piece that may have gotten lost in the original:

“Institutions will try to preserve the problem to which they are the solution.”

Kelly calls this the “Shirky Principle.” To me, it calls to mind Upton Sinclair’s famous line:

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

They are not the same point, but they are related. In both cases, these are situations where people will often seek to preserve a problem or a falsehood, rather than recognize that it doesn’t need to be that way. There are lots of industries where this is a major issue.
