Surveillance/Gang stalking call it what you will this is partly how it’s done

Surveillance/Gang stalking call it what you will this is partly how it’s done


visit my website at higherinsight.webs.com/

After a few years of being made aware that I was under surveillance, via phone tapping it increased in scope to having people show to me they were deliberately watching me. I shrugged it off as I felt watch all you like I am not doing anything wrong. I was intrigued though as to why this was happening and asked various people who knew of such things why and I got various answers. I previously have made a video that covers some of this.



In 2001 a documentary went out on TV http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1559939/fullcredits

Surveillance –The paranoid years. Written and directed by Kate Williams. I watched and scrutinised every part of it in an attempt to grasp insight into the thinking behind my predicament. I took notes and yesterday came across those old notes I kept. I searched the documentary on the net but could only find the above posted link.

The program was so informative and my notes now I can see eleven years on were truly valid and would be to others under surveillance/gang stalking today. I therefore have decided to type them into a blog for all to gain knowledge from. I hope this doesn’t break any copyright law as it is not my intent, but will respectfully remove if told to do so.


Here are my notes:-


Paranoia years

50 years of cold war was paranoia surveillance. State paranoia –state voyeurism = the more it looks, the more it hears, = the more it wants to hear, wants to look.

Different forms in different countries – but all took on pathological of proved proportions.

Surveillance psychosis, where no amount of watching is never enough.

Need to know everything or don’t know nothing and because, can’t know everything – you always know nothing!!!!


1, Induce sense of fear

Watch potential subversives

Wire tape = need approval

Bug = pick up everything = No accountability. Need to break in to plant bugs.

Workers: Find out daily routines –speak to landlord, get keys.

Because illegal – they were on their own.

No identity to carry linking with intelligence, not known by them if caught.


Other types – surveillance let you know you’re being watched.

‘Just because your paranoid, doesn’t mean you’re not being followed’.

Create Paranoia -surveillance real tight so notice it.

1, tailing car

2, on foot

To create paranoia –drive person to the edge.

1, Make it obvious – so think they everywhere – they weren’t but they believe it.

Watch for years –irrelevant if they commit crime.

Can go on for years - ‘Paranoia is you search until you find’ – even if you don’t find, never stop- once seen as security subject –follow at infinitum.



Friends /talk to FBI

Obtain files through ‘freedom of information act’.

Falsehoods and truths – about perfectly legal conduct.

Lack of evidence of any threat, seen as sign that not enough surveillance.

Paranoia affects whole surveillance operation. Even when nothing found won’t quit.


In Britain

Different to USA 


Not so much equipment. More through conversations, to discover who was/was not to be trusted, thus keep potential subversives out of positions of influence in public life.

E.g. Journalists – which support state.

May be sympathetic to foreign power or way of life that isn’t exactly British, watch students.

BBC –seen to be clean of political undesirables.

MI5 – Held lists, not to be appointed – handed over to BBC.


Special stamp on personal stamp – e.g. Christmas tree – meant other files are held elsewhere =security papers.


1, Communist

2, 60’s = invented new target created – Civil rights movement (e.g. Black)

Problem –

Info cannot be used as obtained illegally, so used to discredit individual.

1, Dissemination, used to raise questions on integrity, character of individual,

 Thus their movement = purposeful monitoring.

Co-Intel –pro

Specifically designed to destroy suspect

Target specific organisation for

1, Harassment

2, Disruption

3, Discrediting


Black Panther - Target

Technique used against

1, Plant information reports

2, Say one sleeping with another ones wife.

3, Talk to employer, get them fired.

4, Get them put in jail – didn’t need to violate law.

Any organisation heard of will be investigated.

Surveillance itself, creates investigation, the more know – the more want to know


Collect so much,

Intelligence /mafia responsible to no-one but themselves.


Starsi East Germany

Also interested in emotions, feelings, desires and weaknesses of people.

1-200 ratios were spies to control population.

Pathology of surveillance, need to grow. Always have to expand structure.

Every aspect of society was watched – no age exceptions.



Must learn to decide who is your friend or not your friend.

= you control yourself.

-          Feeling alone


Open surveillance


‘Active view – of psychology, with the individual, on behalf of individual, but also against the individual’.

One of the principles of surveillance is to turn subjects into informers.

But other uses ->

Had methods for creating


-Love and care

-Trusting relationships

But if people refused to take up hand of friendship –

Then more aggressive form of surveillance activated.

Making obvious

Agents make themselves highly visible –

1, Ring door bell anytime day/night

2, Open mail

3, Things happened in people’s homes


To make them insecure, ‘everything you do is known to us, we see everything’.



No private space

Microphone in house, near bed –

Make you think what do they want to know?

All behaviour /thought influenced by securities actions.


Society becomes dysfunctional

You change behaviour,

Write in love letter not reality, as think over before, should you say you love –or hide.

End up with 2 realities.

1, Real life

2, Pretend life; to create second level of reality


The surveyors themselves couldn’t distinguish themselves between the false realities.

They themselves would project their own obsessions onto their subjects.

1, Read file get facts, but their own weaknesses that they transfer onto their opponent.


Almost anybody surveys find reports of 2/3 sexual relations that they didn’t have, it is not reality, may of liked to have had.

Files are full of sexuality that’s not true!!!

The psychosis caused by total surveillance made it impossible for the system to survive.

Climate in society died. All relations were out of depth. As it is against human nature to be controlled.


State paranoia not going away


50 miles of spy corridors in USA.

Britain – GCHQ

Claim they only watch the new enemy within, the terrorist, drug dealers, but some say ‘their philosophy is to watch us all, just in case’.

Conduct broad mass surveillance, all babies watched to see who they will turn out to be.



Well even though this was made in 2001 I find it to be very true in reflecting a lot of what I experience today....the internet has given the mass surveillance they desired. And my work is becoming increasingly harder to Google/find on net each day. Whilst other ‘truth’ speakers seem to be easy to find.


Here is another video I made on my personal experience around gang stalking...

WORLD WAR 3 looming as RUSSIA sends WAR SHIPS to Syria

WORLD WAR 3 looming as RUSSIA sends WAR SHIPS to Syria

UPDATED Syria vote: Richard Drax only Dorset MP to vote against government

Richard Drax - the only MP with any guts around here...the rest would kill innocent women and children - for what???


Syria vote: Richard Drax only Dorset MP to vote against government                                       

Syria vote: Richard Drax only Dorset MP to vote against government                

SOUTH Dorset MP Richard Drax was the only Dorset MP to vote against the government in the Syria vote.

Mr Drax was among 30 Conservative and nine Liberal Democrat MPs who voted against the motion proposed by Prime Minister David Cameron.

West Dorset MP Oliver Letwin voted with the government.

  The others all voted with David Cameron. Annette Brooke abstained.

The motion proposed a ‘strong humanitarian response’ to the use of chemical weapons which if necessary could require military action which was ‘legal, proportionate and focused’ on saving lives by ‘preventing and deterring further use of Syria’s chemical weapons.’ Speaking after the motion had been defeated Mr Cameron said: “The British Parliament, reflecting the views of the British people, does not want to see British military action. I get that, and the Government will act accordingly.” 

Mr Drax said he believed it was not in the UK’s national interest to get involved in Syria.

He said he believed that dropping missiles would only inflame and exacerbate.

He said: “I don’t see what firing missiles into Syria would do.” 


He added: “Bombs don’t solve problems. Boots on the ground is possibly the only realistic solution to relieve a situation like Syria. But that isn’t going to happen.”

Mr Drax added that the UN had not finished their current investigation.

He said he supported humanitarian support and aid.

Mr Letwin said that the world would be a less safe place to live if the use of chemical weapons went unchallenged, but he said he recognised the will of Parliament.

He said: “Personally, I believe that it would have been right for Britain to participate in this limited intervention.

“Contrary to the impression given in some quarters, we remain one of the very few countries with a military capacity to engage in an intervention of this kind and, if the large-scale use of chemical weapons goes unchallenged, our world will ultimately be a less safe and a less decent place in which to live.”

He added: “But I recognise that the will of Parliament – undoubtedly coincident in this case with the current majority view of the British public - must prevail.

“Clearly, given Parliament’s decision on this matter, we will not now be able to take any active part even in a highly-targeted, carefully judged and brief intervention to deter the further use of chemical weapons."



Exclusive: CIA Files Prove America Helped Saddam as He Gassed Iran

The U.S. knew Hussein was launching some of the worst chemical attacks in history -- and still gave him a hand.


The U.S. government may be considering military action in response to chemical strikes near Damascus. But a generation ago, America's military and intelligence communities knew about and did nothing to stop a series of nerve gas attacks far more devastating than anything Syria has seen, Foreign Policy has learned.

In 1988, during the waning days of Iraq's war with Iran, the United States learned through satellite imagery that Iran was about to gain a major strategic advantage by exploiting a hole in Iraqi defenses. U.S. intelligence officials conveyed the location of the Iranian troops to Iraq, fully aware that Hussein's military would attack with chemical weapons, including sarin, a lethal nerve agent.

The intelligence included imagery and maps about Iranian troop movements, as well as the locations of Iranian logistics facilities and details about Iranian air defenses. The Iraqis used mustard gas and sarin prior to four major offensives in early 1988 that relied on U.S. satellite imagery, maps, and other intelligence. These attacks helped to tilt the war in Iraq's favor and bring Iran to the negotiating table, and they ensured that the Reagan administration's long-standing policy of securing an Iraqi victory would succeed. But they were also the last in a series of chemical strikes stretching back several years that the Reagan administration knew about and didn't disclose.

U.S. officials have long denied acquiescing to Iraqi chemical attacks, insisting that Hussein's government never announced he was going to use the weapons. But retired Air Force Col. Rick Francona, who was a military attaché in Baghdad during the 1988 strikes, paints a different picture.

Don't Miss

"The Iraqis never told us that they intended to use nerve gas. They didn't have to. We already knew," he told Foreign Policy.
According to recently declassified CIA documents and interviews with former intelligence officials like Francona, the U.S. had firm evidence of Iraqi chemical attacks beginning in 1983. At the time, Iran was publicly alleging that illegal chemical attacks were carried out on its forces, and was building a case to present to the United Nations. But it lacked the evidence implicating Iraq, much of which was contained in top secret reports and memoranda sent to the most senior intelligence officials in the U.S. government. The CIA declined to comment for this story.
In contrast to today's wrenching debate over whether the United States should intervene to stop alleged chemical weapons attacks by the Syrian government, the United States applied a cold calculus three decades ago to Hussein's widespread use of chemical weapons against his enemies and his own people. The Reagan administration decided that it was better to let the attacks continue if they might turn the tide of the war. And even if they were discovered, the CIA wagered that international outrage and condemnation would be muted.
In the documents, the CIA said that Iran might not discover persuasive evidence of the weapons' use -- even though the agency possessed it. Also, the agency noted that the Soviet Union had previously used chemical agents in Afghanistan and suffered few repercussions.
It has been previously reported that the United States provided tactical intelligence to Iraq at the same time that officials suspected Hussein would use chemical weapons. But the CIA documents, which sat almost entirely unnoticed in a trove of declassified material at the National Archives in College Park, Md., combined with exclusive interviews with former intelligence officials, reveal new details about the depth of the United States' knowledge of how and when Iraq employed the deadly agents. They show that senior U.S. officials were being regularly informed about the scale of the nerve gas attacks. They are tantamount to an official American admission of complicity in some of the most gruesome chemical weapons attacks ever launched."

Charged: 83-year-old Rolf Harris is the biggest name to face trial as a result of Scotland Yard's Operation Yewtree

Rolf Harris maintained his nine-month long silence over sex allegations yesterday as he was charged with indecently assaulting two under-age girls in the 1980s.

The 83-year-old entertainer did not comment publicly after Operation Yewtree detectives also charged him with downloading four indecent images of children last year.

The married father-of-one is the highest profile celebrity to be charged as a result of the Yewtree probe, which was set up in the aftermath of the Jimmy Savile scandal.

But he has not issued a formal statement on the allegations since he was first quizzed by police last November.

There was no sign of Harris – a favourite of the Queen – at his riverside home in Berkshire yesterday and no mention of the developments on his website. His lawyer and publicist did not return messages requesting a statement.

Harris is charged with six counts of indecently assaulting a girl aged between 15 and 16, from 1980 to 1981. Each offence carries a maximum two-year sentence.

He is further charged with three offences of indecently assaulting a girl aged 14, in 1986. As a result of a law change, which increased the punishment for offences committed after 1985, the maximum jail term is ten years.

The TV presenter and acclaimed artist is also charged with four offences of making indecent images of a child between March and July 2012. The offence carries a maximum ten-year sentence.

After spending nine months investigating the allegations against Harris, including making well-documented background inquiries in Australia, Scotland Yard passed a file on the case to the Crown Prosecution Service on August 12.

Alison Saunders, chief prosecutor for CPS London, said: ‘Having completed our review [of the evidence], we have concluded that there is sufficient evidence and it is in the public interest for Mr Harris to be charged with nine counts of indecent assault and four of making indecent images of a child.’ Harris will appear at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on September 23.


In public: Harris was interviewed under caution on November 29 last year after his house was searched, and has been rarely seen since - shown here in January

The entertainer was interviewed under caution by detectives on November 29 last year, five days after a search warrant was executed at his home in Bray near Maidenhead. He was formally arrested over the allegations on March 28 but although he was widely named on Twitter as being a Yewtree suspect, he was not identified by the mainstream media until April.

Yewtree has been run in three strands – claims involving Savile, those involving Savile and others, and those involving others. Harris is being dealt with under the ‘others’ strand, meaning the allegations have no link to Savile.

The Australian, who painted a portrait of the Queen in 2005 and performed at her Diamond Jubilee concert last year, has been a family favourite for decades. He had his first musical hit Tie Me Kangaroo Down, Sport in 1960, and continued to enjoy success in the industry, gaining cult status in recent years and performing at Glastonbury festival several times.

He also proved popular as a television presenter, getting his first big break in 1967 when he began hosting his own BBC1 programme, The Rolf Harris Show, before moving on to children’s television in the 1980s and then to Animal Hospital, which he hosted from 1994 to 2004.

The 13 charges against him


Harris, who has lived in Bray for more than 50 years, was awarded an MBE in 1968, an OBE in 1977 and a CBE in 2006, and was made Officer of the Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list last year.

At last summer’s Diamond Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace, Harris famously led the crowd in an impromptu rendition of Two Little Boys, his 1969 Christmas No 1 hit.

Harris’s wife is the Welsh sculptress and jeweller Alwen Hughes.

They met while they were both art students, marrying in 1958. They have one daughter, Bindi, a painter, now aged 49.

His friends were in shock after he was charged yesterday. Veteran singer Vince Hill, who has known the Australian celebrity for more than 50 years, said: ‘I can’t find words to describe my shock and disbelief. This just isn’t the Rolf I know.’

Hill, 82, admitted his biggest worry was for the star’s ailing wife Alwen. ‘She’s crippled with  arthritis, suffers problems with her hips and knees and is in her 80s,’  he said.

General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned - Seven Countries In Five Years

 This is from 2008, but is more relavent than ever now...


 General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned - Seven Countries In Five Years



Uploaded on 22 Jul 2008

Wesley Clark, September 30th, 2006

"General Wesley Clark:

Because I had been through the Pentagon right after 9/11. About ten days after 9/11, I went through the Pentagon and I saw Secretary Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary Wolfowitz. I went downstairs just to say hello to some of the people on the Joint Staff who used to work for me, and one of the generals called me in. He said,

"Sir, you've got to come in and talk to me a second." I said, "Well, you're too busy." He said, "No, no." He says,

"We've made the decision we're going to war with Iraq." This was on or about the 20th of September. I said, "We're going to war with Iraq? Why?" He said, "I don't know." He said, "I guess they don't know what else to do." So I said,

"Well, did they find some information connecting Saddam to al-Qaeda?" He said, "No, no." He says, "There's nothing new that way. They just made the decision to go to war with Iraq." He said, "I guess it's like we don't know what to do about terrorists, but we've got a good military and we can take down governments." And he said,

"I guess if the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem has to look like a nail."

So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, "Are we still going to war with Iraq?" And he said, "Oh, it's worse than that." He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, "I just got this down from upstairs" -- meaning the Secretary of Defense's office -- "today." And he said,

"This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." I said, "Is it classified?" He said, "Yes, sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me." And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, "You remember that?" He said, "Sir, I didn't show you that memo! I didn't show it to you!"

INFOWARS SAYS: "Report: US Attack On Syria to Begin Saturday " - LETS JUST SEE!!


Onslaught to begin when UN inspectors leave

Paul Joseph Watson
August 29, 2013

A reporter with Israel’s most widely read newspaper has been told by defense establishment officials that a US-led attack on Syria will begin on Saturday and end when Barack Obama meets Vladimir Putin on Wednesday.


Despite an apparent softening in rhetoric as British Prime Minister David Cameron faces a parliamentary revolt over military intervention, in addition to reports that the intelligence against Assad’s regime is by no means a “slam dunk,” Israel Hayom reporter Amir Mizroch tweets that the attack will begin on Saturday immediately after UN inspectors have left the country.

Inspectors had initially planned to leave on Sunday after concluding their investigation but their departure a day early has increased speculation that air strikes are imminent.

British and American military might is now fully in place and prepared for strikes which experts say will take the form of Tomahawk land-attack cruise missiles fired from warships or submarines.

Mizroch also highlights remarks made by former Mossad director Danny Yatom, who says that the apparent delay on green lighting military strikes is only so Bashar Al-Assad can’t use the UN inspectors as human shields.

Mizroch was also told that Israel sent Assad a message via Russia threatening that if Syria attempts to attack Israel, Damascus will be targeted and Assad’s regime will be toppled.

This threat was made despite attempts by Gulf nations to secure a promise from Israel that it would act with restraint if Syria attempts retaliatory strikes against Israel in response to a western onslaught. Israel replied that it would act with restraint, but only if aggression against it “did not exceed reasonable bounds.”

In a related story, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro has promised a “strong and serious response,” to Assad’s alleged chemical atrocity last week, despite American officials admitting to the New York Times that there is no “smoking gun” that directly links President Assad to the attack.

US intelligence officials also told the Associated Press that the intelligence proving Assad’s culpability is “no slam dunk,” a far cry form the Obama administration’s rhetoric, which held that Assad’s responsibility was “undeniable.”

Talk of the town in Jerusalem isn't what we'll have for dinner on New Years Eve which falls next Wednesday night, but rather "did you get your gas mask yet"?
This time around, one can even order one via the post office. Nothing like a good scare to keep Israelis on their toes during the upcoming holiday season ... this time around Israelis will be prepared, unlike the 'sneak attack' on Yom Kippur in 1973.
Even HaAretz has joined the frenzie in an Editorial today ....
But .... in my home, the talk is around what to serve with the brisket .... no time for war talk in the reality zone I live in :)
Bon Appetite!
Following is the blurb from HaAretz ...

Where to get a gas mask in Israel

A gas mask kit can be obtained by either going to one of the Home Front Command's distribution centers, or ordering one via the Israeli Postal Service.

In light of reports of a possible U.S. strike on Syria, Israelis have been scrambling to get their hands on gas masks to prepare for a possible retaliation on Israel. While the Home Front Command has not called on citizens to obtain gas masks, many have already flocked to distribution points to pick up the kits.
If you are in Israel, looking to obtain a gas mask, here is how you can go about doing so.
The Home Front Command runs a user-friendly English-language website that provides information and guidance on various subjects pertaining to the obtainment and usage of gas masks, early warning alerts, and various other topics. 
According to the website, a gas mask kit can be obtained in two ways: 
1. By going to one of the distribution stations (listed below)
2. By ordering one via the home delivery service of the Israel Postal Authority. This  service is accompanied by a delivery fee of NIS 25. For additional information on the service, contact the Israel Postal Authority's call center at *2237 or visit the Israel Postal Authority website.
The following list of gas mask kit distribution centers and their hours of activity is a translation of the one provided on the postal service's Hebrew website. Hours and dates of operation are subject to change. It is recommended to call the Home Front Command information hotline for updates. Its telephone number is 104.
UPDATE: As of August 29, all gas mask distribution centers to remain open until 7 P.M. due to mass request.
