Organized Stalking Terms Defined

TI --   Targeted Individual......Victims of Organized Stalking are often referred to as "targeted individuals"

PERP --  Perpetrators .....Those criminals who engage in Organized Stalking.

GAS LIGHTING ---   The term "Gas Lighting" originates from the 1944 film "Gaslight"...In the movie,
a husband (Charles Boyer) attempts to drive his wife (Ingrid Bergman) insane.
"Gas Lighting" simply is trying to convince a targeted individual that they are "crazy"
or "imagining things" or being "paranoid."

STREET THEATER ---  "Street Theater" is a term used to describe what organized stalkers often do to their victims while they are "out in the world" doing ordinary things, such as
shopping, taking a walk, sitting on a park bench, waiting for a bus, and etc.
One of the favorite techniques of the Perps is to follow their victim into a store orsupermarket and then arrange to be just in front of their victim as they wait in line
at the checkout counter...Often a second Perp will be behind the victim, and will
try to "crowd" the victim, or "push the victim forward" a little, causing the victim to
feel very uncomfortable....The Perp in front will often do something to cause the
line to stop or to delay the line from moving by requesting that the clerk do a
"price-check" or tell the clerk that he or she "forgot something" or some other littl
thing that will cause the line to stop, thus delaying the victim for a time, since the
victim is stuck in line directly behind the Perp.

WORKPLACE MOBBING ---  Workplace Mobbing is a term used to describe how a victim's
co-workers will sometimes "gang up" on the victim by saying things about
the victim that are not true or spreading falsehoods about the victim
throughout the workplace, with the intent being to put the victim on the
defensive or to cause trouble for the victim, especially trouble that might
cause the victim to lose their job.

COMMUNITY MOBBING ---  Similar to "Workplace Mobbing"  Community Mobbing occurs when
neighbors or others deliberately lie about the victim to other neighbors,
such as suggesting that the victim is a "drug dealer" or a "pedophile"
or some other type of "slander campaign" against the victim, which causes
the victim to feel isolated and/or friendless on his or her street, or in his or
her neighborhood or apartment building etc.

NOISE CAMPAIGN ---   Noise Campaigns are an organized effort to produce stress in an individual.
Car horns, the playing of very loud music by neighbors or by cars going by
the victim's home, or loud shouting at the victim from cars going by, or by
small children screaming loudly while walking by the victim's house.with their parents.
Often Noise Campaigns will begin at the same time each day, so that the victim
will endure additional stress anticipating the loud noises that will start, before
 they actually do start.

SLAMMING ---   "Slamming" is a term I use to describe those days when the organized stalking is
"ratcheted -up" a notch or two...In other words, when there is a detectable "increase"
in the harassment of a TI, with MORE vehicles driving back & forth in front of the
victim's home, or MORE noise than usual, or MORE surveillance planes flying over
the victim's home,,,,,,Helicopters are sometimes used to "fly over" a victim's home to
put even more stress on the victim, and to "frighten" the victim during a "Slamming."
As the Associated Press has recently reported, FBI surveillance aircraft have been
sighted flying at low altitude over American cities and rural areas,,,These aircraft have
been traced to "dummy companies" set up by the FBI to hide the fact that they are in
fact owned and operated by the FBI itself.
(I have posted blogs recently on this site about the FBI's widespread use of such
"secret" and illegal surveillance planes)

There are more terms used to describe the different techniques that the criminals who engage in organized stalking use against their "targets"...and they can be found by a simple Google search.

IS THE FBI USING SURVEILLANCE PLANES TO STALK, HARASS & TORTURE TARGETED INDIVIDUALS?

Fortress America
June 12, 2015


"FBI Admits It uses Fake Companies to Fly Surveillance Over U.S. Cities"

An Associated Press investigation has forced the FBI to admit that it uses at least 13 dummy corporations with planes to fly low-and-slow aerial spy missions over U.S. cities.

The agency's domestic flying operations have garnered headlines before, as when it's planes were caught over Baltimore during the recent unrest, or when FBI aircraft tried (and reportedly failed) to assist in catching Faisal Shahzad, the wannabe Times Square bomber.

But the Associated Press story suggests the federales are more brazen and less accountable, than you could even imagine.

"The planes' surveillance equipment is generally used without a judge's approval, and the FBI said the flights are used for specific, ongoing investigations.
The FBI said it uses front companies to protect the safety of the pilots and aircraft.
It also shields the identity of the aircraft so that suspects on the ground don't know they're being watched by the FBI.
In a recent 30-day period, the agency flew above more than 30 cities in 11 states, an AP review found.
Details confirmed by the FBI track closely with published reports since at least 2003 that a government surveillance program might be behind suspicious-looking planes slowly circling neighborhoods."

How is it done?

With a fleet of Cessnas and a simple flight procedure:

"The AP traced at least 50 aircraft back to the FBI, and identified more than 100 flights since last April orbiting both major cities and rural areas.
One of the planes, photographed in flight by the AP in northern Virginia, bristled with unusual antennas under it's fuselage and a camera on it's left side.
A federal budget document from 2010 mentioned at least 115 planes, including 90 Cessna aircraft, in the FBI's surveillance fleet.
Most flight patterns occurred in counter-clockwise orbits up to several miles wide and roughly one mile above the ground at slow speeds.
A 2003 newsletter from the company FLIR Systems Inc..which makes camera technology such as seen on the planes, described flying slowly in left-handed patterns."

Most of the aircraft registrations, the AP said, are signed by a Robert Lindley, who "is listed as chief executive and has at least three distinct signatures among the companies."
Those would be the "13 front companies that AP identified being actively used by the FBI and are registered to post office boxes in Bristow, Virginia," right by a municipal airport.

The most hideously shameless part of the FBI's subterfuge, however, may have come when it begged the AP to protect it's dummy corporations.

"The FBI asked the AP not to disclose the names of the fake companies it uncovered, saying that would saddle taxpayers with the expense of creating new cover companies to shield the government's involvement, and could endanger the planes and the integrity of the surveillance missions."

The AP laughed that one off and has posted documents on-line where you can read the names of all the FBI fake companies, including NG Research, the one that did the Baltimore surveillance last month.

What An NYPD Spy Copter Reveals About The FBI Spy Planes

Wired Magazine
June 5, 2015


It should have surprised no one that  the FBI has a secret fleet of spy planes it uses domestically to watch us,  as the Associated Press reported this week.
WIRED published a story about surveillance aircraft spotted flying in unusual patterns in California and Virginia back in 2006.
And the Wall Street Journal reported last year that the U.S. Marshall's Service has surveillance planes that use so-called "dirtboxes" to track mobile phone users on the ground.

But long before this, the New York Police Department had a high-tech helicopter that it obtained in 2003 through a government grant and exposed publicly to the media that year when it gave journalists a tour of the  $10 million dollar toy.

WIRED began investigating the chopper in 2008, and uncovered, but hasn't published until now, information about the precise surveillance components installed on it and the methods the NYPD used to conceal it's ownership and operation.
Like the FBI, the NYPD used a shell company to register the aircraft.
But the NYPD also requested special "undercover" registration handling from the FAA to thwart tracking by aviation enthusiasts who might spot it in the air and attempt to investigate the registration number associated with it.
The NYPD also asked the FAA to notify it's aviation unit if anyone contacted the agency inquiring about the aircraft.

Last month, the use of secret law enforcement aircraft began getting attention after plane spotters around the country began reporting suspicious aircraft registered to shell companies that were flying unusual routes over numerous cities.
The Associated Press caught on to the stories and this week published it's own piece identifying some 50 surveillance craft that were registered to more than a dozen shell companies.and were being used by FBI field offices around the country.

The response to that story has been mixed.
Some readers were shocked by the secret flights and Big Brother surveillance; others scoffed at the alarm the AP appeared to be inciting, arguing that spy planes are just another surveillance tool law enforcement uses to monitor suspects in areas, or for lengths of time, they couldn't otherwise monitor through conventional means by foot or car.
For example, authorities used a special surveillance helicopter with thermal imaging equipment in 2013 to spot the Boston Marathon bomber as he lay hidden beneath a tarp covering a stored boat.

But regardless of the utility of high-tech surveillance aircraft, their use raises serious questions about how many agencies are operating them in the U.S. and how exactly they're being used and to what end.

The AP story didn't provide much detail about the technology aboard the FBI planes, other than to note that some carry imaging systems that can capture "video from long distances, even at night," while others have stingrays or dirtboxes on board to capture cellphone signals.

But detailed information about what the NYPD has on board it's spy copter is available and can serve to further enlighten.
The New York Police Department is the nation's largest local law enforcement agency, and it generally leads the way in acquisition of modern equipment.
Where it goes, the rest of the country tends to follow.
So an examination of it's aerial surveillance capabilities can be instructive for understanding what other law enforcement agencies around the country may be using.

The NYPD's surveillance activities can also be instructive for another reason.
The department has repeatedly been criticized for it's over-zealous spy programs --including at least one documented case involving it's spy copter.
So concerns about abuse of such aircraft is not unfounded.

The public first learned about the NYPD's Bell 412EP surveillance helicopter in 2003 when a regional New York newspaper published a small story unveiling the recently purchased $9.8 million "jewel."
The specially modified chopper, which the department kept parked at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, was unmarked -- meaning it carried no insignia identifying it as law enforcement aircraft.
Acquired through a Justice department grant, it was customized with a photo-and-video-surveillance system capable of capturing clear images of license plates -- or the faces of individuals -- from 1,000 feet away.
It could even, the story noted, "pick up the catcher's signals at Yankee Stadium."

It was described as the "most advanced in use by any police force" at the time, and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly noted that it would be used to fight conventional crime, conduct search-and-rescue missions and "play a key role in anti-terrorism efforts."

The NYPD referred to the helicopter only as "23" -- a reference to the number of police officers killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks -- and initially the aircraft had no registration number printed on it's tail or side.'
In later investigating the aircraft, WIRED learned that in 2003 the NYPD asked the FAA to change the original registration number from N2411X to a special one containing the "23" reference -- N23FH (believed to be a reference to "23 fallen Heroes").
NYPD Deputy Inspector Joseph Gallucci also wrote the FAA at the time asking that the registration be handled in an "undercover" manner, and that "any inquiries to the registration number be flagged" and referred to Robert Kikel in the NYPD's Aviation Unit.

WIRED obtained documents for the aircraft only after learning the original registration number and filing a FOIA request to the FAA.

Five years after that 2003 story was published, the public learned more about the technology installed on the helicopter from an Associated Press article published in 2008.
That piece described three flat-screen monitors onboard that were displaying Statue of Liberty sightseers from a mile and a half away.
It also described the high-powered camera, mounted in a turret below the chopper's nose, that had infrared night-vision capabilities and satellite navigation to zoom in on any address typed into it's computer.
The system could beam live footage to police command centers below or to wireless devices in the hands of police commanders in the field.
The helicopter had been used, the story noted, to track fleeing suspects and to patrol the skies during a visit by Pope Benedict XVI to New York.

A privacy advocate interviewed for the story raised concerns about how the helicopter might be abused, but John Diazo, crew chief for the aircraft, replied: "Obviously, we're not looking into apartments....We don't invade the privacy of individuals..We only want to observe anything that's going on in public."

FBI Behind Mysterious Surveillance Aircraft Over US Cities

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP)
June 2, 2015

Scores of low-flying planes circling American cities are part of a civilian air force operated by the FBI and obscured behind fictitious companies, the Associated Press has learned.

The AP traced at least 50 aircraft back to the FBI and identified more than 100 flights in 11 states over a 30-day period since late April, circling both major cities and rural areas.
At least 150 planes, including 90 Cessna aircraft, were mentioned in a federal budget document from 2009.

For decades, the planes have provided support to FBI surveillance operations on the ground.
But now the aircraft are equipped with high-tech cameras, and in rare circumstances, technology capable of tracking thousands of cellphones, raising questions about how these surveillance flights affect American privacy.

"It's important that federal law enforcement personnel have the tools they need to find and catch criminals," said Sen. Charles Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
"But whenever an operation may also monitor the activities of Americans who are not the intended target, we must make darn sure that safeguards are in place to protect the civil liberties of innocent Americans."

The FBI says the planes are not equipped or used for bulk collection activities or mass surveillance.
The surveillance equipment is used for ongoing investigations, the FBI says, generally without a judge's approval.

The FBI confirmed for the first time the wide-scale use of the aircraft, which the AP traced to at least 13 fake companies, such as FVX Research, KQM Aviation, NBR Aviation, and PXW Services.

"The FBI's aviation program is not secret," spokesman Christopher Allen said in a statement.
"Specific aircraft and their capabilities are protected for operational security purposes."

The front companies are used to protect the safety of the pilots, the agency said.
That setup also shields the identity of the aircraft so that suspects on the ground don't know they're being followed.

The FBI is not the only law enforcement agency to take such measures.

The Drug Enforcement Administration has it's own planes, also registered to fake companies, according to a 2011 Justice Department Inspector General Report.
At the time, the DEA had 92 aircraft in it's fleet.

And since 2007, the U.S. Marshall's Service has operated an aerial surveillance program with it's own fleet equipped with technology that can capture data from thousands of cellphones, the Wall Street Journal reported last year.

In the FBI's case, one of it's fake companies shares a post office box with the Justice Department, creating a link between the companies and the FBI through publicly available Federal Aviation Administration records.

Basic aspects of the FBI's program are withheld from the public in censored versions of official reports from the Justice Department's Inspector General, and the FBI also has been careful not to reveal it's surveillance flights in court documents.

The agency will not say how many planes are currently in it's fleet.

The planes are equipped with technology that can capture video of unrelated criminal activity on the ground that could be handed over to prosecutions.

One of the planes, photographed in flight last week by the AP in northern Virginia, bristled with unusual antennas under it's fuselage and a camera on it's left side.

The Hidden Government Group....by Peter Dale Scott


Peter Dale Scott is considered the father of  "Deep Politics"-- the study of hidden permanent institutions and interests whose influence on the political realm transcends the elected, appointed and career officials who come and go.

A former English professor at U.C. Berkeley, Peter Dale Scott has written many books including:
"Drugs, Oil and War" "The War Conspiracy"  "Deep Politics and the Death of JFK"  "The Road to 911"   "Cocaine Politics"  "Minding the Darkness" and his latest book, "The American Deep State: Wall Street, Big Oil and the Attack on Democracy."

Professor Scott writes:
"For some time now I have been analyzing American history in the light of what I have called structural deep events, like the JFK assassination, the Watergate break-in, Iran-Contra, and the 9/11 attacks, which repeatedly involve law-breaking or violence, are mysterious to begin with, are embedded in ongoing covert processes, have political consequences that enlarge covert government, and are subsequently covered up by systematic falsifications in the main stream media and internal government records.

The more I study these deep events, the more I see suggestive similarities between them, increasing the possibility that they are not unrelated external intrusions on American history, but parts of an endemic process, sharing to some degree or other a common source.

For example, one factor linking Dallas, Watergate, Iran-Contra and 9/11, has been the involvement in all four deep events of personnel involved in America's highest-level emergency planning, known since the 1950s as Continuity of Government (COG) planning, or more colloquially inside the Pentagon as 'The Doomsday Project."

A few of these actors may have been located at the top, as overseers of the secret COG system.
Others were located further down in it's secret communications network.

I see this planning group as one among many in what I have chosen to call the 'American deep state,' along with agencies like the CIA and NSA, the private groups like Booz Hamilton to which more than half of the US intelligence budget is outsourced, and finally the powerful banks and corporations whose views are well represented in the CIA and NSA.

But if only one group among many, the COG planning group is also special, because of it's controls and access to a communications channel, not under government control, that can reach deeply into the US social structure.

COG planning was originally authorized by Truman and Eisenhower as planning for a response to a crippling atomic attack that had decapitated government.

In consequence it's planning group contemplated extreme measures, including what Alsonso Chardy in 1987 called 'suspension of the Constitution'

And yet, in Iran-Contra it's asset of a secret communications network, developed for the catastrophe of decapitation, was used instead to evade an official embargo on arms sales to Iran that dated back to 1979.

My question today is whether the network could have been similarly misused in November 1963."

THE AMERICAN DEEP STATE


Professor Peter Dale Scott's latest book is:
"THE AMERICAN DEEP STATE: Wall Street, Big Oil and the Attack on Democracy"
(Rowman & Littlefield, Publishers)

This provocative book makes a compelling case for a hidden "deep state" that influences and often opposes official U.S. policies.

Prominent political analyst Peter Dale Scott begins by tracing America's increasing militarization, restrictions on constitutional rights, and income disparity since the Vietnam War.

He argues that a significant role in this historic reversal was the intervention of a series of structural deep events, ranging from the assassination of President Kennedy to  9/11.

He does not attempt to resolve the controversies surrounding these events, but he shows their significant points in common, ranging from overlapping personnel and modes of operation to shared sources of funding.

Behind all of these commonalities is what Scott calls the deep state: a second order of government, behind the public or constitutional state, that has grown significantly stronger since World War ll.

He marshals convincing evidence that the deep state is partly institutionalized in non-accountable intelligence agencies like the CIA and NSA, but it also includes private corporations like 
Booz Allen Hamilton and SAIC, to which 70 percent of intelligence budgets are outsourced.

Behind these public and private institutions is the traditional influence of Wall Street bankers and lawyers, allied with international oil companies beyond the reach of domestic law.

With the importance of Gulf states like Saudi Arabia to oil markets, American defense companies, and Wall Street itself, this essential book shows that there is now a supranational deep state, sometimes demonstrably opposed to both White House policies and the American public interest.

WHAT IS ORGANIZED STALKING?


Organized Stalking, aka Gang Stalking or Multi-Stalking, is intense, long-term, covert surveillance and harassment of a targeted individual.

Domestic counter-surveillance operations of this type are perpetuated by federal agents and contractors, sometimes with the support of state and local law enforcement personnel.

The goal of such covert operations is to "subvert" or "neutralize" an individual deemed to be an "enemy" or "potential enemy."

Although the term "gang stalking" is misleading, it is accurate in the sense that the perpetrators ---- law enforcement and 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 or moral legitimacy.

This is true of all the likely major perpetrators of organized stalking in the USA:
the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. military counter-intelligence 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.

The covert tactics used by the perpetrators of organized stalking are quietly being used to suppress dissent, silence whistle-blowers, and get revenge against persons who have angered someone with connections to the public and private agencies involved.

The most well-documented example of such operations was the FBI's infamous COINTELPRO (Counter-Intelligence Programs) under the direction of J. Edgar Hoover.

These operations ran from 1956 until 1971, when they were exposed by political activists who broke into an FBI office and obtained secret documents which they handed over to the media.

COINTELPRO's official goal was to "expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit or otherwise neutralize" individuals deemed to be subversive.

As the United States Senate (Church Committee) investigation of COINTELPRO found, tactics used by the FBI included many of the methods associated with organized stalking, such as overt surveillance (stalking for psychological operations purposes).

The FBI even perpetuated such crimes as blackmail and assassinations.

Organized Stalking methods include warrantless electronic surveillance, slander, blacklisting, and a variety of psychological operations (Psy Ops).

An organized stalking victim is systematically isolated and harassed in a manner intended to cause sustained emotional torment while creating the least-possible evidence of stalking that would be visible to others.

This process is often referred to as "no-touch torture."

Methods are specifically chosen for their lack of easily-captured objective evidence.

Perpetrators use common annoyances such as honking horns, constant noise by neighbors, or rude comments and abusive behavior by strangers, but on a frequent, long-term basis.

The cumulative effects of relentless exposure to such tactics can amount to psychological torture for the victim.

A whole set of psychological operations are perpetuated against targeted individuals.

These methods include such things as threats, slander, vandalism, abusive phone calls, computer hacking, tormenting the victim with noise, and "mobbing" (orchestrated harassment by strangers, neighbors or co-workers).

Accounts by numerous victims of organized stalking share common specific details -- suggesting that the perpetrators are following a well-tested and standardized playbook of methods that have proven to be easily kept off the radar of potential witnesses and the mainstream news media.
