Death at the N.S.A.

Here are the opening paragraphs of Scott Shane's 3-30-15 New York Times article entitled "Driver Killed as Stolen Car Enters N.S.A. Campus":

"The two cross-dressing young men who had spent the night at a nearby motel with an older man and stole his car on Monday morning may not have known exactly where they were going. But they sped into a special highway exit reserved for employees of the National Security Agency.

"The agency, the country’s largest and most secretive intelligence organization, is protected by its own police force on a sprawling Maryland campus and is on permanent alert against intruders. The encounter ended with both men shot, one fatally, by agency security personnel, authorities said.

"'There’s still a lot of investigating to do,' said a law enforcement official who was briefed on the episode. 'But it seems very possible that they didn’t set out to go to N.S.A.'

"Officials said they found cocaine and at least one firearm in the stolen Ford Escape S.U.V., which was perhaps why the driver did not obey orders from N.S.A. officers to stop. Officials identified the wounded passenger in the stolen car as Kevin Fleming, 20, of Baltimore. The name of the driver, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was not disclosed by late Monday."

The Eclipse Group

A correspondent recently sent me a link to the following article, which escaped my attention when it was first published back on February 12, 2011.

What follow are excerpts from Morgan Cook's article entitled "EXCLUSIVE:  Retired CIA Spy Operates Private Agency from Home."  The "private agency" referenced in the title is known as "The Eclipse Group," and it just so happens to be located in North County, a region in the Northern area of San Diego county.  (Readers of CHAMELEO will immediately understand the significance of this.)

Feel free to tuck this article away in the "San Diego High Weirdness File":

After 33 years with the CIA, [Duane R.] Clarridge said he retired from the intelligence agency and moved in 1988 to North County to take a job in the private sector, marketing electronics for a Virginia-based defense and security company now known as BAE Systems.

He said he retired from his job at the company in 2002, and began pursuing interests such as [...] running a self-funded network of spylike operatives [...].
The network, which once was funded by a Pentagon contract, collects information about "topics of interest to the United States military," Clarridge said. He said the information has been sent to military officials who have used it in the past [...].
Clarridge [had a] career in the CIA, which was marked by great success before he was forced to retire amid an investigation of his role in the Iran-Contra affair. According to [a New York Times] article, Clarridge was indicted for lying to Congress about his role in the affair, but was later pardoned by President George H.W. Bush [...].

As a noted expert on terrorism -- he helped found the CIA's Counterterrorism Center toward the end of his career with the agency -- Clarridge said he occasionally has been sought out for consulting work in the two decades since he left the agency.

[After losing a contract with the Pentagon in 2010, Clarridge and his associates] "decided to self-fund [his private spy] operation," he said. "The people involved contributed either by not getting a salary or putting up money."

He said the end of the contract also cut off established channels to military officials. So he set up an encrypted, password-protected website through which selected officials could access the network's information, he said [...].
[H]e can communicate safely with his agents and manage the network's information using tools available to pretty much anyone [...].
"People ask, 'How? How can you do it from North County?'" he said. "And the answer is very simple: Communications today have so changed where you can work from, that you can run major operations like this, which is major, from almost anywhere where you've got reasonable communications."
Clarridge said he uses "commercial encrypted communications" that are available to the general public to safely communicate with his network [...].

Jon Rappoport Reviews CHAMELEO

Here's a brief excerpt from Jon Rappoport's 3-12-15 review of CHAMELEO:

"Robert Guffey's long awaited book, Chameleo, is in print. I received my copy a few days ago and sat down and started reading it. I couldn't stop. At times I wanted to stop, but I had to press on. The twists and turns and grotesque happenings and, yes, the laughs wouldn't let me get away."

Just a few hours ago, columnist John Hawkins published an extensive book review of CHAMELEO in THE PRAGUE POST.  You can read the entire review by clicking HERE. Endorses CHAMELEO!, the best website about the taboo subject of gangstalking, posted the following review of CHAMELEO on March 8, 2015:

A rare legitimate book about gang stalking
Chameleo Cover
From my perspective, nearly all books published (or self-published) on the subject of counterintelligence stalking are clearly pieces of U.S. government disinformation. At best, they are extremely vague and badly written – which is also the nature of U.S. government disinformation websites about gang stalking. A rare exception is the new book Chameleo by Robert Guffey. The book is the expanded version of an excellent magazine article by Guffey that was published in September 2013. The article and book describes how federal agents – apparently including members of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) – stalked and terrorized a man who was a casual acquaintance of a Marine who had stolen some military equipment and information. As with other cases of gang stalking, the process seems to have been a combination of surveillance, extrajudicial punishment, and psychological operations (“psyops”) experimentation by rogue U.S. intelligence agencies.
I encourage anyone interested in the U.S. government’s secret use of unconstitutional law enforcement methods to purchase this book. You can buy a copy of it here.
Here is an interview with the author, Robert Guffey, recorded about a year ago. The segment from minute 38 to 56 is specifically about gang stalking, but the entire interview is relevant because Guffey discusses issues such as disinformation, the promotion of fear as a means of social control, conspiracies, and dumbing-down the education process in ways which discourage independent thinking.

Jon Rappoport Endorses CHAMELEO!

Investigative journalist Jon Rappoport (author of THE SECRET BEHIND SECRET SOCIETIES, AIDS INC., and numerous other brilliant and incendiary books) has volunteered the following blurb for CHAMELEO:

"If you want to read an impossible but true story, this is the one.  Funny, weird, crazy, factual, disturbing.  Unique.  Invisible midgets are just the beginnings of the trouble.  Author Guffey somehow keeps it all together, when other writers would have laid down their swords, wept, and gone into deep narcosis.  This is Edward Snowden meets William Burroughs meets The Creature from the Black Lagoon.  The Creature is the psychotic asshole electronic agent of the Monolithic State, shooting holograms from the hip."

If an award called "The Best Blurb of 2015" existed, this would definitely take home the Top Prize.

Tod Browning's Dracula

Film scholar Gary D. Rhodes has just published a revelatory new book entitled TOD BROWNING'S DRACULA.  An excerpt of this book first appeared in James Clatterbaugh's consistently insightful magazine Monsters from the Vault #29 under the title "The Curious Undead Life of Tod Browning's Dracula."  Much of what impressed me about that original article applies to Rhodes' book-length version as well.  Though I've read a great many volumes concerning cinematic history, this is by far my favorite.  For a variety of improbable reasons, Tod Browning's Dracula has become one of the most misunderstood and underappreciated films produced in that seminal decade of the 1930s.  Though the film's influence is vast and undeniable, in recent years critics have used up countless reams of paper and hundreds of thousands of words in an attempt to prove that the film is an artistic failure on all fronts.  Since the beginning of the 1990s, there has been a trend among professional cinema scholars, as well as among amateur film buffs, to prove that George Melford's Spanish version of Dracula (produced at Universal Studios concurrently with Browning's film) is a superior adaptation of Bram Stoker's classic supernatural novel.  In fact, this was one of the core points of David Skal's 1990 book Hollywood Gothic.  Skal insists that Melford's Dracula is far more experimental cinematically than Browning's version, which is often accused of being far too stagebound and theatrical for its own good.  An example that Skal often uses to back up this viewpoint is the claim that Melford's film utilizes the moving camera far more than Browning's version; however, this and other overused examples are, more often than not, based on blatant misperceptions or outright falsehoods.  Rhodes' new book leaves no room for doubt in this regard.

Back in 2011, when I was about a quarter of the way through Rhodes' original article, I recall the following thought suddenly popping into my head:  "I've been waiting twenty years for someone to write an article like this."  Why twenty years?  At the time of the article's release, it had been about two decades since the publication of Hollywood Gothic.  Though I appreciate Skal's unique approach to film history (and I love his follow-up book, The Monster Show, even more), I suspect his stance regarding the Melford Dracula was born more out of narrative necessity than out of genuine conviction.  The idea of a lost classic emerging out of the shadow of its far more famous counterpart is a romantic notion and makes for a wonderful story arc too perfect for a genuine fabulist to resist.  Also, the Melford Dracula wasn't readily available at the time of the book's initial publication, so if you were a casual reader and not a film scholar, you had to take Skal's word for it.  I did so at the time, as did many of Skal's readers.  In the years since, however, I've grown more and more perplexed over the unthinking hostility directed toward Browning's Dracula.  I've always found the film effectively eerie, not just in its first reel, but throughout its entire seventy-five minutes.  It took Rhodes to point out, at long last, that those elements of Browning's film habitually accused of being far too stagebound are, in fact, some of the film's most effective scenes.  After all, the haunting images created in one's imagination when hearing Renfield (memorably portrayed by Dwight Frye) hiss out the words, "Rats... rats... thousands of them... millions of them," is far more disturbing than merely showing such an image through the use of base special effects.  

In Tod Browning's Dracula, Rhodes demonstrates that his conclusions are not in any way subjective; they're a product of pure mathematics, e.g., a matter of simply counting how many shots in the Browning film utilize a moving camera as opposed to the Melford version.  He then very effectively underscores how much more artistically--from a thematic point of view--Browning employs the moving camera as opposed to Melford.  
Simply put, devoid of any hyperbole whatsoever, Rhodes' new book is a game changer.  Tod Browning's Dracula is a prime example of excellent film scholarship because it's about far more than just comparing and contrasting two black and white films from the 1930s; at its core, the book is about perceptual psychology, and the fact that human beings (if told something often enough and with great conviction) tend to believe unfounded claims without first examining their veracity themselves.  Pretty soon an unsupported rumor becomes a possibility, and a possibility becomes a fact, and a fact becomes common knowledge.  Rhodes' book upends all the rumors and what-ifs and chimerical half-truths, and successfully shines the light of genuine scholarship on the facts underlying the lies that have shrouded this historically important film for the past several decades.

I urge you to purchase Rhodes' book as soon as possible, and this can be done by clicking right HERE.

Tactics for Pushing Back Against Organized Government Stalking and Mass Surveillance

My latest book, CHAMELEO, focuses on a controversial phenomenon that has come to be known as "gangstalking."  An excellent website called offers a plethora of perceptive insights into "gangstalking," a term that is often misinterpreted by those who are not aware of its true implications.  This peculiar form of government-sponsored vigilantism (yes, I'm well aware that "government-sponsored vigilantism" is a seemingly paradoxical phrase, but it's a suitable characterization nonetheless) would, perhaps, be more appropriately described as "Organized Government Stalking and Mass Surveillance."  Though this might indeed be a mouthful, the fact is that it's a far more accurate description.  I would like to highlight some of the best push-back tactics proposed by

"Targets of organized stalking must wage a two-front war: we must act locally to expose the harassment to neighbors and others, and we must expose what is happening on a national level as well. Both objectives are critical […]."

"Targeted individuals need to exploit asymmetrical warfare principles. As much as possible, we should employ tactics which are unpredictable, creative, cheap, simple and bold. The worst thing a victim of organized stalking could do would be to adopt a cautious defensive posture […]."

"We need to change the whole game and play it on our terms. Give the perps and their handlers some reasons to be uncomfortable. The way to throw a wrench into the Stasi machine is to expose its crimes to the public, and doing that sometimes requires stepping outside your comfort zone a bit […]."

"[C]ivil disobedience is a well-established, respected, and morally legitimate way to protest injustices. For targets of criminal harassment by corrupt members of law enforcement agencies and security contractors, it is even more than that; it is a necessary form of self-defense […]."

"Gang stalking perps (including corrupt members of local law enforcement agencies) will not want to attract attention to their gang stalking crimes by doing battle with you in a public way, so they have to be very reserved in their efforts to suppress your exposure of what is happening. You should exploit that […]."

"If you can afford to buy counter-surveillance and security equipment (cameras, alarm systems, locks, safes, firearms, bug detectors, signal jammers, etc.), you should do so […]."


"Based on my own experience and accounts of other targeted individuals, perps don’t like being photographed when they’re stalking you. Some will be more bothered by it more than others, but none of them will want you to do it.
"With the variety of digital cameras available (cell phones, spy cameras, etc.), you can take photos and videos either overtly or covertly. Both have advantages. If you are trying to annoy the perps, taking their photo in an obvious way, might be a good method. On the other hand, if you’re trying to document their actions, a covert spy-camera approach might be better.
"Of course, it’s unlikely that your photos and videos will have much legal significance. Perps are told to avoid doing and saying things that could be incriminating. They are normally following very specific directions from their handlers – for example, they are told to make a comment which is not explicitly threatening or slanderous, but which makes reference to something they know about you from conducting illegal surveillance.
"I encourage stalking victims to post the clearest photos of the perps online. Try to get good close-up clear shots of their faces […].
"Don’t post photos in a way that could be considered libelous. For example, don’t write a caption which says 'These are my stalkers.' Instead, say something like 'Here are some people I have seen near my residence, where I’m being gang stalked. Maybe one of these people witnessed something that could be helpful.'"
"Harassment by noise is one of the most common tactics of gang stalkers. Now it’s your turn to exploit noise: buy an air-horn. They’re cheap (they start at about $15). If you live near a store that sells boating supplies, you can get one there. Otherwise you can order one online.
"Carry it with you if you’re encountering perps on the street in your neighborhood. Use it like a rape whistle. The next time someone makes some creepy comment, take it out and blast it for a few seconds. You should probably use some ear plugs though; air-horns are loud.
"Just smile at the perp while you’re doing it. If anyone asks, tell them the truth: you’re being gang-stalked. Simple as that. If the perp asks you what you’re doing, say 'Stop gang-stalking me.' Of course, you should say it in a friendly voice and smile while saying it. You might have to speak loudly though; his ears might be ringing.
"It’s possible that someone could complain that you’re disturbing the peace, but it’s very unlikely that local cops (who will know about gang stalking) will want to make an issue of it.
"By the way, this isn’t just a theoretical tactic; I tested it."
"Since harassment by noise is one of the major tactics of gang stalkers, you might want to purchase a pair of noise-cancelling headphones ($80 to $400).
"If you cannot afford them, you might want to buy some disposable ear plugs. They will also be handy if you decide to use the air-horn tactic described above."
"Exploit this common valuable advice of anonymous origin:
'Smile. It makes people wonder what you’re up to.'
"Every time you see someone who could even possibly be a member of the local gang stalking goon squad, you should greet him or her with a big grin. Every time. Stare right at the idiot and smile.
"Even better is to combine this with the tactic explained previously – 'Use scripted responses' – by initiating a fake cell phone conversation as a pretense for mocking the perp with crude insults.
"But you should always smile at the perp. Although the 'street-level' stalkers are generally the stupidest of the various minions, even they are smart enough to understand that the goal of their efforts is to emotionally destroy their target.
"Make it clear to them that they are failures."
"Distributing pamphlets to criticize stupidity and corruption is a deep tradition which includes legendary thinkers and activists such as Thomas Paine and Lysander Spooner.
"Even after the advent of television and the Internet, pamphlets remain a powerful communication weapon to expose crimes and idiocy […]."
"Distributing flyers in your neighborhood is one of the most powerful tactics to make life difficult for the corrupt former and current members of the law enforcement industry who perpetrate gang stalking.
"You will accomplish multiple objectives by distributing flyers: (a) your neighbors will have some clue about what is happening – which could force the local street-level perpetrators to limit their harassment somewhat, (b) the local police will be forced to contend with some inconvenient questions from citizens about what is happening, (c) the (non-cowardly) members of the news media might investigate and report on it, and (d) such reporting could create pressure for members of Congress to acknowledge the reality of organized stalking – and perhaps initiate an investigation – as was done by the U.S. Senate’s Church Committee during the 1970s regarding the FBI’s infamous Cointelpro operations and the CIA’s Project MK Ultra.
"In 2009 Frank L. Raffaele, a resident of Verona, New Jersey was targeted by gang stalkers, and he responded by distributing flyers about the harassment to neighbors and businesses. The flyers generated enough discussion and inquiries that the local police were forced to address the issue, and it became the subject of an article in the local newspaper.
"If you can afford the postage, mail your flyers.

"Send them to residences, businesses, and schools in your neighborhood as well as to local officials.
"I recommend that you send your flyers anonymously. You are not legally required by the U.S. post office to include a return address on your envelopes. You also do not need to address the envelopes to the residents by name; you can simply address them to 'Resident.'
If you do want to address flyers to your neighbors by their names, you can go to a website such as 
WhitePages to find the name(s) for each address. Just click on the 'Reverse Address' search tab.
"Be as discrete as possible when mailing the flyers. Ideally, have a friend or relative do it so it will be more difficult for the perpetrators to intercept and disrupt the mailing (for example, if they have an accomplice at the post office). It is unlikely that they would interfere with such a mailing though, as it would be a serious violation of federal law […].
If you cannot afford the postage to mail your flyers, you should distribute them by going door-to-door. You do not need to speak with residents directly; just leave your flyers where they will be seen. This tactic is completely legal by the way. If it is legal for the KKK to leave flyers on peoples cars, doorsteps, and front yards (and apparently it is), then it is legal for you to do so.
"One of the few restrictions is that you are not allowed to place flyers inside mailboxes – or even touch mailboxes."
"Distributing flyers and business cards – as discussed above – are powerful tactics for calling attention to the criminals who are stalking you. However, the exposure they create is temporary. A sign posted inside a window of your residence can be left in place for a longer period.
"Depending on the proximity of pedestrians and neighbors to your window (and the severity of the harassment), you might want to start with something small – such as one of the flyers or business cards. If needed, you can post a sign of whatever size needed for visibility.
"This can create a real problem for the criminal perps who are stalking you. Anyone whose curiosity is piqued by such signs can visit this website and learn all about the nature of the illegal harassment.
"A reader of this website who adopted this tactic sent this photograph of a banner which has been prominently displayed for the neighbors to consider.
"Another excellent way to exploit this tactic is to place a sign inside the window of your vehicle – or to order a custom bumper sticker from any of the countless websites which perform that service."
"Scrawl chalk messages about gang stalking on the sidewalk near your residence.
"Compared with paint graffiti, messages in chalk are far less likely to lead to any legal troubles. Be creative with the placement, size, colors, and wording of your messages. Be sure to include the term 'gang stalking' or 'gang stalkers.'
"If you know that the residence next-door is being used by perpetrators, you can write 'Gang Stalking Perps' on the sidewalk in front of the residence, with an arrow pointing to the residence.
"As with flyers and banners, the ideal message is '' so you can convey exactly what is happening. At least a few of your neighbors will probably visit the website to find out what is going on.
"Anyone participating in gang stalking will not want to attract attention to his crimes by making a big public issue about your sidewalk artwork. The same is true of the police […].
"If a neighbor who is not a gang stalker asks what you’re doing, just tell him or her the truth and let the chips fall where they may. You’re not the one engaged in the criminal felony of stalking."
"Order a self-inking stamp with a message suited to exposing gang stalking. I would humbly suggest that you include the name of this website in the message – since it is both a statement and an instruction for where to go for more information.
"Red ink and bold lettering would be appropriate.
"Such stamps are cheap. They are also small and light-weight, so they are easy to carry with you – for example at your job if you are being mobbed by co-workers, or at a local business if you are being harassed there.
"I’m guessing that gang stalking perps would not be pleased if the stamp mark began showing up on documents, phone books, invoices, letters, memos, booklets, restaurant menus, office football pool spreadsheets, etc.
"You can also stamp your message on adhesive notes — which can be posted almost anywhere.
"Members of Congress rarely act upon an issue simply out of a desire to stop an injustice. Instead, they mostly take actions in response to pressure. Since victims of organized stalking are a non-powerful minority of the electorate, their rights are not likely to be viewed as important even if stalking crimes are brought to the attention of legislators. Consequently, this tactic is only one element of a larger strategy.
"[S]ending letters to your representatives in Congress calling for an investigation into domestic counterintelligence crimes is a smart thing to do, and it requires very little time and effort. You should send your letter (or email) to the member of the House of Representatives who represents your congressional district, and to both of your state’s senators […].
"Consider writing your letter in the form of a question rather than an assertion. Although you are in a position to be certain of the reality of gang stalking, the person to whom you are writing does not have such first-hand experience, and cannot know whether your claims are credible. So instead of saying 'this is happening and you should look into it,' it might be more productive to ask whether the person you are writing to has any knowledge of the media reports about what appear to be domestic counterintelligence operations, and suggesting that an investigation is in order."
"Call a radio talk show which is covering an issue that is even remotely related to gang stalking (government surveillance, law enforcement, etc.), and mention that many news reports suggest that there seems to be a current version of Cointelpro going on which borrows heavily from the tactics of communist East Germany’s Stasi.
"Cite some of the news reports listed in the What is 'Gang Stalking?' page of this website. Ask the host or guest if he or she agrees that it might be a good idea for the U.S. Senate to hold another version of the Church Committee investigations – as was done in the 1970s […].
"A large audience could hear about gang stalking for the first time and that would be a great achievement. It would be a lot easier than trying to persuade some program manager to schedule a show on the subject."
"Anyone targeted by organized stalking should consider trying to exploit his or her rights under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to obtain information about what is happening […].
FOIA requests can be used to (possibly) find information about your personal situation – for example, whether you are under investigation or on a watch list. It can also (possibly) be used to find information about organized stalking generally."
