“The people who are at peace with you will deceive you. Those who eat food with you will set traps for you, and you won’t even know about it.” —Obadiah 7, God’s Word Translation
A key component of the ongoing psychological attack (directed energy weapons torture & organized stalking) that I have endured for over ten years are a stream of covert government-sponsored operatives masquerading as friends. Like wolves in sheep’s clothing, these individuals insinuate themselves into my life with malicious objectives. It is this aspect of the psychological attacks I undergo that demands the greatest degree of sober vigilance and insight.
These individuals have four major objectives: They provide interference so that genuine friendships of the targeted individual are either lost or exploited, contributing to isolation and loss of support. Secondly, they gather information, looking for weaknesses to exploit. Thirdly, they hinder the victim’s ability to obtain legal recourse for the abuses he has suffered. Above all, they are hidden persuaders, using coercive techniques to gain control of their victims.
It is in my workplace, and place of worship that a concentration of these individuals appeared. It appears that covert agencies in our country use a strategy similar to the Stasi (former secret police organization) in East Germany; recruiting and training operatives who then make a career of infiltrating organizations and businesses. Their true role will generally only become apparent to the individuals they target. This is the case with the covert personnel I have encountered.
There are five key traits I have observed in covert operatives who have sought to gain my confidence:
1. The “friendships” start at an unusually rapid pace.
I’ve noticed that these covert “friendships” tend to build quickly, far more rapidly than genuine friendships. The jump from total stranger to close friend is carefully orchestrated by the covert operative so that they can get up to speed with minimal delay. The covert operative may also highly praise other individuals that are coworkers in their scheme, hoping that you befriend and trust them as well.
If the first covert operative’s “friendship” effort fails, a “backup” will step in and seek to gain your confidence. Of course, he will have studied the reasons why the first effort failed, using the lessons learned to gain your confidence. All of the individuals used for these roles are carefully selected for characteristics deemed attractive to the target.
2. They seem to share and know all of your interests.
It is rare to have genuine friends that like everything that you do. Even marriage mates differ in tastes and interests. However, the covert operatives seeking to quickly gain your confidence have done their homework. They know your interests primarily due to information collected through surveillance. Their understanding of your interests may be wide but shallow and seems a bit forced and unnatural. It all feels rather intrusive, as if someone watched you and made a list of your daily activities. In truth, that is exactly what has happened!
3. They will try to crowd out and replace your long-held and trusted friendships.
That is perhaps the most obvious and consistent trait of all the covert operatives I have come in contact with. They slyly steer you away from trusted long-held friendships. They find ways to divert your attention and time. They may invent schemes that give them the opportunity to come to your aid in some way, thereby gaining your confidence and admiration. Their intent is to isolate you so that eventually they and fellow covert operatives are the only “friends” you have.
These individuals are trained to destroy the good name of the persons they target. They will use their role as your “closest friend” to raise doubts about you to others. Eventually, you will be maneuvered into a situation that leads to a loss of reputation, employment or other personal crisis. As a result, they must be treated with extreme caution.
4. They actively hinder the victim’s ability to obtain legal recourse or protection under the rule of law.
In this, we see similarities to an earlier program of government-sponsored abuses. During the Tuskegee Experiment, the U.S. Public Health Service conducted a 40-year study on 399 black men in the late stages of syphilis. These men were willfully and deceitfully denied treatment so that upon their eventual death from the disease, their corpses could be used for medical research. To keep the unwitting participants from getting proper treatment or information about their condition, an elaborate scheme of lies and manipulation was set in place that demanded the coordination of both Federal and local health and education agencies. A black nurse who gained the trust of these men was used to play a key role in deceiving them during this 40-year pattern of injustice.
It appears that modern programs of involuntary testing done with directed energy weapons and psychological attacks use a similar strategy to ensure that its victims never have access to any meaningful lawful protection from the abuses they suffer. The covert personnel masquerading as friends plays an essential ongoing role in this drama. They are the frontline of lies and manipulation intended to weaken and confuse any efforts by their victim to obtain legal protections under the law.
5. They exert a toxic, negative, and potentially destructive influence.
There is both an emotional and physical toll that comes from having a friendship with a person that is plotting against you. The Bible writer King David describes the effects of being betrayed by a close friend at Psalm 55:12-2-14, 17:
“For it is not an enemy who taunts me;
Otherwise I could put up with it.
It is not a foe who has risen up against me;
Otherwise I could conceal myself from him.
But it is you, a man like me,
My own companion whom I know well.
We used to enjoy a warm friendship together;
Into the house of God we used to walk along with the multitude…
Evening and morning and noontime, I am troubled and I groan…”
Your newly acquired covert “false friends” have cultivated a relationship with the intent of betrayal. They want to exploit your vulnerability by cleverly using anxiety, inordinate guilt, taunts and doubts to destroy your self-esteem. As you become more isolated from true friends, the dominant influence in your life becomes these crafty, deceitful persuaders. They are well trained for the task and employ psychological violence capable of serious mental and physical harm. In a very real sense, you are under attack. Their devious methods are perfectly captured in the way the Bible writer King David described his betrayer:
“His words are smoother than butter, But conflict is in his heart. His words are softer than oil, But they are drawn swords.” -Psalm 55:21
A person who is discouraged, depressed and robbed of self-esteem becomes easier to manipulate and control. Your thinking and emotions, now weakened by feelings of worthlessness and self-doubt, are the bounty sought by your covert false friends.
It can be an enormous challenge discerning the difference between genuine friends and covert operatives seeking to gain your confidence. In fact, in some cases, it is only after these covert individuals have done their damage that I discovered their true motive. After eleven years of psychological attacks and covert victimization (as of 2009), it is easier now to detect them early in their attack. I am better at spotting the signals. However, a hard-earned mental and emotional balance must be maintained. It is quite easy to misjudge the motives of well-meaning individuals.
These covert individuals are highly trained, organized, and appear to be employed or sub-contracted by government agencies in some way. I have noted that quite a number of these covert role-players appear to have military career backgrounds (they like to boast about that).
Keeping false friends at a distance is not always easy as they will persistently seek to infiltrate all areas of your life. At the very least, it may be possible to severely limit contact with some of these interlopers. Others can be neutralized simply by the fact that you are aware of what they are and exercise caution in their presence.
One powerful lesson I’ve learned is the need to choose friends wisely. Choosing close friends should not be based on happenstance events. Especially when surrounded by individuals who are deceitful by profession. I have adopted a policy of having a friendly disposition toward people in general, yet, being shrewd, discerning and selective when choosing friends. A chance encounter with someone who seems to share something in common is not a valid basis for a friendship.
“Anyone slandering his companion in secrecy, Him I silence.” – Psalm 101:5
I admire the example set by King David, the writer of Psalm 101:5, who refused to keep company with anyone known for covert slander. He “silenced” such ones by refusing to listen to them.
A critical insight worthy of consideration
The psychological and physical dangers presented by these programs do not come from any one person. The various role-players in these abuses operate on the classic principle of compartmentalization used by all covert agencies who operate in secrecy.
For example, persons engaging in harassment on the street (commonly called street theater) may be unaware of the attacks their victim may experience at night when he tries to sleep, or the range of weapons involved. They only know what they need to know to play their specific role. However, it is the collective pattern of abuses that presents the greatest danger to the victim. Limiting the full details of these programs to a select few protects its secrecy. Most of the persons who play roles in these programs are not aware of everything that is being done to the targeted person.
Some of the participants may be thoroughly deceived, thinking that there is a legitimate basis for supporting a pattern of harassment. This has tempered my view of the situation. How?
The Bible has shaped my thinking in this regard:
When Jesus Christ walked the earth, he rightfully condemned the religious leaders of his day (the Scribes and Pharisees) because of their systemic corruption and hypocrisy. “Woe to You, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! Because You shut up the kingdom of the heavens before men; for You yourselves do not go in, neither do You permit those on their way in to go in…” -Matthew 23:13
As a group, the Pharisees opposed Jesus and were responsible for his death. However, Jesus did not assume that every individual Pharisee was beyond help, fitting a stereotype as it were. He treated them as individuals.
When a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to a meal at his home to learn more about him, Jesus accepted the invitation. (Luke 7: 36-50) When a prominent Pharisee named Nicodemus secretly visited to learn more about his teachings (he was fearful of what his fellow Pharisees might think if he met openly with Jesus), he was warmly welcomed and instructed by the Christ. (John 3:1-9)
Jesus looked for the good in every person. He knew that the Pharisees were plotting to kill him. (John 11:46, 47, 53) Yet, he did not judge them all through an inflexible prism of prejudice but as individuals. Inspired by his example, I try to do the same. Although others actively seek to dehumanize me, I must resist the tendency to adopt that crippling flaw in my own thinking. Focusing on the positive qualities I see in others brightens my days.
Why Is This Happening?
The fact that seemingly endless resources are being invested in ways to covertly track, torture, and ruin the lives of persons who are not a threat to any institution cannot be explained as merely an isolated secular phenomenon. Once cherished concepts of justice and human rights are dying on an international scale. Human society has a growing, insatiable appetite for violence in all forms, including psychological cruelty. We are entertained by it, pepper our speech with it, and attempt to solve most of our problems with it. It brings to my mind a scripture that provides the only explanation that makes any sense:
“But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. Men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power.” —2 Timothy 3:1-5
I encourage you to read the words of David at Psalm 55 in your Bible. It is a great source of comfort. You will also discover that the trials we undergo are nothing new. You can endure!
