Great breakdown, Plutonia. Just did an offhand search for that cable, nothing came up. Jim Judd was talking about active efforts to recruit Pakistani's for "deep cover" operations, though, which is definitely going to be a data point we're citing in about 6 months.

D&D eh? How very appropriate a reference to such "role-playing". I am again reminded of the probable uses of ARGs and LARPing for such intel tactics.

On May 31, 2006 under the headline “lacking a case, CSIS disrupted suspect’s life” “The Globe and Mail” reported that CSIS has used Zerzetsen, though apparently CSIS calls it “D&D” (Diffuse and Disrupt).

Indeed a former Canadian Government “Intelligence Analyst” and whistle-blower has recently (July 2010) written to several Canadian journalists confirming that CSIS is still using “D&D” (i.e. Zerzetsen) to persecute whistle-blowers in Canada today; including himself and his wife.


I cannot find any original copies or links to The Globe and Mail article in question, but that doesn't mean it's a fake.

"Van Eck Phreaking" is how the monitor monitoring was taught to me. Funny how much nomenclature there is behind actual secrets, eh?

Sometimes CSIS would squiggle the noise lines on my computer monitor to remind me they were watching. But there is a limit to the distance they can detect the radiation, somewhere around 100 feet, which means that they will occupy a building nearby –


That's bit of tech I hadn't heard about before.

I recall that that's how the FBI read Aldrich Ames' computer while sitting in a van outside his house; a cursory search called up this:

Van Eck Monitoring. Every computer emits low levels of electromagnetic radiation from the monitor, processor, and attached devices. Although experts disagree whether the actual range is a only a few yards or up to a mile, these signals can be remotely recreated on another computer. Aided by a transmitting device to enhance the signals, the FBI reportedly used Van Eck Monitoring to extract information from spy Aldrich Ames' computer and relay it for analysis.

Some other interesting items at the link.

I also remember my roommates' Radio Shack computer activities displaying on another TV screen in the house; the old Tandy computers used a regular TV set to channel 3, and another TV nearby could pick up the images.

What's triply funny is that if you're in Ottawa and someone says DND they're usually talking about Department of National Defense. So you'll be talking with civil seravants and hear

'... DND on Friday.'
'What's happening at DND on Friday?'
'No, we're playing D&D on Friday.'
'Oh.'

That sort of thing.

Controlled / Harassed via Satellite ...

Man ‘Controlled By Satellites’ Makes 100 Calls To 911 In A Month, Vows To Continue (Video)
May 21, 2013 11:26 PM

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A man who called 911 more than 100 times in one month says he’s not going to stop until his concerns are heard by the federal government.

Jimmy Shao keeps a log book of every 911 call he’s made. So many that he boasts he’s probably set a world record.

He doesn’t believe he’s wasting the time of emergency responders because he has an emergency of his own: Shao believes he’s being watched by shadowy government authorities.

He claims to believe his body is controlled by satellites.

“My brain, I can feel it starting. I’m blasted by the signals, every couple of minutes,” he said. “I yell and I scream, ‘Stop it, I don’t need this,’ but they never listen.”

Sacramento Police say he’s ignored warnings to stop calling over and over, so they arrested him for 911 abuse.

“That this person made over 100 calls over a month’s time—60 of them came into Sac PD dispatch—that is alarming,” said officer Michele Gigante.

Every 911 call made inside Sacramento city limits is answered by the CHP. Many are then transferred to the Sacramento Police communications center. Dispatchers take time to evaluate every call, even the ones that don’t make any sense.

“We know he’s tying up resources that are desperately needed by other citizens in our community,” said Jena Swafford with the police department.

Fresh out of jail, Shao promises he isn’t done dialing 911, “until Congress starts an investigation.”

Police say if he does continue to call he will be arrested again. They also say they may look for some counseling to get him some help.

Bumping because I'm on a Stasi bender lately and this thread has seen some mention of zersetzung tactics (my emphasis added to the quotes below):

Roderick Russell wrote:The former East German secret police “the Stasi” who developed this process of “no touch” torture used to call it Zersetzung, and it is sometimes also called Zersetzen or Cointelpro. According to WikiLeaks, former CSIS Chief, Mr. Judd, calls it “vigorous harassment”. Call it what you like, it is designed to poison every aspect of the target victim’s life. It is much more than gang stalking and involves a combination of character assassination, surveillance, intimidation, harassment and death threats against oneself and family.

The Sunday Times of Oct. 10, 2004 wrote:Armoured vehicles gather outside the home of a retired police officer. His house is searched for “secret papers”, he is arrested and questioned in an anti-terrorist holding centre. Later his name appears in the papers, he is forced to move house because of death threats and he can’t find work due to an interminable police inquiry.

The Stasi, the old East German secret police, used to call such tactics “Zersetzen”, roughly translated as “to undermine, subvert and corrode”.

For those with interest in the subject, I came across the following excerpts from the Stasi "Dictionary of Political-Operative Work" (Das Wörterbuch der Staatssicherheit: Definitionen zur politisch-operativen Arbeit) in the 2002 documentary The Decomposition of the Soul (aka Zersetzung der Seele or La décomposition de l'âme).

There are a couple minutes on zersetzung starting at 1:05, and to my knowledge these are the only sections of the Stasi Dictionary which have been translated into English (and made available publicly, anyway). Pretty interesting insight, IMO, into the mindset of totalitarian enforcers.

Das Ministerium für Staatssicherheit wrote:DECOMPOSITION (Zersetzung)
Operative method by State Security to efficiently fight subversive action. With decomposition, influence is exerted on the enemy through political operative activities, mainly on negative enemy convictions, to shake him and slowly transform him. The aim of decomposition is fragmentation, paralysis, to disorganize and isolate negative enemy forces and thus allow a political-ideological recuperation. The main executing forces of decomposition are the I.M.--"inofizielle Mitarbeiter" [non-official collaborators, informants].

Decomposition measures should always start at the weakest point. By attacking the weakest point, you aim at harming the person severely, in order to trigger a chain reaction that frees new differences and contradictions and creates a basis for further decomposition measures. By "the weakest point" we mean sensitive points that are important to the person concerned, related to subversive action, in a private or social area, and that are vulnerable.

Do you know of any good writings on the activities of the former Stasi since the merger of the two Germanies?

Interesting question but no, I haven't gotten there yet.

The 2012 paper "Socialist and post-socialist functional elites in East Germany" examines something along those lines but without much attention to former Stasi in particular. FWIW, it states the following:

All in all, East German former functional elite and subelite members had good opportunities to convert their social and cultural capital. As white-collar employees on the higher professional levels they actively participated in the transformation. Most of them have not been left behind.

Higher ranking personnel from the GDR military and the State Security apparatus, especially those who boasted no adequate civil qualifications, had it comparatively worse. A former officer from the Engineer Corps of the dissolved National People’s Army might have become a free architect or got employed in a construction company, but a former Airforce pilot or a former State Security officer were very likely to eke out a living as a watchman, a doorkeeper or a janitor.

And the 2010 documentary "Kapitalism: Our Improved Formula" looks at this topic in Romania. It contends that many of that country's ultra-successful are connected to the Communist-era Securitate.

Complaints of group-stalking (‘gang-stalking’): an exploratory study of their nature and impact on complainants

Abstract
Stalking primarily concerns the actions of individuals. However, some victims report stalking by organised groups, this being known as ‘group-’ or ‘gang-stalking’. This phenomenon has not been subject to systematic study. An anonymous questionnaire was completed online by self-defined victims of stalking. One thousand and forty respondents met research definitions for stalking, of which 128 (12.3%) reported group-stalking. One hundred and twenty-eight individually stalked cases were randomly selected as a comparison group. All cases of reported group-stalking were found likely to be delusional, compared with 3.9% of individually stalked cases. There were highly significant differences between the two groups on most parameters examined. The group-stalked scored more highly on depressive symptoms, post-traumatic symptomatology and adverse impact on social and occupational functioning. Group-stalking appears to be delusional in basis, but complainants suffer marked psychological and practical sequelae. This is important in assessment of risk in stalking cases, early referral to psychiatric services and allocation of police resources.

Gaslighting America and I'm sure, the world. Everything they do not want to admit, no matter how blatantly obvious, is written off as delusional, even when you bear the scars...even when thousands, or millions bear the scars or see it for themselves.

Take Morgellons, for example. You are accused of being delusional, despite the huge lesions all over your skin that no doctor can explain or even treat, not to mention, cure. Instead, you are accused of inserting filaments into your own skin, etc. Mention Morgellons to most doctors and the public and they either look at you like as if you have two heads, or they recommend a psychiatrist, or slowly back away....
