STOP FALSE DIAGNOSES LEADING TO FORCED PSYCHIATRIC DETAINMENT TO COVER ILLEGAL HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION AND MILITARY TRAINING RESULTING IN TORTURE

STOP FALSE DIAGNOSES LEADING TO FORCED PSYCHIATRIC DETAINMENT TO COVER ILLEGAL HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION AND MILITARY TRAINING RESULTING IN TORTURE This Petition is to ask Congress to immediately implement legislation to stop the fraudulent diagnosis and detention of involuntary human research subjects as mentally ill without proper validation as set forth by individual State policies and procedure. Victims may also be used as non-consensual human research subjects of military training. In a 2013 report of the United Nations it was said that forced psychiatric treatment IS torture.  These false and forced institutionalizations based on fraudulent diagnoses are being used to isolate, silence and ruin the credibility of (as former Congressman Kucinich stated, “high-valued targets”), victims.  These diagnoses create doubt of the victim’s statements of abuses by these many technologies.   Such false and invalid diagnoses are also used to ‘cloak’ non-consensual human experimentation testing and evaluation of various technologies, and other crimes against humanity.  Former Ohio Senator John Glenn introduced the Human Research Protection Act to Congress in January 1997 (S.196).  Former Senator Glenn’s speech as reported in the Congressional Record is shown below.  Former President William Clinton issued Executive Order 12975 October 3, 1995 to regulate research on human subjects named Protection of Human Research Subjects and Creation of National Bioethics Advisory Commission.  A memorandum was issued March 27, 1997 by President Clinton strengthening the protection of use of human subjects in military “Classified” research.  Ohio Representative Dennis Kucinich introduced the Space Preservation Act in October 2001 (HR 1977), asking Congress to ban the use of military space weapons in the United States which included psychotronic weapons.  (http://www.fas.org/sgp/congress/2001/hr2977.html) Patents for military technology have been identified as the cause of many claims of psychological and emotional harassment.  Thousands of people in the United States of America are reporting to be targets of the military (during their many training missions) and targets of government research and contractors of remote neural monitoring and behavior influence technology via the use of Directed Energy Weapons and electronic harassment.  A significant percentage of these people have been forcefully admitted to mental institutions and psychiatric hospitals as a result of filing complaints of such harassment.  False diagnoses have been used to label the victim with schizophrenia and/or delusional disorders.  Depression is another diagnosis usual to this type of psychological and physical mistreatment of humans which fits the description of torture. Some of the victims have found that their mothers were also victimized by some psychological symptoms that can now be attributed to the use of this technology on them.  (Note: Few victims have reported that their fathers were ever hospitalized or treated for any type of mental illness due to this harassment which validates that 75%+ of those targeted are women.) Many sources of testing, including MRI, fMRI, CT-Scan, EEG and testing the chemistry of the blood, is available today to aid in the identification of a specific mental illness and to rule out diseases of the brain.  Yet, most of these victims will tell you that a stigmatizing diagnosis of mental illness was made after just a verbal conversation with a psychiatrist, psychologist or other medical professional.  Sometimes this would have been just a Crisis Team representative at a hospital Emergency Room or by a mental health center intake worker. Most victims of mental health misdiagnosis have been implanted without their permission which is alluded to in Senator Glenn's bill.  (https://www.congress.gov/105/bills/s193/BILLS-105s193is.pdf This implantation allows for further violation of a person’s human rights by allowing them to be persecuted by electronic means.  Psychotronic is defined as the use of electronics to affect the brain and the mind.   Thus, behavior of a targeted victim can be influenced to mimic a mental illness allowing for these false diagnoses even when the medical professional knows about the victimization of the patient. In a report by the Physicians for Human Rights, Broken Laws, Broken Lives, it is known that torture produces short-term and long-term psychological damage.  The problem comes when law enforcement, physicians and the mental health community do not want to admit that a victim is suffering the effects of torture rather than a real mental illness.   To read more about torture and its effects go to: www.prcsd.org/pdf's/BrokenLaws_14.pdf and http://thejusticecampaign.org/?page_id=273 The 2008 Special Rapporteur report names forced psychiatric interventions (such as psychosurgery, electroshock and administration of mind-altering drugs including neuroleptics) among practices that may constitute torture or ill treatment. Other medical practices that may constitute torture or ill treatment are restraint and seclusion, forced abortion or sterilization and involuntary commitment to psychiatric institutions. The medical context itself is one where “serious violations and discrimination against persons with disabilities may be masked as ‘good intentions’ on the part of health care professionals.” To read more see: http://www.narpa.org/UN-forced%20treatment%20is%20torture.htm In a report released February 1 and March 4, 2013, this same organisation reports that forced involuntary confinement in a psychiatric facility IS torture. This statement was made by Mr. Juan E. Mendez in a Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment to the 22nd session of the Human Rights Council, March 4, 2013 in Geneva. The entire report, in PDF, can be downloaded at www.ohchr.org/Documents/Issues/SRTorture/StatementHRC16... In 1994 Former Army Intelligence Officer Julianne McKinney wrote Senator Glenn about the use of this technology on unwitting citizens in these States of America.  In 2005, Lynn Surgalla, Past Vice-President of the United States Psychotronic Association wrote a letter to the court on behalf of these citizens assuring the court that these weapons a.k.a. Psychotronic Weapons, are being used by criminal elements in our own government as weapons for “Slow Kill” torture-interrogation by war criminals worldwide.” Ms. McKinney, Director of Electronic Surveillance Project Association of National Security Alumni wrote an article entitled Microwave Harassment and Mind-Control Experimentation (December 1992).  One paragraph of this report reads, “A matter of interest to us is why WRAIR (author’s note-Walter Reed Army Institute of Research) should be experimenting with auditory effects of pulsed microwave audiograms. Also, recent statements by an Army psychiatrist assigned to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) suggest that WRAIR may be experimenting upon select psychiatric inpatients with microwaves. This, too, is a matter to us.”  Further down in this report Ms. McKinney states, “That psychiatric facility is in a State where a disproportionate number of complaints of electronic harassment are beginning to surface. It is also within range of a U.S. Air Force base which houses a "super secret" research facility. We are currently looking into information that spouses and children of persons employed on that USAF base may be the targets of involuntary experimentation involving direct-energy weapons technologies.”   20 years after Ms. McKinney’s report and almost that long since she began to voice concerns to Congress and the President, even more complaints are being documented by physicians, in hospital emergency rooms, mental institutions and psychiatric hospitals as cases of mental illness. These diagnoses are being made without the proper test to rule out the validity of the complaint. The author of this petition had a personal conversation with a Captain employee at Walter Reed Army Hospital who made the statement to me, “he does not have to be near you to do this to you.”  This statement was made in reference to the use of this at-a-distance technology.  A retired Navy Communications Engineer also validates the use of microwave voice-to-skull (auditory effects) as does the Army Intelligence and Security Division of Fort George Meade, MD in unclassified documents.  The very existence of this technology that can be used to make a person seem to be hallucinating or delusional makes room for such misdiagnosis and stereotyping. These people are innocent, unwitting victims of government experimentation or vicious use of psychotronic technology by military, government contractors, or other international criminals. Join me in petitioning Congress to launch an investigation and issue legislative instructions for the Department of Health and Human Services, American Psychiatric Association, American Medical Association and all affiliates to not be allowed to make mental illness diagnosis or hold a person in a mental health facility without the appropriate testing to properly diagnose such an illness.  Also, those in the medical or mental health professional who knowingly make false diagnosis to get a court to involuntarily commit a victim of non-consensual human experimentation should also be addressed and laws instituted to allow for the charges to be made against that healthcare professional and organization. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD January 22, 1997  (Page S645) Human Research Subject Protection Act Mr. GLENN. Madam President, I rise today to introduce the Human Research Subject Protection Act of 1997. I send the bill to the desk. Mr. GLENN. Madam President, if I approached any Senator here and I said, 'You did not know it, but the last time they went to the doctor or went to the hospital, your wife or your husband or your daughter or your son became the subject of a medical experiment that they were not even told about. They were given medicine, they were given pills, they were given radiation, they were given something and were not even told about this, were not even informed about it, yet they are under some experimental research that might possibly do them harm - maybe some good will come out of it, but maybe it will do them harm also - but they do not know about it,' people would laugh at that and say that is ridiculous. That cannot possibly happen in this country. Yet, that very situation is what this piece of legislation is supposed to address. .................................................. These tragic incidents I have mentioned have resulted in changes in the way human research subjects are treated. I don't want to misrepresent this, because there is a very elaborate system of protections that have developed over the years. Unfortunately, though, this system does have some gaps and, if enacted, I believe this legislation will close those gaps. ...[end excerpt] for the entire bill go to: http://www.icomw.org/documents/glenn.pdf   ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Lynn A. Surgalla, Former Vice-President United States Psychotronics Association P.O. Box 2 Monmouth Beach, NJ 07750 6/20/05  To the Court:  As Former Vice-President of the United States Psychotronics Association, I assure the Court that the illegal testing, development and use of Psychotronic, Microwave, Laser and other forms of Electromagnetic Directed Energy Weaponry is a matter of grace concern to both the US and International Communities. These weapons are ALL potentially LETHAL, although sublethal injuries may also be inflicted as with the use of any other lethal weapon such as gun, knife or chemical poison.  Assault and Battery and/or torture/murder with any form of Directed Energy Weapon IS Assault and Battery and/or torture/murder with a LETHAL WEAPON.  Despite claims to the contrary by criminal elements in our own government, there is NO SUCH THING as a NONLETHAL WEAPON (even those currently in vogue for “Slow Kill” torture-interrogation by war criminals worldwide).  In 2001, HR2977, The Space Preservation Act (2001) was introduced into Congress to BAN ALL Directed Energy Weapons.  Its passage has thusfar been blocked.  In 2002, the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) formally listed a NEW CATEGORY of WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION (Psychotronic Mind Control and other Electromagnetic Resonance Weapons) in their 2002 Media Guide to Disarmament.  In 2003, the State of Michigan passed into Law House Bills 4513 and 4514 BANNING the use of ALL FORMS of ELECTROMAGNETIC WEAPONS against Human Beings in the State of Michigan.  In 1999, the European Union Parliament passed Resolution A4-005/1999 Section 27 which “Calls for an International Convention introducing a GLOBAL BAN on all developments and deployments of weapons which might enable any forms of manipulation of Human Beings.” (PSYCHOTRONIC WEAPONS)  Ms. Millicent Black’s claim of being assaulted with some form of DIRECTED ENERGY WEAPON is to be taken very seriously.  If the criminal assailants are found to be law enforcement personnel or government employees, then the crime is an EVEN MORE SERIOUS OFFENSE with grave political implications.  If the crime is found to be racially or religiously-motivated torture-assault, then the bias-crime laws also apply.  I assure you that similar cases of assault-torture-murder with these weapons are being addressed all over the world.  Please give this matter your closest attention.  The INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS COMMUNITY is deeply interested in the outcome and concerned that justice be served in all cases of Directed Energy Weapons assault.  Attached to this letter is a copy of my resume and relevant pages from HR2977 which lists the forms of Electromagnetic Directed Energy Weaponry currently in use.  Sincerely,  (signature on file) Lynn A.

Petition to Martha Minnis

40 years for marijuana is not justice

Grant a Reduction of Sentence to My Son Edwin Walter Rubis, 40 years for marijuana is not justice.My son, Edwin Walter Rubis, is serving a federal sentence of 40 years for a non-violent marijuana offense. [www.marijuanaliferproject.org/federal-prisoner-edwin-rubis-is-serving-life-for-marijuana/ At age 29, Edwin was slapped with this offense while battling drug addiction. At the time of his arrest, we discovered that authorities were seeking information on others involved in the drug trade that Edwin did not have. Edwin's court appointed attorney advised us that, without cooperation, no plea agreement to plead guilty would be in effect. Based on counsel's advisement, Edwin proceeded to trial, and received a sentence of 40 years for not cooperating. He has served 18 years on this offense. Even if he had been fairly represented through a paid competent attorney, and his trial had not weighed against him, 18 years is sufficient for this non-violent crime. Please sign our petition asking Honorable Judge David Hittner [Southern District of Texas], in tandem with Assistant United States Attorney James L. Turner [Southern District of Texas], to grant our son Edwin a reduction of sentence, so he may have a second chance at life. While serving this federal sentence, Edwin has taken numerous rehabilitation programs to better himself. He has certificates of completion from the psychology and religious departments. He is currently enrolled in Christian Bible College and Seminary pursuing a Master's degree in Christian Counseling and Therapist Certification. He completed a 2 year apprenticeship to be a dental assistant, and is currently working in the medical department at his present institution. Edwin is active in his personal studies, and is seen as a mentor by others for both spiritual and personal character. Upon his immediate release, Edwin has, at the minimum, three job offers available from the community. Sadly, all our possible legal options have been exhausted, including clemency from the President. I am pleading for my son to receive a sentence reduction so that he can continue his rehabilitation efforts by helping young men deal with situations he faced during his younger years in the streets. Please sign this petition urging Honorable Judge David Hittner, in tandem with Assistant United States Attorney James L. Turner, to grant him a sentence reduction, based on the case of Holloway v. United States, 2014 U.S. Dist. Lexis 102707 (E.D. NY 2014). Edwin has been rehabilitated and deserves a second chance. Sincerely, Maria Roque and Family. God bless You.

In solitary confinement for over a year, a family Shepherd is denied his last days at home

                                      STOP THE CRUELTY:   A Senior German Shepherd, in failing health, held in solitary   confinement for over 530 days by Multnomah County Animal   Control, Troutdale Oregon, has been prohibited from spending   his last days at home.  The pictures of Chucky with his family are from happier times.   Chucky, an old German Shepherd, has been held in solitary confinement since his impoundment on February 28, 2016 by Multnomah County Animal Services, Oregon. For over 530 days he has been denied critical socialization and exercise, allowed only rare restricted family visits by appointment for a maximum 15 minutes. Animal Control sees visitations as disruptive and justifies limited visitations, often allowed only through the kennel door, as “upsetting” to the animal. On July 5, 2017 of his long confinement, a medical report noted troubling significant health concerns: a suspicious mass that could be neoplasia, infection or another serious problem. In response MCAS has withheld diagnostic medical procedures critically needed to determine what is wrong.  Despite the gravity of his condition, Animal Control won’t release him to go home to his family as his mental and physical health decline. How did Chucky arrive at this crossroads?    Chucky and his companion Shepherd named Katrina were picked up after escaping a county approved kennel required after previous at-large episodes. Despite its approval by the county,  the kennel proved to be inadequate.  Both dogs escaped.  Chucky was charged with killing a small poodle while at large.  Although Chucky is a very personal and loving  dog with Katrina, his companion Shepherd, his family and others, he can be dog aggressive.   Multnomah County’s rejection of humane solutions is inexcusable, part of an attitude of forced compulsion, a requirement for “submission and “obedience” at all costs. Without sacrificing public safety and at no expense to taxpayers, funding for a secure kennel would have sufficed allowing Chucky to go home to his family instead of suffer. Instead the county’s refusal has now cost taxpayers nearly $8,000.  Animal Control’s intransigent position is symptomatic of government sponsored animal cruelty. And while the cost continues to escalate daily, a secure kennel remains as a practical and humane solution. Chucky comes from an impoverished Hispanic family. Although they are poor, they did their best to respect Multnomah County Animal Control’s ordinances. They should not be punished for their poverty In allowing the family to regain custody of the dog they love, MCAS would affirm its “Equity and Empowerment Lens” mandated by the county itself. But it still refuses. Once MCAS rejected all humane options, Chucky’s conviction was appealed by the family with the help of a pro bono attorney. The case remains pending before the Oregon Court of Appeals.  The appeal is viewed as an affront to the county’s authority.  The County’s attorney, MCAS advisor David Blankfeld, and MCAS director Jackie Rose have labeled the appeal frivolous and unnecessary and continue to pressure the family to give up. The appeals are all that have kept Chucky alive. But without the appeal, Chucky would certainly have been killed.  The County has taken a stand neither providing Chucky necessary diagnostic procedures nor allowing him to return to his family for needed medical treatment. Multnomah County Animal Control’s predatory behavior towards vulnerable persons is long standing. MCAS targets the most vulnerable and underserved populations in Multnomah County.   Few can afford to defend themselves and their animals against a system intended to thwart due process, justice and fair play. The poor, minorities, and in particular the homeless are fair game in a system that is rigged against them.. While Chucky’s appeal remains pending he is being held under conditions that no prison system would tolerate for even the most hardened criminals.  The County’s own notes make those conditions clear, the same observations repeated over and over and over again make his deterioration clear: “Chucky’s kennel was filthy this morning, He is spreading feces and urine all over his inside and outside areas. This includes walls, bedding, and chain link…”  Multnomah County is sending a clear message---  do not exercise your rights. Disagree and punishment will be swift. If one does appeal, animals  will be kept confined month after month  with no relief for their misery and loneliness as the County declines all effective alternatives. Chucky is not alone. Dogs like Chucky live out their lives isolated, alone, in miserable circumstances, housed in “security kennels”. The offenses are almost always correctable, almost always related to poverty. The animals suffer, become ill and injured from the effects of confinement. By refusing the diagnostic tests needed for treatment and not allowing Chucky to go home for treatment or, most likely, a few weeks of comfort, it plans to run the clock out on his life.   If we cannot prevail, Chucky will languish until his death. Ask the Multnomah County Commission to release Chucky back to his family home for the remaining days of his life. Protest the continuing abusive enforcement animal policies practiced in Multnomah County.   Without your voice, change will not happen. Nothing will change.  Gail O’Connell-Babcock, PhD   Citizens for Humane Animal Legislation/Watchdog Sherwood OR 97140

Petition to Rahm Emanuel, Chicago City Council, Edward M. Burke, Gilbert Villegas, Michele Smith

Rename Balbo Drive after the Patroness of Immigrants: Chicago needs Saint Cabrini Drive!

On Aug. 17, 2017, Chicago Sun-Times columnist Michael Sneed reported that Alderman Ed Burke and Alderman Gilbert Villegas are looking to rename Balbo Drive. The reason? Balbo is a known fascist who helped bring Benito Mussolini to power. While the Italian government took down all symbols of fascism after World War II and asked other countries to do the same, Chicago still pays tribute to Balbo with the street bearing his name. It's time for that to change. Chicago has the opportunity to not only rename this street to right a wrong, but to rename the street in honor of someone who has inspired hope in the city and around the world for over 100 years - Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini. St. Cabrini was an Italian immigrant who lived, worked, and died in Chicago. Before her death at age 67, she founded 67 institutions of care around the world including three in Chicago - Columbus Hospital, Columbus Extension Hospital (later named Cabrini Hospital), and Assumption School. The National Shrine of Saint Frances Xavier Cabrini stands in Lakeview (where Columbus Hospital once stood) as a sacred space and living legacy to this extraordinary woman who made a tremendous contribution in providing education, healthcare and social welfare to the people who walked our city's streets. She walked along with them. She dedicated her life to serving the poor and new immigrants to the United States. When she was canonized in 1946 she became the first American Citizen Saint and over 100,000 people gathered in Chicago's Soldier Field to honor her. 2017 marks 100 years since her death. What better way and what better time to proclaim Chicago's status as a sanctuary city and show its support for today's immigrants than by renaming the street after the Patroness of Immigrants?
