Tactics of cointelpro and gangstalking
Organizers use cutting-edge psychological technology to control Targets and the rest of society. These are just a few of the tactics used to exploit the vulnerabilites of Targets. The information I've edited below might cause a serious blow to a weak ego, so if you are feeling fragile it may be best to wait to read it. The information is extremely powerful because it is the operators manual for most gangstalkers, it synthesizes what they believe about us (TIs) or what they have been told to believe. The below information is also very interesting because Vankin himself, hosted a Yahoo group geared towards helping people rid themselves of 'undesirables' and this is some of the information that they use to CONSPIRE against an individual. More of Vankins thoughts can be found on the web or in his book. As usual the most important thing we can do is protect ourselves. Protect your health, including your mind by preparing.
Sam Vaknin info to follow: (Techniques used on Targets)
1. Frighten Them
as you read the following section note that he uses the phrase "can be made to live in contstant rage and depression" yes this also means that it may be completely inevitable that you can maintain your positivity too. They do not have control over everything, namely your reactions.
(Targets) can be Made to live in a state of constant rage/agitation, repressed aggression, and possibly envy and hatred. As a result, they are hypervigilant, suspicious, scared and erratic. A target in that state is easier to scare. Frightening the (target) is a powerful behaviour modification tool and they are easier to control. If sufficiently deterred - the 'target' promptly disengages, gives up everything he was fighting for dispears or sometimes make amends.
To act effectively, one has to identify the vulnerabilities and susceptibilities of the (TI) and strike repeated, escalating blows at them - until the (TI) lets go and vanishes.
the first stage of cointelpro is when a 'profiler' starts to test and investigate the target. Much of the investigation is conducted through spying. The profile info on a Target can be filled in from law enforcement because they keep very detailed records -for years. Avoiding all contact with a profiler is extremely important. Victims should let their loved ones know that they shouldn't share your info with anyone at all. You don't need a reason, just tell them what you want and that your personal business is not public. Let them know it is very important to you and that you'd have a hard time forgiving a breach of your trust.
This first tactic, mentioned here, against Targets, reminds me of just how important it is to keep our routines, our routines keep us centered, and keep us going forward with what the Target wants from their life, This gives us hope and also can keep us falling from into the dreaded 'victim mentality'.)
Example of how to frighten a Target:
If a (TI) is hiding a personal fact - one should use this to threaten him. One should drop cryptic hints that there are mysterious witnesses to the events and recently revealed evidence. The (TI) has a very vivid imagination. Let his imagination do the rest.
The (TI) may have been involved in tax evasion, in malpractice, in child abuse, in infidelity - there are so many possibilities, which offer a rich vein of attack. If done cleverly, non-committaly, gradually, in an escalating manner - the (TI) crumbles, disengages and disappears. He lowers his profile thoroughly in the hope of avoiding hurt and pain. Most (TI) have been known to disown and abandon a whole PNS (pathological narcissistic space) in response to a well-focused campaign by their harassers (aka gangstalkers). Thus, a (TI) may leave town, change a job, desert a field of professional interest, avoid friends and acquaintances - only to secure a cessation of the unrelenting pressure exerted on him by the gangstalkers, and other participants).
I repeat: most of the drama takes place in the hypervigilant, overly worried, mind of the (TI). His imagination runs amok. He finds himself snarled by horrifying scenarios, pursued by the vilest "certainties". The (TI) is his own worst persecutor and prosecutor. Gangstalkers believe that by dropping a threat like to yell or hit the Target, the TI will crumble. think of it that... doesn't that make you kind of laugh. A threat of violence you might get on the gangstalkers case and tenaciously ask them what they meant by that and who they were threatening. However, doesn't it make you kind of laugh imagining that they are assuming that a dumb person yelling at you will make you fall apart. OMG who hasn't gotten yelled at. I get yelled at all the time.
TIs must Stay REAL in their assesment of what has happened and stay real in our assesments of what is likely to happen. Targets must remain strong and mentally tough. The day to day annoyances and occassional brutalizations should be looked at as something you can endure, while you are getting what you want from life. It helps to also lobby elected officials to ratify the Patriot Act and bring their attention and request them to conduct audits of the Federal defense. This can give all TIs a sense of empowerment and help to rectify the situation, for others that come after us.
Gangstalkers don't have to do much except utter a vague reference, make an ominous allusion, delineate a possible turn of events. The Gangstalkers are counting on the target to ruin their own lives after they are subjected to great stress. People that are socially rejected tend to be under greator stress anyway, and this has been shown, scientifically, to lower impulse control. Targets need impulse control, so that we can have maximum control over the direction our reactions. Gangstalkers hope the TI will be like a little child in the dark, generating the very monsters that paralyse him with fear. The TI should laugh at the gangstalkers openly, especially when threatened with being yelled at or a physical assult. The victims should also feel sorry for the gangstalkers for being rude and annoying, it doesn't hurt to tell a gangstalker that you feel sorry for people that are rude.
Doing meditation, physical exercise and stress reduction can keep you sharp, positive and this will keep you under your own command. Otherwise, gangstalking might get you off course in your life, like a ship pushed to go any direction the wind blows. We need to stay on course, just a change of a few degrees of our coordinates could have drastic results over a lifetime. Stay strong, maintain your position. It's your life.
It is really important that the TI regularly restore their psychological 'executive functions', so that they can remain and strong and unmanipulated by the gangstalkers ploys. Stay healthy and exercise. Make it a research project on how to restore your mental 'executive functions.'
Most gangstalking activities are pursued legally, through the services of law enforcement in broad daylight. It is possible to sue gangstalkers though. Many Gangstalkers have been successfully sued for; conspiracy, extortion or blackmail, harassment and a host of other criminal offences. Make sure you contact a trusted lawyer early and set about getting evidence so you can prosecute. Remember to only do this if you think it would be in your best interest, fight to win.
It is easier to nail one gangstalker than the all of them, so make sure you outfit yourself with everything you need from the outset; lawyers, proper survilance equipment, etc. The gangstalkers are more afraid than you are because they are often doing illegal things to you. Ask them questions about what they are doing, don't answer any of their questions. Just ask them what they are doing.
2. Lure The Target
The other way to neutralize a (TI) is to offer him continued narcissistic supply until the war is over and won by the gangstalker. Dazzled by the drug of narcissistic supply - the (TI) immediately becomes tamed, may forget the wounds inflicted on him from the gangstalking, and triumphantly takes over his "property" and "territory". Under the influence of narcissistic supply, the (TI) is unable to tell when he is being manipulated.
Through Narcissistic supply -a TI can be 'befriended' by a profiler, even when the TI realizes that they are dealing with an agent. Profilers have special training in knowing how to control peoples behaviour. Character comes from acting on your perceptions, so if you ever realize you are being manipulated or if you suspect someone is a gangstalker, then act on your perception.
Through Narcissistic Supply the TI becomes blind, dumb and deaf to all but the song of the NS sirens. You can make a (TI) do ANYTHING by offering, withholding, or threatening...
(Narcissistic Supply is a powerful method that can be used by gangstalkers in order to 'Entrap' a Target. Entrapment is illegal, yet Gangstalkers use it on Targets all the time and get away with it. It's another reason to avoid all contact with any suspected agent.)
I edited Sam Vaknin's advice, so that Targets can better care for themselves and their families.
The Goal of these tactics is to discourage a Target from living thier life or doing what they want to do: Gangstalkers judge their 'progress' by the amount of changes to habits and values are made in the Target during the duration of their harassment. For example, if the target is part of a group, then 'progress' would be judged by a change in the targets time of getting to the meeting, regularity at the meeting etc. The more habits and values that can be changed in the Target by the Agents, the more likely it is that the Target will abandon their own goals and either hide or act inappropriatly and get a criminal history. How many changes a TI makes to their routine and life is a barometer that Agents use to see if they are 'in the head' of the TI. When the Target alters their habits and values it is a sure sign that the Agents have POWER over the Target and the target is becoming unsteady and is feeling trapped and powerless. (in the sick mind of the gangstalkers this is desireable and considered a victory)
Advice to Targets- Stay Mellow-Strength comes from maintaining position. Don't change anything, maintain your habits, values, schedules, goals as much as possible. Don't react, although you can appropriatly Respond to the specific annoyance; Respond 'assertively' or not at all. Reactivity, on the Targets part, means the gangstalkers have taken control of the situation. Maintain position.
Do exactly what your lawyer says to do. Be a legal eagle, if you are under survillance be a model citizen. Take care of yourself and your loved ones, make what you want out of life a priority untouchable. The bad cannot be allowed to overtake the good, esp take care of your health. Remember to SMILE. Let happiness and laughter be your armor.
Read and do positive things, healthfully process your emotions, so that you can live a full and inspired LIFE!
Sometimes the best way to deal with stress is acceptance that there is nothing you can do about the particular event. Doing so allows you to let go of some of the stress related to it. After all there is no sense in stressing out about something you have no control over.
Ignore their diversions and keep on doing what is in your healthies interest. They fail when you maintain your position and when you apply impulse control. When you lose control over your reactions you are under their control. Maintaining your self control and maintaining your productivity is maintaining your position.
The best revenge is living well!
Much of our stress in Targets can be mitigated. It requires a little discipline at first, then after awhile these methods can help us through while protecting our extremely important health and positivity.
1. The mind is a problem solving machine. Find ways to use thought redirection, so that you can control your 'head space'. This has great affects in maintaining a positive attitude, staying relaxed in your mind, as much as possible, makes it easier to focus and move forward with what you want from life.
2. Muscle relaxation. relaxed jaw and forehead set the tone for the rest of the body. using the body's natural 'relaxion response is helpful - use breathing techniques and visualization in order to keep your mind relaxed. If you are encoutering hypnotic suggestion in the harassment, this may be particularly useful to you. You can undo much of the rediculous counter-productive thoughts that are inserted into your mind. Meditation can help you become aware of these thoughts and alter them. Improve posture; shoulder blades together, bring down shoulders as much as possible, deeply and evenly breathe. You can stroke your arm or wiggle your butt, anything to lower your stress.
3. When assertion is mandatory. First understand that you are 100% responsible for meeting your needs and you may need to occassionally assert your opinions and feelings to these monsters. When doing so first ask them questions and non judgementally listen. When you are asserting just describe the situation sticking to only the facts of the present situation. Stay mellow- strength comes from maintaining position. No matter what they do, no matter what diversion they throw at you; even if the person attacks, threatens, or tries to change positions. Any reaction on your part means the gangstalker has taken control of the situation, so ignore diversion and keep making point.
3. Deal with annoyances. Feel sorry for the gangstalkers! What kind of person needs to harass and stalk someone? Feel sorry for rude people. Laugh at annoyances. Rethink anger provoking situations. Google impulse control and distress tolerance because there is very little good that can come when people become reactive.
4. Exercise, using all of your body. It makes you stronger, smarter and more adaptive. Some of my best planning and insights come while I am on my eliptical
5. Improve relationships. This can aid impulse control tremendously! Remember it is often the goal of gangstalkers to ruin your network of support, so you have to be smart, ego-healthy and tenacious when keeping up with the friends and family.
6. Journal: How do you feel (primary emotions)? Why do you feel this way? What is it that you really want? Why are you so upset by this? What have you gained in empathy why this person would do this or not do this? What have you gained in empathy on why you would do or feel this, or not do and feel this?
7. Prepare and plan. When you have been caught off gaurd by a gangstalker (or your own reaction) write down six times how you would like the interaction to go in the future. Memorize it, belive me once they know how to 'get ya' they'll do it again hoping for the same reaction from you. This also works to help you brainstorm ideas in case they attack you in a certain way, you will be prepared. The main thing is repition. Write it down read it over and over until you can taste, touch and feel how you will be during the interaction. In my experience, it may be best to write these plans on paper, learn them then dispose of these plans, so that gangstalkers cannot get them and use them against you.
