The psychopath befriends the victim by attention showering; inquiring into their lives, sniffing out insecurities, compliment and mirror as much they can the same qualities. The goal is for the victim to identify the psycho’s presence with safety and familiarity.

At this stage notice their hyper-observant nature; they seem too curious from all angles, precisely on what makes you and what breaks you. They narrate dramatic instances, lies which purpose is to make them appear honest and humane, you feel the urge to open up in return; let out all your emotional baggage—you took the bait.

Example: they will say they’ve been through similar traumas, had done the same mistakes or good deeds. You felt guilty at one point towards certain behaviors, you fell for some trap due to your regrettable “naiveté”, guess what? So do they. Your stories somehow seem identical, at least in regard to the emotions both of you experienced. You think to yourself “wow, this fellow understands me on a very deep level.”

Excerpt from letter to senior DOD official, 21 May 2019, as revised 23 May 2019:

. . [T]here’s nothing funny about planning, staffing, initiating and running a national security psychological warfare operation on a non-combatant American citizen, on U.S. soil.

Christine [] is not, has not been, and never will be disloyal to our country. Rather, Sir, it is those who’ve targeted [her] for destruction who’ve for decades actively undermined the laws of this land and those who are trained and tasked with providing the security for this nation.

Unfortunately, Xxxxxx, the only likely reason that Ms. [] life is now being systematically destroyed with the tools of war is because the same people I just identified are my enemies on several public policy issues, and they’ve been bullet-proof long enough to disrespect the law even more than they did before. [And they know well that I have grown to love Christine profoundly during the 7 years of our friendship. This gives them an especially potent way to send me a message.]

Psychological operations play an especially important part of our nation’s efforts to pursue and protect American interests and those of our allies. Even from what little I’ve learned as I’ve tried to understand what’s been done to Christine and find some way to help her, i can say that our nation’s psychological warfare capacity scares the hell out of me. And that’s what weapons of war should do. 

Christine’s a patriotic, loyal American citizen from a family that brought her up right. And from all I’ve been able to learn, the psychological warfare operation – if that’s what it is – that’s got hold of her has violated state and federal law as well as DOD policy, from the very start.  But as horrific a set of crimes against an innocent victim this appears to be, that doesn’t change the need for America’s warriors to do their jobs as effectively and safely as possible. 

That’s why, except for a brief quote here or there, such as with this post, I’m not sharing chapters from field manuals or any other openly available official publications or documents that divulge how our psychological warriors are trained or how they do their jobs. Instead, here’s a 16-minute video that’s not specific to our national security community’s work but which provides a quick overview of the steps a manipulator frequently takes to capture their victim.  A few excerpts from the YouTube transcript of this video, are also included.

Here’s some of the applied research that I’ve been trying to do for our wounded warriors and their families. And here are some emails from 12 – 14 months of failed attempts to make peace with these guys so that I can secure funding and get back to work.

 

 

 

 

 

Overview of combatresearchandprose, a planned open-source applied research initiative 

CRP principal researcher is Charles L. K. Bloeser, M.A., J.D., a researcher whose published and still cited works begin in 1992. He’s licensed to practice law by the Supreme Court of Tennessee, U.S.A. After first serving as an assistant district attorney in the State of Oklahoma, his career in the courts has been spent in criminal trial, appeal, and post-conviction cases in state and federal trial and appellate courts, including certiorari practice before the Supreme Court of the United States.

Support staff isn’t needed at this stage, and it’s anticipated that collaborations with other researchers can be secured on a volunteer or independent contractor basis. Combat research and prose will not engage in the provision of direct services.

Contact info: lawyerckbloeser.usa@outlook.com

Mobile: 520.306.6888 (USA)

This research initiative seeks funding to support the applied research and writing activities described below. More details follow this description of combatresearchandprose.com. 

Charles.photo.lawlibrary. 150 x 200Recent publications, current projects and future applied research activities:

“Combat Translation Project”

“Combat Translation Project”: ongoing multi-product “research +” activity in support of bridging – among members of relevant policy crowds – an existing chasm in experience, knowledge, and understanding which divides the 93% of persons who’ve never served in the Armed Forces from the seven percent who have (U.S. data).

Objective: provide to members of the national security/defense /veterans policy crowds top-shelf research products that assist their efforts to make informed and intelligent decisions on matters that affect those who’ve served in the United States military as well as in the military services of U.S. allies, and these service members’ families.

Here are three examples of “combat translation” products:

strife-henry-part-1-charles-bloeser-article-on-strifeblog-2-august-2018-419 x 213STRIFE, a dual-format publication from the Department of War Studies, Kings College London, published in August 2018 the account of a now-deceased client, a combat-wounded veteran who fell between the cracks of a modern jail after his latest arrest for PTS-related domestic violence. http://www.strifeblog.org/2018/08/02/henry-a-wounded-soldier-forgotten-by-all-in-an-american-jail-by-all-except-his-brothers-who-fell-beside-him-in-vietnam

joshua-wheeler-return-home-325 x 225The second example of this researcher’s combat-translation work examines why the United States and her allies need special operations forces. It does so through the life and service of fallen “Delta Force” special operator Josh Wheeler, a Cherokee Indian from Sequoyah County, Oklahoma, who enlisted in the U.S. Army one month after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Two hours west of where U.S. Army Master Sergeant Joshua L. Wheeler was born and raised. https://combatresearchandprose.com/2018/07/07/in-2018-we-still-need-our-warriors/

Cure for PTSD image and excerpt. 350 x 205The third example of “combat translation” work comes from an article in progress. The research product introduces civilians to today’s combat-related wounds through an autopsy of trauma experienced by Allied airmen flying bombing runs over occupied Europe during World War II.  https://combatresearchandprose.com/2018/08/24/a-cure-for-ptsd-swift-efficient-soul-stealing/

father with haunted eyes clutching family image 425 x 287Foster kids / military family applied research project:

2 components – new research article and proposed model legislative language 

Child welfare services across the United States remove children from their homes after state authorities conclude that one or more children is in immediate danger of harm. “Harm” is generally defined as abuse or neglect. A recent report from the National Conference of State Legislatures reports that “just over 415,000 children and youth in the U.S. currently reside in foster care.”

Child welfare workers are not generally required to place children from military families with military foster families.

While, generally speaking, child welfare agencies prefer to place children with suitable family members nearby, that’s seldom possible when children are removed from military families stationed far from home.

Researcher has just completed a substantive new research product that examines challenges and successes of foster kids who enter military service, as well as the threats to keeping military families together, especially during and after deployments.

Pursuant to recent discussions with legislative experts who’ve repeatedly demonstrated success in getting the states to adopt proposed model legislation, researcher is now drafting for their consideration proposed state and federal legislative language intended to keep military children clothed, fed, sheltered, and safe while increasing the likelihood that state child welfare authorities and the courts will reunite military children with their past and present service member parents.

Researcher’s role as a participant in America’s “foster-child system”

The author’s responsibilities in criminal and civil matters while serving as an assistant district attorney for the State of Oklahoma were, among others:

(a) reviewing child welfare reports to determine which warranted applications for judicial child removal orders and possible criminal prosecution;

(b) representing the State’s interests in civil “deprived child” actions arising from these cases, as well as in civil cases alleging actions by minors that, if done by an adult, would be criminal offenses and subject to prosecution;

(c) learning whether a crime committed against or by a child occurred on land and under circumstances that authorized the State of Oklahoma to act (the judicial district I served is a patchwork of jurisdictions that include a number of Indian tribes and in which the land that the State couldn’t touch might be no bigger than the lot where the crimes occurred);

(d) primary assistant D.A. on call to respond to ER, courthouse, or other locations in order to seek, if necessary, order from the judge authorizing the emergency commitment of persons deemed danger to self or others, an order which, in the absence of suitable family, resulted in kids going into foster care;

(e) took turns with other assistant D.A.’s on call to respond to scenes of suicide and other deaths when requested by law enforcement;

(f) on occasion, participating in case conferencing with other relevant actors re children placed in the custody of child services and perhaps housed in foster homes; and

(g) serving as the District Attorney’s representative at some of the informal foster parent gatherings held in that judicial district.

Mr. Richardson and attorney Charles Bloeser State of Tennessee carjacking and murder trial. 375 x 210Regardless of which side I’ve represented over the years, America’s foster system has always insisted on showing up, either openly or by lurking in the shadows in cases involving:

(a) criminal defendants, appellants, and petitioners who had been removed from their homes as children due to abuse, neglect or a parent’s inability to keep them housed, fed, and in school;

(b) clients whose children had been removed for any or all of the same reasons and who had not been reunited with their kids;

(c) persons arrested, charged and sometimes previously convicted for committing crimes against children, including sex crimes, assault, criminal neglect, and homicide; and

(d) persons who insisted on pleading guilty to crimes they didn’t commit or which the State couldn’t have proven at trial, under threat that child services would be sent into the home to remove their children if they did not plead guilty.

19 November 2018 “Bad Paper” UPDATE:

Lorelei Laird. “Veterans may sue over discharges they say were result of untreated mental health problems.” ABA Journal. 19 November 2018.

http://www.abajournal.com/news/article/veterans_may_sue_over_discharges_they_say_were_result_of_untreated_mental_h

The court’s description of the class who may sue the VA, taken from page 21 of the court’s order, is as follows:

Veterans who served during the Iraq and Afghanistan Era—defined as the period between October 7, 2001, and the present—who:

(a) were discharged from the Navy, Navy Reserves, Marine Corps, or Marine Corps Reserve with less-than-Honorable statuses, including General and Other-than-Honorable discharges but excluding Bad Conduct or Dishonorable discharges;

(b) have not received upgrades of their discharge statuses to Honorable from the NDRB; and

(c) have diagnoses of PTSD, TBI, or other related mental health conditions, or records documenting one or more symptoms of PTSD, TBI, or other related mental health conditions at the time of discharge, attributable to their military service under the Hagel Memo standards of liberal or special consideration.

The Yale Law School’s Veterans Legal Services Clinic and Jenner & Block LLP are the lawyers on this case, and they have filed similar litigation in the hopes of securing this same opportunity for veterans of other branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Here are the links to the complaint that started this lawsuit and the judicial order that allows these veterans to sue the VA as a class:

“Bad Paper” discharges and collateral consequences of criminal convictions are two of the snake pits that can prove lethal to military families’ chances of getting their kids back from state child welfare authorities. Here’s some of that discussion, excerpted from the new article manuscript.

Denial of veterans’ services*

“Although by law, Congress denies veterans’ services only to those “discharged under dishonorable conditions,” the VA has interpreted the intent of the law as excluding anyone with Dishonorable discharges as well as all veterans with Bad Conduct or OTH discharges, regardless of whether or not these latter discharges were related to any action understood as ‘dishonorable.’”

Ali R. Tayyeb and Jennifer Greenburg. “Bad Papers”: The Invisible and Increasing Costs of War for Excluded Veterans 6. Watson Institute of International and Public Affairs, Brown University. 20 June 2017 (citations omitted).

media image to accompany Yochi Dreazen book excerpt re suicides among past and present service members and impact on families. 564 x 250“Exclusion from basic veteran services is not only unfair, it is also deadly. Denying basic services means no health care for former servicemembers who are disabled, and no income support if disabilities prevent the servicemember from working. For veterans struggling with mental health problems, this abandonment is life-threatening. The suicide rate for veterans excluded from VA health care is twice the suicide rate for VA-recognized veterans.”

Swords to Plowshares a Veterans Rights Organization with assistance of Veterans Legal Clinic, Harvard Law School. Getting It Right: “Bad Paper” Legislation That Works. Prepared for March 29, 2017 House Veteran Affairs Committee, Subcommittee on Health Legislative Hearing on H.R 918 and others.

[*The article manuscript notes that spending legislation signed by President Trump in February of 2018 includes a number of intended improvements for those who’ve served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including for some of those with “bad paper.” Links to CRS guides to these new laws are included in the article mss.]

You didn’t have to go to prison? Cool. Time to lose government benefits, such as VA pension, medical care, TANF and SNAP; and no, you may not work in construction or as a cab driver, midwife, or barber.

John G. Malcolm, Vice President, Institute for Constitutional Government, Director & Ed Gilbertson and Sherry Lindberg Gilbertson Senior Legal Fellow, Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at The Heritage Foundation testified in May of 2018 about more than 48,000 state and local “collateral consequences” that destroy families but which folks might not have heard about before they decided to take that plea deal. Because these “civil” penalties are so destructive to a family’s chance to keep everyone together, here’s an excerpt from Mr. Malcolm’s 4 May 2018 testimony:

“Collateral consequences are considered to be civil in nature and thus distinct from criminal laws and penalties, so courts, prosecutors, and defense attorneys have generally treated them as falling outside the scope of their control and immediate concern. Few are aware of the full scope of these “post-sentence civil penalties, disqualifications, or disabilities” that follow a conviction, including criminal defendants and defense counsel. They should be.

“Similar problems can arise with respect to another category of collateral consequences: those that revoke receipt of or eligibility for certain government benefits. For example, a criminal conviction may cost a military veteran his or her pension, insurance, and right to medical treatment, which is particularly troubling because studies indicate that veterans who are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and therefore in serious need of medical treatment may be more likely to commit crimes. 

Strifeblog Henry part II 425 x 197As I explained on Strifeblog in August, in discussing a lawyer’s duties to a client,

“You do the best you can, though, because you swore you would and because the outcome of a criminal case – regardless of whether a client goes to prison – frequently inflicts significant consequences on the lives and fortunes of not just your client but also your client’s family. A criminal conviction, the criminal record that follows it, and any collateral consequences from the conviction, e.g., loss of professional license, reduction in amount of VA disability compensation, termination of VA pension payments, deportation, denial of access to public housing and federal student aid, etc., can hurt and even destroy families.”

Veteran staffed + veteran occupied civilian sector lock-up facilities

Veterans Serving Veterans” applied multi-product research project. Initial pre-project research underway. Project objective: if comprehensive research activity confirms pre-project research findings, then project seeks to contribute applicable information and relevant facts necessary for public policy communities to make informed decisions re establishment of lock-up units for military veterans who are held pre-judgment or incarcerated following criminal conviction, with such facilities to be characterized by four attributes:

(a) both staff and population are comprised solely of military veterans;

(b) facility policies, procedures, and practices are informed by current science re specialized needs of this highly specialized population with an eye toward avoiding population management practices that trigger combat-trauma associated symptomology;

(c) the provision of expert individualized evaluation and treatment for detainees or inmates suffering from internal and external trauma, whether acquired in combat or otherwise; and

(d) for veterans serving term of imprisonment by judgment, the provision of pre- and post-release transition/re-entry services designed to seek solutions for veterans who face especially difficult challenges securing sufficient income, housing, and services due to felony convictions, “bad paper” discharges, loss of or ineligibility for VA and other federal benefits or professional licenses, or whose continued injuries restrict available work options.

** Recent discussions with experts who’ve seen their proposed model legislation passed into law by state legislatures should encourage not just protections for military families whose children are taken into emergency custody by state officials; it’s reasonable to expect that these nascent relationships can also contribute to legislative support for further experimentation, and the establishment of, vet-focused jails, prisons, and tenant institutions within existing facilities.

Summary of researcher experience re detention- and incarceration-relevant issues

Charles LK Bloeser began his legal career as an assistant district attorney in the State of Oklahoma, where his responsibilities included pursuing the State of Oklahoma’s interests in criminal and civil cases. For most of the years since then, he’s dedicated his skillset to representing criminal defendants, appellants, and post-conviction petitioners in state and federal courts in the United States, including certiorari practice before the United States Supreme Court. Mr. Bloeser’s represented incarcerated clients in federal constitutional challenges to the terms and conditions of their confinement. He’s represented clients in federal district courts in Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Arizona, as well as in cases before the United States Courts of Appeal for the Fifth Circuit, Ninth Circuit, and Tenth Circuit. Mr. Bloeser’s interviewed clients and witnesses in state and federal lock-up facilities in Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. Researcher maintains a Tennessee law license.

Almost 30 identified pre-project issues for this research activity include:

  • determination of how vet-dedicated facility to be designated / classified for purposes of institutional and inmate administration, for example, if facility designated under U.S. BOP, then inmates from USPs likely wouldn’t be allowed into the program but perhaps some from FCIs, dependent on offense of conviction, inmate disciplinary record, but most likely from lower-level correctional environments such as camps;
  • consideration of inmate disciplinary options and the extent to which these can be applied given a veteran’s particular mental and physical health considerations including, e.g., PTSD, blunt-force and explosive-blast-induced traumatic brain injury; absence or limitation of function with human limbs;
  • review extent to which WIT-SEC procedures can or must be employed for inmates at high risk of inside or external manipulation and threat by foreign governments, terror networks, and other threats to the safety of inmates and KSAs they possess;
  • examination of protections that need to be put in place for the protection of veterans who are not only inmates but also witnesses to crimes and other events for which they will be called to testify, including when an inmate is called to answer questions and/or testify in a criminal case against another housed inmate;
  • analysis of the various legal environments within which a vet-dedicated facility would operate, incl. state and federal constitutional requirements; process for redress and civil rights liability issues; professional licensing matters; applicable employment and contract law; applicability of statutory and DEA regulatory provisions concerning psychotropic drugs and their administration; and search for alternatives to exorbitant prison phone call rates and other practices and procedures that sever, often permanently, inmates from their families, resulting in increased vulnerability to health challenges, inability to access medical care and necessary medications, homelessness, and suicide.

Some challenges faced by veterans who would be detained or incarcerated in facilities such as those under consideration in this research activity

“[Those with bad paper discharges] are more likely to have mental health conditions and twice as likely to commit suicide. They are more likely to be homeless and to be involved with the criminal justice system.”

Legal Services Center, Harvard University, Nat’l Veterans Legal Services Program & Swords to Ploughshares. (2016, March).Underserved: How the VA Wrongfully Excludes Veterans with Bad Paper. Cambridge, MA: Harvard. 23

 “Veterans who received bad-paper discharges are overrepresented in the criminal justice system. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 23.2% of veterans in prison and 33.2% of veterans in jail were discharged with bad-paper, compared to less than 5% of the total veterans population.”

Legal Services Center, Harvard University, National Veterans Legal Services Prog. & Swords to Ploughshares 23

“. . . The VA created a Veteran Justice Outreach (VJO) program with staff who provide case management and other supportive services to veterans to help them avoid unnecessary incarceration. However, the VJO Program can only assist VA-eligible veterans, . . . one-third of Veteran Treatment Courts do not allow veterans who are not “VA eligible” to participate in their programs at all.”

Amicus Briefing

Crafting proposed model legislation designed to get more military families back together is not the only research activity that benefits especially well from the tools in this particular lawyer’s skill set and experience. Writing amicus briefs in cases that affect past, present, and future members of the Armed Forces is another. This comment from a law professor who clerked for two justices on the United States Supreme Court is from a few years ago, and it is specific to this lawyer’s practice at the United States Supreme Court. The diligence and commitment to producing top-shelf legal work are the same:

This past year, Charles called me several times for consultation on petitions for certiorari to the Supreme Court. Although an excellent writer and advocate already, Charles solicited my insights as a former Supreme Court law clerk on how to make a compelling case for review. The result of Charles’ extra efforts were two petitions that made the best case for certiorari possible given the available facts and law, and that were better than many of the hundreds of petitions by regular Supreme Court practitioners that I have reviewed.”

Prof. Joe Thai, University of Oklahoma College of Law

Charles Bloeser is licensed to practice law by the State of Tennessee (Tennessee Board of  Professional Responsibility #024022), in the United States. Prior to that, he served as an assistant district attorney and criminal trial and appellate lawyer in the State of Oklahoma. Attorney Bloeser has represented clients in a number of state and federal trial and appellate courts, as well as in certiorari practice at the United States Supreme Court. Having opted for inactive status while not in Tennessee, he’s open to providing contract research and writing services for legal counsel pursuing matters that concern the priorities of combatresearchandprose. He will explore whether returning his law license to active status will make it easier to do more good for more past and present military personnel and their families.

The following is a sample of emails from the last 12 – 14 months, reflecting one failed attempt after another to make peace with these folks and secure the funding necessary to work full-time on projects that will benefit past and present military personnel and their families

Where additional factual, contextual, or explanatory content has been added, these appear in red. You’ll note that a number of these emails attempt to appeal to reason and rationality. But I’ve now learned that they went in together on a condo in Florida and have already moved away.

Shall we begin?

10 March 2018 email to Fr. Robert Hendrickson, III, rector at St. Philips Tucson, formerly handled corporate communication for Brooks Brothers, served as PR guy for Trinity Wall Street, and former Republican political operative, advising him that tentative referral was made to the authorities for possible investigation re apparent on-line child predator, who works as IT/cyber military contractor, and also appeared to be public policy adversary.

A brief detour: even though I’d found it necessary to make a tentative referral of the above IT/cyber govt contractor for investigation as an apparent on-line child predator, i included him, along with several other influential and highly networked persons I have good reason to believe could help bring a swift end to the conflict. Current bio and contact information for these individuals are among the contents of a giftwrapped three-ring binder that I personally delivered to the church office on or about Fr. Robert’s birthday before last, along with a card requesting assistance putting an end to the fight.

This was before I knew that the LGBT and human smuggling/sanctuary crowds were among my adversaries. This was before I learned that St. Philips Tucson is one of more than 750 Episcopal churches that have entered into formal relationships with Integrity, a nonprofit organization that for many years has been running a national political campaign that’s had great success achieving LGBT political goals. The goal that my former parish church in Tucson and 750 + other Episcopal churches have signed onto is one that, rather than guard society against all manner of sexual deviants, demands that we “welcome” and “affirm” them.

The individual I complain about to LinkedIn in the following request for assistance, summarily and without stated cause threw me out of a 70,000 member vet-focused LinkedIn group, and he manages a dozen social media networks for the same national security crowd my work is supposed to be serving. He’s among those included in Fr. Robert’s binder.

Jumping ahead to 5 September 2018 email to Fr. Robert inquiring as to wa whether he thought that the continued strangling alive of almost everything I produced or shared to benefit vets and their families might be prompted by aggression related to a 2004 article for my fellow lawyers and my work for Senator Jim Inhofe, a reliable conservative from Oklahoma and current Chairman of the Senate Armed Services committee.

14 September 2018 follow-up email to Fr. Robert again requesting that he facilitate a meeting with a Mr. Bill Carrell, an apparent associate of the gentleman I referred for possible investigation as an apparent on-line child predator, and someone I have good reason to think has information that may be key to finally resolving the conflict with this extreme leftist alliance so that I can get back to the serious business of research fbo wounded warriors and their families.

As i advised Fr. Robert on 10 March and as I had previously advised the authorities, I learned about Mr. Carrell because he appeared separately on the incriminating Facebook page of the IT/cyber govt contractor. I advised both Fr. Robert and the authorities I’d made the referral about that I’d seen nothing to suggest that Mr. Carrell might also be (apparently) involved with very young girls.

10 July 2018 email to Conrad Plimpton re further show of good will by me to adversaries, following substantial showing of good will on 7 November 2018.

screenshot_20190607-014402_print spooler-15402784256606984343..jpg

This may be a good place to insert a 10 July 2018 supplement to my 12 May 2018 crime report and accompanying evidence that I filed with the FBI IC3 (cybercrimes) office. It references my 22 June 2018 attempt to get advice re an armistice that I wanted to propose, from a DOJ attorney at the USAO’s office in Tucson. He’d been my opposing counsel in a federal civil case with my dad in the late 1990s.

A good faith mistake derailed that effort, though. Conrad told me that when he broached the subject of getting us together on this, that the AUSA angrily snapped that he didn’t want to have anything to do with me. They talked at a 7 July 2018 tropical-themed Rotary event that Conrad had invited me to at a country club on the east side of Tucson.

I was still putting together a substantial social-media focused good-faith peace offering the evening of 7 July 2018 and wanted to complete it and email it to Conrad before I left for the event. By the time I got there, though, Conrad had left to catch a plane from Sky Harbor. But he later told me that when he brought the matter up with that lawyer earlier on the evening of 7 July, it was the AUSA’s belief that I was the same person as my father that he gave for not wanting to have anything to do with me. Perhaps worse than that, the lawyer had, according to Conrad, as a result of that belief suffered great distress for nearly two decades.

When I later reflected on a fellow lawyer’s lengthy distress all because he made a simple mistake that I could have made, it got me thinking. An object lesson that I crafted for my fellow lawyers, appears after this IC3 supplemental.

25 July 2018 follow-up email to Howell Herring, former deputy IT director for City of Philadelphia, who now serves in the same role for City of Tucson, and his wife, Mary Hickert Herring, St. Philips Tucson vestry member, yet again trying to get help settling the feud from this particularly well-networked couple, fellow University of the South (Sewanee) alumni, who served for 3 years as mentors of my Sewanee-based EfM theological seminar that meets Tuesday evenings on the St. Philips Tucson property.

A couple of notes of interest re Education for Ministry (EfM): more than 800 EfM groups, their mentors linked by an on-line messaging system, are run every year out of Sewanee’s school of theology. Sewanee, itself, was founded by the Southern dioceses of the Episcopal Church  and it remains as a cluster of institutions under authority of the Episcopal Church. As you’ll see in another email, Mr. Clyde Kunz, an influential Episcopalian who spends most of his hours working for the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona, was also approached by me in attempt to quiet the restless natives. Clyde is an LGBT community member who moved to Tucson to take a job  with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra some years ago, runs his own non-profit consulting business and is an EfM mentor at another Episcopal Church in Tucson.

31 July 2018 email to Conrad Plimpton in advance of his meeting with Peggy Hutchison for the purpose, I had proposed, of defusing the ongoing conflict with the leftist alliance by getting Peggy Hutchison, the CEO at former employer Primavera Foundation – who had always held me in high regard – to back the effort to resolve the conflict.

Information prepared for Conrad Plimpton in advance of his having another meeting in New Jersey with Ranger Schleck, West Pointer, defense/space materials contractor, who has served for several years as COO of Community Solutions. A bit later, I tell you more about who they are and why they, more than almost any other civilian sector participants, could without too much trouble, shut down this conflict and meaningfully encourage a mutually acceptable resolution to it. That’s why Jamie Schleck keeps showing up in this chronology.

7 October 2018 failed attempt to get assistance shutting down the war at the Diocesan level from Episcopalian LGBT community member and non-profit professional Clyde Kunz, whose then current and past clients include Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation, longtime employer of Beth Carey, COO at Tucson’s Primavera Foundation and longtime confidant of Peggy Hutchison and “Punch” Woods, a former, well-respected executive director of the Southern Arizona Food Bank. Punch told me once that every three months, the three of them get together for supper at one of their homes.

 

Screenshot_20190609-180931

Although the issues have changed since then, one might say that Beth Carey started this war in the Spring of 2017.  She told me in the upstairs hallway at Primavera’s building at 702 South 6th Avenue, Tucson, that she did not disagree with my structural analysis of an assessment tool used to decide which homeless vets and others get housing with federal dollars. She told me that it had, in fact, confirmed her long-time concerns about the survey instrument. My reports (March 1 and March 13, 2017) found that nearly six out of every ten questions on the analyzed survey instrument are, structurally, fatally flawed. The result of these fatal design flaws is that the nationally used tool to pick who’s housed for 3 or 4 months and who’s kicked back to the curb determines relative vulnerability with the precision of a carnival raffle drum. 

Beth started the war in late March or early April of 2017 when she, in the language of Western lore, told me to shut up and lie about it. The woman on the left in this photo was or still is Primavera Foundation’s CFO.

In March 2019, I began efforts to interest members of a local philanthropic group, 100 + Tucson Women Who Care, in three matters: (1) encouraging Arizona-licensed lawyers who practice business, non-profit organization, insurance, regulatory law, etc. to look into what would be required to establish and provide to those on the streets a secured refrigeration  service for insulin and other medications that are worthless if not kept cool; (2) exerting their influence to put a stop to local Drag Queen Story Hour activities held in libraries and bookstores around the country (these events are used to normalize sexual deviancy and to give sexual predators access to small children); and (3) to use their power and influence to get Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to stand down and work toward a mutually satisfactory resolution to the present conflict.

The concern I still have, and one which I’ve expressed to Bishop Curry and others, is that if I’m left with no reasonable alternative to suing the Episcopal Church and members of its extreme leftist alliance for damages suffered by their vast and highly destructive character assassination campaign against me, the scope of permissible discovery and investigation activities in that type of case and under even just the facts known so far, would be so broad and so deep that it would, without doubt, lead to divulging a lot of private information about donors. This would discourage much private philanthropy, especially among donors who prefer or need to keep their financial matters private.

My hope was that if I could interest them in one or more of these issues, I might have a realistic chance of securing from their group both financial support and a public endorsement that might begin to undo some of the damage. But I swung and missed three times.

3 October 2018 proposed language for Ranger Jamie Schleck, Conrad’s friend who serves as COO at nationally-respected Community Solutions, following another meeting among myself, Conrad, and wife Ann Plimpton. I think I’ve concluded that Conrad’s been more foe than friend. But he’s one of very few indiduals I know who, within 24 hours, would be able to advocate with most of the key decision makers and influencers in the Country. 

The reason that I encouraged Conrad to advocate with Community Solutions’ COO Jamie Schleck is this, in a nutshell. But in a blogpost on his company’s website, the creator and key spokesperson for the worse-than-worthless instrument writes that it is the reason he’s been invited to the Obama White House later that day. And he credits, or implicates, Community Solutions as the reason that his assessment tool gained acceptance across the country as quickly as it did.

14 November 2018 email to “Punch” Woods, longtime confidant of aggressive and extraordinarily well-networked adversaries Peggy Hutchison and Beth Carey, urging that they use their influence to help bring a peaceful end to the conflict. I make the argument with three examples of applied research issues that very few others are qualified to handle. Again, no favorable response or action followed this appeal.

This is the same “Punch” Woods who three days later, on 17 November, would receive the first of 5 written notice and warnings (including 2 reminders)  on behalf of Peggy, Beth, and their allies. These warned them not to take any action against Christine now that we were dating. They were advised that because of a sufficiently identified medical condition, any actions against her by them would bring increased risk of causing her serious harm or worse. Rather than respond favorably to this information, the alliance has its its skilled operative exploiting Christine’s vulnerabilities.

There’s a lot more emails to quite a few more well-connected and influential Episcopalians and others, reflecting many more doomed good-faith attempts to get back to doing what I do best for past and present members of our various national security communities and their families. All of these have failed.

Two examples of ongoing smear campaign tactics that undermine potential funders’ perceived viability of the proposed research initiative

EXAMPLE 1: Current day combat – related trauma issues presented through the experiences of Allied airmen flying bombing runs over occupied Europe during World War II

*** The first three images below are from an article project that stalled when LinkedIn – I assume – abruptly and without notice sliced the head off a scholarly collaboration with a number of British Military History subject matter experts. These are smart, experienced people in and out of government who introduced me to relevant source materials from the UK that were new to me. One of those sources, the late Ben Shephard’s A War of Nerves: soldiers and psychiatrists in the twentieth century, has proved itself more valuable than any other source on the subject of trauma as it’s experienced by military service personnel.

The hatchet job on our collaboration occurred, if I remember right, somewhere in the 24-hour space between these Brits’ enthusiastic source sharing re Great Britain’s decision to follow America’s lead in performing leukotomy/ lobotomy procedures on World War II veterans and the moment when those same experts as well as quite a few others, simply vanished, most not to be seen again. Not even when I shared what I’d written about Britain’s decision to drink the leukotomy/lobotomy KoolAid with the sources and ideas they’d given me.

There are 3 items I hope you’ll take note of in these images: (1) the number of reported views for each post; (2) the directional path those numbers take; and (3) any notable changes in the composition of employers who appear in the left column as a result of having seen the posts and engaged with them.

ON LIFE SUPPORT: Open-source article explains why SOF troops are needed now more than ever.

The second example of research shop viability getting sucker-punched can be seen in a sequence of hich relate to a images related to an almost overnight enthusiasm for my research article about fallen “Delta Force” operator Josh Wheeler and the kinds of work and personalities such jobs demand, especially in an ever more challenging international security environment.

The open-source article introduces us to fallen U.S. Army MSgt Joshua L. Wheeler (1975 -2015), from Sequoyah County, Oklahoma and who was last assigned to 1st SFOD-D. Sequoyah County is one of 20 counties assigned to me for the 1996 reelection campaign of U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe, successor to Senator John McCain as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services committee. Cherokee warrior Josh Wheeler had enlisted in the Army the year before my political work in Oklahoma’s northeastern corner began.

Praise from cleared military and ex-military told me that I’d gotten a lot right. [Here’s a link to the renamed article.]

https://combatresearchandprose.com/2019/06/09/in-2018-we-still-need-our-warrior

But that’s a problem for those peddling the lie that I’m the one who’s really a security threat.

So, for more than a year the SOF/Josh Wheeler article has been fighting for its life. Time and again Facebook has blocked my efforts to post the article because it’s “against community standards.” And Facebook and LinkedIn (it appears) have cooked up fraudulent analytics that suggest the article’s really not that good and not much of anybody cared about it. The bogus analytics now appear where the legit numbers used to be. Both sets of numbers can be seen in the images I provide here.

phi delta phi logo 200 x 229A few words about this lawyer and researcher:

He has frequently been in my court handling matters by appointment under the Criminal Justice Act. He is always prepared, effective, and above reproach, ethically.”

– U.S. District Court Judge

. . . Charles has always been an innovative, responsible and thorough advocate for his clients. We don’t often agree, but he is a thoughtful professional in his representation. I have found him to be particularly scrupulous in ethical matters.”

– Assistant U.S. Attorney

“Charles himself is also admirably dedicated to improving his own practice. This past year, Charles called me several times for consultation on petitions for certiorari to the Supreme Court. Although an excellent writer and advocate already, Charles solicited my insights as a former Supreme Court law clerk on how to make a compelling case for review. The result of Charles’ extra efforts were two petitions that made the best case for certiorari possible given the available facts and law, and that were better than many of the hundreds of petitions by regular Supreme Court practitioners that I have reviewed. Afterwards, at Charles’ request, we met to go over his petitions with an eye towards producing even stronger ones in the future.”

– Law Professor and former law clerk for two justices on the U.S. Supreme Court

Among researcher’s published research are works re Libyan-supported Jihadi terrorism in the Western Hemisphere, civilian-military law enforcement relations, federal criminal law, and Federal court procedure. His research agenda includes national security/defense/ veterans issues, with special attention to those suffering from shell shock aka combat trauma aka PTS/PTSD and related challenges.

 

Selected praise for author’s recent research products:

Excellent piece of writing. You have an excellent start for a book about Wheeler. I wish I would have had some of your material for two of the Veteran’s Day speeches I gave the past couple of days. I’ll use next year.” Rear Admiral, USN (Ret), personal email re Cherokee DELTA Operator: Invisible. Not Unseeable.” (Nov. 2017)

Stunningly accurate piece of writing that will hit a chord with anybody who has served in any of the war-torn areas of the world.” Senior Operations Officer/Flight Commander, RAF (Ret), commenting on “Thank You for Your Service.” (Sept. 2017)

“I have read your article very carefully. It is a most thought-provoking piece of writing by an expert in the true meaning of the word. . ..” Command Officer, Royal Navy (Ret), personal message re “Writing Is About Turning Blood into Ink.” (June 2018)

NEW FROM STRIFEBLOG and this lawyer – an ugly true story of a former client: Part I of Henry: a wounded soldier forgotten by all in an American jail – by all except his brothers who fell beside him in Vietnam

STRIFE. Henry Part 1. Charles Bloeser article on Strifeblog 2 August 2018. 500 x 267

“But for this combat veteran’s wife, Henry was never the kind of man who could be distilled into simple words like “defendant” and “perpetrator and “abuser.” There was no black and white in being struck by a man she knew had always loved her but whose best efforts to get relief from the symptoms of war had proved little more than the American version of a snipe hunt.

“Decades of medical practice have allowed the physician to see the signs of trauma in a broad range of patients who’ve served in the military and those who haven’t. In patients who’ve been in combat and those who have not. And while he does not suggest that a survivor of domestic violence has no claim to the label or resources associated with a PTSD diagnosis, there is, he agrees, a clinically meaningful difference between the kind of trauma that person suffers and the nature of the trauma experienced by members of the armed forces who must decide again and again which of the identically dressed men, women, and children in a dust-soaked, IED-laced town square can and might kill you or those you’ve sworn to protect.”

Scars in the right places

We choose to serve. And when we choose to serve, sometimes chance chooses us. Every deployed service member leaves behind someone who cares, someone who, when giving one last hug before their warrior ships out, feels their pride clash with the fear that this last hug might be the last hug. After that, every call from an unknown number, every unexpected knock on the door, reignites the constant worry in the daily lives of those on the home front, making them shudder at the prospect of what might be.” – Gus Biggio served as a Marine in Afghanistan in 2009, quoted by the Washington Post

More than a dozen months ago I wrote to an Army general that the life I’ve known since first being introduced to the ill-mannered end of a bayonet in Africa at age 5 has prepared me better than most civilians to write about what our wounded warriors and their families have to go through all the time. I asked him – as I ask all who’ve done military service – to support this published researcher and my effort to get off the ground and make thrive a modest open-source “think tank” committed to producing high-quality research products that are grounded in the way life is for our past and present military personnel and their families. Not grounded in the way that I and others who’ve never served might want or assume your lives to be. Research products that ask and seek to answer this question: What will those whose policy choices affect past and present military personnel and their families, need to know if they’re to fix this problem or that one?

I can’t and won’t try to argue with those who say that because I’ve never served in the military I “don’t know what it’s like.” They’ right. I don’t know what it’s like.

30052545_10216313867461710_5603976886059541288_o

 

I wrote an essay some time back about the men from the U.S. Army’s 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division who were owned by Uncle Sam lock, stock, and barrel when, in late 1950, they were ordered into a Communist Chinese hornets’ nest they had heard didn’t exist. But I didn’t know – I couldn’t know – how even one soldier felt when he learned that what he’d been told about being home by Thanksgiving wasn’t true. I don’t have a single reference point to help me understand how grandad felt as his soul bled out on the battlefields at Unsan, DPRK.

As much as this writer agrees that he should feel what those warriors felt and know intimately what too many still experience, I don’t have a way to make that happen.

But I want to propose something. And I hope that y’all will agree.

It’s this: the thing about meeting the unfriendly end of a bayonet when you’re a five-year-old kid living below the Sahara is that early on you get to see things different from most folks back home. It’s even better if – like I was – you’re a kid living in a place where the bodies of family members who vanish are sometimes returned in horrible shape but with a certificate of natural death. But as a lot of veterans’ kids know far better than I, it sucks when each moment is drenched in fear that those who love you and protect you will end up dead, leaving you to ask, “what’s gonna happen to me?”

I learned early on that my country and those tasked to do its work operate under threat 24/7. The only question about my duty to God and country has always been nothing more than how I would carry it out. And even though it didn’t work out for me to serve in my nation’s armed forces, as an attorney I still have a sworn duty as to the United States Constitution.
One thing about being a lawyer who works to send people to prison and then a lawyer who works hard to keep your clients out of prison is that you ask a lot of questions and you listen carefully to what people say and to what they don’t say. There’s not a critical fact that a prosecutor presents that doesn’t have to be proved or “stipulated to” by a criminal defendant. There’s not a consequential fact alleged against a defense attorney’s client that shouldn’t be met with “prove it.”

Fortunately for the men and women I’ve defended over the years, a lot of those questions and answers came during my first “lawyer job” after completing law school, passing the Bar exam, and working 20 counties for the 1996 re-election campaign of U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe. They’re lessons that I picked up during my service as an assistant D.A. in a rural judicial district in Oklahoma. I learned a lot of those lessons on the job. But I learned others after my experiences as a prosecutor had time to ferment.

Let’s begin with death duty. Lawyers on the D.A.’s team took one-week turns being available to law enforcement any time of day or night that they thought it best that a lawyer come see a dead person who’d been found. My experience was that the ME often arrived just minutes before I did.Oklahoma state seal 175 x 176

I’m pretty sure that we all saw some pretty nasty stuff during our weeks on death duty. I can’t, and don’t think that I should, forget one bright afternoon not far from the Kansas line. I had been called to a forlorn house two blocks from the D.A.’s office. Marty got there about the same time that I did, and we followed a sheriff’s deputy down a short hall to a room that had been spray-painted in blood earlier in the day. Marty had this ritual he had to go through before I asked any questions. So, the ME lit his cigar, pulled on his rubber gloves, and donned a hazmat suit stitched from gallows humor.

I had a hard time figuring out what exactly I was looking at in the place where a mother’s head should have been. Deputies told us that the woman’s son had been to visit her a few hours before she stripped naked and fired a shotgun into her mouth.

What I experienced in that room sticks with me and is probably why it was important to me years later that if, as I had planned, I fired a round into my skull with the revolver I was clutching in my hand, it was only right that I leave as small a mess as possible for those who cared about me to clean up.

My particular mix of work at the D.A.’s office meant that more often than not, I was the lawyer who represented the State in mental health commitment proceedings. These might happen in a courtroom with the judge robed and managing the hearing from the bench. That’s the way it was the day that an obviously brilliant, articulate gentleman eloquently explained that he was Jesus Christ and that he had some killin’ to do.

But the courtroom wasn’t the only place these emergency proceedings were held. Frequently the commitment hearing met legal standards but was a rather ugly, duct-taped proceeding held in the middle of the night in the local ER. Or, as happened one day, the judge presided over a woman’s commitment hearing at the jailhouse. We were in a bare holding cell or locker room. I forget which.

Those of us who had roles in that hearing happened to be men. So, we averted our eyes and hurried through the hoops that the law required us to pass through; the person whose life was in our hands was a young woman in a nearly catatonic state. She sat buck naked in front of us, a deputy explained, because she had been so persistent in trying to kill herself that jail staff decided the only way to keep her from getting it done was to take away any clothing item she might weaponize.

There seemed to be rhythm to the series of commitment hearings held each month. But God help the families, first responders, and my secretary each time the full moon paid a visit.

Years ago, a psychiatrist I called to the stand told jurors that some of the smartest, most creative, and most accomplished members of society have, in my words, fought the devil to stay alive. The people he listed had household names.

The questions that I asked gave the doctor a chance to testify about a few things the jurors might not have heard of in our “if it bleeds it leads” news culture. Jurors found his testimony helpful, and the trial ended the way that I thought it should.

I accepted everything that expert witness had said with professional detachment. As with most witnesses, I doubt that I felt an emotional response to anything the doctor had told jurors. But I knew this was good stuff to keep at the ready.

A few years after that trial, a lot more of what the psychiatrist told jurors became personal for me. And I was forced to learn at least a few intimate truths about the wicked high wire that life demands so many of our veterans walk.

I’ve never been quite able to figure out why that happened. But at the time I was trench deep in reviewing seemingly never-ending evidence that federal prosecutors had turned over in a multi-state child-sex-trafficking case. I was having a hard time shaking an image my mind had created while reading through FBI FD-302s and other investigation documents: a ten-year-old girl who’d been kidnapped and taken from her home state so that she could be sold out for sex. What was left of the child’s broken body had been found in a dumpster behind a grocery store. The poor kid had refused a bottom bitch’s order to let an over-the-road trucker rape her.

My little girl had been that age not too many years earlier.

As far as I know, I was never involuntarily committed for treatment. And only once was an ambulance sent to collect me. It seems that once I finally decided to call the number on the “please don’t jump” sign in front of my jeep, I spent too long discussing the merits of crashing onto State Route 96 from a popular diving bridge in Williamson County, Tennessee. Number 7 on Forbes 2017 list of 10 wealthiest counties in the United States.

One Size Fits All

Recently departed British historian Ben Shephard reports unsettling truths about how we now decide who suffers from shell shock aka combat trauma aka post-traumatic stress. He writes:

“The rapid growth of ‘traumatology’ within medicine was helped by the authority which Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder quickly acquired by being included in the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-III) in 1980. Not only was there now a ‘Chinese menu’ of its symptoms, easy for both doctor and patient to read, there were also standardised packages of diagnostic questionnaires and psychometric devices. No longer need the doctor struggle to understand his patient’s life history and personality, assess his ability to cope, make a ‘subjective’ judgement on his state. Now, the checklist of symptoms told him at a glance whether the patient’s condition was PTSD or not; it was all ‘objective’, taken out of the clinician’s hands.”[v]

I don’t claim to have PTS(D). And the experts I met with back then seemed to split on that question.

In fact, I’ve had a pretty trauma-free life. At least when compared to those we send into combat and their spouses and children who may never get back the same person who left. So, I don’t even want to go down that road.

But Mr. Shephard’s point that we’ve objectified away even the process by which a clinician asks the right questions, listens deliberately, and tailor-makes a treatment plan helps explain, at least to me, one of the reasons that veterans who suffer from PTS(D) don’t get the help they need.

People who should know better can be quick to attach labels that lack nuance. And knowing that we do it to our vets makes it easier for me to divine the frustration flowing through the words of a former Navy SEAL who broke silence in order to let others in the NSW community know about new evidence from post-mortem studies of explosive-blast traumatic brain injury.

If I read the 40th Sergeant at Arms of the United States Senate correctly, evidence of blast-wave damage to the brain structure confirmed his concern that those who treated his son for PTS-related symptoms took the easy way out when it came to diagnosing and treating U.S. Navy SEAL Ryan Francis Larkin.

“Throughout Ryan’s painful journey, the ‘system’ defaulted toward treating him as a behavioral problem or a mental health patient. The ‘system’ hung all types of labels on him to justify their assessments and actions.”[vi]

As his father put it, “[o]ne Sunday morning this past [April 23, 2017], Ryan ended his pain, but ours only continued.”
“Time for Group!”

There are a few things only experienced by those of us lucky enough to have spent a few days, a few weeks, months, or maybe longer in a hospital with doors that lock you in, staff who immediately take your phone and shoelaces, mandatory queue for meds and meals, and maybe an hour or two during the week when the people who love you come by, avert their own eyes, and fumble for something to say.

One of those things you learn quick is that even if, as I did back then, one goes voluntarily into one of these places, once the doors lock behind you, you can’t just walk out of the place at will. I was there because I knew that I needed the help of professionals who know a lot more about the brain and mind than I did. But I also wanted to get the hell out as soon as I could. So, I learned quickly how many “group” therapy sessions I could miss and how much I had to participate in those groups if I wanted to be reported in staff notes as being committed to my “recovery.” The more committed you are, the earlier they let you out. At least that was my experience.

I learned how much I had to comply with staff directives. And I kept my mouth shut around the staff person we all called “Nurse Ratched.” This approach worked well, and I never had to stay in one of those places very long.

Speaking just for me, though, two facts of life about those facilities and the reasons that they exist have a way of beating up on you years after I needed that kind of specialized care. One is that while on the way there, it’s damned easy to burn just enough bridges that no matter how good you are at what you do you find yourself without enough work references to complete the job application on the back side of a McDonald’s tray liner.

The other thing is that even though they tell you not to, you come to care a lot about those who intimately understand what you’ve been through – about those who “get it” – and you stay in touch after y’all leave the place.

But too many times, these people – whom you’re sure will make it – don’t. And our hearts get rubbed raw, as mine did one year ago today while reading a Facebook post from not long before thar, written by the only son of someone I shared a lot of meals and down-time with at one of those places.

Both his mom and I were in love with Tennessee but we also had strong ties to Arizona. That son’s mom made you think. Made you feel. She was someone I never spent time with on the outside. But i’d come to care a lot about her anyway. She lost her fight with her demons a few years ago.

Her son, a child she always talked about and who’s now older, had written a note to his mom in cyberspace to tell her how much he loves her and how much his life hurts without her and how much he just wants to give up so that he can be with her.

My message for those I ask to support this research initiative is NOT “I almost put a bullet through my skull, so I must know how those guys feel.” It’s also not “I was scared dad would get killed so I know the anxiety that soldier felt when the best fighter in the squad was killed, leaving him to ask “what’s going to happen to me?”

My message for you is neither of those things. And it’s not a hundred other bogus equivalencies that someone who’s never served might make. I’m still a civilian who’s never done military service and whose life has spared me the ugly stuff y’all experience.

I still don’t get it. I can’t get it.Charles.photo.lawlibrary. 150 x 200

One big reason that this duct-taped, Bondo-filled life gives me a better shot than most civilians at doing this kind of work is that I’ve become very good at sorting out what questions need to be asked and figuring out where – and who – I need to go to for the answers, if there are any.

Countless hours with witnesses inside and outside criminal court proceedings has taught me to listen deliberately to the words that someone speaks but also to the words they don’t say. Or can’t say.

Another thing is that during my four years with a Tucson area non-profit that still does a lot right by a lot of people – veterans included – I got better at looking forward and observing how one domino in someone’s life falls onto another. And that one falls onto the next one. And so on. How an action now – whether intended or not – can have consequences for family members who won’t be born for another 20 years.

That’s a lesson many who’ve served in the military and their families have learned the hard way. Not just once. But again and again. That’s just one reason that the 93% of us who’ve never served need to start listening to the seven percent who have.

The best way that I can thank you for your service is to do what I can to make those of us who’ve never served start listening to you.

You can help me do that.

No, federal agents and other law enforcement have little interest in drinking socially with anti-government resister types. Here’s a year of emails that prove two truths: (1) I’m not the one who’s a danger to the American people; and (2) month in and month out, Episcopal clergy, laity, and their allies have obstructed every attempt to secure funding and technical support for applied research fbo wounded warriors and their families.

MY NOT WORKING VET-FOCUSED RESEARCH IS NOT FOR LACK OF TRYING

I’ve tried and failed once and again to communicate to those who love me that I’ve never given up on our wounded warriors nor their families. Using my skill set, being scarred in the right places, and still keeping and looking through the clear and the polished and the cracked and the broken lenses my life’s given me, all to produce high octane, practical research products that others can use to save lives, is the closest I’ll ever come to thanking these remarkable men and women for their service and sacrifice to our Nation and to the American people.

Fighting with the Rabid Left over human smuggling and Drag Queen Story Hour are not the work I’m best equipped to do. And they’re not the best way that I can serve those who’ve honored this nation by their service and sacrifice.

Besides, I’m a bookish, introverted type. “Cerebral,” as a couple of federal prosecutors have described me. It’s the evidence that can and must tell the story; my role is to pull it all together and offer it for your consideration.

I don’t like being the focus of attention, and I despise shining a spotlight on others because it seems that I have no other way to even try to protect them from harm. Especially harm they’ve done nothing to deserve.

 

MAYBE THESE EMAILS CAN EXPLAIN A FEW THINGS THAT I’VE NOT BEEN ABLE TO

Here’s just a portion of the emails I’ve written these past 12 months as part of my twin efforts to (a)  get everyone to stand down and find a resolution that does not include my personal destruction or that of those I love; and to (b) secure funding and technical support needed to make this applied research initiative work and thrive.

But whether spoken or not, the answer to each proposal is always the same: No.

But those arrayed against me and my efforts to do right by those who’ve done right by us, aren’t satisfied with refusing to help. They want blood. And it doesn’t matter that the U.S. Constitution has never enshrined a right to fuck someone over because you hate someone else.

KILLING THE TRUTH: 2 examples

It’s often assumed that one person’s operating environment in cyberspace is the same as it is for anyone else. But it’s not. And sometimes that electronic/digital work space and toolbox differ radically from those most folks are familiar with.

My enemies who’ve attacked an innocent woman because they hate me and the American values I aim to defend have already seriously undermined confidence that I can make this research initiative work. One way they’ve been so successful is to make sure that no one ever knows about my work.

ON LIFE SUPPORT: Current day combat – related trauma issues presented through the experiences of Allied airmen flying bombing runs over occupied Europe during World War II

*** The first three images below are from an article project that stalled when LinkedIn – I assume – abruptly and without notice sliced the head off a scholarly collaboration with a number of British Military History subject matter experts. These are smart, experienced people in and out of government who introduced me to relevant source materials from the UK that were new to me. One of those sources, the late Ben Shephard’s A War of Nerves: soldiers and psychiatrists in the twentieth century, has proved itself more valuable than any other source on the subject of trauma as it’s experienced by military service personnel.

The hatchet job on our collaboration occurred, if I remember right, somewhere in the 24-hour space between these Brits’ enthusiastic source sharing re Great Britain’s decision to follow America’s lead in performing leukotomy/ lobotomy procedures on World War II veterans and the moment when those same experts as well as quite a few others, simply vanished, most not to be seen again. Not even when I shared what I’d written about Britain’s decision to drink the leukotomy/lobotomy KoolAid.

There are 3 items I hope you’ll take note of in these images: (1) the number of reported views for each post; (2) the directional path those numbers take; and (3) any notable changes in the composition of employers who appear in the left column as a result of having seen the posts and engaged with them.

The second example of research shop viability getting sucker-punched can be seen in a sequence of six images that appear later in this post and which relate to a research article that I wrote about the operators tasked with the Nation’s hard jobs in an ever more challenging international security environment.

The open-source article introduces us to fallen U.S. Army MSgt Joshua L. Wheeler (1975 -2015), from Sequoyah County, Oklahoma and who was last assigned to 1st SFOD-D. Sequoyah County one of 20 counties assigned to me for the 1996 reelection campaign of U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe, successor to Senator John McCain as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services committee. Cherokee warrior Josh Wheeler had enlisted the year before my political work in Oklahoma’s northeastern corner began.

The article did well among members of the national security communities of the United States and its allies, most notably Great Britain. New requests to connect by security professionals – back in the day when the members of the natural and intended audience for my work were allowed to know that it existed – and praise from cleared military and ex-military told me that I’d gotten a lot right. [Here’s a link to the renamed article.]

https://combatresearchandprose.com/2019/06/09/in-2018-we-still-need-our-warrior

But that’s a problem for felons and Southern Arizona local “heroes” like Peggy Hutchison and John Fife, who’ve actively and from sea to shining sea undermined this Nation’s laws and endangered the American people by one means or another for decades but who have been peddling the bullshit story that I’m the one who’s really a security threat.

So, for more than a year the SOF/Josh Wheeler article has been fighting for its life. Time and again Facebook has blocked my efforts to post the article because it’s “against community standards.” And Facebook and LinkedIn (it appears) have cooked up fraudulent analytics that suggest the article’s really not that good and not much of anybody cared about it. The bogus analytics now appear where the legit numbers used to be. Both sets of numbers can be seen in the images I provide here.

HERE’S SOMETHING ELSE ABOUT THESE EMAILS

A number of these emails attempt to appeal to reason and rationality. But I’ve now learned that they went in together on a condo in Florida and have already moved away.

 

Here’s an example from a 14 November 2018 email to “Punch” Woods, longtime confidant of key  enemies Peggy Hutchison and Beth Carey. I try to talk sense into him with three examples of research issues that very few, if any, are as equipped as I am to recognize, let alone know what to do with them.

Their response? By hook or by crook launch a PSYOP capture or kill operation against a woman who’s done nothing to them. Nothing.

Except, of course, she loves me. And loving me – the object of their hate – is more than enough to impose on an innocent civilian their twisted form of justice. I just pray to God it’s not a capital sentence.

WHAT’S NEEDED FIRST

First priority for me is this woman’s safety and the best of federal resources and expertise for her reprogramming and recovery, at no expense to her or her family. And safety options for her, going forward. Of secondary, yet still of much importance is rebuilding the trust and confidence that Christine and her family and friends had in me before the prep work for Christine’s PSYOP began.

 

I’ve seen nothing from the Rabid Left to suggest that they’ll either act in good faith or obey the law about anything. Past performance from these folks hints at more trouble.

So, I could really use some folks to ride shotgun for me and bring along the folks who can secure for me effective endorsements from men and women and organizations that can correct audience members negative perceptions about me and the work that I do.

FUNDING COMBATRESEARCHANDPROSE

FOR discussion’s sake, I’m looking for financial, business, and technical support for the first 24 months of operation, with an additional 12 months conditional on securing publication in venues that serve national security decision makers and influencers whether in the U.S. or among the Nation’s allies.  For this to work, though, I need the broader national security professional community that’s the natural and intended audience for my research products to know that I’m a patriot who does good work fbo those you care about. And neither Christine nor I are security threats.

 

Shall we begin?

10 March 2018 email to Fr. Robert Hendrickson, III, rector at St. Philips Tucson, formerly handled corporate communication for Brooks Brothers, served as PR guy for Trinity Wall Street, and former Republican political operative, advising him that tentative referral was made to the authorities for possible investigation re apparent on-line child predator, who works as IT/cyber military contractor, and also appeared to be public policy adversary.

A brief detour: even though I’d found it necessary to make a tentative referral of the above IT/cyber govt contractor for investigation as an apparent on-line child predator, i included him, along with several other influential and highly networked persons I have good reason to believe could help bring a swift end to the conflict. Current bio and contact information for these individuals are among the contents of a giftwrapped three-ring binder that I personally delivered to the church office on or about Fr. Robert’s birthday before last, along with a card requesting assistance putting an end to the fight.

This was before I knew that the LGBT and human smuggling/sanctuary crowds were among my adversaries. This was before I learned that St. Philips Tucson is one of more than 750 Episcopal churches that have entered into formal relationships with Integrity, a nonprofit organization that for many years has been running a national political campaign that’s had great success achieving LGBT political goals. The goal that my former parish church in Tucson and 750 + other Episcopal churches have signed onto is one that, rather than guard society against all manner of sexual deviants, demands that we “welcome” and “affirm” them.

The individual I complain about to LinkedIn in the following request for assistance, summarily and without stated cause threw me out of a 70,000 member vet-focused LinkedIn group, and he manages a dozen social media networks for the same national security crowd my work is supposed to be serving. He’s among those included in Fr. Robert’s binder.

It’s not terribly important for you to read the following letter, although you may find it informative.

But it’s part of my effort to fight back against lies and insinuations made to the very audience I’m trying to serve. Lies that I’m the one who’s really a radical, anti-govt resister. A threat to America as pitched by those who’ve inflicted more harm on the United States and on the American people than could the combined inmates on a dozen states’ death rows.

14 September 2018 follow-up email to Fr.

As i advised Fr. Robert on 10 March and as I had previously advised the authorities, I learned about Mr. Carrell because he appeared separately on the incriminating Facebook page of the IT/cyber govt contractor. I advised both Fr. Robert and the authorities I’d made the referral about that I’d seen nothing to suggest that Mr. Carrell might also be (apparently) involved with very young girls.

10 July 2018 email to Conrad Plimpton re further show of good will by me to adversaries, following substantial showing of good will on 7 November 2018.

screenshot_20190607-014402_print spooler-15402784256606984343..jpg

This may be a good place to insert a 10 July 2018 supplement to my 12 May 2018 crime report and accompanying evidence that I filed with the FBI IC3 (cybercrimes) office. It references my 22 June 2018 attempt to get advice re an armistice that I wanted to propose, from a DOJ attorney at the USAO’s office in Tucson. He’d been my opposing counsel in a federal civil case with my dad in the late 1990s.

A good faith mistake derailed that effort, though. Conrad told me that when he broached the subject of getting us together on this, that the AUSA angrily snapped that he didn’t want to have anything to do with me. They talked at a 7 July 2018 tropical-themed Rotary event that Conrad had invited me to at a country club on the east side of Tucson.

I was still putting together a substantial social-media focused good-faith peace offering the evening of 7 July 2018 and wanted to complete it and email it to Conrad before I left for the event. By the time I got there, though, Conrad had left to catch a plane from Sky Harbor. But he later told me that when he brought the matter up with that lawyer earlier on the evening of 7 July, it was the AUSA’s belief that I was the same person as my father that he gave for not wanting to have anything to do with me. Perhaps worse than that, the lawyer had, according to Conrad, as a result of that belief suffered great distress for nearly two decades.

When I later reflected on a fellow lawyer’s lengthy distress all because he made a simple mistake that I could have made, it got me thinking. An object lesson that I crafted for my fellow lawyers, appears after this IC3 supplemental.

25 July 2018 follow-up email to Howell Herring, former deputy IT director for City of Philadelphia, who now serves in the same role for City of Tucson, and his wife, Mary Hickert Herring, St. Philips Tucson vestry member, yet again trying to get help settling the feud from this particularly well-networked couple, fellow University of the South (Sewanee) alumni, who served for 3 years as mentors of my Sewanee-based EfM theological seminar that meets Tuesday evenings on the St. Philips Tucson property.

A couple of notes of interest re Education for Ministry (EfM): more than 800 EfM groups, their mentors linked by an on-line messaging system, are run every year out of Sewanee’s school of theology. Sewanee, itself, was founded by the Southern dioceses of the Episcopal Church  and it remains as a cluster of institutions under authority of the Episcopal Church. As you’ll see in another email, Mr. Clyde Kunz, an influential Episcopalian who spends most of his hours working for the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona, was also approached by me in attempt to quiet the restless natives. Clyde is an LGBT community member who moved to Tucson to take a job  with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra some years ago, runs his own non-profit consulting business and is an EfM mentor at another Episcopal Church in Tucson.

Information prepared for Conrad Plimpton in advance of another meeting in New Jersey with Ranger Schleck

7 October 2018 failed attempt to get assistance shutting down the war at the Diocesan level from Episcopalian LGBT community member and non-profit professional Clyde Kunz, whose then current and past clients include Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation, longtime employer of Beth Carey, COO at Tucson’s Primavera Foundation and longtime confidant of Peggy Hutchison, Primavera Foundation CEO, and “Punch” Woods, former longtime director of the Southern Arizona Food Bank. Punch told me once that every three months, the three of them get together for supper at one of their homes.

Although the issues have changed since then, one might say that Beth Carey started this war in the Spring of 2017.  She told me in the upstairs hallway at Primavera’s building at 702 South 6th Avenue, Tucson, that she did not disagree with my structural analysis of an assessment tool used to decide which homeless vets and others get housing with federal dollars. She told me that it had, in fact, confirmed her long-time concerns about the survey instrument. My reports (March 1 and March 13, 2017) found that nearly six out of every ten questions on the analyzed survey instrument are, structurally, fatally flawed. Thevresult is that the nationally used tool to pick who’s housed for 3 or 4 months and who’s kicked back to the curb determines relative vulnerability with the precision of a carnival raffle drum. 

Beth started the war when she, in the language of Western lore, told me to shut up and lie about it.

In March 2019, I began efforts to interest members of a local philanthropic group, 100 + Tucson Women Who Care, in three matters: (1) encouraging Arizona-licensed lawyers who practice business, non-profit organization, insurance, regulatory law, etc. to look into what would be required to establish and provide to those on the streets a secured refrigeration  service for insulin and other medications that are worthless if not kept cool; (2) exerting their influence to put a stop to local Drag Queen Story Hour activities held in libraries and bookstores around the country (these events are used to normalize sexual deviancy and to give sexual predators access to small children); and (3) to use their power and influence to get Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to stand down and work toward a satisfactory resolution to the present conflict.

The concern I still have, and one which I’ve expressed to Bishop Curry, this group and others, is that if I’m left with no reasonable alternative to suing the Episcopal Church and members of its extreme leftist alliance for damages suffered by their vast and highly destructive character assassination campaign against me, the scope of permissible discovery and investigation activities in that type of case and under facts known so far would be so broad and so deep that it would, without doubt, discourage much private philanthropy, especially among donors who prefer to keep their financial matters private.

My hope was that if I could interest them in one or more of these issues, I might have a realistic chance of securing from their group both financial support and a public endorsement that might begin to undo some of the damage. But I swung and missed three times.

14 November 2018 email to “Punch” Woods, longtime confidant of recalcitrant adversaries Peggy Hutchison and Beth Carey, urging a peaceful end to the conflict and identifying three applied research issues very few others are qualified to do. No resolution followed this appeal either.

Three days later, on 17 November, Punch received the first of 5 written notice and warnings (including 2 reminders) for his Alliance allies not to take any action against a specific innocent woman because, due to a sufficiently-identified medical condition, any such act carried a very real risk of inflicting on her serious injury or death. Response from the Alliance? Launch the primary component of their attack against innocent victim at a support group that she attends for persons with that exact same, sufficiently identified medical condition.

There’s a lot more emails to quite a few more well-connected and influential Episcopalians and others, reflecting many more doomed good-faith attempts to get back to doing what I do best for past and present members of our various national security communities and their families.

But let’s just stop with yet another email to Peggy Hutchison, this one more than a year after I found it necessary to make a tentative report to authorities re a possible on-line child predator and following her alliance’s attacks on an extraordinary woman I’ve loved for a very long time. A woman who’s hoped month after month that I could stop this war, finally secure funding to support applied research activities for a population she cares a great deal about, too, and buy her a proper engagement ring.

EMails: For an entire year before extremist left alliance launched its baseless attack on an innocent American citizen in Tucson, Arizona, clergy and laity with the Episcopal Church, from the Presiding Bishop on down, obstructed one attempt after another to resolve feud for the benefit of America’s wounded warriors and their families.

I’ve tried and failed to communicate to those who love me that I’ve never given up on our wounded warriors nor their families. Using my skill set, some scars in the right places,  and the clear and the polished and the cracked and the broken lenses my life’s given me, to produce high octane, practical research products that others can use to save lives, is the closest I’ll ever come to thanking these remarkable men and women for their service and sacrifice to our Nation and to the American people.

Fighting with the Rabid Left over human smuggling and Drag Queen Story Hour are not the work I’m best equipped to do. And they’re not the best way that I can serve those who’ve honored this nation by their service and sacrifice.

Besides, I’m a bookish, introverted type. “Cerebral,” as a couple of federal prosecutors have described me. I don’t like being the focus of attention, and I despise shining a spotlight on others because it seems the only way to protect them from harm. Especially harm they’ve done nothing to deserve.

But what we see over and over again in these emails are good faith, well-considered efforts to shut down this goddamned war so that we can get back to those who deserve a hell of a lot better than they’re getting from us.

Here’s an example from a 14 November 2018 email to “Punch” Woods, longtime confidant of recalcitrant radicals Peggy Hutchison and Beth Carey. I try to talk sense into him with three examples of research issues that very few, if any, are as equipped as I to recognize, let alone know what to do with them.

 

Screenshot_20190609-162848

Their response? By hook or by crook launch a PSYOP capture or kill mission against a woman who’s done nothing to them.

Except, of course, she loves me. And loving me – the object of their hate – is more than enough to impose on an innocent civilian their twisted form of justice. I just pray to God it’s not a capital sentence.

Screenshot_20190607-161115_WordPress

 

First priority for me is this woman’s safety and the best of federal resources and expertise for her recovery, at no expense to her or her family.

I’ve seen nothing from the Rabid Left to suggest that they’ll either act in good faith or obey the law about anything. Past performance from these folks leaves me uncertain they won’t attack her again.

And I could really use some folks to ride shotgun for me and get me key endorsements and technical support so that we can get this project funded and I can get back to the important stuff. For this to work, I need the broader national security professionals to know that I’m not the one who’s a threat to the Nation.

Shall we begin?

10 March 2018 email to Fr. Robert Hendrickson, III, rector at St. Philips Tucson, formerly handled corporate communication for Brooks Brothers, served as PR guy for Trinity Wall Street, and former Republican political operative, advising him that tentative referral was made to the authorities for possible investigation re apparent on-line child predator, who works as IT/cyber military contractor, and also appeared to be public policy adversary.

A brief detour: even though I’d found it necessary to make a tentative referral of the above IT/cyber govt contractor for investigation as an apparent on-line child predator, i included him, along with several other influential and highly networked persons I have good reason to believe could help bring a swift end to the conflict. Current bio and contact information for these individuals are among the contents of a giftwrapped three-ring binder that I personally delivered to the church office on or about Fr. Robert’s birthday before last, along with a card requesting assistance putting an end to the fight.

This was before I knew that the LGBT and human smuggling/sanctuary crowds were among my adversaries. This was before I learned that St. Philips Tucson is one of more than 750 Episcopal churches that have entered into formal relationships with Integrity, a nonprofit organization that for many years has been running a national political campaign that’s had great success achieving LGBT political goals. The goal that my former parish church in Tucson and 750 + other Episcopal churches have signed onto is one that, rather than guard society against all manner of sexual deviants, demands that we “welcome” and “affirm” them.

As you’ll see in another email, Mr. Clyde Kunz, an influential Episcopalian who spends most of his hours working for the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona, was also approached by me in attempt to quiet the restless natives. Clyde is an LGBT community member who moved to Tucson to take a job  with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra some years ago, runs his own non-profit consulting business and is an EfM mentor at another Episcopal Church in Tucson.

7 October 2018 failed attempt to get assistance shutting down the war at the Diocesan level from Episcopalian LGBT community member and non-profit professional Clyde Kunz, whose then current and past clients include Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation, longtime employer of Beth Carey, COO at Tucson’s Primavera Foundation and longtime confidant of Peggy Hutchison, Primavera Foundation CEO, and “Punch” Woods, former longtime director of the Southern Arizona Food Bank. Punch told me once that every three months, the three of them get together for supper at one of their homes.

Although the issues have changed since then, one might say that Beth Carey started this war in the Spring of 2017.  She told me in the upstairs hallway at Primavera’s building at 702 South 6th Avenue, Tucson, that she did not disagree with my structural analysis of an assessment tool used to decide which homeless vets and others get housing with federal dollars. She told me that it had, in fact, confirmed her long-time concerns about the survey instrument. My reports (March 1 and March 13, 2017) found that nearly six out of every ten questions on the analyzed survey instrument are, structurally, fatally flawed. The result is that the nationally used tool to pick who’s housed for 3 or 4 months and who’s kicked back to the curb determines relative vulnerability with the precision of a carnival raffle drum. 

Beth started the war when she, in the language of Western lore, told me to shut up and lie about it.

In March 2019, I began efforts to interest members of a local philanthropic group, 100 + Tucson Women Who Care, in three matters: (1) encouraging Arizona-licensed lawyers who practice business, non-profit organization, insurance, regulatory law, etc. to look into what would be required to establish and provide to those on the streets a secured refrigeration  service for insulin and other medications that are worthless if not kept cool; (2) exerting their influence to put a stop to local Drag Queen Story Hour activities held in libraries and bookstores around the country (these events are used to normalize sexual deviancy and to give sexual predators access to small children); and (3) to use their power and influence to get Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to stand down and work toward a satisfactory resolution to the present conflict.

The concern I still have, and one which I’ve expressed to Bishop Curry, this group and others, is that if I’m left with no reasonable alternative to suing the Episcopal Church and members of its extreme leftist alliance for damages suffered by their vast and highly destructive character assassination campaign against me, the scope of permissible discovery and investigation activities in that type of case and under facts known so far would be so broad and so deep that it would, without doubt, discourage much private philanthropy, especially among donors who prefer to keep their financial matters private.

My hope was that if I could interest them in one or more of these issues, I might have a realistic chance of securing from their group both financial support and a public endorsement that might begin to undo some of the damage. But I swung and missed three times.

14 November 2018 email to “Punch” Woods, longtime confidant of recalcitrant adversaries Peggy Hutchison and Beth Carey, urging a peaceful end to the conflict and identifying three applied research issues very few others are qualified to do. No resolution followed this appeal either.

Three days later, on 17 November, Punch received the first of 5 written notice and warnings (including 2 reminders) for his Alliance allies not to take any action against a specific innocent woman because, due to a sufficiently-identified medical condition, any such act carried a very real risk of inflicting on her serious injury or death. Response from the Alliance? Launch the primary component of their attack against innocent victim at a support group that she attends for persons with that exact same, sufficiently identified medical condition.

There’s a lot more emails to quite a few more well-connected and influential Episcopalians and others, reflecting many more doomed good-faith attempts to get back to doing what I do best for past and present members of our various national security communities and their families.

But let’s just stop with yet another email to Peggy Hutchison, this one more than a year after I found it necessary to make a tentative report to authorities re a possible on-line child predator and following her alliance’s attacks on an extraordinary woman I’ve loved for a very long time. A woman who’s hoped month after month that I could stop this war, finally secure funding to support applied research activities for a population she cares a great deal about, too, and buy her a proper engagement ring.

[RESEARCHER UPDATE 6 June 2019]  My original note below, reports on the 2016 report from Swords to Plowshares and the Veterans Legal Clinic at Harvard. And it speaks of the notable loyalty and compassion that I’d seen among Marines, including for those who’ve died at their own hands and the women who’ve served as well. Given the nature of service that our Nation requires and has always required of our Marines, I reference the report’s disturbing finding that the VA denies services to Marines far more than it does Airmen. My personal observations in the note were largely based on what I’d observed over time in Leatherneck Lifestyle (The Underground), a Facebook group whose members are Marines or, as in my case, a civilian who’s been really grateful for them ever since some really scary days in West Africa when I was a little kid. This photo of Facebook data from 16 May 2018 confirms my membership in the closed group. But the full set of records received from Facebook a year later, on 11 May 2019, confirms the reason that I can’t learn from those Marines now: soon after 276 of them and their supporters found another one of my posts useful, I was yanked from their group. And all evidence of my ever being a member vanished. This is the same Facebook data set that falsely reports that I stopped following aggressive, leftist, anti-American pages from groups that i never knew existed and if I had, almost certainly would never have visited them – UNLESS I could use the angry left’s pages to learn more about the extreme left alliance that wants an innocent, patriotic American woman in Tucson dead.

ORIGINAL RESEARCHER NOTE: By far more than anyone else, United States Marines and their supporters have reacted to and commented on this solemn, snow-shrouded image that I posted on Facebook mere hours ago. It’s an anecdotal truth for this author that those in and around the USMC are quick, respectful, and openly compassionate when it comes to honoring the noble dead. Collectively, the kind of fight that our Marines take to America’s enemies is a lot different than that we ask of our airmen. So, why: The VA has effectively decided that Marines are more than five times more “Dishonorable” than Airmen.

Here’s an excerpt from the March 2016 report as accessed online 21 December 2018:

Complete report available at:

https://www.swords-to-plowshares.org/2016/03/30/underserved/

Not all who have served are “veterans” in the eyes of the Department of Veterans Affairs. If the veteran has less than a General discharge, the VA creates obstacles to getting health care, benefits, homeless resources and other services. Most of these veterans are simply turned away. Congress never meant for eligibility to be so exclusive, it intended that only veterans who served dishonorably be denied access. The VA’s own discretionary policies unnecessarily deny hundreds of thousands veterans benefits, who are often those most in need of the VA’s support. These former service members are more likely to have mental health disabilities and twice as likely to commit suicide. They are more likely to be homeless and to be involved with the criminal justice system.

KEY FINDINGS FROM THE REPORT

  • Marines are nearly ten times more likely to be excluded from VA services than their counterparts in the Air Force
  • Current era service members are excluded at higher rates than other eras– more than twice the rate for Vietnam Era veterans and nearly four times the rate for World War II Era veterans
  • Mental health and combat have little effect on eligibility
  • 3 out of 4 veterans with bad-paper discharges who served in combat and who have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder are denied eligibility by the Board of Veterans’ Appeals

.  .  .

(Excerpted from p. 12 and following)

VA Regulations Result in Unequal Exclusion Rates Between Branches

The historically unprecedented exclusion rate today is due almost enti rely to the VA’s discretionary choice to presume ineligibility for veterans who received administrative Other Than Honorable discharges.

That choice deprives tens of thousands of veterans of needed care, despite the fact that their service would not be considered “Dishonorable”—and was not deemed Dishonorable by the military. What is more, significant disparities exist among the administrative separati on practices of the various service branches. The Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps each has its own separation regulations and policies. Moreover, within each branch, different units and commands may implement those regulations and policies in a different manner. Thus, service members who engage in similar misconduct may receive disparate treatment: one may be retained, another may be discharged under General conditions, another discharged under Other Than Honorable conditions.

This is due to different leadership styles, not differences in degrees of “dishonor.” A report of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) on discharge characterization documented the range of discharge practices and ascribed disparities to differences in leadership and management styles rather than a measurable difference in “honor” or “character.” The GAO compared Marines and Airmen with the same misconduct, service length, and performance history, and found that the Air Force was thirteen times more likely to give a discharge Under Honorable conditions than the Marine Corps.

Because the VA presumptively excludes veterans with non-punitive Other Than Honorable discharges, this discrepancy results in significant differences in VA eligibility. For service members with equivalent conduct histories, Airmen are 13 times more likely than Marines to be deemed presumptively eligible—and recognized as a “veteran”—by the VA.

This results in significant differences in aggregate. Whereas 98% of veterans who have served in the Air  Force since 2001 can access the VA when they leave the service, only 88% of Marines from the period are

presumptively recognized as “veterans” by the VA. (See Table K.9). The VA has effectively decided that Marines are more than five times more “Dishonorable” than Airmen.

This disparity provides a potent reminder for why Congress decided to exclude only veterans who received or should have received a Dishonorable discharge by Court-Martial. Although there are wide discrepancies among services in their administrative discharge practices, the service branches are remarkably similar in how they use punitive discharges. Congress specifically noted that the discretion given to commanders for administrative separations can result in unfair outcomes, and gave veterans the benefit of the doubt by only excluding those who received or deserved a Dishonorable discharge by court-martial. Because the VA’s regulations have presumptively excluded all veterans with administrative Other Than Honorable discharges, the VA is failing to act in accordance with Congress’s decision.

Eligibility Decisions Fail To Adequately Consider Mental Health Conditions that May Have Contributed to Discharge.

Overall, the VA’s COD regulations prevent consideration—except in narrow and specifi c circumstances—of facts that Congress intended the VA to take into account: mitigating factors, extenuating circum-

stances, and positive facts. As one example, the VA’s regulations provide little room for consideration of whether any mental health condition explains or mitigates the conduct that led to the veteran’s bad-paper discharge. It is deeply unfair—and contrary to Congress’s intent—to exclude veterans from basic veteran services for behavior that is symptomatic of mental health conditions that may be related to their service.

It is well established that post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), depression, operational stress, and other mental health conditions can lead to behavioral changes. In some cases, military commanders incorrectly attribute those behaviors to bad character, rather than as signs of distress and disease. Indeed, a 2010 study of Marines who deployed to Iraq found that those who were diagnosed with PTSD were eleven times more likely to be discharged for misconduct and eight times more likely to be discharged for substance abuse than Marines without a PTSD diagnosis.

Yet, the VA’s regulati ons contain only one narrow provision related to mental health: misconduct leading to discharge may be overlooked if the veteran was “insane” at the time of the misconduct leading

to discharge. The VA’s definition of “insanity” is antiquated—out of step with the practices of modern psychology and psychiatry, which no longer deem people “insane.” . . .

Eligibility Decisions Do Not Consider Whether the Veteran Served In Combat or Other Hardship Conditions

Another example of the failure of the VA’s regulations is the absence of any generally applicable provision for considering whether the veteran served in hardship conditions, including whether the veteran served in combat. . . .

In a forthcoming article, this author points to another problem facing those with bad paper discharges:

“Veterans with bad paper discharges can get screwed all the way around. Not only are they often – but not always – excluded from VA services and healthcare, they “may be excluded from access to community resources also; many community programs follow the eligibility requirements set by the VA.”

In recent months, some veterans have been given the right to file class action lawsuits against the VA for being denied services due to discharges they say resulted from conduct that’s symptomatic of trauma experienced while doing their military jobs. Here’s an early article about this type of  class certification.

NEW FROM STRIFE BLOG and this author: Part II of Henry: a wounded soldier forgotten by all in an American jail – by all except his brothers who fell beside him in Vietnam

Strife image 397 x 397The former soldier grimaced for just an instant as he lowered himself into a Spartan metal chair opposite mine in this cramped space we shared. A chair like the one he’d lowered himself into for his monitored telephone call with his wife. Their relationship described in Hebrew scriptures as one in which they cling to each other, becoming “one flesh.” Separated here for legitimate security reasons by a thick sheet of glass.  Those of us in “the biz” prefer to call that kind of visit a “no contact visit.” It just sounds a little better than “no human touch.”

Once he was seated, Henry and I greeted each other with mutual respect, but the veteran’s words were narrow and thin. He wore a state court detainee’s bright orange coveralls. But he couldn’t fill them out.

I glanced again at the booking photograph from six months earlier.  And I looked back at this veteran. These couldn’t be the same person. They mustn’t be the same person.

Henry confirmed the basic facts that his wife had given me out in the lobby. He said he’d been arrested before. For the same thing. Henry told me it wasn’t that way before he was sent to Vietnam.

Excerpt from letter to senior DOD official, 21 May 2019, as revised 23 May 2019:

. . [T]here’s nothing funny about planning, staffing, initiating and running a national security psychological warfare operation on a non-combatant American citizen, on U.S. soil.

Christine [] is not, has not been, and never will be disloyal to our country. Rather, Sir, it is those who’ve targeted [her] for destruction who’ve for decades actively undermined the laws of this land and those who are trained and tasked with providing the security for this nation.

Unfortunately, Xxxxxx, the only likely reason that Ms. [] life is now being systematically destroyed with the tools of war is because the same people I just identified are my enemies on several public policy issues, and they’ve been bullet-proof long enough to disrespect the law even more than they did before. [And they know well that I have grown to love Christine profoundly during the 7 years of our friendship. This gives them an especially potent way to send me a message.]

Psychological operations play an especially important part of our nation’s efforts to pursue and protect Anerican interests and those of our allies. Even from what little I’ve learned as I’ve tried to understand what’s been done to Christine and find some way to help her, i can say that our nation’s psychological warfare capacity scares the hell out of me. And that’s what weapons of war should do. 

Christine’s a patriotic, loyal American citizen from a family that brought her up right. And from all I’ve been able to learn, the psychological warfare operation – if that’s what it is – that’s got hold of her has violated state and federal law as well as DOD policy, from the very start.  But as horrific a set of crimes against an innocent victim this appears to be, that doesn’t change the need for America’s warriors to do their jobs as effectively and safely as possible. 

That’s why, except for a brief quote here or there, I’m not sharing chapters from field manuals or any other openly available official publications or documents that divulge how our psychological warriors are trained or how they do their jobs. Instead, here’s a 16- minute video that’s not specific to our national security community’s work but which provides a quick overview of some basic info re capture and manipulation of human beings.

Among parties with motive, means, and opportunity to make bogus report of serious threat posed by Christine Rebecca Korger AKA “The Mockingbird” to the national security of the United States, and requesting that psychological warfare assets be deployed to destroy her, are these folks. But they’re also networked with the right people in the right places to plan, staff, and run an operation like this one appears to be, completely off the books.
