How Government Agents Neutralize Liberty Activism



A guide to dealing with government shills in the freedom movement, and the common strategies of infiltration. How Government agents distract human rights activists from defending freedom.

The FBI COINTELPRO program was initiated in 1956. COINTELPRO is an acronym for Counter Intelligence program. Google the term COINTELPRO and you will find hundreds of web pages from all different types of political perspectives.

Here is one recommended site:

Liberty activists made a serious mistake by ignoring the creation of COINTELPRO, and by not resisting the illegal and treacherous tactics that were used. Even before 911 it was possible to convince people that our security required that we allow the FBI to "cut corners" for the "good of America". At that time the FBI seemed to be defending liberty rather than suppressing dissent. While COINTELPRO was allegedly terminated in 1971, FOIA requests have shown that COINTELPRO still exists, and is even more aggressive that ever. At one time COINTELPRO was only used against those who worked for tyranny.

We now have secret police, regular troopers and federal authorities targeting people who support the constitution that they swore an oath to uphold and protect.

Brutality against those who exercise constitutional rights is becoming very common:



If you will study nothing more than the old tactics used by the original FBI COINTELPRO program, you will immediately recognize the same pattern that is now being used by the new DHS COINTELPRO.

What was originally called a burglary is now called a "sneak and peek search".


Take note of the following paragraph:

"The FBI COINTELPRO program was initiated in 1956. Its purpose, as
described later by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, was "to expose, disrupt,
misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize activities" of those
individuals and organizations whose ideas or goals he opposed. Tactics
included: falsely labeling individuals as informants; infiltrating groups
with persons instructed to disrupt the group; sending anonymous or forged
letters designed to promote strife between groups; initiating politically
motivated IRS investigations; carrying out burglaries of offices and
unlawful wiretaps; and disseminating to other government agencies and to
the media unlawfully obtained derogatory information on individuals and

If you understand the meaning of the tactic "to expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize activities" you will understand that the person who is most likely of being a Fed, is the one who involves human rights activists in activities that have no effect on those who are building tyranny, and activities that will destroy the credibility of the human rights activists.

Misdirecting activities involves the goal of actually taking over the leadership. Taking over the leadership is the highest priority. Beware of new comers who volunteer to lead. Also understand that often those, who are working for intelligence agencies, do not even know who it is, for whom they are working. Disrupting only becomes the goal when there is a failure to take over the leadership. These two goals are summarized as "rule or ruin".

Misdirecting activities is a fairly simple thing in organizations that put their agenda up for a vote. Infiltrators simply present alternative agendas until they have the organization bogged down with foolishness.
By law, political parties, and political candidates, are regulated by the Federal Election Commission. Political parties operate according to parliamentary procedure; and therefore do not have a fixed body of principles. Political party platforms come up for a VOTE.

Federal Election Commission (which means the whole federal government) has access to everything that we do INSIDE OF A PARTY, and they dictate how we will do it. Political parties are an easy target for control by government shills, and most of the government shills will have extensive experience working inside of a political party.

Central control is the strength of our adversaries. Grass roots organizing is our strength. If we stay organized at the local level then they cannot take us over from the top.
Unlimited Access- an FBI Agent Inside the Clinton White House (Hardcover) by Gary Aldrich

Imagine two armies facing each other: One is commanded by a General; the other is run by a steering committee.
In the army is that is commanded by a General, the General gives the order to CHARGE, AND THE ARMY GOES INTO A CHARGE.
In the army that is run by a steering committee, the Chairman of the steering committee says "I move that we load our weapons, Is there a second to that motion?"
Everyone except one infiltrator says "I second that motion!"
The Chairman of the steering committee says "Is there any discussion?"
Everyone except one infiltrator says "Sir, we had better start shooting back. At the rate that they are killing us, very soon we will not have a quorum!"
The one infiltrator says "Point of order sir: We cannot vote on a motion to start shooting back, while we still have a motion on the floor to load our weapons."

If an organization does not operate according to parliamentary procedure the infiltrators will attempt to change that. If the leadership understands this tactic they will decline to make this change. The infiltrator will then move on to creating dissension among the members over this, and over any other issue that they can raise.

Misdirecting activities by presenting alternative agendas usually involves promoting hoaxes. Those who are building tyranny would love to convince people that we are all
a bunch of paranoid nuts, so that we will we unable to warn people about the building of tyranny. Those who are building tyranny would be more capable of convincing people that we are paranoid nuts, if they could convince a segment of the human rights activists to run around telling people that the clouds, and the street signs, are out to get us.

Effective organizations have a fixed permanent agenda. Members vote for that agenda by joining the group. Anyone who wishes to vote against that agenda does so by leaving the group.

If you understand the meaning of the tactic "infiltrating groups with persons instructed to disrupt the group; sending anonymous or forged letters designed to promote strife between groups" THEN you will know that a myriad of personal attacks and whisper campaigns is a part of the COINTELPRO program. Only the accusation that cannot withstand a demand for evidence will be whispered behind the back of the accused.

Often an article such as this is an effective way of "smoking out" the government shill. If there is a government shill reading this we invite you to identify yourself with your usual tactics of ridicule, innuendo, and personal attacks.

Those who would like to identify government shills might want to take note of who it is who objects to the distribution of this article. It would be safe to conclude that if one were to throw a rock into a pen full of pigs, and one of them squealed, that the one that had squealed, would be the one that you had hit. No one's name is mentioned here, but sometimes there will be someone who will claim that this is an accurate description of themselves. In that case we might agree with them.

"There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root." --- Henry David Thoreau

Imagine living in a nation where arsonists set fires everyday. The best fire department in the world cannot save this nation without stopping the arsonists from setting the fires. There is a massive propaganda campaign urging that we should only work on putting out the fires, but do nothing about the arsonists. Is this simple stupidity, or is this massive propaganda campaign the work of the arsonists?

More detail on TACTICS

Creating Strife Among Human Rights Activists

It is VERY simple: Those who spend their time fighting tyranny, are human rights activists. Those who spend their time fighting human rights activists are working for the advancement of tyranny. We learn who the most effective human rights activists are, by seeing who the government shills attack. We learn who the government shills are, by seeing who attacks the most effective human rights activists. This would be a consistently reliable way of identifying government shills except for the fact that government shills are incredibly clever at deceiving others into doing their dirty work.

After the initiation of hostility the infiltrator expects one of two reactions:
1) Appeasement
2) Resistance

Appeasement leads to the accomplishment of the primary objective of taking control.

Resistance leads to the accomplishment of the secondary objective of creating strife.

The only effective response to the initiation of hostility is to restructure all activities so as to avoid the person who is creating the strife. SWAT THE FLY, AND MOVE ON.
Ignore the initiation of strife, and go back to defending liberty.

Deceiving Human Rights Activists into Supporting Hoaxes

We can defend freedom, or we can fall for hoaxes. We cannot do both.
There is a presence, in the freedom movement, of persons who attempt to distract human rights activists away from defending liberty, by seducing them into all sorts of silly programs; which would ultimately waste resources, make them appear to be foolish,
and cause them to lose credibility.

This includes claims that the vapor trails; that jets always leave, are a plot to poison us.
This includes claims that the stickers, placed on the back of road signs by manufacturers, are some sort of trail blazing for a future enemy army.
This even includes a propaganda blitz to BAN WATER, by using its scary sounding chemical name: Dihydrogen Monoxide
Very few people will actually fall for the "tin foil hat" hoax, but this is used as a "straw man" fallacy to ridicule those who expose the real dangers to liberty.

Deceiving Human Rights Activists into Creating Class Struggle
by Promoting Ethnic Hatred.
The conspiracy, that we fight, is NOT a group of religious people. They believe in NOTHING else except power, and money, for themselves. The theory that they work for the benefit of a religion, or a nation, or a race, ascribes to them a self sacrificing characteristic; which they do not have. When they are in power, they persecute religious people of all faiths. Neither virtue nor sin is hereditary. There are good and bad in all kinds.

The problem is, that in order to have credibility you MUST be consistently right. Slanting everything so that it always comes up ethnic, just discredits the rest of your information. If there is one cockroach in the sugar bowl most people will throw out the whole bowl of sugar.
There are people of all ethnicities who want to be free, and are working to oppose tyranny. There are people of all ethnicities who want to be dictators, and are working to oppose freedom.

Mark 3 : King James Version (KJV)
24 And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
25 And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.

Quo Bono? Who benefits when patriotism is perverted into hatred of minorities?
The effect is to neutralize patriotic enthusiasm by turning it into hatred of other victims of tyranny. How does that effect the defense of liberty? The conspirators who would destroy liberty actually "kill two birds with one
stone" by fueling such disinformation:

1. The OBVIOUS effect is to dispense with the opposition to tyranny, by diverting the efforts of the patriots toward a "decoy". If the disinformation is successful, the person who would have ordinarily been opposing real criminal conspirators, now makes himself busy, trying to destroy the life of some little cobbler, or tailor, or of some innocent children at play.

2. Perhaps an even more important function is the creation of class struggle. When a nation goes to war against ITSELF anyone can take it over. One expert on this sort of attack, Mao Tse Dung, summed it up quite well: "The stronghold is broken easily from the INSIDE". Divide and conquer is a VERY OLD trick. "If your enemy is stronger divide him." -Sun Tzu

For details about this strategy, read the Communist Manifesto

Attempting to Waste the Time of Human Rights Activists

The primary methods for wasting the time of human rights activists is by forcing them to respond to personal attacks, whisper campaigns, and by endless debate about trivia or hoaxes.
Endless debate about trivia or hoaxes is extremely easy to accomplish in organizations which vote on their agenda. Wasting the time of human rights activists is often accomplished automatically by the pursuit of the other goals that are discussed above as described by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover: "to expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize activities".
The only solution is to just set the distractions of infiltrators aside, and go back to work opposing tyranny. In this way neutralizers do not waste the time of freedom activists. Just dispense with them, with a standard response. Reviewing this article is an effective standard response. Understanding who is really doing this will help immensely:

Thank you for posting.

Also, David Ray Griffin has a relatively new book out on the topic called "Cognitive Infiltration" where Obama "luminary" Cass Sunstein penned the phrase "cognitive infiltration" in a paper he wrote suggesting that government actors infiltrate and attempt to neutralize the 9-11 Truth Movement.

Interesting read...

Norfolk, VA

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

FYI Recent change in screen name:

FBI_Exposer = Spirit of '76

Another member Spirit of '76(formerly FBI_Exposer) changes a screen name after I call him out for intentionally marginalizing hoax/actor theories?

How y'all in military intelligence doing today? Hope you are having a good one.

cointelpro agents are easy to spot...no worries I got this

Just look for the dumbest grease bag and then picture him as an accountant with a gun...if you can picture it good chance he's from the government and here to help.

Then when you hear anybody talking about committing violent acts tackle them and tie them up. Wait for a while the guys in the van will be in shortly to pick up their agent. Most likely with their weapons drawn and ready to charge everyone with being too smart for them.

Don't tell me the FBI is

Don't tell me the FBI is targeting law abiding American citizens now too. Is there any Federal Government agency we can feel safe from at this point?

Hello FBI_Exposer... how's it going?

"Misdirecting activities by presenting alternative agendas usually involves promoting hoaxes. Those who are building tyranny would love to convince people that we are all a bunch of paranoid nuts, so that we will we unable to warn people about the building of tyranny. Those who are building tyranny would be more capable of convincing people that we are paranoid nuts, if they could convince a segment of the human rights activists to run around telling people that the clouds, and the street signs, are out to get us."

Choice words you use..Hoax theories hit a little too close to home?

And quite a long post don't you think? A deluge of info I would say. Makes it seem like you put a lot of time and thought into the post. At least on the surface. Anyways have a good day FBI_Exposer sir....

they have chased off a LOT of good members.

911 seems to be one of their favorite subjects.
it can also be difficult to tell them from passionate new members.
I have learned to only be abrasive over technical subjects.

the younger generation are much more connected, they know how to use the tools & utilities, making use of advancement in communication technologies.

Just an observation...

Have you noticed that not one of the new (yellow, pink etc.) members are commenting on this. Could it be that they are busy writing in their older( blue green purple) member names now? Valid point or just paranoia?


I am replying just so I can see what color I am :)


I am just curious...

I am just curious why you and Temeculapatriot (who commented 16 minuets after you) commented on my comment that was 2 years old?
You had to really dig to find it.It would be hard for me to find it and I made the comment. Are you that lonely, or are you just trying hard to draw attention to yourself as troll working for a 3 letter agency? Playing stupid is one thing, but not being smart enough to pull it off is another. My comment was made before both of you (if you aren't the same person) were even members of DP.

Is anyone here on DP getting strange comments like this on your old comments? We need a much better filtering system here.


I didn't even notice the date of your comment or the date of

the original post. I saw the title of the post at the side of my screen and clicked on it. I didn't bother to read all of the text of the super long post but I was reading the comments. When I got to your comment it made me wonder what color my comments end up being when I post them...I never really bother to notice. So, I made a comment. You will have to ask the other ID you mentioned why they clicked on the comment. I haven't replied to them because I did not see a need to do so.

Going back now and reading the comments above yours, it looks like someone named Chris Cudnoski said that this post needed to be "reborn." So I suppose that is why it came up under Active Forum Topics. I have now idea why that ID decided to "rebirth" this topic.

As far as me being associated with a 3 letter agency, the only thing I can think of is FBC which is First Baptist Church. My husband is a Pastor and I only found Ron Paul about a year before the 2012 elections. Unfortunately, I am a late comer. I wish I had understood what I understand now and had been on board in 2008, but I was only starting to wake up then. As far as me being lonely, it was lonely to be the only person in my house waking up. Now though, my husband is aware as well.

I have spent my whole voting life "hoodwinked." And for that I am grieved as I am 50 now. So for the last 30 years I have voted straight ticket republican because I though the republicans were the "good guys" since I am a social conservative. I understand now though that that is just a ploy by a single party system to give an appearance of choice. I also understand now how social conservatism is used to steal liberty at the federal level.

OK, I have told you more than you have asked. But I will tell you this as well. I am a nice person and I have learned just about all I know about Liberty here at the Daily Paul. If it had not been for this site, that last paragraph couldn't have been written by me. I still have very much to learn...afterall, I am a pinky :)

PS I pulled this up to edit some typos and thought of another 3 letter agency: VBS. I was there tonight. It stands for Vacation Bible School. I worked with 5th and 6th graders as well as in the nursery. If I think of any more 3 letter agencies, I'll let you know. Oops, just thought of another: CCA. Oh, and MOM, SIS...My middle name is ANN, does that count?


I like how you comment, bear :)

The only terminology I can think to describe it would be, simply, "innocent and honest."
