Political Poisonings: A Continuing American Tradition?

by Deborah Baker Friday, May. 15, 2009 at 12:56 PM

I am an American seeking asylum in Europe because I have been poisoned, apparently for political reasons. It seems the US government has experience with this punishment for political opponents, but worse things may be in store for the masses.

Are you aware that there are concentration camps meant to incarcerate and kill Americans in the US? If not, check it out. For example, youtube.com has had videos of these camps including the most infamous one in Beech Grove, Indiana. Ted Gunderson, former chief of the FBI office in LA, says he got one list of people to be killed in such camps from someone in the CIA, and his name was on it! If you aren't already tangled up in the current mess that exists in the US, you will be! But let me first tell you my story. Maybe we can come up with an alternative.

I am an American and was a political activist in the US, especially after 9/11. I have been seeking political asylum in Europe since 2006, when I left the US because I was being poisoned.

I guess what worried the powers-that-be were my math skills. First, I worried aloud that some people in the US government seemed to have facilitated the 9/11 attacks. Then I found out an illegal activity was taking place at a nearby nuclear energy facility. Because of the nature of this activity (which I don't want to promote), it could easily have been blamed on "terrorists", when in fact it was taking place in the heart of a facility monitored by the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The first day I was poisoned (Nov. 15, 2005) was a day I had scheduled anti-nuclear activist Helen Caldicott to speak in Columbus, Ohio, my hometown. (Unfortunately, as soon as I booked two venues for Dr. Caldicott, she cancelled.) When I finally found a doctor who would deal with my poisoning, we found I had toxic levels of carcinogenic materials used in the nuclear industry, including uranium, strontium, cadmium and nickel. But the good doctor then said she wouldn't take me as a patient, and that's when I left the US.

I first sought asylum in Switzerland. That was a mistake, since the Swiss government is even more beholden to the powers-that-be than is the US, if that's possible! Let's say it's these powers who control the world's money--the money supply, its value, etc. (In 1933, Congressman Louis McFadden, a former banker, tried to impeach Federal Reserve and Treasury Department officials for causing the Great Depression. After surviving two assassination attempts, he died suddenly in 1936. More recently, numerous organizations and officials, including a governor of the Federal Reserve Board appointed by the government, Edward Gramlich, saw that the many mortgages banks were giving out to people who didn't qualify for them was something the Federal Reserve should rein in, but despite their warnings and pleas to the Federal Reserve, Fed chairman Alan Greenspan allowed the lending to continue until it turned into an international crisis. That led to bank bankrupcies and mergers, resulting in an even more concentrated banking system, and governments forking out money to banks BECAUSE they were irresponsible.)

So it shouldn't have been surprising that Switzerland rejected my claim for asylum. One of the reasons they gave for doing so was that I hadn't submitted any Swiss medical reports on the state of my health. In fact, none of my Swiss doctors tested me for poisoning, even though I continually asked for such tests, showing the letter from the asylum commission requesting Swiss test results. It was only after my claim for asylum was rejected that a doctor agreed to test my hair for heavy metals. He took two hair samples: one of hair which grew out of my head before Nov. 2005, the other from hair which grew out of my head during 2006, the year I spent in Switzerland. The test results showed that I had no heavy metal poisoning before Nov. 2005, and I had more toxic poisoning after my year in Switzerland than I had when I left the US. This means the toxic levels of heavy metals in my hair did not come from the environment, that is, from outside of my body. If it had, all of my hair would have shown the same levels of heavy metals. It also proved I continued to be posioned in Switzerland.

In 2007, I came to France to seek asylum. France has also rejected my claim, and France also refuses to give me information which would prove my case. For example, I sent several UNOPENED, apparently factory sealed food and (alternative) medicine samples to a lab to be tested. The lab received the samples and began testing them, then abruptly stopped communicating with me. I have never received the results, despite my repeated letters, faxes, and phone calls to the lab.

Unfortunately for me, the pro-Bush Nicolas Sarkozy was elected French president soon after I entered France. I have contacted the new US administration with my story, but have not yet received a reply. In fact, I don't believe the US administration is responsible for my poisoning. I believe the CIA is probably responsible for it, and the CIA is not actually under presidential or congressional authority. Bureaucratically the CIA is under the executive branch, but thanks to numerous presidential National Security Directives over the years which remain secret, the CIA has become virtually independent of civilian governmental authority. (As an example fo this, lawyer Mark Lane, defending a claim made by the former Libertarian magazine "Spotlight", proved in court that CIA employee E. Howard Hunt, among others, was involved in JFK's assassination.)

Douglas Valentine has written several books on the CIA. In "The Phoenix Program", he claims that during the Congressional investigations in the 1970s into alleged CIA abuses, CIA Director George HW Bush's point man for the congressional committees warned them (here I quote the book, p. 428), "Back off or face martial law." Researching further into this claim, it seems that if the House's Pike Committee in particular (which the CIA found to be more troublesome than the Senate's Church Committee) exposed the CIA's secrets, the civilian CIA would be abolished, but its powers would pass to the military, setting the stage for a military government or dictatorship. I guess the Pike Committee wasn't told what would happen if the CIA were allowed to continue operating as it had been. I believe the future scenario remains the same either way. See http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=9803227. An interesting if old article on the CIA, American journalists, and the Church Committee is at http://www.carlbernstein.com/magazine_cia_and_media.php. (By the way, at this point, I am sad to say, though I do not suggest that Mr. Valentine has changed sides, I think he has more likely been threatened to the extent that he is no longer a good source of political non-fiction.)

I have contacted many journalists in Europe about my story, and though some are interested in learning more, they cease communicating with me and never cover the story. Finally I printed fliers I wrote myself and distributed them.

I am not the only person being poisoned right now, and other Americans I suspect may have been poisoned for political reasons include Mike Ruppert, James Earl Ray, Aaron Russo, and Johnathan Kwitny. Ted Gunderson also says his closest associate was poisoned recently with uranium. Another American who is currently suffering because of her math skills is Elsebeth Baumgartner, a former northern Ohio lawyer and microbiologist sentenced to prison after 1) proving to be a caustic government critic and 2) informing officials that sensitive biotechnologies have been stolen that could harm the public if in the wrong hands.

The next question would be: who or what is the CIA working for? But let's go one step at a time. I have always been a very honest person. I have a BA and an MA in Politics from New York University, where I was a teaching assistant. I am not inventing this or even exaggerating--in fact, just the opposite. Let's establish these facts before going further.

Thanks for your interest.
