The Most Revolutionary Act: Memoir of an American Refugee describes how FBI harassment led a 54 year old psychiatrist, single mother activist, to close my 25 year Seattle practice to begin a new life in New Zealand. It begins by describing the fifteen years of covert harassment I experienced when I used my financial and social position, as a doctor, to assist two former Black Panthers who had occupied an abandoned school to transform it into an African American Museum. What began as unrelenting phone harassment and illegal break-ins, progressed to six attempts on my life and an affair with an undercover agent who railroaded me into a psychiatric hospital.

My main motivation for writing the book was the murder of a black postal worker and union activist named Oscar Manassa. The US government comes down hard on dissidents, whistleblowers and activists. As I recount in my memoir, Oscar also experienced extensive covert harassment prior to his brutal murder. Moreover immediately following his death, the US Postal Inspectors (an intelligence arm of the federal government blocked a homicide investigation by seizing the evidence file from the Seattle police.

The whole experience was a personal epiphany, leading to the frightening discovery that the democratic institutions of power have been taken over by an invisible shadow government.

At the beginning of 1987, I was a naïve hard working private psychiatrist concerned with growing joblessness and homelessness in Seattle’s African American community. By the end of the year, I had been intimately acquainted with America’s shadow government and the criminal activities US intelligence is notorious for – illegal narcotics trafficking, arms dealing, money laundering and covert assassinations of foreign and domestic leaders and activists.

My personal experiences would eerily foreshadow the burgeoning of the US intelligence state after 9-11. Any activist over fifty will tell you that the US government has targeted dissidents, whistleblowers and activists as far back as World War I with illegal wire taps, surveillance, break-ins, indefinite detention and extrajudicial assassination. Ironically all these previously illegal activities are totally legal under The Patriot act and the National Defense Authorization Act.

The Most Revolutionary Act won a 2011 Allbooks Review Editor’s Choice award.

Dr Bramhall on radio:

Jim and I discuss the Arab Spring, the recent takeover of the State Capitol in Madison Wisconsin, left gatekeeping foundations, and how the destruction of the middle class will hasten revolutionary change.

We talk about the New Zealand political climate, the 911 Truth Movement and Noam Chomsky’s puzzling stance that there was no US government involvement in either 911 or the JFK assassination. We also discuss the role of insurance lobby and Big Pharma in blocking the establishment of universal single payer health care in the US, as well as Climategate and the BP oil spill. Finally we discuss my involvement with Seattle’s African American Museum and the resulting government harassment that I describe in The Most Revolutionary Act. I talk about the murder of a postal worker named Oscar Manassa and the rip-off of the federal worker compensation program to fund the Contra war against Nicaragua.

E.G. and I talk about my harassment by the FBI and my decision to emigrate to New Zealand. We also discuss the demise of child psychiatry in the US – owing to the unwillingness of private insurance companies to cover mental health services for children and adolescents. And the failure of Obamacare to address this serious issue and the need for the US to create a true national health care system. We finished with a lengthy discussion about bullying, a special interest of mine as a child and adolescent psychiatrist.

Chris and I discuss how I was first targeted, following my decision to support the occupation (of an abandoned school)  that led to the formation of Seattle’s first African American Heritage Museum – as an alternative to the crack cocaine epidemic among the city’s African American teenagers. We also talk about my research into HIV AIDS, my hospitalization and the Veterans Administration psychologist I worked with who also helped GIs illegally stationed in Cambodia in the sixties and seventies (and terrorized into keeping quiet about it).

Rob and I discuss the phone harassment, break-ins, attempts to run me down – and my psychiatric hospitalization. We also talk about the political activities that seemed to lead the government to target me – including my research into HIV AIDS – and my inability to get help from the Seattle police. Then we cover the whole area of conspiracies in general, which are more accurately called State Crimes Against Democracy (SCADS)

  3. Thank!. I’ll be sure to read it. Don’t worry about searching for your comment.

    Re. psych drugs: yes, they are the evil intersection of profit and behavior control, but this could not have developed without a premise of pathology that is rooted in class, race, and gender bias. When one considers the blatant political basis of, say, the number of Black boys diagnosed with ‘Oppositional Defiance Disorder” (a route straight to Special Ed, crude behavior modification techniques, and prison) or sexually abused girls given the incredibly deadly label of “Borderline Personality Disorder” , the rehabilitation here in the U.S of electroshock therapy, the lack of a proven biological basis of most diagnosis, and the recent utterly ignorant conflation of “crazy” people with mass shootings, it’s clear that the last group to gain a few civil rights in America is going to be the first to lose them.
    Sorry for the rant, and thanks for allowing me to get on my soap box. I’m really glad to hear that things are different on your side of the planet – and that you and your comrades are there in the trenches. You guys are my favorite kind of class traitors: you have the credibility that’s impossible for your corrupt peers and colleagues here in the APA to dismiss (it must really drive them crazy heh heh)

  5. Dr. Bramhall,
    I’ve just read your article at Dissident Voice – http://dissidentvoice.org/2014/01/population-and-sustainability-addressing-the-taboo/ . In it, you give the USA and New Zealand total fertility rates as 2.6, and the French one as 2.8. But, if you follow your links, you’ll find they are 2.06 and 2.08 respectively. I hope you’ll agree this makes a world of difference in terms of population growth – the actual figures are more or less at replacement level, rather than far above it. Does some of your article need to be rewritten in light of this?

  6. Just found your site having read your article in Veterans Today, re Syria.
    Just one clarification – the British Government didn’t vote against bombing because they knew about Wesley Clark’s admission: they knew all about the plans for themselves (see ‘Dumas, “Top British Officials Confessed to Syria War Plans Two Years before Arab Spring” – http://nsnbc.me/2013/06/16/dumas-top-british-officials-confessed-to-syria-war-plans-two-years-before-arab-spring/ ) – unfortunately they were up to their necks in it. But for whatever reason, thank God the Leader of the Opposition, Ed Miliband, fought the rush to bomb (and got a roasting from a lot of the MSM for his brave stand).

    When I have more time, I will put some of your stuff up on our UK 9/11 Forum ( http://www.911forum.org.uk/ ); looks like you’ve made a very good site – keep up the good work. !A Luta Continua! as the Timorese would say (I campaigned for them for years).

  10. Would you recommend any other country over New Zealand for those seeking political asylum from the United States? Specifically those who worked for the US federal government and then the federal government turned on them?

      • I have looked at Ecuador and Iceland, I was somewhat surprised to see a dissident in NZ because they are a member of the “Five Eyes Alliance” with the United States. But upon further examination there are such instances were the other anglophone countries do permit American dissidents. I however am in a position much different than Assange or Snowden, I was targeted because of things I said and complaints I filed. Even though there might be a warrant issued were I to leave the US (because of them forcing me onto probation) I highly doubt they would try to extradite me, because in all honesty they don’t really want me here… they don’t want to punish me, and they’d probably welcome having me out of their hair. Problem is they are trying to make my probation very hard and controlled and I do not want to tolerate it… They are trying to force me to move from NY to TX away from all my family and friends where I have no support. Also to live down in TX which is essentially a fascist state is not something I think would benefit me.

        So I am open to more options because of the fact they probably won’t try to extradite me. I am more concerned about a country willing to accept me based on a political asylum claim.

  11. I’m lucky to have been granted NZ residency based on a skills shortage (I’m a doctor), so I didn’t have to apply for asylum. I’m a bit skeptical about Iceland owing to their refusal to grant Edward Snowden refugee status.

    • I agree Ecuador seems to be a good bet. Iceland now has some right leaning USA friendly politicians in power but their are still a large number politicians there sympathetic to him, but they don’t want to handle Snowden because he is such a political “hot potato”, I however am not. If the feds found out I left they would probably issue a warrant but I doubt they would try going through the trouble of extradition, because even if they got me back the legal struggle would ensue and it would only draw attention to the fact that they pressured my ex-girlfriend into filing false charges and framed me for 7 felonies just to give me deferred adjudication and 2 years probation.

      I’m no doctor of course, I have a BA in business, and stopped short of finishing my masters in criminal justice. I have 8 years experience in investigations and intelligence work for the state and federal government… apart from private security this usually isn’t a field countries need to import people for. Though I suppose I could look into starting my own business in a place like Ecuador. Thanks for your input.

  14. Psychiatry uses DSM4 in the way the Holy Inquisition used Maleus Malificorum, according to a European Psychiatrist that I recently found on Youtube. I understand his observation, but friends of mine that work in psychiatry do not. For them it may be harder to understand, because they must make a living from DSM4, Maleus Malificorum, the Holy Inquisition. Nazi’s would also have a hard time to understand that Jews are innocent to the Treaty of Versailles.

    In other words, I was shocked to read your background, after I found this blog in research behind some murders by the Holy Inquisition, that was leaded by the Jesuits since 1542. Psychiatry has not only destroyed several other friends of mine, it is used by the CIA to train murderers and spies using Trauma based mind control, just another word for forced discipline by fear. MK-ultra, Monarch, very well known and published about subjects.

    I don’t judge Miss, I believe the Lord will judge us.
    People do not have the knowledge to judge an one else.
    But I wonder why you may have a interesting articles on murders outside psychiatry, while I see no publications on the horrible corruption that all psychiatry is. If you hadn’t figured that your yet, and your comment above on it hardly covers it, you may be grateful for me explaining it. My background is more like in Theology, and ethics is my approach here.

In early 2012 we both had a problem with OpEd News censoring our articles (by an editor I strongly suspected of intelligence connections). Because Fetzer was an established editor at VT, I went over there instead.

      Needless to say, I won’t be contributing to VT now that they have sacked Fetzer.

  16. Lou, I suspect it is. It has troubled me for quite some time that both Duff and Allen constantly use their intelligence “sources” as evidence for their views without ever elaborating (even anonymously) on what that evidence looks like. If they’re that tied in with US intelligence, I think it’s safe to assume that they’re not as independent as they make out.

    • Thanks, Peter. In the late eighties when I first had these experiences, it was my sense that only the most extreme activists were harassed by the government in this way. Following the enactment of the Patriot Act, it seems to have become commonplace. In that way, the US has become like East Germany or the Soviet Union, where government persecution seems to be the default setting.

  17. Doc,

    Wow, that is too wild. I hadn’t had the time to really look at your “About” page here. I had come around to thank you for your latest “Likes” to my posts. Sometimes I have a bit of a time finding where to do that at. So, I figured putting it here, you would see it. I read “About” you, and all I can say is WOW! I had wondered why you in New Zeland knew intimately so much about America, you could not have gotten the “intimately” part of the information, never living here. Then I was curious as to why you left. I now know. And it is Wow! That is the only way I can express my surprise.

    Damn I am sorry to hear what you have been through. The powers that be are not what the sleepers tend to think. I hope they awaken soon…

    • Thanks, Janet. The intense harassment I experienced was a rare event in 1987 – I only knew a handful of people (mainly whistleblowers) with similar experiences. The sad thing is under the Patriot Act, most of the stuff they did to me is perfectly legal now – it happens routinely both to whistleblowers and activists.

One of my more personally painful book sections was the one I titled “Recycling The Cycle Of Abuse” — it’s about how those who belittle teachers use emotional abuse as a tool to keep them silent.

It directs the head of the National Archives and Records Administration to go back into congressional records to retrieve all prior state applications for a convention. If this makes it to the floor for a vote and is passed/implemented the Congress will find the call is overdue. This is a different scenario then a few years ago and reports that enough states had applied https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/5306/all-info?resultIndex=1
