Ted Gunderson has been another obvious internet fake. This entry is kind of painful to put together. The more one searches for the essence of the disinfo octopus, the crazier it gets. Not only is there a dearth of credible sources, the good ones are easily obfuscated by a mountain of deliberately, planted rubbish. Yet, I'll try my best. This will be somewhat of a stream of consciousness as I put together links, screenshots, and even a run through memory lane in regards to the McMartin Preschool hysteria.
Ted Gunderson used to be an FBI Special Agent in charge of 700 employees and a $22.5 million budget. Here's his resume.
For those unaware of cointelpro, here are a few excerpts from Brian Glick's War At Home.
Government harassment of U.S. political activists clearly exists today, violating our fundamental democratic rights and creating a climate of fear and distrust which undermines our efforts to challenge official policy. Similar attacks on social justice movements came to light during the 1960s. Only years later did we learn that these had been merely the visible tip of an iceberg. Largely hidden at the time was a vast government program to neutralize domestic political opposition through "covert action" (political repression carried out secretly or under the guise of legitimate law enforcement).
The 1960s program, coordinated by the FBI under the code name "COINTELPRO," was exposed in the 1970s and supposedly stopped. But covert operations against domestic dissidents did not end. They have persisted and become an integral part of government activity. ...
Domestic Covert Action Did Not End in the 1970s
... While domestic covert operations were scaled down once the 1960s upsurge had subsided (thanks in part to the success of COINTELPRO), they did not stop. In its April 27, 1971 directives disbanding COINTELPRO, the FBI provided for future covert action to continue "with tight procedures to ensure absolute security." ...
Here's the thing about Teddy. He has gravitas from his resume. As an old man, he has the plausible deniability of being internet illiterate. His chief critics have zero credibility. They include crazies such as Stew Webb, Barbara Hartwell, Kate JoAnne Dixon, and Virginia McCullough. His apparent prime ally happens to be Ken Adachi of the completely ludicrous website named Educate-yourself.org. The spin can be that a respected, retired, FBI man has been unduly smeared by obvious disinfo dispensers and insidiously used by others falsely promoting him as their associate.
One of the biggest pieces of "evidence" used to discredit Teddy has come from his old website now only available through archive.org. Check out below the third and fourth line in the second paragraph.
Underground alien-controlled facilities?
I heard through the grapevine that Ted had nothing to do with that website, that he is indeed somewhat computer illiterate. There's that plausible deniability again. To be honest, I can't find anything that ties Ted to the crazy notion that aliens exist and are involved in a global conspiracy.
People can easily check out what Gunderson got into after "leaving" the FBI. He became an investigator. He worked for the green beret doctor found guilty of killing his family, the one who spinned it as being the work of some Charles Manson type cult. I remember reading Fatal Vision. Let me put it this way. I'd believe OJ Simpson was innocent before ever considering Jeffrey MacDonald was.
Teddy Gunderson pimped the idea that MacDonald was wrongly accused. This was the start of Ted's post-FBI cottage industry. He basically believes we are under the control of a satanic illuminati.
Is Ted Gunderson for real? We now know Hal Turner has been putting on an act for years as an agent provocateur. The million dollar question is whether Ted Gunderson has been in the thick of a major psychological operation, or if he is a real life version of Colonel Kurtz.
The analogy would be that perhaps Gunderson was a good man who at some point went off the deep end into insanity. I'm not saying Gunderson has ever been involved in murder.
The problem with that is Gunderson can be directly tied to the Willis Carto network of right woos left. Perhaps his website was in the hands of folks trying to discredit him.
Here are the links that were up on his website.
Here is the beginning of one story TedGunderson.com published. It was taken from The American Free Press, a Willis Carto publication.
Nonetheless, it is moot whether or not insidious individuals infiltrated TedGunderson.com. Gunderson can be directly tied to Willis Carto and his anti-semitic disinformation network. Even if Gunderson can feign ignorance about the website that was put out in his name, he probably won't deny having been in attendence at the 2006 American Free Press/Barnes Review Conference titled Authentic History And The First Amendment.
From TedGunderson.com, one can see that he spoke at one of the events, though I'm not sure during which year.

I can't buy that Ted Gunderson has been anything other than part and parcel of a convoluted, controlled, oppositional script. I believe he became the perfect candidate to give credibility to a satanic psychological operation that swept our nation and resulted in innocent people going to prison. Here's a clip of Ted's appearance on the Geraldo Rivero Show. One thing I noticed is how he would roll his eyes back and forth. I am no body sign expert, but my guess is those were tells showing he was well aware of being full of it.
Now before anyone jumps the gun and says so what if Ted became part of the Patriot Movement and was at a Willis Carto sponsored event. They may say I am dabbling in McCarthyite smears by association. They could say the alien thing was planted to make him look extra kooky. Well, here's another youtube video the good readers might want to view. Here Ted Gunderson was working side by side with alleged MK ULTRA victims Barbara Hartwell and Brice Taylor. The other dude sitting next to Ted is an alleged ex-operative named Chip Tatum.
Oh yeah, Ted Gunderson is soooo believable. Not!!!!!
Run For The Hills. It's Bob Hope!!!
Brice Taylor says she was owned by Bob Hope. Oh my fricken God. Give me a break.
You know, I loves me some crazies as much as the next guy, and this Brice lady is kind of cute, but that's just a bit too nutty for my taste.

The McMartin Preschool Tragedy
I'm actually burnt out at this point and would simply like to add some links concerning the McMartin story along with some related links. Folks are encouraged to check it out for themselves. The first link will take folks to a thread started by Jackie McGauley. She's a parent of one of the children alleged to have been abused. She used to live with Gunderson. Hmmm. Now she apparently despises the man. Curiously enough, she owns the rights to the archaeological dig report she claims proves there were underground tunnels.
