More Confessions of A Targeted Individual

Never in a million years would I have thought that the path in my life would have led to this. To the life of a targeted individual. Never in a million years did I imagine the man that I had once pledged my life to would even consider the fact of throwing me into a system that, not only makes no sense in its morality, but is also lethal in its ramifications.

My life has never been perfect but whose really has? I grew up in a small city where there were not a lot of opportunities for the youth but my parents made sure that I was well-rounded in many aspects. I can remember how busy I use to be in my teenage years. Track, cheerleading, scholarly clubs, you name it and even though I was not the best of students, I still had the experiences.

We were not rich. I have never, ever had a silverspoon in mouth even though I do joke a lot about being adopted. I swear that I cannot remember how many times I have asked myself and God… “Where are my rich parents?” because the life that I had imagined did not equate to the life that I had. It was quite funny.

The reason that I am writing this is because I would like to be expressive to the point of not being vague about my relationship with my ex-husband who has so unwittingly turned tricks to keep me away from children whom I have raised all of their lives. There was hardly a moment when I was separated from my children even when he and I weren’t together. And now he is trying to pull a fake along with my family and friends to prove hardly nothing outside of the fact that his new family is nothing more than a bunch of dickheads. (Please excuse my french.)

This man came from nothing. And in all honesty, I would have gave him away for free. As a matter of fact, no one on God’s green earth would have convinced me not to. And that is the truth. He claimed to be the son of an ex-secretary of the President of the Liberian government in which could possibly be true but so what. Why was he slumming it if his family was so important? Why did he ask me to marry him for greencard purposes if his family really had it going on like that? Why was he in the streets dealing and spending most of his time trying to be a rap star to no avail if he did not need to? Why was I, at nineteen, pregnant and sleeping on a mattress on the floor in an empty apartment. Folks, the real furniture that he ever had was the furniture that I paid for in the following years. And it was not in Africa, it was not in New Jersey, it was not in New York, but my own simple birthplace in Virginia. And by the way, guess who paid for it. Here is a secret, it wasn’t him.

“We had a family business making bricks,” he said, or, “I’ve got a property in Africa but my aunt who receives the monies will not give me my share.” Really? I mean seriously? Why is your fake so effective now? And even if it is not, baby, you are just like another one of us Americans just trying to make it. Do you not see it you bastard? Does schizophrenia run in your family so deep that you cannot see the difference between the gates of heaven and the fires of hell? Really?

Does he feel that his communists tactics and his lack of loyalty to his real family will get him any further than he is now? Does he feel that turning my own mother against me will win him brownie points? Sorry, but he may be sending the very likeness of him straight to hell. The games may be okay while everyone is watching. It may even be a little impressive as to how they can get over but do not ever count your eggs before they hatch. What’s good for the gander is not always good for the goose if you know what I mean. At some point he will have to reflect on what he has done to jeopardize his childrens’ and my future and by that time, it just might be too late.

Sadly, the only reason why he married me to begin with, as you all know, was for his greencard. He claimed, after the fact, that he was not ready to be a husband and I cannot say that he did not prove that over and over again. The sob stories, the crying, the mercy that he threw at me were endless but I learned that it was just a pawn to keep a roof over his head and money in his pocket. I have signed my name to at least three letters of invite for his family members to come into this country and he thanks me by trying to keep my children from me for what short times he has actually had them. It doesn’t seem quite fair does it? Well, he has never been fair and abusive is just a norm in his personality.

He loves the fact that he can always have one over on me because I have taught him so much. I was his real foundation and he was able to spread his wings because of me. He should be thanking me, not torturing me but, of course, we do have cultural differences. His family would rather abuse and torture rather than to act like real American adults. My question to them would be this. If you did not like the way your culture treated you then why abuse the American’s that helped you get on your feet. You did not like what was going on in your environment as to the reason you came here, so why abuse us? Why are you here? Is it just simply to take advantage of people? Did someone promise you something? If your life was so great wherever you may have come from then why did you flock here to the Americas’s and use us for your own rivivals? Sorry, but I do not think that greed is the main objective here. What I do believe is this, you have been led astray by one or more persons whereas it leads you to take it out on the wrong people. Tell me if I am right or tell me whether I am wrong.

I taught this man how to write his first check (as an adult), I bought his first suit, I taught him how to be more presentable to the public so that he could have more opportunities; and as my husband, I helped him with his depts and he with mine, I never refused him of seeing his children, yet he is doing that to me. I helped this man with his schoolwork and was there for his graduation at my hometown’s community college, yet I am just a few credit from earning my own Associate’s degree. It bothers me to this day that I put aside my own education, an education that I started when he was not around, in order to accomadate him.

Unbeknowst to a lot of his peers and to me myself as well, my family had claimed to be related to the one and only LA REID, a huge producer in the music industry. Now here is the hypocrisy When my he was told that my relationship with him might actually be truthful, he refused me to go with him when he was trying to get a deal. I remember the day that he told me that he had an interview with him and I told him the story.

When I was younger, one of my uncles had stated that LA Reid had been to one family reunion and never returned to another. I do not know how true that was but once my ex-husband had an opportunity to meet him, he never allowed me to go with him to clarify. It would have been nice to see who belonged to the other side of my family who were actually making it but my now-ex-husband refused me. Talk about an ego trip. It seemed to me that he wanted to have all of the credits for accomplishments, like most people. I am not going to knock him for that. Unfortunately, his evil did not payoff like he thought it would. To this day I still do not know the truth.

My family consists of so many names that it is ridiculous but the Reid’s are definitely my namesake even though I have never been a Reid on paper. I use to be proud of the Reid family, but now, I really do not know what to think or to believe. I was born before my parent’s were married and that was the bottom-line.. It really did not matter to me whose last name I carried as long as my family that I weined was ok. Does that make sense?

I am not here to be my ex-husband’s judge in anyway but I do know how God works…

What goes around comes around.

Jealousy is an evil too, you know.

I had the knowledge and the means to make my life better and his new family wanted to destroy that just to make it seem that they were better off.

That way of thought is so horrendous to the point of being sickenly insecure; but what can you do?

His new wife wants me to drop my last name. Can you believe that. She makes it seem that it was all important and even if it was; how is it benefiting anyone. What is she getting out of it. She shoud be sued simply because of the fact that she was literally srewing a married man whether or not we were separated or not. Her money is mine at this point. Nd then then she tries to manipulate my children that I raised to be good, honest human beings in which they no longer are. I do not know how many women have been threw this but I am sure that you would really consider the fact that this woman, in this circumstance, is due a very good ass-whooping.

I did not care if you had the man, the money, or lack thereof, but they do not have to get our children involved. If that is how you were raised, that is fine but you should not seek your purposes on other peoples families you trifling whore. I have made mistakes and that is true but it has never amounted to separating a family on purpose.

Let them drown themselves. That’s what I say. The meek shall rule the earth and these people are by no means wanting to be on that level so I will say to them, Hasta luega, Hasta la vista, whatever.

I did not have to be impress other people to be happy or nor did I shop off of someone else’s tab. Think about it.

Brand Obama: Totalitarianism 2.0-America has been seized by an executive dictatorship

From the article:
“The Trilateralist Commission is international…(and)…is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateralist Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power – political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical.” Barry Goldwater.

These special interests could not have successfully consolidated executive power without the aid of the mainstream media in covering it all up, keeping Americans distracted, deluded and decadent, as arch-elitists like David Rockefeller set about their business.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years….It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.” David Rockefeller.

Rockefeller himself even bragged that he was “guilty” and “proud” of being part of “a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States” in his own book.

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure–one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” David Rockefeller, Memoirs.

– After Congress rejected the DREAM Act, Obama moved to allow illegal immigrants brought into the United States by their parents to be exempt from law enforcement actions, a power grab characterized by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) as an “unprecedented level” of executive fiat.

Believe it…Or Not


The following is from an email that I have saved since May 26, 2006. Sadly, based on this email and my own personal experiences, I now see the full picture. I hated politics then and I sure as hell do not like it now. Never did I imagine that I would ever become involved with world politics to any extent.

We go through life thinking that there is no way that anything to the caliber of a New World Order could ever happen to us…until it does. Who could possibly know that the events of the world could influence your life so deeply? Most of the time, as Americans, we do not give these things a second thought until it becomes an ‘Oops, upside the head’, so to speak.

The following article is definitely an eye opener for me. It’s suggestions are not too far from the truth. Frankly, I want to kick myself because I see now that it could have been my sign, my warning of what was going to happen but I really wasn’t paying attention. It was my rude awakening and maybe, then, I should have known that what we think will not influence us actually can whether we like it or not.

So much for trying to mind your own personal business. Unfortunately, the world’s politics is our business whether we want it to be or not.

36. The UN has financed the operations of the United States government for over 50 years and now owns every man, women and child in America. The UN also holds all of the Land in America in Fee Simple. *

37. The good news is we don’t have to fulfill “our” fictitious obligations. You can discharge a fictitious obligation with another’s fictitious obligation. *

38. The depression and World War II were a total farce. The United States and various other companies were making loans to others all over the World during the Depression. The building of Germanys infrastructure in the 1930’s including the Railroads was financed by the United States. That way those who call themselves “Kings,” “Prime Ministers,” and “Fuher,”etc could sit back and play a game of chess using real people. Think of all of the Americans, Germans etc. who gave their lives thinking they were defending their Countries which didn’t even exist. The millions of innocent people who died for nothing. Isn’t it obvious why Switzerland is never involved in these fiascoes? That is where the “Bank of International Settlements” is located. Wars are manufactured to keep your eye off the ball. You have to have an enemy to keep the illusion of “Government” in place. *

39. The “United States” did not declare Independence from Great Britain or King George. *

I must study politics and war that my sons may have liberty to study mathematics and philosophy.

Hollywood’s Mysterious Illuminati Connections


Celebrities have influence, that’s not an arguable fact. However, there is a part of the world that believes certain famous faces yield more power than others. This power, they believe, stems from the backing of an ancient German secret society that quietly rules the world: the Illuminati (yes, the same group Tom Hanks sought in “Angels & Demons”). The mysterious sect is thought to be a front for the rise of the Antichrist– the Devil’s all-seeing eye triangle is their universal sign — and is often accused of masterminding large-scale events (think President JFK’s assassination) in an attempt to establish a New World Order, in which they can rule.

Judge: NSA spying ‘almost Orwellian,’ likely unconstitutional

Orwellian” is an adjective describing the situation, idea, or societal condition that George Orwell identified as being destructive to the welfare of a free and open society. It connotes an attitude and a brutal policy of draconian control by propaganda, surveillance, misinformation, denial of truth, and manipulation of the past, including the “unperson” — a person whose past existence is expunged from the public record and memory, practiced by modern repressive governments. Often, this includes the circumstances depicted in his novels, particularly Nineteen Eighty-Four.[1]


“To draw an analogy, if the NSA’s program operates the way the Government suggests it does, then omitting Verizon Wireless, AT&T, and Sprint from the collection would be like omitting John, Paul, and George from a historical analysis of the Beatles. A Ringo-only database doesn’t make any sense, and I cannot believe the Government would create, maintain, and so ardently defend such a system,” he wrote in footnote 36 on page 38.

Among Leon’s other flourishes, he warned that the so-called war on terrorism “realistically could be forever!” He expressed concerns about the “almost Orwellian technology that enables the Government to store and analyze the phone metadata of every telephone user in the United States.” And he said modern-day surveillance tactics would have been “the stuff of science fiction” at the time a precedent ruling was issued.

The White House had no immediate response to the ruling.

mstmha: “A prime example of the denial of truth from my personal experience as a Targeted Individual (and mind you, this is just one of many)…

I recieved a call from a recruiter at Bank of America in regards to a position in which I had applied that was being offered in Virginia.  Now, I am a previous Bank of America employee. I worked as a part-teller for a little over a year. I was not making money working part-time but, as luck may have it, a manager that I use to work for offered me a full time position at a toy distribution warehouse as a Transportation Assistant (something that I knew nothing about). He said that he had chosen me from hundreds of applicants and wanted to know if I wanted the full-time position. Now to be clear, I had worked for this gentleman before at the same company but it was a seasonal position at that time. In other words, layoff was inevitable but years later, an opportunity for a full-time, permanent position had presented itself and I was greatful because my family really needed the money. I was literally being mentally abused by my husband at the time because it was hard for him to find employment due to his criminal history and I was feeding the family off of part-time money. Do you see the conflict? My now ex-husband made it seem that it was my fault that we were barely surviving even though it was he that was the louse.

Anyway, just to make a long story short, I accepted the full-time position with the toy distribution company and eventually put in a written notice to my branch manager, Debra Sizemore, of my leave.

The point that I am getting at is this. Once another position came open recently at Bank of America, they denied me stating that the reason was because I never put in notice to relinquish my position prior (in which was a bold-faced lie). I can literally cite another manager who worked at the same branch that knows, for a fact, that I did. This manager and myself have been in conversation about it and even she was appalled because even she knew that I had, indeed, put in notice.

My point is this, if these perps do not want you around, they will use any means necessary to make that happen. If you are a Targeted Individual (TI) then be prepared for the lying and disinformation that they will, no doubt, have coming. They lie and never ask questions. What they say is, I am assuming, pledged to their peers to the point where they are always going to be convincing and the money and/or perks that they bribe their peers with certainly does not hurt them either.

My introduction to the NSA was through the street theatres that they orchestrated to torture me in the state of  Virginia. Whether it was them or not, they outwardly admitted through their mics in my home that it was their organization that were the culprits. My city was split in teams and the so-called NSA seemed to always be on top. When I was getting ripped, sliced, and diced, they were always there to put me under ‘repair’ as if they were my saviors. I do not know whether to cry or to say thank you for saving me when it was them that was behind my transhumanistic death.

I lived in three worlds on their ‘live’ sets in Virginia according to their street theater: the Dream World, the Real World, and the World of the Demi-Gods in which I could see, involved a lot of NASA technology.  It was absolutely incredible and frightening at the same time to experience these technologies. Tell me, have you ever slept with a hologram?


*Demi-God definition: 1. a lesser god; minor deity, b. the offspring of a human being and god or goddess 2. a godlike person

(Why was I chosen for the world of the Demi-Gods? Good question.

I will once again assume that they were studying my level of hypersensity. I have experienced the presence of ghosts since I was a kid and somehow they found out about it. They called me the ‘trillion dollar’ baby’. Whether they were studying me or just playing games remains to be seen but I do know that genetics is very important to these people and if your genes show anything out of the ordinary then you may unwillingly become a victim to their studies and causes.)

Now, my experiences and others were nothing but games to them. These perps would change a movie or a video game into a ‘save the world’ program in which you are rounding up rings of money launderers, sex-offenders, etc. It was all a game to them! It wasn’t as if anyone was really being arrested but they would express that you had power over those circumstances and that you have done a public service. Amazingly, they would even make it seem that your life actually had meaning while they would attempt to steal every dime that you had and this no joke. Those experiences were not funny and nor am I laughing.

To accomplish these unbelievable feats, it would take an organization that has some very high-tech equipment. I am talking Hollywood, movie-making expertise.  With that said, who is the NSA?  From my never-ending research, they are nothing short of Nazi’s and NASA. The perfect team of sci-fi specialist with a cause for their means. They have the perfect ‘Iluminati’ connections to make things seem that they are real when they are not. (Does this not remind you of the MKULTRA programs at all?)

I would swear on anything, including the Bible, that if I had never seen what they could do for myself (with my own eyes), then I would have never believed it. And that is real. Make no mistake, but truly I would take a polygraph or a brain fingerprint to it any day.

Talk about disinformation, the media is only focusing on the unconstitutional phone tapping violations  of the NSA  but they have failed to mention anything else that the NSA is involved in or are capable of, including the ganstalking and torture of millions of innocent individuals through electromagnetic weapons and so on…

*We are now living in a world that thrives off of freak shows’ folks and there are nothing but freaks running it. How do you feel about that?

I can solemnly swear that they have put the ‘Invisible Man’, the ‘Abominable Snowman’, ‘Big Foot’, and even the ‘Easter Bunny’ as well as all other unbelievables out of business. And believe me when I say that I no longer have a fear of Freddy Krueger. He was a saint in comparison.

…Santa Claus who?…

Ice Water-A Short Story

Gustav Klimt's The Kiss

  “Paint a perfect picture…

   Bring to life a vision in one’s mind…

   The beautiful one’s always smash the picture…

   Always, everytime.”


                                                                                    Ice Water

                                                                        By Tiffany Hood-Acolatse



She watched him breathe slowly beside her as he slept and as by fate, she knew that their story was all the more clearer than it was yesterday, the day before, or even years prior…

Sway leaned her voluptuous curves readily against the glossy, red body of the Ferrari 488 Spider as the photographer snapped his camera feverishly in her direction. With a small poke of the lip and a turn of her tiny waist, unashamed, she showed off her very shapely apple bottom and shocked him with a gorgeous, veneered smile.

Sweat poured from his face as if it were a hundred degrees outside as he continued to photograph his favorite muse. The quickening blue-black clouds in the Georgia sky were the perfect background to the prints he had in mind for her portfolio. He smiled, appreciating the view before him that, in his mind, was nothing less than perfect.

She stared, uninhibited, into the Nikon camera; amused by the reactions of her long time friend as he tried dutifully to hold the camera still while capturing her beauty frame after frame. She knew what was on his mind but he had to understand that she had too much to lose. As the owner of Sway-tique, a multimillion dollar lingerie franchise, Sway was proudly on her way to creating one of the most unique boutique labels in the fashion industry.

After about an hour of posing, instinctively, Sway glanced quickly upwards and glimpsed her husband staring angrily out of their second-floor bedroom window. “Oh no,” she scolded herself quietly as she watched him disappear inside. How could she have forgotten? Her black curls swirled around her face as she hurriedly turned back to the photographer.

“Dammit,  Reggie,” she screamed demandingly. “What time is it!” She began hurriedly straightening her Dolce and Gabbana caftan.

Reggie looked puzzled as he dropped one hand from the camera and checked his mediocre Timex. He hadn’t noticed that her husband had been watching them from above and stared at her in confusion.

“It’s 6:00, baby,” he exclaimed. He then turned to his left and grabbed a full glass of ice water that sat so temptingly on the brown, stoned fence wrapped around her front yard and gulped the coolness. He was trying, in his mind, to piece together what had just happened to make her go so ballistic.

Sway became frantic. “ Keith and I have a flight to catch to Bora Bora by 8:30 and I haven’t packed our bags!,” she cried miserably. “He‘s waiting upstairs. I’ve gotta go.”  Sway quickly walked up and placed a Guerlain KissKiss smooch on his warm cheek and then bailed the pristine courtyard in haste to the front door as if she were running the forty yard dash.

As the breeze whistled past her ears, she didn’t mistake the sound of the refreshing clink of the ice inside the crystal as she eased her way through the heavy, Tuscan doors enclosing the front entry. It amazed her as to how distinct the sound was even from a distance and before she closed the doors behind her, she stole a brief glance at him and noticed that the glass in his hand was still enticingly full; and the ice sparkled with a quenching promise.

As Reggie stood alone, he watched as she darted away and entered the adobe-style-home that belonged to she and her blasé, investment banker husband. A husband that Reggie knew could never really love her as she deserved.

Keith did not want a wife; he wanted a trophy. Their marriage was an emotional façade and a monetary jail cell.  Reggie knew Sway hated every minute of Keith’s braggart efforts to impress his peers simply because she now understood, after five years of marriage, that her husband would have nothing to do with her if it weren’t for his sociopathic need to remain on the family’s A-list.

Sway was a very strong and competent woman and her husband should have been proud to possess such a work of art. Like a Gustav Klimt, she was both beautiful and unpredictable. She was also both powerful in business and a model wife. Nothing like her husband who had been a penny pinching day trader when they met.  Without her, Keith would never have stood a chance in her world. She had been his guide stone, his only path to success.

Reggie stood alone in the courtyard for just a few moments more while staring at the three-story home as if it were a plague at Gldani. The blue-black clouds in the sky had darkened to an almost absolute shade of black as it eclipsed, framing the house with its darkness.

He was quietly astounded over the fact that the heavens had, yet again, created another perfect picture. He reached slowly for his camera once again and snapped a picture for remembrance.

His time with Sway had been cut short and in that, he was very disappointed.  He   always looked forward to seeing her. Hanging his head, he started silently down the cemented walkway at the side of the house towards the kitchen quarters located at the back of the home.  He needed to relieve himself of his still full glass of ice water whose cubes clinked harmoniously like his heart when he was with her.


Inside the elaborately decorated home, Sway ran as fast she could to her second story bedroom suite. She found, when she arrived, that her husband was standing inside their custom Tesalia wardrobe glaring into the vanity mirror. She measured the depth of his anger and cringed. She knew what would come next.

“I’m sorry, Keith,” she began as she stumbled inside, eyes lowered. “I completely lost track of time but I‘ll…”. Her voice faded as she moved to begin their packing but stopped in her tracks once she noticed the many Louis Vuitton bags piled in the corner of the wardrobe waiting to be towed downstairs.

His face was frightening as he turned and walked towards her. It was then that she noticed that he was holding a glass of ice in his right hand but the liquid inside had been depleted. It was even stranger still to see that when his six-foot-two frame moved in her direction, the ice never made a sound.

Once in front of her, she stared wary into his eyes as he towered above her.  His free hand lifted to stroke her cheek softly and then, un-expectantly, she felt his hand drop to her neck angrily and then began to squeeze tightly. She tried to scream.

“You little tramp! You couldn‘t stop screwing around long enough to pack a bag,” his voice maddening. Sway attempted to release his hands from around her throat but his fingers would not budge. She tried to scream again but became hoarse as his hand tightened even more. The lack of oxygen was making her weak and she felt faint.

Suddenly, Keith slammed her against the walls of the wardrobe. She slumped to the floor in pain from the impact then attempted to catch her breathe.  She looked up just in time to see the glass of ice from his hand soar through the air and crash to the floor. In shock, she attempted to regain her composure until she spotted Keith and Reggie lunging at one another.

What she least expected to see next was the gleam of the gun. Crying sorrowfully, Sway rushed to her feet. She started towards them but the ice from the empty glass intervened. Her hands flailed in the air as she felt herself falling towards the floor again. The last thing see remembered was the sound of the gun firing, the crack of her head as it hit the vanity dresser, and then there was nothing but darkness.

Confused, Sway awakened, allowing the haze of sleep to fade. In disbelief, she noticed Reggie sleeping next to her. She couldn‘t help staring. She watched him breathe slowly beside her as he slept and as by fate, she knew that their story was all the more clearer than it was yesterday, the day before, or even years prior, or so she thought.

She looked around, ingesting the meager surroundings of the bedroom. It had only been a dream she sighed with relief but before falling back to sleep, she noticed a familiar glass of ice water full to the brim on the bedside table and smiled at the coincidence. She could feel her heart swelling to match its fullness as she openly adored him.

Reggie didn‘t wake her as he admired his beautiful muse’s face as she slept. He turned to stare at the picture of Sway’s very real three-story home surrounded by eclipsed skies on his bedroom wall and thought back on the hurtful past before Sway’s unfortunate amnesia. He held her in his arms and made a silent promise to always cherish this woman who was his ice. The woman who was now his perfect picture.
