Legacy of Senator Wellstone

The Trafficking Victims Protection Act

Dan Montgomery

October 31, 2002

Senator Paul Wellstone, a Democrat from Minnesota, died in a plane crash on October 25, 2002. Also killed in his campaign plane were his wife, Sheila, his daughter, Marcia Markuson, three campaign aides and two pilots. His death was 11 days away from the election.

Senator Wellstone's greatest achivement was passage of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000. Trafficking in persons is a modern form of slavery. Involuntary servitude is prohibited by the thirteenth amendment of the US Constitution, but the courts have ruled that some modern techniques of enslavement are not prohibited by the thirteenth amendment.

Sheila Wellstone listened to heartbreaking stories of women and girls victimized by international trafficking in forced labor and prostitution. Sheila became an activist against such crime. Her efforts, with Senator Wellstone, were instrumental in creating the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000. This is the first comprehensive law aimed at preventing trafficking. The law strengthens the prosecution of those responsible for trafficking and provides protection for victims of trafficking.

The elements of trafficking are force, fraud or coercion. Trafficking, mainly with illegal immigrants, is a fast growing source of profits for organized crime. Trafficking for sex has all the elements of forcible rape. Trafficking is a health risk to the victims. Trafficking involves forced labor, illegal immigration, kidnapping, slavery, false imprisonment, assault, battery, pandering, fraud and extortion.

This law was intended as a legal remedy for a limitation of the thirteenth amendment. In US v. Kozminski, the Supreme Court ruled that involuntary servitude is " . . . servitude that is brought about through use or threatened use of physical or legal coercion and to exclude other conduct that can have the same purpose and effect." The Court held that using psychological coercion to make someone do something was not involuntary servitude. (114 Stat. 1464f, US Code Congressional and Administrative News, 106th Congress, second session, 2000).

Psychological coercion is relevant to mind control techniques. It is just as controlling and debilitating as old fashioned slavery enforced with chains and guns, yet, it is more dangerous to liberty and the values of a free society because it is difficult to detect.

There is a variety of mind control techniques currently being used with impunity in the US. The most pervasive technique uses subliminal words. These can be delivered by sound recordings or electronic waves. These cannot be perceived by the untrained person. They have the element of fraud for involuntary servitude.

Some people learn to perceive subliminal words. The perpetrators then resort to making subliminal attacks at night when the victim is sleeping. There is a variety of ways to block the influence of subliminal words. These work in normal situations, but when the perpetrators do not get the desired results, they turn the power up higher and higher. Electronic waves which target the hearing center can be turned up so high that they cause electrical sensitivity. Electronic waves are a direct physical attack. A physical force from which one cannot escape is a technique of involuntary servitude.

Persistant targeting with electronic waves leads to electrical sensitivity, which can cause any of the following symptoms: tingling of nerves, sleepiness, headache, dizziness, unconsciousness; pain, tightness, spasm or fibrillation in muscles; palpitation, flushing, tachycardia or edema because of impairment of the circulatory system; pressure in ears, tooth pains, tightness in chest, dyspnea, nausea, belching, burning eyes and itching, burning or prickling skin. (Rea, et al., "Electromagnetic Field Sensitivity," Journal of Bioelectricity, 10(1&2), 241-256, quoted from Dr. Rea's website at www.aehf.com/articles/em_sensitive.html). These acts of reckless endangerment with a physical force from which one cannot escape are an element of involuntary servitude.

The guilty and the factitious would have us believe that subliminal words are ineffective. One can presume that subliminal words would not be perpetrated so relentlessly if they were ineffective. These kind take advantage of the victim's lack of knowledge or inability to gather and preserve the evidence of how debilitating mind control systems really are.
