Colleen Bushnell didn’t just perjure herself in a court of law but she lied about her sons being sexually molested by their grandparents. She did this in response to losing custody of her two children to them. Now she is a self proclaimed advocate for military sexual trauma. She basically has zero credibility in any court of law, therefore a significant risk to any client’s case. They conducted an extensive investigation only to find out that she simply made it up in an effort to get her children back.
Why is this narcissistic request so ridiculous?
1. Attacks veterans with PTSD relentlessly on Facebook (click here)
3. Perjured herself under oath in court of law (click here)
4. Posted fake ‘Cease & Desist Order’ on Facebook against another veteran (click here)
5. Elicits veterans to fight her battles & encourages them to dog pile other veterans
6. Stalks and bullies other advocates who actually help troops & veterans, claims they bully her/disagree with her, then tries to get them disliked and abused by others by making things up
Today I stopped to think about how I was triggered by Jeremiah Arbogast all these months. How could a military sexual assault survivor not be triggered by this pit bull? He literally aggressed himself into my life. He stalked me professionally because I blocked him and his cronies from my personal life.
I read Jeremiah’s story today. I could see the pitbull even in the way he went after his perpetrator. He showed everyone who was boss then and hasn’t stopped yet. He literally engaged his enemy and then sought out his targets one by one with the help of the less fortunate who don’t understand that he uses people.
I am finally confronting this guy because he has purposefully pushed my triggers which has led me to feeling suicidal on numerous occasions. He shamed my husband and I for a PTSD suicide intervention that went terribly wrong after law enforcement got involved. We have both worked very hard to overcome that dark day. We hit our rock bottom and at that moment we turned our lives around.
We were doing pretty good too. Until I thought I could effortlessly get involved in the MST movement. I found out quick that the lines had been drawn then and things have only got worse. I never even chose a side and because Kori Cioca hates certain people, I of course got dragged into these middle school games.
I treated all of you people with the utmost professionalism even though you were not my favorite spokes people by any means. But now, because you are insecure and bored, you chose your target and have gone straight for the PTSD. Mission successful.
Thanks for repaying my devoted support for you and the film with a bitch slap across the face. How dare you go after a retired military member with PTSD because they were successful without being in an oscar nominated film. Hard work and good intentions goes a long way. It is in fact the American Dream. You are getting in the way of my happiness and prosperity by constantly targeting and triggering my PTSD.
Your behavior is despicable considering you are the bullies pushing people to isolation and suicide. Yet when confronted the first thing you will say is that you are suicidal to hold everyone hostage with your antics. Not falling for it and definitely not buying it. You have met your match.
With cases of bullying on the rise, it is becoming more apparent than ever that female bullying is just as common as bullying with males. It is a common misconception that boys and teen males are the most dominant types of bullies. In fact, girls can be just as ruthless especially when it comes to the type of bullying that is not as physical. Types of bullying like cyberbullying are often spearheaded by teen girls placing an attack on their peers verbally. However, harsh words, lies and rumors can be just as devastating to a child or teen as being physically attacked.

One would think that as people mature and progress through life, that they would stop behaviors of their youth. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sadly, adults can be bullies, just as children and teenagers can be bullies. While adults are more likely to useverbal bullying as opposed to physical bullying, the fact of the matter is that adult bullying exists. The goal of an adult bully is to gain power over another person, and make himself or herself the dominant adult. They try to humiliate victims, and “show them who is boss.”
There are several different types of adult bullies, and it helps to know how they operate:
- Narcissistic Adult Bully: This type of adult bully is self-centered and does not share empathy with others. Additionally, there is little anxiety about consequences. He or she seems to feel good about him or herself, but in reality has a brittle narcissism that requires putting others down.
- Impulsive Adult Bully: Adult bullies in this category are more spontaneous and plan their bullying out less. Even if consequences are likely, this adult bully has a hard time restraining his or her behavior. In some cases, this type of bullying may be unintentional, resulting in periods of stress, or when the bully is actually upset or concerned about something unconnected with the victim.
- Physical Bully: While adult bullying rarely turns to physical confrontation, there are, nonetheless, bullies that use physicality. In some cases, the adult bully may not actually physically harm the victim, but may use the threat of harm, or physical domination through looming. Additionally, a physical bully may damage or steal a victim’s property, rather than physically confronting the victim.
- Verbal Adult Bully: Words can be quite damaging. Adult bullies who use this type of tactic may start rumors about the victim, or use sarcastic or demeaning language to dominate or humiliate another person. This subtle type of bullying also has the advantage – to the bully – of being difficult to document. However, the emotional and psychological impacts of verbal bullying can be felt quite keenly and can result in reduced job performance and even depression.
- Secondary Adult Bully: This is someone who does not initiate the bullying, but joins in so that he or she does not actually become a victim down the road. Secondary bullies may feel bad about what they are doing, but are more concerned about protecting themselves.
Workplace bullying can make life quite miserable and difficult. Supervisors should be made aware of adult bullies, since they can disrupt productivity, create a hostile work environment (opening the company to the risk of a law suit) and reduce morale.
Cyberbullying is bullying that takes place using electronic technology. Electronic technology includes devices and equipment such as cell phones, computers, and tablets as well as communication tools including social media sites, text messages, chat, and websites.
Examples of cyberbullying include mean text messages or emails, rumors sent by email or posted on social networking sites, and embarrassing pictures, videos, websites, or fake profiles.
Effects of Cyberbullying: These tools can be used to hurt other people. Whether done in person or through technology, the effects of bullying are similar. The impact of cyberbullying on veterans with Post Traumatic Stress are life ending if not addressed.
Since June 2013, I have been told to ignore the aggressive cyberbullying behavior of Jeremiah Arbogast et al only to have it escalate, harm others, & then watch him be rewarded by organizations and Senators for his deceitful, underhanded ways. While he is getting promoted in media, he is beating down other advocates who never said a word to him. Because he is promoted in media, it means that other veterans may contact him only to be harmed by his sociopathic tendencies and lack of empathy for others. Where does one draw the line?
When the cyberbullies live across state lines and there are a group of them, it is difficult to build a case on any single individual. Therefore, in order to document the abuse, we must endure the abuse from the group collectively. This is not easy to do if you have PTSD especially from Military Sexual Trauma. I was hoping that by ignoring this it would all go away. Until now, I have not had time to deal with this lunacy. But it is worth my time to focus, call it out, and put an end to it for the safety of myself and others.
It is rare that the feds will make cyberbullying a priority in their cases until someone is threatened, harmed, or killed. We are not going to wait until the cyberbullies follow through with threats to harm. It’s bad enough that one of them told me he killed the three men who raped him and someone we believe is Jeremiah sent a text message saying that he wasn’t afraid of my ‘lazy’ service dog. We are going to nip this in the bud before it goes any further. The impact this has on PTSD alone is criminal.
Since there are no clear laws on how to stop cyberbullies across state lines, the documentation will be conducted on-line so as to warn others of their potential to harm. I would recommend remaining quiet so that you do not become the next target. It has literally pushed veterans into bed for weeks at a time; it has a significant impact on depression & feeling hopeless. Both depression and hopelessness lead one to feel suicidal. The guy who uses suicide as his media platform is actually pushing other veterans to feeling suicidal.
The behavior is so abusive and so detrimental to one’s psyche that it can be a trigger for suicide if you become the target or object of their efforts to hurt you, embarrass you, belittle you, etc. They purposefully find ways to trigger your PTSD and hit below the belt because they don’t have empathy for others. Please lay low and take care of yourself while we take them on, endure the abuse, and collect evidence. We should all be able to advocate for our beliefs without becoming a victim of cyberbullying.
You don’t have to say or do anything wrong to become a target. Apparently, if you work hard and really care about the troops that makes you a target. If you have become a target in any way, please let us know and we will post what they have done to you but keep your name confidential. We will also provide you with support so you don’t feel alone like we did. We know that if you are found out that the retaliation will only get worse and we want to prevent any veteran with PTSD from becoming their next target.
Disclaimer: Although I knew Jeremiah Arbogast, Kori Cioca, & Colleen Bushnell from the MST community/’movement’ (via the INTERNET), I do not KNOW them. I met Jeremiah & Colleen briefly in person but by no means had a relationship of any kind with any of these people. Also, although I didn’t say a word while all this was going down, it impacted my PTSD significantly to the point that I took some time off to focus on maintaining my strength for this fight. I went to the VA and spoke to them about how do deal with being targeted by internet trolls. All impacts the internet bullying/stalking had on my PTSD were documented at the Department of Veteran Affairs.
Timeline of Events:
In May 2013, I received a call from Michael Matthews. I had recently introduced the MJIA in it’s original format in DC. Matthews called me to inform me that MJIA was not the answer & that everyone thought I was a media whore. After PTSD was triggered, I spoke to Wendi Goodman who wrote this piece for us. How Dare You Call Us MST Media Whores by Wendi Goodman After Wendi Goodman posted that blog, she informed me that Kori Cioca contacted her & gave her a hard time about it. Why is that? Because she is friends with Michael Matthews.
After going to New Mexico to support the male MST film, Jeremiah Arbogast sends tweet in June 2013 calling me a bitch and snob. He was promptly blocked on both Twitter and Facebook. I was told to ignore.
Jeremiah Arbogast posts irrelevant article about me from past which included my physical address. Found out that he posted it on Facebook (with hateful message) from another advocate. He posted an article of an encounter that my husband and I had with some local police after I called them to get help for my combat veteran husband. He basically threw a night of PTSD crisis from the past back in my family’s face. Why? I was told to ignore. Read article here.
Jennifer McClendon, friends of Michael Matthews and his wife informed me that she would “finish me” via text message.
Never spoke to Tiffany Arbogast in my life and then I get a crazy random Facebook message from Jeremiah’s wife accusing me of bullying Jeremiah. She was then blocked on Facebook. Asked other advocates what to do. I was told to ignore.
In July 2013, I found out about Colleen Bushnell’s fake “Ceast and Desist” order on Facebook from a client. Also learned that Kori Cioca was not only supportive of said activity but encouraging it. Both of these people were blocked on Facebook and Twitter. I was told to ignore.
Received copy of fake cease and desist order via e-mail from Colleen Bushnell, as did the Executive Director of the organization that I volunteer for. I was told to ignore.
In November 2013, I found out about the Facebook Advocate’s conversation about other MST Advocates from someone who was included in the conversation and absolutely disgusted with the things that were said by those same people promoted in the media because of their affiliation with the Invisible War documentary. For the entire conversation that Jeremiah Arbogast, Lamanda Walker, Kori Cioca, Diana Coontz, et al had about how to take out Kate Weber, Jennifer Norris and others, please click here.
TO BE CONTINUED…
I never spoke one ill word to either Jeremiah Arbogast or Colleen Bushnell ever in my life (aside from calling Jeremiah a bully after he first attacked me on twitter). I don’t know Kori Cioca from a hole in the wall. Yet everyone appears to know everything me, makes shit up, and I am bullying them even though they are all blocked. This is the first time that I am publicly speaking about this craziness. From here on out, I will post anything that is directed at me on this blog to document the behavior, but mostly to protect others from their harm.
