Bryan Tew Flees New York, Returns to San Diego / Open Thread

Quickie post, maybe I’ll expand later.

Bryan got into a lunch room fight at the homeless shelter with another bum and decided to leave a few days ago. He was briefly in Los Angeles but has since moved on to San Diego.

The last I saw of him, he was camping outside of the “Old Town Church” and later that morning, he went to the DMV to attempt a renewal of his California driver license. Does this mean he wants to get another vehicle (car and/or scooter as before) and possibly live out of the car? We’ll see how this unfolds.

  1. Bryan’s complaining that they don’t properly screen out the mentally ill at the Borden Shelter.

    Maybe the other mentally ill guy that attacked Bryan before (which I’m not disputing) also claimed during his screening process that he wasn’t mentally ill and didn’t need to see a psychologist?

    Also, “The Clean Urine Stash” on Youtube just made this compilation video of Bryan’s various international jaunts set to Daft Punk’s “Around the World”.

    (If TCUS is reading this, I think the title should be “International Man of Mystery”, not “Man of International Mystery”, unless you intentionally changed the word order from the title of the original Austin Powers film.)

  2. Bryan filmed himself laying on the pavement outside of a CHASE bank across the street from the VA hospital, saying he got kicked out (probably because the hospital itself isn’t really a shelter).

    I have some sympathy for Bryan but, on the other hand, just the other week, he showed that he had more money in his bank account than I’ve had at any one time in nearly a decade, and that’s after he bought the laptop, but he squandered it all on plane tickets.

    • Another one, more of a “woe is me” video. He’s kinda admitting that there’s no point in running around anymore. Too scared to go back to the shelter but has no choice.

      Still sticking to the story about his ordinary audiology exams being proof of .. something.

      I remember a while back another TI offered him a room in California but he turned him down. That’s not looking so bad now.

      He should just go and buy that used car like he was trying to do last week. (I mean he should get psychiatric treatment, but if he won’t do that then at least living out of a car is probably going to work better for him than the shelter where he’ll continuously get into fights)

      • It seemed like the cabin on the VA campus in Santa Monica would’ve been better than sleeping in a car or also staying at any of these New York shelters. I’m not sure why he gave that up beyond “I don’t want to wait 10 days for a cardiologist appointment!” (without actually seeing a cardiologist at any point on his post-LA journeys as far as I’m aware).

      • Bryan is at the JFK airport this morning trying to book a ticket to LAX. He thinks it is a malicious conspiracy that “” redirects to “” (I checked and the domains belong to the same company) even though that is extremely common practice.

  3. We may have had this discussion before (if so, just ignore me or whatever) but re: the audiology exams, Bryan is complaining about ringing / screeching sounds in his ears more than anything.

    I don’t think a standard audiology exam would pick that up – he’s just getting standard frequency response tests that test his ability to hear tones over a range of frequencies. He sees the slight dip at a certain frequency and translates this to “severe trauma” (and ignores everything the audiologist actually says in the remarks about his “excellent” hearing ability).

    In other words, he’s going about this the wrong way. He’s not getting the right tests. He’s probably not actually *telling* the audiologist what is wrong, he just wants a fucking test to parade around on YouTube and in front of people who don’t believe him.

    People with tinnitus especially more severe cases report the condition to often be unbearable and psychologically taxing. So I get it, it may be a big deal for him.

    But it is also a common condition (Wikipedia says 12.5% of people have some form of it) which kinda deflates the claims that the ringing has anything to do with microwave rays being beamed by secret CIA agents in a room next door or whatever (the more people have a condition, the less and less plausible the notion that the CIA has the manpower to target that many hundreds of millions of people across the world in a way that’s unnoticeable).

    • So Bryan, go tell the doctor what your problem is. Don’t mention CIA agents and microwaves. Millions upon millions of people have this condition in some form and severity. You won’t seem unbelievable or an oddball case by complaining about ringing in the ears. Let the doctors decide what tests you actually need.

      I have to wonder if the pain pills Bryan likes to consume have anything to do with it. Rush Limbaugh famously suffered severe hearing loss after abusing opiates and required cochlear implants to be able to hear again. Although in his case, it was just hearing loss, not tinnitus AFAIK so I’m not sure.

      Also the way he uses earbuds / earphones. Is he playing music super loudly *because* of the tinnitus or is the super loud volume causing it? It certainly can’t be helping it.

  4. Been too busy to watch the countless spew of her videos posted in the last 24 hours but Candy Grandpre appears to be out on the street again without a place to stay. Every source of noise that bothers her is from a gangstalker specifically targeting her (or so she claims).

    Every car with a missing headlight or tail light is also a gangstalker which makes even less sense than thinking the ambulances or lawnmowers are targeting her – at least you can say the annoying/distracting sirens are somehow a conspiracy against you, but how is a broken light that causes zero harm or annoyance to you a conspiracy?

    • Everything triggers her. It used to be headlights during the day, now it’s no headlights during the day. She just calls everything “funny” now and doesn’t even try to explain. Like “brighting lights.” A car pulled into a parking space in front of the building at night, so headlights on. She was sitting down, so her eyes would be near level with the light. The car is turned off, the lights go off. All usual things that shouldn’t need explanation. But she is so deluded, Everything triggers her as a “stalking tactic,” or it “traumatizes” her.
      I once tried to explain to her that cars playing music will sound louder the closer the car gets to her, and goes softer as the car moves away. Nope. Cars turn their stereos up and down, just to annoy her. Same thing with sirens.
      Currently, she is pissing off everybody she encounters. She also insists on giving the “I peed on myself” reports while calling other homeless people dirty. Places she knows that banned her, she is entering, then getting all indignant when told to leave.
      And doesn’t understand subtle nuances of speech, like sarcasm.
      As far as her triggers go, I have asked a TI group when I find one, who made the triggering list, what authority does that person have to make such a list, and how was each item on the list determined. Because it is literally a .pdf on a website. No one has ever answered. I think it made them uncomfortable to even think about.
      Why I mention it now is Candy now claims such things as tinted windows, something very common in hot, sunny areas because of heat and people who drive with their window down and their arm on the door are both “tactics.” If my window is open, my arm is on the sill, and I’ve been driving a long time. It’s why I got whiplash on one side of my neck, because my left arm wasn’t holding onto the steering wheel. And my old VW van had mirrored windows in back, because those suckered were ovens in the sun without.
      So for Candy Grandpre, tactics and triggers are everything that is not either giving her money, food, or praise.

  5. So Bryan’s back on the VA campus in Santa Monica.

    Here’s the kicker, they didn’t even realize he was gone. Yes, I remember Bryan telling someone he was going to the airport but I think it was the middle of the night and maybe the night staff are incompetent at relaying messages to the people who keep track of these things.

    At least Bryan still seems to have his cabin, perhaps not the most luxurious of accommodations but it’s clean and he seems to have a modicum of privacy and he can still make the appointment that he had later this week.

    Assuming Bryan really does have a problem with his heart, I think it’s far better for him to stay in one place while seeking treatment than it is to put more strain on his heart with the stress from hopping from airport to airport and hostel to hostel without a clear plan.

    • That’s funny. His wallet is at least a grand lighter and what exactly does he have to show for it? Nothing. Right back to where he started.

    • Bryan thinks that a VA doctor asking “Are you a threat to yourself or anyone else?”, which is a very standard question doctors ask to anyone who they think may be experiencing emotional distress (he was going into detail about how he thinks the supercomputer is zapping him with directed energy weapons), is grounds for a federal lawsuit.

      Also, his cabin not having been reassigned to another veteran (due to the night staff not getting a message through to the day staff) is proof of the conspiracy, even though their incompetence actually worked out in his favor, where he has a private place to sleep without having to apply again. But, I suspect, if the cabin had been reassigned to someone else, he’s also claim that to be proof of the conspiracy, which would be… umm… hyper game theory (but it’s not hyper game theory when he uses it himself, I guess).

      • Something occurred to me, since those cabins at the VA in Santa Monica are basically glorified metal garden sheds anyway (except with a bed, air conditioning, and a couple of outlets), if you think that you’re being zapped by directed energy weapons, wouldn’t a metal cabin be not the worst place to sleep assuming that there is a bit of a Faraday effect?

        • Yeah.

          That reminds me of a time Bryan was in a hostel somewhere in LatAm (Nicaragua?) where he went into the kitchen and tried to wear pots and pans over his head as a form of shielding. He’s since poo-pooed the idea of using metal shielding since clearly no amount of metal is going to protect you from what only exists inside your head.

          I also want to say that there was a time Bryan tried to hide inside a dumpster to shield from the microwaves but I’m not as sure if that was him or another TI / homeless person in a dumpster I’m thinking of.

          He explains that the technology is so sophisticated that it can “adapt” to the shielding. That doesn’t really make any sense (because the metal shielding will have an attenuation effect that attenuates the same amount of RF regardless of what modulation is used, but I digress).

          I probably have the pots and pans video in my collection somewhere, it would be one of his older ones, probably 2012-2014. I literally have thousands of his videos so it makes it difficult to go through them all…

          • >I also want to say that there was a time Bryan tried to hide inside a dumpster to shield from the microwaves but I’m not as sure if that was him or another TI / homeless person in a dumpster I’m thinking of.

            This is probably not what you’re thinking of but Vulcan Wolverine used to sleep in a self-made “enclosure” in his bedroom that involved many different layers of painted corrugated aluminium.

          • >many different layers of painted corrugated aluminium.

            Correcting myself, several layers corrugated steel with aluminium paint.

      • My PCP’s office used to give out a form to all patients that, among other questions, basically asked if you were contemplating suicide. My mom got a new doctor after she moved and she complained about having a similar question directed at her.

        It was a long time ago and I don’t remember the exact phrasing but it wasn’t as legalistic and direct as “are you a threat to yourself or others”, it was more along the lines of “do you feel you have a reason to not continue living your life” or similar.

        It seems to be a semi-standard thing that some of these clinics like to ask patients. I agree it can be off-putting, my mother told me she did not like it and thought it was inappropriate.

        (I don’t think it is, PCPs are sometimes the first place people go when seeking mental health treatment but I can see how some people may feel weird about it).

        Anyway, I digress.

    • Speaking of Kevin and his unextraordinary symptoms that he blames on extraordinary causes, I think I’m seeing the early stages of rosacea on his nose and cheeks in photos and videos that he’s posted over the past few months.

  6. Bryan is threatening to leave the shelter.

    He showed a photo of an appointment (its in the video thumbnail) with “HPACT” that he was given, I’m sure it has to do with this.

    I looked this up and it is basically a group of professionals (medical and social workers) geared towards giving homeless veterans relevant care and trying to cure them of their homelessness. They bill it as both helpful to the veteran and saving the VA money in recurring visits to the ER (looking at you Bryan).

    Anyway, Bryan, if you didn’t mention anything about stalkers and directed energy and simply stuck to your symptoms, i.e. say that you have ringing in your ears (remember, 13% of people have this – it’s common!) and heart problems and its making your life difficult, you’ll likely get unbiased non-judgemental care that doesn’t involve being thrown into the mental ward.

    Then that just leaves you with your paranoia about gangstalkers. Wouldn’t it be better to be paranoid about stalkers and not have those other issues?

  7. Wow….his mouth is really messing with his speech.
    And he still doesn’t really understand hyper game theory.
    The entirety of being in a society is reacting to the things going on around you. Any interactions with another person or entity (used in the legal sense), requires a response. If that response is not based on the interaction, there is no communication and no understanding. IF it was truly a hypergame, Bryan would not realize it was happening. That is one of the differences between regular game theory and hypergame theory. It is uncooperative, because one player is completely clueless.
    As much as I know Bryan is completely clueless about…well, EVERYTHING, if he was truly a player in a hypergame, he wouldn’t be talking about it. His mere mention of it as a tactic being used against him makes his claim null and void. Just like his social life.
    But the teeth thing? It makes him look homeless and unable to care properly for himself. Running away from treatment means he will never get better. His uncooperative attitude toward receiving any care isn’t a game, it’s his life. And so far, he is losing.

    • Yeah, really.

      My thoughts on his fearfulness of talking to the social workers / mental health workers at the VA. I agree that mental health holds are often abused by authorities and that being stuck in one can be unpleasant.

      I doubt he would actually get placed in one just for thinking he’s being followed. I mean, lots of homeless are mentally ill to some degree, he wouldn’t really stand out just because he was a little off in that regard.

      Nonetheless, I think his quality of life is almost certainly going to improve if he were to be thrown in one. I mean, how would it be worse than sleeping on the street and wandering the world aimlessly?

      It’s not likely that they’re going to actually abuse him unless he were to become combative or something. They’re not going to force drugs in you just because you’re delusional about gangstalkers. They’d only force drugs in you if you were doing something crazy like poking your eyeballs out or something that extreme.

      They’re not going to strap him to a table and subject him to medical experiments (this seems to be what he implies would happen, he thinks these psych facilities are full of “cognitive researchers”).

      He’d literally rather be destitute and in the streets than be helped.

    • >But the teeth thing? It makes him look homeless and unable to care properly for himself. Running away from treatment means he will never get better. His uncooperative attitude toward receiving any care isn’t a game, it’s his life. And so far, he is losing.

      Bryan could probably get implants, at least for the missing front teeth, through the VA if he stayed in one place long enough to follow through on an appointment with a VA-covered orthodontist.

  8. Bryan hasn’t commented much but he signed his latest Facebook post from San Diego. I’m guessing he is done with the VA since he’s deathly scared of their HPACT program. I think he’s trespassed from the San Diego VA because of that 2017 incident too.

    Guessing he’s gonna try to buy a car and go back to the lifestyle he had back in 2016-2017.

    (I know there’s a couple of you here who are really looking forward to his presence in the city)

    • He couldn’t afford a used car a few weeks ago before he wasted thousands on airline tickets, I’m not sure he could afford one now.

      Also, no surprise Bryan couldn’t sleep last night because he traded a bed in a clean cabin where he had privacy to an uncomfortable airport floor where he had none. He’s throwing away the best opportunity he had to improve his life that I’ve seen since I first came across his videos almost a decade ago and that’s just sad.

      • Looks like LAX security has cottoned to Bryan’s lollygagging.

        He dates this May 19th even though it was the 20th (and it’s now the 21st in LA as I type this) and I don’t remember him flying from New York this week but, then again, I thought he was in San Diego. Either this is an older video or he’s wasted yet more money on plane tickets, or he’s lying about having come in from New York. Where in the World is Bryantew Sandiego?

  9. Bryan has a minor interaction with San Diego police. Basically they’re wondering why he’s being a vagrant.

    • Bryan is camped out in front of “Old Town Church”. He’s starting to behave like Candy in that he thinks that random cars that aren’t interacting with him in any way are somehow a conspiracy against him.

      • Wasn’t Bryan sleeping outside Old Town Church for a week or so several years ago? Not sure why he’d think sleeping in the open on a hard sidewalk or an alley outside a church is better than a private cabin with a bed beyond “something something Jesus”.

        • Yeah. He’s scared to death of those social workers and counselors at the homeless shelter who want to talk to him about mental health, that’s why.

    • Funny how, when Kevin’s listing the “hard stuff” he thinks his imagined mind control stalkers are on, he neglects to mention meth.

  10. Bryan is at the San Diego Law Library and he’s busy typing up his next round of frivolous litigation. This time against the VA.

    Once we get past Bryan’s internet connectivity issues, we can see he’s naming the VA Hospital in San Diego and in Los Angeles as defendants. The video quality on my end is rather poor so it’s tough to read but he’s accusing the medical staff in engaging in “medical cointelpro”.

    He’s continuing to lie about his physical abilities as far as being able to work goes (I wonder if I should file an amicus brief with the court showing Bryan’s antics and his admitting to disability fraud…)

    He’s asking for $1,000,000 in damages. I’m certain he knows he won’t get a dime, it’s just performative legal frivolity so he can satisfy his demented psychological need to “document” the supposed conspiracy against him.

    BTW: I saw a document in Bryan’s OneDrive called “IRAN LAWSUIT”. Wonder what that’s about?
