Following the Rat Lines of Source Journalism through The Fog of Disinformation

On August 25, 2017 the Alex Jones Channel featured Roger Stone and Douglas Hagmann in a video called Emergency:  Democrat Plan to Kill Cops and Overthrow Government Discovered. This wild headline highlights the extent that the major players in the Alternative News Media  will go to flee the phantoms which they created, and might just be held accountable for, by their adversaries.

Roger Stone, is notorious for his dirty tricks as a Republican/Libertarian  political operative, who was deeply involved in several presidential election campaigns.  He has been on the Alex Jones show several times, and at least once this year on the Hagmann Report.   Both Alex Jones and Douglas Hagmann are noted for their dependence on anonymous, as well as public, Insider sources for their breaking news stories, whether the subject matter concerns government actions, financial markets, or politics.

In developing today’s theme on the Alternative News Media Rat Lines linked to the so called Deep State, our foundational question is, what is Source Journalism? And how does that compare to old fashioned investigative journalism where the reporter receives information gained from one-on-one questioning of original sources?

Let us turn to Canadian journalist Barrie Zwicker, who published in June 2006 (New Society Publishers), Towers of Deception:  The Media Cover-Up of 9/11.  Zwicker, on page 169,  in a Chapter 4 paragraph heading,  A Journalist Whose Personal Research Department is the Spy Establishment, uses writer Stewart Bell as his example.  Barrie Zwicker states, “The single most noticeable characteristic of Bell’s journalism is its dependence on spooks as sources.  He has somehow, as the dust jacket of his book says, come into possession of a “a vast collection of classified intelligence documents.”  Bell himself says it “may be the largest collection outside of government.”  How does a person on “the outside” get all of this stuff?  In effect, the spy establishment is his personal research department.”

Zwicker continues,  Bell  “augments his files regularly from ‘exclusive interviews with senior Canadian counter-terrorism officials’.  Exclusive means they’re feeding him and not other reporters.  The situation here is what is sometimes called Source Journalism.  Walter Karp wrote in Harper’s magazine in 1989:  “It is a bitter irony of source journalism that the most esteemed journalists are precisely the most servile.  For it is by making themselves useful to the powerful that they gain access to the ‘best’ sources.”

Apparently, this is a widespread situation in Main Stream Media, for Zwicker on page 141, quotes William Colby, former director of the CIA as stating, “The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”  But does this apply to the major players in the Alternative News Media, which are always valuing themselves as a cut above others, when it comes to ethics and telling the truth?

Examples of Source Journalism in the Alternative News Media include not just Alex Jones with his covert military insider news leaks, or George Webb with his insider source who led him to believe that a dirty bomb might be on board the Maersk Memphis ship. We must also add to this list, a Christian Truther,  Douglas Hagmann,  who built his investigative reporter reputation upon insider sources  such as Rosebud, W the Intelligence Insider, and the false credentials of V-the Guerrilla Economist.  So why would any journalist who claimed to have integrity take the side of a dirty tricks political operative, such as Roger Stone when government officials want to question his actions?

Roger Stone, was granted a short half hour interview on the March 24, 2017 edition of The Hagmann Report, “Battle Ready:  Faith Goldy, Roger Stone and Kevin Shipp”.  As Hagmann awaited his guest to call in, this introduction was given:  (1:03:48) “…Roger Stone, you know he’s been in the news lately and in case you haven’t heard, he’s a little busy at the moment juggling plates uhm I, I read a, an interesting story about Roger and I didn’t know this but back when he was in first grade ah um he uh, I think I may have it here, hmm he was uh doing-involved with politics back in the first grade.  Uh he uh he convinced his first grade class to uh vote against Nixon, I think he did, despite the fact that he later worked for Richard Nixon, but um uh by convincing students that if they didn’t vote against Nixon, or by not voting for Nixon, that the school would be on Saturday.  I mean…uh, it’s just an incredible story.  His life, it’s an incredible life, an incredible journey.  And we know right now that the Deep State has declared war on him.(1:04.48)….(1:05:49)..this man has been set up so-he’s been set up…”

Roger Stone is known for having set many other people up. So why should anyone care whether this guy is “being set-up”, unless one feels a kindred spirit with him? He has always prided himself in serving the Deep State, using the most unethical means.   Stone is not above making the anonymous threatening phone call if needed, as noted in this screenshot from the New Yorker.  Note that despite Donald Trump’s disapproval of Stone’s behavior, he had no problem entering into a working relationship with him years later, when he decided to campaign for President of the United States.

New Yorker article on the Dirty Trickster, dated June 2, 2008

If you are unfamiliar with the vast number of stories on Roger Stone, it is advisable to spend some time on the internet, acquainting yourself with the fascinating and at times,  vulgar details.

A good commentary on Stone which has many links to other sources is italkyoubored.wordpress.com. The author, who appears to want to remain anonymous, but may use the pen name F. Fred Palakon, a fictional character in a novel, published a ten part series in 2014,  called Roger Stone: Pretty Reckless Is Going Straight To Hell.  The author is very clearly a good writer and researcher,  documenting his sources thoroughly.

One of Stone’s websites is called Who Framed Roger Stone? At this website, poor persecuted Roger Stone, whose bad karma chickens are returning to roost in his highly expensive hair plugs, wants donations for his legal defense. This link also displays a copy of the lawsuit filed against President Trump and Roger Stone by 3 persons connected with the DNC, who had their personal information revealed when a hacker gave their emails to WikiLeaks.

When I looked at Roger Stone’s YouTube Account, his related accounts were interesting.  You may have guessed that he would display the Alex Jones channel, but he also shows Ask Larry Nichols, you know, that Clinton “hitman” from the good old days in Arkansas, back when Mena Airport was overrun by the CIA and drug runners.  Why not Ask Larry Nichols how to undo your bad karma, Roger?I have no clue if Roger Stone is linked to Russian rat lines.  Perhaps for once in his life, he is innocent of the charges recently leveled against him. However, after reviewing Stone’s life, and the amount of money which his crooked behavior got him, all the while wearing his infamous vertical pinstriped suits, perhaps it is time for his tailor to start measuring him for the horizontal striped suits that could become his new insignia.

For a number of years, Roger Stone was a partner in the lobbyist/political counseling firm of Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly (BMS&K).  Here is a snippet of a 1989 Washington Post article on the clients which this firm represented.  If you read the current lawsuit against Trump and Stone which is linked in the Who Framed Roger Stone? website  above, you will note that Manafort’s name is mentioned.

As I was considering this lawsuit, and the charges of working with Russian operatives to impact the 2016 election, I came across an interesting website with a 32 page pdf  called Black Friday Report:  On Russian Propaganda Network Mapping, published November 26, 2016.  The contributors to this project call it PropOrNot, meaning, Is It Propaganda or Not? 

Two of their charts caught my eye, where they were tracking zerohedge.com as an example of their methods.  I noted that it lists stevequayle.com. along with other Alternative News Media websites which I am familiar with.This other chart reflects a different way of illustrating relationships, but also includes stevequayle.com. on their sites identified as disinformation.

This pdf is interesting to read through in its entirety,  in that it describes exactly what standards they used to analyze websites which have mimicked the Russian propaganda line in their news reporting, sometimes word for word.

I wish that more websites such as this named their contributors; however, one can review and test the guidelines and methods they used to verify that their conclusions are valid. I have linked to some long pdfs in this post, so perhaps the reader may wish to read them as a rainy day project.  Personally I hate politics, and the last time I read extensively on this topic was back when Watergate had been exposed. However, given the fears which some have regarding the present freedoms of the internet being restricted, it may be time to take a closer look at the real impact which Source Journalism has had in distorting accurate news reporting.

Interpreting The Dark Sentences of Tengri 137

And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.  Daniel 8:23

In the Old Testament the terms dark sentences or hard sentences referred to proverbs or riddles; what we might think of as puzzles, conundrums, or difficult questions.  And in the latter days, one of the characteristics of the Antichrist will be his ability to understand or interpret dark sentences.

A modern-day version of crypto language/mathematical puzzles is that of Tengri 137 or Cicada 3301, which have been promoted by Defango and others. Rebekah Roth, the author of three fictional books, Methodical Illusion, Methodical Deception and Methodical Conclusion, views 9/11 as a solvable puzzle, and she uses that motif on her book covers.  Recently she mailed Defango a copy of each of her novels, assuring him that her fictional writings were based on real documentation.  On  June 27, 2017, Defango thanked Roth for her gift in a short video.

Wearing his cool black pirate skull-cap, Defango holds up Rebekah Roth’s letter. He filmed this short video in Aquarium Mode, so that he appears to be immersed in deep waters.

Both Defango and Rebekah Roth claim to have special abilities to see patterns and understand puzzles which arose after having experienced physical traumas in their youth.  Defango read the following letter to his viewers:

From the Desk of Rebekah Roth:  Defango, I understand you like puzzles.  So do I. My favorite puzzle was 9/11.  After I discovered some of the hijackers were still alive.  I hope you will take the time to sit back and enjoy “your flight”.  Keep in mind that all of the 9/11 information you will read is real and documented.  The rest of the story is delivered in a novel of fiction based on facts.  You keep soaring and using your blocking options for trolls, it works great.  Don’t ever let them derail you.  Soar with eagles, as we say in the business.  Leave the turkeys on the ground where they belong.  There isn’t a puzzle that can’t be figured out, but remember when you do get all the pieces together, there will be those who will want to attack everything about you from your job to your hair, so maybe it’s a good thing you’ve shaved your head.  Always stand in the truth, even if you’re the last one standing.  Rebekah Roth  P.S.  George Webb has no interest in ATB or FOIA data or 9/11.  LOL

Cicada 3301 Spear:  according to Dave Acton, Defango is the Tip of the Spear

Although Defango claims that his main interest is solving cryptic online puzzles on his Youtube channel, in the past couple of months his videos showcased his dramatic clashes with Jason Goodman, Trish Negron, Nathan Stolpman,  doxxers, crowdstalkers, and litigation threats from Dave Acton.  At one point the litigation threat was assuaged as Defango made peace with Dave Acton, the self-proclaimed Incident Manager, who then made him his Operations Sections Chief. Montagraph, by being in charge of intel and plans, completed this triangle.

If we label  George Webb as Thesis, and  Dave Acton as Antithesis, we can see that Defango’s clashes with both parties, resulted in him representing Synthesis. Synthesis is the union of opposing principles, and presumably represents a higher principle in dialectics.  As a side note, I notice that links to Montagraph’s YouTube channel among several in this group are missing, thus associations are either being dissolved, reformed, or hidden.  The question which arose from this drama which had played out over several YouTube channels, is what was Defango’s real relationship with the whole?  Was he merely the besieged innocent bystander caught in a brawl, or is he a major player in an Illusionist’s con game?

Presently, Defango and two of his friends are driving to see the August 21, 2017 total eclipse in Oregon, which is not very far north of Dave Acton’s Mount Shasta, California home. An interesting rumor, according to bibliotechapleyades.net  is that Mount Shasta is where  underground facilities are established for the Monarch program “that makes people think they are in communication with aliens”.  It is claimed that “this facility is for torturing and reprogramming captured runaway Monarch slaves, and that  people are brought here via helicopter, plane or flying saucer…It is a remote wooded area.  It is heavily guarded, has fences, and a large contingent of black helicopters.” This rumor is notable in that it was thought that Tengri 137 were aliens communicating with the human race, and certainly,  the “reprogramming” of the mind is a primary goal of their cryptic writings.

Mount Shasta territory is a  beautiful part of the northern California/ southern Oregon forests,  where most recently Dave Acton  has declared himself to be the Incident Commander in charge of the potential breakaway nation/state of Jefferson.  He is convinced that Civil War is about to begin, as shown below:

Dave Acton is preparing for Civil War, and he is the acting Incident Commander for a new nation/state to arise in the Oregon/California region

Defango promoted and worked on the Tengri 137 puzzle, but later speculated that it might be the creation of Mossad.  The winner of this game, as the Chosen One, gets to receive the key to their library. Tengri 137 said that the winner would stay hidden, so we do not know for sure if Defango is now a Chosen One.

And so we have this strange scenario of  Defango, holder of the Cicada 3301 spear,  interpreter of Tengri 137, making his way up the Pacific Coastal states to see a total eclipse of the sun on August 21st, after he has passed by the Mount Shasta area where the underground bunker housing the Monarch slaves reprogramming center “is”, as well as Dave Acton’s place where he sits in his refitted vehicle, proclaiming himself Incident Commander of the state of Jefferson. This Twilight Zone of the Alternative News Media Youtuber Universe is as bizarre as it can get.

DEFANGO: Divine Energy Flowing Absolutely Never Going Out

Manuel Chavez III, the easily entrapped Synthesis adult/juvenile boy,  calls himself Defango, short for  Divine Energy Flowing Absolutely Never Going Out.  This man-child is told by his new mentor,  Rebekah Roth, Always stand in the truth, even if you’re the last one standing.

Like Rebekah Roth, Defango is an illusionist. Nothing ever seems quite real in either of their worlds.  Illusionists never stand in the truth.  They do however, trod it under their feet, in order to project falsehoods.   So what is this last one standing imagery? A Duel to the Death to Kill Off Real Truthers?

Manuel Chavez has been noted to reverse Defango to read OGNAFED.  He did this in the case of OHM Wallet, a new cryptocurrency which he promotes,  where he is Website Coordinator and also Reddit Coordinator. Perhaps the reversal of his fake name has to do with not letting it be widely publicized that   Scamadvisor.com is claiming that OHM Wallet redirects to a porn site.

Manuel Chavez III claims that he is “a 5th Dimensional being helping the people to find purpose in the world.  I’m an Avid Space Pirate, Underground Music Mogul, Spiritual Gangster, Love Bringer, Agnostic Hacker, Time-Lord, and Chef.  I love Humanity and everything that comes with it.”  On his Facebook he has some comments about his relationships that are insightful, perhaps touching, if it were not for the fact that he is getting too old to be the weed smoking immature brat that he displays in his videos.

The problem with some of his statements about wanting marriage and having children, is that all good marriages require a heart preparation, long before the day-to-day realities set in.  And as Defango, Manuel Chavez is rapidly entrenching himself in bad habits which would destroy the long-term relations he potentially could have with a wife and children.

Sooner or later, the invisible realities of the God who created mankind, begin to reveal the truth of the judgments which agnostics thought that they could ignore.  Luke 16:10   He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much:  and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.

Tengri 137 is an online cryptic puzzle, which Defango produced a number of videos on, to promote his reputation as a man who can interpret mathematically based riddles.  So with Luke 16:10 in mind, let us take a look at Tengri 137 to see what ideas are promoted, and whether Defango stands in the truth.

I was glancing over the mathematic challenges of Tengri 137, since they are introduced  to lead the puzzle solver to prove Tengri 137’s claim that they are the one who said, “I AM THAT I AM.  THIS IS MY NAME FOR EVER, AND THIS IS MY MEMORIAL UNTO ALL GENERATIONS”. Tengri 137 adds, “Our name is a calculation to a number which provide a proof for our existence”.  (I am not sure if Tengri 137 speaks Pidgin English, or that is the dialect of the Interpreter.)

Tengri says, “Here is wisdom.  Before we give you this ultimate proof you should understand our knowledge in the mathematics and our logic.  As a sign for our wisdom we give you some cubes.”

These cubes are 3x3x3 “magic” cubes presumably totaling 666.

I found an interesting video on this part of the puzzle, at vid.me called Tengri 137 Part I:  “Magic” Cubes Calculator and Linear Algebra Matrix Tutorial.  I see that more videos were done on the other math problems presented by Tengri 137, as well.  Here is what the Presenter of this video stated:

The above description states in part, “One of the mathematical objects that is being claimed as being doing by higher beings include what some commentators are referring to as “magic cubes”, even going so far as claiming they are “perfect magic cubes”.  Ed, from The Outer Dark, references a Youtuber known as Defango which many view as very knowledgeable about the mathematics behind Tengri 137.  Defango claims that these cubes are indeed special and that only advanced lifeforms could have made them….it is very clear that not only are the Tengri cubes NOT perfect, they are not even classified as Magic…Also a perfect magic cube is not even possible for a 3x3x3 cube, so I believe Defango may be making up claims.  It is also important to note that the Tengrifiles never claimed that the cubes were magic, only commentators and translators have made those claims”.

In short, the mathematics of Tengri 137 are suspect, and the interpreter Defango, is not proficient in solving mathematical puzzles, but he has made claims which are beyond even what Tengri 137, the puzzle maker states.  Is this a man who stands in the truth?

Tengri 137 is a blasphemer in the worst sense of the word, claiming that their name relates to that of Jehovah, the I AM THAT I AM, and also that they gave mankind the Scriptures.  In the first page, second paragraph Tengri 137 says, “Your faith will weaken you, everything what you believe in, you must forget now.  Believing is not knowing…”

This overlooks Hebrews 11:1 which defines faith.  Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith is characterized by substance and evidence.  It is not blind obedience, and without a foundation in the reality of our existence.  Several scriptures state that the just shall live by faith.  And of course, faith in the Scriptures is in the Holy God who is above all, who created mankind, and who is the WORD, and also the author of the words found in the Scriptures.

Tengri 137 makes use of cubes that supposedly add up to 666, the number of the beast, the Antichrist, the Son of Perdition, who is given his seat of authority by Satan.  In the final problem presented by Tengri 137, it claims that this exercise will open a region of the brain.  The final sentence states, “The reformatting of the brain cannot be reversed”.  I assume this means that the person has in essence taken the mark of 666, by following Tengri 137’s instructions in completing the entire puzzle.

Tengri 137 is correct that taking the mark of 666 will be irrevocable. Revelation 14:9-11 states, And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb; and their smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever:  and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

By playing the Court Jester with important truths, Defango is neither a lover of humanity, nor a leader who can help others achieve purpose in life.  He says he believes in karma. What is the karma of a Double Minded Man who is the Synthesis of the Union of Opposing Principles?  James 1:8 replies, A double minded man is unstable in all of his ways.  

Matthew 6:22-24 says, The light of the body is the eye:  if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.  But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.  If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!  No man can serve two masters:  for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other.  Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Tengri 137 is a Deceiver, and it’s Interpreters are Mockers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tracking The Wild Bore: Evidence Preservation On The Face of It

Snuffling around: Behind the Face of the Evidence Preservation Analyst is one big boar, or should we say bore…let the temperature rise a degree or two and the evidence will melt away

On July 20, 2017 I posted Trapped In A RICO Chamber, noting first that a Suspicious Activity Report prepared for the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre had been written by  Dave Sweigert and published online, featuring his findings against James de la Boursodiere AKA Chinada3.  I was amused that one of the submissions of evidence dealt with some doves which were seen in a home YouTube video, deemed by Sweigert to be a health hazard to the surrounding area of Brossard.   Reference was also made to the alleged implication of his subject in “several grand thefts occurring in the United States” involving “alleged deceptive collection of wire fraud funds” based on complaints made to Ripoff Reports.com.

So who is this Chinada3, who has had various and sundry videos removed from YouTube by Dave Sweigert?   A June 18, 2017 submission to VOAT.co by Chinada3 gives insight into a possible prior history of comment exchanges between himself and Dave Acton aka Dave Sweigert.  I am not sure how far back their first contacts with each other goes, or what started this adversarial relationship, but at this point Dave Sweigert is displaying the Litigator aspect of his personality.

Chinada3

Chinada3 says in the above comment, “If you look into Dave Acton on YouTube you can see he has been manipulating YTcreators behind the scenes as a troll for about 6 years or since 2011, during Sandy Hook he also humiliated people who made videos about the Fakery”.   He goes on to say that “dave(sp) primary role on youtube is a channel stalker”.   Chinada3 gives a link to a Ripoff Report complaint which references his Canadian father’s legal  trademark in the USA,  plus other internet links which tie in with his comments.

In response to these comments, a letter to the CEO of VOAT Inc. was written and published online by Dave Sweigert, M.Sci. Evidence Preservation Analyst and Expert Witness.The subject line of this undated letter is VOAT user “Chinada3, and the first line states,  “This is your pre-litigation spoliation notice to preserve and safely archive all documents, electronic evidence and other artifacts associated with the subject VOAT user account.  As you are well aware, this includes logs of audit trails, registration information for the account holder, access and authentication times, traffic and visitor logs, etc.  In short, all electronic evidence (files, messages, etc.) created as part of the subject’s account”.

Dave Sweigert advises that “the subject has been named as a defendant in a wire fraud and racketeering lawsuit alleging crowd-stalking activity in violation of several federal and state civil and/or criminal laws”.  The last paragraph of this letter is highlighted WARNING TO OFFICERS OF VOAT, and states, “You are hereby WARNED that VOAT,INC. may be identified as a primary defendant in a wire fraud and racketeering lawsuit, with the subject listed as a co-defendant.  It is a prudent and wise action to DELETE this account and remove all offending unfounded and meritless entries posted by the subject.  In the alternative, VOAT,INC. should expect litigation in this matter.”

It should be noted that Dave Sweigert had not dated this letter, and there is no proof shown in the public domain that this letter was sent. In fact, the copy which I have quoted has a marking across it, indicating it was on hold.  This leads to an interesting question in regard to the sentence which includes this phrase describing James de la Boursodiere being “named as a defendant in a wire fraud and racketeering lawsuit”.  Using my PACER account, I do not see that a lawsuit has yet to be filed in Federal Court.

And again, as this blog has noted before,  it is a strange act on Sweigert’s part to publish in the public domain  a draft of a letter involving intent to sue, but using language which leaves the reader wondering if a lawsuit had already been filed. I do not know if his targets have personally received a formal letter at their home addresses stating his pre-litigation intentions to file a lawsuit.  The public impression that is left, is that a not-so-amusing game is being played, as Sweigert publishes various documents and videos in the public domain, and then shortly thereafter, removes them.

Here Sweigert mentions in his letter to VOAT,  the specific sentences in the VOAT/Chinada3 comment thread, which concerned him the most.

Towards the end of his letter he denies all of the allegations in their entirety, describing them as “falsehoods, misrepresentations and slanderous material” and “directed at injuring the person and career of the undersigned.  Personal information has been revealed with a directed call-to-action to harass the undersigned.  Unfounded, meritless, and frivolous accusations concerning “cyber-stalking” are made by the subject and hereby DENIED in their entirety.”  What Sweigert does not detail in his letter to VOAT is the Suspicious Activity Report which he had prepared for Canadian officials, and which I first noticed on his slideshare account on June 17, 2017, the day prior to the date of Chinada3’s VOAT comments.  Context is always an important factor to consider in any controversy.

OK, so let us return to the Suspicious Activity Report which was created by Sweigert on James de la Boursodiere AKA Chinada3.  In this document, which I have no proof that it was ever sent, only that it was published for a time on the internet, we see a reference to the “alleged deceptive collection of wire frauds”, based on two complaints on Ripoff Report.com. I found 3, so we will consider the third one also, especially since Chinada3 linked to it in his VOAT comment. The real estate complaints were also found on other similar type websites, compounding the problem if these are false reports.

The first report noted, #1317341, says that this report was filed under Dog Breeders,  by TrowBoyd of Santa Monica, CA on July 17, 2016.  It targets James de la Boursodiere, and gives a partial USA address and the webpage cowboyd.ca.  The comment states, “James de la Boursodiere was odd but took him as a caring Breeder.  Not everyone can devote their lives to animals.  he seemed genuine, enough and the pics and videos of puppies were beautiful.  After a couple of weeks I sent him $4,000 and had my assistant pick up my soon to be my beautiful Bullmastiff pups.  Unfortunately, the puppies were Labradore mixes with shepered or something and James de la Boursodiere would not answer the phone, replace my $4,000 or exchange the pups for the Bullmastiffs I paid for.  AVOID THIS WEIRDO AT ALL COSTS!”

This comment offers information which is so ludicrous, that one hates to even analyze the falsity of it.  First of all, Sweigert lists this report under “alleged deceptive collection of wire fraud funds”.  There is nothing in this comment that specifies that the $4,000 was sent via wire or any other type of payment method.

The Ripoff Report complaint references a Canadian website, but gives a partial USA address.  Fraudulent internet communications fall under the category of wire fraud, but this complaint does not provide any evidence to prove that any part of this transaction actually took place.  One wonders why some  person in California who cannot spell basic words, but manages to get a long name spelled correctly, would want to purchase dogs from the other side of the continent.  The subject of this complaint, who originates from Quebec,  appears to reside in Florida. There is no realism in this complaint scenario, whatsoever.

The Second Ripoff Report #1314072 was submitted on June 28, 2016 by Burnt Toast of Calabasas, CA and gives a business address in Naples, FL for Cowboyd Realtors/Sun Realty. The headline reads, James de la Boursodiere Jamie, Chinada3, Cowboyd Realties, Sun Realty Scam Real Estate Fraud SWITCH-A-ROO BAIT AND SWITCH Naples Florida.

Burnt Toast, who claims familiarity with the online aliases of James de la Boursodiere, but does not state their own legal name,  states, “Cowboyd aka Jamesdelab1 aka chinada3 aka Chinada Unstoppable aka Sun Realty advertises properties and services that are VERY appealing.  Unfortunately, the sweet promises are nothing but lies!  I lost $785,000 on this bogus front of a company.  They work out of Naples, Florida and supposedly from Canada.  My money went into escrow and this guy “Cowboyd” or “Boyd” with his BIG HOKEY cowbiy hat and huge grin vanished once money was in escrow.  the property was not on the up and up.  AVOID THIS AT ALL COSTS!!!”

Where have I just read in all caps, AVOID THIS ___AT ALL COSTS!  Could it be that we are dealing with the same writer who filed the dog complaint?  Now for some reason, which we might be able to guess, Dave Sweigert does not reference the other Realtor complaint, #1314089 which was also lodged against the business, Cowboyd, at the same Florida address.  The Complainant on this other Realtor complaint, Art Jennings of Fort Lauderdale, FL submitted his report June 28, 2016, THE SAME DAY as complaint # 1314072 by Burnt Toast.  This other report has a rebuttal, proclaiming it to be a bunch of malicious lies.

Perhaps Sweigert did not list this other Realtor complaint in the Suspicious Activity Report so that the Canadian Anti-Fraud Division would not wonder about the odd coincidence that two Realtor complaints were filed the same day, when no other complaints are on record against this target whatsoever.

The “unmentioned” complaint (#1314089) states, “Found Boyd and his “son” James online during the finalization of my divorce and relocation.  They were hospitable, even charming.  They showed me many properties in Florida and even a few in Quebec.  They are lovers, I’m certain of it.  Found an Apartment building for a great price and all seemed almost too easy, and it was.  Sale went thru, $565,444 in escrow pending health dep final approval and code city approval for remodel.  Calls stopped being returned and after a month of getting no straight answers I went down to the office at Sun Realty and they were GONE.  Vanished!  money gone unless the police can recover it.  Learn from my naivete. These jokers are conmen.”

There were two rebuttals as shown below:I looked up the Canadian company, and also Sun Realty USA, which is owned by a different person from the father of James de la Boursodiere. Both these businesses have a stable history, and there is no indication that anyone has vanished or could not be reached.

Again, the stories are improbable scenarios.  Anyone who has cash in the six digit range would most likely be an astute business minded person who would not depart from standard real estate procedures for closing a sale.  Additionally, if this were not a straight cash sale,  no finance company is going to fund a real estate transaction until all the paperwork is in order, as arranged by a bonded title company.

And if there had been such an actual fraud, the loser of such enormous amounts of money would be pursuing the realtors with criminal and civil complaints.  I could not locate in the public domain of online information anything to substantiate that such crimes had a basis in reality. The reports filed with Ripoff Reports would appear to be acts of defamation, which give rise to the question as to who submitted these complaints  in the first place?

As we can see, many allegations which are made by one party against another, when examined using common sense, melt like snow in a spring thaw.

 

 

RICO Alchemy: Turning Monetized Youtubers into Treble Damages Gangstas

It would be easy for me to ignore all of the drama which has played out between the Sweigert brothers, AKA George Webb and Dave Acton, and that of Defango, Nathan Stolpman, and others. But…there is one aspect of this story that causes me to camp out in this neck of the woods a little longer.

I want to know what the legal theory and evidence is, behind  Dave Sweigert’s threats of a RICO lawsuit against a  few YouTubers and most likely,  the deeper pockets of YouTube and Patreon.  If Sweigert did not have an extensive history of filing as a Pro Se Plaintiff in Federal courts, I might saunter away, on the assumption that he was probably not serious in his threats. However,  because of his past history, this story bears watching.

There are interesting questions which arise from the potential use of RICO laws against persons who are only loosely associated through online social media. And then there is the monetary motive that Sweigert feels is critical to his argument against Youtubing crowdstalkers, which can be derived from having a Youtube channel that allows advertising. I feel inclined to point out that there are monetary benefits from filing a successful civil RICO case, in the form of treble damages.

The backstory of what I have viewed in the public domain, has no doubt hidden undercurrents, documents which are not accessible, and behind the scenes conversations which have taken place.  Much of this situation could have been kept entirely private, but for the fact that Dave Acton/Sweigert has published documents and videos and made comments on other YouTube channels, Twitter, etc. Some of his words and documents he has pulled from the public domain after being witnessed by many persons not party to his private affairs.  The game he is playing is a strange one; possibly one that suggests a form of  entrapment through legal sophistry.

So what  are the various options in which conflicts can be resolved, apart from criminal and civil law proceedings?  What are the elements of a RICO lawsuit that must exist for a case to be even accepted into the law courts?  I am not an attorney and do not understand legal theory in depth, nor legal procedures.  Yet because I am an American citizen, having a layman’s common sense understanding of law, I can view  the facts and evidence which have been presented in the public domain, and form an opinion which can withstand logical scrutiny.

As stated in previous posts, my attention was first drawn to various Youtubers, because of their commentaries on the Maersk Memphis dirty bomb incident on June 14, 2017.  About that time, I began to follow Bravo Von Muller’s video commentaries.  Through him, I became aware that prior to this event, there had arisen a discussion on the true identity of Dave Acton, and that of George Webb.

A Pre Litigation Notice?

And like others, Bravo Von Muller has found himself in the fishing net of Dave Acton/Sweigert.  An example of that is found in this video, although there were other similar type communications made and displayed earlier at the Bravo Von Muller YouTube channel. This particular comment shows someone named Dave Sweigert stating, Bravo, …this is your pre litigation notice.  Safeguard all electronic files that you have used in your video productions.

If Bravo Von Muller is ever named as a defendant in a lawsuit by Dave Sweigert, I shall be interested to find out what measures Sweigert took prior to that action,  to explain exactly where and how that Bravo Von Muller had committed defamation or some other action subject to a civil court of law. Bravo von Muller has pointed out that he has no assets, and I cannot see how he can be drawn into the gangsta group which Sweigert is forming through some legal theory of his.

So what is Sweigert trying to achieve? A chilling of free speech?  Bravo Von Muller has admitted that he receives the grand sum of about $160 a month from his YouTube channel.  Perhaps Sweigert desires to be the cause of the loss of this source of supplemental income for this former Air Force man from the 1980’s, who later became a Las Vegas gambler and casino dealer.  Bravo Von Muller has a right to speak his own views and to make his personal commentary public on matters which are in the public domain. I note that he allows derogatory comments from others about him to be published on his YouTube channel. In other words, Bravo Von Muller has not attempted to censor those who oppose him by words, but rather he allows their views to be read.

After the dirty bomb report, numerous persons asked whether this false report which originated with “a conspiracy theorist” might negatively impact the free-for-all world of YouTubing. The answer to that concern would appear to have arrived in the form of Suspicious Activity Reports, Evidence Preservation Letters, Cease and Desist Notices, and Pre Litigation Warnings; all of which come from one source who uses  Twitter, YouTube comments and videos, plus letters sent by the United States Postal Office.

The grouping together of various Youtubers that Sweigert believes can be  prosecuted under the criminal and civils laws of the RICO act,  has the potential to have a chilling effect on free speech, the monetizing of certain internet platforms, and the right of free association to discuss ideas in the public realm.

A Letter to the Attorney General of California Department of Justice

On August 1, 2017, Dave Sweigert wrote to the Attorney General, California Department of Justice to request their assistance.  Sweigert made it understood that the District Attorney of San Luis Obispo (SLO) County had failed to comprehend the application of Article I Declaration of Rights [Section 1-Sec. 32] and the California Penal Code Section 646.9 to the complaints which he had filed against Nathan Stolpman of the Lift The Veil YouTube channel.

The Declaration of Rights deals with this California Constitutional statement:  All people are by nature free and independent and have inalienable rights.  Among these are enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and pursuing and obtaining safety, happiness, and privacy. And Section 646.9 defines harassment, credible threats, and the crime of stalking.

Sweigert tells the Attorney General that an individual in SLO county “maintains a worldwide network of crowd stalking associates that receive calls to action via Livestream broadcasts on YouTube and videos on  Patreon to target the private citizens of California.  The individual is known as:  NATHAN AMES STOLPMAN, age 38″.

He claims that Mr. Stolpman is involved in crowd stalking, that he is ” handsomely rewarded via financial incentives”, and that he encourages “a call to action to ‘take care of’ or ‘visit’ the victim.  He also states that “Mr. Stolpman is fond of issuing ‘bounties’ for photographs of his targeted individuals.  By providing the intended whereabouts of the victim, a call to action is issued to intercept the individual for unwanted photography and other harassment.”

With regard to this and other such letters of complaint, I have no issue with Dave Sweigert freely exercising any of his rights at any time.  The only thing which I would object to, is if his facts are incorrect and his arguments misleading, so that he has not fairly represented the situation.

Two letters sent to the parents of Nathan Stolpman

Days earlier, Dave Sweigert had sent two letters to the residential address of Nathan Stolpman, who apparently resides in the garage. One of these letters, dated July 20, 2017 is addressed to Pamela J. Stolpman, who is Nathan Stolpman’s mother. When I looked up her name on the internet, it is readily apparent that Pamela Stolpman died a couple of years ago.  It appears that the second letter was addressed to Nathan’s father, who is the owner of the home.

Envelope of letter sent to Nathan’s deceased mother from Fort Meade Army base with postage of $6.65.  Note that Fort Meade is the location of the United States Cyber Command, and Sweigert has claimed in this letter  that a cyber harassment campaign has been directed at him

The subject line of this letter to the deceased Pamela Stolpman is:  Alleged criminal activity of your son, Nathan Ames Stolpman. He begins by saying, “As you are well aware, your son (Nathan Ames Stolpman) is presently engaged in a long standing cyber harassment campaign directed at me.  I am a private individual that has suffered greatly from your son’s continuous disparaging, slanderous and defaming remarks.  Additionally, he is fond of making videos in my neighborhood in Mount Shasta with his encouragement to ‘meet with him’.  Enough is enough.”  Sweigert quotes California Penal Code Sec. 646.9 (a) and (e), concluding “Your son’s actions are considered by me as threats.”

I won’t criticize Sweigert when he views the actions and words of Nathan Stolpman as threatening, for he is within his rights to express his subjective opinion.  After all, he is the focal point of those videos. But after viewing a number of Lift The Veil videos, my opinion is that Stolpman is a childish showman, much like Dave Acton.  And like Dave Acton aka Dave Sweigert, Nathan also panics if the scrapes he gets himself into with other people goes beyond some invisible boundary.

Unless Nathan Stolpman has a criminal record that I am unaware of, he does not appear to be someone who would physically harm another person.  That his actions might encourage someone else who is dangerous, would be, in my mind, the primary reason that Stolpman needs to rethink his dramatic displays. It must be noted that Nathan Stolpman studied drama at college.  It must also be noted that Dave Acton also did some Hollywood acting on a temporary basis.  One can find something of the mirror imaging of each other in their methods of conflict resolution.  That said, Dave Sweigert is within his rights to initiate action to cause certain acts of Nathan Stolpman  to cease, and I do not take issue with that.

Here is the fly in this ointment, however.  Dave Sweigert has claimed that he lives in California, presumably in the Mount Shasta vicinity.  But the letters which he mailed to Nathan Stolpman’s living father and deceased mother were sent from a post office box from Fort George G. Meade, Maryland.  The Fort Meade location is highlighted on Dave Sweigert’s online resume, although it would appear that he still retains employment in California.  Fort Meade is an Army Base which houses the United States Cyber Command, and the NSA. And of course, given this twilight zone in which we find ourselves,  it is only appropriate that the postage on the envelope was one penny less than $6.66.

So here we have the unfortunate situation that Nathan’s father, who once held a very high government position,  not only receives a threatening letter regarding his adult son’s behavior, but he also receives a separate letter addressed to his deceased wife.

So what does the compassionate Dave Sweigert do on July 25, 2017, just after it is confirmed that the Stolpmans have received his July 20th letter?  Why he files a Report of Suspected Endangerment To A Dependent Adult/Elder which also references a letter he had sent to the Chief of Detectives of SLO on July 24, 2017.

This letter to Victim Services, Elder & Dependent Adult Abuse, complains that Nathan Ames Stolpman, 38, “operates a fake hoax news site with thousands of viewers”, and he brings to their attention that in a certain video, Nathan’s father  appeared “on a live camera show” as he came into the room to discuss legal documents which had been delivered a few minutes earlier.  Sweigert then stresses, “These documents clearly state that the father’s property and home are in legal jeopardy because of the son’s use of the facilities and logistics to support wire fraud activities as defined by Penal Code 646.9, cyber-stalking, for commercial profit (see wire fraud and racketeering).”

Sweigert, in his Elder Abuse letter, also observes that the 72 year old “elder Stolpman appears to be in the care of an extremely unstable, controversial and eccentric YouTube personality who-only last week-abused the processes of the County courts with an unfounded, meritless, frivolous and vexations civil action against a former fan (see attachment to ref: (b)).”  Dave Sweigert then explains to Victim Services that “a wire fraud civil legal action has been iniated(sp) against Nathan Stolpman for alleged slander, defamation, wire fraud and criminal violations of Penal Code 646.9”.  Dave Sweigert signs off with “Warm regards”.

Anyone who watches Lift The Veil sooner or later understands that Nathan Stolpman has confessed to having mental issues, although at one time he was highly functioning in society as a high-end car salesman.  Thus Nathan Stolpman’s father, who is now getting older, and who lost his wife two years ago, and is trying to assist his son who is dealing with some level of mental health issues, finds himself  being threatened by Dave Sweigert that he might lose his house through RICO laws And while Sweigert chastises Nathan for being the primary cause of this trouble, we must note that Sweigert is purposely using tactics to resolve conflict, that will cause the most damage to his targets.

Here are two common sense questions: (1) if Dave Sweigert does not file a lawsuit as he has threatened to do, is he setting himself up to be criminally charged for harassment and the use of intimidation tactics against his adversaries? (2) If he does file a lawsuit, can he expect a  counterclaim involving those same issues?

This whole matter is messy from beginning to end, as there is fault to be found with many of these Youtubers in their presentations, and that includes The Litigator also known as Dave Sweigert. Most likely some of these conflicts could have been ignored, or addressed by a detailed formal letter from Dave Sweigert to individual persons,  wherein he describes exactly what was said that constituted defamation, as the law defines it.

And with regard to the charge of cyber stalking against Stolpman,   I do not know if a judge or a jury would agree with Sweigert  that a credible threat had been made against him.   In fact, it might be that the District Attorney of SLO did not address Dave Sweigert’s complaint in the manner in which Sweigert wanted, because the facts of that situation did not meet the minimum requirements of the law.  I do not know. And it is  now left up to the Attorney General of the California Department of Justice to review this question.

I find it difficult to imagine that a strong, bold, heroic,  self-proclaimed Incident Commander, with Army training,  a survivalist expert  who has put his photos out on the internet via Infowars and Hollywood acting demo websites, would  so tremble in  fear over someone taking his photo at a conference, that he cancelled his own book signing opportunity.  But, the upside to this loss of potential book buyers is that now he can add this complaint to his RICO lawsuit, and command treble damages should he prevail.

Dave Sweigert has published several specialized books, and it seems that he is working on another one.  Below is a copy of the potential cover, front and back. It says, “Dave Sweigert is a modern day General Billy Mitchell, ostracized for demonstrations of the next generation of warfare.  The author brilliantly leads us through the nuances of cyber-attacks…”.

Billy Mitchell was an Army General who is called the “father of the United States Air Force”.  I am not sure whether to rest my case on that book cover statement, or allow Dave Sweigert to rest his case on that comparison. I am virtually conflicted on that one. As we now know,  Dave Sweigert is an expert on winning virtual conflict.
