Loop Holes in Entrapment Laws form a New Entanglement as Privately Funded “Litigation Support” Tricksters manipulate the Scales of Justice

TEKEL;  Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.  Daniel 5:27

Three years ago one of my readers challenged me to read the position paper,  From PSYOP to MindWar:  The Psychology of Victory by Colonel Paul E. Vallely, Commander,  with Major Michael A. Aquino, PSYOP Research & Analysis Team Leader, of the Headquarters, 7th Psychological Operations Group, United States Army Reserve, Presidio of San Francisco, CA, 1980.

As a result, I wrote an article on June 4, 2016,  called The Strength of the Confidence of the City of the Mighty.  One of the points Vallely and Aquino argue is that “The advantage of MindWar is that it conducts wars in nonlethal, noninjurious, and nondestructive ways.  Essentially you overwhelm your enemy with argument.  You seize control of all of the means by which his government and populace process information to make up their minds, and you adjust it so that those minds are made up as you desire.  Everyone is happy, no one gets hurt or killed, and nothing is destroyed.  Ordinary warfare, on the other hand, is characterized by its lack of reason…The only loser in MindWar are the war profiteers…”.

There are a number of fallacies in the justification of MindWar as a non-destructive operation, as essentially a person is manipulated into the position of turning against their own best interests through the use of principles that they believe in.

This form of dictatorship is ruinous of the well being of the most valued members of a free society.

Techniques for Overturning Justice

Steve Outtrim’s #govLarp hypothesis is based on the very real observation that there are many former government employees connected with the Jason Goodman Crowdsource the Truth channel which had publicized and instigated the Port of Charleston incident.

Since the advent of the internet, we live side by side with a cyber-based world which is  utilized by many different interest-based agents to promote subtle mind warfare techniques that work for their own selfish interests, rather than the public good.  Although the presence of former government agents is notable in the Alternative Media, it does not necessarily indicate that a government sponsored operation is in play.  As we shall see below, there is another possibility.

I was interested recently in a footnote of a Washington and Lee Law Review article, (Volume 16-Issue 1) dated March 1, 1959, called   Entrapment Re-Examined By United States Supreme Court.

Foot note 2 states, “According to the federal courts, the entrapping person must be an agent or officer of the government; inducement by a private person does not make the defense available, Polski v. United States, 33 F.2d 686 (8th Cir. 1929), cert. denied 280 U. S. 591 (1929).  However, courts have considered paid informers and those promised immunity to be government agents.  Cratty v. United States, 163 F.2d 844 (D. C. Cir. 1947); Hayes v. United States, 112 F.2d 676 (10th Cir. 1940); Wall v. United States, 65 F.2d 993 (5th Cir.1933).  Cf. Mayer v. United States, 67 F 2d 223 (9th Cir. 1933).

Did you notice the loop hole?

Much ado has been made about the FBI informant activities of the hidden source of the false report that shut down the Port of Charleston on June 14, 2017. It was Susan Luztke aka Queen Tut, who led the way in researching the background of Jason Goodman’s Mr. Hudson, which also was George Webb’s Deep Uranium source.  Lutzke identified that source as being Okey Marshall Richards, the infamous paid informant for the FBI who betrayed his own militia group.  The backstory of Richards can be read in my May 28, 2018 article, The Unusual Telephone Calls of FBI Informant Okey Marshall Richards, Jr.

I am not aware that anyone has proved that Okey Marshall Richards had been employed by the FBI at the time of the Port of Charleston dirty bomb hoax. In other words, Richards could have been employed by a private interest group, and he was known to be a liar throughout his lifetime, who liked to profit monetarily from his lies.

Government versus Privately Funded Covert Operatives 

The loop hole in the law of entrapment, is that such activities are permissible if performed by a private person who is not funded by the government.

One of the distinguishing characteristics of this section of Alternative Media that I have been covering for the past two years, is the sheer bungling and incompetence of the host of characters who have garnered our attention.  From Robert David Steele’s attempts to maneuver a plastic wrapped #UNRIG tax exempt RV across America, to Jason Goodman’s on air rants and straight jacket styled legal imaginations, to Steven S. Biss, the attorney that Judge Lauck criticized for being “unintelligible”,  to Defango’s foul language and use of mind altering drugs to maintain his lifestyle as an unemployable cyber genius, to Queen Tut’s furnishing the court with false documents in lieu of a credible defense, to Jason Goodman hitting Marcus Conte with his pink umbrella…one has to wonder what in the world is going on.

And now what has surfaced is that grand piano player Thomas Schoenberger, who claims to have composed thousands of musical scores, when no one has ever witnessed him playing a piano.

We are not in the land of Gucci, but some kind of Alternative Media flea market where merchandisers peddle cheap plastic counterfeits.  And in the process, real America is being destroyed by these fakers.

The cheap Imitation of Black Cube’s reputation repair business became Shadowbox Strategies

It was Thomas Schoenberger, the persistent manipulator of all those he encounters,  that founded the reputation repair business known as Shadowbox Strategies.  Some of those company documents which revealed fee structures and marketing methods was displayed on Defango TV, as Manuel Chavez, III prepared to send documentation to the attorneys for the Aaron Rich defamation lawsuit.

Black Cube’s main business is to provide litigation support and they make use of the resources of former Mossad and Israeli operatives, to provide quality services to their clients.  One of their clients was Harvey Weinstein who was arrested on May 25, 2018 on rape and sexual misconduct charges, and who was able to be released on one million dollars bail.

A Look at Black Cube’s Contract with Weinstein

Ronon Farrow, who won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize for public service and authored War on Peace:  The End of Diplomacy and the Decline of American Influence, published an article November 6, 2017 with the New Yorker.  Farrow titled it, Harvey Weinstein’s Army of Spies:  The film executive hired private investigators, including ex-Mossad agents, to track actresses and journalists.

Farrow begins, “In the fall of 2016, Harvey Weinstein set out to suppress allegations that he had sexually harassed or assaulted numerous women.  He began to hire private security agencies to collect information on the women and the journalists trying to expose the allegations.”

One of those agencies was “Black Cube, an enterprise run largely by former officers of Mossad and other Israeli intelligence agencies.”  Farrow says, “Two private investigators from Black Cube, using false identities, met with the actress Rose McGowan, who eventually publicly accused Weinstein of rape, to extract information from her.  One of the investigator’s pretended to be a women’s-rights advocate and secretly recorded at least four meetings with McGowan.  The same operative, using a different false identity and implying that she had an allegation against Weinstein, met twice with a journalist to find out which women were talking to the press.”

According to this New Yorker article, “The explicit goal of the investigations, laid out in one contract with Black Cube, signed in July, was to stop the publication of the abuse allegations against Weinstein that eventually emerged in the New York Times and The New Yorker.”

Farrow adds, “Over the course of a year, Weinstein had the agencies “target,” or collect information on, dozens of individuals, and compile psychological profiles that sometimes focused on their personal or sexual histories…In some cases, the investigative effort was run through Weinstein’s lawyers, including David Boies…”

Where have we encountered the issue of Conflict of Interests before?

“Boies personally signed the contract directing Black Cube to attempt to uncover information that would stop the publication of a Times story about Weinstein’s abuses, while his firm was also representing the Times, including in a libel case”.

Further down in Farrow’s article, he writes, “Techniques like the one used by the agencies on Weinstein’s behalf are almost always kept secret, and, because such relationships are often run through law firms, the investigations are theoretically protected by attorney-client privilege, which could prevent them from being disclosed in court.  The documents and sources reveal the tools and tactics available to powerful individuals to suppress negative stories and, in some cases, forestall criminal investigations.”

Success Fees to obstruct the publication of facts

On page 6, Farrow comments on the July contract with Black Cube, noting that several “success fees” would allow the agency to receive “an additional $300,000 if the agency provides intelligence which will directly contribute to the efforts to completely stop the Article from being published at all in any shape or form.”

“The contracts also show some of the techniques that Black Cube employs”.  These included using a “project manager, intelligence analysts, linguists, and ‘Avatar Operators’ specifically hired to create fake identities on social media, as well as ‘operations experts with extensive experience in social engineering’.”  There are other interesting facts and observations which Farrow discusses, and I recommend reading the entire New Yorker article which is linked in a prior paragraph.

Distracting from the real story of underlying relationships  

So let’s get back to what was going on with Crowdsource the Truth around the time of the Port of Charleston dirty bomb incident which caused mainstream media and the general public to turn aside to find out how a YouTube journalist managed to shut down a major U. S. Port for eight hours, and gain new subscribers as a reward.

At that very same time, the Seth Rich story which had been headlined on CSTT, was winding down when Jason Goodman  started accusing Defango of spoofing the files.

Defango was a business associate in 2017 of Shadowbox Strategies, Thomas Schoenberger, Trevor Fitzgibbons and Ed Butowski, and others.  Those former associations are now being looked at in association with the Aaron Rich defamation lawsuit which resulted because of false allegation made in regard to his brother,Seth Rich’s death.

But what most YouTube viewers are seeing now is constant squabbling between Schoenberger and Defango about their past history together.  In the meantime, persons who were acquainted with Thomas Schoenberger and his online puzzles, are publicly discussing his methods of harassing people on the internet.

In the past few days, Abel Danger has featured several videos on Thomas Schoenberger.    Two of those includes the August 9, 2019 YouTube video published by Jethro and the August 11, 2019 video called Jesse’s Full Story Regarding Thomas Schoenberger-Case Study #4.

Both of the above videos are insightful.  Jesse also provides a link to some legal documents and court records on Schoenberger, in addition to his video explanation of what happened to his wife’s mental health after engaging with the online puzzle maker and his gang stalking associates.  It appears that Schoenberger is so manipulative that he impersonated a medical doctor in an attempt to interfere in the treatment of Jesse’s wife.

As usual, it helps to draw back once in awhile to gain a panoramic view of these bizarre interactions on the internet.  Please be cautious always with online strangers who want to inject themselves into your life.  Often it is only hindsight that reveals what the true motives were, and how some of these players are lining their pockets.





Pillow Talk “Mind War Comedian” Leppo Sets Forth Serious Allegations Against Defango; but is he credible or engaging in reckless speech?

Thomas Schoenberger is alleging that Defango and Eliahi Priest have made threats against him, which he considers to be credible.   But why has he presented these allegations on a Comedy channel?  These are serious accusations, and if unfounded, would seem to be actionable in a civil court of law as defamation.

Thomas Schoenberger

Today I am reviewing a video that was published July 28, 2019, on the Pillow Talk YouTube channel as  Defango’s Darkest Secret Exposed, Part 01.

According to Pillow Talk ‘s video description,  “Defango claims he is just a You Tube Content Creator.  We investigated these claims and reached out to investigators in Oz.  This is Part I in our 6 part Elusive Teenage FBI investigation video series.  In addition, we are also reaching out to American police and FBI on the subject of Defango and his questionable shadowy ties to intelligence groups such as Black Cube.”

The owner of the Pillow Talk and Teenage FBI Live You Tube channels calls himself  Leppo,(VaporBat Records Productions) and he has categorized his channels as comedy.  His  subscriber numbers are set on private and therefore Socialblade.com does not offer a statistical analysis history of these two channels.  As a new platform dating from June 7, 2019, it has already accumulated nearly 15,000 views.  One of Leppo’s guests has been Thomas Schoenberger, who has been featured with Frank Bacon, who writes a crypto Sci-Fi novel on Steemit.

The video under review today appears to be a collaboration between Pillow Talk, an anonymous woman presenting herself as an Australian “Inspector” and Thomas Schoenberger, in a joint effort to raise criminal allegations against Defango.

Schoenberger is  known for contacting others, including this blog, Tracking the Leopard Meroz, in an effort to gain sympathy for his version of the personal dispute he has with Manuel Chavez, III aka Defango. Although I have listened to that one-sided version of events, I have declined an invitation to write about that long and tedious internet exchange between these two men.  Based on what I viewed of yesterday’s publication of Defango’s Darkest Secret Exposed, Part 01,  I want to document why I find  that  video to be highly irresponsible in its presentation.

Pillow Talk Owner Leppo

Business Associates

Formerly, Manuel Chavez, III had been briefly involved with Thomas Schoenberger’s company called Shadowbox Strategies, which I discussed in a June 26, 2019 Tracking the Leopard Meroz article called, In The Company of SHADOWBOXers.

In that previous article, I noted some concerning aspects of that former business arrangement, based on my knowledge as a former bank auditor.

Last month, prior to sending some documents requested by the attorneys for the Aaron Rich defamation lawsuit, Defango published images of various Shadowbox documents on his YouTube channel, Defango TV. Like others, I reviewed the contents of those documents and had noted that Shadowbox’s first month fee for its reputation repair services was $40,000. This was a highly expensive service, and for the price, a client would expect to see noticeable results by the end of 30 days.

If this reputation repair business could not produce results in that first month, I noted that situation would raise a red flag in the mind of an auditor, prompting further investigation.  Why would that raise a concern?  Well, if a client does not receive what he has paid for, one has to ask if this is a legitimate business enterprise, especially when the cost is so steep.  Was the client defrauded?  Or was the exorbitant fee for services not delivered just a cover for a money laundering business?  These are questions which auditors routinely ask, and follow through on.

An Anomaly

Thomas Schoenberger created a high priced reputation repair business, and although it is reported to have been a short lived operation,  I have to assume that as the CEO, he considered himself capable of delivering his high priced product to his clientele.  So why would Schoenberger subsequently be asking others for assistance in the “reputation repair” of his own name?

I have suggested to him that he establish a stand-alone blog under his own name, in order to lay out his own story with complete documentation and a timeline which is accurate and comprehensive.  It appears he has not done so; thus it leaves me wondering if Schoenberger prefers to place others in a potential liability position by using their platforms for his story, rather than shouldering that risk by himself.

Does Pillow Talk even comprehend the legal risks he is taking when he produces defamatory content on his own platform, by not adequately backing up his allegations with credible evidence?

A Fair and Balanced Treatment of Internet Issues

By bringing up these questions, I am not siding with Defango, who plays fast and loose with his own video content.  The point I am addressing is the fair treatment of others in the public domain.

I oftentimes  publish links to Steve Outtrim’s Burners.me blog and his CryptoBeast  YouTube channel, in order to provide another viewpoint of the issues which I comment on. Regular readers of this blog know that I disagree with Outtrim’s views on certain topics, and I expect them to weigh all matters by their proper value.

The same goes with regard to Dave Sweigert’s published opinions.  My relationship to him solely rests on the fact that in 2017 I began to post PACER court documents on the Robert David Steele lawsuit.  Since that time, Sweigert has filed documents to the court in that case, and in June of 2018, he filed his own RICO lawsuit, and I have posted the court documents in both cases, as a public service.

Here is a Twitter message which Steve Outtim made on July 28, 2019 referencing the Pillow Talk video Defango’s Darkest Secret Exposed, Part 01.  

So let’s take a look at Defango’s Darkest Secret Exposed, Part I, published July 28, 2019.

The beginning image is presented in silence and we read:

These first words are highly prejudicial and not supported by the short video clip which follows, which is lacking a reference to its context. No explanation is provided which leads the viewer to understand why Defango’s words would represent a real blackmail/extortion threat.

In this 22 second undated and un-sourced video clip, Defango is viewed saying, “Dude, you’re done.  Can I expect that thousand bucks in my bank account?–in my PayPal–by the end of today, and if that thousand bucks is not in the bank and my PayPal at the end of the day, more information will be released.  This time it’s going to be the stuff that shows you doing nasty things to melons and things.”

We are left to wonder if Defango’s words were said in jest, or to be taken seriously.  From what others have explained, the backstory involved some kind of bet between Montagraph and Defango, and the melons reference deals with  a video Montagraph had made years ago.  Recently Montagraph had sued Jake Morphonios for making references to Montagraph’s online reputation, and in reply, Morphonios discussed those past videos.

What follows are several screen shots of Twitter and video comments.  For example, Fin@Solus777 (Thomas Schoenberger) replies to LadyStephC @vaporbatrecords and 10 others, saying:  “As I have maintained repeatedly since May 2018, Defango attempted to extort me and attempted to silence me from exposing that he was working with Ed to illegally wiretap the Rich family.  He said if I did not comply, and pay him, he would “ruin my life”.  His day is coming. (image of scales of justice shown).”

The Pillow Talk video does not show proof to back up this allegation of extortion; nor does it show that Schoenberger had filed a police report.

One of several allegations made against Defango, but posed as a question

The next image is a comment by the anonymous handle jcsgodmother.  She explains, “After the way Defango pointed the finger at TS minutes after the news that Kappy supposedly committed suicide was published, it is hard to regard TS (and gang) as the instigator.  After the way Defango turned on Acton and warmed up to Jason 2 days after that and now Defango is doxing Girltown for no good reason; it seems Defango is the one causing it all.  Defango looks like the instigator.  If you get a protective order against someone, you are not supposed to initiate hostilities against him.  After Defango broadcast his accusations which are difficult (if not impossible) to prove against TS, a judge may refuse to enforce the protective order.”

Jcsgodmother makes some good points, and it appears she has been attempting to follow this ongoing dispute between Schoenberger and Defango.

But here is the difficulty which an impartial observer to this dispute encounters:  in any long running dispute of words, one has to go back to the beginning and see how this all developed.  The context of any particular exchange of words may actually be an extended period of time, and a sample exchange of words will probably not fairly represent the heart of the matter.  My own opinion is that these two men both have serious character faults, and it would have been better for all if both had just avoided contact with each other in the first place, and moved on in life.

At the 1.03 mark, this image is displayed.A male voice, which I believe is that of Leppo, the channel operator, says, “We are joined tonight by a member of a 12-person investigative team looking into Defango or Fandango, and his network and his ties to the DNC, Crowdstrike, David Brock, and Israeli disinfo agents.  Because this investigation includes current and former law enforcement, we have kept their identities private.”

He adds, “Also we are told multiple agencies are involved in investigating Manuel Chavez for gang-stalking, criminal extortion, threats and RICO violations.  Here at VaporBat Records we’ve reached out to local police and FBI field offices.  We did not get responses from those folks, so we reached out to the Wikileaks community and we were put in touch with a task force that includes law enforcement investigators and a journalist, a particular journalist, and tonight we are joined by an Inspector, Victoria, and I know her time is limited so it’s our honor here at VaporBat Records to have this Inspector with us tonight to share information about a Manny Chavez aka Fandango.”

Point No. 1:  Are you serious, Leppo?  Why should we regard your statements as credible when you regard yourself as a Mind War Comedian of PsyOp Parody, and show an icon of a clown face alongside your name. You have classified this show as a comedy.

Point No. 2:  You have listed a number of “ties” which you claim Defango has to different organizations.  Do you know what the post hoc ergo propter hoc logical fallacy is? (“after this, therefore because of this“).  The cartoon below conveys that fallacy in a humorous way to  demonstrate the rule that “correlation does not imply causation“.

If this video does not properly document what it has promised to deliver in Leppo’s  introductory words, then it’s mere “correlation of associations” does not necessarily lead to the conclusion that Defango has engaged in legal misconduct.

If the FBI and other law enforcement and local police have ignored you, perhaps it is because your accusations of gang-stalking, criminal extortion, threats and RICO were unsupported by proof.  And when others claim that these agencies are “looking” at Defango, it does not mean that they can verify that is the actual case or that law enforcement investigators would come to your desired conclusions. In my own experience, federal law enforcement agencies do not disclose their investigations until after an indictment has been formally requested.

Point No. 3:  Let me make my readers absolutely clear on one point.  The journalist which Leppo claims is helping him is NOT me. I don’t know who it is, and why their name is being withheld.  And a task force connected to the Wikileaks community…is a bunch of anonymous law enforcement investigators?  So called “Inspector” Victoria had better be credible, because an impersonation of a law enforcement officer is illegal.

At the 2.35 minute mark, this image is displayed, and “Inspector” Victoria begins speaking.

“Inspector” Victoria:  “Fandango was sending out disinformation on Julian Assange on purpose so we started looking into him.  He was being paid in crypto and in PayPal by various proxies.  Our contacts are numerous.  He now works for Israeli players who think he works for peanuts, OK.  So let me prove my street cred by giving you something NOBODY KNOWS.  Jason Goodman reported Defango to Manhattan FBI.  They sat on it until Aaron Rich’s attorneys started making noise.  Now they are investigating Defango and Maga Coalition along with a hedge fund manager with ties to Alan Dershowitz.”

[That proves your credentials?] 

Leppo: (3.19)  “Well, our Intel gathering here at Vaporbat Records, as everyone knows, is clean as a penny whistle and we’ve learned that Fandango has been involved with Black Cube, through a man named Eliahi Priest, and he seems to have connections to CIA, possibly MI6.  Another frequent guest of this program, Thomas Schoenberger has reported being threatened by Defango and Priest and we’ve noticed growing suspicions that Priest and Defango may have been involved with Kappy’s murder.  We heard from Vegan Mikey that Kappy disliked Fandango and feared Priest and even said, ‘If anything happens to him, look at Priest and others so can you walk us through this scenario who is Priest?  And did Fandango introduce Kappy to his murderer?”

[If your comedy site “Pillow Talk” intel gathering has a reputation for being “clean”, it is now being muddied by your efforts to press your conclusions into the minds of your viewers, in an effort to override the glaring reality that you do not provide any supporting evidence for your allegations, nor the credentials of your so-called law enforcement Inspector. 

By the way, do you have proof or a set of credible facts that supports your theory that Isaac Kappy was murdered?  Despite some persons’ attempts to paint Kappy as some sort of a hero as a “pedophilia investigator”, the sad truth about this man is that he had no self control;  for example, his choking assault of Michael Jackson’s daughter at a party. Kappy also liked to broadcast conclusory allegations against others, without providing the requisite proof.

What kind of witness is an anonymous handle named Vegan Mikey?  Was he under oath when he quoted a man who is now dead and cannot speak for himself?]

As a side note to my regular readers, Victoria’s familiarity with Fiona Barnett is interesting.  That was a name I came across, when I looked into Robert David Steele’s sovereign citizen-styled International Tribunal for Natural Justice group, where he holds the title of “Chief Counsel” for the mock inquiries they conduct into child sex trafficking.  Fiona Barnett is one who gave a “witness” statement to the ITNJ,  and because it was a litany of allegations with little substance, she does not show herself to be a credible witness.  As the ITNJ has dispensed with standard legal rules of evidence, so any statements presented to them are not challenged in regard to their authenticity.

I have transcribed the entire interview for my records, yet I have only covered a sample of the entire video in this post, in order to demonstrate my concerns. I encourage my readers to watch this video in its entirety, to form their own opinions.

In closing, Pillow Talk has placed its audience in a quandary. Are we to consider that unsupported allegations of criminal offenses against Defango are to be laughed off as mere comedy?

Rather, this video is a representation of reckless speech.  As such, it detracts considerably from any credibility which Leppo, Thomas Schoenberger, and “Inspector” Victoria might have earned, had they displayed credible evidence to prove their  conclusions.

On TRACY TWYMAN and the Dangers of Falling Under the Condemnation of Satanic Overseers

If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, and the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;  thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams:  for the the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.  Deuteronomy 13:1-3

What is worse than falling under the condemnation of Satanic Overseers? 

The answer:  falling under the condemnation of God.

What if both Satan and God condemn you?

Now THAT is a dilemma that cannot be escaped by self justification!

As Job 9:20 says, If I justify myself, mine own mouth shall condemn me:  if I say, I am perfect, it shall prove me perverse.

Nothing New Under the Sun

Based on the Deuteronomy 13 commandment to the Hebrews quoted at the top of this post, it would seem that the strange gods of the hidden realms are one of the means of proving what is in the depth of the heart of an individual.  

Becoming an occultist is a risky venture, comparable to buying a one way train ticket on Arnon Milchan’s movie set of Under Seige 2:  Dark Territory. There is great danger that one might not end up arriving safely at the destination stamped on your ticket.

There is a distinct spiritual difference between occult writings and the King James Bible, both in content, style, and the reality they claim to represent. Various secret societies have attempted to combine their occult world view with the principles of the Bible, according to the occult doctrine called the union of opposing principles.  The end result of that magical operation is what James 1:8 states, that “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” 

The July 10, 2019 reported death of occult researcher Tracy Twyman

On July 10, 2019, it was unofficially reported that occult researcher and writer Tracy Twyman had died suddenly.  Two days later, this anonymous message was relayed via Steve Outtrim’s Twitter account.

If these reports are true, the manner in which Tracy Twyman died provokes the question of whether she had committed suicide or was murdered.  In the year preceding her death, she had documented her thoughts on the taunting messages which were aimed at her; especially the death threats.

Steve Outtrim’s Burners.me webpage is the primary source I recommend for those who want to understand the unfolding story of Tracy Twyman’s death, beginning with his July 10, 2019 informative article,  Another #PedoGate Researcher Suddenly Dies:  RIP Tracy Twyman. Included in that article is a privately distributed video made by Tracy Twyman discussing the threats against her.

In addition, Steve Outtrim has published a July 15, 2019 video on his CryptoBeast YouTube channel, CrytoBeast #21-Tracy Twyman, Kappy, Epstein & LARP Wars with Lift the Veil ,with updates provided on his Burners.me blog.  Tracy Twyman leaves behind a husband and young child, as well as other family members and close friends, who are privately grieving their loss.  Her written works and internet interviews were appreciated by many, who enjoyed her intellect, research,  writing skills, and personality.

I had not known her works prior to the announcement of her death, nor of her probe into that dark topic of pedophilia.  Tracy Twyman was born on August 28, 1978, making her almost 41 at the time of her reported death. Much of what she published had already been put out in the public domain years before she became interested in studying the Holy Grail in 1996, at age 18. Despite publicized warnings by both Christian and occult writers on the dangers of being initiated into secret occult orders, Tracy Twyman was one who forged ahead, anyway.

Speaking of the dangers of  the hidden realm…

In September of 1988, when Twyman  was only ten years old, Whitley Streiber published his book Transformation, which was a sequel to his 1987 book Communion; the disclosure of his encounter with the alien race called the Grays. Despite such warnings that the hidden gods when unmasked, are ominous, menacing personalities, Streiber  was also a person who forged ahead to cross that boundary line between the seen and the unseen worlds.  After he was visited by these strange entities, and despite the duress he felt, Streiber ended up consenting to the commandeering presence of the  the Grays who proceeded to use him to accomplish their will.

published February 25, 1987

Dr. Peter S. Ruckman’s 1995 book with the sarcastic title, Black is Beautiful, described the dark occultist underpinnings of a future American police state.  On page 303, he notes, “Two books were published, written by Whitley Streiber, who claims to have had contact with ‘The Grays’ through a period of years.  His two books were called ‘Communion’ and ‘Transformation’…Nevertheless, Streiber’s diary is “newsworthy,” especially when we compare his account of communion with GRAYS with our communion with Jesus Christ…(Transformation, p. 189/192):  “I felt an absolutely indescribable sense of MENACE.  IT was HELL on earth to be there, and yet I could not move, couldn’t cry out, couldn’t get away.  I lay as still as DEATH, suffering inner AGONIES.  The sense of being INFESTED was powerful and AWFUL”.

So why do researchers of the occult cross the line and enter into communion with those invisible entities which are KNOWN to destabilize their initiates?

Proverbs 18:1-2 analyzes the motive underlying intellectual research efforts, saying, “Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.  A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.”  In other words, much of what passes for research consists of creating an intellectual alibi for the researcher’s own sins.

In Clockwork Shavings, Tracy Twyman relates a story about the person her occult group hired to translate Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall’s Mysterium Baphometis Revelatum from Latin to English.  She says that “the translator suffered a sudden and severe decline in his health” and the assistant who helped him with transcription “nearly quit near the end because of spiritual attacks he endured involving disturbing mental images and poltergeist activity.”

Clock Shavings, an autobiographical account by Tracy Twyman of her occult journey.

In the Preface of her book, Clock Shavings, published by Tracy Twyman’s Dragon Key Press on the anniversary of her 36th birthday, August 28, 2014, she explains, “The following is a true account of deliberately invoked encounters with supernatural forces that took place from July 2001 until the present day.”  Those which participated in the Ouija board with her, included her first husband Brian Albert and members of her secret occult group Ordo Lapsit Exillis which published Dagobert’s Revenge Magazine.  She then says that, “…once certain powers were tapped into, a chain of events was initiated that was impossible to stopa chain of events that initiated us into the Western occult tradition.  But unlike most students of the occult, we learned the mysteries of the Art directly from spirits.”

ITNJ has referenced Tracy Twyman on their recommended reading list

Although I cannot recall ever hearing of Tracy Twyman prior to reading the July 10, 2019 Steve Outtrim article, which provides access to her dead man’s switch video, in fact her name was sitting silently before my eyes in the International Tribunal for Natural Justice‘s Sovereign Voice magazine, which I had previously scanned in preparation for an article on that organization.

The ITNJ is a sovereign citizen-styled tribunal where a mock court, lacking the legal authority to prosecute criminal or civil cases, purports to review witnesses to child sex trafficking.

ITNJ’s Sovereign Voice magazine, Volume 5, recommends Tracy Twyman’s article on  The Biological Basis of Elitism and the “Divine Right” to Rule, as shown in the side box.

Note also that the Sovereign Voice magazine also recommends the works of David Icke, who was personally interviewed by Jason Goodman of Crowdsource the Truth on May 4, 2019, RENEGADE in New York: A Conversation with David Icke About His Life, His work and his First Movie.

Further, one of Jason Goodman’s frequent guests, Quinn Michaels, was discussed in this article titled TwymanTrip 8:  The Internet is Compromised published a year ago by Tracy Twyman.  She discusses AI gang stalking techniques which were similar to those used against her to compromise her computers and to threaten her life and her family’s welfare.

Tracy Twyman had an intense interest in what she calls the bloodline of Christ; the Grail Bloodline, despite the fact that the historical records of Jesus Christ deny that he had produced any children.  She states in her Clock Shavings book, “The Grail, in the view of these secret societies, seemed to symbolize the primordial occult power which was said to result from the union of opposite energies: particularly those of good and evil, male and female, fire and water.”

Continuing, she explains, “In this way, it was similar to the Philosopher’s Stone of the alchemists, and the ‘Kundalini power’ of yoga.  Those of the Grail bloodline, it was implied, had that power in their blood.  The Holy Grail was…either a cup or a stone.  As a cup, it had held the blood of Christ after he was crucified.  As a stone, it was a magical jewel that had purportedly been chipped out of Lucifer’s crown during his war with God’s angels in Heaven.  He who possessed the Grail had the power to rule the world.

Tracy Twyman recalls that she felt “called to the service of the Grail”. She notes that legend says that this sacred stone was possessed with a living intelligence…and when the time arrives that certain people are called to it’s service, “their names appear on the surface of the Grail stone.”  She adds, “For some reason, I suddenly felt that I was one of the lucky few who had been chosen to fulfill that destiny. But I didn’t know what that would entail.”

What followed was she felt like she had been struck with lightning on the head.  ” I realized that I must create a magazine (i.e. Dagobert’s Revenge) with the pretense of being published by the Priory of Zion….I would fill the pages…with peculiar illustrations and curious sayings:  occult shorthand meant to communicate to fellow initiates that I too knew the secret of the Grail.”  Twyman’s aim was to “catch the attention of the occult underground…with the hopes of being initiated into one of the elite groups.”

Tracy Twyman claims she was full of a pulsating energy and that she felt possessed by the light of a hidden genius.  Her magazine became a success and she was invited to do radio interviews constantly.  She comments, “There was even an internet TV show based in Manhattan which asked to have me on as a guest.  It was ‘The Infinity Factory,’ hosted by up and coming media mogul Richard Metzger of the Disinformation Company.”

At some point Brian Albert, a childhood friend who was to become her first husband, discussed with Tracy about forming a secret society of their own.  She had already given herself the title Exalted Grand Master in the first issue of Dagobert’s Revenge.  The name of their Order was Ordo Lapsit Exillis, referring to the stone which fell from Lucifer’s crown, and they adopted the Cross of Lorraine, a symbol used by the Knights Templar, as the official insignia.

Prince Nicholas de Vere von Drakenberg

passport of the prince

One of the persons who contacted Tracy Twyman was a man named Tom Weir, who called himself the Prince Nicholas de Vere von Drakenberg.  Tracy Twyman found him a kindred spirit in his understanding of the Holy Grail, despite his drawbacks which included “being on the dole” and being “diagnosed with severe mental illness”.

When she first read his book, she stated in her Introduction to Blood Victory:  Hope for the Future of Our Race and Civilization, that “I discovered another person who thought exactly the same way I did about the Grail, and the Grail bloodline.  Everything within this book corroborated the theories, speculations, and ideas that we had been writing about in a book of my own, many of them ideas I had held for a long time, but never been able to prove.  Yet here was a man claiming to speak for that very bloodline and ancient tradition which I had been studying, and stating with absurdness what I had been hesitantly proposing.”

The ideas which they shared were that the blood itself provides for the basis for the “divine right” of Dragons to be the overseers of society, and “this is what sets them apart from the rest of humanity, as gods are from mortals”.  Vere claimed that “Grail blood contains genes specifically programmed for ‘magic'”, adding “Dragons, and only Dragons, can perform magic, and are therefore the only authentic Witches…for that reason, magic has always been an exclusive, secretive, royal art…”.

This relationship later became problematic, which can be seen in this article posted at Gnostic Warrior.com, titled, Death of Nicholas de Vere:  Le Prieure de Sion Rebuttal to Tracy Twyman.

Tracy Twyman had De Vere write a few article for Dagobert’s Revenge, and in turn he made her a “member” of the Dragon Court, conferring the royal title upon her, Baroness Renee von Drakenberg. Her relationship with De Vere created a situation where she began to receive harassing emails.  She relates that “It was around this point, sometime between the third and fourth issue of Dagobert’s Revenge, that I became acquainted with another narcissistic alcoholic with severe mental problems.  But this one’s intentions were far more sinister.  My decision to become involved with him was a fateful one.”

Tracy Twyman’s relationship with Boyd Rice, high priest of the Church of Satan

Douglas Pierce, Brian Albert, Tracy Twyman, and Boyd Rice (clockwise)

Twyman mentions doing an interview with Douglas Pierce of the dark folk band Death in June.  And then she says she received a fan letter from a writer named Kevin Coogan, who had written an article on the topic of fascism and white power ideology in underground music.  Tracy Twyman explains, “One of those discussed was a sort of avant-garde “noise” artist named Boyd Rice.”  As it turned out, Rice had appeared as a guest on several albums by Death in June,  and so she requested an interview with him.

Only a Cultural Provocateur?

On September 18, 2018, Charlie Markbreiter wrote an interesting article for Artspace.com called, How Art World Fascists Like Boyd Rice Co-opt Sixties Counterculture- and Get Gallery Shows Despite Being NazisThis article says that Rice, an experimental musician and visual artist, has denied being a Nazi, claiming that he is only a cultural provocateur.  But Rice has long-standing ties to white supremacist groups and fascist propaganda.  In the eighties, Rice appeared on Race and Reason, a TV show hosted by Tom Metzger, former Klan Wizard and found of the White Aryan Resistance (WAR).  When Metzger asks Rice if industrial music can serve as “a new propaganda instrument emerging for White Aryans,” Rice agrees.”

Boyd Rice and Anton LaVey, Church of Satan

RAPE stands for Revolt Against Penis Envy, and Boyd Rice said “Now is the time to dominate. Now is the time to rape.”

Reputation Repair of Boyd Rice?

Tracy and Brian told Boyd Rice about their secret Ordo Lapsit Exillis, and made him a member.  Rice had been a High Priest of the Church of Satan and was a close friend of Anton LaVey until his death, and subsequently, Boyd claimed he had written a letter of resignation on St. Dagobert’s Day, December 23d, which is “a date important to the mystery of the Grail bloodline”. Apparently he was tired of getting bad press, and needed to repair his reputation, and he considered that the Ordo Lapsit Exillis offered a cleaner image.

When Tracy Twyman was invited by the producers of a new Fox TV show to go to Rennes-le-Chateau, to share her research, Boyd Rice also went along.  She claims, “I was aware once again that something- some outer entity-had tapped me to do a job pertaining to the Grail mystery.”  Within less than a year, Tracy Twyman and Brian Albert moved in together in Denver, Colorado where Boyd Rice lived.

Boyd Rice once performed a wedding in Tracy and Brian’s apartment, where they painted her office walls black, had a four foot Cross of Lorraine, a makeshift altar and a plastic goblet with a real human head skull, black candles and a ceramic head of Bacchus as decorations. Boyd performed the service in black clothing with a white priest’s collar.  The guests were lead into the ritual chamber wearing black hoods.  Twyman relates, “The room was charged with a certain spiritual energy, obvious to anyone with the eyes to see it, and the guests certainly picked up on it.”

The 2002 wedding of Tracy Twyman and Brian Albert in a white room. Brian died in March of 2012.     Tracy remarried and they have a child which was born in 2013.

It was during that time that Tracy and Brian decided to contact the dead Jean Cocteau, the alleged Grand Master of the Priory of Sion, using the Ouija board. This lead to contacting the spirit of Cain. When they explained to the spirit that they wanted information on the mystery of the Holy Grail, and Tracy asked, “Are we asking questions we shouldn’t be asking?”,  Cain replied, “Yes”.  And when they asked who was angry with them for asking, Cain said it was Baphomet, which they understood to be the demonic idol worshiped by the Templars.

Bibliotecapleyades.net has preserved an interesting document on the Ordo Lapsit Exillis, describing its purpose and hierarchy, and ending with a statement by Boyd Rice. That statement contradicts the timeline of events as described by Tracy Twyman.

Boyd Rice claims that on December 23, 2003, that he dissolved the Ordo Lapsit Exillis, as if he was the overseer who created it in the first place.

On February 26, 2019, on Renegade Broadcasting.com, Sinead was reading from Tracy Twyman’s The Secret of Minnie’s Mouse, and at the 3.03 mark, she quotes Twyman as saying, “Several decades ago I was personally acquainted with quite a few people that remained at the Church of Satan milieu after Anton La Vey was dead…”.

What Tracy Twyman did not seem to take into account when she first ventured down the Holy Grail road, as she sought to be initiated into the “genuine” historically hidden Order of the Holy Grail, was what type of rulers were these Overseers.

The Church of Satan established by Anton LaVey had always maintained a front that facilitates, [to borrow the words of Charlie Markbreiter of Art Space], “Rice’s avoidance of accountability.  In the last instance, he can always say that he was ‘just kidding’…”.

That attitude of “just kidding” is what we are witnessing when it comes to the broadcast journalism of the Alternative Media.  It has become almost impossible to discern the “who, what, when, where, and why”, the five fundamentals of any real reporting, in this  avoidance of accountability environment.

I don’t know what the entire backstory of Tracy Twyman is, so what I have primarily brought forth in this article is what she said about herself.  She chose to live her life surrounded by men who openly mocked everything that was inherently good; good being defined as originating from a Holy God.  Many of the men which Tracy Twyman aligned herself with on this Holy Grail journey, turned on her.

No doubt this cautionary tale will be ignored by those who like to forge ahead into Dark Territory in their hubris.  But beware of the Overseers.  



Marcus Conte: Clueless in New Yuck City

As a mad man who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death, so is the man that deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?  Proverbs 26:18-19

Lately Marcus Conte has been obsessing over LARP theory, and he has suggested  that the involvement of  George Webb and Jason Goodman of Crowdsource the Truth in causing the June 14, 2017 shut down of the Port of Charleston over a dirty bomb hoax, was nothing more than “a comedy”.

When I first heard of Marcus Conte, I thought he was an immature 20-year old.  However, he is actually 55.  I am astonished by the disconnect between his online personality and his actual age.

Marcus Conte was a featured guest on Jason Goodman’s Crowdsource the Truth on two occasions; on September 19, 2017 in DSNY Whistle Blower, and also on March 7, 2018 in Taking Out the Trash- DSNY Whistleblower Marcus Conte Gets His Day in Court.    

More recently, one of my readers sent me the link to the YouTube video seen below so I could read the comments from the viewers. Conte likes to make vile remarks, as for example in his introduction to this video, as he appears to have an obsession with Gay Larpers.

On July 1, 2019,  Marcus Conte uploaded this video, saying “Marcus Conte reporting from ass, man my ass hurts from recovering from Gay Pride Day…”

Other videos this week include the distasteful and defamatory image of the President of the United States.

In 2016, Marc Conte, who is highly critical of others who sue for defamation of character, filed two discrimination complaints with the New York Supreme Court, plus an appeal, asking for $250,000 in damages from the New York Department of Sanitation (DSNY) and the New York State Division of Human Rights (NYSDHR).

One of several complaints against the DSNY, was classified by Marcus Conte as  Homophobia, stating, “A handful of students, teachers, supervisors and agents in the field started a rumor I am Gay (homosexual) because I lived in the village for many years and worked in the predominately gay-male catering industry; and because I inquired in class about health benefits for my domestic partner.  I never said I was gay.  Many assumed it based on their preconceived notions of what a gay person is, and is not.”

Marcus Conte YouTube

At some point, Jason Goodman and Marcus Conte parted ways, and this was discussed in Conte’s  June 27, 2019, Lost in LARPville-with Steve Outtrim.  Exposing the Inside World of Online Larping,

At the 1.20.45 mark we hear Marcus Conte offering a completely different viewpoint from the homophobia complaint he made against his employer.

Marcus Conte:  “I was able to get George Webb and Jason Goodman off my back very easily, right?  I made 10 videos and Jason, I mean, I, I go, I shop, he doesn’t even know that, but I, I’m, I’m next to his door twice a week.  I shop at the you know, the Whole Foods, right downstairs from his house, right and, and, and Webb is, these people, what I’m trying to say is that the truth can’t really, you, if you stay grounded in the truth, you’re immune to idiots like George Webb and, and Jason Goodman.”

“They can’t, they can’t affect you, I mean, I, I, speculated based on reliable evidence that, that George Webb fucked Jason and his ass on his couch, right?  And I say that, I say that right, on the,  right to his face, I said it to his face right, you know, and it’s, it’s like, is it true?  So if it’s not true, how does that hurt you? You do live in the gayest neighborhood in Manhattan, right?  You live in buff fucking central in, in Chelsea, right?  Is it and you have a, you have a mysterious man sleeping on your couch for four weeks.  Is it…”.

Steve Outtrim:  “Yeah, and he has a spoof obsession..”

Marcus Conte:  “Right, so, so if that isn’t true, you look in the camera, say, ‘How fucking ridiculous is that, I am you know, I, this is who I am and, and, and it’s just not true and what would be the shame and, in being homosexual anyways, it’s not a shame, it’s just funny that, that George may have fucked Jason’s ass, right, you know?  That’s, that’s humor and there’s this truth in humor, now is that, is that, do I become part of the LARP?  Conte, they accused me of being the LARP, ‘Oh, he just an insert, he’s inserting himself in the story.’  No, I’m just curious who killed her, who killed Jen Moore and did Jason fuck, did George fuck Jason’s ass?  Anyway, I digress.” (1.22.42)

Appeals Judgment finds Conte’s Arguments Unavailing

On March 29, 2018, the following court decision was made, in regard to Marcus Conte’s Appeal of his legal complaints against the DSNY: 

The 10 ticket quota non-issue

Marcus Conte was held up as a “whistle blower” by the media, because one of his complaints against the DSNY involved a 10 ticket/day quota for Sanitation Enforcement Agents (SEA), which he  claimed was evidence of department corruption.

Marcus Conte, SEA worked for less than a year as a code enforcer for the New York Department of Sanitation, and then he was fired after several  Unsatisfactory Performance Reviews and 9 warnings were given.

It is regrettable that the means of measuring the productivity of DSNY enforcement agents was a ticket quota that also brought in revenue.  This dual purpose of a quota made it an easy target for a disgruntled employee to cast aspersions, rather than to suggest another cost efficient means of measuring  productivity.

The problem for DSNY supervisors is, that once their agents leave the office, no one really knows if they are doing their job or sitting in a cafe drinking coffee for 5 hours. The taxpayer has a right to expect that public servants put in an honest day’s work.

The downside of quotas is that some employees might write tickets where no offense has occurred, to meet the baseline minimum requirement.  Those ticket revenues help to offset the public cost of having to employ code enforcement agents, so it is not wrong for supervisors to be aware of that reality.  But this issue is more complex than Marcus Conte would have you believe.  It appears his solution is that Department of Sanitation agents should not be monitored for performance at all; however, implementation of that idea encourages those employees who are slackers, to do nothing productive throughout their work day.

The Documented Legal Complaints of Marc Conte 

[The New York Supreme Court Appellate Division documents for Marc Conte vs. City of New York Department of Sanitation [DSNY] and New York State Division of Human Rights [NYSDHR] (136 pages) can be read here:  marc conte vs dsny]

In petitioning the Appellate Court, Marc Conte summarized the nature of his case as  “Employment discrimination and retaliation for wrongful termination from employment; filed on 12/3/16.  This is an Article 78 to Reverse NYSDHR “No Probable Cause” decision on June 2, 2016, and find Respondent DSNY Guilty of unlawful discrimination and retaliation; Award me damages in the sum of $250,000.”

In a Statement of Claim dated July 22, 2015 (page 128), Marc Conte begins, “I am a 51-year old WHITE male with a criminal arrest and conviction record, drug & alcohol history (disability), and I am a practicing vegan-Buddhist.  I was hired by the City of New York on December 08, 2014 as a Sanitation Enforcement Agent (SEA).  I do not fit-in in any way with the majority of 95% younger black & Hispanic Christian supervisors and co-workers.”

“Despite my above average work ethic and the fact I satisfy the department’s 10-ticket per day quota I have been persistently harassed, antagonized and issued false and misleading [negative] performance evaluations in an attempt to get me fired and or get me to quit.  There are no other employees other than myself I can see who does his work but is so openly and obviously discriminated for the above-mentioned differences….”.

Conte’s police record with the City of New York which he references, stems from his  1981, 1984, 1993, 1994, and 1996 convictions involving drugs, aggravated harassment, theft of services, and assault with intention to cause serious injury with/weapon.  And when we combine this with other biographical information, it is dismaying that Jason Goodman of Crowdsource the Truth and others in Alt Media have promoted Marcus Conte as a whistle blower, when the record of his legal complaints tells another story.

Forced Out of a Career He Loved?

On page 127, Conte relates, “People who hate me for who they think I am forced me out of a career I loved.  As a result, I am experiencing anxiety, loss of appetite, sleeplessness, humiliation and a pending sense of financial doom.  I waited 2-1/2 years to be called for this job, only to have this last year be a living nightmare.  I was attending therapy for my troubles but now I can’t afford it (no health insurance).  As well, I was cheated out of $800 in uniform disbursement.  I am seeking compensatory damages in the sum of $250,000, and any additional damages the Division see fit.  I have no interest whatsoever in returning to work for the Respondent.”

The thing I noticed right away, is that although Marc Conte claims he loved his job, his actions say something else.  Less than two months on the job, he had requested time off to attend a job interview for another agency!  He was allowed time off, but because he deemed the travel time allowed to be insufficient, he went AWOL to attend his interview.  Coinciding with that event, that day just happened to be a snow day, and so he was required to be at work for Snow Duty, and to forgo the interview. A complaint was written up by his supervisor when he was absent without leave.

From my own personal experience in the corporate world, no new employee would ever be so brazen as to request time off to go to a job interview for another agency.  Why did he take the job in the first place, and waste everyone’s time and training expenses, if he did not sincerely intend to stay?

Also of interest is that one of Conte’s instructors commented that she found him “argumentative”, “he always disagreed with something and wanted to put things his way” and “everything you asked or told him, he always had to second-guess it”.

No kidding!  After watching just 3 videos of Marcus Conte speaking in his incoherent style was enough to convince me of the credibility of the instructor’s comments.  

What did Marc Conte aka Marcus Conte aka Marcus Goodwin do before he sued DSNY?

Marcus Conte has written two books.  The first was published on December 1, 2000, under the pen name Marcus Goodwin, and titled, The Psychic Investor:  Use Your Intuition Plus Investing Fundamentals to Profit in the Stock Market. 

On March 31, 2000, George Manner wrote an article for thestreet.com  about Conte aka Goodwin called, Wall Street’s Return to Paranormalcy:  This is no April Fool’s joke:  a Wall Street trade group’s lunch with a psychic investor.”

One of the anecdotes we learn from The Street.com article is that “Goodwin, born Marc Conte, learned about his own psychic powers in a rather dramatic fashion, as he explains in the book.  When he was 7 years old, his family moved from the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn to Las Vegas.  It was there that, one day in the desert, a strange man walked up to Marc, addressed him by name without benefit of introduction, and told the boy that the two of them were ‘sensitives’ who would inherit the earth.  The child later realized that the man in the desert was none other than billionaire Howard Hughes.”



The other book written by Marcus Conte in 2012, is Wake Yourself Up:  Spiritual Enlightenment Right Here, Right Now.  That book can be read in this pdf:marcus conte wake yourself up book

The About section of this book gives the following biographical details.

Marcus Conte: The Hypocrite who baits others with nonsensical arguments

I recently viewed Marcus Conte’s June 29, 2019, YouTube video Trump Takes Down Jimmy Carter, Religious Police in Alabama, LARP Feuds Continue.  It seems that Marcus Conte had asked Dave Sweigert aka Dave Acton of Prepper Kitty Intel YouTube to come on his show to address the subject of LARPS and lawsuits. Dave Sweigert declined, so Marcus Conte played portions of a PKI video and offered his comments.

At the 22.35 mark of Conte’s video he plays the PKI video, and Dave Sweigert is heard remarking, “…since your last interview was with Fandango.  So Marcus says, Well, don’t you think it’s a sign of weakness to sue people you disagree with?

To which Marcus Conte interjects with his answer, exclaiming,  “Yes!

[Marc Conte, how do you characterize your weakness when you filed your legal complaint against the DSNY, for $250,000 in damages?]

The clip continues with Sweigert saying, “I said, Oh you mean Port of Charleston and the response was, ‘Oh, that was a comedy show.’  The Port of Charleston was a comedy show?  When did that happen?  When was the Port of Charleston a comedy show?”

Marcus Conte then comments with sarcasm on Dave Sweigert’s remarks at the 23.23 mark,saying  “he takes the high ground.  He’s the expert.  I know more than you about this stuff.  I’m the brother of the, of the accused, I, … you know.  It’s great.”

The clip of PKI continues playing, with Dave Sweigert saying, “The last I heard the Port of Charleston incident cost the Maersk shipping line like 4 million dollars.”  To which Marcus Conte replies, “He starts to make a case that the Maersk Memphis is the reason why that happened was because of, of his stupid brother who is a guy who is in ….”.

Back to Lost in LARPVILLE…

In the June 27, 2019, Marcus Conte interview with Steve Outtrim called Lost in LARPville-with Steve Outtrim. Exposing the Inside World of Online Larping, at the 28.30 mark we hear something that almost borders on coherence.

Marcus Conte:  “…what comes first, the LARP or the, the information influx, that’s what I still, I still, you know beg to differ that I think that the money, the, the LARP, the natural talent is there and then the LARP is approached because I’ve never, every situation that in my, my brief experience, my little fame that I have, right, is that the LARP that I’m approached that, that someone approaches me with this idea, right, like initially the – my whistleblowing was -I, I, I had presented that to the public, Goodman picked it up right away and, and they crowdsourced the truth, ran with it, right and but, but, but every situation after that well it seemed to have been some friendly guy coming over you know, we’ll take care of you by the way, we got this, you know this, this story you know and I can prove all that with the, you know, through the emails and then and then and then you’re watching all this, and then and then Webb’s girlfriend and partner dies!”

[Whoa, whoa!  What friendly guy promised “We’ll take care of you….?”

“…that’s where, that’s what I’m trying to say and then and then, the lawsuits.  There’s a dead, a dead, dead player, there’s , there’s lawsuits I don’t care about their feelings.  I don’t care about that, that George’s brother Dave Acton says Jason hurt his feelings because he smeared them online.  That’s all bullshit.  You sign up for it, you sign up to be alarmed, you interject your Jason’s, Jason is not is, is not a, a credible, you know, outstanding character and honest player, whatsoever.  However, people that, that, the larps that surround him and Webb sign up for it, right.  They inject themselves like Defango, like Quinn Michaels, like I mean, then the list goes on and on, Thomas Paine, right, Dave Acton…” (30.47)

At the 1.19.30 mark of this video, Marcus Conte and Steve Outtrim are discussing LARPS, and Conte remarks that they “play on the emotion- it’s a valid art form in my view, I just draw the line when people are murdered, (laughing) and, and, and people start throwing lawsuits at each other just to justify their actions.  I just, I think, I think…”

Steve Outtrim: “…before you get to the, the lawsuits, you know what I think.  When it turns to slander, to defamation, trying to mess up somebody’s career, either by spreading lies about them, you know in a public forum or by directly contacting their employers and business associates and spreading lies about them in whisper campaigns that stuff could be very, very destructive and the internet is forever.  It’s hard to get some of that stuff away so they do need to be some legal remedies and resources and you know I think that we differ on how we see what George Webb’s brother is doing.  I see him as a hero of this piece because even though he has worked for the Deep State or organizations in the past, he’s also a legitimate whistle blower.  You know he sued the CIA over a case of reporting misspending of funds and he won that case, and it went on to continue to have a career in the intelligence community…”

And on it goes.  Marcus Conte is LOST in LARPville, and in over his head when it comes to discussing ethics, law, reality…but no matter, Howard Hughes will be returning to inherit the earth with Conte…  






In The Company of SHADOWBOXers

Thomas Schoenberger

Thomas Schoenberger is billed on  his website as a polymath, composer, historian, entrepreneur event designer, inventor and writer. In addition, in  2017 he started Shadowbox Strategies as a reputation defense business, with Manuel Chavez III aka Defango.

Over time, problems arose between these two men, which have since become a public online conflict noticed by other YouTubers involved in the online puzzle world of Cicada 3301 and Q, and crypto-currency platforms such as Steemit.

On June 22, 2019, Schoenberger aka Parody Lives published an unlisted YouTube video called Proof Defango is Lying.

This 4.25 minute video is Part I of a VII-part series.  In today’s article, Tracking the Leopard Meroz will be reviewing this video and comparing the narrative with some documents shown on Defango TV.  I do not favor either Schoenberger or Manuel Chavez and consider that each man is responsible for his own credibility.  I am viewing this video simply to evaluate it for its effectiveness as a stand alone production of an expose.

The title “Proof Defango is Lying” immediately raises the bar of expectation high, because we will be looking for proof, and asking if evidence and facts are presented to  justify the creator’s conclusion that “Defango is lying”.  It hardly matters if the video creator believes this statement to be true, if an objective outside observer is not persuaded by the narrative provided.

Thomas Schoenberger is known for his wonderful music compositions, and thus it is not surprising that throughout the video we hear Bach as the background music. This entire video is composed of written words, supplemented by a few photographs and two short segments of non-sourced videos.

[My commentary below is shown in maroon.]


Parody Lives begins with a speculative conclusion that Defango aka Manuel Chavez the 3rd is a criminal scam artist who is tied to DNC operatives and David Brock. [No background information is provided for Brock, so I will link the Wikipedia article here.]

One of the problems with starting an argument with conclusions, especially those based on opinion and not on a firm foundation of fact, is that the viewer or reader is not drawn into the narrative.  If we are to be kept outside of the loop of the prejudices of the narrator, why should we care about the conflict between Schoenberger and Defango?

IMAGES 2,3, & 4:

Video Image #2

Image #3 shows a photo with the caption:   Ed Butowsky and close friend Debbie Wasserman Schultz

Image #4 shows a photo of the parents of Seth Rich, sitting together and jointly holding a photo of their son.

Parody Lives says Defango is tied to Ed Butowsky, and he goes on to note Butowksy’s connections to others in the same sentence.  This serves to imply a subtle guilt by association that may have no basis in reality as it concerns Defango.  What is not also promoted is the truth that by doing business with Butowsky, Parody Lives aka Thomas Schoenberger is also TIED to Butowsky and possibly his connections, as well.

On March 26, 2018, Aaron Rich, brother of the deceased Seth Rich, filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia against Edward Butowsky, Matthew Couch, America First Media and the Washington Times. See redacted Document 3 here.

Introduction Document 3 Aaron Rich federal civil court Complaint filed 3/26/2018

As seen in the screen shot above, Ed Butowsky and his co-defendants have had serious defamation allegations leveled at them by Aaron Rich.

Just this past week, Defango  published a YouTube video  displaying some of the documents which he is providing to Aaron Rich’s counsel, as part of the Discovery process.  That video called, Subpoena Compliance-Aaron Rich lawsuit was published on June 22, 2019, the same day that Parody Lives published part I of his 7 part series on Proof Defango is Lying.

IMAGES 5, 6 & 7

Image # 6“A man named Trevor Fitzgibbon was also a partner.  Trevor had done PR work for Wikileaks.”

Image # 7“Trevor Introduced us to Ed.  Ed hired us through Trevor.”

In Image # 2, Parody Lives emphasizes the point that Defango is tied to Ed Butowsky.    But then, in images # 6-7, that allegation is modified by stating that it was through Trevor Fitzgibbon, a partner in Thomas Schoenberger’s company, Shadowbox Strategies, that Ed Butowsky showed up as a high-paying CLIENT.

It is not explained how Schoenberger and Defango were introduced to Fitzgibbon, whereby a partnership was formed between rank amateurs and a seasoned media man. For Influence Watch’s commentary on Fitzgibbon Media, see article here.

Like many others, I was straining to read the small print on the documents which Defango displayed in his June 22, 2019, “subpoena compliance” video.  However, I was able to screenshot a few on the Shadowbox company so that I could provide documented content for my commentary.


One interesting email from Th Stg to Defango which appears to be dated March 11, 2018, has Thomas Schoenberger aka Th Stg aka Parody Lives declaring, “I am not going to put CEO.  It’s power structure bullshit Manny, You are right.  I will put partner.”

Wait just a minute here!  In the REAL WORLD of business it matters how a business is structured, because that structure determines how day to day operations function, how legal liability is apportioned, etc. So to dismiss the importance of power structure, as Schoenberger did in his email, causes me, as a former bank auditor, to ask if Shadowbox is a false corporate front to legitimize some other activity.

There is a legal difference between a corporation and for example an LLC, which is commonly used for tax purposes involving partnerships. Schoenberger does not display any corporate papers to allow his viewers to understand whether or not this company was registered as a corporation, LLC, or sole proprietorship…or how partners or employees were paid, what kind of tax return was prepared for 2017, who was the treasurer and comptroller.. there are lots of unanswered questions in Schoenberger’s narrative.  These questions are critical because of the accusations which have publicly been made between these partners regarding the legal problems of their client, Ed Butowsky.

Thomas Schoenberger claims in his Parody Lives video that “I started a company named Shadowbox strategies with Defango in 2017.”  Yet Defango has stated that his name was not on the documents that set up the company.  So what document exists that legally establishes that Manual Chavez was an actual partner in this firm, and not just an employee/agent?  Did Chavez put up any capital for Shadowbox?  If so, what percentage?  Were the partners equal, or did one person have a controlling interest?  I find it peculiar that Thomas Schoenberger at first regarded himself as CEO, and then later bowed to a partnership concept, while at the same time disregarding the important issue of where authority and responsibility for the company lay.

What documents establish the partnership basis for Trevor Fitzgibbon? 

All of these details are essential in establishing the legal accountability of each of these so-called principals of Shadowbox.  Parody Lives does not show any documents relating to his company; it is Defango that displays actual documents which provide insight into Shadowbox’s stated mission.

Defango is turning over whatever Shadowbox paperwork he has, to a federal civil court proceeding wherein Shadowbox’s client Ed Butowsky is being sued for defamation. The fact that some of those documents can be viewed, however imperfectly, at Defango TV,  upholds Defango’s credibility.  If Thomas Schoenberger, as former CEO of Shadowbox at its inception,  wants to be believed, he should offer at the very minimum the same level of documentation as Defango does.

At the 2.06 mark of Defango’s subpoena compliance video, a letter is shown which has the Shadowbox logo alongside the heading, Your Silent Partner in Business, Go Viral, Be Secure, Shadow-box.org 669-666-1378.

The first paragraph of this letter reads, Shadowbox is an elite team of online specialties that can respond to a variety of client situations and needs based on real-time events.  We use a combination of tactics and strategies to effectively promote your content, operation or services to create viral marketing campaigns that effectively target organic growth systems.  We take targeted marketing to a new level of access by identifying positive and negative promoters to prudently manage social online presence and engagement in real time which translates to sales, or higher visibility.  We can also help mitigate militia-like tactics used in targeted harassment campaigns to effectively thwart and vanquish internet threats, character assassination attempts, deleterious media, embarrassingly or potentially damaging links on google.  We act as your silent partner and protection in the vast online world and offer you cutting edge tactics ….”

We specialize in uncovering unique intelligence and social business interaction methodologies and apply them to ensure rapid deployment virality across the media spectrum. Our researchers uncover what others cannot use cutting-edge intelligence mapping systems, private detective networks, ex-intelligence agents and officers….”.

At one point in his video, Defango reads a glib written on his skills saying: “Manual Chavez, our tech guru, and You Tube personality will build out three fundraising platforms for Ed, including Steemit, GoFundMe, etc. We will have our “man in the street” campaign starting immediately with Manual Chavez doing ‘New York Minute’….”.

Hahahahahahaha………!!! The New York Minute!!!  That’s great!  Just like Jason Goodman!


At the 1.55 mark of Defango’s video, a Shadowbox document is displayed, which appears to be an example of promotional work. [As usual, I have bolded some phrases below, which were not in the original document.]

“You’ve been attacked.  Your reputation, your family, your clients and livelihood, you feel like the earth is moving under your feet.  You are in jeopardy.  You didn’t pick this fight.  But you can’t afford to lose it.


Shadowbox is your army.  We solve your problems and expose truth.  We unleash a multifaceted, strategic battle plan through integrated research earned media, legal and digital chaos.

Where your enemies have lied to paint you as the bad guy, we sow the seeds of doubt and present the counter-narrative that they are, in fact, the villains, and you have been unjustly accused.  We do this through sophisticated use of internet technology, meme creation, PR, and cyber-guerrilla tactics that stop the bleeding and begin to sway public opinion and the media in your favor.


Shadowbox designs crisis management/ counterinsurgencies to debunk and hit back at malicious and defamatory online and media attacks on our clients…..Our operations unit effectively routs adversaries away from you, sending them to chase phantoms and rendering them exhausted and perplexed.…”  etc. etc.

IMAGES 8, 9 10, 11 & 12

Image #8:  “In a meeting in Sept 2017, in which 8 people were present, including myself, Defango, Matt Couch, Ed Butowsky, Malia Zimmerman and others, Ed laid out a plot to surveil the Seth Rich family.”

Image #9:  same photo of Seth Rich’s parents as shown in image #4

Image #10:  “I refused, Defango agreed to Ed’s plans and met privately with Ed after the meeting.  Defango later told me he was helping Ed work on the computers needed to wire tap the Rich family in Omaha, Nebraska.”

Image #11:  “Even though I refused, I did agree to work with Ed and when he offered to provide a hotel suite to me and Defango in Feb. 2018, I flew out and roomed with Defango for roughly 60 days.”

Image #12:  Ed was gracious at times and then very weird at others.  He wanted Shadowbox to be his militia.”

For Only $40,000 for the first month, you can command your own private army!

The Shadowbox advertisement I noted earlier under “This is War” says, “Shadowbox is your army.”  So why would anyone be surprised that Ed Butowsky should interpret that to mean he is paying for his own private militia?    In the letter below which appears to be an April 4, 2017 draft of an agreement between Shadowbox and their client Ed Butowsky, it states in the 3rd paragraph, “For this work, Shadowbox will charge a fee of $40,000, for the first month with additional months to be negotiated in advance on client needs, plus expenses.”

IMAGES 13, 14,15,16 and 17

Image #13:  Ed hated an attorney named Stuart Blaugrund. The video you are about to see is a zoom capture of a meeting Ed had with Defango, Trevor and me in October 2017.  You can witness Ed baiting us to mess with Stuart.

Image #14:  Here is Ed asking Defango, me and Trevor to do something nasty to Stuart.  Does this sound like a request for reputation defense, as Defango alleges?

Image #15:

Ed Butowsky in an undated video clip, which would not be considered evidence in a court because it has not been Authenticated.

The music which plays at the same time as the video monologue makes it difficult to understand the soft spoken and demure Ed Botowsky.  Looking at this video, and not knowing his background, one wonders that Thomas Schoenberg found him intimidating.  I cannot understand what executive or professional skills Schoenberg provided Shadowbox, given that he is a musician whose past business reputation is tarnished by online allegations.  If Ed Butowsky in this video has already paid $40,000 for the first month of Shadowbox services, he certainly seems rather placid in this videotaped request, which Schoenberger regards as evidence of “soliciting gang stalking and doxxing”.

Ed Botowsky says, “Hi. It’s Ed Butowsky.  So, I need some help. umm.  There’s a guy named Stuart Blaugrund and I’m not really sure how to deal with this so I’m asking for some help.  If you know what I mean. So I’m not really sure what to do.  I mean.  I could go like on Facebook, let everybody know his phone number _____, or his email _____, and show his picture and then tell everyone hey look at all of his activities and his relationships and maybe express your feelings towards him directly of any kind…I could do that (Schoenberger’s background music covers over Butowsky’s monologue).  So if you have any suggestions, how you would handle a situation like this, umm, please let me know.” (1.35 – 2.51)

Image # 16:  Ed later asked me to set Stuart up with anonymous accusations of rape.  I again refused.

Image # 17:  Ed now claims I tried to extort $300,000 from him.  I challenge Ed to produce any evidence to support that allegation.

In Images # 16 and 17, Schoenberger does not provide proof that Ed Butowsky has made the statements he attributes to him. In business settings, people ask for all sorts of things–some are serious requests and some are said in jest.  Just say no, and leave it at that.  The tail should not be wagging the dog.

In Image #14, we find out finally what the title of this video meant when it asserted that Defango was lying about who-knows what.  The center point of contention seems to be that Defango was alleging that Ed Butowsky was merely asking for reputation defense and not illegal retribution

The statements made by Parody Lives concerning both Ed Butowsky and Defango are unconvincing in that the only documentation provided is weak.  It would be helpful for Parody Lives to have at minimum provided links to the original source of the full videos, which he excerpts short clips from.

Image # 18:  “After two months, Defango left and threatened to dox my friend and me.  He threatened that we would beocme (sp) “suicides:  Defango even made threats as late as Dec 16th 2018 against her and her small children.”

Image #19:

video clip from undated Defango YouTube upload, which unfortunately shows him in his car high after taking LSD

This clip shows Manuel Chavez III saying, “If you give him that trademark, I’m going to stop at nothing in the entire world to ruin your life, your family’s life, your husband’s life and anyone that’s ever been known to you…like I said, if you ever EVER think about it, even attempt it -to give that thing to him-it’s all over.  And that’s it.” (3.13-3.48)

Image #20:  “Both Ed and Defango use the exact same tactics, doxxing, false allegations, reputation tarnishing, and urging others to attack.”

Although Defango’s intelligence shows clearly in his video productions, his profanity,  and threatening speech are also frequently on display, as well.  Defango is 33 years old, and accountable for his words and actions, including this inexcusable drug induced threat directed to a person in a vulnerable position.  It is not surprising that there are constant online exchanges between Defango and Thomas Schoenberger, as well as others.

However, it needs to be noted that in the Shadowbox enterprise, the other partners were at least 20 years older than Defango, and they could have reined his immaturity in.  Where is there any leadership displayed in the Shadowbox business set-up?  Why set up a flimsy business model when the first month fees charged were $40,000?  This is big money, and if the services described were not delivered IN THE FIRST MONTH, it is a red flag for a money-laundering front in the eyes of the IRS and the FBI.  One can be sure that the attorneys for Aaron Rich will be asking the same questions which are noted here.

IMAGES 21, 22,23, 24, 25 & 26

Image # 21  “I responded by telling Defango I would make public his little black op with Ed.”

Image # 22:  “Defango now has an army of people to try and stop me from telling the truth.”

Image #23:  “Including but not limited to:  @powerful primes, @Tafoyovsky, @youngatlas, Bobby Sauerwalk, an ex con, and Diane Nordstrom of Jamestown NY Diane is known as “Nutbag” Nordstrom”

Image #24:  “Jared T – Swift Real name James Lefeber, Mason and Satanist”

Image #25:  “I am exposing everything, since these satanic demons need to be exposed and then sent to prison.”

Image # 26:  Stay Tuned

Defango responded to the Parody Lives’ video in detail on June 23, 2019.  That video can be seen here: #Checkmate Merlin Defango vs. Demonitization.

I look forward to viewing Parts II-VII of the Parody Lives expose, and hope that future episodes will provide courtroom ready documentation to support all allegations.  In reviewing both videos discussed in this article, thus far it is Parody Lives– zero points; and Defango-one point.





FYI: Blackstone Intelligence’s Article on Montagraph Defamation Lawsuit

Jake Morphonios of Blackstone Intelligence has reported on the the defamation lawsuit filed against him by Steve Quest aka Montagraph.

Of great interest are the court documents which Morphonios has linked in his article.  This is a must read, if you are interested in the problem of internet stalking, defamation, and anonymous troll harassment.
