Day 1,049 of the Robert David Steele vs. Jason Goodman lawsuit: Wild Conspiracy Theories and Threats of Sanctions

On July 15, 2020, the Court heard discussions in the Robert David Steele et. al. vs. Jason Goodman, et. al. defamation lawsuit.

That lawsuit was filed almost three years ago, on September 1, 2017, in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Richmond Division, as case number 3:17-cv-00601-MHL.

When the original complaint was filed against Jason Goodman of Crowdsource the Truth, Patricia Negron, and Queen Tut, (later identified as Susan A. Lutzke), the asking price was $18 million.  The Amended Complaint raised the ante several million; but now that almost 3 years has passed, Jason Goodman claims that Robert David Steele is willing to settle with him for $500,000.

Steele and Negron recently reached a private settlement. In the case of Queen Tut, she declined to answer the Complaint, and was found in default.

Trial is scheduled for August 11-13, 2020, unless Steele and Goodman come to terms in a private settlement.

According to Document 204 representing a Summary of the July 15th  hearing, matters were taken under advisement, parties were to file detailed Table of Contents by Friday at noon, and the hearing will be continued to July 23, 2020 at 10 a.m.

On July 2, 2020, thirteen days prior to the July 15th hearing, Document 196 included this warning:

Do I detect a hint of sarcasm in referencing Steele as “a self-declared Nobel Peace Prize nominee”?

The honorable United States District Judge M. Hannah Lauck has had her patience repeatedly tested by the participants in this lawsuit. When a Judge uses the word obstreperous, i.e. noisy and difficult to control, that is a clear warning that the Court is seriously considering sanctions.

For example, the Court declared in a July 2, 2020, Memorandum Opinion (Doc. 196), “Having invoked the power of a federal court to launch suit, an embarred attorney such as Mr. Biss is expected to meet all court deadlines as directed, especially  when interacting with a pro se defendant.  This quibbling over electronic format is obstreperous and a waste of judicial resources.  A self-declared Nobel Peace Prize nominee such as Steele, (Compl. ¶1), should be able to resolve these discovery differences, especially with counsel governing the process.” [bolding added].

“In the event that the Parties cannot reach agreement, both Parties will face sanctions as specified below.  Given the breakdown in communication between the Parties on such a fundamental matter, the Court will deny the Motion to Compel and declines to award attorney’s fees to Plaintiffs for their costs incurred in responding to the Motion to Compel.”

Thomas Schoenberger is named, among others, in a Jason Goodman conspiracy theory 

On page 11 of Document 196, Judge Lauck mentions that “In his Motion to Disqualify, Goodman states that the supposed conspiracy involved “[Steele], [Mr.] Biss, Negron, Webb, Sweigert, Chavez, S[c]hoenberger, Cornwell, Holmseth and others.” (Mot. Disqualify 14.)  Given the number of other individuals with knowledge of the conspiracy who Goodman could call to testify, Mr. Biss’s testimony likely would be “cumulative and add little to the other evidence” and is therefore “substantially less than necessary.”

Continuing, Judge Lauck states, “The Court does not discount the serious ethical violation Mr. Goodman’s submission raises.  But at this state of the litigation, Goodman has not met his heavy burden of demonstrating that Mr. Biss would prove a necessary witness at trial.  The Court will therefore deny the Motion to Disqualify.

Footnote 10 to the above statement says,

What all of  this references is Jason Goodman’s statement that Mr. Biss “engaged in unethical conduct by participating in the formulation and execution of a plan to bring multiple civil lawsuits against [Goodman] in jurisdictions around the United States.” (Id.8.)”.

“In support of this scheme, Mr. Biss allegedly paid an individual, Manuel Chavez III, to ‘produce false evidence against [Goodman] and to supply this evidence to [Mr.] Biss for use in this instant legal matter.”  (Id.)  Goodman claims Chavez ‘approached [Goodman] volunteering to provide emails,’ several of which Goodman attaches to the Motion to Disqualify.  (Id 10.) One of these emails reveals a communication between Plaintiff Steele and Chavez, with Steele telling Chavez, ’email to [Mr. B]iss by tomorrow 0900 eastern detailing what you have collected that connects Goodman to Brock and Arnon Milchan.  [F]eel free to tell him you want to support my case in return for a percentage.’ (Mot. Disqualify Ex. C ‘October 22, 2017 Email,’ ECF No. 165-3.)”.

This plot to extort money and chill the speech of broadcast  journalist Jason Goodman of Crowdsource the Truth is noted in the screenshot below:

For further reading of Document 196, see [ rds vs goodman doc 196 702 2020].

Goodman seeks Relief from Judgement or Order by explaining how his conspiracy theories have come to life

On July 7, 2020, Document 198 [rds vs goodman doc 198 707 2020] was filed by defendant Jason Goodman seeking “relief with good cause and based on information discovered after July 2, 2020.  This new information (bolding added) causes Defendant to believe that evidence already in the record indicates fraud on the court by the opposing party coordinated and overseen by Counsel for Plaintiff Steven Scott Biss.  This new information causes Defendant to believe Mr. Biss would be a necessary witness whose testimony would touch all relevant matters in this action and which no other party or non-party could provide.”

On page 2, Jason Goodman explained, “Defendant believes this lawsuit was a preconceived plan to use military intelligence and asymmetric warfare tactics in the legal system, social media and real-world scenarios to extort money from Defendant.  Defendant believes Plaintiff enlisted Steve Scott Biss (Mr. Biss) to orchestrate this conspiracy and that Mr. Biss will be a necessary witness whose testimony will touch every relevant matter in the Amended Complaint.”

Jason Goodman then describes to the Court, the military intelligence backgrounds of  Robert David Steele [USMC, CIA, MCIA] and attorney Biss who received a BA in American History and Military Intelligence at Princeton University.

Item 4 of Document 198 states, “Defendant believes the Maneuver Warfare doctrine has been adapted by Steele and Biss and applied to a civilian attack strategy utilizing cyber harassment, real-world harassment and abusive lawsuits…Each of the non-parties who have presented themselves in this case have participated in the “variety of rapid, focused, and unexpected actions” which have made it extremely difficult for Defendant to cope.  Defendant believes any Maneuver Lawfare campaign would inherently have to be coordinated by the Counsel for Plaintiff because any other party or non-party would be subject to being called as a witness.”

Then Jason Goodman discusses the use of operational plants and double agents, and he asserts that “Mr. Biss is the Controlling Officer of Deception (COD) in this lawsuit and he has coordinated double agents including Holmes, Negron, Chavez and others.”

Nah, he couldn’t be talking about Tracking the Leopard Meroz, could he?

Finally, Jason Goodman states, “It is Defendant’s belief that each of the non-parties who submitted filings are also operational plants in the scheme.  Each of these individuals have taken actions online or in the real world to frustrate Goodman and complicate his ability to defend this lawsuit.  Each carried out a minor role in the organized harrassment and defamation of Goodman, which cumulatively have had a substantial deleterious effect.  Perhaps the most notable is intervenor applicant D. George Sweigert (Sweigert), the brother of Steele’s associate George Webb (Webb)….”.

It is doubtful that Jason Goodman can evade his accountability for defamatory statements he made in 2017, by introducing wild conspiracy theories just before this case goes to trial next month.

In addition to the persons named by Jason Goodman in these most recent court documents as co-conspirators, it must be recalled that he introduced another long list of third party co-conspirators in Document 78.  In response to those false allegations, four non-parties filed affidavits to refute Jason Goodman, including yours truly, the author of Tracking the Leopard Meroz. The Judge ruled against Jason Goodman’s conspiracy theories at that time; thus rendering the four affidavits moot.

In the meantime, Tracking the Leopard Meroz will continue its rapid, focused, and unexpected actions in reporting on any new developments in this lawsuit.

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 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 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.
