This is the second fund raising request set up for Clark Baker and OMSJ in the past few days. For each fund raiser there is a synopsis that describes why the funds are needed. In the first donation request I detailed six examples from the synopsis that where completely untrue proving that Baker is grossly misleading those individuals who might donate. While the numbers of untrue statements in the synopsis for the second fund raiser have decreased, the audacity of the misinformation has increased exponentially.
Clark Baker is claiming that the entire pharmaceutical industry is out to destroy him and OMSJ via a legal “proxy war” headed up by Dr. Robert Gallo:
…the pharmaceutical industry now wages a legal proxy war that could destroy OMSJ.
…disgraced HIV discoverer Robert Gallo MD uses activists like Jeffery Todd DeShong and James Murtagh MD to wage a legal war against Baker and OMSJ in hopes of destroying the organization and Baker’s reputation.
Robert Gallo’s proxy war has cost OMSJ more than $200,000 to defend itself from false claims, including two meritless lawsuits filed by Dr. Murtagh.
Just let that sink in for a moment. Clark Baker thinks he is so important that an entire industry is threatened by him and must resort to clandestine legal measures to stop him. Such delusions of grandeur and wild conspiracy theory rationale should give pause to anyone considering donating to this cause. However, if one does believe this could be true, let me explain why it is 100% false.
The most definitive way I can prove this is false is personal experience. I am Jeffrey Todd DeShong, the activist supposedly helping to wage a legal war against Mr. Baker. Although I was involved in a legal lawsuit with Clark Baker, it was Baker who waged the lawsuit. I was the defendant. The only part Dr. Gallo played in the suit was in Mr. Baker’s fantasy. As I have reported before, Mr. Baker told me during a phone call that he was going to sue me so that he could depose Dr. Gallo. After that phone call I found evidence where Mr. Baker expounded on this fantasy in a radio interview on The Robert Scott Bell Show dated July 14, 2011. Mr. Baker said the following:
1:22:56 CB: Actually Robert Gallo received a subpoena on one of our cases as well as last year. As did Sam Broder who is behind the AZT debacle and both of them basically forwarded their subpoenas to the NIH. The NIH stonewalls such subpoenas they don’t listen to State subpoenas. They simply ignore them. And it cost so much time and energy we basically learned in our future subpoenas to them they will be Federal Subpoenas. And Federal Courts don’t let the NIH ignore such things.
Mr. Baker filed a lawsuit against me in Federal Court after having already lost to me in arbitration. Mr. Baker lost all three points of the arbitration and was found guilty of Reverse Domain Hijacking, the arbitration equivalent of “bad faith”. Baker should have known after that ruling that suing me in Federal Court was a loser case and yet he did it solely as a vehicle to depose Dr. Gallo. Baker lost in Federal Court and then appealed and lost again. That was easily a $150,000 gamble that did not pay off.
If my goal was the economic destruction of Baker and OMSJ, my attorneys would have pressed for discovery and depositions instead of dismissal. The amount of billable hours for Baker’s attorneys during discovery and depositions could easily have quadrupled the above figure. Instead my pro-bono attorneys took the least expensive strategy of getting the case dismissed. From these indisputable facts it is obvious that Mr. Baker is being fundamentally dishonest. Baker is trying to manipulate others into paying for his ego-driven bad debt.
The only other person Mr. Baker specifically names as part of this sinister, nefarious cabal out to destroy him via the legal system is Dr. James Murtagh. The synopsis states:
Robert Gallo’s proxy war has cost OMSJ more than $200,000 to defend itself from false claims, including two meritless lawsuits filed by Dr. Murtagh. Trial is set for October 2015, and OMSJ needs at least another $200,000 to defend itself.
This is also blatantly false. Dr. Murtagh is suing Mr. Baker to stop Baker’s systematic, 7 year harassment of his employment. Baker has set up several defamatory websites about Dr. Murtagh with the intent of employment harassment. The statement below is found on the home page of JamesMurtaghMDTruth.com (formerly JamesMurtaghMD.com and formerly JamesMurtaghMDPsycho.com) and also on Propagandists.org:
WELCOME to the unofficial page of James J. Murtagh, MD. Its purpose is not to defame the former Emory University professor, but to provide hospitals and “locum tenens” staffing agencies easy access to publicly-available court documents about Dr. Murtagh’s ongoing conduct and behavior. Visitors are encouraged to verify the authenticity of all documents with the appropriate judicial jurisdictions before making any hiring decisions based upon these court records.
That statement is painfully obvious why the websites exist and prove that Dr. Murtagh’s lawsuits are not “without merit”. They were to stop the on-going employment harassment. They have nothing to do with pharma, HIV/AIDS or Dr. Gallo. So far the courts have agreed with Dr. Murtagh and I have detailed three major losses Clark Baker suffered as a result of Dr. Murtagh’s legitimate suits.
Again, for Mr. Baker to make such fundamentally false claims shows just how desperate he is to manipulate people to donate and help get him out of a legal mess of his own making.
Mr. Baker can not get his stories straight. The first funding site to benefit Sgt. David Gutierrez contradicts the information presented at Baker’s second funding site for OMSJ Defense. At the first site we see:
…corrupt doctors working for so-called HIV co-discoverer Robert Gallo MD have filed a lawsuit and expensive motions in an effort to bankrupt OMSJ and prevent them from effectively defending Gutierrez.
Here Baker uses the plural “corrupt doctors” that are all working for Dr. Gallo in a coordinated effort to brind him down. But as you can see from the second funding site and what I have detailed here, it is just myself and Dr. Murtagh. That’s it. And when a person can’t keep their story straight and has to resort to exaggerations, misinformation and complete dishonesty to maniplate people out of their money, some tough questions need to be asked.
The truth is, Clark Baker’s reckless ego got him into a financial quagmire and he is asking others to bail him out to the tune of $200,000. The most egregious part of this request is that Mr. Baker does not have the personal integrity or respect for others to be honest about why he needs the money.
