OMSJ is not Closing. Clark Baker is not Retiring. New Day. New Lies.

Over a month ago, on June 19, I reported that Clark Baker was threatening to close OMSJ and retire. This information came from two sources. One was a personal email from Mr. Baker to a source that I will not name. Now Mr. Baker has made this public. Three weeks later, on July 12, Baker posted this somewhat strange item on the How Positive Are You? facebook page:

Clark Baker They destroyed OMSJ as well… Now that I know the US Gov’t KNOWS, there’s no point for me to fight any longer. This IS a war and they WILL crush you… not me – I’m retired from this fight. July 12 at 10:47am

Who knows what Baker is referring to when he writes “they destroyed OMSJ as well” and “now that the US Gov’t KNOWS” …but he sure sounds paranoid. It really does not matter. I believe it is all a ruse; a scam; a grift. Baker is flat out lying. He may be trying a last ditch effort to get donations to his pathetic money beg (which has failed to get even one more dollar) or he may just be trying to throw off the scent of mine and Dr. Murtagh’s attorneys in support of his fakeruptcy. Whatever his reasons for this new lie, one thing is definite: Baker has recruited others in the top tiers of the AIDS Denial ranks to stoke the fires.

First is it worth noting that Baker’s pronouncement had a direct impact on the sycophant AIDS Denialists:

But the most interesting responses have come from those who are really in the know: Celia Farber, Elizabeth Ely, Michael Terry and David Crowe.

Elizabeth Ely and Michael Terry both promised to “report” on the closing. First it was Ely who promised to provide details the day after Baker’s big pronouncement:

Elizabeth Ely

July 13 at 12:57pm Yes, I already know about the closing of OMSJ. . . . I will be posting a report on that soon (probably tomorrow), from where I sit here in Michigan, enjoying the good life. Chill, relax, pour yourself a cold something-or-other, hug someone you love and remember to be respectful on this page. Our work continues. Thanks and much love! xoBeth

Her promise to report information for her readers has gone unfulfilled two weeks later.

Then Micheal Terry made an equally hollow promise directly to Ms. Farber who opined on two different occasions at two different facebook pages. First at HPAY?:

Celia Ingrid Farber Does anybody have info?

Of course that query seems a bit disingenuous. Just one day before Ms. Farber seemed to have the answer:

Then five days later, Ms. Farber moves her query to the ReThinking AIDS facebook page:

Celia Ingrid Farber

July 19 at 9:39pm What is the status of OMSJ? Can anybody tell the story in a forthright manner? Just report it?

This is when Terry Michael takes the bait and makes his (so far) unfulfilled promise:

I believe that both Elizabeth Ely and Terry Michael spoke out of turn and that is why neither has fulfilled their promise to report on the closing of OMSJ. I would bet all the money I have made as a Big Pharma shill that Clark Baker contacted them both and told them to cool their jets and shut the hell up about providing details. He only wanted to create a fake publicity stunt. He has no intention of following through with such a ridiculous statement about closing OMSJ or retiring. That statement was only meant to supply credence to his fakeruptcy and garner some sympathy that might translate to donations. (It has not.)

I can supply proof to support my hypothesis. One is based on logic and the other is based on facts. Let’s first go with logic. It’s a lot more fun.

Logic: Celia Farber

Ms. Farber is a terrible actress. Her constant inquiries to find information about the closing of OMSJ on two different facebook pages is ridiculous in the extreme. Why would Ms. Farber be feigning ignorance and begging for information from others? She is supposedly an Investigative Journalist. She not only has years of experience she also has her own website, The Truth Barrier, and she is good friends with the horses’ mouth himself: Clark Baker. Ms. Farber could just call up Baker and interview him and provide a riveting expose herself. And yet she begged and pleaded for information on two different facebook pages. Give me a break!

Not only is Ms. Farber friends with Clark Baker, she is also friends with David Rasnick whom Elizabeth Ely flatly stated knows the most about the situation. Ely even responded as such to Ms. Farber 3 days before her hollow request for information on the RA facebook page:

In short, Farber could report on this herself and could get the most publicity for the atrocity of the faked forced closing of OMSJ. Farber has the connections from her days as a one-time legitimate reporter and the cache of being associated with SPIN magazine. She also has the ear of Gary Null and Robert Scott Bell who between them literally have tens of millions of listeners. But she is offending the intelligence of the RA and HPAY? community by feigning ignorance and begging for information from wannabes like Elizabeth Ely and hacks like Michael Terry.

Hell, maybe I am wrong. If you look at Farber’s facebook page she is constantly whining and moaning about the pathetic state of Investigative Journalism in America but doing nothing about it herself. Farber is just a pathetic example of a recalcitrant has-been and Baker is gleefully and unapologetically taking advantage of Farber’s weak emotional state.

Facts: David Crowe & Viral Forenscis

Interestingly the most honest and illuminating information came from David Crowe in the following exchange:

Mr. Crowe writes two very important and surprisingly honest details:

  1. “The work will continue under a different name.” Yes, I already knew that. The name is Viral Forensics. And the website is back up just as I predicted.
  2. “Well, where it’s coming from is a bit mysterious.” No, it’s not. I already explained that as well.

Clark Baker has no intentions of retiring and he will simply shift his scam from OMSJ to Viral Forensics. And I am so glad the site is back up so I can write a detailed report on that shell game soon. If you have any doubt that Viral Forensics is OMSJ reincarnated, then check out the website. OMSJ is all over the Viral Forensics website. The Viral Forensics logo can be found on the OMSJ website. And the mailing address for each entity is the same:

PO BOX 1507

Viral Forensics Contact:

Mailing Address:
Viral Forensics LLC
PO Box 1507
Studio City, CA 91614-0507

To sum this all up: Clark Baker is lying about OMSJ closing. Clark Baker is lying about retiring. Celia Farber, Elizabeth Ely, Terry Michael, David Rasnick and David Crowe are all in on the lie. I have to wonder how those who follow ReThinking AIDS and those who support the dissident “theory” feel about being lied to and manipulated about this for the past couple of weeks by their leaders? How can they trust these people again?

OMSJ: An Impotent Organization

I am not even sure why Clark Baker is making such a big deal about this in the first place. After all, OMSJ has never done anything meaningful or substantial. On the “Legal Notices” section of the OMSJ website you will find this statement:

The Office of Medical & Scientific Justice is a 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation, engaged in the mission of protecting and defending the integrity of the medical and scientific community by providing CONFIDENTIAL investigative resources to the victims and witnesses of medical and scientific corruption.

This statement is important for two reasons:

  • First of all, a 501(c)(3) is a non-profit designation. And Mr. Baker has been profiting on the few services he actually provides. He charged several thousand dollars for his work with the HIV Innocence Group. He also charged $1,500.00 for his Operation Letterhead. His 501(c)(3) non-profit designation will soon be taken from him and Baker will be responsible for thousands of dollars in fines.
  • Secondly, Mr. Baker falsely claims that his services are CONFIDENTIAL (emphasis Baker). Just one look at the only service that Baker truly provided, HIV Innocence Group, and it is obvious that nothing Baker does is CONFIDENTIAL.

One look at the “Services” section of the OMSJ website and you will see that Baker only offers three services:

1. The HIV Innocence Group.

That organization is dead and has been for almost two years. And as I detailed with this summary, most of Baker’s claimed successes were either outright exaggerations or blatant lies.

2. Operation Letterhead.

Here is the description on the OMSJ site:

Operation Letterhead is a fee-based service that helps patients secure second opinions about their infectious disease diagnosis. 

In actuality it is a series of letters to the client’s physician challenging their diagnosis that will make the client/patient come across as delusional. Here is a more complete description of the “service” also found on the OMSJ site:

For a flat service fee of $1500, OMSJ will prepare customized correspondence for patients whose questions about their own testing, diagnosis and treatment remain unanswered.  OMSJ’s consultants will review your case and prepare a series of carefully written letters for our clients.

And then when you click on the Terms and Conditions section at the OMSJ site for Operation Letterhead, you will find this amazingly contradictory statement:

This Consulting Agreement (the “Agreement”) is entered into TODAY  between the APPLICANT (you) and Office of Medical and Scientific Justice, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, having its principal offices at Irvine, California.

Right there Baker tells his perspective “client” that his organization is a Non-Profit but he is still going to charge them $1,500.00 for this service. WTF? I can’t make this shit up!

3. Medical, Scientific or Academic Retaliation

This one is a non-starter. I have no info on this, but I highly doubt that anyone in such a predicament would hire a man who has devoted the last decade of his life to the harassment of just such a person: Dr. James Murtagh. That’s right. Dr. Murtagh came to Baker’s attention as a whistle blower at Emory University. The hypocrisy of this one is absolutely mind boggling.

And Clark Baker knows he is full of shit and that OMSJ is just a vanity project whose only real objective is to service his overblown ego. Baker admitted as much one year ago on the OMSJ facebook page:

OMSJ has upgraded our website to serve more as an aggregate (like Drudge Report), delivering hourly updates on stories related to medical and scientific corruption. For timely reports about medical and scientific corruption, visit our website.

OMSJ offers no real services and Baker admitted as much with the above “change” in his website. Baker also threw in the towel one year ago when he changed his site to a revenue generating clickbait site. Clark Baker is nothing but a pathetic liar with no real skill set and should not be pitied. He should be punished for perpetrating such an obscene fraud on the general public and having the audacity to profit from other peoples’ misery.


Fear and Desperation in Los Angeles: Clark Baker’s Life & Lies are Crumbling

The saga of Clark Baker’s very bad behavior is about to come to an abrupt halt and it will not be pretty for Mr. Baker.  About a week ago Baker filed bankruptcy to put an immediate stop to the two lawsuits that are crashing down on him. Baker sees the writing on the wall and filing bankruptcy is the final, desperate act of a drowning man. This move will only temporarily halt all proceedings. My lawsuit ended many months ago, but my attorneys are still seeking $58K in fees. But that is a fraction of the sum Baker will have to pay Dr. Murtagh. Baker’s main problem is trying to defend himself against Dr. Murtagh when his conduct is indefensible.

Baker has had a series of rulings against him as well as two different law firms bail out on him. The last firm begged the judge to let them out of the case a mere two weeks after agreeing to represent Mr. Baker. Ironically the firm is that of Kevin McDermott, the attorney who prevailed in the appeal of Sgt. David Gutierrez. The only scenario I can see for this sudden departure is that Mr. Baker was not honest with his new attorneys.  Mr. Baker is an uncontrollable client. He has not complied with one ruling against him nor has he paid the $60K in attorney fees he was ordered to pay two months ago. And there is still the matter of the Sanctions which stem from Mr. Baker sending out fraudulent subpoenas.

I was going to write a lengthy post detailing all the rulings and how Baker has made a mockery of the courts and the justice system in both cases and why bankruptcy protection will ultimately fail. But I decided that would get in the way of telling the real story that needs to be told: The story of how Clark Baker got himself into this horrible mess.

Almost 10 years ago Clark Baker and Dr. Murtagh crossed paths. Most people know some of the story about Farber and Deusberg and The Clean Hands Award and The Semmelweiss Society. The details and specifics of why the two men had differing opinions and why they disliked each other are basically irrelevant. The behavior that Clark Baker has engaged in over the past decade would only be warranted if Dr. Murtagh had beaten up Baker’s parents or raped his daughter or some such heinous act. But that is not the case. The only thing I can think of to explain the decade long, systematic, persistent, relentless and uncontrollable quest to ruin Dr. Murtagh’s personal and professional life is that Clark Baker may be mentally unstable.  I am not a psychologist and I am not making a diagnosis here, but I can think of no other explanation. No rational person who is mentally stable and living a happy, productive and worthwhile life would go to the extreme lengths that Mr. Baker has over the past decade.

This is only my opinion. I will lay out the facts and let the readers decide for themselves. You can follow these facts in Dr. Murtagh’s Third Amended Complaint for yourself.

The Websites

As I have reported before, Clark Baker put up a website with the express purpose of interfering with Dr. Murtagh’s employment. The website was Here is the exact wording from the Welcome Page of that site:

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 is completely unambiguous and clearly shows the exact nature of this (and future) websites.

We all know that with the advent of Google, every employer now “googles” the name of potential employees. Not only did Clark Baker provide information expressly intended to defame Dr. Murtagh in this site, Mr. Baker could also see and track each and every person/company and IP address of whomever clicked on his site. Again, all this information is included in the link above to the Third Amended Complaint. When Mr. Baker would see that a specific employer was looking at his site, Mr. Baker would contact that employer either on the phone, in writing or both. This went on for years. Dr. Murtagh lost job, after job, after job. Not because there was any information in the site that made Dr. Murtagh a potentially bad employee, but the employer (hospitals) did not want any negative attention whatsoever. I know this from personal experience.

Do not forget, Clark Baker called my employer, Baylor Healthcare System, 6 times, every 6 months, like clockwork when I wrote Dissidents4Dumbees. Although Human Resources acknowledged to me that every time HR and IT researched the specific complaint they found absolutely nothing that I had done wrong. I had done nothing to disgrace the hospital, break their rules or break the law. But they expended many man-hours researching each complaint. And although they knew I was not at fault, they were incredibly tired of wasting time, man-hours, resources and most importantly, money, following up on these bogus complaints. (I am sure that Mr. Baker never gave a single thought about the precious time wasted by many people because he is a selfish, self-centered egomaniac who thinks no one’s time is important but his.) Baylor ultimately gave me a choice: end the blog and your First Amendment Rights, or we will fire you. Although I had a great and winnable lawsuit against Baylor for this ultimatum, I acquiesced and deleted my blog. So I personally know the stress and hardship of this type of bogus harassment.

Once Dr. Murtagh finally reached his breaking point, he filed arbitration against Clark Baker for the defamatory site. Baker lost overwhelmingly and the verdict was that he must take down the site because he was breaking the law. Baker complied with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of the law. Baker put up a mirror site, I reported on that new mirror-site. After reading my report on this new development, Baker changed the url address to Baker also put up a site called with his partner-in-crime, attorney David Pardo. That site also contained the same defamatory information.

Within the last month or so a new website has appeared (and is still active):

This is the exact url that the WIPO arbitration panel said Mr. Baker must take down, just with the addition of “wordpress” in the address.

Not only has Clark Baker given-the-finger to the arbitration body many times, he is blatantly breaking his oath to the licensing agency of the California Private Investigators. But this is nothing new in that regard. All of Baker’s bad behavior in targeting and harassing Dr. Murtagh’s employment (as well as mine) is also in direct conflict with his sworn oath as a licensed Private Investigator.

Cyber Stalking, Actual Stalking, Pinging & Spoofing

All of the above information about Clark Baker tracking IP addresses via his unlawful websites constitutes cyber-stalking and it is also in direct violation of his oath as a licensed California Private Investigator. But all of this insane behavior does not stop there. Clark Baker actually went to Atlanta, GA., crossing state lines, to stalk Dr. Murtagh’s girlfriend. How does physically stalking an actual female sit with the readers’ conscious? Can you imagine someone stalking your girlfriend, wife, sister, mother or grandmother? This is nothing out of the ordinary for Clark Baker.

I also have direct, personal experience with this. Clark Baker called my then 65 year old mother on the phone to scare, intimidate and harass her. Mr. Baker told my mother that he was going to sue me and in the process he was going to take her house away from her. He also told her that from his experience as an ex-officer with the LAPD, he could tell that I was psychotic and would kill her in her sleep. You can see that in my own mother’s Declaration in my lawsuit.

Mr. Baker has also used the illegal tactics of “pinging” Dr. Murtagh’s cell phone. That is illegal pursuant to the Telephone Records and Privacy Protection Act of 2006. The Third Amended Complaint provides proof of Mr. Baker bragging about “pinging” Dr. Murtagh’s cell phone to find his location.

Mr. Baker would also employ the illegal tactic of “spoofing” to find Dr. Murtagh’s location. There is proof of this as well in the Third Amended Complaint and it all starts on the paragraph marked “30”. Mr. Baker used me to spoof Dr. Murtagh by changing the “g” in my email address to a “q”. Very clever indeed because who would notice such a thing? I know I did not notice it when I first saw it. It had to be brought to my attention.

Are you convinced, dear reader, that Clark Baker is a deceptive liar with questionable mental health? Keep in mind that this went on for almost 10 years. And it was not just every once in a while for twisted kicks. Mr. Baker engaged in this behavior on a daily basis. God knows how much time he spent creating his websites and adding information and checking to see which employers were reading the sites and then contacting those employers. He wrote letters. He called them on the phone. What kind of sick and twisted individual does that?

And now that his fun and games should be over he will not even man up and stop his behavior. He flaunts rulings by creating mirror sites: Not one. Not two. Not three but at least four new websites. And he has yet to cough up the $60K that a California judge ordered him to pay almost two months ago.

And do not forget that much of his behavior over the past decade has been illegal. And do not forget that he is a licensed Private Investigator and ex-cop who is flagrantly breaking the law and not living up to his sworn oath as a PI.

And even during the lawsuit Mr. Baker sent out fraudulent subpoenas to many different individuals and companies. That is why he was sanctioned.

I could go on. But what is the point? If you, dear reader, are still a supporter of Clark Baker perhaps you could get a groupon for a psychiatrist. Baker would need it. After all, he did just file for bankruptcy. Or perhaps Dr. Seth Kalichman would be willing to treat you.

BTW, Baker’s bankruptcy is also a lie. (I am now calling it his FAKEruptcy). As I pointed out recently, his wife is worth $220,000,000.00. But the original link has disappeared since Mr. Baker filed his fakerupcty. It looks like Baker is trying to hide his assets from the bankruptcy court. Luckily the Wayback Machine still has it.

And Baker lives in a mansion worth $1.6 Million.

And Baker also started a new business, Viral Forensics. I also reported on that recently. Strangely that website has also disappeared for now. Another deceptive (and futile) attempt by Mr. Baker to hide his assets and income.

And one week after filing fakeruptcy Baker not only took a very expensive vacation to a spa that cost close to $2,000 per night at Amangiri. He also had the stupidity audacity to flaunt it on facebook:

Nice time for a road trip…— at Amangiri.

The lies, deception, manipulation, duplicity and law breaking all seem to continue no matter what is happening in Mr. Baker’s life. I wonder if he has a problem?
