Joan Shenton’s New Doc, Criminally False, Is Criminally Untruthful

I am amazed and dumbfounded that Joan Shenton’s new documentary, Criminally False, is so utterly deceptive and downright untruthful. Can something that is only 11 minutes even be considered a documentary? It certainly does not provide adequate time to fully dissect and explain a situation. Perhaps that is why this documentary is so bad.

The Press Release for the very short film makes a definitive proclamation about what it attempts to accomplish; prove that HIV tests are unreliable in a court of law. (Why the legal system is the arbiter instead of the scientific method is never explained.)

“The new 11 minute film, Criminally False, explores what happened when the HIV test, almost universally relied on to judge whether or not people are HIV+, was itself tested for reliability under the rigours of the criminal courts, with legally ground-breaking results.”

However, the film ultimately fails because it provides zero proof to back up this grand pronouncement.

The documentary relies on two people to tell this story, both of whom were convicted and imprisoned for having sex with multiple partners without disclosing their HIV positive status. Using these two particular people provides two separate problems for this documentary.

The first person is called “Anton” (fake name to protect his identity). Here is what Joan Shenton says in the Press Release about Anton:

In telling Anton’s story, we’re asking if the HIV test stands up to legal scrutiny: does the test actually prove, to the standards required in a criminal trial, that someone who tests HIV+ is definitely carrying HIV, is likely to transmit it and is likely to cause harm? The manufacturers of the test want us to believe it is dependable but does the evidence for that stand up in court? Should Anton have been convicted?

This sounds very compelling and I would love to know the answers. The problem is, “Anton” is simply a prop. The documentary does not even attempt to tell Anton’s story, nor does it attempt to answer any of the questions posed in the above statement. In the documentary David Crowe, President of Re-Thinking AIDS, lobs irrelevant softball questions as the viewer stares at the back of Anton’s head. None of the questions are pertinent to the goal of the film. The entire interview is frustrating and weird. It reminded me of Clint Eastwood interviewing an empty chair at the 2012 RNC Convention. Shenton should be ashamed and embarrassed for putting this in the film.

The second subject is Sgt David Gutierrez. This is where the film really tries to score points and prove that HIV tests are worthless. But this too is a dismal failure. In the Press Release Ms. Shenton admits that the case had nothing to do with HIV tests:

The convicted airman was not accused of actually infecting anyone, only of having sex with them after a positive HIV test. His conviction was overturned because the US government could not prove that any of his acts were likely to transmit HIV to his partners or likely to cause them harm.

And that is the truth. The appeal turned on a legal definition: “Whether the evidence is legally insufficient to find beyond a reasonable doubt that appellant committed assault likely to result in grievous bodily harm.”

The appeal victory had nothing to do with the validity of HIV tests nor was the validity of HIV tests or HIV science ever called into question; quite the contrary, actually. In the oral arguments, which can be heard here, Attorney Kevin McDermott discusses Viral Load, transmission rates and the fact that HIV is now a chronic manageable disease thanks to HAART.

The final decision is here and it is clearly based on transmission rates from HIV expert Donna Sweet as well as the CDC, footnote #4:

We note that Dr. Sweet’s testimony is consistent with information on HIV transmission risk published by the Centers for Disease Control. See Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, (last updated July 1, 2014).

Why Joan Shenton even made such a dismal film in the first place is questionable.  The film never attempts to scrutinize the HIV tests nor provide any proof to support the proclamation of the Press Release. This film is obviously propaganda, but it is such poor propaganda that I am embarrassed not only for Joan, but for all of those involved.

Blog Note: The Press Release also blatantly tries to blame vaccines for causing False Positive HIV test results and this is also touched on in the film. This is an old and tired AIDS Denialist trope that I previously explained, quite well if I do say so myself, in this post which coincidentally was in relation to the Sgt David Gutierrez Case.

Brian Carter to Chris Janik: The Extremes of AIDS Denial

There is not much difference between Brian Carter and Chris Janik. Carter is American and Janik is German. Carter has been an avid AIDS denier since at least 2009: Janik since 2015. Their real differences showed most prominently when they became sick. They both went into the hospital and took antiretroviral medication or ARV’s. Carter, despite experiencing a Lazarus Effect thanks to ARV’s, doubled down on his denial whereas Janik was shocked back to reality and immediately eschewed denial. Part of Janik’s decision may have been influenced by the recent deaths of prominent AIDS denialists Yvonne Bonde and Greg Baysans. Bonde went on ARV’s when she got sick, but it was too late; she could not recover from a cd4 count of 20. Baysans was on ARV’s from 2005 to 2011. 

Here is what Janik had to say:


Aciclovir Infusions every 8 hours. And pain killer.
Please understand that it is my own decision to stay here, take this medicine and go this way.
The affected area is too big for me to chill and stay calm.

You will ask me and yourself which stress led to this disease. The last two years since stopping the ARV were too much for me.

Here and now I wish I never would read “Virus Mania” from Claus Koehnlein, never would visit Juliane Sacher, never watched movies like “I won’t go quietly” from Anne Sono, never joined Rethinking AIDS.

My life was wonderful, free of stress and enjoyable while believing in HIV and taking ARVs.

Yes, I had many side effects with that “medicine” but could manage them much more than the whole stress with “There is HIV. – There is no HIV.”

The truth: I am on my own at long last. Koehnlein is 8 hours away from me, Sacher is too expensive for me, HIV docs tell me to go on ARV and that I will die.

And every change on in my body is considered with fear and anxiety. Now 1,5 years after stopping the ARV I am at the worst case in my life: I have a suppressed immune system which led to the shingles and brought me straightaway to a hospital.

And you can pray again and again: “There is no HIV.”

It does not help.

Because of all things it was this sentence and the daily examining and reviewing of this words which ended up with this disease.

I know I am not the only one here who feels and thinks so.

Going this way is to show not the happy face only. Now I am going through a horrible time in my life. And this is also a part to be shown here.

Visit from the chief resident.

He immediately told me that the shingles (zoster) came from a suppressed immune system which is not from stress in my case but from HIV.

He likewise told me that the for a long time untreated virus hides itself in deeper tissues of the body and form a latent infection which weaks the body.

He said: “I can’t understand why you are treating your zoster but not the HIV. This is not rational for me.”

(I only told him before, that I stopped because of side effects not because of my believes to this issue).

This is the hell I was always afraid of…

Everything was fine as long as I was okay/healthy.

Now I am here and can make this experience how it feels to have an HIV + diagnosis and be surrounded by people who tell me I will die when I will not start as soon as possible.

And to hear this and live with what was said does not make the shingles AND my immune system better!

So encouraging at this labile and unstable time for me. I am mentally weak and don’t have the power to show face.

That´s how it goes now!!!! And everyone here has the possibility to be involved.

Hopefully Janik will keep this rational mindset when he gets well and remember that it was modern medicine that healed him. Brian Carter however, is the type of AIDS Denialist that is most troubling and hypocritical. 
The next part of this post is not to start a fight with Brian nor to shame him. I am genuinely fascinated that someone could come so close to dying and instead of being grateful, become more bitter and angry. Brian has since doubled down on his angry rhetoric against the science of HIV.  However, the thing that really troubles me is that Brian was not forthcoming about what specifically made him so ill.  Brian only refers to “some brain injuries that led to a number or (sic) conditions” that “made me so sick”.  Brian was “so sick” for nine months, lost 50 pounds (off an already thin frame), and was even in a nursing home all from “brain injuries”, whatever that means. 
I find this lack of transparency troubling seeing that Brian wrote this post at ReThinking AIDS facebook page as an explanation as to his absence and a plea for advice. Brian wanted to know how to fool his doctors into believing he was taking his ARV’s so that he could get  his driver license back. 
Here is what Brian had to say:


Brian Carter

Hello members! The most of you might be wondering what the hell happened to me during the last 9 months. The first pic is when I was in the hospital and weighed only 101 lbs. the second pic is myself currently at 150 lbs. So I’m doing fine now, no more hospital and nursing homes. What made me so sick was that it seemed I had some brain injuries that led to a number or conditions I could not rectify by means of a naturopath doc. The problem I’m facing now is it’s difficult to pull myself away from the clutches of the HIV / AIDS meme. The doctors want to make me believe in them. They may have helped in some fashion that helped me pull through a ruff time. It’s not only the infectious disease specialists, but I have to deal with the neuroscience docs that want me to to comply as well, if I’m ever to regain my driving privileges back. This all sucks but I’m going to have to deal with them still, at least till I’m able to convince them they’re full of shit. I’m doing fine otherwise, trying to regain some assemblance of my previous life. At least I’ve no need nurses or doctors on a daily basis. I have my own apartment with my other half, Christopher. Thanks for listening.

Brian Carter

Brian Carter Thanks for replying Chris. You’re exactly right. They can tell if not in compliance. · September 11, 2016 at 6:09pm

Brian Carter

Brian Carter Greg. The problem remains the same as always. They use Viral load, etc… as beating stick. I was just reading the side effects of Genvoya (which they put me on)… What should I be more afraid of? High VL or acidosis? · September 12, 2016 at 10:53am

The person named “Greg” who Brian is conversing with is Greg Baysans who died a few months after this conversation. Also, I find it fascinating that Brian is worried about acidosis, a possible and rare side effect of Genvoya, when without it, he would quite possibly be dead: a side effect of not taking Genvoya.

Brian Carter

Brian Carter You’re right about food. When my appetite came back I was able to recover. · September 12, 2016 at 10:55am

Brian Carter

Brian Carter Gang, don’t get me wrong for it was the infectious disease specialist that put me on what I believe was Truvada in the hospital. Now I have to take Genvoya, which is a new fangled combo one a day combo. · September 13, 2016 at 7:45pm

Here Brian admits he was on Truvada, an ARV in the hospital and a different ARV, Genvoya upon release.

Brian Carter

Brian Carter Yes Greg. After years of saying and trying to stay away from the trap, there’s not much to do now other than pretend they’re right. It just sucks that it’s too much for them to find out what really happened instead of “Oh–middle aged gay man…boom–got to be HIV because we don’t know how to treat the real diseases. · September 25, 2016 at 10:58pm 

Brian Carter

Brian Carter How does one stay out of the trap? Refuse to take an HIV test. Remember that’s a hard thing to do because you showed up at your hospital, a gay man with a myriad of symptoms with blood drawn almost every waking second. · September 25, 2016 at 10:56pm 

Brian Carter

Brian Carter There’s so much stuff I could be doing– what I’m looking into is, Sevenpoint2 which is an greatly alkalizing protocol. My good friend Bonnie concurred leukemia with the help of this. When I used to measure my alkalinity in was always below ideal around a 9 or 8 when 6 was the target. No amount of diet, greens, wheatgrass, etc was ever able to raise it. · September 25, 2016 at 2:49am

After almost dying and being saved by Truvada, per Brian’s own admission, Brian is still trying to find nonsense alternative treatments. In the comment above, Brian shows his general ignorance of the human body. Blood is alkaline, stomach is acidic (to break down food for digestion) and urine fluctuates because that is one way the human body regulates pH. 

I recently criticized by an orthodox pundit (a complete moron) that how dare I make fun at that once a year hoopla World AIDS Day. Saying that since I got sick and started taking once a day anti-HIV therapy that I should be a shamed of myself and report that the drugs saved my life. I said, fuck off and that it wasn’t the drugs–it was I and I alone that pulled myself out of a life threatening illness. This video explains it.

In the comment above Brian is referring to me and claims that ARV’s did not improve his health. No, Brian claims he did it all by himself with the power of his own mind. And posted a short video on placebo effect to prove it.

I will stop here although there are many more examples of Brian’s angry comments about the “silliness” of HIV meds and the “madness” of HIV testing and the “looney tunes” of PrEP. Brian even recently stated: “I don’t believe in HIV whatsoever”. But the most important and glaring omission that is most telling in my opinion, is that Brian has never once mentioned the horrible, agonizing, debilitating side effects he has had from either Truvada or Genvoya. I asked him via a private message on facebook if he has had any side effects. Brian’s response was to block me, which he had not done until that single question. I guess that says it all.

My last

HIV Innocence Group: Happy 3 Year Deathiversary!

It has been a while since I have written a new post for this blog. But I realized that November is the anniversary month of the death of the HIV Innocence Group. It has now been three years since I humiliated Clark Baker by using this website to prove he was lying about his “wins” in court.

Baker is still around and is currently in litigation in another case where he is losing mightily and may well go to prison. I will write more about that when I can, but for now, here is the original post I wrote to celebrate the first deathiversary of the bogus and embarrassing HIV Innocence Group.


Discussing Clark Baker’s Business Model: Extortion Websites

Six years ago I originally set up this website to critique an organization called The HIV Innocence Group and prove that it was nothing more than a tool for Clark Baker to further the AIDS Denialist agenda via the U.S. Court System. I accomplished this goal and then some. Not only did I beat Clark Baker‘s phony attempts to silence my First Amendment Rights via the legal system through arbitration as well as in Federal Court, my attorneys also won $50K in legal fees (which Baker has never paid). My case also set a precedent in the Fifth Circuit Court.

I also exposed Clark Baker’s financier, Billionaire Robert Leppo, who I proved supported Baker to the tune of at least 1.5 Million Dollars in 5 short years.

Another unintentional but very happy result of this website is that I destroyed Baker’s HIV Innocence Group as well as his Office of Medical and Scientific Justice and saved countless lives in shutting down these dangerous organizations.

As I researched Clark Baker and his outright false claims about his supposed success with the HIV Innocence Group, I uncovered a myriad of nefarious dealings and found a man with dubious character and completely lacking in integrity and devoid of humanity.

I have relentlessly documented Mr. Baker’s very unhealthy and possibly psychotic focus on bringing down his enemies. Most notably I have documented Baker’s decade long attempt to ruin the life and career of Dr. James Murtagh. This is just one example of the many posts I have written that supports this claim.

In my research to document Baker’s demented attempts to ruin Dr. Murtagh’s life, I found a history of other people’s lives Baker also tried to ruin. And I discovered a pattern to his psychoses: Mr. Baker made countless highly derogatory websites about many people, including but not limited to: Lokesh Vuyyuru, Blake Moore, Ralph Bard, Kevin Kuritzky and James Murtagh. Some of these websites seemed to serve no purpose except as a vehicle that drove Baker’s psychotic joy. However, as time wore on, and as his websites became more sophisticated, Baker saw a chance to monetize these derogatory sites as this email clearly shows:

From: Clark Baker
Subject: RE: Court records request
Date: May 10, 2013 at 2:08 PM
To: David Pardo
Thanks – Mo’s website is a good model for what I’d like to offer to future clients. The prettier and more effective we make Mo’s website, the more others will want what we have. Nothing prevents me from sub-contracting the work to websites hosted in Amsterdam, Aruba, Kenya and the Ukraine if we’re concerned about lawsuits or retaliation.

This new business model that Baker discusses in the email above with Mr. Pardo has worked on two occassions that I know about:

1. Baker successfully used such a website to force Kevin Kuritzky into signing a false affidavit. I previously discussed this here.

In my last post two months ago, I also reported how this false affidavit may have amounted to Witness Tampering and may wind up sending Mr. Baker to jail. I also posted the Criminal Referral by Chief Bankruptcy Judge Sheri Bluebond to the California United States Attorney.

2. Baker is now involved in another lawsuit in which he used a similar website to force another witness into possible false testimony. This lengthy Motion for Sanctions expertly details Baker’s actions in this instance. Motion for Sanctions NTG

I believe all these instances prove that Mr. Baker found a model that worked and he successfully implemented and monetized this model. In the last instance Mr. Baker may have made over $25,000.00!

It is also interesting to note that Mr. Baker knew what he was doing was wrong when he had John McNair in Australia use his name in setting up the website instead of Baker’s name. Baker admits that he is actually the owner of this site. Baker also admits what he was doing was wrong by setting up the domain to the site in Amesterdam, one of the countries he mentioned in the above email with Mr. Pardo.

All of these examples show a man with no regard for destroying the lives of his supposed enemies or even the lives of strangers, either for sport or for money.

Clark Baker May Be Going To Jail

It has been 10 months since I posted anything to this blog. There has been no need since I destroyed Clark Baker in a Texas Federal Court effectively killing his HIV Innocence Group as well as his Office of Medical and Scientific Justice. I also exposed Clark Baker’s financial ties to billionare Robert Leppo proving that Leppo funded Baker’s borderline criminal behavior to the tune of $1.5 Million Dollars over a 4 year period.

Now I can come out of semi-retirement to let the world know that Clark Baker committed Witness Tampering, a felony, in the case of Murtagh V. Baker, which I have written about previously.

Here is the Criminal Referral by Chief Bankruptcy Judge Sheri Bluebond to the California United States Attorney.

This witness tampering is based on an affidavit that I also wrote about previously.  In that post I detailed my belief that Clark Baker forced Kevin Kuritzky into signing a false affidavit by manipulation and promises of quid pro quo.  This affidavit falsely claimed that Dr. Murtagh forced Kuritzky into some very bad behavior to harass Mr. Baker.  Now, almost three years later, I am proven right as Mr. Kuritzky came forward and admitted how Mr. Baker lied, manipulated and coerced him into making a false affidavit. You can see from the Criminal Referral that I linked above, most of the deductions I made from the evidence I had in 2014 were absolutely true.

I also find this new development quite satisfying because it was not too long ago that Mr. Baker falsely accused Captain Mark Rosenow of Witness Tampering in the David Guitterez Case which also negatively impacted the Nushawn Williams Case.  I have only provided two examples from Baker’s old OMSJ site. But Baker repeatedly made these false allegations against Captain Rosenow in social media as well as in several declarations in Baker’s case against me.  As they say, Karma is a bitch!

Here is Clark Baker’s attempt to legally plead the 5th Amendment against self incrimination regrading Judge Bluebond’s Criminal Referral to the California Attorney General. Pleading the 5th is not something that people who are innocent usually do.  It was also a waste of time because the current legal action is a civil case. This is a rookie mistake and shows the desperation Baker and his legal team must be feeling at the moment.

Rulings that Judge Bluebond also leveraged against Mr. Baker include a $35,000.00 sanction.

This case has been dragging on because Mr. Baker thought he was smart by filing bankruptcy fakeruptcy eventhough his wife is worth $220 Million as I have reported before, and Baker has a personal financier in billionaire Robert Leppo.  And this little fakeruptcy may have paid off. But Mr. Baker is such an egomaniac and a horrible human being that he had to go the extra step and possibly commit Witness Tampering which will hopefully put him where he belongs; in jail.



Clark Baker Loses Again; Sets Precedent in Fifth Circuit Court

When Clark Baker filed a trademark infringement lawsuit against me in Texas Federal Court three years ago, he knew his case was a loser. He had just lost arbitration against me on the exact same grounds and the arbitration panel found him guilty of Reverse Domain Name Hijacking; the equivalent of filing in bad faith.  Baker had even hired a law firm that specialized in trademark law to handle the arbitration and he still lost; so there is no way he thought he could win in court. What Baker was really doing was trying to shut me up by shutting down my website. Baker did not think I would be able to find an attorney to handle the case and I would have no option but to forfeit.

Baker lost the case and was too arrogant and stupid to stop there. He appealed and lost the appeal. After the appeal my attorneys went after him for fees but they lost as my attorney Paul Levy knew they would. Mr. Levy knew how the Fifth Circuit interpreted the term “exceptional” (as Mr. Levy explains here). But Mr. Levy also knew that the U.S. Supreme Court had recently settled the matter in a case known as Octane Fitness. Mr. Levy appealed and the appellate court reversed the fee decision, thus setting a precedent in the Fifth Circuit.

It’s ironic that it took a crooked cop and Private Investigator of questionable morals to file a bogus lawsuit that would eventually set a legal precedent that will make it harder for bullies like Clark Baker to continue their bullying behavior.  And this should be a lesson to Robert Leppo, the billionaire who continues to fund Baker, to be more critical when choosing a thug to do your dirty work. At least get one who has more brains than arrogance.

Although they are extremely happy with the decision, my attorneys thought that Baker’s fakeruptcy would preclude them from actually collecting their fees. However, there is great news on this front; there is a hearing scheduled in Los Angeles May 24, 2016 to decide if Baker has abused the bankruptcy system. It looks promising that the judge will rule against Baker and throw out his bankruptcy. (It is even feasible that Baker will see the inside of a jail cell. More on that at as it develops.)

The news of this precedent has been picked up by Bloomberg BNA as well as Techdirt, along with JDSupra Advisor and of course, the site that started me on this winning streak, Popehat.

Future cases will quote from this Precedent Setting Decision to win against other bullies like Clark Baker. It looks like Clark Baker’s prediction that the HIV Innocence Group would go down in history was accurate; it’s only fitting that history will be a shameful one.


Expose’: Clark Baker/OMSJ Financial Relationship with Robert D. Leppo

In this post I will lay bare the financial relationship of Clark Baker/OMSJ (Office of Medical & Scientific Justice) to billionaire Robert D Leppo. I will also definitively prove the hypocrisy of Clark Baker because of this relationship and the possibly inappropriate ways these two men may have conspired. (Emphasis because I don’t want to get sued.) Lastly I will show that the leaders of ReThinking AIDS (RA) including Celia Farber, David Crowe, Elizabeth Ely, Henry Bauer, David Rasnick, Terry Michael, Christine Johnson and others were well aware of this relationship when they lied to the members of RA about the reason why OMSJ had gone out of business. They used this lie in an attempt to fraudulently obtain donations from members of RA and OMSJ sympathizers.

Clark Baker and other AIDS denialists have long claimed that anyone supporting the traditional science of HIV is being paid off by Big Pharma. Back in 2008 Clark Baker coined the term “Pharma-Slut” and in 2009 Baker wrote a lengthy post dedicated to explaining the term:

“Any individual or organization that directly OR indirectly; a) receives funding from pharmaceutical companies AND; b) uses medical or scientific diplomas, political influence, governmental or academic positions, to c) promote the marketing, sales, distribution or delivery of drugs to d) clinicians, physicians or patients.”

In the eight years since Mr. Baker started slinging that classy term around, he has accused many people, including myself, of being in the pocket of Big Pharma. The one thing Mr. Baker has never been able to produce, however, is proof to support this offensive claim. You can find many examples of Mr. Baker using the term Pharma Slut on his OMSJ website.  This post  provides one example that is so hyperbolic it defies reason:

“Seth Kalichman PhD received $17 million to blog for AIDS Inc.”

However, slinging unsupported ad-hominems about financial pay-offs against his perceived enemies is not Baker’s only strategy to deflect people from looking into his own finances. Mr. Baker also had this to say in defense of his fellow denialists:

“I must defend the good names of AIDS dissidents. We are not bad people, who in some sinister (if unspecified) way are profiting from the stands we have taken. This is the opposite of the truth. Believe me, there are no financial rewards for attacking the AIDS cash cow.” (emphasis mine)

And in the comment section of this article Baker uses a different strategy of deflection:

“Yes Mr. Jefferys, OMSJ’s 990 proves that OMSJ doesn’t accept pharmaceutical funding like Treatment Action Group – you got me there.”

And it has been a pretty good strategy, too. You can peruse OMSJ’s 990 Tax Returns for 2012 yourself. You will only find the very basic information. Nowhere does Baker disclose where his funds come from nor does he give specific breakdowns of how the money is spent. You will never see the name of OMSJ’s billionaire benefactor, Robert Leppo.  All of Baker’s tax forms are the antithesis of transparency. Of course that is precisely why Mr. Baker chose to make OMSJ a 501(c)3; This designation has the most relaxed regulations and requirements.

Unfortunately, Baker’s strategy has come to a tragic end. Because Mr. Baker is a coward who refuses to accept responsibility for his actions, he made the huge mistake of filing bankruptcy in his lawsuit with Dr. Murtagh. Now I have the Bank of America account statements for OMSJ as well as Clark Baker’s personal statements for June 2011 through June 2015. In those 4 years, Robert D. Leppo wire transferred $1,321,500.00 into the account of OMSJ. Other deposits of unknown origins in that same time period amount to $169,017.74, for a 4 year Grand Total of: $1,490,517.74 Because of on-going legal issues I will not link to the bank statements at this time. However, at the end of this post I have supplied the dates, amounts and mode of deposit for each transaction.

Robert D. Leppo has financially supported AIDS Denialist causes for many years. In 1999 Celia Farber wrote:

“The blitz was masterminded by Deane Collie, the executive director of the International Coalition for Medical Justice (ICMJ), and made possible by San Francisco venture capitalist Bob Leppo, who is emerging as a reluctant hero of the underground and who has contributed more than $1 million to the dissident cause.

It was Leppo who saved Duesberg from utter dissolution after the National Institutes of Health severed his federal funding as punishment for advancing a scientific hypothesis that differed from that of the establishment. Leppo’s funding enabled Duesberg to continue to function as a scientist and also gave a much-needed shot in the arm to both ICMJ and the Group for the Scientific Reappraisal of the HIV-AIDS Hypothesis.

I love Bob Leppo. In fact, in moments like this I even love capitalism. Leppo and Collie managed to meet with several members of Congress to discuss the HIV issue and plant seeds of discourse.”

In 2000 Robert Leppo purchased a building for AIDS Denialist break-off group, ACT UP San Francisco:

“Their radical pretense is undermined by the fact that conservative Republican venture capitalist, Robert Leppo, underworte the purchase of their building.”

In 2004 Robert Leppo funded the AIDS Denialist documentary The Other Side of AIDS:

“The executive producer of The Other Side of AIDS was Robert Leppo, a venture capitalist who has also funded the activities of well-known AIDS denialist Peter Duesberg.”

SNOUT reported that in 2006 Robert Leppo was actually on the RA Board of Directors via their minutes of June 11, supplied by Anthony Brink:

“Bob Leppo (the principal financier of RA) moved that RA board authorities authorize the RA foundation to make grants for a wider range of purposes, including films and video. Seconded by Charles Geschekter…

“Robert Giraldo moved that the RA foundation make grants for Brent Leung’s film based on available funds (Leppo’s money). Seconded by Christine Maggiore. Unanimous agreement…”

This background on Leppo is important for several reasons, most importantly because of his association with Clark Baker and Baker’s extensive history of criminal behavior as alleged in Dr. Murtagh’s lawsuit against Baker. These well substantiated allegations include, but are not limited to:

  • Making and maintaining defamatory websites about Dr. Murtagh.
  • Spoofing Dr. Murtagh’s email with fake accounts, including one purported to be me.
  • Pinging Dr. Murtagh’s cell phone.
  • Stalking Dr. Murtagh’s girlfriend in Atlanta.
  • Serving fraudulent subpoenas.

Clark Baker maintained a  pervasive and consistent attack against Dr. Murtagh in a successful attempt to get Dr. Murtagh fired from jobs and keep him from obtaining future employment. Baker filed bankruptcy because he was about to lose a $1.4 Million Dollar judgement to Dr. Murtagh for Baker’s 10 year sustained harassment of Dr. Murtagh. It would be a stretch of the most fervent imagination to believe that Robert Leppo had no knowledge of this sustained attack on Dr. Murtagh by a man to whom he was making monthly wire transfers that some months amounted to over one hundred thousand dollars! Not only should Robert Leppo have known how his money was being spent just due to the large amount of money he was donating, but also because of his extensive history of dealing with all sorts of other AIDS Denialists and AIDS Denialist causes and organizations.

As I have reported before, this bankruptcy by Mr. Baker is not legitimate. I always thought it was odd that Leppo would abandon his little puppet. Hell, the $1.4 million judgment due to Dr. Murtagh is nothing to Leppo; he has already forked over much, much more than that in his time funding the AIDS Denial machine. And now it seems that Leppo is secretly funding Baker again. Baker is no longer represented by the court appointed bankruptcy attorney: He now has a very high priced attorney named Baruch Cohen. I know that Baker can not afford such an attorney. The other financials Baker had to disclose to the bankruptcy court show that Baker has had no income since retiring from the LAPD and the retirement pension from the LAPD that Baker has previously described as “generous” is only $3,100.00 per month. That amount leads me to wonder if Baker was being deceptive out of embarrassment or if he meant that it was generous of the LAPD to give him any pension at all after his bad behavior as a cop.

Also, Baker’s Co-Habitation Agreement is dubious as well. Baker entered into this contract with the female millionaire whom he lives with, but will not marry, in 2008; the same time he formed OMSJ and 6 years after they began their relationship. In his profile at his now defunct blog Ex Liberal In Hollywood, Baker wrote that he entered into this agreement to legally protect his meal ticket significant other. Baker wrote that he learned this lesson when he was sued for Police Brutality and fired from the LAPD. (Baker regained his employment upon appeal.)

But the timing is incredibly suspicious; as I wrote above, this agreement came 6 years after the relationship began but very quickly after Baker formed OMSJ. It’s almost as if Baker planned all the alleged criminal behavior he engaged in via OMSJ from the start. Or perhaps Baker conspired with another person or people to whom he was beholden financially to engage in his bully-behavior.

Whatever the circumstances, it is obvious that a middle-aged man with no education, no significant accomplishments and no marketable skills would need to hitch his wagon to people with assets if he wanted a comfortable future.

The other leaders of the AIDS Denialist movement, Rethinking AIDS, are also culpable in this OMSJ scam. Celia Farber first laid the false ground work in February 2015:

OMSJ is under heavy heavy fire, meanwhile, from pharma-funded lawsuits and harassment.

They are trying to crush Clark. He can crush right back if he has the money. He needs lawyers to fight back against a barrage of bogus lawsuits.

By July all hands were on-deck perpetuating a rumor they knew to be completely false. The perpetuation of this lie lead to two separate money begs for OMSJ, although one was disguised as being for the defense of David Gutierrez.

Although both requests were unsuccessful, they still amounted to fraud because the requests were made with deception and withholding of information. Why would Clark Baker need money when he has his own, personal billionaire funding his bad behavior and paying for his attorneys? Not to mention the fact that the lawsuits Baker faced were being presented to the public in a less than truthful manner and had nothing to do with a coordinated attack by Big Pharma:

  1. The lawsuit against me was initiated by Baker himself.
  2. The lawsuit with Dr. Murtagh was about Baker’s alleged criminal activity and defamation against Dr. Murtagh and had nothing to do with HIV or Pharma.

Lastly, it is extremely hypocritical for Baker to have accused his enemies of being financially beholden to Big Pharma without one iota of proof, while Baker himself was completely on the dole doing a billionaires’ bidding. In future posts I will show how much of the money Baker received from Mr. Leppo was spent in dubious ways; limousines, airlines, fancy dinners and fancy hotels just to name a few. None of which is how a true 501(c)3 Charity should be spending money.

And for Baker to say that AIDS dissidents are not “profiting from the stands we have taken” and “there are no financial rewards for attacking the AIDS cash cow” was always dubious at best. Many denialists have profited from AIDS and Big Pharma including, but not limited to: David Rasnick, Matthias Rath, David Steele, Rodney Richards, Anthony Liversidge and Nancy Turner Banks, as well as Robert Leppo, himself. But now that I have hard proof of this as presented in this post, the argument that AIDS Dissidents are just well meaning people, fighting the good fight, is destroyed. You’re Welcome!
