As expected, when I issued counter notices to the Universal Medicine cult’s bogus copyright and trademark infringement notices and agreed to challenge them in court, the legal action was not forthcoming. The threat to suspend this and the FACTS blog has passed and all disputed images have been restored. But we’re not dropping it there. The cult’s aggression and our success at standing up to their bullying has made us more determined to expose their abuses, and tackle them head on, with some special attention for Universal Law solicitors Mullumbimby.
To reiterate, in the last little while, cult graphic designer and business partner to the Benhayons, Desperate Desiree Delaloye, along with Rod Harvey and cult lawyer Paula not on the payroll Fletcher claimed copyright infringement on a number of images from this and the FACTS site. Fletcher also took a punt at trademark infringement over the naming of these blogs. None of the claims had any legal basis, and were a clear attempt at trying to intimidate me and have my blogs closed. When challenged to prove their claims in a court of law they backed down, in spite of telling cult members that they were taking legal action against me.
For cult members who still have any mental faculties intact, I’ll spell it out. Universal Medicine has not taken legal action against me. Their copyright and trademark infringement claims were bogus. The cult knows who I am and where I live and work. If I have written lies on my blogs Universal Medicine is free to clear its name by suing me for defamation. They have the wealth to do so, but haven’t brought legal action against me. THINK for a moment, why not?
I’ve written damaging things on these blogs, and the reason the cult hasn’t attempted defamation action is because they know I can back everything I say. If they bring an action, I’ll bring the best defamation lawyer and a raft of subpoenas and Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine will sink – on the public record and with the cameras rolling.
Taking on the Esoteric goon squad
One of our regular readers contacted me today concerned because my twitter feed had gone down. They asked if the cult had done it. The answer is no. I didn’t have time to check on it, and it bounced back up again – some tech issue between twitter and WordPress, presumably.
However, our reader’s attitude indicates a common misapprehension of the Universal Medicine cult – that they are more powerful and widespread than they really are. As we’ve seen they don’t have the power to shut my blogs or my twitter feed. Rather, the cult has gotten lucky. Bullies they are, and it’s bullying that has seen them fly under the regulatory radar for this long. They’ve relied on none of their victims standing up to them, and until last year that tack worked. They’ve also been in luck because they’ve used regulatory dysfunction to their advantage, along with Google’s paranoia about being sued. It’s the U.S. right to free speech that allows me to criticize UM here on these blogs. WordPress upheld U.S. laws protecting the freedom to expose facts by allowing me the opportunity to challenge the cult’s claims in court. Google Australia allows cults to censor the internet and suspended my Blogger blog, and is censoring Google searches via a bunch of bogus cease and desist requests, without giving me any recourse to fight back in a court of law. Australia’s freedom of speech laws are an aberration.
But minus the cult’s opportunistic exploitation of a legal loophole, they are nothing but a bunch of numbskulled incompetents and try hard bullies who aren’t used to people standing up to them. Pervey Uncle Sergey and his squadron of airheaded arseholes have no special powers, just an exaggerated sense of entitlement, delusional obstinacy and zero scruples, and that’s what makes them dangerous.
Yet, a smattering of media coverage last year, the Rick Ross Forum, and three blogs has done the cult a lot of damage. We are still too few, and if we had more solidarity among those who’ve been damaged by these bastards, we could have brought them down by now. I would like to encourage the cult’s victims, we are stronger when united, and some of you could make official complaints that could have that toxic organization shut down and Benhayon jailed. For the sake of other victims, past, present and future, please make those complaints.
To all our allies, and some of you have no personal involvement with the cult, thanks for supporting us and please keep reading and commenting. We are ludicrously under resourced and we need whatever support you can give.
We are mobilizing to take legal action against Universal Medicine, and are receiving legal advice on several fronts.
- Class action to retrieve funds for bogus services, such as bogus therapies, EPA money for nothing fees and falsely ‘accredited’ healing courses
- Class action for victims of sexual or psychological abuse.
- Action against Universal Law’s, including vexatiously protracted family court proceedings, false accusations of abuse and vexatious use of AVOs.
One of our new team members has successfully fended off an AVO application and accusations of spousal abuse but has been fighting for two years for access visits to his small child at a cost now of $100,000. No surprise, Paula Fletcher is representing his ex.
We are collecting evidence of Paula Fletcher’s conflicts of interest. First of all, we have email evidence of Serge Benhayon encouraging cult members to leave their partners because their non cult member partner is ‘holding them back from their light’. The cult members are then represented by Universal Law. Paula Fletcher has proven she acts for Serge Benhayon with her copyright infringement claim on his ass ugly healing symbols. We have the letter, on letterhead.
We know portions of property settlements are donated to the cult and Paula Fletcher handles these and bequests. She has her name all over the ‘truth’ blogs – screen-shots taken thanks, and finally we have email evidence of her pressuring her clients against their wishes to take out AVOs against non abusive partners. We are gathering evidence that she is abusing Legal Aid funds to bring vexatious AVOs and deliberately protracted proceedings, and we are organizing to have Universal Law brought to account via due process.
If you were involved with egregious legal battles involving Universal Law, or served with a baseless AVO, and suspect it was at the cult or Universal Law’s instigation please use the CONTACT FORM.
In the meantime, I’m not going anywhere. Even if the cult succeeded in bullying us off WordPress, we were preparing to regroup and launch elsewhere in a secure zone where we can’t be suspended via false claims. In addition, I’m making sure the damning information I have on UM is lodged officially and widely disseminated, so that whatever dirty tricks they resort to next (a knock on my head perhaps, Serge?) the information stays on the internet – where it belongs.
