Saddam Hussein and Billions of Dollars - The Action

It started in Santa Barbara in 1997. A tiny bit of back story is included.  It happened to me and I still had a hard time believing it.  But the time has come for some TRANSPARENCY.  Just imagine Saddam and Dick Cheney in a see through nighties and you have the idea.  

1982 – Green Hills Software, Inc., is founded in Glendale, California by Glenn Hightower, Carl Rosenberg and Dan O'Dowd.

1997 – Dan O'Dowd, having forced out Carl Rosenberg, sets his sights on Glenn Hightower, the successful entrepreneur who then owned three companies and had provided the capital to start Green Hills Software, Inc. Dan knew he could not raise enough capital to buy the company out at its real worth, 350 million. The best he can do is 47 million. So he cut a deal with his Senior Vice President, Craig Franklin, formerly an R & D guru who has taken to Advanced Products development and sales for the company.

The deal is a “Throw Mama From the Train,” exchange. Craig will make sure essential personnel refuse to cooperate with Glenn's due diligence team when Dan exercises the partnership's sudden death buy out option. Dan will ensure Craig's wife, who he is planning to divorce, does not get a shred of the stock granted to Craig the year before.

1998 – O'Dowd has a phony stock option agreement written. Immediately after Hightower signs the new stock option agreement he activates the sudden death option. Hightower goes forward with financing his payment to O'Dowd, anticipating no problems in finding the money.

Glenn is shocked that critical personnel will not cooperate with the buyout, instead threatening to walk out. He realizes he has been subjected to a conspiracy and files a law suit. But he lacks proof, which surfaced without his knowledge a short time later.

Dan is launched toward his life ambition, having more money than Bill Gates. Craig is also launched toward his ambition, engaging in incestuous sex with little girls.

Decision that unlawful action is not proved.

Throwing Melinda from the Train – The judge and counsel for the Franklin vs. Pillsbury-Foster divorce was the same as in the John Cleese Case several years later. Judge Thomas Anderle and attorney Jacqueline Misho. Local gossip in Santa Barbara is that Anderle and Misho have a S & M relationship. It is certainly true that Misho is said by fellow attorneys to be the least ethical attorney in the area. Her list of unethical practices includes the theft of documents and lying in court.

In 2010 Cleese will contact Melinda through his attorney before adding Misho to his After Divorce Tour.

Glenn should have talked to Melinda.

About Morgan – Morgan is the biological child of Melinda Pillsbury-Foster and her first husband, Richard Lee Barteaux, a psychopathic individual. All three children fathered by Barteaux, Morgan, and two by his second marriage, show signs of psychopathy.

Morgan, who Craig adopted along with her brothers and sisters in 1989, began accepting $5,000 a month to slander her mother from Craig in the summer of 1997. Then nearly thirty, Morgan had never managed to get a job and her attempt to break into the movies had fallen flat on its face. In August of 1998 she was dumped by her wealthy boy friend, Eugene Volokh, author of the Monica Lewinsky strategy for the NeoCons, in August of 1998.

Barely a month later Craig discovered her in bed with John Fund during a conference in New York. Fund is a long ago boy friend of her mother's. Morgan was in NY while traveling to New York, London, and Paris with Craig. At the time Melinda was in the hospital having two different surgeries, one a corneal transplant, which failed.

John Fund, on the Editorial Staff of the Wall Street Journal, is at the high point of his career and has been maneuvering to revenge himself on Melinda for years by seducing one of her daughters. But he was not the only one with an agenda. Morgan's was just as devious.

June 1999 -  Declaration by Doug Greene 
                       Declaration itemizes lies told to Doug by Morgan. 

1999 – Melinda's divorce finally ends. Divorce Judgment, August 16,1999.

Morgan Pillsbury – Franklin Transcript” The document is transcribed from a tape made by Morgan Pillsbury during a conversation with Craig Franklin in October 1999. Franklin was attending an Advocates for Self-Government conference in Atlanta Georgia. Morgan was in Jersey City, New Jersey. Hightower needed this information.

Fund loses out on a promised job as speechwriter for Bush because gossip about his liaison with Morgan became public. This was not because of the Tape but because Fund refused to accept calls and blocked emails from Melinda who was outraged he had lied to her about the relationship the previous March. A fax was sent to the central receiving point at the WSJ on October 27, 1999. Melinda was later told it was copied at least five times on its way to Fund's office. Melinda had insisted on proof from Morgan because Morgan was known by everyone in the family to be a chronic liar.

Fund had become pivotal to the NeoCon Cabal in the White House because he was assigned the job of ensuring their theft of elections remained unknown to the public.

Although fraud and conspiracy can be proven with the tape made by Morgan of a conversation between her and Craig in October 1999 (Transcript) Melinda is forced to settle the law suit she filed in Santa Barbara because the court decides fraud and conspiracy are fine when a divorce in involved and corporations can assist, in this case Green Hills Software, Inc. Perhaps Green Hills should have been named in the divorce.

Morgan gives a deposition for the case which is never certified.

March 2001 - Settlement Agreement
Melinda will later learn the settlement agreement is completely flawed and unenforceable according to an FBI legal forensics expert and others who examine it in detail. She is still owed the stock, interest and dividends, and damages which would be much more than the original stock.

She was forbidden by Green Hills attorneys to discuss the settlement agreement with her divorce attorney, Laura Dewey, who remembers her saying this. Todd Porter, the attorney she had retained on contingency, was paid the full amount he was offered from Green Hills though his agreement with Melinda was on contingency.

Morgan returns to NY. After the Blumenthal – Drudge suit is settled Fund starts calling her again. Morgan and John moved in together in July of 2001, as Connolly is writing the article, information supplied by Morgan.

September 4, 2001 - Sex, Lies, and the Tape – by John Connolly is published on Weasel Search, now hosted on American Political Journal. The full tape and transcript is available here.

Fund begins battering Morgan, who asks her Melinda for help. Melinda refuses to listen to Ayn who advises, “Let's let John solve the problem for us,” in referring to Morgan. To cover up what is happening Fund first tries to marry Morgan so he can have her institutionalized and then she leaves him because she is again battered.

Late 2001 Documents John Fund site put up by Melinda

Morgan moves to an apartment in Manhattan for which Melinda pays. John moves in with Morgan so he can force her to sign a statement saying he did not abuse her. He offers to pay her for this then forces her to sign by telling her his friends Cheney and Rove are helping him. He then drags her down to a notary public to sign a statement to this effect. He also forces her so write and sign a 'confession' to the Wall Street Journal.

He batters her again just as Melinda is arriving from the airport in mid February. Morgan files a complaint for domestic violence at Melinda's insistence but does not tell her about the involvement of Cheney and Rove. Melinda is present in the police station when the photos of her injuries are taken. Photos are noted on the police report.

The political manipulation of events through the police and District Attorney's office begins. The existence of photos is denied and rebutted. The police report goes up on American Politics Journal.

Melinda and Morgan ask everyone they can think of for help. One of these people is Sidney Blumenthal, who, Morgan says, had a keylogger put on her computer to steal information he wanted for his book. Morgan retaliates by putting a keylogger on Blumenthal's computer.

An attempt is made to kill Morgan and she goes into hiding with a family in Georgia. Over the summer of 2002 and into the winter Morgan is reading Blumenthal's correspondence.

She discovers Blumenthal and the Clintons are attempting to persuade Hussein to stay in Iraq. Morgan tells Melinda who, stupidly, does not understand this is actually being carried out for Bush and tells someone she knows in the CIA, Donald Steury, the husband of an old friend. Steury told Melinda he was the historian for the CIA, which he characterized as, “a frustrating job.”

Melinda also asked Dean Ahmad, an old friend and founder of the Minaret of Freedom, to check where the email originated. Dean says it was likely from the emirates or Baghdad. This was a mistake, she later realizes, one which opens up the floodgates of even more opulence for Dan O'Dowd via government contracts.

The chain of custody on the deposition was through US Mail received by Craig Franklin from the GHS attorney, handed to his then girl friend, Anne Fisher, to admire during dinner as he told her what was happening and what was in the envelope. The envelope was then mailed to the recipient, John Fund. They probably had decided mail was more secure and would not create a record. Wrong, thanks to Craig.

The juggernaut for war in Iraq continued to roll through the early months of 2003. The Clintons are not indicted.

Immediately Melinda and Morgan are hit by a barrage of media attacks appearing from sources known to be connected to Fund.

The site Melinda had put up to get their story out,, is taken down. John Fund puts up his own site, using the uncertified deposition Morgan gave for the Green Hills Settlement lawsuit the year before, received from GHS through the offices of Craig.

Melinda is also hit with an IRS lien which no one, not her bookkeeper, not the CPA firm who files her taxes, can explain either to themselves or to her. The IRS will not settle. The lien remains in place today on her cabin and her car.

Melinda's support ends and she is forced to leave Santa Barbara. Eventually Melinda will discover the 'expert' is a former investment broker who lost his license to practice in Alabama and relocated to Charlotte to engage in corporate raiding and other frauds.
She goes to North Carolina to work with Hughes, believing he will be able to help her with the non issuing of stock by Green Hills Software. T

he former broker, Robert Evan (Van) Hughes, was introduced to her by Jay Gell, who will soon impregnate and marry Morgan.

Jay Gell's sister is also an operative who worked on the Swift Boating of John Kerry. During this time Morgan emptied Melinda's remaining bank account leaving her destitute.

Morgan begins attacking Melinda and her brothers, Arthur and Justin. She accuses them of unnatural acts and abusive behavior, which has no basis in fact. Melinda is shocked and bewildered.

At the end of 2005 Melinda returns to California with her son, Arthur and they move into the cabin.

2006 – the law suit in NY against Fund ends because the judge is ordered to force a settlement. Melinda begins her first Radio Show on

Morgan and Jay begin attempts to get back into touch with Melinda so they can further drain her and also get more material with which to destroy her.

2008 – Melinda's handler, Van Hughes, is revealed to be a con-artist by another radio host who researched him. Hughes had also defrauded Justin. Hughes persuaded Justin and his girl friend to relocated and come to work for him. Justin is not only never paid he is bled for the cost of relocating Hugh's office from Charlotte to South Carolina. Hughes then threatens him, forcing him to move out. This is an exact parallel to what will happen to Melinda, the operation carried out by Raye Smith, in 2011 – 2015.

This will result in his contacting Craig to get support to return to college. Justin returned to Santa Barbara in early 2009.

2009 – Morgan and Jay begin positioning themselves to work for Craig in his ongoing campaign to destroy Melinda. This starts with expressions of love and apologies to Melinda. These continue until Melinda again trusts them enough to believe they want to help her, which takes some months and includes plying her with lies about her other children. The model is isolate, make the victim angry, and then egg them into behavior which impacts their other relationships.

2011 – Morgan and Jay have persuaded Melinda they are going to help her take care of the GHS problem. The entire plan is a lie with no possibility of working. Jay asserts he can sue them in North Carolina. Melinda becomes aware she has again been lied to in early 2011. She responds by cutting off relations with them and putting up a website about Green Hills Software.

Melinda has begun to understand the behavior she is seeing is psychopathic but does not yet accept Morgan is also a psychopath. The website, which is rapidly noticed by GHS employees who question Craig about it. Craig's reported response was that Melinda had a right to publish. Questions about libel drew a blank stare, by reports received from those who knew Craig and reported to their common acquaintances. This resulted in a covert scheme to destroy Melinda and take down the site. The first page of Greedville can still be viewed through the WayBackMachine. Greedville

July 2011 – Melinda is contacted by Rayelan Allan, AKA Raye A. Smith, who owns one of the websites where Melinda posts occasionally. Rayelan, Melinda later realizes, is a CIA asset now running RMN as a disinformation site. Her assignment is to move Melinda out of California and reduce her to homelessness in Ohio, where she knows no one.

Moving someone off their home turf makes them far more vulnerable to defamation, milking them for money, and destruction. Justin experienced this in 2008.

This campaign starts by asking her to host a radio show, involving her in the management of the RMN Radio shows, and then by getting her to put up a site, to be reimbursed later, for the Duke of Manchester, a good friend of Rayelan's. After Melinda has been working with Rayelan for a while Rayelan begins working on Melinda's fears for her son, Arthur, who would be left with no one if she died of her heart condition. Rayelan tells her she wants to become Arthur's Godmother while working to destroy her connections and persuade her to move to Ohio.

Rayelan uses Manchester as a tool for bleeding Melinda, knowing perfectly well Manchester will never pay her for the work she helped persuade Melinda to do.

By early September, 2011, Melinda was working as Director for Advertising. Soon afterward she was promised a partnership in a corporation, still to be started, called Rubicon Aegis, and persuaded with promises of multitudinous benefits if move to Ohio. Once there, these are slowly withdrawn as Melinda is asked to wait for money to become available and then to pay for the redesign of of RMN herself.

While on the way to Ohio Melinda was subjected to continuous traumatic attacks via the Internet by the Manchesters, who have been hosted in Santa Barbara by Craig at the Biltmore Hotel on the beach in Montecito. By the report of the Manchesters Craig also took them up to Melinda's cabin. Melinda believes they could have broken in at that time.

Craig and the Manchesters and possibly also Rayelan, have managed to have Yola take down her websites hosted there which included the Greedville site and also Melinda's paying sites.

Melinda was forced to spend hours every day responding to the attacks. The rest of her time was spent doing jobs for Rayelan which bore no relationship to the work she was supposed to be paid to do. Rayelan never follows through with her promises, spending her time shopping and eating, paying little attention to the ongoing onslaught except to provide copies, at Melinda's insistence, of the calls being left on her answering machine from the Manchesters, for whom she had vouched as honest, honorable people. Retrospectively, Melinda sees this was a set up.

Rayelan even prompted Manchester when she picked up while he was leaving a recording in at least one instance.

In August of 2013 Rayelan begins the shock and awe campaign, intended to evict Melinda from her corporate housing in Rayelan's house and make her and her son homeless. This does not work as planned for Rayelan who in a burst of candor complains to Melinda saying, “I told them it wouldn't work, I told them it was a mistake to have you come out here.” Them is Dan O'Dowd, Craig and the employees working on finally throwing Melinda off the Train.

It's all About the Money

    Imagine! She has forgotten to pay the server bills to ValueTech in Florida for 4 months! Who's to blame now?
    ValueTech LLC? Interesting detail, she had cut the costs for the back-up service. Bell ringing? Is this the real reason why the older RMN archives have been gone? Did she lose her archives because she cut her payments?

    I remembered several days ago that I had forgotten to pay for the server... Or had I paid it?
    I pondered this while I was drifting off to sleep...and in the morning I did not follow up on it because circumstances here took over and pulled me into a different arena.
    I am going to need $396.00 as soon as possible or RMN gets shut off. I have $90.00 in my Paypal account, but I am -$400.68 overdrawn in my bank account.
    Sadly, one of my donors called to say that she received an email from Melinda accusing me of misusing RMN money. I am sure many other donors received the same email. Of course Melinda didn't bother to mention that she has been running up my electricity and water bill. The excess I have paid for electricity and water because of her could have paid the server many times over.
    Please understand the dire need for the money. If you would rather pay it directly to ValueTech here is their website and their telephone.

    Thank you so much for understanding that these are very difficult times for me. I am moving myself because I have no money to hire people right now... and I am being harassed by a hedonistic psychopath who has occupied my second floor where all the bedrooms for the house are located. I sleep in the small butler's pantry off the dining room.


    Well, let's ask Jessie J about the never ending money issue.
