When we reported on Craig “Sawman” Sawyer’s charity Vets4ChildRescue’s 2018 IRS Form 990, we gave him the benefit of the doubt that he really was going to release a documentary. Well, he’s come through. Contraland is finally available…on YouTube, not Netflix.
At the time of writing, the video has been out for 3 days and has 13,806 views and Veterans For Child Rescue’s YouTube channel has 724 subscribers.
We estimate V4CR has raised about $2 million so far around their mission to create this documentary, which must make it one of the most expensive YouTube videos ever made. It appears there is not a great relationship between NASCAR sponsorship and YouTube subs.
By contrast, the documentary Out of Shadows has been out for about a month and has received more than 12 million views just on their official channel.
The Out of Shadows movie has also been viciously attacked by LARPer Jason Goodman, who accused one of the producers, his former frequent guest Kevin Shipp, of buying fake subscriptions. Goodman has had Craig Sawyer on his show several times; will he now promote this movie, as a rival to Shipp’s?
Although I still have my doubts about Craig Sawyer, I commend him for doing the right thing and releasing his documentary for free. Let’s hope it has some positive benefit in stopping the scourge of child sex trafficking. So far they’ve only helped bust a few low-level pedos.
(h/t Cathy Fox for giving me the heads up on this release).
#Coronavirus be damned; the Well Traveled Fox is suing her former partners.
Thanks to Lestat, aka Cheshire3301, for bringing this to my attention:
Ever the victim, Defango claims that he was sued on his birthday (March 21). In fact the suit was filed March 16 2020.
Defango is only on the hook for $499.19. He has threatened to counter-sue for either $75,000 or $1 million; on what basis remains unclear at this time.
It seems Fox is trying to claw back some of the money awarded to Trevor in his lawsuit against Jesslyn Radack (who Defango publicly accused of leaking the “Seth Rich” DNC files to Wikileaks).
Defango’s threats against Beth and her family have been included:
We even get a mention! Posting Fox’s own comments, with redactions at her request, is supposedly “false, derogatory, or threatening” to her in some unspecified way.
It’s interesting to note that the Twitter account mentioned in a) refers to PaxNomad, which is one of Fox’s sock puppet accounts. So she is blaming herself for defaming herself – the height of legal confusion.
As this story unfolds, we will continue to provide you with the most accurate coverage available on the Internet.
Defango’s “birthday lawsuit” stream:
Videos referenced by Fox in the lawsuit:
Thomas Schoenberger (allegedly) has responded to this article on Twitter:
Did Fox initiate this lawsuit out of coronavirus quarantine-induced boredom?
The #LARPwars sure create some strange bedfellows:
Meanwhile Defango’s landlady “Cheri CBD” is accusing Fox of using this lawsuit to stalk Defango and harass her elderly father. She is about to “sick 2 attorneys onto her”:
Conspiracy theories abound:
Nothing new for Cheri. She also accused Thomas Schoenberger and Dave Acton of doxxing her father:
The police visit she is referring to happened 5 days after Isaac Kappy’s mysterious death. It was allegedly called in by Tanya Cornwell, wife of Defango’s former attorney Steven Biss. Defango claims it can’t have been her because the phone number given on the police report was different from the cellphone number he has for her.
Burners should be aware that all police on Playa are now mandated by law to wear body cameras. You might think you’re in the middle of nowhere having a transformational experience and being whoever you want to be – but you are being recorded.
Police are required at the festival for longer than just the 8 days the gates are open. This year there was a sexual assault during the city build, as well as someone reporting a sexual assault from the previous year.
