New Film -Summer 2016

I have long alleged that I am being followed, most likely by Arthur and Alex Cornfeld’s private investigators, however, other than a few emails sent back and forth to the agency Arthur hired, a business card given to me by one of the PIs who followed me with my knowledge for a few weeks, and Arthur’s admission over the phone as witnessed by my father that in fact, I WAS being followed, I wasn’t able to get any film of it — until this summer.

The following clip was taken on a sad day when my VW Passat, which functioned better than any hired “protection” that money could buy, finally broke down once and for all one evening.  There was a fast leak in the coolant/radiator system, and I had to stop every ten miles or so to fill up with water just so I could get it home, where I left it parked until I sold it as a salvage.  Luckily, I had enough money in savings to cover the emergency and buy a new vehicle.  As I was waiting for my engine to cool down so I could unscrew the cap to the coolant reservoir, a car pulled up behind me (not close, but quite a distance away, at least 25-30 feet) and put on the flashers.  For a second I wondered if it was a good Samaritan, but I had no such luck.  The driver stayed in the car and appeared to be watching me as I waited for roughly five minutes waiting for the engine to cool, and continued to wait as I filled up the car with water (coolant would have been a complete waste given how fast the fluid was leaking out.)  The footage was taken after I had already closed the hood and gotten into the car.

I showed this to my father and he admitted that it was “strange.”  The only conclusion that I can reach is that this is hired covert surveillance that is keeping tabs on me.  Watch and decide for yourself what you think the intention of this person in the car might be.

 

Also, on an unrelated note, my blogs have been illegally supressed by Bing and Yahoo.  According to their terms, they can supress blogs that cause “harm to children” and violate “legal codes.”  My blog has not done any of these and yet all of my results do not come up at all in Bing or Yahoo.  There is even a message that claims that some of the results have been “removed.”  This is an illegal violation of my rights to free speech and expression.

“Fit” Parenting (as Defined by Income)

It had come to my attention six months ago that the last time my children had been to the dentist was about two years ago, when they were under my care.  My daughter, who is now nine years old, has already had her adult teeth for several years, and it was very disconcerting to know that they had not been getting proper dental care.  To be honest, however, I was not really surprised.  Most of the planning for the children’s health and well being had come under my auspices when they were in my custody, and I was the one to make their first dental appointments when my daughter had her first adult tooth come in.  Combined with the fact that my children had shown up numerous times improperly dressed during the winter, in only short sleeves and no layers, oftentimes without mittens, I remembered how when I first met Alex I wondered if he was borderline autistic.

Aside from being overly analytical and overly concerned with objects, he does not laugh often, never sings or whistles, and the small social niceties of life such as having the children call my grandmother or my dad (or even sending a card) on their birthday or holidays seem to escape him.  He is oftentimes unable to demonstrate empathy, and has a hard time understanding how other people feel.  After two years of couples therapy with no progress, I began to understand that he was simply lacking in the most basic types of social intelligence.

After months of commenting to my visitation supervisor about the lack of dental care, and then taking my children to a local drugstore during one of the visits to buy children’s teeth floss, at long last, they were taken to the dentist.  All of this begs the question: with the vast amounts of resources available to the Cornfelds, and the full time childcare that they have available, including nannies who take the children to all kinds of appointments, why were they not taken to the dentist sooner?  Why did it never cross their father’s mind, after almost two and a half years under his care, that his children might need to have their teeth checked?  I would be very VERY surprised if I had heard that Alex had not been to the dentist lately.  He wants for nothing, and wears ten thousand dollar suits and six hundred dollar pairs of shoes, and YET my daughter shows up in sweat pants and sweatshirts EVERY WEEK and my son has shown up without his glasses for the past two months.

I sincerely worry about the state of the country, the corruption inherent in the “justice” system and the  child “wellfare” professionals who are supposed to act in the best interest of the children, who should not be swayed by bribes, coercion, slanderous statements, or crony politics.  The Cornfelds managed to take this case immediately to Supreme court without any prior litigation, served me papers only two days before the appearance (which I found out later is illegal,) and then the judge voted in favor of a motion to block my own forensic psychologist, Dr NG Berrill, who is highly respected in his field of work, and who submitted a report stating that I had “no psychosis of any kind” according to a test administered, and that I posed “no physical threat to my children or myself,” according to his further examinations.  Because psychiatric diagnoses are highly subjective, it is ALMOST UNHEARD OF for second witnesses such as this to be blocked in court.   The witnesses were blocked due to an allegation from legal representatives on the part of the Cornfelds which claimed based on one single phrase in the report that Berrill was uncertain about his diagnosis.

What I have come to realize is that many of these social signs Alex exhibits, mainly, lack of empathy, are also the trademark signs of anti-social personality disorder, defined by the DSM 5 defines as behaviors which violate various laws, such as lying for personal gain, forgery, bribery, and general deceit and manipulation of others, as well as impulsive behavior, such as heavy drinking, cocaine use, and compulsive gambling (as opposed to occasional, recreational gambling.  Those with anti-social personality disorder (or in lay language, a “socio-path”)  blatantly disregard the health, well being, and emotional needs of those around them.  Some socio paths engage in violent and aggressive behaviors, but others, like Bernie Madoff, commit white collar crimes because they crave the ego stroking that having lots of money and adoration affords them.  Lastly, and most importantly, they exhibit no remorse for the results that their behavior has on those around them, including their kids, family, and people close to them.

The lay public often confuses the term “anti-social behavior” with introverted behavior, or even social avoidance behavior.  These things are not related to the clinical definition of “anti-social behavior.”  In fact, socio-paths can often be quite charismatic, charming, and loved by others, and this is exactly the way in which they are able to manipulate them into doing their dirty work.

I am worried about both of my children, who are exceptionally bright, but especially my daughter, who has a genius IQ as confirmed by a director of Mensa, who received her full psych report conducted by the school.  The psychologist at the school refused to sign off on her report, telling me that the school district could not send reports meant for internal use to an outside organization, and the director at Mensa confirmed that other parents in New York City reported similar problems.  My daugher, like myself, is highly sensitive, introverted, and especially needs the emotional interaction that she has been robbed of since my absence.  She has become more and more quiet and withdrawn since the separation, and since I am not allowed phone calls (even on holidays such as Christmas and birthdays)  it is very difficult to ascertain exactly what the problem might be at the Cornfeld household.

 

What to do if you are (really) being followed.

It’s not always clear if you are actually being followed.  In my case, I was being followed by private investigators for over one year without my permission, and I do believe that I am still being followed by Arthur’s henchmen now and then.  Here is a good article I ran across about various methods you can use to 1)determine if you are actually being followed and 2)loose the followers.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2010/12/bill-rounds/are-you-being-followed/

I have found that for me, the absolute BEST way to figure out if a person or group was following me was to stop suddenly in my tracks.  Often times, the person or individuals would then stop also, usually very awkwardly, waiting for me to do something.  Sometimes, the less sophisticated among them would also point in my direction or keep looking furtively back and forth to see what I was doing.  I then would turn on my phone and begin filming them, which usually made them frightened enough of exposure to stop following me.

If being followed by car, as in the brighting incident in my youtube film from a previous post with a vehicle flashing it’s lights behind me (which used to happen frequently) slow down, and allow them to pass.  They will usually slow down as well, waiting for you to speed up again, but when you don’t, eventually they will pass.  At that time you can flash your lights a few times as well.  I don’t get followed with brights anymore, because I always reverse bright, and no one likes that.

I have also taken a moment to comprise a chart of the difference between what psychologists call “non-bizarre delusions,” that is, things that could physically happen in real life but which are NOT really happening to a given individual, and actual harassment.  Much of the art of psychiatric diagnosis is still highly subjective, and even tests like the MMPI are not entirely free from confounds.  For instance, if an individual REALLY IS being followed, the test may give a false positive for paranoia because it only takes into account an individual’s answers on the test, and not actual life circumstances.

Delusional Harassed
Repeatedly claim events are happening (usually over years) but has no physical proof  EXAMPLE – Jean’s spouse has tried to poison her over 100 times but has not succeeded, she’s not physically ill, and has no evidence of tampering. Claim ongoing repetitious events, but can provide video, audio, eyewitness accounts, and other forms of physical proof of harassment
Harrassed in any neighborhood, at all times, and harassment seems to follow them to any and all locations EXAMPLE – No matter where Jeffrey goes he is followed by the CIA. Harassment is situational, occurs in only certain places, and individual can find respite from harassment in various ways
Individual generally has no known enemies and no factors that would provide incentive for someone to harass them Individual has one or more enemies or others who would benefit financially, socially, or otherwise from having them harmed or seen as mentally incompetent
Mood and behavior is usually the same over a lifetime, or if it does change, the change is usually gradual Mood and behavior changes markedly upon onset of harassment due to stress, depression, and other psychiatric issues caused by harassment

The above chart is a general guide.  Every individual is different and it often takes a very skilled and experienced practitioner to arrive upon the correct diagnosis, especially in the case of a person who is experiencing “non-bizarre” delusions.  Another complication in differentiating between a harassed and delusional person is that the harassed person will also become hyper vigilant or primed to expect harassment and may see events which are coincidental as part of the harassment.  A good mental health professional also takes into account how functional, independent, and otherwise healthy their patient is to determine the proper course of treatment.

My mail has been coming in opened

I have moved up to a nice quiet neighborhood in Westchester County, NY, just north of the Bronx, and I have been working hard painting, moving furniture, and generally getting the place into good shape, and I needed to order a few large items for the new place, including a dehumidifier.  I noticed that the dehumidifier was delivered with the box open (the bottom had been completely cut out so that you could slide the top off the box.)  I didn’t think much of this, but then when other mail started to come in open, I became suspicious.  The last thing that came in open was a small box sent to me by a friend who visited for a week, and had borrowed my keys and forgotten to return them to me before she left.  The box that she sent the keys in was open, as well as the envelope inside the box.  Now I’m wondering whether or not I should change my locks again, which is simple enough; I did it myself the first time, just by going to the hardware store and buying a new set of knobs for about 40.00.

Still, given everything that has been going on, it’s very unsettling knowing that someone might have the keys to my house.  What’s interesting is that my grandmother happened to be visiting and was outside when the postal worker came, and that the mail was ALREADY open at that time, eliminating the possibility that one of my neighbors or some passerby might have come by and opened it looking for valuables.

Repeated Black Balling and Blocking of Critical Information

I would have never imagined that in this country, such mis-carriages of justice might be allowed as have occurred in this case.  Even asides from repeated snubs from Brad Nacht, the lawyer “for the children” appointed to the case, various things have occurred which have led me to believe that my rights to fair representation and a full presentation of my case are being interfered with.  For one thing, although I was assigned an “independent” forensic evaluator by the court, it is very apparent, given hard evidence that I am willing to provide, that there were numerous lies and falsehoods represented as truth by various individuals, including Nikki Gontmakher and Sherill Sigalow, who told an outright lie about the reason for termination of her services (they were terminated by myself, as shown by two emails from me to her explaining the reasons why I fired her.)  Information given to the evaluator by my own personal references was distorted or completely ommitted.

While I did hire a forensic evaluator who was able to examine my audio tapes and find that indeed, there were hissing sounds on the audio and that I have an second psych evaluation which found that

testing with the MCMI-III reflect that … tests results do not reveal that Ms Sepich is suffering from a psychosis of any sort.

the Cornfelds have filed a motion to block the testimony of both of my expert witnesses in court.  In fact, my lawyer has told me that Brad Nacht accused my forensic evaluator, Dr NG Berrill, of being a “hired gun.”  The Cornfelds are not concerned about my mental health and well being, as evidenced by the fact that they have completely cut off contact with me, presumably at a time when I was most in need of emotional support, and I have had no contact of any kinds with any of the Cornfelds with the exception of routine text messages once a month to Alex Cornfeld to coordinate support payments.  What I am most in shock over is the ease with which the Cornfelds were able to lie, manipulate, cheat, and abuse their power and influence.

The Borderline King – Male Personality Disorders

I find it interesting that there is so much emphasis on the female personality disorders, and in fact, this section I’m about to quote is almost an after thought from the book “Understanding the Borderline Mother” By Christine Ann Lawson.  When male personality disorders do happen, they tend to be more pronounced, and associated with more anti-social behavior.  Although I did several google searches, there isn’t very much info about male borderlines except for the most self destructive types.  Here are some excerpts from Chapter 8  about the borderline “king.”

The king has a heightened sense of self importance, and feels entitled to special treatment. He embellishes his accomplishments and may blatantly lie in order to be perceived as superior to others… Katie had many embarrassing memories of her father’s behavior in restaurants and airports when service did not meet his expectations.  He could be ruthless, demanding, and intimidating.  If service was slow, he expected a discount.  He complained to manages, demanded, refunds, and threatened lawsuits over the slightest inconvenience, announcing, “I run a $10 million industry and if I ran my company anything like this we’d go bankrupt!”

This was a spot on description of Alex Cornfeld’s behavior.  Everything from the giant “Alex – The man who knows” wall sized artwork in the Brooklyn bowl, to his incessant need to have others act ingratiatingly towards him, I believe it was exceptionally difficult to find someone who would not feed his narcissism, but rather, called him out on it.  I recall a time when we went out to a very hot sushi place in Studio City called Asanebo, which at that time served omakase only.  We sat at the bar and were served some of the freshest fish I had ever tasted, on warm rice, which was unusual.  His response to the sushi chef was “this was good, but not quite so good as that first time I came.”  I found this kind of funny and I later called him out on it, letting him know that I thought that was kind of an ass-hole thing to say, but he became defensive.

I recall one other time when we stayed at the Crown Plaza in Irvine for one of Alex’s squash tournaments.  The room was fine, clean, and I slept very agreeably in the bed that night, however, the next morning, he went down to the front desk and complained that he had not been able to sleep all night due to a “noise” in the room.  I was in complete shock, but I didn’t say anything, given that I am generally a sound sleeper when I’m not under stress, it was possible that I had not hear the noise.  He demanded that the front desk clerk go up to the room, and he held up one finger and demanded, “listen.”  I strained my ears for a few moments, but I didn’t hear anything except for the very soft, barely perceptible hum of the central a/c.  I looked at the clerk for a second, trying to keep a straight face, but he seemed very intimidated, and said, ok, yes, we’ll comp you the room for the evening.  I would have broken down laughing except that I was in complete shock that this could have even happened.  This over sensitivity, combined with numerous annoying tics, i.e. repeated tracing of his lips with his finger, toe picking while reclined, and inappropriately and obsessively touching his penis, albeit in a non-sexual way, in front of elderly relatives, was just another symptom of his neurosis.

The king’s grandiosity is an attempt to compensate for his fear of dependency.  The king strives to be perceived as the ultimate provider … and when others are unappreciative, he either withdraws or explodes with rage.

Here again, a picture perfect description of Alex Cornfeld.  He likes to brag about how many millions he makes, but of course, he never mentions the fact that his father put up the first million for his investment, and then later was  the majority investor in all his subsequent ventures.  The fact that Alex never truly had to struggle for anything in his life was one of the things that I most reviled about him.  If he had had a bit more graciousness and acknowledgement of his privilege, I would have found it much easier to get along with him.  I found his inability to compromise and his difficulty seeing past his own narcissism to appreciate others completely intolerable.

Despite the king’s grandiosity, his self esteem is fragile, thus, he requires continuous attention and admiration in order to feel valued … and [he is] preoccupied with his appearance, his possessions, and how well his business is doing.

Although Alex likes to put on a grandiose face, the truth of it is that he at various times expressed deep insecurities about his attractiveness to me, and even his penis size.  He asked me so many times when we first met if I really thought that he was attractive that I finally decided to stop being diplomatic and I yelled at him “you’re not as bad as you think,” which seemed to finally, at long last satisfy him, to my befuddlement.  He almost seemed to enjoy the backhanded compliment, and I did notice that he seemed to enjoy repeatedly provoking me into an angry response… almost to the point where it was a sexual turn on for him.

I find it interesting in our society that the qualities of narcissism, self-aggrandizing behavior, trash talking, and belittlement of others are ok in several situations 1) if you are male  2) if you have a lot of money, but even then mostly if you are male.  The same qualities present in a female which are considered golden in a male are reviled, attacked, and scorned, especially by women, which is most ironic of all.

 

Updates 12/15/2015

Not surprisingly, The Cornfelds have used all tactics to stall and delay court proceedings, and in some cases literally have no respect for court proceedings.  At the last proceeding, when I was about to petition for Thanksgiving visitation with my children, I was informed by my lawyer that the Cornfelds had already made travel plans for the week, even though they KNEW that we were appearing in part to determine if I would be able to see my children over the holiday.  My lawyer was absolutely aghast that they would have this much contempt for court orders that they would dare to show such disregard.    I do periodic searches on and I did find an interesting blog post here

http://cornfeldtenants.blogspot.com/2015/03/arthur-cornfeld-aka-abc-properties-work.html

which pertains to Cornfeld scofflaw tendencies.  On a related note, I also have posted an updated list to unedited films in my dropbox, but these are all available on my youtube channel

I had another flat tire on my real passenger side wheel the other day, which I replaced with a high quality tire.  Further updates will be posted as they happen.

New film depicting a “brighting” incident recently

https://www.youtube.com/embed/fo38BLTc12g

Also – I re-edited the audio clip with the hissing.  It has come to my attention that certain people couldn’t hear the hissing at all over the background noise, but once I put visual cues in, almost everyone can hear it.  It’s available on vimeo here (make sure to turn up the sound!)

It should be noted that I filed a complaint against Kate Ambrose of PS39 for hiss talking and hissing at me during a visit to her classroom.  Nothing was done regarding my complaints, and said Ambrose later filed a complaint after committing the bad behavior alleging that she believed I was mentally ill.  She committed an act of perjury, which is a felony in every state, which when properly prosecuted results in a minimum of one year prison time.
