Open Call for a Lawyer

I’m putting out an open call for a lawyer who can help me sue over the Kate Ambrose incident at PS 39.  I have contacted numerous lawyers over the past 6 months, and although many of them have expressed their condolences to me over what I was forced to endure at PS 39, all of them have told me that my case does not lie within their scope of practice.

I am looking to sue for damages, including but not limited to defamation/slander, harassment, discrimination against a GLBT person, emotional distress suffered by my children, and extreme emotional distress suffered by myself, as well as monetary damages including legal fees, medical/psychiatric fees, and other expenses incurred as a result of her actions.

I have original documentation of:

  • Complaints that I made to the school administration at PS 39 in email form that Kate Ambrose, as well as other members of the staff at the school had harassed me
  • Complaint made to the Office of Equal Opportunity which is a third party that investigates complaints against the school district
  • Emails and statements from friends and acquaintances which discuss the situation
  • Bills showing psychiatric care undertaken and after a Kate Ambrose made a false statement was made about me under oath
  • Original unopened letters sent with derogatory names and insults sent to my address (ten-fifteen were saved from a large box of over 100)
  • Records from a talk therapist seen BEFORE the problems with Ambrose which show that my diagnosis was depression, and that I was in stable condition with no signs of psychosis
  • Proof that Kate Ambrose is no longer a licensed teacher in the state of New York.

Anyone who wishes to help me in this case is welcome to leave a private comment (all comments must be approved and your information will not be posted.)


New strange text msg

I received this text a few days ago. If you take a look at it, you can see that the phone number has an area code but An incomplete number. digits of the rest of the number. Also the text is completely composed of extra characters. 

As a privacy measure, I began using a Google voice number, and begin giving that number out to everyone instead of my real phone number. I had to change numbers and phones a few times, but it’s significantly reduced the instance of Bizzarre text messages, spoofed numbers, and crank calls. However, recently due to poor service in my area, I could not use Google Voice on a regular basis, and I begin using my regular number again. My carrier T-Mobile has told me that I can change my number for free at any time if I begin getting harassment calls again, but I feel like just using the Google Voice worked well enough. 

The saga continues.

Surprise! Google is less “evil” than competitors.

I’ve always been one to appreciate new technology, especially internet/information systems which allow people to easier access important news and ideas.  For quite a few years, Google has been touted as “evil” by the 99%, which ironically, is the same 99% that professes to be against the status quo out of one side of their mouth, while the other side of their mouth continues to kiss the blindingly white ass cheek of the misogynistic men who continue to abuse their power (and I mean a few individuals in particular here.)

What I have found over the months while I continue to blog in order to get the truth of my horrific situation out to the general public, is that bing and yahoo appear to have blocked my search results.  The reasons for this are unknown, since my blog complies with all public decency standards and I do not violate any laws with my postings.  In addition to having taught myself HTML by reading a few books and repeatedly consulting online cheatsheets, I also taught myself SEO basics by doing research and reading a few articles, as well as talking to a couple of experts in the field.

For most of internet history, other search engines have used Google like algorithms to rank search results. Most SEO experts agree that the following things will help your page reach the top of rankings:

  1. The proper terms in your domain name.  Example: if you search for dachshunds (a type of dog) should come up first before provided that the other ranking criteria is also met.
  2. Your page or blog should have accurate and descriptive meta-tags that tell spiders and bots what is on your page.
  3. Pages with more traffic come up first in the search results provided other criteria are also met.

A few other factors are involved in SEO optimization, but from my experience, these are the most important three, and are the three which make Google’s searches so much superior to competitors that 65.5% of all internet searches are done using it above other search engines.  Interestingly enough, if you search using Yahoo or Bing, my blogs and page results which show up on page 1 or 2 of Google search results DO NOT SHOW UP AT ALL.  Why would this be????

The reason is that my results were deliberately blocked, most likely after a hefty sum had been paid to Bing and competitors to block them.  After putting in all of that work directing domain names, changing and adding meta-tags, and actively driving traffic to my sites by encouraging shares and using social media – I DESERVE THAT TOP RANKING.  Google’s founding philosphy “don’t be evil” was recently changed, presumably because the word “evil” might have been too innocuous and prone to variable interpretations, however, employees and associates are still bound to “do the right thing, follow the law, and act honorably.”

It appears that in the realm of web searches, in addition to the realm of legal matters, the only way that the Cornfelds can win is to lie and to cheat.  After the complete shock of the complete lack of integrity on the part of the Cornfelds as well as associates, including legal counsel John Kornfeld Esq., it is good to know that the little guy (or girl) can still get the word out about abuse of power.  Google platforms, including Google plus, Blogger, and Youtube, allowed me to take control of the unflattering information that kept coming up when someone searched for my stage name, FOR FREE.  The magic word that sales people love — F – R – E – E.   It cost me zip, nada, zilch, nil, zero, and whatever your other favorite words are for NOTHING to put out all that information AND have it come to the top of the search pages.  All I had to do was a tiny bit of research.

My blog page was censored –

I posted a dumbed down version of the page, not knowing what got my page censored, since the information on my page was verifiable and not in violation of libel laws.

Playlist – Cornfeld Autocracy

Since I am no longer able to blog about anything of substance due to the gag order which I believe is a violation of my constitutional rights, I have created a playlist with songs for all the evildoers involved.  You can access it on Spotify


  1.  Million Dollar Loan – Death Cab for Cutie.  Although this song was written about Donald Trump, it very easily applies to Alex Cornfeld, whose father gave him a million dollar loan to invest in his first apartment building.  He was then micromanaged by his father, Arthur Cornfeld, until the time of our separation, and I’d imagine that he still is under the thumb of the big Kahuna.
  2. Big Time Operator – The Dead Milkmen.  You know the smooth operators, the shmoozers, not to mention the cocaine addicts, ketamine fiends, and compulsive gamblers, especially with the initials ABC.
  3. For the Love of Money – The O’Jays.  Dedicated to all the crooked people who will do anything to obtain ultimate power, including lie, cheat, steal, fabricate information, commit fraud and perjury, and do it all with a straight face while the public kisses your ass.  **Disclaimer:  As a libertarian, I don’t have a problem with people who make money, nor do I believe in redistribution of wealth.  What I DO have a problem with are those with money who use it for evil ends, including buying legal favors, hiring fake protesters and mobs to harass individuals, manipulating the system, and overall abusing their positions of privilege.
  4. Money Aint A Thang – Jay Z JD.  Dedicated to the 99% who like to complain about the excesses and the abuses of the wealthy, but who, when it really comes down to it, will do anything to breathe the used air and kiss the footprints of false heroes.  Also dedicated to those who feel that money doesn’t really matter.
  5. Sabotage – Beastie Boys.  (Also check out the cover by Group Love — they rocked it on Sirius Coachella Radio.) When some people can’t get their way using normal, just means, they get hundreds of goons and cronies to do their dirty work for them, upending the hand of justice.
  6. Let’s Lynch the Landlord – Dead Kennedy’s.  Dedicated to all abuse landlords, especially those with the initials ABC.
  7. Deter the Tyrant – Epica – hadn’t really listened to this song before including it, but I felt it was apropos.  Dedicated to all warlords, tyrants, autocrats, oligarchs, and others with absolute power who will not stop short to abuse that power when relationships become inconvenient for them.
  8. Rich Girl – Darryl Hall and John Oates.  Dedicated to adopted Cornfeld daughter Jessica, who never has held a real job in all of her existence, and by real job I mean anything that provides a sustainable income which one might use to pay their own apartment, school supplies and fees, clothing, five star dinner checks, and such.
  9. Dear Landlord – Bob Dylan – Dedicated to all abusive landlords everywhere, especially if they have the initials ABC.
  10. Back Stabbers – The O’Jays.  Dedicated to all fair weather friends and acquaintances of powerful people who are willing to lie, cheat, bend the truth, and stick their face right into the hairy ass cracks of these autocrats in order to please them.
  11. Do the Brown Nose – The Dead Milkmen.  See previous.  I’d like to (dis)honorably mention Kate Ambrose, Sherill Sigalow, Dr Richard Kaplan, and Brad Nacht here.
  12. Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap – AC/DC also Joan Jett.  Here’s one for Arthur’s goons who have been following me around but haven’t really done much of anything to help me other than pad their wallets.  I do believe there are those who have been hired for more sinister purposes on the Cornfeld payroll.
  13. A couple songs about liars – Liar Liar – The Used, and Unhappy Birthday by the Smiths.
  14. Sheep – Pink Floyd.  For those who simply believe what their friends tell them without bothering to double check the facts.  For those who need others to tell them what to think, how to dress, and who to vote for because they really have no opinion on their own.  For those who simply want to go home to their HGTV without thinking about those things.
  15. Blind, Dumb, and Deaf – Cocteau Twins.  Dedicated to all those NYC residents who are so completely numbed to the universe that they don’t notice harassment, vicious actions ala Kitty Genovese, especially Anne Cornfeld.
  16. Rise Above – Black Flag.   A favorite of my formerly good friend Floyd, who introduced me to that band and punk rock in general… I felt that this was a good anthem to live by for anyone who has endured the kind of despicable treatment that I have endured from small minded jealous individuals, pinheads, sheeple, and the all around ignorant.

For your listening pleasure… Enjoy!

Gag order issued RE: power mongering by Cornfelds

I’m sorry to divulge that a Judge Delores Thomas of the Brooklyn Superior Court signed an order which restricts quote “blogging on “social media” about the children.”  This order was pressed through by John Kornfeld ESQ, the crooked lawyer on the part of Alex Cornfeld.  No doubt, the safety all minor members of the Cornfeld klan are far from Cornfeld’s mind, however, he certainly wants to restrict information that makes him look like the dirty lying scum that he is, a ruthless autocrat who lusts after ultimate power and control, is incapable of any kind of compromise, and who has an ego the size of King Kong.  Here is a copy of the order.  I’d like to advise anyone who follows this issue to save screen shots of anything they find important on this blog, because no doubt if this order which violates my first amendment rights to freedom of speech can be put through, it is only a matter of time before the ruthless actions of the Cornfelds will lead to the restriction of all of my information.  Click the link to see a copy of the order  20170313130853 (dragged)

So, in order that I may abide by this court order, I will be starting a new blog which will be entirely dedicated to the deceitful, crooked, selfish, and blatantly dishonest behavior of Alex Cornfeld, which will have no mention of anyone else and which will be completely protected by my first ammendment right to free publication of all materials that fall within community standards.  Keep watching for further updates.

The Current State of Affairs

One of my morning rituals when I moved to New York City was to listen to WNYC.  I listened to public radio when I was in Los Angeles, and I enjoyed learning about local current events and the intellectual stimulation that diverse topics on most shows covered, but I noticed a trend listening to NPR.  There seemed to be an endless focus on “white privilege” and “underprivileged” groups. At first I didn’t think anything about it, but as time wore on, I really became irritated, not because I didn’t think that inherent racism and bigotry exists (after all, I have been the target of this myself, often from minority groups, which is quite ironic) but because of the sense of entitlement that seemed to be projected during these programs.

My own mother and grandmother were immigrants (technically, they were refugees) to this country during the 1960s who spoke entirely no English upon their arrival.  They left their home country with two large trunks full of clothing, and their first jobs when they arrived in the US were as maids and cooks at a resort in the Catskills, in upstate New York, where a relative lived.  They struggled to learn English and still maintain thick accents even today, after 40 years.  My mother later shared a two bedroom apartment in the Upper West Side of New York City with four other women in their 20s so that she could live in a lower crime neighborhood.  She put herself through college as an adult in her late 20s.

My father, although he was native born, came from a working class family of immigrants from the Balkans, and paid his way through college with student loans and also working as a bar back (while he was underage- which I guess you could get away with back in the early to mid 70s.)  After scrimping and pinching through his Engineering degree, he got a full time job offer in Los Angeles (which is where he eventually met my mom, and where I was born.) He used most of his life savings to buy a car to take himself out to the West Coast on the original Route 66, and had just enough left over to put a deposit and first month’s rent on an apartment.  He then told me that he ate “poor man’s hotdogs” which were 15 cents or so at the time, which apparently consisted of a bun, and as much relish, pickles, onions, and other condiments that you wanted to put on it, until he got his first paycheck.

Both of my parents grew up with an “old world” life mentality, and that is that struggle and hardship are inherent to existence.  They did not gripe or stress about small things.  They buckled their belts tighter, gritted their teeth, and moved forward.  Although technically I grew up in an affluent household, the beneficiary of a lifetime of careful fund management and strategic moves to nice neighborhoods where there were better schools, what I began to realize is that the struggles and hardships that I endured when I became financially independent and began paying my way through grad school at the tender age of 21, was that I expected these hardships, and that actually made it easier for me to deal with them.  As I began listening to radio show after radio show, I began to become exasperated when I realized that many of the things that I had to go through were far worse than some of the things that the guests on the shows were experiencing.  Through most of my 20s, I had no health insurance coverage, although because I was a good saver, I always had funds available when I needed to go to the walk in clinic.  I skipped out on buying expensive clothing so that I could pay for 250-300 dollar medical textbooks and equipment, although I always found money for food, there were definitely a few times towards the end of the month that I was stuck eating cheese and crackers, which was the only thing I had on hand.  In fact, in retrospect I realize now that one of the reasons that I was so thin is because I spent almost no money on food!

As I entered my 30s,  and as I benefitted from lots of experience with all kinds of different people, I realized that not all people were poor because of lack of opportunities.  I certainly met plenty of people in the adult industry who became “rich” fast and quickly and then rode the roller coaster down to rock bottom because they snorted and drank up most of their profits, or wasted them on frivolous things thinking that the money train would never end.  I’ve met plenty of college graduates whose parents paid their way through college, giving them generous allowances, who later crashed and burned due to addictive behaviors or had problems with impulse control and judgement, and later ended up doing the couch tour with anyone who would have them.  I also began to realize that not everyone prioritizes the same sorts of things, and that many of my fashionista friends of friends were sporting 300 dollar shades while sleeping on mattresses on the floor.  I also began to realize that while I was brought up on the old world ethos of self-sufficiency, hard work, and being prepared for difficult situations, that many of my peers enjoyed extended adolescence into their late 20s as their parents paid their bills and they took ski trips during winter breaks.  This trend has become more and more pronounced, partly because of the economic crisis, but also because of a militant strain of self entitlement held by many youth.

I think that there are quite a few misconceptions about “privilege” and discrimination, the first, and most important misconception being that only white people discriminate. The dirty little secret is that lots of groups hold xenophobic views, and these are often the same groups that we tend to see as “minorities.”  It is especially true if you are in any way connected to any kind of alternative lifestyle.  Angry mobs of all colors of the rainbow will attack like rabid dogs if you stray too much from the acceptable status quo of behaviors.

The second misconception about “privilege” is that privilege has to do with money.  This is often true, but what is more important than money is connections.  Those who have connections and are able to work the system are going to benefit more than those who simply have money.  A perfect example is the family court issue that I went through with my ex-partner, Alex Cornfeld.  Although technically he, and not I, was the member of the minority group, and although my father helped me to get an experienced lawyer and paid over 20k for my own expert psychiatric witness, the Cornfields lied, manipulated the system, blocked my witnesses, and I suspect, paid people off in order to get their evil way.  Luckily, because I spent a lifetime dealing with difficult situations, I developed the coping mechanisms to handle them, to roll with the punches, and to carry onward even amidst the worst of the nightmares that anyone can imagine.

As a child I remember the vestiges of a cold war during the Regan era, seeing the wall come down, the scourge of the aids crisis, and then the Iraq war during high school, and the worst of all, the tragedy of 9-11 during my college days, however, nothing has quite compared to the violent chaos and social unrest that I have seen in the past five to eight years, which has been fueled by idleness of the masses suffering from a lack of economic opportunity (a fact which is seriously downplayed by the media.) This is truly a difficult time to be alive, especially if you have not developed the right mindset.

While I no longer can bear to listen to NPR, I certainly believe that the ability to peacefully maintain an alternative point of view without fear of personal attacks in an important privilege of living in a free society, however, I can see that this right is slowly being infringed upon by angry anarchist mobs who are too cowardly to show their faces.
