A line-by-line breakdown of Michael Rivero’s latest falsehoods…And Rivero’s cohort “DCDave” aka David Martin Defames Vince Foster’s Sister Again.
When murder conspiracy peddlers, ahem … alternative media Internet “journalists,” “experts,” talk radio hosts, and bloggers demand that they should have the same protections as journalists because they claim they bring the real news the mainstream press will not, shouldn’t they report real news?
Spreading deceitful information on the Internet, making false statements, lying by omission, distorting facts, and basing definitive murder conclusions on “predictions,” and “suggestions,” while harming families, is not real news.
It’s not journalism.
It’s not how decent people act either.
Rivero: Peschmann’s book was a clear attempt to reframe the Vincent Foster murder and bury it at a time when Hillary’s campaign has revived interest in the matter.
(16) FALSE: Rivero’s link does not go to a medical report that’s been “whited over!” either.
(17) Additionally, the VFMC Racket has been drawing definitive murder conclusions, in part, based on an anonymous caller tip which no responsible journalist or investigator would do. The point of tip lines is for law enforcement to follow up on the tips they receive. Tips are not always accurate. Come check out, others don’t. It’s called raw data.
Enjoy this short horror flick, “You Are Awake,” directed and photographed by Pedro Martin-Calero. If you are VFMC Racket alt-media “awake,” you might want to snap out of it.
–We pick up now with more of Rivero’s disturbing, serial fabrications–
Rivero: It is not defamatory to point out errors in a published work. One very alert reader write [sic] in to ask how many people planning to commit suicide go out for dinner first!
(18) Partial truth and then more fabrications. Pointing out errors in published work is not defamatory, but that’s not what occurred here or what I claimed either. Sigh. The truth protects people from defamation. As I’ve already shown that’s not applicable with Rivero’s VFMC Racket (see above, below, Part I and retraction demand).
Furthermore, unlike the VFMC Racket, I give credit where credit is due. The one accurate point that DCDave/David Martin did make was a bad URL out of 339 endnotes. Bad URL’s happen on the Internet, and are beyond my control, as I immediately acknowledged, like decent people do. They are not “factual inaccuracies.”
(19) FALSE: Rivero’s very alert reader has been intentionally deceived because that assertion is not in Following Orders, either.
It is worth pointing how Rivero habitually states on air, or in written form, that his listeners and readers are the smartest in the world and/or compliment them for being “awake,” “astute” and so forth.
Rivero encourages his audience to seek out “like minded” individuals on his show, and to be a part of a family like a cult. This is group-think, not journalism, and in my view, the antithesis of free speech.
I think Rivero does this to manipulate his listeners into feeling as if they are a part of an exclusive club. This also plays a role in why audiences blindly follow him and the VFMC Racket, and do not question their authority, assertions and conspiracies, no matter how preposterous and obviously false they are, when it is easy to impugn the veracity of their claims, as you are seeing here.
From there, the conspiracies are echo chambered on the worldwide Internet.
Moreover, group-think makes audiences easier to provoke and incite into action by tapping into their fears—(like having the fear of being murdered by politicians).
Rivero: But let us stipulate for a moment that Perschmann [sic] is correct, that Vince Foster really did kill himself, and the body moved by a panicked White House staff
[(20) and what else and who else? Here Rivero is cherry picking and taking Following Orders out of context too.
Unlike the VFMC Racket, I did not make a definitive conclusion. What part of “now we may know… in regards to the location” is not clear?
Proper journalism requires following where the evidence goes. Pandering to the choir, while it is the easier path to take–the more lucrative path, and in my view, the sell out, cowardly path, is not journalism either or honest.
Rivero:… that is still Obstruction of Justice, and that is an impeachable offence!
(22) Finally BINGO. Rivero’s “let us stipulate” is his admission of guilt that he has been willfully defaming me, others, and my book, to peddle his murder conspiracies, just like DCDave/ David Martin, did at the end of his fraudulent, deceitful Following Orders book review, where he admits his definitive Vince Foster murder claims are based on “suggestions,” and “predictions.”
This does not give anyone in the VFMC Racket a license or a free pass to fraudulently misrepresent books, attack and defame a litany of people, including Foster’s family, for years.
Rivero: That is still Obstruction of Justice, and that is an impeachable offence!”
(23) FALSE: Good grief. ”Obstruction of justice” is a criminal offence, not an “impeachable offence” in this situation. Bill and Hillary Clinton do not hold office and cannot be impeached. 1+1=2
That being said, obstruction of justice is obstruction of justice and actionable. Remember, the VFMC Racket claims that I work for the Clintons based on thin air and this makes sense, how? It doesn’t because it’s not true.
Rivero: “Impeachable offence!”
(24) While DCDave/David Martin insults my IQ and other people’s IQs based on his fabrications, “predictions,” “suggestions” and invisible bona fides as an IQ expert, in my view the right-wing alt-media’s VFMC Racket’s lack of knowledge regarding the U.S. system of government and legal system is not only disturbing, but injurious to their audiences.
I write that as a person who is not an American, does not vote in U.S. elections, and does not have a dog in the U.S. 2016 election race.

–End of latest round with VFMC Racket’s fabrications—
Finally. Let’s Wrap This Up.
Rivero’s ability to fabricate, like DCDave/David Martin, White-power-“BMAN,” and Turley, is disturbing. While I am not a doctor it appears to be chronic. I personally think it would have been better if the VFMC Racket ignored me, and other author’s reporting, and hoped that nobody noticed their false statements, twisting of facts and omissions.
As aforementioned, I’m not the first person who has had to debunk Rivero et el, but I do hope to be the last.
Update: White Power guy’s website, “BMAN’s REVOLT” has been removed.
Trouble in Lucrative Right-Wing Murder Conspiracy Paradise?
Indeed, it appears that the VFMC Racket is getting nervous that their murder conspiracy peddling days are coming to end. Why? Since the publication of Following Orders four years ago (2012), my findings of what may have happened to Foster and where have been independently confirmed, by Roger Stone and his co-author, separate from my findings.
While I cannot speak to what Stone does or says, it is noteworthy that he does not peddle debunked murder conspiracies, given there is a built-in-lucrative “Christian conservative” right-wing audience who believes debunked murder conspiracies.
Stone’s co-author had told me about the confirming information they had which includes, but is not limited to what came from a source when they sought my permission to cite some of my reporting from Following Orders in their book, Clintons War on Women.
Moreover, Stone, his co-author and I, are not echo-chambering cult-like robots who pander to bases either. Unlike the VFMC Racket, we can also agree to disagree on things, and we most definitely do not agree on everything either. I cannot confirm all their claims to be factual in their book. It’s their book, not mine.
For example, Stone is an active Donald Trump supporter. His co-author actively can’t stand Trump.
Me? I don’t vote in U.S. elections, I’m not American and I don’t back candidates. I see problems on both sides and go where the evidence leads, no matter who likes the outcome or not.
See how thinking for yourself works?
It’s worth noting that Stone’s confirming information regarding Foster’s untimely death, by suicide, is a dilemma for these right-wing alt-media men of valor, who need their audiences to believe fabrications about me and my book, to keep peddling their discredited murder conspiracies.
It is also worth pointing how the alt-media VFMC Racket has no problem attacking me, a woman, based on falsehoods, distortions or omission, but to my knowledge they don’t attack Stone.
What does that say about them and their integrity, honesty, character and credibility?
Since Following Orders was published, I have been contacted by several individuals who adamantly insist their murder theories were accurate, yet not one person has produced a shred of actionable evidence, anything at all frankly, to substantiate their big-talking claims. This has been ongoing, off and on, for the last four years. Had someone produced evidence that the Clintons murdered Foster, I would not have hesitated to update my book.
Now that you have seen how Michael Rivero and his VFMC Racket makes serial false statements, whether you choose to see the VFMC Racket, and their regurgitated echo-chambered falsehoods about Vince Foster’s tragic and untimely death (and new fabrications about me and others), for what they are, is up to you.

Hold on . . . Just when You Think the Right-Wing Alt-Media’s VFMC Racket Cannot Go Any Lower . . . Think Again
Chief Foster murder conspiracy peddler, DCDave/David Martin, continues unabated to attack and defame Foster’s family based on his “predictions,” and “suggestions” in another hit piece on his website, called, Sheila Anthony Defends Her Changed Foster Story. . This one he did not spread on BMAN’s Revolt, but on another “patriot” website called TreasureLiberty.com [update post has been removed from Treasure Liberty]. Sigh.
Now DCDave/David Martin has determined (just because he said so) that someone else wrote, Foster’s sister, Sheila Anthony’s Washington Post story: Vince Foster was my brother. Donald Trump should be ashamed, for her to “sign,” in response to the presumptive Republican nominee for President, Donald Trump’s response to a WAPO reporter regarding Foster’s tragic death being “fishy.”
It does not stop there. It is disturbing how it never does. DCDave/David Martin also claims that Sheila Anthony is lying about having given her brother names of psychiatrists, just because he said so. Look. In part:
“Please note carefully that in today’s article, Sheila (or whoever wrote it for her to sign) repeats the claim that she is the source of the list of psychiatrists, but she says that the note “was found in his wallet with his body…
We said that the whole story about this list of psychiatrists is probably bogus, and for substantiation of that claim we turn to my article, “Vince Foster’s Valuable Murder:”
“We said… is probably bogus?” Who on earth harms a family and accuses others of murder based upon “probably bogus.”
The Vince Foster Murder Conspiracy Racket, that’s who.
David Martin long ago abandoned any signs of reason, decency or compassion. What has Foster’s sister ever done to anyone in the VFMC Racket to cause or justify defamation, and the pain, devastation, harm and anguish they have intentionally inflicted, and continue to inflict on his family for all these years based upon David Martin’s random, unsubstantiated, conspiracy riddled thoughts?
I cannot fathom what it must be like to wake up being DCDave/David Martin and others in the VFMC Racket.
What can you say about him, or anyone else who knowingly, relentlessly peddles conspiracies, based upon “predictions,” “suggestions,” “probably bogus,” “stipulations,” fabrications, omissions and distortions injuring innocents and watch them suffer for years?
… And people believe the Clintons murdered Vince Foster based upon these original murder conspiracy peddlers, Michael Rivero, “DCDave” aka David Martin etc. “just because”? Wow.
Indeed reason has been abandoned. Here’s why. The Vince Foster murder conspiracy peddlers want to have it both ways–need to have it both ways.
On one hand they claim Bill and Hillary Clinton are highly skilled at having people killed. On the other hand, they need people to believe the Clintons masterminded and executed the worst planned and sloppiest murder in history.
Which is it? It cannot be both.
I sincerely hope Sheila Anthony files a defamation lawsuit to stop them once and for all from peddling falsehoods about her and her brother’s tragic and untimely death. It is clear they will not stop otherwise, and the harmful effects of fabrications and debunked conspiracies echo chambered as false facts on the Internet can no longer be ignored.

Update: On March 21, 2017, another easy to debunk Vince Foster fake news story began circulating the Internet.
Incredibly, some stranger contacted me by email and essentially demanded to know when I was going to update my book based on these latest appalling lies and easy to see fabrications.
Can people critically think anymore?
Tragically, the answer is no. Please see: Acting on False/Fake “News” Can Land You in Prison.
