Just A Chip Off The Old Block

















No one who has attempted to publish the Bible in a new way has been free from serious, life threatening, persecution.  We are blessed to have thousands, even millions, of friends, throughout the world, many of whom have been praying for us. Groups of thousands of intercessors have convened at different times over the past four years and asked God to intervene on our behalf, to foil and expose all wickedness, and pray for those who have so spitefully used and abused us.


It was Mr. Hall that directed Nova Spivack to use my investment for other than what it was agreed upon, we have the e-mails. It was Mr. Hall that boasted in his deposition that you have never said ‘no’ to him.


Mr. Hall and Mr. Levinsohn, you make Nova Spivack seem positively angelic compared to you both.

Mr. Levinsohn, if you are going to play politics, you’re never going to win playing with third string players, you knew that, right?

It’s because I’m a woman, isn’t it? It’s an automatic reflex to put women in their ‘place’.  And that I was born into such an enviable position?  I’m a chip off the old block fellas.





update 2: The Classic Shell Game As Illustrated by Vulcan Capital- ABOVE THE LAW?









So, is the message I am getting, that what an idiot I am to think the law is protection for the more vulnerable among us who are so often taken advantage of? That judges are to halt the unscrupulous is a fairy tale that everyone knows doesn’t happen? That you have to cheat and bully and lie to to make your way in this world, that you must be callous and disregarding of anyone’s rights or interests except your own? Is that the message these men are sending to others? I get only anonymous comments on the blog: people are scared of these guys.

I feel like I’m drilling through a concrete of corruption I had no idea was so wide and deep; apparently I still haven’t come to the end of it. Continuing these machinations only provides even more evidence of how they consider themselves above the law, and a law unto themselves, answerable to no one.





what a tangled web

~Do you think I cannot now appeal to my Father, and He will at once send me more than twelve legions of angels? Matt. 26:53

Last week we were offered a settlement by Evri, the company which absorbed Radar Networks, apart from the other defendants. As soon as the other defendants heard of the offer made apart from them, as the largest investors, they shut down the Evri Company. This happened last Friday.

Vulcan Capital is the main investor of Evri, and has to date invested more than $65,000,000 in Evri.

Yesterday we indicated we were inclined to let the powers that be call the shots to get this over with. It seems in response to this, we received an offer from the other defendants- this morning- the exact same offer and amount as came from the Evri Company last week, and the reason for which they shut the Evri Company down.. A fraction of the amount stolen and destroyed.

Also, the powers that be, have other powers that be, over them. It goes very high up, or, very low down, depending on your perspective.

When Radar Networks collapsed, Nova Spivack publicly blamed myself and Worddiamonds for its failure. Of the e-mails turned over in discovery, we found he said things to others about me personally that I have never heard being said about another human being, until I found it in the Bible being said about Christ. (?!)

The question for Nova, who always said he needed more money, no matter how much had been invested, is, where did all the money go? My theory is that its somewhere in Indonesia being used to build a resort.

Mr. Spivack directed his underlings to erase all his computer records immediately. We never received an accounting for our investment until 2 years after Radar was ‘sold’ to ‘Evri’.

Mr. Spivack still remains answerable, because money has disappeared, lies have been told;  it is a tangled web indeed, by those who would deceive. Certainly all blame can be laid at Mr. Spivack’s feet, had not the others involved in this fraud behaved even more badly, with more deliberate cruelty and ‘malice with oppression’ as it’s called legally.

As the lead investor for Radar (and Evri), for Mr. Hall to assure me he would help with any advice concerning my investment in Radar, the very same day he had fraudulently converted my investment in Radar into equity,  which he then shut down [Radar] and absorbed into Evri, another company Vulcan was the lead investor in under his direction, is to illustrate the kind of shell game, pure and simple, that continues to this day.

Peter Rip, a fellow investor, behaved so honorably, and with kindness and compassion, I will never forget his reaching out and connecting me with those who steadied me during this horrendous experience. His death certainly leaves a void in the community. Are there any others like him left? Men of their word, gentlemen, with some kind of ethical standards?

Will no one else step forward and stop this sham? Others know some of what has been going on, but only have a limited view. Justice doesn’t seem to be a priority in this neck of the woods. Is it no longer the United States of America in Silicon Valley? Do our nations laws, and principals, have no bearing?

There is going to be an Edward R. Murrow that will one day cry out, ‘Have you no decency sir, at long last?’ Because I’m not the only one this is happening to, or, has had this happen to them, by these same players.

Today is the day of salvation. Confess. Let this end peaceably.

‘Substantial’- Thank you for this opportunity to illustrate, with one new painting a day, what ‘substantial’ means to me…

Quoting Richard Oldenburg, of the Museum of Modern Art in New York,

 in the catalogue of my Dad, William S. Paley’s, collection of paintings, about working with Dad.

“His advice was always an implicit reminder that institutions, like individuals, must have a strict sense of honor.




 Mr. Allen, ‘substantial’ would be the value of my Dad’s paintings on view at the De Young in San Francisco, wouldn’t you say? Just so we’re clear on the terms. For a man worth $14 billion dollars who is not afraid to boast about it, and goes out of his way to show off his knickknacks, I’m sure you can agree that that would be a ‘substantial’ amount.  In that case, we do have a deal.

The trial should be very interesting if it goes forward. All of you have demonstrated, as you have just kept trying to strong arm Kate Paley unrelentingly for going on 5 years, expressing your contempt, exceptionably notable in the 3 days of grueling deposition you put her through, that you go through life without a thought or care for anybody but yourselves, and that you truly believe no one has any worth or value except yourselves. Its been quite remarkable to witness this up close and personal as it were. To be the direct recipient, etc. Who would have thunk it?


Fontain De La Tour


“And he spake a parable unto them, saying,

the ground of a certain rich man brought forth

plentifully; and he thought within himself, saying,

what shall I do, because I have no room where
to bestow my fruits?
And he said, this will I do:
I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and
there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
And I will say to my soul, soul, thou hast much
goods laid up for many years; take thine ease,
eat, drink, and be merry.
But God said unto him,
thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of
thee; then whose shall those things be, which
thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up
treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
 Luke: 12:16-21
I’ll just keep adding one painting a day until you say it’s substantial enough, ok? 

Shall we include the Picasso below, or stop with everything up to the Cezanne above?

Anyway, what ‘substantial’  means to you, and what it s to me, or, what you think I should be grateful to think it means for me, and what it actually does mean for me- well, that’s a lot of supposition.
Thank you for this opportunity to illustrate.

Let’s include the Lautrec, shall we?

God Wins! -today’s court ruling

Paley v. Radar Networks


Bankruptcy Court issues order permitting California fraud trial to resume against Ross Levinsohn, Steve Hall, and Nova Spivack. 

On August 10, 2012, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California issued an order permitting plaintiff Kate Paley, daughter of CBS founder William Paley, to pursue causes of action for fraudulent transfer against defendants Ross Levinsohn, Steve Hall, and Nova Spivack, who have been sued in California state court.

This ruling ends a five-month delay that was orchestrated by defendants to avoid a public trial.  On May 3, 2010, Ms. Paley filed a complaint in San Mateo Superior Court, alleging causes of action for fraud, fraudulent conveyance, breach of contract, unfair competition, and related claims.

Named as defendants were Ross Levinsohn (who most recently served as interim CEO of Yahoo!, Inc.), Steve Hall (managing partner of Silicon Valley venture capital firm Vulcan Capital), and Nova Spivack.  Plaintiff Paley was the primary investor in Radar Networks, Inc., a Silicon Valley startup managed by defendants.   Plaintiff contends that defendants mismanaged the company, resulting in its failure and the eventual fraudulent transfer of the company’s assets to another company controlled by Evri, Inc., another company controlled by defendant Hall.

Discovery in the case revealed that Levinsohn had an actual intent to defraud Ms. Paley.  In September 2009, for example, Levinsohn voted in favor of a transaction that converted Ms. Paley, without her consent, from a creditor who was owed over $3 million by Radar to an equity holder .  Levinsohn was told numerous times that converting Ms. Paley’s loan to equity was improper, but this conversion was a first and necessary step to making sure that Ms. Paley could not share any of the proceeds from the fraudulent sale of Radar’s assets to Evri.  Thereafter, in February 2010, as the sole member of Radar’s “Acquisition Committee,” Levinsohn rejected an offer from Intellectual Ventures for more than twice the amount offered by Evri.  Radar’s assets were then sold to Evri, giving defendants control over the assets, proceeds from the assets, and all the while leaving Ms. Paley with nothing from her investment.  This carefully orchestrated scheme forms the basis for the California lawsuit.

In an attempt to avoid trial, defendants filed motions for summary judgment in the California suit, which were denied in February 2012.  The case was set for trial to begin on February 27, 2012; that very day, defendants filed a notice of stay after orchestrating a bankruptcy filing on behalf of Radar Networks.   For months in the bankruptcy suit, defendants attempted to delay the proceedings in order to avoid a public trial.

Following this order by the Bankruptcy Court, Ms. Paley will immediately move the Superior Court to lift its stay and allow trial to resume.  The case is Paley et al v. Radar Networks, Inc. et al, Case No. CIV-494701, currently pending in San Mateo Superior Court in Redwood City, California.

‘Their exultation was like those who devour the oppressed in secret’ Habakkuk 3:14

press release- SiliconValley VC JuryTrial Starts 2-27-1

The trial that had been scheduled for over 2 years to begin this past Feb. 27, 2012, was shut down the night before it was to begin, after Steve Hall, of Vulcan Capital, and Ross Levinsohn, of Yahoo, announced they too are a creditors of Radar, the company they engineered the shutdown and sale of, to a company called Evri.

Steve Hall sat on the boards of and effectively controlled both Evri and Radar.

The acquisition committee which allowed the fraudulent conveyance to take place and selectively transfer all of Radar’s assets to Evri was comprised of Mr. Levinsohn alone. He decided to ignore the law and just “see what happens”, confident that with money and muscle, by bullying, threats and intimidation, this fraud could prevail, dismissing any concern or regard for the law or any consequences unrelated to his own gain.

Ross Levinsohn and Steve Hall declaring at literally the very last minute before the trial was to begin [see case CIV494701 online at the San Mateo County Superior Court website] that they both are now also creditors of Radar, was done solely for the purpose of stopping the trial.

Although Mr. Levinsohn remarked that Mr. Hall’s conduct was ‘evil’, he went along with it anyway. Both of them now claiming they are creditors of the same company they orchestrated the shutdown and sale of, is another bad faith effort on both their parts to prevent their fraudulent activities from coming to light.

Having failed in their efforts to have the trial dismissed, and having failed at having the mountain of evidence, which is sky high, of their fraudulent activities excluded from being presented in front of a jury, here again is another instance of the lengths Mr. Hall and Mr. Levinsohn are willing to go ‘to get away with murder’ by perversely declaring they and others are actually owed money from the company Mr. Hall bought and shut down, (Mr. Levinsohn being complicit), [See TechCrunch, ‘Evri buys Radar’] while at the same time also boasting that Mr. Allen has never said ‘no’ to him.

This manipulation of the law to pervert it’s intent is of a piece with the fraud perpetrated on Worddiamonds. The disdain of the rights of others, the condescending dismissal and relentless disparagment, to objectify as a mere “obstacle” to their fraud, the rights of anyone other than themselves, has been demonstrated to the nth degree. For the movie version of the book that is coming out which documents this entire saga, their depositions alone will provide the actors with what are displays of such sneering smugness, the audience will be falling on the floor with laughter. Mr. Hall and Mr. Levinsohn’s attempts to obscure their actions with bogus legal acrobatics that mock not only our legal system but the law in general continue what is almost a parody of the white collar shell games sprouting up throughout the land.

How many others has Vulcan or Mr. Levinsohn stolen from, harassed, slandered, bullied, threatened, hacked, and much much worse, with such relentless intent to steal, oppress, destroy, and now cover up, using, at every turn, such spurious contortions of the law?

We are asking for the prayers of believers so that all that has been perpetrated against Worddiamonds be exposed and defeated, and for restoration of all.

We are called to stand against evil, not to let it roll over us and others. “All it takes for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing’. This culture of greed and insider-trading with it’s dismissive attitude towards the law, is a cancer on our nation. It has to be confronted, even at the cost of our lives. Although taking a stand against corruption in this case has meant becoming a target of the most reprehensible slander- as if attempting to incite a mob in lynching, or burning at the stake, the one who speaks truth to power.

And yet we live in the United States of America, our freedoms preserved at the cost of mens lives. That imperceptible slide into the hypocrisy of the status quo is becoming, if not checked in time, an avalanche. Corruption brings ruin gentlemen, and ruin is not quantified by riches.

 In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
