PFP Comrades

     Tom Lacey [SF PFP] informed me sometime back that Robert O. Williams is a pseudonym / alias for Jan Tucker
[So Cal private eye] and master of COINTELPRO style dirty tricks. As you may know he and a few lackeys have been
engaged a “poison pen” smear campaign against me for several years now as well as illegally hacking into PFP
Treasurer Sheryl B.’s computer ,among other COINTELPRO type dirty tricks that seems to be his forte.
     The following forwarded message indicates that he hasrecently turned his evil eye on “Occupy Concord”. This explains some curious problems we have been having in Concord. It seems Tucker is paying far to much attention
to our activity’s in Occupy Concord. The arm of Sauron reaches far.
    Occupy Concord had decided to have a educational
film series. We arraigned with Round Table Pizza to use
their meeting room, as we (PFP,SDS,MDS) have for years, for public events.
After we posted the event to the PFP SCC list [ which is where I suspect Tucker saw it ] . Somebody called Round
Table Corporate [RTP] HQ and complained about “Occupy Concord” using the facility and about me in particular and
my history of trouble with the law. I now suspect it was Tucker from the evidence in the post below.
      RTP HQ sent the word down to the local pizza shop to
renege on our deal to use the facility ,three days before the event. We were shocked and outraged. We responded to
RTP HQ saying they could have us as paying, pizza eating customers or angry ‘Occupy ‘ protesters  picketing the restaurant and calling on other “Occupys” accross the country for solidarity and hitting them in the pocket book. This
frightened RTP HQ . A high up boss from HQ called me back and overruled the other suit from RTP HQ and said
that they had changed their mind for this one movie . We could go ahead and use the facility this time , but in the future we should find another venue.
We went ahead and had our event , it was fun ,and modestly successful. We decided to postpone the 2nd movie until afterwe decide what to do, at our next Occupy Concord GA on Feb 5. There has been some talk of holding a protest demo at RTP HQ ,which is conveniently located in Concord for their political bias against the ‘99%’, while they allow all sorts of other political and community groups to use their facility’s. The local restaurant manager [Jesus Gonzales ] has no problem with us and says he was just following orders from RTP HQ.
    In the the Robert O. Williams [Tucker ]post below he seems very concerned about both movie events. No doubt
he is curious as to how much damage his COINTELPROstyle  “poison pen’ dirty tricks campaigns are having on the movement. The fact that they will backfire in his face should give him little comfort.
     This is further evidence  that Jan Tucker is a oinker. Ifhe is not a paid government/COINELPRO agent then he is
doing their work for free ,which is just as bad. Not only is heintent on attacking & smearing me and other PFP activists, now he is attempting to harm the “Occupy” movement as well. Any body collaborating in any way with him should
be held with the highest suspicion. The movement must bewarned about about this curly tailed poser.

Okay, so what should I say about this latest attack other than that it’s humorous?  For starters, if what Steven Bruce Orcutt–aka Runninghorse aka Runningmouth–says about Tom Lacey is true, then Tom Lacey is ignorant.  People using various monikers (or for that matter, their real names for all I know, keep leaving false trails to me that an intelligent geek would realize are as obvious as the difference between gold and iron pyrite (fool’s gold):

1.  They post stuff on the internet and enter my email, URL (internet address) for one of my blogs or one of my websites, and/or snail mail address so that unsophisticated readers assume that I must have done the posting;

2.  They place telephone calls using “spoof sites” or “spoof cards” (“spoofing” technology allows people to select any telephone number they want to show up in caller ID systems; enables changing voice from male to female and vice versa, etc.) to leave a trail with one of my telephone numbers to traceable sources such as professional education webinars or teleconferences making it look like I logged in and said or posted something really bizarre;

3.  They put out bizarre leaflets with my contact information as though I am responsible for the propaganda, a process known in intelligence circles as creating “black propaganda,” something attributed to the targeted enemy that makes them look ridiculous or otherwise gets them in trouble.

If I thought that any sane person was taking Runningmouth and Tom Lacey seriously with their accusations that I’m using aliases and hacking into computers (which is of course a crime) I might be upset.  However, I dare them to produce any evidence they have that I am Robert O. Williams or have used that alias as they claim, or for that matter, any evidence that I supposedly hacked into the Peace & Freedom Party’s treasurer’s computer.  If they can’t produce any real verifiable evidence, they really should stop wasting their own time and mine with these nonsensical accusations.  They don’t seem to get it:  everything I have to say about them I say right here, in public, on the internet, under my own name.

About Jan Tucker

The Detectives Diary is an innovative tool combining Private Investigation and Journalism. In 1984, Steve Harvey's Los Angeles Times "Around the Southland" Column entitled Jan Tucker's program of providing low-cost "Opposition Research" services to indigent and working class candidates for public office, "Take Cover: Hired Mudslinger Rides into Town." A 1996 Los Angeles Times article by Henry Chu carried a sub-headline identifying Tucker as a "P.R. Guru." In November 2012, Tucker became Criminal Justice Columnist for Counter Punch Magazine and a commentator for Black Talk Radio. As a private investigator since 1979 and a former First Vice President of Newspaper Guild Local 69, Tucker takes these skills to a new level in the pages of the Detectives Diary with insightful and unique exposures and analysis of history and current events.
