ARTICLE - I, Psychopath

 A tutorial for understanding Craig and the other psychopaths we are encountering in this process. 


I, Psychopath, Part One

I, Psychopath
I, Psychopath - Synopsis
Thu, 25 Mar 2010 09:42 CD
Despite the best advice of the world's top experts, Australian documentary-maker Ian Walker was naive to think he could study a psychopath in the wild and not get hurt.

"I didn't really understand how manipulative a psychopath can be," the director of I, Psychopath now admits. "I thought it would be a fair fight. After all, the filmmaker has the power, really. The power of the camera and the edit."

But, as it turns out, Walker chose his subject well. 47 year-old Israeli-born Sam Vaknin is a former corporate criminal and a self-proclaimed master of manipulation and reinvention. Walker first interviewed him several years ago as the author of the book Malignant Self-Love: Narcissism Revisited.

Walker was intrigued by a throwaway line where Vaknin professed he thought himself a "corporate psychopath". Afterwards, the film-maker spent several years researching the subject, but always wanted to make a film which might show psychopathic behaviour in action. Because of his narcissism, Vaknin was almost certain to say "Yes".

So, in February 2008, joined by Vaknin's long-suffering but ever-loyal wife Lidija, the threesome embarked on a diagnostic road trip to the world's top experts in psychopathy. Via a battery of psychological testing and brain scanning experiments, Vaknin becomes the world's first civilian to willingly seek a diagnosis for psychopathy.

The scientists are pleased to meet him. The "non-violent" or "white collar psychopath" is a test subject they rarely find in their labs. Much about them, including how their brains work, remains a mystery.

"They don't come to the attention of the science but also not to the attention of the social system because they are not criminal," explains German-based neurobiologist Professor Niels Birbaumer. "They are not violent, viciously violent and that's why we don't know them. But their impact on society is tremendous, and it was never studied."

In I, Psychopath, there are effectively two films happening in parallel. As the encounters between Sam and the scientists unfold, the relationship between subject and director shifts and changes, inadvertently supplying a voyeuristic first hand account of what it is like to deal with an everyday "non-violent" psychopath.

Vaknin proves to be the real thing, scoring an 18 out of 24 on the official Psychopathy Checklist (Screening Version). Most people, outside of prison, would score a zero or one, according to the Checklist's inventor Professor Bob Hare.  MORE

Jonathan Scott Franklin - Dec. 4, 2009 Possible plea deal 2009 Plans for murder by Craig in 1999

Possible plea deal in murder-for-hire case

Yuba County prosecutors said Thursday they will offer a plea deal to Jonathan Scott Franklin, charged with attempted murder after allegedly paying an undercover police officer posing as a hit man $1,000 to kill his wife.
Deputy District Attorney Mike Byrne declined comment on the proposed agreement until he speaks with the now-ex-wife.
One of Franklin's attorneys, Nancy Southworth, said after meeting with Byrne and prosecutor Mechele Cook in Judge James Curry's chambers, that a motion to suppress tape recordings of Franklin allegedly discussing the plot with the undercover officer has been withdrawn, leaving the evidence valid "at this point."
A preliminary hearing, at which Curry would rule on whether probable cause exists to hold Franklin on the attempted murder charge, was continued until Dec. 11.
In the motion, Southworth and fellow defense attorney Phillipa Lauben contended police lacked a court order allowing the officer to "wear a wire" while meeting with Franklin.
Byrne responded that an order is not needed in cases where police have probable cause to believe a violent crime is likely.
Still in effect is another defense motion alleging police lacked probable cause to search Franklin's residence. The search found child pornography on Franklin's computer.

Morgan's Very Special Relationship with various men, including Craig

[Letter to Morgan appears on the site dedicated to outing her as well - Morgan Pillsbury Gell

Thanks! What a delightful Christmas present, and I mean that will all sincerity. I look every morning to see if the vulgar little psychopath I spawned has laid another egg.

If Craig had simply acted within the law, with honesty and simple decency, none of this would have happened. It would have saved my real children, and me, from intense suffering and the ugly manipulations you psychopaths so much enjoy.

All he had to do was split the stock options so I received dividends and not lie about the facts. You arranged for him to have Jacqueline Misho, the least ethical, ugliest (in every sense, actually) attorney you could possibly find. How nice of you! And naturally you did not mention he intended to leave me.  A decent man would have brought up the subject instead of manipulation events to use an unreasonably expensive "Christmas Holiday" to drain me of funds so I could not afford an attorney.  I paid, Craig claimed he had told me and split his last check with me.  Liar. 

So much more fun to see how much you could gouge me for, and you did that. It makes me sick to think about moving you into that apartment, decorating it for you when I was so strapped for money, trying to pay the mortgages because Craig, the psychopath-Incest-Porn-Dolt could not keep the only promise he made me – To file his taxes I had made out for him in 1989.

After I had cleaned up his tax mess and paid off our debts I did not even chastise him for having stolen my inheritance from Father, spent paying his bills, and outrageous demands for ever more posh living. He always whined that he 'would be able to pay for it later because it was 'in the pipe line.”

I was the one with assets when he and I married. Craig had nothing but debts.

But because of the IRS the pipeline stopped at GHS accounting and May. SEE HIS PAY STUB The dolt still does not take care of his taxes, from what Anne told me.

He and Dan have only themselves to blame. I would have been out of there so fast it would have made the Dolt's head spin. Cleaning the feces out of the tub, having to clean the cushions on the chairs because he insisted on sitting there after not wiping himself, urinating in the sink -  and those habits were cute compared to some of the other ones.

Someplace around here I have the list I made for Nathaniel Brandon when we were in therapy with him. “Jot down the things that bother you," he told Craig, and me, because Craig told him I did things he, Craig, did not like. Craig had half a page, hand written, I had six pages single spaced. Rest assured, It will be included in the book.

I'll never forget Brandon glancing at Craig's first then reaching for my list. He felt the number of pages, and looked quizzical. He glanced down at it, beginning to scan the writing.  Then he grabbed it in both hands and pulled it toward his face and started really  reading it with real intensity. Then he looked up at Craig. “Do you do...?” As he read them out Craig, looking like a deer in the headlights started nodding, yes, yes, yes.

Brandon's voice was almost shrill when he bellowed, “No one could love anyone who did these things!!!!” That was our last session, which saved us $450.00 a week. We were paying for you to go to Devers then, weren't we? That was a waste of money, too.

But I was patient, worked hard every day caring for my children, my husband, and volunteering politically and in the kids organizations. For two years I had had to drive Craig to work, 45 minutes each way, then pick him up because he had, again lost his license because of his driving record. With that and chauffeuring the kids I had 2 hours in the middle of the day when I was not behind the wheel.

Dan should think about this. Craig and he make great material, you know, and I have the documentation, which also works splendidly to enlighten the public to the need for the privatization of marriage by contract.  Since Craig kept none of his promises a divorce would have been very, very different - if I did not decide just to sue him for fraud.  

After all, he never intended a marriage in any terms I would have accepted with full disclosure, no psychopath does.  

All partnerships, and marriage is a partnership, require that partners be able to trust each other or know what the consequences will be.  With State marriage there are no consequences, the least ethical party wins, especially when they can 'arrange things' as Misho is so able to do.  

In late 1997 it was all about Craig and giving him what he wanted so Dan could play 'Bill Gates, Jr.,” a quid pro quo arranged so Craig would help Dan screw over Hightower by leading the walk out of employees which made it impossible for Hightower to exercise his partnership right to buy Dan out. Clearly, Dan is conscience challenged, too. 

For me, it was about keeping Arthur alive after his motorcycle accident.  I received not a single call from either Dan or Amy, warm-hearted people that they are.  This was when Craig and Morgan were plotting to strip me of money and discussing how better to ensure I would die of a heart attack.   

Life without Craig is sweet, actually. No piles of turds to clean out of the bed, that is a real benefit.

I'm taking Craig's advice. He was laying there in bed one night laughing so hard I was afraid the bed would collapse and he said he was just finishing with “Heart Burn,” by Nora Ephron. “You should do this to me if I ever leave you!” he said.

Indeed. It has taken a while, but now I have much more material.  And, at that, I would not be doing this if not for the organized (think conspiracy here) carried out by Craig, GHS,  the Manchesters, Gells, and, evidently, John Fund and friends.  The factor they have in common is an utter lack of integrity, the values represented by the word, not the software program owned by O'Dowd. 

And then, there is also the issue of psychopathy.

When you read Anne's emails and letters and other documents, along with what she told me, you see Craig wants to destroy women. It is a large part of the pleasure he feels with sex, knowing he will soon, or eventually, after he has extracted all he wants, destroy women, leaving them destitute and homeless. He did the same to you. Such a loving and attentive step-father! If you would only have a daughter he would give her even more, very special, attention. You are too long in the tooth for him, you know.

He told you what he wanted to do to me, he wanted me dead, which would save him money. You assisted. Birds of a feather, the two of you.

It's nice you have Laura to talk to, too. I'm going to start calling this...”why don't you just move on crap,” The Manchester. Laura used to say that to Wendy all the time.

Both of us have moved on. But debts remain to be paid. The book is icing on the cake. Do you think I spend more than a few minutes a day writing this stuff? Most of my time is spent writing very different content and talking to real people, you know, the ones with a conscience.

I know exactly what Craig thinks of as a 'good time.' Anne gave me lists of what he pays women to be sexually available to him. She called me after one 'dinner' with Regina Russell, who was 'procuring' for Craig. Craig had laid out what he would pay for finding a woman he screwed, one he 'dated' for a while, one me married. Icky. My only concern is who he is going to destroy next. What he does is criminal and he should be in jail. Maybe he and Alex could get adjoining cells. His only use in this world is as an illustration why action must be taken to deal with psychopaths. Of course, that is true of you, too.

And how nice of Craig to finally take you in hand and assist with your writing. Craig writes well, not very fast or creatively, but well, if he limits himself. You could not think for a moment I do not know what the clutch of you creeps are about, do you? Alex Montagu-Manchester was very vocal on his phone messages. 

You must remember you have indicted yourself with your own words and acts. Some are up on line for everyone to view. More are coming. 1999 Transcript 2001 Deposition Very illuminating documents, don't you think? Remember Anne's letter, warning us? Letter Anne had no idea what you really are.

Your comments on watching me battered are an interesting contrast to those made by a normal person, for instance, Ayn. Ayn Declaration, 1999. Yours show your utter lack of concern for someone who had done everything imaginable for you, despite the costs to myself. And it was always exactly what you insisted you had to have for your life to be worth living. “Oh, please, I have to be a Great Actress, or life is not worth living!” “If I don't have Eugene I'll never get married!” That was a scary thought, actually, the idea of having you around, whining, for the rest of my life.

I can't tell you how glad I am I now understand what you are and you are out of my life forever.

Item: You have never had an intellectual relationship with anyone, or anything, because your own interest was grabbing money and power, in trade for sex, usual occupations for a psychopath. You don't have a single intellectual neuron in your brain.

You used manipulation to divide and accrue power, starting when you began the destruction of my birth family when you were still in the single digits.

And later? You started destroying my real children and our relationships.

Morgan, the intellectual. What a joke.

Remember your delightful encounter with that black basketball player at the evening with Reason Foundation? I take you, Dolores and Ayn and Dawn to the evening's meet and greet to hear Walter Williams and even introduce you. The most intelligent remark you made to him was to ask what team he played for. You were how old? 29, right?

But I have to say, you returned my books with no wear and tear because you so obviously had not cracked even one cover. You were too busy with Eugene and getting to know his important and distinguished friends. Then he dumped you flat and you took up with my former boy friend. Then you snagged my estranged husband – but you had already been very intimate with him. What is this fixation you have with recycling men?

No one is going to believe your relationship with him was 'innocent.' No decent woman would have done the things you did. But a female psychopath would, and did.

He “took you to New York, London and Paris,” to cheer you up. Ha! He was hot to live out his incest fantasies, and doubtless did. A cheap thrill from his perspective. He then dragged you into Misho's office and tried to force you to sign a statement saying the two of you were not sexually intimate. Why would he do this if it had not been true? He was starting with the destruction portion of his agenda, you know.

And while you were in NY, screwing John Fund, interrupted by Craig, a deal was cut. John Fund and Craig, according to you and backed up by Craig's subsequent action in court, had said he wanted a 'permanent' relationship with you. You later discovered, to your chagrin, this was not true. Fund is as monogamous as a chimp in estrus. I have that list of his women right here, with recordings, remember?

Craig happily agreed to rescind the lie he told to the court when he stole the adoption documents, his last will and testament, written days after his agreement with Ron Foster (AKA) Kellett, was sealed by Ron giving up his parental rights.

Craig said Justin was not his biological child because you told him a lie, the kind of lie you have told all of your life. I told you I wished anyone but Craig was Justin's father. I told you this after one of the occasions when Craig had been horrible, in fact, after he battered me in your presence. I said, “I wish anyone – anything – had been Justin's father. A Baboon, an alien – even John Fund.” But John could not have been Justin's father because I know exactly when I became pregnant. But lies always suited you better than the truth, didn't they?

So, Craig goes into court and admits he is Justin's father so you, his secret, incestuous squeeze, can also provide him with a steady relationship with John Fund – who he is pursuing for other, non-sexual, reasons. Craig looooves power. He figured you could assist him with only only getting women but rubbing up to people with influence, too. I refer you to your 2001 Deposition, which John Fund, the love of your life, put up on line nearly ten years ago now. How special. How sick.

The Highly Intelligent Psychopath - Achieving Deviant Goals

                                                                                                     by Melinda Pillsbury-Foster

Understanding how psychopaths manipulate their victims, and even work together to prey on others, is a subject, about which, the public needs to be informed. Additionally, Americans need to understand the gravest threat to our personal autonomy and freedom, highly intelligent psychopaths. While less intelligent psychopaths also exact monetary costs, more intelligent ones destroy our institutions, using these for their own ends. These are the ones who work their way up the corporate ladder and into Congress, after all.
Psychopaths were estimated by neuroscientist Kent Kiehl to cost Americans 460 billion every year.
The series of stories you are about to read move from the personal to the corporate and political, following the acts of individual psychopaths.

This is a story using my own, real life, experiences, and those related to me by other victims. This series of articles will examine the strategies and so illustrate how psychopaths think.

These stories illustrate how psychopaths operate together and how and why others tolerate what is happening, in business and personally.

The first two psychopathic individuals discussed in this series are Craig Franklin and Morgan Barteaux Gell (AKA Pillsbury). In this article we focus on Franklin. I was once married to Franklin.

I gave birth to Morgan, whose biological father was, I recently learned, a psychopath, when I was 18. When Morgan, then Carolyn Anne Barteaux, was born I had already left him. There is strong evidence psychopathy, or tendencies to the condition, are inheritable.

This specific story chronicles sexual deviancy tolerated by a major defense contractor, now providing drone technology to our government. Most Americans are horrified by the off shore use of drones, and even more so, at the idea these will be used by law enforcement in America.

We ask ourselves, how could those who provide the technologies have failed to see the use of drones as a gross violation of human decency? The short answer is they knew, quite well. The longer answer is that profits trump all other considerations all too often. The corporate toleration for shocking behavior, herein illustrated, makes their production of drone technology entirely understandable.

Individuals whose standards for acceptable behavior change due to their association with psychopaths, are known as 'situational' psychopaths. The shift toward behavior which harms others in politics and business is now believed, by many, to be related to the number of highly psychopathic individuals  in these arenas.

This story begins with a document, already published to the Internet, written by my youngest daughter, Ayn Pillsbury which shows the strategy laid out by a psychopath intent on gaining sexual access to little girls who viewed him as a father.

Ayn's Declaration, written for the court in Santa Barbara in 1999, outlines events which took place eleven years previously when she was around twelve, in the presence of her sister Dawn, her brothers, Arthur and Justin, and her step-brother, Scott. Morgan Barteaux (AKA Pillsbury),was not present, as was usual. She was, at the time, attempting to extract Eddy van Halen from his marriage.

The most relevant part of the Declaration is at the beginning, but reading it in its entirety adds further insights.

The first episode of violence I recall was the year I was in eighth grade. That would have been in the autumn of 1988. Craig had taken us into the family room, just the kids. Mom wasn’t there. Craig wanted to talk to us about how incompetent Mom was. It was bad stuff about Mom. He was trying to win our loyalty. So then Mom came home and came into the room wanting to participate in the discussion. Craig was very angry and told her he was having a private discussion with the kids and that she wasn’t welcome.

Of course, being our mother, she believed the contrary. None of us objected to her being there. Then he became very loud and vituperative and became vocally and physically intimidating. He wrestled Mom to the ground and was on top of her holding her down and hitting her and so all of us kids were torn. We didn’t know what to do. We wanted to get him off of her, so I picked up a bar bell which was probably from 12 - 15 pounds and sort of tapped Craig with it on the back, not really wanting to hurt him but wanting him to realize that we didn’t approve of what he was doing. I don’t know how well it worked. Eventually he got off her.

There was some discussion for a while, Mom saying why she should be able to stay and Craig saying why she should leave. Then Craig again became very angry and punched Mom in the jaw, knocking her out cold. Of course she was standing so she fell over and I thought she might have struck her head on the hearth stones. So she hit the floor and we were all worried she was dead. She wasn’t responding. Craig left her there. We ran and got some water and someone felt her pulse. Then Scott and Edi (AKA Arthur) and Justin went to call the police. We stayed with Mom until she came around and the police came but Craig wasn’t arrested because Mom told them not to arrest him.

Mom did not hit Craig. Mom never hit Craig. Mom is the least violent person I know. Craig never scrupled to use physical intimidation to get what he wanted.”

I had asked Ayn to recall those times she remembered Craig battering me. In 1999 I did not understand really what Ayn's declaration documented, if considered along with events taking place after 1999. Now, with more information from his multiple relationships, the answers are glaring.

Craig began to denigrate me to my children and others who knew us as soon as we were married. He constructed and spun stories to make me look incompetent, stupid, venal, and unworthy of the respect due to a mother. This was essential to his goal of gaining access to my daughters so he could live out his fantasies of violation and incest. Destroying the credibility of the victim is essential. This was present in each instance, my own and others.

For psychopaths the truth is irrelevant. The story which advances their goal is the story which is told.

Strategies such as these take forward planning, demonstrating one of the less understood aspects of intelligent psychopaths, the ability for strategic planning and patience, coupled with complete ruthlessness in the advancement of the goal.

Craig's I. Q. is 180. Forward planning is as natural to him as breathing.

At the time, in 1988, I suffered a concussion and had no memories, for quite some time, of what had transpired. I did not, then remember Craig battering me or talking to the police. The children told me what had happened, but with no details. Now, officers responding to this kind of situation would have known not to listen to me. People with concussions are not capable of making informed decisions.

Additionally, I suffered Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Craig should have been out of the home – not just because of what he did to me but because of what he was then just beginning to do to my children. I say, “my children,” because although he later went through a form of adopting them, naming them as his children in his will, this was, clearly, only a step in a process which was not about being a father, but rather living out his sexual fantasies. Eliminating my former husband, their father, from the equation, was part of his plan. Ron Foster, relinquishment of parental rights.

Ron relinquished his rights, June 21, 1989. Craig adopted the children June 26, 1989. The two events were clearly related. Craig would go into court and lie on this point ten years later, having conspired with his divorce attorney, Jacqueline Misho, to steal the records.

Denigrating one parent by another is known as Parental Alienation Syndrome. This technique is used to manipulate children and gain their trust. The same technique is used by sexual predators to alienate children from those who will protect them. Craig was not a parent in any terms we would accept because his goal was, in the first instance, sexually predatory.

Morgan also engaged in alienating my children from me, first for her own purposes, then to support Craig in his agenda. For the psychologically disordered, harm to others, is not a consideration.

While Legal Abuse Syndrome is now recognized as a form of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, abuse suffered at the hands of a psychopath is not seen as causing similar, and worse, symptoms. I have survived only because I began to study the symptoms and understand psychopathy, despite the emotional anguish suffered, which included the realization I had never had a relationship with either Craig or Morgan. No one has a relationship with a psychopath in any normal, human, sense.

I began to understand this when I retrospectively put together a time line, remembering what he had told me, and what he had done. Then, I understand his real motives. This year I did the same for Morgan.

The marriage I had entered into was a fraud used to gain access to my children, milk me for money, and use me in a variety of other ways. Craig's intention was to accomplish his goal and leave me penniless. Keep this in mind, as the theme will reoccur.

The psychologically disordered use familiar human institutions as avenues for carrying out their predatory behavior routinely. Marriage, parenthood, all familial relations, make us vulnerable when psychopaths are involved. We need to understand this, our courts need to be take this into account.

Those who benefit by enabling these behaviors for their own profit must be taught this is a form of fraud which will not be tolerated.

In public officials, for instance judges, either engaging in this behavior, or allowing it to take place by others, for profit, should be grounds for removal and incur liabilities. It can also be handled as a violation under color of law.

Craig's Corporate Partner

In this instance Dan O'Dowd, who with his wife, Amy owns 97% of Green Hills Software, Inc. had little real experience with business when he partnered with Glenn Hightower, his boss, and founded GHS in 1982. Craig, who he hired as Senior Vice President for Advanced Products Development in 1986, prevented him from having to return to Hightower for more funding and diluting his holding by actually selling Green Hills products before he even knew Dan. Craig read the code and judged them simply on their merits, recommending their purchase to companies with which he was doing business.

Craig also provided the edge expertise which made Dan's success possible from the late 1980s until he, Dan, was able to orchestrate a forced buy-out of Hightower in 1998 – 1999. This link, and the links which follow, tell the story through the court documents generated from the resulting law suit.

The opinion expressed by the court in [d.] was that Hightower was likely to prevail if there is proof of unlawful action by O'Dowd. While there had, in fact, been a conspiracy to make it impossible for Hightower to exercise his option to buy O'Dowd out Hightower was unable to prove this at the time.

The deal struck between Craig and Dan was for Dan to recharacterize the stock and for Craig to run the 'Green Hills Personnel Strike.' Promises of lavish benefits were made by Craig to other key personnel. Morgan's 2001 Deposition touches on the conspiracy in which Craig was paid to organize the strike by an exchange of favors. One of these was O'Dowd's having a fraudulent stock option agreement written.

But it is very possible the manipulation went on in several directions. Dan and Craig saw a lot of each other and while Craig and I were still married Craig would come home shaking with rage because Dan passed on to him remarks, Dan said, were from Glenn, which were far less than complementary toward Craig.

Dan' s own personal goal was to be richer than Bill Gates. To accomplish this he had to be rid of his partners. Stories of Dan's belief he was smarter and better at computers than Gates traveled to me both from Craig and others at the company. I have considered the possibility Dan, too is psychopathic, but lacking more substantial evidence than his willingness to destroy me, my children, and suborn the court system, I have no opinion in the matter.

However, this interesting note should be considered. In 2003, according to Anne Fisher, who was eating dinner with Craig when he showed her an envelope and told her what was inside. The envelope enclosed a deposition from a law suit settled in 2001 given by Morgan Pillsbury. It was addressed to John Fund of the Wall Street Journal. It was Green Hills Software, stationary and postage was paid.

The deposition inside was uncertified, meaning Morgan had no chance to review and edit the document. Craig would have had to obtain it from the Green Hills attorney. Why would Dan Risk providing this to John Fund if there was no accrued benefit to himself?

Look at the graph below, from the GHS site, for how much Dan benefited, and when. 

Craig joins GHS 1986 - Government Contracts 2003

Although it should not have been mailed, or placed on Fund's website, the deposition is, in fact, revealing. In the deposition Morgan states she has had a borderline personality disorder all of her life. But she had never been diagnosed as having one by a competent professional. She admits Craig came on to her sexually and recalls having conversations with him where he insisted on discussing his sexual attraction to her and to my other daughters.

Morgan relates Craig's goal of finding a blond haired, blue-eyed twenty-something woman who will cater to his every whim, as well and Craig's insistence Morgan, who he is also approaching sexually, find him other women as well.

John immediately put it up on his website, started for him by intimate friend, Gail Heriot. The two had been intimate for over a year at this time. Email documenting their meetings in various hotel rooms, dated 1/13/02 10:05 PM. John's only comment on the deposition was Morgan's admission she had a borderline personality disorder. But Craig's other reported activities coincide exactly with the same pattern exhibited later with Anne Fisher. When the deposition was given, in 2001, Anne and Craig were still in the honeymoon phase of their relationship.

Craig would prove himself to be a serial abuser, with the same patterns recurring with multiple women.

At about the same time, 2003, Fund put up his website Dan was struck with a moment of patriotic fervor and started the Fallen Heroes Last Wish Foundation.   2010 2011 2012

From this time on government contracts became very much part of Dan's business. This suggests to me John Fund, through his friends Karl Rove and Dick Cheney, arranged government contracts as another exchange of favors.

Craig was very serious about leaving me destitute. In a phone recording made in 1999, Craig discussed stock options with Morgan. It is clear as you read, no matter what, Craig and Green Hills do not intend me to get even the tiny amount of stock the court awarded to me in the decision rendered in Divorce Judgment, August 16,1999.” It was planned in advance.

Craig had agreed to assist with Dan's take over of Green Hills to benefit himself. One of these 'benefits' was to destroy me financially, part by having a new stock option agreement written by Ruth Fisher, an attorney in Los Angeles, in late 1997 or very early 1998. Craig told this to Morgan at the time and, when we were again talking, she relayed this to me.

By 2003 John had his reasons for helping Craig. By then Morgan had stabbed Craig in the back and the war between Morgan and Fund had involved Fund's friends, Karl Rove and Dick Cheney. Psychopaths routinely stab each other in the back.

Morgan had started talking to me again in 1999 because she needed me to provide support Craig had withdrawn and help her get Fund to the altar.

Until recently I did not realize what had actually transpired. I also had no idea I was being double-teamed by two psychopaths, Craig and Morgan.

I began to understand this when I retrospectively put together a time line, remembering what they had told me, done, and then understanding their real motives.

Craig's Fixation on Incest

Each of us is impacted by what happens in our own lives and from the reflected memories of those who raise us. Craig's first sexual arousal came when he was sixteen, while wrestling with his younger sister, Priscilla, then twelve. He did not molest her. But thereafter his focus would be young girls with whom he had a familial relationship, who were virgins, and who he was betraying. A life-time pattern was set.

Craig's parents were rigid, highly domineering, and cold. Craig's father, a double vice-president of the University of Southern California, was also an attorney. His reputation at USC was built on fundraising, and I was told, over and over again, he had raised over 100 million for the university.

Dr. Franklin's communications with his children came in the form of a news bulletin, announcing in gloating language, how much he had raised by persuading elderly people, whom he and his wife paid assiduous attention to, to leave money to the university instead of their families. These potential donors were never invited to their home, instead, Dr. Franklin and his wife entertained them at the Los Angeles Country Club, membership paid for by the USC. Listening to them discuss these people, gloating over their success and the anticipated consternation of the donors children, was disgusting.

Craig and his siblings grew up seeing this as normal.

Anne Fisher, another woman abused by Franklin

Anne Fisher, whose relationship with Craig continued for many years, first contacted me in the beginning of 2003 by email. Our communications continued sporadically over the years.

Craig had told her a story about his childhood he had not shared with me. When Craig was around two he wandered into the hallway at night and his mother, dressed in a scanty negligee, saw him, became angry, and spanked him with a Bible. According to Craig, as reported by Anne, she then went into her bedroom and engaged in sexual intercourse with her husband. It is, naturally, impossible to know if this happened, but from Anne's report it clearly had heavy significance for him.

Craig told me about his arousal with Priscilla, but I did not realize this was anything more than a single incident. Over the years we were together, however, I was occasionally uncomfortable at his insistence I have plastic surgery so I looked like his sister. I refused. Priscilla is blond, blue-eyed and her face is highly neotenous.

I took his peculiarities to be simple eccentricities of no real significance. I was obviously wrong on this point.

After Craig left me Ayn told me Craig had long been exposing himself to her when she walked past our room and I was not in the house. Further pieces of information seeped in through several sources, although I have never really been in contact with Craig again.

The same year I began talking to Anne a private detective I hired to get Craig's address for service of papers found Incest Pornography and a receipt from the sex shop in his trash neatly contained in a gift bag. He had watched Craig deposit it there.

Anne Fisher did not initially tell me very much about her relations with Craig. It was a serious relationship in that Anne became financially dependent on Craig, who agreed to fund a business she was starting and buy 'them' a home. He even took her and her two children to look at houses and found one he agreed to buy. Declaration Time Line No. 1 Time Line No. 2

The relationship was highly traumatic for her, and the stories she told me directly, and through letters and other documents she sent, were chilling.

Her relations with Craig put her, and her two children, at real risk, disrupted her real relationships and left her, and her children, homeless.

This is reproduced from Time Line 2 , which Anne sent me in 2008. The events chronicled date from around 2005, taking place after Craig had enticed her into dependence on him and then raped and destroyed her ability to make a living. Craig reentered her life when she was mending matters.

Anne Fisher -HE ASSURED ME THAT HE WOULD NEVER EVER DO THAT AGAIN… and that we would work together at this business, he with his business experience and my technical trade knowledge. I began to build the business.

At first it was great, until I was at the point of contracts and office space and equipment purchases. He became evil… during this time… That is the best way to describe it. He had me in his control again and he used me as anything but a business partner.

He held over my head that he would take the business, destroy the business… He used me as his own private escort service, making me meet with prostitutes, writing letters to his prostitutes and promoting him as a decent man so that possibly? He could get whatever he wanted. I found notes from other girls that he was investing in their company at the same time and sleeping with them and lies… to me… He gave one girl 30k, and he told me he could only give me 5500/month and had no money for the operating start up cash he had promised…. So, I had to pay my bills, around 3k and then take about 2k a month to push the company forward each and every month and in this time I was used like a butt wipe and was privy to the other arrangements that made me realize that I was being taken advantage of, however, I couldn’t step back or lose it all and I couldn’t really step up because? I felt I owed craig his share and would lose it all. In 2007 he paid my daughter 3k/month to help out and the halfway through the year, cut me off, and kept her on (to punish me or cause grief)… and my entire family saw me, my children, saw me homeless… after craig had promised me all this. I tried to commit suicide twice or more. Entered therapy I cannot afford and have terrible shame, guilt and embarrassment due to this being a small town and having craig not “not” have the money, but choosing not to continue me or help me until I can get a job. It’s like he enjoys seeing me lose it all and then he’ll be back… to offer me money since I am completely at a loss to keep things and not lose anymore, my self esteem is in the bucket and I have no friends because how can you tell anyone what you are going through like this?

Craig has basically destroyed my reputation and my ability to be seen my those in my town as anyone other than a “hustler or a gold digger or a stupid ho”. This is far from who I am and from who I came here to be…”

Over the years Anne and I talked on the phone and got to know each other, to some extent, though we never met in person. On the phone she also provided information. All of this information was provided for my use and at my discretion because she was frustrated with her inability to either extract herself from Craig's circle or successfully find justice.

In a declaration Anne sent to me she states Craig raped her four times. Verbally, she had told me about two occasions involving herself and another audio tape she has of Craig admitting his rape of Ivory May Kabler.

Anne told me she attempted,twice, to report Craig to the police, who refused to listen. Craig was, after all, protected as the Senior Vice President of a seemingly respectable company, Green Hills Software, Inc. Those with wealth are protected by both law enforcement and our courts.

It was Anne who also told me Craig had been meeting women online and using frequent flyer miles, available through his travel for Green Hills Software, to bring them to Santa Barbara for the weekend where he would rape them and put them, traumatized, back on the return flight. This was pure aggression and a violation of the Mann Act. These women were not in his 'target zone,' for young girls, just lonely women who believed they had found someone who really cared about them.

Emotionally destroying, raping, and humiliating women was, clearly, a goal for Craig, an element of his continuously repeating pattern of abuse.

At one point Anne gave me a tour of one of the 'Sugar Daddy' sites she handled for Craig. It was horrifying to realize how she had been used as she took me through the site and showed me letters she had read for Craig from other women.

The betrayal theme, which is present in Craig's core fantasy, was very much being fed, if what Anne told me was true. I have no reason to believe it was not, as I later heard from Morgan he had brought one of these women down to meet her while she was moving from her original apartment to a cheaper one down the street. These themes are also present in Morgan's 2001 Deposition.

Craig continually returned to Anne through the time they knew each other, according to her time lines and declaration and from what she told me. This is a typical form of extended control used by psychopaths to destroy the self-confidence and integrity of the victim. Anne has survived, and started her own business, which was no easy thing. But she is very much the exception in these cases. Talking to her persuaded me of Craig's ruthlessness and lack of conscience. Anne was treated like a utility to be picked up, enjoyed, and then again destroyed while Craig enjoyed every step of the process.

Craig lived out the same scenario with multiple women, whose names I have. Details will be provided in the book, now being prepared.

But Craig, while enjoying these interludes, also keeps his eye on the future with long on planning. A clear learning curve appears as he grows more and more ruthless in his pursuit of his goal.

During the years past he was also pursuing other lines of action. The long term planning for the goal of incest included seeking a woman young enough to have children, preferably girls. In parallel, Craig also attempted to get unsupervised visitation with his eight-year old granddaughter, the daughter of his oldest son, Jonathan Scott Franklin, when Scott was charged with paying a hit man to murder his estranged wife and her new boy friend. Craig entirely ignored the existence of his grandson, two years older.

Scott's wife, Kathy, alarmed at this, resisted Craig having any such visitation and this was denied by the court, who put her and the two children in a victim protection program.

Craig and Scott had conspired to leave Kathy destitute, which doubtless suited Craig's own ultimate goal, even if Scott had not tried to have Kathy murdered. Craig's comment to Anne on being told was, “How could he (Scott) be so stupid? They always suspect the husband!” No shred of concern for Kathy was expressed.

When my youngest daughter, Ayn, had a little girl Craig refocused his attentions there and made plans to 'become a part of his grand-daughter's life.'

Craig is a danger to little girls, who he immediately begins to manipulate. This is true for his own relations and for others. His points of entry into relationships include music and the film industry.

Songs, especially ballads and country western music plays a part in Craig's plans. Craig planned a children's album and wrote a song for his grand-daughter, the lyrics for which appear here, and were produced for the album, “Celeste Sings for Kids,The album was publicized professionally, and Craig thanked those who helped publicize it. Here is one of his thank yous which appears on a list of endorsers. The site is To Market Kid.

Craig Franklin, President - Romantic Realist Records, LLC
Words can't begin to describe the difference Regina has made with my children's music project and its visibility in the marketplace. Regina took my project from 0-100 in two months! She has made all the difference! Anyone who has the good fortune to work with Regina Kelland should jump at the chance!” “
It is not possible to know when you are dealing with the disordered, necessarily, especially when you never have the opportunity to know them more than professionally.

Note that the song, “Justin's Lullaby” was not written by Janet Smith and Craig Franklin. It was written by Craig, tuned up by me in 1983. Justin is my son with Franklin. Psychopaths continually reinvent history to suit their purposes. On this site Craig features a song, “To Have and to Hold,” he wrote on the occasion of our formal wedding. I am, naturally, not mentioned.
Craig also positioned himself as being adversarial to sex offenders by funding a movie titled, Barracuda,” a B sort of movie produced by Mercury Rising Films. Both of these ventures were well thought out to put him in place to form relationships allowing for access to young girls by simply spending money and continuing to play around with his guitar.
After Green Hills removed Craig from their management team last summer Craig moved on to another project, Craig Franklin's Tea Party,” a movie. The webmaster is an associate from Mercury Rising Films, which would produce the film.
Over the last several years I have been outing both Craig Franklin and Green Hills Software. My most recent website, Craig Franklin and Green Hills Software, went up within 45 minutes of reading this email, which I published on the site.
Craig is a sexually deviant psychopath whose focus is seduction, sexual violence, betrayal, and leaving the victim homeless. One of these scenarios plays out as raping little girls, preferably daughters, or grand-daughters now, when they are around twelve years old. Here, he also begins with seduction, moves to building trust and thereafter devolves into a series of betrayals, sexual and financial, intended to leave both the mother and daughter completely traumatized and financially destitute.
It is impossible to know how many women and girls he has traumatized or what he has cost these individuals in peace of mind, financially, and so many other ways. But, in retrospect, it is very easy to see what he will continue to do.
Green Hills Software, Inc., enabled this behavior, conspiring with Craig to destroy both myself and my children. They, Dan and others in the company, did this to secure Craig's cooperation when it was needed. They removed him from their 'team' when the risk of exposure finally became to high. They profited enormously over the years and now are repositioning themselves with absolutely no show of conscience.
Craig's website, Romantic Realist, is now down, as is the Romantic Realist My Space. But his Ivory May My Space site is still up.
Anne expressed a wish to ensure Craig's sexually predatory behavior would be brought to an end. These articles, and the book, are being written, in part, to accomplish this goal.

Next: Morgan and Craig, a relationship.
