Are you ready to go down the rabbit hole? To visit a surreal world, where black is white and white is carrots?
A friend, Metacognician in Shanghai, describes the situation as follows: “Life is more absurd than movies. I've gone down the rabbit hole too, when it just becomes more and more strange and you wonder how that all is supposed to make sense.” I asked him if I should just embrace it. He answered, “Why should you ... change the universe?”
It started with a psychotic named Jim Kiraly who resides, we think, at 6329 Twinberry Circle, Avila Beach, California.
Jim Kiraly is a respected citizen. A churchgoer. A Vice President of Transamerica Corporation. And a violent abuser who tried to use an emergency anti-violence measure, one intended to protect battered women, to stop his victim in a wheelchair from writing a book.
Concise enough? :)
For attorneys: Jim Kiraly filed for CLETS against his son and victim, who lived 200 miles away, did not own a car, and was in a wheelchair. His son and victim was not asked to end communications. Jim had no (zero) specific and relevant allegations that were not perjury. But he turned down repeated offers of no-contact and a signed stipulation that gave him everything but CLETS. He insisted on CLETS if his victim ever once “discussed” him with third parties.
In the end, Jim Kiraly signed an agreement far weaker than the ones he'd been offered.
A review of Court paperwork and other materials will tend to confirm that Jim and other parties, including attorneys on all sides, committed multiple felonies, crimes, and faux pas. :P
The word “abuser” is stated here publicly and without equivocation. A formal offer is hereby made to reaffirm the word in writing and under oath. Attorneys will understand the significance of the point. In short, there is little terror of a threatened defamation suit on this side. Actually, we feel that such a suit will fit nicely up Jim Kiraly's abuser ass.
Jim has one son, Ken Kiraly, who invented the Amazon Kindle and is one of the leads at Amazon's secret Lab126. Another son, Tom Kiraly is one of the leads, a Vice President-CFO type, at medical insurance firms, including one of the largest, Humana Corporation.
These people and some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley legal circles have committed or are involved in multiple crimes.
For the next decade or two, we're going to explore the crimes that these people committed, the motivations and the denial involved, the background and histories that led each person to make the choices that they did, and ways to build upon what happened and move towards positive societal goals.
There's plenty to go over. These people committed or were involved in: Spousal abuse, child abuse, DDOS (a highly prosecutable violation of CFAA), extortion, perjury, conspiracy to commit perjury (a possible felony), false police reports, conspiracy to file false police reports (a possible felony), unlawful threats, barratry, defamation, malpractice, civil harassment, criminal harassment, abuse of process, and violations of SCCBA Professional Standards.
The point was to force Jim's oldest son and victim, me, to sign a gag order. I was in a wheelchair. I'd never made a single inappropriate threat against my abuser. I wasn't even asked to not to call anybody. But Jim threatened to put me in a violence database unless I agreed never to write about him.
I won the right to write, but I lost my home of 25 years, most of my possessions, my chances for retirement, everything. Everything but a realization.
I can make a difference. I can conduct research for legitimate and reasonable purposes, document what happened, and analyze the choices of the people involved:
- Grace Kiraly, abuse victim and Christ Follower.
- Gail Cheda, slightly demented Realtor, spittle flying.
- Tom Stutzman of Thomas Chase Stutzman, a Family Law attorney whose hobbies include martial arts and alleged sexual harassment
- John Perrott of Thomas Chase Stutzman, a personable albeit lazy Family Law attorney who has a slight tendency towards fraud and malpractice
- Chris Burdick, head of the Santa Clara County Bar Association (SCCBA). Chris, you broke a written promise to speak with me because, you said, we had “Prior...” You didn't finish the sentence. Were you worried that I might take false statements to the State Bar? What's the deal with you and Hoge Fenton, anyway? What will we find if we dig?
- Tracie Zerr of Thomas Chase Stutzman, a woman of boundless intelligence and sensitivity.
Maggie told me that she didn't know what she could say to me about what happened. However, we have decades to work it out. It will be productive. I'd like to direct the attention of attorneys and other parties to the:

The Kiralys and their associates have tried to take down the sites before. Actually, they've committed multiple felonies in the process. It's no big deal, but to make a point, we're giving everything away for the low price of... well, free.

Saturday 2012-11-10 — General
121110.2. Slept abruptly 9:30pm Friday to 1:30am Saturday. It was as odd as Thursday night was. Rested again two or three times throughout the day.
121110.3. I worked on the problem the attorney from Friday had asked about. I was able to solve his problem. We met for a while at Armadillo Willy's. I showed him what I'd changed and explained new procedures.
121110.4. I had lunch afterwards. This was the first meal I'd had since Wednesday. I was unwell the rest of Saturday. This was due more to the food than to the issue of rest. But I met with additonal people in IRC and worked on things to the extent possible.^ TOP
Friday 2012-11-09 — General
121109.1. Slept abruptly 8:30pm Thursday to 1:45am Friday. The abruptness of sleep some days recently is disconcerting. I don't think it's normal tired.
121109.2. I met on Friday afteroon with an attorney who needed help with a software issue. I'll refer to this particular attorney as DNA. DNA gave me his laptop temporarily so that I could work on it. I don't think I was well most of the time for the rest of the day.^ TOP
Thursday 2012-11-08 — General
121108.1. Slept 10:30pm Wednesday to 4:00am Thursday. Thursday saw a few steps completed but wasn't as productive as I might have hoped. During the first half of the day, I handled errands, looked for employment, and waited to hear from my attorney. During the second half, I spoke with Nancy M. by phone and helped people in IRC to the extent possible.
Nancy M. phoned me and was very kind. This was helpful. It was only mid-day but I was fading. The conversation may not have accomplished much but I said what I felt needed to be said.
121108.2. During errands I walked by a business called Know Knew Books. One of the few surviving bookstores I was aware of in the area. Keplers and Book Buyers were the other two that I was familiar with.
Know Knew Books had been in the process of closing down permanently due to high costs and low profit. However, somebody there told me today that a sympathetic customer had invested in the business. The bookstore, relic of the past but important nonetheless, would survive a while longer. I was glad.^ TOP
Thursday 2012-11-08 — Hello, Michael
121108.2. I left the following voicemail message at Hoge Fenton. Important: This copy was transcribed partly by hand so there may be minor mistakes. However, the wording is believed to be reasonably accurate:
This message is intended for Michael but is being copied to others both as a courtesy and due to the fact there may be issues with Hoge Fenton's voicemail system. Shareholders are included as I assume on a good faith basis they may wish to know of actions by the firm or associates that may reflect on the integrity of the firm or associates.
First, I'll note that Hoge Fenton or associates issued threats recently to take actions that may be false and fraudulent and that may involve actual prosecutable crimes on the part of the firm or associates. If there is any confusion or uncertainty regarding my position on the threats by Hoge Fenton or associates, visit the website michaelbonetto dot com or natashaparrett dot com to read a statement dated circa November 5, 2012.
The purpose of the current communication, i.e., this message, is connected to the same website. Hoge Fenton or associates received or should have received a document set circa September referred to informally as release 120905. As a point of information, a new release of the document set will be posted on the website today or this week. Additionally, a few hundred family photos may be posted soon for those who are curious or interested but this is a lesser issue.
These remarks are not intended in and of themselves to constitute delivery of the document set or photos to Hoge Fenton or associates. Additionally, they do not constitute a commitment to notify the firm or associates of future releases.
As a side note, connected to lawful and appropriate steps, I'd like to refer Hoge Fenton or associates to the parts of the 120905 and current document sets that discuss research into one or more books and which, if I remember correctly, cite the simple fact that Michael and Natasha are part of the story now.
A story that connects, by the way, to events of interest to society as a whole, to issues related to abuse of different types, including abuse both of people and of the legal system, and which certainly enjoys First Amendment protections and protections of other types. In short, lawful and appropriate research is proceeding.
In closing, there is a minor technical issue. I've asked Hoge Fenton staff to comment on how cases in general that are handled by particular attorneys may be listed so that records may be lawfully and appropriately retrieved. Hoge Fenton staff has responded that senior management may be able to answer the question. I trust that the answer will be forthcoming.^ TOP
Wednesday 2012-11-07 — General
121107.1. Slept 8:00pm Tuesday to 4:00am Wednesday. I ate on Wednesday. This was the first day since Friday 121102. It didn't work out well. As usual there were issues related to breathing and tiredness until the end of the day.^ TOP
Wednesday 2012-11-07 — Kappelin on Obligations
121107.2. Kappelin offered thoughts related to people in general that were worth thinking about.
One interesting part was connected to time. On Monday and Tuesday, I worked on network code for Kappelin for free; possibly hours total. On Wednesday, he told me that a half-hour discussion of things going on with me was burdensome for him. This struck me as inconsistent. If I was willing to spend hours helping him, should he express irritation about talking to me?
But Kappelin pointed out that I “liked” to help people. He felt that there should therefore be no connection between time that I spent working for free for him and time that he spent talking to me.
Does this make sense? A lot of people seem to feel this way. What does it mean to do something for somebody? If a gift of time is freely offered but is also requested, does the recipient have any obligations?^ TOP
Wednesday 2012-11-07 — End of the day
121107.3. Wednesday ended abruptly for me while I was talking to Metacognician. I faded out due to having eaten. Here's a slightly edited copy of the end of the discussion:
Your text is usually country neutral. That one sentence fragment struck me as German. The second half. I can't say why.
It may have reminded me of my grandmother. Olga. She was half German. Had a wry sense of humor. I made her son Anatol laugh once. He was my uncle. I mention him in the latest version of the long documemt.
These people had a subtle sense of humor. I gave Anatol a copy of the story, “The Brave Little Toaster”. The original version and not the kids' version. He thought it was great.
The family, that side, had German and Slavic influences. It was my mother Grace Kmeta's side. On my father James Kiraly's side, they were Austrian Hungarian, as I've said.
Those in my biological family who cared that I was alive are gone. The ones who wish me dead remain. It would have been better if God had chosen to make it the other way around. All attachment to the refuse I'm related to is gone.
I did love some of the ones who loved me. I was not able to understand or articulate this fact. Only now. Now that they are gone.^ TOP
Tuesday 2012-11-06 — General
121106.1. Slept 11:00pm Monday to 5:45am Tuesday.
121106.2. I promised Kappelin last week that I'd write some network code. He waited patiently and I caught up with the task Tuesday night. If you'd like to see the code, click on this link:
121106.3. I'd meant to do quite a bit more on Tuesday but I found I was physically weak earlier than usual. Fell asleep abruptly in the early evening.^ TOP
Tuesday 2012-11-06 — Daeken Forsaken
121106.4. I rhyme sometimes these days when I'm talking or writing informally. Daeken, Cody Brocius, commented on this today. I responded with a rough draft of a short poem. There's a more polished version titled Daeken Forsaken on my poetry page. If you're curious, here's the link followed by the poem itself:
Daeken, since you ask
Take me to task
So bluntly and rudely
I hear a rhythm with appeal
When I write I feel
I'm singing out loud to you
The lines I write
In my sight
Are a song
If you can't accept that
Right off the bat
/IGNORE is where I belong
So chill. Whitebread Hacker
Not a Slacker
But a drag is sort of
What you are
Go decode an abode API sub-par
Tuesday 2012-11-06 — Letter to Nancy M.
121106.5. Here's a letter that I sent to Nancy M. on Tuesday.
1. You said “Just curious: what is his native language? “bin” instead of “been” could either be phonetic or, since it's a common German word, interference... just curious.”
English. It's my understanding that the spelling issue is related to a slight disability. However, he communicates well in general. The context is a virtual worlds project that I became involved with while seeking employment. I've attached a couple of screenshots. You'll see more if you visit the blog and click on the server nexus link.
If you visit my technical site and read the IRC conversations, he's one of the people who appears on that page. Twisted Time, who Kevin and you know quite well, is another.
2. You also said, “So, are you going to want to come up here on a Friday or not? The invitation still stands, but I do need to get it “scheduled”.”
This would be nice. But there is a misunderstanding. As was always the case in “Bob's” life. I'm not leaving this month. Tactician, mentioned in the blog, is a Fundamentalist Christian who's attempting to assist with the search for employment. Kevin, and others you know, won't even speak with me. But somebody thousands of miles away who I've never met face to face is trying to help.
I feel this is a sign that Faith exists. Not a sign of the Divine but of Faith. Tactician is genuine in a way that the majority of “Christians” are not. So is my attorney, by the way. Another Fundamentalist. He sent James Kiraly a legal document damning the man to Hell.
3. If Tactician and I are successful, I'll have the funds both to fight the Kiralys and to have a home. If not, I'll need to start disposing of my remaining possessions. When this process is completed, I'll leave the apartment I've had for 25 years and the state I've lived in for over 50 years.
4. There are other factors. The Kiralys are proceeding in an increasingly erratic manner. It's possible they'll make additional attempts to involve the police. I should probably set aside time to file criminal complaints against them. The police told me what to do months ago but I didn't follow through. This step is one I should have addressed long since.
5. The bottom line is that I have no firm idea at this point of anything that's going to happen. I only know that I've lost 60 pounds, I'm physically exhausted much of the time, my home is being taken by a violent and delusional abuser, and most people I speak with talk about “responsibility” or “fault” instead of offering assistance. People with obligations to me won't even take phone calls to discuss possible storage of the bookcases that I love.
If this does not address your own concerns, I am regretful. But after half a century I am speaking my mind and the truth.
Monday 2012-11-05 — A gift
121105.1. I received two gifts on Monday. Here's a screenshot of one. I may add screenshots of the other when there's time. Both gifts lifted my spirits.
Monday 2012-11-05 — General
121105.2. Slept from 2:00am to 9:45am Monday. Physically exhausted again after completing exactly 100 pages of writing over the weekend.
121105.3. I spoke with Benjamin IRL. He's a Washington lobbyist who's been very kind. We've talked over the past few years and he's offered his time despite the fact there's little I can offer him in return.
Benjamin feels I may be able to supplement actions at the Bar Association with procedures at the State level that may lead to State actions against OPC (Michael Bonetto) and/or his firm (Hoge Fenton). My attorney Ioannes has expressed interest in something that Benjamin sent me but neither of us has had time to research the matter in depth.
121105.4. I received two gifts on Monday. There's a screenshot of one of them higher up. I was moved enough that I phoned a few people IRL to show them the message that you'll see at the bottom of the screenshot. This included George and Sandy Kerechanko. George is Grace Kiraly's cousin. Somebody that I looked up to when I was young.
Update: Russell Kerechanko has died. For more information, click here.
When I dialed, somebody picked up the phone. They didn't say anything. After a short period, they hung up. It took me a while to understand this odd occurrence. It was probably the same as with Kenneth Kiraly earlier in 2012. There is no way to be sure. But George and Sandy might have decided not to speak with me. And not even to inform me of this decision.
If so, this is what it means; not to be seen as human. Or even as a living creature, in the same category as dogs and cats, that might have feelings.
121105.5. I left a voicemail message at Opposing Counsel's firm. It's copied in the next section below.^ TOP
Monday 2012-11-05 — Hello, Michael
121105.6. I left the following voicemail message at Hoge Fenton. Important: This copy was transcribed by hand so there may be minor mistakes. However, the wording is believed to be reasonably accurate:
Michael, Hello. This lawful and appropriate message is prompted by a communication I'm told you made to my attorney. It's my understanding that your missive had a threatening tone. I confess I don't follow something.
In your profession you know that the right words can be powerful. But you're also aware they aren't actually magic. Assertions must be true. So let me explain my confusion. I gather you may intend to take false and fraudulent actions, commit perjury, or engage in actual prosecutable crimes to carry out odd threats you've apparently made. What I'd like to know is this. Are you able to spell the word “barratry” ? And do you represent the polite question I've just asked you in response to an apparent threat as perjury?
By the way, it's been explained to me that you'd be uncomfortable addressing me directly due to the usual rules. From my perspective, you may have broken the usual rules already and there is a state agency I'll be discussing this with when time permits. An Executive Secretary who's above the Bar Association level. We'll see what he has to say. But you must proceed as you think best.
I'll add, though, that whatever happens in the short term, I'm doubtful that false and fraudulent actions by you will have a long term effect on your career that is entirely positive.
As a side note, I'm not presently aware that you've expressed reservations regarding the use of your name as a lawful and appropriate Internet domain. That's good. So go to michaelbonetto.com and you'll be able to keep up with things. DMCA doesn't apply by the way.
Naturally I wish everything to be open and above board. So I'll add that the Natasha First Amendment research domain goes up next and of course she's invited to express any reservations.
In closing, my guess is that if you elect to proceed with false and fraudulent actions, you'll go the “frightening volume” route. That's not actually going to work. Everything I'm telling you goes online the night I state it. I'm going to initiate calls to the police, tomorrow I think, to invite them to review.^ TOP
121104.1. Slept from 2:00am to 5:30am Sunday. Daylight Savings Time turned off tonight so this was actually 4.5 hours as opposed to 3.5 hours.
121104.2. Much of Sunday went to finishing 100 pages of material intended for use by my attorney. It broke down into 31 pages for Responses to Demands for Production of Evidence and 69 pages for a supplemental document known as an Exhibit.^ TOP
121103.1. Slept from 10:30pm Friday to 4:00am Saturday.^ TOP
121102.1. Slept from 11:00pm Thursday to 6:15am Friday. AFK 7:10am to 6:25pm Friday. Spent most of the day on a trip to San Jose to meet with my attorney for the Kiraly cases and staff.
My attorney, who I'll call Ioannes, spoke with me regarding dreams he'd had that appeared to be echoes of the future; one from decades ago and one more recently. The context was related to free will and to the nature of decisions. I'd like to write more about the things he said when circumstances permit.
We also spoke about the Kiralys, including incidents that help to illustrate the nature of the relationship between James Kiraly and Grace Kiraly.
121102.2. During one part, Ioannes seemed to confirm that the Kiraly cases are bizarre. I'm starting to wonder if it might be able to bring not only civil but criminal charges against Michael Bonetto, an attorney at Hoge Fenton who I speculate may have misused the CLETS system and who may conceivably have worked with one or more other people to do so as part of an effort that would fall under a generally accepted definition of criminal conspiracy.
It should be noted that it will require time and effort to analyze the activities of Michael Bonetto, James Kiraly, Thomas Kiraly, and Kenneth Kiraly, and that it might be premature to draw final conclusions about their respective roles in the situation at this time.
121102.3. On the way home in the late afternoon, I ate a meal. It was too soon; I'd eaten a couple of days before on Wednesday. Probably best to separate meals more for now. But I passed the buffet I like on the way and wanted to stop there.
I tried to catch up with things in the evening but was too tired because I'd eaten.^ TOP
121101.1. Slept from 2:00am to 7:00am Thursday.
121101.2. I spent much of the day working on a new resume. This was done to help Tactician, who was trying to help me find employment. The resume turned out fairly well. It's on the separate business site at this link.
121101.3. I spoke with two very different women today. Liselle, an artist. And Nancy M., a peer from 35 to 45 years ago. Friend to Twisted Time, Kevin, Akhil, and me. Interesting to compare the two conversations.
Liselle repeated something she'd said before. She volunteered that she didn't notice anything different about me and that she had no difficulty speaking with me. Starlight seemed to feel the same way the other day.
I think Nancy M. may fall into a different cognitive category. This isn't good or bad. And I should note that Nancy M. is important to me. It's not about good or bad or personal feelings in this context. I may be close to defining models that will allow me to talk about all of this. Everything that's happened, after half a century.
I could see into Nancy M.'s mind as she spoke. This is normal for some people who talk to others and remember to focus on them. I didn't do that in the past but I try to do it now.
We talked about Kevin. He broke off contact a few years ago because, I think he said, he found it “too much” to speak with me. The odd part is that this has never quite registered with Nancy M. I didn't understand her perception until relatively recently.
In today's discussion Nancy M. believed that I wasn't listening or responding to what she was saying. It wasn't true. I made the mistake of trying to explain what was happening in the conversation that was taking place. Connected it to the past half century. She said that things were my “fault” and hung up the phone.
I wasn't clear about which things were my “fault” but it doesn't matter too much. The key point is this: If there is ongoing confusion, Nancy M. will feel no concern or uncertainty. This is something that I understand now.
To be clear, I care for Nancy M. Confusion will grieve me. But she will believe that I've made a “choice” that I should take “responsibility” for. Because of this there will be little more for either of us to say.
The perception is connected to something basic. A key part of what it means to be human. Or even to be a mammal. People instantiate humanity differently. But in general we're pattern seekers. We choose patterns by working backwards from conclusions. The patterns become reality. Facts are not a significant part of the picture.^ TOP
121031.1. Slept from 1:30am to 6:00am Wednesday.
I've lost about 60 pounds. That might be considered good except for the fact it wasn't intentional.
Today was Halloween. An occasion that can be fun. I don't recall the last time I did something fun for the occasion. It might have been 30 years ago.
121031.2. I spoke with Starlight, a clerk at a local store. We walked to a nearby restaurant as she went to pick up an order. I told her I may be leaving the area. She seemed regretful about it. It's been nice to talk to talk to her occasionally over the past few years.
121031.3. I wanted to go to the buffet. I'll miss it if I leave the area. But too far away. Needed to focus on legal paperwork. Ate locally instead. This was my first meal since Friday. It's Wednesday night. The food is kicking in. It puts me out cold these days. Semi conscious.
121031.4. Spent most of the day working on a legal document: Responses to Demands for Production. I also took the Kiraly Family Slides to be scanned. They'll go on this site eventually. Should have done that task years ago.^ TOP
Wednesday 2012-10-31: Message for OPC
121031.5. I left the following voicemail message for Michael Bonetto of Hoge Fenton. Also a copy for Natasha Parrett. Parts were transcribed by hand so there may be minor mistakes but this should be reasonably accurate:
Michael, Hello. I should send a copy of this message in printed form and I may do so. But I'm exhausted tonight and I assume you won't mind a verbal version. By the way, I'm logging every syllable in my message and the content will be displayed publicly when time permits; possibly tonight. Any attempt by Natasha to misrepresent this communication as quote threatening tone unquote may lead to the two of you becoming laughing stocks in the end. I mean no offense; it's a simple fact.
First, as a polite note that doesn't need much discussion, I've taken the Internet domains listed in the 120905 document public. Presently they all go to a VPS located overseas. The owner is located in a third country and I'm thinking of hosting there as well, As far as DNS issues go see the 120905 document. By the way, there's a 75 page version planned and I assume you'll want to review it.
I trust that neither you nor your clients object to the domains as you've had nearly two months to comment. And I assume, by the way, you understand that adding a Michael Bonetto Internet domain is lawful and appropriate and that you have no objections to that.
Moving on, there's something I'm researching that I'd like to get your take on. No rush. This was sent to me tonight by somebody who works in Washington and he thought it was relevant.
Apparently the state of California has a group that investigates abuse of the CLETS process independently of the Bar Association. My contact on the East Coast says I can get somebody assigned to me personally who's not part of the system that you're familiar with and that you know how to work.
It looks to me like the document I've been sent may be more about systemic violations of standards and practices than about individual cases. But I've been told that I should talk to the Executive Secretary about the shortcuts you've taken. I wanted to see if you were able to comment on this possibility.^ TOP
121030.1. Slept abruptly from 10:00pm Monday to 6:00am Tuesday. Full eight hours. Sleep may be moving back to normal. But I'm more tired more quickly these days. It's not normal tired. There's still a breathing issue associated with tired that's been part of the issue since the beginning.
121030.2. Lots of people I know, IRL and online, were in the area hit by Hurricane Sandy. They made it through without damage except for power loss.
121030.3. I can take my wheelchair with me. Most transportation companies make allowances for this. But there may not be room for the wheelchair at the places I may go.
121030.4. Metacognician says, regarding the Kiraly cases: “Angering lawyers causes bad things to happen ;)”
The ship has sailed on that
It's regrettable but a fact
Michael Bonetto and Hoge Fenton
Are bent on
Regardless, Michael Bonetto and his friends at Hoge Fenton in San Jose, California are part of things now. Including the book. I'll need to learn more about Michael before I can write about him as a person, though.^ TOP
