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:

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:

Wednesday 2012-12-05 — Kiraly Cases Settlement Clarification

121205. This is an edited version of a letter that I sent to my attorney today. This version is shorter and the wording has been tweaked but the key points have been retained.

Two of my proposed settlement changes may have appeared contradictory. I implied I'd agree not to contact institutions and I also implied I wouldn't agree to this. To clarify things, I'd probably agree not to contact a specific and strictly limited list of institutions for the purposes of “harassment” provided that consensual interaction provided me with safe harbor against “harassment” charges.

In short, if an individual at a listed institution agreed to speak with me on a consensual basis, there wouldn't be a REDACTED thing the Kiralys could do about it. This needs to be spelled out.

I've been doing more reading. It's time to spell out something else.

In the end, the full story is going to come out. Hoge Fenton and the Kiralys may wish to consider what that will mean. I've been a fool at times but I shake my head at the remarkable choices that James Kiraly, Grace Kiraly, Thomas Kiraly, Kenneth Kiraly, and Michael Bonetto have made.

What did these people think would happen when James Kiraly, somebody who was violent in the past and remains obsessive and disturbed, lied to prevent his son from writing a book?

Especially when the lies can and will be documented. And the documentation can and will be provided to advocacy groups throughout the country for years to come.

James Kiraly and Thomas Kiraly, in particular, have no leverage. They are simply hurting Grace Kiraly. But, then, they never truly cared for the wife and mother of their family. Or supported her as Robert, the “good” son and the scapegoat, did for decades.

I've been told that there was no basis for CLETS and that, if I lose Long Cause, it will be due to lawful and appropriate research I conducted subsequent to the filing of false and fraudulent actions. Or to lawful and appropriate voicemail messages that I left at Hoge Fenton; those messages are on my websites and I stand by every word.

The issue, I'm told, is that appearances are what matter. I was supposed to remain silent. But this was something I could not do.

Regardless, is it true that no judge could order the types of broad limits on consensual third party interactions the Kiralys are demanding and make them stick?

Especially when one of the third parties involved, a church, has contacted me and offered me assistance? Additionally, it should be noted that the conflict between the church's goals and the Kiralys' goals will eventually lead to publicity.

I feel the light of publicity may be helpful here.

The church stands for Christ and His perspective. The Kiralys stand for abuse, lies, and hatred of the Constitutive Other. I am, in fact, going to write about the contrast. The Kiralys seek to prevent this. But they have already lost.

Michael Bonetto, I'm addressing you directly. You should have received proposed settlement changes by now. And I trust you see the clarification above. Advise your clients to put aside their fantasies of covering up what they've done.

Let's be clear. Long Cause won't stop the books. There will be no cover-up of emotional and physical abuse, pleadings so close to perjury as to make little difference, violations of standards, abuse of process, and possibly actual prosecutable crimes on the part of you and/or your clients.

As a closing note, you said you'd like to be left out of the “fray”. But you made decisions. As the Kiralys would say, live with the consequences.

You're part of the story now. Regardless of the outcome of Long Cause, I'll expect interviews with you. You may decline. But the project will proceed. The story will be told.
