Dennis Montgomery near death?

An unattributed article at WorldNetDaily this week cites Larry Klayman as saying that Dennis Montgomery is in poor health, and should be deposed before it is too late. Deposed about what, you ask? About the alleged scam he ran on the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office? No, rather about Montgomery’s purported knowledge of NSA surveillance of the US Supreme Court. Klayman wants the court to question Dennis Montgomery in secret, saying according to WND:

The witness, Dennis Montgomery, can testify “about the unconstitutional and illegal surveillance conducted by the National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency that is highly relevant and of crucial important … as he worked closely with these agencies following the tragedy of Sept. 11, 2001,” said Klayman.

Montgomery’s poor health adds to the urgency that his testimony be taken now, Klayman has said

Klayman points to Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Ginsberg as surveillance targets that Montgomery could testify to. (Maybe he found this in bar codes in the noise of Al Jazeera TV signals.) Klayman raises the question of whether Roberts is being blackmailed by the Obama Administration.

Klayman sued the president and won a court order that the NSA stop spying on him personally (read more on Klayman v Obama). This motion is part of that that legal proceeding.

    Maybe Mr, Montgomery realized the US doesn’t have an extradition treaty with The Great Beyond.

    It is not clear whether Montgomery is trying to scam Klayman, or if Klayman is running on his own imagination.

    I would bet that the unattributed source is KKKlayman to start with. I’m not sure that I would trust anything either of them said beginning end. KKKlayman has quite a track record for being loose with reality, and we know that Montgomery is a con artist…so… I can’t imagine anything that Montgomery could possibly have that would be even remotely relevant. He was scamming the CIA, not NSA, and I seriously doubt they would have let him near anything that was remotely related to what he is claiming, since it wasn’t within the parameters of his scam, so he should have nothing to tell. This is just more grandstanding by KKKlayman. I suspect it is a case of Montgomery scamming KKKlayman and KKKlaman using him to further his own agenda. Two scammers in search of a pay day.

    In a tangentially-related story, Birther Sheriff Mack says that Justice Ginsberg is senile.

    Dr. C,
    “An unattributed article at WorldNetDaily this week…”

    Klayman has written articles for WND. Lord Monckton has written articles for WND. It would be fitting if we learned that Montgomery penned this piece. At least WND would be consistent.

    That’s an interesting suggestion, and it prompted me to try to come up with something more than just speculation. That led to my research on stylometry and the article I just wrote on “Dreams from My Father.”

    When I turned to applying stylometry to the WND article, I realized that in order to get meaningful results, I would have to remove all direct quotes by Klayman from the article and when I did that, there wasn’t much left to work with.

    What we can say for sure, by direct attribution, is that Klayman wrote most of the article.

    Notorial Dissent: I would bet that the unattributed source is KKKlayman to start with.

    Klayman points to Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Ginsberg as surveillance targets

    Nothing more than another factoid for the right-wing bubble to keep up the meme that Roberts was somehow “coerced” into declaring Obamacare constitutional.

    Whereas logic would dictate that an NSA attempting to coerce SCOTUS into Obama-admin-friendy rulings would have *all* conservative justices as surveillance targets (who knows if it isn’t Scalia or Alito or Thomas who have the worst skeletons in their closet?).

    Mentioning Ginsberg (probably the most liberal SCOTUS judge) is just boilerplate to distract from the actual propaganda story.

    So in short, just more from the hatriot faction that seditiously tries to undermine the authority of the republican institutions (first Congress, now SCOTUS).

    I’d place a bet that Montgomery is scamming Klayman. Having learned that Arpaio is willing to pay out large sums of money he probably thought hey birthers make easy marks.

    There are several “recommended/related” articles with “NSA Slayer” in the titles. I clicked on 4 or 5 of them, and all had a Bob Unruh bylines.

    Still speculative, but a _little_ better than a mere guess if you care enough to pursue it (I don’t: I’d rather rub a few birfoon noses in Montgomery’s history).

    Agreed. If past experience shows anything it is that Klayman is both very gullible and will do anything no matter how insane or stupid to get a bit more attention.

    The man is a chancre on the legal system.

    And birthers to wait 20 to 30 years for Montgomery to “spill the beans” because “he’s got nothing to lose now”.

    Thanks to the Phoenix New Times, we know a little more about this, and I see Curious George already posted the link.

    Larry Klayman is representing Dennis Montgomery (now residing in Florida) in a $470 million lawsuit for defamation against author James Risen and his publisher, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. In court filings, we learn a little more about Montgomery’s medical condition:

    letters from Seattle doctors stating that Montgomery underwent aneurysm surgery on May 16, 2014, complicated by multiple strokes that left him with impaired vision and weakness on one side of his body.

    These letters state that Montgomery was in rehab until late June 2014 and so was not able to “testify out of state.”

    Dr. C,
    “These letters state that Montgomery was in rehab until late June 2014 and so was not able to “testify out of state.””

    His condition kind of puts a crimp in any effort by the CCCP to release “Universe Shattering” news.

    If a big-time scammer claims health concerns prevent him from testifying in court, shouldn’t we believe him WITHOUT QUESTIONING THE TIMING OF HIS PROFESSED MALADY? I think Montgomery deserves the benefit of all the doubt we can muster.

    And, thanks to Dennis Montgomery (via Gerbil Report), we now know that the New Times has a “pornographer” on staff. 😉

    Klayman has filed a motion on behalf of Montgomery to intervene in the contempt proceedings, demanding Snow’s recusal.

    Last I looked, Montgomery isn’t a party in the contempt case so how the heck does KKKLayman the most ‘inappropriate’ lawyer in the land feel he has grounds to demand then judge recuse himself…….?

    RanTalbott May 8, 2015 at 3:03 am #

    Montgomery claims IP and/or trade secret rights to some of what Snow demanded that Arpaio cough up. Also possible violations of attorney-client privilege (although it seems to me that that privilege was waived when he shared it with Arpaio).

    And that he was “defamed” during the hearing.

    And that Arpaio’s investigation means that Snow now has a personal interest in the case.

    And that the New Times people are a bunch of radical left-wing foo-foo-heads.

    As of right now, Montgomery is not under Judge Snow’s jurisdiction. If he allows Montgomery to become a party, doesn’t that put Montgomery at risk?

    They kind of are. Have you seen the New Times? It has permanent sections advertising pot shops and adult oriented businesses. While the quality of journalism is often excellent, the paper on the whole is easily dismissed. I wouldn’t take a New Times restaurant review at face value, and I would verify a concert listing before planning to go to the venue. That said, these articles on Arpaio have been outstanding.

    PNT has a new article by Lemons with more details about the Montgomery “connection”. It seems that the Arpaio’s pet Arizona Attorney General (at the time – not any longer thank goodness), Tom Horne, met with Montgomery and gave him ‘a “free talk” letter by the agency, a free talk being a conversation with a prosecutor, wherein the prosecutor is limited in how that information can be used.

    Tom Horne is, in general, a nasty piece of work, by the way.
