This link was sent as a comment to the Jeb Bush post: "Along the way, he heard folks talking about the III Percent movement as being the 'armed' wing of the Tea Party movement. He found Mike Vanderboegh of Sipsey Street Irregulars and acted like a fan and supporter. Once he learned the language and folks learned a little about him, he made the big split and went off on his own ventures. We’ve talked about the dozens of ventures he started. While many of them helped fund his lifestyle (and not that fancy a life style, by all accounts), the goal was to get as many folks in the III movement to associate the III brand with the Kerodin brand. Instead of having to attract someone with a general belief in the III movement, he made 'boutique' sub-groups to attract as many folks as he could. . ."
George Patton is amazingly prescient. From what I hear from other sources Kerodin's already made the switch to "Courtland Grojean." For those of you unfamiliar with the old Joseph Rupert Rosenberger b-novel series, The Death Merchant, the protagonist was one Richard Joseph Camellion. Wikipedia describes him thusly:"Perhaps a new batch of followers who aren’t familiar with his past will get him the power and respect that he believes he so rightly deserves. It’s up to those of us who have figured him out to make sure that potential new followers learn the truth before they get hurt, after that the decision is up to them. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see another name change in the near future."
The Death Merchant is the title and lead character of a series of men's action-adventure books written by Joseph Rupert Rosenberger and published by Pinnacle Books from 1971 to 1988. Richard Joseph Camellion, as described in the books, is a master of disguise, the martial arts and wet-work. Cynical and lethal in equal measure, his normal employer was the CIA - at a cost of $100,000 tax-free bucks a mission.He is described on the back of the books as "Richard Camellion, master of death, destruction, and disguise. He gets the dirty jobs, the impossible missions, the operations that cannot be handled by the FBI, CIA, or any other legal or extra-legal force. He is a man without a face, without a single identifying characteristic...except that he succeeds by being a Merchant of Death!"
Of course, every deadly secret agent needs an omnipotent and omniscient handler and Camellion's CIA contact and overseer is named Courtland Grojean, nicknamed "The Fox."
Melodramatic stuff and just the sort of nom d'merde that convicted con man Kerodin would like to imagine that he sees in the mirror when he gets up every morning. I am told that the "citizen journalist Courtland Grojean" in the link above and Christian Hyman, aka "Christian Kerodin," aka "Sam Kerodin" are one and the same. Although, as one correspondent told me, "Sam's more likely to be the handled than the handler. If anything, he's the puppet not the puppetmaster. He just likes to pretend he's in control." Delusions of grandeur indeed. And pretending that he's a "citizen journalist" in the bargain. What a pathetic maroon.
