John List Gone But Diamond Dealer Surfaced From Larry Ray Trial Amid Censorship & Stigma & SLAPP

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY / NYC, March 26 -- Like a moth to a flame, a blogger to a take-down of a powerful hypocrite - but suddenly Kurt doubted, this could be different from the United Nations.

  The UN threw him out, then did its best to ignore him. In Power New York, people sued and tried to silence their critics or exposers. But wasn't there a New York anti-SLAPP law? Kurt jotted down he need to look into it.

  And still the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press had not responded. Two tiers everywhere - in which Johns were outed and which were protected, in which media got the protection, and which was left out in the cold.

   Beyond the requests and threats to take John List down, even as it was clear that they patronized a young woman who was being chained up and suffocated by a mad man, Larry Ray, there was a push from another side. A self-described high-class hooker wrote in to say that the Johns shouldn't be stigmatized. It made Kurt pause.

  Could they not have known that Claudia Drury was being tortured? Randy Levinson, given immunity, recalled thinking he would get a good deal, since Claudia was so in need of money. Is exploitation a sin? Is it a crime?

   Levinson was given immunity - but was it for the structuring of his payments to defeat the Suspicious Activities Report system, or because of the crime of being a John? Was that a Federal crime?

 Could the SDNY prosecutors offer any assurance that local authorities wouldn't prosecute this local crime? In New York City, they wouldn't. And so the hedge funder had his name on a children's museum. Another was described as a diplomat inspired by the current president, wanting rapprochement with China. But first, #JohnListGone, a diamond dealer, on Patreon here

[It, like a song about Lev Parnas was also covered, behind a paywall, by New York Magazine which had this to say about Inner City Press' covered in late 2021 of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, book here via one of the companies with an executive on the John list.]

 When Inner City Press for investigative reporting was roughed up and thrown out onto First Avenue from covering the United Nations of/by UNSG Antonio Guterres, many did nothing. But as we've previously noted, the First Amendment stops at First Avenue. We'll have more on this, here and on other platforms.
