November 20, 2001 - Email from John Fund to Teranto, James, Miniter, Brendan

The Accusation Morgan Made Up Phony Email Addresses as John

Fund in his deposition claimed the email account,, was never his.  He accused Morgan of making up and using the account.  The fact is Morgan started the account for him in August 2001, at his request, leaving the password unfilled on the computer in their home.  John then put in the password and started the account. Morgan never had access.  

Here below you see Fund refer to the account in an email exchange with James Taranto, asking him to send the copy to him after it is edited at two addresses, his "wjs  address" and this one:  

Here is the article as it appeared the next day.

 Prince of Darkness Sheds Some Light

Bob Novak, a syndicated columnist for 38 years and a fixture on CNN for two decades, looked just a tad uncomfortable receiving the National Press Club's award for lifetime achievement last week.
Bob has seen enough Beltway awards dinners filled with flattery in his time to be leery about being the subject of one. But then the roasting of the man Washington
journalists have dubbed "The Prince of Darkness" began and Bob began to enjoy himself. There's nothing like creating a role for yourself and then having your peers recognize you for being good at it.

But in addition to poking fun at Bob's tough-guy image, the dinner speakers also recognized the talents that have made Bob's "Inside Report" the best shoe-leather "reported" column in America. Bob may have passed his 70th birthday, but he outworks most journalists two generations younger than he is. I should know. I became the first reporter that Bob and his late partner Rowland Evans ever hired back in 1982, and both of them always outdid me both in savvy AND stamina.
 The roasters -- Jack Germond of the Baltimore Sun, Fred Barnes of the New Republic and Mark Shields of PBS -- poked gentle fun at Novakian foibles, especially his passion for following basketball teams on the road and then finding a convenient political story in whatever city he was in. They also
effectively lampooned the writing style he and Rowly Evans perfected -- an insider argot that constantly referred to "secret memos" and "little-noticed meetings" took on major policy and political significance.
 An hilarious sendup of a "lost" Bob Novak column prepared for the Press
Club dinner can be found at the Weekly Standard's website (subscription required)
Mark Shields joked that Novak really wasn't as important as he thought he
was in Washington: "After all tonight's Press Club banquet room is the only one in town without a metal detector." As he said that, I looked around and noted that while the room was filled with interesting people, no elected officials or cabinet officers were in evidence. In part that was because Congress had already cleared out of town for the weekend and the war was no doubt occupying Bush officials, but the observation nonetheless held. Bob is a fine journalist, but
not one to cozy up too close to politicans, the stray exception such as Jack Kemp not withstanding. Bob isn't a Republican, he's a tough reporter who does his
own roasting of people on both sides of the aisle.

 But he's also of an old school that recognizes how blessed he has been to
have had a chance to have a career in which he can tell people what he thinks. When Bob stood up to give his response to the "roasters," he thanked his family and the people who took a chance on him during his career. He also took time to recognize the print and TV outlets that paid his bills -- "I know who I work for, and it isn't the government."

Bob finished up by having some fun at the expense of the many sources for his column who were in the audience. He noted that he had learned one important thing in his 43 years in Washington: "There are two kinds of people in this town. Sources...and targets, and you better make up your mind which you are." But in reality there is a third kind of person: readers and viewers. There remain more than enough of those, both in Washington and all over the country, who appreciate Bob Novak to keep him a valuable political tip-sheet and provocative influence on American journalism for years to come.

Present: Todd Porter, counsel for Melinda Pillsbury-Foster, Jacqueline Misho, counsel for Craig Franklin.
From page 10 of the document:
“THE WITNESS: Let me read the title of it, please.
I am producing a document entitled “Green Hills Software., 1996, Employment Agreement Stock-Option Plan, and Stockholders Agreement.” There are 15 pages to the agreement, and three pages appended to it, one page of which is the stock-option exercise form, and two pages of which are entitled, “Certificate.”
Q. What you produced – does it include a copy of your signature which you just provided to me and I will have marked as Respondent's 5?
(Respondent's Exhibit No. 5 was marked for identification, a copy which is attached hereto.)
THE WITNESS: There is no signature on the document that I produced.
Q. Did you produce a copy of the document which contains your signature?
A. No, I did not.
Q. Am I going to get a copy of that today?
MS. MISHO: We don't have that document. If you read the trial transcripts and the depo transcripts you would know that we are not in possession of that document. We never have been.
MR. PORTER: Have you made any attempts to retrieve that document?
MS. MISHO: Do you mean as in a thorough search and enquiry with respect to all of the things in his possession and in the possession of his attorneys, accountant, employees and agents?
MR. PORTER: Including Green Hills Software, the company that he is the vice president of.
MS. MISHO: That's not his employee, his attorney, his agent or his accountant.
Q. Mr. Franklin, did you keep a copy of the document which you signed? In other words, the page that you signed? Did you keep a copy of that?
MR. PORTER: The page of this 9 –when he signed the stock-option agreement in 1996, the one referred to in Mr. Speich's memorandum, I'm asking whether or not he kept a copy of what he signed.
THE WITNESS: By “a copy,” do you mean a Xerox copy?
Q. Yes, a Xerox copy or a photocopy.
A. No.
Q. Who did you hand that agreement to?
A. My best recollection is that I handed it to Dan O'Dowd.
Q. Do you recall when you handed it to Dan O'Dowd, approximately?
A. Not at this moment.
Q. What is your best memory of what was contained – strike that.
You drafted the amendment?
A. I did.
Q. Did you draft it on a home computer?
A. I drafted it on a computer at Green Hills Software.
Q. Okay. Do you have a copy of that amendment?
A. I have just testified the answer to that question.
Q. No, I don't think that you did. I think I asked you whether or not you had kept a photocopy of your signature page.
My question to you now is whether or not you have a copy of the amendment that you prepared?
A. I don't know.
(There follows a long and tiresome attempt to avoid producing the draft revision of the Stock-Option Agreement written by Craig Franklin. Eventually Franklin says,)
THE WITNESS: The Amendment, to the best of my recollection, dealt with the issue of how to arrive – excuse me – of describing a process, or a formula, for computing a number of stock options that I would eventually be allowed to exercise. And the – this is as I understand it –other employees were going to be subject to a formula that said take your annual salary –let's say $70,000 a year. All right, you get 70,000 shares. They vest over a period of time, according to certain rules and so on, and the option exercise price is a dollar.
I thought my long years of service to the company should be taken into account, so the amendment had one section or paragraph or sentence that used the same formulas as other people's – take my annual salary, and so on – and then it has another section which said that my previous years of service would be taken into account somehow.
I mean, I don't remember the exact wording, but my intention there was that – that they be taken into the – into account. This is in effect a proposal from me to Green Hills. That's pretty much all I remember.”

2001 – February 22nd – Transcript from Deposition of MORGAN PILLSBURY, taken Santa Barbara, CA by Consolidated Reporters Network. 50 pages. (excerpt from page 30 of document.)
“A Well, when we started talking again I told her everything. I told her about what Craig had done, how he lied to protect stock during the divorce, how he changed the stock options around. And I don't think she believed me, so I made a recording of it.
Q And the reason you made a recording of it is because your mother would not believe you because of lies you told in the past?
A Uh-huh.
Q What lies had you told in the past?
A Too many to name.”

Fraudulent Loan Agreement written by Jacqueline Misho and signed under duress by Morgan Pillsbury

Morgan was always credulous about those who had previously been ready sources of money.  Although she knew, because she participated in the conspiracy against her mother, Melinda Pillsbury-Foster, Craig had no scruples, felt no gratitude, and otherwise exhibited psychopathic characteristics, she did not realize this because she operated on the same characteristics but was far less intelligent and calculating than Craig or the other psychopathic individuals he attracted.  

Craig is a highly intelligent psychopath, one of the 20,000 such individuals active within the US at any time. 

Craig's relations with women always took a particular form.  First, he enticed and romanced them.  Then, when they were emotionally and financially dependent on him he destroyed them.  

This fraudulent loan agreement was one of the steps Craig took in the belief it would succeed.  It did not because Morgan asked her mother, Melinda Pillsbury-Foster for help.  Melinda believed Morgan's  lies as to her previous actions because she is emotionally normal and believes all people are capable of redemption.  Lacking the attributes of compassion, conscience, the ability to love, Morgan only used a semblance of these neurologically based attributes to get what she wanted.  

No loan had ever been made.  It was a straight-forward employment agreement to act for Craig Franklin the slandering of the wife he wanted to destroy.  Morgan provided slander, told to Melinda's friends, manipulated her other siblings to alienate them from the mother they loved, and took all other actions asked for by Craig.  

He pointed out to Morgan this had to appear as a 'gift' because she was carrying out criminal actions, felonies.  Craig had the same kind of agreement with Dan O'Dowd of Green Hills Software, Inc (GHS) for the take-over of the company and with those Craig had persuaded at the company to cooperate, for compensation, with this conspiracy.  

The conspiracy was intended to bring Melinda's death, either directly or through the physical stress caused and the death of their son, Arthur Foster.

January 14, 2003 - Newt Gingrich Demonstrates his absolute Confidence in the guy who stole the Idea for Contract On America for him, John Fund.

What relationship?  Blumenthal took all possible advantage of Morgan's trust, refused to carry though on getting her an attorney to sue Fund to get compensation for the outrages visited on her and on her mother. 

But what else could you expect from a Newt?
