It won’t be long now…
Soon we’ll get to see the President of the National Council Against Health Fraud (NCAHF) crying his eyes out in a courtroom again. Whimpering, and stuttering, his way through “expert testimony” (I have a video tape) last October 2002 in Wisconsin, Robert S.Baratz MD, DDS. PhD., broke into crocodile tears, snuffling out “I was a paper boy at eight and a half years old. Then I was a boy scout (sniff, sniff). Then I got the order of the arrow (snuffle, snort),” Baratz did everything but wet his pants when confronted about his expertise, and his credibility.
Baratz, who can’t seem to hold a job, has been trying to make a living as an “expert witness.” Most days he runs a hair removal salon. His testifying skills are pathetic, and he’s been hammered in court. He rambled on so badly, and so pointlessly, for so many days, in the Wisconsin (Kadile) case that the Judge refused to let him continue oral testimony, and sent him home to WRITE DOWN his testimony.
Honest to God. Go ahead and laugh… No wonder he can’t hold a job.
It Gets Funnier…
About a week ago, finally, Baratz submitted 187 pages of written testimony. He took SEVEN MONTHS to write 187 pages of double spaced “testimony.” Last January, Wisconsin DORL prosecutor Arthur Thexton had to fly to Massachusetts to help Baratz construct his testimony. From 7:00 am until 7:00 pm, in Baratz’s attic, Thexton “interviewed” Baratz, in the presence of a court reporter. Baratz was so bad at answering the questions that Thexton kept ordering the court reporter to “strike that” and would then tell Baratz the answer he wanted to hear. Can you imagine how many “revisions” the Baratz/Thexton dynamic duo did of that 187 pages between January and July? Testimony?
The court reporter was so appalled at this handling of “testimony” that she wouldn’t certify the document. You can bet the court reporter is being subpoenaed…
The attorney for Kadile in the Wisconsin case, Frank Recker, is prepared. He’s had the use of a Private Investigator, expert researchers, competent Doctors and Scientists, other attorneys who have defeated Baratz, other cases and depositions, mental health professionals, and MY files. On July 14th, 15th, and 16th, little Bobbie gets cross-examined ONLY on his credibility. Believe me, his mental health will be an issue.
Baratz is dead meat. Law enforcement will be in the audience, Fraud and Perjury will be in the air. And I, Tim Bolen, and our strategy team, will be sitting right next to Frank Recker, handing him notes.
If this were a screenplay, I’d be inserting the ratcheting sound of stainless-steel handcuffs, right about now. We’ll be making a video tape – and the public is welcome. There will be a lot of people there to see this, including TV.
Bobbie Will Try Tricks…
A couple years back, in a Florida courthouse, little Bobbie, just before it was his turn to testify, went down to the sheriff’s station and complained that he was “terrified for his life.” He got a cordon of seven sheriff’s deputies to accompany him to the courtroom, where they then questioned members of the audience. The audience was amused. Baratz was particularly interested in getting me, Tim Bolen, out of the building, since I was there to advise the attorney on Baratz and his games. It didn’t work – I stayed. So did the audience.
Six minutes into Bobbie’s cross-examination he began to twitch. Ten minutes into it, he was fidgeting. Thirteen minutes into it, and he changed colors rapidly. At fifteen minutes, his pores erupted. And, at eighteen minutes he fled the room.
I guess Bobbie was uncomfortable with the questions I provided the attorney.
Wisconsin is going to be fun. There’s going to be three days of Bobbie on the stand, answering questions about his credibility on video tape.
I’d say there’s a 50/50 chance Bobbie will run… That’s the way quackbusters are. And, Bobbie is the best they have…
