Until some weeks ago, back in October, I had never heard of Courtland Grojean (Yes, the same one MBV spoke about in one of his Tuesday posts. His info was originally mine, and I didn’t find out till Tuesday evening that MBV had been given it by a mutual friend.) The only reason I found out then, was due to finding out that I was under investigation as a Law Enforcement Officer (yes, I work in LE, it is not mentioned out of deference to my family’s safety, and it has no bearing on what I teach in my business, or write about on the blog). Apparently, someone named Courtland Grojean made an allegation/inquiry to the AG’s office (no, we’re not discussing what state I work in, what agency I work for, or what assignments I’ve had and have now, that’s a no-no, and I won’t acknowledge or verify any questions or “facts” that any of you entertain as comments. Besides, does that even matter?) about JC Dodge. This is someone they said worked for the AG’s state, and worked in a specific LE department. The allegation/inquiry consisted of Courtland Grojean saying that he was doing an “expose” for the Citizen Journalist of LEO’s who were involved with Neo Nazi and Anti Gov groups, and that he had found evidence that JC Dodge was a LEO in the AG’s state, had a Neo Nazi and Anti Gov website, and was conducting paramilitary training.
Huh, imagine that. Some asshat wants to get me disciplined or fired because they have some beef with me, and use the coverall terms “Neo Nazi”, “Anti Gov”, “Paramilitary” to get an investigation started (yes, an AG has to investigate allegations like that, they simply don’t have any option in that regard.) So I get interviewed, and when I told them I was expecting something like this, I was asked why I thought anyone would make a specious allegation such as that. I said I didn’t have proof, but that a guy named Christian Hyman/Kerodin (whatever it really is) was the type to do something like that, simply because he’s a petty, malicious, wanna be of a little man and has a beef with anyone that’s in LE or .Mil, or .Gov, in general, and me specifically and that if they look at his writing, they would not only see that, but they’d see they things he’s said about me.
So time goes by in the investigation (it was apparently started sometime in the beginning of October). I do some research on my own, and low and behold, guess what I found out? I find out that Courtland Grojean was a fictional character in a Mack Bolan type series called “The Death Merchant”. Read the description below of the hero “Richard J Camellion” and tell me who that sounds like when they describe themselves.
I start digging deeper, and I find the screenshot below. Note in the bottom left hand corner of the screenshot that there is a tag that says “mailtoGrojean@CourtlandGrojean.com”
So that’s what I punch into Google, and this was what I found.
I then went to this Whois-DomainTools address , and here’s what I found. See anything familiar in the email bar?
Yup, that’s what it says, email@example.com. Further investigation revealed this.
Wait a minute, does that say they (Yup, it’s Holly and Christian Kerodin of III Percent Patriots fame) have 57 domains? Surely we won’t recognize any of them, right? They are in order with a small amount of overlap to show continuity.
Here is a screenshot from what comes up when you click on the domain name courtlandgrojean.com
Yup, courtlandgrojean.com is registered to firstname.lastname@example.org. You want to know who Courtland Grojean of the Citizen Journalist is. Below is pictured Courtland Grojean of the Citizen Journalist.
So why did they (and it is a “THEY” now, there is no ambiguity as to who is involved) try to get me disciplined or fired? It’s simple. I’m a threat to their validity. I was on the IIIPSFA Board, and know everything that went on there. Although all I’ve said publicly in comments was that I know nothing about theft or any missing money, and that a number of us left at the same time due to concern over the direction Kerodin was taking the Society and a feeling of him not being straight with us. Apparently that’s a reason to try and get me disciplined or fired at my full time job, using the legal/administrative mechanism he always speaks of despising soooo much, because he knew they could not blow it off, and they had to investigate the inquiry/allegation. Sounds like the crap he pulled with Mark Firestone a while back, doesn’t it. It even sounds similar to what he was convicted of extortion for when he went to malls demanding money for his “services” or he’d put their “lack of readiness”, on the security end of things, out to the public. Any other reason. Well sure there is. While not mentioning him by name in my posts, I have said his idea of what a “commando” is, and the fact that he would title his little “school” the “Jedburgh Academy” is a slap in the face to those who earned and made history under that very title. I have also posted things written by my friend SFC Steve Barry, where he gave his valid and experienced “two cents” concerning the “III JedburghCommandoOfficer” BS.
Key points in the post here,
“Hit them wherever they show themselves vulnerable. Play as dirty as your conscience will permit. Undermine them, sabotage them, and discredit them.”
That’s THEIR M.O..
I guess THEY believe that if they get me fired or disciplined at work that I will shut up about his BS “bad boy” claims, his “Stolen valoresque” Jedburgh crap, and discredit anything I might say in the future about the IIIPSFA Board interactions. Ain’t gonna happen! I’ve been quiet up till now about details of the IIIPSFA Board “goings on” but I’m not so sure that I should have been. Two other Board members and I left (we decided to leave the Board instead of pushing him out of the Presidents position.
Kerodin claimed he pushed me out, but actually couldn’t “orchestrate” a 5 year old’s “Chuck E Cheese” birthday party, let alone my “navigation towards the door”) together under the agreement that we would not say anything about Board business or the problems we had with Kerodin, as long as he didn’t start anything with us. That agreement clearly has been violated, but I haven’t decided if I even want to bother giving people info when they clearly will make every excuse in the book for him even when verifiable facts are presented. BTW, I guess by “Unconscionable” he meant the fact that I spoke up when he tried to bully the Board and especially the CoB with BS behind the scenes games.
Back to being investigated for having a Neo Nazi, Anti Gov (that’s hilarious, when you realize the accusation/inquiry came from him) website, I wrote something here about my friendships, and how associating and assigning me the beliefs and convictions of my friends is complete nonsense. During the investigation I advised that Kerodin had made an insinuation that I was a racist, due to my friendship with SFC Steve Barry. Apparently, a friendship with someone is not a crime, thankfully.
Kerodin has tried to insinuate here, that due to my friendship with Barry, I am exactly like him. We are not exactly alike, but by God, Barry is my friend and has been for 18 years, due to mutual respect and a similar background. An ExCon, “commando wanna be” trying to insinuate what’s said above being facts (me being a racist), and at the same time, no one is seeing the hypocrisy of the screenshot he wrote above, and the one he wrote below this paragraph, especially when it’s all coming from an ExCon, (which is a “Non starter” for a lot of people in the friendship department), kinda makes me wonder how foolish and delusional are those that claim “III” status, and identify with Kerodin.
So there it is. Read over it, click on the links, talk among yourselves as to what you will tolerate in someone claiming to be one thing, but constantly proving he’s another. I have tried to include all the links and screenshots I could think to make the case. They are not “III”, they are “0”, and anyone who would associate with them should be suspect as well, simply because they have no reason not to have learned the FACTS about them by now.. Kerodin has said and done some good things over the years, but even though a broken analog watch is right twice a day, that doesn’t mean you don’t fix or replace it. This isn’t about your friendship with Kerodin. It’s about people who try to destroy the livelihood of a guy who is trying to help others prepare for the worst. I have pointed out a few times on my blog what I believe are “Thugs” in the LE community. I hate thugs, no matter if they are mob enforcers, gangbangers, bad cops, or corrupt judges and politicians. You people cry out for LE to step up and “Do the right thing” by speaking out about the problems within the LE community, and then, when I do, some asshat with a personal beef not only “outs” the fact that I am in LE (he knew from personal conversations, and he also knew I kept it low key for my family’s sake), but then says this in a comment here,
I tell you what, why don’t you guys figure out what the Hell you want out of those in LE who actually give a Damn about calling out those within their ranks who are thugs. Damned if you do Damned if you don’t, right? If I don’t say anything, I’m condoning it, if I do say something, an ExCon says I’ve betray my “Brothers in Blue”.
My LE employment has nothing to do with my business or my blog, yet they went after that because any ExCon knows an investigation has to be done after those types of allegations/inquiries are made. I was very fortunate that the investigation was fair, and not a “Witch Hunt” (as Courtland Grojean Kerodin probably hoped it would be). I was cleared of any wrongdoing or “Conduct unbecoming”, because, at the end of the day, my facts trumped their allegations.
