Private: I’ve set this document not to share on my social media platforms. So, before I ask you to do one thing as soon as you’re able, please know this: there is nothing in me or in my love for Christine that has grown and matured these past 7 years, that would ever let me put my wants or needs ahead of her well-being. To do so given Chris’ very specific vulnerabilities, would be sin of the worst kind. So please do this no matter what you think of what I ask you to do or what you may now think of me. The Army writes that these men and women are elite warriors who “use their skills to change attitudes, behaviors, values, beliefs, and influence foreign audiences.” The Army’s not just talking big. One reason these folks excel in human manipulation is the detailed instruction they get in step 5 from Chapter 5 in an Army field manual that I can supply you, should you want it. I’ve placed step 5 ahead of everything else that I’ve prepared for you in this document. And I’ve also attached to this email the same pages. Read step 5. Please. That’s all I ask from you.








I’ve prepared this document to answer questions that you’ve rightly asked in the past and which I hope you’ll have reason to let me answer in the future. With this introduction, I affirm my continuing desire and intent to commit my skill set, my experience, and my energy to producing and effectively disseminating to the relevant policy communities top-shelf research products. Practical, realistic answers to questions that frequently stand in the way of sensible policy choices.

Going forward, I commit to renewing my commitment to pursuing and acquiring peaceful relationships with policy adversaries and to pursuing, where possible and sensible, project partnerships with those whose policy interests, relationships, and approach are compatible with those of CRP.

Working with, instead of against, adversaries is far from a new idea for me. There’s a saying in politics that “countries don’t have friends. They have interests.” I believe “they” are right about this and that it’s true of individuals and organizations as well. A number of my emails from the last 12 months begin with my trying to establish that kind of mutually beneficial relationship with those who disagree with me on this or that issue.

Securing this kind of relationship with those who think and believe differently, is not an academic matter. My commitment to remain in Tucson after mom moves to Santa Barbara early next year has not changed. And it won’t change, even if Christine and I can’t put the pieces back together and marry, as we had planned.

Like many “third culture kids” I’ve always found it hard, if not impossible, to find any place that can deliver the “feeling of home” that I subconsciously think everyone else has. Besides, two of my degrees are from UA, and there’s no state I have more ties with than this one.

What comes next is an overview of the open-source research shop that I’ve been trying to get funded. The balance of this document consists of three sections and a truncated digital bio.

Section 1 – a sample of emails from the last 12 – 14 months, reflecting multiple attempts to calm the natives and secure the funding necessary to work full-time on projects that will benefit past and present military personnel and their families;

Section 2 – two examples of ongoing smear campaign tactics that undermine potential funders’ perceived viability of the research initiative; and

Section 3 – an overview of my current thinking about a suitable path forward if I’m to (1) recover my reputation for producing high-quality, ethical, and effective work; and (2) secure full funding for CRP and the freedom that CRP will need if it’s to thrive.

Overview of combatresearchandprose, a planned open-source applied research initiative 

Combat research and prose (CRP) is an Arizona-based sole proprietorship at the present. But the merits of incorporating and securing 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status are being examined.

CRP principal researcher is Charles L. K. Bloeser, M.A., J.D., a researcher whose published and still cited works begin in 1992. He’s licensed to practice law by the Supreme Court of Tennessee, U.S.A. After first serving as an assistant district attorney in the State of Oklahoma, his career in the courts has been spent in criminal trial, appeal, and post-conviction cases in state and federal trial and appellate courts, including certiorari practice before the Supreme Court of the United States.

Support staff isn’t needed at this stage, and it’s anticipated that collaborations with other researchers can be secured on a volunteer or independent contractor basis. Combat research and prose will not engage in the provision of direct services.

“Combat Translation Project”

“Combat Translation Project”: ongoing multi-product “research +” activity in support of bridging – among members of relevant policy crowds – an existing chasm in experience, knowledge, and understanding which divides the 93% of persons who’ve never served in the Armed Forces from the seven percent who have (U.S. data).

Objective: provide to members of the national security/defense /veterans policy crowds top-shelf research products that assist their efforts to make informed and intelligent decisions on matters that affect those who’ve served in the United States military as well as in the military services of U.S. allies, and these service members’ families.

Here are three examples of “combat translation” products:

It does so through the life and service of fallen “Delta Force” special operator Josh Wheeler, a Cherokee Indian from Sequoyah County, Oklahoma, who enlisted in the U.S. Army one month after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Two hours west of where U.S. Army Master Sergeant Joshua L. Wheeler was born and raised.

2 components – new research article and proposed model legislative language 

Child welfare services across the United States remove children from their homes after state authorities conclude that one or more children is in immediate danger of harm. “Harm” is generally defined as abuse or neglect. A recent report from the National Conference of State Legislatures reports that “just over 415,000 children and youth in the U.S. currently reside in foster care.”

Child welfare workers are not generally required to place children from military families with military foster families.

While, generally speaking, child welfare agencies prefer to place children with suitable family members nearby, that’s seldom possible when children are removed from military families stationed far from home.

Researcher has just completed a substantive new research product that examines challenges and successes of foster kids who enter military service, as well as the threats to keeping military families together, especially during and after deployments.

Pursuant to recent discussions with legislative experts who’ve repeatedly demonstrated success in getting the states to adopt proposed model legislation, researcher is now drafting for their consideration proposed state and federal legislative language intended to keep military children clothed, fed, sheltered, and safe while increasing the likelihood that state child welfare authorities and the courts will reunite military children with their past and present service member parents.

Researcher’s role as a participant in America’s “foster-child system”

The author’s responsibilities in criminal and civil matters while serving as an assistant district attorney for the State of Oklahoma were, among others:

(a) reviewing child welfare reports to determine which warranted applications for judicial child removal orders and possible criminal prosecution;

(b) representing the State’s interests in civil “deprived child” actions arising from these cases, as well as in civil cases alleging actions by minors that, if done by an adult, would be criminal offenses and subject to prosecution;

(c) learning whether a crime committed against or by a child occurred on land and under circumstances that authorized the State of Oklahoma to act (the judicial district I served is a patchwork of jurisdictions that include a number of Indian tribes and in which the land that the State couldn’t touch might be no bigger than the lot where the crimes occurred);

(d) primary assistant D.A. on call to respond to ER, courthouse, or other locations in order to seek, if necessary, order from the judge authorizing the emergency commitment of persons deemed danger to self or others, an order which, in the absence of suitable family, resulted in kids going into foster care;

(e) took turns with other assistant D.A.’s on call to respond to scenes of suicide and other deaths when requested by law enforcement;

(f) on occasion, participating in case conferencing with other relevant actors re children placed in the custody of child services and perhaps housed in foster homes; and

(g) serving as the District Attorney’s representative at some of the informal foster parent gatherings held in that judicial district.

(a) criminal defendants, appellants, and petitioners who had been removed from their homes as children due to abuse, neglect or a parent’s inability to keep them housed, fed, and in school;

(b) clients whose children had been removed for any or all of the same reasons and who had not been reunited with their kids;

(c) persons arrested, charged and sometimes previously convicted for committing crimes against children, including sex crimes, assault, criminal neglect, and homicide; and

(d) persons who insisted on pleading guilty to crimes they didn’t commit or which the State couldn’t have proven at trial, under threat that child services would be sent into the home to remove their children if they did not plead guilty.

19 November 2018 “Bad Paper” UPDATE:

Lorelei Laird. “Veterans may sue over discharges they say were result of untreated mental health problems.” ABA Journal. 19 November 2018.

The court’s description of the class who may sue the VA, taken from page 21 of the court’s order, is as follows:

Veterans who served during the Iraq and Afghanistan Era—defined as the period between October 7, 2001, and the present—who:

(a) were discharged from the Navy, Navy Reserves, Marine Corps, or Marine Corps Reserve with less-than-Honorable statuses, including General and Other-than-Honorable discharges but excluding Bad Conduct or Dishonorable discharges;

(b) have not received upgrades of their discharge statuses to Honorable from the NDRB; and

(c) have diagnoses of PTSD, TBI, or other related mental health conditions, or records documenting one or more symptoms of PTSD, TBI, or other related mental health conditions at the time of discharge, attributable to their military service under the Hagel Memo standards of liberal or special consideration.

The Yale Law School’s Veterans Legal Services Clinic and Jenner & Block LLP are the lawyers on this case, and they have filed similar litigation in the hopes of securing this same opportunity for veterans of other branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Here are the links to the complaint that started this lawsuit and the judicial order that allows these veterans to sue the VA as a class:

[end of update]

“Bad Paper” discharges and collateral consequences of criminal convictions are two of the snake pits that can prove lethal to military families’ chances of getting their kids back from state child welfare authorities. Here’s some of that discussion, excerpted from the new article manuscript.

Denial of veterans’ services*

“Although by law, Congress denies veterans’ services only to those “discharged under dishonorable conditions,” the VA has interpreted the intent of the law as excluding anyone with Dishonorable discharges as well as all veterans with Bad Conduct or OTH discharges, regardless of whether or not these latter discharges were related to any action understood as ‘dishonorable.’”

Ali R. Tayyeb and Jennifer Greenburg. “Bad Papers”: The Invisible and Increasing Costs of War for Excluded Veterans 6. Watson Institute of International and Public Affairs, Brown University. 20 June 2017 (citations omitted).

media image to accompany Yochi Dreazen book excerpt re suicides among past and present service members and impact on families. 564 x 250“Exclusion from basic veteran services is not only unfair, it is also deadly. Denying basic services means no health care for former servicemembers who are disabled, and no income support if disabilities prevent the servicemember from working. For veterans struggling with mental health problems, this abandonment is life-threatening. The suicide rate for veterans excluded from VA health care is twice the suicide rate for VA-recognized veterans.”

Swords to Plowshares a Veterans Rights Organization with assistance of Veterans Legal Clinic, Harvard Law School. Getting It Right: “Bad Paper” Legislation That Works. Prepared for March 29, 2017 House Veteran Affairs Committee, Subcommittee on Health Legislative Hearing on H.R 918 and others.

[*The article manuscript notes that spending legislation signed by President Trump in February of 2018 includes a number of intended improvements for those who’ve served in the U.S. Armed Forces, including for some of those with “bad paper.” Links to CRS guides to these new laws are included in the article mss.]

You didn’t have to go to prison? Cool. Time to lose government benefits, such as VA pension, medical care, TANF and SNAP; and no, you may not work in construction or as a cab driver, midwife, or barber.

John G. Malcolm, Vice President, Institute for Constitutional Government, Director & Ed Gilbertson and Sherry Lindberg Gilbertson Senior Legal Fellow, Edwin Meese III Center for Legal and Judicial Studies at The Heritage Foundation testified in May of 2018 about more than 48,000 state and local “collateral consequences” that destroy families but which folks might not have heard about before they decided to take that plea deal. Because these “civil” penalties are so destructive to a family’s chance to keep everyone together, here’s an excerpt from Mr. Malcolm’s 4 May 2018 testimony:

“Collateral consequences are considered to be civil in nature and thus distinct from criminal laws and penalties, so courts, prosecutors, and defense attorneys have generally treated them as falling outside the scope of their control and immediate concern. Few are aware of the full scope of these “post-sentence civil penalties, disqualifications, or disabilities” that follow a conviction, including criminal defendants and defense counsel. They should be.

“Similar problems can arise with respect to another category of collateral consequences: those that revoke receipt of or eligibility for certain government benefits. For example, a criminal conviction may cost a military veteran his or her pension, insurance, and right to medical treatment, which is particularly troubling because studies indicate that veterans who are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and therefore in serious need of medical treatment may be more likely to commit crimes. 

Strifeblog Henry part II 425 x 197As I explained on Strifeblog in August, in discussing a lawyer’s duties to a client,

“You do the best you can, though, because you swore you would and because the outcome of a criminal case – regardless of whether a client goes to prison – frequently inflicts significant consequences on the lives and fortunes of not just your client but also your client’s family. A criminal conviction, the criminal record that follows it, and any collateral consequences from the conviction, e.g., loss of professional license, reduction in amount of VA disability compensation, termination of VA pension payments, deportation, denial of access to public housing and federal student aid, etc., can hurt and even destroy families.”


Veteran staffed + veteran occupied civilian sector lock-up facilities

Veterans Serving Veterans” applied multi-product research project. Initial pre-project research underway. Project objective: if comprehensive research activity confirms pre-project research findings, then project seeks to contribute applicable information and relevant facts necessary for public policy communities to make informed decisions re establishment of lock-up units for military veterans who are held pre-judgment or incarcerated following criminal conviction, with such facilities to be characterized by four attributes:

(a) both staff and population are comprised solely of military veterans;

(b) facility policies, procedures, and practices are informed by current science re specialized needs of this highly specialized population with an eye toward avoiding population management practices that trigger combat-trauma associated symptomology;

(c) the provision of expert individualized evaluation and treatment for detainees or inmates suffering from internal and external trauma, whether acquired in combat or otherwise; and

(d) for veterans serving term of imprisonment by judgment, the provision of pre- and post-release transition/re-entry services designed to seek solutions for veterans who face especially difficult challenges securing sufficient income, housing, and services due to felony convictions, “bad paper” discharges, loss of or ineligibility for VA and other federal benefits or professional licenses, or whose continued injuries restrict available work options.

** Recent discussions with experts who’ve seen their proposed model legislation passed into law by state legislatures should encourage not just protections for military families whose children are taken into emergency custody by state officials; it’s reasonable to expect that these nascent relationships can also contribute to legislative support for further experimentation, and the establishment of, vet-focused jails, prisons, and tenant institutions within existing facilities.


Summary of researcher experience re detention- and incarceration-relevant issues

Charles LK Bloeser began his legal career as an assistant district attorney in the State of Oklahoma, where his responsibilities included pursuing the State of Oklahoma’s interests in criminal and civil cases. For most of the years since then, he’s dedicated his skillset to representing criminal defendants, appellants, and post-conviction petitioners in state and federal courts in the United States, including certiorari practice before the United States Supreme Court. Mr. Bloeser’s represented incarcerated clients in federal constitutional challenges to the terms and conditions of their confinement. He’s represented clients in federal district courts in Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Arizona, as well as in cases before the United States Courts of Appeal for the Fifth Circuit, Ninth Circuit, and Tenth Circuit. Mr. Bloeser’s interviewed clients and witnesses in state and federal lock-up facilities in Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas. Researcher maintains a Tennessee law license.

Almost 30 identified pre-project issues for this research activity include:

  • determination of how vet-dedicated facility to be designated / classified for purposes of institutional and inmate administration, for example, if facility designated under U.S. BOP, then inmates from USPs likely wouldn’t be allowed into the program but perhaps some from FCIs, dependent on offense of conviction, inmate disciplinary record, but most likely from lower-level correctional environments such as camps;
  • consideration of inmate disciplinary options and the extent to which these can be applied given a veteran’s particular mental and physical health considerations including, e.g., PTSD, blunt-force and explosive-blast-induced traumatic brain injury; absence or limitation of function with human limbs;
  • review extent to which WIT-SEC procedures can or must be employed for inmates at high risk of inside or external manipulation and threat by foreign governments, terror networks, and other threats to the safety of inmates and KSAs they possess;
  • examination of protections that need to be put in place for the protection of veterans who are not only inmates but also witnesses to crimes and other events for which they will be called to testify, including when an inmate is called to answer questions and/or testify in a criminal case against another housed inmate;
  • analysis of the various legal environments within which a vet-dedicated facility would operate, incl. state and federal constitutional requirements; process for redress and civil rights liability issues; professional licensing matters; applicable employment and contract law; applicability of statutory and DEA regulatory provisions concerning psychotropic drugs and their administration; and search for alternatives to exorbitant prison phone call rates and other practices and procedures that sever, often permanently, inmates from their families, resulting in increased vulnerability to health challenges, inability to access medical care and necessary medications, homelessness, and suicide.

Some challenges faced by veterans who would be detained or incarcerated in facilities such as those under consideration in this research activity

“[Those with bad paper discharges] are more likely to have mental health conditions and twice as likely to commit suicide. They are more likely to be homeless and to be involved with the criminal justice system.”

Legal Services Center, Harvard University, Nat’l Veterans Legal Services Program & Swords to Ploughshares. (2016, March).Underserved: How the VA Wrongfully Excludes Veterans with Bad Paper. Cambridge, MA: Harvard. 23

 “Veterans who received bad-paper discharges are overrepresented in the criminal justice system. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 23.2% of veterans in prison and 33.2% of veterans in jail were discharged with bad-paper, compared to less than 5% of the total veterans population.”

Legal Services Center, Harvard University, National Veterans Legal Services Prog. & Swords to Ploughshares 23

“. . . The VA created a Veteran Justice Outreach (VJO) program with staff who provide case management and other supportive services to veterans to help them avoid unnecessary incarceration. However, the VJO Program can only assist VA-eligible veterans, . . . one-third of Veteran Treatment Courts do not allow veterans who are not “VA eligible” to participate in their programs at all.”

Amicus Briefing

Crafting proposed model legislation designed to get more military families back together is not the only research activity that benefits especially well from the tools in this particular lawyer’s skill set and experience. Writing amicus briefs in cases that affect past, present, and future members of the Armed Forces is another. This comment from a law professor who clerked for two justices on the United States Supreme Court is from a few years ago, and it is specific to this lawyer’s practice at the United States Supreme Court. The diligence and commitment to producing top-shelf legal work are the same:

This past year, Charles called me several times for consultation on petitions for certiorari to the Supreme Court. Although an excellent writer and advocate already, Charles solicited my insights as a former Supreme Court law clerk on how to make a compelling case for review. The result of Charles’ extra efforts were two petitions that made the best case for certiorari possible given the available facts and law, and that were better than many of the hundreds of petitions by regular Supreme Court practitioners that I have reviewed.”

Prof. Joe Thai, University of Oklahoma College of Law

Charles Bloeser is licensed to practice law by the State of Tennessee (Tennessee Board of  Professional Responsibility #024022), in the United States. Prior to that, he served as an assistant district attorney and criminal trial and appellate lawyer in the State of Oklahoma. Attorney Bloeser has represented clients in a number of state and federal trial and appellate courts, as well as in certiorari practice at the United States Supreme Court. Having opted for inactive status while not in Tennessee, he’s open to providing contract research and writing services for legal counsel pursuing matters that concern the priorities of combatresearchandprose. He will explore whether returning his law license to active status will make it easier to do more good for more past and present military personnel and their families.

Section 1 – a sample of emails from the last 12 – 14 months, reflecting multiple attempts to calm the natives and secure the funding necessary to work full-time on projects that will benefit past and present military personnel and their families

Where additional factual, contextual, or explanatory content has been added, these appear in red. You’ll note that a number of these emails attempt to appeal to reason and rationality. But I’ve now learned that they went in together on a condo in Florida and have already moved away.

Shall we begin?

10 March 2018 email to Fr. Robert Hendrickson, III, rector at St. Philips Tucson, formerly handled corporate communication for Brooks Brothers, served as PR guy for Trinity Wall Street, and former Republican political operative, advising him that tentative referral was made to the authorities for possible investigation re apparent on-line child predator, who works as IT/cyber military contractor, and also appeared to be public policy adversary.



A brief detour: even though I’d found it necessary to make a tentative referral of the above IT/cyber govt contractor for investigation as an apparent on-line child predator, i included him, along with several other influential and highly networked persons I have good reason to believe could help bring a swift end to the conflict. Current bio and contact information for these individuals are among the contents of a giftwrapped three-ring binder that I personally delivered to the church office on or about Fr. Robert’s birthday before last, along with a card requesting assistance putting an end to the fight.

This was before I knew that the LGBT and human smuggling/sanctuary crowds were among my adversaries. This was before I learned that St. Philips Tucson is one of more than 750 Episcopal churches that have entered into formal relationships with Integrity, a nonprofit organization that for many years has been running a national political campaign that’s had great success achieving LGBT political goals. The goal that my former parish church in Tucson and 750 + other Episcopal churches have signed onto is one that, rather than guard society against all manner of sexual deviants, demands that we “welcome” and “affirm” them.


The individual I complain about to LinkedIn in the following request for assistance, summarily and without stated cause threw me out of a 70,000 member vet-focused LinkedIn group, and he manages a dozen social media networks for the same national security crowd my work is supposed to be serving. He’s among those included in Fr. Robert’s binder.




Jumping ahead to 5 September 2018 email to Fr. Robert inquiring as to wa whether he thought that the continued strangling alive of almost everything I produced or shared to benefit vets and their families might be prompted by aggression related to a 2004 article for my fellow lawyers and my work for Senator Jim Inhofe, a reliable conservative from Oklahoma and current Chairman of the Senate Armed Services committee. 










14 September 2018 follow-up email to Fr. Robert again requesting that he facilitate a meeting with a Mr. Bill Carrell, an apparent associate of the gentleman I referred for possible investigation as an apparent on-line child predator, and someone I have good reason to think has information that may be key to finally resolving the conflict with this extreme leftist alliance so that I can get back to the serious business of research fbo wounded warriors and their families.

As i advised Fr. Robert on 10 March and as I had previously advised the authorities, I learned about Mr. Carrell because he appeared separately on the incriminating Facebook page of the IT/cyber govt contractor. I advised both Fr. Robert and the authorities I’d made the referral about that I’d seen nothing to suggest that Mr. Carrell might also be (apparently) involved with very young girls.


I think I’ll let Fr. Mark Schultz, Curate for Children and Youth at St. Philips Episcopal in Tucson, speak for himself:

10 July 2018 email to Conrad Plimpton re further show of good will by me to adversaries, following substantial showing of good will on 7 November 2018.

screenshot_20190607-014402_print spooler-15402784256606984343..jpg

This may be a good place to insert a 10 July 2018 supplement to my 12 May 2018 crime report and accompanying evidence that I filed with the FBI IC3 (cybercrimes) office. It references my 22 June 2018 attempt to get advice re an armistice that I wanted to propose, from a DOJ attorney at the USAO’s office in Tucson. He’d been my opposing counsel in a federal civil case with my dad in the late 1990s.

A good faith mistake derailed that effort, though. Conrad told me that when he broached the subject of getting us together on this, that the AUSA angrily snapped that he didn’t want to have anything to do with me. They talked at a 7 July 2018 tropical-themed Rotary event that Conrad had invited me to at a country club on the east side of Tucson.

I was still putting together a substantial social-media focused good-faith peace offering the evening of 7 July 2018 and wanted to complete it and email it to Conrad before I left for the event. By the time I got there, though, Conrad had left to catch a plane from Sky Harbor. But he later told me that when he brought the matter up with that lawyer earlier on the evening of 7 July, it was the AUSA’s belief that I was the same person as my father that he gave for not wanting to have anything to do with me. Perhaps worse than that, the lawyer had, according to Conrad, as a result of that belief suffered great distress for nearly two decades.

When I later reflected on a fellow lawyer’s lengthy distress all because he made a simple mistake that I could have made, it got me thinking. An object lesson that I crafted for my fellow lawyers, appears after this IC3 supplemental.

25 July 2018 follow-up email to Howell Herring, former deputy IT director for City of Philadelphia, who now serves in the same role for City of Tucson, and his wife, Mary Hickert Herring, St. Philips Tucson vestry member, yet again trying to get help settling the feud from this particularly well-networked couple, fellow University of the South (Sewanee) alumni, who served for 3 years as mentors of my Sewanee-based EfM theological seminar that meets Tuesday evenings on the St. Philips Tucson property.

A couple of notes of interest re Education for Ministry (EfM): more than 800 EfM groups, their mentors linked by an on-line messaging system, are run every year out of Sewanee’s school of theology. Sewanee, itself, was founded by the Southern dioceses of the Episcopal Church  and it remains as a cluster of institutions under authority of the Episcopal Church. As you’ll see in another email, Mr. Clyde Kunz, an influential Episcopalian who spends most of his hours working for the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona, was also approached by me in attempt to quiet the restless natives. Clyde is an LGBT community member who moved to Tucson to take a job  with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra some years ago, runs his own non-profit consulting business and is an EfM mentor at another Episcopal Church in Tucson.

Information prepared for Conrad Plimpton in advance of his having another meeting in New Jersey with Ranger Schleck, West Pointer, defense/space materials contractor, who has served for several years as COO of Community Solutions. A bit later, I tell you more about who they are and why they, more than almost any other civilian sector participants, could without too much trouble, shut down this conflict and meaningfully encourage a mutually acceptable resolution to it. That’s why Jamie Schleck keeps showing up in this chronology.

7 October 2018 failed attempt to get assistance shutting down the war at the Diocesan level from Episcopalian LGBT community member and non-profit professional Clyde Kunz, whose then current and past clients include Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation, longtime employer of Beth Carey, COO at Tucson’s Primavera Foundation and longtime confidant of Peggy Hutchison and “Punch” Woods, a former, well-respected executive director of the Southern Arizona Food Bank. Punch told me once that every three months, the three of them get together for supper at one of their homes.



Although the issues have changed since then, one might say that Beth Carey started this war in the Spring of 2017.  She told me in the upstairs hallway at Primavera’s building at 702 South 6th Avenue, Tucson, that she did not disagree with my structural analysis of an assessment tool used to decide which homeless vets and others get housing with federal dollars. She told me that it had, in fact, confirmed her long-time concerns about the survey instrument. My reports (March 1 and March 13, 2017) found that nearly six out of every ten questions on the analyzed survey instrument are, structurally, fatally flawed. The result of these fatal design flaws is that the nationally used tool to pick who’s housed for 3 or 4 months and who’s kicked back to the curb determines relative vulnerability with the precision of a carnival raffle drum. 

Beth started the war in late March or early April of 2017 when she, in the language of Western lore, told me to shut up and lie about it. The woman on the left in this photo was or still is Primavera Foundation’s CFO.



In March 2019, I began efforts to interest members of a local philanthropic group, 100 + Tucson Women Who Care, in three matters: (1) encouraging Arizona-licensed lawyers who practice business, non-profit organization, insurance, regulatory law, etc. to look into what would be required to establish and provide to those on the streets a secured refrigeration  service for insulin and other medications that are worthless if not kept cool; (2) exerting their influence to put a stop to local Drag Queen Story Hour activities held in libraries and bookstores around the country (these events are used to normalize sexual deviancy and to give sexual predators access to small children); and (3) to use their power and influence to get Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to stand down and work toward a mutually satisfactory resolution to the present conflict.

The concern I still have, and one which I’ve expressed to Bishop Curry and others, is that if I’m left with no reasonable alternative to suing the Episcopal Church and members of its extreme leftist alliance for damages suffered by their vast and highly destructive character assassination campaign against me, the scope of permissible discovery and investigation activities in that type of case and under even just the facts known so far, would be so broad and so deep that it would, without doubt, lead to divulging a lot of private information about donors. This would discourage much private philanthropy, especially among donors who prefer or need to keep their financial matters private.

My hope was that if I could interest them in one or more of these issues, I might have a realistic chance of securing from their group both financial support and a public endorsement that might begin to undo some of the damage. But I swung and missed three times.

3 October 2018 proposed language for Ranger Jamie Schleck, Conrad’s friend who serves as COO at nationally-respected Community Solutions, following another meeting among myself, Conrad, and wife Ann Plimpton. I think I’ve concluded that Conrad’s been more foe than friend. But he’s one of very few indiduals I know who, within 24 hours, would be able to advocate with most of the key decision makers and influencers in the Country. 

The reason that I encouraged Conrad to advocate with Community Solutions’ COO Jamie Schleck is this, in a nutshell. But in a blogpost on his company’s website, the creator and key spokesperson for the worse-than-worthless instrument writes that it is the reason he’s been invited to the Obama White House later that day. And he credits, or implicates, Community Solutions as the reason that his assessment tool gained acceptance across the country as quickly as it did.

14 November 2018 email to “Punch” Woods, longtime confidant of aggressive and extraordinarily well-networked adversaries Peggy Hutchison and Beth Carey, urging that they use their influence to help bring a peaceful end to the conflict. I make the argument with three examples of applied research issues that very few others are qualified to handle. Again, no favorable response or action followed this appeal.

This is the same “Punch” Woods who three days later, on 17 November, would receive the first of 5 written notice and warnings (including 2 reminders)  on behalf of Peggy, Beth, and their allies. These warned them not to take any action against Christine now that we were dating. They were advised that because of a sufficiently identified medical condition, any actions against her by them would bring increased risk of causing her serious harm or worse. Rather than respond favorably to this information, the alliance has its its skilled operative exploiting Christine’s vulnerabilities.

Here’s just one of several failed attempts to get Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry to do what’s right for a lot more people in the long run.

There’s a lot more emails to quite a few more well-connected and influential Episcopalians and others, reflecting many more doomed good-faith attempts to get back to doing what I do best for past and present members of our various national security communities and their families. All of these have failed.



Section 2 – two examples of ongoing smear campaign tactics that undermine potential funders’ perceived viability of the proposed research initiative

EXAMPLE 1: Current day combat – related trauma issues presented through the experiences of Allied airmen flying bombing runs over occupied Europe during World War II

*** The first three images below are from an article project that stalled when LinkedIn – I assume – abruptly and without notice sliced the head off a scholarly collaboration with a number of British Military History subject matter experts. These are smart, experienced people in and out of government who introduced me to relevant source materials from the UK that were new to me. One of those sources, the late Ben Shephard’s A War of Nerves: soldiers and psychiatrists in the twentieth century, has proved itself more valuable than any other source on the subject of trauma as it’s experienced by military service personnel.

The hatchet job on our collaboration occurred, if I remember right, somewhere in the 24-hour space between these Brits’ enthusiastic source sharing re Great Britain’s decision to follow America’s lead in performing leukotomy/ lobotomy procedures on World War II veterans and the moment when those same experts as well as quite a few others, simply vanished, most not to be seen again. Not even when I shared what I’d written about Britain’s decision to drink the leukotomy/lobotomy KoolAid with the sources and ideas they’d given me.

There are 3 items I hope you’ll take note of in these images: (1) the number of reported views for each post; (2) the directional path those numbers take; and (3) any notable changes in the composition of employers who appear in the left column as a result of having seen the posts and engaged with them.





ON LIFE SUPPORT: Open-source article explains why SOF troops are needed now more than ever.

The second example of research shop viability getting sucker-punched can be seen in a sequence of hich relate to a images related to an almost overnight enthusiasm for my research article about fallen “Delta Force” operator Josh Wheeler and the kinds of work and personalities such jobs demand, especially in an ever more challenging international security environment.

The open-source article introduces us to fallen U.S. Army MSgt Joshua L. Wheeler (1975 -2015), from Sequoyah County, Oklahoma and who was last assigned to 1st SFOD-D. Sequoyah County is one of 20 counties assigned to me for the 1996 reelection campaign of U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe, successor to Senator John McCain as Chairman of the Senate Armed Services committee. Cherokee warrior Josh Wheeler had enlisted in the Army the year before my political work in Oklahoma’s northeastern corner began.

P{raise from cleared military and ex-military told me that I’d gotten a lot right. [Here’s a link to the renamed article.]

But that’s a problem for those peddling the lie that I’m the one who’s really a security threat.

So, for more than a year the SOF/Josh Wheeler article has been fighting for its life. Time and again Facebook has blocked my efforts to post the article because it’s “against community standards.” And Facebook and LinkedIn (it appears) have cooked up fraudulent analytics that suggest the article’s really not that good and not much of anybody cared about it. The bogus analytics now appear where the legit numbers used to be. Both sets of numbers can be seen in the images I provide here.

phi delta phi logo 200 x 229A few words about this lawyer and researcher:

He has frequently been in my court handling matters by appointment under the Criminal Justice Act. He is always prepared, effective, and above reproach, ethically.”

– U.S. District Court Judge

. . . Charles has always been an innovative, responsible and thorough advocate for his clients. We don’t often agree, but he is a thoughtful professional in his representation. I have found him to be particularly scrupulous in ethical matters.”

– Assistant U.S. Attorney

“Charles himself is also admirably dedicated to improving his own practice. This past year, Charles called me several times for consultation on petitions for certiorari to the Supreme Court. Although an excellent writer and advocate already, Charles solicited my insights as a former Supreme Court law clerk on how to make a compelling case for review. The result of Charles’ extra efforts were two petitions that made the best case for certiorari possible given the available facts and law, and that were better than many of the hundreds of petitions by regular Supreme Court practitioners that I have reviewed. Afterwards, at Charles’ request, we met to go over his petitions with an eye towards producing even stronger ones in the future.”

– Law Professor and former law clerk for two justices on the U.S. Supreme Court

NEW FROM STRIFEBLOG and this lawyer – an ugly true story of a former client: Part I of Henry: a wounded soldier forgotten by all in an American jail – by all except his brothers who fell beside him in Vietnam

STRIFE. Henry Part 1. Charles Bloeser article on Strifeblog 2 August 2018. 500 x 267

“But for this combat veteran’s wife, Henry was never the kind of man who could be distilled into simple words like “defendant” and “perpetrator and “abuser.” There was no black and white in being struck by a man she knew had always loved her but whose best efforts to get relief from the symptoms of war had proved little more than the American version of a snipe hunt.

“Decades of medical practice have allowed the physician to see the signs of trauma in a broad range of patients who’ve served in the military and those who haven’t. In patients who’ve been in combat and those who have not. And while he does not suggest that a survivor of domestic violence has no claim to the label or resources associated with a PTSD diagnosis, there is, he agrees, a clinically meaningful difference between the kind of trauma that person suffers and the nature of the trauma experienced by members of the armed forces who must decide again and again which of the identically dressed men, women, and children in a dust-soaked, IED-laced town square can and might kill you or those you’ve sworn to protect.”
