Default The Posts At Issue

As promised here are the posts that the USCF moderators found
objectionable. It becomes clear how the moderators have circumscribed
the discussion of anything relating to Polgar and Truong on the USCF
Issues forum:
---------------------------------------------------------------

It now appears that the main agendas were control of scholastics (fear
of that led the Delegates to pass a resolution preventing the out
sourcing of scholastics) and the removal of the USCF as the FIDE
affiliate for the US (judging from reports of conversations in Mexico
City and information now coming to light out of Illinois that is being
discussed and investigated further by several others). GM Polgar has
done nothing constructive for the USCF since her election. Up until her
isolation from the board due to legal action and representation issues,
she was just a complainer continuing her campaign rhetoric of attack and
disparagement, IMO.

----------------------------------------------------
I appeared before Judge Glenn several times when she sat in Part 5,
Matrimonial, in Supreme Court, NY County. She was one of the worst
judges I have ever appeared before. At times irrational, decisions that
were nonsense and very often reversed on appeal. IIRC, she was
"reassigned" from matrimonial to criminal court where her irrationality,
it was hoped, would not stand out so much. How she ever got herself
elected as one of the NY County Surrogate Judges, is something I can
only guess at as I've been out of the NYC loop for a few years. I'll
make some inquiries.

Have pity on Benko. Hope he appeals and joins the multitude that has had
Glenn's decisions reversed.

Something to think about in relation to accounting firms and audited
financial statements when considering the USCF's finances.

Ah, the irony. Blond jokes have apparently been banned in Hungary.

Some more interesting reading about blond jokes for our good old boyz here.

Responding to this comment by Truong on chessdiscussion, "......The
board and the ED have our email addresses and phone numbers. They know
how to contact us if they need help. I somehow highly doubt that it will
happen. Welcome to the real USCF!"


The final paragraph is amazing. They have been on the board for nearly
nine months and all he can say is that the board and ED have their
addresses and phone numbers. That is the lamest excuse for not doing
ones job after promising to bring in million dollar sponsors while bad
mouthing all the evil chess politicians. Mr. Truong and Ms. Polgar,
you're either part of the problem or part of the solution. Clearly,
you're the problem and haven't got a clue as to a financial solution.

BTW, how about a detailed accounting of what you've brought in to SPICE
and the Polgar Foundation as claimed above? It would be nice to see if
you've breached your fiduciary duty of loyalty to the USCF by not
informing the USCF of economic opportunities that were steered to others.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
I find it tragic that the USCF board has frozen Ms. Alarie out of the
finance committee loop and can not effectively use her detailed
knowledge of USCF financial issues for the benefit of the organization.

The telling point here, in case anyone missed it, is that the plan was
apparently NOT properly restated. But don't worry. If the benefits folks
in Atlanta can't sort it out, you can bet the IRS will once that former
employee complains. Just do go hiding money in accounts in strange
places that other board members don't know about until the check bounces
a la Jamie's $24,000.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Booked into early 2009 and yet in his 6/21/2007 petition he says his
wife has virtually no income and that he has none even though he is
managing her bookings.

I have related these and additional matters to Judge Dennis E. Milton
and to the Queens County District Attorney. Because Mr. Truong's
representation of business interests with his wife are at such variance
with his bankruptcy petition, I will also be contacting the fraud unit
at the IRS, suggesting that they examine his personal tax returns and
those of the Susan Polgar Foundation.
-------------------------------------------------------------

I'd think some inaccuracies should be cleared up. Firstly, I'm not aware
of any of the named defendants in Polgar's action having telephoned TTU.
I do know, from rgcp, that Marcus Roberts filed a report with the TTU
police dept. alleging that Truong had threatened to kill him. I have a
copy of that if anyone can't find it with a Google search. Mr. Roberts
signed tat report claiming to be the Ambassador to Nieves and St. Kitts.
Did Marcus Roberts telephone TTU? Perhaps Ms. Polgar should ask him
through her attorney.

I'm not aware of anyone having accused Ms. Polgar of child abuse. A
court order of the NY Family court was obtained and made available via
rgcp by Sam Sloan. The prohibitions in the order were discussed by many
people in many forums as was the resolution of the matter with Mr.
Truong claiming that there was a finding of no abuse. That assertion was
disputed and proof never offered by Mr. Truong to support his assertion.
The issue of whether or not hot saucing was abuse was discussed in
various forums in the cultural context of various areas of the US and
Southeast Asia as well as state regulation of the practice in child care
settings.

Ms. Polgar and Mr. Truong are limited public figures under Sullivan. To
prevail in a defamation action they must plead the exact words that are
false and defamatory and they must prove that the false and defamatory
words were uttered with actual malice. Actual malice requires that they
prove the alleged defamer acted knowing the statement was false or with
reckless disregard for the truth or falsity of the statement. In US
defamation law, truth is an absolute defense to a charge of defamation.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The bankruptcy issue goes to the credibility of Paul Truong and Susan
Polgar. During the election campaign they BOTH clearly knew that Paul
Truong had a bankruptcy proceeding pending while touting Truong's
business acumen, success and retirement to pursue chess promotion and
development. That is, IMO, disingenuous at best.

I have submitted to the bankruptcy judge, materials outlining problems
with Mr. Truon's bankruptcy filing, including a copy of his TTU pay stub
indicating that he was employed by TTU at an annual salary of $75,000.00
when telling the bankruptcy court in sworn papers that he was
unemployed. The trustee in bankruptcy who supervised Mr. Truong's
bankruptcy discharge is now reviewing the matter at the request of Judge
Milton, the bankruptcy judge who issued the order discharging Mr. Truong
as a bankrupt on October 30, 2007.

Mr. Nibbian, truth matters. That's why the bankruptcy issue is so
important. Do you disagree?

Please note that the above postings are those that the moderators have
found so objectionable that they have voted to have Lafferty banned
from posting for one year.

None of the postings are in any way objectionable. They are valid
commentary of the type that should be encouraged and not banned from
the USCF Issues Forum.

I had a post pulled for using the euphemism "effing".

Yet unsubstantiated allegations of attacking web-hosting sites, and
repetitious arguments ad nauseam are allowed from some people.
