Alexandria Brown: Response to Ryan Ramsey and Timeline of Events


Ryan Ramsey is the guy with no shirt on in the photo above.

Via email from Alexandria Brown, in response to an article by Ryan Ramsey. My own response to sections of that article as well as a followup article dealing with myself, IPR and Warren Redlich is still forthcoming. – paulie

Background:

Police Report: Augustus Invictus accused of domestic violence, sexual assault, kidnapping, terroristic threats

Update on rape, assault, kidnapping and witness tampering allegations against Augustus Invictus

Update on Augustus Invictus criminal allegations and retraction of censure from Florida LP; possible disaffiliation by LNC floated

David Colborne: Augustus Sol Invictus Is Not Welcome In My State

Kn@ppster: ‘We’re going to shut it down’

Libertarians United Against Fascism: ‘To the Cowardly Collaborators of the Libertarian Party of Florida, and a Call to Action Against Them’

Knapp: Replace LP of Florida Exec Comm and Bylaws


UPDATE: The items Alexandria Brown responds to here have currently been edited out of the original article by Ryan Ramsey at Libertarian Heathen. Currently the article has been edited to include the retraction letter linked below and says Ms. Brown was manipulated and made false allegations. In reality, Ms. Brown did not claim that the allegations by Ms. Rice were true previously, and she has not said they are false now. She did however help publicize those allegations and has now clarified that she has no direct knowledge of whether they are true or false. Likewise, myself and IPR are making no positive claim about whether the allegations by Ms. Rice are true or false, and never have. -paulie

To go over the false information in the Ramsey piece, which Augustus has said he would retract but which he has not:

the Social Security scamming prostitute and drug dealer

I am a disabled woman who legally collects Social Security disability, and I am a webcam model, which is a form of legal sex work.

She made the fake report

Victoria Rice made the report.

following a monetary loss she suffered

There was never any incident in which I suffered a monetary loss. Victoria had asked me if she could webcam model with me, and I did it for her as a favor because she needed the money. I have no trouble making money on my own as a model, and I have my basic expenses taken care of by disability, so there was no reason for me to be upset about any money lost as a result of the webcam show.

an impending exploitation of a young woman having a mental health episode induced by the methamphetamine and pills Ms. ***** was pushing  on her

I have never been within ten miles of methamphetamine. While I take psychiatric medications, I do not share them with people, because that is against federal law. As far as I am aware, Ms. Rice does not suffer from any mental health problems.

She lost money and concocted a revenge scheme with ANTIFA associates.

Again, there was no monetary loss as a result of the events of Saturday, March 18th, 2017. I am not part of Antifa. I did not request that ItsGoingDown run any articles on Augustus or contact them about it, they found my blog post and did that of their own accord.

at the police Station where a relative of another prostitute friend of theirs works

I do not know anyone who is engaged in prostitution, which is illegal. And I don't have any connection to any police station in Edgewood or Altamonte whatsoever. I do not live in Orlando; I know maybe two or three people in Orlando and they have nothing whatsoever to do with any of this.

The SPLC has said that Ryan Ramsey is on their radar as being a neo-Nazi. I do not know how he could possibly have gotten access to my webcam modeling name. Hence, I also do not know what other private information Mr. Ramsey may have gotten access to. However, I have been receiving harassing phone calls on my webcam modeling line since the publication of the article. As a result I now have concerns for my safety which I am planning to report to local law enforcement, am changing my phone number, and may relocate.

Mr. Invictus claims in his Facebook post with my retraction that I was having a "psychotic episode" when I helped Victoria to make her statement, which I recorded and transcribed for her (separate from any police report she filed). I was not having a psychotic episode at that time. I have recently experienced psychosis, but only after being threatened with the lawsuit by Mr. Invictus, which my psychiatrist can attest to if needed. At the time of Victoria making her statement to me, the mental health concern which I believe compromises my judgment, and thus my ability to properly evaluate the truth of Ms. Rice's allegations, is hypervigilance, a common effect of Post-Traumatic Stress disorder, which is the condition I suffer from.

Regarding the accusations of scamming: the total cost of my legal fees has not been disclosed to me yet, but is at least $500. My invoice will cover the cost of my attorney writing an initial letter to Mr. Perenich and the cost of his helping us to mediate the process of negotiating the retraction. As per CrowdJustice's policy, the difference will be refunded. The CrowdJustice site has my attorney's financial information, not mine, and the money changes hands only between them. I do not even have access to it. Mr. Stanton had expressed his hope that I donate the remainder to Ms. Rice's legal fund, but unfortunately I am not able to do that, and my understanding is that Ms. Rice's family has her legal costs fully covered.

    “Regarding the accusations of scamming: the total cost of my legal fees ”

    The crowdfunding was not for contextless “legal fees.” The crowdfunding plea was for supporting DEFENSE AGAINST Invictus, not supporting SETTLING WITH Invictus.

  2. Alexandria

    Thomas,

    As I said above, I literally became psychotic on April 8th prior to issuing the retraction. The fact that I am a person who may experience psychosis under extreme stress means that it would be highly irresponsible for me to maintain that I have any knowledge of whether or not events which I did not witness first-hand occurred. I don’t see how I could reasonably insist upon claiming the allegations are true, given that fact. If you’re worried about people needing to defend against Invictus, go talk to the LPF. I’m not sure why you expect me, a newcomer to this entire community, who is disabled, to be able to mediate and placate everyone in this highly tense, highly volatile situation solo.

    If you donated and want your money back, talk to me and I’ll give you something.

  3. Jill Pyeatt

    Apparently, Mr. Invictus thinks calling someone a “prostitute” is a huge insult and will negate a person’s value. Is he so unaware of Libertarianism that he doesn’t know most of us don’t care about whether someone is a prostitute or not? I’ll tell him:

    Hey, Augustus! We Libertarians think women can use their bodies as they wish. We consider prostitution to be in a category of “victimless crime”.

    Most of us also don’t care about drug use. It’s someone’s personal business.

    Many of us do care about someone threatening and scaring young women because you don’t like what they say, however. You might wish to read up on our NAP.

    Alexandria, congratulations on being pretty enough to make money being a webcam model. I do not think that’s prostitution, even though I wouldn’t care if it was. I’m sorry that bully Augustus is making your life difficult.

  4. Thomas L. Knapp

    Alexandria,

    No, I don’t want my money back. It wasn’t much anyway.

    What I wantED, past tense was for the money to be used for what it was raised for, your defense against Invictus’s threat of a frivolous and meritless lawsuit.

    The first time someone stands up to that tactic and tells Invictus to bring it if he has the stones, he’ll knock that shit off. I thought you were the person who was going to do that.

  5. Tony From Long Island

    It is a good day when Jill and I agree! It’s not a common event 🙂

  6. Alexandria

    Thomas,

    My concern was never with winning a battle against Augustus. As a domestic violence survivor myself, my concern was always with ensuring Ms. Rice’s safety. Augustus has now given me his word that Ms. Rice is not in danger of being harmed; the authorities and the media have now been alerted as to her allegations. As for those, it is up to the authorities, and not me, to decide whether or not they are true. I decline to play the role of judge and jury in this situation, but please note that I did not assert that I can know allegations were false, either. Respectfully, my decision to submit to Augustus’ demands reflects a difference in priorities between you and myself, and not a deficiency in my strength of will or concern for justice, as you have implied..

    Apparently, Mr. Invictus thinks calling someone a “prostitute” is a huge insult and will negate a person’s value. Is he so unaware of Libertarianism that he doesn’t know most of us don’t care about whether someone is a prostitute or not? I’ll tell him:

    yeah…pointed that out in a previous thread…as if prostitution and drug use are somehow character flaws. Not in my book…

  8. Thomas L. Knapp

    “my decision to submit to Augustus’ demands reflects a difference in priorities between you and myself”

    Yes, it does — a difference that you did not disclose when you asked people to financially support you in doing something you ended up not doing.

    If you think that Augustus’s word on Ms. Rice’s safety — or for that matter on anything else, including the likelihood that he’ll leave YOU alone now that you’ve shown him he can have anything he demands from you just by threatening to sue you — is worth a tinker’s damn, you’re very naive. Which is why I will probably send you a few dollars the NEXT time he pulls this shit on you, too.

  9. George Phillies

    “…Mr. Invictus thinks calling someone a “prostitute” is a huge insult and will negate a person’s value. ..”

    As Melania Trump just demonstrated, it IS a huge insult in the ears of most people, DOES negate that person’s value in the eyes of many people, enough to be worth a seven digit cash settlement.

  10. paulie Post author

    I don’t think it’s an insult. It’s an honest job. A lot of people think my job should be all-volunteer too, but I don’t see them replacing me with their volunteer efforts.

  11. Ryan Ramsey

    The items were edited out, a couple days ago, per your request as part of the settlement agreement Alexandria.

    I was contacted today that you wished more of it including the items listed here be removed, no problem, I removed them.

    I simply replaced them with your retraction letter, before this article I am commenting on was published. Thanks for playing, I suppose I could put it all back in. I suggest you take this article down and I will leave all your info redacted, and we will all move on with our lives, I honestly have much bigger fish to fry, and better things to do.

    I was told you were satisfied with the edit, if you are not just do like you have been doing, make polite requests through your attorney, I am happy to oblige, I am no enemy of yours.

    Prove the allegations or drop the horse shit. That is all that matters. These fucking little childish games are getting old. Why the hell don’t you all just fuck off once and for all?

    Prove the allegations or drop the horse shit.

    We report the facts, and we have made clear what is an allegation, what is an opinion and what is a fact. We are making no claims about whether the claims are true or false, our job is just to report that they exist. Readers can make up their own minds as to what they think of the information. We report, you decide. You know, just like the “real” news.

    That is all that matters.

    Thank you for your opinion.

    These fucking little childish games are getting old.

    Yes, they are. Please cut them out. Reporting allegations is a part of reporting the news.

    Why the hell don’t you all just fuck off once and for all?

    No. And back at ya.

  16. Ryan Ramsey

    I could care less about you selling your body btw, but if you can make yourself cum repeatedly for 2.99 a minute I think you can support yourself, rather than the taxpayers.

    That is the libertarian issue at hand Jill, not self ownership.

    Knapp, thanks for denouncing the violent threats and the attempts to shut our convention down. I know you don’t like AI, never had a problem with that, but the fact you seem to know where the line is here is dully noted.

  17. Jill Pyeatt

    RR: ” I could care less”

    The phrase is “I couldn’t care less”. The way you say it doesn’t make sense.

    “That is the libertarian issue at hand Jill, not self ownership”.

    Perhaps that should have been said, then, as opposed to calling her a prostitute over and over again.

  18. NewFederalist

    “It is a good day when Jill and I agree! It’s not a common event ” – Tony From Long Island

    You are right about that. You might try it more often.

    denouncing the violent threats

    What violent threats? Is this like the psychological projection where you call me a pedophile and a terrorist with zero evidence?

  20. paulie Post author

    Oh yeah and the bullshit about me killing or torturing a dog. Another lie with zero basis in fact whatsoever, and another case of projection since your buddy Invictus tortured and dismembered a goat over the course of about 15 minutes on video and who knows what all the fuck you have done in that department.

  21. Tony From Long Island

    Jill: ” . . . . The phrase is “I couldn’t care less”. The way you say it doesn’t make sense. . . . ”

    Exactly!! This is one of my top pet peeves!! See? Twice in one week we agree.
    ———————————————————————————————————————

    NewFed: ” “It is a good day when Jill and I agree! It’s not a common event ” . . . You are right about that. You might try it more often.

    Sadly, this is not likely 🙂 I respect Jill though. Andy is a nut, Jill is just passionate.

  22. paulie Post author

    You probably agree with Jill a lot more than you realize. Libertarians and Democrats agree on many issues and you seem fairly libertarian-leaning for a Democrat.

  23. Tony From Long Island

    That’s probably true. There’s plenty Jill and I agree on, but what we disagree on (such as probably gun regulation and taxes and whether Hillary Clinton is evil) are pretty big chasms 🙂

    And I thank you for pointing out that I do have several libertarian-ish positions. I wasn’t a 20 LP member for the fun of it.

  24. Alexandria

    Ryan,

    You write, “I could care less about you selling your body btw, but if you can make yourself cum repeatedly for 2.99 a minute I think you can support yourself, rather than the taxpayers.”

    I see what you are saying here, but I wanted to make my specific situation a little clearer as I think it is important to raise awareness about C-PTSD, sex work, and disability programs.

    First, here is a link to some info about C-PTSD, which is different from regular PTSD: https://www.ptsd.va.gov/professional/ptsd-overview/complex-ptsd.asp

    In addition to being lucky to have disability, I am very lucky to be able to do the work that I do (by the way, thanks, Jill!). When I am doing well, and can work a lot, it does pay well. If I did not suffer from mental illness, I would agree with you that it would be wrong to ask taxpayers to support me. But there are a couple of mitigating factors at play here.

    My general well-being comes and goes depending on what I’m dealing with at the time. For example, throughout the whole situation with Mr. Invictus and the revelation of allegations about him, my mental health suffered tremendously, not least because of the mental toll taken by the possibility that these allegations were true about someone about whom I cared tremendously. Under stress like that, I cannot function, I must get help merely to survive, much less to work long hours. As Mr. Invictus himself has seen throughout our friendship, It’s more serious than just being in a bad mood and not wanting to work—during these times, if I do not stop everything to care for myself, I cannot eat, I cannot sleep, and I often lose my grounding in reality itself. I am subject to irrational fears in a way that dominates my life completely. And in the past, that has almost cost me my life—in 2012, the dose of medications required to mitigate my paranoia was very high, and as a result of drinking too much water while on those medications I went into a coma for three days, and nearly died. I am very lucky to be alive today.

    Because my C-PTSD arises from sexual abuse, sometimes I get calls where the caller’s request is very disturbing to me. I also lose the ability to work then. When my mental health is at stake, I have to reduce the pressure on myself—if I’m in school, that means I have to withdraw from my semester. If I’m working, that means I have to stop working. I thus don’t have an income that is regular. When I am well, I can make a lot of money. When I am unwell, I would be homeless and starving were it not for the disability.

    The disability system is set up to accommodate the fact that disabled people’s ability to work is irregular. As an independent contractor, I report my income with my taxes to the Social Security office. As long as my income is not above a certain amount after business expenses, I retain disability eligibility. If I were making so much money that it were easy for me to support myself without taxpayer help, I would lose my disability, as you suggest should be the caase.

    I recognize that you and I may disagree about what constitutes a fair level of income for me to make before I lose my disability status, or other things that I’m not thinking of here, but I just wanted to make all that clear for my part, so you don’t think that I do not recognize your concerns.

    Best,
    Alexandria

    Hi again everyone,

    I wanted to post a link to a statement which I released yesterday here, as I think it is relevant—the folks at ItsGoingDown.org, who initially found my first blog post on the allegations and covered it without consulting me, have not responded to my requests that they remove the information from their post. Thus, I wanted to make a post to clarify my official position regarding the conflict between Antifa and Augustus Invictus. I think it is extremely important to be clear about these matters of principle at this moment in history, because they have real, concrete effects on people’s lives—as the absolutely unacceptable threats and attempts on Augustus’ life have demonstrated.

    Here is what I have written—
    http://alexandriabrown.tumblr.com/post/159543586098/on-antifa-mr-augustus-invictus

    Thank you all for this discussion, I value it very much.

  26. Thomas L. Knapp

    Thanks for doing your best to keep everyone informed, Alexandria. I strongly suspect that you would prefer to be left alone, or at least out of this controversy, going forward, and am happy to respect that desire … but I suspect that Invictus and his crew will continue to drag you through the mud as a way of making themselves look like victims at every opportunity. Good luck in freeing yourselves of their attentions.

  27. paulie Post author

    Thanks TLK and Tony. Getting back to Mr. Ramsey’s work of fiction loosely based on some real events:

    His close association with Paul Stanton adds more credibility to the allegations of election fraud in the primary, during which Stanton and Frankel were working very closely.

    Very closely? That’s an insane exaggeration. I posted a few articles here and there, reposted a few of them to FB. That’s about it. Oh, and I happened to be in the Orlando area for a few weeks before and after the convention so I attended one event at a county party meeting where Mr. Stanton gave a speech. That’s about it.

    Maybe he taught Stanton some of his old tricks.

    What? I don’t think he even needed to gather signatures. Pretty sure he did not. In any case, no, I did not teach him how to forge signatures. I was never good at it, either.

    I am struggling to understand how the LNC would have a Representative who is barred from various activities regarding elections serving as a representative.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. Serving on the LNC did not involve any any activity from which I am barred. Neither is working as a petitioner. The original probation agreement said I was not to work on petitions for some period of time in any state, but that has long ago expired, and I signed it under duress at the behest of an Oregon judge who has no jurisdiction over what happens in any other state. In any case none of your examples of me working as a petitioner are from the period of time when the coerced agreement supposedly barred me from doing so,

    Even more bizarre is the claim Augustus Invictus brings discredit on the Libertarian Party. I cannot imagine anything that looks worse than petition forgers leading political parties.

    Oh, I can think of a few things, many of which are true about Augustus Invictus.

    Then I found out that he and another man tortured a rivals dog to death and dumped its corpse in another state.

    That is a lie. Not only is this a lie by the original and highly disreputable source, Eric Dondero, but it’s a straight up lie by Ryan Ramsey to be repeating this false allegation as if he had some kind of evidence that it was true. Notice that Ryan does not say that someone else made such a claim, as I would if I was writing an article like this, he makes a positive claim that he found out it was true. How exactly? It is not true and there is no truth to it at all. I have never, ever tortured or killed a dog. On the other hand, Mr. Ramsey’s good friend Mr. Invictus did infamously torture and dismember a goat so maybe this is psychological projection?

    I am still searching for records, but multiple websites discuss the story.

    And all of these websites are neo-nazi trash sites which peddle lies and no evidence. How does a bunch of disreputable trash blogs run by trolls repeating the same lies make them true?

    That may be the charge he was a fugitive from while serving on the LNC, and he was arrested in South Carolina on the fugitive warrant shortly after he was campaigning for the At-Large seat.

    Nope.
