One of the toughest tasks to overcome in the cryptid world is ignorance. Now there is also a fringe of this element that goes on in the paranormal world that is applicable as well. (The folks that are holier than thou thinking paranormal investigation is the “devil’s work.”)

So first let me say this disclaimer, Folks who have followed me for years know what I am about. In 2009 when we released Squatchdetective.com 2.0, we issued what I called the Five Tenets of Bigfoot Research. It was OUR mission statement.

1456438

First let me explain the Five Tenets.

Tenet 1: Keep an open mind.

By keeping an open mind it allows you to see what others may miss.

In living that, we should live that everywhere all the time. A closed mind not only makes blind to what may be going on around us, but also stymies us from life fulfillment. If I did not have an open mind, I would have never gotten into this field. It does not mean you cannot have preconceived notions, just that you should be flexible to change and challenge your own thoughts and thought processes.

 

Tenet 2: Remain objective

An open mind does not mean compromising reality.

Just because we have an open mind does not mean proven logic and science are thrown out the window. They still apply. An open mind with no barriers is fantasy. Objectivity is the perimeter that we must keep at all times. The beauty is, that works both ways.Objectivity and Open Mindedness are not antagonists, they work hand in hand in solving problems.

Tenet 3: Always tell the truth

Honesty is the best policy, never be afraid to report results that are negative towards your quest.

Here is the hitch-pin of what we do. What would we be if we weren’t honest not only with the public, but with ourselves? A person is only born with one integrity. Should it be compromised, you might as well hang up your trail cams. When I got into this field, I thought it was going to be ALL debunked. Little did I know. If you make a mistake, admit it. Don’t try to cover it up, or blame others. Nobody is perfect. To err is human. Embrace it. If you are in it for the glory, a sociopath, a hoaxer, or so self absorbed, throw this Tenet out the window.

Tenet 4: Responsibility to educate

Educating the public about the phenomena is a responsibility not an option.

We must do this. Not to advance our cause, or convince people what we believe in, they should believe in. But rather they understand the platform in which we come from is not one from silly thought, fantasy nor open mindedness without the barriers of objectivity, but rather from experience, science and solid investigative work. It is also a must to negate all the falsities and misconceptions that are said of the phenomena that casts a bad light on us as a collective.

 

Tenet 5: Expose the charlatans

Part of education is exposing the harbingers that bring junk science and misnomers to the world of Bigfoot research.

This is part of our job as well. We must stand for the truth, and when falsities and the truth are not vigorously defended, it is submission to the lies, hoaxers and misconceptions that are told of the phenomena. By saying nothing, you are standing for nothing.

 


Dealing with ignorance

Now first let me speak of something. When I posted the last blog, someone whom I had once known got on there and said I am fixated with the subject of  the last blog. We all should be. Why? Because he is still trying to get money from people, in his latest reinvention, for reasons as he explained in the past. More of the same. I didn’t fixate on him, the mainstream media did.  It wasn’t like I was looking to write another article on him, but to ignore what was said in the media would be a violation of Tenet 5.

Second, this person,  placed it on my fan page. I am sorry but that is just plain rude. He said something about me baiting him on Squatchdetective Radio over something not even related to the matter, which shows the man’s pettiness and why he has been blocked for years on my personal page. I guess asking tough questions is “baiting.”

This man, whom once called me and asked my opinion of the prior. I told him my opinions and shared some facts just after writing or in the process of writing my book on the topic: “ Fifty Large.”

His response? To get angry with me, and work with him anyway. Well, if he didn’t like what I was going to say, or value it, then why ask other than to run back to the prior and stir up trouble. Needless to say months later he called me and told me he had been burned by him. Sorry not even a crocodile tear; you were warned.

 

hypocrisy

Mind you he joined with this Hall of Shamer,  after the 2008 hoax the prior was involved in, and after he had announced his retirement from making films on cryptids, because of hoaxers, liars, etc.

So who does he turn to? Who does he think he really fooling?

What he wanted was a film award, and admitted  that to me, during the fateful day’s discussion. That’s why after announcing his “retirement” he went to the first inductee. The shot at getting the prestigious Pocono Mountain Film Festival Award. Hence…glory.

Today, by the looks of it, he still hasn’t retired, after making the rude and “lies by omission,”  comments under the guise of nicety, on my fan page. My social platforms are MY social platforms so since he has announced his retirement, many years ago, I felt obliged to retire him from his obsession with what I write.

Typical of this man’s tender ego, despite me not even naming him, I expect an email, or blog comment for approval blasting me for not being, “nice” as he put it. This guy has a habit of trying to get lawyers to shut people up about anything negative. Sound familiar?

Reference:

Look towards the bottom of the page for the story, Legal Beagle:  https://squatchdetective.wordpress.com/2015/06/19/is-it-me-or-is-this-year-a-bit-quiet/

Let’s see if reverse psychology works on this guy. 

Well when people deceive, have deceived, and having seen it firsthand, funny how facts aren’t “nice.” Sometimes, as I am with this guy, I am tired of being nice. I won’t even go into his junk science film.

But ignoring the habitual hoaxers is a mistake. It allows them to build steam, and invalidates Tenet 4. That’s why we do it. And if it’s not everyone’s cup of tea, I understand. They’ll be other blogs on other days.

I am not writing this blog for glory or popularity and definitely not money. I write this because it is how I feel and fulfillment of Tenet 4.

Mind you I do appreciate all the kind words over the years of me giving you my thoughts and calling them like I see them.

This blog is “Thoughts from the Squatchdetective,” so I get not everyone appreciates every thing I write. But what I do know is that some appreciate all, some appreciate some, and probably some appreciate none.


Squatchdetective Radio Update:

Hey folks apologies to all, but Beyond Borders Paranormal Radio Network, has experienced severe technical difficulties resulting in the suspension of all network shows until a better delivery platform can be arranged. We thought originally this would be a shorter hiatus than it has been, but everyone hold tight, we’ll be back soon enough.  — Steve & Chris

The Passing of a Legend…

By now most in the Bigfoot community have heard about the passing of author, researcher and true gentleman John Green. It was truly a privilege to have him on Squatchdetective Radio in January of 2007, some nine years ago. How time has flown.

I could go into the books he wrote or his accomplishments in the Bigfoot research field…but it seems quite redundant to me as every other blog on Bigfoot research has reiterated a lot of the same. So let me take a slightly different tack.

JWG

John Green (1927-2016)

What we don’t usually attribute to a researcher, let alone one we consider one of the forefather’s of modern day Sasquatch research, is that there is a life outside of the research realm. Many of these things did not come to light to many until they read his obituary.

John was a loving husband, a father to 5, a grand-father to 13 and a great-grandfather to 12. John was also a mayor, councilman, and volunteered for the Boy Scouts the Fire Department, the Search and Rescue Team and belonged to the Lions Club, known for its charity work and in 2000 was recognized as the British Columbia Senior of the Year aside from his accolades within the Bigfoot research community.

So when we think of John Green, let us not just remember him for the great books and magnificent foundation on which to base our research upon, but remember him a community leader who cared about people, history, being responsible for preserving a building as a historical site and as a family man.

Let us also celebrate the man who went about his accomplishments without bravado, braggadocio, or much ado, a temperament which is a rarity in today’s field. Always a gentleman he was. A man many of wish all we could aspire to walk a similar path.

To John… I am and always will be humbled by your work and the manner in which you conducted it. Safe journeys, and now you probably know all there is about the creature you so fervently pursued in your youth, and kept the search alive in many newcomers over the years myself included.

Definition of Irony

I understand Mr. Biscardi had a show on his weekly program, Bigfoot Live Radio, that featured a segment on Rick Dyer yesterday by interviewing former Bigfoot Tracker Veep, BJ Brashears.

I figured since I’ve been the

Well needless to say there were audio issues with the program so I never got to hear it.

Tonight I was looking around for the archive version finding humor in this whole thought of Biscardi putting the digs into Dyer, when I discovered that The SFBI Facebook page had a link to a Bigfoot “Hall of Fame.”

Ironic

Left the day after Biscardi had a Radio show outing Dyer.

Maybe Tom was flattered that his picture was prominently displayed amongst others like Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Derek Randles and Loren Coleman, all great folks in my opinion. But I also noticed Rick Dyer was there. And Todd Standing.

I also noticed it was a Wix page.

So my curiosity went up and ran the Whois on the page on the site.

Guess who owns it???

 

Guess Who

Dyer’s Personal information has been censored.

Now that’s my definition of irony!!!!

 


Squatch-D Radio Back!!!!

Chris Bennett and I are so glad to be back on the airwaves at Beyond Borders Paranormal Radio Network. Visit our other sister shows there as well!!!

Our guest lineup is filling fast and we are booked until June. More guest announcements this week.

We’re also excited to be doing an “Out of the Box” show every third Sunday of the month, featuring a guest on topics other than our hairy friends.


Upcoming stuff…

Tomorrow night I will be going on the Giant’s Bigfoot Radio program for an hour long discussion on Sasquatch and who knows what other topics may come up.

Next Friday I will be on Scarefest Radio, talking about last years Scarefest 8 and this years Scarefest 9, where they’ve already announced one of my favorite actors, Malcolm McDowell, will be appearing.

Of course, on May 6th, 7th and 8th,  I am excited and super stoked to be a participant in the 2016 Pennsylvania Bigfoot Camping Adventure.

They’ll be a screening of The Beast of Whitehall and special guest from Mountain Monsters, John “Trapper” Tice. (Yes we know folks, its television so chillax. Be fun to meet the guy and have a few laughs). Even Squatch-D can let his hair down once in a while… (okay I know…what hair!)

This year seems a bit strange to me. For the first time in several years nothing major was going on. No Ketchum Project, No Sierra Shooting style news, the Sykes project is pretty much finished. Kind of sitting here twiddling my thumbs waiting for the “next big thing.”

Nonetheless the field team and I did stretch our legs a bit this year however, although nothing at all to report we had a wonderful time and getting out there with one of our Western NY folks Mike!

                 20150523_11323720150523_125908

We have gotten a trickle of sightings reports coming in, and we are actively investigating this long term situation. We visited the property and are extremely excited at the prospect of obtaining some evidence.

 


Air time!!!

Radio2

We are now looking for guests for Squatchdetective Radio as we go to a whole new user friendly format.

We will no longer be a live format show, unfortunately because of schedules and finding a network host that could work for us. We just couldn’t make a live show work since our hiatus, so we’ve gone to this more polished format.

We may however once a month or so do a Google Hangout Free for all… Be kind of cool to see who just may show up!

Chris Bennett and I look forward to getting on with getting on!! If anyone is interested on being a guest, just drop me a line at radio@squatchdetective.com.


Legal Beagle… On to the BS D’jour!

On Thursday, May 14th, 2015 I received a “nasty-gram” in my email from Biscardi attorney and Biscardi business partner, Dennis Kazubowski.

It started with this wonderful quip…

“On March 25, 2008, you signed a Limited Association Agreement with Searching for Bigfoot Inc. which is attached to this letter. According to the document you signed, you agreed to hold in confidence any information gathered and further agreed not to disclose or reveal to any person or entity any information discovered under the agreement without the express prior written consent of the other parties.”

                              -Letter to Steve Kulls from Biscardi attorney, Dennis Kazubowski 5/14/15

 

Well I did sign a Limited Association Agreement for a single expedition on March 25, 2008 which would serve as my last outing as a contractor with Biscardi.

I find it a bit odd that an attorney would list this as the first salvo in an attempt to have me remove my Blog and Hall of Shame pages on Biscardi and his activities.

Because this is what the confidentiality agreement ACTUALLY said…

“The parties to this agreement agree to HOLD IN CONFIDENCE any information gathered from this expedition and further not to disclose or reveal any person or entity or any information disclosed under this agreement…”

 

He kind of left out the whole, from this expedition,” part. Since I revealed nothing about my last expedition with SFBI part on my Website or Blog… that’s out.

The confidentiality clause was part of a LIMITED agreement, clearly defined and stated within the agreement.

As far as the Hall of Shame Page, my book “Fifty Large,” both California, and New York have a ONE year statute of limitation on defamation claims. Nevada, the State in which Biscardi’s enterprises have filed there incorporations has a two year statute. Since the Hall of Shame Page came out in 2010 and Fifty Large in 2011, they’re out as fair game for any consideration for defamation.

As far as libel, defamation, what have I said that was not backed up by fact?

That Biscardi was involved in the 2008 hoax? The other two hoaxers implicated him.

It was his words and actions and statements (everyone remember “touched it, felt it, smelled it, on Fox News?”) put his responsibility in question.

Why didn’t he sue Dyer and Whitton? In “Not Typical Bigfoot Movie,” Biscardi stated he would sue anyone that would hoax him?

Another element in a defamation case is a falsity with malice or malicious intent.  The latest blog I had posted simple facts and what a cited source had told me.

Biscardi claiming to see a video of your truly riding ATV’s with two hoaxers, as proof I had set him up, when no such video exists because it never happened; THAT is defamation.

Reporting facts, citing sourced information and analysis of such facts is NOT defamation or libel.

Editorial license, is also not defamation nor libel when there is evidence and actions to bring up reasonable questioning. Even parody when it pertains to public figures, (which Biscardi is rest assuredly) as long it does not blur the lines of truth.

It is a fact that Biscardi set up a foreign company with a man under indictment who subsequently plead guilty, for a Ponzi Scheme,who was the former CFO for Searching for Bigfoot.

David A. Nilsen (Source: Monterey County Weekly.com)

In fact the Monterey County Weekly called Nilsen, “Monterey’s Madoff.” In reference to convicted Ponzi schemer, Bernie Madoff.

Nilsen was indicted on September 8th, 2009 and the indictment was unsealed on September 10th, 2009 after he had surrendered to authorities in San Jose. Nilsen subsequently pled guilty in a plea bargain in Oct. 24th, 2011 and received a sentence of 97 months, in 2012. (Source: FBI.gov)

Very clear from the Nevada Department of State, this Foreign Corporation headed by Nilsen and Biscardi, was clearly after Nilsen’s indictment (June 8th, 2010). It’s status was revoked, however I am unclear of the reasoning behind the revocation, and it could have been something as simple as a missed filing.

File date: June 8th, 2010, some 9 months after Nilsen’s indictment. (Source: Nevada Dept. of State)

20150619_190056

Over 250 pages of police reports, public records and an SFBI Business Plan given to me from Rick Dyer which he had gotten from Biscardi.  (Source: Steve Kulls)

My personal opinion of Biscardi, is irrelevant, I do not go on this blog, my sites or other Podcasts and speak untruth without the evidence to back such up about anyone.

And I am not bullied so easily, especially when I lined my ducks up carefully. That’s my profession. My suggestion; “Don’t poke this bear.”


On the road again…

What a year it has been so far! I didn’t get the chance to get out to Salt Fork this year due to work commitments but did do the yearly Cabela’s Rare Strange and Unusual Sightings Weekend in March.

This year I am happy to add two more dates to the speaking line up:

August 21st – 23rd, 2015: Carnival of Parahorror

495 Paderewski Drive
Buffalo, NY 14212

1425406

 

September 11th – 13th, 2015 Scarefest 8
