Now INDICTED John Strand and Simone Gold
Includes February 7, 2021 Five Count INDICTMENT
Do you remember years ago a person by the name of Orly Taitz? She was a dentist, a lawyer, and sometimes real estate agent. She made a name for herself as the self appointed Queen of the Birther Movement and trafficked in countless conspiracies. It’s like Groundhog Day, redux
Dr & Esq Simone Melissa Gold (Orly Taitz 2.0)
On January 19, 2021 a local CBS News Affiliate in Los Angeles, CA reported that the FBI had arrested three individuals from Beverly Hills, including Gina Bisignano1 a Beverly Hills salon owner, John Herbert Strand and Simone Melissa Gold, for their participation in the January 6, 2021 deadly insurrection
Before the Jan 2021 Insurrection, which catapulted both “Dr” Simone Gold and Strand into Internet infamy. Both were very loud, very proud and very unapologetic Hydroxychloroquine propagandist. Gold’s organization America’s Frontline Doctors, John Herbert Strand purportedly is the spokesperson for this organization.
Sidebar - in an effort to refrain from contributing to the proliferation of disinformation and misinformation on the internet, I am making the conscious decision and will refrain from embedding or otherwise hyperlinking to her various claims on her website(s). But I may include archived links to her various websites. The only caveat, from time to time I will link to reputable organizations like FactCheck.org, which has a running file debunking Gold’s claim, found here. And Snopes.com which also has numerous entries debunking some of Gold’s claims, found here, her Covid-19 claims found here and here
January 15, 2021 archive
February 7, 2021 archive notice the “new” button?
In the twenty (20) days since the Gold/Strand Criminal complaint was unsealed. Gold has raised $93,965.00 for her newly created “The legal Defense Fund” (archived) - based on preliminary research of both Gold’s and Strand’s Twitter accounts, it appears the “defense fund” link was added to her website on or about January 29, 2021. Still a $93+K defend fund haul seems like “grifters gotta grift”
Sidebar - while John Strand purports to be the Communications Director for America’s Frontline Doctors, he is not listed on the Organization’s website, archive found here and here. Oddly he does have his own website also archived found here and here
John Herbert Strand & Simone Gold and their Twitter Accounts
Oddly Twitter has yet to suspend Strand’s account @TheJohnStrand, full Twitter account archive found here. Nor has Twitter suspended @DrSimoneGold, full Twitter Account archive, found here. Gold’s Twitter account which tweets a prolific amount of disinformation and misinformation specifically concerning COVID-19.
Gold’s Twitter account (has repeatedly) violated Twitter’s updated Terms of Service, specifically COVID-19 misleading information policy and yet she continues to tweet misinformation and solicitation of donations. Pity that I can’t @ both Strand and Gold on Twitter to inform each of them that they are now facing a five count Federal Indictment (docketed on February 7th), forgive me, I digress.
Gold/Strand a/k/a Bonnie & Clyde Insurrectionist Jan Affidavit
The affidavit goes on to cited two specific tweets from Strand’s Twitter account. Pages 5 & 6, paragraph 12, specific tweet archived here
Pages 6 & 7, paragraph 18, specific tweet archived here
The most troubling section of the affidavit can be found on page 8, paragraph 21, the affiant details what they observed after watching the video posted Video to Getty Images database.
One of the officers, who had been pinned near the doors to the Capitol, appears to be pulled down by someone in the crowd and lands near where STRAND and GOLD were standing.
Gold/Strand Relevant Court Documents:
January 18, 2021 GOLD/STRAND Complaint
Current Docket Report below, for now I believe you should be caught up on the Bonnie & Clyde insurrectionist. By all reasonable appearances both Strand and Gold have used COVID-19 and the Insurrection as one giant grift
Grifters gotta Grift via PPP Loans
As previously reported, Gold has received multiple PPP & EIDL Loans. Which is odd because as a tax payer I am aghast that she had access to this COVID-19 financial program. Based on preliminary research it is actually unclear if she is actually practicing medicine. I pulled down a few California State Corporation Commission (CA SCC) filings;
C4050138 SIMONE GOLD INC <—notice that it’s an “Inc” versus a “LLC” those tiny details are actually important because 1) there is no such Company “Simone Gold, LLC” on file with the CA SCC and 2) I quadruple checked
Simone Gold, LLC/PPP Loan Bailout
10411 Ventura Boulevard Suite 302 Los Angeles, CA91423
Loan Date: 2020-06-18 and Loan Amount: $20,833
Lender: Merchants Commercial Bank
Simone Gold MD EIDL/PPP Loan
14011 Ventura Blvd Ste 302 Sherman Oaks, CA 91423
Loan Date: 2020-06-24 and PPP/EIDL Amount: $132,800
It is unclear if Simone Gold currently practices medicine, her previous business address; 501 S Buena Vista St, Burbank, CA 91505, now shows up as “permanently closed”. Assuming that her LinkedIn Profile is accurate, I am unable to locate any hospital or emergency room “privileges”
Currently I work as an emergency physician on the frontlines whether or not there is a pandemic. My clinical work serves all Americans: from urban-inner city, to suburban, to the IHS.
Incidentally Gold’s WebMD information has been 404’d. Interesting that on August 20, 2020 Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center, issued the following Statement regarding Dr. Simone Gold, which reads in part:
Dr. Simone Gold is not a member of the medical staff at any Providence hospital and her practice is not located on any Providence campus. Although Dr. Gold was a member of the hospital’s medical staff over a decade ago, Dr. Gold was never employed at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center.
Bonnie and Clyde Insurrectionist appear to be running multiple grifts. Unclear why neither are in Federal Custody. Hope Springs Eternal, right?
because of the voluminous docket activity as to Defendant Gina Bisignano, I decided to create a separate article (which will be published shortly)
