Larry Sinclair: welfare recipient?

The ridiculous details outlined here, along with the hilarious article in Globe, lead me to believe that this is all just another amatuer Sinclair Swift Boat attempt. Considering how he has failed not one, but two lie detector tests on the claims, and uh, attempted to hit up YouTube users for cash, the man becomes more and more ridiculous by the minute. Larry is pressing on, of course, with a whole new set of conspiracy theories, but considering the fact that the polygraph was his own challenge, and he failed his own challenge, it’s time to let this rest.

The man who claims to have done all sorts of things with Senator Barack Obama in the back of a limo in 1999 in Chicago, after meeting him in, of course, an “upscale lounge”, and taking him back to his hotel (the $50 a night Comfort Inn and Suites), has now filed a “civil rights” case against Barack Obama, David Axelrod, and the DNC, based on, what he calls “attempts to slander and intimidate” him.

Based on what, you ask?

Let’s hear it from Larry as stated on

I have not ignored any request for facts supporting my claims about obama. I have refused to turn over information to the internet warriors who somehow feel I owe them something. In response to the attempt to call me a liar about the smears on the official DNC site I provide you the following link
I also would like to say that comingawakening is posting videos making claims that he know what day I met Obama, and what day the navy graduation took place only all of his claimed FACTS were totally made up by him and I had to correct him.

So, uh, just to get this straight, random dude who posted a blog and message board post (that anyone can sign up for) is David Axelrod in disguise? So, who am I, Larry? Michelle Obama?

It gets better, though. As it turns out, the address listed on the court filings is for an “elderly assisted care” facility in Duluth, MN.

A section 236 HUD housing complex for the elderly and handicapped.

See p. 12 of the HUD report for Minnesota housing:

Gateway Tower
Units: 154
Occupancy Eligibility: Elderly and Handicapped

Larry’s own words:

What is Section 236?

Section 236 Program


HUD subsidizes the interest payments on mortgages for rental or cooperative housing owned by private nonprofit or limited-profit landlords and rented to low-income tenants.


Section 236 of the National Housing Act, 12 U.S.C.A. ยง 1715z-1

Sorry, Larry. You’ll have to excuse us if we don’t find your claims credible. You claim to have been a high-rolling drug dealer, raking in tons of cash, and the only thing that has been proven is that you live in welfare housing.

In response to the question: You said you had “bank statements bigger than most of us make in our lifetimes,” Larry said:

So, then, it’s your classic case of millionaire drug-dealer-riches-to-rags story. Didn’t Dickens write that?

This doesn’t help your claim that you’re “not after money” in the least bit, particularly considering that you jumped all over’s $100,000 offer to give you a lie detector test.

Larry isn’t happy that this information is now public, and as a result, he’s accusing me of calling him and placing death threats. As well as accusing me of being every single YouTube user who doesn’t believe him (which is most of them).

I have not called your ass, and I will not call your ass! No matter how much you beg! I’m perfectly satisfied with making fun of your ass online. No need to listen to your gibberish on the phone.

The latest, and most hilarious claim to date, is that Sinclair’s statements have been “proven” through the use of what they’re calling “Reverse Speech Analysis.” That’s right, folks! BACKMASKING! The very same technology that was used to play rock albums backwards to reveal their hidden Satanic agendas! Remember when Electric Light Orchestra was exposed for recruiting legions of youths into the army of Satan? Same thing, folks. The government is mind controlling us by subliminal backwards messages in their speeches!

I’ve gotta give it to you guys. Every time I think you’ve hit the absolute KOOK ceiling, you raise the bar!

Larry is threatening to sue me. He’s pissed at me for saying he’s on welfare. Mr. Sinclair, you are going around telling everyone that you are on DISABILITY. WHAT in the bloody hell do you think disability is? A WELFARE program!

Larry is now blabbering on that I have been trying to sell this story to tabloids. Larry, the tabloids aren’t any more interested in the “Larry Sinclair is on welfare” story, any more than they are interested in your other stories. So, just for good measure, I have offered to donate any funds received from this story to CHARITY. I will even let Larry pick the charity (so long as it matches up to a real charity).

Larry refused to accept my challenge to him to donate 100% of all funds paid to him by to charity in the following comments that you can find reading through here:

So, Larry. It’s time for a confession. You ARE in it for the money!

More disinformation, folks: Larry’s army has been all excited about someone in the mainstream media “finally” picking this story up: The Cleveland Leader. HOORAY. The “oppression” is over! Or, is it?

According to Wikipedia, “The Cleveland Leader” merged with the Cleveland Plain Dealer in 1917. The Cleveland Leader was once a mighty paper, in the 1800s. But there is no “Cleveland Leader” listed in this list of Ohio newspapers.

Not to mention, the site appears to have but two reporters: “Julie” and “ Sorry kids, but it looks like the MSM conspiracy continues! And the folks blowing that site up for reporting this without proof, settle your asses down! It’s not a real paper. It’s JUST A BLOG.

Seriously, people, each new twist and turn just further makes it look more and more like a giant internet hoax. Of course the media won’t report it, because they’d be target #1 of such a hoax..
