UPDATE: Why Would @NicoleBonnet1 and @_Lazarus___ Be Threatening Me?

Posted on | July 6, 2016 | 43 Comments


After I described Thomas Mix’s Florida lawsuit against Jeanette Runyon, suddenly Mix’s Twitter account (@_Lazarus___) began chattering away with @NicoleBonnet1 in a manner that some people might interpret as threatening and conspiring to harm me. Anyone may search the Twitter archives to discover how closely allied these two characters are.

Please, read what I wrote about the case this morning, and see if you can find any legitimate cause for Nicole Bonnet to threaten me, except that I brought attention to Thomas Mix’s lawsuit. What this tells me is that Thomas Mix does not want anyone to pay attention to his lawsuit. Why?

Well, I wrote an email to Mr. Mix’s attorney:

Dear Mr. Rooney:
This morning, I reported on your client Thomas Mix’s lawsuit against Jeanette Runyon. To the best of my knowledge, the conflict between them dates to 2013, when Mr. Mix was advocating on behalf of Kaitlyn Hunt in a sexual abuse case that attracted nationwide media attention. I was among the handful of writers who followed the Hunt case to its final conclusion, and I also reported on the “Free Kate” movement, with which your client Mr. Mix was apparently aligned. While I had not previously noticed the legal proceedings between your client and Ms. Runyon (as the Hunt story was over and done with, as far as I was concerned), when it was brought to my attention, I wrote about this lawsuit in the belief that it was both newsworthy, per se, and relevant to other recent news involving claims of online “harassment.” This afternoon (Wednesday, July 6), I became aware that your client’s response to my notice of his lawsuit was to make comments on his Twitter account that could be construed as threats to harm me, threats in which he appeared to conspire with a person who goes by the name “Nicole Bonnet” on Twitter.
Although it has been my lifelong habit to avoid litigation, it strikes me that your client’s apparent threats against me could be cited as evidence that his actions against Ms. Runyon are intended to stifle First Amendment rights to free expression. Your client’s lawsuit is a matter of public record, and I am free to discuss the facts of the case and to share my opinion. Having spent more than 30 years in the journalism business, I am absolutely certain that nothing I have written could be considered libelous. The truth is always a sound defense against any such claim, and I have written nothing false about your client. If it is the intention of your client to pursue legal action against me, let him do so forthwith, for I am confident that truth and justice will always prevail over malicious lies.
While I am not a lawyer, and therefore cannot advise you of your duty as an attorney, it certainly seems to me that Mr. Mix’s recent behavior, evidently threatening me merely for taking notice of his lawsuit, might not be viewed favorably by the courts. Furthermore, as your client Mr. Mix apparently harbors some malicious intention of personal revenge against me, it would seem within your duty as an attorney to advise him not to engage in any action that might expose him to future legal jeopardy.
Please reply at your earliest convenience to acknowledge receipt of this message, for it is my sincere hope ever to remain
Your most humble and obedient servant,
Robert Stacy McCain

We shall see if Mr. Mix wishes to draw further attention to himself.

    The stupid burns. Thomas A Mix really believes that simply posting about him is not allowed.

    I suspect that Mr. Mix may be unaware of The Streisand Effect.

    Damn, Stacy, you sure do seem to attract all the kooks!

    I wouldn’t worry too much. They seem to be threatening a transgender person (Isn’t that was the “girl” in quotes is about? ;^)) named Stacey.

    And lunatics like this is one more reason why I carry and recommend all my friends consider carrying too.

    This is America in 2016. If you aren’t ready to defend yourself and your loved ones, you aren’t paying attention to what the lunatics are actually doing.

    Until he can sing “like buttah” he should avoid the diva act.

    Why would @Nicolebonnet1 and @_Lazarus___ be threatening Robert Stacy McCain? @Nicolebonnet1 would be my answer. Nicole wants revenge on Stacy McCain for exposing her for defending a sexual predator and for being liar and a fraud. Since at least 2014, she has been telling Mix he should sue other people besides Ms. Runyon which includes Stacy McCain. In fact, she hints at another round of lawsuits coming from Mix every chance she gets. Nicole is the main driving force behind this idiocy because she knows how to manipulate and bend Mix to do her bidding. Maybe there should be a blog about @Nicolebonnet1 day. There is plenty to write about. Especially, when it comes to her getting people suspended on Twitter because of their 2nd Amendment beliefs. Nicole constantly demonstrates that if you are not of her persuasion, you should not have any 1st Amendment rights. And if you don’t conform to her way of thinking she will sic her special snowflake on you.

    Stacy, you should contact Allum Bokhari at Breitbart about Twitter censoring your account. He’s been writing about this, and has had success with accounts being reinstated.

    Ohhh, its just like a real threat only much, much smaller..

    Which is similar to a line my mothers friend used on a flasher, ruthlessly deflating for the chap shall we say.

    I do think this will fall into the “Play a stupid game, win a stupid prize” for the rapist lovers though.

    While the Kimber series are nice, they’re a bit out of my price range. The Ruger LCP is a nice pistol. I’ve got the LC9, which I absolutely love. It’s my usual carry piece.

    She thinks she is protected from legal harm because girl. This makes her an incessant provacateur. I would hold off on Mr. Mix, and focus as much of my efforts as could be spared on Nicole. She’s not expecting blowback, and this might well make her pull her puppet back.

    Don’t hold your breath, from what I can tell he hasn’t paid any attention to the particulars of this lawsuit. His pleadings are rote and canned; full of lies and contradictions.
