This Vanity Fair story really struck me because this is exactly Kodiak’s m.o. Also this guy who ruined Ms. Melngailis’s life is named Anthony Strangis and went by “Mr. Fox.” Kodiak calls himself “the Silver Fox,” and also has called himself “Strange” and “Stranger” – which is Traveler Talk for alien and/or outsider. “Strang -is” is certainly consistent and would be Kodiak claiming he “is Strange.” Click the link above for the VF story (not everyone who reads our blog understands how this stuff works).
I’ve also pegged Kodiak and Bea to Marshall Applewhite and Bonnie Nettles (“Do and Ti” aka “Bo and Peep”), the Heaven’s Gate guy and gal, based on their practices, influence, and more importantly their stated beliefs and the way they are communicated on the Heaven’s Gate website using typical Traveler Talk. I’ll break that down later. Same assholes though, over and over again.
Kodiak can jump into and remotely control any person. Kodiak also has been uploaded here on our “Earth” hundreds of times, more or less. So lots of fucked up human beings are “placeholders” for Kodiak, including OJ Simpson, Donald Trump, Ariel Castro, Saddam Hussein, Bill Cosby, David Carradine, some other guys who have moved through my life, and now this guy Anthony Strangis.
Kodiak is “immortal” because he can jump around from human body to human body. We honestly don’t know if he is a hybrid of human and Grey alien, or simply a Grey alien hiding behind a human soul. Kodiak is a serial killer and hideous rapist and this woman in this story should be relieved she wasn’t killed. On the other hand, once you have him in your life, you will be dealing with “supernatural forces” for the rest of your life.
They are not supernatural. But Kodiak and Psyche use advanced technology and a time machine to accomplish things that seem very much like magic. Moreover, we are living in a simulation and so any sort of magical activity can be written into the Code that rules our existence here.
Anyway, this guy is Kodiak. Strangis promised this Ms. Melngailis that her dog would become immortal. He may have explained that that occurs by moving the dogs soul into another dog at the dog’s death. They can do that. Kodiak insists to me that my mother’s dog is his “immortal” dog that travels with him from loop to loop. Meaning when one time loop is blown up, the dog’s soul is moved to another dog in another time loop.
Four games of Kodiak’s and Bea’s (Psyche) I see at work here in this woman’s life:
- Make the target spend all of her money and every drop of available borrowed money on frivolous stuff to leave them helpless.
- Alienate the target from friends and family to leave them isolated, broke, and dependant on them for “further instructions.”
- Commit some sort of crime to enhance the isolation and sometimes they tell you that you must do it to prove you are “in it to win it.”
- Promise immortality and eternal prosperity for yourself and your close pets, friends or family members, if only the target will give up their worldly possessions, commit some crime they choose, or become a sex-slave for their pals to “prove themselves.”
To Ms. Melngailis, if you see this, and hopefully you will. Kodiak and Psyche likely will never leave you alone. You will hear voices of them or others talking directly into your head, or you will see “magical signs from above” directing you to take this action or that. Do not dig yourself further into a hole. I am sorry for you that they have hold of you. They have ruined the lives of many friends and family of ours as well.
They can travel in time and harm people you care about. They can jump into and control any human being and that person does not notice at the time. So your own mother could start saying weird, uncharacteristic or threatening things to you. They do all of this.
You and anyone else – are welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will keep your thoughts as confidential as I can. Be aware that Psyche, Bea, Nymph and Kodiak can see everything I do, and everything you do, and can hear even your internal thoughts. In fact much of the time they are your internal thoughts. And this is how that loser grabbed you in the first place and wrecked your life. You’ve been “Bill Cosby’d” by remote! It’s true. Try to keep your thoughts straight and realize that weird thoughts are not your own, especially petty nonsensical thoughts such as “that woman is fat!” directed at someone in the grocery store next to you that you otherwise would not have given any thought to one way or the other. It is mind control. You likely will not prove this in court. And you likely never will be rid of these people who can only be likened to a sexually-transmitted disease. My heart goes out to you. Hera
Here’s the VF story below but at some point they’ll ask me to take it down for copyright reasons. Hopefully VF, CN will just suck it up for awhile because it is important that this “target” and others with similar experiences understand who it really is that is targeting them. To VF/CN – these people can hack your story or use the time machine to rewrite whatever they want. So I put the whole story here so that I remember to look at it again over time and see if any of the text has changed. When it is just a link I forget to go back to it. (Most people don’t notice when they change text, not sure why I do but it probably has something to do with me being David’s wife).
It was a severe comedown. During Melngailis’s stint in the Sevier County Jail, where she was held for nine days before being transferred to Rikers, some of her female cellmates taunted her, asking if it was true that vegans taste better. Their nickname for her was Sweet Pussy. But to former employees who used to call her Sarmama for turning the workplace into a surrogate family, and social-media followers who lusted after her vegan-deluxe life of tight dresses, biodynamic wines, TV appearances, and customers such as Tom Brady and Chelsea Clinton, the unanswered questions have been how Melngailis got involved with Strangis and why she stayed.
“I don’t know how she got mixed up with Anthony,” Strangis’s own stepmother, Ellie Strangis, said. “A woman like her—what did she see in Anthony?”
“Sarma lost her mind,” said the novelist Porochista Khakpour, a close friend. “She really believed that her dog would live forever.”
A source close to Melngailis describes a scenario in which Strangis resorted to cult-like techniques, including gaslighting, sleep deprivation, and sexual humiliation, to control her. (Strangis, through his court-appointed attorney, Samuel Karliner, denied all these allegations but did not elaborate on his denials in responding to 80 questions from Vanity Fair.) Perhaps if you can understand how a sane, successful businesswoman comes to believe the insane idea that her dog can live forever, everything else snaps into focus—how that person might be accused of bilking her investors of $844,000, owe her employees more than $40,000 in unpaid wages, financially strip her restaurant, and now find herself awaiting trial, with a potential 15-year sentence. She had thought all harm would be magically reversed, just as Leon’s life span would be extended, according to her camp.
The arrest was a cold wake-up. After a court hearing in August, she spoke in a monotone, as if emerging, stunned, from a bunker: “Everything I worked for, and everything I cared most about, except Leon, is gone.”

MR. AND MRS. FOX
As a relationship with a man 13 years her junior was fraying in 2010, Melngailis met Alec Baldwin, at her restaurant, and accompanied him to a staged reading of Moby Dick in the Hamptons. He soon confided in late-night conversations how much he wanted a wife and children. Her advice to the actor was to get a dog. He resisted, but she became obsessed with the online photo of a red-nosed, brown pit bull named Quinn at a shelter in Brooklyn. “One night I woke up crying at like 4am,” she wrote in another blog entry. “My boyfriend woke up too and asked me what was wrong. I told him, ‘It’s Quinn.’ ”
She adopted him. Heartbroken when the boyfriend left, she had her puppy, renaming him Leon. “She wasn’t someone who dated a lot of people,” Baldwin told me. “She worked at the restaurant, did the books, went home, and passed out with her dog.”
After Baldwin met his future wife, Hilaria Thomas, at Pure Food and Wine, in 2011, he set up a Twitter account for her. One of Hilaria’s first followers was a clever guy with the handle @DiscipleOfTodd, who’d already been interacting with @AlecBaldwin. “At the beginning it seemed like this fun thing,” Hilaria recalled. “He seemed nice. He used to make us laugh.” Soon, @Sarma was following this fellow who used various humorous names, including Mr. Fox and Mr. LongBottoms.
Mr. Fox seemed to know just what to tweet to win @Sarma’s heart. On October 28, 2011, Melngailis blew a Twitter kiss to Mr. Fox (@UKnowUWant_It) for guessing why she named her dog Leon—even though she’d posted on her easily searchable blog a year earlier that it was from Léon: The Professional, the Luc Besson film about a hit man. “I ❤ anyone who guesses. usually i get ‘like, Kings of Leon?’ ”
According to Melngailis’s camp, Mr. Fox was Strangis, perhaps using Twitter to play six degrees of Alec Baldwin, figuring that somewhere in the actor’s orbit was someone valuable. (Strangis’s attorney denies that his client used these Twitter handles or aliases, or that he insinuated himself into Baldwin’s circle.) If so, the ploy worked. On November 12, Melngailis tweeted, “Mrs Fox be in love with Mr Fox. Can’t be helped.”

When she would protest about his plans, the source recalled, he’d say such tantrums risked knocking them off course, and asked if she’d properly taken her antidepressant, Wellbutrin, and told her she shouldn’t trust her memory, because of Ambien. He said he could tell at a glance if people were “red shirts” (bad) or “blue shirts” (good). He began to tell Melngailis that some of her family and employees were red shirts. (Strangis’s attorney denies this.) At the apple orchard that Melngailis’s mother, Susan H. Jasse, owns and runs in New Hampshire, Strangis told Jasse that he needed funds to help Melngailis, according to Jasse’s attorney, Patrick Brackley. After all, she’d had an abortion, was bulimic, and was on antidepressants. “The poor mother came to believe based on what he was saying that if he didn’t get the money for Sarma she would have a nervous breakdown,” said Brackley, adding that his client took around $450,000 out of a trust to help her daughter. (Strangis’s attorney denies his client made this request or received any money.)
A source close to Melngailis said that Strangis told Melngailis that the money she was lending him (and that he had still not paid back) was one of a series of cosmic endurance tests similar to a series he had passed years earlier. Passing meant vast rewards. “He convinced me I’d be empowered in ways I couldn’t imagine,” Melngailis explained. “I would have access to unlimited resources so that I could grow my brand all over the world, make the documentary I always wanted to make—the one that would finally change people’s ways and help eradicate factory farming. Basically, I could do all the world-changing things I’d been quietly dreaming about. I could help whoever I want, and stay young forever doing it.” (Strangis’s attorney denies these allegations.)
Another test she allegedly had to pass was giving Strangis oral sex while blindfolded, which Strangis denies, even though, as he gained weight, she was becoming repulsed by him. Unlike Melngailis, he was not a vegan. He apparently loved junk food—Subway tuna-salad sandwiches with extra mayo, for instance. A source close to Melngailis said that he told her that dealing with his obesity was a test, as was the humiliation, for her, of repeatedly asking strangers to invest in her struggling company. Another test involved his moving many of her possessions to a storage unit. The bill went unpaid, and Melngailis’s photos, clothes, and journals were sold at auction. (Strangis’s attorney denies this account.)
Meanwhile, he allegedly let her know that he and his nameless brother were constantly watching. Once, according to a source close to Melngailis, he phoned a raw-food restaurant in Los Angeles, where she was dining. She had not informed him where she was. Staffers alerted Melngailis that “Mr. Fox” was on the line. (Strangis’s attorney denies that his client was involved in this incident.) According to Melngailis’s camp, he would warn her that, if she did not continue to pass tests, forces controlled by his brother would “gut” him and come for her. He told her that Leon had been his dog in a previous life. They’d all been headed toward one another for a thousand years, through past lifetimes, and if she did as he said, “among the things I’d be granted,” Melngailis said, “Leon would also be immortal and safe to be by my side for eternity.” (Strangis’s attorney denies this account.)
During a visit to New York around May of 2015, Strangis’s half-sister McKaila Coulter said, she overheard Melngailis yelling, “You ruined my life!” and “Everyone thinks I’m crazy because of you!” But Melngailis wasn’t yelling for outside help. She was yelling for his, still wanting to know when his alleged promises for financial and emotional deliverance would come true.
If the facts are as the Melngailis camp claims, what she has suffered may be an example of what is called “coercive control,” a form of domestic violence that can manifest as a cult of one, with a spouse as brainwashed follower. “What they are basically trying to do is to close out the options so you are completely dependent on them for your sense of reality,” said Evan Stark, a professor emeritus at Rutgers, and the author of the 2007 study Coercive Control: How Men Entrap Women in Personal Life.
I spoke by phone with Strangis, who is in prison on Rikers Island, awaiting trial because he has not come up with the $300,000 bond. His voice was confiding and sweet, like a little boy’s. But in three calls he placed to me, he never answered any questions on the record, and very few off. And there are still so many questions: Was the money gambled away or stashed? What exactly was the couple running from? Was someone threatening to “gut” Strangis? Karliner, the court-appointed lawyer, said Strangis is guilty only of liking gambling and having a rich wife in Melngailis, who indulged him and had her own expensive appetites. “No jury is going to look at her and say, ‘Oh, poor her, she was taken advantage of,’ ” Karliner told me. “She doesn’t have that history. She was too savvy a businesswoman.” But what about the claims that Strangis used coercive control to extract money and make Melngailis believe he had supernatural powers? If she were his client, Karliner said, he would put the kibosh on that: “I’ve got 12 people looking at her thinking, You’ll say anything for us to say, ‘Not guilty.’ Do you think we’re stupid?”
But Melngailis’s lawyers, Sheila Tendy and César de Castro, say they are, in fact, considering a coercive-control defense. Although there is no specific law criminalizing it in the United States, there is one in the United Kingdom (as of December 2015), which punishes “coercive and controlling behavior in an intimate or family relationship” by up to five years in prison. (Coercive control was a prominent plot point this year in the BBC radio soap opera The Archers, with a character being described as “the worst kind of abuser, because he doesn’t leave bruises.”) According to Stark, it has worked as a defense strategy. He said that up to 25 percent of domestic-abuse cases involve patterns of psychological control without physical violence.
A decade ago, men went nuts for Neil Strauss’s book The Game, about pickup artists, tantalized that there were mind-control tricks like “negging”—using vaguely insulting compliments in order to undermine self-esteem—to turn beautiful women into bedded putty. A coercive-control defense would indicate that Strangis had taken The Game to its extreme. Tendy told me, “He combined the best techniques of cult leaders—abusive partner control, manipulation, and con artist—along with the worst tactics of prosperity theology, meaning, When you give me your money, you’ll get 10 times back next week.” Karliner says that such claims make “her even freakier than him.”
