I couldn't agree more.  Cohen's publicity is highly coordinated which is why I've written his powerful publicists.  The ongoing criminal harassment is also highly coordinated.  That includes individuals aligned with Cohen writing and lying to IRS, FBI, DOJ, Treasury, FTB, FSB, Dennis Riordan, Kevin Huvane, Brian Lourde, and many others.  The dumber the narrative the better.  For instance, Cohen was NOT broke.  He personally borrowed or caused to be expended approximately $6.7 million in TH corporate assets.  He signed the Annuity Agreement and understood those amounts had to be repaid within 3 years at 6% interest.  He refuses to address this although it raises federal tax matters.  See Annuity Agreement attached for evidence supporting this fact.  Cohen had just received a $1 million advance from Sony; pursued a multi-million lithograph deal I was negotiating; planned to tour and was contractually obligated to do so.  He just came up with some sophomoric narrative.  Do you want to go to his concert?  Phil Spector and I personally believe he's a porn artist with biblical references.  That's a fact.  But, these awe inspired groupie journalists will say anything.  In fact, I've heard that editors understood Phil Spector was innocent but preferred to spin the gun story.  Here's a link the Cohen's three highly embellished versions of his gun stories about Phil Spector that are now before LA Superior Court.  

'I have no doubt that the entire situation with pumping up passions and anti-Russian feelings among the Western public is well-coordinated.'

In any event, as Phil Spector used to ask:  Is it dumb enough?

All the best,

Sunshine Sachs,

One of my main concerns is the damage to my sons.  See my son's declaration addressing the fact that the emails make him physically ill.  I would assume the slander does as well.

Please feel free to read through a transcript of Steven Machat and my conversation and excerpts from Machat's book that i wholeheartedly agree with.  People like Sylvie Simmons evidently do not care about the damage to my sons and family.  I am aware that awe inspired journalists will gratuitously regurgitate Leonard Cohen's highly fabricated stories about me, Phil Spector, Bay of Pigs, Yom Kippur War, and Janis Joplin.

Gods, Gangsters & Honour by Steven Machat

Leonard was desperate to get rid of this two managers, Judy Berger and Mary Martin, who he believed had stolen the rights to his songs and records early on in his career.  Even back then, Cohen was convinced that women were ripping him off.  He signed an agreement, and when he wanted to get rid of the contract, he accused everyone of ripping him off.  You could say it became repeat behaviour.  My father duly got rid of Berger and Martin, set up a new company called Stranger Music for Cohen and agreed to manage Leonard for 15% as well as 15% of Stranger.  The idea of the company was twofold:  one, to maintain ownership of the copyrights duly created; and two, to minimise Leonard’s exposure to American tax, just like any other rich individual trying to minimise their tax liabilities.  

I’ve no problem with people trying to avoid tax, but as the years have passed, I couldn’t help but smile at the apparent contradiction between Leonard’s public persona and his private business arrangements.  This was a supposedly devout Buddhist with no interest in material possessions, who was all the same happy to put his trust in business managers and companies he created with his knowledge and consent whose sole aim was to minimise tax liability.  

Leonard then sold Stranger Music for a small fortune and I’ve seen nothing from Cohen.

Cohen controlled his copyright, not my father.  The irony was that Cohen had total control over my father …  Do you know what happened to the $400,000 worth of bearer bonds in my father’s office?  Bearer bonds are just unregistered bonds or paper money that are used to conceal ownership and, with it, tax liabilities.  Cristini told me (who knows if this is true?) that he had found the bonds in my father’s office hours after he had died but the next day they disappeared.

Cohen denied any knowledge of these bonds.  I was unsure if they existed or were part of my father’s schemes cooked up to conceal Leonard’s money.  

Cohen said:  “Steven, you remember the 1988 tour?  Flemming extorted $100,000 from me.  He wanted 20% managerial commission, in addition to his promoter’s fees.  He thought he was doing extra work for me and wanted me to pay him.”

Far from being the poet of the spirits, Leonard was a hustler using Buddhism as a facade.  

The next time I would see Leonard … We’d just seen The Hand That Rocks The Cradle where Rebecca De Mornay plays the psychopathic nanny who stalks this family.  Who should walk along but Cohen, who was holding hands with DeMornay, his girlfriend at the time.  Cohen was extremely uncomfortable because he knew he had stolen from me and it was clear he couldn’t get away quick enough.  Neither could my son, because he took one look at DeMornay and ran.  He was terrified because he thought she was the nanny in the film!

It was clear that Leonard was also wary of me because, I guess, he thought I might be planning to sue him.

Lynch had been sending out long and bizarre emails to his friends, journalists, and the authorities denouncing Leonard for a million and one sins, which would have worried me if I was their target.

The whole scheme was so ridiculous [Leonard Cohen’s attempts to limit his liabilities on the deals] from the start.  All Leonard had to do to avoid U.S. taxes was tear up his green card, and stop living in and using the U.S. as his base.  

It’s no secret that Leonard has also made a killing on the art market by selling his paintings, plus his touring of the last two years … If that’s true, it doesn’t really tally with the clear implication from Cohen that he is a man who has been robbed of everything.

Leonard told me before I left that he had actually offered Kelley a settlement …

Ken Sunshine, Shawn Sachs, and Tiffany Shipp,

I am writing you as Leonard Cohen's former personal manager.  I understand that you are Cohen's media contact.  I would like to advise you that I have been relentlessly slandered and maligned in the news media.  I realize Leonard Cohen is a famous celebrity with powerful publishers and access to LAPD's celebrity unit (Threat Management).  I am also aware that Leonard Cohen has had a creepy private investigator essentially stalking me for a number of years.  Close Range evidently works closely with LAPD's TMU and LA prosecutors.  My friends referred to the individual PI as "creepy."

I reported allegations that Leonard Cohen committed criminal tax fraud to IRS on April 15, 2005, have provided them with an abundance of evidence, and have documented everything I have gone through since reporting this tax fraud to tax authorities.  IRS requires Leonard Cohen to provide me with information that refuses to provide me with.  Cohen, in the alternative, used the situation to accuse me of harassing him.  He has lied to LAPD's TMU extensively and I have discussed this matter with them.  LAPD's TMU concluded that my emails to Cohen were generally requests for tax information.

Cohen has, as his financial adviser noted he would in June 2005, used fraudulent restraining orders against me in an attempt to undermine my credibility as a witness, etc.  Neal Greenberg's lawsuit against Cohen sets forth very serious allegations that Cohen and his lawyer, Robert Kory, have engaged in a conspiracy, witness tampering, witness intimidation, bribery, extortion, and so forth.  They raised, as have I, issues related to Cohen being the alter ego of certain corporate entities who has engaged in self-dealing.

Cohen obtained a fraudulent default judgment against me.  I am attempting to ask LA Superior Court to refer Cohen to the appropriate authorities for a perjury prosecution.  I was not served his lawsuit.  He has a team of lawyers who are evidently willing to do and say anything.  I, my family, friends, and others have been criminally harassed over this situation for years.  Cohen's fan, who copies in his lawyer, a suspicious Bay Area lawyer, who argues Cohen's legal points, and others, have engaged in what appears to be a highly coordinated campaign of criminal harassment.  I have addressed this with LAPD, LAPD TMU, LA County Sheriff's Department, FBI, IRS, DOJ, Treasury, FTB, and others.  
Leonard Cohen flew into Boulder, Colorado, in the middle of his 2008 European tour, to obtain yet another fraudulent restraining order.  He testified that he was concerned i would attend his concert.  That concert was scheduled nearly one year after the extraordinary flight into Boulder.  Cohen's concerns, per the paperwork, were my communications with third parties (IRS, FBI, DOJ, Treasury, FTB, Dennis Riordan, Paul Shaffer, Bob Dylan, and Oliver Stone are some of the parties he testified about) and my communications with journalists or online posts refuting the slander.  Sylvie Simmons garbage book helped Cohen further slander and defame me.  

Cohen then took the 2008 Boulder order and fraudulently registered it in California as a domestic violence order.  He testified that we were lovers although he testified in a contradictory manner in another hearing.  Cohen also testified that I never stole from him - just his peace of mind.  I have asked IRS and FTB to take that into consideration when determining whether or not Cohen's IRS/FTB refunds were fraudulently obtained.  He also advised MacLean's in his interview coordinated to appear when his retaliatory lawsuit was filed.  I reported Cohen's tax fraud to IRS on April 15, 2005 and he retaliated.  

Feel free to read Ann Diamond's draft article highlighting the facts of this situation.  Simmons evidently quoted liberally from that article although she never bothered to contact me.  That speaks volumes about what she was willing to do to obtain access to Cohen and his archives.  I have also attached a declaration filed with LA Superior Court setting for the history and some of the evidence I have provided IRS and others.  I also intend to move to dismiss Cohen's fraudulent domestic violence order.  This man has offered me, among other things, 50% community property.  That was evidently meant to coerce me into testifying against his representatives.  I refused.  

The corporate books, records, tax returns, and other evidence prove that i have an ownership in numerous Cohen-related entities and IP.  Cohen has simply fabricated a narrative that seems to have satisfied LA Superior Court.  IRS, FTB and State of Kentucky continue to view me as a partner on those entities.  I received no over-payments re. my commissions as personal manager.  As I have advised IRS, the expense ledger Cohen submitted to the Court is evidence of accounting and financial fraud.  Information Cohen has transmitted to IRS, FTB, and State of Kentucky also proves this fact.

I would appreciate your giving this situation some consideration given the fact that I continue to be slandered and defamed in the news media.  I, my sons, family, Paulette Brandt (Phil Spector's former personal assistant and girlfriend), and many others continue to be criminally harassed.  I am documenting that situation for IRS, FBI, DOJ, Treasury, FTB, Dennis Riordan, and others.
