In two federal lawsuits, Jason Goodman (purported owner of 21st Century 3D) has alleged a PINK CUBE-like operation has targeted his “business”.  PINK CUBE refers to the infamous BLACK CUBE INCIDENT — an event that catalyzed the on-going social media disputes between Manuel Chavez, III (“DEFANGO“) and Jason Goodman at the time (November 17, 2017).

Most Internet observers recall the “Black cube coffee incident”.  In that incident Jason Goodman began marketing coffee cups in retaliation for the slander and defamation distributed by Manuel Chavez, III (who appears on the coffee cup).







DEFANGO (Chavez) admitted in numerous videos posted on the YouTube platform that he had received information from Matt Couch (see Aaron Rich lawsuit) that Goodman was an operative of the BLACK CUBE organization (presumably a para-military information operations group similar to BLACKWATER).  DEFANGO published this information on his YouTube show.



In his videos (published May – June 2019 on DEFANGO TV, LARP WARS and MERLIN DEFANGO YouTube channels) Chavez incriminated himself with a series of confessions related to the PINK CUBE operation, instantiated as SHADOWBOX STRATEGIES.  PINK CUBE is merely short-hand for the “reputation defense/destruction” core capabilities of the entity DEFANGO created with one Thomas Schoenberger.

Schoenberger and DEFANGO were engaged by a Dallas, Texas businessman known as Edward Butowsky (deeply involved in the Seth Rich controversy and subsequent lawsuit by Aaron Rich.  Democratic National Committee operative Trevor FitzGibbon was also involved in the creation of the PINK CUBE effort.


As the editors of Tracking the Leopard Meroz have pointed out in a series of articles, both Thomas Schoenberger and DEFANGO and visions of creating a type of litigation support business that could augment litigation with public relations smear campaigns.  The same allegations have been leveled against Jason Goodman at CrowdSource The Truth.

In a half-dozen federal court filings, Jason Goodman has repeated this conspiracy theory that a PINK CUBE type 3D NETWORK (decentralized distributed defamation network) was operating against his “business”.  In video content released across multiple social media platforms in the Fall of 2017, Goodman expressed his belief in what he called a 3D NETWORK of co-conspirators.  It is interesting that Goodman’s alleged business is known on YouTube as “21st CENTURY 3D“.

The preponderance of evidence, already submitted in two federal court cases, indicates that at the very least DEFANGO and Thomas Schoenberger have allegedly conducted active smear information operations against Jason Goodman in 2017 and possibly 2018.  Goodman publicly stated that he had met with the New York F.B.I. field office (later discovered to be Special Agent Brittany Custer) in April 2018 about the 3D NETWORK (“PINK CUBE effort”).


Goodman then proceeded to telephone the employers of suspected PINK CUBE (3D NETWORK) co-conspirators (see Titus Frost of YouTube) in alleged attempts to have them fired from their jobs.  Goodman has stated, in several on-line interviews, that he advised these employers of the on-going F.B.I. investigation into the PINK GROUP group.

During this time window (November 2017 to May 2018) Thomas Schoenberger was an unknown entity that was apparently deeply involved in behind the scenes PINK CUBE operations.  In later confessions (April – June 2019) Schoenberger accused DEFANGO of developing wiretapping capabilities to intercept phone calls of the Aaron Rich family (now suing Edward Butowsky in the federal court serving the District of Columbia).


The general public could legitimately wonder if the N.Y.C. F.B.I. investigation, initiated by Goodman in April 2018, is still active.  Assuming it is, then the PINK CUBE group (Shadowbox Strategies) would be the target of such an investigation, which would lead back to Schoenberger and DEFANGO (both involved in an acrimonious social media finger pointing campaign — blaming one another for crimes).

Both DEFANGO and Schoenberger admit that they were engaged by Ed Butowsky to coordinate so-called social media “reputation defense”, an imprecise term that apparently refers to smear campaigns and the like.  It is unknown as to why Jason Goodman would have been a target of these PINK CUBE operatives.
