SDNY.ORG is a counter-speech sight to provide the truthful narratives about the dozen politically and financially motivated “social media investigative journalists”.  Periodically, these crisis actor players engage public shaming and smear campaigns.






Shadowbox Strategies refers to a company that was apparently formed under the laws of the State of Texas between two Internet so-call pseudo political operatives known as Thomas Schoenberger and Manuel Chavez in the fall of 2017.  Both Chavez and Schoenberger have been waging an on-going cyber feud against each other over the details of Shadowbox Strategies.  Other players may include Tevor FitzGibbon, a former public relations consultant for the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Thomas Schoenberger, Greater Los Angeles, California, is a so-called social media pseudo cyber predator (with an apparent long arrest record) that seems to enjoy projecting  power by intimidation and smear campaigns. Schoenberger was closely connected with an associate of Denise Matteau (see TRUTH CONVOY) known as Manuel Chavez, III of Carson City, Nevada.  Chavez is known as “DEFANGO” in social media circles.

Both Schoenberger and Chavez have been implicated in numerous lawsuits that orbit Dallas, Texas businessman Ed Butowsky, a former FOX NEW contributor that allegedly  hired Schoenberger and Chavez to conduct social media smear campaigns as part of  “SHADOWBOX STRATEGIES”.














Both Schoenberger and Chavez lived in together a Greater Dallas (purportedly Plano) hotel for sixty (60) days together in the Fall of 2017 to establish the Texas company and confer with Butowsky (hotel costs paid by Butowsky).  This is the approximate time the company “SHADOWBOX STRATEGIES” was created in the State of Texas (2017).






It is alleged that Ed Butowski also uses Steven S. Biss, esq. for legal services.

Schoenberger and Chavez have been implicated in at least two other lawsuits; Steele v. Goodman, Civil Action No. 3:17cv601 (E.D. Va. July 25, 2019) and the undersigned’s lawsuit Sweigert v. Goodman, Civil Action No. 2:18-1633-RMG (D.S.C. Sep. 17, 2018) transferred to the S.D.N.Y. as 1:18-cv-08653-VEC-SDA.

Chavez has demonstrated a deeply connected relationship with attorney Steven S. Biss.  Mr. Biss is also the attorney of record in the Robert David Steele lawsuit in Virginia.




Twitter seeks legal fees


Twitter is demanding that Rep. Devin Nunes’ lawyer pay its legal fees in a new court filing responding to one of the Republican congressman’s attempts to identify anonymous people who heckle him online.

Nunes is suing Twitter in a Virginia court, but the new filing is part of a lawsuit that is not related to the California lawmaker.

Nunes’ attorney, Steven S. Biss, also represents former public relations executive Trevor Fitzgibbon. Fitzgibbon is suing a former colleague who accused him of sexual assault, Jesselyn Radack.

“Since the outset of that case, Mr. Biss has fought repeatedly — and unsuccessfully — to unmask the identity of the person(s) speaking anonymously through the @DevinCow account,” Twitter’s attorneys wrote. “And now, Mr. Biss is trying to use a federal court subpoena to effectively short circuit the Virginia state court’s ability to properly address and resolve those still-ongoing discovery disputes in the context of the Nunes case.”

Biss faced a year-long ban from practicing any law in Virginia starting in 2008 stemming from his work in a case where a company was accused of making fraudulent financial statements in a bid to take over another business.

In sworn statements submitted as evidence in other cases, Biss’s legal adversaries said he has approached them with what they regarded as unethical requests to testify and threatened to sue them.

“Biss claimed he had a number of issues in his past that showed Biss would do anything to defeat anyone and he would not rule out breaking the law,” a lawyer suing Biss for slander said in a court affidavit in 2006. The lawyer eventually dropped that lawsuit against Biss.

Other public records show Biss has been litigious in his personal life. Last year, he was evicted by his landlord of 13 years. Biss appealed his eviction for eight months before surrendering the property, owing both the back rent and thousands of dollars in legal fees.

Nunes’ lawsuits have given Biss a national platform – even prompting other DC officials such as Kash Patel, a former Nunes aide and current White House adviser, to employ Biss in their own defamation suits. Biss also has threatened to sue another congressman, Rep. Ted Lieu, on behalf of Nunes.
