Is this the end of Coldwatch?

OK... I'll skip straight to the punchline and say the answer is 'No... This isn't the end of Coldwatch'...

But there's a 'but'.

Over the last few years I have been cataloguing the lies, deceit, bullshit, racism, anti-semitism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, Hitler worship and all round charlatanry, bigotry and nonsense of the world's leading fake doctor and pretend expert on just about everything. The utter fraud that is Not-A-Doctor Leonard Coldwell a/k/a Bernd Witchner a/k/a Bernd Klein.

But... (see I told you there was a 'but' didn't I)... Over the last few months his activities have become so predictable and tedious that I'm at risk of simply repeating myself ad-nauseum... just like he does... And I don't want to do that.

I have mentioned a couple of times that it seems like the little fat fraud is back in his native Germany either permanently or for the majority of the time. Now I don't know for sure but I can theorise as to why Lenny is now targetting, albeit somewhat half-heartedly, the German speaking world and it boils down to one or both of these... Either his income stream has dried up to the extent he's reduced to living on benefits and they are way more generous in Germany than in the USA or he's simply decided that Germany has an untapped reservoir of of the sort of mugs who will pay him for his worthless shit.

Thinking about it those are probably both the same thing.

So what do we know for sure or nearly for sure?

1) Lenny has closed his Idiocy Based Money Scam in the US to new members because, he claims, it has reached saturation point and he can't cope with any more members. Given that his IBMS website has not been significantly updated for several years and that the last 'conference' he held was a poorly attended farce in 2014 I think we can safely say that IBMS USA has precisely no members whatsoever.

2) Since the beginning of 2017 I have been keeping an eye on Lenny's posting times to social media. Although there are exceptions the vast majority of his posts are made between 9am and midnight GMT/BST which means he's either in the US and largely nocturnal or he's in Europe somewhere... My guess would be Germany.

3) Starting in 2016 and increasing in 2017 his posts on social media have been inclined heavily towards German language posts and he has been pushing his IBMS Germany scam almost to the exclusion of pushing his US scam.

4) So far this year there have been, to the best of my knowledge three IBMS Germany events to cater to his claimed membership of about 30,000. The first one had an attendance figure of around two dozen (including his old mucker 'Dr' Hohn and his mother), the second one on 1st Apr didn't seem to happen at all and the third one is a bit of a mystery... He did post a rather bizarre picture of a crowd of people standing around tables eating without the aid of chairs but there was nothing to suggest this was actually a Lenny event. Then there were a handful of German language 'testimonials' but of pictures of a packed auditorium there were none.

5) Lenny has just started offering an IBMS coaching 'qualification' to his few German suckers for a mere twelve thousand of their German Euros. This is the self same money-milking tactic he used in the US to little effect apart from, so I hear, a lot of disgruntled 'coaches' asking for their money back. You do have to wonder at the intelligence, or rather the lack of it, of people who would pay good money to be a 'coach' to a 'system' that even it's duplicitous inventor can't sell.

It should perhaps be noted that Lenny, true to disreputable type, is claiming that all IBMS Germany 'sales' are covered by US law in much the same way as IBMS US sales were covered by German law. This is obviously a pathetic attempt to avoid having to pay refunds to his marks when they realise he doesn't actually have anything to sell... Well... Nothing worth paying for. I suspect the courts in Germany would have the same attitude to this 'legal disclaimer' as American courts would and tell him to get fucked.

6) There have been a handful of new webshites created this year pushing Lenny's fantasy TV channel (neither his nor really a TV channel) and his new 'seminare' business amongst other things. All in German only with no English language equivalent.

So does that all add up to Lenny having moved back to Germany? Well it's not conclusive but it's an awful lot of circumstantial evidence so I'm going to say 'yes' with a confidence level of 92.3%

And now to sum up...

Lenny is probably back in Germany which will no doubt come as a massive relief to the population of the USA and a massive blow to the good denizens of Bundesrepublik Deutschland and he's catering to a German speaking audience und ich spreche kein Deutsch but it doesn't really matter... I know enough German to know what he posts is either fake news, stupid conspiracy theories, hatred or adverts for his own collapsing empire.

I could post a screenshot of his claim that canned foods from Thailand contain HIV which is idiotic, medically ignorant and over five years old... and false of course but what would be the point? He's been posting this sort of shit for years and his Facebook posts rarely exceed a dozen 'likes' and most get no likes at all. His new DrColdwell1 account on Twitter gets zero likes, zero comments and zero retweets.

I could comment on his latest theory that his former hero Donald Trump has been 'got at' by 'the Jews' but again what would be the point other than to mock the way his hero has fallen from grace?

I could comment on his ever-forthcoming new book on vaccination that he's been promising for the last year or more but again... What would be the point? "New book fails to appear for the 379th day running" soon gets boring.

So... And I really will sum up this time... This blog has been quieter this year and almost silent for the last month because Lenny hasn't done anything worth commenting on that I haven't commented on before at least twice... He's become boring, predictable and he doesn't seem to even have the willpower to properly push his scam to his new/old audience.

Lenny is back where he started trying to lazily grift his way to fame and fortune in Germany and doing no better today than he did then as far as I can tell. His English language scams are deceased for all intents and purposes and his glory days as Kevin Trudeau's bitch are ancient history... And that's what Lenny himself is becoming... History.

No income stream... Money spent... Golden horsey statue pawned... Rented lakeside mansions vacated... USA abandoned to its fate.

There WILL be further posts on this blog when... Or should that be 'if'?.. He does anything interesting and yes Lenny... I will still be watching you... But until then...

Au revoir mes ami.
