Here we go again. . .

Rob Menard has recently been hyping his indoor grow systems and is telling everyone on Facebook that he's had a meeting with an un-named vegetarian restaurant chain interested in purchasing a great many units in order to grow vegetables for their restaurant chain.

After hyping the meeting Menard give his Facebook readers a report. The emphasis is mine:

Quote:
Robert Menard: Well that went about as well as I hoped! Very cool folks, and although they liked my design it was not what they were looking for. They prefer an aeroponics misting system for the roots as opposed to a flood and drain system, they want the units fixed in place but still modular instead of mobile units, and they want to be able to go up at twice or three times the height of my design. They did like my design for someone who wants to maybe grow in their garage, but they have in mind a much higher production capacity than my design was aiming for.

So... they asked me to redesign my unit to meet their needs, include greater detail in the drawings so they can get it in front of an engineer and do a cost analysis, and give a better more detailed construction plan. If I can come in under about $3500 US for a 4'x 8' multi-tier modular plug and play units and still include the control system, I think they may offer me the contract to set up their urban farm, or, consider a partnership and creation of a new corporate entity to manufacture and sell these larger industrial sized units.

They liked it, they just want bigger. Either way, I see them in two weeks with the new plan, designed to their stated specs.
Those of you who are familiar with Rob's entrepreneurial efforts and inventions will recall his proposed vitamin supplement product, his pitched property stewardship company, which was to employ homeless people to renovate foreclosed properties, and the infamous Ninja Goat, an outdated motorized camera platform he proposed to sell to the film industry.

If you recall each effort was hyped on the internet or on Facebook showing the usual Menard excitement with the supposedly bold new idea. In each case a meeting with or a solid connection to the product's prospective users was hyped and reported on. In each case Menard said he needed to make a few more adaptions to his invention or idea, but needed just a few more thousand dollars to get the project rolling.

I have to admit that this time I was hoping Bobby might, in his 50's, be on the way to making his way in the world. But I see the pattern. I think all Bobby wants are investors who will eventually be told that the project didn't happen and their money went up in smoke.

Think about it. The Facebook faithful are being told that a successful restaurant chain is calling serious meetings with guy who, by a simple Google search, can be discovered as a failed freeman guru on the run from the courts.

Oh, please!

He is thinking way way to small - tell the chronic underachiever to research "Brilliant Light Power" and a guy called Dr. Mills on a perfectly legal way to make millions.

Bobby's pattern regarding his pitched business ideas and freeman projects has been to say nothing after the initial enthusiasm dies down.

Nobody knows why the projects and products failed or what happened to the money.

So he wants people to think he can reinvent hydroponics and make it profitable on a large scale?

Good luck with that.........

Yeah, my understanding is that restaurants that strive to serve unprocessed foods or are "vegetarian" rely on trusted farmers/growers to provide them with wholesome produce in bulk.

I am by no means an expert, but I can't see how a chain would hope to grow enough of even their rarely used garnishments in a bank of grow boxes.

I saw "indoor grow systems" and immediately thought it was for a product other than vegetables. And which is being grown legally in considerably quantities here in my state. Indoors, in many cases. Menard is obviously working in the wrong country/state.

It seems to me that, by saying he needs to raise money, Menard is tacitly admitting all his magic "I don't need money"/ "I can pay for stuff without money" ideas are so much rubbish.

Reading closely we see that Bobby hasn't asked for money yet. He says he needs to come up with a new design. The inference that he needs help doing so is clear.

When Bobby needs help, hide your checkbook.

If his old form holds he'll make the pitch saying the restaurant needs a working prototype which he can't make without some funds.

The maybe some up front money from him to show he can make the first run of the boxes.

Then there's the capital needed start full scale manufacture.

Does he have to spend anything to create the business and as he is, in theory, producing food does it have to meet any kind of safety and health requirements?

Bobby is saying he is proposing to sell grow boxes to a chain of vegetarian restaurants. If this fairy tale ever happened somewhere along the line of production Bobby would encounter some sort of government regulation.

In the past one of his main excuses for not getting his products to market is that the bad old government required him to do something which if done would create joinder with the government and make him a slave of the state.

This grade school ploy allows FailureBobby to throw in the towel, claim that the bad old government has screwed him again and drown himself in a river of Moose Heads.

IMO, it would be cheaper and more efficient in the long run, to outright BUY an organic vegetable farm.

Maybe "cheaper and more efficient" as compared to this idea of Menard's, but really, how many people in the restaurant business are keen to move into the farming business? Why take on a whole new set of challenges and risks, that other than the products involved, are utter different from your current business? Why give up the flexibility of buying from multiple vendors, which allows you choice in quality, quantity, price, availability, range of products, timeliness, and a host of other factors?

This sounds like he's trying to get in on the feel-good "Farm to fork" idea, but without thinking it through.

Is it possible Menard is for real this time?

Think of the kid in your garage band 20 years ago who said he was auditioning for U2 but wasn't allowed to tell you about the details since he was slated to replace a band member who'd raise a stink if he knew he was on the bubble. Later he said the audition went great but he was just too edgy for U2, so by mutual consent he and Bono parted ways. He said they would probably call him back in a few months when they realized their mistake.

Based on his new rep he said he wanted to write all the band's songs.

The next day you threw him out of the band.

Today he lives in a shack with no discernible income.

No conspiracy, but this is the forum for all things "freemen on the land", and "sovereign citizen".

Menard's schitck was to be a "freeman on the land" guru for a bit, and all of the crap related to this failed conman ends up here as well.

I'm aware of Menard's FMOTL crap, and that's certainly on topic here. I just don't see why this particular discussion had anything to do with this forum.

We don't need a thread for everything that a lame, drunk loser does, do we? I'd prefer skip the dull dreams and schemes when they aren't relevant. Not everything a conspiracy theorist says or does needs direction here.

Just a thought.

We are acting like the grow box thing is a project to be planned and executed.

It's not about doing anything. It's all about the illusion Menard is trying to preserve.

The facade Menard tries to present is that of a moral, resourceful, self-sufficient and hard working freemen who has no need for government and it's rules. This front is intended to make all the freemen legal and life style advice he gives seem practical and realistic.

The endless projects may seem like a lot of effort for nothing but the need to preserve the illusion is so strong that Menard will create ventures he knows he'll never get going just to make himself look like the sort of take charge freeman from whom one might want to buy legal advice.

Ah, so anytime Menard attempts to appear vaguely competent, it's on topic here, since an appearance of competence would help his Freeman project.

Of course, this is nonsense. This forum is for discussing conspiracies, and Menard's latest fantasy had nothing to do with conspiracies.

Yeah, I have a buddy who lives in a legal to grow state & he has a set up similar to what Menard is describing that cost $1500 including lights & I believe it's twice the size.

True to form Bobby is trying to form a cooperative which would grow veggies in his little grow boxes and sell them to "better restaurants, retirement homes, work camps, neighborhoods and markets".

For those of you not familiar with producer co-ops they process and market goods and then supply those products for the co-op's professional activities. In this case the "activity" would be selling the veggies to restaurants and markets.

One can only guess that Bobby has neglected to inform prospective co-op members that in Canada, a co-operative must incorporate at the provincial, territorial or federal level.

How very un-freeman of our boy to have to do such a thing!

I suspect Bobby really wants to "franchise" the yet unmade grow boxes he never got the mythical restaurant chain to buy. The marks would be co-op gullibles who won't have the sense to realize that Bobby's can't do the grunt work necessary to set up the co-op and supervise its work.

They get left with a grow box, no real co-op and no buyers.

Here we go yet again. Menard has another "look at me" project in the works which he tells his followers about. Note that Bobby is careful to control the narrative.

First we hear:

Quote:
Robert Menard
September 9 at 9:41 PM ∑
Biggest week of my life coming up. Two years of work and a couple of decades of envisioning. All coming down to a meeting on Tuesday. Which I Intend to rock. Not going to sleep much I bet.
Then a couple of days later:

Quote:
Robert Menard
September 11 at 2:39 PM ∑
Nailed it.
One of his followers ask what's all about and gets the usual Bobby brush off:
Quote:
Roger Walker: I hope you're going to fill us in rather than leave us hanging?

Robert Menard: Eventually.

Roger Walker: Cool.
Source: https://www.facebook.com/robert.menard.52

It's the same old story line. Bobby has a big meeting coming up. The meeting invariably goes well. Then we never hear squat about the project.

Repeat process in six months.

One of the commenters asks if Fezboy has gained the financing they had talked about.

Quote:
Dario Busch: You closed financing on the thing you talked to me about?
Bobby said nothing. But the question tips the reader off to a likely repeat of Menard's practice of pocketing money for a project that subsequently never gets off the ground.

Now I am just being a sarcy ashole ain't I? Kicking people when they are lying down and all.
I think you can see this as some form of "collateral damage". Please, do continue.

The thing that strikes me about Real3Games is that there doesn't seem to be any product being sold. Consistent with Menard's much ado about nothing ventures the effort seems hung up in the promotional stage.

Whether it's Freeman Valley, the ACCP, the Ninja Goat or countless other "efforts" nothing ever gets done.

At best Menard is a 50 something loser hooked on the excitement of the new thing.

But, we should consider that, at worst, Menard makes money by harvesting investments in projects he has no intention of completing. He's already told a story about his hiring and his claim that he can skirt the SIN.

What other stories will Menard cook up?

Here's the pitch to the marks:

Jobs at Real3Games
Next Generation eSport - Startup
Real3Games has developed a remarkable concept which will allow eSport athletes to form teams and control robust drones in the real world, in real time. Competing to fulfill delivery contracts within a fixed time, they can earn valuable Game Points and real world coupons provided by sponsors.

It's an exciting concept with a chance to be on the ground floor. Not merely as an employee, you can be a founding partner, with fair equity, a reasonable salary and generous benefit package.(my emphasis)

Oh yeah, this will work. It's so sure of success, I'm starting a competing business, but my players will earn game points and valuable coupons by painting bridges, doing laundry, and filling out people's tax returns.
