Anna Douglass has described her husband as a ‘pathological liar’ and certainly identified that, before her husband’s obsession with Universal Medicine was kicked off by the end of their marriage, there had been no complaints about Universal Medicine and that since this time Lance Martin has been ‘seeking revenge’ by concocting stories and making ‘unfounded allegations’. As Anna Douglass states, Lance Martin has:
‘been consistent and relentless at getting any sort of attention and smearing Universal Medicine, he will go to extraordinary lengths, and will distort the truth to achieve this.’
Lance Martin (cowardly hiding behind various pseudonyms) has accused Serge Benhayon of various outrages that have absolutely no foundation, such as paedophilia; a corrupt relationship with his current wife and ex-wife; manipulating his wife into a relationship with him when she was a young teenager; sexual grooming of young girls (current and past); an indecent interest in ‘young girls’ or ‘pre-pubescent, barely out of primary school girls’; money laundering; tax fraud and additionally appears to have supported Esther Rockett’s own false suggestions that Serge Benhayon had sexually abused his daughters – All absolutely untrue.
This long tirade of abuse viewed in total is simply ridiculous. It would be laughable if it were not so disturbing that someone could concoct such elaborate and extensive fictions about a man that he knows so little about and apparently convince himself that these lies and fabrications are true.
Esther Rockett appears to have taken up Lance Martin’s concoctions with little consideration as to their truth. Most recently she has been focussing her attentions upon Twitter and making up completely unfounded connections between Universal Medicine and various organisations before the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
What is so disgraceful about Rockett’s attempt to tar Universal Medicine by baselessly linking it to appalling stories of people affected by institutionalised abuse is that no child sexual abuse has occurred in or through Universal Medicine or anyone associated with Universal Medicine – none.
In spite of Esther Rockett’s concocted claims and her consistent requests for any ‘victims’ to come forward there have been none forthcoming quite simply because there are none. Yes that is correct – NONE. Esther Rockett should take a good look at the ‘evidence’ placed in front of her by Lance Martin and the motives that have furiously driven Lance Martin’s revenge campaign.
If Lance Martin’s conduct is considered and the lies he has concocted are reflected upon, it seems that he literally will do or say anything to achieve his stated goal of ‘bringing down’ his target (he has made no secret of his vengeful crusade). But like all ill motivated possessed men before him, lies will eventually undo their source. Also, given Esther Rockett’s concerns and obsessions about potential child abuse or sleazy men, we suggest she read on. Our quality is reflected in the friends we keep.
I have observed over the time that there appears to be no lengths to which Lance Martin will not stoop to have his aim of destroying Serge Benhayon carried through. In the creation of lies to support his claims, one disgraceful lie that Martin has intentionally and maliciously propagated is that Serge Benhayon has an indecent interest in young girls. Examining Lance Martin’s conduct it seems that it is he that may have the problem with young girls.
Lance Martin has made many unsupported innuendoes, suggesting that he has evidence of sexual impropriety when none in fact exists. It appears easy for him to make up such things about another man and lie unashamedly.
Lance Martin has obsessed over Serge Benhayon having known his wife Miranda Benhayon since she was a teenager. A characteristic disgusting suggestion about being ‘home skooled’ with Lance Martin’s characteristic sexual inference has been a standard style of his anonymous posts online:
He hasn’t got a certificate, and won’t get one under the new system. Ergo, kids should not attend his workshops, clinic, events, or stay at his home or houses.’
Well, Serge Benhayon does have a current working with children certificate, a blemishless past in regard to his work with young people and has a huge number of people who have grown up closely associated with the Benhayon family, who will only attest to the care and fatherly support Serge Benhayon has provided to them over the years.
The testimonials from his tennis coaching days speak volumes of a man who, evidently, simply deepened his already tried, tested and well known integrity, to establish what is today a world leading business model setting higher and deeper than any other before him the principles of integrity and responsibility.
Against this backdrop, which there is substantial evidence to support, there is the revenge motivated strategy of Lance Martin, who has created a sordid and false portrayal of events around Serge Benhayon and his current wife Miranda Benhayon’s past that ignores the fact that the extremely close and strong relationship between Serge and Miranda Benhayon did not commence until Miranda was in her twenties, and well after Serge Benhayon had separated from his first wife Deborah Benhayon.
Lance Martin’s lurid musings upon Miranda Benhayon and her relationship with Serge Benhayon and his family have spurned a number of malicious, and of course anonymous, blog comments that on the surface suggest that a person in the know who had observed Miranda at the time she was being coached by Serge Benhayon has joined up with Lance Martin and Esther Rockett to ‘corroborate’ their account of the young Miranda.
It is a concocted deceit, pure and simple.
There is no one who can factually claim that Miranda was ‘ostracised from her family’. That simply never occurred, nor did (as has been asserted) her life become ‘engulfed’ by Serge Benhayon. She is not ‘owned’ and has not been ‘owned from her early teens’. She is not a ‘captive bride’ and she was not ‘groomed’ from a young age.
A few minutes spent with the woman and actual real life accounts of her character testify with absolute certainty that a teenage Miranda was well known in many tennis circles and the community as being a very strong and forthright person. She could not be contained and held captive by the seductive abuse of her mother let alone any person who stood in the way of her commitment to her then chosen career.
The same tenacity remained when she moved out of the Benhayon’s household and eventually onto another supportive family’s offer to host her tennis-minded calling and to finish her schooling in a supportive environment, a support that was not forthcoming from her own mother, as Miranda made a choice to not return to anything less than the decency and respect she had herself demanded.
Miranda did not abandon her family for a tennis career and neither was she under Serge and Deborah Benhayon’s control. Miranda may be said to have succeeded in completing High School through the support of families other than her own and establishing a full and rich life for herself in spite of the deleterious and toxic environment that her mother had provided the young Miranda.
Much has been made of Miranda ceasing all communication with her mother and various malicious inferences have been attempted by Lance Martin and Esther Rockett.
The withdrawal of communication with her mother is not from any control or influence by Serge Benhayon as Lance and Esther would like others to believe, but due to the conduct exhibited by Miranda’s mother over a long period that in the end led Miranda to a personal choice to stop communications. This was Miranda’s choice and hers alone and what is clear is that Miranda chose the decency and respect she had found value in, rather than the moribund life her mother had set out before her.
We assume that the latest malicious additions about Miranda Benhayon have been penned by Lance Martin and Esther Rockett themselves to try to lend weight to their ridiculous claims.
Lance Martin, blogging as Lord of Form, suggests that those who REALLY know Miranda Benhayon, like the writer of this blog, have somehow missed seeing that Miranda is ‘captive’ – apparently suffering from Stockholm syndrome. Firstly, if you are really sure Lance of your facts you would not be posting under pseudonyms and secondly, you would not be so cowardly hiding behind Esther Rockett as your mouthpiece.
Come out and say it and see if it can stand the test of the possible outcomes that such lies will incur.
There may come a time Lance Martin when your well known impecunious position is not a casual deterrent to legal action. But let us here say no more to what may unfold. For now, we return to the lurid and concocted world of Lance Martin, the only assets he can actually say that he owns.
Esther Rockett weighs in with some spurious psychological analysis, making up the facts and making outrageous claims about ‘isolation, domination and duress’. Imagine approaching your middle to elderly years with a catalogue of extraordinary lies.
Esther Rockett, have you backed the wrong man again?
On the subject of facts, and for the record, Esther Rockett and Lance Martin have never met Miranda Benhayon, know nothing of her life, her personal relationships and certainly are not in a position to assert any in depth knowledge or awareness of who she is, her psychological development or the quality of her marriage to Serge Benhayon. This is FACT, need it be said, again.
Esther Rockett dribbles out a long tirade about ‘traumatic bonding’ referring to such relationships being founded upon extreme abuse such as ‘intermittently harassing, beating, threatening, abusing or intimidating the other’, and goes on to make the slanderous accusation that Miranda Benhayon had somehow been subjugated to such treatment by Serge Benhayon:
‘The isolation, domination and duress began at a stage when she was still very much in need of parental protection and nurturing – So Serge & Debby took on the dual roles of parent figures and abusers, and like the other Benhayon kids, she has been robbed of the freedom to grow beyond that relationship.’
Apparently (according to Esther Rockett, who we state again has NEVER even met Miranda Benhayon), Miranda is also held captive by ‘supernatural threats’. Sounds good doesn’t it? Very authoritative.
Yet all of it, like all Lance Martin and Esther Rockett have concocted about Miranda Benhayon, is complete fabrication; an asset that history clearly reveals does not yield pleasant returns.
But there is more in this barren theatre. Their anonymous blogger ‘Sideshow Ali’ (the name says it all really, a new pseudonym to add to the pantheon of circus performers singing Lance Martin’s abrasive dark metal tune) asserts Miranda is in an ‘emotional cage has been locked for so long she can’t leave’.
Nope, not even close to the mark ‘Sideshow Ali’, from someone who knows her, let me state unequivocally that Miranda Benhayon is no ‘captive bride’ but a strong and vibrant woman who runs her own business, has her own successful private practice as a highly sought after practitioner and global music presence in Glorious Music with Michael Benhayon, as well as the band Road Gloria. Not exactly the weak, controlled woman that is presented by Lance Martin and his anonymous hate bloggers.
It is Miranda Benhayon herself who should be the one to present herself and her own life, not those who have never met her, never had a conversation with her and certainly are in no position to know anything about her. Miranda can speak for herself:
‘These are comments by people (abusers) who do not know me, have had nothing to do with me, or my life. They operate from a dark seeded sadistic story of their own making, far from the joyous truth that my life has been. They cannot see truth through the thick sickly fog of irresponsibility that they live. I for one do not have the time of day for people like this, I never have, hence the relationship with my mother (no relationship). The Benhayons: they provided unconditional support and love. No different to what they continue to offer and show everyone to this day. I lived with them over a period of 3 years, sometimes part-time and at other times full-time; I also lived with a number of other families/and friends throughout my teenage years, as my own family home environment was unstable. This detail is left out and omitted for it is not anywhere near as sensational nor is it even known by these strangers commenting on my life, a life they have not had the privilege to be part of. These ridiculous lies are getting sicker and more desperate by the minute if you ask me.
For anyone who knows her, and even those that do not, the beauty, power and absolute joy of Miranda Benhayon shines out from every photo, every performance on stage and every move she makes with the grace in which she walks through life – as is also shown in every word she writes. These malicious and dark concoctions of Lance Martin have tried to obscure what cannot be obscured – ridiculous.
Oh, yes, Esther Rockett and her hate bloggers have really created a website dedicated to ‘victim support’ that runs a race on who can humiliate one of their so-called ‘victims’ the most. The only ‘victims’ are those targeted by Lance Martin and Esther Rockett with their lies and deceit. We repeat, if it has not been made clear enough already – they do not know Miranda Benhayon, they do not know anything about her, and they certainly are in no position to assume anything about her relationship with Serge Benhayon.
It has to be emphasised that other than Martin and Rockett’s lurid suggestions of sexual impropriety, paedophilia and grooming, there is no evidence of any conduct that remotely supports their allegations and absolutely no wrongdoing whatsoever and their constant pleas for non-existent ‘victims’ to come forward are pleas intended to incite concern in readers of their social media accounts. There are no ‘victims’ – there are simply none to come forward.
What does exist, and in plentiful supply by real and well educated people, are consistent statements of support for Serge Benhayon as well as from young women who have been quite disturbed to find that Lance Martin and Esther Rockett have suggested that they have been groomed by Serge Benhayon or that they are the victims of sexual abuse. Real people with real life authentications versus concocted stories.
It does not take much to work out who has the actual evidence and therefore where the truth rests. Such is the case for misguided cyber abusers like Lance Martin and Esther Rockett, for they believe their own lies underpinned by the little cyber world they inhabit, a cesspool that is controlled by the freedom to lie whilst cowardly hiding in anonymity.
On the subject of Lance Martin’s indecent obsession, which is the leading exposing fact of this blog, we have asked elsewhere whether Lance Martin is in fact pointing to his own transference of his secret impulses and desires onto Serge Benhayon? And we have asked the disturbing question:
‘What is in fact going on inside the head of Lance Martin when he is looking at or is near teenage girls and what is behind this sexual obsession that has been so maliciously projected onto Serge Benhayon?’
In this context we have to ask what would possess someone to make up such lurid accusations about another man?
Lance Martin (and Esther Rockett’s) desperation to make some mud stick is palpable here, but their conduct is beyond reason.
Lance Martin’s obsession with young women and his fantastical belief that they are in danger from Serge Benhayon may be more a projection of his own fantasy rather than the truth about a man he barely knows.
As a case in point, Danna Elmalah is a young woman from Holland whom Lance Martin has had a seemingly peculiar obsession with. His ‘interest’ in Danna appears to be part of his lurid obsession with what he and Esther Rockett have tried to portray as an indecent interest in young girls by Serge Benhayon. Lance Martin has made comments about Danna and other young women on Esther Rockett’s hate-blogsites. He also apparently obsessed about Danna with his wife at the time. He writes:
‘I noticed very young women worked at the UM clinic. At the end of 2010 my wife and I took a German girl of 16 to the beach that was staying with the Benhayons. I couldn’t work out why young girls were always in his proximity, and I felt uneasy about it. I was rebuked for even asking questions (without making any suggestions)’
Anna Douglass has confirmed that he did speak to her about Danna in this fashion although they did not actually take her to the beach (or any other young woman) as Lance has stated but met her there with other friends – a minor stretch of the truth for Lance.
More recently Lance Martin used the example of Danna in an effort to make a complaint to public health authorities about one of their employees, resting his complaint on his false and unsupportable innuendos about sexual abuse:
‘the same year  , we took a 16 year girl from Serges house to the beach. I learned she was staying with the family from Germany without her parents. Other girls regularly stay unaccompanied with the Benhayons. I asked my wife why this happened and she rebuked me.’
Not only is it deeply disturbing to be the focus of blog comments on Esther Rockett’s hate-sites, what is noteable is that Martin’s story shifts and changes, and he gets his basic facts wrong (nothing new here), as Danna herself observed:
‘Although there are different dates here, I have no doubt that Lance Martin is referring to me. It deeply disturbs me how Lance has written about me (my situation), even though he did it without using my name. I think he did this because he could not even recall my name or because he can keep it as a lie by not naming me so that I cannot say that it is not true.
When reading this paragraph, I read 4 lies. Number one I am Dutch and not German, secondly I was 18 years old (a young adult) not 16 as he says, then the third lie; Lance or his wife Anna did not take me to the beach, I travelled there with my friends, but Lance Martin was there when I got there, fourthly, I was absolutely grateful for staying with Serge and his family and it was my choice to be and stay with this true and loving family, as they are all my friends, Lance Martin has tried to make this sound wrong, there was nothing wrong. So to sum it up a short paragraph that includes 4 lies.’
Now where do you go with that Lance Martin? These are the words of the person you tell the story about. Doesn’t match your concoctions now does it Lance? As Danna clearly exposes for all to see – 4 out of 4 lies on a basic event in life. We have to ask, what else lurks and awaits conjuring when from a basic event one cannot tell the simple truth – the actual facts.
And as for Lance being rebuked by his ex wife for asking why young people were staying at the Benhayon house, no doubt Anna Douglass had considered the questioning rather strange given that the Benhayon house was (and still is) full of young people, with Serge’s son Curtis and Michael’s then girlfriend (now wife) Emmalee both being 18 at the time and the exact same age as Danna. And what on earth is strange about a young woman travelling abroad without her parents on her gap year and staying with friends or their family? It happens all the time without people suggesting that there is something suspicious or odd about such common occurrences.
Of further note Lance Martin has sons who are now young men. Surely their girlfriends and friends visited and stayed over when they were teenagers. Should we consider perhaps that there was something concerning about his son’s young female friends being in Lance’s proximity? Given Lance’s projections of suspicion and innuendo onto Serge Benhayon, the question is pertinent.
Lance Martin’s seemingly indecent obsessions appear to be perfectly summed up by Shakespeare:
“Suspicion always haunts the guilty mind”.
Danna provides her recollection of her day at the beach where she met Lance Martin and exposes Lance Martin’s underbelly – perhaps what he is trying to express in all his projections onto Serge Benhayon:
‘It is true I met Lance Martin, but he did not drive me to the beach, I met him and his wife at the beach, I was driven there by friends. It seems to me that Lance has been writing lies from day one about Serge Benhayon, Universal Medicine and the Benhayon family. This is absolutely wrong.
After meeting Lance Martin my feeling was that this man is not trustworthy. I met Lance on the beach when I arrived on the beach with my friends. He felt suspicious, and I did not feel comfortable wearing my swimmers around him. Later when I have seen him writing such lies on the Internet, I can say that I could have suspected him of doing this. At the time I remember he felt creepy, horrible and definitely not friendly. I actually was a bit shocked that he was Anna’s husband (at that time). Sitting in his chair on the beach, looking out did not make me feel any more comfortable. Being around him and with other kids around, it made me feel just not safe, and restricted with the signals that Lance Martin was sending out. To me it felt a bit like an old man satisfying himself from looking at people with sexual satisfaction or judgement. So I was afraid that he might look at me in the same way. By this look I actually felt sexually imposed upon. To be honest Lance felt like a pervert to me, this sounds very strong, but that was my strong memory of that day.
Having felt this by meeting Lance on the beach, it did not surprise me reading all the lies he has written about Serge, Universal Medicine and all the members of the Benhayon family. It looks like Lance Martin is projecting his own issues at others and blaming them – for what Lance is actually doing himself. And it does stand out that these are lies.’
Again, not only is this testimony from a real life person providing the facts for all to read, but the actual person who is the subject of the claim to evidence by Lance Martin and his pushed-forward mouthpiece.
Perhaps we have an answer to the disturbing question of what is in fact going on inside the head of Lance Martin when he is looking at teenage girls and what is behind his sexual obsession that has been so maliciously projected onto Serge Benhayon?
Lance Martin and Esther Rockett have referred to Serge Benhayon as ‘pervy’. There is no person with any first hand experience that they have to corroborate such malicious claims. No one has ever found Serge Benhayon perverted in any way.
However, here we have first hand experience of what it was like for a young 18-year-old woman to meet Lance Martin, as Danna states she felt he was ‘creepy, horrible and definitely not friendly’ and he acted ‘like an old man satisfying himself from looking at people with sexual satisfaction or judgement’. In the words of the young woman, with direct experience of that day ‘Lance felt like a pervert to me’.
One cannot help wonder what Esther Rockett will make of this revelation?
Is Lance Martin a train wreck waiting to happen?
Will Esther Rockett ignore this direct evidence, like all the other incontrovertible evidence that has revealed time and time again that Lance Martin is a pathological liar whose fabrications and personal dark fantasies are projected onto his nemesis, Serge Benhayon?
We restate: have you backed the wrong horse again Esther?
Esther Rockett says she is concerned about the safety of young women who are connected to Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon. Will she show them the same regard when it comes to her ‘friend’?
Esther has written about Lance Martin that she could not wish for a ‘better friend’, personally I would choose my friends more wisely.
Lance Martin has dealt with the other teenagers who have spoken up about the support and care that they have been given by Serge by denigrating them, suggesting they have been ‘groomed’ and questioning their value:
The fact that the group trot them out demonstrates they have been infantilized as much as these girls have been.’
This is a standard approach Lance Martin has taken to those whose message is not acceptable to his version of reality. No doubt Danna’s direct and lucid account will be met with a similarly paltry rationalisation by Martin; but, and as Serge Benhayon states:
‘no amount of puffed up bravado will ever make a lie a truth’.
Danna is the woman Lance Martin relies on, he hangs his hat on an incident he draws confirmation from, and she, the one Lance has pinned his story on, has exposed his utter lies.
When Lance considers teenagers or young women as not worthy of a voice, and myself and the Facts team as infantalised for giving them that voice, it is indicative of Lance’s attitude to all women that those whom he considers ‘less rational’ than himself, less ‘discerning’ (as he has referred to his ex-wife, Anna) are not deserving of a voice.
In Lance Martin’s world, only those that agree with him appear to be worthy of a voice – all others will be diminished with claims of lack of intelligence, discernment, women who cannot know better as they are dumbstruck, now ‘infantalised’, and finally the last strike at those who are not deemed worthy, according to Lance, age has become part of his rationale (‘irrationale’) of why others cannot speak or comprehend the truth.
We are not sure when someone in Lance Martin’s world gains the right to a voice. When a young woman with a powerful voice challenges his assumptions and sense of entitlement to make up any lie he sees fit, she is too young to hold an opinion worth hearing. But would he reduce her to being so lacking and underdeveloped if she was accusing Serge Benhayon of sexual abuse? We all know the answer to that. And as Serge Benhayon has stated: ‘desperate men possess unique vagaries’.
‘What’ according to the Book of Lance Martin ‘is their highly subjective opinion on it worth anyway?’ Clearly nothing in relation to his highly, self endowed ‘objective’ opinion. Denigrated on the basis of age (unless of course you agree with him).
Yes, Lance Martin cannot handle the fact that young women who have stood up to have their voices heard are unmoved by him, and can undress him to the centre of his emptiness with a single glance. Is there a moment when a woman comes of age and is deserving of her expression? Observing Lance Martin’s comments that so deride those women who have provided opinions and discourse that do not accord with his own views, it seems not.
Perhaps it is the case that unless a woman is sufficiently subservient, and is able to utter the words ‘Yes Lance…whatever you say Lance’ she is not awarded the status of ‘worthy’ of a voice.
We assume, by the expected protocol here, that Esther Rockett must have the right to a full voice in Lance Martin’s book.
It is clear that Lance Martin does not come out smelling of roses here. Danna was equally disturbed that Martin insinuated that she was a victim of a crime or that she was in any ‘danger’ from spending time with the Benhayons:
‘I am deeply disturbed by this comment on the public website written by Lance Martin, as it makes me look like a victim of crime, which I am not. It then deeply disturbs me also how Lance has written this sentence:
‘I couldn’t work out why young girls were always in his proximity, and I felt uneasy about it.’
The way Lance is using ‘proximity’ here is absolutely false and very nasty. He is connecting the word in a way to make Serge look like he is not a man to trust around young women, this is absolutely incorrect from my experience –the opposite is actually the case, Serge Benhayon is completely to be trusted to be around everyone. Secondly it is offensive to me as it seems that in the way Lance writes this sentence, he is saying I am a helpless victim and in danger being around Serge, and this very much disturbs me, as I love to be around Serge and the family and this was always my own choice. I feel very uneasy about the comments that Lance Martin is writing about me and all other young women, they are not true, not because of anything to do with Serge Benhayon, but because of how Lance Martin is making it sound. Completely false and inaccurate.
From my experience living with them I can say that this family, business Universal Medicine and Serge Benhayon are no danger to anyone – actually the opposite, as they are a true and loving family.’
Now imagine the words of the actual person versus the words of the concoctionist in a court of law. No need to provide a conclusion here.
Danna simply repeats the experience of all the young women who have had a close relationship with the Benhayons and stayed at the house, that as a family home it is a ‘loving place to be’ and that they are ‘the most loving, friendly, and non-abusive family’.
Questioning Lance Martin’s integrity was met with one of his supporters, Ira McLure weighing in on the debate asserting that, given his exposure on Facts supposedly ‘sanctioned’ by Anna Douglass, Martin’s ex-wife (who had simply written her story to counter Martin’s lies about her and their relationship), that this:
‘public humiliation that your ex mate has sanctioned UM in doing to you, so easily you could have taken the law into your own hands.
But you didn’t and won’t and we all really commend you for that’
Apart from the fact Lance’s humiliation has been all of his own making and Anna Douglass merely provided her true account of their relationship to counter his lies and expose Lance Martin’s conduct, what exactly is Ira commending?
She appears to be celebrating Lance Martin’s ‘integrity’ for not resorting to violent revenge, when instead he has used a form of revenge that attempts to bury his enemy with lies and deceit and completely false stories of sexual abuse, amongst other lies, so Martin will not be seen as a criminal.
Yet the violence of the lies expose in Lance Martin a man who is ‘relentless’ at pursuing his vendetta at any cost, even to go beyond the limits of basic decency and accuse another man of a litany of crimes he simply has not and has never committed.
Rather than look at the ACTUAL evidence and perhaps question his own misguided view that there is something wrong with the way he is viewing the circumstances, Lance Martin has pursued his personal revenge fuelled vendetta, blinded by his misguided belief that his marriage ended because of Serge Benhayon and his blind intention to bring down his target – there is no ‘integrity’ here.
