Next? Just in...
"Heart to Heart"
from the 1990's Ms. Moore?
You may have reached this
NON-INDEXED page as
the result of a search engine hit or referral from someone NOT
connected with PDN, Inc. or as an alleged victim of Ms. Moore.
Others may have promoted this page, we have not. Contrary to
some rumors being circulated and as the author of this page, I
am NOT a law enforcement officer even though I have served them
in various capacities for 40+ years.
Defenders Network, while appreciative of efforts by
individual members of the disbanded Rebels With a
Cause motorcycle club and many newer organizations of Kathleen
Moore's invention, questions remain unanswered concerning
otherwise highly suspect nonprofit charities run by Kathleen Renee
De Spain Moore like Rebels With a Cause Foundation and
currently, Army of Angels.
I will no longer stand silent!
Ms. Moore: You
are a liar, a fabricator, a fraud and a disturbed person
who has taken advantage of other's personal pain, kindness and generosity
for your own evil self-serving purposes. Now you are
victimizing people who have lost a family member in some of
the most violent of crimes imaginable. To manipulate or take
advantage of those whose deep loss will live with them
forever... there are no words suitable for public display.
While I prayed you had
changed your ways and sought forgiveness from the many
people you have hurt or attempted to slander, we have
EVIDENCE you did it again to a patriot, a friend and
candidate for elective office last year and new victims in
2013! The FACTS speak to
your history Ms. Moore.
NOTICE TO MS. MOORE!
I challenge you to make a claim of libel or slander in a
court of law. Many of us would love nothing better than to
cross-examine you under oath.
My name is David Jenest,
CEO of Patriot Defenders Network, Inc.
www.patriotwatch.com and Director of
Crimewatch.us. As webmaster, I am the sole owner and publisher
of this page. Ms. Moore, contrary to statements you and your
stooges have made to others, no one else has authoring access to
this page. I stand by
every word published on this page, have quoted, without editing,
those you victimized and have the PHYSICAL EVIDENCE
to support every FACT stated herein.
Just in 7-7-14
and pending full vetting from its seemingly reliable source:
1990's Ms. Moore's supposed
professional PR talents used to gain "day job" employment while
being a stripper at night in a Sacramento adult club on Alhambra
Blvd. (Believed to be Club 21 at the time) Her show of gratitude
for a real job? Suing her employer for sexual harrassment?
That's the charge and claim it caused 150 fellow employees their
jobs when the firm's insurance company didn't want to fight the
case in court and settled it in a six figure award.
Ms. Moore's latest
ventures? BE CAUTIOUS! ASK QUESTIONS!
Devil or Angel? You make the call!
UPDATE: July 31, 2013 -
CAUTION for LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS!
Moore is promoting this event
I have moved content from
our parent corporate website now that Ms. Moore seems to be focusing on police
officers. Crimewatch is now actively seeking information about
"Team Captains" in this latest venture. History has
shown Moore will latch on to legitimate charities or projects
before finding a way to exploit them for her own agenda or
financial gain. Proof of that FACT follows.
From these rather questionable people, anyone can buy 50,000
Facebook "Likes" for $1100. Did Moore?
Webmaster Note: For many years Ms. Moore claimed to be a
Public Relations PROFESSIONAL. Her email address at that time
may provide a clue:
August 21, 2013: We recently learned
Ms. Moore has been receiving monthly payments from a nonprofit
for "Professional PR services" while having no business
licenses, Tax ID or legitimate business entity.
July 13, 2013: In the last several
weeks I have been contacted by several individuals who
participated in events or volunteered for activities connected
to Moore's Army of Angels. I have told each, as I have in years
past, if you're willing to put your NAME on this page along with
your allegations, I will share it.
THE DONOR COMMUNITY HAS A RIGHT TO KNOW!
July 19, 2013: From Public Records and
victim's own sworn statements in San Diego courts, evidence of a
fraudulent lease a new Mercedes and judgments against Moore for
defaulting on personal loans. Steve Bauman's three records are
available anyone with a need to know and thumbnail will be
posted here soon.
That's nothing new Ms. Moore!
Sacramento Country Court Records are full of lawsuits against
you and your Moore Communication firm.
I make no assumptions on the legitimacy or
integrity of new organizations she claims to be raising funds
through appeals from the new face of
Kathleen Renee DeSpain Moore. BE FOREWARNED!

we received an email request from a third party who had placed a
link to this page in the public domain Facebook.com. As a result
of that posting we have been contacted by other individuals
seeking information about the alleged beneficiary of an event
produced by Ms. Moore. Since the event was almost identical to
one she has orchestrated for the former Operation Homefront
Sacramento military nonprofit and funds for that Home Front
Heroes Gala appear to have been diverted by Ms. Moore, I have

Statement of Ms. Ruthi Wolfson: 8-31-2013
To everyone who visits this website to verify any
information given to them by myself, Ruthi Wolfson,
or from the posts onto the Army of Angels sites
about Crime Watch, that I, myself, have posted I
would like to make it known, that Crime Watch US &
the Patriot Defenders Network website are all owned
by David Jenest. It is with his permission, that I
have let others know about the website that has
enormous amounts of evidence against Army of Angels
and it's founder, Kathleen Renee DeSpain Moore.
I personally do know, face to face Ms. Moore. When I
was acting President of a local motorcycle rights
organization, Ms. Moore donated time to help me
acquire media attention for the 2012 State
Motorcycle Rally at the State Capitol, here in
Sacramento, CA. In return for her help, I would
volunteer to work with Army of Angels.
I met Ms. Moore at the Polly Klaas Foundation Awards
ceremony back in 2010 at a hotel in Rocklin. It was
not until I moved to Sacramento that we reconnected
& started working together in 2012.
For her helping me to find media coverage I was
asked to post on her Facebook Army of Angels page
what a great organization she was running. I did so
at her request & after working with the
organization, I recanted & deleted my posting.
I was invited by invitation only to a black tie
affair March 30, 2013 to the Army of Angels award
ceremony. Kathleen Moore bragged about how John
Walsh from "America's Most Wanted" was to be a guest
speaker at the gala & was to get an award.
At the gala, it was said he would be on Skype. Well,
gala went well into the night & John Walsh, on
Eastern Time had no intentions of being on Skype to
talk to anyone at this gala. Roger Chiang, Johns
exec director, told me the next day that John has no
idea HOW to even use Skype. This whole guest speaker
idea was a way for Kathleen Moore to get more people
interested in paying $150/seat to meet & greet John
At first, he was to be there in person. At Gala, it
was stated he couldn't make it & sent Roger & then
he would be on Skype.
I sat at the table with both of Kathleen Moore's
parents & a few other members of Army of Angels.
The next day, I offered to help out at the send off
of the bikers leaving for Washington, DC, for the
moving Quilt Project. My husband & I were the first
ones there & then joined by a few others who helped
us set up the dining room. We were all asked to
bring food to feed the bikers before the send off.
We took lots photos, mostly groups photos to post
on the Army of Angels website. There were less than
10 bikes that left that day, and I later found out,
only one of them made it to DC because all of the
funding that Kathleen Moore promised to the bikers,
was just a lie.
Kathleen Moore told my husband & myself to sign up
for next years ride & to fill out a scholarship form
to be paid for gas, eats & hotel. Well, bikers this
year said they had to pay out of their own pockets
for these things as there is actually NO scholarship
money given to the bikers at all. So then where does
the donation money go to?
In a July 9, 2013, conversation with Candy Steven's
the cohost of the Army of Angels talk show & the
designer of the moving Quilt, Candy Steven's
revealed to me that both she & Kathleen Moore do not
use a company bank account, that all of the money
goes into their own personal bank accounts. Candy
stated in an email to me, that Kathleen had told her
she did not need a tax ID or need to use a 501c3 to
sell products for Army of Angels.
I had tried since April 2013, to get information
from Kathleen Moore at her home. I wanted to see the
tax ID & the 501c3 papers. She said we could use
those provided to her from both Wynspring Foster
Care Resources & the Marc Klaas Foundation. I told
her in order to run a legitimate organization, she
needs to apply for her own Tax ID, Register the
group name (which is already used by another CA
based organization & is registered as a CA
fictitious name with the state). I told her she
needs to apply for her own 501c3 to be legal.
All Kathleen Moore answered me was that it was all
good. Well, after telling her I had contacted the
Franchise Tax Board & Secretary of State to find out
her organization is not legal, nor is is a
charitable organization here in the US at all, what
so ever; Kathleen Moore started telling people that
I was personally under investigation.
The day I spoke to Candy Stevens, Candy Stevens
called Kathleen Moore, as did a few other people.
One being Joseph E. Sullivan aka Chaplain Critter,
who told myself & my husband that he was taking over
Army of Angels & had appointed himself president, as
well named a few other people his appointed staff.
After explaining to him that he needs to have a vote
on positions; apply for Tax ID & 501c3, he then
called Kathleen Moore to tell her I was doing a
hostile takeover of her organization. These words
were also told to me by Candy Stevens, from Las
I attest to the fact, that I have never mentioned to
do a hostile takeover of Army of Angels. I also am
upset that I sent Candy Stevens $90 for two back
vest patches that are now no good, because the
organization does not exist except on Facebook.
I received an email yesterday from Velvet Martin of
Edmonton, Canada, who states that she does not
personally know Kathleen Moore or Candy Stevens, but
was asked to run their Edmonton, CN, chapter.
Because of her email to me, and the conversation
she had to with Candy Stevens, stating I have
allegedly made these accusations & that I am the
author of this website, I made it a point to contact
David Jenest in regards to all accusations thrown
out there by both Ms. Stevens & Ms. Moore.
I am electronically signing this email with my
contact information for anyone who has further

Let's look back, shall we?
Candidate Bret Daniels
Remember that name Ms. Moore?
Mr. Daniel's statement and we have the
email you sent him!
"In late 2009, Kathleen Moore solicited
me to host, as a candidate for elective office, a major
media event involving Marc Klaas and his Polly Klaas
Foundation. The event was designed to kick-off the start
of National Child Abuse Prevention (NCAPM) Month in
April 2010. Duties she asked of me included selecting
and inviting a known media personality to emcee the
event, selecting three event coordinators, finding
vendors, attending meetings, comparing caterers,
soliciting silent auction donations, etc.
Over the next few months,
which was a very busy time for me as the June
election approached, I exchanged perhaps a couple
hundred e-mails, tons of phone calls and
scheduled/attended many meetings leading up to the

were deemed to be without merit by authorities.
party suggested that Army Of Angels and or myself had
skimmed money off proceeds raised for our charities during
these special events. An allegation which is beyond
outrageous: Army Of Angels does not even have a bank account
(we are a coalition that works to eliminate crimes against
children) and I have openly offered to have my bank records
reviewed by appropriate parties, though neighther of the
charities benefiting nor regulatory authorities have
requested I do so. Not only did I not ask for or receive a
dime to produce this 50 state campaign, I spent quite a bit
of my own money making it happen, paying for
postage,copies,sponsor meals, child care and even my own
hotel and ground transportation to stay near the venue
during out March 31st/April 1st events.

of 10 who’s primary priority is raising my precious children
I have limited resources. That being said please let it be
known I will not tolerate anyone bullying myself or the
wonderful organization I have been blessed enough to
built-Army Of Angels. We remain cohesive and focused on our
mission of eliminating crimes against children. Anyone who
may have questions regarding this matter is more than…”
Webmaster Note: Physical Evidence will show Ms.
Moore's statement regarding 1) a termination she claims to have
voted for and 2) lack of merit as viewed by authorities, to be
false. Even after Ms. Moore resigned, the legitimate Board of
Directors acted as a unified body to seek a remedy for
violations of California Corporation Codes and California
Government Codes. California has a long history of being a safe
haven for questionable military charities. Judge our
merits based on the small sample of EVIDENCE that follows
and here for a more detailed account.
FACT: Initially, Ms.
Moore's Rebel's with a Cause members were great partners for
some of Patriotwatch.com projects and those of Operation
Homefront Sacramento, Inc. PDN's board and OHSac's legitimate
board members still communicate and work to support our mission.
I DO NOT seek out former members of Rebels With a Cause or any
of Moore's other "charities" ... they have contacted me ON THIER
OWN! And AGAIN... easch is told the same thing:
you're willing to put your NAME on this page along with your
allegations, I will share it."

FACT! A Director was dismissed for
asking about Home Front Heroes Gala income/expenses. Further,
two former board members, one of whom was an active duty
Colonel, were subjected to very malicious statements by Moore's
Gala Committee and after being told the Home Front Heroes Gala
made no profit, they were assaulted for asking:
“Does that mean the total that
came in for the gala was $35,000? ($10,000 from the Title
Sponsor’s check and the $25,000 from sales)? Then we paid out
at least $5,000 to the Grand Ballroom. That should leave
$30,000 minus whatever other expenses there were. What was the
total bill to the Grand Ballroom and what were the other total
expenses? Or do we know?
Did the $4000 for the deposit on next years gala come from that
money? I assume it did.”

be told what this check was for. Has the RWC Foundation ever

Mr. Keith Anthony
Regarding Rebels With a Cause (RWC)
Let me start by saying your concerns are honorable.
As a member of the motorcycle community for over 50
years, I’ve seen the good and bad in people who join
our groups. What I say here can be given to anyone;
IRS, District Attorney or Attorney General, makes no
difference to me. Many people have had these
questions. It’s time someone acts on them. I have no
reason to lie, nothing to gain or lose from being
truthful. I have no vendetta with this club or Ms.
Moore. I left the club of my own free will because
other people were being treated poorly.
I served a two year term as
Chapter President of Rebels With a Cause from May
2004 to May 2006. That came about when Ms. Kathleen
Rene Moore aka Kathleen DeSpain aka Kathleen DeSpain
Moore found it useful for me to be the president. I
had not been a member beforehand. I was not elected
by anyone. I was just appointed to serve. That's the
way Kathleen Moore runs the club.
I asked about the tax exempt status. She gave me an
EIN number from the IRS. The financial reports were
promised. I never saw them. None of us members were
entitled to them nor were they ever discussed in
meetings or passed out in paper form while I was a
Your organization’s experience is not unlike others.
Ms. Moore attaches herself with tales of her
professional PR and Fundraising experience. Her
email address, firstname.lastname@example.org may be as
accurate as it is unprofessional. You will find your
news releases being about Kathleen and organizations
other or more than your own. Worse, she will
attribute the news she writes to someone else. She
did that with Scott Ivy who replaced me as Chapter
President. Another example is attached where she
used her daughter’s name as the author. Make no
mistake, Kathleen wrote it. Many of us have come to
question the many claims she makes in that story
based on her actions rather than her self-serving
From my own personal experiences, Ms. Moore will use
others as her messenger or useful pawns until they
start asking questions. When anyone presses the
point she gets rid of them. We know of several cases
where others were fed and passed on false
accusations as a way to get someone out of the club.
I gave up my membership and position in Rebels With
a Cause because of smoke and mirrors dishonesty from
Kathleen, the group's founder. I would not put
anything past her.
