In the early to mid 2000’s, Rick Friedrich proposed a business deal to EnergenX, Inc., a company headed up by a world famous electrical engineer, John Bedini. Rick Friedrich’s desire was to private label battery chargers and rejuvenators built by John Bedini’s company. Rick Friedrich‘s company name was Renaissance Charge or R-Charge for short.
Rick Friedrich signed a non-disclosure agreement with EnergenX and promised to respect the confidentiality of John Bedini’s proprietary information that went into the chargers. This intellectual property was the sole property of John Bedini and EnergenX.
A few years ago, around 2011, it was discovered that Rick Friedrich had been involved in some shady business deals with many customers in addition to discovering the disappearance of hardware that was the property of EnergenX. It was also discovered that Rick Friedrich had been accessing John Bedini’s computers by sneaking into the building at night and going through the files.
There were also some energizer kits based on John Bedini’s “SG” designs that were manufactured and distributed by Rick Friedrich. One of the larger units was sold by him to someone for thousands of dollars. As soon as Rick Friedrich of R-Charge had this money, he immediately commenced to sell this exact same unit to someone else for the same amount of money. This is one of countless incidents that Rick Friedrich had done to a number of customers.
This quickly became the normal course of operation for Rick Friedrich and John Bedini and his associates and company wanted nothing more to do with him or his way of doing business. Rick Friedrich‘s relationship with EnergenX was immediately terminated and he got the boot. Immediately, Rick Friedrich began to manufacture and sell battery chargers based on EnergenX’s proprietary circuits, albeit older obsolete ones, but nevertheless, this was all in complete violation of the non disclosure agreement that he signed with EnergenX.
Since then, EnergenX and its distributors have collectively received many dozens of complaints from customers because of purchasing battery chargers and never receiving product. These complaints included the fact that they never received customer service. Many of these complaints also included the fact that many of the chargers did not work, worked a short time or simply did not do as claimed. What surprised everyone is when they learned that Rick Friedrich and R-Charge actually had no further relationship with EnergenX and that he was illegally selling low quality bootlegged versions of John Bedini’s chargers.
To this day, Rick Friedrich continues to sell his low quality pirated versions of these chargers and he also holds mini-conferences claiming to be an expert in “free energy” technologies. He claims to be a man of God and most of his websites are dedicated to him preaching the Gospel to others. This is all one big hypocritical act because the truth is that he is nothing more than a common thief and we challenge him to prove otherwise.
If you have been personally ripped off or hoodwinked by Rick Friedrich the charlatan, we invite you to please contact us and submit your story. If you can include your real name, email, mailing address and phone number, we are going to compile all of these complaints and submit them to the Attorney General as long as various federal agencies because the time has come for his dog and pony show to come to and end.
Please let us know if we can post your complaint publicly on this website. We will remove your personal contact information but would like to list your name and location. If you want to remain anonymous, we will respect that as well. If you do not want us to list your complaint at all, that is fine and we will simply reserve it for the Attorney General.

[Rick isn't allowed at the energeticforum above (and probably not at energyscienceforum either) so I agreed to post it for him. But since Rick's response is quite long it wasn't easily posted on the sites. I tried to chop it up on energeticforum but the second post had to be so short it was ridiculous. Therefore I have put it here. If You have come here from any of the forums You might skip down to "continued below"]
Personal Attacks against me for promoting Free Energy Technology. Recently I decided to finally give a response to the slander of John Bedini against me and set the record straight considering that he has recently passed away and never bothered to clear up a slander he published against me. I ignored this for about four years as he was the type to want to fight about things and I wasn't going to satisfy him in that way. After I recently posted a series of videos of John and I working together and details about our relationship in these matters I expected some more attacks which have now started. Here are my videos that give a little sliver of the real story: Why John Bedini and Rick Friedrich Parted Ways. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DJ-QH3h-xo Bedini Tesla Switch, What's wrong with it? It KILLS Batteries! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1FyajzU3So John C Bedini 14' Ferris Wheel Presentation at the Nov 2010 Renaissance Charge Convention. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlcfSi0mT3U John C Bedini 14' Ferris Wheel Construction Typical Day in the Shop Part 1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tf79Q0NXIn8 John C Bedini 14' Ferris Wheel Construction Typical Day in the Shop Part 2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Y7PHmSkQ6c John C Bedini 14' Ferris Wheel Construction Pre-Convention Setup Part 3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HBGmCLqBAvg John C Bedini Motors Closeup from 2005. Original 1984 Tesla Switch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kiHmn6-l7h4 [The next video only indirectly pertains to what I am saying here, and that is that I had a close relationship with John and we did many videos together like this.] Howard Johnson's Original Trains Demonstration with John Bedini and Rick Friedrich https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13zTJz3VXnM The following in quotation was posted on a website and reposted on a competitors forum by a person who is unwilling to share who they are, which should be a sign that their attacks are cowardly and mistaken. See if you can connect the dots: “In the early to mid 2000’s, Rick Friedrich proposed a business deal to EnergenX, Inc., a company headed up by a world famous electrical engineer, John Bedini.” In the mid 2000's I volunteered to help people in finding free energy systems. Renaissance Charge was later started to sell battery chargers invented by several people, one of whom was me. The idea of each charger and much of its functionality was created by me. I never signed any contract with any company pertaining to these chargers. They were a mutual effort. I did the testing of them and it was my label that was always on these chargers. There is no patent on these chargers. And Energenx patents expired two years ago, and I never violated their patents with these chargers. I have presented video evidence of these facts.
“Rick Friedrich’s desire was to private label battery chargers and rejuvenators built by John Bedini’s company. Rick Friedrich‘s company name was Renaissance Charge or R-Charge for short.” There is no evidence of my chargers having a private label. There is no testimony or contract stating any such thing. Renaissance was a partnership but was never owned by Bedini and never had a contract with Energenx. Energenx did partly manufacture for Renaissance for a while but did not have the exclusive rights over these battery chargers as they were not 100% their own creation. Information was freely shared with me and my staff and research and development was also shared as we worked together to develop these chargers. I was invited to Hayden Idaho to do this very thing after things were falling apart there after they got rid of an employee. Prior to my involvement there was no actual product and in all appearance there never would have been anything done (as also shown by what happened after I stopped being involved with these people). I was given complete hard drives by Energenx by John Bedini several times. This I have record of, witness of from others, and emails by John admitting this. I have kept thousands of emails and videos of all these kinds of details. I have shown a few samples recently to show I can back up everything I say here. “Rick Friedrich signed a non-disclosure agreement with EnergenX and promised to respect the confidentiality of John Bedini’s proprietary information that went into the chargers.” In fact I never signed a non-disclosure agreement with Energenx as I have shown. I watched Energenx selectively ask people to sign such documents. Gary Bedini, CEO of Energenx did keep all company papers, including all NDAs, in an unlocked filing cabinet right beside the front door of their office. This door was left open most work days from 4AM to 5PM and people actually did walk into that office and were free to walk around and access absolutely anything about the company in paper and on four different unprotected computers in the offices and shop. The two girls worked in the back area of the shop and were not able to know if people entered into the office area. John would come in as early as 7AM but mostly 8AM. He would never be in the office area either. He would be in the shop. Gary was the only person in the office and would come in at 9AM or later. At any time people could walk in and access Gary's computer which had everything pertaining to Energenx on it. It had no password protection, and neither did 3 other computers in the building. In Gary's desk he had the keys to the shop, along with a flash drive of all the charger details, right in the top drawer. Another computer was around the corner and was often left on with all the details of the chargers on them. People were freely allowed to use that computer to access the internet and do email unwatched. There was absolutely zero protection against any intellectual property at Energenx for many years. However, at Renaissance, all computers were password protected and sensitive computers were locked up in a safe. Doors were locked when people were not present. No important documents were left for the public to discover as Energenx did. In Energenx NDA's it clearly states that they were responsible for safeguarding their intellectual property. They were required by their own words to place such information in a secure place and indicate that it was such. And yet they left computers unsecured, flashdrives unsecured, computes on with the very information on the screen for anyone to see. The upstairs of the office was actually a museum as people became aware of because of the EFTV video series. So people naturally wanted to come in and visit. It would have taken anyone 10 minutes to walk in and gather everything about Energenx without them ever finding out. They could have fully accessed 3 comptures in the office areas alone from 4AM to 9AM without the workers or John ever knowing. I know because I was right next door, as were my staff who witnessed this, along with many customers over the years. People would just walk in if the door was open. They would walk around and see all of this unsecured. Sometimes the workers were out back of the building smoking and so the entire building was empty and anyone could walk around freely. This concerned me so I eventually put my own door chime on the front door as well as a sign that said please knock. No one at Energenx had any concern for security or contracts or doing proper business as countless people have experienced. So all NDA's that they had with anyone were null and void by their own wording. None of my staff signed any and when we were moving out John Bedin came around and tried to get us to sign them. We refused. Why try and get us to sign such papers when we were leaving? The NDA's also did not have a place to sign your name and were not notarized. They had a printed name line and places to sign your initials but no place to put your signature, and no witnesses or way of proving they were not fabricated. And again, every one of them was null and void by their own wording and contradiction to the practice of Energenx. I did what I could to help these people in so many ways without ever receiving any money from them. I helped the workers set up their work stations properly so that they could make chargers better. I had to listen to Johns one way ramblings for 3 hours every day because that was what he expected from me. The recent videos I posted show how much John and Gary depended upon me with so many things. They constantly asked me questions about so many things. You can go through the 11 hours of video and get a real picture of how things were these ways with these people. “This intellectual property was the sole property of John Bedini and EnergenX.” This is a false statement in many respects. It is from a person who will not even share their name. How can this be proven? There was no protected intellectual property. There was no place for intellectual property to be protected. There was no indication of private intellectual property. John Bedini himself backed up a harddrive and gave it to me. I have record of this. After I left he wanted that harddrive back. I gave it to him. I have witnesses and record of that. Who is this nameless person who claims otherwise? The information about the chargers was developed with me so we shared that information together. This was a mutual project. There was never any contract or any understanding that this was solely Energenx property. Just as John had freely shared details about the motor Energizers with the public, so he shared details about the chargers with people not working for Energenx and many can testify. Any information was freely given. Much information was copied by John and others from others also. So one has to show that they actually have private property before they can claim it was violated. One has to secure intellectual property in order for it to even be called that by their own definition in the NDA's themselves. John was in the habit of giving out information to the internet and then later trying to get Yahoo to take down the whole group. This we witnessed many times and can see his constant treats along these lines. But once you give something away you cannot later claim it is private. This is childish and foolish. Other shareholders in Energenx were concerned about his practice in this respect. Anyone who was around in those years is perfectly aware of John and Gary's unprofessional practices in these regards. It is only non-local people who came to the conventions or who idolized John who take up this kind of ignorant attack against me in this way. Unless you can figure out who really is behind this... “A few years ago, around 2011, it was discovered that Rick Friedrich had been involved in some shady business deals with many customers in addition to discovering the disappearance of hardware that was the property of EnergenX.” More unsubstantiated slander. Who discovered this? What hardware was missing? Why did Energenx or John never inform me of such? There is no record of such a thing. I got a letter from Energenx lawyer about items they gave me which they said in the letter they lent me, that I returned. Such was a battery capacity analyzer and a DC motor for a fun boat. I returned such items in 2012 and filmed doing that with Gary Bedini receiving them. I still have the recording. Gary and his lawyer never mentioned anything else missing. This is pure slander. Also, I freely housed Energenx stuff in my shop for 3 years. Their big batteries, forklift, many boxes, and even John's expensive Corvette and hot rod. As for business deals, what deals? There were some orders that were delayed, as Energenx had failed to deliver product and also had changed product and had started to hire people that made junk. I had to deal with this and that was one reason I left these people. John had decided to make his own chargers. Yes, John did not make the first chargers. He did not know digital programming and so when he made his own chargers they were very limited and they also failed. I still have one charger he made with his circuit that caught on fire. He made the first solar chargers with 1 oz trace copper and so they all failed and burned up. He sent them out to my customers without me being there or examining them first. That was the first step in our tensions. But he strongly encouraged me to work with people claiming to be engineers who actually were fake. One guy messed everything he touched and then John wanted to blame me for his mistakes. He always had someone to blame but himself. But I have recorded him as admitting these were his mistakes. He had abandoned our earlier chargers for his own, but they were not as good as I saw and as the customers informed me. He never cared what the customer wanted and just did his own thing. Everyone can see this attitude in his published videos. People asked him questions but he just said what he wanted about something else. No amount of editing could remove this arrogant attitude. I created these products for my customers, but it was always a fight with him. The solar products were the biggest failure. “It was also discovered that Rick Friedrich had been accessing John Bedini’s computers by sneaking into the building at night and going through the files.” How was this discovered? Why would I need to go through computers at night when I had full access to them by day in front of everyone, along with others visitors who had the same access? Just ignorant foolishness from someone not familiar with the shop. It was also discovered that I started WW1 and later WW2. And which one was it, me or my clone? John told us all that we were just all a bunch of clones, or copies of clones. This is funny, John actually had given us a big screen computer that we called the “Big Mac”. In the end he asked for it back and we gave it to him. There was a smaller Mac that was usually left on that everyone had access to in the office area. These had similar files on them. John had another computer upstairs in the museum that rarely was used. I saw him on it once in a while but I never accessed that or his personal computer without him right there. So in fact it was discovered by me and my staff that anyone could walk into their office and shop and find out whatever they wanted until I made efforts to better secure the place. Even then their staff continually left doors open and people continually came in at all times of the day or late night. How was I sneaking into their building when I had full access to it? What files was I going through at night that I had not access to by day? Just ridiculous! Maybe the same thing happened with me with the the gold at Fort Knox! “There were also some energizer kits based on John Bedini’s “SG” designs that were manufactured and distributed by Rick Friedrich. One of the larger units was sold by him to someone for thousands of dollars. As soon as Rick Friedrich of R-Charge had this money, he immediately commenced to sell this exact same unit to someone else for the same amount of money. This is one of countless incidents that Rick Friedrich had done to a number of customers.” Not sure what that is supposed to mean. I sold kits. Yes. I sold more than one of the same. Most people were happy. Some kits were delayed. Sometimes there were shipping problems. Sometimes there were mixups, as happens with all businesses. “This quickly became the normal course of operation for Rick Friedrich and John Bedini and his associates and company wanted nothing more to do with him or his way of doing business.” This is not what happened. They wanted me to sell their new junk chargers that were failing left and right. Then they went behind my back and took my dealers from me. Then they sent out chargers with my label on them and gave me nothing for it. They sent out chargers that failed and expected me to pay for their mistakes. They even used my testimonies for years! I helped these guys but they could not be helped. In the end their fruit manifested as it really was. Did I get messed up in all that? Yes, and it cost me a lot. I put my heart into all this and people who know me understand my dedication. I did these guys no wrong. I did fail some people at times under all that stress. But there is a bigger picture that such slanderers care not to look at or admit. “Rick Friedrich‘s relationship with EnergenX was immediately terminated and he got the boot.” I was not terminated. I was always my own owner. I never got any boot. That is also ridiculous. I left these guys. We first moved down the road to get away from John constantly coming into my shop and yelling about the end of the world and constantly threatening to retire and stop everyone from living. This was beyond paranoia and being melancholy. We couldn't take it any longer and could not partake in their bad business practices. I got continuous complaints from Energenx shareholders about the manipulation of stock and them being scammed by them. We had to get away from these people and we did. I had created and owned several email groups. I gave John co-ownership eventually. And he had the ability to remove me as an owner. One day he did that and then shut down the groups as he had joked about doing as I recently showed the video of. He said he cared but he really didn't care about all these free energy enthusiasts. In my last talk with him I recorded him in all his bitterness and hatred for the people who worshiped him. Probably the very person who wrote this being one of them. I have him recorded as saying how much of a fool they were. He talked behind everyone's back. He said the most nasty things. He really didn't care. He even talked bad about those who considered him his friend. I'm not mentioning these big names but I have recordings. You can see a little of this in what I put out in the videos. There was no boot, but he did boot people off the groups, and even the groups themselves. I have recorded the video of Gary begging me to not leave them. So this is a complete distortion of what happened. “Immediately, Rick Friedrich began to manufacture and sell battery chargers based on EnergenX’s proprietary circuits, albeit older obsolete ones, but nevertheless, this was all in complete violation of the non disclosure agreement that he signed with EnergenX.” There is no evidence of any of this. First of all, there was no proprietary circuits by definition and admission in the NDA's. There was no secured information. There was no NDA given to me to sign. There was no place dedicated for such information to be secured. There was not even a password on any computer. There was no place where these were locked up. When did I sign this NDA supposedly? I first went there in 2005 and as I recently posted the videos, I was given a full tour with camera. If that was 2005 that I supposedly signed this then if I did something in 2012 or 2013 how does this make sense? What does this supposed NDA say? The fact is that I never signed any NDA with these people because we developed these chargers together. We both owned them. According to top patent lawyers I consulted in these matters I had the perfect right to sell my own technology. We both did. If they had issue with that they would have taken me to court. I did not have an NDA or contract with Energenx, and they did not have a patent on anything I sold after I moved away from them. No NDA, no Contract, no Patent, no Deal. No proprietary information either by their own admission. And I did not manipulate them, but they did that to me. How many times throughout the years did they promise me stock in Energenx. They even went around telling my friends that helped with my convention that they would be given stock which I also recorded. How much work did I give them over the years to manufacture these chargers? I did these guys well. I sat in on countless meetings with Gary and potential investors as his technical adviser because Gary did not know the difference between a resistor and a diode as I showed in recent video of John alluding to the same fact. I tried to help these guys but then such investors would go over to John and he would always turn them away with his end of the world melancholy delusions. How many engineers did he insult and drive away also? Anyway, I didn't violate any NDA because I never signed any. Nor was any Energenx NDA valid as they were in several fundamental contradictions with their own words. If I had violated anything they would have taken me to court. I told their lawyer this and went over all these details with him for 2 hours. Then I never heard from him or them again. I had sat in on their year long internal conflict with their lawyer and a top shareholder. I watched that daily progress. And how was that solved? With one of my motors. These guys were so contradictory and so full of bark but no bite. They dragged me through all of that. I was just trying to help them, but they were in retirement mode and did what they wanted to do. I asked this question on my video recently. How could Gary be CEO of small electronics companies for almost 40 years and not know the first thing about electronics? How could John have him in that position? Why not spend just one day and learn the very basics of electronics and help out a little more? Do you know how embarrassing this was? Why did John keep people like this in such positions? Why were not staff trained to know basic electronics? I had my staff train other staff in such matters so they could work better. The point is that the whole foundation of Energenx was messed up. I had just assumed better and by the time I saw it all for what it was I was deep into it. And I really tried to improve things. I did succeed for a season but it was altogether rotten. They had professionals try to help them which they drove away. The whole thing ended up as a nightmare. I should have known better. But like so many of you out there, I fell for the sensational story-line of this legend. Now I see that it is all copied stuff and there is virtually no originality in this legend. Gary told me daily how I and another had messed John up to make him think more highly of himself than he should have. So now I have to undo this mess. “Since then, EnergenX and its distributors have collectively received many dozens of complaints from customers because of purchasing battery chargers and never receiving product.” Energenx was not in the habit of answering their phones or caring about customers. I in fact received such complaints about their products in the last years. It is funny that this unknown person speaks for Energenx when it doesn't exist and this person is nameless. “These complaints included the fact that they never received customer service. Many of these complaints also included the fact that many of the chargers did not work, worked a short time or simply did not do as claimed.” This is easy to say when you are competition. It is easy to say such things. Any business will get some people who are not happy for one reason or another. People expect every battery to come back but some batteries are very damaged beyond repair. We do not promise every battery can be restored. But some customers have been using these chargers for 10 years now daily and have restored countless batteries. Some of these are in different places around the world and have a battery reconditioning businesses. At the beginning I could have made a business just fixing batteries for myself, but I decided to give this to the world. These are not obsolete chargers. They stand the test of time. They continue to work after 10 years of daily use. They call me up and buy more chargers because they work and last. I brought my prices down. Bedini replaced these with junk chargers, less functionality and raised the prices. You be the judge. “What surprised everyone is when they learned that Rick Friedrich and R-Charge actually had no further relationship with EnergenX and that he was illegally selling low quality bootlegged versions of John Bedini’s chargers.” Who is everyone? What is a bootlegged version? Who owns these things? By what right? If it was illegal then why did they not address that? The truth is that we both owned what was inside the boesx, and that is why my label was on it the whole time. It was the Renaissance Charger, not the Energenx charger. They developed on their own the Bedini chargers, which were actually bad quality and with less functionality. This kind of website and slander fits right in with the Bedini distorted history of things. “To this day, Rick Friedrich continues to sell his low quality pirated versions of these chargers and he also holds mini-conferences claiming to be an expert in “free energy” technologies.” I do not sell low quality chargers. Nor are these pirated. Who is this nameless person? People have probably guessed by now. I do not claim to be an expert in free energy. I share what I know. People ask for such meetings and I share what I can. People are satisfied with the meetings. I don't just give words that practically result in nothing but hype as John and others did. I demonstrate and make it practical. John always told me to never do such things. Just talk he said. Don't bother with kits and helping people. Now I may not be an expert, but show me who is today? If John and associates were experts, why did they never give anyone any product? Why did they never use any free energy? Yes John had a solar panel on his back yard roof, but why never use his motors? Why turn down the Ontario Government when they wanted free energy? What about the Chinese deal? Why so many Americans? One guy was taken for a quarter of a million. Why show a big wheel with so much hype when I could show it running off one coil as I now have shown that video? Why not show people who this free energy has come from as I have? Why not show the Tesla Switch is a battery killer? If people claim to be experts, why do they not use the technology themselves? At least I have and my customers have. Who is the only one to have sold such things to the world for 10 years? Me. Do I not get a little grace for doing so much work? No, I get attacked by those who worship an idol, who wish to sell words without benefit, who dwell in the land of hype and scam. Such people hide behind no name websites because if they told you who they were everyone would see why the spread these lies. But it should be obvious who they are. “He claims to be a man of God and most of his websites are dedicated to him preaching the Gospel to others. This is all one big hypocritical act because the truth is that he is nothing more than a common thief and we challenge him to prove otherwise.” Says this unknown antagonist. This is actually obvious persecution. Look, I got into this whole thing by volunteer. I did not come here looking to sell anything. I mastered the motor systems after 6 months and then just set up a bunch of groups to help people. “Everyone” knows my work in that respect. You can see how Bedini praised me for that work himself. And this long after the supposed email exchanges with Stan M that John posted a distortion of on his pages. He praised me until he didn't need me anymore. People asked for my help. John asked for my help. I gave 3 years of my life to help everyone. Then people demanded that parts and kits be made available. So I did that. I gave what I could give because people asked. I waited for John to develop chargers. He had a radiant oscillator but it couldn't work as a product as they later found out. He had an investor but they never wanted to do sales so no chargers were sold by them after many years of existence. Then I came along and made things happen. All can agree to this. Without me they would never have sold anything as I said. I knew what people wanted and came up with the idea of the first spanker charger for automotive application. Initially my partner and I wanted to do this for the RV application, but having been a mechanic for years I decided to go with what I knew well. So we all worked at this product together. I have all the daily emails to prove this. We did the same for the power tool charger. Then also for the bigger rejuvenator. This was undeveloped and I gave the structure to these chargers. No, I did not do all the work, as others did a lot of the work. But it was a joint effort, which Bedini had very little to do with. I helped them after they let go one of their staff. I did not receive a penny for any of that help. The remaining staff really appreciated me because I helped them daily when I didn't have to do any of that. You can see this from Gary and Jonn themselves in our daily interaction. This absolutely contradicts the story-line of this attack against me. And I have a lot more video and audio and email facts to show this. But this person doesn't even say their name. There was no person close enough to the Bedini's to be able to say any of these things. It is all just the competition trying to attack me to build up their agenda. Maybe it is because I have shared so much more information this last year and these guys would rather spend their time attacking someone who is actually doing something rather than helping the world themselves. The last part is a joke as well. The whole attack against me pertains to matters of ignorance about my relationship with Energenx and who owns what. Why would people contact such nameless people? Why remain nameless other than to conceal one's real intentions? This is just obvious slander. I have helped people for years for free. I sold people what they asked for. I have demonstrated my products for years. The reward I get from helping the wrong people is that they stab me in the back. Well, their fruit is manifest to all. I have made my share of mistakes, but I did not wrong these people as they have wronged me and many others. I could not put up with it any longer. While I have been under attack, I have not given up. And the truth comes out in the end. Rick
NON DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT
So lets just say JB sent me a copy of Ricks non disclosure… so Rick is a liar, I have seen the non disclosure myself. when John emailed it to rick a copy of it, he accused them of forgery. but you see I was there when he signed it, we did it at the same time in front of Gary. we were all there and saw it first hand. I have never seen anyone who says so much while saying so little, its always a he said -he said with him, and whoever has the hours to write nonsense wins.
its almost impossible to answer him because he is so verbose, it would take hours and hours to respond to each point. that is his mode of operation, talk so much, lie so consistently that you just wave your hands and walk away.
There was a time when he worked in concert with JB of course, there was a time when I worked closely with him also. John initiated the termination of the working relationship with him for so many reasons.
over half of what he posted is just simply a lie, he is a pathological liar. I talked with Ronda B and she asked me if there was any way to get his crap off of youtube, the Bedini’s were screwed over by him so many times and so many ways. Eventually we will put up some info that will be plain for all to see.
I asked him to remove my testimonial video from his website and even sent him the case law to show how it was illegal to continue to use it. he refused, and said i could sue him.
This can quickly become a shouting match, but you only have to know a few things. those of us, all of us that were closest to him, those that helped him at the conferences for free, those that put in 20+ hours for a week, that moderated his forums and handled warranty emails for free, all of us, as a man have repudiated his business and his dealings. He screwed over his investors.
I know the guy who paid for that 30 coil machine, it was meant to be a research tool. Rick sold it to some Chinese investors, and did not tell my friend who paid 13 grand to have it built. oh he sold it for 30K my friend was apoplectic when he heard about it.
rick did all of this without John and Gary’s permission. John actually told the Chinese not to buy it, but they did anyway.
I have pictures of me in china with the investors, I did not know the 30 coil went their until I saw it in their lab. they asked me to come over and do some work with the machines, this was after their relationship with Rick went south.
rick, who claims to be a man of God, mocked my faith publicly in front of His family, and in front of Ronda and John, when we were at dinner at the first Sandpoint conference.
if he has changed good for him, but he needs to come clean in his dealings.
the time will come when he will have to pay for his dealings.

Rick’s Response #02
this is a response to Tom C
Who is the liar Tom? Now I have you on record as a liar. You were there when? You came around a few times, and I believe only to one convention (and maybe Sandpoint also). Are you saying I signed some document in front of you?? What a joke. What year was that? 2005 when I first visited? You were not even around then. If they wanted me to sign something it would have been at the beginning when I saw everything and even filmed it. But in fact John wanted me and my staff to sign NDS's when we were moving away in 2012! We just laughed about that yesterday. You were not there when we were leaving or at the beginning. You do not have proof as I do. So do I put your name on a paper and tell everyone you have a NDA with me? I'm sure everyone will believe that. I'm sure you were also there when they signed the Magna Carta which makes you so credible Tom. You can make up whatever story you want, but it will not fit with the facts. People sign NDAs before they see private information. You were never around, only a few times. You were not around at the beginning. So you just proved you are a liar. You and Koorn stand to gain as my competition. Everyone can see this. You make yourself like some kind of big player in all this, but you were just a groupy. I know what that was like as I fell into that myself at the beginning. But it is time for children to grow up and stop idolizing a man who was not what you make him out to be. You don't even know what he said about you and Koorn and others like you. He cared less about you. I recorded him at the end saying so much stuff about people like you. He had little respect for anyone. You guys never knew what you were doing and never understood the technology. People saw that. Marcia did a better job of moderating. You guys tried but you never really got how this stuff works. But it was clear you just wanted to be part of the action and a cool guy in the mix. So you betrayed me in the end and you served your master. And no you really didn't know him. I knew these guys for years daily. You just came to visit a few times to listen to stories. You and Koorn knew nothing of the day to day operations at Energenx. People who came around a few times a year had no idea of what happened. I showed in video what it was like for everyone to see. This contradicts everything you guys say. (continued below) Yeah it is impossible to respond to the truth when you are a liar. You just swell words of slander out of thin air. Bottom line is you are on record for lying about witnessing a NDA signing. There is no signature on their NDA's either! Also, you are the competition. You did not work closely with me or John. You just build yourself up so large Tom. We made the 24V rejuvenator for you because you were supposed to sell these to fun centers everywhere, but you only bought a few. I have you on record telling everyone that you had great success with those chargers for 3 years. But you never got on board to sell as you promised. I'm not faulting you for that as sales can be a burden or whatever. But you never worked with any of us closely. And I know what John said about you and everyone. Just watch those 10 hours and see what they said about people even when they knew they were being filmed. You can ignore all that and all my points but everyone else will not and they will know who you really are, even the ones who are your buddies. They can have no real respect for you in this Tom. I can own up to my mistakes but none of you can as you are blind arrogant people. I worked hard and gave you people opportunity. Your whole camp just took over what I built up and then have the nerve to tear me down giving me no respect for all the work I did. I tried Tom, but you guys have no idea of all the scandal, contradiction and foolishness that went on. You judge from the outside. You blame me for things that actually were John's fault. I know what it was like to visit every now and then and everything looks peachy. I did that in 2005 and 2006 in a good number of flights and drives 4000 miles. But this is altogether different when you live there among people. John and I were close as you can see in the videos. He was not close to hardly anyone. You were not close to him. It took time to really get to know him. He had his bad times and better times. I never did him wrong. The worst thing I did was accidentally nick the paint off his old Harley when the lift bar fell back. I fessed up to that and yet he never really forgave that accident. I only blew up at him once after he was acting crazy. And he actually smiled that I finally did that after years of his nonsense. Are you aware of what he called himself to us daily? Probably not. He said he was "an Ass" and no one disputed that. He could be nice and sometimes give things away to staff. But he also admitted some of his problems and told us this daily. You can see a sanitized version of this in the 11 hours of video. I had to remove swear words from the recording, and other parts people would not appreciate. But you can get my point. He was no superhero as you make out. He was no saint and never claimed to be. It was very hard to reason with him. So you can see I did what I did and he played with his toys and baked bread or played with crystals for years. I had to do my time with him as an emotional need he had. 3 hours a day I listened to him rant and rave about the end of the world and everything under the sun. But I'm sure you were there for all that, hiding behind a peep hole somewhere witnessing everything. Eventually Chuck came around and I didn't have to waste that 3 hours a day. But eventually he would wonder over to my shop and follow me around the same way. He would do that with the other staff, and his staff. He did that back in California so Gary moved the workers to another location. John talked, and I heard it all. I heard when he was sober and when he was tipsy and drunk. And I was mistaken about him after I got to know him very well. You are like I was at the beginning, a visitor who defends him at all cost and never could be open to truth. I know what that is like Tom. I remember people like me warning me about their history. I passed over that and am to blame for how much I promoted all this. I am not saying the SSG is bad or doesn't work, etc. We are talking about politics here as that is what you want. I have met a lot of people over these 13 years who have had dealings with these people. Some are out thousands, others hundreds of thousands, and then there is ... who is out the most. If you knew anything about this history you know who I am talking about, and that is not me by any means. Yes I will out talk you because I have the real facts and have recorded them and I have actually done the work while people like you two get to benefit from my work and then pick me apart. As for Ronda, I never had issue with her. She was nice and understanding. I did them no wrong. We went out to dinner every Friday for some years. John begged me to never stop doing that no matter what happened in the shop. I did that until I could no longer. You guys make it out like John fired me or something, but you completely misunderstand what was going on. I tried to give you a feel for what life was really like with us in the videos. You see both John and Gary asking me about everything. I was always helping these guys, they depended upon me for countless things. You can see if you watched the videos that John admits Gary didn't know the first thing about electronics. How can you explain that? I tried to help them and I did a lot. But I could not fix the serious problems. And when I realized how big and deep the mess really was I pulled away as quietly as I could. I have the video of Gary begging me to come back to them and work it out. I have John talking over an hour to me in our last conversation saying what he really thought about you guys in the FE community. Now that is a huge embarrassment and it is so foul. Also what he said to my staff in their last visits to his shop. He was recording everyone on the phone as it was a one party state in recording laws, so I decided to do the same with him. These guys were all talk and no bite. They did with you what they did with me, talk behind your backs. You can see this and if you were really around more than a few times then you would have witnessed them do that. I had to listen to them go back and forth like that with the internal Energenx legal dispute for a year! Say one thing on the phone and then another after. What a dysfunctional mess! You will make up so much stuff Tom (why not do something constructive?). You may even put up some of my mistakes. I have failed. I did what I could. And under so much pressure I failed at times. I still fail at times. I did let my spiritual life slide during those Idaho years and I am not proud of that. You can kick me for that, I deserve it. God is our Judge in these matters. I have much to be ashamed of. But I didn't sign any NDA with Bedini and I did those guys no wrong. At times I failed customers and did what I could to make things good. You can hang me for messing up a few times out of thousands of good things. But who are you Mr Self-righteous? You talk like a typical politician who supports his party at all costs and never can admit anything wrong in himself or his idol. You are not realistic. You are not a real person Tom and everyone can see it now. I have given blood, sweet and tears to make things happen and everyone knows it. And I continue to do that and will continue. You guys have tried to erase me from history. I see how the storyline has changed. How many videos were actually done by me that you are not aware of? Who is the one who made so much of this happen? Tom, I had no training in any of this. I don't claim to be some expert. I just tried to help where I could because people asked me. You wanted things so I gave them to you. John and Gary wanted a whole lot more and I gave them what I could. But unfortunately I got mixed up in their mess and I fell for the false legend story line for a season. I own up to that now. Beat me down for that if you want. You cannot give something to someone and then demand it back. The law does not work that way Tom. You made a video where you admitted how good the chargers are and what they have done and after you turn on me then you demand it be removed. You can complain all you want but it is all the same as John giving out info on the groups or to visitors and then demanding Yahoo to shut down a group or trying to get someone years later to sign an NDA. Who is the fool Tom? Tom, you say all of you knew me closely. How was that when I only met you what two or three times at the most? Did we ever talk on the phone? No. So how were you close to me? We went out to eat a few times. There were emails no doubt, but you didn't know me at all. And you lie again in saying all of you are one man. Just you and Koorn. Not the others, so you lie. Marcia was before you and you didn't know her. Josh is still my friend and is not supportive of your lies and attacks against me. You and Koorn are out to get me because you are a diehard groupy of John's and are commercially motivated to attack me as your competitor. I made the mistake of sending over Koorn to China after they ran the motors without batteries. I really didn't want to go to China and deal with them. They were nice but that was going nowhere. So I set up Koorn nicely with them but he didn't know the monopole just as you didn't. I remember you guys all sitting there at one Convention meal we had and asking me together, Rick, so what is the secret to making this all work? Then I realized that you guys really didn't understand the first thing about this technology, and didn't understand John either. No wonder the lists failed during those years. But it was my fault in letting people who did not know the technology try to help others. So then you both got proud and act like you know something or are something because you were there with the legend a few times. Whatever Tom. I never had investors. Not sure what that means. Who is the one who took people's money and never delivered anything. The list is to the sky Tom. But you don't know anything about such things as you were not around. You lived far away and did not have a part with the operations. As for the guy who bought the one 30 coiler, he was and still is a good friend of mine. We have no issue with that motor. This is Tom making up false arguments that are hearsay and conjecture. I never sold a motor for 30k. And I guess everyone is Tom's friend and everyone hates me. And I guess I could say Tom sold this and that to anyone. Tom, you know everything. Don't you realize that you have confirmation bias. It is so obvious. But worse, you have to make up stuff. But look, you twist everything to fit your agenda. If something MAY be bad you assume it IS because you are given to ad hominem arguments and assumptions. You call yourself a Christian but you are the unrighteous judge and liar. You guys all betrayed me. You all turned against me. Maybe it was because I showed too much. John also said not do make any kit or demonstrate anything. I never asked for John's permission for these things. He was not the boss. He worked for me. You all just don't realize. Yes I tried to help them, but they manufactured product for me. Three companies depended upon me for income. I didn't ask for permission. I made things and paid people to make them and that was that. And because people asked for them. Then when I built up and showed the boat running and other things maybe it went too far and you people wanted to shut me down. Who knows what motivates people? But John said not to show anything. But when I did he went along with things. When you all betrayed me I sold off my prototypes. That was fine for me to do. I had better ones to develop anyways. As for the Chinese, I really didn't care for that deal. They gave a lot of money and who knows what happened there. I sold my stuff to pay the bills. John put pressure on me to sell more but he destroyed all this with his problems. He brought in .... and he ruined everything he touched. Then blamed me. So then he got upset that the sales were down and they couldn't pay their bills (and I still get calls from vendors who were never paid, just the other day). But this summer I learned that 250k was given them by people who never got anything from them during that same time period. I see now that the story goes so much deeper... Anyway, there is nothing wrong with me selling my prototypes to pay the bills. I guess that is some crime. Again, I was not under anything with John and Gary as you can see in the videos. They worked for me and I helped them function. Permission. Hah! My relationship with the Chinese did not go South even though they are far east. lol. I talked to them and that was it. I didn't have the opportunity or interest to go to China and definitely have reservations with doing anything China related. There was no bad ending with me and these people. I never mocked your faith. You went on and on about raising the dead and you actually sounded presumptuous. If I had mocked you in any way you would not have stayed around or been involved. It is so easy for you guys to praise me on one side of your face and when things go bad to deny it later and make it look all bad. You have no idea Tom. I am very familiar with your particular brand of Christianity and I can tolerate it. But John hated the kind of attitude you displayed there. (Remember, I know his family history and you don't.) And he told me so. But he didn't turn away people who wanted to help and praise him. You just fell for it like others. If you had a problem with me at the time you should have talked to me from one Christian to another. But you are known by your fruit to all Tom. I would that I could be reconciled to all people. I have spent a great deal of my life making right the wrongs I have done to others as I have shared in my testimony. I was deeply grieved when both Bedini's died, more than you could have known. I was very sad with what they did to me and refused to make things right. Does a liar admit to shedding many tears for his enemy? I am a peacemaker and try to work things out. But you are all war and evil assuming and lying. You have no Christian grace in any respect. You treat me worse than a dog. You have no interest in reconciliation. No honesty of heart. All is confirmation bias. And now you have demonstrated that to the world. Tom, we will all have to give an account of our dealings and our attitudes before God. It is not man you have to worry about. You live by popularity vote. You have the money and the upper hand but what does all that matter? In a few years we will all see everything as it really happened and will have One Judge. This is the One that said anyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ will be persecuted, and that daily. Those in the truth walk the narrow road Tom. They get abused by the world. Sometimes they fall but by God's grace they get up. The presumptuous ones kick them when they are down. Even their own friends, if you remember Job, can mock them when it looks bad. But God knows His people and the life of sacrifice they are called to. The truth eventually comes out. People can see all this Tom. But I know people will believe what they want depending on their bent and heart. Most people are given like you to confirmation bias. I spend a great deal of time looking at my own heart in this regard in all areas of life. I'm not motivated by what others think, but by what is the truth. Believe what you want for now, one day it will work against you... Rick
