Multiple Sites Remain Up
Keith W Smith
Keith W. Smith, using the limited forum of Facebook, confessed recently to Academic and Professional Fraud at the beginning of this month.
In that confession, he announced that he was removing his personal Website as well as the Website for Healing Communities. It has been almost a month, and the following sites remain up, promoting Keith’s services or his past claimed credentials. The Author of this site (Bart Breen) is aware of other reasons for the removal of these sites than what has been posted publicly, and chose not to reveal those instead giving Keith and Jeanne Elder Smith the opportunity to follow through on their commitment to address these issues. That forbearance may soon end.
It has now been almost a full month and in this time there has been little evidence of any real desire to address all the issues involved. The Smith’s have gone silent publicly with a few exceptions in Simple Church Forums where they make no reference to Keith’s partial confession and attempt to carry on with “business as usual.”
Click on the Headings below to be taken to the sites in question. The information was correct and on the live sites at the time of posting of this article, If they have been updated since in response to this post, that is encouraging, but sad also that it requires continued public exposure for Keith and Jeanne Smith to do the right thing and follow-up on other sites where they promote their services and attempt to raise funds. Other sites beyond this may still be in existence. This is not an exhaustive list, and simply serves as an example that other sites under the control of the Smith’s have not been removed, updated nor has any other admission of Keith’s wrong-doing appeared in the forums where he advertised his fraudulent services.

Keith W. Smith PhD?
(Note. On Sept 1, 2014, Keith Smith publicly confessed to some of the academic and professional fraud pointed out in this article) He has made no contact with me nor any public statement I am aware of acknowledging his attempts here to libel me with the statements he made on Facebook and which he and his wife Jeanne Elder Smith have made in other forums when they were continuing to lie and defend what he now confesses partially to.)
For the second time in a week, Keith W Smith and Jeanne Elder Smith have violated Facebook Community Standards and had a post removed under the category of harassment and hate speech. What is particularly sad about it this time is that they used the Facebook Page “Healing Communities” which represents itself as a safe place for people to share problems and struggles in their lives. This “safe place” attacked Bart Breen and accused him of being an internet troll and mental illness. What is even more disturbing about this, is that Keith W. Smith claims to be a psychologist who offers services to help people in this area. What sort of reputable psychologist would attempt to diagnose and then personally attack somebody publicly using alleged mental illness as a weapon? That’s a violation of basic professional ethics for anyone claiming to work in this arena. Who’s the troll based on this?
This is further evidence of the character of this man and the types of methods he uses. Compound that with the fact there is strong evidence that he is claiming credentials from UCLA as a PhD in Psychology that UCLA does not confirm, and there’s good reason to treat him with extreme skepticism and not accept anything he claims without independent confirmation from a reliable source. Jim Wright works closely with Keith W Smith and relies upon him and his claimed credentials to attack multiple people online. Jim Wright has also had multiple posts removed from Facebook for similar violations under the categories of Harassment and Hate Speech.
Here’s the report from Facebook showing this most recent violation from “Healing Communities.”
“Healing Communities” Facebook Violation
There is much more to say about what has happened in this arena and the collaboration between Keith W Smith and Jim Wright to defame and attack multiple people while at the same time attempting to promote themselves as “Organic Church” experts. More will be forthcoming in the days ahead.
A few people have contacted me asking for the emails from the UCLA’s Registrar’s Office with regard to the claim of an earned 2002 UCLA PhD in Psychology by Keith W Smith and the promotion of these credentials by James C Wright in his continued efforts to defame multiple people in the Organic Church community at large.
Here they are as well as some additional things to consider following. Continue reading
