February 11, 2010:
The following is a transcript of the phone call Sinclair made to the United States Secret Service yesterday. (See live call link below.)
H/T to LMK for transcribing this:
SS: Who’s this?
L: Yes, please be advised that this call is being recorded. Whom am I speaking with?
SS: Uh, who’s it being recorded by, Ma’am?
L: It is being recorded by the person calling you because I don’t appreciate calling the US Secret Service and having one of your slam a phone down when I ask a simple question.
SS: What was your question?
L: The question was, who in your office; who is the agent in charge of the Washington Secret Service office? How do I get in touch with them? That’s a simple question.
SS: Ok, well Ma’am, you wouldn’t just call here and get a direct line to the agent in charge of the Washington field office unit. Ok, you realize that, right?
L: Ok, I do and I tried to explain to the gentleman that just slammed the phone down that I was paid a visit by last week by 2 from your Jacksonville office. Now they made it clear that they were sent here by the Washington office. Now, I got 2 sisters that were contacted by your today, one in South Carolina and the other one in Colorado. This is going to stop. Now it was explained…
SS: Hold on, hold on.
SS: Now let’s stop there.
L: No, I said it is going to stop. You
SS. No, no let’s just stop the story real quick.
SS: Number 1, what were your sisters contacted for?
L: Because apparently you guys don’t like my website.
L: So you come to my house, then you go to my mother’s house and now you are going to my family members’ house. Agent Keller assured me that this was over, that you guys would not be harassing my family and yet you’re doing just that.
SS: Ok, again though, the problem is, I think you are messing up a couple of things here. Number 1, the came out of Jacksonville?
L: They were told, they were sent by the Washington office.
SS: Right, right, ok,

Here is a transcript of the phone call Sinclair taped when the Secret Service agent called him.
Ruh Roh, over at The Regulator was kind enough to translate the call based on Sinclair’s publicized recording:
Hey all, I am trying to transcribe the call, but it’s very slow going because they are talking over one another through most of it as they would both like to control the call. I’ll keep updating this, but here is what I have so far:
Larry begins recording the call while it is already in progress, so it’s difficult to catch what Special Agent Keller is saying at the start of the recording.
It begins with SAK already mid-sentence:
SAK: …kind of raised a little bit of concern, and, are, are you home now?
LS: Uh, well yeah, because you just called me, but like I said, if you-
SAK: (unintelligible) I didn’t know if this was a cell phone number or a home number
LS: But if, I, well, again you are WHO?
SAK: My name is Jim Keller, and I work for the Department of Homeland Security.
LS: OK. And, I mean, I don’t MIND you speaking to me, but calling me asking me if I’m at home at 6 o’clock? I mean nothin’ personal but couldn’t you guys at least call during daylight hours so I can see you? (Larry nervously chuckles)
SAK: (Unintelligible; sounds like Larry is moving around and that makes it tough to hear SAK) plan was just to call you initially, let you know who I am, and that we were interested in talking to you. I’m actually, uh, very close to your house.
LS: Muh, I kinda figured you would be if you were calling!( More nervous chuckling)
SAK: Right. So, and I was just gonna get a feel of where we stood and if you were even in fact home
LS, interrrupting: No, I, I, I AM home, and like I said, uuuh, I understand that, uh, people might not like some questions-
SAK: Oh, yeah, I know
SAK: But, you’ve really, I understand completely what you’re sayin’
LS: I have-
SAK: We just wanted to make sure we got an understanding, and that everything’s OK with ya.
LS: I mean, I have not threatened anyone-
SAK: No, no
LS: I have asked someone, yuh, I mean, well, it’s not that what I asked is a secret because I posted everything publicly
LS: But yeah
SAK: Um, did, are you (unintelligible)
SAK: Yeah, you have, exactly. You’ve posted, put your everything, your feelings out on, and are you over at 9 Spring Drive?
LS: Uhh, yes? But do you mind if I at least go and turn my porchlight on before you come runnin’ up on my house?
SAK: I, I would never (beep) run up there, that’s why I called to talk to ya and find out what’s goin’ on and then go from there.
LS: OK, I mean, like I said, um, I have no problem talking with you , uh, I think you can see that by the fact that I’m still talking to you on the phone.
LS: Um, But uh, in fact I’m sitting in front of my computer adjusting the website now because there were some things that were just off balance.
LS: Um, but uhh, like I said, I’ve done nothing illegal-
LS: I have, I have nothing to hide-
SAK: No, nobody said anything illegal, we just wanna get a, you know, just to make sure everything’s OK with ya. (uintelligible) anything we can do for ya.
LS: Well, I mean everything’s fine for me, I ‘ll be honest with ya Mr. Keller-
LS: If, you
SAK: That’s all we’re lookin’ for.
SAK: That’s all we’re lookin’ for.
LS: Yeah I mean if, if, what I would like, is I would like the individuals at the White House, uh, that have made statements prior to entering that place to expand on them or at least
LS: or at least state why they ever made them. And I-
LS: And I think-
SAK: Lemme, lemme–Let’s sit down and talk, let me write down what your concerns are, uh, so I can get an idea and we’ll go from there and see what we can do. And I can uh-
LS: Well let me ask you this. Do I need to call my lawyer? Do you plan on taking-
SAK: No, no, heck no.
LS: Do you plan on takin’ me out of my house tonight?!
SAK: No, no, no. I,-
LS: I mean-
SAK: -not at all. I plan on goin’ (out? home? ) tonight and
LS: Laughs nervously
SAK: I, you are gonna, there’s no reason to take you out of your house to-relax.
LS: Laughs nervously again. Well I-
LS: I’m just asking because, I mean, I will be honest with you. There is a pellet gun in my home, OK?
SAK: Alright, don’t worry about that.
SAK It’s nothing.
LS: Chuckling now
(they’re talking over each other and I can’t sort it out)
SAK: Don’t-just don’t pick it up
LS: No no no! In fact, I’m not even gonna go nowhere near it, I’ll let you if you wanna see it, but yeah,
LS: -that’s why.
SAK: Fair enough.
LS: Alright sir,
SAK: Alright, thanks, and put your porchlight on and we’ll be up in a minute or so.
LS: Thank you sir.
SAK: Thank you. Bye
Here is an analysis from Ruh Roh and WTPL which I wanted to share, regarding Sinclair’s bullying people on the internet as opposed to his caving when he is confronted on a face to face basis:
January 28, 2010 at 1:02 pm
How about it? I transcribed it for future reference and for folks who are at work and can’t listen just now. But everyone should listen to the recording if they can. He is seriously freaked out and worried.
That recording just proves what we’ve known for a long time. He’s a big old bully when he’s behind a computer/fax machine or has planned a bullying phone call. And he’s certainly a bully when shouting into someone’s voicemail. But he is scared shitless of any sort of confrontation with law enforcement. He’s nothing but a coward and a bully. Fear is his predominant, driving emotion. I wouldn’t be surprised if he peed himself during that call.
Note that whenever he actually has to talk to someone ‘face to face’, which he says he craves, he folds like a house of cards EVERY SINGLE TIME!
That agent seemed like a very decent guy who was pretty cool in the circumstance. I thought he was great at trying to tamp things down before they got out of hand. Someday, when he’s inevitably standing before a judge, I hope the judge is reminded of what this creep just put that USSS agent through in the last 24 hrs when assessing sentencing.
First of all, thanks for the transcript. I didn’t check every word but the sense I got reading it before I listened seemed accurate enough. You’re right. The audio is well worth listening too because he is definitely uneasy.
The part where La-Rye asks if he can turn on the porch light because he’s wondering if they’re going to rush up to the house (something to that effect) – he obviously was having some uneasy thoughts about what might be happening and they weren’t happy thoughts handled with resolve and a brave, cool demeanor.
It reminded me of the exchange where he lost his cool on Youtube:
LarrySinclair0926 “FUCK YOU PUK, you want part of me I am at the HILTON Checkers Hotel. Bring your bad ass on over and get carried away in a fucking body bag bitch.”
“… I will meet you tonight anywhere in california you ant nme to. I am fucking sick of of the shit you and others have sent my way and I am ready to fight you face to fucking face. If you do not have the balls, then be the bitch you are and get the fuck off my youtube page.”
“I am mad as hell, I am sick of you little fucking internet warriors that talk shit and I am telling each and everyone of you warriors stand up to me face to face toe to toe and get beat down like the little gutless bitches you are. You have a problem with that the FUCK YOU PUNKS.”
“I am at XXX Wilshire Blvd Rm XXX, Los Angels, CA. 213-XXX-0000 Until you have the balls and guts to say this shit to my face go fuck your mama punk ass bitch.”
Well bub, you got your face to face and you weren’t such a tough guy when confonted with it, were you?
To be honest, I wouldn’t be either in that circumstance but I haven’t called anyone out on it beyond the above hyporcrisy. And probably most importantly, the USSS agent didn’t sound like he was exactly looking forward to a confrontation either which is why they called first. That’s important because it sends a message to Sinclair that he obviusly got to some extent with his nervous reaction and hopefully, it will provide some reassurance to some nervous folks around here that the USSS are taking this wacko seriously as the potentially dangerous wackjob he is.
