Bigfoot News September 30, 2013

Happy birthday to me. Thank you very much!
Justin Smeja stirs furor over pro-kill post on Facebook. On a Bigfoot Facebook group, Suzy Matiash asked Justin Smeja what his position was on the pro-kill/no-kill debate in the community. Justin left a lengthy answer that said he was still pro-kill. He was then promptly tossed from the group by Suzy because the group has a strict no-kill policy for posters.
Cindy Bowers did a great job of writing this up on the Crypto Crew blog.
Recently Justin Smeja was asked a tough question by Suzy Matiash, administrator of the Facebook group Bigfoot Community.
The question was:

Mr. Smeja, I mean this question with no malice toward you. But this is a no kill group. And given the chance, would you kill another Sas? Or have you changed your views and would not do it again.

Justin answered:

I believe Bigfoots are some sort of people – a wild man or archaic human if you will. They are not just some other animal to be hunted like deer – its immoral. They are intelligent.
For the greater good of the species whether it be in life or death or even extinction, I will pursue killing one. I do not love the species or the individuals. I feel it’s wrong to take a Sasquatch’s life, but who among us does everything right? You worry about the person you see in the mirror, and I’ll take care of me.
I will try to kill another Sasquatch to prove their existence.
The truth is most in the Bigfoot community are liars, especially when it comes to the subject. They preach this no kill gospel and pretend to be disgusted by the thought of killing one publicly, but behind closed doors I’m often (very often) approached by these same individuals – many of whom are highly respected pillars in the community – with a new strategy, location or idea on how to kill one. They often even offer to help fund an expedition to bring back a dead one.
Derek Randles was never like that. He always hated the idea of killing one. I respect him for that. He’s a better man than I am.
I’m not here to play politics, to be politically correct or to save face. I’m not looking for a place in the Bigfoot community. When I research, I often have a rifle, and if I see one, I will most likely shoot it. However, I also often research with no rifle at all. Make what you will out of that. My only goal is proof to validate my story.
This is a stupid argument – to kill or not to kill – if you’re that worked up about it, you have too much time on your hands. DNA is no longer good enough. Especially in this field. Let’s just assume that I know more about DNA results findings and protocols then 98 percent of you. I’ve worked first hand with countless labs and doctors on this subject over the last 3 years. If a body’s drug in by a researcher tomorrow, the blood of that individual is partly on Melba’s hands. It is because of her that we need a body. We need a body, not a sequence.
The truth is I waver back and forth and some days I’m 100% no kill. I’ve lost more sleep on the subject because of my actions then any of you. But I’ve made peace with my actions other than the occasional nightmare.

Rick Dyer will get $27 million on January 1, 2015. Late the other night on his show, when hardly a soul was listening, Rick revealed that his investor has not given him any money at all yet (hence the continuous grubbing and hucksterism), but that Rick will receive $27 million on January 1, 2015 if he delivers the body to the new owner (probably the casino owner) “completely intact.” That means he has to keep the body intact for all of 2014, during which the first half of the year will be spent touring with the Bigfoot body and the second half of the year will not. But Rick will retain possession of the body during the non-outing portion of the year.
This sets up a very interesting scenario. Suppose someone – haters, skeptics, rivals or anti-kill activists – damaged the body by say removing the head and whisked the head off somewhere. Then Rick Dyer would not receive his $27 million. In fact, he would not receive one thin dime.
New owner may be Steve Wynn. He’s one oily, slimy Vegas casino owner. He recently hosted a morbid exhibit on the Titanic. A source who went to that exhibit said it was very disturbing. He’s just the fellow to host a morbid and tacky Bigfoot body display.
Criticism of Rick’s 19th Century “dead body on tour” sleazefest. This sort of thing was popular maybe 200 years ago. One wonders how many creatures have been revealed to science by traveling side shows, but actually there have been a number of them, mostly around 200 years ago. The problem is that what was acceptable in the 1800’s is now incredibly tacky to say the least.
Personally, I am not too happy that this dead body is going to be trucked around by a bunch of ghoulish profiteering capitalist hucksters. It is slimy, disreputable and morbid. Suppose I died tomorrow, and some people bought my corpse from someone else, embalmed it, and then trucked it around the country as a freak side show attraction. This is more or less the same thing.
Here are some of the comments that I received complaining about how the body is going to anything for a buck capitalists instead of the government, a museum or a university where it belongs.

If there was a Bigfoot body it should be going to a museum of natural history not some freak show tour with RD and then some tacky casino!! I don’t have a problem with a Bigfoot tour, but not in flea markets and gun shows.
If this thing is a relict hominid, it should be displayed with dignity, a la’ the Treasures of Egypt tour or the tours of great artists, something like that. But as something akin to a carnival sideshow…terrible.
Frankly, I am mostly a no-kill mindset. But, if one is killed, then science needs to be involved, to find out just exactly BF stands within our human family, and then try not to hurt them any more than have been hurt.
If there is a casino owner involved, he could very well be Steve Wynn. He hosted the Titanic exhibit at the Bellagio. I do have to say, I saw that exhibit and it gave me the creeps.

The “Christopher Noel lied” accusation. Via Randy Filipovic, who seems to be getting more and more shrill lately to the point where it looks like he is going off the deep end:

Chris Noel’s opinion means squat. He destroyed any credibility he had when he asked Steve Kulls to lie.

Noel responds:

When Kulls maliciously outed the identity of my friend Jack Barnes, I wrote him and told him to post a retraction saying he’d been mistaken, to try to correct his immoral act. Then Kulls promptly posted our PM conversation with the headline Christopher Noel Wants Me to Lie!!!!! Delightful fellow.

I agree with Noel. I am tired of all of these malicious outings. People are entitled to a bit of privacy. Noel did the right thing to ask Steve to retract his story and say he was mistaken in order to protect Jack’s identity.
Why so many awful people in Bigfootery? A commenter, new to the game, asked me in the comments why there were so many horrible people in Bigfootery. Here is my response:
Although I do not think the Dyer story is a hoax, Dyer is himself a hoaxer; not only that, but he is a serial hoaxer! He was hoaxing in a major way as recently as May 2012 and he has hoaxed even in the course of this story (Bigfoot baby hoax). In addition, he has lied shamelessly all through this nevertheless true story, and even before the story, his track record shows that he is a pathological liar.
The problem is not Rick Dyer. The problem is the fringe nature of the subject. The fringe nature of Bigfootery means that a very large number of those attracted to it will be jerks, idiots, scumbags, nutcases of all types and varieties, criminals, thieves, liars, con-men, narcissists and sociopaths.
Hopefully once we get this thing proven a lot of the sane and decent humans will come rushing in as it will be as mainstream a subject as studying gorillas, chimps or even wolverines or mountain lions. The general public will flood in which there are plenty of good folks mixed in with the bad, and in particular the science crowd will move in, most of whom are cautious, decent, fair-minded, emotionally controlled folks.
There are so many out and out horrible people in this field that I would not advise anyone to get into it. It is actually a somewhat dangerous hobby. Why are Bigfooters so horrible? I think it is because many of them are simply fanatics. Fanatics tend to be horrific human beings. Or at least their behavior is horrific. Their monstrous behavior stems from their fanaticism.
Morgan Matthews’ clever wording. Matthews has been virtually speaking in riddles about his movie Shooting Bigfoot for some time now. But a commenter notes something very interesting:

Its interesting as there is nowhere in that interview with MM where he denies there is a real Bigfoot in his film. He apologizes for the incorrect rumors that he is in possession of a Bigfoot body or that he personally moved the body and that the film contained footage of a dead Bigfoot. He makes a particular point of not having footage of a dead Bigfoot in his film.

Morgan Matthews makes the following correct statements which nevertheless have interesting possible explanations in back of the weasel words. Morgan’s statements in normal text, explanations in italics following.

  1. I am not in possession of any Bigfoot body. But maybe someone else is!
  2. I did not personally move any Bigfoot body. But maybe other folks did!
  3. The film does not contain footage of a dead Bigfoot. But maybe it contains footage of a live one!

What sort of a person is Hank Williams III? I believe that Hank Williams III is the owner of Rick Dyer’s dead Bigfoot, Hank. But what sort of a person is HW3? This music video of his may give us some clues:
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkzSyvCl9ic&feature=youtu.be]
That video is called Three Shades of Black. It is full of all sorts of dark, evil and even Satanic imagery. Obviously this fellow is deep into the bad boy game and he is trying to give off the impression that he is “badass” or even “evil.”
A commenter wonders what sort of person would hire another person to kill a fellow hominid and then ghoulishly retain the body. First a commenter posted the video above and asked, “Is this guy evil or what?” To which the other commenter responded:

Eh? Well, which is it? Either it’s “This guy is evil enough to pull the strings of Rick Dyer (to intentionally ridicule the Bigfoot community with a vast hoax)” or “This guy is evil enough to pay for a Bigfoot hit-man and demand a Bigfoot body?”

I would say the latter, no?
Rick Dyer steps down as President of Team Tracker. More of Rick’s wild, impulsive and unpredictable behavior. In this case, he is stepping down as president of his group, apparently to spend his time getting ready for his roadshow. In his place, Frank Cali will step in as President. I think Frank will be a lot easier to get along with. Frank has said that he will not tolerate TT members badmouthing either me or Christopher Noel on his show. Frank will take over the running of some of the shows. The shows should be a lot more sober and serious with Frank at the helm.

Save the White Race!

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExQgBgm9Z-I]
The problem with the White nationalists and White supremacists screaming about White genocide and saving the White race from extinction is that to be completely honest, there really is nothing much left to save anymore.
Back in the hippie era, we thought we were creating a whole new era of mind expansion and liberation. Instead we got mind reduction, idiocracy and a race to the bottom via the depravity of ghetto and anticivilizational culture. We were wrong to promote drugs and unlimited license. Woodstock was one thing, but from the soil of Woodstock inevitably grows something like this.
What White race? There’s nothing left. Look at the video.
White people RIP!

Sparks "Angst in My Pants"

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6FRV5IhuEU]
Sparks from 1981! I saw them at the Whisky a Go Go right around this time, in 1981 or 1982. Ron and Russel Mael are both Jewish. They were born in Pacific Palisades, so this is a real LA band.
From the very start, they were very controversial and polarizing. You either loved them or hated them. A critic for the LA Times raved about them, and that, among other things, made him very unpopular. I knew people who absolutely hated them along with David Bowie, the New York Dolls, Lou Reed, Kiss, T. Rex and Mott the Hoople. All of those more or less glam bands were considered to be decadent, depraved or gay back in those days.
A very weird version of Angst in My Pants from the Plagiarism album of 1997 in which they recorded odd versions of their own songs, often in conjunction with other bands.
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uk5iJyABIaI]
Ron Mael has always had a little Charlie Chaplin or Hitler mustache, however you would like to see it. The lead singer Russell Mael sings in a very high falsetto voice. This band has always been weird as Hell. Considering they are Jewish and some of the early band members were Jews, I doubt if he is imitating Hitler.
Almost nothing is known about either Russell or Ron Mael, as they are notoriously reclusive and refuse to give interviews. A recent book about the band admitted that little is known about the brothers. One thing is for sure: neither one is gay. The brothers have always been said to have been dedicated artists who spend most of their time in the studio.
This is often thought to be a UK band. They are from LA, and were raised on the LA club scene of the late 1960’s centering around the Whisky a Go Go with the Doors, Love, etc. They relocated to London for four years from 1972 to 1976, but then they moved back to LA. However, they do perform a lot in London.
Unfortunately, this band never got very popular. They are still releasing albums 40 years on. Absolutely incredible. This is one of the great highbrow rock and roll bands, perfect for this site.
Great songs and photos down through the years.
Lyrics for Angst in My Pants about a situation familiar to many males:
I hope it doesn’t show
It’ll go away
It’s just a passing phase
It’ll go away
You can dress nautical
Learn to tie knots
Take lots of Dramamine
Out on your yacht
But when you’re all alone
And nothing bites
You’ll wish you’d stayed at home
With someone nice
But when you think you’ve made it disappear
It comes again – “Hello, I’m here!”
And you’ve got angst in your pants
You can be smart as hell, know how to add
Know how to figure things on yellow pads,
Answer so no one knows what you just said
But when you’re all alone, you and your head
What’s the computer say? It’s mumbling now
It says “Hey, Joe”, it’s spelled it out
And you’ve got angst in your pants
You’ve got angst in your pants!
But when you think you’ve made it disappear
You’re sure you’ve made it disappear
And you’ve still got angst in your pants
I hope it doesn’t show, it’ll go away
It’s just a passing phase, it’ll go away
I hope it doesn’t show, it’ll go away
Give it a hundred years, it won’t go away!
And I’ve got angst in my pants!
I’ve got angst in my pants!
I’ve got angst in my pants!
I’ve got angst in my pants!
I’ve got angst in my pants!
I’ve got angst in my pants!
I’ve got angst in my pants!

Sparks in London in 1972. Glam rock all the way. Wow!
Sparks in London in 1972. Glam rock all the way. Wow!

Bigfoot News September 28, 2013 Part 2

Derek Randles post on Facebook detailing a recent correspondence with Dr. Melba Ketchum. Derek recently made this post about his ongoing feud with Ketchum:

I’ve made this request with your personal assistant, and I’ve also asked you directly, but still no response. Ms Ketchum, I want what’s left of my sample back, and quite frankly I’m getting tired of waiting. The sample I’m referring to is sample 26. Just so there’s no confusion, it’s the sample Justin Smeja signed over to me, the sample that I gave you permission to test. I am the owner of the sample, and I have the documentation stating so. You have told me repeatedly that there is some sample left. You have also told me you would send it to Wally for me.

The least you could do considering Wally funded the majority of your study. The reason I want it back is simple. I want it retested. Posting this publicly is not my style, but in light of the fact I’m being ignored about this, and the BS seems to be getting thicker, I decided to post this publicly. I would very much appreciate a response from your “camp”.

This is a long and ongoing story. Ketchum was supposed to give the sample back to Derek and Wally Hersom, but she never has. Attempts at replication of the sample have repeatedly tested it out as “Black bear” instead of a Bigfoot. That does not look good for her study and Bart Cutino, Justin Smeja and others are calling her a fraudster. If she really did fake the findings in her study, she is guilty of scientific fraud, a devastating charge.

Dr. Bryan Sykes study to publish in mid-October. This is very exciting news. A new and great article by Scott Carpenter implies that Sykes has known about the existence of Bigfoots or Yetis since 2001, but has sat on the data because he just did not have enough to publish yet. After Ketchum published, the green light was given to Sykes, and he was finally able to do the study he had been wanting to do for a long time now. Scott feels that Sykes will validate Ketchum’s much-maligned study, and I believe that that is indeed possible.

New leaked material shows that Ketchum did indeed undergo peer review at the JAMEZ (Journal of Advanced Zoological Exploration in Zoology). Whether she passed that review or not is another matter. The Ketchum haters (which now encompasses most of the community) have been saying for a long time that there was no peer review at JAMEZ, and that it in fact did not even exist and was created. In fact, it did exist and it was not created by Ketchum.

The Ketchum haters are as bad as the Dyer haters and they have been wrong about so many things. Kudos to Scott Carpenter for a job well done in uncovering these documents. Obviously Ketchum is not my favorite person in the world, and the truth is we are not even on speaking terms. Nevertheless, I think it is almost criminal what has been done to this woman.

Great new video out by Timbergiantbigfoot in Ontario, Canada. I have been following this fellow for a long time, and he is pretty interesting. He has never been known to hoax before, and he has made scores or possibly hundreds of videos. He researches in some sort of a provincial park in Ontario. I did see one of his video where an obvious Bigfoot was standing still next to a tree. Most of the others are just the guy pointing to all sorts of blobs and claiming they are Bigfoots.

In this video, he actually videotapes the top of the head of some sort of a hairy creature. He also hears it clacking rocks and apparently using rocks to break up nuts. You cannot see the creature very well, but what you can see looks more like a gorilla than anything else! At one point, the creature stands up and walks away. The narrator then goes to where the creature was and finds rocks, nuts and apples on the ground. Jim said that the creature was about 7 feet tall and seemed to weigh 500 pounds.

This video is being ripped to a thousand pieces on the usual ultra-skeptic sites who never believe that any Bigfoot evidence is real. However, Jim has never hoaxed before. If this is a hoax, then he has worked for years with no hoaxing to stop suddenly and start hoaxing. That is a pretty odd thing to do.

MK Davis analyzes the Tent Video. Excellent breakdown shows the Tent Video with Hank eating ribs off a tree the morning before he was shot. What is amazing is that MK shows the Bigfoot blinking with both eyes. Not only that, but the blink causes all of the proper facial muscles above and below the eye to move exactly the way that they would if you were blinking. There is no mask available that would allow a proper blink to be seen with a scrunching up of the face. However, if the Tent Video creature was just wearing makeup and not a a mask, then this blinking would be possible.

Christopher Noel video protesting Dyer’s Sasquatch tour. Christopher Noel intends to boycott and protest Dyer’s show with a group of protestors everywhere Rick goes with his Bigfoot. At first this protest made no sense to me at all, but recently Noel sent me a statement about why his group would be protesting the tour:

In my view, the North American tour of the Sasquatch trophy corpse is grotesque. There would, however, be less reason to oppose it if Dyer had not repeatedly proclaimed his strong desire to slaughter further specimens and to lead the charge for others to take to the forests and bag their own trophies. His mantra is “Let’s make them extinct.”

The North American tour graphically represents all of this, and the infinite ego it takes for anyone to claim to OWN the body of our next of kin. Therefore, it is the perfect vehicle for raising awareness and organizing our efforts to pass laws that will prevent Dyer from repeating his deed and prevent the hundreds of Dyer wannabees from fanning out with night-vision rifles throughout the continent to seize their share of fame and fortune.

This is an excellent statement, and I now feel that Noel’s protests make complete sense and are indeed for a good cause.

Criticism of my interview with Rick Dyer. I have been criticized for doing a softball interview with Rick, but those are the only types of interviews I do. Nevertheless, the questions that I asked Rick were some of the toughest and most hardball questions he has ever been asked. People do not realize that because they do not have the behind the scenes knowledge to realize how jarring those questions really were.

Devastating charges relating to Rick Dyer’s arrest in Florida for spousal abuse. From the comments section, a Dyer skeptic reports:

His name is Ricky Traylor Chuck Dyer. Google his name and “scammer” and you will get dozens of hits. If you have an account with any reputable background checker, you can enter that name and get the police report from Florida in which Ricky Dyer beat on his pregnant wife. The arresting officer’s report states that Rick told them “I didn’t hit her that hard.” The same report also lists severe facial bruising on Lily Dyer, with knuckle imprints.

Wow, Rick. Time for some anger management classes maybe? Rick has always denied that he ever hit his wife and says the arrest was a false arrest, but according to this poster, that is not the case.

Criticism of Rick Dyer from the comments section. In the text below, “POS” refers to Rick Dyer. Many of my commenters now simply refer to Rick as “POS” instead of either of his name
s.

For the record and to anyone reading this: I DESPISE POS, I truly believe he’s a master manipulator, a self serving narcissistic sociopath who’s only goal(s) in life is making money by taking advantage of others who are more weak minded.

We have to face facts and realize that this debate isn’t going away anytime soon, and it will always be debated until it reaches it’s final conclusion. POS is right, he’s been “the most talked about person in the Bigfoot community for the last year”. The ‘haters’ have made it possible, and momentum hasn’t died out yet.

He’s a slime-ball, a known hoaxer, a petty criminal, a parasite of the worst kind. So many facts we know about him as a person that are all correct. He has no conscience and no allegiances to anyone really. He uses and abuses everyone he comes in contact with, and few understand what he’s all about. He’s not stupid or a dumb redneck, he’s actually very smart and conniving. He’s a salesman foremost and that is the obvious red flag that many overlook.

Nice comments, and the views above certainly sum up the feelings of a very large number of folks about what Rick Dyer is all about. On the other hand, I think Rick likes it this way. Rick is all about being a “bad boy” after all, like his hero HW3. Bad boys, well, they do bad things, they do bad stuff. They act bad. A lot of people hate them for all the bad stuff they do. So the views expressed above actually line up pretty well with the image that Rick himself wishes to put across about himself.

Criticism of Rick’s shameless profiteering. From the comments section, a Dyer skeptic writes:

Consider people like Timbergiant Bigfoot and Sasquatch Ontario, from northern Ontario, Canada. These two guys have gotten a plethora of flack, abuse and criticism over their recent video evidence. Yet neither of them have monetized their videos or are looking to cash in on their findings at the expense of others. The only person in the fringes of the Bigfoot community right now, trying to make oodles of money and admittedly, is POS (RD). Yeah, yeah, but they haven’t shot and killed a Bigfoot….pfffff.

I truly don’t know what to think about SO or TGB and their recent discoveries, and I’m not fully convinced that they are entirely legit, but and again, they aren’t attempting to take advantage of the viewers they have attracted. They haven’t turned their channels and findings into a circus side show like POS…

Legitimate researchers aren’t looking for fame, fortune, notoriety, and they don’t mention their names in 3rd person over and over again in their videos!

I must admit that Rick’s constant profiteering and grubbing for every nickel really puts me off, but then I have never really liked people who are totally into money above all else. I used to have some people like that in my life, but I got tired of them, and at this point, I have run most of them out of my life and I don’t imagine they are coming back anytime soon. On the other hand, wildly capitalist societies like the USA will always generate whole armies of hucksters. Marx noted this as early as 1848.

Pinkfoot Cindy Schafer left Team Tracker a while ago and here is why:

Lies, pranks, and hating is why I left. I could no longer support a team that revolves around negative and criminal type behavior.

Wow, that is a pretty devastating critique.

Commenter wraps up many mysterious details in this story with a tight theory. From my comments an excellent grand theory.

I think as soon as Hank was shot, then both Rick and MM were silenced about it. Footage of an alive Hank was ok to show as the investors only owned the body and everything to prove the body (film and photos). So I reckon what happened was that Rick released the camper video (because pre-kill footage was his ownership), then the Minnow leak squealed to Robert Lindsay who promptly blogged the story, so word got out. So then I reckon the investors said “OK, Rick you can talk now but no showing of photos/film of dead Hank still”.

And whereas Rick has broken his silence, MM has kept to the book, and until a body is revealed or just before a body is revealed, then I think MM will remain silent and there is nothing that anyone can do to get that info from him? I still think that if that DVD does have Rick’s own footage of a dead hank, then it belongs to the investors and Rick is actually promoting it for them?

This very nice theory wraps up so many things. This is why Rick was able to show the Tent Video but has not been able to show any other videos or photos of Hank – because he doesn’t own Hank and the investor has hence forbidden any representations of him. It also explains why Morgan Matthews has not been able to talk much about his movie. Morgan was only allowed to show part of the footage of the live Bigfoot, but he could not show any footage after the Bigfoot died, as that is the investor’s property. Morgan and Rick were also forbidden from saying that a Bigfoot was shot.

Rick claims that replicas of Hank have already been made. According to Pinkfoot, Rick said that one or more replicas of Hank have already been made. Pink then asked him a variety of questions that related to taxidermy and replication. According to Rick’s stunted answers to those questions, it would not appear that Rick has yet made any replicas of Hank.

Purpose of Rick Dyer discussion on this site. I do want an open forum here for Dyer believer and nonbelievers and really everyone else I suppose. Thing is, my Dyer posts are now banned from almost 100% of Bigfoot Facebook groups. There are few if any BF sites reporting on Dyer. All the groups and all the sites understandably hate the guy’s guts from here to Kingdom Come and they are sick and tired of hearing about him.

However, this is the most important story in Bigfootery now. Even if it is a hoax, I think it is the greatest and most complex Bigfoot hoax of all time.

My purpose is to provide a forum for Dyer skeptics and even haters (I assume they no longer have a forum either since all debate about him pro or con is generally banned) to come here and say their piece. The skeptics/haters have made many very interesting arguments, and they present a strong case for their side. The skeptics are great for Rick because they are holding his feet to the fire by making strong demands of him to prove his case, and this drives him to produce more and more evidence. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, and you are requiring just that of him.

This is also a forum for Dyer believers. They can go at it with the skeptics/haters all they wish. This really is the only forum on the Net where both sides of the Dyer debate can go at each other with glee.

Just keep me out of it and you will not get banned, real easy.

Also some formerly banned skeptic/haters have been reinstated on the site.

Science is a search for the truth and that is what this forum is all about ultimately.

Bigfoot News September 28, 2013

First description of the damage done to Hank’s face by Rick Dyer’s bullet!

It was blasted in the back of the head, having an awful exit wound out its lower jaw/mouth. The jaw was partially disconnected from the skull, showing raw bone and flesh. The body was frozen, or semi-frozen, with a clear bag over its head.

This is directly from someone who has seen the body via Christopher Noel. Noel also obtained descriptions of the bullet damage from two others who had seen the body, and all three descriptions lined up very well. Now skeptics have to argue that all three of these people got together and agreed on a fake description to make up and managed to remember it well enough to retell it without significant discrepancies.
Musky was forbidden from discussing the bullet damage during his 2-hour interview with Facebook Find Bigfoot for some odd reason, but I am not publishing this description for the first time. This is pretty much what you might expect from a round of the type that Rick fired that night.
Timeline of how the Rick Dyer Bigfoot reveal is supposed to go:
The reveal will take place on December 15 in San Antonio, Texas. A press conference will be held with scientists affirming its authenticity. The Bigfoot will then go to the new owner (the casino owner) to do some publicity with it. Then the body goes back to Rick for a year while he takes it on tour around the US similar to the Minnesota Iceman tour. Then the body goes back to the casino owner for whatever purpose.
Rick’s tour with the Bigfoot. Rick says he will spend the first half of 2014 on tour around the US with the Bigfoot, though he will retain possession of the body for the whole year. This would be similar to the Minnesota Iceman (which was actually a real Bigfoot in my opinion) that toured the US in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Rick will charge $10 for adults and $5 for children.
He recently announced all of the cities he will be touring on the first leg of the tour. He will no doubt need permits to take his show to those cities. Some of my commenters called the permits offices of some of the cities Rick listed and they knew nothing about Rick’s tour, so obviously Rick has not yet formalized this tour with the authorities yet, and it best to say that he plans to go to these cities rather than that he will go to these cities. Two cities in California that were mentioned were Eureka and California. Calls to the Eureka government office in charge of such things confirmed no such appearance by Rick.
Rick has stated that he hopes to make $100,000/month exhibiting this body. After being confronted with these facts, Rick then said that he will be utilizing gun shows and flea markets for his tour. That way he probably will not need a permit. Rick also stated recently that he will have the Bigfoot’s organs in jars and that no photos of the Bigfoot will be allowed. The organs in jars bit is pretty morbid and sickening if you ask me.
Derek Randles to view the body. Rick stated recently that Derek Randles will see the body on the first week of December. Rick and Derek have generally been on cordial terms for whatever reason.
Rick back to grubbing for money again. Rick is now hitting his supporters up for more and more donations because he says he needs the money since his team will be picking up the body in late November – early December. They need to have the trailer ready and to have other expensive necessities ready to go before they can pick up the body.
Dyer’s video, After the Shot. The video has now sold 65 copies according to Rick. Rick has also said that he will ship the video by December 10 even if he does not sell the requisite 100 copies. That is great news. Assuming that this video really does show a real dead Bigfoot and it will only be issued in a 100 copy limited run, I would assume that it is going to become a collectors’ item and the $129 price, which frankly seems like a complete ripoff, would actually be worth it.
Why not sell the video for cheaper? Supposing Rick sold After the Shot for $20 instead, the normal price for a DVD? If there really is a dead Bigfoot in that video, I would guess that he might be able to sell ~4 million copies @ $20 a shot. You do the math. However, Rick was apparently only given permission to sell 100 copies.
Rick’s copy protection threats seem dubious. Team Tracker has said that each video will have a certain marker on it that indicates who the person is who bought it. If anyone uploads any portion of the video, they will be able to look at these markers and tell who it was that uploaded it. Rick then said he would sue them for everything they have. Problem is that this technology probably does not even exist.
I would assume that Hollywood would kill to get their hands on this technology, as it would be a great way for them to go after video-copying thieves who upload videos to the Net. Since Hollywood itself hasn’t even done this yet with all of their resources, it seems dubious that Rick Dyer thought up something ingenious that even all the brains behind Hollywood have not been able to invent. Color me skeptical.
Rick Dyer’s lawsuit threats. Rick says he will sue the pants off anyone who uploads the movie. The problem is that the DMCA was meant to prevent a flood of copyright theft lawsuits. Hence, almost all copyright thefts are simply dealt with via a DMCA takedown order. The copyright owner issues the order and the person has to remove the material quickly otherwise there are consequences.
The state has also gotten involved and passed some terrible laws making it illegal to upload copyrighted material. Recently a man was prosecuted for uploading one of the Star Wars movies to the Net. Bottom line is that no one is suing anyone for copyright theft for uploading videos, so I doubt if Rick Dyer will be too. Even if he does, the judge might just toss the case on the grounds that Rick should have used the DMCA law instead. Judges are within their proper bounds to junk as nuisance suits copyright theft suits that are better covered by the DMCA so as to protect society from a flood of copyright protection suits.
Furthermore, a source has told me that Rick never sues anyone. He threatens to sue people all the time, but he never actually carries through on it because he doesn’t want to drive all the way into downtown Las Vegas to file the case. So it’s quite dubious that Rick would sue in these cases anyway. It is also my opinion and that of others that Rick does not even have an attorney. One of my sources and I have both received emails from this so-called attorney, and I thought they were fake emails concocted by Rick or someone on TT. I Googled the attorney’s name, and I do not think he even exists.
After the Shot price will go up to $199 on Tuesday, October 1. That has to be one of the dumbest things Rick has ever done. I believe he will sell few if any copies at that price.
New video coming out of Hank’s autopsy! Hank is the name of the Bigfoot that Rick Dyer shot a year ago. Rick now says that he has a video of the autopsy of the Bigfoot that he is selling for $199. That is ridiculously overpriced, but the price goes down to $99 (much more reasonable) if you also buy After the Shot.
Who paid for the reefer truck? Rick rented a refrigerated truck or reefer truck to transport the dead Bigfoot from San Antonio to Las Vegas. People have been asking for the receipts for that for some time, but Rick will not show them. Former TT member Pinkfoot now says that the reefer truck was originally put on the credit card of Minnow Films, and that during the trip the truck’s cooling system shut off because the rental charges were exceeding the credit card’s limit. Rick then had to scramble to put the charges on one of his own credit cards to keep the Bigfoot cooled for the rest of the trip.
After quite a bit of investigation working with a couple of my sources, I now believe that Rick has only ever had one investor and has never had the multiple investors he claimed he had. We believe that that single investor is none other than Hank Williams III, the grandson of the great Hank Williams, the famous country singer.
Rick’s mother reportedly wrote songs for HW3’s father, Hank Williams Jr. who was also a famous musician. So HW Jr. is then a good friend of Rick’s mother. It is apparently via his mother that Rick met Junior’s son, HW3. So this part of it is all making sense. Rick has never owned this Bigfoot body. Instead HW3 has owned it the whole time. However, he is scheduled to sell it to a Las Vegas casino at some point, possibly around December. As soon as that Bigfoot died, HW3 owned the body. This also explains so many other things, as I will elaborate below.
HW3 denies that he has anything to do with Rick or with any dead Bigfoot. Apparently people have put this question to him, but HW3 simply denied the whole story. But then if he really is the investor, it makes sense for him to talk that way.
Greatest Bigfoot hoax of all time? There are two competing theories about the Rick Dyer case – that it is all a gigantic hoax, or that it really happened. At the moment, there is no good, hard scientific evidence to prove either theory, hence the case remains a mystery, unsolved and inconclusive. But what if it is all a gigantic hoax? I would argue that for several reasons, this  would then be the greatest Bigfoot hoax ever done for several reasons:

  • The Tent Video and the Shooting Bigfoot stills are two of the greatest BF photos/videos of all time!
  • Morgan Matthews has still not said this is a hoax.
  • Several people claim to have seen the body and one provided an extremely detailed 2 hour interview of it.
  • There is a full length feature film that captures this hoax without even showing it is a hoax.
  • Director was badly beat up in filming.
  • Worst of all, the skeptics have been trying their dardest to prove this is a hoax for a very long time, and they have not been able to do so!

Now all that is if it is even a hoax, which is not proven at all.
Fake Musky Allen posting on Facebook. The haters made a fake Musky Allen posting a few weeks back. They made a fake Musky posting with software saying he lied about this entire thing. Musky then posted in the Facebook group I Shot Bigfoot that it was a fake and he still stand behind his story and Rick 100%. Two hater scumbags, Kenneth Rodriguez Tapia or Alu Kard, were behind this latest hater hoax. These hater hoaxes are really getting very tiresome.

The text of the fake statement the haters made up as part of another of their hoaxes.

Another hater hoax: Photos of Hank the Bigfoot’s body. The link to these photos was sent to me by a researcher under uncertain circumstances. The mail said to be from a disinterested researcher.
A photo of hoaxer Tim Hollis, the scumbag behind the latest fake photos.
A photo of Tim Hollis, whose account the hoaxed photos were on.

The researcher told me that he had been researching the case for some time and noticed that some of Dyer’s files had a certain letter and number combination on them. He Googled them and found what looked like a secret folder in which someone had forgotten turn on the privacy settings. The photos were labeled “Dead Hank” and the researcher thought this was one of Dyer’s secret sites and these photos were of Hank’s dead body. Instead, they are stills from a recent Bigfoot movie.
One of the stupid hoax photos of Hank recently faked by haters.
One of the hoax photos of Hank recently posted.

This is another of the stupid hoaxed dead Hank photos. It is from a recent Bigfoot movie.

Columbine Shooter Eric Harris' Journal Entries

Scary stuff!
Harris was apparently a full blown psychopath, and Dylan Klebold instead was just severely depressed. Klebold was more the follower type and Harris was the messianic type. Horrible crimes with accomplices typically have paradigms like this. One is the messianic leader and the other is the follower.
It is not often known, but depressives can be quite angry. I have known many depressives, particularly older females, in whom the main symptom was simply smoldering rage. Many depressed men are quite angry. Quite a few mass shooter cases which often end in suicide or “suicide by cop” are done by depressed males. Homicidal fantasies are quite common in depression. Not as common as suicidal fantasies, but still common. Look how many homicides are murder-suicides. These are usually done by depressed males going out in a blaze of glory determined to take someone with them.

Dumb Video About Cuba

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVRlhgPF2U4]
What else would you expect from the pro-capitalist BBC?
First lie: about 1/4 of the way into the video, the narrator states that Cuba’s economy is in a “state of collapse.” He then states that Cuba’s economy has been failing for 40 years. That would mean it has been failing since around 1970. Does he mean that it was succeeding for 10 years, and then it started failing? Let us look at a chart:

Excellent chart shows Cuba's economy compared to others in Central America and the Caribbean.
Excellent chart shows Cuba’s economy compared to others in Central America and the Caribbean. Click to enlarge.

Look at the chart above to see how stupid the BBC statement was. Look at the blue line and then find 1970 on the chart. Note that the general trend from 1970 to present has been upwards. In addition, from 1978-1991, Cuba’s economy was beating that of Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Yes, the line from 1960-1970 is relatively flat, but so was that of the other nations during this period. And look at the trend from 1945-1959 under capitalism. Absolutely flat.
Even now, Cuba is beating Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras and Nicaragua. Only the Dominican Republic is beating Cuba, and Cuba is better in many ways than the D.R.
Look at the trend line of the skyrocketing economy from 1993-present. This is the period in which the BBC states the Cuban economy was “failing” and “in a state of collapse.” Look that way to you?
So the BBC is lying. Cuba’s economy has not been failing for 40 years, at least not compared to its neighbors. If it’s been failing, the economies of all of its neighbors has been failing too. Cuba’s economy is not in a state of collapse. Instead it has been growing by leaps and bounds since 1993, and since 2005, it has surpassed even the great achievement of 1983-1991. Cuba’s economy is doing better than at any time in its history.
Let us compare Cuba’s economy with Jamaica’s:

                  Cuba    Jamaica   Greece
poverty %         1       14.3
GDP per capita $  9,700   4,100
unemployment %    1.7     14.5
Debt % of GDP     34.6    131.7     126

As you can see, Jamaica’s debt is even higher than that of Greece! What a catastrophe.
In addition, GDP growth in recent years has been consistently higher in Cuba (with a trend growth rate being at the very least 2% higher in Cuba).
Jamaica has faithfully followed the neoliberal Washington consensus laid down by the US, the IMF and the World Bank. This is what happens when you follow that model: failure.
The documentary goes to great pains to make the case that socialism has failed in Cuba and that now capitalism is replacing it. I think what we are looking at here is what I call “market socialism.” China also has a market socialist economy. I support the market socialist model in both China and Cuba. A small business sector is a very important aspect of any socialist economy, in my opinion.
Cuba is presently limiting the size of these new entrepreneurs. As they make more and more money, taxes start taking a bigger bite. That is painful, but most of the entrepreneurs say it is still worth it. The housing market is not as capitalist as you think. Cubans can still only own one house. This is essential to prevent the massive accumulation of housing stock in the hands of giant real estate tycoons and businesses. The size of the private farms is also limited. Actually, they are not even private farms since the land is leased from the state. The state owns all land in Cuba, and that is the way it should be. Most of the problems of capitalism stem from the private ownership of land, particularly farmland. How much land do you need anyway?
The housing situation in Havana is painful to watch. However, this collapsing housing is in general limited to Havana. I wonder what the solution to this might be. I could imagine entrepreneurs could form small construction companies or construction collectives could form. Neighborhoods could also band together to fix their own housing stock. If you have been on the waiting list for a housing renovation for 16 years, obviously that model is just not working.
The hamburger joint the fellow fashioned out of his home is a great idea, but I am not sure if he should be allowed to franchise it out. There needs to be limits placed on how rich a man can become and how many businesses he may own.
The part about the ballet was very touching. This is why I am a socialist. The finest ballet company in the whole land, the national ballet company, hosts performances that are so cheap (30 cents) that they are available to just about any Cuban! Wow. Here in the USA, ballet and other arts is generally affordable only by people who have money. Most of the people I know surely do not have the money to go to the ballet.
Note the segment about the ballet dancer. She is one of 500 students at the national ballet school in Havana. Obviously, competition was very tight to get in. The school is 100% free, while in the US, it might costs $20-30,000 a year. That means that only rich people could afford to learn to be ballet dancers, no matter how talented they are. That is just wrong. Education ought to be offered based on talent and aptitude, not how much money you have.
That ballet performance and the ballet school. Now that’s why I am a socialist.

Child of Rage

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g2-Re_Fl_L4&feature=youtube_gdata_player]
Fascinating HBO documentary from 1989 about Beth Thomas, a severely abused child. Beth was born ion 1983 and she was 6 years old when this movie was shot. She was severely abused by her stepfather, who is not dead. Most of the abuse was apparently sexual. The sexual abuse seems to have started very early, perhaps when she was one year old. The mother appears to have abandoned Beth.
Beth was taken away from her parents due to the abuse and given to a couple, Julie and Tim. Tim is actually a prominent Christian preacher who has a Wikipedia entry. Julie and Tim had a very hard time with Beth, who was violent towards her brother, towards animals, and even threatened her parents. A child psychologist who saw her said she needed to be removed from the home immediately. She was placed in a special home for children with severe behavioral disorders and given attachment therapy, which is now discredited. Her attachment therapist later accidentally suffocated a young boy with a pillow in the midst of a re-birthing session and the therapy is now outlawed.
The Beth you see in this movie is almost pure evil. She appears to be turning into a sociopath. After intensive therapy, she made remarkable progress and seemed to be a normal youngster. Beth Thomas is now a psychiatric nurse who works in a hospital. She is said to be healthy, but in the comments a man who works with her stays she still has a lot of issues.
I would like to point out that this is the main reason why molesting kids is so evil. This is what happens to (some) kids who get molested!
The Southern accents of both Beth, the church members and to a much lesser extent her parents can be a bit hard to understand. That accent is from Atlanta, Georgia.

Most Evil Rankings

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BQV9vEQa20Y]
I really enjoyed this video. This fellow named Dr. Stone has ranked a variety of killers on a scale of 1-23 according to how evil they were. I was not even familiar with a lot of these characters. Others were familiar to me. I appreciated that he decided that many killers were not psychopathic. That would seem to be correct. You certainly do not have to be a certifiable sociopath or psychopath to kill someone or even to kill more than one person.
However, most spree and serial killers are sociopaths. This is because most non-sociopaths could not handle killing, then waiting a long time, and then killing again. The non-psychopath can maybe kill once and even then they are often eaten up with guilt and anxiety. The guilt and anxiety is so great that they can’t do it again.
I tell you, if I killed someone in some mad killing, I would be going completely crazy over it, probably for the rest of my life. The guilt, anxiety and fear in the near term aftermath would be so extreme that I would probably just have to turn myself in at least to keep from killing myself because committing a mad killing would probably make me suicidal. That is, if I could even do such a thing in the first place, which is extremely dubious.
A lot of the non-sociopathic killers are instead narcissistic. This makes sense. The narcissist can actually be dangerous. It is not uncommon for them to stoop to physical violence and many narcissists are sadistic. They can definitely kill sometimes but usually they do not.

Human Safari

Of the Jarawa Negritos in the Andaman Islands.
Read the comments. All of the Indian Hindus defend this garbage, and most of the superior Westerners condemn it. This is because Western values are superior and Indian Hindu values are simply inferior. That is all there is to it. It is not ok to treat human beings like they are animals in a zoo. Sorry, no.

Israeli Spies in Syria

They are good, very good, very, very damn good. Nobody is better than the Mossad. As much as I hate Israel, I must admit that. It is important to respect your enemy in warfare, especially if they are very good. I remember in one recent war the top general kept a portrait of his counterpart of the other side on his desk every day, and he looked it all the time. He had no hate for the man, and he had utmost respect for him. This is the way to fight war!
I am sorry that Syria did not build that nuclear plant and then develop those nuclear missiles. I would love it if Syria had nuclear weapons. That would be so cool!

Child Killer Murdered in Prison

Victim of the convict code.
I actually do not mind this sort of thing. While I am opposed to the death penalty, I feel that certain killers just need to die, period. If not die, then have lots of horrible things happen to them. I do not want the state to do these bad things, but I do not mind if other inmate scumbags administer a little justice.
One thing that keeps me from doing bad things is an absolute terror of prison or even jail for that matter. I have spent 6 hours in jail in my whole life, and if I can help it, I swear to God I am never going back to that place ever again.
And these were “easy” city jails. For a nice middle class White boy like me, those places are the worst Hell imaginable. And quite a few of the arresting officers and even jailers are mean and cruel almost beyond belief. The first time the cops threatened to murder me, and the jailer told me I was staying in there forever. The second time the cops beat my head against the ceiling of the car and then threw me up against the wall of the intake room. The really delighted in this stuff. I think most cops are seriously sadistic.
The end result of those experiences is that while I am no longer a hardcore cop hater, I am not exactly wild about police officers if you know what I mean.
I have worked with some narcotics and homicide detectives on homicide and narcotics cases though (I am not usually a snitch, but sometimes paybacks are a bitch in the law of the street). I really liked those detectives a whole lot, but that is another story.
I did have a run-in with two other detectives who were the exact opposite. I can’t tell you the details of that story, but I will tell you that that they threatened very seriously to beat a confession out of me.
“If you don’t admit you’re guilty right now, WE ARE GOING TO KICK YOUR ASS!”
I refused to admit I was guilty of the crime they thought I had committed because honestly I wasn’t, but they told me never to come back, and they told me I would never teach in Los Angeles again. The latter was not true. I was teaching the next day. I do not believe I was guilty of any crime anyway (other than disturbing the peace, which means anything a cop wants it to mean). I did something really stupid, but it was not with a malicious heart or criminal intent and, no one was harmed, other than a few people got scared.

The Side Effects of Statin Drugs

New report condemns their use.
I have been on these drugs for some time due to high cholesterol. It is interesting that while they indeed do lower cholesterol, they do not have a lot of other obvious benefits aside from that, and in addition, they have a lot of bad side effects.

OJ Paroled

Court ruled that he is going to be paroled.
I just went and reread the facts of this case, and this guy is guilty as Hell of murdering Ron and Nicole. There has hardly been a more obvious guilty of murder case in history without witnesses and minus a confession. The evidence against him was simply overwhelming.
If you go to White nationalist sites, you find quite a few Whites who say that they liked Blacks just fine until the OJ case. The Black reaction to that case disgusted them, and they began to realize that Blacks either are our enemies or see White people as the enemy. At that point, they turned against Blacks. Many were good White liberals up until that point. Black people really screwed up on that case big-time.
Of course the narcissist (and sociopath?) OJ could not stay out of trouble for long. He was soon involved in a complex case involving the beating and armed robbery of a memorabilia collector who was supposedly selling some stuff that was really OJ’s property. The incident took place in a hotel room in Las Vegas. This guy has one Hell of a sense of entitlement (stemming from his extreme narcissism).
OJ will serve another 18 months on a variety of weapons charges.

Bigfoot News September 21, 2013

The Rick Dyer interview! I was recently offered an exclusive interview with Rick Dyer by Frank Cali, Rick’s Vice President on Team Tracker. Although Rick and I have had our differences in the past and Rick has libeled me in a pretty serious way, Rick admitted on the air recently that he had lied about me and apologized.
I am basically a softie and I make up with just about any former enemies. There are very few people I have run out of my life on moral grounds alone. I do not hold grudges and I do not burn bridges. As far as I am concerned, this is the only way to walk through life. There are a few folks who I have given many chances to and they have failed all of them, so the door is not really open anymore, but in most cases with fallen out friends, the door remains open.
I ended a lot of these friendships because I did not like the way I was being treated, but the door remains open for most of these folks to come back if they let bygones be bygones and start treating me with the respect that I require of a friend, which of course shall be returned. A few fallen out friends have figured out the new friendship requirements, played by them and are back in the game. Last time I was in Orange County, I heard that an old friend wanted to see me. Unfortunately, I did not get to see him. I will not be looking any of these folks up (learned my lesson about that one) but if they want to look me up, they are free to if they want to play by the new rules.
I also believe that you need to keep your friends close and your enemies closer. Rick Dyer is capable to doing quite a bit of damage to you and did just that to me. That is a formidable enemy. It is also an enemy that needs to be neutralized. So in many cases, I try to neutralize enemies by striking up some sort of deal with them to call off the war. Bottom line is it better not to be on Rick Dyer’s Hate List. If befriending him means neutralizing a enemy or possible enemy, then so be it. This is how smart people walk, and you will figure out out sooner or later. The path of revenge is fraught with many landmines and a lot of folks discover this only too late.
The interview took place last week on September 16, 2013. Some of the questions came from me, but I put out a call for questions to anyone, Dyer supporters, skeptics and haters in particular, to give me any questions they wanted me to ask Rick. About 50% of the questions had to be discarded due to irrelevance or sheer meanness. An examples of an irrelevant question was, “If you could be any animal, which one would you be?” A typical vicious was a “When did you stop beating your wife” type question such as, “Rick, when you are going to stop lying?”
I did leave in some questions that were very tough questions for Rick, although they were not particularly mean-spirited. 30 minutes before the show, I emailed Frank Cali a copy of the questions and he offered to read them to Rick. However, Rick said he wanted to do the interview blind, so that is how it went. It was brave of him to do this interview with all these questions from haters and particularly to dare to do so blind. But Rick Dyer is an intrepid fellow.
I also posted the questions on my website in the comments section (which has become very lively these days) about 30 minutes before the show went on.
The interview lasted somewhere around 1 hour.
I received a lot of criticism for doing a softball interview, but those are the only kinds of interviews that I do. I have a BA in Journalism from California State University in Long Beach, where I wrote for papers and the magazine. I also worked as an editor of a magazine for a while after I graduated so I know this field well.
Bottom line is that softball interviews are the only kind that work at all. I will not do hostile interviews because I figure the interviewee will simply shut down the interview and walk away or start firing back at me. Sometimes these are conducted with you and the interviewee alone somewhere, and if you anger them too much, things might get heated, they might start yelling at you, or perhaps things might escalate into physical violence. Even if it does not get that far, it’s an ugly scene with bad vibes all around.
An interview is a partnership between the interviewer and the interviewee, two on a team working together. A hostile interview means the team has fallen apart into warring factions. Good luck with that interview.
I believe in investigative reporting and I often critique all sorts of folks, sometimes in ferocious terms, in both private and public life, so softball interviewing does not preclude objectivity or the desire to get at the truth, which is hardly what journalism is about anymore anyway.
In recent years, on TV especially, hostile gladiator interviews have become very popular among so-called journalists conducting a very sleazy type of sensationalist journalism. Bottom line is I think hostile interviewing borders on a violation of journalistic ethics. I would do a softball interview with Ted Bundy or the Devil himself. Bad guys will hang themselves with their words anyway, and a softball interview with a bad guy allows them to do just that.
Detectives and especially anthropologists and linguists (I have worked as a linguist and an anthropologist) also need to have a good relationship with their informants or even suspects and arestees. You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar.
I also believe that off the record  means off the record. In recent years, sleazoid journalists have published off the record comments just to get the scoop and win a ratings war. This is severe violation of journalistic ethics, one of the worst of all.
Anyway, on to the video!
[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egiRKOtiZMU]

  1. What do you really think of Steve Kulls? Rick said that Kulls was a really nice guy to your face, but then he stabs you in the back. He then went on to describe a variety of things surrounding the 2008 hoax, which he implied Kulls was a part of. Rick said the one thing he regrets is that he did not tape-record Kulls’ phone conversations, implying that Kulls was in on the hoax with Rick.
  2. Why did you target the BF community in 2008? You came in with all guns firing and said you were going to take down a big-name BF researcher. What was driving you that you were so hostile to the community back then? Rick said the idea for the hoax came when he and a cop friend were hunting in the woods. They said, “Hey, let’s pretend we shot a Bigfoot.” And so the hoax was born. Neither of them believed in Bigfoot, and both thought that believers were morons. Later on at some point, the Bigfoot community turned on Rick, the cop and Biscardi, and all of them received a lot of abuse and threats. Rick said it was due to these effects that he and the others developed a lot of anger towards the community.
  3. Musky believes Bob H when Bob H says that Gimlin made up the walk and look of Patty. But if Hank, a real BF, had the same walk and look of Patty, then how could Gimlin have made up the walk and look of a real BF if he had never seen one? Rick said that I would have to ask Musky about this question.
  4. Since you say the movie is top-notch, can you post a trailer of it on your website? Most movies have trailers. How about a hand or a foot of Hank? Can you show us some proof that Hank is real? Can you commit to a date when you might post a preview or trailer of your movie? Rick refused to post a trailer of the movie, but he did not give much of a reason for doing so.
  5. Why does the Tent Video creature appear to be so different from the Shooting Bigfoot still? Rick said they were taken at different camera angles and at different times of the day with different cameras.
  6. Do you feel it was immoral to shoot a weapon in an area with a known significant human population of homeless? He was not worried morally about the possible dangerous implications to the people in the area by what he was going to do.
  7. Do you think it was moral to bait the BF when it is illegal to bait known game species? He had no moral problems with this, and anyway, a Bigfoot is not a known game species.
  8. Do you have the reefer truck paperwork and could you post it on your website? He does have the reefer truck paperwork, but he refuses to post it and the haters would subject the company to tremendous abuse and harassment and he does not want to subject them to that.
  9. What will happen if the DVD does not sell 100 copies? What are your plans for refunds? He will issue full refunds to everyone.
  10. Why are you not yet rich? If you are going to be famous from this shooting, why won’t your investor set you up now so you can pay them back later? He has actually already received $300,000 from his investors.
  11. Who do you trust? Anyone? Anyone in the BF community? He trusts no one, and especially no one in the Bigfoot community.
  12. You admit to lying in the past and even recently in the present. With this background, why can’t you give skeptics some understanding if they are wary of believing you? He doesn’t blame people for not believing him or for being skeptics. He said that if someone else was claiming to do what he had done, he would not believe them either. He implied that the skeptics were taking a perfectly rational position. He supports skeptics but he does not like haters.
  13. Are you really dedicated to the study of this creature or are you just in this for the money and fame/notoriety? Rick said he is now dedicated to the study of these amazing creatures.
  14. The reefer truck was not used to load the BF body. Another truck was used for that. Will both the reefer truck and the other truck be shown in the movie? There was only one truck, the reefer truck. That is the one you will see.
  15. Why won’t you put up a short trailer of the movie? You have nothing to lose. By not doing so, it looks like you have something to hide. One again, he said he would do so. He offered the extremely unlikely argument that putting up a trailer would harm sales, when clearly it would increase sales.
  16. About the scientists studying the body – do they have plans to release the data somehow, and if so, through which branch of the government will they do so? He really does not know much about the science team, and the federal government is not involved with them. The federal government only got involved a few times, once at the university where the woman congratulated him for killing the Bigfoot, and a couple of other times when federal law enforcement came to take samples of the body to make sure Rick did not kill a human being.
  17. Why did Derek Randles not go to see the BF body? Rick said that everyone who has seen the body has been subjected to incredible harassment by haters, and he did not want Derek, a family man, to suffer from such harassment.
  18. Is Bryan Sykes involved in the study of the Bigfoot in any way? Have samples of Hank been submitted to Sykes? Have the Hank scientists worked or communicated with the Sykes scientists in any way? If not, why not? Rick said he didn’t even know who Sykes was, which is shocking if it is true. However, some viewers said that Rick smirked when he said that, implying that maybe Rick really did know who Sykes was and he was lying.
  19. If you didn’t believe in BF all those years that you were hunting one, what were your investors investing in all those years? You always said they were investing in your effort to kill a BF? Rick basically said that although he did not believe in Bigfoot, the investors did. Rick certainly was not going to tell them that he did not believe in Bigfoot. Rick basically thought the investors and everyone else who believed in Bigfoot were idiots, and Rick was frankly more than happy to take their money. Nevertheless, Rick did genuinely search for the creature for a few years.
  20. You stated that the body is not preserved or embalmed. How then are you able to keep it in proper shape? It is indeed preserved. There are special ways of doing this, but he does not have the details on how the science guys were preserving the body.
  21. How did the body spend 45 days in a reefer truck without decomposing? Here Rick changed his story. Before he said that he had rented the reefer truck and kept the body in it for 45 days while the government was building a special facility for the body, now he said that he only had the body in the truck for 7 days. He also implied that he had lied previously about the government team having to build some makeshift area for the Bigfoot. “I know I said something dumb about them having to build a special facility to house the Bigfoot,” he said, implying that that part Rick had just made up.
  22. One of the haters wants to know when you will “put up or shut up” as they put it. That is, when you will provide with good solid evidence of this deed? Rick said that there will be a press conference in December after which the body would be revealed. Later on, someone asked if they would have to wait two years to sell the video on Ebay and make a big profit. Rick said, “Oh man, you won’t have to wait two years! You can sell it on December 16!” This statement implied that the December press conference would occur on December 15. However, the 15th is a Sunday, so the presser may really be on Monday the 16th.
  23. Why have none of the homeless who were there at the time come forward? Rick said that they paid all of them to move away, gave them rent money, bought them cars, etc. They are all on a monthly stipend on the grounds that if they talk about the Bigfoot shooting, their stipend ends. So that is why they have all kept quiet about the shooting.
  24. Why are you suing David Durrett? Rick stated that he was indeed suing David, and said there was some conflict about artwork that was driving this.
  25. Is it true that you had a stutter when young and if so, how did you get rid of it? Rick said that when he was 5 years old, his father threw him in a lake knowing full well that Rick could not swim. Rick implied that his father had basically tried to kill him. Others jumped in when Rick sank like a rock. They had a hard time finding him at first, but soon they did find him and brought him to shore. Rick said that he had nearly died at that time, and implied there might have been some brain damage from this near death experience. Ever since then, he had a stutter all through childhood, possibly from PTSD from the trauma of the incident or possibly from some brain damage due to the near drowning.
  26. Was your childhood happy or unhappy? What was your relationship like with other children in the school years? Rick said that his childhood was pretty much happy. In the early years when his stutter was bad, a lot of kids made fun of him, but at some point, the stutter got better and he went on to become popular in junior high and high school.
  27. How many TT members are there, gold and platinum? Rick said that there are 3,700 TT members and of those, 2,300 are paid. However, former TT sources told me that this is a lie and that the real number is more like 300 TT members in total.
  28. Did you put raw ribs up on the trees or did you cook them first? If you cooked them, can you show us the recipe? The ribs were put up raw. There is no recipe because he did not cook them. Instead he just heated them over a fire for about 20 seconds.
  29. Will you give us the month of the press release if not the actual date? From above we can see that the press conference is slated to occur on December 15 or possibly the 16th. I would add unless it is delayed, as Rick has already delayed release of this body several times now.
  30. Will we get to see Morgan Matthews in this video? Will we see him in the same scene as the dead BF or the trucks? Morgan is not in the DVD anywhere.
  31. If the body is going to be released anyway, then why bother trying to convince people you have a body and get mad at them when they don’t believe you? Why not wait until the body is revealed? He doesn’t blame people for not believing him and he says he would not believe himself either if he were someone else watching Rick Dyer. However, he does get mad at the haters.
  32. If you are going to be rich anyway, why bother to sell memberships? Well, he is not rich yet, and he needs some money to live on.
  33. Do you want to hunt and kill more BF’s besides Hank? Yes he does want to kill more Bigfoots and if he sees another Bigfoot and he has a gun with him, he will try to shoot it.
  34. If you shot and killed a BF in San Antonio, why has the federal government and any private entities that know of this not tried to send out parties to the area to capture a BF? Rick said that maybe these entities had actually conducted some sort of an investigation into the shooting. He doesn’t know if they have or have not. Perhaps they have.
  35. Did Frank Cali see the body the weekend before the expedition as he said he did? Yes he did.
  36. Did an attorney or paralegal prepare the NDA used before the Vegas expedition? No, Rick made them up himself, but he had an attorney look them over to make sure they were ok.
  37. Were the NDA’s notarized by those who signed them? The attorney said that they did not need to be notarized, but Rick thought they did, so Rick had them all notarized.
  38. Did DJ Bashers see the body? No he did not.
  39. Why did DJ Bashers say he saw the body as it left San Antonio? He never said he saw a body.
  40. Has the FBI made you aware that you were subject of any ongoing investigation? No, he is not aware of any investigations into any of these people.
  41. What happened to the following people from TT 2012: DJ Bashers, Mike Summer, Bigz Marlo, Chris Hampton, Kassy Miller, and Raymond Keys? Most of these people simply “didn’t have what it takes” to be a part of TT. Some of them had family, work and other obligations.

Our Future

By 2050, the United States of America will finally join the Americas, not just figuratively as always but now literally.
By 2050, the United States of America will finally join the Americas, not just figuratively as always but now literally.

The torch has passed on White America, or will pass within most of our lifetimes. By 2050, the US will be a majority non-White country. The largest group will probably be a partly-White or at least half-White group called Hispanics for lack of a better term. The history of the Americas has been, for better or worse, the marriage of two great races, the Amerindian and the European. From this foundry, the Americans were molten over 500 years from hunter gatherer bands to modern hopelessly mixed race societies.
Catholicism, Iberian culture and lingering Amerindian ways have characterized this societies, along with patriarchal, conservative views that created such things as “machismo” and “the Madonna/whore” syndrome. There is also a profound Arabization, via Iberia, that is unfortunately apparent throughout the region. Even the Whiter Latins such as the Argentines suffer profound identity confusion, being part of the White European world but at the same time being outside of it. Hence the indulgent Argentines use more psychotherapy than any group on Earth and the couch has become a national obsession.
Around the Caribbean and into Brazil, a heavy Black element comes into play, often mixing with the European and even Indian elements in Venezuela, Colombia and Brazil. The vibrancy, musicality, vivid colors and pagan religions mean that Africa tossed its ingredients into this wild mix.
The US and especially Canada were always outliers. They thought they could resist the inevitability of becoming a part of the Americas. By 2050, the US will have joined with the Caribbean, Mesoamerica and South America and will officially be dragged kicking and screaming into the continent which it always denied it was a part of it.
Interesting times lie ahead.

Whites, The Civilized Race

The superiority of Whites begins and ends with the White family. Whites are better because White families are better. White families are better because White family values are better.
The superiority of Whites begins and ends with the White family. Whites are better because White families are better. White families are better because White family values are better.

Some races are superior and some are just inferior. The Whites are among the higher races because they are superior and more civilized on many variables. They are also superior in intelligence, lower crime and pathology rates and abilities to build coherent, functioning and prosperous cultures and societies. Whites are simply better. Better means superior.
The lower races include Hispanics, Blacks and some others. They are inferior to Whites in many ways. They are less intelligent, have higher rates of pathology and crime and tend to create chaotic, mess, dangerous, sloppy, idiocratic cultures ridden with horrific poverty and Hellish slums. Democracy is antithetical to them. Their elites steal almost all the money in society and leave the rest with crumbs because lower races are not capable of democracy and equitable distribution of wealth which requires high levels of empathy, tolerance, control of ones emotions, magnanimity, selflessness and ability to delay gratification.
In short, Whites are simply better. Period. If you inferior races do not like it, too bad. Time to bow down at the feet of your White masters, untermenschen!
Remember those 14 special words!

Nigel Lawson, Infectious Pustule!

I do not know much about British politics, but I read enough about it to be able to call this guy an utter jerkoff. A male Thatcher, this is guy one of the closest things the British have to a politician who is as rightwing as the US Republican Party. I don’t like guys like this. If I saw him in public, I would whip out my crucifix, hold it in his face to temporarily blind him and hope he would recoil and creep away.

Ideology Drives Degrees, Not the Other Way Around

MarkWMark says:

It’s my belief that a primary driver of liberalism in academia, is that advanced degrees in humanities don’t have market value except to teach. Of course someone with a PhD in sociology who’s lucky to have a $25,000 job, will believe that society doesn’t distribute its rewards fairly.
I remember seeing some survey results about liberalism among college professors by field of study, where the most liberal were humanities, and the least liberal were engineering and finance. If I could find it again, I bet there’s a very strong correlation between liberalism and average starting salaries for graduates in the field.

Mark feels that choice of field of study and type of degree drives enrollment rather than the other way around. He has it all backwards.
It hasn’t much to do with salaries. Only liberal/Left types get Humanities degrees anyway. Rightwingers in those disciplines are ostracized and drummed out. Of course rightwingers will go into finance. And engineers are always rightwing. It has been that way forever, since I was a boy. If I went to get a Finance degree, I would be surrounded by Libertarian – neoclassical – neoliberal – laissez faire radical capitalists. I would be the only Leftie in my class. I would feel like a complete idiot and would be ostracized completely.
Some disciplines just select more of certain types. Liberal/progressive people tend to move towards Humanities and rightwing dickwads go towards finance, business, engineering and all of that jazz. The ideology comes first, then the enrollment. Ideology drives majors, not the other way around.
Most of us Lefties despise money, hate people who prostrate themselves before Mammon, despise those who value money and the things it buys as the primary or only value in existence, etc. It’s not so much that money is bad. Of course we love it too. I once did a drug deal in 1985 in which I made $300 for an hour’s work. It was easy as pie. Everyone likes money and even the things it can buy. It’s just that Lefties do not particularly care about money and stuff, and we more or less think it is all unimportant or verging on worthless. That is, we reject the reactionary idea, which is a basic capitalist value, that humans who have more money and stuff are better humans in any way, morally or otherwise, than humans who have less money or stuff. We will take the money and stuff, but we hate the rat race – keeping up with the Joneses and especially elevating moneyed folks and looking down on less moneyed folks. We regard all of that as complete garbage.
On the other land, we live in capitalist society too, and we need to survive and it is better to live well than to live like a dog in poverty. Without money, you have a horrid life in America. So most Lefties would like to have enough money so that we do not have to worry about money too much anymore.
Most of us have made good money at various times in our lives. I have worked for wages ranging from $23=65/hour, and that was 10-25 years ago when money went further. It’s just that once you get into the money game, everyone you meet is a rightwing or money-obsessed dick. So it’s not really the money, it’s more the rightwing human garbage that comes along as a free addition to the green stuff.

Skull Phobia

Skeptoid writes:

Can you please post some Indian skulls? The ones I’ve seen so far are like some sort of highly-variated human average, but overall resembling more African Negroids and Australoid types. Unfortunately Google images won’t conveniently sort “Indian” from “Native-American”.

Sorry but I HATE skulls. Every time I see a skull, I have to put my hand over the image on the page or screen or if it is TV or movie, I have to look away until the skull goes away. I have a terrible phobia of any human skulls, and I just cannot look at them at all. I do not even like Halloween too much because of all the damn skulls.
However, what I do know about Indian skulls is that one thing they definitely are not is African. I have read a study that put Tamil skulls in with Senoi, Negritos, Papuans, and other Australoids. That sounds about right. Many other Indian skulls, especially as one goes north, look quite Caucasoid. As my Mother says when I tell her than Indians are Caucasians, “Yes! They look like White people with a tan!”

The Cruel and Soulless World of Academia

Here.
In the corporate world, this would simply be a footnote, but academia is now nearly as soulless, cruel and mean-spirited as the corporate world. 50% of courses are now taught by “adjunct professors.” They make on average maybe $25,000/yr. In a bad year, they make $10,000. They get little to no health benefits. Some go on for decades like this. I do not want to live in a nation where the average professor scrapes by on part-time work at $25,000/yr. Screw that. Especially when the university president is making $700,000/yr. That is just garbage.
This woman’s house was actually collapsing in on her and it was becoming a dangerous place to live. She simply did not have the money to fix it up. Further, medical bills were cleaning her out. She was forced into retirement by the university, who gave her no severance or retirement package.
This is so not right. American values? USA, USA, go go go! We’re number 1! We’re number 1!
Why bother with any of that? What are American values anymore? The above. That’s American values. American values are now corporate values.
When corporate values become the normative American values, you can kiss Mom, apple pie, baseball and all the good stuff goodbye. American values become crap values and only a moron would be a patriotard. You would look at the damn flag and your heart would sink. That is what we are all coming to.
Enjoy the ride folks!
Late capitalism, ain’t it just peachy?

Great Documentary on the Aryan Brotherhood!

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fh8mhmf-l_E]
Interesting documentary. I do not really care about the racist nature of the gang. The gang was originally formed to protect Whites from the depredations of the Blacks and Hispanics in Western prisons, especially in California. I am not sure how seriously most of these guys take the racist stuff anyway. One of the two top leaders of the AB is part-Jewish! It is mostly about protecting Whites in prison, and beyond that it is a criminal organization involved in dealing in drugs and gambling inside and now outside prison. They also traffic in male prostitutes inside prisons.
I was more interested in the inmates profiled – what kind of people are they, what is this guy like, what is he thinking, what kind of life does he have, what are his values. The two main guys profiled in this are more or less decent guys who left the AB. One left it because the AB killed an innocent old man and a woman outside prison (he says no killing old men, women or kids and good for him!). The other guy was very much offended by the AB’s dealing in drugs inside prison which ended up killing way more Whites inside and outside prison than minorities did. He basically said we are dealing in death and killing our own people. Good for him!
I always think it is interesting when folks who are pretty damned bad do end up having some serious moral limits and are even willing to risk their lives to defend those moral values. Both of this guys are on hit lists for leaving the AB.
I will say though that the AB is one of hardest, baddest bunch of mofo’s that I have seen in quite some time. I would not mess with them at all for any reason.
