This does not change the fact however that just because you don’t deliberately do damage that somehow you are detached and disassociated from causing problems, this latest business on your website dealing with Mike’s passing and the mad rantings of Tony Blizzard being a prime example.
For the record, here is a ‘bird’s eye view’ of the items listed in Tony Blizzard’s blizzard of nonsense–
Mike’s position on Sandy Hook, Boston, etc, were Mike’s. Anyone who knew Mike knew that he had an indomitable intellect and could not be convinced of anything which he himself did not believe to be true. As he liked to describe himself, he was a ‘stickler for details’ and had NO patience whatsoever for sloppy theorizing and speculation.
Blizzard and others who are bothered by this and seek some ‘conspiracy’ in understanding and explaining Mike’s take on SH, Boston, etc, do nothing more than make fools of themselves in doing so, because, after all, what they are expecting us all to believe is that Mike–clearly the brightest mind this ‘movement’ ever produced who singularly decoded and uncovered the whosits and whatsits of the JFK assassination (and other events) was somehow unable to ‘see’ what people such as Blizzard & co have convinced themselves was the case.
By the way, as a friend, Mike thought very highly of Tony Blizzard but thought his views on Sandy Hook et al were insane and was more than a little bothered that someone whose intellect he had always respected could have gotten so completely detached from reality as to become a full fledged ‘hoaxer’.
Next, how Blizzard would somehow associate Mike’s favorable ideas concerning Islam with me (a Christian and not a Muslim, but who has gone to great lengths in explaining to people just how they are being lied to by Jewish interests concerning what Islam teaches) leaves me bewildered, in addition to what Blizzard asserts are the directives in the ‘Koran’ referring to Christians as ‘infidels’ who deserve to be killed.
He is delusional and if he can’t get this one right–what the Qu’ran actually says–when all it takes is a mere 5 minutes of reading then why anyone would give such an ‘investigator’ a place of honor on their website to peddle his latest ‘theories’ concerning Mike’s death would lead me to question their sanity as well.
Next, Mike did not ‘choose’ to come and live with us–he had no other choice other than to die on the streets of DC. He had an estranged relationship with his brother–the only ‘family’ he had, and the only other person (of which I am aware) who offered Mike a home was Nashid Abdul Khalliq who had rental properties in Texas and offered one to Mike rent-free for life, which Mike did refuse on the basis that he needed help getting around and didn’t know anyone in Houston where these rental properties were. And while it is possible Mike was offered to come and live with Blizzard, he made no mention of it to me that I can recall.
Next, my ‘guest house’, as Blizzard referred to it (and just why he would put that in quotation marks as if it didn’t exist I can’t even begin to imagine. I guess it must be a ‘hoax’ as well) did not ‘burn down’, a little discrepancy that reveals just how detached from the facts Blizzard (and hence his theories and conclusions) are. The roof caught fire, burned along the entire length of the house, (roughly 34 feet and a good 4 feet down the rafters to the collar ties) and did substantial structural damage that necessitated Mike going to a hotel for safety reasons. The ‘railing on the porch’ as Blizzard put it was not ‘sabotaged’ and the proof of this is that there WASN’T ANY RAILING. A section of the porch did collapse under Mike’s weight as he stepped on it, hurting the shin of his right leg considerably, but 15 minutes later when I asked MIke if he wanted to go to the hospital he said no, that the pain was subsiding, which amazed me, given as much pain as he was constantly in and how much worse it had to have been after he scraped his legs.
The reason the floor collapsed is that it was a new porch built with old wood right before Mike arrived, had 3 feet of snow sitting on it throughout the months of December, January, February, and March and afterwards was subjected to months of rain which weakened the wood and thus collapsed in one section when Mike stepped on it. I know Mike thought it was sabotaged, but the person to blame for this was me, the guy who used old wood in building it and who did not put a roof over it as I was in a rush to get the living quarters themselves in order for Mike before he arrived.
One part Blizzard did manage to get right was Mike being upbeat before he died. He had gotten himself into a new apartment in the old part of CdA that was considerably more comfortable than our (hoax) ‘guest’ house and indeed he was getting ready to start writing again. The topic he planned on ‘exposing’ dealt Willis and Elizabeth Carto and the dealings they had had with others over the years, how they had screwed various people over (just as they had Mike) and what he believed to be criminal activity on their part in hiding money from both the government and the readers/subscribers to AFP and TBR. Before Mike left DC and came out here, he wrote everything down and sent it to me (a 20+ page document) detailing what had been done to him by them and asked that I go public with it when/if he ever died.
I still have the papers but due to the fact that what they represented to me were just the bitter words of a man who had been stabbed in the back by the people to whom he had given 34 years of his life, I saw no point in opening yet another ugly chapter in all of this that would have caused even more heartache for everyone in the aftermath of his passing and thus just put the papers away, to say nothing of the manner that they would have made Mike appear when he was not in the position to defend himself.
Next I suppose that Blizzard will allege that there is something ‘fishy’ about me not releasing the papers, a charge to which–if indeed it were to come forth–my response would be that he can take a running jump straight into hell, something Mike used to say quite often.
Next–Blizzard’s assertion that there is an ‘exaggeration’ in my description of how bad-off Mike was physically. What absolute, unbridled idiocy on his part. Was Mike’s 98% blockage in his arteries a fabrication or exaggeration? How about his quintuple bypass surgery–an exaggeration as well? How about the fact that there were complications during Mike’s procedure where he almost died, or the various heart-related episodes he had here during his 6-month stay that required me personally taking him to the emergency room, on several occasions–Exaggerations? Fabrications? On this issue alone, Blizzard’s assertion that these are ‘exaggerations’ indicates that Mike’s original concerns that Blizzard had gone insane were/are well-founded.
As far as the meds Mike took ‘for pain’, I know he took Lyrica for a short while prior to coming out here but he told me it did him no good and he said he didn’t like the way it made him feel loopy and disconnected, so Blizzard’s theory concerning Mike being ‘delusional’ because of drugs is a non-starter as well.
Henry, you used to be one of the sharpest knives in the drawer and a gifted intellectual, so for the life of me, I can’t even begin to imagine why you would waste good web space on something like this other than it possibly causes your conspiracy funny bone to tingle and therefore you feel the need to ‘pass the bottle around’ to everyone else, making you in substance no different from the self-admitted lunatic Gordon Duff who proudly asserts that nearly half of the material he posts on VT is–in his own words– ‘deliberate disinformation.’
Goodbye Henry, have a good life
