Re: [georger] Cook's Puppets [In reply to] Can't Post

What Cook said about Blevins - Georger you will love this! This was a communication in 2010.

"Blevins doesn't have the slightest clue as to where Tina lives. Blevins smokes too much pot while he's doing his janitorial work. He sounds like a frustrated sex offender."


Now down to some of the research Cook had done

" I did the research on Bohan. Don't say this about me on the DZ............but you can use it, Jo. (Keep up the good work).
ps. Blevins is so full of shit that he needs to hire a janitor to clean up his messes. The guy is a effing idiot and blowhard".

NOTE:
I didn't use the entire email, but to let you know that Cook has over the yrs use many of us to get his ideas over. I hope he won't be offended as I removed the parts about his research on Bohan's flight.

Since this was in 2010 - just thought you might like to know that if Galen didn't want to talk to me as Bruce stated - why were we exchanging emails? And why was he providing me with fodder for the thread.

Georger, evidently neither of you have a high opinion of Blevins.

Frankly I like Blevins, but I don't agree with some of the stuff he posts with NO actual research behind some of his statement.

As for me I do NOT get into the technical STUFF, other than I know that our CB picked-up communications from a plane.
I will swear to that till the day I die. HOW? That was what the DZ had to figure out, but it did happen......

Right. And yet, I am not the one who hides behind someone else to make his points at DZ.

No, I don't have Tina's address. And if I did, unlike Cook, I would not park myself in front of her house and take pictures without her permission that end up on Huffington, The Mail, etc.

I'm glad you posted that, Jo. Shows Cook for what he really is. And was...the entire time.

Does anyone else want to criticize me further when I questioned Cook's claims in previous posts? I took a fair amount of abuse on that, but now you see for yourself what the guy is about. If what Jo says about this email is true, she should copy it over in its entirety, from top to bottom, showing sender and recipient. You can't get in trouble. When people send emails to others, there is no expectation of privacy.

This isn't a legal thing. I don't give a whit about that. It's a TRUTH thing.

Re: [RobertMBlevins] Cook's Puppets [In reply to] Can't Post

As you know I made copies of all of my communications with Cook because I have called him Sneaky Snake in the Grass, but he really is likeable and intelligent . He just let to many people lead him down avenues as I have been - and that hurts his image.

No I won't do any email in it's entirety and he and I both shared many things - good and bad. I did enough of this one to make my point. I can usually tell when Cook is using a poster to ask questions or make a statement.

Don't make a big deal out of it as I am not one to smear others. You see I get accuse of making things up - crazy delusion and off my rocker. Hopefully this will let you and some of the others realize - we ALL go off on tangents and explore thing - but the basics need to stay firm.

You Blevin like myself are not a pilot - so leave that to those who know. The Cooper Story if is ever told will be factual and hopefully all of the coulda woulda shouldas will make sense.

My only goal right now it the identity of the Salt Lake Pic and when that is done - I have to walk, because I have a long hard trip ahead of me and I need to stay focused on.

I am taking new medication and if I come back here later today and find I can't understand a thing I posted - I am in big trouble. This one acts on the neurological nerves and not just for pain. Those pain ones really really mess me up. This one is letting me be me - I think!

Will see when I come back Friday evening won't I.

Well, we know NWA didn't pay very well, either. I think after the hijacking, Mucklow was so shaken up she decided to 'split the whole scene' for good.

Gray quotes Flo Schaffner as saying Tina occasionally tried to proselytize that 'old time religion' with other NWA employees.Angelic

The last is correct, your first is not.
Do some fact checking -

You sure rely on Geoff Gray a lot!

Read the thread.

Werent you or arent you still a lay-preacher?

I laid a preacher's daughter once when I was a teenager. Does that count? Otherwise, no. As you've probably heard, all science fiction writers go straight to Hell when they die. I mean they don't even let you try to pitch your case to St Peter at the friggin' gate.

Gray is just another source. Like Tosaw, Himmelsbach, and the other Cooper book folks. If Mucklow didn't quit the airline, then did the convent let her out on weekends at least to do the domestic routes? I could just see that. Instead of a red uniform, she comes down the aisle with the meals dressed in a habit. She could say grace over the meal for the passenger as she handed it to them. A real time-saver for the passenger, I'm sure.

I didn't say WHEN she quit, but she obviously quit the airline at some point, and before any kind of retirement pay was due to her. I haven't researched Mucklow as much as others have. If she stayed with the airline for a while after the hijacking, she gets an 'A' for guts.

It's a TRUTH thing. (your words oft repeated at DZ)

I think after the hijacking, Mucklow was so shaken
up she decided to 'split the whole scene' for good.
(your words)

I didn't say WHEN she quit. (your words)

Well yes you did - you said "Mucklow was so shaken
up she decided to 'split the whole scene' for good."

Its your loseness with facts, then you always say you
didnt say something when in fact you did -

And you say: "Its a TRUTH thing".

Its a CREDIBILITY thing.

It would be easy to say 'I made a mistake', but
each you say: "I didnt day that" (when you did).
And you say "Its a TRUTH thing" - truth capitalised.

And the implication of your original statement is, in
your words: " Mucklow was so shaken up she
decided to 'split the whole scene' for good. "

You are claiming she left immediately due to stress
from the incident - "so shaken up" you say. When in
fact that's not true.


Its a CREDIBILITY thing. And you are always
attacking other people's credibility.

But this thread has become for entertainment and
you are entertaining to some. Keep you the good
entertainment in that no-credibility fashion. You're
on safe entertainment ground here where nobody
really cares .. in spite of using words like TRUTH and
CREDIBILITY which you use all the time.

Oh well ...

This is why I have no time for your complaints about
Cook. Its like the pot calling the kettle black. Except
that Cook has done some real research, even hiered
people to dosome real research, Cook actually talks
to the FBI, conducts interviews, shares some real
information ... then admitedly has some lose ends
like the Tina affair.

Youc an be critical of Cook all you want. On top of
your own infamous misfires its blowing smoke and
in fact, Cook doesn't give a shit what you say or

Reconsider Jo. Even if you freefall just once, you will dream about it for the rest of your life. It also is a confidence builder. When something seems daunting I just think if I can jump from a plane and bet my life on some sewn nylon, I can do this thing.

The verbal content may have sounded like it came from a pilot but any ground based CBer could have been the speaker.

A visual sighting of a plane wouldn't prove it unless you could read the pilot's lips and see that they synched with the voice signal you were hearing on the CB.

If evidence has a dozen possible interpretations you ALWAYS pick the one that best fits with the DW=DBC theory. There is a name for this. It is called bias.

So as a very uncontrolled experiment and for fun to while away the hours, myself and my shift partner hopped in his patrol car and switched his CB on ( he has a CB in addition to his PD issued radio) listened to the truckers for a few minutes, then when it was slow, we pretended to be a pair of 182's in the pattern for John C Tune Airport. The truckers would jump in and tell us to go to an exit on the Briley and look for the "Pilot", then bust out laughing.

But, we actually didn't get to talk to any planes with the CB, on out Hand held, yes, but it is a UHF/VHF radio designed to do that after all.

I'm sure he has. And I'm sure Tosaw was at it a long time, as well. I have never spoken about Cook in a personal way, nor have I gone around and said filthy things as were allegedly in that email. I have questioned his claims, yes. Just as others have questioned mine. Hell, I even question the FBI's claims sometimes.

I questioned his claims on the Janet Fable, the Golden Key, the trip to Vancouver, the idea that he relies heavily on family members for testimony on Gossett, and about him using pictures of Gossett from years before the hijacking to compare to the hijacker. They seemed like legit points. On the Tina Picture thing, well...that's just paparazzi stuff and was bound to happen sooner or later.

I never said he was an idiot, a 'frustrated sex offender,' or accused him of being a pothead. Cook does THAT. And...you seem to support these things.

Now you'll understand when I have suggested to you that doing things like this makes your credibility suffer. Common sense is lacking here, Georger. Blind support for someone just because you don't like someone else is a credibility issue.

And just for the record: Name one piece of hard evidence that really puts Gossett on the suspect list. Not allowed: Testimony from family members who have something to gain, or dead witnesses whose statements cannot be verified by a second party today.

By the way, working on the Cooper case is not a tenure thing, nor do you 'advance' just by being at it longer than others. It's the results you obtain that matters. And Cook's results, so far, are seriously lacking. After all these years, when I was the first to suggest that Cook and/or the Seattle FBI simply start interviewing the people Cook worked with in the military, and try to discover his whereabouts at the time of the crime...you didn't support that idea, either. Credibility.

The investigation into Christiansen may or may not result in him being revealed as D.B. Cooper. But a 'hoax' implies a deliberate lie, or possibly many lies, to support a case.

The case against Christiansen is supported by witness testimony, documents, and pictures. These are not hoaxes.

I mean...if you believe I simply invented a pack of lies and conjured the whole thing up...then you should just say so. Of course, I will ask you to offer at least a minimum of proof on that claim. Otherwise, I will relegate your 'hoaxer' junk to the same file where I keep the Janet Fable.

Turns out that if Jo's email from Cook is real, that Mr Cook has a dark side we never realized existed before. Well...I have a little surprise for Mr Cook. After some discussion with a couple of the staff, we're going to do a short video this weekend for YouTube. In it, I will present reasons why Gossett probably isn't the hijacker, and review Mr Cook's investigation into the case, using pictures, an article from the Utah Standard Examiner, and other items. I'm going to quote his email as well, which I think people should hear. Call it a lesson in manners, and a bit of sheet-pulling on his claims thus far.

In reply to:

Jo, how do you KNOW the transmission came from an aircraft?

It WAS not a CBer doing anything. The tone was different and you could hear the differance.

I asked Duane what it was - he said it was the plane above us - when I turned around - I do not remember if I saw the plane or not...we were going one way they were going the opposite way. They were asking something about Cheynene - but I don't remember the content. When Duane got on I do remember something about what he said - He mentioned frequency and then something I do not remember that was technical. They did NOT reply so Duane didn't know if they heard him or not....said something about range.

How can this be biased - as it is NOT related to Cooper. NO one knows if Cooper was able to pin point his landing and if there was someone helping or how he escaped. Until then we explore the subject and what we know about the subject or the hows and how nots. Possible versus ridiculous.

Yes, the meds are working for now at least. I just read the post I made last night - and it was OKAY! Actually was able to get out of the bed in a normal way. They seem to last about 8 hrs., plus they are NOT narcotic.
They also do not affect my speech or co-ordination. They do NOT take away all of the pain and nerve problem, but make the day more tolerable.

I do NOT know if the communication Duane made was received. I do KNOW the communication came in on the CB. The area was very very isolated for miles - it may have built up since 1979, but that is a long long road with nothing on it between Cheynne and Rock Springs.

What is a UHF/VHF? You see I do not know this stuff and did such exist in 1979 and why would someone have this and would it be possible for someone to have such in his car? These are simple questions - because I know NOTHING about CB's and the technology that might have been available in 1979. What would make a CB pick up plane communications - note I said pick up a conversation or communication NOT send and receive.

I hope the rest of you aren't wondering whether you ever sent Jo a private email venting about another person. We might have to rent the superdome for a mega-whackdown.

I'm not defending Cook -- IF he even sent those emails -- we just don't know, do we? Jo has been known to get her posts confused. You know it's true.Smile
Frankly, I could care less what folks say about me in their private emails (even if I know about it) - though to Blevins defense, it would probably piss me off if someone posted that email on an internet forum. I'm just not sure why people get off on stirring the pot with stupid stuff. I guess because they know that folks will naturally respond?

Lol...may the "best" man win. Jeez. So instead of Willie vs Kenny, we get Blevins vs Cook. What a letdown. I won't be buying tickets.

After some thought, I've decided not to quote Cook's *alleged* email in the video. I will just address his claims thus far in the Cooper case. No need to make it personal. I think if Jo's posting of the email is accurate, it speaks for itself on its own regarding Galen Cook.

I hope the rest of you aren't wondering whether you ever sent Jo a private email venting about another person. We might have to rent the superdome for a mega-whackdown.

I'm not defending Cook -- IF he even sent those emails -- we just don't know, do we? Jo has been known to get her posts confused. You know it's true.Smile
Frankly, I could care less what folks say about me in their private emails (even if I know about it) - though to Blevins defense, it would probably piss me off if someone posted that email on an internet forum. I'm just not sure why people get off on stirring the pot with stupid stuff. I guess because they know that folks will naturally respond?

Lol...may the "best" man win. Jeez. So instead of Willie vs Kenny, we get Blevins vs Cook. What a letdown. I won't be buying tickets.

Mr Shutter - how are the simulations going?

well, I had to get another computer, I ran this one into the ground, it just couldn't handle what I'm throwing at it, so, I have another computer on the way next week. last couple weeks have been a problem testing wise so until the system is running with all the power needed (plus room for more!) we are at a stand still with testing. with the down time I have been able to complete the cockpit itself (see photo)

the main issue was to amount of addons I put in the system, this has overloaded the weak processor and maxed out the capacity of the ram, the cost is not worth it, so in comes a new one Cool we have most of the weather data and I'm now learning how to input it into the new software which is a task in itself (learning curve) I am hoping to have some solid data to release by the end of January, work is starting to slow down and will give me some extra time on the project.

when I first thought of this, I thought it was going to be easy, boy was I wrong Wink getting everything as close as "the real deal" takes time, so baby steps it is if we are to get it right! once the path is complete it will be recorded along with the data running right along side of it showing exactly what is going on. ( altitude,speed, longitude and latitudes and time) once the new system is up and running I will update you on our progress. Cool

Very nice.
So once you get it all mapped out with all the data and have a fair idea of where he jumped (you know.... we don't want much - but by the way what have you done for us lately) Wink we can put together a search mission. Sell tickets. An All inclusive Extreme DB Cooper Search Party Adventure Tour. Kind of like http://www.stormchasing.com/

Re: [smokin99] I'd rather talk about Cooper than Cook and Blevins [In reply to] Can't Post

I would ask if the sim Cooper flight will be done at night, as the real flight was? Also, I know a guy who can write code at 70wpm and has test versions of this software. (He's a senior manager in software testing at Microslave) Might be possible to code-in a command that allows the stairs to be dropped in flight, with resulting changes in flight characteristics. I will be seeing him in person on either Saturday or Sunday.

You should know I have never run MSFS myself. So if none of these ideas is realistic...now you know why. Cool

On the Cook email, etc: I've had some time to cool off, plus this email was supposedly from 2010. If it's for real, just the posting of it is probably enough of an embarrassment for him. This will be my last mention of it. I know he was upset back then because of the History Channel program and the release of the book. He's probably moved on from that anger, so I will do the same. I'm going to do the video, but there will be nothing personal in it regarding Cook. I do have a few problems with his claims, and I will just present those in an organized fashion as much as possible, and leave it at that.

Side Note: When I was at Ariel, I interviewed a fair number of the locals. Many of the ones from Amboy had the opinion that the parachute found there really was Cooper's. This doesn't mean much, of course, but I thought folks here would want to know. I asked many people about it off-camera. At this year's event, I would say 90% of the attendees were locals.

don't buy the Adventure bus just yet Smile we have other goals in the path to be checked, still don't know what we can accomplish with it, but, one never knows.

Yes Robert, the speed, ground speed, altitude, weather effects etc have all been checked, the stairs can be dropped , but only in the locked position. I have put hours and hours into testing each given task to insure it's as close as we can be to "realistic flying" I can change the dates, times and go from daylight to dusk, dawn and evening, even the stars are correct according to Georger.

Re: [RobertMBlevins] Cook's Puppets [In reply to] Can't Post

 
In reply to:
After some thought, I've decided not to quote Cook's *alleged* email in the video. I will just address his claims thus far in the Cooper case. No need to make it personal. I think if Jo's posting of the email is accurate, it speaks for itself on its own regarding Galen Cook.

Unimpressed WHEW! I was trying to prove a point about Puppets, yet you go off and take it all PERSONAL and it is NOT about YOU Blevins.

CrazyIF you think YOU are going to go up against Cook, you are OUT of YOUR mind!

UnsureDon't YOU realize that YOUR story is just as WEAK as Cook's is. Difference between YOU and COOK is that he put YRS of research into the Cooper Mystery.

Cook did NOT find a suspect and then research the story. He has OVER THE YRS developed several suspects, BUT he got a little too carried away with Gossett and the media. Sometimes I think he makes claims out of desperation in his search because his goal has ALWAYS been for yrs - to be the one to solve the case.

UnsureYou try to KNOCK Cook and he will have you for dinner. NO WAY you can go up against him, because your suspect is just as weak as his suspect. I do NOT feel he is still pushing Gossett - you see Cook KNOWS when to back off - you don't!

WinkCook has spent 10's of thousands of dollars over the yrs and even though he gets things wrong - he does know more of the specifics than you have ever been able to digest - YET, it is YOU who keeps posting and making some very ridiculous claims about YOUR knowledge of the case and 1/2 of the time YOU get it wrong.

ShockedIf it was a wrestling match, Blevins YOU would be not just on the mat for the count down, but out of the ring.
