Bob Ford-Jesse James Photo Hoax Cabal

Bob Ford-Jesse James photo hoax JJSL

In the Bob Ford – Jesse James photo hoax formerly written about HERE, a cabal of hoaxers assembled to perpetrate a case of identity theft, at the expense of factual history and in violation of the identity of the Jesse James family.

Through an ample misapplication of fantasy, imagination, slight of eye magic, chicanery, and purposely deceitful tabloid and broadcast journalism, the cabal sought to beguile, hoodwink, and defraud an unknowledgeable audience for the purpose of promoting fake imagery of Bob Ford and Jesse James and for reaping an imaginary million dollar windfall.

THE CABAL OF HOAXERS

The principal motivating forces behind the Bob Ford-Jesse James photo hoax is without doubt Sandy Mills, Lois Gibson, Dylan Baddour, and the Houston Chronicle. Whether the others who followed were witting or unwitting accomplices, each as writer and publishers had a fiduciary duty to investigate and report the truth of the opposite side of Sandy Mills’ story. They did not. But others did.

Among the responsible writers and publishers, the Canadian Broadcasting Company dropped the story from publication altogether. CNN’s Michael Pearson questioned the image’s authenticity and claim.  Christopher Klein who writes for  A&E’s History rewrote his initial story to present the James family’s objection and argument. Elleda Wilson who picked up the story for the Daily Astorian wrote a followup story when alerted about the hoax.

Without doubt, calling out the hoaxers of the Bob Ford-Jesse James fake photo fraud, will not put an end to the constant flow of images claimed to be Jesse James. Within the period of the present hoax, two more claimed images arrived at Stray Leaves, claiming to be authentic images of Jesse James.

The next stage in the Bob Ford-Jesse James photo hoax has been announced by Burley Auction Gallery. The auction house and its owner Robb Burley have been added to the cabal of hoaxers engaged in this act of identity theft.

In addition, we also are adding to the hoax cabal, the website PRWeb and article author Nikki Thibodeaux. The specific identity of Thibodeaux formerly was unknown until Robb Burley provided an actual photo of her. Thibodeaux is an associate of Robb Burley.

What did Benjamin Franklin Smallwood 1829-1901, Principal Chief of the Choctaw Nation, see in these two women who look so much like one another? He married one and then later the other. Annie Burney of the Chickasaw Nation on the left was Chief Smallwood’s first wife. Mary Abigail “Abbie” James of the Choctaw Nation on the right was his second wife.

The two wives succeeded the Chief’s liaison with Sinai LeFlore. Chief Smallwood was a LeFlore descendant himself. On his maternal side, he was a great-grandson of Jean-Baptist LeFleur, immigrant to Mobile in Spanish Territory, America from Versailles, France. His liaison with Sinai, which produced a son Daniel LeFlore in 1850, was in all likelihood incestuous.

Annie Burney married Chief LeFlore in 1849. The couple’s first child Lorinda “Sis” LeFlore was born on January 9th of that year. Four other children followed. Annie Burney is a second great-granddaughter of Benjamin James, the lawyer and Indian trader, and son of Capt. John James and Dinah Allen. Lorinda LeFlore married Henry Clay James, who is a grandson of the Indian Trader Benjamin James.

The grandfather of Abbie James is the very same Benjamin James. This explains the remarkable likeness of the two women. Smallwood's marriages to the two women must have made for some curious repartee in the Smallwood household.
