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.
UPDATE: Jan 12, 2017
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 PRWeband 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.
The recent NEW FOUND LINES discovered among our James family reveal descendants of our Anglo James from colonial Virginia who are Choctaw & Chickasaw. A third new found line of our James is also freedmen formerly enslaved by Choctaw. All of these lines relate to the three brothers of our James family who were slave traders operating the Forks of the Road slave market in Natchez, MS. This is complicated history highly underreported. Dr. Alaina E. Roberts will address the history behind our history. You may want to virtually attend via Zoom. ... See MoreSee Less
Perhaps no other symbol has more resonance in African American history than that of "40 acres and a mule"—the lost promise of Black reparations for slavery after the Civil War.In I've Been Here All ...
I knew that Jesse himself, was determined to defend and preserve the property and lands of the indigenous tribes and the common people. From what I have gathered,...Jesse was aided and often harbored by the indigenous people, because he stood for what was right about true "brotherhood"...and this country. A white man that stood by his word, and a warrior that stood up for the American Dream.
Much admiration for the man.
He took on the elite single handedly...although there we're often pistols in both of his hands when it was all goin' down.
WE JAMES ARE PROUDLY DIVERSE . . . This is the family of Elizabeth Lee James, a great-granddaughter of John Oliver James, born in Pulaski Co KY and died in Midland, TX and John's wife Dimples Hite. Among Libby's Aboriginal family Libby's daughter Adina Brown stands beside her. Adina posted "Things Not to Say to Aboriginal People." This translates equally to us in James families of African-American or Native-American descent. Even Frank and Jesse James had an African-American half-brother. ... See MoreSee Less
I'm imagining my grandmother Anna Emalen Knaff clocking into her sales job in 1903 at Marshall Field & Co. department store in the morning. In the late afternoon, she met my grandfather Francis Marion "Frank" James during the tragic Iroquois Theater fire in Chicago as they both tended to the injured, dead, and dying. ... See MoreSee Less
