Brevard's Bestest News: Dana Delaney Loyd CONVICTED of making false allegations on her "alternative news" blog


I guess we can call her Dana BALONEY Loyd after a jury convicted her of making a false claim of receiving reports of CSA. No doubt, at least part of the false claim was likely to increase exposure for her alternative news site "Brevard's Best News," but now her news site has turned into a site defending her actions. She even made her own GoFundMe page to beg for help after getting arrested. Maybe "Safe Kids International"should reconsider their support of this convicted criminal.

Website editor found guilty of falsely reporting child abuse in Brevard County
by: Mark Boxley Updated: Apr 2, 2017 - 4:51 PM

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. - A Brevard County website editor is facing up to five years in prison after being found guilty of falsely accusing a man of sexually abusing his elementary school-aged daughter.

According to the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office, Dana Loyd, 44, reported the abuse while claiming to be a substitute teacher at Quest Elementary School named Theresa Smith.

She called the Florida Department of Children and Families Hotline on April 29, 2015 and told authorities that the girl had confided in her about the abuse.

Staff at Quest Elementary School, though, told investigators that there had not been a substitute teacher by that name the day the caller said the girl had told her about the abuse, the sheriff’s office said.

Deputies were able to match the phone number used to call the hotline to Loyd, who was also found to be “chief editor” of the website brevardsbestnews.com.

The site, which was still active Sunday, posted two articles titled “Please Help Fight for Justice!!!” and “Blood in the Streets?”  Both named the girl’s father.

The second article also identified the girl by name, the sheriff’s office said.

“Additionally, it was learned that Loyd was allegedly contacting the father’s employment and other organizations where he was volunteering, advising he was a child molester,” the BCSO said in a Facebook post. “The investigation determined that the allegations of the reported abuse were unsubstantiated.”

Loyd admitted she had called the DCF hotline and the father’s employer and others as “harassment,” investigators said.

A jury found Loyd guilty of filing a false report of child abuse on Thursday.

She will be sentenced at a later date, the sheriff’s office said.

“I am extremely proud of everyone involved in the investigation and subsequent prosecution, as the investigation, arrest and conviction sends a very strong message to anyone who falsely reports crime in our community,” Sheriff Wayne Ivey wrote in the BCSO Facebook post.

Apparently Dana Loyd is also playing the Alex Jones Infowars card here.

http://volusiaexposed.com/highprofile/defenseofdanadelaney5.html

Dana Loyd's staff is like a Florida edition of Infowars and Paul Joseph Watson. These people use the same tactics that's getting Infowars the Youtube Boycott.

Damn You mean Dana Loyd Plagiarized Paul Joseph Watson!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1GQehNcZZw

I'm Shocked Oncefallen mainly because I didn't even know there was another Alex Jones Wannabe at play here and she's doing the Florida edition of Infowars. Don't get me wrong Oncefallen I once wanted to join a vigilante (Both anti drug and anti rapist groups similar to Perverted Justice, Creep Catchers and Davao Death Squad though) But once I saw your articles of Patrick Drum, Edgar Welch and others I realized that like this end up more mentally damaged than even the original victims. Once I saw articles of Disabled people (I baby sit these people) having their civil rights violated I always wondered why are Vigilantes more damaged than abuse victims and original abusers combined. I was never able to confirm my arguments though but I know its there.

I saw the manifesto from Dana Loyd's Allies and her people are playing the low budget version of Infowars. I'm Shocked there was not another Edgar Welch going after Dana Loyd's targets here given the way things are today. You simply do a Youtube Rant show and accuse somebody of shit and then one of the fans of the Youtube talk host will get a gun to the accused location exactly like the Comet Ping pong fiasco.

Bob Tacto said...

Come on I don't believe Dana Loyd will be sentenced longer than a few months here. I'm willing to place a huge bet that Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson will hire Dana Loyd to push the next conspiracy here and its supposed to be bigger than Pizzagate.

I seen Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson push the same exact shit for the youtube edition of Infowars and they got away with it because they are politically protected.

Damn here is an update of the David Haiman murder

When David Alexander Haiman was found dead last June in rural Itasca County, Kayleene Danielle Greniger told investigators that her boyfriend killed the 20-year-old man in retaliation for a sexual assault.

She stated at the time that Joseph Christen Thoresen lured Haiman to the Ball Club area and stabbed him numerous times — ignoring her pleas to stop the assault — before beheading the victim with a machete.


But when Greniger, 23, appeared in State District Court for a plea hearing in February, Thoresen’s attorneys noted, her story had changed drastically.

In pleading guilty to intentional second-degree murder, Greniger admitted that both she and Thoresen had taken part in the stabbing. And, perhaps most significantly, according to the attorneys, Greniger said she was the one who used the machete to decapitate Haiman.

“In one case, the machete is placed in the hands of Mr. Thoresen, and in another case, the machete is squarely in the hands of Kayleene Greniger,” wrote Steven Bergeson, a public defender representing Thoresen, in a recent brief.

That issue was one of several cited by Thoresen’s attorneys in seeking the dismissal of a four-count indictment charging him with Haiman’s death.

Thoresen, 36, was indicted by a grand jury in October on two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of second-degree murder. If convicted of premeditated murder, he would face a mandatory life sentence in prison.

A two-week trial is set to begin Aug. 14, with Greniger agreeing to testify as part of a plea agreement reached with the Itasca County attorney’s office in February.


But Bergeson contended recently to 9th Judicial District Judge Korey Wahwassuck that Thoresen can no longer receive a fair trial, given the substantial change in his co-defendant’s testimony since the indictment was handed down.

“It would be fundamentally unfair to permit the (state) to proceed with the inconsistent theories that Mr. Thoresen was the sole stabber and machete-wielding individual before the grand jury,” Bergeson wrote in the brief, “and that Kayleene Greniger swung the machete and cut off Mr. Haiman’s head, during trial.”

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/04/16/opinion/anatomy-of-a-lynching.html?_r=0

Now India has a lynching problem also Pakistan has a lynching issue

https://scroll.in/article/834783/pakistan-lynching-when-innocent-until-proven-guilty-is-a-dangerous-argument

A mob lynched 23-year-old Mashal Khan at a university campus in Mardan, in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, on Thursday. They shot him, threw him down from his second-floor dormitory and beat him with wooden planks until his skull was bashed in. The police intervened only to stop the mob from setting his corpse on fire. The mob lynched him because he was suspected of committing blasphemy.

Instead of looking into the violent murder that took place on campus grounds the day before, the administration at Mardan University issued a notice in which officials announced that they would investigate three students, including Mashal, for their alleged blasphemy and that they would be suspended until further notice. A university official said Khan’s inclusion in the notice was a “clerical error”.

Condemnations started thick and fast. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that he was “very sad” and that “the state will not allow anyone to take the law into their own hands.”

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf chief Imran Khan said “the law of the jungle” must not be allowed to continue. The familiar cabal of human rights activists, non-governmental organisations, and commentators repeated calls to reform and repeal Pakistan’s blasphemy law, which carries the death sentence for as little as an insinuation of disrespect towards the Quran or the Prophet Muhammad.

Dangerous defence
A natural question that many asked after the lynching was “what did Mashal do?” and “did he actually do it?” Many stuck to the idea that Mashal was innocent because he did not write what he was accused of writing. Mashal was accused of having spoken in favour of the Ahmadi sect – a regular target of blasphemy accusations – and there were rumours of him posting blasphemous content on social media. One report suggested a fake account with his name and picture was posting the blasphemous content, perhaps to frame him.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4409736/Grieving-dad-poses-14-year-old-entrap-paedophiles.html

Wow Now a UK father runs Dark Justice to avenge his son's death.

A grieving father has revealed how he poses as a 14-year-old girl online to trap sex offenders, after vowing to seek vengeance on the predators who targeted his late son.
In 2015, David Poole's son Brandon, 16, accidentally choked to death at a party, and before he passed away he confided in his dad that older men had targeted him and tried to groom him online.
As a way to cope with his grief, David, 38, from Hereford - who is also a father to Charlie, five, and Madison, eight, has spent the last 18 months posing as Sammie-Jo to entrap paedophiles online, capturing them on camera when they turn up expecting to meet a 14-year-old girl.
'There was nothing I could do to help Brandon, but if I could help even one other teenager from being harmed by these predators, I'd feel my life had been worth living,' David told FEMAIL. 'Once I knew about what was going on, I couldn't just turn a blind eye.'
And he insists that the job he does is appreciated by the police - despite chiefs regularly calling for people not to take the law into their own hands - saying: 'They obviously can't encourage it but I think they're quite grateful for my assistance.'

After a brief phone conversation between Kirstie and Rignall with Kirstie pretending to be Sammie-Jo, the meeting was arranged.
But when Rignall, 46, arrived at Hereford station, there was no 14-year-old girl waiting for him. Instead, he was met by a very angry David and his camera man, who live streamed the confrontation on social media.
'What was really shocking about this bloke,' explains David, 'was that he had a bag of sex aids as well as ropes and a tarpaulin in his car. I was left wondering if he was intending to kill the two girls.
'He's already abducted, imprisoned and sexually abused a child. Maybe, this time, he was planning to go one step further. It makes me feel sick thinking about it.'

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4418934/Alex-Jones-s-lawyer-says-s-just-playing-character.html

Update Alex Jones is sued for a child custody dispute the same guy who pushed Pizzagate is sued by in the family.

The Alex Jones who told his legions of "Infowars" listeners that bogus stories about the U.S. government being behind the 9/11 attacks and about Hillary Clinton operating a pedophile ring out of a Washington D.C. pizza joint is really "a performance artist."

That's according to Jones' own lawyer — not the mainstream media that the right-wing radio jock derides as "fake news."

"He's playing a character" and is nothing like his online persona, attorney Randall Wilhite reportedly insisted in a Texas courtroom at a pre-trial hearing ahead of the right wing radio jock's custody battle with ex-wife Kelly Jones.


Alex Jones
Judging Jones by his Infowars performances would be like judging Jack Nicholson by his depiction of the Joker on "Batman," Wilhite told state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo last week, the Austin American-Statesman reported.

Kelly Jones is seeking sole or joint custody of her three children, ages 14, 12 and 9, with her ex-husband, an ardent supporter of President Trump who broadcasts from his Austin home.

"He's not a stable person," she reportedly told the court. "He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin's neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped."

"I'm concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress," she added, referring to Jones' recent comments about Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California. "He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast."

There was no immediate response to Kelly Jones' claims from Jones, 43, who is also known for pushing other widely discredited claims like the moon landing was faked and the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was staged.

Meanwhile, lawyers for the warring Joneses began seating a jury in the Travis County courthouse for what's expected to be a contentious two-week hearing, court officials confirmed.

The couple divorced in 2015. Jones reportedly pays his ex-wife $43,000 per month, according to the Austin paper.

Damn Alex Jones is way crazier than Dan Loyd. Now the kingpin of Pizzagate is on trial over a child custody case.

Then, Jones began testifying in his child-custody trial, only to learn that the best way to keep video tapes of his craziness away from the custody jury was to admit that his TV persona is really just him “playing a character”. Ouch.

Let’s back up for a minute. In case anyone out there isn’t familiar with Alex Jones, he’s the chief officer over at InfoWars.com – a news website on which Jones hosts a conspiracy theory program. Jones is famous for his absurd claims that the Sandy Hook shooting and moon landings were staged, the Clintons are possessed by demons, the 9/11 and Oklahoma City attacks were perpetrated by the U.S. government, and of course, that Pizzagate is a real thing. Compared to Jones, Tomi Lahren looks like Edward R. Murrow, and yet, thousands of lemmings who fancy themselves arch conservatives follow InfoWars with scary zealotry.

“It is the Philippine National Police doing it. This killing machine must be buried six feet under the ground,” the retired intelligence officer was quoted as saying.
The active commander, meanwhile, revealed that police were coordinating with local officials to unplug security cameras and switch off street lamps during their well-planned “buy-busts” executions of targets drawn from a list of drug suspects. He said the team of PNP operatives would plant guns and drugs at the crime scene after killing the target.
Reuters added that, according to the commander, most drug suspects in his precinct were executed by rookie cops who “are either eager for the experience or nominated by their superiors” as “baptism by fire.”
“There is no such thing as a legitimate buy-bust … The dealers know the cops and won’t sell to them,” the commander was quoted as saying.
Police doing buy busts usually do not do it themselves but use civilian “assets” or informants.
“We have to plant evidence for the legality of the operation. We are ordered to do these operations, so we have to protect ourselves,” he added.
In planting the evidence, the commander said police officers were told by PNP crime scene investigators last year to “place the guns at a slight distance from the suspects, rather than in their hands, to make things more realistic.”

Alex Jones is more damaged than Bill O'Reilly! and sadly thats true

O’Reilly out of a job for now, but he’s better off than Alex Jones

ORDER REPRINT OF THIS STORY
Bill O’Reilly is gone for now.

But Austin-based online show host Alex Jones might have damaged his own career forever.

Some of O’Reilly’s less-disgusted fans may forgive him over five sexual harassment settlements, capping a career of loutish, self-indulgent behavior that inspired Stephen Colbert’s satirical “Colbert Report.”


But at $55 a year, Jones’ pay-video viewers are less likely to forgive being fooled after his lawyer told a custody hearing Jones is a “performance artist” and “playing a character.”

“The number one benefit for a host is being somebody real to viewers, somebody who’s like ‘what you see is what you get,’ ” said Aaron Chimbel, an associate professor in the Bob Schieffer College of Communication at Texas Christian University.

“If you say, ‘I’m the person who’s telling you the truth,’ and then say, ‘Oh, that’s not really me’ — you lose credibility.”

Jones, 43, is an Austin character who started with a blustery community cable TV show about a global New World Order conspiracy. He has taken to Facebook and video this week to claim that he really believes what he says, just delivers it with drama, humor and satire.

The damage was done. His own attorney, Randall Wilhite, said judging Jones by his show is like judging Jack Nicholson for playing the Joker in “Batman.”

HE’S PLAYING A CHARACTER. HE IS A PERFORMANCE ARTIST.
Lawyer Randall Wilhite on his own client, Alex Jones, at a pre-trial hearing for a custody trial

I’ve considered Jones only an entertainer for a long time. But in a new book about the 2016 election, President Donald Trump’s conspiracy-loving pal Roger Stone called Jones the campaign’s “secret weapon.”

If anyone took Jones seriously, they probably won’t after a week of headlines such as “Jones says persona not a trick” (Reuters) or “Is Alex Jones an extreme conspiracy theorist or a giant troll?” (Los Angeles Times).

On the stand this week, Jones has talked himself deeper into pop-culture oblivion, saying he couldn’t remember details about his children because “I had a big bowl of chili for lunch” and that he smokes marijuana to “monitor its strength.”

O’Reilly, to his good fortune, is on a now-extended vacation.

O’Reilly’s departure from Fox News shows that “even if you appeal to a demographic that is anti-PC, or frustrated with it, you can only go so far,” Chimbel said.

6.6 million viewers monthly watch Alex Jones’ videos or read his website.
It’s one thing to breach ethics, like former “NBC Nightly News” anchor Brian Williams, and another to cost your company $13 million in sexual harassment lawsuits.

“A corporation has to take that seriously,” Chimbel said: “In his mind, he may be just from a different time. But an employer has to look at risk.”

Broadcaster Alex Jones tears up, says ex-wife's lawyer has 'no decency, zero'

Man opens fire at DC pizzeria over fake news story
And don’t read anything political into their demise. Another Jones will emerge for conspiracy hobbyists, and Fox has plenty of new O’Reillys.

On with the show.

http://www.politicsweb.co.za/news-and-analysis/shelley-garland-hoax-huffpost-sa-wreaks-its-reveng

Now the Huffington Post has gotten an Alex Jones type "Performance artist"


The Huffington Post’s recent publication of a blog post proposing stripping white men of their right to vote sparked widespread anger across social media. The editors initially defended the piece, titled “Could It be Time to Deny White Men the Franchise?” They even crowed about how much traffic it was getting and mocked readers for complaining, before suddenly reversing their decision and deleting the post over the weekend.

In the controversial piece, a South African woman named Shelley Garland, a self-described “activist and feminist working on ways to smash the patriarchy” had suggested it was “time to wrestle control of the world back from white males, and the first step will be a temporary restriction of the franchise to them.”

Garland argued: “If white men no longer had the vote, the progressive cause would be strengthened. It would not be necessary to deny white men indefinitely–the denial of the vote to white men for 20 years (just less than a generation) would go some way to seeing a decline in the influence of reactionary and neo-liberal ideology in the world.”

She blamed white men for the Brexit outcome in the United Kingdom and the election of Donald Trump.

Then, following the extensive backlash, Huffington Post deleted the article, replacing it with a meek apology and a claim that they were unable to confirm that Shelley Garland was a real person. They even had to hilariously clarify that they are in favor of universal voting enfranchisement.

A person claiming to be Shelley Garland has since reached out to Cliff Central, with evidence of the original pitch email she had sent to Huffington Post. “Shelley” says she received the website’s content guidelines, which her piece certainly does not adhere to despite the site’s decision to post it.

Further documentation from “Shelley” elaborates on how she conducted the ruse armed with a heavily photoshopped image taken from the Internet and phrases employed by the “less sensible left.” The hoaxster says that her editors at Huffington Post did not correct any of the false claims, factual errors and logical fallacies she purposely embedded in the piece, and accepted it without question.

A further indictment on the Huffington Post is the fact that its editor, Verashni Pillay, then took it upon herself to defend the total garbage that I had written. Although Ms Pillay claims that her website does not necessarily agree with what I said, it is unlikely that she would publish a piece with the same sentiments but aimed at a different race group written by someone ostensibly from the other side of the political spectrum.

It is highly doubtful that she would publish a piece saying perhaps apartheid wasn’t that bad, or defending Donald Trump’s ban on people of certain nationalities entering the United States, and rightly so. Pieces defending apartheid or the ‘Muslim ban’ would be hurtful claptrap. What we have seen is the South African equivalent of the Sokal Affair, where something will be published, even if it’s ‘liberally salted with nonsense if (a) it sounded good and (b) it flattered the editors’ ideological preconceptions’. My article does not meet criteria a, but it certainly meets criteria b.
It’s worth asking whether Huffington Post would have stood by the content of the inflammatory article if Shelley Garland were a real person.

ALex Jones is sued for falsely accusing Chobani Yogurt for hiring rapists.

Yogurt giant Chobani is suing controversial radio host Alex Jones of InfoWars, saying that a fabricated story published on the website earlier this month falsely claimed Chobani owner Hamdi Ulukaya and the company of "importing migrant rapists."
Greek yogurt giant Chobani filed a lawsuit Monday against right-wing radio host Alex Jones, accusing the conspiracy theorist of publishing false information about the company.
Chobani says that Jones and his InfoWars website posted fabricated stories earlier this month that linked Chobani owner Hamdi Ulukaya and the company to a sexual assault case involving refugee children. The company filed the lawsuit in Idaho District Court in Twin Falls, where it operates the largest yogurt plant in the world.

"(Jones) is no stranger to spurious statements. He has claimed that the U.S. government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks and the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut," Chobani's attorneys wrote. "Mr. Jones has now taken aim at Chobani and the Twin Falls community."
The complaint says InfoWars released a video on April 11 describing Chobani's practice of hiring refugees and a sexual assault case that did not involve the yogurt company.

During the video, an Info Wars reporter republished statements that claimed the Chobani plant brought crime and tuberculosis since it opened the plant five years ago while also pointing out previous reports of its willingness to hire refugees in Twin Falls.

The video was promoted using the headline "Idaho Yogurt Maker Caught Important Migrant Rapists," even though the lawsuit points out that InfoWars didn't mention or prove that statement in the report. The story was tweeted out by Jones and other outlets.
InfoWars didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

The report was critical of Ulukaya's support of hiring refugees while reporters then reacted to a separate issue involving three Twin Falls refugee boys who admitted to charges involved in the assault of a 5-year-old girl at an apartment complex.
The 2016 assault sparked months of turmoil in Twin Falls after the story about the incident was spun by far-right blogs and anti-immigration groups into accounts that exaggerated and falsified many of the details.




Damn this update is insane
