Monk, more than a few said you were a man of integrity and wouldn’t lie. Most Obama supporters say the same thing about him. After he was elected the first time, the Blaze was set ablaze by those that couldn’t blieve, that with all the facts presented about this man, fom his birth, college attendance, voting record and his known associates I.e.; Bill Ayers and Jermish Wright to name a few, they still voted for him. Thes folks, like you followers, will fall on a sword for him.
One of your followers called into question my military service (USAF73-79). I posted the account of the crash of a Venezuelan C-130 in the Azores (3 Sept 76). Sixty eight people died, and in the subsequent recover, there were approximately four bags of body parts beyond the 68. He said my account of this crash was “pretty fantastic and entertaining. I really enjoyed it. Was it true? I dunno know, maybe, maybe not.”( eastinfection). Can’t say I ever found it entertaining.
One said “If you weren’t there, how do you know”(SLAPTHELEFT). Oh I don’t know. Maybe because I can read and thankfully not blind (video). I wasn’t there when Obama spoke of the “bitter clingers”‘ told JOE the plumber “when you spread the wealth, it’s good for everybody.” So many more I could site, but I wasn’t there in person. Does that mean it didn’t happen? I heard the audio, watched the video.

The-Monk – this may take several post to get in all in, but I’m going to speak my piece and then leave The Blaze? For those of you who aren’t aware of what has transpired over the past few days, I am posting three links. The first is a claim made by Mr. Monk about Florida Air Flt 90.http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/02/03/shock-dashcam-video-captures-moment-transasia-airways-plane-clipped-bridge-crashed-into-river/ The second is a link
to Wikipedia and details of the crash. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_Florida_Flight_90 And the third is a YouTube video of the actual rescue.
There were nine bodies recovered from the Potomac, reports indicate that this occurred on 15 January, two days after the crash.
Monk, your followers have circled the wagons, and by-in-large, have given you a pss. Some viewed the evidence presented and decided that the evidence confirmed that you indeed fabricated this story.
Most however, have decided, in spite of the evidence presented, that I am a liar. One called me a “punk assed bully” and said I was bullying you.(tireofbeingtired). Unlike you Monk, I never posted any death threats, you know, the one where you told a fellow poster that “if we ever meet, your relatives will be advised of your demise.” I’ll let that person decide whether to confirm that, but I have it saved. One even said this, and I’m paraphrasing “even though I haven’t read all the messages regarding this, all I saw was a lack of evidence to support Monks claim.

Don't leave the Blaze!!! You are awesome and took down the monk in my eyes. Your right nobody will say so , but I will. The Monk had plenty to say about Brian Williams didn't he? I picture the monk with lights and alarms to go off every time a new story hits the blaze, so he can be the first to comment on his words of wisdom. I think ill stick with you. The truth matters! Thank you.

Tired – Bully- a blustering browbeating person; one habitually cruel to others who are weaker. Websters definition, No bluster or browbeating from me, just a tenacious presentation of facts. Monk is by no means a weakling. I’m guessing he and I or the about the same age. If I was a defense attorney, I would hope that I could always have twelve jurors just like you. Even if the prosecution had overwhelming evidence i.e.; a confession, fingerprints, or DNA, all I would have to do is convince the jury that the suspect was treated in a manner that they considered bullying? If , in the course of the trial, the prosecuting attorney was to become ‘animated’ during the presentation of the evidence, or passionate during closing arguments, then you would consider him a bully, and find for the defense.
It was your The-Monk that threatened a fellow poster with death. He told LakeHartSailor that if they were to meet, his next of kin would be getting notification of his demise. I’m sure that doesn’t matter to you. Let me see you post a comment condemning Monk for the threat, but I’m not expecting one.
You implied that my facts were irrelevant because, in your mind, I’m a bully, but that’s okay, I sleep well at night, and know, unlike Monk, I spoke the truth.

Tiredofbeingtire – I’m a liar? I gave definitive proof. A video, the wiki link that Monk himself posted. I’m not bullying anyone, I just have a problem with people that lie. Apparently, it was just easier for you to call me a name rather than look at the evidence. I’m sort of tired of being called names just because I called Monk out on his Stolen Valor rescue story.. Brian Williams fabricated a story about his helicopter being hit by an RPG and he is being excoriated here on the Blaze . He lied, he deserves to be fired. Monk lied but he gets a pass. Kind of hypocritical don’t you think? I know there is nothing I can say that will convince you of the truth, and you really don’t seem to want it. I always thought most Blazers were seekers of the truth. Check my posts, you’ll see that Monk and I were always on the same page, until now. So you know, I have a wonderful life!
TurboCat – I went back to see if I could find info on victim recovery. Besides the survivors, there were 9 bodies pulled from the river. The report was dated Jan 15th, two days after the crash. Bottom line is, you can believe the facts I’ve provided or not, your choice. I certainly didn’t take pleasure in this. Right now, with the possible exception of Obama, I feel like the most hated guy on the Blaze.

Sargeking – the spring at Siver Springs for underwater photography. The Johnyy Weismueller Tarzan movies and the Seahunt series with Lloyd Bridges were also filmed there. Micanopy (Doc Hollywood), the second Jaws film was shot somewhere on the west coast of Florida. Summer Rental with John Candy (St. pete). Passenger 57′ (Wesley Snipes) one of the guys I worked with was an extra in that one. He was a passenger in the ‘training’ scene. Disney had a fuselage at the Studio they used. The Corporate Headquarters was the Sprint Bldg in Altamonte Springs. But who could forget the opening scene in Lethal Weapon 3 when they blew up the bldg.. It was the old Orlando City Hall.

Slap – nothing I posted was or could be deemed disparaging when what I said was true. No I wasn’t there, but I can read, and I’m not blind. I did watch this unfold on TV the day it happened. Pretty much news of the day and replayed many times throughout the day. Like I stated in my first post on this, I saw an episode of Why Planes Crash on the weather channel They covered this crash and the rescue. This was in response to Monks original post of having saved a woman that day. I said I was skeptical, he pushed his narrative. I began researching, and compiled proof that he didn’t save anyone. Further, all the victims were in the plane, but nine. They were recovered on the 15th, two days after the crash. However, since it doesn’t seem to matter to most here on the Blaze and truth isn’t something they care about, I think there’s nothing else I can do.
zerk – the video is clear that the five survivors were pulled out by helicopter. One fell back in and was rescued by Lenny Skutnik. Most of the victims bodies were inside the plane. There were , however, nine bodies pulled from the river, but by all I’ve read, this was on the 15th, two days after the crash. Since it appears, that by in large, most people here aren’t really interested in the truth, and feel like I’m attacking an icon, not much else I can do. They sort of remind me of those that ferociously defend Obama, truth be damned.
 February 5, 2015 at 12:00pm
000degrees – I put this video wth all the other information I gave, it is the actual rescue footage. Five survivors, five rescued and shown being rescued.
 February 5, 2015 at 11:49am
And another Monkhead chimes in.
STOLEN VALOR IS STOLEN VALOR!!
The man lied about saving a life. Didn’t happen, but people like you seem to think that the Monk lying is ok. If that’s the case are you going to give The Liar in Chief a pass. If you don’t, then you are a hypocrite. I don’t like liars, whether they sit in the White House or post on the Blaze. If Monk can prove he rescued, or even if he pulled out anyone and they later died, I will apologize to him and all his followers.
I, myself was a fan, and usually checked out his posts first, but I couldn’t let this slide. Even if he posted the truth, and offered an apology, I would accept it and go on. I don’t imagine one will be forthcoming, and if you think my committ was bullying, I guess I’d rather be accused of that than be a liar.
 February 5, 2015 at 11:31am
To Gonzo and Mystery – let’s just give Obama a pass. He lied, but according to you guys, it’s no big deal. Mystery, you said there was no evidence, just speculation. I guess video of the rescue operation wasn’t good enough. It seems there is a lot of hypocrisy here on the Blaze. How do you defend someone that lied about the police, accusing them of “letting them freeze to death and die”.
I’m sure, instead of doing some self reflection, you will give me two thumbs down, and most likely, a negative response.
 February 5, 2015 at 11:18am
Lake – I didnt realize calling out a liar was going to be a bad thing. The Monkheads are circling the wagons. I stand amazed at the number of people that refused to accept the evidence, have called me a detractor, and have given Monk a pass. It seems he hit you hard with some negative stuff. I especially like the part about the “quarter to call Saul”. I guess Monk is living by the saying ‘tell a lie, tell it long enough, and people will believe it’. These are the same people that, with all the details of how bad Obama was, will ask how stupid someone would have to be to have voted for him. And yet, when its one of there on, will accept everything he says at face value.
AlexS1, what evidence is there that Monk was lying?
All I have seen, I have not gone through all the stories looking for messages regarding this, is a lack of evidence supporting his claim.
That in no way invalidates his claim since he is not claiming he saved a life but that he pulled someone out of the river.
The reason Lake is getting the blowback that he/she is is because, after calling him a liar, he/she proceeded to ridicule him.

Hey Monk! We can start with this list of Victims from Flight 90!!!
This is GREAT, I AM SO EXCITED to help you find out who you rescued from the water, even if they may have died later. I really want to make a HERO out of you. So let’s start with this list and track down where they were fished out of the water. That will help SUBSTANTIATE your story!!! This is great, buddy!!!
I've got to say AlexS1, you make a compelling case. I remember that crash and all the media coverage of that one man who swam out into the icy river and saved that drowning woman. It seems unlikely that if a person in SCUBA gear had also saved someone else that it, too, at some point, would not have made the news. And you'd also think that we would have heard from that person as well, recounting their story of the man in the SCUBA gear that had saved their life. Maybe I should just stay out of it but, as I said before, you do make a compelling case.
It is interesting that I got downvoted but nobody is posting any evidence
SPOT ON Alex!
This monk guy reminds me of this person who called himself, "Truthguy". Over exaggerated lies. How many live people were accounted for? How many died? If the monk fellow had saved someone, who left the area, she would have been listed as missing. I do think this monk is fibbing. Maybe those defending him are actually, him. Only my opinion. :D
 February 5, 2015 at 10:38am
So Galactica, lying doesn’t matter? Guess that makes you a big fan of Obama.
Stolen Valor is Stolen Valor. This “honorable” man took credit for a rescue that never happened, accused police officers of stopping him in a rescue attempt, and further accused them of just letting the survivors die. If you give him a pass on this, then you, like Monk, can claim no moral authority to criticize Obama or anyone being less than truthful. At least look at the facts of how the five survivors were rescued. The video and the wiki leak that Monk himself provided are clear on the events of the day. Some here on the Blaze remind me of Obama sycophants; no matter the evidence presented, those presenting it are just “detractors” and unimportant.
 February 5, 2015 at 10:12am
WOW! Monk, that is an incredible spin on your tale of heroism. Still doesn’t account for the one you saved, the mysterious ‘sixth survivor’. The video doesn’t lie Monk. Im sure this ‘mysterious sixth survivor’ would have come forward and told of a ‘Heroe’ in a wetsuit that saved her. Let’s break it down
1. In your original version, you crossed the bridge and doubled back. Now you say you couldn’t get back across.
2. Original version. “I was escorted off the scene. Now it appears that you were following an ambulance.
3. Original version. You were on the DC side.
I truly feel sorry for you Monk. I taught both my children one important thing about truth and lying ‘Tell the truth, it stays the truth, tell a lie, and it takes on a life of its on’. I’m know all the Monkheads will give you a pass. I won’t. You see, my family is a Law Enforcement family, now I know that’s not popular here on the Blaze, but you impugned the integrity of the officers you said stopped you and accused them of “just letting the survivors die”. That to me is reprehensible. Come clean, tell the truth. I’ll even forgive you.
 February 5, 2015 at 9:30am
So because some ones old they get a pass for lying. ‘Harmless yarn’, are you kidding me. This guy impugned the integrity of the Law Enforcement Officers on the scene, if indeed he was ever there, and accused the authorities of “just letting them freeze to death and die”. No sir east, he doesn’t get a pass from me.
Now whether or not you believe my story, I could give a rats butt!
February 5, 2015 at 9:16am
Two suggestions Monk
1. Get an army of Monkheads, in wetsuits, to patrol the border, to pull these more souls out of the Rio Grande before they drown, or
2. Go to the Mexican side of the River and sell wetsuits.
If anyone reading this might be confused, reference the Asian Airliner crash and read all about the heroic The-Monk. Stolen Valor is Stolen Valor.
 February 5, 2015 at 9:01am
This is indeed true heroism. God Bless you sir.
 February 5, 2015 at 8:56am
Hey Monk, maybe you could photo shop his picture and that could be you in the bed. Just archive it, and twenty years from now you can take credit for what this Heroe did.
February 5, 2015 at 8:47am
And the rest of the story…….
water as I recall. The ‘authorities’ let them freeze to death and die for the most part.
Bad memories from that day… : (
February 5, 2015 at 8:43am
and the rest of the story…….
That was the moment I realized I was living in a police state..
No one else went into the water as I recall. The ‘authorities’ let them all freeze to death and die for the most part.
Bad memories from that day….:(
If any one hears really cares about the truth, go to the Asian Airline story, read the Wikipedia account and watch the video.
