Afghanistan is finally set to outlaw the sick 'bacha bazi' practice that sees young boys dressed up as women and sexually abused.

Heavy penalties are set to be laid out for the first time in a landmark move against the depraved act, officials in Kabul said.

It comes after it was revealed last year how the Taliban were exploiting rampant bacha bazi in police ranks to mount deadly insider attacks, exposing a hidden epidemic of kidnapping of young boys for institutionalised sexual slavery.

The revelations intensified longstanding demands by campaigners for Kabul to enact an incisive legal provision to curb bacha bazi - literally 'boy play' - which has seen a striking resurgence in post-Taliban Afghanistan.

A raft of punishments will now be listed in Afghanistan's revised penal code - from up to seven years in jail for sexual assault to capital punishment for 'aggravated cases' such as violating more than one boy.

'There is an entire chapter on criminalising the practice (bacha bazi) in the new penal code,' Nader Nadery, a senior advisor to President Ashraf Ghani, told AFP.

'The code is expected to be adopted any time this month. This is going to be a significant step towards stopping this ugly practice.'

A draft of the chapter seen by AFP, titled 'Driving children towards moral corruption', also states that bacha bazi victims cannot be prosecuted, a significant caveat in a nation where sex assault victims often face punishment.

Afghanistan's criminal law previously only prohibited pederasty and sex outside of marriage, which rights campaigners said did not sufficiently address the problem of bacha bazi.

'This chapter clearly defines bacha bazi as a crime, leaving no room for ambiguity,' Ghani's legal advisor Nasrullah Stanekzai told AFP, waving printed copies of the revised penal code in his hand.

Aside from police commanders, warlords, politicians and other members of the Afghan elite often keep 'bachas' as a symbol of authority and affluence.

The young boys, sometimes dressed effeminately with makeup and bells on their feet, can be used as dancers at private parties and are often sexually exploited.

AFP's investigation found that the Taliban were using the boys - keen on revenge and easy prey for recruitment - to infiltrate security ranks and mount crippling insider attacks on police in southern Afghanistan. The insurgents deny the claim.

Before the penal code, activists pushed for years for special legislation on bacha bazi, with scant hope of getting it through parliament as they suspect the practice is prevalent among lawmakers themselves.

'I have received calls from MPs that say they will never let a bacha bazi law pass in parliament,' said Soraya Sobhrang from the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission. 'This is a battle to save 21st century slaves.'

tania cadogan said...

The penal code is likely to be passed by presidential decree during the ongoing parliamentary recess. But Sobhrang worries that some lawmakers may try to water it down when it is later subjected to a parliamentary review.

Afghanistan has a poor record of enforcing similar provisions, including a law to eliminate violence against women and another to ban the recruitment of child soldiers, especially when the perpetrators are powerful.

'Explicit criminalisation in law of the heinous practice of bacha bazi is commendable, but implementation of laws in Afghanistan has been questionable,' the All Survivors Project, a global fact-finding effort into sexual violence against males in conflict zones, told AFP.

'How is the government planning to monitor, investigate and hold accountable those responsible for abusing boys under this new legal provision?'

As Afghanistan's conflict escalates, critics have said there appears to be no will to act against abusive security officials who are seen as the lesser of two evils in the fight against insurgent groups.

Western officials have privately conceded to AFP that some Afghan commanders accused of bacha bazi are 'too strategic to be removed' from their posts.

But growing public scrutiny of the practice, once shrouded in shame and silence, is forcing authorities to act in some areas.

Earlier this month, the government sacked Shah Mirza Panjsheri, police chief of the volatile Dasht-e-Archi district in northern Kunduz province, after a video of his 'bacha bazi party' surfaced on social media.

'He was kidnapping young, beautiful boys and forcing them to dance in bacha bazi gatherings,' a Kunduz government spokesman told AFP.

'When we heard about this we dismissed him immediately,' he said, adding that he was the first high-ranking police official in Kunduz to be sacked for this practice.

Afghanistan is set to criminalise the practice of 'bacha bazi', sexual exploitation of boys, with a slew of stringent punishments laid out for the first time in a revised penal code.

The move comes after an AFP report last year found the Taliban are exploiting the centuries-old practice, one of the most egregious violations of human rights in the country, to mount deadly insider attacks in the volatile south.

Here are some key answers about bacha bazi.

What is it?

Powerful warlords, commanders, politicians and other members of the elite often keep 'bachas' as a symbol of authority and affluence.

Bachas, sometimes dressed as women, are often sexually exploited. They can also be used as dancers at private parties.

Bacha bazi is not widely seen as homosexual behaviour - popularly demonised as a deviant sexual act, prohibited in Islam - and is largely accepted as a cultural practice.

How common is it?

'Women are for child-rearing, boys are for pleasure' is a common saying across many parts of Afghanistan.

The ancient custom, banned under the Taliban's 1996-2001 rule, has seen a resurgence in recent years. It is said to be widespread across southern and eastern Afghanistan's rural Pashtun heartland, and with ethnic Tajiks across the northern countryside.

How has it been allowed to flourish?

Tight gender segregation in Afghan society and lack of contact with women have contributed to the spread of bacha bazi, rights groups say.

Several other factors such as an absence of the rule of law, corruption, limited access to justice, illiteracy, poverty, insecurity, and the existence of armed groups have also helped the practice spread, the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) said in a report in 2014.

AIHRC points out that Afghanistan's criminal law prohibits rape and pederasty, but so far there are no clear provisions on bacha bazi.

'There is a gap and ambiguity in the laws of Afghanistan regarding bacha bazi and the existing laws do not address the problem sufficiently,' the report said.

It is this gap which the government hopes the revised penal code will address.

tania cadogan said...

cont.

But the government has a poor track record of implementing such measures, as many of the perpetrators have connections with the security organs and by using power and giving bribes they get exempted from punishment.

Where do the boys come from? And what happens to them afterwards?

Bachas are typically aged between 10 and 18. Many of them are kidnapped and sometimes desperate poverty drives their families to sell them to abusers.

'The victims of bacha bazi suffer from serious psychological trauma as they often get raped,' AIHRC's report said.

'Such victims suffer from stress and a sort of distrust, hopelessness and pessimistic feeling. Bacha bazi results in fear among the children and a feeling of revenge and hostility develop in their mind.'

In turn, many adolescent victims are said to grow up to have boy lovers of their own, repeating the cycle of abuse.

'In the absence of any services to recover or rehabilitate boys who are caught in this horrendous abuse, it's hard to know what happens to these children,' said Charu Lata Hogg, a London-based fellow at Chatham House, a think tank.

'We have heard anecdotal reports that many grow up to keep their own bachas, perpetuating the revolving door of abuse.'

How is bacha bazi impacting Afghan security?

Bacha bazi is having a detrimental bearing on the perpetual state of conflict in Afghanistan, helping the Taliban to infiltrate security ranks in provinces such as Uruzgan, officials say.

The abusive practice in security ranks also undermines support for NATO-trained Afghan forces.

'To date, the US has provided over $60 billion in assistance to the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF), including nearly $500 million to the Afghan Local Police,' the US Congress said in 2015.

'Predatory sexual behaviour by Afghan soldiers and police could undermine US and Afghan public support for the ANDSF, and put our enormous investment at risk.'

The practice also continues to embolden the Taliban's desire to reassert sharia law in Afghanistan and is fuelling their insurgency.

'Such wild abuses of the predatory mujahideen forces in the early 1990s drove the popularity of the austere Taliban, helping them sweep to power across most of the country. Similar behaviour of the government forces after 2001 is also helping to inspire the insurgency,' a Western official in Kabul told AFP.

Anybody here?

Bingo said...

Hey Kate! I am here! I hope everyone else except LOL LOL (ha!)will come over, but not sure how to let them know??

DW said...

Hi, Kate. DW here. I'm assuming others will follow. Thanks for posting that creepy sermon about God sparing Davey from being the Sandy Hook killer and then saying he wanted to harm people when he didn't get his way. A psychologist will have a field day with those statements.

As for whether or not this was a gang crime, it was. And it was an orchestrated crime. "Officers from the department's gang and violent crime units arrested Taylor, with help from U.S. Marshals. Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry said at a press conference Monday."
--------------------------------
"Authorities said the men referred to themselves as "The Kilt Gang."
----------------------
"Back in 2009, they called themselves the FAM Gang.

It was a gang comprising at least a dozen teens living on the city's North and Northwest sides. Police noted at the time that one of the ways to enter the gang – the initials stood for Forever After Money, but it also referred to FAMily Untouchable — was to rob someone.

Two of its members back then? A then-14-year-old kid named Jalen “Lil Watt” Watson and a teenager named Diano “D-Loc” Gordon, who was 17 years old and had the words "FAM GANG" tattooed on his forearms."

DW said...

I really believe Davey is cracking. His latest posts are full of rage. He hopes Weston was too young to know anything or remember anything but he is wrong. I recently saw a 48 Hours about a stepdad who killed his wife. The wife's 1 1/2 year old daughter was there. She was able to testify later. She at first referred to the killer as "the monster" but was later able to say it was "daddy". She had been living with the stepdad for years after the murder. She is in her 20's today and still remembers details from that morning. Sorry, Davey.

Btw, there was a friend of Davey's that had posted on FB right after the murder that Davey told him that when he got home, Weston was upstairs in his crib, awake and crying. I can no longer find the post but when Davey is on the stand being grilled by the defense attorneys, he will have to actually give a detailed version of what happened.

DW said...

I am beginning to wonder if Davey was the one who broke into Alison Becker's? I would think Davey would have kept himself as clean as possible in all of this, but the dark-colored SUV that was seen speeding down Davey's street and then seen speeding away a few minutes later, was seen around 6am. The robbery took place at 5:36am, as documented by surveillance video. Davey was unusually late for the gym that day and doesn't say why he was late - only that he got up around 4:30am and spent some time in the Word and then had to grab his gym stuff on the way out. The fact that Davey left at 6:11am (and we can assume this time was corroborated by surveillance video of Davey's neighbor).

Why wouldn't LE have put in the APC or discussed at the presser that there was a Sebring seen driving down Davey's street at ____am? They mention the Sebring being around the corner to pick LT up at 7:10-7:11am but no mention of the Sebring earlier? And isn't it convenient that Davey left the gym at 7:10am, precisely the time the suspects were leaving his neighborhood.

Kate said...

Awesome! Bobcat left a comment under my video and left a link here, so hopefully that will help people find their way. Thanks Bobcat!

DW, thanks for watching. The part about the Sandy Hook reference is, Davey begins with how messed up and demented an individual has to be in order to pull that off, but then goes onto say God told him he was lucky it wasn't him. Davey messes his wording up here. If Davey thinks the killer is demented and messed up, then God says you were lucky it wasn't you, basically it's saying God sees how messed up Davey is and how he has the potential to kill anyone, it's only by God's grace that Davey didn't. Essentially, Davey and any killer, are one in the same. That's how I interpreted that. In so many of his sermons he almost gives a warning that he will strike one day. He just won't get his hands dirty, which brings the gang in. Davey worked and was friendly with a lot more inner city folk than he gives credit to. What was your interpretation? Was it along the same lines for you all?

I am anxiously awaiting the trial. I am especially interested in the confession and how long the interrogation took. I smell a false confession that was given after hours of being interrogated and pressured, but could be wrong on that. That isn't to say these 3 didn't go in and terrorize and murder Amanda, only to say that the confession may be a subject of interest and may not end up being used in court, depending on how it was ultimately given. But, I still think Davey Blackburn, at the very least, knew what was going to happen and had a hand in it. Just my opinion.



DW said...

Just read my post above and realized I left off mid-sentence. The fact that davey left his house at 6:11am, right after the SUV was speeding away, and the fact that there is no mention from the CI about LT throwing a computer bag in the car, makes me wonder if Davey had all of the goods and then unloaded them on the dark-colored SUV?

And why would LE show surveillance video from inside Jacola's but not from inside Alison Becker's? LE admits that they see a single burglar enter the house and shut the alarm off. Is the intruder wearing different clothes than LT or does the intruder not fit LT's physical appearance?

DW said...

Kate,

Maybe you can post a link to this blog comment section at your latest video? I realize that Davey and Brenda will follow as well, but I hate to lose the Resonate Insider, and those newer posters that may not think to come here.

Btw, thanks for ruining Davey's honeymoon! He just can't quit us.

DW said...

Bobcat was one step ahead of me!

Kate said...

I will. Bobcat left a link under another poster's post, but I'll leave a link and pin it so it stays at the top and hopefully they can find us. BOLO trolls, I'm sure they will follow.

Remember how long it took le to release any surveillance footage? Any still shots of the suspect(s)? In the original presser, Converse got up to speak and he was extremely nervous, said they should be releasing a pic that day. Then, (I forget his name) got up and he said no pics will be released today. The only pic the public got was the picture of Mel, the dog. Bizarre delivery there as well. So while these three were roaming the streets for over a week, no pics were released to the public to BOLO for. It made no sense whatsoever. The truth lies within those neighborhood and business surveillance tapes as well as Davey Blackburn's phone and laptop.

flightfulbird said...

flightfulbird is here - I am so glad for the latest video with the link to this thread - and that people are finding their way over here thanks to the links Kate and Bobcat posted.

I am particularly glad that the story about Amanda knocking Davey's precious grill off of the deck made it into the video. This guy was more angry and bitter about his sweet, apologetic wife denting his grill than he is toward the guys who allegedly assaulted, beat and shot his wife three times. There is another clip about when she took a Caramello off of the counter top that he was saving for himself and ate it - he went on and on about that as well.

Davey HATED her. It is so obvious. With or without Kristi in the picture, there was motive. It's plastered all over his appearances - so apparent just how bad and strained their relationship was. He got married, had his wings clipped, had to be home at a certain time, had to quit watching porn - and after seven "perfect" years, Amanda was gone.

-----
Random thoughts -

Davey might have known that Alison Becker would be away at that time of morning - he might have even had a key - someone in the other thread wrote that a pastor would be a likely person for a homeowner to give a key. Davey was doing something on the morning of November 10th between 4:30am and 6:10am besides just spending time in reading the Bible and praying for protection for Amanda and Evie and grabbing his gym clothes/gym bag and heading out the door.

IMPD said there was no gang activity connected with this case - yet In one of his appearances Davey said his wife was murdered as a result of gang violence in the city (and he half-smiled as he said it).

I too believe that if Davey wasn't directly involved in Amanda's beating, assault and shooting, he absolutely knew it was going to happen. Maybe Amanda's teeth were knocked out in a fight or struggle on Sunday night or Monday morning already - hence no closeup pictures or selfies of Amanda and Amber cruising around at Traders Point and shopping and drinking their favorite Starbucks drinks on Monday.

Yeah and there was no good picture of a suspect, no real push for everyone to be watching out for someone/ suspects on the loose- and there is still the glaring fact that there's no way IMPD could have cleared Davey of any involvement (murder for hire) in the timeframe that they did - IMPD hadn't even arrested anyone before they cleared Davey. Being seen on camera at the gym means nothing - except that he wasn't in the house at a certain time. Kate's third video has the clip near the end with Jeanine Pirro discussing this.

Thanks again to Bobcat and Kate for providing this link for us to continue the discussion - I too think Davey is going to crack sooner rather than later. And I still wonder if he would rather die in a mysterious accident than be grilled by attorneys in a trial where he will have to keep his story/stories straight.

Kate said...

Thanks Flightfulbird, I'm glad I was able to squeeze that last video link up on comments last night before it closed, made it easier to find you all. Bobcat saved the day with the link, thanks again Bobcat.

The grill story had to make the cut and the everyday viewer probably won't gain much by viewing it, unless they know the entire story. With all of Davey's conversations with God, all his, "Hey Davey?......" moments, he has yet to publicly declare that he had a "hey davey" moment with God about Amanda and his accountability. The grill, never once does he mention any accountability or responsibility in his disgusting story. He just speaks to it being all of Amanda's fault. I have a few materialistic things I hold dear, if someone moves it or uses it, I double back to make sure it was put back where it belongs, Davey waited an entire day and quite frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't tip that grill over the edge on his own.

Where was Amanda's family when all of these fights were breaking out? They had to have known, Davey has too big of a mouth and Amanda was too close to her family not to at the very least, gripe about it. I can't believe a Dad could sit back and watch those sermons, witness events that his daughter was struggling through and not do anything about it. Only to later brag his love and dedication to Davey. Who is Amanda's voice? Who fights for Amanda and Evie?

Bobcat said...

Amanda's brother said Amanda could fight her own battles. Her father appears to have been silenced by Newspring...no one there will fight for Amanda. It would be a life defining battle against evil. They appear to prefer letting the wolf continue preying on innocents, and be victims themselves, rather than take a hard stand for the light.

Amanda was not a coward. She fought the darkness.

flightfulbird said...

Posting link to previous thread with 5000 comments dating back to February 23, 2017 - discussing this case and Davey Blackburn's involvement or lack thereof -

https://statement-analysis.blogspot.com/2017/02/murder-of-amanda-blackburn-crime-wire.html


If this case was wrapped up and everyone believes that Davey Blackburn had absolutely no involvement or foreknowledge in his wife Amanda's extremely up close and personal method of torture and execution, nobody would still be here on SA or on Deception Indicated Facebook page or on DataLounge or Daily Mail UK or anywhere else talking about it.

But so many people are sticking with the story and following these pages. For many reasons. We want to know the truth about what happened - we want to see justice for whoever did this and whoever had any involvement in orchestrating it.

It's an intriguing story and impossible to comprehend how a pastor (although really he's just a guy with a communications degree who can afford to rent out a school and block off the majority of the seats behind screens and then stand on stage and talk to a group and call it a church) could be tangled up in this .

And it's even more impossible to comprehend how this "pastor" thinks people can't see straight through his changing stories.

Amanda's fake journal entries and Davey reading them looking for a reaction, his fake tears and twisting his wedding ring and looking mournfully down at it, his prepared statement that the best is yet to come, all of the random coincidences and even the fact that it was four years to the day they moved to Indy to plant the church that Amanda laid down her life for it and Indy. . . things aren't right and everyone knows it - Amanda's friends and family know it - Jono Blackburn knows it too.

And Davey's moving on and accepting so gracefully not just that Amanda was killed but that she was killed in the way she was - this is not the same guy who talked from stage about being so angry about what was done TO HIM, how Amanda denting his grill had actually HURT him - not the same guy who talked about getting revenge for hurts.

If the Davey that was onstage in Kate's latest video had experienced this happening to his wife and he had had nothing to do with it, he would not have been so peacefully accepting and like oh well, it was God's will and Amanda prayed that God would use us in a really big way and exponentially more people are coming into the kingdom because of her death. He would've taken the guys apart with his bare hands. Or at least said he wanted to. I am not buying for one second that "the peace that passes all understanding" is making Davey all accepting and resigned to what happened and the way it did. Davey IS the guy we see in the videos waving guns and talking about revenge - not the guy in the media blitz immediately following who is all gentle and docile.

I want to see the castle crumble.

Exactly Kate. That is the saddest part of the story. Amanda was brutally murdered and all that loved her were just forced to accept that the unread, untraveled Amanda is holding her Evie in heaven sipping pina coladas. This is Davey's story now! Resonate will resume as usual, but you can come, wear jeans and attend a celebration service, cupcakes included. Bring a friend and tell everyone to tune-in online! (numbers in attendance to be revealed on DB's GMA interview) NOTHING IS WASTED! Everyone, including the public, accept that three teenagers drove across town to brutally beat and riddle a young pregnant mom with bullets for a few hundred bucks from an ATM. (this is a ridiculous part of the story! I tell my kids never to brag about having cash, just a good rule to follow but I never fear my house is going to be broken into for my ATM card?!?) They just happened to be at the house at the time old Davey was pumping iron. Just in case, everyone forgot, Davey was at the gym! Of all the versions, he never veered from the fact he was AT THE GYM! Just your run of the mill robbery gone wrong. Everyone move on and admire Davey's bravery and buy his book and book him for speaking engagements! Invite him to speak, He will teach you how to triumph over tragedy (in between his time at your local cross fit box and golf course)

Poor Amanda. Really wish someone would do something in her name. Even the funeral was focused on Davey. SO messed up!

RI (Resonate Insider) here! Bobcat, thank you for the link! Kate, the new video is nothing short of amazing, showing DB for who he really is. I can't imagine the amount of time you spent finding these clips. Great work! Each time you post a new video I think you can't top it, then you continue to.

What can DB possibly have to say in his book that we have not yet already heard. Will it just be a summary of info we already have heard, or will more come out that we haven't heard? Will his story match up with all his various versions of it?

Did anyone see his Instagram post of him and the kids and the grocery store. Who cares where he is and what he's doing? Why does he feel the need to post a video of them at the grocery store? Then he asks the kids "Where's Mommy? Is she at work?"
Wow. Such a show.

I really wonder how we got so messed up. Was it the influence of PN? His childhood? A combination of both? Some other factor?

Kate,

When did Davey give that sermon of talking about Sandy Hook? He seems to admit to having an affair. He says God "reminded me of the time I...long pause...(seems like he was going to say had an affair)...lusted after THE woman who wasn't my wife".

Wouldn't he have said "lusted after A woman who wasn't my wife"?

flightfulbird said...

OK I wanted to see the grocery store show so I looked at Davey's Instagram and it's not there - did he see RI's post (see it from his NOThoneymoon suite) and take it down already?

At least Kristi's Instagram appears to be private - for now. Except for the saying "my heart is set on eternity", you'd know nothing about her.

And in all of the pictures I can remember of Davey with Amanda, they were never locked in arms like he and Kristi are in Kristi's profile pic. Davey was always in front of Amanda and she was clutching him like a life preserver (tm another poster who used this description) - or he'd have his back to her. Never holding each other.

When he says in the video about 21 Christians that had their throats slit, "I want you to imagine if one of those 21 people were your brother, or your sister, or your mom, your dad, your cousin, your daughter. Imagine the rage that you would feel. Imagine the desire for revenge."

He neglects to put the two people closest to him - wife and son - in that group. He hated her.

All-Thanks for the feedback on the vid. It is some type of self punishment to go through the vids and pr pieces he has given, lol. But if you could share the video or link them on other boards (as they come up) it would help. I don't make one nickel off any of these videos - so it's not anything for me, just would help to share Amanda's story and hopefully shed some light/more pressure on the case. As well with Bobcat's site.

Anon- the video of davey speaking to sandy hook was 12/18/2012. You picked up on his admittance too? I don't think there was a time when he wasn't with a mistress, but that is pure speculation on my part.

Davey at 5:20Pm, maybe you should spend less time on this board and more time on your sermons. They are horrible. The constant references to sex are inappropriate for the young teens that you have in the audience. Your constant flexing and referencing Crossfit is just boring. It's no wonder your "church" is so puny.

I hope Amanda invades your dreams so that you have sleepless night.

ok I'm not for one second going to follow Davey on Instagram so it appears I am out of luck and won't get to see Davey with the children at the grocery store lol. . . I'm surprised his narcissistic ass doesn't want the whole world to see each and every post he makes, not just his followers.

I too kept waiting for him to say "wife" when he was listing what if your brother, sister, mother, father (in whatever order) had their throats slit. He never said it ! I was thinking he would say it, but say it last - but he didn't (SA says the order in which things are stated indicates importance, yes?) But Amanda wasn't important enough to him to even mention her LAST ! I don't think they had Weston yet then - or did they?

12/18/2012 was the Sandy Hook reference - and Davey got married to Kristi on 12/18/2017 - five years to the day from that appearance. . . oh well, never mind. . .

and yeah I am ecstatic that there is another thread once the one got to 5000 posts (that says something) - now I can stay in the basement and continue to post on a thread about Davey instead of having to go out into the world and function lol. Here's hoping the rest of the posters from the other thread find their way here. It would be nice if there could be a post edited toward the end of the full thread to show the link to this one, just in case someone doesn't see the link on Kate's video.

Well everyone,sad news for ole DB. The building his church uses for their offices is going to be (gasp) torn down. No where for 'ole DB to "work" from! No where for the youth group to meet. Now the church not only does not have a church building, but also no office.

What will DB do? Will this give Zach the opportunity to leave with no place to meet for the youth group? Will Resonate finally find a way to build church? Davey, please update us, we're worried about you!

No Starbucks for you to walk to from work! How will you survive? I suppose you could sacrifice using your home office for your work. Then if you're at the golf course, who will know?!?!? Oh, except Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Which Sandy Hook video do you want? Kate has made MANY Sandy Hook videos claiming the grieving parents are actors and that all those brutally murdered children were make-believe.

And why do you want a link? If you're going to join the chorus of Kate-worshiping nuts here who agree with her, you'll have to find them yourself.

I posted links on the other thread. Her old YouTube account was deleted by YouTube due to her disgusting lies, but the vids are still available other places.

RE: crossfit. Did Davey do some dodgy tax trick with the owners of cross fit? There were donations in excess of $25,000.00 made to the Davey Gravy Train by someone who left the simple message - "thanks"

Why would you thank someone for letting you give them $25,000.00? You wouldn't. The "thanks" should have been from Davey, not to Davey. So what was the money for and why did it go it to the Davey Gravy Train fund? The fund closed almost immediately after the suspicious transaction. I know religious organizations don't pay tax, but the IRS might be interested in abuse of tax privileges by said organizations or entities and outright rorts. I hope someone is following the money trail.

Davey's greed for material wealth is palpable. He delightedly claimed he was on Dave Ramsey's final "baby step" OVERNIGHT. The final baby step is about having unlimited wealth. The problem with the claim is that he was never even on the precursor to baby step one, which is to apply a tourniquet to spending. That means no unnecessary spending. None. Davey Blackburn hadn't even taken the first "baby step" before claiming to be on the final one.

No unnecessary spending means no gym, Davey, you liar. I'd like to remind people of Davey's sycophantic suck up to Dave Ramsey - calling him " my hero" and saying he loves him so much that he want to go bald, like Dave Ramsey. (?!) should it ever be necessary for Davey to explain the extraordinary amount of life insurance he had on Amanda, and how and why he has used his new found wealth to purchase real estate and automobiles, holidays, and clothes, and God-knows-what-else, creepy Davey Blackburn will hide behind Dave Ramsey and say it was all DR's idea.
-------------------------------

Davey and Kristi gave Weston and Natalia only "one really big" gift this Christmas. Considering 3 and 4 year olds tend to get more fun from unwrapping presents than the actual gift, and have little understanding about the monetary value of things, I think that it's pretty shitty. What do you think the one really big gift was? - Davey wouldn't say. I'm guessing it was some college fund or trust account. Three and four year olds love that kind of stuff.
--------------------------------

It's great to see everyone, here. Just a word to the wise, don't feed the moronic troll. Do not respond to it. It is dumber than a box of hammers and even the most patient, and courteous response to her is met with with hostility, ignorance and animal incomprehension. It is incapable of understanding rudimentary elements of this case, never mind more complex ones. If you want to talk about the troll, I recommend you do it in the third person, for the sake of rational discourse.

Anon 8:45 (the real one) said...

Kate or anyone who can answer,

In one of the videos on Kate's 3rd one, I heard Davey talking about William Whateverhisnameis from "Braveheart" (didn't see it) and I could swear to God he said, "I'm like William W, he had his wife murdered....blahblahblah" I listened to it a couple of times to make sure he said ,"HAD his wife murdered."

I later heard things that made it seem William killed others out of revenge for her death. Did William kill his wife in the movie? Either way, Davey said, "I'm like William" and "HAD his wife murdered" It jumped out at me.

Can anyone clarify the Braveheart wife's death for me and did you hear hear Davey say "Had his wife murdered?"

===


Angry,

Unless Davey self-identifies as a woman, I don't think you are Davey. You're too pre-mentrually bitchy to be a dude. You offer no substance or counter-info, just insults. (Which by the way seem to indicate you're quite sensitive about your intelligence level.)

And even God-Blessed Davey can't menstruate....yet.

flightfulbird said...

I heard "just like William Wallace who had his wife killed and then". . .

Freudian slip? - William Wallace didn't HAVE his wife killed, as in a hit - his wife was killed in a marketplace by English soldiers (while he watched if I'm not mistaken) - there is a difference.

It's like when Robin Byars said "they HAD some men come into their house" - instead of "some men came into their house" - there is a difference.

When it is phrased the way Davey and Robin phrase it, it sounds like William Wallace orchestrated his wife's death - or that Davey had some men come into their house. And I've still not forgotten Davey's description of watching Amanda from his elevated position on the balcony/stairwell landing - Braveheart is Davey's favorite movie, or one of them.

William Wallace's wife was killed while he was there watching - did Davey see what happened or do anything to affect what happened to Amanda?

Anon 8:45 (the real one) said...

Thanks flightfulbird.

As I listened to it, it DID seem like a Freudian slip, cuz all the rest of the context Davey gave re: the movie made it seem William DIDN'T kill his own wife.

But he did say, "just like William Wallace who had his wife killed and then" What you wrote sounds more accurate. But 'like me' and 'had his wife killed" was def something Davey said.

From the very beginning of this case, I could not tolerate watching much of Davey. I got his gist immediately. The Ick factor so creeps me out and identifiable 'anti-edification' pattern he instinctually demonstrates towards people in everything he pitches is too much.


Kate, thanks for editing it down to a bearable but relevant minimum.

I showed these blogs to a (psychologist) friend and she said, "IMHO" we're dealing with a narcissist (at best - she said it could be a lot worse but she would need more info). She said there's no point in engaging him, as he feels superior and will not let up, as he has to have the last word. She asked if he had a pattern of interrupting people ("yes"), if he always talked about himself or made the conversation come back to him ("yes"), if he brags about being a rule-breaker ("yes"), blames others for his lack of respect ("yes" - remember when DB said AB had dinner ready at 6 and he would show up at 6:30, 7, etc and then when she confronted him, he said "Why can't YOU be more flexible"), does he like to make himself look good externally ("YES" - did y'all know that DB does Crossfit box and is very virile?), does he expect preferential treatment from others ("yes" - free upgrades cuz I'm DB!), can he be charming ("yes"), does he think of himself as a hero or special person ("yes" - the biblical David), does he feel powerful by attemptoing to arouse negative emotions and insecurity in others ("yes" - see above responses to posters), does he throw a tantrum if someone disagrees with his views ("yes" - see above responses to posts), does he use his partner or child to fulfill unrealized dreams or cover up inadequacies ("yes" - "a spouse can be a plus or a minus to a successful church"(paraphrase) and "I want him to grow up to be a professional baseball player like I wish I had been" (paraphrase)).

There was not a box that was unchecked.

Some info on narcs:

Narcs will find a weakness in you and exploit it til the end of the earth (Hello Anon with your million references to Kate's prior Sandy Hook video that the rest of us couldn't care less about and the typo by Anon 8:45 that you won't let up on!)

Regarding sex, the narcissist gains his ‘narcissistic supply’ from other people’s reactions to his body via sexual conquests, bodybuilding, athletic abilities, competence in outdoor activities, or sometimes simply preening.

Narcissists commit adultery and have extramarital affairs or liaisons for a variety of reasons including control, power, attention, increasing self-image and because narcissists get bored easily.

Intimacy does not exist. Narcissists are unable to empathize or genuinely love another person. They are master manipulators and know how to fake intimacy; but when their partner no longer meets their “fix” for narcissistic supply, they will drop them and abandon them with no remorse.

Narcissists feel superior and more important than others; they feel entitled to be above the law. They reject and intensely resent all limitations or conditions placed upon them by their partners. They freely act on their impulses and desires and do not care about social conventions. They love being photographed and talked about.

Marriage, monogamy, and child rearing are common activities sought after by the average person. However, the narcissist feels robbed of his uniqueness by these common pursuits and feels forced into the roles of husband or father. This narcissistic injury leads him to rebel and reassert his superiority and specialness by engaging in extramarital affairs.

Narcissists are control freaks.

Narcissists are absolutely misogynists. They hold women in contempt; they both loathe and fear them. They seek to torment and frustrate them by humiliating them. (Notice the Angry Anon poster refers to us all on this board as women, even though we know there are men that read/post).

Ok, I watched some of the DaveyBlackburn2 video where Davey is talking at some church? (when he was actually invited to speak at church services, not so much now) He says that going through a divorce and being rejected would be harder than what he has gone through. Ok, so Amanda being beaten and executed was easier for him than if she were to divorce and reject him? That needs to be in your next video clip, Kate. That is very telling! He has said this before I think on a podcast. He just reveals his selfishness every time he speaks. He also reveals his heart. I have no idea if Amanda ever threatened to leave him but it wouldn't surprise me and he basically just told the audience that he would rather his wife be beaten to an unrecognizable state and executed than for her to divorce him.

Anon 8:52, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your post about DB being a narcissist. Being the RI, I laughed out loud the entire time I was reading it, because everything you said is so true. I wish it weren't but, he is who he is.

It's funny to me who he makes a big deal out of having to answer to someone when he got married. He was used to being on his own. Really? He got married young, I think at age 21. He went to a conservative Wesleyan college, which I would guess has very strict rules for students. Did he ever leave on his own? Doubtful. So once again, another lie. I hope he'll clear that one up for us in his next sermon.

If crazy Davey knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that Amanda would want him to continue what they started in Indianapolis, why can't he stay in that city for longer than 2 weeks at a time? He is such a liar. However, Davey's claim that he knows Amanda would want him to do his great works in Indianapolis is going to severely curtail his plans for traveling the world selling his snake oil. He's going to be stuck in Indianapolis if he wants to be seen to honor Amanda's wishes. Hahah. He didn't really think that one through, properly. No doubt God will speak to his heart and say " hey Davey, forget Indianapolis, forget Amanda and do whatever the hell you like, in My name." and he'll be off the hook.

Davey is obviously bothered by the fact that we won't let go of the cell phone pings putting the suspects away from Davey's street during the robbery at Becker's. The posts below were from a few days ago, after someone posted that they thought maybe Davey burglarized Alison Becker's house at 5:35am, as the suspects hadn't yet arrived and a suspicious SUV was shown on video surveillance speeding down Davey's street around 6:00am and immediately leaving (and then Davey leaving for the gym minutes later).

So immediately after this discussion started between the regular posters, someone using multiple screen names, claiming to be insiders, barged in to the conversation and completely derailed it by having strange conversations with themselves.

From the last blog

Are people here fantasizing that the phone pings have changed since the day the thugs murdered Amanda? Or since the warrants for phone records were obtained?

The screen names that Davey is choosing are very telling. He uses "SAC" as a derogatory term for Amanda. He posts many of the cookies that she baked and then he used the screen name "Seraphim", defined as "an order of celestial beings, whom Isaiah beheld in vision standing above Jehovah as he sat upon his throne," to post about the one cookie that he liked best. He always has to put himself in a position of authority/superiority. None of the 7 new posters/insiders are here to post yet, but somehow they will all come banging in around the same time.

As someone posted, you are a SA (and psychological analysis) gold mine.

Davey brags about being on "mommy blogs" at all times of the day and also brags about how he has mastered the fine art of switching up his screen names to female names so the other mom's don't feel weird.

Davey is well aware of his non-fans. He speaks about a woman who googled him and told him all the horrible things being said online about him and Davey responded with it's only a few haters who need Jesus - something along those lines.

Davey is in scramble mode and Davey has hit the web, to little too late.

How do you feel about Amanda becoming the butt of some joke about cookies that seems to be nothing more than an attempt to get under Davey's skin? We're you hoping that would happen, too?

Davey at 4:40, give it the f up! We already solved that mystery. But a narcissist does have tp get the laat word in, so I'll wait for the rebuttal.

Ok, crazy person @ 4:45. You figured me out. I'm Davey. What do you want to know? Ask me anything.

OK Davey at 5:10PM, how much did you pay the Kilt gang?

Anonymous said...

And what was the total payout of Amanda's life insurance policy?

Sweet Amanda Cookies said...

Under Davey's skin? No, no.
My gingerbread men were dismembered in his mouth!

Anonymous said...

I paid the Kilt gang $494.76. It was supposed to be an even $500, but I stopped at Starbucks on the way to the payment drop. The life insurance payout was $100,000.

Sweet Amanda Cookies said...

Cookies are no joke - they are so much more than sugar, flour, butter, vanilla, salt, and baking powder!

That Amanda had no fear in her kitchen to double the sugar in her chocolate chip recipe shows her baking talent. Doubling the sugar throws off the moisture content and makes the cookies spread too thin, but Amanda obviously took that into account by spacing the dough farther apart on her baking pans.

Amanda knew what she was going, and I applaud her skill! Memories of good cookies should warm Davey's heart, not get under his skin. I am sorry if that is the case.

So you guys know about Samantha Smith, the wife of the late Andrew Smith who played basketball for Butler University. She did a podcast with DB and she also works out at the same Crossfit box as DB. She's in some of the same pictures that you guys posted on here of K and D. Well, Samantha Smith as left Resonate Church.

*has left Resonate Church.

Samantha's another lucky escapee. I remember that podcast. Samantha Smith is still genuinely grieving the loss of her beloved husband. She is authentic in ways that Davey can only dream of trying to imitate. When she spoke about her loss and grief, Davey said he "couldn't imagine" how she felt.

Resonate appears to be morphing in to cross fit. Has anyone got anything to say about this?

Your margarine is a poor substitute for my Grade AA butter, unless you prefer soft cookies...but hydrogenated fats are a poor choice in any food, in my opinion.

I only use real butter in my cookies. You really can't beat it for taste!

This cold front is giving me the urge to bake. A hot oven = a warm house and happy bellies!

Anonymous said...

Good one, Kate. I felt very sorry for the poor woman who alerted Davey (he already knew) to the fac that if you google the name Davey Blackburn, a whole slew of people (described by Davey as a sliver) who "don't like you very much" pop up.

The oily and open handed forgiveness he offers those who sexually assaulted and murdered his pregnant wife does not extend to those who question the circumstances of her brutal death. Funny about that.

Anonymous said...

You'd think Davey would welcome questions about Amanda's senseless and brutal murder, well, if he was innocent, he would. How does he know that he wasn't the target of the hit? How does he know Amanda's execution style murder was not a case of mistaken identity, that the gang didn't go to the wrong house? Why doesn't he care that his house may have been under surveillance by the gang - they knew Allison B's house would be empty - how did they know? Why does he appear so uninterested in the facts of the case, to the point of shutting down anyone who is interested.

The fact that Davey insults and belittles those who do not believe Amanda's murder was random, speaks volumes.

This little dumpy unattractive former babysitter some think is involved with him? Could be, who really cares, when she is nothing to him but usery when all he really needs is a baby sitter and she perfectly fits the bill. But she'd better get ready to experience some painful anal sex which is what she's in for while HE goes on performing his anal and lollipop sex outside the bounds of their relationship. Was she already involved, at least with siding up with him prior to Amanda's murder? Very well likely since for some strange reason she suddenly moved out of their home and Amanda stopped posting right about that same time. ACTIONS speak louder than words. They always have and they always will. ABB

OMG, and all that humiliation he put her through over his 'bad' marriage and how having a baby makes it worse, and his disappointing sex life with her, even making embarrassing innuendos of threatening her with anal 'butter' sex. I just can't imagine how no one in Amanda's family ever picked up on what an a'hole he really was in his treatment of Amanda; idly standing back, watching him destroy her soul. ABB

Unfortunately, Amanda is the one who paid for it for the rest of her horrible marriage to him and his anal buttered up sex that publically hinted at and forced on Amanda. Poor girl. He sickens me. He is a despicable human being guised as a man and a minister of the gospel, a leader and a pastor. ABB

I believe his use of the butter term in conjunction to using butter during sex was meant as an anal threat to Amanda, "you know what I did to you with the butter..." Being all but impotent with Amanda, the nasty thing would use all the props he could, to hell with Amanda's pain, displeasure and humiliation. He didn't give a shyt whether she liked it or not. I believe Amanda had come to despise Davey as she silently kept her anguish to herself. ABB

That confirms what others have said: Sweet Amanda Cookies is not some new "insider" who happened to surface here at the same time as the other "insiders." She's one of the old-timers who have been here forever, otherwise she wouldn't have instantly known who ABB is. She's PRETENDING to be an insider --- and, even worse, pretending to have known/cared about a murder victim. Why? For attention? To get Davey Blackburn's attention? Freaking amazing.

I thought it was far-fetched to say Sweet Amanda Cookies is ABB, but ABB is actually deranged enough to do something like this. Someone call the men in white coats.

I was on this blog long before Amanda's murder, too, and people have accused me of being Davey many times. You think everyone is Davey because you WANT them to be. You'll probably respond and accuse me of being Davey, and it just makes you look dumb, but you'll never realize it, so go ahead.

One of Davey's main stories about Amanda is how important it was to him to find a woman who loved Jesus more than him. He was so bummed when Amanda gave him up for lent that he spoke with his friend. His friend reminded him how important it was to him that he find a woman who loved Jesus so much and Davey agreed.

Cut to the here and now, he doesn't mention what a God loving woman Kristi is, in fact, the love for Jesus doesn't seem to make it into his talk at all with regards to Kristi's beliefs. What does make it into the sermon? Talk about party boats, talk about how he won't ever post to his social media pictures of him drinking and how he was gunning to set up the honeymoon, etc.

I think that DB's stance towards his church is much like that of a young talented athlete who is contemplating going pro before going to college. DB sees it as "I can build a church later, but I may not always have the opportunity to get famous. So, he's essentially trying to "go pro" while at the same time is trying to live out all of his dreams before he gets convicted.

Bingo said...

Can we please just ignore the person who is the cookie person and continue to discuss. Davey has been instastorying the little girl (Natalia?so much. It is weird. His last post was he and she on a daddy-daughter date. (His words) If I were the Real Daddy, I would not be happy. Davey is crossing the line and just being creepy. I know, I know, what’s new?? Ha. But according to his story he has really only known these people for a few months and now they are married and he is daddy? Of course, I think K and D were together a lot longer than they are saying. This case just stinks so bad. Poor Amanda.

Bobcat said...

In Kate's latest video, Davey refers to himself as a 'pastor' while making air quotes, in the context of Kristi's friends.

What's so disgusting about MOST of these thug hipster "Pastors" is that you would never have an inkling that they are pastors, until they self-identify.

Informing someone that you are a pastor shouldn't elicit surprise, imho.

I would much rather be alone with my husband in a brand new marriage instead of sharing the house with literally anyone else. But we have no children and they have two young ones, plus which it's the second marriage for both of them.

Maybe three's not a crowd in this case and Kristi likes having a nanny - but not necessarily a live-in one that is around at night as well. I wonder if Kristi knew Davey + Meg the live-in nanny was a package deal when she agreed to marry him.

And I wonder if she has second thoughts after marrying him.

Marry in haste--repent at leisure. Does DB (sorry, can't stand calling him Davey--please grow up and get a 'big-boy' name) work, other than preparing his 'sermons' on the weekend? All of this is so confusing. There is a verse in the Bible that says that God is not the Author of confusion. The longer it goes, the less it makes sense--this ABB murder story, more specifically, the DB part. I keep looking for any natural or reasonable reaction from him, and the only one so far is the one where he is having coffee, and it turns out that Larry Taylor was a foster of another pastor (?), and DB makes some kind of comment about being twice removed relationally (my paraphrase). When I first read that, I thought he was talking about KB (KM) and the fact that her step-father is a volunteer chaplain to the suspect(s). I am waiting for any of this to make sense. I wonder if I have that kind of time. Anything that seems to be a logical explanation is conveniently explained away with a less-than-plausible rational. Someone (LE) please tie this one together with a big honesty bow, and please do not settle for a second-best deduction. I really hope that LE is diligent and doing their job, as if it was their wife or sister or mother that was murdered in her own home so viciously.

Just want to say I'm so glad I found this continuation of the discussion! A LOT of great posts! I can't help but wonder why Indy LE will not look into DB. And I want to know what JW said to get out of the murder charge. So frustrating to see posters putting pieces together that LE never looked at and let slide. They must have tons of info that can show a link to DB and the gang members. They just don't want to look in his direction, and it makes me wonder why. So many things wrong with this case, and I'm so sorry for Amanda, especially seeing DB fancy free and remarried. Kate,thanks for the videos! I'm a patient person and still can't sit through a whole sermon. I wouldn't even call them sermons, just DB worshiping his new lifestyle and thinking everyone loves to hear all about him. There should be a law against setting up these kinds of "churches". Such a big con, grabbing tax free money and perks that are used with such greed. If you added up what he has spent since we heard of him, in free services, school for Weston, vacations, golfing, globe-trotting, donations, wedding etc., etc., when he barely works, he would be in big trouble with IRS. They don't do much for their communities. How do they (these unlicensed " pastors") get away with this. Maybe LE doesn't want to upset the apple cart by looking into one of these guys, there are too many others they would have to go after. Sorry for the rant.

There is has been some new, different information on twitter. The coordinator of the Indy Crime Watch awarded Amanda's neighborhood the "Crimefighters of the Year Award" for how proactive they were after Amanda was killed. It was awarded 11 months after AB died. Davey was invited but didn't even respond and of course didn't show. She mentioned thinking something was seriously messed up with him from the beginning and how livid some were that he didn't even bother to come to the award ceremony. She said the neighbors rallied and worked with police after the crime and Davey never even came back, never responded to any neighbor inquiries. He showed no interest in helping or being a part of any of it. Someone asked her about the unlocked door asked how Davey responded. She said that he said something about teaching Amanda a lesson by leaving door unlocked because she lost her keys?? The Crime Watch leader was there with the police when the crime happened and that is what she remembers. I mean, seriously?? Has there ever been a bigger douche bag than DB?

Anonymous said...

"She said that he said something about teaching Amanda a lesson by leaving door unlocked because she lost her keys??"

That, right there (even if DB didn't do it or hire someone to do it), makes him an accomplice.

He left the door unlocked knowing that they were in a crime-ridden neighborhood, a fact that AB voiced to neighbors and to DB (will look for link). In what way would that teach AB a lesson? I am wondering what outcome would be sufficient to meet his objective...what, her getting up and realizing the door was unlocked--would that do it for him? Would that be enough punishment? Exactly how are we supposed to slice that statement? What would be enough for her to be punished for her misdeed? What did DB expect would happen as a result of his discipline? Oh..lucky Amanda, wasn't she, to be living with such a kind, caring, and attentive husband. No wonder she wrote 'help' in one of her journal entries. I will try to find the link, but I'm not sure where to look right now. Maybe next time I have computer time. I take it in snippets, a little time here and there. Thanks for your patience.

Bingo said...

EXACTLY!! He was an accomplice just with that statement alone! I think it was much more sinister than that but teaching her a lesson by leaving the door unlocked?? That makes no sense but he is absolutely blaming her for her own murder. He has NO remorse for leaving that door unlocked. He left it unlocked ON PURPOSE! to teach a lesson and his other statement was she was about to get up anyway. He left it unlocked purposefully and in both statements he has said about it, he puts the blame on her.

Now he is bragging about how great it is to do life with this girl.

Yeah I clicked on that Family Day Saturday link expecting to find all four of them together in the snow - having built an igloo or something - which would have been sort of cool. Weston and Natalia are cute kids - it's a shame his dad and her stepdad is an absolute snake of a human.

Davey loves doing life with Kristi. How romantic. NOT. That's the same thing Kenneth Wagner said when he tweeted about loving his weekly conversations with Davey and having a true friend to do life with. I absolutely hate that expression.

Married not even a month - and Davey cannot say I love being married to this girl - not even I love living with this girl or I love having this girl in my life.

There is a difference. A HUGE difference.

Megs Instagram from October 24, 2017 - it's no wonder Davey keeps her in his house - he can't lose this praise. And scroll down to the last sentence in bold -

megsgriffWhat a JOY it is to follow @daveyblackburn! In every season he is faithful, he is bold, and he has his eyes locked on Jesus. Today we’re celebrating pastor appreciation month and #DaveyAppreciationDay not because of how great he is, but because how great Jesus is in him and how faithfully and courageously this man follows Jesus. Davey, Thank you for the grace you give, the vision you carry, and the faith you lead with. Thank you for giving me this seat to see all the miracles in your life and this church I love. Do all you have in mind, I’m with you heart & soul.


Do ALL you have in mind? That is a cryptic statement indeed. WHAT does Davey have in mind to do, that Megs is with him heart & soul in doing it?

Kate said...

Well, Davey does speak to one of his favorite books being penned by a woman who lost two husbands to death..... he was very impressed by that fact.

Bingo said...

Well, Davey did call Megs his punching bag when wishing her a happy assistants day (or some degrading day like that) Megs moved back in because Kristi has to work to support the family financially and Davey sho nuff ain't gonna get his hands dirty. The whole Megs thing moving in with Amanda and Davey to help Nanny when Amanda was a stay at home Mom and now moving in with wife #2 to take care of two kids. Does she just have no identity or self-esteem? When is someone going to write a book about this whole case? Oh my word!

Kate said...

Very true Bingo. But if they are livin' as large as they appear to be, they need that nanny. Party boats, traveling, boozing it up, gym workouts, 4 wheelin', all requires someone to watch the kids, Meg fits in perfectly and yet, Davey can't understand why Weston is taking so long to potty train.

I think Kristi is the polar opposite of Amanda. Kristi is Davey's TammyFaye, despite the fact that all these years later and he still can't even get the church moved out of the school and continues to beg others to do it. He's a lazy narc, he really is.

I am interested in the contrast of Kristi and Amanda. Besides the booze cruise, are they really partying it up? They sure do seem to enjoy the traveling and adventure trips, you are correct Kate. Is the Resonate insider still on here? Can they shed some light on Kristi and her comparison to the not well-read or well-traveled Amanda who can't keep up with her keys?

And that about Amanda is only meaning that is about the only thing Davey has ever said about her. Obviously, she was the lovely and talented one of the couple. Her life was wrecked by meeting him. Does Gavin ever feel guilt for introducing the two?

Anonymous said...

Meg is the biggest insider (no pun intended) of all.

Anonymous said...

Resonate Insider is here,

I no longer attend Resonate, but I know people who do. From what I saw from Kristi, was that she kept to herself. She served in the children's ministries and kept a low profile, not interacting with the other church goers. This was odd for someone who aspired to be the next pastor's wife. I do have to say though, that the other pastor's wives at the church aren't the most friendly to new-comers, so maybe that isn't a requirement for pastor's wives at Resonate.

I think Resonate was shocked with the revelation of K. I think DB's inner circle knew, but others did not. Honestly, I dismissed her as the next pastor's wife because she came across in her heels and with a child, as not someone who would really make a pastor's wife. She wears a lot of makeup (and seems to have toned it down in her pics with DB), and gives off the kind of Kim Kardashian vibe.

When she first came out as his gf, it was very strange. There was a huge elephant in the room. Everything I've heard about Amanda is that she loved everyone and stood behind everyone. She made you feel like you could do anything. She was a church leader and her family and church were her number one priorities. Amanda was well-loved among the church.

I did notice that Natalia would come up to Davey after church and give him huge hugs. I just assumed that DB knew K from a single parent's small group at church and Natalia took a liking to him. I never, ever expected K to be D's gf. I think everyone was pretty sure that Samantha Smith was the one who was "getting to know" DB.

Bingo said...

Thanks insider. I think it is interesting that the staff of Resonate who are going to turn Indy upside down don't even really hang out with the Resonate members or visitors. What you said about Amanda is exactly what I thought. She seemed to be the one who invited friends to church to hear about Jesus. I bet she took prayer requests, welcomed everyone and cared more about life change than church growth. Davey just likes a stage and wanted big numbers. He calls himself a maverick and Amanda was the one was simple and took things slow. He is the epitome and worst case example of what the American church has become. I just wish her family would be her voice instead of standing behind Davey, letting Amanda be degraded, ignored and replaced.

Samantha Smith should consider herself lucky. She has total freedom to get away from so-called "church" and find REAL people (not sheeple) to share (not "DO") her life with.

It's Golden Globes night !

Davey's pretentious ass and his humblebragging lifestyle of the rich and famous (while it lasts, while he's not yet in prison for orchestrating his wife's murder while he was at the gym) would fit right in out here in Los Angeles.

We have Crossfit boxes everywhere, we have cosmetic surgeons and dentists if he needs them to redo his new white choppers in the future - we have tanning beds and beaches - and recording studios and film studios and publishing companies too for his next record and movie and book deals -- along with Lightworks video production company which he has already met when he made his poignant video with him and Weston waking up to an empty bed, trying to convince us oh how hard it is for us two bachelors missing Amanda's gut laughing so much each and every day we wake up alone.

So contrived, that video - with him doing laundry with Weston. Everyone knows Meg and Ashley did the laundry for them. And it's obvious that he hates Weston too - he only loves Weston for what Weston can do for him.

And Davey wasn't alone for all that long. I think he was sharing life (or doing life, to use his words) with Kristi way, way before Meg introduced her to the world when she said it's happening, this is real, it's time for the world to meet this couple (unsure if those were her exact words).

I bet it kills Davey to have to stay in Indy with his little church of five rows in a middle school - that has to put up screens to hide how many seats aren't filled so the empty seats and lack of crowds won't show up on video. Puny little church.

And the fact that he said to Samantha Smith that he couldn't imagine how she must feel - that says a TON. Someone upthread wrote that Davey thought (and actually said?) that Amanda divorcing him would be worse than Samantha losing her husband. He had a nightmare or bad dream in which Amanda was leaving him. Did he see the writing on the wall and had her killed before she could leave him - to protect his image and his "church"?

And a thousand times yes to Bingo's statement that whatever drew people to Resonate Indy, it was Amanda and not Davey. Amanda's caring, sweet spirit - wanting to get to know the people and pray for them - having them into their home - SHE poured her life out to them. I imagine she would have given the shirt off of her back (literally, not figuratively) to anyone who needed it.

Davey himself said Amanda loved people and gave her life to people and poured her life out to people and loved those who were unlovable. AMANDA was the bright spot in Resonate - she was the one bringing people in.

Davey is nothing without her.

Why does Meg stay with him?

What will happen at the pretrial conference tomorrow?

Standing ovation, flightful bird! You know he's watching the Golden Globes, thinking of what he'll wear and say when he makes it to Hollywood. He's such a joke!

DW- Any updates from the dossier? Did you get any responses from it?

Has anyone watched the "Delayed"sermon? I just watched the first ten minutes, and DB seems quite angry.

Maybe (actually definitely) better for DW to let Davey wonder what became of the dossier and how much interest it generated !
You KNOW it had to have piqued the interest of more than one investigative journalist or law enforcement official.

OR - maybe really make Davey sweat even more than Crossfit and tell him exactly who has it and what they are doing with it.

He has to wonder when the other shoe is going to drop. IF he had any knowledge of or participated in what happened to Amanda. IF he didn't, It doesn't matter. But I think he did - definitely had knowledge and maybe / even probably participated as well.

DW- maybe a spoiler alert? I know you mentioned a few interests already in regards to reporters.

At the 3:40 mark, DB says what happens to murderers.

Sirensong - hi, and thank-you for looking the Megs post.

Bingo said...

Flightful, DB has outright said on several different occasions that getting divorce and rejected would be much worse than losing Amanda to death. And yes he did say to Samantha Smith that he can't imagine going through what happened to her. Hmmm

Glad Samantha Smith left the church. I can't believe she ever spent any time with Davey. I was hoping it would never be anything romantic. She knew real love from an amazing husband. I can't imagine her having to go through being with Davey. Davey crushed and destroyed Amanda who was way too good for him.
