In the never-ending saga that is “how much money is Ken O’Keefe asking for today and where did it go?” this blog presents yet another chapter. As anyone who regularly follows this blog knows, Ken O’Keefe is really good at one thing especially, asking other people to financially support him. We’ve simply stopped counting the amount of times he’s opened some kind of Indiegogo or other online form of begging, because there are so many of them. There was Trade for Aid, Tahrir for Gaza, Ferry to Gaza, Aloha Palestine, the Samouni Project, the Gaza Ten and many more, most of them can only be defined as a flop, though the money was sent. However, while one is happy to (and should) give what they can to help the unfortunate, the poor, the victims of oppression and war, which is at least the subterfuge used in some of the “charity” campaigns, one probably should have a little less willingness to “shell out” (Ken’s own words – see photo below – when he started asking for donations/investments for the failed David Icke project he was part of, The People’s Voice, which some refer to as a two million dollar scam) when they don’t know what the money is used for. Obviously, Ken gives them an idea… it’s for the “mission” and as a missionary, he claims that he needs the money to pay his bills, because they won’t get paid by themselves (never mind finding a JOB or actually working!) He considers what he does highly valuable, actually, calls it an investment, and that he makes no bones about his right to also get people’s money for it. Quite clearly, for Ken, Charity, as they say, begins at home.
But, this time, differently from TPV, the project isn’t clear, and he doesn’t really talk about paying the bills, he’s put forward that he’s going to absolutely save the world with what is referred to (in the most amazing misuse of hashtags in the history of the punctuation) as a #solutionary #speech #visionary #artist #worldcitizensolutions #kenokeefe #inspiring #microcosm #macrocosm #bethechange #gamechanger #movershaker #dreambeliever #infinitecreator #standup #stopfundingwar #endwarcrimes #startpeace #samanthabachman #sachastone. You get the idea… it’s the stuff dreams are made of! It’s about peace! It’s about change! It’s a GAME CHANGER of both the macrocosm and the microcosm. Make no mistake.
But why in the world does the game always remain the same! When our great missionary went “on the road” to the dreaded USA to promote himself, as we documented in the post: Would you Like some Cheese with that Whine, Ken?, during the time that the plans for this great and amazing “World Citizen Solution” were supposed to be unveiled to the waiting masses who shelled out (his words!) despite the promise that he would put most of it into his salary, that he’d tell them as soon as the goal was reached just what they were throwing money at, and work would start at the creation of videos talking about the plan. They would have to be patient, they’d have to TRUST HIM because HE is the man with the plan.
His tour brought about some new fruit, such as his new relationship, announced as any love-struck teen does on facebook, with the (very) young lady in the photo. Thank goodness for his wife, to have already been relieved of the role as “Mother” in the defunct Aloha Palestine C.I.C. (yes, that’s the role she is registered as in the Companies House), because it could get sloppy, as much as a “come to yer uncle” picture hints at.
But, one’s personal affairs are their own business and in no way should doing selfies with a woman half one’s age be seen as beneath heroic status. It’s all love. What instead DOES seem strange is that in the past few days, one of the supporters claimed that he was worried about the disappearance of Ken, because Ken (always the drama queen) insists that his very life is in danger and that people want to kill him. Evidently, he doesn’t think that anyone who has sent him MORE money and was again let down would do anything but hang a lei around his holy head, no… nobody’s running with a pitchfork in their hands… they shelled out because he asked them to. His murderers are all “the Powers that be” because he’s just SO on to their game. No one before him EVER said that the government lies to people and that bankers run the world and that taxes finance wars! Well, anyway, he thinks no one else ever said these things before he did, and his fans see this all as so illuminating. He had HIS deadlines for the plan to be financed, but now that he’s got the money, he doesn’t think he owes anyone any answers. And that is exactly how he reacted to the question of his whereabouts.
The typical knee-jerk claim that he’s laying low, his plan is being worked on and that NO ONE should question him because he is simply so important and what he is doing is so movershaker and so he should be TRUSTED, no questions asked, and none tolerated either in his typical passive-aggressive approach. And how did people react? Did they say, “actually, Ken, trust is good but you made a promise”. No. They back up his excuses for suckers. Ken is a good man, he is telling it always like it is so honest by default, brother Ken should not be questioned, and the classic to beat all classics, “those who attack him are paid shills”. Far as anyone could see, there were no attacks, there were simple questions, coated in layers of esteem and support. The only one PAID and quite copiously, is KEN HIMSELF. He’s the one that has other people’s money in HIS bank. He’s the one whose bills are being paid, who gets to go to restaurants instead of making do with whatever one can scrape together for dinner on little or no money. There are dozens of photos others have put up of his comfy lifestyle. It might not be in the nice townhouse in London (I guess the “Mother” of the company he closed gets that since she does have to raise two small kids alone), but it’s got fancy hotels with gorgeous sheets and wi-fi.
“Make no mistake”, “Bank on it”… Ken is going to censor anyone who questions him, as he did the comments actually asking where Ken had been and what this famous plan that has already been financed is. Comments eliminated, the mobbing of the one asking questions commenced. All in a missionary’s work.
