David Icke: Living it up in California!
Ok people, here is a VERY simple question for you:
Let’s say you had £100K in the bank. Let’s say it was in the HSBC for example.
Now let’s say you wanted to set up business in the US but you only had that £100K and you wished to look after it – it’s YOUR hard earned money after all right? With me so far?
But “DING!”, an idea comes to mind and you decide to launch a donation drive on Indiegogo and it raises £300K. You quickly deposit that money into Barclay’s Bank. The even better thing is, obviously, it’s not YOUR money in the sense it has taken absolutely NO effort on your part to make that money. You just ASKED for it and “abracadabra” you got it! The universe brings to you that which you wish for – David Icke was right! Just have positive energy! Try it! 😉
So, now you have £400K and you think “Great, we can go to the US and have a whale of a time while trying to set things up!”. So you book the best hotels, have sumptuous meals and check out the bars. You spend, perhaps around £20K, perhaps more (but it doesn’t matter even if you spent £1, the issue is still the same).
Someone says “Hey, you’ve certainly lived it up while I cannot say whether it was the donation money you spent or not”.
You turn round and say “No, we didn’t spend the donation money! I can show you the credit card withdrawals coming from the HSBC bank account”.
Here’s the simple question: Does it make ANY difference which bank account the cash was withdrawn from when the fact is this: You wouldn’t have spent that much money from your own £100K IF it wasn’t for the fact you had reached the £300K goal of the donation drive would you?
That means that you HAVE in essence spent on the basis of receiving those donations.
Another way of looking at it (for those with logic impairments): If you had an income of £1000 a week and outgoings of £1000 a week, you’re pretty unlikely to spend, a non budgeted for, £5K on a holiday to Barbados are you?
Now, let’s say your father dies and leaves you £100K in his will that’s now in a savings account of yours. Would you consider the Barbados holiday then?

Hello Sonia. First I would like to thank you for the work that you have done. I was shocked to hear that you were leaving TPV yesterday when I saw the announcement posted both on your Facebook page and TPV page. However, I kind of sensed something was about to surface. Here is my story.
I met Sean and Deanna in Los Angeles in August of 2013. I have been a fan of David Icke’s research and was following TPV from its initial announcement. I donated money to the cause twice because I believed in it full-heartedly. Sean and Deanna were very personable, and I was excited to meet them and hopefully become involved with TPV. My partner befriended both of them on Facebook and later he noticed that they were staying in very high end hotels and expensive areas of Los Angeles and San Francisco. They were posting pictures of their escapades at bars and restaurants, etc. I remember wondering if this was being funded by the money I had donated to TPV along with many others. I also was surprised that they would choose such expensive places to stay. However, I do not know how all of this was paid for and it is certainly possible that the money donated to TPV was not used to fund this.
Fast forward to last week when I became aware of the telethon that was scheduled to raise more money for TPV since it was in danger of going off the air. I specifically read the article on the ActivistPost website where David was interviewed. The article was explaining TPV appeal for more funding and I remember thinking “what are they doing with they money?” I thought if they were spending the money on high end hotels and bars then it certainly does not budget matters. It also does not look good.
For the record, I have no proof that TPV funds were used inappropriately. However, it is very uncanny that my thoughts on this entire situation are shortly followed by the events of yesterday and today. Coincidence? Perhaps…
Sonia, if what you are saying is true I commend you for having the courage to go where others will not. I absolutely agree with you that the finances of TPV should be public. After all, it IS the PEOPLE’S voice…is it not?
