The Company We Keep

Lowell Hubbs and Friend
I must admit I was really hoping to move beyond this silly discussion surrounding Mr. Hubbs' "extracurricular activities" and I had hoped to put an end to his ongoing desire to continue to speak about child porn as if it is a personal hobby of his, but there comes a point where it seems important to speak about the company a person keeps because it sheds light on the character (or lack thereof) of a man.

A little history is likely in order here for those keeping score at home, so I'll provide some background data for those who haven't been able to review all the comments. On a previous post, a comment was posted from a person called "IT Firestone" where he or she listed of a series of websites that Mr. Hubbs was apparently visiting. This person also referenced some of Mr. Hubbs activities on a public terminal as well as speaking about some of his associates.

Now it should be stated I have no way to verify what IT Firestone stated, but based upon the comments and Mr. Hubbs rebuttals, it seems obvious there is quite a bit of truth contained within those few comments. In response to IT Firestone's statements, Mr. Hubbs immediately began tossing out accusations of hackers that were putting pornography into his email etc, etc, although in truth this all seemed like a well crafted cover-up to excuse his behavior. You'll have to be the judge on that one.

Long story short, since this original discussion occurred, Mr. Hubbs has continued to talk about his friends and the topic of child abuse, child pornography, and other equally disturbing subject matter. What does this have to do with vaccines you might ask? I have no idea... but since Mr. Hubbs seems so focused on the issue that he has literally left dozens of comments on this blog about it, I felt we might as well get this out in the open to show the types of issues that Mr. Hubbs seems to have taken an interest in.

Below are just a few of the most recent comments that Mr. Hubbs has left on this blog:
Did you know that Harley Manning has an STD? He first went to the city site for STD support, and then he went online to Walgreens and ordered his prescription for HPV/HIV treatment medication. Would you like the number he ordered? So, in other words he is going to the home of 2, 6th grade girls and apparently having sex with them and putting them at risk for HIV....WOW. His buddy asked Harley, how was the kid? And he replied, GooOOd! ~Lowell Hubbs
So Mr. Hubbs claims that Mr. Manning has an STD and even claims he knows where Manning fills the prescriptions and even the "number" (I'm assuming that means the prescription number, bit it may mean the number of pills etc). Mr. Hubbs also claims to have knowledge of a specific conversation where Manning bragged about his conquests - yet Mr. Hubbs pretends he doesn't associate with Manning at all?

It seems to me if someone knows this level of detail about a person that they are obviously friends. Sort of makes you wonder if this "buddy" that Mr. Hubbs refers to is actually Mr. Hubbs himself. The only other possible explanation is that Mr. Hubbs is friends with the person on the other side of the conversation... a person who seems interested in hearing about sexual abuse and who obviously has no intention of reporting Manning to the authorities.  Either way it doesn't speak very highly of Mr. Hubbs.

One thing is for certain - the way Mr. Hubbs writes "GooOOd!" when speaking about sexual abuse is sickening and wreaks of him taking pleasure in discussing the topic. That suggests to me that IT Firestone's comments likely have a lot of truth in them, but things only get worse from here. Read on:
"Are you aware of that Mr. Manning is a convicted sex offender who has ratted out over 20 people to avoid years in prison, and that he still does what he did then today, right under the nose of the feds? Do you know he has a direct log in to the FBI?" ~Lowell Hubbs
If Mr. Hubbs knows this much about Mr. Manning and even claims that Manning has a "direct log in to the FBI" how can he turn around and say they aren't friends? Inquiring minds want to know. It should also be noted there is no Harley Manning found in the sex offender registry (which is in fact required for all convicted sex offenders), so it seems Mr. Hubbs' story has a few holes in it.
"Do you know that Harley was in the presents [sic] of at their house, two 6th grade girls, [redacted] and [redacted]? 11 years old. Conversation, "sorry my mother came home" What; did he excape [sic] out the window? How bad would that look! More conversations where Harley calls [redacted] "Sweetheart", and she calls him "Hun". Harley, "Sorry Im [sic] busy, Ill email you later", knowing he was buzzed in on)." ~Lowell Hubbs
Note: I have redacted the names of the two girls to protect their identities. Although I don't tend to believe Mr. Hubbs' accusations, I'd rather err on the side of caution just in case.

So again how does Mr. Hubbs just happen to know the exact conversation that occurred between Manning and another person? If Mr. Hubbs doesn't associate with Manning, how would he obtain any of this information?

I realize Mr. Hubbs isn't very bright, but he seems to be implicating himself as being involved every time he quotes Manning. This is why I have stated several times that if Mr. Hubbs knows of sexual abuse occurring, or any activity related to child pornography it is his duty and obligation to report it. However Mr. Hubbs doesn't seem interested in reporting it... he would rather talk about it and relive it and make excuses on why reporting it won't do any good:
"He has a sealed record because he ratted out over 20 people, plus now he has a direct log in to the FBI while doing the same [redacted] he always did before. Want to see his actual records [redacted]! And you know that." ~Lowell Hubbs

"As for Mr. Manning, as he has auto-submitted emails directly to the FBI which fully incriminated himself on all levels, it would be quite clear that they know. That information was submitted to the systems of law over 2 months ago as well." ~Lowell Hubbs

"It was reported, and you know you were told that; but it seems that Mr. Manning has again acquired himself a spot in favor. They aren't going to raid his house as long as he is willing to hack what they want access to and clearly (partially) has acquired in his files." ~Lowell Hubbs
Note: I have redacted Mr. Hubb' profanity in one of the above comments but no other changes have been made to their content.

So as you can see when pressed to report these accusations to the proper authorities, Mr. Hubbs claims that he (or someone) has done so but that Manning has "a spot in favor" with the FBI and therefore nothing will be done. Sounds rather convenient to me however - because the FBI doesn't hand out "get out of jail free cards" for child abusers nor would they allow it to continue.

The fact is, Mr. Hubbs stories simply don't stand up to scrutiny. A comment left on this very blog suggested to him in the past that he could report these crimes to the local police, to the department of social services, to the local media, or to a child protection organization but it doesn't seem to have any impact upon Mr. Hubbs. So rather than actually doing the right thing, what does Mr. Hubbs counter with?

You guessed it... he tries the old "I know you are but what am I" retort straight out of a Pee Wee Herman movie. Instead of defending his inaction, or explaining why he seems to know so much about this Mr. Manning, Mr. Hubbs chooses instead of accuse me of being involved:
"You were CAUGHT operating right in the middle of one of the most twisted multi-state sex rings imaginable; headed by their Kingpin, H. Manning." ~Lowell Hubbs
I guess apparently I was caught... yet it seems since not only have I not done anything, but I don't even have any idea who this Mr. Manning is. If there is such a thing as a "multi-state sex ring" operating in or around the area it is news to me, but I'll state again for the record that if Mr. Hubbs has information about such activities and if he fails to report it (or continues to make excuses on why he hasn't reported it or why it wouldn't do any good) then he is just as guilty as anyone he claims is involved.

I will say that if Mr. Hubbs believes I am involved, by all means report me to the authorities. I have nothing to hide and if a member of law enforcement wants to speak with me, investigate me, interrogate me, or anything else I am more than willing to cooperate 100%. The thing is, it seems fairly obvious that Mr. Hubbs is just slinging mud and making things up as he goes (a classic case of projection if I've ever seen one), and I know I have no such involvement in any "multi-state sex ring", but since Mr. Hubbs likes to fabricate details to deflect his own disturbing involvement I'll go ahead and bite... bring it on Mr. Hubbs.

In any case, Mr. Hubbs doesn't stop there. His accusations continue:
"To include uploading sick videos of me to the site [redacted] that have had my face spliced into it. I couldn't make up a story like that if I tried, and it would be pointless to even make such an effort." ~Lowell Hubbs
Note: I have redacted the name of the website that Mr. Hubbs is so fond of that he has to mention it daily. If this site is actually somehow affiliated with kiddie porn, I'm not about to give them free advertising or share it with others. I wish Mr. Hubbs would quit referencing their website in his comments, but for some reason he seems to take pleasure in talking about them time and time again.

I guess from this particular comment I'm supposed to believe that someone is uploading videos to that website and digitally pasting Mr. Hubbs face into the videos? Now I've heard of photoshopping images, but to digitally alter a video frame by frame is much more difficult and isn't likely to be done by anyone who isn't a professional working for Lucasarts or ILM etc, so this calls into question Mr. Hubbs accusations. Could it be that Mr. Hubbs had one of his personal videos uploaded without his consent and now he is claiming it is fake? I can't say because A) I have zero desire to visit that website, B) I have even less desire to see Mr. Hubbs in a video, and C) I find zero validity and truth in anything Mr. Hubbs ever says, so this is just another example of him fabricating stories in his own twisted mind.

Now keep in mind Mr. Hubbs claims he isn't friends with Mr. Manning as explained here:
"...where do you get the idea that I have any personal contact with Harley Manning. I knew him for many years, and NO ONE knew the sick life he was living, he never let onto it with anyone. However, looking back on how many times he moved and the excuses he used, it all fits now. I didn't disconnect from him until I had the conclusive proof, and gave him the benefit of the doubt as he claimed it was someone else with the same name. He is a very skilled liar, and he still denies it all today. We were tipped off by some hackers that were after me, that there was child porn in that computer. We never had the proof. The truth is all to obvious in multiple ways now. What Harley turned into once he was caught was a monster noone [sic] knew he could be. Very dangerous man to the community, and he has some very slick things going on, and he is it appears largely untouchable by the law, if you only knew,(or do you)." ~Lowell Hubbs
Aside from the silly notion that "hackers" who "were after" Mr. Hubbs tipped him off (why would someone who is supposedly after him help him in any way?), we are to believe that Mr. Hubbs was friends with Manning in the past, but now he has "disconnected". That is all fine and dandy, but it seems odd given the following comment he left on this blog:
"In 2004 Harley came to the door of his apt. at then the Albert House, with his chest hair shaved to the nipples. I was puzzled by that, but noone [sic] knew of his secret and twisted life, not even those people closest to him. He hadn't had any recent surgeries, and I would understand trimming chest hair so it wouldnt [sic] stick out above the shirt collar. What do you suppose was going on with that? Well, now 7 years later I know. He only needed to shave what was above his child porn manufacturing outfit. When he was asked about that last fall why, as to would any man shave his chest hair to just above the nipples, he asked, "who did that"? The reply, "you did"! He angrily replied, "maybe I was sweaty"." ~Lowell Hubbs
Ok I apologize for the disturbing mental visuals that accompany this particular quote, but I feel it is important to quote Mr. Hubbs directly. For a guy who seems to want to distance himself from Manning, and for a guy who claims he isn't friends with him, it strikes me odd that Mr. Hubbs can quote a conversation that occurred and he remembers each and every word as if he wrote it down in his personal journal.

Yet Mr. Hubbs still refuses to take action to report the crimes he claims have occurred and instead tries to deflect back to me:
"Costners [sic] buddy and accomplice in it all, Harley Manning, is a person who has been witnessed ordering fake poop, anal lube, an anal rape kit, and as well dildos size small, and more, all online; and you claim I am the criminal...WOW! The slander never ends, and it is you Costner who was caught accessing one of the most sickening and twisted archives of child porn and including manufactured porn with adults having sex and sexual contact with children. Files to even include murder and rape. Those files came directly from a multi-state sex ring you have operated out of and all of your activity has been run through that, to include blogger." ~Lowell Hubbs
Once again he have Mr. Hubbs sharing specific details about Manning. This time claiming to know what Manning has purchased (I don't even want to know where someone would order an "anal rape kit") - yet we are to believe he isn't friends with him? For a guy who isn't friends or isn't involved, he sure seems to know a lot of very, very specific details. The term "disturbing" doesn't even do this justice.

Of course what Lowell Hubbs comment would be complete without more accusations towards me, so once again I remind Mr. Hubbs that if he thinks I'm involved in this disgusting and illegal activities he suggests he should be reporting me to the authorities. Heck... feel free to show them this blog and if a member of the Sioux Falls police department or FBI or any other law enforcement agency wants to get a hold of me, all they need to do is ask.

But we all know that won't happen because all of this has only occurred in Mr. Hubbs sick twisted mind. Are we honestly to believe there is a website that shows these types of videos and even videos of murder and that the website wouldn't be shut down or that those involved are just walking around free? Are we to believe that Mr. Hubbs knows the identity of these people but that law enforcement can't figure it out? On what planet does any of this actually make sense?

Mr. Hubbs likes to play the denial game and tries to accuse others of being involved, but when you really boil it down it is like all of his other claims: There is no proof to any of it, and there are unlimited excuses on why that proof doesn't exist. I really hope this is all a story in Mr. Hubbs' mind because the idea of children being mentally and physically injured enrages me, but the fact is since I can't prove it either way the best course of action is simply to state what I know here for the record and to let people judge for themselves.

Now frankly I don't know this Mr. Manning. I have never met him nor have I ever heard from him personally. I have never talked to him, emailed him (or received email from him), and I wouldn't know him if I saw a picture of him.  There have been a couple of comments posted to this blog under the name Harley Manning, but those were posted by Mr. Hubbs trying to pose as Harley, therefore truth be told I can't even be sure it is a real person or if it just one of Mr. Hubbs' alternate identities.

I stated in the past that I tried to locate information on Manning and since Mr. Hubbs has made so many accusations about him I would have assumed he would have a criminal record and/or would be a registered sex offender but I had no such luck locating anything other than an address and phone number, and even then I can't be sure it is the same person (one has to assume there are more than one Harley Manning in the world).

That being said, since I know very little about Manning it probably isn't fair of me to cite his name and associate him with Mr. Hubbs because I have no way to verify any of Mr. Hubbs claims or statements. However if even 10% of what Mr. Hubbs claims is true (and I sort of doubt that to be the case) then Mr. Manning is not the type of person that I would want to associate with.

My recommendation to anyone who comes into contact with either Mr. Manning or Mr. Hubbs would be to turn away and head the other direction for your own safety and for the safety of others around you. If you have children please don't allow either of these two men to be in contact with them, and especially ensure they are never alone with the children. If you suspect either of these two men are involved in any illegal activity please contact law enforcement and remember it is better to be safe than sorry.

I ask you... knowing what is stated above and the types of people that Mr. Hubbs has associated with in the past and/or continues to associate with, is this the type of person you should take medical advice from? Knowing what we now know, does it seem rather curious why Mr. Hubbs seems so concerned about young children? Could it be that the only reason Mr. Hubbs is on this anti-vaccine crusade is so that he can get closer to children as he fools unsuspecting parents into believing he is just looking out for their best interests and that he actually cares for their well-being?

What's next for Mr. Hubbs - standing on a street corner handing out ice cream cones and lollipops along with anti-vaccine brochures with his home address and telephone number printed on the bottom?  Does he have plans to hang a "Free Candy" sign on his door?

I won't claim to have all of the answers, but clearly every parent or guardian needs to make up their own mind about what harm could come from a man capable of producing the above quotes. My personal view is that any parent who would allow their children to interact with Mr. Hubbs or any parent who takes unsolicited medical advice from Mr. Hubbs is being reckless and putting the safety and well-being of their children at risk. I also believe when a lonely, single, 50-something ex-con with multiple felonies on his record, a proven track record of interacting with men of questionable moral fortitude, and a mind full of unlimited conspiracies theories starts talking about sexual abuse and makes excuses for why he hasn't reported it to the proper authorities it seems well past time time to turn around and run, but you can decide that for yourself.

Keeping in mind the types of people that Mr. Hubbs has been known to associate with, I will leave you with a proverb which seems rather fitting:
“You may know a man by the company he keeps.”
I couldn't possibly have said it any better.


  1. You know you are lying. You know you are publishing nothing but false accusations and slander. Who's actually stupid here Costner, and you think I will give you the answers to what I know, and how I know; when you already know how I know what I know? And you are looking to publish that, you will never get it. Oh, but you know, if nothing else; in your mind its a good chance for more mockery of fact and more slander. You know what you are doing and I know exactly what I am doing. Face it. It is YOU, and only you! It is one hell of a revelation on many things that have gone on.

  2. ..."you think I will give you the answers to what I know, and how I know; when you already know how I know what I know?"...

    Is that an Abbott and Costello routine or are you hoping that makes sense? If you think I know something, then why would you be reluctant to tell me what I already know?

    You really haven't thought this one through have you Lowell? Keeping trying buddy... you'll get there eventually.
