Lowell Hubbs Caught Lying Yet Again

Recently, during one of his many rants claiming that "hackers" were responsible for messing with his blogger account, Mr. Hubbs repeated his claims about mystery blog posts randomly appearing on this blog.  He has mentioned this type of thing in the past, and Hubbs has a well known history of accusing "black hat hackers" of manipulating websites, hacking his email and mobile phone, and even installing "undetectable video cameras" to monitor his every move.

Thus, when Mr. Hubbs makes such a claim I file it in the mental recycle bin since I'm fairly certain these mystery hackers exist nowhere outside of Mr. Hubbs' own perverted mind.  That said, during one of his latest rants, I mentioned it might be a good idea for Mr. Hubbs to capture a screenshot of these supposed shenanigans so he could actually have some proof to support his claims.  In response to my statement, a few short days later I had this comment waiting for me from none other than Mr. Hubbs himself:

"I have a screen shot picture of your blogs latest findings. It may be there by use of an external hack script because it comes and goes, however that is unknown. The previous to this changed images were derogatory in your direction; this one being the opposite. My blogger account was hacked into about 2 pm today Sunday so will not be using that to reply, just in case they are in your account. If you have any replies that use my blogger account after that time today, you may be well advised that it was not me." ~Lowell Hubbs
In case you are curious, here is the image that Mr. Hubbs hosted in his photobucket account:

To a casual observer this would seem pretty amazing.  Mr. Hubbs clearly has a screenshot of this very blog with not only a portion of a blog post which has never been published here, but also a completely new blog title which includes a splash of profanity.  However, if you look beyond the surface, Mr. Hubbs' story starts to fall apart.

First, there are a few things that scream "red flag" on this little image.  If you look at the blog shown on this image and compare it to the template currently in use on this blog you will note a number of differences.  Text locations are different and fonts seem to vary.  Another strange issue is that within the image Mr. Hubbs provided, the blogger bar that appears at the top of all blogger blogs is somehow not present.  Are we to believe that these "hackers" somehow decided they didn't want that bar to appear and therefore removed it? 

The background image is also clipped resulting in one of the birds losing its head even though the scrollbar appears to be at the top of the page.  So is this merely a horrible cut and paste hack job, or is Mr. Hubbs trying to hide something?

Then there are the fine details.  What about that dotted line around the blog post?  That doesn't match the real blog.  The title text of Mr. Hubbs' version includes the semicolon directly after the last name "Hubbs" rather than a space between the two.  There is excess space between the title and the subtitle areas.  The post title is shown in black text rather than the red which is part of the real blog template.  The font sizes vary between the two.  Then there is the fact that the only blog post seen (we can only see the title) shows a posted date on the very same date that Mr. Hubbs captured the screenshot and the same day he left his comment.

Taken a step further, we can see the telltale signs of someone who lacks any grammatical knowledge including the overuse of exclamation points.  We see run-on sentences and misspelled words and a sentence structure which mirrors the broken and fractured writing style of Mr. Hubbs himself.

I also find it interesting that if you glance at the taskbar you will notice a blue and white icon which shows an active application.  That same icon appears on the right hand side of the screen in a tab, as well as in the system tray near the clock.  So what is that application you might ask?  It is called "TeamViewer" and the presence of the TeamViewer application suggests Mr. Hubbs is either controlling another remote computer, or he is allowing his computer to be remote controlled. 

Sort of makes you wonder if Mr. Hubbs is trying to cover his tracks now doesn't it?  Perhaps he isn't capable of actually editing screenshots himself so he asked a friend to help - either way you must admit it seems a bit suspicious.

Add to the fact that the RSS feed for this blog doesn't show any new blog posts on November 20th.  This includes the RSS feed itself, and a RSS viewer that doesn't allow content removal... meaning if there was a blog post added to this blog I would surely have a record of it.  I suppose those "black hat hackers" must have hacked my RSS readers and RSS feed too right?  Not likely.

I note I didn't receive an alert that any content was added to the blog like I normally would, I didn't get a notification a new post was added, I never witnessed any of these mysterious changes to the template layout, I didn't even get an email about the new post... all things that would have occurred if a new post was actually added to this blog, and all things Mr. Hubbs couldn't fake since he doesn't have my contact information.

Am I really supposed to believe that someone would hack this blog, add content, totally change the entire blog template including titles, subtitles, fonts, sizes, colors, text placements etc... and then quickly remove all of the changes before I happen to notice?  Does that seem at all logical?

However the best part is that when Mr. Hubbs created this little image and then pasted it on top of the actual blog page in order to make it appear it was hosted on this blog he made one very fatal error.  He forgot to change the tab on his browser window to match the fabricated blog title he pasted in the window - and these two items cannot be unlinked within blogger, thus if the title doesn't match the browser tab... the image is a FAKE

If you look closely, you will note the URL shown in the browser bar is the actual URL to this blog and the title of the tab is the original (correct) blog title... right down to the space before and after the colon, yet Mr. Hubbs failed to modify the tab to match the title he created on the blog page itself, which proves once again that Mr. Hubbs will resort to blatant lies and fabrication in support of his agenda.

The saddest part of Mr. Hubbs little fraud here is that he actually had to create that blog page on one of his blogs just long enough to publish it and capture a screenshot.  That means he not only wrote those things about himself, but he actually published them!  I have to ask... what type of demented soul writes those types of things about himself and takes the time to cut and paste a fake image together just so he can try and make it appear his crazy stories have some merit?  It sort of reminds me of Rathergate, but not nearly as well done.

Sorry Mr. Hubbs - it was a nice effort... but once again you've been busted and proven to be a liar and a complete fraud.  When will you learn?

Andrew Moulden: Even More Quackery

I have discussed Andy Moulden at few times in the past (see here and here), but considering the number of visits these pages receive in any given week I felt it was my moral obligation to share a bit more about Mr. Moulden and his "miracle treatments". 

The following information was taken directly from Moulden's "brainguard" website before he took it down (or perhaps before he was forced to take it down).

Originally found at: (website no longer available):

Due to the overwhelming response to our services, we will not be able to offer these services for free anymore. There are certain costs associated with diagnosing people who have neurological damage, and we need to be able to cover these expenses. For those that have already received our services please comment on our Brain Blog, so others know that we know the who what why and when your child has been affected.

Sorry for the inconvenience
Dr Andrew Moulden BA, MA, MD, PhD
As you may already know if you have read the previous posts about Moulden, his "services" include performing diagnoses on patients based upon a cursory review of photographs and/or videotape.  Now I'm not suggesting that anyone should work for free, but if you are going to charge for a service, it stands to reason the service you are charging for should be legitimate, and diagnosing neurological disorders from afar based upon nothing other than a photograph is far from legitimate.  Is there really any wonder why Moulden was shut down?

It gets even better however.  Care to take a guess on what Moulden was charging for his "services"?  Fear not as there is no need to guess.  Moulden actually disclosed the fees right on his website:

$416 for the basic analysis of 2 videos and 4 photos, i.e a form email reply.

Forensic Proof Causation
Limited Medical review and direct phone contact, history with an M.D.
$2500 CDN

Help FIX My Vaccine Injured Brain
Limited Medical review and direct phone contact, history with an M.D.
- If we don't help "fix" the problem you don't pay
- Includes before/after scanning and assessment to document and quantify intervention success.
- Voluntary services 100% Biocompatible (no synthetic drugs)!
$5000 CDN

EMERGENCY BrainGuard Scanning
Continuous Streaming Video BrainGuard Scanning
$10,000 CDN
So basically the fees range from a bit over $400 for Moulden to glance at a child's pictures or video, to $10,000 Canadian to perform an "EMERGENCY" BrainGuard Scan.  You know that must be worth it though, because he took the time to ensure the term "EMERGENCY" was written in all caps.

I have to wonder how many people fell for this little sales pitch and how much money Moulden actually made before he was shut down by the Canadian government.  It seems not only is he using unconfirmed diagnostic tools that he appears to have invented himself, and that he is diagnosing children with ailments he has also invented himself, but it also seems as if he was attempting to practice medicine without a license. 

Of course the fun doesn't end there.  On top of the fees disclosed above, Moulden was also engaging in what can only be described as a real-estate scam.  Moulden was pushing people from his website to buy what he labeled an "AMassNetwork IMAM-12 membership".  This additional membership was required before any BrainGuard services could be ordered, so I assume the cost for this membership would be in addition to the costs disclosed above.  The only place to get the membership was at another one of Moulden's websites ( which like his other websites is no longer available) however I was unable to locate any information on what this membeship would cost.

Moulden did however share this little gem:
IMAM-12 membership entitles you for up to 1% (buy/sell) off real estate sales brokers fees across more than 40 countries (this equates to $3000 on a 300,000 property).
I would love to explain the relationship between neurological disorders, snakeoil medical treatments, and discounts on real estate broker fees.... but honestly I have no idea what the connection would be.  This would equate to a Cardiologist telling you that if you undergo a cardiac stress test in their office you will be entitled to $8 off an oil change at any Toyota dealership.  There just isn't any relation between the two offers and any self proclaimed "doctor" who uses such sales gimicks should be ashamed of themselves.

Then again, if these people were capable of shame, websites and unscientific claims such as these wouldn't exist in the first place.
