The Judge

My lawyer just brought a judge to the jail and the judge issued a stay order until a higher judge can review the case.  This effectively stops Immigration from returning me to the Belize border.

So….. the urgency is eased a bit.

    This reminds me of a time when one country jailed a group of hackers…. called Anonymous.

    In times like this, Anonymous would undoubtedly use it’s power to reveal the corruption that dwells within our governments.

    It’s sad. I wish Anonymous was around to help you like when they collectively tarnished the image of Statfor.

    There’s not much most of us, your supporters can do for you but keep glued to our computers and know to stay away from Belize. I hope you make it back to America or Canada safely.

    If anything happens-such as death, Hollywood will probably produce a film about you, it’s inevitable. With the press from Joe Rogan to Vice to the local and national networks–you’re story is a real life James Bondish, Bourne Identity, and Iron man hybrid… then you would still be the winner because you’re message would expand beyond your intent. Hopefully this isn’t the case because many of us are rooting for you.

    I wish you all the best – best of luck. Be smart.

    Please get help John Mcafee before it is to late. I believe you just need to be in safe place with good medical care and have a good attorney to handle things till you get back on your feet. Don’t be afraid!! Look at this as a turning point in your life and give yourself that chance to recover.

    Sorry, my last comment however they are novt being posted anyway. John, if you truely want to prove tha danger of your return to Belize And how they have persecuted you, it seems that now is the time to release this information before they send you back. Perhaps that may have some weight as I believe that sadly our emails do not. The president of Guatemala, who I even wrote a “polite” message to on his Facebook page, has said that he goes along with decision to send you back because you have been pictured with heavy arms, quoted from the article in the Belizian Times yesterday.

    Good luck, do not panic, use your best mind and your best strategies and above all remain calm and strong.

    At this point I hope that John gets deported to the US. Seems that I read a comment by Mr. Martinez that they are actually holding something back. I think the simple questioning in Belize may turn into an arrest. On what basis, or facts I do not know, but one thing I can say, the cops are not going to give away what they may have until they have John. So, it seems they may have already figured out what the strategy is, and they are playing it well. I see this ending poorly if John is returned to Belize. If he is in the States however, I do not know if there is an extradition treaty with the US and Belize. It would be a fight either way, until the Police in Belize loose patience, and either clear John, or charge him. I think the fact they (Belize Police) are not saying anything until they talk to him gives me the answer.

    It appears that all these star reporters that John so trustingly took in confidence, CNN, London Financial Times, Vice, Joe Rogan, etc, have now abandoned him when he needs them most. Journalism has become disgustng. Very sad. Best of luck John.

    Why don’t you go ahead & release the documents to the world press? If they are as damning as you say, then Guatemala will give you asylum. If the corruption shows that officials of the government have threatened you, then let the world know. It makes no sense not to do it now. Isn’t the corruption the reason for all of this?

    I just exited Great America Parkway, and passed the building that once was headquarters for MFE. Although the building currently hangs a leasing sign, across the street, stands the new headquarters for McAfee, tall and proud displaying your software legacy.

    Much like these buildings, stand tall and proud for the work that you contributed to society. The world is a better place with you, and other pioneers that impact all of our lives on a daily basis. You still have work to do or contributions to make. Hang in there, tune out the noise, and stay focused on the end goal.

    I understand you, I worked in Investor Relations for several years, supporting a CEO/CFO for a major software company here in the Silicon Valley. Although not PR, many of the tactics are parallel, conference calls, targeting, talking points …

    With this in mind, a few points:
    – Myself and several colleagues within the financial community, have emailed Belize Officials, demanding release of your friends since they are being held without any charges of substance.
    – Remain consistent in your talking points and stick with 3-5 main ones based on the facts or proof. For example, you have audio of a former and current employee discussing either framing or harming you. These people should be considered “people of interest” in Faull’s murder.
    – The word is out now, select or target specific audiences and delivery of your key points. 
    – Remain calm, collected, and low maintenance. Don’t spook the Guatemalan Officials, they too don’t want themselves highlighted or exposed. You may be considered a risky person, who is too outspoken to keep around.
    – Please seek legal counsel from more than one attorney, preferably a woman latina.
    -We will email the President of Guatemala
    -If there is anything that you need, including cash, don’t hesitate.

    Best Regards to You and Sam!

    We pray and hope for a solution to your case asap and send you healing and positive vibes from FL. When times get rough, one must continue to do good, karma will not forget your present.
    But on another note, as you must also direct your energy towards creating positive things in life, we are seeking for an angel investor to develop a Green School in Guatemala that would integrate Green Studies and Sciences, Spiritual and experiential learning to the common academic curriculum. It should be available to locals and foreigners and should promote a society and economy based on self-sustainability.
    At this time, we believe your support is beneficial to your current situation as this project creates the opportunity to give something of value back to the local Guatemalan community.
    Watch the video to gain a better understanding of this kind of education.

    And as you had indicated earlier about document releases, I would do it anyway to get Belize fixed if it is broken so bad, and just answer those pesky questions from the Belizean authorities. You now have such an audience, that you would not be harassed at home anymore. You can go back and stay low profile and let the peace begin.

    I diligently emailed as you asked and now the blog post asking for support has disappeared. Comments were off and now they are on. It is frustrating to believe you and even put my name on an email asking for the powers that be to consider granting you asylum and to then see everything erased. Even if, in the end, as I suspect you will, expose the injustices you have experienced- is it worth manipulating your own supporters?

    The people of Belize are nice but their government is dangerous and disgusting. I’ve read too many stories of expats getting their stuff jacked or mugged or life threatened.

    I believe the government of Belize works hand in hand with the mafia and local gangsters.

    I was wondering if Mr. McAfee or his lawyer(s) would approve of his supporters organizing protests outside the Guatemalan and/or Belizean embassies.

    Anyway, you are welcome in Indonesia if someday you decide to visit this archipelago. 🙂

    All’s well that ends well & what is supposed to be, will be. I just cannot understand why he won’t answer the questions about the murder. Am I missing something? If he has evidence of persecution & corruption, why can’t he show it to them & prove he has a right for asylum? Please, just show them the proof & then you can stay in Guatemala. I don’t see why you haven’t done this, but wishing you the best. It seems there is a solution, but you have decided against it. Asylum is a serious matter & just saying that a country has done these things, without a clear reason for doing them (the raids), is not enough. Maybe Guatemala does not want to be involved. I’d go back to Belize, answer their questions, pack up & leave. Confused in Australia.

    Indeed. And if I enetr Belize unwillingly, it will all be released. The evidence is in a trust that has inviolate conditions. One condition, just implemented, is that all documentation will be released to the world press upon my involunatary return. I cannot stop it or change it. “Protection Trusts”, they are called. I’d love to but dinner for whoever invented them. Actually, I believe the first incarnation of Protection Trusts were “Asset Protection Trusts” – APTs. Oddly, Belize is one of the world’s largest producers of APTs.

    By the way; do not know how true it is: heard you left the United States due to tax reason; however, if that is false, then I extend you and yours an opportunity to really experience life in the United States. I live in a small county and can guarantee that no one will recognize you, nor care, Lots of land available right on the Chesapeake Bay!

    I was wondering what happened to my last post. It didn’t get posted! . John, I know you are getting some much needed rest and continue to do so. Just saw CNN’s report and ABC’s. The woman anchor could not even pronounce your name correctly. Hoping and praying this day will be better for you and standing with you~

    Glad to hear that you are out. I will keep praying for you! Seems that someone, someplace has it out for you, and doing what they can tp make life hard, There are a lot of people out here that support you, I, for one! Hang in there and fight as long as it takes! The truth will prevail.
    On the other hand, I know that Sam and you have a good relationship. And I know this will piss people off; but please think about what you are getting ready to do. She is but a child, and everything that you two have been together, she has looked at it as an adventure. I should know; (like Sam); I got involved with someone old enough to be my father. We has an adventure and I was introduced to a higher standard of living. Much like Sam. He gave me experiences that I would have never had. Eventually, our age difference got to be too much and we decided to go our separate ways.
    When I look at Sam I see myself; please just enjoy the present, take everyday one day at a time, but don’t commit to a future. It is something that none of us can control.
    By the way; I have had three of my males friends decided to marry women much younger: 25 years plus and the longest one lasted seven years, and she fought the prenup!

    That’s something at least. I’ve been following your story closely and am disgusted by what’s happened to you. Your animals slaughtered and then framed for a murder…. no words >.< Keep your voice out there. All eyes are on you and it will have a profound influence on what's occuring right this minute in the political back channels. Stay strong John. All the best from Australia.

    I think you have a case to answer for, im failing to understand why an innocent person would seek assylum when you are not even a suspect. I guess money wont buy you everything.

    Even with the relatively obscure legal conventions of central america in mind I wouldn’t have expected the guatemalan administration to dare sending you back to Belize. The only legal basis for repatriation – if one finds it opportune to use this term – would be certainly the US. After all, you didn’t came to Guatemala floating on a door. Due to the enormous publicity your case has generated during the last week, I think you’re quite save from any form licentiousness for now. I wish you luck and steady nerves for the next days. Yours, from Germany,

    Yo dude can you get your passport back from your attorney or has it become apart of the evidence that will secure a bounty and a Kings Ransom in Guatemala? I hear there may be footage circulated that would imply that you may have been set up from the get go……..

    No way man. They can’t throw you to the lions like some slave in the roman coliseum. Hopefully your legal council will shed light on your plight and shake sense into the Guatemalan authorities. Best to take to rest so that you are ready for the press conference tomorrow.

    I worked in Belize last year for 6 months. The amount of corruption from authorities is horrible. I can only imagine what you went through, and I am sure you must feel safer at a Guatemalan jail, than at your own home in Belize. I hope they do not send you back and I believe you are not paranoid. You are just too smart. These people are horrible and behave like a cult. May your problems be resolved soon.

    Following your case for a while now John,
    hoping that the truth in all comes to light. I believe that God can bring good to come to pass, where evil was meant originally, and what matters, is that Love conquers all, and only God can judge in the end. (At Christmas again, is His eternal message of Grace for those that need Him). His plan for you I pray you find, you are loved.

    Awesome news John! Sit tight it wont be long! Youve done the best thing ever by keeping this and yourself in the spotlight and the WORLD is watching!
    On a side note, the “Boycott Belize” button doesnt work and hasnt since I started watching and following your story. I think it is a very good idea to show the powers that be the number of people who are aware of the problems and saftey risks involved in their country. What about doing an online petition that could actually shows the number of people who are being made aware of this?
    Best wishes!

    GUATEMALA CITY: Guatemalan police arrested U.S. software guru John McAfee on Wednesday for illegally entering the country and said it would expel him to neighboring Belize, which he fled after being sought for questioning over his neighbor’s murder.

    McAfee, who had been in hiding for three weeks, crossed into Guatemala with his girlfriend, Samantha, to evade authorities in Belize who wanted to question him as “a person of interest” about the killing of fellow American Gregory Faull.

    “He entered the country illegally and we are going to seek his expulsion for this crime,” Interior Minister Mauricio Lopez Bonilla said.

    Guatemala government spokesman Francisco Cuevas said McAfee would be expelled to Belize and he expected the process to be completed by early Thursday morning.

    Five in a bed at night sounds uncomfy but kudos if you can satisfy all or rather keep them happy.

    So your a one women man now? Not important, I know, just curious. I read a Wise article where he quoted you saying you would give up your freedom for one women for the rest of your life. Not in those word but I got the gist. Irrelevant… Like the purpose of this blog??

    Good luck fellow American. Production at the office has gone down due to refreshes.

    I’m gonna need you to focus, John, get some bfast and get ready., I was trying to contact you in 1996, used my website that I registered in 1996 and was stalked to UK in 1998… I could help if you can help, I’m more than tired,…. they are hiding the fact that a native american negro latin boy was the first to register and develop and run and found, so be careful, because it will get stickier before it gets okay.
