This Saturday is World AIDS Day. In my opinion, a very good reason to publish Jack Idema's death certificate. This should be a painful reminder to everyone that AIDS is fatal, and to practice safe sex. In the United States, even if a person dies of an opportunistic infection as a result of being infected with AIDS, the cause of death typically will not say that. The cause of death will usually be complications due to pneumonia, undisclosed illness, or coronary related. Jack Idema decided in his sick, convoluted, twisted mind to take as many people he could with him while he was ill. I am HIV positive because of my stupidity and Idema's selfishness. I really thought I was ready to put all this behind me when Jack Idema died this past January. Sadly, this is not so. Recently, I have come upon information that unfortunately, for me and others, is quite tragic. I won't even begin to speculate how many more people this is also a tragedy for. When I told the individuals that I know he infected along with me; their reaction was disbelief, grief, and anger. I had always been under the impression that he had acquired HIV/AIDS in Mexico. To say that I am pissed is an understatement. I cannot fathom any reason that anyone could do this. Believe me when I say any precious moments that he & I shared that were good; have all been eradicated because of this new information. I am past mad and past shocked. Just as I thought I had a new start, again I have had the rug pulled out from underneath me. I now know that he had been positive since 2004. I can't say it enough to everyone----------use a CONDOM! One indiscretion can cause death. Just as I thought I had a new start, again I have had the rug pulled out from underneath me. He had told several people before he died that he, and members of Task Force Saber 7, were sodomized and beaten repeatedly upon their arrest in Kabul, Afghanistan on July 5, 2004. They were infected with HIV and other STD's at that time. The State Department confirms this as well. This is another reason that he turned traitor because he was willing to do anything to stop the torture. His explanation was that no matter what your sexual preference is, when it is against your will it is rape. Obviously, I was very troubled by this revelation for many reasons. I had a relationship with this man and he never told me, yet he knew the whole time. As did other individuals, involved with the whole Afghanistan drama, who I shall not name. My fault was not protecting myself in the beginning and believing him. And he was raped and suffered major pain, yet when he raped me and I filed charges that should have been a whole different scenario. It wasn't. I did tell everyone to get tested because of the activities that were taking place while I was and wasn't there. So he was HIV positive in 2004, and had a car accident on September 17, 2009, which put his immune system in full blown AIDS. In my mind, the numbers never added up properly and it always bugged me. I wanted answers but now that I have them, well, let's just say be careful of what you wish for. Hopefully, this will prove to everyone that he did, indeed, die of AIDS. The cause of death says Síndrome de inmunodeficiencia adquirida (SI DA), which means AIDS in Spanish.
Also, now that he has passed and no one is afraid of being sued or killed, people are coming out to relieve their consciences and get rid of their guilt regarding his last few months on earth. It seems that he & his beard, Elaine Roach, as well as some male guests, still were living large with the drugs. So large, that a month before he passed, the drug dealers wanted their money and were sick of waiting on it. Elaine decided to give away the decrepit jeep and a small jet ski boat to the dealers to keep them away till she could escape to Canada. She also sold 2 of his swords to get money to get a cab and a one way ticket out of Mexico. Elaine Roach bolted from CasaArabi/CasaBlanca on Friday January 6, 2012. An anonymous source who helped Elaine get her belongings out, says that she was so disgusted with Jack's lies, that she poured out all the clean water, threw out what little food was left and grabbed a small pouch of coke for the ride to the airport. The next day, Jack hobbled over to a neighbor's house, using a broomstick for a crutch, begging for water. The neighbor gave him some and said he looked like he was about to die right then and there. She said he was talking about how he thought he had swine flu and all he needed was a good antibiotic and he'd be fine. Jack was so weak by then and had ADC (AIDS dementia complex). He saw a doctor in Chetumal in early Dec. 2011, who told him that he had little time left and if there was any possible way at all, he should go back to the States to try to get some kind of relief. His answer to the doctor was that he didn't have a cent to his name and if he did, he was not going to risk the journey because he was going to wind up in jail. He gave up his citizenship and there was no free medical care for him because he was never a recognized member of any American armed forces. The death certificate says Idema died on Saturday January 21. I don't believe that to be the truth. Sources have told me that by the time the police went to CasaArabi, his body was showing significant decomposition. The odor was overwhelming, his skin was decaying and was a greenish/gray color. His face and body bloated, and the flies were everywhere, with maggots around his track marks. The last time he was seen on Skype was Monday January 16. I called him Friday January 20 and the phone just rang. Eyewitnesses tell me he was dead before Saturday January 21. The house was looted while he was dying because he was too weak to stop them. Elaine had also allowed Nina & Tinka to be taken. As I have written before, I spoke with Jack on Tuesday January 10. Obviously, I did not know all I know now. I still would have helped get Nina & Tinka to safety with Elena and David, but I would not have been so kind to him on the phone. No matter how many times I mull it over, I cannot excuse what he did to me and others. He KNEW he was positive but didn't care. He spread this virus to I couldn't even begin to imagine how many men and women. Knowingly and intentionally. And the fact that he was infected years earlier, makes it even more devastating. How many others were infected in Dubai and England (his 2 stops before Mexico)? And what about those who knew when he was released from Polacharki? How come they never said anything? In my mind, that makes them as guilty as him. The charges that I filed on July 30, 2010, were swept under the carpet. He got away with what he did to me. I said then he was infecting men and women, and no one took it seriously. Well, what about now? Doesn't say a whole lot about my government or the Mexican government. Especially my government who knew he was infected and didn't bother to extradite him here to face charges of what he did to me. The Mexican government is just as bad, when you consider the fact that he was in Mexico illegally, dealing drugs and arms, and infecting their people with a bunch of fatal viruses. Did they think he was just not worth the effort or was it that all of us that he infected was not worth the effort? I would love to have someone answer that question for me. Especially now. The death certificate proves it. Wonder what the Idema Fan Club groupies think of this. I already know what one of Idema's lawyers think, but I am curious about the others. The real shysters that stuck with Jack through thick and thin until the heat came down on them. Anyway, that is all for the next installment, which is the going to be the final one for me. I apologize in advance to anyone who might think this is an irrelevant story. Please understand that in this world of reality TV which seems to grab everyone's attention, I feel this is an important reality story that needs to be told. I cannot say it enough------everyone use a condom! AIDS does not discriminate. Homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, transgender, young, old, white, black, hispanic, male, female------------doesn't matter. HIV/AIDS loves everyone! One indiscretion can kill you. Perhaps, I can help someone not get this virus. I can't begin to ever tell anyone what this disease does to you. Medically, of course, but other areas in your life you can never get back. There is no remission, only a complete change of life. How it affects everyone close to you, and how the stigma that is attached never goes away.

 This was the boat that Elaine gave to drug dealers in exchange for money owed while Jack lay dying

Jack Idema passed away January 21, 2012.  Our last conversation was on January 10, 2012. As I have stated before, I had made 2 promises to him in that conversation.  One, involved saving Nina & Tinka, and I did that.  The second promise was to follow through with the uncompleted book that he & I were working on in Mexico. Jack knew he owed me money for the credit card debt he owed me and the medical bills he caused me.  He gave me the permission to go ahead with the copyright & do what I wanted regarding the book we were working on. I reminded him that he had given the permission a long time ago when he gave me the printed rough draft transcript along with his dog tags. Also, when he was in the hospital in September 2009, he told me to copy everything on his computer on memory sticks in case he didn’t make it then. He said now I will need to use all of it. I said yes but I was not about to go into detail of all the photos he gave me and I was not going to glorify what he & I both knew was nonsense. I would concentrate on what I knew for fact and lived with him through and I told him it was not going to be the original book he planned, rather a combination of that draft but now with Mexico added and the full truth about everything & everyone that I had encountered in his life from the beginning. As is the reason I am not mentioning names at this time.  All names will be in the book. I had started posting information on Ronbo’s blog for awhile now; so I am quite prepared. Actually, thanks to Jack’s meticulous emails and documents he copied me on, I have all the information I need. On a personal note, this will actually be easier than I had ever thought. It will also prove that the lawyers, the Idema Fan Club and Idema himself, deliberately took my life that I knew. After he passed, the Idema Fan Club wasted no time in posting lewd photos and blogs about me. They blamed me for his death; when he was the one who infected me with the disease. Jack didn’t care because he knew all of it was going to come out eventually. He was so angry with all the people that were in his life that he didn’t care what I said anymore. Jack was not only mad at his inner circle, he was also angered by 2 of the Idema Fan Club members especially. They were aggravating him big time and hanging on to him so they could cash in after his death he told me. One of them he called a dwarf bobblehead who lived off donations from an ailment that he has since he was young, and basically was a deadbeat dad that chased fame & fortune. The other one was as he called an unfortunate hag that he had sex with because he owed her for writing a blog for him. So he wasn’t perturbed when I said how I was going to treat the book he once worshipped. He knew everything I was saying to him was all the truth & he was sick & dying and said I could go after all of them via the book and tell the true story. He just wanted me to promise that I would get the rights to do it legally and not to leave anything out. He couldn’t be hurt anymore reputation wise. The stunt he pulled regarding replacing his name on the cover of The Hunt for Bin Laden, and removing Robin Moore’s, was the final nail in the coffin he said. He did because he was broke and he knew his days were numbered so it didn’t matter to him. In that phone call, he told me that in December 2011, he & two of his lawyers got into a horrible fight on the phone. The three of them had tried to extort a large sum of money from an aviation company in Georgia via email & fax. Idema had blamed them for negligence and wanted compensation for the stranded plane in Pennsylvania. He was broke and desperate so he thought this would work. It didn’t. What did happen was the complete breakdown of communication between him & the lawyers. One of them, who is now executor of his will (a phony will in probate right now), told him he didn’t care how he died he just hoped it would be soon. The other lawyer was pissed because Idema used his letterhead before checking the fact that he was suspended. That lawyer was all for it when he thought the other lawyer’s letterhead was being used. Jack told me he was fed up with all of them. They had screwed up Isabeau Dakota and was supposed to dissolve not suspend the corporation. The lawyers had done everything they knew that would eventually put them in the driver’s seat when Idema passed. It also screwed over Harvest Ministries who had rented the 450 Robeson Street building in Fayetteville, NC. Idema had assets well worth over a million dollars when his father passed in 2008. He & his lawyers managed to go through almost all of it and also made a mockery of the late elder H J Idema’s memory. All the fraud, frivolous lawsuits and lies kept mounting. In the last 2 years I have spoken & met many people who have shared their Jack stories with me. I have sorted through piles of photos, court cases, documents, videos, audios, anything and everything Idema related. I became friends with his ex, Viktoria. She has been immensely helpful in restoring my state of mind. She has convinced me that he was evil then and got worse when he was with me. Viktoria has a wonderful life now and a fantastic loving husband. She helped me separate a lot of Idema’s so called true stories and made me see the lies. The Sixth Pillar was originally, to be completed and given to Mimi Strong back in 2006.  That fell through and Jack & I were going to do it alone.  As I said earlier, while we were working on the book, I had reservations because Jack and I knew that it was exaggerated to say the least.  The emails that he wanted to include from Donald Rumsfeld & William Boykin were fraudulent and although he did write & send them, they never were replied to.  He was going to add phony responses and I was not comfortable with any of that.  He thought because The Hunt for Bin Laden was such a huge success, this follow-up book would be of the same magnitude, if not bigger. That was then but this is now. Again, I am not addressing any of this rough draft now. It is froth with superficiality that shines through the first paragraph. Not to mention some of these photos. The thing about Jack was this: he seemed to know a little something about everything or so it appeared that way. He was the undisputed king of information manipulation and was quite convincing at his game of deceit. So names, places, and the answers will all come later.
