So what does everyone think?  To me, both Mckmama and the MWOPbloggers are crazy.  Mckmama makes a blog, twitter or Facebook and instantly the MWOPBlog has a response. 

 

I must say that it does seem like Mckmama comes out smelling like a rose no matter her circumstance. 

 

Do you think Mckmama is really making decent money on her blog or should she give it up and go back to teaching?

I had never heard of her before. I just looked at both websites, sort of icky that someone would put that much time into disproving everything. It does sound as if there are some lies though. The controversies do create clicks and income though!

I found MWoP when researching monetizing blogs, quite awhile ago.  I think it was on Blogger then? Anyway, I checked in occasionally because it was pretty trainwreck-ish, but I had to stop because the insanity got to be too much for me.  Those bitches are CAH-RAY-ZEE. 1000+ comments on every post dissecting everything Mckmama does, like they are all experts or something. They sent letters to the bankruptcy court saying she lied on her paperwork because they read her blog, therefore they know everything about her. They'll post her address and shit. They've gone waaaaaay off the deep end.

If you're bored and need some amusement, the bankruptcy proceedings are up on MwoP. This is when I enjoy their crazy — someone has a PACER account and posts all of the documentation and transcripts and everything Laugh

Anyway, mckmama is completely clueless. The trustee meeting reads almost like an SNL skit or something, she's just so disconnected from reality it's almost funny.  NOT funny that 5 (4? 5?) kids are involved, the poor things have complete dumbasses for parents.

MwoP is actually a kinda scary group.  I heard some of the stuff they have done in the past was downright threatening towards the family.  It's one thing to knitpick everything a blogger does, it's another to start snooping in the kids medical records and asking nurses what actually went down (which is what seemed to be going down when I checked out the site once).

CrazyAmy – I read the transcript as I listened.  It really does sound like an SNL skit in some places.  I can't image anything so personal being posted about myself. 

 

Just a veg – The MWOPers scare me and BMM on Mckmama's Facebook scares me.  BMM is a fan of Mckmama's and wrote a 100+ page manifesto and sent it to the bankruptcy trustee trying to defend it her.  Really though, it was a blueprint to all of Mckmama's lies.  In the hearing, the trustee practically quotes BMM.

 

The MWOPers are convinced that Mckmama is going to jail.  Honestly, I can't gloat about a mom with 5 kids going to jail. 

 

It's weird.  Mckmama can't post ANYTHING without the naysayers jumping on it.  If Mckmama says the sky is blue, they find a weather report in Minnesota that says it's cloudy.  Meanwhile, Mckmama is making a decent income from blogging!  I think MWOP helps her income because people go back and forth between the two sites.

Oh honey most of the regular MWOPers are lovely people, who are really caring and funny.  We just hate lying liars who lie and make money from it while posing as Christian experts on food, money, child care, marriage, animal husbandry, medicine, home education, photography….

Jennifer McKinney will be incredibly lucky if she does not get jail time for trying to fraud the government. You can hear the lies and deception direct from her mouth.

The public record/audio of her bankruptcy is http://mwopblog.com/wp-content/uploads/mp3/341_Meeting_Redacted.mp3.

Also, I am not an MWOPer. I have never posted there. I followed MckMama on BlogFrog for years, but just dropped interest as my own life took me away from following. It wasn't until other BlogFroggers mentioned there was a possibility of jail time that I went to go look. The transcript was alarming, but anyone can type something up and pass it as truth.

 

The audio recording? That was really not good.

 

I saw somewhere today that Pete Rose the baseball player went to jail for months for just $35,000 he didn't claim on his taxes. The McKinney's total amount unclaimed is a lot more than that.

So what's the deal with this woman? She totally knew that was all taxable income and she had to pay on it, right? She just chose not to? In the transcript it sounds like she's trying to play dumb "I didn't know cars were assets, I didn't know PayPal was considered a bank account!" but I'm guessing if she made that much money off a blog she's somewhat savvy or at least a proficient liar. I don't read her so I don't know that much about it but the transcript seems shady as hell. I also can't decide if the MWOPers are lunatics or what because I know how infuriating it can be to see some asshole parade their asshole self on the Internet.

I don't know what to think.  On the one hand, I'm not sure she's smart enough to intentionally commit fraud.  On the other hand, who in the world doesn't think about paying taxes? Girlfriend should have hired an accountant.

I think mwop has gone beyond just protesting about an asshole.  They actively encouraged sending letters to the bankruptcy trustee.  I just cannot imagine being so invested in someone online that I send a letter to a court accusing someone of fraud.  These aren't people that know her offline, these are people that had read her blog for a long time and feel like they know everything about her.  It's creepy on multiple levels — it's creepy that they are so invested they would actually contact the court, and it's really fucking creepy that they know all these personal details about her, like her Paypal account balance.

(IM=husband JM=wife TR=bankruptcy trustee)

IM:     I don’t know. The only thing I can say is that I thought I bought the, uh, ring for $3,500.

JM:     Okay.

IM:     And I have no idea what the value of the diamond is inside.

TR:     The ring itself?

JM:     Right, without the diamond.

TR:     The engagement ring.

IM:     Yeah.

TR:     Was $3,500?

IM:     She seemed worth it.
