    Joey,Presley,Brannon dont sign this crap stupid shit from those filth people that started it against all of you first,this is just the filth feces stuff idiots do

  3. Yo Yo

    Yawn. Seems like the harassment is coming from B and BF. When their names are brought up, they have a right to respond. If you guys shut the fuck up about any of them, maybe they would leave you alone. I think B and BF both need harassment charges filed against them instead.

    • brrandy

      I had not mentioined his name on blog or radio for two months until his little girlfriend starts texting me and calling me a liar on two blogs regarding a private convetrsation we had on the phone. I blocked both of them on my cell phone. And then they came online to trash me. So yawn yawn yawn this is his game, problem is, he taught me how to play too.

  4. newsflash@allthenewsthatsfittoprint.com

    Only thing Joey is gonna be signing is the Inmate check-in form Daddy Dauben. Will you be seeing your boy in prison? He’s sure gonna be the purdy boy on the cell block. No, I would say Joey started it. While starting things he couldnt handle, he had to diddle a teen boy or two. Now Daddy Dauben can see Joey “gotta pretty mouth” Dauben in state prison LOL


    Newsflash, I am assuming you have been in prison and enjoy “pretty mouthed” boys, or simply enjoy boys. I mean I wouldn’t know what another guy is attracted to, but you certainly do! So you must be speaking from experience! I personally don’t find Joey sexy, but you must see a side of him I haven’t. Now be a good little and go sit in the corner and BE QUIET before I have to bitchslap you!!!!!


    Brandy has her big girl panties on! She knows how to play games. What kind of games do you play? I personally like duck duck gooses and red light green light, how about you?


    This is really want Newflash wanted to say to Joey…
    It’s hard to look right,
    at you baby,
    but here’s my number,
    so call me, maybe?

  8. Cheri L. Dauben

    I have kept up with all the blogs since the beginning of this ordeal and listened in on some of Barbara Farris/Brandy Owen’s recent radio shows. I have reserved comment all along, not knowing who “out there” to trust or believe. However, after listening to comments on the show, I decided to make a one time statement.
    Brandy stated that my mother (Joey’s grandmother) told her that Joey had “ruined her credit.” After the show, I spoke with my mother and she stated that she never had this conversation with Brandy or anyone else for that matter. To this day, she has perfect credit.
    I found out on Facebook that Joey had been arrested. (not by Brandy and not that it is a big issue, but it was mentioned on the radio show.) After hearing the news, our family’s immediate concern was to get in touch with my mother, who had just come out of the hospital after hip surgery. She was NEVER left without food or water as stated on the radio show.
    The most recent BF/Brandy radio show mentioned how Joey should be charged with “elder abuse” for letting his grandmother lie on the floor after her fall. Joey immediately informed his uncles and me of her fall. My mother told us she was fine. We pleaded with her to get checked out, but she refused. After Joey’s persistence that she was not okay, it was a family decision to call an ambulance for her. When the paramedics arrived, my mother refused to let them take her to the hospital. My brother drove up from Houston and my daughter and I made two trips to her house before convincing this independent, yet stubborn, 81-year-old woman to get to the doctor. Joey’s first concern in jail was not concerning his arrest, but of his grandmother. He even asked the arresting officers to please check on her and they complied by sending a Henderson County officer to her home.
    My mother told me that she had two phone conversations with Brandy since Joey’s arrest. My mother called Brandy late the night after the arrest asking her if she knew where Joey was, as she was not informed he was arrested…only that he was going to talk with the officers. When he did not return home, she became concerned.
    Another time, Brandy called wanting to pick up Joey’s computer from my mother’s home. My mother informed her that she would only release his property to his parents. Brandy’s response was that she would get in touch with Joey’s sister. My mother told her that there was no reason to do that because she would only release it to his parents and it would be up to us to decide what to do with it.
    Keep in mind that this was after Brandy herself discussed online that she would be in control of The Ellis County Observer if something were to ever happen to Joey. She also admitted to accessing all of his archived e-mails, etc. Too, I was told by people that she was contacting them on his Facebook friend’s list seeking information, while she ran her own “mini investigation.” Comments on his Facebook were also being “liked” from someone other than family members by someone who had access to his passwords while he was in jail. I have tried to be fair to Brandy, as there were a lot of “rumors” out there about her. (example: Joey accusing Brandy of stealing $8,000 from his bank accounts. Joey did not believe that nor did any of his family because Joey didn’t have $8, much less $8,000 in the bank.) All of this kept me guarded with her. I do know that Joey asked Brandy numerous times to return to his parents and family property (Netbook; Adobe InDesign software; flash drive with original newspaper files; T-Mobile BlackBerry with charger) and passwords. To date, Brandy has refused to return the property.
    This was also well before the hosting package on The Ellis County Observer expired. The family wanted the passwords to pay for the renewal of the packaging; Brandy refused to comply with those requests, and subsequently, two weeks later, on Jan. 19, a grand jury indicted Joey and on Jan. 25, the State seized EllisCountyObserver.com, as well as AmberHagerman.org, HaileyDunn.org and The Odessa Observer (TheOdessaO.com.) By renewing the packaging, we could have salvaged all of the articles and content. The family did not want The Ellis County Observer, but only to keep all of this out of the hands of people who should not have had access to it and may have their own reasons for tampering with it.
    The issues concerning my mother are “little issues” in the midst of much bigger ones. However, if Barbara Farris and Brandy are going to “distort” the facts on them, chances are they will on the bigger issues as well.
    I do not know Barbara Farris, never talked to her and never will. I personally have no issues with her except for the fact that she offered to help Joey and instead of getting in touch with the family in a professional manner, we all read her reasoning for discontinuing his case on Facebook, along with Brandy’s commentary. That was a good enough reason for me to steer clear of them! (For the record, I am sure I could find pictures of Joey dying his hair black after high school) It was not to cover up for “his crime,” as stated on Barbara Farris’ Facebook profile and the June 1st radio show.
    In closing, I do not believe Joey is guilty of the Navarro County charges. I have seen nothing in his past that would indicate he was capable of committing this crime. I know he has written things that have ticked people off, but he believes what he writes. I don’t always agree with him and I tell him so. I do believe he is being set up, but remain hopeful that he can get a fair trial. I believe Presley Crowe has her own issues with Barbara Farris and Brandy, and from what I know of her, she is very much her own person. I think Brannon’s videos are stupid and tasteless and have told him so, but there are other qualities that Brannon possesses that I like. I believe Patrick Wilson and others have reasons to want to shut Joey up. I, too, wanted him to do so at times. I do not know Patrick Wilson. All I know of him is the way his office has managed Joey’s case and what I have read on the Ellis County Tea Party Facebook page and Topix message forums concerning not needing to debate Rodney Ramsey because he has the support of the “political machine” in Ellis County. When Patrick Wilson did not deny that he said had the “political machine” supporting him, this indicates to me an “establishment” in Ellis County exists.
    I know Patrick Wilson is fighting his claim for indigency for the appeal in the EllisCountyObserver.com seizure case. By taking The Ellis County Observer, he denied Joey his usual means of financial support. He cannot live at home due to the restrictions on his bond, as we live across from a church. It is difficult to find a job with these pending charges, therefore, his dad and I pay for his housing, groceries, fuel and other necessities. We will continue to do so until after the trial and would not help him to this extent if we did not believe in his innocence.
    There are days our family jokes about changing our last names in this county. But for now, we are united in our strength as the Dauben family, relying on our faith and support of family and friends.

  9. Disgusted

    go figure a “MINI INVESTIGATION” when asking someone to put their neck on the line. No wonder where the blameshifting insanity comes from. Ask Joey if we shoulod go “Terri Stoddard” on Cheri Dauben. Little fuck is a piece of shit.

  10. Just Sayin'

    Well “Disgusted”, name calling rarely solves anything and shows a lack of factual argument. I was frankly glad to see Cheri’s version of events. The fact that one of these people is in jail, and the other is not, also speaks volumes. But then again, our justice system is rarely about truth, that’s why it’s called “JUST US”. Oddly enough MVZ’s family believes her insanity from time to time despite having had her involuntarily committed before and her numerous crimes against people whose only offense was to believe her and try to help. Family always wants to believe their own, it’s just plain ‘ole human nature. There are always two sides of a story. it does seem somewhat suspicious the timing of these charges against Joey. Kind of like MVZ calling “rape” after months of consensual sex for legal fees (can we spell “prostitution”?), which came right after she was criminally charged with property damage . So she has a criminal charge against her and decides to make one right back. She was so charged after revealing that a lawyer had illegally filed a case and set it for hearing with no notice and showed up as a witness. Some would call that “tit for tat”, where no one is telling the truth!

    • nothingbettertodotoday

      I agree with you re: once somebody starts name calling or has an irrational anger it means they have run out of viable argument to support their position. I was glad to see Cheri’s version too. She seems like a good mom, she’s supportive and protecting her son, at the same time she’s as honest as she can be about him..

      I disagree that timing of the charges is suspicious. It doesn’t make sense to me that the charges just came out of the blue. I recall that Brandy confirmed my thoughts as somewhere I read or heard Brandy say that the Navarro charges had been in the works for a while before the indictment (I think she said several years). At the time of his arrest, it was obvious that the charges did not surprise Joey. I’d bet my next pay check that Joey became aware of the potential for charges about the same time he became so interested, and loud, in attempting to bust porno rings and child molesters. I recall posts in which Joey called a teenage female victim of molester a “whore” and indicated she had some how deserved the abuse. I was just “Disguested” at the time but now this looks like a defensive reaction to charges Joey knew were coming. Re: Ellis County charges, there’s little doubt in my mind that this was an effort to shut Joey down but I understand that effort. Joey’s posts had crossed a line, if not in violation of a criminal statute, they were at very least slanderous, unfair and incited violence.

  11. “t-mobile blackberry and charger” he gave me that blackberry going on 2 1/2 years ago and it had NO charger. I bought a new charger like a year after he gave it to me. The stupid thing was buried in junk paper in a cabinet in my laundry room for nearly a year. I bought the charger it worked for a while, then the battery swelled up and had to buy a new one of those.

    Long gone, traded in for a different used blackberry. And her mother did in fact have that conversation with me, how would I even know the lady has always had good credit if she didn’t tell me? I know I have heard of Cheri accusing her mother of being senile. That is why grandma didn’t want me telling anyone Joey had been arrested because her children would insist she should not be living alone. And if Margaret really said those things Joey printed about me, then she is just being a mean old bag. Margaret and I had a good relationship, hours and hours of visiting and talking about life, Jesus, Canada (where she is from) I would tell her I loved her and was glad to have her as a friend, even after hearing the same 30 minute story for the 3 time and she would tell me she loved me.

    So if she didn’t say those things Joey printed about me, then he is trying to hurt me.

    Cheri didn’t have to be apprehensive about me, I was very upfront with her on our last phone conversation telling her that I had been doing some digging and I quote, “I want to be on his side, but it is just not looking good.”

    I gave the passwords to Shelby when they were requested and Shelby said she wrote them in a letter to Joey and never mailed it. As for the hosting, Brannon and I were on the phone together trying to log in to the account REPEATEDLY to renew the hosting, both of us tried every combination password we had for Joey’s stuff and we COULD NOT log in and pay the hosting. Besides Cheri told me SHE wanted the ECO shut down and Dad Dauben said, ‘if it goes down, it goes down.’

    At least that is what Shelby told me.

    Please GOd grant me the power to subpoena my phone records for the last six months

  12. I do admit that I should give him back his software and flash drive. Those are the only two things he ever gave me with the pretense the items should be returned to him.

    But there isn’t really anything on the flash drives just a few random pics of newspaper stuff. I will mail them to someone but I am not driving it to Red Oak like I have been asked to do. I am busy and I am tired of my life revolving around Joey Dauben’s disaster.

    I know it is hard for a mother and family to deal with a situation such as this one. I am sympathetic, but I am also very angry at him for using me the way he did.

    I am sick and tired of people stating they are being “patient” with me. I AM being patient. If I did not know you or Margaret, you two would be getting slammed Joey Dauben style. And EVERYTHING would be online.

    That is a good question above about Terri Stoddard.

    If I remember correctly, her son had never even been accused of the things Joey publicly convicted him of and then posting their pictures. Her son has a family, with daughters and that WHOLE conversation Joey posted was out of context and never let her defend her side on something she shouldn’t of having been attacked on.

    So ask Joey if I should treat you, like he treated Terri Stoddard.

    So if he wants the $10 I got for the trade in on the blackberry, I will make a list of what he owes me prior to being “fired”. I will cut him a break and just charge $7 per hour, and we will just call it 200 hours, that would just about cover December and half of January.

    You know I had always stated that I didn’t think the potential punishment fits the crime. I was thinking that a week in the stocks and public humiliation, you know rotten tomatoes and stuff, but if we let the coliseum decide, then prison rape it is.

    I just feel so sad for him. I think he is a scared little boy. I feel very scared for him, but I am angry.

    I think, according to things Joey has told me, he was molested as a child, more than once, and he is retarded in a child-like state. So there it is, Joey is a retarded kid, in the most technical sense.

    “Were you ever molested or raped as a kid?”
    “I think maybe, I think my ______________ molested me but I don’t exactly remember.”

  13. Cheri Dauben

    I am sure that my mother did tell you at some point that she had perfect credit…she has always been quite proud of that fact. She disputes having a conversation with you or anyone else that Joey “ruined” her credit. There is a difference.

    I do remember speaking with you about why Joey lived with his grandmother. She wanted to continue living on her own and her children wanted her to consider moving in with one of us. Because of her age, we wanted to ensure that she was mentally and physically able to live alone. Having Joey live with her was our compromise. That is a far cry from calling my mother senile. This is another distortion of the facts.

    I also dispute that you had a conversation with me about “wanting to be on his side, yet you had been doing some digging and it did not look good.” I first found out how you felt on Barbara’s FACEBOOK, then OTHER PEOPLE started telling me that you were digging.

    It really does not matter anyway. The whole situation is what it is…

  14. b

    I have got enough on Joey i don’t have to make stuff up Cheri. And if you are saying that we did not have a conversation about how it was ‘not looking good’ then I am calling you senile.

    So yeah, it is what it IS. Something you don’t want to hear, and i can understand i really can.

    A couple weeks ago a cousin of mine was convicted of murder and given a life sentence. Everyone in our family thought she was the “angel” of the family. So yeah, It is a tough cookie to swallow when you think you know your loved ones and they end up having dark secrets.

    What I am so mad about is he KNEW for FOUR years this has been coming up over and over and over again and he waited until it was blowing up and left me in the line of fire.

    As for my digging and my mini-investigation…You bet your ass lady I did one AND IT IS NOT LOOKING GOOD- You get it that time?

    • gingersnapthornoftruth

      But but but Brandy, don’t you see, the good ole boys planned this all along? You see, ever since he started speaking out the “establishment” knew Joey would be a problem to them and would expose them, so they hired this boy to go cozy up with Joey and trick him to go out on the boat by themsleves and go to the bathroom by themslevs all so that they could use this investigation as a way to shut him up, because he is getting to close to the truth. This has to be right because Joey always predicted that they would come after him.

  15. this girl knows

    JOEY is innocent,,i had a page for him,but parents didn’t like it,,and i uncovered a few pedophiles and thier supporters,i don’t believe for one minute,that he molested any boy,it’s all to shut him up,,he speaks up and people don’t like that,just like you barbara and brandy,your both two peas in a pod,you better stick together, because your all you got.i have never met cheri or david dauben but am friends with david dauben,and his daughter shelby,seem like good people to me.talked to joey several times,people just don’t want him exposing them.barbara and brandy your charges look good on paper,but i laughed when i read them.yall are so full of shit.pure con artist from what i read of your charges on google barbara.

  16. This whole confusing story sound just like a sordid soap opera . I honestly do not understand how the Daubens and her Mother and other Dauben family members have been able to stand all of this disgusting bunch of people they are having to deal with. Joey, I blame you for being so stubborn to get involved with this brand of journalism in the first place. I believe and know you are very much capable of doing better. People will try to bring you down to their level if you allow them to do so.

    I don’t believe I should say anymore right now. I have been in touch with your Mother through chatting online. You can be very thankful that your parents have had patience in dealing with you. I am praying and expecting the case to be dismissed or settled before trial. These people out to frame you should not be given the time of day in a court, and it appears the legal people involved are not very professional or are being deceived by low minded and acting people.

    • And so you know, that MVZ will post as a person and make up stuff? Or was that you who posted as your facebook profile on MVZ’s blog saying that Joey wanted to come out of the closet but didn’t know how to do it?

      Yes, poor Joey and poor Dauben family. And poor easily influenced Texas Rangers and investigators.

      I hope it gets dismissed, but I am still sore at the kiniving, little, manipulative, using, lying, back-stabbing, sabotaging and hurtful bastard. lying asshole making shit up about me and my family and printing 750 copies to hand out to people, like my personal life is of any interest to other people?

      Yes, Poor Joey

  17. Just Watchin'

    Wow, would that be John Robert Huff, Jr., born 1952 and Texas registered sex offender?

    • gingersnapthornoftruth

      maybe he can be one of Joey’s character witnesses. Interesting how he says the Texas Rangers are not professional and are being decieved by low minded and acting people.

  18. ThoughtYOUmightWANTtoKNOW

    Brandy, two months before Joey was arrested on the sex with the boy stuff, Joey e-mailed me and a few other people telling me that he might be arrested for a really bad crime.

  19. Mary Mckeever

    Lack of vocabulary is indicative of lack of objectivity! If y’all think Ellis County investigators are fair and honest please re-think! Ellis County is the key word. We turn a blind eye to Motor Cycle gangs, Dog Fighting, and Cock Fighting! This is the USA – it is not a cultural thing! So, being Ellis County, Joey was and is fair game.the rules are for some, not others! God help you if you have the wrong last name!

  20. Hi there mates, its enormous post concerning educationand
    fully defined, keep it up all the time.
