Lake, in her plane.

OP I thought you were telling us this chick went down on some guy named Percy Priest in a plane.

by Anonymousreply 2May 30, 2021 3:03 AM

The plane was full of Remnants.

[quote]SMYRNA, Tenn. (WTVF) — A small airplane crashed in the water on Percy Priest Lake in Smyrna Saturday morning.

[quote]Several law enforcement and emergency agencies responded to the crash around 11 a.m.

[quote]Authorities located a debris field near the last sighting of a Cessna C501 registered to JL&GL Productions LP, which is a partnership formed by Brentwood-based Christian diet guru Gwen Shamblin Lara and her husband Joe Lara.

[quote]Gwen Shamblin Lara's daughter, Elizabeth Hannah, sent out a text to Remnant families asking for prayers, saying the plane "had to go down for a controlled, quick landing."

[quote]The text said that the Laras were on the plane, along with Remnant leaders David and Jennifer Martin, Jonathan and Jessica Walters and Elizabeth Hannah's husband, Brandon.

A few former members of her cult are posting on Free Jinger. According to them, the other two couples in the crash along with Gwen, comprised the upper management. Joe Tarzan as well, but he’s coming across as rather dim-witted. He was always getting shushed and talked over because he never could get his lines right and constantly said the wrong thing (thanking god instead of Gwen) during services and on their YouTube videos.

They’re speculating about how the battle for succession will play out and it’s agreed that Gwen’s son is out of the running because he’s too fat. His wife is also out because she allowed him to get too fat.

Finally, a fundie cult DL can get behind!

From what I've read I don't think that was her schtick. Most of her money came from selling her "diets."

Why would God take a beautiful young woman who only wanted to teach a gluttonous (Deadly Sin #2!) world that breakfast is not to be eaten all at once; it is to broken down into 2-bite increments and eaten over the course of the day? Why, God? WHY??

From what I'm reading about the Josef Smith case, it sounds a lot like Gwen appropriated the Pearls' [italic]To Train up a Child[/italic] torture-porn manual, which was then meant to be verbally passed down to members without leaving a paper trail.

The main principle is abusing children (starting in infancy with nursing babies who grab the mother's hair or eyeglasses) until they shut down completely and stop crying and resisting. When they're old enough to speak, they're expected to say "thank you" after.

The whippings are repeated to the point of total silence and submission each time the kid does something the parents don't like, as many times as necessary. They see it as going a few rounds with a demon who's inhabiting their child's body, so they'll repeat the cycle dozens of times in a day if they suspect anything short of a sunny disposition between beatings.

The true sign of success is when a child willingly starts going to a parent — glue stick, plastic ruler, flexible piping in hand — and requests a whipping for a transgression the parent isn't even aware of. That's what they consider a godly, obedient child who is no longer being influenced by Satan.

[italic]To Train up a Child[/italic] is the same book Michelle Duggar used to recommend.

The cult has issued a statement of the "NBA Legend Kobe Bryant Perishes in Helicopter Crash, 8 Others Dead" variety.

May 30, 2021 – Brentwood, TN

The seven Remnant Fellowship leaders lost May 29, 2021 were some of the finest and most loving people that you would ever come across. During this horrible tragedy, our church would greatly appreciate prayers.

We want everyone who was affected, especially the children of the passengers, to know that they are very loved and our church will be taking special care of the children’s needs in these coming years.

Gwen Shamblin Lara was one of the world’s most kind, gentle, and selfless mother and wife, and a loyal, caring, supportive best friend to all. She lived every day laying down her own life to ensure that others could find a relationship with God. Because of that, her memory will definitely remain for a long time as she has a place in millions of people’s hearts around the world through her work with Weigh Down Ministries and Remnant Fellowship Church. Her wonderful and supportive husband, Joe Lara, will also be greatly missed.

The other passengers who perished in the crash were Remnant Fellowship leaders who were very involved in the community and loved by many – David and Jennifer Martin, Jonathan and Jessica Walters, and Brandon Hannah.

On behalf of Remnant Fellowship Church, we would like to thank the First Responders and all who have helped our church and these families during this difficult time.

Finally, as far as Remnant Fellowship Church and Weigh Down Ministries are concerned, Michael Shamblin and Elizabeth Shamblin Hannah, Gwen’s two children, and the church leadership intend to continue the dream that Gwen Shamblin Lara had of helping people find a relationship with God.

Well, I’ve come full circle. I texted a couple of photos to my half-sister and after the “who is THAT?” I gave her her the shortest answer: That’s Gwen Shamblin Lara, a woman who figured out how to monetize her anorexia and later started a cult.

We moved on and while we were talking about something else, she blurted out, “Holy shizzzzz!! I just googled her and I recognize her book cover! Do you remember when mom was on that diet and would only eat with a baby spoon?!?!?”

I did remember the spoon. How could I not? But I had no idea that it was the Weigh Down diet.

It turns out that she only stayed on it for a couple of weeks because she let one of her Relief Society friends borrow the book and the friend thought it sounded “weird and cultish.”

So there you have it, Weigh Down was too weird and cultish for temple-ordinance-performing Mormons.

Both left other relationships to be with one another and pitch their Bachlerette fundy reality show. Tarzan also battled to cut out the mother of his young daughter, hopefully she will be restored to her now.

The first husband was a bit portly so was kept under wraps. The son takes after him, not sure how he will preside over an ana cult. And Gwen herself called her then infant grandson "a little porker." Lady had some ISSUES.

Hopefully this will be the end of the cult, it seems to have harmed many. She did not promote a focus on protein or healthy food, surely many developed sarcopenia or osteopenia as a result of starving and eating with a baby spoon.

There was nothing wrong with the quality of a Cessna jet, or most any small jet, for that matter. The problem is usually the pilot not having enough experience to deal with unforseen issues that arise during flight, or the owners not wanting to spend the money on maintaining the equipment. A lot of these sorts of people who buy used jets to make an impression can't really afford to do the maintenance, and can't afford to hire a professional pilot. You get what you pay for. Small planes, in many emergency situations, have a better chance of survival with minimal damage because they can be brought down in smaller spaces. I suspect Tarzan should have stuck to his usual mode of transit...swinging from ropes in trees. Thank god Cheetah wasn't on board.

Why all the allegations of cheating? If she married Tarzan AFTER her divorce was final then that’s not cheating.

Also, what did Tarzan do for a living before marrying into this church? Tarzan residuals couldn’t have paid that much, not enough to buy a plane. Was he newly rich and the plane and all the new toys were because he married into this rich church? He must have thought he hit the jackpot!

But the church and her diet cult are two different things, right? Not everyone in the church was on her diet program. There were other leaders in the church. Three and half pairs of them died. How much money is the church making to support 4 or more leadership couples? Other churches only support one.

She has no business starting a diet program since she never struggled with her weight or had a weight problem. In the 20/20 segment she said she has never been 20lbs overweight and was skinny her entire life. What makes her think she understands the struggles of the overweight? It’s like someone who has never drank telling alcoholics “Just stop being an alcoholic. Just stop drinking. It’s so easy.”

“More information to come, but be in prayer - and be at peace. GOD IS IN CONTROL, and we will not stop moving forward with WHAT GOD WANTS with this church. On behalf of Michael and I both, we love this church and need the prayers of the righteous on this one.”

[quote]But the church and her diet cult are two different things, right?

She started out as an RD with an MS from Memphis state, where she later taught. The diet workshops came before the cult, but the diet is really just a repackaging of all the tricks used by anorexics.

She sold it as a miracle diet with no off-limits foods. If you want a piece of cake you can have it, but only after starving yourself long enough that drinking tons of water is no longer helping with the discomfort. Only then are you allowed to eat, and only enough to stop the hunger pains.

She seemed to think that two normal bites were a sufficient meal for most people. But then there was a lot of ritualized behavior involved in breaking those two bites down into tiny little pieces, each one to be followed with lots of water, and examining whether each each one really needed to be eaten. Then, for good measure, she would pile a lot of religious guilt and shame about gluttony on top.

All of the above to illustrate the point that normal followers couldn’t stick to her diet for more than a few days and word was starting to get out. She also ran into trouble when she publicly denied the trinity. As all of her business until that point had come from church groups, so when they started dropping her workshops she was in danger of losing everything.

Like every good grifter she turned her rapidly spreading cancelation into a plus and blamed the inability of people to succeed on her diet on the churches that were now dropping her. The churches were operating under the influence of Satan and that’s why their members were finding it impossible to turn anorexic overnight.

Coincidentally, at the same time, god told her to start a cul... I meant to say, create a home for all of these people (the remnants) who had been used and abused and cast aside by the very devilish churches that were dropping her program.

TL;DR: anorexia is the backbone of both the cult and the diet, and the two can’t be separated. The diet program recruits for the cult; the cult self-publishes books and materials for the dieters.

Would be ironic indeed if the plane was too heavy and thus it was harder to control when things went wrong.

Sig Bauer 22 minutes ago More information:

1. Pilot was rated for this AC but from what I've been hearing, was always flying behind. According to sources, he had no business flying these people.

2. Fuel service stated that they topped-off.

3. The useful load, according to my sources, for this AC with full tanks, is about 850 pounds. They had 7 adults plus baggage and were heading to Palm Springs. Probably overweight.

4. Sources commented that it would be interesting to know whether they knew they were OW and requested 32 for the anticipated longer take-off distance.

5. Brandon, the other pilot onboard, is being reported as only being a private pilot. Sources say he was also multi-engine and commercial rated pilot.

6. From about 1:26, you can see in the tracking data that the AC was rapidly picking-up speed and losing altitude. Possible inversion or stall?

7. I don't have the timestamp, but it appears that they may have recovered, as the AC is losing speed but gaining altitude. However, it also appears that they over-corrected and inverted again before smashing into the water at about 158 knots.

For reference, field elevation is about 540'.

8. Spokesmen for the search and rescue efforts are saying they are recovering "human remains" and not "bodies". Distinction?

9. The "alarms" being heard are simply the ignitors. On for TO, off once in the air at some point.

We could have more tragedy here soon as we're having an air show this weekend. A few year ago, a Blue Angles pilot lost his life here.

Here's my bet...the plane was purchased used by the grifter and tarzan, and owned through an LLC so they could depreciate it, and write-off the maintenance, while charging the"church" for renting it anytime they wanted to go anywhere. They could have also then paid tarzan for piloting or co-piloting it. Its probably going to be shown that pilot error, or lack of maintenance was the cause of the crash, so the families will all sue the LLC, which the insurance company will make a pay-out on, one way or another. Everyone makes some cash, daughter and son get to take-over the "ministry", the money keeps rolling-in, and the world is left with a few less MAGAts

Excerpts from a very long story in which Gwen, Tedd Ahn-zhay, and the newly late David Martin gang up on a depressed woman who broke cult rules by taking prescribed antidepressants and then ended up on an involuntary psych hold after their intervention:

[quote]When I got over to the food section, Gwen walked up to me in a very serious manner. She told me that she wouldn’t feel sorry for me at all, that I needed to get over this, and that she would cry for me when my husband left me because he would be so sick and tired of this. (In an earlier conversation in the Remnant parking lot, Gwen had seen me with all my make-up off because I had been crying. She told me that the next time she saw me at church, I’d better have make-up, lipstick on, a smile on my face, and serving everyone, and asking how they feel. She also said I’d better not have anyone ask how I feel because it’s not about me.)

[quote]Tedd and David Martin told me to get the medicine from my purse in my car. I did. Tedd then took me to the guest bathroom, told me to pour all the pills down the toilet and flush them. I did. He then told me that those pills were evil, were of the devil, and that he’d love to get his hands on the doctor who gave them to me. My husband, David and Tedd discussed that when we got home, he would find the pills and get rid of them. I was so upset at this point that I couldn’t even drive home.

[quote]The next morning I wasn’t much better. I didn’t want to go to church and be around people. David forced me to go and told me he would give up church permanently if I didn’t go in that building. I was crying, and Shannon Crowder came out to the car, told me to stop it, and to walk in the building thanking God for my eyes, ears, hands, family, anything else that I could think of.

Next stop: psych ward!

[quote]I called David and asked if Tedd knew a lawyer that could get me out of there. I didn’t want to spend one more night there! David said that Tedd said that I got what I deserved by disobeying God and that I was experiencing “hell on earth” which was good for me.

[quote]I can remember one Sunday when I felt okay to go to church, that Gwen had talked about Achan in the Old Testament, who was responsible for several people getting punished by God for his sin. She emphasized that none of Remnant would want to be an “Achan”, which meant that one person’s sin would cause the whole Remnant nation to fall. I felt like I was that Achan since I was still taking anti-depressants, in disagreement to what leadership said. What guilt to place on people!

She finally got out when they came for her kid:

[quote]When I said to Greg, “Do you mean that you have had trouble with Chris for 3 weeks and this is the first time I have heard about it?” he couldn’t answer me. The only defiance he could report was that he refused to work at the Remnant garden that the kids had planted at Ashlawn (Gwen’s estate).

[quote]Then the leaders began talking about everyone in Remnant Nashville taking their kids out of public schools and home schooling them. I fell for this and was planning on allowing Remnant members (who even weren’t certified teachers) home school my children while I would be working full-time. The Holy Spirit really convicted me on this as a mistake, because I began to visualize my son getting spanked and reprimanded harshly for not doing the hard work that they would demand of him.

Not only was his medical cert years out of date but to fly that many passengers/weight, it is my understanding that a higher level med cert is required.

[quote]I will never fly on a discount airline nor a small plane. Why? The larger planes on discount airlines are old airplanes with no real record of the maintenance schedule. Plus they don't have the ground crews backing them up like the name brand lines. The pilots and co pilots may not have been at the top of their class. I spent a good deal of time reading about all the major crashes. If you want to scare the bejesus out of yourself, do a google search.

There hasn't been a fatal crash on any US airline, major or discount or regional, since 2009. Well, there was that one incident on Southwest in 2018 where an engine part broke a window and a woman's head was sucked out...but it landed safely, minus her.

Had it been a clear day and had there been less weight on the plane (fully fueled and almost every seat full) it might all have turned out differently. The thing with not very bright people, esp when older, is that they may not think as quickly or react as quickly to emergency conditions. He may have gotten disoriented by the cloud conditions, he also oversped the plane at which point it would start to come apart in air.

A newer plane and a professional pilot would have been good investments. Flying commercial was an option too.

From FJ: Good work for lawyers if true

Here are some more facts that will eventually come out more officially.

Fact: Joe didn't fly at all from 2010-2017. Again, he had no money around this time until he met Gwen. Prior to 2010, he owned one plane. It was a Cessna Sky Wagon (those smaller planes with the 3rd wheel in back under the tail.)

Fact: When Gwen provided money, he then took crash courses (no pun intended) on 2 plane types and a helicopter.

Thoughts: I'm no pilot, but this seems like a lot of different license types in a short time. Seems like not enough time to master one aircraft before going on to the next.

Fact: Joe knew his medical was lapsed (it was NOT an oversight). This will come out and the evidence of such is black/white. The NTSB will get this proof in their hands.

Thoughts: Whether or not Joe was legally licensed (he was not), it is very feasible 1 or more wrongful death lawsuits will entail. If insurance gets to dodge that liability since Joe wasn't legally licensed, it is feasible Gwen's mass fortune will be spent on lawyers and huge payouts. While I agree the outcome of RF is impossible to guess longer term, if Gwen's countless millions goes away, that affects the course of RF moving forward in at least some regards.

The pilot at r508 was worthy of his own thread twelve years ago.

[quote]According to the Atlanta Constitution Journal police said the incident began when two code enforcement officers responded to a complaint of someone driving a car across the runway. When they approached Gryder, he allegedly gave them a false name and then refused to sign six citations. He then boarded the DC-3, started at least one engine and “told one of the officers that if she moved, he would strike her car, police said,” the newspaper reported. The code officer called for backup and police “flooded the area” as Gryder taxied the 72-year-old airliner to the runway.

[quote]According to the police, as reported by the newspaper, Gryder held at the end of the runway and “demanded” fuel, which was not provided. He taxied back to parking area and was arrested as he left the aircraft. Griffin police spokesman Brian Clanton told the Constitution Journal that the incident created a significant hazard. “He essentially shut the airport down for almost 45 minutes,” Clanton said. “His actions created a danger for all of our officers, himself, and others who lawfully use the airport.” He also said the FAA is investigating.

In one of his recent videos he called a pilot from Antigua a WOG and blamed the crash on his personality and innate sense of fear, both of which he attributed to a 3rd-world upbringing. Lovely.

More intel from the member inside the cult. My source says that two weeks ago, the church leaders called a secret service. They claim members were not allowed to bring cameras or phones or record the meeting.The meeting was held after the member said that Joe & Gwen Lara had become increasingly paranoid about The Biden Administration.

During the meeting, the member said that Gwen told them that racism wasn’t real & that if anyone believed racism was real, they were playing the victim & feeling sorry for themselves. This admission by Gwen apparently caused a huge outburst with some members pushing back & speaking up against her statement. Some stormed out. The member also claimed that Gwen instructed the members to become constitutionalists.

They were told to prepare to defend the constitution, put god into their homes, speak out against the government taking away rights, and become outspoken against the social changes on the horizon.

My source says that Gwen told them only to listen to specific sources for information, including Candace Owens & a speaker at an upcoming “Patriot Rally” they were sponsoring in Florida. The rally featured Roger Stone & Michael Flynn. The event continues to promote the “stolen election” vibe.

I asked how they wanted people to “defend the constitution” but the source claims that they really didn’t know. They insist this wasn’t a start of a militia or a call to arm themselves.

Apparently, Joe Lara was extremely right wing, alt-right, according to the member. His political views were called “extreme” by the member. Gwen’s speeches/services had become more & more political following the lost election. The member believed that Joe was heavily influencing Gwen’s political paranoia.

Many members were furious after this meeting and many wanted to quit. The member said that now there is an out for many to leave with no clear path for who would take over.

Gwen was the only person that delivered sermons & no one else was allowed to speak.

The church was already starting a huge fracture that the member claims will only get bigger with their deaths

More posting from WITHOUT A CRYSTAL BALL on Facebook

A member of the church reached out to me today. The member says that the plane that Joe Lara flew had recently been in the shop for mechanical issues related to the front landing gear.

The Cessna they flew in was almost 40 years old. The source claims a family friend monitored the flight, as they did with every flight, when the aircraft fell off radar, the friend reached out to leaders that something had happened to the plane

The text message by the daughter claiming a controlled landing, could have been speculation from the pilot friend watching the flight pattern. Though the source could not be certain.

The source claims the whole group is completely distraught, numb and some are seeing this as an opportunity to leave the group all together.

"I don't know the Insta person cited, but I heard the same info independently from multiple people close to RF. There was a "secret" meeting. No phones/cameras allowed. The Insta post captures the "racism ain't real" message well. And less than a week later, one of the RF "deacons" was on Biden's FB page saying Biden had stolen the election. There used to be space in RF for Dems. Aside from "I don't see how anyone can stay" comments, I don't see how any Democrat can stay. (And yes, there are still Dems in RF.
