Lynn Thomas loves to think of herself as someone who has a "brain" and is a master researchers. Yes Lynnbo you have a brain. The problem is not all of the neurons are firing. Lynn thinks so highly of herself we almost thought she was Jackbo's sister, living on the same planet he does ( and it ain't earth). For the last few years Lynn Thomas has been passing the Cao manuare around like a Texas cattle rancher. So now the truth has come out that MSG Billy Waugh put the final nail in Jacks scam operations in Afghanistan.Now here is the real truth about Jonathan Keith Idema coming from someone who should know him better than Lynn Thomas. Jack's old Commanding Officer.... What Thomas cat got your tongue? Arthritis in those lying fingers of your?
Let us open the following with some of the brilliant research and blogging work that Lynn "The Brain" Thomas has done regarding her honeybee Jack Idema. Yes Lynn verifies everything she prints! We know this because Lynn Thomas has a brain!
---------------extract from Cao's Blog-----------------------
"Oh look again, Uncle Jimbo, this is another genuine picture of the real deal, a very young Jack Idema, in his uniform (courtesy of the JFK Special Warfare Center & School). It is a picture that no one has ever seen or published, and one that Idema has never released. But I think wecan all agree, it really is him.
So, all the "experts" out there don't get their knickers in a twist over Idema's missing black and white name badge, during those years 10th SFG(A) operated against the Soviets, and those on teams with real world USSR missions did not wear nametags on their dress green uniform. Let's see, this one was taken around 1977, when you were what, about 10 years old? Back then, the Army Special Forces uniforms were slightly different also. There was no Special Forces "Tab" for graduating, you were awarded your Green Beret after Phase I (Selection) and your "full Flash" after you graduated fully qualified. The Special Forces Tab wouldn't even be invented for another ten years, right before your time, but it seems
to be "missing" off Uncle Jimbo's Philippines and Paintball pictures.
What else can we notice? Jack Idema is wearing a green Full Flash designating 10th Special Forces Group (ABN), he has an expert marksman badge, with little placards hanging off it, which are probably for either Expert rifle, pistol, and grenade, or Expert rifle, pistol, and machinegun. He has a Parachute badge, and a SCUBA badge, which means he graduated what is arguably the world's most difficult special operations school- note I said the WORLD's most difficult school. You know, the school you failed and flunked out of Uncle Jimbo. Did you even get the first day of class in the school Idema graduated from with honors, then returned to teach, and eventually became a Master Diver, then a Master Instructor, and then a Master Instructor Trainer?
According to a real Master Sergeant in the US Army Special Forces, Idema's team had one of the most classified missions- the Soviet SSBN "Boomer" base in Vladivostok. Have you ever even seen a Closed Circuit Rebreather system for infiltrating into an enemy coastline, like the one a 20-year-old Idema is wearing here? Or locked out of a Submarine? Because according to real SF sources, like the real SF Master Sergeant pictured down below, Idema is has actually done sub lockouts (USS SEAWOLF as in the SSN-575 Seawolf, not the Seawolf class of sub), not just daydreamed about it.

Subject: Jonthan Idema -- The Real Deal?
Cao or whatever your real name is (Is your real name really Lynn Thomas?),
You really should check and vette your information more closely. I don't know who feeds you the wild stories about 10th SFGA during the period that Mr. Idema was there, but you are way off base.
One -- the picture of Mr. Idema without a name tag? I don't know where you got that fantasy story about not wearing name tags on dress greens (why would someone wear their name tape on a field uniform and not on their greens, or why wear a beret and jump wings at all if one wanted to mask the fact that he was in SF?). Sorry, we all wore our nametapesand name tags all the time back at Fort Devens during that period. That story you have been fed is totally bogus. Idema's picture sure looks like a commercial studio picture -- not one from any Army photo studio. I was going through my pictures the other day and found a couple of Idema though. I offered to send him copies but Idema apparently did not want a copy of them.
Two - Mr. Idema was never on a SCUBA team while at Fort Devens. (Remember -- Idema says he was on the "Mountain Team" - except there was no formal "Mountain Team" like there was a HALO and SCUBA team. There was only one SCUBA team in each of the two battalions. The team sergeantof the 3rd Battalion SCUBA team was MSG John Larsen for the entire time that Idema was at Fort Devens. He currently lives in Spanaway, WA and he IS the real deal. Look him up -- check it out. Give him a call. Just ask yourself, just where was Idema when he did all this alleged super SCUBA stuff? At the basic-level SCUBA course? Where could he have possibly found the time to become a master diver? Where did he gain all
of this experience? I would like to know. Or is this some civilian or otherwise self-awarded title that has nothing to do with Special Forces?
Bottom line -- No Idema on a SCUBA team -- no secret spook SCUBA missions. Just made up stories.
Three -- I don't know know where you got the make-believe story about the mission against the "boomer base" in Vladivostok. äÏ×ÅÒØÔÅ ÍÎÅ - ñ ÚÎÁÀ Ï Þ£Í Ñ ÇÏ×ÏÒÀ. (get that translated). If you knew anything at all, you would know that the Soviet (and now Russian) Pacific sub base for their missile subs is at Petropavlovsk. Vladivostok WAS and still IS a big Russian SURFACE navy base, but it is not a submarine "boomer" base. Bad news for the fantasy warriors. They really should do their homework before they start making up bogus war stories.
Four -- ODA 324 (the first team to which Idema was assigned) NEVER had a mission to operate in Russia and certainly not on the Russian Pacific coast. I guess as the CO of the detachment I would know what the wartime mission was and what country it was in. You are not even close. I don't know who your "real SF Master Sergeant" source is, but I hope you aren't paying real money for these ficticious stories. Perhaps the Vladivostok mission was so "super classified" they overlooked telling the unit commander, the team sergeant, or any other person on the team -- other than Idema of course.
Why don't you do your homework? Let me he;p you out a little.
Idema came into the Army in 1975. Because he was repeatedly recycled just to get through training group (he failed 05B training twice and was then recycled into 11B training - the easiest of the MOS skills to pass) (sorry, no honor graduate -- -- -- note, even his SF School Diploma only says "Graduate", not "Honor Graduate") it took him a full year to get through a course that should have taken a lot less time. To be fair, and set the record fully straight, those who say he never made it
through SF school, are mistaken. He did make it through SF school -- eventually -- after three tries. They may be alluding to the allegations that Idema was to be thrown out of SF School after he had failed 05B training for the second time and that Idema's father, a man of means, used congressional influence to bring pressure on the Army to recycle him for a third try and that he would not have made it through on the third try without this pressure. For some, who made it through training group on their own, without special consideration or preferential
treatment, this might be the same as someone not making it through -- just a guesson my part. But, as I noted, Idema did eventually graduate from SF school and was sent to Fort Devens for his first non-school assignmentin the Army..
He came to Fort Devens around October 1976 and before completing his tour of enlistment, was reassigned from both A-teams to which he was sent. He spent probably no more than 8 or 9 months on the first team before he was first, formally punished and then, rehabilitatively reassigned to another team in a different company (the time includes the time spent at SCUBA school - sorry, I have not been able to come up with anyone who can verify anything of note from his time at SCUBA school except that perhaps he had washed out -- I don't think that is the case, but I am trying to run that to ground) He lasted even less time on the second A-team before he was sent down to the Group Signal Company to perform duties as a rear base station radio operator while he completed the remaining portion of his 3-year tour. He left the service with a bar to reenlistment as I recall (a mark of a real professional).
Idema did not attend any "Ski School" at Fort Devens, there was no such thing in the Army. He certainly did not attend German Mountain School as he maintains -- I was the individual that had him pulled from the training mission. As for his other claims? Well, you figure out the accuracy of them. Just what, pray tell, is a "Master Instructor" or a "Master Instructor Trainer." (see the extract from your blog below). I can't find anyone here in the Pentagon that has a clue on those effusive
titles when it comes to Special Forces. I am most curious. So are the Special Ops guys (you know -- "real operators") in the office down the hall from mine.
One thing I can't figure out here -- why do you maintain a blog site with an apparent religious bent and put Idema and Idema's obscenities on your site, to include the audio track which includes "This is f******* Jack Idema." Seems a bit of a contradiction. Not very religious.
Check your info and your sources there Cao or Lynn or whoever. Not everything is what you seem to think it is. Someone has watched one too many Rambo films, read one too many Tom Clancy novels, and heard one too many war stories with nothing to back them up.
The "sub base" at Vlad -- I am still getting a laugh from that one. Just like so many other bogus claims I have heard over the years.
P.S. If you want to find out what the U.S.S. Seawolf was really doing, read the book "Blind Man's Bluff" and talk with the real Commanding Officers of the boat. I did. I served with one of the boats commanders here in the NMCC.
P.P.S. I never did get a reply from you to my most recent e-mail. Did you check anything out? You might want to pull the part on your web site that says I don't even exist anymore or that I never wrote the evaluation on Idema, or that I was never in a position to evaluate him, or that I was only in the Army for a year. Those statements are all incorrect. I know you would want to be accurate and not publish knowlingly false information regarding someone,
So now Junior Cape Crusaders you see just how badly Lynn Thomas distorts facts and outrighties just to propel Jackbo no matter who she hurts. This is the mark of a Christian Woman? So you can take it to thebank that what ever Lynnbo writes you must verify as truth. You cannot trust Lynn Thomas at all and so if Lynnbo said the sun was shining, you better dam well run to window to look for yourself! You need medical help Lynn Thomas!
The Stupor Patriots was created to counter-balance Jack idema's website. On this blog is the truth about Jack Idema. We did not attack innocent people, we did not make things up just to hurt people and we focused solely on Jack idema and his scamming exploits.
We will continue to keep you posted as Jacks screws up.....
BTW Jack you owe Columbia University some $285,524.70 for suing them! Shits and Giggles big bad ass Jack Idema...
