Paleo Diet News: Dr. Jack Kruse Accused Of Attempted Bio-Terrorism

Dr. Jack Kruse, Nashville Neurosurgeon, and Paleo Diet community leader was the victim of an attempt to incriminate the doctor, and basically ruin his weekend….which was obviously successful.

Dr. Kr

use was all set to sail on the 5th annual “Low-Carb Cruise”, hosted and organized by Jimmy Moore, when Cyber-terrorists threw a wrench in the works.

Dr. Jack Kruse Accused Of Attempted Bio-Terrorism

Here’s some of the details from the website of Nashville’s News Channel 5:

Kruse, didn’t get to cruise.

“The Carnival Cruise ship Magic was set to sail from Galveston, TX Sunday afternoon, but a knock on Kruse’s stateroom door changed

his travel plans.

Galveston Police were outside the door when Kruse opened it, prior to the ship leaving port.

“They start asking my about tweets that I had sent and they wouldn’t tell me any of the data around the tweets,” Kruse explained.”

“The Twitter feed apparently led people to believe there was going to be some kind of bio-terrorism attack on the boat and it was tied to me,” Kruse said.

The tweet came from the account @shitkrusesays and read, “security confiscated dynamite. talk won’t be as explosive as one at PaleoFx. still have vial of Legionnaires for epic biohack. #lccruise12.”

To the people in the Paleo Community, it’s obvious that the Twitter account named above, is not maintained by Dr. Kruse, because it’s main purpose has always been to make fun of statements made by Dr. Kruse. The timing

of the Tweet was obviously planned, and we might think that the whole thing was never intended to cause any harm, if a corroborating phone call hadn’t also been placed to the Cruise line. The stunt was almost certainly meant to cause big trouble for Dr. Kruse, in my opinion.

The Authorities cleared Kruse of any possible involvement at the scene, but the Cruise line officials still refused to allow him back on board the ship:

“Monday a Carnival Cruise spokesperson released a statement to NewsChannel 5 explaining the Captain’s actions.

“Since the safety and well-being of our guests and crew is paramount, every security threat is taken seriously and fully investigated.  Since the investigation was ongoing at the point the ship needed to depart, it was in the best interest of all guests and crew to err on the side of caution and not allow him to sail,” Jennifer de la Cruz wrote in the statement.

The FBI officially would not comment on this case.

But according to Kruse the agency is now investigating the origin of the threatening tweet sent in his name. The doctor was told agents have made progress.

“I know that one of the main ringleaders that’s tied to the twitter feed is in New York and they’re probably going to be talking to her very soon,” Kruse said.”

So what influential people in the Paleo community do we know, that could or would be implemented in this whole thing? I would like to say that I don’t believe anyone within the Paleo community would do such a thing, but the culprits have to be community insiders, to have such good knowledge of Dr. Kruse’s numerous statements etc.

Another report was released by WKRN Nashville on the story:

“NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A Nashville neurosurgeon was escorted off a Carnival Cruise Line ship Sunday after a post on Twitter led authorities to believe the doctor planned to committee a bioterrorist attack.”

“In addition, Carnival was contacted by a caller named “Lance” who informed them a doctor aboard the Carnival Magic was planning to perform a viral bio hack”

“The investigation into who sent the tweet is ongoing.”

There has been an immediate outpouring of support for Jack, from the Paleo Community, and quite rightly so.

Let me make it clear that although I don’t agree with many things that Jack Kruse says, or how he delivers his message, I don’t understand how someone could hate a person so much as to push them to these lengths. I think that such an act is deplorable, and the culprits…..whoever they may be….should be punished accordingly when they are caught. And they WILL be caught.

I STILL don’t agree with Jack, but I also don’t believe that he deserved what happened to him. What do YOU think about this story?

    Wow. Poor judgement and lack of maturity. Unless, of course, Dr. Actually had a vial of Legionnaire’s? I assume he did not…

      Dr. Kruse was not found to be in possession of any possibly harmful bio-agents. :-)

    Wow. The stupidity of some people never ceases to amaze me. Do these idiots not realize they will now be listed by the American Office of Homeland Security for LIFE! What a bunch of dumd-a**es!

    SIGH…. if you ever see a twitter account named @shit(X)says, then it is not likely to be the person’s real account, and anyone who thinks so is quite short on net-savvy.

    I think calling these pranksters cyber terrorists is a bit OTT. To suggest that it comes from paleo insiders is one thing. For some to suggest that it’s paleo leaders is entirely different. It sounds more like the stupidity of a university age prank. Really, it is a storm in a teacup.

      Agreed Paul. We don’t know for sure as of yet, that the whole thing wasn’t a publicity stunt. The offending tweet, and the phone call might have been two completely unrelated, events that were joined together by unscrupulous and opportunistic persons.

    Hopefully, this is a one-time incident, sickening, an incident which should have never occurred, a destructive and demoralizing event relating to a person’s whole life. An event no one condones and not something anyone should ever have to experience, no matter their shared differences of opinion or dislike for one another. With that said, I also find the victim’s response to be publicly irresponsible by attempting to behave/act in much the same way he was victimized, although Dr. Kruse is using a different tool to destroy others he shares differences of opinions with. Dr. Kruse naming names (really naming blogs of vocal dissenters) appears to be his retaliatory attempts to discredit and outcast other leaders who may not have been involved. Dr. Kruse’s actions are creating dissension and are further fracturing the entire community. I can relate to having some level of paranoia after such an event. However, I believe Dr. Kruse crossed a line on May 7 when broadcasting over the internet when announcing or heavily implying the FBI had confirmed (directly to him) that the perpetrators (no questions asked), were a supposed group of paleo leaders and then leading people to particular blogs to have the supposed perps revealed. The following day, a very different story evolved, the new story … Dr. Kruse gave the feds a list of names of possible suspects, not that the feds gave him a list of suspects. For me, this act to intentionally mislead and fracture is harmful and doe exemplify the virtues of leadership. Very different sides of the same coin, yet on the other side of the coin there is a growing list of possible victims.

      I agree. The entire thing is an utter disaster. I predicted that a while back that this kind of thing could end-up severely harming the Paleo Community, and it appears that I was right.
