WinePress “Not Stolen”

Written by Timothy

The hate crime involved an underlying lie for which not a single person has ever asked for the facts and evidence.

The lie was that WinePress Publishing was stolen.

In the video, a mere 1% of the provable facts are presented.

Seattle, King County Prosecutors, City of Enumclaw Police abused their power to inflame and protect this lie.

Fact is, Enumclaw Police opposed any truth, facts and evidence that got in the way of their set-up through King James Bible only, self-righteous Baptist Detective Grant McCall.

Indeed, the City of Enumclaw promoted Enumclaw Detective Grant McCall and he is now training, teaching and supervising other “detectives” on how to plant testimony, destroy evidence and stone-wall the truths of factual evidence!

WinePress Not Stolen Transcript

Jan:

I’m here for one purpose and one purpose only this is what I have to say, Timothy Williams did not, did not steal WinePress.

There’s been this rumor going around for years saying that he stole WinePress, it’s not true, in fact it’s absurd.

Timothy’s integrity was unbelievable he had published some books through WinePress, quite a few I don’t, I don’t remember the exact number, seven or eight something like that and he took all those books, except for one he did keep Gossip and the Gospel in print, all the others he took out of print he wanted there to be no appearance at all that maybe his books would get priority or he was going to take advantage of some specials or anything. Was like nope all of his books, out of print.

It was just amazing his integrity and of course that’s something I have just observed in his life. I mean I would have to say in all my years my 70 plus years, I’ve met a lot of men in my life, and I have never met a man that is holy and righteous as Timothy and I have known him for 20 years and I’ve seen the crooks just work, the cross of Christ just works the purity in his life its just amazing but you might be wondering, “Well hey what’s WinePress?”

Who’s Timothy Williams and who am I? Well I’m going to get into all that I’m going to tell you that and a lot more. First let’s start with WinePress, what was WinePress, and I am saying was because it’s no longer uh it’s no longer in existence but WinePress was an incredible company, it was a Christian self-publishing company.

I never worked in the publishing industry before and I was just I loved worked for the company, I loved this company so much but what they did is there’s so many authors, people that they’ve written books very excellent books, well-written and inspiring good messages and everything but traditional publishers, they won’t take them because they want the big name sellers, they want to make sure hey if we sign this book uh author up we can sell a million copies, well they don’t know these smaller authors so this provided an opportunity for these authors to get their message out and have a quality product from 2003 until 2015 I was the accounting manager there so this story is from the perspective of accounting department because that’s the department that I know.

Now when I first came to work for WinePress that was back in 2003. I started in the accounting department and the operation was kind of shady as I was exploring things, I found out that they had not one QuickBooks file, not two QuickBooks files but three I mean sometimes companies will have like a second set of books but they had three sets of books and of course then I found that payroll taxes hadn’t been paid, money been deducted from the employees paychecks but it was never sent into the IRS so that’s a red flag and there were other things too that were going on but just those two I mean should be red flag enough that if you wanted to work in a, in an upright company, a legal operation, you would run, run far from there?

So, you’re probably asking “well hey and why did you stay? If you saw these things that were going on with the company, I mean why didn’t you leave?” Well, I’ll tell you why I didn’t leave and there’s it’s one reason, Timothy Williams.

The owner of the company, I’m not going to identify her name, I’ll just call her Jezebel for this interview but she had hired him, he was actually the pastor of the church that we attended. She had hired him to come over and look over the operations and advise her and console her. He was going to turn this into a respectable business and Jezebel at the time she wanted that to happen she wanted to change her ways, she wanted to run things according to the rules, follow standard accounting principles and so I stayed at WinePress and so you might be wondering, “Okay who is this Timothy Williams?”

Well one thing, at the time, he was the pastor of the church that I attend and actually Jezebel attended that church. That’s where I met her and we were actually roommates, we were roommates for about 8 years.  Timothy came in, she had him consult with her on running the business and it was incredible just so amazing to see how he transformed that business from a shady unorganized operations to well really they ended up being the number one bestselling number one self-publishing company in the industry and it was just like I said was amazing to see and Jezebel loved it too because she was kind of the face of the company and she liked going to conferences and speaking and giving classes and meeting with authors and stuff like that but now she had an operation behind her that was reliable and she could actually produce the quality product that she was promising authors.

So, for her oh this was so great for her. She didn’t really like the day-to-day operations, especially didn’t like the accounting department. In fact we butted heads quite a bit on what is standard accounting practice. She would come to me and say “I need clothes, I need new clothes to go to the conference so I need company money.”  It’s like no a new wardrobe is not a business expense, but she wanted to change things around and so she did agree to go by the rules. Well as time went on Timothy actually took on more and more of the responsibilities at WinePress. He was always called in if there was a difficult situation.

About the year 2006, Jezebel asked if he would buy the company. It was kind of an interesting time for him because he had been the pastor of the church, I think I mentioned that before, but he had retired the previous year, so he did have some free time, some extra time but was this what he wanted to do? Well it wasn’t what he wanted to do and he balked at the idea.

He’s a pastor, he’s not a businessman, this is not really his line of work at all. But then at the same time he is asking “Well, I don’t want to do this but is this what God is working?” His wife Carla encouraged him to take this on because she really thought that what this company needs is a pastor’s heart not a businessman but a pastor’s heart.

So eventually he did agree that he would buy the company, but he had one condition, just one, and what that was that Jezebel wanted to do this 100% and she wasn’t going to look back. That was his only condition that if that was met he would go ahead and move forward with it and so she agreed yes that is what I want. So we started changing over the operations. I set up accounts for him, new accounts for him with the IRS, State of Washington, and got all that paperwork in order.

Jezebel hired an outside CPA who specialized in evaluating businesses and coming up with the fair market value for a sale price. Actually he flew in from I think it was California and stayed at Jezebel’s house while he was here. He spent three days at WinePress Publishing just going over the books. He would tell me, ‘Oh I need this report and that report. He was interviewing department heads in the company, touring the company, just observing how the operation went and meeting some of the employees.

Now Timothy wasn’t a part of the evaluation at all. He was an outside consultant, so the CPA didn’t really ask about him or want to know any more about him. He just wanted to know what was going on, mainly in the accounting department. He then left and mailed back his report.

Everything was in order, we were all excited, all the employees, we knew what was happening. Jezebel started announcing it in the media. There was an article in one of the magazines and she started speaking about it publicly. So, it was just gangbusters moving ahead.

Until one day when Timothy was at work, Jezebel walked past his door and kind of mumbled under her breath “I don’t know if I really want to sell WinePress.” Well, as soon as he heard that, red flags, and he went into action. I got a call right away. Okay put a hold on transferring the sale of the company. I didn’t know why at this time or anything. I just go, “Okay well this project’s on hold for now. I focus on something else.” But Timothy is just, “No this was not going to happen.” Well, a couple days later I did find out about it.

Jezebel and I were called into a meeting with the executive director and he told her at that time “Timothy’s not going to buy the company.” At first Jezebel’s didn’t really believe it. She goes, “Well yes he is, he’s got everything in place. No this is going to happen.” She didn’t really believe what he was saying and so he said again, “No he is not going to buy the company, it’s final. He’s not going to change his mind.” Well when she realized that he meant it, she became hysterical and she just started sobbing and going, “He has to, he has to.” She just kept saying that over and over again

She knew without him, this company did not have a promising future at all. She would not stop crying out and I finally spoke up.  I had been sitting there really stunned with the whole thing that I was hearing and I go, “Jezebel he’s not going to buy it.” So at that point the sale was off. It did not go through and Timothy made it clear at that point that he would never attempt to buy the company again. That was just dead. If Jezebel ever did want to sell the company again maybe the church, Sound Doctrine where we went to church, they could buy the company and that way it could just be really a part of everybody, part of the church. That was really the end of it.
