[Editor’s note: From scratch, Emma and David seemed to be too perfect for their roles as though they had been cast in a staged “school shooting” production. When I learned of the interview on 60 Minutes, it seemed highly likely to me that her “parents” had been cast for those roles, too. And that if that were the case, the parents would be lowlifes, willing to scam the public for their own benefit (which could be in the form of payment, expunging their records or other forms of reward). That they turn out to have criminal backgrounds, including drug dealing and child molestation, therefore, came to me as no surprise. How much did 60 Minutes know? Thanks to Dan for another brilliant expose.]
Curiously, the media has reported very little information about the family of Stoneman Douglas High School student, Emma González who seemingly overnight catapulted into the national spotlight as an activist and advocate for gun control. On the other hand, the media almost immediately reported the names and occupations of David Hogg’s parents and featured them along with his younger sister in interviews.
According to Wikipedia, David is originally from Los Angeles, California, but moved to Florida at the beginning of high school. He is the son of Kevin Hogg, a former agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Rebecca Boldrick, a teacher for Broward County Public Schools in Broward County, Florida. He has a younger sister, Lauren.
For Emma, Wikipedia states she was raised in Parkland, Florida and has lived there her entire life. Her mother is a math tutor and her father is a cyber security attorney who immigrated from Cuba to New York City in 1968. She has two older siblings. It was not until their 60 Minutes appearance that aired on March 18, that the media provided a glimpse of Emma’s parents.
[Editor’s note: A correspondent, “Anastasia”, has observed that, with the criminal record Dan reports about Jose below, he would appear to be disqualified from serving as an attorney, cyber security or not. She has sent a link that lists two Florida attorneys with similar names, neither of whom appears to be our “Jose”. Dan may have stumbled across a fake report, where he provides us with an update below.]
The 60 Minutes interview conducted at the González home in Parkland, FL provided just one quick shot of her father (who they did not name) but did feature a short interview with her mother, who was only referred to as “Beth”.
Elizabeth and Jose moved to Parkland, FL in November 1998 and still live there today:
Elizabeth has a criminal record and acting credits, too
According to (what appears to be) her IMBd profile, she has numerous television and film credits including Director. Perhaps, this is why she was interviewed and not the father.
When Elizabeth and husband, Jose Emilio González lived in Dallas, TX, she was charged for Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Deliver (Cocaine 4 grams):
Jose Gonzalez: Criminal Records for Possession and Child Molestation
Records for Jose E. Gonzalez reveal a wide variety of seemingly unrelated careers and an enormously long list of criminal records including Possession of a Controlled Substance and Child Molestation while in Dallas, TX.
Child Molestation and Enticing a Child for Indecent Purposes:
In addition, Jose’s criminal records include multiple charges for Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol and Driving While Intoxicated, Alcohol Intoxication in a Public Place, Probation Violation and Assault:
By contrast, reports that he is an attorney look like fabrications
But his registration is in New York, not in Florida, which raises suspicions that it’s fake:
Elizbeth and Jose do not appear to have a daughter, Emma
Most puzzling of all, it appears that Elizabeth and Jose do not even have a daughter named “Emma”. They do have two sons, Desmond and Cary as noted in Emma’s Wikipedia profile but there appears to be no evidence that she is a member of this family based on background information.
Also, Emma does not appear on the list of registered voters for the González residence in Parkland, FL. Certainly, it stands to reason that she would be registered to vote given all of her advocacy work.
Equally puzzling, David Hogg does not appear to be the son of Kevin Hogg and Rebecca Boldrick according to background information. Their daughter, Lauren is included but not David.
The Gonzalez and Hogg Families may even be related
Furthermore, it appears that the González and Hogg families may in fact be related. At what appears to be Elizabeth’s Facebook account, her friends include Margarita and Guadalupe González, the mother-in-law and sister-in-law of Kevin Hogg’s sister Katherine González.
And another oddity, why did a dog drive by Emma and David in a truck during their CNN fake news interview?
