The War Between Narcissists

In the recent child custody trial featuring Alex Jones and his ex-wife, a psychiatrist noted that Alex Jones fits the model known as a Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

During the coverage of that trial,  an April 19, 2017 Op-Ed piece was published at latimes.com entitled, Is Alex Jones an extreme conspiracy theorist or a giant troll?  Here’s why the answer matters.  The author, Ken White is a criminal defense attorney and 1st Amendment litigator at Brown, White & Osborn LLP in Los Angeles.

Ken White asks, “Is there a difference between the persona we offer to the world and the person we truly are? That question is as old as philosophy, poetry or adolescence.  But here’s a modern American twist:  What’s the legal difference between the personas we offer to the world and our true selves? This week, infamous conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been exploring that subject in a Texas courtroom as he resists his ex-wife’s attempt to secure full custody of their children.” Click on the link in the prior paragraph to follow the author’s discussion of the question he has raised.

Matthew 12:34-37 says, O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things?  for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things:  and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.  For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.

The Christian Alternative Media has several radio hosts who assert that they are Truth-Tellers, and should their voices be silenced, truth will also be silenced. Does it matter what the character and heart of such men are,  who give their voices over to the airwaves of the Prince of the Power of the Air?

The Bible indicates that the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18).  There is a tipping point, a point of no return for many who mishandle the truth of salvation;  when such are turned over to Strong Delusion, by God himself (2 Thess. 2).

Presently, several Alternative Media radio hosts are claiming that Mainstream Media, politics, bloggers and others are trying to shut them down. Is there any real basis in fact for this complaint?  Or does the real problem lie within these men who have mishandled the facts and Truth itself, for narcissistic personal gain? Have they ever regarded the sound counsel of others as worthy of their attention?  Or does their I Phone have only one phone number on their speed dial, as the following cartoon so cleverly illustrates?

On April 30, 2017, Douglas J. Hagmann published an article called The War Against Truth and Truth-Tellers on his website HomelandSecurityUS.com.

Hagmann wrote, “On Friday, April 21, 2017, a female Michigan blogger and former Fox News contributor appeared on the Pat Campbell Show on KFAQ in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  In the wake of Bill Reilley’s departure from Fox, she made accusations suggestive of sexual harassment against Sean Hannity that reportedly happened over a decade ago.”

Because he also noted that she had made prior accusations of plagiarism, but refuses to state her name, we are forced to look beyond Hagmann’s article to discover that the person in question is none other than Debbie Schlussel  who had written an article on August 18, 2006, almost eleven years ago, entitled, UH-OH! Northwest “Intelligence” Network Steps In It:  Fake “Terrorism Expert” Douglas Hagmann Admits Plagiarism, Fabricated Info.

With regard to the Hannity story, according to heavy.com, “In an interview with LawNewz, Schlussel tried to clarify her story. She said Hannity never sexually harassed her, but she still thought the incident she described on April 21 was “weird”. “I would never accuse him of that.  Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that”, Schlussel told LawNewz….Sclussel also told the site that Hannity’s legal threats were “laughable”, adding that his claim that she’s a “serial harasser” is “defamatory”.  “Everything I said was true, and truth is an absolute bar to defamation.  He on the other hand has a murky record on truth,” Schlussel told LawNewz.

Heavy.com in the same article, also posted this copy of Hannity’s legal threats:Doug Hagmann uses this incident, which is of little concern to 99.99999% of Americans, to voice his own personal grievances.  He states, “Last Monday, Mr. Hannity opened his show with a strong rebuttal, denying her claims about this issue and others raised in the past, stating that he would respond with appropriate (and in my opinion, well-deserved) legal action.  He also stated, nearly verbatim, many of the same things I have been reporting on my radio show for the last year- that there are individuals who have been tasked with transcribing nearly every word spoken by the politically conservative hosts in the media (and many larger voices in the “alternative media”.)

He adds, “One might legitimately ask why someone would engage in such a mundane and tedious task.  There are multiple reasons for this, yet all lead to the same objective:  Silence and forever shut down conservative voices exposing the criminality and evil of the Progressive, Communist Left.”

“The process is to de-contextualize our statements and republish the content in such a manner that would simply but effectively impeach our credibility. Such is consistent with the Progressive’s use of the phrase “Fake News,” which has already become a tiresome moving target of meanings.”

He goes on to declare “Another purpose strikes at the heart of shutting down independent researchers whose only goal is to report the unvarnished truth:  to use such de-contextualized material as a weapon to dissuade potential sponsors and to “scare off” existing sponsors, thereby silencing the conservative voices by cutting off our revenue.”

I ask,  Doug Hagmann, please give us one detailed example for our readers where the transcription of your words were de-contextualized.

So while Douglas Hagmann is whimpering that he has drawn fire from “various bloggers, authors, detractors, disruptors, serial stalkers and litigants”, the very next day on May 1, 2017, Alex Jones published a short video extolling the virtues of being relentlessly attacked. These opposite positions are in fact two sides of the same coin.

I found it amusing that Alex Jones personally demonstrated to all viewers of his video, including the lawyers representing Chobani Yogurt, why their defamation damages are probably more extensive than even they imagined.

The title of this curious speech by Alex Jones was entitled Infowars Traffic Explodes Under MSM Attack, and can be located on the Alex Jones Channel at this link.

Here is a partial transcript of his argument:

There are people that believe Mainstream Media and believe the hype and there are people that don’t. (The screen shows INFOWARS.COM YOU ARE THE RESISTANCE!)

This morning I was talking with one of my friends and he said to me, he said, “Alex, man you’re-Infowars is going to be shut down soon!  Wow, your traffic’s down 85% and you don’t have any audience-everyone’s turning against you.”

And I asked him, I said, “Where’d you get that information?”

  He said, “Uh, I saw it on Infowars.com being spammed in the comments.” 

And I looked at my friend who I’ve known for more than a decade and I said, “Well, you know that’s part of a PR campaign of disinformation, right?” 

He looked at me and said, “Is it really?  I mean they attack you every day on every major news channel almost every night on the Late Night Shows, from Jimmy Kimmel to Stephen Colbert…you’re on CNN or MSNBC every night saying you’re Fake News, saying you’re a liar, saying you’re an actor, saying you’re a fraud, … how could you survive that?”

And I looked at him, I said, “We’re bigger than we’ve ever been.  We have more traffic, more people, more affiliates, more listeners and more revenue than Infowars has ever had in 22 years.”

And my friend looked at me like I was a liar and said, “We’ll see”.

And if you could understand that statement, you could understand everything in this world today.  There are people that believe Mainstream Media and believe the hype and there are people that don’t.  But if Mainstream Media can get enough people to believe something and get enough people to buy into it then it becomes self fulfilling prophecy.

I just got a call from a New York Times writer, a very prominent writer last night who wanted to talk with me, and I’ve known him for about 16-17 years, so I called him back, and they said later, “I don’t agree with your politics but it’s clear that about the yogurt lawsuit and the Democrats trying to get Pizzagate place to sue you, they’re in D.C. and the media saying you’re Fake News and the one sided coverage on your custody battle for your children, and all the major news channels attacking you that they’re trying to shut you down.”

And I said, “Do you think that I need to be shut down?” 

And they said, “No, if you stop bashing the Muslims who are nice peaceful people, you don’t need to be shut down.” 

“Oh, is that a message?”  And the person went silent.

So here’s what’s happening. 99% of people are followers.  Most people act like they’re leaders.  But a leader does what’s right, regardless of what happens to them individually, for the greater good of the species.  Now don’t get confused by that and think that means we’re collectivists-just give ourselves over to some slave master that directs us around for the greater good-we’re not a bee hive or an ant hill,- an ant colony.

But what I’m going through is no longer a microcosm, but it is on a smaller scale what’s happening to President Trump.  And it’s a Beta Test.  I’ve been picked for the Test.  The Test Pilot of the Globalists.  I don’t work for them-don’t like them, but they’ve chosen me as the Test Pilot.   I’m like the chimp that they’ve fired up into space to see what happens to me to test the News Wars. 

The Pentagon, the CIA, the Broadcast Board of Governors of the FCC having Congressional Meetings are saying “We’re gearing up to take out Alex Jones and other Fake News and we say we can do that because they work for the Russians.  So I’ve now been dehumanized, and I’m a foreign spy, see, with no evidence, no jury, never get to face my accuser, never get to respond to the news, don’t get to go before the Congress at a hearing.

They were calling real Reds in front of the House of Un-American Activities Committee.  Some were innocent, some weren’t but at least they got to face their accuser.  Not in the 1984 scenario of 2017.  So I’m a Russian spy they say.  I’m a racist.  I’m a homophobe.  You name it…I hate women.  You don’t see any proof of that- but they don’t care that’s what they say! 

And that’s the accepted Kosher politically correct thing to do whether it’s in a civil trial for your children, or whether it’s on the news-as you sit there and can’t talk and the Mainstream Media, the Rachel Maddows, the Colberts, the lawyers, whoever it is, they point at you and they say, “That’s a person that doesn’t think women should be able to be a judge, that’s a person that’s racist, that’s a person that’s in the KKK, that’s a person that’s a cult leader and brainwashes children.  That’s a person that’s BAD.  And they all point at you.  And they feel strong in the big collective of the corporate system of going along with that narrative-it’s very inviting, it’s very sexy, it’s very alluring to imagine you’re powerful through the power structure.  To imagine you’re powerful because here’s what’s happening. The followers are scared….(6.22)

(8.04) Alex Jones has everyone going after him, second only to Trump.

(8.19) I’m so glad they are attacking me everywhere, I’m so glad they are lying about me everywhere.  I’m so glad they’re moving heaven and earth to politically assassinate my character- because that means that I’ve dealt them with grievous blows, that means I’ve really counted in this life…(8.36) I wasn’t a third measure, or a tenth of a measure of a man.  I measured up to my ancestors.  I did what it took.  I didn’t back down. Victory or Death, like Colonel Travis at the Alamo.  And I’ll say that now, Victory or Death!! I’m the opposite of scared now. I am totally invigorated, empowered…..

This audio is almost 16 minutes, and later on Alex Jones sketches on a napkin the approximate graph given by Google Analytics which shows that at one time he had 40 million listeners, which rose to 80 million during the election, and has presently plateaued at 60 million.  (It is interesting to note that these figures would appear to differ from what I have been told are shown by another well known analytical company which credits Alex Jones with an audience of several million more persons.  I am unable to verify any of these figures, as this information is known to paid subscribers, and has not been displayed as proof.)

So here we have two major Alternative Radio Hosts with similar enemies; yet one is declaring that they are being taken out, and the other declares that they are prospering more than ever.

Do such men hold the corner on Truth?  Just because someone banters around facts and agreed upon assumptions, does not mean that they deserve to be exalted as super heroes of the Truth standing against the criminal corruptions of our American corporate and governmental institutions.

When it comes to the reporting of the news, there is such a thing as genuine, sound investigative reporting that researches facts and events to present a report that is of genuine benefit to our society at large. We need to reinstate those old fashioned standards of journalism which exemplified the best of Free Speech in this nation.

In the War between Narcissists, Truth is trampled under foot, and the candles of wisdom and understanding are blown out, leaving us all sitting in darkness, awaiting the next 911 style event with trepidation.

 

 

 

InfoMadness

The beginning of the words of his mouth is foolishness: and the end of his talk is mischievous madness.  Ecclesiastes 10:13

It has been two months since I have written anything on the Alternative Media, as I have left off tracking the leopard Meroz, and continued on down the ordinary path of my own life. In this short time slot, I cleaned out my garden beds of winter debris,  planted some flowers and azaleas, threw out piles of notes taken on Alternative Media radio hosts, and made the long  journey, by myself, to Scotland to visit my daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren.

With this last adventure, I encountered many strangers from several nations, on 6 different airplanes, through 3 different airports, two Scottish trains, an Edinburgh city bus, and by car on one lane mountain roads with blind curves and steep cliffs. Scotland is noted for its ultra polite citizens, but I also observed that America’s general populace also retains much civility and humor as it goes about its daily business. After arriving back home, I picked strawberries from my garden and looked over my peach tree which now has lovely ripening fruit.

Then I opened my email account, and read a message sent to me on the subject of the defamation lawsuit just filed against Alex Jones by Hamdi Ulukaya, owner of the Chobani Yogurt Company.  I read the initial filing of this lawsuit, and then viewed these videotaped responses of the scowling Alex Jones to this action, linked here.

One cannot help but compare the inner disposition of Alex Jones, whom I term the InfoMadman, with the humble demeanors of the numerous strangers I had interacted with on my travels. But after all,  Alex Jones is the King of the Awakened Ones of the Alternative Media, whose  enlightened insights into government corruption, has granted him a self-defined sense of superiority, which has been reinforced over the years by a multi million dollar income. The rest of us by comparison are meant to bow down to the Awakened Ones’ merchandising of INFO, whatever that is.

Instead of addressing the simple facts of the defamation lawsuit, InfoMadman expands the story to imply, without proof, that George Soros is behind this latest attack to shut him down.  Appealing to every known interest, including the Christian versus Muslim arguments, he asks for support, both in listener loyalty and funds.  In one video Alex Jones, declares, I will stand, I will win, or I will die. One of the printed messages on the video screen is JOIN THE RESISTANCE, and he uses the language connected with the Messiah, by declaring his legal battle represents The Crucifixion of the Truth. If you view these videos which I have linked to in the paragraph above the photo, note the facial expressions, and hand gestures of Alex Jones,  which are a message in themselves, apart from his verbiage.

So what is this all about?  Well, on April 24, 2017, a defamation lawsuit was filed in the District Court of the Fifth Judicial District of the State of Idaho, in and for the County of Twin Falls, by the attorneys for the Plaintiff,  consisting of two law firms:  Deborah K. Kristensen of Givens, Pursley, LLP of Boise, Idaho and Mark J. MacDougall of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer and Feld, LLP, of Washington D.C.

The Plaintiff is Chobani, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company owned by Hamdi Ulukaya, which produces yogurt using a thousand employees in their plant in Twin Falls, Idaho.  The principal office of Chobani is located in Norwich, New York. The jurisdiction of this lawsuit is Twin Falls, Idaho due to the location of the Chobani production plant and the claim that the defendants “have transacted business within the State of Idaho and have committed tortious acts within the State of Idaho that have caused harm to the Plaintiff’s business”.

One of the most interesting aspects of this lawsuit is that the Plaintiff has requested a Jury Trial. Now should matters ever proceed to that level, and it could, if Alex Jones lives up to his I will win, or I will die proclamation, who sits on that jury will be crucial in this emotionally charged legal matter.

The attorneys for the Plaintiff in paragraph 8, under the subtitle, General Allegations provides the court with a spurious statement of their own in order to introduce the defendant Alex Jones.  They state, Defendant Alex Jones is no stranger to spurious statements.  He has claimed that the U.S. government orchestrated the 9/11 attacks and the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.  The Southern Poverty Law Center described Mr. Jones as “almost certainly the most prolific conspiracy theorist in contemporary America,” Mr. Jones has now taken aim at Chobani and the Twin Falls community.

There are very large numbers of United States citizens who believe that the 9/11 attacks were planned by government insiders, thus they are in agreement with the Defendant.   So the attorneys for the Plaintiff have already planted a fist in a tar baby, which they will have difficulty extracting themselves from.  And they used a Southern Poverty Law Center quote which could have been easily  made by a more neutral observer? One has to wonder whether attorneys as a rule live in ivory towers which are so high, that they cannot grasp the opinions of ordinary American citizens who might be called upon for jury duty.

This lawsuit then goes on to detail the source of the defamatory statements first published on April 11, 2017 on InfoWars.com and “The Alex Jones Channel” of You tube featuring reporters David Knight and Lee Ann McAdoo.

Alex Jones in his videotaped response discussing this lawsuit, says that the attorneys had contacted him prior to the filing, in an attempt to get him to retract his reporting. He claims that he did alter one headline which he changed on his own sites; however, since there are other YouTube accounts which had picked up the first video, they did not show the corrections made. Jones then claims that the tactic of the attorneys was to continue to complain, using these other sites as evidence that he had not retracted the headline.

Obviously Jones could have provided proof of his demand letters to these other sites to either remove the video or to show the corrections. If Alex Jones is unaware as to how that is done, perhaps he should get some advice from his friend, Douglas J. Hagmann, who apparently is quite effective in monitoring his own copyrighted works. For example, see this link posted by John “the Birdman” Bryant.

As Alex Jones concentrates on refocusing his listeners from the simple details of this  legal action to his expanded assertion that it is actually George Soros who is behind the lawsuit against him, all relevant commentary recedes into the background. Reference is made to the general incidents of Muslims throughout the world, including Sweden, who the geographically ignorant might assume is right next door to Twin Falls, Idaho.  The InfoMadman claims that his InfoWars news group was not the original source of the stories in question, but that they had only reposted what others had already written.

As Alex Jones draws an ever widening spiral around the very distinct and narrow legal complaint which is cited in the lawsuit, we are left wondering, how will this matter end?  Since Alex Jones claims that behind this yogurt company’s lawsuit stands George Soros who is masterminding his takedown, are we to then wonder if there is another super rich powerhouse standing behind Alex Jones, for which Alex Jones is only the front piece in this Infowar?

There may be some truth to the speculation that if the axe is being applied to InfoMadman’s Tree, then perhaps the rest of the forest is also in danger of  being cut down to size.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Disinformation, Black Ops, Two-faced Bloggers and the Art of the Illogical Argument

In the past few months, I have taken a journey through the lesser known parts of the Alternative Media, and the Facebook groups which constantly feed into the American psyche an unexamined flood of constant postings of imminent danger, accompanied by mostly banal comments and a sampling of uncensored vile language, histrionics, and porn. Every once in awhile, sound counsel and information is given, but that seems to be the exception to the rule.

So last week, my oldest daughter and her husband and children made a trip from Scotland, where they presently reside, to the US to visit family and friends. When they were staying at my house, we ended up discussing the American Alternative News Media.  My son-in-law who is a Baptist Minister, observed that the fear mindset that is being propagated here in this nation is a uniquely American thing, whereas the European common man takes a calmer approach to current events. Of course, throughout history, on both continents, we can find examples of the populace being shepherded by  political and religious leaders into unprofitable wars. So succumbing to propaganda is nothing new on the human scene.

One of the questions I wonder about is:  Why, in a free country, does an adult Christian blindly accept the opinions of total strangers and fail to examine, and to weigh, the actual facts of his own situation when making decisions which affect the welfare of his own soul, the present and future good of his own family, and his accountability to God?  I ask this question, not only because of what I have observed about the Christian Alternative Media influence on public opinion, but also because of a recent comment from a Hagmann/Quayle fan, who seems to think that I am a Disinformation Agent, rather than a Christian who simply desires that listeners and readers of the Alternative News Media improve their critical thinking skills.

Of late, I have been examining my own use of the time which God has granted me, to reflect on the words spoken and recorded by the Holy Spirit in the Bible, and to reading  how other, mostly unknown, persons have spent their days on this earth.  Why waste one’s time reading shallow Facebook posts, when deeper reflections on real life can be found at little or no cost?  The main library here in Hattiesburg has for some months been clearing out their shelves of unread books and selling them for 25 cents and under.  I now own several interesting public library books that appear to have never been read, and yet they are very well written, factual, thought-provoking books.  I just finished one on the true stories of a whaling captain who brought his wife aboard his ship of uncouth men for a journey from New England to the Pacific Ocean during the Civil War era.

Here is another book which I find highly interesting called A History of Smoky Valley Nevada, written by Robert D. McCracken, a descendant of three generations of hardrock miners, who helped operate mines, yet also obtained a Ph.D in cultural anthropology. He begins the Preface to his book with a quote from James Burke, If you don’t know how you got somewhere, you don’t know where you are.  If you don’t know where you are, you don’t know where you’re going.

Robert McCracken then says, “The usual reason given for the study of history is that knowledge of the past will spare a person or society from repeating mistakes.  This justification is no doubt true, but I believe there is another persuasive reason to study history:  It has to do with self-knowledge and identity.  Each of us is a synthesized sum of individual experiences.  Each moment of our lives results in an iteration:  New experiences are incorporated into a baseline consisting of a synthesis or pattern of all past experiences.  In a sense, each of us is the past made manifest in the present; and at each instant each of us is pregnant with future identity.  Take away our pasts and we are amnesiacs, lost in time and space with no identity. I believe much the same can be said of society…..”

What he is discussing is the ability of mankind to be self-reflective and analytical.  But I ask, if what a person mentally ingests daily is false, both evidentially and analytically, what is the end result to that man and to the society he is a part of?

Today I am going to make a few observations on a 12 minute portion of an audio of Doug Hagmann  discussing an analogy he is trying to make, in order to insinuate that the source of those individuals who disagree with his on-air discourses, are really agents of the CIA working as disinformation, black ops, two faced bloggers. In this audio he is conversing with both his listeners and with his son, Joe Hagmann, on the October 13, 2016 Hagmann Report show broadcast.  Hagmann brings up Kevin Shipp’s book, From the Company of Shadows, printed on October 16, 2012, as a point of reference in his argument.

For those unfamiliar with Kevin Shipp, according to a lawsuit filing in which Shipp was a plaintiff, he declares this about himself:   “Mr. Shipp is a former Central Intelligence Agency officer and antiterrorism expert, having held several high level positions in the CIA.  He was assigned to be a protective agent for the Director of Central Intelligence, a counterintelligence investigator, a Counterterrorism Center officer, a team leader protecting sensitive CIA assets from assassination, a manager of high-risk protective operations, a lead instructor for members of allied governments, an internal staff security investigator, and a polygraph examiner.  He was tasked with protecting the CIA from foreign agent penetration and the chief of training for the CIA federal police force.  Mr. Shipp functioned as program manager for the Department of State, Diplomatic Security, and Anti-Terrorism Assistance global police-training program.  He is the recipient of two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, three Exceptional Performance Awards, and a Medallion for overseas covert operations.  He is the author of the book, From The Company of Shadows-CIA Operations and the War on Terrorism, Ascent Pub., 2012.”

So with this in mind, we begin at about the 35 minute mark into the broadcast to hear the following: (Note: I have placed some words in bold in order to draw attention to them in my own commentary on this audio.  Also note that I have given links to articles on the internet to explain some of the topics mentioned, if you are unfamiliar with what is being discussed).

Doug Hagmann:…..  I want to give you some numbers.  Kevin Shipp was a, a, he was a CIA analyst and officer, wrote a book  From The Company of Shadows. Fact we, we got the, when he first wrote that book,  we were the first radio interview that he did.  And of course there was a code within that book, some of the long time listeners will remember that interview, to circumvent the CIA censors, and it’s really interesting but uh this coming a little bit from um Kevin Shipp’s and some of this information coming from Kevin Shipp in a recent talk he gave, uh but these numbers I assembled these numbers specifically for this program tonight.  Listen to this, alright?  We talk about the shadow government, we talk about the deep government, the deep state government, the shadow government, we talk about the Luciferian global elite, but who are they?  What is that?  Really, what is that?  Is it just tin foil hat conspiracy crap nonsense…is that what it is?  Well, listen to this. As of today, right now, there are 1,271 government agencies involved in um, secret programs, alright.  1,271 government agencies involved in black ops programs.  Let that sink in for a second.  1,271 government agencies involved in black ops programs.

Joe Hagmann:  I did not even know we had that many government agencies.

Doug Hagmann:   It’s phenomenal. As I mean, mind blowing. 1,931 private companies involved in the same, alright?  Nearly 2,000 private companies have been enlisted in our involvement in Black Op- black operations or “off-the-book operations”.  And these are NGO’s, these are companies that are under the secrecy clause circumventing essentially the Constitution.  Inside the United States, and this might blow your mind, there are 10,000 secret intelligence locations inside the United States and when I say secret intelligence locations they could be think tanks, they could be operational bases whatever they might be, but 10,000 located in the United States and may I remind everyone that when we’re dealing with this and specially with the CIA, and the CIA, their mandate, their ah, charter is non-domestic.  What are we doing with 10,000 locations here in the United States?  Think about that number.  That’s a lot of uh secret intelligence locations.  How about this?  Number of Americans holding and  I’ll ask, I’m going to toss this question out to you, Joe.  How many Americans do you think, and if you’re off, I’m not going to, I mean,  I had no clue, but how many people do you think, how many Americans do you think hold security clearances issued by the government?  How many Americans are bound by the secrecy agreement, that hold secret security clearances, secret designations, security clearances in the United States?  How many do you..

JH:  I’d say 2 million, maybe.

DH:  It’s closer to five.  4.8million that we know of, alright, and, and..

JH:  We have all the private contracting companies now working with  military institutions and intelligence agencies,so..

DH:  yeah

JH:  … that probably is what lead to somewhat of an increase in that number.

DH:  Well,  I thought that number, the 4.8 million, how many hold top secret security clearances?  And there are obviously clearances well above that. But there’s 854,000 right now give or take, that currently hold top secret security clearances for the US government.  You think we’re a little bit top heavy on the secrecy here?  You talk about the JFK speech on secrecy as morally repugnant, well here it is, and I found this extremely interesting.  The agencies some of the agencies involved in issuing these security clearances involved in black ops and also um binding their workers, some of their workers, employees and contractors to the giving up their rights under the Constitution to their black ops operations including of course the CIA, the FBI, and NSA, but also included in this the National Weather Service and NOAA.  Think about that.  That goes back to Dane Wigington and GEO engineering.

JH:  GEO engineering…

DH:  So you gotta know that there is something going on.  I’m, I’m headed, there’s a place I’m going with this, and I really, I’ve hinted at this before.  I’ve made some statements before, but I really want to drive this home now.  Now do you see the scope of this?  The CIA has got something called In-Q-Tel.  I don’t know how many people are familiar with that.  You’re familiar with that, Joe.  In-Q-Tel.  In-Q-Tel is a basket I suppose of, I don’t even know how would you describe In-Q-Tel?  I guess they recruit companies that could be as large as Google for example, or as small as some Mom and Pop operation, but In-Q-Tel uh collects the businesses and, and they co-opt them and they work for the, essentially work for the CIA, alright.  In this post-Constitutional government in which we live today.  Now here’s why I bring this up.  Because concurrent with the email releases, and I think some people might, the Podesta Email release, this is one thing that may surprise many people because um there is a website, it’s a known Conservative website based in the UK, this according to the Podesta email release, Heat Street, uh founder, do you know of the Heat Street?

JH:  Yeah, that’s been a website that has seen a huge rise in traffic during this election cycle.

DH:  Right, and it’s supposedly conservative UK based conservative, alright.  Well one thing it you…

JH:  I wondered where that just popped up from.

DH:  Well, OK.  But the Podesta Emails of here lately um revealed that the Heat Street founder conservative based   Heat Street UK website founder Louise Mensch is an advisor for the Hillary Clinton campaign, as close to Hillary Clinton.  Now, folks, again think about this. Think about what I’ve been saying here for the last couple of, several weeks, months, maybe, about the infiltration and about how people on our side have been co-opted in which you think you know to be true is not true at all.

Now I’m not saying this, the Podesta Emails revealed that the Heat Street founder, this conservative UK based conservative website Louise Mensch is working for Hillary Clinton, the campaign.  This according to the Podesta Email  uh disclosure.  I will say this-this is not confirmed but this is based on my investigation-I personally believe, it’s my professional opinion, that the, all of the anti-Trump material that has been released, has been released by Paul Ryan and the GOP establishment that includes the Bush family and that includes the current Republican Senators and Congressmen.

Now think about that.  The reason I mentioned, I’m going to go back one step, and the reason I mention about Heat Street is because of course Louise Mensch is an author of books that are supposedly, and an author of articles that are supposedly taking Hillary Clinton to task.  But on the flip side of that you’ve got this supposedly conservative allegedly conservative person that’s working for Hillary Clinton.  But you wouldn’t know it because she is coming out and writing articles to the contrary.

We see this here, directed at  the Alternative News Media, and this is extremely important what we’re seeing take place right now against Hagmann and Hagmann Report, against myself personally and others, including people like Dave Hodges, Alex Jones, Rick Wiles, Steve Quayle.  We have the same problem. Or we are experiencing the same blowback here.  You would think OK, you may come across on the internet people saying, “Oh, well, they’re really, the big thing is they’re not Christians, they are, they’re bad Christians, oh they’re just ah, they’re Fear Porn people.  They are whatever, this or that”, and you look at who’s lobbing the accusations and, and, it would appear that they could be legitimate Christians or legitimate Conservatives having legitimate complaints. 

Well, the very playbook that I just gave you, the fact that, that the Podesta Emails ripped open, laid out, that Louise Mensch as the founder of Heat Street website is actually working on behalf of Hillary Clinton is the exact, and I mean the exact architecture behind the attacks that we face.  So the reason I brought this up is all of us in the Alternative Media which has now been branded Alt Right.  Folks, we are now um on the hog list, the short list, for censorship which is a good thing in my view because now we’ve, I don’t want to say we’ve made it to the big leagues, but we’re making a difference because you’re not going to get fired at, unless you’re over the target.  So I think we are accomplishing our mission of information and sharing information analysis.

But we are fighting this Leviathan, as I mentioned before, we’re fighting this Leviathan of Black Operations of 1,271 government agencies involved in those secret black ops, and 1,931 private corporations and over 10,000 secret intelligence locations located here in the United States, and 4.8 million people in this country holding security clearances; many of whom are involved in the black ops and the 854,000 plus holding top security clearances and this, the…

JH: Think of the money that it takes to fund these Black Ops operations….(47.25 mark)

Commentary:

Within the body of this dialogue, Doug Hagmann tells his listeners that he has a goal in mind, a place where he is headed with his background information on the CIA and the Podesta Emails released by WikiLeaks, and the two faced behavior of the founder of Heat Street, who at the same time as appearing as a conservative critical of Hillary Clinton, is in truth helping with her Presidential campaign.

What he lays out in terms of CIA based disinformation, black ops, and a two faced UK blogger, he later refers to as a playbook, or an architecture behind the attacks he is personally facing. Taking this larger scenario which he has painted, he transfers this  analogy to his own personal situation,  in the form of an illogical argument that the internet attacks against him, and his Alternative Media friends, which appear to be legitimate complaints from legitimate Christians and Conservatives, are suspect, and connected to a Leviathan of Black Ops.  Doug Hagmann does not name the names of the greatest adversaries he faces on the internet; therefore  his listeners cannot judge for themselves the soundness of his argument.  Just in case one of his listeners runs across one of his critics on the internet, he trivializes those bloggers as being whiny complainers who make accusations of fear porn and pose questions about the genuineness of the Christian salvation of Alternative Media radio hosts and writers.

The first part of Hagmann’s narrative sets up broad based apriori statements consisting of certain perceptions of the CIA held by the American public. As everyone knows, the CIA does not have a good public image because of the clandestine operations in which it has been involved over the years, particularly where it served questionable political goals in Vietnam, or South America and other places.  So using this natural aversion to the CIA which the average American feels, Hagmann  then sets up a strategy where he relies on the authority of a former CIA officer, Kevin Shipp, who experienced problems involving CIA censorship of his publication(s). Thus a former CIA insider becomes an instant free speech hero after retirement, by fighting the censorship efforts of the ClA who suddenly becomes the bad guy to Shipp, after he has faithfully cashed his years of paychecks from them with no moral qualms.

Hagmann quotes numerous statistics from an uncited Kevin Shipp speech, so that the listener is unsure of where these numbers were derived. But the net effect of Hagmann’s statistics is to induce in the listener the impression that the CIA, who has a non-domestic mandate, has in fact positioned itself in the United States to co-opt American citizens and private companies through security clearances and black operations, which Hagmann defines as “off-the books” operations. Hagmann uses the terms infiltration, referring to the co-opting of people on “our side” who seemed to be ones that could be trusted, but proved later to be untrustworthy.

As an example, Doug Hagmann brings up a recent revelation from the Podesta Emails which WikiLeaks published on October 7, 2016.  Joe Hagmann makes a statement about the sudden mysterious rise of the UK website Heat Street during the US Presidential campaign, but what they both fail to mention is that the Heat Street founder Louise Mensch had been a Conservative Party member of Parliament, and English and American definitions of words are not necessarily equivalent, especially when discussing politics.

Rupert Murdoch is the financial backer of Heat Street, which would have pushed this website to top readership within a short time period, so the mystery of a quick rise to prominence is solved there.  But the point which Hagmann wants to make is that Mensch represents a two faced Conservative/Liberal agenda designed to undermine public opinion, at will.  Now why Hagmann ever trusted Louise Mensch in the first place, I have no real clue; perhaps it has to do with her Roman Catholic background, her low cut blouses, the fact that she suffers from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or some other factor which has “Truth which can be trusted” written all over it.

So from this Large Distorted Picasso Painting of the CIA overstepping its mandate with local black operations co-opting American citizens and businesses via security clearances and presumably monetary backing, and the example of a two faced blogger involved with Hillary Clinton’s campaign, Doug Hagmann claims that the same playbook, the same architecture is present in internet attacks on the Alternative News Media in the US, and especially on him personally. Now we are discovering the true motive behind this illogical analogy which we are to believe.

Now concurrent with this audio, is the fact that for some mysterious reason Doug Hagmann removed his article published February 10, 2015 from his website, which had been titled, Setting the Record Straight:  Joint Response Addressing the Character Assassinations Underway.  One of the targeted individuals in that piece, later filed a defamation lawsuit against the authors, Douglas Hagmann and Stephen Quayle.  That lawsuit mentioned several instances of defamation as well as citing that particular article which was recently removed.  I am not privy to the backstory behind the removal of that article; an article which had been available for public viewing,  some 600 days or so.

As a disinterested observer, I would like to point out that the use of one example of a two faced Conservative  British blogger who is helping with Hillary Clinton’s campaign is a revelation which just came out this month on with the WikiLeaks Podesta emails. But this is not the first time that Doug Hagmann has aired a similar type of grievance in connection with an author who has written about the Clintons. For example, five months ago, Doug Hagmann attacked some anonymous target, with some rather strange words at about the 1.52 mark of his April 26, 2016 broadcast,  The Bundy Women; followed by Stan Deyo on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report.

In that broadcast, Doug Hagmann had been stating his opinion that Clinton is a Communist sympathizer and Bernie Sanders is a Socialist, and then he declares, “But Hillary Clinton should be in jail, should be in prison.  And uh, it amazes me and this is something I’ve found out folks and please hear me well on this because there are books about Hillary Clinton.  Listen to me carefully about this.  I never knew this, but there are many books about Clinton by certain authors who will, who will appear to be anti-Hillary or anti-Bill or Anti-Clinton.  Uhhh!! No, they are not! They’re working for ’em!  They’re working for them, I have pictures in their apartments, yeah.  CONFIRMED. Confirmed.  We know who you are.  Yeah, Did you hear me?  It’s a game.  It’s a game…”

When I first heard this accusation, I went to Amazon.com to see how many books there are on the Clintons.  There are so many, one cannot easily pinpoint who Hagmann is referencing.  Are there really several authors who are two faced, and have pictures on their walls proving their duplicity?   I am aware of one author who has done investigative journalism on the Clintons and who was publically attacked by name by Doug Hagmann and Steve Quayle.   Hagmann sneers at his target, taunting them with “Did you hear me?  It’s a game.  It’s a game…”. Now what is the average listener to the Hagmann Report supposed to learn from such ill defined innuendos and threats?

Continuing on, the  October 13, 2016 broadcast  followed two weeks after the removal of a controversial post which Doug Hagmann and Steve Quayle wrote in 2015, which resulted in a defamation lawsuit being filed against them.  A reader of my blog emailed me in reference to the October 13th show,  thinking that I was being referenced in this accusation.  I wrote back that in all probability, Hagmann was referring to two other bloggers, or maybe even  to some political writer I know nothing about.  After all, I have never written a post against Alex Jones, although I may have  referenced his name in a sentence or two.

But soon after, on October 17th,  I received a comment shown below in connection with the Night of the Betrayers/ Dirt Communion post I did on Steve Quayle and the Hagmanns. meroz-blog-comment-1017-2016-2The comment stated among several complaints,  that I sound like a disinformation agent. Personally I thought that the comment was better suited to be attached to the Rosebud article  I wrote.  But reflecting on these accusations,  this comment should have been posted as a complaint against Hagmann under the April 26, 2016 Youtube video of the Hagmann Report, where Doug Hagmann, the infamous PI is claiming to know what pictures are hung in someone’s house.  Talk about following someone around, and trying to discredit them. So who really are the agents of Disinformation, Black Ops, Two Faced Bloggers, and The Art of The Illogical Argument?  Personally, the Hagmann Report deserves a five star rating for their steadfast contribution of disinformation to the American public via the Alternative News Media.

 

 

 

 

 

The Restrainer Prophet: David Chase Taylor of Truther.Org

Until one evening in 2014 when I heard Douglas Hagmann discussing the prophetic accuracy of  David Chase Taylor, I had never before heard of truthernews.wordpress.com,  also known as Truther.Org:  Peace by Revelation.  What was under discussion with Hagmann’s guest was the explosion of the Antares Rocket Launch on October 28, 2014, which David Chase Taylor had one day prior, given a terror attack/alert on his timeline of breaking news.  Hagmann had insinuated that perhaps Taylor may have a special propensity for prophesying such events, since he predicted this event with such accuracy.truther-antares-explosion-2014

Using the motto Peace by Revelation, the underlying premise of Truther.Org is that if they publish an alert on a possible terror plan, the organizer of such a scheme is thereby forced to delay or abort their mission, no matter how many resources they have invested in their terror plot.  Thus every day, numerous scenarios become alerts authored by David Chase Taylor based on the frequency of certain news events and speculations centering around a personage, place or other focal point.

David Chase Taylor

David Chase Taylor

On his webpage, David Chase Taylor describes himself as “an American journalist and the editor-in-chief of Truther.org, a state-sponsored terror whistleblower website. Taylor currently lives in Switzerland where he applied for political asylum on July 17,2015. Taylor authored The Nuclear Bible, a book credited with foiling a nuclear attack upon Super Bowl XLV in Dallas, Texas on February 6,2011, and Greenland Theory:  Apocalypse Now, a book and website exposing the true power structure of the world, especially in respect to the Greenland and its primary proxy state of Switzerland which is coincidentally home to the CIA.  Taylor has published The Bio-Terror Bible, a book and website exposing the global bio-terror pandemic planned for 2015.  To date, Taylor has blown the whistle on over 100 state-sponsored terror plots, including the 2012 Democratic National Convention Terror Plot, the 2011 Super Bowl Nuclear Terror plot, the 2014 Super Bowl Nuclear Terror Plot, the Terrorgate Scandal, the 2014 Memorial Day Massacre, and the drone strike which killed “Fast and Furious” star Paul Walker.  Taylor was also the first to expose Alex Jones’ treacherous links to STRATFOR and is noted for the 10 reasons why the Rosetta Comet landing was a hoax.”

Just about every day, David Chase Taylor displays an alert claiming that the CIA desires to assassinate him, and he lists the most probable methods which might be used in such an operation.  Over at this site, he lays out his Case for Swiss Asylum, which ironically turns out to be the very location he claims is the home base of the CIA, in his article entitled, 10 Reasons Why Switzerland is Home to the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency).

There are two interesting aspects to David Chase Taylor’s mission in his daily posting and reposting of his terror alerts, which on the whole never come to pass in accordance with his observations.  The first aspect is that if he issues an alert which does come to pass, he is billed as a modern day prophet.  The second aspect is that if he issues an alert which does not come to pass, it is because his published alert caused the CIA to stand down their own operation.

As any Bible believer knows, God has established a standard for prophets which says that if they prophesy in his name and are wrong, they are false prophets.  Also in Deuteronomy 13, even if a prophet or dreamer is accurate, but they attempt to entice a person to worship strange gods, they are still a false prophet.  While David Chase Taylor has disclaimers and does not use the name of God to bolster his terror alerts, there still remains an uneasy balance between what he terms a modern day prophet and what might be viewed as being some sort of  Restrainer of that Mystery of Iniquity which we know as the CIA.

In an Author’s Note, he declares, “Because I, David Chase Taylor, officially applied for political asylum in Switzerland on July 17, 2015, the state-sponsored terror plots and so-called “natural disasters”  I expose rarely come to fruition.  In short, the Swiss CIA does not want to afford me any more credibility or publicity than they have to, lest they turn me into a modern-day prophet. (bold added)  They also do not want to provide yet another open- and-shut case as to why I deserve political asylum.  For those wondering why I would apply for political asylum in Switzerland, know this:  a) I originally applied for asylum in Switzerland on March 8, 2011, roughly 2-years before I discovered that Switzerland was harboring the CIA; and b) the CIA has historically not shat where it eats in Switzerland.  That being said, the CIA has now been exposed for the first time in history.  Consequently, they are extremely desperate and may assassinate me in Switzerland.”

In Truther.org’s Legal Disclaimer, David Chase Taylor’s “stated purpose is to stop terrorism by drawing unwanted global attention to terror plots prior to their fruition.  Terror alerts and warnings made by Truther.org DO NOT necessarily imply that these terror events will transpire in reality but rather that there is a distinct possibility that they may occur based on breaking terror-related news,  events and data.  Historically speaking, once a major false flag terror plot is exposed it is immediately canceled, postponed, or reworked (e.g. the 2011 Super bowl Nuclear Terror Plot, the 2014 Super Bowl Terror Plot, the 2014 Freedom Tower Nuclear Terror Plot, etc.).  State-sponsored acts of terror must have a prior paper trail in order to set-up patsies, prime scapegoats, create plausible deniability, and mislead the public from the usual suspects of terror which work at the behest of the CIA in Switzerland. Please support real citizen journalism and help make terrorism a thing of the past.  Blessed are the Peacemakers. Namaste.” (bold added)

The sentence, Blessed are the Peacemakers comes from the Bible, Matthew 5:9 which says, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.” But Taylor only quotes the first half, and replaces “for they shall be called the children of God with Namaste, which is a Hinduism for “I bow to the divine in you”.

Now here is an interesting false balance; and as it is scripture that interprets scripture,  one cannot substitute the words of God with the words of strange gods, without getting into trouble on various fronts, say Deuteronomy 13, perhaps.   Throughout the thinking of David Chase Taylor, we find a constant balancing of subtle opposites.  In the Bible the way that we know that a prophet has been called of God,  is that their words come to pass.  If not, the “prophet” has spoken presumptuously. So this test of a true prophet is made of none effect be another “law”;  that being a restrainer of evil plots nullifies a true prophet’s predictions by effectively causing them not to come to pass.

There is a reason why God sets forth a sarcastic challenge in Isaiah 41:23-24, saying,  “Show the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know that ye are gods:  yea, do good, or do evil, that we may be dismayed, and behold it together.  Behold, ye are of nothing, and your work of nought:  an abomination is he that chooseth you”.

In looking over the Truther News website, I am struck with its sophistication, both in the quality of writing, and the graphics. And as it is a free website powered by WordPress.com,  we are delivered from the presence of shoddy advertisements, donate buttons, and other commercialisms.   Aside from the strangeness of the overall philosophy of the author, I do find many of the articles rather interesting and thought provoking.

But I have to wonder how the author pays his bills in a foreign country where the standard of living and costs are very high.  For all I know, this website is actually written by the CIA for some strange purposes which they uphold.  After all, every day someone has the tedious task of changing the dates on the reposted news alerts.  Also  every day there is the task of examining numerous news stories in order to provide a documented source base to ground all these speculative alerts into a single focus.  And why after all this time being refused for asylum in Switzerland, does David Chase Taylor continue to desire to stay in the so-called home nation of the CIA, in which he claims he is the first journalist to disclose this “fact”?

There are several interesting posts done by David Chase Taylor on his theory that the home base of the CIA headquarters is actually Switzerland, rather than the United States of America. And then there is his assertion that their headquarters are underground, beneath Lake Geneva, with entry points located at CERN.

In the article called 10 Reasons Why Switzerland is Home to the CIA, the summary points are listed in this screenshot:truther-cia-10-reasons-2The article, Babylon Falling:  CERN Identified As Secret Entrance to Subterranean CIA Headquarters Beneath Lake Geneva In Switzerland article posted September 17, 2015, makes for a fascinating read.  David Chase Taylor’s style of breaking down large posts into chapters, which he then summarizes at the beginning of his article, greatly assists the reader in understanding the layout of his documentation.

If you are suffering from cabin fever,  a perusal of David Chase Taylor’s articles might be just the cure; however, keep in mind that he uses some very odd weights to balance the scales of justice.

As a side note, I read that the CIA headquartered in the United States of America considers this their Scriptural based motto: And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.  John 8:32.  Now there is something to ponder on a rainy day.

 

Haranguing It All Out To Dry

haranguing it all outA listener of The Hagmann Report, (who they would consider to be a hostile witness)  sent me a link to the March 2, 2016 program, Strategies to Survive and Thrive in Rough Times, with the suggestion that I listen to Doug Hagmann’s rant in the first hour against bloggers, emailers and those who have weaponized crayons.  Somehow the premier father investigator managed to expertly intermingle his tirades with commentary on George Bush,  Iraq, and a fourteenth century church which had been blown up.  So if you decide to listen for yourself, I hope you can white knuckle it through the twists and turns in this river.

I have transcribed Doug Hagmann’s two minute tirade which begins at the 33.23 mark against bloggers who transcribe his words. Unfortunately, I was unable to interpret what he was angrily pounding on his keyboard; maybe Joe knows.   On down the stream of this video, Hagmann continued his tirade against the weaponized use of crayons, which you shall have to analyze for yourself.  As for me,  I only listened from the 33.23 rant to the end of the first hour, when I decided to throw this mess into the washing machine.

Doug Hagmann:  And you know what?  We got these little itty bitty eh these little itty bitty backbiting ankle biting Christians out there who sit there and type in (hitting his keyboard with his fingers) blogs, OK?  Can you hear that? (hitting his fingers again on the keyboard) type in blogs and they say well did you hear what he said?  Did you hear what he said?  He said that the yuh he should oh (Joe interjects “the end fight”) the yeah they really should oh my goodness are they gee whiz do you know something?  Do you know what Doug said? Or do you know what Steve said?  Or can you believe this because you know I went to church and and this is not Godlike alright?  Well Doug, you know what the the the OK I think I know I am mixing things.  I know you (ie. Joe) are attempting to kind of quell my my anger  but I am going to tell you something.

You you out there you out there behind the keyboard who sit there and type every friggin word that we say in this studio, and I know you do because I read it, and I get emails on it.  You sit there and monitor everything we say but by God you holier than thou Christian, by God do you think for one second you can turn your attention on what really you should be uh pissed off about?  You should be pissed off  about that twenty seven thousand square foot 14 century old huge hole in Iraq.  That’s what you should be mad about!  Instead of sitting there saying Oh, well, did you hear what he said? Did you hear that?  Ahh, that’s unbiblical, I think we should take OH COME ON!!  Grow some, men, grow some kahonies.  Women, I’ll tell ya, do your job, as Christians!

Joe Hagmann:  Absolutely.

I started listening to the Hagmann & Hagmann Report on Blogtalk radio probably back in 2013/14 or so, so I feel that I’ve earned the right to comment on what I’ve heard throughout this time period. As most of you know,   Doug Hagmann and Steve Quayle go way back in time together as friends, and were repeat guests on Coast to Coast AM, which covers politics,  the paranormal, UFOs and various other alternative media topics.  If you are unfamiliar with Coast to Coast AM’s history, an interesting background piece has been done, extensively documenting the connections between their radio guests in an article called Cult of National Security Trolls:  Art Bell & Coast to Coast AM by Joel v.d. Reijden.    The author has categorized Hagmann and Quayle under Necon Politics, and makes comments on their good friend Alex Jones, among others.  The interesting thing about Joel Reijden is that he is not an American, and was interested in paranormal research; therefore one cannot accuse him of being swayed by Christian doctrine.

The Hagman Report claims its listener base consists primarily of Christians. At times, the Hagmann radio show has featured church services with preaching, scripture readings and communion services, and Quayle has been documented as suggesting that listeners tithe to this program.  Both the hosts and their guests repeat the denigrating theme of complaining about what they term the Sheeplepeople, who evidence stupidity because they have not been altered by the Paradigm Shift propagandized by the Hagmann/Quayle Inner Circle of Trust. Both Hagmann and Quayle expect their listeners to trust them without question, for vetting the backgrounds of their various anonymous insider sources, which  claim to be military, intelligence or financial experts.

Sensationalism surrounds these Christian Truthtellers‘ reporting of current events, and assertions are frequently made without proper supporting evidence and facts.  A fear-based End Times Biblical scenario is promoted as a basis for selling books, gold, silver, and prepper supplies. If anyone questions their motives or facts, both Hagmann and Quayle hit back hard at these persons who do not properly exhibit blind loyalty.

The latest example is the above rant against bloggers who accurately quote their words.  The problem is not that someone has misquoted them; the problem is that someone has documented in writing what they have actually said.  Of course, no one has proven to me that there is at this moment in time, another blog out there transcribing the words of the Inner Circle of Trust other than me, so I guess I had better take Hagmann’s rant as personal.  And as my readers know, I am definitely a Holier Than Thou, little itty bitty, ankle biter Christian, who we must now presume is avidly read by none other than Doug Hagmann himself. Given that I recently heard Quayle laughingly boast that he had failed Algebra I, I must also surmise that he is a great fan of this blog.  If we subtract from my Stats page,  all of the people who I write about and their loyal following, that leaves very few readers on my side.  Apparently the problem these Christian Truthtellers have with me is that I do not go away.

Hagmann and Quayle have gotten away with much over the years in part to their creation of a large river of words flowing through radio land, which if notes are not kept, one cannot locate what they said in times past.   Hagmann’s program used to be two hours long, but now it is three hours a night for five nights a week. And he boasts, (God forbid!) that he can go on for six hours.  Fifteen hours of talk flowing along per week, which listeners then vaguely remember that they might have heard thus and so, but no one remembers in what part of which program it was said.  Transcriptions of audio are very similar to the usefulness of  transcriptions made by a court reporter during a trial. A written record can be reviewed and analyzed in a way that words flowing through our ears, never can be.

As Christians, we should be cognizant of God’s words,  our own words, and also of those words coming from persons who highly influence our thinking.  There are many Christians who listen to The Hagmann Report daily; that is three hours of hearing the words of men who deliberately are molding the thought patterns in the mind of each listener. 

Doug Hagmann as Chief Propagandist,  is the ultimate hypocrite in lashing out with the “holier than thou” accusation. Do you recall the hubris displayed by both Hagmann and Quayle on air and in their February 10, 2015 article, Setting The Record Straight:  Joint Response Addressing The Character Assassinations Underway? Both Hagmann and Quayle consider themselves to be without reproach as the Watchmen of God.  If you recently listened to the Timothy Alberino carbon monoxide story with Steve Quayle, everyone is extolling each other’s integrity.  The same was done by Alex Jones recently, when he exalted the foresight and knowledge of his guest Doug Hagmann, on his show.  All these men are beyond reproach in their own view. So what does Jesus Christ have to say about such a high view of self?

Matthew 12:33-37 says, Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt,; for the tree is known by his fruit. O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.  A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things:  and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.  But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.  For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.  Was Jesus Christ speaking only to those stupid Sheeplepeople sitting in the pews of churches where repentance is not preached?

Doug Hagmann just  cannot bring himself to give bloggers and emailers who do not exalt him,  credit for being good family members, good neighbors, or good Christians who have done many charitable works,  obeyed the Great Commission to make disciples and preach the gospel to the lost. Surely anyone who questions the words and motives of the anointed Watchmen deserve, in their view, to be reproved for obeying the Lord, rather than them.

I don’t know if Doug Hagmann attends a local church, but we have heard Steve Quayle boast that he does not.  But since I do, here is something I learned from hearing the preaching of the Bible in a local congregation of believers:  Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:  For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.  James 1:19-20
