Blistering Blurbs From A Basement Broadcaster: The Day When Douglas “Courtroom Ready” Hagmann Was Visited By A Real Reporter

Alright now this is, this I have to tell you folks, this is an interview I have been waiting for, for a long time.  And just as an aside, the Rolling Stone magazine can kiss my butt,  alright?  I just had to throw that out there.  Those people who know what I’m talking about,  you know what I’m talking about.  I ain’t gonna give them any credit or any…just leave it at that.  A couple of Rolling Stone interview people in here and they turn out a trash piece, but what do you expect?  Douglas Hagmann commenting at the 32.53 mark on the November 22, 2017 Hagmann Report entitled, The Day the Music Died, JFK 54 Years Ago:  St. John Hunt & Pastor Lankford.  

If you were listening to that Doug Hagmann statement, would your curiosity be piqued?  Would you ask, what Rolling Stone interview?  Why does he think it is a trash article? It took place where? When? To answer those questions which Doug Hagmann has refused to address as a gentleman scholar, let’s begin with an audio clip made in April 2017 when those two intrepid reporters came knocking on the door.

Female Reporter: Hi!  Are you Mrs. Hagmann? 
Renee Hagmann:  Yeah, Renee Hagmann. (dogs loudly barking, woof woof, yap, yap yap…)  She won’t bite.
Female Reporter: So we went to his basement studio which is unbelievably decked out; there’s an anchor chair and everything and we asked for the court room ready documents and he said they were at the copiers and that he hadn’t kept a copy.  I mean on the 2nd he made a big declaration..
Doug Hagmann: yeah..
Female Reporter:..to the world
Doug Hagmann: Yes, I did. And that is based on the, I made that based in large part on information I got, received from my sources.
Female Reporter: OK, and you trust them so much you don’t have to go back and like check it with anybody.  You really believe that.
Doug Hagmann: I think that’s a little bit uhh, no, It’s I think that there was enough supporting evidence or supporting documentation on the evidence which was documentation to substantiate the veracity of his assertions…now..
Female Reporter:  What documentation?  We don’t have any!
Doug Hagmann:  OK, if you look at, OK, well that’s true, now, we don’t have any direct…You’re going to hit me, aren’t you?

AND HIT HIM, SHE DID!  Amanda Robb has since published a 13 page, well written and well researched article reflecting investigative journalism at its best,  in the Rolling Stone magazine.

I transcribed the above conversation between reporter Amanda Robb and Douglas J. Hagmann of the Hagmann Report from a 1.13 minute Revealnews.org/podcast. More than 6 months after that interview, on  November 16, 2017, Rollingstone.com published  Amanda Robb’s article entitled, Anatomy of a Fake News Scandal.  This extensive investigative piece is subtitled, Inside the web of conspiracy theorists, Russian operatives, Trump campaigners and Twitter bits who manufactured the ‘news’ that Hillary Clinton ran a pizza-restaurant child-sex ring. Amanda Robb also gives credit to the reporting of  Aaron Sankin, Laura Starecheski, Michael Corey, Jaime Longoria and Jasper Craven as she notes that “this story was reported in partnership with The Investigative Fund and Reveal from the Center for Investigative Reporting.

The Rollingstone article extensively details the explosive take off of the Pizzagate Scandal through the internet by right-wing oriented disinformation sources. I printed off a copy of this article so I could underline points of interest, and what is notable is the number of persons who were interviewed and quoted who have been tracking the effects of both automated and human-hands-on methods of transmitting propaganda throughout social media.  Also Amanda Robb traces the human element of the Pizzagate story, and how that assisted the spread of false and defamatory stories.

Of most interest to the readers of Tracking The Leopard Meroz is the interview of Doug Hagmann.  Rolling Stone writer Amanda Robb explains that “In April, Hagmann agreed to meet with me for a look at his ‘courtroom-ready’ documents on Pizzagate. His split-level home in Erie, Pennsylvania, is on a quiet leafy street.  In the front yard, there’s a small waterfall, a rock garden and a large sign warning that the place is under surveillance.  He greeted me in the foyer wearing a suit and tie, his hair slicked back with Brylcreem, and led the way downstairs to his basement broadcast center.”

Continuing, Robb says, “In October 2016, Hagmann claimed, he ‘communicated’ with a friend who knows someone affiliated with the NYPD.  The friend of the friend had been on the ‘task force’ that secured Weiner’s computer and had copied documents onto a thumb drive ‘proving’ Clinton and her associates were involved in pedophilia. ‘Now, I can’t get him to give me the thumb drive,’ he said. “Or even admit to the fact that he had it.’  When I asked how he knew the files existed, he said, ‘I trust my source’.”

“When I asked if he had verified anything, Hagmann shuffled some papers, lifting one sheet by a corner, like a poker player.  With apparent reluctance, he turned over a color copy of an image showing a clean, uninjured boy wearing a green T-shirt in a dog cage.”  Amanda Robb asks Hagmann what this has to do with Hillary Clinton.  “…the following month, at Awaken to the Shakin’, a Bible conference in Gurnee, Illinois, Hagmann presented his evidence to an audience of about 40 middle-aged churchgoers.  His courtroom-ready exhibits included the Wikipedia entry for ‘fake news’, the New Oxford Dictionary definition of ‘post truth,’ a quote by John Wayne, a photo of people sitting on a couch wearing horse masks, a photo of scars on the fingers of John Podesta.  And the kicker- a photo of a decapitated body that Hagmann said was a victim of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer and another of a sculpture by Louise Bourgeois in Tony Podesta’s home, ironically titled ‘The Arch of Hysteria.’  The two images, he said, are shockingly similar.”

So what impact did Douglas Hagmann have with his “courtroom ready” fake news story across the internet?  Amanda Robb states, “It was Hagmann who-four days after Carmen Katz first posted the story and six days before Election Day- brought Pizzagate from social media to fake news’ largest stage.  On the November 2nd broadcast of Infowars, arguably the most influential conspiracy-theory outlet in the country, with 7.7 million unique visitors to its website a month, Alex Jones asked Hagmann to tell his audience what sources had revealed about the emails recovered on Weiner’s computer. “(T)he most disgusting aspect of this is the sexual angle,” Hagmann said.  “I don’t want to be graphic or gross here….Based on my source, Hillary did in fact participate on some of the junkets on the Lolita Express.”

Amanda Robb adds, “The story took off.  Google Trends measures interest in topics among the 1.17 billion users of its search engine on a 0-100 scale.  On October 29th, the day Katz posted the story on Facebook, searches for “Hillary” and “pedophile” ranked zero.  Ninety-six hours later, when Hagmann “broke” the story on InfoWars, they scored 100.”

The higher the numbers of viewers, the greater the monetary rewards; the higher the amount of filthy lucre, the greater the guilt of the one who profited from bearing false witness

I find it interesting that the information by Rolling Stone that Alex Jones receives about 7.7 million unique visitors to its website a month. Recently, I was listening to the Doug Hagmann Radio Show which airs in the morning, and at the 25.32 mark of the November 14, 2017 broadcast, Criminality of the Communist Progressives & Censorship of the Truth Seekers”, Hagmann states, “We’ve got a pretty formidable footprint in the Alternative Media…our program reaches I don’t know-downloads last year on just one platform alone, 70 some million downloads uh 100 some countries.  I don’t know, we’re heard all over the world.” It is difficult to compare Hagmann’s numbers with those of Alex Jones as it does not appear that he is discussing unique viewers, but rather the number of views. However, 70 million a year downloads is 5.8 million a month, and that is an impressive statistic.

Hagmann reverses his opinion of secret sources

I have long questioned the veracity of Doug Hagmann’s sources, and especially those who have hidden their true identity behind a pseudonym, so I was interested in the self serving commentary of Hagmann just one day before the Rolling Stone article was published. Recall that Amanda Robb had asked to see his courtroom ready documentation on Pizzagate which he had received from sources which he does not name, and he also failed to prove that his documentation even exists, by claiming that it was at the copier’s. Here is what Hagmann had to say about another form of hidden sources; those who hide their identity behind a pseudonym.

On the November 15, 2017 Doug Hagmann Show called News, Clues and Hints, at the 28.22 mark the topic of the recent internet sensation called Q is remarked upon.  “…my whole gut instinct about this, is that we are being gamed.  Now does that make the information that is being, um, posted by Q any less real or whatever,– or I just guess briefly what I’m talking about that is, there is an anonymous character, anonymous individual, or anonymous entity who is referenced just simply by the letter Q who has posted a series numerous times, a series of questions of statements, really one-liners if you will, about uh what’s really currently taking place.  And it’s almost like this mental jigsaw puzzle with these supposed clues about what’s really going on.  And the lot, I mean we’re talking a lot, and I mean tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of people involved in attempting to decipher what Q meant.”

Hagmann continues, “Well my whole idea is very simple, with respect to this:  If you have information specific to a certain topic or a crime or activity just come out and say it and identify yourself as you say it. Um, if you noticed in our flagship program, we have not, and we will not any longer allow anyone on our program who does not identify themselves or let me clarify this, we have to know their full identity to us and the only way someone is getting on our program using a pseudonym or not being named with their full name so everyone can know who they are-the only way they’re….the only way we’ll bring someone like that on is if there is a legitimate, and by legitimate, I’m talking about an individual who is going to be testifying before Congress, or testifying in a jury trial or trial situations that has information relevant to current events.  So in other words, we will grant anonymity only if it’s truly legitimate and will be spelled out before they appear on our program and that’s just standard operating procedure now.”

“So I have kind of a problem with the way the information by this anonymous individual is being thrown out there” Douglas Hagmann explains, “because if you really look at all of the information, and again, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, don’t worry about it.  But if you look at all of the statements, questions, partial statements, the one liners, it’s almost it, it could be the byproduct or the direct product of someone’s own analysis of open sourced data, so I’m not, I’m not super-impressed, uh I’m not even impressed.  I’m somewhat underwhelmed, I suppose, but I’m watching it none the less…”.

Well, Douglas Hagmann, I have a problem with the exception you allow in your new pseudonym policy.  Remember your interview with Rebekah Roth, who claimed to have real documentation which she would not reveal, yet wanted to sell her fictional books so that we might all guess what that evidence might be?  She claimed that someone of high import wanted her to testify before Congress. So under your new policy, would she be exempt from your pseudonym policy? Why have any exceptions at all?

One last quote from the Rolling Stone story, Anatomy of A Fake News Scandal, ” As Harvard’s Benkler puts it, ‘The right-wing-media ecosystem had become so hyperpartisan, so self-referential and so superinsular it often simply ignored information that’s disconfirming.’ ” Ignored information that’s disconfirming.  That sums up Doug Hagmann’s approach to truth telling, especially when it comes to the part he has played in spreading false information on the internet.

The Mandalay Effect on Dinosaur Adventure Land: The New Bohemian Grove for the Reptilians Among Us

“The two of them were camping in Mandalay, the most exclusive bunk site in the encampment, the one on the hill with the tiny cable car that carries visitors up to the campground”.  So wrote Philip Weiss for the November 1989 edition of Spy Magazine.  Weiss had secretly entered the Bohemian Grove 28 years ago, and wrote his observations using the headline, Masters of The Universe Go To Camp:  Inside the Bohemian Grove.

Almost 11 years later, on July 15, 2000, Alex Jones was raised up in our Alternative Consciousness when he walked inside the Bohemian Grove with cameraman Mike Hanson and produced a video of their adventure. Just as this accomplishment was slipping from our collective memories, in 2005 Alex Jones made another video called The Order of Death using film footage taken by Christopher Link Jones,  using the pseudonym Kyle, who claimed to be an employee of the Bohemian Grove.

At the 8:40 mark, Alex Jones says, “There was a surprising development in the summer of 2005. A Bohemian Grove employee decided to videotape some of the activities in the Grove and to give us the footage, the footage you’re seeing was shot on a tiny digital camera so the quality isn’t the best but the images are powerful.  That individual that gave us this footage asked that we not release their name.  Our source was able to confirm what we had seen, and internal Bohemian Grove documents and annals that the elite of the elite attend the Grove. Our source personally saw New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson in attendance, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, the famous newsman Walter Cronkite and countless other luminaries”.

“Without giving away of the identity of our source we can tell you this:  the most elite encampment within the grove is Mandalay.  Other members of the grove were not even allowed to approach within a hundred yards of this compound swarming with Secret Service, valets, private French cooks and private security men in the compartmentalized system of the New World Order.  Mandalay is an elite within an elite at the very top of the pyramid’s capstone.”

Las Vegas pyramid and the Mandalay

The Mandalay motif showed up in another context on October 1, 2017, when it was reported that a mass casualty shooting originated from the 32d floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas. Some journalists had noted the symbology of the number 32, the floor  beneath the elitist Sky View suites overlooking the neighboring pyramid shaped Luxor resort hotel.

The entire campus of Patriot Bible University where Dr. Dino was hatched in some kind of Jurassic Park  incubator. This place has been accused of being a diploma mill, but I’m not so sure…it looks suspiciously like a reptilian maternal hospital ward.

I do not know if anyone has noted that the Las Vegas use of the name Mandalay has an occult connection to the Bohemian Grove elite of the elite.  The way in which I began to think about the Mandalay association was circuitous at best.

I had been following some leads on aspects of the Sovereign Citizen movement, which parallel the concepts behind the latest business venture of V-The Guerrilla Economist. This philosophy has connections with the Bundy Oregon standoff, as well as the false tax arguments put forth by Kent Hovind, who called himself Dr. Dino after he paid a minimal sum to have his titleless “thesis” with the opening sentence “Hello, my name is Kent Hovind”, endorsed by the Patriot Bible University in Del Norte, Colorado.

From there, my personal CIA handler,  Google, lead me to notice a vaguely handsome mountain man who had a history of filing lawsuits, who was unhappy with Jake Morphonios. Apparently a lot of people are unhappy with Morphonios, and are trying to kill him; that is,  if you give any credence to his persecution complex.  Earlier this year he had also received a threatening legal letter from, wouldn’t you know it,  the same attorney which had filed the Robert David Steele defamation lawsuit against Jason Goodman! So as I was peering into the little Youtube screen reading that, I noticed on the side bar that  Jake Morphonios was at the Bohemian Grove this year with a drone camera. And to cap that off, recently Jason Goodman interviewed Jake Morphonios on the similarity of their legal woes, and right after that,  these two men met up in Las Vegas to report on the Mandalay shooting.

I warned you this was a circuitous route.  So after we stop for a cup of coffee, let’s leave the Mandalay at Las Vegas, and return to  the Bohemian Grove and to The Mandalay, the campground representing the elite of the elite, as the capstone of the pyramid. Why, you ask? Well, because I want to inquire into the background of that secret cameraman named Kyle, because as the crumbs on the evidence trail reveal, he became a famous jail bird martyr of the New World Order, who was befriended by another famous jailbird, the tax fraud,  Kent Hovind, known as Dr. Dino of Dinosaur Adventure Land.

One has to wonder what the quiet effect of the Mandalay imagery is on those who are always trying to make us as paranoid as they are of being caught doing whatever it is that they do. In the past, two men which led the paranoid parade, but are now deceased, Jack McLamb, a retired police officer, and Ted Gunderson, a retired FBI agent, shared the common bond of having the same webmaster.  That webmaster was Chris Link Jones aka our hero Kyle, who got a job at the Bohemian Grove, and took photos which he gave to Alex Jones.

In a January 17, 2006 article by Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson, called The Re-Infiltration of Bohemian GroveAstounding new revelations from inside source who spied on the occult elite,  Kyle is quoted as stating “that it was a constant irritant to be approached by old men and propositioned for sexual favors and asked if he ‘slept around’ and wanted to have some fun”.

The real identity of Kyle as Chris Link Jones was revealed when he was sent to jail for about 3 years after having been charged by the Orange County, CA District Attorney with 7 felony counts of lewd acts upon a child under 14, involving 6 young boys in separate  incidences between 2001 and 2004. Alex Jones, Ted Gunderson, and Jack McLamb and others protested that the elite at the Bohemian Grove were punishing Kyle  for photographing their campground. This is an interesting theory coming from Alex Jones, who after he infiltrated the Grove and made a video, was not punished with a jail sentence for trespassing, but exalted to the Mandalay “elite of the elite” level of the Alternative News Media where he rants against the rich, while he struggles through life as a mere multi-millionaire.

A friend in need is a friend indeed, so it is no surprise that the New World Order martyr Chris Jones was befriended by that other NWO martyr Kent Hovind, who languished in jail for 8 years for tax fraud, due to his delusion that the United States Government had no jurisdiction over him.

Hovind’s supporters included Steve Quayle, the Hagmanns,  Dave (Coach) Daubenmire, Sheila Zilinsky, and a number of Independent Fundamental Baptists who all claimed he was a political/religious prisoner, because the government did not like his preaching against evolution. Steve Quayle publicly prayed for Kent Hovind in 2015 and offered to pay the retainer for an attorney to represent him, even while he himself claimed to not really understand the tax issues.  Apparently no attorney would take Quayle’s money, most likely because they did understand the real issue.

Kent Hovind is an elitist among elitists, who claims he is of that Sovereign Citizen class where he is only accountable to Jesus Christ and never to the US government.  So why was he complaining about his residency status in jail?  It appears that our Lord and Savior, who sits at the right hand of the throne of God, desired that Dr. Dino sit in a jail cell for 8 years, which is a generous space of time to repent of his wrongdoing and his wrong doctrine.

The Road to Mandalay, the camp for the elite of the elites of the Sovereign Citizens of this world

Well, Kent Hovind did get out of jail in 2015, only to discover his new reality,  that his son had taken over what was left of his Dinosaur world in Pensacola, FL, and his wife had filed for divorce….so ever the opportunist,  he moved to Alabama to a New World Order where he again reigns over some property, Dinosaur Adventure Land, using the free labor and money of his followers.  There is dissension in the camp, and as I  observe their complaints, I note that the name of Chris Link Jones again pops up; you know, that guy Kyle who infiltrated the Bohemian Grove. It seems that Kent Hovind wanted one of his male followers to befriend Chris Jones, but when the pedophile reputation became known, that follower balked at obeying the wishes of Dr. Dino.

I understand the quandary this follower was in, as I once was a member of an  Independent Fundamental Baptist church.  I ended my quandary by asking the Pastor to remove my name from the church rolls. They not only removed my name from membership, but I was blacklisted.  However, 2 John speaks of those who transgress and abide not in the doctrine of Christ, and warning is given, saying for he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. This is a widespread problem in the American churches today; too many Christians are bidding con artists God Speed, rather than exposing their evil deeds. Tracking these persons leads down a convoluted trail, because their words and actions are convoluted.

In the next post, we will examine a mysterious man who is Kent Hovind’s worst nightmare, and discover the secret to how he has managed to remain sane in this strange world of Dr. Dino.

 

 

 

 

Christian Prayers which ask God to bless the actions of Corrupt Political Operatives, whose profiteering has affected the outcome of American elections

Speaking on the Alternative News Media relationship between Roger Stone and Alex Jones:  “We are now the mainstream,” Stone told me.  “CNN and the New York Times-they are the fringe.”  (January 30, 2017 The Atlantic.com article by Rosie Gray, Halycon Days for Conspiratorial Media “Alex Jones, Roger Stone, and their cohort are thriving at the dawn of the Trump era.”)

I recently read the comments on the Alex Jones Channel which were posted under a March 29, 2017 video of Roger Stone, who appealed for “Patriots to join him to fight false claims”. Numerous Christians said they were praying for Roger Stone; one going so far as to declare, “Father’s warring angels with Swords drawn are around you and Devin Nunes.  When you are on the front lines for Truth, you will draw fire, and both of you have drawn fire; however, you are not alone.  2/3 of Father’s heavenly angels are with His Kingdom Ambassadors, who are instruments of Truth and for His vision for this nation.  This morning, Roger, you are not alone.  I’m looking to hear, by faith, “Case dismissed.”  Glory to God.”

A lone voice countered, “enjoy prison stone you traitor.”

I have found many articles written on the disturbing deeds and words of political operative, Roger Stone.  Are those who think he is some kind of American hero on the frontlines of truth willfully ignorant of his lack of character? Does he surround himself with noble men of integrity, or profiteers from corrupt politics, like himself?

Roger Stone and Mike Colapietro co-authored the New York Times bestseller, The Man Who Killed Kennedy:  The Case Against LBJ, published by Skyhorse Publishers on November 6, 2013. I purchased the Kindle version for $1.99 just last week, but now I see that it is going for $8.54.  Curious about the co-author, I found his resume online which stated that he works for the Office of the Chief of Staff of the Broward Sheriff’s Office (BSO) in Florida. His employment began in April 2013 and continues to the present, a total of four and a half years.

In March of this year, Roger Stone was involved in a car accident in Broward County.  A March 25, 2017 Miami.cbslocal.com article written by Jim DeFede was headlined, Trump Advisor Claims Hit & Run “Could Be” Russian Hacking Scandal Retaliation.  “They just came at us full force,” Stone told CBS4 News.  “The driver then threw it in reverse and took off”.

This article then comments, “Stone, who has previously admitted to having ‘back-channel’ communications with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and who more recently acknowledged trading messages with the famed Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0, remains a central figure in the Congressional Investigation into Russia’s attempts to influence the presidential election.  Stone was on his way to Orlando to promote his latest book on Trump when the accident occurred.”

“Out of nowhere we were T-boned essentially by a late model 4-door what I’m now told was a Pontiac,” he said….The Broward Sheriff’s Office confirmed there was a hit-and- run crash at the time and location described by Stone….The report states that a deputy was not dispatched to the accident until 11:56 a.m.-more than 70 minutes after the crash..”

When looking at the details of this accident report, several factors are notable.  (1) This hit-and run “accident” was used by Roger Stone to claim that it was a retaliatory event.  (2) Conveniently, the sheriff’s deputy was not dispatched to the scene until 70 minutes later, and Roger Stone had left the scene by that time. Of course that time delay also gave the hit-and-run driver additional time to flee the scene. (3) Roger Stone just happens to have critical personal relationships connected to the Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel.

As of September 2, 2017, the Broward County Sheriff displayed Scott Israel as Sheriff

What is Roger Stone’s personal connection to Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel? For this, we turn to an article published August 16, 2014 by Brittany Wallman of the Sun-Sentinel, titled, Broward sheriff, ‘dirty trickster’ forge unlikely tie.

The first paragraph reads, “A campaign operative who built his career on smearing political enemies, publicly calls women the C-word and consulted for attorney-turned-Ponzi-schemer Scott Rothstein has become one of Sheriff Scott Israel’s trusted political guides”. (As an aside, Scott Rothstein was later given a 50 year sentence and is in jail for his Ponzi scheme.)

Under the sub heading, Embedded at the Sheriff’s Office, Brittany Wallman wrote the following description of four persons who Roger Stone positioned in the Broward County Sheriff’s Department as a result of his “free” work in helping Scott Israel to get elected to the Sheriff’s Office.

Roger Stone’s close ties to the Broward County Sheriff’s Department

According to Wikipedia, the Broward County, Florida, Sheriff’s Department employs 5,800 persons and has a budget of $730,000.   In the Sun-Sentinel article, “political consultant Judy Stern, who ran Israel’s 2008 campaign but no longer is an Israel ally” said, “Roger wants the amount of power he gets out of it… What an incredible position of power, to have influence at the Sheriff’s Office.”  Roger Stone claims he did all the campaign work for Sheriff Israel for free. Apparently the jail bird for the Ponzi scheme, Scott Rothstein, had told the Broward New Times in 2008, “Stone is the guy that no one wants to admit to using… But the second the shit hits the fan, it’s ‘Get me Roger Stone”.

Infowars seems to agree with the “Get me Roger Stone” cry for assistance

It was Roger Stone who introduced Alex Jones to Trump, and got him an exclusive interview. The January 2017 Atlantic article quoted at the beginning of this post observed, “Jone’s reputation as America’s premier conspiracy theorist hasn’t stopped Trump, who has a penchant for conspiracy theories himself, from directly interacting with him.  In December of last year, he went on Jone’s show, telling him, “your reputation’s amazing.”  Jones returned the favor, telling Trump that 90 percent of his audience was made up of Trump supporters-an estimate that take on greater significance in retrospect.  The person responsible for setting up the interview was, of course, Roger Stone.”

Getting back to Stone’s JFK book; one of the major sources of information is attorney, Douglas Caddy.  I just ran into an interesting August 22d post to the JFK Assassination Debate of The Education Forum, entitled, Attorney’s file on Roger Stone, LaRouche and Russia influencing the 2016 presidential election.  The person who posted this article is Douglas Caddy, Houston, Texas Attorney-At-Law.

His history in politics, as an attorney,  is as interesting as Roger Stone’s. However, he had written both Comey and Mueller about what he knows of Roger Stone, despite the fact that “I have been regularly harassed for so doing by private detectives employed by an unknown person of interest.”  Here are a couple of screenshots.  The entire article is very interesting, especially because of the long standing acquaintance of Douglas Caddy with Roger Stone, going back to 1975.

Christians need to remember that the Lord is no respecter of persons. God is not a politician who has to employ unrighteous means to get elected, as He ordained government to be an arm of authority against evil works.   Proverbs 17:15 warns, He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD. 

The so-called Deep State seems to be operating in plain sight these days, and many of those who claim to be against evil powers are the ones in fact ensuring that genuinely good men do not get elected to federal, state or local offices in this nation.

Following the Rat Lines of Source Journalism through The Fog of Disinformation

On August 25, 2017 the Alex Jones Channel featured Roger Stone and Douglas Hagmann in a video called Emergency:  Democrat Plan to Kill Cops and Overthrow Government Discovered. This wild headline highlights the extent that the major players in the Alternative News Media  will go to flee the phantoms which they created, and might just be held accountable for, by their adversaries.

Roger Stone, is notorious for his dirty tricks as a Republican/Libertarian  political operative, who was deeply involved in several presidential election campaigns.  He has been on the Alex Jones show several times, and at least once this year on the Hagmann Report.   Both Alex Jones and Douglas Hagmann are noted for their dependence on anonymous, as well as public, Insider sources for their breaking news stories, whether the subject matter concerns government actions, financial markets, or politics.

In developing today’s theme on the Alternative News Media Rat Lines linked to the so called Deep State, our foundational question is, what is Source Journalism? And how does that compare to old fashioned investigative journalism where the reporter receives information gained from one-on-one questioning of original sources?

Let us turn to Canadian journalist Barrie Zwicker, who published in June 2006 (New Society Publishers), Towers of Deception:  The Media Cover-Up of 9/11.  Zwicker, on page 169,  in a Chapter 4 paragraph heading,  A Journalist Whose Personal Research Department is the Spy Establishment, uses writer Stewart Bell as his example.  Barrie Zwicker states, “The single most noticeable characteristic of Bell’s journalism is its dependence on spooks as sources.  He has somehow, as the dust jacket of his book says, come into possession of a “a vast collection of classified intelligence documents.”  Bell himself says it “may be the largest collection outside of government.”  How does a person on “the outside” get all of this stuff?  In effect, the spy establishment is his personal research department.”

Zwicker continues,  Bell  “augments his files regularly from ‘exclusive interviews with senior Canadian counter-terrorism officials’.  Exclusive means they’re feeding him and not other reporters.  The situation here is what is sometimes called Source Journalism.  Walter Karp wrote in Harper’s magazine in 1989:  “It is a bitter irony of source journalism that the most esteemed journalists are precisely the most servile.  For it is by making themselves useful to the powerful that they gain access to the ‘best’ sources.”

Apparently, this is a widespread situation in Main Stream Media, for Zwicker on page 141, quotes William Colby, former director of the CIA as stating, “The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media.”  But does this apply to the major players in the Alternative News Media, which are always valuing themselves as a cut above others, when it comes to ethics and telling the truth?

Examples of Source Journalism in the Alternative News Media include not just Alex Jones with his covert military insider news leaks, or George Webb with his insider source who led him to believe that a dirty bomb might be on board the Maersk Memphis ship. We must also add to this list, a Christian Truther,  Douglas Hagmann,  who built his investigative reporter reputation upon insider sources  such as Rosebud, W the Intelligence Insider, and the false credentials of V-the Guerrilla Economist.  So why would any journalist who claimed to have integrity take the side of a dirty tricks political operative, such as Roger Stone when government officials want to question his actions?

Roger Stone, was granted a short half hour interview on the March 24, 2017 edition of The Hagmann Report, “Battle Ready:  Faith Goldy, Roger Stone and Kevin Shipp”.  As Hagmann awaited his guest to call in, this introduction was given:  (1:03:48) “…Roger Stone, you know he’s been in the news lately and in case you haven’t heard, he’s a little busy at the moment juggling plates uhm I, I read a, an interesting story about Roger and I didn’t know this but back when he was in first grade ah um he uh, I think I may have it here, hmm he was uh doing-involved with politics back in the first grade.  Uh he uh he convinced his first grade class to uh vote against Nixon, I think he did, despite the fact that he later worked for Richard Nixon, but um uh by convincing students that if they didn’t vote against Nixon, or by not voting for Nixon, that the school would be on Saturday.  I mean…uh, it’s just an incredible story.  His life, it’s an incredible life, an incredible journey.  And we know right now that the Deep State has declared war on him.(1:04.48)….(1:05:49)..this man has been set up so-he’s been set up…”

Roger Stone is known for having set many other people up. So why should anyone care whether this guy is “being set-up”, unless one feels a kindred spirit with him? He has always prided himself in serving the Deep State, using the most unethical means.   Stone is not above making the anonymous threatening phone call if needed, as noted in this screenshot from the New Yorker.  Note that despite Donald Trump’s disapproval of Stone’s behavior, he had no problem entering into a working relationship with him years later, when he decided to campaign for President of the United States.

If you are unfamiliar with the vast number of stories on Roger Stone, it is advisable to spend some time on the internet, acquainting yourself with the fascinating and at times,  vulgar details.

A good commentary on Stone which has many links to other sources is italkyoubored.wordpress.com. The author, who appears to want to remain anonymous, but may use the pen name F. Fred Palakon, a fictional character in a novel, published a ten part series in 2014,  called Roger Stone: Pretty Reckless Is Going Straight To Hell.  The author is very clearly a good writer and researcher,  documenting his sources thoroughly.

One of Stone’s websites is called Who Framed Roger Stone? At this website, poor persecuted Roger Stone, whose bad karma chickens are returning to roost in his highly expensive hair plugs, wants donations for his legal defense. This link also displays a copy of the lawsuit filed against President Trump and Roger Stone by 3 persons connected with the DNC, who had their personal information revealed when a hacker gave their emails to WikiLeaks.

When I looked at Roger Stone’s YouTube Account, his related accounts were interesting.  You may have guessed that he would display the Alex Jones channel, but he also shows Ask Larry Nichols, you know, that Clinton “hitman” from the good old days in Arkansas, back when Mena Airport was overrun by the CIA and drug runners.  Why not Ask Larry Nichols how to undo your bad karma, Roger?I have no clue if Roger Stone is linked to Russian rat lines.  Perhaps for once in his life, he is innocent of the charges recently leveled against him. However, after reviewing Stone’s life, and the amount of money which his crooked behavior got him, all the while wearing his infamous vertical pinstriped suits, perhaps it is time for his tailor to start measuring him for the horizontal striped suits that could become his new insignia.

For a number of years, Roger Stone was a partner in the lobbyist/political counseling firm of Black, Manafort, Stone and Kelly (BMS&K).  Here is a snippet of a 1989 Washington Post article on the clients which this firm represented.  If you read the current lawsuit against Trump and Stone which is linked in the Who Framed Roger Stone? website  above, you will note that Manafort’s name is mentioned.

As I was considering this lawsuit, and the charges of working with Russian operatives to impact the 2016 election, I came across an interesting website with a 32 page pdf  called Black Friday Report:  On Russian Propaganda Network Mapping, published November 26, 2016.  The contributors to this project call it PropOrNot, meaning, Is It Propaganda or Not? 

Two of their charts caught my eye, where they were tracking zerohedge.com as an example of their methods.  I noted that it lists stevequayle.com. along with other Alternative News Media websites which I am familiar with.This other chart reflects a different way of illustrating relationships, but also includes stevequayle.com. on their sites identified as disinformation.

This pdf is interesting to read through in its entirety,  in that it describes exactly what standards they used to analyze websites which have mimicked the Russian propaganda line in their news reporting, sometimes word for word.

I wish that more websites such as this named their contributors; however, one can review and test the guidelines and methods they used to verify that their conclusions are valid. I have linked to some long pdfs in this post, so perhaps the reader may wish to read them as a rainy day project.  Personally I hate politics, and the last time I read extensively on this topic was back when Watergate had been exposed. However, given the fears which some have regarding the present freedoms of the internet being restricted, it may be time to take a closer look at the real impact which Source Journalism has had in distorting accurate news reporting.

 

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.
