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.

New Yorker article on the Dirty Trickster, dated June 2, 2008

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 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 as an example of their methods.  I noted that it lists 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 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 Reward of Balaam the Son of Beor’s Gift of Divination: Dwelling In A Narrow Place “Where Was No Way To Turn Either to The Right Hand Or To The Left”

I.  Ambush Journalism

Over the past 693 days, I have examined and written about the fear based messages emanating from the anointed Watchmen of the  Christian Alternative News Media’s Inner Circle.  What sparked my inquiry into the nature of this group was the article published by Douglas Hagmann and Steve Quayle on February 10, 2015 called Setting The Record Straight:  Joint Response Addressing the Character Assassinations Underway.  The removal of this article from the internet was noted on October 2, 2016 by in an article by Michael Erevna called Hagmann and Quayle Take Down Their Lies “Setting The Record Straight”.

Much of the theology which is promoted by these radio hosts represents a significant departure from the Bible, even when they directly quote the Bible. At the heart of Steve Quayle’s messages are the prophetic visions and words given to Steve from 1987 to 2014.  These words have been published at his website,  in a sidebar linked here.   Perhaps it is time to ask, as Ezekiel 13:7 asks, Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying divination, whereas ye say, The LORD  saith it:  albeit I have not spoken?

On January 9, 2017,  Steve Quayle posted a QAlert which he titled, My Response To the Ambush Journalism Against Doug Hagmann, David Lankford, and SQ, Concerning V-AKA Viji Varghese- By ‘A Self Professed Unreasonable Man’-which means from the Scripture-One Who Causes Injury. 

(See screenshot below.)qalert-1-9-2017-2This QAlert is Steve Quayle’s response to John Little’s written commentary on the recent disclosure of the true identity of V-The Guerrilla Economist as Viji Varghese, whose fake identity and false credentials were promoted by Steve Quayle, Doug and Joe Hagmann, Wayne Willott AKA W-The Intelligence Insider and other Alternative Media radio hosts, to the detriment of their listeners.  Because federal criminal laws stand against such fraud, Michael Erevna of, who once was a guest on a Hagmann broadcast with V-The Guerrilla Economist, decided to publish the real identity of V on November 20, 2016.

So what excuse do Douglas Hagmann and Steve Quayle offer for promoting the false credentials of V, and then keeping silent for a number of years while Viji Varghese conned the Christian community, based on their trust of Hagmann and Quayle’s vetting of his credentials?  Now that, this blog Tracking The Leopard Meroz, and more recently, John Little of OmegaShock have been publishing the facts of this situation, all we see is a QAlert from Steve Quayle saying that the Christian Alternative Media audience should trust him, Hagmann and Lankford because they have been around for years longer than the bloggers who have reported on this fraud.  It was on that basis of trust that their listeners were conned in the first place.

Steve Quayle, how about addressing the facts and the applicable criminal penalties for the fraud which the promotion of V-the Guerrilla Economist represented, in the first place?  And now once again we hear of Pastor David Lankford stepping forward to defend these unrepentant sinners, while directing his wrath at John Little in an email.  While John Little’s name is not specifically mentioned in this QAlert, he is the main target, with the lesser targets being those other bloggers who have written on the V-the Guerrilla Economist scandal. As of  yesterday, January 12, 2017, John Little of OmegaShock has written another article entitled, SPECIAL REPORT-UPDATE-Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann, which is linked here. If you are naïve about these anointed Watchmen, please read this update from start to finish.

Michael Erevna of was one of those in the crosshairs of the February 10, 2015 ambush journalism written by Doug Hagmann and Steve Quayle.  The other target of that article was an investigative journalist, who has since filed a lawsuit for defamation against Hagmann and Quayle. I find it ironic that Steve Quayle uses the term Ambush Journalism to defame those who dare to question the words and deeds of these self-appointed “anointed men of God”.  The truth is that Quayle knows a bit about setting up an ambush himself.

II.  The Theology of Ambush

In the following section of this post I am going to step away from the particulars of this controversy, to discuss some of the scriptures which have marked the tracks left behind by the leopard Meroz, who is a Master when it comes to setting up ambushes. This blog has in the past suggested that the language of fear based messages and the setting up of fake Insiders as a source of news within the Alternative Media is characteristic of a PSY-OP. So let us wander down that road, for discussion’s sake.

Meroz, like Balaam, is what some might call a hired gun; someone who can curse another person using spiritual bullets. Now this would seem like the way to commit the perfect crime, but in truth, it is a very dangerous method of attack, because there is a real possibility of what is called The Return Blow of the curse, coming back upon the sender.

Balaam received the rewards/wages  of divination, for both blessing and cursing. The problem for this master of the return blow  was how to overcome the words of God which demand justice.  One such scripture is Deuteronomy 27:25 which says,  Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say Amen.

Balaam asked in Numbers 23:8, How shall I curse whom God hath not cursed?  or how shall I defy, whom the LORD hath not defied?   Because the LORD would not curse  Israel/Jacob, he then advised the King of Moab to set up a snare to entrap Israel in the sin of fornication and the worship of strange gods, so that the LORD’s hand was forced to judge Israel at Peor.

Now many genuine Christians receive threats and curses because of their witness against evil and wrongdoing. Generally, the Christian is protected, unless there is need of chastisement in their life, or they are in a situation similar to Job, where higher unseen actions between God and Satan are in play.

One of the most powerful Psalms which Christians can pray when they are in conflict with wicked men is Psalm 64. It begins, Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer:  preserve my life from fear of the enemy.  Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity: who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words: that they may shoot in secret at the perfect: suddenly do they shoot at him, and fear not.  They encourage themselves in an evil matter:  they commune of laying snares privily; they say, Who shall see them?  They search out iniquities; they accomplish a diligent search:  both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep. 

But then in verse 7 of this psalm,  the world is turned upside down for these wicked men who have created ambushes for the godly. It is the most fearful aspect of the sorcerer’s prayer, that what they have prayed will come back on them as the target.  Verses 7-10 of Psalm 64 make this promise: But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.  So they shall make their own tongue to fall upon themselves:  all that see them shall flee away.  And all men shall fear, and shall declare the work of God; for they shall wisely consider of his doing.  The righteous shall be glad in the LORD, and shall trust in him; and all the upright in heart shall glory.  You can be sure that the Balaams of this world have deeply analyzed Psalm 64 in order to master the skill of avoiding the Return Blow of their own words.

The book of Jude contains deep observations on certain men crept in unawares who turn the grace of God into lasciviousness. A verse or two later, Jude mentions those angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, which presumably are the fallen angels of Genesis 6.  Steve Quayle with his GenSix Productions company, his books and his radio broadcasts has explored these stories of fallen angels and giants extensively, as well as others who are prominent in the Christian Alternative News Media.

I read extensively, and read on such subjects years ago, because it is a fascinating aspect of history on this earth. But there are warnings in the Old Testament about inquiring too deeply into dark subjects, lest one become ensnared.  Deuteronomy 11:16 warns, Take heed to yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them, yet here in the Christian assemblies described by Jude, certain evil men who worship strange gods were allowed to walk freely and partake in the fellowship of the saints.

The first exhortation of Jude is to “earnestly contend for the faith”, and after describing in great detail these false Christians in the church, he gives some advice on witnessing to others in such an environment.  Jude 1:22-23  says, And of some have compassion, making a difference:  And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by flesh. Over the years I have witnessed one-on-one to many a soul, and I understand those verses in the depth of  my experiences.

One example I recall was of a person who exemplified these verses in Jude, and whose personal sin nearly caused me to be drawn into a net woven by Guile. My witness was not for nought however, as I met The Art of War by Deception with The Art of Guileless Guile. But in response to my deepest concerns, the other person who was accustomed to praying in the name of Jesus, while at the very same time rejecting the counsel of God, grew more and more angry. I am still praying that the Holy Spirit would work in the heart of this person and that they would step away from standing in the crosshairs of the judgment of God.

Often those caught in a stronghold of sin are but the victims of an ambush themselves, set up by their so-called friends, their family or their employers. We have seen what happens to the  expendable elite when the sins of their higher-ups are revealed, and those down the line of authority are chosen to be sacrificed.

Now this person whom I tried to pull from the fire would be considered an expendable elite and they identified closely with David’s prayer in Psalm 26. The first two verses are integral to this psalm, saying, Judge me, O LORD; for I have walked in mine integrity:  I have trusted also in the LORD: therefore I shall not slide.  Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

JUDGE ME-EXAMINE ME- PROVE ME-TRY MY REINS AND HEART. This can be a dangerous prayer if you really believe that you walk through life in your own integrity.  But if in truth you are walking in sin, it will be a great affront to your pride when the Lord sends one of his lesser servants to test your words and character. One of the marks of the selfless love of a faithful Christian witness is noted in I Corinthians 13:6 as that Charity rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth. It is a sign of a lack of love to ignore another person’s sin, especially if the Holy Spirit desires you to speak and not remain silent.

Even that false prophet Balaam, who was angry over being withstood in a narrow place, where there was no way to turn either to the right hand or to the left (Numbers 22:26), was forced to acknowledge his sin.  Numbers 22:31 says, The LORD opened the eyes of Balaam, and he saw the angel of the LORD standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his hand; and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face. And the angel of the LORD said unto him, Wherefore hast thou smitten thine ass these three times?  Behold, I went out to withstand thee, because thy way is perverse before me:  And the ass saw me, and turned from me these three times:  unless she had turned from me, surely now also I had slain thee, and saved her alive.

The problem with Psalm 26:1-2 being used as a prayer for one who claims to be a Christian, is a very subtle one.  The verses in the New Testament which get to the heart of this subtlety are Romans 9:31-33, which say,  But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.  Wherefore?  Because they sought it not by faith, but as it were by the works of the law.  For they stumbled at that stumbling stone; As it is written, Behold, I lay in Zion a stumblingstone and rock of offence: and whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 

It is similar to the illustration of the differences between the prayers of the Pharisee as compared to that of the Publican. Luke 18:11 says that The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. The publican who prayed in humility, acknowledging his need for mercy was the one which God justified. The word of God is as a two-edged sword and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12).

Over the past several years I have noted that the Charismatic churches are increasingly promoting the concept of Watchers and Watchmen as a gift and calling of the Holy Spirit. Watchers refer to those holy angels in Daniel 4 who delivered a decree of judgment from God.   Watchmen are men who stand upon the wall of a city to warn when the enemy approaches. This Order in the Charismatic churches appears to be some sort of anointed warrior priest class, headed by a Captain.

When one examines  the NAR(New Apostolic Reformation)/Vineyard’s promotion of a concept of prayer which is called Strategic Level Spiritual Warfare (SLSW), it is observed that it represents a military style of attack against  unseen rulers of the Satanic principalities of this world, whether it be cities, states, or nations. Unity, power, strength and commanding authority are the hallmarks of this approach to prayer, versus the humility which normally accompanies the prayers of the individual.

That such entities are real and have rule over principalities can be found in the Bible; for example, the Prince of Persia referred to in Daniel was from the unseen spiritual realm.  And so in my conception of a fallen angel named Meroz, which I use as a motif for this blog, I point to Judges 5:23 as the emblem and source of sin of a warrior sorcerous class of priests who wield the sword of guile and ambush against the genuine Christian who is reproving works of darkness.  Judges 5:23 says, Curse ye Meroz, said the angel of the LORD, curse ye bitterly the inhabitants thereof;  because they came not to the help of the LORD, to the help of the LORD against the mighty.

Note that it was the angel of the LORD who also stood, with drawn sword, to confront Balaam, because his way was perverse.

I am a Baptist and so I was taught that my final authority is Sola Scriptura. Baptists have their inherent set of sins; legalism is but one. I first discovered the priesthood of Meroz in the Baptist churches where masculine authority is a dominant trait, and membership in fraternal lodges is common.  Baptists who pray in earnest will have some experiences which might be termed “charismatic”, but generally  they have been taught that it is wise to test the spirits.

I have noticed that many of  those who identify themselves by name or practice as Charismatic or Pentecostal, often go beyond the boundaries of the Scriptures by exalting their dreams and visions, and there is little authority in these churches to withstand their abuses.  Most false prophets who are women are given great license in the Charismatic churches. By definition, false prophets are worshippers of strange gods(Deuteronomy 13).   The Charismatic churches, as a rule,  defy the warning given in Colossians 2:18-19, Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind, and not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

The danger for the Christian is to go beyond the walk of faith, and to enter into the unseen world of sorcerers who walk by sight, seeing as gods. In the occult world egregore is a common word used to represent the collective image of a group mindset.  This Greek word is also used for the Watchers. So what might be the egregore of the Watchers and Watchmen? The late David Flynn on his Watchers website displayed in his header a Pentagon, which imagery relates to the shape of the building which houses the command and control of the gods of war of our nation.

One of the egregores of America is an eagle, and as a nation we have always stood alone and above as unique in modern history, whether one considers our Christian and Freemasonic roots, our recent appearance as a world super power, our freedoms,  our economy, or our planting of the flag of Double Headed Eagle Crowned upon the moon.

The Christian Alternative News Media radio hosts have united in one common message over the past few years, and that message is that the United States of America is about to become as Babylon, fallen, fallen, fallen.  But apart from the comparison to Babylon, the sins of  America also resemble that of Esau/Edom. Within the warning of Hebrews 12:14-17, the sin of the fornication and profanity of Esau is emphasized, saying: Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:  looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled; lest there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat sold his birthright.  For ye know how that afterward, when he would have inherited the blessing, he was rejected:  for he found no place of repentance, though he sought it carefully with tears.

Fornication is a sin that does manifest itself in the flesh, but there is also spiritual fornication, the yoking of righteousness with unrighteousness. This Union of Opposing Principles can also be referred to as the Synthesis of Thesis/Antithesis. James 1:8 declares that a double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Note that the eagle which was chosen to symbolize America has a single head; whereas the ancient eagle which was chosen to represent the highest levels of Speculative Freemasonry is the Double Headed Eagle Crowned. Thus in John 19:15b we read of that strange cry of the chief priests of Israel, who were originally delivered as a nation by Jehovah, declaring We have no king but Caesar. Caesar as ruler over the Roman Empire was a double headed eagle crowned.

Several years ago my husband and I visited the George Washington Masonic National Memorial in Arlington, Virginia. That strange building was modeled after the Pharos lighthouse of Alexandria and has walls so thick that it feels like being inside of a tomb.  The day we went there were few visitors, so we walked up and down the stone staircases by ourselves, peering into the various lodge rooms. Finally a bus arrived with a small group of visitors and we decided to join them in a guided tour of the upper floors which feature an outdoor over-look, a library, and a museum on the life of George Washington.  There stood a large banner displaying  Double Headed Eagle Crowned, and I looked at it in wonder. This symbol represents the higher degrees, but especially the Supreme Council 33 degree, and a formal title is given: The Supreme Council (Mother Council of the World) of the Inspector General Knights Commander of the House of the Temple of Solomon of the Thirty-third degree of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry of the Southern Jurisdiction of the United States of America.

In the world of the occult, titles and names are paramount and they have a numerical equivalent which ties them into the world of fallen angels.  Genesis 6:2 (a half sentence) says, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. The uniting of fallen angels and women produced giants, the men of renown mentioned in mythology. While Freemasonry is masculine, there is a feminine element. The egregore of the Supreme Council 33 as a double headed eagle is referred to as the Mother Council of the world. Likewise, the book of Revelation highlights a Mother of harlots, Mystery Babylon, who fornicates with the kings of the earth. Now the body of this double headed eagle is one, and this reminds me of Matthew 19:6, which says, Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh.  What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

The two heads of this eagle are watching, and held in its talons is a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the tree of life.

Double Headed Eagle Crowned with motto Deus Meumque Jus: God and My Right


The motto is Deus Meumque Jus, meaning God and My Right.  The Double Headed Eagle Crowned reveals the Sephiroth of Justice joined with the Captain of the Watchers/Watchmen.  This marriage is a union of opposing principles creating the double mind of  unsaved mankind or of counterfeit Christianity. The Captain of the Watchers has a warrior mentality;  the personification of Guile waiting in Ambush, like the man of Psalm 10.  The New Testament declares that Christ cannot be yoked with Belial, nor can Righteousness be yoked with Unrighteousness.  The body of Christ joined with the Head of Jesus Christ represents marriage at its perfection: Love, purity, and holiness without which no man shall see God.


With him is strength and wisdom: the deceived and the deceiver are his. Job 12:16 This scripture is talking about the LORD; but the counterfeit god has these traits to a lesser degree.

This double minded eagle is portrayed in Obadiah 1:3-4, The pride of thine heart hath deceived thee,thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, whose habitation is high; that saith in his heart, Who shall bring me down to the ground?  Though thou exalt thyself as the eagle, and though thou set thy nest among the stars, thence will I bring thee down, saith the LORD.  Another scripture which is a second witness to this declaration of God is found in Jeremiah 49:16, Thy terribleness hath deceived thee, and the pride of thine heart, O thou that dwellest in the clefts of the rock, that holdest the height of the hill:  though thou shouldest make thy nest as high as the eagle, I will bring thee down from thence, saith the Lord.

In conclusion, Take heed to  yourselves, that your heart be not deceived, and ye turn aside, and serve other gods, and worship them. (Deuteronomy 11:16)……. So that you might say in truth, these words from Psalm 124:6-8: 

Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth.  Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers:  the snare is broken, and we are escaped.  Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.

Due to the revelation of the exact identification of the man who hid behind the mask of V,  I am  reviewing the 2015 records I kept on this rogue guerrilla economist.  One of the articles I wrote on this subject was entitled, To V or Not To V:  The Implausible Deniability of Steve Quayle which was posted on October 13, 2015.  The other article dated November 18, 2015, I called The Gold Rush.  I had been aware for some time of V’s real name because it had been revealed in internet comments back in 2015.  However, there are numerous persons with the same name in the state of New York, so at that time I was not able to pin down the address and true resume of the Viji Varghese who had posed as V-the Guerrilla Economist.

It was on March 12, 2012, that V sent the first of his 89 pages of emails to Steve Quayle. In my opinion, it is doubtful that Viji Varghese could have succeeded in his fraud on his own. The pulling off of the V fraud had at its foundation three factors.  The first factor is the promotion of the credibility of V’s bonafides by Steve Quayle, which he was able to accomplish because so many Christians trusted Quayle’s vetting of so-called Insiders.  The second factor is the Blogtalk radio platform of the Hagmann & Hagmann radio broadcast now known as The Hagmann Report, which purportedly receives a “B”  Alexa rating, reflecting a listener base of some 60-70 million persons in the United States and dozens of foreign countries.  The third factor is the mentoring by another probable fraud known as W the Intelligence Insider, who was exposed as being Wayne Willot, who has worked closely alongside V in his radio appearances. Doug Hagmann promoted W as a man we could all trust.

Here is what Doug Hagmann said on his January 28, 2014 show about his good friend W the Intelligence Insider: I am not going to-I’m not going to tell you his name.  He is, as far as I am concerned, he would be the real American James Bond.  If I could, if I could equate him with any type of figure it would be an American style James Bond.  Folks, you will have to trust me on this.  This is a guy, who I trustI trust explicitly.  I trust this man, and in fact I say that I would take a bullet for this guy.  And there you are, you know, maybe there’s a handful of people I could say that for, ah, about.  And I trust him.  Look, if he called me up and said, ‘Look there is an alien invasion on the White House lawn, I wouldn’t even have to turn on my TV.’  I’d believe him.  That’s the level of trust that I have got with this gentleman.  With that I will address him by his first initial “W”,- come on, Sir, welcome. To this W responds, Well, that was quite an introduction there, gosh.  And Doug Hagmann then says, Well, I tell you-you deserve it.

Now back on January 11, 2013, Doug and Joe Hagmann, along with Steve Quayle, introduced V to millions of listeners of the Hagmann & Hagmann radio show.  Steve says, Tonight is a special treat because we have got one of the most accurate financial insiders I have ever had the privilege to know a lot of people.  Doug has been listening to him by the way of his email and reading of his emails but listening to the news that V has so appropriately warned everybody ahead of time that just to fill you in on his bona fides without obviously causing too much of a shock, he is probably one of the most well known commodities traders in strategic metals.  He has worked for major PM (ie. precious metals?) firms also worked for the largest bank in the world, and if you know anything about the largest banks you don’t get to be the head of trading desks and all this stuff unless you know what you are doing.  His accuracy is prescient.  He’s timely and is important and he basically agreed to come on because he felt really it is time to warn the people because we are in the throws of a major cataclysmic financial group of events that are going to take place….

When I was writing a post on Jon Robberson and discussing the fact that at the beginning he was promoted by Doug Hagmann as the anonymous Hollywood Insider, I also made this comment on V-the Guerrilla Economist.  I had written, Now after V-the Guerrilla Economist was invented, and heavily promoted by Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann, there was a point when he was “disfavored” and left the inner circle of trust.  Because his bona fides cannot be substantiated, he remained anonymous and created his own website and radio show.

It was a topic of discussion in 2015 that at some point, both V and W were mysteriously  never featured again as guests on the Hagmann & Hagmann radio show.  When V went on to do his own radio broadcast, W the Intelligence Insider stayed at his side and has been his constant radio broadcast companion.  This separation of these two “Insiders” from their promoters caused rumors to suggest that there had been a falling out between them and  Hagmann and Quayle.  Despite V’s and W’s departure from the inner circle of Hagmann and Quayle, these two promoters of V never exposed the fraud of V-the Guerrilla Economist to their listeners.

In reading the articles written in the past month by Michael Erevna for his website, one of the interesting quotations of V to Michael Erevna was the mention of revenues of $6,000,000.  Whether this was an accumulation of income over a several year period, or that of one year, it is an incredible sum of monies. As an ex-banking auditor, I began to wonder under what business name such sums were reported to the IRS, or whether these monies were ever reported at all.

While many small businesses retain the sole proprietor model and file a schedule C to the IRS, as soon as revenues become appreciable, most persons then become concerned about potential liability and taxes, so they then take on a corporate or LLC form of business.  I could not find anything under the New York State business entity search for Rogue Money, and other “titles” which V has used such as V-Guerrilla Consulting. But I observed that on V’s podcast page, under Rogue Money Radio it says “by Rogue Media, LLC“.

Below is a screenshot of the registration of that LLC.  Note that the Rogue Media LLC dissolved on April 27, 2016, but is still noted this month on the podcast page.  Interestingly, this LLC had originally been filed on September 28, 2007, several years before V became famous on the Hagmann and Hagmann show.rogue-media-llc-3573926This nearly dead end search prompted me to ask Michael Erevna if he was aware of the name of a registered business entity which V was currently using.  Now anyone who has followed V over the years, is familiar with his drama queen persona as he declares his many warnings of the imminent financial demise of America. So to my surprise, (and thanks V for the humor!)  his current registered business name is called Remain Calm LLC.  The filing date was October 26, 2016 which was a few weeks before Michael Erevna posted his expose.  One has to wonder why this nervous wreck suddenly decided to try to change his image to that of a calm man.rogue-money-remain-calm-llc

I have noted in this post that those persons who endorsed the genuineness of the credentials of that New York based fraud Viji Varghese AKA V-the Guerrilla Economist was first of all Steve Quayle of, the owner of Renaissance Precious Metals of Bozeman, Montana. Secondly, his partner in this promotion of V as someone we should trust, based on his financial insider knowledge and analytical skills, was the radio host Doug Hagmann of the Hagmann and Hagmann show on Blog Talk Radio.  Hagmann can be linked here.

At the Hagmann Report website can be found information on the business entity which Doug Hagmann uses to report his radio broadcast donations for his research and investigative works.  See below screenshot taken 12/20/2016.hagman-report-donation-address-1220-2016Note that the business entity is Hagmann Investigative Services, Inc.,  which is a longstanding registered business entity used by Doug Hagmann as a private investigator and operative for the FBI and the New York police.   A screenshot of a Linked In page reveals that Hagmann was licensed not only in Pennsylvania, but also in New York.hagmann-investigative-services-linked-inA February 2013 bio done in connection with a YouTube Pete Santilli show also reveals that Doug Hagmann had worked as a private investigator in conjunction with the New York police.hagmann-new-york

In summary,  Hagmann Investigative Services is not only the business entity which represents the private investigative work of Doug Hagmann, but also is the business entity which the Hagmann Report references for donations and related income reportable to the IRS.  It was through this business entity that Doug Hagmann promoted the fraudulent front of Viji Varghese who lives and does business in New York.

So why am I  stressing the New York Connection?

On October 26, 2016, which oddly is the day which Viji Varghese registered his new business entity Remain Calm LLC in New York, Douglas Hagmann, under the false spelling of his legal name as Douglass Hagmann submitted a signed document to a Federal Court which declares in part,  My only connection to New York is that I have been served with this lawsuit. and 7. I hereby declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing statements made by me are true to the best of my knowledge.  Now in response to this declaration, the Plaintiff has given a 68 page detailed argument to the Judge regarding both Stephen Quayle and Douglas Hagmann’s submitting  of declarations signed October 26th, which falsely spelled their legal names and also denied any connections to New York.

I seldom listen to the Hagmann Report radio broadcast anymore unless a reader asks me to review some portion of audio which they found notable.  But in doing so, I have mentioned in prior posts that it appears that Doug Hagmann is purposely covering his tracks of the past few years.  For example he can be found to recently suggest that Rosebud, another Insider with a fake name, was a reliable forecaster of current events, although no proof is given.  Hagmann, in his self righteous rants on his radio broadcast,  also likes to plant false insinuations about all those persons who have tried to hold him accountable for his words and actions.

These Make-Over Artists seem to be very busy at present, and in the case of V-the Guerrilla Economist, he has been glossing up his Rogue Money website.  Gone is the image of a raging rogue guerrilla.  However he forgot to change his present byline, Truth is Currency.  Now that byline is very telling, for that is exactly how a financial fraud treats truth.  It would appear that now V is generously giving away his advice, as I cannot find his previously quoted subscription prices on his website.  But even the magician V cannot make the following screenshot disappear, when once upon a time Hagmann promoted V’s website, and advertised the subscription fees which V charged for his fake advice.rogue-money-subscription-priceAs I slowly prepare the documentation of the evidence I have accumulated on V-the Guerrilla Economist for a complaint of fraud letter which I shall soon submit to the Orange County, New York DA’s office, I  will also include the hype which V invented involving a mysterious 4 star general.  Many comments were made at that time by persons with a military background declaring that they have never seen anyone promoted on the fast track which this 4 star general made claims to.

So if it is illegal to falsify credentials, will V also be held accountable to the Army for promoting such a fraud? If V invented the 4 star general and also invented his words, that makes V not only a promoter of a fraud, but Viji Varghese would also be personally liable for creating yet another set of false credentials.

V is still promoting his Rogue Report forecast for 2017 as an ebook for $24.99. I wonder if his looking glass has foretold his own future.  In my next post, I am going to review some online information on wire fraud.  It is no wonder that so many “Christian” Alternative Media News promoters of V-the Guerrilla Economist are now denying what I call The New York Connection.



Douglas Hagmann on The Extreme Unction of Roger Braun: Chapter 20 of Stained By Blood: A Murder Investigation

If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater:  for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.  He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself:  he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.  I John 5:9-11

On March 7, 2016 Tactical Publications released Stained By Blood: A Murder Investigation by Douglas J. Hagmann,  a fictional work based on a true life investigation of the murder of a family member of the author. hagmann stained by blood cover book

After a reader of the Tracking The Leopard Meroz blog sent me a gift of the Kindle copy of this novel, I read the entire book and then posted a review on on April 23, 2016.  I titled this review as a summary comment, saying,  A talent for story telling, which would be better displayed by telling the truth rather than giving us the fictional spin. And as I was in a charitable mindset at that time, I gave this book 3 stars; however, I am not thereby recommending that you waste your money on this book. (If you click on the screen shot below, an enlarged version of my book review is shown.)

hagmann stained by blood book review (2)

There are currently 70 customer reviews on for the book Stained By Blood; 96% gave 4-5 stars, and 4% gave 1-3 stars, with an overall average of 4.8 out of a possible 5 stars.  With so many gold stars for an unremarkable work of writing, it is interesting that used paperback copies can already be purchased from Amazon, meaning that someone did not think this book was worth reading a second time, or worth passing it onto a friend.

The Amazon bio of the author begins, “Douglas J. Hagmann has been a licensed investigator in the private sector for the last 30 years.  As a private detective, Hagmann has worked well over 5,000 cases and is recognized as a surveillance specialist.  He has worked as an informational asset for various federal and state law enforcement agencies.  Doug Hagmann now hosts a popular radio and video talk show each weeknight…”.  The main character of this novel, Marc Stiles, is also an investigator who presumably represents Hagmann, and is portrayed as a somewhat cynical, gun-toting, rough around the edges man, who is in love with his new girlfriend.

The force of stability in this novel is Gina, who works alongside Marc Stiles.  She is central to the thesis of Chapter 20, The Extreme Unction of Roger Braun, as Gina represents the witnessing Christian, who is prepared to speak to anyone at a moment’s notice about Jesus.  Marc Stiles, as the hardened skeptic, is primarily interested in what Roger Braun knows about the murder of his uncle, and his membership in a secret organization which served as a cover for criminal acts of murder, and the sacrifice of children upon the altar of the devil.

Roger says, “Somehow, Marc, you managed to strike at the center of this group of powerful men.  You are making a lot of people nervous, and your life is about to become worthless if you don’t stop asking questions.  These people would rather kill you than look at you.”  Marc Stiles responds with scoffing, “Yeah, well just who are these “boogeymen” of which you speak”.  This sarcastic question prompts Roger Braun to reprove Marc, saying, “Sonny, you’ve got a lot to learn, and I’d lose that attitude of yours if I was you.  In fact, it could be the death of you.”

The primary reason for this conversation between Roger Braun, who lies dying in a hospital bed, and Marc Stiles and Gina, centers around the murder inquiry of Marc’s uncle. But Roger also expands this inquiry by providing a confession of his own personal criminal acts.  This includes the shooting of his girlfriend in the 1950’s, his imprisonment, sex with both men and women, several rapes including young boys and girls, and his assertion that he was able to escape the consequences of these crimes because he is a “member of a secret organization that involved very powerful and high-profile people in Lakewood and at higher levels of all organizations.”

According to Roger Braun,  Marc’s uncle had “discovered a child sex ring operating in Lakewood”. Marc protests this revelation but Gina interrupts saying, “Marc, be quiet for once and listen”, adding, “Marc, put down your pride for a minute and understand one thing.  What you don’t know can and most likely will kill you.  It does not matter whether you believe me or not.  Your belief, or lack of it, makes no difference, not to me, and certainly not to these people, not to anyone, except that it shows just how ignorant you truly are…”.   Gina is expressing one of Doug Hagmann’s favorite radio broadcast quotes, which makes the fictional character Gina interesting as she is the voice of conscience of Marc, reproving his prideful sarcastic speaking, and his inability to be quiet and listen to others. This role of Gina is often played in real life by Doug Hagmann’s son, Joe, who is always forced into that awkward role of having to temper his father’s cocky and out of control rants.

Roger tells Marc that his uncle had obtained photos of high level officials sodomizing young boys, and in one case a child sacrifice to the devil. Then Roger hands 3 photos from the insole of his left shoe to Marc, and as his breathing becomes more labored, he confesses to Gina, “I did a lot of bad things in my life.  I am truly sorry for everything I did, everyone I hurt, and killed.  I don’t want to go to hell.”  So Gina holds his hand and asks Roger, “Do you know Jesus?’  Roger replies, “I know the devil.  But Jesus?  I don’t know.  What does Jesus have to do with anything?”

At this point, the reader should reflect on the title of this chapter, The Extreme Unction of Roger Braun.  Extreme Unction is a Roman Catholic rite, which some refer to as the Last Rites, which are ministered by a priest when it is feared that a person is very close to death. Sometimes this rite is referred to as a sacrament of the anointing of the sick, because some do recover their health.  As a general overview, here is an article posted on which reviews this doctrine on What Are Last Rites.

Doug Hagmann has mentioned on more than one occasion, that years ago he had briefly had seminary training in connection with Roman Catholicism.  The title of this chapter would seem to confirm that his theology is still shaped by that training.  But the curious thing in Chapter 20 is that while the title is distinctly Roman Catholic, the narrative of Gina’s witness to Roger Braun, displays a Baptist’s compact approach to one-on-one witnessing with a total stranger.

So here we have in a fictional novel based on fact, one chapter which has been devoted to the question of the reality of death-bed conversions through faith in Jesus Christ. We need to ask if the theology presented in Chapter 20 is just another fiction based on fact.

When it comes to Christian conversion which is sealed by the Holy Spirit, there are two truthful witnesses which provide evidence which cannot be contradicted.  The first witness is of course the person who professes to believe in Jesus Christ.  The second testimony is that of God himself.  The standard I have chosen to use in reviewing the conversion of Roger Braun, has three components found in I John 5. These are  the witness of man, the witness of God, and the witness of prayer being heard by God.

The Witness of Man

At the start of this post, I quoted Roger Braun’s confession of his most overt sins and their criminal nature to Gina and Marc.  After this he turns to Gina as a sort of representative of the priesthood, and proclaims that he is sorry, and does not want to go to hell.  And then in answer to a question of whether or not he knows Jesus, he says he knows the devil and asks what Jesus has to do with anything. The first problem is that his remorse is expressed in exactly the same way that condemned criminals who are insincere express themselves to the families of the victims they have murdered and sodomized. Remorse never shows up with such persons until they are either caught or realize that they themselves face imminent death.

“Gina explained to Roger that the way to avoid hell is to profess Jesus as his Lord and Savior. She spent a few minutes explaining that Jesus died for our sins, and we could be forgiven if we profess our belief and submit ourselves to Him.  She had Roger say the sinner’s prayer with her, and left a small New Testament in his hand.”

The motive here that is emphasized by both Roger and by Gina involves avoiding hell, rather than facing the truth of the Godhead who created us, in the first place.  Words that are missing all involve the vast gap between the sinner and the holiness of God. There is a reason why wrath is poured out on the sinner, whose very nature is fallen, and whose deeds, and intents of heart all fall short of the glory of God.  This sin nature even is fully active in those who follow after righteousness through works, and have all the appearance of goodness.

The Apostle Paul plumbs the depth of this and then asks, “But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is the word of faith, which we preach:  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation…For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved..” (Romans 10:8-10,13)

We are not told what Gina actually said to Roger, but she uses the phrase “Jesus died for our sins” without elaborating on the entire work on the cross plus the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus which proved that this was a work of God accomplished.

Below are three examples of what is often called “The Sinner’s Prayer”.  If you are a Bible believer and reader you will notice immediately that there are distinct differences which are snares to the unwary person who is persuaded to read and depend on such model prayers, prior to examining the gospel through the Scriptures.  The first example is the model seen frequently in Baptist circles, the second is a Catholic-type of Sinner’s Prayer, and the third represents an irreverent prayer which might possibly get one into a deeper hell.

sinners prayer baptistsinners prayer catholicsinners prayer card

Has the gospel of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ been proclaimed in the second and third examples of these “Sinner’s Prayer”? Is someone here ashamed of the gospel?  Paul said in Romans 1:17-18, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:  for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:  as it is written, The just shall live by faith.  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;”.

While some hold up the image of Jesus Christ on the cross as dying for sinners; there were actually three men crucified on that day and in that place. Only one is able to save and deliver men from their sin.    Luke 23:32-33 says, “And there were also two other, malefactors, led with him to be put to death. And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.  Further in verse 39, “And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. But the other one answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?  And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done nothing amiss.”

Now recall that the murderer and rapist and fornicator Roger Braun who reproves Marc Stiles for his cocky attitude, confesses in one brief sentence that he is sorry and does not want to go to hell.  The phrasing of this remorse is one which generally would be regarded by the crime victims and their families as to be highly insulting and unconvincing.  The additional shedding of tears by the offender could very well be self serving, rather than an act of humility.  Shortly after Gina’s Christian witness to Roger Braun, he died. Marc and Gina then walk back to the elevators in silence, until Marc asks, “What you did back there, Gina.  The talk of Jesus.  Do your(sp) really think there’s a chance for a guy like that?”

John 3:19-21 states a very deep truth about the heart of mankind, saying, “And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.”

I John 5:10 says, “He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself:  he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son”.  Thus when a person has genuine faith in Jesus Christ, he knows, -for the witness of God is in himself.  Luke 11:33-36 provides this insight:  “No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light.  The light of the body is the eye:  therefore when thine eye is single; thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, they body also is full of darkness.  If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light.”

There is a witness in the true believer of Jesus Christ which can be observed, especially through the eyes, as well as words and deeds.

The Witness of God

There is a witness of God in the genuine believer of God, which reveals itself when  the Christian is persecuted and “brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake”.  Jesus said, “it will turn to you for a testimony”. (Luke 21:12-13).  Jesus Christ promised in verse 15, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist”. This type of witness from the indwelling Holy Spirit of the believer also shows in many daily conversations, as well.

While Satan and his ministers can for a time manifest as angels of light, the witness of God within the believer fills him with light and also grants the ability to speak with a great wisdom as may be required to confound the adversary of God. Even when viewing a so-called death-bed conversion, the witness inside a man, whether it be light or darkness ought to be evident.  Can a man on his deathbed who has lived a long life of criminal acts which included murder and sodomizing children, who kept his deeds hidden for years, never once showing mercy and compassion for his victims, suddenly come to saving faith when he realizes that his end is imminent?  It is doubtful, although not impossible. Douglas Hagmann leaves us in doubt about the death-bed conversion of Roger Braun, as he fails to document the witness of God which would have revealed itself in the words and eyes of this dying man.

Prayer which is heard by God

The thief on the cross spoke of the fear of God, being in condemnation and receiving the due reward of his deeds, and as recorded in Luke 23:42-43, finally beseeching the Son of God, saying,  “… Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom.  And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.” By this hearing of the prayer of the thief, Jesus has confirmed that his words were in the will of God, and that indeed, the thief would enter into paradise rather than hell.

We have no idea in the narration of The Extreme Unction of Roger Braun, what form of the so-called Sinner’s Prayer the dying man said, but it is interesting that the thief on the cross displayed all the elements of a real “death-bed” conversion, even praying face to face with Jesus, who as our Lord and Savior,  was about to take upon himself God’s wrath poured out upon all of the sins of humanity in judgment.  Truly the prayer of the thief displays the promise in  I John 5:14-15, “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:  And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him”. But can we presume that Roger Braun’s reading of some unknown version of a Sinner’s Prayer was heard on high?

In this one theological chapter of Stained By Blood:  A Murder Investigation, the author Doug Hagmann sets up the main character Marc,  which represents himself, to be reproved by both Gina, and the evil man on his death-bed, Roger Braun. And what do they consider his major flaws? He has an attitude, a cockiness which could be the death of him, not knowing when to quit talking and to be quiet, a failure to see the big picture.

I would like to add another observation which Doug Hagmann might want to ponder quietly before launching into an angry tirade against bloggers who quote his words. The concept of including a chapter which discussed the matter of saving faith in Jesus Christ is an interesting one.  But the waters are muddied by identifying this death-bed scenario with the Roman Catholic traditions of the fathers, which overturn the words of God.  The patterning of Gina to appear as a Baptist model of one-on-one witness is the antithesis to the first portrait of her as a confessional priest ministering to a dying man.  The Synthesis is Confusion as to what the gospel of Jesus Christ, the power of God unto salvation to those that believe, really is.  There is Confusion in the details as to what might have really been spoken in this fictional scenario.  There is Confusion when  the truth of the Scriptures is placed within the framework of  fiction, and  falsehood.  No matter how much one asserts that this fiction is  based on fact, the bottom line is that even the facts become highly distorted.  What the reader gets when they open this book is nothing more than another example of a  Male Romance novel.

I stated two primary things in my book review of this work.  First,  the author has a talent for story telling, which would be better displayed by telling the truth than giving us the fictional spin.  Second, Douglas Hagmann does have a personal real life story himself which is interesting in and of itself, but one which he has been afraid to closely examine.

Actual death-bed conversions are rare, although not an impossibility. While there still remains time, it is of utmost importance not to presume that one can have genuine heart repentance in the final minutes of life.  Those who think they are presenting the gospel should ensure that they are presenting the truth of the Scriptures to their readers,  and should never give out a false hope to those who have repeatedly rejected the influence of the Holy Spirit upon their heart and mind and conscience.

Hell is real and not a fiction.



Douglas Hagmann and Judi McLeod of Canada Free Press: Still Sledding Downhill on Rosebud

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.
Isaiah 41:23-24

A couple of days ago I was perusing the most recent shows done by the Hagmann Report, and noted that the July 13, 2016 broadcast, had been entitled DHS Insider Information Revisited On the Hagmann Report.  I listened to the first hour in which Doug brought up the name of Rosebud, the DHS Insider; a name which both he and Canada Free Press had heavily pushed to the forefront four years ago, during an election year. One scenario which had been promoted back then, was that Obama would institute martial law under a crisis,  thereby setting aside  American Presidential elections.

Rosebud, Yellow Journalism’s Insider Joke

Doug Hagmann in this most recent broadcast suggested that if the audience knew how the nickname Rosebud came about, we would all laugh.  Of course he does not give us this elementary back story, as we are not to be insiders to this little joke.  And so we fall back on our human capacity for word association, and most likely  we will be accused of having a wild imagination, should we dare to venture the wrong answer, but most especially, if we select the right interpretation of this image.rosebud (2)

So here we are in 2016, another election year with Obama serving his last term, awaiting the illusive choice of monied interests as to whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be the next  President of the United States of America.

So here is a real curiosity I discovered. On November 24, 2015 INFOWARS posted a 3.27 minute video of none other than Donald Trump in a piece called, Trump on Citizen Kane:  The Significance of Rosebud.   If you are down in the dumps about the upcoming election, view this video, and enter into the real twilight zone of the American ruling class, and experience relief that they do not sit as God on the  throne of mercy.

When I was in high school around 1967, my English class studied the making of classic movies, which included Citizen Kane, where the word Rosebud entered into the stream of consciousness of the American public. The main character is  based somewhat loosely on the Hearst newspaper empire, which was the father of yellow journalism and 24/7 news and entertainment reporting. The last word of the dying Kane in this movie was Rosebud, which was his childhood sled. This image represented the innocent happiness he once had known, which had been replaced by his ever increasing desire for fortune and power, a strong citadel which he constructed only to exclude that real happiness which can never be purchased for money. An interesting review of this movie can be found at the in an April 25, 2015 piece by Peter Bradshaw titled, Citizen Kane and the meaning of Rosebud.

In a February 6, 2013 YouTube video we find a short mention of Rosebud, the DHS Insider given by Joel Skousen in an interview with Jeff Rense on December 26, 2012.    This is noted as “Joel gives his opinion of the DHS Insider “Rosebud” that feeds information to “alternative news” journalist Doug Hagmann”. Skousen’s opinion, by the way, is that Hagmann has presented the public with a fake insider. The comment section of this video displays the usual finger pointing accusations that Joel Skousen is the one who is a disinformation shill, whereas others in the Alternative Media are the real deal, and vice versa. This is Yellow Journalism at its best, shaping history and public opinion by dialectical reasoning.  Some of us still long for genuine leadership which relies on genuine evidence and those principles which are foundational to truth.

As Citizen Kane was based on the story of William Hearst, the father of Yellow Journalism, it is interesting to note that the keynote historical war which Hearst turned public opinion on, was also manipulated by another man, Joseph Pulitzer.  Together they became master builders of WAR, as children who construct with wooden blocks, – at that time, printer’s letter blocks.  Hearst and Pulitzer are both discussed in this article on the Spanish American War Centennial’s page on the life of William Randolph Hearst.

The Complicity of Judi McLeod, Editor of Canada Free Press in promoting the DHS Insider

So here is what is interesting in the most recent promotion of Rosebud, the DHS Insider by Doug Hagmann.  In the July 13th, Hagmann Report video linked to above, Hagmann quotes from, and promotes the reading of an article dated July 13, 2016 written by Judi McLeod the editor of Canada Free Press called Obama will only impose martial law if it looks like Trump will win. Rosebud, Trump, Election Year, Martial Law?  One seldom considers the Canadian influence upon the American Alternative Media propagandists, but the partnership of Judi McLeod with Doug Hagmann in “discovering” and promoting the DHS Insider Rosebud, not to mention W The Intelligence Insider, should not be overlooked.

I recommend going to the Canada Free Press website, and entering Rosebud into their search box. This will bring up various past articles written primarily by Doug Hagmann publishing his DHS Insider’s opinions and warnings, most of which history proved were wrong. On December 28, 2013, the EU Times sought to reassure us that finally we were freed from Rosebud‘s hidden knowledge once and for all, when they reposted a Doug Hagmann article under the banner, DHS Insider gives final warning.

In addition to writing articles for Canada Free Press, as a Senior contributing writer, Douglas Hagmann used to make use of his old website which had the identical name, department of homeland security, as that of the DHS government agency.  But in fact, Hagmann had created his website before the creation of the government agency, in case you are wondering which came first, the chicken or the egg in this particular situation. Hagmann was also known under the North East Intelligence Network banner as well.    At, there still remains an article written on September 11, 2006, called BUSTED: Doug Hagmann and Northeast Intelligence NetworkAnd of course forums which repost insider disinfo are always interesting if you want to document the trail of Doug Hagmann.  For example, in February 2013, ten months before the supposed finality of Rosebud’s revelations,  the forum published a thread called, DHS Insider Rosebud:  Back With Shocking New Revelations.

Alex Jones, King of the Snowy Mountain of Yellow Journalism

But why not give Alex Jones’ INFOWARS forum the last word?  After all, he did post that interesting video on Trump discussing Rosebud. And on June 20, 2013, the topic in his forum was Hagmann’s DHS Insider:  MARTIAL LAW IN TWO WEEKS (Updated). Do any of you remember when that happened? 

Rosebud and his promoters have reappeared once again this month, in regard to Trump, the upcoming election, race wars, and martial law.  It is always prudent to be prepared for any critical event, but after having the pantry stocked full and the guns loaded, why not sit back in your wicker rocking chair on the front porch, and just enjoy the warm summer evening.

Prophetic failures are a dime a dozen in the Alternative Media, so do not be surprised in this twilight zone if you see Doug Hagmann and Judi McLeod sledding downhill on Rosebud, whizzing through yet another story line, kicking up snow and blurring the lines between sanity and insanity once again. But take notice that the backdrop behind all these predictions  is the standing challenge of Isaiah 41:23-24, quoted in the heading of this post; a challenge made by the LORD God to those gods of predictive programming.
