“Operation Classified” participant related “Go Fund Me” TestiMONIES To Make You Cry

I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.  Psalm 37:25

OPERATION CLASSIFIED was a Dallas conference put on by John B. Wells two weeks ago on November 9-11, 2018.  The crowning event was a post conference Ball with a $350 ticket price, as proceeds were slated to be given to General Michael Flynn’s legal defense fund. The cost of renting an exhibition booth for this conference started at $695, and for only $10,000, one could reserve the gold dinner table at the Ball.  As I was reading these pricey details in the event brochure, a name from the past popped up, which some of my readers will recognize:  Jeannie Moore.

Operation Classified Exhibition Coordinator Jeannie Moore also runs the Hear The Watchmen conferences and was involved at one time in a GoFundMe account in the name of her husband’s anonymous handle, Mike Whitestone. Legally known as Mike Kerr, he once created a furor in Orange County, CA over his mishandling of a charitable cause.

As the contact person for the Operation Classified exhibition booths, Jeannie @Jeannie Moore777, still retains her 949-702-7191 phone number from the South Orange County/Camp Pendleton,  California area, despite having moved to Idaho. On March 24, 2016,  I wrote an article called Mike Whitestone and his GoFundMe Accountability to Man and God. At that time Mike and Jeannie were organizing the first Hear The Watchmen conference, which resulted in a highly publicized Christian Alternative  Media controversy, when Nathan Leal departed their company after he protested another  conference speaker’s false doctrine. This in turn caused an investigation into  Mike Whitestone’s past reputation in Orange County under his legal surname, Kerr.

Around that time, I had also written about John B. Wells and his involvement with that first conference put on by Mike Whitestone and Jeannie Moore. In a February 20, 2016 article called, The King of Jousters, John B. Wells and his ARK Knight-errant, Sir Douglas  Hagmann Give A Private Exhibition of  their Prowess, I transcribed an internet radio conversation between Wells and Hagmann where they attempted to do damage control on Mike Kerr/Whitestone’s reputation.

But enough of memory lane, that Whitestone GoFundMe account brought back some interesting past and present connections between the various Alternative Media stars.  Back to Operation Classified!  John B. Wells advertised his event in a Classified Subject Matter promotional stating,  “This is a classified operation, which involves deep state disclosure, ground breaking research and breaking intel.  Absolutely no bravo sierra will be permitted”. (Hahahahaha! laughter heard from the Tracking the Meroz blogsite).

“Nothing is off limits at Operation Classified. It will rock your world on all levels and you will leave ‘locked, cocked and ready to rock’.  We are all ‘operatives’ in this mind boggling, intense operation to expose evil and corruption!…we shall stare into the face of evil!  We will look into the minds and motives of those who seek to destroy America and everything and everyone we hold dear to us.  Our enemies are at the gate and they are both foreign and domestic.  We shall speak and explore the truth, we will wade through the lies and deception!”

The general admission ticket was $160 for early registration, going up to $190 and then $300!!! if you waited to register until after the secret classified guest name was revealed.  The VIP ticket started at $490, going up to $690.

Operation Classified Attendee: L. A. Marzulli of an Undisclosed Location

One of those ticket holders attending the Dallas Operation Classified conference was L. A. Marzulli, who learned from Los Angeles officials while he was there, that his Undisclosed Location had burnt down in the Woolsey fires. On November 11, 2018 Marzulli created a GoFundMe page for $150,000. As we go to press, he has received over $129,000.

He upped his GoFundMe to include $50,000 in uninsured inventory.  I suppose the other $100,000 is to keep him in style, while his expansive “undisclosed location” is rebuilt with insurance proceeds, giving him a brand new home.

L. A. Marzulli’s fire-destroyed property included a house, a 1,000 square foot guest house, studio, garden, and belongings, (except those that he had placed in the fireproof root cellar).  He began his alms for the poor GoFundMe testiMONEY by saying, “It’s me, L. A. Marzulli, and I’m no longer able to come to you from our undisclosed location, deep in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains”.

Lest you think that I have no compassion for Marzulli’s situation, I lost everything I owned including irreplaceable baby photos in 1983, in an arson fire.  So I have understanding of the shock of realizing that familiar and comforting material belongings are gone for ever. I started over with nothing, as many do in those situations. Coming from parents who went through the Depression and then World War II, it was unheard of in my world to publicly beg strangers for thousands of dollars just because there was an extreme set back in life.

One possible reason why L. A. Marzulli might be living his life out in a seemingly nice undisclosed location is because of a past fraud he committed against some of his donors.  On February 28, 2016 I wrote an article called Intercessory Nightmares, which began with a story about L. A.Marzulli, who had been examined by the Herescope blog in an article by Gaylene Goodroad, of the Discernment Research Group.

Goodroad had related that “An unsettling illustration of these un-biblical prayer warfare strategies unfolded during the months prior to the hysterical countdown to the failed 2012 Mayan Doomsdsay prophecies, which Herescope documented in detail, including in the article “12-21-12:  Evangelical Christians Believing Mayan Prophecies.”   L. A. Marzulli, cited earlier as a PPP adherent with Latter Rain roots, posted a 5-minute video on his blog in August 2012, appealing for funds ($12,000) from his flock, so that he could travel with his entourage to the Mayan Pyramids in Chichen-Itza, Mexico on December 21, 2012 (the Winter Solstice) – in order to do battle with the pagan god Quetzalcoatl who was expected to manifest on that date – “sort of like Elijah against the prophets of Baal.” ”

“Calling Chichen-Itza a “power place,” “ground zero,” and “the belly of the beast” with regard to its “open portals” of demonic activity, Marzulli enlisted the company of Russ Dizdar (author of The Black Awakening:  Rise of The Satanic Super Soldier), Richard Grund (Director/Team Leader the Supernatural Response Team (SRT),  Larry Barrett, and Watchers videographer, Richard Shaw, to document the event.  The team, said Marzulli, was needed to “assist in the spiritual warfare we expect to happen there…” Marzulli went on to explain his intended warfare:”

This is an amazing opportunity to represent the kingdom of God – to stand in the way of or possibly to confront what may manifest there on December 21st- the so-called return of the Mayan god, Quetzalcoatl…We feel that something is going to happen there.  Hopefully, nothing will happen there.  If it does, we’re going to engage in warfare and shut this thing down. (bold added).”

“Although he initially assured potential Chichen-Itza donors that God was leading the effort to send out this spiritual warfare team, just days before he was set to fly into “the belly of the beast,”  Marzulli abruptly aborted the mission.  In a December 14 notice on his website, entitled “A Redirect from the Captain of the Hosts,” Marzulli reported that his daughter had been given a disturbing “prophetic dream” that revealed his kidnapping and murder by Mexican cartels.  “She awoke from her dream and was greatly disturbed.  She prayed and went back to sleep.  Then another dream occurred.  In it she saw a burst of light followed by a voice that instructed, Don’t go!‘ ”

Gaylene Goodroad ends this account of Marzulli’s adventure, saying, “Marzulli and his PPP spiritual warfare team never made it to the Mayan Pyramids.  The $14,000 raised by his flock was lost to Power Places Tours, not to mention the loss of biblical discernment for all those involved with this ungodly endeavor.

Operation Classified Producer and Program Director for Caravan to Midnight:  Jon Robberson aka The Hollywood Insider

So here is another GoFundMe Christian who asked for $7,200, but received more than that from 35 very generous benefactors. It seems he was changing jobs, and could not come up with the costs of moving to Dallas from that far away land of Erie, Pennsylvania.  Robberson had been making $3,250/month salary working for the Hagmann Report, yet he felt the need to beg for alms despite having a nice income. He has not mentioned having a family to support, thus I am under the impression that he is a bachelor. Now he works for the John B. Wells show, as Producer and Program Director.

Jon Robberson requested moving funds so he could move from Erie, PA where he had been producer of the Hagmann Report to work for John B. Wells who recently hosted the Operation Classified conference in Dallas.

I first heard of Jon Robberson on the Hagmann show, but initially he used the alias The Hollywood Insider and his interview was conducted at an undisclosed location as he was hiding out  in a food storage warehouse. I wrote about him on February 24, 2016 in an article titled, Enter Stage Left:  The Hollywood Insider Who Covertly Spied On Others At Work, stating, “On June 25, 2015, a month prior to the John B. Wells show,  Jon Robberson was interviewed for the first time by the Hagmann and Hagmann radio show in a broadcast called   Jon- Hollywood Insider, Hollywood Is A Satanic Death Cult. ” (In case you are wondering about the Hollywood connections, he was just a cameraman.)

“Douglas Hagmann, introduces Jon, who is speaking under first-name-only anonymity, saying, “our guest tonight without exaggeration, is under a certain amount of pressure, under threat not to talk about what he is going to talk about.  He has been under threat, he has been under serious attack and, and people might scoff at that, and say awwh, come on, ……this gentleman had to covertly, and surreptitiously, snuck around the backrooms, the back alleys, the back of the sets, looked, watched, kept notes, kept tabs on people, places, events.  He knows where the bodies are buried, he knows what goes on in Hollywood.  He knows about the rituals, the ritualistic type of abuse.  He knows the demonic nature of Hollywood, the Satanic nature….”

Red Pilled?

So in August 2018, Jon Robberson needed funds to move, and he explains in his GoFundMe testiMONEY, “I have been Red Pilled since 2008 and gave my life to Christ when I was a 7 year old little boy. I renewed that commitment in 2013.”

“In 2015 I was fired by Universal Studios and blacklisted from a 16 year career in Hollywood TV and Feature Film Production. My IMDb was scrubbed and I lost my pension.”

Vegabonding?

“After 2 years vegabonding up and down the West Coast doing guest appearances on The Hagmann Report, Caravan to Midnight, The Josh Tolley Show, The Kate Dalley Show and dozens of others, I became the Producer of the Hagmann Report in the late summer of 2016. The Lord blessed us with over 500 phenomenal shows featuring guests from:  Diamond and Silk, to Kaya Jones. John B Wells to Liz Crokin. Dr Jerome Corsi to Activist Mommy. We debuted over 300 guests during my tenure as Producer of the show.”

“18 days ago I was hired to be an integral part of the team that is being drawn from all over the world to relaunch Caravan to Midnight. The team will operate out of Dallas, Texas and the talent is convening in Dallas from as “near” as Michigan to as far away as South Africa and India. I will serve Caravan to Midnight as the Producer and Program Director.”

“However this all happened so quickly that my personal finances where in disarray. Over the past 14 weeks I’ve incurred $11,000 in emergency dental bills as well as a 14 and a half year old cat (who I found on a film set in 2004 as a kitten; his name is Lenny) and he has required three trips to the vet totalling over $1000. Lastly, I was still recovering from my move to Erie (where the Hagmann Studios are located) that occurred in 2017.”

Paying His Dues?

“Between 2014-2016 I worked in the New Media as a guest and public speaker for the love of my country and the love of my God. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But I didn’t make a dime. I was , in effect, paying my dues.”

“2016-present I worked for approximately $39k per year and was incredibly grateful to have such a unique job that paid enough to get by in an economy like Erie, PA.”

“We made great content and by simply telling the truth about the state of our country and its place in the world, we led men and women to realize that there is only one way to truly #MAGA (Make America Great Again) and that is by the sum total of each man and woman’s heart being filled with the Bible, The Constitution and Christ.”

“I fight the Information War with the likes of The Oathkeepers, Vets4ChildRescue, Infowars, Worldview Weekend TV, The Weekend Vigilante and of course my new bosses: John B Wells and his amazing wife, Brendi Wells.”

“This is a fight for the souls of humanity and the survival of our Republic.”

Chosen by God to be a Frontline Fighter Against Evil?

“For reasons that I still struggle to understand, God chose me as a frontline fighter in the war against evil as we navigate the End of the Age.”

“My testimony can be found by simply typing in “Jon Robberson” into YouTube and popping in your earbuds. There are hundreds of hours of broadcasts from dozens of platforms. My story is very unique, filled with triumph and moments of great tragedy. But I am honored beyond anything words can describe to serve the America that I grew up in. The America of church on Sundays, mowing lawns for $3-$5, The America of traveling without government goons looking at us naked to get on a plane. The America that vanquished Soviet Communism and National Socialism (Nazis.)”

“My Brother, Jared, was a United States Marine. He passed April 17, 2007. My Uncle Silas served in the 7th Air Cav in Vietnam. Grandpa Robberson went to Europe in WW2 and served as a medic while Grandpa Weaver fought the Japanese on Guadalcanal. My Great Grandpa Moore served in the US Army in WW1. We have relatives who rode with Moseby in the War Between the States. I come from a family of Christian warriors who have fought for five generations with a Bible in one hand and (as needed) a weapon in the other.”

Anybody ever hear of Caspar McCloud?  I am out of the loop.

“Currently I divide my days between cohosting “Spiritual Encounters With Caspar McCloud” and packing boxes, sorting possessions to be donated and preparing to hit the road to Dallas. I, too, am a Christian Warrior but God called me to help save His children. There are other members of The Body who will draw blood in defense of the defenseless.”

Nooo!  Not Crowdsourcing…

“In conclusion, I wish I was not in the position to seek crowd sourcing to make this move and job transition happen but I am on a super demanding and incredibly tight  schedule to get to Dallas.”

“I had no idea that this opportunity was coming so I failed to (at least try) to prepare financially.”

“My favorite scripture in the Bible is Hebrews 11:1. It beautifully encapsulates the Christians’ mission: ”Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.””

“I pray that the Lord speaks to your heart and releases your mind to help me complete this transition. It is truly Kingdom Work as my creative energy will be deployed to bring a tighter message of salvation to Caravan to Midnight, an already phenomenal, superlative show.”

“Lastly, I am a prolific writer. My articles can be found at: www.hagmannreport.com”

“Simply type “Jon Robberson” in the search bar, upper right corner of the home page.”

“Every $5 is a gallon of gas between Erie and Dallas. Every $100 is a hotel room along the way.”

“The truck rental is $2900 and I am driving it myself to save money (with 2 cats who meow every 30 seconds in the car, ugh.)”

“Anything is greatly appreciated. If you search my history with GoFundMe, you will see that I have diligently supported those in temporary need for years and to the tune of many thousands of dollars.”

“As the Lord has blessed me, I’ve helped get homeless cops off the street, rebuild homes that burned to the ground and get a young man repatriated to his home in Florida (from Peru) in order to become a US Marine. That young man’s name is Nicholas McIntosh and he graduated boot camp last month. Praise God!”

“There is a Main Stream (dying) media lie that permeates a subset of our culture. They mislead the public to believe that those of us in New Media are getting rich. That couldn’t be further from the truth. In my industry, if you’re not in it for love of God, country and your fellow man, you won’t last six months.”

“Thank you for taking the time to read a tiny portion of my story. I have deep respect for how hard you work for your resources. Thank you for considering helping me get to Dallas so that I can continue playing a significant role in supporting the Trump Train, liberty and the Remmant Christians in America and around the world.  God bless you. Remember, fear and faith CANNOT coexist.”

So far, so good. My sincerest and heartfelt thanks to each of you who have chosen to invest your hard earned resources with me as I venture to Dallas to begin working with Caravan to Midnight. I just got off the phone with John B Wells and to say that there is a sizzle running through the “wiring” of everyone joining this new team would be an understatement. Thanks to your generosity I finally got my eye exam completed and pick up my glasses at 5:30pm this evening. I also splurged $20 on the purchase of a beautiful new NKJV Bible for my upstairs neighbor, Christina. I am currently doing 3-5 hours of broadcasting daily right now, trying to minister, spiritually nourish and just keep those of the Christian Remnant who are lonely company. Today I join “Spiritual Encounters With Caspar McCloud” or guest is Tahni Cullen, Author of Josiah’s Fire. Later this evening I will be interviewed by Hear the Watchmen for their YouTube channel. Tomorrow I kick off at 10:00am with Prophecy Brothers followed at 1:00pm with On the Objective (our guest is Bill Chapman) and then 3:30 tomorrow is Spiritual Encounters With Caspar McCloud and our guest is “Dr B” a whistle blower pathologist who decries abortion. I will periscope tonight at 9:30pm EDT the topic: loneliness is Satan’s favorite dessert.”
You earned the donations?

Where Have All The Drama Queens Gone? The March Dallas Hear The Watchmen Conference Is A Hard Act to Follow For the Knoxville Event Organizers

Mike Whitestone AKA Mike Kerr's Challenge to stay out of jail

Mike Whitestone AKA Mike Kerr once again tempting Fate

Mike Whitestone AKA Mike Kerr

It would appear that many are contemplating the upcoming September 30-October 2, 2016  Hear The Watchmen Conference in Knoxville, Tennessee, as I see an upsurge in the readership of this blog’s dozen or so articles on the first conference, which took place in Dallas last March 18-20, 2016.

That first Hear The Watchmen Conference had featured 9 key speakers, Paul McGuire, L. A. Marzulli, Pastor David Lankford, Michael Boldea, Russ Dizdar, Jon Robberson, Gregg Jackson, Coach Dave Daubenmire and Pastor Flip Benham.  In addition, the emcees for the Dallas event were Doug and Joe Hagmann, John B. Wells and Sheila Zilinsky.  The names highlighted in bold print are those who are not on the roster for the Knoxville conference.

As they stood by the sullied reputation of event organizers Mike Kerr AKA Mike Whitestone and his wife Jeannie Moore/Kerr, the missing participants from the Knoxville conference displayed a loyalty unmatched in the Shakespearean-style dramas of the Merchants of Christian Alternative Media.  Also missing from the new roster of speakers is Steve Quayle, who for a short time was shown in the photo lineup of the Knoxville conference.

As befitting the short history of the Hear The Watchmen Conference,  the scripture chosen to highlight the Knoxville event is “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few”.  (Matthew 9:37).  Below is the roster of speakers of the September Hear The Watchmen Conference:

The Laborers in the Knoxville field

The Laborers in the Knoxville field

Last spring the first conference generated much interest due to the controversy which arose when Nathan Leal reproved the New Age heresies of Dr. Ted Broer.   As a result of listening on December 18, 2015, to that particular Hagmann/Broer interview, Nathan Leal made an attempt to deal with the heresy issues with the organizers of the Hear The Watchman Conference, as both men were scheduled to speak on the same platform. When that discussion failed,  Leal issued a letter of resignation from the conference on December 23, 2015, as a matter of conscience.

Subsequently, Dave Hodges on his Commonsense show defended Dr. Ted Broer’s version of events.  In the meantime Donna Leal had mentioned in late December that they had been threatened with a lawsuit regarding “fair use”.  I am guessing this had something to do with the audio created by Nathan Leal explaining precisely why he had disagreed so strongly with Broer’s theology.  Leal had wisely used sound bites from the radio broadcast so that the listener could hear what had been stated. By January 8, 2016, this audio had been removed from Nathan Leal’s website.

John Little of Omega Shock  defended Nathan Leal, and provided key information on the behind the scenes attacks against Leal which had resulted when he publically stated his reasons for separating from the Hear The Watchman Conference. On January 4, 2016 in response to this incident, I posted Kudos to Nathan Leal of the Watchman’s Cry for Standing Up (For a Few Days Anyway) to Dr. Ted Broer, Hagmann and Hagmann and Dave Hodges.  I was quite surprised by the high numbers of readers interested in this particular incident.  And so on January 11, 2016,  I wrote another article involving Steve Quayle and Pastor David Lankford, who were pressured to publically comment on the underlying causes of this controversy.

On January 28, 2016 I posted Cloven Tongues of Strange Fire:  The Continuing Controversy of the Hear The Watchmen Conference, and two days later on January 30th again posted another article called, The Sins of Christian Marketplace Conflicts of Interest:  or when Doug and Joe Hagmann, Did You Intend to  Release The Results of Your Background Investigation of the Founders of the Hear The Watchmen Conference?

Eight more articles ensued discussing  the shady fund-raising history of the fictitious name Mike Whitestone AKA Mike Kerr and his wife Jeannie Moore/Kerr and their GOFUNDME account, as well as Doug Hagmann and John B. Wells’ attempt to defend the duplicity of Mike Whitestone.  Other articles can be found on this blog on the speakers and persons connected with the first conference including Jon Robberson (The Hollywood Insider), Paul McGuire, Flip Benham, Sheila Zilinsky, Pastor David Lankford, Steve Quayle, Dave Hodges, and  Dave Daubenmire, who dresses in a baseball oufit, who I noted was a key defender of tax fraud Dr. Dino.

When the Dallas conference was concluded, a roster of possible participants for the Knoxville conference was shown, including a photo of Steve Quayle. Since he will not be present, I note that one of the speakers added to the current line-up is another drama queen,  Anthony Patch.  On  February 15, 2016, I wrote about his strange antics in a post called The Real Reason The Men in Black Tried to Silence Anthony Patch.

Without Douglas Hagmann, Sheila Zilinsky, and Steve Quayle to bolster the second Hear the Watchmen Conference, it would appear that this upcoming event in Knoxville, Tennessee, will be just one more dreary  conference. Perhaps Russ Dizdar might prove to be interesting, particularly as one attendee in the Spring conference who refused to clap at his speech, was ousted as a possible terrorist suspect.  I may yet examine all of Dizdar’s material in-depth, having only perused through some of his audios.  Of note is that this month someone used my email contact information, without my permission, to subscribe me to Russ Dizdar’s newsletter, notices, book discounts, and upcoming event notices.

A short summary of key events given below will remind my regular readers that the brouhaha associated with the Nathan Leal/Dr. Ted Broer controversy represented a real crisis in the inner circle of Doug Hagmann and Steve Quayle.  Nathan Leal had for some time been a featured repeat guest on the Hagmann show, but his brief stand against the heresy of another Hagmann guest represented a breach of the code of loyalty of the brotherhood of this Alternative Media universe. Into the breach jumped Dave Hodges to defend Broer. And then on January 7, 2016,  Steve Quayle and Pastor David Lankford publically commented on this situation, due to the pressure from their inquiring listener base.

John Little then defends Leal, and brings to light the unsavory actions of the conference organizer Mike Whitestone, who is trying to distance himself from critical newspaper articles written exposing his fundraising tactics under his real name Mike Kerr.  His wife’s toffee business is a sponsor of the Hagmann broadcast.  On February 20, 2016 I wrote an article called The King of Jousters, John B. Wells and his ARK Knight-errant, Sir Douglas Hagmann give a Private Exhibition of Their Prowess.  In this article as well as others, I transcribe the audio of the men defending the shady actions of their friends who partner and promote each other in the Alternative Media. On March 2, 2016 Douglas Hagmann ranted on air against bloggers who transcribe his every word.

Note the New Sensitivity to the complaints against the Event Organizers who are known for their gross commercialism of the needs of Veterans and Christians. In addition to promoting this conference, Singing Lessons are encouraged by emcee John B. Wells

Last year I asked Mike Whitestone for an accounting of his GoFundMe account and was ignored. This year he lowered his monetary goal and added that this account was set up for Jean Moore, as I had questioned the legality of using a ficticious name. I had heard that Jean Moore had married Mike Kerr and I do not know if she retained her prior surname. If not, then this is another Red Flag day for the Event Organizers who like to confuse the paper trail which those nosy IRS auditors like to sniff out.

Publicity of the Leal/Broer/Mike Whitestone/ Dallas Hear the Watchmen conference had gotten so far out of control that a diversion smoke grenade was tossed out on February 25, 2016 by Steve Quayle who had issued a QAlert headlined as Timothy Alberino and His Family Have Come Under A Defined and Very Dangerous Attack Wednesday Night, And, Had Not God Intervened, All Would Have Died.  Again in a post, I transcribed this very strange story, as told by Timothy Alberino and Steve Quayle to Doug Hagmann.

Then during the actual conference in Dallas on March 18-20, 2016, Douglas Hagmann claimed that he had experienced major problems with the TSA at the airport, that terrorist threats had been made against conference participants,  that he was forced to stay in the hotel and advised not to leave, and that the police had erected a 25 foot surveillance tower at the hotel, of which no one had thought to take a photo of.  And then again,  there was that man who was viewed as acting strangely because he did not applaud Russ Dizdar.  That man in the audience was removed from the conference as a possible terrorist.

sheila-zilinsky-march-2016-fb-2

As is usual with Hagmann, no police reports are provided to support his story with facts. However, after the Dallas conference, the drama continued.  I want to thank the alert reader of this blog who sent me a copy of the Vancouver Canada Provincial Adult Court docket.  We must recall that the Event Organizers and attendees claimed that the Dallas conference was anointed by God and a great success.  But within 3 days of the conclusion of this God anointed event,  one of the emcees, referred to by Mike Whitestone as a Warrior Woman for Jesus, ended up on March 23, 2016 with charges being brought against her for assault, uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, causing disturbance, mischief-obstruction/use/enjoyment of property in Vancouver, Canada.

The British Columbia court system, file number 241656 shows as the cause claimed for these actions to be fear of injury/damage by another person.  Screenshots of this event are shown below, taken from the public records of the Vancouver Provincial Adult Court:

As the title of this post suggests, indeed the Dallas Hear The Watchmen Conference will be a hard act to follow by those participating in this month’s Knoxville event.

 

 

 

Mike Whitestone and his GoFundMe Accountability to Man and God

Recently I received 3 emails from a person who was concerned about the Hear The Watchmen conference organizer, Mike Kerr AKA Mike Whitestone,  and his past and present use of Veterans, Christians and persons-in-need as a means of fundraising large amounts of money. A more specific question addressed Mike Whitestone’s GoFundMe account, and the application of $24,076 (almost one quarter of his $100,000 goal) in donations.

as of March 23, 2016

as of March 23, 2016

As I began to look into certain aspects of GoFundMe and their use of WePay as a settlement account, red flags were rising on the potential for hidden fraud with regard to the various methods of withdrawing funds.  Readers who have been with me for a while on this blog, know that long ago I had a career in banking at Seattle-First National Bank (now Bank of America) and also at Amarillo National Bank in Texas. During the seventies and eighties I was a Trust Auditing Officer, a Bond Trustee Officer, and later the Trust Officer and Manager over the Trust Operations Department.  Thus I am familiar with standard accounting procedures and controls which limit the potential for financial fraud.

Generally in this blog I only delve into the surface facts which are publicly known about the subject which I am analyzing.  I don’t have the resources to do a deep investigative report, so I concentrate my efforts on increasing the level of understanding of my readers in identifying  certain telling features of false Christian ministries, which can be spotted by just a cursory review.  The purpose of developing critical thinking skills when entering the strange universe of Christian Alternative Media,  is to avoid getting ensnared in a Psy-Op, whereby one is fleeced spiritually and monetarily.

Here is a copy of an email which I sent last evening on March 23, 2016 to Mike Whitestone through his GoFundMe account. I am publishing this post before he has had a fair chance to respond, and should he answer my question, it will be posted on this blog.  As shown in this screenshot, I asked Mike, “would you kindly advise me where I can locate an accounting of how you have applied the funds you have received thus far.  Sincerely, Jacquelyn Weaver”.mike whitestone go fund me message 323 2016 (2)

The very first red flag on this GoFundMe account is Mike Kerr’s use of a false name, Mike Whitestone.  As some will recall, I transcribed a portion of a John B. Wells interview with Doug Hagmann  which included comments on the use of aliases by Mike Kerr. This quote can be found in my February 20, 2016 post entitled, The King of Jousters, John B. Wells and his ARK Knight-errant, Sir Douglas Hagmann Give A Private Exhibition of Their Prowess.

From this interview, Doug Hagmann, who has been a private investigator for some 30 years, has publicly declared that to his knowledge, Brother Mike has only one legal name, which we are then to assume is his given name Mike Kerr. Therefore we are lead to believe that the other aliases which he uses apparently have no legal validity, such as in the situation where someone might create a fictional name under DBA (Doing Business As) state laws.  DBA names must be legally registered in order for banks to establish accounts and other financial transaction type vehicles, such as debit cards.

So here we have the curious situation where as of yesterday Mike Kerr was asking for donations under a GoFundMe account in the name of Mike Whitestone.  He established this account on September 24, 2015 with a fundraising goal of $100,000, headlining it with The Watchmen Need You. And he displays a photo banner of running horse hoofs, with the words The End-Jesus Wins.

Looking at this account again this morning, I notice that it has been updated with 3 photos from this past weekend’s conference.  The photos of the Veteran which had been utilized for fundraising purposes, are gone.  I read the following:

“Please join Hear the Watchmen Ministries.  Doug and Joe Hagmann and the team at Hear the Watchmen 2016 provide one of the most important and timely Christian gatherings in America.  All events will include important information on how to prepare both physically and spiritually for the times ahead.  This is not about money and there is no profit motive.  We simply need your help to cover COSTS of this Ministry.”

” Hear the Watchmen 2016 will begin its journey in Dallas Texas during March of 2016 and will continue across America stopping in as many cities and towns as long as The Lord provides.  We are already planning stops in Los Angeles, Knoxville, Orlando and other cities across America.  Help us bring the Lord’s message of hope to his children as the End Times rapidly takes shape.  Help us teach Christians what to do and how to prepare for the times ahead by helping us bring a movement of Worship, Revival, Restoration and Hope to as many cities across the United States as possible.  By donating you will be helping us begin the Renaissance of Revival and help bring the Word of God back into the heart of America.”

“We hope you can attend but PLEASE give what you can by donating securely on this page and help us help the Lord provide for his children.  A dollar, five dollars or a hundred dollars it all helps bring Christ’s Family together again.  Be a part of the most important movement of our times.

Above these words are three new photos of the conference which had just been held in Dallas, showing people at an altar call and also getting baptized.  One photo is of Joe Hagmann being baptized, apparently as a result of his rededication to the Lord.  This is a common practice among Charismatic groups, which allows them to boast of the number of baptisms which they have performed, when in fact they are not referencing first time baptisms of new Christians, but are including persons who are being re-baptized.

I am a Baptist, and years ago we used to call this Charismatic practice, “being retreaded”, as if you were to take an old tire and retread the outside.  I understand that in history there were persons who had left the Roman Catholic Church, after recognizing it as a whore church,  who felt it was necessary to be baptized again because they had been sprinkled as a baby, at a time when they had been unable to have faith in Jesus Christ.  However, if your baptism was legitimate the first time, I cannot understand being re-baptized, especially for a feel-good experience, or a photo opportunity.  In the Baptist churches which I belonged, there were often “rededications” at revivals; however, all this meant was that the person was publicly proclaiming that they had grown lukewarm and were repenting of that heart attitude.  There was never a re-baptism involved, as it would be a mockery of one’s original baptism, which was a precious experience in itself.

Getting back to our discussion of the questionable practice of using a fictitious unregistered name for fundraising purposes, here is an interesting screenshot of a GoFundMe section on the topic of withdrawing funds. mike whitestone gofund me disbursements (2) Notice that it is necessary for a Social Security Number to be entered when making a disbursement.  A  fictitious unregistered name does not have a Social Security Number, unless it is illegally obtained.  One cannot set up a bank account under a fictitious name unless DBA papers have been acquired. And the instructions warn not to use someone else’s personal information.

To overcome such a situation, we read on WePay that you can make payments directly to the beneficiary, rather than to the account holder. So in the case of the fictitious Mike Whitestone GoFundMe account, just who exactly is the beneficiary?  Is it The Hear The Watchmen Conference?  Do they have their own tax number and separate checking account?  Is it to Mike Kerr or his wife Jeannie, and their personal bank account?  We are not given specific information on this, and this is a red flag to any prospective donor.mike whitestone wepay disbursements (2)A Social Security Number is a required piece of information for withdrawing funds as these donations are taxable to the recipient, unless funds are dispersed to a bona fide tax-exempt charitable organization. In the past Mike Kerr had displayed a disregard for such legalities, causing issues for his fundraising efforts.

At the beginning of the Hear The Watchmen fundraising,  Mike Whitestone claimed that his GoFundMe account was to “raise funds to Baptize and invite as many Veterans in need to hear the Watchmen as possible.”  See the bottom line on this screen shot.hear the watchmen go fund me (2)

But now we see that donations are needed to “help the Lord provide for his children”, whatever that means,  and to provide A Renaissance Revival via future Hear The Watchmen Conferences across America.

And more recently, Doug Hagmann has hyped up all the supposed  terrorist threats which had been made against the conference speakers this past weekend, which required extra security measures, so they need your money more than ever.

But this all begs the question as to who is personally receiving these funds and how have they been used?  Has Hear The Watchman been set up as a tax exempt organization?  Are they providing a public accounting of how these funds were used?  Are these funds going to the personal account of Mike Kerr, where behind the scenes, he is able to do as he pleases? Christians are to be honest and trustworthy stewards and without the appearance of evil.

The fact is that an implicit fiduciary responsibility was created when this fundraising effort said that donations would be used to benefit Vets who might want to attend the conference.  Now we see the purpose of this fundraising changing it’s face so that donations are now being directed for very nebulous purposes of  future Hear The Watchmen conferences.  And despite the controversy over the aliases of Mike Kerr, this GoFundMe  account is still in the fictitious and apparently legally-unregistered name of Mike Whitestone, who as Overseer of these donations, has not offered on this website to provide any accounting of how this money was spent.

Consider this very recent example of a lawsuit which was brought because church donations were not used for the purposes stated.  The Seattle PI (Post Intelligencer) published on March 1, 2016, an article written by Joel Connelly entitled, Ex-Members, in suit, charge Mark Driscoll with “pattern of racketeering” at Mars Hill Church. The lawsuit makes use of RICO laws, which has interesting implications for anyone who is not only fundraising in a recognized church, but also should give pause to anyone receiving donations who are acting as if they are a “church” by baptizing, giving sermons and altar calls. And should I remind you that communion services and requests for tithes have been part of the “church” services conducted on the Hagmann Report radio show.

Noting “a pattern of racketeering” and giving us an example of a $2.3 million fundraising effort for an international mission project, in which only $120,000 made it overseas, this article quotes William Throckmorton, one of my favorite investigative writers over at Patheos, as saying, “They want to know where the money went“.  Really? Persons who have donated their hard-earned money want to know who benefited from it? Surely more Christians should be rising up and  demanding to know how donations were spent in the name of Jesus Christ, whether in a church proper or by Alternative Media fundraisers for Christ.

As Christians, we should remember that the Lord expects a steward to be able to give an account of his stewardship, no matter what the monetary amount is involved.  And the Christian is to have standards at least as high as the world’s.  For an example of fiduciary accounting, see this Client Trust Accounting Handbook which was made for lawyers who have control over client funds.  If you peruse this PDF, you will understand what ethics are involved in handling money for the benefit of another party.

Doug Hagmann claims that he asked Mike Kerr AKA Mike Whitestone if he had oversight over his managing of the funds for the  March 2016 Hear The Watchmen conference. If so, why is the GoFundMe page still in a false name?  If so, why not provide a public accounting of the receipts and disbursements, so that donors know what it is that they are actually funding?

If you want to ask Mike Whitestone the same question which I asked, here is the link to his account.  At the bottom of the page is a line which reads, What is GoFundMe?  Click on the envelope picture for the Contact page, and then click on “Contact the Organizer”. As a refresher, you might want to read this article link , “The Man Behind Snowball Express” which was sent to me by the person who was concerned about fraud in connection with Mike Kerr AKA Mike Whitestone.

If and when I get an answer to the question I asked Mike Whitestone yesterday evening, it will be added to this post.
