John Little of Omega Shock Comments on the V-The Guerrilla Economist Fraud

This is a link to John Little’s article dated January 5, 2017 entitled, SPECIAL REPORT:  Viji Varghese (AKA V the Guerrilla Economist).

While John Little quotes from Revelationnow.net and this blog, he takes exceptions to this author’s view of the complicity of Stephen Quayle in the promotion of the credentials of V-the Guerrilla Economist. The posting of John Little’s comments here at Tracking the Leopard Meroz are for the purpose of generating a rational discussion of the issues of law and ethics regarding the promotion of anonymous Insiders using false credentials.

Enter Stage Left: The Hollywood Insider Who Covertly Spied on Others at Work

One of the speakers being promoted by the March 2016 Dallas Hear The Watchmen conference is Jon Robberson, who was written up on the John B. Wells Caravan To Midnight show, episode 339 on July 28, 2015 as follows:  jon robberson on CTM 339 (2)

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.   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….”

I listened to this entire interview, and most of what was discussed was generic, open sourced material.  Jon the Hollywood Insider did relate a few personal experiences, and said that he lost his $100,000/year job because he openly spoke to another employee as a Christian.  At the beginning, Jon intersperses this interview with Scripture, and a shofar blowing; at the end he brings on a man singing  A capella. Overall, my first impression of Jon Robberson is that he is friendly, kind, and has a sense of humor; yet because of his close association with this Inner Circle of Trust, I distrust my first impression.  This interview takes place at the American Survival Wholesale warehouse using their cell phones, because Jon is “under threat”.  We also discover that Jon was at the Whitestone Remnant Conference, and has been to Paul McGuire prayer meetings, so he seems to “get around”.

Of great interest is that Jon Robberson is credited with coming up with a solution for Hagmann and Hagmann listeners who desire to have a way to meet each other personally.  Apparently he uses his email H&H Connections @startpage.com for this purpose. Below are two forum members who made comments on this subject on March 14, 2015, more than two months prior to The Hollywood Insider’s first Hagmann interview.H&H Connections (2)H & H Connections 2 (2)

At some point Jon the Hollywood Insider allowed the use of his surname Robberson to be used, and we see some confusion with this transition on the Caravan To Midnight website, where three past interviews can be located under his surname, yet the guest listing  shows Jon listed under “J”, with his photo shown as the anonymous masked man of the movie Vendetta.

Episode 408 does show his full name, but still retains the Guy Fawkes Mask from the movie Vendetta.  It would appear that this photo was taken from an ad for wallpaper, and as fans of the Caravan To Midnight show knowthey can purchase the CTM logo as wallpaper.

Readers of this blog will recall that V the Guerrilla Economist displays the Vendetta Symbol V vendetta drippingtaken from the same movie. And the recent infamous hackers which called themselves Anonymous also favored this Masked image. As this article taken from the Business Insider.com website explains on October 3, 2013, 13 Members of Hacker Group ‘Anonymous’ Were Indicted On Federal ChargesGiven that Christians are not to give the appearance of evil, I wonder how Jon the Hollywood Insider can justify the masking of his identity in this manner?

In September of 2015, The Watchmen’s Cry held a revival/worship/prayer meeting in Sandpoint, Idaho which was deemed successful.  This meeting had no door charge, was sponsored by Nathan Leal’s ministry, and had an offering at the end as a means to offset costs.  This meeting, which was very similar to many church sponsored revivals, somehow sparked a vision for the 2016  Hear The Watchmen conference.hear the watchmen nathan leal organizer (2)Since we are here discussing the evolution of Jon Robberson, from the anonymous Hollywood Insider,  to an openly named Conference Speaker with such “worthies” as the Hagmanns, John B. Wells, Paul McGuire and others, we must question this whole process.  At first, John Robberson had to hide out at the American Survival Wholesale warehouse, in order to give his first interview with Doug Hagmann, because he was under “serious attack”.  Supposedly he was under threat not to talk about what he knows.

Not long after that, he is traveling under his full name and he has become a conference speaker being groomed by Mike Kerr AKA Mike Whitestone, the organizer of the Hear The Watchmen conference, who has a shady past.  The Sandpoint, Idaho meeting was free; this latest conference fee stands at a little over $100, unless you obtain a half off coupon.  The first conference was entirely centered on worship and prayer;  this latest conference centers around radio hosts and book sellers, and the inner circle of trust of the Hagmann/Quayle alternative media group.

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 bonafides cannot be substantiated, he remained anonymous and created his own website and radio show.  But here we have someone who also came onboard as an insider being interviewed by Doug Hagmann, who despite “threats” is now being made over as a conference speaker, and a book writer.  All Roads Lead to Babylon??  It sounds like The Hollywood Insider has come under the spell of book writer and conference speaker, Paul McGuire.  The Hear The Watchmen webpage says of Jon Robberson, that he is one of the few Hollywood Insiders for Christ.  So what?  How many real Christians are there in any profession?  There are plenty of job occupations that are essentially “closed shops”, where the employee is under constraint as a Christian witness.jon robberson latest pic on Hear the watchmen (2)

Remember that Doug Hagmann told his listeners that Jon Robberson, while working in Hollywood, “covertly, and surreptitiously snuck around…looked, watched, kept notes, kept tabs on people, places, events.  He knows where the bodies are buried…”.  Are you sure that you want to give your personal information to Jon Robberson as part of the arrangement for being allowed to meet other Hagmann listeners via H&H Connections?

While looking over the imagery of the movie Vendetta, I found this image of the Vendetta Symbol with the Masked Man standing in front of a poster which says Strength Through Unity, Unity Through Faith, showing some sort of double cross at the bottom.  Why is it that Nathan Leal and others spend so much time analyzing the image motifs of the Super Bowl, and ignore the imagery displayed by the “Christian” Alternative Media?vendetta strength unity faith

The Gold Rush

Despite numerous warnings about the multi-level marketing scheme of the German company, Karatbars International, the self-proclaimed “Rebel With A Cause”, V the Guerilla Economist, is recommending that you join him in his latest gold venture. On October 15, 2015, on Revolution Radio we hear “V”  as radio host, joined by that other infamous Intelligence Insider “W”, and a third man who calls himself James The Russian Analyst. This latter guest is noted on RogueMoney.net as a “U.S. native Russian watcher for over ten years, former (temporary) Moscow resident, husband, Orthodox Christian layman, who likes Alexander I. Solzhenitsyn’s admonition Live not by lies!”  If that is his motto, what is he doing with a fake name like James the Russian Analyst, and why is he hanging out with two of the greatest fakes ever to grace The Hagmann and Hagmann Blogtalk radio show?Multi-Level-Marketing

V’s broadcast begins with blaring tinny music, and  we strain to hear a man’s voice trying to advertise a DVD for “creating your own food like I do”.  One hopes that this company paid nothing for their advertising spot, as we failed to understand what their spokesman was trying to say over the din. I still had not recovered from this experience when a gentleman gave some sort of introduction to the show saying “From the corrupt corridors of Wallstreet…. from gold… (What did you say? Do I need a hearing aid?)…came V the Guerilla Economist…he clears the fog of …disinfo…the Freedom Fighter, a Rebel with a Cause…”

Our radio host, V, ever unsure of his true identity, begins by referring to his listeners as Y’all as in Texas cowboy talk.  He can’t seem to break himself of this odd habit, and even asks himself out loud why he keeps saying Y’all, when supposedly he is in New York.   I lived 28 years in Texas, and believe me, V would not want to know what Texans really think of New Yorkers with a fake Texas twang.  Banker, Baker, Karatbars, carrotbars,  whatever; it is all the same to V as he juggles semantical accents and arguments all over the place to skirt the legalities of misrepresenting his credentials.  In the meantime on this same show, W is joking about living in a missile silo with a rosebush on top.  I think he means he used to go by the name of Rosebud. I am beginning to understand what a multi-level marketing scheme looks like.

If one types in Karatbars International into a search engine, one can read the words of this company describing their various gold products line.  One can also find all types of scam warnings given about this company, which are then countered by the loyal multi-tiered marketing representatives.  Probably the most authoritative warning comes from Quebec, Canada from  the Autorite’ Des Marche’s Financiers (AMF).  But let us take a look at what Karatbars has to say about itself.

Their webpage is very professional in design and summarizes their enterprise as “Karatbars International GmbH offers a wide range of products and options in the 999.9 fine gold market space.  Our core products are 1g, 2.5g, and 5 g minted 24 karat gold ingots from LBMA accredited refineries.  In addition to Karatbars classic core products, we offer collector cards for sports teams, professional athletes, and multinational charities.  Karatbars has a custom branding card program whereby anyone that qualifies may have the company produce one, or thousands of branding cards that meet the customer’s requirements.”  One can buy these products online as desired, and as always it is good to be a comparison shopper.

What we are discussing here in this post however, is their opportunity to join them in a multi-level marketing venture. And so we access their webpage which discusses the compensation plan.  I am glad that they confess that their compensation package is confusing and not easy to understand, as that is exactly how I found their explanation to be.  What I did understand is that there is the requirement to recruit other people who in turn recruit others, and these relationships affect your compensation. Now there is a lot of semantical nonsense going on in order to escape laws which govern illegal pyramid schemes. Somehow they have developed a system that has right and left legs; the left leg apparently being half as short as the right. If one desires to receive higher paybacks, all you have to do is pay more for your membership level.  I am unsure how long it takes on average to recover this initial cost.

One of the observations made about Karatbars is that they are quite a bit more expensive than buying gold from other well respected companies.  One example given said that in addition to the higher cost of Karatbars, there was also a shipping expense; whereas these other companies sometimes had free shipping.  Now the Karatbars marketing reps argue that you are buying a product, not an investment.  Why do they do this?  Well it is well known in the US gold coin business, which is virtually unregulated, that they sell coins to collectors. If these coins were to be marketed as an investment, a not very well marked line is crossed which might cause the seller to enter into the world of investment regulations and laws.

What does Karatbars International claim?  This company is fairly new, having been founded in 2011 in Stuttgart, Germany, by Harald Seiz, CEO.  He is seen on a video as saying that their company goal is to “bring families from around the world true independence and financial security”. We are shown 5 photos as follows: 1. Financial Liberty (photo of affectionate young couple), 2. Financial Independence (photo of large modern house), 3. Hedging in a Financial Crisis (photo shows gold bars), 4. A second mainstay income (photo shows nice car), and 5. a career or main profession (photo shows huge yacht). Then they state that whether full time or part time, “you can achieve your financial goals”.  Karatbars are not a product like carrotbars.  They are an investment, and Karatbars International say in their video, “No longer fear a financial crisis, currency devaluation or hyper inflation”.

The other marketing rep comment I heard is that Karatbars have been sold in 120 countries (the video I watched said 74, at the time).  But so what?  Very few countries outside of the US and Canada have made a good inroad into implementing consumer protection laws. And just because Karatbars International comply with German laws, does not mean that you might not end up breaking a few US laws if you start recruiting US citizens into your pyramidal type marketing venture.

One of the company statements on their website says, “All Karatbars 1 gram gold bars are 1. certified and laminated with UV protective film.  2.  Stamped with a valid trademark.”  Apparently they also sell an extremely expensive devise that can read the code on the bar to ascertain the authenticity of their product in order to deter someone trying to counterfeit their gold bars.  While reading up on the so called DNA system of authentication, my thoughts turned to a warning in the Bible in James 5:3, “Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat  your flesh as it were fire.  Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days”.  Since gold is the most inert, non-reactive of the metals, and never reacts with oxygen, one has to wonder why the Bible says that this particular gold rusts.  There are several metals which do rust, such as iron.

Wikipedia has an article on Pyrite, which begins, “the mineral pyrite, or iron pyrite, also known as fool’s gold, is an iron sulfide with the chemical formula FeS2.  This mineral’s metallic luster and pale brass-yellow hue give it a superficial resemblance to gold…the name pyrite is derived from a Greek word…”of fire” or “in fire”…pyrite is sometimes found in association with small quantities of gold.  Gold and arsenic occur as a coupled substitution in the pyrite structure..”fools gold

So the question must be asked, why are Karatbars laminated with a UV protective film?  My wedding and engagement rings are made of gold, and despite the fact that my hands over the last 31 years have been submersed in water on a daily basis, I have never noted any rust.  Personally, unless I could test the gold content of high priced bars and coins, I would prefer to have the unlaminated ones.  The day you have to laminate gold may be the day you should start wondering if someone is trying to stave off the  conditions which might reveal a bit of fool’s gold.  And while you are at it, ask yourself why V the Guerilla Economist, who was so highly promoted by Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann as being one of the highest level financial insiders, should have to stoop so low as to promote a pyramid marketing scheme?

UPDATE 11/19/2015  This morning I was contacted by a “Sicilian Mobsta”  who says that “V ain’t one of theirs”.  The latest guess is that he is from India.  Apparently this post has tested the mettle of V, and he is very worried about undergoing an authentication test,  and has covered himself in some kind of UV protected Laminate so as to avoid having his inner corruption exposed.
