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 guardian.com 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 spanamwar.com 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 KenWelch.com, 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 Whenshtf.com 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.

Whatever IS IS

Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth:  men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.  But they shall proceed no further:  for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs was also.  2 Timothy 3:7-9

In the late 70’s, while living in Seattle, I went to Anchorage, Alaska to audit a bank trust department. When the weekend arrived, I remembered the story I had been told by my clients of the National Bank Examiners who had gone hiking and had become lost for several days.  Instead, I rented a car. There was little choice as to roads, so I  headed down to Valdez.  It was hours before I arrived, as I was traveling a mere 10 miles per hour, weaving around overturned and abandoned cars and the largest pot holes I had ever seen.  Driving alone, and with very little traffic, I amused myself by stopping along the road periodically to take photos of overturned cars and of magnificent snow topped peaks.  Arriving finally in Valdez, I observed a glacier flowing into the harbor. Beautiful, but remote and very rugged terrain.  It was June, when the sun never sets, and despite it being the peak of the tourist season, the roads had not been repaired.

Therefore, I was surprised to learn from Dave Hodges on the fourth of July, 2015, that Any Day, Russia Will Launch a Three Pronged Invasion of the United States. Apparently his post was a continuation of a previous article two days prior called, On The Heels of Jade Helm, the Planned Russian Invasion of the US is Revealed”.   According to Hodges, the invasion will begin in Alaska, and come south, taking the west coast by surprise.  Then another invasion will come down from the North Pole through Canada.  In the last  35 years has Alaska overcome their frozen and dark winters to now have highways capable of swift military movement? Or is this solely to be an air attack? Exactly what are the logistics of this invasion, as based on logic and reality, instead of an attention seeking Alternative Media star and his sources?

It was no surprise to me, however, when at the end of the article, a large color advertisement for SQ Metals, encouraged me to Buy Precious Metals with Steve Quayle.  Just in case I was unpersuaded, below was a statement declaring “a safe place to purchase your gold and silver.  Dave Hodges is a customer”. Perhaps a line should be added which tells us that the motives of Dave Hodges have yet to be refined, as gold and silver,  in the fire.

Who is Dave Hodges?  According to News With Views where many of his older  columns may be read, Dave Hodges is an award winning psychology, sociology, statistics and research professor, a college basketball coach as well as a former mental health counselor. Dave also serves as the spokesperson to the newly formed national coalition, The American Coalition to Protect Personal Property Rights, which is designed to combat the growing erosion of personal property rights across America.

Often referred to America’s most independent talk show host, Dave Hodges is the host of the nationally syndicated, hard-hitting and exciting investigative radio talk show called “The Common Sense Show.” “The Common Sense Show” airs on the Republic Broadcasting Network every Sunday evening from 9-11pm Central. The show features an array of impressive guests coupled with an in-depth analysis of important personal, social and geopolitical issues which are largely unreported in the mainstream media. The wide variety of show topics ranges from the loss of constitutional liberties, to the subsequent implementation of a police state under world governance, to exploring the limits of human potential. The primary purpose of “The Common Sense Show” is to provide the listening audience with the tools necessary to reclaim both their individual freedoms and national sovereignty.

Do you remember the time when President Bill Clinton was accused of, well, indecent conduct?  He publically claimed that he never had sex with that woman, on the basis of word definitions and semantics that defy the real world. “Whatever Is is”  would come to be a paraphrase of his method of  redefining normal word usage in order to provide a defense for his actions.   Today, if Dave Hodges were to look into the Clinton indiscretions, I imagine that he would interpret Whatever Is is to really mean, Whatever ISIS.  In other words ISIS was responsible way back then for a lot more trouble than we ever knew.  All insider sources will tell you that. This type of word play is constant these days, and I found a statement on the internet that ISIS really stands for Israeli Secret Intel Services.  And all along we were blaming the Muslims. Most assertions of the Alternative Media nowadays are based on fantasy, sprinkled with a little fact, and do not represent  solid investigative journalism.

Now there is an interesting comment on Planet InfoWars. It was written January 7,2014 by Workingtwojobs and is entitled, Doug Hagmann with Dave Hodges Make Claims Against the Military Using “Sources” that Obama Would View as Treason.  This comment is worthy of reading, since Dave Hodges apparently does not allow critical warnings against him to be lodged on his site. The person who wrote this comment has constructed a well researched, solid piece of  journalism, which is hard to find in the comment section of most websites.  Reference is made to the 12/20/2013 blog talk radio program, The Hagmann and Hagmann Report.  Since it involves Dave Hodges, let us wander back into our time machine to hear them discuss whatever Is is.

Now when Doug Hagmann introduces  Dave Hodges, he thanks him directly for his “bravery”, saying “thank you for being a formidable warrior on the front lines here of the tyranny that is encroaching our country.  God bless you…”

On the front lines?  Send him to Alaska this coming September, please, please, please! Dave Hodges in the interview says, “I know some ex-intel types who went into hiding to escape the ravages of what could be coming and this was about a year ago when they ran for the hills…” Well we know that just this week, Ric Wiles of TruNews verbally threw away his American citizenship and plans to leave the United States. Rumor has it that TruNews  is now become GoodNews.

Getting back to the 12/20/2013 interview, at the 2 hour mark Doug Hagmann says that Mr. Hodges has shared some of his sources with him and “I can tell you that they are impeccable”. Impeccable means faultless, and in Christian theology this word is usually used to describe the sinlessness of Jesus Christ.  Following this comment on the impeccability of Dave Hodges’ sources, whichHagmann says he knows by name, DougHagmann insinuates that there are people who might want to assassinate Hodges because of his inside knowledge. This is followed byHagmann asking Hodges, “…what is the most important bit of information that you have got that you want to share?  That you want to make sure that people know?  That will not only inform people, but to helpinsure your own personal safety.”

Dave Hodges replies, “God helps those who help themselves.  And I really encourage people as I have said to prepare.” Does he mean buy more gold and silver and prepper supplies from him and his best friends?  Then Hodges continues, “…there is a reason why DHS has come on their list and villanized people like you and I, fundamental Christians, Bible believing Christians, because they know full well that they can’t counter the forces of God.  They know this.  They fear our spirituality.  This is why they’ve infiltrated the churches with 501 (c) (3)’s bastardized the pulpit…I tell people to leave their church…”

I know that I fear their spirituality.  Just kidding. We are supposed to leave our churches?   Not only that, but as recently as July 2015 when he warns of a Russian invasion, first coming out of Alaska to the west coast, and a second invasion coming from the North Pole down to Canada, he concludes by telling Americans to leave their country! Why don’t they take their own advice and get out of Dodge?

This blog, Tracking the Leopard Meroz, began with personal experiences which occurred  within fundamental, independent, King James Bible believing churches. It was an observation on my part, that there were certain men crept in unawares, through secret societies, such as the Order of the Knights Templar Crusaders, defenders of the Holy Grail and the Order of the Leopard priesthood, who were causing church members with a sound mind to leave the local church. These church members, who were being oppressed, were not persons who displayed sinful behavior which they had refused to forsake.  They were placed under a ban for asking too many questions.  Dave Hodges always gives his doom and gloom messages without ever giving Scriptural counsel or comfort, so am I being unreasonable to ask whether he is really a Christian?  How can this man free enslaved minds without the power of Jesus Christ?

In the Dave Hodges July 4, 2015 post, he states, “In the final days of Jade Helm, or in Jade Helm’s successor, Russian troops will be introduced to the drill gone live, and will carry out their mandates against the American people with a vengeance.” He then refers to a few events in the news to back his assertion, without making the requisite connections, to convince the reader that September indeed will be a month for the history books.

Perhaps he considers himself to be like President Clinton, justified in changing word meanings and rules governing logical thought in order to set up his marks for his latest confidence trick. These men, such as Hodges and Hagmann, are not loners. Like Jannes and Jambres, they often work their con using two magicians. When Pharaoh called in  the wise men,  sorcerers, and the magicians of Egypt, to use their enchantments to match the powers displayed by Moses, they reached a point where their magic could not prevail further.

When that point is reached in our times,  the magicians of the Christian Alternative Media will no longer be able to  smirk at their con, and say, “Whatever Is is“.  The vocal emphasis on these three words will then become Whatever Is Is. And then we will know that the real servants of God will have laid down the gauntlet.
