Steve Quayle Exposes Doug Hagmann’s NSA Targeting Allegation is Fake … Updated

19 November 2014 41 Comments

Important update. Scroll down in RED

Normally in journalism you correct yourself in 48-72 hours. In this case, it has been more than 30 days since I reported my National Security Agency (NSA) correction story. Since then none of the principals have corrected anything with me or apologized to their own audiences.

If you have questions about this please refer to my first article, Did Doug Hagmann make up his NSA allegation he asked me to report?

Also be sure to listen to Hagmann in his words in the videos below.

Now I’m simply going to report what I’ve uncovered since then.

I’ve obtained more evidence that Doug Hagmann, Judi McLeod, the owner and editor of Canada Free Press—whom I was writing for at the time, and “W,” Hagmann’s Intelligence Insider, also known as Agent Wayne, asked me to report a false allegation. That’s unconscionable.

Shortly after I reported their allegation, Doug Hagmann threatened me with legal action for trying to obtain actionable evidence via Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests that the NSA had targeted him. He had claimed the NSA was trying to find his intelligence (“W”) and Department of Homeland Security insider sources. He had Judi McLeod’s blessing.

For those who are not familiar with FOIA, FOIA gives a person access to potentially obtain federal agency records that are enforceable in court. It’s an invaluable tool for investigative journalists.

It can now be reported that Steve Quayle is an accomplice in protecting Doug Hagmann and his NSA targeting allegation

I will now prove it to you.

Enter the media person, who Doug Hagmann had been speaking to when the NSA supposedly targeted him. His name was redacted (blocked out) in Hagmann’s voluntary statement/affidavit in the original story the trio asked me to report.

Judi McLeod had also emailed me an un-redacted version when she asked me to report Hagmann’s allegation. I knew all along who Doug Hagmann claimed the other person was.

Because the mystery “investigative journalist” outted himself after I corrected my reporting of Doug Hagmann’s NSA targeting allegation—which is what honest investigative journalists should do when they can no longer stand by a story based on the evidence, now I’m free to report it.

It was Steve Quayle of SteveQualye.com (see below for the email documentation).

REVIEW: Below is the first email from Judi McLeod to me, dated June 3, 2013, regarding Doug Hagmann’ s NSA allegation. It’s entitled “Important.” It includes the un-redacted (unblocked) version (except for his phone numbers) of Doug Hagmann’s voluntary statement/ affidavit.

Please download this PFD version of the email, print it out and compare it with what I’m reporting and documenting next.

Note that Steve Quayle’s name appears on p.2 of the PDF—as the person Doug Hagmann claimed he had been speaking with when the NSA showed up on his telephone’s caller id.

See Doug Hagmann’s “voluntary statement” here and at CFP here with Steve Quayle’s name blocked out.

This email also includes what Doug Hagmann wrote to Judi McLeod about his “source” and the NSA targeting allegation. The “source” is “W”—Wayne whose last name also begins with a “W.”

The names that I blocked out in black marker are other journalists who are not involved.

Also look at the second email below the PDF and video because it provides additional evidence that Wayne helped me with the NSA article, despite what he has been telling people.

Doug Hagmann's NSA Targeting Allegation with "W" his "Intelligence Insider"

Doug Hagmann needs to produce the original voluntary statement/affidavit – sworn under the penalty of perjury. He claims he took an oath before a notary and/or a municipal court judge publicly regarding this. As I originally reported, I never saw a sworn affidavit only the email versions. Over thirty days have passed since then.

Listen to Doug Hagmann talk about the unnamed, well known “journalist” by clicking here you know now is Steve Quayle.

See one of my email exchanges with “W”—Wayne, Doug Hagmann’s Intelligence Insider referenced in Doug Hagmann’s “voluntary statement,” as the intelligence source, who provided information on “Benghazi.”

Wayne spent a significant amount of time on the phone with me going over the original story about Doug Hagmann’s NSA allegation entitled, How Extensive is the NSA Domestic Surveillance of U.S. Media? Is it legal? As you can see it was a late night.

You can compare our email below with the original article here and at CFP here.

Review: Easier to read originals will be provided as necessary.

Update-(this is taken from my initial NSA correction story). Also review:
Note the timestamp on this June 4, 2013 email between me and Hagmann. The story was published at CFP hours later. I had sent the story to both Hagmann and “W” to ensure I had the correct information (according to them) before the article was published. “W” is also known as Agent Wayne.

Review:

At the time when Judi McLeod, Doug Hagmann and Wayne asked me to report the NSA allegation, I was not very familiar with Steve Quayle’s work or with what people call the “alternative” or “truther” media. My bio.

First, I want to apologize to anyone who has been adversely affected by this.

Second, I want you to know that I’ve had a good relationship with Judi McLeod as a journalist, submitting articles that I was paid for when she published them.

Third, this was the first time Judi McLeod directly had asked me to write an article for her. Since I am an experienced journalist, who walked away from “mainstream” media outlets after they killed my stories as other journalist are also doing, I was blindsided at the lack of depth and integrity I saw in the alternative media when the credibility problems with Doug Hagmann first surfaced shortly after his NSA allegation was published (more on this further below).

Steve Quayle was represented to me by “W” as a seasoned talk-show host appearing on shows like Coast to Coast, Alex Jones, as a regular on Doug Hagmann’s radio show, and a prolific author. Wayne also explained that Hagmann had a huge following within the Christian community like Quayle does.

Now let’s review the evidence. You decide.

The person that “W”—Wayne presented to me as a prolific and well-respected author was not the person I met on email.

As a seasoned, traditional journalist with a critically acclaimed Hollywood memoir that was made into a documentary that aired on HBO about Robert Evans, I’ve worked with and reported on controversial and high- profile people for years. Evans was one of them.

The former Vice President of Productions of Paramount Pictures, Evans was responsible for the production of films including: The Odd Couple, The Detective, Love Story, Rosemary’s Baby, The Godfather, Serpico, The Great Gatsby, and as a producer for films including: Chinatown, Marathon Man, and Black Sunday. Evans also received the David O. Selznick lifetime achievement award presented to him by Dustin Hoffman.

To be brief, I’ve also covered the United Nations, presidential campaigns, written books on Bill and Hillary Clinton (here and here), based on my cloak and dagger experiences with a former Clinton White House insider, and served as a judge for the International Emmy Awards in the news category.


In an email exchange with Steve Quayle that was forwarded to me, initially, Steve Quayle declared that my reporting was, “TOTAL BULL MANURE” without providing any evidence to refute what I had reported. He writes his emails in CAPS like he is screaming.

Then Steve Quayle outted himself when he vouched for Doug Hagmann’s NSA targeting allegation by confirming it with a very different version from Doug Hagmann’s detailed reported account.

They can’t keep their stories straight.

I immediately knew when I received that email that Steve Quayle was not telling the truth. Now I had even more proof that I had been asked to report a false allegation.

IT WAS NOT A LIE IT WAS HIS FOIA REQUEST NUMBER WHICH ONLY THE MOST NAIVE PERSON WOULD EVER BELIEVE THAT THE NSA WOULD TURN OVER HIS FILE NUMBER LET ALONE THE CONTENTS-YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE-YOU SHOULD HAVE GONE TO DOUG BASED ON MATTHEW 18–YOU VIOLATED THE SPIRIT OF THE WORD OF GOD-AND I TRUST DOUG AS I WAS ON THE PHONE THE DAY THE NSA SHOWED UP ON HIS WEB BROWSER AND EVEN SENT HIM THE SAME THING THAT SHOWED UP ON MINE-ONLY A FOOL JUDGES A MATTER ON HEARING ONE SIDE OF THE MATTER AND DOUGS MISTAKE WAS LISTENING TO HER IN THE FIRST PLACE -YOU ARE THE ONE BEARING A TALE -WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE WOMAN WHO IS STIRRING UP STRIFE-SHAME ON HER AND I HAVE HAD DOUG LITERALLY GO TO BAT TO SAVE MY LIFE-MAY THE LORD GOD OF HEAVEN REBUKE HER AS I AM ASTONISHED THAT YOU QUOTE THE SCRIPTURE BUT DONT EVEN APPLY THE BASICS TO OBEYING THE SCRIPTURE IN YOUR LIFE AS IT APPLIES TO YOUR SITUATION-

According to Hagmann’s very specific voluntary statement/affidavit, the NSA didn’t target his web browser or Steve Quayle’s (easily captured using a basic screen saver program). Instead Hagmann, claimed he had witnessed the NSA on his caller id after he hung up the phone with Steve Quayle. Doug Hagmann had also claimed after hearing a ring-back, he picked up the phone and heard a recording from the Utah NSA Data Recording Center. He was alone at the time.

In addition there is no mention in Hagmann’s account of anyone else seeing anything or that he received a confirmation from Quayle—which would have provided proof that the allegation was true.

They can’t keep their stories straight.

Read: Hagmann’s NSA allegation in his voluntary statement/ affidavit in How Extensive is the NSA Domestic Surveillance of U.S. Media? Is it legal? and at CFP here.

On May 30, Hagmann, a U.S. citizens, after having a phone conversation with another internationally known media type, also a U.S. citizen, regarding various government activities, who were both in the U.S. at the time, upon ending their conversation and hanging up, Hagmann received a strange ringed phone call. “Curious because of the ring tone, he looked at the caller ID displayed and was startled to see the following on the telephone caller ID screen: “UT NSA DATA REC CTR.”” He picked up the receiver and heard the following message in a male voice:

“…your notification that the Utah NSA Data Recording Center successfully captured this landline communication under file # [I was unable to copy the numbers as they were spoken quickly]. Refer to senior duty officer for access code under file #[this appeared to be a different alpha-numeric sequence].”

Also review Hagmann talking about his NSA allegation

Note the specificity in Doug Hagmann’s version of what happened when he was supposedly targeted by the NSA—hung up the phone, caller id, ring-back, recording, …. There is no, I repeat no mention that the NSA “showed up on his web browser” or Steve Quayle’s or anyone else’s.

Again, Steve Quayle’s version so we are 100% clear: “AND I TRUST DOUG AS I WAS ON THE PHONE THE DAY THE NSA SHOWED UP ON HIS WEB BROWSER AND EVEN SENT HIM THE SAME THING THAT SHOWED UP ON MINE.”

Next, it is critical to point out that in a direct email exchange with me and Steve Quayle that happened days later on October 29, 2014, Steve Quayle did not acknowledge that he was supposedly the other person on the phone at the time of Doug Hagmann’s alleged NSA incident—according to Doug Hagmann’s version or his own Google web browser version.

Steve Quayle’s email to me was initiated by another person’s email, who cc’s other people. You’d think he might have mentioned something about his involvement considering I knew all of Hagmann’s alleged details.

If anyone could have debunked what I had reported, Steve Quayle should have been a leading candidate.

Instead, Steve Quayle accused me of pushing Doug Hagmann into filing FOIAs. He also lectured, attacked and berated me using Bible Scripture.

It’s a pattern and technique I’ve seen before that is used essentially to intimidate and bully people.

Review:

Text: The first email Steve Quayle sent me, dated October 29:

YOU ARE SOWING DISCORD AND YOU STILL HAVENT APPROACHED THIS BIBLICALLY MATTHEW 18– IS YOUR INSTRUCTION MANUAL-YOU ARE OUT OF ORDER AND SLANDEROUS-LOOK UP THE SEVEN THINGS GOD HATES-YOU WHO SEW DISCORD AMONGST THE BRETHREN-YOU ARE IN THE FLESH AND GUILTY OF ENVY,STRIFE AND BITTERNESS-YOU ARE THE ONE WHO PUSHED HIM TO DO FOIA FROM THE NSA AND TOTALLY IGNORANT OF THE FACT THAT THE NSA WONT EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE FILES LET ALONE RELEASE THEM-I HAVE NEVER SEEN DOUG TAKE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST ANYONE LET ALONE INNOCENT PEOPLE-YOU ARE OF THE WRONG SPIRIT PERIOD!

In addition, Steve Quayle did not request that I correct anything I had written, but he did ask me to: “STOP THIS WAR NOW.”

I don’t know what war he is talking about. I’m an investigative journalist correcting my reporting which is what journalists should do if they are honest, in the terrible event that they were exploited to report a story that they could no longer stand by.

Moreover, I did not name Steve Quayle in my NSA correction piece, in part, because I had no reason to believe he was involved with Doug Hagmann’s threat against me. He inserted himself when he emailed and attacked me.

Ironically, Steve Quayle also accused me of slander with no proof.

Note: Before Steve Quayle emailed me, I had been told that some of these self-professed Christian truth-tellers in their alternative media circles were saying not-so nice things about me and my character such as: I was from the devil or was a Jezebel spirit and so forth.

Quayle’s email to me also confirmed the character assassination attempts against me were true.

I confess. I am tired of these self-professed Christian truth-tellers not telling the truth or apologizing—threatening and now attacking and defaming me.

That’s when I called Steve Quayle out.

I asked him why he was lying, defaming and attacking me. He denied doing any of that when I knew otherwise and could prove it.

Steve Quayle’s email to me, dated November 5:

Really Steve? It is me who has not acted biblically and like a decent, honest person would act? Don’t you think it is time for Doug to act biblically? Are you going to make up for all the damage he has caused me and other people by his threats and lies and get him to also apologize to everyone?

What a dramatic switch in you? You are giving me whip lash. I am very aware of the lies you have been spreading about me as well as emailing other people. Was that biblical too?

Marinka

To stop Steve Quayle’s appalling duplicity, I made an over-the-top bet with him that I could prove he was lying and defaming me. I had his email proof. Steve Quayle did not take my bet.

As I wrote in an email to him, “Lying and trying to defame me is not so easy, is it Steve, when there are consequences? Of course you didn’t take the bet. How could you because you know you would lose. If you were a Christian truth-teller and so honest, and I am so terrible with the “wrong spirit” and “sowing strife” you would have jumped at that bet… Also I did not slander anyone. My reporting is documented. Show me where.”

As of this writing, Steve Quayle has not produced any evidence of where I slandered anyone.

Making bets is an effective way to stop people from lying. They start singing a different tune when there is money on the line. Right Wayne? Granted the bet I made with Quayle was ridiculously high –$25K (I usually make much smaller bets), I was making a point. Stop the BS.

While I am not a big gambler, I started making bets and issuing monetary fines, like late penalties, years ago to make publishing deadlines during my first book project— that Hollywood memoir.

The notorious and legendary producer, who was also busted for cocaine in the 1980’s, and implicated in murder during the making of The Cotton Club that had mob funding, also liked to gamble. Evans pays his bets when he loses.

Making bets with Evans played a role in completing his memoir on time. I only bet when I know I’m going to win. It also speaks volumes to a person’s character if they lose and don’t pay up.

Now let’s address Steve Quayle’s statements about FOIA.

Quayle email to me: “YOU ARE THE ONE WHO PUSHED HIM TO DO FOIA FROM THE NSA AND TOTALLY IGNORANT OF THE FACT THAT THE NSA WONT EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE FILES LET ALONE RELEASE THEM.”

Quayle email that was forwarded to me: “IT WAS NOT A LIE IT WAS HIS FOIA REQUEST NUMBER WHICH ONLY THE MOST NAIVE PERSON WOULD EVER BELIEVE THAT THE NSA WOULD TURN OVER HIS FILE NUMBER LET ALONE THE CONTENTS.”

As I documented here it was my NSA FOIA case #70900, not Doug Hagmann’s. There is a big difference. Anyone can get a NSA FOIA number if they file a FOIA.

It does not prove that Doug Hagmann was targeted by the NSA to find his sources.

It appears that Steve Quayle is a different type of “journalist” than I am. I am old-school and the type who is sourcing and documenting.

Quayle’s type of “journalism” appears to be a pattern of what I’ve been seeing in the alternative media, called “fear porn,” used on audiences to gin up donations or perhaps worse, provoke violence. There is more than enough bad things going on in the world, there is no need to make anything up.

As for pushing FOIAs on Doug Hagmann, I didn’t push him; I asked him if he knew how to file them. He did not which was surprising since apparently he’s a 30+ year private investigator. Then I offered to file them for him because I file a lot of FOIAs and he was busy.

Filing FOIAs is a crucial step to take if you actually want to try to get actionable evidence of government abuses. I also showed him how to personally file them himself (separate from me) as you can see in this example below with the DHS. This way there would be two FOIA tracks going. I wrote him this: “You might want to…” Pushy?

Review:

An email from me to Hagmann dated June 13, 2013. Judi McLeod is cc’d.

Subject: Fwd: DHS FOIA Request

Doug,
For your records. I sent a FOIA for you to DHS as well. Any other bases to cover?
You might want to file one under the Privacy Act with DHS as well. Here’s the link. – M
http://www.dhs.gov/how-submit-foia-or-privacy-act-request-department-homeland-security#6

To my knowledge Doug Hagmann did not personally file FOIAs to get evidence of his NSA targeting allegation. Had he done so, he would have had updates to report and talk about by now.

Ironically, neither has Steve Quayle, who has claimed that he was also targeted by the NSA on his web browser. To my knowledge, he did not have a computer expert check out his computer either.

Wouldn’t you try everything possible to get evidence if you were targeted by the NSA? I would.

Former CBS news correspondent Sharyl Attkisson did, and wrote a book reporting her tangible efforts, “Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington.” I haven’t finished her book but I’ve read how she had computer experts check her computers and they found evidence. That’s what investigative journalist do.

Review: Here is another email from me to Doug Hagmann dated July 9, 2013, regarding getting additional information from him for the FBI to try to obtain evidence of his NSA allegation. Judi McLeod is cc’d.

Doug Hagmann never called me back. Phone records will confirm this.

Subject: Pls. call. FBI FOIA

Hi Doug,

Just got a response back from FBI FOIA. It hasn’t been processed yet, they are denying my request for expedited processing which I will appeal.

Please give me a call when you can so I can fill you in and see if you have info to add. I tried the number I have for you but it just rang and rang.

Freedom of Information Act
As for a person being naïve or ignorant to believe I could have obtained documentation from FOIA, Steve Quayle neglected to acknowledge that I filed FOIAs at several agencies—NSA, Federal Bureau of Investigations, Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department and the Central Intelligence Agency. Also, you don’t know if you don’t try.

Is Steve Quayle saying that people like Larry Klayman and groups like Judicial Watch, Electronic Frontier Foundation, and other journalists like me– thanks in large part to FOIA, who are doing our best to inform the public and expose malfeasance in government via FOIA are ignorant and naïve too or it is just me? Let’s be clear now.

Below are several recent examples that show how valuable FOIA can be despite what Steve Quayle says.

Note: Our email exchanges also included Doug Hagmann and W’s bizarre relationship. I included that on purpose because I was told that Steve Quayle is at odds with Wayne for reasons that happened before my NSA correction article was published.

Wayne spent the last year trying to get me to forget about Doug Hagmann’s threat and the NSA allegation they asked me to report. In the Clinton’s world, that is called damage control.

You bet I would like to know more about that and what their motivations are/were.

Thankfully, I have great readers who tip me off on what this group is up to. I also get daily email alerts. Wouldn’t you if you were me and were threatened for reporting a story they asked you to report?

More on Hagmann’s Intelligence Insider—“W”

As I wrote in my first NSA correction piece, Wayne, who was previously concealed in the shadows, outted himself. He broke his silence shortly after Hagmann threatened me, covering up for Hagmann, apparently trying to legitimize him. As previously documented, Wayne was Hagmann’s NSA allegation confirming source.

As Hagmann’s Intelligence Insider, Wayne gave him an interview at Canada Free Press, and appeared on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report, first as “the professor,” then as “W.” Listen here. It was shocking.

It was especially shocking considering Wayne had claimed that the NSA had been looking to find him–as also evidenced in Hagmann’s “voluntary statement.”

Who needs the NSA when all it took for “W” to expose himself was for Hagmann to threaten me with legal action for trying to get evidence of THEIR NSA targeting allegation.

Obviously this is not how a person with Wayne’s supposed background would act. What was really going on here? Incredibly, Hagmann (and others) describe “W,” as if he was the real life James Bond to their trusting audiences.

You do not have to be an investigative journalist to know that something was wrong.

Why would Wayne destroy his anonymity by exposing himself publicly like that? He compromised himself. Hagmann’s credibility was rightfully under fire, he did not only threaten me with legal action, right Wayne? AND nobody that well-connected, super spook-like, decent and ethical, as the Intelligence Insider, “W,” was portrayed to be, would have fastened their wagon to and gone public with Doug Hagmann after Doug Hagmann threatened me or anyone else. Right?

It was mindblowing when Wayne went on to became such a regular fixture on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report that some people suggested he get his own show.

I remember when I was outted in the Washington Post after that Clinton impeachment thing. Never one for the spotlight, I’ve always preferred to work in the background on other people’s books or investigations and stories. That’s why I don’t “out” people, but when people out themselves, they are fair game.

Wayne, did not only expose himself publicly with Hagmann, he was exposed here: Wayne Willott misses out on Powerball prize. No big payout coming for Seattle resident, on BlackNET Intelligence Channel (thanks to a reader), and elsewhere. Listen to Wayne Willott with Steve Quayle pushing the Cliven Bundy standoff in Nevada (calls in during hour three) and the mutual love fest.

Of course there is something else going on and Wayne Willott, so-called Christian good guy, man of integrity, is not who he claims to be.

Meanwhile Wayne Willott tries to feed other journalists info. Beware.

If he can do this to me, he can do it to them.

Note to my media colleagues: While not all of Wayne Willott’s background info has been bad, obviously some of it is. If you require additional documentation, reach out to me. False allegations are unconscionable.

Also review Hagmann’s CFP archives Note the number of articles Hagmann has done with his “intelligence Insider,” “W,” Wayne Willott, in the archives in the headline or in the content before and after Hagmann threatened me with legal action. Listeners know all the topics he feeds to Hagmann (including Benghazi, occult, secret societies, Russia, NWO, Christianity, silver code/economy) No super sleuthing required.

It’s worth mentioning that shortly before I wrote the NSA correction piece, Wayne Willott tried to get me to work with him on a magazine project with another person.

Once again I gave Wayne Willott the opportunity to come clean and make things right. He did not. I turned his job offer down.

Review: One of the email exchanges about Wayne Willott—Hagmann’s Intelligence Insider’s project. I’ve blocked out the other person who was also involved.

Motives? The love of money and fame or something else?

Could money and a media platform be playing a factor in this or is there something more nefarious at play? It is easy to see that the more fear that is generated, more money and donations come in.

Why have I’ve also been told about “contain and id?” What’s that all about?

While I can’t report with certainty what their motivations are, Steve Quayle has fundraised for Doug Hagmann, and apparently has some personal financial interests in the radio show too. Quayle also appears as a frequent guest with his friends. The show archives confirm this.

Jun 5, 2013

First look at the date. Was it a coincidence that Steve Quayle’s financial request for Doug Hagmann’s “ministry” happened one-day (June 5, 2013) after I reported their NSA targeting allegation they asked me to report (June 4, 2013)?

Why was it looking more and more like I was set up?

I did not know about Steve Quayle’s fundraiser. Judi McLeod had told me about it after Steve Quayle posted this on his website ten days after (June 14, 2013) I was asked to report Hagmann’s NSA targeting allegation.

Review: Below is the text

EMERGENCY PRAYER REQUEST FOR DOUG HAGMANNN-LIFE IS IN SEVERE DANGER

DOUG WAS ALMOST KILLED THIS MORNING UNDER THE GOON SQUAD–HE NEEDS DIVINE INTERVENTION AND PROTECTION IMMEDIATELY AND PRAY FOR GODS SUPERNATURAL DELIVERANCE IN HIS LIFE-I CAN NOT TELL YOU HOW IMPORTANT YOUR PRAYERS ARE AT THIS TIME-W-AND ROSEBUD HEADS UP!
Jun 14, 2013

What the… ? What had Judi McLeod gotten me into with these self-professed Christian truth-tellers in the alternative media? Apparently Quayle’s “emergency prayer request” was really over a family problem. Worried about Canada Free Press’ credibility, this is when McLeod first told me about her serious credibility issues she had with Hagmann documented in my NSA correction piece.

Let’s wrap this up

Since I wrote my NSA correction article, I’ve heard from Hagmann’s Intelligence Insider, “W,” Wayne Willott via email a few times. Usually it’s the typical emails he “bcc’s” not just to me but other people like Doug Hagmann with links to articles. Hagmann uses them for his radio shows.

Ironically, in one of his emails to me, he pointed out an error—not in my NSA correction piece, but in my latest Benghazi story which I corrected as you can see here. Scroll to the end.

I’ve had zero contact from Judi McLeod for her role in this for over a year.

Same goes for Doug Hagmann.

Look-a reader sent me this:

Doug Hagmann breaks his silence on his NSA targeting allegation

Now that you’ve seen some more of the evidence in this report and in my initial NSA correction story, let’s compare what Doug Hagmann has done to get evidence of his NSA allegation with Sharyl Attkisson. He spoke about Attkisson on his November 11, 2014 radio broadcast in conjunction with his NSA allegation and journalists being intimidated and targeted (video below).

As I previously mentioned, Attkisson wrote a book, Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation, and Harassment in Obama’s Washington. Her book includes the measurable steps she took to obtain actionable evidence. Computer forensics, Skype, the works.

That’s what investigative journalists and anyone should do if they have been targeted by the government.

Now listen to Doug Hagmann talk about his NSA targeting allegation —over a year after it allegedly happened in the summer of 2014.

Update: Transcription added. Full broadcast: Thursday July 10, 2014, The Hagmann and Hagmann Report. Start listening at 117:40.

Joe Hagmann: Yeah, we are going to take a top of the hour break—

Doug Hagmann: Wait, wait, wait! A message from National Security Agency Subject Number 70900. Folks, feel free— because July, in fact. I meant to bring this up yesterday.

It was exactly one year ago yesterday that I published an article called, “A Message from National Security Agency Subject 70900,” that’s MY number at the NSA, that’s MY case number, case file number. And if you recall, I had an incident happen where the phone call, when I was on the phone with a journalist, a very well known person –

Joe Hagmann: A covered or what do they call it? A cover journalist or a real journalist or a basement blogger?

Doug Hagmann: Ah, not a basement blogger. Somebody—you would, somebody whose name if I would state the name would certainly— people would know the name. But none the less, when I went to hang up the phone, there was a ring back. You know how you can hang up the phone and you can get a ring-back, I thought it was a ring-back from the call, and I looked down and I saw the caller id with NSA Utah Data Collection Center caller id on the, on my office phone. I could not believe what I saw and of course. You know, that went away quickly. But I did a year ago yesterday I reported about that so. You can feel free to refer to me as NSA file number or NSA case number 70900. Seventy nine hundred so.

Again, my NSA FOIA case #70900 does not prove he was targeted by the NSA to find his sources—one of whom since then outted himself—“W”—Wayne Willott. Anybody can get a NSA FOIA number.

Now listen to Doug Hagmann on his November 11, 2014 radio show–since I corrected his false NSA allegation

Transcription of clip (added May 2015)

Doug Hagmann: Ultimately who ordered the Federal Agents to go after Miss Attkinsson? We will be working to have Ms. Attkisson come on our program. We know that she does media shows and we, I, would like to talk to her. Now, certainly if it was Obama, and that is grounds for impeachment, according to Michael Synder, the fact of the matter is, I can tell you this from experience you will not find, you will not find, anything that will be attributed to, directly to Obama, at least in my view, that’s my personal opinion. I’ve been doing this long enough to know how the game works.

Meanwhile others, and I am going to put this in here right now. Okay, remember I said about proprietary to a government agency? I said this, “after an exhaustive examination of one her computers found that it had been hacked by a sophisticated entity that used non commercial non attributable spyware that is proprietary to government agency in the CIA, FBI, DIA or NSA.”

Folks, I am going to make this one statement and this one statement only. And I am going to say it right now. Last year, I had, I had, I was the subject of an NSA targeting type of an event, an harassment, I filed a – I actually swore out an affidavit. I swore to it under oath before a notary, and in fact before a municipal court judge outlining exactly what happened to me in my office on a certain date 2013 where the NSA had shown up on my telephone. In other words, subsequent to a conversation with an investigative reporter [Steve Quayle is now an investigative journalist? Since when?], and I’m not going to name that investigative reporter, the NSA, Utah Data center showed up on my caller id.

I had a ringback from that showing that and of course, you know. Look. I got a message as well that, that essentially that was directed I suspect to, or intended for someone else.

There is a lot of crap, a lot of BS being attempted right now about my situation. And quite frankly it, it’s almost like a serial stalking situation by a person is who I believe personally I believe is mentally unstable and that is all I’m going to say, except to say folks, believe only half of what you read er, half of what you read on the internet, perhaps maybe none of it.

Joe Hagmann: Or only half.

Doug Hagmann: Ha, but that’s all I’m going to say about that. Let’s continue with Ms. Attikisson. I can relate to this. Let’s continue with Michael Synder’s article.

Entire BlogTalkRadio broadcast. Start listening around 24 minutes.

Apparently Doug Hagmann’s evidence is a sworn affidavit. He claimed he took an oath under the penalty of perjury before a notary and a municipal judge.

Notice how Doug Hagmann did not say anything he has done (or is doing) to obtain evidence either. Since he is apparently a 30+ year private investigator, a self described investigative journalist and a Christian truth-teller, this appears to be highly unusual.

Not even an update from his Congressman? What about the FISA courts? Nothing? Zip.

FYI: Typically people with degrees in medicine or psychiatry, who have conducted series of psychological tests on a person in a clinical setting, are qualified to access a person’s mental stability. These doctors who hold such qualifications also examine the Diagnostic & Statistical Manual for mental Disorders, Fifth Edition. Anyone who does otherwise is practicing medicine without a license.

To make an accusation against one’s character without factual evidence is “slander.”

Furthermore, what has “award winning journalist,” McLeod done–who asked me to report Hagmann/Wayne’s NSA targeting allegation, considering this would affect Canada Free Press as well? Apparently nothing either. Even CBS (oh my, the mainstream press) had a computer forensic analysis done on Sharyl Attkisson’s computer.

Now WATCH Sharyl Attkisson talk about the steps she took to obtain forensic evidence when she was targeted in this interview with MSNBC. No one can claim that this was a sympathetic interview.

In well over a year, to my knowledge, there has been no word or updates from Hagmann or McLeod on any of this:

-The Congressmen and representatives Hagmann was supposedly contacting.
-The telephone company investigation Hagmann was supposedly doing.
-The FISA courts
-Hagmann and Quayle did not file FOIAs. Had they, they would have had updates for his listeners and readers a long time ago.
-Hagmann has not produced the affidavit that was allegedly sworn under oath before a notary and a municipal judge. Sworn affidavits are actionable.

What we do know:
-Hagmann (with McLeod’s blessing) threatened me with legal action for trying to obtain actionable evidence of his NSA targeting allegation and rescinded his FOIA permission.
-Hagmann and Quayle can’t get their NSA targeting allegation stories straight.
– Quayle attacked me.
-Hagmann cited my NSA FOIA case #70900 as proof. It does not confirm he was targeted by the NSA.
-Hagmann’s Insider Intelligence source,”W,” Wayne Willott publicly outted himself on Hagmann’s radio show and elsewhere after Hagmann threatened me.
-Judi McLeod still publishes Hagmann

Review:

Making a false allegation is a serious offense. Innocent people get hurt.

Must listen: In this broadcast dated 6-13-2013 Hagmann goes into great detail again on his NSA targeting allegation shortly after he claimed it happened.

Start listening around the 9:00 minute mark on BlogTalkRadio. Hagmann emphatically claimed that the NSA had active surveillance on his telephone-an information file had been created on him. He also claimed that someone in the Obama administration either had to go to a FISA court and convince a judge that he was a threat to the United States or somebody in the administration circumvented the legal system. If it was the former, Hagmann claimed that person would need the approval not far from “presidential approval”–at least at the level of Attorney General Eric Holder. Keep listening. There is much more.

As always, if anyone sees something that needs to be corrected in my reporting, please let me know. I have no problem making corrections. Thanks.

Again, my deepest apologies if anyone has been hurt by this.

Thank you for your valuable time.

Update November 20: So what did these Christian truth tellers do when they apparently learned about my second documented report? Told the truth and apologized? Nope. Blame hell’s messengers, it’s fundraising time!

As an astute reader noted, “He’s begging for money for himself. No shame.”

While I am not a bible expert, profess to be a ministry, and we all need to pay our bills (including me), I do know that using God as a fund raising tool is not pleasing to the Lord. Some would say that is blasphemous. It is a blessing to be able to give—if the person wants to but no one should be shamed into it.

God does not send out beggars or scare people into buying stuff.

Please share this article. Let others see the evidence. Too many people have already been hurt and taken advantage of. I’ve also added images I should have included in the original report. Thank you.

FYI: Look Judicial Watch did it again thanks to FOIA. DOJ Press Aide Talked About Stopping ‘Out of Control’ Attkisson in Email. It is worth mentioning that I know the status of the FOIAs I filed when Hagmann threatened me with legal action …

Related: There is a disturbing pattern to Hagmann and Quayle’s threatening and intimidating behavior towards people who dare to speak the truth. Read Steve Quayle: God Complex and Veiled Threats by Michael Erevna.

Update January 5, 2015: FOIA works.
Sharyl Attkisson sues administration over computer hacking
“Attkisson learned through a Freedom of Information request that the FBI opened an investigation of the hacking case in May 2013, but says the bureau never interviewed her or even notified her of the probe.”

As Attkisson’s case proves, you can get actionable documentation back from FOIA.

When Hagmann threatened me with legal action, I had also filed a FOIA with the FBI … not all FOIA offices are backed up.

It is also worth pointing out here how Steve Quayle tried to defame me by essentially saying that I was an ignorant idiot and a fool for thinking I would get anything actionable back from FOIA. Care to comment or apologize, Steve?

Now you know why Hagmann threatened me with legal action and why McLeod, and Quayle protect and continue to protect him–it looks like they were protecting themselves as well.

January 5, 2015 Update #2: I have received emails from people who have told me that they are being ignored, censored and/or blocked when they try to ask any of the people involved in Hagmann’s false NSA allegation about my correction articles.

Please know. You are not alone.

People are also being censored when they try to leave comments about it on other websites as well. Anyone in the so-called “alternative/truther” media who is blocking or censoring you is dishonest and sanctions threats and false allegations. You either tell the truth all of the time or you don’t.

The masks are coming off. There is nothing truthful about that kind of conduct.

Remember with this crew of self described Christian truth-tellers/journalists/private investigators/intelligence insiders, it is only bad when the Obama administration intimidates or threatens journalists but when they do it –it is okay.

It is also only bad when the Obama administration tries to silence and censor people but when they do it–it is okay.

Got it?

It’s been almost three months since I first corrected Hagmann’s NSA allegation. On my end, no one has apologized to me or tried to make amends. No one has provided me with proof that contradicts anything I have reported and required a retraction.

No one has provided me with a statement I would publish in full explaining their “side of the story.”

No one has hit me with a slander or defamation suit either. If that happened, I’d just report it and have a field day in discovery.

Hagmann has still not produced his alleged sworn affidavit. He claimed he took an oath under the penalty of perjury before a notary and a municipal judge.

And to the best of my knowledge, no one has apologized and corrected themselves with their respective audiences either. There are no words.

Review

Excuse me, talk about a shocking, alarming and deliberate invasion of privacy. Why on earth would a so-called Christian truth-telling radio show in the alternative media be gathering and collecting your personal information, which also gives them access to your friends and family’s information just to listen to their radio show?

While condemning the NSA for spying on you, why does the Hagmann and Hagmann Report want real-time access to your private life via this app? Again, who is spying on you now?

Nobody needs this amount of information and access. Nobody. The hypocrisy is staggering, chilling. The H&H Report app makes the IRS and NSA look tame.

A question that must be asked and answered is what are Doug and Joe Hagmann doing with your personal information?

Who are they sharing it with?

It is not just me who noticed this shocking, personally violating hypocrisy. Some savvy listeners noticed something is not right here too. Indeed. One reviewer quickly, wisely uninstalled the app, so the Hagmanns and crew can’t play dumb.

Months ago that person wrote this: “My camera, mic, texts & location…really?! You guys have a large conspiratorial following and you need my location, contacts, text messages, microphone and camera…just to listen to your show.. Uninstalling now. Never again. Sure I’ll just TRUST you not bug or track me..with permissions you don’t need. I just wanted to hear your show… Makes me question your intent…keep it simple. Update: Since posting your have added even more requirements.. 10/24..”

Another wrote this: “Too many permissions, too many ads. Sorry but have you actually tried to use your own app? It’s almost impossible. And all those permissions! For a show about NWO and spy tech you seem really interested in my personal info.”

I predict if Doug Hagmann is called out on this outrageous data collection and invasion of privacy, he will play dumb and claim he is not tech savvy. Don’t buy it. This is HIS show app, an app his son approved and praised as well. Doug Hagmann claims he is a 30-year private investigator who has specialized in surveillance including gas lighting.

These legitimate reviewer concerns have been posted for months (I have screen shots if they are scrubbed).

Why do so-called Christian truth-teller media personalities in the alternative press want your personal information and access to your private lives? Why?

Why does the Hagmann and Hagmann Report want real-time access to your phones, hard-drives, cameras, audio etc? Why?

Paypal asks for much less of your personal information to transfer funds to and from financial institutions. Much less.

When you hit power on a radio nobody needs your private information or access to your life. Nobody.

Remember if the NSA collects data on you it is bad, but when the Hagmann and Hagmann Report app invades your privacy, collects your personal information and gets access to your life, it is good.

You have been warned.

The Hagmann and Hagmann Report is broadcast on BlogTalkRadio. BlogTalkRadio, “the largest social radio network in the world,” was originally founded by Alan Levy and Bob Charish in August 2006. Levy is also the President and CEO of Cinchcast where Charish is Cinchcast’s co-founder and Chief Operating Officer.

A purported Christian radio “ministry,” radio “ministry,” The Hagmann and Hagmann Report is also is simulcast on the Christian’s United Broadcasting Network. Apparently it is also carried on other stations not just in the US, but internationally.

Note: This update has been expanded.

Update: See: Poison Fruits: “Christian” alternative media stars Steve Quayle and Doug Hagmann’s SWAT allegation also fake.
