Tonight on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report…
7:00pm-8:00pm EDT Join us this evening for news and analysis live from the Hagmann Studio. As the Russians deal with a horrific mass casualty event in St Petersburg and North Korea pops off in a manner that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson flatly stated will no longer be permissible under the new President Trump Administration, there is sufficient news to deal with that is of insomnia profundity.
We are excited to welcome debut guest Matt Bracken, prolific author, former USN SEAL and Infowars commentator.
Matt Bracken was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1957 and graduated from the University of Virginia in 1979 with a degree in Russian Studies.
He was commissioned in the US Navy through the NROTC program at UVA, and then graduated from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL training class 105 in Coronado California. He served on east coast UDT and SEAL teams, taking a Naval Special Warfare detachment to Beirut in 1983. Mr. Bracken left active duty after Lebanon, upon completion of his obligated military service, but he remained in an active reserve status through the remainder of the 1980s. Since then he has lived in Florida, Virginia, South Carolina, Guam and California.
In 1993 Mr. Bracken finished building a 48-foot steel sailing cutter of his own design, on which he has done extensive ocean cruising, including a solo voyage 9,000 miles from Panama to Guam and two Panama Canal transits.
Matt is a self-described freedomista who loves ocean sailing for the pure freedom it often permits. He is a constitutionalist who believes in the original intent of the founding fathers of our country. He lives with his family in North Florida and longs for the wide blue ocean.
Matt writes the following as a personal introduction to his work as a writer:
I began writing Enemies Foreign And Domestic in 2000, after too many years of watching our constitutional republic morphing into a police state. These novels, based upon nearly a half century of carefully studying historical patterns, are my attempt to shine a light forward in time. My goal is to warn my compatriots that we are inescapably losing our freedom, one ratchet-click at a time.
The Muslim terror attacks on 9-11 kicked the process into high gear. But instead of new laws targeting our actual enemies–radical Islamists bent on the global spread of their Sharia Law nightmare–the new police powers were aimed equally at all Americans. Projecting forward, the inevitable outcome will be to turn the United States into a dictatorship–the USSA, if you will.
The federal government, under the rubric of fighting a generalized terror threat, has for many years been providing local police departments with high-grade military weapons, equipment and training. The quid-pro-quo for this federal largesse is unquestioning local cooperation with federal law enforcement agencies, turning thousands of local police SWAT teams into force multipliers for burgeoning federal police power. In the name of fighting a murky and undefined “war on terror,” we have allowed the creation of a militarized national police force, something which our Founding Fathers explicitly warned us against and tried their best to prevent.
During the same period, our debt-based economy has nearly reached the bitter end of the fiat-currency road. It is only a matter of time until America experiences an economic crisis on the level of what is currently taking place in Greece, or even far worse. If and when federal entitlements, food stamp payments, housing allotments and all the rest are curtailed, I believe our major urban areas will explode in riots beyond anything America experienced in the 1960s. This will cause a breakdown in the national distribution of food, fuel and other commodities necessary to sustain life. At that point, some form of martial law will be put into effect, and our newly-militarized national police forces, along with active-duty military units, will be called upon to “restore order.” In so doing, the last nails will be hammered into the coffin containing our legacy of American freedom.
Obviously, I don’t desire to see this happen, but if such an outcome is preordained, I want at least to shine a beacon into the future. My goal is to provide my readers with some possible alternatives that will be less horrible than the worst-case scenarios, which otherwise shall be arrived at by chance and happenstance.
This is why I prefer to write what I call semi-dystopian novels, set in the near future. The post-apocalyptic genre has been beaten to death, and life in the rubble at a bare survival level provides few practical lessons. To me, the slide is more instructive than the post-collapse period. The often-repeated historical process of economic collapse and the loss of freedom is what interests me the most, and that is why I am driven to write these novels. I hope that you enjoy them, and that you gain some insights which might prove of value during the tumultuous years ahead.
8:30pm EDT Radio host and Senior Editor of Courtroom Watch, Eric Hughes Jones will make his debut appearance with premiere father/son investigative team, Douglas J Hagmann and Joe Hagmann to discuss and analyze the recent incarceration of previous Hagmann Report guest, citizen journalist, Gary Hunt.
Gary Hunt was arrested by US Federal Marshals at his home in California due to a bench warrant signed by Federal Judge (Oregon) Anna Brown.
The warrant is for a failure to appear in Judge Brown’s court to show cause for Mr Hunt’s refusal to redact the names of FBI confidential informants.
Under most circumstances, publishing the names of “C.I.’s” is a potentially life threatening move; particularly in drug cases where retribution against “snitches” is often dealt with swiftly and permanently.
However these FBI rats testified in a public hearing that they were paid $25,000 apiece in order that they perpetrate being members of the patriot group who occupied the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Burns, Oregon in late 2015-early 2016.
This occupation and subsequent “stand-off” resulted in the FBI/Oregon State Police MURDER of Robert “LaVoy” Finicum in January of 2016.
If journalists cannot cover public courtroom proceedings, without fear of tax payer funded incarceration, then we may as well fold NBC, CBS, ABC and CNN into one big MSNBC pile and rebrand it Pravda because freedom of the press is dead.
Eric Hughes Jones will spend two segments with Doug and Joe dealing the broader implications of the recent arrest of Gary Hunt. The bottom line is that the Federal Government of the United States has demonstrated time and again that they have zero problem with jailing journalists who dare tip the government subsidized, fake stream media narrative.
Here is a brief summary of what Mr Jone’s primary website Courtroom Watch is all about:
COURTROOMWATCH’s mission is to make the justice system more effective and responsive in handling cases and to create a more informed and involved public with an accountable, fair and transparent criminal justice system.
Court monitors are assigned to various types of hearings and have the opportunity to observe multiple
Volunteers obtain first-hand experience in the courtroom and become familiar with judges and prosecutors.
Volunteers are assigned to a variety of hearings including sentencing, jury trials, felony arraignment, DV court, omnibus hearings, probation violations and OFP hearings.
9:30pm EDT Doug and Joe will offer a final half hour of analysis as we attempt to make sense of the strange mess that our world has created.
