Tonight on The Hagmann Report…
7:30pm Welcome return guest Alicia Powe, courtesy of World Net Daily. The DNC should be squirming in their war room right now figuring out how they are going to “clown car” investigative journalists like Alicia with fake news, because her work at WND continues to blast a big bright beam of real journalism into the alleys and caverns of the deep state.
Alicia Powe is an investigative reporter with World Net Daily. She has written for numerous outlets, including Human Events, Media Research Center, Townhall, Daily Surge and YoungCons.
She worked in the War Room of the Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee and served as a White House Intern during the George W. Bush administration. Alicia holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Political Science from John Jay College of Criminal Justice. She is a New York, NY native and currently resides in the Washington, D.C. area.

8:00pm Welcome Hagmann Report favorite and one of the true pioneers of preparedness minded living, bestselling author, Mr James Wesley Rawles.
Mr Rawles is the author of numerous books that many of us (myself included) attribute to our initial awakening to the realities of how our incredibly corrupt world works. For those of you who have not read the Patriots Series, I respectfully submit that it is a must-read for all who feel that it is past time to prepare for difficult eventualities.
The author of many fine faction novels as well as non fiction DIY reference books, one of the strongest attributes about the ongoing work of James W Rawles is that his premiere site www.survivalblog.com is completely free and anyone who invests the time to peruse the thousands of articles archived on the site will be well on their way to enjoying the peace of mind that comes with doing your due diligence and preparing yourself and your family for troubling times ahead.
SENIOR EDITOR: JAMES WESLEY, RAWLES (JWR)
I’m a survivalist author and lecturer. I’m the founder and editor of SurvivalBlog.com. I’m a former U.S. Army intelligence officer, and now work as a full-time blogger and freelance writer. This blog reflects my interests. I’ve been an enthusiastic survivalist since my teenage years. I grew up in the Bomb Shelter era, and that mind set just never wore off.
I have authored several best selling nonfiction and fiction survivalists books. My expertise is primarily in retreat security, food storage, firearms, communications, first aid, and off-grid power systems. I have a B.A. degree from San Jose State University with minor degrees in military science, history, and military history.
I served as a U.S. Army Intelligence Corps officer and held a Top Secret security clearance with SCI access. I attended the Army NBC defense officer’s course, as well as Northern Warfare School at Fort Greeley, Alaska. Before resigning my commission as a Captain, I worked numerous live intelligence gathering and analysis missions overseas the tactical and strategic levels.
SurvivalBlog has more than 320,000 unique visitors per week, and it is considered the Internet’s premier source of information on family preparedness and survival topics.
I am of primarily English ancestry, a Christian, and hold to Reformed doctrine. I am saved by God’s Grace and Christ’s blood, and not ashamed to say so!
Politically, I am a conservative/Constitutionalist libertarian. These outlooks have shaped my views on preparedness.
9:00pm Return guest, former USN SEAL and prolific writer, Matt Bracken.
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 writes the following:
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.
As always, on behalf of Team Hagmann, we thank you for your continued support, trust in us and most importantly, your prayers, as we navigate these crazy days together. Saddle for battle. The Hagmann Report is available every Monday through Friday at 7:00pm EST on three live platforms.
