You can read it for yourself. It’s easy to understand and very straightforward. To paraphrase some dialogue of a Seinfeld episode, however, it’s an indictment about nothing. Perhaps that characterization is too charitable as the “Statement of Facts” (first embedded document below) lacks a very important piece of information upon which the entire indictment – all 34 counts – is predicated. The Manhattan District Attorney, Alvin Bragg, failed to even meet the “Burden of Production” (that any first-year law student should know – more information here) which is required to file any charges – in New York or elsewhere.

Note that paragraph #2, in its entirety, states:

From August 2015 to December 2017, the Defendant orchestrated a scheme with others to influence the 2016 presidential election by identifying and purchasing negative information about him to suppress its publication and benefit the Defendant’s electoral prospects. In order to execute the unlawful scheme, the participants violated election laws and made and caused false entries in the business records of various entities in New York. The participants also took steps that mischaracterized, for tax purposes, the true nature of the payments made in furtherance of the scheme.

Source: Statement of Facts

First, note that in this paragraph and throughout the entire document, there is no citation of the New York State law that was allegedly broken. Although there is a vague reference to the violation of campaign finance laws upon which the entirety of the case is based, there is no such law as it relates to the facts outlined in the indictment. Stated differently, the courts have already ruled that directing campaign funds (or other funds) as “his money” is not illegal. Distasteful, arguably yes, but not illegal.

The most cited example of this is the case of John Edwards. In 2011, a grand jury criminally charged presidential candidate John Edwards for making hush money payments made to his mistress, John Edwards faced up to 30 years in prison and $1.5 million in fines. You can read about the Edwards case here.

Secondly, note the dates of alleged offenses as specified in the indictment below. Each date of alleged defense was during the period when Trump was president. This is critically important as President Trump had fully divested himself from all business matters related to the entire Trump business organization. Additionally, violating New York as referenced in the indictment and statement of facts – Penal Law §175.10 (LINK) – is only a felony ONLY if said violation is committed in furtherance of another felony. The charging document fails to cite the specific law that was violated upon which the entire indictment is based.

 

Without getting too far into the weeds, contact with an attorney familiar with this New York statute (Penal Law §175.10) suggests that there are two parts to this statute: (1) Intent to defraud, and, (2) Intent to commit another crime or to aid or conceal the commission of that crime. It was his legal opinion that Bragg took liberties with the second part of this statute, suggesting that President Trump “aided” others unknown or unnamed, except for (possibly) Michael Cohen, thus “creating” felonies based on non-existent evidence.

Therefore, this is a misapplication of New York State law at best, and a case of seditious conspiracy to interfere with the 2024 presidential election, not by President Trump, but by Alvin Bragg and those behind him, at worst.

It almost seems like a pattern. Whether the allegation of criminal activity involved the Capitol protests on January 6, 2021, the FISA applications related to Russia, Russia… Russia, or the current political persecution of President Trump by a Soros-funded DA whose star witness is a convicted perjurer, there are Brady violations aplenty. Exculpatory evidence, the third rail of the Communist infiltrators in all of government, appears to be lost, stolen, forgotten, or simply omitted to maintain a narrow and specific narrative.

Today’s grand jury session was canceled, perhaps due to the damning testimony of Robert Costello, the former attorney for Michael Cohen. Or, if you watch MSNBC or any other Mockingbird network, it’s anything but that because, well, that can’t be it.

RELATED: Truth Smacks Manhattan DA in the Face, Tanking His Case. Will It Matter?

During his testimony on Monday, Costello made certain the grand jury knew that District Attorney Alvin Bragg had withheld several hundred pages of documents from them. Now, some legal experts and analysts are calling for an investigation of Bragg – and potential disbarment if he is found to be in violation of the Brady rule.

Considering that Bragg’s office unilaterally decided to reclassify at least 50 felonies as misdemeanors, it couldn’t happen to a more qualified district attorney. -Doug Hagmann

By Douglas J. Hagmann

 remember it well. My first contact with my DHS “whistleblower” source was a middle-of-the-night conversation on May 25, 2012, some five-and-a-half years ago and well documented on this site and other sites, including Canada Free Press.

On that occasion, this source stated that “DHS is actively preparing for massive social unrest inside the United States. He then corrected himself, stating that ‘a civil war’ is the more appropriate term. Certain elements of the government are not only expecting and preparing for it, they are actually facilitating it.”

That was several months before the re-election of Barack Hussein Obama, the man of questionable origins, dubious bona-fides and an inherent, visceral hatred for everything that made America a once-great nation. Obama had to win re-election to complete his task of destroying our Representative Republic. He was handily re-elected without much viable opposition, giving him additional time to complete his duties as the front man for his Globalist puppet masters.

As my insider source informed me in the many additional contacts we had, “plans, tactics and timetables change, but the objectives of these Globalists don’t.”

Now, let’s fast forward to the present. In an upset the Globalists did not see coming, President Donald J. Trump was elected by the people of America in a fair and free election. This, however, was not supposed to happen. After her coronation, Hillary Clinton was supposed to continue the unfinished tasks of Obama, transforming the U.S. into a fully Communist society that would better integrate with a Global collective. Bernie Sanders, a socialist, was simply not radical enough for the Globalist puppet masters of the Progressive base, which is really a Communist platform.

In the wake of the loss, the Communist operatives immediately went to work to cast doubt on the legitimacy of our elections. Much like the signature Benghazi video, the Russian-Collusion narrative was birthed out of desperation and necessity. It relentlessly continues today as the Shadow Government is using the mechanisms of our institutions in the form of an “Independent” Counsel to further delegitimize our President and his office. The intended result here is to provoke a Constitutional crisis that will send our nation into a deliberate state of chaos.

Meanwhile, the highly active Shadow Government, maligned as a conspiracy theory by the very people who comprise this agenda and their unwitting dupes, is in overdrive to compensate for the interruption of their agenda. Barry Soetoro, better known as Barack Hussein Obama II, is operational from his base on Embassy Row to tend to the business of taking America down from within.

In fact, one might assert that he has more latitude out of office and away from oversight. Consider the situation of Dr. Sebastian Gorka who recently departed from the inner circle of the West Wing. Undoubtedly, he will be engaged in a form of political trench warfare on behalf of the Conservative Right that might otherwise be impossible.

Globalist Task List

Now recall the warnings from my previous reports, based on the information given to me from my insider source. Also remember that the plans, tactics, strategies of the Globalist might change, but the objectives remain the same. The Globalist puppet masters want to tear America down. All of it. Their hatred for American is unmatched, as is their desperation now that Donald Trump is in office.

The Globalist task list adheres to a five-step program, which is essentially the formula used by George Soros to foment coups and uprisings across the globe:

  1. Form a Shadow Government;
  2. Take complete control of the media, including and especially the independent media;
  3. Destabilize the State;
  4. Provoke an Election Crisis;
  5. Assume Control of the Reins of Power.

Note here that George Soros, in his own words, has publicly lamented on America existing as a roadblock to a Communist collective:

The main problem to a ‘stable and just world order’ is the United States.” –George SorosThe Age of Fallibility.


The Shadow Government has existed inside the United States since 1947-48, or since the inception of the Central Intelligence Agency. It has undergone various iterations and refinements, and now comprise, as part of the Shadow Government – a subsection known as the Deep State. The tools available to the Shadow government are many, and now involve the use of the many technologies that did not exist even a decade ago.

Note: Kevin Shipp, a former CIA officer, will be our guest on The Hagmann Report tomorrow, Friday, September 1, 2017 to give his presentation on the Shadow Government based on his first-hand knowledge.

One can see how far along the Shadow Government is in their task of destroying America. Nonetheless, they have an enemy in Donald Trump, who is a formidable speedbump on the road to complete tyranny. While they continue to work on step 4 via Robert Mueller and the Republican establishment, there is a level of organization and flow of money being poured into step 3 unlike anything ever before seen.

Orchestrating the Chaos

Starting with “protest” marches concurrent with the inauguration of Donald Trump, the Communist resistance to a free Republic is being refined from the top down, populated from the bottom up, and fueled from the inside out. Does this sound familiar? It should, as it is from the mouth of Van Jones, a close confidante of Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton who was briefly at the center of controversy as Obama was about to give him a West Wing position. Today, Jones is a political activist and involved in numerous “Progressive” political initiatives.

According to most recent information from my insider source within the beltway, combined with infiltration and investigation of various “activist” groups in the U.S. by investigators involved with my organization, the protest marches are being permitted to grow into an armed militant movement that will cause “flashpoints” of domestic unrest and armed conflict across the U.S.

Obama’s “fundamental transformation,” although momentarily interrupted by the victory of Donald Trump, will be facilitated by an armed resistance aided by holdovers inside government loyal to Obama, Clinton and the Globalist cause. They have had more than a decade of infiltration under Obama and the globalists, and intend to stay as long as possible. Meanwhile, they are arming for war to be conducted in the streets of America.

Red Guards – Austin

Groups including but not limited to Antifa, RevComm, and now Red Guards (Austin) are collecting weapons and preparing for an all-out assault under the pretext of fighting the Nazi oppression that they purport that Donald Trump and his supporters espouse. They are turning in their rocks and bottles for bullets and guns, and are receiving training from war veterans sympathetic to their cause.

One might laugh at the thought of the thuggish snowflakes, known by their obtuse behavior, being able to cause any such violence, at least effectively. Alone and without top-down coordination, perhaps a chuckle might be warranted. However, their efforts are being supplemented by powers inside the Shadow Government, a force multiplier that we mock or ignore at our peril.

As I discussed during my radio show today, war is coming to our streets as I warned over five years ago.

Prepare. Pray.

By Douglas J. Hagmann

On February 20, 2003, a deadly fire caused by pyrotechnics resulted in the deaths of 100 people and the injuries of 230 others at the Station nightclub in West Warwick, Rhode Island. According to official investigative accounts, it took less than six minutes for the nightclub to be fully engulfed in flames and destroyed. In just over five minutes, the lives of many people were changed forever, and no one inside the club saw it coming until it was too late.

At present, the United States of America is metaphorically comparable to that nightclub, and the citizens of the U.S. as its patrons. Our elected officials (past and present), the Federal Reserve, and the Wall Street elite are the individuals who lit the fuse. Unlike the individual who lit the pyrotechnic display at the nightclub, however, those involved in destroying our national economy are arsonists who are intentionally burning our country to the ground. They have no allegiance to the U.S., her citizens, or anything beyond their collective lust for a global economy.

Others are intentionally blocking some of the exits. Unfortunately, too few people understand what is taking place, or they have become transfixed by the unchecked flames of the wayward pyrotechnics of the international bankers. You are being looted, right now, as you read this.

Some call it “doom porn”

With the Dow recently hitting a new record high, I will undoubtedly be accused of authoring “doom porn,” especially by those who follow the Keynesian model of economics that, among other factors, brought us to this very point in our economic history. After all, look around; people are still buying big ticket items, taking vacations, and living a relatively normal life, and are seemingly unscathed by our current debt crisis.

I can hear it now… “What crisis?” We are experiencing our eighth longest “bull market” since 1928, thanks to the efforts of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, among others. But it is nothing more than a Ponzi scheme and you, dear reader, are the unwitting victim.

Much like our current financial situation, there were people inside the nightclub that initially believed that the fire that consumed the venue was a controlled part of the act. Others knew there was a problem and headed for the exits. Some escaped unharmed, some were injured, while others perished. Some were trampled or crushed to death in their race to the exits. So too will it be in the United States.

Controlled demise

Many believe that what they are seeing with regard to our economy and the health of our dollar is under control, and they are indeed correct.  The difference, however, is that the people in charge of the pyrotechnics of our economy and our nation are arsonists. They do not have the best interests of the citizens of the U.S. in mind. They are driven by their own greed, by the promise of a seat at the global table of a new international currency, and by the agenda of the international banking cabal.

Everyone must understand that, like a Ponzi scheme, the current system is being designed to collapse. The central bankers and the politicians who are in bed with the investment firms have defiled capitalism and have created a Fascist state right in front of us.

If you don’t believe that we have been played for suckers, not just in the U.S. but on a global scale, just think about the political appointments of Mario Draghi, Italy’s prime minister, Mario Monti, and the former Greek prime minister Lucas Papademos. What did each have in common? Goldman Sachs.

What about our outgoing Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner? Not only did Geithner work for Kissinger and Associates, he served under Treasury Secretaries Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers, the latter having served as the Chief Economist for the World Bank. Summers also played a key role in lobbying Congress to repeal the Glass Steagall Act, which armed the arsonists with the matches.

Additionally, Timothy Geithner’s father, Peter Geithner, just happened to work with Barack Hussein Obama’s mother at the Ford Foundation, where he headed the foundation’s Asia Program. Small world. Or perhaps something more nefarious? To quote Sherlock Holmes from The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier,  “But is it coincidence? Are there not subtle forces at work of which we know little?”

They are intentionally setting up the American economy to fail. The proof is there for all to see if one simply looks. It’s a fatal combination of the Cloward-Piven strategy, an enhanced version of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “New Deal,” and Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society,”  with each feeding off the others in order to obliterate the middle class. The agenda is to convert a nation of citizens into subjects, except on a global scale.

You might think that we’ve heard all of this before, and you have. So what’s different this time?

Approaching critical mass

Recently, billionaires Warren Buffet, John Paulson, and (of course) George Soros have sold massive volumes of U.S. stocks and equity positions. Could it be that they know something that the average, hard-working American doesn’t? To anyone paying close attention, I believe that question answers itself. They have successfully found the exits and left the nightclub well ahead of anyone else.

There is a larger agenda, however, that no one seems to want to bring up or discuss. It’s the agenda that was created a century ago with the creation of a central bank, known as the Federal Reserve. It’s the ultimate government-sanctioned Ponzi scheme that creates money out of nothing, something that would result in a prison sentence for anyone who is reading this.

The Federal Reserve (by means of its very existence, and its actions with complicit political leaders) has managed to debase and devalue our currency, which decreases our buying power. They have done so without oversight or accountability. And it’s only going to get worse until it reaches critical mass. And it will. When it does, there will be casualties, pain, and unimaginable suffering by those victimized by the unbridled lust of the arsonists.

Black Swan event

When the fire engulfs our nation, it will be undoubtedly heralded as a “Black Swan” event, or one unseen except by the benefit of 20-20 hindsight. This, of course, will be a lie. The hand-wringing by the elected officials, and the crocodile tears shed by the enlightened economists must be seen for what they are – if they can be seen from their remote villas or their underground safe-houses. They must be held accountable for their treachery, their treasonous activities.

The arsonists know exactly what they are doing, and are waiting for the right moment to do it. They are looting us first, robbing from us as much wealth they can before pulling up the stakes. In addition to selling each of us into financial slavery, they have sold our children and grandchildren into bondage as well. And so far, we have let them. Most have fallen for their deceptions and lies, either by their blind adherence to their own normalcy bias, or by blissful ignorance.

Whatever the trigger event might be, and whenever it happens, there will be a rush to the exits. By then, it will be too late.

For those who dare to demand any accountability of those who sold us out (the treasonous bankers, politicians, and economist carnival barkers), a wall of para-militarized troops will be waiting, with their shiny new MRAP (mine resistant, ambush protected, armored vehicle), and their own assault weapons. But only after the average, law-abiding citizens of the last bastion of freedom (the United States) have been effectively disarmed.

The current headlines that describe the Obama administration’s full frontal assault against our Judeo-Christian values and, specifically, the Catholic church in America through mandatory birth control policies reveal a much larger and more disturbing agenda that is being missed or deliberately omitted by the corporate media.

Investigation into what has been happening behind the scenes exposes alarming facts that will affect everyone in America, regardless of their faith.

Despite the administration’s claims and the sound bites from lawmakers, the current battle is not about providing Americans with affordable health care and never was. By following the money trail and influence behind the actions of this administration, it is clear that the current rift is a byproduct of final stages of implementing Marxist-Leninist socialism in America.

Motive: the Socialist agenda

Since his first day in office, Obama has been leading the U.S. on a direct path to socialism. He has nationalized portions of the banking industry, taken over parts of the automobile industry. He is now engaged in socializing our healthcare industry, which encompasses about twenty percent of our national economy. Replacing capitalism with socialism requires control over that segment of our national economy.

Obama and the globalist powers behind him know history. They understand that the most formidable obstacle to socialism in the former USSR was religion and the church. True socialism cannot coexist with Judeo-Christian principles, as socialism denies the fundamental tenet of religious faith that God created man and man needs God.

Means: Divide and conquer

To neutralize and then eliminate the obstacle of the church, Obama and his agents are using the divide and conquer strategy. Within the last decade, there has been a skillfully orchestrated approach to dividing the Catholic Church through the formation and funding “Catholic” organizations that adhere to and promote the socialist agenda. Two of the larger organizations, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United, both promote “social justice” and the tenets of socialism.

Research has documented that both organizations have received funding, in part, by George Soros through his Open Society Institute (OSI). Throughout the last decade, it was discovered that Soros’ OSI group gave Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good $150,000 (2005 and 2006).  Investigation found that John Podesta, founder of the Center for American Progress (CAP), which is funded in part by George Soros and tightly connected to both Obama and the Clintons, serves on their advisory council among other progressive activists. A review of 501(c)3 documents also shows a financial connection between Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Catholics United.

By promoting the progressive agendas of these and similar organizations, Obama is successfully creating a division within the Catholic church in an attempt to cause chaos from within. Unless exposed, it just might work.

Opportunity: the Affordable Health Care Act

The last remaining obstacle in the U.S. to implementing a full socialist agenda in the U.S. is the church. In Obama’s world and those behind him, this “obstacle” must be removed for his agenda to be successful. They were readily provided the vehicle to accomplish this in full view of every American through the Affordable Care Act.
