His name is Doug. Douglas J. Hagmann. That’s the name his Mama entered on his American birth certificate. That’s the name that will someday go on his gravestone.
More than half a million readers learned Doug Hagmann’s name last Friday after he wrote a column trying to warn Americans, “It’s about to get very ugly” and millions more have read his Insider Reports published on Canada Free Press (CFP).
Detractors will swim in like sharks begging to differ, but Hagmann was among the first, if not the first to spread the truth about Benghazi; that four courageous Americans lost their lives most tragically there not because of an anti-Muslim video but because the American administration they worked for was running guns into Syria through Turkey.
Hagmann’s growing appeal to mega readers comes from the 30-plus years he has under his belt working in the field as a seasoned private investigator and the contacts with law-and-order types made and still being made during a career in which he is still active. People thirsting for the truth in government-issued propaganda in the confusing White Noise of the day are more likely to believe someone with that kind of track record in hard core investigation.
Add to Hagmann’s own ability that his articles for the past eight years have been posted on a private, independent news site with a reputation of credibility; that he now has a popular, three-hour weeknight and Sunday Internet radio show, the Hagmann-Hagmann Report with his son Joe, and you can see Hagmann’s plight more clearly.
The powers that be in the scandal-ridden government are on an unholy tear to suppress and silence anyone not swallowing the Marxist line, including most shamefully, patriotic, elderly, law-abiding citizens. The IRS that can make or break you, is making and breaking you. Rather than being pushed back from power, their bureaucrats will go on to administer Obama’s ominous health care—an IRS-run ObamaCare!
During the ongoing IRS scandal, Americans found out almost overnight that for almost the past 12 years, Big Brother has not just been watching them, but capturing every aspect of their private citizen lives. The Hollywood movie nightmares about someone watching you while you sleep, are now chilling real-life reality.
Hagmann’s “It’s about to get very ugly” piece preceded—by a single day—the ‘NSA is watching you’ revelations of former CIA operative/NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.
This is how Snowden described the dangers of massive NSA data mining of the civilian population:
“...even if you’re not doing anything wrong you’re being watched and recorded. And the storage capability of these systems increases every year consistently by orders of magnitude to where it’s getting to the point where you don’t have to have done anything wrong. You simply have to eventually fall under suspicion from somebody even by a wrong call. And then they can use this system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you’ve ever made, every friend you’ve ever discussed something with. And attack you on that basis to sort to derive suspicion from an innocent life and paint anyone in the context of a wrongdoer.” (Fox News, June 11, 2013).
That day may already have come for Doug Hagmann, who, because he’s a husband, father, and a proud American citizen, does not have the option of going on the lam.
Like many other reporters and whistleblowers Hagmann is much more a sitting duck than a moving target.
And he’s been told by a credible security source that an active investigation file has been opened against him by NSA.
Hagmann’s CFP colleague, Whistleblower author Marinka Peschmann has filled out a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to NSA on Hagmann.
While there are those will say “fat chance” of them ever getting back to her, rather than just sitting there waiting for the knock on the door from visiting feds, you’ve got to start somewhere.
As someone who has been a lifelong journalist, I know that the higher a person’s profile, the safer they usually are, and even though television and radio hosts are not exactly beating down his door to get him airtime, this is why I cling to the faint hope that anyone who picks up on Hagmann’s work will specifically identify him by name.
More worried about his family than himself, Hagmann, a God-fearing man, insists his faith will see him through.
If CFP readers continue to get his name out there the way they have been doing the last five days, Hagmann may be all the more safe from harm because of the high profile it affords him.
That’s why I find myself repeating to myself these turbulent days: “His name is Doug Hagmann”.
