Doug Hagmann: Many Very Bad Things Are About to Happen


This article from Doug Hagmann of The Hagmann & Hagmann Report was originally posted on Homeland Security US.

On October 8, 2012, I wrote a column titled Lemmings… At the precipice of WWIII that connected the dots between the Arab Spring, Benghazi, Syria and Russia. My report was published ten months before the August 21, 2013 chemical weapons attack in Ghouta that caused the excruciating deaths of an estimated 1500 men, women and children in this eastern suburb of Damascus and four-and-a-half years before the events of last week.

My 2012 report originated from information provided to me by one of two sources within the intelligence community who outlined the “big picture,” from the Arab Spring to Benghazi through the present. The information provided to me then was validated and expanded by a 2016 article titled Death Race Damascus Update and proved correct by the events of last week.

Greetings fellow amateurs,

By now you’re likely aware that the US strikes in Syria that were carried out last night either represent the onset of World War III or an American power renaissance… or a vindication of total globalist control… or a test to ensure that the military would comply with an attack order… or a 4D chess move to create a bait and switch… or a necessary step towards removing an insane murderer… or an unconstitutional abhorrence… or a designed overreaction to a false flag… or seventeen thousand other things.

My point here is not to be facetious: this is extremely serious. Instead of losing our minds, let’s proceed with the necessary measure of discernment and patience. We’ve felt for awhile that we were about to hit turbulence. The captain made the announcement, but this week we started to hit the bumps. If it seems like a dozen monumental narratives clarified this week, then it’s probably because that’s exactly what’s happened.

After learning of the missile strikes last night, I went to prayer and to the Word of God. The only word I felt in my spirit was ‘watch’. So that’s what I’m doing. The reactions to this dramatic, catalyzing event have already been extremely informative. They are at the very least validating the facade of the two-party system and the obsolete media. Hopefully now we can finally forget those labels once and for all. It’s deep state globalist satanic statists versus national sovereigntists.

I for one am sick of war and heartbroken over the vast destruction that the current geopolitical and economic structure has caused, is causing, and will continue to cause unless God intervenes.

Nonetheless, I will wait and watch to see how the weekend plays out. The confluence of events here implies that the general shaking we have expected for many years may be revving up at this time.

So with the threat of war rearing its ugly head again we should definitely see a breakout in the precious metals as uncertainty leads investors to flock to risk assets… Right?

The Amateur Society: Italy & India – Macro Trends In Geopolitics And Finance



Our regular open call will take place tonight, Monday 12/05, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety. If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at

Tonight we will be examining the implications of the Italian referendum from this past weekend as well as the progression of the war on cash in India. These two narratives provide a useful perspective from which to analyze the macro trends in geopolitics and finance that are currently reverberating around the globe.

Is the revolt against globalism over or is it just getting started? What is the real motive behind the banning of large bank notes? Who stands to benefit from recent developments? How will all of this play out over the coming months and years? What should we be watching for and what steps do we need to take?

Bring your questions to our open forum and join us for another lively meeting of The Amateur Society. We look forward to having you with us. Stay safe and God bless!


Italians Deal Another Blow To European Union Establishment


Today Italians voted against a basket of proposed changes to the structure of government in a constitutional referendum. Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi will resign after the loss after having staked his political career on the results. The same gambit led to the end of British Prime Minister David Cameron’s tenure earlier this year.

Long story short, the trend of populism and nationalism continues to march on. Expect follow through on this trend into 2017 and other elections around the Eurozone. The referendum results have damaged the Euro as doubts are renewed about the future of the political union in Europe and its currency.

The dominoes continue to fall. The defeats for globalism continue to mount. However, in this time of change and upheaval we must be prepared with truth, authenticity, and solutions in order to avoid repeating the mistakes made at various points of tumult and instability throughout history.

The focus from a financial perspective will be on the world’s oldest bank, Italian lender Monte dei Paschi. The latest of many rounds of bailouts and agreements is going to be viewed as being in jeopardy because of the referendum. Nothing in the results themselves are legally binding, but the perception is that the no vote represents a dismissal of the current course of policy in general and that everything – including the bailout of the beleaguered bank – is now in question.

Whether the geopolitical instability actually translates into financial volatility remains to be seen. If it’s business as usual, then the discrepancy between credit and equities will widen and the dip in the euro will give additional phantom strength to the dollar leading to a drop in the paper price of precious metals contracts. The status quo of actual events that create uncertainty and volatility leading to less volatility from the perspective of equities is likely still intact.

The Omnipotence Override


Amid seemingly ceaseless pronouncements from high level officials about the inevitability of total global consolidation paired with vigorous denouncements of both nations and borders as archaic traditions of an outdated model of civilization, we would be well served to remember that there is nothing new under the sun. This entire project is literally as old as Genesis. Let’s first go to the Biblical text before circling back to the current school of thought that views the control mechanisms of hidden powers to be unlimited and invincible.

Now the whole earth had one language and the same words. And as people migrated from the east, they found a plain in the land of Shinar and settled there. And they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks, and burn them thoroughly.” And they had brick for stone, and bitumen for mortar. Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the heavens, and let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be dispersed over the face of the whole earth.” And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of man had built. And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another’s speech.” So the Lord dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth. And from there the Lord dispersed them over the face of all the earth.

Genesis 11:1-9
