Monday March 20, 2017
7:00pm EDT We smash right out of the gate this evening with debut guest, FBI Serial Killer Profiler, John Kelly.
John Kelly is one of America’s preeminent serial killer profilers, murder theorists and addiction specialists who rose to national fame as co-star ofInvestigation Discovery’s “Dark Minds” television series. His street smart background and insights obtained as a therapist working with drug addicts led him to prominence when he began to pioneer the use of the term “addiction” with serial killer in his 1992 paper, “The Alcohol, Drug and Serial Killer Connection”. Kelly is also author of Low Self-Esteem The Beginning Of Addiction. He later founded S.T.A.L.K. Inc. (System To Apprehend Lethal Killers) which aids law enforcement in the capture of murderers through a comprehensive profiling process. Kelly has worked with police on over 100 cases over the past 20 years. As the first theorist to identify serial killing as an addiction, Kelly‘s profiling efforts were applied to the case of the Green River Killer, the Main South Woodsman case, the Charles Cullen Angel of Death case, Scotland Yard’s Gay Slayer case, the 2001 Anthrax Killer case, the Atlantic City Murders, and the case of the Long Island Killer among others. Kelly, who often acts as an expert witness consultant, has conducted interviews with serial murderers such as the “Killer Clown” John Wayne Gacy and Death Row inmate Henry Lee Lucas. It was through S.T.A.L.K. that Kelly first enlisted the help of a convicted serial killer code-named “13” to build criminal profiles. He has been working with 13 for over ten years. Kelly is the author of Warning Signs — A Guidebook for Parents.
8:00pm EDT We have eagerly sought this guest for our program for quite some time and it is with great anticipation that we welcome Christian Evangelist, former wise guy, Mr Michael Franzese.
Michael Franzese grew up as the son of the notorious Underboss of New York’s violent and feared Colombo crime family. At his most affluent, he generated an estimated $5 to $8 million per week from legal and illegal businesses. It was a life filled with power, luxury…and deadly violence.
In 1986, mafia boss, Michael Franzese was named one of the biggest money earners the mob had seen since Al Capone, by Vanity Fair. At the age of 35, Fortune Magazine listed him as number 18 on its list of the “Fifty Most Wealthy and Powerful Mafia Bosses”, just 5 behind John Gotti. Avoiding traditional mob domains, Michael masterminded brilliant scams on the edge of the legitimate business world. From auto dealerships and union kickbacks, to financial services and the sports and entertainment industries, to a multi-billion dollar gasoline tax scheme, he earned millions in cash every week at his peak. Not surprisingly, Michael quickly became the target of Manhattan’s famed federal prosecutor, Rudy Guiliani. After promising Michael 100 years behind bars after indicting him on racketeering charges, Rudy only came up empty handed. Escaping four more indictments, it seemed Michael Franzese truly was invincible.
While producing Knights of the City, a break dance movie filmed in Florida, Michael met a beautiful dancer from Anaheim, California, named Camille Garcia, whose innocent beauty and faith turned his world upside down. After falling in love and eventually marrying Cammy, Michael took the rap on racketeering charges. Michael pled guilty, accepted a 10 year prison sentence and vowed to do the unthinkable – walk away from the mob. Nobody of his rank had ever just walked away – and lived. Until now.
Michael Franzese is the only high ranking official of a major crime family to ever walk away, without protective custodies, and survive.
Determined to use the compelling experiences of his former life for the benefit of corporate executives, professional and student athletes, at-risk youth, church audiences, and for anyone seeking the inspiration to beat the odds and make positive changes in their lives, he has become a highly regarded motivator and a source of invaluable information. Franzese candidly describes how he survived dozens of grand jury appearances, 5 major racketeering indictments, 5 criminal trials, 7 years in prison and a Mafia death sentence. He tells how he engaged bankers, corporate executives, union officials and professional and student athletes in a wide variety of financial scams. His open and honest presentations are fresh and unique. Audiences are captivated by stories of his personal experiences in organized crime and genuinely affected by his powerful anti-crime messages and eye opening revelations.
His autobiography, Blood Covenant, Michael reveals answers to many mysteries surrounding his incredible journey. Walk the streets with him to find out how he has done what no one else has managed to do.
His latest book, I’ll Make You An Offer You Can’t Refuse, was recently released by Thomas Nelson, and contains insider business tips from the former mob boss.

7:00pm EDT Former FBI Special Agent Joe Pistone aka Donnie Brasco joins us for his debut appearance on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report.
In 1976, FBI undercover agent Joseph Pistone successfully infiltrated New York’s Bonanno Mafia family. Going under the name of “Donnie Brasco”, Pistone became close to several Mafia members during an assignment that lasted five years and the information he amassed over that time led to hundreds of arrests.
In 1974, Joseph D. Pistone was transferred to New York and assigned to the truck hijacking squad of the FBI. There were five to six major hijackings per day in the New York City area and intelligence sources indicated that all were somehow tied to various Mafia families. The FBI organized a six-month undercover operation, known as “Sun-Apple” to infiltrate the fences. The FBI gave Pistone a new identity as a small, but successful, jewel thief and burglar called Donnie Brasco.
Pistone went to school to learn about precious gems, and the FBI set him up with an apartment in New York and one in Florida, while his family lived in another part of the country. He targeted bars and restaurants he knew were frequented by certain mob members until one day he got into a conversation with Benjamin ‘Lefty’ Ruggiero.
Ruggiero had worked as a loyal foot soldier for the Mafia for 30 years and killed 26 people in total. Brasco impressed him and the two joined forces as business partners, with Ruggiero becoming his mentor and sponsor—if Brasco let the family down Ruggiero would pay with his own life.
An average day would start with checking in with Ruggiero, Brasco’s captain, and then hanging out in a bar or nightclub trying to think of new ways to make money or advancing up the Mafia ladder. Brasco always worked with the same people and never asked what other members were doing or even who they were. Too many questions were viewed with great suspicion and this rule complicated his undercover role and contributed to its longevity.
During his time undercover Brasco was ordered to commit four contract killings. There was no question of refusal, so Brasco would either manipulate himself out of the hit at a later date or, if that proved too difficult, the FBI would stage a fake killing.
He was able to see his wife Maggie and their three daughters once every three or four months for a day on average. Discussing the outlines or ramifications of the case would have been a breach of security, so his family had no idea what he was doing, which took a tremendous toll on their relationships.
9:00pm EDT. Set your calendar. Set your alarm. Tie a string around your…iPhone, because we are super stoked to welcome bestselling author, international speaker and Evangelpreneur, Host of the Josh Tolley Show, Mr Josh Tolley.
Josh grabbed lightening by the tail when he developed the inspiration for his smash book, Evangelpreneur. The basic idea is that as a child of the Living God, you were not born into captivity, but rather into the freedom that the blood of atonement provides. So does your cruddy going nowhere job feel like freedom? Or slavery?
You may be pulling against God’s perfect plan for your life and not even know it! Honestly Josh’s book is a must read. I repeat: MUST READ. It simply combines the Great Commission to spread the Gospel, with freeing yourself to do so, by cutting the hamster-wheel job loose.
As a quick side note: we added Josh to this week’s lineup because his producer contacted the Hagmann Report with some mission critical information that Josh will share this evening and analyze, in detail, with Doug and Joe. In conclusion, the Hagmann and Hagmann Report has always enjoyed a warm relationship with Josh Tolley and the Josh Tolley Show and we stand shoulder- to-shoulder with his top notch organization; especially in the midst of the censorship matrix being imposed on the new media.

9:00pm EDT Former CIA Officer, Kevin Shipp returns after far too long to check in with Doug and Joe Hagmann.
Kevin Shipp, former CIA Officer and Anti Terrorism expert, held several high level positions in the CIA. He was assigned as a protective agent for the Director of Central Intelligence, a counterintelligence investigator, team leader protecting sensitive CIA assets from assassination, manager of high risk Counter Terrorism Center protective operations, lead instructor for members of allied governments, internal staff security investigator and a polygraph examiner tasked with protecting the CIA from foreign agent penetration. He is the recipient of two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, three Exceptional Performance Awards and a Medallion for overseas covert operations.
Shipp also supervised the Department of State Anti Terrorism Assistance program and managed the protective detail assigned to the president of Afghanistan following the US invasion.
Born in Laramie, Wyoming, he and his family moved to Falls Church, Virginia where he spent most of his life. He put himself through college using college loans, working during summers and hitchhiking to and from Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. Later, he earned a Master’s level degree in forensic psycho physiology and the detection of deception from the Department of Defense Academy for Credibility Assessment.
From the Company of Shadows is a fascinating revelation of the procedures the CIA uses in conducting covert operations, counterintelligence investigations and counter terrorism. This is a detailed expose’ covering multiple facets of CIA intelligence and secrecy.
How did this book make it by the censors?
Kevin Shipp provides a detailed expose’ of the CIA’s use of secrecy and the executive branch’s abuse of the little known State Secrets Privilege.
“From 1953 to the present the federal government, and most notoriously the CIA, has used the assertion of the State Secrets Privilege to block cases of negligence, discrimination, shut down whistleblower claims, prevent other branches of government from conducting investigations…”
Shipp provides a stunning example of the CIA’s concealment of negligence by including excerpts from his book on the subject, blacked out by CIA censors. He spent months going back and forth, line by line, word by word, negotiating with the CIA for the book’s release.
Shipp courageously exposes the current stealth jihad movement operating in the US and lays out the techniques terrorist organizations use to carry out their attacks.
