Is Richard Hoagland on a ‘Dark Mission’?


UPDATE – 04 MAY 2011

Dr Judy Wood appeared on Coast to Coast – after (arguably) 3 years of waiting.

You can access the coast to coast write up/summary here:
Thanks to all those who helped this to happen – Lisa Lyon – George Noory and even Mr R C Hoagland (apparently) – I hope it helps more people to discover the truth of what happened. It is interesting to note that this happened just days after the latest fake Bin Laden story broke.
Let us see where we go from here!

Richard C Hoagland


Readers of other articles I have written will perhaps be wondering why I now seem to be writing an article about Mr Richard Hoagland – a well known researcher who is a regular guest and contributor to the popular “alternative” late night US syndicated talk show “Coast to Coast”. Mr Hoagland is billed as “Science Advisor” to the programme, though he does not have any formal qualifications in science subjects.  Mr Hoagland, however, did apparently work as a Curator for NASA for some time and he also worked with famed CBS reporter, Walter Kronkite – presumably on reports relating to NASA and/or the Apollo and other space missions.


Richard C. Hoagland’s Main Areas of Research


Starting in about 1983, Richard Hoagland has presented some very interesting information about Mars, the Moon and especially Iapetus and he (and others) have highlighted a number of anomalies in various photos which have been sent back by unmanned probes. Mr Hoagland has posted some quite fascinating, if at times verbose, articles on his website “Enterprise Mission”. He has mainly focused on “space-related” research topics and he has covered these at length in books such as “Monuments of Mars” and more recently “Dark Mission”. Readers of some of his articles may conclude that Mr Hoagland is something of a “trekker” – although unlike this author, Mr Hoagland apparently knew Gene Roddenberry for some time.


Outside of space research, Mr Hoagland posted a very interesting series of articles about the so-called “Norway Spiral”. However, in July 2010, he stated on Coast to Coast that a large undersea region in the Gulf of Mexico could explode from a methane build up, causing a tsunami. This has not happened, however.


Secret Space Programme Conference


With this said, it can perhaps be seen why I was interested that on Sunday April 3rd, 2011, Richard Hoagland gave a presentation in Amsterdam, as part of a conference entitled “The Secret Space Programme”. In August 2010, I was made aware by the organiser, Jeroen Van Straaten, that this conference would be happening. At that time, I had spoken to Jeroen at the Exopolitics Leeds Conference, where I presented “The Case For Antigravity”. (This presentation fits directly into the “Secret Space Programme” research area.) Jeroen did invite me to have a table to distribute some materials there. However, due to certain timing and family commitments, I decided not to attend. I was also grateful to Jeroen for offering to display a few copies of my self-published book entitled “9/11 Finding the Truth”. Jeroen also displayed some DVDs of a TV presentation by myself and Dr. Judy Wood that was done in Feb 2009 – about the destruction of the WTC, along with some flyers for Dr. Judy Wood’s hugely important book “Where Did the Towers Go? Evidence of Directed Free-Energy Technology on 9/11”


I wish, in retrospect, I had decided to attend, as I may have been able to question Mr Hoagland about a number of aspects of what he presented. One might have thought that Mr Hoagland would present something about his research from his “Dark Mission” book (co-authored with Mike Bara) However, much of the material that he presented was nothing to do with “Dark Mission”, Mars, Iapetus or any of those subjects. Rather, the material he presented was primarily about the events of 9/11.


Dr. Judy Wood’s 9/11 Research and Court Case


Some readers may know of my special interest in 9/11, as it is the topic I have written about the most on this website – and about which I have the most information posted. Similarly, readers will likely know of my association with Dr. Judy Wood – who has singularly done more than any other researcher to determine what actually happened – and take that knowledge forwards into a “Qui Tam” complaint against NIST’s contractors for Science Fraud. The complaint was eventually filed in the U.S. Supreme Court.


Very recently, Dr. Wood has made a fabulously important new book available – called simply “Where Did The Towers Go?” with a subtitle of “Evidence of Directed Free-Energy Technology on 9/11.” This is the only book about 9/11, which, examines with a wealth of scientific data, what happened to the World Trade Centre Complex. In this work (and on her website) once the “what” has been established, the evidence of the “how it was done” is also explored.


Dr. Wood’s forensic studies have shown the importance of what are known as “field effects” in relation to the destruction of the WTC Complex. This has been determined from a study of something known as “The Hutchison Effect” and Dr. Wood has also examined the likely role of Hurricane Erin in the events of 9/11. Some time ago, I made a 20-minute video summary of the evidence. Dr. Wood has also posted a “cliff notes” summary of the evidence.


Richard Hoagland’s Presentation


When I first listened to Mr Hoagland’s presentation, I was, frankly, shocked. For about 1½ hours, he presented some of the catalogue of evidence that Dr. Judy Wood had compiled and made available on her website. Though Mr Hoagland did reference Dr. Judy Wood’s name and made brief mention of her website, but it was rather odd that he did not seem to remember the name of her website when he began talking about her work (at 44:15), even though the name of her website is her name. It must be pointed out that Mr Hoagland has never been in contact with either Dr. Wood or myself – before or after this presentation. Neither of us had any idea that he would be presenting this research in as much detail as he did.


A number of people have already made remarks such as “Isn’t it fantastic that someone like Richard Hoagland is endorsing Dr. Judy Wood’s research??” Well, this might be true if he was presenting it fairly and accurately. However, as you will see from details discussed below, Mr Hoagland made a number of serious errors and omissions in his presentation and, had he consulted Dr. Wood or myself – or if the organisers had invited Dr. Wood to present this evidence, these mistakes could have been avoided.


Both myself and especially Dr. Wood work very, very hard to get details correct – science and engineering are nothing without details being correct. Hence, we both felt we needed to point out where there are mistakes in his presentation so we can ensure a “true and accurate record” of these matters becomes available to people.


Some people, I am sure, will criticise me – or us – for what may be termed “nitpicking” – however, my response is simply to refer to the previous paragraph about why details are important. Additionally, both Dr. Wood and myself are, or have been, involved in education professionally – which again means we must do our absolute best to ensure that information is passed on accurately and truthfully to those whom we are attempting to guide towards a complete understanding of whatever topic we are tasked with explaining to them. Finally, if “details” are to be submitted to court (as Dr. Wood and Jerry Leaphart did), they must be absolutely solid and definitive.


Telling the Truth


People will need to analyse the presentation closely to see some of the subtlety of the errors and mis-representations – and also, again, consider why Mr Hoagland did not present research from “Dark Mission” or other research from his own lengthy articles. Perhaps it is a measure of the importance of Dr. Judy Wood’s research that he decided to do what he did.


It is worth noting carefully what Richard Hoagland stated about the events of 9/11 in a Coast to Coast Broadcast on 16 April 2008. In discussing some developments in Solar Power with George Noory, he seemed to believe (what can be called) the “Bin Laden fantasy”:


www.checktheevidence… Hoagland on 9-11 Coast to Coast – Apr 16 2008.mp3


At 1:00 into this clip he states:


“This is a revolution that’s here – and all it’s waiting for is the right president to say ‘this is what we’re going to do – who wants to get on board’…. This is the way we change the world, I mean if you look at CNN, you look at NBC, you look at Fox, you look at the litany of awful bad news that we’ve been living with for almost 10 years now – since 2001 – since 9/11. What was the single biggest reason why Bin Laden ostensibly  killed 3000 Americans?”


So, an initial question then is, what made Mr. Hoagland change his mind so much in the intervening 3 years? Dr. Judy Wood’s research has been posted quite prominently since at least 2006 and she has been speaking about it since then.


It makes it all the more ironic – laughable even – that in his Apr 3rd  2011 presentation, Mr. Hoagland should rebuff a statement from the audience about Mohammad Atta’s Passport being found on the ground. That is, at 1:14:50 Mr. Hoagland states:


…If you believe that, I’ve got a really cool bridge deal that I… OK?


Meeting Mr. Hoagland


Personally, I wonder if he “secretly” paid attention to some of the materials and signs I had on display during the Beyond Knowledge Conference in Sept 2009 (when I gave a presentation about Crop Circles). At that event, I even attempted to strike up a conversation with Mr Hoagland, but he expressed no apparent interest – he never looked at any of booklets, leaflets or DVDs I had on display. At the same conference, Mr Hoagland did a presentation about The Secret Space programme (but the first hour which I watched was centred on anomalies in the Rings of Saturn.) 


And I say again, Richard Hoagland has never communicated with either myself or Dr. Judy Wood before or since his Amsterdam presentation (as of writing this article). Prior to this, I had resisted contacting Mr Hoagland myself because of the volume of e-mails I considered he would receive and that I had hoped he would find the available information and realise its importance without any need for me to contact him.


We can safely say, however, that he has been aware of Dr. Judy Wood’s research and website since at least January or February 2010 – when he included reference to it in the third part of his “Norway Spiral” series of articles.


Of course, many people – including myself, often reference or re-use images from Websites in presentations they give. However, it is rare that someone will present material exclusively from a website other than their own – for 1½ hours of a 2¾ hour presentation. Also, why did Mr Hoagland not take such an opportunity to present research from “Dark Mission” and raise awareness – and sales – of this book? Surely his publisher would have preferred this! (More about publishers later…)




One of the interesting things Mr. Hoagland said early in his presentation, at about 03:18 was

“As my friend Alex Jones keeps saying…”


and then he mentions the concept of a “Prison Planet” (the title of one of Jones’ websites). Mr. Hoagland  mentioned several “friends” in this presentation and a couple of these statements we will examine later. My reason for flagging this up is that Alex Jones has attacked or censored any mention of Dr. Judy Wood’s research when it has come up in discussions. One example happened on a radio show hosted by Kevin Barrett and another was when his own show was being hosted by Jason Bermas. Finally, Jerry Leaphart had to write a letter to Alex Jones, discouraging him from disparaging certain researchers whilst 9/11-related legal action was in progress. (Alex Jones, to my knowledge, never mentioned this legal case either, nor did he reply to the letter).


Around 53:00 into the presentation, Mr. Hoagland describes Dr. Joseph Farrell as his friend and he states that Joseph Farrell gave Mr. Hoagland permission to present some of Farrell’s Research. However, at no point in the presentation does Mr. Hoagland describe Dr. Judy Wood as a friend. Also, he does not state whether she gave permission for Mr. Hoagland to present her research (as already implied, she did not – as she was never contacted and asked this question). However, he refers to Dr. Wood by her first name only for much of his presentation, giving the audience the impression they are “close friends.” Dr. Joseph Farrell has had a number of his own books published with the same publisher as Mr. Hoagland – Feral House – a topic we will return to later. Richard Hoagland has appeared with Joseph Farrell on “Coast to Coast” on August 21 2008. Joseph Farrell has also spoken about Dr. Judy Wood’s research on one or two radio appearances – for example, in one of a number of broadcasts on “The Byte Show”. More recently, however, Dr. Farrell seemed to be rather less interested in talking about 9/11, it seems.


Another Friend – John Hutchison…?


At around 95:20 into the presentation Mr. Hoagland states (presumably showing a slide):


This is John Hutchison. John is a character – I’ve known him for 10 or 15 years. John is one of those exquisite, no holds barred ‘let me see what I can come up with tomorrow to just play with the universe’ kind of garage tinkerers.


As Dr. Wood has documented – and I have also stated – John Hutchison’s research is one of the keys to understanding how 9/11 was “done” – few people will talk about this in relation to 9/11 (so I was initially surprised when Mr. Hoagland did).


At around 95:30, Mr. Hoagland stated that John Hutchison was in the Navy – I doubted this was true, so e-mailed John to ask him. John confirmed he was never in the Navy (see e-mails below).


At about 103:00, Mr. Hoagland stated there was a petition to “get John out of his apartment” (in New Westminster, Vancouver, Canada) – John said in e-mail to me that no one wanted him to leave – he left to be with his partner Nancy Lazaryan and work on the Gulf Oil aftermath – with some success. (see e-mails below)


These are significant errors – the second of which appears to be some kind of attempt to cast John in a bad light.


Masonic Symbols and Presidents and the 9/11 “Truth” Movement


In his presentation, Mr. Hoagland does not start talking about 9/11 until around the 37 minute mark. In doing so, he mentions Masonic symbolism (e.g. the Twin Towers represent Jachin and Boaz). At around 39:30, he criticises the 9/11 “truth” movement, suggesting it is


…not truth, at least in the sense of the leadership – because the story they’re spinning is as fictional as the story that the Bush administration was spinning – that Rumsfeld was spinning – that Cheney was spinning. None of it is true.


He does not present any evidence to back up his statement about the “leadership of 9/11 truth”. For example, he could have referenced one of a number of articles on www.checktheevidence… – or even my free e-book 9/11 – Finding the Truth. Perhaps Mr. Hoagland was a little nervous – because if he had gone any further, he may have had to mention what one of his fellow conference speakers, Richard Dolan, said in September 2009 about 9/11 “truth”.


His comments about the Bush administration are also rather odd, bearing in mind that at about 32:50 he praised Obama for “thinking” and even likened him to President Kennedy! Perhaps Mr. Hoagland had not considered that something very odd happened with Obama – when he was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize some time during his first four weeks in office (and later received this award) and he was perhaps the only presidential candidate to tour Europe before he was elected!


The Devil is in The Detail


From around 40:00 minutes, Mr. Hoagland moves on in to his discussion of the destruction of the WTC.


At around 40:30, he lauds “Judy” (not Dr. Wood) for some time but then says


…it’s our analysis..


Later, it becomes clear that he has put his own “spin” on what the evidence actually shows. However, he does this having made some serious errors and omissions (see below). Though he says “it’s our analysis”, he never states who else has contributed to it – and arguably no real analysis is even presented.


One error that he makes is repeated several times in his presentation. He talks about the “collapse” of the towers. For example at around 42:20 he describes it as a “free fall collapse”. This is not correct, because the towers, as he proceeds to illustrate with photos from Dr. Wood’s collection, turned to dust. That is, the towers did not collapse – if they had “collapsed”, they would have hit the ground and created a seismic signature, among other things. This did not happen.


At around 44:10, Mr. Hoagland describes what sounds like Dr. Wood’s “Billiard Ball Example” (BBE) refutation of the “collapse” story and gives an illustration of how the towers were destroyed. Mr. Hoagland thought it would take 40 seconds for the building to "pancake" down, floor-by-floor.  It seems he does not understand the BBE (this is covered in Chapter 2 of “Where Did the Towers Go”, but Dr. Wood has had it on the web since 2005.)


At 47:08, Hoagland notes the lack of debris, but then quite a bit later, at around 1:49:00 confuses the issue and repeats an unverified story:


“Judy has found… these are in a huge warehouse at Kennedy airport – they snuck all this stuff out and trucked it to China to quickly melt so that all the evidence would be gone” You are looking at the biggest crime against humanity.


It appears that Mr. Hoagland must be referring to someone other than Dr. Wood because these issues are not part of a scientific analysis of empirical evidence that Dr. Wood has presented.


At around the 48:00 mark, Mr. Hoagland states that


 “Judy” is a materials scientist/engineer. Her professional credentials are that she basically back engineers stuff that breaks so the new stuff won’t break.


Quite a number of times, he mentions “Judy” rather than “Dr. Judy” or “Dr. Wood” – and in this case he makes no mention of one of her special areas of expertise – Interference and Optical Methods which are used in Stress Analysis.


At 49:30, Mr. Hoagland states he has not publicly spoken about 9/11 until now, but it is clear the evidence has been available for at least 5 years. For example,  Dr. Wood had posted: The BBE in 2005, DEW series in 2006, RFC in 2007 and qui-tam in 2007.  In 2008 Mr. Hoagland was still talking about Osama Bin Laden (see above).


In a statement quite reminiscent of Richard Gage of the bogus AE9/11 group, at 49:50 Mr. Hoagland asks


“for people to ‘demand’ a new investigation." 


Why did he do this?  He seems to be neglecting the comprehensive-forensic investigation that Dr. Wood has conducted and that he is (misre)presenting!


At 51:46, Mr. Hoagland makes a smaller error and refers to the “Union Trust"  building – which should be the Bankers Trust or Deutsche Bank building.


At 59:00 Mr. Hoagland mentions the Toasted cars stating


“They burned they melted, they ran like puddles of liquid iron. They flipped over upside down.”


Dr. Wood has not catalogued any evidence of melted and “running puddles” of iron. Indeed, this is what Steve Jones and Richard Gage have tried to convince people of – why is Mr. Hoagland so confused about the issue of heat?


Fair Use?


At around 52:50 into the presentation, Mr. Hoagland begins to describe a specific set of photographs collected by Dr. Judy Wood which show the “spire” turning to dust over a period of a few seconds.


This is a key piece of evidence – also clearly shown in this video clip I edited together.



Thanks to a “blogger”, we have an image of the screen shown at around this time. On a blog in Dutch, a poster called Observer1964 included these 2 images from Mr. Hoagland’s presentation:

img0671sz.jpg         img0672dn.jpg

The left hand image is an image I created. I did this when creating a booklet about the research of Dr. Judy Wood and the conclusions it leads one towards. The image on the left is on Page 8 of my booklet. This booklet can be downloaded as a PDF or Microsoft Word Document. Notice that Mr. Hoagland does not mention the source of the image – which was my website (pay particular attention to the style of lettering and the arrow at the left side edge of the image above). Why did Mr. Hoagland not reference the source of this image – at all?


Later, at about 1:32:30 in the presentation Mr. Hoagland starts talking about 2 previous “building disasters” – he describes one as the “Wilson Centre or Woodrow Wilson centre” (actually the Windsor Tower) in Madrid and another as the Empire State Building/B25 Bomber crash in 1945. Although we do not have a screen image to reference, it sounds very much like Mr. Hoagland is describing what is shown on Page 7 of the document/booklet mentioned above. Again, the source (my website) is not referenced or mentioned.


More interesting is the use of this image:




It appears this image can only be found in Dr. Judy Wood’s Qui Tam document – Page 6, Figure 29. (The colour arrows were added to indicate the effects on the steel pieces.) It would appear that Mr. Hoagland has therefore studied this document. We will refer to the importance of this later.


“We Know What Did It! You Don’t!”


On listening to the presentation, it appears that Mr. Hoagland seems to be trying to repeat an exercise similar to an earlier attempt by Jim Fetzer to “take ownership” of the message – and/or the conclusions of the research.


Initially praising Dr. Wood, he states, at around 59:25


“following the evidence to its extraordinary and totally (Mr Spock) illogical conclusion” 


He implies Dr. Wood has scientifically followed the evidence to the conclusions…yet he implies elsewhere that she is clueless as to what happened. For example, at 1:33:45, Mr. Hoagland states:


So, Judy’s question which is exquisitely logical is “Where did these things go?” So far she hasn’t got an answer – but I’m hoping that some of the insights that we’ve been able to put together will help in her investigation.



Mr. Hoagland then just abruptly states:


“Here is the mystery of melted steel…”


And he does not state what “help” will be given – he does not, at this point, state what “his answer” is either. Neither has he offered any help as he has not contacted Dr. Wood – ever! (Or some might read the offer of “help” as a veiled threat, much like the one by Jim Fetzer, to “redirect” her research.)


Some time later at around 1:49:15, Mr. Hoagland states:


Electromagnetic fields when they interact in certain ways create torsion – they tickle the torsion field –  which is the aether, so it’s the EM which can trigger what’s really doing this which is not – I bet you dollars to Navy Beans – not electromagnetic.


He said that electromagnetic fields interact and create torsion fields. And torsion fields are the aether.  So is he saying that electromagnetic fields create aether? It sounds like Mr. Hoagland’s explanation contains a number of “buzz words” and it is not really scientific and it is also unreferenced.


Mr. Hoagland then states:


And that’s where Judy is in error – because she doesn’t know about the existence of torsion or Hyperdimensional physics


This statement is dishonest – Mr. Hoagland has never contacted ‘Judy’ – i.e. Dr. Wood – so how can he honestly state what she does and does not know?


Mr. Hoagland then continues, with some rather confusing statements:


 or that you can get effects from EM in this other realm as a kind of erm transducer or sideways step of force and force. She’s thinking this is some kind of electromagnetic effect.


It is interesting that Mr. Hoagland does not acknowledge (or even recognize?) that one of Dr. Wood’s most prominent areas of expertise is interferometry.


In her book “Where Did The Towers Go?”, and all other communications, Dr. Wood avoids “trendy” terms. The only descriptive term she has used in attempting to describe the operation of the technology is "magnetic-electrogravitic-nuclear reactions." {p 365} That is, she has never proposed "EM" as a term descriptive of the technology that caused the destruction on 9/11, nor has she proposed using any other term. 


It appears that here, Mr. Hoagland is misrepresenting Dr. Wood’s research. Also, we may ask: Has Mr. Hoagland read Dr. Wood’s book? If he has not, why is he “pretending” to present her work? It seems we have never heard Mr. Hoagland discuss the topic of magnetic-electrogravitic-nuclear reactions, so it is natural to question if Mr. Hoagland is even familiar with this level of physics, much less understand it. So here again, we see the all-too-familiar pattern of misquoting, muddling up or misrepresenting the detail of what Dr. Wood has said.


In the same segment of the presentation, Mr. Hoagland then notes


Although she has connected it to the idea of free energy. And there’ll be [are] extensive discussions on her site – which you’ll find about the suppression of this 9/11 catastrophe mainly to keep us all in the dark – literally – about free energy and it’s [the] radical positive effect it could have on society not just here but anywhere in the world.


However, he does not really spend any significant time exploring this issue and the salient connections that have “fallen out” during Dr. Wood’s research. For example, Mr. Hoagland makes no mention, at this point, of another “friend” of his – mentioned at the beginning of the earlier “Bin Laden” clip. This is Dr. Eugene Mallove – a tireless and fearless campaigner for the development of “free energy” technologies, such as those based on Low Energy Nuclear Reactions (LENR) or “Cold Fusion”. Mr. Hoagland also fails to point out that Mallove was murdered in 2004 – and that Steven E Jones – another of the supposed “9/11 Truth Leaders” was linked to the field of LENR research. This is a subject I have also written about.


At 2:26:15 Mr. Hoagland describes steel “beams coming down” and states


“They destroy themselves in a geometry which is baffling to every single mechanical engineer, scientist who’s looked at the problem – including Judy Wood.”


What is more “baffling” is that Mr. Hoagland was unaware of this until he read through Dr. Wood’s material. Again it must be stated that Mr. Hoagland has never corresponded with Dr. Wood, spoken with her, nor ever met her in person. So we are at a loss as to how Mr. Hoagland would obtain such information about Dr. Wood, much less "every single mechanical engineer and scientist." Is this statement meant to lead listeners to conclude that “Judy only has a collection of interesting photos, but has ‘no idea’ what they mean?” It is certainly beginning to sound that way.


Referring to the groups of steel beams, Mr. Hoagland then states:


 “Here is one set that has been rolled up like a carpet by some mysterious force.”


It is interesting to note that Mr. Hoagland uses the exact same phrase that Dr. Wood has used – rather than another “buzz word”. He then jokingly describes Dr. Wood as “a material science gal” but fails to give the audience an appreciation that Dr. Wood has conducted a comprehensive analysis of the physical evidence and reported her scientific findings – this includes an explanation for the mechanism of "some mysterious force ".


“Scotty, 3 to Beam Up”


Several times in his presentation, Mr. Hoagland references Star Trek or terms which might be more “at home” in a script from an episode for that series. For example, at 1:51:40 and 1:58:50 he refers to a “disintegrator beam” (not a term used by Dr. Wood). At around 1:06:40, he discusses the “toasted cars” and missing engine blocks. Referring to the latter, he asks:


How did the engine beam up, Scotty?


Whilst in one sense this may seem harmless, in this particular context, it is a more unfortunate type of “witticism” – due to the earlier methods that have been employed to attack Dr. Wood’s research (i.e. referring to it as “space beams” or “ray beams from space”).


Muddle Up / Cover Up


I was again surprised by Mr. Hoagland’s mention of Dr. Judy Wood’s legal case. However, my “surprise” was short lived – once I had listened carefully to his description. At 1:31:40, he states:


 “… look at the official documents and the legal brief they have filed to try to get – under law – access to hidden documents, hidden information, immediate responses by the responders – that kind of thing – she’s got some of that on these pages. And it goes on for page after page after page. It’s an exquisite – really independent analysis – which has come to an unbelievable conclusion – only if you believe that the physics we’ve been spoon fed  is the only physics there is in the universe…”


Mr. Hoagland has mischaracterised the legal case – it was a science fraud case. It was not about obtaining “hidden documents”. Additionallythe filed documents included details of the first responder testimonies collected by the New York Times. Had he correctly described the legal case – by using his speaking time to explain the nature of a “Qui Tam” complaint – rather than inject witticisms and go off into areas of speculation, he would be acknowledging that Dr. Wood has not just "gathered pretty pictures," – she actually determined WHAT happened on 9/11, and filed a federal case about it! This is far more important and significant than what Mr. Hoagland described. Also, Mr. Hoagland could then have pointed out that one of the defendants in the case (ARA) should have known “whodunit” – as that formed part of their contract with the US Government.


Again, it is interesting that Mr. Hoagland does not acknowledge (or even recognize?) that one of Dr. Wood’s most prominent areas of expertise is interferometry.


These sorts of details are of huge importance and even on their own indicate why Dr. Judy Wood should have been invited to present this research, not Mr. Hoagland!


However, it seems from later “Facebook” postings that Mr. Hoagland had no intention of accurately describing the Qui Tam case. Ralph K Winterrowd, a legal campaigner based in Alaska who hosts a talk show on RBNattempted to inform readers of the identity of 2 of the defendants in the Qui Tam case (ARA and SAIC), but his posts were removed and he was blocked from posting soon after posting this information.


Also, at 2:21:00, Mr. Hoagland tries to give the impression that he understands what is behind the effects John Hutchison has created and states


.. in other words what John Hutchison is doing is “tickling the force” with his fields and his playing and his […inaudible] not at that time knowing at all what he was doing but getting amazing effects because of the interaction back and forth… the commutivity can flow in both directions – EM fields produce torsion, torsion produces EM fields. The torsion field is primary. And there he is – pleased as punch at what he’s doing even though he hasn’t a clue what he’s doing.



In a broadcast on 04 Apr 2010 with Dr. Judy Wood and Ralph Winterrowd, John Hutchison states, at around 31:50




I use a different combination of radio waves along with threshold high voltage and electrostatic operators and I only use weak magnetic fields to “steer” the electrostatic around to cause it to conform to certain patterns.


Though he then refers to it as an “accidental discovery” and that he had real problems replicating it in the early years, he goes on to describe how he was spurred on, to some extent, by requests for demonstrations to some of the more open-minded scientists. It sounds like he “does have a clue”. Indeed, he was able to reproduce the effects on many occasions – one example being for an (apparently unreleased) Rob Simone documentary, filmed in 2007 (and there are later examples, though John’s YouTube channel showing some of these was deleted).


Therefore, it appears that John Hutchison does "have a clue" about what he is doing – as he understands how to produce results from the interference of various forms of energy fields.  That is, he can demonstrate this technology.


“Space Beams”?


Towards the end of the presentation, at around 2:31:00, Mr. Hoagland states:


“The torsion field as it was excited by this external energy source – applied as a beam – as an interference pattern by some very sophisticated folks – probably in orbit – probably directing this toward the ground – hundreds of miles below – a la what Ed [Grimsley] has been showing us now for nights on the cruise and then last night up at the hotel – that technology destroyed these 2 buildings – and brought them down by disintegrating at the molecular level – all their components and there’s so much more correlating data that I don’t have time – obviously but it’s out there.


Is Mr. Hoagland therefore saying he can’t really explain it? Sadly, Hoagland does not cover any evidence of why he thinks the weapon system might be in orbit. Dr. Wood was the first person to point out the circular holes and cut outs in the tops of the building – but they may have been created by some type of interference effects, as circular holes have been created in 1 or more of John Hutchison’s metal samples.


Buzz Words and Jokes


Mr. Hoagland’s presentation is peppered with jokes and buzz words. Do jokes enhance or suppress someone’s critical thinking?  Is it the case that “non-scientists” can use scientific-sounding buzz words repeatedly to make an audience think they are an authority on a given subject? Remember, Mr. Hoagland does not have a science degree – Dr. Judy Wood has completed 3 science degrees, post-doctoral research, and has been a university professor in her area of expertise.


Dr. Wood has observed in her book {pages 451-452} that using a “buzz word” can often discourage people from thinking about the details of a phenomenon and therefore they are less likely to develop an understanding of it.




Even though Mr. Hoagland’s presentation lasted the best part of 3 hours, there were many significant omissions and (as described above) a number of distortions.


Here are just a few of the omissions


  • Seismic Evidence

  • WTC “Bathtub” Description

  • Round holes in windows and those double-paned windows where only the outer pane is broken

  • Phenomenon of no “stab wounds” in the region of the 18-80th floors of the WTC

  • The so called “jumpers” who jumped out of the tower before it was destroyed.

  • Transmutation of materials.

  • Rust Effects

  • Weird Fires

  • Ongoing effects at the site.

  •  Dirt piles

  • Discussion of WTC 7 destruction

  • “Prepping” of buildings (lathering and other related effects).

  • Alaskan Magnetometer Data


Finally, his most significant omission was Hurricane Erin. This is a particularly interesting omission for several reasons. At 86:25 Mr. Hoagland mentioned effects seen in Tornados, stating


I got to thinking one day “What is a tornado? It is a spinning column of air. This creates a torsion field.”


This was a question asked by Dr. Wood when she began to research Hurricane Erin in early 2008, and the similarities with the Hutchison Effect, while she was studying Hurricane Erin. She presented this in May 2008 (Seattle), including the quote, "I swear I could see cars floating.", from a news report.


Curiously, in October 2005, Mr. Hoagland posted information on his blog noting the anomalous behaviour observed in both Hurricane Wilma and Hurricane Ophelia! (This information is only currently present in the “Internet Archive” as Mr. Hoagland has deleted it from his website or moved it from its original location). This makes his omission of Hurricane Erin particularly staggering!


Summary of What We Have Observed so Far


· Mr. Hoagland described the Qui Tam case incorrectly – trivialising it.

· He stated several times that “Judy” was in error or “did not know what happened”.

· He made errors about John Hutchison and also stated that John “had no clue what he was doing”.

· He made serious omissions which prevented people from gaining a full and coherent picture of the evidence.


It seems clear that, in large part, Mr. Hoagland has misrepresented Dr. Wood’s research. He presented her analysis as his own – while implying she was “clueless” about what happened. Three years ago, Mr. Hoagland was still promoting the “9/11 Bin Laden story”. Four years ago, Dr. Wood submitted her analysis in a federal qui tam case. This is a matter of public record. So Dr. Wood and Mr. Hoagland didn’t "just happen to discover the same thing at the same time."


She is a careful scientist and does not blurt out speculations and guesses to "be the first" so she can “cash in on a prize”. As a result, she has never had to retract any of her scientific findings.


What reason could there be for Mr. Hoagland wanting to present Dr. Wood’s research – especially considering Dr Joseph Farrell had “dropped out of the conference? i.e. Why wasn’t Dr Wood invited to present her research in the absence of Joseph Farrell, while Mr. Hoagland focused on an area he had previously covered? Is Mr. Hoagland attempting to muddle up the evidence – the truth – rather than give it “clear passage”?


Dr. Wood did the research in her area of expertise as a scientist, began speaking the truth, and in doing so, ended up with no job. Receiving some support from a few others, she has written a 500-page book which has largely been self-financed.


And it is the matter of the publication of the book which we now turn to.


Dr. Judy Wood’s Science Book – “Where Did The Towers Go?”


It should be noted that Dr. Wood’s compendious forensic study (which Hoagland, at around 56:20 in his presentation, derogatively described as a “25-pound door stop”) was published in 2010 and Dr. Wood announced its availability on her website in an interview on Red Ice Creations in January 2011. We have wondered if there is any connection between the recent publication of this book and Mr. Hoagland’s presentation of some of the evidence contained within it.


At this point, it is unclear if Mr. Hoagland was aware the existence of or had read a copy of the book before his presentation.


However, what is known is the reason why Dr. Wood’s book has been “self-published”.


Publish and Be Damned


Following an arrangement by someone else, Feral House was approached to publish the book that Dr. Judy Wood has spent considerable time compiling. As mentioned near the start of this article, this publisher is the same one that has published Dark Mission (Hoagland / Bara) and several works by Joseph P Farrell.


In late 2008 and into 2009, there was discussion about the length of the book, that it would be in colour throughout with many photographs, and that it needed to remain confidential until released, but in early 2009 the publisher did sign a contract with Dr. Judy Wood to publish the book and a small advance was paid to her. A cover was designed for the book, based on the design that Dr. Wood completed.


The story of what happened over the next few weeks is rather long and convoluted, but the end result was that the publisher made various claims and eventually published a listing for a book which indicated it would have been much reduced from the original proposed length – and it would not have had enough images in it to illustrate properly to the reader what actually happened on 9/11. Also, it was priced as a black-and-white book, which is much-much cheaper to produce.


Realizing there had been no “meeting of minds” for the contract, Dr. Wood asked to terminate the contract, but the publisher refused to allow her out of the contract and refused to publish her book. One of the reasons given was that her book (540 total pages) was too many pages, yet a book (Dark Mission) by the same publisher had more pages. It had begun to seem like Adam Parfrey, who runs Feral House, had no intention of publishing the book. Numerous people had been impatiently waiting to buy the book and were contacting the publisher, asking about it. Eventually Dr. Wood was allowed to buy back the contract.


For quite some time, a product listing for the book appeared on Amazon as “unavailable” – and this remained even after the publisher had abandoned publication. The listing remained until someone else asked for it to be removed. Taking an opportunity to provide information about the now published and complete version of the book, a few people posted reviews and comments on the Amazon listing page.The comments from Mr Parfrey make interesting reading.


At the time of writing this article, several (UK-related) “bogus” Feral House book listings for “Where Did the Towers Go?” are present on sites such as WaterstonesAbe Books and WH Smith. The problem is that these sites could serve to make people think that Dr. Wood’s book has never been published and remains unavailable.


I therefore wrote to Waterstones about their listing. They referred me to a company called Nielsen, who maintain a database which is used to generate these listings. I wrote to Nielsen, who in turn referred me back to Feral House (or their distributor) as being responsible for “feeding in” the listings. I then wrote to Feral House to ask them who their UK distributor was. I sent them the responses I received from both Waterstones and Nielsen. I addressed my message to  and I received this response:

Dear Mr. Johnson,


What a strange remark to you from that Waterstones employee.


As you suggested in your email, Feral House has properly announced that it was no longer publishing "Where Did the Towers Go"…


It’s difficult for us to admit that Feral House is unable to control the actions of others, no matter how misleading they might be.


We hope that you are able to help resolve these clerical errors.


Sincerely yours,


E. Whitson

(for Feral House)


Notice that the response came from Adam Parfrey’s e-mail address, but the person stated their name as “E. Whitson.” Also, it was as if I was responsible for resolving the “clerical errors” – not them. They also did not help me in identifying who the UK distributor was – so I had to find that out from another source. In researching who the distributor was, I came across some very interesting information (see below). Eventually, I discovered that the UK distributor was a company called Turnaround Publisher Services Ltd so I wrote to them and they have recently agreed to update the book listing.


A Macabre Twist


In my attempts to find out who the UK Distributor for Feral House was, I came across some disturbing information. In 2001, Feral House decided they would publish a book by convicted serial killer Ian Brady. This I found deeply troubling – as the book itself was called “The Gates of Janus” and is about serial killers. There was, not surprisingly, considerable consternation about the publishing of this book.


Perhaps it is a very good thing that Dr. Wood’s work was not published by Feral House. Perhaps it is also a good thing that there is not, nor has there ever been any direct communication between Mr. Hoagland and Dr. Judy Wood.



On Jan 19 2013, Mr Hoagland appeared with John B Wells and he seemed to again demonstrate he has either not read the book he is advertising (thanks Rich!) or he’s not bothered about the details… Have a listen (thanks to the person who sent me these 2 clips, joined together:


www.checktheevidence… Hoagland – Muddling Up on Coast to Coast – 19 Jan 2012.mp3


We can hear that Mr Hoagland

  • Muddles together Joseph Farrell’s work, Dr Judy Wood and the Philadelphia Experiment.

  • thinks planes hit the towers (they did not).

  • thinks the building "dematerialised" – it did not, though he then says more correctly "it dustified"

  • thinks the debris was shipped to China – it was not.

  • repeatedly mentions "torsion fields" (buzz words) rather than carefully discussing the actual evidence.

He can’t even quote Khalezov’s story correctly (not that this is important really). Not bad for 10 minutes of air time… for a science advisor! Well, at least he mentioned the name of the book correctly!

Hope you’re well…

I am working to correct some information… be great if you were able to let me know!

A presentation I listened to by Richard Hoagland said that you left Vancouver because there was a petition by neighbours – is this true?

All the best
