This is a repost of an article by Randy Maugans at Off Planet Radio. The original article can be found here.
This radio show host long been warning about the corruption, lies, financial chicanery, COINTELPRO/Disinfo spinmeisters and unseemly characters who populate so-called “alternative media”. Roxy Lopez, a well-respected journalist/talk show host outlines below how deep into the brown matter this space has sunk.
It is not news to anyone who has heard my screeds on Project Camelot, Michael Hemmingson (a/k/a “Former White Hat Operative”), or followed the tragedy of murdered blogger/MKUltra abductee, Khris Neal. I have watched first-hand the rapid decay of David Icke’s Peoples Voice Network and personally know some of the people who got screwed by PVN. Then, there is Revolution Radio: a nest of snakes that continue to promote some of the darkest agents in the webosphere. Meanwhile, it seems that the best people to present the TRUTH about all of this are the few uncorrupted souls who walked into this fray unawares…MORE TO FOLLOW THIS YEAR. - Randy Maugans

First of all I would like to thank my listeners and viewers for their undying support and loyalty. This is exemplary of your savviness and ability to see the truth without any facts in place regarding my swift departure from the radio station known as Revolution Radio, freedomslips.com. Without you, I would not have had the courage to continue reporting the truth to a world that desperately seeks transparency. The following statements are facts surrounding my departure from Rev Radio on December 6th, 2013. Hopefully this will serve the public with suffice evidence of the accounts that took place.
Note: 2013 was the year that global media controllers moved in on any of us in alternative media that were actually making a difference. If you were any good at what you were reporting in the media,then you got attacked,smeared, fired, or you are now deceased. This is not an accident, this is an intentional operation to wear down good journalists and for the record, and I am not the only journalists that this has happened to. The attacks have been a divisive tool by the controllers to split us all up: Remember those hosts I brought over to Rev Radio, most of them are no longer my friends. They did not stand with me when this all took place.It has been a war on our minds, and last but not least, an assault on our credibility as journalists. Nothing less than a smear campaign.
My statements are as follows:
I have been an alternative media journalists, radio show host, and documentary maker for the past four years in an effort to create awareness for the public and 2013 was a very successful year for alternative media global transparency for the public. The Truth Denied had made its mark and a serious turning point was about to occur. The events that took place throughout the year seemed to be increasingly strenuous in hindsight, so I now refer to it as a “slow kill” for journalists who had integrity in their reporting. Where did it all begin?
I was contacted in 2011 by Revolution Radio to host a prime time position, but turned it down several times, as I was currently conducting radio shows in 2 prime time slots at American Freedom Radio. As I picked up momentum and listenership at AFR, I began to observe a lack of transparency regarding the stations money stream. After several months of being an AFR host, I was told by the station owner Mr. Danny Romero that if I sold advertisements on my show, I could make an income stream. I have been a volunteer from the start (meaning I did not have an income stream) so this was a no brainer. I set out to introduce myself to advertisers and found two companies that were willing to sponsor my shows, but within a week, I was fired on a Friday night right after my LIVE show aired, and to this day feel I was never given a proper explanation. AFR’s owner Danny Romero called me after the show and said “We love you but….we have to let you go, you’re fired.” (How do you fire a volunteer who raises money for your station?). What a strange concept, your fired?
I later found out that Mr. Romero wanted the sole income stream from my radio shows, so you see once I found my own advertisers, Danny Romero would have had to share some of the money with me as he had promised. I was no longer of any use for him, so he canned me.
FYI: I received a note a week ago from Sean David Morton that “Danny Romero had been busted for a meth lab at his studio. “. I cannot prove this, but I can verify that Romero’s AMERICAN FREEDOM RADIO literally vanished from the airwaves in December of 2013.
UPDATE from one of our listeners: The Danny Romero story has officially been vetted. Please feel free to read the story yourselves, yes Danny Romero owner of American Freedom Radio got busted for operating a meth lab. (Thank you to Charles Kafka)
It was at this juncture that Revolution Radio re-approached me to conduct LIVE shows, so I decided to I accept the volunteer position, as well negotiated some form of trade or exchange for my work. The final agreement that was struck between Rev Radio and THE TRUTH DENIED TALK RADIO was simple, moving forward I would receive a recorded copy of my edited version of my radio shows in exchange for conducting professional radio interviews with Freedomslips.com. Looking back, I must say that it was off to a rocky beginning with the weekly abuse from the station owner who was difficult to deal with most of the time, though he eventually provided me with my shows, and I moved forward to advertise all shows and the station on my websites and blogs, at my expense..
By 2013, the already rocky relationship with the owner Mike Ringley (aka Nighthawk) had become increasingly abusive and it was reported to me by those who volunteered at the station that Mike R was “drinking excessively in combination with prescription pills” as his health was declining. I reached out to Mike R. and asked what I could do to help, and his responses to me were full of anger and hatred towards me and all of the hosts in general, he was obviously in a downward spiral. Shortly after contact with Mike R., I was approached by station manager Joe Latoja (otherwise known as “Tones”) who was (his words not mine) calling me to ‘talk me off of the ledge’, because I had previously expressed my disappointment with the complete unprofessionalism and incompetency of the station, especially when it came to the adversarial tactics of its owner that were increasingly becoming random and abusive. Joe Tones had stated at the time that “It’s become a full time job just talking hosts off of the ledge, so many were leaving and complaining about being mistreated, so much so that he felt bad that no one ever thanked the hosts for there work” “Tones” would ask me to stay and promise to take care of my needs, which by this time were simply “Can you please keep this guy (Nighthawk) away from me?” “Tones” assured me he would handle this. This did not happen. Hawk would not stop the attacks and verbal abuse towards me.*Note: (Is ‘Tones’ Mike R.’s ‘handler’?)
Keep in mind that I never missed a show, never took a day off, worked through holidays and I was never late to my own show. I treated the “job” as though it were a paid position, as well treated all of the volunteers at RR with respect until the very end.
The escalation looked like this: (You may ask yourselves, how did I hang in there all that time?)
- Disjointed sentences, angry remarks in the radio stations private Skype chat along with random calls that all hailed from the owner Mike R. that came ‘out of the blue’ accusing me of being an incompetent idiot .
- ( Instead of responding in kind, I would ask what I could do to help, and all I received was more vial and repulsive remarks from him. I chocked it up to “Well, he is one unhappy guy, I think I will just steer clear of him.)
- Increasing technical difficulties during the live shows, and when I attempted to sort them out with the station, I would not get solutions, rather more problems and demands from the station to “get my act together”.
- By summer of 2013, I had spent in excess of 100 hours on the phone with my producer ( who goes by the name of “Amadpainter”), and ‘Tones’, as well a woman named ‘Catt”. (It was an attempt to repair any technical problems, as well a way to circumvent and prevent further communication from Mike R. and perhaps some type of intervention for the radio station for management and unity amongst the hosts, which by this time had grown to roughly 60 hosts. ‘Amadpainter’ assured me that management and volunteers at the station were speaking to ‘Hawk” on my behalf to not only keep Mike R. away from me but “ fighting to keep me at the station because my listenership was constantly increasing, and that they “needed professionals like Roxy Lopez to sustain a credibility with listeners as a whole”.
- Listeners wrote in asking if I was okay because they had seen Mike R. aka Nighthawk in the Rev Radio chat room going off on members, losing his mind, and listeners were getting concerned for my safety.
- In 2013, I had brought many hosts to the Freedomslips.com Radio station, hosts that were friends and colleagues of mine for the sole purpose of helping (my friends) to expand their public forums. Friends like Cathy Bilsky, Bernard Alvarez of the GIC, Sallie Elkordy (who in turn brought Dr. Rebecca Carley), Dr. Wil Spencer and others. I began to reach out to other Rev Radio hosts, introduce myself and let them know if there was anything I could do to help.
- By late summer, even my guests and colleagues were observing the abusive and insulting behavior coming from Mike R. and began calling me to ask what they could do to help. I had scheduled radio interviews booked out 2 months in advance, so cancelling future shows was not an option. I was compelled to pull up my bootstraps, and used the word “onward” often.
- To my dismay, the level of abuse coming from Rev Radio escalated and now station volunteers were calling to tell their side of the story, one in particular named ‘Catt’, called me several times asking for my help with Nighthawk (aka Hawk, aka Mike Ringley), that perhaps he needed “treatment’, as in ‘rehab for addicts’. Even then I was willing to help, but made it very clear that I could not be a part of the intervention, but I could put them in good hands. I later found out that every single time the station called me on the phone, CATT had recorded it. Isn’t this illegal? Right around this time, Hawk spouted out in a Skype chat room that “I don’t even drink alcohol! I don’t need help wtf!!!!” Yes one more time, I was the escape goat and the ‘bad guy’.
- I finally began to put my foot down by telling my producer ‘Amadpainter’, that I would either have to leave the station, or that ‘Hawk”,’Catt’, JustinTime aka who knows?) ” needed to stay away from me. I believed that ‘Amadpainter’ was my friend, so I began to tell him everything, which in the end turned out to be me playing right into the “game”. He turned out to be equally disloyal and fed the station managers all of my thoughts and future game plans.
- In 2013 , many hosts were walking off the air, leaving on vacations and never returning to Rev Radio, getting fired and being replaced with voices/hosts who spouted nothing but non- truths, drama, and ZERO facts to support their claims. The station was going downhill fast, being overrun with liars……..how could this happen, and why would anyone want this to happen? Nighthawk (aka Hawk, aka Mike Ringley) opened up a channel for himself and began assaulting the public LIVE on the air, calling everyone names all the way up to the President of the USA. He was clearly out of control like a bullet train without brakes! What happened to the original intent of the station, isn’t this supposed to be about the TRUTH? Love? Unity? Competition to the Mainstream junk?
- December 2013, I received a phone call from ‘Tones’, aka Joe Lantoja, aka Joe Tones, aka Joe Latona. (now the X-manager of Revolution Radio aka freedomslips.com) He let me know that he had quit Rev Radio and was calling to let me know he was taking a trip to Egypt, and upon his return, he would like to put together a new radio station, one with integrity and truth, etc. During the conversation he asked me to ‘PLEASE not quit Rev Radio, hang in there until he returned from Egypt”. He also asked that I not talk to ANYONE about his plans. He also gave me a list of who he would take from the station with him, and explained that he would like this to happen all in one day. His departing words were “This is WAR.”. The entire conversation turned out yet to be one more lie; he is still with Rev Radio behind the scenes. Just another game plan to keep me in Rev Radio’s sights.Just another head trip, psyop essentially ‘more of the same tactics’.
- Note: I have to ask WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE living in the shadows who remain faceless?
- By December 6th, 2013, my scheduled radio show with guest Dale Boswell was hijacked by RR and I walked off the air, never to return. It has not ended there, and in a future report, I will update you all of the fallout from just that one night.
2013 was the year that global media controllers moved in on any of us in alternative media that were actually making a difference. If you were any good at what you were doing, you got attacked,smeared, fired, or you are now deceased. This is not an accident, this is an intentional operation to wear down good journalists and for the record, and I am not the only journalists that this has happened to. The attacks have been a divisive tool by the controllers to split us all up: Remember those hosts I brought over to Rev Radio, most of them are no longer my friends. But that is a story for another day, and I will report on this to keep you in the know.They did not stand with me when this all took place. They said that Nighthawk was “possessed, evil , a drug addict, an alcoholic,but they would not state any of this publicly. It has been a war on our minds, and last but not least, an assault on our credibility as journalists. Nothing less than a smear campaign.A more sinister take would be the possibility that they are an agency whose sole purpose is to slander and dis-empower good journalists.
Would you like to know who stood with me? It may surprise you to learn that my guests (and I mean all of them) my TTD team, and last but not least, you the public!
Now let’s ask ourselves something here?
- Why is it NOT okay to ask where all the money is going, all the donations, all the paid subscriptions…..why is there no transparency? I was required to raise money every single show, and if I missed just one of those announcements on the LIVE shows, I heard all about it.
- You may ask why it took me over 5 weeks to report this to you.
- You may ask what I conclude.
I have only this to offer you.
For those of you who have walked through pain, for those of you are still in pain, this is for you.
I have testified to the truth of my experience. I was afraid to come forward with the truth for fear that my website and blog sites, Facebook and exterior social media sites, and You Tube Channels would get hacked. I wanted the truth to stay out there, and I did not want to risk it all going down in flames. My husband and I had one of the most sad holiday seasons with our sweet kitty Harley sick and dying, and he finally was put to sleep on December 26th, 2013. I died that day as my husband Steve crumbled right alongside of me. Our hearts were destroyed, it was the final straw and I personally soon fell into a deep depression. The year that I struggled through all of this chaos, deceit, assaults, abuse, attacks…..and now our sweet sick Harley’s passing, had now been the death of me. It kicked me in the gut so hard that I fell to the floor and stayed there.
I was numb, and in this void I accepted my own death, and left everything that I had worked so hard to achieve behind me. I cried for days, I purged my insanity on the phone with friends and family. I got so angry, sad, lost, and lonely inside of myself. I felt useless, passionless, floating in an abyss of nowhere land. I felt powerless, and the land of ‘hope’ had quickly become a mirage. The world in which I once knew was now beyond a matrix of lies; I felt I had been forever shackled to a prison wall, and left to die. But the life lines were there, the phone kept ringing, the love kept pouring in, the public kept praying, and then my world ended.
And then something miraculous happened. I came to realize that even though the storm of 2013 was the worst assault on my life I had ever experienced, somehow I was still here. Beat up and confused, but nevertheless, I was still here. I walked through the flames, only to emerge a better and more complete soul.
How the hell did this happen?
I share my story with you all in hopes of lending my inspiration and my knowing that we are all beings of light. We are all here to enjoy the fellowship of one another, and we are most definitely passed a tipping point of resolve, once and for all. We must stay together, walk, talk, pray and share ourselves with one another. Share your truth, use your voice, and inspire others to do the same.
Love is so important, love hurts but it also heals.
I will never be censored again.
I will not participate in ANY fund raisers for radio stations, donation platforms,websites, etc. ever again unless the money is transparent to the PUBLIC.
I will not broadcast at any radio station (internet or otherwise) if I have to raise money for them without transparency, including David Ickes THE PEOPLE’s VOICE.
***Please read host and alternative media journalist Sonia Poulton’s story, as she left TPV because of the same issues concerning lack of transparency due to possible misuse of donations.Read her statement here.http://soniapoulton-dot-co-dot-uk/page13.htm
Sonia Poultan begins by stating :
“I have been overwhelmed by the support I have received following my departure from The People’s Voice on Monday, January 6, 2014.
This is my statement of events.
During the brief period when I worked as a full-time journalist and presenter at The People’s Voice office in Wembley – every week day, sometimes 12 hours a day for the period from November 18th to January 6th – various volunteers and staff made alarming comments to me about the financial accounting at The People’s Voice.
I was told that public money had been ‘squandered’, ‘spent unwisely’ and ‘in an easy-come, easy-go manner’. I was informed that various pieces of equipment, including a handheld camera, had ‘gone missing’. It was alleged that money had been paid to someone who did not warrant being paid and who shared a property in Wembley with David – amongst other accusations.
Given these suspicions I was not happy with David Icke and Sean Adl-Tabatabai – TPV’s station manager – suggesting a second telethon on January 3, 2014. This was to raise more money for TPV following a two-week Christmas break from live programming.
I realised that the public, who had already donated far in excess of £300,000, was losing some goodwill towards TPV – and for a number of reasons.
I felt, as did other members of staff who said it to me – but did not have the courage to say it to David Icke directly – that all financial dealings should be public and transparent.
I believe, and conveyed this to David Icke, Sean ADL and Liz Roberts – in their respective roles as Station Manager and Production Manager – that all money paid out – including expenses and staff wages should be published monthly. This idea never progressed beyond the asking stage.
This, and other issues reached a head for me on Friday night when I was asked to take part in the telethon to raise money even though I didn’t know entirely where the previous public money had gone to.
I should add I refused point blank to take part in the first telethon in early November before the station had even launched. Not only was I unimpressed with some of the content of that telethon, as a representation of TPV, but I felt there was something wrong in asking the public for more money BEFORE they had seen even one programme.
So it was that I was not happy to do this latest telethon but I did it because I wanted TPV to succeed.
Despite my misgivings, I put my heart into it including organising a Question Time-style panel and a film recorded on New Year’s Eve about people who are doing important activism to make positive changes to our world.
I was, and remain, proud of this input – and output – and all the people involved in making this happen and all for only the petrol money to cover the filming. ” To continue reading, click here
I will not volunteer my time to a radio station that has an abusive staff and a less than professional platform.
I will update you on where your donations and contributions to radio stations and organizations really goes?
Hint: The money does not go to the hosts and journalists.(I will report on this later.)
How many hosts were banned from the airwaves in 2013 alone? (I will follow up on this as well and give a descriptive and alarming report.)
Listen folks, I am still learning to crawl, and that’s okay. I will not tolerate injustice, liars and thieves and those demonic forces that have been having a hay day on planet earth. Together we are all bigger than that, we are unique, we have evolved, some quicker than others, but this does not concern me.
WE ARE ALL MASTERS in our own right peeps.
WE ARE STILL STANDING.
WE ARE MORE THAN JUST SURVIVORS.
WE ARE LIGHT. (ONLY light can expose the dark corners of the matrix.)
UPDATE PIECE to be released this week.
Now let’s talk about my shows with David Icke’s THE PEOPLE’s VOICE. What happened to my show with TPV that was to begin in November of 2013? What is going on with THE PEOPLE’s Voice? You are not going to like this; I will have the story up later today, so stay tuned. I want to thank journalist Sonia Poulton who has given me the courage to share my experience at TPV and for publicly coming forward with the same issues that I have had.
