Yesterday we talked about the dangers of giving oxygen to non-entities who are connected with the Hampstead SRA hoax. Coincidentally, just as we were putting the finishing touches on that post, we were alerted that Angela Power-Disney had started her much-vaunted (by her mostly) interview with Sean Maguire, the terminally gormless host of ‘Out of the Bag Radio’.
Angela may very well be a case in point about the whole “oxygen to unimportant people” maxim: when we first ran across her shortly after the hoax had gone public, she seemed to us a bit dim and ordinary but mostly harmless.
Gradually, though, she has managed to scramble over the bodies of her fallen former comrades—leading lights such as Belinda, Charlotte Ward, even Abe and Ella—to take on the role of de facto commander-in-chief of what remains of the Hampstead hoax.
We were interested when Angela confirmed a suspicion we’ve held for some time, which we touched on in yesterdays post: we believe that Thomas Dunn, the American über-Christian who plans to make his fortune selling Hampstead-themed t-shirts and other paraphernalia, is being informed and guided, if not overtly controlled, by Angela.
We know that she was in contact with him at least three years ago, when she was searching for a way to bring the Hampstead hoax to the much larger and more lucrative American market.
In the following video, made in late 2015/early 2016, and released in May 2016, she and Dunn map out details of her plan for him to come to the UK to “investigate” the case:
At about 17:50, Angela says, “There’s two people I want to connect you with, if you give me your dates when you’re coming over. Ray Savage, he’s the copper that went on record saying that he’d interviewed Ella for three hours and found her absolutely credible. I’ll send you a couple of links. Now he’s no longer a policeman, and he’s gone off on a bit of a new-age tangent…. And I just want to arrange some accommodation for you guys over there. I wish I had the funding to meet you”.
This does not sound like the first contact between Angela and Dunn; it has the ring of an ongoing conversation, and it’s clear that at that time, she was very keen to bring an American—any American who might be willing—to the UK.
Dunn hedges, saying that he has very limited time, that he’s busy wrapping up his film, and that he might not be able to come.
Noting that he’s thought about what they had previously said about him spending such a short time in London, he says, “It’s hard for me to justify spending $1,300–$1,500 on a ticket to come over for three or four days”.
Angela tries to tempt him with the promise of the upcoming CSA survivors’ march, and says, “I know Hampstead is worth it”.
It’s fascinating to watch her groom him: she plays on his Christian beliefs, talks about how they need his “professionalism” to help bring the situation in the UK to a broader audience, and emphasises that he could play an important role in giving a voice to previously unheard survivors.
He continues to hedge, and Angela makes one last attempt, telling him that if he could just flash the faces of RD’s children in the video he’s making, the UK hoaxer community would be terribly grateful. It’s clear that she desperately wants Dunn to open a channel to the U.S. audience of SRA believers.
Lies, half-truths, and manipulation
In her first video with Dunn, Angela tells him that Dr Hodes’ evidence, which would have clinched the case, was hidden from the judge. “And then when it was trashed, and it was quickly replaced by one of their medical people, who said oh, no no no, the methodology’s not reliable, you know”.
While a more sceptical person might question this (or even research it!), Dunn just nods, as though he expects this sort of thing.
Listening to Angela’s lies and half-truths about the Hampstead SRA hoax on Maguire’s show last night, we were struck by the ease with which lies and manipulative half-truths seemed to slip off her tongue:
Here are just a few:
Rupert Quaintance flew over from America to cover the story and investigate it, and he had his passport taken and he was gagged and all his computers taken and left in London and not allowed to work, and just left there on bail for a year and then imprisoned for five months for alleged harassment against the accused.
So Rupert was just arrested for nothing? It’s not as if he went to the primary school at the centre of the hoax and took a picture of himself in front of it, claimed to be armed with a knife (not a big deal in America, but a very big deal here), and then posted it to Facebook on the first morning of the new school term, right?
And we’re sure the police were just making up all that stuff about having found a spreadsheet on his computer containing the names, addresses, contact details, and children’s names of all the people Ella accused.
And then Jake Clarke was sectioned, he went to the doctor and said he was experiencing some depression and anxiety from the level of trolling that the Hampstead case comes with. It’s got a level of trolling that some of the hardiest internet people are shocked at. They make malicious videos and they stalk you and make threats, and it’s very intense.
They will—with myself, they dispatched about 50 poison pen letters all around Ireland, especially my community, my children’s schools, the Gardaí stations, the newspapers, my neighbours, you know, different people I’d worked with. They character-smeared and assassinated me, they were malicious with my children…
So Jake Clarke went to the doctor, experiencing similar in the UK, and instead of investigating these cyber-terrorists, they sectioned him. They said he was delusional. And one of the test questions for establishing if he was delusional was, “Do you believe 9-11 was an inside job?” ….And then if he said yes, which—I don’t know what he answered, but it’s like, you know, that’s a tick…so he was maliciously sectioned and force-medicated, for months, and then gagged, not allowed to address it.
Nothing about how Angela herself had been grooming Jake and encouraging him to post harassment on Facebook, nothing about how she and her hoaxer friends had made use of a mentally vulnerable young man for their own purposes…and certainly nothing about the fact that Jake’s family were trying desperately to keep him away from the hoaxers, for his own safety.
As for the alleged poison pen letters, we’ve addressed that issue many times. And each time Angela talks about it, she accuses us of having sent the letters to a different set of people.
Here’s a thought: We know Angela claims to have “dissociative identity disorder”, so perhaps one of her “alters” disapproves of her behaviour and sent the poison pen letters round as a kind of cry for help?
And what happened was, I actually stepped down from the case around March of this year, because I’d worked for three years on it, and it was taking such a big toll on my family, and my health, so I just said, ‘Look, I’ve done three years, I can’t do any more, I don’t know where the children are, we don’t seem to have got any justice, and then I think a week or two later, somebody sent me information of the father being found with the children online in a video, supposedly for an eBay award for entrepreneur of the year runner-up in 2017. Whether that was advertising or whether it was genuine, but he consciously chose to accept the free holiday to America and appear on their promotional video. With the children. And none of the other apparent winners, nobody else had their children there, just—I still can’t figure out if it was…
Had Angela bothered to look at the video, she might have noticed RD describing the moment when he announced to his children that they had won the eBay contest: “And I said, ‘Guys, you’ve won!'” Clearly, the business was built by the children, and RD was in the video as their chaperone. Duh.
Back to Dunn…
Given the current situation, we were most interested to hear Angela talk, albeit somewhat obliquely, about Dunn’s re-entry into the case:
There’s an American organisation that’s taken up the case. They’re a Christian group that have looked into Satanic ritual abuse for years and years and years. And they’ve taken up the Hampstead case. And they are, as there…more and more people are joining, they are just astounded as they look at the judge’s decree, after a 12-day fact-finding mission, they’re just astounded that it was allowed to happen. It was so illegal, it would befuddle the mind.
As we guessed, Angela has re-built the link with Dunn (if indeed they ever lost touch), and is now using him to do her dirty work. We can only guess how many more, er, inaccuracies she has been feeding him and his followers.
As commenter Surreal Hustle pointed out yesterday, when one looks at the situation from an epidemiological perspective, “infection control” becomes a paramount concern:
Part of Dunn’s putative empire of merchandising consists of stickers and drop cards. These are effectively items that spread an infection, an infection of belief in that the Hampstead hoax is not a hoax but a real satanic cult. People buying such material may in fact decide that they too would like to move into Hampstead hoax entrepreneur territory and start to manufacture their own cards. Alternatively Dunn may offer a multi-level-marketing (MLM) business model to purchasers whereby they receive commission for items they sell or sellers they recruit. I have seen this happen before in relation to cults and the progression of these small business is similar to an infection spreading.
We need to keep an epidemiological perspective in mind and to practice infection control. The complete control of infectious disease has been a struggle that has long preoccupied the human race. It is easier to control infection by isolating and treating infected individuals than it is to allow them to have access to a wider community and spread infection everywhere they go. Scamgela is a veritable Typhoid Mary in this respect and while Dunn is not a patient zero / index case he has been correctly identified as someone who is at risk of spreading infection to a massive population that is especially vulnerable to infection, namely the Christian conspiracy theorist element of US society.
“Typhoid Mary” is a very apt way to characterise Angela. Like the original Typhoid Mary, who refused to implement the basic hygiene measures which could have saved many lives, but instead travelled from household to household, killing her employers with the deadly disease she carried, Angela seems indifferent to the suffering she causes, but continues to spread the infection of lies wherever she goes.
We’re left to wonder how many of Dunn’s followers will be infected with Angela’s lies, whether directly via her comments on his videos, or indirectly via Dunn’s unquestioning belief in all that she says. Now that she’s scrambled to the top of the Hampstead hoax, she appears to be intent on spreading the infection to an entire new cohort of victims.
