THERE IS A PERSISTENT INTERNET RUMOR THAT ´SOMETHING´ IS ABOUT TO BE ANNOUNCED, PERHAPS ON CNN AT ABOUT 10:30 WESTERN TIME THIS EVENING. THE HIGH SIDE IS BETTING ´NESARA´...THE LOW SIDE IS LOOKING FOR MARTIAL LAW.

IS IT REAL? DON´T HAVE A CLUE. But purportedly 147,000 Americans have already been rounded up by the Homeland Gulag. And the Stock Market reportedly went into freefall today AND heard they shut it down 9 minutes before closing.

Anyway, it is a very loud Rumor, this announcement. And this is Rumor Mill News. If nothing else, the mass energy of ANTICIPATION will create SOMETHING OF NOTE!

Snared by a cybercult queen
SEAN ROBINSON; The News Tribune

Shaini Goodwin lies like a lover, and people pay to listen.

Her whispers promise the irresistible: peace, wealth and forgiven credit card debt.


She is a star only the Internet could create - queen of a cybercult, architect of a conspiracy theory built on the ruins of deceit. Every day, typing at a computer or speaking on the phone, she lures disciples to a bewitching creed, and pumps new life into a dead scam that suckered thousands.


Her words are soft and sharp, insistent and insolent, understanding and unyielding. From her South Sound double-wide, she peddles a myth that blends old grift, New Age sermon and political activism into a mixture one historian of confidence games calls "magnificent."

Most of her readers don´t know who she is. On the Internet, she writes under an increasingly famous pseudonym: Dove of Oneness.

Editor´s Note:
This is part 1 of a two-part series. See part 2.

Hello, Dear Friends and White Knights.


The greeting heads every report she writes. Each ends with the same pleasant farewell:


Blessings and love, Dove of Oneness.


She says she does not lie, that she does not lead a cult, that she is simply a political activist on a spiritual mission, trying to make the world a better place.


"A lot of people who are on spiritual missions ask for help," she says. "People pledge their lives to make a difference in the world. You cannot live a normal life and do what I do."


At Dove´s decree, thousands of her followers send letters, postcards and e-mails to the U.S. Supreme Court, the Pentagon, Congress and the halls of international justice. They wave banners, pass out fliers and hold demonstrations on three continents, demanding announcement of a secret law that doesn´t exist, anticipating the delivery of easy fortunes that never come.


Some have been conned before. They are being conned again, but telling them is useless. They ignore weary government officials who repeatedly say there is no secret law to announce. They scorn experts in fraud and high finance who tell them they´re chasing shadows.


Instead, they put their trust in Goodwin, 57, who has declared bankruptcy at least once, owes the IRS $12,000 and lives in her ailing mother´s mobile home in Shelton.


Her latest venture might be more profitable. She sells false hope.


It´s not a crime. It´s a corporation. Goodwin never mentions it to her followers, but she has a Washington state business license, granted in 2002 for a $20 fee. Her corporate category - computer services. Her corporate name - Dove. Her corporate address - a hole-in-the-wall mail drop in Olympia.


This is where her followers send money, addressed to her Internet persona. Now and then, she asks for "gifts" to cover the costs of her daily "Dove Reports." For those who send such indulgences, she provides explicit instructions:


"Please address your envelope EXACTLY as above or your envelope may not be delivered," she writes. "Also, please REPLY to this message telling me you are sending me a financial gift. You may make checks or money orders payable to ´Dove.´"


It´s legal. No law prevents her from waving a cardboard sign on the shoulder of the information highway. The money comes - how much, only Goodwin knows, and she isn´t telling. She says she asks for money only when she really needs it. If she lives high, she hides it well. The mobile home is no mansion.


But money isn´t the only gift she receives. She also harvests something equally precious: believers.


The secret law


Four weeks ago, as filmmaker Michael Moore´s "Fahrenheit 9/11" opened across the nation, Goodwin´s acolytes stood by theater doors, handing out sheets of paper headed with a mysterious acronym - NESARA.


The word appears on purple fliers stacked on a shelf outside an Olympia cafe; on banners unfurled weekly at the World Court in The Netherlands; on signs carried by demonstrators in Texas, Chicago and South America; scrawled in the sand on beaches in Australia; and on the sides of rolling billboards in Washington, D.C.


It stands for the secret law, the one Dove claims Congress passed four years ago. The one that abolishes income taxes, forgives mortgages, zeroes out credit cards and declares peace.


The media can´t talk about it, she says. Only Dove knows the truth about NESARA, and as she solemnly explains, it´s dangerous information. That´s why she has a secret identity.


"Hardly anyone knows my name," she says. "I´m the Deep Throat of the Northwest."


She shows up on radio occasionally, giving interviews to late-night talk show hosts across America who chat about crop circles, UFOs and conspiracy theories. In those broadcasts, she claims connections with highly placed sources among leaders of government and high finance, and knowledge of a war between the forces of good and evil over the secret NESARA law.


She has embroidered the saga for the last four years, writing more than 1,000 Internet reports, recording hundreds of "voice reports" on a Seattle telephone line, giving interviews on radio stations from Alaska to Vermont.


She claims more than 15,000 subscribers to her reports, and 300,000 readers worldwide. Between 5,000 and 10,000 of them are in Western Washington. The numbers cannot be verified, but her online presence suggests an international following. Her reports are translated into Dutch, Korean, German, French and Spanish, and published on Web sites based in America, Canada and Europe.


Her long-running tale is a curtain - a veil that covers a con. She waves the so-called secret law like a winning lottery ticket, telling her followers its provisions will grant them the wealth they were once promised by an Illinois grifter.


The scam that started it all


The grifter is Clyde Hood, a retired electrician from Mattoon, Ill. He´s serving a 14-year sentence in federal prison for mail fraud, wire fraud and money laundering.


A decade ago, Hood created an investment fraud scam called Omega. Dove almost never mentions Omega these days, but without it, her celebrity and her cybercult might not exist.


Omega robbed thousands of people, including South Sound residents, of at least $12.5 million. That was the traceable part. Federal attorneys and investigators who prosecuted Hood and 18 co-conspirators think the real number was greater - at least $20 million, perhaps $50 million.


In 1994, Hood started telling a story to Midwestern churchgoers. He said he´d worked for Fortune 500 companies, been in the investment business for 15 or 16 years, owned a foreign bank. He had become an expert in offshore trading, European high-yield investment programs and prime bank notes. He could do a $250 million deal in the morning and again in the afternoon, four times a week.


"I´m the only one with control," he said. "I´m the only one with the collateral account, I´m the one with the fiduciary bank. There are only seven or eight people in the world that can do all this."


With a nod to his Christian audience, he said a vision from God came to him during a business trip in Hong Kong: It told him to help the little people, and do a big trade for humanitarian causes. For that, he had formed a company called Omega Trust and Trading Ltd. He was offering hardworking people a chance to reap their share of "the Lord´s storehouse."


They could buy Omega "units" for $100 apiece. Under Hood´s supervision, each unit would "roll" for 275 days, with a 50-to-1 return. Investors could let it "roll" again, for another 275 days, again at 50 to 1. After that, they could do one more roll, but that was all.


For onlookers, the math wasn´t too hard to figure. In less than three years, $100 could become $12.5 million.


Hood sealed the deal by sending investors an official-looking document called a "private party loan agreement." They even got receipts.


Thousands of people fell for his pitch. Later, he admitted it was bull.


"Did you get a vision, an actual vision from the Lord?" a federal prosecutor asked Hood in 2001.


"No," he said. "I did not."


"Have you ever worked for a Fortune 500 company as a trader?" the prosecutor asked later.


"No," Hood said.


"What is Omega?"


"It´s a scam."


The loan agreements were worthless. "Prime bank notes" didn´t exist. Hood didn´t own a bank and had no experience in finance - just a few financial terms picked up from wealthy friends, and the knowledge that others had engineered the same swindle.


"There´s other programs similar, and I just picked up on it and thought I had something I could work," he said in court testimony.


Omega lured suckers from all 50 states and a few foreign countries. Dove was one of them. She says she bought two units in 1998 after learning about the program through a friend in the town of Rainier.


She says she began publishing Internet reports in November 1999. In those early writings, she called herself an Omega investor, still waiting for her "prosperity deliveries" like everyone else. She named Hood and his allies and described her contacts with them.


The Omega pitch spread by word of mouth, through relatives and friends. Hood and four confederates created a network of phone lines in 17 area codes. Omega investors could hear phony, prerecorded "updates" from Hood, explaining Omega´s status, and why promised fortunes weren´t being delivered.


It worked for six years. From 1994 to 2000, Hood got by with excuses.


"Omega has been interrupted due to some unforeseen financial conflicts," he said in a June 3, 1996, phone message, typical of his style. "These situations or those situations should be completed on June 17, 1996. And the banks then will continue to process your checks and credit cards."


Scores of similar messages explained more delays. The deliveries, always a few weeks or months away, never came.


Meanwhile, the money for new Omega units poured in. Hood´s four "coordinators," a handful of allies who collected money for Omega shares, piled cash, cashier´s checks and money orders into cardboard boxes. The biggest producers collected between $60,000 and $100,000 per week.


They laundered the money through banks in Texas, California, Illinois and the United Arab Emirates, then spent it on themselves. Hood bought a fleet of classic cars, and handed out interest-free loans to friends and family members who bought houses and businesses.


The messenger


Washington was an Omega stronghold. Only California and Texas ranked higher in the list of documented victims. Within the state, the majority of victims lived in and around Yelm.


"It proliferated throughout this entire town," said resident Emily French, whose mother gave $1,100 to Omega.


"It was just by word of mouth," said Rainier resident Frances Motyer, who lost $4,500. "Some friends of ours told us, and when we turned around to talk to other people about it, they already knew."


The victims didn´t always fit the stereotype of elderly shut-ins wooed by smooth-talking grifters. Joseph Dispenza, a chiropractor from Rainier, gave $11,700 to Omega. He thought it sounded legitimate.


A Seattle-based tax attorney with a Yelm address gave Omega $280,000, the largest documented restitution claim filed in the Omega case.


Her name is Ruth Sparrow, and she works for Garvey Schubert Barer, a Seattle law firm. Her biography on the firm´s Web site states she spent 14 years in the tax department of a Philadelphia law firm and describes her as having "significant experience in federal income tax matters concerning corporations, partnerships and individuals in business and real estate transactions."


Sparrow refused to discuss Omega when reached by The News Tribune.


Ramtha


As he gathered Omega´s threads, Esteban "Steve" Sanchez, the assistant U.S. attorney in Urbana, Ill., who prosecuted the case, noticed the Yelm connection. He realized several victims were linked to JZ Knight, the ethereal New Age guru who claims to "channel" the spirit of a 40,000-year-old warrior called Ramtha.


"I cannot tell you what, if any, direct relationship there was between this person in Yelm, Washington, and Clyde Hood," Sanchez said of Knight. "We knew that there were people associated with her that apparently had invested in Omega, but that was not an angle that we wanted to pursue, because apparently it´s very difficult to pursue that angle."


Omega was an open secret at Knight´s Ramtha School of Enlightenment, four former students say. They asked not to be named, citing the fear of legal retaliation from Knight, who requires students to sign nondisclosure agreements.


"That´s how I became involved in it, was through the school," one student said. "I was involved in it and practically everybody else I knew at the school was involved in it. There were tons of people involved in this on just a cash basis. People were sending in cash - cash with no paperwork, no receipt, no nothing. People were promised their money was going to come in before the next snowfall."


The students say Knight never endorsed or promoted Omega. Some recall her telling students to cultivate an "abundance mentality" if the promised fortunes ever came.


Knight did not respond directly to requests for comment from The News Tribune. Greg Simmons, a Ramtha school spokesman, acknowledged Omega was discussed informally among students at the school. When asked whether Knight lost money in Omega, Simmons would not comment.


In the late 1990s, as Omega reached its peak, Shaini Goodwin was living near Yelm, in a gated community called Clearwood.


She had taken classes at the Ramtha school in the late 1980s and later claimed to be a kind of channeler herself, according to those who know her. She sprinkles her daily Dove reports with frequent references to the "Ascended Masters" and "the Illuminati," common figures in New Age teachings.


Dove´s mission


In her early Internet messages as Dove, she claimed access to secret information.


"Two new pieces of info suggest that important strides forward are being made," she wrote March 20, 2000. "You are well advised to GET READY. I have personally been reprogramming my old ideas about prosperity so that I am ready to wisely steward this great abundance."


The News Tribune interviewed 12 Omega victims, including current and former Washington residents. Most said they had heard of Dove through her Internet reports. A few remember Goodwin. None recalls her selling Omega units, and Goodwin says she never sold any. Sanchez found no evidence of it, though he didn´t know Dove´s real name.


She rose as Omega fell. By 1999, Hood´s prerecorded excuses were growing more desperate. The feds were on his trail, and he knew it.


His explanations got spooky: The government was interfering with the deal, and "numerous individuals and entities" wanted to see the program fail.


When investors complained or discussed the delays in the chat rooms, he attacked them for spreading rumors, and warned them that they were jeopardizing Omega and their fortunes.


The conspiracy talk played like a dream with Omega followers. They knew about secrecy. They sent money wrapped in aluminum foil and used private mail carriers, believing the government would have more trouble tracking it. Clyde and the others had warned them the government and other powerful interests would try to get in the way. Now it was happening.


The loose network of Hood´s allies, hangers-on and true believers fed the rumor mill. Messages preaching patience filled the chat rooms and the boards. Everyone just needed to stay calm, to remember the program would fund.


One key source of soothing messages was Dove, who wrote with a distinctive voice and gradually gained a following.


"I know that I am receiving information because the divine power behind getting Omega to us all wants the group prayers to continue," she wrote in a message posted July 17, 2000. "So I have been given the mission of passing on as much information as I can without jeopardizing the safety of the processes for our benefit."


Many Omega-related bulletin boards and chat rooms have shut down since the Omega trials, but a few fragments survive. The messages reveal a mishmash of anxious victims and wannabe con artists hitching a ride on the Omega idea.


Some posters headlined messages with obvious come-ons ("I WAS PAID TODAY ... THIS IS HOT"). Others tried the sober approach ("TAKE A SERIOUS LOOK AT THIS PROGRAM, HAS TREMENDOUS BENEFITS AND POTENTIAL"). Some offered plaintive stories of sick relatives, spouses and children.


Some of the messengers weren´t working for Hood. He didn´t collect money from them and had no way of knowing what they were doing. During the Omega trials, he talked about his freelance imitators.


"So some people could hear of Omega, go out and try to copy what you were doing?" a judge asked.


"Yes," Hood said.


"And then that money, you have no idea what happened to it?"


"No. Do not."


The News Tribune tried to interview Hood, but he didn´t answer letters or phone messages. His prison counselor in Michigan said he didn´t want to talk.


´The dark agenda´


In the summer of 2000, as investigators closed in on Hood, Goodwin reported new plots on the Internet boards.


As Dove, she cited information from unnamed sources, and described secret struggles among the world´s financial elites. Beginning sentences with "I have been told," she said a major European bank had come to Omega´s rescue, but a major U.S. bank was fighting the program "with every trick and delay possible."


U.S. Supreme Court justices were on Omega´s side. An important judge from the East Coast was fighting on their behalf. A group she called the White Knights was waging war against powerful enemies she began to call "the dark agenda."


Between such ominous reports, she called for group prayers and positive thinking. She wrote lengthy instructions that explained how to handle large sums of money when they arrived. She talked about how she would spend her own money once she received it: She would give large gifts to humanitarian causes.


Periodically, she reported "confirmations" - people who had received their money in sprinkles in one part of the country or another. The names couldn´t be revealed, for privacy reasons, she said.


Over and over, she told Omega investors that prosperity deliveries would arrive any day. She and others sometimes referred to Omega in a kind of typewritten code, mixing numbers and numerals, calling it "O" or "the big O." On July 26, 2000, she said members of "the big pr0gram" could expect deliveries by July 31. On Aug, 4, she said deliveries were imminent. On Aug. 7, she said deliveries were scheduled for the end of the week.


Soon, she was pitching an "e-group." Readers could subscribe for free and get regular updates from her.


Omega investors, hungry for any information, devoured her messages. She quickly claimed more than 1,000 subscribers. Her reports started showing up more frequently.


Speculation about her identity fizzed. "Who was she?" other writers asked. A few flamed her on the bulletin boards. She fired back in regal fashion.


"My main sources include very important people whose responsibilities require their presence in the most secret and most important activities of this country and all the major countries in the world," she wrote. "My personal relationships to some key people have caused me to be chosen to be the spokesperson to the lenders."


The parade queen


The real story was less glamorous.


She was born Candace Darlene Goodwin on May 4, 1947, and grew up in McCleary, a small town east of Aberdeen in Grays Harbor County.


The oldest of four children, she was dark-eyed and pretty. In 1962 she was crowned queen of the annual McCleary Bear Festival. The photo made the front page of the now-defunct Elma Chronicle.


Candy Goodwin attended Elma High School, and graduated in 1965. She studied French and made good grades. She joined the pep club. Her high school classmates liked her, and she had lots of friends.


"Very outgoing, vivacious, good sense of humor - I picture her smiling," said classmate Karen Olson, whose maiden name was Basset.


After graduation, Goodwin married but later divorced. There weren´t any children. She moved on alone. Boyfriends came and went.


For a few years in the mid-1970s, she lived in Minnesota and worked for a computer company. She came back to Washington and, in 1980, landed a job with the state Department of Social and Health Services as a computer specialist. For the next decade, she bounced between state employment and private business, sometimes living with relatives.


She tried to freelance as a computer consultant, but didn´t do well. She got interested in New Age philosophy. JoAnn Witt, Goodwin´s aunt, says Candy always was "a little different."


In March 1988, she linked up with a Delaware corporation called EAN Corp., and asked family and friends to invest $1,000 in start-up money. She bought a new truck in early 1989 and listed her corporate salary as $5,000 a month on the loan application.


Delaware state records show EAN didn´t make a dime. Goodwin says the company´s owner deceived her and stopped paying her salary. On July 16, 1989, Goodwin filed for bankruptcy in Tacoma.


She erased more than $20,000 in maxed-out credit cards, kept the truck and went back to state employment for three years as a computer information consultant.


In 1992, she resigned, moved to Port Angeles, and eventually changed her name from Candace to Shaini. Goodwin says she left her job because a concussion from a car accident made working too difficult.


In 1995, an ex-boyfriend named Larry Tipton sought a protection order against Goodwin in Clallam County and accused her of harassment - peeking in his windows, calling him repeatedly and appearing in places where he could not avoid her. Goodwin disputed the claims. She says Tipton was depressed and suicidal and that she was just trying to keep an eye on him. A judge granted the restraining order.


Tipton hasn´t spoken to Goodwin in several years. He said he did not know about her Dove pseudonym or her Internet celebrity.


"She´s a wonderful, vivacious woman, but her views are a little bit out there," he says. "She´s very bright - she´ll tie you in knots. If you want to meet a character, meet Shaini."


In 1997, the IRS filed a lien against Goodwin, seeking $12,000 in unpaid taxes dating from 1991 to 1994. The agency does not lift liens until the debt is repaid in full. As of June, Thurston County court records show the lien remains active.


Goodwin says she was audited in the early 1990s and says she thinks she paid those bills. She told The News Tribune she hadn´t seen the lien and gives it no credence. She says the IRS is an illegal organization and its actions have nothing to do with her "work." She says she has never mentioned her bankruptcy to her readers because it´s "irrelevant."


The messenger


In August 2000, federal investigators smashed Omega. Steve Sanchez filed indictments against Hood and 18 co-conspirators, charging multiple counts of wire fraud, mail fraud and conspiracy.


On Aug. 29, the day after the indictments were announced, Dove posted a message:


"Tonight we were told by a very high intelligence agency source that this whole thing in Illinois ´has been staged´ to try to stop funding! However, this case in Illinois TOTALLY LACKS any ability to stop funding. It´s almost a comedy, because the whole case will disappear instantly - VERY SOON."


She added a warning to worried Omega investors seeking information about the case.


"STAY AWAY FROM THE WEBSITE that has information on this case!!!" she wrote. "You will be tracked if you go to that website. And, absolutely avoid filling out any complaints - you could lose your funding if you do that!"


The case didn´t disappear.


Sanchez won 18 convictions. The sole exception was Michael Kodosky, one of Hood´s key lieutenants. He died before his trial began, from complications related to diabetes. Before his death, Kodosky entered a guilty plea.


Dove claims Omega´s enemies, including the government, killed Kodosky with slow-acting poison. In her reports, she scoffed at the "Urbana soap opera."


She claimed Omega wasn´t the only program affected by battles among the financial elites. At least 50 more "prosperity programs" were in play. Soon, all of them would be triggered by the announcement of a secret law passed by Congress. She called it NESARA - an acronym for the National Economic Stabilization and Recovery Act.


The law forgave debt and eliminated taxes. It changed the banking system and shifted the backing for the nation´s currency, she claimed. New, colorful bills printed by the U.S. Mint were proof. But no members of Congress could admit the law´s existence, she said. They were bound to secrecy by a gag order from the U.S. Supreme Court, and violations were punishable by death. Group prayers were needed to hasten the law´s announcement.


She had taken Hood´s idea and transformed it. Omega no longer was a simple investment, but an article of faith. She no longer was the messenger for one failed prosperity program, but scores. She made it clear she was the only voice, the designated messenger, for every one of them. She made it clear she was the only one who knew the truth about NESARA.


The man who created NESARA


The claim shocked Harvey Barnard, 62, an engineer, consultant and teacher from Louisiana who wrote NESARA 13 years ago during an academic daydream.


While fooling around with mathematical formulas applied to economics, he decided the American economy was fundamentally unstable. So he came up with new formulas, translated them into legal language and wrote a bill.


"It was just an exercise to see if I could do it," he says.


Barnard printed 1,000 copies and sent them to every member of Congress. At first, he figured the idea was so obvious, he´d have to wait about a week for the bill to pass. Unfortunately, no one was interested in saving the economy. He still pitches the idea, and provides copies of his bill on his Web site. But no one has ever sponsored it.


The rumors from Dove suggested otherwise - that the law had been secretly passed. Dove started referring to NESARA by name, and directing readers to Barnard´s Web site. The hits jumped and people started e-mailing questions. Barnard was pleased by the interest, but puzzled by claims that NESARA had passed.


At first, he replied to messages with gentle debunking. He pointed readers to official records of congressional actions, and asked them to look for themselves. NESARA hadn´t been introduced, let alone passed. It was unlikely, he said, that every member of Congress, thousands of aides and the media would conspire to keep such a thing secret.


"If you believe any of that, you might also want to start looking for ocean front property in Nebraska," he wrote.


Indifferent to Barnard´s message, Dove charged ahead, giving more details about what NESARA would accomplish, including forgiveness of mortgage and credit card debt. Subscriptions to her e-group rose above 2,000.


Barnard did some more research, discovered the clusters of Omega bulletin boards and read news stories about the case. He realized people were attaching his brainchild to a scam.


Part of him wondered whether this was a deliberate disinformation campaign to discredit his idea. The other part wondered if these rumors came from somebody wearing a tinfoil hat.


"Two different explanations," he says. "The simpler one is probably more nearly correct."


Again, he responded to the streams of questions, this time with a tougher tone.


"Many people who write to us seem to believe we are somehow connected with various financial schemes," he wrote. "At least some people are representing or claiming such an idea. We cannot vouch for the validity of those schemes, nor do we care to investigate."


To rumors of debt forgiveness, Barnard responded with specifics. That wasn´t how his bill worked. True, it would change certain banking laws, but no loans would be forgiven.


"We really do not know how to dispel such rumors other than refute them, but you can help by not forwarding the rumors to others," he wrote.


When people relayed Barnard´s messages to Dove, she dismissed them. It was obvious that the NESARA people couldn´t discuss what was happening. They weren´t talking to her high-level sources. On April 8, 2001, she explained it all.


"WHY would the people at the NESARA website commit ´TREASON punishable by DEATH´ by telling anyone who writes them that NESARA secretly passed in March, 2000?" she wrote. "Leave the NESARA people alone - you are showing your ignorance by asking them to commit TREASON."


Confessions


On April 10, 2001, Clyde Hood crumbled. In the Illinois federal court, he pleaded guilty to mail fraud, wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. He agreed to testify against his co-conspirators.


The chat rooms and bulletin boards buzzed. Dove and other Omega supporters posted hundreds of messages that suggested the program would still pay.


On April 13, 2001, Dove hinted that Hood´s guilty pleas were part of a conspiracy to deny investors their money. His confessions were a sham; the anti-Omega cartel was forcing him to lie, to prevent the announcement of the secret law.


"CH knows the whole Illinois court thing is just a smoke-screen, " she wrote, and added a sinister explanation:


"So, WHO benefits from the smoke-screen?" she asked. "Well, WHO wants the ´general populace´ to believe these programs don´t exist? WHO puts out this fraudulent info? The top world bankers, who have controlled our money system through the Fed, are the ones who want the general populace to believe these programs don´t exist. Why? To keep these programs just for the ´RICH,´ who have always had access to these huge money makers."


Her reports generated comments and fierce debates about the quality of her claimed sources. Other Omega supporters began to criticize her, saying she was jeopardizing their fortunes.


On April 14, she again took aim at fact-checking skeptics who couldn´t understand why Barnard and the NESARA Web site kept saying the law hadn´t been passed.


"QUIT bothering the people at NESARA - and quit sending me emails about how YOU ´think´ you got the truth about the SECRET law," she wrote. "It´s ridiculous for you to think you can just send an email and get the truth about a SECRET law. Congress has been under a STRICT GAG ORDER about this secret law. So, Quit Wasting my time sending me emails on this."


In the summer of 2001, Hood began to sing. During two trials of Omega conspirators, he spilled it all - how he had devised the scheme, how he knew it would never pay, the private mail carriers, the laundered money, the phony update lines, the stories of government interference dreamed up to dupe investors.


"I didn´t really realize how big a liar I was," he said.


Meanwhile, federal attorneys in Illinois tried to help Omega victims get their money back. The antique cars, property and other assets bought with Omega money were seized and sold. Victims were encouraged to file restitution claims.

Re: Affirmation: NESARA and First Contact Updates.
The attorneys ran into a problem. Many investors refused to file, refused to even talk to government investigators. The problem was the Internet, and the never-ending stream of rumors led by Dove and others that urged Omega victims to clam up.


"All this miscommunication, all this misinformation," Sanchez said. "Everybody kept saying, ´I´m told that it´s gonna pay tomorrow, so I´m not talking to you.´ No matter how hard we tried to persuade people that the information being put out there was erroneous, people didn´t want to believe it. We fought for a long time to find somebody who did not distrust the government - somebody who believed that they had been defrauded."


Hood´s former attorney, Douglas McNabb, received phone calls and e-mails from Omega investors for months after the trials ended. They wanted the truth - the real truth.


McNabb told them that Hood said Omega was a scam. He had testified to it in open court.


The callers politely said they understood. They figured Clyde had to say that, just to cut his exposure. But when would Omega pay?


"Some of these people, they just really, really believe it," McNabb said. "That´s why these people are so susceptible to being victimized again."


It´s true, according to experts: For some reason, being defrauded affects the victim like a drug.


"A very well-known phenomenon," says Andreas Schroeder, co-chairman of the creative writing department at the University of British Columbia and author of several books on scam artists and confidence games.


"People who have been suckered once are your very best bet to be suckered again. You´d think they´d be the last people willing to be conned. Nope. It´s almost as if you´re genetically prone to believing that kind of stuff. Once you´ve gone one step of the way, there´s no reverse - it´s only forward."


Fame


On Sept. 11, 2001, hours after planes hijacked by terrorists struck the World Trade Center and Pentagon, Dove posted the message that made her a star.


"The three targets today were ALL connected to NESARA and the banking changes. I just learned that at 9:00 a.m. in New York this morning, there was an IMPORTANT banking activity set to be activated in the IMF international banking computer center in the World Trade Center!" she wrote. "This was obviously WHY the World Trade Center was attacked TODAY at just before and after 9:00 a.m.! ... The orders for these plane attacks came from U.S. citizens who are trying to stop our deliveries/funding and NESARA."


The impact on the Internet was electric. Here was a new rumor to chew. Almost immediately, Dove´s message appeared on every Omega bulletin board, and leapfrogged to other sites devoted to conspiracy theory.


In Illinois, assistant U.S. attorney Sanchez, who had continued to follow the doings of the Omeganites, read the message and turned away.


"Once I saw that, I said I´m not going to follow this anymore," he says.


From Louisiana, Harvey Barnard posted an angry message on his NESARA Web site.


"Pure idiocy," he wrote. "Such stories would be humorous if the tragedies of that infamous Tuesday had not happened. We find all such rumor-mongering to be despicable, and the nature of such messages is mindlessness at its worst."


Again, Dove waved off the criticism.


"What would you expect them to say?" she wrote.


With one stroke, Dove mixed con, conspiracy, terrorism, faith, finance and politics. Within a month, her e-group gained more than 1,000 subscribers.


"Brilliant," says Schroeder, the scam historian. "That´s cunning. That is definitely magnificent."

SIDEBAR: ANATOMY OF A CONSPIRACY THEORY



Shaini Goodwin, who calls herself Dove of Oneness, is the architect of a conspiracy theory that grew out of a financial scam. Here it is, in a nutshell:


•In 1998, she puts money into Omega, an investment fraud scheme that runs from 1994 to 2000 and robs victims of $20 million.


•Omega´s ringleader, Clyde Hood, confesses his crimes in 2001, and admits Omega is a scam.


•Goodwin writes Internet reports as "Dove," says Hood´s confession is a lie and that Omega is real. She claims a secret law called NESARA - the National Economic Security and Reformation Act - will unlock the wealth held in Omega and other "prosperity programs."


•Dove´s reports claim Congress secretly passed NESARA in 2000 but that leaders cannot reveal its existence because violating a U.S. Supreme Court gag order on NESARA is punishable by death.


•Dove claims the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, the East Coast sniper shootings and the Iraq war are diversions planned and plotted by the Bush administration to prevent NESARA´s announcement.


• According to Dove, once NESARA is announced, banking rules will change and "mass deliveries" from more than 60 "prosperity programs," including Omega, will arrive.




SIDEBAR: THE SECRET LAW ACCORDING TO DOVE



Despite facts to the contrary, Dove of Oneness insists Congress passed a secret law in 2000. Here´s what her Web site, www.nesara.us, says the secret NESARA law does:


•Forgives credit card, mortgage and other bank debt.


•Abolishes the IRS, creates a flat-rate sales tax.


•Initiates the U.S. Treasury Bank System, which absorbs the Federal Reserve, and new precious metals-backed U.S. Treasury currency.


•Restores constitutional law.


•Requires resignations of current administration to be replaced by NESARA president and vice president designates until new elections within 120 days.


•Requires the president designate to declare "peace," enabling international banking improvements to proceed; ends "U.S. aggressive military actions immediately, and many more improvements."



Coming Monday: Dove battles "the dark agenda"


Up against ´the dark agenda´: Shaini Goodwin says those who question her word risk the loss of their prosperity. She swears that those who deny the existence of the secret law NESARA are lying. She claims those who debunk her claims are tools of the CIA and other powerful forces. Still, her following is growing.




The feds are so pedantic with their scams, they just literally fall over you - IF YOU´RE PAYING ATTENTION. What is the name of this lady again?

Shaini Goodwin (CIA)

This is and always was - as I´ve been stating for years, a CIA Op. It´s not real. It´s a misdirect. A pack of farging lies. And look at her name. GOODWIN. Ooops.

Begin Channeled Material:

I will add a few more words now at this time, since I have been brought into these messages. We do still expect to have an announcement and arrest of United States leaders by the end of Friday (April 15). Things are moving well in this regard. This is a huge project. Also, do not wait to see many missing people being beamed out and transported to that other planet.

Those leaving need much time with family and friends and to prepare. In quite a few cases, family members are deciding to take that journey with their loved ones. Time is very needed in preparation. Do not all of you, when you make major decisions, need time in preparation of your moves? Each of these individuals have great needs and settlements of affairs to be taken care of. They are going to be transported in their bodies to the new planet, and as part of their rehabilitation, will have to be Way Showers on this new place. They need to say their good-byes. In fact, they will not leave until after the announcement of NESARA and first contact activities. To remove them immediately would create fear, because there are quite a few going.

We are seeing misteaching already about rapture on the planet, as some Star Nations have removed a few people for various reasons. Some are going to trial and some are just leaving Earth, their mission accomplished. We have advised these Star Nations to wait a bit before continuing this. The Internet is building up stories of these removals or leavings, as being "raptured". Those not "raptured" are feeling at odds, wondering what they have done to be "left behind". Those "left behind" novels did much harm.

Therefore, understand the above and await the proper timing. We do not want the news and the ministers suddenly mentioning people gone in great numbers. This has been the rapture teaching, that ones will come home and find family gone, or one driving a car will suddenly be removed, causing the car to go out of control. This is all pure hogwash, bluntly put.

End:

This was last night that I read this. I still have the link also. It´s the latest update to the fourwinds site that for some reason wont load. Now today I wake up to see a story about a roundup of 10,000 people. They were criminals as the story goes. Hmm what if what was said above is true and they have indeed been rounded up. The 10,000 ppl roundup would make a great cover...

To shorten the waiting time a bit here is the message from Hatonn which preceded the "urgency" report on the thread start.
Amazing and interesting!


Hatonn

My dear ones, is this the day, or is this just another day of living within the shadow of the illuminati? What would you choose for your reality? Would you choose to take yourself out of the shadow, or would you still remain where they have a hold over you?

I see that you have already stepped out of the shadow, and have walked into the light and are living that light, no matter what the day brings. I AM Hatonn, and with these words I give you a method by which you can choose your reality and sing it to the rooftops.

No matter what the day brings you can see that it is full of promise and full of dynamic energy that springs forth from a sense of joy and a sense of abundant thinking and living. This is a time for all of you to find within your hearts the wherewithal to create your every moment in intent and in promise of the future that you desire.

Where were you last night when the world was sleeping? What were you doing as the dreams wafted through the atmosphere? I can tell you what many of you were doing; I can present to you an example of some of the activities that were taking place as your bodies rested in bed.

One of you for instance rose from your physicalness and drifted with a purpose to the pinnacle that you had prepared the night before. With this drifting, you were observing the activities that were taking place in Washington DC. You were seeing some of the people there in the White House keeping very late hours and adjourning a meeting that is held deep in the recesses of the basement chambers. You saw several people there all gathered round a table inlaid with ivory. The chairs were gilt with gold and on the arms was the finest silk covering a thin layer of cushion.

The people there were somber faced and some had a rise of red on their faces. These ones didn’t realize that they were being observed; yet they felt a disturbance that countered their state of expectancy. What they felt was a sense of lightness that they could not shake, and that countered that which they were involved with. It threw them off, and caused them to be distracted.

You see these ones were involved in shenanigans that would serve to tumble a nation that had long been a foe to this one. They sought to find a way to deliver them from the face of the earth forever, with one push of the button.

We knew this meeting was taking place, and we had directed the one who rose from the sleep to drift over this scene. We knew that in observing this scene there would be ground upon which to direct her energies in the night of service she was to perform.

My dear ones, as this one we speak of found herself at her destination, she gained momentum and arrived in place at the same time that the ones in the basement came to a startling conclusion. They had decided on a plan of action, and the one who had observed had witnessed and taken in the plan *they set down, in entirety.

She then carried this information with her to the ship’s chambers and advised us of the plan. We then set in motion the forces we had enlisted on the ground, and immediately they were in place and applying the protection in force, so that this deed would not be carried out. Indeed, the ones in the basement did not even leave the room before the plan was dismantled and irrevocably deemed impossible to take place.

This is but one of the events that took place in the night. This is an example of what the illuminati do to divert attention from what they are facing in the hour of the day. They use events of a larger or lesser significance to shelter their plans that carry a deadlier implication to man.

We are prepared in this way to counter every move they make on this day. We are ready to serve them with the necessary papers to direct the efforts of their removal from the public acceptance of their positions. With the added strength of the lightworkers, we are able to develop the plans of evasion to the nth degree.

We know the energy of the day is loaded and expectant for those of you who live in the USA. We see the aura extend beyond the borders, and for the most part it is a dull color, due to the thoughts concerning this day. We already at this moment are able to go forward in the hours of this day and see bright spots popping up in that aura and spreading to extend into the dullness and encapture more spots of brightness.

This has the potential to expand so much that it will be one bright continual glow of light with the extended positive energy of all of you. You can, with your feelings of acceptance and love and compassion emit forth a beautiful glow of love for anything that comes your way today.

This does not in any way counter what you are expecting and hoping for. What it does is to provide an energy of acceptance that is open and free for the highest and best for the good of all to be created and manifest. This is the best thing that you can do with this day and for yourselves. To walk in joy and love and to accept what the day brings, knowing it is in the best interest of all.

We love you all so much, and we honor the journey you take and create. We feel the desire in your hearts, and we would dearly love to see what it is that you desire leap into manifestation. We suggest that you are what you desire, and you are the manifestation of your dreams.

The example we gave you is but one of the events that takes place in the night, and in your work you bring your reality to fruition, and the steps of the next day are set in the dreams of the night before. Follow them with open arms and a clear heart, for they are your destiny, and you live it every moment of your life.

I will see you once more in the dreamtime, and some day soon I will see you in the streets and homes of all who call us forth. That will be a grand day indeed.

Thank you dear commander Hatonn,

Dont be so lazy.

NESARA — the National Economic Security And Reformation Act — provides the following:

1. Restores Constitutional Law in the U.S. as the forefathers intended when they signed the Declaration of Independence.

2. Requires the current U.S. administration to resign their positions to allow a fresh start at the national level and installs Constitutionally acceptable NESARA President and Vice President Designates until new elections can take place within 120 days.

3. NESARA U.S. President Designate declares "peace" due to NESARA´s abolishing all unconstitutional "national states of emergency." All U.S. military aggressive actions will cease immediately.

4. Zeroing out credit card balances, forgiveness of mortgages and other bank debt as a remedy for 70 years of bank and government fraud.

5. Initiates the U.S. Treasury Bank System with new U.S. Treasury currency backed by precious metals. Bank personnel have already been trained on NESARA and the new currency is already in some bank vaults.

6. Abolishes income taxes in U.S. and creates a new national sales tax on new non-essential items as revenue for government.

Dove battles "the dark agenda"
Shaini Goodwin says those who question her word risk the loss of their prosperity. She swears that those who deny the existence of the secret law NESARA are lying. She claims those who debunk her claims are tools of the CIA and other powerful forces. Still, her following is growing.

The News Tribune/July 19, 2004
By Sean Robinson

It´s not easy keeping secrets. Sometimes Shaini Goodwin, aka "Dove of Oneness," wishes she didn´t know so many.

Life would be simpler.

She wouldn´t have to flood the Internet with reports that draw thousands of readers around the world. She wouldn´t have to write about a secret law called NESARA - the National Economic Security and Reformation Act.

Sometimes, she says, she wishes she´d never heard of NESARA. She claims Congress secretly passed it in 2000. The supposed law forgives mortgage and credit card debt, abolishes the IRS and declares peace - but she says a U.S. Supreme Court gag order prevents anyone from revealing it, under pain of death.

Goodwin says the gag order doesn´t apply to her, because she isn´t an "official person." Her self-appointed mission - revealing the truth about NESARA - forces her to write reports from her mobile home in Shelton, explaining that the Bush administration plotted the 9/11 attacks and the East Coast sniper slayings to prevent NESARA´s announcement.

The knowledge is a heavy burden. Without it, she wouldn´t have to fend off critics who scoff at her claims, call her the leader of a cybercult and charge that she links NESARA to the wealth promised by a financial scam. She wouldn´t have to call for demonstrations around the world, or ask her 15,000 readers for donations, sent to a mail drop in an Olympia strip mall.

It´s a price she´s willing to pay for the peace she says NESARA will bring.

"NESARA is the most important thing on the planet," she says.

Goodwin claims a powerful group called "White Knights" is fighting a secret war against "the Illuminati" over the secret law. Her regular updates cite secret sources from the highest levels of government and finance around the world.

She links her conspiracy theory to a proven con. Goodwin says NESARA will unlock the wealth allegedly held in more than 50 "prosperity programs." They include an investment fraud called Omega, run by a convicted con artist named Clyde Hood of Mattoon, Ill. In the mid-1990s the scheme robbed thousands of people of more than $20 million and led to the convictions of 18 conspirators for wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering.

Followers throughout the world believe Goodwin´s reports, subscribe to her Internet "e-group" and wave banners for her cause. They ignore government officials who tell them there is no secret law to announce, that Congress never passed it, that there is no gag order.

Goodwin dismisses critics and naysayers as tools of what she calls "the dark agenda." The Omega convictions were a sham, she says - a government plot to deprive people of their money. She says she is practicing political activism, that she tells the truth, that she doesn´t lead a cult.

Her followers don´t know she has registered a business to make collection of donations easier, that she has declared bankruptcy at least once, or that she owes the IRS $12,000. Most don´t even know her name, or that she´s a 57-year-old former parade queen from McCleary.
The Scheherazade factor

Goodwin didn´t make the pieces of her Byzantine puzzle.

Omega came from Hood, a retired Illinois electrician who created the investment fraud scheme in 1994. New Age jargon provided Goodwin´s rhetoric. The conspiracy theories were rusty boilerplate, covered by "The Da Vinci Code" author Dan Brown and others, volleyed around thousands of Internet sites. And the NESARA idea belonged to Harvey Barnard, a retired engineer in Louisiana who drafted a model bill 13 years ago as an academic exercise.

But the synthesis was Dove´s, and that´s what catches the trained eye of Andreas Schroeder, co-chairman of the creative writing department at the University of British Columbia, and author of several books on scam artists and confidence games.

Dove built a bridge from one scam to another, shifting from Omega´s unofficial chronicler to the keeper of the secret law. Schroeder likens the NESARA story to a famous con from the 1920s: the Drake Legacy.

For more than a decade, Oscar Hartzell, an Illinois farmer, convinced thousands of people that he controlled the $100 billion estate of Sir Francis Drake, the 16th-century pirate.

Hartzell went to London to make the con look good. He stayed there, sending letters to suckers back home that described his negotiations with the British government and the royal family, and the need for more public support and money to seal the deal.

He spent his days at the post office and his nights on liquor and women. He was convicted of fraud in 1934 and died nine years later. Before his trial, Hartzell´s believers raised more than $68,000 for his defense.

His method was as old as deceit. Richard Rayner, author of "Drake´s Fortune," a book on the scam, calls it "the Scheherazade factor," invoking the princess of the Arabian Nights who saved her life with stories.

Like Hartzell, Dove writes letters describing government plots too tangled to unravel. Like him, she denounces critics and skeptics. Like him, she urges her supporters to campaign for the unreal.

It keeps them distracted, Schroeder says. The best con artists turn passive victims into active supporters.

"You´re told to spend a tremendous amount of effort to get in on the fight and defend yourself," he says. "Join up with a bunch of other like-minded people to defend the enterprise. It keeps you busy, it keeps you involved, and because you´re chorusing, the din you create overwhelms anything that might be coming in through the other ear."
Misinformation

On Nov. 29, 2001, Dove instructed victims of the Omega scam not to file restitution claims seeking the return of their money.

"Since the whole court thing in Illinois was always part of the dark agenda opposition trying to brainwash program members, if you fill out that questionnaire, you are probably signing away your rights to your prosperity," she wrote.

In the same message she mentioned another Internet poster, Jennifer Lee, a California woman who adopted Dove´s methods but lacked her panache. Lee´s messages, also available on the Internet, are delivered by phone and quote liberally from Dove´s writings. Lee frequently asks her readers to send money - "donations" - to pay for her expenses.

In her Nov. 29 message, Dove endorsed Lee´s requests for donations, but distanced herself from such pleas.

"My own policy is to do my service of providing truth WITHOUT asking the Dove e-group members to donate money to help me," she wrote. Her e-group subscriber list climbed above 5,000.

Collectively, 355 Omega victims from 41 states and three countries filed restitution claims seeking more than $1.69 million.

Esteban "Steve" Sanchez, the assistant U.S. attorney in Illinois who prosecuted the Omega case, was disappointed. He knew the scam´s victims numbered in the thousands.

It was the Scheherazade factor, the unshakable faith of Omega investors, the rough magic of the con, nurtured by Dove. The victims weren´t talking - not in Illinois, and not in Yelm, where Goodwin then lived. Many Omega "investors" were clustered in the Thurston County city and surrounding communities.

Dove was hindering the restitution effort; it was a pain, but Sanchez and his attorneys chose not to chase her. They already had 19 criminal cases to prosecute.

"The misinformation was more of a thorn in our sides, as opposed to an evidentiary, crime-solving thing," he said. "We couldn´t figure out that she was taking any money. She was just misinforming people. That may be an issue of the First Amendment. She´s not forcing the listeners to believe what she says. These people are adults."

Louise Gilman, then a Yelm resident, invested $4,500 in Omega. She knew several others in the community who gave as much or more. As soon as she heard of the court case and the restitution program, she filed a claim. She knew others in Yelm who didn´t.

"So many people did not put in for a refund," said Gilman, who now lives in Oregon. "They thought the government was trying to get in on it. We didn´t know anybody who went in for restitutions. There´s so many lessons to be learned for people here - the truth really needs to be told. I have to say that the government protected us."

On Dec. 23, 2001, Dove posted a report shredding Barnard, the original author of the NESARA bill. His Web site was a sham, she said. Bush administration goons had taken control of it. Her opponents, including Barnard, were "dark agenda stooges."

Eventually Dove would change the name of the secret law, but preserve Barnard´s acronym. Instead of the National Economic Stabilization and Recovery Act, it became the National Economic Security and Reformation Act.

Barnard had written the NESARA proposal, nursed it for years and inched it toward the door of respectability, even getting an occasional sniff from politicians with a libertarian bent.

Now the idea no longer belonged to him.

He has taken to calling Goodwin´s reports "Dove droppings."
