A Demotion for Christopher Hartnett

Lots of activity by CMA chairman and founder Christopher Hartnett on Reddit in the week following publication of The Daily Beast (DB) article on February 24.

He continues to show traits of an angry narcissist of some kind, as I mentioned here. Confrontational screeds with disparaging attacks is his style. He left 20 comments between February 27 and March 1. His ‘GunPorn‘ photo was deleted around same period.

In the wake of the DB article and other developments it’s not only these new comments that reveal his state of mind: edits he’s made to older comments are especially interesting and worth recording here. I am sure Hartnett did not consider it’s possible his edits can be compared to the originals, as I will do below. I’m also including new audio clips from Hartnett’s 2019 internal CMA conference call which are relevant and important.

Hartnett did not like the DB article one bit and appears to be under impression it was sourced from Reddit and hence spends a lot of energy attacking the platform, its users and the journalist. Cult writer and undue influence expert Steven Hassan quoted in that article also gets admonished repeatedly.

There’s too much to include everything here. Some selections:

Hartnett knows a lot about “CULT dribble”

Hartnett’s crude lack of consideration and absence of empathy is all over the above Reddit comment: DB, Cheyenne Roundtree and Reddit are ‘raping McKayla again’ he says.

I don’t know where the $125 pricetag for pendants is from. The cheapest CMA currently sell is a small silver one for $149.99 which McKayla visibly doesn’t have. On the contrary she has at least two large pendants in gold and silver as I covered.

Hartnett again:

The people perpetuating nonsense are Hartnett and MJD by selling this moronic church which is a cult to McKayla and others.

Forums like Reddit aren’t cults: for one thing, opposing views are allowed and discussed as Hartnett is taking part in himself. Unlike in CMA where no signs of discontent or contrary views are entertained or published, and dissent and questions will get you excluded and silenced.

I’m posting here a new clip from the 2019 internal CMA conference call demonstrating Hartnett’s attitude to doubters and waverers:

28 October 2019 CMA internal call

There’s not a person on this call … who I know doesn’t love John more than practically anything else in creation. And we’re gonna start from there.

But if you really love him and you really want to see this be a multi-billion dollar enterprise, which it’s going to be regardless, and since we can’t fallow you, what we can do is put you out to pasture and not love you in the sense that you’re not part of the business, you’re not part of helping the world. But you will feel horrible because the moment you realize what is actually happening you will do anything in your power to make this happen because there’s nothing greater for anybody to do in the universe than what we’re doing right now.

There’s so many beings watching what’s happening now they wish they were in human bodies so they could help us. They wish they were here. And we’ve been given that, we’ve been given those human rights to be here, for whatever reason.

Christopher Hartnett

Lest anyone in CMA forget the greatest way to spend your life is helping MJD’s mission: they should be grateful they’re alive on Earth where they can effect the change MJD wants. Hartnett tells dissenters dead people are envious of their life. So fall in line, get back to the job and you won’t need to torment yourself at what you lost in CMA.

“Your dark shadow” in the previous Reddit quote brought to mind a YouTube comment I’ve had in back of my mind since I first saw it (video since deleted) which is overdue being shared on the blog:

Someone who attended a CMA event and regrets it.

Back to Reddit:

51,000 is an interesting number. Interesting because it shows how far CMA are from the 300,000 ‘souls’ Hartnett boasted he wanted to save two years ago. Another clip from his 2019 conference call with CMA higher-ups, which also gives a sense of the tone of voice his Reddit comments must have been written in:

“But why would anybody get in the way of anything good? You have to ask yourself this. Why is you so important? Why am I so important that we can stop John’s mission, how would you feel if you died and you were the one that was stopping people from their evolution? And because we get into our own heads, our own self-pity, our own problems that we then start to project that and muddy up the waters.

We want a clear, crystal diamond path to salvation for every one of the 300,000 souls we’re trying to do. And many of us are here on Earth only for that, and that’s all we’re gonna do. And we’re gonna do it with or without the people huffing. If you don’t help and you don’t like people being selfless when they’re working and you have to impose yourself on people then we’ll sit you down on the bench and we’ll be nice to you, we’ll say Hi to you, come to the events, you can get blessed and play your CDs by yourself and so be it.

And the moment you die you say “Oh my god, I was one of the 60 people on Earth out of 7.5 billion that had a chance for the most direct path on Earth to save humanity and I blew it!”

And you don’t want to feel that way believe me. And many of you have already felt that in many other lifetimes, you don’t want to feel like you blew it.

This is the lifetime that we’re gonna shine, this is the lifetime we’re gonna be our best self. John has given us blessing after blessing after blessing, many of us are such barbarians we don’t deserve this but he’s given to us none the less.

Hartnett, 28 October 2019

There’s a lot to digest there. I intend to write a dedicated post with full context what he’s talking about. But why 300,000 souls? I am clueless.

Back to Reddit, and Hartnett feverishly insists all healing is performed by God, Jesus, anyone besides MJD :

Link

And again:

Link

This insistence by Hartnett is mirrored in a new large disclaimer added to beginning of CMA’s About page:

Both are desperate to say MJD doesn’t do healing. But CMA and MJD have obviously said otherwise many times: the audio and other blatant evidence are all over my blog.

No individual or human being does healing for CMA” – this point we can agree on. MJD and his Elites’ inability to heal has never been in doubt outside CMA. But this poor attempt at a strong legal text doesn’t address the problem: MJD professes he can heal and he sells himself on those lies. He professes he talks to angels and knows of undiscovered microscopic parasites. He pretends to be called Master John Douglas. And CMA promote him, his ‘abilities’ and his ‘healing’ tools and seminars as ways to be healed.

We don’t want anyone to think any human person is doing the healing. All healing comes from God. We want to be clear about that without question.” – again this couldn’t be more false. Hartnett misses the point as he often does when defending MJD. No healing is taking place but is promoted through fake science, bogus testimonials, and brainwashing seminars. There are 100s of testimonials thanking MJD for healing which CMA spread through specific hashtags on social media, and encourage followers to thank and praise MJD for what he’s done for them. And again there is all the audio and promotional material I’ve posted.

But in fact we need go no further than the same About page to see Hartnett and the new disclaimer are contradicting themselves. A few sections down is:

Even if that highlighted line gets removed from the About page it will not remove the countless other times CMA and MJD have said he can heal. MJD appears to be a kind of Schrödinger’s Healer: a master healer while at same time doing no healing. A similiar paradox as CMA not being able to decide if MJD’s powers are based on science or faith.

“Healers” is an endemic belief among CMA followers, as I’ve shown many times. Here we see an Elite, ‘L’, completely forgetting CMA’s disclaimers about seeking professional medical care first:

Facebook, 20 April 2020

None of the other Elites in that comment thread ‘corrected’ L or reminded her MJD and his SFR tool are officially secondary options, not first port of call.

But CMA know ‘healer’ is a word fraught with legal issues. One example of CMA covering their backs is this change in description of so-called ‘F’ events, removing the title “Elite Healer”:

CMA website November 2019
CMA website March 2021

Back to Hartnett’s recent Reddit comments:

Link

Totally transparent” is false. As I’ve explained here and elsewhere there are no transparent donations made. CMA and SELF Foundation money is moved around a network of obscure companies, of which I shall be posting more about in the future.

You are weak secret hiding sauce” – one of Hartnett’s tamer insults. “Weak”, “snowflake”, “hater”, “virtue signaling” just some of the words Hartnett uses trying to defend CMA. Maybe he should have given the job instead to CMA’s “legal expert” Jeffrey Wagner – “one of the top legal minds of the world” supposedly.

Hartnett doesn’t disagree he talks like a gangster:

Link

Like a gangster on the lam, Hartnett may be having a meltdown seeing his machinations and co-conspirators falling apart. Gangsters need their day in court and jailtime.

Editor in Chief

Now a look at the edits I mentioned Hartnett has made to his old comments.

The edits show attemps to rewrite history: in an effort to decrease his apparent responsibilty and authority in CMA.

Edit #1

I am the Chairman of the Foundation” becomes “I am a member of the Foundation“:

These 3 screenshots were all taken at different times, ignore the “x hours/days/months ago” parts.

The 27 Nov 2020 comment above is the first comment by ‘tedhens’, boldy announcing himself as Chairman. Which tells us he is Hartnett (alongside additional evidence I’m leaving for a dedicated post.)

In the 24 Dec 2020 comment above he writes he’s “senior pastor”. I don’t remember ever hearing him called that before. Certainly a step down from Chairman. But still a typically overblown title from Hartnett.

On 28 Feb 2021, we seem to have a massive fall in Hartnett’s position in CMA. So great he feels the need to go back and edit his first comment to say he’s merely a “member”!

Hartnett’s choice of CMA identity on Reddit descends from Chairman to Senior Pastor to member, decreasing anyone’s ability to identify him personally (or so he thinks.)

This sequence of comments and edits show Hartnett wants to cover-up his identity and role. But it’s too late: it’s on record and the edit and man behind the account is known. And in truth his role hasn’t changed.

Edit #2

The Dec 24 comment above was also subjected to later editing on Feb 28, more damning than Edit #1.

I have the Church, not him. I am the senior pastor so if you have a beef, it should be with me and not him. He doesn’t touch the money, I do” becomes “He is the guest Pastor. So if you have a beef, it should be with our Church Council and not him. He doesn’t touch the money, we do.” :

These 2 screenshots were taken at different times, ignore the “x days/months ago” parts.

Red edit: Hartnett is trying to remove his admission of responsibilty for CMA’s money, passing it off to an imaginary “Church Council”. This “Church Council” may as well be Hartnett’s equivalent of MJD’s “master angels” – conjured-up entities to take credit for actual people’s actions. And what of his wife Linda Hartnett and Greta Huizenga, listed as treasurers of CMA and SELF?

In the blue edit, Hartnett removes the idea he’s the “senior pastor” and in its place he says MJD is “guest pastor”. This is Hartnett again insisting MJD is independent of CMA with no role besides a “guest” of the organization. “This organization is not Master John Douglas’s organization” he wrote on 27 Nov 2020. But it’s all lies. A setup to ultimately hide that CMA’s multi-million dollar revenue is funneled to MJD’s real-life self, contrary to strict regulations for 501(c)(3) charitable organizations.

The lie is proved in these next two damning clips from 2019’s internal conference call where Hartnett is speaking only to key CMA people. He makes it crystal clear MJD is the real power at top of the organization’s hierarchy. I was quite shocked how blatantly he was speaking of it, but remember he is not speaking to the public here. His audience was around 60 CMA Elites and other higher-ups. Please credit and link DFHM if you share:

28 October 2019 CMA internal call

Hartnett:

And when you say “I’m gonna go see John” or “I’m gonna go do this or that” you were talking to us. You’re not going anywhere around anybody. Nobody including me has credentials that were gonna supersede the organization that’s here and go directly to John. John is in charge. What he wants is there.

This is all divine, this is all being run by divinity. And you have the ability to scan at any given moment to see the truth of every single word I’m saying. Because this is not coming from us, we’re not making this up.

And we want you all to be there at the finish line. You can feel it, we’re ready to explode.

28 October 2019 CMA internal call

Hartnett:

We can be manipulated and we can be manipulative. We’ve done this for centuries. There were kingdoms, we had high priestesses, all types of people that were out there running all different civilizations. And now they come in and don’t understand why people don’t jump when they say something.

We have so many kings and queens in this group that we could either kill each other, bump into each other or we can fall in love and fall in line.

That line and love of path is like a triangle. If you could picture it in your head, and indulge me for a second. At the very top is John. He has a thought; his thought should filter through the entire organization and get all the way to the bottom where the masses are without any obstruction.

Conclusively, in this audio we hear Hartnett declare MJD is in charge and must be obeyed. Destroying the public claim MJD “doesn’t have a Church”; is merely a “guest” or “frequent speaker”; that those organizations are separate from him. In fact, the whole organization, from its roots built on lies to every shady branch to every leaf of its adoring membership is for MJD’s benefit, glorification and control. What’s more, this is a one-way relationship.

Hartnett likens the key people on the call to kings and queens, with MJD as God. And talks about divinity. I think he’s trying to say if the “kings and queens” of CMA faithfully followed MJD’s “divine” wishes better and put their trust in him, then the “masses” would obey their commands.

I suspect Hartnett had in mind the so-called “divine right of kings” of yore:

In this way, the “divine right” originates as a metaphysical act of humility or submission towards God. The divine right has been a key element for legitimizing many absolute monarchies.

Consequentially, it asserts that a monarch is not accountable to an earthly authority (such as a parliament) because their right to rule is derived from divine authority. The monarch is thus not subject to the will of his people, of the aristocracy, or of any other estate of the realm.

… which mirrors exactly Hartnett’s and MJD’s belief they aren’t – and won’t be – accountable for anything. I have no doubt both men would refuse to recognize the legitimacy of any earthly court or process against them. Like many wrongdoers declaring “only God can judge me”.

If you have beef, it should be with me” becomes “If you have beef, it should be with our Church Council“. Again Hartnett tries to show a decrease of his influence and status in CMA, thereby decreasing his future legal accountability, he probably thinks. But the edits are here to see.

Earlier he went from Chairman to senior pastor to merely a ‘member’. No surprise he denies he’s personally or soley responsible for anything. In his mind he’s innocent of any wrong doing, financial or otherwise. But if he won’t accept accountability, who is left to pass it on to?

Not MJD. Though Hartnett curiously doesn’t name him in his newest batch of comments he’s still defending him on his behalf by diminishing his role, declaring he too is not accountable, which is laughable. A character trait MJD and Hartnett share that I’ve discussed before. He’s not pushing blame onto MJD but he would if he had a backbone. So who does Hartnett expect to take the hit for him when justice comes knocking?

A third edit gives us the answer.

Edit #3

This is a small but crucial change Hartnett made to his long 27 Nov 2020 comment.

100% of our volunteer staff have been healed in one way or another” becomes “100% of our volunteer staff have been healed by God in one way or another“:

Link

Clearly Hartnett realized the original version leaves open the credit who did the healing to an unacceptable degree and didn’t sufficiently absolve MJD, so he alters it to put responsibility exclusively onto actual God like in CMA’s legal disclaimers. Like a beneficial “an act of God” for which no human can be held responsible.

Summary

Hartnett is an arrogant man who thinks his view of the universe is unquestionably the right one. Disagreements are attacks on his ‘pure’ and ‘good’ vision of the world and the souls inhabiting it and trying to elevate it. He will never see the flaws in his approach or understand other people have problems with it.

If you don’t believe in God the differences are unresolvable: he’ll end the discussion, as if he refuses to entertain the thought God doesn’t exist. That would crumble his whole grand idea, learned from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and appropriated by MJD via transcendental meditation. Eternal human souls living and reincarnating between worlds, elevating to perfect unquestioning “oneness” with the creator. Insanely, he believes MJD is the way to achieve it in this lifetime.

With no God to submit to, there would be no-one left for Hartnett to blame except himself.

His comments and edits I’ve described here come across as an angry, rushed reaction to the damaging ‘cult’ label. He’s like a hitherto all-powerful dictator who sees the tide finally starting to turn against him.

Or is it simple frustration seeing external criticism is starting to outrank CMA’s own material in search results?

Don’t Go Chasing Waterfalls, Part 2

On the 1st of this month McKayla posted on her @glohe_ Instagram wellness account a video of a waterfall with no contextual link to her long caption. But the video is a repost from her Heavenly Mountain visit last year to attend a CMA Elite Development Course, as I’ve discussed.

https://www.instagram.com/p/CL5jz24jwDp/

Her long caption is about her recent kidney stones diagnosis and her goals for March, starting:

Happy March 1st my beautiful Glohe friends. I love you all a lot, and hope this month is a successful one for you!!

I was rushed to the ER in excruciating pain, and there I found out I have a few large kidney stones!! Yikes. I’m still waiting to meet with a specialist, because I might need some surgery — I’m not sure yet!

She neglected to mention in her caption the waterfall was from her visit to a man claiming superpowers to cure all kinds of digestive problems, blockages and a wealth of other issues she’s had, like fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Like a kind of Human Microscope and Molecular Laser.

She also didn’t mention if she first tried to use her own knowledge of those same powers to diagnose and cure herself:

Stated benefits of CMA and MJD’s Elite Development course, which McKayla graduated from.

Nor did she consider it worth mentioning if she will be mitigating her karma via her guru’s angelically-powered spiritual tools to prevent her problem recurring, and advising her followers to do likewise.

If she had revealed to her followers a true belief of this nonsense her account would instantly become a joke and end any thought she’s a credible voice for health or wellness. She knows she can’t be credible and also promote snake oil “spirit repair” CDs, “pendants dispelling negative frequencies” and training courses that teach “remote scanning“, “secret commands” and “self diagnosis“.

She did not mention those things but posting that waterfall indicates MJD and his training course were on her mind and associated with the topic she was writing about. Like her main account, @glohe_ is infected with his world of deception.

In fact her next post reads like it could’ve been written by MJD himself. Fixated with autoimmune diseases and the intestinal tract. Easy to read it in his voice. Her final slide is equivalent to CMA’s boilerplate disclaimers, effectively admitting we should ignore her because she’s only pretending to be knowledgeable, just like her “Master John”:

Location, Location, Location

A comment asks “Where is this? Looks beautiful and peaceful” but she has not replied.

I laid out my discovery of the general location in my first McKayla post and asked for more precise information for curiosity.

Thanks to an informed contact, I now know the waterfall is indeed on Heavenly Mountain, North Carolina. It’s a part of Laurel Creek called the “Blue Hole”. A pleasant and secluded place to visit by all accounts, if you’re a Heavenly Mountain resident in the know. It’s accessed by a few easy hiking trails.

Blue Hole sign

Significantly, it’s a short distance from the CMA chapel which like the Blue Hole and the whole of Heavenly Mountain is within private land. The exact map location is publicly available if you want to search the details.

I had guessed it must be somewhere fairly known and not purely CMA connected, so I was partially correct.

Just a small piece of a puzzle I was curious about.

Another comment on McKayla’s waterfall says “Now that is tranquility”. I agree it looks tranquil, beautiful and peaceful (usage of the rope swing excepted.) But I would warn visitors of running into CMA people such as Christopher Hartnett. Which is not a peaceful, tranquil or beautiful prospect.

Heavenly Mountain resident Hartnett visiting in 2010.

I guess MJD too has visited the waterfall in the past. I expect he will not be visiting in the future.

For now, it’s best to virtually visit the picturesque Blue Hole thanks to existing videos. The Blue Hole was there long before Hartnett and MJD ever set foot on Heavenly Mountain and it will still be there long after CMA.

Listen to McKayla Maroney talking about being healed by Master John Douglas

Welcome readers from today’s The Daily Beast article all about CMA and in particular McKayla Maroney. The quotes of Hartnett’s predictably arrogant and belittling response to the reporter are especially worth reading. No surprises a quote from MJD himself was not forthcoming.

One thing not mentioned about McKayla’s involvement is her mother is also in CMA. But if you only read one other post on my blog, whether you are in CMA, ex-CMA or merely interested, make it Master John Douglas Miracle Worker? Read This First . Learn how people are misled to think they’ve been healed by charlatans like Master John Douglas.

CMA Facebook 18 March 2020

Today I’m posting an audio testimony by McKayla from the Let’s Get Metaphysical podcast in 2020. It’s run by Renata Maniaci, an influential CMA Elite.

Renata seen recording her podcast. Note pendant and Home Harmony Repair Directed Prayer Device ($199.99) both with metatron symbol. YouTube December 2020.

Her website features CMA imagery prominently, including the so-called “Maha Crystal“:

Here’s the McKayla clip:

Image: DFHM composite

Hi, my name’s McKayla. I met Master John about 4 years ago. I was really sick, I knew I needed some sort of miracle to get better because nobody was helping me. I went to so many different doctors and I ended up having what they call “chronic fatigue” but Master John now speaks of it as just the name they give it ’cause they don’t know what else to call it when you can’t get out of bed for 3 years. I was so fatigued constantly, I felt so heavy and tired. I didn’t know what was wrong with me.

I used to be a gymnast, trained 8 hours a day all the time, was in the Olympics. It didn’t make sense for me go from being a high energy hard working person to thinking I was crazy. Who am I now? Am I lazy? What’s wrong? You go to doctors and they tell you you’re making it up. A big part of being sick was the mental toll it took on me. I didn’t know who I was anymore.

I also knew there was something missing in my life spiritually. Ever since I was young I wanted to meet some sort of guru. It was crazy that I ended up meeting a friend in Long Beach and she told me “I think this Master John guy can maybe help you, he works with angels.” And I was like “I love angels!” I was already into Doreen Virtue at the time and people who were into the spiritual type stuff.

He also helps with understanding spirituality better, it’s not so like ‘woo-woo‘ it’s just like truth which I loved about him right away. I connected with it so much. It felt like everything that was missing in the spiritual world for me.

Anyway, when I met him it literally felt like the missing piece of my life that I was always looking for and then I got to have a 5 minute session with him. I was pretty tired that day but after he spoke I felt so much bliss. My mom went with me and we were laughing the whole time it was actually rude; that’s how much bliss when you see Master John it like brings this childness out of you. And when you see the people who come to the events that have been around for a while there’s this light to them and Master John always mentions that. For new people that come to events they have to look out for that.

My 5 minute session with him: I walked in, he’s so peaceful and kind. I said “Hi, I’ve just been dealing with terrible fatigue and gave him the paper that literally said chronic fatigue, I have leaky gut, I had stomach issues so bad I couldn’t eat anything without almost passing out. I was having like histamine reactions and didn’t really know what was going on …

In a second he’s like “That’s a bone marrow infection”, which he explains in his lectures. A little more is about mold that can get into your bone, bone marrow stuff. He makes it sound like it makes way more sense. But he killed it for me and I felt literally burning in my chest, in my throat like something just like exploded and I jumped. With gymnastics I know pain, it literally hurt, I was like “What was that?” He was like “That’s all the toxins from a terrible bone marrow infection you had that I just killed, it was all the toxins exploding at once and like fleshing out of my body. It had been in there for 4 years.

It was really painful actually but I needed it. I’ve not had chronic fatigue since.

I was so energized after I felt good again, I got back to living my life. It was weird and that’s what Master John’s people talk about when you’re around him miracles become a part of your life, you just see it happen all the time.

I have a friend who was cured from Lyme diesease and my dad actually passed away early this year, and there were so many blessings that came along with that, that Master John helped me with.

Another thing he helped me with is extremely bad leaky gut and digestive issues. It didn’t get healed right away, I had to stick around him for like a year to get better. For people who see Master John and struggle for a couple of years it’s usually just karmic but now I’m all better and can eat normal food again. It was just a part of my path and needing to stick around to be part of the family.

So for people that also have terrible digestive stuff he’s your guy.

McKayla

McKayla speaks breathlessly about MJD and what she believes he did for her. Her testimony is just like other MJD believers who think they’re beneficiaries of his pretend powers.

This interview proved for me CMA were fully aware who McKayla was and that she was a significant member of the church. Her surname was never used. Not for the first time, her association was partially concealed so not to attract outside attention.

Chairman Hartnett with a painting of Master John Douglas (undated photo)

“He makes it sound like it makes way more sense” – this says everything about how MJD works. Away from his presence in the cold light of day, what he says and does makes no sense does it? Killing toxins from a bone marrow infection thanks to angels. If something doesn’t work it’s “karma”: buy a Karmic Mitigation Blessing to help with that. If something does appear to work, tell your friends. He has followers coming back for years to buy products and go to seminars. At least he used to: is he currently sequestered somewhere and living off the considerable CMA proceeds?

On McKayla’s new Instagram account for health & wellness topics @glohe_ she has posted about dietary and digestive issues but has yet to mention Master John Douglas’s supposed knowledge and powerful abilities in those areas which she raved about in 2020. Let’s see if she ever does.
