Master John Douglas is Srjan Marjanovic

Exclusive story and details: please credit / link / hat-tip if reporting.

Master John Douglas’s real name is Srjan Marjanovic.

Srjan Marjanovic the man who hides from scrutiny while shamelessly scamming & exploiting thousands of Americans; through his Church of the Master Angels acquiring millions of dollars and channeling it to Australia for his enrichment. This man is Srjan Marjanovic.

Srjan Marjanovic

It’s immensely satisfying to finally put this information out there. I long had a hunch “John Douglas” was an alias. I expect most people have an inkling it sounds made-up. Multiple sources eventually told me his real name but I didn’t possess proof independently until later.

I held off publishing but now is the time. Below I set out the discovery, where it leads, and provide documented proof. It’s a very long post but it all ties together by the end.

Some Other Developments

The name is not to be confused with a Serbian musician, a physicist at University of Belgrade, a creative director in Louisiana or various others going by similar names Srdjan Marjanovic / Srđan Marjanović.

Let’s recap key MJD facts:

  • Claims he had a “clairvoyant activation” when 9 years old allowing him to see the entire spiritual realm and bio-electric fields around the body. Later acquiring further superpowers like remote sensing to detect frequency of molecules inside people, diagnosing the true cause of health conditions, and curing them via angelic beings.
  • Is a charlatan who operated largely without public criticism before this blog.
  • Sells $250 ‘blessings’, meditation CDs and other junk tools advertised to ‘repair’ the listener’s karma, conduct remote healing, protect believers from negative energies etc.
  • Controls his cult of the Church of the Master Angels, which has sent millions of $ to unspecified beneficiaries in “East Asia and the Pacific – Australia, Brunei, Burma, Cambodia” via Global SELF Foundation.
  • Waves his arms around pretending he’s directing angels in front of audiences brainwashed into accepting what he says and does is true.
  • Protected and enabled by narcissist Christopher Hartnett, chairman of CMA who privately tells other CMA higher-ups the “natural order” is to become a “multi-billion dollar enterprise”.
  • Has a legion of believers led to believe using his products for years balances their karma and thereby somehow cures their ills, with a particular fixation on the digestive tract.
  • Teaches $10,000 Elite Development courses at CMA’s annual September gathering of acolytes and recruits in Heavenly Mountain, North Carolina. Believers are told they will learn “proof of God” and acquire the same powers that allow MJD to know the true nature of matter and COVID-19.
  • Supposedly dedicates his time to answering followers’ prayer requests and meditating to advance his spiritual connection to the Master Angels. MJD’s followers are under the impression his personal life in Australia is simple, humble, thrifty, celibate, and spiritual. But as I will show for the first time, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

Until now there have been scant biographical details about MJD’s life. CMA have provided next to nothing that is believable besides “John Douglas was born in Australia in 1971”.

The Truth of the Matter

Even having been informed of MJD’s real name didn’t prepare me for what I found in March this year.

The key turned out to be Watauga County Register of Deeds the official deposit of “deeds, deeds of trust, cancellations, powers of attorney, plats and other miscellaneous documents related to real property” for the county Heavenly Mountain is in. This database is free and public to any interested party.

I searched for Christopher Hartnett and found documents stretching back to the 1990s. Analyzing them all would need a dedicated post by a specialist. Here I’m interested in only one: a Trust Certification for Spirit Repair Headquarters Irrevocable Trust dated 17th February 2016, document #644785 to be precise.

The facts revealed in pages 2 & 3 are crystal clear to everyone:

Watauga County Register of Deeds document #644785, page 2. The names and addresses of Srjan Marjanovic a/k/a John Douglas, and Linda & Christopher Hartnett are seen.

Watauga County Register of Deeds document #644785, page 3. The names and signatures of Srjan Marjanovic a/k/a John Douglas, and Linda & Christopher Hartnett are seen.


Srjan Marjanovic, a/k/a John Douglas

So there it is, finally. Absolute proof of my long held suspicion that Master John Douglas is merely an alias. A closely guarded secret, unknown to most everyone that knows him.

Watauga County Register of Deeds document #644785, composite.

Even CMA higher-ups like McKayla Maroney, Jan Casebolt, Richard Sarnat, Bridget Fonger and Jeffrey Wagner are likely unaware of his real name; obeying in ignorance the persona he’s claimed since 2006 to be: a “world renowned” healer called John Douglas. It’s my hope they all read this post, carefully and rationally.

But from today his dual lives of fake master of angels MJD and real-world Srjan Marjanovic will no longer be separate. “John Douglas” is a sham. His followers, friends and network of enablers, onboarders, wellness mentors and coaches of all stripes manipulated to believe there is any worth in his products and teachings must reckon their beliefs with reality.

I couldn’t believe what I had unexpectedly found. The big secret explicitly declared in a certified legal document in black & white, even signed by himself. Was this an oversight by Marjanovic and the Hartnetts back in 2016, did they not realize this is a public document?

Remember the document is freely available to anyone who knows where to look. It is not leaked, private or internal.

I wonder if the notary public Andrea Capua of di Santi Watson Capua Wilson was aware back in 2016 she was in the presence of a man claiming to talk to “The Lords of Karma” and able to direct angels using his hands, selling blessings and prayers to heal diseases and health complaints – if one’s karmic balance was in favor? I’m not sure which week of law school covers that.

This one document also conclusively proves CMA and Hartnett were lying through their teeth every time they said MJD was merely a “guest speaker” or that CMA and Global SELF Foundation were independent of any individual. As I have provided evidence of before. Of course, I already knew Hartnett was a serial liar from CMA teleseminars and podcasts. Both he and Marjanovic seem to be pathological liars. This is a legally binding document filed with Watauaga County and is irrefutable evidence Christopher Hartnett, his wife Linda Hartnett and Srjan Marjanovic/MJD have been joined at the hip.

Linda Hartnett and Srjan Marjanovic. Linda’s husband Christopher Hartnett is seen behind. Circa 2012.

Marjanovic’s given address uses the same PO Box 1520 as several companies of Hartnett: The Pink Emerald Company and his domain registration business Tedhens Limited. Also the apparently defunct Saint Hart Gallery run by the Hartnetts; purveyors of trinkets of dubious worth but priced at many thousands of dollars, and dishonestly proclaiming establishment in 1926:

In 2017 the name of Spirit Repair Headquarters Irrevocable Trust was changed to 1200 HMD Irrevocable Trust. This refers to 1200 Heavenly Mountain Drive, the CMA ‘chapel’ close to Hartnett’s residence. The same year CMA International Foundation was founded and the chapel was refitted in gold paint and terrible art to become the centerpiece of the operation:

Christopher Hartnett preaching to the converted in his gilded chapel, Instagram 15 August 2017.

But what is an Irrevocable Trust, like the one set up by those three? What is this document saying besides MJD’s real name?

It’s outside the scope of this post not to mention outside my area of knowledge to explore technicalities of trusts, grantors, deeds, irrevocable vs revocable, and the like. I am sure there are more insights to uncover from the Watauga County database by someone fully understanding what they’re looking at.

But quoting from :

  • The purpose of a trust is to create an “Artificial Legal Person” to protect, hold, and manage your private wealth for the benefit of your heirs.
  • The trustee of an “Irrevocable Trust” has sole discretion over trust assets.
  • An “Irrevocable Trust” gets the assets completely out of your (Grantor’s) name and in return you get complete asset protection, elimination of probate, elimination of estate or inheritance taxes, in certain cases a tax deduction for the assets contributed to the trust, and finally, under certain conditions other uncommon tax benefits not otherwise available.

And from :

  • The trust is now the owner of the assets, which you’ll retitle or register in the trust’s name. The assets are no longer yours, and have no bearing on your wealth, the value of your estate, or your tax liability.
  • Irrevocable trusts also offer asset protection from future creditors and lawsuits. If the trust is properly structured and managed, you cannot be asked or forced to give up assets in certain irrevocable trusts in the event that you’re sued.
  • Reasons you might benefit from an irrevocable trust are:
    • You’re very wealthy and want to reduce your taxable estate
    • You are likely to be sued and need asset protection

So the trust appears to establish a legal ownership for the CMA chapel building and presumably other assets, away from the Global SELF Foundation and legally separate from the 3 individuals, to reduce taxes and legal liability. The beneficiaries of the Trust are not listed but trustees can also be beneficiaries. The Trust becomes the legal owner of 1200 Heavenly Mountain Drive – the chapel where ceremonies like handing out Elite Development graduation certificates once happened in better times for CMA:

Srjan Marjanovic AKA Master John Douglas flanked by Christopher & Linda Hartnett granting worthless certificates of Elite Development course graduation at 1200 Heavenly Mountain Drive. Facebook 2017. The self-issued certificates have no legal basis, unlike the trust certificate for Spirit Repair Headquarters Irrevocable Trust which carries the signature of all three.

Bottom line: it’s proof of an extremely close legal bond & financial relationship between the Hartnetts, Srjan Marjanovic, CMA and the Global SELF Foundation. The kind of formal relationship they’ve all pretended doesn’t exist.

I shall leave the Trust there because there is more to Srjan Marjanovic. The secret name has been proved, now I’ll see what further discoveries it leads to.

A Thorn By Any Other Name

I suspect Marjanovic first adopted the name John Douglas in 2006, there appears no prior history for the man. A dead giveaway something was amiss.

Why the fake name? Because it hides his real identity and is a friendlier, familiar name easier to digest. It is protection from eyes of the law and anyone delving into his past.

The contemptible nature of his business makes an alias preferable. The boldfaced lie of his new persona John Douglas could never belong to a realworld human with family, acquaintances and history and not be exposed.

I have not spoken to any associates of Srjan Marjanovic for this post. It’s a sign how much can be found without insider knowledge. I would like to see anyone who has ever personally known Srjan Marjanovic to speak up in your own time, tell your stories to the world however you’re comfortable.

Now that MJD and Srjan Marjanovic are toxic names, exposed forever as charlatans, he may pop up with another alias, spouting the same guff or hawking a new useless invention. Like a career criminal with a string of AKAs.

Following the Trail of Bread Crumbs

Googling “Srjan Marjanovic” currently shows about 16-22 results, none related to a 9-year old who had a “clairvoyant activation”. No mentions of angels, healing or anything of the sort. Confirming his origin story is bogus and an effort to never publicly associate the name with MJD (the Trust document being the only exception found to date and is not indexed by Google.)

I feel that will soon change.

Only around 4 of those 22 are the Marjanovic of interest, ignoring duplicates. No images of him show up.

Extract of Google search “Srjan Marjanovic”. Images are blacked out because unrelated.

Other search engines have been less useful, often merging results with similiarly named people. Leave a comment if you find anything important I’ve missed. What I present here is the majority of what I’ve found and where it led me. For clarity I’ve arranged things differently to how the research actually happened. There is a diagram later to help understand the connections.

Srjan Marjanovic the Artist

The first discovery is more a curiosity than anything substantial.

Evidently a young Srjan contributed to a collection of children’s art titled All About Us published for the 1978 Commonwealth Games, Edmonton, Canada.

His piece is described “Abstract, Tempera, Srjan Marjanovic, Age Six, Camperdown, Australia, 1978” :

University of Guelph’s McLaughlin Library catalog entry, via via via

I don’t know for sure this 6-year old Srjan Marjanovic is the one and same who would grow up to be MJD but it all matches up. Camperdown is part of Sydney, Australia. If his 1971 year of birth is correct (which appears to be so) he would indeed be aged 6 approx 1977/78 (no doubt the piece of art would’ve been created a year before the book was published.)

A copy of All About Us is kept in the University of Guelph’s McLaughlin Library. Perhaps elsewhere too. Alas a digital copy is not available but must be inspected in person.

Would a reader be able to visit McLaughlin Library (Ontario, Canada) and get a scan of the relevant page? A longshot perhaps but the abstract tempura art created by the 6-year old MJD may be a rare & intriguing insight into his formative mind.

Srjan Marjanovic the Businessman

Turning to the more significant Google hits for his name, we see the Australian government’s Business Register (ABR) turns up a sole trader operating in Bellevue Hill in Sydney. His Australian Business Number (ABN) is 44959514985.

I haven’t found what KEYSHINE was. Few other details are provided. Could this be our Srjan of the Trust Certification? It seems possible. At least it shows someone goes by that name in Australia.

To see what else this ABR database could tell me, I searched for anything potentially connected to Srjan. MJD’s pre-CMA enterprise Spirit Repair showed up something that got my attention: SPIRIT REPAIR AUSTRALIA PTY LTD (ABN 39158642507):

Searching (PTY LTD = Proprietary Limited)

Clicking through gives:

It says Spirit Repair Australia is the previous name for some business called “Consolidated Assembly Foundation”. Sounds like a manufacturing company. ABR gives no details of the company directors or owners. This looked to be going nowhere.

But the ASIC (Australian Securities & Investments Commission) link gives a new registry page that offers documents for purchase:

But it turned out there was no need to make a purchase, as tempted as I was. A Google search for this mysterious company, possibly connected to Srjan/MJD or possibly not, leads to a page on Dun & Bradstreet Business Directory called Religious Organizations Companies in Bondi, New South Wales, Australia. OK that sounds promising.

Clicking through to D&B’s page for Consolidated Assembly Foundation showed more details than ABR had:

Note the employee count and revenue are modelled, not actual figures.

Well what do we see? An exact address listed and a Srjan Marjanovic as Key Principal. I’ve partly hidden the address so I’ve invented a code for it throughout – RB1. We’ll be seeing it again.

So this Consolidated Assembly Foundation in Sydney is run by someone with same name as MJD’s real name, and its previous company name is MJD’s old business Spirit Repair. This was starting to add up. But I couldn’t be sure it was the same man. Note Consolidated Assembly Foundation changed their name summer 2017 and the business is still active.

There’s little else about Consolidated Assembly Foundation without buying documents – if anyone’s up for sending me copies I think much could be gleaned.

Now I’ll investigate the second significant Google result for “Srjan Marjanovic”.

Srjan Marjanovic the Resident

Incredibly, Google found the agenda of a Woollahra Municipal Council (Sydney) planning application meeting held 17th Febraury 2015.

Here’s an extract showing residents lodging objections to the construction plans of a new house next door:

The address given for Mr Garth Walter Fleeton & Srjan Marjanovic is RB1 – same as Consolidated Assembly Foundation. So the Marjanovic of Consolidated Assembly Foundation (Spirit Repair Australia until 2017) is certainly the same Marjanovic residing with the previously unknown Mr Fleeton. Discounting the unlikely possibility there are two men with that name at same address.

Their submissions to the panel concerned the planned neighbouring building’s negative impact on “privacy, overshadowing, sense of enclosure” for RB1. The building was eventually approved, with some alterations.

Ironic how concerns for privacy led to their names being on this public document. I suspect Marjanovic and Fleeton didn’t realize residents names would appear in it. But it’s a key to discovering a lot more.

The Bellevue Hill vicinity of RB1, from Google:

Prices below have been converted from Australian dollars to US dollars at current exchange rate.

RB1 was last sold March 2013 for $1.6million.

RB1’s current value estimates from property websites:

$3.8million &


$3million says of Bellevue Hill:

The grandeur and beauty of sprawling estate homes is what defines this prestigious neighbourhood. Bellevue Hill is where Sydney’s high rollers retreat to, to bask in the serenity of this quiet hillside suburb.

Quietly perched on the hillside, Bellevue Hill’s network of wide leafy streets and luxury sports cars set the scene for what lies behind unassuming gated properties – grand estate homes some of which have the largest land holdings in the Eastern Suburbs.

From the big screen to big business, some of Australia’s top executives, entertainers and athletes call Bellevue Hill home. An area that is renowned for its old money, Bellevue Hill is brimming with established families who hold on tightly to their homes in this exclusive Eastern Suburbs neighbourhood.

Australia’s richest man Kerry Packer was one such resident at the time of his death.

But still no proof this particular Srjan Marjanovic is the same one as MJD.

Let’s search for his housemate Garth Walter Fleeton and see where it leads.

Garth Walter Fleeton

Googling the name doesn’t show too many results. Like Srjan Marjanovic it’s a rare, practically unique name. And also like Srjan Marjanovic there are just a handful of photos out there.

It appears as the display name of an Instagram account @theodore_diamond with over 3000 photos of vintage ladies fashion. Currently it has 630 followers and is following an incredibly high number of accounts: 5993. There is also a @theodorediamond account with far fewer posts but similiar content, seemingly no longer used.

@theodore_diamond Instagram, December 2019.

The screenshot above is from December 2019. The bio link and indeed the website itself have since been removed. But here’s a sample of what it looked like back then: December 2019, homepage. December 2019, ‘Our Story’.

“Theodore Diamond is the Brain Child of Garth Walter Fleeton costume designer and stylist. The creation of beautiful and stylish work attire which can go from night to day in one step.

Garth’s background in fashion and design started in his twenties when working for Opera Australia and the Australian Ballet for 15 years.

For the past two decades Garth has strengthen [sic] his knowledge of garment construction and design while understanding a females perception of fashion.

The Theodore Diamond label never got off the ground. But the associated Instagram account strangely remains very active posting nothing except old fashion photos since at least 2016.

There is just a crumb of evidence of Fleeton’s career as a fashion designer. is the site of a ‘couturier’ evidentally with an interest in corsets and other vintage fashion. No updates more recent than 2014, some years before Garth’s unsuccessful rebrand as Theodore Diamond. There is a longer biography of Garth on the 2006 version of the site at Internet Archive.

Example page

The twitter icon on most pages of the site links to an account @cleverfitbra whose most recent tweet was in 2015:

Note the display name TheodoreDiamond, the bio link and the location Sydney. The tweets are mainly vintage fashion photos. All affirming the connection between and Theodore Diamond.

“CleverFit” was Garth’s invention of a “brassiere with individually adjustable inflatable air pockets located in the cups, that receive air from a pump, so to enhance a wearer’s cleavage and shape.”

Believe it or not.

CleverFit seems never to have reached production. Why the associated twitter account is named for Garth’s other failed brand Theodore Diamond is curious. Almost as if Theodore Diamond was used as an alias for Garth. I don’t know the origin of the name Theodore Diamond but I have a hunch there is a deeper connection to other enigmatic ‘Theodores’ I’ve mentioned elsewhere.

But is this fashion designer Garth Walter Fleeton / “Theodore Diamond” the same one living with a Srjan Marjanovic at RB1?


This is most easily proven from trademark records :

Trademarks owned by Garth Fleeton.

Clicking through, the owner of the Theodore Diamond trademark and his address is revealed:

‘Theodore Diamond’ trademark. Note description of goods & services, and date.

The blacked-out address is – you guessed it – “RB1” as found previously, proving beyond all reasonable doubt the Garth living with Srjan Marjanovic on the 2015 planning meeting agenda is the same Garth of Theodore Diamond’s Instagram/website/twitter.

For surety I’ll prove it a second way. Theodore Diamond’s business entry on : search

The blacked-out address is again RB1. And what is “Lifestyle Enterprises International Pty Ltd”? Looking up the registry information for the Theodore Diamond domain gives: search for

These two screenshots together show the Garth of “RB1” and the Garth of “Theodore Diamond” are one and the same. A fuller dive into Lifestyle Enterprises International will have to wait for another day.

The Door Unlocked

Remember I haven’t proved yet the Srjan Marjanovic of the Trust Certification is the same Srjan Marjanovic at RB1.

I wrote an extensive post about Australian Digestive Excellence and Audri & Jim Lanford’s deep involvement with MJD/CMA. Briefly, it was a health drink MJD and the Lanfords created, sold & promoted via CMA and other outlets. The owner company was “Excellent Purity”.

In 2016 Excellent Purity Corp made a single public filing with the US government’s Securities & Exchange Commision – click the link in the table to load details of the filing.

The document contains quite a surprise, below the entries for the Lanfords:

A John Douglas of Australia is the 3rd executive officer. His given address is RB1. Not a PO Box or someplace in USA but the exact address I’ve been discussing. This SEC document is practically a missing link telling us John Douglas/MJD lives at RB1. And the Trust Certification told us John Douglas/MJD is called Srjan Marjanovic. So excluding the chance there are two different men called Srjan Marjanovic living at the same address, John Douglas/MJD of CMA does indeed reside at RB1 with Garth.

This diagram shows the four principal facts combine to reveal the aliases residing at “RB1”:

But there is another discovery which completes a link from RB1 back to MJD.

Among the almost 6000 accounts followed by Garth’s @theodore_diamond Instagram are two that speak volumes:

“Theodore Diamond” follows “John Douglas”.

And *drum roll* …

“Theodore Diamond” follows CMA.

Garth not only follows CMA but even MJD’s old abandoned single-post account @johndouglas1707 with 70 followers.

This shows Garth is absolutely aware who he’s living with. Is Garth a believer in MJD and a member of CMA? I don’t know. Has MJD been accompanied ever by Garth on his CMA visits to the USA? I don’t know. CMA have in the past mentioned “Gabriel, Master John’s dedicated assistant”:

I don’t have a photo of Srjan & Garth together so here’s Srjan and Gabriel instead.

Lest anyone wonder if this is all ancient history no longer current: Garth most recently ‘liked’ a CMA post only earlier this month:

CMA Instagram 3rd December 2021

Let’s see what we can find about Srjan through his friend Garth.

Garth & Srjan & John

Two photos of Garth Walter Fleeton dated circa 2010. Like Srjan there seems no recent ones to be found.

Garth’s Facebook:

His Facebook now evidently unused is similiar to the Theodore Diamond Instagram: thousands of vintage fashion photos, architecture, interior design, classic Hollywood.

The intro panel confirms various things already found but also states he’s in a relationship, albeit undated.

No mention of a ‘Srjan’ that I can find but there is a ‘John’:

16 June 2013 Facebook

Garth that is freakin’ hilarious. I want to see you and John modelling that in [RB1]” writes a friend on a photo of unknown models.

1 Sep 2012 Facebook

Have the most fabulous time – and lots of love to John too. Love you guys” writes a friend ahead of a Los Angeles/Las Vegas vacation for Garth & ‘John’.

I think it’s interesting, based on this evidence, not even Garth’s friends use or probably even know John’s real name is Srjan. At least this appears the case back around 2012-2013.

10 Sep 2012 Facebook, “Boobies ferragamo’s”, West Hollywood. One of the few original photos posted by Garth during the USA vacation.

January 2013.

The comment above shows an interest in property development. This will be relevant later.


Another Facebook find of interest, from 2009:

Mobile Wax +Tan

Waxilicious provides men and women with a professional level of body maintenance … in the privacy of your own home.

Call Garth on …

We can also arrange for Tanning Parties for you and your friends – just ask!

Waxilicious was another of Garth’s shortlived businesses years before Theodore Diamond. I’m guessing it was started before he met Srjan Marjanovic.

(Not to be confused with other businesses of same name that show up on Google.)

“Specialising in male Brazilian waxing”

Waxilicious is still listed on :

Welcome to “WAXILICIOUS” we are a proudly owned and operated in-house & mobile waxing & tanning service located in the Eastern Suburbs Rose Bay area of Sydney Australia.

Our clientelle are from all walks of life, we cater to both male/female, gay/straight.

Waxilicious has a twitter page from 2009, though has zero tweets:

“Professional Waxier, Shaver, Clipper, Tanner based in Paddington NSW!! Why not give me a message for my email pricelist. All areas of the body waxed……”

Paddington is an area of Sydney very close to Bellevue Hill. I’m reminded it’s where MJD said he was operating from back in his Spirit Repair days: Internet Archive (2007)

One on one sessions with private clients”

Who would have thought MJD’s “Healing Energy” service would have so much in common with Garth’s waxing service?

I wonder how the two men first crossed paths.

One more Waxilicious thing. A sample of the 44 accounts @waxilicious twitter is following:

@MariahCarey @gayguys2 @Advice_from_gay @AskTheGayGuys @JurijsPhoto @turkgays @turkgays_net

@Gays @videosgays @GLNWMSU @GaysGoneWild @5BlackGays @0546762200 @ilove_5_a_gays @thegays

Quite a few of these accounts are following @waxilicious back. I can’t find any history of @waxilicious ever sending a tweet.

Theodore’s Interests

@waxilicious’ twitter followings inspired me to take another look at @theodore_diamond’s 5000+ followings.

A sample:

@nextgaything @seancodyxofficial etc

@mantrapclub @australiangayskiweek @massagemale etc

@biminibabes @itstayce @butthread etc

Another following (and follower) is Aliky Kouroupis, a major longtime Master John Douglas associate, enabler and promotor I’m yet to write about. Though like many, she’s been publicly very quiet about him recently.

Lilydale House

Returning to properties, a Google result for Garth Fleeton shows a paywalled Daily Telegraph article from 2019:

If anyone can send me this article please do. But in any case, Google provides some public extracts for free:

Two apartments inside the renovated nurses quarters of the former Marrickville hospital [Sydney] have each sold for $2.5 million.

Fashion designer Garth Fleeton and his partner had splashed out on the top-floor apartment before going “all-in” on historic Lilydale House …

The renovated Lilydale House. Mr Fleeton and his partner will rent out each apartment for $1400 a week from late October.

“Fashion designer Garth Fleeton and his partner”. I’m sure everyone will agree beyond all reasonable doubt this is the same Garth I have written about and has resided with Srjan Marjanovic.

Imagine having MJD as your landlord. I wonder if his $199 “Home Harmony Device” is a requirement of the rental agreement?

“It will keep the air around you clear by killing various organisms, such as nano bacteria, viruses, mold and fungus …” (obviously this is a total fraud – do not purchase) CMA Instagram 31st May 2017.

CMA higher-up Renata Maniaci with her Home Harmony Device behind her.

A $5 million (= US$3.6million) property purchase is quite the accomplishment for a “fashion designer” and other enterprises of unremarkable renown.

It seems being friends with the man who’s secretly MJD has been good financially for Garth.

A quote from the definitive CMA exposé on Reddit:

The elite workshop originated because John wanted to buy a very expensive house in Australia. He needed money fast to make the purchase and so they scrambled to put the elite workshop together, totally suckering those initial attendees into thinking it was some divine course that had been gifted by the angels. I can’t believe they pulled it off and have continued to find people willing to spend $10,000. But when the angels instruct John to travel abroad to exotic destinations and buy million-dollar properties and spend hundreds of thousands of dollars renovating them….well…..that money has to come from somewhere.


The purchase of Lilydale House by Garth Fleeton and unnamed ‘partner’ confirms this detail of the exposé even if not the specific “very expensive house” referred to. Maybe it was the purchase of “RB1” or another property.

Elite graduates – this is why MJD wanted your $10,000.

Maybe Garth lives wilfully ignorant about the source of money.

Who knew Lilydale House (rent US$1000/week) was one of the “alternative health technologies and solutions to eliminate physical and physiological challenges and nurture the self development, self awareness and self-sufficiency” the Global SELF Foundation claim they donate CMA’s revenue to?

Lastly is this review Garth Fleeton gave about their Building Manager for Lilydale House:

“We purchased the two premier apartments in the historical Lilydale House at the Marrick & Co development to add to our property portfolio in 2019 …”

Note the use of plural pronouns ‘we’ & ‘our’.

Why Fleeton twice went public about their purchase of Lilydale House is a mystery to me. But the testimony above implies Lilydale House is just one part of their portfolio. Property development and real estate investment appears to be far more succesful than his earlier pursuits.

Ironic the millions of dollars of income CMA obtained from thousands of Americans made to think buying prayers and karmic mitigation nonsense will cure their health issues has ended up buying a former hospital’s nurses home on the other side of the world.

Top & Bottom Stories

Multiple property renovation plans submitted to Woollahra Municipal Council give an insight into Garth & Srjan’s continued ownership of the RB1 residence.

This development application was filed in 2020 and approved February 2021:

From Woollahra Municipal Council’s public and free Development Application database

AU$583,000 = US$415,000. A considerable sum to spend on home improvements I’m sure you’ll agree.

The plan consists of adding a whole new level onto the single-story building plus other interior & exterior alterations. This would necessitate living elsewhere while the work was underway this year. Amendments to the plans were submitted and approved as recently as September 2021 (aside: the same month MJD’s most devoted were gathered in Heavenly Mountain for the Elite courses.)

Extract showing addition of top story etc:


To my surprise we see “John Douglas + Garth Walter Fleeton” listed as the clients. The first time seeing Garth’s name alongside Srjan’s full CMA alias.

Yet elsewhere Srjan has signed off the RB1 plans using his legal name and signature, being the property’s owner:

Srjan’s handwritten name and signature, dated 14th October 2020. Fleeton’s signature does not appear in the documents I’ve seen.

Srjan’s signature matches that on the 2016 Trust Certification, proving in a satisfyingly straightforward and traditional way they’re the same person.

There’s an amusing detail in the plans, about replacing an exterior deck due to “major termite damage”:

Larger image of the damage.

What a pity Master John’s property has been infected with termites!

Perhaps it’s karma.

Family Ties has an intriguing entry that implies a closer connection between Fleeton and Marjanovic. I’m not knowledgeable in this field, if you have a full account and understand what the below entry is saying, please leave a comment:

Srjan was born 1971 and Garth 1973, from what I’ve found.

A broad overview:

More could be shown but at expensive of clarity. A clear separation of US & Australian interests is evident.

I may make a new version in future as more information comes to light.

Final Thoughts

I’d always had an inkling John Douglas wasn’t his real name: a hunch that explained the lack of confirmed biography. To claim the things he claims but not to have any reliable, third-party reports and stories about him is surprising to say the least. It did not sit right how he could appear in 2006 boasting of his incredible supernatural ‘abilities’ and a worldwide clientbase including heads of state, but with no prior information to be found. It’s a sign of healer-charlatans.

But obtaining hard proof seemed out of reach.

Srjan Marjanovic got way too confident with the act, especially teaming up with the self-aggrandizing J.P. Morgan-wannabe Christopher Hartnett who no doubt promised they’d make millions together. By 2018 with a popular Olympic star on their books, Marjanovic and Hartnett were comfortable enough to post videos on YouTube of his absurd seminars, forgetting the world was watching.

Then COVID-19 came in 2020. The man once promoted as “the man who can kill a virus” was plainly unable to kill this virus, dealing a critical blow to MJD’s credibility in the eyes of even his most devout believers.

And now we know his real name, it shows up as a lie what Christopher Hartnett said only earlier this year:

Master John later changed his surname to Douglas because his reputation as a healer was such that “he would come home and have eight people waiting [at his residence, hoping to be healed]. He wanted a private life.”

NY Post 9 Oct 2021

In fact, “Master John” had changed not only his surname but his first also and had zero reputation as a healer before the name change. Absolutely nothing to show a legitimate reason for a new identity. The story of people waiting at his house reminds me of the ridiculous story Hartnett spun about MJD being surrounded at airports by crowds wanting healing.

Hartnett is impotent and has no credibility. It’s time for Marjanovic to stop relying on him for defence.

Does having an alias allow Marjanovic to sleep at night? How he justifies the lies, manipulation and cult built around him? A separate person from his real self. “It wasn’t me that did all that, it was John Douglas! A character I invented. I did nothing wrong.”

His secrecy is deliberate of course, hiding from inspection, investigation and accountability.

Finding the Trust Certificate and the rest is a testament to the power of freely available information, the reason the world wide web was created.

Just the kind of information Srjan Marjanovic doesn’t want John Douglas’s followers to know exists.

Free information sources like the ones MJD says his own “secret knowledge” supplants: that “Google, Facebook, Microsoft and Apple-fed superiority” are doomed to crumble when confronted with his supposed proof of God and the soul.

It’s said that “News is what somebody does not want you to print” and I expect that applies to several things in this post.

If nothing else, the Trust Certificate alone should be of interest to those not only with an interest in Master John Douglas and the Church of the Master Angels but of any individual who pretends to have otherworldly access and knowledge.

This post has been long partly because I think it’s important to lay out details of sources and my method, unlike the practices of Master John Douglas and any number of similiar gurus who pull their “sacred” and “precious CMA knowledge” out of thin air.

Some words for Srjan Marjanovic’s remaining believers. The Trust Certificate is not an opinion or “trying to spoil someone else’s blessings, someone else’s hard work, someone else’s natural right to be successful” (MJD quote.) It’s a legal document signed by himself and filed with a public body. There’s no defence against what this document shows and where it led me. Marjanovic pretends to be in touch with angels to get people to give money to his church to fund his and Garth’s property developing and real estate investments. I guess many won’t want to hear that; but truth sets you free over time.

Thankyou to those people who wish to be anonymous but inspired and assisted my research.

Some Other Developments

Since my last post in June…

McKayla Maroney

McKayla discussed CMA and Master John in an Elle interview. “She says she hasn’t been to a Master John workshop since the start of the pandemic” – that wasn’t true then and it’s even more untrue now. She spent almost entirety of September 2021 in Heavenly Mountain for Elite Development Course activities. McKayla didn’t come close to revealing in Elle the depth of her continued involvement in CMA.

McKayla Maroney appears emboldened following that extended stay in Heavenly Mountain at the Hartnett residence. She has promoted a fellow Elite’s company: Miriam Thom‘s Club Psora whose mission is to “heal chronic skin conditions”.

But Club Psora has a bigger mission:

Miriam created club psora to provide for others what was missing for her: a safe container offering access to specialists, resources, personal stories and community discourse.

Above all, her mission is to facilitate a roadmap for people living with skin conditions as they navigate their own path of self-healing. She believes that together, we can challenge the prognosis of an “incurable” diagnosis.

Club Psora is connected to multiple CMA higher-ups and likely operates as an affiliate or funnel to CMA itself for selected members.

But McKayla’s interview for Club Psora was nothing compared to her Instagram post earlier this month:

Like a MJD seminar taster, hitting many of his ideas and keywords: energy, alignment, reaction, God’s plan, love, soul, invest, karma, opposition, growing. Note the friendly introduction before the green heart: readers unsusceptible to eventual funneling towards MJD are gently filtered out. Then the MJD-like patter begins.

Very easy to imagine the mind-numbing intonation of Srjan Marjanovic reading it.

On Instagram story videos McKayla recently said “I think I have bad skin karma” and gave advice such as “gut bacteria is really important for your skin health“.

Anyone referred by McKayla to a mentor, coach or ‘specialist’ of any kind: be cautious you are entering a CMA funnel.

Pat Buchanan

In the summer, Master John believer Pat Buchanan set up a Send Pat Buchanan to Divine Spiritual Training fundraiser for September’s Elite Development course $10,000 weekend:

Note the $501 total raised (as of 1st December 2021).

She wrote she has little money. And yet she has been encouraged to think it would be best for her to spend $10,000 on Master John’s “very special training.” Also note she says she did have the funds in 2014 but wasn’t “accepted”. This is MJD’s mindgames technique to grow believer’s emotional and financial investment over years, building to one day being “ready” and “grateful” for Elite acceptance. Since 2014 she may have spent more than $10,000 being strung along by Master John.

The full page is worth reading for a better understanding of exactly why a dedicated CMA member wants to begin Elite training and what benefits they’re led to believe will come from it. The same course CMA itself say in the application small print is “of no benefit whatsoever.”

There are multiple levels of Elite offering ever more “advanced training” to acquire preposterous “super abilities” like MJD’s own “remote scanning of matter” etc.

The most interesting part of Pat’s fundraiser is the failure to raise the required funds didn’t stop her attending the course in Heavenly Mountain. A mysterious benefactor evidentally granted her a fully funded placement:

“I got my huge blessing and I’m receiving my miracle! With deep gratitude to the divine creator, and to all beings, angels, bodhisattvas, light workers, and helpers who are part of my miracle.”

20 August 2021 GoFundMe update.

“My initial training is complete and I am so blessed! I am deeply grateful to all who helped me get to this day and to all who support me on this divine path.

I welcome continuing gifts so I may further my spiritual development throughout this year.

16 September 2021 GoFundMe update.

Her mysterious benefactor? I strongly suspect and am led to believe – McKayla Maroney.

Pulp Fiction

Volume Two of Medical Miracles by Elite graduate Richard Sarnat was published in October. CMA propaganda completely devoid of worth.

NY Post

A CMA/McKayla article by NY Post published in October.

Divine Mother Foundation (EIN 86-3743675)

The Hartnetts and Srjan Marjanovic have started a new “charitable organization” Divine Mother evidentally to replace the Global SELF Foundation:

The Divine Mother Foundation is the suggested way for CMA’s donors to directly and concretely assist others in need of basic necessities and provide a direct practical avenue for spiritual aspirants to pay homage to the universal Divine mothers and simultaneously uplift women in need of basic fundamentals around the globe.

Through guidance from the Master Angels and the direct help of the angelic realm, CMA wants to support humanity on all levels.

No details of the unnamed “three international orphanages” and other benefactors, no surprise. A screed of misdirection like Global SELF Foundation. Vague mission statement, no transparency, no names or oversight and not deserving of a single donation. Unless you want to help fund Srjan Marjanovic and Garth Fleeton’s lifestyle and next real estate project.

Mother Lover

Another new site I want to bring to attention is the creepy

It’s goal is “the ultimate digital celebratory tribute website, data depository, master photo vault, safety deposit box, and memory keeper for all things your mom.”

It’s gone around CMA’s network of higher-ups, many of whom are much less dedicated to CMA than they used to be. presents itself with no affiliation with any group, principle or person, thus it potentially appeals to anyone who comes across it. The project casts the widest possible net since everybody on the planet has or had a mother. and it’s Facebook page hide the CMA association but it’s revealed through the domain’s registration info (Hartnett’s Tedhens Limited) plus is listed on CMA’s new umbrella site which has the bizarre tagline “The Heart of the Inner Net”.

Linda Hartnett seen with a framed photo of Srjan Marjanovic, a/k/a John Douglas. Circa 2021.

There are 8.1 billion cherished mothers represented on Earth at this moment.

With super encrypted servers on four continents, all her information remains secure, and the easy-to-use family portal has been built to last for at least 10 generations to come.”

Laughable even by Hartnett’s standards.

8.1 billion mothers? Built to last for at least 10 generations? The domain is only registered until July 2022.


Don’t give your details. Avoid and stay away.

A Comprehensive Exposé

Last month an extraordinary personal account of the workings of CMA was posted on Reddit. It’s overdue I covered it. It is written by an anonymous ex-CMA member.

I say extraordinary because it’s breathtakingly detailed and captures the reader’s attention as it lays out many aspects and practices of CMA, “Master John Douglas”, Christopher Hartnett and their constructed world of manipulation. The author’s psychological and financial struggles caused by CMA are also described. Thankfully they are now in a comfortable enough place to make public their story.

Some information in the post I cannot verify but is more than plausible based on what I do know. Other parts confirm things I’ve suspected, have written about and other stories I’ve received. Some parts are repeats of CMA lore.

It is knowledgeable and thoroughly covers everything from the grooming of fresh inductees to the disturbing death of Audri and Jim Lanford.

I had no involvement even though the piece uses images from my blog.

It is easily the single most comprehensive writing on CMA so far. I commend the author. I hope I can give it more awareness and others will benefit from it.

To anyone still involved in CMA or is finding themselves becoming involved: read it with open eyes.

The beginning of “My experience …”

An interesting reply to the post by another user greatly backs it up and is worth including here. I can’t verify everything but again, it matches certain facts I know, not all of which I’ve written about yet:

… When I first had my suspicions about John there was very little on the web about him. Using an alias and multitudes of LLCs makes the trail very fuzzy. Hopefully people who have just been introduced can find this info and see the red flags before they are blind to them.

I have witnessed members being chastised (by John) for getting antibiotics when John’s healing didn’t work. I have seen others quietly seek out western medicine when simple health issues could not be resolved with John’s healing. I have seen people ignore health problems that started out small and became threatening issues because they were reluctant to seek the advice of a doctor for fear it would reflect poorly on their level of faith. People get food poisoning despite using the food disc (even with John at the table!) and sick despite using the cold and flu disc, so the evidence that these tools don’t work are there in plain view. But the pressure to keep up the charade that the healings work is intense. Anyone who challenges too much is ostracized. When the tools and healings don’t work excuses are made which usually falls on that person’s karmic shortcomings.

The elite workshop originated because John wanted to buy a very expensive house in Australia. He needed money fast to make the purchase and so they scrambled to put the elite workshop together, totally suckering those initial attendees into thinking it was some divine course that had been gifted by the angels. I can’t believe they pulled it off and have continued to find people willing to spend $10,000. But when the angels instruct John to travel abroad to exotic destinations and buy million-dollar properties and spend hundreds of thousands of dollars renovating them….well…..that money has to come from somewhere.


To those in CMA’s orbit: ask yourself how well it tallies with your gut feelings. Ponder what you do and don’t know about CMA and MJD and what gaps this new information fills in.

Like any cult, ex-CMA people often feel embarrassed and ashamed for being duped and would rather not talk about it. Years of wasted time, energy and money. It’s no surprise stresses caused by CMA-inflicted spiritual abuse would cause depression and other problems even when CMA are in the rear view mirror; which may also envelope friends and family.

Inside CMA’s chapel in Heavenly Mountain, North Carolina. Painting depicts Master John Douglas alongside the Master Angels, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and other assorted characters.

CMA exploit the fallacy of the sunken cost, having persuaded their believers karma will eventually become balanced given enough time and enough use of their spiritual tools and workshops.

CMA is full of people who know under the surface it’s bogus but have invested so much they want to see it through to an end that doesn’t come.

This sunken cost has caused significant debt for some escapees and current CMA members. Meaning the health issues that probably got them seeking MJD’s ‘healing’ are now compounded with financial worries.

Another framed piece in CMA’s chapel. Highly valued by Christopher Hartnett alone.

For all these reasons CMA must be investigated and torn apart. MJD, Hartnett and their inner circle are responsible for psychological torment of multiple persons for personal financial gain.

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 :


And again:


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:


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:


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


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


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“:


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.


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?
