Who Really Authorized Exec Order 12333 & 12334?

From the Dougherty Report Archives: Several troubling pieces of news from different sources came out that gave us a mixed perspective of both President Ronald Reagan and his VP, George H.W. Bush. Was Reagan’s rehabilitation from his assassination attempt longer and more difficult than we were led to believe? Who was actually in charge of the White House in the months after John Hinckley tried to kill Reagan? The implications are staggering, so why has the story of the connection between the Hinckley and Bush families not been fully explored? Executive Orders 12333 and 12334 were signed by President Reagan in December 1981, just months after Reagan’s close brush with death, but it doesn’t seem like something President Reagan would have done. EO 12333 and EO 12334 have the foul smell of the CIA & NSA all over them. Did VP George H.W. Bush push these through while Reagan was convalescing, or was there a “dark side” to Reagan that we never knew? We spoke with William Binney, the former director of the NSA for his thoughts.

  • Why are people bidding to go to Mars?

    From The Dougherty Report Archives: This is crazy. People are actively bidding to take a one-way trip to Mars. Mars, the planet, not the city. Yep. You read that correctly. Here’s what I had to say about that:

Michael's Rant

  • Have A Dream And Follow It

    From 2/25/16: As I write this, it’s after midnight and instead of sleeping, my wife Elizabeth Dougherty is in another room listening to music. She is “recharging” after yet another long day and recharging is the best word I can use to describe it. I’ve learned over the years to give her the time and space she needs to read… to think… and to dream. It wasn’t long ago that she floated the idea to me of hosting a weekday talk show… that in addition to substantially growing the weekend show she’s hosted for the past several years. At first I thought a weekday show was one of those really, really big dreams that your spouse tells you about. You know… the ones where you just smile, say “sure, honey.” I’ve stopped thinking like that, and I damn sure know not to ever say anything so patronizing. When Elizabeth has a dream, I’ve discovered I have two options… find a way to help her make her dreams come true or get left behind. So in just a few hours from now (at 6:06 in the morning) I’ll push the button on the computer screen and the Show Open for “The Daybreak Edition” of The Dougherty Report will play. She truly is “living a dream” working as the morning host at Money Talk 1010 in Tampa Bay. As the music reaches its crescendo, I’ll point to Elizabeth and she’ll begin. It’s amazing to play a part in her “dream” and sometimes I’ll lean back in my squeaky chair and watch as she shares what’s on her heart. She’s animated, she’s passionate, and she’s learned how to convert feelings into words and then to push them through the transmitter. She has big dreams for this show and I don’t think she fully understands just how good of a host she has become. Everyone of us dreams, it’s the way we were wired. Most people today are so close to living out their own dreams (whatever those dreams may be) but they’ll stop just before the finish line. It’s sad. It’s a waste of human potential and I can’t help but feel it’s not what God intended when he gave us dreams in the first place. It’s actually quite a gift if you stop to think about it. So the moral to this story is this: Your life is like a painting. There will be critics and those who claim to be experts, but at the end, only YOU will know whether you got everything out of it and if that painting reached its full potential. Have a dream and follow it… just as Elizabeth is doing right now. The music has stopped in the other room and she just curled up under the blanket. We didn’t get to talk before she drifted off but that’s okay… I know she’s dreaming. Michael Serio Executive Producer The Dougherty Report

  • What Really Happened on the Night of October 7, 2013?

    Only one fact is indisputable: during the US Federal Government shutdown in October 2013, something happened 500-600 miles off the Carolina coast. On the night of October 7, 2013, the USGS registered a 4.5 magnitude “earthquake” at latitude 30.24 N ; longitude 74.18 W. Was it an underseas tremor, or was it something far more dangerous with very serious consequences if true? Dr. Jim Garrow appeared on The Dougherty Report to share what he believes was a botched nuclear EMP attack on the United States orchestrated and ordered by none other than the president himself.
