In 2015, Daily Beast editor Abby Haglage wrote a hit piece about me and claimed I lied about my military service based off of two sources of information. Her article is inaccurate and some would even say it meets the standard of fake news.

Why would I write about this now? A new video of Abby has surfaced online. She makes revealing statements about her character, which, in my opinion, should cause readers of The Daily Beast great alarm. We will get to that video in a moment.
Before we do, I’d like to briefly address her poorly researched article (read it here).
Her first source of information comes from VacTruth’s “About” page. I state in my profile that I was “… a rescue swimmer in the United States Navy and held a Top Secret clearance.” These are both accurate and true statements which I will get to shortly.
Her second source of information came in the form of an e-mail. She inquired about my military service with the Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs.
According to Abby, their response stated I served as an Information Systems Technician, third-class (IT3), and noted, “This is all the releasable information we have.” It is highly likely Abby left the fact I was honorably discharged out of her article.
These are also both accurate responses by Naval Public Affairs. How can this be?
Abby used the combination of the two sources in her article as “proof” I lied about my military service. Here’s where her poor analytical skills become apparent.
Abby then projected her misunderstanding and delusions to also imply I was claiming to be a “Navy SEAL” (for the record, I have never claimed to be one).
She would have benefited from searching the term “Stolen Valor” prior to making such an uninformed comment.
Finally, to answer the question, “Could I have been an Information Systems Technician role and a Rescue Swimmer at the same time?” The answer is yes.
I was an Information Systems Technician, 3rd class (with a clearance) and also the ship’s rescue swimmer. Everything Abby implied is fake news, but we shouldn’t be too hard on her. She was likely being directed and influenced by management on what to write.
Now, on to Abby …
Abby Haglage writes for several publications, most notably The Daily Beast. Her list of articles can be seen here.
The articles show a clear bias towards promoting the dangerous and untested Centers for Disease Control vaccine schedule. She covers topics such as Ebola, marijuana, and real-life vampires that drink blood. 
The Daily Beast also has a column for Dr. Paul Offit who once said over 100,000 vaccines were safe to inject into your child. We shouldn’t be surprised The Daily Beast promotes a pro-pharmaceutical agenda. This information may become important in the future, so please note it.
The video you are about to see was filmed at the comedy club known as the Village Underground, dated October 17, 2015.
In my opinion, she appears to be more truthful about her own character than funny. I’m going to warn you, her performance is very painful to watch as most of her jokes fall flat. I’ve summarized her notable lines below.
There are thousands of topics to choose from for a performance. She chooses to tell us what a great liar and bullsh*tter she is. Is there some truth to what Abby says in her “comedy” skit? Watch the video below and you be the judge.
From my perspective, readers of Abby’s articles should be skeptical of her motives – they likely are not her own. If I were them, I would question her material and sources much more intensely. One could vouch for her character by looking no further than her toothbrush holder.
I hope your seven minutes of fame was worth it, Abby.
