Matthew Joseph Lawrence

US coppers appear to have arrested “living god ” and opener of hell holes EA Koetting on drugs and weapons charges

Inspector Knacker of the Washington County Drug Task Force stopped a man called Matthew Joseph Lawrence, 33 in the Bloomington area.

He will face five third-degree felony counts for possession of drugs, one third-degree felony count of being restricted possessors of a firearm, and one misdemeanour count each for possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Cops, completely unaware that they were arresting a living God, apparently were acting on a tip from a confidential informant. It looks like the followers of Satan cannot get the reliable evil minions they used to.

After conducting the traffic stop, investigators searched the roommates’ residence in the 500 West block of Los Alamitos Drive.

The search uncovered cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana and other drugs, along with a gun, Whitehead said.

The reason we say that Koetting “appears to have been arrested” is based on the picture, which is a good likeness and the other reason is that a while back his Facebook page featured a comment from someone who claimed that Koetting’s real name was Matthew Joseph Lawrence. We were going to follow up on this one, but we were a little slow, because our expert was away in the Far East.


The reason we were interested was that Lawarence had a new job – apparently, he was an Apprentice Carpet cleaner for Atlas Carpet Cleaning Company. There he is known by the name Matt who is guaranteed to get that coffee stain off your rug.


While we respect anyone out there who cleans carpets for a living, it is not a job one expects a Living God to be required to do.  Particularly if you are making a hell of a lot tapping your demons for cash. After all water into wine is one thing, getting wine out of the carpet is another.

Given that he was supposed to be the sort of person who could open a hellmouth we are surprised to learn that this particular Prince of Evil is a a positive, hardworking and intelligent young man.

However, we have to admit that this story has been eclipsed by the drugs and weapons charges. That is a little more rock ‘n roll and something you would expect to have on your rap sheet. Well, not really if you truly were an evil god you would expect a few mass murders, and at least a couple of beheadings. Possession charges are not the same as dealing charges, and if you were in the UK you probably would not get sent down for a first offence,  The US is a little harder on these but a little software on the firearms offences — after all it is practically compulsory to carry a gun over there.

However, the charges do indicate that far from being a Living God, Koetting’s magical street cred, along with his persona is a complete sham. Not only is he not a prince of darkness, he is a low level criminal who spends his days crawling on carpets for stains.

There are two ways that Koetting could setting this:

1. He denies that he is not Lawrence (which we would think was a jolly odd coincidence that a bloke who looks like Koetting should be arrested after being outed as Lawrence the carpet cleaner only a few days before.

2. The charges are mysteriously dropped and the body of the informant is found eaten by wolves in his own house.



The CEO of the book publisher New Falcon Press has been arrested and charged with sex crimes against young men, in an amazing ending to the messy story of the publishing outfit.

Michael Miller, 50, ran his own basketball school from his home and his been charged with sexual battery and illegally filming young men with a concealed camera in his bathroom. Miller has denied the charges.

LAPD Det. Daniel Aguirre told the LA Times Miller was suspected of secretly filming at least four male students, but that there may be other victims. He said Miller is facing one count of sexual battery and eight counts of illegal filming.

The investigation began in November after four of Miller’s students told police that their coach summoned them, on separate occasions to his East Hollywood home, according to a search warrant. The players said they occasionally showered at Miller’s residence after basketball workouts.

The students discovered a camera filming the toilet and bath hidden inside a silver clock. The players, out-of-state students staying at a nearby residence, gave police a memory card that one player removed from the secret camera. The card contained videos that are now evidence in the case, Aguirre said.

Three of the players also alleged that Miller touched them inappropriately, according to the search warrant. The students told police that they resisted.

Miller is the biological son of Alan Miller better known as Christopher S. Hyatt. Hyatt and Georgia divorced when he was an infant, and she married Benjamin Graber who adopted Michael Miller. He and Hyatt had no contact until around 1985, when as a young adult he tracked Alan down, and shortly thereafter changed his name to Michael Miller.

Christopher S. Hyatt was the CEO of New Falcon, and after his death in 2008, the book publishing company was taken over by his son Michael Miller.

However, the take-over was shrouded in controversy. According to Hyatt’s widow Linda Miller he had no experience, background, training or interest in book publishing, metaphysics, psychology or philosophy and had never read any of the books published by New Falcon Publications, including his fathers.

While his Hyatt was dying, Miller arranged for him to sign over New Falcon to him. The signing was never contested because Hyatt’s widow Linda Miller felt it would be long and expensive to take her stepson to court. She formed “The Original Falcon Press” with Nick Tharcher.

Miller did get his paws on an impressive back catalogue of his father’s work, Israel Regardie and some Crowley titles. Christopher Hyatt, Robert Anton Wilson, Timothy Leary, Lon Milo DuQuette, OSHO and Aleister Crowley.

There were calls for New Falcon Press to be boycotted but that went no-where.  There will be some in the occult community that would see the arrests and bad publicity for Miller as some much needed karma catching up with him.



Nick Farrell gets cease and desist request for “exposing occult secrets”

photoThe chief adept of the Magical Order of the Auroa Aurea, Nick Farrell has been sent a cease and desist letter from the head of a German occult order which claims that he has published its secrets.

Farrell released a book HIDDEN PATH BEHIND INITIATION a couple of weeks back based on a translation of a masonic book released in the 19th century.

Apparently Farrell has received a letter from a German order with the catchy title Auserwählte der Neun und der Fünfzehn which claims his book publishes its secrets.

The letter is signed by Degenhard Haus who says he is the Chevalier-Adepte of the Order.

“I am not aware how you obtained this information, but I request you honourably remove this book from publication to preserve the sanctity of this Order and the oaths that its members have made,” Haus wrote.

“As you will no doubt be aware, our Order was founded in 1790 under the direction of the authors of the CRATA ROPOA and we do not wish our secrets published,” the letter concludes.

Farrell tells us that he has never heard of the Auserwählte der Neun und der Fünfzehn and thinks the whole thing might be a hoax. He said he tried to contact the writer saying he would not pull the book and received no reply.

“People have tried to stop me publishing before and it might be just an attempt to stop me doing so again.  However, I would be really curious to know WHICH secrets I am alleged to have revealed,” Farrell said.

Farrell did not think that his book would have much impact on Auserwählte der Neun und der Fünfzehn and its secrets.

“There are only going to be 100 copies of the book ever made and they are in English,” he pointed out.





Happy days in the Aahathoor Temple when members of the French Temple greeted their leader by placing lace knickers on their face.

David “protect a kiddy pornographer” Griffin has gone on the attack against those who used to be his loyal members and dismissed their religion and sanity.

Writing in his blog this morning l Griffin released a stinging attack on Tomas Stacewicz claiming he was a “Roman Catholic” and turning the Magical Golden Dawn into a “personal vision of a hodgepodge of Christian Mysticism jumbled with Freudian psychology and Golden Dawn teachings.”

Under the headline “Why do Psychiatric Patients Found Golden Dawn Orders or Become Therapists?” Griffin showed his nasty side in a broadside attack on Stacewicz which also implied his former loyal supporter was a psychiatric head-case.

This comes from a Griffin who was initiated from 0=0 to 6=5 by a former psychiatric patent of Israel Regardie (Pat Behmin) and has long been a student of Regardie’s psychological approach to magic.   Griffin’s post implied that Stacewicz received psychiatric treatment at some point in the past.  We can’t prove that, but even if it were true so what?

It is not something which the chief of an order should be sharing with everyone in a pretty useless attempt to attack a former member. We would have thought that most occultists at some point have had a brush with counsellors, or shrinks as they have to process the material their work brings up. The fact that someone is prepared to undergo such treatment is a sign that their magic is working. It is certainly a breach of trust, oath and power to be snidely bought up in your blog.

Griffin has gone on record as backing Regardie’s suggestion that people undergo therapy before conducting magical training.  It seems that if they do, he will use that information if they leave.

We have been warned by some former Griffinittes that one of the reasons they dragged their heels leaving his Order was that they feared that information like this would be made public or used against them.  This is one of the reasons that they have chosen to remain secretive after leaving so that they do not attract this sort of attention.

Meanwhile the ruler of Griffin’s Paris Ahathoor temple (number 7)  has found themselves at odds with the AO’s co-founder Pascal Ruggiu.  The name Ahathoor temple (number 7) was the name of Mather’s Paris temple which for years Griffin and Ruggiu insisted was the original AO temple.

Ruggiu quit Griffin’s order after the latter wrote an insulting letter to his secret chiefs and always claimed to be running Ahathoor.  Griffin to keep up appearances lured one of Ruggiu’s former chiefs  “Aude Valfoy” over to the darkside to pretend that it was “business as normal.”

Our sources in Paris suggested that “Aude Valfoy” did not have enough members to actually run the temple and all European members were being initiated in Germany or Dublin.  That was until the Germans also quit, leaving Dublin as Griffin’s only working temple.

All that would have gone un-noticed if it had not been for Ruggiu appointing “Meleph Ashagar” to run Paris Ahathoor temple (number 7)  and the latter setting up a Facebook page

Valfoy went onto the site and declared that the Paris Ahathoor temple (number 7) was a fraud because the Griffin version was still running (under the leadership of Valfoy).  That angered Ruggiu  who told Valfoy he was forbidden to use the Anathoor name.  He said that the Ahathoor  warrant was personally signed by Desmond Burke as an Exempt Adept.

If that is the case we would love to see a copy, we had been told that Ruggiu’s warrant was signed by Robert Word who was given it by a friend of Burke.  Burke later denied he had any rights to give out any warrants.  Ruggiu claims he gave Griffin the 7=4 (again that does not fit with the eye witness story we have of Ruggiu and Griffin being given them in Robert Word’s kitchen by Robert Word).

That Valfoy  post has now been pulled but we did manage to snap a copy below first.

If Ruggiu is not careful, Griffin will publish his medical and religious secrets to shut him up.  That is if Griffin really wants to stir that hornet’s nest.
