As I wrap up Nostradamus and the Third Age of Mars, The Prophecies of World War III, I did an Internet Search for an article that I had read in 2014 that claimed well-known Nostradamus Commentator John Hogue was stating that Vladimir Putin was Nostradamus’ Third Antichrist.
That is now a dead link:
(LATE ADD: Thanks to J.S. For Digging Up the Story – The Web Forgets Nothing)
(Apparently, John Hogue Disavows the Article)
Readers can see, however, that it once existed. Perhaps it was an error and John Hogue had the page removed, perhaps John Hogue was being interviewed and gave an off-the-cuff remark. I do not know, but clearly that link existed around August 5th, 2014.
When I was researching this link without digging out my archive of code, I stumbled across a John Hogue article from August 2015 where he was asked by one of his readers about an article I wrote at that time concerning Mr. Hogue’s alleged Vladimir Putin claim.
He did not have some kind words to say about me; so, as someone who has been called a “factually challenged hegemon” on All-Things Nostradamus, I will respond four years later with some facts that should put Mr. Hogue in his place in cyberspace.
First, I began Nostradamus Commentary because of phonies like John Hogue. I have a couple of John Hogue books on my shelf. However, let me give readers the back story to John Hogue’s feelings about G. A. Stewart.
John Hogue and I got into a little Email tiff on August 31st, 2013 because I dared to challenge Mr. Nostradamus after I found some questionable material on his website. The questionable material was Edgar Leoni’s solution of the Noir anagram. It solves to Roi Noir, Black King. On the page I had read on Mr. Hogue’s website, he was taking credit for making that discovery.
Hogue wrote back “so what“. Ultimately, the challenge resolved to who first recognized that Barack Obama was Nostradamus’ Black King.
I made that suggestion in my December 2008 Website Introduction PDF.
As I recall, Mr. Hogue did beat me by several months. However, John Hogue’s position on Nostradamus’ Black King may now have changed. I do not know, because I do not follow his work. When I did follow his work, from my vantage point, Mr. Hogue’s interpretations of Nostradamus’ prophecies seemed to change with the tide.
So, our Email exchange quickly degenerated through no-fault of my own, and I just did not even bother to read his last Email, because I do not mud wrestle or abide pompous fools. To this day, Mr. Hogue’s last Email remains in a folder unopened. Though I do know the day that I will open it and respond.
As most readers know, I do not do Social Media or any Media. A few readers know why.
I do not even bother to check up on John Hogue anymore to see what he is lifting from other Nostradamus researchers, because I do not care who is selling what on The Nostradamus Business Market. I will, however, correct any incorrect material regarding my research when I find it.
Here is my open invitation to all publishers, literary agents, media organizations, or what have you, I have created the ultimate Nostradamus resource book to do my research.
Pull one of John Hogue’s books off the shelf and compare notes to what you will find in my research. A partial list is below.
Most English speaking Nostradamus Commentators have ridden on the coattails of Edgar Leoni’s great 1961 book, The Life and Literature of Nostradamus. The 1982 edition is sold as Nostradamus and His Prophecies. The simple test is to match the same mistakes in Edgar Leoni’s work to the work of John Hogue and others.
Have these Nostradamus Experts published any new Nostradamus’ material since the first 1672 English edition?
You will find four unpublished Presages below, as well as prophecies that have a history of misprinting and mistaken translations that have inspired Nostradamus Commentary for centuries, including my own.
However, after I finished Nostradamus and the Age of Desolation, I finally got a hold of ten of the oldest Nostradamus editions published. I also have the first English edition. So, I built the ultimate Nostradamus Compendium of his oldest writings. You will not find this material on any other Nostradamus website. However, I am expecting the copycats to come out very soon.
Mr. Hogue is one of the clowns that show up center ring when a cable channel is setting up another Nostradamus Circus tent. I do not begrudge him his schtick. Most of us love clowns.
If you are in the Mainstream Media and setting up a Nostradamus Circus tent, shoot me an Email if you think your Nostradamus Expert is factually challenged. I do not do camera or voice, but you can ask questions and I do not charge.
This is my schtick and I love what I do
This is what Mr. Hogue had to say about me in 2015.
I was looking at the website called Age of Desolation (G.A. Stewart) and he had a link to an article about you that made me wonder. In this article it is stated that you wrote a 489-page book called “The Russian Antichrist” (@2014?). This article further states that you claim the Antichrist is Putin. The date of this article is 3/14/14. Having bought many of your books, including the one entitled Nostradamus and The Antichrist: Code Name Mabus from 2008, I was puzzled. I have never heard of the book they mention, nor have I been able to find such on your site… nor do I remember that you definitively name Putin as the Antichrist. Have I missed something?
I told Garry that he hadn’t missed a thing. What he did is something even G.A. Stewart should have done. Especially, since Stewart declares that he is the “World’s Leading Nostradamus Expert.”
One of the empirical signs that you are a “leading” expert is double-checking any facts gleaned off the Internet. Apparently this hegemon of Nostradamia doesn’t even do Google checks, typing in “The Russian Antichrist.” Give it a try, everybody. All you’re going to see connecting me directly to this non-existent book are A.G. Stewart’s article, this Hogueprophecy article dated 5 August 2014, and some fake article extensively making up quotes under my name posted on a wacky cyber-gossip rag based in Tel Aviv noted for its Kosher blarney.
“…Walls of this whale of a Worldwide Web“, that is certainly stretching the use of alliteration. My personal favorite is “hegemon of Nostradamia“.
Well, Mr. Hogue, with our previous history, and my observations about your research, it was easy to believe “some fake article extensively making up quotes“, I am glad you corrected that. Unfortunately, also during my recent search I once again discovered that you are back to stealing more material; this time mine.
I associated Vladimir Putin with Peter the Great almost two decades ago. My suggestion came from The Berlin Lead Tube Prophecies.
Below is John Hogue’s Putin epiphany from 2017.
In J. R. Jochman’s book, Rolling Thunder, he published a set of prophecies that was discovered in 1944 by Nichol Rycempel, a monk, who had found a list of one line prophecies for the 20th century in a lead tube in a bombed out church in Berlin, Germany.
As you can read from my Webpage, this prediction has been up in one form or another since 2008.
John Hogue, you have not done the homework, so let me rub your face in some of my “factually challenged” research.
THE POSEURS AND THE REAL NOSTRADAMUS EXPERT
John Hogue, face up to the reality that you will never be able to claim that you have solved any of the big Nostradamus’ anagrams.
My view of Nostradamus’ prophecies is very unique. Some readers want me to give up on Barack Obama as Nostradamus’ Black King.
I will, if we get to the year 2021 and Barack Obama is still just doing book tours and speaking engagements.
The reality is that he is running a shadow government. I expect some big events in 2019 and 2020.
If I am wrong, I will happily retire from Nostradamus Commentary. If I am not, it will not matter. I am going in the first wave of hypersonic delivered nukes, so I will not care either way and good luck to you all.
The one thing that readers will discover about my work is that it really has not changed over the years.
NOSTRADAMUS’ BLACK KING AND THE PESTILENT WAVE
NOSTRADAMUS AND THE PAGAN SECT OF NEW INFIDELS
You will only find one-hundred and forty-one Presages in every English version of Nostradamus’ “Complete Works”, including in John Hogue’s, Nostradamus the Complete Prophecies, which can now officially be renamed, John Hogue’s, Nostradamus the Incomplete Prophecies.
These first four Presages are missing from that book.
Senat & peuple n’eft content chef delaisse
La cité en arme, la palais on menace,
Les exilés, des exilés ont dressé,
Suyvant le lynx, la nuict mort sus la place,
Nostradamus Presage (31) February 1557
Senate and people are not content chief abandons
The city in arms, the palace menaced,
The exiles of the exiles have drawn up,
Following the lynx, the night dead knowing the location,
G. A. Stewart’s Interpretation: Nostradamus Presage (31) February 1557
The Senate and people are not content. [Commander in] chief abandons [Washington]
The city [Washington] in arms, the palace [White House] menaced,
The exiles of the exiles [terrorists among the refugees] have drawn up [in groups],
Following the lynx [terrorist], the night dead [it cannot hide him, they] know his location,
Fort est à craindre celle expedition,
Celebres morts fuitif est reprins:
Ne Sera, vaine, la grande es motion, (or Ne Sera, vaine, la grande emotion)
Point n’ entrera, qui doutoit d’estre prins.
Nostradamus Presage (32) March 1557
It is strongly feared that [in] shipping,
[A] Famous dead fugitive [he] will be recaptured:
It will not be in vain, the great unrest,
Point will enter, [he] who doubted being captured.
G. A. Stewart’s Interpretation: Nostradamus Presage (32) March 1557
It is strongly feared that [in] shipping,
[A] Famous dead fugitive [he] will be recaptured:
It will not be in vain, [it will cause] great unrest,
[At the] Point [of arms he] will enter, [he] who doubted being caught.
Fait desloyal, mis en mains d’ennemys,
Prins, de nuit, entre, sort, sinistres intrudes
Monstre, du grand conseil bon, l’enfant mis,
L’embushe a siene, & aux Isles [e]stecades.
Nostradamus Presage (33) April 1557
Done disloyal, placed in the hands of enemies,
Caught, at night, between fate, sinister intrusions
Monster, the good great council, the infant placed,
The ambush is his and the Isles boom.
G. A. Stewart’s Interpretation: Nostradamus Presage (33) April 1557
Done disloyal [the Famous dead fugitive], [he will be] placed in the hands of enemies,
Caught, at night, between fate, [and] sinister intrusions [between terrorist acts]
Monster, the good great council [Congress], the infant placed,

Feu vieil chassé par la nouuelle flamme,
A la par fin sera ce qu‘il estoit
Peur, hors de siege, en ioye la grand Dame,
Et non tenu tout ce qu’il’prometoit.
Presage 51 (73) June 1560
Old fire chased by the new flame,
And by the end it shall be what it was
Fear, out of the siege, and joy [to] the great Lady,
And not everything held that was promised.
G. A. Stewart’s Interpretation: Nostradamus Presage (33) June 1560
Old fire chased [out of office] by the new flame,
And by the end it shall be what it was [America restored]
Fear, out of the siege, and joy to the Great Lady,
And not everything held that was promised.
Quant ceulx de polle artiq vnis ensemble,
En Orient grand effrayeur & crainte:
Esleu nouueau, soustenu le grand temple [tremble],
Rodes, Bisance de sang barbare taincte.
Nostradamus Quatrain VI-21
When those of the arctic pole [NATO] unite assembling,
In the Orient [China/Russia] great terror and fear:
Newly elected supporting the great temple,
Rhodes (Greece), Byzantium (Istanbul, Turkey) stained with Barbarian blood.
Nostradamus and the Third Age of Mars, The Prophecies of World War III, G. A. Stewart, 2019
Quatrain VI-21 begins another important Triplicate Series, and there is a nest of them in the very important Century VI. This is also where my research shines. Readers are seeing the correct Quatrain for the first time in publishing history.
To test this theory, go to any published book on Nostradamus’ Centuries and look this Quatrain up.
Quatrain VI-21 presents readers with another printing conundrum. The 1557 edition has “the great temple” in line three. Every edition after that has “the great tremble”, which other Nostradamus Commentators have taken as an allusion to war.
The 1557 Edition was the first printing of this Quatrain and the following Quatrain VI-22 mentions “the great celestial or heavenly temple”. Since Nostradamus was still alive in 1557, I tend to go with “the great temple”. This is clearly a part of a Triplicate Series.
There is a great deal of war-like imagery. “When those of the arctic pole [NATO] unite assembling”, and “Rhodes (Greece), Byzantium (Istanbul, Turkey) stained with Barbarian blood”.
With Temple appearing in the next Quatrain, I am now completely going with the 1557 Edition. Readers should note that no other Nostradamus Commentator in history has discovered these mistakes.
Here is another important Quatrain that suffered from a printing error. After nearly 500 years of Nostradamus Commentary, the mistake has been perpetuated and the interpretations have continued aimlessly.
THE EVOLUTION OF AN ERROR
1557 EDITION ENDS AT CENTURY VII, 42 QUATRAINS
1557 EDITION ENDS AT CENTURY VII, 40 QUATRAINS
Les dix Kalendes d’Apuril de faict Gotique
Resuscité encor par gens malins:
Le feu estainct, assemblée diabolique,
Cherchant les or du d’Amant & Pselyn,
Nostradamus Quatrain I-42
The tenth of the Calends of April in Gothic Count [April 20th]
Revived again by evil people:
The fire extinguished, diabolical assembly
Seeking the gold owed the lover and Pselyn [Henri Selyn].

Nostradamus Quatrain I-40
La trombe faulse dissimulant folie
Fera Bisance vn changement de loys:
Hystra d’Egypte qui veult que l’on deflie
Edict changeant monnoyes & aloys.
Nostradamus Quatrain I-40
False trumpet [Trump/Whirlwind] concealing madness
Makes Byzantium (Turkey) change its laws:
Hystra of Egypt one who wants to protest
[The] Edict changing money and alloys.
I do want to commend Mr. Hogue for getting it right on Quatrain I-40. La Trombe is La Trompe in many editions, and even Edgar Leoni got that wrong.
Mr. Hogue went with the interpretation from J. R. Jochman’s book, Rolling Thunder, even though Trompe means horn. This is not the correct way it was originally printed, but Mr. Hogue did get that right.
I went with Edgar Leoni’s translation in Nostradamus and the Age of Desolation because the edition that Edgar Leoni used had Trompe.
Frankly, La Trombe as Whirlwind does not work, and with the printing errors that I have encountered, I may have gone the way Mr. Hogue did too. Since J. R. Jochman did not print the original Old French verse, it is difficult to know how he came up with his interpretation.
I am currently going with the anagram Trump, with a Nostradamus wink to La Trombe translated as it should be, The Whirlwind. I would like to thank George Ure for pointing out this alternate interpretation and the multidimensional aspect. Trump’s motto and that of The Q PYSOP is, “The Storm is Here“.
THE FALSE TRUMP OR THE FALSE TRUMPET
Mr. Hogue has provided some good interpretations, some I fully accept and most importantly cite when I use. However, I have corrected a number of John Hogue’s errors in my forthcoming book.
I am half-way through proofing Nostradamus and the Third Age of Mars, The Prophecies of World War III. Unlike Mr. Hogue, I do not make a living providing Nostradamus Commentary, so my free time is extremely limited. Thanks for your patience.
This Website will eventually become a repository of Nostradamus’ original writings.
