Undercover FBI agent Bob Hamer

Bob Hamer retired from the Federal Bureau of Investigation after 26 years as a Special Agent. He worked organized crime, gangs, terrorism, and child exploitation. Much of his career was spent undercover. In assignments lasting anywhere from several days to more than three years, Bob successfully posed as a drug dealer, contract killer, residential burglar, fence, pedophile, degenerate gambler, international weapons dealer, and white-collar criminal.

He worked undercover against such diverse groups as the La Cosa Nostra, the Sicilian, Mexican, and Russian mafias, Asian organized crime groups, and Los Angeles based street gangs. His successful infiltration of NAMBLA (North American Man/Boy Love Association) resulted in the arrest of eight members of what one defendant called the organization's "inner circle".

Bob received numerous awards throughout his career including the coveted FBI Director's Award for Distinguished Service, five United States Attorney Awards for Distinguished Service, and numerous letters of commendation including one from then US Attorney Rudy Giuliani.

Bob, a member of the Writers Guild of America and the Writers Guild of Canada, has written for television. He has worked as the technical advisor for The Inside and Angela's Eyes and has consulted for Law & Order: SVU and Sleeper Cell. He has appeared as a guest on numerous TV and radio programs including Oprah, Sean Hannity, The 700 Club, and Laura Ingraham. He is the author of three award-winning books: THE LAST UNDERCOVER: The True Story of an FBI Agent's Dangerous Dance with Evil (Hachette Book Group, USA, Center Street Press and AE Publishing Group); a novel, ENEMIES AMONG US (B&H Publishing, Fidelis); and a second novel, TARGETS DOWN (B&H Publishing). Bob has also released three novellas: DETOUR TO JUSTICE, EXPENDABLE FOR THE CAUSE, and BLOOD IN THE DESERT (Post Hill Press). He collaborated with New York Times best-selling author Oliver North to write AMERICAN HEROES ON THE HOMEFRONT (Simon and Schuster) and COUNTERFEIT LIES (Simon and Schuster).

A Marine Corps veteran, Bob is married and has two children.

This is my first ever livestream with the great Chase Hughes. Chase is a behavioral expert and the author of "Ellipsis Behavior." He has made a deep study and practice of the techniques involved in mind control. These include persuasion, body language reading, hypnosis, negotiation, interrogation, and more.

I am excited to share this livestream with you and I intend to do more of them weekly and they are a fantastic opportunity for you to ask questions directly of Unstructured guests. 

I don't intend to publish any more of them in the podcast feed as there may be visual elements and I would love for you to discover them and participate.
