- Once again, net fascists and terrorists are trying to
take away your rights. These new Brown Shirts are ready to burn your books,
and ours, and to financially destroy anyone who gets in the way of their
plans for total domination and thought control...for they are absolutely
petrified of the truth.
- Rense.com and its advertisers continue to stand firm
in the face of these dual-loyalty thugs and their pernicious and increasing
threats to our First Amendment rights, Freedom of the Press and Freedom
of Inquiry. We will not cease bringing our visitors the widest range of
sometimes controversial information for your personal intellectual consideration.
You deserve ALL the facts, all the viewpoints and opinions in order to
make your best decisions about the most critical issues of our times. These
dark forces dedicated to destroying our individual liberties and freedom
of speech have no qualm threatening and harassing our supporters, friends
and our brave advertisers.
- This newest round of attacks on OUR freedoms are not
the first, as our regular visitors know. See: Attempts To Silence Rense.com Continue
To Smear Rense.com As 'Anti-Semitic' Continue )
- The current spate of assaults is the most explicit and
outrageous yet. The following is an actual email which was spammed out
to several of our advertisers with their individual company names subbed
in -- all of whom remain resolute in standing up to terror, or, as one
rense.com ad client put it:
- "I don't like being threatened by anyone, especially
when I'm not guilty. They can go to hell!!!!!"
- Unfortunately, attacks by these people do not stop at
the keyboard. Staff and individuals at other 'target' net sites have received
telephoned death threats...clear and unambiguous civil rights violations.
These matters have been turned over to the FBI.
- Threatening E-Mail Sent To Several Rense.com
- You have chosen to advertise on www.rense.com, the web
site owned and operated by Jeff Rense. This web site is a notorious anti-Semitic
site that disseminates vicious Jew-hatred. Under the guise of First Amendment
protection, Rense and his cohort James Neff provide a platform for Holocaust-Denial
and intolerance towards Jews.
- Your advertising dollars help support this person. It
is, of course, your First Amendment right to do so.
- However, if you choose to continue to support Rense,
it is OUR First Amendment Right to send out the following message on the
68,000 Usenet Newsgroups, as well as mass mailings to your potential customers,
as well as fliers in the city and area in which your company is located:
- (Business Name) SUPPORTS INTOLERANCE AND BIGOTRY
- Are you aware that (Business Name) supports with its
advertising dollars a vicious anti-Semitic web site that promotes hatred
- Jeff Rense, the proprietor of www.Rense.com claims that
he is simply a journalist reporting the news. Yet the 'news' that he reports
seems to concentrate on the alleged misdeeds of Jews. When called upon
to explain himself, Rense claims that he is only anti-Zionist, not anti-Semitic.
- Yet, if it is only a matter of being anti-Zionist, then
why does Rense devote so much space and provide a platform to those who
deny the Holocaust, or who promote forgeries like the Protocols of the
Elders of Zion, which purport to be the blueprints for a Jewish plan to
take over the world?
- How does Rense explain the following articles that he
prints and promotes?
- "World Jewry Declared Total War On Germany In 1933"
- [Rense actually tries to explain that it was in fact
the Jews who started World War II, and it was their alleged boycott that
forced a supposedly reluctant Germany to promote anti-Jewish laws, and,
ultimately, genocide against six million Jews]
- Rense repeatedly reiterates his pet theory that Jews
control the United States:
- 'Yisraelim (JEWS) Prepare for the Invasion of America'
- The Yisraelis could not fan out to the east without risking
a catastrophic response from Russia, so they took the only course available.
On 6 June 1982 they moved north into the Lebanon, determined to blood their
young inexperienced soldiers and magically transform them into Yisraelim
terrorists in less than six months. With each battalion under the watchful
eye of two experienced Mistaravim [Yisraeli Civilian Special Forces], the
young soldiers were instructed in the special art of Jewish warfare, where
all Goyim [non-Jews] deserve to die.
- Rense also concentrates on the Jewish background of politicians:
- 'John Kerry is a practicing Catholic - but his Grandfather
lived in the Czech Republic and his name was Fritz Kohn, a Jew, who changed
his name to Kerry in 1902. '
- 'Most 'Jewish' US
- Presidential Election Ever??
- Rense also prints trash like this:
- 'Who Really Controls Poland?'
- I was shocked to get today a copy of the Peter Myers
newsletter Peter Myers newsletter which explains that Poland today is NOT
Polish or catholic anymore, IT IS JEWISH! It is under complete Zionist/Israeli/Jewish
control. ALMOST EVERYBODY in the Polish government today is Jewish! The
enclosed email is a wonderful example of The Protocols Of The Elders Of
- [Note: It is unbelievable and disgusting that Rense would
suggest that Poland, a country in which 3 million Jews were slaughtered
by the Nazis, leaving only a small population of some 3000 Jews, is still
somehow controlled by Jews.]
- (Business Name) supports this racist pig. If you believe
that (Business Name) is wrong, please contact them and let them know:
- (Business Name)
- (The Ad clients email address and business phone number)
- And if they continue to support this Jew-hater, perhaps
you should make a point of NOT purchasing their products.
- (END OF EMAIL)
- Not only are these allegations absurd but they are also
defamatory and desperate. What especially aggravates these people is the
enormous number of honest Jews who support Rense.com. These Jews of conscience
have a keen interest in reading ALL viewpoints and collecting as much information
as they can. And, lest our enemies forget, many of our regular Columnists
and contributors are Jewish who staunchly defend our rights of Free Speech
and freedom of inquiry. Another pin-headed criticism is that we personally
WRITE the news stories from around the world we present. Our magnificent
Jewish brethren...from all over the world...have now realized how their
religion and their country have been usurped by Zionism. Jews against Zionism is one of the most courageous
organizations on the net, for example. We suggest you visit their site.
- While Zionist prisoners of conscience such as Ernst Zundel
rot away in prison for daring to examine history anew, while Zionist groups
work double-time to intimidate and harass individuals, net sites and businesses
in order to silence, obfuscate and destroy reputations and lives, those
who cherish freedom - and who are not afraid to read material they may
disagree with - must stand firm against them with the solidarity and conviction
of one engaged in a war. We ask that all Rense.com visitors not only voice
their opinion about this threat to our Liberty but that they also show
these goons that their tactics will not effect this site or its operation
by continuing to patronize our most excellent sponsors, supporters, friends
and advertisers who bravely and consistently stand with us for personal
freedom of speech and freedom to read whatever we want. If we fail, these
people will one day try to fill new concentration camps with political
prisoners like us...and another Holocaust would occur.
- From Scott Rosenstein
- I, for one, am sick and tired of the radical zionists
taking our religion and using it as a tool of manipulation and intimidation.
My family and my friends believe in our First Amendment as probably the
most important single right we possess. It is a GOD-given right. We Jews,
like many other groups, have paid terrible prices in the past. But it is
way past time to stop using our dead as a political weapon. Everyone should
read Dr. Finkelstein's book, 'The Holocaust Industry' as a prime case in
point of why we continue to set ourselves up for criticism. The victims
of other Holocausts deserve to be honored just as are we. Murder is murder.
Human life is all precious. No more zionism! While I don't always agree
with the stories you post, I am better off for having the chance to read
them than not. Thanks, Jeff, for being so strong. You have our hopes and

news system administrator with an awareness of the Briedbart index could
From Steve H.
- I tell everyone about your site. It is informative and
just doesn't focus on the negative. I get on it every day to see what is
going on in the world. I tried many other sights to include drudge and
newsmax, but your site is far better. Now, some of the articles are somewhat
flaky, but, I guess you have to offer something for everyone when involved
in the media form you have chosen.
- I am involved in many things to include philosophy, theosophy,
religion, cosmology, earth science and psychology; to name just a few.
I know the hard work you must put forth every day, and I am sure you will
continue to provide the world with a great service. This is probably one
of the greatest centuries that mankind will experience. The only thing
that will bring us down is Tribalism. The more educated a society is, the
better we all become. Hopefully we will evolve to make this a better world
for everybody and everything.
- The War Intensifies
- By Jerry L. Gardner
- Dear Jeff,
- As I stated in a recent commentary, it hurts when one
stands in, and for truth, however, this is our (your) calling, and probably
one of the greatest signs that you are being effective is when the "enemy"
attacks with all viciousness, venom and hatred such as the Zionest/fascist
are attacking you (Rense.Com) with now. Only an individual who just recently
arrived on planet earth, or one totally devoid of any knowledge of either
current or past political Israeli activities world wide, especially the
demonic handling of the Palestine communities, could deny the real and
immediate threat of the Zionist cabal. Here are a "people" supposedly
speaking for the entire Jewish community (which I doubt seriously, because
most "real" Jews are Godly people) attempting to convince the
rest of us of just how "persecuted" they are.
- These are the same "nice" Jews who not long
ago ran over and murdered a harmless American girl who was attempting to
show them and the world what love is all about, murdered with a huge military
type bull dozer by a couple of real macho soldiers. These are the "nice"
people shooting ten and eleven year old children down in the streets with
their massive military weapons. These are the "nice" people who
are taking the land and homes of helpless families simply because of their
race and razing their modest homes forcing them to live in the elements
without food or shelter.
- Oh yes, I fully know the story of Jacob and Esau, Jacob
have I loved and Esau have I hated, and who God gave the land of Israel
to, but, here again the Zionist (and most churches controlled by Israel)
have twisted God's word and spiritual intent to serve their evil, greedy
purpose of world control. These are the "nice" lovable people
who continue to use the holocaust and the horrible events of WW2 as a weapon
and excuse to further their cause of greed and power by continually playing
on the sympathy of the world, as bad as it was....give me a break...get
- These Zionists are using the holocaust as a leverage,
a "woe is me" and turning the sympathy of the world into contempt,
just as American leaders have done with 911. Just about every nationality
on earth, including Caucasians, as well as blacks, have suffered persecution
and the horrors of man's inhumanity to man, it's happening in Iraq right
today as well as Africa and other nations throughout the world, where is
the outcry here? Where is the Jewish concern for Africa, or America's concern
for that matter? Are the Iraqis more human than Africans? Is Israel more
important than South America? Or, is there little or no oil in Africa to
exploit? Where IS justice?
- The holocaust can't touch the Roman Inquisition for pain,
slaughter, hatred, maiming, persecution and the total number of deaths
of decent and good men, women, children, and babies ripped from their mother's
wombs, which was in the tens of millions, simply because they refused to
serve the Roman God, the Pope, yet we don't hear the Christians of today
moaning and crying continually, as inhumane as it was life goes on, God
will be the final judge. Note: Sadly, this will happen again.
- I don't think we need to spend a lot of time trying to
convince the world of the power the Zionist/fascist Jews weld in every
segment of life, education, banking, religion, medicine, wars, and so on,
it would be redundant. I believe we need to concentrate on the truth and
disseminating the truth to an obviously deceived America, and world. There
is an old saying which goes, Satan rarely bothers those he already controls,
their lives will be a testimony of his reality and control, they will self
destruct. Satan goes after those he cannot control, those who resist him,
those who stand to cause him the most resistance, those who do good, mainly
the children of God. This is a war between God and Satan and we, as God's
creation, are Satan's quest, his prize. Satan can't hurt God, so the coward
(Satan) attacks by and through hurting and causing pain to God's people,
God's children. If you really want to hurt a man then don't attack the
man, kill or harm his children, or his wife. I could probably withstand
a mental or physical beating or persecution, however, should someone put
their filthy paws on one of my children, or my wife, I would most likely
crumble and fall if I couldn't defend them (without God's divine help).
Satan uses the same devices, he (and his followers) are the ultimate cowards
and scumbags, they attack the weak and the helpless.
- When we see Satan, or any enemy (same thing) go on a
strong offensive, when we see him expose his fangs and begin to slander,
malign, and make noise, then we can know for certain that we have hit the
soft under belly of his game plan, his empire. We have scored a victory.
Innocence and truth, require little, if any defense. You Jeff are innocent
of any malignant activity, that is, unless truth has become a malignancy
today. You simply provide a source of (for) truth, you don't "create"
- Jeff, you must realize where these attacks are originating
at the present time. Mel Gibson has just created a movie soon to be released
(February 25) with serious spiritual implications for the betterment of
mankind, a godsend to the world in a dark hour, a movie with the potential
for exposing Satan to whole world for what he is, and for what he has done.
Also, a movie which will show the entire world what "real" LOVE
is; What do we suppose Satan is going to do, sit idle and accept this fact?
I don't think so. The world still cries; "Give us Barabbas."
The chief Priest and the Elders (watered down religious systems) are still
persuading the masses to ask for Barabbas, evil for good, (discerning minds
- As I stated in an earlier commentary, the swords have
been drawn, the battle (spiritual) is raging, we are being clearly told
by our Lord to "choose sides," the time is here, not coming,
for all to decide where they stand, either for righteousness, or for the
world (antichrist, the "Beast" system). My lord, look at the
half time ????Show???? during the Super Bowl if we want an illustration
of just how low and perverted we have sunk morally. Virtual sex on stage
in front of millions of our families and children and we don't even blink
an eye! Accident??? Yeah, right!
- Jeff, these attacks should not discourage you, on the
contrary, they should strengthen and embolden and empower you, for you
have obviously landed a direct hit on the enemy by supplying a forum for
the truth. Now is the time to advance, not retreat, while the enemy is
staggering under his own hatred, contempt, and confusion. If we allow these
Zionist devils to stop free speech, to shut down any news site or source,
then we are no better than "book burning" Nazi Germany and we
deserve our fate.
- I believe you have an army of praying people in constant
prayer for you Jeff. I don't mean the deceived masses in these mega churches
in America who have been erroneously persuaded that we are to support Israel,
"right or wrong," it's "the will of God," I mean "real"
children of the most high God, those who know where the home of the antichrist
will be and where he will rule from. Israel may be a state, but it is far
from holy and far from God. But, God will remedy that soon, just as he
had to do so many times in the past, God made that promise to Abraham.
- Matthew 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination
of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,
(whoso readeth, let him understand:)
- Some will understand the following, most will not. The
world has embarked on a scenario so brutal and so dangerous that it boggles
the mind, and only God can stop it now. If we think the Holocaust and the
Inquisition (mentioned above) were terrible, then we are in for a rude
awakening. Events are formulating which will see God's church undergo the
most brutal persecutions ever devised by demonic man. Jeff, you are seeing
only a small sampling of the hatred and venom which will eventually overwhelm
all true Christian's, the stage is being set now. We have already been
declared "enemies of the state." The days of fence riding are
over! This won't be just the Zionist and their non Christian ilk, it will
be a combination of the Zionist infiltrated "Whore Church" religious
system now prevalent throughout the world and the God hating antichrist
system called the "Beast." Only the spiritually blind fail to
see this developing at a rapid rate today, almost logarithmically. God
doesn't mince words, every word in God's bible is a powerhouse, a bombshell
- Matthew 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such
as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever
- This is no idle or small statement!
- So Jeff, this "war" is much, much larger than
one might believe at first glance, this "war" is a war for the
survival of souls, the culmination of all things. You can be a mighty force
for good in God's army by taking the arrows and darts of hell and standing
in the gap, you will not lose your reward. Believe me...it's going to go
from this to worse, according to God's word!
- To detail the events transpiring today would take volumes,
a book,,,,by the way, the "book" is available to all who wish
knowledge, it's called God's word, the bible.
- So, put on the whole armor Jeff, arm yourself with God's
word, shod your feet with the gospel, and stand in the power of the Holy
Ghost, the truth will stand when the world is on fire. Satan may win a
few horrible battles soon, and we may be called upon to suffer for the
Lord's cause, but we KNOW who will win the war! It isn't so much about
how we go in, its how we come out on the other side. Do we stand, or do
we surrender? I really like the writer's advice to "make a stand,
make a stand, make a stand!" My only concern is, that our stand be
made in a spirit of love and truth, not the hatred I sense being spewed
out by your attackers. God will turn their venom into a victory for his
cause. This will only make it possible for many more millions to read your
site and to see Mel's movie... thanks Satan, for the free advertising.
Satan really is stupid, isn't he?
- Matthew 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you,
and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely,
for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward
in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. 13
"Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour,
wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to
be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. 14 Ye are the light of
the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.

by my numerous emails to you, I visit your web site often and listen to
your broadcasts when my limited time permits.
- Anti-Zionist, yes I am, Anti-Cristian Extremist, yes
I am. As many free thinking Americans, I have a problem with any zealot

world should be! May our Extraterrestrial creators bless you. Quoting one
of my favorite articles your brother recently wrote... "There all
- From Sheryl Jackson
- Jewish Hypocrisy and Korp speak.
- It is easy to recognize the truth when one hears it.
The pages of Rense.com are the opinions of some, articles by others, essays
and sometimes rants. None of them appear to me to be Anti-Semitic. Like
children, they do not believe the world at large have any grey cells to
think with. We are supposed to believe that this is God's Plan? To kill
the Palestinians? My God has no need of the slaughter of any of His people.
My God IS a weapon of Mass Destruction. He surely does not need man to
do His dirty work. If God wanted the Palestinians dead it would happen
in a heartbeat.
- The Jews of Israel have made their own beds, they now
have to lie in them. Anyone who has watched the news can see for themselves
that the Jews wish to commit genocide against the Palestinians. The films
of the Jews killing the Palestinians could be spliced into the films of
the German SS killing the Jews. Violence is violence and no matter who
is perpetuating it, it is WRONG,WRONG,WRONG.
- Genocide is genocide and by any other name it is still
MURDER, MAYHEM AND MADNESS.
- If the Jews want to have people stop hating them for
their violence then they must stop being violent. Their actions create
the world's opinions of them.
- None of us is what we say we are, but every single human
on the planet is what they do. The Jews are presently living as Homicidal
Maniacs, they have built a wall like the Berlin Wall to keep out the MISCREANTS
AND CRIMINALS, but they still manage to get into the Israeli state with
suicidal bombings. The Palestinians are people who don't want to be murdered.
Fighting back is a rational response to irrational, illogical, unreasonable
homicidal behavior. Who is going to stand still and be murdered if they
have an opportunity to MOVE, ADAPT OR DIE??????????
- What we see is what the Jewish state does. No question
about it. We have witnessed their murderous armies, we have even lost our
own children to the tanks of the Israelis who kill the Peaceniks. What
is not to hate about these atrocities and abominations? Everytime they
kill a Palestinian they are saying, we are evil, vile, contemptible people
who only believe in ourselves to rule, to live and to make judgements against
- I think that when Jesus returns, he is going to be really
ticced off at "God's Chosen People". Talk about a Passion for
Insurrection. This is not God's plan this is the ego of one more blonde,
blue-eyed Fat, Beastly White Man in charge AND LIKE HITLER HE HAS TALKED
THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL INTO CARRYING OUT HIS HOMICIDAL AGENDA.

Jews. It is simply an information stockpile for us users to be able to
use as reference, and contains news for those of us who like more than

dumbed down media.

I really appreciate it. And I especially love when you have Dr. Day on.

- Dear Angry Zionists
- If you had emailed sound and mannerly rebuttals to the
articles you used as examples, they would have been published as 'Comments'.
Instead of putting time and effort into a heavy-handed smear campaign,
why don't you submit decent articles with strong arguments refuting what
you feel to be "trash"? The methods you now employ harm the image
you think you are defending.
- From Alton Raines
- If we were really dealing with issues of Jewish sensitivity,
there might be room for debate. But very clearly these people who perpetually
wage their little mindless jihad's against Rense.com, and others (no doubt!)
are merely teaching everyone what Fascism is all about. They are an unwitting
participant, if not instructor, in the awakening of millions to the fraud,
abuse, obfuscation and illusion the Zionist mind has perpetrated and perpetuated
for generations. Thinking themselves wise, they have become fools.
- The more they rant and throw their hissy fits, the more
people take a second look. And as they close their eyes for sleep, and
the days thoughts are running through their head one last time, that little
nagging suspicion, that curious human-nature element clicks on and says
"Wait just damned minute..." and one by one, here and there,
tens of thousands of people gently wake up from the Zionist dream and no
longer wander around like unblinking zombies to dancing to the pipes of
pan and the dictates and manipulations of Zionist mind control. And they
will know and see the difference between the Jewish reality, of human dignity
and respect for all people and creeds, and Zionist evil, which denies all
this but demands it solely and exclusively for itself, with great heaping
cries of Shoah! and all the pomp and circumstance that can be bankrolled
to maintain the follies. They do it in the media, they do it in the arts,
they do it in corporate board rooms and even in the stinking White House.
Sure, they'll continue to call everyone a Nazi who breaks free of the trance.
They'll go right on milking WWII for all its worth. But time passes and
the impact and solidity of things fade just enough for new generations
to perceive from an entirely objective underpinnng. And oh, won't they
be crying in the big bucket then! The party will be over. No more special
treatment. No more teflon morality. No more Zionist faux-suffering. It
will soon be percieved as a grotesque negligence, a fetid spiritual and
intellectual laziness to toss Nazism around, or use the term anti-semite
so loosely. I predict the more they raise a stink, the better things will
- For they are destined to destroy themselves, like a snake
eating its own tail, having exchanged the truth for a lie, and suffering
the due penalty of their malicious error. By their own hands, they will
corrupt and collapse like a pile of old, dried bones and be swept underfoot,
forgotten and godforsaken. That is the destiny of all liars and all deceivers
and all who make false enemies and who manipulate and play power games.
Dust. Ashes. No, not by some maniacal, mad German dictator shoveling them
into ovens, but burnt by the glorious sun of light, logic and love. My
Bible says, in that day, seven people will take hold of a Jew and say,
"Let us go with you, teach us your ways and the way of your God, the
Lord. Let us go up to the house of the Lord." When Zionism is at last
dead, and the idiocy of men is laid aside, the King of Kings will rule
and reign with a rod of iron, over all nations, and righteousness shall
be the cornerstone of His everlasting government.
- From Roger
- These people STEAM me to no end and I commend you from
the deepest sections of my heart for having the guts
to expose them for who and what they are.
- I, and my deceased wife, have had you as our home page
for the last 3 1/2 years after I started finding these
zionist articles on your site. Personally, I can't "get my arms around"
any of the UFO stuff, not that there's not truth there, it's
just not something I want to spend my mental energy
on when there's so much other pressing subject matter that needs to be
dealt with. This Zionist problem has been one of my primary
hot-buttons and areas of study for the last 10 to
12 years and your site adds a great deal of continuing study and
information on what I consider to be the most pressing problem
of our, and recent, times.
- I thank you and applaud you for not only not bending
but stifening, and becoming more resolute in bringing
the truth to those who wish to make the effort to understand it. I think
the ole saying from WWII was, "if you're not catching
flack you're NOT over the target!"
