"Despite making in excess
of $450K from his web site, radio show and businesses, twice a
year he duns his readers for "donations." If we are going to expose
others, we had better be prepared to look honestly at ourselves."
-- by Henry Makow Ph.D.
REPLY - Another typical lie...they float past like leaves in the wind.
If Jeff were making that kind of money, would he be working 12-14
hours a day, 365 days a year and be approximately $800,000 in debt?
The photo of this beautiful motorcycle was taken in the back of
the local Harley dealership on the day of delivery. A fun photo
and a great bike. If it weren't for Harley Davidson financing,
such a dream could not have been fulfilled. Only 5 more years
of payments left! I drive a 15 year old Toyota and have the Harley.
I first bought a 7 year old Harley but because of my ruined knee,
I could not hold it up. So, I decided to go for a trike which
Harley wisely designed for disabled riders like me. So, no, little
man, there is no 'collection' of motorcycles. Oh, and our modest
fundraisers are helpful in keeping the site and program healthy. Alas,
the last one was so meager in donations, I haven't held one since. The
economy is so bad that I feel people need to hang on to every available
'dollar'...whatever that is now. We have the best listeners and readers
on the net...and that is a priceless treasure.
"When Jeff Rense said he would no longer link to my web site because
of one article I posted, I didn't phone to reason with him."
REPLY - As explained in our first reply, the decision to offer
to post only his own, personally authored articles - and cease linking
to his often substandard 'contributed' pieces - was a decision that
had been pending for months. He chose to cut off relations by
refusing to send anymore of his own work!
"At the time, I didn't know why. We had spoken on the phone many times.
I just had a feeling which I can now comprehend.
His actions were so irrational and his manner so pompous and omniscient,
I felt a mysterious missing factor was at play."
REPLY - If it is 'irrational' and 'pompous' and 'omniscient' to refuse
to promulgate idiocy about nuclear bombs being used to set off the Fukushima
quake and tsunami, I'm proud of it. Funny, I always termed such
decisions to be 'editorial judgement' regarding my own site. I
consider such material to be 5 star disinformation and essentially covering
for the satanic nuclear power industry and I will not be pressured,
threatened or forced into any other decision. By anyone.
"'You have insulted me,' he wrote when I merely questioned his haughty dismissal
of a story I posted on my website."
REPLY - Gosh, it WAS an insult!
"I sensed that something was not normal. He had dealt a body-blow to
me and everything we had built over 10 years, and I doubt if he gave
it a second thought."
REPLY - Uh...'we' hadn't built anything over ten years. In fact,
I had helped build his site into a small position of readership on the
net by linking to his stories. The owner of a hugely successful
blog warned me that I was being hustled and used to build his site's
traffic, and that the very same thing had happened over on that blog.
I have no time to write articles now...wish I did...and am not
aware of a single story that has been linked TO rense.com from
his site. So, no, there is no 'we' and the absolute beneficiary
of the 'relationship' was the little man, himself, not rense.com
"While the future of humanity hangs by a thread, he terminated a valuable
collaboration and friendship due to a minor, passing difference of opinion."
REPLY - One more time...We had been receiving a steady stream of 'contributed'
stories written by people unknown to me and I linked to them as a FAVOR.
I was not impressed with many of them, cringed at some, and had
wanted to terminate the practice for many months but never got around
to it until the 'last straw' recently. And heaven help us if a
link to one of his 'contributed' stories didn't show up on rense.com
quickly...we would hear about it fast!
"Instinctively, I didn't want to reconcile. I didn't want to continue
posting my work on his site. (My many able contributors were banned.)
I had done that for seven years. It would be like moving back in with
mom and dad at age 62."
REPLY - Whatever.
THE HIDDEN JEFF RENSE
"I have since learned that Jeff Rense is not what he seems. Behind the
dulcet tones and angst about the world, he is a smooth talking salesman
using our fading freedom as a means to get rich and amass a collection
of luxury items he can hardly afford."
REPLY - More libel. If he defines $800,000 debts as 'rich'...he'd
best seek counseling. Now he is claiming I can 'hardly afford'
things...hmm...I am confused...I thought I was 'making $450,000 a
year'? Also, it seems that he has never heard of the IRS...and
of operating expenses and staff payroll and equipment and bandwidth
and production and engineering and 30 other expenses of running a competent
"Despite making in excess of $450K from his web site, radio show and
businesses, he duns his readers for "donations" twice a year."
REPLY - There he goes again. IRS and enormous business operating
costs, and by the time the net is pulled in, there aren't many fishes
left! 'Duns'? Sounds downright nasty. I guess voluntary,
gracious support of rense.com and Rense Radio is not acceptable
in his little world of hate.
"These "donation drives" bring in an estimated $20K annually."
REPLY - They do? Wow. If we pull in $5,000, we count ourselves
blessed and are extremely grateful. How does this 'journalist'
come up with such sci-fi? As said, I have no plans to even do
any more because of my belief people must take care of themselves first
in these terrible times. No 'money bombs' here, thank you.
"How is Jeff Rense any different from a Christian evangelist who scams
REPLY - Truly vile, depraved stuff, little man. Mental porn. You
are insulting a huge number of our readers by referring to them as a
flock. Our support base is the antithesis of 'flock'...they THINK
for themselves, they DISCERN, they are caring, kind individuals. To
demean them is par for your course. Disgusting.
"I remember donating myself. At the time, I didn't know he lives in
a luxurious cedar mansion on a ten-acre estate near Ashland OR worth
in excess of $1.5 million."
REPLY - See my first Reply to this maggot to understand my modest home
for what it is and how hard I have worked for it. Gosh, I just
now looked at my new 2012 Property Assessment and it says my home and
land are worth barely over $516,000...after 12 years of misery and constant
work (not to mention 25 years working in a demanding and grueling profession).
Since I owe far more than that, I guess I have an upside down,
underwater mortgage! I also, personally, built the first floor
of my home and I am proud of that. I guess the little guy doesn't
respect that kind of back-breaking work...on only one fully-functional
leg, too. I was scheduled for a knee replacement over 20 years
ago. However, after four extensive surgeries on it, I have had
enough cutting, thank you. I would like to know where this rocks for
brains zionist gets his lies and fraudulent information.
He's one heck of a 'creative' writer. It's called LIBEL.
"I didn't know about the $30,000 Harley Trike shown above, and his other
REPLY - As detailed above, I have one Harley (a Trike), heavily-financed
with almost 6 years of payments left, and one much older one I have
been trying to sell because I could never physically ride it due to
"I didn't know he was spending in excess of $100,000 to build a
model railroad that traverses his whole property."
REPLY - Who are your sources, little man? Step up to the
plate. I can't wait. SOURCES! JOURNALISM! I
have loved trains all my life and one day, some day, if I am really
lucky, I might be able to realize such a dream at home. There's
a little Walt Disney in me, I admit. Right now, I have a granite
pathway laid out around the property that someday I hope to be able
to put little train tracks on. Right now, it's plenty nice just
to limp my way around on. Furthermore, what I do with my life
and what money I do earn after 25 years of intense work, is absolutely
no one's business. One of the hallmark signs of a zionist hit
piece is to attempt to violate and desecrate someone's privacy. Some
people pack their noses with coke...I happen to love to plant trees
and build ponds. Some people like to LIBEL and SLANDER...and others,
fortunately, still seek to work together, realizing that being in different
seats on the same TRAIN is just fine.
"I didn't know he spent $30,000 on a tanning bed."
REPLY - Wrong again. I built and owned a tanning salon for five
years. You missed that. I know many people in the industry.
I had a discounted tanning bed at home on a trial but it went
back to the company. No tanning bed here.
"I didn't know he was restoring a vintage station wagon, a "Woodie"
at a cost of $100,000."
REPLY - SOURCES, little man? I was really lucky to have found
a rusted shell of an old Ford woodie in a field three years ago and
have slowly, painstakingly, been bringing it back from the dead. This
is one of the greatest joys I have been blessed with...to save and revive
a piece of American automotive history. BTW, anyone who would
pay "$100,000" to restore a woodie ought to have the keys
taken away. We expect the final costs to come in at half that,
over a period a years. It's a once in a lifetime
special reward for working so hard...I used to have one when I surfed
in Santa Barbara. I can't wait to finish this one.
"I didn't know he was spending tens of thousands excavating ponds and
planting trees on his estate."
REPLY - SOURCES, little man? I confess I have a great and abiding
love of nature and rather than buy beer and pizza and drugs, I would
buy a small tree instead. Planting trees, to me, is giving back
a little something to this defiled and battered planet we are allowed
to live on. I only wish more people would plants trees. I
also have springs on the property and have rented a backhoe and excavated
my own ponds. I have spent over ten years, sweating in the summers,
freezing in the winters, covered in mud and dirt at times...planning,
visualizing, dreaming, hoping, digging, shaping, lifting and moving
countless tons of rocks, shoveling hundreds of cubic yards of earth,
and doing more physical labor on only one good leg, little man, than
you can possibly ever imagine. Is that a felony in Canada, little
man? It seems to really bother you. So, keep right on sitting
there and continue typing out your lies, hate and vitriol, and spewing
your filth...what a wonderful life you have. And know this, if
I receive any threats because of your incitement of hate, they WILL
be turned over to every available agency.
"I didn't know he spent a fortune on multiple face lifts."
REPLY - SOURCES, little man? Wrong again. In 1993,
I suffered massive and complete paralysis of the left side of my face.
It was a horrible event. A virus had attack the cranial
nerve that controls that half of my face; it's called Bell's Palsy.
Can you imagine, little man, what it is like to look in the mirror
one morning and discover that half of your face is lifeless..and does
not move when you command it to? To see your eye staring off into
the cosmos with no expression whatever? To only be able to SPEAK
OUT OF ONE HALF OF YOUR MOUTH?
Well, little man, it took nearly 6 hours of major reconstructive surgery
by a specialist in facial paralysis to partially restore the functionality
of the left side of my face. The superb surgeon, India-educated,
told me the procedure would only last 5 to 8 years...depending
on general circumstances. I hoped otherwise. Unfortunately,
he was right, and I have had to have the same major RECONSTRUCTION done
twice more. No eye work, no nose jobs. Get it, little man?
And you mock me by calling my painful, dreadful ordeal as spending
"a fortune on multiple face lifts." I am a gentleman and so will
not invoke the words you deserve for your heinous efforts to twist reality
to suit your evil ends.
"Jeff often complained that he had money problems. He wanted to sell
his web site to "pay off his debts."
REPLY - I hope to cut down from 12-14 hours a day, 365 days a year,
and just do my radio program someday. Rense.com is a testimony
to truth and reality...the best I can present. Above all, it reflects
the greatness of its readers and supporters. Perhaps there is
someone out there who would like to take the site to even greater heights
of success and respect. It would be fun to lead a more normal
"To explain why he was hard up after making $300K from advertising alone,
he told me he spent $500K to redo the foundations of his house. When
he sued the previous owner, his Jewish lawyer betrayed him."
REPLY - The little man has lost it, completely. My home situation
has been explained and there is nothing to add. I have never,
ever had a 'Jewish lawyer' ... maybe that's why I am in so much debt.
"Sure. The sad truth is that Jeff Rense is a child who can't manage
his money and lives beyond his means."
REPLY - The only sad truth is that a 'man' like this little fellow
will go to such lengths to try to harm, with premeditation and full
deliberation, a dedicated professional journalist who seeks only to
help his listeners and his readers become as TRULY well-informed
as possible...against a backdrop of treachery, lies, libel, slander
and pure deceit. Beware of ANYONE presenting information
without routinely citing sources and vetting information. Character
assassination ... and assassination in general ... is the work of ultimate
"I don't care how Jeff spends what he has earned."
REPLY - Nice try, no cigar. What unabashed, phony hypocrisy.
"Just don't ask me for a donation.
Think of all his loyal readers who sent him their hard-earned $20 bills
so the "truth" could be told."
REPLY - Our readers and listeners have more worth, more SOUL, more integrity
than this little man will ever understand or possess. He has shown
the world not only who he is and the depths to which he will dive
in order to defame, he has also shown why free men and women face such
an unrelenting enemy, an enemy responsible for the deaths of over 100
million people in the last century and who are lusting for even more
suffering and misery in this new one.
"I want my money back. As for my trust, I will never regain
REPLY - What a strange and bizarre little mind, the little man
has. He actually writes that he will never regain his own trust!
Another freudian slip revealing how his own subconscious feels
about his vile, filthy and morbid performance...
From Cliff Mickelson
By now I am sure that most of us are aware of the latest series of personal
attacks being made against Jeff Rense by a certain disgruntled Internet
writer and blogger. These attacks are without intellectual merit and
are ad-homenem and despicable.
As Morgellons sufferers we all owe a debt of gratitude to Rense.com
and Mr. Rense for the outstanding work he has done over the years to
defend and further the cause of Morgellons.
With out the exposure that Jeff has given the Morgellons issue we would
all be much worse off.
Below is a short note I have penned to that effect:
I have known Jeff Rense on a first name basis for more than 6 years.
During that period of time I have come to know him as a sincere and
honest man. I am proud to call him my friend. I will not hesitate to
be his friend or to defend him publicly in the face of unfair and unscrupulous
attacks. That is what "friends" do.
I have had the opportunity to visit Jeff at his modest home in the Pacific
Northwest. I can assure the reader that everything Jeff owns or has
built on his delightful property has come into existence as the result
of long hours of hard work.
But more importantly.... Over the years, Jeff Rense has been willing
to step into the Internet breach for a long list of underdog and high
risk causes. In so doing he has often put his personal reputation as
well as his life's work at risk. Nonetheless he has done so willingly
and without question. Jeff Rense has high standards, a good heart, and
an unerring sense of what is right and what is wrong.
As they say here in Mexico...Jeff Rense is made of "Buena Madera"!
There is no question in my mind that the Internet community is a better
place for having Jeff Rense and Rense.com on the battlements patrolling
the front lines of the struggle we wage together for truth and justice.
It is difficult to conceive just exactly where in the darkness the counter-community
would be currently wandering were it not for the light-of-day that Jeff's
work and Rense.com have cast over our collective paths.
Few of us would disagree that it remains quite possible that even darker
days loom ahead. Jeff and others like him who have chosen to take a
high profile public stand are risking it all in the face of a ferocious
foe. Jeff Rense deserves the support and the approbation of the entire
As for Henry Makow....Perhaps he needs to review the definition of "Scruples"...I
find it ironic that he invented a game and then chose to name it as
Jeff, I truly find all of this an embarrassing display of rogue journalism,
albeit - a strange one; Henry's cheese must have fallen off his
cracker, or the latter, fallen into the bottle. Count Drunkula's
nuts to even conceive the mere possibility that he could accomplish
and or achieve anything positive out of a smear campaign over a declined
news story. Any seasoned reader/listener can see this for what it really
is - you've maintained your dignity dude, even though he's been on a
daily email tirade - he's like the turd that wont flush.....comic Eddie
Murphy said it best "what does that chunk want?" We did a
podcast on this subject - the listener consensus backed you. For
your readers, heres the link
