Jeff RenseIn his first 2014 broadcast on January 2, 2014, Jeff Rense is already fear mongering with these two claims at the start of his show:

There is a lot of talk — rumbles from sources I have, that are very trusted — who are suggesting that there may be another 9/11-type false flag in this country, this year, but much worse than 9/11. In other words, a much larger loss of life; perhaps a suitcase, or an alleged suitcase nuke, in a small, expendable, medium-sized city that will scare America absolutely irrevocably and firmly and finally into the arms of the Satanic evil that is running this planet.

and

They may be willing to pull the ET trump card out finally and play it. This of course was predicted by Wernher von Braun.

There you have it, folks — as long as he says he has it on the authority of “trusted sources”, it’s worth mentioning on his show, and you should take it as a distinct possibility. Given these extraordinary claims, where is the corresponding extraordinary evidence?

Not that they won’t eventually set off a dirty bomb or nuke somewhere, but why can’t we hear from these sources? Hype, fear and unnamed sources is what we’re accustomed to hearing from the mass media, so how is Rense offering an alternative?

Regrettably, this is all too common in today’s “alternative” media.

On April 3, 2011, I wrote the article, Who is behind enenews.com?, in which I wrote:

Who is behind enenews.com, the site known as Energy News, which, for the time being, has been focusing solely on the fallout of the Japanese nuclear disaster?

The short answer is, we don’t know.

It later came out that it is run by an anonymous, self-described lawyer with a penchant for posting hyped and fear-based articles about nuclear power.

As I commented on June 22, 2011:

Enenews.com keeps putting out the scary headlines, but what they’re not going to do is get into the unnecessary reasons for the disaster in the first place.

If nuclear power wasn’t so heavily subsidized, if the government got out of building nuclear plants and if the private sector could get insurance to build them and the consent of neighbouring property owners who would be most affected, then go ahead with building more nuclear plants.

But no, it’s about putting out the fear.

Sadly, as of August 15, 2012, according to Alexa.com, the site is more popular than ever, and predictably, its author still isn’t advocating any solutions.

My proposal for immediate redress of the current situation concerning nuclear power — which the most rabid anti-nuclear activists and the most laissez-faire free market advocates should find common ground in supporting — is this:

  • Eliminate all government funding for nuclear power research
  • Eliminate all government funding for the operation and insurance of nuclear plants
  • Sell all government-owned nuclear plants to the private sector, or close those that aren’t sold
  • Require the consent of local property owners for the continued or new operation of nearby nuclear power plants

It may be that the implementation of these proposals eventually results in the end of nuclear power as we know it, and I think that could prove to be the case, but the longer time goes without any well-known, so-called “green” organizations advocating such proposals, the more I question their commitment to their espoused principles.

Alex JonesFrom my June 30, 2012 article, Live Free or Die Radio with Lee Rogers is the most dangerous talk show in the alternative media, I pointed out that Alex Thomas of the Intel Hub was scheduled to be a guest on Lee Rogers’ show, only for him to cancel at the last minute.

I speculated that he likely cancelled due to finding out that Rogers was a strong critic of Alex Jones, and that going on the show would risk putting himself on Jones’ blacklist.

On the July 13, 2012 episode of Live Free or Die Radio, Lee Rogers revealed (at 1:56:45) that his subsequent attempts to even elicit a response from Alex Thomas had failed, and I am now 100% confident that my guess was correct, that he cancelled due to fearing Alex Jones’ blacklist.

Whether those who avoid his blacklist because they fear losing listeners, readers, contacts and money, their primary reasons are best known to those individuals themselves.

When I was co-hosting Right to Redress with Steve Allen and Jason Erb on Restore the Republic Radio in 2009, several of us wanted to start a show called Alex Jones Revisited, in response to questions we and others had about Alex Jones based on his own call for his listeners to research for themselves about the claims he makes.

In response, and without any notification to me, owner of Restore the Republic, Gary Franchi, held a conference call and acted like a spoiled baby and informed the owner of the network that despite Restore the Republic Radio having no official connection with Restore the Republic, he planned on cutting all ties and said we had to choose a different name for the network if we went through with our plan for the new show. To the credit of the network’s owner, and as an example for all network owners, he didn’t back down.

It’s revealing that on the May 31, 2012 episode of Live Free or Die Radio, Lee Rogers mentioned that he  had raised questions several years ago about Alex Jones to Gary Franchi, only to notice that a few months later, Franchi was a guest on Jones’ program.

Apparently Franchi didn’t have the same concerns, but his behaviour which I had personally witnessed, showed me that not only did he lack discernment, but that it wasn’t really all about the truth and saving the country like he and so many other so-called patriots claim to be in the movement for.

For the benefit of everyone, I am reposting the description that appeared on the Daily Paul on April 29, 2009, to determine for yourself if the show warranted Franchi’s actions.

Are you tired of Alex Jones and this giver of no hope attitude?

Do you believe much of the information he reports on he is wrong or misinformed about?

Do you want actual solutions of what we can do as average american citizens to these problems he claims we face?

We are introducing Alex Jones Revisited a new radio show that will bring fact NOT fiction back to reality as well as provide real solutions of what you can do to take action and protect yourself.

We will fact check the reports from Alex Jones and give you the truth on what he is wrong about and also what he is right about!
