Is the Truth Movement Controlled Opposition?

March 1, 2012


Mike Phillips argues that
much of the alternative media 
is  "simulated opposition."

by Mike Phillips

The comment by Jeff Rense's 9th Ex-Wife Megan caught my eye,

"For all you who wonder is Jeff Cointelpro??? No, Jeff Rense is controlled by no one. He is a lone nutter."

It is possible that Rense is BOTH a lone nutter and controlled opposition.

This is not to be confused with Cointelpro, which was an FBI operation to infiltrate domestic political organizations. Rense is clearly not Cointelpro.

My purpose is to examine the media in light of the principles outlined in the Protocols of Zion.

Protocol 12, states:


They conceive of the media in three tiers. The top tier, would be things like NBC news with Brian Williams, magazines like TIME & Newsweek.


In the second tier would be the vast number of magazines, TV and radio shows, internet sites and books which present an enormous range of views. The object here is confusion.


Considering the average American, you'd have to say this part works. Here you have the Shawn Hannities, Rush Limbaughs, Matt Drudges, etc.

The third tier consists of more obscure radio programs and internet sites, is where you find controlled opposition. Here they allow viewpoints counter to their interest. They do this to track dissent. Thus a Ron Paul gets lots of attention from the internet, but not NBC News.

 All three tiers are controlled, but not directly. On the first tier, when a Helen Thomas or a Rick Sanchez crosses the line, they are removed. This sends the message to everyone else who is making a fine living in the first tier media. Promote their interests or be fired.

Likewise, on the third tier, when a William Cooper, Fritz Springmeier or an Edgar Steele crosses the line, he might find himself dead or in jail on trumped up charges. This sends a message to a Jeff Rense who is making 400K per year and living in luxury.  That's how he is controlled, not by anyone directly telling him what to say or do.

Jeff Rense is allowed to go so far and no further. If he were to make a mistake and cross the line (and he might not be exactly sure where that line is) eliminating him would be no loss for those at the top. After all, he is presenting information contrary to their interests. Someone else can easily be allowed to do that.


So, if you realize this, you will understand that all the so called "Truth Movement" is controlled opposition. This means that even Henry Makow is controlled opposition, but in this sense: if he goes beyond whatever line they set, steps will be taken to limit or eliminate his access to the internet. Right now he is being de-linked by a number of the more "mainstream" so called truth sites, in bed with Jeff Rense, such as David

There are two possible reasons for this. One, Fukushima. Virtually none of the so called "truth sites" are addressing this issue. When you understand who is trying to control the world, it's not hard so see why this would be a hot issue.

Two, he attacked Jeff Rense.  Rense is exactly what they are looking for in a fake "truth site." He does present some truth issues, but his site is carefully designed to appeal only to those who already understand these issues, while at the same time driving off anyone with an open mind who might stumble by.

Since his site has everything from flying saucers to screwballs like Paul Drocton, it's the perfect place to present truth in a context where it won't be readily accepted. This is exactly what they want, which is to attract the opposition in order to keep track of it, without promoting it.

Rense will be protected. He's the controlled opposition they want. The few truths he presents don't worry them.

In many ways, he and his loyal confederate Icke are entertainers and fits with their plan to distract the public with talk of ETs, space ships and reptiles:

"In order that the masses themselves may not guess what they are about WE FURTHER DISTRACT THEM WITH AMUSEMENTS, GAMES, PASTIMES, PASSIONS, PEOPLE'S PALACES... SOON WE SHALL BEGIN THROUGH THE PRESS TO PROPOSE COMPETITIONS IN ART, IN SPORT OF ALL KINDS: these interests will finally distract their minds from questions in which we should find ourselves compelled to oppose them. Growing more and more disaccustomed to reflect and form any opinions of their own, people will begin to talk in the same tone as we, because we alone shall be offering them new directions for thought . . . of course through such persons as will not be suspected of solidarity with us." (Protocol 13)  

(Makow Note: I am not controlled at all but I respect Mike's right to say what he pleases. I recognize that denying the holocaust or "blaming the Jews" is the line, but I wouldn't anyway. The Jewish holocaust took place  and it's bad taste to deny it. The two world wars were primarily Christian holocausts. More than 80 million mostly Christians died. I  blame the Illuminati central bankers for the world's woes. They manipulate everyone, including most Jews.

Alex Jones is a modern day phenomenon. He is responsible for educating more of the public nationally and worldwide regarding "false flag terrorism" and many other "tricks of the trade" of the international bankers' intelligence agencies than probably any other individual on earth. For that, we can be most grateful to Mr. Jones, and, his entire team. He is virtually, single-handily, waking-up the world to the dark depths of covert, black, psy-ops and the spiders' web of global monetary enslavement.

However, as incredibly helpful as his information is to the average, formerly comatose, "Joe six-pack", there are crucial connections which he has systematically kept concealed from his audience ever since he began his "infowars" crusade. Those connections to networked power structures and nodes showcase the all-consuming and nearly completely pervasive stranglehold that international banking's Zionism has on the world's governments, cultures and media. This 900 pound gorilla in the living room Alex Jones not only steadfastly ignores, but, its very dominating existence he even denies.

For one who supposedly holds to the maxim "Follow the money", his consistent public posture of intellectual dishonesty is a curious one. It's curious, that is, until one looks below the surface and discovers Mr. Jones' numerous connections to international Zionism and his likely identity as a STRATFOR double agent.

For those of you out there, like myself, who have been banned from posting on Jones' web sites for merely attempting to list just some of the names of the enormous numbers of Zionists occupying our government and mentioning the crippling control which Zionism exercises over the policy-making of our government, and, those of you, again, like myself, who have been abruptly cut-off on his call-in radio show for trying to explain the same, the information disclosed in the articles at the bottom links will shed documented light on the "mystery". Alex Jones is a "firewall" for and a deep-cover agent of international Zionism. The facts are incontrovertible.

Use his cutting-edge Intel and some of his penetrating analysis by all means, of course, but be careful where his monolithic silence on, and, misdirection concerning, the central, ultimate, sources of the economic, governmental and political evil may be designed to lead you. This is no Time for half-truths and incomplete exposures of deception and control. The world needs the whole truth, NOW. The fate of the planet hangs in the balance of knowledge.

While I do not agree with all the statements made in the articles at the following sites, they do contain valuable information pertaining to the person Alex Jones. Do a search for "Alex Jones his connections to Zionism" and be prepared to encounter an interesting and enlightening avalanche of writings!

Thanks for forwarding the below first link, Lynn.

Not only is there a controlled opposition on the part of the media, but it spreads into the Christian world, as well. If they are on Christian TV, they are part of the Christian Industrial Complex. All of them promote their undying support to Israel, they are ecumenical with Catholics, and they promote the pretribulation rapture. These wolves in sheep clothing can often be caught by their use of doctrine and symbolism on their books. They have infiltrated the Church, Christian colleges and seminaries. They may look good on the surface, but they are all fakes.

RT News can be added to the list. They use many of the controlled opposition - especially Ron Paul, a Fabian Sociologist/Rosicrucian.

Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said to them, "See to it that no one misleads you.

Mat 24:5 "For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will mislead many.

Mat 24:6 "You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end.

Mat 24:7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.

Mat 24:8 "But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

Mat 24:9 "Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name.

Mat 24:10 "At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another.

Mat 24:11 "Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many.

Ya think? Mostly it is all show and no go. A person can talk all he wants, but when it comes to attempting the solve a problem,
they either get wacked or put in prison. There's really no need to worry, just get out of the way. The evil ones will destroy themselves. In fact, they are already destroyed, they just don't realize it yet. No one can do all these evil deeds and then expect to get away with it. This is why I continually focus on the commandments because those are the only things that will get good results. There is no such thing as a good political result under these circumstances.

David Icke is a double agent. He took over at a serious child abuse of the state and started talking about beings from another planet. (I am not against the idea of demonic/extra dimensional beings but he made the thing into a joke.)

I was a big fan of Davids I couldnt see how he could be working for the people he was exposing. David in my opinion is a change agent and is bringing in the New World Order.

After watching this video (David Icke Debunked) A lot of the niggling questiona I had about Icke were answered.

I wrote to David as a long time supporter of his work and asked him to address the issues to his fans he has made no reply as I know of. Strange coming from a man who claims everyone elses in action on what he has said about them confirms there guilt.

He has made time on his sight to confront some youtube guy gorrila, Alan watt and maybe some more I dont know about.

He has not mentioned this video and a post I made about this on his forum was taken down by a moderator. Thats why I sent an email.

David is attacking you in my opinion is because he is scared and his game is being exposed. The truth doesnt need protecting so why is so quick to jump in on jeff renses side? The disinfo people are sticking together for survival. Just my view.

(This is an excerpt from an email)

As far as the people [my truth movement insider friend] trusted in radio and internet, there were some she would not give time to, Alex Jones, Jeff Rense, Gary Bell.

As far as your situation with these attacks, I have learned a lesson from posting on forums both "truth" type and general public:

-On the general public forums: if you point out the obvious you are a "Conspiracy Theorist" and dismissed

-On any "Truth" forums: If you point out the obvious and it goes against the grain of the frequenters you are "Controlled Opposition" and dismissed.

-On any forum: If you point out the obvious and it in any way may point to zionism, bankers or the media you are an "Anti-Semitic" and shunned, banned or possibly even charged.

So you see Henry, you are damned if you do, damned if you don't. They have a name for anyone no matter what their ideas maybe. The herd has been well programmed to tune out when the "Conspiracy Theorist", "Controlled Opposition" or "Anti-Semite" label has been applied. In a way, they do truly control the herd by the use of these three simple labels.

All I can say is that if anyone continues to survive in the game, they either have not gotten close enough to the truth yet, or they are doing what is expected of them. If they are trying to attack you, you must have struck a nerve....

There are no allies in this game. Just when you think you are doing ok, someone stabs you in the back. The corruption is unfathomable. This is why my friend got out of it. I always wondered why there was always in-fighting between the truth "leaders". I now know why there will never be an alliance of truthers, because not enough of them are telling the truth."

Mike Phillips uses the phrase cacaphony creating confusion

in his book "Rulers of Evil", Tupper Saussy explains the strategy the Jesuits came up with, to counter the Reformation " setting learning against learning"

my old man was in the Cdn Army, serving in Italy in the Second World War, then as a captain in the Provost Corp, in Korea. I distinctly recall him telling me it was the Russians who'd massacred the Poles in the Katyn forest, decades before that story came out, publicly. He mentioned the Protocols to me when I was a kid. I believe that when he went to the officers' training school in about 1942, he was taught that World War 3 is expected by the Western Powers, as inevitable.

my opinion now, is : the Jesuits concocted the Protocols. The Vatican is the ultimate puppet-master, where the Black Pope runs the show

Fred said (March 2, 2012):

There seems to be a lot of noise or extreme opinions on sites such as Rense and Icke. It borders on absurdity, madness, or at the least ridiculous. So who would take what they had to say or were promoting seriously

The question is “What gives with all the “background noise?”

Phillips makes the argument of controlled opposition. Could it be that to some extent all of us are manipulated/controlled?

The illuminati are slowly taking the gloves off; but those who can see understand what is happening and are not sidetracked by serpents, Gila monsters, or UFOs.

The truth has a ring to it that cannot be duplicated. As I read more and more of your articles something resonated as I read. In contrast the more I read of Paul Drocton the more I became convinced he was a nutjob! By the time Rense kicked you off his site I had found myself just skimming the topics.

Disinformation can be used to dissuade people, but it can never carry the day. Jesus said it best “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”

Lies cannot set one free. Lies can only enslave. As you have noted in previous posts (allow me to take some interpretative liberty) truth is beauty, it is eternal, it brings peace, and cannot be defeated. Truth is love! When you love someone you will be honest with them.

Stay the course. I applaud your work.

Jen said (March 2, 2012):

Hello, I just wanted to thank you. Now the truth about Rense and Icke comes to light. I am sure that that is your goal to bring people the truth. It is obvious now to me that Rense and Icke are just in it for the money and are not looking for the truth or any resolution to the real problems of today. It is unfortunate that these two had to reveal their true colors in such a twisted and crude manner.

I can only say that such insulting behavior is indeed flattering when it comes from such deluded lower life forms-as rense and icke, and the opposite is true as well-anyone who they promote from now on is being insulted-and is probably part of their evil agenda. Now I don't have to waste anymore time on them-I always was suspicious and I just wanted to thank you for bringing my suspicions to an end. I will never think of either of them as credible in any way again. The way they treated you was despicable and had to have been motivated by something very sinister.
