Hate the State, buy Gold and all will be well: an Alternative Media in Crisis

A little more then ten years after the Truth Movement was born, its key asset, the Alternative Media, is dying. Austrianism, ego and over reliance on too few news aggregators have allowed the Money Power to stall the opposition.

A little more than a year ago Activist Post compiled a widely read Top Ten of the Most Influential People in the Alternative Media. Let’s analyze this list and see what kind of ‘opposition’ can be expected from these people.

10. Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
Activist Post: “Roberts scores huge points in the credibility department having been the former head of policy at the Department of Treasury under Reagan, and the editor of the Wall Street Journal…’
Do these posts really add to his credibility? This is actually quite typical of the Alternative Media. ‘Ex’ CIA officers are also often quoted as ‘reliable’ sources.
Roberts seems a decent man. But he ignores the monetary system. He backs Ron Paul. He in no way challenges the basic tenets of Capitalism.
So he provides no real opposition of any kind to the Money Power.

9. Gary Franchi
A libertarian plugging Gold.

8. Adam Kokesh
A veteran with his own TV show on Russia Today. He is a libertarian with great faith in ‘commodity money’. According to Activist post, he gets his legitimacy from having served in the greatest killing machine ever to scorch this earth.

7. Stefan Molyneux
One word: Hate the State!

6. Max Keiser
Max is more complicated character than most of the other rather primitive ‘Libertarians’ on this list. He calls the bankers by their real names, anything from vampire, to criminals belonging in jail. That certainly is refreshing. He also has an interest in other monetary paradigms and is not so hung up on Gold, even though he plugs it big time.
On the other hand: he actually seems to believe Germany is the good guy in the Euro crisis and he does not seem to fully grasp the simple power grab that is behind the Euro Crisis.

5. David Icke
While having some problems of his own, David Icke’s message to OWS shows he’s the real deal. In the video he promotes 3 basic issues: the end to power centralization in supra national entities, monetary reform aimed at debt free money printing by the State and the Problem-Reaction-Solution. The last is tactical in nature, but the first two points are fully on target.

Why a man of his knowledge has so much difficulty seeing the difference between Christ and Christianity is difficult to understand and his ‘reptilians’ are also hard to swallow. But his analysis of the basic condition of mankind is spot on and has nothing to do with the libertarian nonsense that most on this list plug.

4. Jeff Rense
Rense is in many respects a real populist. But he is compromised. He does not fall for Austrianism, but still plugs Gold big time on his website and only very sparingly allows interest free reformers.
Rense apperantly makes hundreds of thousands per year from advertisements and Gold dealers are among his main clients.

He is hailed as the leading outlet on Fukushima, but his recent spat with Henry Makow gave rise to serious doubts.

We are, according to Jeff Rense, to believe that Fukushima was an accident with nobody to blame but the Nuclear Energy Industry. All alternative views are just psy-ops to take the heat of Nuclear Energy. This leaves the impression of a gatekeeping operation.

(update 2/15/2012: Henry Makow exposes Rense)

3. Lew Rockwell
Rothbard’s buddy and boss of the von Mises institute which, up to 2007, owned millions in US treasuries while receiving massive Government subsidies.

As a real libertarian hating politics and the State, Rockwell is always busy getting his friend Ron Paul elected to use state power to fulfill his dreams.

2. Mike Adams
Few problems here, although he is way too high up the list.
Adams has done useful work in the non-threatening but not unimportant natural health department. He is a stand in for Alex Jones in his show.

1. Alex Jones
Of course, nobody takes Jones very seriously, neither outside the alternative media, where he is considered a ‘conspiracy theorist’, nor in the Alternative Media, where everybody knows he is a bought and payed for gatekeeper, making a fortune with his massive media empire. Jones, like most on this list, is a libertarian and plugs the Gold Standard.

Update 3/6/2012: Alex Jones is over. David Chase Taylor has executed him. All that is left is a smoldering ruins and the question how Alex Jones’s endgame will actually play out.
Interestingly, in his Top Ten of Alex Jones mistakes he doesn’t mention his monetary credentials.

Special mention: Ed Griffin!
Well, readers of this site know all about Ed Griffin. Don’t miss Franz Seiler’s comment at the offered link!

Griffin is a mind controller who rewrote Eustace Mullins’ ‘Secrets of the Federal Reserve’ to erase from the public’s mind the knowledge of Gold as the Banker’s favorite monetary weapon.

He recently, like Alex Jones, started ‘exposing’ chemtrails. Undoubtedly to minimize the egg on their faces for having ignored it since 1998

Another special mention: Mike Rivero
He was not on the list, but should have been and was mentioned by many commentators. There can be little doubt that Mike is a good guy. He is a real populist working with his own research. But he does suffer from a number of annoying blind spots. His ‘hating being right all the time’ explains why: knowing you are wrong most of the time brings more growth.

Mike knows about money, but he still supports Paul. He just doesn’t understand that control of the Money Supply is all important. He misses out on the fact that Paul is an obvious change agent, because he believes Paul’s Gold Standard is just one of the issues, instead of THE issue.

Other big mistakes were his denial of chemtrails and downplaying the Obama birther issue, which he thought was irrelevant.

Conclusion
No less than six of the names on this list are outright libertarians.
Libertarianism is attractive to Americans as it promotes ‘Liberty’ and ‘Freedom’. Lovely labels, well suited for the American market, which is less enthralled by our Master’s usual ‘Equality’ and ‘Brotherhood’.

But just as ‘some are more equal than others’, ‘some will be more free than others’ when the Libertarians get their way.
Their Gold Standard (nowadays packaged as a ‘free market for currencies’) will allow the bankers to do what they love most: deflate the money supply and use the ensuing chaos to construct their New Order. Not to mention the massive wealth transfer to those few holding Gold.

It’s also instructive to see how the Money Power works: it just sells a few ounces to people starting to wake up and off they are. Instead of potential opposition, they are transformed into useful drones clamoring for the ‘reform’ the Money Power wanted anyway.

The three major aggregators, Rense, Jones and Rivero all plug Paul. Opposition to Paul is not allowed on the main aggregators of the ‘Free Media’.

Only David Icke provides insight in the real issue: control of the money supply. All the rest either downplay the issue or plug a Gold Standard.

The real drama is, that many people don’t buy into this. I’ve noticed many times that many people have a far greater appreciation of monetary matters than is to be expected from the dreary level of information they receive from the ‘Alternative Media’.

They are simply not represented by the main aggregators.

It is no use speculating on who is behind all these outlets. Libertarianism and Austrianism as mind control operations provide for people seeing the light to plug the message on their own accord. They are called useful idiots.

But the fact is: the Money Power can rest assured that those searching for real information find no organization on the Internet.

And as is usual, the mind control is even reinforced with the self congratulatory kind of list as discussed here.

    Yes but Larouche speaks lot about Gold as well e.g going back to a Gold a Standard i assume this this is the same thing Libertarians are going on about since their is nothing new under the sun and sure libertarians arent smart enough to have made it up.
    So am i right or do they mean something else.While no economic genius I am cluey enough to know libertarianism is bad news for Australia my home country most yankie ideas usually are because yanks are very selfish, egotistical lot. I hope their ideas never reach Australia although we have hayeks neo liberalism and that is bad enough even the labor party is getting on on the act except they call it economic rationalism i assume this the jesuit are of the same movement that i read about in the Henry Makow article. Yes the welfare state is good thing in Aus for those that need it and fall on hard times due to no fault of their own it deserves to be protected.

    By the way best of luck with the blog I have enjoyed your articles, keep up the Good work

    Hello Anthony

    Your description of Mike Adams is somewhat uncomplete
    “Few problems here, although he is way too high up the list.
    Adams has done useful work in the non-threatening but not unimportant natural health department. He is a stand in for Alex Jones in his show.”

    What do you mean by non-treathening?
    He writes not only about natural health but also about chemtrails (at least since 2008), the loss of freedom….
    He is a big supporter of Ron Paul.
    But 3 years ago, he wrote : ‘You may find this article a bit odd coming from someone who tends to support Libertarian philosophy. I’ve studied Austrian economics and Libertarian free market theory, and I have yet to find any explanation in any of those texts of how the free market is supposed to protect the environment or encourage sustainable living. Libertarian economists, in my opinion, tend to miss this hugely important piece of the puzzle, believing that somehow the free market will protect the environment and conserve resources, too.’

    hmm, isnt Allan Watt the most coherent decoder around? and he isnt even mentioned…

    • Thanks Bob, I was dealing with a list provided by Activist Post, so it is definitely not a comprehensive discussion of the entire ‘Alternative media’.

      But the point is clear: smoke them libertarians/austrians out, they’re easy to spot. Just check for Gold advertisements on their sites.

    • Same here: I was dealing with a list provided by Activist Post, so it is definitely not a comprehensive discussion of the entire ‘Alternative media’.

      I’m not impressed with Wilcock and Fulford. But I may be wrong.

    There is important discourse happening here. The state is like a car. The car itself is not necessarily an evil. But the driver can be. The bankers are in the driver’s seat. Thus, for patriots to be totally anti-state without qualification is a huge mistake. Our guardians have been seduced by high finance to guard the bankers and the corporations that the bankers spawn and sustain. To unseat the bad driver is the singular purpose of the freedom fight, since usury/compound interest are our mortal enemy — the enemy of both the state and the people the state is supposed to protect. And because the bankers know this, they will release the hounds in the form of fake friends and supposed allies, along with heretical ideas such as the Austrian school. The jury is still out, or should be out, on state-owned banks–that idea needs more careful examination. And Steve Zarlenga’s HR 2990 sounds promising, but what’s this about preserving a Federal Reserve remnant, called a Bureau of the Federal Reserve, and placing within the Treasury Department when the bill already endows the Treasury with everything it appears to need WITHOUT the Fed bureau? We have to be VERY CAREFUL here. A social credit system, or call it national credit, is the true antithesis of the bankers’ racket. Yet Zarlenga tends to downplay or disregard Major Clifford Douglas’s social credit conception, and Ellen Brown (state owned bank advocate) gives it a pat on the head but does not say much. And the remarks above that there can be no such thing as debt free money are the remarks of someone doped up by the system to where they cannot think straight.

    • Great stuff Cicero!

      “And the remarks above that there can be no such thing as debt free money are the remarks of someone doped up by the system to where they cannot think straight.”

      There are two schools of thought represented here: the classic American patriots, with their debt free money (of which SC is a much improved version) and interest free credit people.

      The first will know what you mean, but you do not yet know what the latter mean with the statement you took offense to :-)

    • You’re going to take a piece of paper in exchange for something you produce and not expect something in return? You can because there is a debt established that needs to be extinguished. I’ve heard Zarlenga say Still’s approach to monetary reform is not worth analyzing, but what do you know – they both have the same approach worded differently.

    Uh…pardon me, but Jeff Rense doesn’t have a single PAID gold sponsor. He makes no money whatsoever from gold.

    Andy Gauss, USGoldCoins.com comes on once a month because of his respect for Jeff. NO money for Rense there.

    Paul Drockton sells silver but those ads are complementary and NON-Paid because Drockton hosts a program on theRense Radio Network. So much for the accuracy, credibility and integrity of ‘realcurrencies’….damn close to LIBEL.

    As for this – “We are, according to Jeff Rense, to believe that Fukushima was an accident with nobody to blame butthe Nuclear Energy Industry.” No one on the planet has proven otherwise.

    • Thanks for this.

      “No one on the planet has proven otherwise.”

      I’m not too sure. But the point is that Rense is ignoring stories to the contrary. As a result no real discussion is possible. It is also quite opposed to his usual stand of allowing conflicting views.

      “Uh…pardon me, but Jeff Rense doesn’t have a single PAID gold sponsor. He makes no money whatsoever from gold.”
      Can you back this up?

    • http://www.henrymakow.com/thehiddenjeff_rense.html

  12. Thanks for that review. I have discovered Social Credit and DIck Eastman’s work via Jeff Rense. Hats off to Jeff for that help. I want to get the word out about Social Credit to people in Ireland, which is being pillaged right now by the bankers.

    • Hi Cathal, nice seeing you here!
      I had a chance to hear from your work through Dick’s mailings. Great stuff! Being half Irish myself I’m thrilled to hear some people are actually doing something!

  13. If you insist on calling this capitalism and that there is such a thing as debt free money, you are serving the bankers.

    • Oh, I know what you mean philo, at any rate for as far as the debt free money is concerned. Dick Eastman would agree with you too, for other reasons.

      But I have a soft spot for the debt free thing. Most people wanting it are on the right track but are still thinking in 1860 terms when it comes to money.

      Shoot me, ok?

      But I’m not too sure where you stand or where you think I stand on capitalism?

      • I’m saying you’re in a communist country, I’m in a communist country, communism has conquered the planet. Capitalism is a system where the government of the people issues the peoples currency to the people equally. When the people leave the market, including not being a productive member of society, they give back the currency that was issued to them and nothing more. And, the populace is not divided over how progressive taxes should be because everyone pays the same percentage. We could have a capitalist revolution if everyone understood this. There just simply isn’t a piece of paper that’s worth anything other than paper if it doesn’t represent a debt that must be extinguished eventually.

        • Ok, I understand now.

          Personally I call the system we have now capitalism. Why? Because capital dominates labor. A normal free market system (which I believe is what both of us are suggesting) would see Labor as the bottleneck, as there will always be enough money. Capital is never a bottleneck, as the world is awash in it. People are very creative, after all. They produce lots of stuff.

          • The means of production in this communist system is communal, not capital. Communal is the opposite of capital. A tool that you use to produce something that’s embezzled from you is called a communal tool. You can’t let a communist banker agent like Karl Marx define communism. You have to use logic.

        • “There just simply isn’t a piece of paper that’s worth anything other than paper if it doesn’t represent a debt that must be extinguished eventually”

          That’s a cool way of saying it! I’ll use that, at some point.

          • I should point out that a piece of paper can represent title to something. That’s what a stock is. It represents ownership, not debt. In a free market the people who use the means of production physically would end up owning it through free market forces. If you have a choice of whose tools you use, whose are you going to use?

    Hey Anthony, I know it’s off-topic here but I would like to know what you think of Silvio Gesell . Thanks!

    • Hi Henrique,

      I have a very high regard of him. I was intending to write an article on him, but Keith Gardner wrote an excellent overview about the difference between demurrage and inflation, which could be considered similar.

      I reposted on my own site and think I have hereby answered your question!

    Great article, nothing much to add here from my perspective…

    “It’s also instructive to see how the Money Power works: it just sells a few ounces to people starting to wake up and off they are. Instead of potential opposition, they are transformed into useful drones clamoring for the ‘reform’ the Money Power wanted anyway.”

    This is so true. “Drones” is exactly accurate – they don’t even realize what they are doing….

    • This is so true. “Drones” is exactly accurate – they don’t even realize what they are doing….

      To be honest, I was thinking of Abu and Bionic when writing these lines…………

      • Jon H permalink

        Heres one you left of the list Lyndon Larouche, he seems to go through various phases but a few years ago he was pushing for a return to the Gold standard and Bretton Woods Agreement. Yet in other parts of his views larouche comes across as socialist for example in Australia he preaches to his followers to advocate the creation of pples bank owned by federal gov. So I am confused what would you consider Larouche part this movement your views in Larouche would be much appreciated.

        • Jon, don’t fall for the notion that a ‘people’s bank’ is socialism. Our current system is socialism, for the rich.

          The Government has every right and actually duty to print its own money, which would save the taxpayer in the US alone 450 billion per year in interest.

          Larouche promotes a hamiltonian/national banking system. It’s not quite my cup of tea and actually pretty close to what we have now.

          he should take it a few steps further.

          Furthermore: a currency monopoly is probably a bad idea. Government should print its own, to set a basic standard and to guarantee a sufficien amount of money in circulation, but it should allow other players to provide liquidity too.
