Open Letter To US Department of State
Free Press International
I notice on your web site, you are listing and as spreading unreliable information. These two web sites are telling 75% more truth than mainstream media.
You've also listed as an extremist group. Isn't the IAC run by former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark? Why didn't you post that Ramsey Clark is involved with IAC?

Gee, Jeff...
Look at all the fine people supporting you. Even some whose opinions I completely abhor. But that makes it all the more important for the Rense.Com site. To be in a position to support a man who can afford to publish both sides of the story.
You know my politics quite well. I am also aware that recently, I've changed my opinion on certain matters which PTR (Prior To Rense), I accepted at face value. You've been instrumental in that change.
No. I'm still Conservative. I can't change that much. Just thinking of say, Hillary Rotten as president or even Senator makes me want to holler out yesterday's soup. And thinking of Liberal views (in general) always creates within me feelings similar to that experienced during a twenty-four hour stomach virus. An exaggeration to make a point, is all.
Anyway, that this writer can support Jeff Rense in light of so much on your site to which I disagree, is a testimony to you, the man.
You've always done right by anyone with whom you've interacted. It's those with whom you've interacted who fail you, not the other way around.
My most sincere congratulations on making the big time.

Congratulations on your recognition by the US State Dept. It is a high honor.
I am glad to be an agent of 'disinformation!'

Let's use the State Department's own criteria and compare it with a real-life, bonafide, proven Conspiracy perpetrated by no less than the Commander In Chief/President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon:
(From )
How to Identify Misinformation
How can a journalist or a news consumer tell if a story is true or false? There are no exact rules, but the following clues can help indicate if a story or allegation is true.
* Does the story fit the pattern of a conspiracy theory?
What Woodward and Bernstein published certainly did! To most ears at that time, it sounded preposterous.
* Does the story fit the pattern of an "urban legend?"
Most Americans regarded their assertions of such high crimes and misdemeanors as nothing more than a politically biased fairy tale... in the beginning.
* Does the story contain a shocking revelation about a highly controversial issue?
YES, the Watergate conspiracy contained one shocking revelation about a highly controversial issue after another -- even the very dignity and veracity of the highest office in the land!
* Is the source trustworthy?
Was Deep Throat regarded by critics of the W&B story as 'trustworthy'? Hardly.
* What does further research tell you?
Further research at the time hit carefully devised brick walls, until enough bricks came tumbling down and confessions ensued, thanks to Dean -- and lid was blown off.
This 'Conspiracy' HAPPENED. It was REAL. It was no 'urban legend.' Richard Nixon and his immediate staff were involved in the cover-up of a self-devised plot of a criminal nature against the opposing political party making use of the powers of the office of the Presidency to skirt the law and cover their tracks. They were caught. HOW? By the diligence of two news reporters willing to take the heat, mockery and insults until the truth was borne out, and the brave backing of their publishers.

I'm sure the "State Department" was none too happy with W&B/Washington Post then either!

When nay-sayers toss up the "C" word as if to nullify an issue, just remind them of Watergate, or of the fact that between 1932 and 1972, a federal government study based in Tuskegee, Ala., charted the effects of untreated syphilis by withholding treatment from 399 African-American men who were unaware they were infected with the disease. An Associated Press reporter exposed the unethical experiment in 1972 and last year President Bill Clinton offered a belated formal apology to the families who suffered. Remind them of Iran-Contra. Remind them of the 1935 The Pellagra Incident. After millions of individuals die from Pellagra over a span of two decades, the U.S. Public Health Service finally acts to stem the disease. The director of the agency admits it had known for at least 20 years that Pellagra is caused by a niacin deficiency but failed to act since most of the deaths occurred within poverty-stricken black populations. Remind them of Project Paperclip, 1945. The U.S. State Department, Army intelligence, and the CIA recruit Nazi scientists and offer them immunity and secret identities in exchange for work on top secret government projects in the United States.

Remind them.

Dear Mr. Rense,
I could not understand why USINFO would be so stupid, to 'shoot themselves in the leg' by publicizing your website which is now recognized worldwide, as the worlds #1 news website.
The wide variety of special journalists, ex-military, ex-intelligence, Israelis, Arabs, Jews, who post on your website is making you the most unique and most reliable website on the planet. Period.
So, I decided to google on USINFO, since I never heard about them before:
To my surprise, I found out that USINFO is actually USDISINFO, running out of two websites in Sweden and Switzerland, out of all places! (Sweden) (Switzerland) (over 90% of the google results came from just these two websites !!!)
Your readers can get these results by googeling USINFO @ News @ sort by date
Keep up your good work,
Binyamin Levy

Hi Jeff, congratulations!
I laughed when I read the Misinformation guidelines on the State Dept website. Too bad those guidelines arn't applying to our lying Commander In a Golf Cart. IMO, he's the worst pResident of my generation. Bush and his cronies have looted the nation and they smile at us as they continue leading us into permanent servitude.
I've only been following your site for 3 years, but you have proven to be a better journalist than any mainstream media (MSM) and many of us have learned a great deal from your site and radio show.
I really liked the suggestion of a lawsuit. You would nail them if you took them to court and went before a jury. Your archives could put the lying greedy criminals away if we actually had an honest justice system.
Keep up the good work, the criminals are getting nervous!!
Peace, Mark

The TRUTH hurts and they have admitted it with their attack against you.

The State Department which has declared the top 'disinfo' site, is also linking to an article from ** to *bolster their claim* that there was airplane wreckage at the Petnagon!
In other words, they're also using as a REFERENCE!
and you can find the link in the section of the article: "*Plane Debris Found at Pentagon Crash Site"*
The article link they use as a reference is:
Best Regards,

Jeff -
I think it is great that the State Dept. is spending so much money to tell us what is real on the net and what is not. Aren't you thrilled to be in the spotlight? Guess we long-time supporters better wise up now, don't cha think?
...and yes of course we can beleive what the gum'mint tells us, right? ; )
Well, Congratulations on getting them exposed to the sunlight...

Jeff --
We are, it seems, betrayed by the country we serve...
I can only quote E.M. Forster, who wrote on the eve of the second World War:
"Personal relations are despised today. They are regarded as bourgeois luxuries, as products of a time of fair weather which is now passed, and we are urged to get rid of them and dedicate ourselves to some movement or cause instead. I hate the idea of causes, and if I had to choose between betraying my country and betraying my friend, I hope I should have the guts to betray my country..."
This "boy scout" and "war hero" stands with you, Jeff, for what that's worth, and finds it ironic that it is you singled out as an enemy of the state given the egregious behaviors of the Bush Crime Family, its culture of extreme ineptitude, and the distortions of its religious "right."
I stand with you, Jeff. True patriotism is defending your country all the time and your government only when it deserves it. It is you performing the service, Sir, not your dodgy detractors and scurrilous critics. You are not alone.

Congratulations, Jeff!
I know you have worked long and hard to make it to the top of the state dept's list. But as the expression goes - "It's a dirty job, but somebody's gotta do it"
From Stephen M. St. John
Dear Jeff,
The State Department should stick to foreign affairs. If they really found you, your website and talk show so objectionable, they would have done much better by simply ignoring you. They are inept in handling adverse criticism. They don't go into any specifics about you and the issues you raise lest there be a ruckus.
Have you thought of suing them? You would need to show a jury evidence proving what you posted about, say, missing videotapes at the Pentagon, Logan, Newark and Dulles airports on 9/11, is NOT disinformation and is an issue very much in the public's interest in determining why our nation went to war and why it lacked certain information at the time it was making a decision to go to war.
You could subpoena witnesses and records about these items. That's just for starters.
Since these people at State are not specific and paint you with a broad brush as some kind of disinformation agent, you could help them define the issues at controversy. Of course, you have to show you have been harmed. Many people will just accept the word of the State Department because it is a prestigious institution and as a result be disinclined to go to your website or enterain the issues that are raised there. That is undue influence tarnishing your credibility and therefore your effectiveness in doing what you do. Let the law make these people make their case about you or suffer the consequences.
