Joe Rogan is Russian disinformation

I wrote this piece several weeks ago, before the war in the Ukraine. It is satire. SATIRE. FICTION. In the current psychotic atmosphere, I’m tipping my hand. So there can be no mistake in the minds of illiterate persons and unhinged loons.

Also, when I read over this article, I pulled up short at several paragraphs that were so damn good I almost believed them myself.

And thirdly, as we swim in an ocean of propaganda these days, it’s instructive to know you’re reading fiction in real time, because you become aware of how nuts and bolts can be arranged to resemble truth. You put THIS here and then you put THAT next to it…

Which is what major media do every day, all day long, just like the CIA and the FDA and the CDC and WHO.

And with that, here we go:

I can reveal that the NY Times has been sitting on this information for two months.

They’re trying to clean up a few details. But meanwhile, my sources have a back-story that’s truly explosive.

You see, in 2020, Joe Rogan traveled to Russia to meet with Vladimir Putin. Joe was on assignment for Dana White. The mission? Convince Putin, with his background in martial arts, to agree to a UFC exhibition match with action star, Jason Statham.

However—and here the details are admittedly murky—Putin apparently managed to enlist Rogan in a scheme to SUBVERT the US COVID program for defeating the virus. Hence, Rogan’s infamous interview with Dr. Robert Malone, who expressed “deep skepticism” about the vaccine.

Former KGB Officer Anatoly Popov, who defected to the West in 1997, and has been living in Maryland since his extensive CIA debriefing, told me Rogan’s major target has, in fact, been the vaccine.

“This is the number-one aim of the Russians,” Popov explained. “Discredit the injection. Make it seem as if this innovation [the Pfizer/Moderna RNA shot] is dangerous. People refuse the jab, the virus continues to spread, and the US collapses under the weight of so many deaths and so much sickness.”

But this was apparently just one of the aspects of Rogan’s disinformation campaign. As Popov and other trusted sources have told me, Rogan is connected to Robert Kennedy, an aggressive anti-vaxxer, through Rogan’s former mistress, Kristina Vera, Kennedy’s second cousin.

Vera is a microbiologist who once headed up a research lab in Belgorod, Russia. She has been struggling to bring a lawsuit against Anthony Fauci. The issue involves ownership of a patent for an at-home test for the coronavirus.

Vera has been feeding Rogan and Kennedy “a sea of lies” about Fauci, according to Popov, in order to bring about the downfall of Fauci, who stands between the virus and the public as the only source of trusted information.

“Fauci is a guardian of America’s future,” Popov told me. “Rogan’s long-form Spotify interview with Dr. Robert Malone was specifically designed by Rogan to smear, by implication, Fauci’s work informing the public about what must be done to stop the virus.”

In another part of my interview with Popov, the old Russian spy put it this way: “Trump, as president, executed a master-stroke when he turned his Presidency over to Fauci—the only medical figure who could rally the nation by locking it down and cutting off the virus at the knees.”

I managed to talk briefly with microbiologist Kristina Vera. She said, shockingly, “Perform an acid test. Have a conversation with Joe [Rogan]. Suddenly ask him a question in Russian. Before he knows what he’s doing, he’ll answer—in Russian. He speaks the language.”

That opens up a whole new can of worms.

Where was Rogan educated? Is his bio fiction? Is this quintessential American tough guy actually a deep agent?

Former CIA officer Mel Ardis, who worked under diplomatic cover in Moscow for nine years, told me, “Almost a decade ago, I had several meetings with a man who looked a lot like Rogan. He was a Russian trucker. He drove sensitive military equipment between bases. One night, we were having a few drinks at a bar, and he said, “Do you realize how easy it would be for truckers to shut down a whole country? If you could rally them behind an issue, something that threatens their livelihood, you’d have a major force.”

As I was preparing this piece for publication, a press person at a Washington PR agency that works on contract for the White House called me. He said, “Don’t worry about making your Rogan article bulletproof. Just throw enough stuff at the wall. Something’ll stick.”

“No,” I said. “This is all factual. I make clear what I know, and I indicate what’s still open-ended and subject to further investigation.”

“Whatever,” he said. “But don’t be timid. We’re talking about the immediate future of the country. If we can’t stop misinformation about COVID from spreading, we’re in dire straits. We need to sink Joe Rogan. I might be able to set you up for a brief meet with Jen [Psaki]. She’s got Spotify in her cross-hairs. If we can’t crush Joe, we’ll hit the whole Spotify platform. This is all hands on deck.”

I asked this press person, “What about the million vaccine injuries that have been reported to the federal database?”

“The Russians hacked the system and entered fake numbers,” he said. “There’s a very deep agent, a Ukraine national. He infiltrated the Russian State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology [VECTOR] in Koltsovo. He’s now back home in the Ukraine carrying around evidence proving Russian scientists at VECTOR ghost-wrote fake reports alleging the successful US program to curb the virus has been a failure. This is why the Russians are threatening to invade Ukraine. They’re after this agent. They’ve told the President of the Ukraine that if he releases the agent to them, with his evidence, they’ll withdraw their troops from the border.”

I said, “Does Joe Rogan know all this?”

“Of course he knows. He’s in on it. He’s a player. Do you see? A guy who seems to embody rough and ready kick-ass American spirit is, in truth, carrying water for Putin.”

“Hard to believe.”

“Well, that’s the whole point. No one in the spy game looks like who he is.”

After the call, I pulled up a photo of Rogan. I looked at it for a long time. Actually, the man sort of does look Russian. I pictured him wearing a Russian military uniform. My God, I thought. Is his whole persona a con?

Suppose America IS awash in Russian propaganda about COVID. Suppose Fauci has been giving us reliable recommendations all along. And the Russian attacks on his character are meant to torpedo his program that can lead us out of the pandemic wilderness.

Do we need censorship of disinformation across the board? An aide to California Governor Gavin Newsom told me the other day, “We have to declare what amounts to Information Martial Law. No more excuses. Expose one of these well-known disinfo agents and throw him in a prison hole and walk away. Jolt the public with something like that and watch how fast everybody knuckles under. No lawyers, no arguing First Amendment, no citing case precedents. That nonsense is over. Who’s that Brazilian reporter who keeps writing about censorship? Glenn Greenwald? Cancel him. He’s pals with Ed Snowden, who lives in Russia. What else do you need to know?”

We have to—

XXXX Censored. XXXX Censored. XXXX Censored. Hey, what the hell just happened? I can’t get—XXXX Censored. Wait. Guys, I’m on YOUR side. What are you doing? I’m making YOUR case. Stop. I’m—XXXX Censored.


—Oops. Sorry. An overreaction on my part. That brief interruption was apparently caused by Russians. They were repelled.

Maybe it’s time to censor every scrap of disinformation we can find. Strip the license from every doctor who disagrees with COVID science, bankrupt every so-called 1st Amendment platform, hound and drive from office every politician who opposes vaccine mandates, mow down every protest, isolate and starve every outlier—because we’re part of the greater global community. When a crisis arrives, we put aside our differences. This is our calling now. The Russians wouldn’t understand that. They come from a different tradition. They stand for enslavement and top-down control.

Okay Joe, enough. The verdict is in. Your podcast needs to crumble, turn to dust, and blow away in the wind.

As they say where you come from: “V chuZHOY manasTYR’ sa svaYIM usTAvam ni HOdyat.”

You know what that means. “Don’t go to somebody else’s country with your old country’s rules.” You’re in our country now.

Home of the free.

Nobody fucking fools us.

    I’ve been married to a Russian born, Ukrainian woman for the last 9 years of my life. As a consequence of that, I’ve met many Russian and Ukrainian people.

    Just like you and me, they are normal people who want to enjoy a peaceful life. Many of them know that what is happening now is just a stage show for larger, corrupt political and corporate ambitions.

    I choose to celebrate love instead of being engaged in yet another mind-fuck by the political and media manipulators…Enjoy!

    If this was published in the London Guardian up to and
    excluding the paragraph about censorship, it would be
    believed by most readers.

    “nobody fucking fools us”

    pure gold.

  4. yerba buena says:

    Thank you, Jon, for shining a light upon the truth…
    I just found an article, “structural analysis of sequence data in virology
    an elementary approach using sars-cov-2 as an example” on
    which demolishes the pathogenic contagious virus hypothesis pretty
    conclusively. There are two pdfs, one with text, the other with graphs. written by
    “a mathematician from Hamburg, who would like to remain unknown.” The
    language is in virotechese and requires close reading to grok fully.

  5. Kyle Young says:

    The “ocean of propaganda” makes this seem like reality. It also sounds like another great movie script.

  6. Sher Zieve says:

    LOL and a MUST read! It becomes exponentially better as it goes along! This is laugh-’til-you-drop stuff, so be careful not to eat or drink before reading. Best laughs in days…and we need them! Thanks to Jon…brilliant…as usual.

  7. Oscar Meyer [PIA] says:

    I’m sure you have EXCELLENT sources, but every source has been compromised by the expectation offered of “community” and the communication they offer is unreliable.

    Obviously, JoeRogan is an ASSET, but the meeting to which you refer was not recruitment; that happened years ago when NBC began airing NewsRadio. In fact, this sitcom, although largely missed by the masses, was Russian agitprop created to undermine news organizations in the US by painting them as highly emotional, largely incompetent, easily distracted and frequently staffed by “lifers” who usually didn’t understand or even care about their job not to mention the responsibility afforded to them.

    JoeRogan’s next TV effort [which is syndicated now to TBD] is further proof of his long-standing efforts to undermine the necessary and entrenched tools of informed, employed & influential individuals. FearFactor exposed viewers to uncomfortable possibilities, taking them out their comfort zone by using a medium designed to exploit emotion-it desensitized people to fear while employing an oft neglected part of the human experience, empathy.

    As the founding member & sole employee of the PIA [Propaganda & Inference Agency], I am proud to clear this up for you.

    Additionally, I would like to add that when JoeRogan moved to Austin, a hotbed of counter culture types, it’s well within the obvious possibilities this was an attempt to avoid the warranted & blistering criticism for his concerted damage to established and important channels in California and then the nation. I have not collected the needed documents to prove this, but in this trying time it’s important to believe this will be available.

    Say it ain’t so, Joe!

  9. USA Invades Israel says:

    There are three Russian Orthodox Churches in our City.

    We want to form a watchgroup to protect them from desecration. None of us are Russian, Ukrainian or even Church-goers.

    60+ Churches (Non-Russian) across the land have been recently burned down or vandalized.

    All psychopathic and despotic leaders, civil servants and bureaucrats – everywhere – need to be captured, flown to a deserted island, permanently cut off from civilization and left to work out their differences among themselves.

    Think Lord of the Flies meets Thunderdome.

    The rest of us, the people of the World, can live our own lives without their mania.

  10. Dan says:

    Myself, I am not a follower of any celebrities. I don’t care about Joe Rogan.

  11. RONALD MILLER SR., USN Ret. says:

    If not for the “quote” marks people might take them for what to believe, hope all readers know it is satire.

  12. Paul says:

    Who the hell is this bevy ?

    What a cast of characters.

    Geshe !!!

  13. Lauran says:

    Jon…great article!……do not people underestand that Zelensky is as crooked as Putin in one way?…we are too easily distracted by the propaganda given. Just because a Russian has a business in the US, does not mean that we have the right to shut it down…there are 300 companies that are US corporations that do business in Russia. We sanction them; they sanction us!..we should not even have gone into this fiasco. It is all a distraction from the Covid debacle!

    • Inna says:

      Well, I am Russian, came to the US 30 years ago as a refugee. I see here that some commenters doubt that the war in Ukraine is real. I see that some people even think that Ukrainians shoot other Ukrainians who want to escape the war zone. I have friends and relatives in Russia and Ukraine. The war is real, the destruction perpetrated by Russian troops is real, people suffering is real.

      My friend from Kharkiv, the second-largest Ukrainian city, the former capital of Ukraine, said that the city is destroyed. “There is no Kharkiv anymore,” she said crying when I talked to her on the phone. My relatives in Moscow and St. Petersburg are in shock. They condemn the invasion. Russian and Ukrainian soldiers are dying in thousands.

      Unfortunately, the majority of Russians support Putin. It’s the same mass delusion as with plandemic. Of course, it’s a part of the globalists’ plan but the people’s suffering is real. I do not understand why you think that Zelensky is “as crooked as Putin”. Putin is an aggressor, Zelensky is a victim. But it’s not the point.

      The point is that according to international law Putin started the war and is a criminal. There was no reason for this assault except Putin’s intention to restore the USSR empire. There was no “nazi terror” against Russian-speaking Ukrainians. So-called fascists are everywhere, we have Antifa here in the US, and so what? Ukraine now is suffering tremendously, unbelievably… Innocent civilians, kids are being killed… cities destroyed. Ukrainian soldiers are heroes, they manage to control the situation on the ground but in the air they are helpless.

      Two days ago Russians seized the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Station. USA, Europe, NATO are talking a lot about sanctions while Ukrainians are dying. No planes, no weapons, only promises. America is still buying Russian oil. Is it explainable? Propaganda is everywhere, which is very scary. It shows that this is part 2 of the WEF plan to weaken Ukraine, Russia, to destroy the world economy… If the West will not understand that this is the beginning of World War 3 and will not stop Russia — it will be the end of humanity…

      • Geo Martin says:

        Feels as if I was reading a BBC report, or any other mainstream media for that matter. Putin bad, Zelensky good. That’s what there is to it, nothing more.

        And there was a deadly virus killing millions then.

        Lies and more lies. Perhaps unwillingly but the above comment does the same thing.

  14. Paul says:

  15. Dr David Hill says:

    As all informed and intelligent people who do their own research to come to what is truth and what are lies based upon the weight of probability(and what all good judges use for making their judgements – there still are a few believe it or not).

    On that summing up, we know that this Ukrainian situation is all made up by the same cohorts that brought you Covid 19 and where it is all lies as usual.

    Even some US TV channels have been brave enough to speak out a little, because currently they are ‘independent’ MSM broadcasters and in this one, the highest watched ‘independent TV media outlet in the US – Newsreader and TV media presenter

    “Kim Iversen Debunks FAKE Russia-Ukraine War Videos Spread Widely On Social Media – The Hill”

    Many may have seen it, but worth posting again.

    Its about time therefore that other US and western independents spoke out likewise to this brainwashing as usual propaganda – for they would be doing a great servoce for the American people (those of course who have not been taken in hook, line and sinker).

    • Courageous Lion says:

      I watched that video and made this comment in the comment section. I don’t know if you noticed the PROPAGANDA that was being pushed in it though…

      And there was no propaganda in this video….Naaaa…Just her and the one reporter saying they “know” the Russians are being fed propaganda and blah blah blah. REALLY? If you KNOW that means you’ve been there to see it. Or have FIRST HAND KNOWLEDGE. So STFU unless you do because your credibility to any critical thinker using reason, logic and commons sense just went in the TOILET on that particular subject matter. The rest of the post was ABSOLUTELY verifiable and THAT is what you should focus on. Not an UNKNOWN that you “know”. Geezzzzz…Now lets go watch the report of the SYRIANS army devastating a bunch of civilians VIA a MACHINE GUN SHOOT RECORDING IN KENTUCKY.

      “However I have no doubt, similar fake news is circulating in Russia and in pro Russian countries showing fake news that is disparaging of Ukrainians. We’re not seeing much of it, so I can’t debunk it. So keep this in mind before you lash out at me and call me a pro Putin Russian asset at the end of this segment.” ~Kim Iversen REALLY? Show us some of the fake news circulating Kim. Otherwise what you just said is BS and you can’t back it up! Maybe the Russians are showing the TRUTH. How do you KNOW? You DON’T SO keep quite on situations you don’t KNOW to be one way or the other!

      …and you’re right to point out that this exact thing is happening on the pro Russian side in Russia, but that doesn’t mean that as responsible journalists we should call out this kind of misleading or even deliberately misleading and in some cases being seen as a kind of propaganda…
      ~Younger reporter who I can’t find the name of… MORE UNPROVEN BS! Shut your PIE HOLE unless you can BACK IT UP!

      …About Zelensky though and I get that those pictures, you’re right to point out were old pictures He’s down there though, he’s in the streets with the troops. (echo in back ground from Kim and the other older reporter “right”) I saw some right wing people on Twitter saying yea, those photos are fake and there is no evidence he is still even in Ukraine, yes there is, he’s definitely in Ukraine right now and his life is in serious danger and the Russians are going to try to kill him. ~Younger reporter…HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE STATING? Go take some lessons on accurate reporting from Jon Rappoport. Kim now interjects with her refusal to believe that statement about Putin being out to kill Zelensky.

      A LOT of this was good, but these interjections are total nonsense and nothing but more propaganda that is being fed to the viewer. “I have no doubt” that you’re just as bad as the rest of the LAME STREAM MEDIA.

    If somebody gives you a news from CNN and one from BabylonBee can you guess which is which?

    • Courageous Lion says:

      No. Can you? LOL!I get them mixed up all the time. Worse on the net is Yahoo news. But then I consider the source. A place call YAHOO! Like a bunch of YAHOOS. Truth is fiction in the Empire of LIES.

    Everybody knows ROGAN went to Russia to meet with VLADIMIR LENIN.

    And a MOST successful meeting it was…..


  18. Roundball Shaman says:

    “… as we swim in an ocean of propaganda these days, it’s instructive to know you’re reading fiction in real time, because you become aware of how nuts and bolts can be arranged to resemble truth.”

    What good can come from a foundation of lies?

    What good can come from confused and bewildered and bedeviled people?

    What good can come from the erasure and censorship of truth and reality?

    Yes, we are in a massive ocean of propaganda. But we aren’t swimming in it. We are drowning in it. We are suffocating in it. We have few life-preservers of Truth left to cling to. And fewer that are even trying to hold on to them.

    When lies become your life… When lies become who and what you are… When lies become what you defend and live for… When lies are what you teach your children…
    when lies become a national statement of purpose… when lies are what you put out on-line and in ‘history’ books… when lies are what your Leaders are the living embodiment of… when lies are what your religious leaders are defending… YOUR WHOLE EXISTENCE HAS BECOME A LIE.

    And the Truth of that is never seen or recognized when Lies have completely filled the lungs with toxic fouled waters and the sweet air of Truth cannot be breathed in.

    Drowning in a Sea of Falsehoods and Deception. What a sad way for Humanity to go out.

  21. Courageous Lion says:

    Oh COME ON MAN! You know as well as I know that this is TRUTH, not SATIRE! You may be able to fool Chairman Xiden by saying it is satire, but ain’t no way you’re goin’ to fool ol’ Corn Pop! I had him read it over and he told me that this here Jon guy has to be on the side of the Ukrainians for saying all this stuff about Joe! Joe is just a filthy rich egotistical maniacal talking head that idiots listen too. You know that! So now tell us the truth about this truth you are calling satire…who let the cat out of the bag????

  22. Brian says:

    This article should be given to the Jao Baiden administration they’re in need of fresh material, I’m sure they would be grateful and as usual build a complete narrative around it. This would prove to all useful idiots how truthful and trustworthy the present administration truly is.

  23. Larry C says:

    dammit*!!! This is the LAST time we’re hiring foreigners!

  24. Wisenox says:

    I think some people missed it, so I’ll repost the article’s opening:
