New Podcast: My Early Years in Journalism

Finding my voice and a future; the strange trip and the heroes

by Jon Rappoport

I’ve wanted to do this one for some time.

The beginning. 1982. Going from writing fiction and poetry to journalism in the blink of an eye, with the recommendation of my friend, LA Weekly writer Rockie Gardiner.

And after that, nothing was the same again.

So go to my substack page, throw in a few bucks, subscribe, and listen. Your support makes all the difference.

I explore a number of issues as I tell stories in this podcast. What is journalism supposed to be about? What were editors telling me? What was I advised about “the dead end” called investigative reporting?

The world of news is filled with strange characters, and now and then heroes show up. People who pass on a piece of crucial advice, put a piece of boggling evidence on the table, force you to evaluate what you’re really doing. Relentless people who don’t back down.

I talk about these people. I give them their due.

For example, Bill Perry, one of my earliest interviews in 1982. Bill fought his way to top of the food chain in the public relations field, and then one day walked out on the whole show. I can still remember, all these years later, how he told me that story. How he explained WHY he quit the game. You don’t forget moments like that, no matter how many years pass. You don’t forget something called morality.

There was a story I wrote in 1984, about nuclear security at the upcoming Olympic Games in Los Angeles. And after publishing it in a major magazine, I decided I had to tell somebody about what I’d found. The lack of security, and the potential threat. But who the hell do you talk to about that? Who can you trust?

As I was recording the podcast, I remembered the whole episode. So I describe it. Me, trying to deal with the federal government.

I discuss the field of so-called alternative journalism, as it was then—and still is, to a degree, now. I was mostly writing for those alternative outlets, but I discovered there were limits to what they wanted to cover. And there was the boredom, too.

The mind and soul numbing boredom of taking writing assignments that were so limited, I might as well have been working for the Washington Post. What are you supposed to do about THAT?

It was a key turning point for me. The fact is, every reporter is supposed to experience that exhaustion. Yes. Because it then forces him to make a decision about WHY he’s doing what he’s doing.

And then he takes one of two roads. He either gives in, or he goes further OUT. In my case, I lit the fuse on an explosion that is still reverberating for me.

In the podcast, I discuss my first flash of education about toxic corporate chemicals and life-destroying vaccines—a lesson that came from the unforgettable Ida Honorof. NO ONE who’s ever met Ida forgets her.

She was about 4 feet 10, about 50, skinny, with gray hair, when I ran into her in Los Angeles. A non-stop fireball. It took her about a minute to press into my hands a large sheaf of documents revealing corporate knowledge of pesticides resembling deadly Agent Orange. She commanded me to go home and read the documents. I obeyed. You could say my mind was then permanently blown.

I tell the story of another relentless character who came out of nowhere and practically forced me to go on the radio and reveal what I was finding out about AIDS. He told me he’d been Lenny Bruce’s agent. I think he pretty much existed on nuts and seeds. In his forties, he looked fit enough to get in the ring and fight for a world title.

These are people the normal world would retreat from. People who single-mindedly pursue a course of action whose limits are only defined by THEM.

They teach you something. Something realer than real.

In this podcast, I do my best to give you the shapes, the colors, the people, the decisions, the sensations of FINDING A WAY in a profession that, despite its claims about “the free press,” doesn’t want to make room for a writer who breaks the rules—

—Which ultimately led me to start a one-man news outlet 22 years ago.

But I did that only after having gone through some important years of grabbing a seat in the journalism bus and taking the ride.

Have a listen to the podcast. I believe you’ll find something valuable there.

— Jon

Your mother-in-law isn’t going to refuse the vaccine

by Jon Rappoport

May 6, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

Let’s get one thing straight. I’m not writing for your mother-in-law. I’m writing for you.

Your mother-in-law is still deciding whether to vote for Jimmy Carter or Ronald Reagan. She thinks J Edgar Hoover is Herbert Hoover.

A few readers have suggested I should make several adjustments, so my work is more “accessible” to the general public.

The general public is a collectivist cheeseball which has been sitting in a frying pan, with the flame set on low, for a very long time.

I published my first article in 1982. I’ve never made any adjustments.

Since then, I’ve only worked one change. I stopped taking assignments from editors. I don’t like them. I’ve always had the crazy notion that if editors want writers to carve away THIS and add THAT, they should write the pieces themselves. There are three reasons they don’t: they can’t write; they’re filled with self-importance; they’re lazy bureaucrats.

For me, writing has ebbs and flows. They depend on me finding a tag-end I like, which I then pull on. The article then takes shape. The tag-end might be a headline I read. It might be some absurd insane sentence uttered by a news anchor. It might be a scene in a dream. It might be an answer to the question, “What would be crazier than the last tag-end I found?”

If I can’t think of a tag, I sit here and stare at the wall and keep thinking. Or I watch a cooking show. Or I go over the five or six pretentious scuzzy reasons doctors deploy when they assure readers the virus exists. Or I fly my Gulfstream to London, where I dine with the Queen, and discuss how non-existent climate change will force us to eat insects for protein. Or I find a medical review admitting that, in 2001, only 18 flu deaths in the US could be traced to a flu virus. Actually, the number is zero. Or I reread the NY Times opinion piece which revealed the three major clinical trials of the COVID vaccines were designed to show the injection could prevent nothing more serious than cough, chills, and fever—after which the Times never mentioned the subject again. Or I consider how fear of the virus and love of the virus and the conviction the virus exists merge like a subconscious nursery rhyme. Or I imagine a time when men and women would have laughed off orders to lock down and would have gone about their lives without a second thought. And THAT’S a tag-end:

JULY 20, 2020. Look at what happened to a great city, to the people of that city, who over several decades were subjected to forms of cultural mind control…and who then became DIFFERENT.

…People turning into caricatures of themselves. In the process, they were ripened for takeover—which is what happened when the fake pandemic was declared.

New York. Once upon a time, I was married to it. No more. But it’s still my city.

I was born there. One of my early memories was looking across 2nd Avenue at a candy store. This was 1943. The candy store no longer sold Fleer’s bubble gum—the best bubble gum—because the latex was needed for the War effort. But the rumor was, they peddled it under the counter for an exorbitant two cents a chunk, with the cartoon inside the wrapper.

When I was 22, after growing up in the suburbs, I moved back to NY and for several years lived among some of the smartest asymmetric people in the world. You could have an argument with the dumbest person in the city and it would be a smart argument. Everyone had opinions, and they could back them up. There was no such thing as political correctness, believe me. If you had uttered the phrase, no one would have known what you were talking about.

New York was a great city. The thing was, no one was proud to BE a New Yorker. That false synthetic layer of goo came much later. In the old days, there was no pose, no artificial front. People had ideas, they had talent, they had survival instincts.

The best jazz musicians in the world lived and played in New York. When a giant like Bud Powell was playing at Birdland, you could get in for a dollar and sit in a hard wooden chair and listen to him until two in the morning. A buck for the greatest pianist in the world.

And now, the city is wrecked and boarded up, and the people are locked in.

Out on the street, the few aimless glazed pedestrians wear masks. They’re not the same people. They’re replacements. Pods.

OVERNIGHT, the people of New York could throw off the whole phony pandemic, not only for themselves, but the world. They could come out of their apartments and go back to work, defying the petty little lunatics like Cuomo and De Blasio. They could open up their restaurants and bars and stack in the customers. They could start building again. They could open wide the libraries and museums and fill the concert halls. They could open up the little groceries to all comers. They could laugh in the face of the public health authorities.

And it would be OVER.

In 1960, that’s exactly what would have happened. And not for some cause. Not for the chance to do a little virtue signaling. Not for the sake of “being a New Yorker.” For survival. For continuing to live their lives, people would have shaken off that slimy fraud Fauci like a five-minute bad dream. A joke played by an idiot.

They would have looked at the screaming lockdown headlines in the newspapers on the corner stand and shrugged and gone on their way. “You’re telling me I can’t walk down the street and listen to John Coltrane at the Jazz Gallery on a summer night? You’re out of your mind.” And the Termini brothers, who owned the club, would have packed the place even tighter than usual, just to thumb their noses at the mayor and his con artists. They would have put in a call to their contact at Democratic Machine headquarters. And it would have been OVER.

No one would have obeyed. Independent scholars would have walked into the 42nd St. library, as they did every day, and gone to the reference desk and asked for manuscripts on ancient Roman law and the Walt Whitman papers and the early maps of the city. The quiet upstairs macrobiotic restaurant on 2nd Avenue would have served supper as usual. The Cedar Bar on University Place would have turned in another raucous night. The Irish bars would have been jammed. A chamber orchestra in Washington Square Park would have performed Vivaldi, with the sounds of traffic from 6th Avenue in the background. Miles Davis would have played two sets at the Apollo. If Ravi Shankar was in town, he would have laid out a few stunning hours of ragas at the Asia Society and adjourned to an East Side apartment to continue on until dawn. No one and nothing would have obeyed a lockdown.

Pandemic? Virus? Get serious.

That New York…where is it? Who are all these flat minds swearing allegiance to medical fakery? Are they passively waiting for gold stars on the blackboard from the teacher?

In the old days, New York had DISDAIN. You didn’t get by with platitudes. You didn’t blithely mouth Left or Right and get away with it. The city was plugged into its own non-stop bullshit detector. What did you have to OFFER? Aimless blabbermouths were consigned to a special circle of Hell.

There was no political PROGRAM. Today’s “New Yorkers” would apparently be afraid to live in a landscape like that. They wouldn’t know which way to turn. They have a desperate need to become slaves to an IDEA. In this case, an idea about a virus.

In the 1960s, concealed by the Vietnam War, the city was undergoing a transformation into a cartoon of itself. That’s when the synthetic notion of “being a New Yorker”—based on nothing—started to take hold.

There were many reasons. The shrinking value of the dollar. Crippling street drugs. Mind numbing leveling television. The raising of children to be targets of advertising and fetish objects in a consumer society. The new New Yorkers were taught that liberal politics were a necessary adjunct of their status. Liberal equaled big government. Messaging from every possible quarter was aimed at turning the people of the city into servants of share and care as defined by government…

Going to doctors and acquiring serial diagnoses of physical and mental conditions was starting to take off as a social trend. The medicines and the vaccines were, of course, toxic. The city was taking in more immigrants than it could handle. There weren’t enough jobs. Desultory schools were steamrollered. Literacy was being destroyed. Even skyscraper architecture was moving away from unique structures like the Chrysler and the Empire State, into functional steel and glass boxes. Signs of the minds.

With people dumbed down enough, they would fall for any con. Any piece of shiny gloss. And it was eventually provided:

New York media covered the rise of New Money in the city as if it were a perfumed cultural signal of a dawning utopia. By the 1970s, envious intellectuals in the city were reading and admiring hyped chronicles of the emerging $$ stars of Manhattan: painters, fashioneers, stock speculators. And yes, Trump. The content of these celebs’ characters was entirely irrelevant. All that mattered was that their hustles were ringing up extraordinary sales in inflated dollars.

And finally, to view how thin and vulnerable new New York had become, and how brainless—when, in 2020, the fake pandemic hit, and lockdowns were announced, the population promptly folded, stayed indoors, went into mask and social distance mode without a whisper of protest.

In short order, the city was made over into abject wreckage, shuttered, obedient, loyal to a psychotic delusion.

In a silly song he recorded long after its internal demise, Frank Sinatra said New York was the city that never sleeps.

Now that’s all it does.

CODA: If the September 11th attacks had happened in 1960, there would have been no need for Billy Joel or the Yankees to rally “all New Yorkers.” The people of the city would have looked at the firemen and cops as human heroes risking everything for other humans. Period. That would have been enough. More than enough. That would have gone deep into souls and minds. Where it counts.

—Entraining minds. The job of the Super-State. Reworking independence into devotion to a synthetic pose of altruism.

But in this phony pandemic, it’s good to be BAD…

I’m not talking about looting and burning. I’m talking about a different type of BAD. Think it through. Figure it out. It’s always there, like a tag-end. You just have to pull on it…

I don’t want half a revolution

Advice to reporters and others

by Jon Rappoport

May 5, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

“I’m not anti-vaccine. I just want them to be safer and more effective.”

I love that statement. It’s a lullaby. When I can’t go to sleep at night, I just repeat it to myself a few times, and I’m out cold.

It’s typical of half a revolution, which never wins.

For the past 32 years, I’ve presented overwhelming evidence that no vaccine was ever safe or effective. The whole “science” of vaccination is a rank fraud.

But stuffed-shirt journalists, who sort of go against the grain while maintaining a front of respectability, don’t want to venture that far. They know the price they’ll have to pay. They’re hedging their bets.

Occasionally, one of them will take a swipe at me. It cements their position as middle of the road. Which is where they want to be.

Except, liberty and freedom, which is what we’re fighting for, against a global coup by mass medical murders, isn’t something you win in the middle of the road.

You don’t win by trying to come off like a Washington Post reporter who just happens to have different and dissenting ideas. That’s what half-ass looks like.

That sort of person is basically saying, “I have a machine mind like other machine minds. The difference is, I’m inputting different data and therefore drawing different conclusions. If you, too, have a machine mind, read what I write and let’s establish truth and justice…”

The long-term effect of that is like pissing through a fire hose to put out a conflagration taking down a city.

This is simple. If one group of “superior” machine minds wins against another group of machine minds—regardless of which issues come out on top—there is no revolution. LIFE AND FREEDOM have been excised out of the equation.

A considerable amount of money and effort have gone into building a modern culture composed of what looks like science and rationality, but isn’t. It’s a cartoon. A fucking cartoon.

There’s no JUICE in it.

That’s why I use the phrase machine-minds. Minds that calculate and process and collate and compare and then exude “better answers.” This is your educated class. Careful, cautious. Circumspect.

“Delivery, sir. Here are flowers you ordered. I’m sorry they’re dead.”

“I don’t mind dead. But I ordered roses and you brought me tulips. I can prove it. Let me just find the receipt here on my cell phone. And then I can show you these withered blossoms are actually tulips. There are 32 differences between the two types of flowers…”

That’s your educated class.

See, I’ve been at this for 38 years. Reporting. Writing. Actually, I’ve been writing for 66 years. I’ve made the cases I wanted to make. I’ve shoved the evidence in people’s faces. The overall medical cartel is waging a VERY successful war against the people.

You have to turn that evidence with torque, with leverage, into a flamethrower. You’re not just trying to set the record straight and bring in truth, you’re using the truth to crash the gold-plated systems of machine minds.

Those minds are remote. Distant. Distant is where Big Tech domeheads operate from. They profile, they plan, they crunch trillions of pieces of data, and they develop strategies to build a civilization that looks like their minds and their computers.

When one of these high-IQ blown dry characters develops his version of a conscience, and turns whistleblower, he’s a hero to his ilk. He speaks their language. He thinks the way they do. He geeks like they geek.

If I have to guess which guy has more freedom in his belly and his brain, I’m going with the man who lives up in the hills of Tennessee with a shotgun and a dog. If he doesn’t like what I’m writing, I might think about his reasons for a half-hour. Whereas, when an “alt. journalist” claims I’m “going too far,” I know exactly what his game is. He’s spraying his usual brand of sanitizing respectable room-deodorant.

I’ll put this another way. Two men are discussing how to choose a wife. They’re looking at two different lists of characteristics a man should consider and check. But neither man mentions LOVE, so it doesn’t matter which list they decide is superior. They don’t know what love is. What they’re really discussing are machine-thoughts.

If the COVID narrative had never been launched, if we were living now as we did in 2018, we would still have a medical cartel taking away our freedom and killing and maiming an extraordinary number of people. And that will still be the case, even if all COVID mandates and restrictions are defeated.

Plus, the Brave New World on the drawing boards is fronted by medical people. Three of its main features are genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and human-computer interfaces and hybrids. If you think all possible freedom is now under fire, you haven’t seen anything yet.

Way back when, I was briefly trained in two schools. The first was formal logic, taught by a beloved college professor with an extraordinarily sophisticated mind and a huge heart. The second school consisted of two or three encounters with Ida Honorof, activist and author. She was barely five feet tall, and she had the energy, in her 70s, of ten tigers. She explained to me one afternoon, on a street corner, that officials in Los Angeles were spraying a version of deadly Agent Orange in the Angeles National Forest. She handed me a few pounds of corporate and government documents detailing the massive toxicity of a variety of pesticides. She kick-started my life as a reporter.

Neither one of these people engaged in coddling. They didn’t sit around planning their fronts and poses of respectability. They didn’t want half a revolution. They didn’t equivocate.

I’ve never been a big fan of equivocation. I’m over at the I-don’t-give-a-shit end of the spectrum.

Find answers—then shove in all your chips. At the end of the night, don’t leave anything on the table.

Fortunately for all of us, there is a life after this one. But we’re here now, so we’re fighting.

Make it COUNT.

In the wind and the rain and the storm, issue no apologies.

New podcast: The Whole COVID and AIDS Fraud: My 35 Years of Investigation

The complete story for the first time

by Jon Rappoport

May 3, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

The podcast is now up at my substack page. It’s a blockbuster. Four hours (part-1, part-2). The deepest myths of COVID and AIDS—exploded.

Kick in a few bucks, subscribe, and listen to it.

When I began exposing COVID as a complete fraud—right at the beginning, in the winter of 2020—people asked me how I could describe the whole picture of the fake pandemic so quickly.

My answer was: AIDS.

I had done all the heavy lifting back in 1987-88, which resulted in my first book, AIDS INC., SCANDAL OF THE CENTURY.

COVID, in key respects, is a mirror image of AIDS.

Two gigantic scientific and medical frauds.

Now, in the podcast, I’m telling the whole story of my research, how it developed, how I rooted around in the dark, in 1987, and finally found the key clues that broke down the barriers.

I’ve wanted to put all this on the record for years, and now I have.

And in the podcast, I dismantle the deepest frauds of COVID as well.

COVID, scientifically speaking, is a rerun of HIV/AIDS.

The COVID virus story, the test, the case numbers, the treatments, the targeting of populations, the use of “the virus” as a vast cover story to conceal boggling ongoing crimes—it’s all one CONSTRUCTION with connected parts.

For 35 years, I haven’t stopped exposing the medical cartel. And I’ve made it VERY clear, since 1988, that political reporters who want to expose deep political truth MUST understand the titanic medical issues at the root of what’s being done to our world.

The method of analysis I employed and refined in 1987-88 applies today, without changing a single thing. In the podcast, I describe how I arrived at that method.

There are heroes I learned from along the way, and I bring them up in the podcast. They’ve stood firm against storms of attacks from the establishment, and their contributions must not be forgotten.

Starting 35 years ago, my position has been: when I find the truth, I don’t just bite off a piece of it and show it to people.

I lay it ALL out.

I don’t decide what is palatable and what is “too much to expose.” I don’t make that calculation.

This means that certain facts I lay out on a silver platter disturb all sorts of myths and legends and fairy tales that are universally accepted.

So be it.

Ever since I started working as a journalist, in 1982, at the age of 44 (I just turned 84), I took that approach. Dig, keep digging, and report everything I find. IGNORE “NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES.”

There is only the choice of whether to hold back or go all the way.

Holding back entangles a writer in “career decisions” and judgments about what “audiences can handle.” When you go that route, you end up cutting your own throat and stifling your own energy.

To me, a good day for a journalist is seeing something big you didn’t know. You found it out and you told people about it. The bigger the better. The more apple carts you upset, the better.

And when it comes to medical apple carts, the shockers are astonishingly profound.

So take a ride with me in this podcast. I’m blowing the cover off the very biggest and deepest myths I’ve found. Including the secret temple of virology.

As always, thank you for your support.

My new podcast: Kill-Shot Psychiatry, George Carlin, hero Peter Breggin

And the Real Drug War That Is Eating America

by Jon Rappoport

April 26, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

The response to my launch of podcasts has been terrific.

Go to my substack page, pay a few bucks to subscribe, and listen to something that is definitely unique. I assure you, I’m pulling out all the stops.

The recently launched and failed streaming debacle, CNN+, could only wish they had my podcasts to deliver. They would have built ratings through the roof—because people want to UNDERSTAND the real issues that radically change their lives. Issues I’ve been investigating and reporting on for 35 years.

These audio presentations give me a chance to blend my personal experiences with hard information. I can finally tell the stories behind the stories—how I came to discover hidden elements of the Deep Culture that has been transforming the West.

It’s far from doom and gloom, because there have been heroes I’ve met and known along the way. Men and women who’ve stood against the tide. So these podcasts are their stories as well.

My new podcast, which is up at substack now, is: KILL-SHOT PSYCHIATRY, GEORGE CARLIN, AND HERO PETER BREGGIN; THE REAL DRUG WAR THAT IS EATING AMERICA. (Part-1 is here and Part-2 is here)

It’s the story of one of my deepest and longest investigations.

I describe my first face to face meeting with Dr. Peter Breggin in Los Angeles. It was a major turning point for me. Peter is the pioneering psychiatrist who blew the whistle on his own profession and, by sheer force of personality and relentless intelligence, armed with a mountain of shocking facts, survived all the blows his colleagues could try to rain down on his head.

In person, and on-camera, Peter is a star. When he starts talking, he delivers truth as few people can.

George Carlin was a different kind of star. My one conversation with him, a few years before his death, shed light on something entirely unexpected. We spoke between sets of one of his electrifying performances in San Diego—and I realized how audiences were changing.

They were drugged—and not in a good way (if there is a good way).

They were casualties in the drug war. I go into the real nature of that war in my new podcast. At various times in my 84 years, I’ve seen, up close and personal, the effects of medical and street drugs on radically different groups of people—in normal small towns all the way up to corporate board rooms.

This is the real zombie apocalypse. And it has as much or more to do with big banks as it does with venomous street dealers.

I’m committed to making this war known and understood, in every possible way—and I pull no punches in the podcast.

There is another hero I talk about in the podcast, a DEA agent I interviewed off the record, who spelled out how the whole Congress and the President (Obama) opened the door wide to Pharma companies—traffickers in the deadliest drugs ever to hit America’s streets.

A significant amount of the insane and incomprehensible statements and actions we’ve been witnessing around us have their hidden roots in effects of drugs. The celebration of drugs (both street and pharma) took off 50 years ago. It was a planned operation, designed to destabilize and take down societies and nations.

In fact, much earlier, in the 1950s, the CIA, during its infamous MKULTRA mind control program, was consciously seeking out drugs that could disable populations. This was one of the secret aspects of MKULTRA.

The result of that plan and that search came to fruition—but not within the CIA. The overwhelming success was transferred to the field of psychiatry, which became the kissing cousin of the CIA—and psychiatry was medically justified (through fraudulent research) and enthroned with official status by national governments.

Psychiatry IS the official gatekeeper of the mind and consciousness.

And it is also the dispenser of killer drugs.

Originally, I planned to boil down and limit this podcast, time-wise, but I quickly realized that, of course, the material and the vital stories were the whole point…and as long as it took, I would tell the tale. In the fullest terms possible. No holds barred.

That’s what I’ve done.

If you know my work, you know I’m not out to bore people. Facts are supposedly to be ALIVE, and they are when you see the human effects behind the data.

So tune in to my latest podcast (Part-1, Part-2) and listen to the raw truth about what happened when the CIA’s mind control program became America’s new Culture.

As always, thank you for your support.

My new podcast: Inside the Den of Thieves

My Experience inside the US Political System

by Jon Rappoport

April 19, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

As you know, I’ve launched weekly podcasts on my new substack page. Go over there and check it out. I appreciate all subscriptions.

That’s what substack is about—readers supporting individual writers. It’s the fastest growing platform of its kind in the world. And so far, zero censorship.

I’ve intentionally tested them with my first outpouring of articles on controversial subjects—and not a peep from them.

I’ve been doing substack for only a month, and already they’re listing me in the top hundred on the subject of Culture.

The new podcast is Culture in spades.

I tell the story of testifying before 2 Nevada State legislative Committees 20 years ago, during a spate of school shootings across America.

It was a surreal day, starting with the fact that I had no idea how or why I was invited to testify. I had nothing friendly to say to the Committees.

My background and research had to do with the dangers of the psychiatric drugs, particularly the antidepressants, which cause some people to spill over into violence—including murder.

That wasn’t on the list of ideas the Committees were looking for.

As the day wore on, I got a very strong dose of rejection from one Committee member—which was a joke to me, because I eat those sorts of political critiques for breakfast.

Most of all, I gained an extremely vivid and up-close impression of what these political animals were all about. And that’s the story I focus on in the podcast.

Who are these people? What is it like to be sitting and standing next to them and overhearing them talk, when the cameras aren’t there?

This is why I made the trip to Nevada—to find out. And I did.

I wanted to get in BEHIND the official nonsense, behind the political ideology, behind the appearance, to the reality on the ground. The reality that makes you want to take a shower as soon as you’re done.

It’s important to see and hear and feel these creatures in their native habitat.

At the time, I thought I should have a notebook with me, so I could jot down impressions and observations on the spot—but as soon as I stepped into the conference room where I’d address the first Committee, I knew that wouldn’t be necessary.

The whole scene unrolled like a magic carpet…minus the magic. I said to myself, “I’m never going to forget this.” And I haven’t.

Culture—such as it is today—is the main reason I started writing at substack. I wanted an outlet for everything I see moving around us that is transforming the past, present, and future.

My approach to it—full frontal attack, satire, surrealism, fiction—is all hands on deck. No holds barred.

There is no other way, as far as I’m concerned. We’re all in a circus, where the ringmasters are crazy and most of the audience is still asleep or drugged.

I just turned 84 last Saturday, and I’m still discovering new resources as a writer.

Thank you for your support. I hope more of you will go to my substack page and kick in a few bucks for a subscription.

LANGUAGE and STORY aren’t dead yet. I’m shooting them out there and expanding them with no limit.

A long time ago, I learned that when somebody says SURRENDER, you say NO DICE and you keep pushing, no matter what.

That’s what I’m doing.

My new podcast: The Great Tradition of Imagination

And what it means for you, the individual, now

And for the next 10,000 years of Earth Culture

by Jon Rappoport

April 12, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

My new podcast, THE GREAT TRADITION OF IMAGINATION, is now up at my substack page. You can go there and listen to it.

This podcast is 30 years in the making. It’s filled with personal stories that illustrate the Great Tradition; as well as my research on the subject that actually began in 1961, in New York.

At that time, I was working with an extraordinary healer, Richard Jenkins, whom I write about in my book, The Secret behind Secret Societies. Richard was a key figure in pointing me to breakthroughs about imagination and what they meant.

For the past few thousand years, Earth Culture has done everything in its power to downplay and bury and distort the power of imagination.

This is more than an elite operation. It’s an effort of the rational mind to take charge of ALL aspects of life, under the assumption that there is no other way for humans to survive.

To say this is a “mistake” is like saying failing to eat food or breathe air is a mere mistake. The vast overreach of the rational mind has imposed incredible limits on the individual human being.

The truth is, the individual certainly does need the rational logical mind; it is essential; BUT it is not everything. Left to its own devices, without a “partner,” it eventually becomes destructive—because it comes to resemble a Machine.

And humans have an astounding ability not to notice they are beginning to think and act like machines, in patterned and repetitive ways.

But when humans finally open the door wide to their own imaginations, the whole basis of living shifts.

Given its unlimited space, imagination is another kind of breathing. We don’t stop and question our intake and exhale of air. And when we begin to navigate life through and by imagination, we don’t question that, either. It’s a FACT, as natural as any physiological process.

Except when imagination is in full play, the LEVEL of living and experiencing and pursuing our desires rises.

Unlike other cultural traditions recorded in the history books and taught in schools, the Tradition of Imagination has never been recorded or taught.

And it doesn’t exist in groups. It exists in individuals, in every area and country, down through time.

The Tradition of Imagination isn’t borrowed or stolen or bought. It is alive, potentially, in every individual. It’s never too late to wake it up.

Over the years, I’ve often written, “Every individual is an artist of Reality.” In my new podcast, I have a lot to say about what that means, and the extraordinary “distances” it can travel.

Everything I’ve written over the past 30 years has had three motives.

One: Expose and attack the crimes of the cartels and their elites who are trying to run this world.

Two: Expose the absurd and destructive Culture that is spreading across the world.

And three: Clear away, and put to the side, all this insanity and show what a real Culture would look like, when that Culture IS THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE POWER OF HIS IMAGINATION IN ACTION.

I always come back to the individual and I always will.

I hope you’ll go to substack and listen to my new podcast.

My latest podcast: The Real Technocratic Experiment On Earth

And the Counter-Experiment

by Jon Rappoport

April 5, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

This podcast has been percolating for several years. I finally recorded it and posted it. I hope you’ll listen to it at my new substack page.

It dives deep into the real intent of the technocracy’s biological experiments:

TRANSGENDERISM; GENETIC ALTERATION; THE BRAIN-COMPUTER MERGE.

I contrast these experiments with a hidden thread of history that no one has covered: THE TRADITION OF IMAGINATION.

In the area of genetics, we know that researchers are pioneering ways to change human biology. The most public strategy is the RNA COVID “vaccine.”

But behind the scenes, much more adventurous experimentation is proceeding. For example, the creation of a new caste system, whereby genetic programming would doom humans to live out their lives with varying degrees of diminished intelligence. Outfitting them to work in what amounts to a slave society.

On the other end of the spectrum, we have the utopian promises of higher consciousness, achieved by the merging of brains and computers. The brain, it’s said, will be able to download extraordinary amounts of knowledge and “insight.”

There are plans afoot to use 5G technology as the gateway into “sensory immersion.” Virtual experiences in which the user can touch, taste, smell, see, and hear what is going on at any locale on the planet.

In my podcast, I drill to the bottom of these and other experiments aimed at the takeover of humanity. What are the technocrats really thinking? What limits their minds?

And most important of all—what is the other side of that coin? What do free and independent individuals do with their imaginations, on their own? What paths do they explore? What paths have they explored since the beginning of time?

This podcast casts aside all the limits that have been imposed on history by historians and pseudo-scientists, who tinker with various scenarios and wind up nowhere.

Every individual is unique, if he would see it. And with freedom and imagination, his potential is unlimited.

In the podcast, I tell personal stories that illustrate something about the path I’ve taken—not to suggest it is anyone else’s road, but to show what can happen when the individual cuts loose from the framework and context of society and moves out on his own.

Technocracy IS the framework and context of society, updated with technology which is aimed at “taming” us and making us forget what we can achieve and know.

THIS is the war.

It is a war of building false cultures, tearing them down, and building new ones, over centuries. It is the unwritten story of Earth Culture, which has been designed to convince us to argue over minor differences in spaces with low ceilings.

Whereas, the truth is: there is no ceiling. Each one of us can climb higher and farther than any technocrat has ever dreamed.

I hope you’ll listen to the podcast. I made it to inform and challenge anybody and everybody, and to re-inspire myself.

Self is vital. Self is utterly unique.

In society, we’re all supposed to be the same. The. Same. Sharing. Good. Little. Neutral. Children.

But we’re not.

I don’t want to blow part of that societal myth away. I want to blow it all away. Because what we see then is truly extraordinary. It’s what we see in the greatest dreams we’ve ever had.

To My Readers: What I’m doing now and why

by Jon Rappoport

March 28, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

Dear Reader,

Basically, I’m making a lot of moves right now. As I mentioned last week, my new substack blog has launched. Go have a look. It takes no prisoners.

Soon, I’ll be posting audios there, as well as articles.

About a year ago, it occurred to me that I was keeping the lid on a lot of issues that were making my blood boil. I was putting them aside because of the COVID insanity.

I’ve written over 450 articles on that boggling scam and the death march it’s enabled.

And then it occurred to me that, despite the fact I’ve posted articles here at NoMoreFakeNews almost every day for 21 years—that’s right—I’ve ignored subjects that interested and excited and motivated and outraged me.

So why not go all out?

As a friend once told me (dozens of times): A WRITER WRITES.

So that’s what I’m doing now—on three blogs all at once. NoMoreFakeNews, OutsideTheRealityMachine, and Jon Rappoport on substack.

But even that isn’t enough. There is flesh and blood experience that fits very well with audio. Spoken narrative.

Things I think of in the middle of the night that spin themselves out into stories. Which need a storyteller.

For example: my research on HIV in the 1980s and 90s. There were so many characters and situations and intrigues. I published my book, AIDS INC. in 1988, but I could have written another book about my experiences while writing AIDS INC. The journalists and scientists and politicians of all different types I met and spoke with. The good, the bad, the ugly. How I stumbled into my method of research—which has paid off to this day.

There are a dozen other books I could write (but storytelling is better) about MANY medical-political scandals I’ve uncovered over the past 30 years. I’ve already published the details of the scandals. I’m talking about the people, the heroes, the crazies, the criminals I met along the way.

Because that’s part of work and LIFE. It opens up new dimensions. It rarely gets to breathe out in the open. But it should.

I’ve written a great deal about art and imagination. But inside that are the many artists I’ve known. Who they were, what they were doing, and why.

And then there is the boundless future ahead. I’ve written about that, too. But there is more to say—including experiences I’ve had that gave me clues and insights and presumptions and a view of time that opened closed doors.

I have interests that many people don’t share. For instance, sports and television. They’re both absurd farces. But they’re also something else. In my life, I’ve known far more athletes than artists. I was once an athlete myself. I know what makes these people tick. I admire athletes I’ve known. They were ALIVE.

All in all, ALIVE is good. Knowing it, sensing it along whatever roads it travels makes us better. It keeps us from closing down, from narrowing our focus to the point where we think we know all there is to know.

I’ve been rebelling and at war since I was 17. I’m 83 now. Rebellion has served me well. Bypassing and refusing possibilities of lucrative careers have served me well. Rebellion has enabled me to CREATE on my own terms.

Which, quite possibly, was my objective all along.

So that’s what I continue to do.

I like beginnings.

This is one.

As always, many thanks for your continuing support and interest.

–Jon

Update: You’ll see my first podcast pop up on my substack page tomorrow. It’s my personal story behind the story, about a few of the key figures in the HIV wars of the 1980s and 90s—especially Peter Duesberg, the biologist who took on the entire medical research colossus single-handedly. I knew Peter. He reminded me of one of my childhood heroes, Jack London’s Martin Eden.

The podcast is also about sharp turns in life—key moments when I found gold in unexpected places…from unexpected people…outsiders I never knew existed.

Another Major Announcement from Jon

by Jon Rappoport

March 22, 2022

(To join our email list, click here.)

Well everybody, this one has been in the planning stage for a while.

Finally, the day is here.

I’m adding a THIRD BLOG! And this one is on substack.

Here is the link.

It’s live right now.

Go over, check it out, and read.

My work over there…how to describe it? Let’s call it raw commentary on the Culture. Which means anything and everything is fair game. Television, sports, politics, art, big cities, the Wild West, rabid consumerism, censorship by idiots, media, news, and whatever else I can think of that interests me on a given day.

The subjects are different from the ones I take up here at NoMoreFakeNews or at OutsideTheRealityMachine. And the writing is…more extreme.

My aim at substack—just like the current 2 blogs—is five new articles a week, every week.

That means I’ll be busier than ever.

That’s all right with me. I’m excited.

Looking back over the past few years, I see that I’ve put certain—what should I call them—writer’s impulses—off to the side, on the shelf, in order to focus on events that have been surrounding all of us.

But then it occurred to me that I could “do everything at once.”

Why not?

So that’s what this is about. All 3 blogs cooking at the same time.

At substack, I’ll be blowing the doors off “a whole lot of rooms in the house that are supposed to stay quiet and empty”—but now they’ll be filled with energy and surprises. What’s called CULTURE is supposed to be approached with some sort of dry intellectual concern.

Which is exactly the opposite of what I’ll be doing.

Check it out.

Thanks for all your support.

–Jon
