The Disinformation Company
The work of right-wing loud-mouth conspiracy celebrity Alex Jones, including a number of documentaries, like Endgame: Blueprint for Global Enslavement and New World Order, and his book The Answer to 1984 Is 1776, were distributed and or published by Satanist and Crowleyite Richard Metzger’s Disinformation Company, a company that connects technopagans and transhumanists. Metzger was the host of the TV show Disinformation, the Disinformation Company and its website Disinfo.com, featuring the tagline “everything you know is wrong,” that focuses on current affairs titles and seeks to expose alleged conspiracy theories, occultism, politics, news oddities and purported disinformation.
Metzger admits that from an early age he identified himself as a “warlock,” and that, “through a careful study of [Kenneth] Anger’s work and through this influence, in part, I continued to move towards combining my career ambitions of working in film, television and publishing with my private magical interests.” Anger, the notorious producer of Crowley-inspired underground films, was the key figure around which swirled the network of Laurel Canyon musicians, occultists, and members the Mason Family and the Church of Satan. Ultimately, Meztger considers the Disinformation Company to be a “magick business,” and explains:
Magick—defined by Aleister Crowley as the art and science of causing change in conformity with will—has always been the vital core of all of the projects we undertake at The Disinformation Company. Whether via our website, publishing activities or our TV series, the idea of being able to influence reality in some beneficial way is what drives our activities. I’ve always considered The Disinformation Company Ltd. and our various activities to constitute a very complex spell.
In addition to Alex Jones, the Disinformation Company has also been responsible for a number of apparently establishment-critical or conspiracy-inclined documentaries, such Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism (2004), Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War (2004), Bush Family Fortunes: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy (directed by Greg Palast), Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price (2005), Iraq for Sale: The War Profiteers (2006), Slacker Uprising (a movie of Michael Moore’s tour of colleges in swing states during the 2004 election, as well as 9/11: Press for Truth (2006), 9/11 Mysteries (2006).
Disinformation, also known as Disinfo Nation, was a television show hosted by Metzger, which aired for two seasons on Channel 4’s late night “4Later” programming block in the UK. The sixteen 30-minute episodes produced for C4 were then cut down to four one-hour “specials,” intended for the Sci Fi Channel in America, but never aired due to their controversial content. Those four shows have subsequently been released on a DVD, with a second bonus disc presenting highlights of DisinfoCon, a twelve-hour event held in 2000, featuring Metzger, and a host of occult celebrities, including Marilyn Manson, Kenneth Anger, painter Joe Coleman, Douglas Rushkoff, Mark Pesce, Grant Morrison, Robert Anton Wilson, Todd Brendan Fahey and others.
The bizarre irony is that, Disinformation seems to produce just that: disinformation. A telling example is Metzger’s interview on Disinfo Nation of Ted Gunderson, a former FBI agent who is known for his investigations of a secret and widespread network of groups in the US who kidnap children and subject them to Satanic ritual abuse and human sacrifice. However, Metzger’s “documentary” is obviously a mockery, in the Discordian style of “humor,” and the playing of both sides typical of Robert Anton Wilson. Gunderson’s focus has been on abuse within the CIA and military establishment, and he mentions that southern California is a pivotal area of Satanic cult activity. However, although Meztger’s documentary claims to be a “deep and undercover look” at the “shadowy figures” in Satanism today, he juxtaposes Gunderson’s comments by reporting on a pitiful group of bumpkin Satanist wannabes.

Androids are being developed that have an uncanny resemblance to people. A pinnacle example is an android crafted by roboticist David Hanson that resembles the famous and deceased science fiction writer Philip K. Dick. What makes android Dick so remarkable isn’t so much his appearance as it is his ability to hold an intelligent conversation.
The creators of android Dick uploaded the deceased author’s work onto the android’s software, as well as conversations with other writers. If the android was asked a question that had been posed to the real Dick, the robot would answer the question as Dick would. The robot was also able to answer a series of complex questions. If the robot was asked a question that it was unfamiliar with, its software would attempt to answer the question using what is called “latent semantic analysis.”(1)
Android Dick in conversation
Android Dick’s speaking abilities were put to the test in an interview with a reporter from PBS NOVA. Android Dick’s brain is comprised of a tapestry of wires that are connected to a laptop. As the conversation proceeded, Philip’s facial recognition software kept track of the reporter’s face. In addition, speech recognition software transcribed and sent the reporter’s words to a database in order to assemble a response.
The questions posed to Dick were by no means trivial. When the reporter asked if the android could think, it responded, “A lot of humans ask me if I can make choices or if everything I do is programmed. The best way I can respond to that is to say that everything, humans, animals and robots, do is programmed to a degree.” Some of the androids responses were pre-programmed, whereas others were assembled from the internet.(2)

This morning, on live TV, a reporter Alison Parker, and cameraman Adam Ward, were shot and killed during their local news report. The crew was reporting live for WDBJ7, a CBS affiliate in Roanoke, Virginia at about 6:45 am at Bridgewater Plaza near Smith Mountain Lake.
LIVE: Chilling still image of shooter by camerman apparently laying on the ground.
A third victim, Vicky Gardner, a member of the Chamber of Commerce who took part in the report, was said to be wounded and in stable condition.
Watch this news report video here:
This latest ‘Truman Show’ shooting takes this all-American genre to a whole new level. According to reports, the shooter posted his own video of the shooting on social media – on his Facebook account and on Twitter. Watch his video, shot low-res on either an iPhone or Galaxy phone (vertical rectangular format) and not on an HD GoPro as CNN and others wrongly claimed today.

[Potent News editor’s note: I have to say I generally agree with the commentor “Mark_W” when he writes:
“I am extremely disappointed the name of the genius, Royal Rife, was not mentioned. Mr Holland surely must have discovered him over the course of his investigations. Credit should have been given where due. Rife had the exact same thought 90 years ago and developed it to the point of healing many of cancer before being destroyed by the cancer industry mafia. The issues I have with this work are, the assumption that a cancer cell is malevolent, when in fact it is a correct, protective cellular response to a crisis of biological toxicity. By all means destroy the cancerous cells but you achieve nothing if you don’t also correct the physical environment which necessitated them. ‘cancer’ cells appear to be of different types in different organs, this is because they ARE the cells of those organs, undergoing cancerous processes. The ‘Cancer’ is NOT the ‘Tumour’, the Tumour is the residue. There are many successful cures of cancer that either inhibit cancerous replication or change the environment allowing the body’s own response to take place, these include Royal Rife, Alkalising diets, B17 and proteolytic enzyme treatments, herbal preparation by Renee Caisse, John Horsey and many others. All highly successful but ruthlessly, routed out by the industrial special interests whose colossal profits, they threaten.”
Here’s a documentary about Rife and here’s a video which offers criticism of the structure of TED talks in general.]

Last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 1,000 points, its worst weekly performance in approximately four years. On Monday, the index plunged by over 1,000 points early – and closed the day down 588 points. In terms of the number of points lost, Monday August 24th, 2015 was the eighth-worst single-day loss in the index’s history.
A third of S&P 500 companies have declined over 20% from their peaks and many retain high valuations despite disappointing earnings numbers. The United States Dollar Index dropped the most it has in over 5 months today to seven month lows – losing against the Euro and Yen. Oil prices plunged, with the U.S. oil benchmark settling down 5.5% at $38.24 a barrel, its first close below $40 a barrel since February 2009.
Some analysis are blaming the China currency devaluation and the drop in the Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite Index – but what is really going on?
[Potent News editor’s note: Clint Richardson wrote an article called “Stop The Religion of the Fed“. He left a comment at his article which may be related to this discussion since the Fed was mentioned a number of times in the video above:
“Usury is an interesting bird, and I am completely against it on all angles. But there’s a bit more to it than the typical “money out of thin air” concept. As a man (male or female), you are in usefruct of government property. You use the surname, numbers, titles, credentials, and other benefits of being a person/citizen of government. Thus, since you are operating as something artificial that belongs to government, the usury is attached to the person, not you. You are bonded and in surety to that fictional person, and so the usury attached for the usage of the person falls on you. This participation is the cause of usury, and this is proven when a person/citizen files for bankruptcy, and the estate is wiped. Usury is nothing but the penalty for fools who take a debt upon a borrowed name. You can blame the bankers for usury, but it is you(the reader) that begs the bank to allow it to put you into usury. As for the mass amount of usury called seniorage that is attached to the U.S. Dollar, the use of the dollar is the cause. Using something else’s property will always be attached with a fine, generally a usurious one. Want to avoid usury, stop using other people’s things!
I wrote about the gold issue in my articles. It’s just another talking point, with absolutely no proof that any gold is missing. The gold in question is colateralized to the dollar, and has a set price of $42.2222, according to the audit (CAFR). Gold will not save you, because it’s not your gold.
The agency doesn’t need to lie, because the people wont take the time to look at the CAFR. It’s all there.
The interest on Federal Reserve Notes is paid each year back to the treasury. Everything is accounted for in the CAFR.
I think Ed Griffen is just as vested as anyone else in the fraud, and he just plagiarized much of it from men like Eustice Mullins.
Again, the whole point here is to stop demonizing one small part of government and to start understanding that government is the problem, not its hundreds of agencies.

If indeed this is a false flag incident designed to demonize the Syrian government and fast-track a US-led military intervention and regime change in Syria – it wouldn’t be the first time.
More from Counter Punch…
The August 16, 2015 attack on a market in the Syrian town of Douma, just outside the capital Damascus, has caused international outrage. Condemnations of the Syrian government have poured in from seemingly all corners of the globe as President Assad and the Syrian military have been declared responsible for the attack, convicted in the court of media opinion.
Interestingly, such declarations have come well before any investigation has been conducted, and without any tangible evidence other than the assertions of the rebel spokespersons and anti-government sources. Indeed, there has been an embarrassing dearth of investigative questions asked as corporate media, who have been far from objective these last four and half years, have rushed to fit the facts to their long-standing narrative of “Assad the Butcher.”
IMAGE from NY Times – The death toll in Douma puts the incident among the deadliest air attacks during more than four years of conflict in Syria. (Credit Bassam Khabieh/Reuters)
This author fully understands that, in asking difficult questions, he will be called an “apologist,” an “Assad propagandist,” or some other such nonsense. Frankly, such name-calling means very little when compared to the suffering of Syrian people, and the untold brutality that will be visited upon them if the western corporate media and warmongers get their way and yet another imperialist so-called intervention is carried out in the name of “humanitarianism.” The goal is to ask the right questions, to cast doubt on the already solidifying propaganda narrative that will undoubtedly be used to justify still more war.
Those who work for peace must be prepared to interrogate the received truths of the media machine, to confront head on that which is uncomfortable, and to do so knowing that their motives are just. The victims of this war, both past and future, deserve nothing less.
Questioning the Douma Narrative
When carefully scrutinizing the documentary evidence of the attack, and comparing that to the claims made throughout western media, some troubling irregularities emerge. Not only do the claims seem to be exaggerated, but when placed within the historical context of this war, they seem to fit into a clear pattern of distortion and misinformation disseminated for political purposes, rather than objective reportage. Indeed, the raw footage taken on the scene goes a long way to contradicting some of the claims made by witnesses and “activists” (an interesting term in itself) often quoted in the media.
First, there is the allegation that more than 100 civilians were killed in an airstrike carried out by the Syrian military. There are certainly plenty of pictures that seem to bolster that claim, with debris scattered everywhere, aid workers carrying victims, and frightened civilians rushing around the destroyed marketplace. However, when one looks at the videos, even those provided by outlets such as The Guardian in the above linked article, one curious thing seems to be missing: bodies.
Indeed, it does seem odd that an airstrike could obliterate a crowded market on a Sunday, killing over a hundred people, and no videos or images would show bodies torn apart by the blast? One would expect to see mangled corpses, limbs scattered on the ground, pools of blood, etc. None of that seems visible.
Compare the Douma videos to those from Gaza on July 30, 2014 during Israel’s vicious war. An Israeli airstrike, which killed 15 people and injured more than 150, also hit a crowded market and caused horrific destruction. And in the videos, one sees bloodied bodies missing limbs, pools of blood on the street, and other gut-wrenching images. Or compare the Douma videos to those of the Christmas 2013 bombing of a crowded Baghdad market. The videos of that attack are gruesome, showing victims with heads partially blown off their bodies, legs attached to bodies by skin alone, lifeless corpses of children and other truly disturbing images…

(Truthstream Media) While governments and scientists continue to tell us it’s just wonderful, there is a tremendous amount of apprehension about CERN, as there has been for some time.
The CERN Large Hadron Collider just switched back on this year — the year both the UN and CERN are celebrating as “the international year of light” — for the longest round of continuous usage yet, and at a higher energy level than ever before. They are calling it “a new era of exploration of the secrets of nature.”
In looking for the “God particle” and the states of particles believed to occur at the moment of the Big Bang, scientists in Switzerland, and at other facilities around the world, will be tinkering with the very glue of life.
This video presents an alternate view of the dark side of this science, and the dangerous intentions it could have, postulating that anti-matter or “dark matter” holds the kind of stuff that demonic spirits and other potentially negative forces from other dimensions are made of, opening the door to instability, “psychological effects on people,” and other side effects that may or may not be reversible. In other words, piercing (and possibly breaking) the veil.
Is there a reason the scientific dictatorship spent so many years trying to separate science and spirituality? One of CERN’s original physicists did admit back in February that they have no ****ing idea what they’re doing.
Is the risk of CERN too great to mess with?
For your consideration…

After viewing my exposé of his erroneous assertion that the neocons are not really Zionists, the alternative media gatekeeper Robbie Martin has hardened his stance, calling my rebuttal ‘reverse Hasbara’ without addressing a single point raised.
Likely at the behest of his sister Abby, he also took a shot at “Holocaust deniers.”
He initially challenged me to a debate on the neocon subject, which I accepted, but he then quickly backed out.
Like most left-wing gatekeepers, Martin’s impetus appears to be to try to set up narrow parameters for what constitutes “legitimate criticism of Israel”, and then once these barriers have been established, dismissing anything that goes beyond his watered down analysis as off-limits, heretical and “discrediting”.
Their hypocritical use of the pejorative “Holocaust denial” is a testament to the dishonesty of the Martin siblings. While they label anyone who asks legitimate questions about the victors’ interpretation of the Second World War and the Holocaust narrative “deniers,” they concurrently decry the mainstream media’s use of the term “conspiracy theorist” to discredit dissenters and skeptics of government narratives.
