Parts of the Independent Media: Losing Their Compass


Independent Media does a great job of counterbalancing the corrupt & lying Mainstream Media. Yet, many of its leaders appear to have lost their compass.

The Independent Media in general

has done a great job of counterbalancing the corrupt and mendacious MSM (Mainstream Media). However, it’s disappointing to see how certain leading alternative media researchers, journalists and websites have gotten caught in the trap of duality, anger, judgment, the fraudulent left-right paradigm, blaming false enemies, failing to deeply question MSM narratives and failing to grasp the bigger picture of the worldwide conspiracy. Election season in the US tends to bring out the worst in people, and this has certainly been no exception inside the Independent Media. For a long time, I have greatly admired people like Jeff Rense, Alex Jones, Stefan Molyneux and others who have done such a great job exposing the conspiracy, but all of them have in one way or another got caught in a “limited hangout” and have taken paths that lead to nowhere. Don’t get me wrong – I still respect them for what they’ve done in the past. However, the topic of Donald Trump and the theme of Islamic terrorism have apparently confused even some of the most seasoned researchers and leaders in the Alternative Media, making me wonder: have parts of the Independent Media lost their compass?

Islamic Terrorism = Zio-Islamic Terrorism

Let’s begin with the topic of Islamic terrorism. Those in the Alternative Media criticizing the reluctance of certain politicians like Obama to use the term “Islamic terrorism” (out of fear of violating the illogical and ridiculous rules of political correctness) are right, up to a point. You do need to call a spade a spade. You have to acknowledge a problem before you can handle it. However, they have failed to recognize the real force behind Islamic terrorism – Zionism. It is really the Zionist regime, and their intelligence agencies like the Mossad, who are engineering so many of the false flag events that end up getting blamed on Islamic terrorism and ISIS. Israel has its dirty fingerprints all over 9/11, the original grand-daddy of the false flag events that brought Islamic terrorism to the forefront of people’s minds as the “new enemy” to fear and hate at the beginning of the 21st century. ISIS is the pet Frankenstein developed by the CIA and Mossad. There are numerous clues in all the European false flag attacks of 2015 and 2016 (especially in France and Belgium) that the Mossad was involved. We know that the Israeli front group SITE (led by Israeli agent Rita Katz) conveniently “finds” and releases ISIS and other “Islamic terrorist” footage before the terrorists themselves do. Even the former DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) director Michael Flynn admitted that the US was helping to create a fundamentalist Salafist group in the area (that became ISIS)!

Yet, despite so much evidence of Zionist involvement, we still see respected Alternative Media researchers and journalists like Jeff Rense (, Alex Jones (, Dave Hodges ( and many others talk about the threat of ISIS to the USA (laughably absurd, since the US has created and funded ISIS all along), and talk about Islamic terrorism as though it were a real, independent phenomenon. Time to wake up, guys. It’s controlled chaos. It’s social engineering. You’re losing credibility big time by buying into it.

Islamic terrorism is really Zio-Islamic terrorism, when you look closely.

Islamophobia and White Supremacy in the Independent Media

On many of the aforementioned sites and more, there is a strong (and dangerous) underlying current of Islamophobia and white supremacy. Some will come right out and boast of it, while others will keep it under wraps a little more, but it’s there. They are coming from the idea that the white civilizations of Europe and North America are the best and finest in the world, and that we are now in a religious war and facing a clash of civilizations. To frame the geopolitical issues occurring right now in such a way is very limiting. Yes, the issue of mass migration to Europe has many sides to it, and it is fair for people to want to protect their borders and culture. However, the mass migration is yet another example where things are not what they seem. It’s another orchestrated event using Muslims as pawns to create chaos, infighting, division and fear. Instead of focusing on Muslim migrants, it would be more productive to look at who caused the conditions (war) that caused these people to flee their homeland, and who is funding young men to take arms and join a rebel or terrorist group.

David Icke continues to be a leader in this regard, showing both sides of the migrant issue in his Headlines, and not falling into the trap of hating a particular group of people. Interestingly, David recently called out Paul Watson (English reporter who works for Alex Jones) for “condemning hate with hate in your eyes and … buying so many official stories without question”. Stefan Molyneux is another who has been vehemently outspoken against migration. I have listened to quite a few of his presentations, and the normally intellectual Stefan has become very emotional in urging white people not to give up all their ancestors fought for in establishing free societies. However, while unfettered mass migration can dilute a culture and make it easier for a controlling group (Government) to rule people, on an ultimate level, freedom knows no color. As Justice Harlan ruled in the 1896 case Plessy v. Ferguson:

“In view of the Constitution, in the eyes of the law, there is in this country no superior, dominant, ruling class of citizens. There is no caste here. Our constitution is color-blind, and neither knows nor tolerates classes among citizens. In respect of civil rights, all citizens are equal before the law. The humblest is the peer of the most powerful. The law regards man as man, and takes no account of his surroundings or of his color when his civil rights as guaranteed by the supreme law of the land are involved …”

The Founding Fathers who authored the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution did not get their inspiration from their skin color. Freedom is for everyone. There’s no reason why any group or nation of any color or ethnicity cannot set up a free society. In the history of humanity, enlightened people and prophets have come from all races – Buddha was Indian (black), Lao-Tsu and Confucius were Chinese (Asian), Jesus was Middle-Eastern (brown/black), and Gandhi was Indian (black). Why are we so fixated on color?

Too many people are drinking the Trump kool-aid. Time to wake up. And no, that doesn’t mean I support Hillary.

Alternative Media Support for Trump – Drinking the Trump Kool-Aid

As I said above, election season can bring out the worst in people, in the sense that people fall so deep into duality, get so entrenched in the meaningless and fake left-right paradigm, get so caught up in being right and making someone else wrong, and ultimately go deeper into unconsciousness by making new opponents and enemies. It’s pretty sad to see. The support dished out to Donald Trump (probable pedophile, ardent Zionist and highly connected to the NWO) by Rense, Jones and many others is extremely disappointing. They have fallen so deeply into the Democrat vs. Republican trap (when both parties have long been controlled by the same force) that they may as well work for the conservative arm of the MSM! By drinking the Trump kool-aid so much, they have made the mistake of confusing what they want to believe is true with what actually is, and in doing so, severely damaged their credibility.

Take a look at the recent shocking and cringeworthy example of Alex Jones and Cenk Uygur (The Young Turks). Uygur is a former presenter on the MSM MSNBC, so he is not a real Alternative Media researcher like Jones, but he does have a large following with his Independent Media channel. Uygur is Democrat all the way, and Jones is Republican all the way, and they had a nasty verbal joust in the video which got physical. The whole thing is a disgrace and shows just how much the Independent Media is wallowing in confusion and delusion. Why would you want to follow any of these guys? Talk about a fall from grace. Alex Jones has gone from someone who did genuinely excellent research on the Rockefellers, Rothschilds and international bankers and who courageously broke into Bohemian Grove (risking his life) to film Satanic ritual (that really runs the world), to someone merely pushing the same old shallow headlines about how good Trump is and about how evil Islamic terrorism is. We have known for years his refusal to touch certain topics like Zionism. Meanwhile, others who follow or admire (conservative Texan) Jones like (conservative Texan) Mike Adams ( have gone all Republican and Trump crazy and likewise have fallen into the same old boring, predictable and superficial left-right trap. Talk about a let-down.

The RNC and DNC, in addition to being corrupt (check out former DNC chairwoman Wasserman Schultz’s scheming and plotting for Hillary), are essentially religious ceremonies where the masses worship their new savior and give away all their power. It’s the same old game. Why on earth would any respectable Independent Media outlet buy it? We need to empower ourselves and stop looking outside for something or someone to save us. We Don’t Need a New President; We Need a New Consciousness and a New System.

Conclusion: Keep Your Compass, Principles and Vision of the Bigger Picture

My message here is this: do your research. Think critically, no matter whether you are reading the MSM or the Independent Media. Step out of old paradigms and limiting ways of looking at the world. If you want the truth, you’re going to give up limiting notions like Islamic terrorism, Trump kool-aid, migrant invasions, white supremacy, clash of civilizations and other mental junk. Months ago I wrote the article 44 Reasons to NOT Elect Hillary Clinton and yet I still get questions and comments from people assuming I am pro-Trump. Later I wrote articles exposing Trump and people naturally assume I am pro-Hillary. When are people going to get out of the left-right paradigm and wake up? C’mon! What are you waiting for?

The point of this article is not to criticize Independent Media analysts like Rense, Jones, Molyneux, Hodges, Watson, Adams or anyone else (because they have all done great work exposing the New World Order and are better than clueless or lying MSM reporters reading from a script) as much as to encourage you, the reader, to go beyond dead-end roads and seek a deeper truth. Look for the inherent bias of each researcher and website. I myself am not immune from this; I am working on eliminating my own mental junk as I go. Our quest here is to go as deep as possible into knowing who runs the world, how they are doing it, how we are being deceived, manipulated and controlled, what is true and what is false, and how we can attain freedom. I welcome questions and comments below.

This is absolutely spot on in every respect. Thank you Makia.

Paul Scholes July 29, 2016 - 12:51 pm

Hello Makia, keep on with the tremendous work you do, I know you are legit, and I know Jones is a fraud.


A fellow truth seer.

Peterdj July 29, 2016 - 1:01 pm

Brilliant article, shame it turns out this way some of them I will no longer watch nor follow. They are unable in staying independent from any party, it just becomes a fighting match in who is right. David Icke is my hero, this man does his research and doesn’t take sides and only points out the wrongs and the rights. The Independent Media should pool together in their news gathering and fight the current deceivers.

Geoff Turner July 29, 2016 - 1:13 pm

Great insights with balanced perspectives on constructive criticism of peers

Kay Johnson July 29, 2016 - 1:52 pm

Wow, I’m so very happy to have read your very well written article at a time when I had just about made the decision to walk away from it all. You have hit the nail right on the head. It has become so apparent to me that the controllers really are pitting us against one another when excellent independents have themselves succumbed to the division. We must think critally about everything we read. I cannot compromise my own morals to vote for Clinton or for Trump as neither deserve to sit in the Oval Office and I cannot choose the lesser of two evils when it comes to my country. Thank you for this article. I look forward to reading more from you.

Ron Marr July 29, 2016 - 2:08 pm

enjoyed your article. The force behind the scenes are masters of technology and illusion. It represents war, chaos, hatred, genocide, poverty, terrorism and is applied through Zionism. The Rothschild bankers who created and control Israel with terrorism also now control the United States, Europe, Russia, China and nato. They are now guiding us into world war lll. You are right, we must return to consciousness because together we form the human spirit the powerful force on earth.

Valentin Angelov July 29, 2016 - 3:30 pm

Thank you for the good article!

karla hass July 29, 2016 - 4:08 pm

Your articles are excellent! I agree totally with everything I have read by you so far ! I’ve been reading David Icke since 1999 and he is my hero – good or bad – I would not know half of what I know without reading his material,,,,, Keep up the good works ! I hope we will all make it through these terrible times and more people wake up to what is really happening ! Best regards to you ,,,,,,,

The migrant crisis is heart wrenching. These people are running for their lives just to stay alive. And what do citizens of the west do? They psychologically torture the migrants who are being physically tortured by having their homes, families and countries destroyed by NATO, US and EU.

What in God’s name is wrong with people who torture the migrants with their psychotic attitudes. It is pure evil. It has become my litmus test of those voices on the internet who I will never listen to again.

The other litmus test is Trump, the neofascist pathological rapist. Not just pathological liar and pathological narcissist like Clinton and Obama, but a pathological rapist as well. Ask his victims who are now taking him to court for his sickening sexual perversion that they were subjected to.

So how is it that Americans are falling over themselves in their support of Trump and engaging in psychological torture of the refugees?

I think it is some electromagnetic ray gun which is sprayed on people to make them robotic mind-numbing morons. Honestly, anyone who has bought into hating Muslims and hating Muslim refugees, while drooling over Trump, has well and truly lost their mind.

Makia, thank you for calling a spade a spade. I also have been quite disappointed over some of the rhetoric and behavior of the independent media ou call out. However, I can also see it from others point of view in terms of mass migration. The concern over physically sick people, unvetted terrorists and other concerns has given migrants a bad name. Leaving borders open is not a good idea, but neither is giving in to hate and phobias. Our governments need to stop using/creating these situations and using migrants as pawns to further their agendas. It is a sad situation indeed.

JahRasta August 10, 2016 - 5:25 pm

Some are ‘Controlled Opposition’ posing as Independent Media. They will take you only so far down the rabbit hole. Hence we all need to do the work and seek our own knowledge and truth. On the flip side, if it weren’t for some of these guys, a lot of us wouldn’t be here.

Christopher P August 14, 2016 - 5:57 pm

I left the following comment under this article on Wake Up World:

If you want to see evidence of what’s behind supposed truth-movement types like Alex Jones, Mike Adams, and even Jim Marrs, you should check out the work of researcher, film maker and radio host, Josh Reeves. His website is His newest film, The Spellcasters, is now out and available as a digital download, and it ties these people to, of all things, Scientology, which backs right into the CIA, mind control and black magic.

The film began as an examination of who controls Hollywood and branched out from there, picking up on aspects of Reeves’ earlier films, The Secret Right, volumes 1 and 2, which focused on a more “right wing”, fake-Christian dominionist version of the CFR called the Council for National Policy, or CNP, also an establishment/CIA run group. A primary connection between the Secret Right films and the Spellcasters is the fake or controlled-opposition aspects of the truth movement / alt. media. Alex Jones has had several CNP members on his show, and has downplayed the relevance of the group and any connection to or knowledge of them when questions about them arose.

And speaking of Jones’ supposed infiltration of Bohemian grove, I’m quite sure this was contrived and there was never any real risk to him. This was touched on in both films. Jones didn’t expose anything new with that stunt, and as other YouTubers have shown, he goes on about hidden cameras on the trails and all this stuff that he never actually shows on film. In the Spellcasters, Reeves talks about how the camera man with Jones at the time was Jon Ronson, author of the book The Men Who Stare At Goats, later made a movie. That book/movie was based on a clandestine psy-war group headed by General Albert Stubblebine, who is an important link in the whole picture. The group involved, for one, remote viewer Ingo Swann, who connects right back into Scientology.

These films are a must-see if you want to fill in more of this picture. It becomes apparent that a nexus of truth/patriot types including Jones and others was never legit or independent. If you look into Reeve’s work you’ll find out where the terms infowars and prison planet actually come from.

Edgardo Perez-De Leon August 18, 2016 - 1:15 pm

Makia we need you. You are the light that shows that the left-right paradigm is a falsity, is a distraction. It is an impediment to science and progress and deprive us from our humanity. When looking at Alternative Media consider provide exposure to LaRouche PAC and the Hamiltonian (new publication)and make clear that Daily Koss and Daily Beast are cheap mouthpieces of the Democrats, even when they provide valuable information, as with many Republican’s mouthpieces. It is important to make clear that the truth is not behind false flags.

John Thurston August 26, 2016 - 4:22 pm

Makia, I agree with many of your points especially in relation to the sources (and false flags) of many of the burning issues of today. Rather obvious to see the hand of the establishment behind what’s happening. But I don’t fully agree with your view that most of the key figures in alternative media have bought the kool-aid about Trump. I think what Trump has come to represent (irrespective of whether it is true or not) is the anti-establishment figure in the presidential race who for the first time in a long time can actually win. That is why I think he is supported although not wholeheartedly by many in the alternative media sphere. As the Germans say, it’s a choice between leprosy (Clinton) and cholera (Trump). And they choose cholera because at least there is a treatment!

John Thurston August 26, 2016 - 4:29 pm

Sorry I accidently pushed on the submit button too early. Trump could be another false flag but I as most of what he says doesn’t conform to the standard establishment view, that is why he has become a focal point. Yes, he has said many racist things, the difference is that up until now Trump as far as we know hasn’t ordered the murder of anybody like our present president and former secretary of state. Yes the accusations of pedofilia should be taken seriously but it hardly compares to the depths of depravity that the Clintons have stooped to in exchange for power. In any case, we will see what happens. My expectation is we will see the most blatantly rigged election in the history of the US for Clinton to become president.

Makia Freeman August 26, 2016 - 7:32 pm

Thanks for your comments. I respect your opinion. For me, I can’t quite get behind Trump. There’s something mentally unstable about him. I can’t fully trust him.

mosaddique August 28, 2016 - 8:16 pm

Thank you for a great article.
I thought it was only me who had begun noticing how for example was focusing on the wrong things. Especially Islamophobia and Immigration among others. I am so disgusted that I have even stop visiting that site. It was once my favorite source of independent news. No more.

Your analysis is spot on and your exhortation to people to come out of these useless MSM peddled paradigms (left vs right etc) is also spot on.

People need to engage their brains more and learn to read in between the lines and become savvy at analyzing events.

For example what on earth would Muslims gain from killing each other and help the media demonize them?

Ask who is gaining and you have your villains.

Sarah Jenkins September 2, 2016 - 6:40 pm

Great article. Qatar-owned media is by definition not independent, though.
I’m more concerned about zionist controlled opposition; Naturalnews and newstarget, owned by zionist Mike Adams, for example, Joseph Farah’s WorldNetDaily, and Dave Hodges TheCommonSense show and contributors Hagmann and Hagmann and others, all zionist gatekeepers like Alex Jones. Lots of good info at all, while protecting our most dangerous enemy.

Steve Parker September 10, 2016 - 9:55 am

I am of a certain age where research was something that had to be physically done by going to libraries, small seminars, reading books and articles, and where information had to be disseminated and interpreted and it was up to you to decide what may or may not be “truth”. People caught up in cults, had the “truth” delivered to them without the need for critical thinking. Modern “independent” media personalities seem to have become cult leaders and are spoon feeding their own version on their adoring, or brainless, followers. I understand that there are experts or people with relevant experiences of particular situations or politics or conspiracies and that these people can often be blind to the overall picture because of the very narrow limit to their own interests. It is our own responsibility to listen to all views and to intelligently find the nuggets of truth to determine the overall picture. Saying that, I am very wary of the “big” names in the alternative media, especially Alex Jones who appears to me to be running a media empire not unlike MSM where he has sponsored links, advertisements and the answers to everything where he can lead his listeners to the required beliefs.
It is a big scary world out there and the elite have the resources to manipulate pretty much everything except our ability to independent research and critical thought.

Tonia MOrrison September 10, 2016 - 7:18 pm

Thank you for an insightful, intelligent article..I am very concerned that more of us do not see the habit of falling into duality no where more evident than in these useless elections..I encourage those seeking to move beyond to analyze the last 36 yrs of Republican and Democrat presidencies and, besides a personality change, what major policy changes did we experience?

Irma Eklin September 10, 2016 - 7:40 pm

Welcome to Europe and you`ll know why we hate asylum seekers. After masses of them invated here, our rape rates and assaulting of women and young girls (even kids) has increased dramatically. Our safe cities had changed and that´s not right! Like here in Finland most of the 32 000 asylum seekers are young men from Iraq.

Makia Freeman September 11, 2016 - 5:59 am

Yes, I see your point of view. The migrant rate epidemic is horrible.

Freespirit January 25, 2017 - 7:15 pm

I have been fighting this fight since the late 1960’s (I’m 76) and unfortunately I must conclude that it has gotten and continues to only get worse every year.

1871,followed by 1913 and then 1933-34, has everything to do with it. Assassination of the Kennedy’s was the COUP De Gras – LITERALLY

Donald Trump is not helping, at all, nor will he, in my estimation….My educated opinion, born of years of studying, and watching the Political and Economic deterioration and its causes.

I further believe, other than some improvement in the MATERIAL life of Americans, Peace and Freedom WILL NOT advance.

Most Americans, unfortunately, will be satisfied by that.

Helio February 6, 2017 - 10:47 pm

The alt-media isn’t “confused”. They haven’t “lost their compass”; they were in on it from the start.

Funny how many of the leaders in the movement harped on about paradigms, and the ‘luciferian controllers’ wanting a Clash of Civilizations, as described in Albert Pike’s Three Wars, and yet they’re now inflaming it.

Listen to this short audio interview about raising standards in the alternative media. VERY IMPORTANT:
