Jeff Rense is "The Bachelor"

February 22, 2012


When not posing as "an American Treasure, consummate journalist and patriot," Jeff Rense has been living yet another fantasy. He is "The Bachelor."

This fight represents a winnowing of the "Truth" movement, separating the wheat from the chaff. Should our own leaders be put to the same standard as Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich & Barack Obama? If your answer is yes, you are the wheat.

(Editor's Note: The ad below is not a parody. 
  It is currently on Jeff Rense's web site. It won't be there for long.

Rense, 66, is  "the Bachelor" offering women 30-years his junior an all-expenses paid visit to his "beautiful mountain home" on his five-acre estate. Candidates should resemble Elizabeth Kucinich and provide
several current photos: portrait, casual, and full body.

As you may know, Jeff Rense is an Ashland,Oregon entrepreneur who cut his teeth in the pet shop and tanning salon businesses. Less well known is his career as a Lothario, married seven times plus at least one common law and many engagements.  

Tuesday in an article addressing me as "Monsieur Le Pig," Jeff confirms this number but spins it as proof of his genius:

"It is true I may be 'competitive' with the likes of a Cary Grant or Liz Taylor in the marriage department but that has about as much to do with the quality of journalism at as Grant's marriages had to do with his superb acting. The common route taken with unsuccessful marriages is to stay in them. The less common route is to end them for the benefit of those concerned." 

Yet, despite Jeff's seven divorces, his ad below states that he is looking for someone with "traditional values." Obviously, he is not describing himself.

How many women have responded to this ad, only to have their lives shattered when JR put them out with the trash?

His seventh wife was a talented professional who quit her job, sold her house and moved across the country to live the Rense fantasy. They married in Dec. 2010 and seven weeks later, JR kicked her out. Her spirit is broken and she is in desperate straits. How's that for "kindness and sensitivity"?   


Read the personal ad below and check off the following symptoms. JR has Narcissistic Personality Disorder

  • React to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation

  • Take advantage of other people to achieve his or her own goals

  • Have excessive feelings of self-importance

  • Exaggerate achievements and talents

  • Be preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence, or ideal love

  • Have unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment. (I would add - has no sense of the consequences of his deeds. Imagines himself the injured innocent.-HM)

  • Need constant attention and admiration

  • Disregard the feelings of others, and have little ability to feel empathy

  • Have obsessive self-interest

  • Pursue mainly selfish goals

  • (added by HM - 1. Congenital Liars. 2. Can only see what he does for you, not what you do for him.)
He describes himself as "an American Treasure, consummate journalist, known for his kindness, loyalty, sensitivity compassion and intelligence."

I've been enjoying that loyalty and kindness lately. (The loyalty of Jeff's pack of yapping lapdogs, that is.) His hysterical, childish overreaction is symptomatic of NPD. He has demonized me in the crudest terms, decreed my career over, and flushed me down the toilet.

 "Here's hoping that Monsieur Le Pig makes his final swirls around the toilet bowl soon...and vanishes from his own self-administered flush."

He has devoted a section of his website to this. Contrast that with what I say about him.

"I don't want to destroy JR or his site, even if I could. He is doing a lot of good by providing an audience for courageous people like Bro Kapner. He helped me get my message out. For many years, I considered our relationship one of the highlights of my work." 


n the ad below, he rejects  "takers, users, deceivers, betrayers, dual-agenda opportunists or people who misrepresent the truth, either directly or by omission."

His hypocrisy has no limits.  The payments on his $30K motorcycle, $150K vintage cars and outdoor train are partly made with donations from readers who "want the truth to be told." He tries to justify this here

In my case, he says he had a right to decide what went on his website. The article in question was not on his website.  It was on my site, and I didn't care if he linked to it or not.

Yet, because I posted it, he terminated a 12-year relationship that had been valuable to us both and to the anti-NWO movement. He has done this to countless valuable allies.
This is the same problem he has with women. He can't build lasting alliances. 

His Narcissistic Personality Disorder is a liability to himself and to the "Truth" movement. People with NPD are considered psychopaths. The Illuminati do not have a monopoly on them.

This fight represents a winnowing, separating the wheat from the chaff. Should our own leaders be put to the same standard as Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich & Barrack Obama? If your answer is yes, you are the wheat.

 A Special Invitation from Amanda Rose
Jeff's MySpace Editor
You may often listen to his programs and perhaps get your (real) news from his unique internet site.  You believe in his values and admire his courage and sacrifice.
Jeff Rense is truly an American Treasure...known as a consummate journalist and patriot and equally known for his kindness, loyalty, sensitivity, compassion and intelligence.
In fact, he casts a very long shadow. If you are a very special lady, Jeff would like to make your acquaintance...

"Having spent time with Jeff in person, I can tell you that he looks exactly like his picture." --Devvy Kidd

Dear Ladies!

If you are looking for stability and integrity, please spend some time and browse through his MySpace comments HERE (turn up your speakers) and you'll gain a better idea of how diverse and unique some people still are.

We are looking for a KIND and thoughtful vegan or vegetarian, as attractive on the inside as out, someone who is fit and healthy and who enjoys some of the same things Jeff finds fun  and fulfilling.  Please, no tv or internet addicts, excessive alcohol users or those taking or dependent on psychotropic prescription drugs.  Our lady will be non-smoker, and who has no serious hidden emotional baggage or anger, repressed or otherwise.  Please, no hard core activists of any stripe.

Our search is for a gentle and intelligent woman who loves nature, gardening, the outdoors, trees and who truly enjoys the concept of a beautiful, warm and happy home.  It's hard to project an age spread because there are exceptions on either side of one.  We've decided to start with 36-43. One well-adjusted son or daughter might possibly work.  Please no C/W music lovers...that just won't work.  Some classical music interest or knowledge could be helpful.
kuciniches.jpeg(The Kucinich's, left. Pic added by HM) 

Some of you may remember Congressman Dennis Kucinich and his similar, very successful, search for a partner which resulted in his meeting and marrying the beautiful Elizabeth Jane Harper in 2005. British born Mrs. Kucinich, 32, is also a vegan like her husband. Her background can be seen here.
Again, read Jeff's MySpace page and you'll get a good general idea of what we hope to find. REMEMBER, we don't expect to find perfection, we are all human and have our own unique composition, so please don't be never know what might be perfect chemistry even though some of the details don't seem to 'fit'. If you are even 'close' and have an interest, let us know!
So, to repeat, here are some of the key personality qualities and traits that are generally important and we are hoping to find...
* Above all: kind, honest, thoughtful, sweet, happy and gentle.  A realist...people who see the world as it truly is...not as they *think* it is.  Someone who still relates to their heart as their true mind and is not ruled by the 'computer' between their ears which can cause no end of mischief, grief and trouble.
*  Please, absolutely no one who is unfortunately emotionally-scarred, 'high-mileage' or damaged; no television or internet addicts.  PLEASE, no takers, users, deceivers, betrayers, dual-agenda opportunists or people who misrepresent the truth, either directly or by omission.
*  Vegan or vegetarian.  Must be HEALTHY and happy. No smokers, or animal and dairy eaters. No fast food junkies.  Organic only.  Someone who understands that processed and GMO foods, meat and dairy are, sooner or later, killers and the primary causes of poor mental and physical health and diseases.
*  We are looking for someone thin, relatively toned (no narcissists, please!), blonde or brunette...any normal height.  Beautiful on the inside and out.  Are we seeking too much in these very difficult times?  Maybe.  Already a mother? A mom with one well-grounded child is a possibility.
So, if you love nature, the mountains, wildlife, the seasons, and planting and nurturing a wonderful organic vegetable garden; if you enjoy the concept of home and land (Jeff does not travel much), hearing the sounds of waterfalls, the wind in the trees, visiting magical mountain lakes, rafting down a gentle, beautiful river, cooking healthy meals, watching movies of all sorts, listening to music, enjoy being around someone who is very well-informed, and just loving life, don't hesitate in investigate this very special opportunity to possibly.
To participate is easy. Just email several current photos...portrait, casual and full body...of you having fun and being who you are...and a few paragraphs about yourself and why this 'event' is of interest.  We will screen everything for Jeff and send along those who seem to resonate within our search parameters.  Those Invited - if any - will receive an all expense paid weekend trip to gorgeous Ashland, Oregon. The 'winner/s' will have their own bedroom and private bath in a beautiful mountain home in a true storybook setting.  Lots to do and see!
We are looking for REAL PEOPLE with morals and vision and thoughtful, traditionally-oriented values, and who can prioritize life constructively.  Please no one with a temper - there is far too much anger in the world.  To repeat, NO ONE is perfect, nor do we expect them to be. These are just our markers for the kind of people we hope to find.  If you don't fit in or have any interest, perhaps you know someone who might.  Women from countries outside the US are welcome but travel costs will have to be shared.
We sincerely look forward to hearing from you...because America still possesses some truly wonderful, honorable, intelligent, level-headed, HONEST women. And good luck to each of you who might consider this very Special Invitation. Your name, email address, photos and descriptions will remain absolutely private and confidential.  Please send your information, or questions, directly to me at:
My best wishes,  
Amanda Rose

Lie, steal, and fight often

Not show guilt or remorse

Often be angry or arrogant

Susan said (February 23, 2012):

It sounds to me that JR is simply looking for a no-strings attached live-in whore. A man/woman relationship that doesn’t exist outside of sex slavery or abusive relationships. Hence the steady stream of disenchanted woman whom he has conned for sex for at least the short-term. Has anyone checked his basement for chains or his backyard for bones?

MS said (February 23, 2012):

I didn't know to laugh or cry. In my humble opinion, he doesn't want a "wife", he want's a 'toss-away', someone to take out sexual aggression on and when he's finished, and/or bored, send'em packing. IMHO, there is most definitely neurosis at play but his defenses are most a Venus Fly Trap, the insect doesn't realize the danger until it's half digested.

James said (February 23, 2012):

Like many others I have been doing the rounds on the usually alternative news sites for a number of years. Rule number one for me is to always keep an open mind. One can't deny that Rense is a good place to pick up news. However, his headlines are often way over sensationalized - which is suspect. In my humble opinion he is the master of cut and paste - no more.

I think the good thing that has come from this fall out (for me personally) is the knowledge that he has been married nine times. In my opinion anyone that has married so many times is is very very odd indeed. I have never heard such a thing.

It is also very interesting and informative to see those that have supported him in his attack on you. If i ever met someone that had actually been married so many times i could not at all take them as being serious or normal. Obviously abnormal.

Clifford Shack said (February 23, 2012):

Are you familiar with Byron Katie?

She is the creator of The Work, a self-help form of Self-inquiry. She proclaims,"Thou shalt judge!" as the negative judgements that people make of others are a direct reflection of how we see ourselves. It is based upon the ancient teaching that we cannot see the Negative in others unless we possess those same qualities ourselves. By bringing out judgment we learn. By studying another's attacks and judgmentss we learn about them. Reading judgments is quite amazing whether they are our own or those of others, particularly those who judge us!

Dick said (February 23, 2012):

An instant classic. I almost sprayed my (vegan) soup on the

I'm frankly a little worried for these women – they receive a
mysterious invitation to visit the secluded retreat of a mysterious
and wealthy suitor; they must enjoy classical music and have clean
vegan blood. Henry, I think Rense might be a vampire.

Sam said (February 22, 2012):

This is incredible! No “high-mileage” women and Jeff has been married 9 times?! It appears Jeff tries to attract women with “stuff” to avoid having to expose himself. At first I thought the argument between Henry and Jeff was some low-level ribbing, but then I read the Le Pig article and then I knew that there is something deeper emotionally with Jeff.

A vegan replies to Critics said (February 22, 2012):

I've been vegan for years and as anyone who knows me can attest, I am anything but calm. Quite the contrary. My wife accuses me of having radical road rage. Quite possibly from having driven tractor trailer for 25 years, but there you have it. Vegan does not mean wimpy.

I will admit, stamina is not as great as I would like, however I do not have the baggage from carrying double digit pounds of undigested meat clogging my bowels or arteries either.
Thinking clearly is a great advantage to going vegan. And lets not forget the undeniably disastrous health consequences of "BEEF!" and meat diets. Duh....

I feel better, I move better, I climb over objects better like I haven't done in years, almost like a teenager.
I'm 56 years old, 5'10 and 165 lbs. I do 200+ sit ups a day, I walk an average of 9 miles a day, I lift weights and I don't smoke, drink or have any other vices. My physician is astounded at my turn around.

The benefits of eating products that didn't come from creatures having a heartbeat is immeasurable. Clarity of thought is huge.
People commenting here about vegans having issues are using an obviously demented person to attach unsubstantiated claims about a lifestyle choice to attack. Though the target is justifiable, the ammunition in this case is not.

One final thought. People seem to think exercise is as important as diet. IT IS NOT! If it doesn't go in, it doesn't go on.

Anna said (February 22, 2012):

Just saw Al's comment, and YES! He is dead right. All vegans, without exception (and a good number of vegetarians too) are unstable lunatics. Veganism isn't a human diet, which may go some way to explaining why they frequently behave like another species...

Maybe 'food' for thought for a future article!

David said (February 22, 2012):

I have to agree with you on "Lap Dogs" chief among them is Paul Drockton. I read him occasionally under Dead Man Musings but then lost interest with the appearance of his Mormon visions and financial offerings. Everything's for sale now.

If he was effective in battling child abuse, then I applaud him for those efforts. But clearly, Drockton is rising to defend his advertising agent here. His contributions to news and analysis of current events has yielded to advertising his derivatives consulting and precious metals business.

Funny thing about Fukushima. I haven't read Rense articles on Fukushima. I noticed that he always top listed them each day or two. I have been of the opinion that the tsunami was caused by a planted explosion. I cannot remember reading Stone, nor can I recall what sources it was that led me to lean to that explanation. Why is the theory of Stone so hard to consider? Don't we all, including Rense, know that 911 was an engineered event most likely with the participation of Mossad and key zionist figures? Why the frantic reaction to this theory? It's entirely compatible with the twin towers and Oklahoma.

Al Thompson said (February 22, 2012):

I've been watching your exchange with Jeff with some amusement. What stands out to me is that this guy is a vegan. I've never met a veggie
head that could handle very much stress. I noticed it in my early twenties. His religion is probably some variation of an eastern mystical one that I don't see much value; of course, I believe in God but not any "religion." A man's body needs meat; you know, BEEF! Every vegan I've met is completely unstable and has PDD (personality deficit disorder). They jump to conclusions, become overly emotional, and they are extremely self-destructive. If you don't believe me, just try to have an intense conversation with a vegan. When the pressure builds, they completely fall apart and leave the scene of the discussion. I think the wiser course of action is for you not to vex the man anymore. He can't help it and this continual exchange may eventually harm the status of your website. That's my opinion.



Thanks Al, for bringing a new perspective to this subject!


Christopher said (February 22, 2012):

All of these attempts to discredit you and Jim Stone are so laughable, it's pathetic. Rense has got to be the biggest bullshit peddler on the planet!

If I ever doubted Jim Stone's theory, I am even more convinced now that he must be on to something. If not, why would Rense be so afraid to publish the story, when he is so ready to link to the latest fake UFO videos posted on YouTube?

Something is definitely not right here...

MP said (February 22, 2012):

Let's not become victims of the "or" mentality. Henry "or" Jeff? How about both! Both Mr. Makow and Mr. Rense are great men who are doing excellent work for society. They are not perfect but, let me give you the news, no one is.

As proof of Henry's greatness, he chose to publish a statement by a Peter (February 22, 2012) that takes the side of Jeff Rense. This takes a lot of courage. I have seen Jeff do same.

A & V said (February 22, 2012):

I have always read your work with great interest and admiration.
I have read Jeff,s answer to your criticism and must admit that staying in a relationship for the sake of children is "dubious" , must somehow be profoundly deranged.

Here is Jeff's quote:

"Some people will stay in a relationship for 10 or 20 years...or even longer...for tragic or dubious reasons such as habit... routine... children... ".

All the best to you Henry!

Judy said (February 22, 2012):

Henry,I am listening to the recent Rense - Youchi Shimatsu interview. The important point they make is that Fukushima could not be intentional because why would anybody do this contamination to such a large area. Well, I have spent enough time wading through Jennifer Lakes blog. I think she could spread some light on this argument. She documents the very beginnings of the nuclear era in relationship to the development of the medical/military structure. She exposes a very complex, multilayered history. We have been under fallout (and medical experimentation) intensely for seventy plus years. Take some time here Henry and understand why this large contamination would fit in with the whole nuclear scientific medical community.

LA said (February 22, 2012):

When posting about Jeff Rense and Fukushima, you might want to mention the fact that he takes Yoichi Shimatsu seriously. In an interview from February 13th Shimatsu said that the oceans on Earth all came from Mars which lost it's EM field, so the water turned to ice and got sucked into space. Now, Shimatsu is saying that the particles from Fukushima are going to destroy the Earth's atmosphere and all the water on Earth will be sucked into space. I am not kidding you, he actually said this. I can send you the interview if you find it hard to believe.

Naturally, after that I could no longer take these clowns seriously. He calls your article "trash", but what about the garbage he posts like the Strange Sounds videos which are clearly hoaxed and easily debunked (

I have had the exact same experience you have had with Jeff Rense when I went up against a new age cult leader, Laura Lee Mistycah. She did the EXACT same thing Jeff Rense did in response to your articles. The same words, the same behavior.

I had my own article about Fukushima affecting plants in Romania( that I tried to get Rense to post, but he just ignored me, even though I used his own facts in my theory. As users have commented on your site, Rense will ban any site or source on a whim, regardless of the importance of the information.

So thank you Henry, I'm really glad someone with enough media attention finally said something about Jeff. I've been calling him a troll in my letters for months(with well backed arguments), but now I'm glad the rest of the world can know too.

Julian Lee said (February 22, 2012):

Nobody who affirms family, race, religion, and nation -- is working for the Zionists. Long live these four -- long live Henry Makow.

Anna said (February 22, 2012):

That advertisement is as ridiculous as it is disturbing. For any normal woman, it would set off alarm bells left, right and centre. As for the bit about his graciously tolerating "one well-adjusted child" - well, they aren't going to remain that way for long with Mr. Rense as a (short-lived) step-father! I don't want to wade in with mud-slinging, but I sincerely hope no woman is going to drag some poor child into this dire situation just so Mr. Rense can hit matrimonial double-figures...

Adam said (February 22, 2012):

Does character matter? We lament the lack of good character in our 'leaders' but then defend one in whom we've built a cult of personality around. Anyone who has been in a long term marriage knows that it takes maturity and selflessness to make it last. Any relationship can, and sometimes should, be terminated for the best interests of both parties. However, excessive numbers of marriages indicates a character flaw (i.e. Narcissim, etc.).

Why does that matter with Rense? Well, first it's the cult-of-personality and the leadership position he enjoys in the truth movement. Rense wields more power over multitudes than do many of the elected officials. As such, a high level of scrutiny is advised lest we be led astray.

Does that mean I am dictating to you who to follow? NO! Stop following cults-of-personality. I've now seen an uncanny and heretofore side of Rense that truly does suggest a legitimate case for personality disorder; furthermore, the letters articles/letters he posted against Henry Makow do not have the mark of a 'professional journalist;' but rather, read like a sophomoric diatribe.

I can't verify whether the Jim Stone story is spot-on accurate though it seems worth considering -- truth seeking demands considering all sides while withholding judgment until definitive evidence is found.

Peter said (February 22, 2012):

If I have to choose between you and Rense, I would choose Rense.
He has a remarkable track record which is his website. He unfailingly dispenses information about what is going on in the world. His interviews are secong to none.

So what if he's had multiple marriages ! I wonder what the motives are for your hateful and horrible attacks.

I guess I don't trust you Makow.
I think you're full of shit over this. A lot of your material is wacko too. Maybe you're just jealous - or maybe there are other motives. Maybe you are working for the Zionists after all !
