Why would Henry Makow turn his back on his biggest supporter and then viciously libel him? The answer has more to do with military intelligence than even I was willing to concede at first.
Consider the fact that Makow is pimping for verified NSA asset James Stone.
"The National Security Agency (NSA) is a cryptologic intelligence agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the collection and analysis of foreign communications and foreign signals intelligence, as well as protecting U.S. government communications and information systems, which involves information security and cryptanalysis/cryptography.
The NSA is directed by at least a lieutenant general or vice admiral. NSA is a key component of the U.S. Intelligence Community, which is headed by the Director of National Intelligence. The Central Security Service is a co-located agency created to coordinate intelligence activities and co-operation between NSA and other U.S. military cryptanalysis agencies. The Director of the National Security Agency serves as the Commander of the United States Cyber Command and Chief of the Central Security Service.
By law, NSA's intelligence gathering is limited to foreign communications, although domestic incidents such as the NSA warrantless surveillance controversy have occurred. (Source)
Forget "Big Sister", the NSA eclipses the Department of Homeland Security on the internet:
NSA's eavesdropping mission includes radio broadcasting, both from various organizations and individuals, the Internet, telephone calls, and other intercepted forms of communication. Its secure communications mission includes military, diplomatic, and all other sensitive, confidential or secret government communications. It has been described as the world's largest single employer of mathematicians, and the owner of the single largest group of supercomputers, but it has tried to keep a low profile. For many years, its existence was not acknowledged by the U.S. government, earning it the nickname, "No Such Agency" (NSA). It was also quipped that their motto is "Never Say Anything".
According to the Washington Post, "[e]very day, collection systems at the National Security Agency intercept and store 1.7 billion e-mails, phone calls and other types of communications. The NSA sorts a fraction of those into 70 separate databases." (Ibid)
It would not be hard to compromise or flip someone like Makow if the NSA was monitoring his emails and found something to hang over his head. A gross sexual perversion, for example, or related illegal pornography.
Jim Stone, as an asset of the NSA, might just be Makow's "handler", hiding in plain sight as it were.
This would explain why Makow flipped out when Stone's co-intel propaganda was rejected by Rense.com for what it was, an obvious attempt to discredit the truth. It would also explain the sudden appearance of numerous "guest authors" writing obscure pieces of propaganda for Henry Makow's website.
Jim Stone turned that rejection into a wedge. He used his compromised asset to viciously libel Jeff Rense with a plethara of lies and misinfo only an intelligence operative could generate. One truth and 10 lies. Like the big fat one about Jeff building a model railroad around his property for $100,000. The NSA killed two birds with one Jim Stone. Makow looks like a gullible idiot and Jeff is forced to respond to his ludicrous lies.
Jim Stone is serving his master well. The piece he wrote on Fukushima would have us believe that something outside of the nuclear industry, was responsible for the slow containment and flawed construction. The ridiculous assertion that someone hijacked a nuke and rode it to the bottom of the sea, like T. Boone Pickens in Dr Strangelove, is utter insanity. The only thing being hijacked by stone and his operative, Henry Makow, is the truth.
Even more irresponsible, is Makow publishing Stone's encounter with "Stormtroopers" from the planet "Fruit Loops".
":The latest storm trooper one was pretty brazen. But where it happened - there would have been ZERO witnesses. I don't know how the hell they got into position without being noticed - There were so many of them. They were in the full riot gear, and there was not a single vehicle ANYWHERE on a mile long stretch of road. It was just an empty road. So you can't walk down it in riot gear without SOMEONE driving by and noticing (cars go through about once every four or five minutes) and yet there was
absolutely nothing parked on the road anywhere. That was a high level operation, NOT the local police." (Makow: Stone is the Fugitive)
This is what happens when you watch Star Wars reruns late into the night, or you are actually trying to discredit yourself and someone else like Makow. You tell ridiculous tales that a three year old would find impossible to believe. ZERO witnesses to thousands of storm troopers, all trying to capture the elusive NSA Agent, Jim Stone.
Maybe they wanted his plans for the Death Star, or they realized his sister was also a Jedi Prince (the Force is strong with this one). No, wait, it must be his high mitychlorian count! (Its off the charts)
One thing is certain, more counter-intelligence BS will pour forth from this NSA Chosen One. I would love to see those emails, wouldn't you? They must be really juicy to bring the great H. Makow down to this level of foolishness.
