Monica Lewinsky... an Israeli Agent? Only at Rense.com

There is, at the moment, on the front page of the Rense website, a one-sided "article" by someone named Mark Glenn that takes aim directly at Israel for all of the various "crimes and misdemeanors" that Israel has perpetrated against the United States.

Contained within that article, amongst all of the other clangers, is this colossal absurdity, which is demonstrative of the kind of "independent journalism" that Jeff Rense promotes:

"For blackmailing President Clinton through one of your intelligence agents, Monica Lewinsky, in order to prevent a coherent peace program from being pushed forward between yourself and the Palestinian people that you have brutalized and murdered for the last 50 years, we bless thee."

That's right, folks - Monica Lewinsky was an Israeli intelligence operative who had oral sex with Bill Clinton in order to blackmail him, and prevent him from pushing through a coherent peace program (never mind that Clinton was the best friend the Palestinians have ever had in the White House, and that the Oslo Accords were as good as a deal is ever going to get).

Only at Rense.

Let me tell you, the Mossad must be slipping. If I was going to run a honey-trap of any sort, I would have picked someone better looking than Lewinsky!

Seriously, though (more or less), one can always count on good old Jeff Rense and his wacky band of loons - they never miss an opportunity to promote any anti-Israel claim or theory, no matter how patently absurd it is.

Oh, jeeeez... Somehow "laughable" just doesn't do the trick!

I've come to see Rense as less a threat, and more of a laughingstock. I mean, how many people really take any of the stuff they see there seriously.

This came out of a Vanity Fair article on pro-Israeli American Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell and his shady dealings with Likudnik Bebe Netenyahu, who is arguably worse in the rightwing racist department than Ariel Sharon.

And don't forget, Falwell was gifted with a jumbo jet from the late Likudnik and Stern Gang Terrorist Menachem Begin.

I'm not going to get into an argument about Sharon and Begin. That's not what the Rense Watch is for.

The point here is that the assertion that Lewinsky was an Israeli agent is absurd on its face, with not a shred of evidence to support it, and yet Rense ran it as a legitimate item. Ridiculous doesn't even begin to describe it.

Monica Lewinsky, Agent of Mossad. Sounds like a crappy SNL skit.

I've always looked at Rense as more of a humor page then anything else. It's a place where the nutty can gather together to read up on conspiracies they already believe - Holocaust denial, UFO coverups, "Zionists" controlling our government, Velikovsky catastrophism, etc. They don't go there for convincing, just affirmation. You're good enough, you're smart enough, and the Jews and little green men are out to get you.

It's actually a good thing that it's still a fringe site. I'd only be concerned if Rense ever gained widespread acceptance, and that doesn't seem very likely.

Then again, if that were to happen, I'd have to check here for updates more often!

Good site, Paul. Keep it up!

Thanks for stopping by.

As I said, I find Rense laughable. Anyone I know with an ounce of sense finds him laughable. The problem is that there are a not insignificant number of people out there who do not.

To be fair, not all of the items on his site are crap - but enough of them are that it makes him dangerous. Guys like him always hide behind the shield of "I can say whatever I want", without realizing that freedom - any freedom - also implies a duty to exercise it responsibly.

Still, he can say whatever he wants. He can have all the Holocaut deniers on the program that he wants. He can pretend that he's really just anti-Zionist. Whatever. It's a free country.

But those of us who disagree are free to point out when and where he is wrong, or has crossed a line. And then people can make up their own minds. We're also free to encourage people not to visit his site, or listen to his show, or appear on his program. After all, as he says, it's a free country, n'est ce pas?

Great site-I agree with Paul that
not all of the items on the Rense site
are crap but a great portion of it is.

Lewinsky Jewish? Yeah Jewish agent
probably not although the honey-trap
has probably been used since the beginning of time. Professor Peter Dale Scott has written about the
Lewinsky affair here. Not the names
and connections that keep popping up
over the years Luicanne Goldberg for instance.

For researching all those wierd "behind the scenes connections" Author Peter Levenda does a steller job. In Levenda's latest book Sinister Forces Book 2: A Warm Gun the chapter entitled A Vast, Right-Wing Conspiracy documents the Mellons extensive ties to Intelligence agencies.The bankroll for the anti-Clinton movement was of course Richard Mellon Scaife. It should also be mentioned that the Scaife family tree includes William Mellon Hitchcock, who ironically bankrolled Timothy Leary's Millbrook commune. Levenda speculates about William Mellon Hitchcock suspicious connection to the Profumo affair that took down Enlands secretary of State for War John Profumo.

Aargh! I am SO embarassed! Yes, I visit Rense several times weekly. Kinda like a train wreck, ya know? Can't keep the eyes off it. As for his political/socialogical/historical views ... well, it's a bit difficult to honor them with the term opinions, as opinions usually have SOME foundation in fact, and Rense seems to disregard reality on a most regular basis.

I go there for the odd bit of the odd, as it were. UFO sightings and the like, occasional postings concerning Mars water and life. Y' know, the little guy in the Roman helmet and skirt, saying "fetch me the planetary disentegratorrr". :-) The rest is perfectly ignorable. As, for example, Monica as an Iraeli agent! That's funny.

And yes, I am so embarrased. :-( And quite pleased that at least someone on this planet has the wherewithal to maintain such a blog as yours, which calls Rense out on his daily stupidities.

My daily stupidities are my beliefs that Mars has liquid surface water, in limited times places and amounts, and a belief in the probability - UNPROVEN - that Mars has today life of some sort, and may - MAY - have had, or received from elsewhere, civilization. That is definitely unproven, and very much open to argument.

But, anyway, thanks for the blog. I check in about once a week, to see if there's any new exposure of the RenseWorm.

So, ... Thanks! :-)

Nice blog Paul. I must confess, I listen to Rense every once in a while. (Lately three times a week.) Like Coast to Coast AM, I look at it all mostly like reading the Enquirer--not much reality but definately entertaining. Sometimes. My friends tell me I should just watch Jerry Springer.

The other night I thought Rense was being completely ridiculous when he labeled all those posting oppositional stuff to him at Wikipedia as pro-Zionist Terrorists. It was completely outrageous, as it seemed like some kind of irrational ad-hominem against those that disagree with him. I actually shut the show off and thought to myself, why am I listening to this.

Anyways, Rense has the right to say what he wishes and so do you. Keep up the great work. Another side to the story is always good.

Thank you so much for fighting the good fight.

The current wikipedia article is thinly veiled support for Mr. Rense. Using whitewash words, such as "populism" to express admiration for uneducated prejudice, this article is thinly veiled support.

I hope you have time to edit the article on him to better reflect the extreme nature of his opinions.

As you well know, he's more than a "popular talk show host with controversial opinions". He is a hateful menace.

Are we so sure that Rense isn't really spoofing himself with some of this balderdash? If not then he is definately in need of some serious psychotherapy :D

I check out rense.com headlines every day because I find it has value as a collection of interesting / fringe news articles from a variety of news media outlets. As for the opinion pieces, I usually skip those and yes they are often silly, unintelligent rants. www.globalresearch.ca is a site with considerable more journalistic rigor that offers a glimpse behind the propaganda of mass media.

I just happened upon Jeff Rense's website and then found yours when I googled for more information about Rense. Dude is one sick puppy! One of the things most entertaining about antisemites like Rense is that they can't admit they're antisemites; they portray themselves as trying to save the world from "international Jewry," real heroes, but they can't even admit to what they are because rational people recognize bigoted thinking as a sign of a screwed-up person. Also: What the hell is that on Rense's head? It looks like someone shaved an Afghan hound and glued the fur onto Rense's scalp. His hair alone is a sign of an unbalanced personality.
As for Monica Lewinsky being a Mossad "honey-pot": Why bother? Bill Clinton was notorious for sticking his dick in any woman who'd have him, and allegedly a couple that wouldn't. The Mossad could have found easier ways to blackmail him; a couple of taped conversations would do the trick (as it were) without the effort and possible failure of getting Monica -- who almost everyone recognized as unprofessional, immature, inexperienced, and emotionally vulnerable -- into place. Does anyone really think that the Clintons and the U.S. government didn't have the resources to dismantle a blackmail attempt? They could simply have stolen the blue dress and then exposed Mossad as having tried to blackmail the President with false evidence. One of the clearest signs of antisemitic insanity is their belief that all the Jews are in on it, that Jews all have one nefarious purpose idealogy (and a toll-free number where they can get their instructions and have their "International Jewry" pay stubs validated).
Another telltale sign of bigots? Lots of misspellings. They're none too bright, as your posters above prove. Thanks for running this site. It's a small but necessary corrective to a small and twisted man.

BTW, among the victims of the 7/7 bombings in London were Shahara Islam and Susan Levy. Those damn Western Australian zionists!

I'm just pleased to find that I'm not the only person in the world who sees these idiots for what they are-a herd of anti-semitic hate peddlers.

They're now accusing Barack obama of being an agent of the New World Order and/or the Anti-Christ.

This thread is not quite four years old but I love to drag up other peoples dead bodies. Such 'secular' and oh so obviously 'Patriotic' REAL Americans - unlike immigrants or those who think that a Congressional Veto is a constitutional error or perversion of justice - are somehow above shoddy journalism with 'modern' and 'mainstream' media monopolies and scandal mongering that you failed to note the Madoff scandal and the housing bubble and of course, let's keep the current administration under the cultural thumb, lest the Progressive Corporate Christian contingent not be able to use his RACE to their benefit in their quest to subvert the course of the country and for some of the same reasons that I don't doubt you and yours would consider a reason for avoiding his website to begin with.

rense is a hate site really when it comes down to it. It presents an extremely biased view of the world. I personally think it's a shallow individual exploiting other peoples pain and suffering for profit...wait, that is hateful isn't it?
Anyway, you'd have to be a bit of a dullard to give it much credence. Mostly the ufo pics from filers files are cool. The rest is shyte. lol just jew baiting and neo-con rants for the most part. A different kind of retarded from say "above top secret" though. Both sights are made by lazy minded folks for lazy minded folks.

The Washington Post reported in a front-page story on May 7th, 1997 that US intelligence had intercepted a conversation in which two Israeli officials had discussed the possibility of getting a confidential letter that then-Secretary of State Warren Christopher had written to Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat.

One of the Israelis had commented that they may get the letter from "Mega" - apparently a codename for an Israeli agent within the US government.
