I tried to follow De-Pat’s method of posting interesting headlines and articles. It didn’t work. As a scientist and a caver, if I see an interesting ‘rabbit hole’ I am instantly going to get side tracked. And what is the first thing I see? An intriguing clip of Mike Benz speaking about the Cabal’s strategy for neutralizing Alt Media. This the first I ever hear of Mike Benz.
Seems the conservative tree house jpg files just got deleted as I was writing this, just like Tony Heller’s did. Also the comment I just left on a 2 month old Mike Benz rumble video has been down voted. This is quite interesting given the subject of this article.

….My take-away from that is to be prepared. The exposing of the wrongs is just the first step. Then you have to be ready for the onslaught to come of smears, lies, firings, intimidation, and worse. It helps if people are united, as has happened with some boycotts. But on the whole we need to get on the same page and get stronger, IMO
And Mike Benz explains how the Cabal is working overtime to derail us.
I first want to say that the Cabal has been trying to limit free speech since the Morgans and the Military Industrial Complex bought control of the media in 1915.
I first noticed an online insurgency during the ‘Farm Wars’ over National Animal ID. It was strong enough that the USDA got THOUSANDS of HELL NO! comments on the Federal Register and it came up in the top 15 major concerns on change.org just before Obama was elected. It did not matter, Senator Burr crossed the aisle and co-sponsored the Food Safety Modernization Act that effectively handed control of American Farms to the World Trade Organization. It was passed during the lame-duck session. US Healthcare and the WHO are starting to follow a similar path.
After the Farm Wars, came the Tea Party. The Cabal deployed several methods to derail the movement.
In December 2009:
“…. new Rasmussen Reports “generic ballot” poll shows
“Democrats attracting 36% of the vote.
The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%,
and Republicans finish third at 18%.
Another 22% are undecided….”
Yet a scant few months later, in February 2010, Rasmussen Reports shows: Tea Party Candidate Now Comes In Last On Three-Way Generic Ballot
April 13, 2010: 34% Say They Or Someone Close To Them Part of Tea Party Movement
“Twenty-four percent (24%) of U.S. voters now say they consider themselves a part of the Tea Party movement,”
After the Blair-Rockefeller poll’s ‘finding’ that the Tea party was ‘racist’ via a series of questions starting with “Do you think it is the responsibility of the federal government to make sure that minorities…” and the MSM blasting that ‘News’ 24/7, it was down to “Just 8% Now Say They Are Tea Party Members“ by January 07, 2013.
ALSO the Tea Party Demonstrations WERE mostly NOT COVERED by the Fake News.
Washington Compost: ‘Tea party’ protesters gather in Washington to rally against taxes, spending
And when they became too large to ignore the Swamp sprang into action, with the Big Boys stepping in to deliver the final blows:
“Greedy super PACs drained the movement with endless pleas for money to support “conservative” candidates—while instead using the money to enrich themselves. I should know. I worked for one of them.” — PAUL H. JOSSEY
Not to mention the “conservative” candidates we did manage to elect, such as Ted Cruz and Rand Paul magically turned into RINOS!!!
HOWEVER this does not mean people changed from supporting the beliefs that the Tea Party represented. POTUS Trump showed that in an overwhelming way.
Now, as Mike Benz revealed on a recent Devolution Power Hour, the Cabal has come up with a new high powered way to STOMP the first Amendment into the ground. That was as far as I got looking at recent news before I headed down the rabbit hole.
Devolution Power Hour #181 Featuring Burning Bright and Just Human – Wed 10:30 PM ET –
On the Devolution Power Hour @ 1:38:30 they have a clip of Mike Benz, formerly of the US State Department under POTUS Trump. Benz starts with a comment on Russell Brand and then gets into how the Globalists are killing alternate Media.
Very Rough Transcript:
The UK government asking Twitter and Youtube to de-monetize Russell Brand… ” You have to understand how far back the OP goes… I wish you could have been there in 2017 when all the ‘consensus building architecture’ was happening.” The censorship industry is their term for themselves. After BREXIT and the 2016 election, independent news online became more powerful than the Mainstream news [Globalist Media Complex] at tilting elections and influencing public opinion. “.. the foreign policy establishments enforcement, and basically conspiracy arms, these are secret clandestine services… They got together and they did a consensus building process after the 2016 election, I have all the clips and source documents, more than I could possibly publish [he was going to write a book] where they formulated a plan. Where they looked at alternative news as an INDUSTRY, and an ecosystem. Rather than as individual emergent phenomenon… They said there are a relatively small number of these alternative news INSTITUTIONS [Not people] There are a huge number of alt news stories that they spit out, [BUT] if we kill them at the institutional level, that is MUCH EASIER than killing each and every story… the message was every where but there were relatively few emergent messengers… So they said, how do we kill the messengers? Because that was the easiest way to kill the message.
“Well the easiest way to do so is to look at alt news online as being an INDUSTRY WITH REVENUES and to cripple its capacity. Now this is an important term here… Called CAPACITY BUILDING. This is a concept in the nonprofit world which refers to the pumping up of financial resources, and personnel and technological abilities. But #1 is FINANCIAL RESOURCES.
“So for example when the State Department wants to run an operation in a foreign country, they CAPACITY BUILD [think George Soros Open Society $$$] all their Civil Society and private sector and news media outlets there. They pump them up so they are more useful as assets…
“They [the globalists] said, we need to CRIPPLE THE CAPACITY of the alt news ecosystem in order to basically kill the institutions. They did not have the idea of killing it completely, it is like counter insurgency work, this is how they describe it… you never quite kill the insurgent group that is challenging YOUR government… The winning end stage is when you simply reduce it to a SMALL SCATTERED INEFFECTIVE .. to MANAGEABLE burning embers.
“THEY CREATED AN INDUSTRY TO KILL AN INDUSTRY.
“This is the plan they set about, THEY CREATED A CENSORSHIP INDUSTRY, to kill the alt news industry… I use the term industry deliberately…What that means is they wanted to Capacity Build the institutions with the capabilities to produce online censorship and capacity to cripple the entities with the ability to produce online news… that is what this is all about. That is why there is this government- private sector civil society news media fact checking whole society network.
“THAT WHOLE THING WAS SETUP AFTER 2016 TO DO EXACTLY WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH RUSSELL BRAND.
“There are two ways they set about crippling the capacities of alternative news.
#1 by getting them censored on social media so their volume is turned way down. [Think of shadow banning and Wolfie] and fewer people can access their messages.
#2. The other is by killing their revenue on their own websites or platforms. [Think of the possibility that Sundance kicked off all discussion of Q to protect his revenue stream…]
“This is the invention of NEWS GUARD for example. The whole reason they target the ad revenue of websites and they are targeting Russell Brand’s … and Elon Musk’s ad revenue, because that is the easiest and most effective way to cripple their capacities. Russell Brand will still be around but he will not be able to hire people, have a production studio…he will no longer be an INDUSTRIAL SIZE media participant. The news will be dominated by those with CAPACITIES.
“They want to Up build Mainstream and the Censorship industry and kill the capacities of Alt News.
“IT IS ALL ABOUT CAPACITY TARGETING.…
So I went looking into Mike Benz and found this 2 month old video.
In this episode of the Patrick Henningsen Show on TNT Radio which aired on July 18, 2023, Patrick talks with former US State Dept. official and executive director of Foundation for Freedom Online, Mike Benz, about the rise of the public-private mass-censorship industry based in Washington DC and Silicon Valley, but whose tentacles now span internationally. Federal agencies like the DHS (and its censorship arm CISA), the FBI and others – have built a command and control communications pipeline directly into Big Tech, and deploy weaponized A.I. tools – where they can enact speech control operations and manipulate political outcomes, and even elections. We discuss its emergence following Crimea’s breakaway from Ukraine in 2014, and its proliferation in the aftermath of the 2016 election of Trump. All this and more.
INTERVIEW: Mike Benz – ‘Exposing Gov-Big Tech Censorship Industry’
This is a very, very good interview. If nothing else watch from 30 minutes to the end (39 minutes) It is about ‘Data Scrapping’ and the use of AI to do automated censorship. Before that he discusses the EU putting in place censorship laws that are coming out of NATO. Remember NATO started out with Hitler’s Chief of staff becoming NATO’s Chief of staff: Nazi war criminals became high ranking commanders in NATO after WW2
The Patrick Henningsen Show has 2.31K followers but this video only had 946 views and 7 likes. HOWEVER, despite this low volume and being 2 months old, my comment was down voted in less than 2 hours. Sure looks like Rumble has an AI BOT infestation!

Exactly why Russell Brand got cancelled.
“The pandemic created at least 40 new Big Pharma billionaires; pharmaceutical corporations like Moderna and Pfizer made $1,000 in profit every second from the Covid-19 vaccines; more than two-thirds of Congress received campaign funding from pharmaceutical companies in the 2020 election; Pfizer Chairman Albert Bourla told Time magazine in July 202[?] that his company was developing a Covid vaccine for the good of humanity, not for money, and of course Pfizer made a $100 billion dollars in profit in 2022.”
Maher, desperately trying to get a word in edgewise on his own show, reminded Brand that “a lot of people would be dead without the vaccine.”
To which Brand snapped back: “If you have an economic system in which pharmaceutical companies benefit hugely from medical emergencies, where the military industrial complex benefits from war, where energy companies benefit from energy crisis, you are going to generate states of permanent crisis where the interests of ordinary people separate from the interests of the elite.”
The entire article is worth a read, imo.
