Many of these questions I have been asked at some point or another.
Why is copy-paste disabled?
Because, after it was done in early 2017, it resulted in a near 100% reduction of people wholesale copy-pasting articles to their own black-purple chemtrail-pushing conspiracy blogs. This, in turn, greatly lessened the amount of time needed filing DMCA take-down orders and contacting hosting platforms. The main issue there, of course, was that Google rewarded said-black-purple copy-paste blogs with vastly higher artifical domain ranks, if only indirectly because since 2015 it has been heavily censoring ISGP. Removing the duplicate content actually tripled traffic to this site in a manner of weeks.
These days, all that doesn't matter anymore, because since the Trump years Google near 100% downranks anything "non authoritative", shamelessly and with political and judicial support giving the whole world a taste of the much-touted "internet freedom". Nevertheless it remains annoying to see old, outdated versions of your articles, sometimes 20 years old, littering some of the less-censored search engines.
So, that's why.
How do I print your web pages properly? Or efficiently?
Sorry for the disabling of copy-paste, but I can't change that. You are going to have to find your own ways to copy-paste.
If you want to print as efficiently as possible, try a small print scale, 2 pages/columns per page, minimal margins, and "simplified" formatting. If you want print "proper", you probably have to increase the scaling a bit in the print preview.
How do I print page numbers only?
You've got to print to PDF from the browser, without including any headers or footers, and then add page numbers with a PDF editor.
One very peculiar headache is that all web browsers have disabled the ability to print page numbers only. In 2022 even (a Google-financed) Firefox browser removed this option. So now all you can to is print to PDF, without including any headers or footers, and then use a PDF editor to insert page numbers.
For the time being, Firefox's "page numbers only" option can still be activated manually by:
- typing "about:config" in the url bar;
- followed by typing "print.show_page_setup_menu";
- and double clicking to enable it from "false" to "true".
Now the old "Print Setup" option appears in the browser.
The print preview is not displaying the page properly!
Sometimes the ISGP page is pushed to the right in print preview, because the left column is not removed for some reason. Opening the print preview screen on another page and going back after that, often fixes the problem. If not, try restarting the browser or try to print in another browser. Ind the end I've always seen the issue disappear. Unfortunatly, I have no clue what causes it.
^^Personal and content-related What country are you from?
The Netherlands. You know, that one-time "horribly" liberal country directly to the east of England, across a tiny little pond called the North Sea. No, it's not a province of Germany... you silly Americans. Just kidding, of course. I love Americans. They're 50 percent of the visitors to this site. Used to be 70 percent, but mainland Europe has been catching up since the late 2000s. Granted, I have also been writing more and more about European "intrigue".
As for the average spread of visitors to ISGP:
It appears conspiracy research is a luxury one primarily finds in the first world.
Who inspired you?
No one. Being from Europe, political conspiracy never was on my mind. Traditionally that has been an American phenomenon, where, for example, you've had a Christian conservative John Birch Society opposing the dominant liberal establishment. Something like that never existed in the liberal-socialist paradises of North-Western Europe, where things as strong labor unions, decent social security and minimum wages, low-cost medicare, gun control, abortion, science over religion, global warming measures and environmentalism have been an uncontroversial norm throughout 20th and early 21st century. In fact, it really never mattered much whether the socialists, labour, greens, liberals, or Christian-Democrats were in power. These fundamentals were hardly touched.
In my case, I developed questions in the early 2000s - right when the state of the world and Dutch society were rapidly changing - simply by watching the news. Watching the 9/11 event of 2001 unfold live, and noticing how certain discussions were permanently banned from the news within minutes, made me extremely suspicious about the existence of any type of independent media.
In 2002, over here in the Netherlands, the demonization of the wildly popular anti-immigration "populist" Pim Fortuyn by the entirety of the media and all political parties, similarly blew me away. As a cherry on the cake, Fortuyn ended up being assassinated a week before the election. The "demonization thing" was brought up for some time, but quickly forgotten. Meanwhile, not a single, logical question of a possible government conspiracy was brought up.
The initiation of the highly irrational "War on Terror" and the clearly very desperate attempts of the Bush administration to "prove" that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, all in the 2001-2003 period, was a phenomenon to behold of course. More important to me actually, in mid 2003, was that my mind had trouble comprehending how Dutch government guidelines on healthy eating habits were lobbing cookies, cake and meat all in the same "bad" saturated fat category. No nuances, nothing.
The saturated fat question made me research online a bit and soon got me used to the idea that dominant ideas in society may not be all that accurate. In early 2004, as an extension of this realization and "just to be sure", I went to check online if anyone had similar questions about 9/11 as I did. That was it. There was no going back at that point.
All this is discussed in more detail in the opening of ISGP's Alex Jones of Infowars Admits to CIA and "Army Special Forces" Family, because, as manipulative and disinformative his entire body of work is, he did inspire me to gather facts and use them to get in people's faces and shut them down.
As for the writing itself, the only inspiration that I have had from the start is the structure, quality and relentless nature of the songs of old Metallica. To me, every article is basically another song. I'm not exactly a poet, especially not in English, but articles need to be perfect in the sense that they have to be well-sourced be-all, end-alls: every bit of relevant information structured and summarized on one page. Of myself, I expect nothing less than revolutionary, beautiful, timeless works of absolute, non-stop destruction.
What is your motivation?
Initially ISGP was put together simply out of curiosity on how the world works, and trying to make a few humble contributions while working together with others. Trying to make a difference in a much bigger way soon became just as dominant a reason, primarily after realizing the enormity of the forces spreading nothing but conspiracy disinformation day in, day out. Forums, comment sections of websites, the websites themselves, street activism - everything is corrupted.
To this day, ISGP's purpose is to function as a "safe harbor" for people interested in anything conspiracy-related. You can come here and A) not be lied to; and B) be provided with solid foundations in terms of facts, studies and sources on almost anything controversial. What you want to do with that information, that's up to you.
Actually, I've decided to stop many times, only to observe the manipulation in the mainstream news and alternative outlets, and be pulled right back in. Because, if ISGP doesn't do it - properly, honestly, independently - apparently no one will. It has been said that people get the government they deserve, but with ISGP around, at least potential activists can get up to speed in weeks - part time - instead of one or two decades of full-time research. If you don't know the precise facts, and you don't know what you're up against, you can't even begin to make a change.
How much time did you put in?
About 40,000 hours from 2004 to 2024, which is an average of about 5 hours a day, every day, 365 days a year, for over years. Some years have been much more active than others.
Are you religious?
These days I don't hear much anymore from America's Christian Right. But no, having grown up in the big city, I'm not religious. In fact, growing up I assumed Christianity was virtually dead. I almost never met anyone who was "religious". Then again, I also never met anyone who behaves like the "new atheism" pundits you hear more and more of these days. Most people I know belong to the "I don't know", "maybe", or "probably" church.
As for myself, I believe in intelligent design, but... not at the expense of Darwin's theory of evolution. What's funny is that the more I studied evolution--the formation of the universe, galaxies, stars, solar systems, planets, and finally, life--the more I have to conclude that physical evolution is incredibly, unbelievably, breathtakingly, mindblowingly intelligent. The theory of evolution is not even the slightest bit incompatible with the existence of an infinitely creative God (force)--or whatever one chooses to call it.
Yes, we should find absolute, irrifutable proof before claiming such a thing as fact. And science absolutely plays an important role in the world. But nothing wrong with having a little faith either. After all, if we know everything, what would be the purpose of the game at that point?
So what does that make me? I don't know. A spiritual Darwinist? Yes, call me a spritual Darwinist.
What are your political views?
I don't care about day-to-day politics. Never will. There's no honesty to be found here. I also never voted. At various times I've casually, in my own mind, belonged to the "green-right", the "imperial humanists" and & quot;socialist realpolitikers", all categories that don't seem to be represented in politics.
Fact is, judging by the international outburst of "populism" all over the West and polls gathered and corrected by ISGP on Third World immigration, this clearly goes for a lot of people. The fact that the West doesn't have a (pro-Europe if possible) socialist-liberal party that also is staunchly anti-Third World immigration (not based on mere "fear", but based on ethnic crime, IQ data and on basic common sense) alone demonstrates that the process of democratic voting in the West is little more than stage play. More is written about this in ISGP's article $150 Billion in Foundation Funds Attacking Trump and Pushing Third World Immigration.
As much as I dislike ordinary politics (while knowing an awful lot of political history), studying geopolitical strategy and history has never been a problem. In fact, for some strange reason it's the only thing I can literally do 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. And that's why ISGP has become what it is. Wouldn't do any of this studying though, if it didn't have the purpose of bringing out important information.
What is your opinion on Wikileaks and Edward Snowden?
I've found some of the released Wikileaks documents very useful, in my case a number of cables about Uzbekistan dictator Islam Karimov and about prominent Russians allied with the Solntsevskaya mafia. Julian Assange's October 23, 2014 article entitled 'Assange: Google Is Not What It Seems' is incredibly revealing. I even noticed Wikileaks spread "my" Dutroux X-Dossiers summary file at one point. Fact is, I haven't seen any releases from Wikileaks that I would label as criminal. Wikileaks simply exposes corruption, war crimes, and things along those lines.
That having been said, Wikileaks, as well as Edward Snowden, have received backing from major billionaire "liberal CIA" NGOs as Rockefeller, Ford, Soros and others. Simple as it may seem due to ISGP's presented work, it actually took years to figure out all kinds of different pieces of evidence.
These ties do make me wonder about a statement Julian Assange made in a July 19, 2010 Belfast Telegraph article entitled 'Wanted by the CIA: Julian Assange'
"I'm constantly annoyed that people are distracted by false conspiracies such as 9/11, when all around we provide evidence of real conspiracies, for war or mass financial fraud."
Apart from Third World immigration, 9/11 is the biggest and most obvious conspiracy of all time. It's very clear that aspects of that event are being kept hidden. Most of what remains is just party politics.
So, who are "they"? Any names?
Sure, this site has got nothing but names. ISGP specifically created its Superclass Index for that, which came into existence in a surprisingly scientific manner after more than a decade of research. Combine this with ISGP's three-establishment model and boxes model for western politics, an analysis of one-and-a-half-century of presidential administrations, as well as in-depth studies of key conspiracies as JFK and 9/11, and readers have all the keys to figure out who has been behind the major conspiracies of the past century, whether tied to the U.S., Europe, or Israel. Russia has been addressed separately. Russian politics is far less organized, there is much less freedom, and therefore is harder to understand.
Generally the names to be found behind major conspiracies simply are presidents, national security advisors, secretaries of state, CIA directors and to an extent defense secretaries. These are crucial decision-making and executive positions which any establishment consisting of think tank, political, corporate, banking and intelligence elites will try maneuver its most trusted members into. As demonstarted in articles as 'Managed Democracy', until their respective deaths in 2017 and 2023, David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger were at the absolute core this ever-expanding globalist movement, and also were decades-long close firends of CIA covert operations veterans and directors tied to various key conspiracies. There's no powerful, secret group outside of this, so...
What you think is credible and not credible when it comes to conspiracies?
This information is moved to a separate article.
What came first? Wikipedia or ISGP?
Often people forget the absolutely gigantic resources we have available in the modern world. If a particular group has been mentioned briefly in three books and four newspaper articles worldwide in the past 50 years, there's a good change today that all these sources are listed in a Wikipedia entry on this group - giving off the impression that there never was any secret in the first place.
Fact is, in order for a particular group to be known, it generally has to be discussed thousands of times in newspapers, the media, and preferably, in school books. For example, Bilderberg has been mentioned many hundreds of times in English language newspapers from the 1970s to the late 1990s, but at least in Europe virtually nobody had heard of it - let alone know any details - until broadband internet came along. And even in this case we only know about it because of McCarthyite John Birch-type propaganda that stimulated discussion. Compare this to information on Le Cercle or the 1001 Club, which have literally been discussed 1,000 times less than Bilderberg--yet today they still have Wikipedia entries with some basic information.
The fact is, when ISGP first wrote about Le Cercle, the 1001 Club and the Pilgrims Society, entries on Wikipedia about these societies did not exist. In each case these were added weeks after the ISGP articles had been uploaded and widely read. Virtually no other information existed on these groups at the time.
Wikipedia's Sun Valley entry was created years after ISGP had identified 100 plus visitors and wrote an article about the group.
Wikipedia's JASON Group article did exist, but was far from complete. At least half of the members were taken from ISGP. In a later stage references to ISGP were removed, giving the impression that the JASON Group has always been straightforward about its membership. Looking at the way the JASONs treated me after ISGP's article on the group, should tell anyone that the JASONs were forced out into the open due to the internet.
Details about the Bohemian Grove camps and the visitors also came from ISGP. Although membership lists have leaked in recent years, back in 2005/2006 none were in the public domain and names were scattered all over the place.
ISGP has been responsible for other information on Wikipedia. Often ISGP was removed as a source, such as with the 1001 Club, despite being the first to have uploaded photocopies of membership lists.
Anno 2014 Wikipedia still didn't have a page on the American Security Council; only the American Security Council Foundation. Almost no members were mentioned, while ISGP already in 2012 published a fully-sourced extensive membership list with a just as extensive article about the history of both groups.
In 2023 ISGP demonstrated that Wikipedia's article on the International Chamber of Commerce almost entirely left out the group's history, including those aspects involving Hitler, Mussolini and all the supportive businessmen around them.
Are you supported by other researchers?
I received support from a limited number of professional investigators and journalists who provided me with crucial documents. Other material was provided by ordinary persons without websites or any kind of name for themselves.
However, from conspiracy circles? Nope. Nothing. I received the most support when I just started out, but each year it faded more and more. But these days nobody links to the site, making it next to impossible to rise in Google's rankings and get a lot of exposure. What I do get is harressment from the most bizarre people every week and since 2014, apparently because nothing else has worked, regular Google rank penalties every couple of months. Each time my visits drop overnight and permanently by 15 to 25% - and not seldom after having achieved a breakthrough in viewership due to all kinds of measures. Guess this type of suppression is a bit more stealthy than haressment by phone, email, or mail - which I experienced in the early years - but I'm definitely going to make work of this issue in the future.
I'll leave the reader with remarks made in January 2017 by a reader of MoonofAlabama.com, as it hits the nail on the head:
"I found this site, ISGP, quite a few years back, thanks to a link from wikipedia, of all the sites.
It was [already] at the time a very deep, very well researched and linked, annotated investigation on the secret societies that have always plagued world's politics at the top.
"I was struck and still am by never been able to find any link at all, all over the whole web, to ISGP; strange, and maybe a strong indication of the danger that site represents for quite a lot of people of power.
"But I was introducing it related to the war going on at the top of US power, also related to Trump, the hostility he's served with, hostility that does not seem to fade. ...
"Very strange that ISGP is never, or very close to never being linked, especially in the alternative media, the independent, antagonist sites, I never found any mention of it.
"It looks the site really scares a few people."
Will key conspiracies ever get exposed?
Never say never, but for the moment it doesn't look like conspiracies as the JFK assassination and 9/11 ever will. My only realization over the years that is more shocking than the level of disinformation and propaganda coming from the top layer of our society, is people's inability to oppose this pressure with critical thinking, independent study, organizing protests and setting up resistance groups - the highly-educated ones even less than their less-educated fellow citizens. Looking at movies and miniseries, one gets the impression people are obsessed with fighting corrupt authorities and "doing what's right", no matter what the costs are. Reality, however, is totally different.
What do you get out of doing this?
Let me see:
- Education (official): no.
- Career: no.
- Money: no.
- Status and respect: no.
- Sex: no.
- Friends: no.
- Family and children: no.
- Support network: no.
- Sports/hobbies: no. Time, money, and friendships are all going to be issues.
- Peace of mind: no.
Even the feeling of "doing what has to be done" and "making the world a better place" has been undermined a bit, because it can be hard to see how the world deserves the presented information at the moment. If someone finds out a piece of technology that makes life easier, at least that person will be financially compensated by the masses, whether these masses care about the struggle or not. With money, of course, comes status, and from there everything comes in too. With conspiracy research, for the time being, that absolutely is not the case. Realistically, conspiracy research and activism is supposed to be a team effort. Nobody should solve all the mysteries of the world by themselves. That is just weird. But there is no team. It's just me, screaming into the abyss. The only alliances possible have been with an endless stream of government or superclass agents looking to obstruct, disinform, or mentally destabilize.
There are literally tens of thousands of social justice warriors, but all of them ultimately are on the payroll of foundations as Soros, Ford, Gates and Rockefeller: "liberal CIA". On the right, they are all tied to the CIA or NGOs financed by foundations as Bradley and Scaife: "conservative CIA". Apart from that, there are thousands of superficial conspiracy websites and blogs. None of them have shown any serious, genuine interest in ISGP. And I don't see anything changing anytime soon.
In no small part because you have to do it by yourself, doing proper conspiracy research will suck all your time in ways you can't even imagine: there is no time on top of not having any time - decade after decade. The only rewards left standing almost belong in the "hobby" category: experiencing mystery, and the fulfillment of a need for deeper and unique insight. The truth, if you will. Having a sense of purpose and duty, and building character at mach 10 intensity, might be other benefits. And to be fair, you get to experience some otherworldly mental adventure. Unfortunately mostly in solitude, but adventure nevertheless. I can never be absolutely certain what I'm going to be researching the next day and what additional mind blowing facts I'm going to run into.
Overall it seems like a bad deal. And it is. But once truth gets thrown in as a reward, it might just trumps everything. So bring it on.
To expand a bit, this list quickly explains why there is so much apathy among the masses with regard to true conspiracy: there is just no reward. And when none of these rewards are there, it appears people simply do not take action, especially not when these problems are partly the result of stigmatization, ridicule, and ostracization. Gaining personal insight and "doing what's right" simply aren't enough of a motivation to go through this emotional pain. To illustrate, consider these example scenarios:
- Even the most lowly conspiracy disinformer gets support from his "peers". He can go to conferences, talk to the "big boys", get their respect, and with a little effort he can easily get a few publications and appear on a few podcasts. The author is a perfect example: his first few articles were immediately embraced by Rense.com and Alex Jones' employees. No matter how disfunctional, this acceptance brings in status and respect, a support network, possibly friends, and potentially opens other doors as well.
- An upcoming MMA fighter is often completely broke most of the time. His mainstream education and career prospects will suffer. But... he will still be rewarded with entertainment, status, friendships, health (muscles, cardio), love and sex by a good portion of society, with major career prospects not entirely ruled out.
- Similarly, soldiers face serious risks, but most largely get to experience adventure, male bonding (lifelong friends), strong bodies, career prospects, a bit of money, status, sex and literally everything else. In the U.S. in particular, they can tattoo themselves, go to the gun range, shoot up steroids, get some pussy, and be labeled "heroes" by every politician and media outlet until the day they die - without having done anything special apart from getting through a fitness test and scrubbing some decks.
- A knight who goes out to the dragon's lair to save the princess, might think he does so for totally altrustic reasons because he might die and there is no money involved. But... in reality at the very least health (muscles, cardio), status and sex are clearly in view if the knight succeeds - possibly a lot more.
- Resistance fighters during World War II took a huge chance, but there was a clear enemy that posed a clear problem. As a result, there were many supporters, it was socially acceptable to resist, and tons of status (feeling manly, feeling important, etc.) was to be acquired, especially in case the war was won. Even the persons who privately hid Jews in their basement, at least gained the respect, love and status of their family and the persons they hid. They also didn't have to deal with psychological warfare, considering few took German propaganda serious, which in addition was countered by organized resistance radio stations.
The point is, with almost any "heroic" thing there always is something to be gained outside of "doing the right thing". However, conspiracy research is set up in such a way that it will make you feel like those Jews in pre-World War II Germany that never received any help, while being told day and night through the establishment media: "You're nothing, you're inferior, a parasite, a problem - just go away and die!" (many Jews were deeply ashamed of simply being Jews).
In some ways, with conspiracy research the situation is even worse, because most Jews knew other Jews, often lots of them, so they were able to bounce this propaganda off against one another: "What do you think? Does this make sense?" You still had strength in numbers among your own kind. With me, for example, I'm the only one in my family and wider circle who has any interest in conspiracy, and on top of that pretty much knows more than anybody else alive. But even for people that know less, it's tough to find likeminded individuals to compare your ideas to. Certainly internet forums are all penetrated by the security services, so it's going to be tough to meet anyone this way, certainly anyone you can fully trust. In other words... you are likely to be completely alone. And if you openly speak the truth of your life to everyone around you, instead of just saying what they want to hear, you'd better be prepared to feel like a Jew in Nazi Germany.
There's nothing new to this aspect of psychological science. It's probably as old as human civilization. Western mind control research in part was simply set up to find out how to pressure the massess into submission without the use of more hands-on North Korean peer pressure (one reported method apparently involved putting a person in a house with 6 others who rewarded "good" behavior with friendship and attention, and "bad" behavior with ridicule and ostrization). Conspiracy research is set up to take everything from you. The deeper you go, the more time you spend, the more this will be true.
It's the same with criticizing Third World immigration. Most people simply are too afraid to speak out because of media intimidation and often will start to censor their friends and family members, because "you can't do anything about it", "so just let it go" and "don't be negative". The worst of them will make the propaganda their own and start policing their own friends and family.
I can't put my finger on it fully, but the human race does have a number of serious psychological flaws. Biologically we're too unconcerned about bigger issues, too easily intimated, too dependent on the opinion of peers, too scared to be wrong, and too submissive to authority under all the wrong circumstances. The middle class needs to learn to organize at the local level, without the financing and pushing of elites. And it needs to get educated on the use of psychological warfare throughout history. It probably won't learn any of that until several more massive crises. And thus, conspiracies most likely will remain hidden for the time being.
What writers do you support?
Hmmm, let me think. George Seldes' 1943 book Facts and Fascism should be required reading for every high school student internationally. Seldes also came up with one of the cleverest and most telling book titles ever: Tell the Truth and Run. He showed how journalism ought to be: to the point, hard hitting and instead of being "objective", with enormous bias towards rational, moral thinking.
Has anything strange happened?
Yes, phone, email, mail and domain anomalies, Google censorship, disappearing articles, and strange people "turning" and attaching themselves to my family. These things are listed in a specific article.
I want to promote ISGP. Any suggestions how?
Sure. I've made a list of suggestions that can be found here (this page is not always up).
