Rense is playing games: I was leaving 1 November; he fired me on 19 October

Jim Fetzer

Jeff Rense has just published a deceitful email in which he denies that he fired me (and Scott Bennett and Michael Jay as well) by publishing three emails which I sent letting him know that we would probably be leaving on 1 November 2017, which he has edited by using his (snip)!

But he sacked me after the show on 19 October 2017 and now is claiming that he did not "fire me" but that I "quit"! Rense is the only show I have had where I had to pay for my show--and I was paid up to 1 November 2017. He edited out my mention of how much I had paid him [restored below].

Someone has just sent a link to this post of his, which is But unless 1 November comes before 19 October, he is obviously not telling the truth. One of us is a BIG TIME liar. Notice his allusion to "government disinformation assets", implying that I am one!

Here is his post followed by my previous emails to Jeff Rense. CHECK THE DATES:
Fetzer Is Not Being Truthful   
From Jeff Rense 10-23-17

I am sorry, but I can't abide liars…even if I do like some of them as people.  I did not fire Mr Fetzer.  He quit.  See his own three emails sent to me below.

Perhaps feeling emboldened by having quit, he then began to use my name later that day on his program on my network to promulgate his strange views of the Las Vegas terrorist massacre.  I have never used his name or referred to him in any way as having been deceived or that his unusual beliefs are wrong.  Everyone is entitled to his or her own viewpoints…even if a person is stark-raving mad or a government disinformation asset or suffering the onset of dementia.  That is not up to me to pass judgement on.

On my program and network, I hold high levels of professionalism and do not disparage other network hosts…in ANY fashion…especially by name.  Nor would I exploit another host, or a network owner, to promulgate my personal or political beliefs.  Unfortunately, Mr. Fetzer began using my name to bolster his aberrant views very shortly after he sent his resignation.

He used my name, on the air on my network on October 17, 18 and 19 as being someone who is essentially too dumb to see the Las Vegas massacre the way he does.

I sent him an email after he used my name on the 17th which included this...

"Rule One - You never diss...a colleague on the air. I would never use your name even though I disagree. It is just not done in professional journalism. I am getting email and it is not good."

And now he is using my name even more boisterously to attempt to portray himself as a 'victim' of the 'revenge' of Jeff Rense and trying to build more 'credibility' for his strange views.  As Mr. Fetzer, himself, would say, "That's ridiculous!"  I canceled Fetzer only AFTER the third consecutive day of his abuse of my name and reputation.  I made it abundantly clear to him not to go there but he refused to stop.

There is an OLD trick in intel disinformation...and that is to create a 'fight' online with someone of stature and then use the 'conflict' for easy publicity for the mind control and propaganda being marketed.  Mr. Fetzer's actions fit that intel PsyOp technique 100% perfectly and raise genuine questions about his true agenda.

Here is a 'victim' email from Mr. Fetzer to one of his fans…he also wrote similarly on his blog site...

"On 'The Raw Deal' (19 October 2017), after I had featured an audio/video professional who had confirmed that the sound of gunshots in Las Vegas was prerecorded and played over the concert's PA system and a second guest who has found that various of the alleged "victims" died in different locations of different causes, some on different dates, I was fired by Jeff Rense."  

No, I did not 'fire' Mr. Fetzer for his views, they are his own and none of my business. Mr. Fetzer quit, as you will read below.   Note the time and date stamps.   And since he is not telling the truth about this, it casts a dark cloud over everything else he claims.   Here below are Mr. Fetzer's resignations…

To: J Rense   Jeff,  Just to let you know that there's a good chance that  Scott and I will be moving to another network on 1  November. I should know more tomorrow. You have  been terrific, but we are ready to try something new.  Jim

To: J Rense   (snip)  I have even given you a heads-up that it looks as though we  (Scott and I) will be moving to another network.  
WOW! I missed that. My impression was that you and
Jay and others were explaining, using the audio
track, how you knew the shots were real. That's
the only point I addressed. I said several times
how much I admire and respect you. I mentioned
Mike Adams and you as holding the same view.
But I for the life of me cannot see anything
disrespectful. I have even given you a heads-up
that it looks as though we (Scott and I) will be
moving to another network. But if this is a way
of saying you don't want me back on your
[personal] show, then I accept that as your decision.
But I did NOT disrespect you!

To: J Rense   (snip) We just don't have the money.  I like you and regard you as a friend. You have been  a benefactor to me and Scott. We appreciate that. But  we want to try something different at this point in time.   Jim

Since I was not dissing you or Mike Adams or Robert

David Steele but only explaining why we had come to

differing conclusions about Las Vegas--which was an

obvious obligation of mine, intellectually, given that we

were poles apart (where someone even wrote to me

that they thought you were going to fire me because 

of our differences)--I needed to explain the variance.

My inference is that you had not listened to the show

but that someone had written to tell you I had dissed

you when I had not. That party wanted to divide us.

The bottom line for Scott and me is not rooted in any

(real or imaginary) differences with you but instead

the bottom line. I have had seven or eight radio shows

but this is the first time I have had to pay to be on the

air. My guess is that we have shelled out somewhere

around $15,000 since I came on board (including my

funding Scott's show). We just don't have the money.

I like you and regard you as a friend. You have been

a benefactor to me and Scott. We appreciate that. But

we want to try something different at this point in time. I

will let you know when we have the details ironed out.

We would both be glad to guest with you in the future.


After he continued that evening, for the third straight day, using my name and the network as a platform to prop up his unusual theories, I canceled him.  I will not be abused. I still had the courtesy to post his Thursday evening program which I didn't have to do.

The Raw Deal (Thursday, 19 October 2017)

End of the Line  
From Jeff Rense 10-19-17  

I just can't be abused any further.  I told you that under NO circumstances do professionals
use colleagues names in critical and negative ways on the air. I have never used your name 
even though I don't agree with you.  I have ALWAYS been a gentleman.  
Todd reports that you went right back at it today.  I don't know why you would do that.
It is bizarre and raising multiple unpleasant scenarios.  Todd hasn't been paid for 7 weeks 
for Bennett.  I can't orderTodd to continue carrying him.  It's time to go on to your new network 
and I wish you good luck.  

I would deeply appreciate you paying Todd what he has earned.  I don't make a PENNY
on this network and never have.  In fact, I lose money.  I only do it to try to help worthy people.  
However, when my name is used and abused, especially after I asked you to refrain,, I have to 
draw the line.  This has nothing to do with censorship or the First Amendment.  It is about an 
inexcusable personal and professional lack of ethics on a privately-operated radio platform.

It is as if you urinated in the middle of my living room while telling the world I am mentally
infirm because I don't believe in your fantastic screenplay.  You did wrong, Jim, and somewhere
down inside, you know you did.

I have said nothing with your name and your views on this tragedy.  Just suppose, for a moment,
that you are dead wrong.  Just suppose that all the eyewitnesses and the dead and wounded are 
real.  Can you imagine the harm you are doing to human souls?  Not to mention playing the drums 
for the inhuman evil that would use and abuse 22,000 people, traumatizing and scarring them for life?

People are asking me why I am hosting someone who is degrading me and 35 years of
utterly professional journalism?  I have interviewed and worked with Presidents and paupers
and I worked in Las Vegas as the news director and anchorman at the ABC TV station for
nearly three YEARS.  I know the town and I have sources…HIGH level of whom
formerly worked in the Mandalay.  I spoke to him the day after the massacre and he says
everyone has been told to shut up and say nothing.  

Friends at the Mandalay say, "EVERYONE knows there were multiple shooters but the lid
is slamming down because the slaughter is destroying business and shaking the confidence 
of the entire nation about trusting Las Vegas. The whole city is in danger of collapse."   
So, there will be NO talking about what happened from any agency, hospital, or gaming and 
entertainment venue in town.  The staff at all the major hotels were told that 'nothing happened' 
and to shut up or lose your job.

I did me very best to help you with early facts and proof but I failed...and you went right back
to your same sci-fi template.  Jim, one size does not fit all.  It seems like an irresistible drug to you.  
I tried...and I can sleep at night knowing I did my best to help you.  You're out on a micro thin 
limb and sawing as fast as you can.  Why? No one knows.  Are you working for the man?  
No one knows that, either.

So, we are concluded as of now.  There is no need to reply, I am too disappointed in you
to read anymore.  Again, I hope your new network is wonderful for you.

I have promised Todd he would be covered. He will be covered. You are blundering beyond belief. To imply that I am using divide-and-conquer tactics when I have devoted myself to exposing government corruption was beneath contempt. I was offering you a way out---you mistook a pre-recorded audio track for a real one. We could all make that kind of mistake. But to trash me--AND YOU THINK ANYONE MISSED WHO YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT BY NOT USING MY NAME?--is simply ridiculous. Cut me off, if you like. You are so unprofessional you did not even tell me, when I asked, if I was going to be on with you tonight. That's not being professional! That's being chickenshit. And be sure Todd sends me a rebate for this month.
The bottom line: As a professional courtesy, I had notified Jeff that Scott and I would probably be moving to another network on 1 November 2017. He fired me--he cancelled my show involuntarily, which is being fired--on 19 October 2017.

He touts the First Amendment before every show, but he doesn't practice it. Moreover, it was a program for which I had to pay--and I was current to 1 November. You figure it out. One of us is a humongous liar and that would not be me.
