RMN is NOT a democracy.
It is a benevolent dictatorship and I am the

of today I am no longer a member of the Rumor Mill News forum, an
alternative news site. My posting name there was nFormedSources.
Sianews: RMN's Rayelan succumbs to her own mind control
Republish this Article
"I did NOT ban Fintan! Evidently
he has decided he no longer wants to be part of RMN and he has
chosen this lie to extricate himself! Rayelan
Well, for the record, here's how and when the dirty deed
On the 27th April RMN moved
to a new server < Check.
"Rumor Mill will go offline about 45 minutes
after this message is posted. That will be approximately midnight,
Eastern Daylight Time. We expect to be back online by daybreak
on America´s East Coast, but possibly several hours earlier
The 'server' move was actually flagged
by Rayelan < Check.
"we get hit with denial of service attacks
or other things that keep readers from knowing what we are posting
on RMN!! The change to a bigger, more secure server is just
part of what we have to do to maintain our presence on the web
and not get knocked off each time we make someone angry."
Using that 'server move' as cover, they withdrew my forum
I knew full what had happened, but just in case of an explicable
error, I wrote three emails to Zapper and Rayelan over the next
3 days, saying that I was locked out of the forum.
Eventually I got this reply from Rayelan:
" If you wish to begin a dialogue,
then please respond. If you don't, then you have my sincere
thanks for what you have provided to RMN, and consider this
email as good-bye."
Forget the dialog smokescreen bit. When they pulled my password
I was out. Goodbye.
Anyway, how exactly do you dialogue with this:
"Remember, RMN is NOT a democracy. It
is a benevolent dictatorship and I am the ruling dictator!"

So for the record, RMN used a server move to ban me. Didn't
have the guts to do it openly. or to own up today.
The latest move is a vaporware imaginary email Rayelan
has invented and now claims to have sent to me on Sunday:
" I just wanted to make sure that
you received my email. We have had our differences, but that's
because we are both strong minded Taureans. I was hoping that
we could have at least had a dialogue. Good luck with your work.
You are a fine writer and an excellent webmaster. sorry to have
lost you." --Rayelan
This entirely imaginary post-facto email was never
sent, or received. If you think it was, then there's this
bridge in Brooklyn I happen to own.....
already. I just detail this for the record. Time to move on.
More important work to be done.
Of late, Rayelan Allen
- the publisher of RMN has been on a spree of banning agents from
her forum. The stated reasons vary. But the real reason is that the
imperial system is under pressure because of events in Iraq, and anyway
Rumor Mill News was past its sell-by date as a vehicle for spinning
All this may be
news to you, although rumors about the Rumor Mill have been increasingly
ventilated on the Internet over the last year. If you ever visited
the site you may have seen a lot of interesting anti-establishment
material posted there. Could it be a disinfo site?
Let me give those unfamiliar with these affairs, an outline of the
disinformation tactics used to twist your perceptions of what is going
on in the world. A little background first.
To understand what is going on, you need to know the establishment's
tactics for dealing with the flood of information freely available
on the Internet. It boils down to this: "If you can't beat 'em,
Fact is, there is no way to stop information coming out on the Internet.
And they know it. The Net is too leaky, so any attempt to squelch
information would only draw attention to the very material in question.
And so they have invested heavily in the Internet. They own websites,
activist groups, political commentators, analysts, writers. The lot.
The same tactics used to penetrate mainstream media have been used
on alternative media --and some. A small army of online con artists
are deployed in this manner. It's a big budget enterprise which has
covered the Internet in pseudo alternative websites.
Here's their reasoning:
This way they can drown out legitimate investigation with a host of
false trails, dead ends and fabrication. And, their fingers are on
the delete button for really sensitive information.
Operating the websites themselves offers the advantage of being able
to highlight the tailings of rubbish and ignore the nuggets of dangerous
truth. Finally, throw in a generous dash of esoteric New Age mumbo-jumbo,
which muddies the waters still more; and before you know it, you can't
tell the wood from the trees.
Rumor Mill News used to have some outstanding wood. Now it's mostly
In the period immediately after 9/11, some talented researchers
and journalists were posting there. Many stories broke first on RMN.
I even broke some of them there myself. For independent journalists
like yours truly, RMN offered the chance to bring an alternative take
on world events to a large audience.
Small matter that there was a lot of disinformation packed around
the truly insightful material. Independent researchers were only too
capable of putting their views and arguing their corner against naysayers.
The forum thrived.
There was only one problem. The information coming out on RMN was
often truly groundbreaking. For a website committed to pumping out
disinformation, this was a significant drawback.
Then, during 2002, there were a number of key occasions when the forum
went off-line after sensitive information had been posted. The site
operators claimed on these occasions that hackers had done the damage.
It's a common claim.
But independent researchers are a cynical and wary bunch with a lot
of experience of detecting when they are on the receiving end of BS.
Many key individuals got so suspicious that they left. That was the
beginning of the end.
As 2002 rolled into
2003, a new tranche of posters arrived on the site and the emphasis
became much more new age and far less geopolitical.
The editorial spin intensified. The angle being pushed was that G.
W. Bush was a member of a "Faction 2" which was going to
save us all from NWO World Government. This view was increasingly
promoted by Rayelan Allen and others. Another tale to feature on RMN
was the infamous Nesara
alternative currencies scam.
But the rush to the exit was already on. More posters left. The traffic
to the website dropped. We were entering the final phase.
A new piece of software was added which allowed the site operators
to edit the forum listings so some posts would not appear. The listings
have many examples of hanging posts --where the first and main post
in a sequence is not listed --instead the third or fourth post is
shown. Click on that post and sure enough --you can see that there
were prior posts in the thread. But you only get to see them if you
stumble across them by accident. Furthermore some posts were quietly
Then a "Lounge" was added, to which only forum posters,
or "agents" had access. Regular visitors could not see the
content of the Lounge, where the flow of information to the main forum
was controlled. Some "agents" actually ask in the Lounge
for permission to post certain material. Yep, that's how low things
Why did I stick so long on RMN? Well, as I say, I mostly used it
a channel for getting the truth out. I just ignored the disinfo and
But, to continue at this point would be simply lending credibility
to the spin running on RMN. I'm not saying everyone who posts there
is knowingly spreading disinfo. But RMN is not a home for open investigative
reporting. Which is why they want me out. RMN is now a G. W. Bush
political spin site.
At least, with... say, Free Republic forum, what you see --rabid Republicanism--
is what you get. They got strong views there and that's just fine
with me. Actually, "Freepers" gave me my best unknown
tale of Bill Clinton and 9/11.
Free expression is fine. What bugs me is the plethora of subterfuge
agents who pretend to be what they are not. It's time to get a clearer
view of who is, and is not, on the side of truth.
John Kaminsky in his latest article "Shadow
of a hologram" hints at the need for the 9/11 movement to
root out pretenders. And Carol Valentine in her recent article "911
Lawsuit Is A Booby Trap" goes on record with grave doubts
about the direction of the Mariani 9/11 suit against the Bush administration.
Push is coming to shove. But, we need to proceed with care, because
there is a confusion agenda the establishment is trying to sow among
This article was not meant to make a comprehensive case against RMN.
It's not worth the effort. There are more important tasks. I am only
too happy to leave. And take this opportunity to thank the many readers
of the site who have corresponded with me. To get my news and analysis
articles, visit my website www.BreakForNews.com.
My material is unlikely to be on RMN.
So before inevitable allegations fly that I am a 'plant' trying to
subvert freedom of expression, here below are a few quotes and a summary
of the establishment lies I have been exposing over the last few years.
You decide what you believe.
After all, that's
what free speech is all about.
