Former Journalist Whistleblower Found Dead

For anyone skeptical about our deep state tactics of controlling the mainstream news media and filling it with lies, here is another great example. Attempting to expose them recently cost one German journalist his life.

On January 13 2017, German news journalist Dr. Udo Ulfkotte was found dead, just ten months after going public as a whistleblower, exposing how the CIA and German Intelligence (BND) bribe journalists to write pro-Western, pro-NATO, lies and propaganda.

Dr. Ulfkotte is a former editor for the German daily newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ). He worked as a journalist for 25 years, where he was taught to lie and betray and not tell the truth to the public. He said journalists all over the world are bribed to do it, but he could not bear it any longer when he saw how the intelligence agencies were attempting to ignite war between the United States and Russia.

In March 2016, he did an interview with Russia Today (RT), as shown below. He shared many examples of how western journalists are routinely forced to lie to the public.

“I’ve been a journalist for about 25 years, and I was educated to lie, to betray, and not to tell the truth to the public.

But seeing right now within the last months how the German and American media tries to bring war to the people in Europe, to bring war to Russia — this is a point of no return and I’m going to stand up and say it is not right what I have done in the past, to manipulate people, to make propaganda against Russia, and it is not right what my colleagues do and have done in the past because they are bribed to betray the people, not only in Germany, all over Europe.

I am very fearful of a new war in Europe, and I don’t like to have this situation again, because war is never coming from itself, there is always people who push for war, and this is not only politicians, it is journalists too.

We have betrayed our readers, just to push for war. I don’t want this anymore. I’m fed up with this propaganda. We live in a banana republic and not in a democratic country where we have press freedom.”

Ulfkotte said most corporate media journalists in the United States and Europe are “so-called non-official cover,” meaning that they work for an intelligence agency. “I think it is especially the case with British journalists, because they have a much closer relationship. It is especially the case with Israeli journalists. Of course with French journalists. It is the case for Australians, journalists from New Zealand, from Taiwan, well, there are many countries,” he said.

Among the stories Ulfkotte says he was ordered by the CIA to plant in his newspaper was a fake story that Libyan President Moammar Gaddafi was building poison gas factories in 2011.

Since losing his job as a journalist, Dr. Ulfkotte wrote a book called “Bought Journalists” (Gekaufte Journalisten), in which he explained in great detail the workings of the US and NATO’s propaganda campaign and how journalists who refuse to comply can lose their career. The book was published in German, but an English version is scheduled for release in May 2017, under the title “Journalists for Hire: How the CIA Buys the News.”

Dr. Ulfkotte said, “I wrote my new book, not to earn money, no, it will cause a lot of trouble for me.” The German news media was banned from mentioning his book. They reported his death at age 56 was due to heart failure.

Other mainstream news journalists turned whistleblowers include former CNN journalists Amber Lyon and Greg Hunter, as well as former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson.

The following video was recorded in March 2016.

This is more evidence that we are being inundated with fake news in order to influence us so that we will go along with agendas that are not in our best interest. It took extraordinarily courage to come forward knowing it could cost him his life. I hope that he is now with Jesus.

I am truly sorry for him…..and not to diminish his story, but in a loose comparison, to those who preach and teach the Bible/Pastors included in a liberal non challenging not invasive way, they are left alone by the devil. But preach the cross, the Blood, deliverance and the like; getting under the devil’s skin or affecting his lair, then you’ll see blow back. Just like this guy saw blow back when he entered into the real realm of exposing the darkness in a secular way……we too, if we are doing the job right of evangelism-Bible teaching, preaching and the true works of God will have a fair measure of resistance from the wicked one and his forces.

Herein Udo states that he renounced being a Muslim and became a born again Christian.

On a somewhat related topic, it was great to see that Ben Swann of a CBS affiliate (46) resurrect the #PizzaGate story a few days ago as shown in this video: I would suggest that Ben Swann needs our prayers for protection since he is seemingly the only reporter in the MSM that has had the courage to challenge the narrative that PizzaGate is in fact ‘fake news’. There has been an aggressive attempt to push this story under the rug by the MSM as shown by this irresponsible and highly suspect interview with Megyn Kelly of FOX News interviewing the ‘alleged’ victimized pizza shop owner, James Alefantis who, according to GQ Magazine, just happens to be one of the Top 50 most influential people in Washington, DC. The Daily Beast is another so called news source trying to discredit Ben Swann and everything PizzaGate ( Ex-Huffington Post journalist and freedom of the press advocate David Seaman adds his comments here: Since the PizzaGate story broke last November, YouTube, Twitter, Google, Reddit (, etc. have been working hard behind the scenes doing their part in trying to make this story go away. Fortunately, other social media alternatives advocating against censorship have gained significant traction in the process including ( , and As could be expected, Ben Swann’s segment on PizzaGate was pulled down from the CBS 46 website yesterday ( The good news is that by pulling the story down so quickly, it makes it even more obvious that this story runs much deeper and the luciferian globalist elite are fearful that the truth gets out. Some interesting dialogue relating to the ongoing saga of PizzaGate and the MSM can be found here: In these evil days, we must continue to pray for… Read more »

For those that may not be aware, the so called ‘shooter’ incident referenced in Megyn Kelly’s PizzaGate interview with James Alifantis above has been proven to be a complete hoax (go figure!). Here is just one link that provides some additional details:

I would imagine the CIA used their weapon of making it look like a heart attack, just like Andrew Breitbart. More people need to be aware that the CIA has a weapon that makes people look like they died of a heart attack. CIA needs to be exposed for the corrupt and evil bureaucracy that it is. Thank the Lord for Him doing that these days! PizzaGate, MK Ultra, Project Monarch, and Paperclip.

Hi There James and crew,
Earlier on this week all of our English newspapers on the front pages were full of Thersia Mays deal on what she wants and is going to do on a Brit exit deal at long last but it left me wondering why now pages after pages of this stuff printed in the British press.
I think it was a clever diversionary tacktic to take people’s mind away from what happened over the week end over Isreal on the devideing up of there land.
I cannot prove this is the case but it looks a bit strange to me why this Brit exit stuff as sundenly resurfaced again.
Any body any thoughts on this.
A lot of people over here don’t bother with papers as they tell me they are all full of dume and glume ,plus as my mum would say they are economical with the truth like politians.
This story above is so sad but I guess I should’nt be surprised at this.

Don’t know who took the $ out of their pockets —-but we as the body of Christ
paid and lost a brother—-but no greater love was shown that a man would
give his life for us ! I consider Udo a martyr —-what courage !
This was a choice of dying to himself—-and living in truth and love for
the good of many ! Thank you Dr. Ulfotte and give our thanks to our
American brother Andrew Brietbart !
Use them as blessed seed for the gospel !
