How to Destroy People the Health Mangler Way!

Disclaimer: The following is "satire" and I do not actually support doing it - AT ALL!!

UNLESS, you are doing it to a large multinational pharmaceutical company, the FDA or AMA, etc...

Let's have some fun with our competition, shall we?

The last thing con men want is to have competition. So the most effective thing you can all do is publicize the truth, as you are able to twist it, about whoever you don't like competing with by linking to negative articles that you write using their name. That way, anybody searching for your competition on Google will be likely to find this article.

Here's how you do that: First write a really negative, hateful, violence inspiring article about your competition (make sure they are smaller than you). Then just copy and paste the HTML code below onto your website linking to your article (do not tip them off beforehand because you don't want them to be able to rectify any problems or prepare before you can put your plan into action - you are not here to help your competition!):

<a href="Place link to article here">"Put the name of your competition here" is a con man (or fraud, pirate, etc., whatever works to assassinate their character)</a>

Place that on your website or just link to this article using the name of your competition. If you have a really large mailing list or a highly visited web site you're all set. Just get all your followers to follow these instructions (they won't ask many questions if you've done your con right and convinced them you are a reincarnation of Mother Theresa).

The next thing you can do is to get your followers to start slamming your competition with emails and phone calls. Their contact information is usually listed in their domain registration records, although it's worth mentioning these could all be fake so you may end up hurting innocent people, but hey that's how it goes. In fact, the whole name of your competition might be fictitious. Most people will not look this up so it's best to give it to them in the negative article that you've written. That way, any old psycho on the internet can also get in on the fun.

Yes! Google can be fun in ways you didn't even realize.

You will also want to publish their personal home address if you can get it. This way there might even be some physical violence thrown in for good measure. At the least, your competition is likely to get get death threats from a few of your more mentally unstable followers (and being that you are a con man, you'll have a few - just always pretend you don't even think that). The best way to destroy people is to get them to do it to themselves or encourage someone else to do it so that your hands are clean in the end because you have plausible deniability.

If nothing else this will send a very strong message to anyone else thinking they might want to start messing in your claimed area of expertise and dare compete with you. We are not here to cooperate, we are here to compete!

Oh, it's a really good idea to follow this up with a few articles praising yourself and telling the world what an awesome humanitarian you are. You don't even have to pretend that someone else is writing them, your conned audience will believe whatever you have to say about yourself - no questions! After awhile your zombie followers won't even notice that you seem to be your own greatest fan and nobody else is writing about how great you are as much as you are yourself. Though, after awhile, the zombies will start following your lead and begin writing great things about you too. They can't help themselves. They follow. That's what they do.

BTW, Be sure that you make it very difficult for anyone to find or contact you. It's best, if you can do it, to have a home out of the country in case you need to suddenly flee for some reason. A third world country is best so that you can even create the illusion that you are traveling the globe helping the poor. You can even buy land cheap and then resell it for a HUGE profit to stupid gringos from America.

Life is good when you don't have to care about all people. Just yourself.

Mike Adams' Virtual Stoning of Jason Cairns

Warning! This, like all malicious endeavors, may backfire on you.

Mike Adams' Virtual Stoning of Jason Cairns

The following is simply all my own opinions and observations. I have no proof of anything regarding this situation either way. I'm just writing about it and speculating, as usual.

I'm still upset for what Mike Adams of has done to Jason Cairns of and though I'm sure I'll let it go soon, I'm not quite ready to do so just yet. Mike doesn't seem to be ready to let go of anything either.

I know a lot of people think that this should just go away and blue skies and rainbows should appear and we should all dance into the sunset. I'm sorry but I do not believe in putting my head in the sand. Things do not go away by ignoring them. It just gives unscrupulous people a chance to do their thing with minimal interference. If you are a spiritual person, a "The Secret" type of person, then maybe you are suppose to take that spiritual strength that your building and use it to tackle the reality that is in front of you instead of burying your nose in your navel and pretending nothing but good exists. That's a trap that appears to be the easy way out, but it's not. If you allow something the opportunity to get worse because you ignore it then it probably will get worse. Look at the state of America today. Your attention just may be the bucket of water that puts out a fire that would otherwise burn out of control.

Why do I care so much?

The Natural Health movement has enough problems to tackle without people like Mike Adams coming along and making it a big ego trip and acting like they have exclusive rights to a subject. Mike scours the ALREADY WRITTEN NEWS, changes the words around and acts like he made a discovery. If you want to get the news that Mike puts out a day before he does, just put in some keywords to Google news and let the internet bring it to you, then watch how it shows up on within the next few days slightly rewritten to Mike's style. contains very little original news people. Shall we do some comparison and then accuse Mike Adams of plagiarizing the AP, Reuters, etc...?

Gary Null has done the same thing and I've written about him also here and here. It's not about Mike Adams or Gary Null. They have not revealed any previously undiscovered news. They do not have exclusive rights to take the news and make it theirs. People like this just end up nullifying (no pun intended, but it works) all the good work done by making it more and more about themselves than about the mission.

I don't like being upset with these big players that are supposedly on the same side that I'm on. But fat headed egos are what has gotten this world into so much trouble already and WE DON'T NEED ANYMORE. I find these situations to be very upsetting, frustrating and sad. Why do they have to act this way?

I also care because if it can happen to Jason, it can happen to me or you or anyone else who is defenseless against such wrath. If someone with the readership and influence that Mike Adams of NaturalNews has can simply decide that they suspect someone of doing something they don't like and can then direct their influence over their readership to carry out their wishes against that person, who will then do it without much question, then that's pretty scary. Just because some people are able to attain power and/or influence does not mean they deserve to have it or that they will not abuse it. That should be pretty obvious to just about anyone by now. And guess what? Regardless of what he thinks of himself, Mike Adams is just a human being subject to the same flaws as the rest of us. Most of us are just more willing to admit it.

Is it really OK to endanger another persons life, put them through hell and shred their budding reputation as a fellow natural health advocate for something so trivial? I say trivial because I do not believe that Jason Cairns was being consciously malicious - unlike Mike Adams has been. Mike Adams instigated the violence by writing the article encouraging people to harass Jason as well as publishing Jason's personal info. Jason's info could, admittedly, be found on the web if you know where to look, so it was already out there. But, the phone number was not correct and another innocent person is paying for that. Mike made it very easy by handing it out. Most people would not have taken the time to search out Jason's personal info on their own. Of course none of those people would have done anything if Mike Adams hadn't directly encouraged them to act.

For all you people who followed Mr. Adams orders out of sheer blind loyalty, you are just a bunch of mindless sheep following yet another authority figure so you don't have to use your own freaking brains for anything. You will eventually end up being a target of people like Mike Adams. Mike is well aware that 70 Percent of People will Torture Others if Ordered. Even if Jason did everything Mike is accusing him of, becoming a vigilante mob is, in my opinion, not the most enlightened answer to the situation.

I don't think it's right that Mike Adams can do what he did to Jason Cairns on the World Wide Web and then, when he achieves his objective, simply delete the article that instigated the "escalating violence" from his site so most people will never see how it got started and yet continue his character assassination of Jason anyway. It's like he shot Jason and then ditched the gun and picked up a knife. So, the article is reprinted at the bottom of my rant. Mike says he removed it to stop the violence that it inspired, but I think he mainly wanted to cover his ass because his objective was plainly to get as many people as possible to harass and threaten a single individual via email, telephone and physical address for what is looking more and more to me like nothing but an error, a MISTAKE! Thousands against one is not exactly a fair fight. Mike knew that when he put that article out there, it would stay out there regardless of whether he removed it from his site or not. You cannot convince me that Mike did not know exactly what he was doing. Mike Adams truly abused his power this week.... And he is showing no signs of letting up.

Mike Adams has written an email update to this situation still accusing Jason of extreme wrong doing and yet Jason has apologized several times publicly, has corrected his errors and apologized some more. To hear Jason tell it he has complied with everything Mike Adams has requested... What happened between then and Mike's latest assault?

>From Mike's latest email update on this matter: - (Bold parentheses mine):

"As far as the update on the web content pirate goes, the guy has turned out to be quite a trickster. He insisted I call him to resolve the issue, but his phone was disconnected (The number for Jason that Mike published was old and so now, per Jason who has been contacted by attorneys, an innocent person is receiving harassing phone calls and is having to seek legal action). He emailed me and promised a public apology for pirating NaturalNews content, then went back on his word. (Really?) He claims he didn't know that stealing other peoples' work was wrong (Again, Mike is accusing Jason of being criminally libel without presenting anything but circumstantial evidence - I don't think Jason didn't know that stealing other peoples' work was wrong, but that he did not realize that he was stealing in the first place - there is a big difference), and he's suckered in quite a few people (I guess I would be one of those people but I only feel suckered by Mike Adams) by playing the victim here, claiming he's the "small guy" attacked by the NaturalNews "Goliath."

Well, I have news for everyone: I'm the small guy! (Global traffic - 853k monthly) NaturalNews is run by a tiny group of people (If you have a staff - paid or not - your not a "small guy"), and I'm 100% volunteer. I don't get paid a dime by NaturalNews (He makes his money somewhere), and I'm up against Big Pharma and the FDA, fighting for our health freedom every day and expecting no compensation in return for it. (can you hear the violins playing?) When I'm working 16 hours a day creating content to fight for our health freedoms, and (allegedly) a con artist comes along and copies it, puts his own name on it, makes money off it, gets exposed for it and then claims HE's the victim (He is a victim if he only made a mistake and meant no harm - but Mike has found Jason guilty without a trial - he has presented, thus far, NO clear-cut evidence that this was anything other than an error on Jason's part - guilty until proven innocent?!?!), I can only laugh out loud. Has morality in America sunk so low than even a common thief can claim he didn't know he was stealing anything and some people are fooled by his act?" (Like they are fooled by your self claims of being something akin to a nearly faultless super hero destined for sainthood)

Has common decency dropped so low that the only way a person can handle a perceived problem is with retaliation and attorneys?

Notice how he twists everything to make Jason look really, really bad and himself practically a saint. He never once admits that he handled the situation ALL wrong or even a little wrong. Never does he apologize for unnecessarily dragging his readers into this or for endangering someone's life over a COPYRIGHT issue for God's sake! I don't think anyone is ever 100% correct about everything, but Mike seems to think he is.

Mike then goes on in the email update to praise himself some more. It's quite amazing what Mike thinks of himself. If Mike is the "little guy" then Jason really is a nobody and shouldn't even show up on Mike's radar. So what is really going on with Mike Adams? Am I the only one that thinks charges should be brought up against Mike for libel? slander? character assassination? Reckless endangerment of life and limb?

It seems that I'm not the only one, as this comment was recently left at

"Jason, I’m not a reader of your blog nor do I read naturalnews, but a colleague of mine does follow health news quite dutifully and he brought this specific situation up in our law ‘meetup’ this week. Well, some of us are curious now to find out if any legal action has been taken by you (or Mr. Adams because he seems to be the one intending to do so)."
"Well, the elements of the rules, which he would need to establish you broke, regarding plagiarism are vague (and usually difficult to prove). However, your position that Mr. Adams attempted to intentionally character assassinate you is much more established. Here is the definition of ‘character assassination’ according to Wikipedia,
“Character assassination is an intentional attempt to influence the portrayal or reputation of a particular person, whether living or a historical personage, in such a way as to cause others to develop an extremely negative, unethical or unappealing perception of him or her. By its nature, it involves deliberate exaggeration or manipulation of facts to present an untrue picture of the targeted person. For living individuals, this can cause the target to be rejected by his or her community, family, or members of his or her living or work environment. Such acts are typically very difficult to reverse or rectify, therefore the process is likened to a literal assassination of a human life. The damage sustained can be life-long and more, or for historical personages, last for many centuries after their death. In practice, character assassination usually consists of the use of double speak, spreading of rumors, innuendo and deliberate misinformation on topics relating to one’s morals, integrity, and reputation.”
"Do you have a copy of his initial post? Either way, I would be documenting everything. The one thing in our group everyone agreed on was that they would much rather be in your position than his."

But according to the following quotes from Mike Adams, he must feel that he is covered and justified in "having some fun" with Jason and directing a vigilante mob of people to do what's necessary to destroy him online (and offline, otherwise why publish his home address?). Because Mike Adams feels that intentional harassment, even if it leads to suicide of the victim, is not a crime and therefore there should be no punishment for it. That's taking character "assassination" a little too far, but Mike thinks it's not a crime. It's OK to kill people if you can get them to do it to themselves.

"...Listen: If a person decides to go kill themselves based on something you said, that's their problem, not yours. Words and thoughts are not crimes. ACTIONS are crimes. If Lori Drew pummeled that teen girl to death with an oversized computer monitor, then that would be a crime. But creating a false online personality and taunting the girl with words is no such crime.

It may be stupid. It may be mean. It may even be psycho. But it's not a crime...."

"...The law, you see, is selectively applied to whatever prosecution the public mob is calling for. We are no longer a nation of laws, we are a nation of Oprah-fied justice, where people are first found guilty in the tabloids, and then prosecutors scrounge around for some law they can find that might somehow apply.

The whole thing has turned out justice system into a complete joke..."

So please, Mike Adams, continue with your stupid, mean, psycho - but not a crime? - harassment. After all the system is a joke and you're protected by "Oprah-fied justice".

For a man that is practically a saint in his own eyes, Mike Adams sure does come across as extremely cold hearted. What happened to plain old right and wrong? Watch out Jason, Mike Adams evidently thinks it's OK to harass you to the point of suicide.

Here's what Jason's brother, Ryan, had to say in a comment left on one of my blogs to give you an idea of what Mike Adams started because of his insecure, vain, ego:

Ryan has left a new comment on your post "More thoughts on Mike Adams of and...":
"I'm Jason's brother and what Mike has done and pushed people to do is far worse than anyone knows. Jason is trying so hard to remain positive and NOT continue to blog about it. He’s sent Mike repeated genuinely apologetic emails, he’s fixed the citing issues, removed parts of his site, posted an apology etc etc."

"Mike has explained if he does these things he'll tell his readers that they've solved there issues, but he’s not telling them that. He keeps sending out malicious newsletter updates. This entire situation is crazy. Do you know before this Organicjar had under 20 readers, and my brother only posted several articles a month just on issues he wanted to make sure everyone knew about. He only had 44 articles total on his blog and 12 had referenced Mikes work. I’ve found hundreds of blogs that republish all of Mikes work, everyday. It seems so unfair that my brother would be targeted like this."

"I love my brother and he is truly an inspiration to everyone. About a year ago, he decided to dedicate his life to helping others in need and he always wanted to help get truthful information out there. He did forget to cite articles, he did have his authorship misplaced, he makes mistakes but they were all mistakes that could have been privately corrected."

"I would never wish what my brother is going through on anyone. It’s truly shocking how negative everyone has been, I mean to send death threats, posting his photos on xxx sites, spamming his email accounts, making sure fraud, con appear in google. I guess it only shows you how totally unconscious the world is. I wasn’t aware people couldn’t make mistakes."

This is the original article BY MIKE ADAMS OF NATURALNEWS.COM - as it originally appeared here.
------Only Jason's personal information has been deleted. Mike allows and encourages his articles to be republished as long as they contain proper credit to the source.

"As I've mentioned many times, I openly give people full permission to post my articles with proper credit. That means giving the author the credit as the author and linking back to the source. When people do that, it's all fine by me, and I actually support that practice." - Mike Adams

So here it is.
(NaturalNews) Those who can create, create. Those who can't sometimes steal other people's work and call it their own. Over the last several months, I've watched a clever content pirate called Jason Cairns rip off the NaturalNews website and content, calling our articles his own. He's created a website called which is essentially a giant rip-off of NaturalNews articles and content.

Almost all the articles published on OrganicJar were, in fact, written by me or other NaturalNews contributing writers.

For example, his article entitled "Vitamin D Reduces Risk of Cancers by 77 Percent!" is a direct rip-off of my article called New research shows vitamin D slashes risk of cancers by 77 percent; cancer industry refuses to support cancer prevention at:

In another example, the Organic Jar article Medical Students Fed Up with Professors' Secret Financial Ties to Big Pharma is a word-for-word ripoff of my original breaking news summary at: which just happens to be entitled Medical Students Fed Up with Professors' Secret Financial Ties to Big Pharma. My story was published November 28th, his appeared on November 30th.

By the way, as any good con man would do, Cairns might retroactively change these pages on his site to appear to be original text, so if you're reading this after January of 2009, don't expect the links to his site to corroborate my story here. But I've made a full archive of his entire website for legal purposes, and it's rife with piracy from NaturalNews and many other natural health websites. He's probably stealing from Mercola, too.

But Jason Cairns gives no one credit other than himself. He simply puts his own name on top as the author, runs a lot of ads, and uses social networking tools to try to gather a lot of traffic. He even stole my words for his "about the author" section, in which he describes himself as "...deeply dedicated to the mission of helping people transform their health, improving our planet and empowering individuals to make positive changes in their life."

It those words sound familiar, it's because I wrote them in 2005 in my own bio. What Jason Cairns is really committed to, it seems, is pirating other people's work and calling it his own. Even the look and feel of the OrganicJar website is a rip-off of NaturalNews.

(If Mike doesn't like that Jason's website has "the look and feel" of his website, then he need to call up a posse to attack the maker of that template that is for sale on the internet because they are obviously "pirating" Mike's web design and making money from it. Oh why, oh why is everyone stealing from Mike Adams?! Mike also invented nutrition, ya know.)

To some extent, his piracy has worked, too: His social network includes a lot of natural health people who have been duped by this con man into thinking HE wrote the articles! I even saw the Raw Spirit Fest as a friend on one of his social networking sites.

Like many con men, Jason Cairns is a master of social networking. His Facebook site has attracted plenty of followers who obviously don't know they've been conned.

Cairns also has a well-populated MySpace page and a page.

He even has his twitter site blazing away, claiming he's living some sort of natural health lifestyle. Does that involve eating salads between content pirating sessions?

What a loser, huh? The funny part in all this is that I openly GIVE people permission to use my articles if they just give proper credit to the author and a link back to NaturalNews. But I suppose that's too much to ask from some people: They want all the credit, even for things they didn't write.

Jason Cairns is a thief, a pirate and an embarrassment to the natural health community. We need to work together to expose the dishonest of people like Cairns. Here's how we do that...

Let's have some fun with this guy, shall we?
The last thing con men want is to be outed as con men. So the most effective thing we can all do is publicize the truth about Jason Cairns by linking to this article using his own name. That way, anybody searching for "Jason Cairns" on Google will be likely to find this article.

Here's how you do that: Just copy and paste the HTML code below onto your website:

Jason Cairns from OrganicJar is a con man

Place that on your website or just link to this article using the name "Jason Cairns."

The next thing you can do is start slamming him with emails and phone calls. His contact email is listed as XXX@XXX and his phone number is listed as xxx-xxx-xxxx, although it's worth mentioning these could all be fake. In fact, the whole name "Jason Cairns" might be fictitious.

His listed address is:

(deleted) San Francisco, California (But that's probably fake, too.)

Jason Cairns claims his education as follows: University of Iowa BS, BA, Chemistry, Biology, 1997 - 2002

Activities and Societies: Published article in Journal of Neurobiology, Editor of UIHC newsletter, Licensed EMT Drake University Physics 1999 - 2000

He also claims to be the founder of, a small software development firm where he probably created the technology to steal articles from other peoples' web pages.

Perhaps the best way to reach Jason Cairns is through his MySpace page or page. He's sure to be checking those social networking sites for messages. Imagine the shock when he hears about this, huh?

By the way, all the links in this article use the "nofollow" attribute so that his websites do not benefit from the NaturalNews popularity in any way. The last thing we want to do is give him a boost in the search engines, huh?

Let me put a warning out to other would-be pirates (there are many) who are stealing NaturalNews content: We will expose you as the pirates you are, including all the pirates working over at who steal NaturalNews articles and pass them off as their own.

If you want to use NaturalNews content, folks, just use it with proper credit. Give the author who wrote the story the credit he or she deserves. I don't mind people copying articles if they at least have the decency to give credit to the original author and source. In other words, I support open sourcing content, but the one requirement is that you give credit where credit is due.

So, folks, if you want to have some fun with this pirate, just link to this article using words like "Jason Cairns" and "OrganicJar" and let's watch the search engine rankings rise for this article when people are searching for Jason Cairns. Google can be fun, after all! And sometimes people deserve to be publicly shamed for being such dishonest thieves of other peoples' hard work.

Once again, here are the social networking sites for Jason Cairns:

Facebook | MySpace | LinkedIn

Let him know that his mass piracy of other peoples' content is unacceptable in the natural health community.

Pretty angry and malicious, huh?

More thoughts on Mike Adams of and Jason Cairns of

OK, has it been verified that Jason willfully posted articles from intending to take credit for himself?  Or has it been ascertained that he made a mistake for which has shown to be more than willing to fix?

Or do NaturalNews readers accept anything Mike Adams says without question?  Even though he supposedly "educates" people to do the opposite?

All you people throwing stones at Jason: Would you please share the evidence from your professional investigation with us?  I really do not support thieves or unscrupulous people as a rule.  This why I'm so angry with Mike Adams, because as a role model his behavior has been atrocious.  He seems to have based this whole accusation on circumstance and guessing... Is this how he researches his articles too?  What happened to innocent until proven guilty?  Has Mike abandoned the US Constitution too?

Would you want to be crucified and your life threatened on circumstantial evidence?  Mike could have handled this quietly.  Instead he decided to publicly call for a cyber stoning of Jason and put Jason's life at risk.  WTF?

I'm not "working" for Jason.  I've been a reader and fan of NaturalNews for a few years now.  I'm basing my reaction on Mr Adams not Jason.  Even if Jason did everything that Mike claims he did, Mike still handled it all wrong.  I've seen it over and over.  People start out with good intentions, then they get popular, then they get a massive ego, then they lose the vision and then they don't care who they hurt.  A couple of examples are Oprah Winfrey and Gary Null.

It seems that Jason has been working to create a successful website.  Do you really think Jason thought he could become successful and huge and no one notice that he's stealing from  I don't get the impression that Jason is stupid.  It's obvious that Mike jealously scours the internet to see where his work shows up.  Jason could not have gotten far without someone putting two and two together and figuring out that he was a fraud.  Again, I don't get that Jason is stupid.

I've been increasingly dissatisfied with NaturalNews over the last few months because it looks more and more like Mike is selling out.  I was drawn to Mike because of his bravery of speaking up to the "big guys" in defense of the "little guys" and now we have to defend the little guys against Mike because he's become one of the big guys.  Is it simply inevitable?

I, too, have tried over and over for months to Mr Adams to contact me about the HIV/AIDS fraud (but he avoids this issue - though it affects everyone on the planet - while talking about other issues over and over and over)... So I find it strange that Mike acts like all you have to do is pick up the phone and call him.

The fact that Mike avoids the AIDS issue and supports Scientology and has now attacked Jason deepens my suspicion that Mike is extremely homophobic, which doesn't sit well with me either.  I do not like to support people who would wish me dead because of my private life that's no one's business and hurts no one.

And I find it very embarrassing that Mike Adams is trying to come off as a black rapper with his "Beyond All Reason" "album".  Personally, I don't wish rap to be promoted, but hope that it goes away someday.  Surely there is another way... But, I think Mike wants to continue raising his "star status"...  Ego.

My emotional response is based on being betrayed once again by someone I looked up to, respected and tried to somewhat model myself after (is that plagiarism too?).  This is my own fault.  I admit it.

But, as a amateur natural health advocate and webmaster and student of Naturopathy, I have learned a lot from this episode and I give Mike Adams all the credit.  He is helping me fill in the chapter "What not to do".

From the ashes rise the Phoenix.

Check out: for someone who's not afraid to tackle ALL the issues... Mike Adams is now a regular on weekly radio show too.

Is Mike Adams and NaturalNews losing credibility?


Mike Adams, known by many as the outrageously courageous and outspoken Health Ranger, has committed himself to a top-level affiliate relationship with the company Moxxor. Is Mike Adams now just a pill peddler like the companies he reports on? An open letter to Mike follows.

Will the Internet now be riddled with headlines like:

Formerly independent, Mike Adams is now peddling pills like the companies he reports on. But his pills are better…or are they?


Mike Adams, through his financial affiliation with Moxxor, can no longer call himself an independent journalist.
Is Mike’s official stance still valid?

The NaturalNews Network is owned and operated by Truth Publishing International, Ltd., a Taiwan corporation. It is not recognized as a 501(c)3 non-profit in the United States, but it operates without a profit incentive, and its key writer, Mike Adams, receives absolutely no payment for his time, articles or books other than reimbursement for items purchased in order to conduct product reviews.

You decide.

Mike Adams of endangers fellow natural health advocates' life

Mike Adams, in a fit of overinflated ego, called for a public cyber stoning of a fellow natural health advocate today. It appears that Jason Cairns of inadvertently angered natural health Nazi Mike Adams by incorrectly posting some of Mike's articles without proper attribution. Well, Mike would have none of this and published an article vilifying this man and directing his minions to harass him and threaten him. It worked because Jason is now receiving death threats. Mike Adams demanded an apology after cutting off all routes for Jason to be able to do so... Then to cover his own ass Mike removes the article he published and feigns worry for Jason's well-being and pretends that he did not intend for an all out attack on Jason.

Whatever the full truth, Mike Adams handled the situation like a real ego controlled prick.

Thanks Mike, you're a swell human being there! You've crossed the line and now you are one of "them". A Nazi is a Nazi regardless of the agenda your pushing.

I no longer support or Mike Adams - We are not that desperate.

Mass Pirating of NaturalNews Content Escalates into Threats of Violence - Article Removed

Actually it was Mike Adam's article that started and then escalated the violence. It was not the "Mass pirating" that started the trouble. Mike could have easily contacted Jason directly and handled this, but he decided to behave like an unprofessional, ego-driven maniac (and score up some publicity and web hits in the process).

I don't know Jason Cairns and I was not familiar with his website until Mike Adams introduced it to me, but I can see who is acting more mature and professional here and that tells me a lot. Jason has not removed his article or comments (except for some nasty and pointless ones). Mike has removed them all from his site. has been going down hill over the last few months and though it has provided a good service I don't believe people like Mike Adams should be encouraged because they end up becoming dangerous. If he could do the work without thinking it's all about him, Mike might continue to do well. But, can he subdue the monster of an ego he has created for himself?

Mike Adams does not have a corner on the natural health market and all he does is report on what other people are doing and saying (like anybody else)... He's not creating anything new! There are plenty of natural health advocates out there needing support and Mike may find out he's is expendable and not the god he seems to think he is.

And what about those mature and intelligent readers of Natural News that came forth spewing venom and making death threats? This is the Natural Health Industry? Is this being learned from Mike's example?

The following was recently removed from the contact/feedback page of to show you the level of immaturity and UNprofessionalism that is happening there (I think there is more truth about how Mike Adam's really feels about his readers than there is satire here):

"Please note that much of the article content written on NaturalNews contains satirical comments, jokes and off-the-cuff remarks about all kinds of groups, institutions and individuals. If you feel "offended" by any of these remarks, we ask that you please document the full emotional experience of being offended, and email us a 5,000-word essay on exactly what it was like to allow yourself to feel that offended as you read the words on your monitor. Please also include lab testing results that indicate levels of endocrine chemicals in your brain, as well as a list of any medications you might have been taking at the time of the offense. We also require you to obtain the signature of 100 other individuals who felt similarly offended by the same text, along with their names and social security numbers so we can verify their identity. Please submit all this information to us using the form below, at which point we will alert a team of Harvard psychoanalysts who will fly chartered jets to the NaturalNews headquarters where they will all huddle together and study your documents in order to determine what, exactly, should be done in response to you feeling offended. We spare no expense to take full responsibility for the emotional state of internet users!"

Warning! Under threat of cyber attack do NOT repost or share any of Mike Adams writings... Evidently Mike Adams thinks he is more important than the message.
