‘Independent investigative journalist’ Jim Stone is a fraud: Not former NSA; no insider knowledge

Jim Stone calls himself an “independent investigative journalist” and has an eponymous blog: JimStone.is.

Stone claims special skills and insider knowledge as a former, but disaffected, U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) operative with “above top-secret clearance,” although he never specified what position he had held there. The NSA insider knowledge would account for why Stone rarely cites his sources (more on that later).

But being a disaffected NSA agent who is now dedicated to revealing the truth is also the reason why he is targeted by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In fear of his life, he fled the United States for Mexico, where he continues to be a truth warrior despite his website being constantly harassed and attacked by the shadowy spooks because the information he imparts to his readers is so exclusive and important (more on that later).

For all that, Stone solicits donations from his readers, who obligingly shower him with the monthly minimum he claims he needs to support himself and his wife in an undisclosed location in Mexico.

This post is about who Jim Stone is: He is neither a former NSA agent nor does he have special insider knowledge.

Not former NSA

On November 14, 2017, Merit Freeman, a contributor to Dr. Makow’s blog HenryMakow.com, doxxed Jim Stone. Makow had supported and believed in “Jim Stone”. Freeman writes:

“Stone guards his privacy with a virtual chastity belt of anonymity. While he slips in the rare quip about his personal life now and again, his readers know relatively little about the man whom they idolize, the man to whom they donate their hard-earned money in order to preserve that his brand [sic] of no-nonsense truth….

Heikkila has constantly been able to dun his readers for hundreds of dollars every month [sometimes thousands]. He has used the money to purchase land, multiple vehicles and to build a house in Mexico. He is unable to return to the U.S., as he is wanted by the courts on past-due child support, contempt of court and domestic violence charges.”

According to Freeman:

(1) Jim Stone is the alias of a man named James Milford Heikilla. Below is his passport.

(2) James Heikkila’s biography:

  • He was born on March 13th, 1966 in Hartford, Wisconsin.
  • Abandoned by his parents as a toddler, he spent his childhood in foster care, where he was tortured and abused by foster parents and siblings.
  • He attended Prescott High School in Prescott, Wisconsin, and graduated in 1983.
  • Heikkila has been married five times:
    • He met his first wife in Wisconsin; she filed for divorce and they legally separated in 1993.
    • Heikkila divorced his second wife, citing her drug issues and infidelity.
    • He met his third wife in Utah; adopted her son from a previous relationship and they eventually had a daughter together. James filed for divorce in August of 2001.
    • In 2009, his fourth wife helped him pen his first truther report, “Tainted Nightmare,” which outlined the dangers of the Swine Flu vaccines and the plans to unleash the tainted vaccines onto selected members of the populace. Upon hearing that she was leaving him, Heikkila emptied a can of pepper spray in her face. He was charged by the State of Maryland with second-degree assault and, later, domestic violence. He told his readers that the assault charge was due to a can of pepper spray accidentally discharging in his luggage and inadvertently striking a law enforcement officer, resulting in trumped-up charges. This was a lie.
    • He now resides in León, Guanajuato, Mexico with his fifth wife.

(3) James Heikkila’s job history:

  • He was a mill worker at Geneva Steel in Vineyard, Utah until it shut down in 2001.
  • He later started his own company, selling, renting and stocking vending machines.
  • He was a locally renown pianist in Massachusetts, before leaving the world of music in 2003.
  • Blogger:
  • In early 2001, Heikkila introduced himself to the online world with StoneBound.com, dedicated to his music.
  • In early 2008, he launched a website dedicated to his photography. ‘Jim Stone: Freelance Photographer’ featured his original images. In early 2013, he started another site, “Budget Camera Review’. 
  • Heikkila added a forum on conspiracy theories and politics to his photographer website. That forum eventually evolved into his current site, JimStone.is. Freeman writes: “He would later integrate another truther forum into his site, the ‘Reactor Breach Forum.’ It was heavily controlled and moderated. Anyone spouting anti-Jim Stone rhetoric was quickly gaslighted and banned. The forum eventually fizzled out after it became evident that the goal was not to share ideas, but rather to blow boost Heikkila’s ego and to promote the personal website of the head forum moderator, a power-hungry Canadian Scientologist.”

(4) “Jim Stone” never worked for the NSA. He’s a fugitive, not because he’s hunted by spooks, but because he’s a child-support deadbeat. Freeman writes:

“In September of 2011, Heikkila claimed to have been arrested and illegally held for 6 days. There is no legal record of this ever occurring. He claims that law enforcement officers destroyed all of the inventory and equipment for his vending machine company. He wanted to leave the country, but claims that the U.S. government denied him a passport because he was an NSA whistle-blower. He was actually legally forbidden from getting a U.S. passport because his court-ordered child support payments were in arrears.

Heikkila’s backstory would not be complete with addressing the 8000-pound elephant in the room: his claim to have been an ‘MOS33Q10: Electronic Warfare Intercept Strategic Signal Processing / Storage Systems Specialist’ with an above-top-secret clearance at the NSA [United States National Security Agency]. Heikkila has offered up ZERO proof over the years to substantiate this claim. Furthermore, such a rank and designation does not even exist within the NSA. Whether he worked for the NSA or the flea circus, Heikkila has, for the most part, proven to be pretty reliable with the information that he puts out. But why the dishonesty?”

(5) James Heikkila’s religious beliefs have roamed from Christianity to Islam to Judaism:

Freeman writes;

Let’s move on to Heikkila’s beliefs. He constantly espouses his hatred for the Zionists [namely the Ashkenazi Jews], but does he subscribe to any particular religion himself? He says that he was raised as a Christian. He claims to have converted to Islam during his fourth marriage, taking on the name ‘Annas Heikkila’ during that time. From 2005 to 2008, he attended Jewish services in Montreal and Vancouver, Canada. He was in the process of converting to Judaism until the Jews SPILLED THE BEANS ON THE JEWISH CONSPIRACY and realized they would have to kill him. They poisoned him but he was [magically] able to cure himself with pickling salt, vinegar and ammonia window cleaner.

Since absconding to Mexico with his fifth wife, Heikkila claims to be on the run from Israeli-sponsored assassins. He went so far as to claim that 30 ‘storm troopers,’ replete with helmets, shields and riot gear, were once camped out at his domicile, waiting to murder him. Luckily, he spotted them from afar with his god-given night vision abilities and subverted the attack.

“Jim Stone” has no insider information but is a plagiarist

Not being a former NSA spook with “above top-secret clearance,” blogger Jim Stone has no special insider knowledge.

How do I know that? Because I follow the same AltMedia chat forums and message boards (Reddit, 4chan, 8chan) that are Stone’s sources, although he never credits them as his sources of information.

Not only does “Jim Stone” not have special insider knowledge, he’s a plagiarist:

(1) The Fukushima report: Freeman writes —

“Heikkila’s Fukushima report . . . is the cornerstone of his website, [but] it, like the rest of his history, is not without controversy. Heikkila has been accused by Ken Adachi of Educate-Yourself.org of plagiarizing parts of his report on Fukushima, which was published a full ten weeks before his. It seems that Heikkila elaborated on their report, added high-resolution photographs of the Fukushima disaster from Cryptome.org and repackaged it as his own. To his credit, Heikkila’s report is leaps and bounds above that of Educate-Yourself.org.”

(2) “Jim Stone” recently plagiarized FOTM without citing this blog as his source:

From his blog:

Here’s my proof:

On December 23, 2017, I published the post “Epidemic of medical boots: Now it’s Rep. Jackie Speier,” with a pic that I found on Reddit, but I painted in the yellow arrow pointing to Speier’s medical boot.

As you can see for yourself, that’s exactly the pic that Jim Stone uses as his own, without citing FOTM as his source. Shame on him.

(3) Not having special insider knowledge, it’s no surprise that some of Jim Stone’s information is serious flawed. Here’s a recent example:

On December 12, 2017, Jim Stone trumpeted that Congress had an emergency meeting to lock up Hillary Clinton and gave a link to a video on YouTube titled, “JUST IN: Congress had an emergency meeting to lock up Hillary Clinton. See the outcome”.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_n8OeyVgtA

As you can see, the video has been taken down from YouTube.

That’s because Congressman Steve King’s (R-Iowa) impassioned speech actually took place on July 26, 2017, as you can see in this video below:

The video was uploaded to YouTube by Steve King’s staff on July 27, 2017, with this description:

“Congress [sic] King speaks on 7/26/17 in support of legislation that requires the Attorney General to turn over documents about former F.B.I. director James Comey’s involvement in several controversial cases. The legislation passed 16-13. King voted in favor of it.”

To conclude, the blogger “Jim Stone” is not who he claims to be. He is a 5-times married man named James Heikkila; a fugitive from the Unites States for child-support and domestic violence; a Muslim convert (which would explain his hyper-defensive dismissal of reports of female genital mutilation in America, and his uncritical support of Iran); with but a high school education, which makes his claim to have worked in the National Security Agency “with above top-secret clearance” even more laughably ridiculous.

“Jim Stone” is also a con-man, who has conned readers across the world to support him with their hard-earned money.

Expat blogger Jim Stone, who lives in Mexico, goads Trump supporters to violence

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 12:30:17 +0000

eowyn2

Since last year’s presidential campaign, I’ve been following a blogger named Jim Stone (not his real name), who claims to be a former NSA spook and calls himself a “truthseeker” “freelance journalist”.

Very little is known about “Jim Stone”. I found only these on the web:

Stone is an acquired taste because:

  • His writing is of the quick-dash unpolished variety, often unsourced.
  • His website Jim Stone does not have a stable URL as other websites do; his only stable URL is the prefix https://82.221.129.208. When you enter https://82.221.129.208 into your browser, you’ll get the Jim Stone URL of that day, which is https://82.221.129.208 followed by (something something).html. As an example, Jim Stone‘s URL yesterday is 82.221.129.208/baaasepagee9.html. But if you go to that URL today, you’ll get the same page that you read yesterday. The only way to access fresh content is to enter the prefix URL (https://82.221.129.208) and hit “enter”.
  • Stone gives himself special credibility by claiming that, of all the many Alternative Media websites, his site alone is under constant cyber attack by TPTB, which accounts for his site’s weird format, as well as justifies Stone asking his readers for financial donations to sustain him each month.

Beginning a couple of days ago, however, something shifted. Stone is calling on Trumpers to turn to violence as the only solution. Here’s what he wrote yesterday:

A violent outcome may be unavoidable

It is getting hard to do my job of stopping that.

What do I think my job is? To inform people well enough to cause the elite to back off, and not force a violent revolution. But as the days go by, and we get to see just how corrupt the system is, and how mysteriously stupid Trump seems to be on certain topics, and how his hands are completely tied with what he does know about, it is beginning to look like an insurmountable task to prevent the worst possible outcome.

Remember Joe Stack? The guy who supposedly wrote a big manifesto and flew his plane into an IRS building? The IRS version of that event is totally debunked on this web site, but there was a key line in the manifesto Joe Stack probably wrote (this manifesto said nothing about suicide and was obviously about taking direct action against corruption). What was that line? “Violence is not only the answer, it is the only answer”. Joe stack [sic] knew years ago what is becoming more than evident now. Let’s hope to God Trump is the man to save it all, because if he ends up failing we will be completely out of alternative options.

Every day now I am ending up reading headlines which if discussed can only be solved with violence – from the CIA leaks, to car crash murders, to mysterious suicides, tainted vaccines marching ahead like there is no resistance at all – so many different things, because every time something new develops it makes it more and more obvious that we really are running out of options. I am getting tired of reporting this stuff with no hope in sight unless it is a sight mounted on a gun barrel.

If they are going to stop Trump at every turn, including the latest ruling by a federal judge to block Trump’s new immigration ban, it only proves they have absolutely no interest in the American people and are perfectly willing to break all laws to violate that will, simply because they have infiltrated and placed corruption at all levels which make it possible to. If they have eliminated the peaceful options, what else is left?

There are several problems to Stone’s call to violence:

  1. Who (other than Jim Stone) says all the peaceful options are eliminated and only violence is left? Put another way, what evidence is there that violence is the only solution?
  2. Even assuming that violence is the only solution, Stone is urging us to just do it, without any organization or planning — which is insane.
  3. A resort to violence is suicidal and doomed to failure, unless we have the police and the military on our side.

But there is another, even bigger problem than the above three.

How dare Jim Stone urge us to violence when he doesn’t even live in the U.S.? Stone and his wife live in Mexico. That means he won’t be undertaking the violence to which he calls us, nor will he suffer the consequences.

Jim Stone’s irresponsible call to violence is the crossing of that proverbial Line of Rubicon. Beware of this man.

New study finds link between child vaccination and autism – CENSORED

The much-maligned anti-vaccine movement is fueled, in good part, by parents’ suspicion that childhood vaccination causes autism.
The clinical term is Autism Spectrum Disorder: a developmental disability that ranges from mild disabilities of speech and language impairments, to serious developmental disabilities such as cerebral palsy and autism.
Indeed, the statistical data confirm that autism is on the rise. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

  • In 2000, 1 in 150 children were diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
  • In 2012, the number of children with ASD increased to 1 in 68.
  • ASD is about 4.5 times more common among boys (1 in 42) than among girls (1 in 189).

Now, a new study of 666 home-schooled children has confirmed that there is an association between childhood vaccination and autism.
The study is a survey (questionnaire) of 415 mothers who are members of home-school organizations in 4 states: Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oregon. The mothers were asked whether their children had been vaccinated, and about the children’s health conditions. Among the health conditions are neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD), defined as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or a learning disability.
The study found a “significant association” between vaccination and autism. (A statistically significant association means the probability that the association occurred by chance is extremely unlikely.) The study also found that the association between vaccination and autism is compounded if the child is male and/or preterm, i.e., born prematurely at fewer than 37 weeks gestational age.
The study was conducted by a research team of four, comprised of:

  1. Dr. Anthony R. Mawson, Professor at the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, School of Public Health, Jackson State University (JSU).
  2. Dr. Brian D. Ray of the National Home Education Research Institute, an organization in Salem, Oregon which conducts homeschooling research, and publishes the journal Home School Research.
  3. Dr. Azad R. Bhuiyan, Associate Professor, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, JSU.
  4. Binu Jacob, a former graduate student at JSU.

Mawson, et al., published their research findings in an article titled “Vaccination and Health Outcomes: A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers’ Reports,” in a 2016 issue of the journal, Frontiers in Public Health 4:270 (2016).
Frontiers in Public Health describes itself as an open access “peer-reviewed journal aimed at the scientific community interested in the broad area of public health.” The journal’s editorial board is comprised of:

  • Joav Merrick, Health Services, Division for Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, Ministry of Social Affairs, Jerusalem, Israel. Merrick is the journal’s main editor. His title is “Field Chief Editor”.
  • Rustam Aminov, Technical University of Denmark
  • Ross Bailie, University of Sidney, Australia
  • Nina Bhardwaj, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, NY
  • John B. F. de Wit, University of New South Wales, Sidney, Australia
  • Jimmy Thomas Efird, East Carolina University, Greenville

But if you go to the article’s link (https://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fpubh.2016.00270), you will not find it. Instead, you ‘ll get this message:

Error 412
The requested content is not yet available.
Article 231518 is not yet publicly available.

That means the journal pulled the article, which, unless it was for a legitimate reason (e.g., research errors), is a form of post-publication censorship.
Fortunately, Rich Winkel of Thought Crime Radio found the article on Google Cache: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:3ulOESkkTPAJ:journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fpubh.2016.00270+&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

I tried to access the article on Google Cache, but got another Error message:

404. That’s an error.
The requested URL /search?q=cache:3ulOESkkTPAJ:journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fpubh.2016.00270+&cd=2&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

That means the article has been scrubbed from even Google Cache!
But Winkel did manage to capture the article’s Abstract before it was scrubbed:

Vaccination and Health Outcomes: A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers’ Reports

ABSTRACT
Background: Vaccinations have prevented millions of infectious illnesses, hospitalizations and deaths among US children. Yet the long-term health outcomes of the routine vaccination program remain unknown. Studies have been recommended by the Institute of Medicine to address this question.
Specific Aims: To compare vaccinated and unvaccinated children on a broad range of health outcomes, and to determine whether an association found between vaccination and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD), if any, remains significant after adjustment for other measured factors.
Design: A cross-sectional survey of mothers of children educated at home.
Methods: Homeschool organizations in four states (Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oregon) were asked to forward an email to their members, requesting mothers to complete an anonymous online questionnaire on the vaccination status and health outcomes of their biological children ages 6 to 12.
Results: A total of 415 mothers provided data on 666 children, of which 261 (39%) were unvaccinated. Vaccinated children were significantly less likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with chickenpox and pertussis, but significantly more likely to have been diagnosed with pneumonia, otitis media, allergies and NDDs (defined as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or a learning disability). After adjustment, the factors that remained significantly associated with NDD were vaccination (OR 3.1, 95% CI: 1.4, 6.8), male gender (OR 2.3, 95% CI: 1.2, 4.3), and preterm birth (OR 5.0, 95% CI: 2.3, 11.6). In a final adjusted model, vaccination but not preterm birth remained associated with NDD, while the interaction of preterm birth and vaccination was associated with a 6.6-fold increased odds of NDD (95% CI: 2.8, 15.5).
Conclusions: In this study based on mothers’ reports, the vaccinated had a higher rate of allergies and NDD than the unvaccinated. Vaccination, but not preterm birth, remained significantly associated with NDD after controlling for other factors. However, preterm birth combined with vaccination was associated with an apparent synergistic increase in the odds of NDD. Further research involving larger, independent samples is needed to verify and understand these unexpected findings in order to optimize the impact of vaccines on children’s health.

Needless to say, the scrubbing from a journal as well as from Google Cache of an already-published article that confirms parents’ suspicion that vaccines are linked to autism, will only fuel more conspiracy talk.
Our skepticism concerning the article’s scrubbing has good reasons given the credentials of the study’s lead author and the fact that the article was approved for publication by an editor and two peer reviewers.

The lead author of the study is Dr. Anthony Mawson, a naturalized U.S. citizen who was born in England and received his Ph.D. in epidemiology from Tulane University. Mawson is currently a Visiting Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the School of Public Health in Jackson State University (JSU). He is a well-published scientist with 59 publications in various journals:

  • For Mawson’s page at JSU, click here.
  • For Mawson’s cv (or resume), click here. According to his cv, Mawson has submitted a co-authored article (with Brian D. Ray and A. Bhuiyan, the same co-authors of the now-scrubbed Frontiers in Public Health article), provisionally titled “Vaccination and health outcomes,” to BMC: Health Services Research, an open-access, peer-reviewed journal.

UPDATE (Dec. 6, 2016):

My undertanding is that since the journal Frontiers in Public Health had accepted Mawson et al.‘s paper, it should be published and subjected to the usual process of public review and replication. Instead, the journal’s Chief Editor withdrew the paper because of “numerous complaints” based simply on the paper’s Abstract.
Please contact the journal’s Editorial Office and ask for the paper to be published. Here’s the email address:

publichealth.editorial.office@frontiersin.org

Update (May 10, 2017):

Thanks to reader RP, here’s Dr. Mawson’s censored article in its entirety.
Also, Mawson’s study did find a publication outlet — a 2017 issue of the Journal of Translational Science, 2017. See “Pilot comparative study on the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated 6- to 12-year-old U.S. children“.
I recommend you read TruthAlert’s well-reasoned and well-sourced post, “Some thoughts on the globalist agenda, vaccines and population control“.
