Taking A Break

For the past couple weeks I’ve had this website in maintenance mode. I apologize to regular visitors for not announcing my decision to place the site in maintenance mode. I’ve received a number of emails asking me what was up with the website, so I’m clarifying what is going on here today.

I’ve decided to take a break from podcasting and blogging here in order to take care of some things in my personal life. I don’t want to go into too many details publicly, but I will say that I am focused on finding a way to make a living. If you’ve been following my work for any length of time you probably know about some of the problems I’ve had maintaining a job given my publicly stated views and the activities of certain individuals and organizations. Needless to say, it is not easy operating in this world when you’re public with your views regarding race, Jewish power and supremacy, and other controversial topics.

If you have a Lifetime Membership or Subscription to the website, you will still be able to access this website when it is in maintenance mode as long as you are logged in. You can log in to the website here. I will place the site back in maintenance mode on Sunday evening, so if you want to still be able to access the website while it’s private, be sure to log in and check the “Remember Me” box when you do. That way, you’ll stay logged in when you close your browser or leave the website. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email.

I don’t plan on deleting the website, and I’d like to get back to podcasting and blogging in the future. But right now I need to take care of some things. Thanks to everyone who has and continues to support this website and this struggle. I greatly appreciate it.

John Friend


  • Take care, mate!

  • John you’ve done well …..we support you and hopefully things will work out for you. I know how hard it is when you come out an attack the evil elements out there they will come after you and it will jeopardize the way you make your living believe me it happened to me the only good thing I was old enough that it wouldn’t affect me anymore and I could retire so It didn’t bother me but being a young guy I can see how it can be a problem for….you good luck.

      Hey John,

      We totally understand. You’ve already done so much to bring the truth out. Hope you can get things sorted out and make it back.

      You are the ONLY one who gets it right on all issues. I love my Daily Shoah but they cuck hard on 9/11. I think the alt right fears the “tin foil” label as much as cuckservatives fear being called “racist.”

  • Hang in there, John.

    Things will work out.

  • You’ve done a very good job, John, and we completely understand. We appreciate all you’ve done so far. Best of luck to you!

  • Damn,take care John,I was worried there, glad your o.k. hope to hear shows in the future. be safe and real.

  • Greetings all!

    Thanks for the update on the site. I was wondering what was going on when I kept seeing the “In Maintenance Mode” banner here while I was making my “rounds” . . . 😉

    Well, as a “Badge Of Honor” as to the contribution this site, “The Realist Report” has made in shifting the Overton Window towards TRUTH . . .

    . . . I thought you’d all be interested to know when I tried to post this update on Twitter I was blocked with the following message:

    “This request looks like it might be automated. To protect our users from spam and other malicious activity, we can’t complete this action right now. Please try again later.”

    Well done Mr. John Friend and The Realist Report krew!!!

    Best of luck from all of us here at The North Cackilacki Trading Posts. If we can offer any assistance, please don’t hesitate to call . . (The “Crow Phones” are standing by!!!!)

    I, too, know a thing or two about getting “sucker punched” and then “bitch slapped” by our “Special Friends”!!! :-)

  • John.. Really appreciate what you do. Fully understand your pragmatism given the current political climate, the cultural marxism that dominates this country. Very grateful for your insights, you have opened people’s eyes.

  • William Spencook

    I’m so glad I didn’t subscribe. You obviously have some strange ideas on how to operate and manage things.

    • I’m not a subscriber either so I’m not impacted. But, your point is valid. How do you go about honoring the people that signed up with the expectation of content, interviews, etc.? Very important question.

      • Writers and hosts like John are entitled to an occasional break, surely? You know he’s given hour after hour, week after week, for years, right?

      • John’s lifetime membership is still valid for all those like myself who purchased it. Those who purchased shorter memberships will, I’m sure be given the entire extra time John was inactive as new time added to their memberships, when he comes back stronger than ever and with new survival skills no one can take away from him, to do what he does best even better than before. John is not a guy to be easily discouraged but he’s only human like the rest of us and certain basic survival necessities such as being able to put food on the table for your family no matter what happens have to take priority, since without that you’re not even operating at full steam, you’re only half-assing it with wasted energy, anxiety and insecurity about where your next meal is going to come from if this or that donation doesn’t come in.

        A coffee at Starsucks costs almost 4 dollars! High-caffeine and terribly unhealthy “Energy drinks” such as “Monster” or “Rockstar” or “Red Bull” cost almost as much in little cans. Large soft-drinks at restaurants cost at least 2 dollars and beers in clubs cost at least 4 dollars each. I’ll bet you anything that many of the people who complain about John Friend taking time-off to put his own life straight while ignoring “obligations” to his members vote with their shekels or symbols of inner-G at least once a week for a 4 dollar beer in a club or a 4 dollar coffee or a 2 dollar “Big Gulp” poison sugar-crap drink.

        Now, if you only voted your 2 dollars for sugar-crap and not even the 4 dollars every week for the other stuff, you’d end up paying out John Friend’s Lifetime membership fees in a mere 37 weeks! Now, what’s more important? Being able to poison yourself for 2 dollars a week or being able to re-program your mind for a healthy life with the ideas that only John brings you. John is unique in the entire field of WN truthers. So much so that even people like myself who are only in it for “free speech” and “free choice” being restored to all people of goodwill as individuals and hardly ever visit other WN sites (except to find out how dishonest most of them still are when it comes to anything that doesn’t push forward their set-in-stone agendas) — not only visit his site regularly and take the time and effort to comment but actively promote him to other non-WN people as the WN person honorable enough to earn the whole movement the respect it doesn’t really deserve and has not really earned through honorable and t-rootful actions.

  • I wish you well in your search for employment and if I were to hit the lottery be sure that I would shoot you money to help you get by. I’ve always appreciated your work. God speed young man. Perhaps if Trump keeps his word and is able to pull the Jewish indoctrinated masses away from the spell, next year should bring some improvement. I won’t hold my breath since I’ve heard many of men that ran for and took the office of President since 1972. One plus in Trump’s favor is that Congress has been yielding more power to the President over the last two and half decades.

    I turned a major league baseball game on 20 mins ago and what I saw was sickening. The players all wore a patch above their heart that read Orlando but the worst part was small children were waving little rainbow flags. I think T-Shirt were given away or sold. Either way it’s some sick ass stuff.

  • Good luck, John. Those of us fighting The Chosenites for a long time know exactly what you’re up against.

    What “you’re up against” is more degenerate and vile than most people can even imagine. Christ knew, Martin Luther underlined it with a black sharpie pen and great men like Adolf Hitler reminded us in no uncertain terms.

    Nonetheless, many are not really interested in the truth. Although, it’s come to the point where no-one can run for long from the abject depravity of the Jew.

    People are waking up every day, thanks to people like you. Take a break, get a gig, you’ve earned it.

    My prayers are with you.

  • I just recently went through a debate about this very topic with Scott Roberts, who hangs out over on The Renegade Tribune. Roberts is a guy who constantly harps on how ‘cowardly’ pro-White men or women are who make an attempt to remain as anonymous as possible, while they try to do whatever they can to help promote the pro-White cause.

    I have no idea of how Scott Roberts supports himself, but I suspect that he is either self-employed in some way or else he is either on the public dole or sponging off his wife’s paycheck. Regardless of the case, neither Roberts or anyone else has any right to be hurling insults or criticism at anyone in the pro-White community for taking a few common sense precautions with regards to protecting their identity – in today’s current environment, when the jews will try to track them down, put pressure on their employers and get them fired from their jobs and then tarnish their reputations so horribly that they might not ever be able to find another decent paying job. The decision to remain anonymous or to not remain anonymous is up to the individual, and to NO ONE ELSE.

    In John’s case, he has done a enormous amount of outstanding work for the pro-White cause and he’s had his neck and identity on the line from the beginning – and now, he is suffering through the consequences that always go along with making that kind of sacrifice.

    We all wish you the best of luck, John. And, thanks for your sacrifices. Perhaps Scott Roberts would be willing to lend you a helping hand by sharing his secret on how to survive without a steady paycheck and having no concerns about ever getting fired?

    • Dear John;

      You have done a marvelous job and am sure the jewish mafia have come down on you for daring to tell the truth, something the jew has problems with.

      Please keep us posted and we hope you can get established in the real world and come back to continue your gallant expose of the Talmudic psychopathic jewish money power and their strangle-hold on the white World today.

    • Roberts impresses me very much. If he were not pro-White enough that would be the one good reason for faulting him.

      He and Kyle Hunt touched on the topic of anonymity on Solar Storm recently – with nothing excessive coming from either of ’em. Many who could use their own name don’t, and that costs something – what’s not to criticize about that?

      • What annoys me with Scott Roberts is he is always negative and pessimistic. Yeah, I get it the white race is in bad shape right now, but he and other naysayers like him in the white nationalist movement never talk about nationalist parties growing in Europe or the growing European nations (like Eastern Europe) that won’t bring in nonwhites or the growth of vigilante/militia groups forming in Europe to fight the invaders.

        I do respect Scott and Kyle and John Friend and Matthew Heimbach and Jared Taylor and James Edwards, etc, for putting both their names and faces to the movement.

        • wirbiw: Scott Roberts, Kyle Hunt and John Friend are leaders in a movement to free White people from Jewish control and presence. Heimbach, Taylor and Edwards do not have the same goal, even if their rhetoric deliberately overlaps.

          • There is one gigantic difference between Kyle and John and Roberts. Roberts is a 9/11 plane-hugger regardless of what damning evidence he’s presented with while Kyle and John are both 9/11 No-Planers, John being the first openly declared WN that I personally know of to go in that direction (he was a No-Planer even before he declared official WN solidarity), Kyle only more recently in the past 2 years. Kyle has other well-known problems I won’t get into right now that made him an antagonist of John Kaminski, Kevin McDonald and Henrik Palmgren, but on the all-important and essential topic of how PsyOps are pulled so easily most of the time, including the mother of all PsyOps 9/11, he is correct, and he deserves credit for that.

            No one who deliberately pushes “planes on 9/11” can be a “leader” of anything since no one, at this point in time in the post Sandy Hook, post Boston Legless Marathon Charade PsyOp climate can still be that much of a useful idiot and expect anyone to take them seriously, therefore automatically falling into the deliberate shill category. The maxim of shillery is” “Direct agent or useful idiot/ego, the result is the same: disinformation or the creation of enough levels of confusion so that everything becomes believable and nothing knowable.”

            Why would someone who is not an “agent” turn into a shill? Because those are the actions that protect their previous ego-investments in certain lines of thinking and they do not want to either be exposed as “fools” by others or even look at themselves in the mirror and say: “Yes, I was fooled by nothing more elaborate than a ‘reality TV’ production,” “Yes, I am a sucker and I have pushed disinformation to my followers unwittingly.” Roberts still pushes the media narrative of 9/11 and thinks only pointing to a different culprit (Jews instead of Muslims) is enough.

            Roberts had a charade of a “Planes or No-Planes on 9/11″debate” with John Friend and a guy who used to go by the name “Tom from CT” and claimed to have “intelligence connections” a while back. Of course, in completely dishonest fashion, along with his pal Mike “Prostink” Delaney, a hardcore Christian Identity guy whose claim-to-fame is co-producing with John Alan Martinson, a mulatto National Socialist, a 9/11 plane-hugging flick based on Chris Bollyn’s research called “Missing Links,” he refused to consider the evidence and instead used an endless stream of ad hominems against the supposed “rat-faced Jew agent” Simon Shack whose research John & Tom were relying on to make their case.

            “Missing Links” pushes the standard BS “remote controlled planes” narrative that Alex Jones, Loose Change and 99.9% of WN sites promote. Being emotionally-&-ego-invested in that false narrative and knowing that they could not argue against the September Clues evidence fair and square and without using logical fallacies, they simply resorted to all the logical fallacies they could pull out of their behinds and to crown insult on top of injury, then declared victory! lol They also made sure that their other pal, the 5 foot 2 midget standard of “European manhood” at the Daily Sheet-stirrer aka the Daily Skinhead declared “victory” for them by calling the whole charade of a debate a “clean sweep” and publishing the worst-looking picture of Simon Shack he could find on the net where he’s making a face in jest in order to say “look at this Jew” and “win” his scoundrel “point” that way.

            This is a guy who is now a regular on Dukey Dave’s show and one day wants to take women’s liberation back to the stone age and put the Death Penalty on anyone who disagrees with him and the next day cries and moans like a girl about his “freedom of speech” or ability to troll sites being “violated” while ridiculing people like John Friend for being “conspiretards” and “No-Planers” and calling Simon Shack, the single most important alt-media researcher of the past 10 years, “a Jew” because he doesn’t like the way he looks. Shack’s long-time exposure of the holohoax in a country (Italy) that now has holohoax denial laws and pointing directly to Media Fakery Jews like Stephen Rosenbaum, Kenneth Feinberg, Howard Lutnick and a ton of others never even unearthed by either Bollyn or “Missing Links” as main culprits during the 9/11 PsyOp, are, of course, completely ignored.

          • “Jewish revolutionaries like Paul Krassner and I were useful idiots. The Vietnam war was engineered by Illuminati Jews (Rockefeller, Rothschilds) partly to alienate a whole generation.The “WASP establishment” were their errand boys for some time. I was socially engineered. My mind was moulded. They manipulated me using my youth and idealism. Illuminati social engineers promoted a powerful Jewish meme: the universe is unjust if they don’t run it. You see Cabalist (Illuminati) Jews believe that God’s will is expressed through them.

            Throughout history, this demented ideology took the form of a desire to destroy the world and rebuild it in their own image. Thus,they fomented wars to destroy the Gentiles and concentrate money & power in their hands. They put the entire Gentile establishment in place — mostly Freemason collaborators. Collaboration is a prerequisite for success in the public sphere today.” – Henry Makow

            I’ve posted this many times before but it’s worth re-posting in this context:

            “Well, what you’re telling me is that this is a group created to manage research on 9/11, not to pursue it. The objective of disinformation is not to convince you of one point of view or another, it is to create enough uncertainty so that everything is believable and nothing is knowable. ” — Jim Fetzer

            which Fetzer himself, not the trust-worthiest of characters and, in my opinion, like Kevin Barrett, yet another shill, albeit a very deep-cover one sent to “manage research” into Media Fakery and steer it away from the more uncompromising Simon Shack camp, took from:

            “On Belief Versus Knowledge

            It is so important to understand that one of the primary means of immobilizing the American people politically today is to hold them in a state of confusion in which anything can be believed but nothing can be known, nothing of significance that is.

            And the American people are more than willing to be held in this state because to know the truth — as opposed to only believe the truth — is to face an awful terror and to be no longer able to evade responsibility. It is precisely in moving from belief to knowledge that the citizen moves from irresponsibility to responsibility, from helplessness and hopelessness to action, with the ultimate aim of being empowered and confident in one’s rational powers.”

            — Unpublished letter, E. Martin Schotz to Vincent J. Salandria, May 14, 1992

            It is absolutely crucial to understand what this quote is trying to say and without this understanding there will never be what Nietzsche claimed must happen, the trans-valuation of values needed to arrive at a new plateau of truth-seeking impregnable-by-Torjan-horses of half-truth (t-root, to the root case, of foundational value rather than in the leaves of be-leaf).

            To somewhat believe a “truth” is one thing, to know for certain that it’s true is an entirely different matter because only then can you not avoid responsibility and still look yourself in the mirror every day and say “I’m an honest guy with integrity and balls.” No one wants to think of themselves as a coward and this is precisely the psychological mechanism, anchor or leverage that is used by power to control them and keep them in check, relying on the average dissenter’s overall fear and cowardice, which is only slightly more “brave” than that of the non-dissenting robots. So-called dissenting people with still-high degrees of irrational or manufactured levels of fear are perfect as PsyOp candidates, requiring only a slightly different narrative pushed as one of the enmeshed storylines than the one used on non-dissenter zombies. They remain very triggerable through the fear emotion allowing direct access to their subconscious and non-judgmental mechanism.

            “The essence of lying is in deception, not in words; a lie may be told by silence, by equivocation, by the accent on a syllable, by a glance of the eye attaching a peculiar significance to a sentence; and all these kinds of lies are worse and baser by many degrees than a lie plainly worded; so that no form of blinded conscience is so far sunk as that which comforts itself for having deceived, because the deception was by gesture or silence, instead of utterance; and, finally, according to Tennyson’s deep and trenchant line, a lie which is half a truth is ever the worst of lies.”
            — John Ruskin [“Of Vulgarity”; 1887]

  • Hopefully our Glorious Leader Trump will kick out all the mexicans and you can find a job cutting grass, washing dishes, cleaning hotels, or serving fellow white men at restaurants.

    • yeah, like whites didn’t then or aren’t now doing hard work. The Mexicans do it for cheaper and are often on the dole, meaning the white taxpayers (who you mexicans hate so much) are footing the bill for the Mexicans other costs like health care and education etc. Nonwhites don’t have to suffer for being open about their racial views, no matter how harsh they are.

  • An easy way of saving lots of symbols-of-inner-G as well as making extra change on the side is simply by going to garage sales and estate sales. Unfortunately, you can’t party with friends on Friday nights too much because you’ll have to get up early on Saturday mornings which is when most of them are held. The majority of Sunday sales are continuation of Saturday sales that have already been well cleaned out. Check on craigslist for the San Diego area on Fridays. There are hundreds every week in L.A. and Orange county also. Furniture you can refurbish, if you have some carpentry skills is one of the best items to become expert at picking up and turning around. Furthermore, if you get a nose for finding antiques you can later auction off, they could be worth a lot of energy-symbols. Then you just re-sell the items on craigslist. The smaller items you can sell worldwide through the gigantic monopolies of e-bay and amazon but make sure you use another person you fully trust as a front guy to not have to deal directly with paypal. It’s almost impossible to buy or sell anything on e-bay unless you’re signed on to their paypal monopoly. And for other jobs, time is money, so just simply offer to save people time. Ask them what their time is worth and whatever they say, do the job they would have done, better than they would have done it, for less than that amount. Also, remembering this bit of wisdom will save you a lot of unnecessary trouble in relationships with people-in-general in the future:


    The key is to be able to concentrate on that area until you mastered it to the point where you can make a living anywhere and at anytime simply by the number of skills you’ve developed and making yourself useful.

    All the best and don’t put too much false-hope in this Frump guy who recently said if he becomes Pres, he’ll consider attacking Iran for Saudi Arabia! lol

    • P.S. Any skill you have time to develop while others are wasting their time can put food on the table. Nowadays developing a new skill can sometimes be as easy as applying knowledge gained by watching some you tube videos from people who have those skills already and share them on their monetized channels. For example, the writing skills you’ve noticeably improved in the past 4 years can be used to write self-help books under a pen-name or partner with a dude you trust who has a monetized you tube channel that you write the scripts for from behind the scenes for a fee. There are also services online you can sign up for where you use your editing skills to read and edit college students’ term papers for a fee.

  • John: I sure missed your work here the last few weeks, so I just kicked in what little I could to help you get back online. Like Steven Lewis said above, If I get lucky and hit the lottery I will see that you are back to full speed ahead with the Realist Report. I certainly enjoyed our visit last month when I was in California to visit my family.

  • John, anyone who’s followed you over the years knows exactly what you’re up against and why you went dark. Nice to hear you’re okay. The posts about finding or creating a self employment/business stream are probably the best and most helpful advice here. It’s a different mindset, especially if you’ve been mind/slaved/condition into the Job Matrix paradigm. Your skills as a writer are extremely valuable as a direct response copywriter. Once you learn the basics of selling in print/or online. You could make more money than any sane person could ever spend. Don’t pop your head until you’ve got it solved. Those vicious bastards will never relent until they are finally crushed and that is not going to happen anytime soon. Evuentually yes, but the future is uncharted.

  • Thanks for the update!

    Hang in there, Man!
