A renowned independent researcher into the deep state. He serves as an inspiration to Wikispooks and occasionally contributes ISGP-related content himself.

Joël van der Reijden is a Dutch born independent researcher into the deep state. His theories are independent of a lot of other such work on the internet and focus upon hidden power. He has assigned a "global superclass index" to key individuals in an effort to simplify the importance of people and organisations.[1]

Joël van der Reijden created the Institute for the Study of Globalization and Covert Politics, a website formerly known as the Project for the Exposure of Hidden Institutions. The site published a number of studies and original documentation on little known but apparently very influential organizations: Le Cercle, The 1001 Club, the Anglo-American Pilgrims Society, the American Security Council, the Center for Security Policy, the OSS Society, the AFIO and others.

Joël van der Reijden has created a database of over 1,300 important NGOs worldwide and all the key people running them. The information resulted in the site's "Superclass Index". [2] Over time, ISGP also created its "Four-Establishment Model" and "Box Model for Politics".[3]

“There most certainly is evidence that quite a bit of child abuse takes place at the highest level of society and that people in this milieu for the most part care little about this problem. Also, there have been very demonstrable ties between the royal house of Orange, Klaas Bruinsma-Etienne Urka-John Engelsma-Charles Geerts Maffia and Intelligence & Operations. This last group was the Dutch brand of CIA Operation Gladio/"Stay Behind" network. These ties have to be investigated much deeper, because it appears that it's from this milieu that a lot of manipulation of the Dutch state has taken place, seemingly including paedophile entrapment operations. And isn't it just really strange that all Dutch names that have been leaked over the years with regard to paedophilia include homosexuals?”
Joël van der Reijden (October 2014)  [4]

In addition, the site published on subjects as the Belgian X-Dossiers [5], peak oil [6], CIA drug trafficking [7], the "Liberal CIA" NGO, media and activist network [8]; its "Conservative CIA" counterpart [9]; Hollywood [10], immigration-related issues [11], the Kennedy assassination [12] and covert politics in Russia. [13]

In contrast to widespread speculation of a second shooter with the RFK assassination, ISGP is of the opinion that there is no evidence whatsoever for a conspiracy in this case.[14] ISGP also disavows the similar speculation of a second shooter with the Pim Fortuyn assassination. [15]

Site closure and reopening

ISGP was closed in late September 2010 "after the millionth page load". With permission of Joël, Wikispooks acquired an archive of the entire site and maintained a live copy of it on the Wikispooks server until Joël reopened ISGP in December 2014.[16]

Basic beliefs

ISGP distances itself from some popular "conspiracy theories" such as Holocaust revisionism, chemtrails, the Illuminati, freemasonry, 9/11 no planes, the Moon landing hoax, flat earth, ancient aliens, Atlantis and anything to do with UFOs.[17]

The site lists as the "most important cover ups/conspiracies of all time": JFK assassination, 9/11, Third World (immigration) crime and ethnic IQ numbers, Operation Gladio, CIA drug trafficking, U.S. support of death squad leaders (especially in Latin America), Hoover's FBI denying that such a thing as the mafia existed until forced to admit it by Robert Kennedy, while the CIA had recruited its leaders to help overthrow Fidel Castro; Neville Chamberlain's collaboration with western banks and multinationals and the fascist]] regimes before World War II to destroy communism and socialism; apparent top level pedophile entrapment networks, 1999 Russian Apartment Bombings, control of the intelligence agencies over the alternative media, reality of the UFO phenomenon and the existence of more than the physical. [18]


Joël van der Reijden has been researching and writing about 9-11 since early 2004, explaining that 9/11 - on the day itself - was the beginning of his skepticism towards government and the media. Starting in 2006 he publicly distanced himself from the subject in order to focus on documenting deep parapolitical networks and not worry about the stigma attached to 9-11 research. However, in the 2012-2016 period he did finish up a number of extensive articles, some of them book-length, that deal with almost every aspect of 9-11: the 9/11 Commission [19], NIST and the World Trade Center collapses [20], WTC 7 as a separate issue [21], suspects within the global superclass [22], and control of the security services over the "mainstream" 9/11 Truth movement - which he has always been in a state of war with. Van der Reijden is primarily supportive of the work of former Lockheed Martin and BAE Systems mechanical design engineer Tony Szamboti, who aided him in some of the World Trade Center analyses. [23]


In January 2013 Van der Reijden introduced the theory that the old Safari Club network (or "Shackley group" as he more often refers to it) surrounding top CIA officers George H. W. Bush, Richard Helms, Frank Carlucci and Theodore Shackley should be considered key suspects of having served as a bridge between Saudi and Pakistani backers of the 9/11 hijackers, top level elements in the Bush administration (President Bush and secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld, a best friend and protege of Carlucci), and those who, apparently, rigged the World Trade Centers towers with thermite and explosives.

Van der Reijden also brought in the unique angle of Far West, a Russian-Ukrainian GRU company that since 1998 maintained a secret partnership with Dick Cheney's KBR Halliburton and in addition was tied to the same Saudis of the "Shackley group", as well as to the Pakistani ISI, the global drug trade [24], and seemingly even terrorists that included Shamil Basayev, Ayman Al Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden. [25]

Van der Reijden first began to pay close attention to Ted Shackley after finding out in 2010 that this controversial CIA officer headed Atlantic Cercle, Inc., the registered office of Le Cercle in the 1994-2002 period. In fact, the NGO was registered at Shackley's Florida estate. [26]

Van der Reijden looks at the Shackley group as sitting at the center of a vast range of conspiracies from the 1963 JFK assassination until the destruction of the Twin Towers in 2001. This includes CIA drug trafficking, death squads and Gladio terrorism in Europe.[27]

Truth movement infiltration

Van der Reijden is perhaps the most vocal opponent in the 9/11 Truth movement of any kind of no-plane theories, arguing that they have been invented by the superclass and international security services to discredit the movement. One of his first articles ever, dating back to January 2005, makes a powerful case that Flight 77 did indeed hit the Pentagon [28] He has also been maintaining an extensive list of persons who have promoted no-plane theories.[29]

RFK Assassination

A long article by Joël van der Reijden from 2019 entitled No Evidence of a Conspiracy — Except for the Mountains of Disinformation; What is the Media up to? challenges the idea that the RFK Assassination was a conspiracy.[30]


Quotes by Joël van der Reijden

"Alt-right"“It should be clear that it is with the "Alt Right" where the term "conservative CIA" really comes into its own. As readers will quickly find out by analyzing all the entries here, there's really no point in calling the "Alt Right" the "Alt Right". It should either be called Old Right, or, more accurately, "conservative CIA". Similar to the "liberal CIA" social Democrats and the antifa, it's a completely artificial creation, meant to pervert huge anti-immigration sentiment among the population and prevent any kind of decent, honest research into conspiracies as JFK and 9/11. If you are against further Third World immigration - which easily 70-80% of whites are and 60% of minorities - or open to conspiracy, you are literally forced to take refuge in this pre-created political box and get behind one of the gurus here. Otherwise you and your opinions essentially don't exist.”7 April 2019ISGP
9-11/Air Defence“According to mainstream information, QRA intercepts happened at a rate of almost 400 times per year in the early 1990s. After the reduction to 7 sites, each with two jets, in the late 1990s, they still occurred roughly twice per week right up to 9/11. What are the details of these intercepts with regard to protocol/chain of command and reaction time?

Who exactly was responsible for the failure to redirect QRA jets, normally aimed at planes coming in from overseas, toward threats emerging from over the mainland?

Why were no QRA jets available at Andrews Air Force Base, right next to the nation's capital, a primary target for every terrorist in the world? Terrorists of various convictions have tried to target the White House and other buildings with airliners and small airplanes since at least 1974. What message does it send to world when the world's greatest superpower leaves its capital without air cover?

NORAD's Langley interceptors accidentally flew east over the ocean while they should have been heading to the north-west, towards Washington, D.C. This was standard operating procedure when pilots were scrambled but not provided with a target. How could this mistake happen, as any commander at any level should be aware of this basic procedure? Who is responsible?

Why weren't the pilots of the Langley jets provided with information on their target? Who is responsible for that?”
Jan Peter Balkenende“Of course, even if we ever determine that Volkert van der Graaf was an agent, wittingly or unwittingly, of a "liberal CIA", that does not mean that the Fortuyn case is automatically closed. In this article plenty of evidence has been presented that indicates Fortuyn and close allies as Theo van Gogh, Oscar Hammerstein, Gerard Spong and Tomas Ross, like Volkert van der Graaf and "liberal CIA" NGO network and Friends of the Earth, are part of a parallel security state-controlled network of (neo)conservatives and related right-wingers, which we could well term "conservative CIA". At a higher level, this (neo)conservative network actually got its way with the 2004 murder of Theo van Gogh by an Islamic radical.”ISGP
Klaas Bruinsma“Boys Club de Amstel ... ran by a certain Mr. Kroner [Kreuner]. A business partner of him was liquidated in the 90's, an acquaintance of de Dominee [Klaas Bruinsma], who regularly visited there. ... Getting back to Piet van Haut: This fantasy-filled caricature also brought along a certain Marc [Dutroux], later known as the Monster of Belgium. This Marc had contacts with Duscedo, of the imperium of the gentlemen Tukkers and consorts. [Incorrect, unclear sentence follows, so loosely translated:] With Charles Geerts pulling the strings.”2014
Klaas Bruinsma“Who is to say that Abbas, Bruinsma and "the Hakkelaar" weren't used as pawns in a game much larger than they were, much as Mink Kok seems to have been used time and again? They are allowed to flourish a little bit, receive a little protection, a little legal aid, and when their time is up some rival gang takes them out and that one gets the protection when necessary. It's entirely possible. But where would the manipulation of these mafia groups come from? Most likely CIA Gladio/"stay behind" networks, which, during the Cold War, revolved around Prince Bernhard and individuals as Bib van Lanschot and Cees van den Heuvel.”2014
Klaas Bruinsma“Is Bruinsma's early connection with Mabel a coincidence? Maybe. But there are an awful lot of coincidences here. Mafia bosses Klaas Bruinsma, Etienne Urka and John Engelsma all seem to have had close direct or, through Oscar Hammerstein and Frits Salomonson, very close indirect ties to the Dutch royal family. Rutger Schimmelpenninck, partner in Boekel de Neree and curator of Text Lite, also has very close ties to the royal family.”2014
Willem-Alexander Ferdinand“Readers might remember "Rob B." (Rob Boon), who, together with Salomonson, Hammerstein and Abbas was involved in apparent money laundering at Text Lite, Stichting Administratiekantoor Korf and the Femis Bank, largely for the Bruinsma mafia. It was already mentioned that Boon was also targeted by the Justice Department for fraudulent practices at Advideo. A quick look into this last company reveals a whole new cesspit with various claims being made involving famous Dutch media personalities, cocaine parties, sex farms, Dutch intelligence-financed assassinations to protect the royal family, and seemingly a violent child abuse network. The generally very accurate and informed Dutch conspiracy-research Kleintje Muurkrant didn't go into too much detail, because its editors decided that they "would like to last a little longer." As for the Bruinsma mafia itself, first a minor recap. Bruinsma's heirs, after he was assassinated in 1991, was the triumvirate Etienne Urka, John Engelsma, and Charles Geerts. Urka helped save Queen Juliana in 1975 and Engelsma was spotted running the 1999 New York Marathon with then-Crown Prince Willem Alexander. Both were supporters of Mabel Wisse Smit when she ran into trouble due to her history with the Bruinsma mafia. So was Geurt Roos, an important bodyguard of Bruinsma. Charles Geerts has no known ties to the royal family, but is known to have been rather friendly with mafia attorney Bram Moszkowicz.”2014ISGP
Gladio 3.0“To illustrate in a bit more detail, the terms "liberal CIA" and "conservative CIA" do not refer to establishment GOP and DNC candidates, nor to known superclass members: anyone from Donald Rumsfeld to a Henry Kissinger or Madeleine Albright - because we already know these people have their own agenda. No, these terms denote individuals and groups that present themselves as "opposition" to "the establishment" - but, through a combination of their (dogmatic) opinions and funding from various CIA-tied foundations (or the CIA itself) can be identified as "controlled opposition".”7 April 2019ISGP
Dennis Hastert“A second genuine element of Pizzagate is the case of former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert, sentenced to prison in 2016 for being a "serial child molester". Lucky for him, the statue of limitations had run out on the most important charges, resulting in only 15 months in prison.

The Wikileaks releases revealed Tony Podesta acknowledging in a June 1, 2015 email to "have stayed in touch with denny Hastert [for] almost 50 years since Camp Nose." Obviously it would be interesting to know what Podesta and and others in government exactly knew about Hastert's behavior.

Peculiarly, when the indictment of Hastert was announced on May 28, 2015, John Podesta's old colleague from the Clinton administration, Jake Siewert (who also served in the Obama administration under superclass Treasury secretary Timothy Geithner and then became an executive at Goldman Sachs), sent him an email of only one sentence that read: "Might be time for Denny to vanish to an undisclosed Japanese island." That's a clear reference to Camp Nose, located on Osaka island, Japan, and where Tony Podesta (without John) went to in 1965 with Denny Hastert on a "People to People Student Ambassador Program". By the time they were sent over, Podesta and Hastert were in their early 20s and were involved in the oversight of some the youths.

The fact is, it's entirely possible that John or Tony Podesta already communicated to Siewert, a frequent contact of theirs, about a May 19 email to the Podestas from Masahiko Horie, an old member of Camp Nose who went there with Tony Podesta and Hastert. If not, that would be very strange coincidence and very much indicitive of Hastert's pedophile activities going back all the way to Camp Nose. But even then, why single out Nose? So most likely it's the former - there's been communication. And that doesn't exclude the latter possibility.”
LSV Minerva“Back in the day, both Frits Salomonson and Oscar Hammerstein were members of the elite Minerva fraternity, together with much of the royal family, not to mention Joris Demmink and Pieter Bakker Schut. Both also served as "praeses" (basically a squad or platoon commander) in the Minerva-linked Pro Patria ("Pro-Homeland") , a patriotic militia for drunk students that serves as a ceremonial guard during events associated with the royal family. Once a year Prince Bernhard came to talk to its leadership. Reportedly Demmink also served in Pro Patria. Holland's most famous comedian, Youp van 't Hek, actually wrote a few words about Pro Patria in a 1990s fax to Frits Bolkestein, a right-wing Bilderberg participant who has played a central role in the rise of Holland's "populist" candidates Geert Wilders and Thierry Baudet. In his 1998 book Fax, we read: "As you know I come from the circle of preppy frat boys and I inquired a little with some guys who in that period were stomping around at Leiden's Minerva. ... Don't let them tell you anything Frits [Bolkestein, a Bilderberg visitor], that Pro Patria is a very creepy little club about which the most disgusting stories are making the rounds. Stories I don't even dare to write down and which are so terrible that they couldn't have been made up by the most treacherous mind. Even if 10 percent is true, then you become uncontrollably nauseous for a long time."”2014ISGP, JVDH
Netherlands/Deep state/Functions“The accusations against Bruinsma, Geerts, Scala and Videorama speak for themselves. And this same group has its ties to members of the Dutch royal family. Not mentioned yet, in 1989 Geerts put up a $500,000 bail for U.S. porn boss Reuben Sturman, a good friend of his. Back in the 1970s and 1980s Sturman and his partner Robert DiBernardo, both working for the Gambino crime family (DiBernardo was murdered on orders of John Gotti, soon after he (once again) was indicted for production and distribution of child pornography), maintained a virtual monopoly on the hardcore porn industry in the United States. They were also repeatedly accused of involvement in the production and distribution of child pornography, which until the late 1970s still was somewhat sanctioned. A gigantic portion of this type of material actually was imported from the Netherlands at the time.”October 2014ISGP
Manuel Noriega“[Manuel Noriega] allied himself with the Medellin Cartel, his country serving as an important transit point for cocaine towards the United States. The Reagan administration worked with Noriega in support of the Nicaraguan contras, but by 1989 the dictator was growing out of control and had become such a liability to the United States, that George H. W. Bush ordered an invasion of Panama to capture Noriega. During his trial in the early 1990s, numerous witnesses/drug traffickers accused Noriega of drug trafficking, along with ties to George H. W. Bush, Colonel Oliver North and other CIA Contra figures.<a href="#cite_note-33">[33]</a> As the torture-murder of Hugo Spadafora in particular revealed, Noriega also was an extreme human rights violator who, similarly to the drug cartels and the CIA, had no problem torturing his enemies to death.<a href="#cite_note-34">[34]</a>27 August 2016ISGP

Taiwan“CIA reports from 1952, and published in 2007, give additional confirmation that Kodama and some of his associates had been recruited by Army G-2 in order to help the United States fight communism. Kodama's group sent spies to surrounding communist countries and delivered mercenaries to Chiang Kai-shek's regime in Taiwan. In the documents the CIA also claims that the group was primarily working for themselves and were a great danger to the democratic process in Japan. [47] Unsurprisingly, MacArthur was a great supporter of Chiang Kai-shek on Taiwan, in contrast to President Truman and the State Department. Reportedly, MacArthur, as Supreme Commander for the Allied Powers in Japan, was asked to help put together a plan to remove Kai-shek - but he refused”2014ISGP
The Philippines“1995, Catholics for a Free Choice, 'Opus Dei: The Pope's Right Arm in Europe': "The Hanns-Seidel Foundation, based in Germany, is accredited with and receives funding from the European Union. The foundation is linked with the CSU (the Bavarian Christian Democrat) party of the late Fritz Pirkl, who was in the European Parliament and served on the boards of directors of Hanns-Seidel and the Rhine-Danube Foundation. Together with Limmat, Hanns-Seidel has funded Opus Dei’s extensive operations in the Philippines, including the Centre for Research and Communication. The centre’s "self-declared task is to form the future economic and political elite of the country," writes Opus Dei critic Peter Hertel. "Under President Corazon Aquino, Opus members have put a decisive stamp on the country’s Constitution."”20 JL
Maarten van Traa“As just stated, back in the early 1990s Langendoen and Van Vondel played a key role in the IRT affair. However, the more one tries to understand the affair, the vaguer it gets. Langendoen and Van Vondel allowed drug shipments to pass through customs in order to be able to find and arrest the major mafia bosses behind the trafficking, a typical American strategy that before and since the IRT affair has largely been illegal in the Netherlands. A June 1999 article explains the affair in the following manner: "Criminals didn't import 100 kilos [of cocaine] with help from the Dutch police, as the 1996 Van Traa Commission concluded, but 15,000 kilos of cocaine has been brought to market. But for the rest everything is a-okay.

"Various justice officers, an independent Wierenga Commission (1994), the parliamentary enquete [Van Traa] commission (1995) and the rijksrecherche [FBI] (1996) never managed to fully clarify the IRT affair. What is certain is that under the leadership of two Haarlem detectives, Langendoen and Van Vondel, who worked for the IRT team, about 100,000 kilos of soft drugs was brought onto the market during infiltration attempts [i.e., authorized pass-throughs]. But many questions remained unanswered. It is unclear, for example, how the police financed the drug imports and there was evidence that cocaine was imported royally. "Teeven and his chief officer H. Vrakking - who in 1993 decided to dissolve the IRT team... - have always been anxious to demonstrate that especially the Haarlem branch of the IRT team [i.e., Langendoen and Van Vondel] was out of line. ... Teeven recently opened negotiations with the for arms trafficking sentenced Mink K., who earlier had been a target of the IRT."

The primary target of the IRT team was mafia boss Klaas Bruinsma. After he was murdered in 1991 his successors as John Engelsma, porn boss Charles Geerts, and especially Etienne Urka became the target of the IRT. No one was caught, however, and reportedly the IRT was so "fixated" on the Bruinsma/Urka network that they forgot to pay attention to the network of Mink Kok, who, together with his allies, managed to smuggle 15 tons of cocaine through the backdoor. Certainly Kok's partner, Jan Femer, referred to the IRT years of 1991-1993 as the "golden years": "We could bring in almost anything: hash, coke, heroin, semtex, whatever we wanted." Kok was arrested in August 1994 in relation to an assassination a year earlier.”
Donald Trump“Break with tradition, or so it seems. Vilified by the entire Rockefeller and liberal media establishment, but strong evidence he himself is "conservative CIA". Brought to power by "conservative CIA" CNP financiers/members as the Mercers, Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway. Trump himself has many long-standing, curious security state and establishment ties, among them: in December 2000 Trump was part of a 94-guest dinner organized by Bilderberg steering committee-, Pilgrims Society-, and 1001 Club-member Conrad Black, where Trump was seen chatting with Henry Kissinger at a table. Happy Rockefeller, the widow of Nelson Rockefeller; Lynn Forester de Rothschild, Richard Perle, Vernon Jordan and later exposed serial pedophiles Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell all were part of this dinner.”2020ISGP
UFO“So, are Unacknowledged Special Access Programs out of control in the United States? Good question. The term "Special Access Program", let alone "Unacknowledged Special Access Program", is only very seldom mentioned in the media. For example, these terms have not been mentioned at all in relation to the NSA spy revelations in recent years of William Binney and Edward Snowden, even though one would expect that many of the NSA spy programs as PRISM, Stellar Wind, Boundless Informant and JTRIG fell into this category. The term "Special Access Program" did recently surface with regard to the Hillary Clinton email scandals. As Obama's secretary of state, Clinton, against protocol, maintained a private mailbox full of information on all kinds of Special Access Programs. No details on these programs have been provided.”ISGP
