Kentroversy Papers - Reader's Comments
Who is Kentroversy?
Kentroversy is the pen-name of Kent Daniel Bentkowski, a research-journalist from the Buffalo, New York USA area, which is a short drive away from Niagara Falls. The name came from my best friend, who one day long ago, mentioned that because of my journalistic specialty, that I was always trying to start a Kentroversy. I knew immediately upon hearing this nickname, that it suited me perfectly.
I have been a published author since 1985, when I sold my first article for twenty dollars. Since then, I have been writing and working as a journalist and researcher pretty much full time. I also have the ability to see the bigger picture, and as such, I have felt obligated to add my voice to those calling out from within the darkness that surrounds this planet.
What is research-journalism?
Research-journalism is the best way to describe what I do. I work completely independently, and as such, I focus on researching many relevant subjects, then I write about the subject being researched, here on my blog site, and I have been fortunate to have my work quietly make its' way around the Internet. Instead of getting an assignment from an editor, I select my own assignments, where I write about the things that I believe are important. I have been published online in every area of the world, and I work hard to continue to build my readership.
Simply put, most journalism is strictly the reportage of daily news. I call what I do research-journalism, and that is because my writing comes out of research more than it does from daily news, although I do some of that, as well. Most of my work comes out of discussions or questions that I receive from people in my private life. I then go out and research the subject(s) being discussed, as was the case with my financial white-paper entitled "Will You Survive The Coming Financial Crash?"
The Research-Journalism of Kentroversy Has Been Featured on the Following Alternative-News Websites:

"Kent Daniel Bentkowski is a research journalist who writes The Kentroversy Papers and specializes in studying topics such as conspiracy, the occult, deep politics, and alternative history. His web site is quite popular as his investigative manner and writing style are extremely thorough. He has a knack for explaining complex concepts and events in a way that isn't confusing or patronizing to those unfamiliar with the material. This is likely due to his extensive experience scrutinizing these issues." Occult and Qabalistic Symbolism in Rock Music (November 9, 2006)

"Congrats on your continued success! I listened to your interview about "Eyes Wide Shut" and was totally blown away. I knew you were good but now I have to put you on a higher pedestal. I forsee your schedule getting very busy in the future.
What makes you so interesting is your wealth of knowledge concerning so many subjects and the way you explain things so extensively (like children's toys---that was/is a great post). You don't focus on one area and the way you put the facts together with your research lays it all out there. But most of these things are all related as we know."

"Your latest article was indeed a very good read. I always wondered what Led Zeppelin's symbology stood for. On top of that, when you detailed the Beatles' primary objective being to wedge a generation gap between the youth and their parents in order to start the weakening of the family unit, I thought you were dead-on. I never really thought of the Beatles in that way, but they certainly achieved that goal. Music of the youth has pretty much always been objected to by parents, as it's different than their music, but that's what the rebellion of being young is all about. However, the fact that the Beatles turned-on a large portion of the kids to drugs was certainly different than, say, Buddy Holly." [Occult and Qabalistic Symbolism in Rock Music]

"Talking with you was a humbling experience. I sense in you a great courage, as you have been a fighter all your life. Too often we miss the real heroes we meet in our lives. You may not think of yourself in this way, but to me, you are a REAL HERO. My wife an I have the utmost respect and appreciation for you, and the battles you waged, and continue to wage."

"More pieces to the jigsaw that was the film Eyes Wide Shut.

I wish more people had the passion that you do in regards to how America is becoming "Bushica"... great work! I have started my own blog and my interest in this topic has been ever since I saw the movie "1984." I thought your research was very informative. I believe a lot of people have seen the signs of this, but like you said, prefer to be Mr. and Mrs. Joe Six-Pack, or as I like to call them, cows-a-grazing." [The Right To Remain Uninformed?]

"Without reservation, I can assure you, when it comes to brains, it's a compliment to be likened to Kent. But, the man, whether you like his analysis of the available facts or not, (which research includes much more verifiable information that IS NOT broadly published in the mass media or school books) is intelligent to the extreme ... in fact, Kent is an American patriot, in my assessment. I would be pleased to have a friend like Kent but the truth is we are merely occasional acquaintances."
--- Will Berkoff; June 2, 2005 (1:32pm)
It is THE BEST explanation of the situation that I have read to date. It is written in "plain" language and covers the entire spectrum of how the American public was lead, over a long period of time, through "dumbing down," to allow the foreign bankers to enslave them. If you really want to understand how and why the rug is going to be pulled, and by whom, I think this is one of the most comprehensive documents on this topic to date. "Will You Survive The Coming Financial Crash?"
--- Il_Bagattel; June 9, 2005 (8:18am)
"I just read "Will You Survive The Coming Financial Crash?" on Jeff Rense's site. I want to say THANK YOU! for opening more people's eyes to the reality of this world. In 1982, I had a neighbor warning me about the Federal Reserve and the evil it was about. I thought he was over-reacting! I paid no attention! 'How could it affect me?' I have since found out [how it affects me].
I wish you all the best! Love, peace, and prosperity --- and the TIME to enjoy them. Thank you! once again --- and may God bless you and yours!"

“An excellent and very readable white paper on this timely topic [Will You Survive The Coming Financial Crash?]. Learn how you and your children are being intellectually disarmed in public schools so that you'll be easier to manipulate in the coming planned financial meltdown. Well, obviously I've decided he views the world pretty much like I do --- that's why I posted his white paper. For me, Kent's paper wasn't earth-shattering as much as it was a nice articulation of a world view I already have.”

Really enlightening read!!
--- Omega2012; June 24, 2005 (5:07pm)
"I checked out the article [IBM Sells PC Business To Red China Concern] and your blog - very cool. This is fascinating; I can't believe how obvious it is that the people in power are sabotaging the nation right now, and they still have many capitalists' support. Do you know if there is a special term for corporations who operate outside of any nations' jurisdiction? I understand that through some of the past trade agreements many corporations now enjoy this status. It makes perfect sense. First, the companies are operating internationally while escaping much taxation through those trade agreements. They also escape the strict quality/operating standards of any of the nations.
So a few companies will be left controlling governments all over the world? Thus corporations become the new imperialists - shedding the archaic idea of weapons & war & using sneaky legislation and mergers to make government obsolete and corporate rule supreme? I say we let them go ahead with their plans, while we start planning the consumer's & laborer's rebellion. I think corporate rule would be easier to defeat than government rule. The new battleground must be the media. Hmmm.
Thanks for all the stimulation!!"

"Personally, I take any informaiton I encounter critically, or at least withold judgement of veracity, but I like having as many data points as possible regardless of where they fall on the spectrum of objective fact and misinformation. But your work consistently turns up heaps of data that gives me pause to reevaluate a number of my preconceptions about the American socio-political-economic landscape that have arisen from ignorance."

"Thanks for your article, it was one of the best analyses I've seen on the subject [Globalists Seek To Sanitize Internet]. I do differ on one point though, that Bush II is the worst president we've had. While I would agree that he has no competition for the worst in the last century, to date I don't think he could do better than third worst, behind Lincoln and Grant."
--- Steve Kimball; August 15, 2005 (5:30am)
"Just wanted to let you know your article on Rense.com is one of the best articles I've read on the 'agenda' for a while.
Congratulations ... hopefully this one will really hit home for some!
I'm now going to send the link to EVERYBODY I know. In my opinion, it is a MUST READ [The Microchip Agenda]. And, in case you are wondering, I found your article by taking a link from David Icke's news headlines page. A sincere thank you."
--- Name withheld; Queensland, Australia, August 26, 2005 (8:39am)
"I can see why so many people resist wanting to 'know' the reality of this HUGE, ghastly, global situation, but I don't why are they such cowards about this all their lives? I know from first-hand experience that once you know, you just can't un-know, and from that day on your basic understanding of life changes to the extent that nothing can ever be quite the same again. And it won't be until we fix the problems. But who wouldn't want to put right a situation that is SO obviously not right?
For me, first there was disbelief and resistance, then came a certain level of denial that helped me feel a little 'safe' again for a while. But all the time a part of my brain needed to know the truth, find out more, and get up to speed with the reality of it all. So I dived in and found out all I could, and it really hit home to me that this has been happening all around us, right under our noses, and we just haven't been 'seeing' all the tell-tale signs. I was suffering the old "oblivion is bliss" syndrome. "

AND NOW, SOME OF MY DETRACTORS . . .
Here are some of the negative comments that I have received, with my responses immediately after . . .
"OK, I agree with the premise of your article [Housing Bubble: Bankrupting Suburbia], however you lost credibility towards the end. Yes, there is a real estate bubble about to burst, however lets get our facts straight. Exactly when did GM declare bankrupcy? They have not. Also, since when have stocks been rated as "junk" status? Are you possibly referring to bonds? Someone posting an article about financial calamity should know better."
--- DVTester; July 19, 2005 (7:07am)
"GM had been declared a JUNK stock earlier this spring. As another reader has pointed out, GOOGLE the information and check for yourself. Also, I am a former investment banker during the 1980's and this is why I write about these subjects. The bankruptcy of GM and the near bankruptcy of FORD is the main reason why we are seeing these companies paying people to purchase their vehicles with $5,000 rebates and the like. As I correctly pointed out, when GM's common stock was declared JUNK, their stock was forced to be removed from the portfolios of many pension funds, which are required by law to sell off stocks in this condition. And yes, common stocks of corporations can be declared JUNK, and this is NOT purely for bonds."
