In its own words:
"The purpose of the Institute for the Study of Globalisation and Covert Politics (ISGP) has been to inform the world about the existence of an entire network of private, highly influential but low-profile organizations which have had great influence on how the world is shaped."
Constitutes: Website,  independent media

Main focus: deep state, deep state milieux
The site contains only about two dozen major articles but some are near book-length. They are in-depth studies of the organisations and issues identified in their titles and all are scrupulously researched, referenced and footnoted. Much of the information they contain is very difficult - if not impossible - to find elsewhere. The articles about the Belgian Dutroux affair are beyond shocking; not only for the almost unbelievable depravities they describe, but for their extensive evidence of the systematic, calculated involvement in those depravities by groups enjoying the protection of the highest levels of western society, not to mention Russia. It is not a subject for the faint-hearted.

Institute for the Study of Globalisation and Covert Politics (ISGP) is a website set up by Joël van der Reijden in 2004. Its main focus is van der Reijden's original research into deep state milieux. It has published a number of scoops, including publishing the first internal documents from Le Cercle. Altough endorsed by hundres of scholars, professors and civil servants from various governments, it has not faced one lawsuit or CCM segment, something JVDH called suspicious as he suggesst TPTB don't want to give him any attention and lawsuits against sites like Infowars are distractions.[1]


The author of the site, Joël van der Reijden, estimated in January 2018 that he had spent around 20,000 hours on the site over the past 14 years.[2] By its own account, ISGP published articles on Le Cercle, the 1001 Club and the Pilgrims Society before there was any mention of them on Wikipedia.[3]

Archival by Wikispooks

In early 2010 Joël van der Reijden began to hint that the site was at risk and advised supporters to make backups of it with a view to being able to mirror it if, for whatever reason, it was taken it down. In late September 2010 the site was taken down, leaving just a single splash page with brief information and contact details. However, a zip file of the entire site was made before it was taken down and made available on Wikispooks.

In later years Joël made a lot of major additions to the archived site, both in terms of articles and layout. For practical reasons, partly involving long-term financial guarantees, he decided not to restart the site at an independent location. Also, rebuilding the site to its 2007-2010 status would be impossible due to censorship by the major alternative media outlets which, since late 2007, was total.

2014 Relaunch

In December 2014 Joël re-launched the site at, where it was regularly updated with new articles and revisions. On August 5, 2016, the site's url was moved to

Google censorship

As of January 2018, Alexa reported that around 1/3 of ISGP's traffic comes from Google, with a major decline in overall visits visible over 2017, despite a great number of site additions.[4] Joël van der Reijden has charged that Google has specifically penalised his site and written in detail about the evidence.[5]

In addition, since April 2017 Google has been blocking ISGP's Beyond the Dutroux Affair article. As of January 2018, a Google search for "Beyond The Dutroux Affair" did not return any results from ISGP, at least not in the top 100 hits, although an original article with this title exists there, and is cited by many of the other results returned by such a search (ISGP has removed about 50 unsanctioned copies of the article after requests by van der Reijden). For comparison, ISGP's "Beyond the Dutroux Affair" was the #2 hit on Bing[6] and Yahoo[7], #4 on DuckDuckGo[8], #8 on Yandex[9], #9 on Gigablast[10] and #51 on Baidu.[11] StartPage only listed 81 results for that search, but ISGP was not among them.

Spooks monitoring

Joel wrote in 2018 that "ISGP has received a handful of threats over the years, but cases never went anywhere. A lawyer of billionaire arms trafficker, Cercle visitor, and reported MI6 asset Nadhmi Auchi once threatened the site over some copied mainstream article that the original newspaper already had retracted. I summarized the article, including the accusations, kept in a reference, and that was that. If anything, it was an improvement. I doubt the lawyer was happy, but I never heard from him again.

In 2016 or so a Belgian lawyer sent a cease-and-desist order around on behalf of a family member who wasn't happy that his relative was mentioned in the X-Dossiers. Some went into debate with the lawyer. I ignored him (or her). And that was that.

One legal threat, maybe around 2010, was particularly odd, if not hilarious. It involved ISGP listing Belgian castle owner Pierre Ferbus in its X-Dossiers "the accused" list. This person's lawyer complained that I had "outed" him as a homosexual. I had to read my translation pretty carefully to pick up on this "accusation", most likely due to the more relevant "sectarian or satanic activities at [Ferbus] Valmont castle in Merbes-Le-Chateau" being described - the source of which apparently were three different police reports. I wrote back a few lines, saying everything stays put, and that there's zero shame in being a homosexual in this time and age. As usual, the lawyer never got back to me. But it's twilight zone every day with ISGP."


A Quote by ISGP

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
