Media personalities often obfuscate their ages, and Jeff Rense is no exception. We could find no indication that Rense has ever revealed his age, either on his radio show or on his website, Rense.com.
He has, however, posted a link to an article which discusses his age. The link is in a section of the website called, “Newest Zionist Hit Piece Libel Attacks On Jeff.”
(The astute reader will notice that whenever information is revealed about Jeff Rense that he doesn’t want anyone to know, he claims “Zionists” are “attacking” him and that the statements are “libel.”)
The article discussing his age is entitled “The REAL Hidden Jeff Rense” and was written 16 February 2012 by Lorie Kramer, Rense’s friend and defender.
Kramer wrote the article in response to one that Henry Makow had published on his website two days earlier called “The Hidden Jeff Rense.”
In his article, Makow states that Rense is 66 years old in 2012, i.e. born 1946, but doesn’t give the source for this information. Kramer, in her article, refutes Makow’s statement vigorously, if not eloquently:
66?? Seriously, you are saying he’s 66 years old? I would love to see you source that because I am 58 and I am a few years older than Jeff. I have seen his birth record, he’s not 66. He’s not even 60. I checked that out over 11 years ago when we found out that he has a family name that is in my family by marriage. Just because one has gray hair doesn’t make one over 60….66!?!?!?!? Wow. Way to pile on the decades. Henry, that’s one big fat stinkin’ turd, right there.
Kramer asserts that she has seen Rense’s birth record, and that she, at 58, is “a few years older” than Rense. This means she is putting his age at approximately 55 or 56, and therefore his birthday in 1956 or 1957.
So which is it? Was Rense born in 1946 or 1956/57?
We were able to verify Rense’s birth year, using online sources.
Rense attended Adolfo Camarillo High School in Camarillo, California, and graduated in 1963. He would have been 17 or 18 when he graduated, making his birth year 1945 or 1946.
Rense’s photo is in the Adolfo Camarillo High School yearbook–called El Alacran (The Scorpion)–in 1962 and 1963.
An interesting bit of trivia is that Rense was named “Most Flirtatious” in the 1963 yearbook.
We don’t know if Rense is aware that Lorie Kramer has incorrectly stated his age in her article–which is linked from the Rense.com website–but as he believes so passionately in “honest journalism”, we hope that he will make an effort to set the record straight, now that the truth has come to light.
