Alex Jones, Radio Host- Information Gatherer or Total Crackpot

    The other day on youtube, I was listening to Alex Jones.  He was talking about America becoming more totalitarian with its supposed FEMA concentration camps and the lessening of the democratic process.  Mr. Jones also discussed the alleged Bohemian Grove club where prominent people meet.   Mr. Jones further elucidated that there is a hidden agenda in America and hinted that the NWO(New World Order) is coming soon to America.   What is your take on Alex Jones?  Is he being prophetic or has he lost all semblance of sanity?

      Alan Jones is just a complete idiot, once he had a show on mental health and just abused several people who called in to talk about their depression etc. etc. The guy is just not worth listening to.

    I'll just say this: back in 1999, he was going on and on about Y2K....on Jan 1, 2000--all the power grids would supposedly go down. He was screaming about it for a long long time....and selling these survivor packets, with food and supplies to use in your "bunker." "Store up on water and food" he said, for months and months.

    Well-----Jan 1, 2000 came, and no block-out, computers worked fine...nothing.

    It's the same with this other writer, Kirwan. He has good articles, but he predicts things that don't happen, so.....

    In the "trust-a-bility" area, they're suspect. I think the old adage is true: give them a little truth within a lot of lies...or give them a lot of lies and throw in a little truth.

    I don't trust him.

      Mr. Jones has just critiqued the movie, THE HUNGER GAMES.  His assertion was that the movie is the harbinger of things to come in America.   He even invented another conspiracy theorist to discuss how America society will resemble the situation of THE HUNGER GAMES in either the near or far future.  The more I listen to him, the more dumbfounded I am!   They let anyone have a radio show these days!  Let us now go to the Twilight Zone!  Oh no, we are in it!

        I used to really love him myself. Because we all know that things are upside down in this world.

        But the "alter" world is a tricky maze!

        Who is telling the truth? Who is for real??

        Who knows?!?

      Y2K like so many other "prophecies" are averted because people take action to change themselves within a given situation. It is these very actions that stop the prophecies from happening.  Somebody has to be the messenger of the potential so that others will change the situation...but, it is vital what the response is...will responses be good or bad for the overall situation? that is up to the people.

      it's like the whole Ron Paul thing. People like him because he is talking about the corruption of government and those that "run" the economy...but it is going to be about how the people respond that will change things.

    There are plenty of people in radio and television yelling and screaming about the same things. Some people prepare themselves, others don't. Remember Katrina? Facing a know hurricane, people decided that they would be OK. Hurricanes come and go. They could make it. When the worst thing happened, those same people blamed the government for not warning them, or helping them. Alex may seem crazy to the people who aren't listening to his message, just like the Katrina victims. Sure, the millennium bug didn't happen, but it was a real threat. The world managed to fix the problem, so nothing happened. The New World Order is in the works too. I find it hard to believe people can't see that. If enough people believed the threat, we could fix it too. Well, look how many people ignored the hurricane warnings. So when our world falls into chaos and the New World Order takes over our lives, who we gonna call then? Our government won't exist. We will be under the control of tyrants with Satanic motivations. The way to bring about the New World Order is to destroy the world's economy, starting with the United States. The Manchurian candidate is in control now. It's just a matter of time. But whatever you do, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. You may see the truth.

    drbillfannin:I will admit Alex gets wound up but like you I see where things are going.All it takes is for one to step back,and be objective and read the laws that have been passed in the last ten years.Especially the laws that have been passed almost unanimously by Congress in the last twelve months.People just don't seem to understand that the Constitution is gone,nothing more than a relic in a museum that represents a by-gone era.It's as if the majority of the public have lost the ability to read.Like I said earlier Alex gets wrapped up.When the man sites government documents and you can go and read them yourself how can you fool yourself into thinking it's all a hoax?I've only recently even watched or listened to his show,but I've been following the governments move to take away our rights since 9/11.Also I agree totally that if more people would at least investigate current events instead of pretending that it can't happen here we could stop this before things get really tough.Alas,the complacency and denial factors have proven a useful tool in this attack on the Constitution and by all I see too many people can't rise above the fear or get past in self interest.I'm afraid before it's over things will seem very similar to the twilight zone quite literally.If any have taken offense to my post I would like to apologize and let it be known that I am an American and whether you agree with me or not I have no ill will for it is your God given right to have your opinion and views.As it stands that right has seriously been weakened by current events and only if we as a nation unified can we restore what our sons,fathers,grandfathers,and earlier bled the ground red to defend.It is the duty as a patriotic citizen to pay attention to the issues that affect your civil liberties,if we don't all those who died to give us those liberties died for nothing.

    I think we could all benefit from becoming crazy like Alex Jones. We've been trained to believe that blank-faced non-journalism that comes from mainstream news is the right way to do things, and anything different is shunned before the facts are settled. In fact, Alex's apparently 'crazy' behaviour is appropriate to the state of the world we live in. Most people walk around in an absolute daze and perceive that as normal and acceptable behaviour. People like Alex Jones and I do not. I don't agree with everything he says but analyse the evidence given to support his claims and he'll start to sound less crazy.

    But the problem is.....many of these people who are now saying Obama is bringing on the NWO, are the same people who call me a tin-foil hat lunatics for saying 9/11 was an inside job!

    See how it works? 
    And now I'm supposed to take their claims as the gospel truth, after years of pounding my head against a wall.

    .....forgive me if I don't trust anyone who wants to tell me all about Obama, and doesn't think 9/11 was an inside job.

      If you keep tarring people with the same brush you're going to miss out. I believe that Obama is another face of the NWO just like Bush was, and also 9/11 was an inside job.

        Didn't I say "many of these people"? Not all. In fact, most of the bloggers I admire say the same thing: Obama is the continuation of Bush.

        I just don't think so. Period. No one has a lock on "the truth". We can only do the best we can as thinking individuals.

    That is the whole purpose of the Bible, IMO. It's meant to be a self-fulfilling prophecy.
    Because...those in the know--who keep it all from us-- know that a cosmic shift happens every 26,000 years. They know it, and want to guide it their way.
    Did you ever see The Bible Codes on The History Channel? Fascinating! All these Notradamus prohecies, and actual historic incidents, are coded in the Bible. The more we all believe, the more they are likely to come true.
    And since our minds have power, all they have to do is keep us believing a certain way, and they can overtake the cosmic change to their advantage.

    That's why the crazies are out now, IMO. They are drastically trying to foster all this hate and misery and discord. All so we miss the wonderful possibilties that happen only every 26,000 years!

    That is why the Kochsters call it a war of all wars....the most important election of our time, etc. It IS the most important...it's the ending of that long aeon, and the beginning of a new one.

    It can go either way....WE make it happen!

      The Bible, Jewish Bible, and Koran, are meant to be teaching aids and not to be taken literally. Although they really need updating. Right now if you removed all the bigotry and death threats, it would only be a couple pages long.

    I don't see what is so incoherent in Jones's language. Firstly I am starting to believe that there is a coalition of the superpowers to at least reduce our freedom of speech. That terror is/will be the weapon if we protest for any of their "proposed" policies. When the people are shouting for more social reforms, governments shut off the door. In Greece, for instance, because of their government's involvement in the bankruptcy of their country, people have to suffer a policy of austerity meaning that they have to suffer for their mistakes. Furthermore, Europe is aiming at right wing presidencies, Germany and co are hoping that French people will vote another disastrous Sarkozy's mandate.

    "What is going here?

    War is coming.  The Monster is attempting to get rid of and/or silence anyone who is against the corrupt criminal warmongers that rule this world.

    It is coordinated, performed by agents both covert and overt.  And it is not over."

    Oh yeah...that's why I think Madonna's new album is named MDNA. DNA they're trying to capture--prevent our acceleration: higher being jump. LOVE.

    She's an agent of the wrong side I think.

      What everyone seems to be missing here is that there is indeed NWO coming and Obama is definitely involved, but the real power comes from, however you want to define it, Satan. It isn't just the Bible that foretells a spiritual influence directing the path of mankind toward destruction; there are many belief systems that have similar stories. It really doesn't matter who the United States president is, unless the majority of the people change their arrogant self-centeredness and become more Christ-like, Satan's power over our leaders will continue until the anti-Christ takes over. After that, we all know what is coming.
