Conspiracies that years ago I thought Alex was going too far with, are coming true today.

And what would those be!

I agree with you there. I used to listen to it every day, but now I just check in now and then for the reasons you stated.

I like his show and have found some good information. I don't purchase his products, but my dad bought me a water pitcher from his store that I actually love.

I think he's kind of out there and passionate about what he does and he's successful, but I don't think that makes him a swindler.

Just my opinion.

Great summary. The more I learn the less I know it sometimes seems.

All of the research I've done the past few years has forced me to detach a bit and look deeper spiritually so that I don't end up red faced, screaming, cracking up on public YouTube videos trying to "get the message out". I think it's possible to live in this world and still experience peace, but for me in order to do so I have to unplug from the Doom; and that includes the 11AM to 2PM infoDoom.

Who knows the truth. I don't. I just think he's legitimately and sometimes insanely trying to wake people up to a very sick world.

I used to follow him and his website for a while when I first joined ATS, but as I became slowly more knowledgeable of things I realize that he is just the low hanging fruit while traveling down the rabbit hole. The REAL conspiracies and problems worth looking into are more nuanced and not as noticeable. Alex Jones is just another distraction in a sea of distractions that hide the truth.

I think he's either a complete buffoon or he is a great actor playing the part of an over the top conspiracy theorist to simply make money or worse discredit the entire genre. The interview on Piers was the nail in the coffin for me.

I finally understood what you were saying, and my apologies, I was not calling anyone a shill!

I was expressing how people seem to call shill on any agitator that becomes successful. In Alex Jones case, I was thinking of someone earlier pointing out some connection AJ has to the government and also I hear people say he's CIA.

I didn't explain it very well, but that's what I was trying to say. Maybe if I used quotes-

God forbid someone have sponsors in order to reach the masses. "How dare you be successful!! SHILL!"

If you listen to him long enough either a few things will happen:

1. You'll slowly turn into a very scared, apprehensive and paranoid person

2. You'll see him repeat the same stuff over and over and get bored

3. You'll wear yourself out from all the stress his voice and sensationalism cause

4. You'll get annoyed that nothing he says ever seems to really happen

5. You'll buy one of his radios and find out it's cheap and breaks

So what would you say the real conspiracies are? I'm curious for your opinion.

A few current ongoing ones are the push from business interests trying to make people think this is and has always been a Christian nation. The creation, promotion, and execution of the war on drugs. Same for the war on terror. The promotion of ignorance in our classrooms including teaching the lie of American exceptionalism as real history. The push from business interests to push science denialism as a valid discussion to hold back progress in a few key scientific fields.

Those are just a few I can think of off the top of my head. Sorry I don't have any catchy buzzphrases like "chemtrails", "truther conspiracy", etc to call them.

You can see the influence of AJ on ATS with the fear threads and daily warnings of martial law sweeping the land for the last 8 years.The Feds are gonna lock you all up in Walmart. We must defeat THE NWO SCUM.

First reply to you blocked by gremlins. Trying again...

Yeah, there are a lot of conspiracies that are basically in the realm of information manipulation, including powerful interests, corporate and military suppressing science data, or misrepresenting it.

That's one thing Jones has right, the name Infowars really speaks to these times. The other thing I have to say I like about him is that he speaks to the fundamental insanity of the world as it is right now, even though he says things I disagree with. The people who don't offend anyone but wear happy masks afraid to look crazy by commenting on what's going on don't impress me.

Alex Jones is garbage but not just any old garbage, he's toxic and is dangerously beginning to affect others. Sure government has been (always) getting oppressive but there aren't army units patrolling the streets now or anytime in the near future... bad things actually happen because there's bad people everywhere, they aren't (almost never) always false flags to steal your freedoms. Same essential truth two very different interpretations. One outlook enables you to make better political choices, the other has you in a town hall confronting an army general, making a total ass of yourself... while turning your average person away from any talk of oppression.

Ya especially when they close the ones that are no where near the jade helm exercise, that is damn near proof they are going to do it!

If they left the wally world stocked it wouldn't be to bad for a bit.

All fun and games till some one sticks a broom handle in the foam noodle!

They will be put into timeout in the kids toy section.
ETA: Make that the household cleaning section, kids toys would give them something to do.

Ooooorrr, we can find the underground tunnels below said wal marts to thwart out captors at their own game!

Just to get on topic a little

When I first realized that the mainstream news was mostly social engineering and divide and conquer propaganda, I found a home with Alex Jones, and I liked him a lot. This was a long time ago, and back then he had a ton of good guests on his show, and he wasn't selling Tangy Tangerine or Vitamins back then.
The more I learned on my own and the more I researched, however made me realize that much of what Alex was saying were only half truths and often meant for click-bait rather than to truly inform people. If I didn't know better I might say that Alex Jones was a Trauma-based programmer who shocks his audience into fear and inaction.

If a rock was coming to hit earth.

Who do you think would let you know.

Alex or CNN

Deffo Alex.

The info would link directly to the 'Infowars - Asteroid Insurance' webpage.

My two cents:
Only kidding, nobody is forced to ever pay him a penny, so what if he sells stuff, his exuberant scaremongering method of imparting information is simply his sales technique. People toss huge sums at evangelists everyday and advertising itself is the art of selling you something you don't need.

I used to like the man but now he barely makes my notice and I hardly ever visit his websites anymore. He is a very divisive character apparently as evidenced by some of the posts here. I think that he acts just the right amount of crazy not to be too much of a threat to tptb.

The OP does seem quite enamoured with Alex or is Alex, or not! Who knows? The only thing crazier than Alex Jones is the real world itself. Its the price you pay for peeking under the curtain, I believe that seeing true reality as it really is would drive most people mad.

The world is certainly a bit more interesting with him in it though!
For some strange reason I don't understand, I see him now as a 'Gollum' type character. he has allowed his investigative and excitable nature and passion to consume him and mould him into someone he himself would probably be talking about a few years ago. But for all that I have a weird sense that he will have a part to play in the change that is fast approaching.
For good or ill.

Oh dang lol, I didn't know they jumped on the Daboo bandwagon. Wow, citing it as source material.

I wonder if this was before or after the infowars team was on social media bashing people for thinking exactly what this "article" explores.


So glad you posted this link!

i'm quite new here, but my whole life i have questioned things and how this # is run. what comes in mind is age old wisdom "divide and conquer/rule". i think alex jones is just contributing to that. i dont know who are the players, though i suspect some, but for this thread witch started with personal loveletter to this stereotypical ranting fearmongorer whose (and lets be honest here) predictions promise a lot but lack in delivery...
And like so many before me have stated only thing alex is really giving to ct community is maybe few "awaken" people though awaking to joneses "fackts" is something i personally see as playing the role "THEY" want YOU to play.
does alex do this on purpose? this hate- and fearmongering? i personally dont think so. i think the guy is what he seems to be. not very intelligent, quite gullible, full of (heavily biased) fears, defending some values he propably sees right and just, but lacking the view to see the big pickture and how hes actions and accuses actually bring much harm to agenda he tries to fight for.

I gotta admit though -- he does what he does exceptionally well. I don't think there's another personality that could pull the same dog and pony routine for so long and still make it work.

I think a BIG part of his success is his perfect radio voice. His voice lends enough "credibility" to his show the first time you hear it. He may be discussing conspiracies and doom porn, but the way he sounds make it feel like its more mainstream than it is.

I get told all the time I ought to do radio. I looked into it and have some friends in the business. They all told me to stay away unless I wanted to be miserable and poor. I guess its like Hollywood, very few people in radio make any decent money.

Maybe I ought to do voice over work. I think I could handle that.
