My main problem with Jones and his publications is that they are so transparently full of lies and BS.
In 'Endgame' for instance, I stopped counting his major distortions of the truth when they reached 120+. Right at the beginning he makes the
ridiculous and laughable proclamation that after The Battle of Waterloo, the Rosthchilds 'bought up the British economy' after spreading rumours
that Bonaparte had in fact won and so caused stock values to collapse. There is absolutely no truth to this. In 1815, 99% (the percentage is accurate)
of the British economy was in private hands and not even for sale, and of the insignificantly small part which had publicly traded shares there is no
evidence that any Rosthchild or anyone connected to them made any purchases, nor that stocks fell that year.
Shortly after that he's at it again, claiming that 'King Edward 8th was forced to abdicate because of his sympathies with Hitler/the Nazis.' Total
BS. Any student of history knows that Ed 8 CHOSE to abdicate so he could marry the American divorcee Wallis Simpson, and that they chose to live out
their life quietly in France in married bliss and for obvious reasons were careful to have no children.
Don't know about 'The Bilderburgers.' Suspect paranoid CT-ers with too much time on their hands build them up into some kind of bogeyman at whose
sinister door they can lay all the world's problems, when in fact they are a bunch of harmless old-money has-beens with little real influence over
anything and certainly no 'global agenda.' They don't have even one tenth of the money, power or control over the global economy as, say, the top
100 new Russian or Chinese multi-billionaire entrepeneurs, that's for sure. And these Chinese and Russian billionaires, who exercise major control
over their governments and national policies and are now the dominant force in the global economy, have nothing to do with 'The Bilderburgers.'
Wake up folks. Jones is a ranting propagandist with his own agenda. Think fer yerselves, why dontchya.
While I can't speak for others in this thread, I can tell you, very honestly, that I have NOT based any assertion I have made on Alex Jones'
Frankly, I recoil from the 'media personality cult' and once a contributer in the field of CT becomes a 'headliner' I tend to tune out. This is
because I feel they begin to see themselves as more than they are, or should be. Alex Jones is NOT a source of information, he is a reporter of
information - this is my opinion of course.
Insofar as your comments on the history of the ascent of the Rotschild empire and the fate of King Edward, your opinions are based on 'everyone
knows.' Really? I suggest that you have not even seriously considered the sources of 'everyone knows.' The Higher Education system has been
suspect ed of 'molding' accepted history for more than a century, just because 'they' say so, most definitely does NOT make it so.
Original research is not an easy task, but if you were to engage in some you might find that you will become uncomfortable with some of the editorial
liberties your 'everyone' has taken with history. People, not necessarily you, are often quite ignorant of just how 'malleable' history can be to
the established historian. Find a professor, and ask if he or she agrees with everything history says 'i.e. everyone knows.' I would be surprised
if you found a total conformist anywhere among them.
There were severe reservations regarding the German-royal connection, these were not available for 'public consumption' can you imagine if they had
been? - We know only from the insiders who wrote memoirs - should we disregard their personal accounts because it doesn't fit with what 'everybody
knows'? The Waterloo Battle story was QUITE real, just because you can't imagine how it could be turned for Rotschild profit doesn't mean it
wasn't. While you proffer that 99% was in private hands you fail to mention how many hands those were, also, what was the actual capital amount in
question and who ended up losing economic relevance while the Rotschild family's grew. There is no simple way to enumerate the impact it had because
if it had been a simple matter it probably would have been easily thwarted.
I nevertheless agree that Alex Jones appears somewhat self-serving, but I accept this as the price for focusing on a single person to explore these
unusually secretive and high-powered gatherings. I don't expect anything from his work, and should it prove something - then so much the better.
But to sit on our hands while 'every knows' is the phrase of the day is a bit too trusting for me. Too many agendas, too many power brokers, too
many people dedicated to aggrandizing themselves and lusting for power and wealth exists for me to just assume - 'it's no skin off my nose' let it
