AJ has simply been reading the elites own playbook for many years
He twists things to support his claims. As we agree, the indicators of a collapse were there for anyone with foresight to see.
I believe the point being made, however, is that Alex DID see it, and as you say, he saw it coming because he read the indicators correctly. Unlike
the talking heads in the MSM, unlike Rush Limbaugh and the assorted denizens of conservative talk radio, unlike most newspaper columnists.
Alex Jones doesn't claim to be revealing "insider" information. He pulls some of his facts from FOIA documents, but most of it from buried and
forgotten stories in America's daily newspapers, much of it right off page one. You may claim that he is "twisting" those stories to put his own
spin on them, but that is hardly a treacherous or criminal act. We all do it with everything we watch and read.
Above all, Alex is a dot-connector. He recognizes common threads and themes in the news and then researches official, reputable sources to trace
those themes backward in history to find what context they have, whether they are common events or unusual, and then projects that information forward
into the near future. Certainly, he looks for the stories that are incongruent with the insipid, feel-good pablum trotted out on the television every
day, but that is what any thinking person would do. Unless of course one believes that everything going down in the world is just as the TV tells it,
in which case one would naturally ignore stories that stick out like a turd in the tapioca bowl.
He does shout and rant, but then again, there is much to be angry about in the world. Much to be angry about in this country of ours as well. He is
disturbed by both the events of today and the historical contexts that validate them, and he seeks to inform and warn his listeners and viewers of
dangers that may lie ahead. Is he right all the time? Of course not. No one who identifies trends ever is. But his documentation and historical
fact-finding is spot on. Each of us will filter that information through our own experiences and assumptions, and often come up with different
projections of what it means. If we don't, then we become mindless fools of one sort or another, but mindless fools all the same.
Have any of you naysayers done the hours of time-consuming research to refute his facts, or discolor his historical documentation? If so, then
you've failed to show any evidence of it here. Alex Jones is no more or less than a source of information to help us contextualize a rapidly
changing and increasingly disturbing world. Where he differs from most, including William Cooper, is that he provides documentation for his ideas and
provides a way for his supporters and detractors to understand why he says the things he says.
