This was an absolutely ridiculous stunt. I have followed Alex Jones for some time now, on and off, but his actions in terms of this 'big
announcement' really make me question both his judgement and possibly even his mental stability.
To those are defending his actions, I must say most employ a childish belief and faith "give it time" etc etc. The ones defending Jones here are
likely his teenage and young fans. Sorry, but this stunt is an absolute failure and simply reprehensible. Let me summarize.
Jones has hyped this for days, biggest move of his career, etc. The morning of, when all his listeners have stayed up all night in excitement, they
post a FAKE interview without a disclaimer with Charlie Sheen. Most people read this and assumed that Charlie Sheen had interviewed the President,
and hoped it been captured on audio or on film.
Then 90 minutes later, a disclaimer is added , at the END of the article, saying it did not take place "yet" which only added to the confusion.
People begin posting their distaste at this stunt, and Jones has his mods lock all comments for the bull# reason of 'traffic'.
Then on the show -- he goes off on the guy who called in and said he was disappointed that it was not real.
What a bunch of bull#! How is this news? On his show he was trying to spin the stunt's failure that the 'news' was that Charlie Sheen was
demanding an interview with the President? Are you F---ing kidding me? No offense to Charlie Sheen, but an F list celebrity with public drug
problems demands an interview with the President? That's the highlight of Jones' career? I mean seriously, come the f--- on.
Jones has interviewed Ron Paul, Congressmen, etc and this is IT? I really wonder about his mental state. Either he is so far off in his own world he
did not realize this was a terrible idea that was destined to fail, or else he has deliberately (consciously or subconsciously) sabatoged himself.
In either way, this does not bode well for his credibility or for that of the general 'truth' movements.
ESPECIALLY because this 'interview' with the President was intentionally deceptive. The original archived page is up here:
Saying they accidently left off the disclaimer is absolute nonsense. That doesn't fly with me and it should not fly with anyone else.
I think the only question here is whether this is a matter of piss poor judgement or whether Jones is some sort of front designed to discredit and
sabatoge. I will cast my vote for the former-- that this was absolute piss poor judgement and even somewhat delusional. I meen, they thought this
nonsense would go viral? To accomplish what? Charlie Sheen interviewing the President on 9/11 Truth? Sheen is an ACTOR not a STATESMAN. In the
Roman Empire, actors were not worthy of public service.
Even if we got another investigation open, it would be another whitewash. The government is CORRUPT. The banks are CORRUPT. We are better off
monitoring and preparing for things like the flu pandemic, martial law, economic collapse, etc than trying to get an F list celebrity 20 minutes with
Seriously even if Sheen got the interview, what the f--- would that accomplish? Nothing! Most Americans watch reality shows and eat fast food. They
are completely demoralized. They wouldn't believe the truth even if Obama came out and said it, that's how far gone they are.
That said, Obama is the LAST person who would come out for 9/11 truth. Raising 'awareness' is incredibly naive and foolish. Jones is preaching to
the choir on the corners of the internet, but worse yet, he has alienated his own audience.
I really wonder whether there is something more to this, considering all signs point to # hitting the fan very soon. Make up your own conclusions,
but either way, Jones owes the public an apology , and he is not deserving of your blind idolatry.
