Apparently My Professor Knew Alex Jones

It turns out that my professor for an english class [specifically Print News Article Writing], is Dick J. Reavis, the guy who wrote The Ashes of Waco. I did not know he was into conspiracy type things at all, and I was meeting him about the term paper assignment that was due at the end of the semester. He asked me why I was taking the class, and I explained that I researched and wrote on conspiracy things, and I wanted to get better at it.

He wanted me to show him some of my writing so I showed him Abovetopsecret.com, and he was intrigued and revealed to me that he had written Ashes of Waco, which is apparently pretty much the primer on the Waco incident. We talked about other things such as the economic crash, world government, JFK, bilderberg group, etc.. and he was pretty knowledgeable about the conspiracy subjects.

As we talked he saw a thread about Alex Jones and asked me if I knew of the guy. I said yes, but I also stated that I was not sure about whether or not I trusted him for information. So then he gave me the following anecdote:


Apparently while doing his research on Waco, Alex Jones was the last person that he interviewed. He described Alex as a very powerful speaker. Alex showed him a charred piece of metallic remains with some sort of serial number looking thing on it and claimed that it was an incendiary device. Dr. Reavis described it as resembling a D-Cell battery. So Dr. Reavis on his own time took apart a D-cell battery and found that within there are some similar numbers, so he called up the company that produced it, I forgot what it was called, but it wasn't duracell or energizer, and asked them about the batteries and the numbers. They told him that it just marked production information. All in the mean time Alex Jones was telling everyone that the government had used incendiary devices..

So to trust Alex Jones or not?.. that is the question.

I'm not saying don't listen to him at all, I'm just saying don't blindly believe everything he says.

Well thats interesting. I like Alex's passion and his hard work apparently to bring us the truth, but in this world, no one knows what others agenda is, you know?.....

I dont believe about 50% and the other 50 is kind of materializing before our eyes. He does know a lot and has a lot of information.

Its that kind of world. Does Alex J have an agenda, or does your Professor???????

hmmmmmmmm

Hey no one is perfect.

Maybe Alex was wrong about the charred metal he had in his possession.

That does not mean no incendiary devices were used, it just means Alex did not have the remains of it.

Regardless of this, we all know Waco went up in flames. That is a fact.

BTW, your professor is awesome.


Thanks for sharing this story I enjoyed reading it.

Batteries can be used as part of an incendiary device actually. The other components could have been combustible and burnt up.

Alex makes his living off of conspiracy. The last thing in the world he want's, (business wise) is to solve "NWO, Tyranny" problems.

Not only that, he lies strait up about Bill Cooper...if anything he is an instrument to get people to revolt, so that they can inflict Marshall Law.



Something isn't right about him...Truth is free. Anyone trying to sell it to you, isn't telling it to you....simple.

Peace

As much as I dislike Alex Jones. He may have thought he had been attacked.

I remember sitting watchting tv, when i heard a lound bang, and instantly spotted a bullet sized peice of metal fly towards me. hitting me in the head. I thought I had been shot.

After feeling myself for holes, I look around and see half of small cell battery


It had been sitting near the radiator, and exploded, splitting it in half, and hitting me in the head.thing was so loud. scared the crap out of me

I think that Alex Jones certainly DOES have an agenda. We all have our own little agenda ourselves too. But. His main goal is to expose the global ruling class. But... it's not to say that he doesn't have an agenda... I think like with global warming... he just doesn't believe in it, or, when he talks about the new world order... I think he really does believe in truth. He just adds his agenda in there a little bit.

Alex Jones does not want martial law. I've seen people say that before. I don't think anyone really wants martial law unless they really hate this country. I know that's going against some conspiracies... yes there are military types in our government like John Yoo who would be in favor of martial law, but, I think the majority of people even FBI provocateurs (which I don't think Alex Jones is one) would want it.

I was a huge Jones fan, he got me into all this. I still listen to him, but now I take everything he says with a grain of salt.

I really believe he went off the deep end, or he knows he is lying to boost ratings. I've tried to tell him when he was wrong, my emails went ignored. Callers have tried to tell him he was wrong with proof, and he hangs up on them.

I think greed has taken over his real agenda.

No doubt he has designs on being the next POTUS???

He doesnt bother me at all, because everything he says can be verified through different sources and frankly you have to live in a cave to not see what is going on. I listen to him and another one i like is Quayle, although Steve i listen mostly for the entertainment value (he is damned funny)

but thats another thread.

Sounds like classic Alex Jones BS to me. Which does bring my mind a few questions 1) How did A.J. come into posession of it? I would imagine that the site was locked down. 2) How did even that part with any intelligable writting much less a discernable corrolate shape survive being a part of a incidiary device much less a most likely military grade one? Burning being what it is. 3) Is it impossible that the Branch Davidians had batteries of that type? That amongst other considerations MUST be taken into account. And if ANY are answered with anything simuliar to "trust" then a massive LACK of critical thinking is being purpatrated and perhaps some gullability.

I simply mean that Jones wither directly or indirectly is an instigator. He's a football coach, not an activist, and like I said, Conspiracy is Alex's bread and butter, he needs their to be NWO, he needs their to be Builderberg or he would have no photo ops, he'd be doing the "Drivetime Hour Traffic Report".

If you want to cut all the tail chasing in looking into conspiracy it is very easy, follow the money...it's the yellow bricked road or was when it was backed by gold and ends every dispute in the court of man.

Plain and simple...Alex is an entertainer and conspiracy is his stage.....Step right up...get your ticket for.....THE TRUTH.

The NWO announces itself with his mouth...

Peace
