If I stacked all of Alex Jones' predictions that never came to pass on top of each other, I could climb to the stars.
This guy is a snake-oil salesman, peddling survival gear and gold to paranoids.
Why is anyone still taking this clown seriously?

This is such BS. Nothing will happen. You can tell by the questions "Jim" is asking that it's scripted. Alex Jones is a fake and ex-CIA conman.edit on 1-7-2012 by Scope and a Beam because: (no reason given)
Support for civil authorities was contingent upon the ability of local and state forces to suppress violence and restore order efficaciously. If Bandholtz determined that civil officials were ineffective, or even negligent by releasing prisoners whom they knew would contribute to new disorder, the general was to detain the prisoners in his custody "as long as necessity exists." In cases where the military refused to turn prisoners over to civil officials, Bandholtz was to detain those prisoners as ordinary military prisoners under the provisions of the Court Martial Manual. In each case, however, Weeks required the general to forward a full report of the circumstances.37
By September 1, private airplanes had dropped copies of Harding's proclamation on the belligerents. Each side, now totaling an estimated ten to twenty thousand men, refused to comply: the Logan County force was unwilling to relinquish the commanding heights of Blair Mountain, and the miners feared that their withdrawal would precipitate new raids by Sheriff Chafin and Captain Brockus. Arriving in Charleston at 11:30 a.m., General Bandholtz carried with him a second proclamation that reflected the belated realization of President Harding and Secretary of War Weeks that the 1866 decision in Ex Parte Milligan after the Civil War prohibited "martial law . . . where the courts are open and in the proper and unobstructed exercise of their jurisdiction."38

Weird, I tried to watch the video and it just shows the black square with the Youtube link on the bottom. I clicked on that and it doesn't play on Youtube either. So I clicked on several other Youtube videos and none of them play. No controls or anything appear.
I thought it was a Flash problem but every other video site I tried works fine. I uninstalled and re-installed Flash just to make sure, but no luck. Is this happening to anyone else?
This video sounds interesting, although I know Alex Jones is a scaremonger, he does speak a lot of truth.

Hey, I remember that! But I never heard about the hoaxed / joke part of it. The guy was very convincing, but I remember thinking, yeah, but he could be an actor. I would really appreciate any sources for both the call and the confession - that would be great! I have seen the original call on youtube, but not the "oh and by the way I punked you!" part. It didn't set well with me then, and this doesn't set well with me now. "Jim" may just be fanning the flames of his own imagination, for all we know...
