Just think for those out there who have no idea about any of this... They were put off from free thought. The status quo won that night. And that's sad. It won by such a blow out, if it were sports I'd say the fix was in and Jones was on Morgans payroll making him look like cool calm collected genius.


You'd have to pay someone to make Piers look cool, calm, collected or a bleedin' genius. I'm not sure there's enough money on the planet.

I'm not pro Morgan, but show me one clip, just one, where he mocks a guest on his show because of their voice....


Rambunctious? I'd call it a temper tantrum.

Alex is passionate about what he believes to be happening in this country. He has the facts to back himself up, he looks at the bigger picture of what could happen, not what will happen. I call it a trend line looking at the facts.

Consider what has been happening over the years, removal from the gold standard, NAFTA, Patriot Act, Homeland Security Act (DHS), (TSA), Unnecessary Wars, FEMA Camps, Guns forcible taken in New Orleans…(that was a test) What will be next? Oh, Now comes gun control… and that’s the point, where will it stop?

The man has his opinions, His strategy may not be that good… but still glad to see somebody stand up for what he thinks and believes is happening.

Look at whats happened... No Gold Standard got us in Debt, NAFTA, took our jobs, Patriot Act took our privacy, TSA shows how far they will go, they proved it with New Orleans gun confiscation , now they begin the attack on the constitution… how far before you say enough is enough?

I watched the loudest mouth in internet retail. He went on Piers Morgan and set back responsable gun owners 100 years. He looked just as they said. Un-hinged. Piers Morgan needs to be deported that I agree too. But the MSM did it's job well. It painted gun folks to be like l Alex Jones. Alex " The Hack " Jones does not speak for me.

I don't want a raving idiot with the veins bulging out his neck and forehead to get my point across. I know it's his style, if that's what you want to call it. It's not helping. Not at all. Alex Jones is a hack. CNN will replay his tyrade over & over & over. And a certain number of people will have this image burned into their brains. They will walk away thinking we are all like this nutcase king of internet retail.. No Alex Jones does not speak for me........ " And shall not be infringed upon" those words speak for me. Take it as you will.

If I close my eyes AJ still comes across as an hysterical rectum having a really bad debate with a spunkbubble.


I wasn't suggesting that in the audio-only version my impression of his performance was positive or even did anything to advance his mission or position on the issues he is allegedly passionate about; I was just stating that without the physical communication elements that Jones utilized on Morgan's show or seeing the aggressiveness towards Morgan that came across to the viewer given the close proximity of the two men, Jones seemed to come across in a somewhat different manner in an audio-only experience.

Quite the opposite, I'd call it one step forward, three steps back. He had a national forum to finally show the world that things aren't as they seem. You don't wake someone up by mocking, ridiculing, and essentially shoving them off the bed in the morning.

15 May 2004

Piers Morgan was sacked as the editor of the Daily Mirror last night as the newspaper's board made an unreserved apology for publishing fake pictures of British troops torturing Iraqi prisoners.

Morgan, 39, one of the most controversial tabloid editors of recent times, was dismissed after an afternoon-long board meeting at the Mirror's tower-block headquarters in Canary Wharf, east London.

He was immediately escorted from the building by security staff.

www.telegraph.co.uk...


He's already been sent to the hoax bin. Why even talk reality with the man. He has proved he will lie to make his point. Hard to believe people would even listen to Piers at this point.

AJ works with rant. That makes it hard for some to listen, whether valid or not.

This whole interview was worth zero.

I'm no fan of Morgan and would contribute to a legal fund to keep him out of the UK.

However, Alex is a very poor performer when he has an opponent. He often devolves into childish name calling or fixating on one tangental thought or issue and repeating it. It's a shame because some of the info he breaks is very important. And he is great riffing (riffing not ripping) off a guest and pulling in all the strands for a larger perspective. I just wish he wasn't such an arse, didn't exaggerate so much or make stuff up.

edit to add: can someone please be so generous as to youtube it for us interested foreigners to watch tomorrow.

Nice try. We are sending him back !

Okay I regress..it was a tantrum........I have not heard PM do that but I have seen him lose his cool too. I thought journalists were supposed to be calm cool and collected, ya know what I mean? I bet CNN got what they hoped for.

What may have been a shrewed choice of interview tactic for Piers is pretty standard practice on such things as Newsnight. I simply don't get why Piers rubs American's up the wrong way so much. He's not even particularly good at being a smarmy git. How in hell did CNN even give him a job when all he could do in this country other than cover his backside over phone hacking was to interview #ty celebrities about their over indulgant biographies and judge dogs dancing. Why do you lot care so much what the chubby spoilt numpty says?. He's as much real credibility as a Hampster he resembles.

Losing ones cool is human. Id be willing to bet, if he does it, more often than not its calculated for ratings and making it a better interview.

However, Jones went off the gates with his cool lost. And perhaps it was a calculation. If it was, its time to rethink things. Mocking an entire country by poorly impersonating a British reporter is just bush league. On his own, show? Whatever, cool. On another person's show, there's just an expectation to act like an adult, or your point will be lost.

I cringed when he brought up WTC 7. Not because I thought he was wrong, quite the contrary, but because I didnt want such great points to be clumped in with his temper tantrum. I remember saying to myself "Great, this sets asking questions about 9/11 way back to anyone who is seeing this. Thanks Alex."

So I dont care what one's stance on guns are, it doesnt bother me, but what does bother me is that this showing by Jones is accepted by our underground world of alternative thinking. If we want our points to be taken seriously, we need to act like serious adults.

Alex Jones has done more for gun control advocates with that little melt down then anyone else has in the past few weeks.

This man, this lunatic that is clearly mentally unfit, owns 51 guns, many he admits are high powered. Who in their right mind would want someone of this mental state to own 51 guns?

Alex Jones is by far the biggest idiot I have ever seen, and the fact that people are defending him and saying he is right just proves to the general public that conspiracy theorist are crazy paranoid people. And now people can think the same of pro-gun people (which I am thankful for).

So thanks Alex Jones, your paranoid crazy rant has done more to promote gun control than any other person could have.

Is he passionate about what he believes or did he see a niche audience and an opportunity to tap into the spending power of this audience?

I believe that in the beginning of his radio career up until shortly after the Obama Deception he was a passionate believer in his alleged mission. In the last 4 or 5 years I know I've seen a dramatic shift in Jones' purpose-- with the hawking of sketchy health products and weight loss schemes, the magazine and pushing the highly questionable health expert Mike Adams who is not a doctor and has no verifiable credentials; it seems that Jones has become most concerned with two things: Making money any way possible and focusing on everything Alex Jones and not advancing his alleged overall mission/purpose and goals forward.



Consider what has been happening over the years, removal from the gold standard, NAFTA, Patriot Act, Homeland Security Act (DHS), (TSA), Unnecessary Wars, FEMA Camps, Guns forcible taken in New Orleans…(that was a test) What will be next? Oh, Now comes gun control… and that’s the point, where will it stop?


Yes these are all important issues, issues that many of us are passionate about; issues that every American should be passionate about. Herein lies the issue with Jones: Whenever he has an opportunity to communicate to an audience who are not familiar with his alleged mission and is not knowledgeable about many of these issues and educated about them the same way those of us who read ATS, Jones consistently fails to use these platforms to educate these audiences about the issues; he communicates to these audiences the same way he does on his radio show and the uneducated audience either doesn't understand what he is saying or think he is a crazy person. If Jones could adapt his communication style when appearing before these audiences and entice them to sample his program, he would be quite successful in advancing the issues he is allegedly passionate about.

I think that Jones was most effective in both advancing important issues and raising awareness when he took the time and effort to produce several wonderful DVDs a year. Almost all of these DVDs were catalysts to open the viewers eyes to larger issues and encourage the viewer to research any questions they had about a DVD after viewing it. I must say that in my experience fact checking many of the points highlighted in Jones' DVDs I was surprised when more than 90% of the things I thought were fabrications turned out to be true.

I don't know why he stopped focusing on producing these DVDs and instead chose to focus on a useless nightly newscast, hawking weight loss bollocks and other products which require little or no effort on his part and just tap into the spending power of his current audience.

I don't think he was trying to impersonate Piers, he just inadvertently let slip that he watches too much Downton Abbey.
Sorry Alex, most of us don't sound like that, but I'm sure all us Brits on ATS will chip in a quid each if you say SHERBET for us.

Alex Jones has the liberals like Bob Beckel back on their heels. Leave our 2nd Amendment alone!
Today the libs are backing up.
This isn't working. Let's just call off the attack on the 2nd Amendment.

Hilarious, Alex Jones was real good though, he acted crazy in order to not fall into the traps carefully orchestrated by the Piers Morgan show beforehand, also using the same weapon against Piers that he himself like to use on every guest in recent memory including Ron Paul: Constantly trying to cut off and asking about the little details in an attempt to sound more knowledgeable.

Didn´t work on Alex though

Long Live Alex Jones! Long Live our 2nd Amendment!
For more inspiration go watch the movie Lincoln.
It should get Best Motion Picture at the Academy Awards.
