He speaks frequently with Trump, worked as a paid adviser to his campaign last year, and helped place operative Paul Manafort in a top campaign position.

Stone’s Stop The Steal Website: “Four Days Of Non-Violent Demonstrations, Protests And Lobbying Delegates Face To Face.” Stone’s StopTheSteal.org website touts plans to protest from July 18 to 21 in Cleveland:

That’s why we have called for a STOP THE STEAL MARCH ON CLEVELAND- July 18 to 21- four days of non-violent demonstrations, protests and lobbying delegates face to face. We must send the GOP a clear signal thru our sheer numbers that we will not vote Republican nor work for the ticket if Donald Trump is robbed. The insiders plan to totally ignore the will of the voters and use legal trickery and bribery to try to steal. Incredibly bribing delegates for their votes is NOT illegal.

We plan the biggest Rally in Cleveland history. We must own the streets. In numbers there is strength. [Stop The Steal, accessed 5/2/16]

Jones On 9/11 Attacks: “Those Were Controlled Demolitions. You Just Watched The Government Blow Up The World Trade Center.” Rolling Stone interviewed Jones for a 2011 profile and wrote of his broadcasts following the September 11, 2001, attacks:

Seven weeks later, Jones became the only radio host in America to begin his September 11th broadcast with a tirade against the U.S. government. “I went on the air and said, 'Those were controlled demolitions. You just watched the government blow up the World Trade Center.' I lost 70 percent of my affiliates that day. Station managers asked me, 'Do you want to be on this crusade going nowhere, or do you want to be a star?' I'm proud I never compromised.” [Rolling Stone3/2/11]

Jones Claims There Are Over 300 Pieces Of “Iron-Tight Proof That The Official Story’s A Fable And An Inside Job Is The Only Explanation.” [YouTube.com, 9/12/12]

Jones: 9/11 Attack Was “The False Flag Of False Flags.” While speaking about the 9/11 Truth movement, Jones said of the September 11 attacks: “It’s the false flag of false flags. Until they set a nuke off and blame it on the patriot movement or Al Qaeda.” Infowars describes a false flag attack as “when government engages in covert operations designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations seem as if they are being carried out by other entities.” [Genesis Communications Network, The Alex Jones Show8/21/14; Infowars.com, 8/14/12]

Jones Pushes Extreme Conspiracy Theories About National Tragedies

Somebody's got to tell you the truth.” [Media Matters4/15/13]

Jones On Boston Marathon Bombing: “False Flag, Provocateured, Staged Event By A Government.” Jones has labeled the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing a “false flag, provocateured, staged event by a government.” He’s further claimed that bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev “was totally set up” and “we know it was fake.” [Genesis Communications Network, The Alex Jones Show4/26/134/8/15]

Jones Said “Globalists” Caused Space Shuttle Columbia Disaster To Serve As A “Distraction” From Iraq. Jones wrote that “globalists” were involved in the deadly 2003 disaster, stating on his website:

Three weeks ago, on my syndicated radio show, I said that there was a very good chance that the globalists would do something horrible concerning the latest Colombia mission. Understand, the psychological warfare technicians do not even need to publicly blame Iraq for the Columbia disaster. It will serve as a distraction in the global press during the final weeks of war preparation in the gulf. It Will Serve The Dual Purpose Of Unifying The Country Behind President Bush as he grandstands (See N YT --President Bush Had Tears In His Eyes On Saturday When He Spoke The Words That Became The Headline “The Columbia Is Lost” and Reuters -- Again, Bush Thrust Into Role As National Mourner), talking about how horrible the death of the astronauts has been. [Infowars.com, 2/1/03]

Jones Believes The 2011 Shooting Of Gabrielle Giffords “Was A Staged Mind-Control Operation” By The GovernmentRolling Stone reported of the 2011 shooting of then-Rep. Gabrielle Giffords:

Jones being Jones, he's not sure the Tucson rampage is as simple as a psychotic snap. Turning over the possibilities sends the tendrils of his anti-government imagination into wild motion. “The whole thing stinks to high heaven,” he says. “This kid Loughner disappeared for days at a time before the shooting? My gut tells me this was a staged mind-control operation. The government employs geometric psychological-warfare experts that know exactly how to indirectly manipulate unstable people through the media. They implanted the idea in his head by repeatedly asking, 'Is Giffords in danger?'” [Rolling Stone3/2/11]

Jones Called San Bernardino Shooting A “False Flag.” Jones claimed that the 2015 shooting was in a “Democrat-controlled state and they want to demonize the Second Amendment.” [Genesis Communications Network, The Alex Jones Show12/3/15]

But when you bring 'em in and you know they're going to attack and you know a bunch of 'em are terror cells, then you are aiding and abetting, it is a false flag.” [Genesis Communications Network, The Alex Jones Show, 3/22/16, via Media Matters]

Jones’ Bizarre Beliefs About One-World Government And Global Extermination

Jones Film Documents How World Government Plans “To Exterminate 80% Of The World's Population.” An Infowars.com description for Jones’ film ENDGAME states: 

For the New World Order, a world government is just the beginning. Once in place they can engage their plan to exterminate 80% of the world's population, while enabling the elites to live forever with the aid of advanced technology. For the first time, crusading filmmaker Alex Jones reveals their secret plan for humanity's extermination: Operation ENDGAME. [Infowars.com, accessed 5/2/16]

Jones Film Claims A “World Government Has Arrived And That The Dollar Will Be Replaced By A New Global Currency.” An Infowars.com description for Jones’ film Fall Of The Republic: The Presidency Of Barack H. Obama documents world government:

Fall Of The Republic: The Presidency Of Barack H. Obama documents how an offshore corporate cartel is bankrupting the U.S. economy by design. Leaders are now declaring that world government has arrived and that the dollar will be replaced by a new global currency. President Obama has brazenly violated Article 1 Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution by seating himself at the head of United Nations' Security Council, thus becoming the first U.S. president to chair the world body. 

A scientific dictatorship is in its final stages of completion, and laws protecting basic human rights are being abolished worldwide; an iron curtain of high-tech tyranny is now descending over the planet. A worldwide regime controlled by an unelected corporate elite is implementing a planetary carbon tax system that will dominate all human activity and establish a system of neo-feudal slavery. The image makers have carefully packaged Obama as the world's savior; he is the Trojan Horse manufactured to pacify the people just long enough for the globalists to complete their master plan. [Infowars.com, accessed 5/2/16]

Jones Film Purports To Prove “Existence Of A Secret Network Of FEMA Camps.” An Infowars.com description for Jones’ film Police State 4: The Rise Of FEMA states that it proves the existence of “secret” FEMA camps:

Police State 4: The Rise Of FEMA chronicles the sickening depths to which our republic has fallen. Veteran documentary filmmaker Alex Jones conclusively proves the existence of a secret network of FEMA camps, now being expanded nationwide. The military-industrial complex is transforming our once free nation into a giant prison camp. A cashless society control grid, constructed in the name of fighting terrorism, was actually built to enslave the American people. Body scanners, sound cannons, citizen spies, staged terror and cameras on every street corner — it's only the beginning of the New World Order's hellish plan. [Infowars.com, accessed 5/2/16]
