Caution: Alex Jones Is Using Sheen-Related Media Blitz To Promote His Conspiracy Theories
Research ››› ››› FAE JENCKS
Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been on a media blitz to discuss his bizarre interview with Charlie Sheen. Jones said on his radio show that he is using his appearances to promote his website, where he touts conspiracy theories claiming about involvement in disasters and terrorist attacks.
Jones Says He's Using Media Appearances To Plug His Conspiracy Theory Website
Jones Aims To Use Sheen Story To "Inject InfoWars.com Into" His Media Appearances So "People Will Come Here And Find The Larger Picture." From Jones' radio show:
JONES: I will try to address -- I've got so many different conflicting thoughts in my mind -- that wild, off-the-charts, off-the-rails, over-the-top interview with Charlie Sheen yesterday that is the biggest news story in the United States, and I'm exhausted. I did a whole bunch of TV, radio, newspaper interviews last night. I've already been on MSNBC today, and I'm on a whole bunch of stuff coming up tonight. And obviously, we'll be able to inject InfoWars.com into the discussion when I'm on those broadcasts, and the people will come here and find the larger picture. It's kind of the red pill. Thanks to Charlie Sheen. [Genesis Communications, The Alex Jones Show, 2/25/11]
Jones Repeatedly Plugged His Website In MSNBC Appearance. From MSNBC Live:
JONES: But, bottom line: It's wrong for people to say that Charlie is the person that's throwing the first stone here or drawing first blood when Chuck Lorre wrote a lot of other vanity cards on other shows even worse. Basically calling Charlie soulless and empty.
JONES: I mean, this is some really vicious stuff.
BREWER: So, Alex --
JONES: And Charlie is the bad guy for responding? It's all up on InfoWars.com
JONES: Well, I know that when I was at his house for a few days a week and a half ago, he was working out twice a day, drinking health shakes, you know, still smoking cigarettes and things like that, but really just full of a lot of energy. And a lot of times, when you come off a seven-month quasi-bender, from what I've read, the endorphins start waking up. You get a lot of energy.
And so, sure. I would call Charlie energized. That was the wildest radio interview I've done in 16 years, in the history of InfoWars.com. But I think that people, you know, should judge Charlie for his entire life, not just, you know, some of the episodes that people can spin. He's a lot more complex of a person than just, you know, one interview or one falling off the wagon shows.
BREWER: Or a few. I mean, Alex, or a few episodes of that. Hey, listen. It was a great interview. I really appreciate you coming on and sharing your perspective with all the background information that you bring to the table as well. Thanks for the time.
JONES: Hey, thank you for having me on. It's all on InfoWars.com. [MSNBC, MSNBC Live, 2/25/11, emphasis added]
Jones' Website, Radio Show Feature His Outrageous Conspiracy Theories
Jones Uses Juice Box To Explain Theory That The Government Is Trying To "Encourage Homosexuality With Chemicals So That People Don't Have Children." From Jones' radio show:
JONES: We talked about this over a decade ago and were called kooks. There are thousands of different permutations and different types of plastic. They chose one family of plastics that actually even costs more than a lot of the other formulas, made out of petroleum, that leaks and leaches high levels of estrogen mimicker. And so our boys are feminized and have smaller genitals -- this is -- they've know this for 50 years -- and women are hyper-feminized. And so a woman's breasts at 30 are the breasts of a 70-year-old. That's why so many women are -- you know, biologically -- they don't look like the breasts of a 70-year-old, but the hormonal exchanges have worn the cell DNA out to the point of a 70-year-old.
And so, you know, your 8-year-old goes into puberty when she's a girl, and your boy looks like a girl and acts like a girl, because they are a girl. I mean, you can feed estrogen to a bull, and it'll act like a cow. In fact, it'll even go present itself to another bull to be mounted because it's got a similar brain.
And so, yes. And that's one reason you can't really blame a lot of these people that are gay. You know, people love to hate them and say kill them and stuff. I think it's a destructive lifestyle, but I don't hate these people. But the reason there's so many gay people now is because it's a chemical warfare operation. I have the government documents where they said they're going to encourage homosexuality with chemicals so that people don't have children.
JONES: Hey, let's stop drinking out of estrogen-mimicking containers. And again, I even catch myself, Bob, drinking out of these estrogen mimickers because it's everywhere.
I mean, take this [holds up juice box]. I don't know, but I should check. This is probably lined with the type of plastic that has it. But I still grabbed this off the shelf this morning. Even though it says it's organic, that's not enough. In fact, let me -- guys, give me a knife so I can tear into this. Let's see if it's lined with it. In fact, it'll probably say it if it's lined with it inside the plastic packaging.
Huh, I wonder if this spring water, natural lime flavor I'm drinking. I know full well H-E-B's putting fluoride in this. Why am I drinking this? I know full well that these Kettle Chips say that they don't have MSG, but they've got the yeast extract thing that say it's MSG.
What's wrong with us? Why won't we stop? Why am I so weak?
JONES: OK, here is -- for those watching on PrisonPlanet.tv -- here's the inside of this juice box. And if they zoom in any more -- see that thin plastic? It's got it. And I'm letting my children drink this.
Why? All of the juice could be out of a glass bottle. All of it could be healthy. But we see the word "organic." Meanwhile, it's got an estrogen mimicker leaching right out of it. Look at that. See the plastic, folks? It's got a plastic lining. There's the plastic lining.
Great point. Great caller, Bobby. I'm glad you took us on that angle.
What's the name of that newscast? Because I've seen a CBS newscasts admitting and I've seen a BBC newscast. Conclusively, this turns -- you know, I saw the police chief of Fort Worth two weeks ago -- in fact, put it up on the screen for me, guys, if you can find it -- you know, police chief promotes hormone replacement. And he says injections of testosterone for cops because cops need it.
Men, if you're normal and have normal testosterone, that's enough testosterone to get you in a lot of trouble, and you know that. But maybe cops do need testosterone, because after you're done drinking your little juices, well, I mean, you're ready to go out and have a baby. You're ready to put makeup on. You're ready to wear a short skirt. You're ready to go, you know, put together a, you know, garden of roses or something. You're ready to put lipstick on.
I mean, look at this. You know, maybe the globalists are doing me a favor. Maybe I'm too aggressive as a male. Maybe the problem is I'm not drinking enough estrogen-mimicking plastic. Maybe that's the problem. [Genesis Communications, The Alex Jones Show, 6/11/10]
Jones Claims A Secretive Group Of Elites Are Attempting To Create A New World Order. The starting point for Jones' conspiracy theories is his belief in the existence of the New World Order, a secretive group of powerful elites with an agenda to rule the world through authoritarian world government.
The Independent Film Channel (IFC) -- which aired a documentary about Jones -- wrote that he believes the New World Order is "covertly masterminding a series of destructive events to cause a mass breakdown of the world's economy and society. Once the world has fallen into chaos, these same 'elitists' will offer a plan to rebuild the economic and social structure of the world (to their liking). ... The film captures this growing anti-New World Order movement as it targets the annual Bilderberg conference, and the 9/11 attacks as focal points in the alleged global conspiracy."
Part of the New World Order conspiracy is the meeting of the Bilderberg Group. Every year, according to Jones' website PrisonPlanet.com, "traitorous government officials go to Bilderberg to get their marching orders" to help enact global "serfdom and dictatorship." Jones' website also writes, "Two key Bilderberg films that contributed to this unraveling of Bilderberg's cloak of secrecy were Alex Jones' Endgame and The Obama Deception. In Endgame, Alex Jones bullhorns the 2006 Bilderberg meeting in Ottawa Canada, garnering front page coverage in major newspapers as for the first time Bilderberg's efforts to preserve their low profile agenda were blown wide open. ... In The Obama Deception, ... Alex Jones exposed how he [Obama] was personally chosen over Hillary Clinton at the 2008 Bilderberg meeting by Bilderberg luminaries and how Obama was in actual fact a compliant servant for the Bilderberg globalists who he answers to, people like Zbigniew Brzezinski."
Jones' film Fall of the Republic documents how the New World Order dictatorship is in the "final stages of completion" for an authoritarian world government:
Fall Of The Republic documents how an offshore corporate cartel is bankrupting the US 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.
This film reveals the architecture of the New World Order and what the power elite have in store for humanity. More importantly it communicates how we the people can retake control of our government, turn the criminal tide and bring the tyrants to justice.
NWO Will Exterminate 80% Of The World's Population. A summary of Jones' ENDGAME film 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. ... Watch as Jones and his team track the elusive Bilderberg Group to Ottawa and Istanbul to document their secret summits, allowing you to witness global kingpins setting the world's agenda and instigating World War III ... Discover how the practitioners of the pseudo-science eugenics have taken control of governments worldwide as a means to carry out depopulation."
Jones Claimed Bill Gates Is "A Huge Eugenicist" Who Wants To Sterilize People. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center's Hatewatch blog:
But for radio host Alex Jones, the conspiracy-monger-in-chief of the antigovernment "Patriot" movement, that is all complete malarkey. What the Gateses are really up to, Jones claims, is using their vaccines to sterilize and depopulate the world -- a tactic that is part of a grand conspiracy by the global elite to seize control of just about everything.
During a March 2 radio segment in which Jones called Gates "a huge eugenicist" (eugenics is the discredited pseudo-science of creating a better human race through selective breeding), Jones alleged that Gates is part of a massive globalist conspiracy that plans to establish a "scientific dictatorship to control [Americans]." Gates' aim in promoting vaccines, for Jones, has nothing to do with child health. It is a massive plan for sterilizing the population.
Jones' attack on Gates was preceded by a March 1 post on his website, prisonplanet.com, by British conspiracist Paul Joseph Watson. In it, Watson writes: "Quite how an improvement in health care and vaccines that supposedly save lives would lead to a lowering in global population is an oxymoron, unless Gates is referring to vaccines that sterilize people." Watson goes on to allege that Gates wants vaccines to "sterilize people," which Watson writes "is precisely the same method advocated in White House science advisor John P. Holdren's 1977 textbook Ecoscience, which calls for a dictatorial 'planetary regime' to enforce draconian measures of population reduction via all manner of oppressive techniques, including sterilization." [Hatewatch, SPLCenter.org, 7/7/10]
Jones Claims The U.S. Government Was Behind The 9/11 Attacks. Jones describes himself as being on "the front lines of the growing global information war from ground zero to the occult playgrounds of the power-mad elite. Jones predicted the attacks on September 11th, 2001 and is considered one of the very first founding fathers of the 9-11 Truth Movement."
The Anti-Defamation League wrote that "Jones may currently well be the most prominent conspiracy theorist in the United States" and "reached prominence in the years after the 9/11 terror attacks, as he became one of the most energetic of the 'truthers,' the conspiracy theorists who believe that the 9/11 attacks were an 'inside job' by the U.S. government."
The New York Times wrote that Jones "is the William Jennings Bryan of the 9/11 band." The Times described Jones' 9-11 theories as: "that the military command that monitors aircraft 'stood down' on the day of the attacks; that President Bush addressed children in a Florida classroom instead of being whisked off to the White House; that the hijackers, despite what the authorities say, were trained at American military bases; and that the towers did not collapse because of burning fuel and weakened steel but because of a 'controlled demolition' caused by pre-set bombs."
Jones' InfoWars.com -- a sister site of PrisonPlanet.com that shares content and staff -- features a section for 9-11 conspiracy theories. Jones also sells "exclusive" movies dedicated to the 9-11 Truth movement:
- 9/11: The Road to Tyranny. The movie claims to document "the ruthless history of governments orchestrating terrorist attacks against their own people to scare them into total submission." The description continues: "In this brutal expose you will witness the birth of a global police state that surpasses Orwell's nightmarish vision. It's all here: *The history of government-sponsored terrorism *The modern implementation of fear-based control *The New World Order's future plans."
- Truth Rising: The 9/11 Chronicles Part One. The movie description states: "Join Alex Jones, Luke Rudkowski and others as they set out on a mission determined to expose the ruthless global elite and alert the masses to the truth about 9/11. Strap in and get ready to ride along as criminal overlords David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Alan Greenspan, John McCain, and many others are confronted about their lies and manipulation."
Jones is the executive producer for Loose Change: Final Cut and helped with "financing the production and release of the film." The movie states that it "hopes to be the catalyst for a new independent investigation, in which the family members receive answers to their questions, and the TRUE PERPETRATORS of this horrendous crime are PROSECUTED and PUNISHED." TIME notes that Loose Change is "[o]ne of the most popular conspiracy videos online, ... a 90-min. blizzard of statistics, photographs, documents, eyewitness accounts and expert testimony set to a trippy hip-hop backbeat. It's designed to pick apart, point by point, the conventional narrative of what happened on Sept. 11, 2001."
Jones' Movie The Road To Tyranny Claims Bill Clinton Was Involved In The Oklahoma City Bombing. From Jones' website:
THE ROAD TO TYRANNY EXPOSES:
*HOW DOZENS OF FBI AND DEFENSE INTELLIGENCE AGENTS WERE THREATENED WITH ARREST BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IF THEY GOT IN THE WAY OF AL-QAEDA OPERATIONS
*HOW THE CIA TRAINED, FUNDED AND PROTECTED BIN LADEN
*THAT IMPEACHMENT LAWYER DAVID SCHIPPERS WARNED CONGRESS AND THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OF THE IMPENDING TERRORISTS ATTACKS . (THE FILM INCLUDES AN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH SCHIPPERS ON THE ALEX JONES SHOW JUST 2 WEEKS AFTER THE ATTACKS. SCHIPPERS HAS SINCE BEEN THREATENED WITH ARREST IF HE CONTINUES TO SPEAK OUT, AND IS BEGGING THE MEDIA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO GET THIS STORY OUT)
*HOW THE BLOODTHIRSTY GLOBALISTS ARE USING THE TERRORIST ATTACKS TO SCARE THE POPULATION INTO ACCEPTING HIGH-TECH SLAVERY AND A NEW WORLD ORDER POLICE STATE
* HOW THE RECENTLY DECLASSIFIED TOP-SECRET NORTHWOODS DOCUMENT WRITTEN BY THE JOINT CHIEFS OF STAFF LAID OUT PLANS TO BOMB WASHINGTON AND TO HIJACK AIRPLANES AS A PRETEXT FOR WAR
*BILL CLINTON'S INVOLVEMENT IN THE OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING AND HOW IT WAS CARRIED OUT BY INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES TO BE BLAMED ON THE RIGHT-WING [InfoWars.com, accessed 2/25/11]
Jones Claims The Government Set Up Secret FEMA Camps In America. From the description of Jones' movie Police State 4: The Rise of FEMA on InfoWars.com:
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.
This film exposes how the Continuity of Government program has established an all powerful shadow state. Prepare to enter the secretive world of emergency dictatorship, FEMA camps, and a shredded Constitution. Witness police and military savagely attacking innocent citizens as our own government unleashes false flag operations to justify its oppression. Then watch as Alex Jones takes on corrupt mercenary police and exposes mainstream media brainwashing.
The police state isn't coming -- it's already here.
Ads for the DVD show Jones' eyes above the words, "Death camps Are Real."
Jones' Obama Deception film claims that "Obama is continuing the process of transforming America into something that resembles Nazi Germany, with forced National Service, domestic civilian spies, warrantless wiretaps, the destruction of the Second Amendment, FEMA camps and Martial Law."
An April 17, 1999, Austin American-Statesman article (retrieved from Nexis) reported that, even then, Jones believed that FEMA was "building hundreds of concentration camps on military bases with separate areas for men, women and women with children."
Jones Claims BP Oil Spill A Deliberate Act. Jones has pushed the theory that the BP oil spill was a deliberate attack. Jones co-wrote a June 8 article headlined, "Evidence Points To BP Oil Spill False Flag." A false flag event is an operation carried out by a powerful entity to deceive the public into thinking it was carried out by someone else. False flag examples cited by conspiracy theorists include the Oklahoma City bombing, and 9-11 attacks. From Jones' article on InfoWars.com:
- Sales of shares and stocks in days and weeks beforehand
- Halliburton link, acquisition of cleanup company days before explosion
- BP report cites undocumented tampering with well sealing equipment
- Government uses disaster to push for Carbon Tax, Nationalization talk
Troubling evidence surrounding the Deepwater Horizon explosion on April 20th suggests that the incident could have been manufactured.
Jones has discussed "evidence" that the spill was a false flag event on his radio program. A program posted on Jones' YouTube channel on June 20 states that Jones "reveals why he is now sure it's a 100% false flag event to usher in the global carbon tax talked about at the G-20 summit."
Jones' Pushed Conspiracy Theory That The Government Can Control Hurricanes. From an InfoWars.com article co-written by Jones:
Buried under the constantly updated reports of Hurricane Wilma, its increasing or decreasing strength and where it will make landfall, is the reality that the government already has developed technology enabling control and reduction of hurricanes.
However, unsurprisingly they have no shown no willingness to use it to save lives or businesses as we come to the conclusion of what many are calling the most unprecedented hurricane season in history.
Former Naval physicist Ben Livingston briefed President Lyndon B. Johnson on hurricane control technology 40 years ago and continues to try to educate the public on its potential effectiveness today. [InfoWars.com, 10/21/05]
Jones Claims "Globalists" Were Involved In The Space Shuttle Columbia Disaster. According to Jones' website:
Jones: Copenhagen Climate Summit Designed To Create Global Government Using Carbon Taxes. In a video posted to YouTube on December 19, 2009, Jones claimed that the climate conference in Copenhagen, Denmark had as part of its agenda a plan to create global government and global governance using carbon taxes.
Jones On The Federal Reserve: "These Are The Bloodsuckers Engineering The Depression We're Going Into." A November 2008 video depicts Jones outside the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas shouting into a bullhorn, "The Federal Reserve is a parasitic criminal organization, and we're here exposing you. ... These are the new world order criminals. The Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel and a criminal organization. These are the bloodsuckers engineering the depression we're going into."
Jones Claimed Holdren "Says Forced Abortions And Mass Sterilization Needed To Save The Planet." On the July 12, 2009, edition of his radio show, Jones asserted that White House science and technology adviser John Holdren, in a textbook he co-authored, "says forced abortions and mass sterilization needed to save the planet." A July 11, 2009, Prison Planet post similarly claims that "Holdren advocated forced abortions, mass sterilization through food and water supply and mandatory bodily implants to prevent pregnancies."
Jones's Website Attacked CFR As An Organization "Filled With Collectivists Who Advocated Population And Covert Control Over America And The World." In an article posted May 12 on Jones' website, the CFR is described as "a global agenda organization filled with collectivists who advocated population and covert control over America and the world." An April 9, 2009, article on Jones' website PrisonPlanet.com said, "The Obama administration's announcement that it is to consider radical planetary 'geo-engineering', such as 'shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphere to reflect the sun's rays', exactly mirrors recent publications penned by the elite Council On Foreign Relations." A November 7, 2008, InfoWars.com article highlighted "Obama's leading foreign and domestic policy advisors and likely administration members, every one of them a prominent member of the Council On Foreign Relations."
Jones Alleges That The IMF Plots To Destroy Economies And "Put In A Dictator Or A Plutocracy And Then They Just Have Literal Rule By The Bankers Over The People." On the October 27, 2006, edition of his radio show, Jones described an "IMF World Bank riot," a conspiracy in which the IMF "destroy[s]" an economy "by design" then they "get to put in a dictator or a plutocracy and then they just have literal rule by the bankers over the people." In an April 23 Russia Today video, Jones called the IMF "a private holding company of the top 10 global banks worldwide. I mean, they've looted every Third World nation on the planet. They've raided Eastern Europe. They've raided Russia. They've raided country after country, and now they're doing to the West what they're doing to the rest of the world. ... They are the people that engineered the banking collapse."
Jones' Pushed Swine Flu Conspiracy Theories On InfoWars.com. On June 17, 2009, InfoWars.com reprinted an article titled "Swine Flu Vaccination Poses Serious Threat To Your Health," on July 24, 2009 an article claimed "12,000 U.S. Children To Be Swine Flu Vaccine Guinea Pigs." An October 30, 2009 reprint said "The Goal of Every H1N1 Swine Flu Vaccine: Immunotoxicity, Neurotoxicity and Sterility." In a video posted to YouTube on September 23, 2009, Jones said, "New York nurse. Church told to take vaccine, what, did your clergy response team FEMA preacher tell you to take it our you'd go to hell?" During a discussion of vaccines on his August 18, 2009, radio show, Jones said that "if people knew how deadly vaccines were, they would never take them."
Jones Claimed U.N. Was "Cutting The Heads Off Little Children," Is "Pure Evil." On October 24, 1998, Jones gave a speech at the Texas State Capitol in which he attacked United Nations peacekeeping forces for allegedly "cutting the heads off little children." Appearing in a Russia Today video on September 23, Jones said that the United Nations is a "purely wicked organization," and a "green, Nazi, world-government, eugenics movement wrapped in a humanitarian package. It is pure evil." Jones also claimed that the U.N. "inherently was designed for fraud and corruption and taking over sovereign nations" and that its "mission is to set up a covert world government."
