    Trump is actually taking Alex Jones seriously so unfortunately we should pay attention to what he says. Today I listened to a few minutes of him warning that Obama was plotting a coup and "coming for him."

    Alex told the president to start giving 8:00 fireside chats on TV every evening to counter all the fake news out there. Then Alex explained that it was common knowledge the Obama administration was wiretapping Trump Tower, because "they admitted it when they said they'd recorded Flynn talking to the Russian Ambassador." But he neglected to say that the Feds were tapping the Russian guy and that is how Flynn was recorded. Plus Trump claimed that Obama was tapping Trump himself, which is a bigger deal than tapping other specific people.

    This kind of fact weaseling is super annoying to refute.

    Alex Jones posts links to a bunch of vitamins for sale under his videos. Here is the copypasta from the video I saw:

    Published on Mar 5, 2017
    Sunday, March 5: Coup Against President Trump Happening Now! - President Trump accuses the Obama administration of illegally tapping Trump Tower phone calls, and continues to highlight Democrats' hypocritical ties to Russia. Meanwhile, the former president denies authorizing the wiretaps, as the extent of the spying comes into question. We'll break down all the latest concerted efforts by the fake stream media and butt-hurt Dems to dethrone the incoming president. We'll also take your phone calls during this worldwide edition.

    Trump’s “deep state” obsession comes from his ally and advisor, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones

    Donald Trump believes that the so-called "deep state" is out to undermine his presidency, and has reportedly declared war on it, with top aide Steve Bannon stoking the fires. The intellectual backing for this fantasy is Trump ally and 9/11 conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who has had personal access and repeated interactions with Trump for nearly two years.

    By Oliver Willis

    Quote:

    According to the New York Times, while neither Donald Trump nor Steve Bannon have used the term publicly, they are both true believers in the “deep state.” Bannon has spoken to supporter and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich about “his suspicion of the deep state and what he sees as its pernicious influence.”

    It is certainly true that Trump’s repeated smearing of the country’s national security agencies before he was sworn in has caused some consternation. When leaks about Trump’s connections to Russia and the hacking of the Democratic Party during the 2016 election hit the news, Trump complained on Twitter, asking, “Are we living in Nazi Germany?”

    Outgoing CIA director John Brennan slammed this language, saying, “I think he has to be mindful that he does not have a full appreciation and understanding of what the implications are of going down that road.” The comment appears to have increased the antagonism between Trump and agencies, and has probably led to some of the information being released — but so has his unusually close relationship to a foreign entity with a vested interest in his election.

    But that is more in line with traditional disgruntled government agency behavior. Where is Trump getting this paranoid “deep state” stuff?

    The term, with its surrounding air of paranoia and speculation, has all the hallmarks of his longtime ally Roger Stone and his associate, right-wing conspiracy radio/internet host Alex Jones.

    Stone has been Trump’s political whisperer for decades, at one point holding a leadership role in his 2016 presidential campaign, and continues to be a trusted adviser to this day. Stone has written several conspiracy minded books, including one blaming President Lyndon Johnson for orchestrating the murder of President John F. Kennedy. Stone also backed Trump’s bizarre allegation that Senator Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the JFK assassination.

    But Jones is the conspiracy mother lode: He described himself as one of the “founding fathers” of the so-called “9/11 truth movement,” which claims that the 9/11 terror attacks were executed by the government of the United States. Jones believes that the government — aka the “deep state” — has orchestrated attacks and events throughout history. This includes the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, the massacre at Sandy Hook (he claims that many of the parents were actors), the Boston Marathon attack, and on and on.

    For decades, Jones has existed at the fringes of right wing media, but Trump appeared on his show in 2015 after announcing his presidential campaign, and the two have been rhetorically joined at the hip since. During the presidential primary season, Jones enlisted his audience to vote for Trump, and Stone has been whispering in both men’s ears (he appears on Jones’ show and writes for his conspiracy website, Infowars).

    Trump praised Jones for having an “amazing” reputation when he appeared on his show, and reportedly told him he was “one of the greatest influences I’ve ever seen” in a personal telephone conversation. According to Jones, he and Trump have kept in contact for months via phone conversations.

    While Trump has long embraced conspiracy theories — his biggest political move before his campaign was the promotion of the racist birther conspiracy alleging President Obama was not born in the United States — his interaction with Jones has led to publicly echoing Jones’ rantings about who truly controls the world.

    Even Jones seemed amazed to hear Trump speaking about his crank beliefs on the national stage. He told his audience it was “amazing” and “surreal to talk about issues here on air and then word-for-word hear [Donald] Trump say it two days later.”

    The mind-meld was cemented with Trump’s speech accepting the Republican nomination as he declared war on “globalism” — the overarching idea, steeped in anti-Semitism and which Jones has promoted for decades, of a vast conspiracy of wealthy, powerful “globalists” who are the hidden, invisible hands behind world events and who manipulate them in service of accumulating personal power and wealth.

    Alex Jones & Donald Trump Bombshell Full Interview | The Alex Jones Channel



    December 2, 2015

    Alex Jones interviews leading presidential candidate Donald Trump on The Alex Jones Show.

    The Invisible Empire of Alex Jones | SPIN

    By Andy Cush, October 26, 2016

    Excerpt:

    In December 2015, Trump phoned in to the Alex Jones Show for a 30-minute interview. “Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down,” the candidate told the host. Jones and InfoWars have steadfastly supported Trump’s candidacy since then.

    On a recent Monday, the InfoWars homepage displayed 13 different pro-Trump headlines, several of which echoed the candidate’s insistence that the election is rigged against him: “Hillary Bores Audiences While Trump Knocks It Out Of The Park,” “Trump Devastates Hillary at Catholic Event,” “Trump Surges In Polls, Hillary Moves To Steal,” “Are The Polls Rigged Against Trump? All Of These Wildly Divergent Surveys Cannot Possibly Be Correct,” and so on.

    T-shirts and signs bearing the slogan “Hillary for Prison” — purchased via the InfoWars store or bootlegged after Jones popularized the phrase — were an inescapable sight at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland, where Jones himself could be seen palling around with alt-right godhead Milo Yiannopoulos and erstwhile Trump advisor Roger Stone.

    “Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty,” Trump proclaimed at a campaign speech in West Palm Beach this month, channeling almost verbatim Jones’s obsession with the idea that the global elite are conspiring to create a one-world government. With its images of “international bankers” conniving in the shadows, the speech also carried a distinct whiff of anti-Semitism.

    Alex Jones is not the most important influence on Trump’s campaign. To the extent that the candidate is influenced by anything other than his own wild hairs, that designation might go to someone like Trump campaign CEO and Breitbart executive Steve Bannon, or former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. But Jones’s influence on Trump is unmistakable nonetheless. It would be unthinkable for any other major-party presidential candidate to willingly appear on a show with a man who believes that the U.S. government was involved in conducting the 2001 World Trade Center attacks, as Jones does, or to intimate that he would not accept the results of the election, an impulse that Jones encourages.

    In 2016, Alex Jones has recruited the Republican nominee to join him in shouting out the basest fears of a nation where lunatics and police kill our countrymen in the streets, where suburban mothers fret over genetically modified baby food, where white supremacist poets post their lurid fantasias to Facebook Live, and where immigrants and refugees are pleading at our doorstep. Among the many twists in the most bizarre presidential campaign in recent history, few developments have felt more surreal than Alex Jones rising to become one of the philosopher chiefs behind a presidential candidate.

    In Travis County custody case, jury will search for real Alex Jones | Austin American-Statesman

    Quote:

    Alex Jones and his ex-wife, Kelly, will be locked in a child custody trial the next two weeks in Austin.

    Alex Jones’ lawyers will make the case that their client should not be judged by his on-air persona.

    Lawyers for Kelly Jones will maintain that Jones’ public outbursts suggest he is not a fit parent.

    At a recent pretrial hearing, attorney Randall Wilhite told state District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that using his client Alex Jones’ on-air Infowars persona to evaluate Alex Jones as a father would be like judging Jack Nicholson in a custody dispute based on his performance as the Joker in “Batman.”

    “He’s playing a character,” Wilhite said of Jones. “He is a performance artist.”

    Isn't there anything Alex Jones reported correctly? I'm honestly curious.

    Personally, my only problem with Alex Jones is that he doesn't provide strategic plans to counter the problems he complains about. It's the classic lion tamer move of using the legs of a chair to present multiple threats at once so that the lion freezes instead of actually doing anything. It's no different than what mainstream media, or as Alex Jones calls it, "dinosaur" media, have been doing for years.

    Megyn Kelly To Interview Alex Jones Next Week | The Alex Jones Channel



    Guess who's coming to interview Alex Jones next week?

    Megyn Kelly Set to Interview Alex Jones for ‘Sunday Night’ | Variety

    Megyn Kelly is expected to feature controversial conservative firebrand Alex Jones on her NBC newsmagazine show in the coming weeks.

    Jones said on his “Infowars” online program Thursday that he was set for a one-on-one with Kelly next week. NBC News declined comment. Jones vowed to challenge Kelly about statements she made about him during her previous tenure at Fox News. Jones has drawn condemnation for provocative statements such as suggesting that the 2012 school shooting massacre in Newtown, Conn., was a hoax.

    Jones said the Kelly interview marks a rare example of his agreeing to a sit-down with a mainstream media figure. He said he has turned down many other recent offers but realized that Kelly will likely have a big platform with “Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly.”

    “I’d be dumb if I didn’t do some of these interviews,” Jones said.

    “Sunday Night” premieres this weekend with Kelly’s interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin as its centerpiece. Kelly joined NBC News earlier this year after making a high-profile departure from Fox News.

    Alex Jones runs the website Infowars, which recently included his theories about last week's Manchester bombing. “Big bomb goes off at pop star concert, bombing a bunch of liberal trendies,” he said.

    Megyn Kelly's Alex Jones interview got lots of attention, but not many viewers | CNN

    Quote:

    Kelly's sit down with Jones, a controversial, conspiracy theorist radio host and founder of the website Infowars, brought in an average of 3.5 million viewers Sunday night. That's the fewest viewers that Kelly's weekly news magazine telecast, "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly," has drawn since its debut three weeks ago.

    The show also trailed a re-run episode of CBS' "60 Minutes," which brought in 5.3 million viewers. Among 18-49-year-olds, the demographic most prized by advertisers, a repeat of "America's Funniest Home Videos" beat both Kelly and "60 Minutes" by about 40%.

    "Sunday Night" has seen a steady decline in its viewership since Kelly's debut episode, which was set around an exclusive interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin. That episode drew an average of 6.2 million viewers.

    Though the interview ultimately didn't draw many viewers, in the weeks before it aired it did get quite a bit of media attention, and a fair bit of criticism.

    Multiple advertisers pulled out of Kelly's interview with Jones over his promotion of unfounded conspiracy theories, including one that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax made up in order to push new gun control measures. Family members of some of those killed in the massacre sent NBC a letter, through lawyers, asking the network not to run the interview.

    But after the interview ran, it scored mostly positive reviews.

    "The main test, which the segment passed, was whether 'Sunday Night' articulated a tough enough case and cross-examination to demonstrate that this was a legitimate topic -- even at the risk of providing Infowars wider mainstream exposure," wrote Brian Lowry, CNN's media critic.

    Some critics still felt, though, that while Kelly may have presented a strong interview, she and NBC erred in giving Jones, and his theories, a national platform.

    "Bottom line on NBC's Alex Jones piece: Strong editing gave it an edge & made him look like a kook," tweeted Margaret Sullivan, a media columnist for the Washington Post. "Still a win for him; boosts his profile."

    Facebook bans 'InfoWars' founder Alex Jones for 30 days | Mashable

    Quote:

    A mere matter of days after InfoWars founder Alex Jones received yet another YouTube strike — but wasn't banned — he's been hit with a 30-day block on Facebook.

    Jones received another strike on YouTube this week for violating community guidelines in four videos, which have since been taken down.

    A Facebook spokesperson confirmed in an email that the social network has enforced a 30-day time out for Jones after he was found to have violated Facebook's Community Standards.

    "Our Community Standards make it clear that we prohibit content that encourages physical harm [bullying], or attacks someone based on their religious affiliation or gender identity [hate speech]," said a Facebook spokesperson.

    "We remove content that violates our standards as soon as we're aware of it. In this case, we received reports related to four different videos on the Pages that InfoWars and Alex Jones maintain on Facebook," the spokesperson continued.

    Facebook reviewed the content posted by Jones and found four videos to be in violation of its Community Standards. The videos have since been taken down, the spokesperson confirmed.

    So, what exactly is a 30-day block?

    Essentially, the block will be applied to any pages managed by Jones, in addition to Jones himself. This means he won't be able to post content to any pages that he's "page admin" for.

    Facebook enforce 30-day bans in the case of multiple violations. Prior to this ban, Jones has received a notification from Facebook informing him that he had repeatedly violated its policies and informing him that if he did so again, he'd receive a 30-day ban.

    While Jones didn't receive an out-and-out ban this time, he's certainly treading on thin ice as far as Facebook's concerned. Several pages managed by Jones are said to be close to the point of being unpublished by the social network given his repeated violations of community standards.

    Apple Is Removing Alex Jones And Infowars' Podcasts From iTunes | BuzzFeed News

    The removal follows enforcement actions by platforms like Facebook, YouTube, and Spotify and is the largest crackdown on conspiratorial news content by a technology company to date.

    Quote:

    Apple has removed the entire library for five of Infowars' six podcasts from its iTunes and Podcast apps, BuzzFeed News has learned. Among the podcasts, which were removed from Apples' iTunes directory, are the show "War Room" as well as the popular Alex Jones Show podcast, which is hosted daily by the prominent conspiracy theorist.

    Following the move, Spotify and Facebook have also acted to remove content made by Jones.

    Apple's decision to remove all episodes of Jones' popular show — rather than just specific offending episodes — is one of the largest enforcement actions intended to curb conspiratorial news content by a technology company to date. Apple did not host Jones's shows, but it offered an index that allowed anyone with an iPhone to find and subscribe to them. Though Apple is far from Jones and Infowars' only distribution platform, the decision to pull Jones' content will considerably limit the outlet's audio reach — as of 2018, Apple's Podcasts platform amassed 50 billion all-time downloads and streams.

    In a statement Sunday evening to BuzzFeed News, Apple confirmed that it notified Jones of the decision to remove the five shows under its hate speech guidelines earlier this weekend. "Apple does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users," a company spokesperson said. "Podcasts that violate these guidelines are removed from our directory making them no longer searchable or available for download or streaming. We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with differing opinions.”

    Facebook removes 4 pages from InfoWars and Alex Jones | CNN

    Facebook has removed four pages associated with InfoWars and its controversial founder Alex Jones for repeated violations of its policies.

    Quote:

    The social media platform said in a statement Monday that it had "unpublished" the Alex Jones Channel Page, the Alex Jones Page, the InfoWars Page and the Infowars Nightly News Page.

    Facebook (FB) removed four videos from the pages last week after determining that they violated its hate speech and bullying policies. It also suspended the personal profile of Jones.

    The company said Monday that more content from the pages had since been reported, and it had decided to remove them for "repeated violations of community standards and accumulating too many strikes."

    "Upon review, we have taken it down for glorifying violence ... and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies," said Facebook.

    The pages displayed the following message when accessed Monday: "Sorry, this content isn't available right now."

    InfoWars did not immediately respond to a request for comment sent outside business hours.

    The website is notorious for spreading demonstrably false information and conspiracy theories on a host of issues. It has suggested that the Sandy Hook massacre was a hoax, and that the September 11 terrorist attacks were an inside job orchestrated by the US government.

    For weeks, Facebook has suffered a public relations crisis over how it handles misinformation and false news on its platforms. The company said the removal of the four pages on Monday was unrelated.

    "While much of the discussion around InfoWars has been related to false news ... none of the violations that spurred today's removals were related to this," it said in a statement.

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defends decision not to ban Alex Jones and InfoWars | CNN

    Quote:

    "We didn't suspend Alex Jones or Infowars yesterday," Dorsey tweeted Tuesday. "We know that's hard for many but the reason is simple: he hasn't violated our rules. We'll enforce if he does. And we'll continue to promote a healthy conversational environment by ensuring tweets aren't artificially amplified."

    Twitter (TWTR) was notably absent from a list of big tech companies that cut some ties with Jones and his InfoWars site this week. Apple (AAPL), Facebook (FB) and Google's (GOOGL) YouTube removed content associated with Jones and InfoWars for violating their policies.

    The InfoWars app is still available on the Apple and Google app stores.

    Dorsey said Twitter would hold Jones to the same standard as it does every account.

    "If we succumb and simply react to outside pressure, rather than straightforward principles we enforce (and evolve) impartially regardless of political viewpoints, we become a service that's constructed by our personal views that can swing in any direction," he said. "That's not us."

    Dorsey called on journalists to "document, validate, and refute" information posted by accounts like Jones' "so people can form their own opinions."
