Alex Jones Channels George W. Bush

July 31st, 2014

Remember when George Bush said:

“Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists.”

With that speech, Bush joined the likes of Lenin and Mussolini (see this). And now, so has Alex Jones. During the July 29, 2014 edition of his podcast (at 00:16:55) Jones said:

“There is no debating this; there is no choice. You either join with the evil and be a schmuck, be a chump, be a sucker, be a mark, be a mind-controlled cult member, or you decide that you’re going to resist what’s happening.”

What’s ironic about this is that Jones uses the very same Bush video-clip in nearly all of his films! He obviously thinks that it is a powerful condemnation, and now he’s talking like that himself. This adds weight to my theory that Jones is not much different than the people we wants to dethrone.

What Does Alex Jones Want?

July 26th, 2014

Donuts; lots of donuts, obviously. But what are his goals? If you have ever heard Alex Jones bloviate, you have heard him machine-gunning criticisms without ever making a policy suggestion. Jones is a shock jock, so there is no reason to expect deep thinking from him, but he definitely has goals that he strives for with demonic energy. Alex Jones wants two things: he wants you to be paralyzed with fear, and he wants to destroy the United States of America as a political entity.

Alex Jones has millions of followers. He is the patron saint of the Tea Party, right-wing militias, libertarians, and anarchists. Matt Drudge once predicted that 2013 would be The Year of Alex Jones, and Jones is a major political force, deserving of scrutiny.

Destroying the USA
If you listen to his podcast for long enough, a couple of months perhaps, you will eventually hear Jones shout: “WE WANT LOCAL CONTROL!” What exactly he means by that is unknown because he is not well-thought-out, but it is clear that he is opposed to the concept of central government. The only question is: where would he stop? After destroying Washington, would he then march on Austin and eliminate the state government of Texas? What about the county? What about city hall? What about the homeowners association?

“Local control” can mean a lot of things, and political parties are expected to have a platform, but Jones is not a politician. He is a propagandist. And Jones’ mission is to simply demonize the enemy – the Yankee government in Washington. Jones has a one-point platform: destroy the federal government.

Instilling Fear
The best way to think of Alex Jones is as a human Stuka dive bomber – a terror weapon designed to instill fear in you, the listener. The Stuka was loud, and if Alex Jones is anything, he is loud. When the doctor put the stethoscope on the pregnant belly of Jones’ mother, he heard: “THE STORM TROOPERS ARE COMING TO MARCH YOU INTO A FEMA CAMP!!!” Baby Jones was wrong back then, and he has been wrong ever since; like a million times in a row. But he won’t stop because his goal is not to be right; his goal is to have a fearful audience motivated to buy prepper supplies from his online store and his advertisers. Guns, ammo, body armor, gold, seeds, water filters, survival food – everything you need to survive the impending Armageddon.

If you aren’t afraid of Fukushima radiation, how many bottles of Alex-Jones brand iodine will you buy? Zero. If you aren’t afraid of “chemtrails” how many bottles of “Lung Cleanse” will you buy? None. The world ends each and every day on the Alex Jones podcast, and I’m sure that boosts sales to the slow-witted members of his audience.

You will never, ever hear Alex Jones recommend that you save for retirement. According to him, only an idiot would want to have money in the bank. Smart people prepare for retirement by filling up their attics with prepper supplies. Jones spends a lot of time demonizing the Federal Reserve Bank and the U.S. dollar. If he could undermine the financial system, money from bank accounts could be diverted to his store, the value of the gold buried in his back yard would soar, and he could cut the jugular vein of the federal government. For the same reason, Jones promotes tax-cheat con artists like Irwin Schiff, and urges his audience to “withdraw consent,” which is code for not paying taxes.

Jones’ two goals work together for his meta goal of getting rich off of the destruction of the United States government.

Family Dumpster

July 12th, 2014

On Thursday, Family Dollar Stores, Inc. (FDO) reported a sharp drop in profits, and said they would close 370 stores. When people can’t afford to shop at Sears anymore, they go to Walmart. When they can’t afford Walmart, the go to Family Dollar. But what is the next step down? Family Dumpster.

Now that the multinationals have off-shored the American middle class, the big question is: can they devise a way to monetize dumpster diving. Perhaps they can. I notice that dumpsters are no longer left unattended out back. Now they are enclosed in brick buildings. Maybe during the small hours of the morning, a sales rep from Family Dumpster could open the buildings and charge homeless people a fee to spelunk the dumpsters. I can hear the greeters now: “Welcome to Family Dumpster!”

But seriously, people who have been expelled from the capitalist economy against their will have another option: sharing. For example, if you have no job, but own a house, you can now generate income with the help of There are now such companies for sharing every conceivable thing from baby clothes to cars. And they are growing. Fast. And taking market share from capitalist incumbents.

An Airbnb IPO would probably see the company with a market-cap larger than Hyatt Hotels (H). And it would be poetic justice. As I reported in my book, companies like Hyatt are notorious for breaking unions, firing American workers, and replacing them with desperate immigrants at minimum wage – and then working those immigrants like Alaskan sled dogs. Now, former hotel workers are striking back and taking market share via Airbnb.

Ladies and Gentlemen. What we are seeing is nothing less than the suicide of capitalism. And let the record show that the American people did not turn their back on capitalism. It was international capitalists who turned their back on the American people. Turns out, allowing a fat, drunken, incompetent (David Rockefeller) to design the global economic system wasn’t such a good idea after all. Who knew?

Note: Here are some more sharing companies: Couchsurfing, RelayRides, Getaround, Liquid, Lending Club, Fon, SideCar, Poshmark, Neighborgoods.

Big Oil’s Revenge on Baghdad

June 29th, 2014

The fate of the Shiite regime that we installed in Baghdad was probably sealed back in 2009 during a televised oil auction at the Al-Rashid Hotel. The Iraqis took bids to see which oil companies would get contracts to pump Iraqi oil.

ExxonMobil shocked the audience with an astoundingly low bid. The giant company was willing to accept a mere $4.80 per barrel. But the audience was stunned again when the Ministry of Oil announced that the maximum they would pay was $2.

Can you imagine the audacity? Here we had just kindly destroyed their country, and now they were sticking it to us on oil profits. The bastards!

Which is, I’m sure, how the discussions went in the boardrooms of Big Oil. A couple of years later, ExxonMobil struck back. As I wrote in my book:

“In early 2012, ExxonMobil confirmed that they had signed an exploration and production deal with Iraq’s Kurdistan Regional Government. The Kurds are in defiance of Baghdad, and the deal has infuriated the Iraqi government. ExxonMobil has sided with the Kurds because they are easier to do business with, and if Baghdad doesn’t change its tune they just might get invaded again!”

And whoops! Baghdad is now under siege by Sunnis. Note to Maliki: payback’s a bitch.

(Am I a prophet or what? Obviously, you should buy my book immediately.)

Further evidence that we have turned our back on the Shiites is that we are doing virtually nothing to help them fight ISIS while Vladimir Putin has sent five Sukhoi fighter jets to Baghdad.

And you don’t have to take my word for it. Back in January, the Telegraph reported that the USA had given its seal of approval to ISIS.

Obama is telling Maliki: “We can do this the easy way or the hard way. You can step down and make way for a more pliable puppet, or Baghdad can burn.”

So far, Maliki is choosing the hard way.

“American Exceptionalism” is the Marketing Slogan of the Military Industrial Complex

June 22nd, 2014

It looks like our conquest of Iraq didn’t take. So, will we spend another trillion dollars, and thousands of lives to secure Iraq’s oil fields for Big Oil? One way to tell if such a plan is in the works is if media shills start shrieking about “American Exceptionalism” which is the marketing slogan of the military industrial complex.

Small wars, such as in Yemen, can be conducted with informing the American people. But larger wars still need to be sold, and as Eric Bernays taught us, wars are sold just like corn flakes or deodorant.

“American Exceptionalism” ranks right up there with Tony The Tiger’s “They’re G-r-r-r-eat!” and “By Mennen.”

Or, “Co-stanza.”
