Video: Why Alex Jones is very good and sometimes worth listening to...

While I agree that Mr. Jones is sometimes over the top, and presents some off the wall topics in a hyped up manner (Illuminati blood lines, aliens from outer space, etc.) he does a lot of good as well toward the Liberty Movement. This video is case in point:

Does Alex want to end ALL foreign aid?

If not then he's wrong about that.

"We have allowed our nation to be over-taxed, over-regulated, and overrun by bureaucrats. The founders would be ashamed of us for what we are putting up with."
-Ron Paul

Aliens from outer space? Since when?

Are you confusing him with George Noory?

Thanks!

I can seperate the message from the messenger

I listen to a lot of online podcasts and read a lot of stuff online that I have to do research about before determinng its truth value. It wouldn't matter if AJ, David Duke, or David Icke told me that 2+2=4, they would be correct. In the same way Albert Einstein could tell me 2+2=5 and he would be wrong. Its not about the person who delivers the message, its the message that must be validated. In my view, AJ has about a 90% accuracy rate. Thats pretty good, but I still double check things he says that set off my bullsh1t meter. I will say my bullsh1t meter stayed pegged when I used to watch the MSM.

I've learned far more truth online than from the idiot box...but it does take some effort to learn how to find out what is real and what is BS in the vast world of cyberspace. But at least the truth IS out there.

SteveMT's picture

I say amen to your great comment.

90% accuracy for Alex Jones is about what I would give him also. The talking heads get about 50%, and the MSM about 0-20% accuracy although the talking heads are worse than the MSM, IMO. Half truths are worse than little or no truth at all.

made my soul cry watching,

made my soul cry watching, those poor innocent children

Wow

Looks like there is and "infowar" going on right here on this post. Everyone is arguing over AJ instead of paying attention to important stuff. AJ is a sensationalist true enough but he holds up for the constitution, gun ownership, puts down the TSA, blows the whistle on what the NSA and DARPA are doing etc. Talks about things that attack our health and environment and more. He apparently is worthy enough that Ron and Rand Paul have gone on his show numerous times and were always treated cordially. True, he didn't start really pushing for Ron when it looked like he might actually win the nomination (which made me wonder WTF?) but AJ still picks up stories that matter and gets them posted. So just take what good you can from him and let the rest go. Geez.

skippy

Bump!

Great Clip.

Jewish wife or not - He still should not support U.S. aid to...

...Israel or ANY other country.

WHERE, WHERE, WHERE in the U.S. Constitution does it authorize congress to TAKE FROM AMERICAN CITIZENS and GIVE IT AWAY TO ANYONE???

IT EFFING DOESN'T.

Not even to OTHER AMERICANS, LET ALONE FOREIGN NATIONS.

NOWHERE DOES IT AUTHORIZE THIS.

PERIOD.

END OF SUBJECT.

-Ron Paul

When has Alex Jones defended Isarali Foreign Aid?

Just curious---I listen to him quite often, and I have never heard him say that Israel should get foreign aid.

And seriously, folks. I'm not sure why everyone is into shooting the messenger here. Sometimes Alex goes crazy---so tune him out. We're all grown-ups here (or, at least, I assume we are).

And yes, Alex Jones has given Ron Paul and his message a HUGE megaphone that he would never have had otherwise. So there are good things about him and his show.

So please---where does Alex support Israeli foreign aid?

Well said. ... But prepare to be downvoted!!

As there seems to be more Alex Jones trolls on here than I realised.

Alex Jones, is part of the same brigade that stole the 'Tea Party' from Ron Paul.

He is a paid for and bough disinformation agent. And there appear to be trolls on here, who's sole aim is to promote Alex Jones, and his 'looney' ideas.

I got trolled and insulted, within minutes of making an anti Alex Jones post. ... I have never before been downvoted on Daily Paul in my life. ... But to insult the sacred alex jones.... ooooohh

This is a Ron Paul site. ... If you want to dabble in stupid disinfo, and lies. Then go to an Alex Jones site. I am preparing to be flamed and down voted. As the Alex Jones trolls are out!!

No, he is what we call in the UK a 'Bell End'

No, Alex Jones is a liar and shameless self promoter.

He does not care about the truth... Think about it. Where does he get his money from?

What IS his aim? What makes him 'get up in the morning'? ... You think its a relentless search for truth.

The truth is, that this 'man' (and I use the term loosely), is not a journalist, nor an investigator, nor a person that sources his research or theories (although he does shamelessly copy them from others without crediting the original author).

The guy is a sleezeball. And there is plenty of evidence that we works for the FEDS. ... They love this kind of kook, in their dragnet as his job is to bring all the kooks to their attention.

Shock Jock, Hal Turner was also one of these types of informants http://vnnforum.com/showthread.php?t=146671

And everything about Alex Jones. From his money, to his contacts, to his SEO status on the net, to the sets. You think ordinary people put on shows in studios for Youtube with all that fancy graphics, camerawork etc etc. No, its funded.

And who funds things?

"It's funded"

Yeah, by advertisers! It's the free market. I'm also a producer on a radio show and graphics are not hard if you just have the software (one-time cost) and some manpower. Do you see how many products he endorses? He probably makes thousands of dollars a week for his show just from Youngevity.

I don't care what his agenda is. There is truth EVERYWHERE. I'd like to believe that Ron Paul is 100% right about everything, but he's not GOD, ok. Just because someone (like AJ) doesn't conform to our belief system 100% doesn't mean that they are a guaranteed disinfo agent and that everything they say is automatically a lie.

He's broadcasted strong support for ending drug prohibition, ending foreign wars, ending government regulation, ending corporate welfare. In fact, I can't think of more than a couple things that I'd disagree with him on... he's no worse than Jesse Ventura or Adam Kokesh. You can let something divide you (contention), you can sacrifice your principles and unite fully (compormise), or you can do as the Good Doctor says and work together where you can (coalition) and leave the rest alone.

Also

What is his 'aim'... Well its all too simple.

He has not succeeded (with government backing, or at the very least powerful help and promotion) to TAKE OVER the truth movement.

He fills peoples minds (especially Americans) with daft ideas. So that when they should be asking legitimate and normal questions, like 'how can 5 foreigners with only a few week traing as pilots outwit the most militarised country on the planet', of which we do need rational debate. But Alex Jones succeeds in replacing that debate with half assed 'red herrings'. ... It makes 'truthers' sound stupid.

I am from the UK. And I am VERY open minded. ... But when I went to the USA last time, I met a 'truther' telling me all kinds of crazy stuff. ... Same as when trying to discuss important issues, such as electonic voting on DailyPaul chat. Some weirdo is telling me that flouride is some kind of urgent thing. Bullshit.

Alex Jones is a disimformation agent. And his aim is to do several clever things. (a) dilute the real issues (b) put people onto other issues (some made up), and (c) to make people who's eyes have opened partly to sound STUPID. And they do sound stupid, if they regurgitate the lies of this fraud. I nearly called him a 'crackpot'. But he is not a crackpot. He KNOWS very well what he is doing. And he gets paid very well for it.

No, you are what we in the UK

No, you are what we in the UK call a bell-end.

Seriously, linking to VNN? Alex Jones does have some strange ideas, but he's done a whole lot more to promote liberty than you have.

Really 'Mr Compromise'

So...

1. Why do you insult me? Answer please?

2. How has Alex Jones 'done a lot more to promote liberty than me'?

3. How many sock puppets do you have? ... You seem to answer my post, get 2x upvotes and I get 3x downvotes in less than 2 minutes of me posting to say that Alex Jones is a disinformation agent.

4. Do you have the courage, to answer my questions. Or to use something other than two insults and no FACTS to try and brow beat me?

You are either brainwashed. Or you are a troll. ... And I am guessing a paid one.

1. You are clearly trying to

1. You are clearly trying to spread your white nationalist anti-liberty views, which I do not agree with. This isn't the Daily Duke.

2. This a conservative radio talk show host who sometimes gets 15 million viewers a week. His endorsement of Ron Paul has definitely helped libertarian ideas reach new people.

3. Any topic with Alex Jones in the title gets a lot of hits fast. A lot of people here like Alex Jones. As you are attacking him and I am defending him, naturally you will be downvoted and I will be upvoted. If you look at these posts now, you'll see there are also people that agree with you and the upvotes/downvotes have balanced out.

I'm not a paid troll because there is really nothing for anyone else to gain from me 'trolling' here, unless you're suggesting Alex Jones himself is paying me, which given my common criticism of him on here, is pretty unlikely.

You on the other hand, are on sale to the highest 'bidder', probably Nick Griffin in this case.

Really

1. So where have I ever had these views or posted them. If you are refering to the link. Its the 1st one on Google I pulled off regarding Hal Turner.

... If you want to find some other links regarding Hal Turner, then you can Google his name. He even admitted to it.

My point is that Alex Jones is the Hal Turner of the 'truther' movement. He is paid in the same way as Hal Turner, and for the same reasons.

You must be stupid, if you think I am have "white nationalist or anti liberty" views. lol. Why not read my other posts and see, before jumping to wrong conclusions.

But, then again. I suppose jumping to incorrect conclusions would be the type of things you do, if you are an avid Alex Jones fan.

Hal Turner was a paid Shock Jock, just like Alex Jones. And he was an informant to the FBI of white nationalists. Alex Jones is the same. He is an informant. And only an idiot would not be able to see though this! Who pays for his fancy shows, graphics, camera's and what was he doing prior to 1993?

"2. This a conservative radio talk show host who sometimes gets 15 million viewers a week. His endorsement of Ron Paul has definitely helped libertarian ideas reach new people."

No. He is not a conservative. He is whatever he can be to make money, and his views are certainly not political.

It is sad that he gets 15 million views. And also my point. Ron Paul has only 1 million likes on Facebook. Alex Jones is part of the establishment.

Just like the Tea Party. Which by the way, I was supporting Ron at that time. The Tea Party was taken over by insiders. Just like the liberty movement. The aim of Alex Jones is to take over the liberty movement and gain followers.

If he did endorse Ron Paul, is is to promote himself and get more cult followers. The man is a liar. And I dare you to prove to me, that he is not. He would sell ice cream to eskimo's to make a buck.

"3. Any topic with Alex Jones in the title gets a lot of hits fast." ... that is sad!

"A lot of people here like Alex Jones. As you are attacking him and I am defending him, naturally you will be downvoted and I will be upvoted. If you look at these posts now, you'll see there are also people that agree with you and the upvotes/downvotes have balanced out."

Yes. And this is a Ron Paul forum. I hate the fact that the CIA troll and disinfo agent Alec Jones makes this site look like it is a meeting place for idiots. ... How can I tell people about Ron Paul, if it looks like his views are associated with this idiot. Alex Jones is an insencere fraud. I bet he cries, just like Glen Beck.

"I'm not a paid troll because there is really nothing for anyone else to gain from me 'trolling' here, unless you're suggesting Alex Jones himself is paying me, which given my common criticism of him on here, is pretty unlikely."
... You seem to come here to promote Alex Jones. If you are not a troll, or paid for by him. And I wont call you a liar, then you are clearly brainwashed. ... I guess that you are afraid of Flouride, and Tesla radiation from HAARP

"You on the other hand, are on sale to the highest 'bidder', probably Nick Griffin in this case." ... Who is Nick Griffin?

I'm afraid of Americans

Lol. This all really reminds me of the David Bowie song, "I'm afraid of Americans".

I really am. lol.

Not your military, or stuff like that. What scares me, is the sheer naivety of you lot over the pond.

I mean. You will believe anything. Perhaps you have been bred or brainwashed to look for leaders. Or maybe its those 'action hero' films.

Although some do get it. They are still the minority. ... Ron Paul wants you to think for yourself. Not find some cult leader, or look to other for easy answers.

Your only aim, is to get back your ability to run your government. Thats it. You have electonic voting, and your ability to effect change is non-existent.

Neither is it blacks, communists, muslims, russians or liberals that are your problem. Its the fact that the American mind is brainwashed. You think that you are free. You are not. America has the most repressive election system in the world, controlled by machines. You have no money. Just paper.

Ron Paul wants YOU to become active in politics. Not building bunkers, protesting, avoiding fluoride or collecting guns. His message is that "We the People" have to take part at the grass roots and be involved in the political process. .. That means asserting your RIGHTS.

You primary RIGHT and what you missed, was to count the damn votes. I came on here to tell Americans that in the UK we vote in a paper ballot, counted by people. The paper ballot goes in a locked metal box, and we observe it. You think, and cry for Ron Paul to save you. What you did not realise was it was up to you. Up to you to assert your CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. Thats all you need.

You dont need Alex Jones. That peice of paper has all the answers. It says that you can OBSERVE ELECTIONS, and you can have real MONEY. And that you have RIGHT TO TRIAL. Protect that. Read that. Assert that. THAT is Ron Pauls message.

So forget all this in fighting, and looking to answers from others. Protect the constitution. Then you can all be free to do as you please.

When did Alex talk of aliens from outerspace?

Maybe you are confusing him with David Icke. Alex does not believe in space aliens.

I guess

because Alex has interviewed David Icke. I say so what. It all goes back to take the information that is out there and make up your own damn mind. Simple as that. If believing in Reptilian Illuminati bloodlines is not your thing great don't believe a word. If its convincing or resonates with you then also great, research a little deeper and come to your own conclusions. I don't understand why people can't just accept that there is a lot of information out there and ultimately the choice on believing what you want is up to you.

Personally I like Alex, I know he goes over the top alot! However I think in general he does more good than harm. Sometimes he comes off a little phony when he does his "crying" voice but again he's doing a hell of a lot more than I am, so, who am I to judge.
