sometimes Alex gets stuff like this and runs with it. He also sometimes projects incorrect things onto callers (like they support obama/are commies etc) before taking on the callers point.

I'm still a big AJ fan though. His heart is in the right place imho.

FAILED PREDICTIONS??

Let's start with Obama and Bush? This is more important than some un-informed person making a frivolous remark like this...a waste of time.

Voted up because the truth

Voted up because the truth isnt always pretty.

Why not make a list of 42

Why not make a list of 42 lies by Obama...or Bernanke...or any of those traitors? I'm sure we could easily find over 100 as they are so frequent.

I seem to remember AJ predicting 9-11 a couple months before it happened.

Do you really believe AJ is against the Constitution and your freedoms?

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

He makes predictions all the time

He's bound to get it right sometimes. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.

"Do you really believe AJ is against the Constitution and your freedoms?"

I think his intentions are good, he's just too impulsive and is somewhat of a fearmonger.

“It is not our part to master all the tides of the world, but to do what is in us for the succour of those years wherein we are set, uprooting the evil in the fields that we know, so that those who live after may have clean earth to till." -J.R.R. Tolkien

It's how you wake people up.

It's how you wake people up. How many millions has Alex woken up to what is going on?

Don't know why all the hate for this video

If it were 42 failed predictions of Obama or Paul Krugman then I guarantee it would be upvoted.

I was emailed this by some source I was unable to trace

After I watched it the first time I thought, damn, is AJ fake, but I realized that news reports can cause these guys to think things are about to happen. Alex Jones isn't helping himself making predictions, but he is a big, big part of people learning there is an agenda. Ron Paul would not of had as much recognition in 2008 if it wasn't for AJ and Aaron Russo.

Agenda 21, PNAC, CODEX ALIMENTARIUS and UN biodiversity study. Help me understand why I shouldn't think there is a big agenda against the wishes of the masses.

It is nice to be able

to express my own opinion...and I have to say that Alex Jones brought me to Ron Paul and has opened my eyes to many many things. Gulf of Tonkin just to name one. So, in regards to your post, I disagree. 100% I have several of Alex Jones's DVD's....and they are awesome. Is he wrong on some things...of course.....is he trying his best to wake people up...yes...he woke me up. So rather than lash out at you, I would like to understand your motive?

the op is just a reaction.

any time there's a lot of threads on any subject: bitcoin, gary johnson, infowars etc you'll get "anti" threads popping up. This is one of those.

I don't understand why

Why in the world does this post have so many downvotes? It really shows how impulsive Alex Jones is in what he says. He you think what he says may be true, but when he's setting specific dates, he's just being impulsive.

A lot of what he says goes like this: govt event -> Deathes -> public support. This is correct, but he's viewing it more than a theory, he's "predicting" but it is really, baseless.

In short, what Jones says can't always be taken seriously.

Thanks for posting

Thanks for posting Katniss.
Every so often I trudge through fact checking one of the Infowars "reports" and haven't found one that isn't a wreck of misinformation yet.

All stories

All the Infowars stories you've looked up are misinformation? How many would you say you've researched roughly?

Agenda 21, PNAC, CODEX ALIMENTARIUS and UN biodiversity study. Help me understand why I shouldn't think there is a big agenda against the wishes of the masses.

Sure. When I discovered Ron

Sure.

When I discovered Ron Paul a year and a half ago, I found this forum and started reading. I kept coming across posts with links to AJ, a few of which I followed. My husband had heard of him before and said he was into lizard space aliens who controlled the world. AJ's tone was so off-putting (much like Limbaugh and that ilk) and his credibility so obviously suspect that I figured he was simply entertainment for most folks -- like Coast-to-Coast, Oprah, and that sort of thing.

I didn't realize that some folks here took him seriously for quite some time. I went through a couple of his website's "articles" just to check my assumptions about his credibility. I can't remember what they were; I didn't document my findings as they were only for myself. (I think they were about some of his more out-there claims.)

More recently, I've taken to documenting my fact checking for this site. I don't think anyone who trusts AJ's crew's reporting ever reads them, but they've been fun for me. So far I've done two. I doubt that every AJ report is so blatantly false, but I picked ones that struck me as unlikely.

This one on an Infowars piece about Bill Gates trying to depopulate through polio vaccines.

This one on an Infowars piece that said the DOJ was going to confiscate guns.
http://www.dailypaul.com/275847/red-alert-doj-memo-outlaw-an...

Try it. Find an article with claims that strike you as unlikely. Find the original source material (not necessarily the citation provided in IW pieces). Check it against how Infowars writes about it.

I'll take your challenge.

I'll take your challenge. Give me one at random.

You said you will accept my challenge, I just care about

our future. What do you think of Agenda 21?

I would love to know our future isn't being manipulated by the UN, the world banks and CFR.

Do you think this agenda will effect the way people live in a negative way?

Do you think there is no agenda 21?

funny how people try so hard to contradict

people who are on the right path trying to bring awareness on whats really going on.

you are just a troll and cant get over the fact that Romney lost. Troll!

sharkhearted's picture

DOWNVOTED

And duly so.

Alex Jones ain't perfect....but he is orders of magnitude better than this disinformation bulls*h*i*t campaign.

Take your forum here...and its content....and stuff it up where the sun don't shine.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

First and foremost, I don't really trust anything I read anymore

I need my own verification of information to reach my own opinions and conclusions.

That said, Alex Jones has lead me to an awareness which I previously did not have.

Katniss, you've lead me nowhere and have taught me nothing.

I used to be Alex Jones Fan

I used to be Alex Jones Fan but not anymore. I found out that he is behind the New World Order Agenda and their purpose to create a violence and chaos from "leftist vs rightist". However, some of their news are good for us to know.

When you understand the game of chess theory, then you will stay away from Alex Jones' movement.

Fail

In my opinion, he must be over the target or he would be a non-issue. I am going to bookmark info wars dot com now. Thanks for the post!

Katniss, what does this prove?

Obviously, this is like a headline that reads:

Jesus heals man on the Sabbath Day.

or

Jesus' followers harvest corn on the Sabbath Day.

or

Jesus forgives man of his sins AND heals a man on the Sabbath Day.

Why don't you anti Alex Jones zombies step away from your TV's for 60 days and watch how your life changes! Stop drinking the Matrix cool-aid. Try unplugging from the MSM pundits' opinions and try some quiet time with God or your own conscience. Try DOING some good instead of attacking a good man who puts not just his life on the line, but his family's as well.

Katniss, are you going to cheer when/ or IF Alex gets shot dead 20 times by the police on the roadside or in his own home? Really, is that how zombified you are? And this goes for the other Alex Jones detractors here. For your OWN welfare, wake up out of your trance, because I do believe you must be in a media-induced trance to be continually attacking a good man.

No, he's not Jesus, NO he's not a prophet, but ironically, he is not with honor in his own country, as he is the target of sensational-sounding headlines like this one. It's an obvious attack piece. And if you're attacking Alex, you are attacking Freedom and the Constitution of limited government, and you are supporting tyranny.

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a rEVOLution before tomorrow morning." - Henry Ford

complete rubbish!

Your comment doesn't allow for another perspective and opinion, how shallow, how narrow minded is this? Completely counter to Ron Paul's message.

To say people are zombies because they don't drink at the Alex Jone's kool-aid station is rather childish and arrogant.

Your reasoning and judgement remind of the nonsense I get from neocons, jingoists and coercionists, which is "if you don't think like I do, then you're a sheeple or a zombie."

Something to think about or not.

"Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten."
— G.K. Chesterton

Since when...

is Alex Jones considered a mystical prophet? Even the best political/economic/social analysts are often wrong about predicting specific consequences and timings.

Alex Jones presents news items and then gives his opinions on what they mean. He doesn't claim anything else. He doesn't claim to be a biblical prophet or god.

Alex Jones main theme is that Govts do heinous and brutal things against humanity and that they are coming for our freedoms. All of which is demonstrably true and in perfect agreement with the warnings from the Founding Fathers and others philosophers of human liberty INCLUDING RON PAUL.

These attacks on and hatred of Alex Jones are becoming neurotic and/or are signs of a dishonest political agenda. Alex Jones is just a guy who basically gives all his media products away for free while giving the option to pay for them as a means to support Alex's effort if the viewer/listener so chooses.

This is getting psychotic and ridiculous...

~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

My philosophy....

Listen to everyone (even Alex Jones), research for yourself and make up your OWN MIND!

the amount of downvotes on this post

shows how stupid this website can be.

comments like yours show how

comments like yours show how stupid people are.

“Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”
― Ron Paul

How is...

expressing a dislike of unwarranted invalid criticism "stupid"? Neither Alex Jones or his audience claim he is a mystical prophet or god. He's just a guy who points to news story in the media and gives his analysis and opinion on what it all means.

You seem to be anti-freedom of opinion....

.
~wobbles but doesn't fall down~

Isn't this the same argument

many give about the book of Revelations...
And not unlike what the MSM had to say about Ron Paul?

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

Are you suggesting the Bible

Are you suggesting the Bible is as credible as Alex Jones? In a way, I have to agree.
