Esquire Publishes Shockingly Fair Profile of Alex Jones

Turning point for mainstream media?

Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com | August 20, 2013

Esquire Magazine has broken ranks with the majority of the biased mainstream media by writing a shockingly fair and at times warm and humorous profile of Alex Jones.

It’s quite the departure from last week’s MSNBC hit piece, during which Alex Wagner and guests all but blamed Jones for the Boston Bombings and accused him of “getting paid to be racist.”

Entitled Alex Jones: Father Knows Best, Updated for the Apocalypse, John H. Richardson’s piece offers an insight into the background and mind of Alex Jones as the journalist accompanies Jones on a family holiday in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

The credit cards are all maxed out.

The DHS, TSA, etc. are buying every bullet they can get their hands on. Our tax dollars are being used to pay for this by the way.

This administration ordered a stand down in Benghazi allowing deaths and the theft of weapons for our alleged enemies. (The same group that miraculously took out building 7)

We now have a law that allows this same insane regime to "detain" or "kill" anyone it wants. Patriots?

We have a taxing enforcement organization that targets those who do not support this regime while again using tax dollars to do it.

We are borrowing against our children's' tax future to pay for wars all over the world.

We have a government that spies on anyone it wants and can use that information to manipulate anyone.

I say it's time to get emotional, loud!

Will someone please pay ME for fighting this full time? I don't have the time or desire to develop my own radio show.

John H. Richardson was on AJ show, today:

Acclaimed Author Takes The Red Pill

Published on Aug 20, 2013

John H. Richardson, the veteran writer who profiled Alex Jones in the September 2013 issue of Esquire joins the show to discuss his feature on Alex as well as his late father who served in the CIA throughout the Cold War. Richardson details his father's assignments in his book My Father the Spy: An Investigative Memoir.

*** Sadly, don't think he actually took the Red Pill, yet; apparently he's dearly using up his Blue Pills, still.

Even knowing what he knows, Richardson exhibits the same exact delusional statist self-brainwashing rationalization seen in any and EVERY 'I kinda know all these things, but when you point it out to me, I'm still gonna say you're making leaps and connecting dots where they don't exist'-"educated idiot"-'liberals;' so apparently an intentional, designed, CIA-instigated military overthrow that was MEANT to result in leadership decapitation, is still "NOT an assassination," in his 'I still need my Big Daddy, even if he beats me up, lies to my friends and his father just so he can get close to him to assassinate him'-mind.

These delusional, "educated idiot" Nazi-enablers in EVERY SINGLE epoch, is WHY we continue to have tyranny.

Sickening. Truly all the more sickening, seeing as how Richardson actually studied/researched relevant history, particularly the potent era in which his own father was part of, yet still cannot bring himself to admit the obvious: your father aided the Empire in mass murder and is DIRECTLY responsible for assassinations. Tough shiit, John. Deal with it!

You know what's hilarious? His father started off wanting to be an academic researcher: an anthropologist. In fact, anthropology is where CIA still recruits a lot of their current assets, today: they get to enter hot spots as members of CIA-front or affiliated NGO to do 'cultural liasing' with 'oppressed minorities' in a given hot spot they're tasked to 'help': always fertile ground for disgruntled political dissidents and former insiders looking for an 'exit' or advance pay.

Now, even if he were truly naive, his own intellect should tell him that once or twice, the Ruling Class and their functionaries maybe 'too eager to rid evil' so they got "accidentally carried away," but when that is de jure the ONLY modus operandi they repeated deploy, all throughout history, all over their colonial targets?? Think even RainMan's going "Duh? Kinda obvious! Yeah, yeah, definitely obvious!"

A mental midget would be more honest enough to admit to oneself the obvious, than a highly 'educated idiot' who's apparently only good at rationalizing idiocy to oneself, because they cannot reconcile reality to what they WANT to believe: yeah, and 'we' are supposed to be the "delusional ones who connect dots where they don't exist," eh??

Alex has done more for liberty than any of you arm chair generals will ever do. And his method of delivery is part of what made him grow and popularity. Without it his influence would not be as far reaching. So grow a pair and quit shaking in your boots and apologizing for Jones and instead attack the military industrial complex or whatever name you want to give to our corrupt government.


AMEN brother, AMEN!

AJ's a genuine American Liberty success story: who else here can personally, honestly claim or attest that you have personally, individually, single handedly, awoken MILLIONS of minds, WORLDWIDE, who was able to build a wholly 100% independent alternative media operation with a still exponentially growing audience base everyday, whom, in fact, literally paved the way for the most effective alternative media operation model IN THE WORLD, and 'built his own niche,' whereby it grew from 1, then two men, to 7, to now employing 50+ crew, with exponential growth curve, who is still here, risking it all??

Seriously, given the option, you really think it's worth being a ginormous target of ridicule, let alone, an actual target by PTB?

To all his detractors: simply ask yourselves, if there were NO Alex Joneses of the world, today, his 'obnoxious' rants and all, do you honestly think the world would be a 'better' place, let alone have the critical mass of awakened citizenry that we DO have, right now??

Think you can do a better job? I'd say GO FOR IT! I and others may even support ya, if you can demonstrate that you can run a self-sustaining business model doing what you do!

I could easily guarantee that if ANYONE has been online since 1997, and has watched ANY single documentary that may have led them watching and researching a few more, you MUST have come across at least ONE of AJ's films, even IF when you watched his stuff, you didn't like him or believe the info being presented at the time. If you say you haven't: 1. you're lying 2. you haven't researched at all. You will come across his info whether you like it or not.

The only reason people bitch about AJ, is BECAUSE he's simply been at crossroads of almost every single important breaking news event since the late 1990's. Like it or not, if you're online and researching geopolitics, you almost CAN'T HELP BUT to 'bump into his stuff!' LOL

Whether anyone likes it or not, Alex Jones' online operation is THE alternative media model by which EVERYONE begrudgingly copies or wants to emulate, even if they think they can do it differently or better; Glennella Beck is 100% $200 million astroturf-IMPOSTER 'infowars' operation greenlit and funded by FauxNews. BS he was 'fired' because he got 'too extreme.' Glenn Beck, that pansy crybaby motherfcuker and his operation are as phony as a beachfront property in Arizona! That should go without saying, to anyone awake.

But the most hilarious part? All AJ's detractors, whether you're a neoCON/neoLIB/RINO or even some here, y'all seem to forget that about 80~90% of all the articles at InfoWars.com/PrisonPlanet.com are simply aggregated daily news links from mostly MSM sources! LOLOLOLOL!!!

What's most disgusting is, observing some even here at DP try to dismiss AJ and/or anyone who have independently researched geopolitics, 9/11, NWO, etc. and came to same or similar conclusion, as "Conspiracy Theorists," a disgustingly pathetic and childish neoConFcuk smear-tactic!

It's utterly disgusting, considering how everyone and anyone who's ever smeared Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul for discussing the Federal Reserve as being the real mechanism of the global ruling class banksters, CFR, Trilateral, COG, UN Agenda 21, NAU, etc. have also done the same, and ridiculed him as "a kook, and a conspiracy theorist"!!!

The fact that, that's all they can resort to, is pretty revealing of their insecurities.

Sometimes I literally cannot believe that the world's going to shiit, country and the currency and the entire basis of the current economic model is collapsing all around us, with the police state ever entropying faster than ever, everyday, some here are still dickering over how even WHEN they agree with AJ, because they find him to be obnoxious, they want to not just ignore, but smear him, as IF he's some evil bankster or neoCon goon.

It's petty, pathetic, but most importantly, it's a waste of time, and a fruitless pursuit to be deluding biitching here about AJ will 'diminish' or lessen his influence or presence or something, or change the world for the better, for that matter.

Really, don't we have more important tasks or even things to discuss or biitch about, than what or whom Alex Jones is, blah blah blah??

Truly wish people would focus on the important issues at hand, and not various personalities in the liberty movement, like this whole thing is supposed to be some TMZ yap-fest.

"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." - Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul

It's comments like these

that make so many others become generally annoyed with AJ fans.

It's about the message, not the man.

This whole "he's done more than you" argument is illogical, for one. What have YOU done? Who are *you* to judge others you've never met? How does one go about measuring intangible accomplishments?

That's like me saying "you can't criticize Gigli! How many movies have YOU directed?" Or even "you can't criticize Obama! How many times have YOU been President?" See how that works?

Also, this overly macho "grow a pair" nonsense does nothing but create division: anyone who doesn't get behind AJ is a coward, slave, et cetera. Might as well just say "either you're with us or you're with the terr'ists", because that's the kind of attitude so often displayed by AJ's Greek chorus.

Being a fan of Alex Jones and the information he puts out is one thing, but some people put him on this impossibly high pedestal and take any and all criticisms as some sort of personal attack. Enough with the cult of personality crap.

A signature used to be here!

Apparently it is only illogical...

... in the frame of reference of a few. The positive response to both man and message were of a magnitude that has considreably expanded his reach.


"Have these people gone crazy, or do they actually see something the rest of us don't?"

I'm going with the latter.

The depths of corruption and criminality in our government is unfathomable. That most people are oblivious and apathetic to it, is frustrating and downright infuriating.

When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign: that the dunces are all in confederacy against him. ~J. Swift

Some of you guys are pathetic cowards.

If there was ever a time to get upset, why not now? Many of you will calmly and professionally voice an opinion without making waves, up to and including being drug off to a FEMA camp.

Please Mr. Gestapo, if it wouldn't be too much trouble, could you not rape my wife? Please?

The way Alex has acted on occasion on TV...

I think his crazy behavior may actually inadvertently bring people to the movement. So somebody watches him, finds him to be totally crazy, checks out his show or channel, expecting to see him act like a total fool. But then they find him and his cohosts to be totally reasonable, or they find one of his points interesting. Then they go and do some research on their own.

So Alex's shock value and flamboyant attitude may inadvertently attract people to the movement.

It is hardly inadvertent!

He knew exactly how to correctly get attention by showing anger at the smarmy, undermining tone of the MSM.

Could you imagine how much impact he would have gotten by being PC?

"Well, I beg to differ" (interrupted with skewed talking points).

"I think that maybe you should consider possibly being more ..." (interrupted with skewed talking points).

AJ knew exactly what he was doing with his rants and they equalled his natural flow and feeling and echoed the same in many, many, many people -- and most of all, it worked.

I upvoted you.

the writer...

obviously had a hard time reconciling everything Alex was saying through the filter of his left-right paradigm and it showed, but it was a decent article non the less...


I have a hard time with his delivery--

but I know some people in Texas who have met him and say he is a really 'nice' guy--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

The link

is in the article.

Some of us...

namely me... refuse to traffic AJ's site. While I would love to see a fair article on AJ. I personally refuse to traffic his site until he can act like a grown adult on national television.


'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

You should try


I found it..

Halfway through.. and it seems the writer has the same feelings as I do.

Really good article in the fact that is in sincere. It doesn't give Alex a free pass to act like a fkn retard on national TV.

Passionate or not... Alex should grow up and quit giving the opposition ammunition.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul


He should be more like you when he goes on TV and start calling people "fkn retards". lol

the difference?

Im not on radio or national television. I know how to act when under pressure, scrutiny and acting as agent for a movement.

This is the DailyPaul. Not national TV. Ill call anyone in our movement fkn retards that act like Alex Jones on national TV.

'Peace is a powerful message.' Ron Paul

Hey, P. Nicholson your a fkn retard.AJ is

Hey P. Nicholson your a fkn retard.
AJ is the bullhorn of the Liberty movement.
Been doing his thing for 18 years or more.
200+ million views of his films and programs over the years.
He gets people stirred up one way or the other, but he gets their attention.
How many times has Dr. Paul been on his program. 30 or 40 and counting.
He gave Dr. Paul a huge boost in his campaign for POTUS before anyone else. And his listeners were a major part of Dr. Pauls campaign contributions
I put him second to Dr. Paul for pushing the Liberty movement to the forefront of the national debate.
So why don't you take a fkn hike.

“It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds”
-Sam Adams

We are all unique

AJ developed his high profile by being what he was in that interview, obviously there are a lot of people who appreciate that kind of approach.

I don't believe in adopting a veneer for the sake of appearances, and if he felt inclined to rave then what right do we have to suggest how he "should" behave.

I suspect that their may have been quite a few people that he reached due to being a voice for their frustration. I will admit that I felt somewhat delighted seeing Piers get some of his own ;)

Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

I'm sorry

but, that is just too damn logical.

Why did you think that would be appropriate in modern discourse?


egapele's picture

Great article.

Snippet worth sharing:

However extreme and paranoid and downright cartoonish his unending stream of alarm can be, Jones believes every word he says and can prove it with a personal stash of food big enough to last three years. And if they bothered to look without prejudice, these righteous leftists would see that Jones covers issues like the drug war, the growing security state, and Monsanto's genetic modification of food exactly the way they do, just as many of his themes were echoed by the Occupy movement. Their personal attacks just evade the far more troubling question of why so many people on all sides of the political spectrum now believe such radical ideas - why the coal-mine canaries who scream about poison gas whenever hard times come have suddenly appeared everywhere, flocking left and right and straight into the halls of Congress. At a time when America seems to be minting a thousand new Alex Joneses every day, the bigger question is: What changed? Have these people gone crazy, or do they actually see something the rest of us don't? How do you make an Alex Jones?

That was shockingly fair and balanced. An excellent read.

Great Article about Alex Jones

This was an awesome read. I hope to buy this issue of Esquire when it comes out. If you did not read the entire article, it is worth the time to read it.
