Rolling Stones did a pretty "interesting" article on Alex Jones
It's just past 9 a.m. when Alex Jones pulls his Dodge Charger into a desolate parking lot in Austin. From the outside, the squat, single-story office complex that Jones calls his "command center" resembles a moon base surrounded by fields of dying grass. But inside, blinking banks of high-tech recording gear fill the studio where he broadcasts The Alex Jones Show, a daily talk show that airs on 63 stations nationwide. Jones draws a bigger audience online than Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck combined — and his conspiracy-laced rants make the two hosts sound like tea-sipping NPR hosts on Zoloft.
A stocky 37-year-old with a flop of brown hair and a beer gut, Jones usually bounds into the studio, eager to launch into one of his trademark tirades against the "global Stasi Borg state" — the corporate-surveillance prison planet that he believes is being secretly forged by an evil cabal of bankers, industrialists, politicians and generals. This morning, though, Jones looks deflated. Five days ago, a mentally disturbed 22-year-old named Jared Loughner opened fire on a crowd in Tucson, Arizona, killing six and seriously wounding Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Loughner was reported to be a fan of Loose Change, a film Jones produced that has become the bible for those who believe 9/11 was an inside job.

Silver Circle was recently granted access to a sneak peek of Atlas Shrugged: Part I, based on Ayn Rand’s novel Atlas Shrugged. As filmmakers ourselves, the excitement and anticipation grew as we entered the screening in San Diego where others buzzed about their expectations for the film. The screenwriter, John Aglialoro, was there to present the film and take questions following its debut. The filmmakers were also giving away one version of the movie poster, a simple white poster with the words “Who is John Galt?” scribbled on them. I didn’t manage to get my hands on the poster, but if I were you, grab one if you get the opportunity. It is a part of history.
The film surprised me immediately when it uncovered the setting in the 2010′s. As timeless as Ayn Rand’s novel was, I personally lived in the mid 20th century while reading it. If you can imagine the differences this would play in understanding the world around the characters, you can understand the shock after this discovery.
The film will be a trilogy. The filmmakers announced at the screening that the following parts will come year by year: Part II – April 2012 & Part III April 2013. Sounds like forever, huh? Let’s remember it does take a few weeks to read about 1100 page book (and that’s tackling a heavy load each day). If you have read the novel you know cramming a 1/3 of its events into a 90-minute film would be difficult. The budget is also modest for this film (about $10 mil), so as you complain about waiting for years to finally complete the Atlas Shrugged film experience, realize funding has much to do with its timeliness and quality.
I had two comments on Part I:

MoRtiS NoCTu here, I'm back with my 2 latest R3VOLutionary Rap tracks. I recorded both these songs and put the video together for InfoWars.com's "The Answer to 1984 is 1776 Video Contest".
The beats, as usual, are made from Pink Floyd samples, by producer/artist Dert. And the video is a compilation of great posters submitted to InfoWars by Patriots like us for the "V For Victory" poster campaign.
I incorporated the lyrics visually into the video this time, so people can read along as I rap.
I hope you all enjoy this!! Wish me luck! Comments and "Like"s on the actual YouTube page would be MUCH appreciated! Subscribe to my YouTube channel to be notified as I release my latest material!

Here is a link to the alternate version, which is the same video except without the lyrics on-screen. Once you see the lyrics and know what I'm saying its nice to have an unobstructed view of the V For Victory Posters:
“The most likely outcome is that the recent rise in commodity prices will lead to, at most, a temporary and relatively modest increase in U.S. consumer price inflation,” Bernanke said in prepared remarks to the Senate Banking Committee.
"Bill Would Make Some Airport Screening Sexual Assault
Those Convicted Would Be Tier III Sex Offenders
CONCORD, N.H. -- A House committee is scheduled to hold a hearing Tuesday on a bill that would make it a sexual assault for an airport screener to touch or view a person's breast or genitals without probable cause.
The bill (HB628-FN) includes anyone working as a security agent of the federal, state, or local government, and includes touching or viewing with a "technological device."
The bill states "discussing or possessing a copy of the Constitution, discussing the security apparatus of an airport, being on the premises of an airport, possessing an airplane ticket or any other type of ticket for access to mass transportation, driving a motor vehicle on a public way, or ownership of firearms" should not be considered probable cause.
Anyone convicted of the offense would be classified as a tier III sex offender. Tier III sex offenders are registered for life and must remain on the public list of sex offenders.
The bill is scheduled to be heard by the House Criminal Justice Committee shortly at 11:15 a.m."

Police and Fireman: Why Did TSA Pat Down Kids, Adults Getting Off Train? Now we are being searched getting off of trains WTF?Submitted by Neverquit on Tue, 03/01/2011 - 09:04
A Florida firefighter says he couldn't believe it when Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents gave "intrusive" pat-downs to passengers including kids getting off an Amtrak train in Savannah, Georgia earlier this month.
Lt. Brian Gamble, 38, of Leesburg, Florida, posted video of the incident on YouTube. And the TSA is now apologizing.
Gamble, who also works part-time as a travel agent, tells AOL Travel News he was bringing a small group that included other firefighters and policemen to Savannah for a Valentine's Day getaway. They were among 30 or 40 people getting off the train when he says TSA officers ordered everyone into the terminal.
"They sent us all into a roped-off holding area and said 'Y'all are going to be searched,'" Gamble says. "We were getting off the train. This didn't make sense.
We caught up with Congressman Ron Paul after his speech at the Tea Party Patriots American Policy Summit in Phoenix over the weekend. One of the themes of that speech was that America cannot impose democracy upon the rest of the world. However, unaddressed was whether America ought to protect allies who are free and wish to remain so. Here was our follow-up with the congressman.
NRB: David Horowitz and others have been critical of the effect that your foreign policy would have upon Israel… How would you describe a libertarian vision for alliance that could support democracies where people want to determine their own course while under threat by external forces?
