Post Re: Today Infowars, Tomorrow Booktalk?
Clearing bookmarks, these about Leftist fascism. Until Trump, we had 30+ years of US presidents pipelining American taxpayer dollars to Communist China, to build up that economy. But Trump has shut that valve for a while. We shall see what happens. A lot of the money was put to use developing the Chicom 'Social Credit System.' Read about it below. It's coming to America and the Fourth Reich of the EU, if all goes according to globalist plans. Alex Jones has been reporting on this stuff for a quarter century now. He warned about the rise of the leftist techno-fascists, and now we see those companies accumulating more and more power. And they've become so white-hot fascist about Jones that even mentioning his NAME now in a Youtube video gets the video pulled. On the other platforms you can use his name, but it must be in a censorious way. If you Like a positive comment about Jones, or God forbid Share it, then you suffer the consequences.

The Jones thing and the continuing online persecution of conservative figures is just the fascist Left fine tuning the tools they plan to use to cheat in the 2020 elections. By then, when you type Donald Trump's name into Google, the first hundred pages of returns will be negative reports on him. Millions of Twitter accts will be suspended or disrupted on or about Election Day, so that conservatives can't share poll monitoring info. And of course it will be announced that Melania Trump is carrying the child of a black man. The Dems always have to get sex and race in there. So the Leftist NYTimes and Washington Post will lead with the Melania story, then print a retraction the day after the election. This or something very much like it is what's coming, folks.

But back to the bookmarks:

China’s new ‘social credit system’ is a dystopian nightmare
A low social credit score will exclude you from well-paid jobs, make it impossible for you to get a house or a car loan or even book a hotel room. The government will slow down your internet connection, ban your children from attending private schools and even post your profile on a public blacklist for all to see.

Happy De-Platforming: Truth Is The New 'Hate-Speech'
...That lockdown is in the process of being reasserted. It is being done by suppressing dissenting or just different viewpoints via what is styled (in the hideous jargon of technocratic tyranny) “de-platforming,” which means barring any person who produces “objectionable” material from making it available through entities such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and so on – all of them owned, it is important to point out, by the same cartel or might as well be – as in the case of the New York Times, Washington Post and LA Times....

Doug Casey: Orwell’s Worst Nightmare Is Coming True
Stop saying offensive words. That’s what the Associated Press (AP), the world’s largest news agency, is telling reporters. The AP puts out a stylebook every year that includes universal guidelines for stylistic matters like punctuation, capitalization, and even word choice. In a recent version, it encouraged writers to not use words such as “pro-life,” “migrant,” “refugee,” “Islamist,” and “terrorist.”

Alex Jones offers $1M reward to find person he says put child porn on his servers
washingtonexaminer.com/news/alex-jones- ... is-servers

As part of a court case Alex Jones had to turn over thousands of emails. The FBI notified him that several contained metadata associated with child pornography. Jones has said he will make the code public so that experts can comb through it and locate the ISPs and individuals who created the code. He's offered a million bucks to whoever provides the damning evidence. He WILL get his answer with that kind of bounty. Sad thing is, the same thing could be done with Hillary Clinton's emails from when she was Sec of State and distributing Top Secret info to our enemies via her private server. That code could be tracked to see who was paying Clinton. But no, the intelligence agencies won't allow that.

It is the habit of the Leftist cabal in Washington to accuse the opposition of what they, the Leftists, are guilty of. They accused Trump of colluding with Russia when it was Hillary Clinton who paid a British spy to get in touch with his Russian contacts and concoct a phony dossier. She also helped broker the deal to sell Russia 20% of America's uranium. And then her people accused Trump of colluding with Russia. The same thing's going on now with Jones being accused of having child pornography on his computers. Pedophilia is close to the hearts of the old-guard Washington power establishment. I suspect they're trying to get ahead of the story, so they can control it if it should break in earnest. Jones is on a crusade right now, attacking the attempted normalizing of pedophilia in America. Drag Queen story hours are being forced by the Feds on local libraries. Convicted child molesters are dressing up in drag and terrorizing children with stories about how loving it is to be a drag queen.

Jones was threatened with porn charges once before. I'll look for the video before I post this. He was going to a Bilderberg meeting in Canada, in 2008 I think it was. That was back when people were calling him crazy for believing in the Bilderberg Group. "Do you want fries with that Bilderberger?" Yuk, yuk. Anyway, he was stopped at the Canadian border, and the guards had orders to keep him out of the country. So they detained him and his crew at customs for hours. According to Jones one of the guards told him that if they found one picture of one exposed tit on any of the Infowars computers, then they would all be going to prison for ten years. But they didn't find anything, and after several hours hundreds of Jones supporters surrounded the customs station and began chanting. They let Jones and his people go, and he bullhorned the hotel where the Queen of the Netherlands, Henry Kissinger and others were holding their meeting, deciding how to guide humanity for the next year. Video from that bullhorning. This is classic Alex Jones:

Alex Jones Bullhorns Bilderberg Group
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwErcWaRXkc

The meeting was held in Chantilly, Virginia the next year, but I can't find the video of him bullhorning that event. A local supporter rigged a bullhorn that filled the back of his truck bed, and they backed it up facing the hotel. The blast rattled the windows. Employees came out and asked him to please stop because people inside literally could not hear themselves think. lol

Alex Jones has been a thorn in the side of the establishment for a while now. Their attempts to bankrupt him have failed, so now they're adopting more sinister methods to get rid of him. I hope we have the name of the person who did the metadata alteration by the end of the week. Odds are it will be an employee of the CIA. The CIA has an interesting way of paying its informants. It deposits money in an account and then sends a notification email to the informant. The notification contains the code with which to access the deposit, so of course you have to click on the email. When you do, a packet of child pornography photos is hidden on your hard drive. From that point on, the CIA can have local law bust you at any time. So my bet is CIA.

EDIT: That video clip of Jones may be from one of the Bilderberg meetings at Chantilly. Things get blurry ten years back. Good speech though.

Poor Alex Jones. How does one work up sympathy for a man who pushes the vile contention that 20 kids didn't die at Sandy Hook Elementary School? A man who cares so little about the suffering of the kids as they died and the parents who continue to suffer? And if you, KindaScholarly, believe his toxic crap, I'm sorry but you need reprograming.

And that's what makes you a fascist, Dwill--you want to dictate what others can say and believe. Your heroine also wanted to send people to "reprogramming" camps, but she called them "fun camps."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnqTCah_03g

So when did Alex Jones say that nobody died at the Sandy Hook school shooting? I remember he put out a 20-thousand dollar reward for proof that he said that, but nobody ever claimed the money. Or did they? Can you post the clip, please? I may have missed it, but even the far-left disinfo site BuzzFeed doesn't push that story anymore.

In the past week the mainstream media reported that Jones lost a defamation case for a book he wrote called Nobody Died at Sandy Hook. Only problem is, he never wrote the book. Two other guys did, and the media merely attached Jones' name to the story for a couple of hours, then edited it out. Jones' staff saved screenshots of the original.

Also this week the media reported that Jones called the Sandy Hook lawyers "white Jew-boys." Problem is, he said "white-shoe boys." It's a term for Ivy Leaguers.

The destruction of Alex Jones seems to be of paramount importance to the Washington establishment and its compliant media.

Jones had James O'Keefe on his show today. O'Keefe founded Project Veritas, and he's just released a bombshell undercover video of a Google executive admitting the company is working to keep Trump from getting re-elected:

Google Executive Admits Election Meddling to Prevent Trump Winning in 2020
infowars.com/google-executive-admits-el ... g-in-2020/

Image

So, if it's bad for a foreign country to meddle in US elections, is it OK for a multi-national corporation to do the same? The mainstream media seems to think so. If it reports on the story at all it will probably be to demonize O'Keefe yet again for filming people without their knowledge. Look for his abortion videos, the ones where his people pretend to be in the market for organs from aborted babies. They find sellers. Monsters really do exist.

Anyway, the mainstream media lies; Jones questions. And he's been doing it for years. Thanks to him the nation now knows what a False Flag event is. Look at the "Iran shot down a drone" bullshit from a few days ago. The Pentagon and congress DEMANDED that Trump murder Iranians because a freakin' drone was shot down. But thankfully Trump said that killing Iranians wouldn't be a proportional response. Which made the Washington establishment furious. They want war. The mainstream media is now saying that Trump "backed down," but he didn't. The establishment tried to trick him into launching WW3. Jones talked about this on the show today.

Alex Jones and many other radio hosts at GCN can be found at the link below. They range from right to left on the political spectrum. Webster Tarpley is there. Smart guy, but I stopped listening to him when he went all in for Hillary Clinton:

I've seen a few complaints about this thread but unless I'm missing something this sort of discussion is healthy and good for BookTalk.org. I know things can get heated, especially when discussing someone as controversial as Alex Jones, but disagreement and debate are a good thing. If anyone feels that things have gotten out of hand please send me a private message with the offensive quote so I can see it for myself. Simply reporting a thread doesn't show me the specific infraction.

I agree in principle, Chris, but you're not going to see anything like "discussion" or "debate" here. Kindaskolarly has been drinking the Kool-Aid for far too long time. Just look at the sources of his information. We might as well "discuss" why the earth is round to a devoted "flat-earther." How do you respond to those who claim that vaccines cause autism, the moon landing was faked, and the 911 attacks, the Oklahoma bombing and various school shootings were false flag events? There's simply no possibility for a rational exchange of ideas. So the best we can do is ignore the nonsense that is posted her with some regularity. But some of it really is despicable. Alex Jones and his ilk represent the dark side of ignorance and paranoia and anti-rationalism that unfortunately are becoming all too pervasive in our society. We are a country that celebrates freedom of speech and freedom of expression, but how far does that go? I guess if we were to hijack this thread, that would be as good a subject as any to focus on amidst the insane babblings of this particular Infowars groupie.

Is that playing nice? Probably not.

Maybe Kindaskolarly can post one argument or "theory" instead of just regurgitating these mishmashes from very questionable sources. For example, did Alex Jones ever actually allege that the Sandy Hook shootings were faked? He has been sued by the Sandy Hook families for making these allegations and seems to acknowledge now that the Sandy Hook shootings were real. What does that say about the man that he can spout these baseless whacko "theories" and get paid a lot of money for it? Is that okay?

I am hesitant to poke my nose into this particular discussion, being from the other side of the pond and therefore aware that I could easily be accused by KS of being uniformed. ignorant and plainly not wanted on voyage. However, bad faith and deliberately inflammatory opinion are irritating - their purpose is no higher than to provoke. Mark Twain wrote that one should never argue with an idiot because you will be dragged down to their level.

Okay, show me where, in my brief comment, I said that Jones should not be allowed to have his internet perch. You challenge that he never made the claim that Sandy Hook was a fake. If that's true, I admit to a small mistake while maintaining that Jones is far from exculpated. My sole point is that it's despicable to stir this particular conspiracist pot, which is what Jones indisputably did, and to support his crazy crusade, if indeed you do (but you choose not to commit). By the way, "crazy" isn't just a casual usage here. Jones said he must have suffered from "psychosis" when he kept alive for years a theory unbelievable on its face.

I would say to the complainers, address complaints to the poster. Every once in a while I feel it's appropriate to react to KS, just because otherwise there could be an appearance of his most extreme views going unchallenged. But geo is right that such gestures are probably futile. If anyone is hinting at "banning," I think that 's not a good idea, as KS is fine as far as his conduct toward other users here.

That is certainly good enough for me. If you are going to push an "Alex Jones is innocent" theory, you are going to have trouble getting anyone to listen.

He has himself admitted what a liar he was:

Jones violates people's privacy to promote death threats against people who point out what a liar he is. You will never, ever, find the "mainstream media" doing that. I would feel deeply ashamed of myself if I had supported someone who acted like that.

Assuming we take any of this seriously, which I am not interested enough to do, a lie by a critic does not make the criticized person any less (or more) guilty. We know what a scum he is, and how unfortunate his dittoheads are.

I wouldn't believe a thing I saw on an O'Keefe video. His record of distortion is so extreme, and manufacture of false but convincing video is now so accessible, that it is entirely predictable for him to make up video from whole cloth. Credibility lost cannot be regained.

KindaSkolarly wrote:
So, if it's bad for a foreign country to meddle in US elections, is it OK for a multi-national corporation to do the same?
I am not going to look at the video, but the prima facie answer is yes. Foreign countries may not assist candidates and may not try to influence elections. Period. That's why Dear Leader was once again scoffing at the rule of law when he said openly that he would accept such assistance. I would not swear that Democrats wouldn't do the same, but at least they have the intelligence to be ashamed of it and pay lip service to the law.

As for corporations, the kind of divisiveness that Putin promoted, here and in England, would be morally scurrilous and bad business. But not, actually, illegal.

The problem is not that he does sting videos, the problem is that he distorts what he sees. Read the info.

O'Keefe knew very well that they are only recovering costs of providing the tissues, and not selling for the sake of profit or in any way supporting their program. They are limited to that by law. He didn't care. As Boris Johnson said, "The facts don't matter. It's the underlying truth that matters."

KindaSkolarly wrote:

Of course he could have worked that out before he got the estimate of collateral damage. But I was very happy to see him make a sound decision on the basis of proportionality. It offers a lot of hope in many other parts of the world. His trade wars have been, for the most part, proportional as well, although the way he has gone about them was very harmful to the process of trade policy, upon which the peaceful post-war order was built.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) grilled a Google representative about the Silicon Valley giant’s political bias Tuesday during a Senate Commerce Committee hearing.
breitbart.com/tech/2019/06/25/watch-ted ... ical-bias/

Google claims to be a "neutral public forum." This gives it legal protections that newspapers and other media don't enjoy. But Google is now playing an activist role in politics by manipulating search results to suppress conservative content. If they ever WERE a neutral forum, they're not now.

I find it odd that, back when the TV show 60 Minutes was doing undercover video stings, people praised the practice. But now when we get the same thing updated, people scream about having their ignorance violated. Google is openly saying that it wants to hack the 2020 presidential election. The most powerful company in the history of the world plans to select the next US president. I don't see how any American, of any political persuasion, could be okay with that.

So let's see, comments...

Yes, you should be concerned about this thread, Chris. If Big Tech can censor Alex Jones, who's next? Books are dangerous, and a book discussion forum...well that's ESPECIALLY dangerous. So, since booktalk allows Alex Jones' name to be mentioned, Google's algorithms may start directing search traffic away from here. Type in "book discussion forum" in the not-too-distant future and you may get the Clinton Foundation's bookstore as the # 1 result, booktalk # 100.

A chart that some may find interesting:

Almost all of the mainstream media sources shown there are leftist. Fox News & Drudgereport are to the right of center, along with a cluster of people like Rush Limbaugh. The thing is, that cluster is the Fox News team. The graphic is deceptive. You leftists can take comfort in the fact that 90% of the mainstream media is, as always, vomiting forth intentionally divisive hatred.

I've found it increasingly hard to discuss history and current events with people who are still plugged into mainstream news. I may not know much, but I know better than to believe what I'm told by MSM conglomerates. I mean, they SWORE for two and a half years that Trump was ABSOLUTELY a Russian agent. So how can you ever again trust "reporters" who did that?

A sample of stories currently on Infowars.com:

* Hollywood Superstar Claims Victim of Pedophilia, Molested While Working For Disney As Child
* Terrorism! Antifa Carried Out More Than 20 Acid Attacks in Portland, Oregon
* Facebook & Twitter Still Hosting Content For Antifa Group Responsible for Portland Violence

And my favorite story:

When vice-president Joe Biden wasn't perving around groping women and sniffing their hair, he was doing his bit to advance fascism on the world stage. During this period his son burned a BUNCH of crack cocaine and made millions of dollars trading on his father's name. All of that was "crazy conspiracy talk" when Alex Jones reported on it in real time, but now it seems that the truth about the Bidens' lurid past is about to go mainstream. Even NPR is starting to report on Creepy Joe and his boy. The piece below was on their Morning Edition show today. Surprised the hell out of me. NPR (National Public Radio) is the US government's primary propagandizing instrument:

So NPR is now, delinquently, reporting what Alex Jones reported as it happened.

A chart that some may find interesting:

Almost all of the mainstream media sources shown there are leftist. Fox News & Drudgereport are to the right of center, along with a cluster of people like Rush Limbaugh. The thing is, that cluster is the Fox News team. The graphic is deceptive. You leftists can take comfort in the fact that 90% of the mainstream media is, as always, vomiting forth intentionally divisive hatred.

First, let me say that you typically mix in points that might be well-taken, such as some of the stuff about google and perhaps the Biden story, along with points that veer toward the ridiculous.

Your chart is badly outdated. It also is more meaningful to look at independent ratings of media bias or polls in which respondents rate the bias of news sources. Following is one such poll. Note that NPR and PBS get good marks for evenhandedness, which contradicts your absurd charge below about NPR.

I had to laugh at "vomiting forth intentionally divisive hatred," because the words themselves reflect the divisiveness and hatred of much of what you post. But I realize you're taking from the Trumpian playbook: accuse the enemy of whatever they've tried to tag you with.

I have another suggestion: let's not even talk about Limbaugh, Hannity, Jones, Olbermann, Maher, et al, as news sources--they're not.

I mean, they SWORE for two and a half years that Trump was ABSOLUTELY a Russian agent. So how can you ever again trust "reporters" who did that?

Provide quotations that substantiate this charge. Raising the question of whether Trump could be beholden to Russia is not the same thing AND can be reasonably asked on the basis of many actions and statements of Trump's.

So Biden, who has NEVER been accused of sexual assault, is a perv, "Creepy Joe," while the man in the WH, accused upwards of 20 times, is clean as a whistle? What's up with that?

How can this be? The New Yorker, NPR, are trusted sources of information for you? Totally inconsistent.
