Alex Jones



Alexander Emerick Jones (born February 11, 1974) is an American radio host, and filmmaker. He is best known for questioning the standard accounts of the September 11th terrorist attacks, his filming of the opening ceremony of an annual gathering at the Bohemian Grove, and his regular bulletins on the "New World Order".

Alex Jones believes that certain elements of the United States Government are intent on weakening the United States and its sovereignty. These elements, he believes, are "paid off" in an effort to shift the balance of power toward the European continent, which is in turn under the control of the World Bank, beyond the scope of nation states. Jones refers to the World Bank and their "minions" as Globalists or the Illuminati.

Jones views this group to be so powerful that they have in practice become untouchable by Nation-state laws, in some cases even by international law. Jones often quotes the English historian John Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton, who claimed "Absolute power corrupts absolutely", and argues that the Globalists have become corrupted and arrogant in their quest for additional power. He claims that the Globalists are using a variant of Hegelian Dialectic (which he refers to as problem-reaction-solution) to instill fear in the public in order to erode civil rights and to advance any agenda they might have, even at the cost of innocent lives.

Jones frequently cites the declassified Operation Northwoods document as a telling example of the federal government's willingness to implement such a strategy. He views the September 11, 2001 World Trade Center attacks as the most spectacular example in a long world history of problem-reaction-solution events created by "small criminal elements" in the government, and credits himself as having predicted the September 11 attacks in July of 2001 on his public access TV program before they occurred.

Jones claims the mainstream media have been manipulated to such a degree that they are no longer doing their job of being the government watchdogs and instead have become a Propaganda Bureau of the corrupt establishment. Jones has openly stated that he has dedicated his radio work, his websites and his documentaries, to exposing "the truth" surrounding what he deems as state-sponsored terrorism, police state incrementalism in the U.S., and threats to the U.S. and world population, the United States Constitution, and U.S. sovereignty.

His research and discovery methods are accomplished mainly by interviewing who he believes and determines are whistleblowers, scientific and historical experts, scholars, political and religious leaders, victims of events, government officials, and the public for his documentaries, publications, and call-in talk-radio show. He also reads and analyzes mainstream news feeds, government documents, think-tank papers, and other publications, and reports his findings through his media outlets. Jones has frequently referred to media articles and reports, publications, websites, and declassified government documents as evidence to support his claims, calling them "their own documents". He states these articles are frequently brushed aside and ignored by the media and subsequently the majority of the population.

Jones views himself first and foremost as a "freedom-loving American patriot" and has referred to communism, as Jones believes is being practiced in China, as "an excuse for slavery". Jones claims he avoids talking in terms of "liberal vs. conservative" or "Democrat vs. Republican"; he views these both as being different spectra of the same threat or as being "two sides of the same coin", as he put it during his monologue in Waking Life. However, he does sometimes refer to "saving the republic" of America. He holds the United States' founding fathers in high regard and frequently talks about saving the values that are expressed in the Constitution, which he believes is under threat from laws such as the USA Patriot Act and agreements such as the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.

He states that he was "pretty secular" during the early 1990s, but has became stronger in his Christian beliefs after having become aware of the what he believes is the "satanic and occult nature of the elite". He refers to Skull and Bones and Bohemian Club as examples of this "satanic and occult" elite. Jones argues that it is not important if one believes in the occult or not, the important thing is that "they" believe in it. He further argues that it is all a "gang signs" mentality, and that "they" are spreading their "signs" everywhere.

He claims that he has received multiple death-threats due to him advocating his views, one time being beaten down by four persons. He states that he had received a death-threat as late as August 16, 2006, and that he has made himself prepared for being killed, something he believes is likely to happen if he succeeds in receiving much more attention. He has further said that he has "life insurance."

Originally from Rockwall, Texas (a suburb of Dallas), Jones began his career in Austin with a live call-in format cable access television program. In 1996, Jones switched format to KJFK, hosting a show named The Final Edition. In 1997, he released his first documentary film, America Destroyed By Design. In 1999, he won that year's "Best of Austin" poll as radio host, voted by Austin Chronicle readers. Later that year, he was fired from KJFK-FM. According to the station's operations manager Jones was fired because his viewpoints made the show hard to sell to advertisers and he refused to broaden his topics. Jones argued:"It was purely political, and it came down from on high," and, "I was told 11 weeks ago to lay off Clinton, to lay off all these politicians, to not talk about rebuilding the church, to stop bashing the Marines, A to Z." Alex started working for Republic Radio with John Stadtmiller and his shows were broadcasted on shortwave as far back as 1997 as "The Alex Jones Show". "Republic" was bought and became GCN and Stadtmiller later split to form Republic Broadcasting in spring of 2004. Jones is still on WWCR Nashville shortwave and www.GCNlive.com as of late 2006. As well as his Austin access TV show. Jones later started a new show InfoWars which is broadcast via Internet radio through the Genesis Communications Network and on public access television in Austin.

In 2000, Jones and an assistant infiltrated the annual gathering of the Bohemian Club. In June 2001, Jones launched Prisonplanet.com. On July 25, 2001, Jones predicted that an imminent and large attack was going to be directed against the United States. Jones also predicted that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) might blame the attack on their asset Osama Bin Laden. He urged listeners on his radio show, and viewers on his cable access television program to call the White House switchboard.

He said:
I want the White House numbers up there now. After you research all the government terrorism, and check out what I'm saying is true, call the White House and tell them 'we know the government is planning terrorism, we know Oklahoma City and the World Trade Center were terrorism, we know the Joint Chiefs of Staff want to blow up airliners, Baltimore Sun. If you do it, we're going to blame you cause we know whose up to it, or if you let some terrorist group do it like the World Trade Center, we know who to blame,' and you could save the planet. I'm calling it "Operation Expose The Government Terrorists".

In July 1, 2002, Jones started the Save The Bill of Rights Campaign to repeal the Patriot Act. Further in 2002, Jones released 9-11: The Road to Tyranny. In 2005, he released another film, Martial Law: 9/11 Rise of the Police State. On February 19, 2006, Jones made a short presentation where he argued a coverup in the Dick Cheney hunting incident. He named it "Scientific proof Cheney's shooting story a lie."

On March 20, 2006, he had Charlie Sheen as a guest on his talk show. The interview received mainstream media coverage and commentary by CNN Showbiz Tonight, Fox News' Hannity & Colmes and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Al-Jazeera stated that it "provoked a media storm."

On June 8, 2006, Jones was stopped and detained at the Canadian border while on his way to cover a meeting of the Bilderberg group in Ottawa. On June 24-25, 2006, Jones organized the "9/11 + The Neo-Con Agenda Symposium" in Los Angeles, California. Charlie Sheen addressed the audience and introduced Jones.

On August 10, 2006, Alex Jones predicted "a massive staged false flag terror attack, blamed on Hezbollah or Al-Qaeda, that will light the blue touch paper for World War Three...before the end of October unless a gargantuan effort to prevent it is launched." On August 16, 2006, Fox News reported on his warning and mentioned his pre-9/11 warning. Jones commended the attention and proclaimed that the new awareness this causes might hopefully have the effect of the staged attacks not taking place.

Jones has produced a series of videos about what he believes is the emergence of a totalitarian world government, the erosion the United States national sovereignty and its civil liberties, the misuse of government power, corporate deception, and cohesion between disparate power structures. He allows his movies to be to freely distributed on VHS and DVD, as well as via the Internet.
