Alex Jones: Elites Intermarry To Preserve Demonic Bloodline

Yesterday, Trump ally and conspiracy theorist extraordinaire Alex Jones hosted Steve Quayle, an End Times radio host, and Gary Heavin, the founder of the Curves fitness chain and a conservative activist, to discuss the Satanic powers running the government.

Quayle explained that God is using Donald Trump to give Americans one last warning that judgment is coming: “Donald Trump, in my opinion, is God’s prosecuting attorney. He’s laying out the evidence. It’s like everything evil is swarming upon him. I think the fascinating thing about this is that I gave a word that I really thought was an answer to prayer, God said, ‘Before I allow America to be destroyed by the Russians and the Chinese, now this is hard to take, I’m going to reveal the sins of America’s leaders to the people and the people’s sins before a Holy God.’”

Later, Heavin explained that the Nephilim still roam the earth today and are actually demons, and that God has been trying to “cleanse the DNA” from humanity by destroying these entities.

“That’s why the elites try to intermarry, it’s to keep that bloodline,” Jones said.

Alex Jones: 'Flies Landing On' Obama Prove He’s Satanic

Alex Jones has once again accused President Obama of having a demonic nature, this time while interviewing End Times talk radio host Steve Quayle on his conspiracy theory program yesterday.

“Why do you think Obama always has flies landing on him?” Jones asked, wondering why “everywhere he goes, there’s just flies all over the place.”

Referring to Michelle Obama’s joke that the president is “snore-y and stinky” in the morning, Quayle explained the real reason the president has poor body odor: “Can I tell you something? Michelle Obama—and you should have your guys look this up—was talking about his odor, now I’ll tell you why. Beelzebub in the New Testament means Lord of the Flies. Lord of the Flies. Beelzebub is another name for who? Satan.”

Later, Quayle went into detail about why Obama’s purported stench is further evidence of his evil nature, with Jones mentioning that Skull and Bones members worship demons in “big pools of feces.”

The Obama “Lord of the Flies administration,” according to Quayle, is bent on honoring Satan and destroying humanity, possibly through vaccines, as Jones mentioned, or chemtrails.

Jones warned that the demonic elite brings out “kooks” to “misrepresent things so they can then distract everybody.”

Alex Jones: Trump On The Verge Of Winning California And New York, According To His Unskewed Polls

Far-right radio host and Donald Trump fan Alex Jones posted a message on YouTube yesterday urging InfoWars viewers to sign up as election observers for Trump’s campaign, alleging that Hillary Clinton is bent on stealing the presidential election.

While polls show Trump trailing in swing states and losing to Clinton by massive margins in states like New York and California, two states that Trump has said in the past that he could win in the general election, Jones said that such polls are simply “fake polls” fabricated by the liberal media. (A poll by the conservative Breitbart and Gravis Marketing also found Trump losing to Clinton).

Jones claimed that “Donald Trump is doing his own internal polling with some of the top, bipartisan pollers in the country.”

Jones explained: “So he’s announcing, ‘Hey, I’ve got my own internal polling showing I’m ahead in Ohio by seven points; showing I’m ahead in Pennsylvania by about 10 points; showing I’m ahead in Florida in some internal polls by 15, and these are real random polls; showing in some polls Trump is three points ahead in California, margin of error, dead heat…. Ladies and gentlemen, internal polls, not by just the Trump campaign but by other major institutions, show Trump on average, seven points ahead in basically California strongholds for the Democrats, New York, that’s why they are crapping their pants.”

Jones, a Trump ally who frequently hosts Trump confidant Roger Stone on his show, has frequently promoted the conspiracy theory, as have Trump and Stone, that the polls showing a Clinton lead are fabricated in order to pave the way for a rigged election.

Trump trails in every single state that Jones mentioned, at least according to publicly available polling, and not the Trump internal polls that Jones claims exist.

“Donald Trump is our general, we are modern Paul Reveres and it’s time to get out there and be involved,” he later added. “I intend to be a poll watcher myself and I intend to be out there doing exit polls, my patriotic duty.”

Breitbart Tries To Run An Unskewed Poll, Still Finds Trump Behind

Back in 2012, Mitt Romney was reportedly “shellshocked” by his loss to President Obama. “I don't think there was one person who saw this coming,” one adviser said.

Public polling largely showed Romney trailing Obama in key swing states, but Romney’s team “believed the public/media polls were skewed - they thought those polls oversampled Democrats and didn't reflect Republican enthusiasm.” Indeed, many other conservative activists similarly predicted a Romney victory based on the “unskewed” versions of polling results.

While the “unskewing” obviously didn’t work, it seems that Republicans haven’t learned their lesson, as now conservative activists and the GOP presidential nominee himself are once again claiming that the polls are skewed in favor of Democrats.

The pro-Trump website Breitbart decided to conduct its own poll with Gravis Marketing, a conservative polling firm, according to editor-in-chief Alex Marlow , because “polls are often manipulated and spun to create momentum for a particular candidate or issue” and Breitbart wants “to give our readers an accurate assessment on where the American people stand on the key topics and people of the day—without the mainstream media filter.”

Unfortunately, the Breitbart poll only confirmed what other polling outlets have reported: Donald Trump is trailing Hillary Clinton.

Democratic nominee Hillary R. Clinton leads in a four-way contest with 42 percent of the vote, compared to Donald J. Trump with 37 percent, Libertarian Gary Johnson with 9 percent, and 3 percent for Green Party nominee Dr. Jill Stein, according to a Breitbart/Gravis national poll conducted Aug. 9 with 2,832 likely voters.

While Doug Kaplan of Gravis offered his best attempt at spinning the results, it seems that even Breitbart’s attempt to run its own poll failed to find Trump in the lead. However, Trump may take relief in knowing that Gravis has been strongly criticized for its record of inaccurate polling.

Trump, who during the primary season couldn’t go a day without boasting about his poll numbers, now attacks the polls as “phony” and insists that the only way he could lose by Pennsylvania, where he trails by a wide margin, would be “if cheating goes on.” (Voter fraud conspiracy theorists have often leveled bogus claims that the practice occurs in Pennsylvania and nationwide.)

Trump also claims that the entire election may be rigged by massive voter fraud and has encouraged supporters to sign up to be election observers to “stop Crooked Hillary from rigging the election!” He similarly claimed that voter fraud helped Democrats win the 2012 election.

His allies have taken up the charge.

Greta Van Susteren of Fox News wondered if her own network’s poll was biased against Trump, doubting that the GOP nominee is trailing Clinton since his rallies are “big.” Van Susteren’s Fox News colleague Sean Hannity said “Democrats use the liberal media to manipulate and discourage conservatives from voting” and expressed confidence that Trump will win because he’s “doing much better on social media.”

Both Hannity and Breitbart cited the same story from the conservative blog Gateway Pundit, which found that “Trump will win in a landslide” because “Trump has nearly double the amount of ‘Likes’ that Clinton has!

Trump confidant Roger Stone charged that the polls are skewed to help Clinton in order to hide the fact that she is planning to steal the election, saying that Trump supporters should prepare for protests and a potential “bloodbath” after the election. Trump ally Alex Jones also declared that unskewed polls and Facebook “Likes” prove that Trump is headed for a landslide victory:

If only Facebook “Likes” counted as votes.

Right Wing Round-Up - 8/11/16

The InfoWars Candidate: How Donald Trump Is Broadcasting Conservative Misinformation

Hardly a week goes by without Donald Trump championing a new conspiracy theory, often qualifying his claims by saying that he is just asking a question or repeating what he heard or read from an unnamed source.

So it wasn’t too surprising to see Trump allege yesterday that the general election may be “rigged” and claim today that “there’s something phony” about polls which show him trailing Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s warning that the election will be stolen and that the polls are deliberately suppressing his level of public support came just days after his confidant Roger Stone and conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones similarly claimed that Clinton plans to rob Trump of the election and that her allies in the media are skewing polls against him so people won’t notice it when the election gets stolen.

The typical path that a bizarre or dubious story takes to get from the cesspool of the far-right fringe media to the mouth of a GOP politician goes something like this: A fringe right-wing outlets like Jones’ InfoWars or WorldNetDaily will report a “fact” that will then get picked up by conservative talk radio hosts, who either use the story in its entirety or refine it a bit. The story then makes its way to Fox News and, from there, to leading GOP politicians and even presidential candidates.

But not for Trump.

Rather than wait for them to percolate up through the right-wing media, Trump takes conspiracy theories straight from the source, often picking up bizarre claims directly from outlets like InfoWarsWorldNetDailyFreedom Outpost, or even email chains and the National Enquirer:

And hes proud of it.

Trump has appeared alongside Alex Jones, hailing the unhinged radio conspiracy theorist’s “amazing” reputation.

He rejoiced at the news that WorldNetDaily — the site whose “reporting” he has cited to in his birther accusations against President Obama — named him its 2015 Man of the Year.

Trump has also made clear that he believes everything he reads in the National Enquirer because if what the grocery store tabloid publishes isn’t true, they can get sued.

He often boasts, while making one or another outrageous claim, that he has the best sources.

We can only wonder what will happen when Trump reads Infowars’ and WorldNetDaily’s coverage of such topics as false flag attacks or Obama’s “real” father.

Alex Jones: Pope Francis Sounds Like 'Satan Himself'

Yesterday, Alex Jones unleashed yet another diatribe against Pope Francis, this time wondering if Francis is the false prophet mentioned in the Book of Revelation.

“I wonder if he’s got a little red tail wrapped up in his shorts,” Jones said. “I mean, if I heard the stuff he says and I didn’t know who said it, I’d say that’s Satan himself.”

The Trump-aligned conspiracy theorist declared that “the Catholic Church is no more” and that Francis is ushering in the End Times.

Donald Trump's New Conspiracy Theory: General Election Might Be 'Rigged'

For days, Donald Trump has been complaining that the Commission on Presidential Debates deliberately scheduled debates to coincide with NFL games in order to help Hillary Clinton. Today in Ohio, Trump said that the general election may already be “rigged,” saying that he “hears” that the election might be stolen, before meandering into a tangent and never finishing his sentence:

Trump has justified his criticism of the debate schedule by citing a letter he received from the NFL, even though the NFL says it never sent a letter to Trump, and by ignoring the fact that the Commission on Presidential Debates is a bipartisan group that came up with the dates back in September. In 2012, the debates also overlapped with NFL games.

The theme that the general election will be rigged has been paraded by Trump confidant Roger Stone, who told conspiracy theorist Alex Jones yesterday that Clinton might “steal this election” using the Supreme Court “now that Scalia has been taken care of,” a reference to conspiracy theories about Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, which Trump has also embraced.

Stone suggested that polls are skewing the results to show Clinton ahead of Trump so no one realizes it when she steals the election.

He said that if the election results don’t reflect the findings of Trump’s “private polls,” the GOP nominee should challenge the election and have his people “march on Washington” and tell Clinton that he will “block your inauguration.”

Stone similarly told Milo Yiannopoulous of Breitbart that if there is an “illegitimate” election, then there will be “widespread civil disobedience” and “it will be a bloodbath.”

“I think we have widespread voter fraud, but the first thing that Trump needs to do is begin talking about it constantly,” Stone said. “He needs to say for example, today would be a perfect example: ‘I am leading in Florida. The polls all show it. If I lose Florida, we will know that there’s voter fraud. If there’s voter fraud, this election will be illegitimate, the election of the winner will be illegitimate, we will have a constitutional crisis, widespread civil disobedience, and the government will no longer be the government.’”

“If you can’t have an honest election, nothing else counts,” he continued. “I think he’s gotta put them on notice that their inauguration will be a rhetorical, and when I mean civil disobedience, not violence, but it will be a bloodbath. The government will be shut down if they attempt to steal this and swear Hillary in. No, we will not stand for it. We will not stand for it.”

“So, I mean the dream here, the ultimate ideal is that he wins by such a significant margin nationally that this is unnecessary,” Yiannopoulos concluded. “But it’s interesting to hear you say this, and it’s funny also, because Trump will go there. He will go to the places other politicians wont, and he’s probably the only person to run for president within the last fifty years who would dare to do this, and might even get away with it. It’s remarkable isn’t it how he’s just sort of re-injected reality into politics”.

5 Conservatives Who've Admitted Trump Won't Actually Build A Border Wall

Donald Trump's acceptance speech last night at the Republican National Convention was high on fear-mongering and low on policy specifics. Not surprisingly, one specific policy he did bring up was his promise to "build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities." (Although, as the Washington Post pointed out, he left out his promise to make Mexico pay for it.)

Trump's promise to build a wall along the entire border with Mexico has been a cornerstone of a campaign that has cast Mexicans and Mexican Americans as frightening outsiders and criminals. It's not a serious policy proposal. Instead, it's rhetorical prop for a campaign that relies on stirring up fear of outsider.

As the Anti-Defamation League has explained, building a wall along the entire border would be "impractical and very likely ineffective":

A wall or a fence along the entire border with Mexico would be impractical and very likely ineffective. The border between the U.S. and Mexico is almost 2,000 miles long. It spans difficult terrain, including deserts and mountains. Rivers flow along two thirds of the border. Much of the area is private property, which the government would have to buy from the owners to build a fence or wall, and many do not want to sell the land. The logistics alone make building a wall very difficult, if not impossible.

A handful of conservatives, recognizing this reality, have recently attempted to give Trump an out by acknowledging that he won't actually build a wall but is instead talking about a "virtual" or metaphorical wall.

Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas, an enthusiastic supporter of Trump, said earlier this month that "it's going to end up having to be a virtual wall," saying that aerial surveillance and "strategically placed walls" in urban areas are a more effective border control strategy than a literal wall along 2,000 miles of border. "You can buy a predator drone for what two miles of wall costs," he said.

Another Republican congressman who's supporting Trump, Rep. Chris Collins of New York, has also claimed that Trump's wall will be "virtual," telling a newspaper, “Maybe we will be building a wall over some aspects of it; I don’t know.”

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has also endorsed Trump, has also claimed that Trump is speaking only metaphorically about a wall, saying, "It’s a wall, but it’s a technological wall, it’s a digital wall … There are some that hear this is going to be 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso, 30-foot high, and listen, I know you can’t do that. ”

Even Dan Stein, the head of the anti-immigrant Federation for American Immigration Reform, has acknowledged that Trump's wall isn't a real thing.

“The wall is a surrogate for getting the border under control,” Stein said last month. “There have been physical structures in place down there since the 1980s. You need physical structures at certain high entry points to channel traffic. Ranchers who are out there in the middle of nowhere, they don’t see why you would need a border wall.”

“The wall is a surrogate for border control operations,” Stein added. “What [Trump’s] saying is he’s gonna get the job done. People who believe he’s actually gonna put a brick on every centimeter of 2,000 miles are in a sense mistaking his intention. The language he’s using is what you use in a political campaign, and if you take Hillary Clinton at her word, then she wants to embrace a limitless immigration platform.”

None other than manic Trump supporter Alex Jones has also admitted that Trump's wall promise is baloney, telling The New Republic, "The border wall is just a metaphor. It’s ridiculous."

These aren't people who object to Trump's fiercely anti-immigrant agenda. But they do acknowledge that his wall proposal would be an ineffective way to achieve even his draconian anti-immigrant goals.

Trump is conning his supporters with tales of his building prowess and vows to build a "big, fat, beautiful wall."

He isn't proposing a border wall as a serious solution to a serious problem. Instead, it's a rhetorical prop in his campaign of demonizing and scapegoating immigrants, and even some of his allies are admitting it.

Alex Jones Diagnoses Hillary Clinton With Psychopathy

It is sad to see Dinesh D’Souza, once considered by many to be a “conservative intellectual,” continue to drift to the far-right fringe. In yet the latest example of this, D'Souza appeared yesterday on Alex Jones’ bizarre conspiracy theory program to discuss his new film on Hillary Clinton.

D’Souza, who claims that Clinton is trying to “steal America,” apparently forgot about the American principle of the right to be represented by an attorney, as he criticized Clinton for representing an alleged rapist in a 1975 trial while she was working as a lawyer in Arkansas.

Referring to an audio recording of Clinton discussing the trial, D’Souza misrepresented Clinton’s remarks and even said he heard “the voice of evil" in the tape.

“And for me, it’s knowing about how psychopaths and sociopaths are,” Jones added. “They have this real self, but everything else is like fake to manipulate. When she goes to California and speaks to Latino groups, she puts on this fake Latino voice. When she goes to Kentucky, she goes, ‘How you doin’ there, boy,’ like she’s, you know, Grandma Clampett getting some possum grits. I mean, it’s like I wouldn’t hang around with anybody that when they got around different groups, talked a different way. I mean, it is bizarre to show that that’s what psychopaths do – and I think she’s a psychopath, I think she’s a full-blown psychopath – is that they do feel this need to just put on these fake acts. It’s very creepy.”

“I think so,” D’Souza added. “And I think she might even have gotten some of this from Bill, because Bill is the master of it.”

D’Souza continued, “People have heard, ‘I did not have sex with that woman,’ but what they actually haven’t heard is you go back and play the old tapes where Bill and Hillary were both confronted with all this stuff and the kind of silky nonsense they put out there, at one point, I think it was Steve Kroft says to the Clintons, ‘Well, you know, I think Americans can kind of accept that you guys, whatever your problems, you’ve worked it out, you’ve made some kind of arrangement, and then Bill jumps in. He goes, ‘Arrangement? We don’t have an arrangement, we love each other. We have a marriage. It’s totally different.’”

Jones interjected: “Yeah, she’s not banging three chicks a day like me too.”

Later, Jones defended Roger Ailes against reports that Megyn Kelly said he had sexually harassed her, claiming that Kelly has “Jezebelian energy” and is secretly “an agent for the Clintons.”

“Well, that’s why Megyn Kelly – I don’t want to get off on a jag – I’ve watched her, I see her on that sinister power trip, it’s that Jezebelian energy, and, you know, Roger Ailes made her who she is,” Jones said. “To see her say, ‘He hugged me once too hard and I want him taken out,’ and I know, because I have the inside baseball, it is from the Clintons, there are talking points, people are being threatened, I’ve talked to the host. And it’s like wow, she really is an agent of the Clintons and all that stuff with Trump and it’s like seeing her join with evil, now, this is a thousand times worse with Hillary, obviously, but it’s just, it’s the creepiness. It’s the dishonor of it. It’s the sliminess that really tells you what we’re dealing with is a bunch of evil people.”

Although Jones said he lacks the energy to control other people, “these evil people” like the Clintons “enjoy… running other people’s lives, knowing what you’re doing, controlling you, ruining you, just because they’re quite frankly jealous of you, and they’re jealous of America, they’re jealous of free market, they’re jealous of open, free societies, compared to everything else, not saying we’re perfect. It’s like what you said in your first film, they want mount our head on the wall.”

 

Asian Americans for Trump Rep: We're The Minority 'You Can Trust'

Monday’s “America First Unity Rally” sponsored by Alex Jones and Roger Stone included representatives from what Rep. Steve King might call subgroups, including Bikers for Trump, Christians for Trump and Asian-Americans for Trump.

Paul Jhin, introduced as a senior adviser for Asian-Americans for Trump, dedicated much of his remarks to Trump campaign talking points about making America great again, putting America first, Benghazi, terrorism and more, before talking about his hopes for Asian American voters. Some excerpts from his rally comments:

Ladies and gentlemen, there are 25 million Asian Americans in this country and we are growing. When Ronald Reagan ran for president, 67 percent of the Asian Americans supported Reagan. Guess what? I’m going to do everything I can so that more than 67 percent of Asian Americans will vote for Donald J. Trump!

Let me tell you something. They talk about minorities. I can tell you one thing: Asian American minority is the one you can trust. And we’re going to vote for Donald J. Trump, OK? God bless America, and God bless Donald J. Trump.

In reality, Trump has been polling miserably among Asian Americans. But the Asian-Americans for Trump Facebook page has plenty of love for him and harsh rhetoric for others:

 

Alex Jones Rally Perfect Accompaniment to RNC's Ugly First Day

Alex Jones, the radio personality who consistently promotes the most reckless, paranoid, and utterly ridiculous conspiracy theories, has embraced and been embraced by Donald Trump. Yesterday, Jones teamed up with Trump adviser and legendary political dirty trickster Roger Stone to host the “America First Unity Rally” in Cleveland’s riverfront Settlers Landing Park on the first day of the Republican National Convention. The rally was a perfect fit for the Republican National Convention’s chaotic and divisive first day.

The big names at the rally were Jones and Stone, who were both greeted as rock stars. While Stone denounced Hillary Clinton, someone in the crowd repeatedly shouted, “She’s a reptile!” – a reference to one of the more, uh, colorful theories Jones has promoted.

Some of the other notable speakers:

  • Kelli Ward, GOP primary challenger to Arizona Senator John McCain, mocked him while people in the crowd shouted “traitor!”
  • Ed Martin, president of Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, who has been embroiled in a power struggle between Ted Cruz-supporting board members and Trump backers Martin and Schlafly.
  • Diamond and Silk, who entertained the audience with a rendition of their “we’re proud black Trump-supporting women” shtick, calling Hillary Clinton a "bitch," denouncing the media, and telling black voters to “get off that Democratic plantation.”
  • Jan Morgan, extreme gun rights advocate, sounded like one with her seeming suggestion that any regulation of firearms violates the 2nd Amendment
  • Milo Yiannopoulos, a Breitbart senior editor whose public persona is a performance of the self-described “dangerous faggot” and whose flamboyant raunchiness makes some conservatives squirm even while they love him for his far-right politics.

Joining them on the podium were Tea Party activists, political candidates and leaders of Bikers for Trump, Christians for Trump and Asian Americans for Trump. We were told that God had anointed Trump and he would bring God back into American life.

In addition to Trump campaign talking points and hard-edged attacks on Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, a number of speakers attacked Republicans. While the event highlighted the participation of veterans, several speakers denounced former prisoner of war McCain, drawing shouts of “traitor” from the crowd. One Tea Party leader said it’s important to get rid of House Speaker Paul Ryan. Another speaker went after Ohio Gov. John Kasich.

These and other attacks on Trump doubters and the Republican establishment were made while the speakers were standing in front of a banner proclaiming “unity.”

We will post more information on some rally speakers in separate posts.

 

 

 

Alex Jones: Donald Trump Is Bringing Our Views Into The Mainstream

Alex Jones, the right-wing conspiracy theorist extraordinaire, held a pro-Donald Trump rally in Cleveland outside of the Republican National Convention today, where he thanked the soon-to-be Republican presidential nominee, a past guess on Jones' bizarre radio program, for bringing his ideas into the mainstream.

“We see the information that we talk about that was seen as radical becoming mainline,” Jones said. “We have to be ready to win. We have to be ready to take the system back and restore the republic.”

Later, Jones invited comedian Eric André onto the stage. André asked Jones to have sex with his wife, talked about his urine and repeated conspiracy theories about the September 11 attacks, which Jones applauded since “I exposed all that.”

“You said something legitimate,” Jones told him.

RNC Preview: Monday’s Alex Jones & Roger Stone “America First” Rally

Kicking off the Republican National Convention week in Cleveland on Monday will be an “America First Unity Rallyorganized by two far-right allies of Donald Trump: conspiracy-theorist radio host Alex Jones and political dirty trickster Roger Stone. They have billed the event as a way to oppose any effort to “steal” the nomination from Trump. Jones has warned of “revolution” if Trump is denied the nomination, though the odds of that happening have essentially vanished since the convention’s rules committee rejected efforts to “unbind” delegates last night.

Sponsors are calling Monday’s event a “massive victory rally celebration of Mr. Trump’s nomination,” declaring, “We need every Trump supporting patriot to converge on Cleveland in YUGE numbers to show our unity and support for Donald J. Trump!”

In addition to Jones and Stone, speakers are scheduled to include Breitbart senior editor Milo Yiannopoulos, the gay enfant terrible of the Right who is a prominent apologist for the racist alt-right movement, and Tea Party activist and radio host Wayne Dupree.

Among sponsors of the event are Jones’ InfoWars, Citizens for Trump and a number of subgroups including Bikers for Trump, Truckers for Trump and Christians for Trump. Eternal Sentry, a white nationalist website that was originally a sponsor of the event was dropped after Media Matters reported on the racist and anti-Semitic material featured on the site. Citizens for Trump describes its supporters as members of “Tea Party, 912, 2nd Amendment coalitions, anti- common core groups, Christian conservative groups, and many more conservative organizations.”

The head of Bikers for Trump told CNN this week that with Ohio’s open-carry gun laws, Cleveland could turn into “the O.K. Corral.”

"We're anticipating a victory dance, but it sounds like there's a lot of agitators and a lot of troublemakers coming to town," Chris Cox of Bikers for Trump said on Tuesday. "What happens remains to be seen, but you can definitely count on the Bikers for Trump standing with the police department in the event they need it."

Jones is no stranger to violent rhetoric, having said earlier this year that Bernie Sanders supporters are “pathetic scum” who “need to have [their] jaws broken.” Last month he called Hillary Clinton a “demon-antichrist” figure.

Trump has embraced Jones and appeared on his radio show even though Jones is in a class by himself when it comes to promoting false and irresponsible conspiracy theories, the latest of which is that liberal philanthropist George Soros engineered the shootings of police officers in Dallas as part of a plot to start a race war that will lead to a “Marxist overthrow of the United States.” Jones is fond of promoting “false flag” theories about everything from the 9/11 attacks to the killing of elementary school students in Connecticut, making him one of the most notorious and truly bizarre conspiracy theorists out there. But he is far from the only one in Trump’s stable. Trump’s own obsession with conspiracy theories is reflected in the number of unhinged characters whose support he has embraced.

Trump told Jones last year that he has an “amazing” reputation. In return Jones called Trump a modern-day George Washington. He and Trump agreed that the country might not survive unless Trump is elected president.

Alex Jones: George Soros Engineered Dallas Attack To Launch A Race War

InfoWars network host Alex Jones claimed today that liberal philanthropist George Soros engineered the murder of several law enforcement officers in Dallas as part of his nefarious plot to divide and destroy the U.S.

Jones, an outspoken ally of Donald Trump, said that Soros is pushing for a “Marxist overthrow of the United States” because “through the destabilization, an even bigger police state will come into control that the social engineers believe they’ll be able to hijack.”

Jones went on to claim that Black Lives Matter activists exaggerate allegations of police brutality in order to justify “a takeover of the policy by the globalists,” who he believes will turn police officers into “oppressors” in a future “reign of terror.”

Left-wing activists, he said, are “starting a race war” to distract people from what he called the real threats to the black community: abortion rights and black-on-black crime.

He then challenged law enforcement to go after the “freakazoid, weirdo, Nazi-collaborator” Soros:

Are you such big wimps, all the state police, all the local police, the FBI, everybody, that you’d let this son of a bitch, this piece of crap, mess with our media, mess with our country and engage in destabilization like this? I’m willing stand up against him! These people are orchestrating something that’s meant to bring the country down, starting with making the revolution about killing police so that it destroys the whole constabulary so the globalists can come in with their control. It’s that simple. This is the attack takedown of America and George Soros shouldn’t be out and walking around. He sure shouldn’t be in this country anymore. They’ve got arrests warrants out for him in Russia and half a dozen other countries. He needs to get his ass out of this country now.

GOP Rep Dave Brat Appears On Alex Jones' Conspiracy Radio Show

Donald Trump and Rand Paul aren’t the only Republican politicians enthralled by far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, as Rep. David Brat, R-Va., appeared on Jones’ Infowars network show yesterday to claim that liberals are allied with radical Islamists.

After Jones falsely claimed that the city of London’s new mayor is imposing Sharia law and that President Obama and liberals have “allied with Islam,” Brat wholeheartedly agreed — “You nailed it” — and said the Founding Fathers never thought that an “intolerant” religion like Islam would be able to integrate into American culture.

Brat added that just as the British need to “go back to restoring their culture” after they voted to leave the European Union, Americans need to reclaim “the Judeo-Christian tradition,” lamenting that “religious toleration is becoming a ‘safe zone’ where you’ve got to sign up before you can go to church, it looks like.”

The Return Of 'Unskew' The Polls! Donald Trump Edition

In the lead-up to the last presidential election, conservative bloggers thought they had discovered a grand conspiracy among pollsters to suppress Mitt Romney’s polling numbers, a claim that Romney’s campaign appeared to have embraced as well, and declared that the polls must be “unskewed” to find the truth.

Of course, the polls, if anything, underestimated President Obama’s lead, and conservatives who urged Romney supportersnot to believe the polls and instead to expect a Romney landslide were, at least briefly, mocked and humiliated.

One such person who promoted the idea that polls were biased against Romney was Donald Trump, who said that polling firms oversampled Democrats to create an anti-Romney narrative:

Naturally, Trump is now saying the same thing about the polls, or “poles,” that are showing him lagging behind Hillary Clinton:

Several Trump backers also believe that the polls, which uniformly show him trailing Clinton, have been skewed against him.

Yesterday, radio host Alex Jones and WorldNetDaily editor Joseph Farah urged Jones’ listeners not to believe the polls showing Trump trailing Clinton, saying that in reality the two are either neck-and-neck or Trump has a double-digit lead.

Jones said that liberals are “attacking” and “stabbing people” in hopes of intimidating Trump supporters from voting because they know “Trump’s going to win with a Reagan-style landslide.” Trump campaign sources, according to Jones, tell him that “Hillary is just trying to act like she’s really winning and have the media say it because they’re looking at stealing the election.”

The bogus polls, he said, will help Clinton get away with the theft. He added that he wears his Trump hat in “communist areas” to inspire people to be more open about their support for the presumptive GOP nominee.

Farah agreed that polls aren’t to be trusted, adding that he knows Trump is ahead based on his analysis of “anecdotal relationships,” warning that “if they steal the election from him it’s all over, America’s over.”

Oliver Willis of Media Matters also found conservative pundits such as Sean Hannity and Jim Hoft alleging that the polls are skewed against Trump, just as they falsely claimed that the polls were skewed against Romney :

On Fox News host Sean Hannity’s official website, a blog post complained the poll “is heavily skewed.” On his June 27 radio show, Hannity cited the partisan breakdown and described it as a “misleading poll” because the media is “in the tank for Hillary.”

Hannity apparently didn’t learn his lesson about attempting to unskew polls in 2012, when he was saying things like, “These polls are so skewed, so phony, that we need to start paying attention to what’s going on so that you won’t be deflated.”

In a post purporting to highlight “More Polling Tricks” from an “EXTREMELY SKEWED” poll, conservative blogger Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit complained this week that “Reuters freighted their poll with 20 percent more Democrats than Republicans” and concluded that “we can safely say that Trump appears to be in much better shape than the poll suggests and could likely be headed to a landslide victory in November.”

Hoft made a similar argument in September of 2012, complaining that a CNN poll showing Obama leading Romney “drastically oversampled Democrats to get this stunning result.” He then went on to cite Dean Chambers, who said that when “unskewed” the CNN poll showed Romney leading by eight percent.

Dick Morris, who guaranteed a Romney landslide and dismissed the 2012 polls as biased “propaganda,” is now advising Trump.

Donald Trump Sounds Like 'Alex Jones Or Joseph Farah'

Donald Trump not only has close ties to far-right activists, he also reflects their rhetorical style and penchant for conspiracy theories.

Yesterday, Joseph Farah of the fringe outlet WorldNetDaily spoke with Alex Jones, whose radio broadcast is a haven for right-wing paranoia, about their shared love of Trump, whom Farah claims is energizing people across the political spectrum thanks to “his outspokenness” and “forthrightness.”

“Look at that speech he gave about Hillary last week,” Farah said. “That was amazing.”

“You could have been listening to Alex Jones or Joseph Farah give that speech!” he added.

Roger Stone And Alex Jones Will Put Ball Gags In Their Mouths For Donald Trump

On Monday, Roger Stone spoke with Alex Jones about the firing of Donald Trump’s campaign manager (and Stone nemesis) Corey Lewandowski along with a rally that Stone and Jones are planning to hold to oppose any effort at the Republican National Convention to “steal” the GOP presidential nomination away from Trump.

“Come hell or high water, I’m coming,” Jones said of the upcoming rally in Cleveland. “Come hell or high water, everybody needs to be there.”

The two claimed that local officials are trying to stoke violence among the various RNC demonstrators, which led Jones to wonder if they should hold a rally before the convention where “we all wear gag balls in our mouth.”

“If they steal the nomination, it will cause a revolution,” Jones said. “They’re that arrogant, though. Obviously, common sense is, he’s won more votes than any Republican in history, he’s the nominee, he’s the populist, he’s got 25 percent of blacks going for him, Republicans can’t even get 10 percent, he’s got the gays all behind him now, he’s reaching out, we’re finding the real Donald Trump that you and I already knew. It’s total victory.”

Jones said that if Trump is somehow defeated at the convention, we will reach the point where he will be forced to give blowjobs to people like George Will: “At what point do I not get on my knees then and bow down and ask George Will to pull it out? Do I bow to George Will and say no to George Will, ‘I’m not getting on my knees and do a you know what’?”

“See you in Cleveland and get your gag ready,” Stone said.

Yesterday, Trump ally and conspiracy theorist extraordinaire Alex Jones hosted Steve Quayle, an End Times radio host, and Gary Heavin, the founder of the Curves fitness chain and a conservative activist, to discuss the Satanic powers running the government. Quayle explained that God is using Donald Trump to give Americans one last warning that judgment is coming: “Donald Trump, in my opinion, is God’s prosecuting attorney. He’s laying out the evidence. It’s like everything evil is swarming upon him. I think the fascinating thing about this is that I gave a word that I... MORE >

Alex Jones has once again accused President Obama of having a demonic nature, this time while interviewing End Times talk radio host Steve Quayle on his conspiracy theory program yesterday. “Why do you think Obama always has flies landing on him?” Jones asked, wondering why “everywhere he goes, there’s just flies all over the place.” Referring to Michelle Obama’s joke that the president is “snore-y and stinky” in the morning, Quayle explained the real reason the president has poor body odor: “Can I tell you something?

Far-right radio host and Donald Trump fan Alex Jones posted a message on YouTube yesterday urging InfoWars viewers to sign up as election observers for Trump’s campaign, alleging that Hillary Clinton is bent on stealing the presidential election. While polls show Trump trailing in swing states and losing to Clinton by massive margins in states like New York and California, two states that Trump has said in the past that he could win in the general election, Jones said that such polls are simply “fake polls” fabricated by the liberal media.

Back in 2012, Mitt Romney was reportedly “shellshocked” by his loss to President Obama. “I don't think there was one person who saw this coming,” one adviser said. Public polling largely showed Romney trailing Obama in key swing states, but Romney’s team “believed the public/media polls were skewed - they thought those polls oversampled Democrats and didn't reflect Republican enthusiasm.” Indeed, many other conservative activists similarly predicted a Romney victory based on the “unskewed” versions of polling results. While the... MORE >

Hardly a week goes by without Donald Trump championing a new conspiracy theory, often qualifying his claims by saying that he is just asking a question or repeating what he heard or read from an unnamed source. So it wasn’t too surprising to see Trump allege yesterday that the general election may be “rigged” and claim today that “there’s something phony” about polls which show him trailing Hillary Clinton. Trump’s warning that the election will be stolen and that the polls are deliberately suppressing his level of public support came just... MORE >

Yesterday, Alex Jones unleashed yet another diatribe against Pope Francis, this time wondering if Francis is the false prophet mentioned in the Book of Revelation. “I wonder if he’s got a little red tail wrapped up in his shorts,” Jones said. “I mean, if I heard the stuff he says and I didn’t know who said it, I’d say that’s Satan himself.” The Trump-aligned conspiracy theorist declared that “the Catholic Church is no more” and that Francis is ushering in the End Times.
