Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who earlier this year led the push to have CNN host Piers Morgan deported, is now calling on singer Taylor Swift to stop endorsing Diet Coke.
Jones’ criticism, released on Friday, hinges on the soda containing the sweetener Aspartame, which some studies have linked to different kinds of cancer. The substance, he said, is the result of a 1960s Pentagon study that sought to produce genetically-engineered e-coli bacteria, meaning that soda drinkers were drinking “the feces” of the results.
“So in essence, Taylor Swift is telling us, she loves genetically-modified bacteria poop,” Jones said in response.
Aspartame was approved by the Food & Drug Administration, Jones said, because of the efforts of “globalist hatchet-man” and former U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, and appealed to the singer, saying he hoped her endorsement didn’t constitute a “dirty little secret.”
“Taylor, no amount of money in the world is worth hurting people,” he said. “We understand Donald Rumsfeld and the eugenecists love spiking our food and water supply with deadly chemicals to reduce our fertility and lower population. But you, I know, don’t want to be involved in this, and no amount of money is worth your soul.”

A Maryland school told them to be quiet — but see what these students did
Following the Parkland school massacre, students from Montgomery Country, Maryland were angry, grieving and scared. So what did they do? They quickly formed MoCo Students For Change and mobilized an estimated 6,000 students from over 40 schools in the area to attend a student rally on Capitol Hill that they organized to fight against gun violence.
In Brave New Films’ latest #YouthInAction series, we get a glimpse of what it’s like to organize this event through the perspective of the MoCo students themselves. Watch as they fight for their survival.
Trump’s deportation threat is ‘literally not possible’ — he’s just trying to ‘terrorize families’: MSNBC reporter
MSNBC's Jacob Soboroff condemned President Donald Trump's threat to arrest and deport millions of migrants living in the U.S. as impractical, implausible and immoral.
The reporter has been covering the Trump administration's family separation policy since last year, and he's toured the overcrowded detention facilities where children have died after they were taken from their parents at the border, and Soboroff said the president was only making things worse.
"Donald Trump is a human billboard for illegal migration, the way he's talking about this," Soboroff said. "When he came into the office, and the numbers dipped, they called it the Trump effect and people were scared. People aren't scared of Donald Trump anymore, and they are rushing to the country."
Mitch McConnell busted on CNN as the ‘ringmaster’ leaving the door open for more Russian election interference
On Tuesday, CNN's John Avlon broke down how Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is every bit the obstacle to secure and safe elections as President Donald Trump is.
"There should be things that transcend petty politics, and towards the top of that list is stopping foreign powers from interfering in our elections," said Avlon, playing a clip of former special counsel Robert Mueller warning about the dangers. "Robert Mueller's warning is again, falling on willfully deaf ears. We know that foreign powers continue to try to meddle in our elections. Trump's FBI director and Director of National Intelligence have made this crystal clear."
