Fringe radio host Alex Jones on Monday reacted to a Las Vegas shooting by blaming it on a globalist conspiracy to take away gun rights and other freedoms from Americans.
At a press conference on Monday, Las Vegas officials said that Jerad and Amanda Miller ambushed two Metro officers, 42-year-old Alyn Beck and 32-year-old Igor Soldo, at a pizza parlor, and then decorated the bodies with a Gadsden flag — often called a “don’t tread on me” flag — and a swastika.
Writings uncovered by Raw Story at Alex Jones’ Infowars website, appeared to have been made by Miller.
On his Monday radio show, Jones immediately called the shooting a “false flag” operation by the U.S. government.
“Tens of millions of people are flooding here, hundreds of thousands a month, pouring over the borders, being given driver licenses in California to pull the lever to ban guns,” Jones warned. “We are in the middle of a globalist revolution against this country right now. And my gut tells me that the cold-blood degenerate evil killing of two police officers and a citizen in Las Vegas yesterday is absolutely staged.”
The conservative radio host said that his “mind exploded with hundreds of data points” proving that the incident was staged when he first read about it on Sunday.
Jones explained that conspirators were using Batman villain The Joker as a “programming template for mind control” because Jerad Miller had dressed as comic book character while he was in Las Vegas.
As evidence, the host began yelling that Aurora shooter James Holmes — who killed 12 people at a Batman movie in 2012 — had been part of a mind-control program called “MK-ULTRA.”
“[Sen. Majority Leader] Harry Reid comes out and says we’re going to do something about this, these are domestic terrorists at the Bundy ranch, everybody needs to be arrested,” Jones continued. “I told you they’ve been building this behind the scenes, now they’re rolling it out.”
“Would they stage this now? The answer is absolutely,” he insisted. “If they would stage al Qaeda attacks, if they would do all of this, would they do this to get our guns and blame the Tea Party that’s sweeping in every runoff election and every primary right now? Defeating, in almost every case, 90 percent of Republican incumbents are going down! 1776 is happening, peacefully, through the system. They want to start a civil war with the police.”
Jones speculated that the government had sent CIA “cutouts” to the Pizza shop to kill the officers.
“They’re getting ready to false flag, and it happens right in Harry Reid’s district, right in his state, right in his city with his police department.”

Dem lawmaker serves notice to Hope Hicks that Trump won’t be able to save her when he grills her during Wednesday’s hearing
On Saturday, Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL) gave MSNBC's Alex Witt a brief rundown of what he wants to learn from former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks at her closed-door testimony next week — and warned that if Hicks tries to use executive privilege as a shield, Democrats will not stand for it.
"Let's talk about Hope Hicks," said Witt. "What do you expect to hear from her that she has not already offered in testimony?"
"Here's what's important about Hope Hicks," said Deutch. "She was a key part of the Trump campaign, which is a large part of the report is focused on. She was a key part of the Trump Administration in the early days, and that's the reason that she's a prominent figure in the Mueller report."
