Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who was into spreading alternative facts way before it was cool, claimed that he was granted White House press credentials in a video he released on Wednesday. But the White House is denying the claim, probably because they’re a bunch of breastmilk-denied, fluoride-poisoned, retarded, low-grade moron, globalists.
While it’s impossible to know whom to believe in this alternative facts tête-à-tête, one thing is clear: if the extremely thin-skinned The Donald knew what The Alex Jones had said about him, he wouldn’t let him near the White House…
When a few Raw Story writers went to cover the Republican National Convention, I was blessed enough to run into Jones on the street. Since I hadn’t expected to meet him and had to maneuver ducking under his entourage, I stalled with some small talk and asked him if he was enjoying himself. He quite deftly pivoted from the personal to the political, saying “I like standing up against tyranny, yeah.” In other words, he was, indeed, enjoying himself.
But that’s not the damning part. During the exchange, Jones told me he was supporting Trump. When I asked him if he had any reservations about the nominee, a candid Jones confided, “I don’t like some of the torture stuff.” He qualified that by saying, “but at least he’s honest about it. With Hillary, she wants to mount America’s head on the wall.” When I asked Jones what that meant “policy-wise,” he responded, “It means she just wants to piss all over the country like a big fat goblin.” Though Jones’ support was unwavering, it’s unlikely The Donald would tolerate any criticism of his pro-torture stance.
Of course many in the media have criticized Trump’s position on torture, which he reaffirmed Wednesday during his first TV interview as President of the United States, telling ABC, “absolutely I feel it works.” But Jones is supposed to be better than the “leftist mainstream media,” which “promote tyranny.”
Below is the transcript of our exchange as well as two versions of our encounter. Much like the truth, run-ins with Jones have two sides.
Katie Halper: Are you enjoying yourself?
Alex Jones: I like standing up against tyranny, yeah.
KH: Where is the biggest threat of tyranny coming from?
AJ: From our globalists that are running our government into the ground.
KH: And between Hillary and Trump?
AJ: Oh, there’s no choice, Trumps [sic] all the way. He’s a patriot.
Shofar-Player: Hillary’s a witch, she’s into witch craft, she’s a jezebel. We all know who she is.
AJ: He’s a patriot. We’re supporting him.
KH: And any reservations about Trump?
AJ: Yeah, I don’t like some of the torture stuff, but at least he’s honest about it. With Hillary, she wants to mount America’s head on the wall.
KH: What does that mean policy wise?
AJ: It means she just wants to piss all over the country like a big fat goblin.
KH: And any other messages for people?
AJ: Well, we’re standing up. The day’s of laying down are over so get ready for a fight. You wanna fight? You better believe you got one.
Fox News host Tucker Carlson and guest blame wildfires ravaging California on ‘woke’ culture
Fox News host Tucker Carlson and YouTube personality Dave Rubin on Tuesday attempted Tuesday to cast blame on the wildfires ravaging California on “woke” culture.
“PG&E strikes me as almost a metaphor for the destruction of the state,” Carlson said in reference to how some (though not all) of the California wildfires may have been caused by PG&E’s technical errors. He claimed that the company “doesn't really know anything about its own infrastructure” even though it “knows everything about the race of its employees.”
Chelsea Handler comes to Joe Biden’s defense during Real Time appearance with Bill Maher
Comedian Chelsey Handler defended former Vice President Joe Biden on Friday, during an appearance on HBO's "Real Time" with Bill Maher.
"I have to know what you think of Joe Biden and that whole thing," Maher said.
"I think Joe Biden is just a grandfather, you know what I mean? And he's old," Handler replied.
"I don't like comparing -- I don't like these stories of these women coming out and talking about a man smelling their hair or kissing the back of their head," she continued.
"I think it diminishes people who have actually experienced bullsh*t," Hander said.
Whether a sitting president can be indicted should be reexamined: former federal prosecutor
Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner has reached a point that he thinks the policy of not indicting a sitting president should be readjusted for modern times.
In a PoliticsNation panel discussion, focused on Rep. Jerry Nadler's (D-NY) suggestion that he would be requesting documents from at least 60 people connected to President Donald Trump as part of broadening the investigation into possible crimes committed while running for office or while president.
"He has got legal exposure on so many fronts," said Kirschner. "Whether it is his fake charitable organization, his continuing criminal enterprise of the Trump Organization, whether it is an inauguration run amok, it looks like, taking illegal, foreign donations and doling out or promising goodness knows what to those people who donated. And it's his presidency."
