Alex Jones and Roger Stone blamed “President” Jared Kushner for the Syrian airstrike ordered by his father-in-law, Donald Trump.
The InfoWars founder hosted the political dirty trickster — who’s under investigation for possible ties to Russian intelligence — on his program Friday to discuss the military action.
The conversation followed a conspiratorial trail that led from Syria through the West Wing to the Upper West Side, and all the way to Silicon Valley, and fell apart when Jones blamed Kushner and his wife, Ivanka Trump, for every bad decision made so far by the president.
“It’s them, it’s them — it’s his daughter and son-in-law who are literally enemies of the Republic!” Jones shouted.
At the start of the discussion, Stone suggested the chemical weapons attack, which Trump used to justify the military action, might have been staged as part of a conspiracy to draw the president into war in the Middle East.
“What’s interesting to me is this push by the generals, which I believe is aided by the president’s son-in-law (Kushner), to essentially shed the non-interventionist position that he stuck to very closely in the campaign and become George W. Bush,” Stone said. “The people, if they wanted a neocon, they would have elected Jeb (Bush).”
Jones blamed “President Kushner” for the torrent of media leaks from the White House, which he described as a “jihad” to go after “hardcore conservatives and patriots” like Steve Bannon for opposing the airstrike.
“I can absolutely certify that Steve Bannon was opposed to this intervention in Syria, and he obviously lost an internal argument,” Stone claimed.
He said the White House blamed the chief strategist for the failures of the travel ban and the health care bill, which Stone claims was written by former House Speaker John Boehner and foisted on Bannon by Kushner.
“Bannon’s a fighter, and I do think he will survive, but what we have to figure out is whether his role is diminished,” Stone said. “One obvious problem is that he really hasn’t spent any capital to bring other nationalists who supported Trump into the White House.”
Bannon, in fact, has brought several of his employees at Breitbart News — including an apparent member of a European Nazi group — to work for him at the White House, although none of them is married to the president’s eldest daughter.
“Unfortunately, Steve Bannon has not gone to bat for other nationalists, and therefore he finds himself on the White House staff largely without allies,” Stone said. “My greatest concern, in all honesty, is watching the Silicon Valley barons wine and dine Jared and Ivanka — the Google people, the Facebook people — those who are seeking to choke InfoWars and Stone Cold Truth and Breitbart News and Daily Caller.”
Jones agreed Kushner and his wife appeared to be part of a broad Democratic conspiracy to shut down right-wing sites — which he described as guardians of the republic, and which the FBI is investigating for possible ties to Russian agents.
“If there’s anyone on the planet who would understand this, it’s Steve Bannon,” Stone said. “I don’t think Jared understands that if these censorship initiatives go forward, the chances of the president’s re-election are zero.”
Jones used a series of code words to warn his listeners that Kushner, who is Jewish, was trying to undermine his father-in-law, the president.
“He is surrounded by weak, foppish, left-wing New York socialites,” Jones said, and Stone picked up the thread.
“Meanwhile, we see Jared dining with the head of Google with one of the toniest restaurants in Manhattan,” Stone said. “This is more disturbing to me than anything else because the future of the Trump administration and his efforts to make America great again completely pivot off access to the ‘net and the ability to rally the same people who elected him.”
“I don’t think his motives are bad, I just think his political judgment is not sound,” Stones added.
‘Possible war in the Middle East’: Editor explains why Trump’s visa attack on Iran is ‘lame’ response to oil field bombing
As the United States is searching for ways to draw down on decades-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, serious conflicts might be afoot, one Daily Beast reporter told MSNBC Sunday.
World News editor Christopher Dickey told host Kendis Gibson he doesn't understand the point of barring Iranian diplomats from being able to come to the United Nations General Assembly meeting this fall. During a "Meet the Press" interview Sunday morning, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) said that the U.S. should deny the visas. The statement prompted Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) to call her out for "warmongering," and said she was out of touch with Americans who don't want to get into another costly Middle East war.
Why you should sell your house now — and not wait for the climate to change
Cities across the United States are already seeing the impacts of climate change. Sea levels are on the rise in Miami, Florida, where ocean waters creep into the streets, even when it isn't raining. Massive wildfires have taken out whole neighborhoods in California and in Alaska, about 2.5 million acres have burned since July 3. Wildfires there are getting worse, according to experts.
The problem of climate change has reached a dangerous level for some homeowners in areas that are no longer insurable. In Miami, for example, the "street-level" is now considered the basement and insurers are dropping coverage for basements. According to the Daily Beast, at least 340,000 California homeowners lost their property insurance coverage between 2015 and 2018 because the wildfires are getting worse and companies don't want to pay out when homes are destroyed.
‘Please give me the audacity of a mediocre white man’: Editor unleashes on Justice Brett Kavanaugh
Managing Editor Tiffany Cross, who co-founded The Beat DC, unleashed on the most recent Supreme Court Justice to be outed for sexual misconduct.
Max Stier, a classmate of Justice Brett Kavanaugh came out with another story of the justice forcing his naked penis into the hand of a woman. The FBI was supposed to do a full investigation into Kavanaugh, and Stier gave them the information. Somehow, however, the investigation either wasn't completed, wasn't revealed or was ignored, because none of the information revealed was released.
Cross said that there are some who normally would have said, "man if only we knew about these allegations during the confirmation hearing." The problem, of course, is that it was known, Cross explained. It was simply ignored by Republicans in the majority. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) is an excellent example of a pro-choice, pro-woman senator who claimed she trusted Kavanaugh. She's suffered the consequences from her home-state in wake of the vote. In the past four years, she has dropped from being the most favored senator in the country to among the least.
