Alex Jones,
And Rural America

Dateline 21 May 2014

I'll probably end up in a FEMA prison camp some day for publicly admitting this, but I do enjoy listening to Alex Jones' three hour daily radio program. I've known about Alex Jones for several years but haven't listened to his program until recently. The more I listen to it, the more I like Alex Jones.

I typically spend a lot of time every day working in my workshop and mail-order packing room. It's nice to have something to listen to that isn't the usual mainstream media pablum (I'm still on a mainstream media fast), and Alex Jones is the antithesis of mainstream media.

I used to listen to Glenn Beck but finally got fed up with the silly, foolish, pointless banter. You don't get any of that with Alex Jones. He is a serious, thought-provoking guy. Occasionally he's very funny, without meaning to be. On the downside, Alex Jones is prone to hyperbole, he's a know-it-all, and he can get a little kooky. 

But the more I listen to him, the more I like him. I like him because he's not a modern, feminized man. He's got a testosterone-fueled grittiness that's powerfully endearing. I like him because he is a warrior for truth and justice. I like him because a lot of what he values is what I value. I like him because he has moxie. I like him because he is unconventional, and original, and spontaneous, and he comes across as a real person. I like him because he is audacious. His legendary infiltration of the high-security Bohemian Grove gathering back in 2000 is but one example of that (Jones secretly filmed the occultic "Cremation of Care" nighttime ceremony at Bohemian Grove).

Alex Jones is a high-energy, info-warrior against the machinations of powerful global manipulators and the New World Order. He is suspicious of everything the government does. 

I don't have a problem with being suspicious of everything the government does. I know enough history to know that government is prone to grow too powerful and take away personal freedom. It's called tyranny. I think  more people should be suspicious of what our government is doing. That is, after all, what vigilance is all about. And it was Thomas Jefferson who wisely said: "Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty." 

Jones believes that the forces of the New World Order seek to enslave all mankind. I think he's right, though I see industrialism and corporate-government fascism as the enslaving force. In the final analysis, globalism and industrialism are one and the same. The point is, we are all in this global-industrial matrix that seeks to make us dependents. Dependency is antithetical to freedom (read my New York Times Op-Ed).

In his May 16th program Alex Jones talked about the war being waged against rural people. Alex says that American military are training to fight against Americans, and a rural takeover is in the works.

You don't have to believe everything Alex Jones says 100% to enjoy his program. If you have never tuned into Alex Jones, I recommend that you check out This YouTube recording of his May 16th show. You needn't listen to the whole thing. Skip to 41 minutes and listen to 59 minutes (18 minutes in all). Jones talks about cattle ranching and his family's cattle operation in Texas. He ends up with a monologue praising country people, with Hank Williams, Jr. singing "A Country Boy Can Survive" in the background. A couple of quotes from that show…

"It's your duty to raise a garden."

"They don't want you self sufficient."

In another recent show he said…

"The globalists hate Christians. They hate anyone who doesn't worship them."

You can listen to The Alex Jones radio show online at The Infowars Web Site . Podcasts of past shows are archived there too.

I would suggest buying an inexpensive Shortwave Radio to listen to him. There are several radio stations around the country that air his show. Something about listening to him online doesn't sit right with me. Someone that talks about not trusting the government as much as him and then listening to him via traceable means like the internet makes me a bit uncomfortable. But, if you have a radio and you're picking up his feed with that then there is no way that can be traced. I know WWCR out of Nashville airs his show at night. You can find their programming guide on their website ( I think I found it at 4060khz the other night, which doesn't appear to be one of their freqs.

Matt B,

I didn't know the show was on shortwave. Thanks for the information. I do know that (the web site) is currently ranked as number 397 in the US, with a quarter million unique visitors a day. That's more than some mainstream media web sites. Yes, I'm sure the government can trace listeners but I'm not going to be intimidated by that, and I hope others won't be either.

I would say his show has seen a huge jump in listeners in the past 18 months. For years conspiracy theorists have been claiming that the government was spying on us and "normal" people have called them (us) crackpots. With the Snowden/NSA info that has come out there are a lot more people waking up out there.

He is an acquaintance of an acquaintance who describes him as having been well-informed and engaged since he was quite a young man. Having listened to him only a few times I have a theory that there are equal parts hard facts, plausible assertions, and completely nutty fantasies that make up his approach. It's brilliant, really, as he's just enough of an entertainer to keep whomever is listening - them, or us - on their toes and off his trail.

What does give me pause is the USDA attempting to purchase on our behalves what seems to be enough sub-machine guns to outfit a small army. Homegrown tomatoes are regarded as quite subversive, apparently.

As far as staying off their radar, I think that horse has left the barn. Any of us who blog about anything other than lipstick have probably managed to find our way onto the "list".

Thanks for the heads-up on Alex Jones. I have not heard him. I listen to a few "conservative" folks and you are right about the silliness. I despair of mess our country is becoming and I cannot listen to the liars who pontificate hour by hour over the airwaves. I have started listening to more soothing music just to get away from the hypocritical clanging. I'm grateful for bloggers such as yourself. Thanks for speaking truth.

I've listened to him for years. Smart man, a little off the wall sometimes (maybe not), but overall very informative. A lot of what he says sounds too outrageous to be true, but then later turns out to be. Even Drudge Report links to his articles now.

I have watched a you tube video of him in front of the Pyramid in Memphis, TN ( I live and work near there)that was so full of flat out lies it was embarrassing. I have watched other videos of him at liberal protest gatherings intentionally trying to start crap with people in the crowd so his cameraman can get footage to edit down of him looking like he is being bullied. He is a phony and no truth can come from a lie. He is a peddler of fear for personal profit in my book.

I'll be in the FEMA camp with you Mr. Kimball. I too agree with everything you have said. I have been listening to his show for about 6 years now, and all the stuff he said back then and before is all coming true. It's easier for people to dismiss him as crazy than it is for them to address their own denial of being hoodwinked and scammed from cradle to the grave.

100% on the Beck view, with you.

Jones, on the other hand, despite any value or truth in his reportage, suffers from sensationalism bordering on hysteria - IOW, the message is lost.

Just my considered opinion.

Ha! You know, I actually went to the same high school as AJ. He graduated a few years ahead of me. But I watched him on access TV early on and do appreciate that he has matured as a journalist. I believe that infowars somewhat broke the Cliven Bundy story.... He's entertaining and sometimes makes some pretty good points, but I just think his earlier career persona has hurt the present. My dad likes him and I always caution him about sending links to friends from his web site. But I think fundamentally, his heart is in the right place and that he believes in what he's doing. I'd trust him before a politician... Guess I'll see ya in the FEMA camp, Herrick.

Spot on descriptions on AJ and Beck. I've been checking your blog off and on since getting your book and building the plucker. I've always consider your thinking and mine were simular until I saw your AJ post. Now I KNOW they are !
Great stuff.
PS. Patiently waiting for toe tapper updates.
