Alex Jones was supposed to be Glenn Beck

I missed this show when it was broadcast (Sept. 4/10), but when someone tweeted a link to the video titled "Beck was Developed to Counter Alex Jones" I just couldn't resist poking fun at it.
This gem is jam-packed with dodgy assertions that Glenn Beck was elevated to his then-current status specifically to bring down Alex Jones.


He's Copying Me!

Jones pulls out a copy of Carroll Quigley's Tragedy and Hope and makes a big deal about Glenn Beck using a quote from it in his "factional" book The Overton Window. Why? Because Jones used to recite the very same quote on his show all the time. Coincidence?!

Well, yeah, probably. I mean, it's a famous book, and conspiranoids love quoting from it when they're out to trash the "Damnocrats" or prove some theory about the shadow government.

In The Overton Window, Beck "admits" that the U.S. government stages false flag terror attacks against itself, and that it's planning to launch a false flag nuclear strike as an excuse to declare martial law. The story includes FEMA concentration camps. Most damning of all, the character based on Beck himself is a government agent posing as a patriot.

Jones considers this book a New World Order insider's take on the Master Plan.

Okay, why would Beck so blatantly expose a real top-secret agenda and his own role in it? Dunno. According to Jones, the NWO just likes to throw stuff in our faces for shits and giggles. You know, like movie villains who spend five minutes explaining how and why they're going to kill the good guy.

"I was offered Glenn Beck's job before Glenn Beck existed!"

Really? Beck's first politically-oriented radio show was The Glenn Beck Program, which began airing on Tampa's WFLA in 2000. This was his first respectable gig, the show that launched him into the Conservasphere. Before that, he was just another morning zoo monkey making racist jokes, laughing about a competitor's wife suffering a miscarriage, and continuously getting shitcanned for his dismal ratings.
Was Jones offered the WFLA job before Beck? Jones won't say. He just says he was told by unnamed Bigwigs that he could become the next Rush Limbaugh. He can't reveal the names of any of these Bigwigs, he explains, because he agreed to keep everything confidential and will not violate his agreement. Never mind that it's been at least 11 years since this alleged offer, or that it's unethical for studio heads to make you promise never to tell a living soul they once offered you a job.

I'm going to go out on a limb and call bullshit on this one. If Jones could name even one of the dudes who turned Glenn Beck into the NWO's #1 media shill, I think he would.

Also, Jones never gets around to explaining why the NWO would try to co-opt his mad radio skillz to serve their agenda, then select a paranoid populist "shill" to debunk him, only to have the shill say 90% of the same stuff Jones does. Jones harps on the 10% of their content that differs (bailouts, 9/11, etc.) in an effort to convince us that Beck is a disinfo machine, but it just doesn't ring true. I've said before that Jones and Beck seem to have been separated at birth.

Of course, Jones said all this when Beck was at the top of his game, raking in the highest ratings Fox News has ever seen. Nowadays, he's hawking his Glenn Beck Network, an online-only "tv station" that will never, ever, have as many viewers as Fox News. Hell, a huge percentage of Fox News viewers don't even know how to use computers.
Would the New World Order really let Beck, their carefully-groomed stooge, sink so low?

If They really wanted to debunk Jones's rants about FEMA camps, false-flag terror attacks, and patriot persecution, They would not hire a self-described "rodeo clown" to talk about FEMA camps, false-flag terror attacks, and patriot persecution. They would do what I do, but on a significant scale: Point out the many, many flaws in Jones's "facts", theories, and opinions.

Face it, Mr. Jones: Glenn Beck is you in a suit.

Alex Jones Predicted the Norway Massacre

Late on Saturday night, Jones suddenly realized that Infowars predicted the Norway attacks the day before they happened. He explains it all in these video messages.

It seems even Prison Planet/Infowars commenters are getting bored with everything being a "false flag", so Jones spends some time chewing them out for not knowing their history. False flags have happened, ergo everything that happens is probably false flag.

On Friday, Infowars started out speculating that Middle Eastern terrorists could be responsible for the Norway attacks. Within hours, Kurt Nimmo had concluded the whole thing was really a false flag NWO attack designed to crush the growing populist movement in Norway. Then Infowars decried the mainstream media's scapegoating of Middle Eastern terrorists. Pot, meet kettle.
Throughout all this nonsense, Infowars didn't say anything about Jones predicting the attacks.

Now, Jones insists he saw it coming on Thursday. "How did I know? How could I not, it was like the media was rolling out a new soft drink, it was so in your face."

So did he actually call it, just like he "predicted" 9/11 and the Austin plane crash? Not really. What Jones griped about on Thursday was the use of white terror suspects in DHS terrorism-awareness videos. These are the same hokey PSA videos I discussed back in January. In his opinion, they're a huge part of the NWO effort to brand white populists like himself as The New Threat to Mankind. In my opinion, they're generic PSAs. The reason the vids don't feature Middle Eastern men acting suspiciously is because the DHS didn't want to come off as a bunch of racist fucks.
Besides, what the hell does the DHS campaign have to do with Norway? I know Jones thinks the NWO hands down global edicts from some secret location, but it doesn't. What happens in Norway pretty much affects only Norway. It's a socialist nation with universal healthcare and gay marriage. Obviously, it is not following the exact same script as the U.S.

To be fair, though, governments are growing concerned about homegrown terrorism perpetrated by angry right-wing dudes, and they might take some unwise measures to try to prevent the Breiviks among us from going apeshit. Jones tells us that in order to do this, the governments first have to stage false flag attacks that look like right-wing atrocities.
But, wait, sometimes terrorist acts really are carried out by angry right-wing dudes. Can't the NWO baddies just wait until one of them goes apeshit, then crack down on the anti-government movements?
Well, no. You see, as Jones has explained to us many times, there are no right-wing mass murderers, only right-wing patsies. All crazy gunmen are left-wing.

The Norwegian Massacre Mystery Is Solved

Thank you, Infowars!

As mentioned in the last post ("Let's All Jump to Conclusions"), Kurt Nimmo of Infowars has decided that Anders Breivik is "obviously a patsy for a Gladio operation to destroy political opposition to the bankers." The Powers That Be in Norway were fed up with populist opposition to the New World Order agenda, so they staged a false flag terrorist attack that implicates a right-wing, anti-government terrorist.

Sounds good. But just for fun, let's be contrarian and examine this theory a little.

Evidence for a false-flag attack:

1. Breivik belonged to Norway's Progressive Party, a populist libertarian party that opposes big government and economic bailouts.
As Nimmo himself states, however, Breivik hasn't been a member of the Progressive Party for four years. Wouldn't it make more sense to frame, I dunno, a current member? If you pick a patsy whose membership has lapsed for nearly half a decade, the sensible members of the public will just assume that Breivik no longer subscribes to the PP platform, and conclude that his involvement isn't germane to what happened Friday.

Breivik's major beef, if the video and manifesto attributed to him are authentic, was Muslim immigrants. If you wanted an anti-government/anti-big business patsy, would you pick this guy? No. You'd pick a guy who makes incoherent vids about the evils of banksterism.

Protip: If you're trying to destroy the reputation of a large political movement by making its members look like psychotic mass murderers, you might want to frame more than one guy, and make sure they actually belong to said political movement.

2. Lots of false flag attacks have been staged.
Well, yes. And lots of people have gone on shooting rampages for any number of dipshit reasons.

3. The Norway massacre has been likened to the Oklahoma City bombing, and that was a false flag attack designed to squash the Patriot movement.
Really? Then why did every other douchebag in Washington try to pin it on Middle Eastern terrorists? Did they not get the memo?

4. Breivik may have been a Freemason. Another gunman who targeted children, Thomas Hamilton of Scotland, was a Freemason - and perhaps part of a Freemasonic conspiracy.
The Dunblane conspiracy theories are, to be blunt and crude, fucking retarded. And no, I don't mean retarded in a developmentally disabled way. I mean retarded in the I-have-a-fully-functional-mind-but-I'd-rather-waste-it-thinking-up-idiotic-conspiracy-fairytales way. The Dunblane theory is basically this: The Scottish Powers That Be wanted to outlaw guns, but They knew The People would fight them tooth and nail. So they blackmailed or persuaded a mentally unstable pedophile Freemason to go into a school and shoot as many little children as possible. Voila! Problem solved! No more guns, and only 16 innocent Scottish children had to die.

To buy this theory, you have to ignore the fact that the Tory government didn't outlaw handguns, but restricted legal handguns to single-shot .22s. This was on the recommendation of the Home Affairs Select Committee, which advised that outlawing all handguns would be worthless "panic legislation". It was the Liberal [correction: Labour] government that put a ban on all handguns. If the sinister master plan was to get rid of guns, then the Tories would have done it ASAP. They're good at sinister master plans.

The shooter, Thomas Hamilton, was very peeved that people kept getting in the way of his youth group leadership (he was turfed from the Scouts back in the '70s for inappropriate behaviour, but had set up several "youth clubs" since that time). He was continuously getting complaints from parents, and felt that his favourite activity was about to be taken away from him. He was also unemployed and completely freaking insane.

Theoretically, yes, Masons could blackmail other Masons to do all kinds of wacky stuff. But I don't suppose that's any more common than plain old blackmail.

5. The blasts may have come from beneath the buildings, rather than from a car bomb. Whew! Finally, some meaty physical evidence!
Or maybe not. According to this article by Paul Joseph Watson, the source is the father of an anonymous Norwegian emailer. According to Anon's dad, an explosives expert, the "pattern of damage and debris" reveal the blast came from underground. Until this alleged guy gives us some details, or someone else notices the same thing, I'd say this piece of evidence is thinner than lefse.

And to get all semantic and shit, let's remember that the term "patsy" was originally used to denote scapegoats; innocent or marginally involved people blamed for someone else's actions. Nowadays the word is used promiscuously, slapped on everyone from co-conspirators to masterminds who get busted for their minions' doings. This is bullshit. Real patsies are not involved in the plot, don't know there even is a plot, and probably won't admit to doing anything wrong unless there's some heavy-duty coercive questioning going on.
As Breivik has already reportedly confessed to this crime without implicating even one accomplice, he's likelier to be the guy who did this than a fall guy.

Terrorism in Norway: Let's All Jump to Conclusions


It's way more fun than waiting for real information to come in.

When I heard that someone disguised as a police officer opened fire on a Liberal youth camp on the Norwegian island of Utoya, 3o minutes from Oslo (where a car bomb went off earlier in the day), I doubted Al Qaeda involvement. How does an Arab terrorist convincingly pass himself off as a Scandinavian police officer, and how would Al Qaeda know (or care) about the youth camp? This seemed more likely to be a domestic thing, perpetrated by someone with a beef against the government in general or the ruling Liberal party in particular.

This guy has been arrested on suspicion of being the shooter, and police have stated they believe the bombings and shootings are linked. According to his Facebook profile (which was just yanked), he runs a farming operation, so getting the materials for a car bomb would have been cake. He's a conservative with an interest in political analysis. He lives in Oslo. He enjoys hunting, so perhaps he's a decent marksman.

This looks fairly simple. Dude combines a grudge with a homemade bomb and his hunting rifle. Chaos ensues. Middle Eastern terrorists get blamed until people realize there's no evidence of their involvement. Then we all select a favourite pet peeve and try to tie it in to this deranged jerkoff. He did it because there's no prayer in Norwegian schools! He did it because socialists have no souls! Or whatever.

Infowars has of course taken a quantum jump to the conclusion that this isn't what it seems. It's a false flag operation, like everything else that has ever happened since the dawn of civilization. People never just do bad things on their own steam. Personal responsibility is bunk. There's always someone or something else to blame: psych meds, Jews, arcane military ops.

Already, Infowars has posted a slew of articles dissecting the Norwegian Government Plot Against Norway.

Paul Joseph Watson: "Oslo police were conducting a bombing exercise at a location near the Oslo Opera House just 48 hours before a terrorist blast hit a government building in the Norwegian capital." He implies such exercises are typical of false flag terrorism, serving as "the fallback of a drill."
Really? Norwegian NWO baddies planned this thing for Friday, and they conducted their first major drill on Wednesday?

Watson again: The media is manufacturing a "white Al Qaeda myth", and anonymous callers and e-mailers have already alerted Alex Jones to inconsistencies with the Official Story.
Actually, the media seems to be backing off on the Al Qaeda speculation, as it doesn't really jive with the arrest of a blonde guy named Anders.
Not really knowing why the NWO would go after Norway, Watson throws everything at the wall in the off-chance something may stick. Norway halting payments to Greece, not joining the EU, backing away from action in Libya.

An unattributed article starts to pick apart the "holes" in a story that hasn't even emerged yet, trying to get us to be paranoid as hell. Why would a terrorist attack an empty building on a holiday? Doesn't this point to a false flag op?
Well, there are any number of potential answers to that questions. Maybe the perp(s) aren't quite as murderous as professional terrorists. Maybe he/they were scared of approaching a building full of people with a car bomb. You can't really make sense of terrorism, which is inherently irrational.

Kurt Nimmo wonders if "CIA contact" Mullah Krekar was responsible, and says the attacks will probably be blamed on Al Qaeda. Like I said, the Al Qaeda theory is already melting away in the media.
On Saturday, Infowars re-posed this article from Zero Hedge: "Establishment Media Rushed to Blame Madman Attack on Muslims With No Evidence."
Wait, what? Didn't Nimmo do that just yesterday with Krekar? Also, this article clearly takes the view that Breivik is the real perp and acted alone, which Infowars wouldn't accept under any circumstances. Lone shooters don't exist on Infowars, unless they're Zionist-controlled zombies or raging ecoterrorists. Or Freemasons, as Breivik apparently was.
But it's too late to agree with Nimmo, anyway; he already changed his mind. Today, he declares Breivik is "obviously a patsy for a Gladio operation to destroy political opposition to the bankers". His "evidence" for this is wafer-thin. Basically, Breivik was a member of a libertarian-style political party that opposed bailouts, and was set up as a patsy to demonize all like-minded Norwegians. This doesn't quite explain why he confessed, but there ya go. Kurt Nimmo has solved the whole mystery in about half a dozen paragraphs.

But as Gwynne Dyer has quite sensibly pointed out, it doesn't really matter.
