NEO – InfoWars: More Than Simply Fake

Alex Jones – One of the biggest puppets in media history. Congratulations Mr. Bronfman.

by Gordon Duff,  VT Sr. Editor   … with New Eastern Outlook, Moscow

Alex Jones took fake news into the stratosphere. “Yellow Journalism” is the only thing it can be compared to

[ Editor’s Note: Gordon takes another opportunity to chew on Alex Jones and his record of media fraud that runs off the charts. This story is not so much that Jones has done what he has, but that all of his media “competition” just sat back and watched it happen without saying a word – except for VT.

We got into Jones’ shorts quickly by using the tried-and-true journalism tool of looking into where his money was coming from. It did not take long… We found the usual suspects with very deep pockets, no big surprise there.

But as the years went by, and he somehow survived one debacle of a story after another, we began to ask, how could such a “fake news” platform survive without traditional media gutting and goring it in public while millions cheered on?

The answer is due again to the usual suspects. Such “interference” is not allowed into their operations. Although we have been on Jones’ butt for years now, the phone never rang once from traditional media wanting to feature us, even to have us take the lead and the heat, while they were just covering the story which Jones had already put out.

Jade Helm turned into a three-ring circus, with the goal of tainting alternative media as a bunch of loons so the public would tune it out

But the calls never came, not even off the record ones, from traditional media. We do get them from the Intel community from time to time, who monitors us closely to keep tabs on what corporate media is not covering and why. We are known for reporting what no one else will.

For example, the military thanked us for going after the Jade Helm crowd who had actually gone so far as to advocate “self defense”, “preemptive strikes on Army personnel during their usual summer maneuvers.

I loved Jones in a way, because he was the perfect satire foil for my “You just can’t make this shit up” (YJCMTSU). Not only did he do it, but Jones gave us the on-steroids version, while obviously having patrons powerful enough to make mass media stand down from discrediting him.

Compare all this silliness to Trump (depending on the day), Tillerson and McMaster declaring that Russia is our biggest threat; and contemplate what a sad state we are in, with people this stupid or cowardly in charge of our security. They are, in effect, running their own version of a “Jade Helm” scam on us, knowing that millions will just lap it up without question.

It is a disgrace that runs off the scales. If anyone thinks I have some bias here, you are correct. I do, and wear it proudly, as does Gordon. And it is why Jim Fetzer got booted out of here like a 70-yard field goal, when he actually thought he was going to use VT’s rep to promote the Jade-Helm hoax, simply because he wanted all the controversy attention.

The “make it up” niche has become a huge industry, one that I fear is going to be with us for some time. Even the big social network “fake news” cleaning efforts are being seen now as tools to censor alternative media by tagging it all as fake news Jim W. Dean ]

These are the whisky vault storage facilities which Alex Jones Jade Helm loons claimed would be used for mass corpse storage.

–  First published  …  May 06,  2017  –

The month was August, the year 2015. In response to an announcement by the US Department of Defense that a military exercise was planned for that summer, one that would have personnel “blending in with the local population,” a strange video was posted.  My expose is all that remains:


It described massive and foreboding warehouses, terrifying black buildings that were “thrown up overnight.” The video described them as warehouses for storing coffins for the hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions to be executed by the US Army in the upcoming “Jade Helm” exercise.

The video was prepared by the InfoWars organization and narrated by Dahboo77, whose audience is larger than any television network.

VT uncovered the Jade Helm scam in about an hour. Here are the whiskey barrels inside the aging warehouses

Based on these warehouses for “the dead” and the closing of five Walmart stores reputed to be built over secret prisons connected with underground tunnels, the governor of the state of Texas, Gregg Abbot, assigned state controlled military forces to follow and control the US Army and prevent the mass killings of millions, as proven by the underground tunnels and “warehouses for the dead.”

These government warehouses, “thrown up overnight” and located “in the backwoods of Kentucky” were no stranger to many Americans. The secret location that pushed Governor Abbot to an armed confrontation with Washington is called Star Hill” in Loretto, Kentucky. Some had already visited these facilities, as described by Infowars as being “thrown up overnight.”

They are the aging warehouses of Makers Mark Whisky, and have been visited by hundreds of thousands of people for over a hundred years as part of the “Bourbon Trail.” The secret prisons and tunnels were never found though Governor Abbot send armed teams looking for them.

The confrontation with Washington became so severe that several regular guests on the Infowars network broadcast directions for making chemical weapons and suggested their use against members of the military stationed in Texas and their families. For those unaware, the US Army is the largest employer in Texas and accounts for 250,000 jobs there, both uniform services and civilian.

In 2016, this same organization, Infowars, fabricated a story about a Washington DC pizza restaurant that kept children enslaved in secret underground prisons. Former National Security Advisor to President Trump, General Michael Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn Jr., spread the story on network media, in fact Michael Flynn Jr., Chief of Staff to General Flynn, still repeats this very odd tale.

Low self-esteem Edgar Welch nuts out on Alex Jones’ Jade Helm. Fortunately he did not kill anyone

On December 8, 2016, Edgar Welch, 28 of North Carolina, in response to Infowars and the Flynn accusations, entered the restaurant while firing a military type assault rifle into the walls and ceiling. Welch was looking for the basement Flynn had said was full of sexually abused children. There was no basement. Flynn, to this day, continues telling the story and we await a new Edgar Welch.

There is a reason we are telling this story, several in fact. According to Donald Trump, everything on Infowars is true and the US government now bases its policies, not all but certainly some, on these stories. And the world thought Governor Abbot was a total idiot and embarrassment, little did we know what was heading our way. Now for context. When we are done, the idea of the US lobbing rockets into Syria based on an internet rumor will be totally understandable.

America’s scandal sheets are filled with photos of Alex Jones of Infowars, describing him as a cult leader, bigot and racist. A year ago, he could have blown himself up on the White House lawn and it would have meant nothing. Things are different now, minor scandals in Jone’s personal life are national news as Donald Trump is known to be a follower, perhaps even a “cult follower” of Jones.

Alex Jones pushed these fake news scams with everything he had

For years Jones has pushed outlandish stories of Russian armies being hidden around America, of fake scandals while totally censoring any criticism of issues involving Israel or the neocon elites who brought American low under Bush and Cheney.

There is nothing new to any of this and all American media is corrupt, no one doubts it nor have they for many years now, but we do have a new wrinkle or two here and some lessons that can be learned as well.

The world now knows Alex Jones. Jones is the host of InfoWars, formerly an anti-government website and podcaster that now has turned out to be a bit of something else. Jones, over the past two weeks, has been in court in Texas over child custody issues. The mainstream news is reporting his “defeat” in hearings involving his private life.

What came out of these hearings is astounding. Jones has openly admitted to being an actor, not an activist at all, but someone hired to lay the role of “Alex Jones,” and according to court documents, paid a massive salary.

The press has turned Jones into a virtual Hollywood celebrity now, feeding off his family’s difficulties. What we now know, however, is that Jones is an actor, perhaps even a great actor, and much is coming into place. Jones isn’t the only one, in fact there are few genuine activists out there.

Fox News, the “activist” broadcaster famous for Glenn Beck, ill-fated O’Reilly and Sean Hannity has always been clear, their “talking heads” have always been actors, paid to have beliefs, which can change in a minute if orders come down from the top.

Nobody ever asks who “the top” is and, until now, nobody has asked why nobody asks.

Sean Hannity fits his acting role perfectly

None have backgrounds of activists. I don’t consider myself an activist but I do understand where they come from and why. I look at my own family. My father was a union organizer, a communist party member during the 1930’s, as was former President Ronald Reagan, while my mother was the daughter of a Kentucky coal miner.

I grew up in politics, served in war, was active at university and in the anti-war movement. Activism is part conscience and awareness, as I see it, and more likely brought on by a dose of bad brain chemistry and poor upbringing as well.

Jones and the Infowars organization is important because it is simply another look at how every movement that can be controlled is controlled. It is irresponsible to assume that every news organization isn’t targeted, that every form of information available to the public isn’t controlled or suppressed in some way. The evidence is and has been overwhelming. The most frightening and certainly most confusing aspect is that some media organizations are both controlled and suppressed.

This is what makes life interesting.

We came on Jones some years ago when looking at SITE Intelligence, a website run by Rita Katz. SITE was responsible for disseminating fake bin Laden tapes and has was the primary source for the fake intelligence that led to the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. Katz is the daughter of a Mossad agent executed in Iraq. SITE regularly briefs both the CIA and American congress. SITE fabricates all of its own material.

Rita Katz – another fake news industry, with the usual suspects behind her

SITE is partnered with the DEBKA Files, a Israel based fake news site that pushes conspiracy theories intended to “confound the enemies of Israel.” Their US counterpart is Stratfor. We were introduced to Stratfor by VT editor and former Director of Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) General Hamid Gul of Pakistan.

General Gul knew Stratfor’s George Freedman very well and told me that Pakistan used Stratfor as “go-between” with Israel’s intelligence agencies. The ISI and Mossad work together closely, as author Jeff Gates learned during one of our visits to Pakistan. Gates was alarmed when, while in the lobby of the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, I introduced him to a Mossad team sitting at the table next to ours.

Gates and I had lunched earlier that day, at the Marriott, with then current ISI Director General Pasha.

According to General Gul, Stratfor was used for “laundering” fake intelligence into the mainstream. In order to aid Stratfor and build their credibility, another Israeli intelligence organization, Wikileaks, “hacked” Stratfor and published a number of their fabricated stories, “re-laundering” them into prominence with the Wikileaks “seal of approval.”

Wikileaks, exposed in 2009 by former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski as an intelligence agency project, regularly “seeds” fabricated materials into their “leaks,” which is usually material they receive directly from Israeli intelligence. No, it wasn’t Russia.

Which leads us to Austin, Texas, Infowars and their local partner, Stratfor. InfoWars is, according to Gul and other sources, simply a finger on the same hand as Wikileaks or the Times of Israel or Fox News and the Murdoch/News Corp empire.

These organizations comprise a portion of the media power of the real neocon elites, not a group of Washington “think tankers” at all but front men for the City of London Rothschild banking organizations and the worldwide “Kosher Nostra” crime groups.

These groups need a media empire to create distractions like Wikileaks or stories about a “Deep State” to keep focus off their efforts to reduce humanity to slavery. But we need to go back to Alex Jones for a bit still.

We had always known Jones was an actor. Jones and radio host and broadcast executive Jeff Rense had known each other for decades. Rense had described their longtime relationship and their breakup. Rense claims it was over issues involving Israel though money is usually at the root of these things.

Trump turned out to be both a puppet and a cartoon character together

However, it is hard to ignore that issues involving Israel are a red line in American media. It was easy to see, as we did in April 2017, that Donald Trump, whipping boy of the American press, suddenly became the “great white hope” when he attacked Syria.

His sins were immediately forgiven, something that can only be done within the Israel lobby with its wide, pervasive and oft denied utter stranglehold on America’s media.

This was quickly followed by Trump’s delve into Russia bashing, also long expected. What developed from this was the long expected bloc lined up against Russia, Iran and Syria with Trump playing “cowboy mad bomber,” offloading shiploads of tanks into Jordan, untold thousands more troops into Syria and sending an armada against Korea.

This left Jones “high and dry” after overselling Trump’s supposed hatred of the Jews and his love of Putin to a bottom-rung American audience hungry for minority bashing and finger pointing. When Trump became the “plug” preventing Washington’s swamp from being drained, new levels of absurdity were reached across the media, not just InfoWars and Fox, excuse after excuse for only weeks into a presidency abandoning all major policy initiatives.

The story above is one small part of a puzzle or mosaic if you will. If the media are all actors, what are the politicians? What are the generals? As we may well have seen in Syria or elsewhere, not even the dead are real, not all of them anyway.

  1. Both VT as well as InfoWars feature speculative material. And it is not so easy for non-insiders to clearly separate their ideas into distinct and clearly separable groups. In fact it seems to me that both parties present speculations that often follow similar lines.
    Gordon is an amazingly prolific writer, and it is next to impossible to keep up with everything he writes, unless you’d make it into a full time job. It is my guess that listening to everything a TV-station like InfoWars puts out is beyond the capacity of any serious writer.
    As I happened to listen to 28 minutes of InfoWars this morning, I am able to report their latest ideas (quoting from memory):
    They say that Trump has not been able to gather a team around him that is able to support him implementing the program he announced during his campaign. Right now his biggest problem is all the neocons he was forced to accept in his team, and especially the tendency towards nepotism, represented by having his daughter and her husband as part of his team. They also claim that McMaster is run by Petraeus, his old boss. I do not have time to double cheek these quotes from memory now, and it is perfectly possible that I read the same things in other places as well. The point is that many of the things seem to hang together quite well. But of course there are differences too. There always are, and you find them especially when you are looking for them.

  2. “What came out of these hearings is astounding. Jones has openly admitted to being an actor, not an activist at all, but someone hired to lay the role of “Alex Jones,” and according to court documents, paid a massive salary”

    Does anyone have a link to the court hearings – would like to verify that Jones admitted being an actor.


  3. Great expose. Again, nowhere else on the web, only on VT. Sometimes I think of Hollywood top actors, the media access they have and means of presenting an idea or an issue to public they have are both immense. Also with background checks they do for certain roles puts them thoroughly sky high on the levels of everyday brain activities of average intelligence operatives and political whores, and they learn willingly or unwillingly how to think like one. Too bad they are usually not bothered or career-scared too much to address important ideas or issues. Or that they have to recycle important ideas and observations and smooth-talk it through another “blockbuster” as the only means of reaching out or communicate.

  4. Why not publish Jones salary and who pays it since it was in a court public record? Sorry this got incorrectly posted on one of Ian’s articles.

  5. We have a bonded whisky warehouse in Elkridge, Md. not far from Ft. Meade. A prime Jade Helm site indeed. So if anyone is planning on liberating a few barrels, ahem, I mean protesting there count me and anyone I can round up from the Point Pleasant Beach bar in. Anything to help the cause, hic.

  6. The side affect of the “Jade Helm” hysteria that I am most disappointed with, is that the military was doing something to inform the public and it was blown up into a hoax causing them to retreat from what was a good trend for the future. To be partnered with the people and not the government is the proper place for the military. Detailing an exercise and keeping us informed and involved is a worthwhile thing. If Jones caused them to turtle with his actions then that is a crime against the people. The strength of the communication between the military and the people, is paramount and anything that causes a separation of that is criminal. As citizens, we would never ask folks to die for illegal wars. Trump still looking for the next Army secretary.

    1. I talk to regular military all the time and it is a great comfort to hear from them that no matter what they will not turn on the American public. The crazy Generals be damned it’s getting hard enough to get them to kill innocent people identified as the Enemy.
