Alex Jones and the ‘Joker’ Meme

By
Monday, August 10, 2009 at 10:22 am

The fringe radio host made good on his promise to broadcast in “Joker” pancake make-up, then hit the streets to put up “Obama=Joker” posters. Jones is pushing his own version of the poster, pointing to “InfoWars.com” instead of labeling President Obama a “socialist,” because “socialism is bad, but it’s not as bad as fascism!”

“Let’s let Obama and his foreign bank handlers know that we’re aware of their criminal activities,” says Jones, taking a meme that began on the Drudge Report and taking it way into the political badlands.

So, Obama's the “socialist,” but Jones is railing against banks' influence in his adminstration. Wtf?

Alex had some interesting analysis of the Bush administration a few years ago.

I think he has been at odds with the establishment for so long he has lost touch with reality.

I really used to like Alex. This is sad, its like watching an old friend lose their mind.

Jones is in character here. Most of the time he is dead serious, probably too serious, all the time. Hardly fair to call him “fringe.” All he does is give you document after document after document to go look up yourself and decide whether or not bankers and globalists are really trying to take over the world.

Despite looking like a lunatic, saying the sky is falling, after you read the documents, you usually end up thinking he might be understating this all a bit.

Anyone who thinks that the banks, the CFR, the bilderberger group, and God knows who else are involved in some massive conspiracy not limited to committing 9-11(and blaming it on Al Queda) and other terrorist acts in the world is a few fries short a happy meal. I remember seeing one video with Jones where he's staying in a hotel near some Bilderberger group meeting and he was trying to tell the audience that the conspiracy's master plan to undermine him was to pull the fire alarms so that the hotel could kick him out. He's a delusional wacko.

I guess now that the kooks have made Obama “white” he is more acceptable to them? I'm detecting a theme here.

Sometimes, though, one man's conspiracy theory is another's bold policy initiative. I never thought my government would decide that importing cocaine into the US to trade for weapons to send to Iran was a good idea but it was the main theme of the Reagan Bush years.

The Govt was never accused of importing cocaine, just turning a blind eye to the Contras doing it, but the CIA IG couldn't find any proof of it. The IG only found that the CIA didn't cut off contact fast enough with Contras accused of drug links.

Bill Casey's 1982 letter, read into the Congressional Record in 1998 by Maxine Waters, indicates that the CIA was indeed shielded ahead of time from the legal requirement to report drug smuggling by their assets under the rubric of protection of intelligence sources and methods. What better way, from a Republican perspective, than to fund the death squads of Nicaragua by helping them help themselves, providing “free” money to skirt the Bolland Amendment?
They didn't actually deliver the cocaine, but they did everything up to that to make it possible, including providing aircraft, weapons, boats, money, and legal cover.

Unless you can prove that they had explicit knowledge of delivering the cocaine to the USA, you can't prove your accusation. There's massive gaps between “directly importing cocaine into the US,” “providing the tools to drug dealers to smuggle cocaine into the US with or without the knowledge of the CIA” and “they didn't report rumored drug ties about their associates.”

And there's a dozen ways to get funding without much congressional knowledge(or any). I doubt that Dewey Clarridge and the CIA agents involved would be committing hundreds of felonies just to get a few extra million dollars for the contras. Especially since the Ollie North end of the scandal was about getting more funding for the program via Israel without smuggling narcotics into the US using CIA front companies.

Obama works for bankers and industrialists. He gets his policy from the same people that hand delivered it to Bush – corporate sponsored think tank groups like the CFR, Brookings Institute, and the Rand Corporation just to name a few – these think tanks also furbishing every administration with their own advisers – go check that out yourself. It has nothing to do with Obama being half black. The racial issue is another excuse to divide and distract people from the truth – that the US President does not work for the American people. He is a proxy between the globalist elite and the people.

When it was Bush, they questioned your patriotism and desire to fight the “evil terrorists.” Now you are a racists if you don't capitulate. Grow up already. The people Obama represents are the same ones shipping in cocaine, destroying education, denouncing the family and literally destroying America including the black communities. “Kooks” are the ones fighting to expose and stop this, not your bleeding heart liberal scum who thinks just voting for a half-black President is reparation enough, not right wingers that think blacks belong back in the field.

Painting Obama up as the Joker is meant to shatter the dignity and respect his PR machine is working so hard to build up. He is a crook, just like Bush, Clinton, Bush Sr. etc. Jones in particular was just as vocal a critic of Bush and Clinton as he is now of Obama. People need to seriously grow up, stop playing these games, go to the CFR website, the Club of Rome website and read the documents, read the bills they are pushing on us.

You don't think that its weird that the most powerful people on earth can meet every year and there is a total media black out? The “Bilderberg” meeting was, for the first time, covered in the mainstream media this year ONLY because Alex Jones has been working hard to expose it for years, and now his listeners, numbering in the millions are everywhere calling these people on it. They had no choice but to admit they have been meeting in secret.

The banks also, have been openly running things for the last 100 years. Its not a conspiracy! Go open a history book. Go to the Federal Reserve website! They say they are a private bank running US monetary policy. People like USMC General Smedley Butler exposed bankers and industrialists before WW2, as racketeers starting wars and manipulating the people for profit.

They are on record lying about 9/11. At the very least, they lied about not having foreknowledge of the attacks coming, they also lied about being unable to conceive planes being used as guided missiles.They had drills preparing for terrorists hijacking planes and crashing them into buildings including the WTC and the Pentagon!

USA Today – buddy! You know who is a few fries short? Someone too afraid to look this stuff up and admit the implications of this information because they don't have the courage to face reality and the fact that they have to stop living their blissfully ignorant life in order to stand up and do something about this. From the beginning of time men have tried to seize power and dominate the planet, there are always Napoleons, Hitlers, and Stalins lurking in the shadows. Pretending they don't exist doesn't work.

Chad, do you work for the CIA? LOL! I remember even as a kid during the Clinton administration, the Director of the CIA admitting to the government's role in continuously shipping in cocaine and crowds of city folks screaming at him!

Here's the DEA saying it happened.

I guess for you though, even a signed confession can be brushed off with a healthy dose of cognitive dissonance. Watch more CSPAN, less Fox!

Of course they are crazy right Chad? You have no facts to back that up, you can't explain why USA Today said NORAD was conducting drills prior to 9/11 involving hijacked planes being crashed into both the WTC and the Pentagon and yet the White House saying they had absolutely no idea something like 9/11 was conceivable. And of course, these people never lie right?

http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2004-04…

You have no explanation as to why the government would have gone through the trouble to make such an elaborate plane as “Operation Northwoods” if false flag terrorism wasn't a tool they considered a viable option. You can't explain why the US turned a blind eye to the “Levon Affair” during which Israeli operatives attacked US targets in Egypt, attempted to blame Arabs but were CAUGHT! The only justice served was at the hands of the Arabic Muslims – and when the surviving Israeli operatives got back to Israel, they got medals!!!

Taking over General Motors was a socialist act. Bailing out the banks with taxpayer debt was a fascist act. They are not mutually exclusive. The point should be that both acts are unconstitutional and should not have occured. Obama is a “Constitutional lawyer” like Jack Kevorkian is a “doctor”. They are both willing to assist in the death of the American people.

“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence, it is force;
like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master.
Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.”

It's about time. What Alex Jones is doing is brilliant and brave, so I am putting some fliers up as well. To get people talking, to help some wake up and expose the frauds.

So, Obama's a socialist and Bush is a fascist? Bush did do TARP, not Obama.

And there's nowhere in the Constitution that prevents either policy.

What planet are you on. It is so bad now that these people are on the news openly admitting what they are doing. AND if you called ME a “delusional wacko,” I would slap your uninformed butt with an expensive lawsuit.

Obama is a front man for a cartel of fascists, monopoly men, and determined eugenicists. This is not about black or white, left or right, it is about OUR FREEDOMS!

Obama and Bush are just different tools in the globalist social fascist toolbox! People need to wake up. In WW2 when Communist USSR was against Hitler's Nazis, it wasn't as simple as two opposing different systems against each other. Nazism and Communism are both fascist tyrannies (state and corporate powers merge in both cases). Communism is a rather forceful version of socialism. Socialism is the idea that all political/economic systems will evolve into socialism, while Communism is a more police state forced/directed version of Socialism. Now stay with me… Nazi came from an acronym for the National Socialist Workers' Party. Do you see the word Socialist there? There is a widely circulated myth that the Nazis were right wingers. Just as the KKK and other racist organizations have been attached to right wing politics. The truth and facts are that the Nazis, the KKK, and other racist organizations are by a wide predominance left wing oriented. Even today. The left is SO racist, they knowingly spread the lie or stupidly believe the lie that a joker faced Obama is a racist image. That image was originally created and circulated by an American of African decent and continued to be used to refer to Obama as a joke, a clown, and as doing crazy things to this country….it has NOTHING to do with race. The true racists are those that instinctively think that such an image is racist without any information other than seeing the image. That is exactly what racism is, making a determination about the color of ones skin and nothing else!

Please people, wake up. Obama is bad news, both Bush jokers (yes, Bush #2 was depicted as a joker too), Clinton, Reagan, and most recent presidents prior have been guilty of subverting the US Constitution and furthering the global agendas that are destroying our economy and our society. We do not need to be an empire, we do not need to be the global police force and cannon fodder, we should be seeking to protect our Constitutional Republic and trade with and get along with everyone. Government needs to be kept in check and it is not a good government that seeks to micro-manage, tax and control everything in our lives.
