Conspiracy-theory-loving broadcaster Alex Jones warned on his radio program yesterday of the prospect of President Obama, Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine leading the U.S. into a devastating nuclear war with Russia.
“I’m not the devil,” Jones said. “I’m the opposite of that. And these people that say they’re your leaders, they want to kill you and your family and in your gut you know it. Vote Donald Trump if you want to live. It’s that simple. Death is what the globalists have to offer, period.”
Later, Jones claimed that Democratic leaders and George Soros are deliberately instigating a nuclear holocaust: “Why do you want an earth that’s ruined? Because you people are satanic. You’ve been given power because you’ve been possessed, you’ve been turned over to evil. Let me tell you something, George Soros and Hillary Clinton, you just look at them, those aren’t people. You look at Kaine, he’s not a person either.”
For days, Donald Trump’s supporters in conservative media were gearing up for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s press conference today that they believed would doom Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
No one was more excited than Alex Jones, an outspoken supporter of Trump who has hosted the GOP candidate on his show, and Roger Stone, an informal adviser to Trump and frequent Jones guest.
On Sunday, Jones reported that “Roger is saying that this is ‘the end of Hillary on Wednesday’ and I agree.”
Stone told Jones’ InfoWars network that “the motherlode is coming Wednesday…it’s handcuff time.” The next day, Stone expressed confidence that Assange would "deliver the payload” that would bring down Clinton, tweeting:
Trump ally Wayne Allyn Root similarly assured his fans that Assange was set to release “devastating info on Hillary. That’s assuming Obama & Hillary don’t murder him w/drone strike overnight.” He also said that he was staying up to watch Assange’s announcement—“it’s like staying up for Christmas!”—and wondered if Clinton would need to receive an “adrenaline shot” when she got the news of Assange’s big announcement.
Just before Assange started his remarks, Jones waited with bated breath.
“We better hear some major dirt,” he said. “I’ve been told by Stone and others that have been in contact with him that we’re about to get ‘devastation of the Clintons.’ We’re up at 4 a.m. Central.”
But his confidence that Assange would release a “devastating coup de grace” and “deathblow” to Clinton quickly subsided when it became apparent that Assange was only announcing that he would release new information in the future, although not necessarily connected to Clinton.
Jones, who switched between screaming, singing and rapping during his commentary, was not pleased with Assange’s address, warning him that Clinton is trying to murder him and even tying his newfound contempt for the “Wiki-turds” founder back to his conspiracy theory that Michelle Obama is transgender: “Of the two trannies, she has definitely got the bigger gun.”
He added: “Julian Assange is a Hillary butt plug, Assange is a Hillary butt probe.”
Eventually, Jones channeled Ludacris:
You better release it all within 12 hours or you’re done. We’ve been Wiki-rolled. Who bought them TVs, bitch, tell me that? Move, bitch, get out the way. Get out the way, bitch, get out the way. Move, bitch, get out the way, I mean, you get out the way man. You think you bitched us? You think you rolled us? You ain’t seen nothing yet, Assange. I’m rolling Hillary. I’m the dark heart. We ain’t backing down. Just because you’re a fake chump don’t mean we are. Get ready!
“We’re not losers because we got trolled by Julian Assange,” Jones said, calling Assange’s press conference “hammered shit” and “Hillary’s ‘October Surprise.’”
“You released nothing,” he continued. “You trolled the world…. I am embarrassed, I feel chumped, I feel trolled.”
Naturally, Jones suspected that Assange has now joined forces with the evil globalists.
“I think they’ve gotten to Assange and promised him some type of immunity deal if he rolls over, I think that deal’s been made.”
Today, Matt Drudge posted on the Drudge Report a January 12 interview between conspiracy theorist extraordinaire Alex Jones and informal Donald Trump adviser Roger Stone in which they claim that Bill Clinton has an illegitimate child named Danney Williams.
Back in 1999, the Drudge Report breathlessly hyped the “DNA showdown” over Williams’ parentage …only to then declare that the story was “a cruel hoax by the boy's mother” and that the tale had been “debunked and flunked by science.”
The turn in the story came when the supermarket tabloid Star Magazine conducted a DNA test and discovered that Williams was not, in fact, Clinton’s son.
“There was no match, nothing even close,” Star editor Phil Bunton said.
But the fact that he once called the story a discredited “hoax” hasn’t stopped Drudge from promoting the claim 17 years later:
Indeed, Drudge has been at the center of countless right-wing conspiracy theories, which often end up on the lips of Donald Trump.
On Monday afternoon, conservative talk radio host Michael Savage learned that his program was not running as usual on a major New York radio station that day, prompting him to claim that he was being thrown off the air because of his outspoken support for Donald Trump.
An incensed Savage alleged that he had been “sabotaged” to “destroy support for Trump”:
I'VE BEEN SABOTAGED ON AIR. TO DESTROY SUPPORT FOR TRUMP. MORE LATER
What actually happened, as Snopes notes today, is that the New York-based radio station WABC “opted to preempt his show—apparently without notifying Savage in advance—in favor of 'wall to wall' coverage of that day's first presidential debate.”
“Adding to the confusion was the fact that some kind of technical glitch resulted in a portion of the third hour of Savage's program being replaced by a repeat of a previous show on the day in question,” the myth-busting group adds.
Savage, however, declared on his program on Monday that this was just “a taste of what’s coming” if Hillary Clinton becomes president.
“I told you that if Hillary wins, there will be censorship of talk radio and other aspects of the media,” he said. “Everyone knows that. We know that she’s a monster. She does not believe in freedom of speech. She has an enemy’s list—I’m on it. The people behind her are some of the worst people in American history—maybe human history—who will not stop at anything to destroy their enemies.”
Savage’s fellow conspiracy theorist and Donald Trump fan Alex Jones, meanwhile, claimed that Matt Drudge’s prediction of imminent censorship of conservatives was coming true.
“This is 21st century book burning that’s taking place,” Jones said.
Yesterday, longtime Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone spoke with conspiracy theory broadcaster Alex Jones about potential “October surprise” events that the “globalists” might concoct to prevent a Trump victory in the presidential election.
“I fear for Trump’s physical safety,” Stone said, which caused Jones to ask about the prospect of “a fake attempted assassination on Hitlery.”
Stone, an informal adviser to Trump, warned that since “the globalists” have “killed John Kennedy” and “infiltrated the Watergate burglar teams to botch the mission and bring Nixon down,” they “will do anything” to achieve their goals.
Jones’ co-host, Lee Ann McAdoo, had an even bleaker outlook, wondering if the New World Order would start a nuclear war: “They’re already planning World War III behind the scenes. This might be the October surprise, that we’re all going to get nuked before anyone gets into office.”

Stone, for his part, brought up the unsubstantiated claim that Bill Clinton traded “missile technology secrets to the Chinese in return for Chinese funny money, Chinese campaign contributions that were laundered.”
“That’s treason,” he said. “The statutes for treason have no statute of limitations and the penalty for conviction for treason is execution or incarceration, so it’s all back on the table.”
In the past, Stone has said that Hillary Clinton should be “executed for murder” and that Bernie Sanders “should be arrested for treason and shot.”
Yesterday, Alex Jones spoke with fellow conspiracy theorist Steve Pieczenik, who suggested that Hillary Clinton, despite her “history of lesbian activities,” is blackmailing President Obama with information about his “homosexual history in Chicago,” proving that she is up to no good.
Pieczenik said that a nefarious actor like Clinton wouldn’t think twice about committing other evil deeds, like rigging the election.
“The election will be rigged,” he said. “There’s no question about it. It is totally rigged.”
Jones, warning that his InfoWars network may be shut down “if these people take over,” said that the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice will try to take over the election system under the guise of preventing cyberattacks like “giants foxes guarding the henhouse from imaginary Russians.”
Confident of Donald Trump’s imminent victory, Alex Jones speculated wildly yesterday about “October Surprise false flags” meant to dislodge Trump and put Hillary Clinton in the White House.
Jerome Corsi, a right-wing author and vocal promoter of the birther conspiracy theory, warned that “there’s going to be some unexpected wars, there’s going to be another terrorist attack, there’s going to be possibly even an assassination attempt.”
After Jones wondered if the government “could activate their jihadi forces they brought in,” Corsi said liberals could release “stories about sex,” such as Anthony Weiner’s latest sexting scandal, as part of a “false flag manipulation of the news” that covers up other, more significant scandals.
“Donald Trump is the last real hope we have to preserve any freedom in this country,” Corsi said. “The possibility of losing the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, the Fourth Amendment, you go on, with Hillary Clinton is real. There will be no religious freedom, no gun freedom, no Second Amendment.”
Ironically, Corsi told Jones back in 2011 that he believed that “Donald Trump was subterfuge” and “working with Obama” to discredit the birther movement.
Far-right radio host Alex Jones claimed yesterday that Hillary Clinton and comedian Jimmy Kimmel have directly threatened his life, warning viewers that if he were to die, it would be the work of the Clintons.
“Understand something, Hillary,” he said. “If anything happens to me, you and your controllers are the prime suspects. I know now you think you’re above the law, so why do you care? Maybe you want to send a message by getting rid of old Alex Jones?”
Quayle explained that God is using Donald Trump to give Americans one last warning that judgment is coming: “Donald Trump, in my opinion, is God’s prosecuting attorney. He’s laying out the evidence. It’s like everything evil is swarming upon him. I think the fascinating thing about this is that I gave a word that I really thought was an answer to prayer, God said, ‘Before I allow America to be destroyed by the Russians and the Chinese, now this is hard to take, I’m going to reveal the sins of America’s leaders to the people and the people’s sins before a Holy God.’”
Later, Heavin explained that the Nephilim still roam the earth today and are actually demons, and that God has been trying to “cleanse the DNA” from humanity by destroying these entities.
“That’s why the elites try to intermarry, it’s to keep that bloodline,” Jones said.
Alex Jones has onceagain accused President Obama of having a demonic nature, this time while interviewing End Times talk radio host Steve Quayle on his conspiracy theory program yesterday.
“Why do you think Obama always has flies landing on him?” Jones asked, wondering why “everywhere he goes, there’s just flies all over the place.”
Referring to Michelle Obama’s joke that the president is “snore-y and stinky” in the morning, Quayle explained the real reason the president has poor body odor: “Can I tell you something? Michelle Obama—and you should have your guys look this up—was talking about his odor, now I’ll tell you why. Beelzebub in the New Testament means Lord of the Flies. Lord of the Flies. Beelzebub is another name for who? Satan.”
Later, Quayle went into detail about why Obama’s purported stench is further evidence of his evil nature, with Jones mentioning that Skull and Bones members worship demons in “big pools of feces.”
The Obama “Lord of the Flies administration,” according to Quayle, is bent on honoring Satan and destroying humanity, possibly through vaccines, as Jones mentioned, or chemtrails.
Jones warned that the demonic elite brings out “kooks” to “misrepresent things so they can then distract everybody.”
Far-right radio host and Donald Trump fan Alex Jones posted a message on YouTube yesterday urging InfoWars viewers to sign up as election observers for Trump’s campaign, alleging that Hillary Clinton is bent on stealing the presidential election.
Jones claimed that “Donald Trump is doing his own internal polling with some of the top, bipartisan pollers in the country.”
Jones explained: “So he’s announcing, ‘Hey, I’ve got my own internal polling showing I’m ahead in Ohio by seven points; showing I’m ahead in Pennsylvania by about 10 points; showing I’m ahead in Florida in some internal polls by 15, and these are real random polls; showing in some polls Trump is three points ahead in California, margin of error, dead heat…. Ladies and gentlemen, internal polls, not by just the Trump campaign but by other major institutions, show Trump on average, seven points ahead in basically California strongholds for the Democrats, New York, that’s why they are crapping their pants.”
Trump trails in every singlestate that Jones mentioned, at least according to publicly available polling, and not the Trump internal polls that Jones claims exist.
“Donald Trump is our general, we are modern Paul Reveres and it’s time to get out there and be involved,” he later added. “I intend to be a poll watcher myself and I intend to be out there doing exit polls, my patriotic duty.”
Back in 2012, Mitt Romney was reportedly “shellshocked” by his loss to President Obama. “I don't think there was one person who saw this coming,” one adviser said.
Public polling largely showed Romney trailing Obama in key swing states, but Romney’s team “believed the public/media polls were skewed - they thought those polls oversampled Democrats and didn't reflect Republican enthusiasm.” Indeed, many other conservative activists similarly predicted a Romney victory based on the “unskewed” versions of polling results.
While the “unskewing” obviously didn’t work, it seems that Republicans haven’t learned their lesson, as now conservative activists and the GOP presidential nominee himself are once again claiming that the polls are skewed in favor of Democrats.
The pro-Trump website Breitbart decided to conduct its own poll with Gravis Marketing, a conservative polling firm, according to editor-in-chief Alex Marlow , because “polls are often manipulated and spun to create momentum for a particular candidate or issue” and Breitbart wants “to give our readers an accurate assessment on where the American people stand on the key topics and people of the day—without the mainstream media filter.”
Unfortunately, the Breitbart poll only confirmed what other polling outlets have reported: Donald Trump is trailing Hillary Clinton.
Democratic nominee Hillary R. Clinton leads in a four-way contest with 42 percent of the vote, compared to Donald J. Trump with 37 percent, Libertarian Gary Johnson with 9 percent, and 3 percent for Green Party nominee Dr. Jill Stein, according to a Breitbart/Gravis national poll conducted Aug. 9 with 2,832 likely voters.
While Doug Kaplan of Gravis offered his best attempt at spinning the results, it seems that even Breitbart’s attempt to run its own poll failed to find Trump in the lead. However, Trump may take relief in knowing that Gravis has been stronglycriticized for its record of inaccurate polling.
Greta Van Susteren of Fox News wondered if her own network’s poll was biased against Trump, doubting that the GOP nominee is trailing Clinton since his rallies are “big.” Van Susteren’s Fox News colleague Sean Hannity said “Democrats use the liberal media to manipulate and discourage conservatives from voting” and expressed confidence that Trump will win because he’s “doing much better on social media.”
Trump confidant Roger Stone charged that the polls are skewed to help Clinton in order to hide the fact that she is planning to steal the election, saying that Trump supporters should prepare for protests and a potential “bloodbath” after the election. Trump ally Alex Jones also declared that unskewed polls and Facebook “Likes” prove that Trump is headed for a landslide victory:
