Remember That Time Obama Almost Nuked Charleston?

When Rick Santorum joined other GOP presidential hopefuls for a “national security” summit hosted by right-wing conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney last weekend, it shouldn’t have been a surprise that they would encounter fringe conspiracy theorists in the audience, including one activist who asked Santorum a winding question about immigration, an imminent communist takeover and President Obama’s plot to nuke Charleston, South Carolina.

As we reported on Monday, Santorum responded to the activist’s accusation not by rebutting her conspiracy theory but by taking offense to her claim that Santorum, a former U.S. senator, had some responsibility for the congressional GOP leadership’s response to Obama’s immigration actions. He went on to label the president a “tyrant.”

The story of Obama’s purported plot to detonate a nuclear bomb in Charleston, which the questioner said occurred just “a few months ago,” has been circulating in far-right outlets for several years.

Essentially, the story goes that Obama planned to nuke Charleston as part of a false flag attack to build support for the U.S. entering the war in Syria or another conflict.

Dave Weigel posted a breakdown of the wild accusation, which unsurprisingly, involves “InfoWars” host Alex Jones:

Jim Garrow, a fringe activist who occasionally appears in far-right media outlets insisting that he is a former intelligence agent out to expose Obama’s plan to speak to aliens, launch a Canadian invasion of the U.S. and kill 300 million Americans, has also promoted the claim, with a twist involving George Soros.

Garrow pointed to a spike in dolphin deaths, which were likely caused by the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill, as proof that three U.S. military officials thwarted Obama’s plot by detonating a nuclear bomb in the ocean, keeping Charleston safe from attack. 

He told Jones that these three patriots, along with God, stopped Obama by safely detonating one of the devices off of the Carolina coast. Garrow’s bizarre claims must have struck a chord, as he appeared last year alongside then-Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, R-Mich., and aspiring anti-Obama coup leader Paul Vallely at a Michigan “Freedom Summit.”

Paranoia-Rama: Muslim Infiltration, Gay End Times And Liberal Killers

Now that gay people and the Muslim Brotherhood have taken over the government, conservative pundits have a lot of thoughts that they want to share — scary thoughts about anti-Christian persecution and a (non-existent) Egyptian court case that may throw two American leaders behind bars.

Alex Jones: Liberals Are 'Demonic Villains' Who 'Want Blood' And Are 'Going To Kill Everybody'

Joel Gilbert, a conspiracy theorist filmmaker who followed up his 2012 opus on President Obama’s secret communist father with a recent movie comparing the president the Wizard of Oz, joined Alex Jones yesterday to discuss Obama’s “game plan” to stage a radical Marxist takeover of America.

Jones was, of course, in complete agreement, telling Gilbert, “That’s what I’ve found when I’ve been around socialists and communists at events over the decades.”

“I’ve been around a lot of them at all sorts of behind-the scenes Democratic conventions,” he said. “They’re really like criminal, bank robber types, like felon types I’ve been around before that are really creepy and have bad will towards people. And behind the scenes they’ll go, ‘Listen, when we take over we’re going to kill everybody. We want blood.’”

“They really are demonic villains, but on the surface, it’s like ‘I’m liberal.’ They are just so sick.”

Alex Jones: 'Rand Paul Is Awesome,' Just 'Playing Politics' To Moderate His Image

It’s no secret that conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is a huge fan of Sen. Rand Paul, and he is positively giddy about the prospect of the Kentucky Republican running for president.

On Monday, the “InfoWars” host urged his followers not to back a third-party candidate but to “take over one of the two big parties” and rally around people like Paul, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who are disliked by the “power structure.”

Jones told his viewers that Paul is the real deal, and if he appears to have moderated his views or distanced himself from his father’s extreme positions over the last few years, it is only because he is “playing politics” with the elitists in the media and government who are intent on destroying him.

I’ve known Rand Paul since 1995. He’s been at Austin [home of InfoWars], we’ve interviewed him. I am one of the first people to ever get him on air, probably the first. I know Rand Paul and I know he’s for real. That’s why even though he has played politics with them and come out and said some things that they want to hear, the Atlantic Monthly and others are saying 'don’t believe him, he’s nuts like his father,' because yeah, he is a constitutionalist patriot like his father and they know that. He’s playing politics with them, like Clinton played politics in saying he didn’t want your guns or Obama did. Well, he’s doing that on the opposite end, and they know it and they don’t like it and they’re coming after him. Rand Paul is awesome.

Paranoia-Rama: Islamists Take Over The White House, Minneapolis Through Subliminal Messages And No-Go Zones

After spending a week denouncing non-existent “no-go zones,” it was no surprise that conservatives steered their anti-Islam anger into attacks on President Obama, especially after his State of the Union address.

GOP Rep: Ban Abortion To Lift God's Curse Off Of America

On Wednesday, Rep. Walter Jones, R-N.C., called into conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ radio show to promote the House GOP’s 20-week abortion ban, a bill which was supposed to be brought up for a vote on the anniversary of Roe v. Wade but was scuttled after several members raised concerns about the bill’s language regarding rape.

The congressman told the “InfoWars” host that abortions after 20 weeks are “partial birth abortions,” which is actually a specific procedure banned by a 2003 law, and called on Republicans to rally around the bill.

Alex Jones was positively thrilled: “If we get rid of this abortion industry, I think the curse that is on this country, and who can deny that we are under a curse, will be lifted. Who can kill 55 million babies and get away with it? It’s just unbelievable.”

“I agree,” Rep. Jones replied.

Alex Jones: One Billion People Will Die If Pope Francis Gets His Way

Alex Jones fears that while Pope Francis “goes out and hugs old people and people with diseases,” he is actually bent on creating a one-world government.

Jones took issue with the Pope’s recent message on the environment, which the “InfoWars” host thought could potentially lead to the deaths of at least one billion people.

“Carbon taxes will kill one billion people over a decade,” Jones said“Obama’s told them, you can’t’ have cars, you can’t have air conditioning, you can’t have medicine, you can’t have anything.”

Alex Jones Envisions Paul-Cruz Dream Ticket: 'Rand Paul Is The Best'

Sen. Rand Paul has scored a big endorsement for his potential presidential candidacy…from legendary conspiracy theorist Alex Jones

Paul has appeared a number of times on Jones’s program and has said he relies on the “Infowars” host for information on the Bilderbergers and the “people who are promoting this globalist agenda," so it came as no surprise when Jones endorsed him for president yesterday, citing their years of friendship.

Jones’ endorsement came after an interview with the senator’s father, former Rep. Ron Paul, who warned of an imminent economic collapse and foreign calamities.

“Rand Paul is the best,” Jones said after the interview concluded. “I trust him. I’ve known him for 19 years and he’s the guy for president.”

Jones also had an idea for the candidate Paul should pick as his running mate: Sen. Ted Cruz.

“Ted Cruz will make a good VP," Jones said. "I’m telling you, Ted Cruz is getting more aggressive. That’s why, in polls, he’s now number one. In real polls, Ted Cruz has now taken the lead because he’s being aggressive and that’s what people want.”

The “InfoWars” host has previously boasted of his nearly two-decade relationship with Sen. Paul while cautioning that “he’s got a real shot at [the presidency] except for the electronic voting machine fraud.”

Watch Out: Islam, Socialism, Environmentalism Uniting To Kill Us All

Alex Jones invited WorldNetDaily columnist Lord Christopher Monckton onto “Infowars” yesterday to discuss everything from the Paris terrorist attacks to climate change, which the two agreed is a myth that was created to bring about an oppressive one-world government.

Monckton connected the dots between the two issues, alleging that radical Islamists, socialists and environmentalists are all coming together to kill billions of people in order to achieve the United Nations/Ted Turner objective of reducing the world’s population.

“What they want to do is reduce the population not by one billion but to one billion,” he said. “It’s now 7.2 billion, they want to cut the population by 6.2 billion.... It’s a conspiracy.”

“They are ganging up together, the totalitarians, Islam and socialism and environmentalism, worldwide, getting into bed together to destroy as many of the world’s population as they can,” he added.

Right-Wing Pastor Claims Obama Made Deal With Terrorists To Attack Other Countries While He's President

Alex Jones hosted ultraconservative Harlem pastor James David Manning last week to discuss the terrorist attacks in Paris. Manning, earning his spot on the conspiracy-minded program, theorized that countries like France are suffering terrorist attacks instead of the U.S. because President Obama has made a deal to support groups such as ISIS, Al Qaeda and the Taliban in return for postponing attacks against America until he has completed his term as president.

After insisting that France “should expect these kinds of things to happen” for “embracing” Muslim immigrants, Manning explained his theory as to why the incident “happened in Paris and not in New York City.”

“Is there a reason why, since the fraud of 9/11, that Muslims have been coddled and embraced and thought of as a people that are not people to be feared and we’ve had no major event here in America?” he speculated. “Is it because Barack Hussein Obama, having a Muslim name and Muslim ties and praising Islam, that it has not taken place here in New York and we’re looking to see this happen later on in a very violent way? Something suspicious is happening here. We have joined forces with Al Qaeda in Syria and been supportive of a large number of other Islamist acts around the globe, so are we being protected because we are supportive of Islamic activity, jihadist activity, Al Qaeda, Taliban, ISIS. I’m just suspicious that we haven’t had any attack here that Paris, France, has had and others have had as well, that somehow we are being protected.”

“Aren’t we the big dog? Aren’t we the biggest world power? Why shouldn’t we be the target of these kinds of attacks? Unless there is some sort of deal out there that we don’t know about,” he said.

Manning said that other countries like France are facing attacks because Obama has made a deal with terrorists and is “opening up the doors for others to be attacked.”

He bravely added the caveat that he doesn’t necessarily believe everything he just said, insisting that he’s “simply asking as a question” about whether Obama has cut a deal with terrorists to protect America during his presidency. Jones, never afraid to fully embrace a conspiracy theory, told Manning that “at a certain level that is definitely going on.”

Alex Jones: Fluoride And Vaccines Are Greater Threat Than Guns

On his “Infowars” radio talk show this week, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones warned his listeners that the federal government plans to disarm gun owners and militarize the police in preparation for a war against right-wing activists. Jones explained that “the government wants all the guns” even though the “few right-wing nut bags” in American kill fewer people than bees.

“Listen, the government wants all the guns, it’s illegitimate, and it says we’re bad having them,” he said. “We have a few right-wing nut bags who are gonna shoot stuff up? Yeah. They’re less dangerous than honeybees, they kill two hundred-something a year. Right-wingers kill a couple dozen. I don’t want to kill all of the honeybees because they kill people sometimes.”

He then pointed his finger at what he considered to be the true evils plaguing American society: “What’s dangerous is the pharmaceuticals, what’s dangerous is the vaccines, what’s dangerous is the high fructose corn syrup, what’s dangerous is the fluoride. That’s killing millions of people a year, it’s worse than tobacco.”

Paranoia-Rama: Return Of The 'Libtard'-Loathing Police Chief, Obama's Third Term And Hunger Games Exposed

As everybody knows, America is turning into a chaotic terrorist haven filled with race riots that is also somehow a Nazi police state, or at least that is what we learned this week from some of our favorite right-wing activists and politicians.

Phyllis Schlafly And Alex Jones Have Immigration Meltdown: We Are On 'Accelerated Collapse-Of-Rome Timetable'

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones hosted legendary conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly on his “Infowars” program today to talk about President Obama’s executive action granting deportation relief to some undocumented immigrants, which both agreed would inevitably lead to the collapse of the nation.

“This really is the end of the republic, the end of Congress,” Jones said. “There’s been a lot of signposts on this road to perdition, but I don’t think I have strong enough words for the constitutional crisis we’re in, where on guns, UN treaties, our military, our power plants, our borders.”

“Well, Alex, you’re absolutely right in what you said and there are several items that you pointed out that I haven’t seen in any other news media,” Schlafly replied. “It’s just an outrage, and it does spell the death of probably the country.”

Criticizing Republicans in Congress for doing too little to stop the immigration action, Schlafly said of Obama, “He’s doing it for Democratic votes and he’s doing it to really break down the American system the way it is and make us a different kind of country.”

“And it’s not like we’re getting immigrants from high-skilled areas, we’re getting people that almost vote to a man for the most radical socialist communist agendas,” Jones interjected.

“That’s all they know,” Schlafly agreed. “They come from a country where big government was everything. They don’t know anything about our constitutional principles of limited government and balance of budget and keep spending down, they’re not familiar with any arguments like that.”

Jones warned, “We are going the way of Rome bringing in the giant third-world populations, and it seems to be an accelerated collapse-of-Rome timetable now.

“Yes, you’re absolutely right and I think that’s what Obama wants,” Schlafly responded. “He does not want America to be exceptional. He does not want us to be religious or Christian. He wants to absolutely change us so we are no better than any other country.”

Alex Jones: Government Will Use Ferguson To Start Race War

“InfoWars” host Alex Jones insisted today that the demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri, and elsewhere are all part of a grand plot to bring about racial violence and another civil war in America.

Jones warned that the Ferguson protests will lead to a government attack on the Tea Party and “the attempted takedown of the Republic,” adding that there will be an “attempt to start a civil war, playing the people off against the police and people off against each other racially.”

“Minorities, who are really the majority now in most areas, will see the Democratic Party as their Kapo in the prison,” Jones continued. “The UN’s the warden and they’ve got us all in racial gangs and we’re all in a prison together like a bunch of chumps.”

Alex Jones: 'The Real False Flag Could Be An Assassination Of Obama'

Yesterday on “InfoWars,” Alex Jones asked listeners what they expect to happen in 2015. As one might expect, InfoWars fans were a bit frightened about the future, and one even suggested that President Obama could be assassinated.

Jones agreed but with a twist, warning that “the real false flag could be an assassination of Obama or it could be an attempted assassination” that would be used to “lionize” the president and demonize his critics.

“Don’t think that even though he’s their Harvard minion and their golden idol, don’t think that the globalists wouldn’t be above assassinating him to create a martyred deity out of him,” he said.

Five Conservatives Who Don't Understand Net Neutrality…But Are Definitely Against It!

On Monday, President Obama publicly urged the Federal Communications Commission to adopt strong rules preserving net neutrality, the principle that internet service providers must treat all data equally.

Obama’s comments placed a previously fairly niche technical issue right into the middle of the national political debate, forcing commentators to take a side on something many of them did not seem to understand. But luckily, many conservative politicians and pundits have an easy way of deciding where to stand on an issue: if Obama is for it, it will destroy America and they are against it!

1. Ted Cruz

Sen. Ted Cruz got the right-wing net neutrality pile-on started with a tweet calling the proposal “Obamacare for the Internet."

It didn’t really make sense, but as Matt Yglesias notes, that wasn’t the point: “What, if anything, that phrase means is difficult to say. But its political significance is easy to grasp. All true conservatives hate Obamacare, so if net neutrality is Obamacare for the internet, all true conservatives should rally against it.”

2. Bryan Fischer

As soon as Cruz spoke out, his far-right acolytes seem to have felt obligated to follow. On his radio program on Monday, the American Family Association’s Bryan Fischer struggled to grasp the proposal that he was definitely against, claiming that it would ban internet providers from charging customers more for faster service — something that already happens and that has nothing to do with net neutrality.

3. Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck is outraged that President Obama wants to end “the freedom of the internet” and ruin something that’s “working pretty well” because “the government is not involved in it at all.” Apparently unaware that current FCC regulations allow his online network, The Blaze, to stream on an open internet, Beck claimed that regulations preserving net neutrality would end this supposedly government-free system in which he operates his business.

Beck’s cohost Pat Gray accidentally debunked his own point by comparing Internet regulation to the interstate highway system, which he seems to also think remains open and accessible because it’s free from government interference.

4. FreedomWorks

The Tea Party group FreedomWorks got into the game yesterday with a video “clearing up” net neutrality for its supporters.

As Consumerist explains, FreedomWorks’ net neutrality explanation is basically a work of fiction:

“Supporters of the plan call it a [uses finger quotes] ‘free and open Internet’ but in reality it’s anything but,” says Somberg. “What net neutrality does is force providers to treat all Web content equally — the same speeds, the same prices, the same access.”

This is simply untrue.

Net neutrality merely says that ISPs can’t slow down, block, or prioritize any content. It doesn’t mean that everything gets treated with the same speed — just that an ISP does nothing to impede or boost any particular content company’s speed. So if it’s fast coming in from the company, it should be fast going out to the end-user. And if the host is slow, then it remains slow.

5. Alex Jones

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones added his own special twist to the net neutrality debate, claiming that it is a “high tech version of what the Soviets and the Nazis and the Chinese Communists and Fidel Castro and every other nut ball did.” 

Bonus: David Barton

While net neutrality might have just recently crossed the radar of many right-wing commentators, make-believe historian David Barton has been beating the anti-net-neutrality drum for years. In 2011, Barton called net neutrality “socialism on the internet” and “redistribution of wealth through the internet” and insisted that it is "wicked stuff" that goes against the dictates of the Bible and the Founding Fathers.

This launched Barton into a discourse on the concept of “fairness,” which he said “is a word no Christian should ever use in their vocabulary” because “what happened to Jesus wasn’t fair.”

Alex Jones Has Net Neutrality Meltdown: This Is What The Nazis Did!

Alex Jones is the latest right-wing broadcaster to completely misrepresent net neutrality, telling “Infowars” viewers this week that President Obama’s support for net neutrality will lead to big government tyranny.

Jones, in his typically paranoid fashion, claimed that the White House will use net neutrality to “shut down” his Infowars website along with the Drudge Report, calling it a “high tech version of what the Soviets and the Nazis and the Chinese Communists and Fidel Castro and every other nut ball did.”

That’s right, supporting equal treatment of internet data and preserve an open internet is just like what Hitler did.

Jones compared net neutrality to paying the mafia not to threaten your family or your business, creating a “nation of sheep ruled by wolves” who will “put you in government housing pins to run your life, bring you down and imprison your children.”

“Well not me, ever!” Jones declared.

After completely misrepresenting net neutrality, Jones asked God to give him “the strength of the words to unlock the spirit of humanity with a huge awakening to bring these people down forever and to bind them to Hell.”

Jones cited Ted Cruz’s widely mocked “net neutrality is Obamacare for the Internet” tweet as proof of his absurd claim that net neutrality is a government takeover of the internet: “I like Ted Cruz, he knows what he’s talking about.”

Phyllis Schlafly: Obama Doesn't Love America, Dares To Send Women In Combat

Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly chatted with “Infowars” host Alex Jones on Monday, where the two discussed the Pentagon’s decision last year to lift the military ban on women serving in combat positions.

Schlafly raised her concerns about the lifting of the ban after Jones worried that the military might be used as a “domestic force” to “go after the Tea Party,” telling the fringe conspiracy theorist: “I don’t have any respect for the military who send women into combat.”

After Jones suggested that Reagan went silent on criticizing the “New World Order” after a failed assassination attempt against him, Schlafly conceded that “Reagan wasn’t perfect” — a blasphemous claim in certain right-wing circles — but still loved this country.

Unlike Obama!

“You’re saying, bottom line he was a good guy who loved this country,” Jones said. “That’s a big difference from Obama who obviously wants to destroy it.”

Schlafly agreed: “He obviously doesn’t love this country, he doesn’t want us to think we’re better than anybody else and of course we are.”

Tucker Carlson: Obama Stoking 'Racial Fears' To Keep Power

Tucker Carlson, the editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller, appeared on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' Infowars program on Election Day to warn about growing racial divisions in America as a result of immigration and President Obama’s time in office. Carlson said that identity politics based on race are a new feature in U.S. politics and that this development is Obama’s fault, of course. 

He warned that the president is attempting to use “race to divide the country and get out the vote and use racial fears to get their base out to the polls.” “Look around the world," Carlson said. "You've traveled, you know, practically every other country on the planet is divided by ethnic politics. We haven’t been historically but we’re moving in that direction. You don’t even want to play with that stuff and they’re doing it in a big way and it’s reckless.”

After Jones warned that American elites “want to flood us with all these illegals” in order to divide the country and “create that balkanization.”

Carlson agreed: “I don’t think there’s any doubt about it. There’s no doubt that they see immigration as a source of political power and that’s scary.”

Carlson then agreed with Jones’ assessment that the U.S. is turning “into a pure democracy where hordes of illegals will vote away our freedoms,” citing California as a “one-party state that is literally crumbling” due to immigration.

Joel Gilbert: Liberals Using Pot To 'Exert Total Control' Over Drugged Populace

Joel Gilbert, creator of last year’s hit film “Dreams From My Real Father” (which made the case that President Obama’s was lying about his communist genetics) is out with a new film, this one making the case that “Barack Obama is the real life Wizard of Oz.”

Unsurprisingly, Alex Jones is quite taken with Gilbert’s new movie, and welcomed the filmmaker onto his Infowars program last week to discuss the various ways in which they believe liberals are destroying America. One of those ways, it turns out, is the push for reforming marijuana laws, which Jones said that he actually supports but also thinks is a liberal plot to keep people “stunned and stumbling around” and voting for Democrats.

“Well certainly the progressives will use anything, any tool, anything that comes up to exert total control,” Gilbert agreed. “The more the progressives can promote anything that keeps people from focusing on their radical agenda, the more they’ll get behind it.”
