Roger Stone Floats Possibility Of Executing Bill Clinton For Treason

Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone returned to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ radio program yesterday, this time floating the possibility of executing Bill Clinton for treason.

Jones started the conversation on the Clintons by calling Hillary Clinton “a whore, politically,” alleging that she tried to raise campaign money from foreign leaders. (Incidentally, the only candidate doing that is Trump.)

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.”

'The Election Will Be Rigged, There's No Question About It'

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.”

The claim that President Obama is secretly gay is a favorite of Pieczenik’s.

Alex Jones And Jerome Corsi Warn Of 'October Surprise False Flag Attacks'

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.

Alex Jones: 'I Cannot Believe The Effect We're Having. It Is Biblical.'

Yesterday, Alex Jones heralded the growth of his InfoWars conspiracy theory outlet, which has gained more attention thanks to one of its biggest fans: Donald Trump.

InfoWars’ “reporting” has also been increasingly embraced by Fox News.

Jones, who believes he has been under attack from Satan, aliens, liberals determined to flee to “off-world colonies,” Hillary Clinton and Jimmy Kimmel, said on his radio program yesterday that InfoWars is currently subject to a “sickening behind-the-scenes attack” but that God is leading him through.

“God’s taken me through it,” he said. “It’s been very painful. We’ve made it through it. Other waves are coming. Still, I cannot believe the effect we’re having. It is biblical.”

Alex Jones: Hillary Clinton And Jimmy Kimmel Are Trying To Kill Me!

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?”

Jones was upset that Clinton mentioned Jones in her speech denouncing Donald Trump’s ties to the alt-right movement and conspiracy theorists and that Kimmel, who he suggested works for the New World Order and the Clinton family, made fun of him for his pickle jar conspiracy theory.

Naturally, Jones ended his diatribe by comparing himself to the Founding Fathers who fought King George III.

Alex Jones: Elites Intermarry To Preserve Demonic Bloodline

Yesterday, Trump ally and conspiracy theorist extraordinaire Alex Jones hosted Steve Quayle, an End Times radio host, and Gary Heavin, the founder of the Curves fitness chain and a conservative activist, to discuss the Satanic powers running the government.

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: 'Flies Landing On' Obama Prove He’s Satanic

Alex Jones has once again 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.”

Alex Jones: Trump On The Verge Of Winning California And New York, According To His Unskewed Polls

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.

While polls show Trump trailing in swing states and losing to Clinton by massive margins in states like New York and California, two states that Trump has said in the past that he could win in the general election, Jones said that such polls are simply “fake polls” fabricated by the liberal media. (A poll by the conservative Breitbart and Gravis Marketing also found Trump losing to Clinton).

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.”

Jones, a Trump ally who frequently hosts Trump confidant Roger Stone on his show, has frequently promoted the conspiracy theory, as have Trump and Stone, that the polls showing a Clinton lead are fabricated in order to pave the way for a rigged election.

Trump trails in every single state 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.”

Breitbart Tries To Run An Unskewed Poll, Still Finds Trump Behind

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 strongly criticized for its record of inaccurate polling.

Trump, who during the primary season couldn’t go a day without boasting about his poll numbers, now attacks the polls as “phony” and insists that the only way he could lose by Pennsylvania, where he trails by a wide margin, would be “if cheating goes on.” (Voter fraud conspiracy theorists have often leveled bogus claims that the practice occurs in Pennsylvania and nationwide.)

Trump also claims that the entire election may be rigged by massive voter fraud and has encouraged supporters to sign up to be election observers to “stop Crooked Hillary from rigging the election!” He similarly claimed that voter fraud helped Democrats win the 2012 election.

His allies have taken up the charge.

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.”

Both Hannity and Breitbart cited the same story from the conservative blog Gateway Pundit, which found that “Trump will win in a landslide” because “Trump has nearly double the amount of ‘Likes’ that Clinton has!

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:

If only Facebook “Likes” counted as votes.

The InfoWars Candidate: How Donald Trump Is Broadcasting Conservative Misinformation

Hardly a week goes by without Donald Trump championing a new conspiracy theory, often qualifying his claims by saying that he is just asking a question or repeating what he heard or read from an unnamed source.

So it wasn’t too surprising to see Trump allege yesterday that the general election may be “rigged” and claim today that “there’s something phony” about polls which show him trailing Hillary Clinton.

Trump’s warning that the election will be stolen and that the polls are deliberately suppressing his level of public support came just days after his confidant Roger Stone and conspiracy theorist radio host Alex Jones similarly claimed that Clinton plans to rob Trump of the election and that her allies in the media are skewing polls against him so people won’t notice it when the election gets stolen.

The typical path that a bizarre or dubious story takes to get from the cesspool of the far-right fringe media to the mouth of a GOP politician goes something like this: A fringe right-wing outlets like Jones’ InfoWars or WorldNetDaily will report a “fact” that will then get picked up by conservative talk radio hosts, who either use the story in its entirety or refine it a bit. The story then makes its way to Fox News and, from there, to leading GOP politicians and even presidential candidates.

But not for Trump.

Rather than wait for them to percolate up through the right-wing media, Trump takes conspiracy theories straight from the source, often picking up bizarre claims directly from outlets like InfoWarsWorldNetDailyFreedom Outpost, or even email chains and the National Enquirer:

And hes proud of it.

Trump has appeared alongside Alex Jones, hailing the unhinged radio conspiracy theorist’s “amazing” reputation.

He rejoiced at the news that WorldNetDaily — the site whose “reporting” he has cited to in his birther accusations against President Obama — named him its 2015 Man of the Year.

Trump has also made clear that he believes everything he reads in the National Enquirer because if what the grocery store tabloid publishes isn’t true, they can get sued.

He often boasts, while making one or another outrageous claim, that he has the best sources.

We can only wonder what will happen when Trump reads Infowars’ and WorldNetDaily’s coverage of such topics as false flag attacks or Obama’s “real” father.

Alex Jones: Pope Francis Sounds Like 'Satan Himself'

Yesterday, Alex Jones unleashed yet another diatribe against Pope Francis, this time wondering if Francis is the false prophet mentioned in the Book of Revelation.

“I wonder if he’s got a little red tail wrapped up in his shorts,” Jones said. “I mean, if I heard the stuff he says and I didn’t know who said it, I’d say that’s Satan himself.”

The Trump-aligned conspiracy theorist declared that “the Catholic Church is no more” and that Francis is ushering in the End Times.

Donald Trump's New Conspiracy Theory: General Election Might Be 'Rigged'

For days, Donald Trump has been complaining that the Commission on Presidential Debates deliberately scheduled debates to coincide with NFL games in order to help Hillary Clinton. Today in Ohio, Trump said that the general election may already be “rigged,” saying that he “hears” that the election might be stolen, before meandering into a tangent and never finishing his sentence:

Trump has justified his criticism of the debate schedule by citing a letter he received from the NFL, even though the NFL says it never sent a letter to Trump, and by ignoring the fact that the Commission on Presidential Debates is a bipartisan group that came up with the dates back in September. In 2012, the debates also overlapped with NFL games.

The theme that the general election will be rigged has been paraded by Trump confidant Roger Stone, who told conspiracy theorist Alex Jones yesterday that Clinton might “steal this election” using the Supreme Court “now that Scalia has been taken care of,” a reference to conspiracy theories about Justice Antonin Scalia’s death, which Trump has also embraced.

Stone suggested that polls are skewing the results to show Clinton ahead of Trump so no one realizes it when she steals the election.

He said that if the election results don’t reflect the findings of Trump’s “private polls,” the GOP nominee should challenge the election and have his people “march on Washington” and tell Clinton that he will “block your inauguration.”

Stone similarly told Milo Yiannopoulous of Breitbart that if there is an “illegitimate” election, then there will be “widespread civil disobedience” and “it will be a bloodbath.”

“I think we have widespread voter fraud, but the first thing that Trump needs to do is begin talking about it constantly,” Stone said. “He needs to say for example, today would be a perfect example: ‘I am leading in Florida. The polls all show it. If I lose Florida, we will know that there’s voter fraud. If there’s voter fraud, this election will be illegitimate, the election of the winner will be illegitimate, we will have a constitutional crisis, widespread civil disobedience, and the government will no longer be the government.’”

“If you can’t have an honest election, nothing else counts,” he continued. “I think he’s gotta put them on notice that their inauguration will be a rhetorical, and when I mean civil disobedience, not violence, but it will be a bloodbath. The government will be shut down if they attempt to steal this and swear Hillary in. No, we will not stand for it. We will not stand for it.”

“So, I mean the dream here, the ultimate ideal is that he wins by such a significant margin nationally that this is unnecessary,” Yiannopoulos concluded. “But it’s interesting to hear you say this, and it’s funny also, because Trump will go there. He will go to the places other politicians wont, and he’s probably the only person to run for president within the last fifty years who would dare to do this, and might even get away with it. It’s remarkable isn’t it how he’s just sort of re-injected reality into politics”.

5 Conservatives Who've Admitted Trump Won't Actually Build A Border Wall

Donald Trump's acceptance speech last night at the Republican National Convention was high on fear-mongering and low on policy specifics. Not surprisingly, one specific policy he did bring up was his promise to "build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities." (Although, as the Washington Post pointed out, he left out his promise to make Mexico pay for it.)

Trump's promise to build a wall along the entire border with Mexico has been a cornerstone of a campaign that has cast Mexicans and Mexican Americans as frightening outsiders and criminals. It's not a serious policy proposal. Instead, it's rhetorical prop for a campaign that relies on stirring up fear of outsider.

As the Anti-Defamation League has explained, building a wall along the entire border would be "impractical and very likely ineffective":

A wall or a fence along the entire border with Mexico would be impractical and very likely ineffective. The border between the U.S. and Mexico is almost 2,000 miles long. It spans difficult terrain, including deserts and mountains. Rivers flow along two thirds of the border. Much of the area is private property, which the government would have to buy from the owners to build a fence or wall, and many do not want to sell the land. The logistics alone make building a wall very difficult, if not impossible.

A handful of conservatives, recognizing this reality, have recently attempted to give Trump an out by acknowledging that he won't actually build a wall but is instead talking about a "virtual" or metaphorical wall.

Rep. Blake Farenthold of Texas, an enthusiastic supporter of Trump, said earlier this month that "it's going to end up having to be a virtual wall," saying that aerial surveillance and "strategically placed walls" in urban areas are a more effective border control strategy than a literal wall along 2,000 miles of border. "You can buy a predator drone for what two miles of wall costs," he said.

Another Republican congressman who's supporting Trump, Rep. Chris Collins of New York, has also claimed that Trump's wall will be "virtual," telling a newspaper, “Maybe we will be building a wall over some aspects of it; I don’t know.”

Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has also endorsed Trump, has also claimed that Trump is speaking only metaphorically about a wall, saying, "It’s a wall, but it’s a technological wall, it’s a digital wall … There are some that hear this is going to be 1,200 miles from Brownsville to El Paso, 30-foot high, and listen, I know you can’t do that. ”

Even Dan Stein, the head of the anti-immigrant Federation for American Immigration Reform, has acknowledged that Trump's wall isn't a real thing.

“The wall is a surrogate for getting the border under control,” Stein said last month. “There have been physical structures in place down there since the 1980s. You need physical structures at certain high entry points to channel traffic. Ranchers who are out there in the middle of nowhere, they don’t see why you would need a border wall.”

“The wall is a surrogate for border control operations,” Stein added. “What [Trump’s] saying is he’s gonna get the job done. People who believe he’s actually gonna put a brick on every centimeter of 2,000 miles are in a sense mistaking his intention. The language he’s using is what you use in a political campaign, and if you take Hillary Clinton at her word, then she wants to embrace a limitless immigration platform.”

None other than manic Trump supporter Alex Jones has also admitted that Trump's wall promise is baloney, telling The New Republic, "The border wall is just a metaphor. It’s ridiculous."

These aren't people who object to Trump's fiercely anti-immigrant agenda. But they do acknowledge that his wall proposal would be an ineffective way to achieve even his draconian anti-immigrant goals.

Trump is conning his supporters with tales of his building prowess and vows to build a "big, fat, beautiful wall."

He isn't proposing a border wall as a serious solution to a serious problem. Instead, it's a rhetorical prop in his campaign of demonizing and scapegoating immigrants, and even some of his allies are admitting it.

Alex Jones Diagnoses Hillary Clinton With Psychopathy

It is sad to see Dinesh D’Souza, once considered by many to be a “conservative intellectual,” continue to drift to the far-right fringe. In yet the latest example of this, D'Souza appeared yesterday on Alex Jones’ bizarre conspiracy theory program to discuss his new film on Hillary Clinton.

D’Souza, who claims that Clinton is trying to “steal America,” apparently forgot about the American principle of the right to be represented by an attorney, as he criticized Clinton for representing an alleged rapist in a 1975 trial while she was working as a lawyer in Arkansas.

Referring to an audio recording of Clinton discussing the trial, D’Souza misrepresented Clinton’s remarks and even said he heard “the voice of evil" in the tape.

“And for me, it’s knowing about how psychopaths and sociopaths are,” Jones added. “They have this real self, but everything else is like fake to manipulate. When she goes to California and speaks to Latino groups, she puts on this fake Latino voice. When she goes to Kentucky, she goes, ‘How you doin’ there, boy,’ like she’s, you know, Grandma Clampett getting some possum grits. I mean, it’s like I wouldn’t hang around with anybody that when they got around different groups, talked a different way. I mean, it is bizarre to show that that’s what psychopaths do – and I think she’s a psychopath, I think she’s a full-blown psychopath – is that they do feel this need to just put on these fake acts. It’s very creepy.”

“I think so,” D’Souza added. “And I think she might even have gotten some of this from Bill, because Bill is the master of it.”

D’Souza continued, “People have heard, ‘I did not have sex with that woman,’ but what they actually haven’t heard is you go back and play the old tapes where Bill and Hillary were both confronted with all this stuff and the kind of silky nonsense they put out there, at one point, I think it was Steve Kroft says to the Clintons, ‘Well, you know, I think Americans can kind of accept that you guys, whatever your problems, you’ve worked it out, you’ve made some kind of arrangement, and then Bill jumps in. He goes, ‘Arrangement? We don’t have an arrangement, we love each other. We have a marriage. It’s totally different.’”

Jones interjected: “Yeah, she’s not banging three chicks a day like me too.”

Later, Jones defended Roger Ailes against reports that Megyn Kelly said he had sexually harassed her, claiming that Kelly has “Jezebelian energy” and is secretly “an agent for the Clintons.”

“Well, that’s why Megyn Kelly – I don’t want to get off on a jag – I’ve watched her, I see her on that sinister power trip, it’s that Jezebelian energy, and, you know, Roger Ailes made her who she is,” Jones said. “To see her say, ‘He hugged me once too hard and I want him taken out,’ and I know, because I have the inside baseball, it is from the Clintons, there are talking points, people are being threatened, I’ve talked to the host. And it’s like wow, she really is an agent of the Clintons and all that stuff with Trump and it’s like seeing her join with evil, now, this is a thousand times worse with Hillary, obviously, but it’s just, it’s the creepiness. It’s the dishonor of it. It’s the sliminess that really tells you what we’re dealing with is a bunch of evil people.”

Although Jones said he lacks the energy to control other people, “these evil people” like the Clintons “enjoy… running other people’s lives, knowing what you’re doing, controlling you, ruining you, just because they’re quite frankly jealous of you, and they’re jealous of America, they’re jealous of free market, they’re jealous of open, free societies, compared to everything else, not saying we’re perfect. It’s like what you said in your first film, they want mount our head on the wall.”
