HUFFPOST HILL - What It's Like To Be 16 And Retweeted By The President-Elect
Huffington Post - 5 days
Nancy Pelosi has led House Democrats so long she remembers when Virginia Foxx was the craziest member of the opposition. Senate Republicans are looking to sync better with Donald Trump, so OF COURSE they’re begging an octogenarian Mormon from Utah to stay in the upper chamber. And Donald Trump’s administration will contain an amount of Goldman Sachs employees and other Wall Street veterans typically found only in Alex Jones’ “Da Vinci Code” fan fiction and Dalton parent-teacher conference day. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Wednesday, November 30th, 2016: WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE 16 AND RETWEETED BY THE PRESIDENT-ELECT (A READOUT OF THE TIME WE DMed WITH A TEENAGER) - Monday evening, as President-elect Trump was tirading against CNN, 16-year-old California high school student Seth Morton tweeted at the network’s Jeff Zeleny, “Pathetic - you have no sufficient evidence that Donald Trump did not suffer from voter fraud, shame! @realDonaldTrump.” As sometimes happens when a teenager demands s ...

How you'd love to troll your Trump-supporting family this Thanksgiving and what to say instead
Yahoo News - 12 days
Happy Turkey Day everyone, and welcome to the worst Thanksgiving of your life. Beloved KKK-darling Donald Trump has been officially elected president of the United States of America, promising to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, put law-abiding Muslims on a registry and destroy our enemies at Hamilton . For people who voted for Clinton, going home to visit their Trump-supporting parents this Thanksgiving is an exercise in torture — and yet somehow they still need to find a way to talk to them about the election. SEE ALSO: 6 vegetarian Thanksgiving mains even carnivores crave Of course, it's too late to change Trump-supporters' vote, but it's on anti-Trumpers to respectfully challenge them on their attitudes, help curb the wave of hate violence currently sweeping the nation and prepare for 2018. And no, they can't do it by calling them racist misogynistic morons — science says that just doesn't help. Below is a guide of everything Clinton folks want to scream at their Trump-s ...

Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Says Donald Trump Called To Thank Him After The Election
Huffington Post - 21 days
President-elect Donald Trump called Alex Jones, the prominent conservative radio host and conspiracy theorist, to thank him and his followers for their support, Jones said in a video posted Friday. “Listen, Alex, I just talked to the kings and queens of the world, world leaders, you name it,” Jones recalled Trump saying. “But it doesn’t matter, I wanted to talk to you, to thank your audience, and I’ll be on the next few weeks to thank them.” Jones has long been on the fringes of the conservative movement, using his radio show and his website, InfoWars.com, to propagate widely debunked or baseless conspiracy theories ― such as the notion that the Clintons are murderers or that mass shootings in recent years were permitted by the government as excuses to strip away Americans’ rights. But he was also among Trump’s most ardent media allies throughout the president-elect’s often-volatile and controversial campaign. In the video, Jones railed against mainstream news outlets, calli ...

White Supremacist Already Vetting 2020 Candidates
Huffington Post - 28 days
Read The Political Garbage Chute for more daily fake news. FORD BEACH, FLORIDA -- Bill Ricci describes himself as a "white nationalist" and a "race realist." He admits that many others who do not share his views have referred to him more simply as a white supremacist. Ricci says, however, that it's not just the different races he's pragmatic about. "I know Donald Trump probably ain't gonna win," Ricci told our reporter, "and that sure does take the wind out of my white sheets." As sad as Ricci is about Trump's likely impending electoral doom, he says he's choosing to remain positive and "focus on the beautiful, bright white future" Trump has inspired within the white nationalist movement. "Before Trump came along," Mr. Ricci said, "Republicans worked for our votes, but they did in much subtler ways. It kinda makes you feel like maybe your particularly bleached world view isn't all that welcome when you can't be loud and proud about your sincerely held belief that your sk ...

I Have to Be Able To Tell My Children I Stood Against Trump
Huffington Post - about 1 month
This post originally appeared on fortheloveofwineandcoffee.com One day, years from now, the horror of the 2016 presidential election will appear much more horrible to future generations. I believe the years will progress our country into a more inclusive, diverse and enlightened one. I don't believe history will be kind to Mr. Trump's candidacy and his legacy will be an ugly blemish on the face of modern democracy. I believe after our children learn of the atrocities committed by Trump and the carnage left behind by his vile campaign, they'll then look to us--as survivors of the 2016 election--and want to know how we felt. More than that, what did we do about it? When he questioned the sitting President of the United States' birthplace for no conceivable reason, was the stench of prejudice apparent? When Trump mocked a disabled reporter, did we defend the differently abled? When Trump planned to register an entire religious group, did we not see the historical parallels? ...

Texas elections official says ‘human error’ likely behind ballot confusion
Yahoo News - about 1 month
Early voting has started in many states, and some conservative websites are already trafficking in conspiracy theories that the election is being decided unfairly. On Tuesday, the Drudge Report promoted a story from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ Info Wars website, which had posted a summary of Facebook posts written by two different women in Texas. One woman, Lisa Houlette of Canyon, Texas, wrote on Facebook that she thought she had voted for Donald Trump, only to see on the summary page before she cast her ballot that Democrat Hillary Clinton’s name was checked.

Alex Jones Says Hillary Clinton And Obama Are Real Demons
Huffington Post - about 2 months
Radio host and Donald Trump supporter Alex Jones doesn’t need to tell Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama to go to Hell. He believes they already reside there. On Monday, Jones, host of his eponymous show on the Genesis Communications Network, said the two were literally the devil, Media Matters reports. He called Clinton a “psychopathic demon.” “I’m sure of that, and people around her say she’s so dark now, and so evil, and so possessed that they are having nightmares, they’re freaking out,” Jones ranted (watch above). He claimed that both Clinton and Obama smell of evil and sulfur, attracting flies when no one else does. Something smells, all right. Jones is a “crackpot” right-wing conspiracy theorist with millions of followers. He believes the government had a hand in 9/11 and has said the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre was “completely fake with actors.” But not everyone is skeptical of Jones. Donald Trump has praised the radio host, dec ...

HUFFPOST HILL - Tweens Gather Sunday To Solemnly Make 'Bush Did 9-11' Jokes
The Huffington Post - 3 months
The Supreme Court struck down ‘straight-ticket’ voting, prompting a million pot-bellied party bosses of yesteryear to snuff out their cigars in disgust. Sunday is the 15th anniversary of 9/11, the date when a naked and confused Alex Jones punched his way out of the embryonic pod deep beneath the earth from whence he came.  And Louis Gohmert took a break from making inflammatory statements about immigrants, staring directly at the sun and trying and failing to rub his stomach while patting his own head. He did so just long enough to say Hillary Clinton has special needs.

9 Gun Arguments that Need to Be Disarmed (Part 2)
Huffington Post - 12 months
Part one of this blog series targeted two common utterly erroneous gun arguments, this post will cover three perceptions that are misguided. 3. "We Need Guns to Protect Us from the Government" As the Founding Fathers and Revolutionary soldiers emerged victorious from a revolt against the world's most powerful imperial nation, they were suspicious of a tyrannical government rising from the smokey, blood-soaked battlegrounds that birthed the Colonies' independence from Great Britain. However, the 2nd Amendment, which guarantees every citizen the right to bear arms, was written during a time when muskets and cannons were dominant in military arsenals and when America was too broke to afford a standing army. Regardless, Americans who conspicuously fret over a federal government takeover are free to defend themselves of the horrors of Social Security, Obamacare, the IRS and the potential of Donald Trump's sun-bleached skunk tail wig becoming the First Lady in 2016.

Trump, the Press, And How to Treat a Liar
Huffington Post - 12 months
Another day, another Donald Trump lie about the 9/11 terror attacks. Appearing on Face the Nation, Republican frontrunner Trump told host John Dickerson that prior to the attacks, the wives of the 9/11 hijackers "knew exactly what was going to happen" and were flown "back to Saudi Arabia" days before the hijacked plane strikes. This is complete nonsense. As The Washington Post explained, "There is no support for Trump's claims ... virtually all of the hijackers were unmarried." And anyone who followed news of the attacks, and the subsequent years-long investigation, ought to know that. But on Face the Nation, Dickerson didn't flinch when Trump floated his latest 9/11 lie; Dickerson didn't question Trump's absurd claim. Then following his CBS appearance, the New York Times reported that Trump was "fuzzy" on his 9/11 facts and that the wives tale didn't "align" with "the timeline and details of the hijacking of the planes." Additionally, the Times suggested Trump was simply "hav ...

HUFFPOST HILL - Mass Shootings, Donald Trump And Other Updates From Our Awful, Awful Country
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Donald Trump appeared on Alex Jones’ radio program, where he discussed the economy, national security and how Tom Brady is one classy, classy Lizard Person. Someone in San Bernardino shot a lot of people, something that will keep happening until we stop making excuses and once and for all block people displaced by war from immigrating here. And while the shooting will undoubtedly add fuel to the ongoing debate over gun control, we can proudly announce that our Kickstarter campaign to end gun violence has reached its stated goal of 35,000 thoughts and prayers. We will use these proceeds to do absolutely nothing. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Wednesday December 2nd, 2015: OBAMA NOTES 'PATTERN OF MASS SHOOTINGS' - Mollie Reilly: "President Barack Obama commented Wednesday on the shooting in San Bernardino, California, where at least 14 people were killed and an additional 14 were injured according to police.

Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Alex Jones
1974
Jones was born in 1974 in Dallas, Texas, and grew up in the Dallas suburb of Rockwall and the city of Austin, Texas.
His father, David Jones, is a dentist and his mother is a homemaker. In his video podcasts, he reports he is of Irish, German, Welsh, mostly English, and partially Native American descent.
1993
He was a lineman on his high school's football team and graduated from Anderson High School in Austin in 1993.
As a teenager, he read Gary Allen's None Dare Call It Conspiracy, which had a profound influence on him and which he calls "the easiest-to-read primer on The New World Order". After high school, Jones attended Austin Community College. Jones began his career in Austin with a live, call-in format public-access television cable TV program. In 1996, Jones switched format to radio, hosting a show named The Final Edition on KJFK (98.9FM). Ron Paul was running for Congress and was a guest on his show several times.
1995
In his early shows, Jones frequently talked about his belief that the US government was behind the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing, using the incident to put down a growing "states rights movement".
1998
In 1998, he released his first film, America Destroyed By Design.
In 1998, Jones organized a successful effort to build a new Branch Davidian church, as a memorial to those who died during the 1993 fire that ended the government's siege of the original Branch Davidian complex near Waco, Texas.
He often featured the project on his public-access television program and claimed that David Koresh and his followers were peaceful people who were murdered by Attorney General Janet Reno and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms during the siege.
1999
In 1999, he tied with Shannon Burke for that year's "Best Austin Talk Radio Host" poll, as voted by The Austin Chronicle readers.
Later that year, he was fired from KJFK-FM for refusing to broaden his topics. His views were making the show hard to sell to advertisers, according to the station's operations manager. Jones stated: "It was purely political, and it came down from on high. I was told 11 weeks ago to lay off Clinton to lay off all these politicians, to not talk about rebuilding the church, to stop bashing the Marines, A to Z". He began spreading his show by Internet connection from his home.
2000
In early 2000, Jones was one of seven Republican candidates for state representative in Texas House District 48, an open swing district based in Austin, Texas.
Jones stated that he was running "to be a watchdog on the inside" but withdrew from the race after a couple of weeks. In July, a group of Austin Community Access Center (ACAC) programmers claimed that Jones used legal proceedings and ACAC policy to intimidate them or get their shows thrown off the air.
2001
In 2001, his show was syndicated on approximately 100 stations.
After the 9/11 attack, Jones began to speak of a conspiracy by the Bush administration as being behind the attack, which caused a number of the stations that had previously carried him to drop his program, according to Will Bunch.
2006
On June 8, 2006, while on his way to cover a meeting of the Bilderberg group in Ottawa, Jones was stopped and detained at the Ottawa airport by Canadian authorities who confiscated his passport, camera equipment, and most of his belongings.
He was later allowed to enter Canada lawfully. Jones said about the reason for his immigration hold, "I want to say, on the record, it takes two to tango. I could have handled it better."
2007
On September 8, 2007, he was arrested while protesting at 6th Avenue and 48th Street in New York City.
He was charged with operating a bullhorn without a permit. Two others were also cited for disorderly conduct when his group crashed a live television show featuring Geraldo Rivera. In an article one of Jones's fellow protesters said, "It was... guerrilla information warfare." The Alex Jones Show is broadcast nationally by the Genesis Communications Network to more than 90 AM and FM radio stations in the United States, including WWCR, a shortwave station. The Sunday show also airs on KLBJ. In 2010, the show attracted around 2 million listeners each week. According to journalist Will Bunch, a senior fellow at Media Matters for America, the show has a demographic heavier in younger viewers than other conservative pundits due to Jones's "highly conspiratorial tone and Web-oriented approach". Bunch has also stated that Jones "feeds on the deepest paranoia".
2011
According to Alexander Zaitchik of Rolling Stone magazine, in 2011 he had a larger on-line audience than Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh combined.
Jones is the operator of several websites (such as infowars.com and prisonplanet.com) centered on news and information about civil liberties issues, global government and a wide variety of current events topics. Mainstream sources have described Jones as a conservative, a right-wing conspiracy theorist, a libertarian and an outlet for pro-Russian propaganda. However Jones describes himself as a libertarian and denies being a right-winger. He supports Donald Trump and has consistently denounced Hillary Clinton. He has called himself a libertarian, paleoconservative, and an "aggressive constitutionalist." Following the Republican National Convention, Jones and Roger Stone began plotting the removal of Ted Cruz from his Senate seat in 2018 via potential challengers Katrina Pierson and Dan Patrick Jones is a Christian and expresses high regard for the Bible, often citing its more prophetic books: "I just want to try to be a pure and virtuous person. I want to try to transcend my flesh and be the true leader that we're all meant to be. I feel the spirit of the Creator and it embraces me with chills."
Jones was in a "media crossfire" in 2011, which included criticism by Rush Limbaugh, when the news spread that Jared Lee Loughner, the perpetrator of the 2011 Tucson shooting, had been "a fan" of the 9/11 conspiracy film Loose Change of which Jones had been an executive producer.
2013
In January 2013, Jones was invited to speak on Piers Morgan's show after promoting an online petition to deport Morgan because of his support of gun control laws.
The interview turned into "a one-person shoutfest, as Jones riffed about guns, oppressive government, the flag, his ancestors' role in Texan independence, and what flag Morgan would have on his tights if they wrestled." The event drew widespread coverage, and according to The Huffington Post, Morgan and others such as Glenn Beck "agreed that Jones was a terrible spokesman for gun rights." Jones's appearance on the show was a top trending Twitter topic the following morning.
On June 9, 2013, Jones appeared as a guest on the BBC's television show Sunday Politics.
During a discussion about conspiracy theories surrounding the Bilderberg Group meetings with presenter Andrew Neil and journalist David Aaronovitch, a critic of such theories, Aaronovitch implied that they either do not exist or that Jones is a part of them himself. Jones began shouting and interrupting, and Andrew Neil ended the interview, describing Jones as "an idiot" and "the worst person I've ever interviewed." According to Neil on Twitter, Jones was still shouting until he knew that he was off-air.
2016
During the 2016 presidential campaign Jones was attacked by Hillary Clinton by name in a speech in Nevada, after which Jones accused Clinton of lying about his stance on the Sandy Hook shooting.
