    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Sorry, but I do not consider Alex Jones the Guru on much of anything. Some of the things he says may be correct, but I do not look to him for info. What about the one thing he does not speak of?

I agree. Alex Jones is psyops. Some of what he says is true, because that is how psyops is successful. By playing on true information and disinformation.

But, it's still a part of the component of: "Pay attention to my right, while I move with my left."

Ultimately irrelevant whether he is psyops or not. I thank the lying, deceitful, omissions of mainstream everyday for elucidating the appropriate contrast that leads to truth... whether it's relative or absolute.

+1. These criticisms about AJ seem hollow and disingenuous.


I just got home from running errands.  During that time I saw two homeless guys - one I bought shoes for and another I bought food for.  Is this going to change the world?  Fuck and no.

Without media like ZH and AJ, I doubt I'd be at this place in life: I'd be just another ass-clown, thinking I was making it in this system.  Instead, thanks to media like this, I'm now an ass-clown who understands how corrupt this system is, and sees many people hurting as a result of it.


We all have the power to change things for the better.  Whatever you find most egregious about what's going on in the world, you can do your small part to make a change.

Dark, sad to report that the I in BRIC is now sadly in the love-death grip of Good Old Uncle Sam on one side and Dear Israel on the other. Largest arms importer in the world. India is one giant puppet. We will do nothing to displease our masters.

It will be the axis of the "No dollar". Whether that makes them 'axis of evil' is a question of determining who is the pot and who is the kettle...before the New Slanging Match begins...of 'Pot' calling 'Kettle' black. Shades of Pol Pot in the air...

Barry Obama Soetoro told the world that we are going in to Libya to stop a tyrannical government from killing civilians and we are accomplishing this goal by killing the civilians first before their government can get to them. A plan this brilliant can only be hatched by the mind of The Bernank!

"I am still trying to determine the specific benefactors of all the destabalization."


Easy...the current regimes are charging us too much for that precious oil...we need new ones in there who will charge us less.  Or, as an excuse to just "take it all away".  The rabble will be easier to defend the oil facilities than a "government".  Muslims have overcharged us and held the oil over us for too long.  Maybe Obama was placed into the presidency, given the "peace prize" as a distraction...lull the Muzzies into thinking THEY were winning?

Could it be that "beneficiaries" or the phrase "cui bono" (to whose benefit) is meant here rather than "benefactors" (those who performs a good deed). Sorry to be pedantic.

Interesting to see the US spend billions of dollars to get rid of a dictator, when a sniper and a 42 cents bullet can do the job.

No accident. It is a mystery of numerology wrapped in a riddle. Only those who choose to see it can see it.  There is power in the spiritual darkness for those who want it and search for it as it has been for thousands of years in the mystery schools. Somewhere in some old European castle they toasted lucifer, the light bearer,  and drank human blood last night at midnight to celebrate their new war.  No way you say?  I believe it  happens but only in the highest echelons of power in this world.
