Forty-Five Failed Alex Jones Predictions

Bank runs in February 2009. 9/11-scale terror attacks in 2010. 50% of the U.S. population will be killed in a bio-weapons attack in 2009. 16 year-old soldiers will enforce nationwide martial law by 2012. A major terror attack will occur in the U.S. by the end of summer 2009 (oh, and it’s a false flag). The U.S. will go to war with Russia in 2009. Texas stores are being looted and National Guard troops are moving into Austin right this minute (December 31, 1999). The UN will announce the presence of ET intelligence during 2009 to stage a NWO takeover. The U.S. dollar will be devalued by 50% by 2012.

If you’re Alex Jones, you’re used to being wrong. But that doesn’t stop his wild-eyed fans from listening – there’s always another edge-of-your-seat, apocalyptic prediction coming down the pipeline, after all. In this highly entertaining mash-up, Alex Jones Clips runs down 45 of the most wild, failed Alex Jones predictions.

    Direct anyone who thinks Jones predicted the Boston bombings to this video.

    Throw enough shit and eventually some of it will stick!

    ALL MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND OPINIONS ARE FALSE AND ALL NON-MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND OPINIONS ARE TRUE

    • Juan

      Of course, thanks for clearing that up for me

    • http://www.facebook.com/rogeh.raffoul Rogeh Raffoul

      You cannot say that ALL NON-MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND OPINIONS ARE TRUE, some of them severely mis-inform and distort the truth which adds more insult to injury.. Some of them are probably even funded and backed by organizations and governments to intentionally serve as non-mainstream misinformation agents.
      The problem is most people will agree to what feels good or appealing to them; rather than rely on evidence or facts which in most cases are not provided.
      This is the reason why conspiracy theorists which, merely come up with assumptions and predictions have a huge following. This is also why mainstream propaganda also works just fine.

  • Dingbert

    There are only two talking heads who have been remotely accurate in their predictions:

    1) Gerald Celente (Jones style pessimism porn, but slightly more accurate)

    2) Paul Krugman (https://www.hamilton.edu/documents/An-Analysis-of-the-Accuracy-of-Forecasts-in-the-Political-Media.pdf)

    • MT

      Listen to Max Keiser, stay away from that idiot Krugman.

    • The Floorguy

      Ron Paul knew what was going to happen before Bush 41
      How is that for predictions? LOL Ya the nutty guy.

  • BuzzCoastin

    You know there’s something’s happening but you don’t know what it is
    Do you Mr. Jones?

    • The Well Dressed Man

      You have many contacts among the lumberjacks who give you facts when someone attacks your imagination.

      • BuzzCoastin

        You hand in your ticket
        And you go watch the geek
        Who immediately walks up to you
        When he hears you speak
        And says, “How does it feel
        To be such a freak ?”
        And you say, “Impossible”
        As he hands you a bone.

    thats the pASt bro we can only go forward so the truth has cleared the smoking mirrors and its about us not alex jones as he aint the only one that will reveal this booming mistery god bless you

    • Juan

      Hm, “smoking mirrors;” thanks for that. It will be added to my lexicon:)

      • Calypso_1

        Is that similar to smoking glass?

        • Heath

          I thought the glass was the vessel and crystal was the soul..

          • Calypso_1

            The crystal is a transition state refactor for catalysis of torodial double layer vortex dynamics within the soul.

          • Juan

            I knew that.

          • Calypso_1

            Can you consciously modulate the crystal’s symmetries, projections and rectifications?

    • Gabriel D. Roberts

      Thank you for your kind words, Juan.

  • jiggawutt

    You forgot to mention that none of those things happened because he said they would occur and the ‘NWO’ got cold feet because the big scary InfoWars machine has them rattling in their boots…. according to him, at any rate.

  • jiggawutt

    Tonight, he goes on the air to deny any culpability in the Boston bombing. Watch as he squirms with unbridled anger and places the blame on incoherently described conspiracy theories.

  • DrDavidKelly

    At least he was right about The Rapture.

  • Aipeed Teaitchse

    I don’t agree with every thing any body says and I expect the same in return. Nevertheless, I do know that historically large groups of people have been controlled by small groups of people via the strategy of divide and conquer. The MSM attacks Alex Jones knowing the effect will be three-fold:

    1) People who have never heard of him (assuming they pay attention to MSM sources on any level) will dismiss him

    2) People that think for themselves will be conflicted – many will condemn him for one reason or another while many others will defend him. It’s a situation that can be exploited very easily from many angles. ex) “Infowars = COINTELPRO” (good one)

    3) While Alex Jones and whatever percentage of Americans actually pay attention to important events and have the capacity to think critically feel pitted against one another, and the Boston event is still the hot story of the week, CISPA can be voted on without much of a fight – not nearly as much as last year.

    Don’t expect Obama to veto it, or any future administration to undo the damage.
    Does Alex Jones get overzealous? You bet. Is he right all the time? Who is? Did he predict a false flag attack using planes that would be blamed on Osama bin Laden that could possibly target the WTC? Look it up. Don’t take anyone’s word for anything. Would more people believe the official version of the WTC OKC and 7/7 events if he wasn’t laying out the facts and irregularities? Would people have believed what happens every year at Bohemian Grove if he hadn’t gone in there and recorded it? Did he ask Deborah Jean Palfrey the DC Madam if she planned to commit suicide a week before she allegedly did to hear her say “no I don’t…I plan on going into court and exposing the government in ways I don’t think they want me to expose them.” Does he insist that governments have a long history of attacking their own people (including economically and chemically), blaming the attack on some random loners, then utilizing it as a rationale to take away people’s rights and/or enhance their own power? Has he vehemently defended the bill of rights as it’s been dismantled over the past 12 years as a full-time job? Was the MSM largely ignoring AJ until his ratings were steadily surpassing cable news programs? Is it in any way reflecting the pattern of how they ignored Ron Paul until his grassroots support was undeniable, forcing them to go on the attack and portray him as a right-wing kook? Judge for yourself.

    All I know is he’s trying. I also know he encourages people to do their own research and get passionate about the issues they think are important, not to just blindly hang on his every word. And he makes all his DVDs freely available on youtube for what it’s worth. While we’re distracted and bickering about who’s right and who’s wrong, the powers that be are taking away the liberty the people that came before us fought for tooth and nail. So the question isn’t whether Alex Jones opinion is relevant, the real question is what have you done? Support free speech whether you agree with what another person is saying or not and figure out what really matters before it’s too late.

    • sveltesvengali

      Glad to see you encourage a healthy amount of individualism while still saying that the most basic, general or broad overview of what Alex Jones contends probably holds some water (case in point, when he tells Piers Morgan that certain elements of the military-industrial complex manipulate public interests for their own agenda [eg. Gulf of Tonkin], it seems pretty indisputable when you review the evidence).

      It’s in the finer points that he turns into a loony, unreasonable conspiracy theorist who overcontextualizes the issues and projects his own chosen boogeyman as being behind every “NWO shill” he labels in every other broadcast (eg. Noam Chomsky, who actually agreed with almost everything he was saying save for one minor discrepancy over gun control statistics) and his only way of determining who’s right is to default to seeing who screams the loudest (and, I must admit, in a solid screaming contest to see who has the biggest inadequacies, Jones wins almost every freakin’ time, even against the most unreasonable idiots).

    • Aipeed Teaitchse

      (Correction: That DC Madam quote was taken from about 10 months prior, then she reiterated a similar statement about 2 months before she died. Interestingly the alleged suicide note referred to the situation as “a modern day lynching”)

      • Ittabena

        I do not remember Alex predicting 911 in any form, but I do remember William Cooper doing so. You know you should really go on ATS and spew this crap about AJ. They will hand you your hat in about fifteen seconds. We are a little gentler here, thank God.

        • eric82

          Uh … no.

          On June 24, 2001, CNN aired a report that said OBL was “planning a major attack on U.S. interests in the next 2 weeks.” On his June 28, 2001 show, Cooper said OBL would stage an attack on the U.S. “by the end of summer.” CooperTroopers – after his death – ignored the CNN story and elevated Cooper’s line to proof of prophecy. But, just like Alex Jones, Cooper would simply regurgitate what the MSM he hated so much reported, and then add some sinister sounding synthesizer music to reel in the loons.

          • Ittabena

            Nice, thanks for the clarification.

    • Ittabena

      I wrote this reply to you last time we talked about Alex Jones. However, something in the website would not allow me to post it. So, I picked another Jonesie farther down the line of comments and posted it there. In fact i actually typed it up four different times, three to you (none of which would post) and once to the other poster.

      With apologies to Matt Staggs if I am breaking a rule here, how about we try it again?

      “I know you think that you have reached the bottom of the rabbit hole with
      Alex. That is what you are supposed to think. You have not. It is
      much deeper and scarier than you could ever imagine.

      Not that Jones doesn’t tell some truth, but if you follow the stories
      back to their source you will see the spin and sensationalism he is
      applying to very many stories. As a radio talk show host Alex lives or
      dies by his popularity, this is merely a fact that no one can change.
      DVDs do not sell themselves.

      However, releasing some of the truth to get trust is an old
      Cointelpro trick right out of the handbook. So is infiltration as was
      done to the protest/radical groups of the 60s and 70s. The tactic
      worked well, do you really think they would abandon it? Wouldn’t they,
      over time, work towards refining and improving this technique? And
      wouldn’t a great improvement be to put a false leader up, albeit a
      leader who leads nowhere?

      Every message that a Congressman gets is considered to represent 1300
      people who think the same way and will not make contact. This would be
      a tactic that Alex could employ to bring about some of the changes he
      advocates so loudly and venomously. But does he? Does he do anything to
      help us bring about the change that we need? Once in a blue moon he
      might make a causal, passing reference to call your Congressman, but
      that’s it.

      Alex is only there to blunt the shock. He warns you what is coming
      and when it does come people are less likely to start marching as we
      used to do. You have to admit that many time he and Glen Beck appear to
      be working some sort of see-saw connected to a bellows which fans the
      flames of an issue. They are not really fighting, they are working an
      issue up to where they can continue their profits and popularity. And
      what do we do? We eat it up and chose sides as if it were Monday Night
      Football. And why not? Our whole western society is based on choosing
      up sides and keeping us factionalized, it’s all we know.

      William Cooper, Bill Hicks, Aaron Russo, even Jack Ruby, who tried to
      tell what he knew to the Supreme Court, have all died, but none from
      old age or natural causes. Alex? Well his radio show, and he, just go
      on unmolested. He claims the website gets hacked, but it always came
      right up for me when he said that. Nice house, in-ground pool in the
      backyard and he’s even gaining weight nicely.

      I’m sorry but you have been had. Alex is a human pressure relief
      valve, and see how well it works? I was fooled for a long time too, but
      something never quite added up. Eventually you will see it too. Just
      trying to help you out.”

      So there you have it. never thought I would get this one delivered, but viola!

      I found it interesting that you mentioned divide and conquer…

      • Aipeed Teaitchse

        I do my best not to spread or perpetuate negative energy but I am a reciprocal creature, as we all are by nature. I’ll try to neutralize my inner monologue here nevertheless. You seem to have skimmed my comment without reading into the broader point I was trying to make and then reposting what you put up several days ago as a reply to someone else, apparently by accident. While you accuse someone of exaggerating half truths it isn’t wise to cherry pick evidence or to use pure conjecture to back up your allegations against that same person. I saw the youtube clip you posted of spliced up sound bytes mixed together with him crashing a gun rally. It was my first time seeing that and yeah he was being an asshole there – what can I say? Does that prove everything else he’s been saying and doing for the past 15 years has been a massive counterintelligence operation? How do you know I’m not an agent when you’re using that kind of logic? How do we know you’re not for that matter? I’ll concede Glen Beck could be gaming the public like that but he mimics what AJ says then attaches a political agenda with some emotional spin. He’s never had an ounce of credibility. Also, for the record ATS delves more into the David Icke realm, which I still respect to a point, but you have to take it all with a grain of salt. So it goes with infowars, but not to that degree. Alex Jones doesn’t get into alien conspiracies the way above top secret does which lends him a little more credibility in my book.

        I’m not taking on the burden of defending every single word that comes out of everyone’s mouth or appears online. But I am pointing out it’s no coincidence the MSM is trying to link Alex Jones to terrorism and antisemitism and generally attempting to discredit everything he’s ever said with the underlying theme of internet censorship pervading the framework of their hit pieces during the same week that CISPA is up for a vote in the senate. I’m not trying to change your opinion of him or me or anyone else. I couldn’t care less about that. What matters at the moment is retaining the liberty for everyone on the internet to be able to have a voice, whether it’s a well thought out and punctuated rant, or A SLOGAN IN ALL CAPS FROM SOMEONE THAT HAS NO CLUE. Beyond that, just re-read what I typed earlier, fact check it if you’re so inclined, and realize that I’m not trying to make this agitated pot boil over, I just want people to focus on what’s important. For now, we the people of the internet have to be united against CISPA for better or worse. If and when we win that battle we can go back to bickering over baited topics like this one.

        • Ittabena

          I thought I was clear in the first and last part of this last comment I made, but I guess I was not. My above re-posted comment was never intended as a response to anything you said, either on this article or from the last. It was always intended as a response to you personally.

          I was once a Jones-ite such as yourself, though I think I was a little more “dyed in the wool” than you are. If someone said something bad about Alex to me back then, you were in for a fight, although a verbal one. But, and I noticed this at the time, all I could ever do was regurgitate things he said. Some of them true, some of them false. But that was it, there were no other weapons in my arsenal to defend AJ with. Even with that knowledge in the back of my mind, I was one of the faithful. There were some other things that bothered me like how bad a radio presence Alex portrayed and how poor he was at handling people. You have to admit he is a screamer.

          Even so, all these red flags I relegated to the back of my mind as I continued my devotion to Alex. And, several times different people would point out to me that Alex was not what he seemed, but I did not believe them. Until…

          I attended Catholic School all my life. The fact that I suffered physical abuse at the hands of the clerics who taught that such a thing was wrong and a sin, caused me to question the Catholic Church and it’s teachings. Later, after I was out of school, my best friend got me into history. After this I spent many years in the search for truth, and found that even on a global and historical scale the Catholic Church did one thing and taught the opposite. Do as we say and not as we do, sort of thing.

          Then one day I met a kindred spirit. I was deeply into Jim Marrs and had never heard of Alex, my new friend changed that for me. I spent the next three years a devoted listener, commenter on his site Infowars, and even put up my own website. This website was taken down when Go-Daddy supported the first of the internet censorship Bills.

          Occasionally, and you will know this as well, Christian Fundamentalists will get on his site and preach Armageddon and the Book of Revelations. Well, I couldn’t resist. Most of the times these folks were not Catholic, and I would even ask them if they were. If they were not, I would show them what my research had found about the Councils of Nicaea and the resulting Ecumenical Councils that edited and revised the loose scriptures of the day into the canonical Bible. I would then ask them why they were pounding so hard on a book written originally by Catholics if they were not Catholics themselves. I would then also point out that all opposing or conflicting religions of the time were then systematically killed and wiped out by this new State (Holy Roman Empire) sponsored religion.

          Every time I did this my comment was summarily cut. For a short time I thought it was a glitch. My hero Alex would never sit still for censorship. But every time I made such a post, it was cut almost immediately. Hmm?! Finally it came to me. In fact I can’t believe I had been so thick about it, being a former D.J. myself. The Christian Fundamentalists were part of Alex listener/customer base and such a challenge could not be tolerated without loss of revenue. My White Knight of inspiration had just lost much of his sheen.

          Then one day I saw the video I posted earlier. I don’t know if I mentioned it when I posted it but the woman Alex is screaming at is Catherine Bleisch, an activist from Missouri. Catherine was inspired to become an activist by Alex on the day that he released the MIAC documents. I remember this because on the day that he released these documents I called his office in Austin and asked for permission to re-post them on my site. Permission was given.

          Now I am not sure if I pointed this out when I posted this video last time, but Catherine and her fellow protestors had invited Alex to the protest as an honored speaker. They wanted him there on the podium. Instead he showed up and did what you saw. Now you can say cut and spliced and edited all you want, but it is clear that Alex is there to disrupt, and what is depicted in the video is indeed what happened. Catherine was devastated by this. Here was her inspiration attacking her.

          Are we expected to believe that there is such poor communication at this communicator’s office about such things as protests he is invited to in his own town? I can hardly believe this.

          Meanwhile the back of my mind is getting pretty cluttered by red flags. It’s getting so you can’t get through the room without stumbling over them. Then this video.

          Now my father was a DI for the USMC (strict, principled) and later became an IL State Trooper (Constitutionalist) and one of the things he always taught me is that you have to go where the evidence leads. As new evidence comes to light you MUST revise your view to include consideration of this new evidence.

          Back when I was a true believer I would receive, from time to time,
          similar messages to this one from other people. I would not believe
          them either, but they planted a seed. There were a lot of seeds planted, but I did not believe any of them. Still they were seeds.

          So what I have done here was never intended as response to anything you had to say. It was done because I am here all the time and the only time I see you post is when AJ is mentioned. I see in you, many similarities to me a few years ago, and I thought I would help someone else along a little on the path. I am paying it forward.

          I offer this seed in nothing but a helpful spirit. You may not take it that way now, but one day…

            Another seed planted…

          Then you should know better than assuming that some smear campaign is what it will take for people to discount most of what Alex Jones says. He has lost all credibility to rational, forward-thinking people because absolutely EVERYTHING that happens is somehow a government conspiracy.

          I am embarrassed I was ever a follower of this guy.

    • gustave courbet

      Well said. Take everything out there with a grain of salt, but if you’re willing to sift through the hyperbole and crazies attracted to the Infowars crew, you can glean some decent info, or at the very least some starting points for personally directed research. He gets people like Sibel Edmonds, Greg Palast, Chris Hedges, and others out to a huge number of people. Whether the listener wants to go out and do their own legwork or drink Alex’s cool aid is up to them.

    • http://www.facebook.com/jerrad.wohlleber Jerrad Wohlleber

      If Alex Jones predicted a false flag attack on the WTC, then he was wrong. Since that didn’t happen.

      • Aipeed Teaitchse

        I’m sorry to say (honestly) the official narrative defies the laws of physics according to nearly 2,000 architects and engineers. Check out ae911truth for more information. Questions will arise but the answers are out there. Do your own research.

        • http://www.facebook.com/jerrad.wohlleber Jerrad Wohlleber

          I did my own research and found that the people who told me the towers’ fall “defied physics” were lying to me. They lied to you too, but you swallowed it up.

          • Aipeed Teaitchse

            Say what you want after this, it’s the last I’ll say. Changing your mind is up to you not me, and you’re not going to change mine. Consider all the records that were destroyed of the SEC NSA CIA and FBI in wtc 7 and then take one more look at it falling in typical demolition-implosion style with no resistance at any point and how convenient it was for individuals involved that so much evidence of money laundering, gun running, narcotics, fraud, etc.. stored in there was destroyed in a matter of 9 seconds (instead of 96 as it should have taken if one floor were collapsing into the next all the way down as the official narrative claims). One more source worth checking out is patriotsquestion911.com – In both of these sources I mentioned, the people involved have absolutely nothing to gain by speaking out and in fact it would make much more sense for them not to. They’re not getting red in the face yelling ‘false flag’ or anything, and certainly not lying. They’re just analyzing facts and even though they don’t claim to have all the answers, it doesn’t stop them from asking questions. I really wish I could go back to believing the official story and if it helps you sleep at night, go on believing it yourself. Check those sources out either way.

          • http://www.facebook.com/jerrad.wohlleber Jerrad Wohlleber

            The buildings took longer than 9 seconds to fall. No, it shouldn’t have taken 96 seconds to collapse each floor.

            You believe things that are easily disproven. For Christ’s sake the videos are on YouTube! The physics equations are available for anyone with basic algebra skill.

            Again, I’ve checked those sources. They had me convinced for a bit too! That’s part of why they piss me off so much: they lied to me. They made a fool of me. Just as they made a fool of you.

    Boy, what a gloomy outlook on life. Being a listener was a painful period for me and my luck turned for shit.

      When you constantly spew vague, specious bullshit predictions, you will eventually get one right just by accident. I mean, let me predict right here and now that the US will suffer another terrorist attack. Now, if and when such an attack occurs, remember that I predicted it! I also predict that the sun might just rise again in the east!

      Never mind that the video you posted predicts a whole bunch of other things that never happened and provides no details about the terrorist attack other than the (false) assertion that the government would be behind it. You’ve proven nothing except that Alex Jones is full of shit.

      When you constantly spew vague, specious bullshit predictions, you will eventually get one right just by accident. I mean, let me predict right here and now that the US will suffer another terrorist attack. Now, if and when such an attack occurs, remember that I predicted it! I also predict that the sun might just rise again in the east!
