In a bit of schtick and bravado, Alex Jones and Roger Stone crashed the Young Turks’ RNC coverage. The theater here to cue on is Jones accusing Young Turks of being Saudi-backed. Indeed, Muslim demonization seems to be very much what Jones is about now days, especially since he has become a Trump operative. He is pushing the Saudi 28-page narrative as well.
There have been rumors and innuendos about Jewish influence on Jones for a while now. He is regularly queried about gate-keeping for Zionists by loyal listeners.
Here are the facts as TNN has been able to confirm. One is that his ex-wife (divorced last year) and mother to his children is Jewish. Here, on Howard Stern, Jones categorically states his wife at the time is half Jewish on her mother’s side.
The tell about Jones being a gatekeeper or misdirection agent is in his behavior. Here is his scrapping the bottom interview with Donald Trump where he fails to counter Trump’s assertion that “radical Muslims” were in New Jersey celebrating the explosion of the Twin Towers on 9/11. To his credit, Jones is one of the original “inside job” voices. So he knows full well the New Jersey story relates the “dancing Israelis,” yet he gives voice to Trump’s deception. Background on the five dancing Israelis is in the second video.
Same claims and fact checking about Alex Jones including the Jewish influence accusation.
There is disinformation online about Jones, especially in alt-right circles. One is that his flagship radio station, KLBJ AM, in Austin, Texas, is owned by Emmis Communications, a media conglomerate based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The founder, chairman, president and CEO of Emmis is the Zionist Jew Jeffrey Smulyan. This “flagship” claim looks like exaggeration and the station dropped Jones a year and a half ago.
In reality, Jones is carried by Genesis Communications, which is not Jewish-owned.
Since 2010, his show has been broadcast on Sirius XM Radio. The chairman of Sirius XM Radio is (((Eddy Hartenstein))). The CEO of Sirius XM Radio is the (((Mel Karmazin))), and the president is the (((Scott Greenstein))). Of the six executive officers, five are Jews. These people could nix Jones’ deal in a heartbeat and his reach would be greatly diminished.
It is claimed that Jones employs a Jewish attorney named Elizabeth Morgan, who is also employed by Holly Lev Bronfman, the sister of Edgar Bronfman, Jr. The Bronfman family is one of the wealthiest and most influential Jewish Zionist families in North America. This is hard to verify and using Jewish lawyers, who tend to be effective, is hardly a federal case. However, if true, an introduction and connection to the Bronfmans is a possibility and another matter all together. The background on Edgar Bronfman, Sr. is here.
Putting the pieces all together, TNN speculates that at some point Jones may have had the “Bronfman conversation.” The Bronfman treatment has been well documented elsewhere, including in Michael Collin Piper’s highly recommended book “Judas Goat” [pdf here]. Bronfman and associates will attempt to buy influence and put leashes on so-called right-wing and alt-right figures as well as black and leftist spokespeople. The “Bronfman conversation” and the way it functions is laid out in classic detail by Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan in this eye-opening speech to his congregation.
Verdict: Balancing this is Jones’ criticism of Jewish organizations such as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which he calls “Mafia-like.” He frequently unloads on George Soros. He can be hard on Christian Zionist fundamentalists. In the past, he’s been a loud voice against the police state, one of the best. He interviewed David Duke, during which he went into a rare fetal position and in many respects had his head handed to him. Was it all a deliberate act?
In sum, Jones has value to the new nationalist and the America First movement. It takes courage to do what he does and taking out some insurance might be necessary to survive. Generally, Jones acts more like a gatekeeper than controlled opposition, much in the manner of Noam Chomsky in the progressive wing. But he now has access and clout with he faux-nationalist Trump campaign, which may go to his head. More frequently he pushes questionable aspects of the Trump narrative. TNN doesn’t go so far as to question his sincerity, but we think he will be proven wrong.
