Alex Jones On HuffPost Live: 'YOU'RE IN DANGER! YOU'RE IN DANGER!' (VIDEO)

“The book Alex held up "Ecoscience" was written by John P. Holdren, the former White House Science Advisor.

In this book, (which you can probably find at your local library) Holdren describes many ways in which he wants to increase death rates, and decrease birth rates in order to reduce the global population to 30 million people.

One of these ways was to put toxic chemicals in the water supply.

There are other such genocidal methods described in that book by White House Science Advisor, John P. Holdren.

You can confirm that yourself.

Maybe you should do some investigation and critical thinking before you attack someone like Alex Jones.

You really are in a trance, and he is trying to wake you up.”

“Did you not here what Jones was saying the whole time?

The U.K (where there is no guns) has the highest violent crime rate in Europe. It has a much higher violent crime rate than the United States.

It does have less gun deaths, but has a higher OVERALL violent crime rate.

Piers Morgan knew this, and was trying to force Jones to answer a question about who has a higher gun crime rate, so that it would sound "low". Jones was pointing out that violent crime is much higher in the U.K than the United States.

Alex Jones knew what he was trying to do, and would not fall for it.

Switzerland (the only country in Europe where there is guns) has the lowest gun crime rate in Europe.

75% of gun deaths in the United States are gang related. Meaning they get them from the black market, not from gun shops.

England has FAR fewer gangs, to the point that it is almost a joke compared to the United States. Therefore they have a lower gun crime rate.

They do have a higher violent crime rate thought, because nobody can defend themselves.”

“Welcome! We haven't had a 9/11 conspiracy theorist post for a long time, and they are some of my favorites! They spend tons of time analyzing and drawing and all that other engineering stuff. Their sites are complex and very extensive, they must spend hours and hours on it, proving that Cheney and Bush brought down the Towers. It even attempts to destroy the old adage about secrets, because they explain how about a thousand people were sworn to secrecy. It is all quite interesting.”

“Listen, there are hundreds and hundreds and hundreds more very solid, reproducible, scientific studies. Over ten thousand papers have been published in russia alone. Many of this is in that book. If you have never seen those studies that is unfortunate.

You should really ask yourself why these things are immediately written off, and ridiculed from the get go by the "scientific community". Many scientists do not agree with the official religion, based on theories filled with holes and anomalies. They go along with the party line to save their reputation. Although several have spoken out. Mainstream scientific dogma is not what you think it is.”

Todd513 on Sep 2, 2011 at 16:23:25

“Many of these things are immediately written off and ridiculed by the scientific community because these things are quite literally ridiculous. Consider Luc Montagnier's supposed demonstration of "DNA teleportation." It is an utterly ridiculous claim. Apparently "some of the hydrogen and oxygen molecules in the tube with pure, sterile water transformed into DNA." How is this even possible? We are told hydrogen and oxygen atoms re-arrange to form DNA (which contains hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and phosphorus atoms). Where are the nitrogen and phosphorus atoms coming from? This violates basic conservation laws. Believing this non-sense requires one to jettison virtually everything that is known about chemistry and physics.

Very rarely does peer review result in the sensorship of ideas that htreaten the scientific/governmental/corporate establishment. Far more often it filters out ridiculous things because they are simply put very poor science. I would suggest that so-called scientists who feel that they have to go along with the party line to save their reputations aren't very serious or rigorous scientists anyway.”

“Well, every single thing he mentions and alot more can and has been verified. You would only know that if you look though. You seem to think people here are just beleiving all of this without question.”

Michael Deese on Aug 28, 2011 at 12:05:01

“Thank you Thaddeus, but I can speak for myself.

A lot of the things he mentions are unfalsifiable and therefore can't be tested. If something can't be tested, it can't be verified.

When he does talk about "scientists", he's either talking about people who don't have their work peer-reviewed, or he's just making stuff up. Sir Edmund Hoyle was not the co-discove­rer of DNA. He was the author of Hoyle's Guide a book about card games.

And you are right, I do believe people here are just believing all of this without question... or at least without enough good questions.

“You must understand that the conclusions of the things David cites is what this guy here finds objectionable. He takes it as a personal threat to the solidity of his perception of reality. What he doesn't realize is that if he were able to talk to scientists working in secret Above Black projects that they would listen to what David has to say and go, "Yes, of course....but we're even way beyond that now....if only we could tell the larger scientific community." These people don't realize how much mindblowing science is Above Top Secret and higher. As former Lockheed Skunk Works CEO Ben Rich said during his deathbed confessions, “We already have the means to travel among the stars, but these technologies are locked up in black projects and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity….. anything you can imagine we already know how to do.””

“I was kidding....I tossed out a flippant comment without really considering how my comment might be taken by those who are very passionate about their belief in UFO's and might become offended by my "denial".

It's not hugely important to me to believe or not believe, which is why I haven't reached a firm point in said belief..mostly because the stories and evidence appear to me to be inconclusive either way, therefore I have not reached a conclusion one way or another.

My apologies to those avid UFO believers...as I said to the other respondent, I don't have a firm belief one way or another, although I have read a couple of books and have some admittedly limited information about the "evidence" that UFO's have visited our planet....which is precisely why I "don't get off" believing one way or another.

Hope this clarification helps.”

“You seem to think that you have this great intellegence and understanding of words and terms that other people just cannot understand. That you are more "rational" and "logical" than everyone else, and you onviously know so much more about science than people here. I know, it feels good to do that. In fact, people get a little opiate rush in thier brain when they do. Maybe you should actually read the book and read the studies with an unbiased and open minded perspective, before you sit and bash it with smaug ingorant sarcasm and supeiriority.”

MorallySuperiorAtheist on Aug 26, 2011 at 23:22:06

“Your eloquence aside, it isn't a question of feeling superior. In fact, scientific principles are very simple. Science and scientific method is a rulebook, of sorts, and charlatans and mountebanks have a tradition of obfuscating fact with conjecture. The two exist independently within the rulebook. People whose brains cannot think critically are willing victims of these people when flights of fancy are presented as "scientifically proven". You are not alone. The vast majority of the world's population believes in an invisible cloud-being (a deity). What we WISH to exist is different from what actually does. Sorry, but that is the nature of the world.”

“The informatio­n and facts regarding the ufo and ET presence here on earth is vast and unending.

If one ufo sighting is real.

One alien abduction is real

One government whistle blower is telling the truth (there are hundreds, possibly close to 1000 at this point ready to testify in front of congress)

If one perfectly geometric, highly intricate crop circle that shows up almost immediatel­y with no crops broken, only bent, is real

One cattle mutilation is real (Ive seen this)

Any of the acrchaeolo­gical evidence is real (history channels' Ancient Aliens series is great, as well as a vast amount of books and websites on this subject)

One channeled document is real

Then we are not alone and we are being visited. That is something we need to take seriously.

To completely deny all of that is totally illogical, irrational, and unreasonable”

“Crop circles are really easy to make and kind of fun.

Ever notice how easily and quickly you can draw a perfect circle with a compass? All you need is some rope, a steel post, and some wide, wooden boards.

If you plan the design in advance and get enough people involved, do can do amazingly intricate designs in a surprisingly short period of time.

Crop octagons and pentagons, now that's a different story.”
