    Alex Jones and “the Aurora Theater Shooting Was A Staged Event” conspiracy

    Like anyone else, I love a good conspiracy theory. Here’s one that isn’t: Alex “Crazy for a Profit” Jones is arguing that the Aurora Theater Shooting was a “staged event.” By the way, I would be shocked if Alex Jones was not on the NRA’s payroll (see images below).

    In his spectacular midway-barker style, Jones “connects the dots” for us between James Holmes and the theater shooting to the upcoming UN Arms Treaty Conference, Fast and Furious, the Uni-bomber, Jared Loughner, Columbine, MK ULTRA, the “Globalist Command Center (the alternate US capital) in Denver / Colorado Springs, President Obama and the Democrats and, naturally, the opening of the actual Batman movie itself.

    Of course, he calls this “analyzing” the event.

    In Alex Jones’ “analysis”, the real victim here is James Holmes — your typical “patsy” who was drugged up and duped to take the fall. This is MK ULTRA stuff, people! Just like Jared Loughner in Arizona, Jones says.

    What really happened in that movie theater? Well, some “black-ops” masked operator came into the theater and did the shooting (JUST LIKE COLUMBINE!). Then James Holmes was drugged with “amnesiacs” (since he wasn’t killed immediately, LIKE WITH COLUMBINE) so he would then take the blame. BOOM. Get it? Where’s your God now, sheeple?

    I guess Holmes must have been covertly drugged with “PCP and LSD” practically 24/7 over the past few months while he ordered and received the almost 100 shipments that contained his 6,000 rounds of ammo, body armor, and explosive materials. It all makes sense now. No wonder he wasn’t doing well at school.

    And by the way, what’s this upcoming evil librul commie event where they’re comin’ fer our guns?

    NRA Kicks Off UN Arms Treaty Conference With Fearmongering: …Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has also said that treaty is “opportunity to promote the same high standards for the entire international community that the United States and other responsible arms exporters already have in place to ensure that weaponry is transferred for legitimate purposes.” A senior policy advisor to the humanitarian organization Oxfam America has also pushed back against claims that the treaty has the nefarious purpose of interfering with domestic law: “No government is discussing a treaty that would ever impact the right to bear arms, nor require regulation of domestic sales of arms,” said Scott Stedjan, a senior policy adviser at the relief group Oxfam America. “This is totally about international transfer of arms so that they don’t go to human rights abusers.”

    Those words from their mouths are code for globalist takeover. They are so totally compiling our names in their secret computer database for firearm confiscation AND for the mass roundup of the real ‘Mericans into FEMA camps.  Don’t be fooled, people: buy gold, more guns, and survival seeds now. ASAP.

On a related note, this was overheard at a Tea Party rally this weekend: Ozark Tea Party board member Inge Marler considers this joke an “ice breaker:”
A black kid asks his mom, ‘Mama, what’s a democracy?’‘Well, son, that be when white folks work every day so us po’ folks can get all our benefits.’‘But mama, don’t the white folk get mad about that?’‘They sho do, son. They sho do. And that’s called racism.’
After her joke was reported, Marler told the Baxter Bulletin she’d stop using it. Audio of the speech can be heard here.
Just for the record: More white people are on welfare than black people.

    OBAMA LIED! Except — wait, hang on, anyone who reads Dreams From My Father starts with this disclaimer. ”For the sake of compression, some of the characters that appear are composites of people I’ve known, and some events appear out of precise chronology. With the exception of my family and a handful of public figures, the names of most characters have been changed for the sake of their privacy.” This has been known for years. Obama’s memoir has stymied reporters because characters who might have some insights appear in composite form. The most famous of them, up to now, was a guy named “Ray,” who gets all of Dreams’s “angry black dude” lines. Is it kosher for a future president to write like this and then be cagey about who was who? Interesting discussion! But in 2012, you can’t “admit” something you told book-buyers in 1995. – Obama Girlfriend Trutherism
DEEP THOUGHT: Pretty sure “so old girlfriends don’t dish on me in national magazines” is reason enough to not want to be president. – Duncan Black
LESS DEEP THOUGHT: Pretty sure “so national magazines can’t find your old girlfriends” is reason enough to make them composite characters in your memoirs. — Me

Why are Fox “News” viewers so misinformed? Is it them, or is it Fox?
So you’re a misinformed Fox “News” viewer — but why are you so misinformed? Turns out, it’s a little bit you (because you’re attracted to a source like Fox in the first place) and it’s a little bit of Fox itself — a political operation which pretends to be a news channel, purposely misleading it’s base viewers, telling you what you want to hear but not necessarily what you should know. In other words, you’re in your own little world of paranoia and incorrect beliefs because you like that world. 

The Science of Fox News: Why Its Viewers are the Most Misinformed – Authoritarian people have a stronger emotional need for an outlet like Fox, where they can find affirmation and escape factual challenges to their beliefs.
[…] When are people most likely to seek out self-affirming information? Hart found that they’re most vulnerable to selective exposure if they have defensive goals—for instance, being highly committed to a preexisting view, and especially a view that is tied to a person’s core values. Another defensive motivation identified in Hart’s study was closed-mindedness, which makes a great deal of sense. It is probably part of the definition of being closed-minded, or dogmatic, that you prefer to consume information that agrees with what you already believe.
So who’s closed-minded? Multiple studies have shown that political conservatives—e.g., Fox viewers–tend to have a higher need for closure. Indeed, this includes a group called right-wing authoritarians, who are increasingly prevalent in the Republican Party. This suggests they should also be more likely to select themselves into belief-affirming information streams, like Fox News or right-wing talk radio or the Drudge Report. Indeed, a number of research results support this idea.
[…] PIPA’s study of misinformation in the 2010 election didn’t just show that Fox News viewers were more misinformed than viewers of other channels. It also showed that watching more Fox made believing in nine separate political misperceptions morelikely. And that was a unique effect, unlike any observed with the other news channels that were studied. “With all of the other media outlets, the more exposed you were, the less likely you were to have misinformation,” explains PIPA’s director, political psychologist Steven Kull. “While with Fox, the more exposure you had, in most cases, the more misinformation you had. And that is really, in a way, the most powerful factor, because it strongly suggests they were actually getting the information from Fox.”
Indeed, this effect was even present in non-Republicans–another indicator that Fox is probably its cause. As Kull explains, “even if you’re a liberal Democrat, you are affected by the station.” If you watched Fox, you were more likely to believe the nine falsehoods, regardless of your political party affiliation.
[…] the Fox “effect” probably occurs both because the station churns out falsehoods that conservatives readily accept—falsehoods that may even seem convincing to some liberals on occasion—but also because conservatives are overwhelmingly inclined to choose to watch Fox to begin with.
At the same time, it’s important to note that they’re also disinclined to watch anything else… Continue reading…

It’s like a perpetual feedback loop of happy, Orwellian horseshit: Fox is anything but ‘fair and balanced,’ but as long as they tell you that’s what they are, you get to pretend that’s a valid description of your chosen news source.
If you’re happy knowing that about yourself, great. Just don’t be surprised or offended when your friends and loved ones won’t discuss issues with you anymore, or when they make the circling motion with their finger on the side of their head. As Paul Harvey would say, now you know the rest of the story.

    Gingrich’s chickens are coming home to roost: Adios, Newt →

    Newt Gingrich’s campaign admitted Wednesday that the former Speaker had not provided ABC News “witnesses” that would undermine his former wife Marianne’s claims that he had requested an open relationship, despite Gingrich having claimed to have done so in his widely praised debate performance last Thursday. — Gingrich campaign admits it provided no ‘witnesses’ to refute ex-wife’s claims

    via: thedailywhat:

    Lies Newt Gingrich Told Me of the Day: John King, not one to let things go, has successfully managed to compel the Gingrich campaign to admit that the GOP presidential candidate was “wrong” when he claimed that his staff offered up witnesses to debunk the claims made by his ex-wife on ABC’s NightlineWatch video:

    Interesting! What else has Newt lied about, I wonder… maybe his relationship with Saint Reagan?

    via: afternoonsnoozebutton:

    Gingrich: “I helped Governor Reagan become President Reagan”…”I developed supply side economics in the 1970’s”

    (Also, Gingrich also possibly discovered electricity and formed man in his own image.)

    Uh, oh. Drudge alert!

Matt Drudge is emo over Sarah Palin’s news 
Siren and everything.
The half-term, former governor says she’s not running for president in 2012.
However, she does want her teafans to continue donating money and  buying her books, so she “leaves the door open” for a future run for  office.
It’s going to be difficult not to ask the Teaparty, “How’d all that Quitty, Screechy stuff work out for ya?”

    Roundup: RWNJ Faux Outrageous Outrage of the Day — Jim Hoffa Jr. and Union Thuggery!
TBogg: Pearls Were Clutched. Sphincters Were Clenched –  Jimmy Hoffa Jr. makes reference to “son’s-of-bitches” and immediately  teabaggers and Republicans and conservatives and rightwing bloggers  think he’s speaking specifically about them (guilt? … deeply guarded  family secret?  …  mom really was a bitch?) and so they get the vapors  and now they are super totally  not going to vote for the black guy.

Oh noes! Not Breitbartoacalypse II?
TPM: No regrets — On calling Republican members of Congress “sons of bitches” in a speech on Monday, Teamsters President James Hoffa tells TPM he would say it all over again.
All fun aside, this is the REAL issue — doctored video and lies:
MMFA – Matt Gertz: Fox Doctors Hoffa Speech To Fabricate Call For Violence — Right-wing bloggers misled by dishonest Fox News video editing are  attacking Teamsters President James Hoffa, Jr. for supposedly urging  violence against Tea Party activists during a Labor Day speech.  Conservatives are also attacking President Obama, who appeared at the  event, for “sanctioning violence against fellow Americans” by failing to  denounce Hoffa. But fuller context included in other Fox segments makes  clear that Hoffa wasn’t calling for violence but was actually urging  the crowd to vote out Republican members of Congress.
Charles Johnson: Fox News Deceptively Edits Video to Smear Teamsters Pres. Hoffa — Absolutely blatant lying from Fox — Fox News aired a flat-out dishonest, edited version of Hoffa’s  speech, deliberately doctored to remove a crucial point and make it look  as though Hoffa was calling for violence and civil war.
See Fox “News” edited clip and ABC News unedited clip…
An actual, unedited transcript of Hoffa’s remarks:

We got to keep an eye on the battle that  we face: The war on workers. And you see it everywhere, it is the Tea  Party. And you know, there is only one way to beat and win that war. The  one thing about working people is we like a good fight. And you know  what? They’ve got a war, they got a war with us and there’s only going  to be one winner. It’s going to be the workers of Michigan, and America.  We’re going to win that war.
President Obama, this is your army. We are  ready to march. AndPresident Obama, we want one thing: jobs, jobs,  jobs… That’s what we’re going to tell him. He’s gonna be … and when he  sees what we’re doing here, he will be inspired. But he needs help. And  you know what? Everybody here’s got to vote. If we go  back, and we keep the eye on the prize, let’s take these son of a  bitches out and give America back to an America where we belong.

Hoffa was talking about VOTING OUT the sons of bitches? Oh, my. Obama has a responsibility to tell Hoffa he owes a quarter to the cuss jar – but THAT’S ABOUT IT.
