But a real leader brings people under his tent.Jones has alienated as many withinthe Truth Movement as outside it.by Sandeep Parwagahenrymakow.comIn the past, I rejected accusations that Jones is false opposition, a Jesuit, a Zionist shill, etc., But as I continued to watch him, I realized that some of the charges may have some validity.1 Jack Blood worked for Alex Jones for many years.

Globe Magazine has been exposing Obama’s hidden secrets over and over again. They’ve done very good work. They’ve not gotten enough credit for what they’ve done. Credit is due to them. Arpaio’s now readying to reveal Obama.
EXCLUSIVE! PPSIMMONS Interviews Pastor Terry Jones (Islam, Qurans, Obama, U.S.)………….
Prison Planet.com » DHS Source Confirms Alex Was Being Stalked… (““Bumper lock him. Make it obvious. Do whatever you can, just make sure he knows. Handle him as a hostile.” Those were the instructions reportedly given to federal agents …”)
Both before and after the appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight Monday, Alex and Infowars video producer Rob Dew knew they were being followed and that people seemed to be casing them around New York City.
In addition to being intimidated in New York, Alex was also the target of thinly-veiled death threats on the Piers Morgan program the night following his appearance.
“I don’t care what the justification is that you’re allowed in this country to own a semi-automatic weapon – much less a handgun. But what do you need a semi-automatic weapon for? The only reason I think you’d need it is, Piers, challenge Alex Jones to a boxing match, show up with a semi-automatic that you got legally and pop him.”
Morgan’s guests laughed at the thought of Jones’ murder. Guest Abby Huntsman, a host and producer at HuffPost Live, said, “I’d love to see that…in uniform,” to which Morgan said, “I’ll borrow my brother’s uniform.”
After Doug Hagmann, of the Northeast Intelligence Network, learned that Jones was appearing on the CNN program, he contacted his DHS insider source who told him that federal agents were indeed “assigned to follow Alex Jones during his visit to New York.”

Piers Morgan had it easy. Radio show host and author Alex Jones threatened the rest of us with a “revolution” if the government decides to confiscate guns from the homes and glove compartments of law-abiding Americans. It’s almost too easy to dismiss Jones as a fringe figure, especially since fringe ideas make their way into the mainstream with (exciting? alarming?) frequency these days. So let’s take him seriously.

CHANTILLY, Va. – As the the exclusive Bilderberg Conference being held at the Westfields Marriott Convention Center starts to wind down, the protests are just getting started.
WND was on the scene early in the morning to meet the protestors and find out what motivated them to spend their weekend keeping a watchful eye on this elusive gathering.
An anonymous protestor from North Carolina commented to WND that he attended because “I wanted to see if this was real.” He detailed how the attendees were the “top .01 percent of the world financial elite.”
While the mainstream media would be quick to dismiss the protestors as a group of conspiracy theorists, a wider range of the political spectrum was represented. Tea partiers, libertarians, traditional conservatives and even a few occupiers were woven into the coalition of long-time Bilderberg hunters.
The watchful guardians of the entire protest were the Oath Keepers, a group of patriotic servicemen involved in the military and police who swear fealty to the Constitution.
A ridiculous ambush attempt on Alex Jones by reporters working for Tucker Carlson’s Daily Caller at the site of the Bilderberg protest spectacularly backfired as the crowd and the Daily Caller’s own readers lambasted the website’s attempt to characterize the Bilderberg Group as insignificant.
Alex Jones has been banned from the Westfields Marriott Washington Dulles hotel in Chantilly, Virginia today two days before the start of the 2012 Bilderberg conference.
…..Pearl Harbor was invaded.
Men went to war. All of the men. Except for me. I wasn’t born but if I was I certainly would not have gone. But that’s another story.
With all the men at war, women went to work.

Can The Disgraced Van Jones Build A Left-Wing Version Of The Tea Party?

Remember Van Jones, the President Obama’s “green energy czar,” from the early days of the administration? He’s the one who resigned after Glenn Beck and others exposed a video of him calling Republicans “assholes,” and his dabbling in 9/11 conspiracy theories.
The return of Van Jones

As an unabashed and high-profile liberal on President Barack Obama’s White House staff, former “green energy” czar Van Jones was to Republicans what a red cape is to a snorting bull: an irresistible target.
So when he resigned in 2009 under withering fire from the right — triggered by a video of him disparaging the GOP, followed by revelations of a tenuous connection to Sept. 11 conspiracy theorists — few doubted Jones was finished in Washington. He acknowledged as much a year later, writing in The New York Times that politics has become “a combination of speed chess and Mortal Kombat: one wrong move can mean political death.”

Van Jones offered a prediction Wednesday for those who have been watching the Occupy Wall Street movement: “You haven’t seen anything yet.”
The former Obama administration “green jobs czar” — an ardent supporter of the Occupy movement since its inception — said in an interview with CNN that the movement is ready to evolve into the areas of politics and policy-making, much like the Tea Party did in 2010.
“You’re going to see an evolution now as you go from protests, keep the protests, but now expand into politics,” Jones said. “And if you thought there was an earthquake in 2010 when the Tea Party moved into politics, wait until this 99 percent movement moves over into politics. You haven’t seen anything yet.”
In his speech to the “Take Back The American Dream” conference Monday, former Obama advisor Van Jones held up the “Occupy Wall Street” movement as an example of what progressives could do to force change.
“I’m not mad at [the tea party] for being so loud,” he said. “I’m mad at us for being so quiet the last two years.”
“Something just came across the news wire,” Jones announced. “It’s an extraordinary thing. We know we have the young folks and the struggling folks who are down there on Wall Street… They went down there to the scene of the crime against our future. They went down there and they have been camping in the rain. They’ve been beaten. They’ve been pepper-sprayed. They’ve been falsely arrested. And when they police were dragging them away, they said, We’re out here, the 99 percent, we’re fighting the one percent. You, officer, are part of the 99 percent. We’re fighting for your pensions too. We’re fighting for your pensions too.’ This is a new movement.”
“And because of their courage and the character they showed, today it was announced that in their dress blues, Marines are going to protect them and stand with them. In their dress blues! The Marines! The veterans!”
He added: “This is a movement moment! Something’s happening in America! Something’s happening in America! Don’t you give up on this country! Don’t you give up on this movement!”
“They’re going to stand out there with those young people in their dress uniforms. And one of them had a sign and the sign said, ‘This is the second time I fought for my country… It’s the first time I’ve known who my enemy was.’”
The former “green jobs” adviser, speaking at the top of a three-day conference in the nation’s capital designed to galvanize liberal activists, spoke interchangeably in harsh and glowing terms about the Tea Party movement. He described their cause as “the worst” and “silly” and other unflattering adjectives. At the same time, he said progressives can learn from what the Tea Party has accomplished, as he tried to steer the crowd toward his own umbrella group which he’s been working on since the summer.
Using the pick-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps tone President Obama has employed in recent days, Jones pointed to the Tea Party movement as an example of grassroots activism done right. He suggested liberals have relied too much on one person, Obama, to fix everything.

Van Jones, president of the progressive organization Rebuild the Dream, joins The Last Word to discuss what Washington should be doing about jobs. Jones calls the US‘ deficit problem “phony” and made up. “Hold on to your hats, we’re going to have an October offensive to take back the American dream and rescue America’s middle class,” Jones told MSNBC‘s “The Last Word.” Jones warns of an “American Fall” like there was an Arab Spring. Jones was President Obama’s “green jobs czar” until he resigned in fall of 2009. Transcript below: Van Jones: “We are going to build a progressive counterbalance to the tea party. Eighty percent of Americans agree with everything that you say on this show, but we have no voice. We know that jobs are more important, and this phony, made-up deficit stuff they talk about. We know that people who have done well in America should do well by America and start paying America back in the form of more fair taxes.

WHEATON, Illinois, September 29, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Therapists who favor normalizing homosexuality say that it is impossible to change sexual orientation, and that the attempt to change is inherently harmful. However, the final results of a long-term study published in the peer-reviewed Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy has joined hundreds of other studies in concluding that such therapy is both possible and potentially well-indicated for many individuals.
Psychologists Stanton L. Jones of Wheaton College and Mark A. Yarhouse of Regent University are the authors of the longitudinal study, which tracked individuals who sought sexual orientation change through involvement in a variety of Christian ministries affiliated with Exodus International.
The authors note that the study overcomes a primary criticism of same-sex attraction (SSA) therapy data – that the results are not adequately documented over a period of time – by assessing its 98 candidates over a period of six to seven years after therapy concluded.
Jones and Yarhouse’s results show the majority of candidates were successful in their goal of changing sexual orientation, and that the attempt was not harmful on average.
Of the original 98 subjects, 61 were successfully categorized for general outcome at the last assessment. Fifty-three percent were categorized as successful outcomes; specifically, 23 percent reported success in the form of an essential change to heterosexual orientation and functioning, while an additional 30 percent reported no longer identifying as homosexual while maintaining stable behavioral chastity. At the six-year mark, 20 percent reported fully embracing a gay self-identification.
Meanwhile, the authors say the measure of psychological distress did not, on average, reflect increases in psychological distress associated with the attempt to change.
“These results do not prove that categorical change in sexual orientation is possible for everyone or anyone, but rather that meaningful shifts along a continuum that constitute real changes appear possible for some,” states a press release announcing the study. The release also emphasizes, “the results do not prove that no one is harmed by the attempt to change, but rather that the attempt does not appear to be harmful on average or inherently harmful.”
Dr. Jones told LifeSiteNews.com that the study was likely skewed toward optimism towards therapy, as it wasn’t able to count candidates who dropped out early. However, he said, the study still stands out from the crowd for its value as a long-term assessment of the viability of same-sex attraction therapy.
“The ‘silver standard’ [of SSA therapy studies] is a longitudinal study that follows people repeatedly over multiple years and also a prospective study that assesses people from the beginning of change. To the best of our knowledge, ours is the first such study,” wrote Jones in an email Thursday.
“The ‘gold standard’ would be a completely experimental and longitudinal study that would also randomly assign participants to different treatment groups with highly defined treatments; we believe such study would actually be impossible to perform.”
A meta-analysis of over 100 years’ worth of research into therapy for unwanted same-sex attraction published in June 2009 concluded that homosexuality was not immutable, and that individuals seeking change could benefit from therapy. The report, published by NARTH, included 600 reports from clinicians, researchers, and former clients principally published in professional and peer-reviewed journals.
Although the American Psychological Association discourages mental health professionals from offering sexual reorientation therapy, the group’s official position on such therapy states that there is “insufficient evidence” to either approve or discredit the practice.
Homosexuality was declassified as a mental disorder in 1973 in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), the universal standard for classification of mental illness, after years of high-pressure lobbying by gay rights activists. The change sparked a policy shift in other top professional associations, which now uniformly oppose SSA therapy.
Dr. Robert Spitzer, who was in charge of the DSM change, reversed his position on therapy for unwanted same-sex attraction nearly 30 years later to support such therapy based on his own research.

Last night FauxNoose ran a piece on Jim Jones and The Jonestown thing. They claimed it had new never-b4-seen photos, etc. I saw nothing new. For years we have seen both the party line article on this, and much lesser, the conspiracy theory articles here and there.
I recalled that there was one conspiracy theory stuck in my old mind-housing-group about a Special Forces team that had gone into Jonestown before the media came upon the scene. A Ms Google search eventually turned up the article I had been thinking of–seems it had involved Col Bo Gritz–that I had not remembered.
What is the truth of Jim Jones and the Jonestown incident?
I do not know.
Is there anything to the various “conspiracy theories” involving this?
I do not know.
What of the party line account of things on this? Many points of view even with the party line account.
Anyway, the conspiracy angles are interesting, if nothing else.
Here’s another article here.
