According to 'the google' he has an estimated worth of 5 million bucks, probably from his radio show mainly.....but I'll see If I can get any specifics

Most likely...

Occam would posit that he is merely just a moron, who found an audience...or perhaps worse yet...a fraud who knows the stuff he says is untrue YET he still does it anyway, just to make money.

The last observation fits him, Beck and just about everyone at Fox, MSNBC and talk radio for that matter~

I watched some documentary once that featured him. He'd always be like,"They're following me! They're following me!" And any sort of odd occurrence he'd say,"Look at that. They did that. They're don't want me heard." It was like, come on man.

I don't watch much televangelism, but let's say I agree.

That's still a long way from bump's comment, and doesn't dismiss the fact that bump is generally a moron who says little more than, "Corporations are bad man. You're blind." and "Churches are dumb!"

There's not much interesting about anything he posts, unless you're part of the choir he's preaching to, I guess, and look beyond the fact that he's a moron.

I've heard televangelists sound oddly familiar. Even Kent Hovind with his end times and we are all devolving nonsense is a light version of the crazy Alex Jones is spreading.

And Bump is not an idiot at all. You can maybe say he posts idiotic stuff, but he is no low IQ knuckle-dragger like several posters in this forum are / have been.

Well, the next time he posts something interesting will be news to me.

But, like I said, I suppose if you enjoy hearing his constant low rent brand of corporation complaints and sweeping religious generalizations you may enjoy his drivel.

that sounds about right. Beck used to plagiarize Jones quite a bit. it's funny because even though people think he is nuts, he scoops MSM news channels by weeks and months. I remember he used to rant about the NAU and Lou Dobb's did the same thing a full year later. AJ is a trendsetter.

I get you. it is funny. most people decry Jones for alarmism but then MSM does the same thing and people seem to accept that. the biggest difference is that newscasters don't do anything but read what's put in front of them.

sometimes the things Jones talks about comes out as infotainment too.
check this out...

1 guy convinces numerous people to help him kidnap a child, steal a wallet, harass a woman, or run interference while he harasses a lady. all it takes is a fake badge.

this is gangstalking 101. there is no gang, it's just a game that some people play to make people move out of their neighborhoods. sometimes it's the feds, other times citizens tricking people into thinking they are authorities. I recognized it as such because AJ talked bout this sort of thing 4 or 5 years ago.

The reason people have a problem w/ Jones is because they're not ready to hear what's really happening in the world. They go along w/ inflation and rising costs of living and they're ok w/ that and keep playing the 2-party repub/democrat finger pointing game.

Big pharma and these crooks from Monsanto and other GMO crops are soft killing the American people.

The MD medical programs all have a monopoly on the medical industry even though most of the medicines don't work, and are designed to get you addicited so that you keep heading back to the MD for more and they make more $$$

$$$ and greed have completely fucked this country into oblivion.

He hardly makes any money off any of that....not only that most of the $$ made is used to fund his operation and grow his business/hire more people etc...which there's nothing wrong w/ that IMO..it's how most small businesses work.

I have no idea who Alex Jones is, but this was well said. People are not ready to accept that their great country has fell to corruption and we are all basically just mindless sheep (or supposed to be mindless) designed to feed the elite. People don't want to accept that and they like to laugh and point fingers at anyone who tries to call it out because their brains aren't willing or capable to think outside the box.

Things will definitely get worse in our lifetime before anything gets better as that gap keeps widening.
