BBC HOST: ‘We Have An Idiot On The Program Today’ — And It’s Alex Jones

Andrew Neil yesterday made the universal "[batspit] crazy" gesture after trying to interview Alex Jones of InfoWars.

Andrew Neil yesterday made the universal “[batspit] crazy” gesture after trying to interview Alex Jones of InfoWars.

HYIP apologists dating back (at least) to the AdSurfDaily Ponzi scheme in 2008 ($119 million) have bizarrely sought to defend their favorite scams by steering discussions off the track. Why talk about the recidivist securities felon who presided over ASD (Andy Bowdoin), for instance, when the “real menace” is the Bilderberg Group?

And, hey, since the United States is a participatory Democracy, why not further cloud the issues by launching petition drives designed to derail the prosecutions of major Ponzi schemes (such as AdSurfDaily and Zeek Rewards) and even filing bogus liens for billions of dollars against judges, prosecutors and investigators?

If you encounter an HYIP Ponzi scheme these days that perhaps purports to pay interest of 2 percent a day or more, it’s a safe bet you’ll encounter one conspiracy theorist after another on well-known fraud-scheme forums such as TalkGold and MoneyMakerGroup — especially if the evilGUBment brings a criminal or civil action against the purported “opportunity.”

It was against this delusional backdrop that conspiracy theorist Alex Jones appeared on the BBC’s “Sunday Politics” program hosted by Andrew Neil. The subject was the annual meeting of the Bilderberg Group, sometimes known  simply as the Bilderbergers.

One of the best moments of the program occurred near the end of the Jones segment, when Neil made the universal “[batspit] crazy” gesture after Jones shared a FEMA concentration-camp conspiracy theory and screamed that “you will not stop freedom! You will not stop the republic! Humanity is awakening!”

Neil declared, “We have an idiot on the program today.”

Among the bizarre claims of the AdSurfDaily apologists was that all commerce is lawful as long as the parties to a “contract” agree that it is lawful, a position that would legalize Ponzi schemes — and slavery and human trafficking and narcotics trafficking, for that matter. The U.S. Secret Service took down ASD, and promptly was called “Satan” by ASD operator Andy Bowdoin, now serving a 78-month prison sentence for wire fraud for his 1-percent-a-day scheme.

The SEC took down Zeek Rewards in August 2012, amid allegations it was conducting a $600 million, international Ponzi- and pyramid scheme by duping people into believing they were receiving a legitimate return that averaged about 1.5 percent a day. A federal judge appointed a receiver, who quickly was described as a felon by a Zeek litigant. (The Zeek receiver is a former federal prosecutor who once successfully prosecuted a Hezbollah terrorist cell operating in the United States.)

Back in 2008 and 2009, some of the ASD apologists accused a federal judge appointed by President George W. Bush of committing dozens of felonies and conspiring with a chief judge to deny ASD members justice.

Why HYIP scammers seem to embrace the conspiracy theories of Jones long has been left to the imagination. One thing that is clear is that ASD and Zeek combined allegedly gathered $719 million. Some recent HYIP scams such as Legisi ($72 million) and JSSTripler/JustBeenPaid (unknown take) have required participants to avow they were not with the “government.” Legisi specifically named the CIA, FBI, SEC, “Her Majesty’s Police,” the Intelligence Services of Great Britain and the Serious Fraud Office, among others.

Late last month, the United States — working with other countries — took down a major payment processor for fraud schemes. Its name was “Liberty Reserve.”

  2. I was trying to remember how Terry Wogan handled David Icke during the “son of god” interview. There are some clips on youtube but this looks like the meeting to two grate (deliberate spelling) minds:

  4. Yeah John, that was a movie. Jones does break some stories worth looking into,(rarely) But he and his followers are kooks. His 9/11 garbage makes it nearly impossible to take anyone seriously that is a devotee of that nutjob. I guess we know where you stand.

    You mean the ‘garbage’ that three buildings, not two fell on Sept 11 2001? Yes I know where I stand. And since statistics show I am NOT going to be killed by terrorism I’ll worry more about cancer and heart disease.

    – You are 35,079 times more likely to die from heart disease than from a terrorist attack

    – You are 33,842 times more likely to die from cancer than from a terrorist attack

    And for good measure, watch out for bumble bees and baths. You are far more likely to die from a bee sting or slipping in your bath.

    Maybe bumble bees and baths should be monitored instead.

  6. The “interview” didn’t mention that the Bilderberg Group are “descended from a race of 12-foot, blood-drinking, shape-shifting lizards” as exposed by David Icke.
    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/news/politics/4960548/Is-Cam-a-12ft-lizard.html

    The meeting this year was in Watford! I think the real reason they held the meeting there is that they all wanted to pay homage to the birth place of Terry Scott. “Bilderberg Watford” it was called – has a nice ring to it.

    From The Guardian:

    “I wouldn’t join ’em, even if they asked me,” said Jack Ruck, an 87-year-old RAF veteran. Jack stared up at the luxury Grove Hotel. “200 quid a night? I’d rather sleep in my car.” Jack felt a genuine pang of sorrow for the Bilderberg delegates, spending so long conferencing in their five-star gulag. “What do they want out of life?” he wondered. “I think they’d have been happier round my back garden having a barbecue.”

  7. Tony H: The “interview” didn’t mention that the Bilderberg Group are “descended from a race of 12-foot, blood-drinking, shape-shifting lizards” as exposed by David Icke.

    I’m wondering if those are the same reptilians cited by some of the ASDers when they were advancing their NESARA conspiracy theories, Tony.

    Were the Icke shape-shifting lizards native to earth — or did they beam themselves on the planet after the secret legislation approving their presence was passed?

    Only the most naive could believe that the rich and powerful do not actively collaborate to attempt to maintain and expand their influence.

    Here are some facts from a Bilderberg attendee. In a radio interview reported on by the Belgian news website http://www.zonnewind.be, Claes told host Koen Fillet that Bilderberg does indeed decide policy for the coming year. Claes would certainly be in a position to know, being a two-time Bilderberg attendee as well as the eighth Secretary General of NATO from 1994 until 1995.

    >>The Bilderberg Group tells us who they are, when and where they meet, what their purpose is, and in broad strokes what they discuss<<

    Funny, up until not long ago, Bilderberg didn't exist – so the media kept saying. Same as the new world order – unless you are Gordon Brown and mention it 5 times in 10 minutes.

    No, not the ‘conspiracy theorists’ (a term coined by the CIA). The controlled media denied it for 50 years. But since you seem to have your head buried in the sand, you wouldn’t know.

    “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years……..It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
    (David Rockefeller in Baden-Baden, Germany 1991, thanking major media for keeping secret for decades the Bilderberg meetings and the movement towards a One World Government).

    “Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all the peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing that every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.”
    (Henry Kissinger, in an address to the Bilderbergers group, May 21, 1992- Evian, France).

  12. John… citing the writing of a satirist is hardly a good argument. Or did you not look at the background of the author who started that hubpage topic?

  13. John,

    People will respect your opinion a little more if you stop linking to infowars.

    Jones is a certifiable loon and nutjob. Please do some research away from the CT crowd for a change. And grow up.

  14. David Rockefeller Memoirs….

    “Some even believe we (the Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”.

    His own words.

    I have nothing else to say on this. It is up to everyone to do their own research and come to their own conclusions.

    One more thing…

    People will respect your opinion a little more if you stop burying your head in the sand and recognise that there are masses who do not trust governments and with good reason.

    And before calling someone a loon and a nut job get your facts right. MANY of the references in the infowars site are linked to MAIN STREAM MEDIA.

    Here ya go here’s just ONE of many subjects…

    Anwar al-Awlaki, the late American-born al-Qaeda cleric, was more deeply involved the September 11 attacks than previously known and even purchased plane tickets for the hijackers, it has emerged.Yet in February 2002, just four months later, al-Awlaki was invited to a dinner held at the Pentagon as part of the military’s “outreach to the Muslim community” in the aftermath of the attacks.

    LOTS more where that came from. But I guess you never knew that. That is all I have to say on this.

  16. I would just like to thank Patrick for allowing my comments, even though he, and many others here might not agree with or be familiar with them.

    As the well known saying goes… “I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”

    Other like minded idiots believe what he says about 9/11.

    Run and hide! The U.S. was behind 9/11! The sky is falling, the sky is falling!

    Sad and delusional.

  18. The problem with conspiracy theories is they are basically self-referential and treats absence of evidence as proof that conspiracy exists. As such, they are “insulated” against any attempts to disprove such theories. ANY anti-conspiracy evidence will be treated as an attempt to “discredit” the conspiracy, thus, more evidence of the conspiracy itself.

    You can never disprove a conspiracy theory to conspiracy theorists. In that sense, they are fanatics.
