Alex Jones’ Infowars Debunks “Solar Killshot,” Reason.com Claims Dog the Bounty Hunter to Track NSA Leaker

Snowden

Snowden, seen here, enjoys his new Russian clipping path

Considering the ridiculous source, Alex Jones’ megalomaniacal delusion emporium, shock-bait/wank-fest Infowars.com, this one of the funniest things you’ll ever read:

The Internet is ablaze with yet another baseless conspiracy theory that only serves to distract from real cover-ups and issues of genuine significance – the hoax that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden recently warned of a “solar flare killshot’ set to wipe out hundreds of millions of people in September.

SNOW JOB: Being Edward Snowden

June 19th, 2013 by

How I pretended to be the NSA PRISM whistleblower on Twitter, gained some 4,400 followers, duped a bunch of journos, and why

This article originally appeared at the Internet Chronicle

Snowden, pictured here, definitely not using Twitter

June 8, as the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper was disclosing the identity of the leaker of top-secret National Security Agency PowerPoint slides, I was just finishing up a blog post on the leaker’s revelations. Having contrasted and compared published slides with claims by public officials, and given an in-the-loop Washington Post‘s reporter’s rationale for their selective release, I had the distinct sense that I was already behind the curve. The leaker, former NSA employee Edward Snowden, had fled the country for Hong Kong by the time he handed over the slides to The Guardian and The Washington Post. In an exclusive video interview with The Guardian from Hong Kong – where he is currently seeking asylum – Snowden made claims even more extraordinary than the slides themselves. (more…)

BY TYLER BASS

“[Glenn] Beck has repeatedly, respectfully, and recently played audio of men like Ezra Taft Benson, a Mormon apostle who thought the civil rights movement was a dastardly communist plot.

The military’s time traveling dolphin/human hybrids: is that a thing?

BY TYLER BASS


Aaron McCollum’s
story is one that will either leave you believing him insane, a liar, the greatest government whistleblower of all time or some combination of the three. Initially, in conversation with him, I confessed my belief to him that I thought he might even be a liar, a statement about which he seemed remarkably understanding, if of course in disagreement.

Depleted Uranium: delicious or dangerous?

BY TYLER BASS

Late this May, America.gov sought to clear the air on a wide variety of topics: aliens, anti-Semitism, Islam, fake moon landing stories, various 9/11 theories, government synthesized AIDS and more. The page is produced by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of International Information Programs and, as expected, they endorse none of their cataloged conspiracies. The Grassy Knoll was as obviously bunk as the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, and that’s just as crazy as depleted uranium being more of a health risk than low-toxicity tungsten.
