    Dear BBC, on behalf of the US, I'm very sorry you ever experienced Alex Jones.

    In other news, you want several centuries of bizarre human sacrifice in Kent? Well, here you go!

    How seriously is Alex Jones taken in the US? He just seems like a mouthy arsehole who wouldn't have a clue about actual issues like Prism because it's not paranormal or racist enough.

    I think the only reason he gets put on television anymore is so people can have a laugh and see if he has a heart attack on the air.

    There's got to be a certain entertainment agenda when he's let on things like this, but I'm sure that he's got an audience that believes what he's got to say, and sadly it's not a small one now.

    *nod* Agreed with Oddcult. Often what he says has just enough truth (or possibility of truth) in it that it hooks the more gullible. Nothing like Repteloids or that the center of the earth is hollow, but stuff like Sandy Hook being a false flag operation or 9-11 being an inside job.

    Seems to me that he is an ultra-conservative stooge, paraded around to make anyone who talks about "conspiracies" seem like lunatics. Classic distraction technique.

    They could have had a serious conversation about Bilderberg. Instead, they had Andrew "Brillo-pad" Neil making cuckoo expressions and shots of chuckling guests tweeting about the hilarity.

    My friend who lives near Watford wrote his own really bad badge that said "PRESS" on it and managed to walk into the press pack at the Bilderberg conference. He has a few photos of Alex Jones doing interviews, and various dignitaries turning up.

    Yea the most powerful people and top elected representatives, people who the population pay to act on their behalf, meet in private, Yea, that doesn't give me an uneasy feeling. What could they possibly have to discuss that would effect anyones life.

    In other statistics.
    Sales Of George Orwell's 1984 Have Surged 6884% In The Last 24 Hours

    In relation to Alex Jones, what Magnus said. I am always ready for more moments like this.
    Wogan fells uneasy.

    Nah. I do hope someone will teach it to smoke and kill dogs, though.

    Man calls police to complain about "ugly" prostitute
    A man has been warned by West Midlands Police after he dialled 999 to complain about a prostitute's looks after meeting her outside a hotel.
    The force said they were contacted by the caller who said he "wished to report her for breaching the Sale of Goods Act".
    An officer in the call centre at Solihull, Birmingham, responded by telling the man the woman had not committed any offences and explained to him that soliciting for sex was illegal.
    The force has now sent the man a letter warning him about wasting police time.

    Why Is Gay Porn So Popular in Pakistan?
    As of this writing, Pakistan is by volume the world leader for Google searches of the terms "shemale sex," "teen anal sex," and "man fucking man," according to Google Trends. Pakistan also ranks second in the world (after similarly gay-intolerant Kenya) for volume of searches for the search term "gay sex pics."

    In its report, Pew noted that countries exhibiting the highest levels of gay tolerance are largely secular, whereas nations where religion is central to public life—such as Egypt, Nigeria, and Pakistan—tend to reject homosexuality. But in Pakistan, what's even more peculiar is that the highest number of hits for some of these terms, including "shemale sex," come not from Pakistan's cosmopolitan centers, but from Peshawar, a bastion of conservative Islam, lately known in the West as a counterterrorism frontline.

    The Alex Jones Effect or the Max Stanhope Connection, I really don't know.

    Keiser and Jones on HIGNFY with Stanhope as chair, that would make my licence fee almost worthwhile.

    So there's been a major police Crackdown in Istanbul last night.

    At one stage a bearded middle-aged man draped himself over the plough of one of the water cannons to try to prevent it moving forwards before he was beaten back by batons and gas. Protesters sought refuge in hotels and cafes, including hundreds in the Divan hotel, which was stormed by police.

    Later police stormed the hotel beating protesters, while a later assault left the lobby of the luxury hotel thick with gas. The Observer saw two elderly women who had passed out being carried out on stretchers to an ambulance.


    Apparently, the police is still patrolling the street this morning, as you can see on this live stream.
