Alex,

There are several things that I strongly disagree with you on, but I have always considered you a true patriot to the American people. That is, until you came out and dismissed #OccupyWallStreet as some Soros, Democratic Party front group. You came on air and claimed that you extensively researched the history of #OccupyWallStreet and concluded that it was an Astro-turf non-legit movement.

I take deep personal offense to your comments.

As someone whose reporting has been featured on your site and Prison Planets, I know that you did not really “extensively research” the origins of this movement. If you did, you would be familiar with my extensive reports on the origins of the movement, such as the most recent: “A Report from the Frontlines: The Long Road to #OccupyWallStreet and the Origins of the 99% Movement.”

If you actually do your homework, you will see that this movement partially grew out of Anonymous led Federal Reserve protests. In fact, this movement was given a major boost from my work with a regular guest on your show, Max Keiser. Have you heard of the Global Insurrection Against Banker Occupation? Have you heard of the Empire State Rebellion?

Yes! You have!

I have worked my ass off for over 3 years to make #OccupyWallStreet happen. In fact, over the past 3 years I have repeatedly tried to contact you to collaborate on Federal Reserve protest actions. Despite millions of online views on my reports, and being repeatedly featured on your site, not ONCE, have you acknowledged our efforts.

To demonstrate how little you understand what’s happening on the ground at #OccupyWallStreet. Let me make a few things clear to you.

1) Have you noticed that Liberty Park is closer to the NY Fed than the stock exchange? We purposely picked that park because of how close it was to the NY Fed.
2) Have you also failed to notice that we are occupying Federal Reserve banks. We’ve had people at the Chicago Fed since the start and have occupations in the works at ALL Fed locations.
3) Have you talked to the many listeners of your show that are at the #OccupyWallStreet protests. The “End The Fed” crowd is a significant part of the action.

Perhaps that’s just it. Perhaps you can’t accept that YOU were not the person to start this movement. Is that it? Is this all about vanity and ego? I don’t want to get too deep into personal attacks here. After you admit that you made a mistake, or perhaps a rush to judgment, I would gladly embrace you as an ally. After all, we are fighting against the same global financial oligarchy. At least that’s what I thought. Now I think you may be a divide and conquer pawn, or perhaps an ego-maniac. I’m still hoping you’re a legit patriot, it would be great if you support our fight against the global financial elite, but we will soon see.

I invite you to a public debate on these issues. Max Keiser can moderate.

Let’s do it on the Keiser Report. I’ll even come on your show so you can have full editing capabilities. I just went into the belly of the beast on GE’s NBC’s Nightly News and represented hardcore, so hardcore that they only aired one sentence of what I said in 15 minutes worth of footage.

Are you the real deal Alex, or are you a divide and conquer pawn? I’m hoping you’re for real. I would love to have you as an ally. We need all the help we can get.

    He won’t accept the debate — but if he did, that would be a great way to identify the common ground between his concerns and the movement’s concerns, and get more points to order.

    I too respect Alex Jones’ work in general, and his philosophy in general. I too think he is making a mistake by going divided-and-conquered. I think David is right to have written this letter, and David has enough truth on his side to proceed with or without Alex, but hopefully WITH him, after a fact-based, mutually respectful reconciliation. That will depend on Alex Jones’ choices.

    I listen to AJ regularly and found out about amped status from a link on infowars, but since then I read here regularly and like DeGraw’s work to. I find this controversy disturbing, I hope Alex addresses it and acknowledges he went too far in dismissing the entire Occupy WS movement as far left when it is just some of them. I think he just is too paranoid sometimes, its understandable because of the way the elite hijack other movements like how they hijacked the Tea Party. But AJ needs to realize that they are trying to hijack occupy wallstreet but aren’t successful yet and won’t be if we all work together.

  3. BuelahMan said:

    Thanks, David.

    This has rubbed me the wrong way, in that, I have always thought of AJ as a disinfo kinda guy, but haven’t been able to throw the baby out with the AJ bath water. Sure, there is enough to keep the Truthers active and chomping for raw meat. But he refuses to address some of the real issues.

    I also hate the fact that he has been linking and praising Drudge, which I consider a problem for this country (much like the Daily KOS place).

    When I saw him dogging the OWS movement when I know there are people who are real in their motive, then I felt something amiss was occurring.

    After I studied the video of Alex Jones disrupting and destroying the protest in Austin earlier this year, I am now even MORE suspicious of him than I was before.  BEWARE OF ANY LEADER, people!  Jones is highly suspicious.

    Atta boy, Dave.  I think we know the truth about AJ, but it’s mighty wide of you to give him one last chance to act like a human being and not a reptilian in a man-costume.

  7. Either way, we’re glad that Alex is visiting Texas and encouraging the occupation in Dallas!  http://youtu.be/OnajBfYXDjY

    you didnt pick the park, the cops forced the people to go from wall street to there…

    Alex Jones, like Anthony Wile, sells fear through a private corporation: Jones directly off his website and Wile by directing his victims to an MLM website called meettheilluminatti.com. Jones “moderated” me the minute I brought up corporate personhood and Wile when I question his pet bogeymen – the Power Elite. (Not to say there aren’t Bigfoots and Aliens amonst us, but I haven’t seen one nor can anyone produce a shred of proof.)

    I do believe in FUBAR economic *systems* however. 

    Neither Wile’s Daily Bell nor Jones’ Prison Planet will support a movement that pulls their fangs. If they do join in, watch for disruption and resistance to any attempt at revoking the corporate immunity to prosecution (personhood). They’re both “1% wannabe” s.

    Wile and at least one of his “advisors” were banned from trading stocks by the SEC for fraudulent dealings. That should tell you what to expect from whom. Jones is just another predator.

  10. HHisfedup said:

    Alex Jones follows the same corporate handlers as the MSM and our dual citizen congress. Why a guy who states he researches the truth makes sure he keeps his handlers in the blind spot is beyond me.  He knows that if he touches the 3rd rail, it’s over for him and his show. And to be perfectly honest, he’s about as legit as Rush Limbaugh.

    He appeals to a certain type of audience who needs a late aged white guy to lend credibility to a movement, with the hope that he is touting just enough of the ‘important stuff’ to get people to refer their friends. Keep ‘em wrappend in BS like Rush, by making inflammatory and general statements, and sheeple will glom and say ‘Hey, he’s our man, he knows our pain’.

    Someone needs to challenge his sorry butt and put HIM on the defensive. If he really wants to talk issues, I say let him debate Rivero, with no one having control of the mute button, and lock em into seperate rooms with a head set and a mic. I thing Jones will sepukku before he comes out and has to answer to his Zionist masters. He’s a shill. the sooner you all realize it, the sooner something changes. Or keep letting him lead you in circles. Just like a good shepherd does, especially one who’s been paid off on the side. What a loser. ‘Reasearched #OWS and found it false’? what a moron.

  11. Reallyguy said:

    Alex Jones is an obnoxious, self-centered, blowhard more concerned with lining his pockets than promoting the changes that he espouses.  In spite of that, I followed him for over a year in the naive belief that he was exposing the hidden truths that I’d always known were hiding behind the curtain.  That is until Michael Rivera at whatreallyhappened.com and others exposed him for what he is: A ZIONIST GATEKEEPER.  The proof is obvious once you realize that in none of his rants about 9/11 in which he claims to be exposing the conspiracy, does he mention the Israeli Mossad involvement.  I’m not going into the details because they are everywhere and known to all serious researchers of the treasonous event, but that is enough to cause me to say F**K off Alex, go peddle your crap to someone who can’t think for themselves.   Oh wait, not more disinfo, make that F**K of and disappear.

    Alex always fucks the movement in key moments. Example: Ron Paul, 2008 Elections, New Hampshire

  15. Gforceunite said:

    wow a bunch a band wagoners you all sound like you got all your shit together, alex maybe wrong this time but most the time he’s right on so who’s dividing and conquering here, anybody here that can claim you are always right , no , I thought not.you people are the reason we might not win this fight , you are quick to turn on one of your own, alex is definitely a patriot and has been on the right side almost every time , I would even say 99% of the time , that’s a good number in my book, go divide and conquer yourselves somewhere with all this bullshit ,the article written was in the right spirit asking alex to re-research what he is or has said and come back with the right team ,if he made a mistake , I’m with that all the way.

  16. Reallyguy said:

    I’m not right all the time, but I back my claim about Alex the gatekeeper with the simple fact the he refuses to even mention well-established info about Israeli Mossad involvement in 9/11

  17. f8te said:

    Well, now you know not to trust that fucking blow hard scammer.  He is like Robert Preston in the Music Man.  He’s a piece of shit.  Oh yeah alex, Saudi Arabia runs hollywood you sayanim traitor! 

    !!ALEX JONES IS AN INSIDE JOB!!

    Get it through your heads idiots.  Question everything and everyone.  The truth WILL NOT BE PLEASANT.  But it is what we ALL should be striving for.  Fuck anyone who tells you that their critics are just “jealous”.  Total scum that dude is.  All the way to his new dodge viper.  Fuck that guy.  If someone in the media or alternative media tells you to question everyone but HIM!  You better watch out. 

  18. Bluecollarman07 said:

     I tried being reasonable with he and his staff….. it wasn’t just the mistake he is making with this national movement, it was the way I was personally attacked just for trying to reach out to him. Now that I know what kind of organization he runs, I will never trust him again. I doubt even a personal apology would do any good now, you can’t trample a person like that and expect them to believe anything you ever do again…….

    “Now
    I think you may be a divide and conquer pawn, or perhaps an
    ego-maniac..”

    Why
    not both at the same time?

    Jonestown
    is a truly Orwellian place. For someone who claims to defend free
    speech, people get expelled from AJ’s webforums at a drop of a hat
    without any explanation. This happened to me, and countless others.
    Any time one offers any criticism, you’re gone..

    Also,
    AJ likes to describe himself as going beyond partisan politics,
    beyond left and right.. Well, now he’s just totally feeding such
    partisan distinctions by claiming that OccupyWallStreet are just a
    bunch of commies! It’s a joke..

    He’s
    now totally blown his cover.

  24. HHisfedup said:

    Yeah, big difference here is Rivero admits he made a mistake, and is willing to discuss it. He’s also not in the pockets of some corporation or foreign power. Same absolutely can’t be said about AJ. He’s a shill. 
    And if hoping ‘change’ would occur is a crime, then yeah, most people are guilty. If only being bought out by foreign interest really were a crime that was upheld, we’d lose our government, our media, our judicial system, and most of our corporations all in 24 hours or less. To bad we can’t ship them all back to that other country they keep protecting instead of the one they live in. Besides, if that’s your only argument for AJ then I’ve probably given you more food for thought than you digest in 4 sittings.

  25. HHisfedup said:

    Better than Rivero though, I would pay real silver or gold to see Jones go head to head with Dawson. I’d even let Jones have an ear bud with one other person connected to his handlers to ‘help’ him defend himself. Now there’s a kid who does some real research and provides some real facts, you know, those things AJ does his best to ignore while he plucks at your heartstrings and plays the ‘aliens, chemtrails, illuminati’ swing. When AJ comes back with some solid facts that don’t sound like Beck and Rush with a megaphone glued to their mouth, then I’ll possibly refer some right wing nuts his way, or some left wing bleeders.

  26. Anonymous said:

    Alex hasn’t mentioned this letter at all but seems to have changed his tone. His latest article he says that Obama and Soros front groups are trying to infiltrate and takeover OWS, but he acknowledges that there are real legit protestors there now and encourages people to not let Dem front groups hijack this.

  27. Consti2tionalist said:

    Bull, Jone$ is far from being a patriot. A patriot does not fear telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Jone$ is a PAYtriot. You pay to hear him tell you about 80% of the story. He leaves out a certain group of people so what good is it to talk about a crime if you don’t mention all the people involvoed.

  28. Consti2tionalist said:

    You are 100% correct. A person who knows the truth and doesn’t speak it is a miserable coward.

  29. Matt Prather said:

    That’s a much better stance.
    Thanks.

    Ryan Dawson does some amazing work and Alex’s cronies tries to discredit Ryan for his work against Israel. Alex Jones is married to a jew and he has friends that are jewish. So what do you expect from that? He has blamed hollywood being controlled by the Arabs and yet Hollywood is controlled by the jews. I have also been banned on his official Alex Jones youtube channel because I guess he got tired of me yelling about zionism and him being clueless!

    If Alex want’s to make things right with the blogosphere he needs to do 2 things:

    1. Issue a strongly worded condemnation of Israel’s ongoing Crimes against Humanity, combined with a profuse apology to the families of Palestine.

    2. Apologize to the poor soul’s who are risking everything and fighting back against the Wall Street Criminals
