Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Claims The CIA Is Trying To ‘Assassinate’ Trump

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been repeatedly warning President-elect Donald Trump that “rogue elements” within the CIA are trying to “assassinate” him before he takes office. Trump, who has been publicly feuding with the CIA in recent weeks, reportedly speaks to Jones on the phone and watches his videos. He has previously echoed Jones’ other conspiracy theories and rhetoric.

Jones is a toxic promoter of conspiracy theories, including that the United States government perpetrated the 9/11 attacks and the tragedies at Columbine, Oklahoma City, Sandy Hook, and the Boston Marathon, among others. He was also a leading promoter of the false “pizzagate” conspiracy theories that led a Jones listener to fire a gun inside a Washington, D.C., pizzeria.

Trump has mainstreamed Jones: He appeared on Jones’ program in December 2015 and said he has an “amazing” reputation. Trump also called Jones after the election to thank his audience for supporting his candidacy and promised to appear on his program soon.

Trump reportedly watches Jones’ program and he has repeatedly echoed Jones’ ideas and rhetoric, prompting Jones to remark that it’s “surreal to talk about issues here on air and then word for word hear Trump say it two days later.” Top Trump adviser Roger Stone is also a contributor and frequent guest to Jones’ program. He told Jones that Trump appreciates his work and “knows that you are the centerpiece of the resistance.”

The CIA recently “concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency,” according to The Washington Post. Trump has responded to the report by dismissing and attacking the CIA. The Post subsequently reported that Trump’s attacks “will probably deepen an existing rift between Trump and the agencies and raised questions about how the government’s 16 spying agencies will function in his administration on matters such as counterterrorism and cyberwarfare.”

Meanwhile, Alex Jones has been repeatedly warning Trump that people within the CIA are “planning to assassinate” or “overthrow” Trump and that the agency is “thinking about bringing in outside mercenaries or other agencies” in order to do that.

Author Jon Ronson reported that Jones told him he and Trump speak on the phone and he also communicates with the president-elect through YouTube videos. Jones reportedly said: “I put a video out … a message to Trump. And then two days later he lays out the case. It’s like sending up the Bat Signal.”

Following the Post’s CIA story, Jones issued an “emergency alert” video on December 11 warning Trump that the CIA is trying “to assassinate” the president-elect. From his December 11 video:

ALEX JONES: Why I’m really concerned is that this could be used inside government to trigger emergency systems under COG (continuity of government) that if a major leader like the president is actually a foreign agent they can then reportedly be taken out. And so to have the bold move of implying that a president-elect is being manipulated and controlled by the Russians is a very, very serious telltale sign that they could be thinking about bringing in outside mercenaries or other agencies to actually try to assassinate the 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump, before he even gets into office. Because remember: They are incredibly desperate right now.

Jones added later in his video that “criminal corporate elements inside the CIA and other agencies” are “moving right now to try to basically overthrow Trump.”

On December 11, he issued another “alert” in which he accused the CIA of subverting Trump and the election. Jones said he “contacted the proper parties. I have run this intel up a lot of important, informed flagpoles, and they all concurred that there is a plan, which we now see is quite evident, to try to steal the election from the American people and Donald J. Trump.” He added that “rogue elements of the CIA are planning to assassinate Trump if they can. They’re definitely looking at it right now.”

Jones also appeared live in an “emergency” Facebook video on December 12 under the caption “CIA Now Stealing Election Trump Must Go On Offense!” In a “message to the president,” Jones told Trump, “I know you see some of my reports, but you’ve got to go on the offense” against perceived anti-Trump forces because “they’re going to politically kill you, and your name first, then they’re going to kill you.” He then suggested that members of the CIA are “enemies” and encouraged him to “go all the way” against them.

Jones’ YouTube channel has published numerous other videos accusing the CIA of trying to kill or “overturn” Trump’s election. Headlines include “It’s Official: CIA, Dems, MSM Planning To Overturn Trump Election!”;National Emergency: CIA Attempting To Overthrow Election”; “Entire MSM Promote Assassination Of Trump, In Prep For CIA Takeover”; and “CIA/Dems Move Forward With Plan to Steal Election From Trump.”

Jones has accused the CIA of being involved in some of the worst terrorist attacks in recent history. Jones said roughly a week after September 11 that the attacks were “a federal operation” and he had “smoking gun evidence” that Osama Bin Laden was “a CIA asset” and “a CIA hireling doing his job” for the government.

He claimed that the CIA was part of a government cabal that bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995. Jones said, “Oklahoma City was a total false flag with NATO, the ATF, and the CIA and the FBI.”

Jones claimed that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was convicted of the Boston Marathon bombing, “was totally set up, ladies and gentlemen, to sell the police state.” Jones also claimed that Dzhokhar’s deceased brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, “worked for the CIA.”

The conspiracy theorist also recently claimed that Facebook’s new plan to fight fake news is a CIA plot and called on Trump to “unfund the CIA trying to run this.”

    Evidence supporting such wild accusations would be too much to ask?

    1. iamproteus December 23, 2016

      What evidence? Don’t you know that r’s don’t need no stinkin’ evidence! Just shut the hell up and take their word for it. I mean, who are going to believe, them or your lyin’ eyes?

  2. Godzilla December 20, 2016

    Hilarious!!!!!! Your dreams of faithless electors have been dashed. The Russians are coming. Hollywood can’t save the agenda. Liberal’s don’t understand that is was the content of the emails released by Wikileaks that showed the corruption and collusion is what cost Hitlary votes. Now, you have lowered yourselves to attack an Conspiracy Theorist who has well over 1 million fans who vote. You fools haven’t learned that calling people names, attacking them for what ever reason, HAS FAILED! If Liberal’s want to be taken seriously, stop lying, stop the corruption and stop colluding with the media to promote your nonsense. First and foremost, pull your heads from your rectum, your agenda has failed. It will never be allowed. Either change or move to North Korea where many of you will fit in just fine.

    1. I Am Helpy December 20, 2016

      What does any of this have to do with the article?

      1. Godzilla December 20, 2016

        Now, you have lowered yourselves to attack an Conspiracy Theorist

        Which part of this don’t you get?

        1. I Am Helpy December 20, 2016

          The part where any of your words have anything whatsoever to do with the article. Also, why do you think that attacking conspiracy theorists – right-wing thought leaders – is somehow bad? Oh, right, because you’re one yourself.

          1. Godzilla December 20, 2016

            That’s all you could come up with? Gee, what a wimp. Here, a special note just for you, WIMPY!

          2. I Am Helpy December 20, 2016

            Yeah sorry that you’re inarticulate and stupid – but you are, after all, a Trump supporter.

          3. Jugears McGhetto Jr December 21, 2016

            Because we all know your supporters, mostly uneducated Muslims, ghettobangers and Illegal aliens are such dumbphucks they can’t even pay attention..

            YOUR TRIBE.. ALL FILTHY BROWN MOOCHIN SCUM and whites who can’t make it in the white world.. . SUCK ON THAT. N****ER LOVER.

          4. I Am Helpy December 21, 2016

            Hahaha wow. Thanks for not only proving my point, but underlining it. Twice. In red.

      2. FireBaron December 20, 2016

        Not a damned thing. Just Godzilla gloating. Next thing you know he will turn around and his tail will knock over another building.

    2. The lucky one December 21, 2016

      LOL, a guy who thinks Alex Jones should be taken seriously wants to advise others to “pull your heads from your rectum”. Thanks bud, that’s the funniest thing I’ve heard today.

    3. Joan December 21, 2016

      As a liberal, I just wish that this was one Alex Jones conspiracy that was true. Also hoping that this CIA assassination attempt is more successful than their previous attempts at regime change.

      Anyone who suggests that Liberals would fit in well in North Korea is seriously deficient in geography and or literacy. Explains why Alex Jones is audio/visual – his followers NEED pictures

      1. Jugears McGhetto Jr December 21, 2016

        PS just sent to the Secret service stupid ass.

        1. Joan December 21, 2016

          Lol, my post is not “actionable”, it is not even a threat. Literacy is not a strong suit for the Trumpiteers.

  3. FireBaron December 20, 2016

    So, let’s see. Teflon Donnie still has his private security force protecting him instead of Secret Service. Why? Who knows. Maybe Jones told him that the Secret Service is in on the CIA assassination attempt, and Teflon Donnie believes every thing that Jones says.
    Although if there were a CIA plot to get him, I somehow doubt the loyalty of his hired mercenaries will be enough to allow them to catch a bullet, as the Secret Service would.

    1. Jugears McGhetto Jr December 21, 2016

      Because he’s the president and like your worthless nig&^&&& just did for 8 years, can do whatever the hell he feels like doing.. Your ghettoboy paved that road.. Blame him you stupidfuck.,

  4. secondclassguy December 20, 2016

    People like Lincoln and Kennedy get assassinated not Trump. People who REALLY challenge the powers to be get killed, not those that pretend too and fool voters they will. He has surrounded himself WITH the powers that be, why should they fear him?

          Obama’s such a worthless ghettonigggger he gave himself a fkng raise on the way out the door. Who does that but a worthless ni6666er??? Following the most criminals ever cut loose by a sitting president. ALL FILTHY BROWN SCUM.. ALL OF IT.. Not one white guy.. ALL USELESS N&&&&&S… I hope they all move next door to YOU …

          That piece of filth you love so much just put more criminals on the streets with pardons and commutations that equal more than the previous ELEVEN PRESIDENTS COMBINED…. He’s nothing but a hired Muslim gun to make the country BROWN AND WORTHLESS like every other BROWN COUNTRY ON EARTH..

          1. The lucky one December 22, 2016

            I’d rather have every person released living on my block than have an obviously racist and almost unbelievably stupid arse like you anywhere in my town.

  5. bojimbo26 December 21, 2016

    Oh dear , the inmates have escaped the asylum .

    1. Dan S December 21, 2016

      Worse yet the inmates are now running the asylum

      1. Jugears McGhetto Jr December 21, 2016

        Oh but you didn’t have that problem with a Kenyan Born Muslim COMMUNITY ORGANIZER who was NOTHING BUT A PART TIME IL state senator.. He then got elected to an office running basically unopposed when the competition was run out of the race with stolen DIVORCE RECORDS.. Stolen from the IL Clerk of Circuit Court by AXELROD.. Or who we call ASSSHOLERODDER in my part of IL….

        You had no problem with his BULLLSHIIIIT RESUME. They’re still looking for students at Columbia who actually remember him being on campus because he wasn’t there. You had no problem with his thin resume.. and even after all the crap he did against the US constitution bringing filthy Muslim Islamic Migrants and Illegal aliens into this nation to win an election they lost!!!! That’s how fkng stupid this halfbaked ni***er is.

        You must be one yourself. We’ve had PRIMATES running this asylum for 8 years.. No one complaining there. @@ Stupid asssed liberals. These Muslims and liberal ghet to blacks you love so much would shiv you in the gut for a crack rock.. You stupid idiots.

        1. Dan S December 22, 2016

          Aaaah I see one of the inmates has responded ????

  6. jmprint December 21, 2016

    Well maybe society will get lucky, the bullet will ricochet and hit Alex Jones and rid us of the scum bag.

    1. Jugears McGhetto Jr December 21, 2016

      Because you liberals just want anyone who you don’t agree with dead. You people are sub human filth.. And believe you me, people like me are sending comments like this to the proper authorities every time YOU PEOPLE MAKE ONE… Ask all the dumb ni&^&&&ers on TWITTER how their death threats were dealt with.. OH YOU CAN’T DO THAT, because we had em locked up.. 🙂 Keep it up.. We’re watching you.

      1. Dan S December 22, 2016

        It’s time to put you out of your misery listening to your filth & I now have to block another troll ????

      2. The lucky one December 22, 2016

        I’m sure no sane person ever takes you seriously.

  7. I of John December 21, 2016

    The intell community wont bother with assassination, too messy. It will be death be 10,000 leaks.

    1. The lucky one December 21, 2016

      Yes and there is so much that he could be impeached for it will be rather easy.

      1. Jugears McGhetto Jr December 21, 2016

        Yea because it’s so easy to impeach a GOP president with A GOP HOUSE AND SENATE… You dumbazzzz leftists.. You people don’t know your heads from a fkng hole in the wall..

        YOU PEOPLE ARE OUT OF POWER.> SUCK IT UP.. You’re gonna need it.. put on your seatbelt, Obama’s world is DEAD.. BETTER HIDE…

  8. Karen_in_KC December 21, 2016

    So now we know why Orange Julius is hiring his own goon squad! We already know that Orange Goon projects what He is intent on doing or is already doing, onto his rivals. I’m watching to see which of our federal AND state Democratic LEGISLATORS start having fatal accidents, sudden fatal fanatic attacks, sudden fatal illnesses, you name it. I hope I’m wrong, but right now, I don’t think I am. I hope they are VERY VERY careful going into the future.

    1. Jim Samaras December 21, 2016

      Acquaintances of the Clintons should have been as wise as you.

      1. I Am Helpy December 21, 2016

        Conspiracy theory.

  9. Jim Samaras December 21, 2016

    Both sides have been against him from the beginning. Why would this be that far a stretch?

    1. The lucky one December 21, 2016

      The stretch is that if the CIA was in fact plotting this action that a knucklehead like Jones would have any info regarding the plan.

  10. Thomas Martin December 21, 2016

    Wow, Alex, you are so good at finding the “spin.” I am sure your flock will believe everything you say. Facts? You need them, you invent them.

  11. The lucky one December 21, 2016

    “implying that a president-elect is being manipulated and controlled by the Russians is a very, very serious telltale sign” Well yes it is Alex, it’s a sign Trump is unfit for the office but if anyone wants Trump out it is the GOP who would prefer a more stable man like Pence in his place.
