I swear to God, life doesn’t get much better than this sometimes. Alex Jones, yeah, the Infowars idiot, who thinks that Sandy Hook Elementary was a hoax, who can’t seem to do a broadcast without getting sued for slander and libel, and who spends hours a day hawking a miracle cram with really autoerotic application instructions, is now under the same January 5 microscope as Roger Stone.
MSNBC had a little more detail this morning than they had when I wrote yesterday’s Stone article, but it isn’t any better for Stone or Jones, nor potentially for Trump. The feds are apparently investigating the month of December, as the Stop The Steal movement grew in intensity, and in the events leading up to the January 6th Capitol riot. They want to see if Jones and Stone used their influence and positions to coordinate activities with, or between the groups leading up to the assault, and also whether they secretly funneled money to the groups for equipment and travel money to DC.
Jpnes has been known to share a little air time here and there with some of these cretins, and loves to brag about the closeness of his association with Trump. Stone likes to make it seem like he made Trump what he is, and portrays himself as the ultimate insider trouble maker for Trump and the GOP.
This has the potential to blow up in everybody’s faces, including Trump. Just a quick aside to lead into my next point. I grew up in Chicago in the 60’s and 70’s, just as the FBI and the DOJ was fully engaged in their war against organized crime, and with the inception of the RICO statutes, was really starting to lay the hurtin’ on them.
If you wanted to go after a boss, you didn’t investigate the boss. He was well insulated by cutouts, that’s how he stayed boss. The way you got to a boss was to go after somebody just below the boss, and get him to roll over and testify directly against the boss in court.
But see, here’s the rub. Guys like Joe Valachi and Sammy Gravagno didn’t suddenly get up in the morning and decide, Fuck it, I think I’ll roll over on the boss today. Even with witness protection, it was a potential death sentence. You got a bunch of lower level fuck ups to roll over on Vaalachi and Gravagno, and threatened them with decades in prison and a loss of everything they owned.
This is where the current investigation may be leading. These two ass clowns are career, low level fuck ups. Jones is a craven, hypocritical coward who, a couple of years ago appeared on 60 Minutes, and flat out admitted that he doesn’t really believe Sandy Hook was a hoax, but the controversy helped to keep himself and his show relevant. And Stone was the ultimate badass during his trial, saying he would die before betraying Trump. But if this all comes down around his ears now, and he gets slapped with a conspiracy charge, or aiding and abetting, we’ll see how badass he is now, especially since Trump can’t slip another pardon under his door.
Relax, this will likely take a while. But for the next few months, whenever you happen to have the news on, just keep one ear cocked for the names Stone and Jones. because, if it turns out that they did nothing wrong, than you may never hear their names on the news again. But if they start popping up, then it may be about to get real interesting. Don’t touch that dial.
