Is Alex Jones Defensible? A Look at Heresy.

It’s been a while, again, but the time is passed to revive this blog … if only because my days on Facebook may be numbered. I had plans to start off with a post on the need for a “broadening” of the purview of philosophy to accommodate the kinds of public issues I post about elsewhere, but the refusal of Facebook to post a censored URL drove me here prematurely. So here we are. This platform does not appear to censor, and Lost Generation Philosopher does not accept censorship.

In any event, on to the question in the title. Paul Craig Roberts thinks so. Read his article here.

Like Roberts (who long ago became one of my favorite online writers), I do not claim to know the full truth about what happened at Sandy Hook. Do you? Were you a witness? Given that neither of us was there, who do you trust to bring you accurate information about what happened, assuming you care?

The point is … people claiming that the government has lied, whether about this or about other significant events, cannot be convicted a priori of being tinfoil hat wearers, when it is clear that a confirmed list of government and corporate media lies would probably fill several pages of printable text.

Or so argues Roberts in his highly provocative and politically incorrect defense of Alex Jones, which cites Lew Rockwell and Ron Unz (censored by most of Big Tech). The latter has inquired into the activities of one Cass Sunstein, Obama-era operative, and his strategy of cognitive infiltration, I picked up on in a recent article I wrote for NewsWithViews.com.

This is not really about Sandy Hook, of course. It is about corporate media failure. This is assuming corporate media was ever about reporting the truth, accurately. Arguably, it has been about reporting events, some real and some manufactured, within the parameters of elite-approved narratives. Big Tech just further reinforces these narratives with censorship.

The point is, most “news” today, like most “education,” is about indoctrination, cognitive programming, and the reinforcement of elite-approved narratives. That may sound blunt for a philosophy blog. Can it be further explored and demonstrated? Of course it can, had I the time or inclination to post those pages of documented corporate media lies, often reflecting government lies (some now half-a-century old, and some older still).

But read Paul Craig Roberts defense of Alex Jones here.

Heresy? Maybe a little heresy is good for us!

Decide for yourself what you think. You still have that right. It has not been taken from you. Yet.

    OK, Regardless of everything else. “they” are killing and incarcerating us. We have found the solution. of at least a solution.

    All Power is Inherent in the People

    It is Up to the Good and Righteous People vs. Bad and Evil Persons

    As of July, 2022 a Grand Jury from our jury pool of men and women on Oregon has brought forth presentments from all 5 hearings. One of the most recent, against the Oregon Health Authority’s 46 top persons. In 2021, a Grand Jury and a Trial Jury – consisting Oregonians, those non-U.S. citizen men and women, sovereign without ruler or subjects, from our jury pool – brought forth 93 Presentments to 38 Oregon Prosecutors. 3 True Bills to our ARTICLE III Amendment VII Civilian Court of record that provided guilty verdicts against evil doers Kate Brown, Ron Wyden, Jeff Merkley and Suzanne Bonamici on Oregon.

    Our ARTICLE III Amendment VII Civilian Court of record, found 8 persons guilty of treason in August. Video at http://www.orsja.org.

    When we implemented Article III. Amendment VII., and tried our 1 governor, 2 Senators, 1 House Representative and all but one* of the 90 Oregon Legislators at different trials. We found them all guilty as oath breakers, without honor and may not hold a position of trust; and guilty of due process violation 18 USC 3571 250K for each incident. Mike Nearman is the exception. We are waiting for 38 de facto Prosecutors to do their job post our trial and convictions of these bad actors..

    We are the Oregon Statewide Jural Assembly. We meet on Skype most Mondays at 7:00PM. You will be notified. Our function is to return Oregon to a Constitutional republican form of government thru a de jure Grand Jury process this year, 2022! The following is a five-minute read. Then there are some attachments. We are always seeking more Grand Jury/Trial Jury members to take these ogres to trial. Our documents are found at http://www.ORSJA.org. What we also seek is businesses, owners and managers and directors to become aware of the truth and act accordingly. We speak to Company ‘s Board of Directors meetings. And with staff if invited, on or off premises, clubs and associations face to face within 100 miles. Zoom and Skype after that.

    Briefly: We are in a malevolent, predatory form of martial law from D.C./United States* INCORPORATED governance color of law, de facto in some form since March 1861. Its the Lieber Code from Lincoln’s Executive Order 100 in color of law. We had a Constitutional republican form of government from 1819 to 1860 or 1861. From 1776 to 1819 it was changing from an overthrown monarchy. Most of the “people from 1776 to 1819, the people at large” were not convinced for a long time.

    There really is an active conspiracy, the industrial/military/judicial/legislative/executive/banker/ BAR/royalist/Nazi/communist/Catholic/Muslim/Kazarian/[Georgia Guidestone] complex.

    This does not involve the true Constitutional republican form of government on each of the several states. As long as there are still “people” — that is the flesh-blood-soul, body-mind-Spirit, as juxtaposed to “person” — the ALL-CAP NAME CORPORATE fiction — all power is inherent in the people.

    Rather than being a de facto subdivisions of the U.S., INC., each state is an autonomous Nation, each with its own Constitution! All power is inherent in the people. The number of people is not specified and a majority is not required as we are NOT a Democracy. The several states of the Union are the creator party to “The United States of America’s Constitution,” and the United States. The “people at large” are beneficiaries of that contract. The “people at large” are the creator party to their State’s Constitutions. On Oregon, that is Article I. Section1.**

    The STATE OF OREGON’s incorporated governance is color of law ARTICLE VII (Amended) and (Original) November 8, 1910. It is operated by the Salem oligarchy, aka Kate Brown et al, which is a subdivision of the D.C./United States* as originally incorporated during Lincoln’s era.

    We think each STATE (33) or TERRITORY (17) OF THE OTHER 49 is about the same. A little more carrot or a little more stick.

    To remove the Lieber Code/martial law/FEMA the method is clear and written down by the de facto. The Lieber code of Lincoln’s EO 100 is nullified by a Civilian Court on the land. So says SCOTUS in Ex parte Milligan. There was no — none, zero! — Civilian Courts on the land of Oregon — until ours! I was told there are one on Texas, one on Philadelphia and one on Georgia. I have been unable to prove this. I do know there is no Article III court that will claim original jurisdiction. Foe a definition see Mookini 303. They have acquiesced so “we, the people, must do it ourselves, no one can do it for us, we cannot do it alone.”

    The Army Heritage Center 717-245-3972/3949 in 2021 verified the Lieber Code was updated and still in effect in 2015. No known changes since then. The Judge Advocate General attorney, acronym JAG, knew exactly what I was talking about.

    A method of returning Oregon to a Constitutional republican form of government was/is: We assembled our 1st amendment Oregon Statewide Jural Assembly 4 years ago. We notified the DOJ, USMS, FBI, USMC, 36 Sheriffs, 30 Senators, A.G, governor, Secretary of State lawfully and none rebutted our claim. They all acquiesced and defaulted. We have proven our claims. See http://www.orsja.org.

    We formed Article I; Section 1 of Oregon’s Constitution and informed all the same ones. We formed our Civilian Court of record and informed all the same ones. Through Ex Parte Milligan’s authority we nullified Lieber Code/martial law/FEMA. Not one rebuttal.

    We informed the Oregon National Guard/Oregon Organized Militia’s JAG and they are not happy and have talked back and hung up. We are awaiting an appointment with their Commanding General. Therefore, we formed our 2nd Amendment well regulated militia on Oregon. No rebuttals.

    Ex Parte Milligan, 71 U.S. (4 Wall.) 2 (1866), was a landmark decision of the US Supreme Court that ruled the application of military tribunals to citizens when civilian courts are still operating as unconstitutional.

    Prepared by Francis Lieber, promulgated as General Orders No.100 by President Lincoln, 24 April 1863. Instructions for the Government of Armies of the United States in the Field, prepared by Francis Lieber, LL.D., Originally Issued as General Orders No. 100, Adjutant General’s Office, 1863, Washington 1898: Government Printing Office.

    ** ARTICLE I Section 1 of Oregon’s Constitution Natural rights inherent in people.

    We declare that all men, when they form a social compact are equal in right: that all power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety, and happiness; and they have at all times a right to alter, reform, or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper. —
