Alex Jones Hawks Supplement With 'Stuff Found in Comets'

John Oliver delved into the world of conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Sunday’s episode of Last Week Tonight, taking a look at Jones’ lucrative supplement store. It’s estimated that the InfoWars Store, which sells “vitality formula,” “lung cleanse” and other dubious health products, brings in millions for Jones each year.

The episode had gems including Jones’ own explanation of why he wears expensive Rolex watches: “I dress as a Satanist so that I could enter their world.”

Wednesday on radio, Glenn parsed an odd clip where Jones explained a particular supplement that is organic --- yet not organic.

The supplement iss “made from organic sources, but the bacteria’s GMO,” Jones said in the clip. “This stuff is only found in comets, with trace amounts in blueberries.”

“Do blueberries come from comets?” co-host Pat Gray asked jokingly.

Duh, Pat.

“You didn’t realize that blueberries . . . look at them, they’re baby comets!” Glenn countered.

GLENN: Yeah. Yeah. So here's what's crazy. So you have Al Gore, 10 percent of the population just listening to that guy. And then on the flip side, you have -- I don't even know, 3 percent, 10 percent of the population that actually will listen to the news of this guy. Listen to this.

ALEX: You've had back pain before. Maybe you've had nerves that were cut off. This creates tingling. A lot of people have their feeling come back. I'm not going to make claims. Just research it. It's true. Organically based bio PQQ. And it's not technically organic.

(laughter)

PAT: One of his products.

Oh.

ALEX: The other stuff is synthetic. Completely lab made. This is made from organic sources, but the bacteria is GMO. I'll just tell you up front. But it's not like the super high tech stuff. It's a bacteria that's just been bred to be able to then see secrete and produce this. Just like beer is bacteria.

GLENN: Okay. All right.

ALEX: That's how the Japanese do it.

PAT: Right.

ALEX: It's bioidentical. This stuff is only found in comets and in trace amounts in blueberries.

(laughter)

GLENN: This is the world we live in now.

PAT: Stuff is only found in comets -- and in trace amounts of blueberries.

(laughter)

PAT: Well, and kumquats. Some kumquats have it.

STU: Every fifth kumquat.

PAT: What the hell. What is that? First of all, GMOs, to this guy and his audience, are the worst thing imaginable.

GLENN: Ever.

STU: Right. But he can make money off of them.

GLENN: But this GMO is different.

PAT: It's not a high-tech GMO. It's just -- it's a normal run-of-the-mill GMO.

GLENN: Exactly.

STU: That's how the Japanese do it.

GLENN: It's a low-tech GMO. It's like -- it's a poor man's GMO.

PAT: It's the kind of genetically modified organism that let's say cavemen developed.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Would have done. Or really, really, the guys who flunked out of, you know, chemistry and all of that, they just -- they're not smart enough -- in fact, they blew up their lab themselves just trying to make a milkshake a few years ago, but they're the ones who put this one together. It's not high-tech at all.

STU: No, you'll find them in comets and blueberries. And certain packages of Twizzlers have them.

GLENN: Wait. Wait.

PAT: Do blueberries come from comets? How did they get this substance only available on comets? How did that happen?

GLENN: Please, you didn't realize that -- you didn't realize that blueberries. Look at them. They're baby comets.

STU: That's true.

PAT: Okay. Right.

STU: That's true.

PAT: Baby purply sort of comets.

GLENN: Take a blueberry. Freeze it. Put it in space. You know, make it 65 million times larger.

STU: Maybe closer --

GLENN: What do you identify that as? A comet.

STU: Maybe it's just closer than we think. When they go across the sky, they look pretty small.

GLENN: Right.

STU: So maybe it's just this blueberry, and it's only like 40 feet up. You just don't realize it.

GLENN: 40 feet? Maybe it's just out of arm's-length. You're just -- you're pointing, and you're about an inch away. Look at that in the sky.

PAT: Oh, man.

STU: But, I mean, tell me -- because you listen to that clip. And that clip is from the John Oliver rant that he had on Alex Jones this weekend, which is actually -- even though I'm not a huge fan -- very funny. But if you look at that clip that we just played of Alex Jones, it's just non-stop disclaimers. He knows he's lying to his audience. And it's the same thing with Al Gore with Dr. Maslowski. We've played that clip how many times where he has so many disclaimers built into what he's saying, you know he knows what he's saying is alarmist or he's justifying something that he knows is untrue. But he just says it because he knows -- his audience is going to go along with it. When you're this far down this road, you never disagree with what the host is saying. That's amazing.

GLENN: This is -- we really have arrived at the time when I said you're not going to know who to believe. You're not going to know what to believe. Everything will be upside down. Nobody will have any credibility. I hope you have yours at that point. We're at that point. Do you have your credibility?

INSANITY: High schooler ARRESTED after not wearing mask at school tells her story

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

Jason Whitlock: Raiders coach fired by NFL as a ‘SIGNAL’ to others

Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden was forced to resign (fired) by the NFL on Monday due to 'misogynistic' and 'homophobic' language found in several of his old, private emails. But Jason Whitlock, sports writer and host of 'Fearless' on BlazeTV, tells Glenn that Gruden's words never should have resulted in his job lost: 'We should have accepted his apology and kept it moving.' But instead, Whitlock says the NFL chose to use Gruden as a 'signal' for all other employees who may oppose the football organization's current, far-left political stances: 'Taking over sports, taking over the NFL, is crucial to the goals of the left and what they're trying to do.'

How an ‘orchestrated’ revolution is bringing America TO ITS KNEES

Victor Davis Hanson, Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, joins Glenn to discuss his new book, 'The Dying Citizen.' He explains how America's hippies from the 1960s are the progressive elites running our institutions today and how their 'well orchestrated' moves have created a top-down revolution that's 'bringing us down to our knees.' So, what's the solution? Davis Hanson tells Glenn what we can do to push back against the far left today…

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.
