Yes, Virginia, there are tornado-truthers

“Who knows if they did. You know, that’s the thing, we don’t know.” – Conspiracy-theorist radio host Alex Jones, on whether the US government created the tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma this past week.

Conspiracy-theorist, and radio host, Alex Jones says that it’s possible the US government created and steered the devastating Moore, Oklahoma tornado this past Monday.

Media Matters reports that on his radio show this past Tuesday, Moore walked through how you can spot a faux-tornado:

Alex Jones, demonstrating with his hands how the government's small planes fly between the clouds to create a tornado.

I don’t know if this is a weather-weapon or not, but they can, with the right weather conditions, they can create and steer groups of tornadoes. The question is, were helicopters, cuz they use those up close, and small fixed-wing aircraft seen in and around the weather patterns.

Like if people fifty miles out of these storm systems, they see aircraft in and around the clouds, spraying and doing things. If you saw that, you’d better bet your bottom dollar that they did this. But, who knows if they did. That’s the thing, we don’t know.

But that won’t stop him from suggesting it!

Jones is also a Boston Marathon Bombing truther as well, saying this past April that the bombing “stinks to high heaven” of being a “false flag.”


I actually had to look the term “false flag” up, here’s what I found:

False flag (or black flag) describes covert military or paramilitary operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities, groups or nations than those who actually planned and executed them. Operations carried during peace-time by civilian organisations, as well as covert government agencies, may by extension be called false flag operations if they seek to hide the real organisation behind an operation.

Alexander Abad-Santos over at the Atlantic Wire points to the home of an entire crop of tornado-truthers at the aptly-named site “Before It’s News.”  They walk us through how the “storm” really went down.

You perhaps won’t be surprised to find out that the tornado is actually all the Jews’ fault.  Apparently the Jews (wearing yarmulkes and sporting “big noses ” – I am not making this up) own huge devices which can create hologram tornadoes, like on Star Trek:

1.Prior to 3pm there, millitary and police went door to door in the area that is now completely demolished.  They told all residence to leave the area and head north.

2.  On there way out they saw multiple bulldozers and wrecking ball like machines moving into their neighborhoods.

3.  One of my friends saw a huge projector/hollogram output device the size of a building.  He said while driving away he saw this projector turn on and it created a hologram tornado in the sky that eventually blocked out the area that was supposedly “hit”.

4.  One of my friends that was nearby, said that while the hollogram tornado passed overhead, all of the bulldozers and equipment began demolishing EVERYTHING!  He said explosions were also heard.  He said that every person driving a bulldozer and demolishing houses was wearing a yamica and have a big nose.  Also the bulldozers had an israeli construction company on the side.  He said it was very hgard to see this activity going on, because the hollogram tornado was blocking the view mostly.

5. All of my friends are now being told to shut up and not to talk about what they seen.  They are saying that if they dont stick to the official “:tornado” story that they will not receive any type of financial support, relief, etc.. to rebuild their homes.

6.  One of my friends heard a self-proclaimed zionist talking to a shapeshifting white guy.   They said that all the earthquake in oklohoma lately are a result of massive underground contruction.  they were talking about how the Jewish race wishes to expand rapidly and that they are building massive Jewish settlements and Palestinian slave labor camps under Oklohoma…the reason… supposedly   ak-la ham aer, which sound like oklohoma, means “Jews are the best, screw the rest” in hebrew.

I’m pretty sure that, other than the hologram tornado and the Jews, this is the plot to “Super 8.” (Though, let’s face it, the Jews might have been behind Super 8 too.)  Or maybe it was that guy who directed the Wizard of Oz.

And let me just say, I’d love to meet that “shapeshifting white guy.”  As everyone knows, shapeshifting black guys are a dime a dozen, but a white guy who can change form into a squirrel or a rock would be awesome. (I’d of course have him change him into Jake Gyllenhaal, with a few adjustments, but that’s for another post…)

And you of course remember the Sandy Hook truthers, who believe that the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut this past December was either a hoax that didn’t happen at all, or it was a secret government plot because the AR-15 that Adam Lanza used to shoot the 20 small children was actually found locked in the trunk of his car, so he couldn’t have done it!  Except that the AR-15 was not found locked in his trunk, and in fact hit was the weapon used to kill the children.

And yet, as a reader just noted, they won’t believe in climate change…

    All this from the people who tell us that government is too corrupt and inefficient to handle anything more difficult than handing out free cheese.
    Which is it: is the federal government the super-effective jackbooted thugs that secretly start tornadoes or an inept, corrupt organization that can’t even deliver the mail and shouldn’t handle health care?

    Mostly gold coins.

    Let me guess:gold coins and penis enhancement herbs (all natural, of course), home flipping DVDs and how to get filthy rich in your kitchen (on 15 minutes a day) using secret Internet tubes?

    And then put up Barbie for sale on E-Bay?

  11. HolyMoly says:

    You know, maybe he’s onto something.

    The government practice of awarding subsidies to oil companies, while only a mere pittance is allocated to develop alternative sources of energy, helps create the mammoth storms we’re starting to see more frequently now. At least partial culpability rests with Congress, whose members — from both parties — are in Big Oil’s back pocket. That would include many if not all of the politicians who Jones considers to be stand-up guys and gals.

    A broken clock is right twice a day, after all.

  16. karmanot says:

    Do they ever wonder why God hates Republican/Teaparty neighborhoods? The logical crazy conclusion is that liberals are directing tornadoes, because Mr. God would never do that.

  17. karmanot says:

    What a great idea—-better than my online Barbie funeral business…..some ashes in a pink match box. They send in the Barbie and pay PO and handling for the ashes.

    I read a story the other day about how Bill Nye (the Science Guy) caught all kinds of hell from some fundies when he pointed out that Genesis was wrong when it said that God put two lights in the sky, one the sun and the other being the moon — because all the moon does is reflect the sun.

  20. BillFromDover says:

    “Who knows if they did. You know, that’s the thing, we don’t know.” he opined when walking out of the Twister experience at Universal Studies in Orlando.

    I seen it created with my own eyes, he intoned!

  21. zorbear says:

    What does country music have to do with it?

  22. BillFromDover says:


    Now I understand why Pat and God collaborated to invent blow-back.

  23. Do these people even believe in gravity? Do they believe the earth revolves around the sun? You have to wonder…

  24. BillFromDover says:

    And all this time I thought my donations were supposed to be used to put another satellite in orbit to spread the word of God even further to those in remote regions that have neither electricity or teevees.

    My bad!

    I would like to think that wingnutisms are just modern day supermarket tabloids,but these people say this stuff to puposely sway stupid people politically.

    Obama’s a muslim

    The Earth is only 6000 years old

    Climate change is a hoax

    Jews/Obama/Liberals are causing tornadoes in Oklahoma.

    Obama is a Marxist

    With so many natural disasters happening in and around wingnut areas,you would think that they would take their own hints.

    Matthew 25:42 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: 25:43 I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. 25:44 Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? 25:45 Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

  27. nicho says:

    All the gays get at one end of town — and blow. That’s what causes the tornadoes.

  28. nicho says:

    Tele-preachers make a good living getting people to send in money for “prayer cloths.” The guy prays over a bunch of cloth his wife or teenage girlfriend buys at the WalMart. They cut it into squares. The guy says a homemade prayer over it. Then, thousands of people send him $10-25 rach (plus shipping and handling) to send it to them. Cures toe fungus, homosexuality, anal warts, the flu, tuberculosis, and a host of other illnesses.

  29. BeccaM says:

    What Samizdat says below. Report ’em to the state att’y general’s office.

  30. BeccaM says:

    Let’s not forget, it’s the International Gay Agenda Conspiracy behind these hurricanes. Pat Robertson said so!

  31. BeccaM says:

    I believe that’s Glenn Beck’s theory. The two of them — Jones and Beck — have had a long-standing feud, where Jones regularly accused Beck of stealing his ideas and show concepts, and Beck (oddly enough, to his credit) essentially feels that Jones is a public embarrassment who discredits every conservative or libertarian notion he associates himself with. One of the latest of these last was Beck saying that Jones was hurting the pro-gun movement by claiming the recent high-profile shootings were the result of psy-op mind control experiments by the government.

  32. BeccaM says:

    Judging from the advertising over on Jones’ website, I’d say these are the kinds of ignorant rubes who wholeheartedly deserve to be parted from their money.

    This guy makes Art Bell seem sane and reasonable.

  33. BillFromDover says:

    Or shot by an FBI agent… talk about karma!

  34. BillFromDover says:

    Hint: just look for people with big noses.

    After all, if it works for all Arabs, whose to argue?

  35. BillFromDover says:

    And I don’t suppose that it ever occurred to any of them why we never see tornadoes in Iraq and Afghanistan, but only the Bible belt?

  36. BillFromDover says:

    And, for whatever reason (hubris, perhaps), intervened to save THEM from certain death from tornadoes.

    Do these people ever wonder why God decided to spare them and slaughter innocent children instead?

  37. BillFromDover says:

    There are some conspiracies that your average bagger will buy without a second thought because… well, they are basically baggers and are not only more than willing, but avid to create their own reality.

    But tornado machines controlled by Jews with big noses, big nosed mothas piloting helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft (not sure why they left out rockets here); as SNL would say… Really?

    How fucking sad is it that in this day and age there are still apparently enough industrial-strength ignorant, cave-dwellers eager to pay this snake-oil salesman’s salary?

  38. cole3244 says:

    you’re correct, my bad, thanks.

  39. nicho says:

    First of all, you have to remember that a majority of American thinks that Jesus helps them win the Friday night football game, that angels push them (some of them) out of the way or onrushing cars, and that there is some significant difference between Republicans and Democrats.

  40. nicho says:

    No, that was just a conspiracy theory.

  41. Well any good conspiracy can’t have just one!

  42. BeccaM says:

    So they could fake the Apollo landings and kill thousands of NASA astronauts without ever being discovered*.

    (* = Actual Jones-promoted conspiracy theory.)

  43. Naja pallida says:

    I think it’s all about desensitization. When he says something, we laugh because anyone with any functioning frontal cortex realizes that it’s absurd. But when the real things, like the recording of ALL our phone conversations, or unilaterally assassinating children, or who knows what else, we shrug it off as just another conspiracy theory.

  44. NorthAlabama says:

    please, please, please, give this guy a hour show in primetime on faux news!

  45. Naja pallida says:

    This government weather control actually isn’t a new conspiracy theory. I got it from a crazy relative about five years ago, only their explaination of it was that government could control the weather from the International Space Station, and they were creating hurricanes.

  46. zerosumgame0005 says:

    oh good lord! This is ripped-off from the FICTIONAL novel “The Jesus Factor”! what a bunch of simpletons

  47. Or maybe it was that guy who directed the Wizard of Oz.

    But that was like five different people!

  48. nicho says:

    OK — here’s my conspiracy theory. People like Alex Jones work for the Powers That Be. You put a few like him out there. Then, if someone discovers a real conspiracy on the part of the PTB and try to point it out, you are immediately lumped in with Alex Jones and others his ilk. That leaves the conspirators free to operate with impunity.

    For heaven’s sake, if we have a Democratic president who is willing to murder a 16-year-old American-born youngster for no other reason than that he wanted to — and they admit it — what the hell aren’t they telling us?

  49. Dave of the Jungle says:

    I am.

  50. BeccaM says:

    I’m thinking more Jim Jones

  51. People [shrugs] says:

    This form of lunacy is sadly quite prevalent.

    Google: HAARP

    Then remember that the band that headline the recent London Olympics named a very popular record of theirs: HAARP. Exposing millions to this lunacy.

    People are rejecting reality in droves.

  52. JayRandal says:

    Not science fiction just something that should be contemplated. Alex Jones thinks our government knows how to modify weather but only to use it to destroy towns and to
    kill people. WHY he loses whatever credibility from anything else he investigates.

  53. cole3244 says:

    bob jones wannabe.

  54. BeccaM says:

    There’s no curing crazy when it’s eagerly embraced.

  55. HeilMary1 says:

    Hypocrite Jones and his wife also use birth control for their own convenience and welfare, but they blast anyone else as “racist baby killers for Margaret Sanger” if they use birth control for the same reasons as the Jonses.

  56. BeccaM says:

    Yes, seriously. Worse, there are people who believe Jones, and not just a few.

  57. BeccaM says:

    Undermine his credibility?

    It’s not possible to undermine something a person completely lacks.

  58. HeilMary1 says:


  59. perljammer says:

    Weather modification. Right. Nothing could possibly go wrong there. Good thing it’s in the realm of science fiction.

  60. perljammer says:

    … and an estimated 7% of Americans believe that Elvis is still alive.

  61. PeteWa says:

    I knew those whacky all powerful Jews who already control the media and the banks were looking to expand and conquer, I just had no idea they had set their sites on OK and had perfected Hologram Tornado tech!

    I plan on fighting them at least until they deploy the Star of David (gold leafed, natch) 50′ tall Dradlebots of Doom… then I will throw myself on their tender mercies and ask if I can be one of Josh Bowman’s house boys.

  62. JayRandal says:

    Alex Jones goes nutty at times especially about weather disasters and earthquakes. His conspiracy
    theory about Boston Marathon bombing has some validity. Craft International paramilitary agents were present at Marathon for unknown reasons. In fact some of them had backpacks at same locations of both explosions. Chechen brothers could have been set up as patsies. Anyway Jones undermines his credibility whenever he yells conspiracy about weather disasters.

    It would be prudent for Federal government to ultimately try to do weather modification to prevent tornadoes from forming. Would be stupid to cause them. I believe Alex Jones would be wise to stop
    being homophobic and to support gun restrictions too. His threats to gun down FBI agents coming to
    his house to get him could result in his fears becoming reality for him in being arrested and prosecuted.

  63. karmanot says:

    Those are liberal tornadoes trying to suck the gold out of patriot homes!

  64. karmanot says:

    Alex Jones is the most informed amoeba on the internets!

  65. The_Medusa says:

    Serilously? Or did have you taken up creative writing, John? And we are the test audience. Cause it hurts my heart and head to know people that spout this kind of baloney are walking around among us and not getting their meds regular and all.

  66. samizdat says:

    Your state’s attorneys general office should be notified.

  67. UncleBucky says:

    So, if the Alex Jones’s are right, why does Hollywood need all those special effects crews?

    Oh, yeah, that’s all fake, too.

    (My head hurts. But that’s due to a Z-ray gun…. yikes!)

  68. Drew2u says:

    Anyone else receive a “SCARY AUTOMATED MESSAGE!!” from 888-981-6499 pleading for donations because tornadoes?
    Any way of seeing/reporting it as a scam?
