We continue our serialisation of the 2016 article, The Strange Relationship of Infowars Alex Jones, Donald Trump and Roger Stone……
Donald Trump needs outsider credentials and Trump’s long time friend Roger Stone knows just the man……
Alex Jones is Trump’s biggest cheerleader and his influence, like it or not, is playing a big part in the trajectory of this U.S. election cycle. So much so that Trump’s “ex campaign manager” is regularly popping up on Jones daily Infowars radio show (which is also televised live on the web) with exclusive “inside baseball” reports from the Trump campaign. It could very well be that Roger Stone understands that the burgeoning anti-establishment, right wing patriot tea party constituency, could be the deciding factor in this U.S. election cycle.
Stone proclaiming he is an ex-Trump insider, now fighting the ‘outsiders’ cause, outside of the Trump camp, gives Trump plausible deniability of not being too close to Jones and his wilder flights of conspiracy theory, whilst at the same time giving Trump the anti-establishment credentials required for his run and a voice inside the conspiracy movement. For Stone to claim that he himself is anti-establishment is a wheeze that only the most ardent of Jones believers could fall for. He has worked on campaigns responsible for the election of Nixon, Reagan and W Bush. Arguably the three presidents who have done more to trash the U.S. constitution and wage war against their own citizens and those of other countries, via a variety of means, than any others in history.
A visit to Roger Stone’s Wikipedia entry is highly instructive, we learn that:
In the first grade, he broke into politics to further John F. Kennedy’s presidential campaign:
“I remember going through the cafeteria line and telling every kid that Nixon was in favor of school on Saturdays…It was my first political trick”.
When he was a junior and vice president of the student government at a high school in northern Westchester County, New York, he manipulated the ouster of the president and succeeded him. Stone recalled how he ran for election as president for his senior year:
“[I] built alliances and put all my serious challengers on my ticket. Then I recruited the most unpopular guy in the school to run against me. You think that’s mean? No, it’s smart.”
Stone has built a career out of manipulation, underhand techniques and lying. He’s a natural bedfellow, for both Trump and Jones.
It’s a win-win for everyone. Jones gets the ‘respectability’ of having the Republican presidential nominee as an endorser of his brand and with that increased ratings, advertising revenues and customers for his infowars life, health product range. The association by proxy of Stone with Jones serves to give Trump a bona fide boost to his image as an outsider not of the political elite (quite a feat for a billionaire from New York, wouldn’t you say?) and Stone once again burnishes his reputation as a man that will do and say anything and make alliances with anyone to get his job done, a ruthless and efficient political operator second to none in his field. That field being the field of lying.
