Alex Jones claims Las Vegas massacre was 'phony' — 'It's all part of this deal Trump's got with the Saudis'

Whatever happens in Alex Jones' head, stays in Alex Jones' head.

Red-faced radio host Alex Jones, who's always ready to accept a conspiracy theory, continued to push fabricated stories about last month's massacre in Las Vegas while at the same time taking the opportunity to dredge up the racist claim that President Obama wasn't born in the United States.

"Vegas is as phony as a three dollar bill or as Obama's birth certificate," he proclaimed on Monday's episode of "The Alex Jones Show."

Trump and the 'birther' claim

Trump has made remarks on multiple occasions in his past suggesting former President Barack Obama "doesn't have a birth certificate." Nearing the end of his campaign trail, Trump finally admitted in September 2016 that Obama "was born in the United States."

Here is a 2011 excerpt from his statement on the conspiracy theory surrounding the "birther" claim

"He doesn't have a birth certificate, or if he does, there's something on that certificate that is very bad for him. Now, somebody told me -- and I have no idea if this is bad for him or not, but perhaps it would be -- that where it says 'religion,' it might have 'Muslim.' And if you're a Muslim, you don't change your religion, by the way."

Trump and the wiretapping claim

On March 4, the president accused former President Barack Obama of wiretapping the phones at his New York home in Trump Tower in a series of Saturday morning tweets.

"I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election!," one tweet read.

FBI Director James Comey later renounced this claim at a rare public House Intelligence Committee hearing.

Trump: China created global warming

On November 6, 2012, Trump tweeted the following:

"The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive."

The issues of global warming and climate change have long been proved valid by the science community's vast majority.

Alex Jones' Infowars, Trump tie Sen. Ted Cruz's father to Kennedy assassination

An April 2016 article in Infowars -- a site affiliated with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones -- titled "WAS CRUZ’S FATHER LINKED TO THE JFK ASSASSINATION?" makes the case that Sen. Ted Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz, was linked to Lee Harvey Oswald, the man believed to have killed John F. Kennedy.

In May 2016, Trump brought up an Enquirer story featuring Cruz's father pictured with Oswald, saying, "I mean, what was he doing — what was he doing with Lee Harvey Oswald shortly before the death? Before the shooting? It’s horrible."

He brought the storyline up again one day after accepting the Republican presidential nomination in July 2016.

Trump: Obama "founded ISIS"

Trump touted his plan to "bomb the sh*t out of ISIS" many times while on the 2016 campaign stump -- and added to his ISIS rhetoric the claim that then-President Barack Obama "founded ISIS."

Trump outlined this claim in a Florida campaign speech:

"ISIS is honoring President Obama. He’s the founder of ISIS. He founded ISIS. I would say the co-founder would be Crooked Hillary Clinton."

Trump also suggested Obama was sympathetic to terrorists in June of 2016.

Trump suggests Justice Antonin Scalia was assassinated

"It's a horrible topic," Trump said of Justice Scalia's death during a radio interview with conservative host Michael Savage. At this point, Trump was entering a space in which Savage had already called for a Warren Investigation into Scalia's death -- the same type of investigation that looked into JFK's shooting. In that context, Trump continued his remarks, saying, "But they say they found a pillow on his face, which is a pretty unusual place to find a pillow. I can’t tell you what—I can’t give you an answer. You know, usually I like to give you answers. But I literally just heard it a little while ago. It’s just starting to come out now, as you know, Michael.”

Alex Jones on Hillary Clinton's mental state

On August 4, 2016, Alex Jones' Infowars published a video titled, "The Truth About Hillary's Bizarre Behavior," in which copy reads, "...Hillary’s conduct also strongly indicates she is a sociopath who has a total lack of empathy for other people."

Jones at one point in August 2016 commented on the system in which Trump would continually pick up talking points from his show, saying, "It is surreal to talk about issues here on air, and then word-for-word hear Trump say it two days later."

Trump: 2016 election is "rigged"

Weeks before 2016 Election Day, Trump appeared on FOX News with Sean Hannity, discussing how the election is rigged because of the "1.8 million people" who vote, even though they're dead.

“You have 1.8 million people who are dead, who are registered to vote, Trump said. "And some of them absolutely vote. Now, tell me how they do that.

After he was elected president, Trump also claimed that there was "serious voter fraud" in the 2016 election, and promised a major investigation into such occurrence.

Roger Stone: Chelsea Clinton needed plastic surgery to hide identity of real father

Longtime Trump friend and political adviser Roger Stone details in his book, "The Clintons' War on Women," that Chelsea Clinton needed "four plastic surgeries" to cover up the identity of her real father, who Stone claims is former Associate Attorney General Webb Hubbell.

According to a transcript provided by Media Matters for America, the Sandy Hook and 9/11 truther was talking to a woman who had called in about footage of a helicopter hovering over Las Vegas she had seen broadcast on Fox News, prompting Jones to discuss an FBI cover-up for some reason.

"Well, I know the FBI went and picked up the caller you heard earlier when he talked about it being an Islamic attack and there being shootings all over town and helicopters being used. And the FBI showed up and drugged the guy and then declared national security. He's had to leave the country just over that," said Jones.

The Austin, Texas-based radio producer continued to ramble on about the tragedy that left 58 dead and 546 injured after Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival on the night of Oct. 1, even roping in the commander-in-chief.

"They've been ordered not talk about it because it's all part of this deal that Trump's got with the Saudis," said Jones. "We'll see if that's really the case, but that was an Islamic terror attack from all the evidence we have."

The far-right conspiracist has previously claimed that Paddock was a liberal because he drank Pepsi ("I mean literally, conservatives do not drink — especially in the Obama era — conservatives drink Coca-Cola, if you drink soft drinks, liberals drink Pepsi. Now that's a big clue!") with connections to the group Antifa ("Clearly, it's the M.O., to trigger a helter-skelter revolution.")

Likewise, Jones has told his audience of millions that the shooter didn't act alone despite all law enforcement saying the contrary, offered that it was "scripted by deep state Democrats" and that even O.J. Simpson played a small role, citing his high-profile release from the High Desert State Prison nearby.

Said Jones earlier last month, "They released O.J. just 20 hours before the attack took place so all the media would come and be in place to cover this event."
