Infowars host Alex Jones was captured making revealing and uncharacteristic comments about former President Donald Trump in a video leaked Tuesday.
The professional peddler of conspiracy theories launched into a generally positive tirade about Trump when he made a mistake and then appeared to say what he really thought.
“Part of me, the selfish part, wishes I’d never met Donald Trump, wishes that I’d never met Roger Stone, because unlike previous things I’ve done that were game-changing, those were just time-space continuum reflections of the third big change I was going to be involved in, that was bringing Donald John Trump into awesome,” Jones said in the video.
“Just let me say that again, I said awesome, into office,” he added, noting his mistake and addressing the film crew.
“Because this is, you guys are asking really good questions, this gonna be a really good thing. But I’m gonna say it again in a minute,” Jones continued.
“It’s the truth, and I’m just going to say it. That I wish I never would have f***ing met Trump,” he said.
“I wish it never would have happened,” Jones continued. “And it’s not the attacks I’ve been through. I’m so sick of f***ing Donald Trump, man. God, I’m f***ing sick of him. And I’m not doing this because, like, I’m kissing his f***ing ass, you know. It’s, like, I’m sick of it.”
The video was published by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which said the clip was an outtake from a movie titled, “You Can’t Watch This.”
Jones has been a vehement and passionate Trump defender and was one of the prominent speakers at the U.S. Capitol before the lethal rioting on Jan. 6.
“We have only begun to resist the globalists. We have only begun our fight against their tyranny. They have tried to steal this election in front of everyone,” Jones said to Trump supporters at the Capitol. “I don’t know how this is all going to end, but if they want to fight, they better believe they’ve got one.”
Jones has been sued by the father of one of the victims at the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, over his claims that the event was staged and that the participants were crisis actors. Other family members of the victims have reported heinous harassment by those who believe the conspiratorial claims propagated by Jones.
Earlier in February, the families of some of the victims were given a green light by the Texas Supreme Court to continue their million-dollar lawsuit against Jones.

‘It is now time to open Texas 100%’]]>
The ratings are in for the 2021 Golden Globes, and it is not a pretty picture.
According to the Associated Press, Sunday night’s awards ceremony on NBC drew in 6.9 million viewers — an eye-popping 64% less than 2020’s Golden Globes, which pulled in 18.4 million people before the U.S. entered widespread lockdowns due to the coronavirus.
The revelation led Vanity Fair to ask, “How will the Golden Globes recover from 2021?” with Yohana Desta writing, “the hybrid event turned out to be too tough a sell for viewers.”
This year’s show was hosted by “Saturday Night Live” alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and included several signature “woke” lectures from actors, which audiences have come to expect. However, many artists delivered their acceptance speeches virtually, as pandemic measures kept them from attending in person.
One grievance mentioned more than once from the stage — including by the hosts — was against the organization itself that runs the Golden Globes, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, after the Los Angeles Times revealed that the group does not have any black voting members.
Last year, the pre-lockdown event was brimming full with Hollywood and corporate elites in the audience, when British comedian Ricky Gervais famously delivered a scolding of his own to the liberal crowd, telling them:
“So, if you do win an award tonight, don’t use it as a platform to make a political speech. You’re in no position to lecture the public about anything. You know nothing about the real world. Most of you spent less time in school than Greta Thunberg. So, if you win, come up, accept your little award. Thank your agent and your god, and f*** off!”
Axios reported Tuesday that former President Donald Trump’s speech Sunday night at the Conservative Political Action Conference came close to matching the Golden Globes in viewers, with Trump pulling in 6.7 million people.
The AP reported that Fox News’ coverage of the former president’s speech, the first he has made since leaving office, was “by far the most-watched cable program last week.”
In his speech, Trump lambasted Republican lawmakers who voted for conviction during his second impeachment trial, telling the crowd in Florida, “Instead of attacking me and more importantly the voters of our movement, top establishment Republicans in Washington should be spending their energy in opposing [Joe] Biden, [Nancy] Pelosi, [Chuck] Schumer, and the Democrats.”]]>

One of the most popular news anchors in Phoenix walked away from her job Tuesday, and she obliterated the country’s biased establishment media on the way out.
KSAZ-TV’s Kari Lake, who has been half of the Fox affiliate’s successful ratings duo for two decades, announced in a Twitter post with a video posted to Rumble that she would walk away at the top of her game. She left nothing on the table, blowing the whistle on the bias that has rotted American news media from top to bottom for so many years.
A message for my Arizona friends and our loyal Fox10 viewers. https://t.co/5Aq1p3uggx
— Kari Lake (@KariLake) March 2, 2021
“Twenty-two years ago, Fox 10 hired me and paired me up with John Hook to bring you the news every night. Shortly after becoming a team, we jumped in the ratings and we’ve held the number-one spot for almost all of our time together,” began Lake. “Anyone who’s worked in TV news can tell you that is not an easy feat, and it’s one I’m extremely proud of — and I thank you for that.”
Indeed, those who have worked in TV news, and especially in local markets, know that the dynamics are always shifting in the never-ending battle for ratings. News directors come and go, photojournalists and producers come and go and competing networks are always trying to topple the leader in a game of king of the hill.
What many people don’t see, and you can’t see it unless you’ve worked in local television news, is that leftism permeates many of these corporate-owned and supposedly community newsrooms. Anchors and reporters are overwhelmingly liberal.
The most ardently leftist of these people generally seem to be the show producers — the people who organize the programs, decide what the news is and then write or co-write the news copy that anchors read off the teleprompter.
“Sadly, journalism has changed a lot since I first stepped into a newsroom, and I’ll be honest: I don’t like the direction it’s going,” Lake said. “The media needs more balance in coverage and a wider ranger of viewpoints represented in every newsroom at every level and in each position.”
She then uttered the one statement which probably solidified her as an actual journalist: She was no longer proud of what she did.
“In the past few years, I haven’t felt proud to be a member of the media. I’m sure there are other journalists out there who feel the same way. I found myself reading news copy that I didn’t believe was fully truthful, or only told part of the story,” she said.
“And I began to feel that I was contributing to the fear and division in this country by continuing on in this profession.”
With that, she left her post as one of the faces of the most popular newscasters in the country’s 11th-biggest media market in the country.
“It’s been a serious struggle for me and I no longer want to do this job anymore,” she said. “So I’ve decided the time is right to do something else, and I’m leaving Fox 10. I thank Fox for their understanding as I’ve come to this decision, and I am grateful for the opportunities they provided for me to cover so many big stories over the years.”
“As I close this chapter of my career, there will probably be some hit pieces written about me. Not everyone is dedicated to telling the truth, but thankfully, many of you have figured that out. I promise you, if you hear it from my lips, it will be truthful,” Lake went on.
“It is scary walking away from a good job and a successful career, especially in difficult times. I know God has my back and will guide me to work that aligns with my values.”
What Lake did took a lot of personal courage. Most TV journalists will work their entire careers angling to get into the anchor’s chair. The few who make it then enjoy a large amount of community respect and recognition — and a nice salary.
Lake walked away from all of it and told those who probably suspected they could trust her that they were right. She also told them they are being deceived by an industry that is inundated by leftists.
These places are staffed probably 80-20 liberal versus conservative, minimum, and most of those liberals tend to be from somewhere else as they ride from one city to another and pad their résumés. The result is often a biased and sterile on-air product made by people who resent their audiences and know very little about the areas in which they live.
Lake predicted there would be some “hit pieces” written about her, and she was correct. The Arizona Republic quickly dismissed her in a hit piece noting she had left her job.
“While no one can pretend journalists are perfect, there are also members of the media who are justifiably proud of their work in the last few years — for example, when it came to reporting on former President Donald Trump and the 2020 election,” the paper’s Bill Goodykoontz wrote.
Goodykoontz went on to praise censorship of doctors and others online, and concluded Lake had “done her share of responsible journalism” while smearing her as being “notable for controversies.”
“Lake shared disinformation about the First Amendment after Twitter and Facebook suspended Trump’s accounts for his posting of misleading information and lies after his words inspired the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol,” he wrote.
In reality, it was probably tweets such as these that made Lake “controversial”:
Rest in peace, Rush. https://t.co/h83mOBPZ1g

What Lake did was not think like her peers, and not like Goodykoontz and the rest of the biased leftist media. Arizonans are not better off with her resignation. But her pubic exit brings a silver lining: It provides confirmation from someone at the top of the local TV hill that leftists have killed honest journalism in the country — even in their own neighborhoods.

The so-called Equality Act that Democrats are trying to push through Congress has been criticized as list of LGBTQ agenda points forced on unwilling Americans that would nullify the First Amendment’s protection of religion.
Now a legal team reports a nightmare experienced by a bride-to-be that could become common if the Equality Act is adopted.
Liberty Counsel documented the experience of “Ann.”
She contacted Liberty Counsel for legal assistance after she went with her mother and sister to a bridal store to try on wedding gowns, the report said.
“She called and booked an appointment with a salesperson. When ‘Ann’ arrived, the salesperson was wearing a COVID mask, dress, tights and heels. The salesperson proceeded to help ‘Ann’ in the dressing room, touching private areas of her body while helping her in and out of wedding dresses,” Liberty Counsel reported.
It was then that her sister and mother pulled her aside “and notified her that the salesperson was a man,” the report said.
She “had never undressed in front of a man and felt violated and deceived by the bridal store,” Liberty Counsel reported. And when her fiancée later went to the store to confront the store owner, the owner defended the employee and said she was required by law to treat the man as if he was a woman.
It’s not the first such catastrophe to follow the agenda of the Equality Act.
Liberty Counsel reported in 2018 it represented Mrs. “H,” who encountered a man in the women’s locker room of Planet Fitness in Florida.
“The man, dressed in gray sweatpants and a tank top, was facing the mirror and pretending to apply makeup. Mrs. ‘H.,” a survivor of a previous violent rape attempt, needed to use the restroom and politely asked him to leave,” Liberty Counsel said.
“Instead, he smirked and watched her in the mirror where he had a full view of every woman entering or exiting the shower and locker area,” the report said. “When Mrs. ‘H. complained to the staff, her membership was revoked.”
Liberty Counsel explained the science that the proposal defies.
“Immutable biological differences and unique attributes between sexes will become illusory because birth sex is irrelevant under the ‘Equality Act.’ Therefore, women and girls face increased risk of harassment and violence by predatory males who will use ‘gender identity’ to enter their private spaces. Biological men who subjectively assert they ‘identify as a woman’ will be able to use women’s restrooms, dressing rooms, locker rooms, and showers. Men will be legally allowed to bunk with women on overnight stays at church, mission, or school events and at domestic abuse shelters or in prison cells,” Liberty Counsel said.
The bill changes the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to create “sexual orientation, gender identity” as protected classes throughout federal law.
Liberty Counsel said it “erases any sex-based protections for women.”
The Senate version “includes the entire universe of about 550 paraphilias outside of LGBT – one of which is pedophilia (euphemistically called ‘minor attracted persons’).”
“This so-called Equality Act will set back the gains made by women in sports, invade their private spaces, and place them at risk,” said Liberty Counsel Founder and Chairman Mat Staver said. “It is a slap in the face to women and girls who are entitled to safety and privacy. This bill gives males ‘identifying as females’ legal access to use female bathrooms, locker rooms, and all public facilities.”

After 40 days offstage, Donald Trump returned to the national spotlight on Sunday, and not a moment too soon.
His rip-roaring, 90-minute address to CPAC covered many familiar themes, building to the conclusion that “one of the most urgent issues facing the Republican Party is that of ensuring fair, honest and secure elections.”
Trump’s clarion call could not be more timely, as Nancy Pelosi’s Congress is set to pass a bill that would enshrine Democrat ballot stuffing into federal law forever. Among its many bad ideas, H.R. 1 would require automatic and same-day voter registration, prohibit voter ID, forbid signature matching and require every state to accept mail-in ballots arriving 10 days late.
“We need one election day,” Trump pushed back, “not 45, not 30; one day. And the only people that should be allowed to vote by mail are people that can be proven to be either very sick, or out of the country, or military where they can’t do it. One day,” he repeated.
The kicker was that Trump is not merely begging Republicans to address the many irregularities that occurred in the presidential election. He is warning that Republicans who fail to act on this issue will face defeat in their primaries next year.
Trump recounted how successful he has been in electing candidates who support his agenda and defeating Republicans who stand in the way of making America great again. He even called out by name Trump-haters within the Republican Party who need to start looking for a second career after politics.
Two days before Trump spoke, liberal pundit Bill Maher warned his fellow lefties what was in store for them: “The shark is not gone. We need a bigger boat.”
No boat is big enough to salvage the careers of Republicans who tried to impeach Trump, or who stand in the way of reforms to fix what went wrong in 2020. Those Republicans have not only defied Trump; they never lifted a finger to protect the integrity of our elections.
Instead, they echo false Democratic talking points by pretending there was no evidence of election fraud in 2020. These anti-Trump Republicans likewise fail to see how strongly opposed they are now by Americans who once voted for them.
On Monday, Georgia House Republicans finally got the message, despite being inactive the past few months. After kicking away the presidential election and two U.S. Senate seats, state representatives passed a bill for election integrity by a party-line vote of 97 to 72.
The Georgia House bill still allows extensive mail-in voting and is weaker than a Senate version that would properly curtail absentee voting. In the recent elections there, no meaningful identification was required for millions of mail-in votes, unrequested ballots were sent out and ballot drop boxes were placed at unsecure locations.
Voting was done on multiple Sundays prior to an election, with mobile voting buses to herd Democratic voters to cast ballots under the watchful eyes of the political bosses who rounded them up. Private liberal organizations were allowed to fund elections there.
Republicans long have commanded most state legislatures, yet have not done enough to reduce election fraud. Between 2016 and 2020, Pennsylvania and other Republican state legislatures invited even more fraud by expanding mail-in voting.
The thunderous applause that greeted Trump on Sunday as he made election integrity the top priority for our country puts every Republican on notice: Stand in the way and risk losing your primary next year.
Trump’s specific proposals included ending early voting and most mail-in voting, as Phyllis Schlafly called for years ago. For too long Republican politicians have shrugged their shoulders and refused to stop the flood of insecure, harvested ballots that cancel the legitimate votes cast in person on Election Day.
Meanwhile, on Tuesday the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Brnovich v. Democratic National Committee, which could decide whether states can clean up their elections without being enjoined by activist courts. In past cases, federal courts have blocked election reforms on the pretext that proper procedures somehow have a disparate impact on minority voters.
The questioning by justices at the hearing went well for the side of election integrity. Liberals mischaracterize the landmark case as putting “civil rights” at risk if states are allowed to ban ballot harvesting, by which political operatives collect thousands of ballots from people who do not show up to vote in person.
The only civil right at issue in election reform is that of all Americans to an honest vote count. We are long past the time for lip service, and Republicans who obstruct cleaning up the election process should expect a strong upcoming primary challenge by a Trump-endorsed opponent.
