This series analyses the 2016 presidential campaign with recaps of Alex Jones Show interviews with Larry Nichols, a Clinton insider from Arkansas days, terminally ill with cancer, and Roger Stone, Trump insider and veteran of five presidential campaigns beginning in 1964. See parts 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 if you missed them.
Nichols co-created the 1994 film The Clinton Chronicles and Stone co-authored The Clintons’ War on Women, published in 2015.
The following interviews cover the time period from August 18 through to August 31. They concern Hillary’s health, Democrats’ accusations and anticipated voting irregularities. The investigative journalist Wayne Madsen also gave an interview during this time period, summarised below.
On Thursday, August 18, Alex Jones interviewed Larry Nichols. Hillary Clinton’s health was the first topic of conversation. Nichols said that Hillary, her campaign team and the media would turn this into a plea for sympathy from voters prior to the first encounter between her and Trump in the Commander-in-Chief forum on September 7.
Nichols had worked closely for several years with the Clintons in Arkansas. He knew this ploy, used often with great success.
On this point, in an earlier Nichols interview in the summer, he said that the Clintons were still setting the media narrative to ensure that people would see them as the underdog. He pointed out that The New York Times was the first major paper to mention the investigation into Hillary’s emails in 2015. Yet, together with Hillary’s campaign team, the paper gradually shifted the narrative to make her look like a victim being investigated unnecessarily.
Returning to Hillary’s health, Nichols said that her eyesight had always been very bad, even in Arkansas. He said that, even then, she had no peripheral vision and, as such, experienced problems in reading teleprompters.
As for concussions, he said that she has had them. He explained that, for the average person, it can take from six months to two years to notice the effects of a concussion and to recover from them.
Talk then turned to the emails. Nichols said the Clintons didn’t care because they were busy using the media to destroy Donald Trump:
I know. I wrote the playbook.
Russia came up next. Larry said that, geopolitically, it was:
a powderkeg about to go off.
He said that the Clintons have had a deep involvement with Russia. The uranium deal is one of them. I wrote about this and other close Clinton connections in Russia prior to the third debate on October 19. However, Nichols said that by making much ado about nothing in talking about Paul Manafort’s work in the Ukraine and falsely accusing Trump of having Russian connections, the Clinton camp were engaging in projection. Projection is accusing others of what you yourself are guilty of.
As for Paul Manafort’s work in the Ukraine, Nichols said that the State Department would certainly have been informed about it — because they would have had to approve it!
The conversation shifted to Putin. Nichols said that Putin feared a Trump victory, because that would mean he would lose all influence. Putin also fears that Trump would strengthen NATO, putting paid to his hope of ‘creating a new Russian Empire’.
As for Obama’s and Hillary’s talk about war with Russia, Nichols explained that they were after a power play. If missiles go off near Ukraine, the world will be that much closer to nuclear war. Nichols said that Obama and Hillary do not grasp the gravity of the situation. Furthermore, he said that Obama doesn’t even attend ‘80%’ of his national security meetings.
Trump was the final subject of conversation. Nichols said that people should ignore what the media were saying about his chances. Trump must ‘stay the course’. Nichols expected voter fraud and said he used to organise it himself in Arkansas. (This involved hiring buses and changes of shirt for everyone on board prior to arriving at each polling station.) Therefore, it must be stopped at state level. Nichols said that Trump must learn to fight the Clintons: attack instead of defend. The debates were coming up soon, and Nichols advised Trump to play heavily on Hillary’s health. (That never really happened. Instead Trump decided to focus on the undecided voters who wanted to see him as presidential.)
On Friday, August 19, Paul Joseph Watson interviewed Roger Stone. Paul Manafort‘s work in the Ukraine came up. Stone explained that the attacks on Manafort came from Sidney Blumenthal (an adviser to Hillary during her 2008 campaign) and a wealthy Ukrainian. Stone made it clear that there was ‘no evidence of wrongdoing’. Manafort worked for a political party there, not a person. Manafort resigned as soon as the Ukraine became an issue. Stone also held Corey Lewandowski partly responsible for spreading this false media narrative. As for Blumenthal, Stone said he was the one who blamed the Benghazi attack on that second-rate video.
The discussion turned to Hillary’s emails. Stone didn’t know if there would be an October surprise. However, he emphasised that the Russians were not involved in the leaks. Returning to Manafort briefly, Stone stated that Putin dislikes Manafort.
Stone and Watson discussed Trump‘s rally speech in Charlotte, NC, in which Trump said:
I will always tell you the truth … I will never put personal profit before national security.
Although Big Media downplayed and criticised it, Stone said it was:
the best speech I have heard him deliver.
Stone pointed out that people never hear that sort of talk from Hillary. He said Hillary has:
no stamina or health to be president.
Later in the broadcast, Lee Ann McAdoo interviewed investigative journalist Wayne Madsen. The Clinton-connected Teneo came up for discussion. Madsen said someone connected with Bill Clinton founded Teneo. He said that Huma Abedin was collecting a salary from them while working in the State Department. (At one point, she was paid not only by those two entities but also the Clinton Foundation.)
Madsen said that former security intelligence people were supporting Hillary.
He talked about Hillary’s ‘pay to play’, or bribery. For $5m, Hillary lobbied India to allow Walmart to open there. (Walmart is based in Arkansas.) Madsen said this bribery scheme was for:
the Clintons’ own personal enrichment.
Any aides who do not go along with it, he says, are thrown ‘under the bus’.
On August 31, Roger Stone appeared for another interview. Things were hotting up for him at that point. He said he was going to be investigated by the FBI for allegedly hacking the DNC. Stone said that those hacks came from Guccifer 2.0, not him, the Republicans or Trump.
Stone described the mess, geopolitically and personally. Soros would like to take over Ukraine and the Clintons have close ties to Russia and Putin. ‘Personal vituperation’ towards any opposition had become the order of the day, he said. Personal attacks against Hillary’s opponents would continue.
He said that vote rigging was sure to happen, although he was certain that Americans suspected that already. Regardless, he said that TPTB would proceed with the full force of the federal government, including Homeland Security, in trying to steal the election. Stone had just started StopTheSteal and called for volunteers to gather evidence as proof. He had also just started his personal website StoneColdTruth.com.
Stone explained that this was a ‘crucial juncture here’ where the Democrats were trying to set then dominate the election agenda. He thought that Julian Assange must have political dynamite somewhere in the leaked emails:
the equivalent of Watergate …
As such, the Democrats were weaving their narrative that Julian Assange was helping the Russians.
Of course, we never saw the rest of the emails, which stopped shortly before the election. They were due to drop until Christmas, with each day’s release becoming more incriminating in content. It is thought that the FBI and other government agencies put a stop to them with the co-operation of WikiLeaks. This move led, unintentionally, to the current public interest in Pizzagate, which greatly surpassed Spirit Cooking — a topic that went off the boil relatively quickly.
Stone ended the interview with these two quotes:
Trump is the peace candidate.
This is the Bush/Clinton combine [at work].
I remember what a tense time this was. Every day had its drama.
Intellectually, Trump voters thought he would win, however, nagging doubts persisted.
Because we all know how dastardly Democrats are.
