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, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 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.
Today’s post covers interviews with both men at the end of October through to early November prior to the election on Tuesday, November 8.
Roger Stone spoke with Alex Jones on Friday, October 28. That day, at 13:42 EST, FBI director James Comey announced a resumption of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. This was because the NYPD had seized Anthony Weiner’s personal computer — which his wife Huma Abedin, Hillary’s long-time confidante, shared — for an investigation into his sexting to underage females. The NYPD discovered 650,000 emails with information related to the US government. The NYPD kept a copy of the data and called in the FBI who took over the investigation.
Before I get to Stone, Mike Krieger from Liberty Blitzkrieg echoed what many Americans thought, having taken most of their information from Big Media and manipulated polling. By this time, the 2005 Billy Bush tape from Access Hollywood which the Washington Post released on October 7, had been played and discussed countless times. It fit the ‘Trump can’t win’ narrative beautifully. But now that Hillary’s emails were back into the mix (emphasis in the original):
I think the reopening of the FBI investigation is enough of a black swan to materially change the course of this race.
Clinton supporters will read this and think I’m insane. They will think this because they are anticipating a landslide victory for Hillary … I felt that the video recording of Trump’s vulgar commentary was enough to put those people into the absentee or third party column, despite millions of Americans looking for an excuse to vote for Trump due to the well understood awfulness of Hillary. This has changed, and voters now have the excuse they needed to vote Trump.
That reason is simple. The problems with Hillary Clinton will never go away. They will always resurface or new problems will emerge, and it has nothing to do with a “vast rightwing conspiracy” (or Putin). It has to do with her. It has to do with the fact that her and her husband are career crooks, warmongers, and shameless looters of the American public. This re-opening of the FBI investigation just hammers all of that home for everyone. We know what 4 years of Hillary will look like. It’ll be Obama cronyism on steroids, plus endless investigations with a side of World War 3. I don’t think people want that, and so more Americans than the pundits realize will take a gamble on Trump.
Stone told Jones:
Donald Trump is picking up momentum in this race.
Regardless of what published polls said, nearly all showing Hillary in the lead, this was evidently true.
As to the email scandal, Stone harked back to Watergate, which was small potatoes by comparison:
Nixon was removed for dirty tricks. The Clintons have not been held to the same standard … We have no proof that Nixon knew of the break-in.
Jones asked whether Stone thought the election would be stolen at this point. Stone replied that the result might be
a knife in the back for one Barack Obama
with regard to Obamacare, the costs of which would be crippling many Americans’ wallets in 2017:
This [event] is moving Trump’s way … and has lit a prairie fire.
Stone cited Steve Bannon, who said:
This is epic!
The circulation among the online community of WikiLeaks and James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas videos had produced the desired, ‘incredible’ result in red-pilling voters, who were seeing that, in Stone’s words:
Greed is a key, key issue.
As for the media:
The old media are losing power rapidly … Cable media are now a dinosaur.
As for November 8, Stone said he did not know what would happen. He hoped the Democrats and the media would be finished, nonetheless, they would:
go down hard.
His personal view was:
I think he is going to win. The late momentum is with Trump.
Especially in Florida:
The Trump campaign is on the move.
Stone said he would be writing a book about the whole campaign. (The Making of the President 2016 will be on sale from January 24.)
The weekend was a mad one.
On October 28, Huma Abedin burst into tears following Comey’s announcement. She could be in big trouble. It should also be noted that Preet Bharara is the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York who was leading the investigation into her husband. Bharara is fearless. He has successfully prosecuted financial institutions, mobsters and politicians.
James O’Keefe put out a video which revealed how Clinton operative David Brock’s Media Matters was successful in removing Roger Stone from cable news altogether:
Early voters who had cast a ballot for Hillary returned to their polling stations asking if they could change their votes. This was possible, under certain conditions, in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Michigan.
Caring leftists assaulted a homeless black woman who was guarding Trump’s Hollywood star, which had been vandalised by James Otis, an heir to the Otis Elevator Company fortune. (It has since been repaired and police have been guarding it.) The linked video shows that, oddly enough, Telemundo were on the scene, parked at the kerb, which indicates the attack was planned in advance. (It took weeks for Trump aide and lawyer Michael Cohen to locate her. Trump wanted to make sure the woman was sheltered. She now has a room of her own.)
On an agitprop note, which turned out to be surprisingly successful, The_Donald and 4chan launched an anti-Hillary series of spoof campaign posters under the theme #DraftOurDaughters, playing on new legislation that will do just that. This is the convincing ‘campaign video’ on the topic. Joking aside, Clinton does support the legislation. Combined with posts on Facebook and a huge trend on Twitter with numerous graphics using the Clinton campaign colours and designs, many voters decided to vote for Trump.
WikiLeaks continued to drop up until the election. On October 31, Stone gave another interview to Alex Jones and termed the content ‘genius’. One of the drops around that time revealed that Clinton operatives John Podesta and Doug Band were playing with stock options. Yet, the Democrats accused Donald Trump of doing the same. Stone said:
Stone looked further into Abedin and said that Muslim Minority Affairs, to which she and her family are linked, is part of a larger group connected to 9/11. Stone said the journal is Egyptian and the Abedins are Saudis.
As for WikiLeaks, he said that the media would suppress coverage, which they did. He also said that Hillary is aware of the violence in her campaign, as revealed by the Project Veritas videos, and that she approves of it.
He was sure that, despite Obama’s denials, voting machines could and would be hacked.
He concluded the conversation by mentioning Bill Clinton’s illegitimate son Danney Williams, who would be giving a press conference on November 1:
I will be curious to see what he has to say.
He reminded listeners that the ‘DNA test’ Clinton took in 1999 was bogus. (On New Year’s Eve, Williams posted a message of thanks on his Facebook page. His plans for 2017 include publishing a book and filing a paternity suit.)
On Friday, November 4, Larry Nichols talked to Jones. With WikiLeaks and Comey’s announcement:
The ground is starting to rumble all over the earth.
Jones told listeners Nichols was Hillary’s minder when she used to go to California at the weekends and asked why she travelled from Arkansas so often when she was the state’s first lady. Nichols said that he tried to talk with Hillary about those trips, suggesting they were not a good idea and did not reflect well on her — a young wife in the public eye who should be with her husband. He also said that Bill:
suspected she was part of a ‘witches church’ on the weekends.
This concludes the interviews with Larry Nichols.
I have two more insider interviews to cover. One is with a former White House cook and the other is with retired Secret Service agent Gary Byrne, author of Crisis of Character, a chronicle of his time guarding the Clintons.
