From the June 2, 2016 episode of TVO’s the Agenda with Steve Paikin, the guest, claimed, 2 minutes in, that a report on mental health costs said that the annual cost due to lost productivity in Canada was $51 billion, and is projected to go into the trillions in 30 years. Given that Canada has a current GDP (PPP) of $1.6 trillion, that would be 3% of the economy in annual costs today, yet it’s supposed to go up to at least $1 trillion, when, in 30 years, the GDP will be $2.9 trillion (given a highly generous growth estimate of 2% annually), and the cost will be at least 34% of GDP?

The host had every reason to shocked by the claim. And, folks, just because it’s on a serious television program, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t immediately spot the claim as patently bogus.

On the November 14, 2015 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I covered the following issues:

Arthur Topham’s bogus hate crime conviction, Canadian election results, and recent articles on fauxcapitalist.com, including what G. Edward Griffin didn’t talk about on Coast to Coast AM, and George Noory’s phony talk of a presidential run.

On the February 14, 2015 episode of Exposing Faux Capitalism with Jason Erb, I discussed:

Important monetary reform victory in Canada, the call for Congressional authorization for ground troops in Syria and Iraq, the bogus Islamic State, Niqab ban during Canada’s citizenship oath, kosher conservatism and the twin sisters of multiculturalism and sustained, mass immigration from around the world.

On March 15, 2012, I wrote the article, Shades of Y2K — Gary North’s bogus Apple prediction, about Gary North’s bogus October 11, 2011 prediction that:

Apple’s relentless descent to earth is inevitable. I can prove it in 15 words.”

“There is no one to follow him. There will never be another Steve Jobs at Apple.

In my March 15, 2012 article, I had wrote:

The closing price on Apple shares the day before his article was $388.81 USD per share.

As of March 15, 2012, in anticipation of the new iPad 3, Apple shares traded at over $600 per share — a 54% increase in just five months since his bogus prediction.

Now, on January 26, 2015, what had been a bogus prediction is now an outrageously stupid prediction, with Apple shares having traded on the previous Friday at $112.98, with a 7-1 stock split value of $790.86, a 103% increase over its October 2011 value.

Yet, Gary North continues to get paid subscribers and continues to get published on LewRockwell.com, showing that it’s not about ability, but consistent writing and being connected.

Here are some Alex Jones email news alerts from the summer of 2013:

Alex Jones– “Leftists Caught Running Zimmerman Frame Up

Alex, I thought you were against the “false left/right paradigm”.

– “Photos: Obama-Backed Syrian Rebels Ransack Christian Village

Alex, I thought you’ve said on repeated occasions that Obama is just a puppet of the “globalists”? Who are some of these prominent globalists? Carl Bernstein recently told us who they are.

– “Twitter Flooded With New Wave of Riot Threats

Ah, yes, because people’s posts on Twitter are such a reliable indicator of what they’ll do in real life, right?

It reminds me of the ridiculous race-baiting fearmongering that Jones was instigating prior to the 2012 presidential election, in trumpeting the Twitter posts by some African-Americans, claiming that they would riot if Romney were elected.

Anyone who has spent more than a few hours in online chat rooms or forums would realize that lots of people act tough online, and flame others, only to wimp out in real life confrontations.

– “Americans Abandon July 4 Celebrations

This headline makes it seem like it’s widespread, whereas the actual article only refers to “some” Americans abandoning July 4 celebrations.

– “Zimmerman Acquittal to Cause Race Riots

The actual article link quotes some “Ex-Chicago Cop”, but the headline puts the thought in people’s mind that race riots are a virtual certainty if Zimmerman is acquitted.

For more on Alex Jones, see my recent articles:

1) Incredibly misleading Infowars.com headlines

2) Flashback: Alan Watt discredits Alex Jones as a fearmonger, only to be repeatedly invited back

3) George Noory of Coast to Coast AM’s outrageous Alex Jones-Hitler hypocrisy

4) Alex Jones’ Zionist controllers hope you won’t see these videos on Zionism by Adrian Salbuchi

5) Oracle Broadcasting hosts come out against Alex Jones’ staged blowup on Piers Morgan Tonight

Lindsey WilliamsAre Lindsey Williams’ bogus predictions unintentional, or deliberate?

According to the late Bill Cooper, Lindsey Williams was a Freemason, and he likely still is, given the consequences of the Freemasonic death oath (see Obligation section).

no spam!

Beginning in the early hours of November 25, 2012, I started receiving what would end up being 30 suspicious spam comments on my blog, all with links to different Facebook profiles, and all containing at least one spelling mistake.

I had never experienced this before in the four years I have run my blog.

This came just over a week after my November 18 article, It’s official: The Daily Bell lied about their website numbers, and a week after my November 21 article, The Daily Bell demonstrates the importance of impression management.

The reason I mention that is because out of the first 30 spam comments, four were on articles about the Daily Bell, which is statistically significant, given that I have written over 670 articles since 2008. In addition to the spam comments on articles about the Daily Bell, many of the others were related to things that the Daily Bell regularly writes about such as gold, silver and so-called fiat currency.

The second round of suspicious spam comments was even more revealing, with four out of the 18 being about the Daily Bell.

First I was ignored by the Daily Bell, then they clicked through to my site at least three times after my articles got picked up on Michael Rivero’s What Really Happened, and after it was proven that they had lied about their website numbers, I got a regular reader insisting he’s not a “DB agent” writing in-depth criticisms and never bothering to comment on his assertion being proven to be incorrect that the Daily Bell hadn’t adopted an “elite methodology” it had previously blasted, when I showed the screen capture of the Daily Bell including Alexa verification code on their site.
