Video: Alex Jones Arrested & Kidnapped For Asking George W. Bush A Question About The Federal Reserve

Just a little fun for a Monday morning, but probably not for Jones and his camera crew.  Clip is from 1998 during a Bush rally.  Considering that thing we call the First Amendment, I'm somewhat surprised Jones didn't sue.  Where the heck was the ACLU? 

Don't miss the last minute where Jones tees off.

(Text is from the youtube page)

During a 1998 Bush rally and speech at DuPont Photomask Facility, Alex asks the following question:

  • "Sir, shouldn't we abolish the Federal Reserve and the CFR?  That's the real reality that none of you will talk about and most of you are members.   That's what's destroying this country governor. Don't you stand for America sir? What about the Federal Reserve and the CFR?"

Alex is then grabbed by Texas police, taken outside and handcuffed.  The cameraman is threatened as he films the entire incident.  Afterwards, Alex was kidnapped and driven around for half an hour before being thrown out on the side of the road.  All for the crime of asking a question!

Ensuring secured creditors face losses when a financial institution fails could help rein in excessive risk-taking and strengthen the financial system, a top U.S. banking regulator said.

Federal Deposit Insurance Corp Chairman Sheila Bair told a group of international bankers on Sunday that officials might want to consider "the very strong medicine" of limiting secured claims to 80 percent, although she said such a proposal would need to be carefully weighed.

She said curbing claims would encourage secured creditors, who are protected from losses when a bank fails, to more closely monitor the risks a bank is taking and could speed up the process when an institution needs to be wound down.

Outstanding. Sheila is trying at least....haven't heard Geithner make this call.

I've heard Alex Jones say that he can't sue everyone, he doesn't have the TIME! lol ... there are so many crooks and criminals out there he'd spend all his time in court.

As for the ACLU, it's always been a commie front group (useful idiot dupes for the illuminati/NWO). They ONLY pursue legal cases that will further that agenda (save the random case to keep up appearances).

Remember....if they pass hellthcare, they have declared WAR.

I'm definitely not a conservative but I think you are not quite seeing things correctly so I have to point it out again.
I don't support the Federal Reserve Bank unreservedly, if you'll pardon the pun. But whatever the case, I don't think the Federal Reserve Bank has anything to do with the arrest of Alex Jones.
Just looking at the video, it's clear Jones asked a "question" which was really just a cover to give a speech at an elected official's press conference. If that kind of behavior were allowed, we would never hear from the politicians and would only hear long winded harangues from the audience.
So I don't really understand the sense of outrage at this video. Whether you're a communist, anarchist or reactionary, it seems to me that Jones' tactics were stupid and the police had no other option. At least he had the sense to go quietly. If he hadn't they would have justifiably cracked his head open.
I'm not defending Bush's policies either, which I think were abominable. But it's got nothing to do with him either.
It's about civility and maintaining an orderly political process.

"But whatever the case, I don't think the Federal Reserve Bank has anything to do with the arrest of Alex Jones."


You are looking way too hard for my motives...this is entertainment to me...of course the Fed had NOTHING to do with this arrest...I'm not sure why you would even think I am implying that...it was a Bush stump speech from his days of Governor...

My first line was a little bit of fun for a Monday morning...you haven't been around here long enough to figure out my sense of humor, I suppose...when you cover this stuff all day every day for almost 9 months, you look for lighter moments...and this clip fits the bill, from the ridiculous arrest for exercising free speech (screw civility) to Jones' intense speech at the end, it is entertaining...

"At least he had the sense to go quietly. If he hadn't they would have justifiably cracked his head open."

If you think it is justified to crack someone's head open for disrupting a stump speech, then I'm a bit worried about you.

And if you are looking for my outrage, read some of our stories about Paulson, Bernanke and Geithner...this is kid's play...but I'm still uncomfortable with the fact that you think it's ok to arrest and crack heads of those who interrupt speeches...

Do you also think it was wrong for people to interrupt town hall meetings?...and do you deplore the lack of civility expressed there as well?
