In the uncharacteristically esoteric video segment featured above, controversial talk show host Alex Jones discusses his apparent experiences with intuition, stating explicitly that “every time I follow my feelings, it’s right.”

In relation to the recent shootings that have caused nationwide controversy, Jones discusses how he has an apparent “sixth sense” that is typically a kind of foreboding (he describes this as “getting chills”) prior to a death or a massacre soon to be highlighted by the media.

“I’ve had dreams that actually come true before,” Jones says at one point. “That I’ve told people about, and they come true six months later.” While he remains careful about admitting that his apparent precognition is anything noteworthy, he goes on to recollect how he had predicted that the World Trade Center would be bombed as early as July 25, 2001, and that Jimmy Vaughn, a popular Texas-based guitarist and brother of the late blues guitar legend Stevie Ray Vaughn, had even vouched for Jones’ prediction. But if the famous conspiracy theorist is, in fact, exhibiting precognitive abilities, just how good are his strange powers of prediction?

  1. Dreaming that the World Trade Center would be attacked in the same year that it actually was is no big deal. It was one of the most famous buildings on the planet, and it already been attacked in this way once. Note that he said “bombed” – that’s not the same thing as “hit by two aircraft”, is it? He just had an anxiety dream in which exactly what Timothy McVeigh had previously done happened again. I bet thousands of people dreamt that Pope John Paul II would be shot again after he already had been. And if another assassin had ever taken a shot at this world-famous person, some of these characters would have been trumpeting their psychic powers from the rooftops.

    A gut feeling that “something very big” is going to happen “soon” is just fishing. Since he doesn’t specify time, place, or even type of “big thing” – earthquake in San Francisco? – nuclear attack by North Korea on South Korea? – global outbreak of deadly new type of flu? – only one guy dies but he’s somebody really famous? – anything at all in the next year that makes international headlines for more than a week? – I don’t think he’ll have too much trouble claiming after the fact that his amazing prediction came true.
