"Big Jim" Tucker

As a self-proclaimed authority on the Bilderberg Group, American "journalist" Jim Tucker has a prominent place in Jones' documentary Endgame, and has been a guest on his radio show many times. Since the '70s, he has sussed out the location of each Bilderberg meeting, and he often stakes out the locations to see if he can learn anything. Most of the time, he can't. Though he claims Margaret Thatcher was mustered out of office for refusing to bow down to the Bilderbergers and admitted this to him, there really isn't any evidence to bolster that statement.

When Tucker was on the show earlier this week, Jones affectionately referred to him as a "classic straw-hat journalist" (without mentioning which publications his work has appeared in), and congratulated him on his massive consumption of home-rolled cigarettes. "I don't smoke no tampon filter cigarettes," Tucker muttered.

I didn't know anything else about Tucker until I came across a mention that he had a 20-year association with Willis Carto. Yet another "populist" supporter of George Wallace's presidential campaign, Carto is also a white separatist, a Nazi admirer, an anti-Semite, and Holocaust denier. He established the Institute for Historical Review to propagate Holocaust denialism. His pseudointellectual denialist rag, The Barnes Review, is still in print (Jones favourite Texe Marrs is a fan).
From 1975-2001 his tabloid-style conspiranoia rag, The Spotlight, was America's most infamous anti-Semitic publication. Each issue was packed with Bircher-style conspiracy theories, racist rants, and bizarro "analysis" of current events and world history. David Duke ran for president with Carto's Populist Party in '88.

Where does Tucker come in? Tucker wrote for The Spotlight throughout its 26-year run. When it folded, he co-founded The American Free Press, which toned down the white racist rhetoric just enough to be mistaken for a respectable publication by people who aren't terribly bright (*cough*Dylan Avery, Jason Bermas, Kevin Barrett*cough*).

That's all I need to know. I'm not going to waste any more time on this creep. He'll be dead soon enough from lung cancer, anyway.

Have you read "Them: Adventures with Extremists" by Jon Ronson? Tucker is featured prominently in a section devoted to tracking down the Bilderbergers.

There are lots of great stories. I'm particularly fond of the one where Ronson, a Jew, dons a KKK hat. He spends time with Thom Robb and Randy Weaver. Good stuff.

I've been trying to document these close and extensive ties between 911 Troof, PAYtriotism and fascism - you might be interested.

Ive called in before. there was no call screening at all! I think you need to stop infighting with the movement. Alex Jones may be wrong about some things but everyone is entitled to there opinion and people make mistakes. Also at least he wakes people up to many important issues that need to be looked at. He also is for preserving the rights and freedoms of all people everywhere. Also he is one of the biggest supporters of 911 truth. He has made people realize that the WE have the power and WE can effect change in a positive peaceful manner, and violence is not the answer! You are completely wrong on about 99.9% of your info on this site. He also states over and over that he will not single out any group of people. Once again you are wrong. You need to open your eyes and ears and do some actual research before you start bashing someone that is just trying to make a difference. I am not a minion of Alex Jones...I am a person who has done the research and I agree with him on many of his opinions, and I want a free world without tyranny. I want the governments around the world to stop the bloodshed of innocent people. I want the attack on our god given rights and freedoms to end and be fully restored. I am for the people ... and I also think Alex Jones embodies these ideals. Even if what you are saying is true(and i am not saying it is)at least he has woken people up to the fact that everything is not what it seems, All humanity is beautiful, and he has ignited peoples souls again. At least now people question the actions of the government, instead of just going along with whatever they are told to believe and do in their everyday lives. We need to stop bashing each other and unify against the real threat. The treat of a criminal group trying to shape the world into a hellish police state.
