He’s been a leading voice in his efforts to alert Americans to the federal tyranny growing around them. Through his websites and radio program, talk show host Alex Jones has been tireless in his attempt to wake up a complacent, compromising public.
Now, he says, it’s time for Americans who are genuinely concerned that the country of their forefathers is in danger of slipping into the dustbin of history to act.
Dubbed the “Declaration of Independence 2.0,” Jones says it has become necessary for states to secede from the current union and re-align under the auspices of a republic, as called for under the terms of the 1776 declaration and later in the Constitution itself.
‘Secession is a red herring’
Calling it “the most important broadcast” he has ever made, Jones – during his Nov. 15 program – said the time had come for Americans to reassert their founding constitutional heritage.
“…[T]he entire globalist program has been built and designed to block what you are about to see unfold. I’m going to make some announcements here today, and I’m going to lay out some plans from my deep study of the Constitution that can save this Republic if you execute them. Victory is in our grasp. People don’t know they’re in tyranny until it really starts to get bad,” he said.
Pointing to growing citizen discontent, Jones said more and more states were garnering enough signatures on secession petitions to force the White House, by law, to respond to them.
“Ladies and gentlemen, petitions to the White House under federal law have to be responded to when they reach a certain number. It’s now more than 15 states , it was seven last night, that have reached that threshold,” he said, adding that it will take more than just going through the motions of signing electronic petitions to recapture what Americans have lost.
Noting that “secession  itself is a red herring,” Jones said what the nation really needs “is a new Declaration of Independence…”
“The purest American values, the purest essence of the United States was secession from a corrupt, distant corporate empire backed up by military force,” he said. “We are recaptured by the progeny; by the literal and figurative offspring of those robber barons 235 years ago. We are at the crossroads, and the entire enemy battle plan that we’ve reverse engineered is designed to suppress states’ rights movements. Because the states created the federal government and it is not their right, it is not their duty, we the people that make the states, it is an absolute imperative beyond duty. It is survival that we secede from the New World Order that has conquered us through fraud; that we declare the fraud null and void and then reconstitute the Republic with a new Congress of the several states.”
Jones’ appeal comes as the legislatures in several states, most in the Midwest and South, work to nullify all or parts of federal laws, including the health reform measure popularly known as “Obamacare,” and, in the case of Texas, invasive pre-travel searches by the Transportation Security Administration.
‘This is the time for dedication’
Jones said the country’s “new Declaration of Independence” cannot wait “until July 4th.”
“The system has prepared for this; sold Obama as the next Lincoln, and said any state’s right movement is civil war. Glenn Beck is saying it’s illegal and civil war. It is the essence of America . And there’s a new Ron Paul video he put out this morning at Infowars.com that we just posted where he says that secession is the ultimate American value.”
He continued: “America is already gone. We must recognize that, pull out the New World Order, prosecute the criminals that have hijacked the Republic that don’t flee, and then reconstitute the Republic. But we must first separate or die to then rejoin. … This is time for dedication. This is time for commitment, and the spiritual decision to sign your John Hancock in your words and your deeds towards the restoration of our Republic and putting us back on the course of liberty and justice for all.”
