His private property was scouted by a drone that sounded “like a lawnmower buzzing over my head,” WND Editor and CEO Joseph Farah revealed on the July 5 Alex Jones Show.
“I’m taking my dog for a walk and guess what I see right over the tree line right above my head is a drone,” he said. “I don’t live in the city, I don’t live in a populated area, I live in one of the most rural places you could possibly live in Northern Virginia and there could only be one thing that this drone was spying on and that would be me, that would be my property because there’s just nothing else around except woods and deer.”
“We’ve got our work cut out for us. More and more, I realize that the liberty lovers out there really have to stick together,” he urged. “Fundamentally, we’ve got to stick together, or we’re going to hang together, as our founders said.
“Look – this is the first term – if he’s re-elected it’s going to be war – they will be at war – we will be hunted down like dogs, keep that in mind, that’s what the stakes are,” warned Farah.
In the 45-minute interview, Jones and Farah discussed some of the leading issues of the day.
First, Farah called the massive government control in America “fascism.”
“When you’ve got major corporations in bed with government, there’s only one name for that,” he said. “Look it up in the dictionary. There’s only one name for that, and it’s fascism. The trend is to a worldwide fascist cabal.”
He championed free enterprise, freedom of speech and “a healthy and lively debate on issues that there are no sacred cows.”
Then, near the 19:00 mark, Farah called “Fast & Furious” one of “the biggest government scandals I’ve ever witnessed in my lifetime.”
President Obama is guilty of “treason of the highest order” for his role in the scandal, Farah declared.
“It seems more and more clear every day that this was a government operation with the motivation behind it to disarm Americans and to make the case against individual ownership of firearms for Americans,” he explained. “And the sneaky way they did that was to show how nasty these guns are because they’re too available in America, and we let them go over the border to Mexico, and they wind up in the hands of drug cartels and people get murdered. The scenario worked out just the way they planned it, except for the fact that it blew up in their face, to a certain extent, because the American people found out about it.”
Farah exclaimed, “You talk about impeachable offenses? This is beyond impeachable! This is treason of the highest order. … This goes right to the very top.”
However, he noted that justice appears to be held up.
“They’re caught, but what’s happening?” Farah asked. “This whole congressional investigation, to me, is taking way too long. We’ve got an election coming up in November. When are we going to see some justice done here? When are we going to see some results from all this?”
Regarding Chief Justice John Roberts’ surprising opinion in the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, Farah explained:
“John Roberts was never, in my opinion, a Scalia, an Alito or a Thomas in his view. He’s always been more of an establishment Republican. I never had high expectations from him, but I thought that if there was going to be a problem in this case that it was more likely to be Kennedy than Roberts. … Who would have expected that we’d get Kennedy, and we’d lose Roberts? I don’t think anybody saw that coming.”
However, Farah noted that reports indicate Roberts’ opinion was originally closer to that of the conservative justices, but he was somehow “seduced by the liberals to go with them.”
“This happens!” he declared. “When you’re in Washington too long, it happens!”
Nonetheless, Farah said he has faith in a “healthy segment of the American people who are not going to take this stuff lying down.”
Regarding the tea-party movement’s efforts during this turbulent time, Farah exclaimed, “One thing I can’t stand about this tea-party thing is, why are there all these different tea-party groups? Why don’t they get together and stop competing with one another? Have a convention! Get it together, guys! What are the top 10 most important issues? Let’s focus on those! What’s happened since 2010 – when the tea party really awakened this country and seemed to be shaking things up?”
Toward the end of the interview, Farah urged Americans to resist all government “attempts to control us.”
“It’s everything our Founding Fathers fought against,” he warned. “We’ve got to be like our Founding Fathers all over again. The only question on my mind is whether we have the fearlessness, the courage and the conviction that they had to do that.”
