What Does Marshall Swing And Alex Jones Have To Do With The Take-Down Of The Entire Alternative Media?

Oh boy. Here we go. What we witnessed here should serve as a stark warning to the alternative media, and to Freedom and Justice itself… 

Just a rant on a Friday morning.

It’s really an epiphany, but epiphanies are weird.

But it’s not a rant in the sense of anger either.

Call it an observation, a theory I guess, and call me mildly idiotic for being at a loss of finding the right words to say today.

Perhaps I’ll do an thought exercise, you know, to get the creative juices flowing?

Sounds good to me, so I’ll start with this thought –

Here we go again:

Without even touching on the “to stand or not to stand” debate (that’s not my point here), let’s just say it’s Bread & Circuses all around, with a WWE twist.

Silver Doctors has been accused of the latter, which I guess is okay, because at times we do aim to entertain, but since we’re not a sports network, we’ve never been accused of Bread and Circuses.

Here comes the thought exercise:

Under a bi-metallic gold and silver standard, like the one required by the US Constitution, prices are truly stable, with a slight tendency for subtle deflation over time, which is naturally good, because we all enjoy a higher standard of living along with honest progress as a nation.

OK, “But Half Dollar, why the heck are you bringing up a gold standard when you were just ranting about football”?

Good question.

President Trump Tweeted something I agree with – ticket prices cost “soooo much money”, but under a bi-metallic gold and silver standard, this would not be the case.

Ticket prices would be stable.

Though excercise concluded.

I feel ready to move on.

Let’s do just that.

This week, like so many others I suppose, I have been thinking about how the Deep State/globalists/corrupt Washington politicians will attempt to take down the alternative media.

You see, I think Alex Jones was an experiment to them, and a distraction to get the alternative media focused on fascist Big Tech internet censorship, which is in fact real, but not how I see things playing out.

At least not for now.

First about Alex.

Yes, he woke up a bunch of people, myself included, but there is no doubt something changed with him, probably with a gun to his head sometime in the last few years or so, and he sold out at best, hopefully, and for a nice sum of money, or, he sold out for sparing his life.

Or he would have simply gone to the dark side and become a paid shill, but I’ll give him the “he sold out” benefit of the doubt.

Is he a martyr for the alternative media?

I don’t think so.

Because doing what they did to him only gives him more credibility in the eyes of truth seekers, and he may even get a larger audience because of it, so it must be something else.

Honestly, I don’t listen to Alex much anymore after I noticed the change in him, and wish to dedicate as few brain cells as possible to the thought of “why” he was taken out.

To me it served as a simple experiment and a distraction.

It was fascist corporate America in collusion with the Deep State taking out a prominent member of the alternative media, which Alex is arguably mainstream, but again, benefit of the doubt.

We can see that even the mainstream media got all wrapped up in the conspiracy to ban Alex Jones, and this week there has been great debate around Free Speech, whether YouTube should be a public utility, and things like that.

Surely the Deep State did not want the sheeple thinking, and rest assured the Deep State has been more interested in the response than the banning itself.

Taking-out Alex Jones was an experiment, and now the Deep State sees that taking out the alternative media, via Alex Jones tactics, is not wise.

Side note – Whenever anyone talked about Alex Jones this week, even in the “alternative media”, why do they always begin with – “Not that I listened to him”, or “not that I agree with what he says”, or “much of what he says is crazy nonsense”?

I find that funny.

It’s like everybody must somehow distance themselves from Alex before talking about what happened to him.


I think he was great before he sold out or became a shill.

I mean, if I had to pick one person who woke me up, and what I was woken up about, it would be Alex Jones and 9-El3v3n.

Regardless, the tactic was shown to be unsuccessful from the Deep State’s point-of-view, big time, and on so many levels.

Which got me thinking about the way the Deep State would likely attempt to take down the alternative media, that is, the real alternative media, not the formerly alternative or the wannabes, and it has to do with the alternative media imploding on its own, and tearing itself apart from within.

Here’s where Marshall Swing comes in.

Not discussing what just went down. We all know that story, and if you don’t, just look through his pages on Silver Doctors.

Here’s the point I would like to make – the date came to pass, and the back-lash and anger was, well, “intense”, for lack of a better word.

Not separating the good comments from the trolling, but in general, the consensus was:

  • Silver Doctors has lost all credibility
  • Marshall Swing brought hope to so many people and then let them down
  • Only the globalists/Deep State know when they will pull the plug on the economy/society
  • Silver Doctors has become the National Enquirer of gold & silver news

Additionally, a theme that came up, over and over again, was “I’m Done with Silver Doctors”.

Here’s my thought – over here at Silver Doctors, we experienced a micro-implosion, so to say.

The outrage and anger reached a tipping point, and I found myself in damage control for days on end.

That said, here is what I think is the Deep State plan to take down the alternative media – 

Like so many turned on Silver Doctors, on a micro-level, en masse, after the Marshall Swing epic fail to predict the collapse, many will turn on the alternative media in general, on a macro level, en masse, this October/November.

The alternative media will lose a bunch of followers and/or credibility at best, or rip itself apart from within at worst.

Personally, I don’t think it will be the downfall of the entire alternative media, but I do think that severe damage will be done that takes years to rebuild.

Why do I say that?

Well, first, what I’m about to spell out will cause an implosion of sorts from within.

It would spark the type of outrage and anger that was seen here in response to Marshall Swing.

And this time it would be broad based, and will affect multiple alternative media outlets at the same time.

OK, “What the heck are you talking about Half Dollar, the alternative media as a whole isn’t predicting the global economic collapse for October/November”?

No, they are not.

But, in general, what has the alternative media bought, hook, line and sinker?

It can be summed up like this –

  • Sealed indictments
  • Lock her up

That’s oversimplifying it, of course, but hopefully you get my point.

When I read the articles, when I listen to the interviews, when I listen to the podcasts, there is this sense that “justice is coming”.

There is this call about “trusting the plan”, and there has been a huge leap of faith taken by the alternative media in believing in a group of anonymous leakers which go by the name of “Q”, and often times those in the alternative media throw out timelines such as October or November for when we are really going to see progress made with actual swamp draining of the most despicable and treasonous of those who roam free in this nation after sodomizing the US Constitution in Washington.

Hence the “sealed indictments” and “lock her up” hope.

I’m not going to name names of the alternative sites.

Because I respect many of them, but like for similar reasons we held on here at SD, and continued to post Marshall, up until the day of the “collapse”, many in the alternative media are also holding on, and not in a Marshall Swing global economic collapse prediction kind of way but a sealed indictments/military tribunals/lock-her-up kind of way.

And you can see it and feel it, and they are hitting the “good will overcome evil” in this nation theme just as hard as we hit the economic collapse theme with Marshall.

So here’s my question to anybody who has stuck with me in writing out my epiphany: What happens in October or November if nothing happens?

In fact, I’m not sure where I’ve heard it, but I’ve also heard stuff like “watch for something huge on Veterans Day this year”.

Again, what if this take-down of the Deep State and bringing them to justice never happens?

Do you see where I’m going with this?

The reputation, the image of, and the confidence in the alternative media will take a beating, much like we did for posting Marshall Swing – no fascist corporate America/Deep State censoring needed.

And the thing is, the stakes are so much higher with what I’m talking about because Marshall Swing was just one person, widely unknown, mainly hosted here, but this whole “bringing the Traitors to justice” meme has permeated almost all of the alternative media, and we’re getting closer and closer to the time when it really needs to happen.

We’re getting closer and closer to the time when we really need to see results.

Having patience can cover a long time, but patience is not forever.

Since it’s been nearly two years (if you count from the election), it seems to me that patience is wearing thin, which is why I believe we started hearing that something big is coming in October or November.

And why this whole “Q” thing came into existence in November of 2017.

Again, I ask the question: What happens if the Deep State is not taken down, just as everybody has “trusted the plan” and demonstrated patience, and a just as everybody took a leap of faith?

The backlash against the alternative media in general will be so huge, that many people who believed something would happen will lash out at the alternative media with the same rage and anger that people lashed out against Silver Doctors for the Marshall Swing fiasco.

OK, “But Half Dollar, Marshall Swing thinks he’s Moses, uses the bible to make market predictions, and he is just plain crazy”!

Good points.

But, as far as Q goes and the taking down of the Deep State – this is an anonymous group of “insiders”, sharing state secrets mind you, speaking in code, in a world where everything online can be tracked (Ol’ Half Dollar does have some tech certs, and if the Deep State wanted to discredit, identify, or take down “Q”, that would be too easy), and this anonymous group asks us to simply trust in the plan?

In my mind, while different than Marshall Swing, it’s equally ludicrous.

And if I’m right about this, the alternative media will tear itself apart, no fascist interventions a la Alex Jones required.

And if I’m wrong, well, we’ll know soon enough.

Stack accordingly…
