Following the controversy caused by Charlie Sheen’s wild and rampaging appearance on The Alex Jones Show, it’s necessary to understand why the actor is so angry, if only to set the record straight on a number of issues that have been misconstrued by the establishment media, as well as explaining why Infowars and Alex Jones are involving themselves with the machinations of the entertainment industry.
Firstly, Charlie Sheen is clean. Alex Jones spent considerable time with the actor recently and personally witnessed the fact Sheen is off the alcohol, is regularly exercising and is more focused than ever before. The impact of coming off a 6 month burnout and the endorphin rush that this causes undoubtedly contributed to Sheen’s over the top behavior during the interview, but this behavior came as a result of Sheen’s anger reaching boiling point.
Sheen even went to the extent of providing Radar Online with a urine sample to prove he was clean – the sample came back negative and Sheen passed the drug test. Sheen also passed a blood test conducted by doctors on behalf of Entertainment Tonight.
Why is Sheen so Angry?
Why is Sheen so angry? While Sheen was recuperating from his personal troubles, he had to keep his mouth shut as people who he thought were his friends ceaselessly attacked him with complete disregard for Sheen’s well-being.
Sheen was told by his studio not to complain about the cancellation of four Two and Half Men episodes, and the actor kept his word as he prepared to go back to work and film the final four episodes of the season. However, during this time he was subjected to several vicious personal attacks, not least of which by writer Chuck Lorre, who while Sheen was recovering, taunted him with vanity cards displayed at the end of Two and a Half Men episodes about how he should “outlive” Charlie Sheen, along with other vanity cards run on separate TV shows that insulted Sheen for being “dead inside”. Lorre proudly displays these insults on his own website.
The media has completely missed the fact that Lorre cast the first stone. While Sheen kept his mouth shut and was trying to get himself together, instead of getting support he was getting constantly attacked.
Before Sheen appeared on The Alex Jones Show, Alex talked to the actor in order to get an idea of what Sheen wanted to discuss on the program. As we highlighted in our promo article for Sheen’s appearance, we expected Sheen to address some of the “myriad of exaggerations, misinformation and outright falsehoods about his life that have been whipped up by the establishment media in recent weeks.”
Alex Jones was not prepared for what was to follow, as Sheen vented his anger in a number of different ways – some strange, some offensive, and some hilarious. This kicked off a global media firestorm that continues to rage as Sheen now prepares to appear on ABC’s “20/20”.

Obviously, Sheen doesn’t really think Thomas Jefferson is a “pussy” and that he and Alex Jones are ninja warlocks or vatican assassins. The interview was partly serious, partly dark satire and partly dark poetry. Indeed, the interview has attracted so much attention that Sheen’s use of the word “winning,” as a jab against his detractors is fast catching on as some of kind of new viral “Chuck Norris facts” style cultural motif.
As is to be expected, the establishment media seized upon Sheen’s comments and instantly began smearing the actor. Sheen was ludicrously dubbed “anti-semitic” for using Lorre’s birth name. As Sheen points out in the ABC interview, “So you’re telling me, anytime someone calls me Carlos Estevez, I can claim they are anti-Latino?”
While Sheen tries to get his life back on course he will continue to be attacked by the corporate media and his own colleagues for two primary reasons. Firstly, to have someone as outspoken as Sheen enjoying the platform of the biggest grossing television show in America is dangerous for the establishment. We saw this when Sheen came out for 9/11 truth. Secondly. it appears likely that CBS and Warner Bros. Television are trying to force Sheen to quit so they don’t have to fire him and buy out his contract.
For the sake of everyone who works on the show, we hope everybody can get together and work everything out. There has been enough vitriol from both sides and it’s time to sit down and come to an understanding.
Sortie Into the Matrix
As to why we are talking about a Hollywood actor’s career troubles when massive revolts are spreading the globe as the planet verges on the precipice of chaos, the answer is simple. For a start, we never expected Charlie’s interview to turn into such a gargantuan spectacle to the point where it became the number one news story in America.
However, neo-liberal Soros outlets like Media Matters and many others have attacked Infowars and Alex Jones for inserting himself into the Sheen controversy in order to generate attention and publicity for Jones’ websites. Far from being an underhanded tactic, we are proud of this fact and have openly stated that this was our goal after the Sheen story went supernova….winning!
By making such a sortie into the matrix, we are able to reach out to dumbed-down TV heads who would never have had their interest peaked otherwise. Indeed, we are already receiving numerous emails from Two and a Half Men viewers who are experiencing sudden revelations in political awakening, having been asleep for years.
We are harnessing the power of the global entertainment industry, which is so detrimental to our society and culture, and using the establishment’s tactics as a weapon against the establishment itself.
In saying that, Jones has been a close personal friend of Sheen for no less than six years and his primary concern was for Sheen’s well-being, which is why he spent considerable time with Sheen long before the controversy erupted.
But don’t think for a minute that we’re going to waste such an opportunity to bring millions of new potential Infowarriors into the fold by disguising the antidote of truth inside a package of shiny, media friendly, celebrity gossip – we’d be fools not to.
This is an information war. We need to stop preaching to the choir and extend an olive branch to the millions of Americans who are locked inside the matrix with no knowledge of how to escape. By using the global juggernaut of the entertainment industry and people’s obsession with celebrities, itself a contrivance of the establishment, we can awake millions more would-be zombies from their slumber.
