    Another day, another poverty summit. Perhaps this time the local poverty summiteers can get behind the two biggest things that can be done to curb poverty. These two things are: 1) Close the borders, immediately stopping the importation of poor people. 2) Stop encouraging the breeding of more poor people. Unfortunately what the summiteers will do is propose more welfare programs so that they can increase the size and number of welfare empires. Another poverty summit, and some things which have grown since the first are the size of Poverty Empires, the number of Poverty Empires, and the number of people in poverty. It's almost like the reason for the Summit is to increase poverty, not decrease it.

    The Rat Political Party hosting a poverty conference is like Hitler sponsoring a B'nai B'rith conference, OK? It's incongruent and makes no sense! Who runs the mess called Washington DC and Sacramento? Who's malignant ideas and poverty programs have destroyed family structure amongst minorities? And exactly who wants more of the same madness? The Rats do! Call in an airstrike!

    On this Tuesday, April 8 edition of the Alex Jones Show, Alex breaks down explosive situations occurring in both the U.S. and abroad. Supporters of Nevada cattle rancher Cliven Bundy violated an unconstitutional "Free Speech Zone" by staging a rally to support the rancher, who is currently embroiled in a conflict with the Bureau of Land Management over grazing rights. In other news, House Republicans are pushing for criminal charges against former IRS employee Lois Lerner relating to the IRS's targeting of Tea Party groups. And abroad, Russian media is claiming that an American mercenary group is teaming up with Right Sector fascists to try and prevent eastern Ukraine from joining Russia. On today's show, Alex talks to former Georgia State House Representative and activist Cynthia McKinney on the current unrest in not only Ukraine, but Syria and Venezuela as well. Alex also takes your calls throughout today's broadcast.
