NASA finds it­self lat­est tar­get with tale of sex slaves on Mars

The Denver Post - - NEWS - By Peter Hol­ley

The sit­u­a­tion for hu­man be­ings on Mars is dire, and not just be­cause the red planet’s at­mos­phere is mostly car­bon diox­ide and the av­er­age tem­per­a­ture is mi­nus-81 de­grees.

There’s also the is­sue of the child-traf­fick­ing ring op­er­at­ing in se­cret on the planet 33.9 mil­lion miles from Earth, ac­cord­ing to a guest on the “Alex Jones Show.”

“We ac­tu­ally be­lieve that there is a colony on Mars that is pop­u­lated by chil­dren who were kid­napped and sent into space on a 20-year ride,” Robert David Steele said Thurs­day dur­ing a wind­ing, con­spir­a­to­rial di­a­logue with Jones about child vic­tims of sex crimes. “So that once they get to Mars they have no al­ter­na­tive but to be slaves on the Mars colony.”

NASA did not re­spond to re­quests for com­ment.

But Guy Web­ster, a spokesman for Mars ex­plo­ration at NASA, told the Daily Beast that ru­mors about hu­mans on Mars are false.

“There are no hu­mans on Mars,” he said. “There are ac­tive rovers on Mars. There was a ru­mor go­ing around last week that there weren’t. There are, but there are no hu­mans.”

Jones is known for ped­dling elab­o­rate and de­bunked con­spir­acy the­o­ries on his ra­dio show, which airs on 118 sta­tions across the coun­try and reaches mil­lions of lis­ten­ers.

The site had 4.5 mil­lion unique page views in the past month and more than 5 mil­lion from mid-April to mid-May, ac­cord­ing to Quant­cast. His YouTube chan­nel has more than 2 mil­lion sub­scribers.

Among his most well-known ac­cu­sa­tions in re­cent years is that the De­cem­ber 2012 Sandy Hook mas­sacre, in which 20 chil­dren and six adults were killed at a school in New­town, Conn., was a hoax. Jones also has claimed that the U.S. gov­ern­ment or­ches­trated the Sept. 11, 2001, at­tacks and, more re­cently, pro­moted the “Pizzagate” con­spir­acy — which al­leged that Hil­lary Clin­ton’s pres­i­den­tial cam­paign was linked to a child-sex ring op­er­at­ing from the base­ment of a sub­ur­ban Wash­ing­ton, D.C., pizze­ria.
