If you think you've seen all the half-baked, cockamamie Right Wing conspiracy movies you can handle, you may have missed this beauty. 'Amerigeddon' was released on May 13, sans the usual fanfare of a movie not produced by whack job conspiracy nuts.

Amerigeddon is a film about the very real possibility of a select few traumatic events that cause the average CCP (Conservative Crazy Person) to lose sleep at night. One of those is an EMP or an electro-magnetic pulse, a favorite apocalyptic scenario of the CCP. Movie producer, Gary Heavin, who says he was once a Republican (who still supports Trump, so he is still a Republican), believes that the 'Federal' U.S. Government is controlled by a shadow government, and of course, George Soros is right at the top calling all the shots.

Alan Colmes attempts, immediately, to coax an answer as to who constitutes this government and asks if Mr. Heavin could provide a scintilla of evidence. He is taken aback at Alan's effort to get to the point, because he was ready to set the stage to sell some of his infomercial crap. He also didn't expect Colmes to challenge his argument that ISIS is 'pouring across the border' of his beloved state of Texas, Once again, Heavin had absolutely zero evidence.

Gary seems to believe that it's both sides of the aisle who are funding this very real shadow government, even the Koch Brothers. The only reason he mentioned the Kochs was because Alan asked if they are culpable for funding this secret branch of the Federal Government. He hadn't thought of that until that moment. Things that make you go hmmmm...

However, if you look into this whole doomsday prepper movement, you can find plenty of close Koch cronies who stand to make a lot of money off this fear-mongering. The Heritage Foundation preaches the dangers of EMPs here and here.

One can find all the key-words of these conspiracy types in 'Amerigeddon.' Words like, Jade Helm, Bootstraps, Second Amendment, God, fight for your freedom, New World Order, EMP, conspiracy, Building 7, nationalism. Here's the trailer for this travesty of a movie.

Gary is a well-known 9/11 truther. He makes one salient point that our media is corporate-owned, and that's the last sane assertion that he makes. He is, as you may have guessed, a doomsday prepper. Of course, the only reason he's on television is not to prepare anyone for anything, but it is to sell doomsday kits to other paranoid CCPs. Source: Right Wing Watch.

Heavin told Bakker that a secretive and powerful “shadow government” exists in the world “that wants us to die to have a diminished population."

This shadow government, Heavin said, is “setting us up for disaster,” and he knows this because he has “sensed that people that are in positions of influence” neither care about nor like Americans and support the creation of “a one world government.”

Heavin, half-jokingly, also suggested that people with pacemakers should wrap themselves in “EMP-proof suits” just in case an EMP strike occurs.

Here he is on the Jim Bakker Show, and he thanks God that we have 'alternative' media like this to get this insanity out. Thank the good lawd that Heavin and Bakker take credit cards.

Heavin is friends with Chuck Norris' son, Mike Norris, who is a 'well-known' filmmaker. The old generation of CCPs has already spawned the new generation of these delightful loons.
