“There are no humans on Mars. There are active rovers on Mars. There was a rumor going around last week that there weren’t. There are,” Guy Webster, spokesman for Mars exploration at NASA, told The Daily Beast. “But there are no humans.”
But of course that’s what you’d expect a space agency with a secret interplanetary child slave operation to say, right, Fox Mulder?
https://t.co/G6Srew6ivh I would be the worst NASA spokesperson. I’d be like “yep, there are definitely child slaves on Mars, lots of them”

Who is telling the truth? NASA? Or Trump-endorsed media outlet Infowars? The fate of child slaves on Mars may rest in the balance! https://t.co/sTto7Z6gwG

Jones’ guest Robert David Steele, whose Wikipedia page describes him as a former CIA clandestine services case officer, did not disappoint listeners tuning in Thursday to Infowars’ 118 stations for their daily conspiracy theory fix.
“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,” he told Jones. “So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.”
Besides providing the slave labor, children are also being harvested for their blood and bone marrow, Steele says.
While Jones said he didn’t “know about Mars bases,” he did take the opportunity to hype his own NASA theories.
“Look, I know that 90 percent of the NASA missions are secret and I’ve been told by high level NASA engineers that you have no idea, there is so much stuff going on,” he said. “But then it goes off into all that, that’s the kind of thing media jumps on.

“But I know this: we see a bunch of mechanical wreckage on Mars and people say, ‘Oh look, it looks like mechanics.’ They go, ‘Oh, you’re a conspiracy theorist.’ Clearly they don’t want us looking into what is happening. Every time probes go over they turn them off.”
Why should we care about any bat guano theory spouted on Infowars? Well, for one reason, Jones has a very powerful fan.
In December 2015, as his campaign was getting started, President Donald Trump told Jones that “your reputation is amazing.”
