The former Infowars reporter has opened up his own shop and remains a hot commodity at free-speech rallies across the United States.

Whether you know him from his time with the great Alex Jones at Infowars, or his witty tweets, Joe Biggs is one of the loudest voices on the right.
The retired Army Staff Sergeant did not mince his words when we asked him about everything from the death of the MSM to the labels being assigned to the Alt-Right.
Plus: his favorite band, film, gun and book! Our Q&A with Joe Biggs.
Give us the run down on Joe Biggs —
I’m from Charlotte, North Carolina. 33 years old. Retired US Army Staff Sergeant in the 82nd Airborne. After returning home, I decided to be a fearless reporter and worked with Infowars.com for several years.
Recently, I started my own publication called Borderland Alternative Media. I’m creating a new Conservative Network, Liberty One TV, where I’ll broadcast on my own channel called the “Rogue Right”.
I’m looking forward to taking what I learned at Infowars, and applying it to my own thing.
You spent a lot of time at InfoWars and saw first hand the rise of the alternative media. Why do you think mainstream/traditional media collapsed?
Honestly, social media removed the blindfold off of many Americans and people all over the world. The MSM met their rival with the creation of social media.
The rise of the citizen journalists literally destroyed their narratives by putting everyday people on the scene of a breaking news story with the ability to Facebook and Twitter.
Then cell phones got exceptionally better, and gave we the people the ability to report with video in real time just like MSM.
We were then able to show the lies perpetrated by the MSM and completely shift the narrative from the false news we were getting for so long, and then able to take those videos and put them out on social media.
We were able to immediately challenge their lies. Our content started going viral and we began to win the media war that has been waged on our minds for years.
Alt-Right/Alt-Lite/New Right… what the difference and does it matter?
The Alt-right, from my experience, is a group that is on the verge of being straight up extreme white supremacists. No immigration at all. Whites only, Whites only with whites. Blame Jews for everything that ever happens ever. Hitler Fan Boys. Closet homosexuals for a large part , and I think that’s where a lot of their anger comes from. (I have a reason for saying this.)
Alt-Lite is a conservative group that wants legal immigration for people willing to assimilate. They want people to raise their children regardless of color to be Americans and pro western civilization. Not anti- race mixing. They want a strong military, strong borders and states rights.
The New Right? a different label for Alt-lite in my opinion
Also. I hate labels, Liberal Lefties label everything.
I don’t want to be grouped into anything. I can’t speak for everyone that’s in a group, and I don’t want to be associated with another persons extreme or crazy views.
I’m far right of center but in my own way, some will agree with me and others won’t. I honestly don’t care, nor do I seek anyone’s opinion of myself or beliefs.
Top 5 people responsible for electing Donald Trump?
Donald Trump, Roger Stone, Alex Jones, Michael Savage and Sean Hannity.
How do you view Trump’s first 6-months?
I think he has done a great job thus far. Not even a year and jobs are up, illegal immigration is down. Stocks are soaring (all while the MSM still pushes bogus polls), the same polls that said DJT wouldn’t win and HRC had a 90% chance of winning.
Favorite band, film, gun, book?
Metallica, Apocalypse Now, Remington 700 6.5 Creedmoor, The Art of War.
