The 'Obama Phone Lady' Is Back With Another Interview that could be the year's best (Watch Video)
TheBlaze ^ | 01/15/2013 | Billy Hallowell

Posted on 08/01/2013 8:00:03 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Remember the “Obama phone lady”? She’s the outspoken Obama supporter who was caught on video back in September ranting about how the president deserved a second term — mainly because he had given her, among many others, a free phone. She became an instant classic.

Well, she’s back. And not only is she back, she’s back in one of the most incredible ways: in an interview with conspiracy-crazed radio host Alex Jones.

In a sit down with Jones this week, the woman (real name: Michelle Dowery) gave what can only be described as one of the (if not ​the​) most entertaining interview of the year (so far, anyway).

While the discussion spans more than an hour in length, one of the more fascinating and hilarious sections has been making its way across the Internet. In it, the “Obama phone lady” — as she’s come to be called — tackles her views on police, the flu shot (she doesn’t believe in it, as she contends that God will heal her if she falls ill), President Obama and plenty more. The two minute segment, alone, is worth watching.

In the clip, when asked who she’ll choose for president in 2016, Dowery comically announced that she won’t be supporting Obama. Obviously, the president is limited by the 22nd Amendment, which caps him at two terms. When Jones posed the question about who she’ll support next election cycle, through laughter, the famed phone lady said, ”It darn sure won’t be Obama” (but she does still like Obama and made that clear during the exchange).

From there, the conversation turned to police control, as Dowery explained how restrictive authorities have become in her city. Her example? Walking around naked isn’t permissible in Cleveland Heights:

“Where I live at — and where I was at — the police here’s running it. I’ve seen it with my own eyes…I just moved from Cleveland Heights to Cleveland. Cleveland, you can walk outside butt-naked. You go to Cleveland Heights, they going to arrest you, say you raped someone, because you’re butt-naked. The police is running it all.”

Obama Phone Lady Michelle Dowery Appears on Alex Jones Radio Show: Best Interview Ever

As for her technological devices, Dowery has her suspicions about government monitoring and other such peeping policies. She told Jones that her father once warned her that there would be “devices on the TV that can look through you and see where you’re at.” She told the radio host that she believes this assessment was spot on, “because now they got them things they put on kids’ leg and they look through the TV.” It is unclear which leg device she was referring to. Jones, however, was quick to agree.

As could be expected, her Obama phone was a subject of conversation — as was Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). When asked if she had heard of “FEMA camps,” Dowery responded affirmatively.

“Yes I did. I used FEMA before,” she said. “FEMA is the one that help you if you say that your flood is in the basement.”

The entire radio interview delves into other subjects, including the work that Dowery purportedly did for Obama’s campaign. And if you want to know more about the now-infamous YouTube video that shows the “phone lady” in rare form, around 28:00, Dowery described the conditions and scenario that led to her rant.

Watch the entire interview, below:

Dowery and Jones, together??? That must have created a “Stupid Vortex” which should have ripped the fabric of the space/time/idiocy continuum.

BIG kudos to Alex Jones for the interview. “Citizen journalism” at its best. That kind of follow-up to better get to know the individual is fascinating. That was a good one. I saw it several months ago at his site. Thanks for posting.

"“Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know. He gave us a phone, he gonna do more” "

"Ebry body in Clevelan, low minority, soshsec, got Obama pho... Keep Obama in Presiden, he gib you a pho, he gonna do mo"

“FEMA is the one that help you if you say that your flood is in the basement.”

I know I'm dissecting too much, but the precise formulation of this sentence is interesting.

Is it important to actually have "your flood" in the basement? No. That does not seem to be mandatory.
Is it important for you to SAY that "your flood" is in the basement? Absolutely! Say that, and the money rolls in.

Some folks may be dumb, but they understand how the system works, they know what to say and who to say it to. And then our money leaves our pocket and goes into theirs.

I won free pastry for a month once by answering the trivia question “What Ohio river caught fire?”. I’ll always be fond of the ol’ Cuyahoga.

I am starting to like this lady.
We need to remember from her viewpoint there is no reason not to take an obamaphone and notice, she seems upset that her ‘ free minutes’ are limited.

off ctopic a little. BUT the mention of FEMA camps, remember the alleged purpose of Fema camps was to train people to assist in time of disasters. They graduated the first 255 last July
did anyone see them helping after Sandy?
They have been graduating 255 every 6 weeks.
Did they help a single person during any of the tornadoe events this spring? or the fires?
What are all these full time paid by us Fema campers doing?

That’s a nice ghetto talk you have there but as a former manager for the Red Cross in Skid Row, you forget they can’t pronounce r’ at times and most sentences end with “you know what I’m sayin’?”

Are you referring to the CERT teams?

IIRC they are not paid employees of FEMA, instead they are volunteers much like a volunteer firefighter.

This is what it takes to get to the point where you have people paying you for your opinions.

Only in the USA.

“Where I live at — and where I was at — the police here’s running it. I’ve seen it with my own eyes…I just moved from Cleveland Heights to Cleveland. Cleveland, you can walk outside butt-naked.

Pictures or it didn't happen.
