During the Conservative Political Action Conference in Dallas, Texas on Friday, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) discussed Infowars owner Alex Jones’s defamation trial, claiming that he is being unfairly targeted.

Earlier this week, Jones was ordered to pay $4.1 million in compensatory damages to the parents of a boy murdered in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

The court had already found Jones liable for defamation in a default judgment last year. The punitive damages phase of Jones’s trial began on Friday.

Following the judgment ordering Jones to pay $4.1 million in damages, the Infowars owner begged his followers to purchase his products in order to help him financially. Jones claimed that Infowars is facing “bankruptcy right now.”

“We’re maxed out,” he said in an appeal to his platform.

At CPAC, Greene argued that although Jones has “said some things,” he is being “politically persecuted” and “being forced to pay out millions and millions of dollars.”

“No one agrees with what he said,” continued the congresswoman, “but what we’re tired of is the political persecution.”

Greene then flipped the script asking when are the “Democrats, the liars in the media, and the people that canceled all of you and me…going to pay us millions of dollars?” she said quizzically to a round of applause from the audience.

The Georgia congresswoman has promoted conspiracy theories like Jones in the past, including making similar baseless claims about the Las Vegas shooting being a false flag event.

The Infowars founder has supported Greene in the past, telling her just last month that she should run for president in 2024. The congresswoman hinted that it is something she is potentially considering as Jones argued that she is “smarter” than former President Donald Trump.

Just this week, Greene attended the controversial Saudi-backed LIV golf tournament–hosted at Trump’s club in New Jersey–where she was met with crowd chants saying “MTG for VP.” The congresswoman delighted in the attention claiming she was “amazed,” by the support.

Mike Lindell Slams Newsmax, Says Business Insider, Yahoo, Jim Acosta Have Gone Completely Fox on Him in Wild CPAC Interview

Donald Trump‘s most fervent supporter and CEO of MyPillow Mike Lindell sat down for another Right Side Broadcasting interview at CPAC Texas on Saturday, during which he made it clear that Fox News and Newsmax are fake news now, said Business Insider, the Daily Beast, Yahoo!, and other media have cut him off, and claimed that shadowy, powerful figures operating at the highest level are silencing him.

The devoted 2020 election-denier said the two conservative networks Fox and Newsmax won’t talk about “therapeutics” and, later in the interview, that they won’t talk about “machines.”

Lindell said in his CPAC speech this week that “over 54 countries have now been taken by the machines.”

In the RSBN interview, Lindell’s problems with Fox News and Newsmax broadened in scope as he spoke to include all sorts of media.

He said that people “want to hear the news.”

“They don’t want the Foxes and the Newsmaxes of the world anymore, because they don’t talk about the therapeutics,” said Lindell. “They don’t they don’t talk about mandates, against mandates. They don’t talk about machines.”

After some minutes of asides, Lindell added that the media is avoiding criticizing him because they don’t want to promote an event he is planning.

“All the bad media has went completely Fox on me,” he said. “When they don’t attack me, then you know I’m really over target, right?”

Lindell talked about being dropped by people who used to talk to him on the phone, such as the Daily Beast, Business Insider, Yahoo! News, Politico, Huffington Post, the Washington Post, and the New York Times. He said that he’s been using the “rotten journalists” out there to “get the word out,” but that’s changed in the last two weeks, and he mentioned CNN’s Jim Acosta by name — mostly.

“Now they don’t call,” he raved. “I got Jim Acos–I’m texting these rotten journalists.”

“Where has he been, I haven’t seen him,” RSBN host Liz Willis interjected in reference to the CNN host.

Lindell went on, claiming that an unnamed member of the media told him that he’s being frozen out by forces unseen.

“They have been told not to call me or write, I mean not to write articles on me. That’s really censorship when you get Big Brother tells the bad media not to come after me,” said Lindell. “What? Think of how deep that goes.”

“It goes way up the ladder,” he continued. “That’s other bad people, big, way up the ladder ordering these outlets ‘don’t do anything to Mike Lindell because he’s using you to get the word out.’ That’s scary stuff. This is what I’m up against, I’m at a level you can’t even imagine.”

He then said this stuff:

You know, people, they ask me who are who who attacked our country and who has done this? Well, the CCP, the Deep State, the Uni-Party, the New World Order, the World Ord–the globalists, the Democrat Party just happens to be on the side. They warned us of the machines. They warned us in 2018, but they don’t care that they’re on the side of of the evil.
