    Infowars is set to make $800,000 in sales this week after the defamation trial over his Sandy Hook school shooting conspiracy theories. The Wall Street Journal had the report this morning on the payment. Free Speech Systems LLC, Infowars’ parent company, is set to make $800,000 one week after a jury ruled against founder Alex Jones in a civil suit brought against him by the parents of a child who was killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn. The jury in the civil case brought against Jones by Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, who lost their 6-year-old son Jesse Lewis, determined Jones must pay $4.1 million in compensatory damages and $45.2 million in punitive damages. Jones repeatedly spread conspiracy theories about the shooting that left 20 children dead, calling the massacre a hoax and its victims and their families “crisis actors.” Free Speech Systems LLC filed for bankruptcy last month, its second time doing so. During the trial, an economist testified that Jones’ net worth could be as much as $270 million. Following the...
    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones sent Trump ally and known swinger Roger Stone a naked photo of his wife, the attorney representing families of Sandy Hook victims has revealed — noting he is unsure whether she gave consent to send the picture. The racy photo was included in a trove of messages Jones was shocked to find his attorney accidentally sent to the lawyer representing the families of Sandy Hook victims, which he claims proved Jones was lying under oath. For years, Jones claimed that the 2012 shooting was a hoax and the children who were killed were 'crisis actors,' but after Mark Bankston told Jones he had a record of his text messages, the Infowars host could be seen visibly squirming in his seat. Jones was later ordered to pay $50 million to two families in punitive and compensatory damages during the deformation trial, and his texts are now under scrutiny by the House select committee investigating the January 6 insurrection. It is unclear what the House committee hopes to find in this trove of messages, but Jones has previously admitted that the text...
    Far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones celebrated on Monday, just days after a jury in Texas awarded more than $49 million in compensatory and punitive damages to the parents of a child murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School – a shooting Jones called a hoax. “I’ve seen a judge tell a jury, I’m already guilty. I’ve seen them order them to get the money I don’t have. But I tell you, it has been actually invigorating and buoying in a way bittersweet,” Jones said. “Because I’ve seen everybody from Steve Bannon to Charlie Kirk to Jack Posobiec to you name it, thousands of prominent people, hundreds of really big folks, come out and say, hey, this is for all of us. They’re coming after us all now,” Jones argued. “And I have really seen the Republican Party go from us with an insurrection. Not the one on January 6th, but the peaceful insurrection to take over the Republican Party five, six years ago to now we are the Republican Party and our populist movement is winning,” Jones added in a clip...
    The House select committee investigating the January 6 Capitol attack is now in possession of a trove of text messages from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' cellphone, it was reported on Monday. CNN reports that lawmakers on the bipartisan panel were handed two years' worth of correspondences to and from Jones, as they draw links between the US Capitol riot and Donald Trump and his allies' attempt to overturn the 2020 election. The panel reportedly obtained the texts from lawyer Mark Bankston, who is representing the parents of a 6-year-old killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. The parents won a lawsuit against Jones last week after he repeatedly decried the massacre as a 'false flag' and claimed the children who were killed are crisis actors, in addition to a host of other inappropriate remarks about the shooting. Jones was ordered to pay nearly $50 million to the two families in punitive and compensatory damages. A spokesman for the January 6 committee declined to comment when asked by DailyMail.com. Bankston apparently caught Jones by surprise when he revealed during...
    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones immediately took to the airwaves after the verdict in his defamation trial on Friday - which will see him be forced to pay nearly $50million in damages to the family of slain six-year-old Jesse Lewis.  Lewis was among the 20 children who were shot dead by crazed gunman Adam Lanza at Sandy Hook elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012. Another six people were killed in the massacre. For years Jones claimed on his InfoWars platform that the shooting in Newton was a 'false flag' operation perpetrated by the US government to further gun control. In his Friday broadcast, Jones claimed the trial against him was 'coordinated and run' by billionaire philanthropist George Soros and 'operatives.' He did not identify the other 'operatives' by name. The host also accused Judge Maya Guerra Gamble of being a 'blue-haired SJW' and insinuated that she was corrupt by saying that she 'altered the record of the trial.' 'SJW' stands for Social Justice Warrior.  In his Friday broadcast, Jones claimed that the trial against him was 'coordinated and run' by...
    CNN Legal analyst Elliot Williams said Alex Jones will remain a prominent figure on the fringe right after he was ordered to pay victims of the Sandy Hook massacre a total of $49.1 million this week. Jones was sued by families of murdered school children following the 2012 school shooting. The conspiracy theorist for years argued the victims were either actors or never existed at all. The InfoWars founder and host admitted in civil court this week elementary school children killed in December 2012 were “real.” He was ordered to pay for the emotional turmoil he put their parents through. Jones was ordered to pay $4.1 million in compensatory damages Thursday for defaming grieving mothers and fathers. That sum rose by another $45.2 million in punitive damages Friday afternoon as the trial wrapped. Jones complained he was near-broke on his website Thursday. That is debatable, given expert testimony Friday the conspiracy theorist might be worth up tp $270 million. No matter Jones’ net worth, Williams argued on CNN Friday night he is not going anywhere, and in fact might experience...
    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $45.2 million in punitive damages to the family of slain 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, one of the 26 people were shot dead in the Sandy Hook massacre.  That's in addition to the $4 million the InfoWars host was ordered to pay yesterday.  In his closing statement, the lawyer for the victims' families said: 'Alex Jones is worth almost $270 million that we know of. Please take an amount that punishes him, and an amount that ensures he never does this again.' This is the first of three trials that Jones will face in relation to his claims that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax.  Two others are set for September, one in Texas and one in Connecticut, where the shooting took place. A total of eight families will be represented in the Connecticut trial.   Alex JONES attempts to answer questions about his text messages asked by Mark Bankston (not shown), lawyer for Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, during trial at the Travis County Courthouse Wednesday Aug. 3, 2022  'We ask that you...
    An economist hired by attorneys for families of Sandy Hook victims testified Friday he assessed Alex Jones’ financial situation, and concluded he might be worth up to $270 million. Jones was ordered to pay the families $4.1 million in compensatory damages Thursday after he was found liable for defaming them. The InfoWars founder claimed for years the Sandy Hook massacre never occurred and the children murdered never existed and had been portrayed by “crisis actors.” The jury is currently considering how much Jones must pay in punitive damages. On Thursday, Jones posted a video on his website wherein he pleaded with his followers to buy his products and chip in to keep InfoWars afloat. On a video stream viewed by Mediaite, Jones said, “I admitted I was wrong [to spread false information about the Sandy Hook massacre]… I followed disinformation, but not on purpose. I apologized to the families.” Jones railed against the $4.1 million he owed, and said he feared a much larger sum was coming. “That’s more money than my company and I personally have,” he said. “We’re in...
    The Washington Post editorial board is offering a relatively critical assessment of InfoWars host Alex Jones in the wake of the unfavorable verdict he received for the lawsuit filed against him by family members of Sandy Hook Elementary School victims. The board began with a harrowing look at what really transpired on the day of the deadly shooting. "Try to imagine the horror of your six-year-old son gunned down at school. Think about what you would feel as you sat in a local firehouse and waited for hours to learn of your child’s fate," the board wrote. Try to envision holding the body of your son, a bullet in his head." The editorial board went on to offer an in-depth view of the aftermath and the added layer of suffering Jones and other conspiracy theorists may have caused with their own baseless claims about what may have transpired.

    Alex Jones set up shell companies to move money after being held liable by default in a case involving families of the Sandy Hook victims last year, a witness said Friday. Bernard Pettingill, a witness for the Sandy Hook families and an economic consultant and former professor of economics at the Florida Institute of Technology, said Jones began moving $11,000 a day into shell companies in September 2021 after being held liable for the cases involving defamation surrounding the shooting. ALEX JONES ORDERED TO PAY $4.1 MILLION TO SANDY HOOK PARENTS IN DEFAMATION CASE Pettingill also testified that the net revenue of InfoWars, Jones's company, in 2021 was $64 million and downplayed the effect Jones's company being removed from several platforms, including Facebook, had on his income. The witness testified Jones and Free Speech Systems, InfoWars's parent company, have a net worth between $135 million and $270 million. Jones's company filed for bankruptcy last week. The revelations of Jones's finances came during one of the defamation trials brought against him by the parents of Sandy...
    Conservative conspiracy theorist Alex Jones begged his viewers to donate to him on Thursday after he was ordered to pay more than $4 million to the parents of a child killed in the Sandy Hook massacre, which he once claimed was a hoax, as an economist testifies in court that he and his company are worth $270 million. In a video posted Thursday to Infowars.com, Jones said the amount he's ordered to pay is 'more than my company has [and] more than I personally have,' claiming 'we are so broke.' Jones told viewers it's their responsibility to keep him and his company afloat, saying in the video 'if you don't fund us... we will shut down' and telling them 'it's your decision' whether Infowars shuts down. He added the company 'can barely keep the crew employed' due to their financial issues, but his website was found to have made over $800,000 a day during their peak in 2017, though Jones called that their best day ever.  Alex Jones released a video asking his viewers to help fund him, and said...
    The defamation trial of far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones continued on Friday as parents of a child murdered in the Sandy Hook massacre in 2012 seek punitive damages against Jones for calling the shooting a hoax. Scarlett Lewis and Neil Heslin, the parents of murdered 6-year-old Jesse Lewis, were awarded $4.1 million by a Texas jury on Thursday in compensatory damages. Lawyers for the parents put forensic economist Bernard Pettingill on the stand Friday morning to lay out the net worth and financial operation behind Alex Jones and Free Speech Systems LLC (FFS), the company behind his InfoWars conspiracy theory show. “Alex Jones was a revolutionary, a maverick,” Pettingill said on the stand, praising Jones as a “very successful guy.” “He did not ride a wave, he created a wave,” Pettingill said of Jones’s business model, which he praised as an innovative operation that harnessed the power of the internet and has gained scores of “rabid” fans that pour money into InfoWars buying all kinds of products from merchandise to vitamins. When confronted with the fact that Jones was banned...
    Infowars owner Alex Jones begged his followers to buy InfoWars products after a jury ordered him to pay $4.1 million in compensatory damages to the parents of a 6-year-old murdered in the Sandy Hook shooting. Jones repeatedly spread conspiracy theories about the shooting that left 20 children dead, calling the massacre a hoax and its victims and their families “crisis actors.” The parents in this case, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, testified about being threatened and harassed thanks to those conspiracies. Jones has since admitted his claims about Sandy Hook were not true. “I admitted I was wrong,” said Jones in a video posted to InfoWars’ website on Thursday following the judgement. “I admitted I made a mistake. I admitted that I followed disinformation, but not on purpose. I apologized to the families.” “And the jury understood that. What I did to those families is wrong but I didn’t do it on purpose,” he said. The Infowars host made sure to blast the judge in the case, complaining that she repeatedly told the jury during the trial that he was...
    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Sandy Hook parents’ lawyer: Alex Jones will “owe a lot more” than $4M already awarded after punitive damages are decided. Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, written or redistributed.
    Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $4.1 million to the parents of Sandy Hook victims after claiming the massacre was a hoax and that he could not pay anything over $2 million.  A 12-person jury in Texas reached the verdict on Thursday on how much he owed the devastated victims' parents for damage and harm his lies have caused them over the span of a decade. The families were seeking $150 million in damages against the InfoWars host, whose companies claimed bankruptcy as Jones claimed he could not afford any payments over $2 million.   Alex Jones has been ordered to pay $4.1 million to the parents of Sandy Hook victims This is a developing story.  
    Alex Jones may have more than civil penalties to worry after he finishes his $150 million defamation case brought by the parents of a six-year-old slain at Sandy Hook Elementary school - he could be looking at prison time for perjury. Jones, who was sued for defamation by the family of Jesse Lewis for spreading false theories that the massacre was a hoax, claimed he had turned over all text and cell phone information pertinent to the case. But Mark Bankston, the lawyer for parents, revealed Jones's lawyer accidentally sent two years of the conspiracy theorist's text messages that appear to directly contradict his sworn testimony. The inconsistency in the testimony could serve to undermine Jones's credibility in the civil case, but legal experts say he exposed himself to a perjury charge that could carry up to 10 years in prison in Texas.  Alex Jones appears to be dumbstruck by the revelation that his lawyer accidentally sent two years worth of text messages that the InforWars hosted had denied having Mark Bankston, the lawyer for the parents of a six-year-old...

    The January 6 House Committee will subpoena Alex Jones' emails and text for any contact with Donald Trump after his lawyers mistakenly sent them to the lawyers of Sandy Hook parents.  Sources told Rolling Stone that the committee is preparing to request the data from Jones' attorneys after it was revealed they sent emails and texts to Sandy Hook families despite swearing under oath that the messages didn't exist.  Jones had been originally subpoenaed by the committee last November as the panel focused on his role for riling up demonstrators at the Capitol on January 6 before the deadly riot began.  The January 6 House Committee is planning to subpoena Alex Jones' emails and texts for communications with Donald Trump after it was revealed that his lawyers had sent messages to the lawyeres of Sandy Hook parents  This is a developing story.  
    Sandy Hooks shooting denier Alex Jones has finally admitted that the most deadly school massacre in American history wasn't a hoax after 10 years of causing victims' parents 'utter misery.' The InfoWars host squirmed and sweated in his seat at trial after agreeing it was irresponsible of him to declare the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre a hoax and that he now believes it was '100% real.'  Hours after 26 people were shot and killed at a school in Newtown, Connecticut in 2012, Jones began spouting false claims that the killings didn't happen.  And now more than 10 years later, the conspiracy theorists' comments are catching up with him as he's being held accountable in court.  A 12-person jury will now decide how much he owes the devastated victims' parents for damage and harm his lies have caused them over the span of a decade.  Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones finally folds: After peddling lies about America's deadliest school shooting Sandy Hooks, he admitted in trial today that it was '100% real' after causing insurmountable stress to victims' families for nearly...
    After the attorney for Sandy Hook families revealed in court to Alex Jones on Wednesday that his own lawyer accidentally sent them the entire contents of his cell phone, a former prosecutor is noting scenarios that could potentially create even more trouble for the far-right wing conspiracy theorist who reportedly may have ties to events or people surrounding January 6. The New York Times has described Jones as “a key player in the pro-Trump ‘Stop the Steal’ movement.” Jones was on the witness stand in a defamation trial against him when the attorney revealed not only had his lawyer sent the data, but did not try to retract it or claim it as privileged. The attorney said the contents of the phone includes emails and texts as far back as two years, which presumably could include communications that reference the January 6, 2021 events. A conspiracy theorist who promotes falsehoods and Donald Trump, Jones reportedly raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the rally that preceded the January 6 insurrection. At a prayer rally in December of 2020 Jones “said...
    New York (CNN Business)A Texas judge on Monday postponed a trial that will determine how much right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones will have to pay the families of two Sandy Hook shooting victims. The trial had been set to start next week.The delay came after three companies tied to Jones, including the fringe media organization Infowars, sought bankruptcy protection earlier in the week -- a move that can temporarily pause civil litigation against businesses.Jones, who is also being sued by the families of Sandy Hook victims in Connecticut, was found legally responsible in October for false claims he made about the tragedy that claimed 26 lives. The judge in the case, Travis County District Court Judge Maya Guerra Gamble, issued default judgments against Jones because he refused to comply with court orders. Right-wing conspiracy outlet Infowars files for bankruptcy protection as founder Alex Jones faces defamation suitsJones baselessly said in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shooting that the incident was staged. Facing lawsuits, Jones has since acknowledged the shooting occurred. He said in a 2019 sworn deposition that a...
    A Texas judge pushed back a trial involving Infowars host Alex Jones that was supposed to start on Monday. The delay in the defamation trial was announced Wednesday, as three of Jones’s companies seek bankruptcy protection in federal court, according to the Associated Press. “As soon as I do get a remand (from bankruptcy court) I will be resetting this trial,” Judge Maya Guerra Gamble said. “We are going to go to trial as soon as I possibly can.” JAN. 6 DEFENDANT ARRESTED AFTER UBER DRIVER TURNS IN DASHCAM FOOTAGE Monday's trial was set to determine how much Jones would have to pay the family of one of the victims of the Sandy Hook shooting.

Jones missed both days of deposition Wednesday and Thursday in Austin citing a health problem, including vertigo and eventually revealing that it was a sinus infection on Friday.

    Lawyers for relatives of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims asked a Connecticut judge again Friday to order the arrest of Infowars host Alex Jones, after he defied a court order to attend a deposition as part of a lawsuit over his calling the massacre a hoax. Jones missed both days of a scheduled deposition Wednesday and Thursday in Austin, Texas, home to Jones and Infowars. He cited a health problem that included vertigo and revealed Friday that it was a sinus infection. After he didn’t show up Wednesday on the advice of his doctors, Connecticut Judge Barbara Bellis ordered him to appear Thursday, noting he wasn’t hospitalized and had appeared in-person on his show Tuesday. Bellis did not immediately rule on the new arrest request. She rejected a similar motion by the families’ lawyer seeking an arrest order after Jones failed to appear Wednesday. She has set a hearing by video conference for Wednesday next week.

    InfoWars’ Alex Jones peddles in the conspiracy theory world of calling major tragedies “false flags” carried out by the ‘deep state’ or other mysterious actors. Everything from the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing to the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol building are fodder for Jones’ conspiracy theories. It’s his touting of the idea that the tragic mass murder of 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012 was entirely faked by secret forces that has gotten him into his most recent legal bind. Sandy Hook victims’ families have been hounded for years by absolute cretins who believe Jones’ assertions that nobody was killed, and that these parents are really paid “crisis actors” perpetrating a life-long hoax on the American public in some ploy to take away your guns and force you into servitude. After dragging his feet and diligently obstructing the legal process, defamation lawsuits ended in rulings that Alex Jones was indeed guilty of purposefully promoting these unconscionable lies. On Monday it was reported that Jones was “beset by a mysterious medical condition days before he was scheduled for a deposition” in one such lawsuit about Sandy Hook....
    InfoWars conspiracy theorist Alex Jones could soon face a warrant for his arrest, after defying a court order Thursday ordering him to sit for a deposition. For the second day in a row, Jones failed to appear at a deposition in Austin, Texas, part of a Connecticut lawsuit filed by the families of victims of the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting. In response, doctors representing Jones have claimed he’s too sick to be deposed, citing an unnamed illness that didn’t prevent Jones from hosting episodes of his hours-long conspiracy theory show this week. After Jones skipped the first scheduled deposition on Wednesday, lawyers for the plaintiffs asked Connecticut Judge Barbara N. Bellis to issue a warrant for his arrest to force him to participate in the deposition. In response, Bellis ordered Jones to appear Thursday at the deposition or face potential court action. Now that Jones has skipped that second deposition, the judge is expected to take action against him as soon as later on Thursday. “Mr. Jones cannot unilaterally decide to continue to engage in his broadcasts, but refuse...
    Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) made her debut on Alex Jone’s far-right InfoWars Wednesday, where the two firebrands discussed presidential politics. Jones introduced Greene, saying, “MTG, who I hope becomes president one day, hell she’d probably be better than Trump, coming up in 2024.” Jones continued, “Can we get you to run for president in the next few years? Because I think, I think you are one of the few people who would have a better voting record and a better chance of winning than even Trump.” “Or maybe a Greene-DeSantis ticket?” Jones asked, name-checking the Republican Governor of Florida who is thought to be at odds with former President Donald Trump over a potential 2024 presidential run. Greene responded, “I don’t know what is going to happen, I am a very strong supporter of President Trump.” “But in the future, we’ll definitely see what happens, we’ll see what the people think about something like that,” she added, hinting at the prospect of a future run. Marge Greene made her debut on Alex Jones’ InfoWars tonight. He urged her...
    Drew Angerer/Getty Images. The wife of far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was arrested late last week after she allegedly beat her husband. Police took Erika Wulff Jones, 43, into custody on Friday night after she allegedly struck her husband over the head “over 20 times,” reported The Daily Beast, citing police documents. She was charged with misdemeanor charges of assault and resisting arrest. She was reportedly released on Sunday on a $6,000 bond. “It’s a private family matter that happened on Christmas Eve,” Jones told The Associated Press. “I love my wife and care about her and it appears to be some kind of medication imbalance.” The Daily Beast, citing the Travis County arrest affidavit, reported that “during an initial 911 phone call with police, Jones told an emergency operator that his wife had struck him over the head multiple times and was ‘holding a polished club in her hand’ and attempting to ‘hit him with it.’” Additionally, according to The Daily Beast: When police arrived at the house, Jones further claimed Wulff Jones had struck him “several times,” while...
    Erika Wulff Jones, 43, wife of InfoWars founder Alex Jones, was arrested for domestic assault in their Austin home on Christmas Eve Alex Jones' wife, Erika Wulff Jones, looks somber and tearful in her mugshot taken after being arrested for domestic violence on Christmas Eve.   Pictured with extra long eyelashes, manicured eyebrows and highlighted hair, Erika was arrested after assaulting a family member at their home in Austin, Texas.

    Donald Trump on Tuesday blamed 'cancel culture' and slammed the special committee investigating the January 6th insurrection at the Capitol after the panel subpoenaed his longtime adviser Roger Stone and conspirary theorist Alex Jones.  Trump complained the committee is 'feasting' on the January 6th attack on the Capitol by his MAGA supporters and 'refusing to even discuss the root cause of that protest, which was the insurrection that took place during the November 3rd Presidential Election.' He repeated his false claim the election was rigged and blamed the refusal to discuss the matter on 'cancel culture.' Multiple recounts and lawsuits have confirmed Joe Biden's victory.  'We had a Rigged and Stolen Election in our Country, the proof is voluminous and everywhere, but the Democrats refuse to even mention or discuss it. It’s called Cancel Culture, and until that is done, this Country will never heal!,' the former president said in a statement. Cancel culture is a modern form of ostracism in which someone is thrust out of social or professional circles after acting or speaking in a questionable or controversial...
    Alex Jones erupted on his show Monday after being found liable in a defamation case filed by Sandy Hook families. Jones has lost all four defamation suits brought forth by families over his infamous comments several years ago saying the horrific shooting in Newtown that killed innocent children was a hoax. He was found liable by default because, according to the judge, he refused to hand documents over in the case. After the news broke Monday, Jones said, “It’s all a fraud, ladies and gentlemen. We hardly ever even talked about Sandy Hook.” He claimed being found liable for defamation is symptomatic of “a system trying to kill the First Amendment.” “I don’t really know what happened there,” Jones said. “There were a lot of anomalies, a lot of issues, but I do know that school shootings do actually happen. I just know they’re not my fault. And I know I didn’t kill those children at Sandy Hook, but when you think about Sandy Hook, you think about the name Alex Jones, ladies and gentlemen. And that’s just branding and...
    Alex Jones, the host of Infowars and right-wing conspiracy theorist, has been found guilty by default in all four defamation cases over his claims that the Sandy Hook school massacre was 'a giant hoax.'  A superior court judge in Connecticut made the ruling on Monday morning because Jones refused to turn over documents ordered by the courts, including financial records, according to the New York Times.  His conviction is a sweeping victory to the parents of eight people killed in the December 14, 2012, school shooting.  Juries in both states have not yet determined how much in damages Jones and the other defendants will have to pay the families. Trials on the matter are scheduled in both states for next year.  The conviction combines with three rulings in Texas last month that found Jones liable for damages in defamation lawsuits that stemmed from his statements about the Newtown massacre when gunman Adam Lanza, 20, killed 20 first-graders and six educators.  Lanza fatally shot his mother at their Newtown home before going to the school, and later killed himself as police arrived. The shooting was portrayed on Jones'...
    Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones was found guilty of two defamation lawsuits after pushing the lie that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a "false flag" operation carried out by "crisis actors." "Judge Maya Guerra Gamble on Monday issued her ruling for default judgments against Jones in two different cases, which means he and the conspiracy-theory-spewing outlet Infowars have been found liable for all damages and a jury will now be convened to determine how much he will owe the plaintiffs," Sebastian Murdock reported for HuffPost. The rulings against the InfoWars host were made public on Thursday. "The ruling — which is often referred to in Texas as a 'death penalty sanction' for a party unwilling to comply with court orders — is a rarity in the legal world. Jones, who is now on his seventh lawyer in these cases, had years to provide documentation requested by the court, including internal company emails," HuffPost reported. The lawsuits were brought by Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, whose 6-year-old son Noah was killed in the shooting and Scarlett Lewis, whose...
    Hillbilly Elegy author and Ohio Republican Senate candidate JD Vance defended himself for claiming that conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is a “far more reputable source of information than Rachel Maddow.” Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade spoke to Vance on Tuesday for his radio show, and during their conversation, Kilmeade brought up Maddow’s recent promotion of a “totally irresponsible and inaccurate” story about ivermectin overdose patients clogging up Oklahoma hospitals. The story was based primarily on a doctor whose credibility has been challenged by the local health system, and as the development became a media commotion over the weekend, Vance decided to tweet that “Alex Jones is a far more reputable source of information than Rachel Maddow.” Alex Jones is a far more reputable source of information than Rachel Maddow. One of them is censored by the regime. The other promoted by it. https://t.co/zPtXWMTQj9 — J.D.
