A judge in Connecticut has granted the families’ discovery requests, allowing them access to, among other things, InfoWars’ internal marketing and financial documents. The judge has scheduled a hearing next week to decide whether to allow the plaintiffs’ attorneys to depose Jones. The families sued Jones and InfoWars for defamation and accused him of perpetuating a “monstrous, unspeakable lie: that the Sandy Hook shooting was staged and that the families who lost loved ones that day are actors who faked their relatives’ deaths.”

This should be interesting. If the court finds the Jones deliberately lied and it costs him, the alphabet networks best take notice.

I detest Alex Jones. It could come down to whether the plaintiffs are public figures. If so then they have to show actual malice on Jones part.

The argument will go to intent; they will show that Jones intended to be conservative. Case closed. Maximum sentence will be imposed by those who hate Jones.

I have intentionally not been a follower of this person. Seems to me he can say whatever he wishes except "fire!" in a crowded theater. What about the 9/11 conspiracy theorists? I guess since that is left wing flakiness they get a pass?

Legal discovery works both ways. Conspiracy theorists, and not just Jones, have contended that there were multiple shooters, and that it is possible that nobody actually died at Sandy Hook, that the incident was a "black op", in order to give the Obama administration the emotional leverage it needed to order a nationwide ban on private ownership of firearms. Check out some of the videos questioning the official story of Sandy Hook on YouTube. Many of these videos are not even connected to Jones. Jone´s attorneys could demand the exhumation of some of the graves of the victims, to see if there are any bodies in the coffins. I hope Jones fights this blatant attempt to take him off the air.

More judicial thuggery.

I could see it if Jones directly and specifically named these individuals as having been active participants in criminal activity, but to call an event in which they may or may not have participated a fake event is surely covered by the First Amendment.

I have a pretty sane friend who believes that the Sandy Hook thing was staged, He points out photos and videos of individuals who were at Sandy Hook, and compares them to images from other horrendous events,and a lot of them sure do look quite a bit alike. And that is not the only thing that makes an open mind go "Hmmm!?" I´m ´agnostic´ about it either way, but the way things are going, I wouldn´t put ANYTHING past the Deep State....

Anyway, if they can go after Alex Jones for questioning events, what is to stop them for taking ANY of us peasants, who post any sort of conspiracy theories to forums, news sites, facebook, twitter etc., to court and demanding our private records etc. and then probably demand our money?

I miss the old U.S. Constitution.

InfoWars is a comedy site. While not as entertaining as The Onion, the satire contained there is often poignant and there is an audience for that kind of thing.
These families feel guilt, and think that money will sooth that wound.
Or, they are just greedy.

Jones has a nasty habit of going one step too far in his conspiracy theories. Most us the caveats: "...could it be?" or "...is it possible?" But, Jones skips all that and goes right to "This is real..." to put out his crazy ideas and it ends up being lies instead of conjecture.

Pro Wrestling is not promoting conspiracy theories as stated fact. Their acting performances never go outside their little circle of actors and promoters. they do not come out and state categorical lies about cases where people lost their kids to an insane murderer. They know where their fantasy ends and where reality begins. Jones does not seem to know that.

The Pentagon announced it has started the process of withdrawing 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria, following White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders´ statement declaring victory over ISIS. Earlier on Wednesday, U.S. officials indicated that President Donald Trump would announce he was pulling U.S. troops out of Syria, though a timeline for the pace of withdrawal has not yet been set. “Five years ago, ISIS was a very powerful and dangerous force in the Middle East, and now the United States has defeated the territorial caliphate.

It must be murder for them to admit it, but suddenly Western European leaders are realizing President Trump was right about ditching the Iran nuclear treaty. On Tuesday, diplomats from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and France expressed their concern because of an Iranian medium-range ballistic missile test on Saturday. The U.S. government stated that the missile Iran tested could reach Europe and the Middle East. According to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, the missile could carry multiple warheads and violated Security Council Resolution 2231, which instructed Iran to refrain from “any activity related to ballistic

Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is leaving, but not quietly. The immensely unpopular Republican has decided to totally trash his party’s judicial agenda. Flake is the key 11th vote on the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he’s not budging until Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell holds a binding vote on a bill protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Department of Justice’s Russia investigation. It’s frustrating. It’s deplorable. And it just comes to show you why Flake would never have won re-election if he decided to execute a suicidal banzai charge concerning that effort.

Should we believe the headline, “Drinking four cups of coffee daily lowers risk of death”? How about, “Mouthwash May Trigger Diabetes. . .”? Should we really eat more, not less, fat? And what should we make of data that suggest people with spouses live longer? These sorts of conclusions, from supposedly scientific studies, seem to vary from month to month, leading to ever-shifting “expert” recommendations. However, most of their admonitions are based on flawed research that produces results worthy of daytime TV. Misleading research is costly to society directly because much of it is supported by the federal government

I had been dreading my trip to the Cuddle Castle for the past few days. I´d set out, in the spirit of inquiry, to attend a Cuddle Party, a gathering I´d heard whispers about but had never seen up close. Unlike most parties, I had to pay for this one. Thirty-six dollars covered four hours of cuddling at a secret location in San Francisco´s Richmond neighborhood. I was instructed to eat beforehand, bring water and "soft fluffy things" to "enhance" the experience, and to wear comfy clothes, such as pajamas.

All my life I have reminded fellow Jews in America that we are the luckiest Jews to have ever lived in a non-Jewish country. I know what I’m talking about. I wrote a book on anti-Semitism, taught Jewish history at Brooklyn College, and fought anti-Semitism since I was 21, when Israel sent me into the Soviet Union to smuggle in Jewish religious items and smuggle out Jewish names. Even after the massacre of eleven Jews in a Pittsburgh synagogue, this assessment remains true. But the greatest massacre of Jews in American history is a unique American tragedy.

"Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

A family dubbed Britain’s "first transgender family" has announced that they are encouraging the gender transition of their five-year-old son, Jayden. According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy." The little boy´s "step-dad," Greg Rogers, is a 27-year-old biological female who now identifies as a male. The child’s mother is a 21-year-old woman named Jody. Both Jodi and Greg are furious that concerned citizens (referred to as “trolls” by many U.K.-based outlets) have reported them to social services for apparent child abuse.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

Barr, testifying at a Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on Tuesday, said he talked to Trump about joining the president’s defense team last summer. “He said, ‘Oh you know Bob Mueller, how well do you know Bob Mueller?´” Barr told the panel. He replied that the Barrs and the Muellers were good friends and would remain so even after the investigation was completed. “And he was interested in that, wanted to know
