"crisis actors."

Well, Jones had Andrea on his team, no doubt about that.

To be fair, he was right about the frog thing though.

Personally, I honestly hope it bankrupts him and leaves him homeless. What a filthy piece of crap he is. There is nothing good inside of his carcass which, in reality, is dead inside. His listeners are the dumbest, most pathetic people in the nation and should just be ridiculed at every opportunity. Tell me you listen to him and I will go out of my way to laugh in your face.

I hope this inspires others to bankrupt all the Fascist liars that have infested the US.

Meh. By not producing the discovery evidence that shows his guilt he keeps more of his shills. Now he will just up a Go Fund Me page of some sort crying about activist judges and his shills will bail him out.

I agree but that will require us, in the future, to ask the homeless people begging for money what their viewpoints are because I ain't giving a dime to any Brietbart follower. Let them do society a favor by dying from starvation.

GALAZIEPETE remembers Alex Jones to be the cry baby he is. I had let that memory fade but now that he mentions it I remember that embarrassing moment for the supreme a*****e Jones really is.

There is going to be a point where the rubes run out of money to send these ------- grifters, and then the grifters will be SOL.

...Lawyers for the parents had asked the judge to sanction Jones for violating rules on pretrial discovery, as well as previous court orders, by withholding vital information that was first requested in 2018.

"We still don't have the most basic information about this case," lawyer Mark Bankston told the judge during an Aug. 31 hearing, arguing that Jones failed to provide a wide range of requested evidence, including video of his on-air discussions about Sandy Hook, transcripts and the content from social media.

"Now we're talking about having to find people three years out ... to see who was involved in this case, who might still have documents," Bankston said. "The quality of the evidence and of people's memories all degrades."

Jones also declined to directly answer many of the questions asked during a sworn deposition, he said.

Because the pattern of abuse was so pervasive, Bankston said the parents should be able to skip next year's trials on whether Jones defamed them and proceed directly to determining how much money they're owed in damages.

In her order, signed Monday but released Thursday, Guerra Gamble agreed, saying lighter sanctions -- such as additional monetary penalties or an order banning Jones from introducing certain evidence -- would raise legal costs for the Sandy Hook parents while doing little to correct "persistent discovery abuses" by Jones.

"After five years of Mr. Jones' monstrous harassment against these families, and after three years of making a mockery of their lawsuits, Mr. Jones is finally going to suffer the consequences for the decisions he made," Bankston said ...

Plaintiffs should settle the deal by taking title to and control of all things relating to Infowars, and turn that vehicle into some lefty / BLM / neo-socialist organ. Many listeners wouldn't know about the switch and upon hearing the broadcast would have strokes...
