Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones loses child custody battle

Published

on

Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones lost his court battle against his former wife. After a 10-day trial in Texas, it was decided that he would not get custody of his three children.

According to a BuzzFeed report, the jury deliberated for about nine and a half hours and released the ruling late in the evening. Kelly Jones will continue joint custody of the children with the ability to decide where the children live. Before the case, she had joint custody but only limited and supervised visitation with the children living with their father.

Mr. Jones apparently sat stoic-faced, BuzzFeed said and refused to speak to reporters following the trial. Ms. Jones hugged her attorney and wiped tears from her eyes.

“I’m so blessed to have such a wonderful support system and I just pray that what’s happened to my family that people can understand what parental alienation syndrome is and get an awareness of it so we can stop this from happening to others,” Ms. Jones told reporters.

“Mr. Jones is like a cult leader,” Ms. Jones’ attorney Robert Hoffman told the jury. “And we’ve seen the horrific damage cult leaders do to their followers.”

Mr. Jones’ attorney argued that the “character” of Alex Jones he plays on InfoWars is nothing more than a “performance artist” and an act. A psychologist also formally diagnosed Mr. Jones with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder.

The jury obviously agreed with Ms. Jones.

Published

One of Rudy Giuliani's indicted henchman wants to testify -- and his attorney says he's got "first-hand evidence."

Federal prosecutors have issued subpoenas to Parnas and his associate Igor Fruman, and the Parnas has indicated that he wants to speak to congressional investigators.

"Lev grew up in Brooklyn, has no criminal record or Russian Mob ties, and is a proud American citizen," said his attorney Joseph Bondy. "He’s not afraid of #POTUS or polonium, hopes to testify under oath — unlike #RudyGiuliani — and to be subjected to cross-examination under penalties of perjury. #LetLevSpeak"

‘Bootlicker’ Jim Jordan scorched by veteran Ohio journalist: ‘His life’s work is to besmirch everything America stands for’

Published

A veteran Cleveland newsman scalded Rep. Jim Jordan and the Ohio lawmakers who inflicted him on Congress with a partisan gerrymandering scheme.

Brent Larkin, editorial director of The Plain Dealer from 1991 until he retired in 2009, called his congressman the "second most contemptible human being in the entire U.S. government," and said Ohio Democrats were as much to blame for him as GOP legislators.

"When Ohio’s political and legislative leaders were drawing new congressional boundaries prior to the 2012 election, Democrats wanted a district that would protect U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge," Larkin wrote. "Republicans wanted districts that would elect the maximum number of GOP congressmen. And some people from both parties wanted a district that would likely lead to the defeat of longtime Cleveland Rep. Dennis Kucinich."
