After being sued for defamation over his claims that the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting was a “false flag” or government-funded hoax, Infowars’ Alex Jones has admitted that he believes the massacre did happen.
“For years I’ve said I believed [the children shot at Sandy Hook] died,” Jones said in an Infowars interview with Trump confidante Roger Stone. “The lawsuit says I just said that, I haven’t said that.”
Defending himself against the lawsuit which he claims is really about liberal Jewish megadonor and Holocaust survivor George Soros being a “Nazi collaborator,” Jones claimed that “years ago, I played devil’s advocate and said I can see how the government lied about babies in incubators and all the rest of it.”
You can watch the freewheeling interview, which also contains a brief clip of Jones drawing a lewd image onto an image of former FBI Director James Comey, below:
Before Trump eyed Greenland: Here’s what happened last time the US bought a large chunk of the Arctic
Editor’s note: Reports that President Donald Trump has urged aides to look into buying Greenland make us think of the last time the United States bought a major territory in the Arctic: the purchase of Alaska from Russia in 1867. Two years ago, we asked William L. Iggiagruk Hensley, a visiting professor at the University of Alaska Anchorage, to write about that historic sale.
‘That is ridiculous’: Andrew Gillum obliterates Santorum for claiming guns aren’t ‘problem’ in mass shootings
CNN contributor Andrew Gillum called conservative pundit Rick Santorum "ridiculous" on Sunday for suggesting that guns are not the problem in mass shootings.
During a CNN discussion on gun control, Santorum criticized calls from Democratic candidates for the government to buy back assault-style weapons in addition to banning them.
"The truth is something has to give," Gillum said. "The stranglehold that the NRA seems to have over Congress, over Washington, D.C., in my opinion, is insane. How can we put the priorities of one interest group above the safety, the security of the American people?"
CNN’s Jake Tapper confronts Trump adviser Navarro with long list of experts calling him a disaster
In a highly contentious interview on CNN's "State of the Union", host Jake Tapper confronted Donald Trump's top economic adviser, Peter Navarro, with a seemingly endless list of economists, analysts and business publications who believe he and his economic advice have both been a disaster and that he is not being straight with the public.
After refusing multiple times to concede that President Donald Trump's trade war -- and accompanying tariffs -- are having any effect on an economy that many financial prognosticators believe is headed towards a recession, Tapper confronted the White House adviser with the list of his critics -- including the Wall Street Journal.
