Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has promoted the idea that the Sandy Hook shooting, which left dozens of children and teachers dead, was a “false flag” operation.
Jones arguably caused irreparable emotional damage to the families and survivors of Sandy Hook. He’s been the target of several lawsuits.
On Friday, the Huffington Post published a video of Jones’ deposition. The conspiracy theorist claimed that he couldn’t remember what he’d said about Sandy Hook in the aftermath of the shooting. Since the lawsuits, Jones has admitted he believes it happened.
“I told you five minutes ago before you played it that as a boilerplate of any big public event, whether it’s Jussie Smollett or whether it’s babies having their brains bashed out in incubators or WMDs, that I upfront questioned it because of things from Operation Northwoods and hundreds of declassified real staged events where our Government admits that it staged event,” Jones says.
He also said “psychosis” made him think Sandy Hook was staged, according to the Huffington Post.
Lincoln Project releases harrowing new video of the future if Trump wins re-election
The Lincoln Project, the group of former top GOP strategists seeking to beat President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, released another new video on Monday evening.
Unlike other videos, the latest release did not feature Trump saying crazy things. Instead, it is more like a 60-second short film.
It features a mother listening to election night returns. She goes into her son's bedroom and lovingly awakens him.
"Hey honey, you asked me to wake you and tell you what happened in the election," she says.
"Who won?" the child asked.
"Trump," she replied. "Trump won."

Twitter again takes action against Trump for lying about mail-in ballots
On Monday, President Donald Trump tweeted yet another false claim about mail-in ballots, and implicitly called for throwing out any ballots that have not been received by November 3rd even if they were postmarked before that date.
Twitter took action against the president's false statement, hiding it behind a warning that it "might be misleading about how to participate in an election or another civic process."
The social network has previously limited other tweets from the president, including those giving false information about the COVID-19 pandemic and one that appeared to glorify the shooting of civil rights protesters.
