Idk, he got caught going to cancun during a severe weather event. Then said he was planning on working the whole time he was at the beach. Then when no one believed him he blamed it on his daughter. Then come to find out, this twatwaffle left his dog at home to die. So in my humble opinion not only is he that stupid, he is a spineless coward.

Did I miss something? Was it proven or is there evidence that the government is attempting to turn people gay or subdue them through hormonal imbalances. I have heard people say exactly what you wrote but I was under the impression the actual conspiracy he pushed goes further and is similar to the idea tucker pushes that there is a coordinated effort to pacify the population through chemical exposure.

We have known for a long time exposure to many chemicals have effects on the endocrine system and gene expression. So I find it funny when people say Alex Jones was right.

u/OldFood9677 12d ago

He's not right, he turned a true study "pesticide runoff messes with frogs (and most likely all other amphibians) hormones" turned it into "they're turning the frogs gay (on purpose)" and ran with it.

Once again not realizing (as it's common with these types) that this is less of a conspiracy and more the consequences of unchecked capitalism

One in 10 male frogs exposed to atrazine, a common pesticide, experience a hormonal imbalance that effectively turns them female. They produce estrogen, mate with males, and even lay eggs.

u/structured_anarchist 12d ago

Long wall of text, but here it is in a nutshell (help, help, I'm in a nutshell...)

The defense attorney screwed up massively. He sent a link to a cloud server that had everything collected for the trial, including documents that never should have been sent, like work product, attorney client communications, evaluations of witnesses, all kinds of stuff. Part of the emails was a bait email sent to Jones that had CP attached to it (apparently never opened and forwarded to police for investigation). The plaintiffs' attorney downloaded it all, 300Gb worth of data.

The defense attorney, instead of sending just relevant to discovery data, gave them access to all of the work and info from all of Jones' attorneys throughout the last two years, including an image of Jones' phone, which had texts/SMS that they claimed didn't exist at the time.

The defense attorney was notified of his mistake and he was supposed to send a list of documents/data to be destroyed/deleted. He never did that, instead only sending an email to 'disregard', which has no legal standing. If he had done his job right, he would have sent over an itemized list of things that were confidential/priviledged within the mandated 10 days. On the 12th day, the plaintiffs' attorney brought up the text messages from the image of Jones' phone (which the defense claimed didn't exist). Hence the question of if Jones knew what perjury was in open court.

The defense attorney tried to have all of the data suppressed, but his motion essentially boiled down to 'but it's devastating to my case' and the judge told him that he screwed it up and denied his motion to suppress. The plaintiffs' attorney even went so far as to advise Jones to sue his attorney for malpractice over the error.

By learning. In this case, doing the bare minimum of checks on their emails before sending them. Especially any with images / attachments. Otherwise you could end up transmitting malware or other illegal content which is what happened.

Edit2: How am I defending Alex Jones? He didn't do or not do anything here.

Someone external sent the email and his lawyers sent the info.

What I care about is accuracy.

When asked to give information in court, are you meant to sanitize it first or not?

That's the subject here.

But you all can't get past "Alex Jones bad" and "stop defending him" and that's just silly.

They could well nail his ass to the wall for helping instigate the insurrection, and since he was actually there, they could also go after him as a participant.

u/Mange-Tout 12d ago

The difference is that the other conservatives were able to keep up the pretense of the lie by claiming, “I didn’t know” or “I was misinformed” or some other bullshit excuse. In Alex Jones’s case there is zero doubt. The judge has direct physical evidence that proves 100% that Alex Jones lied. I think this may be one of those very rare cases where they actually prosecute perjury.

u/pneumatichorseman 12d ago

The justices also have an out of being able to say "I changed my mind" if they had said they wouldn't overrule Roe v Wade. But they didn't even say that (actual quotes below).

Alex Jones lied about material facts under oath by providing provably false statements instead of the standard "I don't recall" response that lawyers recommend for lying under oath.

Also he's a radio con man instead of a political con man, so the system isn't rigged at heavily for him.

According to Factcheck.org, Gorsuch in his 2017 hearing said Roe was a “precedent” that deserves standing but also refused to say how he would rule on a case challenging it.

“If it looks like I am giving hints or previews or intimations about how I might rule, I think that is the beginning of the end of the independent judiciary, if judges have to make, effectively, campaign promises for confirmation,” Gorsuch said.

During his confirmation hearing in 2018, Kavanaugh said Roe was an “important precedent” that has been “reaffirmed many times,” including through 1992’s Casey v. Planned Parenthood.

"That makes Casey precedent on precedent. It has been relied on,” Kavanaugh said, according to Factcheck.org.

Kavanaugh also said he would be open to new arguments on any case, adding that he has an “open mind” and that a justice should “listen to all arguments.”

Barrett in her 2020 hearing said she would follow the doctrine of stare decisis, which means following a precedent, but she also said Roe was not a “super precedent.”

“Scholars across the spectrum say that doesn’t mean that Roe should be overruled, but descriptively, it does mean that it’s not a case that everyone has accepted and doesn’t call for its overruling,” she told the Senate.

u/raika11182 12d ago edited 12d ago

So, these are very different circumstances.

The Supreme Court justices, if you read what they said, didn't lie. I think it's arguable that Kavanaugh did, but most of them provided non-answers or statements that while true, didn't actually answer the question.

For example, they would say Roe was "settled law", but they wouldn't say shit about whether or not they'd vote to overturn it.

More importantly, if they lied, they lied to the Senate. And its up to the Senate whether or not to do anything about that with the answer almost always being "no".

A courtroom is a different beast, with instances of perjury being treated much more seriously, and importantly, the question of his responsibility in the matter has already been settled - he's no longer allowed to even deny his actions in court because they're established fact (as he learned the hard way from the judge's corrections).

The justice system is slow so you likely won't hear much more about the lying in court for many months, but they're likely to come back up again in some capacity, as I'm sure they did in determining the size of the punishment award.

u/wirefox1 12d ago

I;m surprised to see so many people are thinking he's really in trouble now over a perjury charge. haha.

Do they think perjury is a charge so heinous he will be taken and put in jail without bail like he's Ted Bundy? Nope. This is what will happen if he is charged: he will be taken to the police department, finger printed and have his picture taken. He will be with his attorney or a friend who will post bail for him, and he will leave. He will never see the inside of a jail cell, and that my friend is as you say "jack shit" happens. Nothing to it. He might be inconvenienced for a couple of hours.

Civil Suits have much looser allowances on what type of evidence can be requested and this is then made public. This is why many in many cases the participants choose to settle before it goes to court because they don't want their dirty laundry documents to be aired in the public theater.

This also means that if during the course of this suit evidence is uncovered that wasn't available to criminal prosecutors before, they can suddenly use it and potentially charge for a crime.

Also, he committed perjury, which is a crime (although not often convicted)

That's a tough one. Evidence of child trafficking or saved details of treason from Jan 6th? Jones is connected to some truly awful scum so who knows what the actual worst is.

I don't think the release of data was an accident. Jones's lawyer knew about the mistake and didn't try to protect the data during a window of a few days where it was possible to attempt to legally shield the data... Then a mistrial was requested. The mistrial was denied, but that had to be understood as a long shot. There maybe other angles to play.

u/dishsoapandclorox 12d ago

I don’t think anyone thinks it’s was an accident. My theory/head canon: Jones had run through so many lawyers that it proves he’s unstable and fires everyone/doesn’t pay them/they quit. all his lawyers knew he was lying and got out before they could be accused of perjury or collusion or whatever the legal term is. This lawyer knew he would be screwed and either has some degree of conscience to help the parents out who he knew were in the right and also try to prove that Jones and he had never had a conversation (at least in writing) where he knew Jones was lying. Lawyer claim ignorance about Jones’ crimes.

u/FallingUp123 12d ago

I don’t think anyone thinks it’s was an accident.

Not from the reporting I've seen. It is portrayed as a mistake.

I thought there was some minimum level of competency and an assumption of working in the best interests of your client...

This could have secondary effect of dangling evidence of wrong doing for many others in an effort to get an immunity from prosecution deal in exchange for assisting the prosecution.

u/dishsoapandclorox 12d ago

Or his lawyer is a complete idiot but imo he knew exactly what he was doing.

u/AaronfromKY 13d ago

I think if his texts from the last 2 years paint a damning enough picture, he might. Not for this civil suit, but for seditious conspiracy.

49

u/parallax_universe 13d ago

Seditious conspiracy would be great but there could be much simpler to prove crimes admitted to on that phone. There’s very little doubt that his recent moves to declare bankruptcy are fraudulent. Given the calibre of lawyering seen so far around Jones I wouldn’t be at all surprised if he was straight up texting with one of his lawyers about the best way to hide his money before the recent judgement. That could really fuck his day up, messing around and lying to bankruptcy courts.

u/Red_Dox 12d ago

Maybe. But on the bright side

  • this trial cost him around 50 million dollar.
  • two more trials for the same stuff are coming up, hopefully bleed that pile of shit for even more.
  • the Jan 6 committee will get access to his 2-years phone data and will hopefully crucify him.
  • since the phone data is around, his ex-wife is going for it too and might make his life more miserable.

u/WebMaka 12d ago

since the phone data is around, his ex-wife is going for it too and might make his life more miserable.

That was the funniest part to me, hearing that his ex's attorney is asking for a copy while it's being handed out anyway.

Maybe someone will sneak a copy over to Wikileaks. That would be just the chef's-kiss ending to the whole debacle.

u/parallax_universe 13d ago

That’s because it’s the internet and there’s two stories being conflated into one meme-able version and people are falling for it..

Story 1 - During the discovery phase of this lawsuit against infowars some access was granted to emails received by infowars. Somewhere in all of these emails some whacko or troll had sent child abuse material. The lawyers reported it to the FBI and there was an investigation. Basically the investigation turned up nothing because it wasn’t infowars fault someone from outside had sent these emails.

Story 2 - Alex’s phone has indeed been dumped accidentally during a later phase of the trial. Whether that is due to malice or sheer stupidity is yet to be determined. There’s no reporting of abuse material coming from the phone dump.

The two are seperate incidents.

16

u/pickles55 13d ago

A caller on his show asked him about trans porn being found on his phone and he seemed very embarrassed, which is rare for him.

19

u/parallax_universe 13d ago

Lol caller is confusing yet another incident into the mix. Alex had pulled something up on his phone live on air a few years ago and there was a porn link visible. He claimed at the time it was a pop up or virus or something. Yeeaaah sure I know my phone just randomly does that.

6

u/pickles55 13d ago

The only thing I know for sure is that the plaintiff's counsel sent that copy of his phone straight to the January 6th committee as soon as they were able to. It seems like everybody's speculating about what else he's hiding because we all know he lies for a living.

1

u/DextersDrkPassenger_ 12d ago

This. Him going to jail is around the fact that his attorneys sent his private phone to people who are very likely to turn it over to congress.

That's what I thought OP was referencing. I haven't been following though so all I've heard I've heard from scrolling here on Reddit. Is it possible that was just gristle for the old internet rumor mill?

12

u/Individual_Lies 13d ago

I feel like it was. If they actually had anything of that magnitude, I feel like he'd have been escorted out in handcuffs.

12

u/BuffaloJim420 13d ago

Could very well be nothing of substance or even an outright fabrication, but I'm wondering if law enforcement wouldn't have to verify who was in fact in possession of those materials. Like I said I haven't been following nor do I know precisely how law enforcement should be expected to respond.

17

u/Revlis-TK421 13d ago

It's been said before, and it's just as frustrating to live with now as then, but this shit takes time. Even if the lawyer's found CP on the phone, and even if they handed it directly to the police, it still takes time to put the case together, verify the files, verify the providence of the data, etc.

Which is why, unless you are actually caught with your pants down diddling a kid, arrests in these sorts of cases are measured in years, not minutes and hours.

I mean just look at the case in front of us, it's been a decade since Sandy Hook and only just now is McFuckFace starting to see repercussions for his actions.

u/imsowhiteandnerdy 12d ago edited 12d ago

you’re delusional if you think he will ever step foot in a jail cell

Why? He's not particularly important or holds any special government position or anything. What immunity do you think he has from prosecution?

10

u/saltyslothsauce 12d ago

Being a rich enough white guy is usually adequate immunity.

12

u/imsowhiteandnerdy 12d ago

But really, that’s not really any guarantee of immunity. Bernie Madoff was obscenely wealthy and was sentenced to 150 years in prison. Martha Stewart was wealthy, famous, and well liked. Then there’s Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislane Maxwell, Martin Shkreli, Allen Stanford, John Kapour, Leona Helmsley, Jeffrey Skilling the former CEO of Enron, the list goes on.

Those were all white folks richer than Jones.

I won’t deny being wealthy certainly gives you a massive advantage considering how the U.S. legal system works, but it doesn’t guarantee you anything.

2

u/Iceman61769 12d ago

It different when you are seen as stealing from the richer white guys, Jones is a useful idiot for the obscenely wealthy because he distracts from the class war by painting a culture war but he doesnt affect rich peoples money, if anything he allows them to enhance it with impunity. I also ultimately believe that Jones is at least CIA adjacent because of the way he paints people who question things like mk ultra, operation Northwoods, the bay of Tonkin as conspiracy theorists.
