Alex Jones concedes Sandy Hook attack was '100% real'

By JIM VERTUNO

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones testified Wednesday that he now understands it was irresponsible of him to declare the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre a hoax and that he now believes it was “100% real."

Speaking a day after the parents of a 6-year-old boy who was killed in the 2012 attack testified about the suffering, death threats and harassment they've endured because of what Jones has trumpeted on his media platforms, the Infowars host told a Texas courtroom that he definitely thinks the attack happened.

“Especially since I’ve met the parents. It’s 100% real,” Jones said at his trial to determine how much he and his media company, Free Speech Systems, owe for defaming Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis. Their son Jesse Lewis was among the 20 students and six educators who were killed in the attack in Newtown, Connecticut, which was the deadliest school shooting in American history.

But Heslin and Lewis said Tuesday that an apology wouldn’t suffice and that Jones needed to be held accountable for repeatedly spreading falsehoods about the attack. They are seeking at least $150 million.

Jones told the jury that any compensation above $2 million “will sink us,” but added: “Ï think it’s appropriate for whatever you decide what you want to do.”

Testimony concluded around midday and closing arguments were expected to begin Wednesday afternoon.

Jones was the only person who testified in his own defense. His attorney asked him if he now understands it was “absolutely irresponsible” to push the false claims that the massacre didn’t happen and no one died.

Jones said he does, but added, “They (the media) won’t let me take it back.”

He also complained that he’s been “typecast as someone that runs around talking about Sandy Hook, makes money off Sandy Hook, is obsessed by Sandy Hook.”

Under a withering cross-examination from attorney Mark Bankston, Jones acknowledged his history of raising conspiracy claims regarding other mass tragedies, from the Oklahoma City and Boston Marathon bombings to the mass shootings in Las Vegas and Parkland, Florida.

Bankston then went after Jones’ credibility, showing an Infowars video clip from last week when a host — not Jones — claimed the trial was rigged and featuring a photo of the judge in flames. Then came another clip of Jones asking if the jury was selected from a group of people “who don’t know what planet” they live on. Jones said he didn’t mean that part literally.

Bankston said Jones hadn’t complied with court orders to provide text message and emails for pretrial evidence gathering. Jones said, “I don’t use email,” then was showed one gathered from another source that came from his email address. He replied: “I must have dictated that.”

At one point, Bankston informed Jones that his attorneys had mistakenly sent Bankston the last two years' worth of texts from Jones’ cellphone.

The attorney also showed the court an email from an Infowars business officer informing Jones that the company had earned $800,000 gross in selling its products in a single day, which would amount to nearly $300 million in a year. Jones said that was the company’s best day in sales.

Jones' testimony came a day after Heslin and Lewis told the courtroom in Austin, where Jones and his companies are based, that Jones and the false hoax claims he and Infowars pushed made their lives a “living hell” of death threats, online abuse and harassment.

They led a day of charged testimony Tuesday that included the judge scolding the bombastic Jones for not being truthful with some of what he said under oath.

In a gripping exchange, Lewis spoke directly to Jones, who was sitting about 10 feet away. Earlier that day, Jones was on his broadcast program telling his audience that Heslin is “slow” and being manipulated by bad people.

At one point, Lewis asked Jones: “Do you think I’m an actor?”

“No, I don’t think you’re an actor,” Jones responded before the judge admonished him to be quiet until called to testify.

Heslin told the jury about holding his son with a bullet hole through his head, even describing the extent of the damage to his son’s body. A key segment of the case is a 2017 Infowars broadcast that said Heslin didn’t hold his son.

The jury was shown a school picture of a smiling Jesse taken two weeks before he was killed. The parents didn’t receive the photo until after the shooting. They described how Jesse was known for telling classmates to “run!” which likely saved lives.

Jones initially took the stand later Tuesday. At one point the judge sent the jury out of the courtroom and strongly scolded Jones for telling the jury he had complied with pretrial evidence gathering even though he didn’t and that he is bankrupt, which has not been determined. The plaintiffs' attorneys were furious about Jones mentioning he is bankrupt, which they worry will taint the jury's decisions about damages.

“This is not your show,” Judge Maya Guerra Gamble told Jones. “Your beliefs do not make something true. You are under oath.”

Last September, the judge admonished Jones in her default judgment over his failure to turn over documents requested by the Sandy Hook families. A court in Connecticut issued a similar default judgment against Jones for the same reasons in a separate lawsuit brought by other Sandy Hook parents.

At stake in the trial is how much Jones will pay. The parents have asked the jury to award $150 million in compensation for defamation and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The jury will then consider whether Jones and his company will pay punitive damages.

Jones has already tried to protect Free Speech Systems financially. The company filed for federal bankruptcy protection last week. Sandy Hook families have separately sued Jones over his financial claims, arguing that the company is trying to protect millions owned by Jones and his family through shell entities.

Perfect example of the decline of values in the media. Still no match for CNNFOXMSNBC though who can convince a nation into supporting wars that kill tens of thousands.

Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones testified Wednesday that he now understands it was irresponsible of him to declare the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre a hoax and that he now believes it was “100% real."

I remember the Alex Jones who was arrested bullhorning President Bush and the Iraq War and exposing the Wall Street banking establishment.

It seems he became deranged about the time of the Obama Administration.

Unfortunately many still use him as a source of information, quite a few on this very site.

There are not enough bytes on the internet to fully explain what an odious being Alex is.

Let’s BRIEFLY review:

Claimed that Sandyhook didn’t happen, kids didn’t die, parents were acting - all so that the government could take people’s guns.

With a wink and a nod encouraged the on-line harassment of the bereaved. Many of them had to move multiple times, change jobs, sleep with guns of there own as the harassment went past the merely tasteless and became physically threatening.

Used his denial to sell a rouge’s portfolio of products from body armor to “supplements” the revenues of which exceeds $50 million per year.

Refused to engage in legal actions against him on a variety of wholly ridiculous excuses eventually resulting in multiple default judgments.

Took several of his (by his own phone records but more on that in a moment) rather profitable businesses into bankruptcy in an effort to render them immune from asset seizure as a result of judgments.

LIED under oath on multiple occasions including when he said he personally searched his own phone and couldn’t find any emails relating to Sandyhook because “I don’t use email.”

His rocket scientist attorneys accidentally sent the entire digital contents of his phone to the plaintiff’s legal team who found SEVERAL emails from Alex on just that topic including some linking it to sales success.

I really, REALLY hope the jury comes back with a liability judgement that not only bankrupts his companies, not only renders Alex destitute, but puts a claim on every penny he ever makes until the end of his miserable existence on this Earth.

He lied, he encouraged people to torment the families of dead children. He profited on those deaths. He attempted to defraud the legal process and lied in an attempt to escape its judgments.

Just a disgusting miserable excuse for a human.

Seriously, get help. You desperately need it.

There is no moral equivalence between the Jones and the fever dreams of your imagination.

I can only hope that the parents/families from the Sandy Hook mass shooting are compensated and rewarded for the malicious lies for profit perpetrated against them over the past decade. The greatest reward would be the end of the hateful website that instigated the lies and defamatory injuries against the innocent. Conspiracy theorists who try to profit by targeting innocent people with hateful lies, who try to profit by hurting and threatening innocent people, must be brought to justice and stopped. They have no credibility and they must be exposed as the shills and cons they are, and also anyone who knowingly profited from these arguably quasi-criminal actions! Lastly, whoever bought the lies and wear the T-shirt, U need to get help - talk to family and friends or get therapy...what were you thinking! What other lies have you accepted from this source? Two time tested proverbs come to mind: "a fool & his money are soon parted" & "fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me." There is no shame in accepting the truth!

The VENN diagram between Alex listeners and adherents of the Insurrectionist in Chief is a perfect circle. To be one is to be another.

Is that why Don, who couldn’t stop slobbering over Amex has suddenly gone silent about him?

Alex's face when it was revealed that all of the texts he sent in the last 2-3 years were accidentally sent by his lawyer to the lawyer for the parents! Priceless! What an awful person and a stain on my nation this guy has been.

Sadly hook, line and sinker. In contradiction to all evidence to the contrary there are some of our lot who routinely site Alex and infowars as a credible source for their “assertions.”

As a graduate of a school that emphasized critical thinking, it’s disappointing beyond description.

He's pretending he's bankrupt, but this case should actually bankrupt him. Take every last red cent he has, and every cent to come in for the next decade.

No money, no apology, and no admittance of wrongdoing can ever fix this. Jones is already morally bankrupt. Society should remember him as an entirely useless member of humanity who has provided not even one single positive contribution to the species. A literal waste of skin.

Only someone severely lacking the ability to think critically could ever find any equivalence.

No, that would be because of failed liberal policies that have been screwing and disenfranchising the people is what caused people to abandon both parties and embrace populism.

Stranger this is an excellent question: I can hypothesize 3 possible explanations:

1) “You get what you pay for” level incompetence. I personally subscribe to this theory in menswear and legal counsel. Pay a cheap price, get cheap stuff.

2) One is entitled to a legal defense in a criminal case. It’s the reason there is a public defender’s office - so that the indigent can get the most basic of legal assistance. Civil matters have no such guarantees. Maybe no reputable law firm can stand to defend him. It’s why the fffg couldn’t get a white shoe firm to represent him.

3) (unlikely but one can dream) Intentional legal malpractice. Just hear me out. Perhaps, PERHAPS Alex’s own attorneys just cannot tolerate his behavior and “accidentally- on purpose” let the records slip.

Just a thought.

You miss the point. They aren't going after Jones for saying outlanding things, they are going after him for saying those things while not believing that they are true and profiting from them. That setting off his followers to harass the victims parents, who are already going through a harrowing time. It's profiting from inflicting immense hurt and pain on innocent people.

Sandy Hook parents are not the ones in legal trouble. They are not the trolls. Wolfgang Halbig, Alex Jones, and Trump are. Hillary never did anything bad or trolled anyone, so they just call her a pedophile since Trump/Jones/Halbig people have nothing constructive to contribute. They just say "pedophile/Liberal/Hillary/socialist" What does that even mean? Again, look at who has legal trouble. It is NOT the Sandy Hook parents/victimes. It's the Alex/Trump/Halbig people.

I bet the jury didn’t like being insulted (Yeah, they played that video too), or lied to (and if there is any karma, Alex Jones will face criminal perjury charges because he is obviously guilty) and I bet they want him to PAY for lying about dead kids and their families.

They might very well exceed the plaintiffs request.

bass4funk: Sooooooo many comments, including a demand for proof that people defend the guy when you have done nothing but (and the number of desperate posts alone clearly indicate that), and not one of them condemns the man for what he's done.

In any case, the sooner he has the blood vessel in his brain burst the better, in my opinion. He is a disgusting individual and the world will be far better off without him. He should not be able to escape paying any and all fines by simply declaring bankruptcy then renaming his company and making millions again (and I laugh at people who drink his animal bone drinks or use his taint wipes). It's absolutely no surprise he couldn't hold onto his wife and child, and they were right to run from the man.
