Is Alex Jones’ InfoWars shutting down?

On Saturday, June 1, 2024, InfoWars had a bizarre ’emergency’ live broadcast.

During the livestream, Alex Jones alleged the government was attempting to shut the website down.

Jones became visibly upset and claimed he was being targeted and accused of crimes.

He criticized those who filed against him, stating that if someone planned to “frame someone and lie about them to federal court” they should have been aware that the case had already been filed.

His outburst included aggressive language and threats.

The conspiracy theorist declared his determination to continue fighting, expressing confidence in overcoming his adversaries.

Jones ranted in the live stream: “I’ve been under attack.

“I’ve been gaslit. I’ve had secret federal files on me that I’m committing crimes, referred to the justice department.

“Which of course wasn’t true, it was already filed in federal court months before.”

He then yelled, “You want f***ing war, you f***ing got it!”

It is not clear whether the government is trying to shut InfoWars as Jones is known for his outlandish claims.

Who is Alex Jones?

Alexander Emerick Jones is an American far-right radio show host and conspiracy theorist.

He was born on February 11, 1974 in Dallas, Texas.

Jones’s website InfoWars promotes conspiracy theories and fake news.

The website was founded in 1999 and covers a range of bogus topics such as government corruption, false flag operations, and various political conspiracies.

In addition to the website, he also has a radio show and various social media accounts.

How much does Alex Jones owe families affected by the Sandy Hook shooting?

Jones, without any evidence, falsely claimed the 2012 Sandy Hook shooting was a “giant hoax” carried out by actors.

As a result, he was sued by the families affected by the shooting.

The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a mass shooting that occurred on December 14, 2012, in Newtown, Connecticut.

20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 26 people, 20 of whom were children.

In September 2021, Texas judge Maya Guerra Gamble concluded that he was legally liable for discovery sanctions.

The judge wrote in a statement: “The Court finds that Defendants’ failure to comply…is greatly aggravated by [their] consistent pattern of discovery abuse throughout similar cases pending before this Court.”

“The Court finds that Defendants’ discovery conduct in this case is the result of flagrant bad faith and callous disregard for the responsibilities of discovery under the rules.”

Two months later, in November 2021, Jones, among other defendants, was found liable for defamation by a judge in Connecticut.

On August 2, 2022, the parents of Sandy Hook shooting victim Jesse Lewis sued him for emotional damage.

Two days later, Jones was ordered to pay $4 million in compensatory damages to the grieving parents of the Sandy Hook victim.

Jesse’s mother Scarlett Lewis told the jury that Jones should pay damages, as it might motivate him to stop spreading conspiracy theories.

She said: “There has not been a sincere apology.

“But if there was, ever, I liken it to being in a car accident and you run over someone and cause tremendous bodily damage and you look at that person lying on the ground and say, ‘I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry, I’m not accountable for any of the damage I just caused. But I’m sorry.’ That’s how I see it.”

Two months later, he was ordered to pay over $950 million in damages.

This left the conspiracy theorist bankrupt.
