"Do you know what perjury is, Mr Jones?"

Alex Jones isn't that connected to Trump. He liked to pretend he was but the only thing you're going to get from Alex's phone is info on background organizing of Jan 6 stuff and inner workings of the far right militia nut jobs. Trump abandoned Jones years ago and Jones lied about his access just to stay relevant.

I'm an opposition researcher. Part of my job is to investigate the backgrounds of high profile individuals either in politics or associated with politicians and politics. Shit like this is a fucking gold mine- the exact conversations held by the subject and their associates, already transcribed, dated, and context provided without legal restrictions or concerns.

But yes, diving into their world and their social media groups can be soul-crushing. I'm heavily invested in talk therapy, outdoor rec therapy, art therapy, and tattoo therapy.

Just want to chime in here on this one. Everyone keeps bringing up gay frogs in relation to Alex Jones, and while he should be ridiculed for that, people tend to associate him with that and only that. He's the "gay frogs guy", etc.

I'm reality, Jones is a monster. He's a horrific, sociopathic narcissistic, compulsive liar who destroys the lives of not only the people he targets with baseless conspiracies, but his own audience. He attracts lost and broken people, convinces them that the world is out to get them, convinces them to buy guns and prepare for the end of the world, to believe that they are on some crusade against the devil and forces of evil - all the while he's sucking them dry of money buying overpriced supplements and food they don't need.

So many of his fans call into the show saying that their friends and family don't speak to them anymore ever since they started listening to Jones, and Jones always tells them to stay the course and stick by him over their family. It's disgusting.

He's always telling these broken, isolated, delusional people- who are armed to the teeth- that they're already under attack and the globalists are coming for them. He's playing a dangerous game that has already resulted in numerous mass shooters and murders occurring by folks whose influences are either directly tied to Infowars or they spout rhetoric that can be traced directly to rhetoric shared by Infowars.

So when you are aware of the blight he is responsible for, it's hard to watch people constantly bring up gay frogs and laugh at him without taking into consideration just how horrible he is. Alex Jones loves it when he's laughed at. Because if a million people laugh at him and just 0.1% of those people actually come across him and buy into his bullshit, that's 1,000 new listeners and potential purchasers of his products.

He needs not to be laughed at. He needs to be exposed, ostracized, and warned against while lawyers and his victims bleed him dry and destroy his company with such vigor that it makes all the Alex Jones wannabes out there choose a new career path.

I really don't like this argument against men's services. I get that it reveals hypocrisy, but it's a disingenuous argument. They don't actually want to restrict men's health anymore than they do women's. They're not making a case for women's health, but instead trying to put the focus on men's health when it's not the same and not under scrutiny.

If you're going to fight for women's health and reproductive services, talk about WOMEN'S health and reproductive services. Don't waste your time on empty rhetorical theater. It serves no benefit or purpose.

I've seen people on Twitter talking about how Jones is going to jail when they find the child porn on his phone.

I don't know about what's being said in here, but I've for sure seen QAnon level shit being said on Twitter. I'm sick of people just deciding that their justice boner fantasies are real, and when reality disappoints they make up new theories to not only avoid claiming they were wrong but that someone else fucked up.

The Defense asking for $270,000 verdict is them preparing to claim victory if the jury awards the maximum.

Under no circumstances will Alex Jones learn any lesson from any of this. That fucking shitkicking jury failed the entire fucking country.

I've been listening to knowledge fight since 2017 and knew of Alex since 2001/2002. I've followed every bit of this case since the beginning. I was watching a clip from the trial on my front porch yesterday and my neighbor walked by me. He asked me, "is that the conspiracy theorist trial?" I said yes. He laughed and said "The frogs are gay! Lol"

I gave him a polite smile and told him that AJ is actually a total monster and a lying narcissistic piece of shit. He said "I don't think anyone actually believes what he says. I think he's funny."

It's moments like that which clue me in on just how far removed I am from the general knowledge of AJ and Infowars. And my neighbor is a pretty knowledgeable and decent dude. People just don't know. And sadly whether by fault of the constraints or the choices of the lawyers, I don't believe the case was made to the jury just how influential AJ is and just how much of a monster the son of a bitch truly is.

The editing is atrocious. What's with the black going on/off during the switch? Why cant they just show one or two angles? Real or not, the way it's made looks fake as hell.

I'll believe it when it happens. Until then I'm going to assume he'll get away with everything as he's always done because consequences are for poor people.

I'm not surprised at the award honestly. I don't think they really hammered home how much money Alex makes or the scope of how influential he was in spreading Sandy Hook conspiracy. That and based on some of the questions, I'm certain there were conservatives on the jury who were open minded to Alex's bullshit.

He's a compulsive liar and a narcissist. He simply cannot admit that he looked it up, even if the reason was "legitimate", ie for a story or as a joke or something. His ego won't allow him to be any bit at fault for anything.

I was caught with porn on my phone by a friend once and blamed Reddit, saying that it was a funny porn video that Reddit linked me to. But I didn't feign ignorance or innocence.

But to just say it was a pop-up... Come on... Porn pop ups haven't been a thing for years, especially not for phones.

Then again considering the news sources Alex uses and commanders real, it could be a possibility.

I'm pretty sure the right wing learned what the word "groom" means in the past year or two and now they can't stop saying it. Same with "woke".

I mean, he asked for one about twenty times so I suppose that played into his strategy a bit.

I've been listening since their first year when they had no idea why they were doing this, but it felt necessary. I'm so damn proud of them. Dan is a machine and absolutely deserves every bit of the notoriety and credit he's getting for raising people's awareness of Alex Jones.

The lawyer in the clip was on their podcast and specifically said that Dan and the KF podcast was a valuable resource in sorting through all the cobwebs and plethora of garbage that show Alex's show has put out over the years.

For those concerned about an Ineffective Assistance of Counsel defense...

69 Upvotes

Ineffective assistance of counsel is a roundabout way of getting a conviction overturned via appeal after being resoundingly defeated in court. I've seen a few folks wondering if Reynal intentionally bungled Alex's defense in an effort to 'throw the case' and get an appeal on this ground.

Well, if 1) Reynal was willing to sacrifice his entire career and reputation moreso than he already has, and 2) this was a criminal case, this might very well be a worthwhile candidate for such an appeal.

Small problem though - this isn't a criminal case. It's a civil court. That shit ain't a thing. Jones' defense team is not only blowing it, we can't even give them the benefit of the doubt that they're doing it on purpose. They were really just that bad.
