Jones Tries New Conspiracy

“Your reputation is amazing. I will not let you down.” — Lord Damp Nut to Alex Jones

Noted conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is trying to avoid judgement for his Sandy Hook conspiracy theory by declaring bankruptcy:

Far-right website Infowars and two other firms owned by Jones, IWHealth and Prison Planet TV, have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, according to filings in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas.

The move comes several months after a judge ruled Jones was liable for defamation after the families of several victims killed in the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting sued Jones and his media outlet Infowars in Connecticut for perpetuating claims the tragedy was a hoax.

The Chapter 11 filing will allow Jones to continue operating his businesses while halting civil litigation against them, according to Bloomberg, which first reported on Sunday Jones’ companies were weighing bankruptcy because of mounting legal fees…
…Jones defied two court orders to attend depositions near his home in Texas to testify before the trial, claiming he was unable to attend because of doctors’ orders regarding unspecified “medical conditions.” It later emerged Jones’ doctor was a conspiracy theoristwho claimed Dr. Anthony Fauci created Covid-19. At the end of March, Jones offered to deliver a “heartfelt apology” and pay $120,000 per plaintiff to settle the case, an offer that was quickly turned down. Bellis then ruled that Jones would be charged between $25,000 and $50,000 each weekday until attending the deposition.

    Not a lawyer but; liability for defamation is not the same as a routine business-operating debt, so it may be up to the bankruptcy judge(?), at the least the asshole is in effect delaying payment.

    And of course he’s scamming his fans for money by playing the threatened victim; ” ‘I need your help to stay on air … we’re in the critical part of the battle now,” Jones told viewers Monday.’ “.

    IDK, but I’m thinking he’ll be hosting the latest version of Jonestown, if all goes well (for us)…

    Did Jones himself file for bankruptcy (I can’t see him taking the bankruptcy pre-qualification course)? If not, then the plaintiffs could go after him personally (taking his cars, house, guns, etc.).

    He’s been moving money to shell corporations to hide funds, so I hope he can be charged with fraud.

      At the least that money should not have the benefit of bankruptcy protection, and can be seized.
