Conspiracy Radio host Alex Jones is in a bitter custody battle for his children with his former wife. Jones’ attorney Randall Wilhite told District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that his client shouldn’t be evaluated based on his appearances on his popular broadcasts on Wilhite argued that judging Jones as a father in such a way would be akin to judging Jack Nicholson based on his appearance as The Joker in “Batman.”

“He’s playing a character. He is a performance artist,” Wilhite claims.

Jones’ ex-wife disagrees, claiming that the show host actually believes all the wild conspiracies that he rants to an audience of nearly 7.6 million people regularly. “He’s not a stable person,” she said. “He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin’s neck. He wants J-Lo to get raped. I’m concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress,” she said, referring to recent comments about Democrat Adam Schiff. “He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast.”

Jones, who’s been labeled by Roger Stone as “Trump’s secret weapon” is now faced with defending his validity over the arguments from his lawyer that he’s simply a performance artist. If that’s true, then would that be a conflict of interest for someone to sell water filters if they didn’t really believe that the government was poisoning it with fluoride? Why do people believe in such wild conspiracy theories anyway? Austin Petersen breaks down the story and makes

  • Just throwing this idea out there and look forward to comments. Over the years, especially with Alex J and Jesse V, I see a lot of conspiracy theories being used in seemingly every place possible to steer the reasons why a certain event took place toward some kind of globalist or evil corporation as the cause. For example, Jesse V just released a video on YT talking about electronic voting having a risk of being hacked to change election results. I’m sure you can think of tons of other examples (9/11, etc). Here’s my idea or how I think about possible explanations for strange events: do you really think it is possible to bribe or threaten every member of the ballot counting team, or every emergency worker involved in 9/11 to force them to a certain narrative of how it all went down, to shut them up, etc? I think the existence of people like Julian E and Edward S is evidence that whistle blowers are everywhere, and luckily for us, most people are of good conscience and do not let immorality be buried (assuming they view the act as immoral). It is simply impossible to create a vast conspiracy because it depends on far too many individuals whose allegiance is not secured. Its much more likely 1 of them will leak information (and it just takes 1). On the other hand, a small conspiracy is easily carried out, although we call it common crime, or secrets we may have, or jokes we play on people. Why? Because it involves a very small number of people. But vast conspiracies are simply impossible without a cult following and cyanide pills. Though saying all that, the b Laden event is pretty shady and I hope in the future we find out what really happened.

  • I’m curious to hear people’s thoughts on how this touchy subject would be handled without the use of state violence. Anyone who has been through this or who have had friends dealing with the ex from hell knows that all rationality and human decency can go out the window. How can we be sure that both parents are allowed fair access to a child? Are custodial parents entitled to money or “support” from non-custodial parents? Can you force a parent that doesn’t want to be a part of the child/family’s life to be financially responsible for them? Discuss.
