Bankruptcy Court Moving to Shut Down Infowars and Liquidate All of Alex Jones’ Assets

The last news I heard about Alex Jones was that he had managed to hold onto Infowars for the time being.

That was about a week ago.

Part of the issue is that, like with Harvey Weinstein, even if he gets sane treatment from some court, he’s got several other courts coming down on him that he’s not going to get sane treatment from.

New York Post:

A US bankruptcy court trustee is planning to shut down conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ Infowars media platform and liquidate its assets to help pay the $1.5 billion in lawsuit judgments Jones owes for repeatedly calling the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting a hoax.

(It’s never been proved it wasn’t a hoax. All of the judgements against him were default judgements where he was never allowed to present a case.)

In an “emergency” motion filed Sunday in Houston, trustee Christopher Murray indicated publicly for the first time that he intends to “conduct an orderly wind-down” of the operations of Infowars’ parent company and “liquidate its inventory.”

Murray, who was appointed by a federal judge to oversee the assets in Jones’ personal bankruptcy case, did not give a timetable for the liquidation.

Jones has been saying on his web and radio shows that he expects Infowars to operate for a few more months before it is shut down because of the bankruptcy.

But he has vowed to continue his bombastic broadcasts in some other fashion, possibly on social media. He also had talked about someone else buying the company and allowing him to continue his shows as an employee.


I don’t have that money. If I did I would buy it and replace all his pill ads with psychedelic Hitler propaganda.

Murray also asked US Bankruptcy Judge Christopher Lopez to put an immediate hold on the Sandy Hook families’ efforts to collect the massive amount Jones owes them. Murray said those efforts would interfere with his plans to close the parent company, Free Speech Systems in Austin, Texas, and sell off its assets — with much of the proceeds going to the families.

On Friday, lawyers for the parents of one of the 20 children killed in the shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, asked a state judge in Texas to order Free Speech Systems, or FSS, to turn over to the families certain assets, including money in bank accounts, and garnish its accounts. Judge Maya Guerra Gamble approved the request, court records show, prompting Murray’s emergency motion.


The parents, Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis, whose 6-year-old son, Jesse Lewis, was killed in the shooting, won a $50 million verdict in Texas over Jones’ lies about the shooting being a hoax staged by crisis actors with the goal of increasing gun control. In a separate Connecticut lawsuit, Jones was ordered to pay other Sandy Hook families more than $1.4 billion for defamation and emotional distress.

Imagine if someone killed your relatives and you knew they were dead and thought the person was insane.

How much would that bother you?

I have dead relatives, and I can’t see it being much of a bother.

This is just “lawfare.”

Even though Jones doesn’t talk about the Jews, he talks about stuff you’re not supposed to talk about, and he was a big time Trump shill.

There is no freedom in America.

If they think it’s bad optics to arrest you, they will just find some other way to destroy you.
