Infowars To Be Shut Down, Liquidated To Pay Sandy Hook Victims’ Families

In a significant development, a court-appointed trustee in Alex Jones’ bankruptcy proceedings has announced plans to shut down Jones’ media platform, Infowars, and liquidate its assets. This move aims to help pay the $1.5 billion judgment awarded to the families of Sandy Hook victims.

The announcement follows a recent verdict that mandates the liquidation of Jones’ personal assets to contribute towards the judgment. Jones, known for his controversial views and conspiracy theories, has been ordered to compensate the families for the distress caused by his misinformation about the Sandy Hook massacre.

Jones appeared on Glenn Beck’s show to express his discontent with the court’s decision. “This is very historic,” Jones said. He accused high-power Democrat law firms representing the families of targeting him for political reasons. “They don’t want to sell the millions of dollars of inventory – books, films, T-shirts, supplements, water filters. They don’t want anything; they want it immediately shut down because we want to stop his speech.”

Jones claims that he had provided all required documents during the discovery phase of his trial but was still found guilty. “I gave them everything, but there was just no evidence of what they said I did, so I was declared guilty in default,” he stated. He also mentioned that his lawyers were not allowed to defend him adequately.

Jones agreed to an orderly liquidation process, hoping to provide severance to his employees. However, he claims that the same judge who found him guilty in Texas seized all his assets without due process. “Now the federal trustee is in a fight with them trying to block them today, grabbing the bank accounts and having the sheriff’s department come and lock the doors.”

Jones also criticized the media for labeling him a conspiracy theorist and creating a false narrative. “Every nightly news channel and hundreds of publications were saying things I never said, but I was unable to respond,” he said.

This case sets a precedent, according to Jones, who fears it will be used against others in similar situations. Despite admitting to making mistakes, he maintains that he did not commit most of the actions he is accused of. The closure and liquidation of Infowars mark a significant moment in the ongoing battle over misinformation and freedom of speech.
