'Infowars' host Jones disputes persona in custody dispute

Alex Jones' unsafe rants are apparently all for show. Jones also has claimed that the government possesses the power to control the weather and use it as a weapon, and that the mass shooting of children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 was a hoax created to increase support for gun-control laws.

Jones issued a rare apology in late March for his role in furthering the conspiracy theory that Comet Ping Pong, a pizza parlor in Washington, D.C., was the center of a child sex ring frequented by Hillary Clinton, John Podesta and others.

Jones is fighting his ex-wife, Kelly, for custody of their three children, age 9, 12, and 14. "He's not a stable person", she said, quoted in the Statesman. "He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin's neck", she continued. That's what the radio and internet personality's attorneys appear to be claiming in a bitter custody case playing out in AUSTIN, according to the AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN.

Kelly Jones said she is "concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress", she said, referring to his recent comments about California Democrat Adam Schiff.

Jones was back in the news after a lawyer representing him in a child custody case, characterized the often-enraged host as a "performance artist playing a character".

"Jones isn't insane", Veit Medick, the Der Spiegel reporter who profiled him, wrote.

Naranjo also explained that the jury could not understand how or why Jones' current contributions could not support Kelly because it was "not within the realm of experience of their lives".

In a statement, the owner of the restaurant, George Reed, said "words can not express the depths of our sorrow". They were not staying at the hotel, according to authorities.

Jones' conjectures include those asserting that the Sandy Hook massacre and the Boston bombings were both fabricated stories, according to The Independent.

Orlinda Naranjo, the presiding judge in the case, "rejected the motion that Alex Jones should have to contribute more, noting that the average Travis County juror won't understand why Kelly Jones' monthly stipend is not enough to cover her legal bills", the news outlet added.

But as the Austin-American Statesman reports, the Infowars archive doesn't paint Jones exclusively as a hyper-aggressive Trump apostle permanently on the verge of a pulmonary embolism.

It's overly generous to take Alex Jones or his attorney at their word, but to indulge them briefly, any reasonable consumer of media would have no valid reason to doubt that Jones believes what he preaches. "You're going to come to understand why", Minton told the jury.

Maybe these men so love to sell that even they have lost track of the line between reality and marketing. His YouTube channel has more than two million subscribers and over 1.2 billion video views. Jones declared in perhaps his most infamous freak-out.

Stephen Colbert's Monday impersonation of Jones only lightly enhanced the way the right-wing purveyor of everything you'll need in the fallout shelter shouts into the camera: "I'm alive!"
