Trump's favorite conspiracy theorist claims he's just a 'performance artist'

Trump's favorite conspiracy theorist claims he's just a 'performance artist'

But Kelly Jones, the InfoWars host's ex-wife who is seeking sole or joint custody of the couple's three children in the case, testified that Jones' InfoWars personality is absolutely the real Jones.

"He is a performance artist", Jones attorney Randall Wilhite argued to a Texas judge per a report in the Austin American-Statesman.

"He's playing a character", Wilhite said during the hearing, the Austin American-Statesman reported. But if Jones' lawyers are to be believed, Jones is just a "performance artist" and his InfoWars persona is just a "character".

Lawyers for both Jones and his wife, who are under a gag order, did not respond to requests for comment on Monday. He predicted that Lady Gaga's Super Bowl halftime show would be a satanic ritual, and he accused her of being involved in child sex-trafficking rings run out of pizza parlors, an operation he claimed was headed by Hillary Clinton.

Alex Jones' attorney called it "good stuff" but Kelly Jones attorney explained he was laying the groundwork for the argument that there isn't a difference between Alex Jones the Infowarrior and Alex Jones the father. He is best known for pushing unfounded conspiracy theories, including one that accused the USA government of being involved in the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 and the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

"I'm concerned that he is engaged in felonious behavior, threatening a member of Congress", she said, referring to comments the host made earlier this month about Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California. "I will not let you down". "This case is not about Infowars, " she said.

US regulators aim to keep the ban on in-flight phone calls
In 2013, the then FCC Chairman, Tom Wheeler, had proposed allowing voice calls in flight based on that logic. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai appears to have enough votes to axe that plan, which he considers " ill-conceived ".

Jones has also suggested that the Sandy Hook mass shooting was a hoax.

Jones promotes the theory that "globalist" forces, including politicians and big business, are out to rob the US of its sovereignty, and that Trump will save the nation from this conspiracy.

Several segments from Jones' show has been played to the jury.

Infowars.com, for instance, had 7.6 million global unique visitors from March 16 to April 14, according to Quantcast, which measures web audiences.

He drew praise from Donald Trump when Trump was a candidate for the White House, telling Jones in December 2015: "Your reputation is incredible. In fact, more people follow Alex than watch Fox News or CNN", Stone said.
