Court Orders Infowars Shutdown to Pay Sandy Hook Families

A court-appointed trustee has revealed plans to shut down Alex Jones’ media platform, Infowars, and liquidate its assets to help pay the $1.5 billion judgment owed to the families of Sandy Hook victims. This follows a recent verdict that Jones’ personal assets should be liquidated to contribute towards the substantial judgment for spreading misinformation.

Jones discussed the court’s decision on Glenn Beck’s show, condemning it as an attack on free speech. “This is very historic,” Jones stated. He alleged that Democrat-affiliated law firms representing the families are more interested in silencing him than in financial compensation. “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 recalled his experience during the trial, claiming he had complied with discovery requirements but was unjustly 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 said. He added that his lawyers were prevented from mounting a proper defense.

Initially, Jones agreed to an orderly liquidation, intending to ensure his employees received severance. However, he accused the judge of swiftly seizing his assets without fair consideration. “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 criticized the media for perpetuating false narratives about him. “Every nightly news channel and hundreds of publications were saying things I never said, but I was unable to respond,” he remarked.

This decision to close and liquidate Infowars marks a critical point in the legal and public battle over misinformation. Jones admits to making mistakes but insists that he did not engage in most of the alleged actions. He warned that this case could set a dangerous precedent for others facing similar accusations. The outcome underscores the intense debate over the balance between free speech and accountability in the media.
