Editor’s Note: In our view this is not a terribly surprising development. As we have recently noted here, whether it is a matter of being compromised himself or playing the role of an agent provocateur in the Truth community to short circuit research efforts for “the other side,” Jones has been consistently inconsistent and even misleading in statements and analyses of numerous complex events, only one of which is the Newtown Connecticut school massacre. Perhaps this is why an increasing number of his fans and even employees have walked away from “Operation Infowars.”
Instead of attacking the Sandy Hook parents who are bringing a lawsuit against him for defamation–because he has (from time to time) asserted that Sandy Hook was fake and that no children died (which implies that they are BIG TIME liars and frauds)–he has wimped out by making an appeal to pity, which is the elementary fallacy of using the unfortunate consequences of something being true as though it were proof that it’s actually false! He’s not going to get away with it–but why even try?
Sensing weakness–since truth is an absolute defense against defamation, but Alex is not arguing that his observations about Sandy Hook fakery are true–Lenny Pozner and Neil Heslin are not going to back down, even though they are (in the process) opening themselves up to discovery, which would provide an opportunity to establish the fact of Sandy Hook as an elaborate charade in a court of law. Neil Heslin, for example, longs for “a knock-down, drag out fight”, which Alex ought to give him:
As it happens, I have been sending Infowars.com contacts, including Jerry Corsi, samples of proof that it was a staged event–a two-day FEMA exercise, with a rehearsal on the 13th, going LIVE on the14th–but received a cordial dismissal from Corsi and passive reception from others there–which is rather astonishing, since we have proven that the school was closed by 2008 and there were no students there. I recently made a summary overview of the history of research on Sandy Hook:
The building was non-compliant with state and federal laws implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which I verified at the time with Connecticut and Federal laws, which require that every access and entrance point be wheel-chair accessible. Obviously, as this photo proves, that was not the case, where no wheelchair could navigate this wooden stairway. And we have mountains of proof that the school was in dilapidated condition, which by itself establishes that this was a fraud.
Confirmation has come from many sources since amazon.com banned NOBODY DIED AT SANDY HOOK (2015) because it blew the case out of the water and exposed it as an elaborate fraud. One of those has been the report of Richard Plante on one of my blogs, where he reported his experiences in traveling to the school with a friend to pick up some student desks on the cheap. Even more stunning, however, has been the discovery of how they faked the kids using photos of older kids when younger, where Wolfgang Halbig has even produced photos of the Sandy Hook kids grown up, alive and well:
Review the video and you will see extensive and compelling proof that Sandy Hook was a hoax–a drill where no students died, which was done to promote gun control, as members of the Obama Department of Education explained to Paul Preston, when he reached out to his contacts there–as the book itself lays out in spades. Under these circumstances, when Alex Jones is perfectly positioned to blow the case apart (with a little help from his friends), let him not falter and betray his fans and the research community lest he gain a prominent and permanent standing in the Internet Hall of Infamy.
