Which is certainly a first for me.
Who is this "Allen" that was quoted?

I do remember a few years ago a talk radio host (Hal Turner, mentioned in the post) admitted to something like this. It's just barely plausible. Even then, it does not mean that Jones was knowingly working for the FBI, he might have just been a schlep willing to take on interns from a front company without looking too deeply into that company. If anything, it would be a way to get an informant into Infowars.

No idea who "Allen" is. You might want to check back through the blog posts, normally the blog covers aerospace topics and cats along with various rants against Trump and the 'regressive left' .

And that's the "too pat" part I was talking about. Just enough truth so that someone who follows this will understand it, and maybe get suckered. But it's just so convenient that, years before Turner was outed as working with the government, this guy just happened to have a couple of FBI agents just drop that tidbit in his lap (completely unsolicited, of course), and yet, he never bothered to mention it to anyone else, despite being deep enough into the CT scene that he told the FBI to get lost.

Well, this is fun.

I'm not going to link to any sources because I've not yet found one without some NSFW content, but notorious homophobe and transphobe Alex Jones was livestreaming and opened all the tabs on his phone - revealing he browses trans porn. Worth googling if you're somewhere where you're not going to get in trouble.

Yup, the hypocrisy of this one is just too delicious to resist.

One of the world loudest screechers against gay anything.... Can't wait to see how he dances around this with his viewer base.

Yet another classic case of:

The One Place Where Alex Jones Will Never Be Banned

Quote:
And so I was very glad to encounter the subreddit r/InfowarriorRides: a Smithsonian for pictures of opinionated cars and a helpful field guide to the motor vehicles of Infowars. InfowarriorRides collects and displays photographs of vehicles that have been excessively decorated with conspiratorial right-wing flair. The cars are basically what you’d get if Pimp My Ride starred the clinically insane.

Another setback for Jones and a big step forward for sane people.

Quote:
Judge Scott Jenkins ruled in an Austin, Texas courtroom that Jones' motion to have the case dismissed has been denied, bringing the suit one step closer to trial.

Thursday's ruling marks yet another setback for Jones, who has been mired in legal and professional trouble for months. Earlier this month, Jones was effectively purged from much of social media, with YouTube terminating his account and Facebook unpublishing his pages. Apple took action, too, removing his full library of podcasts.

Amid all that, Jones was accused in the Heslin case of destroying evidence relevant to the suit after deleting a number of posts on Twitter in order to comply with the social media company's rules. Jones said on his program that he had his staff delete the tweets in order to "take the super high road."

"I was like, looking up some reporter we’re trying to hire today and punched in some number and it popped up porn on my phone,” he said.

“Everyone’s had porn pop up on their phones hundreds of times.”

Jones, who last month called drag queens “satanic” beings who should be “consumed by fire,” then gave his account of the original incident.

“So I’m sitting there with a phone, on air, showing it to everybody because I couldn’t get a URL up in the studio, and then like, some thing pops up, like oh my god, and I looked at it,” he said.

“The news blurred it out because there was nothing there. They blurred it to then say something was there, and when you went to it, it was some porn menu.

“I’ve probably had porn menus pop up 500 times on my phone,” he added.
So there you go. He was looking to hire someone, so he punched in a number and trans porn came up, and he was on air trying to show the viewers something and trans porn came up, and the news blurred it out to make it look like there was trans porn there but there wasn't, and it was just a porn menu anyway of exactly the same type that everybody has on their phone the entire time.

I'm convinced.

You didn't quote the best part!


Quote:
The fringe conspiracy theorist continued: “There’s two types of people: people that look at porn and people that lie about it,”

This just in! Jones admits he was lying about not watching trans porn!

His Infowars channel got banned from Twitter aswell.

This means that the only thing that he still has, is his Instagram account.

For anyone who's 'Jonesing for Jones' I did stumble across two videos, the first compiling a list of 45 failed predictions made by Alex Jones and supporters.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxt_bEDdTTc


The second a list of over 120 untrue statements Jones made on air.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7t0fqD83TI


These date from 2012, I can remember seeing an earlier list of failed prediction and contradictory statements from Jones. Does anyone know whether anyone kept up the task as I think it is fairly instructive.

There's a list of top ten predictions that never came true on the Watch Mojo Channel.

That might give you enough clues to google him up, or maybe someone else remembers his name.

This means that the only thing that he still has, is his Instagram account.
And his own website, available uncensored globally. Yet he will still sob and rage that he has been censored.

Just tried using google to search for the page title you gave and the only thing it returned was this thread. Talk about the memory hole...


But seriously all Jones is really complaining about is that his reach has been curtailed, and when you are in the 'health supplement' business anything that reduces your ability to scare a growing audience into buying your products is a major threat.


This roughly half-an-hour long video by YouTuber Jeff Holiday covers the basics of the InfoWars alternate-medicine scam.

Alex Jones got hacked, but insists it's a conspiracy.

The hack took place less than 24 hours ago; it is undoubtedly the hacker or hacker group that then reported this to the establishment corporate press in an attempt to scare business away from Infowarstore.com.
I don't know what a "zero day hack" means, or what "leftist stay behind networks" are, but I love that Jones misspelled his own website at least once. Maybe ...warsstore and ...warstore alias to the same site, but I really hope that one of them gets re-directed to a joke site instead.

Zero-day means the developers of the software are unaware of the vulnerability (Zero-day (computing)WP). You're on your own with "leftist stay behind networks"
