Infowars host Alex Jones argues persona in custody dispute

A lawyer defending Jones, a the right-wing radio host and conspiracy theorist, in a child-custody dispute said Jones is a "performance artist" whose on-air persona differs from the private man. Wilhite, in fact, told District Judge Orlinda Naranjo that judging Jones on his rhetoric for the custody case would be like judging Jack Nicholson as if he were actually the Joker from Batman.

But Kelly Jones described her ex-husband as "not a stable person", according to the Austin American-Statesman (http://atxne.ws/2pGyXLz ). "He is a performance artist".

Alex Jones's lawyer in his child custody battle said the unhinged conspiracy monger his client plays on Infowars is nothing but an act.

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. "He broadcasts from home. The children are there, watching him broadcast", she added. "He says he wants to break Alec Baldwin's neck". Which brings us news that broke this weekend in which Alex Jones is now in the middle of a custody battle with his ex-wife.

Turkey to hold constitutional referendum tomorrow
When army officers close to the movement were accused of spearheading a violent coup in the summer of 2016, the purge intensified. Proposing an investigation would require a simple majority in pariament, but opening one would require 60% of MPs to agree.

Syria's Assad says chemical attack '100 percent fabrication'
Denying any involvement whatsoever, the Syrian leader said: "A hundred percent for us, it's fabrication". The OPCW's Fact Finding Mission in Syria investigates alleged attacks, but does not apportion blame.

Oil demand growth seen slowing for a second year
Demand growth for 2017 is now expected to be 1.3 million barrels per day, down from the IEA's previous forecast of 1.4 million. The combination of factors could keep a lid on oil prices, which have risen in the past six months after a three-year slump.

Jones' Infowars site was a hub for anti-Clinton conspiracies during the presidential campaign and Trump publicly thanked him for his support.

"Sandy Hook is a completely fake, with actors, in my view, manufactured".

Jones has claimed that he occasionally speaks with Trump on the phone, and a fair number of Trump's unfounded allegations ― like his claim that millions of people voted illegally for Hillary Clinton ― were theories that InfoWars earlier promoted. He called Schiff an "archetypal cocksucker" and a "fairy", and said, "I'll beat your goddamn ass, you son of a bitch". In one from 2015, he told his then-12-year-old son that "you're a good little knight who's going to grow up, I know, to be a great fighter against the enemy". In 2015, Trump told him, "Your reputation is awesome".

Still, the argument that anything and everything Jones has bellowed on his online show is dismissable under the umbrella of entertainment is to ignore the real-world consequences his rantings have had. Another of her attorneys, Robert Hoffman, said she "is a wonderful mother who has had her kids turned against her".
