Conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been found liable for damages in lawsuits brought by parents of children killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting, over his claim the massacre was a hoax. 20 children, aged five and six, and six adults were killed in 2012. The 20-year-old gunman killed his mother before the shooting and killed himself as police arrived at the school.
The shooting was portrayed on Jones’s Infowars show as a hoax involving actors, aimed at increasing gun control. Families of victims said they have been subjected to harassment and death threats from Jones’s followers because of the hoax conspiracy broadcast on Infowars. He has since acknowledged the shooting did occur.
Jones continued his standard policy of failing to turn over documents, including internal records showing how and if Jones and Infowars profited from talking about the school shooting and other mass shootings. This violated court policy and the judge held he had defaulted on the case. This ruling follows a trio of losses for Jones in Texas when a judge in other defamation suits also found that he had failed to comply with court orders to hand over documents.
Jones born 11 February 1974 in Texas, has a confident Sun Jupiter in Aquarius square a bullish Mars in Taurus; with his Sun Jupiter in a true-believer Air Grand Trine to Saturn in Gemini and South Node trine Uranus. Air signs are thinkers and a heavy Air chart can produce ideologues who hang grimly onto their pet theories no matter the physical evidence to the contrary. Or they just like a platform where their ideas attract attention and an audience.
He’s more nerve-stretched than his defiant declarations against the judge and court ruling might suggest. His Solar Arc Pluto, elbowed by this week’s Lunar Eclipse is square his Jupiter giving him a touch of the rules-don’t-apply-to-me fever. But he’s running into discouraging Saturn Pluto influences this December and more jitters and jangles in 2022 – as well as a major upheaval as tr Pluto squares his Uranus and shakes up his Air Grand Trine.
And by 2023/24 he is in real trouble. Tr Pluto opposes his Mars/Pluto midpoint for a trapped, scary, enraging set of circumstances in 2023/24 plus a ‘shocking’ and insecure tr Uranus conjunct his Mars at the same time. And he’ll be into a swamp of uncertainty in 2024 as tr Neptune squares his Saturn on another leg of his Grand Trine. He is facing a game changing and life-altering three years ahead.
From an old May 4 2013 post:
Alex Jones is an American conspiracy junkie, a radio host, author, and documentary filmmaker. He has accused the U.S. government of being involved in the Oklahoma City bombing, 9/11, Sandyhook and now the Boston marathon bombing. He says these are all ’false flags’ – a government and big business collusion to create a New World Order through “manufactured economic crises, sophisticated surveillance tech and—above all—inside-job terror attacks that fuel exploitable hysteria”.
Eh? Who’s exploiting hysteria here? More pots and kettles or in psycho-jargon projecting the darkness in oneself onto others especially the big daddy others. He feeds his paranoia into the gullibility of the neurotic public who appear to be lapping it up.
Born 11 Feb 1974 in Dallas, Texas, he has an Air Grand Trine of Sun Jupiter in Aquarius trine Uranus trine Saturn; with Sun Jupiter square Mars in Taurus, with his Sun and Mars 135 degrees from Pluto.
His chart has fair similarities to that of the late Jorg Haider, Austrian neo-Nazi politician, who was a Sun Jupiter in Aquarius opposition Pluto and trine Mars.
Aquarius’s sense of mission fuelled by substantial quantities of rage against power figures. Not quite sorted out his father issues clearly.
David Icke, another conspiracy entrepreneur, doesn’t have any Aquarius in his chart but he does have a Sun opposition Mars square Pluto with Sun conjunct Jupiter – so similarly stressed Mars Pluto aspects.
Whipping up paranoia is a dangerous tactic.
