In This Manic Rant, Right-Wing Zealot Alex Jones Made An Incredibly Bizarre Claim About His Teenage Sex Life

On his show, amid a custody battle, Alex Jones made an absurd claim about his sexual conquests by age 16

You would think that Alex Jones, embroiled in a heated custody battle with his ex-spouse, would exercise some restraint when publicizing lascivious (and patently false) details about their sex lives. But as we’ve learned in painful fashion over the past year or so, this InfoWars mouthpiece doesn’t adhere to the laws of logic, decency, or decorum.

So while he’s fighting in a court for the right to parent his child, he’s also on television broadcasting information no human of any political affiliation needs or wants to know.


In the video below, posted with the archetypal InfoWars title “Sandy Hook Vampires,” Jones veers way off course into tales of his sexual history, which purportedly includes sleeping with 150 women before he was 16. I’m not sure that any 16-year-old boy has even met 150 women in any capacity, but that’s Alex Jones for you.

Here’s the insane video. I suggest you watch while wearing a blindfold and earplugs.

This video airs at a point in the trial of custody in which Jones testified he was unsure if he was having sex with other women after his fiancé had moved in with him. He’s a little foggy on the timeline, so he asked for a reference tool.

Once again, it’s hard to know what’s proposition is more frightening with people cut from this cloth—that they’re lying … or that they’re not.

We can take some solace in knowing that at least, in the context of his trial, he’s being held to a standard of truth that could wind up with him going to jail if he proves incapable of meeting it.

When the iPhone 11 debuted on September 10, it was met with less enthusiasm than the usual iPhone release. A lot of techies are holding off purchasing the latest gadget until Apple releases a phone with 5G technology.

Major US phone carriers have yet to build out the infrastructure necessary to provide a consistent 5G experience, so Apple didn't feel it necessary to integrate the technology into its latest iPhone.

A dramatic new feature on the iPhone 11 Pro is its three camera lenses. The three lenses give users the the original wide, plus ultrawide and telephoto options.

In an effort to avoid a dystopian sci-fi future where Artificial Intelligence knows pretty much everything about you, and a team of cops led by Tom Cruise run around arresting people for crimes they did not commit because of bad predictive analysis; Bernie Sanders and other Democratic candidates have some proposals on how we can stop it.

It's fun to go to a party, talk to strangers, and try to guess where they're from just by their accents and use of language. It's called 'soda' on the East Coast and 'pop' in the Midwest, right? Well, it looks like a new study has been able to determine where a Humpback whale has been and who he's been hanging out with during his awesome travels just from his song.

In 2009, the U.S. government paid $50 billion to bail out Detroit-based automaker General Motors. In the end, the government would end up losing $11.2 billion on the deal.

Government efforts saved 1.5 million jobs in the United States and a sizable portion of an industry that helped define America in the twentieth century.

As part of the auto industry's upheaval in the wake of the Great Recession, the United Automobile Workers (UAW) made sacrifices in contracts to help put the company on a solid footing after the government bailout.

Fake news is rampant on the internet. Unscrupulous websites are encouraged to create misleading stories about political figures because they get clicks.

A study published by Science Advances found that elderly conservatives are, by far, the worst spearders of fake news. Ultra conservatives over the age of 65 shared about seven times more fake information on social media than moderates and super liberals during the 2016 election.

Get ready for things to get worse.
