Lawyers for the families of children and adults killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School disclosed Monday that child pornography was found in electronic files sent to them by conspiracy theorist Infowars host Alex Jones.

The pornography was found in email metadata files Jones' attorneys turned over to the families' lawyers as part of the discovery process of a defamation lawsuit, which was filed in a Connecticut court last year in response to discussions on Jones' show about the school shooting being a hoax.

Jones' attorney, Norman Pattis, said the child pornography was in emails sent to Jones that were never opened and he denied Jones did anything wrong. Pattis said federal authorities are investigating who sent the emails.

Appearing angry on his web show based in Austin, Texas, Jones accused one of the families' lawyers, Christopher Mattei, of planting the child pornography in the files in an effort to frame Jones. He also offered a $1 million reward for information on who sent the emails containing child porn.

In a motion filed in Waterbury Superior Court on Monday, lawyers for the families accused Jones of threatening Mattei by naming him on the show, showing his photo and wrongly accusing him of planting the child pornography. The motion will be discussed at a court hearing on Tuesday. Pattis denied that Jones threatened Mattei.

"Total war! You want it, you got it!" Jones said on the show while talking about Mattei, a Democrat who ran unsuccessfully for state attorney general last year. "I'm not into kids like your Democratic party. ... So get ready!"

Other lawyers for the families, William Bloss, Alinor Sterling and Matthew Blumethal, said in the motion that they notified the FBI about the numerous child porn images.

The whole thing is very suspicious, especially when you release the Russian's are known to plant this type of stuff on people they want to get rid of.
why would Russians want to be rid of alex jones? he stirs up the kind of distractions and bipartisanship the Russians love to disseminate
This is a play straight out of the CIA nigger play book
I can see it glowing in the dark from here
If it was better staged I would agree, but this is too shitty. Seems more like a plant by some retarded faggot activist.
Thanks for the heads up, FBI.

The Sperminator strikes again — this time donating his seed to an 18-year-old who lives in an East Harlem shelter. Her daughter, due July 12, will make it number 50 for the serial sperm donor.

Ari Nagel, the 43-year-old CUNY math professor who donates his sperm to women across the globe for free, has racked up serious spawn this past year: 15 babies since last Father’s Day, bringing the grand total to 48. One woman is due to give birth in early July, followed by Kaienja Garrick, who lives in the East River Family Center, a family shelter with a shared bathroom and kitchen.

“I think it’s a nice shelter. It’s probably nicer than my apartment,” Nagel told The Post, adding that he didn’t know how old Garrick was when she reached out to him last August. “I never asked her age — I try to help whoever asks,” he said. “I think Kai is more mature than I was at her age after everything she has been through.”

Garrick has been on her own for about two years after leaving her mother’s Jamaica, Queens, home because “we fought a lot.” Without other family nearby (her father lives in Georgia), Garrick, who is unemployed, entered the shelter system.

Last August, a month after her 18th birthday, she decided to try to get pregnant.

“I knew if I could raise my little sister, I can raise my own baby,” she said of her 7-year-old sibling. “I’ve been taking care of her since she was born.”

Kaienja and her girlfriend of three years, Dee Slobert, ruled out going to a clinic, chalking it up to hassle and expense. (Slobert, 21, lives in a different Manhattan shelter with her mother and brother.)

That’s when Garrick did an online search for “free sperm donation” and found Nagel.

How could Homeless Pay
>Technically homeless
>Hasn't even finished high school
>Thinks she can raise a child because she spent time taking care of her younger sister.
This is why people want to stop paying into social programs. Sure, it helps some motivated people to get back on the horse, but there are many others who learn to be helpless and just suckle the government tit. Even her mom, who got it on with what seems to be a dead-beat dad, knew that this girl is fucking up.

Leonard Pozner, whose 6-year-old son was killed in the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School, has been the been battling against conspiracy theorists for years, and on Tuesday he scored a victory against deniers who claimed the shooting that left 20 first grade children dead never happened.

A Wisconsin judge issued a summary judgment in favor of Pozner in a defamation lawsuit against the authors of a book called Nobody Died at Sandy Hook, a 400-page book purporting a series of false claims, including ideas that the mass shooting was a FEMA drill to promote gun control and that the grieving father had fabricated his son Noah's death certificate, which is a crime in Connecticut.

"Mr. Pozner has sought for years to try to get these conspiracy theorists to understand that his son really was a person and that his son really did die and as a last resort we initiated this defamation case," Pozner's lawyer, Jake Zimmerman told NPR.

The lawsuit focused narrowly on the claim by James Fetzer and Mike Palecek that Pozner had forged or faked the death certificate, though it also alluded to other convoluted theories advanced by Fetzer on his blog, including the theory that Noah was not Pozner's son.

"Fetzer acted with actual malice," court documents say, also accusing the writer of publishing statements knowing that they "were false or with reckless disregard for the truth or falsity of the statements."

Fetzer responded to the decision in a tweet, writing, "My day in Court did not turn out as expected." He insisted that he was "able to produce decisive proof the [copy of] death certificate" he retrieved from the Internet is a fabrication, but said the judge ruled against him because his evidence "lacks certification."

Does Alex Jones even have money? All people will get is his inventory of supplements and water filters.
He’s worth about $10 million and in 2014 infowars was making like $20 million in a year, mostly off of gullible people buying water filters and supplements. His business model is to get his fans riled up or fear something, then sell the cure. The famous bit about “turning the freaking frogs gay?” He talked about his water filters right after that segment.

>A lesser source of revenue for InfoWars are its "money bomb" telethons, which resemble "public-radio fund drives", except that InfoWars is a for-profit institution. Charlie Warzel reports that "three former Infowars employees told BuzzFeed News that a money bomb could easily raise $100,000 in a day".[46]

>As of 2014, "operations were bringing in more than $20 million a year in revenue ... according to testimony Mr. Jones gave in a court case". Most of his revenue in 2014 "came from the sale of products like supplements", according to records "viewed by The New York Times".[31] 2014 court proceedings also show that InfoWars was successful enough for Jones and his wife at that time to be planning to "build a swimming pool complex ... featuring a waterfall and dining cabana with a stone fireplace. Mr. Jones bought four Rolex watches in one day in 2014, and spent $40,000 on a saltwater aquarium. Assets of Jones and his wife at the time "included a $70,000 grand piano, $50,000 in firearms and $752,000 in silver, gold and precious metals".[31]
His business model using fear...you fucking twat :D thats exactly what your own government is doing all the time but you cant see through that yeat use the same accusation on someone else.good luck and give up your rights before airplanes start crashing through your house.
I heard an old clip of Jones berating some survivors and kin of the Aurora theater shooting, and this nigga says,”Did you know that automatic rifles are involved in two percent of crimes?”

Dude, so in a random sample of 100 crimes, an automatic rifle would have been used in 2 of them? Over tens of thousands of crimes, that number is gigantic!

Donald Trump has claimed a wave of new polling from the 2020 presidential campaign season is fake after recent surveys showed every major Democrat vying for the White House besting the president in the upcoming election.

“The Fake News has never been more dishonest than it is today,” the president began in a series of Wednesday morning tweets. “There new weapon of choice is Fake Polling, sometimes referred to as Suppression Polls (they suppress the numbers).”

“The Fake (Corrupt) News Media said they had a leak into polling done by my campaign which, by the way and despite the phony and never ending Witch Hunt, are the best numbers WE have ever had,” he continued, addressing reports from Tuesday that said he had instructed his aides to deny internal polling data that showed former Vice President Joe Biden beating him in 2020.

“They reported Fake numbers that they made up & don’t even exist,” Mr Trump wrote. “WE WILL WIN AGAIN!”

The president’s comments came after a Quinnipiac University poll released this week showed head-to-head matchups against him and several leading 2020 Democrats.

Mr Trump trailed Mr Biden — the clear frontrunner thus far in the Democratic primaries — by a whopping 13 per cent, while Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren and others all held strong advantages as well.

His remarks also came after a New York Times story looked at internal polling conducted by Tony Fabrizio across 17 states, reportedly showing Mr Trump trailing the former vice president in several key states for his re-election.

Despite his claims of “fake polling,” a vast range of surveys conducted by a variety of news organisations, polling groups and universities show the president losing against his top opponents time and time again.

Sadly, not we. You will beat them; I'm in a deep red state, and not one of the ones on the edge of voting Dem, like Georgia or Texas (fucking Texas, of all places). Either way, I'll be rooting from the sidelines with my token "I object to this" vote.
You're far more woke than I wouldve been if I was in your shoes. My family are have been conservatives since the 1800s and my roots go back to the 1700s in the Ozarks before we came west.

I truly think that if I grew up in a state like that I would be a retarded conservative selling lies just like every other entiltled white retard in the state.

You're better than I wouldve ever been if I wasn't blessed with an education and forced into situations that challenged everything I knew.
So it's basically 2016 again and all the polls claim Hiliary has a 99% chance of winning the election while Trump is guaranteed to lose.


and yet another grammar error on my part. the alcohol is starting to kick in.
Honestly, up until college, I was just another pretentious centrist, sitting around and patting myself on the back for saying both sides were equally bad. It's a pretty popular trend, even here in Bumfuck Nowhere.

Then I actually went off to college, learned some critical thinking skills, legitimately started evaluating some of the claims and policies on both sides of the aisle, and I started to move left. Watching the first six months of Trump was what finally made me realize how intellectually bankrupt and morally deficient the right really is.

Also, just for future posts: if you don't point out the spelling errors, I won't, either. Your secret'll be safe with me.

2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders - who thinks Americans would be "delighted" to pay more in taxes - touted his 'Economic Bill of Rights" during a Wednesday speech about Democratic Socialism.

Suggesting that he's destined to carry out FDR's "proposed economic bill of rights" which the former president was unable to enact due to an untimely death, Sanders pitched the crowd on "a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights," as RedState's Elizabeth Vaughn reports.

Yet as political expert and radio host Mark Levin pointed out on Fox News's Hannity, Sanders has essentially plagiarized Joseph Stalin's 1936 Soviet constitution, and "stolen his agenda."

A Bill of Rights that establishes once and for all that every American, regardless of his or her income in entitled to:

The right to a decent job that pays a living wage
The right to quality health care
The right to a complete education
The right to affordable housing
The right to a clean environment
The right to a secure retirement

It is if you care about the economy.
this is exactly like every other thread on this board, with the only difference being that this thread isnt about a conservative. it seems you can dish it out, but cant take it.
>free health care will cost the same as we already spend
>there are 7 abandoned homes per 1 homeless person
>clean energy is the most affordable and cheapest energy
>>clean energy is the most affordable and cheapest energy
Literal, irrevocable brain damage.
Half of the developed world provides three or more of those, and until the 50's, so did we.

No reason we can't do it again. Indeed, it'd be easier than ever, now that we have reserve currency status, use that fact to fund the first one, and that funds all the rest.

The first time I met Elizabeth Warren, she had just come home from a walk with her husband and her dog at Fresh Pond, the reservoir near her house in Cambridge, Mass. It was a sunny day in February, a couple of weeks after Warren announced her candidacy for president, and she was wearing a navy North Face jacket and black sneakers with, as usual, rimless glasses and small gold earrings. Her hair had drifted a bit out of place.

The dog, Bailey, is a golden retriever who had already been deployed by her presidential campaign in a tweet a week earlier, a pink-tongued snapshot with the caption “Bailey will be your Valentine.” Warren started toweling off his paws and fur, which were coated in mud and ice from the reservoir, when she seemed to realize that it made more sense to hand this task over to her husband, Bruce Mann.

In the kitchen, Warren opened a cupboard to reveal an array of boxes and canisters of tea. She drinks many cups a day (her favorite morning blend is English breakfast). Pouring us each a mug, she said, “This is a fantasy.” She was talking about the enormous platform she has, now that she’s running for president, to propagate policy proposals that she has been thinking about for decades. “It’s this moment of being able to talk about these ideas, and everybody says, ‘Oh, wait, I better pay attention to this.’” She went on: “It’s not about me; it’s about those ideas. We’ve moved the Overton window” — the range of ideas deemed to merit serious consideration — “on how we think about taxes. And I think, I think we’re about to move it on child care.”

>Fox News Pivots for a more Free America, Throws Trump Under Bus in Process

A nationwide Fox News poll released Sunday shows President Donald Trump trailing Senator Bernie Sanders, 49 percent to 40 percent among all registered voters nationwide.

The Fox poll also showed Biden leading Trump by 49 percent to 39 percent. Also beating Trump in the poll were Senators Elizabeth Warren (43%-41%) and Kamala Harris (42%-41%), and Mayor Pete Buttigieg (41%-40%) of South Bend, Indiana.

Also, support for impeachment is up five points among Democrats since June 2018 (69 percent vs. 74 percent now) and up 15 among independents (25 percent to 40 percent today). About 9 in 10 Republicans have consistently opposed impeachment.

The Fox poll was conducted June 9-12, 2019 under the joint direction of Beacon Research (D) and Shaw & Company (R), this Fox News Poll includes interviews with 1,001 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide who spoke with live interviewers on both landlines and cellphones. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters.

Sanders acknowledged on Sunday that "polls go up and polls go down" but insisted that the survey showed he was the strongest candidate to defeat Trump.

"I think we can win in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan and some of the other battleground states," Sanders said on "Fox News Sunday."

>Why would I go to that doctor?
Because he's the only one in your area covered by your insurance
this, i think this is the one shot we've got for the pendulum to swing back far enough to elect anything but a centrist dem

Even if we fail we have to keep pressing the neoliberals to shift toward progress. Lets not get too caught up in our own egocentric beliefs to not see that progressive liberalism is becoming more and more popular. Unseating the corporate left might just take a heroicly slow effort.

Imagine if Bernie Sanders gave up his fight in the 80s when America elected an absolute dunce like George Bush Sr. Imagine if he gave up when Bill Clinton the neoliberal became president. Or more likely when George Bush Jr. fucked everyone over more than we could have ever imagined.

Or if he rested on the laurels when a black man who passed a dirty version of universal healthcare was elected.

Bernie never gave in. Be like Bernie. Keep up the fight, someday we will achieve a nation that conservatives will be forced to admit was the right decision all along.
Solely due to name recognition. He's been plummeting in the polls lately, because he knows he can't afford to let the public actually listen to him & has been hiding until the debates.

I'm personally expecting Bernie to tear him a new asshole over his laughably illiberal track record.
The dude is so outclassed Beto O'Rourke could potentially beat him on charisma alone. The only candidates that falter head to head are Kamela Harris or the shitters at the bottom.

People who think Biden has a fighting chance are the same people who thought Ted Cruz was a viable candidate.

>The economic arguments adopted by Britain and the US in the 1980s led to vastly increased inequality – and gave the false impression that this outcome was not only inevitable, but good.

In most rich countries, inequality is rising, and has been rising for some time. Many people believe this is a problem, but, equally, many think there’s not much we can do about it. After all, the argument goes, globalisation and new technology have created an economy in which those with highly valued skills or talents can earn huge rewards. Inequality inevitably rises. Attempting to reduce inequality via redistributive taxation is likely to fail because the global elite can easily hide their money in tax havens. Insofar as increased taxation does hit the rich, it will deter wealth creation, so we all end up poorer.

One strange thing about these arguments, whatever their merits, is how they stand in stark contrast to the economic orthodoxy that existed from roughly 1945 until 1980, which held that rising inequality was not inevitable, and that various government policies could reduce it. What’s more, these policies appear to have been successful. Inequality fell in most countries from the 1940s to the 1970s. The inequality we see today is largely due to changes since 1980.

In both the US and the UK, from 1980 to 2016, the share of total income going to the top 1% has more than doubled. After allowing for inflation, the earnings of the bottom 90% in the US and UK have barely risen at all over the past 25 years. More generally, 50 years ago, a US CEO earned on average about 20 times as much as the typical worker. Today, the CEO earns 354 times as much.

nigger are you too stupid to extract the effect on inequality from the numbers he gave you? the average worker is producing more value than before, leading to higher GDP, and seeing no benefit. all of it is going to the upper class. the middle class is shrinking and people are having trouble affording housing let alone healthcare. its an unsustainable economic model. the poor will end up spending less and less, corporations will try to squeeze them further and/or go out of business. then the poor get laid off, spending continues to decrease, more people get pissed off, GDP and tax revenue decline sharply

SPOILER: It all goes to hell, this whole country by 2025. That's all classes of society, btw. [\spoiler]
All economic models are unsustainable. Capitalism has the benefit of longevity.
no one is arguing about abolishing capitalism
You're right, they're not.

The Ohio jury has spoken in the libel case against Oberlin and it has spoken loudly and ferociously. In addition to the more than $11 million in regular damages that Oberlin already has to pay Gibson’s Bakery the jury has piled on an additional $33.2 million in punitive damages.

This was a very angry jury. Under Ohio law, punitive damages are supposed to be capped at twice the amount of compensatory damages, which are damages meant to compensate for the plaintiff’s injuries. Instead, the jury hit Oberlin, and its Dean of Students, Meredith Raimondo, with punitive damages that are triple the amount of the compensatory damages for a whopping total verdict of more than $44 million.

Punitive damages are not meant to compensate the plaintiff. They are designed to punish the defendant for truly egregious, intentionally wrongful behavior. So, it’s pretty obvious that the jury felt that Oberlin had behaved in a truly outrageous fashion. The jury is apparently so angry that they are willing to impose sanctions that will presumably be pared back, or perhaps overturned altogether, in order to express just how angry they are at Oberlin.

lot of faggots and retards in this thread. its as if a short bus crashed into a gay pride parade.
They were convicted of libel yet never engaged in libel in an official capacity. Their official statement was that they were waiting for the facts to come out before coming to a conclusion. It is not illegal to have early misgivings about a situation - unless of course society has been trained into a state of anti-intellectual anti-college outrage and you let 9 plebe jurists decide the fate of free speech alongside a cucklord of a judge.
>They were convicted of libel yet never engaged in libel in an official capacity.
When officials of an organization act in their capacity as an official, the organization is liable. This would be the case for any other tort: harassment, negligence, literally anything else. A faculty dean takes a bunch of grad students to the river and one of them drowns, the university is on the hook. If a Boeing hiring manager engages in racial discrimination, Boeing is on the hook. It doesn't matter that the official policy of Oberlin and Boeing is pro-diversity and anti-drowning. Acts by officials in official capacities are official actions of the corporation involved.

>It is not illegal to have early misgivings about a situation - unless of course society has been trained into a state of anti-intellectual anti-college outrage and you let 9 plebe jurists decide the fate of free speech alongside a cucklord of a judge.
You've trained yourself into such a state of anti-intellectual anti-judicial outrage that you want to tear the American legal system limb from limb to get your desired outcome.
I believe in free speech in general. I defend Alex Jones on most occasions, for example (except the sandy hook thing).

The university was not at fault, and the damages if substantiated should have been levied against the students themselves.

Your persistent belief in liability shows that you are too far up the broken law systems ass to formulate a conscious opinion on the matter.
...and if that same university told students to beat the crap out of two bakery owners because they were gay, ya wouldn't want them on the hook?

Even with slightly lower numbers he crushes the trumpeter. Still ahead of Sanders and Warren.


President Trump has cut into former Vice President Joe Biden's lead in Wisconsin and the two are in a statistical dead heat in Michigan and Pennsylvania, according to a new poll of the 2020 race.

But the latest battleground states survey from Firehouse-Optimus also finds Trump’s approval rating is underwater in all three of the Midwestern states, which are the lynchpins of his reelection strategy.

If the 2016 map stays the same but Democrats are able to win back Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania, they will win the Electoral College and take the White House back from Trump.'

The poll comes as Trump is set to launch his reelection drive with a campaign rally in Florida later on Tuesday, with more than 20 Democrats vying to oust him from the White House in 2020.

The president is polling the weakest in Wisconsin, although his approval rating and his standing against Biden have improved some in recent months.

Biden leads Trump 46 percent to 40 percent in the Badger State. Biden had a 12-point lead over Trump in the same survey from March. Trump’s approval rating in the state has ticked up from 41 percent positive and 54 percent negative in March to 44 positive and 51 negative in June.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) responded Monday to comedian Jon Stewart’s criticism of his handling of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund, saying that he didn’t know why Stewart was “all bent out of shape.”

McConnell’s comments, made in an interview with “Fox & Friends,” came one day after Stewart blasted the Kentucky Republican’s leadership on the issue.

“I want to make it clear that this has never been dealt with compassionately by Senator McConnell,” Stewart said on “Fox News Sunday.” “He has always held out until the very last minute, and only then, under intense lobbying and public shaming, has he even deigned to move on it.”

Asked about Stewart’s criticism, McConnell argued Monday that “many things in Congress happen at the last minute.” He added that the fund, which provides compensation to first responders and others who are sick or dying from illnesses linked to their work at the 9/11 attack sites, will be fully funded.

“We have never failed to address this issue, and we will address it again,” McConnell said. “I don’t know why he’s all bent out of shape, but we will take care of the 9/11 victims compensation fund.”

President Trump late Saturday ramped up his attacks against The New York Times, accusing the newspaper of committing "a virtual act of Treason" over its report about the U.S. increasing cyberattacks on Russia's electric power grid.

"Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia," Trump tweeted. "This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country."

Trump claimed in a separate tweet that the story was "NOT TRUE!"

"Anything goes with our Corrupt News Media today," he added. "They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence! These are true cowards and without doubt, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!"

The Times stood by its story, saying on Twitter that "accusing the press of treason is dangerous."

"We described the article to the government before publication," the newspaper's communications department said. "As our story notes, President Trump’s own national security officials said there were no concerns."

>Accusing the press of treason is dangerous. We described the article to the government before publication. As our story notes, President Trump’s own national security officials said there were no concerns.

The Times on Saturday published a report about the United States's efforts to penetrate Russia's power grid. The Times, citing current and former government officials, noted that the actions are a warning to Moscow on how the Trump administration is using new authorities to unleash cyber tools in an aggressive manner.

How come The Hill, your ultimate insider source of TRUE FACTS AND LOGIC never mentioned a thing about Bill and Hillary Clinton's connection to billionaire pedophile Jeffery Epstein until after the election and then when The Hill finally did get around to it, they tried to tie it to Trump, even though Trump has been publicly ridiculing Epstein and his amigos for over two decades? Bill Clinton went for rides on The Lolita Express, Trump would never touch that shit with 10 foot sanitary stick, but if you read The Hill's reporting it reads like that exact opposite is true.
Because you and the world only have imaginary evidence on Hillary. You shits did Benghazi for basically all of the Obama Presidency (who fully cooperated) and found jack shit.
Anthony Weiner just got out of prison, but the left will continue to blindly see their side as saints and the Republicans as 100% corrupt. Distrust involves a lot of psychological projection.
>switches to Weiner now
Sorry, but you gotta condemn your shitlords first before you get to use that one, we already called him a shit.
Ignored. Let's talk about how the Military is actively going around Trump because they think he's a traitor and an active agent of Russia.

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., is in full force with his push for socialism as he looks to increase support for his 2020 presidential campaign, and is calling for unproven potentially disruptive change in the United States.

Days after an address at George Washington University in which he rolled out his platform, Sanders brought his message of wages to "Fox News Sunday."

Wallace challenged Sanders by referring to criticism based on the idea that while the senator is marketing democratic socialism as a way to create social programs, it really involves a more "dramatic change" to the financial foundation of the country.

Sanders admitted that this is "basically true," as his plans involve stifling innovative businesses, putting more red tape on over-the-counter drugs, and government takeover of healthcare that world end Medicare as we know it.

“If people want to accuse me of believing in that, I plead guilty. That's what I believe in," the socialist said.

Wallace asked Sanders if his platform includes support for government control of major institutions. He brought up a quote from 1976 where Sanders said, "I favor the public ownership of utilities, banks and major industries."

When asked if he still believed in this, Sanders did not directly answer the question but did not deny it.

Discriminating against the top 1% is just as bad as racial discrimination and gender discrimination. Bernie might as well be a racist and a sexist.
Full Commie Russian Tard
Got a chuckle out of me

It will be sad when Bernie wins and all his vetoes get overturned by democrats. Have to vote the swamp out of the Senate first.
