Cheri Roberts put together a pretty good twiter list for the trial [Link].

Some highlights:

During confab at bench on AJ's smirking, it got hot b/t Minton & Hoffman; Judge Naranjo said "stop it, stop it." But smoke alarm hot? Nah.

While we wait for the trial to resume, a question. Do Americans in court have a right to smirk? If no, could Article V Convention add it in.

Early reports from the Beast:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2 ... fense.html

One Quote from that article:
It seemed a remarkably tame performance by Alex Jones standards, although he appeared at times to be struggling. Jones seemed incapable of answering questions directly and would repeatedly shake his head and squint at the ceiling in dismay at the objections of his ex-wife’s attorney Bobby Newman. Squeezed into his suit, he seemed to dominate the courtroom, largely due to his booming, gravelly voice that makes “breakfast” sound almost like a threat.
And from Buzzfeed:

https://www.buzzfeed.com/charliewarzel/ ... .kkNJBJ9Mv
AUSTIN — Halfway through the second official day of his 10-day civil custody trial, Alex Jones reclined in his chair and mopped sweat from his brow while watching a shirtless, pantsless version of himself hawk male vitality supplements on a courtroom television screen. It was hardly the most outlandish moment of the afternoon.

Indeed, the first full day of Jones’ battle to retain custody of his three young children was filled with bizarre allegations — claims that Jones took his shirt off during a joint family counseling session and once blamed his inability to recall basic facts about his children during a pretrial deposition on having “had a big bowl of chili for lunch."

Per Twitter, Alex Jones lost his custody trial. Joint custody with wife to determine physical location.

VERDICT: Kelly Jones gets joint custody of children and gets to decide who they live with.

Alex Jones does not have children. This whole case was a fraud. These alleged children are crisis actors.

Alex Jones Suffers Defeat In Custody Hearing
"Mr. Jones is like a cult leader," the conspiracy blogger's ex-wife told the jury. "And we've seen the horrific damage cult leaders do to their followers."
Posted on April 28, 2017, 03:27 GMT

AUSTIN — After a grueling 10-day trial, a jury has ruled in favor of Infowars founder and CEO Alex Jones' ex-wife, Kelly, in the custody of their three children.

The jury, which deliberated for roughly nine and a half hours, ruled Thursday night to give Kelly Jones joint custody with the ability to dictate the residence of the children. Previously, Ms. Jones had joint custody with limited, supervised visitation rights with residence dictated by Alex Jones.

It was a defeat for Alex Jones, who watched the verdict with a stoic face and left promptly after the verdict without talking to reporters. Upon hearing the verdict, Kelly Jones dabbed her eyes with a tissue and hugged her lawyer, Robert Hoffman.

Moments later, Kelly Jones spoke briefly to the press, thanking God for the verdict.

"I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful support system and I just pray that what's happened to my family that people can understand what parental alienation syndrome is and get an awareness of it so we can stop this from happening to others," she said.

Chobani - as in the yogurt company - is apparently suing Alex Jones over a conspiracy theory he launched that targeted them. Documents will likely be hard to locate - based on the article, it looks like they're suing in state court, and asserting damages of "at least" $10,000. So it looks like Alex's legal team is going to have to litigate a case in Twin Falls, Idaho - which should be a lot of fun for them to travel to/from. :-D

LA Times: Alex Jones settles Chobani lawsuit and retracts comments about refugees in Twin Falls, Idaho:
Alex Jones backed down. Again.

The far-right conspiracy theorist agreed Wednesday to settle a defamation lawsuit filed against him by Greek yogurt manufacturer Chobani. The key component of the settlement agreement required him to retract inflammatory comments about refugees and the company he made on his Infowars broadcast last month.

“During the week of April 10, 2017, certain statements were made on the Infowars, Twitter feed and YouTube channel regarding Chobani LLC that I now understand to be wrong. The tweets and video have now been retracted, and will not be re-posted,” Jones said. “On behalf of Infowars, I regret that we mischaracterized Chobani, its employees and the people of Twin Falls, Idaho, the way we did.”

It marks the latest blow to Jones, who in March apologized and issued a retraction to a Washington, D.C.-based pizzeria for his broadcast’s role in pushing a false story about a child sex ring that involved Hillary Clinton.

* * *

And just over two weeks ago, Jones’ ex-wife won the right to determine who his three children would live with in a high-profile custody case in which his lawyers argued his on-air personality was a performance.

* * *

Just a few weeks ago, Jones had dug in his heels when Chobani filed the lawsuit.

“You just ran into a Texan,” Jones said. “So you get ready because we’re never backing down and our audience is never backing down.”

Is there such thing as an official white house dentist? If so how do we get Orly appointed?

The WH has it's own dental office, so if he is lucky, he already has a chair.

That's good because since there is already a Lincoln bedroom they probably don't need a Lincoln dental chair.

Didn't Alex Jones claim during his custody proceedings that he's an entertainer and that Infowars isn't who he really is, or something like that? After losing, you'd think he'd learn. But no.

INFOWARS' ALEX JONES CALLS MANCHESTER VICTIMS 'LIBERAL TRENDIES' WHO PROMOTE OPEN BORDERS
