Alex Jones offered his theory as to why the Trump White House is beset with leakers.

On Tuesday, the “InfoWars” host told listeners that a plot between the deep state and Amazon boss Jeff Bezos existed and spied on Trump using cell phones, lasers and light bulbs.

“If you don’t think Bezos is spying on you, sir, you’re crazy. He’s the richest man in the world. He hates your guts,” said Jones, while addressing Trump directly. “The head of the CIA said six years ago, ‘we’re going to listen to you over your appliances.’ They can listen over light bulbs. Yes, through the new light bulbs. They can listen through anything. It’s all resonance. And it’s all with sensors bouncing back up — these light bulbs have special sensors in them,” said Jones.

“They’ve got lasers on your windows listening. They’ve got people inside they’re paying off. They’re listening over the phones. They’re listening over the apps. They’ve got stuff over the smart TVs they can break into,” he added.

Jones even said that Trump himself might be a leaker since he was one of the few White House officials authorized to carry a cell phone.

The issue of leaks — long a problem for the Trump White House — took on renewed resonance this week after Axios reporter Jonathan Swan spoke to some of his leakers about their reasons for sharing information. Far from Amazon robots and deep state plots — Swan wrote that most of his people did it for a mix of personal vendettas, score-settling or to make sure that their side of a losing policy argument was given a public airing.

Jones has long been known for wild conspiracy theories and unprovable speculation. His dismissal of the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre as a hoax resulted in a defamation lawsuit from the parents of survivors. President Trump was interviewed by Jones in 2015.

Perhaps it was inevitable.

On Monday, Alex Jones extended a formal invitation to rapper Kanye West to appear on his radio show InfoWars. The notorious Internet conspiracy theorist said he had been impressed in recent days by West’s stand against the “thought police.”

“.@kanyewest I admire your bold moves against the thought police. And if you want to see these control-freak vampires really go crazy, please join me on my broadcast!??’?” said Jones in a tweet Monday.

Just before the invitation, Jones retweeted a terse West nugget about the “thought police” and efforts to silence “freedom of thought.”

Over the last few days, West has stunned his liberal fans with cryptic tweets and an apparent growing embrace of Trumpian ideas. Things got going last weekend after West tweeted his approval of Candace Owens, an African-American, right-wing Twitter personality, and fierce critic of #BlackLivesMatter.

West’s fans — and the broader Twitter left-wing complex — largely reacted with horror.

The rapper has triggered fans pretty consistently since then, dropping such liberal kryptonite as:

“Self victimization is a disease.”

“Constantly bringing up the past keeps you stuck there.”

“We have freedom of speech but not freedom of thought.”

West had long been chummy with Trump in a friendship that predates the real estate magnate’s rise to the White House. During the transition, West met with Trump at Trump Tower in Manhattan where the two discussed “life.”

“He’s a good man,” Trump said of West at the time. “We’ve been friends for a long time.”

Before Trump’s election West himself had speculated about a presidential run in 2020.

Alex Jones Blasted for Telling Unhappy African-Americans to ‘Go to Africa’ (Video)

Alex Jones revived a centuries-old racial taunt Wednesday, telling African-Americans that if they aren’t happy in the United States, they should go to Africa.

“Again, if America is so bad — the whole thing is — why don’t you go to Africa,” said Jones. “I’ve heard from so many black folks that were liberals until they went to Africa and they saw how bad it was in some areas and they went ‘Wow, man I’m glad I’m here.”

Criticism came swiftly from people who reminded Jones of the existence of slavery.

“Nope, Alex Jones. My ancestors were involuntarily brought to America in the 18th century,” one woman tweeted. “So, I am staying in America to give you something to talk about on your show.”

Jones, who is currently being sued for fueling false claims that the Sandy Hook shooting was faked, has previously accused Bill Gates of being a eugenicist, and speculated about child slave colonies on Mars. But his latest statement was still striking enough to catch the attention of Bobby Lewis, a researcher for the liberal group Media Matters. Lewis was the first to flag the remark on Twitter.

Jones did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheWrap.

Therein lies the truth of what these people like Alex Jones believe: it doesn’t matter how many generations deep you are as an American; you could have more generations than they do but to be not-white is to be of some other place. Your complaints are invalid as a result. https://t.co/sPbXZZjkK8

Alex Jones Sued by Sandy Hook Parents in Defamation Suits

No fake news here — Alex Jones has been hit with two lawsuits by parents of children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting who say Jones’ InfoWars defamed them.

InfoWars has fueled a conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook shooting was a “false flag” to build up opposition to guns. Sandy Hook shooter Adam Lanza killed 20 children and six adults in the December 2012 attack.

One lawsuit, filed by Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, alleges that De La Rosa was falsely accused of taking part in a bogus interview in a 2017 InfoWars report.

“This case arises out of accusations made by InfoWars in 2017, including the false claim that Plaintiff Veronique De La Rose was an actor in a faked interview with CNN’s Anderon Cooper used to cover up the ‘truth’ about Sandy Hook, as well as other statements meant to support the underlying accusation that the Sandy Hook parents are liars and frauds,” the suit reads. “This conspiracy theory, which has been pushed by InfoWars and Mr. Jones since the day of the shooting, alleges that the Sandy Hook massacre did not happen, or that it was staged by the government and concealed using actors, and that the parents of the victims are participants in a horrifying cover-up.”

Saying that Jones’ assertion that De La Rosa “participated in a faked blue-screen interview from a remote location is manifestly false,” the suit adds that by “making renewed accusations about the Plaintiffs in 2017, InfoWars breathed new life into this conspiracy and caused intense emotional anguish and despair.”

A second suit, filed by Sandy Hook father Neil Heslin, takes issue with “accusations by InfoWars in the summer of 2017 that Plaintiff was lying about whether he actually held his son’s body and observed a bullet hole in his head. This heartless and vile act of defamation re-ignited the Sandy Hook ‘false flag’ conspiracy and tore open the emotional wounds that Plaintiff has tried so desperately to heal.”

Both suits allege defamation and seek more than $1 million in damages.

InfoWars did not immediately respond to a request for comment from TheWrap.

Outspoken Filmmaker Uwe Boll Challenges ‘Chicken, Coward’ Alex Jones to Boxing Match

Boll publicly challenged the InfoWars founder and professional conspiracy theorist to a “boxing match, if he can accept my challenge.”

Despite retiring from filmmaking in 2016, “BloodRayne” director Uwe Boll has managed to keep quite busy. First, he revealed that he briefly stayed in Jennifer Lawrence’s childhood home, where he read her diaries in her one-time bedroom. Just before this year’s Oscars, he accused “Phantom Thread” filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson of ripping off the poster for his “BloodRayne” after Boll publicly criticized Anderson’s Best Picture nominee. Not yet satiated with legal brouhaha, Boll recently threatened to sue Warner Bros. for “using his brand” and “helping the military industrial complex” by making the upcoming Dwayne Johnson-starring “Rampage,” an adaptation of the video game of the same name.

And it doesn’t end there. Boll has now taken to Twitter to publicly challenge InfoWars founder and professional conspiracy theorist Alex Jones to a “boxing match, if he can accept my challenge.”

Boll’s affection for boxing willing participants in public venues is one of his most cherished pastimes. As the AV Club notes, “while nothing is likely to top the 2006 Raging Boll event in which Boll graciously invited critics of his oeuvre to defend their opinions through the time-tested academic tradition of a boxing tournament sponsored by an online casino, his latest attempt to assert dominance over a world fast forgetting his name has a truly worthwhile target—the one opponent who’s guaranteed to make the director of this scene look downright heroic in comparison.”

Boll appears to have been mostly inspired by Jones’ shilling of a “Super Male Vitality” supplement, prompting the former filmmaker to open his challenge with “Male Vitality my ass,” before launching into his official ask of Jones to step up for a boxing match.

Boll has continued to tweet about Jones and his challenge, and many of his comments center on “chicken…pure coward” Jones who has yet to respond to Boll’s ask on Twitter or otherwise.

As of this writing, Jones has not dignified the challenge with any sort of public statement or answer. Boll noted in a fresh tweet, “I think it is obvious now to the public Alex Jones talks game but when confronted, it is all bullshit. This challenge is a great example.” Later, Boll tweeted that he thinks Jones is likely “rolled up in his bedroom sweating and crying like a baby,” and thus not responding to his tweets.

IndieWire has reached out to Boll and Jones’ representatives for comment.
