Alex Jones is probably best known as the host of Infowars, a conspiracy theory show. Jones has made a lot of money and, with the rise of the MAGA-disenfranchised Trump block of America, has become a well-connected person in American politics. His blunt disregard for facts or evidence in the service of every bad-faith and lazily written conspiracy theory has brought him a lot of listeners and watchers, but it’s also the reason he is losing defamation lawsuit after defamation lawsuit in U.S. courts.
The single premise that Jones and others like him have been able to operate under is the idea that secret forces in and around our government are trying to control you. You want there to be regulations on guns? That’s how they control you. Did your unpopular conman ex-president lose an election? Of course not. They stole it. Who are “they?” They’re the powerful forces spying on you and pulling the levers of power.
Would it surprise you to find out that a new report out of Rolling Stone describes Alex Jones as the biggest purveyor of secret surveillance in his own life and those intimately involved with him? It wouldn’t? Of course it wouldn’t. But it is worth a read.

The past few years have seen Jones trying his hardest to stretch out his reckoning over the slander and defamation he hurled for years against the families who lost young children in 2012 at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. One of the bigger revelations for the Jones camp came out about a month ago when his own legal team seems to have mistakenly let the evidence cat out of the bag by sending two years worth of Jones’ digital communications to attorneys representing some of the Sandy Hook families suing him for defamation.
Those texts have now begun to leak out here and there, leading to stories of uneasiness for some of his intimate friends, like Fox News’ misinformation abuse poet, Tucker Carlson. Some of these revelations seem to have surprised even Jones’ own wife, Erika Wulff Jones. When reports came out that text exchanges between Jones and Nixon-fetishist Roger Stone included a nude image of the Infowars host’s wife, she told Business Insider that she was “unaware” her husband had been sending the images to some random rich asshat.
Rolling Stone has spoken to “multiple sources” who have seen some more of Alex Jones’ texts, and say they show the purveyor of paranoid entertainment using a “network of informers and spies to covertly surveil his ex-wife,” Kelly Jones. Kelly and Alex Jones have been involved in a protracted and bitter custody battle over the past few years. She told Rolling Stone, “Alex is obsessed with me, has had me followed for years, has done everything to infringe on my liberties and personal freedom to impose himself into my life.” Kelly Jones also says she will potentially look into whether or not these revelations are “legal.”
Rolling Stone also reports that Jones’ current wife, Erika Wulff Jones, is not immune from Alex Jones’ secret surveillance.
“The texts reveal Alex Jones had enlisted Tim Enlow, a former Blackwater mercenary on his security detail, to track his wife. In the texts, Alex Jones would repeatedly check in for updates on Wulff Jones’ location. Enlow’s responses included screenshots of a GPS phone app that he said was tracking her car, as well as Enlow’s own descriptions of her physical location, according to the source.
The Jan. 6 probe has at least two years of Alex Jones’ text communications now. We will see what that yields. Alex Jones, ladies and gentlemen.
