NEWTOWN - Extremist Alex Jones' latest court trouble involves more than routine pre-trial wrangling with the Sandy Hook families who are suing him for defamation. The real fight is over the families' claim that the conspiracies Jones promoted as the frontman of Infowars were calculated to drive business to his internet supplements business. The heart of the court case came out in dueling motions filed over the last two weeks by the families, who accuse Jones of deliberately withholding information about his business strategy to hide his motives, and by Jones, who accuses the families of having no proof and of making him fish at his own expense for documents that don't exist. "The (families) proceed at their own peril by insisting that Jones defendants engage in sophisticated editorial content-making, targeting stories to products and seeking to stimulate sales by means of peddling known falsehoods likely to go viral," wrote Jones' attorney Norman Pattis. "Simply put, there is no evidence to support the claim that the Jones defendants knowingly market falsehoods for financial gain." The judge overseeing the case has sided with the family, ordering Jones under threat of punishment to turn over to the families the missing business records in question. "[T]he court will consider appropriate sanctions for (Jones') failure to fully comply should (he) not produce the data in one week," state Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis ruled Monday. If it seems as though Jones has been in trouble with this judge before, he has. In March, Bellis said she was fed up with Jones' delays in turning over documents to the families, and threatened to throw out his motion to dismiss their case. In...

France's crisis management force knows how to do its job, thank you very much. As the Notre Dame Cathedral erupted in flames on Monday, all hands were very clearly on deck brainstorming how to put it out. Then President Trump chimed in with some unsolicited advice: "Perhaps flying water tankers," he tweeted. It took a few hours, but France's Securite Civile, which handles civil defense and crisis management, soon made it clear it had read and rejected Trump's tip. "All means are being used" to fight the flames, the group wrote in a rare English-language tweet, "except for water-bombing aircrafts which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral." Hundreds of firemen of the Paris Fire Brigade are doing everything they can to bring the terrible #NotreDame fire under control. All means are being used, except for water-bombing aircrafts which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral. -- Securite Civile Fr (@SecCivileFrance) April 15, 2019 The Securite Civile had also tweeted throughout the day, in French, that "the weight of the water and the intensity of the drop at low altitude could indeed weaken the structure of Notre Dame and cause collateral damage to the surrounding buildings." Interior Department officials have also said they "may not" be able to save any of the cathedral, and a spokesperson said "nothing will remain from the frame" of the building. Kathryn Krawczyk
