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...

There's trouble in swing country for President Trump. Poll results released on Wednesday by Monmouth University show that voters in swing districts -- where the margin between Trump and his 2016 presidential election opponent Hillary Clinton was less than 10 percentage points -- actually disapprove of Trump's performance in the Oval Office at higher rates than voters in districts who supported Clinton by more than 10 percentage points. Monmouth poll shows Trump's approval rating is higher in deep blue districts than swing districts.Support in swing districts:Approve: 31%Disapprove: 51%Clinton +10 districts:Approve: 33%Disapprove: 62% -- Ryan James Girdusky (@RyanGirdusky) April 17, 2019 The results appear to back up the Trump re-election campaign team's plan to focus heavily in areas like Michigan and Wisconsin, which were sites of some of the smallest gaps in the 2016 contest. Trump eked out surprising victories in both states. However, the Monmouth poll doesn't provide polling data from individual districts. That 31 percent approval rating is the aggregate of every district where the race was decided by less than 10 percentage points, some of which Clinton won. The poll also does not stipulate whether the voters who disapprove of Trump also refuse to vote for him in 2020 -- the two are not necessarily mutually exclusive. Still, the results illustrate Trump's potential vulnerability. The poll was conducted via telephone April 11-15, interviewing 801 U.S. adults. The total margin of error is 3.5 percentage points, though the margin of error in swing counties is 7.8 percentage points. See more results at Monmouth. Tim O'Donnell
