In a court hearing he claimed that he had had 150 sexual partners by the time he was 16 and that he dated many older women that went to college.
All the abortions

Other Unknown Children
The exact number of children Alex is the father of is probably unbeknownst to even himself. He has stated that he became a father when he was 24, which does not add up with the age of the children he has with his ex-wife.
Alex Jones is a highly religious person. He is a Christian that find great strength in the lord Jesus Christ. He does not put much faith in the mainstream priests and churches because he thinks they are mouth pieces for the government agenda and that they are run by the devil himself. For he is most certainly not a devil worshiper. When it comes to women Alex Jones seems to have some special preference for Jewish women even though he claims he is a Christian himself, but in reality it makes himself pseudo-Jewish.
The fact that he has always tried to stay on the path that God has lead him down is the reason that Alex has been able to survive all these years without the government assassinating him or putting him in jail on some fabricated charges.
It is too easy and rudimentary to label Alex Jones a far-right nutjob. Instead, his political ideologies are very complex and nuanced.
Alex is very much against everything what Mr. and Mrs. Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama II stands for. But he is not just against democrats. He also has a disliking for George W. Bush. But Alex Jones really embraced Donald Trump.
Alex is against the idea of the left-right paradigm and thinks the entire political system is flawed and rotten. And when Donald Trump stepped up without being a professional politician Alex could support a republican candidate.
He would not be offended by being described as a libertarian and paleo-conservative. But he does not really buy into modern political labels. He is a real conservative and a real liberal, but the definitions have changed over time. And today those labels do not mean the same as they did 100 years ago. Alex is more a truth seeker and a freedom lover and those concepts are not easily defined within the modern political frameworks.
It is easier to look at the issues he is passionate about to get a sense of his true political views. Such as being against the USA losing is sovereignty and becoming a surveillance police state. And the Federal Reserve printing up dollars to fund wars against made up enemies at home and abroad. And such issues as the big government wanting to forcibly vaccinating people in cahoots with big pharma. Plus all the other globalist schemes that Alex has voiced his concerns about.
Building His Media Empire Brick by Brick
From a very young age Alex was interested in history. He quickly realized that things were not always right. From a young age he never bought into the all the false paradigms in the world.
In 1995-1996, Alex was on access TV in east Austin. He had to go on late at night when there were available slots. He was running it all by himself in a little control room. In 1996, he began hosting his own show called "The Final Edition" on the radio station KJFK-FM in Austin. In 1997, he put out a film called "America Destroyed by Design" that he had to bootstrap using a huge and outdated VHS camera that he was able to borrow. At the time he had another full time job, and he was able to use the editing equipment at the TV studio at 2 am. And having to be at the other job at 7 in the morning. His other jobs at the time was at a golf course and selling memberships at a gym. He was working a total of 40 hours a week at those jobs so it took about a year to complete the documentary film in his spear time. The documentary film was a success, and he was able to make half a million dollars on it. The money he made from the film after tax he reinvested in his media company that he was starting.
In 1999, he started his website infowars.com. This expanded his reach, and he was no longer limited by what the management of the radio stations thought was appropriate to say on air. In this way Alex Jones was a pioneer into the digital grass roots media.
In 2001, his show was syndicated on approximately 100 stations. After the 9/11 attacks a number of stations dropped him after he made claims that it was an inside job that George W. Bush was orchestrating. However, 9/11 was the start of many wars and draconian policies his number of followers and listeners started to grow in the following years.
In the following decades by churning out the news every day and having some interesting guests on the show he was able to slowly grow his audience and business. He also came up with some innovations such as broadcasting the radio show as a TV-show on the Internet.
He also managed to put out a couple of more documentary movies while doing his radio show. Alex also kept his websites filled with the latest news.
He also expanded his facilities adding more space for new studios and more writers and editing people.
To make money he has relied on advertising, donations, selling subscriptions, selling various products, supplements, books and videos. Most of the profits he claims have been put back into his business in order to grow his company.
