Tidal effects increased due to Jupiter's proximity to the moon?

So I was watching the show about what would happen if the moon disappeared, and how the sun's tidal tug would cause a tsunami while it was gathering the high tide from the missing moon.

Jupiter is pretty far away at 4.2 AU to 6.2 AU and pretty small compared to the sun, but given it's current closer than normal proximity to the moon, wouldn't that effect high tides? If so, does anyone know how much?

If it does, would that also increase the tug on our tectonic plates?

Just curious if there was any data on this.

It's a bright full one, or close to full.
It's pretty much right overhead with Jupiter to it's right side.

Found this 1982 info : [link to www.icr.org]

Then, I may have found a better explanation here : [link to hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu]
According to this source, I'm guessing the increase in force is pretty minuscule.
