  • EXCLUSIVE: 'Surge' of coronavirus lies from adversaries seeking to blame U.S. floods web

    The Washington Times ^ | Updated: 9:07 p.m. on Sunday, March 15, 2020 | Guy Taylor
    China, Russia and Iran are flooding the global information space with false claims about the new coronavirus, according to U.S. officials, who say one of the biggest lies — that the virus that causes COVID-19 is a U.S. bioweapon and was brought to China by U.S. Army personnel — is just the latest in a “surge of propaganda” aimed at undermining America’s image on the world stage. Beijing, Moscow and Tehran are using a vast web of social media accounts, fake news outlets and state-controlled global satellite media to promote false claims by academics and, at times, government officials to...
  • AFP FactCheck: Chinese ‘spies’ did not steal deadly coronavirus from Canada

    AFP FACT CHECK ^ | 01/31/2020 | AFP Canada, Louis Baudoin-Laarman
    Websites and social media users claim that the new coronavirus discovered in the city of Wuhan may have been created in Canada and stolen by Chinese spies. This is false; Canadian health and federal police officials say it has no factual basis. “Corona virus developed in Canada and stolen by China?” reads the headline of this article from January 22, 2020. It appears to be the first of a series of such claims about the novel coronavirus, which caused an outbreak in the central Chinese city of Wuhan before spreading elsewhere in the country and around the world. Screenshot of...

    Russia's state TV Channel One has broadcast conspiracy theories blaming U.S. President Donald Trump or "international corporations" for the coronavirus. The report was broadcast on the main evening news show watched by millions on February 5.

    Frontpage Mag ^ | Nov 29, 2019 | Oleg Atbashian
    In the last few days, media talking heads have been saying the word "CrowdStrike" a lot, defining it as a wild conspiracy theory originating in Moscow. They were joined by Chris Wallace at Fox News, who informed us that president Trump and his ill-informed fans believe in a crazy idea that the DNC wasn't hacked by the Russians but by some Ukrainian group named CrowdStrike that stole the DNC server and brought it to Ukraine , and that it was Ukraine that meddled in our 2016 election and not Russia. A crazy idea indeed. Except that neither Trump nor his...

    Well she’s impressive but she’s not that impressive. Conspiracy theorists are at it again over a 120-year-old photo depicting a girl who bears an uncanny resemblance to teen environmental activist Greta Thunberg. The photo, unearthed from archives at the University of Washington, shows three children working at a gold mine in Canada, including a girl wearing Thunberg’s signature braid and stoic expression. Historians believe it was taken around 1898. Thunberg, 16, took the world by storm when she arrived to the UN Climate Action Summit from her native Sweden this year via sailboat — having sworn off airplanes because of...
  • Why Everything You Think You Know About Christian Zionism Is Wrong

    Jewish Daily Forward ^ | August 26, 2019 | Raphael Magarik
    Evangelical Christianity remains one of the few topics about which it remains permissible, and possibly even praiseworthy, for a Jewish liberal to know nothing. Take evangelical attitudes toward Israel. Almost every time the subject comes up, someone will explain that Christian Zionism conceals, under a cloak of philo-Semitism, a nefarious agenda. Christian Zionists support Israel, supposedly, to hasten the end-times, when, as Bible professor Candida Moss writes, “Jews must convert or die.” Political scientist Elizabeth Oldmixon explains that evangelicals are part of “movement in Christianity that’s as old as Christianity itself,” and want to hasten “a millennium in the future,”...

    [snip] Willie Geist led off, calling it "unfathomable" that the two guards responsible for Epstein had fallen asleep. Mike Barnicle picked up the thread, saying it was "inexplicable" that the jail warden had removed Epstein's cellmate. That teed up the BBC's Katty Kay to point the conspiracy finger: "It's one thing if people are really tired and they do their job shoddily. Another if it's made at a senior level the decision that you leave this prisoner alone and that the cellmate was moved out, I understand it, just the night before. That’s what’s leading people to think: this is...
  • Exclusive: FBI document warns conspiracy theories are a new domestic terrorism threat

    The FBI for the first time has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat, according to a previously unpublicized document obtained by Yahoo News. (Read the document below.) The FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019, describes “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists,” as a growing threat, and notes that it is the first such report to do so. It lists a number of arrests, including some that haven’t been publicized, related to violent incidents motivated by fringe beliefs. The document specifically mentions QAnon, a shadowy network that believes in a deep state conspiracy...

    This could be the biggest display of chutzpah since the guy convicted of offing his parents pleaded for mercy on the basis of being an orphan. MSNBC's Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough had the gall Monday morning to condemn President Trump over an Epstein conspiracy theory, despite having floated a bizarre one himself. Shortly after the news of Epstein's death became public on Saturday morning, Scarborough took to Twitter: "A guy who had information that would have destroyed rich and powerful men’s lives ends up dead in his jail cell. How predictably ... Russian. He reportedly tried to kill himself...

    Breitbart ^ | 3/27/2014 | Matthew Boyle
    The number two Republican in the Senate is lambasting a media “shield law” proposed by New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer, potentially imperiling its shot at passage. “This is a bad idea and one whose time has not come,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), the Senate minority whip, told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview. “Believe me, we will not be rolled over.” Schumer’s “Free Flow of Information Act” passed the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, and he recently said he already has the 60 votes needed to pass the bill on the floor. “We’ll get a few more Republicans, not...

    Q is the result of the sacrifices and commitment of countless patriots to win back our captured country from the Deep State and achieve the transformation President Trump promised in this campaign video. President Trump has said the awakening of the public is key to this transformation. Q describes this awakening as follows: "The Great Awakening ('Freedom of Thought’), was designed and created not only as a backchannel to the public (away from the longstanding ‘mind’ control of the corrupt & heavily biased media) to endure future events through transparency and regeneration of individual thought (breaking the chains of...

    Fox News ^ | June 28, 2019 | Joseph A. Wulfsohn
    Outspoken Trump critic Jeff Flake offered a rare defense of President Trump in response to former President Jimmy Carter's remarks suggesting the current president isn't a legitimate one. Speaking at a Democratic forum on Friday, Carter weighed in on Russia's interference in the 2016 election and expressed his belief that it played a much bigger role in the election of Trump than Special Counsel Robert Mueller concluded. "I think a full investigation would show that Trump didn’t actually win the election in 2016," the 94-year-old former president said. "He lost the election, and he was put into office because the...

    It might be safe to say that NBC political director Chuck Todd was invested in or, at least, very eager to have Democrats start actively chasing down President Trump via impeachment. After seemly trying to goad Congressional Democrats into starting an impeachment case earlier on Sunday, Todd grilled Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) during Meet the Press on why he and party leadership had not done more to get rid of Trump. Before getting to the House Judiciary Committee Chairman, Todd gave viewers a crash course in what the Special Counsel investigation found. And in true Chuck Todd-fashion, he put his...

    More details about Rosie O'Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg's feud on "The View" have been unveiled. Ramin Setoodeh, author of "Ladies Who Punch: The Explosive Inside Story of 'The View'" described a power clash between the two panelists as the root of their beef. “I don’t think she liked to be challenged,” Setoodeh told Jenny McCarthy of Goldberg. “I think she had the most problems with Rosie O’Donnell because Rosie wanted to challenge her and wanted to change the show. Rosie felt like Whoopi was kind of checked out.”

    In another iteration of the liberal media’s suggestion that support for the border wall was driven primarily by racism, longtime NBC newsman Tom Brokaw appeared on Sunday’s Meet the Press and claimed Republicans have told him they’re not enthusiastic about the idea of having “brown grandbabies”. During the End Game portion of the program, Brokaw wanted to talk about the stuff “we don't want to talk about”. According to him, it was the Republican Party’s discontent for Hispanics. “The fact is, on the Republican side, a lot of people see the rise of an extraordinarily important new constituency in American...

    According to recent court filings, President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen told federal prosecutors that he was directed by the then-candidate to pay hush money to two women to help sway the outcome of the 2016 election. Even though Cohen admitted he had previously lied under oath to Congress, ABC and NBC spent part of their Sunday morning news programs suggesting it was all over for the Trump administration. “We now have a president of the United States who has essentially been implicated in a felony by his own Justice Department,” boasted ABC anchor Dan Harris to chief global...

    CNN media reporter and TV host Brian Stelter’s hatred for President Trump and Fox News was on full display during Sunday’s “Reliable Sources”. He spent most of the show decrying the President and Fox News while relegating the disturbing and horrific revelations in the sexual misconduct allegations against former CBS executive Les Moonves to a segment during the latter half of the program. In the first segment of the show, Stelter was speaking with CNN political analyst and former Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein about the similarities between the scandals for former President Richard Nixon and President Donald Trump. “After you...

    One wonders what Arizona Democrat Kyrsten Sinema and candidate for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Jeff Flake thinks of the news that the five members of the Taliban, dubbed their “Dream Team”, that President Barack Hussein Obama traded for the traitor and deserter Bowe Bergdahl, have officially returned to the Taliban, their mission once again to kill Americans and, presumably, Arizonans. Let me take a wild guess and suggest that it is doubtful Sinema will express condemnation of and regret for Obama’s move to honor to excuse a traitor and reward an enemy of the United States, an...
