    Barack Obama was born in the U.S. It was his own book publisher that started the false rumor that he was born in Kenya. NPR later repeated the false claim. Barack Obama was born in the U.S.According to this 2012 article from ABC News, in 1991 Obama’s own book publisher printed a paper pamphlet which said that Obama was “born in Kenya.” An employee of the publisher said that it was a “fact checking error” of hers that caused this to happen, and that the false information did not come from Obama.

    President Donald Trumps repeated attacks on the special counsel investigating Russias interference in the 2016 election may be taking hold not only among Republicans but Democrats and independents as well, according to a poll released Wednesday. The Politico/Morning Consult poll found Special Counsel Robert Muellers favorability among Democrats and independents took a slight dive over the last 11 months. Twenty-four percent of Democrats registered an unfavorable score for Mueller, while 33 percent of independents also viewed Mueller in a negative light. (snip) Overall, a record 53 percent of the polls respondents shared an unfavorable reaction to Mueller, a 26-point jump...
  • Bobby Kennedys son thinks he was killed by a second shooter. Is there anything to it?

    Conspiracies surrounding President John F. Kennedys death may be most widely circulated. However, one theory questioning our understanding of Robert F. Kennedys murder in 1968 has arguably gained more recent traction, including from those closest to the assassination and even one immediate member of Kennedys family. According to the Post, Kennedys second oldest son now believes, after months of research, that his father was killed by a second gunman. What Bobby Kennedy Jr. has done, hes launched a whole new generation of conspiracy nuts who are going to believe that Sirhan didnt do it and that somebody else did, he...

Among those condemning Ryan for the tweet is first lady Melania Trumps spokeswoman.

    Stormy Danielss attorney Michael Avenatti said Tuesday that President Trumps personal lawyer Michael Cohen received $500,000 in the months after the 2016 election from a company run by a Russian oligarch with ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Avenatti said that the funding may have been used to reimburse the $130,000 payment Cohen made to Daniels to stay quiet about her alleged affair with Trump. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani revealed last week that Trump had reimbursed Cohen $130,000, which was given to Daniels just weeks before the 2016 election. Cohen had earlier claimed that the non-disclosure payment came...

    Watching Jack Bryans explosive documentary Active Measures, about Russias espionage program and the effect it had on the 2016 U.S. presidential election, could be likened to watching a 21st century version of Watergate. [snip] a bevy of interviews with key Washington figures including former CIA director James Woolsey, former United States Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, former F.B.I. special agent Clint Watts, Hillary Clinton and John McCain. Via these interviews Active Measures constructs a powerful argument as to how Soviet modern warfare tactics active measures shifted the 2016 U.S. presidential elections and weakened Western democracy.

    The Democratic Party on Friday filed a multimillion-dollar federal lawsuit against Trump campaign officials, the Russian government and WikiLeaks alleging a widespread conspiracy to tilt the 2016 election in Donald Trump's favor. Calling it an all-out assault on our democracy, the Democratic National Committee filed the civil suit in federal district court in Manhattan. The suit amounts to another legal broadside related to the 2016 race, on top of the special counsel's ongoing Russia probe and the FBI raid on Trump's personal attorney last week. "The conspiracy constituted an act of previously unimaginable treachery: the campaign of the presidential nominee...

    Curing cancer not a realistic goal, doctors focus on managing instead of curing disease Over the last five years, cancer research has seen the greatest advances, including a new approach to treating the complex disease as a chronic disease, instead of trying to cure it. We have seen the greatest advances in cancer medicine in the last five years with drugs targeting the immune system moving into the clinic and showing remarkable response rates with quite a few different malignancies, Lisa Coussens, Ph.D., Chair of the Department of Cell, Developmental & Cancer Biology, said to Fox News at the American...

  • The Conspiracy Theory That Says Trump Is a Genius

    Last week Roseanne Barr who, with the hit reboot of her show, has become one of the most prominent Donald Trump supporters in the country tweeted that the president has freed hundreds of children a month from sexual bondage. He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere, she wrote. (The tweet has since been deleted.) Barrs tweet, puzzling to the casual observer, was a reference to QAnon, an expansive, complicated pro-Trump conspiracy theory. The theory is fascinating as an artifact of our current political derangement, but more than that, its profoundly revealing about the lengths to...

    Guccifer 2.0, the lone hacker who took credit for providing WikiLeaks with stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee, was in fact an officer of Russias military intelligence directorate (GRU), The Daily Beast has learned. Its an attribution that resulted from a fleeting but critical slip-up in GRU tradecraft. That forensic determination has substantial implications for the criminal probe into potential collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia. The Daily Beast has learned that the special counsel in that investigation, Robert Mueller, has taken over the probe into Guccifer and brought the FBI agents who worked to track the persona...

    The official narrative youve been fed by the FBI and Las Vegas officials about the massacre at Mandalay Bay that claimed 58 lives is purely fiction, a polished story contrived to cover up the disturbing facts surrounding the worst mass shooting ever in the United States, according the FBI insiders and high-ranking intelligence officials. And now, after months of corporate-infused spin by MGM Resorts and outright lies from officials in the FBI and the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, federal agents and intelligence officials are spilling the beans about what really happened on and before the Oct. 1 massacre.

    We wrote here about Anastasia Vashukevich, an Instagram model/sex coach who ran afoul of the authorities in Bangkok. Vashukevich was arrested for giving sex lessons to Russian tourists without a permit and was interviewed by the Associated Press while on board a police van taking her to a jail. Seriously. Like the rest of us, Vashukevich would rather be on the outside of a Bangkok jail looking in, than on the inside looking out. She was enterprising enough to claim that she has top-secret information about President Trump and the Russians that she is willing to reveal if someone will...

She faces criminal charges and deportation to Belarus after coming under suspicion of working in Thailand without a visa at a sex-training seminar in the city of Pattaya.

    For the last week or so, the entire nation has been talking about gun control or at least the media has been talking about it. The sudden tsunami of gun control stories, articles, op-eds, and segments is the result of the terrible mass shooting that took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in beautiful Parkland, Florida. Sadly, the focus on gun control has caused the media (and the people who get their news from the media) to miss the far-larger scandal revolving around Douglas High School. First, let me be clear; Im not talking about the scandal of...
