  • FBI Informant Panic Is Ruining Friendships All Over the Far Right

    02/14/2021 7:52:23 PM PST · by RandFan · 33 replies
    As federal authorities crack down on the far right after the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, the movement’s leaders have found new sources of suspicion: each other. In the Trumpist “America First” movement and the far-right paramilitary group the Proud Boys, alliances are fracturing as extremists brand each other as potential informants. Now racist live-streamers are accusing their former comrades of attempting to turn over followers to law enforcement, while Proud Boys chapters are splintering from the national organization over similar fears. Until the FBI started closing in, white nationalists Nick Fuentes and Patrick Casey were the two most prominent figures...
  • NYT Newsroom Sees More Infighting As Staffers Express Outrage Over Decision Not To Fire Reporter(HUH?)

    02/05/2021 10:01:58 AM PST · by rktman · 13 replies ^ | 2/4/2021 | Shelby Talcott
    The New York Times has promised to give staffers “results” after many signed a letter expressing anger over the decision not to fire science and health reporter Donald McNeil, The Washington Post reported. McNeil, the Times’s top COVID-19 reporter, came under scrutiny after allegations that he “repeatedly made racist and sexist remarks throughout” a school trip that he was chosen to guide, according to a past report from the Daily Beast. NYT’s executive editor Dean Baquet later explained that he was first “outraged and expected to fire” McNeil, but changed his mind after an investigation. “I authorized an investigation and...

    Twelve minutes before noon on Wednesday, President Joe Biden was sworn into office as the nation’s 46th president. Seven hours later, the United States reported more than 4,409 new deaths from the novel coronavirus, according to data collected by the COVID-19 Tracking Project.

    President Donald Trump reportedly informed attorney Sidney Powell this week that she will not be given a “special counsel” position to probe her unproven claims on election fraud, and she now claims that she has been cut off from speaking to the president. Trump dropped the idea of “giving her such a formal portfolio for pursuing her conspiracy theories around voter irregularities and fraud,” The Daily Beast reported. “Asked whether Trump told Powell that she wouldn’t be ‘special counsel,’ Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani — who leads the president’s post-election legal team — told The Daily Beast on Tuesday: ‘Yes,’ adding,...

    Rick Wilson, the Daily Beast's editor-at-large, says he and presumably others "won't forget" and "won't forgive" what Trump supporters did to America. In his rant, Wilson also appeared to compare the United States to a cheap hooker that President Donald Trump used and abused. What are the details?In a Sunday night editorial tagged "overdue penalties," Wilson said that it's simply "not enough to merely enjoy their agony and humiliation" as former Vice President Joe Biden is set to be inaugurated in January 2021. "It's not enough to hope they'll be shamed and correct their behavior," Wilson added in his short...

    We have been discussing the rising threats against Trump supporters, lawyers, and officials in recent weeks from Democratic members are calling for blacklists to the Lincoln Project leading a a national effort to harass and abuse any lawyers representing the Republican party or President Trump. Others are calling for banning those “complicit” from college campuses while still others are demanding a “Truth and Reconciliation Commission” to “hold Trump and his enablers accountable for the crimes they have committed.” Now, Daily Beast editor-at-large Rick Wilson has added his own call for “humiliation,” “incarceration” and even ritualistic suicides for Trump supporters in...
  • Trump Now Baselessly Suggests FBI Rigged Election Against Him in First Post-Election Interview

    11/29/2020 2:34:28 PM PST · by tarpit · 71 replies
    President Donald Trump engaged in what could best be described as a lengthy airing of grievances on Sunday morning, venting to sycophantic Fox News host Maria Bartiromo during his first post-election television interview while baselessly suggesting his own FBI and Department of Justice were “involved” with a “rigged” election against him. Since decisively losing the election to President-elect Joe Biden earlier this month, the president has been holed up inside the White House tweeting unhinged conspiracies about widespread voter fraud while his “elite strike force” legal team has had its attempts to overthrow the election repeatedly laughed out of court.

    Internal data from the Biden campaign reveals something that they would rather not admit. However, it’s something that conservatives could easily discern given the current political climate and the conduct of the corporate press. The campaign’s data revealed that if establishment media outlets didn’t ignore the Hunter Biden laptop story, it could have severely damaged the former vice president’s chances of winning. The Daily Beast, which is not exactly a right-leaning news outlet, admitted this in a recently-published piece. From The Daily Beast: “But this was entirely different in its scope. According to their data, there was more social chatter...

    Phony fears about Democrats are already leading to a pre-election spike in gun sales. And now the Supreme Court is poised to strike down the insufficient gun laws we already have. Barrett is an originalist who believes the Constitution must be interpreted exactly as the Founders intended. “Her views and how she thinks about the Second Amendment are not grounded in modern day reality,” Parsons told the Daily Beast. “She doesn’t give any attention to the cause of modern-day gun violence. Looking at the intent of the framers when there were no assault weapons is very inappropriate in an age...

The footage will be globally available in 48 hours.We’ll all know the truth, or at least have strong opinions about it, by Friday afternoon. But in a sane world, he wouldn’t have gone boasting to New York tabloids in July that he had totally pwn3d Sacha Baron Cohen by foiling a prank, knowing that Cohen had footage of him lying on a bed with his hands down his pants.So, yeah, Rudy’s perfectly capable of telling lies which he has every reason to...

    The attacks on Fox News host Tucker Carlson as a racist, white nationalist, xenophobic, immigrant-hating troll have become coin of the realm in the establishment media. Last week, the Daily Beast hit an all-time low when one of its reporters accused Carlson of blaming George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Jacob Blake for their own deaths and injuries from police. The almost libelous article attributes claims that Carlson actually never made on his show. The Daily Beast reporter simply offers his own dubious interpretations of Carlson’s interpretation of news and facts as he receives them. Carlson has been lambasted for criticizing...

    Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy on Monday morning issued an apology for his show having run with a since-retracted story falsely accusing Nashville’s Democratic mayor of engaging in a coronavirus cover-up, admitting that the mayor did not conceal information from the public as alleged. Last week, a supposed bombshell by a local Fox affiliate in Nashville set the conservative media ecosystem on fire. According to the report by Fox 17—a Sinclair-owned station—the mayor’s office allegedly covered up numbers that showed relatively low spread of COVID-19 in bars and restaurants. The clear implication of the story was that the city...

    The Daily Beast is being criticized over a misleading report about the deaths that have occurred among educators amid the reopening of schools during the coronavirus outbreak. Fourth Watch media analyst Steve Krakauer highlighted an article published last week that read the "heartbreaking" headline, "At Least 4 Teachers Have Died of COVID-19 Since Start of School Year." "At least four teachers have died of coronavirus-related causes since the beginning of the school year—an ominous sign of what’s to come as students return to classrooms across the country," the report grimly began before citing the deaths of teachers from Pennsylvania, Mississippi,...

The FBI’s Newark field office announced Roy Den Hollander’s link to the California slaying of Marc Angelucci in tweet Wednesday afternoon. “As the FBI continues the investigation into the attack at the home of US District Court Judge Esther Salas, we are now engaged with the San Bernardino CA Sheriff’s Office and have evidence linking the murder of Marc Angelucci to FBI Newark subject Roy Den Hollander,” the office...

    President Donald Trump's niece Mary L. Trump is publishing a book that will reveal herself to be the primary source of a New York Times investigation into the president's finances, The Daily Beast reported. Mary Trump will say she supplied The Times with confidential family tax documents, The Daily Beast said. The Times investigation later revealed that the president wasn't a self-made man but had his father bolster his failing businesses in the 1990s with hundreds of millions of dollars. Mary Trump is the daughter of Fred Trump Jr., the president's older brother who died in 1981 at the age...

    He blamed issues at The North Star on over-ambition, but seven former employees of the site King launched with great fanfare painted a darker picture. When Shaun King and progressive journalist Benjamin Dixon launched an ambitious multimedia reboot of Frederick Douglass’ abolitionist newspaper, The North Star, last February, it was celebrated across social media by prominent voices including Susan Sarandon, Michael Eric Dyson and Megan Mullally. A month later, the company boasted on Twitter that it already had “multiple angel investors” and more than 30,000 subscribers contributing $5 per month for students and $10 a month and up for the...

    Journalists missed a reference to a Biden gaffe Monday after the Trump campaign launched a new website titled “Truth Over Facts.” President Donald Trump’s campaign launched what appears to be a joke website they described as “an investigative website aimed at uncovering the truth behind [former Vice President] Joe Biden’s never-ending, seemingly incomprehensible statements during his third, plodding campaign for president.” The “Truth Over Facts” title is, in fact, a reference to one of Biden’s public gaffes, where he made the comment during a 2019 campaign speech in Iowa. This seemed to go over many journalists’ heads as they attacked...
