    I receive a lot of strange information from a wide variety of sources. Some of it is intriguing. Some of it is flat-out weird. I try (and frequently fail) to temporarily set aside my own personal prejudices to objectively as possible consider the merits of both the intriguing and weird. Recently, an interesting French website has been asking questions about the crash of American Airlines Flight 77, which reportedly crashed into the Pentagon on Sept. 11. The conventional wisdom has been inculcated into us that there were four terrorist hijacked airplanes that tragic day. But there are refutations for each...
  • Gov. Christie Scolds ABC’s ‘Disrespect’ of McCain With Focus on Trump

    While there were some overtly political statements targeting President Trump at the memorial service for Senator John McCain at the National Cathedral on Saturday, much more of the service was focused on McCain’s life. And since the liberal media is the liberal media, they wanted to opine ad nauseam about how President Trump wasn’t invited. But during Sunday’s This Week, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie scolded his colleagues for putting the focus on Trump instead of McCain. After letting ABC White House correspondent Cecilia Vega and commentator Cokie Roberts prattle on about Trump’s absence from the service, fill-in host...

    QAnon is a conspiracy theory so far reaching and comprehensive, there is virtually no other conspiracy theory it leaves untouched, from the government hiding the UFOs to JFK Jr. surviving his plane crash. The fact that it envelops so many other theories helps explain why QAnon is the most popular shadow-rule fantasy of our time. ... top Democrats are actually human traffickers and pedophiles, along with some Hollywood stars. Many are also supposedly Satanists and blood-drinkers and drug traffickers, too. This cabal of evildoers is supposedly headed by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, who are secretly planning a coup on...

    Jeffrey Gardner Boyd, the man charged with allegedly threatening to kill President Donald Trump and members of his family, repeatedly spoke about the QAnon conspiracy theory prior to his arrest according to a report. Pennsylvania State Police arrested the 55 year old from Tulsa, Oklahoma, on July 31 in Berwick, Columbia County. Officers discovered a loaded handgun and ammunition in his truck, ABC16 reported. He was charged with four counts of making terrorist threats with intent to terrorize another, according to court documents seen by Tulsa World, after he allegedly threatened to kill the President, as well as his daughter...

    The hacking collective Anonymous is pledging to expose the people behind the "QAnon" conspiracy theory. The anarchist hacking group slammed the QAnon conspiracy as potentially dangerous and driven by a "brainless political agenda" in a video posted Sunday to what is widely considered the most reliable Anonymous Twitter account. "We will not sit idly by while you take advantage of the misinformed and poorly educated," the group said in the video, which was posted with the hashtags #OpQ and #OpQAnon. The video depicts various figures with Anonymous masks acting out certain aspects of the QAnon conspiracy against a constant backdrop...

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo is getting desperate. Last night the TV host channeled Alex Jones, perhaps in a bid to increase his humiliating ratings, and floated a nutty theory that Trump may be signaling to followers of QAnon. Trump “has his people at his rally that look for the number 17 as signs of truth,” Conspiracy Cuomo said on his show. “Q is the 17th letter in the alphabet.” That is full blown conspiracy. It’s not even close to “news,” so CNN can stop with the “facts first” nonsense. QAnon is an anonymous online figure (or possibly figures) who maintain claims...

    On Tuesday evening, the dark recesses of the Internet lit up with talk of politics. “Tampa rally, live coverage,” wrote “Dan,” posting a link to President Trump’s Tampa speech in a thread on 8chan, an anonymous image board also known as Infinitechan or Infinitychan, which might be best described as the unglued twin of better-known 4chan, a message board already untethered from reality. The thread invited “requests to Q,” an anonymous user claiming to be a government agent with top security clearance, waging war against the so-called deep state in service to the 45th president. “Q” feeds disciples, or “bakers,”...

    Facebook was reportedly forced to remove as many as 20,000 posts relating to a conspiracy theory surrounding PepsiCo snack foods after the company filed an interim order to block references to the theory in the Delhi High Court in New Delhi, India. Following legal action from Pepsico, Facebook has been forced to delete approximately 20,000 posts relating to a conspiracy theory surrounding the company’s snack “Kurkure,” a corn puff product made for sale in India, Gizmodo reports. The conspiracy theory surrounding Kurkure is that the snack food is in fact made of plastic rather than corn. This conspiracy has spawned...

    The secrets are hidden behind fortified walls in cities across the United States, inside towering, windowless skyscrapers and fortress-like concrete structures that were built to withstand earthquakes and even nuclear attack. Thousands of people pass by the buildings each day and rarely give them a second glance, because their function is not publicly known. They are an integral part of one of the world’s largest telecommunications networks – and they are also linked to a controversial National Security Agency surveillance program. Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. In each of these cities,...

    The liberal media made fools out of themselves Wednesday as nearly every major news outlet rushed to breathlessly report that President Trump had called all illegal immigrants to the United States “animals.” Of course, the glaring problem with their claims was that they were totally false. And despite the fact the media had to issue reams of retractions and corrections, NBC Nightly News and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo kept up the charade Thursday evening. Here is Trump’s comment, complete with the full context: UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about, if they don't reach...

    CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter kicked off Sunday’s Reliable Sources by complaining about a tweet President put out last week citing a Media Research Center study, which found 90 percent of evening network coverage of the President was negative. Of course, CNN took issue with the facts and put together a lineup of media figures to beat up on the President for criticizing them. Among the group was CNN Chief International correspondent Christiane Amanpour, who wasted no time in lashing out at President Trump and denouncing his favorable attitude towards Fox News. “I have been talking about this ever...

    t’s well known that CNN senior media reporter Brian Stelter is no fan of President Trump. He even goes as far as to question’s the President’s mental stability and was overjoyed when the rest of the media were pushing their hot takes too. During Sunday’s Reliable Sources, he opined about how the White House was in day 470 of what he called a “credibility crisis.” And despite how the show is supposed to be about the media, Stelter dismissed the notion media was having their own crisis after their “no good, very bad week.” After highlighting what would be discussed...

    On Friday, shortly after President Donald Trump's announcement of air strikes against Syria, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow twice put on her tinfoil hat, alleging that there is a "perception that the president may have ordered these strikes in part because of scandal," and that Trump's decision "may have ... (been) inflected by the scandals surrounding him." Maddow even contended that this alleged perception of scandal-driven decision-making will "affect the impact and the effectiveness of these military strikes." Maddow's first speculation appeared shortly after Trump's announcement:Transcript RACHEL MADDOW: As we follow the news in these incredible days that we have been having recently...

    Tin foil hats were bountiful on Saturday morning’s AM Joy as MSNBC host Joy Reid laid out a conspiracy theory for the ages, hyperventilating over a scenario in which President Trump refuses a subpoena from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and is either arrested by U.S. Marshall or barricades himself in the White House.  Real Clear Politics writer Ian Schwartz flagged this down, beginning with Reid’s liberal fan fiction telling former Watergate prosecutor Nick Akerman to imagine “that Donald Trump decides he doesn't want to give an interview with Mueller, but Mueller says, ‘Oh, but you will.’”Tin-Foil Fantasy: Reid Dreams Up...

    In what really could only be described as a completely bonkers conspiracy theory, The Nation magazine editor Katrina vanden Heuvel suggested Sunday that Rex Tillerson was fired from the secretary of state position because his replacement was funded by the Koch brothers and because the administration wanted a war with Iran. If you’re confused, don’t worry, the rest of the liberal panel on ABC’s This Week didn’t seem to be able to follow her convoluted mess either. The ridiculousness began when a conversation about the firing of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was derailed by vanden Heuvel, who decided...

    Monday was marked by the rolling train wreck that was former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg’s seemingly non-stop appearances on cable news shows taunting Special Counsel Robert Mueller for subpoenaing him. During his wild interviews (which lasted from mid-afternoon into the night), Nunberg made numerous suggestions that federal investigators may have some kind of case against President Trump. And that was all the liberal network news outlets needed to run with it. Both CBS Evening News and ABC’s World News Tonight kicked off their programs with the jaw-dropping spectacle. On CBS, anchor Jeff Glor even announced that they were pushing back...

    MSNBC’s Katy Tur has a glaring habit of letting her anti-Republican hatred run wild while confronting and slamming GOPers on issues she knows little about. The same was true when she hosted the 2:00 p.m. hour of MSNBC Live on Wednesday when the network’s cameras were in Florida Governor Rick Scott’s office documenting anti-gun protestors screaming at the receptionists while he wasn’t there. Tur declared Scott was “refusing to speak” with them, but was later educated by his office and forced to report he was attending a funeral for one of the students slain in the Parkland shooting. “This is...

    CNN media reporter Brian Stelter was up in arms during Sunday’s Reliable Sources as he ranted about how the release of Nunes memo was a win for Fox News, more specifically Sean Hannity, and all the people in conservative media trying to create what he called an “alternative reality.” Stelter began the show with a twist on his usual lead-in loaded with hollow catchphrases: "This is Reliable Sources, our weekly look at the story behind the story, of how the media really works, how the news gets made. And this week, how misinformation gets made. The right unleashed its version...

    Conservative talk radio legend Rush Limbaugh came locked and loaded for Wednesday’s show, torching the liberal media as “childish,” “unstable,” and “entirely unfit to discharge their constitutional duties” in light of their “unhinged instability” at Tuesday’s White House press briefing concerning President Trump’s health. Limbaugh also hammered the liberal media as having turned the briefing room into “nothing more than Romper Room without a teacher” with “the kids playing in the sandbox, not getting their toys and not getting their lunches and not getting recess.” “Ladies and gentlemen, the childish display, the childish exposition and behavior of the Drive-By Media...
