    The Hill ^ | 9/24/2018 | John Feehery
    In 1968, on the eve of the presidential election, Lyndon Johnson found out that Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger were actively working to stop his administration from concluding a peace deal with the North Vietnamese. Nixon didnít want that kind of October surprise to shift the election to Johnsonís vice president, Hubert Humphrey. Unfortunately for LBJ, he couldnít reveal that kind of political hanky-panky because he found out about it by illegally wiretapping the Nixon campaign. In 1980, rumors were rampant that the Reagan campaign had actively worked to ensure that Iran wouldnít give back the American hostages right before...

    The Week ^ | August 24, 2018 | Peter Weber
    In the early days of the Trump administration, a memo of uncertain origin circulated at the highest levels of the White House laying out a conspiracy theory about "coordinated attacks" on President Trump's foreign policy agenda from a group of former Obama administration officials, according to a memo obtained by The New Yorker's Adam Entous and Ronan Farrow. The memo, which "reads like a U.S. military-intelligence officer's analysis of a foreign-insurgent network," they wrote, posited that "the communications infrastructure ... used to sell ObamaCare and the Iran Deal to the public ('Echo Chamber') has been shifted from the White House...
  • What If Trump Is Trying to Throw the 2018 Elections?

    OPINION ó In this time of tumult, political truths are being knocked off their pedestals faster than Confederate statues. But even now, it seems ludicrously self-evident that a president wants to elect a Congress of his own party. Donald Trump, however, is a president who marches to a different brass band. Consider what he has done in just the last week. Tuesday morning, the president unleashed a bitter Twitter attack on the ďglobalist Koch Brothers,Ē excoriating as ďoverratedĒ the network of conservative donors who have been the bulwark of congressional GOP funding in the super PAC era. Trumpís Treasury Department...

    More than 200 environmental activists were murdered last year as government-sponsored killings linked to lucrative projects by vast agriculture multinationals soared, a global rights watchdog warned on Tuesday. Global Witness said it had documented 207 cases where activists were killed while trying to protect land from development, often for the production of consumer staples such as coffee and palm oil, making 2017 the deadliest year on record for environmentalists.(snip) The watchdog said it had found evidence that government actors --soldiers or police-- were responsible for 53 of the deaths.

    A single letter has begun appearing on billboards near highways across the United States and on t-shirts at Trump rallies, and it has become an internet sensation among many conservatives. ďQĒ represents a mysterious individual, or group of individuals, who began in October 2017 posting online updates on secret actions allegedly taken by the Trump administration to purge corruption from the United States and the world.

    The Washington Free Beacon ^ | 29 June 2018 | Alex Griswold
    A number of liberal Twitter users and journalists spread a conspiracy theory Thursday insisting a Department of Homeland Security document contained a secret Nazi code. In February, DHS put out a press release entitled "We Must Secure The Border And Build The Wall To Make America Safe Again," a fact-sheet making the case for President Donald Trump's proposed border wall. "When it comes to stopping drugs and illegal aliens across our borders, border walls have proven to be extremely effective," it argued. The press release went largely unnoticed until months later, when a tweet accusing the document of being a...

    The announcement that President Donald Trump wanted to create a ďSpace ForceĒ that would serve as a co-equal branch of the Armed Forces brought a wide range of reactions. Some experts believed we needed it to defend U.S. interests above the clouds, including protecting our satellites and preventing orbital bombardment by China or Russia. Others posited it as a dangerous step toward the irrevocable militarization of space. And some said it didnít matter, either because the unilateral expansion of the armed forces is beyond the scope of presidential power, or because Trump says heís going to do a lot of...

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

    Stormy Danielsís attorney Michael Avenatti said Tuesday that President Trumpís 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...

    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 ďall-out assault on our democracy,Ē 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.
