Fox News: U.S. soldier arrested in jihadist Ft. Hood plot

Published

on

Fox News reported Thursday that Pvt. Nasser Jason Abdo was arrested over a possible plot to attack Fort Hood. NBC Dallas-Fort Worth confirmed Abdo’s arrest a short time later.

An unnamed Army source reportedly told the network that Abdo had been found with explosives and jihadist materials.

Bob Jenkins, a Fort Campbell spokesman, said that the soldier had gone AWOL after being investigated for child pornography found on his government computer.

Reports said that two other soldiers were also being held in connection to the alleged plot.

A U.S. Army spokesman at the base could not immediately be reached for comment early Thursday.

On November 9, 2009, Major Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist who was set to deploy to Afghanistan, allegedly shot dead 12 soldiers and one civilian before police bullets wounded him.

Hasan, who goes on trial on March 5, faces the death penalty if convicted. Investigators allege that Hasan had contact with key Al-Qaeda cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi, a U.S. citizen who is at large in Yemen.

Trump has an ‘invulnerable reality distortion field’ — that makes Republicans defend the indefensible: GOP strategist

Published

on

Republicans are put in a difficult position by President Donald Trump's refusal to accept reality, a top GOP strategist explained on MSNBC on Monday.

Anchor Kasie Hunt played a clip of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo attempting to defend Trump's public statements that he could accept foreign election interference in hopes of being re-elected in 2020 despite his lousy poll numbers.

GOP strategist Michael Steel offered his analysis of the situation facing Republicans.

"This is the hardest thing for every surrogate of President Trump and every Congressional Republican to deal with," Steel explained. "His position is wrong. His position is indefensible. His position, even when he cleaned it up, wasn’t really right."

Ex-Ambassador to Russia explains how Putin will exploit the divisions between Trump and his advisors

Published

on

The former U.S. ambassador to Russia explained how Vladimir Putin will exploit the divisions between President Donald Trump and his advisors.

"A double bombshell in reporting from The New York Times this weekend about the president and his relationship with Russian president Putin," anchor Kasie Hunt said.

"First, The Times reports that the U.S. is escalating online attacks on Russia’s power grid in an effort, 'partly as a warning and partly to be poised to conduct cyber strikes if a major conflict broke out between Washington and Moscow.' But that’s not all," she noted. "The second bombshell in that report that officials are worried about briefing the president."

QAnon authors in a fight over doing an audiobook — because they think their followers can’t read

Published

on

On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that the authors of a popular book for believers in the QAnon conspiracy theory are in a bitter fight over whether or not to release an audiobook version.

QAnon: An Invitation to The Great Awakening came out last year and peaked near the top of the Amazon bestseller list in March. One of the book's co-authors, Dustin Nemos, is publicly attacking another co-author, who goes by the name of "JoeM," for his "petty and hostile and paranoid" refusal to help produce an audiobook, and notes that it is necessary because a disproportionate number of QAnon believers are elderly, have bad eyesight, and may not be able to read the book as text. JoeM, for his part, has accused Nemos of being a "grifter" who is trying to make a buck off of true believers.
