Conspiracy loon Alex Jones had crazed Harlem pastor James David Manning on his show today and the two of them really went to town about how President Obama will stay in the White House after this year’s presidential election.
Via Right Wing Watch, here’s the gist of it: They believe that criminal justice reform is just a fig leaf being used to cover up Obama’s plan to release a bunch of violent criminals onto the streets who will become his personal police force for maintaining power. Specifically, Jones said he thinks that the “Viacom, CIA-run weapons system is activating the Beyoncés and all the rest of the folks to say, ‘Go out and kill the pigs.’”
Activating the Beyoncés! Anything but that!
Manning shared Jones’ grim assessment and warned God-fearing Americans to be on the lookout for signs of Obama’s sneaky Beyoncé-activation program.
“He’s gonna try something, he’s going to,” Manning insisted. “He’s already put it in the works. I mean, remember, Obama is CIA, understand that he is a compadre with Putin in Russia, he’s not gonna walk away from world power. He just isn’t going to do it. And anybody who thinks that he does — now, I’m all for Trump, hey, you know I am, I’m all in on Trump — but anybody who thinks that Obama’s gonna walk away from power, you’re not thinking. You just aren’t thinking.”
You certainly aren’t.

Google tightens political ads policy in effort to stop abuse
Google on Wednesday updated how it handles political ads as online platforms remain under pressure to avoid being used to spread misleading information intended to influence voters.
The internet company said its rules already ban any advertiser, including those with political messages, from lying in ads. But it is making its policy more clear and adding examples of how that prohibits content such as doctored or manipulated images or video.
"It's against our policies for any advertiser to make a false claim -- whether it's a claim about the price of a chair or a claim that you can vote by text message, that election day is postponed, or that a candidate has died," Google ads product management vice president Scott Spencer said in an online post.
Pope Francis begins Asia tour with visit to Buddhist temple
Pope Francis will visit one of Thailand's famed gilded temples Thursday to meet the supreme Buddhist patriarch, on the first full day of his Asian tour aimed at promoting religious harmony.
The 82-year-old pontiff is on his first visit to Buddhist majority Thailand, where he will spend four days before setting off to Japan.
His packed schedule a day after touching down in Bangkok includes a meeting with the king and the prime minister before leading an evening mass expected to draw tens of thousands of people from across Thailand, where just over 0.5 percent of the population is Catholic.
Hong Kong campus stalemate persists while US congress passes bill of support for democracy protesters
Hardline Hong Kong protesters held their ground on Thursday in a university besieged for days by police as the US passed a bill lauding the city's pro-democracy movement, setting up a likely clash between Washington and Beijing.
Beijing did not immediately respond to the passage in Washington of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which voices strong support for the "democratic aspirations of the Hong Kong people."
But China had already threatened retaliation if the bill is signed into law by President Donald Trump, and state-run media warned Thursday the legislation would not prevent Beijing from intervening forcefully to stop the "mess" gripping the financial hub.
