Navy suspends security clearance of right-wing conspiracist and Trump-lover Jack Posobiec: report

Published

on

One of the right-wing activists responsible for pushing the Seth Rich murder conspiracy theory is a Naval intelligence officer — and his Twitter habits have gotten him in hot water.

According to NBC News, prominent right-wing Twitter activist Jack Posobiec, a Naval reserve intelligence lieutenant junior, got his security clearance suspended.

NBC’s source declined to provide a reason for the suspension, but the report did note that between March 2014 and March 2017, Posobiec worked in Washington, D.C.’s Naval Maritime Intelligence Center — and during that time, spread theories about Rich and the so-called “Pizzagate” conspiracy. He also leaked emails from French president Emmanuel Macron’s campaign.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump retweeted a Posobiec tweet pitting violence in Chicago against the deadly violence that occurred at Saturday’s “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“Meanwhile: 39 shootings in Chicago this weekend, 9 deaths,” Posobiec’s Trump-retweeted post read. “No national media outrage. Why is that?”

Raw Story reached out to the Navy, who declined to provide a statement on Posobiec’s suspension. They did, however, provide information about Posobiec’s Naval career, which includes a number of awards and his current assignment to the Strategic Command Intelligence at Dekalb in D.C. Prior to his first assignment in Washington, Posobiec worked at Guantanamo Bay from September 2012 to July 2013.

Published

The official count of people dead from COVID-19 approached 100,000 — a milestone that will surely be passed on Tuesday or Wednesday — and the actual death toll is likely much higher. The weekend kicked off with new reports of soaring unemployment, putting the number of Americans who have filed benefit claims at 38.6 million, nearly one of every four workers in the United States.

Paul Krugman: Trump’s bungled coronavirus response shows how ‘much damage a leader with an infallibility complex can inflict’

Published

on

Former Vice President Joe Biden showed his willingness to handle some tough questions from the left when he recently appeared on rapper Charlamagne tha God’s radio show. The most controversial part of the interview came when Biden jokingly told Charlamagne, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black” — a comment Biden has since apologized for. And that apology, according to liberal economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, makes a “powerful case” for choosing Biden over President Donald Trump in 2020’s presidential election.

At Tuesday's White House coronavirus briefing, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany criticized former Vice President Joe Biden for wearing a mask during his outdoor event observing Memorial Day.

McEnany says “it’s a bit peculiar” that Biden doesn’t wear a mask when in the basement by his wife but “he’s wearing one outdoors when he’s socially distant.”
