Hillary-hating Washington man fatally stabs elderly ex-landlord he believed was a ‘demon’

Published

A Washington man told police he stabbed an elderly man, bludgeoned him with a sledgehammer and then set his house on fire because he believed the older man was possessed.

Jared Fudge was charged with first-degree murder and arson after police found the 82-year-old victim’s body inside the burning Okanogan County home, reported KREM-TV.

Police said witness descriptions of the arsonist’s cowboy hat and boots matched the 27-year-old Fudge, who was tracked to a tent in a nearby park.

Fudge had weapons with him, police said, and he had “black burned stuff” on his clothing.

Investigators said the victim, whose name has not been released, took out a restraining order against Fudge last year that expired in July.

Fudge moved his trailer onto the man’s property, but the land owner asked him to leave and eventually asked a court to intervene.

Court documents show Fudge once became so angry over their continuing dispute that he choked his own dog to death.

Investigators said Fudge admitted to stabbing the man with a machete and then lighting a fire in front of a wood stove, before going back upstairs to beat the elderly man with a sledgehammer.

Fudge then went to the older man’s truck and drank a beer, police said.

He decided not to drive the truck off the property because it was “too full of demons,” police said Fudge told them.

He walked back to his camp, washed his clothes and then hung them out to dry.

Fudge, who was also charged with burglary and theft of a motor vehicle, complained about Hillary Clinton and “haters” during the presidential campaign last year.

“Guess wat haters lol im back!!! this message is to all you haters out there go f*ck your selves u just made me stronger,” Fudge posted Oct. 29, 2016. “As for the election hillary dervers to die like the traitor and b*tch she is…. she is guilty for almost 5000 peoples deaths world wide and many other things…u can hate me love me or leave me…to those that are my family love you and thank you. but to those plastic pretenders i dont need you ty have a great day…”

Other social media posts indicate Fudge held anti-Muslim views, loved guns, and supported legal marijuana and the display of Confederate flags.

“It’s a flag it’s part of freedom. And your right as a citizen. Sod off,” Fudge posted July 1, 2015. “I wear one on my buckel u got a problem ? U mad bra. Cause I’m not … Vote for freedom not dum dum … Where are all our rights anyway ….uncle Sam? And stupid people shut up … Don’t erase history an say it didn’t happen…. It did!.. just cause I like a flag doesn’t mean I like slavery ..did u know weed was legal in the south it was only illegalized after hemp was found to be a threat to the cotton industry ..Now this may not be in order but it’s awfully close…if we don’t know and respect the past how can we learn from it…Or are we doomed to repeat it.”

Trump is trying Middle East Peace plan 2.0 after the first one flopped

Published

on

President Donald Trump is scheduled to submit his second Middle East peace plan after the first one senior son-in-law Jared Kushner came up with didn't go over very well.

"We will get this done," Trump claimed in May 2017.

“We'll start a process which hopefully will lead to peace,” Trump said. “Over the course of my lifetime, I've always heard that perhaps the toughest deal to make is the deal between the Israelis and the Palestinians. Let's see if we can prove them wrong, okay?”

Rage-filled Trump has crippled his presidency because he can’t let go of a grudge no matter how small: report

Published

on

According to a report in Politico, many of Donald Trump's problems are the direct result of his inability to get over the smallest of slights leading him to make poor decisions because he can't see his way to let go of a grudge.

The report notes, "Whether in the privacy of his clubs or out on the campaign trail, the president can’t help but hold onto a grudge. Even as Trump heads into an election year with a record that he claims ranks him among the best presidents of all time, political grievances continue to drive everything from policy decisions to rally speeches to some of the biggest scandals of his presidency — including his impeachment."

George Conway reveals Trump is being shunned by law firms because young lawyers ‘want nothing to do with him’

Published

on

Conservative attorney George Conway asserted in a column over the weekend that President Donald Trump's history of mistreating law firms is catching up with him.

In a Sunday op-ed for The Washington Post, Conway explains that Trump is now faced with sparse choices for legal representation in his impeachment trial after years of not paying attorneys and generally being a bad client.

Pointing to Trump's choice of Alan Dershowitz and Kenneth Starr, Conway writes:

?The president has consistently encountered difficulty in hiring good lawyers to defend him. In 2017, after Robert S. Mueller III became special counsel, Trump couldn’t find a high-end law firm that would take him as a client. His reputation for nonpayment preceded him: One major Manhattan firm I know had once been forced to eat bills for millions in bond work it once did for Trump. No doubt other members of the legal community knew of other examples.
