Florida rally cheers when Republican predicts Trump’s Jerusalem embassy decision may usher in Armageddon

Published

on

A conservative politician at President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Pensacola, Florida on Friday appeared to suggest that the president’s controversial decision to move the US Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem may usher in the biblical end times.

Republican state Senator Doug Broxson represents the Florida Panhandle in the legislature and gave an introductory speech welcoming President Trump to Florida.

“Now, I don’t know about you, but when I heard about Jerusalem — where the King of Kings [applause] where our soon coming King is coming back to Jerusalem, it is because President Trump declared Jerusalem to be capital of Israel,” Sen. Broxson predicted.

That was the only jaw-dropping line of the speech.

Trump “appointed 24 cabinet members that were the very best of the best, the brightest of the brightest,” Sen. Broxson claimed.

In a follow-up interview with Christianity Today, Broxson said he was “certainly not predicting when or where” the Second Coming of Jesus would happen. But he did think that Trump’s decision was “significant.”

He further added: “God throughout the Old Testament used peculiar people to fulfill his purpose. Those that sometimes didn’t even believe in him in the way that as we do. Could Trump be one of those people? Could be, I don’t know. But I don’t think it’s intentional, I think he’s simply doing what he said he would do during the campaign and letting the chips fall where they may.”

Stone is a longtime political advisor to Donald Trump.

Prosecutors debunk right-wing conspiracy theory in new legal smackdown of Roger Stone

Published

on

Federal prosecutors debunked a conspiracy theory pushed by the far-right in a new legal brief filed on Thursday.

Longtine Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone had argued federal investigators relied upon a report from the cyber research firm Crowdstrike to conclude that Russia had hacked the Democratic National Committee.

That contention, according to federal prosecutors, is "incorrect."

"While the prosecutors did not go into detail, they noted that the investigators gathered evidence of the Russians’ involvement independently, which led to the indictment last year of 12 Russian military officials in connection with the DNC hack," Politico reported.

‘Call the mall cops!’ Roy Moore roasted after saying he’ll make ‘more personal contact with people’ in Senate run

Published

on

Roy Moore, the far-right politician who infamously lost an Alabama Senate race in 2017 after allegations emerged about him molesting teenage girls, announced on Thursday that he was going to once again run for office in 2020.

While touting his potential rematch with Sen. Doug Jones (D-AL), Moore was asked by a reporter what he will do differently this time around.

"I would like to make more personal contact with people," Moore responded.

Given that Moore's history of "personal contact" with underage women was what cost him the 2017 Senate race -- and even allegedly got him banned from a shopping mall that grew weary of his regular efforts to pick up teen girls -- Moore was quickly buried in ridicule on Twitter.
