Neo-Nazi gang may get brought down because members discussed murder coverup — on a 911 call

Published

on

A newly unsealed Department of Justice indictment reveals that federal officials first started investigating a neo-Nazi gang called Aryan Circle when some of its members accidentally discussed covering up a murder during a 911 call.

The Daily Beast reports that trouble for the Aryan Circle began during a white supremacist house party in Evangeline Parish, Louisiana in 2016.

While at the party, gang members Jeremy Jordan and Clifton Hallmark got into an argument that allegedly ended with Jordan shooting Hallmark in the head. Two women in the gang, including one who was Hallmark’s wife, drove to a gas station to call 911 to get help for Hallmark, who at that time was clinging to life.

However, before she thought anyone on the other line could hear her, one of the women explained to the other that they were making up a cover-up story about how Hallmark got shot to protect Jordan from going to jail.

“We are going to tell them he got robbed, OK?” the woman said as the 911 dispatcher listened in.

The botched cover-up attempt set in motion a chain of events that the Daily Beast notes now threatens to destroy the entire Aryan Circle.

“The shooting got investigators’ attention,” the publication writes. “But the cover-up might bring down the group. The indictment unsealed last week accuses Jordan of using a firearm in a crime resulting in death, and seven Aryan Circle members of accessory after the fact to the murder.”

Peter Navarro warned Trump coronavirus could kill 500,000 Americans — back in January: NYT

President Donald Trump was warned COVID-19 could be catastrophic, according to a bombshell new report published online by The New York Times on Monday evening.

"A top White House adviser starkly warned Trump administration officials in late January that the coronavirus crisis could cost the United States trillions of dollars and put millions of Americans at risk of illness or death," the newspaper reported.

"The warning, written in a memo by Peter Navarro, President Trump’s trade adviser, is the highest-level alert known to have circulated inside the West Wing as the administration was taking its first substantive steps to confront a crisis that had already consumed China’s leaders and would go on to upend life in Europe and the United States," The Times continued.

Oil prices jump on hopes for output cut deal

Published

on

Oil prices rebounded Tuesday on fresh hopes an OPEC-led meeting this week will reach an agreement to reduce oversupply and shore up the market.

Prices have fallen sharply since expectations for a quick deal to cut output levels were dashed, but the rescheduling to Thursday of a meeting of major crude producers boosted sentiment.

US benchmark West Texas Intermediate was up 3.83 percent to $27.08 a barrel in Asian morning trade.

A barrel of Brent crude, the international benchmark, was trading 2.81 percent higher at $33.98.

Prices fell to 18-year lows last week as the market wallowed in oversupply arising from a price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, which have ramped up production.

Trump and his allies have financial ties to companies that manufacture untested drug he’s touting for COVID-19: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump's fixation with hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to treat malaria and lupus, as a potential treatment for the novel coronavirus has left many medical experts, including members of his own administration, frustrated. The drug comes with severe side effects ranging from nausea and hair loss to blindness and cardiac arrest; the hoarding of the drug to test it in COVID-19 patients has resulted in autoimmune patients being denied it, and the evidence that it even helps COVID-19 patients in the first place is anecdotal at best.
