White nationalist accused of bizarre scheme to impregnate autistic teen to secure US citizenship

Published

on

Jean-Francois Gariepy, a prominent Canadian white nationalist YouTuber who has in the past made videos with racist icon Richard Spencer, has been accused of trying to impregnate an autistic teenage girl in a bizarre bid to secure American citizenship.

The Daily Beast reports that court filings show that Gariepy recently tried to claim that a 19-year-old Hispanic woman — whom a counselor described as having “the social and mental maturity of a 10- or 11-year-old child” — was his pregnant fiancée in an apparent bid to become an American citizen.

However, a medical examination of the woman, whom Gariepy met over the internet, revealed that she was not pregnant.

Gariepy tells the Daily Beast that he did not try to impregnate the autistic teen for immigration purposes, and he says that suggestions otherwise are merely the accusations of “leftist women” who are out to smear him.

However, a court filing made by attorneys for Gariepy’s third wife in a child custody dispute show that he would have had reason to impregnate an American citizen if he’d wanted to stay in the United States.

“The defendant is a citizen of Canada and currently in the United States under a conditional visa based upon his marriage to the plaintiff,” his wife claimed in court documents. “Said visa is conditional and up for review by U.S. Immigration in July 2016.”

Gariepy, however, denies that his immigration status had anything to do with his decision to enter into a relationship with an autistic teen — and he notes that he has since moved back to Canada instead of trying to become a U.S. citizen.

Sen. Kamala Harris shut down MSNBC anchor Chris Hayes during a post-debate interview on Tuesday evening.

Hayes questioned Harris about her call for Twitter to follow their terms of service and kick President Donald Trump off of the platform.

"Do you think he puts people’s lives in danger when he targets them in tweets?" Hayes asked.

"Absolutely," Harris replied.

"Do you think he knows that?" Hayes asked.

"Does it matter?" Harris replied.

"The fact is he did it. The fact is that he is irresponsible, he is erratic," she explained. "He is like a 2-year-old with a machine gun."

Democrats blast Trump and demand his impeachment at CNN debate

Published

on

Democratic White House hopefuls united in searing condemnation of Donald Trump during their fourth debate Tuesday, saying the president has broken the law, abused his power, and deserves to be impeached.

From the opening moments, most of the dozen candidates on stage launched fierce broadsides against Trump over the Ukrainian scandal at the heart of the impeachment inquiry.

"The impeachment must go forward," said Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is neck and neck with former vice president Joe Biden at the head of the 2020 nominations race.

"Impeachment is the way that we establish that this man will not be permitted to break the law over and over without consequences," she thundered.

Here are 3 winners and 4 losers from the CNN/NYT Democratic presidential primary debate

Published

on

Twelve Democrats took to the stage Tuesday night for yet another debate in the party's 2020 president primary hosted by CNN and the New York Times.

After only ten candidates qualified for the previous debate, an additional two — Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and wealthy donor and former hedge fund manager Tom Steyer — made it to the stage this round for an even more crowded event.

The candidates discussed a range of important policy issues, but since the format was a debate, and they're all competing for the same nomination, it is ultimately most critical who won and who lost the night. Here are three winners and four losers — necessarily a subjective assessment, of course — from the debate:
