Miami Herald throws support behind Republican who says she was abducted by aliens

Published

on

The Miami Herald has endorsed a Republican candidate running for Congress in Florida’s 27th District that says she was abducted by aliens when she was 7-years-old.

According to The Herald, the editorial board was put in an awkward position by the front-runners in the GOP primary, who refused to sit down with the paper. Another candidate said that he wasn’t interested in the endorsement. It left few options for the paper to consider for their political endorsements. However, they said that they were impressed by business consultant Bettina Rodriguez-Aguilera.

They touted her “working class agenda” with detailed reforms to make to housing, credit scores, student loan payments and other issues. She’s the daughter of Cuban political prisoner, Rodriguez Aguilera.

However, The Herald acknowledged that she’s an unusual candidate.

“Last year, she told the Miami Herald — and several Spanish-language media outlets — that she believes in extra-terrestrials,” the endorsement stated. “She says when she was 7, she was taken aboard a spaceship and, throughout her life, she has communicated telepathically with the beings, which remind her of the concrete Christ in Brazil.”

They were quick to explain that her secret telepathic conversations with aliens were “non-issues” because as a former official and businesswoman she is a professional.

The race is to fill a seat left vacant by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL). In the Democratic Primary, The Herald endorsed Democrat David Richardson, who spent 10 years at The Herald and as program director for the Knight Foundation.

Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) served as a payload specialist on the Space Shuttle Columbia. He has not revealed whether or not he saw aliens while in space.

Published

Allan Lichtman, a political historian who teaches at American University in Washington, D.C., became famous for correctly predicting President Donald Trump's upset win four years ago.

But in a new interview with The New York Times, Lichtman makes the case that Trump appears very unlikely to win a second term as the country has been racked for months by the coronavirus pandemic, high unemployment, and civil unrest.

Trump rants about ‘Marxist’ Black Lives Matter group on Fox News: ‘If I’m wrong I’m going to lose’

Published

President Donald Trump made clear he's pinning his re-election chances on opposing Black Lives Matter.

The president attacked the movement as a "Marxist group" during a Wednesday morning appearance on "Fox & Friends," but insisted he's done more for Black Americans than almost anyone else in history.

"With the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, it’s true," he said.

Trump then complained that the movement had gained "respectability" and bashed athletes for kneeling in silent protest during the national anthem.

“If I’m wrong, I’m going to lose an election, okay?" Trump said. "And that’s okay with me."

Pentagon officials bewildered by Trump’s claim Beirut explosion was an ‘attack’

Published

on

Defense Department officials were confused by President Donald Trump's claim that the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon was "a bomb of some kind," according to a report from CNN.

Trump claimed on Tuesday that military officials had told him the explosion was not an accident.

"According to them – they would know better than I would – but they seem to think it was an attack," Trump told reporters at the White House.

"CNN has reportedly spoken to U.S. defense officials who said there is absolutely no indication that it was an attack and, if there was, efforts would have already been made to protect U.S. troops and assets in the region. That hasn't happened," reported Jamie Ross of The Daily Beast.
