Trump bizarrely denies knowledge of WikiLeaks despite his infamous ‘I love WikiLeaks’ rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump on Thursday claimed that he has no knowledge of WikiLeaks following the arrest of its founder Julian Assange — in spite of his repeated praise for the organization on the campaign trail in 2016.

“I know nothing about Wikileaks,” Trump said. “It’s not my thing.”

In January 2019, Business Insider noted that Trump publicly praised the infamous leak organization at least five times in the final months of his 2016 presidential campaign after it released internal Democratic National Committee documents that were damaging to Hillary Clinton.

“This WikiLeaks stuff is unbelievable,” Trump told a crowd in Ocala, Florida on October 12, 2016. “It tells you the inner heart, you gotta read it.”

The next day, he told supporters in Cincinnati that “it’s been amazing what’s coming out on WikiLeaks.”

Ex-Ambassador to Russia explains how Putin will exploit the divisions between Trump and his advisors

The former U.S. ambassador to Russia explained how Vladimir Putin will exploit the divisions between President Donald Trump and his advisors.

"A double bombshell in reporting from The New York Times this weekend about the president and his relationship with Russian president Putin," anchor Kasie Hunt said.

"First, The Times reports that the U.S. is escalating online attacks on Russia’s power grid in an effort, 'partly as a warning and partly to be poised to conduct cyber strikes if a major conflict broke out between Washington and Moscow.' But that’s not all," she noted. "The second bombshell in that report that officials are worried about briefing the president."

QAnon authors in a fight over doing an audiobook — because they think their followers can’t read

Published

on

On Monday, The Daily Beast reported that the authors of a popular book for believers in the QAnon conspiracy theory are in a bitter fight over whether or not to release an audiobook version.

QAnon: An Invitation to The Great Awakening came out last year and peaked near the top of the Amazon bestseller list in March. One of the book's co-authors, Dustin Nemos, is publicly attacking another co-author, who goes by the name of "JoeM," for his "petty and hostile and paranoid" refusal to help produce an audiobook, and notes that it is necessary because a disproportionate number of QAnon believers are elderly, have bad eyesight, and may not be able to read the book as text. JoeM, for his part, has accused Nemos of being a "grifter" who is trying to make a buck off of true believers.

Population of Earth to reach 9.7 billion in 2050: UN

Published

The world population is expected to climb to 9.7 billion in 2050 from 7.7 billion today, with the population of sub-Saharan Africa doubling, a United Nations report released Monday said.

The population could then grow to 11 billion by 2100, according to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs's "World Population Prospects" report.

The study paints a picture of a future in which a handful of countries see their populaces surge as life expectancy lengthens while the global growth rate slows amid declining fertility rates.

By 2050, more than half of the world's population growth will be concentrated in just nine countries: India, Nigeria, Pakistan, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Indonesia, Egypt and the United States.
