This child sex predator visited the Trump White House 13 different times — and it wasn’t Jeffrey Epstein: report

President Donald Trump’s longtime friendship with accused pedophile Jeffrey Epstein has gotten renewed attention ever since Epstein’s apparent suicide earlier this month.

However, the president also has a relationship with a convicted child predator who has visited the White House 13 different times during Trump’s first term.

The Washington Examiner reports that George Nader, who has been convicted in the past for sexually abusing underage boys and who earlier this year was hit with fresh charges for possession of child pornography, routinely visited the White House for regular meetings with Steve Bannon during his tenure as Trump’s top political strategist.

“Nader first visited Bannon in the White House in February 2017,” reports the Examiner, which has obtained nonpublic White House visitor logs. “His dozen subsequent visits stretched through August, when Bannon was fired after seven months on the job. It’s unclear if Nader visited the White House after Bannon left.”

One of the Examiner’s sources claims that Bannon’s meetings with Nader in the White House “were always private meetings,” and the source said that they were “clearly” problematic for the one-time Trump campaign chairman.

A Bannon ally, however, tells the Examiner that Bannon “had zero knowledge of Nader’s criminal record” when he met with him, and pinned the blame on Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner for bringing Nader into the Trump inner circle in the first place.

Nader became an ally to the Trump campaign in 2016, when he met with Donald Trump Jr. to offer help with his father’s presidential race against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

‘Agents of chaos’ — including Donald Trump — are taking ‘a wrecking ball to American institutions’: Famous documentary film maker

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Kremlin clearly hope to sow discord in the 2020 election — and the FBI has warned that the Russian government will try to interfere in this election just as it interfered in the 2016 election. Documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney discussed Russia’s election interference with CNN’s Alisyn Camerota during a September 23 appearance on the morning show, “New Day,” describing some of the things Russian operatives have been doing.

Gibney, creator of the documentary “Agents of Chaos,” explained, “For the 2016 election, past is prolong. I mean, so many things that the Russians did and the way they took advantage of certain flaws in our system in 2016 are now coming back to haunt us in 2020. In 2016, you know, Donald Trump on the stump kept saying: if I lose, the election is going to be rigged. And the Russians were in election systems not to flip votes, but to sow doubt on the legitimacy of what everyone saw as an inevitable Hillary Clinton win.”

Trump’s most unhinged supporters paying $5 a pop to use special emojis on YouTube

Published

on

The pro-Trump cable network One America News is cashing in on QAnon conspiracy theorists on its YouTube channel.

OAN viewers can pay $4.95 a month to become "members" of the right-wing channel, which then allows them to use customized emojis to signal their recognition of the conspiracy theory's lore, reported The Daily Beast.

"It’s not clear how many people have signed up for the OAN YouTube membership, when OAN started offering the emojis, or how many of those sign-ups were driven by the opportunity to use QAnon emojis," writes The Beast's Will Sommer. "But the creation of the emojis reflects a decision to monetize, not expel, the conspiracy believers. If QAnon fans are going to spam QAnon in the OAN comments, it seems the network has decided they might as well get some money out of it."

Between the coronavirus pandemic, civil unrest in major U.S. cities, huge anti-racism protests, bitter political divisions, a heated Supreme Court battle and President Donald Trump’s ruthless voter suppression efforts, the United States’ 2020 presidential election is turning out to be even more chaotic than the elections of 2000 and 1968. Trump has a devoted loyalist in U.S. Attorney General William Barr, and former federal prosecutor Barbara McQuade discusses the effect he could have on the 2020 election in a disturbing op-ed published in the Washington Post on September 22.
