Jerry Falwell Jr busted for lying — repeatedly — about Miami Beach nightclub photos

Published

on

Jerry Falwell Jr. angrily insisted that he had never denied visiting a Miami Beach nightclub, where he was photographed partying with his wife, sons and daughter-in-law.

The Liberty University president was the subject of a Politico Magazine report based on anonymous quotes from school officials and other insiders describing his self-dealing and personal immorality, and his denials of the nightclub photographs led the the release of more photos — and more denials.

“Just for the record, I never denied going into a club with my family to listen to music for about 30 minutes years ago,” Falwell tweeted Wednesday. “I only denied I asked anyone to scrub pics of me. I never knew of any pics until a week ago DUH. LU’s lawyers and criminal authorities will go after the leakers.”

Brandon Ambrosino, the Liberty graduate who wrote the Politico feature, set the record straight.

“There was no picture snapped of me at WALL nightclub or any other nightclub,” Falwell told him Aug. 21, when asked about the photos. “I’m sure you already knew that though.”

Five days later, after being shown the photos, Falwell insisted that wasn’t actually him at the nightclub.

“If the person in the picture is me, it was likely photo-shopped [sic],” Falwell told Ambrosino on Aug. 26.

Falwell angrily replied to a Christian Post political analyst who called out his dishonesty.

“Maybe it was photoshopped, I don’t know,” Falwell replied to Napp Nazworth, of the religious publication. “But you’re missing the point: I never denied I was there 5 years ago. #FactsMatter”

The evangelical university president also replied to paleontologist and TV personality Trevor Valle, who accused him of lying about the incident.

“I never denied being there 5 years ago and I had no knowledge of any pics until a week ago,” Falwell tweeted. “#FactsMatter”

The owner of the photography agency World Red Eye, which documents Miami’s nightlife, stood behind the accuracy of the photos and strongly rejected Falwell’s suggestion that the images had been manipulated in any way.

Legal expert admits he was wrong to argue Trump wasn’t the worst president in history

Published

on

Fordham Law School Prof. Jed Shugerman confessed on Twitter that he was wrong, President Donald Trump really is the worst president in American history.

He explained that in the past he's tried to explain that previous presidents like Millard Fillmore, Franklin Pierce, James Buchanan and Andrew Jackson were the worst American presidents given what they did to persist the Civil War, the genocide of Native Americans and other acts. They were "openly siding [with] white supremacy and causing a civil war," which he said he thought was "far worse than anything Trump could do."

Trump’s dangerous mental condition grows worse as America faces devastating crises: Yale psychiatrist

Published

on

A nation most afflicted with a mental health problem is the least likely to address it.  I am speaking of the mental health, or lack thereof, of the president.  His psychological impairments have been deadly through action and inaction, and are now promoting police brutality through pronouncements such as, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” while marking protesters as “thugs”.
