Rudy Giuliani now in bed with Russia ‘fake news’ spreading blogger to dig up more Ukraine ‘dirt’

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani came under scrutiny this week for jetting off to Ukraine to push anti-impeachment conspiracy theories, following Fox News’ decision to kick him off the air.

But his exercise may be even stranger than initially reported. According to The Daily Beast, Giuliani’s Ukraine trip, and the content he generates from it, is intended to air on the show of Chanel Rion, a conspiracy theorist and anti-feminist children’s book author who works for One America News, the pro-Trump network that was created to compete with Fox News.

The series is reportedly scheduled to begin airing on December 7 and 8, with the tagline: “REVEALED: UKRAINIAN WITNESSES DESTROY SCHIFF’S CASE EXCLUSIVE WITH RUDY GIULIANI: PARTS 1 AND 2.”

Rion has previously made a number of wild and baseless claims, including the Russian conspiracy theory that DNC staffer Seth Rich was assassinated by the Democratic Party, and that FBI lawyer Lisa Page had an affair with former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. She has also referenced “spirit cooking” — a far-right conspiracy theory, based on a completely innocuous line in one of Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails, that top Democratic officials are engaging in Satanic human sacrifice rituals and cannibalism.

In addition to all of this, Rion is a political cartoonist who has promoted bizarre far-right paranoia in her feature, “Left Edge.” One of her cartoons featured former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid visiting “Planet Zoombo” in a UFO. Another depicted the Oscar statue as pretending to be a transgender woman named “Oscareena” so it could get “the keys to the little girls’ peek-a-boo room.”

Giuliani, it seems, is being forced to dive deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole to find anyone willing to partner with him in his schemes to protect Trump.

The truth about Bernie Sanders’ medical records: They’re encouraging — but a key detail is missing

Published

on

When Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) landed in the hospital at the beginning of October 2019 after suffering a heart attack, it became guaranteed that his health would be an issue in the 2020 Democratic primary. The 78-year-old is known for his passionate rallies and reveling in the rigors of the campaign, but a candidate's health condition can change the course of an election, and a serious medical crisis like a heart attack puts into question his ability to do the job.

To help allay these concerns, Sanders assured voters that he would release "comprehensive" medical records. But he hasn't, and now it seems he doesn't plan on doing it. Instead, he released three letters in December from doctors describing his health positively and vouching for his ability to handle the campaign trail and potentially, the presidency.

How the question of who killed JFK emerged in an unexpected way on the 2020 campaign trail

Published

on

On Monday night in Fairfax, Virginia, Donald Jeffries, author and talk radio host, asked Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard about a book she was seen carrying, “JFK and the Unspeakable.” Published in 2008, the book is a Catholic philosopher’s meditation about the assassination of liberal president John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963, one of the great historical crimes of American politics.

Gabbard replied she had not finished the book, but “from what I have read, it… speaks to what happened [on November 22] in a way that I haven’t seen anywhere else.”

Trump whines about losing the Time ‘Man of the Year’ award he lost to a teenage girl

Published

on

President Donald Trump goaded his audience into booing a teenager during a campaign rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday.

Trump said, "I got beaten up by Greta" -- in reference to Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who recently celebrated her 17th birthday.

The leader of the free world went on to complain about Thunberg being declared TIME magazine's "Person of the Year" award in 2019.

He said that many women wish it was still "Man of the Year" and suggested separate categories by gender, which would prevent him from competing against European teenage girls.
