‘The dumbest conspiracy of all time’: Veteran reporter blows up Trump’s crazed ‘Obamagate’ ramblings

Published

on

President Donald Trump over the weekend launched a series of attacks on former President Barack Obama in an effort to cast him as the purported mastermind of a conspiracy to ensnare former national security adviser Mike Flynn into a perjury trap.

Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman, however, writes on Twitter that Trump’s conspiratorial ramblings about Obama fall apart at the slightest scrutiny.

“Serious question for Trumpers: why would Obama ‘SPY’ on Trump campaign but not do anything with the info?” he asks rhetorically. “Put another way, why would Obama WH go to extreme lengths to break the law but not help Hillary win? That’s the dumbest conspiracy of all time.”

In fact, the public had no knowledge that the FBI was investigating the Trump campaign’s multiple contacts with Russian agents during the 2016 election until after the election had ended.

In contrast, former FBI Director James Comey dealt Hillary Clinton’s campaign a significant blow by publicly announcing the reopening of the investigation into her private email server just 10 days before the 2016 election, all while keeping the investigation into Trump a secret.

Desperate and ‘out-of-control’ Trump might prompt violent insurrection to stay in office: columnist

Published

on

Writing for the Daily Beast, columnist Michael Tomasky made a strong case that Donald Trump has removed any doubt that he is "morally unfit" to be president and, faced with the possibility he may not be re-elected, could resort to encouraging his followers to take up arms in his defense.

"Naively, I always thought that even Donald Trump would stop short of actually inciting violence. I mean, he’s the president of the United States," Tomasky began before adding, "History means nothing to him, and the future means even less. Presidents—all presidents, even ones I didn’t like—think about the office, the future implications of their actions, the future of our institutions."

Protests around the world: This time it’s different

Published

on

A profound, historical difference separates the protests across America the past six days from past eruptions of anger over police violence against black men and women. It’s a difference that isn’t showing up news reports, televised or print even though it’s quite apparent.

The differences are where these demonstrations are taking place and who is protesting,
