WATCH: Man falsely claims to be Navy SEAL while waving gun at Black homeowner during racist tirade

Published

on

Joseph Fucheck was caught on video spewing a racist tirade while waving a gun at a Black homeowner. He also made a point to brag about his Purple Heart medal that he claims he received as a Navy SEAL, but according to police who later searched his home, his claims are fake.

“Fucheck, 58, has been masquerading as a Navy SEAL for years, adding another twist in the strange story that made headlines across the country,” the Miami Herald reports. “The Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce, which maintains paperwork for all SEALs since World War II, has no record of him. A real retired Navy SEAL, who tried confronting Fucheck a few years ago, called the man’s bogus dress uniform a ‘total and complete mess.'”

Even Fucheck’s daughter is saying his claims of military valor are fake.

“He’s a narcissist,” she told the Miami Herald. “He just has to be the center of attention.”

Fucheck drove a Jeep with a license plate specially designated for Purple Heart recipients — a tag that one can receive only if they submit legitimate military record to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

Fucheck remains in jail and has been charged with aggravated assault with prejudice, making his actions a possible “hate-crime” which is punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

During a panel discussion on the president's latest controversial remarks about the upcoming election, liberal guest Bakari Sellers argued that Americans should be "very terrified" about Trump implicitly encouraging violence in the event that he loses.

‘Five-alarm fire’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe explains why Trump is rushing to smash democracy

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough sounded the alarm that President Donald Trump had no intention of giving up the White House.

The president has admitted that he wants to ram through a new Supreme Court justice to help decide the election in his favor, and the "Morning Joe" host was shocked -- yet not surprised -- that Trump refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power.

"Some remarkable things that, actually, could be both shocking and not surprising at the same time considering that they come from Donald Trump," Scarborough said.

"For the first time in the history of this republic, you have a president of the United States, who will not commit to a peaceful transfer of power," he added. "At the same time he's asking Republicans to lie to their constituents and go back on what they said four years ago and ram through a Supreme Court justice. Why? Because he needs that Supreme Court justice to vote for him on any election disputes that he stirs up. That is pretty much a five-alarm fire."

Is Trump Putin’s friend, foe or useful idiot?

Published

“We assess that President Vladimir Putin and the senior most Russian officials are aware of and probably directing Russia’s influence operations aimed at denigrating the former US Vice President, supporting the US president and fueling public discord ahead of the US election in November.”

Thus reads the first line of a top-secret CIA assessment, published on August 31 but reported today. The report details how Ukrainian lawmaker Andriy Derkach, who, according to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the US Treasury Department is a Russian agent, is disseminating false stories about Democratic nominee Joe Biden through congressmembers, lobbyists, the media, and people close to the president. Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani has been openly working with Derkach for several months.
