Right-wing Trump supporters believe Hollywood is ‘harvesting’ children for a drug that doesn’t exist

Des Moines, IA / USA - 01/30/2020: Enthusiastic Trump supporters waiting for the arrival of President Donald J. Trump on Thursday 01/30/2020 at his Keep America Great rally in Des Moines, Iowa.

Conspiracy-minded supporters of President Donald Trump have a new conspiracy theory about Hollywood and Democratic politicians harvesting children for a fake drug called adrenochrome.

As The Daily Beast reports, adrenochrome is actually “an easy-to-come-by chemical compound, usually found as a light pink solution, that forms by the oxidation of adrenaline, the stress hormone.”

However, believers in the QAnon conspiracy theory falsely think that the compound is actually a highly charged psychedelic that can only be extracted from children who are in heightened states of fear.

“For conspiracy theorists, adrenochrome represents a mystical psychedelic favored by the global elites for drug-crazed satanic rites, derived from torturing children to harvest their oxidized hormonal fear,” the report explains.

However, the idea that adrenochrome is a high-powered drug is a myth that grew in the 1950s and 1960s, and was famously popularized by author Hunter S. Thompson in his classic book, “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”

“The compound’s supposedly psychedelic properties have been debunked, in part by Thompson himself, who reportedly told Terry Gilliam, director of the black comedy’s adaptation, that he had invented its effects,” the report notes. “Eduardo Hidalgo Downing, a Spanish writer behind the meandering drug memoir Adrenochrome and Other Mythical Drugs, described it as ‘an absolute bullsh*t,’ [sic], adding that ‘it is of no value in psychoactive terms… it is infinitely more useful to drink a cup of coffee.'”

Nonetheless, the belief that the phony drug can only be harvested from frightened children fits in perfectly with QAnon’s belief that the entire Democratic Party is a Satanic global pedophile ring that is slowly being unraveled by President Donald Trump.

Lindsey Graham lashes out at ‘clueless’ Comey after GOP chair gets accused of ignoring Russian election threat

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Wednesday lashed out at former FBI Director James Comey after Comey accused him of ignoring the ongoing threat of Russian interference with America's elections.

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Comey schooled Graham on the necessity of investigating whether President Donald Trump's campaign worked with the Russian government against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Although special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the matter did not establish a criminal conspiracy, it did reveal multiple contacts and meetings between Trump officials and Russian agents throughout the campaign. Mueller also found that the Trump campaign sent multiple signals to the Russians that they welcomed their help in taking down Clinton.

"He thinks he won the debate?" Varney wondered. "Does he think that?"
