Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is spreading a conspiracy theory that Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg chose to die to help Democrats in the 2020 election.
Video of Jones’ Infowars show was posted online by the watchdog group Media Matters for America.
“And this, you know, I talked to a White House adviser as well, not just the two of the White House lawyers today, just in the last 30 minutes before we went — when you were already live, I was talking to them,” Jones claimed.
“And they said, look, the really sick math is they had her on life support, they could keep her alive with adrenaline and growth hormone and blood transfusions, and it was her wish to go ahead and die to get the vote out as a blood sacrifice because her main mission was to get abortion, which she helped get through, and that blood sacrifice that [Sen. Chuck] Schumer [D-NY] talked about, if you want a war, quit letting us have the blood of the babies, we need that satanic energy,” Jones claimed.
Trump is already complaining about losing to Biden
During his latest rally, President Donald Trump lamented that former Vice President Joe Biden is at 50 percent in the polls.
Speaking to a Wisconsin crowd on Saturday, Trump said that they would joke that Biden was "1 percent Joe," seemingly tying Biden's television ratings to approval ratings.
"He's at 50 percent," said Trump. "And at 50 percent he wins. You explain: Is politics crazy or what?"
The moment came after Trump alleged that the coronavirus was already "going away" and that the day after the election all of the states would reopen.
‘Chaos and confusion’: Election head in solid GOP state bashes Trump for ‘undermining’ their mail-in voting efforts
Donald Trump's attempts to cast doubt on the result of the 2020 presidential election -- which appears to not be going his way -- is causing headaches and grief in Utah where voters who have overwhelmingly voted by mail are now in a panic over whether their votes will be counted.
According to a report from Washington Post, Weber County -- a rock-ribbed Republican district of 260,000 -- began using mail-in voting in 2013 with no complaints. In fact, according to the report, 'more than 99 percent of ballots cast in the  primary were placed in the mail or deposited in a dropbox."
Republicans have more to gain from losing the election — and they know it: Columnist
On Saturday, writing for The Week, Matthew Walther argued that Congressional Republicans' recent behavior shows they have made peace with losing the election — that, indeed, they are looking forward to it, and have mapped out what they will do next as the party out of power.
"Faced with the possibility of losing both the White House and possibly even the Senate in a year in which Democrats are also expected to consolidate control of the House as well, Republicans have resigned themselves to a half decade or so of opposition," wrote Walther. "Many of them are relieved at the thought of not even having to pretend to govern as members of a minority party — better yet, in the case of those who expect to lose their seats, at the not very remote possibility of a well-remunerated position with a lobbying or consulting firm."
