VICE news broke a report that the United States Special Forces hired neo-Nazis as military contractors and paid them with taxpayer dollars.

The Base, one of the most violent neo-Nazi terror groups in decades, was paid by the Pentagon while working on “counterterrorism” in 2014. Hired under SOCOM, the Special Operations Command, 47-year-old New Jersey native Rinaldo Nazzaro had top-secret security clearance and was responsible for briefing special forces officers fighting in the Middle East.

According to a BBC report about militia groups grooming youth, Nazzaro was cited an “FBI analyst” and a “Pentagon contractor.”

“[I did] multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan over five years,” Nazzaro claimed in May 2019. He called himself “a targeter” and “a contractor,” at Victory Base Complex and other bases around Baghdad and northern Iraq.

“An international terrorist leader who was once a specialist in combatting jihadist terrorism turning his expertise around and aiming it at the U.S. government speaks to the growing professionalization of the far right as it transforms into a dangerous national security threat on American soil,” said VICE.

The Base is one of the terror groups in the U.S. attempting to start a violent race war. SOCOM said they were unable to find information on Nazzaro and Nazzaro refused to “confirm or deny” his work.

In an election year, it is commonplace for candidates to list lengthy endorsements in an effort to showcase the trust, loyalty and earned respect by recognizable names and organizations. This year, the process is a bit different.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden is winning far more endorsements from national security professionals and retired flag officers — and by a large margin. The former vice president has the endorsement of 780 retired military officers and national security appointees — nearly 12 times as many as Trump. On the flip-side, Trump has a total of 66.

Trump mask-shames CBS reporter Lesley Stahl — and ominously warns ‘much more to come’

Published

on

President Donald Trump has spent months belittling people for wearing masks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

His anti-mask attitude reportedly resulted in White House and campaign staff not wearing masks so as to avoid angering their boss.

And Trump has repeatedly attacked Joe Biden for wearing facial coverings -- even after the president was hospitalized for COVID-19.

But on Tuesday, Trump dramatically shifted his position and mask-shamed CBS "60 Minutes" reporter Lesley Stahl, posting video of her not wearing a mask while Trump was.

Trump included video of their interview in his tweet:
