On Tuesday, The Daily Beast’s Will Sommer reported that Austin Steinbart — a QAnon activist controversial even within the pro-Trump conspiracy world — plans to act as his own attorney in an upcoming federal criminal case.

The QAnon conspiracy theory — which has been listed as a potential domestic terror threat by national security officials — holds that President Donald Trump is secretly fighting a Democratic Party-controlled ring of pedophiles who consume children in Satanic cannibalism rituals. Steinbart refers to himself under the alias “Baby Q” and claims he is the original government insider who created the movement, time traveling from the future.

Steinbart was arrested by the FBI in April after he uploaded footage of himself at a mental health clinic in Los Angeles, gaining unauthorized access to what appeared to be the brain scans of NFL players. He was originally released on pretrial leave, but was arrested again last month after being caught with a “Whizzinator” — an artificial plastic penis used to smuggle clean urine to beat drug tests.

“During a court hearing on Tuesday, Steinbart admitted to smoking marijuana but sidestepped the Whizzinator issue. Now his release has been revoked, and he’ll stay in jail pending trial,” reported Sommer at the time. “The most immediate casualty of Steinbart’s Whizzinator misadventure appears to be the documentary about him. This week, the documentary’s creators said they would have to put the film on hold, both because Steinbart is in jail and because people keep making fun of the Whizzinator.”

Obama says some Black men are persuaded by Trump’s ‘macho’ bravado bragging about women and money

Published

In part two of the SnapChat interview with President Barack Obama, Peter Hamby asked how President Donald Trump was able to persuade so many Black men to support him over President-elect Joe Biden.

When Obama was elected he got about 95 percent of the Black vote, where Biden got about 80 percent.

"Well, look, I think men, generally, are more susceptible to public figures who act tough, sort of the stereotypical macho style," Obama said, while videos of Trump showing off his flabby muscles appeared. "I don't think Black men are immune to that any more than White or Hispanic men are. A lot of the values of pop culture are extolling wealth, power, frankly, greed, not thinking about other people because you're so ruthless you're just looking out for yourself."

Republicans are growing increasingly worried that conspiracy theories about mass election fraud may depress voter turnout and could cost them in the upcoming Georgia runoffs, and according to the Washington Post's Greg Sargent, there's a "vile aspect" to this development that's no laughing matter.

"Georgia Republicans don’t mind when Trump lies about the integrity of their elections in a way that they think will help them," he writes. "They only mind when Trump lies about the integrity of their elections in a way that threatens to harm them."
