QAnon Senate hopeful busted for filing false police report about adult bookstore: report

Pushing conspiracy theories is allowed in political campaigns, but one GOP Senate hopeful found out the hard way that police have less tolerance for delusions than the electorate.

"Ryan Dark White, a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate in Maryland under the name Jon McGreevey, has been arrested and charged with filing a false report after he allegedly told law enforcement an adult bookstore in Edgewood was forcing a young girl to perform sex acts on men, the Harford County Sheriff's Office said. The sheriff's office now says the story was made up," CBS Baltimore reported.

‘Your words did matter’: Insider calls on Lin Wood to take responsibility for inflammatory tweets on Jan. 6

Lin Wood, a high-profile lawyer involved in the litigation seeking to overturn the 2020 election who unleashed a series of incendiary tweets leveling accusations of treason at Vice President Mike Pence, has vehemently insisted that his social media activity bears no connection with the attack on the US Capitol.

Wood received some pushback from Patrick Bergy, a former military contractor who is the primary source for the “ShadowGate” conspiracy theory, during Bergy’s podcast on Tuesday evening. Bergy was embedded with a group known as “Team America” in Washington, DC in late 2020 and early 2021 that worked to supply information geared towards overturning the election to the attorneys, including Wood, who were litigating the cases.

Outlandish claims about Pence circulated on Jan. 6 came from a familiar source—a Seth Rich conspiracy theory

Beginning late into the night of Jan. 5, 2021 and continuing through the middle of the next day, as President Trump was speaking the Ellipse and Congress was preparing to certify the electoral vote, two high-profile influencers active in the effort to overturn the election unleashed a torrent of tweets resonant with the sense of betrayal and anger that the president’s supporters were feeling.

Lin Wood was an attorney involved in the legal challenges seeking to overturn the election and someone with a Twitter account whose reach among election deniers was exceeded only by the president himself. Ron Watkins was a former administrator for 8kun, an anonymous online forum notorious for circulating conspiracy theories, and key figure in the QAnon movement. In the hours and days leading up to the assault on the US Capitol, the two men worked in tandem on Twitter to promote a narrative of massive government betrayal that specifically homed in on Vice President Mike Pence as a “traitor” as Trump told his followers: “All Vice President Pence has to do is send it back to the states to recertify and we become president and you are the happiest people.”

Cuomo and Christie: A pair of bullies

A year and a half into a once-in-a-century mass death event, we are still held captive by a deadly pandemic and a scourge of endemic political corruption that enabled Andrew Cuomo to remain in power far too long. Until the New York governor finally saw the writing on the wall and announced his resignation this week, he shamelessly attacked the very same attorney general who, just months earlier, he asked to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

As the world now knows, independent investigators charged with conducting the probe on behalf of Attorney General Letitia James concluded that from 2013 through 2020 Cuomo "sexually harassed multiple women" and violated state and federal law in a spree of "inappropriate groping, kissing, and hugging" while creating "a hostile work environment rife with fear and intimidation."

Jeffrey Epstein is Exhibit A for capitalism’s moral bankruptcy

I was sitting just a few yards away from Jeffrey Epstein as he sat with his defense counsel in Federal Court on July 8. His demeanor was more like an American Express Black Card member frustrated by a flight cancelation than a man facing sex trafficking charges that could put him away for 15 years.
