My One-Degree-Of-Separation From The Trump-Russia Investigation
It turns out, I used to host a podcast with a possible Trump-Russia person-of-interest.

The Kremlin-Friendly Congressman Who Dismisses the Notion of Russian Hacking is at it Again
In what must go down as one of the most reprehensible posts the site has ever published, Jones uses a supposed viral video that proves Michelle Obama "is a man" to lure readers into buying "bone broth" supplements that give you the strength of a caveman.
Megyn Kelly's interview with the InfoWars founder was tough, but didn't strike at the root of the issue - the appeal of conspiracy theories and distrust of news
In any other era, no reputable media company should give Jones the time of day, let alone give him a prime time slot to pontificate on "animal human hybrids" or whatever brain fart he happens to be having at any given moment. But this is the era of Donald Trump, and the rules have changed.
"The president’s so busy and fighting and winning so good"
Corsi is liar and a propagandist. Exactly nothing he's reported has held up to scrutiny. Politifact has only rated three of Corsi's claims, but, predictably, all three are either "False" or "Pants on Fire."
Shocking, right? And it won't make a lick of difference to anyone stupid enough to listen to InfoWars.
Trump's longtime friend, mentor, and goddamn crazy person Roger Stone is accusing Jared Kushner of trying to oust Steve Bannon with the help of Joe Scarborough. This is our government now.
He just leaked dozens of hours of audio he says was secretly recorded inside CNN. Here's what you should keep in mind before the usual freak-out begins.
Lies, conspiracy theories, and general bullshit. That's what so much of the internet traffics in now. And if we can't agree on what the truth is anymore, we're doomed.
What could trump a recommendation from Alex Jones' highly respected website Info Wars?
Jokes aside, Sarah Palin might actually need psychological help.
Hint: it will involve a ball-gag.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the craziest conspiracy theory of 2016. In an amazing 10 minutes of utter lunacy from 'InfoWars' nutjob Alex Jones, the conspiracy theorist lays out why he genuinely thinks Beyonce's latest video 'Lemonade' was paid for by the CIA in order to cause "urban terrorism".
Justice Antonin Scalia died of a heart attack. He wasn't murdered and he damn sure wasn't "assassinated." Motherfucker died the way most 79-year-old overweight guys do. Get over it.
This is what happens when your newsroom trolls the wingnut-o-sphere for content.
Now can we finally lay this awful lie to rest?
Over the weekend, Bidondi pounded the pavement again in Jones' name, this time following an alleged explosive noise at a Rhode Island beach.
"Shooting Skeet" -- Donald Trump is Officially Running for President; The Clown Car Has a Driver; Trump's Announcement Speech; Lindsey Graham Shooting Skeet; Crazy California Politician Blames Drought on Abortion; God is an A-hole; Ben Carson is the Frontrunner; The Rachel Dolezal Controversy; Alex Jones Rants About Hillary's Voice; and much more.

The inmates now genuinely run the asylum. At least in Texas.
Here's where I point out that what I'm about to tell you isn't a joke. I am not making this up.
Rand Paul once said the government might enforce mandatory vaccinations by declaring martial law.
At several points along the way, his face literally turns several shades of purple as he belches through what sounds like the last remaining shreds of his sand-papery vocal cords.
Should these people be stripped of their voter registrations?
Fist, meet wall.
Bob and Chez discuss Obama's no-win situation with ISIS, Michael Moore's latest emo lament, 9/11 video replays and the new tape from InfoWars stooge Dan Bidondi.
Donté Stallworth is The Huffington Post's new national security fellow. You've probably seen him on the football field. Or on Twitter claiming that 9/11 was a hoax, vaccines are bioweapons, and HAARP controls the weather.
This week, The Guardian's Alan Rusbridger and Ewen MacAskill flew to Moscow and conducted a seven hour interview with the world's most famous NSA fugitive. Seven hours is a massive window of time through which a bounty of crazy things can emerge.
Weird Al is back and has recorded the unofficial anthem of the Alex Jones Show.
Alex Jones wants you to know he's not drawing any conclusions or anything, but he's just putting it out there.
Alex Jones minion Dan Bidondi is running for the state senate in Rhode Island. Or, possibly, for mayor of Geocities.
On his show today Jones insisted he's not making anything up. Specifically, he's not making up "jack crap."
The great thing about America is that almost anybody can run for public office. The frightening thing about America is that almost anybody can run for public office.
The following segment from his show is utterly astonishing. In the same four-minute span from today's show, Jones suggested he's absolutely not responsible for influencing InfoWars disciples Jerad and Amanda Miller to launch a "revolution" against the Vegas police, but then went into detail about how the police, with their military-style armored vehicles, will lose 300,000 officers when the impending civil war begins against who Jones referred to as "patriots."
For the most part you won't hear otherwise responsible mainstream news outlets pulling back the layers to uncover the rotting cultural cancer at the center of the Millers' ideology, because to do that would mean that a certain amount of blame would have to be placed and phony political objectivity would have to be cast aside.
These militiamen and gun hoarders don't require much of an excuse to start shooting, and when politicians and the far-right media routinely legitimizes the use of firearms as a means of resolving conflict, we can't be expected to believe that it was something else that motivated the Millers to take up arms and act upon the urging of everyone from Michele Bachmann to Alex Jones to soon-to-be U.S. senator and pig-castration expert Joni Ernst.
It was only a matter of time before video emerged of the Las Vegas gunman, Jerad Miller, speaking to a reporter during the Bundy Ranch fiasco.
With predictable timing, Alex Jones has announced that the Las Vegas police-shooting/murder-suicide was staged by Sen. Harry Reid (R-NV) in order to mischaracterize Bundy Ranch supporters as being violent thugs and weirdos. Right off the bat, the Bundy Ranch cowboy cosplayers don't need any help looking like thugs and weirdos -- they're doing just fine on their own.
The husband-and-wife team that shot and killed two Las Vegas police officers, then killed a third person at a nearby Wal-Mart before taking their own lives, had an extensive history of far-right, anti-government beliefs and were obsessed with conspiracy theories and the idea of killing cops. All of this is well-documented and can be seen for yourself simply by combing through the couple's various social media accounts.
A couple of days before the event, word began circulating online that Operation American Spring was actually nothing but a trap designed to lure millions of freedom-loving patriots to Washington, DC, where federal agents would then swoop down on them and round them up, Gestapo-style.
Now comes this: the news that Lyon's starting a website called Reset.me, which she hopes will be a valuable resource for anyone seeking information on alternative remedies for whatever ails them. And by alternative remedies, she means 'shrooms and yajé. Lyon claims that she began doing ayahuasca out of desperation to treat the PTSD she suffered in the wake of, you know, working in TV news.
Last night at a conference in Los Angeles, Karl Rove launched what could possibly be the next Truther movement: Hillary Clinton Brain Damage Truth. While participating in a round-table with former Obama administration press secretary Robert Gibbs and author Dan Raviv, the issue of Clinton's December 2012 fall due to a blood clot was shoehorned into the conversation.
According to Dr. Hannity, property rights are conditional — at least in cases where the property is owned by the government — on whether the owner has plans to build something on it. This is a groundbreaking interpretation of property rights that lesser minds like say, John Locke, were too limited to envision.
