‘Stop The Steal’ Lawyer Says 9/11 Was Faked With Computer Graphics: ‘We Got Played’

Maybe you thought you’d heard all of the crazy conspiracy theories floating out in the internet ether. After all, Alex Jones suggested the Sandy Hook shooting that killed 20 children between the ages of six and seven had been a “false flag” orchestrated by the government in an effort to impose draconian gun control on the country. He found out this week that his lies are going to cost him a tidy sum.

And now stepping up the plate is “Stop the Steal” attorney Lin Wood, who has said so many bizarre things it’s hard to keep up with the trail of bullshit he’s spread from one end of the country to the other.

Wood is an ardent believer in the nonsensical QAnon movement, has claimed that he toured the White House in April and Donald Trump was still living there, and then went full batshit crazy just last month by declaring:

“Illuminati is real.”

For his latest trip down the proverbial mental rabbit hole, Wood is trying to convince us that the 9/11 attacks were merely images generated by computers so the government could hide the theft of trillions of dollars that were somehow stolen.

According to Boing Boing, Wood was speaking in his home state of Georgia when he reached deep into his bag of insanity and pulled out this gem:

“Nine eleven. You want to talk about that? Let’s talk about CGI. You know what that is? Computer graphics generated images. You know what CGI is? You know what deep fake videos are? I know you know what photoshopping is.

“Two thousand one. The estimate was there was three and a half trillion dollars. That was the estimate, that had been stolen from the defense budget. They were going to have hearings starting on November the 12th to discuss that money that had been stolen and was missing. That was your money by the way.”

But that was just the beginning of the nonsense. Wood then added:

“And then all of a sudden, on 9/11, what appeared to be a plane hit one building, what appeared to be a plane in another building. Then, later that night, another building failed, and I wasn’t hit by a dadgum thing. It was the building that went down, Building Seven, that had all the paperwork in it with respect to the missing money.

“And the Pentagon got hit by a missile. There were no plane fragments found anywhere on any of the sites — New York, Pennsylvania, the Pentagon. And they just happened to hit where the papers were about the missing money. There are no coincidences. We got played. We got played by people that are so evil that for money they killed 2,800 Americans on that day, including policemen and firefighters. If George Bush 43 is not already in Hell, then he needs to go to jail before he goes to Hell because he is a criminal.”

Dude! What in the hell are you talking about? It’s a wonder someone hasn’t already dropped a net on this guy. He needs to be straitjacketed, sedated, and put in a padded room STAT.

For his own safety, can we please put Lin Wood someplace secure so he can’t infect the rest of the world with his insanity?

Fox News’ Latest Conspiracy Theory: Biden Is Using COVID To ‘Distract’ From Afghanistan

It was only a matter of time before the blockheads at Fox News cooked up yet another conspiracy theory, and they’ve really outdone themselves with their latest lunacy.

During a segment on the network Sunday, host Rachel Campos-Duffy told viewers:

“The White House was busy making headlines this week — but not about our Afghanistan response. The president instead announcing he will give a booster shot and mandating the vaccine for nursing homes staff. But is this just an attempt to distract the American people away from the Afghanistan crisis?”

Republicans think that because their tangerine lord and savior, Donald Trump, could never walk and chew gum at the same time, and the fact that Biden can must be proof of some nefarious intent.

Fox News “medical correspondent” Dr. Marty Makary then joined the discussion, telling Campos-Duffy:

“There have been daily headline-grabbing announcements from the White House with no new supporting data. And then on Thursday, they hit the nuclear button and said the FDA is going to grant full approval [for COVID-19 vaccines] and they gave those details yesterday.”

How exactly is keeping the American public informed about the latest regarding vaccines for the biggest public health crisis in a century hitting the “nuclear button?” It’s safe to say most of us want as much information as possibly about coronavirus since it’s a clear and present danger.

Makary then added:

“Medical advice should be exempt from partisan manipulation and news announcements like this. When we politicize COVID right now for the sake of changing the news cycle, it damages that great credibility and public trust of the medical profession.”

However, the good doctor failed to provide a shred of evidence that anything had been manipulated or politicized. It’s just a giant bag of crap soup the disinformation experts at Fox cooked up to rile their viewers.

The bottom line is this: Last week alone, COVID claimed the lives of about 1,000 Americans each and every day, according to the New York Times.

How many Americans died in Afghanistan over the past week? Zero. So which is the bigger threat? According to Fox, it’s what’s happening in a country 7,000 miles away. How’s that for some twisted logic and misplaced priorities?

Jill Biden Wears An Orthopedic Boot So Right-Wingers Claim It’s To Hide An Ankle Monitor

You probably heard that First Lady Jill Biden had surgery a couple of weeks ago for an injury she sustained while walking on a beach in Hawaii. Specifically, she had very simple procedure, as reported by USA Today:

“The first lady ‘underwent a successful procedure on her left foot to flush out debris from a puncture wound,” said Michael LaRosa, the first lady’s press secretary, in a pool report. ‘After inspection of the wound by medical staff, it is unclear what object caused the puncture. The wound is now clean, free of infection and it is anticipated that it will heal nicely.’

“The puncture took place last weekend, prior to her two official events in Hawaii, when the first lady stepped on an object on the beach, according to a previous pool report.”

However, when a photo came out of Mrs. Biden wearing an orthopedic boot, people wondered if perhaps the first lady had once again hurt her foot or was just wearing the device for stability. Only she and her doctor know for sure, and quite frankly none of us have a right to any other information.

However, in the absence of a press release from the White House, rumors began to take root on social media, where right-wing nutjobs decided that the boot was actually there to hide an ankle monitor.

Wait, what? Why would the first lady of the United States be wearing an ankle monitor? Well, if you listen to the QAnon/MAGA/Trumper fools who prowl the darkest corners of the internet, it’s all part of a big conspiracy involving secret crimes and cabals of Satan worshipers who like to eat the brains of children.

So, as you’d expect, the bullshit started right away, and it was just as fact-free and mind-numbingly absurd as you’d expect from fools who voted for a man as immoral and evil as Donald Trump.

Have you ever wondered if these conspiracy theory spewing idiots all live in the same town and get together regularly to coordinate their stupid tweets?

If they do, can we please cut the internet access to that location?

Wasn’t This Supposed To Be Trump ‘Reinstatement’ Day? Twitter Had Some Thoughts On It

According to Donald Trump’s most devoted (and deranged) acolytes and supporters, today, August 13, 2021, was supposed to be the day that he would be “reinstated” as president.

Mike Lindell, the CEO of MyPillow, has been saying ever since January that Trump was going to be magically back in the White House today, but considering that he’s a recovering crackhead, you have to wonder if perhaps he’s been hitting the pipe again.

However, Joe Biden remains president, and Lindell has been walking/running back his ludicrous prediction, saying in July:

“Here’s what I said about a week ago, I said we’re going to live stream to the world on the 10th, 11th, and 12th of August,” he explained about his cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. “But what I said was when you all see what I’ve seen and what I have, the morning of the 13th, you’re going to wake up and go, ‘Wow, what are we going to do?’ Everyone’s going to know it and that’s when we’re going to bring it to the Supreme Court.” Lindell didn’t say “that everything’s going to change the morning of the 13th” (a Friday the 13th, mind you), but “everybody’s going to know what I know.”

Translation: Forget what I said earlier. I was high on pillow fumes and Red Bull. You guys totally misunderstood what I tried to say. I never ever predicted such a thing.

Uh…yeah. OK. Whatever, man.

But the August 13 prediction did manage to produce one tangible bit of good: It resulted in some hilarious postings on Twitter. Take a look:

Oh well, maybe the MAGA morons can schedule another day for their next delusion. Is there anything happening on December 25 that would prevent them from making that Reinstatement Day Part Deux?

Maria Bartiromo Gets Shredded For Pushing New And ‘Incredibly Sick’ Capitol Riot Conspiracy

Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo set off a firestorm of criticism on social media Sunday for a conspiracy theory she pitched during an interview with failed, one-term former President Donald Trump.

Trump began the lying by asserting that the government official who shot Capitol insurrectionist Ashli Babbitt “was the head of security for a certain high official. A Democrat. It’s gonna come out.”

That was all Bartiromo needed to start spewing bullshit, claiming (with zero substantiation) that she had asked Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) for “answers,” but had been rebuffed by the senator.

But as many on Twitter pointed out, both Trump and Bartiromo are both clearly trying to incite more violence. One Twitter user noted:

“This is incredibly sick stuff. Maria Bartiromo’s show has become the go-to platform for the most malevolent garbage the MAGA crowd wants to circulate.”

Others also lit up Bartiromo (who pretends to be a journalist) for her irresponsible remarks:
