Republican Wants to Take Over Congress with ‘Info Wars Candidates’ – Patheos (blog)

Michael Snyder is a far-right thinker running for Congress from (of course) Idaho. Hes also a big fan and frequent guest of Alex Jones. He told Jones that hes running in hopes of inspiring others to fill Congress with Info Wars candidates.

The movement needs to educate people, Snyder said, and thats what you guys are doing every day with the show and thats a big part of the reason Im running because we need people to runsome will win, some will losewe need people to run all over the country or else were going to get bad people into office. But a big part of running for office is educating people, because when you run for office, you get a platform. And whether you win or lose, youre going to talk to thousands, if not ultimately millions of people for the bigger campaigns, and people are going to hear the message, people are going to get educated. So part of this is an education process of what were trying to do, get the truth out.

The InfoWars audience has gotten so large and so powerful, Snyder said, that we could literally start taking over the Republican Party if we just get energized and motivated and galvanized to go vote.

Hell, theyre already part of the way there with people like Dana Rohrebacher and Louis Gohmert. They havent taken over completely, but I think hes right that they could largely do it. You look at the Republican National Committee and you have people like Dave Agema and Tamara Scott. This is I think the most interesting open question of the Trump era: In 10 or 15 years, will we look back on this as an anomaly, a one-off event that was the result of an odd confluence of events? Or will it be the new template for Republican candidates? I dont know the answer to that question.

Baby Doe Trial: Accused Killer ‘Loved Infowars,’ Thought Child Was ‘Possessed’ – Daily Beast

You killed my kid! Rachelle Bond screamed. Michael McCarthy just glared at her, as he crouched over the child on one knee. She was a demon, he told her. It was her time to die.

Bella Bond had not yet lived to see three. Her lifeless body bounced on the the mattress under the force of McCarthys blow, her face turning gray. He was supposed to be putting Bella to bed. Rachelle had only left him alone with her child for five minutes, and he had been so good with Bella before. Bond put her mouth to her daughters, and puffed out three breaths, she was trying to pull together what she learned of CPR from high schoolit didnt work. So Bond tried to cradle her baby in her arms. Thats when McCarthy grabbed Bond by the throat, and before she passed out, threatened to kill her.

Thats the story Bond told a jury in a Boston courthouse on Friday when she took the stand for two hours, for the first part of her long-awaited testimony on her daughters death. When little Bellas body washed ashore in black garbage bag on Bostons Deer Island, she captured the citys and the worlds imagination, as for months she remained Baby Doe, unidentified and unclaimed.

For his part, McCarthy claims Rachel Bond killed her daughter, and is trying to pin him for the crime. In the months Bella was missing, he says he thought she was taken by the Department of Children and Families, like Bonds other two kids.

The ends of Bonds long black hair have been trimmed neatly since she was first arraigned in September 2015. The gauntness in her cheeks is gone; during her stay at the Suffolk County House of Correction, shes put on weight. She made a deal with the commonwealth for her testimony by pleading guilty to accessory to murder after the fact, and larceny, and will be released from jail, on two years probation after the trial.

But even as the government presented its argumentthat McCarthy killed Bella, and threatened Bond, scaring her so badly she didnt tell anyone her child was murdered until months laterthe defense chipped away at Bonds testimony, undercutting key points of the governments argument, even before cross-examining the governments star witness.

Indeed, Friday was a rough day for Assistant District Attorney David Deakin.

The morning began with a cross-examination of Michael Sprinsky, McCarthys family friend. He had previously testified that while visiting the Maxwell St. home, both Bond and McCarthy were harsh with Bella. McCarthy, he claimed, locked the girl in a closet, and raved that she had been taken over by demons. On Friday Sprinsky was in tears, explaining how McCarthy had supported him through his mothers cancer, and his struggles with addiction. He used to help me, said Sprinsky, looking at McCarthy, tenderly, from the stand.

Then McCarthys brother, Joseph McCarthy Jr., took the standagain, as a government witness. McCarthy Jr. conjured tender images of the child: Bella said Up, please! when she wanted to be held. McCarthy Jr. broke down in tears recalling an incident when his father had orchestrated for Bella to meet a man in a rabbit suit, She was thrilled the Easter Bunny knew her name.

But McCarthy Jr. momentarily tripped up the even-keeled prosecutor, when asked about his brothers car, a gray Chevy Cavalier passed down through the family.

This is the car the government claims McCarthy drove to the shore of South Boston, with Bellas body in the back seat, in a duffle bag, her legs sticking out, and Bond in the front. Bonds story is that McCarthy hit her in the head and knocked her out, after she saw her daughters legs and started screaming. Deakin says that transmissions made between McCarthys phone and a nearby cell phone tower confirm he made the ride.

On the stand today, Joseph McCarthy Jr., said that his brother didnt get the car fixed and fit for the road until July 2015after Bellas body was found.

The other piece of evidence seemingly implicating McCarthyproof the government has used to argue that McCarthy was the mastermind behind the horrific crimeare a set of weights. They were found wrapped up in the black plastic trash bag along with Bellas body and a fleece zebra-print blanket, and they came from McCarthys fathers plumbing office. Its an office, Deakin made clear in his direct testimony of Joseph McCarthy Jr., that Bond does not have keys to.

But the governments efforts to link the weights to McCarthy alone were complicated on cross-examination when defense attorney Jonathan Shapiro asked Joseph McCarthy Jr. about the time he helped his brother move into the apartment with Bond.

McCarthy Jr. said he lifted his brothers duffel bag out of his car. When I pulled the duffel bag it dropped heavily, said McCarthy Jr., adding that Michael McCarthy told him that he had packed weights, from the plumbing office, so she could use them to exercise. She had recently had stomach surgery, and she was using them to recover.

Deakin, the Assistant District Attorney, did not object. Though later, he grew frustrated with Joseph McCarthy Jr. during the recross, when he asked him about his brothers thoughts on the supernatural.

Does your brother believe in bad spirits? Deakin asked.

Yes and no, said McCarthy Jr.

Later, McCarthy Jr. admitted that hed previously told a grand jury, I think [Michael] does [believe in bad spirits]. He added that he knew his brother researched Satanism.

As for Bonds testimony, Deakin seemed to be trying to step out in front of her potential credibility problems.

The jury learned today about Bonds drug problem, which escalated from marijuana, to cocaine, to crack to heroin. The McCarthy brothers share an opioid addiction as well, which Joseph McCarthy admitted on the stand. (Shapiro has admitted his client is a drug user as well.) The three of them used to rotatewhile one would use heroin in the bathroom, the others would mind Bella, according to Bond.

Deakin also walked Bond through her extensive criminal record, which includes convictions for drug crimes and prostitution, and her life on the street. Deakin had Bond tell the jury what happened with her other children: the son who got taken away for her by the Department of Children and Families for risk of neglect and physical abuse; the twins who did not survive; and her daughter who got taken away, too.

On the stand today, Bond told for the first time the story of how she met Bellas father, Joseph Amoroso. She was outside a 7-Eleven, and thought he looked cute, so she asked him for some change. They hit it off, went to smoke crack, and started living with each other right away, eventually pairing up to live in a tent in Occupy Boston. His mother and stepfather joined them at Occupy shortly after that.

The jury learned of Bonds attempts to move out of tent when she learned she was pregnant. How she was arrested on prior charges, and how Amoroso stopped writing to her in jail. Bond explained how she raised Bella in a shelter until she got an apartment, via public housing, and lived on disability benefits. She explained how she sold her PTSD and anxiety medication for cash, for things for Bella, and for herself too. The jury learned how she first met McCarthy in 2014 outside a CVS, after filling her prescription, and gave McCarthy pills. Bella was with her, in her stroller. Bella liked McCarthys Pomeranian, Bailey.

McCarthy didnt text her until a year later, looking for pills, in February 2015. Not wanting to take Bella and the stroller out in the snow, Bond invited McCarthy over, told him he could pick up the drugs at her home. After an intense conversation about astrology, reiki, and conspiracy theories about government brainwashing, which Bond said McCarthy had read on Info Wars, he spent the night. He ended up staying until September.

Bond told her account of her daughters murder. She explained how McCarthy wanted her to be stricter with her daughterbut that, except for an incident where he put Bella in the closet for being fresh, he had otherwise been good with the toddler.

She said she and McCarthy were watching a moviepre-recorded, since McCarthy allegedly made her cancel cable due to a government brainwashing conspiracywhen Bella got out of bed. Ill go tell her to lay down, Bond says McCarthy told her. Five minutes later, she went to check on them. She saw through the crack in the door the light was on. She opened it and says she walked into a murder scene.

What night was that exactly? Bond says she isnt sure. She was a stay-at-home mother, didnt pay too much attention to time, and the next few hoursday, days? she isnt surewere a blur of horror, heroin, and grief, interrupted only when McCarthy told her to put her shoes on.

It was dark, and she says McCarthy knocked her out, though she recognized she was in South Boston when she came to. Shed taken the wrong bus there once.

When they came home, she says she lay down on the bed, and McCarthy joined her. He was right there next to me, I felt pretty trapped, said Bond.

The prosecution will likely ask more questions about how she was trapped and why Bond didnt tell anyone Bella was dead until months later. Deakin already asked about how McCarthy had her cancel her phone line. In a pretrial hearing, the judge ruled that testimony about Bond believing McCarthy had supernatural powers is admissible in court.

The men and women of the 15-person jury panel are likely going into the weekend feeling pretty trapped, too. Either they take Bond at her wordor they accept that Bellas real killer could be about to walk free.

watch Infowars fire back after Portugal. The Man mocks them in music video – Brooklyn Vegan (blog)

Earlier this month, Portugal. The Man released a video for Feel It Still, which features a man burning a newspaper called Info Wars. Thats of course the same name as Infowars website, the same site that (like Breitbart) has been known to fuel Donald Trumps base-less claims. Infowars found out about the video, and published an article about it that refers to Portugal. The Man as Pro-Soros Rockers and communists. Heres an excerpt from their article:

The direct attack on Infowars is made all the more obvious by the featured thumbnail image for the video.

It doesnt end there though. Infowars permanently angry leader Alex Jones discussed Portugal. The Man again on his show:

Watch:

For a preview of Trump’s address to Congress, read Infowars. Really. – Washington Post

Alex Jones was a powerful underground voice for the alternative conservative media, but he became a more mainstream figure in December 2015, when Donald Trump, then a Republican presidential candidate, spent 30 minutes on Jones’s radio program, “Info Wars.” (Erin Patrick O’Connor,Manuel Roig-Franzia/The Washington Post)

Infowars, a website that traffics in conspiracy theories, claimedMonday to have gotten its hands on an outline of President Trumps upcoming address to Congress. Youre forgiven for being skeptical. After all, this is the site that reported the news that Hillary Clinton is a child murderer. (Fact check: She is not.)

It appears, however, that someone in the White House really did provide a preview of Trumps speech to Infowars. After the website posted a list of the presidents talking points, White House press secretary Sean Spicer read many of the same points almost verbatim, in some cases during his daily media briefing.

A transcript of Spicers remarks is below. We have used Genius annotations to show how closely what Spicer said aligns with what Infowars reported. To view an annotation, click on the highlighted text.

The key takeaway here is that there is some kind of information flow from the White House to Infowars, which might be shocking, except that Trump told Infowars founder Alex Jones in a radio interview during the Republican primary that his reputation is amazing.

[Infowars is behind President Trumps idea that the media is covering up terrorist attacks]

Tomorrow, the president will deliver his first address to both houses of Congress. In his speech, the president will lay out an optimistic vision for the country, crossing traditional lines of race, party, socioeconomic status.

As I said before, the theme will be the renewal of the American spirit. He will ask Americans of all backgrounds to come together in service of a stronger and brighter future for our nation. In addition to laying out the concrete steps the president has already taken to make the American dream possible for all of our people, he will talk about the bold agenda he wants to work with Congress.

This includes:

You can expect to see a speech grounded firmly in solving real-world problems for every American. How can we make sure that every American who needs a better job get one? How can we get kids who are trapped in failing schools into better ones? How we can keep gangs and drug violence out of our neighborhoods and communities.

The president will address the Americans who have been waiting for help from their leaders for too long and let them know that help is finally on the way.

She said she and McCarthy were watching a moviepre-recorded, since McCarthy allegedly made her cancel cable due to a government brainwashing conspiracywhen Bella got out of bed. Ill go tell her to lay down, Bond says McCarthy told her. Five minutes later, she went to check on them. She saw through the crack in the door the light was on. She opened it and says she walked into a murder scene. What night was that exactly? Bond says she isnt sure. She was a stay-at-home mother, didnt pay too much attention to time, and the next few hoursday, days? she isnt surewere a blur of horror, heroin, and grief, interrupted only when McCarthy told her to put her shoes on. It was dark, and she says McCarthy knocked her out, though she recognized she was in South Boston when she came to. Shed taken the wrong bus there once. When they came home, she says she lay down on the bed, and McCarthy joined her. He was right there next to me, I felt pretty trapped, said Bond. The prosecution will likely ask more questions about how she was trapped and why Bond didnt tell anyone Bella was dead until months later. Deakin already asked about how McCarthy had her cancel her phone line. In a pretrial hearing, the judge ruled that testimony about Bond believing McCarthy had supernatural powers is admissible in court. The men and women of the 15-person jury panel are likely going into the weekend feeling pretty trapped, too. Either they take Bond at her wordor they accept that Bellas real killer could be about to walk free.

watch Infowars fire back after Portugal. The Man mocks them in music video – Brooklyn Vegan (blog)

Earlier this month, Portugal. The Man released a video for Feel It Still, which features a man burning a newspaper called Info Wars. Thats of course the same name as Infowars website, the same site that (like Breitbart) has been known to fuel Donald Trumps base-less claims. Infowars found out about the video, and published an article about it that refers to Portugal. The Man as Pro-Soros Rockers and communists. Heres an excerpt from their article: The direct attack on Infowars is made all the more obvious by the featured thumbnail image for the video. It doesnt end there though. Infowars permanently angry leader Alex Jones discussed Portugal. The Man again on his show: Watch: Portugal. The Mans tour brings them to NYC for two Terminal 5 shows in June. The first is sold out but the second is still on sale. All dates here.

For a preview of Trump’s address to Congress, read Infowars. Really. – Washington Post

Alex Jones was a powerful underground voice for the alternative conservative media, but he became a more mainstream figure in December 2015, when Donald Trump, then a Republican presidential candidate, spent 30 minutes on Jones’s radio program, “Info Wars.” (Erin Patrick O’Connor,Manuel Roig-Franzia/The Washington Post) Infowars, a website that traffics in conspiracy theories, claimedMonday to have gotten its hands on an outline of President Trumps upcoming address to Congress. Youre forgiven for being skeptical. After all, this is the site that reported the news that Hillary Clinton is a child murderer. (Fact check: She is not.) It appears, however, that someone in the White House really did provide a preview of Trumps speech to Infowars. After the website posted a list of the presidents talking points, White House press secretary Sean Spicer read many of the same points almost verbatim, in some cases during his daily media briefing. A transcript of Spicers remarks is below. We have used Genius annotations to show how closely what Spicer said aligns with what Infowars reported. To view an annotation, click on the highlighted text. The key takeaway here is that there is some kind of information flow from the White House to Infowars, which might be shocking, except that Trump told Infowars founder Alex Jones in a radio interview during the Republican primary that his reputation is amazing. [Infowars is behind President Trumps idea that the media is covering up terrorist attacks] Tomorrow, the president will deliver his first address to both houses of Congress. In his speech, the president will lay out an optimistic vision for the country, crossing traditional lines of race, party, socioeconomic status. As I said before, the theme will be the renewal of the American spirit. He will ask Americans of all backgrounds to come together in service of a stronger and brighter future for our nation. In addition to laying out the concrete steps the president has already taken to make the American dream possible for all of our people, he will talk about the bold agenda he wants to work with Congress. This includes: You can expect to see a speech grounded firmly in solving real-world problems for every American. How can we make sure that every American who needs a better job get one? How can we get kids who are trapped in failing schools into better ones? How we can keep gangs and drug violence out of our neighborhoods and communities. The president will address the Americans who have been waiting for help from their leaders for too long and let them know that help is finally on the way.
