Idaho Falls Rep. Bryan Zollinger took to Facebook on Friday, re-posting a conspiracy theory suggesting that the tragic events in Charlottesville, Va., could have been an inside job orchestrated to smear President Donald Trump.
The post, written on a site called “The American Thinker,” is replete with wild, unevidenced claims couched in what-ifs.
“The conflagration in Charlottesville is beginning to feel like a set-up, perhaps weeks or months in the planning,” the author wrote.
In a comment, Zollinger called the blog post “completely plausible.”
The post suggests, at various points, that the white supremacist demonstration in Charlottesville, which resulted in brawls with counterprotestors and an apparent terrorist attack that left Heather Heyer dead and 19 others injured, may have been plotted by former President Barack Obama, billionaire George Soros, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe or Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer — or by some shadowy cabal involving them all.
And it describes both white supremacists and those who protested against them as “groups of demented racists.”
“All of them on both sides are certainly that,” the author wrote, while making an exception for Heyer, whose funeral was held Wednesday.
The post begins by reciting a claim that Obama “set up a war room in his D.C. home to plan and execute resistance to the Trump administration.” That claim, widely debunked by fact checkers but widely circulated by far-right news outlets, stems from an article in a London tabloid, which cites a single unnamed source claiming to be a friend of Obama’s. There is no further sourcing for the claim, though the claim was recently repeated by the National Enquirer using the phrase “war room.”
It then recites further claims, some with kernels of truth, others with none, to make the case that the white supremacist rally could have been staged.

 

“So were the events of Saturday the result of a despicable plan to further undermine Trump?,” the author wrote. “There was plenty of time and Charlottesville is the ‘capital of resistance.’ If it was, it was evil and deadly and the people involved need to be prosecuted. Or is this a wild conspiracy theory? Perhaps. But the pieces fit.”
“Bryan, you have to know this is crazy, right?” one commenter wrote on Zollinger’s post.
“I’m not saying it is true, but I am suggesting that it is completely plausible,” Zollinger responded, adding that “many of the protesters were Soros-funded.”
In an interview, Zollinger said he hadn’t meant to offend anyone with the post, and that on further reflection, its claims are “probably wrong.” He continued to describe the claims as “plausible,” however.
“In hindsight, maybe it was a mistake to post it,” Zollinger said. “I didn’t mean for it to ruffle any feathers.”
Zollinger represents District 33, which encompasses most of Idaho Falls. He was elected in 2016, replacing former Rep. Linden Bateman, who didn’t seek re-election. Zollinger has served one term in the House, where he became one of the founding members of the Idaho Freedom Caucus.

Clinton’s Long List of Dead Ends

BACK in October 2013, a full three years ago (a drop in the actual bucket of time, although a lifetime in terms of political treachery), this site expounded upon the horrific possibility of another Clinton Presidency. In fact, relative to the Clinton machine, it was hardly this investigative journalist’s first foray into their rancid cesspool. […]

Just before the final presidential debate, the Trump campaign may have launched something that has big implications for media — RareRare

As if Donald Trump needed another outlet to get his word out during the 2016 election, something huge aired on the Republican nominee’s official Facebook page. Right before the final presidential debate took place at UNLV in Las Vegas, Nev., Trump’s official Facebook page started live-streaming pre-debate coverage. According to BuzzFeed News, the video grabbed the…

O’bama Has a Kill List Was Christopher Stevens on it?

Other than appealing looks, I like very little about this prez…

He is so ARROGANT in his use of “EXECUTive Orders” that I think Congress needs to place SEVERE restrictions or eliminate their future use completely.

I have always felt his behavior on 9/11/12 was suspicious; the same way I felt Juniors was on 9/11/01…

RELEASE your Emails Prez, if you’ve nothing to hide, why fan a fire you want put out?

1) “there is an enormous difference between politicizing tragedy and using the levers of government to achieve that goal. Put simply, the transformation of the Benghazi attacks into a political drama now serves as one of the most dangerous precedents in American history, one whose absurdity and irrationality can be seen just by reviewing the past. This single Benghazi committee has been “investigating” the attack for longer than Congress conducted inquiries into Pearl Harbor, 9/11, Iran-Contra, Watergate and intelligence failures in Iraq.

Worse still, Congress convened 22 hearings about the 9/11 attack that killed almost 3,000 citizens working in the World Trade Center in downtown Manhattan; this week, Congress will be holding its 21st hearing about an attack that killed four people working in Libya, with many more sessions left to come. Do Republicans actually think that terrorists killing four agents of the government who willingly assumed the risks of residing in one of the most dangerous places in the world is more important than terrorists murdering 3,000 unsuspecting civilians who were working at their offices in New York City?

In fact, no previous assault on a diplomatic outpost has received this kind of relentless expression of congressional outrage. There weren’t investigations that were anything on this scale about the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Beirut in 1983 (63 killed), on the U.S. Embassy annex northeast of Beirut in 1984 (24 killed) or on the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa, Yemen, in 2008 (18 killed). Republicans didn’t believe these exact same scenarios that took place under Republican presidents merited similar zeal to dig down to some unexposed, imaginary “truth.”

Newsweek really showed their anti-conservative stripes in this article on Benghazi Hearings, comparing them to the 9/11/01 hearings (or lack thereof). At first I thought it was because they thought that the Bush regime lied and weren’t taken to task (which is my opinion), but now I believe it is because they simply want a socialist America. You know that “It Takes a Village” load of crap the Hillary’s of this world spew when they want to take your kids and indoctrinate them into their happy horseshit agenda… The one where fluoride is added to drinking water because it makes your teeth strong, and vaccines are mandatory or you can’t go to school.  The liberal agenda is disguised as freedom, but it is the opposite. They want a world where they control you the Steeple… Conservatives want free enterprise, and a strong military. However, both of these groups are corrupt and it is now time you sheeple take a stand, READ the Constitution and then hold ALL of the accountable,.
