Category Archives: Trump Conspiracy Counter
I don’t know how I fell behind on this seeing I’m stuck in home, but it’s been a busy, crazy month for conspiracy in general (see my last several “Tea’s Weird Week” columns). I’m going to catch the counter up through April 15 today and will finish catching up a week from today. Wheeew. Well, in the middle of a pandemic, Trump is still retweeting members of QAnon and far right outlets. Here we go!
178.-186.) April 3: Retweets from John Solomon and his site justthenews.com. If you think it’s unlikely Trump follows a site that actually reports “just the news,” you’re right. Solomon helped spread Ukranian conspiracy theories: https://www.mediaite.com/news/john-solomon-who-helped-spread-conspiracy-theories-about-ukraine-launching-a-site-devoted-to-facts/
187.) April 3: Retweets Brandon Straka, a former liberal who leads a campaign called #WalkAway, who once warmed up a Trump rally and ended his speech with QAnon slogan “where we go one, we go all.”
188-191.) April 4: I enjoy Joe Rogan as much as the next person, he’s an entertaining interviewer. He’s also promoted conspiracy. Trump flouted Rogan’s recent comment that he’d rather vote for Trump than Biden, retweeting the endorsement 4 times via sources like One America News and The Daily Wire.
192.) April 5: One point here for retweeting gas mask fetishist Matt Gaetz’s retweet of a Breitbart article. Breitbart is a conspiracy site.
193-195.) April 10: Trump retweets three random QAnon supporters in a row: Zeus (American flag, 3 stars) No Collusion, No Obstruction, who shared a Breitbart article and included the hastags #QAnon #QAnon2018 #QAnon2020 #DemocratsHateAmerica right in the post! He also retweeted Red Lily, who had #wwg1wga in her bio and TrumpsSedonaGirl who has several QAnon retweets.
196-197.) April 10: Retweets from fequent #TrumpConspiracyCounter guest Gregg Jarrett, author of Witch Hunt and The Russia Hoax.
198.) April 10: Retweet from frequent #TrumpConspiracyCounter guest Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch.
199.)April 11: I’m counting this Trump tweet. Saying anonymous sources don’t exist is conspiracy.
When the Failing New York Times or Amazon Washington Post writes a story saying “unnamed sources said”, or any such phrase where a person’s name is not used, don’t believe them. Most of these unnamed sources don’t exist. They are made up to defame & disparage. They have no “source”..Does anyone ever notice how few quotes from an actual person are given nowadays by the Lamestream Media. Very seldom. The unnamed or anonymous sources are almost always FAKE NEWS.
200.) April 11: Another one from John Solomon of justthenews.com.
201.) April 12, Easter: Retweet of DeAnna Lorraine, who was one of the QAnon candidates running for Congress (she suspended her campaign after getting less than 2% of the primary vote) that included a #FireFauci hashtag. Read my Tea’s Weird Week column from last week for more: “Dr. Fauci vs Trump’s Q Army.”

“Having just returned from the grocery store during an official pandemic, I’m reminded to highly recommend Apocalypse Any Day Now, from Tea Krulos, who went way down the doomsday prepper rabbit hole. Fun and unfortunately highly relevant. Do it.” — Brent Gohde, Cedar Block/ Science Strikes Back
