U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s Swedish Massacre Hoax: Trump Fake News In Action?

Given his open mistrust of the “dishonest mainstream media”, is Trump’s Swedish Massacre Hoax a sure sign that he’s already out of touch with reality? 

By: Ringo Bones

With the whole world still reeling after Kellyanne Conway’s Bowling Green Massacre Hoax, people who are already questioning the sanity of President Trump may had earned credence of their claims with the recent “Swedish Massacre” tirade on Twitter as Trump tries to justify his anti-immigrant stance. The Swedish Massacre Hoax was apparently invented by Trump during a campaign-style rally of his supporters in an aircraft hangar in Melbourne, Florida. When former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt Tweeted: “Sweden? Terror attack? What has he been smoking? Questions abound.” It wasn’t long that everyone realized that Trump’s “Swedish Massacre Hoax” is about as real as his presidency. 

President Trump’s bizarre nonexistent terror attack on Swedish soil may have been due to his rejection of other more reliable news media in preference to a conservative far-right news channel called Fox News, where the night before Trump’s Melbourne, Florida rally, he was watching a documentary made by a right-wing demagogue claiming that Swedish crime rates are on the rise because of the Swedish government relaxing its restrictions in accepting Syrian war refugees in 2015. But the truth is crime rates across Sweden had been in decline since 2005. Trump’s war on the “dishonest media” has unforeseen consequences indeed. By often referring to CNN and the BBC, amongst others, as “fake news”, it seems Trump has apparently lost all contact with reality this time.

Kellyanne Conway’s Bowling Green Massacre Hoax: The Massacre That Never Was?

Given that it forms the bulk of her raison d’être of President Donald Trump’s so-called “Travel Ban”, is Kellyanne Conway’s Bowling Green Massacre Hoax a triumph of President Trump’s obsession with so-called “Alternative Facts”?

By: Ringo Bones 

Looks like U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s obsession with so-called “Alternative Facts” had backfired when her former campaign manager and current Counselor Kellyanne Conway during a press interview defending his proposed “Travel Ban” – which is widely viewed as the notorious “Muslim Ban” – managed to create the so-called “Bowling Green Massacre Hoax”, which allegedly, according to Kellyanne Conway, is a result of a “slip-of-the-tongue”. Despite of this press interview faux-pas, is Kellyanne Conway’s Bowling Green Massacre Hoax has a kernel of truth contained in it? 

Various small-town mom and pop bread-and-breakfast establishments in the United States deep-south region had been quick to exploit the “tourism potential” of Kellyanne Conway’s so-called Bowling Green Massacre incident, the truth is the origin of the now famous “journalistic hoax of 2017” that have since gone viral has a rather mundane origin. During Kellyanne Conway’s press interview in defense of U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s notorious “Muslim Ban”, Conway cites an incident of a supposed massacre perpetrated by a group of “radicalized Muslim-Americans” that happened in Bowling Green, Kentucky. 

But the true origin of Kellyanne Conway’s “Bowling Green Massacre Hoax” was the 2013 Justice Department announcing that it has sentenced two Iraqi citizens living in Bowling Green, Kentucky to federal prison after they confessed to attacking U.S. soldiers in Iraq and assisting Al Qaeda in Iraq by sending money and weapons. In truth, the so-called bloody massacre that Kellyanne Conway cited as an example to defend U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s notorious “Travel Ban” during a press conference actually never happened. Unfortunately, the truth (or was it U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s so-called “Alternative Facts”?) is still powerless to stop unscrupulous tour operators exploiting Kellyanne Conway’s Bowling Green Massacre Hoax even if their town is only coincidentally named Bowling Green - and not Bowling Green, Kentucky – for monetary gain. In truth, Kellyanne Conway’s “Bowling Green Massacre” is about as real as Gene Roddenberry’s Sino-Indian War.

Donald J. Trump: America’s First Paedophile President?

Even though the then under-age victim had recently withdrawn her legal claim, is there still enough evidence for Donald J. Trump to be labeled as America’s first paedophile president?

By: Ringo Bones 

He may have won the presidency of the United States in the most unpopular way possible – i.e. via the Electoral College – and his campaign promises are reminiscent to that of Adolf Hitler, billionaire reality show proprietor Donald J. Trump could soon claim to fame another title – as America’s first pedophile president by allegedly raping a 13-year old girl back in 1994. Even though the victim may have withdrawn her legal claim, many have argued that the evidence is more credible in comparison to Donald J. Trump’s “birther” claim that outgoing US President Barack Obama is born in Kenya rather than a natural-born US citizen. 

Donald J. Trump’s then 13-year-old victim, named Katie Johnson, has her shocking allegations first emerged in a lawsuit filed in California back in April 2016. Katie Johnson claimed she was lured to a sex party hosted by notorious billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein where she was forced into rough role-play sex with Donald J. Trump – now the president elect of the United States. Katie Johnson said she was just 13 when she met Trump after leaving her home in Oklahoma in 1994 to pursue a modeling career in New York. Rumor has it that Katie Johnson recently withdrew her legal claim that Trump raped her because she was intimidated by Trump’s goons and high-priced legal team as opposed to a lack of evidence. 

Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign team has called the allegations despicable by being filed so close to the 2016 US Presidential Elections. But given Trump’s rather unpopular victory, the social media world is ablaze with unflattering Trump memes – i.e. “Donald J. Trump as America’s first paedophile president” and “Donald J. Trump’s scientific name as Pedophilius Americanus” with regards to this particular case. Unfortunately for Trump – this is not the only sex scandal that’s out there.

Will Hillary Clinton Reveal Secret UFO Files If Elected?

While the story has been around since the beginning of 2016, will Hillary Clinton reveal secret UFO files once elected to the White House?

By: Ringo Bones 

Since the end of World War II, there has long been an air of conspiracy surrounding theories of alien / extraterrestrial life, and back in April 8, 2016, the head of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign – John Podesta said it’s time to do away with the secrecy. While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Clinton herself pledged to “get to the bottom” of whether rumors of US contact with extraterrestrial life were true. 

Ever since the Roswell Incident of 1947, the US government having established secret contact with extraterrestrial life and/or having access to their advanced technology have become an ever growing urban legend that have fueled many a science fiction narrative that’s still going strong until this very day. But it was probably during the Bill Clinton presidency of the 1990s that conspiracy theorists of every persuasion got convinced that there might be something to this Area 51 / Majestic 12 brouhaha – not just because the runaway success of Chris Carter’s The X-Files TV series or Independence Day and Men In Black movies but also that 1995 era “official revelation” that the “Roswell UFO Crash” was actually a secret US government program called Project Mogul which is all about balloon-born sensors to listen for secret Soviet era clandestine nuclear weapons testing. Given the Clinton Administration era subterfuge, why is it that US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s promise to reveal secret UFO files will be different this time? 

Unbeknown to most conspiracy buffs, it was during the first term of Bill Clinton’s presidency – back when Hillary Clinton was still the First Lady – that the Clinton administration managed to do the near impossible – i.e. managed to get an “environmental audit” of Area 51 – the famed top secret U.S. Air Force Groom Lake, Nevada facility rumored to house crashed remains of advanced extraterrestrial craft secured by the US government since the Roswell Incident of 1947. Thanks to this move by then US President Bill Clinton the top brass of Area 51 finally stopped using ozone depleting chemicals in the maintenance of their planes and other assets in favor of more ozone friendly options by the mid 1990s. If her husband managed to do that, then there’s a fighting chance that Hillary Clinton’s UFO revelations might be more substantial to their mid 1990s era counterparts – unless of course if you prefer Donald Trump style revelations of pulling stuff out of his own ass.

Could The Panama Papers Leak Ignite “Class Warfare”?

Even though it merely reiterates the sentiment harbored by the rest of us since Occupy Wall Street a few years ago, but could the “Panama Papers Leak” ignite full-blown global class warfare?

By: Ringo Bones 

Ever since the Occupy Wall Street Movement went global a few years ago, it revealed in the most unflattering way on how most of the world’s richest 1-percent don’t give a “proverbial rat’s ass” to the rest of us. While the recent 11.5 million document file leak from the world’s fourth largest offshore law firm – the Panama based Mossack Fonseca – only reiterates the self-evident truths revealed since then. But given the damning revelations of the 11.5 million leaked files from Mossack Fonseca a few days ago – more damning than that of the Edward Snowden revelations – could the “Panama Papers leak” be the tipping point in igniting so-called global class warfare? 

The records were first obtained from an anonymous source by the German newspaper Sϋddeutsche Zeitung, which shared them with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ). The ICIJ then shared them with a large network of international partners – including the Guardian and the BBC. The documents show the myriad ways in which the rich can exploit secretive offshore tax regimes. Twelve national leaders are among the 143 politicians, their families and close associates from around the world known to have been using offshore tax havens. Ever since the news about the Panama Papers Leak went global, Baidu – The People’s Republic of China’s equivalent of Google and the only search engine authorized by the monolithic communist party to operate in Mainland China – had been blocking the story for frat that it may be just a “Western Plot” against the Beijing Communist Party.

A 2-billion US dollar trail leads all the way to Russian strongman Vladimir Putin via the Russian president’s best friend – a cellist named Sergei Roldugin – is at the center of a scheme in which money from the Russian state banks is hidden offshore. Some of it ends up in a ski resort where in 2013 Putin’s daughter Katerina got married. And despite the legality of the leaked documents, Russia’s official news agency had dismissed the revelations as a “Western plot” against Vladimir Putin. 

Among the other national leaders revealed by the Panama Papers Leak to have offshore wealth are Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, ex-interim prime minister and former vice-president of Iraq Ayad Alawi, president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, Alaa Mubarak – son of Egypt’s former president and the Prime Minister of Iceland, Sigmundur Davíỗ Gunnlsughsson. And what irked the international community most is on how Mossack Fonseca helped governments that are under imposed economic sanctions by the UN Security Council to still do business with impunity – like North Korea and Russia since the unlawful Donetsk Region annexation by the Putin regime.    

Mossack Fonseca is a Panama-based law firm whose services include incorporating companies in offshore jurisdictions such as the British Virgin Islands. It administers offshore firms for a yearly fee. Other services include wealth management. The firm is Panamanian but runs a worldwide operation. Its website boasts of a global network with 600 people working in 42 countries. It has franchises around the world, where separately owned affiliates sign up new customers and have exclusive rights to use its brand. Mossack Fonseca operates in tax havens including Switzerland, Cyprus and British Virgin Islands and in the British crown dependencies of Guernsey, Jersey and the Isle of Man.
