Things continue to get crazier and crazier.
Item: RIP Mike Adams:
According to the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, Mike Adams was found dead at his residence today.
Deputies responded to a wellness check at Adams’ home address and found him deceased. NHCSO is investigating the death, but has not released any additional information, and could not confirm cause of death or if foul play was suspected.
The longtime professor of criminology and sociology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) was set to retire next week as part of a $500,000 settlement.
The settlement came as Adams was facing growing criticism for his social media posts and UNCW, in particular Chancellor Jose V. Sartarelli, was under increasing pressure to terminate his employment. Several petitions with around 85,000 total signatures called for his termination, and letters from his colleagues and fellow criminologists denounced his actions and called for his firing.
Due to Adams’ tenured status, and his previous legal victory over UNCW (which cost the UNC system roughly $700,000), the university opted for a negotiated exit.
Mike was a good writer and a conservative who actually lived by his principles. It’s too soon to say that his death is suspicious, since no details have been provided yet, but there is absolutely no way I would buy the idea that he committed suicide one week before retiring with half a million dollars.
Item: Media figureheads are claiming there will be no election in November:
MSNBC’s John Heilemann said that the deployment of federal agents into crime-ridden, Democratic-run cities was a “trial run” for Trump to steal the 2020 election. He’s going to seize this contest by force supposedly.
What do they know, what are they hearing, that would lead them to this conclusion? And if they know better, but are pushing a false narrative anyhow, what benefit is it to them?
Item: Facebook to ban Qanon:
The New York Times reports that two Facebook employees, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that Facebook will be taking similar steps to those taken by Twitter in order to limit the reach of QAnon content and the that it will be announcing its plans next month. The employees added that Facebook has been coordinating with Twitter and other social media companies when formulating its plans to purge QAnon content.
They’re certainly going to a lot of trouble for something that is supposed to be nothing more than a LARP.
