June 20, 2016 by legitgov

Jo Cox False Flag Theories Swirl on Twitter as Brexit Vote Looms | 16 June 2016 | The timing of the cold-blooded murder of liberal British lawmaker Jo Cox, as she was going to a meeting with constituents Thursday, has led to a flurry of social-media chatter claiming Cox's killing was plotted by forces seeking to sway next week's referendum in favor of Britain remaining in the European Union. Cox was stabbed and shot, allegedly by a right-wing loner. But some supporters of a British exit from the EU are spreading a conspiracy theory that the suspect, identified as Thomas Mair, is a patsy of pro-EU forces, and that Cox's murder is a "false flag" aimed at portraying the British right as unhinged and dangerous.

Skeptics accuse Orlando shooting victim of being a crisis actor paid to pretend she was injured - and claim the attack never happened --'Conspiracy' theorists accuse Patience Carter of being a crisis actor pretending to have been inside at the time of the shooting | 19 June 2016 | A 20-year-old woman who survived the Orlando shooting with a gunshot wound to the leg hit out at skeptics who accused her of making up her survival story in 'bizarre conspiracy' theories. Patience Carter, a Fox 29 intern from Philadelphia, was visiting Orlando for the first time when she got caught in the Pulse nightclub attack...But as Carter told how she survived the attack, some accused her online of being an actor paid to pretend she had been a victim of the ordeal. A now-defunct [aka pulled due to censorship] YouTube video claimed she was a 'crisis actor', which conspiracy theorists claim is a person hired by the media or by government bodies to pretend they survived crimes such as mass shootings. 'This is faked. This is staged. They are using actors. There is no doubt about it. This is 100 percent bull***t,' a narrator said in the video, which included a montage of news clips about Carter according to the New York Daily News. [For more on crisis actors, see: National Hoax Awards - Best Crisis Actor from 2015 - a classic, but the video needs to be updated, post-Orlando.]

Homeland Security seeks $100million to replace terms 'Muslim Americans' and 'the Muslim world' with 'American Muslims' and 'Muslim communities' --DHS also pushes to ban the words 'Sharia law' and 'jihad' [Right. The US doesn't want to ban Sharia law and jihad - just the words!] | 17 June 2016 | The Department of Homeland Security thinks censorship will help stop American millennials from becoming drawn to groups like ISIS. DHS's Advisory Council has released a report, suggesting that we stop making the fight against radical Islam an 'us versus them' fight...That means doing away with Islamic terms like 'jihad' - which means holy war- and 'Sharia law,' which are rules that govern ways of life in Muslim governments. The department also says we should stop using the term 'Muslim Americans' and 'the Muslim world', and replace them with 'American Muslims' and 'Muslim communities'. The department is asking that $100million be used to fund the effort, which will go towards paying experts and creating social media programs and technology to steer millennials away from terrorist recruiters. [This nugget is a contender for the most outrageous summary I've ever posted...]

NATO plans for Afghan war through 2020 | 15 June 2016 | The war in on Afghanistan -- America's longest conflict -- will grind on for at least another four years as NATO allies are prepared to commit $5 billion through 2020 to train, equip and pay Afghan security forces, according to a senior NATO diplomat.

The new rules allow U.S. forces to advise regular Afghan combat units and to call in airstrikes...The new expanded authorities will give U.S. commanders in Afghanistan more flexibility, by allowing them to identify and get pre-approval for air targets in advance, instead of just responding to emergencies, Gen. Mark Welsh, the Air Force chief of staff, told reporters in Washington.
