    Erin Scott-Pool/Getty Images. Newly-minted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), a believer of the QAnon conspiracy theory, is lashing out following reporting on her past comments in which she expressed her belief that the Parkland and Sandy Hook shootings were staged — as was 9/11. The progressive watchdog site Media Matters for America uncovered old Facebook posts from Greene touting her belief that 9/11 was an inside job, and that the Sandy Hook and Parkland shootings were false flags. In a Thursday tweet, the Georgia representative lashed out at Media Matters. “Communists bloggers like @mmfa run the same playbook of lies and smears on people they feel threatened by,” Greene wrote. “Produce fake news, spread it all around, then tag all fake news stories about their victim in all future stories. Guess what? Nobody cares about your BS.” Communists bloggers like @mmfa run the same playbook of lies and smears on...

    St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson (D) revealed this week that she and husband have relocated over repeated protests outside of their residence. In a Wednesday statement to St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Krewson said “we have not lived at home for 2 months” due to demonstrations in July and August. “We did it to deescalate the situation, to save police resources, and, importantly, because our neighbors were being disturbed and threatened.” “I ran for this job — my neighbors did not,” she told the newspaper. The revelation comes as ongoing protests and violent unrest in downtown Portland and outside Mayor Ted Wheeler’s (D) upscale condo building have forced him to move. The demonstrations that began late Monday and extended into Tuesday fell on Wheeler’s 58th birthday and featured shiny golden alphabet balloons that protesters used to spell out an expletive. They sang on the street outside the mayor’s building, some wearing party hats, and the fire was...

    A Missouri couple under fire for brandishing guns in the front yard of their home as protesters passed told police the group broke a gate to get onto the private street, and the pair say they only retrieved their firearms when they spotted “multiple” people who were already armed, department records show. Al Watkins, an attorney for Mark McCloskey, 63, and his 61-year-old wife, Patricia, said the protest was largely peaceful and the pair did not bring their guns outside of the home until two men in particular, both of whom were white, started menacing them. The McCloskeys, he said, were hesitant to come forward with the full story out of fear that they would "disparage the importance of Black Lives Matter." "At the time, their fear was, these people, two in particular, that were marching along with the Black Lives Matter protest participants – all peaceful.
