This would be hilarious if it was not so sad…not to mention scary! And how many conspiracy “theories” have turned out to be conspiracy fact? Are the fire chiefs from New York conspiracy theorists because they believe pre placed bombs were placed in the WTC buildings? Is it a conspiracy theory that some very well and high placed FBI personnel wanted a different outcome in the 2016 election and worked to “revise” who sits in the White House? I wonder which list (how many?) I am on?

Exclusive: FBI Document Warns Conspiracy Theories Are A New Domestic Terrorism Threat
August 1, 2019

The FBI for the first time has identified fringe conspiracy theories as a domestic terrorist threat, according to a previously unpublicized document obtained by Yahoo News. (Read the document below.)

The FBI intelligence bulletin from the bureau’s Phoenix field office, dated May 30, 2019, describes “conspiracy theory-driven domestic extremists,” as a growing threat, and notes that it is the first such report to do so. It lists a number of arrests, including some that haven’t been publicized, related to violent incidents motivated by fringe beliefs.

The document specifically mentions QAnon, a shadowy network that believes in a deep state conspiracy against President Trump, and Pizzagate, the theory that a pedophile ring including Clinton associates was being run out of the basement of a Washington, D.C., pizza restaurant (which didn’t actually have a basement).

People who retired after spending decades working for department store Sears came together early in 2019 to protest the company’s plan to terminate their life insurance as part of its bankruptcy, according to Bloomberg.

And it seems as though they have good reason to. Benefits that once would have been worth as much as tens of thousands of dollars have been priced at just $135 by the Sears estate in a proposal to its former employees.

It’s another blow in a long line of disasters for Sears employees who have worked for – or are still working for – the company through its transition into bankruptcy. Sears filed for bankruptcy last year and sold its stores and most of its assets to the Eddie Lampert-owned ESL Investments, Inc. in the beginning of this year.

The Sears estate, responsible for settling old debts, was left behind.
