The editor-in-chief of a NeoConservative news website viciously attacked a female reporter in the early hours of Saturday morning.

“Still better than eating Putin’s cock bacon for breakfast, you hapless harlot,” Daily Caller’s Geoff Ingersoll told Gateway Pundit’s Cassandra Fairbanks on Twitter.

“By the way, maybe cut down. You’re blowing up,” he continued.

The context of the attack was an argument between Fairbanks and Ingersoll about the recent arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The NeoCon crowd in D.C. has celebrated his arrest, alleging that he stole state secrets, demanding he be punished.

The GOP establishment still holds a grudge against Assange for exposing war crimes committed during the GOP-backed War on Terror in the Middle East. Assange’s organization also obtained and released emails to and from Hillary R. Clinton’s secret private server during her tenure as Secretary of State before the 2016 election.

Establishment Republicans like Ingersoll and Daily Caller co-founder Neil Patel apparently agree with the Jeff Bezos-owned blog Washington Post on the Assange issue. That blog is known for perpetuating the Russian “collusion” conspiracy theory and burying sexual assault allegations against prominent Democratic Party officeholders.

Many other conservatives, including Fairbanks who had spent time with Assange at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where Assange lived for almost seven years, see him as a free-speech hero for exposing the secret misdeeds of governments around the world. Most who believe in limited government have sided with Assange and claimed that his arrest poses a threat to press freedom.

Fairbanks originally made a post that was critical of The Daily Caller, which made a meme out of the images of his arrest.

“We don’t suck up to political powers, they say, as the deep states [sic] dick glides down their throat,” Fairbanks said in Tweet.

She did not mention Ingersoll, but he took offense to her original Tweet, sparking a back-and-forth which eventually led to his sexist attacks.

“You got your start as a dingleberry hanging off the ass of the Kremlin,” Ingersoll responded to Fairbanks’ original Tweet.

With this tweet the editor-in-chief of the supposedly conservative Daily Caller proves he accepts the political left’s premise that President Donald J. Trump colluded with the Russians, and that Assange played a role. That conspiracy theory has been long-debunked on this site,  and even the mainstream press was forced to reckon with its falsehood when Attorney General Willam P. Barr submitted his assessment of the Mueller report, clearing the Trump administration from wrongdoing.

Later in the exchange, Ingersoll made further misogynistic remarks about Fairbanks’ weight.

“Go for a run and take the definition of ‘neocon’ with you,” he said.

Ingersoll was unrepentant when Big League Politics reached out for comment. He blamed Fairbanks for starting the altercation with her Tweet about the Caller, despite the fact that she never attacked him personally.

“I think the back and forth started with her saying something about sucking ‘the deep states dick’ … so I figured she was accustomed to such language,” he said.

During the course of our conversation, he bizarrely asked if I would slap myself at his direction.

“If I tell you to slap yourself, will you actually do it or no?” he said.

Big League Politics reached out to Daily Caller publisher Neil Patel for comment, but he did not return our request in time for publication.

Billionaires Have Made Half a Trillion Dollars While Tens of Millions File for Unemployment

Published

on

As the number of Americans filing for unemployment approaches 40 million, America’s billionaires are cruising along without any worries.

According to a CNBC report, billionaire fortunes climbed by a total of $434 billion since the middle of March,

At the top of the list are Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg, whose respective fortunes increased by $34.6 and $25 billion, according to the Americans for Tax Fairness and the Institute for Policy Studies’ Program for Inequality. Zerohedge noted that both organizations came to this conclusion “based on Forbes data for America’s over 600 billionaires collected between March 18 and May 19.”

Tyler Durden highlighted the following stats:

Percentage-wise, Elon Musk’s wealth grew 48% to $36 billion, while Zuckerberg clocked in at 46%. Bezos’ wealth grew 31% to $147 billion. His ex-wife, MacKenzie Bezos, saw her wealth increase by roughly 33% to $48 billion. On average, American billionaires saw their net worth grow 15% during the two-month period from $2.948 trillion to $3.382 trillion.

Bezos, Bill Gates, Zuckerberg, Buffett and Larry Ellison saw their wealth increase by a total of $76 billion.

“The surge in billionaire wealth during a global pandemic underscores the grotesque nature of unequal sacrifice,” declared Chuck Collins, director of the IPS Program on Inequality and co-author of the Billionaire Bonanza 2020 report. “While millions risk their lives and livelihoods as first responders and front line workers, these billionaires benefit from an economy and tax system that is wired to funnel wealth to the top.”

However, some billionaires haven’t benefited so much:

Still, the pandemic hasn’t been kind to other billionaires – whose yacht upgrades may need to wait. Those in travel and retail have taken a beating. Ralph Lauren saw his wealth drop by $100 million to $5.6 billion, while hotelier John Pritzker has seen a $34 million drop to $2.56 billion. We know, time to get a collection going.

 As Americans experience economic uncertainty, certain business giants are clearly benefiting.The country needs to re-open in a timely manner.Failure to do so will widen this economic gulf and catalyze social unrest.
