Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, January 25, 2018

The mysterious deaths of a wealthy Canadian couple have inexplicably become part of American conspiracy theories involving the Clinton Foundation and even Pizzagate. Barry and Honey Sherman's bodies were found in their Toronto mansion on Dec. 15, 2017, by a real estate agent. The police deemed the deaths "suspicious" and are still investigating. Private investigators hired by the family say they were murdered by a team of killers, according to reports by the Toronto Star and CBC. Their deaths led to an outpouring of sympathy from many prominent Canadians, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who attended the couple's funeral in December. Barry Sherman was the founder of Apotex, Canada's largest generic drug maker.

So what does their murder have to do with the Clintons? Nothing, according to current information from police and the family's own investigators. But a conspiracy theory is being spun thanks to the fact that Apotex previously donated medicine to aid initiatives linked with the Clinton Foundation in Haiti and elsewhere. Those same relief projects included many other companies.

This week, the notoriously unreliable right-wing blog the Gateway Pundit published a post heavily implying the Shermans had been murdered due to their work with the Clinton Foundation.

Although there had been blog posts and social media chatter about the latest alleged victims of the Clinton murder spree before then, the Gateway Pundit post gave the claim its widest exposure yet. The post has received tens of thousands of Facebook engagements since it was published on Jan. 21.

The conspiracy theory about a Clinton connection to the deaths has now spread to numerous other right-wing blogs, websites, and social media accounts, some of which routinely promote conspiracy theories.

If he's so concerned with fake news, why doesn't Trump complain about real fake news like this that is being pushed by many of his supporters? Oh, yeah, right: because it helps him.

It's not news when the Clintons are accused of murder when they are in no way connected, it is news when they aren't. Realize the truth. Hillary Clinton tried to put together a universal healthcare plan for America. She has been the enemy of some rich and powerful people ever since, Bill too since he was her husband and President at the time.

It wouldn't be the first time someone got the Vince Foster treatment from the Clinton's.

Jeff, are you losing your mind? It's Clintons, not Clinton's.

"someone got the Vince Foster treatment from the Clinton's."

Um, don't you mean the opposite?

The Clintons got the Vince Foster treatment from the kind, kind hearts of the Republicans. You know, the same folks who gave them the Benghazi treatment, the Clinton Foundation treatment, and the Uranium One treatment.

Of course, all the conclusions were the same: Republican-led investigations went nowhere.

Just to clarify, #4 was a joke.

I remember the "Circle of Death" documentary in the 1990s. Thought it was absurd to try to pin all those deaths on them then, and it's absurd now. I know crap when I see it, and have consistently called it out whether it was against them, Bush, Obama or Trump.

I think that whole "circle of death" nonsense started with the Kennedys.

Jeff, why do you post the opposite of what you really mean?

How are we supposed to know what you really mean? There is no humor or joke in your ambiguity.

Perhaps you might consider simply putting (***JOKE***) or "JK" at the end of your 'joke' posts.
