Billionaire Bill Ackman has tweeted a wild claim on X about the attempted assassination of Donald Trump, which he then deleted less than 10 minutes later.

The investor shared a video arguing the narrative of Thomas Matthew Crooks being a 'lone gunman' is '100 percent provably false.'

The clip was created by Dr Chris Martenson, an economist who suggests the shooting was an inside job by the so-called 'Deep State'.

Martenson analyzed audio from the rally to suggest that a second shooter was operating alongside Crooks to assassinate Trump. The second shooter, he claims, was around 100ft away from Crooks' rooftop location.

He presented audio clips which he claims show that in addition to the shots fired by Crooks and that fired by the sniper who killed Crooks, there were other shots with a distinct audio signature, indicating a third shooter.

What in the world just happened?  Within the past 24 hours, Joe Biden dropped out of the presidential race, Kamala Harris became the presumptive nominee, and hordes of top Democrats publicly endorsed her.  We are finding out that lots of people apparently knew that this was going to happen on Sunday in advance.  To call all of this “orchestrated” would be a tremendous understatement.  It appears that the Democratic party machine was absolutely determined to slam the door shut on anyone that would even think of challenging Harris.  And this is the party that was attempting to claim that it would “save democracy”?

Despite weeks of crisis talks and dozens of Democrats calling for him to step down, Joe Biden’s decision to withdraw was made at the last minute.

The 81-year-old president was isolating with COVID at his $3.4 million holiday home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, when his shrinking inner circle handed him polling data showing he could no longer beat Donald Trump.

That was when they composed a letter saying it was time for him to step aside for the good of the future of the Democratic party.

Fellow ABC News personalities David Muir and Linsey Davis were set to host but now Trump wants a change in network. 

The former president continued: 'Now that Joe has, not surprisingly, has quit the race, I think the Debate, with whomever the Radical Left Democrats choose, should be held on FoxNews, rather than very biased ABC. Thank you! DJT' 

Polls are showing mixed signals for Harris, with some overall positives but potential flaws in the key swing states.

Joe Biden has bowed to the inevitable, and abandoned his attempt at re-election. It was a decision that should have been made four years ago in his first election campaign. 

Even back then in 2020, there were clear concerns about the Democratic nominee’s age and health. But the Democratic party, with the active connivance of sections of the US media, worked overtime to cast any such concerns as nothing more than Republican slurs, and Mr Biden won the election.

Questions about his health, however, never quite went away. Clips of the President stumbling, misspeaking or appearing visibly confused continued to circulate for the duration of his term, in each case defused by helpful allies across the press, dismissed as “cheapfakes” or labelled “misinformation”. 

When the change came, it came swiftly. When questions came one or two at a time from partisan sources, they could, with effort, be dismissed. When it became common knowledge that people of all persuasions could see that something was not quite right, they started to come thick and fast from all sides at once.

White House aides carried out a 'calculated' years-long plot to hide President Joe Biden's cognitive decline from the world that failed miserably as a flood of Democrats demanded he drop out of the presidential race in the 24 days after his disastrous debate.

It all culminated when Biden make the seismic decision to withdraw from the presidential race and officially endorse Kamala Harris as the Democratic nominee. 

Staff closest to the ailing 81-year-old deployed a multitude of tactics to hide his deficiencies - limiting reporter access to him, giving the president smaller stairs for Air Force One and physically surrounding him in public to hide his stiff walk, a former Biden aide tells DailyMail.com.

Biden has also been given large-print notecards with the most basic of instructions written on them for almost every event and kept to a tighter daily schedule so he can get more sleep.

There was even staff charged with devising strategies to keep the president from falling down, the source said. 

Now, as one insider told DailyMail.com, those advisers who coordinated the president's protective cocoon should be held to blame for his spectacular fall from grace.

Below are the key findings, according to the investigation:

Secret Service did not attend a security briefing provided to local special weapons and tactics (SWAT) and sniper teams the morning of July 13, 2024.

At 9:00am on July 13, 2024, Butler County Emergency Services (Butler ESU) provided a security briefing for the local SWAT teams and snipers assigned to the rally. In addition to Butler County, local SWAT teams and snipers from Washington County and Beaver County were also tasked with security responsibilities.

According to local law enforcement, Butler ESU was responsible for assigning locations for the sniper teams under its command. According to information obtained by Senator Johnson’s office, there were less than 40 local SWAT operators and snipers assigned to the Butler rally.

During the briefing, Butler ESU provided local law enforcement with images of the security perimeter at the rally—which did not include the American Glass Research (AGR) building where the shooter, Thomas Matthew Crooks, was located—the location of law enforcement agents, and a breakdown of security sectors on the farm show grounds. Secret Service did not attend this security briefing according to individuals with knowledge of the briefing.

It is unclear why Secret Service did not participate in this security briefing and the extent to which Butler ESU coordinated with Secret Service in creating and implementing the security plan for the rally.

Last week, the Republican nominee for President Donald Trump was shot in the ear during a campaign rally by a 20-year-old would-be assassin who had climbed up on a nearby roof less than 180 meters from the stage. The incredible failure of the Secret Service has led to theories that forces other than a lone gunman were involved.

Former US President and Republican nominee for President Donald Trump might not make it to the election, former CIA analyst and co-founder of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity Ray McGovern and Former US Assistant Treasury Secretary Paul Craig Roberts speculated in separate interviews with Sputnik.

“My question is whether they (the deep state) will take another shot at Trump,” McGovern said on Friday. “I’m serious here. There’s so much at stake. So damn much at stake. And I just wonder if he’s going to make it and, call me a conspiracy theorist, but these people, they don’t have much conscience if they tolerate genocide in Gaza, if they tolerate half a million Ukrainian youths being killed for their whims.”

Roberts expressed similar sentiments on Sunday. “The real question is: will the deep state get away with its assassination attempt and will it attempt another?" Roberts said. "I expect that there will be more attempts on Trump's life.”

On July 21, US President Joe Biden suddenly announced that he is not going to seek reelection and is dropping out from the presidential race.

“I assume that Covid was the last straw since it apparently knocked him for a loop,” US constitutional historian and political commentator Dan Lazare said regarding Joe Biden’s sudden withdrawal from the presidential race.

He argued that by delaying his withdrawal for so long, Biden actually “hurt the Democrats,” and predicted that Kamala Harris, Biden’s VP and possible presidential candidate, will “do better on the campaign trail than most people expect.”

The reality of the United States is that the country has not had a functional leader since President Joe Biden took office, independent candidate for the US Senate from New York Diane Sare told Sputnik on Sunday.

"My initial reaction to President Biden's announcement that he is withdrawing from the presidential election is that a glimmer of reality has entered the political scene," Sare said. "The truth of the matter is that we have not had a functional President since he's been in office, which has created the possibility for great instability, which instability has increased with the attempted assassination of leading presidential candidate Donald Trump."

I and others have pointed out astonishing voids in the Secret Service’s protection of Trump. The voids are so egregious that they cannot be blamed on incompetence. Scott Ritter says that intent is the only explanation.

Now these conclusions are backed by acoustic evidence. The fact that bullets travel faster than sound means that the time between hearing the bullet pass the microphone and then the sound allows the calculation of the distance from which the bullet was fired. The time differences reveal different distances. Therefore the conclusion is unavoidable that there was more than one shooter.

Mike Adams walks us through one approximately 30 minute analysis, and Chris Martenson walks us through another 30 minute analysis.

Mike Adams concludes that there were 7 shots fired, 5 from the distance of Crooks’ location, and 2 from two different longer distances.

Martenson makes the point that the shot at Trump that hit a man in the upper row was traveling on an upward trajectory, which implies it did not come from the top of the building where Crooks was positioned.

Republicans are united this time around, David Urban, former adviser to Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign, said during an appearance on Breitbart News Saturday following the Republican National Convention.

Host Matthew Boyle noted that he has covered Republican politics for 15 years and has never seen anything like what he witnessed at the convention.

“Usually, everybody’s fighting with each other and there’s — it’s kind of fun, honestly,” he said, noting that, generally speaking, Republicans have been more fun to cover politically for those very reasons.

“But, that being said, it’s kind of, you know, bizarro world right?” he said, as Republicans are more unified than ever.

As early as January 2022, researchers at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) were aware of at least 850 peer-reviewed case reports and/or research articles on COVID-19 vaccine reactions, according to emails obtained by Children’s Health Defense (CHD).

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, directed by the infamous virologist Anthony Fauci, is also part of the NIH and is now under indictment before the American Congress and in two state courts for the concealments and lies about the Covid emergency and the censorship of laboratory origin of SARS-Cov-2). The National Institutes of Health is also directly dependent on the US Department of Health (HHS).

While tensions in Ukraine seem to have slowed down a bit due to the growth of former President Donald Trump’s chances in the imminent race for the White House (elections November 5, 2024) and with them the immediate nightmare of a nuclear war on which NATO has greatly influenced, the real atomic threat could manifest itself in the Middle East for three very connected episodes.

Yesterday there was the massive revenge by Tel Aviv with an huge attack on the Yemeni port of Hudaydah (Hodeida) which may become the the fuse for a nuclear escalation.

“Yemeni forces will respond to this Heinous Aggression”

The Yemeni Houthis continue to carry out their reprisals against Western and Israeli military and commercial ships in transit in the Red Sea to highlight the unacceptable genocide in Gaza carried out by the Israeli Zionist regime of Benjamin Netanyahu.

According to PRESS TV, Yemen’s Armed Forces vow to keep up their pro-Palestinian operations after the Israeli regime attacks civilian targets in the Arab Peninsula country as means of trying to deter Sana’a from carrying out the strikes.

The forces’ spokesman Brigadier General Yahya Saree made the remarks on Saturday, hours after Israeli warplanes targeted buildings, oil facilities, and a power station in the western Yemeni province of al-Hudaydah, causing a number of casualties.

As you will read, this may also have weight in the reinterpretation of the shooting against the former Republican presidential candidate, who now has almost the mathematical certainty of returning to the White House. We will analyze the political aspects in the next few days. Now let’s go back to the attack…

While La Ñina is helping ease the traffic knots at the Panama Canal, repeated attacks by Houthis — some fatal — have driven shippers to find alternatives to the Suez Canal, said Ryan Loy, extension economist for the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.

The Panama Canal is a key route for global trade, including for Arkansas commodities such as soybeans and corn. In March, the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development said that traffic through the Panama Canal had dropped 49 percent since 2021 and 42 percent in the Suez Canal during the same period.

“About 26 percent of U.S. soybeans and 17 percent of U.S. corn is transported via the Panama Canal,” Loy said. “And this is important to us, especially in Arkansas, because a lot of our grain goes down the Mississippi River to the Port of New Orleans.”

Arkansas’s export soybeans and corn go through the Panama Canal to get to Asia, Loy noted

There are unconfirmed rumours on Chinese social media that Chinese leader Xi Jinping suffered a stroke during Third Plenum meetings.

These rumors have gotten some traction so keep an eye on them. That said, these kinds of rumours always seem to perk up, including persistent rumours that Vlad Putin has died.

These reports, evidently originated from a YouTube blog from dissident Jennifer Zeng, who has previously floated rumours about a coup and Xi's arrest before. Despite that, they have been doing the rounds in Chinese and Russian social media for a few hours. I'm reluctant to even report on them but there is a chance that Chinese markets move on them. I certainly don't believe them.

Back in the world of real news, we're waiting on news from the Third Plenum and how China can dig its way out of deepening pessimism about economic prospects, especially among young people.

Ukraine’s Vladimir Zelensky would likely need to hold a nationwide referendum to “legitimize” any potential peace agreement with Russia, the Mayor of Kiev Vitaly Klitschko has said. Effectively, any move Zelensky could make risks his “political suicide,” Klitschko believes.

Speaking with Italian daily Corriere della Sera on Sunday, the mayor of the Ukrainian capital predicted that the “next few months” are set to be “very difficult” for Zelensky.

“We are waiting for the US elections, but to establish peace we will need a referendum,” he said.

The nationwide vote would likely be needed to “legitimize” a potential peace deal with Moscow, given that any compromise would be very hard to explain to the Ukrainian public, Klitschko believes. Continuing the hostilities for another few years, however, is not an option either, the mayor insisted.

Webmaster addition: I think I know which way the Ukrainians will vote.
