Watford fans with interesting conspiracy theories on how they beat Newcastle United and Steve Bruce | NUFC The Mag

[ad_1]

Watford fans thought the writing was on the wall.

Seeing their team win only one Premier League match in six months, an eleven game run of seven defeats and three draws.

Then on Tuesday they fell a goal behind at home to Norwich, before fighting back to win 2-1.



Then Saturday it was exactly the same scenario against Newcastle, these six points in less than a week seemingly ensuring safety.

Interesting to read the theories from Watford fans on what they watched yesterday

Conspiracy theories that involved the mafia and / or Steve Bruce desperate to do Villa a favour.

As well as the Watford fans trying to work out just how much this latest win was about their own team doing well, or the failings of Newcastle United and Steve Bruce.

Watford fans comment via their WFC Forums message board:

Good Mafia-style bribery of the Newcastle defenders today. Well done Pozzo.

I suppose it would be easy to say that Newcastle are home and dry mid-table and were not going to break legs to win this match.

But their defence was so poor. It was worse than ours I think.

It was not just the penalties (soft or not they were penalties, Steve Bruce), they could easily have conceded 2 or 3 goals in open play.

I recall they were extremely poor at the start of the season (the worst of the lot) and we were robbed up there by VAR incompetence.



At half time I had given up. Thought Newcastle were so much better than us in the first half I just couldnt see us scoring let alone winning.

A nail biting end to the game even though Newcastle had long thrown in the towel.

Would be nice to actually start a game well and play a 90 minute match rather than a 45 minute match!

That said, they were immense second half, every single one of them. We didnt give a decent Newcastle side a sniff.

The fat tw.t manager of Newcastle, resting all his star players against City..how did that work out? You got what you deserved. Im going to have a beer and celebrate a rare good day at the office.

Hooray we won again! And deserved on the second half performance to be honest. Newcastle were dozing. I see Bruce was crying about our pens, it must pain the opposition managers greatly when they lose to a team like Watford.

As good as the win was, its still quite depressing to think itll be another season of misery in the PL with this group of players.

Nobody is going to want them whether we go down or not.

Brighton and Newcastle are lucky there have been several teams even worse than them.

Bruce moaning about VAR. What goes around comes around Stevie boy!!



I thought Newcastle player ASM looked a real handful ,good skill and very quick.

Nothing to say about the first half, beside the fact it highlighted exactly why weve been in the thick of a relegation. Lack of confidence, lack of technical ability, and a clear lack of leadership. Horrendous performance, even under pressure.

Second half was better, in every aspect, but we need major changes this summer.

I view the result as a genuine miracle. I have no idea how we won that game. Amazed we got the 2nd penalty. Its hard to believe that just happened. But it did, so very grateful for that.

I had a good feeling about this Newcastle game, Deeney is todays saviour. He should no longer be starting for us but fair play to him for putting away 2 penalties.

Really soft penalties according to Bruce. But they were illegal challenges. Cannot see what he is arguing about.

The irony is, despite Bruce resting his star players for this game there are genuinely Villa fans who think he deliberately threw it to get back at them.

Because a PL manager would definitely be able to persuade his players who couldnt give two hoots about his previous beef to take part in match fixing.

Huge shout out to Newcastle for taking points off all our rivals then giving us 3 points on a silver platter.



In the 2nd half, particularly after the penalty we looked much better. Helped, in my view, by Newcastle players all contacting their agents at half time to book their summer holidays for them.

MASSIVE WIN! Great 2nd half performance. Bed wetters must be RAGING!

Huge win

Fair play to the team, second half performance was very good

Deeney limping at the end, another bonus.

Goodness knows why it takes another 45 minutes to wake up. Pressed up and should have scored a couple more. Mind you Newcastle must have imbibed some mogadon in their drinks.

Will take that all day! Deserved a bit of luck (and/or idiocy from Newcastle). Touching distance of survival now off to get blind drunk.

Very good second half, when youre down the bottom and struggling Newcastles back line imploding and giving away two completely stupid pens is exactly the luck you need.

I thought overall we were genuinely good. Newcastle werent up to much maximim is a bone shaker, all arms and legs but no real end product. The ref was horrendous apart from the penalties, we were never able to get into a rhythm with him blowing up every time we made a tackle.

Sanders and Schumer call on McConnell to hold hearings to fight election conspiracy theories – KTVZ

Sanders and Schumer call on McConnell to hold hearings to fight election conspiracy theories - KTVZ

[ad_1]

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer of New York are calling on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to create a new bipartisan committee focused on election integrity and schedule hearings to reassure Americans over a process President Donald Trump has repeatedly sought to undermine.

There is growing anxiety among Democrats, and some Republicans, that Trump will not only continue to sow doubt over the legitimacy of the coming election but throw the subsequent count into chaos by declaring victory before all the votes can be tallied, including the millions that will arrive by mail.

In a letter to McConnell, Sanders and Schumer quote back the Kentucky senator’s own words, in which he attested to the reliability of mail-in voting by citing its successes in Oregon, Washington and Colorado, which have been using the system for years.

Trump has repeatedly questioned the validity of mail-in voting, promoted conspiracy theories questioning election security, called on supporters to act as unsanctioned “poll watchers,” and suggested that the absence of a clear result by the evening of November 3 would in some way cast doubt on the eventual outcome. Key allies in powerful positions, like Attorney General Bill Barr, have followed suit. Barr has persisted in puffing up a debunked claim that ballots received by mail would somehow strip the sender of their privacy — ignoring well-established safeguards.

By escalating the matter now, Sanders and Schumer are responding to growing concern, in partisan and nonpartisan spaces, that Americans are not adequately prepared for the potential of a longer-than-usual wait for results or Trump’s willingness to short-circuit the democratic process if he smells defeat.

“Democrats and Republicans in Congress must come together to ensure that we have a free and fair election where every vote is cast and counted without intimidation,” Sanders told CNN, “where no one has to put his or her health in danger to cast a ballot, and where we have full confidence in the results.”

The proposed hearings would invite a cross-section of election officials from across the country to testify to the security and reliability of mail-in, early- and in-person voting — subjects on which Sanders and Schumer, again, referenced McConnell’s own words.

“Despite the clear security of our vote-by-mail system, some have continued to undermine it with unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud,” they wrote. “As you have correctly said, people ‘can vote early, you can vote on Election Day, or you can drop it in the mail,’ and that voters should ‘not worry about your vote not counting.’”

The minority leader and Sanders, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, also want more detailed discussion about the fraught hours, or days, after the polls close and a real-time watch of the election horse race potentially swings from one candidate to another.

“We know a number of states may well be counting ballots for a period of time after Election Day, and that those votes may be determinative in this election,” the senators wrote to McConnell. “To avoid disinformation, conspiracy theories, and suspicion about results, we must understand the likely timeline for this process.”

The letter goes on to reference the recent war games-style preparations conducted by a group called the Transition Integrity Project, a bipartisan gathering of operatives and academics that made headlines when some of the outcomes of their exercises — including “both street-level violence and political impasse” — were reported on in late July.

“A bipartisan group of experts and officials have studied multiple scenarios where the outcome of the election was not immediately known. Some of these scenarios resulted in unrest and even violence,” Sanders and Schumer wrote, suggesting the Senate should elevate similar discussions and familiarize the public with the uncertainties ahead. “We would like to hear from the most knowledgeable people in the country as to how we can do everything possible to make sure that the election and the period afterward is secure and peaceful.”

HHS official sorry for conspiracy theory video

[ad_1]

HHS supported Caputo, with a statement that called him a critical, integral part of the presidents coronavirus response, leading on public messaging as Americans need public health information to defeat the COVID-19 pandemic.

There was no immediate statement from the White House.

Attempts to reach Caputo were unsuccessful.

On Capitol Hill, Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., called on Azar to fire Caputo, accusing the spokesman of trying to interfere with CDC reports to the medical and scientific community, as well as the public at large. And Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called on Azar himself to resign, citing interference with the CDC as one example of what he termed the administration’s failures.

Officials at CDC have privately complained of recent efforts by political appointees at main HHS to try to edit or press for changes in the agency’s weekly MMWR publications, a go-to resource for public health professionals.

MMWR articles are technical, but they reveal telling details. One published earlier this year noted that while Trump’s travel restrictions dramatically reduced travel from China in February, nothing was being done at that time to restrict travel from Italy and Europe, where the coronavirus was spreading widely and rapidly. Analysis of virus samples from hard-hit New York in March suggested it was introduced there from Europe and other parts of the U.S., the CDC article reported.

Caputo is an unswerving Trump loyalist. His recent book, The Ukraine Hoax, claims the presidents phony impeachment was rooted in a vast conspiracy.

This is exactly what conspiracy theorists and anti-vaxxers have done with their HIV/AIDS and Polio narrative (among others), only we’re seeing it escalated to weeks and months instead of years or decades.
