Marjorie Taylor Greene famously alleged in 2018 that the California wildfires were started intentionally by a laser fired from a satellite controlled by a Jewish family. Greene is in Congress now, but she’s still pushing conspiracy theories that globalists are deliberately starting catastrophic fires to advance their agenda.
The target this time around is the nation’s food supply. Nearly two dozen food processing plants have gone up in flames this year. This isn’t out of the ordinary — there are thousands of fires at manufacturing facilities every year, according to the National Fire Protection Association — but the blazes have drawn extra attention because of the food shortage. Greene is among several conspiracy theorists to suggest foul play may be afoot, writing in a tweet earlier this week that the fires are “supposedly” random while making a point about how “our food supplies are in trouble.”
High inflation & fuel prices are making it very difficult for farmers to afford to farm & feed their stock.
Cattle farmers are getting hit hard & may go out of business.

Greene elaborated during an appearance on Infowars earlier this week, suggesting to Alex Jones that Democrats are starting the fires on purpose in order to deprive the nation of food, which would be advantageous for them because they’re playing some sort of globalist long game and don’t want anything to be manufactured in America … or something like that. It’s not totally clear. “The Biden administration and the Democrats … are destroying the very important, most critical part of the fabric of America, and that is our farmers,” Greene ranted. “They’re doing it on purpose. They want to be the global economy. They want to be completely involved. And here we have these ‘random,’ supposedly accidental fires at food processing plants.”
Jones then cut Greene off to note that the he’s talked to “statisticians” and that it’s “mathematically impossible” for processing plants to be catching fire like they have been so far this year. “Everything the globalists are doing is about destroying real sustainability and making things collapse to bring in their new world order,” he said, with Greene nodded in agreement.
“Here we have these random, ‘supposedly’ accidental fires.”

Jones has been banned from just about every notable social media channel in existence, and has long been embroiled in a legal quagmire for lying that the Sandy Hook massacre was staged. His conspiracy theorizing may bubble up through right-wing networks, but Jones himself doesn’t have a massive mainstream audience. Tucker Carlson, the most influential figure in conservative media, does, and Jones noted that the Fox News host has also been rousing suspicion about the fires at processing plants.
Here’s Carlson in April, wrapping a plane crash at a General Mills plant into the conspiracy for good measure. He also cited a boiler explosion at a potato chip factory in Oregon, along with the fires. “Industrial accidents happen, but this is a lot of industrial accidents at processing facilities at the same time the president is warning us about food shortages,” he mused. “They’re getting hit by planes and catching fire? What is going on here?”
Why are so many food processing plants and warehouses catching fire all of a sudden? And as I was sitting in the studio getting ready for the report… a plane crashed at a General Mills food facility in Georgia. I discussed the issue on Tucker Carlson Tonight. pic.twitter.com/QWJ3b6j65d
— Jason Rantz on KTTH Radio (@jasonrantz) April 22, 2022
There are tens of thousands of food processing facilities across the United States, and if Democrats for some totally insane, illogical reason wanted to cause a food shortage in an election year, one would think there would be a more effective way to go about it than rigging a boiler to explode in Oregon, sabotaging mechanical equipment at a few factories and hoping it catches fire, and orchestrating a kamikaze Cessna crash into a parking lot outside a General Mills facility.
It doesn’t make a lick of sense, but that’s never stopped Carlson from asking the important questions. “I’m sorry,” a disgusted Carlson said eventually. “The onus is on people who think this is a conspiracy theory to explain what is going on. What are the odds of that? I don’t know.”
It’s a question Tucker Carlson Tonight could have answered very, very easily. According to National Fire Protection Association data, the annual average of fires at manufacturing and processing facilities across the U.S. from 2015 to 2019 was 5,308. “There have been approximately 20 fires in U.S. food processing facilities in the first four months of 2022, which is not extreme at all and does not signal anything out of the ordinary,” NFPA spokeswoman Susan McKelvey told FactCheck.org. “The recent inquiries around these fires appears to be a case of people suddenly paying attention to them and being surprised about how often they do occur. But NFPA does not see anything out of the ordinary in these numbers.”
Carlson — along with Greene, Jones, and other conspiracy theorists pushing the idea that “they” are torching processing facilities — don’t want to know any of this, though, because as long as there aren’t answers to the questions they’re asking, they’re able to fill it in themselves with the idea that Democrats are responsible. It doesn’t make any sense, but that’s beside the point.
Here’s Proof That Drake’s 4-Year-Old Son Adonis Is a Future LeBron James
See Drake’s Son’s Cute Reaction to LeBron James Playing Ball
Ready for the big leagues.
On May 18, the “Hotline Bling” singer posted an adorable video on Instagram of the 4-year-old showing off his skills on the basketball court inside his Toronto mansion. In the clip, Adonis rocks LeBron James‘ No. 23 Los Angeles Lakers jersey as he runs a number of drills.
But Adonis doesn’t just look the part. After shooting a basket, he patted his chest a couple of times, just like LeBron has famously done throughout his career. The tot also tugged on his jersey at the shoulders throughout the video, another idiosyncrasy of the four-time NBA champion.
Drake, 35, captioned the video, “Where is he getting the mannerisms from,” before tagged LeBron and adding a laughing emoji.
The athlete reposted the video on his Instagram Story with the caption, “My nephew really love the game!!”
Adonis has been a LeBron fan for quite some time now. Last summer, Drake shared a hilarious clip of Adonis watching some of LeBron’s career highlights on his Instagram Sorry. In the video, Adonis appears totally in awe of the legendary baller, keeping his eyes glued to the screen and dropping his jaw before letting out an enthusiastic “Oh my dod!” at the end. His dad is heard chuckling at his son’s cute reaction in the background.
LeBron again commended his “nephew” in the comments, adding, “[locked] the hell in!! Yessir!!”

Stranger Things Cast Warns That Season 4 Is Too “Disturbing” for Young Viewers: Everything We Know
Stranger Things Season 4: “Kids Will Have Nightmares”
It sounds like the Upside Down was the least of our worries.
In anticipation of the Stranger Things season four premiere on May 27, the stars of the Netflix sci-fi hit told E! News that viewers—especially young ones!—have no idea what awaits them.
“I thought they’d have to tone it down,” Joseph Quinn, who plays Eddie, told E! News. “I didn’t think they would commit to how gruesome it was on the page. But clearly they don’t care about young kids at all.”
Won’t they think of the children?! Or, you know, adults who get easily scared?!
“Kids will be scared. Kids will have nightmares,” Joe Keery, who plays Steve, agreed. “If I was a kid and I watching this, it would be disturbing.”
Alright, now we’re just terrified. And we thought finding Barb’s body in season was scary!
Caleb McLaughlin, who has been around since the beginning as Lucas, echoed the sentiment. “When I watched this season, I was like ‘Wow, I don’t think I would want my nephew to watch this,'” Caleb said. “It’s very gory. It’s a lot. It’s really intense. We really took it up a notch.”
We’re happy to hear that Caleb is a stand-up uncle, but it’s not calming our nerves!
Charlie Heaton, who plays Jonathan, told us that he’s ready for parents to complain that “my kids couldn’t sleep for weeks” after watching season four.
When it comes to specifics about what exactly makes the season so frightening, Maya Hawke, who plays Robin, said “the bone breaking is really not my favorite thing to watch.”
We need to sit down.
The first episodes of Stranger Things season four arrive on Netflix May 27, with the final episodes of the season dropping on July 1.

One Life to Live Actress Marnie Schulenburg Dead at 37 After Cancer Battle
In Memoriam: Fallen Stars of 2022
Marnie Schulenburg has died after a two-year battle with stage four metastatic breast cancer.
The soap opera actress—known for her roles as Jo Sullivan in the One Life to Live reboot and Alison Stewart in As the World Turns—passed away on May 17 at age 37, her rep Kyle Luker confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
She’s survived by her husband Zack Robidas—who acts in Succession and Sorry for Your Loss—and their 2-year-old daughter Coda. Marnie was diagnosed with cancer five moths after giving birth to Coda in December 2019, according to THR.
The late actress last posted to Instagram on Mother’s Day, sharing that she was able to celebrate the holiday at home after being released from the hospital on May 6. The post showed Marnie playing in the park with her daughter and mother by her side, as well as a photo of herself reading to Coda in bed.
“It’s not my ideal to be a 38 year old Mom who needs an oxygen tank to survive right now,” wrote Marnie, who would have turned 38 on May 21. “I want to be strong and beautiful for her. I want to show her how to move throughout this world with compassion, strength, vivacity, humor and joy like my Mother showed me.”
She explained that while she was in the middle of a two-year battle with cancer, she was realized the “best thing you can do for you child is make them feel loved, safe and supported like my mother did for me.”

“I know that me being here for her is the best gift I can give her but right now it feels like settling since she’s getting a half-life version of myself,” Marnie continued. “My mother showed up 100% all day everyday for me growing up or at least it seemed that way. I want to give Coda the same but I must be kind to myself and remember that nothing is permanent.”
Before her tragic death, the former gymnast also held roles on Elementary, Tainted Dreams, City on a Hill, Royal Pains and Blue Bloods. In addition to an actor and mother, she described herself as the “partner to best the man ever” and the “owner of evil cat.”
