CPAC speech prompted numerous jokes on social media
NICHOLAS KAMM/AFP via Getty ImagesA speaker at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory from the event’s main stage on Sunday, shortly before Donald Trump was scheduled to appear at the conservative movement’s premiere annual event. Former congressional candidate Angela Stanton King, who has frequently boosted the conspiracy theory on social media, called for an investigation into whether QAnon’s bizarre claims about a cabal of cannibal-pedophiles controlling the world and a mysterious figure named Q giving hidden messages to Trump supporters are real.“Let’s address it,” King said. “So we know in this election, there were some things going on in regards to the conspiracy theories with Q, right? And I think, me as a person, before I ever got into the conservative movement, I’ve always been an advocate even if it’s for abused children or it’s for those people that are incarcerated. So I think that any allegations coming forward in regards to any type of abuse when it comes to children deserves to be investigated, it deserves to be made aware of.”The CPAC crowd applauded King’s call for an investigation into the claims made by QAnon believers, which include allegations that Democratic Party leaders and Hollywood celebrities sexually abuse children and drink their blood to stay young. QAnon supporters believe in a moment called “The Storm,” in which they anticipate Trump will order mass arrests or executions of his political opponents.QAnon Incited Her to Kidnap Her Son and Then Hid Her From the Law“I think that, you know, once we find out, you know, whether this is true or not, then we can move on, but we at least have to be able to address it,” King said, claiming that the media had tried to “cancel” her for her beliefs in QAnon.CPAC speaker Angela Stanton-King is straight up promoting QAnon pic.twitter.com/BLGyeqajes— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) February 28, 2021 King, who served two years in prison over an auto-theft ring and was pardoned by Trump in 2020, once stormed out of an interview after being confronted over her support for QAnon. A positive mention of QAnon from the CPAC stage marks another inroad into the GOP for the conspiracy theory, which has been linked to murders and other crimes. A number of QAnon believers took leading roles in the U.S. Capitol riot, breaking into the building and menacing police officers.The FBI considers the conspiracy theory, which has also been praised in the past by newly elected Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO), as a potential source of domestic terrorism.The CPAC panel King appeared on was already embroiled in controversy, after scheduled speaker “Young Pharaoh” was dropped from the program over tweets attacking Jewish people.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

England greats Paul Gascoigne, Michael Owen, Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer have led the tributes to Glenn Roeder, the former national team coach, following his death on Sunday. Roeder, who also managed Gillingham, Watford, West Ham, Newcastle and Norwich, was first diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2003 and died aged 65 after what the League Managers’ Association said was a “long battle” with the illness. Gascoigne, who was a young team-mate of Roeder at Newcastle, recalled how his friend would drive him to training and act as his mentor. “The best captain I played for - the most honest, and he would put everybody before himself, making sure everybody was ready for the game,” he said. Owen, who Roeder coached at Newcastle and England, where he assisted Glenn Hoddle between 1997 and 1999, expressed his devastation. “Why do the best people leave us so early? A true gentleman,” he said. Lineker said that Roeder was a “real football man who had a great career” as both player and manager. Shearer said that Roeder had been “taken away from us way too soon”. In a 20-year career, Roeder played for Leyton Orient, Queens Park Rangers, Newcastle, Watford and Gillingham. He captained QPR in the 1982 FA Cup final at Wembley against Tottenham and to the old Second Division title in 1983. He then also captained Newcastle to promotion into the top flight the following year. LMA chairman Howard Wilkinson said that Roeder was “a cultured defender” who would later adopt a “studious” managerial style. “Glenn was such an unassuming, kind gentleman who demonstrated lifelong dedication to the game,” he said. “Not one to court headlines, his commitment and application to his work at all levels warrants special mention. Football has lost a great servant.” Roeder’s managerial career peaked with seventh placed Premier League finishes with West Ham and Newcastle, as well as victory in the 2006 Intertoto Cup. It remains Newcastle's only trophy this century. Goalkeeper Tim Krul called Roeder “the man who believed in me” and there was also a tribute from Nigel Pearson, who was his Newcastle assistant before forging his own managerial career. “When I learned the devastating, sad news that Glenn Roeder had lost his battle with a brain tumour it stopped me in my tracks,” said Pearson. “Not just because we shared fun on coaching courses. Not just because he asked me to be his assistant at Newcastle United where we had incredible fun together and success. “Not just because he and his family, Faith, Holly, Will and Joe welcomed my family to Newcastle and made us feel included with their genuine warmth and affection. All of these things, and because he was a man with incredible integrity, humility, warmth, humour and humanity. “A sensitive caring man who didn't always have as high a regard for himself as others had for him. He was loved and admired by those who worked with him.” West Ham midfielder Don Hutchison specifically remembered Roeder’s kindness when his father was dying. “[He] told me to get in my car to Newcastle and go see him quick,” said Hutchison. “Glenn was on the phone with me for all five hours of my journey. Sleep well gaffa.” Roeder was sacked from his last managerial job at Norwich in 2009 but did advise Sheffield Wednesday in 2015 and spent two years helping Stevenage from 2016 until 2018 as an advisor to manager Darren Sarll. Richard Bevan, the LMA’s chief executive, said Roeder was one of the country's most respected football managers who acted “as a trusted advisor to many coaches and players”.

(Bloomberg) -- Eight years ago, when the taper tantrum roiled emerging markets, the so-called Fragile Five of Turkey, Brazil, South Africa, India and Indonesia suffered the most. Today, another sharp spike in U.S. Treasury yields threatens to wreak havoc on at least three of those nations.The Turkish lira, Brazilian real and South African rand led major global declines last week in the worst developing-nation currency selloff since late September. Those exchange rates have the highest one-week implied volatility in the world, with some analysts warning of more pain ahead.Benchmark 10-year Treasury yields surged last week to the highest in more than a year, leading traders to yank forward their expectations on how soon the Federal Reserve will be forced to tighten policy. For now, officials are stressing that the central bank has no plans to raise rates given lingering weakness in the labor market. That will make Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s comments on Thursday at a Wall Street Journal event all the more interesting.In the developing world, dollar-denominated and local bonds just endured their worst month since last March, while stocks posted their biggest weekly decline in almost a year. MSCI Inc.’s emerging-market equity index slid beneath its 50-day moving average, suggesting the possibility of additional weakness ahead. Meantime, a JPMorgan Chase & Co. gauge tracking volatility in developing-nation assets soared last week by the most since early August.“In the absence of a more concerted effort to slow the spike in yields, emerging markets may remain under pressure,” said Ilya Gofshteyn, a senior strategist at Standard Chartered in New York. “Higher-yielding currencies will continue to be particularly adversely affected and duration across emerging markets is also likely to remain especially vulnerable.”OPEC+ will meet on Thursday, setting the stage for another potential conflict between Russia and Saudi Arabia after last year’s oil-price war. The same day, Malaysian policy makers are expected to keep borrowing costs at a record low of 1.75%.

Chelsea missed the chance to climb back into the Premier League’s top four after grinding out a goalless draw with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. The Blues threw in all their attacking personnel and every novel idea from new boss Thomas Tuchel but could not force a breakthrough against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s resolute Red Devils.
A science professor at a university in central Michigan who claimed sinister forces were targeting him and breaking into his home has been fired months after using racist, anti-Semitic and homophobic slurs on Twitter. Thomas Brennan announced in a Twitter posting Saturday he’d been fired, and Ferris State University later confirmed he was dismissed last week, The Detroit News reported. The Big Rapids-based university, which put Brennan on administrative leave in November as it investigated, declined further comment.
