Conspiracy Corner – October, Surprise (and a little rant about Donald Trump)

Another week, another Conspiracy Corner with yours truly. This week: The October Surprise (the surprise is, it’s all about Ronald Reagan and Jimmy Carter)!

One thing we sort of didn’t get around to mentioning is whether the October Surprise conspiracy theory is warranted. I think not and, as support to my claim, I’m going to do something I thought I would never do. I’m going to link, approvingly, to a piece by Daniel Pipes.

We also talked briefly about Donald Trump’s 5 million dollar challenge to Barack Obama to release his college and passport documents.

Frankly, I’ll be very surprised if the office of the POTUS accedes to this demand.
