Clinton Shoe Thrower Apparently Conspiracy Theorist Obsessed With Aurora Shooter

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton waves to the crowd after delivering remarks at the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries conference on April 10, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Clinton is continuing on a speaking tour this week with the stop at the recycling industry trade conference.

The wo­man who threw a shoe a Hil­lary Clin­ton on Thursday night in Las Ve­gas ap­pears to the be same wo­man who in­ter­rup­ted the court pro­ceed­ings of James Holmes and filed a mo­tion to have the con­fessed Au­rora, Colo., theat­er shoot­er re­leased from jail.

Al­is­on Michelle Ernst was ar­res­ted Thursday after sneak­ing past se­cur­ity to throw a soc­cer cleat at Clin­ton dur­ing the former sec­ret­ary of State’s speech to an in­dustry as­so­ci­ation in the city. The shoe missed its tar­get, and Clin­ton laughed off the would-be at­tack un­harmed.

In Au­gust of 2012, a wo­man of the same name and age was re­moved from a courtroom in Col­or­ado after in­ter­rupt­ing Holmes’s court ap­pear­ance, say­ing she had evid­ence to ex­on­er­ate the sus­pect. The Secret Ser­vice and the Clark County Dis­trict At­tor­ney’s Of­fice could not con­firm Ernst’s iden­tity when con­tac­ted by Na­tion­al Journ­al, but the New York Post re­ports that Col­or­ado of­fi­cials con­firmed it is the same Al­is­on Michelle Ernst.

After her out­burst, Ernst filed a mo­tion in court al­leging that Holmes was “mind-con­trolled” by a power­ful con­spir­at­ors.

“Holmes is an in­no­cent man. James Holmes must be re­leased to me asap [sic]. This is a huge con­spir­acy,” Ernst’s mo­tion read, fin­ger­ing a prom­in­ent busi­ness­man as the true mas­ter­mind of the at­tack. He is, she con­tin­ued, “in­volved in with new world and a group of cabal evil world­wide crooks who want to con­trol the world through false flag at­tacks akin to George Or­well 1984 [sic].”

The judge dis­missed the mo­tion and loc­al me­dia de­scribed the doc­u­ment as “bizarre.” On what ap­pears to be Ernst’s per­son­al web­site, she posts an­oth­er court mo­tion in­volving Holmes, this one a re­quest for a re­strain­ing or­der against the con­fessed killer.

“James Holmes [is] en­ter­ing my mind through sub­lim­in­al mes­saging and caus­ing me to be ob­sessed with him on a daily basis,” she wrote in that doc­u­ment. She ad­ded that she is “fa­cing im­min­ent danger and bod­ily harm from de­fend­ant James Holmes,” even though he was in cus­tody at the time.

The New World Or­der is a pop­u­lar con­spir­acy the­ory on­line, and Ernst has been a top­ic of heated dis­cus­sion on mes­sage boards owned by con­spir­acy en­tre­pren­eur Alex Jones.

Ad­her­ents to the con­spir­acy the­ory be­lieve the Au­rora theat­er shoot­ing — along with al­most every oth­er act of do­mest­ic mass vi­ol­ence in the past two dec­ades — was ac­tu­ally the work of a me­ga­lo­ma­ni­ac­al cabal of elites that use staged “false flag” at­tacks to in­still fear in the Amer­ic­an people. Oc­ca­sion­ally, be­liev­ers have ac­ted on their be­liefs off the In­ter­net, as Ernst ap­par­ently did in both cases.

When It Comes to Mining Asteroids, Technology Is Only the First Problem
1 days ago
WHY WE CARE

Foreign Policy takes a look at the future of mining the estimated "100,000 near-Earth objects—including asteroids and comets—in the neighborhood of our planet. Some of these NEOs, as they’re called, are small. Others are substantial and potentially packed full of water and various important minerals, such as nickel, cobalt, and iron. One day, advocates believe, those objects will be tapped by variations on the equipment used in the coal mines of Kentucky or in the diamond mines of Africa. And for immense gain: According to industry experts, the contents of a single asteroid could be worth trillions of dollars." But the technology to get us there is only the first step. Experts say "a multinational body might emerge" to manage rights to NEOs, as well as a body of law, including an international court.

Obama Reflects on His Economic Record
1 days ago
WHY WE CARE

Not to be outdone by Jeffrey Goldberg's recent piece in The Atlantic about President Obama's foreign policy, the New York Times Magazine checks in with a longread on the president's economic legacy. In it, Obama is cognizant that the economic reality--73 straight months of growth--isn't matched by public perceptions. Some of that, he says, is due to a constant drumbeat from the right that "that denies any progress." But he also accepts some blame himself. “I mean, the truth of the matter is that if we had been able to more effectively communicate all the steps we had taken to the swing voter,” he said, “then we might have maintained a majority in the House or the Senate.”

Reagan Families, Allies Lash Out at Will Ferrell
1 days ago
WHY WE CARE

Ronald Reagan's children and political allies took to the media and Twitter this week to chide funnyman Will Ferrell for his plans to play a dementia-addled Reagan in his second term in a new comedy entitled Reagan. In an open letter, Reagan's daughter Patti Davis tells Ferrell, who's also a producer on the movie, “Perhaps for your comedy you would like to visit some dementia facilities. I have—I didn’t find anything comedic there, and my hope would be that if you’re a decent human being, you wouldn’t either.” Michael Reagan, the president's son, tweeted, "What an Outrag....Alzheimers is not joke...It kills..You should be ashamed all of you." And former Rep. Joe Walsh called it an example of "Hollywood taking a shot at conservatives again."

Clinton No Longer Running Primary Ads

WHY WE CARE

In a sign that she’s ready to put a longer-than-ex­pec­ted primary battle be­hind her, former Sec­ret­ary of State Hil­lary Clin­ton (D) is no longer go­ing on the air in up­com­ing primary states. “Team Clin­ton hasn’t spent a single cent in … Cali­for­nia, In­di­ana, Ken­tucky, Ore­gon and West Vir­gin­ia, while” Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) “cam­paign has spent a little more than $1 mil­lion in those same states.” Meanwhile, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Sanders’ "lone back­er in the Sen­ate, said the can­did­ate should end his pres­id­en­tial cam­paign if he’s los­ing to Hil­lary Clin­ton after the primary sea­son con­cludes in June, break­ing sharply with the can­did­ate who is vow­ing to take his in­sur­gent bid to the party con­ven­tion in Phil­adelphia.”

Movie Based on ‘Clinton Cash’ to Debut at Cannes

WHY WE CARE

The team behind the bestselling "Clinton Cash"—author Peter Schweizer and Breitbart's Stephen Bannon—is turning the book into a movie that will have its U.S. premiere just before the Democratic National Convention this summer. The film will get its global debut "next month in Cannes, France, during the Cannes Film Festival. (The movie is not a part of the festival, but will be shown at a screening arranged for distributors)." Bloomberg has a trailer up, pointing out that it's "less Ken Burns than Jerry Bruckheimer, featuring blood-drenched money, radical madrassas, and ominous footage of the Clintons."
