Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his group are fans of a fringe streamer who claimed that “Hitler was a Rothschild” and that he was “utterly set up”

Kennedy to James Corbett: “Thank you for all of your extraordinary work for keeping the public informed”

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his organization Children's Health Defense are fans and promoters of James Corbett, a Sandy Hook and 9/11 conspiracy theorist who has claimed that “Hitler was a Rothschild” and “Hitler and the Nazis were one hundred percent completely and utterly set up … by the international banking community and the international crony capitalists.”

Kennedy has thanked Corbett for his supposedly “extraordinary work for keeping the public informed,” and Kennedy’s anti-vaccine group has featured Corbett in numerous videos and at a recent symposium.

Kennedy’s connections to Corbett add to a growing list of the Democratic presidential candidate’s right-wing media associations, including but not limited to:

Appearances on programs hosted by right-wing personalities, including Steve Bannon, Charlie Kirk, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, and Stew Peters.

Promoting and partnering with QAnon and COVID-19 conspiracy theorists.

Appearing as a “featured” speaker on the right-wing, pro-Trump ReAwaken America tour.

Promoting right-wing organizations Project Veritas, The Epoch Times, and Judicial Watch.

Conducting outreach to neo-Nazi, white supremacist, and antisemitic accounts on the far-right platform Gab.

This RFK Jr. tweet is being called out. When you see it...

Since the assassination of my father in 1968, candidates for president are provided Secret Service protection. But not me.

Typical turnaround time for pro forma protection requests from presidential candidates is 14-days. After 88-days of no response and after several follow-ups by our campaign, the Biden Administration just denied our request. Secretary Mayorkas: "I have determined that Secret Service protection for Robert F Kennedy Jr is not warranted at this time."
Our campaign's request included a 67-page report from the world's leading protection firm, detailing unique and well established security and safety risks aside from commonplace death threats.

Amazon Wants to Sell You a $25/mo Unlimited Cell Phone Plan

Amazon is partnering with Dish to offer its Boost Infinite service to Prime members.

T-Mobile completed its acquisition of Sprint in 2020, and one of the conditions of the deal was that it had to give Dish Network some wireless spectrum and roaming agreements, so that Dish could have its own wireless network. Dish has been slowly building up its infrastructure since then, and now it has struck a deal with Amazon to sell its unlimited wireless plan through the biggest online store in the world.

Dish and Amazon have teamed up to sell Dish's (somewhat) new postpaid phone service, Boost Infinite, through a dedicated store page on Amazon's website. Boost Infinite normally offers unlimited talk, text and data for $25 per month — though your speeds may slow down after you surpass 30GB of usage in a single month. Purchasing the plan through Amazon's store gets you the SIM kit for $20 instead of $25, and there's a $25 bill credit included when you activate your phone within 30 days. After that, the monthly price of $25/mo is the same. You can also add up to 5 lines per account, and Dish says the service is "compatible with most unlocked iPhones and Android smartphones."

Dish said in its announcement, "Boost Infinite makes it easy for Prime members to bring their compatible phones, keep their current phone numbers (or get new ones), enable the SIMs, activate via the Boost Infinite app, and get up and running with no hidden fees or minimum line requirements."

Boost Infinite is being built around Dish's own cellular network, which it has been attempting to expand quickly enough to meet federal requirements. However, Dish doesn't have towers covering every corner of the United States, so it also has roaming agreements with other major networks. In areas without sufficient coverage from Dish itself, subscribers will switch between AT&T and T-Mobile towers as needed.

This Georgetown cottage is up for sale [$998,000] and it comes with a lot of history

WASHINGTON — We all know finding good housing in the District can be costly. If you're looking for a new place, a cute little place in Georgetown just hit the market for the low, low price of $998,000. It comes with plenty of history.

The one-bedroom cottage is believed to have been built by a British sea captain in the 1700s. It comes with a story that could only be told in D.C.

The little gem was owned for 65 years by Ann Caracristi, a World War II cryptologist who became the first female Deputy Director of the National Security Agency. A few of her possessions come with the house, including a wooden desk and books. But if you're looking for NSA secrets, you're out of luck. The NSA reportedly swept the house before it was put on the market.

For a closer look at this uniquely D.C. thing, check out the listing here.
