The inventive and indefatigable Edward Klein, author of many works of purported non-fiction, is back in bookstores with Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas.

In his latest work, the former Newsweek journalist recounts supposedly verbatim conversations between Bill and Hillary Clinton about Benghazi, and between Bill Clinton and his “friends” reviling President Obama. He also quotes, at length, a bitter argument over dinner in the White House between the former president and the current president. And he claims to prove that Hillary Clinton is concealing secrets about her own severe ill health and that she considered resigning in protest against the Benghazi “coverup.”

But Klein’s incredible scoops, faithfully promoted by various Murdoch outlets, deserve to be considered in light of his past record – which indicates a high likelihood of fraud. In 2005, he published The Truth About Hillary, an error-filled volume that claimed Chelsea Clinton was conceived when Bill Clinton “raped” Hillary, who Klein says is actually a secret lesbian. That book was bad enough to offend Sean Hannity.

For a sense of Klein’s commitment to accuracy and fairness, The National Memo is pleased to present a three-part interview with Klein by Al Franken and Joe Conason on Air America Radio’s Al Franken Show when The Truth About Hillary was published (hat tip to Newshounds for the transcript), which was also simulcast on TV’s Sundance Channel.

Holocaust Memorial Group Excoriates RFK Jr Over Nazi Anti-Vax Rhetoric

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. continued to tarnish his family’s name with a speech at the anti-vaccine rally in Washington, D.C., on Sunday. Kennedy, who is suing Daily Kos over a user post reporting on his participation in an anti-mask rally in Germany that was organized and attended by Nazis, used Sunday’s high-profile (if not especially well-attended) event to … compare vaccination mandates to the Holocaust while spewing out a word salad of conspiracy theories.

“Even in Hitler’s Germany, you could cross the Alps into Switzerland, you could hide in an attic like Anne Frank did. I visited in 1962 East Germany with my father, and met people who had climbed the wall and escaped. So it was possible. Many died [inaudible], but it was possible,” Kennedy said to what The Washington Post described as a crowd that had begun drifting away. “Today, the mechanisms are being put in place that will make it so none of us can run and none of us can hide. Within five years, we’re going to see 415,000 low-orbit satellites. Bill Gates said his 65,000 satellites alone will be able to look at every square-inch of the planet 24 hours a day. They’re putting in 5G to harvest our data and control our behavior. Digital currency that will allow them to punish us from a distance and cut off our food supply.”

The fact that not everyone in Texas is a far-right Republican was evident on Sunday, January 23, when San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was interviewed by reporters and spoke his mind about voting rights — slamming not only Republicans, but also, two centrist Democrats: Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona.

Before the Spurs’ game against the Philadelphia 76ers — the basketball team known for everyone from Julius Erving, a.k.a. Dr. J., to Allen Iverson — the 72-year-old Popovich told reporters:
