Lurid Trump Allegations by Louise Mensch Said to Have Came from a Hoaxer


Former MP and former editor of Heat Street, Louise Mensch and colleague Claude Taylor, a blogger, are accused of using bogus information from a hoaxer who falsely claimed to work in law enforcement. A guardian report claims this information was used in scandalous stories about President Trump.

The guardian makes a compelling case.

This isn’t the first time fabulist and obsessed Trump hater Mensch appears to have invented injurious tales about the President. She tweeted recently, “My sources say the death penalty, for espionage, being considered for @StevenKBannon. I am pro-life and take no pleasure in reporting this.”

Mensch now runs a blog with Taylor called Patribotics. It is a site consisting of “Investigative journalism and analysis of the Russian hack on America’s election and related topics. Pro-America, pro-democracy, pro-NATO, pro-Russia, anti-Putin.”

She sees Putin conspiracies everywhere. For example, when Kurt Eichenwald had a seizure from a flashing meme sent to him by a Twitter user, she thought Russian agents did it.

She broke news on occasion but often appeared unhinged. Apparently, despite her fight against “fake news”, she might be the fake news herself.

What the guardian does know is that Claude Taylor tweeted fake details of criminal inquiries into Trump that were invented by a source who deliberately and falsely claimed to work for the New York attorney general. The source’s background was not checked, according to emails seen by the guardian. The allegations were endorsed as authentic and retweeted by his co-writer Louise Mensch.

One story by the two alleged that Trump’s inactive fashion model agency was under investigation New York for sex trafficking. Another was about Russian money laundering which was said to implicate Rudy Giuliani.

The hoaxer sent the fake news to Taylor because she was frustrated by fake news that Taylor and Mensch were spewing.

“Taylor asked no questions to verify my identity, did no vetting whatsoever, sought no confirmation from a second source – but instead asked leading questions to support his various theories, asking me to verify them,” according to the guardian’s source.

Taylor apologized and Mensch said she had another source. That seems to fall apart given the fact that the story was invented by a hoaxer. That would be quite a coincidence.

Mensch also claimed no one vets other peoples’ sources.

The allegedly false claims have been retweeted thousands of times.

Taylor and Mensch each have more than 200,000 followers. They collect donations for their tales. People like Senator Ed Markey has repeated their unverified information.

A couple of her tweets from the guardian.

Mensch posted a rebuttal to the accusations.

In May Mensch claimed an indictment of Trump had already been handed down. Julian Assange called her out on it.

After I wrote about that strange story, Mensch blocked me on Twitter. It’s the last time I read anything by Mensch on her website or anywhere. We don’t know if Mensch had her own sources but reading her for accurate stories is a waste of time.



  1. Once I became aware that NeverTrumpers would use the same tactics and innuendos as extreme leftists I no longer would listen to any of their words. It was most insidious with Glenn Beck and his detailed account on how Trump IS Hitler and his supporters were no different than brownshirts. I was more than disgusted with this. And this wasn’t just some off hand remark, rather it was continuously analyzed for days on end. I can’t help but suspect THIS is where the left began their same charges, because if a “conservative” would say this about one of their own, then surely they too can further the charge.

    But it didn’t stop there. A good many other “conservatives” came on the bandwagon and followed suit, with every opportunity that arose, just like the left has done to every conservative in the past. These sick individuals were quite willing to be participants in the same methods they had previously admonished to left for doing. For my own part those who perpetrated such slander will never have my ear even though they now give support to Trump because when any given situation arises they quickly return to their old ways.

    As I recall this really came to a head with Lewandowski and the charge he pulled the woman to the ground. It wasn’t very long a video came out and aired on Fox that showed the opposite. A camera at ground level right next to Lewandowski, as he was moving forward, showed he “gently” grabbing the woman’s arm as he quickly strolled by. It’s the same circumstance when a person is in a hurry and holds a person’s arm so as not to knock them over. BUT, the NeverTrumpers used this to, once again, attack Trump even AFTER the video exonerated Lewandowski. Their hatred is no different than their counterparts.
