Quote Sooooooo, Rudy Giuliani, the President of the United State’s personal attorney, is an unregistered foreign agent laundering Russian intelligence product with the sole intent of influencing his client’s reelection. Clearly, this generation of Republican 'operatives' is not up to snuff compared to the previous generation. Karl Rove was a master. The Killian Documents were very smoothly pl

Yeah, I had the impression that they couldn't get much higher than 2,000 feet under their own power. And of course you shouldn't go any higher than you are willing to fall when it runs out of fuel. o.O You would think they would always have an 'emergency' parachute... but is there room given the size/weight constraints of such a small flight system?

By eating our garbage, our pests that eat our garbage (mice and rats)... or our pets! Quote Some of North America’s big predators—wolves, mountain lions, bobcats, and the like — are now getting nearly half their food from people. It’s a big shift away from eating foods found in nature and could put them in conflict with one another, or lead to more human-carnivore encounters on running tra

It's weird but it's the pattern for all Republican Presidents since at least Reagan. Rural communities tend to be socially conservative, and so respond to the dog whistles that the Republicans have learned to use to manipulate them. That means states where there isn't enough urban population to overwhelm the rural vote go consistently Republican. This rural vs urban thing has been going on since

Hrm... that could be the discrepancy between Democrats and Republicans willingness to go in for early voting. There is likely to be a large surge in Republican votes on the actual election day. So unless Doug Jones gets a very large lead before the final day, I wouldn't take this too seriously. The polls showing a 10 percent over-all advantage for Tuberville seem more predictive.

Quote Also, Doug Jones is leading Tuberville. This is insanity. Everything I've been able to find says Tuberville is the one leading. What are your sources? If Democrat Doug Jones is leading in Alabama, there is either a serious problem with the Republican candidate or that "Blue Tsunami" is real.

Who here has claimed that Q is real? The whole thing was probably nothing but a joke by some troll when it started, and then once it took off all sorts of people will have been trying to control it for their own purposes. That would explain why the "Q Anon Universe" is such a mess. Completely different people trying to steer the narrative. Hundreds of different people might have posted

It was rainy today, and I heard a lot of people don't like to vote when it's raining. So, sounds like a good day to brave the single location for early voting in my town. :) Only had to wait about 30 minutes. And now that is done.

Of course. It was never intended to produce a result. That's not how the game is played. Remember, Trump was not telling the President of Ukraine to produce a conviction of Hunter Biden. He just wanted an investigation to be announced... he wanted the publicity of an investigation. The Bengazi event has been investigated how many times now? If Biden had chosen Susan Rice (like Obama apparently wa

One of the largest sites for spreading QAnon to the masses was being run by an IT executive at Citigroup. This was discovered by the founder of 8chan, who has become something of an 'anti-troll' crusader since leaving that supposedly outlaw site.

Looks like he is citing from: who also doesn't give a direct source. Pew American Trends is a real polling organization (American Trends Panel at Pew Research) but there is no link to the exact study he is claiming to cite.

Yes, the way to isolate the courts further from political influence would be to have an internal voting scheme for filling the higher courts. First tier Federal judges would still have to be appointed by the current process. There is really no reasonable alternative for the basic source of judges. But appeals courts could be filled by judges in a given district voting for which of their peers the

Well, of course the best peer review comes at the point of actual work. :) But, once you've got something to present tot he public, it needs review by someone of similar skill levels who does not know you.

Odd that there is no link for this 'study' you cite... if there is an actual scientific paper underlying this and not just some 'conservative' activist punching numbers into a spreadsheet, could it be that the actual paper would say something else and you've just picked out what was useful to your propaganda? Without the original source, it's impossible to say if the 'data' you cite means anythin

No, anyone who thinks about the consequences will not like the idea of term limits. For the Supreme Court it would just crank the political tension up even higher as people on both sides shriek about the upcoming Supreme Court seat before the prior election. For Congress it would simply limit the knowledge and experience of the actual elected representatives and leave lobbyists and those

So Interior Minister Barr has not been seen in public for a while? And there have been no announcements by the Kremlin, White House? Looks like more mining of press releases is needed for clues. What has the Justice Department had to say about anything lately? Was the mass-arrest of plotters in Michigan the only event in the last week or so?

Probably not him alone, but it's quite possible he is involved. As I posted in GT&P, the final installment of a series of articles on Salon.com () makes the connection between QAnon and retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely and Lt. Col. Michael Aquino, who were involved in the US Army PSYOP program together. Aquino wrote an important paper on the principles of PSYOPs titled "From P

The Atlantic: The November Surprise Quote The combination of a deadly pandemic, a shaky election infrastructure, and a president—sickened by the coronavirus himself—sowing doubt about the integrity of the vote has led to fears of a plunge in turnout and widespread disenfranchisement. But what if those worries are overblown? There’s a chance the nation will wake up November 4 to at least one

Yes, it is. Accusing entire classes of people of such heinous crimes is inherently going to incite violence. When there is no evidence, it is simply propaganda. There have been a fair number of incidents already, and we haven't seen what happens if the election doesn't go the way the QAnuts want it to go. Interesting discussion by the techies on Slashdot...

Quote "I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business," Trump tweeted. Do you hear the message? It's a shakedown. Vote for Trump or you won't get your help. He's trying to hold the entire nation hostage to his re-election.

The history of the word has caused it to shift several times. When Kings and Aristocrats still ruled a very hierachical Europe, full of guilds and trade associations that kept economic activity locked down to protect their members, it was 'liberal' to let private entrepreneurs break out of the traditional economic order and create whole new kinds of businesses. This sense of 'liberal' is still cu

He's not doing well in Ohio, either. It seems neck & neck with Biden, when he won the state by 8 points against Hilary. Current polls show Biden up by +1 to +5, which with the usual margin of error (6 points) is just barely enough to say he has the advantage. So I'd still say it's a tie until actual votes decide it. We do still have just about a month to wait and watch...

It's an tricky question whether arguing with the believers in these bizarre plots is worthwhile. They usually just assume anyone who disagrees with them is not yet 'enlightened' or worse just part of the conspiracy. It seems that only people who are already fairly close to believers have any hope of changing their beliefs. I am only hoping to forewarn some people to slow its spread. The large sca

The term is not well chosen. It comes out of difficult historic circumstances, having been first used only about a century ago (apparently in a 1909 article in The American Historical Review about Civil War era historical conspiracy theories), and used more recently in a denigrating way to suppress suspicions about the assassination of President Kennedy. When something new comes to consciousness

And there is also a podcast with a dedicated site, called Conspirituality. This one is much more specifically focused on QAnon since that is the current 'big thing'.
