Conservapedia should revive the activity of its Twitter account, IMO

Hi Andy, RobSmith and I seem to concur that it would benefit Conservapedia to promote itself via Twitter (especially now that the era of censorship is over). Especially with page view growth being sluggish, having an extra significant source of directing web traffic could be drastically beneficial. What are your thoughts on this? —LT (Exodus 23:2) Friday, 16:34, December 9, 2022 (EST)

Xenophobic content

Xenophobic content mocking fat, lazy Brits, or any society or culture, has no place on MPR or MPL. RobSGive Peace a chance 13:29, December 10, 2022 (EST)

Conservapedia has enough of a problem with DDOS and vandal attacks arising from the UK without deliberate provocations to incite these vandal attacks. RobSGive Peace a chance 13:32, December 10, 2022 (EST)

"One of the Cretans, a prophet of their own, said, “Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, lazy gluttons.” This testimony is true." - The Apostle Paul (Titus 1: 12-13). Conservative (talk) 13:34, December 10, 2022 (EST)

It is unfair to Conservapedia users that they must waste their time dealing with retaliatory vandal attacks from a group of UK and New Zealand trolls other CP users deliberately provoke because they are in personnel dispute with editors from another wiki.

OK so it's not xenophobic. Now it's only unfair according to RobS. Thanks for clearing that up for me. Conservative (talk) 13:39, December 10, 2022 (EST)

Improving the wiki

Hi Andy, I notice that plenty of article titles on Conservapedia follow incorrect grammar styles/formats, whether its it's (yeah, pun intended) outdated spelling, capitalization of common nouns (in words notwithstanding the first word of the title), lowercase usage of proper nouns, usage of hyphens instead of en-dashes, etc. Since I don't want to bother you or other administrators continuously to move every article I notice whose title needs adjustments, may I please have the "move" tag so I can do some important tasks myself as part of improving the site? Thanks once again! —LT (Exodus 23:2) Tuesday, 23:33, December 19, 2022 (EST)

Done as requested and as recommended! Enjoy.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 10:55, December 20, 2022 (EST)

Wow, your warnings of Tom Cotton two years ago were farsighted and brilliantly accurate

Back in late August 2020, you said of Sen. Tom Cotton (who I thought of back then as a staunch conservative):

... Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton, favored by the neocons who have influence with the Fox News Channel and some donors ...

Andrew Schlafly, August 29, 2020

And from the very recent news earlier tonight, Cotton voted for the massive omnibus which will bolster the police state (aka Deep State)... which neoconservatives played a hand in creating back in the 2000s. Now, on another note, "reports" claimed that Cotton won't run for president in 2024, and some fake news headlines left out the "reports said" part and simply say "Cotton won't run for president." IMO, something shady is going on. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Friday, 22:42, December 22, 2022 (EST)

Thanks for your feedback! Tom Cotton is being groomed by the neocons and globalists for a presidential run in 2028. He's a pro-war, lock-'em-up strongman. He's a formidable candidate, although he lacks crossover appeal as a senator from Arkansas. Not sure he has the necessary charisma either, but he will be well-funded.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 22:49, December 22, 2022 (EST)
I never was the biggest fan of Cotton, but it wasn't until early 2020 that I started seeing him as the dangerous demagogue he is. He along with Mike Pompeo were among the first to jump on the "China made COVID happen on purpose" bandwagon, and since then they have been using it to build a case for a military conflict with a country that has the world's largest population, the world's largest economy, and the world's third most powerful military. Not to mention over 1,000 nuclear weapons. It's absolute insanity, and it's the central reason why I suspect that the CIA, not the CCP, was responsible for the lab leak.--Geopolitician (talk) 23:02, December 22, 2022 (EST)
Sounds like an interesting analysis, and it's certainly not the first time that the CIA tries pushing the U.S. into the brink of world war. Back in the 1960s, CIA Director Charles P. Cabell was fired by JFK in the wake of the Bay of Pigs invasion. The CIA back then pushed militant "anti-Communism" to the point of seeking outright direct war with Communist-controlled countries, and was tied to a "shadow government" run by a gang of Dallas oilmen, including Jack Crichton, who financed pro-Batista revolutionaries. There's some speculation that the CIA directly coordinated the JFK assassination as revenge for Kennedy's efforts to "quietly" deplete their funding in proposed budget plans. Crichton, a member of the OSS (which evolved into the CIA) who established powerful connections to run the "shadow government," was connected to almost all aspects of the assassination. Director Cabell's brother, Earle Cabell, the mayor of Dallas at the time of the assassination, was a CIA asset since the late 1950s, reportedly loathed JFK, and plotted the unsafe motorcade route. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Friday, 23:14, December 22, 2022 (EST)
[EC] 2028? Fascinating... your political wisdom and predictions are truly one of a kind. As for the label of "pro-war," it seems to apply to him well. As for "lock-'em'-up," hmm... sounds slightly familiar. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Friday, 23:07, December 22, 2022 (EST)
(edit conflict) Geopolitician, that is "out there" but I enjoyed your outlandish comment. I'm not sure how strong Cotton and Pompeo were against China concerning COVID-19. Trump's outspokenness on it seem more than anyone, and Trump is anti-war. Placing blame on China for Covid can mean liability more than a military conflict.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 23:08, December 22, 2022 (EST)
Trump didn't want a conflict with China, he wanted a trade deal with it. Now, how much of a coincidence do you think it is that the virus was released while Trump and Xi were in late-stage negotiations for the "Phase 1" trade deal? I don't believe it was a coincidence at all, and I suspect that the perpetrators did it precisely to prevent the trade deal from going through, because such a deal would be a serious setback for the military-industrial complex, which wants a conflict with China. That automatically makes the neocons who infiltrated the Trump administration, led by Pompeo, the prime suspects in my book.--Geopolitician (talk) 23:16, December 22, 2022 (EST)
And I do believe that Trump was misled by people like Pompeo into believing China intentionally caused the pandemic, hence why he is now more hawkish on China than before. Hopefully he reverses this position later on.--Geopolitician (talk) 23:18, December 22, 2022 (EST)
Ultimately, fascism- er, I mean, Faucism, seems to be a primary culprit for the coronavirus pandemic. If the CIA was complicit as well, I'd be intrigued to see a bit more supporting evidence. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Friday, 23:23, December 22, 2022 (EST)
The DARPA documents obtained by Project Veritas confirm that Dr. Fauci was the man in charge of the project that developed the virus, and that the version of the virus which caused the pandemic came from the Wuhan lab. However, there is scant evidence as to who was responsible for the virus leaving the lab. And based on the circumstances, my first suspect is the Trump administration neocons (led by Pompeo) for the reasons listed above. My guess as to how it happened is that they arranged for a CIA agent to infiltrate the lab and steal a sample of the virus before releasing it into the open air. Given that the project was a joint Chinese-American venture, such an infiltration wouldn't have been too difficult to pull off. Meanwhile, they allowed some information but not too much information to come out in order to set up both Fauci and the CCP as scapegoats for the actual lab leak, as opposed to merely being the benefactors of the project which created the virus.
By the way, I'm not the only one who suspects this. Sundance at the Conservative Treehouse suspects it too.--Geopolitician (talk) 23:39, December 22, 2022 (EST)
You're talking about Patient Zero, likely Huang Yanling, an employee of the lab. RobSGive Peace a chance 23:59, December 28, 2022 (EST)
Hmm, sounds interesting. So if I understand correctly, Fauci and Daszak led the shady testing in Wuhan, and the CIA, knowing this, despicably unleashed the virus into the world which leads to the scapegoating of a) China, who they want to promote an outright war against, and b) Fauci and Daszak, who they know will be targeted for ultimate blame (instead of the CIA) by right-wingers. So in effect, the CIA had a powerful motive and knew ahead of time how their complicity could hypothetically be covered up completely... —LT (Exodus 23:2) Friday, 23:46, December 22, 2022 (EST)
Exactly.--Geopolitician (talk) 00:06, December 23, 2022 (EST)
Somehow this theory sounds so much more sensible and plausible than any other explanation of the COVID-19 pandemic origins. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Friday, 00:09, December 23, 2022 (EST)
Thank you, for considering the possibility, LT. Not too many people I speak to about it do that.--Geopolitician (talk) 22:43, December 28, 2022 (EST)
Yes, due to mass-suppression of truth via collectivist groupthink/argumentum ad populum and appeal to authority fallacies, a lot of people deem independent, well–thought out analyses as "conspiracy theories" and simply assume that mainstream narratives hold water. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Thursday, 22:49, December 28, 2022 (EST)
Geo's highly confused; he thinks Pompeo, who's a flag waving American with some neocon tendencies, is a psychopath like Bill Gates who gets sadistic pleasure out of trying to figure out a way to exterminate billions of his fellow human beings.
I mean, in both cases, all we got are their words to go on. And Pompeo just isn't in the same league with a sicko like Gates. RobSGive Peace a chance 00:03, December 29, 2022 (EST)
But a lot of neocons are that psychopathic. They believe in balkanizing the Eurasian Heartland countries such as China, Iran, and Russia, and such a policy if successful would result in the deaths of hundreds of millions at least.--Geopolitician (talk) 01:02, December 29, 2022 (EST)
Granted, I'll give you that. It's these neocons getting in bed with Nazis that throws a monkey wrench in a lot of people's thinking.
It's just that you've never reconciled Pompeo's rabid anti-CCP rhetoric with him being in bed with the CCP (other than some vague allegations that the CCP are victims of a CIA plot, which nobody other than you takes seriously). RobSGive Peace a chance 01:10, December 29, 2022 (EST)
I'm not the only one who takes the "CIA did it alone" thesis seriously. If you look above, LT takes it seriously. As you may recall, Sundance takes it seriously. And I'd bet a good number of people in the Ron Paul/Rand Paul wing of the GOP take it seriously, given that Lew Rockwell has endorsed an alternate version of the thesis claiming the virus came from Fort Detrick.[3]--Geopolitician (talk) 15:09, December 31, 2022 (EST)
In response to the accusation that the CIA COVID-19 complicity theory is taken seriously by "nobody," I would indeed like to reiterate my openness towards and appreciation for Geopolitician's analysis. Is the actual truth that plainly obvious and mainstream? Perhaps this verse in the Gospel of Matthew gives a clue:
Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.

—Matthew 7:13

RobSmith, I'd be more inclined to take your word for who is and isn't "confused" if you weren't randomly tossing around Godwin's Law against fellow Conservapedians like you did in the annihilationism debate page against me. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Thursday, 00:09, December 29, 2022 (EST)
If you understood scripture, you'd understand once a Nazi becomes disembodied, they no longer are a Nazi. But that's a different story....
Back to the point: in Geo's anti-neocon crusade, he twists Sundance's words about Pompeo having knowledge to mean Pompeo is complicit, which is not what Sundance said. Pompeo's job was to have knowledge, but he's not under compunction to reveal what he may or may not have known. RobSGive Peace a chance 00:18, December 29, 2022 (EST)

Simple formatting idea for MPL

Perhaps the "Merry Christmas!!!" should be in a fancier font, like Brush Script MT, be in a slightly larger font size, and also be in a nice bright green color. If you replace the existing text with <div style="color:#339966; font-family:Brush Script MT; font-size:300%">Merry [[Christmas|<span style="color:#339966">Christmas</span>]]!!!</div>, this is what it looks like:

Merry Christmas!!!

This way, the wikilink in "Christmas" is still kept, though the color is consistent. What do you think? Also, noticing your edit here, and correct me if I'm wrong, it seems like you're trying to make the color consistent. If it helps, in order to change the color of wikilinks, this format is needed: [[Page title|<span style="color:(color)">Preferred text</span>]]

And of course, Merry Christmas! —LT (Exodus 23:2) Sunday, 00:36, December 25, 2022 (EST)

Weird website glitch

Hi Andy, when I published this edit, I got one of the typical errors, and when I tried pressing "Save page" again, it said that I got into an edit conflict with myself. And apparently the revision corresponding to that edit doesn't show up in Special:RecentChanges. Can you please look into the database about what's going on? If some edits might not show up in SRC, then that can result in potential dangers. The weird thing is that the edit is listed in the page history. yet not for Recent Changes. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Monday, 19:34, December 25, 2022 (EST)

The edit seems fine. Rarely, but sometimes, an edit will go through for me without letting me know. When I try again, it shows an edit conflict. No problem, because the edit was taken the first time.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 20:45, December 25, 2022 (EST)
Ah, alright, interesting. I'm just concerned, given this occurrence, about future scenarios where trolling might, via this type of error, slip past Special:RecentChanges. Also, there's several different type of errors when editing/publishing; sometimes it's 403.shtml, usually it's a loading error, and also, when opening the "edit" part, sometimes the format displays a beta version. Do you have a sense of when all this might be resolved? It's not that terrible to deal with ATM, though hopefully it can be fixed nonetheless. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Monday, 21:28, December 25, 2022 (EST)

RINO Of The Year 2022

Hello Mr. Schlafly,

Who do you think should be Conservative of the Year 2022?

Thank you, --TheNewRight (talk) 12:19, December 27, 2022 (EST)

I'm leaning in favor of Elon Musk. Whom would you pick?--Andy Schlafly (talk) 13:38, December 27, 2022 (EST)
Or did you mean to ask about RINO of the Year, as your heading indicates? That "honor" might be won by Liz Cheney.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 13:39, December 27, 2022 (EST)
Sorry, I just realized I made a mistake. I meant to ask who you think should be RINO of the Year. Sorry about that! Thank you,--TheNewRight (talk) 13:50, December 27, 2022 (EST)
Hello, I think Liz Cheney would be a good choice for RINO of the Year 2022, but I don't think she should get that "honor" as she was RINO of the Year last year. I was leaning towards McConnell as he caved to the Democrats multiple times and supported establishment Republicans over their more conservative opponents. Any thoughts? Thanks!--TheNewRight (talk) 21:12, December 29, 2022 (EST)
This whole idea is somewhat ridiculous, and dilutes the impact of Conservative of the Year. Now trolls just include a Hit List of every Republican under the sun, including MTG cause she supports Kevin McCarthy who supposedly is a RINO cause he supports establishment Republicans cause supposedly establishment Republicans are RINOs. It's nothing but sterile arguments and a waste of time intended to sow division. My two cents. RobSGive Peace a chance 21:18, December 29, 2022 (EST)

Here's a joke you might like

Let's suppose that the four writers of the Gospels are suddenly brought back to life, in the 21st century. One of them gazes around at the world beholding him, rereads the fifth book he wrote, and suddenly has a moment of sorrow, pity, and internal anguish, knowing what will soon unfold. However, he ultimately looks up at the sky and smiles, knowing the ultimate ending.

The other three are in a courtroom, arguing over copyright infringement.

I came up with this joke today, and some of my Christian friends seem to get a kick out of it. I'm also thinking, perhaps Conservapedia should have an official page for creative jokes about Scripture? —LT (Exodus 23:2) Tuesday, 18:48, December 27, 2022 (EST)

Awesome, thanks; here it is! —LT (Exodus 23:2) Wednesday, 19:49, December 27, 2022 (EST)
Ha ha, very nice indeed! The Bible is far more lighthearted than most people realize, in my humble (and humor-welcoming) opinion.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 21:23, December 27, 2022 (EST)
Yes, I agree! There are numerous examples in Scripture which demonstrate God's humorous side. When I first started reading Genesis, I recall that verses 10–20 in Chapter 12 made me laugh since it goes to show how God ultimately looks out after His chosen prophet Abram, who ironically almost reaped what he feared by deviating from honesty, thinking that lying would prevent the outcome of Pharaoh taking his wife. It's my observation that both directly, and through the moral lessons He ensures among his prophets, God's infinite wisdom means an outstanding sense of humor at times. I wish more Christians today wouldn't only portray God as a stern Father bent on punishing sin, since He ultimately wants his saved inheritors of the New Jerusalem to rejoice. —LT (Exodus 23:2) Wednesday, 21:38, December 27, 2022 (EST)
