Selective outrage and Let's Go Brandon

As to Conway, Julian Assange lived in relative solitary confinement for 7 years in the Ecuador Embassy, as soon as he was moved to that hell hole that replaced the Tower of London a few centuries ago, he had a stroke. As to selective outrage, are you as selectively outraged over Let's Go Brandon vs. the treatment Trump and Trump supporters received over the past 6 years as most all other liberal communist media personalities are? RobSLet's Go Brandon! 03:05, December 30, 2021 (EST)
Joe Biden and Hunter Biden are both traitors who took graft from China.[1] Instead of "Let's go Brandon", the chant "Impeach Joe Biden" should be used. Conservative (talk) 11:14, December 30, 2021 (EST)
@Rob: No, I'm just fascinated by the schoolkid glee many of you lot exhibit in having a code for something normal people would say out loud. Linguistically, it's performing the same function, but somehow you manage to kid yourselves that it's not really swearing. It's like a lass raised on abstinence-only telling herself she's still a virgin as long as her beau only takes her up the arse. ConwayIII (talk) 22:10, December 30, 2021 (EST)
I think you miss the point of it, completely. Biden critics did not invent it - NBC Sports and mainstream media did. And the real joke is MSM making it acceptable for small children to say what conservatives ordinarily would never say in front of their children.
It is not as if we didn't know NBC were bald face liars. The joke is on MSM and idiots who believe anything they say. Biden is just collateral damage. Ask me what I really think. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 01:34, December 31, 2021 (EST)
Do you think it is possible to have a rational debate or discussion, in an election year, with these people? And who, other than MSM, public schools, and Hollywood celebrities, has hypnotized and brainwashed these people with such hate and lack of respect for other people? RobSLet's Go Brandon! 02:12, December 31, 2021 (EST)
Look at yourself, man. You've been tittering like a schoolgirl since the story broke and now it's all apparently the MSM's fault. Take some responsibility for your actions: it amuses you and you like saying it with its full intended meaning. Same for everyone else in the extended right-wing looniverse. Again, though, less spiritually constipated types would just use the plain Anglo-Saxon. ConwayIII (talk) 13:08, December 31, 2021 (EST)
I'm indebted to NBC for allowing me to use their slogan in my signature template. My last signature, "Free Kyle!" didn't have to be changed for more than year as the arc of history bent toward justice. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:18, December 31, 2021 (EST)

AOC trip

AOC trip to Florida prove she is hypocrite by her standards of Covid restriction then to for slamming Senator Ted Cruz for his trip in February. instead to respond her critique, she make dirty claims that Republicans motivated by 'sexual frustrations' --Alex Kosh (talk) 19:27, December 31, 2021 (EST) AOC claims Republicans motivated by 'sexual frustrations' in Twitter rant amid Florida trip controversy

Why was Cruz supposed to stay in Texas, anyway? Was he going to climb up the towers and restore power? As for AOC, the "sexual frustration" line sounds like projection to me. A vacay with her boyfriend in Florida could be just the thing to calm her down. After all, DeSantis certainly knows how to run a state. PeterKa (talk) 01:02, January 1, 2022 (EST)
AOC needs the gospel. All flesh is grass. It flowers today and is cast into the oven tomorrow. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 00:41, January 4, 2022 (EST)

The problem AOC prove she hasnt any standards. she is one who demand mask and vaccine mandatory but she was without mask. also she should apologize to Senator Cruz, because now she did same thing --Alex Kosh (talk) 18:38, January 1, 2022 (EST)

DeSantis has the right spin: "DeSantis: ‘Not Surprised’ Democrats Flee to Florida to ‘Enjoy Life’ without ‘Draconian’ Covid Policies." PeterKa (talk) 23:41, January 3, 2022 (EST)
After the uproar over Sandy Cortez, you'd think other Dems wouldn't be caught dead in Florida: "EXCLUSIVE: 'Masks everywhere. Vacation cancelled.' But not for Eric Swalwell! Democratic congressman follows in AOC's footsteps and goes maskless at posh Miami hotel in mandate-free Florida, days after blaming GOP for 'prolonging' the pandemic."

Why was I blocked?

Yesterday, I was temporarily blocked from editing by the bot for "suspected vandalism". I've never vandalized anything on CP; I've only ever used this website like a normal user would. Was it an accident? Does this happen often? Vince Did 7-14 Christ Is King! 11:04, January 5, 2022 (EST)

You removed 26,000 bytes from the Caitlan Jenner article and Minuteman was too quick on the trigger. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 11:13, January 5, 2022 (EST)
Ohh, okay. Vince Did 7-14 Christ Is King! 14:13, January 5, 2022 (EST)
Minuteman is a bot. Conservative (talk) 20:21, January 5, 2022 (EST)
Tips to avoid autoblock next time: either (A) don't copy paste whole articles from WP & other websites, and/or (B) if given permission to retain some of it contingent upon clean up and editing, don't remove wholesale blocks; remove it gradually in sections. RobSLet's Go Brandon!`
I am just guessing, but I speculate that the more edits you do, the more slack the bot gives you. Usually vandals are guerilla attacks of short duration. Conservative (talk) 22:36, January 5, 2022 (EST)

Jimmy Carter weighs in on January 6

After he was defeated by Ronald Reagan in 1980, Jimmy Carter spent years doing his best to discredit the election. He promoted the theory that Reagan won only by conspiring with the ayatollahs to engineer an "October surprise." So he's a fine one to be talking about respecting the outcome of elections. Here he is in today's NYT: "Jimmy Carter: I fear for our democracy." PeterKa (talk) 21:54, January 5, 2022 (EST)

Jimmy Carter, what a prize. He reminds me of the character Titural in Wagner's Parsifal, who is so old and decrepit they have him boxed up in the grave already before he's dead, who's crying out of the grave while his kingly successor falls flat on his face.

Church of Mary's Rock

Why do you suppose PeterKa removed the capital letter of this church from "Church of Mary's Rock" to "church of Mary's Rock" in the Dome of the Rock article? Was it to test Andy? A "Protestant" User:Yeschiya had already on January 1 started a wiki page called "2022" that called it the 2022nd year of the "Common Era", the erasure that name seemed to represent on Wikipedia being what actually spurred Andy to originate Conservapedia. Was it a taboo formation where he can't stand to see it juxtaposed with buildings in Jerusalem in any other presentation? Was it some sort of revenge defilement? I recently read, though don't have the source handy, an ossuary vessel thought to contain the bones of Jesus' brother James had its inscription erased while in the custody of the city of Jerusalem. It's almost a dehumanization to deny a place name a capital letter, is it not?

By the way, like the blocked user above, I have lost some access, namely to Recent Changes. While inconvenient, it discharges me of certain moral obligations with which I'd just as soon not be encumbered. AbelBanquo (talk) 09:25, January 6, 2022 (EST)

As far as the Church of Mary's Rock goes, it was just a mistake. I fixed it. PeterKa (talk) 22:39, January 6, 2022 (EST)
I wonder though, was it worth it to me? For this and whatever else, I'm a Conservapedia heretic now. AbelBanquo (talk) 01:09, January 7, 2022 (EST)
You should write this kind of thing on the article's talk page, or change it yourself. PeterKa (talk) 01:52, January 7, 2022 (EST)
I've grown very accustomed over the years to people who persistently divert the subject so nothing of importance ever gets talked about. I'd like to think this was my (very) small contribution to combat that. But recall that in the land of the anti-vaxxers, the one-syringed man is king. AbelBanquo (talk) 09:06, January 7, 2022 (EST)

Notice the assymetries of argumentative burden he feels entitled to maintain. I accuse him of making a mean remark, and the burden is on me to give the reason. He denies it and gives no reasons why it seems otherwise. I make a neutral remark, then he actually does make a mean remark and refuses again to give any explanation of either remark.

Instead he leaves "change it yourself" hanging as a non-denial denial that he had any mean intentions. It affirms he had mean intentions, but it doesn't leave any of his fingerprints on the implied disdainfulness of how he characterizes the way the church should be treated, as it doesn't take the form of propositional speech, so it also denies.

Peter fancies himself a spokesman for his interests on the level of Ronald Ziegler, Nixon's Press Secretary during a White House press conference. What is he trying to protect? Has anyone been hostile to him?

There's something else to note here. Stalin had quotas of state enemies nearly every organization had to supply, or their leaders indicated themselves as disloyal.

Everyone knows the story told by Solzhenitsyn of a government group applauding a speech affirming some ideal or policy, where they applauded ten minutes because no one wanted to be the first to stop applauding. Sure enough the first person who stopped applauding and allowed the meeting to continue for everyone was informed upon, arrested and sent to the Gulag.

The larger point is if any group is failing to engage in a moral principle, it's easy to scapegoat the person who points it out. Because not only did he embarrass everyone, but he took part in it as well and can thus be stigmatized as a hypocrite.

I would challenge Peter to rise above a "Stalin" level of group moral improvement.

He seems to take the pessimistic view that moral clarity is bound to portray him as a failure, and that all he can do is take bitter satisfaction that at least he anticipated the blow instead of taking stock to see whether it actually occurred, or it didn't.

Of course, if you dislike the person who provided the moral clarity, it's much easier to allow that clear picture to escape you and proceed to impute shameful motives on the part of the person who you think portrayed you as a failure, like the scapegoat who first pointed out some lack of moral engagement in the group.

Crisis in Kazakhstan

As the US marks the anniversary of the Capitol riot, a potentially serious crisis is emerging in Central Asia. Kazakhstan is being rocked by widespread anti-government protests and riots, and the government appears to be on the verge of being overthrown. Russia has sent troops into Kazakhstan to restore order.[2]--Geopolitician (talk) 14:18, January 6, 2022 (EST)

Looks like the people are pissed off about inflation, and the CIA is trying to exploit the situation. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:36, January 6, 2022 (EST)
Most likely. After all, Kazakhstan is both a Russian ally AND within the "Eurasian Balkans." It must be destablized, so sayeth the Establishment!--Geopolitician (talk) 15:03, January 6, 2022 (EST)
Interesting take by our friends in India. Russia shows US and China who is boss in Central Asia. China has been pushing its neo-colonial Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) in the region, viewed by Moscow as its own sphere of exclusive influence. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 23:10, January 6, 2022 (EST)
Update: It looks like the unrest is actually the result of an ongoing power struggle between the former President (Nursultan Nazarbayev, who was until a few days ago the Chairman of the Security Council) and the incumbent President (Kassym-Jomart Tokayev). According to allies of Tokayev, the protests were peaceful until allies of Nazarbayev paid agitators to cause trouble. If this is true, then it significantly reduces the likelihood of CIA involvement, as Nazarbayev historically has been no friend of the Washington establishment. [3]--Geopolitician (talk) 13:26, January 10, 2022 (EST)
A Nazarbayev/Tokayev conflict could itself be CIA disinformation (as naive and stupid as the CIA track record is). The general consensus of observers is that there was some outside interference, which points to Russia. And the motive is to stem the tide of Belt and Road initiatives in Kazakhstan (I know, Geo, you think Russia and China are allies). Belt and Road certainly flourishes where political corruption is rampant. So it appears Russia is trying to flush out corrupt leaders beholden to China, replace them, and reclaim Kazakhstan as within the Russian sphere of influence. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:53, January 10, 2022 (EST)
China and Russia are only allies because the neocons made it so. China and Russia still harbor deeply-rooted distrust towards each other. The status of Central Asia is one of the sources of that distrust, so it's not out of the realm of possibility that the CCP, the FSB, or both, are somehow involved as well as the CIA.--Geopolitician (talk) 15:16, January 10, 2022 (EST)
I wouldn't be too sure about that. Let's not forget that even as late as the Vietnam War, the Soviets and Chinese STILL allied with each other just to get rid of us from Vietnam a nd ensure Southeast Asia fell to the Communists. I remember hearing about some Vietnam Veterans who distinctly remembered several NVA members who spoke Chinese being among their ranks, and not Vietnamese, and even wore Chinese gear even, and that was DESPITE the USSR being the primary backer of the Vietcong and aside from that, the Sino-Soviet Split having already occurred. Neocons definitely didn't have any role there (Vietnam was a Democrat war at the time.). And they certainly didn't have a role in Putin comparing an anti-Christian psychopath like Lenin to Christian saints, or for that matter comparing the Communist Manifesto to the Bible, or for that matter Lenin's tomb and/or that Karl Marx statue in the main public square of Moscow still being up (and the former was DESPITE it being ruled by a majority that he really needed to be buried as a result of his decaying like any other man). That was ALL on Russia and Putin in particular. And as far as distrust between China and Russia, Communist countries distrusting each other is literally a feature of Communism, dating back at least to Trotsky and Stalin's infighting within the USSR, if not to Lenin's extermination of his fellow Communists known as the Kadets and the Kronstadt sailors, maybe even as far back as General Louis Grignon ordering his troops to slaughter even members of his own forces and allies during the Vendee Massacres just to satiate bloodlust. Heck, they don't even trust their own citizens, hence their appalling human rights records. Pokeria1 (talk) 05:43, January 11, 2022 (EST)
Left to right: Kenes Rakishev, Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, Kazak Prime Minister Karim Massimov.
  • graduated from the Beijing Language and Culture University, the Law School of Wuhan University in Wuhan; in 1991 became Kazak trade rep to China
RobSLet's Go Brandon! 13:20, January 11, 2022 (EST)
So it looks pretty obvious what's happening. Massimov is taking money from the CCP for the Belt and Road, getting the country in debt to the CCP, and paying Biden some of the money for access and influence. Nazarbayev is too old and fading from the scene, and Putin said enoughs enough. Kazakhstan is not going to be indebted to the CCP.
Now, ordinarily people would say this is an aggressive action. However most idiots forget already that the CCP has attacked the world with coronavirus. Time to put China back in its box. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 13:47, January 11, 2022 (EST)
Hunter Biden was the guy who brokered the deals for CCP. So when Massimov is put on trial, there's a chance he could get Epsteined before it all comes out in court. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 18:39, January 11, 2022 (EST)
Apparently, here's a broad outline of what happened: The Biden family/CCP relationship was founded in late 2012 (shortly after the 2012 elections) when Hunter Biden's Rosemont Seneca won a deal to procure $1.5 Billion in assets for the CCP's Belt and Road Initiative.[1]. The Biden family later was assured 10% of the profits. One deal shortly after the merger of Bohai Harvest RST was to buy Kazak oil and gas assets for the CCP. Hunter aranged the purchases with then Kazak prime minister Karim Massimov and his cronies. Massimov gave up the prime ministership in 2017 and became intelligence/security chief (a step up).
In the recent uprising, after longtime boss Nazarbayev retired (Nazarbayev was on the Soviet Politburo in the 1980s when Putin was a low-level KGB officer working the streets of Vienna), Massimov arranged for security forces to abandon buildings where rioters could obtain weapons and eventually took over the Almaty airport. Massimov and others were arrested on high treason charges. At trial, the corrupt transactions brokered by Hunter Biden between Burisma Kazakhstan and the CCP Belt and Road Initiative could come out. Also, Rosemont Seneca investing Massimov and others profits in the United States could also come out. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:07, January 12, 2022 (EST)
One final note: Yes, the photo posted above is quite possibly a fake. However, que sera sera. Putin and the boys generally are not so dumb. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:29, January 12, 2022 (EST)

Ted Cruz destroys his career

Lyin' Ted Cruz is desperately trying to pick up the pieces of his reputation after calling Jan 6 a "violent terrorist attack". He attempted to walk back this lie with an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, but instead was hilariously torn apart by Tucker, who obliterated his political future while simultaneously remaining polite. Vince Did 7-14 Christ Is King! 10:36, January 10, 2022 (EST)

I'm not a Cruz fan either. He ran for President despite being ineligible for the position, and several high-profile figures from his camp went on to join the Trump administration, only to sabotage it from within (I'm looking at you, Steve Bannon, Ezra Cohen-Watnick, and Mark Meadows!). He also is a hardcore neocon, so much that he openly stated that he was willing to confirm Biden's nominees as long as Biden continued warmongering against Russia.
That being said, calling 1/6 terrorism may not be a false statement. It all depends on who did it and why. If it was a false flag operation, then it absolutely was terrorism, because it was intended to create an atmosphere of fear which would be used to justify further government tyranny. But if it wasn't a false flag operation, then we first have to identify the masterminds and their goals. Next, we have to use those facts to determine if the event itself (not to be confused with the actions of individuals who may have acted in terroristic ways on their own accord) won't be easy; even the slightest difference in motivation could affect that conclusion.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:59, January 10, 2022 (EST)
And another thing. Regardless of all the above, it's literally impossible to charge the participants with terrorism, because "domestic terrorism" is not and never has been a federal crime. See here for more info.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:59, January 10, 2022 (EST)
And yet another thing. I don't buy Cruz's argument that attacking cops is terrorism per se. Sure, such crimes can overlap. But I have the impression that Cruz was trying to frame all people who attack cops for any reason are terrorists. Which would make his view on what is terrorism and what isn't pretty warped regardless of whether or not you agree with him on 1/6 itself.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:59, January 10, 2022 (EST)
To further clarify, both the left and the right need to stop calling people who they don't like terrorists, unless they clearly had terroristic intent. That means the left needs to stop labelling all 1/6 participants as terrorists; and that means the right needs to stop labelling everyone who participated in BLM-related violent demonstrations/riots as terrorists. If you're just standing by, you're not a terrorist. And even if you commit a violent act, it's not terrorism per se. It's all about intent, and the individual. Do you, intend to terrorize (hence the word "terrorism") or not?--Geopolitician (talk) 13:18, January 10, 2022 (EST)
Personally, I think you guys are reading a lot into this that isn't there. Cruz was speaking to congressional colleagues about internal debates to beef up the Capitol Police. Nowhere did he call Trump supporters terrorists. In fact, he got on the record the FBI false flag terrorist activity. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:42, January 10, 2022 (EST)
well duh. Can you guys say somebody jumped the gun in trashing Cruz? RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:18, January 13, 2022 (EST)

No wonder they were called Philistines

Christianity Today has a list of "Biblical Archaeology’s Top 10 Discoveries of 2021":

  • The Philistines ate.......bananas.
  • Archaeologists have uncovered an entertainment complex built by Herod in Ashkelon. It was the Vegas of the Holy Land with pagan statues and an odeon. Why did Jesus go to Jerusalem when he could have gone here?
  • One of the largest ancient Egyptians cities ever found was uncovered near Luxor. It was abandoned suddenly. Monotheistic Phaoroh Akhenaten gets the blame. He needed workers for other projects, such as Tell el-Amarna. PeterKa (talk) 12:47, January 10, 2022 (EST)

Project Veritas: Military Documents About Gain of Function Contradict Fauci Testimony Under Oath

This is HUGE.--Geopolitician (talk) 13:02, January 11, 2022 (EST)

The most damning of those military documents is this DARPA memo written by Major Joseph Murphy, USMC, dated August 13, 2021. The very first paragraph of the memo states that (1) COVID-19 was created in the Wuhan lab; (2) its creation was overseen not by the CCP military, but by EcoHealth Alliance (to which Dr. Fauci is directly connected); and (3) the development of the virus was supposed to be the first phase of the project, and the development of a vaccine was supposed to be the second phase. These facts make it clear that the virus was originally an American project, not a Chinese one. However, what still remains unclear is (1) whether the release of the virus was part of the plan all along or was the act of a rogue lab employee; and (2) who the lab employee responsible for the virus' release was acting on behalf of.--Geopolitician (talk) 13:14, January 11, 2022 (EST)
While Project Veritas itself does not attempt to answer those unresolved questions, Sundance at Conservative Treehouse does (see here), and concludes that the release of the virus was most likely the result of a conspiracy between rogue factions of the US government, who seem to have wanted three things to come out of the pandemic: (1) Trump's ouster; (2) a Cold War with China; and (3) an excuse for more funding of the military-industrial complex. Sundance particularly singles out Mike Pompeo as being one of the top conspirators, and also singles out John Ratcliffe as being instrumental in the subsequent cover-up.--Geopolitician (talk) 13:21, January 11, 2022 (EST)
We're going to need a Trusted News Initiative article right away.RobSLet's Go Brandon! 14:45, January 11, 2022 (EST)
Ok, let's clarify some facts:
  • The Pentagon IG report puts the official seal of approval on facts and a narrative that has been known and is available in open source for some time;
  • The IG report was leaked by Senate Republicans in advance of today's hearing with Dr. Fauci; Project Veritas was the conduit for the leak and given enough time to investigate and contact Major Murphy;
  • The report confirms that Fauci defied the Obama administration's 2014 ban on gain of function research and farmed it out to the WIV through Daszak; the ban was lifted four days after the Oval Office meeting attended by Obama, Biden, Susan Rice, John Brennan, Jim Comey and Sally Yates discussing how to coverup Obama's illegal domestic spying, and 3 days before Comey and Yates signed off on the FISA renewal to wiretap Trump after he took office. It was that same day Fauci & Ron Klain vowed Trump would suffer a pandemic.
  • So something should be said about Fauci defying Obama's ban: a 2014 scientific paper by Shi Zhengli announced a breakthrough in gain of function. The reaction in much of the scientific community was horrifying, so Obama didn't have much choice but to ban it. The question of complicity between Fauci and Obama is something we'll likely never know, but it is curious how eleven days before Trump takes office, Obama decides to throw caution to the wind and Fauci brags about. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 19:51, January 11, 2022 (EST)
The Murphy memo confirms that COVID was the product an American project. Combine that with the actions and statements you cited above, and with the fact that by fall 2019 the Trump administration foreign policy team was dominated by neocons like Bolton and Pompeo, and one ought to conclude that it’s more likely than not that our own government really was the mastermind of the pandemic, and that the CCP is being scapegoated.--Geopolitician (talk) 20:06, January 11, 2022 (EST)
I wouldn't frame it that way. It was a joint US/CCP project. DARPA is a weapons development project that often produces spinoff consumer technologies. DARPA rejected funding gain of function for either weapons or medical research. Fauci secretly continued it, in his words, "the knowledge to be gained is worth the risks." RobSLet's Go Brandon! 20:34, January 11, 2022 (EST)

I see a bad moon rising for Democrats. I see trouble on the way.

The betting odds that former President Donald Trump will win the 2024 election have surged in the past year, pushing him into the lead over President Joe Biden — and possible GOP primary challengers. The political betting “intelligence” site U.S. Bookies has Trump as a 3-1 favorite in 2024, up from the 10-1 odds after he left the White House nearly a year ago. [4]

The entire purpose of the J6 panel, in collusion with the DOJ and MSM, is bring the full weight of the US govt against Trump in 2024 and the GOP in the 2022 Midterms. Those allegations must be addressed. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 03:45, January 12, 2022 (EST)
That the House will go Republican in 2022 is a no brainer. But that won't help unless the Senate goes Republican as well. Pollster Douglas Schoen ran the numbers in yesterday's Wall Street Journal: "If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option." Is there anyone who polls worse? But they have no other options. It's either Hillary or Sandy Cortez. PeterKa (talk) 07:40, January 12, 2022 (EST)

What leads to a coup?

All the talk of a possible coup following the next election has led me to think of Chile. This country was one of Latin America's most stable democracies until the Marxist policies of President Salvador Allende provoked a coup in 1973. Allende was never a popular leader. He had been elected with only 35 percent of the vote in a three-way race. He boosted wages even as the price of copper, Chile's main export, dropped. Inflation zoomed from 33 percent in 1970 to 433 percent in 1973.

Chile's response was strongly gendered. Working-class men saw their wages increase while the women did the shopping and focused on price increases. They banged their pots at a "March of the Empty Pots" and worried that their children would be sent to Cuba for indoctrination.

In the March 1973 midterms, the conservative parties campaigned to impeach Allende. Although they received 57 percent of the vote, they fell short of the level required to remove a president from office. In August, wives of Chilean officers staged a protest in front of the home of Commander-in-Chief Carlos Prats and demanded that he restore order. Prats resigned and was replaced with Augusto Pinochet, who staged a coup against Allende two weeks later. At the time, Chileans figured Pinochet would allow the freshly elected parliament to make policy and the coup was quite popular. PeterKa (talk) 11:00, January 12, 2022 (EST)

While inflation can cause otherwise normal people to think murderous thoughts, the unique thing about the U.S. Democrat party historically is regarding inflation as some sort of accomplishment to be proud of. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 12:33, January 12, 2022 (EST)

Really Rob? We're supposed to believe this is a reference to anyone but me for timidly writing brief bits of info that exculpated or attenuated the Nazi role from certain historical acts, for which Andy then reneged on my having a (functional) sockpuppet account because he wrongly interpreted as "political" or "religious" my daring to notice suspiciously retaliatory-looking actions here?

Then why was I seconded by Jewish conservative David Cole of Taki's Magazine on January 11, specifically echoing the idea of Communist involvement in German politics?

The Curious Case of the Barking Nazi
“You need to view things with clarity not just because you want to know the facts, but because you can use what you learn.”
So you invite a Covid “mRNA scientist” on your show and the segment that goes viral involves not science but history.
How the hell does that happen?
Last week, when Joe Rogan hosted social media exile Dr. Robert Malone, the phrase that rightists came away repeating like Pollys wanting crackers was “mass formation psychosis” (MFP).
The term went so viral the AP fact-checked it (yes, the AP fact-checks theories now. Please do CRT next).
Malone invoked MFP to explain public manipulability during the pandemic. MFP, he said, “comes from European intellectual inquiry into what the heck happened in Germany in the ’20s and ’30s” when “a very intelligent, highly educated population went barking mad” because people had “free-floating anxiety and a sense that things don’t make sense” and “their attention was focused by a leader on one small point, just like hypnosis.” Thus “they literally became hypnotized and could be led anywhere,” so they attacked “the other [Jews]” because Hitler told them to.
Hitler laser-focused a hypnotized, anxiety-ridden people on the Jews, and a highly educated population went “barking mad.”
Except that’s just not how it went down. Malone was repeating a bad Facebook meme (“Ever wondered how the Germans blindly followed a madman and killed six million Jews? Now you know! Please like & share”).
By 1930, Germans had plenty of reasons to be “anxious.” Economic collapse (exacerbated by what was seen as oppressive post-WWI penalties), political corruption, rampant unemployment and poverty, Soviet expansion, and a fear of fifth columnists (inconvenient fact: Communists from within—led by Jews—had formed a short-lived dictatorship in Bavaria 1918–1919). The Nazi platform spoke to those concerns: national self-determination, old-age insurance, equal rights and guaranteed education regardless of income, the abrogation of Versailles, the end of “big-box stores” in favor of local merchants, a prohibition on media ownership by foreigners, an end to political cronyism, and the abolition of four widely despised things—unearned income, war profiteering, child labor, and land speculation.
Parts of the Nazi platform were indeed anti-Jewish. Jews would be denied citizenship, and any foreigners who entered Germany after 1914 would be expelled. But taking that along with the other policies outlined above, a German didn’t have to be “barking mad” to vote for the party. It doesn’t mean the Nazis were good, or that they were sincere about the things they claimed to advocate (especially that “political cronyism” thing). It just means it wasn’t a “barking mad” platform.
And even still, the Nazis won in 1932 with pluralities, not majorities. So it was never a matter of “all Germans” lining up like hypnotized automatons.
On top of that, as historian Ian Kershaw has noted, election-era Hitler significantly downplayed the anti-Jewish angle. By 1930, he “seldom spoke explicitly of Jews.” That point is echoed by Hebrew University’s Oded Heilbronner in his essay “Where Did Nazi Anti-Semitism Disappear To?” (Yad Vashem Studies, volume XXI).
As I’ve previously noted, as per Professor William Rubinstein’s The Myth of Rescue, over 16,000 Jews who fled Germany in 1933 returned the next year.
Hitler would further relax the anti-Jewish shtick for the 1936 Olympics.
In Political Violence Under the Swastika: 581 Early Nazis, Professor Peter Merkl studied the history of every foundational Nazi. He found that 33.3% of them showed no interest in anti-Semitism, 14.3% expressed “mild verbal clichés” regarding Jews, 19.1% displayed “moderate” disdain for Jewish cultural influence in Germany, while only 12.9% advocated “violent countermeasures” against Jews.
So no, Hitler didn’t bark his way to power with a bunch of mad barkers who hypnotized the masses with barking, turning them into barking mad barkers who barked at Jews. It was a gradual process that began with a platform that contained at least a few things every damned one of you would advocate, remained fairly stable until Kristallnacht in November 1938 (when Jews started thinking, “This shit’s gettin’ out of hand”), but stayed at “Jim Crow Mississippi”-level bad until 1941 when Hitler launched a war of extermination in the East in which “the rules” were declared null and void. And even then, the Nazis farmed out a lot of the Jew-killing to barkier people like Ukrainians and Estonians. The mass murder of Jews did not take place in Germany proper (indeed, in his infamous Posen speech, Himmler slammed the German people for not being barking mad enough to get behind Jew-extermination).
So what’s my point, beyond trying to appeal to the dog demographic by saying “bark” a hundred times (to all my new canine readers, Who’s a good boy? Who’s a good boy? You are! You are!)? When you rely on stale clichés like “Hitler hyp-mo-tized the Germans who went mad and killed the Jews,” you miss out on understanding the actual mechanics of how these things happen. You rob yourself of the ability to comprehend.
Lucidity is all the right has. The right doesn’t have the Ivy League, the teachers’ unions, Big Tech, the newspapers, TV networks, movie studios, A-list actors and musicians, and all the other vessels through which leftists promulgate their nonsensical ideas about race, crime, gender, economics, etc. With the exception of the dolts on Fox, the right doesn’t control the arms of propaganda, so go the opposite route, and appeal to working-class voters by not propagandizing them but rather acknowledging reality.
Lucidity: seeing things clearly for what they are. That’s all you got, folks. You lose that, you’re finished. The right’s greatest foe isn’t the left but the forces within—Lin Wood, Sidney Powell, Q, and Trump himself—that try to push you away from lucidity.
Why do you think I hector you guys about the pervasive, impossible-to-kill rightist myth that Beverly Hills is a “leftist city” full of “left-wing celebrities”? No matter how many times I try to cure you of that idiocy, I fail (as I point out again and again, Beverly Hills is generally red. The main precincts went for Trump in 2016 and 2020, and you’re as likely to find “celebrities” in Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Los Feliz, and the Hollywood Hills as in BH; my neighbors are doctors, orthodontists, and attorneys).
The night before Christmas Eve, rumors spread on Twitter that BLM was doing “smash and grab” looting throughout Beverly Hills. Claremont Institute supertard Jeremy Carl tweeted “Couldn’t happen to a more deserving bunch” (dozens of rightists echoed his comment in the thread). I sent Carl a purposely rude email because I’m through being kind to dumbasses, and, to my surprise, he replied that he’s a reader of mine. He’s read my work, but he dismisses Beverly Hills red voters because they’re just Jews mindlessly supporting Trump’s “Israel policies.” The “vulgar” BH locals are not “conservative”; they’re “culturally corrosive” degenerates who corrupt America via “Hollywood.”
Hey, I found a mad barker! Who’s a good boy? Me!
In fact, what happened on Christmas Eve-Eve was that a small group of BLM loons conducted a hugely annoying but nevertheless legal protest on Rodeo Drive. The BHPD was there in force and kept everything orderly, because the protesters knew that in Beverly Hills blacks will get arrested if they break the law.
There were two ways to look at what happened that night: lucidly (“Here’s a good example of how even in a blue county a generally red oasis with a strong PD can maintain law and order while still protecting constitutional rights”), or retardedly (“BLM smashed up Beverly Hills and hooray ’cuz them left-wing deeegenerate Jew Hollyweird akter pedos got it comin’!”).
I can best define what I mean by “lucid” by pointing to Jeremy Carl as the opposite (like, if someone asks, “What is light?” put them in a dark room and say, “Not this”). Along with misrepresenting what happened in BH on the 23rd and misrepresenting the occupations and political leanings of the residents, Carl also refuses to differentiate between Jewish communities—the conservative-leaning Persians and Orthodox (who are not “vulgar Hollywood”) vs. your standard secular Ashkenazi Woody Allens (there’s yer vulgar Hollywood). He claims that the pro-Trumpism of the large BH precincts is due to “Israel,” while ignoring the other conservative victories in those precincts that had nothing to do with Israel (the Newsom recall, anti–affirmative action, anti–”progressive prosecution”).
Worse still, Carl, in his email to me, refused to differentiate between BH precincts, claiming that because some of them went Dem, all of BH is therefore leftist, an asinine notion because like any sizable city BH has different regions, and it pays to understand those differences and how they play out politically.
Hell, if you really wanna get in the weeds, you can examine how slope-a-dope Ted Lieu’s district (which includes BH) was Frankensteined to tie BH to leftist Malibu (thirty miles away) while cutting it off from the Orthodox Pico-Robertson neighborhoods right across the street.
And by studying those specifics, you’d actually learn something about gerrymandering that maybe can come in handy (heaven forbid).
That’s why relying on comfortable clichés and memes, be it “Nazi barkers” or “Beverly Hills is leftist Hollywood,” is dangerously harmful. It blinds you to specifics. Specific events, specific causes, specific demographics, specific regions. You need to view things with clarity not just because you want to know the facts, but because you can use what you learn. The smart leftists, like Soros, brag about doing this. Soros surrogates boast about how, simultaneously, they’d sell his poisonous no-prosecution/decarceration programs by going into black neighborhoods and saying, “We’ze freein’ yo people,” and going into redder white neighborhoods saying, “We’re saving your tax money.”
Leftists may speak in simplistic clichés publicly, but the clever ones—the ones who have been kicking your ass at the ballot box the past few years—privately learn specifics and make use of that knowledge to their advantage.
Rightists have every reason to embrace lucidity, yet they seem bizarrely hesitant. Last week my friend Ann Coulter went on a wonderful Twitter tear (here and here) about idiot GOPs who don’t grasp the distinction between “Hispanic” communities (i.e., Cubans vs. Guatemalans).
Exactly. You learn the specifics if you want to win. You ignore the specifics if you’re just figuratively jacking off. Like if you have zero concern for your supposed “cause,” and zero respect for your readers.
And speaking of Jeremy Carl, one last thing. In a March 2019 AmGreatness piece, Carl wrote about Hollywood’s “overwhelming dominance by whites.”
Yeah, “whites.” Lotsa Lutheran Nebraska farmers running those movie studios.
When emailing his intellectual better, Carl had no problem being specific (invoking Jews and Israel to wave away deep-red BH precincts). But he sees his readers as dullwit nosepickers, so to them he avoids demographic specifics, because he’s just trying to get likes & shares, like every writer and politico on the right who relies on generalizations and oft-repeated-but-never-questioned memes.
Don’t follow those folks; they won’t lead anywhere good.
Now, I started this piece talking about Dr. Malone. And next week I’ll continue with an examination of how his “barking” boilerplate didn’t just get our current predicament wrong, but backwards.

Maybe I should use a crassly-stereotyped black dialect or vulgarity like Cole does to assure myself of having enough personal authenticity in the form of resentment to speak on these matters!

You're forgetting that many Eastern European nations had little custom "national socialisms" of their own private nationalisms, and I didn't even bother to point out in the articles I edited that Poland national socialism foolishly avoided an alliance with Germany to defend against Bolshevism because of popular politics in that country.

So once again, I undo some revisionism, like I briefly did when I personally commented here on homosexual marriage not being a foregone conclusion, interfering then with Andy's chess game where he's supportive of non-conservative Greenwald Jim Hoft, and because it somehow interferes again, Conservapedia turns into get-Vargas-pedia.

So together with Greenwald Jim Hoft everybody's buddy-buddy again, and I get left holding the bag of ugly suspicions. It's a good thing I don't need to depend on Jewish conservative dissidents like David Cole to carry out ad hoc rescues of my reputation, simply by happening to possess a peculiar combination of personal characteristics while retelling what are almost commonplaces, because there aren't that many to go around!

Q. How do you prevent me from pompously comparing myself to dissidents like David Cole, banned from Amazon, and who already pompously italicizes every other word, or Dr. Robert Malone?

Nice speech in defense of Hitler and Nazis there. What made the German people go barking mad were the Progressive elements in the Nazi platform, eugenics being only one such element, among others. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 22:26, January 14, 2022 (EST)
Robert Barnes recently said: [5]
"Frankly this started in Britain in the U.S., the ideas for eugenics and social Darwinism were British and American ideas. And you know the Nazis always cited British and American authorities. Particularly like, I'm waiting for somebody in one of these vaccine mandate cases that gets up to Scotus to just go after them on this issue, to say the last time you got high and mighty on when you thought public health authorities should be completely deferred to was when you said three generations of imbeciles was enough and ordered forced sterilizations that became the law of the land for 50 years, that led to forced sterilizations of poor women all across the country. So maybe you should be a little bit more careful before you get up on your high horse about what you think medicine is. Before you take off that black robe and put on that white lab coat and pretend that your professional class compadres are the ones who should dictate and direct public health policy in America because you have a long history of being atrocious at it, abominable at it. The ideas for eugenics came from America. The Nazis copied American laws and American policies and American principles. And their number one source of authority was the Supreme Court of the United States."

Fauci lied about lab leak to avoid upsetting China

A new batch of Fauci email has been released under the Freedom of Information Act. It turns out that Fauci and other Natonal Institutes of Health scientists thought from the beginning that covid most likely originated as a lab leak. They engaged in a cover up, either to please China or to get back at Trump. See "Scientists believed Covid leaked from Wuhan lab - but feared debate could hurt ‘international harmony'." Does the NIH have its own foreign policy now?

Why would they care about China's feelings? China is always angry. One of the released emails suggests another possibility. It says that the NIH should not, “mention a lab origin as that will just add fuel to the conspiracists." In other words, they wanted to get back at Trump and Republicans.

NIH didn't suspect genetic engineering, but rather “selection during passage.” What's that? "Passage refers to the number of times a cell/viral culture has been harvested and then allowed to replicate in another identical or different environment."

The next Republican president needs to do a thorough purge of NIH and CDC traitors and replace them with scientists who support the Great Barrington declaration, a group Fauci was plotting to discredit, according to these emails. PeterKa (talk) 23:17, January 12, 2022 (EST)

The left/liberals very often engage in absurd behavior. Hundreds of thousands of Americans might have been lost due to Fauci and friends funding gain of function research in China. Fauci should have been fired long ago. I think Trump was afraid of firing Fauci/Collins due to the political backlash. Fauci has been a mixed bag in terms of his advice to the general public. He needs to be replaced with someone more trustworthy. The whole notion of paying a high profile health official $400,000+ a year whose untrustworthy during a pandemic is totally absured. There needs to be someone more trustworthy in his position.
Biden is mishandling this pandemic. He could be doing a much better job (testing, therapeutics, replacing Fauci, etc.). Conservative (talk) 02:32, January 13, 2022 (EST)
Spiked has a good article on this: "The emails unveiled this week reveal no good scientific reason at all for why these leading virologists changed their minds and became deniers rather than believers in even the remote possibility of a lab leak, all in just a few days in February 2020." Disclosing that the epidemic was likely the result of a lab leak would be, ‘doing great potential harm to science and international harmony,' according to an email by Francis Collins. Who needs a secretary of state when the director of the NIH knows what to do about China? PeterKa (talk) 14:35, January 13, 2022 (EST)
I think "science" just shot itself in the foot bigtime for the next generation. "Science" evidently can't tell the difference between nature and a bioweapon attack. And "science" sure thinks the rest of us are stupid. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 15:10, January 13, 2022 (EST)
We look to the NIH for medical expertise. But these emails expose them as political actors with cynical motives. Why did Fauci change his mind about masks? There was almost certainly no science behind that decision either. PeterKa (talk) 22:00, January 13, 2022 (EST)
I think Fauci forms his scientific considerations by watching The View and Today Show. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 23:39, January 13, 2022 (EST)

Democrats/liberals/leftists/anti-Trumpers/legacy media can't get traction on January 6 issue

After the Eric Snowden debacle, Trump/Russia collusion debacle, Peter Strzok/James Comey/FBI idiocy and the history of the untrusty behavior of the mainstream, liberal press, the Democrats/liberals/leftists/anti-Trumpers/legacy media can't get traction on January 6 issue due to the lack of trust they now have.

Right-wingers are throwing the Ray Epps possibly being an FBI infiltrator controversy wrench in the works.

In a way, it reminds me of the Allied forces getting bogged down in the hedgerows post D-Day invasion. By that I mean people running into unexpected problems.

In a partisan/polarized America with a public that has a short memory and with the Biden administration having so many problems (Inflation, southern USA border, supply chain, Afghanistan, etc.), it looks like the Democrats will not get traction/momentum on the January 6 issue before the midterms. Conservative (talk) 03:07, January 13, 2022 (EST)

The FBI needs to be more accountable/transparent to the USA public. Frankly, it's ridiculous that they can merely essentially say "We will not say if we had undercover instigators". It is against the law for law enforcement to do entrapment to an individual. Therefore, it follows that they shouldn't be able to do that with a crowd.
The journalist Glen Greenwald says that in tyrannical police states they collect huge amounts of data on a citizen or citizens, but the citizens know little about what the government is doing. There should be more citizen/government oversight on what the FBI/CIA does.
Lastly, given J. Edgar Hoover's atrocious behavior, the J. Edgar Hoover government building needs to be renamed. Conservative (talk) 06:48, January 13, 2022 (EST)
It's also ridiculous that Hillary Clinton, Hunter Biden and Joe Biden are apparently going to get off scot-free despite being criminals. Justice is not impartial (blind) in the USA. Frankly, it is similar to what Putin gets away with in terms of graft. The USA is becoming like a banana republic in terms of corruption when it comes to the Democrats. Conservative (talk) 06:53, January 13, 2022 (EST)
Why are you lumping together today's FBI with J. Edgar Hoover? Didn't you know J. Edgar Hoover saved us from Stalin's spies while the Democrats were launching investigations into Joe McCarthy? AbelBanquo (talk) 11:44, January 15, 2022 (EST)
He abused his power. General Douglas MacArthur did some good things, but when your pride causes you to abuse your power, you have to be corrected so Truman fired him. Nobody should be above the law. Conservative (talk) 11:51, January 15, 2022 (EST)
Lol, I can answer this riposte with a good-natured peevishness. If Hoover hadn't saved the State Department from subversion, before very long there'd've been no United States Government power of any kind to use, much less abuse! I think we should construct a fresh FBI building, name that after Hoover too and staff it with the field officers Mueller fired to consolidate liberal power in Washington D.C.!

Democrat game plan

Before the 2022 midterms, the Pelosi Panel will declare the J6 false flag attack an "insurrection", and Marc Elias will move to have GOP members of Congress removed and candidates disqualified. [6] RobSLet's Go Brandon! 19:43, December 23, 2021 (EST)

If they can somehow retain control of congress in 2022, the Dems can decertify Republican electors in 2024. They have already decided that a reasonable explanation for any Republican victory is "voter suppression." See "Presidential historian and former Biden speechwriter Jon Meacham claims White House run by Trump in 2024 will create constitutional crisis because 'whatever happens, he will claim he won' - as Dems press voting rights legislation."
Could the Supreme Court head off a coup? Americans seem to like the current court, which has a 6-3 conservative majority. It's reputation has rebounded in the last three months, that is to say, since the Texas abortion case. Gallup has proclaimed Justice John Roberts America's most admired political figure and the only one with bipartisan support.[7] Gallup was once the most admired pollster. Their presidential polling numbers were way off several times in a row, so they no longer attempt to predict elections. PeterKa (talk) 09:58, December 29, 2021 (EST)
The vaccine mandate question will be heard shortly, and should result in a quick decision. That will be a marked slap down on federal power, which Biden already backed off on over the weekend prolly cause he's anticipating a loss.

It's becoming increasingly obvious what the gameplan to derail a second term for Trump is: Sometime prior to primary season 2024, the Biden DOJ will attempt to tie up Trump in the courts with bogus insurrection charges. [8] RobSLet's Go Brandon! 20:00, January 9, 2022 (EST)
Yep, the J6 committee is trying to put together a criminal referral against Trump to Garland's DOJ. [9] The theory being, the 14th Amendment can bar Trump from office (as Marc Elias alleged last month). From Punchbowl:
Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Scott Perry (R-Pa.) have now both told the Jan. 6 committee that they won’t voluntarily sit for interviews....The GOP pair’s refusal presents Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.), the select committee chair, and the House Democratic leadership with some tough decisions to make. Do they subpoena the Republicans and attempt to compel their testimony? What if the GOP lawmakers refuse to comply with those subpoenas? Would Democrats then initiate contempt proceedings? Or would the select committee have to go to court first just to issue the subpoena to Jordan or Perry? Thompson has said the panel is still reviewing whether it has the legal authority to do so. It would be an unprecedented step, however, and opens up some very sticky legal questions for this and future Congresses.
Another big question – What happens with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, who also talked to Trump on Jan. 6? Is the select committee going to invite him to testify, and if so, when? And what happens when he says no as well? If GOP lawmakers don’t end up testifying – coupled with other witnesses' refusal to cooperate – it could potentially leave gaps in the select committee’s final report on the events of Jan. 6. The panel has interviewed hundreds of witnesses so far and uncovered extensive new evidence, yet these Republicans have critical information on what the former president was doing and saying that day. This information could be especially important if the panel ever puts together a criminal referral to the Justice Department on Trump.
[...] If the panel eventually seeks to have Trump testify, what happens when he refuses? Does Trump get a subpoena too? And a criminal referral if he doesn’t, as Mark Meadows, Trump’s former chief of staff has faced? Jordan’s Sunday night letter also raises a serious concern, one that may make constitutional or legal experts pause. Pay attention to this quote: “Your attempt to pry into the deliberative process informing a Member about legislative matters before the House is an outrageous abuse of the Select Committee’s authority. This unprecedented action served no legitimate legislative purpose and would set a dangerous precedent for future Congresses.” This sounds like Jordan is asserting his constitutional privilege under the “Speech or Debate Clause,” which protects lawmakers and staffers from questioning about legislative activity. But can a member assert the Speech or Debate privilege against Congress?
[...] the Ohio Republican was among those pushing a legal theory that Vice President Mike Pence had the authority to block certification of Joe Biden’s Electoral College victory. The gist of Jordan’s argument here is basically “So what?” Congress’ certification of the Electoral College is required by law. As a member of Congress, Jordan has a right to be involved in any debate tied to those congressional proceedings. Jordan – who spoke to Trump on Jan. 6 – also notes he had no role in the security posture for the Capitol that day. Jordan, in fact, was in the House chamber during the attack.
[...] So this a pivotal moment for the select committee’s probe.
Comment: "no legitimate legislative purpose." This is the language of SCOTUS that barred Congress from going on a fishing expedition of Trump's taxes. IOWs, Congress would have to be considering new legislation on tax reform to justify subpoenas to look at Trump's taxes. And they couldn't just single out one man to look at his taxes, either. They have to get a representative sample of a whole class of income earners. So pay attention (or better yet ignore) how these beltway propaganda exercises are reported.

I don't see where it warrants any big earth shattering news.

And the article even has a subheading, "Democrats Usually Hold an Advantage, and Did So in 2021". So I don't see where there is any longterm changes here or anything to gloat about.

Don't let this Gallup Poll fool you. There is no "14 point swing" in allegiances. All it means is fewer people will admit to a pollster that they are Democrats and a few more people will publicly admit they are Republicans. So Republicans are louder and Democrats are more soft spoken. With marginal adjustments, the underlying numbers are still in place. This sort of fake news offering false hope you need to be on the lookout for. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 04:23, January 19, 2022 (EST)
And the "14%", roughly one in six of people either being more courageous to speak up or ashamed making them quiet, is too marginal to hang your hat on. 04:29, January 19, 2022 (EST)

Latin America goes Pentecostal

In 1995, Latin America was 80 percent Catholic. In 2018, it was 59 percent. In Central America, the shift is especially dramatic. Honduras is now around 30 percent Catholic. See "Why the Catholic Church Is Losing Latin America." PeterKa (talk) 11:50, January 16, 2022 (EST)

There is a lot of immigration, both legal and legal, into the USA from Latin America. Latin America is very religious (see: Atheism and Latino Americans).
According to the 2019 edition of the Encyclopedia of Latin American Religions
The irreligious population are slowly, but steadily, increasing in size in Latin America. While in every country they constitute a minority, in some countries, they have gained considerable weight. This has occurred both in countries with higher levels of socioeconomic development – such as Chile (15.8%) and Uruguay (37.1%) – as well as in less developed ones such as El Salvador (12.1%) and Honduras (10.5%). The far majority of irreligious Latin American are religious “nones” who declare believing in a supreme entity but do not belong to religious groups. Atheism and agnosticism, instead, are a rare phenomenon, mostly restricted to elite segments.[10]
According to British author Edward Dutton, religious people are more likely to migrate (there are various reasons postulated, but it remains unclear why this is so).[11]See also: Religion and migration
By 2043, secularization will peak in the USA (just like it did in Europe), see: Secularism, Fundamentalism, or Catholicism? The Religious Composition of the United States to 2043 and American atheism and European desecularization in the 21st century and Desecularization

Comment on Biden presser

Like some of you, I too suffered through the 2 hour 38 minute ordeal of Biden's press conference (I could have been watching a performance of Rienzi). We've heard in the past how Fidel Castro used to make 5 hour speeches, or how Khrushchev's Secret Speech was 6 hours long. Now we have some insight on what really was happening.

In socialist societies, when the Dear Leader faces a crisis of confidence among adherents, he stands before them in one of these marathon sessions and attempts to justify failings and persuade them to keep the faith and continue following his leadership. IOWs, there is some interplay between the speaker and the audience of select individuals. Castro's marathon speeches weren't just monologues and diktats, they were given to be persuasive and restore confidence among the faithful, with some interaction between the speaker and hearers to gauge how the message was being received.

When asked about the midterm, Biden said, "Oh, yeah, I think it could easily be illegitimate ... The increase in the prospect of being illegitimate is in proportion to not being able to get these reforms passed." So if he doesn't get the election law he wants, he could declare the midterm illegitimate? Like he cares whether voters have to show photo ID or not. PeterKa (talk) 13:28, January 21, 2022 (EST)
That statement sounds treasonous to me and the seeds of incitement to insurrection. RobSLet's Go Brandon! 16:19, January 21, 2022 (EST)
I think the term you seek is "projection" (Dems are really good at that, especially with the media doing their dirty work). Quidam65 (talk) 20:23, January 21, 2022 (EST)
Clyburn said something similar. So it's a talking point, not a gaffe. From a Democrat point of view, the problem with the upcoming midterms is not so much the election law that they are held under, but the fact that Republicans are likely to win. "Each House shall be the Judge of the Elections, Returns and Qualifications of its own Members," according to the Constitution. PeterKa (talk) 23:16, January 21, 2022 (EST)
I look forward to seeing Adam Schiff striped of his committee assignments, possibly a few others (Swallowswell, Tlaib, Omar, AOC). RobSLet's Go Brandon! 23:35, January 21, 2022 (EST)

Hunter: 'The Russians have videos of me doing crazy f***ing sex!'

Once upon a time, there were these things called scandals. Now it seems we have entered a post-scandal age: "Hunter Biden is seen in unearthed footage telling prostitute that Russian drug dealers stole ANOTHER of his laptops." I feel for Hunter, man. There is nothing worse than when your dealer steals your laptop. PeterKa (talk) 20:50, January 26, 2022 (EST)
