How about a little humor to start your day?
Trump will be president!
No this is not some post about 2024…..not at all….this is the newest conspiracy theory flying around that Trump will be president again on this day……will he retake the presidency?
Capitol Police are boosting security in response to a far-right conspiracy theory claiming Donald Trump will again become president on Thursday. Some QAnon supporters believed Trump would declare martial law and remain in office on Jan. 20. But “when that didn’t happen, the date was moved from Jan. 20 to March 4,” the original date on which presidents were sworn into office until the passage of the 20th Amendment in 1933, per ABC News. According to the unfounded theory—which some of QAnon’s own leaders have rejected—no president has been legitimate since the passage of an 1871 law “that secretly turned the United States into a corporation,” per USA Today.
“Now why that’s relevant, God knows. But any rate, now they are thinking maybe we should gather again and storm the Capitol on March 4,” Rep. Adam Smith said last month, per Forbes, which notes some QAnon supporters see a major hike in March 4 rates at the Trump International Hotel as validation of some event. Members of Congress were notified that increased personnel would be deployed on Capitol Hill via a Monday bulletin from the House’s acting sergeant-at-arms, Timothy Blodgett, who noted some have described March 4 as the “true Inauguration Day.” But “the significance of this date has reportedly declined amongst various groups in recent days,” Blodgett wrote. He added Capitol Police have “no indication that groups will travel to Washington DC to protest or commit acts of violence.”
More on this piece of crappy conspiracy…..
If you’re a hardcore QAnon believer, you had high hopes for January.
Among other things, you expected Donald Trump to remain president. You expected mass arrests and public executions. You expected an underground cabal of child-trafficking Democrats to finally be captured.
None of those things happened.
Instead, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. So if you’re one of those people — perhaps millions — who were deeply invested in the various QAnon conspiracy theories, the past few weeks likely produced an immense amount of dissonance.
But for the most die-hard QAnon followers, hope springs eternal! The next big prophecy is supposed to unfold on March 4, which had been Inauguration Day before the ratification of the 20th Amendment in 1933 — and the day Trump will gloriously return to power and retake the White House, according to the febrile imaginings of the QAnon movement.
Can you believe this crap?
Of course we can.
The House has decided to take no chances…..better safe than sorry…as they say.
The House of Representatives has canceled its Thursday session over reports of a possible plot by an “identified militia group” to attempt a repeat of the Jan. 6 attack on the US Capitol. One Democratic lawmaker tells the Hill that there is “growing concern about threats to the Capitol and Democratic lawmakers in particular tomorrow.” Votes that had been planned for Thursday have been moved to Wednesday, including a police reform bill named in honor of George Floyd, per USA Today. The Capitol Police said in a Wednesday statement: “We have obtained intelligence that shows a possible plot to breach the Capitol by an identified militia group on Thursday, March 4. Our Department is working with our local, state, and federal partners to stop any threats to the Capitol. We are taking the intelligence seriously.”
According to a far-right conspiracy theory, Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the country’s 19th president Thursday, per Fox News. The fringe theory is based on the belief that the US secretly became a corporation in 1871, making Ulysses S. Grant, the 18th president, the last “real” president of the US. Presidential inaugurations were held on March 4 until 1933, which is why the date is significant to believers of conspiracy theory. There are no reports of the Senate canceling its Thursday session. Democratic Senator Dick Durbin tells USA Today, “In light of what we went through on Jan. 6, it’s understandable that people are concerned,” adding, “I’m not going to second-guess Speaker Pelosi. At this point, Sen. Schumer has not released the same conclusion.”
How stupid can the Trump-ites be?
