Closing Thought–04Oct21

I have read most of the conspiracies around the attacks of 9/11….I like to see just how far these idiots will go down that rabbit hole.

Over this pat weekend I read yet another outrageous conspiracy….this one by one of Trump’s babbling buffoons….Lin Wood……

A leading face of the effort to overturn the 2020 election results, attorney and Donald Trump loyalist Lin Wood put a different conspiracy theory forward in a clip going viral on Twitter when he suggested the planes that hit the World Trade Center towers on 9/11 were CGI and a missile was fired at the Pentagon as part of a plot to bring down a building containing financial records of “missing” trillions.

The missing money conspiracy theory is an old saw that the government lost a ton of money somehow, or that it was stolen as Wood put it, and that 9/11 covered it up. In light of the new spending bills before Congress, the idea that anyone would blow up buildings over $3 trillion dollars is practically quaint.

The money was neither stolen nor missing, of course. But Lin Wood took it to the next level anyway, saying that it was “a missile” that hit the Pentagon and suggesting the planes that hit the towers were computer graphics.

MAGA Attorney Lin Wood Tells Silent Crowd That 9/11 Was a Cover-Up Involving CGI and Missiles: ‘We Got Played’

These toads make me smile….but sadly too many mental midgets take these stupid conspiracies literally.

Just how far will these people go down that rabbit hole?

A New Conspiracy?

There are lots of moronic conspiracies out there….some are even credible….like the 9/11 conspiracy, the death of Kennedy, the Moon Landing, etc……a case can be made that they are at least believable…..

The events of 06 January have spawned a few….but I read an article that could be the beginning of a brand new story line for some to grasp and expand on……

Are you on the edge of your seat with anticipation?

The Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol by Donald Trump’s followers is the most documented crime scene in history.

On that day, Trump and his agents attempted to overthrow American democracy. We now know his conspiracy to nullify the results of the 2020 election was well underway. 

The world watched as Trump’s attack force, possessed by white rage and Christian nationalist fervor, and fueled by a willingness to kill and die for Trump in the name of “patriotism,” viciously attacked police who were protecting the Capitol and the people inside. A core group of Trump’s attack force acted with military precision as they breached the Capitol building’s defenses.  

Once inside, Trump’s attack force continued to battle with police while running amok and chanting “Hang Mike Pence!” Some of Trump’s followers hunted for Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats and Republicans deemed to be “traitors,” with the apparent goal of capturing and then executing them.

I admit that I have felt at various times that there is more than we are told to this saga…have questioned the actions by the police, the president, the insurrectionists, et al…..but is there more to this day and the actions of some that we are not being told?

Another report has the far Right idiots close to a “new” civil war……

The Sun reported in November of last year how gun-toting militias were arming themselves across America as they prepared for Joe Biden’s presidency.

Dr Rakib Ehsan, a research fellow from think tank the Henry Jackson Society, told The Sun Online then that the rise of groups like My Militia is “deeply concerning” for the US.

He warned the potential of these organizations clashing with extreme left-wing groups could turn the US into a “powder-keg.”

https://www.the-sun.com/news/3511040/rise-far-right-militia-us/

Is this hyperbole or is it something that is truly brewing?

Is it just a new conspiracy in the making to sell ‘papers’?

Whatcha think?

Is there more we should be told?

Closing Thought–19Aug21

I have never been one that puts much sanity to most conspiracy theories and those that push them…..and I have never seen the national necessity for a group like QAnon……but then I have retained my ability to rationally look at such insanity and find my own answer to complex questions.

And speaking of QAnon I read a story that is just disturbing how much ignorance there is out there….

A believer in the QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy theories killed his two young children, believing they had “serpent DNA,” according to federal authorities. Matthew Taylor Coleman, 40, owner of the Lovewater Surf School in Santa Barbara, Calif., was detained by border agents—who allegedly found blood in his vehicle—while trying to return to the US from Mexico on Monday, hours after he allegedly killed his 2-year-old son and 10-month-old daughter, per NBC News. A farmworker at a ranch near Rosarito in Baja California had found the children’s bodies Monday morning, according to Baja California’s attorney general Hiram Sanchez. He said the boy had been stabbed 17 times, and the girl stabbed 12 times, per the Ventura County Star. Authorities said video footage showed Coleman leaving a Rosarito hotel with the children before dawn, then returning alone.

The three had checked in on Saturday. That same day, Coleman’s wife contacted police, saying her husband had left without a car seat and without telling her where he was going. But she said she didn’t fear for the children, per the AP. A criminal complaint from the Justice Department claims Coleman confessed to killing them by “shooting a spear fishing gun into their chests.” The 2-year-old didn’t die right away so he had to “move the spear around,” Coleman allegedly said, per KABC. A bloody wooden stake was also found. Coleman allegedly claimed “he was enlightened by QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy theories and was receiving visions” revealing his wife “possessed serpent DNA and had passed it on to his children.” He allegedly said he had to kill the children to save the world from the “monsters.” He was charged with foreign murder of US nationals on Wednesday.

Killed children because he is a moron….

And this guy is NOT alone….there are more out there….probably more than I can imagine.

All That Lizard DNA

Sickening news on this Saturday.

There is a wealth of conspiracies out there…but my favorite is tht of the reptilian aliens that are hiding amongst us.

One man took this silliness to a new low for humanity…he killed his kids…..

A California father took his two young children to Mexico and killed them with a spearfishing gun after he claimed he had been “enlightened by QAnon and Illuminati conspiracy theories,” federal authorities say.

According to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in California, Matthew Taylor Coleman reportedly told investigators he had been “receiving visions and signs revealing that his wife possessed serpent DNA and had passed it onto his children” and that by killing them he was “saving the world from monsters.

QAnon is a conspiracy popular among some on the far right that claims Democratic politicians operate a cabal that kidnaps and tortures children, using their blood in satanic rituals.

It wasn’t the first time authorities responded to a crime based on a conspiracy theory that originated on the internet.

In 2016, Edgar Maddison Welch entered a Washington, D.C., pizzeria and fired a rifle into a door, claiming he was investigating the debunked “Pizzagate” rumor. That conspiracy theory claimed that the Comet Ping Pong restaurant was the hub of a satanic child sex abuse ring associated with top Democratic politicians.

Welch was later sentenced to four years in prison.

(npr)

A spear gun?

What kind of moron does it take to kill his children on the back of some fucking silliness like ‘lizard DNA’?

I am sorry but I could care less about his mental state….I have NO use for anyone that would commit such a crime.

Closing Thought–20Jul21

I cannot believe the number of Americans that are bordering on stupid….especially when it come to this pandemic and the weird crap swirling around the disease….

A fifth of Americans believe that it is “very true” or “probably true” that COVID-19 vaccines contain microchips as part of a covert government-led population control plan.

That is the shocking finding of a new survey conducted by YouGov for the Economist and published this week. The survey asked respondents if “the U.S. government is using the COVID-19 vaccine to microchip the population.” In response, 5 percent of those asked said the statement was “very true” while another 15 percent said it was “probably true.”

That means approximately 42 million adults in the U.S. believe a conspiracy theory cooked up by anti-vax disinformation groups who claim the pandemic is a cover for a plan to implant trackable microchips in people, and that Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is behind it.

The claim initially surfaced last year but gained renewed momentum last month when notorious disinformation superspreader Sherri Tenpenny claimed, in testimony before the Ohio State Legislature, that vaccines make you magnetic.

The result is that the microchip theory now has more believers than the decades-old and unfounded claim that vaccines cause autism—which 17 percent of Americans believe to be “very” or “likely” true according to the survey.

Social Media has given birth to this stupidity….I question the mental capabilities of the American people the more these conspiracies grow.

But where did it all begin….well there are 12 that lead the way…..

Twelve people are responsible for 73% of COVID misinformation on Facebook. A group called the Center for Countering Digital Hate says it looked at content posted on Facebook and antivaccine Facebook groups in February and March, and then monitored how the content was shared. The group says antivaccine influencers make money from their misinformation campaigns, too. Facebook says it has taken down more antivaccine content since the CCDH story was released, NPR reports. John Gregory of NewsGuard, a group that rates news website credibility, says his company has tracked the same dozen misinformation peddlers.

The antivaccine influencers include Ty and Charlene Bollinger, Rizza Islam, Christiane Northrup, and Ben Tapper, Mashable reports.

I admit it I enjoy a good conspiracy…..mostly so that I can have a good chuckle and that always puts me in a good mood.

We have had some humdingers in the last decade or more…..from child eating Dems to laser from space starting California fires…..a full range of stupidity….

The newest one I have recently read about…is that the Texas “Freeze” was fake and a Dem plan….

“So, I guess this needs to be said tooooooooo,” she begins. “All you people who think Biden is the president, you guys cannot get no stupider, ok? He’s not in the White House. It’s closed down. He is on a movie set! You guys are so freaking ignorant that I just have to laugh and laugh! ‘Cause you’re not hurting my feelings. Never one time did Trump ever have to fake anything that he’s done. Not one time! He don’t fake s*it.”

She went on to say that people should “wake the f*ck up.”

Always good to see these people……and it makes me think….”Can’t Fix Stupid”…..

Stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of ignorance.

Please share.

I hope all had a good week…..now on to the weekend.

QAnon Today

QAnon?

Those alleged inciters of the 06 January breach of the Capitol…..among others…..

But if you spent time crying over the last episode of the Kardashians or too many hours playing Sin City and have NO idea who these slugs of society are then the old professor can help out.

At its heart, QAnon is a wide-ranging, completely unfounded theory that says that President Trump is waging a secret war against elite Satan-worshipping paedophiles in government, business and the media.

QAnon believers have speculated that this fight will lead to a day of reckoning where prominent people such as former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will be arrested and executed.

In October 2017, an anonymous user put a series of posts on the message board 4chan. The user signed off as “Q” and claimed to have a level of US security approval known as “Q clearance”.

These messages became known as “Q drops” or “breadcrumbs”, often written in cryptic language peppered with slogans, pledges and pro-Trump themes.

Since 06 January and the failed uprising from the idiot Right….not much have been herd from the “leader of the pack” of rabid pigs…..now they are scrambling to explain away their failure on 04 March….

QAnonfollowers have already started to find excuses for why Donald Trump did not replace Joe Biden as US president on 4 March.

If you haven’t been following, conspiracy theorists argued that Trump would return this week due to a baseless claim that the US turned into a corporation, rather than a country, after the passage of the District of Columbia Organic Act in 1871.

Therefore, they believe that any amendment passed after 1871 is illegitimate, including the 20th amendment which moved the inauguration date from 4 March to 20 January.

Of course when nothing happened on Thursday, QAnon followers were left scrambling for an explanation.

Some influencers in the movement had turned away from the 4th March theory early, claiming that the date may have been set up as a “false flag” operation by the US government designed to lure in members.

https://www.indy100.com/news/qanon-trump-conspiracy-theory-march-biden-b1812863

There is always an excuse, right?

Since they have lost some of their venom the question needs asking about the future of the slime in QAnon….

Everyone agreed that QAnon will likely persist as a major factor in American politics.

If these experts are right, and I suspect they are, the problems driving the QAnon movement will probably get worse before they get better, if they get better at all.

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/22252171/qanon-donald-trump-conspiracy-theories

Another question asked is why does QAnon attract so many white evangelicals?

QAnon revolves around the baseless belief that former President Donald Trump is fighting a secret war against a global cabal of Democratic elites who are Satan-worshipping, cannibalistic pedophiles. Much of the lore comes from online posts, called “drops,” written by an anonymous person known as “Q” who claims to have insider knowledge. As the QAnon movement has become more culturally significant — QAnon believers were among those who took part in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol building — surveys have attempted to identify just how many Americans believe in this conspiracy. While that picture is still murky, it’s become increasingly apparent that this movement has attracted a significant number of white evangelical Christians, which could have implications for the movement’s future. Evangelicals, after all, played an important role in shoring up the Tea Party’s growth and influence.

Why QAnon Has Attracted So Many White Evangelicals

Will This Be Trump’s Big Day?

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.

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/22252171/qanon-donald-trump-conspiracy-theories

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?

Bin Laden Lives!

Closing Thought–15Oct20

It seems that QAnon has started a conspiracy that bin Laden is not dead and it was his body double that was killed…..and the president has decided to help spread the manure (as usual)……

The alleged killer of the terrorists has this to say….

A former Navy SEAL famous for his involvement in the operation that killed Osama bin Laden is calling out President Trump for amplifying conspiracy theories that the death was fake.

Robert O’Neill, who has publicly said he killed bin Laden in the 2011 raid ordered by former President Obama, pushed back on Trump in a series of tweets for promoting the conspiracy theory that it was a bin Laden’s body double who was killed and not the terrorist leader.

“Very brave men said goodby to their kids to go kill Osama bin Laden. We were given the order by President Obama. It was not a body double,” O’Neill wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. 

https://thehill.com/policy/defense/521030-navy-seal-who-says-he-killed-bin-laden-pushes-back-after-trump-amplifies

Liars just cannot cease helping other liars spread their bovine fecal matter…..and Trump is the biggest liar of them all.

All presidents stretch the truth when they need to….but this just flat out lies and does not care that he is caught in that lie…..besides his adoring brood will lick up lies like ice cream.

How sad is that?

News, Not Pandemic News

Weekend again and my FYI attempts are running hot and cold today….I got some pretty cool stuff and one that needs an explanation….

First, there is a debate going on among space geeks that Pluto has a massive ocean under the ice and maybe even life….

According to new research, the frozen dwarf planet Pluto may have started its life as a hot world with a massive underground ocean of liquid water — suggesting, tantalizingly, that it could have harbored life.

Until now, Pluto was widely believed to be a giant boulder of ice, shielded from the Sun’s radiation thanks to the sheer distance from its star. But new evidence, scientists say, suggests that it once had a liquid ocean — and that it may still be there, under its frozen surface.

“Even in this cold environment so far from the Sun, all these worlds might have formed fast and hot, with liquid oceans,” Carver Bierson, UC Santa Cruz graduate student and first author of a new paper about the work published Monday in the journal Nature Geoscience, said in a statement.

https://futurism.com/pluto-start-hot-water-world

That is pretty cool considering that Pluto is billions of miles from the heat source, the Sun……

Remember New Horizons space probe?  Not to worry few will remember it…….

An extremely-distant NASA spacecraft is giving us the ability to look at the universe from a new perspective.

New Horizons is a NASA probe that was launched in the beginning of 2006. Since then, Popular Science reports, it’s traveled 4.2 billion miles from Earth. It’s so far away that when it looks out at the sky, nearby stars appear to be in different places than they do when seen from Earth.

New Horizons captured images of two nearby stars, Proxima Centauri and Wolf 359, in April. Precise instruments measure the position of distant stars relying on slight shifts in perception called parallax, Popular Science reports. But this is the first time that such a shift is visible to the eye.

One last space thingy…the US Space Force…the service not the series……

The United States “must be capable of winning wars that extend into space,” asserts a just-released “Defense Space Strategy” report. It is the first space strategy document issued by the U.S. since President Donald Trump, after declaring that the U.S. must achieve “dominance in space,” signed a measure this past December authorizing establishment of a Space Force.

The U.S. space strategy is highly aggressive.

“The Department of Defense is embarking on the most significant transformation in the history of the U.S. national security space program,” the report says. “Space is now a distinct warfighting domain, demanding enterprise-wide-changes to polices, strategies, operations, investments, capabilities, and expertise for a new strategic environment.”

Finally we go to Merry Old England…well in this case Scotland sorry for the error.  Maybe my friends in the UK can shed some light on this hoax?

People think a tourist’s incredible photographs have captured the Loch Ness Monster with some claiming it is ‘the best picture ever’ of all the sightings. 

Steve Challice, from Southampton, photographed a creature from the shore opposite to Urquhart Castle on the banks of the Lock Ness when on holiday in Scotland. 

Steve said he saw a ripple in the water and assumed it was a big fish that he estimated was eight feet long.
