Amazing how the GOP are willing to stand behind this crook. Let's assume for a moment that Trump is being truthful, this will make hundred of witnesses liars, adversely so, the GOP can't bring forward one reliable witness in his defense yet the narrative is all the impeachment hearings are a witch hunt.

When the Senate gets to do its part, you nutters will have a mental breakdown, and it's going to be historic! See you when it goes to trial in the Senate master Tinbo...it should be funny as all get-out you know what I mean, don't you? I'd put money on Mr. Obama being called to testify, and it will be humors to see his lips quiver with fear. I'll also bet that before it's all done, Mr. Obama will claim foreign citizenship to escape his fate...Thomas smile

OK Tom, let's try this from a different angle now that your 8chan/8kun icon has been conveniently removed, only to be replaced with an equally far right wing, racist, homophobic, conspiracy theory-laden proven purveyor of slander, defamation, vile character assassination and hate speech.

And yet, you have the obnoxious audacity to TWICE refer to other posters as "nutters." I'll say one thing for you... you're one seriously nervy, drama-queen.

Here's the cowardly cryptic meaning of the acronym WWG1WGA and some insight into the mentally defective minds regurgitating the pornographic filth originating at the Nazi-esqe propaganda machine and political cult that is QAnon:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QAnon

From QAnon:
QAnon's posting campaign has a history of false, baseless, and unsubstantiated claims. Beginning with the first posts incorrectly predicting Hillary Clinton's imminent arrest and followed by more false allegations, such as claiming that North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un is a puppet ruler installed by the Central Intelligence Agency, QAnon's posts have become more cryptic and vague allowing followers to map their own beliefs onto them. By generating a keyboard heatmap of QAnon's supposedly coded messages, information security researcher Mark Burnett concluded that they "are not actual codes, just random typing by someone who might play an instrument and uses a QWERTY keyboard", adding that "almost all the characters" in the codes alternate between the left and right hands, or the characters are close to each other on the keyboard.

Some of QAnon's other allegations include his February 16, 2018 false claim that U.S. Representative and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz hired El Salvadorian gang MS-13 to murder DNC staffer Seth Rich, and his March 1, 2018 apparent suggestion that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is the granddaughter of Adolf Hitler.

A July 7, 2018 article published in The Daily Beast also noted that QAnon falsely claimed that "each mass shooting is a false-flag attack organized by the cabal". Other beliefs held by QAnon adherents include that Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George Soros, and others are planning a coup while simultaneously involved as members of an international child sex trafficking ring. According to this idea, the Mueller investigation is actually a countercoup led by Donald Trump, who pretended to collude with Russia in order to hire Robert Mueller to secretly investigate the Democrats.

Another recurring theme is that certain Hollywood stars are pedophiles, and that the Rothschild family are the leaders of a satanic cult. By interpreting the information fed to them by Q, QAnon adherents come to these conclusions.

On multiple occasions, QAnon has dismissed his false claims and incorrect predictions as wilful misinformation, claiming that "disinformation is necessary".

This has led Australian psychologist Stephan Lewandowsky to emphasize the "self-sealing" quality of the conspiracy theory, highlighting its anonymous purveyor's use of plausible deniability and noting that evidence against the theory "can become evidence of [its] validity in the minds of believers"

Author Walter Kirn has described QAnon as an innovator among conspiracy theorists in his approach of enthralling his readers with 'clues' rather than directly presenting his claims: "The audience for internet narratives doesn’t want to read, it wants to write. It doesn’t want answers provided, it wants to search for them."

A look at expected participants in Virginia gun rally

by SARAH RANKIN
Associated Press Sunday

January 19th 2020

RICHMOND, V.a (AP) — State officials and U.S. hate-monitoring groups are warning about the potential for violence ahead of a gun-rights rally in Virginia that's expected to draw a mix of militias, firearms advocates and white supremacists to Richmond.

Supreme Court of Virginia Denies Challenge to Executive Order Forty-Nine

RICHMOND—The Supreme Court of Virginia today denied a court challenge to Governor Ralph Northam’s decision to temporarily ban firearms on Capitol grounds from 5:00 PM on Friday, January 17, 2020 until 5:00 PM on Tuesday, January 21, 2020. The Supreme Court ruling keeps this policy in place and comes one day after the Richmond Circuit Court ruled to affirm the order.

I'm a huge fan of fact-based reporting and Judd Legum's newsletter, Popular Information, is basically the gold standard for that kind of product. I have no idea how a one-man shop breaks news as consistently as he does.

To be clear, Legum's politics are not my politics. But reporting is reporting. And today Legum highlights a huge problem Facebook is having with the gun-rights people heading to Richmond:

On December 13, the leader of American Warrior Revolution, a paramilitary organization allied with the militia movement, posted a video to its Facebook page, which has more than 540,000 followers. Joshua Shoaff, a popular right-wing personality who goes by the pseudonym Ace Baker, went on an extended rant threatening Virginia state representative Donald McEachin.

Shoaff was incensed by a quote, published by the Washington Examiner, in which McEachin suggested that Virgina could mobilize the National Guard to enforce new gun laws if local law enforcement refused to do so. McEachin’s comments came in response to a Republican-backed “sanctuary counties” movement, in which sheriffs have pledged not to enforce new laws such as expanded background checks.

Shoaff declared that McEachin's statement amounted to treason and McEachin, who is African American, should be lynched . . .


I want you to understand that Shoaff was not speaking metaphorically. Here's' what he said, on Facebook:


This message is directly to you [Donald McEachin]. We're coming to your state. I live in Tennessee. My name is Ace Baker. I'm coming to the state of Virginia on January 20th and I hope to see you personally on Lobby Day. Because I would love nothing more than to tell you to your face, you are a coward. You are a tyrant, committing treason. And as a good friend of mine said a few minutes ago, treason is punishable by death. I'm not telling you that I'm going to kill you. I'm telling you that your acts constitute treason and the punishment for treason is hanging in the middle of the street ... You should be pulled out of office by the hair on your head, walked down the streets of the capital, walked up to the steps of a swinging rope that's placed around your neck.


Leave aside for a moment that the guy calling the elected official "a coward" says claims to be named "Ace Baker" instead of using his real name.

Instead, focus on the fact that this threat was up on Facebook for a month and Facebook didn't take it down until Legum's Popular Information contacted them to ask for comment.

There's a lot more in Legum's dispatch about how "gun rights" groups are using Facebook in ways that should make all of us worried.

And the picture it paints of Facebook is of an organization that is desperately trying to uphold its community standards, but simply overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the user base.

Because there is no AI or machine learning that can help a platform kick our users making physical threats, or inciting violence. That requires real, human judgment.

And human judgment may simply be incapable of scaling to 2.5 billion users.

If that's the case, there's a very big question about what we should do as a society going forward.

To take just one possible pathway, it's worth understanding that the invention of the printing press eventually forced the creation of a whole universe of law to help take advantage of the benefits of this new technology and mitigate against some of the obvious problems it created.

Whatever happens in Richmond today, this is the bigger question that's going to loom over us into the future.
