Quote :
"A train engineer intentionally drove a speeding locomotive off a track at the Port of Los Angeles because he was suspicious about the presence of a Navy hospital ship docked there to help during the coronovirus crisis, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

[...]

Moreno acknowledged in two separate interviews with law enforcement that he intentionally derailed and crashed the train near the Mercy, according to the criminal complaint.

“You only get this chance once. The whole world is watching. I had to,” Moreno told investigators, according to the complaint. “People don’t know what’s going on here. Now they will.”

Moreno said he was suspicious of the Mercy and believed it had an alternate purpose related to COVID-19 or a government takeover, an affidavit states. Moreno stated that he acted alone and had not pre-planned the attempted attack.

In an interview with FBI agents, Moreno stated that “he did it out of the desire to ‘wake people up,’” according to an affidavit.

“Moreno stated that he thought that the USNS Mercy was suspicious and did not believe ‘the ship is what they say it’s for,’” the complaint said."


In unrelated news, Dr. Fauci now has a security detail.

I haven’t been following Barr’s BS reasons for dropping the Flynn case and charges against the other Russian spies, but this is a good oped from the person that wrote the 302 that barr has incorrectly cited as a reason to drop the case.

This is actually an important primer on the Boogaloo movement and one I was ignorant too. It’s not as simple as boxing adherents in. It’s not cohesive, like Antifa... though is far more violent.

So I don’t do the Facebook thing a lot, but did log in today and saw multiple references to how the Las Vegas shooter was an FBI cover up for the CIA and how the official story makes no sense. I had no clue that there were conspiracy groups that were leading people to believe the Las Vegas shootings were up for question.

I’m also concerned that the people posting this information finds the theory so credible that they are willing to share it with anyone who follows them and that people following conspiracy theories these days are no longer just the nerdy kids with X-files posters on their walls and Mysteries of the Unknown books on their shelves. These are adults who are very well integrated into society and hold ‘professional’ careers.

This month's Atlantic has an article about Qanon. It comes to the conclusion that these people are basically part of a new religion.

They're not spreading conspiracy theories, they're sharing the gospel.

Clicked on the link, and you are right. I am not going to waste my time reading a 10,000 word piece on a topic I could care less about. I was just curious what the gospel you were referring to.

[Edited on June 18, 2020 at 3:43 PM. Reason : I did a search for "gospel" and did not find any results.]

^^the article refers to how Qanon is very similar to a religion. Those who participate in it feel that God called them to it, they don’t need or want any physical proof because faith alone is enough to support their beliefs, scripture is often quoted as part of Qanon, and the movement ties its dogma to the anticipation and preparation for the end of days.

What was most depressing for me is that this movement is bigger than just DjTrump and that they will likely continue to grow in number and influence even when Trump is out of office and the prophecies cited do not come to pass.

Bump

B/c I think this might become THE most important domestic issue of the next decade. It pains me to say that, just thinking of the opportunity costs of the issues we should really be working on (healthcare, justice, inequality, etc). These Q/militia/kkk people are gonna absorb way too much of the political discourse, and we will all be much worse off for that.

First couple pages of this thread from way back in 2014 are pretty good btw.

Yea, I don’t want to be harsh on the people posting in 2014 that happened to be wrong. It was a different time and I think just about everyone was a little naive on the direction the country was about to take. For that matter just about everyone has been wrong when trying to predict how the future will shake out at some point, that’s what makes those discussions interesting and we can’t discourage discussion on TWW, as scarce as it is.

At the same time, the current state of the GOP has been sorta, kinda, predicted by liberals/leftist for the last 5 years (and probably closer to the last 10 years for some). Why were so many blind to the party direction? And at what point do people start conceding we could have cut a lot of this nonsense off at the pass if we had started addressing this 5 years ago.
