Visualize Matt Gaetz getting chased down the street by a woman shouting, "are you a pedophile? are you a pedophile!"
Nah, the mother-in-law angle was indeed to good to be true.
Still, just this very AM, Matt Gaetz *future sister-in-law* walked right up to it, calling him "weird and creepy" & saying he'd pressured her, when she was 19, to date older men.

Her video had this caption.

"Conspiracy theories" are 100% who the American people are, and *I don't blame them*.

I blame their lack of discernment - QAnon is a *dumb* conspiracy theory, for many reasons. But successful, large-scale conspiracies are the stuff of established history.

Let's investigate...
2) The "the 2016 election was stolen" conspiracy theory? - though it's dumb, b/c despite considerable digging, proponents of this haven't been able to produce any evidence, & it would have required collusion by thousands of centrist elderly patriotic poll workers, nonetheless...
3) Allegations of election fraud have sporadically plagued US presidential elections (1876,1888,1960) & especially in 2000 and subsequently.

The 2000 election conspiracy is a matter of record, starting with the fact that #GOP FL Secretary of State Katherine Harris shut down...

I don't choose to follow (on Twitter) people on the basis of their follower size but, rather, on the strength of their posts.

Like this one.

And I have some relevant bits to add...
Back in the late 90s to 2002 I was speaking out on "global warming"/climate change. I still have copies of the talks I'd give, the flyers I made...

I was hitting all the themes that @AbruptClimoMet hits in his thread.

During that time, I recall an online conversation with....
3)...Bill McKibben, in which McKibben wondered what it would take to wake people up to the magnitude of the problem.

Would it have to take a direct CAT4 or CAT5 hurricane hit on a major US coastal city, say New Orleans?

I was with my wife on a several day day hike getaway and

From 1900 to 2017, oceans have risen 6.3-8.3 inches. And the rate is accelerating.

The only way coastal cities will be able to cope, in the long run, will be to gradually build inland, to higher ground.
Since large buildings have an average lifespan of 40 years, this inland migration can be done relatively cheaply - except we'll also need to abandon homes & historic structures. And, obviously, underwater land has little value; there will be losers.
This has happened before, in the human experience - as the Earth emerged from the last great Ice Age, about 10,000 years ago, sea levels were lower than they are currently - there was a time lag between when the Earth's climate warmed and ice melted, causing seas to rise...

While @TheJusticeDept, the White House, Congress & the Senate *twiddle* their thumbs, an anti-government organization tied to Michael Flynn & the Oath Keepers 1/6 coup group is raising a private army to place under renegade anti-federal county sheriffs across America...
One of the sheriffs in this org, the #CSPOA, was apparently working with Trump surrogates in an effort to overturn 2020 election results in Michigan.
3) That MI county sheriff, Dar Leaf, had a disturbing proximity to two MI individuals charged in a late 2020 plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.…

CSPOA - which had close tie to Oath Keepers & was in direct contact w/the militia group the day before the coup attempt - is now raising a national militia force ("posses") to put under its anti-federal Trump-loving sheriffs.

Another effort w/Oath Keeper ties...
2)..are the growing "state defense forces". One of these groups, the North Carolina State Defense Force, seemed to be organizationally linked to OK, and to this day endorses the Oath Keeper effort on its website.
3) CSPOA sheriffs opposing federal & state authority can quickly subsume such armed state-level groups. Indeed, *any* militia group can quickly plug into CSPOA and enjoy quasi-legal legitimacy - which is the very point of CSPOA, to legitimize insurgency.

Ever see pictures of the birth defects in Iraq, after the massive US use of depleted Uranium munitions there?

Rumsfeld's obit should include pictures of Fallujah babies born with internal organs outside their bodies & without heads.
An even more massive wave of horrific birth defects plagued Vietnam after the extensive American use of Dioxin defoliants there.

Literally millions of pregnancies were effected. In Hanoi, there's a government museum dedicated to the war that has foetuses in jars...
3) for the ones that survived w/significant birth defects, Vietnam has special workshops for them, for a livelihood, where they make crafts & objets d'art. The government requires tourist buses to stop at these places, to teach foreigners about the problem & its magnitude.
