QAnon People Still Trusting The Plan, Two Days From Biden Inauguration

You would think, with it being only two days until Joe Biden's inauguration as president of the United States of America, that belief in QAnon conspiracies would be petering out. It is not. In fact, there are even a lot of posts on message boards like the GreatAwakening.win and the QStorm forum on Poal (yet another semi-Reddit clone where adherents migrated after Voat was shut down) from people saying they have just accepted all of this nonsense as true within the last couple weeks.

While a few are posting asking for "hopium" — by which they mean new conspiracy theories to help them maintain their faith — many, if not most, seem incredibly confident that this is all just part of "the plan." And that they should "trust the plan."

Since QAnon has mostly been purged from social media, some adherents have started communicating through text messages, which has not been pleasant for their family members. On Reddit, people are reporting getting strange messages from their conservative parents talking about how something big is coming in the next few days.

No Mask Can Protect You From Rand Paul’s Lethal Stupidity

By the time you read this, it's possible that the United States will have passed 400,000 deaths from COVID-19. The virus is still spreading almost unchecked, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) claims the virus's new, more transmissible variant could become dominant in the US by March. This is all very bad news, but Kentucky GOP Senator Rand Paul appears to be telling people to break out of their mask prisons and breathe in the fresh Covid.

Paul, who is trying his damndest to win the title of Kentucky's worst senator, was on Laura Ingraham's white power hour Friday and denounced Dr. Anthony Fauci's oppressive voodoo science.

PAUL: What I tell people is use common sense.

This is when you know he's about to cough bullshit on you.

PAUL: If you've had the disease or you've been vaccinated and you're several weeks out from your second dose, throw your mask away and tell Dr. Fauci to take a leap because once you have immunity you don't need to do this.

No Big, FBI Just Worried About ‘Insider Attack’ During Biden Inauguration

We are two days away from the end of Donald Trump's presidency. Now we just need to make sure Joe Biden and Kamala Harris stay alive. According to the Associated Press, US defense officials are concerned that MAGA goons might've infiltrated Biden's inauguration. Yes, they're actually worried about an “insider attack" against the president-elect from servicemembers assigned to secure the event. The FBI is in the process of vetting all 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington. That doesn't seem like a lot of time. Sarah Palin had a lengthier vetting process and we saw how that turned out.

This does not look like a party or a peaceful transition. It stands out as more than just petty now that the outgoing president won't attend his successor's inauguration for the first time since 1869. Trump's just been impeached for raising a lynch mob against Congress and his own vice president. Leaving Washington DC early Wednesday morning seems to draw a big honking target on the event, which should really be virtual for the safety of all involved. The situation calls for a nice, comfy bunny slippers inauguration from secure locations.

It only takes one Trump true believer to make a tragedy.

Giuliani Thinks Trump Should Just Tell The Senate Why He Ordered The Code Red

Donald Trump was impeached last week for inciting an insurrection against the United States government. That's more serious than a parking ticket, so Trump should consider competent legal representation at his second annual Senate trial. However, Rudy Giuliani, one of the lead Kraken wranglers in Trump's “elite strike force" of COVID-19 superspreaders, was at the White House Saturday. The MyPillow Guy could probably provide better legal counsel than Giuliani.

Giuliani confirmed with ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl that he was working on Trump's defense, and it's a doozy. He's prepared to argue that Trump's pre-siege speech didn't constitute incitement to violence, because Trump's fascist Big Lie about winning an election he lost is true!

"They basically claimed that anytime [Trump] says voter fraud, voter fraud -- or I do, or anybody else -- we're inciting to violence; that those words are fighting words because it's totally untrue," [Giuliani] said. "Well, if you can prove that it's true, or at least true enough so it's a legitimate viewpoint, then they are no longer fighting words."

Congress

Mitch McConnell Calls Biden ‘The People’s Choice,’ Calls Trump A Cab Out Of Washington

The end of the affair.

Senate Majority (soon-to-be-Minority) Leader Mitch McConnell torched Donald Trump on the Senate floor Tuesday. He noted that the last time the Senate convened was after a MAGA mob had attacked Congress on January 6.

MCCONNELL: We had just reclaimed the Capitol from violent criminals who'd tried to stop Congress from doing our duty. The mob was fed lies. They were provoked by the president and other powerful people.

Trump would love to distance himself from the mob he incited, but McConnell isn't letting him. This is a big deal. Before Trump's first annual Senate impeachment trial, McConnell (said he) believed Trump hadn't done anything wrong. He told Sean Hannity that he was actively coordinating with the White House and there'd be "no difference between the president's position and our position."

McConnell and Trump obviously don't share the same position about the Capitol siege. Trump still insists he did nothing wrong, just like his perfect Ukraine call. However, McConnell stated outright that Trump's “Save America" rally speech was a pack of lies. He accused Trump of provoking a mob that broke into the Capitol and killed five people, including a police officer.

Madison Cawthorn Remembers Time Madison Cawthorn Saved All Of Congress From Mob He For Sure Didn't Incite

This guy, whew, boy, I don't know!

Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-North Carolina), the charming young Aryan who got elected to Congress despite/because he announced that visiting der Führer 's vacation home was on his bucket list, is still working out how best to spin his participation in the run-up to the failed putsch of January 6. In a fascinating New York magazine piece by Olivia Nuzzi, Cawthorn struggled for words to explain how he wished the day had gone differently. You know, for the sake of the nation, and also for his public image, which has suffered just a skosh since he called on voters to "lightly threaten" members of Congress who didn't overturn the election.

"Literally," Cawthorn said, "I … I … I …" [...]

"In hindsight," Cawthorn went on, "you know, I wish I could've … uhh … if I could, you know … I probably would've … obviously … knowing what happened later in the day … I wish I would've been like, 'Just so you know, we are peaceful protesters.' "

Maria Bartiromo So Mad Democrats In MAGA Panties Doing All These DC Attacks

Oh look, another Big Lie.

A rather chilling report came out in the Washington Post last night, that the feds are worried QAnon insurgents might be trying to infiltrate the National Guard for tomorrow's inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. That's on top of worries about actual insider attacks by QAnon terrorists who actually are part of law enforcement and the Guard. There aren't specific threats, but the FBI has been paying attention to chatter. So either they are totally on top of this, or they aren't. Wheeeeee!

Over on Fox Business, Boxwine 2.0 AKA Maria Bartiromo, who is getting her own primetime Fox News show to spread her crazy and who has been more committed than most to spreading Trump's fascist Big Lie about winning an election he actually lost, has a theory about that report and what REALLY happened on January 6.
