    Does Trump really see himself as a kind of Pagan God? How hilarious would that be?

    I'm not sure why the golden CPAC statue has a wand. It's not a scepter. Is he casting a magic spell? In his flag shorts? (I don't want to embed an image)

    I'm a little confused.

    I think we're devolving.


    On another interesting CPAC note, the stage is an upside down rune. But the rune has legs on it which were not part of runic writing.

    They were part of nazi symbolism.

    Here's the breakdown:

    The odal rune is from the Elder Futhark. It has no legs.



    The following image is the Flag of the 7th SS Freiwillingen-Gebirgs — Division Prinz Eugen, a Volksdeutsche Waffen-SS division operating in Croatia during World War II



    And a soldier:

    Here's an image:


    Here's the CPAC stage (upside down and highlighted):




    Exactly which God are they invoking? I don't think it's the Christian one anymore.

    business as usual: for whatever it's worth Wind ... it is much more nuanced than that. It will take time to stabilize the global state and this is part of the process. Bombs are always flying and certainly not just American ones.

    interesting DT. The TPAC thing is an Onion editorial. It is closer and closer to what Jung and others described as mass psychosis (Wind's video). No joke! A Golden statue? Is that supposed to be self-parody?

    My understanding is that the Trump statue was made by an artist who used his own funds. He hopes to sell it. I don't know whether CPAC paid him anything to use it. He made it in his studio in Mexico.

    The wand is the weirdest thing to me.

    He apparently used all his savings and wants to sell it for 100K.

    Perhaps there would be a taker who would pay that to shoot it up.

    Someone pointed out it looks like a cousin to the Bob's Big Boy statue. They both have short pants on.

    Well dang. Who knew? Folks on a witch hunt have been justifying driving over people with cars for much longer than the incident which killed Heather Heyer.

    Did anyone know this? I don't recall hearing about this before. I might have to look into it.

    March 1sts have been Good and Goofy (such as Ohio becoming a state in 1803---a Good, and then Congress finding out they never actually accepted them until 1953----A Goofy, then passed a resolution admitting them as a state, retroactive to 1803---another Good)
    Conspiracy!

    Can things ever improve in Mexico and why is it so bad there with the cartels? The war on drugs is such a terrible thing.

    The end of 2021 will mark 15 years since the start of Mexico's “guerra contra el narcotráfico,” a war against drug trafficking that officially began in December 2006, when thousands of soldiers were deployed to topple the cartel terrorizing the state of Michoacán. The war soon spread and plunged the entire country into a downward spiral of violence that continues today.

    The current war in Michoacán is between the powerful Jalisco New Generation Cartel or CJNG, led by a notorious kingpin known as El Mencho, and an alliance of groups known as the United Cartels. Some communities also rely on citizen-led militias to battle the cartels.

    VICE News reporter Keegan Hamilton and producer Miguel Fernández Flores traveled to the epicenter of the conflict in Michoacán, meeting cartel members on both sides and seeking to understand if anything will or can change for the better.

    The law of supply and demand always wins ... (Hey Michoacan, that's where my ancestors came from and probably plenty of them still living there) ... Also the home of the Power to the Peons President (He's in my bio-paternal line).

    Military style arms come from the United States. And the country has a long history of corruption, post the legalized through war land grab of the Americanos. In parts of the Americas, Colonial descendants are still earning millions merely for being there in the beginning. Sort of like cryto-currency.

    Yeah, the whole check fiasco. Again, the dems shoot themselves in the foot. You haul those 2 hold out dems into a room with a big gorilla in camo, sit 'em down and threaten them. You get pics of them in compromising positions. You do everything the repugs do to keep people in line.

    Weakness described as big tent compromise. Yuk. The neo-liberal old fuddy duddies are beyond spineless. Useless as slime mold.

    The dynamic is changing. The old Democratic party is transforming.

    Biden, obviously, is old school. The trend for the party will be more and more progressive. The writing is on the wall in terms of social change. The demographics are leaning heavily towards the Democratic party as it transforms and moves forward. Most people are progressive (with a small 'p')

    The Republicans are scared sh*tless about it and are working their asses off to gerrymander, restrict access to voting, throw away registrations and ballots, bring cases to the Supreme Court. (because they can't win at the ballot box, they try to legislate from the bench)

    They literally argued before the Supreme Court that they have to restrict voting or they'll lose. They've gotten quite blatant about it.

    But people can now see through their BS because it's not behind closed doors anymore.

    What's happening right now will be a vague memory in four years. Normally, after Dems clean things up, Repubs can then capitalize on their various propaganda tropes to win the next round.

    I don't think they'll be able to do that now because they're no longer united in lockstep. Trump has broken that. And Qanon has helped to expose the underbelly.

    The dynamic is changed and the direction is new.

    I don't think people are going to be able to distract with military and economic shenanigans like they have in the past.

    The big question, imo, is what crazy things will happen between now and 2024? What kinds of climate, geological, economical, and technological changes will roil everything up?
