    That's what it is. He wants attention. I don't think this will do it. "Everyone" is on Twitter. How many will intentionally bookmark that blog? Also, how many of them know how to bookmark?

    He needed to address the "time-delayed" endorphins that his "proclamations" had. Those take time to release and get news pickup on so that he can start getting those sweet little endorphin hits with each like/rt etc.

    Now he can get instant gratification once more, all is right in the world.

    What kinda nerd reads books? And it’s still weird to me he’s not on Parlor. Makes total sense for him.

    I bet his supporters are pretty bummed they can't even interact. It doesn't even look like the "like" button (I assume that's what the heart is) works, kek.
    I think the reason there's no comments allowed is because the admin knows it would be filled with his supporters screaming about killing all Democrats which would get the site deplatformed eventually. Also if they allowed comments then it would allow Democrats to come in and make fun of Trump and his supporters.

    Alternatively: That's unnecessary, pointless extra work with little value-ad when all Trump wants is to see those sweet likes flowing in, and he can get his end of day social media reports from his staff showing all the people that shared his posts on FB/Twitter. Because he doesn't care about the comments themselves, just that people are engaging and they like him.

    True but having his supporters run wild and potentially getting the site shut down or having the place fill up with people who hate Trump and his supporters would put a damper on his self love fest he's created for himself with this site.

    Parler with an e. Autocorrect doesn't recognize alt-reicht havens for racism and violence as a word, and I'm okay with that.

    Trump was likely told not to go there. Just like he was told not to go to a David Duke pep rally or carry a literal torch while standing next to Lee's statue. He's got to be addicted-style-shaking for his follow/comment numbers going up. A blog? That's...decaf.

    We have more about Barr's disingenuous "privilege" decision.

    1) The current DoJ can appeal. HAHAHAHHAHAHA

    2) The judge noted Trump's DoJ fought like hell to keep these communications concealed. Most transparent bla bla hypocrisy.

    3)
    The agency’s redactions and incomplete explanations obfuscate the true purpose of the memorandum, and the excised portions belie the notion that it fell to the Attorney General to make a prosecution decision or that any such decision was on the table at any time.
    "I don't speak legalese."

    Barr, as AG, was supposed to review the findings and then make a decision about whether or not Trump needed to be charged. Barr had already made that decision, and looked for a way to justify it. That's obstruction.

    4) This is the same judge who ruled over Stone's conviction. Which Trump commuted. Then pardoned. Maybe she's unbiased, but I fucking wouldn't be. I would be livid. I would use terms like "burn them down".

    Now, maybe this is somehow different, but when a normal DA chooses not to proceed, that doesn't mean the criminal is free forever. Biden's DoJ can choose to read Mueller's report, and anything else they want to hint hint IRS, and then decide. "Double jeopardy" has nothing to do with "the crooked cops decided not to arrest them in the first place".

    The Three-Fifths Compromise, an agreement reached during the negotiations in 1787 to create the United States Constitution, found that, for the purposes of representation and taxation, only three-fifths of a state’s enslaved people would be counted toward its total population. It is regarded as one of the most racist deals among the states during the country’s founding.

    Yet in a speech in the Tennessee General Assembly on Tuesday, one representative defended the compromise, arguing that it was “a bitter, bitter pill” that was necessary to curtail the power of slaveholding states and that helped clear the way to ending slavery — remarks that were rebuked by critics, including Black colleagues, as insulting and demeaning.

    By limiting the number of population in the count,” the state representative, Justin Lafferty, a Republican from Knoxville, said on the House floor, participants in the Constitutional Convention “specifically limited the number of representatives that would be available in the slaveholding states, and they did it for the purpose of ending slavery — well before Abraham Lincoln, well before the Civil War.

    The comments came as lawmakers in Tennessee were debating legislation on Tuesday aimed at limiting what public and charter schools can teach students about the influence of institutional racism and privilege.
    In which a Republican state Rep. from Tennessee goes on the House Floor to defend the 3/5th's compromise, arguing that it was actually designed to limit the power of the slaveholding states and pave the way for slavery.

    Historically illiterate white supremacists are fucking dumb. Why is the Republican party the party of historically illiterate white supremacists? Why do Republicans keep falling over themselves to try to defend the "good" of slavery?

    Yo, what the fuck is up with Republicans continually wanting to talk about the "good" of slavery and how slavery was all sunshine and roses and babies were born (ignore that it was often through brutal rape) and that's just lovely?

    The historical illiteracy and low-key overt racism within the party continues to be mildly concerning.
    It isn't just that, I was reading an article from a state representative in Tennessee that said the 3/5ths compromise was a good thing. Claiming it's purpose to bring about the end of slavery "eventually". https://www.rawstory.com/tennessee-r...efends-racism/

    1. Trumper’s link Trumps blog repeatedly on Twitter.

    2. Twitter flags the link for false information.

    3 Deep state!!!!
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add

    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    Source please.

    I have FOX News saying Trump's supporters can't reply to Trump's blog posts. That sounds like something a Trump supporter would call censorship, if it wasn't Trump. The idea, of course, is Mr. Fragile Snowflake can say what he wants, nobody gets to correct him when he's wrong, but they can post it to FB or Twitter.

    WHich, if @Fugus is right, no they can't.

    How much did this cost, again?

    In a rambling Facebook post, Huckabay, whose views often reflect the QAnon movement, claimed Hilferty and other conservative legislators were becoming indoctrinated by Communist beliefs. She also insisted slavery resulted in “hard working ethics” and “love and respect” between some enslaved people and slave owners.
    Huckabay, being Martha Huckaby, president of the Women's Republican Club of New Orleans.

    What is up with Republicans just like, openly and explicitly voicing their support for slavery?

    We had someone on this forum claim it was a good idea, because it gave the north more power. :/

    I was meaning with how they started flagging Trumps tweets and stuff linked conspiracy theories as false.

    Watch them start doing that too whenever people link them.

    So, what's the going rate of support for a staunchly conservative Republican with a military background who checks every box except for his strong opposition to Trump?

    About 3% of the vote.

    The leading candidate? The wife of the former winner, who died of covid, who was endorsed by Trump.

    There is no backing away from Trump, the Republican party, as we're seeing with Kevin McCarthy and others attempting to shank Liz Cheney, is fully the party of Trump.

    If she loses, text books will need to be updated, to reflect that new values of GOP... conspiracy theories...

    The US is fucked, if we have a two party system that pits liberals vs conspiracy theorist.

    Can't wait to see the look on her face when Trump stands beside her and calls COVID a hoax.

    What's the biggest problem in Alternate Reality right now? Some trans kid MIGHT break a record in sports. They can't name any that have, and they'll struggle to find a single example of it, BUT THIS IS THE MOST PRESSING ISSUE FACING OUR NATION.

    Considering there was the clip on John Oliver (I think?) of the guy whose wife died of covid talking about how he didn't want the vaccine because he wasn't sure it was safe, I don't think this will be as big a problem as one might imagine.
