    Later this year, Bob Woodward, who should be a household name in US presidential politics, is planning to release a book about Trump, detailing the last days of his presidency. This will round out Woodward's Trump trilogy, adding a third book as a sequel to the previously-released "Fear" and "Rage". As the article below states, he has not yet announced a name for this book, but if he's taking suggestions, I would heartily like to throw an idea into the ring and suggest the title: "Impotence".

    The three-volume box-set would be glorious, don't you think?

    From CNN:
    Legendary investigative journalist Bob Woodward has already covered fear and rage within the Trump White House, and soon, he will release a third book on Donald Trump's final days in office.

    The title of the book has not yet been announced, but CNN has learned that it will be published on September 21 by Simon & Schuster, which published Woodward's first two bestsellers on the former President.

    This time, the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist is working with Robert Costa of The Washington Post for an extensive look into the end of the Trump presidency and its transition to the Biden administration. According to a description from the publisher, the book will stretch into the early months of the Biden presidency.

    Woodward's first book on Trump, 2018's "Fear," detailed the measures taken by top officials and White House aides to prevent what they saw as a president unhinged, unable to control his own impulses, and unaware of how much danger his rash decisions could bring.

    "Rage," which came out last year, took readers inside the Oval Office during the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, confirming that Trump understood how contagious and deadly the virus was long before the American people were made aware.

    Trump declined to sit down for an interview with Woodward for "Fear," but he gave the journalist unprecedented access for "Rage," granting 18 free-ranging interviews, some in-person and many over the phone.

    It's unclear whether Trump agreed to give Woodward and Costa interviews for the upcoming book, but the pair had sat down with Trump on the campaign trail during the 2016 presidential election. That interview served as the inspiration for both titles of Woodward's earlier books.

    "Real power is, I don't even want to use the word, fear," Trump told Woodward and Costa in March 2016.

    "I bring rage out," Trump also said. "I do bring rage out. I always have. I don't know if that's an asset or a liability, but whatever it is, I do."

    When the benefits of representing Trump include, but aren't limited to: "getting disbarred" and "not even getting paid for your trouble"...it's not really unbelievable that no one would want to touch the dumbass with a ten-mile pole.

    Oh, I'm sure it'll move back to November when we get to August 14th and nothing happened the day before.

    Dates are tricky when it comes to crackhead conspiracy theories.

    They're already grappling with how Trump will be "back in office" later this year but also doing a speaking tour with O'Reilly in November/December.

    They're still struggling with this whole "thinking" thing.

    Eventually it'll be "Weekend at Bernie's."

    Hackers were able to scrape the email addresses and other data of more than 90,000 GETTR users.

    On Tuesday, a user of a notorious hacking forum posted a database that they claimed was a scrape of all users of GETTR, the new social media platform launched last week by Trump’s former spokesman Jason Miller, who pitched it as an alternative to "cancel culture." The data seen by Motherboard includes email addresses, usernames, status, and location.

    One of the people whose email is in the database confirmed to Motherboard that they are indeed registered to GETTR. Motherboard also verified the database by attempting to create an account with three email addresses that appear in the database. When doing that, the site displayed the message: "The email is taken," suggesting it's already registered.

    It's unclear if the database contains the usernames and email addresses of all users on the site.

    Bob Woodward would never, ever title a book "Impotus" though. I didn't mean it as a joke.

    Okay, not just as a joke...

    I mean, "Fear", "Rage", "Impotence" would be the book title equivalent of the Bard quote from Macbeth:
    ...a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

    Also the nature of the grift. Gotta give your followers a goal every now and then, before coming up with a reason as to why the goal now has to change. Gives it some perpetuity.

    Seriously, doomsday preachers on the corner just needed a heal to blame all their failed prophecies on if they wanted to be taken seriously.

    Exactly. It is incredibly simplistic in its set-up, but it seems to work wonders on the people that refuse to see reality.

    Jason Vorhees confirmed for 47th President of the United States of America. He's a native born citizen, has lived in the US his whole life, and is now old enough to be president. He's even been into space!

    Cognitive persistence is a bitch...and funny.

    Apocalyptic sects have developed multiple explanations about the world not ending at the due date: we did not have enough faith to ascend ( it's your fault motherfuckers!!) , we are the ones that stopped the apocalypsis with our prayers ( fuck!! this was not part of the prophecy before...) and one of my favourites: the world DID end but you are not illuminated enough to notice.

    If I can choose the theatrical function of this circus I would totally go for the last one: Trump was actually reinstated in Aug 13 and now he is in control of the Fed,CIA,FBI....he is now the real power in the backstage.

    Why this one? Because it will make him the deep state of the deep state...the shadow in the shadow so when trumpeteers blame the deep state of anything I could ask ...but it's the deep state or the deep-deep state? And we could have hilarious discussions like:

    Trisomic: "Fucking Biden is ruining America!!"
    Me:"But....I thought Trump was the one really running this show"
    Trisomic: "..."
