    In an interview with The Federalist on Thursday, Trump characterized the planned Sept. 18 rally at the U.S. Capitol as a “setup” meant to denigrate Republican voters regardless of what transpires.

    “On Saturday, that’s a setup,” Trump said, referring to the rally. “If people don’t show up they’ll say, ‘Oh, it’s a lack of spirit.’ And if people do show up they’ll be harassed.”

    During the interview, Trump acknowledged the widespread disgust that most Americans have for the professional political class in Washington, D.C.

    “There’s a discontent with everything having to do with politics,” Trump said about the general political situation in the country. “People are so disgusted with the way people are being treated from the Jan. 6 situation. It’s a combination of that compared to how Antifa and BLM were treated. When you compare the treatment, it is so unjust, it is so unfair. It’s disgraceful.”

    Haitian illegal aliens use a dam to cross to and from the United States from Mexico, Friday, Sept. 17, 2021, in Del Rio, Texas.

    Thousands of Haitian illegals have assembled under and around a bridge in Del Rio presenting the Biden administration with a fresh and immediate challenge as it tries to manage large numbers of asylum-seekers who have been reaching U.S. soil...

    Yesterday, the feds planted undercover operatives all over the DC mall in an effort to manipulate the crowd and set-up another “insurrection narrative.” However, in a hilarious turn of events no one showed up to play. As a result, there were more media looking for stories than actual protesters, and the DC riot police looked like knuckleheads on a scavenger hunt for Easter eggs.

    Spaceballs DC Stormtroopers Accidentally Target Undercover Fed Dressed Like Antifa Then Had to Pretend Like They Were Arresting Him


    With the next group it gets funnier.

    Another poor agent lost a bet and was ordered to dress in a Q shaman costume from Wish.

    * Trump supporters saw this trap a mile away. There were more journalists and law enforcement than actual protesters. Thousands more. No "Reichstag Fire Part 3".

    Interesting how roles have reversed. For instance, to distrust “western medicine” was once the preserve of the hippie left. Anti-vaxers came from all over the polical spectrum. Now science denial has become the drum beat predominantly of the Republican right (ie. the fossil fuel industries attempt to psy-op Climate Change).

    Aside from your shift from distrust of Western medicine to "science denial" I would generally agree. Nobody with a functioning brain trusts pharmaceutical companies (and their government cronies). That's not science denial. It's just the opposite - a reasonable conclusion in response to overwhelming evidence.

    People, rightly so, distrust politicians. If they distrust science, it's because the scientific community has lost its way and allowed itself to become politicized. We can no longer be sure whether the scientists arrive at their pronouncements by the scientific method or by politics.

    Some people seem to think they can get around this by reading the scientific papers themselves, and become instant experts. Considering that most of the topics under debate require years of deep study (and even then, they disagree), it's hopelessly narcissistic to think that a day or 2 of reading papers makes one an informed expert. What's worse is that most of the people claiming to have researched this way can't even balance a checkbook. And their day or 2 of research was actually a Vice article and a couple YouTube videos.

    Yes, we have to trust scientists to some degree. But the scientific community has violated that trust. So we are all left in the dark.

    "Fear is the path to the dark side, fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering." - Yoda

    I also feel alot of misinformation comes from mistranslation and/or selective hearing as Paul Simon said, "A man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest". Mistranslations can become pillars of ignorance when they confirm prejudices. Unfortunately, the consequences of being misinformed can be fatal.

    what has happened is ...the Right trust the Right and the Left trust Left as far information is concerned ... The only side saying "Misinformation" is the Left... If the Right talks of its sources and speaks that information ... the Left immediately calls it Misinformation ... and then people come out saying that Misinformation is the cause for everything...

    Basic truths get reframed in contemporary language, but they don't change.

    And this is it. The fears of those we disagree with are pathologies, ignorance and unreasonable fears. Meanwhile our own fears are not fears at all, but reasonable concerns arrived at by careful consideration.

    Everybody feels fear. Few recognize it in themselves though.

    U.S. begins deportation flights to Haiti from Del Rio

    Haitians in thousands had a second entry point that they tried ..the tried entering from Reynosa Mexico into McAllen Texas as well today.... they faced more than just law enforcement at the attempt ... they faced armed Texans down that border crossing .

    Why Millennials Won’t Let Go of Harry Potter

    https://medium.com/swlh/why-millennials-wont-let-go-of-harry-potter-a86eb7fc169f


    Harry Potter and the Millennials

    Gen Z is dragging millennial culture on Tiktok, from Harry Potter worship to coffee obsession
    https://www.insider.com/gen-z-dragging-millennials-on-tiktok-harry-potter-zoomers-twitter-2020-6



    In my latest research ... i have been researching the Millennial Generation and their indoctrination to Harry Potter ... After seeing all the Witches in the streets while watching the Antifa -BLM live feeds ... digesting the fact that we have far far more witches in the US than i had thought ... i went into research on the matter ....the discovery has been very interesting to say the least ... when i was growing up .. any series of books and movies ..was just that ... a book or movie sequels... nothing i ever took as "Real" or a possible way of life... It appears that some of the Millennial generation took the Harry Potter books..movies and sorcery into some a sort of indoctrination as a life path... Although i do find it some what comical..I find it just as sad ... So i attended some Generation Z forums to see if there was any connection.... quite the contrary actually as the Gen Z people seem to joke and laugh concerning the Harry Potter fascination of Harry Potter the Millennial Generation...

    My research and studies are now concentrated on these people who involved themselves in Witchcraft stemming from books and movies...

    Why post this in the Political forum? because a lot of what we have seen in the US with ideologies of Karl Marx ... Communism and even Socialism may have a link to why these people do not like our country as it is... Although throughout US history it has usually been the 20 somethings and 30s age group that shakes the tree to turn the corner and produce new ways , trends and carries the country forward into the next chapter ... I don't feel that will be the case this time around...

    These are my opinions of the research and studies i am currently doing ...
