Translation: I would rather take this opportunity to self-promote.

Trump to install loyalists to reshape U.S. foreign policy on China, NATO and Ukraine (www.reuters.com)

Donald Trump in a second term would likely install loyalists in key positions in the Pentagon, State Department and CIA whose primary allegiance would be to him, allowing him more freedom than in his first presidency to enact isolationist policies and whims.

Part of the plan is to cancel the election security agency. so I'm not sure there will eventually be other elections where you do all of these things if this one is lost.

So the purpose is to protect them if someone overclocks and fries it, meaning they know if you take it in under warranty and say you want this faulty part replaced?

A plagiarism machine is as sentient as a dummy is in a ventriloquist act.

Could we have sentient AI in the future if we don't slip into neo-fascism while char-broiling the planet?

Yes, but not yet.

If someone can sit outside Mar-A-Lago and identify who is coming and going, then we need people at polling stations doing the same when Trumplings show up to 'guard' the polls.

No masks. No weapons. Put your ass on the line if you want to follow fascist orders.

Yeah, this is like "I'm going to bring a scale to show them that blue is better than green."

when will be your last time to vote for the "lesser of two evils"?

When will be your “this is the last fucking time I’m voting for the ‘lesser of two evils’, then I don’t care after that, let this country burn to the ground”? For me, this is basically it. This is last election I’m going for that " lesser of two evils" bullshit. After that I’m done. It’s just pointless. Let’s...

During the Iraq War, Kurt Vonnegut was asked about the anti-war protests.. His response was that, during Vietnam, he was part of anti-war protests firing on all cylinders and laser-focused and going to stop that war. He said it was ultimately about as effective as climbing to the top of a ladder and tossing a pie on the ground. This time will be no different.

So I don't know what you're hoping to gain. The 'Ima take my ball and go home' approach didn't work out so well in 2016. Threatening not to vote isn't going to phase anyone in a country where more than half the population doesn't vote anyway. Maybe instead of threats you should work with other people trying to help the people you want elected get elected.

Ate a platter of 3 different fried insects. I think it was wood worms, bees, and crickets. The bees were the best.

None of them were horrible. Would do it again.

What in that article explains his apology better?

He switched from left to right because of a youtube video and then broke into a government official's house with a deadly weapon.

He then used the deadly weapon when he knew he would be caught.

Fuck him.

His sad snff snff Rittenhouse dance in court is just to avoid life in prison.

Like I had to include that many different outlets in order to provide a full picture. FYI, APNews reported about this in late August. The fact that the NYT is telling you about it this week means that something very wrong occurred for two months while they didn't.

The rightwing having a 1000-page guide to their overthrow of the country is what I would call the most important event of this year on US soil.

Do you want to only be told about the climate change rejection and not the other plans? That's what's fucked up.

This is why Tuberville is blocking military appointments and talking about not want a woke military.

Trump saying that out loud happened 4 days ago. This plan is not new this week. There are bits and pieces of new coverage going back a couple months.

Who? You mean the people planning to destroy democracy?

Pfft.

House Republicans launched an impeachment inquiry in September, following months of probes. They allege that Biden and his family have personally profited from policy decisions made by Biden when he was vice president during former President Barack Obama's administration.

Cuz the VP makes policy decisions. Look at all of Kamala's policy decisions. Remember Pence's policy decisions? LOL

Could Lemmy be used as a classroom tool (like having a classroom's own instance)

I feel like it would be an interesting learning tool cuz I learn a ton on here and it gets me writing without anyone having to hold a gun to my head. I mean like even essay-length or at least essay-worthy treatments of things I respond to in longer-form, and even for the shorter-form stuff

Out of those 3 options, I would prefer the flashlight.

Even if you already have a flashlight, you can always find another place that would benefit from one nearby.

I also just say that I don't buy in at all to Darn Tough socks. This person can't where any other brand of socks? Bullshit. You can just buy new generic socks before you get anywhere close to the price you'll pay for gourmet socks.

Also depending on the person's interests, getting them a boardgame could be nice.

They are acting like the fix is already in. My guess is Russia.

They're not mulling. That's the plan.

My problem is that, anytime anybody says anything about Project 2025, they only talk about one of the many things included.

Let's be very specific about what all is included in Project 2025:

1-Establish that Article 2 of the Constitution gives the president power to do whatever he wants.
https://www.axios.com/2023/05/21/trump-2025-visionhttps://www.axios.com/2023/05/21/trump-2025-vision

2-Fire the civil service and replace it with Trump loyalists.
https://apnews.com/article/election-2024-conservatives-trump-heritage-857eb794e505f1c6710eb03fd5b58981#:~:text=With%20a%20nearly%201%2C000-page,many%20as%2050%2C000%20federal%20workers.

3-Immediately implement the insurrection act and use the military to fight protesters.
https://www.thedailybeast.com/donald-trump-mulling-deploying-military-to-streets-on-day-1-if-elected-report-says

4-Use the DoJ to target critics
https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-presidential-justice-department-probes-barr-kelly-milley-cobb-2023-11

5-Weaken the election security agency
https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/republicans-gop-president-curb-election-security-agency-angered/story?id=102261352

6-Reject climate change
https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/jul/27/project-2025-dismantle-us-climate-policy-next-republican-president

7-Remove all LGBTQ+ protections
https://www.metroweekly.com/2023/09/right-wing-project-2025-seeks-to-eradicate-lgbtq-protections/

8-Bring the Bible into government
https://www.msnbc.com/opinion/msnbc-opinion/project-2025-heritage-foundation-christian-nationalism-rcna103510

And all of this is public and written in a 1000-page handbook by the Heritage Foundation.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_2025

This raises the question of why I just had to include 9 different sources. That's because the media is only sharing this piecemeal even though it should be news shared with everybody. Their coverage is rubbish.

If we cannot rely on the media to do their job, it means we have to work around them. Please pass this whole post on to whoever will listen.

Vote.
