How Trump Steered Supporters Into Unwitting Donations (https://www.nytimes.com/2021/04/03/us/politics/trump-donations.html)


The sheer magnitude of the money involved is staggering for politics. In the final two and a half months of 2020, the Trump campaign, the Republican National Committee and their shared accounts issued more than 530,000 refunds worth $64.3 million to online donors. All campaigns make refunds for various reasons, including to people who give more than the legal limit. But the sum the Trump operation refunded dwarfed that of Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s campaign and his equivalent Democratic committees, which made 37,000 online refunds totaling $5.6 million in that time.

MI6 spy Christopher Steele 'produced second dossier on Donald Trump for FBI

Article is behind a paywall but pro-tip (kinda scummy i know) : if you use Firefox and hit the reader view toggle. Just refresh the page while in reader view and it should grab the whole thing.

Here's an excerpt, there's not much more to it than that really.

It'll be interesting if this second dossier is ever leaked out.

Trump deserves the worst that can happen to him, I really believe that. During his presidency, I made a comment to friend: "I didn't know I could hate someone I've never met before so much." Unfortunately, I think he'll escape any repercussions.

I'm starting to suspect that Twitter is only making these gesture-moves to prove they'll do something where in similar situations Facebook will not, and it's a strange line in the sand in how they're defining what their company is "all about" at this point in time.

Twitter is realizing that they completely let the genie out of the bottle, and now they're trying to say "we're sorry!"

We are such a stupid country with such a short memory. People are going to need to be continually reminded of the horror this man fomented & why he cannot be allowed to rehabilitate himself or come back into the spotlight ever again. Between all the Big Lie stuff and then especially 1/6, the populous has to never forget what an absolute menace he is. His continued actions do make all that clear at least. He hasn't changed at all. And now look at Liz Cheney being forced out of power in the House. He is still running that party. This monster needs to be put down. Things won't change for the better on that side of the aisle until he's completely gone.

What's fucked up is that Republicans are overrepresented in gvmt.
Senate democrats represent like 40 million more people than Republicans, but they have a 50 50 split.
On top of that, they have the most watched cable news channel and the most media engagement online.
AND, they have a big ass persecution complex thing going. They're whining about being censored and cancelled during interviews on the country's #1 cable news channel.

And they all either love, or fear, Trump.

Meanwhile, they're scrambling to create blatant voter suppression to all but guarantee a victory in 2022 and 2024.
There are fewer of these people than there are of us, but they're beating us by playing REALLY dirty. It's not just Trump, it's brilliant strategists like Roger Stone. The persecution complex bullshit is going to bring their voters out in fucking droves, while many on the left won't vote because it's too fucking HARD, by design, OR, they'll underestimate how pissed off and fired up the right is.

Edit: also, look at what allegro posted above. These people DO NOT give a FUCK about decorum, ANYMORE.

Yet, Cheney has a FAR more conservative voting record than her replacement. She has also voted WITH trump, more than her replacement. The other woman didn't even support trump in 2016.

But Cheney won't repeat Trump's lies, and this lady will.

This has become an EXTREME cult of personality. The "GOP" no longer has SHIT to do with conservatism, or state's rights, or small gvmt. It's JUST about swearing allegiance to trump and parroting whatever he says.

I don't see Trumpy running again. I'm sure he'll WANT to, but Republicans will trot out whoever they can that supports his "values" without throwing their support behind him. They're going to want someone they can control better (i.e. someone who doesn't put their foot in their mouth every time they speak), and god help us if they succeed. Honestly, I hope he gets rectal cancer before then so we don't have to be bombarded with his stupid fucking face.

Trump won't run again. This has always been 100% about his ego... and he never really expected to win the first time anyway. Then, he actually won, and wtf... and then he couldn't bear to lose, anything but that... and then he lost. He'll come up with a reason to never try again, and it'll be some blowhard nonsense about how he already did more than all people in the universe combined, and that at this point, the evil democrats would rather ruin everyone's lives rather than let him make America great again, and "guys, I just love this country too much... this country, and all of you... beautiful people out there in the dark..."

I hope you two are right. And I think that trump was a useful idiot to the GOP establishment.

But they created a fucking monster. It's literally the Trump Party, now, to the point where they're filtering out lawmakers who don't repeat Trump's blatant lies.
Millions of people who never gave a shit about politics are now fervent trump supporters. They couldn't tell you the three branches of gvmt, or what the Secretary of State does, but they looooove Donald Trump.
The only way he doesn't run again is if someone convinces him not to: someone like Roger Stone or Steve Bannon. And I don't know why they would do that.

Trump is their ticket to minority rule.

Trump won't run again.
Bullshit, yes he will. And all of the votes that the Republicans pulled in for the 2020 election (record-breaking) are assumed to be because of Trump. Which is likely bullshit, but the GOP isn't taking any chances. It's why the House is lined up behind him; they don't want to lose any of those votes. They're whores. They don't want to lose that power. They will turn this country into an autocracy to keep that power. I'm not kidding.

If you read his niece's book, that gig filled Trump's giant ego and he wants that shit back. The White House was his Windsor Castle and all the world saluting him and guys in tuxes chasing him around waiting on him like he's royalty, and the world calling him "sir" is what he's been living for, his entire life.

The only thing that will stop him is an indictment and prison time.

I got through a lot of her book but eventually, I just felt like I needed a break, and I'm not sure where I left off at this point. When I was reading it originally I was just really needing to keep my blood pressure down... the anxiety behind the possibility that this motherfucker might actually get re-elected at the time was just too much. Now that he's lost, I should probably go back and finish it.

He's a demagogue figure now and the way media covered him the entire Presidency it's no wonder why he is considered one. He owns the Republican party now, there's not another candidate even close to him in popularity. What's your other choices? Ted fuckin' Cruz? Fucker Carlson? Chris Christie? Please.

If your standard democrat nominees are dogshit like they have been this entire past decade it won't be a surprise if he wins. At that point you'd have to question your nomination choices because if he has the ability to be elected twice then maybe Trump isn't the fucking problem with the elections or a specific voter base like people blindly wanna dismiss. Maybe your election nominee choices turn people off. Joe Biden is basically a republican who wears blue paraphernalia. If he doesn't run who is next in line for the Dems in 2024? His VP Kamala Harris? She was so fucking terrible she bombed out in the Democratic primaries before Iowa even concluded. What a joke.

I think Harris has a good chance to be the 2024 candidate, and I don't think her 2020 primaries performance will matter at all by then. She is easily the most popular Democrat right now (actively in elected office... the Obamas don't count here)

https://www.npr.org/2020/12/15/945031391/poll-despite-record-turnout-80-million-americans-didnt-vote-heres-why

A large portion (not all, but a large portion) of the 80 million people that stayed home this past November is who the current centrist bent of the Dem party is turning off. And it's exactly who they should be spending all their time & effort trying to go after, instead of trying to super serve the PMC that they already have locked up. Or worse yet, playing the riskiest game of all & focusing on trimming off juuuuuuuust enough centrist PMC Republicans to squeak by, instead of re-doubling efforts to attract the centrist working class folks they've lost to the right since NAFTA. Some may argue that they can do both at the same time, but I think the messaging is too broad to get both in any substantive way that would be a big boon at the polls.

Working class Latinos are a big focus of that article. That's the future, and that's the disaffected voter base they should concentrate on. Get them with both rhetoric & actual, real, implemented policy that they are yearning for...and the right is toast on an electoral level nationally. The Biden admin has been doing some real good so far on this front, but the messaging from Congressional leadership (and really just the Dem senators in general) is still absolutely not where it needs to be. Overall, a complete change of all Dem leadership is needed. Pelosi, Schumer, Durban, Clyburn et al are not even remotely equipped for the outreach needed to get more nonvoters, nor to fight toe to toe with the fascists on the other side. Biden has been more adept thus far (thanks mostly to CoS Ron Klain imo), but this is his last hurrah. And the less said about VP Top Cop, the better. Not equipped for any of this, and she will get lit up in 2024 if she ran against certain potential R candidates. I could see her juuuuuuust eeking out a tiny victory against others though. I hope they primary the fuck out of her if it's her in 2024, and all signs point to that happening from the actual left in the party.

I DO think she'd be in good shape in 2028 after a 2nd Biden term as long as the Biden admin doesn't stop trying to actually do things/change things. I really worry that with no structural change anywhere from his admin though, it won't be enough (and 2022 is looking grim right now for retaining the House). And there is absolutely no mention of any plans for structural change from them right now outside of HR-1/S-1, and I'm not holding my breath that the strongest reforms in the current version of the bill will make it across the finish line...again, b/c Dem leadership are weak, ill-equipped pussies. Or, maybe I'll just trot out my standard "paid to lose" line again.

Or maybe it really is like that Twilight Zone episode, "It's a Good Life." I remember after Trump first got elected, I saw that episode and it resonated so hard for me. I was actually in tears at the end. "Won't someone take a lamp or something and end this!!!!?" So yeah, Liz Cheney got sent into the cornfield. But this isn't sustainable. It's gonna end, and the people who facilitated any part of this madness will be shamed in history books.

Trump is telling people he thinks he'll be 'reinstated' as president in August (https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-expects-to-be-reinstated-as-president-august-2021-6)

Trump is telling people to forget that the government simply doesn't work that way. His next chance at being "reinstated" will be in 2024, IF he's neither dead nor in jail.

I get the impression that people really do think that if anything happens to a President, the runner-up of the preceding election will take their place, given how Trump and his base seem to equate impeachment with the Democrats/media being jealous that he was elected instead of Hillary Clinton. It's pretty ironic how the same people who spent four years yelling "you lost, get over it" would rather burn the whole country down than accept that the Trump era is over.

The really fucked up part here, is if through some weird power play or loophole, Trump actually did get reinstated as President in August, it would rip this country to pieces. I don’t know if he really thinks this is plausible, or if all this is part of a 2024 bid, but it’s not going to happen. I hope Trump gets everyone worked up thinking “the Storm is finally coming!” What’s it going to take for all the pizzagate q people to realize “ohhhh, I’m an idiot!”

nah, you really think he's going to accept a social media platform where he can't tell people that he's their "favorite president," without knowing deep down that tens of millions of those "followers" actually despise him? Trump doesn't want an echo chamber where everyone tells him that they love him... especially the sort of people he hates to have to deal with when they clean his golf cart or push the dessert tray. He wants to hear that the woman who just had to clean his toilet thinks he's a complete fucking bastard. That's really what gets him off, and it's been the formula his whole life.

I wonder if Trump realizes his legacy is going to be “after sucking off the kkk, he tried unsuccessfully to start a civil war, because he was a big baby and he didn’t like that he’s a gigantic, enormous loser. Like a BIG loser.

A TREMENDOUS LOOOOOOOOOOSER

Like... wouldn't it be a great thing if we could just try to work as a society to supplant the word "bitch" with "Trump" in some common usage. Like, imagine a father trying to instill some lessons about sportsmanship, and his son has just lost a baseball game, and he's all sad and pissed because it was his fault, and he's like "DAD! I messed up... I'm a loser!"

And the father responds angrily with "Listen son! Today... today you might have lost, but that doesn't make you a loser. But you know what makes you a complete Trump? If you don't walk over and shake the hands of that team that just beat you...because they did. You lost. You have to accept that, and be an adult about it. Not a complete crybaby Trump. No son of mine is gonna be a fucking Trump. So you go over there, shake some hands, and don't tell mom I said the t-word"

Was he wearing his pants backward? Are they Sansabelt? Did he poop his pants?

The guy can't seem to afford a good tailor. His sleeves are always too long, and he wears those ENORMOUS tapered slacks. And he's always wrinkly and disheveled. And the too-long ties, ugh. The suits always LOOK cheap, even though he's buying really expensive suits.

It's not a good look, ever.

His biggest intended message this weekend? "Get the vaccine, vaccine is good, I got the vaccine, I'm responsible for the vaccines."

Which is making his supporters' heads spin. "Nooooooooooo!"

What's most infuriating about this story... actually, I don't know what the "most" obnoxious part of this is....

Is it that: The scam "gay voices for Trump" generated money?
Is it that: Now that this guy was caught trying to scam people, he's still not giving up the ghost and is still claiming he's gay for Trump, or at least bi
Is it that: Nobody covering this is talking about how this is just one of tons of scams to extort money from moronic Trump supporters
Is it that: Trump himself (along with his campaign) pulled this scam off way more effectively?
Is it that: This guy who is barely old enough to buy a beer just thought he was going to actually get away with this? Dude, you are a stupid person. In order to pull off a grifter scheme like Trump has pulled off his whole life, you don't start off broke. You need a team of lawyers. You need people smarter than you in the room who know that your best interests benefit them. You need what you don't have. So yeah, you'll go to fucking jail, and Trump never will. Goddamn it.

This sentence is specific to this one guy, because he pleaded guilty right away and didn't commit any violence.

The judge said: "Hodgkins did some very bad things that day and caused some real damage to this country, but I don't consider him to be a threat or see him as an evil person. This is a very bad episode in his life and a very bad episode in this country ... some sentences will be far higher, and some will be far lower. This is what I believe is a fair sentence."

The article says: "In addition to prison, Hodgkins was ordered to pay $2,000 to repair damage to the Capitol."


Yes, as pointed out on Twitter, in comparison to the black woman who made a mistake and voted while still on probation for a felony because she didn't know she wasn't allowed to do that and was sentenced to 5 years in prison, this does show how racism works in this country.

The party that adopted Back the Blue as both rallying cry and badge of honor will do everything within its power to sabotage an investigation into an act of violence against police officers, if the circumstances mean that supporting them is no longer politically convenient.


The party that decries purity tests and accuses opponents of being held hostage by extremists will reject and despise its own members, if they don't support an effort to memory hole and minimize violent acts taken by its own extremists.


The party that fetishizes the physical imagery of American democracy and spent half of last year arguing that when the left is done pulling down statues of Nathan Bedford Forrest, George Washington is probably next...couldn't really give a shit that a crowd trashed the Capitol building while an election was being certified.


On each of the above topics....police support, opposition to political purity tests, enshrinement of American iconography....the party and its media supporters have produced rational, reasonable arguments. And yet in each instance, the response to January 6 seems to demonstrate that those arguments were cynically appropriated in order to provide a talking point against perceived political opponents, rather than coming from an intrinsic and lasting belief. They were each, in their way, disposable. Without cost or care.


This comes back to a question yesterday, too, I'm sad to say:

I wonder if Trump had been reelected would the vaccination rates be higher?
At the heart of this question is a quiet recognition that broad swaths of the worldview are currently determined by whether or not believing a thing is true means believing the libs are wrong and/or evil. We're all left to wonder: would millions of thinking adults take a life-saving vaccine only if they felt the vaccine had come from "their" political side? Or is there literally no issue whose fate isn't capable of being re-positioned daily on that lone, guiding fulcrum of hatred for libs?something I pulled from elsewhere.

I'm so glad that the white terrorist was arrested without incident. I mean, who doesn't have a bad day and try to blow up a...library.

Speaking of white terrorists:

I still do not get why they didn't just shoot the guy in the truck claiming to have a bomb.

Really... I get this notion that "all life is sacred" or whatever, and I understand that making examples out of people by killing them is generally not the most effective strategy, but blow that guy's head off already. We have been pussyfooting around way too much with these people, and so they feel entitled to do stuff like run into Walmart without a mask and sit on the floor and cry about freedom and their feelings. Fuck your feelings, remember?

We can't have some weird society where we tolerate someone dressing up like Chewbacca and raiding the capitol building with a spear, right before we kindly put him in jail and make sure he has a gluten free diet that's organic or WTF is going on? I've run out of every shred of patience.

At this point, I want mask mandates, vaccine passports, and potentially lethal enforcement of those rules. This disease is going to kill us all if we don't stop these idiots from bravely telling us to fuck off because we can't do anything about it.

and potentially lethal enforcement of those rules.

So... let me see if i'm reading you right. You want people who don't use masks and don't get the vaccine to be executed? Is that what you're asking for?

Yes, you are reading that properly. That is exactly what he said. I almost replied and called out this shitpost last night when I seen it but had second thoughts because I didn’t want to get dog piled and argue for 2 pages over nothing because I’m not changing the guy’s mind anyways. BUT fuck it.

Like I'm not even trying to be a dickhead but @Jinsai (https://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=272) must be suffering some sort of added stress or mental crisis with this pandemic shit. He's literally advocating on police authoritarianism because some goofy assholes caught in social media video clips don't comply with what Fauci God (the same dude who mishandled AIDS in the 80's) and governmental talking heads say on the news cycles in regards to "public health" reasons. He cares about "health" so much then outright says to splatter someone's brain matter with a firearm because they don't wear a paper mask in Walmart because they need to. He's either a homicidal maniac or just emotional? Either way the virtuous moral compass is broken where even though he doesn't agree with people instead of extending an olive branch he shoves an assault rifle in their face for death because they won't comply. You're two sides of the same extreme, intolerant coin. That's why I can't get behind half of these bonkers bullshit topics these days, people are extreme to the max and rarely try to see other's viewpoints whether they're WRONG or not. Then again, real critical thinkers listen to all opinions and not echo chambers. Shit like that is why American citizens have poor relation issues these days. The post two posts above illustrates it. You might think these people are stupid and insane for being so dangerous and unruly with reality but don't act like you're on a virtuous crusade on your high horse because you're not. Most of your posts in this area of the board are just dunking on republican retards on here.

The dude's worried about other people's behavior more than his own. He typed out a sentence to kill people with lethal force because of wanted mandates online on a forum. That's insane.

As for the FrEeD0M FiGTh3rZ he's talking about, yeah they are indeed stupid with their anti-vaccine and non-compliance rhetoric but get the fuck over it. Unless you're clamored around a gaggle of them and your health is in direct danger because of it than who cares. When your government lies, gaslights and destroys your trust over 2 decades of bogus news angles you reap what you sow. You're supposed to trust the same government that lied for years about Weapons of Mass Destruction and tons of other things from history (Gulf of Tonkin, etc.)? Yeah right. Hell, Fauci himself lied about wearing masks at the start of this thing last year. I'm not even a QAnon stan, rigged election truther, conspiracy nut or Trumper but I get why someone like that would behave how they are right now. In today's current climate where compassion has gone out the window from both sides we've made a horrible society to live in.

Fauci didn’t lie. The science changed (we learned more about the virus as time went on). I think he advised wearing masks in good faith, and look, let’s say he didn’t. It STILL protects others and is more protection than not wearing one.
@Jinsai (https://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=272) I’ll say I’m not so much for killing those who refuse to wear masks though I understand your perspective. I want the vaccine to be mandated. Hell, here comes old man Dave, but back in my day, they pretty much were. Good luck going to school in the 80s if you weren’t. By the way, I was fighting leukemia from 1980-1986, and I still got the vaccines. These weak ass little bitch brain dead choads eating horse paste and shitting themselves? It’s time for Biden to mandate the vaccine. It’s FDA approved now. No more excuses. Fuck their libertarian and MAGA chud (despite Trump eventually telling these knuckle draggers to get it) conspiracy theory bullshit.

It’s time for this pandemic to end.

Federally mandate it. Schools and companies should follow suit.* You want to fight it? Good luck getting anywhere. No restaurant, school, grocery store, venue, airport, workplace—NOBODY will let you in anywhere. You’ll be a hermit screeching on the internet. So yeah, I’m all in on vaccine passports.

MUH LIBURTEES. Fuck you, you dimwitted cowardly dunce cap little turds. You’re done here. I have NO COMPASSION for these people.

And drag these fake ass attention seeking “journalists” and “doctors” pushing these nonsense theories in front of panels and strip them of their credentials. You failed at your jobs. Now you need to find something else to do.

*Before my ass is jumped, obviously there would be folks that would be temporarily exempt per proven medical conditions, treatments, etc.

No. What I’m saying is if you run up in someone’s face and refuse to stop, while refusing to comply with safety precautions whereby you could be transmitting a lethal disease, people should have the right to defend themselves

This disease kills people.

...and really, I should "get the fuck over it?" I am not going to presume that you've lost anyone to this virus, or that you've had someone literally cough in your face and call you a sheep for wearing a mask, and I get that this actually doesn't entirely belong in this thread at this point, but sorry, yeah, I'm pissed, and I'm not going to "get the fuck over it."

I'm going to lock this thread for a beat so that everyone can take a few breaths and decompress.
Jinsai - calling for potentially lethal enforcement is a loaded statement that doesn't do anyone any good. Please rethink that as a solution because it's not particularly viable much less ethical.
Demogorgon and Space Suicide - responding with speculative statements that escalate said loaded statement also doesn't do anyone good because you're provoking an escalated reaction which is counterintuitive to the report Demo sent in suggesting we lock the thread. Throwing gasoline on a smoldering fire and then calling the fire department in to put the fire out is quite a strategy.
