Oh, do you know this for a fact? I ask only because I am duty-sworn to report this to the FBI. Possession is 9/10 of the law, and it directly links him to a coup attempt against the United States of America.

So can you prove he has her laptop or are you talking out of your butt?

A number of years ago I read an article in the Skeptical Inquirer suggesting a fallacy called fallacy of misplaced rationality. It was well-written, describing situations like these Q claims and similar; this latest Trump has Pelosi's laptop nonsense is a perfect example of this: a claim without a whiff of any proof, nor will there likely ever be any. Just a claim repeated over and over by the credulous on social media. ****, Trump may even claim it, but as in all his claims, evidence will surely be lacking. In any event, none of this had any bearing on the upcoming transfer of power to the Biden administration. It will happen, no matter the whining from the trumpist lot.

Tippit, the conspiracy theorist, left the forum after all his bizarre conspiracy claims were debunked on this skeptic forum. Like you, he didn't ever bother to produce evidence to back up any of his hilarious claims.

That's what happens on skeptic forums. Bad luck.

No. That is today's fantasy from Trump followers, trying to justify their ongoing existence after being laughed at by normal people.

Did Trump tell you this through Twitter? Was it Facebook? Instagram? Parler? or some other service he has been banned from?

Don't tell me. You can't remember.

There are religious groups that claim the world will be ending soon, and name specific dates. When those dates come and go without the world ending, they shift their claim to a later date, saying that it really will end on that date this time. They do it over and over and over.

I'm not sure why that suddenly popped into my head. It really has nothing to do with this topic. :D

As I said before, many of them will pay a price; they are losing jobs, and facing charges from trespassing and theft up to violent sedition, insurrection, and murder. But the beauty of being a witless, gutless, anonymous troll pushing cretinous conspiracy fantasies is that you never have to face any consequences.

Except one: the one thing a troll dreads more than anything else is the prospect of the grown-ups no longer talking to him. I think that’s a suitable approach here.

I wonder if all the entitled nitwits who thought sedition was a thing to try, and now discover their silly selfies are incriminating them in the act, and are getting rounded up. . . I wonder if they thought how it might end? I wonder how they feel about "revolution" after losing their jobs, their businesses, the freedom they didn't fully appreciate before? A local CEO here whined about how dumb his decision was, yet another, an unemployed Q-nut said he regretted nothing. I think that's how it's going to go as they round up these morons: those that realize their lives are ruined unless they bend a knee and ask forgiveness, and those losers who have nothing left to lose, and will stubbornly and uselessly cling to conspiracy worldview that leads them around by the nose like sheep.

This is all going to play out to the ultimate chagrin of those apprehended and charged, and to the delight of the rest of us.

And the beauty of being the President who incited those people to the acts for which they will pay those prices is that, with a Republican party behind him who have apparently settled on a pious "heal the nation" message to prevent his impeachment, he won't have to pay any price at all. Of course, it's just coincidental that the "heal the nation" guff also takes the spotlight off them for their enabling of him for the last four years.

And the CT fantasists will be just fine with that.

Mmm, the mob is fickle. They may not really see the facts, but if they're no longer satisfied, they will seek new leaders. They discovered him in 2015. They might easily forget him in 2021.

I looked into this as Richard Barnett denied he stole the anything else, other than Pelosi's private mail when he was charged. (Code 18 Section 1708 Felony charge of up to five years for stealing federal mail.)

However it appears the laptop belong to a conference room and was used for presentations.
"Drew Hammill, an aide to Democrat Pelosi, said on Twitter that the laptop belonged to a conference room and was used for presentations. He declined to offer further details."

An extreme right wing internet platform called The Blaze previously claimed to have a photo of Nancy Pelosi's emails on screen, but this has now disappeared.

So your source of information, Trump, has been banned from telling you what to think, on most platforms and now refuses to do press conferences as president, yet you think normal people are "in the dark" because they are reading about this in full, as it unfolds?

It is so pleasant not to see his orange mug, pleasurable still that his sub-literate tweets are now just to be archived as the stupid meanderings of the worst president ever.

Are your sources the ones trying to get everyone on Social Media to repeat the QAnon/8kun Guys claim that:

1) Pelosi’s laptop was totes taken in the insurrection
2) It wa full of incriminating stuff and she was arrested at the border.
3) Trump is at Cheyenne mountain forming a New government
4) The Pope was also arrested
5) As was the Italian Prime Minister
6) General Flynn is in charge of suppressing the Democrats, and has been reenstated at full rank.
7) Pence, McConnel & Graham will be arrested because the whole insurrection was to get them to show their ‘true’ loyalty.
8) Powell and Lin Wood will be presiding over all the indictments.

So, basically more fantasy from the QAnon dream factory.
