He said something like: then you'd need a way to identify ...like a wristband or something... to know who is safe to travel.

No, I dont recall his exact words.

If you say you want to see it 'in writing' it must be written or "on the drawing board" somewhere.

Of course it makes sense a tattoo or wristband would serve that purpose, like somewhere in China where I saw they were scanning something (your phone, I think) at a travel checkpoint.

And her got convicted and sentenced as is deserved for such a pervert.

Why the pizza thing? Well that is because people like you propagate that ball of crap and some idiots like Salamak run with it because they are too stupid to avoid being caught. Even though it is trivially easy to encrypt ones internet footprint.

How do we know that Salamak is a dumbass? Craigslist. It is hardly possible to make anything more public.

Somehow, you think there is a covert, worldwide pedo ring that conceals their every move from everyone. And they go for their jollies on craigslist.

Not to mention that he was not convicted for the pizza reference at all. That had nothing to do with his conviction.

I know what he was convicted for, and it was not anything related to pizza or craigslist.

But somehow you do not.

Maybe, maybe not. Except for the time he caught a ride to NY from Fla, Trump never flew on Epstein's Orgy Jet, (unlike Bill Clinton's 20+ appearances in the flight log), and Trump banned Epstein from his club for messing with staff, and the police said Trump was helpful with their case against Epstein..?

Wouldnt surprise me though if Trump got some from Ghizzie's girls.
Ghizzie’s girls...can you get creepier? They’re children and Trump is an Epstein can. I may be wrong, but I don’t think you believe any of this Q stuff. If you truly do, I worry about you

The notion is irretrievably dumb. I suggest you drop it while you still can salvage some shred of dignity. Maybe.

What is dumb about knowing whether or not someone has been vaccinated before allowing them onto a long flight to some city?

Or to enter a hospital or nursing home or school etc..?


...unless you are referring to something else

Nothing. It is the smart way to go. But you reject it.

You assume too much. Common sense safety checks are not the same subject as Fauci and Gates & Co

Shall we recall that time you assumed you knew why I thanked you? OK good idea.

In case you missed it between drive-by pot shots...

Wrong. I said "Thank You" (period) because I saw that you put time and energy into writing a long sincere reply, and because I appreciate and respect your expertise and knowledge, and other bits you've shared. However these do not assure there is nothing hidden from your view. As a matter of fact we hear about "knowing too much" ie when an 'expert' cannot see because they are, well, the expert. It happens...not you, of course, but it happens. ......Whoa, could your incorrectly assuming that you knew why I thanked you be something like that ? Hhmm...?

Obviously Vixen has never been to one of these parties. Watching drunk rich people slobber over young girls, in a legacy sexist blabfest, for three hours is pretty boring.

I worked in the entertainment industry for thirty years and the parties are for outsiders and to obtain publicity.

Your media priests are going down for their scumbag ways.


In January, Lin Wood and co-counsel Todd McMurtry of Kentucky firm Hemmer DeFrank Wessels confidentially settled a $275 million defamation suit against CNN brought on behalf of Kentucky teenager Nicholas Sandmann.

Monday Wood and McMurtry filed five more defamation suits for Nick Sandmann in federal court in Kentucky against The New York Times, CBS News, ABC News, Gannett Co. and Rolling Stone over their coverage of Sandmann. The suits collectively seek compensatory and punitive damages totaling $437 million.

@LLinWood
Late last year, I planned to “semi-retire” to write & focus on @N1ckSandmann
cases.

Things have changed in past few months.

falsely accused @carterwpage

I have agreed to represent Dr. Carter Page.

Isnt Carter Page related to the Obama Gate shenanigans Barr and Durham's grand jury is investigating ?

Will you apologize if I come across the video with Gates talking about wristband or some proof of vaccine for safe travel? A future apoloogy would be incentive for me to find it if you really care about it.

Bubba was caught lying and fabricated a story that Bill Gates was tattooing vaccine recipients. It was complete crap so Bubba tried desperately to change the subject and edited his posts, while everyone was laughing at him. You can see his original insane and unedited posts in the link.

Its harmless and necessary for all, so dont you nutters go all hog "mark of the beast" wild about it.

This is also hilarious. Bubba didn't realise "Tony" is a short version of "Anthony" and thus claims Bill Gates calls Dr Fauci a pet name "Tony"

Bubba is probably about 15 years old and that's why he didn't know what a drivers licence is.

Well, Bubba, this is what happens when the fictitious scenario you have created clashes with reality.
No-one here is styling themselves as a "top expert Topic Master" (except possibly you). You just made that up.
You also insist that everyone on this forum except you is part of some kind of homogenous bloc, thinking and believing in lockstep. Again, you are imagining this.
If you remove these fairy stories from the equation, there is no contradiction at all.

Also there's that CT of compulsory implanted microchips to track people on their slow crawl to the End Times. That's what they invented covid for! It must be true! It's on YouTube!

Bubba, you need a dose of reality. And don't forget to get vaccinated when the time comes.

Also there's that CT of compulsory implanted microchips to track people on their slow crawl to the End Times. That's what they invented covid for! It must be true! It's on YouTube!

Bubba, you need a dose of reality. And don't forget to get vaccinated when the time comes.
I wonder if it's because Qannon people know they'll never matter. Is it resentment that people like Gates, and Fauci will be remembered as heroes of the pandemic and they'll be remembered as problems that had to be solved so the country could recover?

There's also this (I stole the reference from another thread):

Fact check: Bill and Melinda Gates, Anthony Fauci, WHO, CDC are not due at a tribunal for war crimes [Reuters]
Quote:
Several social media users have been posting a picture of a fake document suggesting that Bill and Melinda Gates, along with the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), are due to appear at a human rights tribunal for genocide.
It's hard to keep track of all the stupid, but it's easy to predict that the flow of it will never stop on social media.

It seems like a central feature of all CTs.

I think they're mostly paranoid of authority, but they're gullible enough to swallow everything they see on QTube. Conspiracism is a definite step away from normal cognitive function, and I'm sure there's more than one way to look at it.

I suppose you're right. It's a common dysfunction but there are probably as many was to get to that dysfunction as there are people who share it.

I remember reading a study a while ago about CTers and it indicated that many people who believe in CTs would do the things they accuse other of. Essentially, they'd engage in conspiracies if they could. I think the study focused on 9/11 truthers which is particularly disturbing. I read it a while ago; I'll see if I can find it.

Qanon Conspiracy Theories Part Two

In the 9/11 threads, I often referred to a column that I read about those CTs, in the Guardian by George Monbiot. His take was that conspiracy theorists are “bayoneting a straw man,” raging at imaginary conspiracies, because of their inability to do the hard work of effecting change in the real world. Fighting real corruption is hard; conspiracy-wanking on the internet is easy.

The second one is the article I read. It was in Scientific American, not a study. The third paragraph talks about projection. The first link is another SA article that goes into a bit more length and details a couple of interesting studies.
