Trump will be sworn in as the 19th legitimate president of M'erica on March 4! And he is raising prices at his hotel to prove it!

Quote:
For some QAnon conspiracy theorists, March 4, 2021 is a date circled in red Sharpie on the calendar. The truly devoted believe that, on this special date, Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 19th president of the United States.

The March 4 rate hike appears to be exclusive to the Trump International, notes Zach Everson in his 1100 Pennsylvania newsletter, which has diligently tracked the comings and goings at Trump International since the early days of Trump’s presidency. When Everson surveyed other DC luxury hotels — Four Seasons, Hay Adams, and St. Regis — he found that those hotels’ rates remain close to the norm on March 3 and 4.

March 4 is also referenced in the title of a song written from Trump's perspective about the recent past slash current state of affairs.





Left with spring alone, I withdraw from this
I lived so differently, it wasn't good enough

I was with you alone and winter was gone

Things once blurred are twice sharpened
When I think of what I could have
Blood has left me even before you
Can never return a second time

I lived so differently, did it all for it
But everything is now a film on rewind

Yeah, right. My goal is to get a progressive in 2024. You’d rather suffer 8 years of Harris (Biden won’t last long) than 4 more years of Trump even if those 4 years led to 8 years of AOC. Look at the big picture and stop continuing a broken system. You do realize we’d have got a progressive this time if everyone who supported Bernie voted green in 2016? You guys are telling the Democratic establishment you are happy taking their shit sandwich

We voted on whether this is constitutional and the vote determined that it is.

I, however, have voted to acquit because I still don't think it's constitutional.

God, remember when someone could say this sincerely without being high on krokodil, fuck

At this point my expectation is that Biden will be the last Democrat president I see in my lifetime, and also that I will be publicly tortured to death by the combined police/military for liking a Barron Trump meme lightly mocking his haircut, in like fifteen years, max

I'm so glad I moved 3000 miles away from DC. I don't want to be anywhere near the south or Midwest ever again. Things are going to get very ugly there after Biden leaves office.

the next Trump is going be way more violent and murderous. he's going to round up and jail opponents and kill a lot of people

Prediction: the US has become so polarized that we have now entered an era of single-term presidents in which I president is ever popular enough with the electorate to win re-election.

Trump flags and Let's Go Brandon shirts everywhere. People loud about antivax and anti mask sentiments. To the point they approach me to try to change my mind about wearing a mask, as I warn them to get the hell out of my bubble. Lots of Republican events, and gun shows. Churches everywhere, more than stores. If I'm not back on the East Coast before 2022 is over, I'm going to be pretty upset.

I buy the "no president ever popular enough with the electorate" part, but I don't think that's going to matter in the slightest

I think the path here is: this Congress doesn't pass voting rights legislation; Democrats get creamed in the midterms; the now overwhelmingly Republican Congress rubs its collective hands with glee as states pass more voting rights removal laws and continue gerrymandering, and Congress itself presumably passes all kinds of nasty shit to help; the Democrats stage Hamilton performance after Hamilton performance in protest, but somehow this never leads to them winning another position of power ever again

This feels so overwhelmingly pessimistic when I write it out that I feel like it must be ridiculous, but at the same time I've seen absolutely no sign that it isn't going to go exactly this way (perhaps the final point is a slight exaggeration)

Nah, I'm with you. The DNC blatantly eschews any sort of populist sentiment which openly challenges neoliberal corporatist institutions. The GOP, by contrast, has convinced the masses that Donald Trump is their champion. And to be fair it's really easy to do that when your whole platform is based on not believing in anything at all.

The GOP is now waging war on ideology as a concept. They've intentionally stripped language of its meaning, specifically with respect to political discourse. These are the people who said "truth isn't truth", and "what you are seeing and what you're hearing are not what's happening". Alternative facts. If you keep changing the narrative, you're never wrong. And since objective truth is dead and buried, whatever the would-be autocrat says is truth. To a certain extent, this is the logical eventuality of a society rooted in unscrupulous sales and marketing tactics. The ultimate con has begun.

The end result is this postmodern hellscape where all symbols and signifiers have devolved into an endless precession of simulacra. The civil war they keep talking about was already waged along ideological lines, on an intersubjective stage. But there no longer can be common ground for sharing of ideas in good faith, via language, because the stage itself has been nuked from orbit. Words have been stripped of their meaning by decoupling them from anything grounded in reality.

One side believes in nothing. The GOP has the luxury of saying "government is inherently bad, everything sucks, look how shitty we're making it," with the Democrats left to make these feeble attempts to hold the pieces together, these symbolic capitulations in place of meaningful structural change, because that's their role in the "competitive" oligopoly. Fighting (or having the simple appearance of fighting, there is no difference between signifier and signified) tooth and nail to fix decrepit bridges in this country, is now perceived as "socialism".

At a certain point, we're going to be left in this ruinous nihilistic landscape, where objective reality has been so neglected that someone is going to have to put the pieces back together, and historically, that's where another Donald Trump would swoop in, but this time, someone who isn't a colossal fucking dipshit loser moron fuckface. We're looking at shortages of nurses, doctors, teachers, exploding childcare costs, crisis levels of student debt, housing shortages exacerbated by multinational firms buying up property in neighborhoods where they do not reside, stagnant wages offset by inflation when wage increases do occur, accelerated concentration and centralization of capital at all levels of the economy, climate change running rampant due to the eternal demand for 3% annual growth, and on and on down the toilet bowl it goes, as some other internet warrior dismisses these objective realties as just more noise in the sea of arbitrary, sliding value scales, just one more opinion signifying nothing...

This whole Republican-Democrat dynamic is, in the language of the business management textbooks, a "competitive" oligopoly in terms of market share, but the D's and R's are somehow more efficient at keeping the outsiders out than Coke or Pepsi. We're talking >99% market share. The Democrats pretend to believe in something. That's their role. And ostensibly, the things they are supposed to believe in are noble - parity along racial and gender lines, a basic standard of living for all, in short, a more egalitarian society, a true meritocracy, in contrast to the rich getting richer while the poor get poorer simply by birthright and propagation of mediocrity through arbitrary genealogical criteria if not outright sociopathic behavior- but most people who are halfway paying attention can see through it now, they know that our political institutions are rotten to the core. Not to be confused with "both sides are the same, I am an enlightened centrist" - there's a nuance here. That includes people who have voted Democrat their entire lives and will continue to do so, because there is no alternative other than ideology or not-ideology. Believe in something, as ineffectual as our representatives may be, even knowing they don't really want the things that they claim to want, or hand the keys over to the proto-fascists and their hedonistic nihilism. And rather than piss off their donors and lobbyists, because the real money comes when the politicians become lobbyists, they pretend to do something while doing nothing except serving as a lightning rods of ineptitude for the folks with legitimate economic grievances and not enough education to see how thoroughly beaten they are. That's the role of the Democrats - to present an illusion of choice created between those with power and those without.

So yes, I think you're correct, and I think one thing we can count on from the Democrats is more symbolic capitulations, more kabuki, as the GOP seizes more and more power by overtly flaunting objective reality as an ontological concept. If there's any alternative, I lack the vision to see how it could possibly unfold.

"Not only do we have the D.C. Jail, which is the D.C. Gulag, but now we have Nancy Pelosi's Gazpacho Police, spying on members of Congress, spying on the legislative work that we do, spying on our staff, and spying on American citizens that want to come talk to their representatives. This government has turned into something it was never meant to be, and it's time to make it end."

I've seen that video of her doing dangerously stupid, rapid, Crossfit-style overhead presses, and I'm willing to bet she's knocked herself out with the barbell on multiple occasions

Kind of impressed when she's able to form coherent, if imperfect, sentences like this at all really
