Now trucking companies can hire less people, and all it will cost us is horrible wrecks.

And starting today I have even fewer legal protections (!) and am goddamn fortunate that Boston is excellent and this company is by far the most overtly trans friendly one I’ve ever even heard of.

A lot of my friends and acquaintances are about to be fucked.

Ya know, I'd be fully in favor of truckers actually being listened to re: what they need but also??? There's a fucking reason those laws exist.

This is from a US president who insists a recession can't be around the corner because everyone is "very rich".

So, you know, clearly an expert is talking.

So, I don't know if anyone else here is following this, but it turns out a Falun Gong media outfit worked to get Trump elected because they believe he has been sent by Heaven to cause the fall of the Communist Regime.

This same network has been fuelling online propaganda for...Qanon.

This explains a really weird amount of the disproportionate pull QAnon has had.

It does.

It also made at least one researcher, someone who is pretty much an expert in Aum Shinrikyo, freak out.

Because she's been saying for years that Aum didn't start out as a terrorist group. No, they started out as a new age movement with a side in conspiracy theory.

What happened with Qanon a couple of years back? It got mixed up not just in apocalyptic Christianity, but also J.Z. Knight, the notorious New Age huckster that she is. And now we have Falun Gong, another group with some deeply weird New Age beliefs in the mix, downplayed though these are by those who want to needle the Chinese government. New Age + conspiracism + a belief in being persecuted = biological weapons on the Tokyo subway.

Sure thing

Quote
Since last year, Knight has begun to incorporate the anonymous online clues left by the anonymous QAnon into her Ramtha lore. In one statement from “Ramtha” provided to The Daily Beast by Knight’s group, the Ramtha School of Enlightenment, the spirit declares that the person behind QAnon “is divine intelligence.”

"It is challenging the entire world and the evil network in every country every country — and taking them down,” the statement praising QAnon reads.

Knight’s embrace of QAnon marks the latest bizarre evolution for the conspiracy theory, which has appeared everywhere from Trump rallies to the White House, where the president posed for a picture with a QAnon leader. The conspiracy theory has also been tied to two murders.

Like other QAnon promoters, Knight has begun to make merchandise based on the conspiracy theory, selling hats and T-shirts with “Q” branding. Knight has also tried to use QAnon to sell copies of her book, claiming that QAnon clues are actually signs that people should read her “great book.”

Knight has found a friendly reception with some top QAnon promoters, who have started flocking to the group’s “The Ranch” property in Yelm, Wa. for QAnon-intensive events.
