If there were tunnels under the Capitol and White House, why didn't Trump have them closed up? :ols: 

 

The amount of stupidity is hilarious and sad at the same time

 

The White House Tunnel System

 

Quote

Work first began on the secret White House underground tunnel system back in early 1950 under the Truman administration. The White House was deteriorating and it was determined that massive reconstruction was required. President Truman relocated to the nearby Blair House for three years while the interior of the White House was completely rebuilt with concrete and steel beams. During that time, a tunnel was built connecting the West Wing and East Wing providing access to the bomb shelter.

 

In 1987, another secret tunnel was built during the Reagan Administration to protect the President in the event of a terrorist attack. This new tunnel allows the President to access a secret staircase outside the Oval Office by pressing on a wall panel to reveal and open a secret door. The passageway at the bottom of the stairs leads to a closet near the President's private elevator in the basement of the Residence.

 

There is also a known tunnel leading from the basement of the East Wing to the basement of the Treasury Building which was built by FDR as an air raid shelter. An underground passageway provides pedestrian access between the White House and the Old Executive Office Building next door. There are rumors of tunnels connecting the White House to the Capitol, Blair House, VP Residence, Camp David and the Pentagon, but these are unsubstantiated at this time.

Lately it’s been commonly pointed out that every accusation the right, especially Trump Republicans, make turns out to be a projection of their own misdeeds.  Applying that to Q gets creepy in a hurry.

It's called "projection" and it's been Trump's most often used and most successful tactic all along. I believe he got it from reading about Nazi propaganda...

 

https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/01461672012711010

"In his analysis of Nazi propaganda, Ellis Freeman identified an influence tactic based on projection: accusing another person of the negative traits and behaviors that one possesses and exhibits with the goal of deflecting blame away from one’s own misdeeds and toward the accused. Although the use of projection as an influence tactic is not limited to fascist regimes and its consequences can be socially devastating, the projection tactic has not been subjected to experimental analysis. In four experiments, the authors found that projection was effective in (a) increasing the blame placed on the target of the projection and (b) decreasing the culpability of the accuser (or projectionist). These effects occurred despite (a) raising suspicions about the motives of the projectionist, (b) providing evidence that the projectionist is guilty of the deed, and (c) timing the projection so that it occurred after the misdeeds came to light."

Michael Flynn’s Family: That QAnon Oath Video Is Just Our Family Motto

 

The lawsuit relates to a CNN report from Feb. 4 that features a two-second clip of a video posted to Twitter by Michael Flynn on July 4, 2020, showing him and his family all reciting an oath of allegiance that includes the phrase “Where we go one, we go all.” 

 

[...]Indeed the exact wording used in the oath taken by the Flynns came from a message posted by QAnon’s anonymous leader several weeks earlier—a message that also encouraged followers to take the oath.

 

But in Tuesday’s court filing, the Flynns claim the saying had no connection to the extremist movement when they said it.

 

“It was not an oath of allegiance to QAnon, or any kind of oath at all. It was a simple, family, July 4 statement of support for each other,” lawyers for the Flynns said in the document filed Tuesday.

 

But the argument that this was all just an extraordinary coincidence of having a family motto that exactly mimics a well-known QAnon phrase is somewhat undermined by the fact that Michael Flynn shared the video on Twitter alongside the QAnon-linked hashtag #TakeTheOath—a tweet that Jack Flynn then shared to his followers.

 

In the video Michael Flynn is seen reciting the oath before all the family members repeat what he says. However, if it’s a family motto, then Flynn doesn’t seem to be too well acquainted with it, as he is seen reading it from his phone.

The QAnon Conspiracy Theory Inevitably Turns On Evangelicals

 

The spread of the QAnon conspiracy theory, which alleges that a secret cabal of satanic cannibalistic pedophiles rules the world and has long used its power and influence to freely murder and traffic children, has reached deep into the white evangelical community in recent years. While such allegations have usually been leveled against Democratic politicians and left-leaning entertainment, media, and business leaders, the conspiracy theory now appears to be circling back around on evangelical leaders themselves.

 

Earlier this week, Right Wing Watch noted how MAGA pastor Jackson Lahmeyer, who is running a primary campaign to unseat Republican Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma, has openly embraced QAnon conspiracy theorists as part of his campaign, only to become a target of their conspiracy theories. QAnon activists accused the pastor of pedophilia and child sex trafficking in July after he posted a photo of his young daughter wearing red shoes.

 

Similar allegations are now being leveled against several high-profile evangelical leaders.

 

Late last month, self-proclaimed “prophet” and QAnon conspiracy theorist Johnny Enlow posted a “prophetic alert” on his Facebook page in which he warned that “many of our most famous pastors and Christian leaders are about to be exposed as sexual deviants, pedophiles and worse.”

Right-Wing Broadcaster Stew Peters Again Says Dr. Fauci Should Be Executed

 

When QAnon conspiracy theorist DeAnna Lorraine teams up with radical right-wing broadcaster Stew Peters for an appearance on his “Stew Peters Show,” it usually results in a segment filled with unhinged rhetoric and wild conspiracy theories. Lorraine’s most recent appearance on Tuesday’s program provided both in droves.

 

Lorraine and Peters were outraged by the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendation that all students and staff, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks when schools open in the coming weeks. While Lorraine bizarrely declared that masks are “a sexual fetish” and accused parents of child abuse for having their children wear them, Peters ranted that vaccines are a poison bioweapon before calling for Dr. Anthony Fauci’s execution.

 

“No matter if you’ve been poisoned or not by the intentionally engineered bioweapon that is meant to kill, maim, and destroy,” Peters said. “This is not a vaccine.”

 

“It’s not a vaccine,” Lorraine agreed. “It’s a poison shot.”

 

Peters then dismissed the contentious exchange between Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci that took place during a hearing on Capitol Hill Tuesday, claiming that Paul was just posturing for the purpose of raising campaign donations, and repeated his call for Fauci to be executed.

 

“He’s trying to make money,” Peters said. “If you really want to grill the guy, how about this? How about demand a criminal investigation, indict this guy on charges of crimes against humanity, and send him to the gallows? That’s what you should do.”
