    real talk i think the republicans are 1000x more unified than democrats

    it's really not close

    the republican party = donald trump. even supposed non-maga guys love trump because liberals hate him.

    if he wants to run in 2024, he's the candidate. if he wants it to be don jr., then it will be him.

    the RNC literally deleted their policy platform to instead just say they support whatever trump wants.

    that actually happened.

    meanwhile, centrist democrats might be closer to republicans than the AOC wing.

    that being said, the current problem for republicans is that trump is not going away. even from his jail cell he will be the kingmaker in 2024. if trump somehow isn't in jail and runs, the left will be fully unified against him just like in 2020. if it's don jr., the result will be the same.

    Yeah, he’s 100% the candidate if he wants to be in 2024 if not in jail. No other republican would have a prayer.

    How he wants to wield power is the key to how unified they are. If he wants to set up his own network, or spend time on another network, it will seriously challenge Fox, and I can see a party where Fox is pimping their usual stale republicans against whomever Trump wants to run in midterms that will be complete sycophants to an insane person. Without the constraints of being president, he will be even more insane. His candidates will be sycophants to an unhinged guy.

    If I was an actual Republican rather than a MAGA guy, I’d be hoping he dies or goes to prison for serious shit beyond tax evasion. Otherwise he completely runs the show. Death is much better as they can put on a show about how much they loved him and throw him lavish send off and hope to retain most of his voters. Retaining them for anyone but him will be almost impossible otherwise, and they are now larger group than regular republicans.

    "The GOP’s QAnon Faction Is Waging War on Republicans
    UNCIVIL WAR
    It’s the conspiracy theories versus those who want to keep a toe, at least, in the world of the real.


    Updated Dec. 05, 2020 3:41AM ET
    Published Dec. 05, 2020 12:04AM ET

    Star MAGA attorney Lin Wood strutted across a stage in Georgia on Wednesday, riling up the crowd with a Southern revival energy and, at one point, waving around a coonskin cap he had found in the crowd. He was in his element. And at one point, he inspired a “lock him up” chant aimed at the state’s Republican governor, Brian Kemp.

    But within the pomp, Wood had a serious message for the audience: don’t vote for Republican Senate candidates in the state’s upcoming runoffs, unless they meet our demands.

    "They have not earned your vote,” Wood said. “Don't you give it to them.”


    Until then, most Republican officials were happy to ignore Wood’s hapless attempts to save the election for Donald Trump, which involved wild allegations of a deep, corrupt scheme to shift thousands of votes to Joe Biden. Telling his fans not to vote for Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue, however, appeared to be a step too far. Within hours, Breitbart denounced Wood as a former Democratic donor in an attack that was picked up by the Trump campaign. Soon after, other conservatives were piling on too, with Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) accusing Wood of being a plant and Rush Limbaugh and Roger Stone distancing themselves from him.

    The fault lines made clear just how contentious the post-election political environment has become for the Republican Party. And it underscored a new problem that it faces, mainly the rise of an aggressive, increasingly assertive QAnon wing. The GOP is now divided between conspiracy theorists and those who want to keep at least a toehold in reality.

    Both Wood and former Trump lawyer-turned-professional conspiracy theorist Sidney Powell, who joined him on the stage, have built up their ties with QAnon believers. Wood includes a reference to the QAnon motto “Where we go one, we go all” in his Twitter bio, and recently endorsed a call for exactly the kind of military rule QAnon believers eagerly hope for.

    Wood’s demand is also the quintessential QAnon demand: endless investigations until what he wants to come true finally happens. Wood and his supporters claim to want Perdue and Loeffler to back a special session of the Georgia legislature to investigate the 2020 election. But, since Georgia recounts have proven the race wasn’t affected by fraud, this demand really equates to the kind of endless investigations QAnon supporters crave.

    At the end of the investigation, the thinking goes, there’ll be some kind of catharsis—in QAnon’s case, a violent “Storm” that features mass-arrests of Trump’s enemies, or, in Wood’s case, Georgia’s legislators assuring that the state’s electors be handed to Trump.


    In the meantime, as long as the investigations are ongoing, QAnon believers won’t have to face reality: that no such arrests are coming and that Biden will be sworn into office.

    That puts Republican officials in a bind: keep up the farce and order endless probes into the 2020 election, or face the wrath of QAnon believers and other Trump supporters living in their individual fantasy lands.

    Wood’s intra-Republican fight has drawn in a number of other fringe groups. Interestingly, the influential “The Gateway Pundit” blog sided with him and accused Breitbart—the bane of the pre-Trump GOP establishment's existence—of carrying water for the Republican establishment. Columnist Michelle Malkin, who’s now palling around with racist college students in the “groyper” movement, slammed Crenshaw for attacking Wood.

    At his rally, Wood even raised the prospect of pulling support more broadly from Republicans.

    “Maybe it’s time to look beyond the Democrats and the Republicans,” Wood said, to cheers. “Maybe it’s time for the party of the people.”

    Wood’s ambitions to shake up the GOP—or at least pressure it into meeting his demands—could extend for years. At one point in the rally, Wood donned a “FLYNN” cap, a reference to former Trump national security adviser and central QAnon protagonist Michael Flynn.

    “How about Sidney Powell and Mike Flynn in 2024?” Wood said, floating the QAnon dream ticket.

    Speaking of Powell…

    The one-time Trump legal team member has become the star of the Trump dead-ender movement, starring in memes that pose her with dual-wielded Desert Eagles or summoning her mythical “kraken.” Along the way, she’s attracted a wave of donations to fund her legal fight for Trump’s election— checks for which, her website tactfully points out, should be made out directly to Powell’s law firm.

    Powell’s MAGA crusade has been plagued by amateur errors, from egregious typos to a decision to rely on expert witnesses who blame ex-Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez for election fraud seven years after he died.

    To really get a sense of how Powell will throw out even the most obvious lies to muddy the waters for Trump, though, you can’t do better than her recent decision to boost a story about missing Trump ballots discovered in Lake Erie.

    On Friday, Powell retweeted a claim that thousands of dumped Trump ballots had been discovered in a Great Lake. The tweet, from a previously little-known account called @tpgwlm, has racked up more than 19,000 retweets as of this writing.

    Even a surface investigation into this claim, though, shows that it’s obviously fake. The source of the story is a set of fake news sites with names like “Patriot Hat” and “The New York Evening.” Notably, the picture used to illustrate the story is marked “SATIRE.”

    If the satire notice wasn’t enough, the story itself claims that the votes were just discarded ballots from NBC singing competition The Voice.

    “The bag is full of ballots, sure, but they’re ballots for last season’s finale of The Voice,” the article reads.

    At best, Powell doesn’t appear to have noticed the story is a fake. Not great news for the ongoing pro-Trump legal effort!"

    I doubt that Trump would go through the Republican primaries all over again. The only way Trump would run for President again is if he is the only name on the ballot.

    Trump is hoping the Queen of England will make him a King so he can rule his own country like the Falkland Islands.

    LOL at bullshit like this. Trump ain't the dictator in this country. The real dictators are the blue state governors. Heil Cuomo! Heil Whitmer! Heil Newsom! Heil Wolf! Have you canceled your Christmas like you cancelled your Thanksgiving, XFuctor? Keep your ass home, bitch. No travel. Shut your punk ass small business down, bitch. Oh! You want stimulus? Dictator Pelosi says fuck off, bitch.

    i hope i'm being overly cynical, but i think that describes 99% of the population. people vote for their own self-interest first. if there's even a chance that giving something to another group hurts them personally, most people are against it.

    it's s matter of convincing people that the things they think might hurt them, in fact, won't, and will even benefit them in the short and long term.

    dems can make gains as long as their messaging is smart

    but this is why phrases like "defund the police" are so dumb. you need a message that somehow gives you what you want (e.g., police reform), while also appealing to all people, not just some.

    Any form of defunding the police is going to be a fail as far as swing voter approval, even with a better message.

    "Reform the police" (but not involving removing funding) would get WAY more popular support.

    But the modern left speaks positively of socialism, and they've marred themselves to the insane extreme trans movement, so good luck seeing rational behavior or mass-appeal messaging out of these people.

    Pete Buttigieg is actually really good at framing leftist ideas in a palatable way, but he's also never going to win a Democratic primary because black people won't vote for a gay guy.

    there are so many insipid sentiments coming out of progressive circles right now, it feels like there is a gentlemans agreement behind it. like 'no no we get it, we will back some insane positions too, we got you fam'.

    but i also get that at some point, people get tired of common sense decisions being stalled by partisan senators that they resort to jingoism out of desperation.

    oh


    but fwiw the traditional blocker is infrastructure. you need a lot of fiber / copper, a lot of power, etc etc. it was why nyc never really took off as a tech hub. the cost of building that shit out was multiplied by existing infrastructure being controlled by unions.

    that said, with everything going remote as a new normal, if there was some way to short the silicon valley real estate market id suggest balls deeping it.
