Ken is permabanned, so some advice[edit]

If he tries to write any more comments on here, please revert and ban. Anything he writes on here, it's already written in Conservapedia in an essay anyhow. You can talk about those, that's fine, but do not directly engage otherwise. Thanks. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 05:58, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

When was this decided? Did we discuss this or did you get up feeling grumpy and pull it out of your arse? There are ways of shutting people down without banning or censoring them. LondonGrump (talk) 06:53, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
@LondonGrump Yes, there was a discussion. It lasted 5 days and 24 people voted. 14 people voted for Ken to be permabanned and 10 for him not to be. You could have voted for him to stay. You had your chance. It's too late now. I was the one that did the actual permabanning. So if you want to accuse anyone of being rash and censoring a fucking homophobic troll, you can accuse me. So that I wouldn't be accused of sweeping the momentous banning of the oh-so-important Ken DeMyer who was so important to the history of this wiki under the rug, I posted this announcement in the Saloon Bar. And what the fuck did you think Ken's long rambling essay in which he name checks me several times was about if you didn't know he'd be permabanned here? Spud (talk) 13:38, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
Banning him for being a homophobic troll? That is one of his more desirable qualities.--Mercian (talk) 16:09, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
@Spud Eleven mentions vs my three. I think you touched a nerve. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:45, 3 June 2020 (UTC)
Give me a break. Conservapedia is still there, he's posting his garbage like usual on there, and he's just copypasting his words on here. You'll likely be continuing as normal what you're doing, jeering at his little miserable act. You just shouldn't interact with him directly that's just the difference. All I'm asking is just housekeeping. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:45, 3 June 2020 (UTC)

Antifa fascists assault an old man in Ken's home town.[edit]

The fascist terrorists waded down the street and acting with great machismo violently pushed over a peacefully protesting elderly man and left him to bleed on the ground with none of them stopping to help or protest. Was it Antifa?--Mercian (talk) 19:30, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

Anti-fascist fascists. Sounds legit. Oxyaena Harass 19:56, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, not even these far right-wingers understand the ideology they're supposed to love so much. Wow. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:24, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
Don't miss the genuwine Antifa manual, "dropped ... during a riot" so breathlessly presented as a must-read. It's so heavy handed that any decent satirist would realize it's hopelessly over the top. I won't spoil any of it's greatest moments by citing them. But it is a must-read. Even Snopes can't believe they have to bother. Whoover (talk) 20:33, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
It's all bullshit anyway. The policeman's actions did not contribute to Mr Floyds death, it was Coronavirus[1], a disease CP is in denial about. How stupid are these protestors? They are protesting about a vastly overstated disease no more dangerous than mild flu claiming another victim at the same time not following social distancing rules. What a bunch of hypocrties.--Mercian (talk) 21:00, 5 June 2020 (UTC)
The great scholar Rob Smith gets confused in every post whether it is communist or fascist terrorists rioting against the mighty state and it's leader. Breaking the law and 1st amendment, violently dispersing a peaceful crowd so he could trespass on private property, threaten martial law and using his lackeys to violently silence opposition reminiscent of Joffrey in King's Landing is in no way fascism though. It's the actions of a divinely appointed great leader ousing with machismo. --Mercian (talk) 20:48, 5 June 2020 (UTC)

[2] I would not refuse to show my face for a charitable donation of $20 USD let alone $20,000. I have fought in 4 theatres of war, each time I was scared but every time I put aside my fears and did my job. Tell me the conflicts you have been to. I thought you had overwhelming respect for veterans and in 3 of the 4 cases we were working with or close to the American Army, even the time when one of their Apaches destroyed a British Warrior killing 8 infantrymen. I am bit of a Marty McFly when someone calls me yellow and you are a cowardly cunt. Pro sodomite sluts and whores.--Mercian (talk) 18:10, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

PS, we were understandably angry after the Apache incident and were not too happy with the Americans that day. We were up for a scrap, the American's were not. They ran away. Truth.--Mercian (talk) 18:22, 7 June 2020 (UTC)

Rob and Delusions of Grandeur[edit]

Rob sez - I know for a fact several prominent media people cull CP pages and MPR for ideas and talking points that they claim as their own and never give us credit. RobSLive Free or Die 19:47, 12 June 2020 (EDT)

Amazing. Who are these media people and how do you know? AceModerator 00:20, 13 June 2020 (UTC)

Unreconstructed racism from RobS[edit]

He really went off the deep end once Trump came to power--Hastur! (talk) 15:56, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

I think I;m going to be sick. Spud (talk) 16:14, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
I'd like RobS to give us a bit more on what really happened than "fake news." Guy who shot up the protest is a militia member who ran for city council on a right-wing platform and ran a Friends of the Albuquerque Police Facebook page. Is that fake news a conspiracy? A false flag? A black guy with a Steven Baca mask? Never happened? RobS must know. Whoover (talk) 16:21, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
He should make up his mind.One moment it's communists, the next fascists and then oxymoronically anti fascist fascists. One group who hold no responsibility are the actual fascist Trump and his lackeys. In the UK I was very disappointing to hear about the violence caused by the pro BLM protests until I discovered it was caused by the likes of the EDL and football thugs. Hitler blamed the Jews and communists for the world's ills and Trump and by extension Rob blames everybody he hates. Fuck Godwin's law, it's appropriate here.--Mercian (talk) 16:54, 16 June 2020 (UTC)
That is one of the absolutely most pathetic "red herrings" I have ever seen. The only fake news I've seen on this story so far (aside from the "whitewashing" of history done on Conservapedia as usual) is the fake news from Russia Today and others found on the "New Mexico Civil Guard's" now-deleted Facebook page.. Soundwave106 (talk) 17:20, 16 June 2020 (UTC)

Looks like we embarrassed him--Hastur! (talk) 04:39, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

Good. Spud (talk) 05:56, 17 June 2020 (UTC)
I would say his side are losing but I think they have already lost. The (English) Football Association are hot on political protests and symbolism. Even something as uncontroversial like "Support the victims of Grenfell" displayed by a player will result in a yellow card. Overt political support by a club is in no way tolerated and could result in heavy fines or even point deductions. One or two players revealed support for Colin Colin Kaepernick on the field of play and were banned for a game. But today this happened, the man dressed in black is the referee.[3]. If a crusty upper-middle classed classically conservative organisation such as The FA allow this to happen then the feeling at more liberal organisatons must be rapant.--Mercian (talk) 19:32, 17 June 2020 (UTC)

That's not what happened at all. I thumbnailed the background to the incident upon initial reports. As more reports came out, it not only corroborated what I originally posted, it added more detail. The portion I removed from MPR I was able to condense from one wordy paragraph to a sentence which I moved up in the headlines. The story, including the original MPR links, is permanently part of the 2020 Marxist uprising narrative with it's own subhead.

So no, you didn't embarrass me at all. You helped expose leftwing duplicity and racism. nobsTo Bob Mueller: Every dog has his day. 18:21, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

IOWs, Mexicans in New Mexico are proud of their Mexican heritage. They are descendants of Conquistadors and were never slaves.

The real reason why Trump's rally bombed, lack of access to hydroxychloroquine.[edit]

rofl still props for them admitting they had shitty turnout. I think Andy's gonna be swallowing his pride a lot more this year--Hastur! (talk) 06:23, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
There we go, this'll let Andy save face--Hastur! (talk) 15:24, 21 June 2020 (UTC)
Could one of you hydroxians please come here and explain your hypothesis? Because based on what you've said, the hydroxy must be taken before you start to feel sick i.e. five days before you 'get' COVID-19. Given that you can be contagious for days before you realize it, doesn't this mean that for your concept to work literally every single person in the USA would need to be on the hydroxy every day for the duration as a precaution? It's $15 a day per person at the lowest rates here in the States, but with a steep bulk discount of 66% off and would only be a mere fifteen-hundred million dollars a day. Of course that would require federal efforts to mitigate costs, and Trump seems to love fucking up the market and jacking up costs (see his PPE and ventilator comments with the governors and about a hundred other points of evidence), so that $1.5 billion could be forced to ten times that or more. And you'd also have to convince the die-hard Republicans who spit in your face when you ask them to wear a mask that these 'government drugs' weren't just going to make them gay or whatever nonsense Alex Jones farted out this morning.

His portion about the virus was one of his most unhinged moments. Paraphrase "If we do not test for "Kung Flu" then we will have no new cases and the virus will disappear." I'm not medical professional but I don;t think it works that way--Mercian (talk) 17:02, 21 June 2020 (UTC)

Would anybody be interested in helping me delete content copied from Conservapedia on another wiki?[edit]

I'm an admin on Religion Wiki (part of Fandom) that has several hundred articles copied from Conservapedia. I have decided that to be part of the solution instead of part of the problem, I have to delete all of them. If you'd be interested in helping me, contact me here, tell me your RationalWiki user name, if it's different from your Fandom one and, if I trust you I will make you an admin. Then you can go here and start nuking the fuckers. Spud (talk) 01:36, 26 June 2020 (UTC)

I've now deleted all the pages in the Articles with content from Conservapedia category. I've also found and deleted a few more that weren't in that category. I think I've got most of them.

Editing CP from morning until the wee hours of the night--Hastur! (talk) 04:44, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

I have been chatting with Ken fairly extensively as of late. He's actually not a bad person once you get past the weird and crazy beliefs. He has told me he wants to spend less time on CP to pursue personal goals so Rob has to rise to the mantle. AceModerator 05:14, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
Watch out, I have had friendly relations with Ken before, he then turned around and bit my hand off. That is why I have a go at him here, not because of his beliefs but because of his lack of trustworthiness.--Mercian (talk) 17:26, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
What did he do, if you don't mind my asking?--Hastur! (talk) 17:51, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
This is not exact but how I remember it and the jist is correct. Back in 2017 I praised him for showing occasional signs of being rational etc. He then wrote a few articles on how "Atheist Wiki user finds him less repulsive than other CP syops." I made an account there, posted once or twice than I got a firm welcome from him in the region of, "Atheists are far more likely to get cancer (I am recovering now but then it was still a huge worry), deny this and lose all credibility.", "Children going to pop concerts in England (some as young as 8) deserve to be killed by a terrorist because they are ""Pro sodomite sluts and whores"" deny this and lose all credibility before blocking me so I could not respond or deny. He has a record of doxing and reporting the doxed person to his employer citing "hate speech". He is an untrustworthy scumbag who yes, does on occasion rise above the madness, but still a scumbag.--Mercian (talk) 22:00, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
Unsurprising--Hastur! (talk) 22:06, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
Rob on the other hand has always been amiable but the lad has totally lost it. MPR after countless MPR postings have blamed everybody for the current unrest and pandemic except Pro Trump conservatives. White Power, White Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter, Antifa etc are all terrorist fascists, Nazis or communists(depending on his mood)under the control of Clinton/Obama/Gates/Soros/Add any conservative bogey man here. Someone who cannot see or accept that God's representative on Earth is the problem is not just closing their eyes, they have had them surgically removed.--Mercian (talk) 22:37, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
I think he may be reaching the point where his rhetoric and mental excuses can't hold the alternate reality together anymore against the facts. Once you see the cracks, they tend to get bigger and bigger until a reckoning happens. The response, then, is either to pause and re-assess, or to double down and push against the doubts and reach new extremes. Nobs has chosen the latter. Semipenultimate (talk) 15:07, 2 July 2020 (UTC)

i am guessing from the article he links to, hes tickled by the idea that people are struggling to ind an effective test for covid which would work in an instant to prevent asymptomatic infected people jumping on a ane or entering bars and restaurants when all that is needed is to check the sense of smell. for some reason he feels its simple and effective when compared to the various electronic thermometers being tried, in a similar vein to the day of the triffids (the film with howard keel) when they spend so much time and trouble trying to fnd a way to kill the triffids when at the end its simple salt water that does it. or in war of the worlds, its microscopic bacteria that ends the martians. its not belly laughs sure. i think thats what hes on about - im being generous here. the article he links to isnt nowhere near as convinced as he is. wishful thinking that there is a simple solution perhaps.

Andy is too far to the right to care about religion, his god is Trump. [11] This statement shows that he is putting all his eggs in the Navarro basket whilst continuing to denounce Facui, so that's pro life out of the window. He like his heroes care nothing if millions dies as long as Trump continues to sit on the throne, that's democracy and the rule of law (not including the jackboot) out of the window. The Trump presidency in general and the Covid 19 pandemic in particular really has shown Andy and his ilk's true colours. In November he will have nowhere to go. He had a chance to temper his extremism just a little and at least appear on the right side of history instead his has moved even further to right and sticks up his finger to all people, whatever race, age, political persuasion or age who do not follow his saviors goals religiously. A very bitter, twisted and sad man, just like his god Donald.--Mercian (talk) 00:10, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
It's all out in the open now. Catholic = conservative, Protestant = liberal. That's why the CBP was created, to correct the "mistakes" liberal bible thumping Protestants made. Even Andy's pre-Vatican II neanderthal experts don't want any part of this blasphemy and heresy. nobsTo Bob Mueller: Every dog has his day. 19:09, 20 July 2020 (UTC)
One man's heresy is another's Ninety-Five Theses. So in the sense that Catholicism had a great world-controlling power structure and Protestantism sought to end it and/or get a piece of the action (gross oversimplification but this is the fucking Internet), then yes, Protestantism could be viewed as representing the spirit of change and rebellion against entrenched power that you pigeonhole as 'liberal' i.e. in your mind 'evil/Satanic'. This highlights the plastic and changeable nature of religious belief over time. I know this upsets you, because you would prefer to believe that the way you relate to and interact with god is in the exact same way as your ancestors, and not subject to change over time. Semipenultimate (talk) 20:24, 20 July 2020 (UTC)

Yes, nobs, people get upset when you reveal uncomfortable truths about the concepts they've used as the foundations for their lives, and rather than look to incorporate such truths into their worldview and admit they're capable of making a mistake and/or being tricked by their earthly leaders, they turn inward even more. What luck that you happened to be born into the one true faith for which none of that applies, and you never need to grow or change. Semipenultimate (talk) 18:07, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

Some constructive criticism - it's great on rhetorical illustration and example but doesn't really engage with what Communism, in all its varieties, actually is. You could also tone down the invective and stop cherry picking your historical examples. That would, of course, involve learning a little about Communism.

A few days ago on CP, I asked a question on Talk:Main Page there in regards to who could replace Sen.

After reviewing his political positions... Um... Calling him a RINO seems... Um... how shall I put this? Stupid. Yeah, he backtalked the president, so what? First amendment. According to the Hill, he opposed an executive order and his reasoning for his position seems solid. Or at least internally consistent. Can you show me any laws he violated? Not articles on the drama, laws. If he wasn't legally allowed to do oppose that Executive Order, it'd shouldn't be too hard to demonstrate. If he was legally allowed to do so, um... tough shit? That doesn't really make him a RINO. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:00, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
Alright, that's mostly a good point to add. Just to note though, Sasse opposed Trump on tariff policies, echoing globalist sentiments.

The only thing I know about Sasse is from the Gorsuch hearings. He appears to be a team player. Whatever positions he has to take to please a segment of racist/communist/Democrat voters entrenched in his state has little or no bearing in national politics (remember the Cornhusker Kickback in neighboring Nebraska? they got rid of the communist SOB). As a result of the Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 (the year the GOP was founded), Kansas is Democrat and Nebraska is Republican. A Democrat in Nebraska, like Ben Nelson, or a Republican in Kansas like Ben Sasse, always walks a tightrope. Nobody outside those two states pays close attention (except possibly the MSM if they think they can exaggerate some bullshit or other). nobsBlack Guns Matter 22:26, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

Bullshit Rob. @LT In my opinion, and granted I am a leftist, calling someone a RINO should be reserved for someone whose political positions are well outside the official Republican party platform. Let me illustrate this a bit. If Bernie Sanders was registered as a Democrat, I'd have no problem with someone calling him a DINO, as the bulk of his policies fall outside those of said party. So, yes, I do find this to be a bit petty and ridiculous that you CPers hold such a position. Sasse is a loyal republican, and because he got angry at Trump for potentially hurting his state, which looks bad for him and his party, he gets called a RINO. I don't like the man, but that's just not right. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:45, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────You're missing the point. Calling someone a RINO has nothing to do with national politics. The cases of Ben Sasse and Susan Collins are excellent examples. Both are popular back home. Both represent a bi-partisan coalition of voters in their respective states. in a six year term, they have to look for something to be able to criticize Trump with to generate headlines backhome. They never oppose the party on big issues, such as the budget, Supreme Court nominations, or other important legislation. When the national news media has to take what is exclusively a local issue, and try to make a story out of it as if it's a national story, is evidence it's pretty weak. So at a White House cocktail party Sasse says, "Mr. President, I'm going to criticize you on such and such and may even have to vote that way." Trump responds, "Good. I'll even call you RINO, if that helps". nobsBlack Guns Matter 22:54, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

A true RINO or DINO is somebody who gets their RNC, DNC, RCCC, DCCC, RSCC, or DSCC funding cut off and looses committee assignments. It's rare, but it does happen occassionally. nobsBlack Guns Matter 23:07, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

By the way RobSmith, with "RSCC" and "RCCC", were you trying to refer respectively to the NRSC and NRCC? LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 23:12, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
Yes, yes, and yes. Also Phil GrammWikipedia in the 80s when he was a Democrat.
Don't underestimate the importance of the party funding of campaigns. In my state for example, Sen. Pete Domenici served as U.S. Senator for six terms in a Blue State. How is that possible? Easy. He cut a deal with other Democrat bigwig Senators decades beforehand to vote certain ways on certain budget issues with them. They in turn agreed to never spend any DSCC or DNC money in his state to defeat him. Hence, every Democrat opponent was totally dependent upon the state party and local donors, whereas he always had the backing of the national p[arty, as well as D.C. lobbyists. This kind of deal making is common in D.C.. Call it what you like, "the establishment", "the swamp", the "uniparty", "the Deep State" (usually applied to Executive Branch agencies, by longtime legislators keep the funding to it and get their phone calls returned when they need a favor for their constituents). nobsBlack Guns Matter 23:37, 12 August 2020 (UTC)

Do you have any specific sources for the information on Sen. Domenici? LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 01:51, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
About the deal he cut? Off the top of my head, no. But this is a very common practice. It's a little easier to spot. He was on the Senate Budget Committee with Bob Byrd the Grand Wizard and the fellow from Montana (I forget his name). It didn't matter what party controlled the Senate, these same guys wrote the Senate version of a budget bill every year that then had to be negotiated with the House and White House (IOWs, little or no cross-isle negotiation in the Senate itself). They brought home the bacon for their states (all three small, poor, states dependent on federal funding), and could trade or award federal funding for federal projects with Senators of other states.
What I said about his local challengers can be verified from FEC records.
Lemme give you an example of pork funding: the Albuquerque bus system is 80% subsidized by the federal government; Albuquerque is the home of Sandia Laboratories, one of 4 national laboratories. A commuter bus route runs from the suburbs to the door of the National Laboratory every morning at 4 AM. This is "national security". Never mind nobody rides the bus and they all drive their own cars. But this special subsidy probably goes back to WWII and the early Cold War. That's only one example. Truth be told, without federal money coming in the state, per capita income would be about the same as Juarez and Chihuahua, Mexico, about 1/3. Even with all this federal money - not possible without Dominici on the Budget Committee - our per capita is still only 3/4 of the national average.
In the House it's a bit different. It's more difficult to form cross-the-isle coalitions. The Rules are different and the Senate is a seniority system - Senators get to choose their committee assignments based on seniority. In the House committee assignments are assigned by kissing Leadership ass. Breaking ranks is no no-no. Senators have much more leeway. nobsBlack Guns Matter 03:47, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
In the House, AOC would be an example of a DINO when she came in; she has since learned much and straightened up. AOC's organization, Justice Democrats (and AOC herself) spent money to knock off incumbent party regulars. I'm not up to date on the immediate story, but she was told in no uncertain terms they she would receive no help from the DNC or DCCC if she continued funding primary challenges to against incumbent Democrats, for which she was actively soliciting fundraising for, together with a published targeted "hit list" of Democrats after she was "inaugurated". She stuck with Bernie against Biden and the establishment to the end. She mounted a challenge against Pelosi in January 2017. The New York party threatened to re-district her out of seat after the 2020 census. She now has come to an accommodation with the DNC and DCCC - she's ascended in power within the establishment, and has abandoned publicly soliciting money to challenge the DNC and DCCC. She'll fall in line like Kamala, forget Biden's racism and start singing his praises. By contrast, Rashida Tlaib has yet to endorse Biden. Unless Tlaib wants money for the Fall, she needs to shape up real quick. Otherwise she's on her own. nobsBlack Guns Matter 04:22, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
It seems that AOC is certainly shilling for her party establishment just enough to narrowly try avoiding a redistricting battle; she decided to endorse the far-left Sen. Markey over the latter's primary challenger Joe Kennedy III, who's even more far-left. LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 04:32, 13 August 2020 (UTC)

Very interesting discovery[edit]

Despite CP being down, I took a hint on a Quora forum somewhere regarding web proxies and used https://www.proxysite.com/ to successfully access Conservapedia; the only problem was that I couldn't edit. For some absurd reason, it seems that many of the other CP editors can access the site normally, but I apparently can't. What in the world is going on? I seriously have almost nothing better to do in my life currently aside from CP editing! LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 00:51, 15 August 2020 (UTC)

You seem like a nice enough, although earnest, kid, so I'll warn you that editing CP with a proxy has been grounds for getting banned and defamed by people like Karajou for being the sockpuppet of someone else who used the proxy and also got banned for being the sockpuppet of someone else who used the proxy who was also banned for being the sockpuppet of someone else who used the proxy. CP sysops routinely checkuser even established editors. Be careful. Also, editing this site has also been grounds for a ban on CP. Nutty Roux (talk) 01:43, 15 August 2020 (UTC)
Thanks for the advice, and the good news is that I've just found a proxy that allows for editing on CP. I'm aware of the CP rule against editing via proxy, and specified that in my comment there; regarding whether editing on this site might get me banned on CP, since nobs currently isn't banned there despite coming here, I wouldn't worry as much about it as compared to the editing-through-proxy concern.

Bizarre CP issues[edit]

Something bizarre is going on, or at least just happened at CP. I was editing the page on Jon Ossoff I had created about an hour ago, and all of a sudden a "404" error pops up. When the server loads, it shows a previous version of the site as evident on the "Special:RecentChanges" page. And now, it seems that either the cycle repeats between the two instances and/or generic error notices that keep popping up (just for specification, I'm using this site to access CP as a means to bypass "403 - Forbidden" pop-ups).

All I know for now regarding accessing the site is that if I don't use a proxy, this pops up. The problem at the moment now is that when the site loads, a cached version shows up where my edits made today and last night apparently don't exist anymore. This problem did happen quite a few months ago one time where a page creation of mine disappeared and I had to do it over again. LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 03:45, 17 August 2020 (UTC)
Also, right in between my most recent edit and the edits before that, the site loaded in the cached version at least once before loading normally. LTMay Dataclarifier be well! 03:47, 17 August 2020 (UTC)
It seems to be fixed, but it was clearly an Apache config problem, and there was no indication the content database was involved. LT, when I got in yesterday, it was by overriding a browser warning caused by the Apache web server not having a valid set of Secure Socket Layer certifications in its configuration. These are files that Conservapedia buys from an authority after proving that they are the owners of the site. That's required for https, the secure web protocol. https access to a site, as opposed to http, assures you are talking to whom you think you are, and can be a pain to set up properly. Yesterday, for a while at least, the SSL certs were current (not expired) but not properly configured. That's why I got the browser warning. All the 500, 403, etc. errors point to somebody messing with the Apache configuration and not getting it right. Whoover (talk) 21:44, 17 August 2020 (UTC)

Lock me out again, please[edit]

I made the mistake of reviewing CP: Kamala Harris and love what RobS done with the encyclopedic place. Off to a great start with "Kamala Harris ( pron. commie-la, Spanish Que mala) ..." Much easier than IPA, even if only RobS pronounces her name those ways. I also enjoyed the long exposition about Jim Jones.

I found the article illuminating. It shows me that she scares the holy shit out of Rob and his fellow travellers. The language they use (stuff I would have been uncomfortable with even during rock-and-roll-and-drugs-and-booze-and-lots-and-lots-of-women-and-drugs phase) suggests that she challenges them not just politically but emotionally and sexually. It's like they've never had a mutually respectful relationship with a woman, ever.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── It's amazing that out of a nation of over 325 million people, the Democrats couldn't come up with someone better than Joe Biden to run for president.

At least a restaurant manager or high school principal wouldn't be a hair sniffer nor would his/her son be a traitor to the United States.

Joe Biden is such a lackluster presidential candidate that he is not even going to get a dead cat bounce after the DNC convention.

Donald Trump is not a genius, but few dullards become billionaires and/or win the U.S. presidency against seasoned politicians.Rintintin (talk) 21:13, 22 August 2020 (UTC)

To the first, yeah no shit. But the public doesn't appear to care, or thinks it's acceptable to throw those issues under the bus to defeat what is in their view, the greater evil. To the second, Trump is not a smart man. All current evidence indicates that he's a moron who's going through the motions of being intelligent, a stupid man's impression of a leader. And more to the point, it really doesn't matter whether either of them is intelligent, merely who most people are willing to vote for. And short of some form of electoral interference, well... The data is very clear on this matter. You don't have to like it, but that's the cold hard truth. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:28, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
The data that most matters is: 1) Enthusiasm for the candidate which affects turnout (Internal battles within a political party suppress turnout and there is infighting amongst Democrats. Biden's performance during the primaries was weak). 2) Reliable likely voter data - particularly in battleground states (These polls are very more predictive, but more costly to compile) 3) Fivethirtyeight.com and their polling data got 2016 wrong. Your data is not compelling 4) Rasmussen correctly called 2016 election using its likely voter data. Present Rasmussen likely voter data: "The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll sponsored by Liberty Nation for Friday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove."[18] 5) Trump is an incumbent and incumbants usually win . 6) Peaceful protests favor Democrats. Rioting and looting favors law and order Republicans. 7) There are calls for Joe Biden to skip the presidential debates. Democrats are shaking in their boots. Let's get ready to rumble!

In the 2020 Presidential election, each State must appoint their electors by the following Tuesday on 10 November, 2020. But you're right. There will be no election night winner.

"Commie" is the tell in "Republican Convention gets 600% more viewers the Democrat Commiefest 2020" as to authorship.

I have no idea why more people watched the RNC on C-Span than the DNC (maybe they couldn't take the spinning on Fox?), but ignoring the 18.6 of the 18.7 million viewers who didn't watch the DNC on C-Span is typical bullshit.

Conservapedia in a post-Trump world[edit]

We all saw McCain and Romney get built up as the Greatest Republicans Ever by Andy, during their election campaigns, and then just as swiftly get demoted to RINOs after they left. Do you think Andy will do the same with Trump after Nov, as he goes in search of the new Great White Hope - I'm guessing Tom Cotton - or have they swallowed too much of the Koolaid? TerryH and Kara are too cowardly to stand up to him, anyway, but will Andy be able to drop Trump like the hot turd he is? RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 13:42, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

If Donald Trump loses in 2020, he will run in 2024. In such a scenario, he would start fundraising in 2021.
The 2020 loss would be blamed on the "China virus" and/or voter fraud.
While Joe Biden is not as far to the left as François Hollande, he has been pushed sufficiently to the left so that Trump will run against the "socialist Joe Biden".
Trump will be the Grover Cleveland of the 21st century and serve two nonconsecutive terms.
Anyone who thinks Donald Trump would not run in 2024 is underestimating the size of Trump's ego.Terrafirma (talk) 17:11, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Andy's mother wrote a book giving the conservative case for Trump. St. Phyliss annointed Trump and Andy will not lift his hand against the chosen one.
Should Trump lose the 2020 election, Trump will easily win the 2024 GOP presidential primary if he ran. And Andy would support him.
But all of this is premature. Biden has to get over the 3 presidential debate hurdles and have sufficient voter turnout to win. He is not a shoe-in candidate by any means.Terrafirma (talk) 19:23, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Trump would be too old to run for President in 2024. In the meantime, governors and members of Congress will step up to defend keys elements of the Trump agenda: (1) regulatory reform, (2) key holdings of the NLRB regarding union organizing, (3) Title IX reform at the Dept of Education, (4) food stamp reform at USDA, (5) prohibition of critical race theory training of the federal work force, among other things. No matter how you predict the outcome, many governors and legislators will take a front seat before 2024. Then there is Mike Pence, who has evangelical Christian support. (Jerry Falwell Jr., is no longer available to deliver that block to support Trump.) I think that Don Jr., Jared and Ivanka have too many open legal questions to run with a clean record in 2024. There will be a generational shift by 2024, and Andy will be sent out to tech pasture. Assuming that there is a large group of tech-savy Conservatives, they will find a platform lead by a younger and more charismatic leader than Andy by 2024. In fairness, the same is true about Jimbo Wales dropping out of the leadership of Wikipedia by 2024. Hclodge (talk) 19:55, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Andy's definitely lost that lovin' feeling for the Donald. Ken's initial version of COTY 2020 had Trump straight in at no.1, but Andy's first edit demoted him to 3rd, and subsequent edits have him now languishing in 7th place, behind such conservative titans as, um, Reps. Tom Massie and Andy Biggs. This is consistent with COTY '19, where Trump didn't even make runner-up after winning two years on the bounce.

I have to disagree with all your analysis of a post-Trump era should Trump loose. Personalities will not be the major factor. And you also have to look at the current implosion of the Democratic party as well.
There would be an immediate effort by the GOP establishment, led by Bill Kristol, to re-assert control of the GOP. And since the GOP establishment is better organized and entrenched, the Trump faction without a leader, despite being large in number and popular support, is at a disadvantage.
Then you have to consider the current defection of Blacks, liberals, moderates, and Hispanics from the Democratic party. Trump could take as much as 25% of the Black vote, and has certainly built a permanent base of conservative, middle class Black voters, under 40 years old who are not likely to return to the Democratic party anytime soon. This group likely can only expand. The Black monolith is exploding, and younger Blacks in the foreseeable future will vote like every other demographic group. This sends the Democrats back to the drawing board for a long-term strategy, whether they win or loose.
A charismatic leader is not likely to appear in either party over the next few years. But for a younger heir of Trump, Rand Paul or a Rand Paul like character most resembles Trump's ideas. nobsBlack Guns Matter 00:59, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
