It seems like it is just a new PR name for what the status quo has been trying to do for decades^[1].

If I understand the commentary from sources correctly^[2].

“Like some on the right, severe right, came up with this Project 25, I don’t even know, some of them I know who they are, but they’re very, very conservative,” Trump said. “They’re sort of the opposite of the radical left.”

“You have the radical left and the radical right and they come up — I don’t know what the hell it is, it’s Project 25,” he continued. “‘He’s involved in project — and then they read some of the things and they are extreme, they’re seriously extreme.

“But I don’t know anything about it, I don’t want to know anything about it.”

Project 2025 is led by the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, and more than a dozen former Trump administration officials.

The document includes plans to expand his executive authority, replace civil servants with loyalists, crush abortion rights, attack civil rights for LGBTQ+ people and impose an anti-immigrant agenda, among other policies.

He also claims the plan is “extreme,” but the document mirrors several policies the former president himself has endorsed.

“Project 2025 will not be ‘stopped’ by an unserious, mistake-riddled press release or a task force of House Democrats lacking a basic understanding of federal governance,” Roberts said in a statement.

I noticed the same thing; I thought it was on my end, hahaha. 

My YouTube link description shows up in Russian; it seems their server that gets the data for links has changed.

A guess: VPNs cause a similar thing to search engine results, where whatever language is the majority shows up in your search results.

Mark Halperin: Biden Will Drop Out Of 2024 Race, Will Not Endorse VP Kamala Harris [Ian Schwartz | July 18, 2024 | RealClearPolitics] ( www.realclearpolitics.com )

Newsmax's Mark Halperin reported Thursday afternoon that President Biden will drop out of the 2024 presidential race, will not endorse Vice President Kamala Harris, and instead call for an open convention in Chicago.

It is intriguing that we are both encountering the same political rumors.

Let us examine whether they move closer to the truth or simply perpetuate another rumor according to Media Insiders.

Bullet in the Head is a song by American hardcore band Rage Against the Machine, released as the second single from their 1992 eponymous debut album.

Similar labels are applied to you if you are truly antiwar.

Short trend, fetch is not happening at the RNC.

RNC Night 4 is live right now; it seems the trend is declining.

Looking through the video, I only see Donald wearing the ear bandage.

I think it will result in an increase in gun sales, like all the other times gun restrictions were being pushed by the government (and other lackeys of the owner class).


Second Amendment

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.


Advocates for tighter gun restrictions in Pennsylvania seized on the shooting to urge state lawmakers to pass bills already introduced into the state legislature that would expand background checks, temporarily remove guns from potentially dangerous people and raise the minimum age to purchase rifles similar to the one used in the attack to 21 from 18.

jimmydoreisalefty ,
@jimmydoreisalefty@lemmy.world avatar

Meanwhile, the gun rights group Minnesota Gun Owners Caucus, which was among the organizations that challenged the law, cheered the decision.

“This is a resounding victory for 18-20-year-old adults who wish to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms,” Bryan Strawser, the group’s chairman, said in a statement.

An Oklahoma teacher left her job after the state's Secretary of Education accused her of giving students "banned and pornographic material." The accusation came after Summer Boismier posted a QR code for the Brooklyn Public Library's "Books UnBanned" program. It allows anyone 13 to 21 years old to access the library's entire digital collection for free.

Links included in short article:

Recognizing Two Years of Books Unbanned

In April 2022, Brooklyn Public Library joined those fighting for the rights of teens nationwide to read what they like, discover themselves, and form their own opinions. Inspired by the American Library Association's Freedom to Read Statement, Books Unbanned is a response to an increasingly coordinated and effective effort to remove books from library shelves.

Oklahoma State Board of Education:

In light of recent events involving Norman High School English Teacher Summer Boismier, I am asking the Oklahoma State Board of Education to revoke her teaching certificate immediately. Upon review of the situation, the teacher resigned rather than face removal. There is no place for a teacher with a liberal political agenda in the classroom. Ms. Boismier's providing access to banned and pornographic material to students is unacceptable and we must ensure she doesn't go to another district and do the same thing. This action must be dealt with swiftly and with respect to all our kids and parents.

Teachers are one of our state's greatest assets and it is unfortunate that one of them has caused such harm and shame for the entire profession. This type of behavior will not be tolerated in Oklahoma and I speak for parents across the state who are demanding swift and immediate action.

  1. It only seems impossible until it's done. ― Nelson Mandela

  5. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. ― Nelson Mandela
  6. No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. ― Nelson Mandela
  7. If you want the cooperation of humans around you, you must make them feel they are important - and you do that by being genuine and humble. ― Nelson Mandela
  8. There can be no greater gift than that of giving one’s time and energy to help others without expecting anything in return. ― Nelson Mandela

  11. What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead. ― Nelson Mandela
  12. Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that the son of a mineworker can become the head of the mine, that a child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another. ― Nelson Mandela
  13. Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do. ― Nelson Mandela

The Mandela Effect

Thanks for sharing!

The Mandela effect refers to a situation in which a large mass of people believes that an event occurred when it did not. The term was originated in 2009 by Fiona Broome, after she discovered that she, along with a number of others, believed that Nelson Mandela had died in the 1980s (when he actually died in 2013).

Looking at the origin of the Mandela effect, some famous examples, as well as some potential explanations for this strange confluence of perceptions can help to shed light on this unique phenomenon.

Nope, one state solution would have to be forced by whichever US president is brave enough.

All of them seem to be puppets of the owner class, so I am not that hopeful on that front.

I don't see a point in continuing this line of conversation.

Your beliefs are yours, and that is fine.

I try to hold people I do not agree with and those I do to a higher standard; I do not outright follow what seems like MSM talking points or what the status quo wants us to believe of such people, especially when such labels are seen to be taken by some as outright gospel.

I have my own bias against certain people, but I will still try to take the time to directly listen to what they say until I make a sound judgment of their character.

I try to push against my own bias so I may change my views as I continue to learn, but I do not think it would fit with MSM and the status quo talking points.

I hope this explains a bit more about where we differ. 

TLDR: All is well; have a great day!

I have not changed; I continue to learn and shift my views a bit, but I am still posting views that get downvoted since I left Reddit.

Taking a look at the communities I manage now vs. when I became active in Lemmy World, I had similar core communities, but less.

You may have just seen some of the things you agreed with, and now you are seeing some of the things that you don't agree with.
