The other day, he tweeted something from a site called MAGAPILL, because they’d posted something praising him for his ‘accomplishments’. Here’s what else MAGAPILL endorses.
It’s an astonishing expression of paranoid insanity. You can get lost in all the bizarre details.
We’re using HAARP, DEWs, and satellite lasers to control the weather. GMO crops are agents of control. Lone gunmen are false flags to encourage gun control.
We have off-planet secret space programs. CERN is somehow tied to 666? Bilderbergers, Knights Templar, and Luciferian Rituals. George Soros. What is it with George Soros? I don’t know anything about Soros. To me, he’s an old guy with an undeservedly large fortune, just like all the other rich fucks, nothing more. That he sometimes endorses progressive causes doesn’t seem to warrant the foaming-at-the-mouth hatred he gets.
I’m also bewildered by the fondness of MRAs and Nazis for an old Keanu Reeves movie. Why all the Matrix allusions? It’s really strange that the fascists of today saw a movie by Lilly and Lana Wachowski and decided that yes, that was the uniform for their movements.
Everything about these guys, Donald Trump included, simply screams warped and dangerously demented perception of reality. And they’re running the country? Goddamn.
If you really want to zoom in on that mess, here’s a link.
The lack of Reverse Vampires makes this chart very suspect.
Since that disaster website praised Trumplestiltskin (wants others to spin straw into gold for him), why would anyone expect anything rational to come from there?
For many decades now I’ve suspected that there is a malady of culture that is analogous to the mental disorder schizophrenia. It has a diverse range of popular elements and iconic standards, just like the mental disease. This continues to support that supposition.
MAGAPILL certainly does look like a bin for the certifiable; such an paranoiac view of what constitutes an “accomplishment”. E.g., “February: Purging the State Department of Obama loyalists”. Do they have no idea how much that resembles the USSR?
(Also, doesn’t it bother anybody that, according to their own research, that was his ONLY government accomplishment for February 2017? I suppose they’d tell me something like, it’s a short month, hard to actually get anything done…)
Oh, and by-the-by: is there an image of that chart somewhere that’s larger than 500 px? I can’t read all the insanity at that size, it’s too pixellated.

Every tweet from “45” is deranged lunacy. Why isn’t under “supervision” tells me we are totally infested with lunatics in control of the “power”
Yes all the scare quotes were deliberate
The Matrix portrays a world that isn’t what it seems, with a hidden layer of reality beneath the surface, discoverable by those in the know. This, in their own way, is what conspiracy theorists maintain, and how they imagine themselves.
Also it had a lot of guns.
PZ Myers says
Added a link to the raw insanity.
I can read just enough of the chart to see that it even refers to The Matrix. Hopefully that’s metaphorical, but I’m wouldn’t be entirely surprised that they actually believe there’s a realer reality behind our apparent reality. And, believe that there’s a pill…a red pill…a red cap “Make America Great Again” pill…that will strip the blinders from your eyes so you can see the realer reality. You can then do slow motion wire-fu acrobatics in bullet time while bashing replicant Agent Smiths.
It’s jut amazing that anyone would take Hollywood seriously enough to use it as a metaphor. Wonder what the Wachowskis might say about it.
Incidentally, I see a list of “Big Tech.” They list Google, Amazon, Twitter, and FaceBook, but not Apple Inc. Interesting omission given that Apple is bigger. They don’t include Musk or Peter Thiel which would seem to be right up their alley.
Tabby Lavalamp says
Well, at least this time the Jews are apparently sharing power behind the scenes with the Catholics, so… progress?
Well, I’m going to bite it and say it: Matrix is philosophy for idiots. It is a very well-made movie but there is nothing intellectual in the movie, there is no thought provoking scene in the movie. It is pure entertainment with the fake taste of profound thought. It is philosophy for dummies, for people who rather watch an action movie than to pick up a serious science book.
The diagram is sorta similar to a megaplot that David Icke would depict. I can’t make it out entirely but it seems to lack Illuminati and Reptiles. Bloodlines are important. Points for Bilderbergs and Bohemian Owl worshippers.
Soros is a retired hedge funder so kinda shady in that regard, but has interesting ideas counter to dogma of rational actors in a market. We project our assumptions which kinda create a reflexive pseudo-reality. Idolizer of Popper, hence Open Society foundations.

I see that the CIA also cannot be trusted.
Trump tweeted this today:
Hair Furor wants to cast doubt on every source of information outside of his control. That includes most media outlets, the intelligence agencies, and, well, almost everyone.
Ed Seedhouse says
I do not see Gary Kasparov in that picture, so the secret is still safe.
I wonder if they think the lunar landings where fake and how to reconcile with secret off planet bases

Not at all unfortunately, more than once I have heard someone make an assertion about something in history and realize that they were confusing “real” history with the movie or TV show.
Galileo’s “But still it moves” is a classic but there are many others. People may believe that “Braveheart” is accurate history.
Iris Vander Pluym says
Not a single mention of the Squirrelpocalypse? These d00ds are posers.
What is it with George Soros?
The nutters have to have a few arch-fiends and Soros seems to have been elected as the current leader. Maurice Strong was up there with Soros in the One World Order Conspiracy until he died.
I don’t think there is any logic in the selection except that a candidate needs name recognition and must be a bit left of Hitler in political stance.
@ 11 Lynna, OM
I see that the CIA also cannot be trusted.
Even a stopped clock is correct twice a day.
That’s an easy one. The off-planet bases, including those all over the moon, are 50-1000 times times more advanced. There’s no post-1972 Earth technology visible in the NASA videos and images of the moon landings, so they’re obviously fake.
I don’t think this proves your president is a certifiable madman. He is too intellectually lazy to have gone past the list of his “accomplishments”.
Other evidence suggests that he is dangerously unhinged (technically, barking mad?) but this probably just shows that he hates to read past whatever panders to his ego.
They’re also usually Jewish, for some unfathomable reason…
The Matrix part may be influenced by Icke. He’s really into movies. They Live with Roddy Piper.
There’s been a sick minded narrative out there accusing Soros of collaborating with Nazis in his youth. Major distortion and misconstrual but makes demonizing him stick better for those who want it to be true:
jrkrideau @16: I’m embarrassed to admit that I was carrying a bit of fake “history” around in my head about the Council of Nicea that I picked up from The Da Vinci Code until I recently found out that it was exaggerated at the least. Not the Mary Magdalene stuff but the background that Dan Brown set up that idea with, I just assumed was more-or-less accurate.
Some people are quite excited about all this.
I have long thought that those on the extremes of the left and the right tended to be delusional and enthralled by self-motivated emotional reasoning rooted in their own personal history of psychological and emotional abuse .
There have always been such people the big thing now is that a confluence of history have brought too many of them too much power bringing us very close to global disaster for comfort.
it is all too depressing at times. I must remember I am also vulnerable to the same kind of emotional effects on my reasoning that I can not tell the future and I may be missing some information. over looking some details. some trends.
So I must just keep going on and try to do the best I can.
Personally, I prefer the aesthetics of the Church of the Sub-Genius cosmology. Better graphics.
Many fascinating facts in this chart.
“Secret space programs (with technology 50~1000 more advanced than the tech on the surface of the Earth)” – but then I bet they don’t yet have our ability to measure progress in dimensionless integers.
“Use movies/pop music to seed consciousness, generate emotions that let’s the Cabal use our mass consciousness to manifest their goals” – but fortunately, you can see through this ploy by watching Hollywood’s The Matrix.
“Weaken pop” – the most dreadful conspiracy of all, huge if true!
Unclefrogy @ 27:
Please don’t. You may well be correct where some people are concerned, but plenty of us with a history of various abuses and we aren’t reaching for paranoia, delusions, or conspiracies.
Ah ,i knewed it all along .I think even glen beck would find that chart hard to swallow ,he might be jealous that it has a lot of pretty figures and colours though .
From my admittedly-cursory examination of “MAGApill,” I don’t think it’s a site run by conspiracy loons. That chart is just a little too polished, and those tweets follow the rules of grammar too well.
Sure, the stuff on the chart is batshit, but the way it also delegitimizes some actual concerns as it feeds conspiracy addicts makes me suspicious. “Oh, so you have grave concerns about the unchecked power of US intelligence agencies? You must be one of those crazies that think that HAARP is a mind control machine, then. Oh, you think corporate mergers creating virtual monopolies is a bad thing? Let me guess: it’s all a plot by the Jewish lizard-pope.”
I’m pretty sure the people who made this shit know exactly what they’re doing, and it’s not ‘exposing the truth.’ I don’t think they believe this crap. Not because I think that no one believes it, because some people clearly do, but just because it’s too neat. And no, I don’t think Trump himself has a hand in it. He’s too stupid for this kind of subterfuge. But the people who helped him win the election? This is right up their alley.
Yeah no. It actually says a few very important things, just not the important things you’re looking for.
It’s not about conspiracies or the nature of reality. It’s about being forced to conform and finding yourself.
You’re looking for grand statements about society and human nature – old men’s philosophy. That’s not what it is, and of course you can’t find that in it.
It’s about being something society hates for no good reason, and finding the courage to fight back. It’s about being silenced and named (“Mr. Anderson”) and defined by the establishment, and ultimately refusing to tolerate it (“My name… is NEO!”).
It’s about COMING OUT, dude. It’s the wish fulfillment fantasy of two then-closeted trans women, who even then knew they couldn’t sell a story about who they really were – even ‘Switch’ was altered by studio meddling – so they wrote a metaphor about a generic cis white guy instead. They’ve admitted this in interviews since Lilly came out: the Red Pill is, and always was, estrogen.
You’re looking for deep dude philosophy and mad you can’t find it. That’s because the philosophers in the Matrix aren’t Hume and Kant and Nietzsche; they’re Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera and Julia Serrano and Jennifer Boylan and Janet Mock. It’s not about deep thoughts with a snifter of brandy by the fireside; it’s about throwing a motherfucking brick because you can’t take it any more.
And it is entirely plausible this story was never for you.
Abbeycadabra @ 33:
And it’s a fuckin’ pity that the people who most need to realize that seldom do.

Boy, does that make for some irony given who’s really adopted the term.
Darn it. Every since Firefox updated a couple weeks ago, I haven’t been able to get HTML tags to work right.
Microraptor, that’s BBcode. For HTML, you need to use the pointy brackets: < >.
*Sigh* I wish we did have off-planet, secret space programs. That would mean that we’ve got some kind of esoteric propulsion system — something that doesn’t require strapping people onto the top of a glorified bottle rocket and firing them at escape velocity into space hoping they don’t get killed in the process. If we do have such a propulsion system why are we still making jet planes? Why are we still burning stuff to generate electricity? And, more importantly, why don’t I have a flying disc to take me to the moon or anyplace else I want to go? I want answers!
Ah, thanks Caine. I’d been using a plugin that would automatically tag highlighted or copied text for you, but it’s no longer compatible with Firefox and there don’t appear to be any replacements for it yet.
Gregory Greenwood says
More idiots that think the X-Files is a documentary series rather than straightforward entertainment. They always think they are Fox Mulder, bravely stating that ‘the truth is out there’ in the face of oppressive power, but actually are much closer to Giorgio Tsoukalos – hopelessly lost up the metaphorical rectum of his own self importance.
At first glance it seems as though the internet spawns these types of people, but the truth is they have been rattling around since time immemorial – they just have a platform now, a digital soapbox from which to scream their paranoid delusions into the ether.
It surprises me not one whit that Trump likes them – so long as you serve to fluff his ego, Trump is very undiscriminating about who he lends his seal of approval to.
Apparently we’re out of milk because so many flights have been cancelled lately.
This DEW line weather control sucks.
