So Q is like an End of the World cult. When their prediction date passes without anything happening they'll just recalculate a new day for trump to take over.

What a way to live.

It's been this way for a while. Every date they predicted mass arrests have come and gone, Trump's re-election didn't happen, and obviously, Trump won't be inaugurated on the 4th. I look forward to seeing what their next prediction is.

Personally, I'm disappointed that they didn't stick with the theory that Trump and Biden traded faces.

Great theory, assholes.

Trump's hotel is empty, rooms are dirt cheap and he still can't put heads in the beds.

But March 4th? A basic room will set you back $1,500 a night. It's a Grift. With Trump, it's always a Grift.

I would compare them with Millerism. It's just too bad that they haven't given away all of their possessions because "the kingdom of The LORD" is at hand.

You know what other old building was ground zero for a cult conspiracy?  Someone needs to see if the old post office's roof cap was made out of a magnesium-tungsten alloy.

Considering it was built between 1892-1899 as a post office (an example of Richardsonian Romanesque architectural style, part of the Romanesque Revival architecture of the 19th-century), it's pretty apparent is has aboilsutley nothing to do with the current owner.

Not defending Trump, just pointing out the style far predates him.

That's the only way the hotel makes money.  The gulf states aren't renting it out anymore.

The Old Post Office, listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Old Post Office and Clock Tower, is located at 1100 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington, D.C. It is a contributing property to the Pennsylvania Avenue National Historic Site.[1]
It succeeded an earlier 1839 edifice-the General Post Office-a building of the Classical Revival style, which was expanded in 1866 on F Street NW. This building was later turned over to the Tariff Commission and several other agencies.
The Old Post Office construction was begun in 1892 and completed in 1899. The building is an example of Richardsonian Romanesque, part of the Romanesque Revival architecture of the 19th-century United States. Its bell tower is the third tallest structure, excluding radio towers, in Washington, D.C.
It was used as the city's main General Post Office until 1914 at the beginning of World War I. Afterward, this Pennsylvania Avenue landmark structure functioned primarily as a federal office building. It was nearly torn down during the construction of the surrounding Federal Triangle complex in the 1920s and 1930s. In the 1970s, it was again threatened and nearly demolished to make way for the proposed completion of the enveloping Federal Triangle complex, the proposed buildings to be of similar Beaux Arts styled architecture government offices built in the 1920s and 1930s.

While I know that the best thing that could happen would be that the whole thing flutter outs as a big nothing on the 4th, there is a tiny part of me that wants to see the most hardcore Trumpers attempt a second insurrection against a fully prepared Capital defense, backed by the National Guard, and with several other agencies in place to smack down the Trumpers.

In the early 90s, I worked as a tour guide in college.  Your standard bus trips to DC or Toronto for high school and middle school groups.  At the time, The Old Post Office was a food court/shopping mall.  It was a great place to feed 5 busloads of kids, give 'em all $5 and 90 minutes and set them free.  We tried to fit lunch there to coincide with touring the FBI Building and/or Ford's Theater as they're very close to the building.

Are they going to make the building levitate?

Fun fact you can go to the top of the tower there for the view and they can't stop you, part of the lease on the building.

And my BiL company did the floor there and yes he did get paid, I asked.

really, 8 years and no one sent you the guidebook.  I knew the Illuminati should never have been chosen to be the recording secretary, they can't even get new members the guidebook.  I'm going to report this at the next meeting of the Tri-lateral commission.  This is not acceptable.

My favorite far right conspiracy theory du jour is that Q was really a Deep State op all along and by telling people to "Trust the Plan" and promising 'big things' just over a constantly moving horizon, they ere lulling Trump supporters to sleep and preventing them from mobilizing to take the country "back"  by taking to the streets in support of DJT.

I REMEMBER THAT!! Wow thanks, that brought back so many band geek memories....I wonder if they ever got the cheap fried food smell out of the building. I can just picture someone in the lower floor rooms waking up in the middle of the night with an explained craving for Great Steak fries.
