Top of the list is moves against US citizens reported at customs and immigration.

Analysis linked to by Shaun King refers to this as a shock event. So was the invasion of Iraq. Specifically, I mean. Intentionally.

4chan and 8chan are working the report-any-negative-Trump-commentary-to-the-IRS line. This is pretty important; it came out over the weekend that Mr. Trump filed with the FEC for 2020 about five hours after the inauguration, which may mean he's already under campaign rules, which means non-profits would have restrictions on what they can say without running afoul of 501(c)3 rules. The goal on 8chan is both to suppress opposition and to destroy non-profits. (They specifically appear to be into both as separate but related goals.)

Also, 8chan is treating the Quebec mosque attack as a false-flag. Not seeing that on 4chan ("half-chan"), but I didn't dig that hard.

Late addition: multiple reports of broad anti-QUILTBAG executive order, possibly as soon as late today(!), but nobody really knows. There's a twitter account claiming to be anti-Trump POTUS staff, which I consider a honeypot until proven otherwise - but their estimates have been decent so far. (Which does not make them _less_ of a honeypot.) They're saying it's real, and end of the week.

IF YOU HAVE ANY LGBTQ GOVERNMENT ISSUES THAT NEED FINALISING, FINALISE THEM NOW. IF YOU'RE ADDING SOMEONE TO INSURANCE, DO IT TODAY. IF YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED NEXT WEEK, GET A QUICK CIVIL CEREMONY TOMORROW. We don't know how bad it'll be, but with Mike Pence involved, it's reasonable to assume it'll be pretty bad.

It's January 30, 2017; this is the news )
