Dear MAGA: Open Topic 20181114

This intermittently re-posted open thread is VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA world.  We ask that people NOT duplicate material posted to the Treehouse open threads, unless it’s REALLY IMPORTANT.  We expect things that are more relevant to the Q community to show up here.

Say what you want, comment on what other people said, comment on people’s comments.  Keep it civil.  Treehouse rules, but expect lots of QAnon.

Common Core.
That is another one of those Orwellian-esque titles for a thing that is so insidious that it must be cloaked with misleading words.
Let’s hope that Betsy DeVos has been busy ripping that horrible program out by the roots.
She has been quiet, though.
But I am hoping for the best.
Mick Mulvaney has been quiet too…but I doubt that he has been sitting around.

phoenixRising

No, our Carolina guy has pencil in hand, reorganizing and sometimes eliminating agencies. GO MIKE!
POTUS mentioned at one of the last rallies that wrt regulations he (POTUS) had insisted that for every new regulation added, at least 3 be eliminated. However, the number of those eliminated were much higher, sometimes 26 for 1 (am I recalling that correctly? It’s late, and I am not experiencing as many synapses as when I was younger 😉
I don’t have any info on Betsy, but perhaps Mike could have coffee with her and get her up to speed?

wheatietoo

You’re remembering that correctly about the Regulations…except I think Potus has said 22 eliminated for every 1 new one.
He may have updated that ’22’ to 26 at the rallies, though…because it might be more now.
While I have watched most of the rallies, sometimes I don’t hear every word.

Plain Jane

Whatever is being done about CC, there will be much foot dragging by many school districts because of text or computerixed text purchases.
Plus younger teachers who have been trained in it will have to re-orient their thinking, but many will still bring their college programed pro-CC bias into their teaching.
Another huge problem with undoing a program CC is the text companies themselves. Will they be on board to offer good texts, or will they drag their feet. Do they really desire a MAGA America or…?
When I was on the public school board back in the dark ages, only two out of five members even looked at the texts to be adopted. I brought home the texts to be considered adoptable by school districts, by the state of Indiana. Another mom SB member and I sat on my loving room floor and scrutinized texts to be approved each year. Only two parents helped us.
This was in the early 1970s before the internet, and long distant phone calls were very expensive. We established com with a very informed group of parents in then conservative Texas, which gave us heads ups. Big, big job to undo infiltration of the snakes in the system.
—————-
p.s. We found a health book series that was on the state approved list for district adoptability that was absolutely hideous. IIRC, the worse of the grade level text was either grade 5 or 6. The chapter was on SUPPOSEDLY warning kids to stay away from drug addictions.
In the drug chapters, the text emphatically stated that chocolate was an addiction similar to heroin and cocaine, and that many people are addicted to chocolate. They had a large close up photo of chocolate bar, someone shooting up in the arm vein, another photo of someone snorting with a rolled up dollar bill. NICE TUTORIAL for the yet uninitiated.
As a side note, about five of my friends and I joined a large group of parents marching in protest of their school board (in another town) where that health text series was adopted in defiance to the parents.

Sorry for the long dissertation.

MysticRose80

I see stories like this and feel so sorry for friends and family, as their children are stuck in those systems (not everyone can jump on alternatives like home-school or private school).

NebraskaFilly

Yeah, and Lyin’ Canadian Ted tried to get homeschools, religious, and private schools included in Title I federal funding, which would have resulted in FORCING them to teach via Common Core standards!!!!
https://freedomoutpost.com/ted-cruzs-federal-education-choice-kills-the-america-dream/

MysticRose80

Whoa, I was not aware of this! Thanks for sharing, NF. Just another reason to proceed with extreme caution when it comes to Lyin’ Ted. Guess he didn’t expect people to research and/or have an understanding of Title I.

NebraskaFilly

No doubt – he CANNOT be trusted – PERIOD! He also well knows that he is NOT Constitutionally eligible to be President!

judyw

NF, I would give you at least 2 likes for that but since that’s impossible, I’ll just say I agree Cruz knows.

NebraskaFilly

I have many, many links saved from the past 5+ years. To everyone here – don’t hesitate to ask if I might have a link about various subjects – there is a good chance I’ve got one……somewhere…..LOL!

Emeraldstar

I watched the entire video you posted yesterday (the first one, on 1871), and it fits with much of what I’d read on the deep-dives.
Thanks!
I think the time isn’t right, yet, for intentional mass-disclosure of this stuff – it can be very demoralizing, because it’s the ULTIMATE red-pill.
Btw, the point isn’t whether it’s right, or part-right, or wrong – even though there are sources to use to substantiate much of what was presented.
It’s like the two methods accountants use, for tracking inventory – “FIFO” (First In, First Out) and “LIFO” (Last In Last Out). The only way to solve this problem is the latter method – take care of the most recent problems, then work backwards.
That why I mentioned that right NOW isn’t the right time to get into this.
Also, for those who haven’t yet been exposed to the FULL extent of the corruption, and the historical reasons why it exists – it may be too much. It’s one of the ULTIMATE red-pills, and should be (IMO) prescribed with extreme caution.
VERY glad, though, that you posted it. I hope people save it to their hard-drives, and view it LATER (for many), when it won’t be such a shock.
I bet these videos won’t be available in the near future …

andrew1979

i have been deep diving since my teens – over 30 years now – so if people are just starting this they will probably have little chance to even scratch the surface before most info is scrubbed. when something disappears then you know there is a reason for that and it isn’t because of racism/antisemetism (same thing different term to confuse and get people riled up but i will not expand on that)

judyw

Thanks, Emeraldstar for referencing those videos. I wanted to save them to watch later but had forgotten so it’s nice to have a reminder. So much great info being shared here, it’s hard to keep up!

Sylvia Avery

NF, I did not know that. Oh my gosh. One of my hot button issues is the education system and how it has been completely overtaken by Commies.
(I’m sorry, I just don’t know what else to call them. In my youth the bad guys were Commies and this crop of bad buys who are assaulting us these days seem like Commies to me, so my shorthand for leftists, globalists, fascists, whoever and whatever they are is just plain COMMIES.)
The only small safe harbor available has been some of the religious schools and homeschoolers. The idea of surrendering that to Common Core! Very upsetting.

NebraskaFilly

Commies, globalists, NWO, it’s all the same, isn’t it! This is why I fear Lyin’ Ted over and above others – he is SO very good at this kind of obfuscation!

fleporeblog

Wolfmoon congratulations on opening up this site! There are a few Treepers that have been banned from CTH that I am going to recommend join your site (Georgiafl & SteveinCo).

A.D. Everard

Hey, good to see you here, Flep! Great that you can contact others.

Sylvia Avery

So THAT’s what happened to Georgiafl! I have noted her absence and wondered. Thought she probably got tired of the anti Sessionista drubbings.
So very glad you are here and glad you will refer others. I think Wolfie is building something special here.

fleporeblog

She and Steve have popped in on this site! Hopefully they will become active participants.

Sylvia Avery

Oh good, I’m really glad! Enjoyed them both and so sorry they were banned.

James Wood happened to be on the East Coast when the fires in California broke out… for days he has used his twitter following (almost 2M) to set up a kind of community HELP board to assist those in the path of the fires to get help evacuating, to get information on loved ones that were either missing or out of communication, to help with transport for horses and shelter for pets, etc., etc.
https://twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/1062569988459036672
If you remember POTUS was widely criticized for his tweet while in France wherein he mentioned that California must begin to do proper forest management. The fires occur again and again and California does nothing in the way of prevention… they do however continue to ask for federal dollars. Some suspect that most of that money goes toward the tremendous debt that California has accumulated. POTUS has been and remains compassionate
about the suffering.
When I first saw this latest image (posted above) a most chilling thought occurred to me. In my view there is nothing the Globalists would not do to this country and its people. We are indeed at war… Macron and Merkel both spoke this past week-end of establishing a military for the EU. Well, one doesn’t need bombs when a few matches will do the job. (I hope that is my bad thought for the week.)

wheatietoo

You’re not the only one who is suspicious about the ‘wildfires’ in CA, phoenixR.
There have been a lot of reports…on the ground type of reports…of some very Strange Things that have been happening:
— Cars with holes burned straight down through their hoods, with holes burned cleanly through the engine blocks to the ground.
— Trees and bushes burning from the inside-out…with the leaves and exterior branches untouched and not burned…leaving a red hot smoldering hole in a tree trunk, with the rest of the tree intact.
— Before the fires started, people woke up to find a layer of a ‘white substance’ covering their vehicles — it was Not Ashes…it was some sort of chemical.
— Burn patterns out on the hillsides show the dirt charred in a sort of ‘splash pattern’ with the woody bottom core of bushes burned…but the leaves remaining, untouched and not burned. The charred dirt spreads out in the direction that water would take, if it were moving fast…but there is green vegetation left, not wilted or burned, that is left growing upright out of the blackened dirt.
— Pictures and videos of roads where a line of cars with overhead powerlines are charred and melted…with the surrounding forested areas still intact and unburned. Bodies in the charred cars look as though they were caught…without time to even get out of their cars and run.
I saw some of these videos over on the

wheatietoo

Wow. My comment above just suddenly Posted…on it’s own…without me hitting the ‘Post Comment’ button.
Weird.
Anyway, I will finish it here:
I saw some of these videos over on the Qresearch board, and now Youtube is censoring them or deleting them.
Which is strange…because there is nothing about ‘politics’ in these vids, nor is there anything that violated the terms-of-service rules.
There was one with charred bodies still in cars…but Youtube allows that sort of thing all over their site.

shannynae

Thank you for the info on this fire. I guess that I will admit that I am a CA Fire Truther…..I mean that I strongly believe that they were intentionally set, Q has said as much but even before his post my spidey senses were tingling. My heart just aches for the innocent lives, displaced families and animals.

phoenixRising

I followed Q closely and went to the research boards at each drop, using the long series of numbers at the top. Then there were the attacks and the moving of the boards and now I don’t know how to access the current research boards. Can you help me with that shannynae?
wrt the fires… I did not see the Q drop you’re referring to… I was going to ask here if Q had said as much, but had not as yet.
I can understand your strong belief… in fact I intuitively share it, my spidey senses!
My heart goes out to all who have and are suffering… stay safe shannynae, and God bless you.

Go to canon.pub for all his posts. Up in the left top corner there is a search box. If you type in the word “fires” it will bring up all the posts on the fires. The latest one is Nov 10. The one I just posted is from the fires this summer…July.
God bless you too, dear friend.

qanon.pub………..spell checker keeps changing it to canon…..grrrrrrrr! haha

daughnworks247

Same here. Spidey senses on overload.
Deeply admire James Woods efforts and turning Twitter into a GOOD use.
Have not seen Q post anything specific. .

phoenixRising

Ohh that is chilling wheatie…
So many images that can’t be easily explained. Not your ‘wildfire” scenario for sure.
Praying for all of you in California. I can’t imagine what it must be like to live in a truly blue area, that once was red. Thinking of my beloved South Carolina which is red/red, and imaging it turning blue. Not good images. My neighbor Georgia is troubling enough.
What to say what a treat to read the real you here… the one who is so savvy wrt Q, so red pilled. Of course I never saw that side of you at CTH as you never engaged with those who attacked Q followers (I steered clear of them too!) I appreciate all you bring here wrt Q and being ‘awake’ … stay safe and God bless you.

wheatietoo

Thanks, phoenixR…it’s good to see you here too!

Sylvia Avery

Phoenix, I love Wheatie. She and I were kind of part of the Night Crawlers as Gunny called us so we were reading and posting when the board was kind of quiet and empty so I got to read a lot her stuff. She is very sharp, very observant, very knowlegeable.
Phoenix, I didn’t know you were so knowledgeable about Q. I had absolutely no idea. I appreciate the time and energy you have devoted to learning about Q and understanding the message.

daughnworks247

Great to see Gunny, Phoenix, Wheatie and you too, Sylvia. Loved the nightcrawlers and it was a pleasure to take the time to read and absorb their work. I have to work overseas hours, sometimes waiting on a call. You guys helped me through many quiet nights and taught me so much. Forever grateful.
As to phosphorus, the idea of a chemical fire makes sense. I use a great deal of it in fertilizers, especially the calcium phosphates for rhizomes like Iris. These fertilizers are always stored outside of our regular co-op where I buy and I was always advised to store them outside of our garden workshop. Just now putting 2+2 together from high school chem class. Yeah, phosphorus is highly flammable and can be unstable. It’s the white tip on a wooden match.

phoenixRising

Hi Sylvia,
we’re learning about each other here, aren’t we 😉
I’ve been diggin’ since JFK was assassinated!
Once you wake, you can’t go back to sleep, right?

Emeraldstar

One cannot “unsee” what one has seen.
There’s no going back …

Chicago->Arizona

wheatietoo,
Could be white phosphorus or a hybrid thereof.
White phosphorus (willy peter) causes similar damage. The munition is used for smoke screen , illumination and incendiary munitions…there are more nefarious uses against the enemy that I won’t describe.
Water will not extinguish. You have to cut off the oxygen supply to end the chemical reaction.

wheatietoo

Yeah, I have heard of that stuff.
There are witness reports of it looking like a ‘chemical fire’.
Let’s hope that someone took samples of that mysterious ‘white layer’ of stuff on the cars.
Although…talking about it might be dangerous to their health.

Chicago->Arizona

wheatietoo,
If WP came into contact with animals ; the animals will have burn holes down to the bone. Not likely they will find any carcasses , the animals probably would be caught up in the fire and charred.
Hopefully , no animals came in contact with WP.

wheatietoo

I shudder to think how ghastly that would be.

andrew1979

watch how none of this will be explained. questions will be met with accusations. and like someone mentioned above – evidence is already being suppressed and removed so your only way to refute them is saying you saw something online that is now gone…
crazy times folks.
it is like over at the other site this morning someone brought up 9/11. go on andcget out of here withvyour crazy conspiracy theories the posters said. same people that also know we are well and truly living a conspiracy right now. if you can comprehend the scale of what happened on that day and all due respect to those affected, NOT question it, then i guess you think that getting out the vote will help too.
our “right to vote” has been commandeered long ago to mean nothing more than a pacifier, a carrot on a stick, the pot of gold, it is only a right in name only. but since it is one of our most sacred rights they had to get control of it because they knew people would fight for it and defend it, even when compromised.

phoenixRising

PERVERSE is an excellent word for what is happening.
W, I am so glad for this sanctuary… I am starting to read all the previous threads. A wealth of info I’m sure. So many posters here that are Treepers… but I didn’t know they were also Q followers when I was posting at the TH. You did the right thing in preparing this site for Q followers at CTH, imho. Very prescient of you. Again, thank you. God bless you and yours. WWG1WGA

shannynae

More than a hunch…..inspiration!!! You are truly a Patriot.

shannynae

Perverse is the perfect word! They always sell Socialism as the perfect Utopia with streets paved in gold and everyone is equal. They are stating the truth concerning equality…we are all equally miserable except for the elites. Impossible to achieve and the Lord has stated as much. Paraphrasing here….”The poor shall always be among you.” Funny thing though, they are never able to point out examples of flaming success anywhere in the world.

phoenixRising

It’s the poor who buy the idea of socialism…
The very rich know they will and they use them as pawns in their warfare.
Many of those in the ivory towers that preach socialism are ‘poor’ by choice. They make enough to provide basics (for themselves only… they seldom marry and if they do, they don’t have children) while they pursue another degree, another notch on their totem pole… and they totally lack ambition… except to gain tenure, so that they can’t be fired. The very rich use them as pawns also. Throw them a bone every now and again by inviting them to some posh event, make over their intellect.
Of course those of us with ambition are working our butts off to provide for family… our values are opposite, and we’re usually too busy trying to take care of others to be involved in their non-productive chatter about (false) equality, etc.
So, the very rich have it all figured out. (it’s worse than that of course… I’m just tap dancing on foreheads )

pgroup

Your tap dancing should be done with golf shoes, in order to be effective.

shannynae

Thank you so much Wolf, for providing this forum. One of the reasons I stopped posting at Treehouse was the whole Q issue. So much misunderstanding and false statements from people who have no clue. I was very sad to read Sundance’s opinion about Q but I have great respect for his intellect on other subjects and I am still a fan. I was going crazy not being able to discuss Q!
I also agree with your thoughts on why he needed to shut down the whole Q discussion. That made perfect sense.
Thank you a thousand times!

wheatietoo

We simply must go back to In-Person-Voting.
In huge metro areas…increasing the number of days for voting is good for alleviating the crush of long lines.
This widespread ‘mail-in-voting’ is a recipe for vote fraud.
People with health reasons or disabilities could get an ‘Absentee Ballot’ like we have here in OK.
But we require Two Witnesses to sign the Absentee Ballot, or it is not valid.
The ‘two witnesses’ are basically swearing, under penalty of perjury…that they have witnessed the person voting on that Absentee Ballot and that the voter is who they say they are.
National Elections should be under the prevue of the Fed Govt…because they affect the whole country.
I am all for ‘states rights’, but this widespread vote fraud has got to be thwarted…and fool-proof policies put into place.
Or else we really will be a Banana Republic.

wheatietoo

How about video of the voters when they are submitting their Vote to the poll workers?
Digital recording is cheap…and millions of voters, voting, could be stored for later scrutiny, if needed.
Video cameras are not expensive either.
Video-recording-the-voters seems like a simple and cheap thing to do.
And going to video wouldn’t require that people give up the privacy of their individual vote or voting choices.

Deplorable Patriot

Sorry. Cannot agree with public disclosure of who voted for who and what. That’s a camel’s nose under the corner of the tent, IMO.
Voting to me is like going to Confession. What happens and is expressed there is between me and God.
COUNTING the votes on the other hand needs to be televised and video filed.

Linda

Yes, it’s the counting of the votes that is very suspect, as we see in Broward County. There needs to be video cameras everywhere, and there need to be representatives of both parties watching every move they make.

Sylvia Avery

I am not a big fan of making it easy to vote. Elements have been working feverishly as long as I can remember to make it easier to vote through early voting, mail in ballots, etc. We must increase voter participation! Maybe we should make voting a requirement some people say.
Uh, no. I think you should have to put a little effort in. It needs to mean something. Things we work for are always more cherished than things we pick up easily as freebies. Having to put a little effort into it culls out the voters who don’t particularly care, who don’t particularly think about the issues, who just do what they are told or what they think is what Alissa Milano or whoever tells them to.
There does need to be a provision for absentee ballots or you end up disenfranchising the elderly or disabled, and I could even see maybe a 24 or 48 hour voting period but all these weeks of early voting just mean that some people are voting without all the full information typically available to people voting the day of the election. Things change quickly.

wheatietoo

Yeah, I agree Sylvia.
I was thinking maybe a 3-day period of voting, ending at normal poll-closing time on Election Day.
With 24-hour voting.
Just keep the polls open nonstop for the 2 days leading up Election Day, then cut it off at normal time and get those final tallies going.

Deplorable Patriot

In addition to in person voting on paper ballots, I would like to see Election Day be work free, and voters assigned an hour to appear at their precinct. That removes the long line excuse, and the “I have to work” excuse. If we have to change the day of the week to Wednesday to keep Americans from taking long weekends and using that as an excuse, so be it.
This is fixable, but the path to that is going to be a minefield of laziness, work a holics, and fighting those who refuse to be flexible or creative.

NebraskaFilly

Here is my prescription or at least a good start:
1. MUST provide proof of US citizenship in order to register to vote.
2. NO drivers licenses to illegals – PERIOD!
3. If you are on Medicaid, SNAP, Welfare, etc. for yourself (not including the children) for an extended period of time and are an able-bodied adult, you will not be allowed to vote.
3. All in-person voting required – if that requires them to be open for 24 (make it 48, if necessary) hours, so be it but anyone who says they can’t find the time because they have to work is, for the most part, a liar.
4. ID required to vote. As long as DL’s are given to illegals, a DL is NOT sufficient.
5. ALL paper ballots across the board.

This is a first-hand account from an Anon over at Qresearch, who lives there in Paradise, CA…posted a few hours ago:
_________
▶Anonymous 11/13/18 (Tue) 22:38:12e58b4c (2) No.3895292
Message to Q
The Camp Fire was a pre-planned event! I saw activity in the community of Paradise that gave me the sinking feeling that something was going to occur. I even told my daughter the week previous that something was going to happen. Capstone company needs to be completely investigated. I was told they were contracted by PG&E and working in the area for a couple of weeks previous to the event. I saw strange things during the fire being done by this company. Certain houses surrounded by fire trucks as up the street people burned alive in their cars. On top of that the town of Paradise turned the water off which prevented firemen from doing their jobs. the 3rd day Cal Fire called and demanded the water be turned back on. Many years ago we discovered that approx 75% of the hydrants in our town are blank. They are not connected to any water source at all.
I lost everything I own to this Fire. Most of the town did. Many people lost their lives trying to escape. I have lived in this town since 84 and have seen some of the worst fire seasons on record. This was not a regular fire. The wind was NOT blowing like they claim except in the vicinity of the fire itself. There are roads with every house burnt to the ground but garbage cans standing perfectly untouched in the street between the burnt houses. In the weeks before many of the retirement and convalescent homes had evacuation drills and made sure that each person had a bag packed with 3 days worth of clothes and meds which stayed packed and ready after the drill. There is so much more to share, but there is no one here trustworthy to talk to.
My thoughts on why……. All of the California communities burned this year are for the most part Republicans. Between Camp fire and the Carr fire there are now 1000’s of displaced voters. And the gold….. The town of Paradise is literally on a mountain of un-mined gold. People have avoided selling property for generations to pass it down to family and not have the town destroyed. I would bet the last dollar in my pocket that there will be a few contractors come through to purchase as much property as possible at this point. I need help and I am absolutely willing to doxx myself to the fucking world. I drove through fire to save my grandchildren’s lives and I will go to whatever length I have to find the answers to who and why they did this to my community.
__________
It’s very sad to read these first hand accounts.
It is also infuriating to think that ‘someone’ is creating these fires on purpose…for some nefarious purpose…with zero regard for the lives that the fire will claim.
Speculation is all over the place, as to Who is behind the fires:
— The Dems who are in control of CA, doing it to get federal funds?
— Silicon Valley elitists who want to buy up land there?
— Globalist cabal?
— Black Hats/rogue agents in the military using some sort of covert mil-weapons, such as DEW or direct energy weapons?
Whoever is behind it, there seems to have been some prior planning involved…and some coordinated assistance from local and state govt people, even with utility companies.
Too much weirdness, too many things that make you go “Hmmm”, for these fires to be ‘natural’ or the work of random arsonists.

judyw

Thanks. This is the value of Q and the people gathering around Q. Nothing compares to in time on the ground information! IMHO the ones in charge of this have multiple “reasons” but no one need think they put any value at all on human lives. We are viewed as no more than cattle in their sick minds!

NebraskaFilly

This is ALL part-and-parcel of the UN’s Agenda 2030!!!! The worldwide population MUST be reduced! Didn’t you know that??!!??

judyw

WM, perfect timing to bring that forth and just to be sure people understand insurance fraud is not just a criminal act in every state except Oregon and Virginia who have no insurance fraud laws, it is hardly a victim-less crime as the cost must be borne somewhere, and that includes a portion of the premiums each of us pay.
Since I’ve played in this arena the past 35 years I know people have a hard time wrapping their minds around that fact and it needs to be more common knowledge. The Coalition Against Insurance Fraud estimated insurance fraud losses for 2017 to be around $80 billion across all lines.
https://www.insurancefraud.org/statistics.htm

judyw

Yep WM, you nailed it…the fraudsters generally view insurance fraud as very low risk crimes and can easily blend it over to other sectors for even more $. Insurance companies are creating new systems to mitigate the issue by making fraud detection smarter including the use of artificial intelligence.
The real issue I see though as in the WTC is not the detection of fraud but having the fortitude to deny a claim if the cause is found to be the fault of the insured and if the fault is that of a third party as claims that are paid in disasters such as CA fires subrogate and recover damages paid out from those at fault!

wheatietoo

It’s always nice to hear Nigel doing a smackdown on globalists.
He is so polite about it when he does it.
Heheh.

wheatietoo

Uh…the Globalists themselves are the ones who came up with the term ‘globalist’.
That was back in the 90’s when globalism was being sold to us as a ‘good thing’.
The Globalists were proud to call themselves “globalists”, as though they were a part of the ‘cool crowd’…and if you weren’t a globalist too, then you just weren’t one of the cool people.
Maybe someone at CNN will pull little Don Lemon aside and clue him in on that.

MysticRose80

Don “Black Hole” Lemon is a complete tool; however, his ignorance (intentional or unintentional) regarding globalism is, regrettably not unique to him. Wheatietoo is correct in that the globalists were very successful in selling globalism as a great thing for our society. There are people who genuinely believe that globalism is all about unity and world peace. As we know, though, globalism actually has far more sinister implications.
Everyone, regardless of race or religion, should be rejecting globalism.

daughnworks247

“Increase in hate crimes” = I laughed like crazy when the state of MA started advertising a 1-800 number for reporting of hate crimes. Televising their intent so obviously, like a freight train from miles away. Sure enough, within a month, we had the obligatory “media survey” which reported a spike in hate crimes. All the MSM dutifully were breathless in their reporting.
… and just like Wolf said, if we deduct the false claims and the DNC infighting, we’re left wondering if there was a real increase or not.

This is a good idea and there’s other good ideas out there. We can’t institute this stuff nation wide because the dems control the house but what we should demand is that R-‘s in the both houses put out recommendations for best anit- fraud stratagems that states can follow and then follow up on how that is proceeding by showing what progress is being made by states adopting some of these anti fraud ideas. Remember we still own most the state legislators and governorship’s.

wheatietoo

You said that Dems would hate this idea…but Wolfie, what if they Love It?
They might just love the idea of people ‘voluntarily’ making their ballots public.
They could tell all their sheep to click the box and make their vote public…and anyone who didn’t would be declared an ‘opposition voter’, whether they were a Republican or an Indie.
Conservatives and Indies in Blue Areas could end up being targeted.
So, I dunno…I think a lot of people would shy away from the idea of giving up the privacy of their ballot.
It’s really one of the last vestiges of privacy that we have left.

Deplorable Patriot

Actually, given the invasion of privacy from Google, Apple, etc., has prompted many of us to move away from using the tools they offer. I now have a paper calendar, and will not use the online ones. There are apps out there for women to track their fertility. Don’t think so. Also, some apps for exercise track how much you do if you have the phone with you when you do it. With GPS, anyone can find you anywhere, and if the enemy knows how you voted.
Yes, I’m paranoid. Sooner or later, the young people are going to learn how dangerous compromised privacy is.

andrew1979

stay paranoid my friend. i have always been proud of it i feel it is a built in defense mechanism. those that scoff and make fun or say they have nothing to hide i always remember that and knlw i probably cannot trust them with certain info.
we do not even realize the mess we are all in with technology.

Emeraldstar

“stay paranoid my friend”
I agree – but with an important qualification!
“Paranoid” is an IRRATIONAL worry /fear / belief. In point of fact, we have oodles of evidence that our worry and concern is entirely RATIONAL.
When we use the terms that the commies plant – and react DEFENSIVELY to them – we are on the path to defeat. Whenever we succumb to SELF-doubt, internalizing the possibility that those who accuse us have a real point … we’re on the path to defeat. I don’t doubt myself – I doubt THEM!
WE are racist? NO! – THEY are racist! They keep bringing up the subject of race! It is THEY who are preoccupied with race.
WE are Is****phobic? NO! – THEY are Is****philic! It’s just another instance of their 180-degree, upside-down psychological projection.
There are many more examples. I find it best to take what they say, and consider it an ABSOLUTE lie. We must invert it (revert it, convert it, whatever) to find the truth.
When we use their terms, we appease them, knowingly or not. When we use OUR terms, we put them on the defensive.
Language (“PC”) is used as a weapon: we must DISARM them, and ARM ourselves!

andrew1979

i totally agree with your sentiments – however i have taken their paranoia and conspiracy theorist negative connotations and realized those are actually clues that they are positive characteristics of a healthy mind!
to me those characteristics are built into our instinctual core – that is where they manifest themselves. just like “fight or flight”, they are a “sensory warning sign” telling you to pay attention there might be something more than meets the eye/emotion here!
of course like all of our instincts we have to be able to keep them in check and realize at times it is only a level 1 heads up, or a level 3 yellow warning, or a full on red alert. (picture capt kirk: lt uhura – red alert! mr spock status report on event scan. mr scott – warp drive at the ready! )

Deplorable Patriot

Wolfe, please see my comment up thread. Allowing one vote to be public is an open invitation to poor logic from the other side to force all of us to reveal how we voted. It’s a camel’s nose under the corner of the tent.
I simply think this is NOT the best option out there.

wheatietoo

Is this something?
I haven’t watched all of it yet, so I don’t know…but I noticed that Sidney Powell was a panelist in this, so I bookmarked to watch later.
Thought I would share.
[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OletP4NNQZk&w=560&h=315%5D
.
It was posted on Nov 11th and was recorded in Dallas on Nov 10th.
It’s a little over an hour in length.

wheatietoo

Oh, and I should add…Robin Gritz is the lady sitting beside Sidney Powell.
You may remember her from the Gen Flynn background, when Gritz was fired for being a whistleblower in the O-administration, and if I remember correctly…Gen Flynn resigned over that.
They discuss the corruption of the prosecutors in the DOJ.
It is the widespread corruption in the DOJ and our court system, that may be the reason why Military Tribunals will be used…which Q has talked about.

wheatietoo

Could she handle it?
That job is sort of a two-part thing now…there’s the actual work load and then there is the constant attack from the Dems/Enemedia.
Sidney seems kind of tough.
She would have to be very very tough to survive in that job.

daughnworks247

Sidney is my first choice, jumping up and down for her.
Tough as nails and does not suffer fools.

judyw

Wheatietoo, thank for posting this. I purchased the livestream and have only so far listened to Field McConnell’s presentation which was the reason I even knew about it and a bit of another rountable he hosted. It was a 3 day event so it will probably take me 3 months to listen to them! Great speakers determined to make a difference on so many different subjects that affect how we all live and breathe daily. The recordings are now available in the archives if anyone is interested in seeing all the speakers and a bit about the conference or purchasing access. http://operationclassified.com
There was also a premier screening of the documentary by Field McConnell & John B Wells about the disappearance of Malaysia Flight 370 MH 17.
When asked how this debut event was created John B Wells stated, “The idea for the event was mine and I reached out to General Flynn’s family, specifically his brother Joseph, who is the spokesperson and trustee along with their sister Barbara Flynn Redgate of the Mike Flynn Legal Defense Fund and they accepted my offer of assistance. Joe and Barbara specifically set up this fund to help their brother General Flynn and his family.
The day we found out that this American Hero lost his families’ home for defending his son was the day that I decided to do something. Look at the real scoundrels, at the same time, in the news cycle: Brennan and Clapper, Page and Strzok; they put up GoFundMe’s and collect millions and their supporters are vocal, sometimes vicious and they show up. I would argue that Lieutenant General Michael Flynn represents all American Patriots, certainly those on the right.
The power behind the DNC, the ‘progressives’ (in reality, socialists) is that they support each other in a manner that more independently minded conservative Americans do not. General Flynn is a victim of political expedience, political skullduggery and lawfare. He defended his son, like any father would and the left screwed up and destroyed the man’s reputation, his families’ reputations and his finances. ‘Operation Classified’ is designed to raise awareness for this forgotten hero and to raise finances for a Lieutenant General of the United States Army who spent his life defending the freedoms of all Americans, both Left and Right.”
The lineup of world-renowned speakers were carefully selected to tie together the complete story that American Patriots currently receive in fragments:
LA Marzulli speaks about alternative history and archeological proof that what is written is not always the complete truth.
Prolific writer and historian, William Federer speaks about how the richer a country becomes, the more expansive the Executive and military become, the more war-like, the closer we get to dictatorship.
Demetra Antimisiaris discusses Big Pharma and the monetizing of illness.
Ty Bollinger, cancer researcher and writer, also speaks within this realm.
Keynote Speaker, Will Champion speaks candidly about the tens of thousands of unexplained flying phenomena that people are reporting all over the world every day of the year.
Stewart Rhodes, Founder of the Oathkeepers, speaks about the American Citizens’ responsibility to himself or herself, their families and communities to be prepared when disasters strike, like we recently saw with the terrible optics out of California, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas with Hurricane Michael.
And the whole lineup can be accessed at the link above.

Very nice overview.
Thank you.

Yesterday on the Howie Carr Show, Howie had a lengthy segment about an aide of John Bolton’s whom — allegedly — Melania Trump had fired, indirectly.
The original report appeared in the WSJ, then elsewhere.
According to the Washington Examiner, the report is untrue:
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/white-house/boltons-top-aide-wasnt-fired-and-still-works-there-white-house-says
‘Deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel was not fired and was not escorted out of the White House on Tuesday, two White House officials confirmed to the Washington Examiner.’
The controversy developed on the First Lady’s trip to Africa and seating arrangements on the plane, to which Mira Ricardel — a passenger — objected:
‘Ricardel serves as the top national security adviser to John Bolton. Her job was reportedly on the line after she clashed with the first lady’s staff during Melania Trump’s trip to Africa last month over seating assignments on the plane and requests to use National Security Council resources. The first lady’s office also suspected Ricardel was behind some negative stories about Trump and her staff, reports said.’
I don’t know what to think. Possibly file under ‘developing’?

daughnworks247

As the story of the ‘firing’ evolved into last night, we heard that Mira also clashed with Mattis and Chief of Staff Kelly, not just the First Lady.
So, I’m thinking, the person who decided to pick a fight with a guy like Mattis, another Marine General like Kelly, + the First Lady of the USA, is felony stupid, and needs to go.
Fox and Friends reported this morning Mira clashed with ‘several’ cabinet secretaries. “Developing”, is apt.

churchmouse

Thank you very much, daughnworks, for such a concise and far-reaching summary of recent events surrounding MR.
Yes, she does need to GO NOW.
What a story. Can hardly wait until it comes out.
My spidey senses went off when the First Lady complained (I probably said that before). The First Lady never complained about a specific person that we knew about — until now.
If her office issued a statement, this must be pretty darn bad.

Elizabeth Carter

Ricardel is a Member of the Council on Foreign Relations. McMasters is also a Member
“There does exist, and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates, to some extent in the way the radical Right believes the Communist act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups [comparable to the CFR in the USA], has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so. I know of the operation of this network because I…was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records.” [Professor Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, p.950]
“At the end of the war of 1914, it became clear that the organization of this system had to be greatly extended… the tasks was entrusted to Lionel Curtis who established, in England and each dominion, a front organization to the existing local Round Table Group. This front organization called the Royal Institute of International Affairs, had as its nucleus in each area the existing submerged Round Table Group. In New York it was known as the Council on Foreign Relations, and was a front for J. P. Morgan and Company…. In fact, the original plans for the Royal Institute of International Affairs and the Council on Foreign Relations were drawn up at Paris.” [Carroll Quigley, pp.951-952]
“The powers of financial capitalism has another far reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.” [Quigley, pp.324]
The “wise” Insiders who have been guiding the CFR toward global control include familiar names such as David Rockefeller, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, Bill Clinton, Brent Scowcroft…. These men have led and instructed our presidents’ cabinets again and again. They and countless others work silently behind the scenes to accomplish their goal of a socialist/communitarian world government. They may call themselves Republican or Democrats; it doesn’t really matter. They control the financial resources needed to manipulate the economy and accomplish their goals.
Their tyrannical form of “capitalism” destroys the personal incentive, moral guidelines and free enterprise that made America great.
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil…
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes..” Isaiah 5:20-21

There is a very good book with regards to all this that I read back in the 90’s that really opened my eyes to all their nefarious deeds with regards to the New World Order called “None Dare Call It Conspiracy” by Gary Allen. Never forget Clinton speaking after he was elected when he mention Carroll Quigley’s name. That was my original red pill moment in time.

andrew1979

during bush v.1 it was full out of boardroom, cconference, educational planning and put into practice mainstream. probably before but since i was in high school at the time i remember the cultural shift almoat like a small shake, and then a periodic rumble, to a constant quake as it is today.
bush gave me a tingly sensation with tbe 1000 points of light and his UN speech, and subsequent full publically exposed entanglement in the middle east. i wrote papers in school based on these very items.
clinton kept it going and got the tech bubble happening and hillary wrote about how we are all just like a big village or it takes a village but essentially starting a sphere of thought. i wrote a paper on the globalism theme during this stuff too that included more suspicion of the UN and parts of the global warming theme that was just getting so popular and hip. heck i did a paper on examining the role of methane contributing to the greenhouse effect and where it came from and how bad it was or wasn’t (devil’s advocate style so i would not expose my thoughts of course – just the facts) and 25 or so years later i see a story all over the web about how cow flatulence is a large conteibutor of methane – which i had 2 pages on in my paper all those years ago…everyone laughed pretty hard at the visual when my teacher had us read our stories out loud.
i could go on but you all know the details! we have been on the steady march and continue on.

phoenixRising

FLOTUS’ spokesperson gave a statement…
The very fact that she did so, says everything for me.
Her statement has not been walked back… but apparently
Bolton is resisting the firing of his # 2, and the story is being
walked back?
This is statement:
https://twitter.com/MichaelDelauzon/status/1062451485185720320

churchmouse

Yes, my news link had that tweet, which Howie also read on air.
‘Bolton is resisting the firing of his # 2, and the story is being walked back?’ This is what I’m wondering about.
For Melania to say something in apparent no uncertain terms about an administration member, it must have been pretty serious.
Maybe administration officials want Bolton to stay for the meantime — and maybe this woman, too — so they are trying to play everything down?

phoenixRising

Hi churchmouse,
I have only questions myself… guess we’ll have to wait until the dust settles?
Good to see you here 😉

churchmouse

Thank you, phoenixRising — much appreciated. 🙂
Yes, I think we will have to wait until the dust settles on this one, unless someone has another take on the matter.
It’s certainly an interesting scenario.

para59r

Here’s my take. As I said yesterday, MR was the one FLOTUS was to go to if she ran into problems during her highly successful Africa trip. What problems came out and were brought to the attention for MR to get fixed she treated as secondary concern’s and may of actually just brushed off as being a nuisance.
That was the rift.
What we don’t know (dust to settle) is what was on MR’s plate during that time period. I’d imagine a lot since she is a very important person and she likely has many demands on her time however it seems that MR should of recognized FLOTUS’s trip as a priority and had all of her concerns addressed. She is after all supposed to be able to delegate her authority. Ultimately it was her responsibility to support and she failed to provide that support.
Personally I thought the African trip ranks close to Nixon’s trip to China and POTUS’s trip to Singapore as far as optics and good will is concerned. However that insight is hindsight and may of still not been recognized by MR even after FLOTUS returned.

churchmouse

If the First Lady had such strong reactions, MR must have blotted her (own) copybook, that’s for sure.
Whatever MR did will not be forgotten.
Breaking Update: On November 14, UPI reported that a) Sarah Sanders announced that Mira Ricardel has been reassigned but to an unknown position and b) she didn’t actually go to Africa but spread fake stories about the seating arrangements for the trip. Hmm:
https://www.upi.com/amp/Ricardel-reassigned-from-deputy-national-security-post/9641542240175/

para59r

Yes.. lol Saw that, still smokey… 🙂 and concerning b) hope I didn’t seem to imply MR went to Africa. I think Wolf also assumed that is what I said from a separate post same subject. Of course she did not. Quite the contrary. A go to person hasn’t to be in physical proximity to support a mission or oversee a trip.

churchmouse

News reports I read before yours and my exchange — along with Howie Carr’s coverage — implied she was on the plane.

Ackkk re reading what you said.. remember earlier seeing seating arrangements but not fake stories… that sounds more nefarious.

You don’t insult FLOTUS and remain in the White House.

andrew1979

my feeling is they are ramping up attacks on the first lady to make sure their is no support or sympathy for her on the left and to cause tension with the president’s supporters also.
they have been trying for a while to paint her as “something” but i think there is going to be more stuff going on soon. plus with mrs. obama in the public eye there is that compare and contrast they have to control right now.

huskerheart

Because if she was, she would be an Icon of which we have never seen and possibly for a long time ever see again….. tragic if you ask me. Her grace, beauty, kindness and intelligence makes the world a better place. The look of joy and rapture on the kids faces that she meets from all over the world says it all for me. Gratitude that she is our Lions 🦁 lioness!

para59r

Yes, the whole absent on magazines issue. To know her is to love her and that rubs off on Donald and we can’t have that when we are trying to disappear him. No sympathy for the Romanov’s thing before we toss the whole family into a pit. At least that is the MSM’s and Deep States Method of Operation. I would not subscribe it to MR though. Not saying you are, but wouldn’t want anyone else to think so. Different problem altogether (Mis-prioritization and bad comms and maybe no apology for it ((dust still settling)) ).

phoenixRising

She was transferred out of the White House, which says alot. We weren’t told where to…
FLOTUS tried the chain of command, which resulted in POTUS telling COS to “Handle it”
The gridlock apparently was between COS & Bolton, who did not want his # 2 removed.
It was serious enough that FLOTUS broke the gridlock and told MR to leave WH…
W,
I think you are being to kind to MR when you suggest she didn’t mean to diss FLOTUS.- way too kind.
I go by Grisham’s quote of FLOTUS’ statement which is beyond frank:

I have not seen this mentioned and I don’t know if you are all aware of it. RED OCTOBER actually happened on November 7th, 1917. This is important. No President that I know of has every referenced the crimes of the Communists against humanity. President Trump has taken his stand and the MSM is silent on this.
Presidential Message on the National Day for the Victims of Communism
Issued on: November 7, 2018
On the National Day for the Victims of Communism, we honor the memory of the more than 100 million people who have been killed and persecuted by communist totalitarian regimes. We also reaffirm our steadfast support for those who strive for peace, prosperity, and freedom around the world.
Since the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, we have witnessed the effects of the tyrannical communist ideology—anguish, repression, and death. Communism subordinates inherent human rights to the purported well-being of all, resulting in the extermination of religious freedom, private property, free speech, and, far too often, life. These horrors have included Ukrainians deliberately starved in the Holodomor, Russians purged in the Great Terror, Cambodians murdered in the killing fields, and Berliners shot as they tried to escape to freedom. The victims of these and many other atrocities bear silent testimony to the undeniable fact that communism, and the pursuit of it, will forever be destructive to the human spirit and to the prosperity of mankind.
Today, we remember all who have been denied the great blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness under oppressive communist regimes. Together, we mourn the unbearable losses so many have endured under communism, and we renew our pledge to continue advancing the cause of freedom and opportunity for all.

National Day for the Victims of Communism
Issued on: November 7, 2017
Today, the National Day for the Victims of Communism, marks 100 years since the Bolshevik Revolution took place in Russia. The Bolshevik Revolution gave rise to the Soviet Union and its dark decades of oppressive communism, a political philosophy incompatible with liberty, prosperity, and the dignity of human life.
Over the past century, communist totalitarian regimes around the world have killed more than 100 million people and subjected countless more to exploitation, violence, and untold devastation. These movements, under the false pretense of liberation, systematically robbed innocent people of their God-given rights of free worship, freedom of association, and countless other rights we hold sacrosanct. Citizens yearning for freedom were subjugated by the state through the use of coercion, violence, and fear.
Today, we remember those who have died and all who continue to suffer under communism. In their memory and in honor of the indomitable spirit of those who have fought courageously to spread freedom and opportunity around the world, our Nation reaffirms its steadfast resolve to shine the light of liberty for all who yearn for a brighter, freer future.

Does anyone else think it is a really big deal that Damon Nelson died a couple of days ago “following a brief illness”? The 40ish Chief of Staff to the House Intelligence Committee, and a lifelong friend of Devin Nunes, who is read in on all of the information the House of Representatives knows in its role overseeing our intelligence community, dies suddenly just as (we hope) the cabal is going to be exposed and punished?

Aubergine

So, I have been pondering, mulling, and thinking a lot over the past week about the election, and I still haven’t changed my mind. The Red Wave was real, it just wasn’t a Tsunami.
I hoped and prayed for the tsunami. I went to a rally the President held here in Montana, and saw the energy and commitment of the crowd. But I still held doubts about the ability of that energy to overcome the forces of history. And I was right, sort of. Our President DID defy history. He gained Senate seats. And the House lost far fewer than past mid-terms. And all of the retirements of those chicken-shit RINOs who are in fear of exposure are what REALLY lost the House.
This train of thought for me is why I am having such a difficult time over on the CTH. Gloom and doom are not my natural state of being, but logical thought in this case obviates the need for it anyway. President Trump gently warned us over and over that we might lose the House, he just didn’t drop a boulder on us. That would have been self-defeating. But he did say it many times.
We have the Senate, if we can keep it (cheaters!). And I agree with several posters (sorry, I can’t remember who all) who believe that authorities are waiting for the crime to occur (certification of the election results) to arrest the perpetrators. We don’t live in “Minority Report.” The crime has to happen before arrests.
I feel particularly sorry for our friend Flep. All the statistics he reported were factual. And I’m not certain whether cheating accounts for results not following along with the stats. But to attack Flep for reporting the information is just uncalled for. I hope he makes his way over here. I love optimists. Pessimism is just a downer for no good reason, in my opinion.
Thanks for providing the venue for me to express my thoughts, Wolfmoon. When I first showed up over at CTH, the comments section felt like a nice, close family. Now it feels like Christmas at the nasty in-law’s house.

A Fortiori (@AFortiori16)

I feel exactly the same way about CTH. One huge source of optimism during these troubled times is the quality of the people on our side. We have a deep bench of strong, dedicated and smart people on our side. I listen critically and logically to the leaders of the opposition, and its not even close.

MysticRose80

Agreed. The fact that our President was able to gain Senate seats should be celebrated (because IIRC that is usually not the case). Unless has been recent developments, I believe that House losses were minimal compared to previous administrations.
Nope, the all-or-nothing folks see the glass as half-empty and get all bent out of shape if others choose to look on the updside. Pessimism is addictive, I guess.
Yep, I love this venue as it has the old CTH feel that I have been missing for quite some time now. If I want doom and gloom, I can just tune into mainstream news for that.
P.S. For those who think that the libs are celebrating, well, one glance at my the FB pages of many of my lib friends and family tell a different story. Keep in mind that they foolishly believed in a Blue Wave and got gypped. Also, watch out for a certain bubblehead named Cortez-Ocasio. Current behavior from Ms. Cortez-Ocasio indicates that she will be a thorn on Pelosi’s side (the way No Name was to the Senate).

The regulars there always referred to him as “him” – I followed their lead.

Yes, he’s a he. I’ve never known guy named Felice, but somehow I have the opinion that he is of some kind of Latin descent perhaps and so perhaps the name is a cultural thing about which I lack knowledge???

Not surprised. Never liked or trusted Bolton, to be candid (no disrespect intended toward those who like Bolton). Just seemed to hawkish to me. If it boils down to choosing between Bolton and Mattis, Bolton should go.

Elizabeth Carter

Phoenix, I don’t understand. Is Mexico declaring war on us? Why are they escorting these people to enter the US illegally? Why didn’t they bring them to an authorized entrance instead of delivering them to a wall to climb? Why did they bring them at all?

“Fox News Channel announced Wednesday it will support CNN’s lawsuit against the White House over the temporary suspension of White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass” press credential, revealing the company will file an amicus brief in defense of the partisan network.
Fox News issued a statement accusing the White House of “weaponizing” Secret Service passes for reporters:
FOX News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential. We intend to file an amicus brief with the U.S. District Court. Secret Service passes for working White House journalists should never be weaponized. While we don’t condone the growing antagonistic tone by both the President and the press at recent media avails, we do support a free press, access and open exchanges for the American people.”

NebraskaFilly

Ooops…..forgot Lou. Greg Gutfield is NOT my cup of tea – not at all funny, IMO. Same for Waters.

Deplorable Patriot

This is one I would let go. The media needs to stand together, shoulder to shoulder on stuff like this even if Acosta doesn’t have a leg to stand on in the lawsuit. The Obama Administration went after Fox far more blatantly and the others came to their defense. If one outlet is silenced, even if CNN has not been, then any and all of the others can be.
I get the strategy.
I also get that I can turn off Fox because they were most likely created as controlled opposition. Tucker and Hannity are the only reasons I would tune in any more.

NebraskaFilly

If their behavior dictates being silenced, so be it!!!! NO news outlet should be given carte blanche – period! Especially when they ALL lie, lie, lie, slant, slant, slant!!!! And this “if one outlet is silenced….” is a bunch of malarkey, WADR. The OUTLET has NOT been “silenced!” Only the idiot who is trying to make a name for himself! What absolute NONSENSE!!!

The Great Awakening continues. Hopefully more Conservatives will see the real enemies of we the people includes Fox News.

Emeraldstar

WE are the “media”, too.
Freedom of the Press applies to ALL those who publish – it ain’t reserved only for the corporate media cabal.
I couldn’t give a hoot what the so-called “media” purportedly “needs”. That’s THEIR need … not MINE.
This whole vicarious weighing-in on what OTHERS need, or should do, etc., is part of the problem. We – IMO – need to focus on what’s best for US, not THEM.
OK, maybe too many caps. Still, though, I won’t support the abused “rights” of a cabal of six, colluding, subversive, LYING media conglomerates over the rights of WE THE PEOPLE.
I hope Acosta is banned permanently. He’s the foremost Goebbles propagandist.
And Fox is outing themselves, bigly, as just another agit-prop TOOL. Just as evil – if not more so, for their subtlety of subversion and control – as all the other FAKE NEWS.
WE are the news!
Rant off …

Tammy Evers (@EverEleutheros)

Heck yeah!! Thank God for the internet.

phoenixRising

imho of course, MSM gets their daily marching orders from C eye A… Brennan STILL tellin’ them what to do and when to do it. I’m confident Brennan was giving Acosta his questions, statements for interaction with POTUS. So, even Fox has to sign onto the ‘Friend of the Court’ brief… must march in lockstep w/ their enslaved brethren.
Brennan is not only angry w/ POTUS, he is scared of what POTUS may do. I imagine if one has lived their entire live having control over others, including the president of the US (I’m also confident Brennan handled ValJar, just as she handled zero), this president and recent events are more than difficult for a man of his age. And he has to answer to Soros!
As for jimmie boy… he only got a slap on the wrist. He lost his “hard pass” but still maintains access to the White House if he desires by obtaining a ‘daily’ pass – of course he has to do that daily, and this is not about his ‘pass’ – it’s about his continued efforts to oppose POTUS, as instructed.
It’s all about optics, the narrative.

Sylvia Avery

I would never call on Jim Acosta again. Ever. Never ever. Heck, I might even quit calling on CNN except maybe one question a month. But I can be a mean and vindictive person, so there’s that.

A Fortiori (@AFortiori16)

Ever since I read that Murdoch was scaling back his activity and allowing his two far more “globalist” sons to increase their roles in his empire, I have been awaiting the demise of FOX News.

NebraskaFilly

It is coming.

para59r

Levin attacked that straight out of the box today on his radio show (podcast for me). Then went on using over half the show attacking the whole Acosta thing digging deep into the law to do it.

NebraskaFilly

I recorded it but haven’t watched it yet. Attacking CNN, right?

Elizabeth Carter

Sarah Sanders said the other day that there are 50 other CNN approved reporters. If Jim Acosta gets his press pass back, he will be more obnoxious than ever. His pass was suspended, not revoked. He is the one making a war out of this.
Assaulting a female WH intern is not acceptable and yelling at the President all the time is just rude.
They make up the news to suit themselves anyway, so who cares whether they have access or not.

NebraskaFilly

I say just end the WH press conferences – period!

NebraskaFilly

Outf’ingstanding!

Tammy Evers (@EverEleutheros)

Anyone know what time the House will be voting for new speaker?

Sylvia Avery

You’ve probably already heard, but I guess they voted for Kevin McCarthy. And it wasn’t even close. I’m a bit down hearted about that right now.

andrew1979

this is how they get you on everything in these bills. notice the wording, the banning of electronic advertising or display, homemade firearm declarations, etc…

para59r

Doesn’t pass in the senate or gets a veto by POTUS. Danger is if they tuck it into another bill undetected by the public.

To add to the theme of the impatience and “woe is me” atmosphere over at CTH, I peaked in, and this was posted this morning.

The bottom line is Trump gets a A+ on economics and things of that nature but he gets a big fat F on law and order. I think its time to stop all the wishful thinking and realize draining the swamp is not going to happen. I myself have been guilty of this but the Sessions firing and now likely DHS tells me Trump has made some incredibly bad hires and thats on him. Too many of us blindly kept thinking “Trumps got this” well no he obviously doesn’t.
Crazy voter fraud, no wall, criminals walking free, nobody but his buddies have been indicted, on and on and on. I don’t fully blame him, he is not perfect, and by no means is this an easy task. However he is our last chance at any sort of lawful correction in this country and he has had 2 yrs….NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE! Major fail on his part. I’ll gladly eat crow but we have wasted 2 yrs already and from the way this voter fraud is going it looks to me like he only has 2 yrs left.
This is all incredibly frustrating as I really thought Trump would want to go after all the crimes commited just against him and his campaign….but looks like to me 0 chance that happens. 2 years is not that much time and its now or never….I’m not holding my breath
_______
1. We do not know what has not been done, nor what evidence is needed to prosecute some of the crimes and whether or not it existed in usable form.
2. The enemy has been at tearing apart this republic almost since its founding. That is over 240 years. We cannot expect dismantling the system that took so long to put together to happen over night.
3. Trump had to show the swing voters how Democrats and media disrupt America first plans. That is in progress.
This is just sad. Impatience is going to kill the movement. It just is. Fixing the economy was the easy part, low hanging fruit. Smoking out the deep seated elements in government that actively work to undermine the MAGA efforts takes a lot longer.

Sylvia Avery

There has been so much anti Trump stuff in the comments lately. Lots of sober and judicious comments about, “Well he did thus and so and I love that, but……” and then it is off and running into ways in which he is just like all the others.

Sylvia Avery

I posted a while ago about going over to the Thouse to see if I had been banned and I read through part of one of SDs posts and got angry and logged out. It was interesting info about Mueller, but then he couldn’t restrain himself:
“However, the ‘trust the plan’ crew believes Rosenstein and Mueller are working on behalf of President Trump to confront the deep state; and everything that appears to be bad news is really just good news we haven’t discovered yet.
You decide which is more likely…”
This is me throwing my hands up in the air. I’m disgusted by the childishness of it all. He’s got a real anti Q bee in his bonnet and it seems very personal. Whatever. I don’t care what his problem is. I’m over it. He’s a big boy. He needs to grow up and realize that he is a leader in the MAGA movement whether he wants to be or not and accept responsibility. I’m not saying he needs to be Pollyanna, but spreading fake information and despair is not helpful.

wheatietoo

Posting those pictures of people he’d had a spat with…and claiming that was Q…was what really tore it for me.
That was false information, with absolutely No Proof given.
In fact, most of what he has said about Q is false…and demonstrates that he either hasn’t ever read what Q has actually said…or he knows and is being dishonest.
For example, Q has put Rosenstein in brackets [RR] and said ‘Bye [RR]’.
And I don’t recall Q claiming that “Mueller is working on behalf of Pres Trump”.
But there was a time when Sd himself was forwarding that theory.
I guess we’re supposed to forget about that.

Sylvia Avery

I know. I remain bewildered, mystified, and feeling betrayed.
I had a lot of faith in Sd’s integrity and it flew out the window over the misinfo on Q, plus I don’t know what else to call it but the junk yard dog meanness of turning the trolls lose to hate and destroy anyone who thought Q had merit. I can’t help it, I am still reeling from the shock.

He’s human. And yet at you say, he is a leader in that others follow his lead.
This is true of every one of us. We have influence.
Our noble character can inspire others to strive to be more noble as well. And our shadow side is also making an impression. Perhaps giving others “permission” to stray from the character of Christ in certain areas.
There has always been a thread of agitating/doomsaying in his work. It’s not his entire message, but his power to persuade includes ginning up outrage, casting dark shadows, and moving the focus to his selected topics.
I am praying for God’s hand to rest on him. To grant him wisdom, strength and grace to follow in the footsteps of his Heavenly Father.

Sylvia Avery

Beautifully said. I’ll join you in that prayer.

NebraskaFilly

Hm….guess I am now blocked at CTH? Had been refraining from commenting but nastiness on-going just ticked me off so I posted an explanation to lurker2, who was being jumped on. Didn’t post. I also posted a couple of links here that haven’t shown up yet – maybe in the “bin?”

Emeraldstar

I recused myself, in anticipation of being forcibly recused.
I wonder whether I’ll even have a shot at a single post more? Guess what? – I won’t even try …
I would, if I thought it worthwhile. (Sorry, Wolf! nobility isn’t rewarded, at present.)
I’ll wait ’til the “wash cycle” is done (“It’ll all come out in the wash!”).
Jan? Hope so.

i would assume that’s probably safe to assume…

this coming purge must be something gargantuan if the steps you have to go to is find users on another site and preemptively block them! q must be going to do something very very bad or we are about to have one of the great happenings!

Deplorable Patriot

I haven’t tried to comment, but that would be my guess. We’re traitors to the cause, you know.
There’s a roll of tin foil waiting for me to start fashioning a bonnet or two.

Sylvia Avery

Gusty sigh. Are we paranoid when they really ARE out to get us?
But seriously folks…that strikes me as petty. “Oooh….I’ll just go note who has decamped and I’ll show them! I’ll ban their azzes!” That is annoyingly small. Oh well.

A.D. Everard

Spot on, Sylvia. The pettiness is exactly why CTH lost me and undoubtedly others. We are not the enemy for simply wanting to think about and talk about Q. Never mind. There’s much excitement ahead. I can’t wait to see what POTUS will do now that the gloves are coming off. I’ve even got champagne in the fridge. 😀

In a dumb sort of way.

There it is – the capital mistake!

Nah. You’ve been IDENTIFIED! lol
Now, you’re officially a “DEPLORABLE-deplorable” … like all of us here.
No turning back …
But – we don’t have much time here (IMO). Let’s make it COUNT!

True dat. No, I meant a couple of links I posted here. I wasn’t all that surprised when my comment didn’t post at CTH.

If you can attempt to post you are not banned. Either your comment was automatically binned for a key word on a list or your account has been flagged for moderation of posts. You can attempt a plea to Ad Rem to ask for assistance if you want to engage.

andrew1979

what about the story about the georgia dnc doing something suspicious with the state voter system (alleged hack you might call it, probably just probing for vulnerabilities or trying to get some spreadsheet) and that simply died on the vine once the election hit. AND the R gov candidate was former secretary of state and he filed the claim against the georgia DNC. he then resigned his position as SoS of Georgia when he thought he had the race in the bag. my guess that suit gets buried and completely forgotten about.

phoenixRising

GA’s current gov is a Republican… he will be there until (R) Kemp is sworn in.
What’s to prevent the suit moving forward?

andrew1979

maybe i was being too skeptical in my analysis but what i meant was it probably will not move forward – and if it does will be appealed over and over especially considering the filer was also directly a potential plaintiff and will be deemed a conflict of interest or obstruction of the free vote by the 9th circuit court.
THEN it will be memory holed 😉

A.D. Everard

Thank you for this link, Emeraldstar. Excellent news!

excellent post there because those numbers reveal the real devil in all the trade talk details. these people have no leverage at all, and people here are making the president out to be a bad guy over it to protect these countries…mind boggling to say the least.
it would seem that the EU is just basically floating at barely solvent so where is all their money going?

Linda

They’ve regulated themselves to death, just like we were under Obama.

wheatietoo

“it would seem that the EU is just basically floating at barely solvent so where is all their money going?”
______
Their welfare programs are bleeding them dry.
They have let in millions of predators who have come there to get ‘free stuff’…and it is bankrupting the EU countries that have been foolish enough to allow it.
The wealthy elitists are doing okay.
They park their wealth outside of the EU, where the socialist programs that they support cannot touch it.
Hypocrites.
The EU countries do not have the industries, and thus, Jobs, to support the flood of immigrants they have let in.
This will not end well for them.
