Dear MAGA: Open Topic 20181122

This SPECIAL THANKSGIVING  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.

But today we are especially thankful to God, and we remember JFK.

Five hundred forty two days since I first got banned from the Old Tree House!
Not that I’m counting, mind you.
Enjoying it here! Chance to re-meet a lot of old friends.

JasonD

So 2 brags now hey. Been banned longest and most. Trying to hog all the glory? 🙂

SteveInCO

Hey, if I am gonna get the black sheep treatment, I might as well make something of it.

JasonD

Nah, you’re just after them badges of honour!!!
Not sure who issues them, no doubt you are on the list. 🙂

SteveInCO

I tell you what, you can have that superfluous “U” from my badge of honour.
😀

JasonD

So long as it is not preceded by that another letter, thanks ….. I think.

SteveInCO

LOL someone very nearly managed to introduce FU as an acronym on a project I worked on. For some reason the boss wouldn’t approve it. Not sure why.

trumpismine

Abbreviation for FUBAR?

JasonD

🙂

pgroup

I got your black sheep treatment – right here in the shearing shed.
🙂

SteveInCO

You too, Lunar Canis lupus lupus!

JasonD

You’re not trying to insinuate that Wolmoon is Looney AND Lupy x2 (sounds loopy)?! You DO know that those are insults?! Don’t be such a dog!! 🙂 🙂

SteveInCO

Okay, I realize you don’t want him to ban hammer you…but you can STOP trying to get him to ban hammer ME. 🙁
(Of course, :D)

JasonD

Well, all that bragging about being banned from elsewhere has left me with the distinct impression that you LIKE being banned ….
Those badges of honor (thanks for the ‘U’, I’ll keep it, though my spell checker is giving me the old “FU”) are very appealing to you – so just trying to get you some more …

SteveInCO

This is the site where we all banned together….

JasonD

WWG1WGA??? Ah, is THAT what its about? Banned of Brothers?!

Sylvia Avery

The Village of the Banned?

trumpismine

I wish the taste buds would have banned me, ooohhhh….(sounds like Lurch on the Adams Family)

churchmouse

I would be delighted if Howie — and Rumpole2 — joined us!

churchmouse

Yes. We live in unpredictable — or as the Chinese say when they see problems ahead, ‘interesting’ — times.
Agree with your third paragraph. Anyone not on board with Q would not actively choose to come here, especially if they risked being banned at/by The Other.
Their currency is worth more with The Other than here.

JasonD

Now that was a very good year, commemorated on the coin up top. Momentous occasion! 🙂

JasonD

Plus, it appears from little clues dropped, that at least 3 of “us” were borne that year – veritable babes in the woods, so to speak.
Oh how innocent and naive we were, thinking free speech and critical thinking were valued by our brethren. But lo, speak not the truth here – outcast from the Refuge you are …
And so, cast out of the family Tree, they stumbled in the dark woods, alone. What did the future hold – was there any hope. They cast forlorn eyes to the heavens, looking for a beacon. and then behold …
A rising moon, accompanied by that sound of sounds, the call of the wild – the howl of the wolf. Could it be? Yes, the Wolfmoon had come …
And so they set forth, following the course set by that Moon, until at last they found, in a den in the woods …
Their Banned Brothers, Outcast all.
And so began a new journey, unfettered by the Quislings and the Querulous that sought to shackle, following the trail laid by their Quixotic guide.
What a wondrous trail it was, steeped in the past, signs full of mystery and intrigue, leading to the beckoning light of ….
FREEDOM!!!

singularZoe

Jason, that is a wonderful tribute to Wolfmoon and what he has done here and to those who find a branch here.

JasonD

Thanks. I am truly thankful to have reconnected with most of the Treepers that I valued – there are a couple still over there, others banned and who knows where.
I am not a writer, so forgive me for any errors. That just flowed out, so I went with it.

phoenixRising

beautiful Jason… absolutely beautiful…
You ARE a writer… a very good one I might add.

wheatietoo

Remember that time that Q directed us to a clip of Pelosi blathering on about “the Wrap Up Smear”?
Beware of the ‘Wrap Up Smear’.
Know it when you see it.
I think that there is a lot of it being deployed right now.
All with the same purpose…of trying to sabotage what is coming.
[youtube

.
The clip that Q posted was not a Youtube video…it was an mp4 or something, but a different posting platform than Youtube.
This Youtube video appeared shortly after that, showing the same clip.

wheatietoo

Yes.
The nasty ones who have done so much wrong, will make it as nasty as they possibly can.

JasonD

As that famous philosopher savant, Forrest Gump, said (kinda) – “Nasty is as Nasty does”

wheatietoo

Found this over at Qresearch…just something to file away for the upcoming weeks:comment image

Aubergine

How do we find you on those platforms? I just went over and signed up for FreeTalk and Spreely. Already signed up a Gab long ago.

Plain Jane

What exactly is it before I sign in?

wheatietoo

It’s a chatroom, looks like.
I went there…signed up…but didn’t see a way to engage in a discussion.
Site didn’t set off any warnings with my anti-virus system, so seems clean.

Plain Jane

Thanks Wheatietoo.

NebraskaFilly

The statement to check “Auth. to services” is odd, no? Anyone have any idea what that means, exactly? I hesitate to agree to something of which I am completely unaware.

wheatietoo

Yeah, I didn’t know what that meant either…so I didn’t check that box.
It’s kind of a bare bones site.
But if things get bad it might come in handy.

NebraskaFilly

Thanks

wheatietoo

Thanks, and good for you, Wolfie.
I need to reactivate my Gab account…I set one up but haven’t used it in a while.

wheatietoo

Very cool.
That’s…inspirational.

A.D. Everard

Thanks for this, Wheatie. I’ve bookmarked it, but not gone in yet. I’ll bookmark the sites Wolf mentions too.
Does anyone know how long the likely outage will last? Other than this site and Q pages, the only connection we have to what’s going on is through Youtube (Tucker, Hannity, etc.). Anyone know if it will be days, weeks, months…?

churchmouse

If it happens, IMHO, it will be sporadic outages or attacks on most affected sites (likely to be the top in terms of readership).

A.D. Everard

Thanks, Churchmouse.

churchmouse

You’re welcome.

wheatietoo

I have no idea, A.D….sorry.
It might not happen at all, but it’s nice to have some backup sites in case it does.
The Qresearch site at 8chan might not be affected.
It has already been under attack…and they’ve done things to ‘harden’ it.
That’s where Q posts.

A.D. Everard

Yeah, hard to know what will happen. I know they are trying to shut our voices down. Desperate people! I don’t think any outage will be for long, but it made me wonder, especially with the idea that it will all be happening on Dec 5.
Exciting times! 🙂

SteveInCO

A total aside:
That 1964 half dollar was in such demand due to JFK’s recent tragic end, that it was simply impossible to get it to circulate. People would save them when they got them. Then, of course came the end of silver coinage over the next couple of years (they basically continued to make 1964 dated coins well into 1966, until they depleted their stockpile of silver, at the same time other machines were stamping out clad/sandwich 1965 and 1966 coins), which added to its desirability.
Today they’re quite common (because so many were made with that date) but because they contain 90 percent silver, you have to buy them from a coin shop (or be very lucky). You’ll get an uncirculated (or nearly so) coin for not much more than the silver in it is worth.
Half dollars continued to contain some silver (40% instead of 90%) through 1970, and people would save those as well. That pair of circumstances led to the end of circulating half dollars in those parts of the country (the West, mostly) where they still did circulate. For years afterwards, even the post-1970 dates that had no silver in them at all were snapped up by people who thought they still contained silver.
The US mint still makes half dollars but I believe it’s only for collector sets now.

SteveInCO

comment image
And I discovered I was mistaken. You can direct order hundred-dollar bags but they charge a premium:
https://catalog.usmint.gov/coin-programs/kennedy-half-dollars/

SteveInCO

It looks a lot like what the mint gins up on its website, and I suspect (having tried to photograph bright shiny new coins) that it’s really a CGI image. It’s too perfect and there are NO lighting issues with it. The one you posted, you can see some slight scuffing and the color is a little bit funky, meaning either the coin has started to tone OR someone photographed it in the wrong light–basically, its a real photograph of a coin.

Sadie Slays

Cherish your time with your loved ones today, folks. Take it from someone who very recently lost a loved one to an unexpected death. You truly never know when it will happen.

Sadie Slays

Thank you. Have a nice holiday as well.

wheatietoo

Sorry for your loss, Sadie.
Words on a screen are an inadequate way to express warmth for another…but I hope you know that you’re among friends here.
I hope that time will help to ease that raw feeling of losing a loved one.
{{{Hugs}}}

Sadie Slays

I got banned from CTH shortly after it happened, and while a stupid ban is nothing in the grand scheme of things, “losing” one of my favorite websites when I desperately needed the distraction felt like another kick to the crotch. Just one freaking thing after another, right? So I was genuinely grateful when I found this place because at least I was able to “fix” one thing that went wrong this month.
Thank you all for the kind words, support, and community. And thanks again, Wolfmoon, for this place.

SteveInCO

Sorry for your loss.
Well, we (I think I can safely speak for all, just this once) are glad you are here, and I believe you’ll find a nice branch here. You might enjoy this:

wheatietoo

Wear that banning as a Badge of Honor, Sadie.
You’re in good company.
I don’t know yet if I am banned there…I haven’t checked.
Probably am though.
This pretty much expresses my sentiments towards the management over there:comment image

SteveInCO

I don’t recall if you saw my post where I waved at whoever from over there monitors this site with one finger. But yeah, I agree. Not because he banned me, but because he’s banning people who don’t deserve to be banned and keeping people who should have been sling-shotted into the face of the moon.

wheatietoo

Yep, I saw that. Heheh.
I ‘liked’ it…or, at least I think I did, but sometimes my ‘likes’ don’t stick and disappear later.

SteveInCO

I could look….but it’s hundreds down in my notifier by now.

Plain Jane

Wwheatie, often my likes don’t stick either. Never understood it. Thought it was just my lack of “animal magnetism” or something. 🙂

wheatietoo

Heheh…it’s weird, isn’t it.
Just another WP mystery.

thinkthinkthink

When “Likes” don’t stick, I’ve found it is usually on a page I haven’t refreshed in a while. Refreshing the page fixes the problem most of the time.

churchmouse

And beyond this weekend!

singularZoe

Somewhere on cth someone posted a WordPress command for “like” I think. I use windows 7 with a keyboard. Can anyone tell me a “like” command, what keys I use? I cannot remember. I should have practiced it when I saw it–and noted it somewhere. Thanks in advance.

Sylvia Avery

Ugh, Sadie, I have an idea how that feels. It is indeed hard when you are basically reeling emotionally anyway to have some other thing that could have been helpful to you lost also.
I’m glad you are here, glad you found us. And again, I’m so sorry for your loss.

wheatietoo

For you, Syl…”That time that Donald Trump used a shovel to kill a snake.”comment image

Sylvia Avery

I love it!!! Everything he does is magic! And he knows how to use a shovel. THAT’s my President I say proudly.

trumpismine

Said a prayer for you when I saw your post over ‘there’. Providence we meet again on wolfie’s place? I too am fairly new here too looking for some truth. Sorry for your loss and another prayer sent up for you and your family.

Plain Jane

So very sorry for your grief and loss. Holidays are especially difficult. Prayers for you.

Sylvia Avery

Sadie, sudden loss and grief have been my companions for several years now so my heart truly goes out to you. My losses changed me forever. I’ve had to accept I’ll never be the same person I was. But gosh, I’m so grateful God gave me the time that I had with them and let us make the memories I hold so dear.
So yes, just revel in your time together and enjoy every bit of it! Make memories, and then make more memories! God is so good and I’m so grateful all the blessings I have received.

NebraskaFilly

So sorry you are living through that heartache, especially when it is completely out of the blue. I don’t honestly know what I would have done had I not had my friends and compatriots at CTH, BB and WND to help me get through it when my daughter died almost 5 years ago. And that was not entirely unexpected. No doubt our friends who have migrated here will do exactly the same for you. Just reach out! Bless you!

NebraskaFilly

Sadie, I am very sorry for your loss. Hope we can be a caring place where you can get some enjoyment and solace.

She needs an M1 Garand or an M14. Mexico still issues G-3s which use 7.62×51 (almost identical to .308).

I like that so much better than that stupid socialist verse by Emma Lazarus or whatever her name is.
I know I’m awful. But we’re in crisis. We can sort it all out later. Right now, we just need to stop it. STOP IT.

wheatietoo

Yeah…we’ve got enough ‘angry young male Latinos’ already.
We don’t need any more.
We’ve got enough poor people — don’t need more.
We’ve got enough people who don’t speak English — don’t need more of those either.
I’d like to see that socialist Lazarus verse ripped off of the base of the Statue of Liberty!
Just disappear that thing…in the middle of the night.

SteveInCO

Plug the hole in the hull. Then figure out who gets to be a passenger.

Not actually sure whether he actual appearance does not look more evil than these ….

Sylvia Avery

That is so funny. Really excellent!!!! Brennan is evil. (And perhaps a goblin, as well.)

SteveInCO

Brennan is on my top ten “I’ll volunteer to be on his firing squad if you convict him” list.

JasonD

Well, if his face is expressing his inner state – you would just be putting him out of his misery.
We used to do that on the farm for suffering animals. Brennan seems to be suffering and he should be considered an animal …
Logic can generally get you where you need to go …

SteveInCO

you would just be putting him out of his misery.

But I’d so dearly love to see him put out of MY misery.

JasonD

So it is lose-win-win. His suffering gone, you stop suffering AND the world is better off.
Those numbers seem to break the tie, fairly convincingly …

Sylvia Avery

Joe diGenova wrote a fiery article for FOX.com where he showed exactly how Chief Justice John Roberts once again proved his creds in the Shovel Ready Hall of Fame. I’ve linked it below. It is a good read and defends PDJT’s talking about “Obama jugdges” and he also questions why Roberts was silent all through the Obama years, but now he feels he has to stick his neck out? Most peculiar and unwelcome.
But I particularly want to call your attention to the last little bit here right at the end, FTA:
“…The candidates for attacking President Trump are numerous and inoffensive. Perhaps Roberts could have chosen his favorite Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee. At any rate, he chose none of these options. One wonders why.
Why would Roberts insert himself, at this time, in this situation, to attack President Trump? He is a very smart man. This was not an accident or a coincidence.”
This made my Q-dar start to ping. Joe is smart, savvy, and in the confidence of PDJT. Joe obviously knows something. For Roberts to be sent out to take one for the globalist team right here right now? Hmm…. I see Scared People. This is right up there with Trey Gowdy sending a letter to Ivanka about her emails. Once again, timing is everything. He’s almost gone, Ivanka’s emails are no big deal, and he is sent forth to stir the pot NOW? There’s that Q-dar pinging again.
https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/justice-roberts-attack-against-president-trump-was-blatantly-political-and-wrong

wheatietoo

Good for Joe d’G!
Yep, someone is pulling the Dred Justice Roberts’ puppet strings.
That thing about Roberts’ illegal adoptions is not exactly a ‘secret’ anymore…it just hasn’t been broadcast out on the big networks.
I wonder if there is something else that Roberts is being blackmailed over.
Grassley came out and said something even stronger than Joe diGenova did.
He blasted Roberts for remaining silent and turning a blind eye to all of HusseinO’s negative remarks about Judges.
And good for him!
HusseinO criticized Justice Alito in a State-of-the-Union address.
And Roberts didn’t say “boo” about that!

Sylvia Avery

Yes, I saw that tweet of Grassley’s! It was epic! My MIL, God rest her soul, would have been so proud of her Senator!

JasonD

There is a potential positive view here – if the HAMMER is going to drop with indictments – Then you want no speculation about Trump judges or Ozero judges.
This cuts both ways, so not sure what to make of it.
Note. I am NOT defending Roberts. His O-Care decision, plus being appointed by W, ….
And that is precisely the problem. The judiciary is SUPPOSED to be impartial, and EVERYONE knows they are not. The system is so way past what it is supposed to be

SteveInCO

This is NOT GOOD.
We end up once again with a 4-5 court, with Thomas, Alito, Kavanaugh, and Gorsuch on our side…and Roberts liable to join the other side just to spite the President.
Why do I get this feeling like Trump could nominate seven justices and we’d still be looking at 4-5??

Sylvia Avery

I hope not. I just believe there is something wrong with Roberts. I tend to believe that he is compromised, but I don’t know that for sure. I have so much more confidence in PDJT’s selection/vetting process for SCOTUS than anyone before him that I feel hopeful for the future.
Before PDJT, Republicans relied on the good ol’ boy club for SCOTUS referrals and look how that worked out for us. Spit. So we’re doing much better.
But of course, we don’t have a lot of defense against people like SCOTUS justices who are blackmailed. That’s serious. If Roberts had any honor he’d resign.

Plain Jane

There was a peculiar eye contact between O & R when R was swearing in O, that immediately turned my stomach. R had an impish, “cute” grin on his mug. It was like a flirt look. Don’t know if it was because he flubbed the swearing in or what, but I immediately felt it spelled trouble.
DH knew R’s father and was real happy about R’s confirmation so I was also, until that look on R’s face. Wish I knew how to find that video.

Chief Justice Roberts presides over the corrupt FISA Court…
His name is on the list. He best be packing up his office and leaving before Jan 3…

holley100

Whenever I see a picture of Roberts ferret face Frank Burns from M*A*S*H comes to mind.

Deplorable Patriot

A couple of Q points here:
The claim is there is a comfortable five justice majority on the SC now that Kavanaugh is there.
Misinformation is necessary.
We don’t know what we don’t know. Roberts’ words were meant to make the headlines. Mission accomplished. Whose mission we are not privy to, but my guess would be this is one of those manufactured spats meant to keep the mainstream media gossip machine busy and distracted. The can of whoop-a$$ isn’t ready to explode yet.

A.D. Everard

Sylvia Avery

Speaking of my Q-dar pinging, here’s another possible sign of “something” building under the surface. It sounds like the Brits’ are really starting to sweat heavily and reach for the smelling salts because they are so afraid they are going to get exposed as being a foreign government blatantly meddling in the 2016 US election. The link is to yahoo news (sigh, I know) but it seems to be sourced heavily from The Telegraph and I’ve linked that, too, but it looks like it is behind a paywall.
There’s some juicy little quotes like theses:
“…George Papadopoulos, a former Trump campaign adviser, has publicly claimed he was targeted by UK spies and told The Telegraph that he is demanding transparency.”
“GCHQ, Britain’s secret listening post, issued a rare on-record statement last year denying a suggestion quoted by Sean Spicer, then the White House press secretary, that it had helped wiretap Trump Towers. A GCHQ spokesman called the claim “nonsense” and “utterly ridiculous”.”
“Tony Blair, the former prime minister, also had to publicly deny a suggestion he told Jared Kushner, Mr Trump’s son-in-law, that UK intelligence agencies may have been involved in surveillance of the Trump campaign. The claim was made in Michael Wolff’s book Fire and Fury.”
Of course, it is Yahoo News so the tone is relentlessly anti Trump, but some interesting nuggets are in there despite that.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/11/21/exc-mi6-battling-donald-trump-release-classified-russia-probe/

JasonD

PapaD makes noise, forcing defensive press. This all helps to seep into public awareness, albeit in the background. Not sure what it means, but smoke is visible, which usually means …. keep an eye out for the fire.

phoenixRising

Sylvia,
Everything MSM is anti-Trump… it is all C-eye-A controlled.
George has been tweeting every day, several times a day about 5eye participation.
Telegraph is Brits’ military mouthpiece. Brits are involved up to their ears, Australia also.
POTUS is building relationships with other countries… there will be a shift in “Allies” in the next six years. imho

Sylvia Avery

I am sure PDJT knew all about the 5 eye involvement way, way back. It is funny they are running around now worrying about PDJT finding out. Oh PUHLEEZE. He has known forever as frankly so have the rest of us who have paid any attention at all. So now the Brits are all worried about it getting out? Ha, ha.
I also thought it was rich the article was saying if PDJT finds out the Brits were involved it might mean they won’t get a good deal with US on trade. SMH. PDJT will do what is best for America, dear friends in UK. That’s what America First means. Whether you were screwing us over or not.
PR I completely agree with you that our alliances are shifting. We are learning who our “friends” are and who they are not.

Sylvia Avery

Why won’t my stupid turkey breast unthaw? I’m having visions of standing over it with my hair dryer trained on it…. I do hope it doesn’t come to that.

wheatietoo

Have you got it in the sink, in some cold water?
That always works for me.

Sylvia Avery

It is now. It will probably be fine. I went to the hippie store to buy a fresh organic grass fed cage free joyous happy and free turkey breast, but they were sold out so I got a frozen one. For what I paid for it I could have gone to the Grocery Outlet and bought a Butterball turkey raised on hormones and antibiotics and infused with perfectly yummy tasting chemicals and a pop up thermometer that was three times the size. And it would have tasted delicious. But no, I had to try and be all healthy and stuff. Grr…

wheatietoo

That ‘healthy’ stuff will kill us, Syl.
It’s a communist plot.
Shame us into eating stuff that will kill us.
You’ll prolly be okay with having that organic-happy-grass-fed turkey breast…this time.
But just don’t do that again, ‘kay?
We need you.

NebraskaFilly

ROFL – buy direct from the farm – ALWAYS the best way, IMO. But, then, I am surrounded by farmers so…..LOVE my farm-fresh eggs.

JasonD

Didn’t you read up thread – POTUS tweeting about the cold blast – he has all the answers 🙂
THAT is why your turkey won’t thaw …

Part 11: Feature Documentary: 9/11 Alchemy – Facing Reality by Wolf Clan Media

Sylvia Avery

Mark Steyn was filling in for Tucker tonight. I caught part of a segment he did with Kris Kobach, who sadly wasn’t elected Governor of Kansas, and they were talking about the border problem.
I guess Kristin Nielsen has had our folks embedded with the caravan so we’re getting some intel that’s useful. If I heard this part correctly they think there are at least one thousand who are threatening to rush the border. According to Kobach, there is a provision in a bill Congress passed in 1995 or 1996 that would allow for Homeland Security or ICE or Border Patrol to deputize existing law enforcement. He thinks the federal government needs to put out a call now for deputies from all states to report to the border because we’re going to need all hands on deck.

pgroup

NO! We already have a war on cops, thanks to Jugears. We do not need to thin out our street level cop forces because that will tempt the less-than-courageous thugs to act out. We need what DJT just did – empower the military to jump into any fighting with border patrol officers. Right as a four day weekend began. This man’s timing sense is amazing.

Sylvia Avery

I had seen a headline somewhere about this earlier today but didn’t have time to read about it until now.
‘The White House late Tuesday signed a memo allowing troops stationed at the border to engage in some law enforcement roles and use lethal force, if necessary — a move that legal experts have cautioned may run afoul of the Posse Comitatus Act…’
https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-military/2018/11/21/white-house-approves-use-of-force-some-law-enforcement-roles-for-border-troops/

wheatietoo

Yes, I’ve heard about this.
This is good.
It’s not a violation of Posse Comitatus if the troops are defending out border.
Posse Comitatus, I believe, prohibits the Military from engaging in law enforcement within the country…against US citizens.
Defending our borders is certainly within the mission of our Armed Services.
I am hoping they have rounded up as many LRAD and ADS units as we have, and moved them down along the border for our BP and troops to use.
LRAD and ADS are non-lethal systems of crowd control…and to repel an oncoming group of hostiles.
LRAD uses sound waves.
ADS uses microwaves to synthesize the sensation of heat on the skin.

Sylvia Avery

This would be good. I’m not worried about Posse Comitatus in this instance, either. But of course the ACLU or something like that will try to sue/stop it I’m sure.
Along with everything else, it is starting to feel like crunch time in Trump vs. the Courts. This reckless lawsuit/injunction stuff has got to stop.

GA/FL

Force ‘to protect Border Patrol’ – I would rather they were given free reign to ‘repel the mass invasion and any breach of our borders’

andrew1979

no disrespect to the immensely vital times we are living in as i read some posts on this page and remind myself what i am about to paste in will probably be regretted in about 5 minutes, but i have to lighten up a little…
this will sound corny as heck, but here goes:
i had a conversation with someone two nights ago that referenced in one part the movie “heidi”, shirly Temple version. there was a specific visual needed from that film which is how it was brought up in the first place.
tonight i was just doing some work and decided to get a screenshot from the film to send to the individual i was conversing with, so i did some image searches, etc. finally looked up on the video site there, and i start watching it.
Just To Clarify: This has nothing to do with the treatment of child actors of the early days in hollywood. has nothing to do with the real life persons involved. has nothing to do with rumor, speculation, gossip of any form surrounding shirly temple whatsoever at any time in her life. she just happens to to star in these movies and i was exposed to her collection as a kid as “approved” content to ingest from a television. and truth be told i am glad because i really enjoy them – and mostly for what will follow.
now if anyone knows about shirly temple movies there is almost certainly a very well meant hard life lesson to be learned. none of the lessons are learned easily or without, at times, sheer mental agony and intense soul searching. the movies, seem to also generally follow a basic outline:
a beginning intro where we are introduced to the great positive spirit even if she was just orphaned, that smile and determination is there wish a touch of rebellious and rightly so sassy attitude which you learn helps inform our heroine of the intentions of those around her, and the restraint to which she should temper her spunk with well placed ambition.
a middle portion of the movie emerges after the first part concludes and you are pretty much introduced to the working model of who this free spirited, adversity overcoming, red white and blue loving example of what we all should be knowing what we know now yet with the honest appraisal of bull shit and the invincibility of a child who has not been shown yet how dangerous our “lives” can be…opportunity arises in this middle part, optimism grows, good times are had again, i mean, songs are sung and dances are danced and acts of great compassion and understanding are done to help others because this spirit has such a heart and burden for others that it must share it’s wealth and good fortune that it worked so hard to get. playing adversaries off each other, negotiating the deal, sometimes just loving someone so much their outer shell just falls off…
then the inevitable – almost, not all of them are super high drama, but for the purposes of this writing – an intense crescendo. the can include such lead in moments like her lost father walking past an elevator seconds before she comes out and walks the other way, or true allys are taken down or removed moments before spine tingling moments of terror and battle between good and evil. i have even seen an organ grinder and a monkey with peanuts playing a huge role in these movies. but regardless, the happening happens…
and then the coda i guess. the fight has been fought, you almost always feel like the best scenario happened, even with some loss the greater understanding is that the good and unbeatable determination of this spirit, and a positive outlook, and a very keen suspicious understanding of those around you especially those in places of authority can be enlightening in many ways…and they, many times, they live happily ever after.
ok, i know this sounds strange already, but honestly, watch 10 movies and see if this is not played out call me out. i will admit that this was all a hoax to get you to watch shirly temple on someone’s youtbe channel to funnel money to the needy refugee children.
i am not going to go through this scene by scene, but i will describe the characters and the people/institutions i perceive them to be playing. this is really only for fun but since it came up in a conversation i had regarding current events, and then i watched it with those events in mind, and putting the principle of the above in play. so if you totally disagree, that’s fine because you will have watched a classic tale of the human spirit. (and like i said, these were part of my childhood so i have a soft spot)
shirly temple in heidi 1937. look for it on the tube on a place where the title of the link will be something like heidi full movie best movie heidi.
not all 100% fleshed out, and you sometimes have to do a tiny skip hop or even confusion at times like a fake news narrative…
characters:
heidi: the innocent determined spirit that is behind MAGA.
grandfather: the wise old spirit of freedom. he has loved and lost and his light is fading because he sees no hope but to close himself off and forget what he has lost and live cold and muted in isolation.
the village down the hill: are the opiated masses playing along. not all of us are just playing along of course, some are doing their best to get by and some are well to do and basically social castes are shown in the microcosm of a small victorian type town.
clara: the spirit of the american people that is sick. it has been strong before but can’t remember or dare to try to go to far. in it’s heart it wants to do right. it wants to get better. it wants to be the best. it knows that there is danger and is at times very self preserving at the expense of others our a desperation to be free.
Father of Clara: caretaker of the american spirit. he is good natured and when called on and needed he will fight with all he has for you. but he has many responsibilities and he is so busy with his tasks he needs some helpers to make sure his household is in order.
Fraulein: the deep state. enough said.
Andrews: an inside source sympathetic to achieving the goal of MAGA and a true friend to the american spirit as he has been watching over her in lieu of it’s father (the true spirit of the republic) and battling the deep state when he can, and alerting others when he cannot.
the deep state have a plan to keep that american spirit sick. they do not want to lose their cushy life and will destroy and cut whenever they can to the bitter end.
freedom has the light rekindled when MAGA goes to the town…MAGA helps the spirit heal…the deep state fights back…freedom comes to town to embrace and once again defend the MAGA spirit that he knows is pure and true…deep state wants this final battle to end with freedom destroyed and lost at every juncture and it almost succeeds…
when you are comparing current events and MAGA to a movie from 1937 you might just be seeing it in everything 🙂
have a great thursday (thanksgiving or just a day to give thanks, whichever state you find yourself in)

Oh my goodness, I grew up on Shirley Temple on Saturday afternoons in black and white TV. I read Heidi a gazillion times as a young girl. I’m going to have to think about this. Fun post!

Gotta bug out for the day. Mass this morning followed by way too many martinis. Happy Thanksgiving y’all.

SteveInCO

For short, would it be fair to say it’s Mass Martini day?

JasonD

Not sure which crack is lamer – yours or mine, next one down. 🙂

Deplorable Patriot

No. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is not the same as the martinis afterward.

Neon Revolt has a new post up with information about an organization called D5.

JasonD

Not “D Famous Five”? – Haven’t read about them in nearly 50 years … 🙂
Sorry, very weak joke – off to bed with me.

JasonD

Just need to correct something …
Yesterday I speculated that cripto had vanished “over there”.
He’s back today, complaining that all his posts just poofed into the ether …
Methinks he got a short ban and is not aware of it …
He’s on borrowed time – wish we could give him a heads up

SteveInCO

Agreed. He’s running afoul of the troll mob that seems to have free reign over there.
There’s another person I am thinking of who posts both places, and I am wondering why they haven’t been ban hammered yet.

JasonD

About to head to bed, just thought you could do me a favour … 🙂
If your ban gets lifted again, can you just drop a comment to SD to let him know that my (JasonD) Sting Theory (the one he abandoned) is STILL in play, whereas his Leverage Theory is dead in the water, since the leverage was over Rosenstein, who is no longer overseeing Mueller?
And if you could be so kind as to include that pic of Mickey Two Fingers, the one Wheatie posted earlier?
I would be much obliged – I am sure your ban will be lifted again shortly 🙂

SteveInCO

I know you were just kidding but I’ll answer it seriously anyway:
You can always e-mail him. He posts his e-mail on the site.

We may have grumpy feelings about that site that shall not be named but this article is a joy to read. I especially liked the line about the jukebox and locking the door.

Trying to figure out if there’s more to this and meets the eye (I suspect there is):
Trump names hand-picked panel to supervise, investigate intelligence community
by Steven Nelson | November 21, 2018 03:58 PM
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/white-house/trump-names-hand-picked-panel-to-supervise-investigate-intelligence-community
One paragraph further caught my attention:
Aside from the board, another largely dormant but historically influential intelligence review body is being resurrected with recent Trump nominations to the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board, an independent agency that issued public reports on mass-surveillance programs revealed by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.”
PS: Happy Thanksgiving!
I have developed my own tradition over the last couple of years. I bring Trump wine as a gift to my hosts for all social occasions.
My response to any smartass remarks from any guests (there’s always at least one):
“They were all out of Obama Kool-Aid”!!!

Very encouraging!

OK – joke time (LOL – turning 66 myself this next year – sounds like something I would do):
I took my dad to the mall once to get him new shoes (he is 66). We decided to grab a bite at the food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him… the teenager had spiked hair in all different colors — blue, red, green and orange.
My dad kept staring at her. The teenager would keep looking and my dad would be staring every time. When the teenager had had enough, she sarcastically asked, “Whats the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?”
Knowing my dad, I quickly swallowed my food so I wouldn’t choke on his response — I knew he would have a good one.
In classic style he responded without batting an eyelid: “Got stoned once and fucked a parrot. Just wondering if you were my daughter.”

And a shout out to my beloved Huskers (we ARE on our way back – just you watch and see! LOL) (posted the one below some time ago at that “other” place)
After former Florida State head football coach Bobby Bowden dies and enters the pearly gates, God takes him on a tour. He shows Bobby a little 2-bedroom house with a faded FSU banner hanging from the front porch. “This is your house, Coach. Most people don’t get their own house up here,” God says. Bobby looks at the house, then turns around and looks at the house sitting on top of the hill. It’s a huge two story mansion with white marble columns and little patios under all of the windows. Nebraska flags line both sides of the sidewalk and a huge red and white Nebraska banner hangs between the marble columns. “Thanks for the house, God, but let me ask you a question. I get this little 2-bedroom house with a faded FSU banner and Osborne gets a mansion with new Husker banners and flags flying all over the place – why is that?” God looks at him seriously for a moment and says, “Osborne’s not dead. That’s MY house!”

And another one, a joke I hear was told in the Soviet Union, when they were sure no KGB were around:
Leonid Brezhnev arrives in Hell. Satan tells him, “Because you have done so much excellent work on my behalf, I’m going to do you a favor. I’ll show you your predecessors’ punishments, and you can choose the one you’d rather have.”
Brezhnev still can’t quite believe he’s here, and remains moot, but Satan leads him down a passageway.
Several years later, he comes to a chamber, and gestures to Brezhnev triumphantly. They look upon Lenin, eternally being stoned with smoking hot rocks.
Brezhnev mutely shakes his head. They go on.
A decade later, they encounter Stalin, who is bathed in a boiling pool of red fuming nitric acid.
Brezhnev mutely shakes his head. “No?” Satan says. “Come on, it took effort to use nitric instead of sulfuric acid!”
They continue walking. Only six months later, they walk past a room and Brezhnev happens to glance inside and he realizes that Satan made a mistake.
“Stop! It’s here!”
Satan stops, retraces his last step, looks into the room.
Sure enough, Nikita Khrushchev is seen making out with Marilyn Monroe.
“I want that one!”
“Sorry, that punishment is reserved for Marilyn Monroe.”

NebraskaFilly

Who’s Boss?
When the Lord made Man, all the parts of the body argued over who would be Boss. The Brain explained that since he controlled all the parts of the body, he should be Boss. The Legs argued that since they took the Man wherever he wanted to go, they should be Boss. The Stomach countered with the explanation that since he digested all the food, he should be Boss. The Eyes said that without them, Man would be helpless, so they should be Boss. Then the Ass Hole applied for the job. The other parts of the body laughed so hard that the Ass Hole became mad and closed up. After a few days, the Brain went foggy, the Legs got wobbly, the Stomach got ill, the Eyes got crossed and unable to see. They all conceded and made the Ass Hole Boss. This proves you don’t have to be a Brain to be Boss……just an Ass hole.

“The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is emphasizing safety in preparing this year’s Thanksgiving turkey in the wake of a salmonella outbreak this month concerning raw turkey products that sickened 164 people in 35 states.
About 63 people have been hospitalized and one death has been reported in California linked to the salmonella outbreak, according to the CDC.
“The outbreak strain has been identified in samples taken from raw turkey pet food, raw turkey products, and live turkeys,” the CDC reported.
On November 15, Jennie-O Turkey Store Sales in Wisconsin recalled more than 90,000 pounds of raw ground turkey, but the CDC notes that a “single, common supplier of raw turkey products or live turkeys has not been identified that could account for the whole outbreak.”

On a more serious note, I just went to the Fox story with an interview of PDJT, and when I clicked on the “Comments” button … nothing happened. Cannot access.
A couple days ago, I highlighted the problems with the NASDAQ site, and I STILL cannot access the “Edit Symbol List” function. Try it out for yourselves.
In the past day or two, I’ve seen “seeding” about how whatever blackout may occur in the near future, we should all just attribute it to the Sun – NOT a planned blackout, for Globalists purposes – but rather an anomaly (a “coincidence”) of the stars.
The coming blackout is being tested, and seeded, so as to give “plausible deniability” to those who effect the blackout’s cause / institution.
Please be very CAREFUL about the next 5-6 weeks – they will stop at NOTHING to achieve their goal.
Comms may (will) go out. Money accounts may (will) be inaccessible. When one prepares for the worst – and we should already know what they’re capable of – one safeguards against ALL eventualities.
We – IMO – are under attack, and most things we rely on may become compromised, to the extent that they’ll be GONE … for a bit.
They are testing us, to see whether we will be able to withstand their offensive.
“Trillions at stake.”
Better safe than sorry!
GL to all …

Absolutely! Just dawned on me – I just arranged to be off work that day and was trying to work it through in my mind and had NOT thought about cash. I never use cash, always my debit card. Will have to take care of that. I have to wonder if I will even be able to get internet. I have an antenna on my roof with line-of-sight to an antenna at the local grain elevator about 4 blocks away. The provider I pay goes through Century Link internet service so……I may not have that either.

Trump’s New “Remain In Mexico” Policy Will Force Migrants To Wait In Mexico While Awaiting Asylum
… “The new rules will take effect as soon as Friday”
… “The first group of migrants were offered to live and work in Mexico as long as they stayed in the southern states of Chipas and Oaxaca. Most of them declined.” 

https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-11-22/trumps-new-remain-mexico-policy-will-force-migrants-wait-mexico-while-asylum
from comments section:
I’d use the Jackson reply to the courts. “You’ve made your ruling now enforce it!”
“How long will the illegals wait in Mexico? Mexico will not have Sanctuary cities for them. In fact the Mexicans gave the illegals a 2 week Visa to transvers Mexico, when that runs out then the Illegals will have to do hard labour for 2 years then are deported. “Hey Amigo, home is that way south”

That is less than the no. of days since you have been ban-hammered – you can take them on single-handedly …
Steve is now bigger than SD …
I told you you can use logic to get where you want to go … 🙂
(Just let me know if you are getting tired of my style – all in good jest, but it is not to everyone’s liking)

Well, everyone and Steve, since you hold the world record for bandness on CTH, maybe I have the youngest time for bandness, I think I was banned but not sure when and do not know why. Only know it’s a bit of a shock to find out on Thanksgiving–I tried to post on the page on the U.K. gov and intelligence services being worried–tried today twice and cannot find my posts. They were both very innocuous. I don’t dispute Sundance’s right to do this, but it is the first time in my life I’ve been banned from speaking, banned from anything. Well, I Am among friends, I know that.

SteveInCO

Another test. Try liking something. If the like doesn’t take…you’ve probably been deleted.
If so, welcome to the club!
(All kidding aside, I am sure others got canned before I did; I just seem to be the oldest one who’s here.)

singularZoe

I think there is a command one uses to do likes, and I don’t know it.

SteveInCO

Oh…IF you have a wordpress account, there’s a star next to the word like under a comment; click on the star.
Apparently, you can still like the post by the owner of the board, just not comments by others, if you are banned.

Plain Jane

I cannot even like his blue posts. Nor can I reply to them. Banned, banned, banned, I tell you. Gives me more time to hang here. 🙂

SteveInCO

Let me reassure you, you are banned.
But I wasn’t talking about his blue comments, I was talking about the main post, at the top of the page. Above the top of the comments, there’s usually a list of related posts and above that there is a place for other bloggers to like this post. (You have to have a wordpress account to use that one, for sure.)
I am told (I haven’t experimented) that even blocked/banned people can click that.

Plain Jane

In four years of reading, I never noticed that Like feature.
BTW, thanks for the reassurance. ..LOLOL

singularZoe

I have just written to The Last Refuge to ask if my ad blocker is preventing me from posting. It had not been a problem for months, but I wonder if there are more ads now. I have emailed them. I just want to know for sure and why.

Plain Jane

Still doubt [ ] is even there, and if he is, he is no longer all there.

Plain Jane

Welcome to the club.

singularZoe

Thanks, Jane. Glad to be among such worthy folk. Just wish I could think I earned the honor. Oh, well.

Plain Jane

I was so mild mannered, that I know I didn’t deserve the honor either. That’ll teach me. No more Miss nice guy. Hee, hee.

Right, Jane.

I really didn’t think my leaving the old place, not posting there anymore would put such a dent in the numbers…
being the mercurial messenger that I am…
😉

SteveInCO

I think a lot of people have walked away, deciding it’s just not rewarding to be there. It’s not necessarily disgust with the Q policy, but just looking at how the bashers of you-name-it have gone rampant.
Some few have found their way here.
On the other hand, the comments that WERE actually on the thread seemed pretty civil today.
Maybe someone actually banned all the assholes.

JasonD

“They lost some top posters when they went after Q” said Wolfmoon, grinning smugly to himself 🙂

JasonD

LOL – False modesty does not become the Wolf!

JasonD

Show off!!! 🙂
See, I HAVE to criticise …
Checking the limits of the ban policy here 🙂

singularZoe

You all are so amusing. I was just thinking and looking at CTH and I think there are more ads thatn before, and I wonder if some of us with ad blockers can’t post due to those blockers. I can’t turn mine off, because if I do, reading articles many places becomes impossible, so I can’t test my theory. What do you all think?

singularZoe

That’s right, Wolfmoon.

SteveInCO

The more I think about it, the more I am thinking it’s a combination of factors.
The assholes seem to be gone. There were quite a number of names that were missing over there today. Surely some of them would comment today, it’s what they get off on. They (and the indignant responses to them) accounted for hundreds of posts.
People who were invited to leave because of Sessions and/or Q would account for more hundreds of posts.

Plain Jane

You don’t know where the trolls went? They demanded time and a half on a holiday and Soros didn’t want to pay it.

SteveInCO

LOL! Well, let’s see what happens tomorrow.
But, come to think of it, I don’t remember a lot of them the last couple of days. Today’s thread, as I said, was pretty decent; if I didn’t know any better I’d be willing to join the group I saw today.
Maybe the trolls got shitcanned a couple of days ago.

Plain Jane

Maybe.

JasonD

Maybe they are plying their trolling in person – to their families over Thanksgiving?
