Late or not…It has been 571 days since I was exiled from Can’t Tolerate Heterodoxy (CTH)! Plenty of room on the bannedwagon, folks! Hop aboard.

blognificentbee

Hey where did everyone go? Found you!!
Hi Wolf, Wheatie, Sylvia, Towanda and all of the other treepers I have been missing. Actually I haven’t been around much since the midterms due to travel and life.
So what happened, was it a self-imposed exile or a banning? Just curious. Ok to hang out here for a bit?

Not that you’re obsessively keeping track or anything. 😉

SteveInCO

Of course not. 🙂

Emeraldstar

I would say …
SHE’s with US!
The HRC “slogan” was narcissistic, IMO. She put herself as the object. It is WE THE PEOPLE who should be the object (i.e., the goal, the end).
Just sayin’!

Emeraldstar

OK, cool.
I didn’t want to seem nit-picky! But words really DO matter. Especially slogans! (I’ve done a bit of ad copy …)

wheatietoo

I think that “I’m With Her” slogan was actually used to lay down a ‘cover’ for all the cheating they planned to do during the voting.
Yes, does seem narcissistic to put herself as the object.
And also to require her supporters to engage in the proclamation that they are “with her”.
But Hillary’s inner circle of handlers and strategists *knew* how unlikeable she is…and they knew with her health problems and clumsy speaking style, that they would have to limit her appearances.
They knew that she was given to freezing up, having spasms and coughing fits.
They relied on the DNC-controlled media to cover for her.
Which they did.
The fake polls were also done to support the hoax that there were enough people “with her” for her to win.
The DNC *knew* that they were going to have to do massive amounts of vote-fraud to pull off a ‘win’ in 2016.
And that “I’m With Her” slogan was planned to serve as ‘cover’ for it.
This is why the Blue States refused to allow PDJT’s voter-fraud commission to examine their voting rolls last year.
Thank God for our Electoral College system.
Without it, we are doomed.

Emeraldstar

“Thank God for our Electoral College system.”
Without a doubt.
It’s what makes us a RE-public, instead of a democracy (a “public”).
TBH, I think the States should do the same. Right now, Sore-A** is trying to get all the states to batch all their electoral votes into following the majority of votes. Meaning, even if only 50.1% of the total votes are for a D, then – irrespective of how many counties vote R (could be 49 of 50) – the ENTIRE complement of electoral votes for the State would be awarded to the D’s.
It’s a plan to make the CITIES (or even just the ONE city) dominate. And if all the States, by dominance of the population centers of the Cities, are each tallied as mini-Democracies, then the Electoral College system won’t matter.
It’s an attempted end-run around the Constitution.
IIRC, the Sore-A**-funded organization in charge of destroying our Republic, via this method, is called “National Popular Vote”. (I hope I’ve got the name right!)

Emeraldstar
Sylvia Avery

Thanks for the linky.

Emeraldstar

YW!
As evidenced by the follow-on posts, I should have read the “linky” (nice!) beforehand …

Sylvia Avery

I should have paid closer attention, but I heard it and promptly forgot about it. What I believe I heard a couple weeks ago is that some of the states are suing about how the electors are allocated. This is supported by both Republicans and Dims. IIRC, and I may not, it sounded to me like the purpose of the lawsuit was to have the electors allocated by each state proportionately instead of winner take all like most states have.
All I could think was, well, but they can’t do that. If they do that, there’s no need for an Electoral College. We might as well have direct vote and this is some kind of sinister way to gut our Republic.

SteveInCO

A state is entitled to allocate its electors however it pleases. Most simply let their people decide who should get the electors, two have modifications on this theme (explained in my comment below).
As much as we rail against the popular vote, the presidential election is actually the weighted addition of the binary results of fifty six different popular votes. (Yes, I said 56. I’m not having an Obola moment, rather I said it because DC adds one, and the congressional districts of Maine and Nebraska each add one apiece, in addition to those two states’ statewide popular votes determining two EVs from each.)

SteveInCO

TBH, I think the States should do the same. Right now, Sore-A** is trying to get all the states to batch all their electoral votes into following the majority of votes. Meaning, even if only 50.1% of the total votes are for a D, then – irrespective of how many counties vote R (could be 49 of 50) – the ENTIRE complement of electoral votes for the State would be awarded to the D’s.

This paragraph seems a bit confused.
Counties do not, today, matter at all in the way things are counted. Not in any state. A state today typically gives ALL of its electoral votes to the popular vote winner in the state (two exceptions, Nebraska and Maine; I’ll explain those below). This is what you seem to be “accusing” Soros of trying to get states to do.
Thus it is already the case that a state’s EV gets dominated by a really big city; think Denver, Chicago, LA, San Fran, New York City, St. Louis…
Not that Soros, et. al. aren’t up to no good: They’re trying to get states to award their electoral votes to the winner of the nationwide or aggregate electoral vote; which would result in the presidential vote going to the person getting the most popular votes (not even requiring a majority).
[As promised: Maine and Nebraska, instead of awarding all of their EVs to the popular vote winner in the state, award only two of them. Then they give one EV to the popular vote winner in each of their congressional districts. This works because a state gets an EV for each representative, plus one for each senator.
Since Maine has two CDs, it’s possible vote splits are 4-0 and 3-1, it can never be 2-2 because if someone wins the popular vote in both CDs they logically must have won it statewide. Nebraska has three CDs, so its possible splits are 5-0, 4-1, and 3-2 (the last resulting from winning one CD handily and losing the other two barely, so that the margin in the first overwhelms the deficit in the other two put together).
Only once that I recall did this ever work out to not just be “winner take all” for the whole state, and that was this last time when PDJT got one vote from Maine; the 2nd congressional district there had just enough Deplorables to overcome a) voter fraud, b) people who found Trump slightly ickier than YouKnowWho (the power of the Yellow Stream Media is HUGE, and c) actual living liberals-to-leftists.]

Emeraldstar

“This paragraph seems a bit confused.”
Agreed! Sorry ’bout that! – but thanks for pointing it out.
Part of it was the murky parallel I drew between the parts (counties) of each one State (whole), and the parts (States) of the one country (whole).
Another part was my confusion that the awarding of States’ EV’s be based on each State’s popular vote, as it already is (with the exceptions you cite) … rather than the awarding be based on the National popular vote, which is what NPV advocates for.
It was a rather hasty post, on my part – I wasn’t even completely sure of the NAME of the effort!
After my first post, when I searched for the sauce, what I read there wasn’t exactly what I’d believed the NPV campaign to be. I thought each State was being gone after individually … but instead, there is a plan to combine the States into a compact, to be explicitly “as one”.
Inter-state compacts, I think, would fall under the purview of the Federal Gov’t (the FEC at least), so I don’t see how this could be legal …

SteveInCO

That’d be an interesting case, and (alas) I think we’d lose.
One the one side, each state is entitled to dole out its EVs as it sees fit. On the other is this prohibition against compacts without congress’s approval.
But I don’t think we could successfully make the case that this is a compact. If a state rule changes from “winner takes all” to “winner takes all, until such time as a certain number of states follow this rule, after which case we will give it to the national popular vote winner” they haven’t signed any agreement with each other, they’ve simply said they’ll change what they’ll do if enough other states do the same.
There’s already a parallel: Many states say they’ll recognize another state’s permits if that state recognizes theirs. No one has tried to sue claiming this is a compact between states, and the left would surely try it if they thought it would work.

Deplorable Patriot

This is why THIS topic is vitally important and part of the reason we needed a solid majority on the Supreme Court. Inclusion of the citizenship question is being challenged by voters’ right groups.

It’s shocking how many seemingly well-informed people do not understand the vital importance of the electoral college.

andrew1979

you cannot let facts get in the way of their feelings.

SteveInCO

Indeed, in the exact same way that she thought “Nasty woman” was as big an insult as “deplorables,” failing to recognize she had insulted Trump’s supporters while he had insulted her.

Sylvia Avery

So true. She completely missed the point.

Sadie Slays

Let’s not forget that her H logo looked like a plane hitting twin towers. It was a horrible campaign all around, even for a completely horrible candidate.

SteveInCO

Arrow should have pointed down.

Deplorable Patriot

In the age of narcissism, Hillary’s got it in spades.

You said “spade,” which instantly brought two thoughts to my mind: A) she should have been, B) Where’s Sylvia with her favorite piece of hardware?

You boast, “We have entered into a covenant with death,
with the realm of the dead we have made an agreement.
When an overwhelming scourge sweeps by,
it cannot touch us,
for we have made a lie our refuge
and falsehood our hiding place.”

1) Truly an amazing and astonishing chapter in many ways.
2) I mentioned a Christian lecturer I like a lot, Chuck Missler. He is (was) fond of saying, “Jesus is on every page of the Bible. If you don’t understand something in the Bible, think about Jesus.”

andrew1979

i think Missler also had sometimes mentioned how the bible is akin to a holograph – it is multidimensional, representing information and authority on almost every aspect of all things. many times those things are missed if not fleshed out by an astute reader and you have to dig sometimes many layers down to get to the revealing of the mystery…

Tonawanda

The good man died this past May.
He had many wonderful and surprising things to say such as you mention.

singularZoe

Chuck Missler died not too long after his wife, as I seem to remember. Did not know. He was interesting. I enjoyed listening to him, though did not agree on Everything he believed.

Tonawanda

Missler was just plain interesting.

SteveInCO

I find the Bible to be an excellent source of wisdom and authority, especially the Prophets. I have always been struck by Isaiah chapter 19, the prophecy against Egypt, as an example of how our political system, as currently practiced, would be described. When you realize that chapter describes God’s judgement against Egypt it does not take more than a small step to realize that America may be experiencing divine judgment. It is my fervent prayer and hope that it is discipline, not judgment.

thinkthinkthink

If your Father is still disciplining you, it’s a good sign that you haven’t been abandoned. 😉

Sylvia Avery

I just went over to a different tree and found a late post based on this linked article to the Daily Caller. The FBI raided the home of a DOJ whistle blower on the Clinton Foundation and Uranium One.
SDs analysis was depressing. I’ll not repeat it, you know where to find it if you want to read it.
I’m not giving up hope. This is war. They are playing for keeps. Well, I believe PDJT is also. He has put all he has personally and professionally on the line and basically all his family has and is on the line as well. If he loses this war, they will crucify him and his family until they are completely destroyed. So I believe PDJT knows well what is at stake here and is doing his best to win. And I believe he has help.
But it cannot hurt to pray.

I read about that over at the Qresearch board…and that raid was done by the Maryland branch of the FBI.
It is not known whether or not Wray gave the go-ahead for it, or if he even knew about it beforehand.

Sylvia Avery

TY Wolf.

Elizabeth Carter

Sylvia, The whole intent is to get you to give up and believe you can’t win. We have to fight. They are planning to kill us and have made that very clear. We can die fighting or we can just give up.
I spent much of 2015 studying Tolstoy who was the mentor of Gandhi. As a Christian, I found his ideas difficult. Tolstoy deserted his wife and 13 children and travelled the world. He left them money. His whole thing was non-resistance. Do not participate in Government was a big part of it. He died in 1910 and did not live to see the horrible carnage of the Bolshevik revolution in 1917 and the destruction of Russia.
After a lot of soul searching and prayer, I came to the conclusion that not participating in standing up to evil is like having a beautiful home and family given to you and then never doing any child training or home maintenance. Before long all that you were given is destroyed. I believe Christians are supposed to do our part to care for what God has given us and we are to help others. We were given America by men who have given their lives to found it and preserve it. We have allowed it to be taken over by the Communists and now is our opportunity to take it back.
“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
― Edmund Burke
I find it useful to read the 45 Points of the Communist Manifesto from time to time:
http://comunistmanifesto101.blogspot.com/2012/11/45-points-of-communist-manifesto.html
This is not a conspiracy theory. They told us what they were going to do to America and they have done 44 of the 45 points so far.
We the People have tremendous power and we need to pray without ceasing, stand up and speak up before it is too late.

Sylvia Avery

What an awesome post! My spirits flagged briefly, I admit, but thinking about the strong messages PDJT has been tweeting recently as well as Q’s drops, puts a bit of steel in my spine.
We are all in the fight of our lives, I have no doubt. And you are right, I believe, that we need to take care of the things that God has given us, and God gave us liberty here and we cannot let go of that gift.

Tonawanda

Wonderful post, bursting with truth.
I tried to read War and Peace a couple of times a decade for several decades, and failed. It seemed pointless to me.
Then about ten years ago I tried again and finally “got” it. My previous failures were a function of my shallowness. It had been over my head.
Now I see the novel as an ongoing beautiful experience filled with remarkably rendered reflections of life.
But an often overlooked part of the novel are the lengthy “philosophical” passages toward the end, where Tolstoy describes the working of God in history. It is impossible to look at things the same way after reading and thinking about Tolstoy’s perspective.
Tolstoy was a deeply flawed man, as are we all. He was also a gift from God.

herbork

Did you also fall in love with Natasha like I did? To me, one of the most remarkable female characters in all of world literature. Literally fall in love with her.

Tonawanda

Yes, as so many of the male protagonists did.
Interesting how diverse (personality) a group of men fell in love with her, especially when you contrast the women who had previously been their significant others.
But Tolstoy always portrayed Natasha as laughing, playful and light-hearted, until the suffering of the world befell her. Natasha’s “lightness of being” was what the men found appealing. She was “real.”

Elizabeth Carter

Tolstoy wrote many non-fiction books about God. The one I started with was “The Kingdom of God is Within You” . You can get them free online at goodreads.com and other sites. They were very well done and thought provoking. It is even on video. I read most of them in 2015.

Tonawanda

TY for the information!
A very good friend of mine (a Democrat, we do not discuss politics at all) worked with me at the same place for many, many years, a place with a LOT of unappealing office politics.
He suggested I read The Death of Ivan Ilyich by Tolstoy, a short story, and I did.
Toward the beginning the various characters talk about the death of Ivan (IIRC) and everybody does the “what a good man, he will be missed” routine, before getting down to brass tacks to talk about who will be replacing Ivan in his position, and how the opening will affect the employment circumstances of various people.
I told my friend: Yep, written more than a century ago but the exact conversation conversation with the exact language and the exact “characters” happened a number of times at our own office.

Tonawanda

This incident is very much consistent with what I understand Q to be suggesting.
1) Agenda item # 1: get a leader. We got our leader. Trump is Shakespearean, Biblical, Hollywood, and our leader.
2) Agenda item # 2: support our leader. Hope, joy, optimism and confidence are the most effective means. Things are going to get far more dire. No more business as usual. Trump told us that. We must be men and women.
3) Wolf is not whistling Dixie when he broaches the otherwise almost totally unremarked evil machinations of the world’s most effective Communist Nomenklatura, America’s, not to mention “our” 1%, their apparatchicki: “professors,” “journalists,” government workers, 501(c)(3) “charitable” ideological flouncers, etc. The Ilk.
4) One of the great aspects of being an American in our lifetimes is our lack of suffering on account of politics, unprecedented in the history of Mankind. Communists HATE that. They HATE the idea of people simply going on about their lives. They are infected with a malignant and sadistic narcissism. They have seized the gateways of perception as well as governance, and they are trying to make sure we suffer and are destroyed.

Sylvia Avery

Ton, that is a terrific bit of writing. Very clear. And very true. Thanks for posting it.

Tonawanda

TY.

Sylvia Avery

I like your view that our job in this fight is to be optimistic and hopeful. It is important to keep our spirits strong and to help others stay steady, as well.

Tonawanda

We are at war. No sniveling.

Sylvia Avery

No crying in warfighting? Sort of like there’s no crying in baseball…?

Tonawanda

A very Catholic friend of mine from years ago (quoting some Saint whose name I forget) used to talk about “the gift of tears.” Tears are special.
So are stiff upper lips, the lack of which is one factor affecting CTH.

Deplorable Patriot

This is a good explanation of the gift of tears. http://www.ewtn.com/v/experts/showmessage.asp?number=524441

Tonawanda

Yes! TY.

tessa50

While I personally have no faith in Q, I agree completely with the rest of your statement. Very well written and spot on. We have to remain diligent. it’s all we have. I do sometimes comment that nothing will happen to Clinton or any of the rest because it’s hard to stay positive, but also because I really in my brain believe that. Too many have gotten away with so much. I hope this time I am wrong. Comments like yours above help.

Deplorable Patriot

I agree with you. We really have no idea what is going on. And it’s a legit question if a whistleblower with documents actually turned over everything.

Sylvia Avery

I just read Praying Medic’s thread for the Q drops. I didn’t remember HRCs SS code was Evergreen. That said, I’m unconvinced about the tie in between that and the Christmas tree. I do think the President retweeting the “treason” meme was a real shot across the bow. That is significant.

More on the U1 whistleblower raid:
https://dailycaller.com/2018/11/29/fbi-whistleblower-clinton-uranium/
‘“After asking and getting my approval to do so, DOJ IG Michael Horowitz had a member of his staff physically take Mr. Cain’s classified document disclosure to the House and Senate Intelligence committees,” Socarras told TheDCNF.
‘“For the bureau to show up at Mr. Cain’s home suggesting that those same documents are stolen federal property, and then proceed to seize copies of the same documents after being told at the house door that he is a legally protected whistleblower who gave them to Congress, is an outrageous disregard of the law,” he continued.
‘Cain came across the potentially explosive information while working for an FBI contractor, Socarras told TheDCNF.
‘Cain met with a senior member of Horowitz’s office at a church close to the White House to deliver the documents to the IG, according to Socarras.
‘Cain sat in a pew with a hoodie and sun glasses, Socarras said. Cain held a double-sealed envelope containing a flash drive with the documents. The IG official met him and, without saying a word, took the pouch over Cain’s shoulder and left.’

How some of us are falsely influenced by fancy names and high prices. A group of what are known in social media and the fashion trade as ‘influencers’ certainly were:

The article says that Payless reimbursed the influencers for the extra money they spent:
https://edition.cnn.com/2018/11/29/business/payless-fake-store/index.html
‘Payless, a brand known for budget-friendly shoes, opened a fake pop-up store called “Palessi” in a Los Angeles mall and invited influencers to the grand opening. The store was stocked with Payless shoes in disguise …
‘About 80 influencers attended over two nights, according to Payless. They shelled out a total of $3,000. One shopper spent $640 for a pair of boots, which represented an 1,800% markup. Payless, however, returned their money and let them keep the shoes. Payless said the influencers were paid a small stipend to attend.
‘Payless said the social experiment was meant to remind shoppers that Payless’ affordable shoes are fashionable too …
‘A study published in 2008 tested the idea that price affects perceptions of quality. Subjects were given inexpensive wine to drink, but those who were told it was more expensive described it as more flavorful and pleasant to drink.’

wheatietoo

Hah. That’s funny…”Palessi”.
Way to go, Payless.

Deplorable Patriot

I shouldn’t laugh, but that’s hilarious.

churchmouse

It is hilarious! 🙂
I wonder if the influencers found it as amusing.

More on Google’s manipulation of searches for conservative sites:
https://dailycaller.com/2018/11/29/google-censorship-conservative-media?__twitter_impression=true
One engineer, Scott Byer, deemed The Daily Caller and Breitbart to be ‘opinion blogs’, because they take an existing news story and comment on it.
Uh, both sites also have breaking news and exclusives, but let’s not let fact enter into it.
Byer admitted that MSNBC was also guilty of the same things he accused the Daily Caller and Breitbart of, but would overlook the network’s foibles, because he didn’t ‘want a political judgement’:
‘“Too many times, Breitbart is just echoing a demonstrably made up story,” Byer wrote in a reply to his original post. He did not cite any examples.
‘“That happens at MSNBC, too. I don’t want a political judgement. The desire is to break the myth feedback loop, the false equivalency, instead of the current amplification of it,” Byer added.’

Deplorable Patriot

Excuses, excuses.

Michael Cohen’s sentencing is not due to take place until December 12 …
https://edition.cnn.com/2018/11/27/politics/michael-cohen-sentencing/index.html
… but in the press remarks below prior to leaving for Buenos Aires, the President says Cohen has received a heavy sentence:
https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-president-trump-marine-one-departure-27/
‘Q Mr. President, your reaction to Cohen pleading guilty to lying to investigators?
‘THE PRESIDENT: So Michael Cohen has made many statements to the House, as I understand it, and the Senate. He put out a statement talking about a project, which was essentially, I guess, more or less of an option that we were looking at in Moscow. Everybody knew about it. It was written about in newspapers. It was a well-known project. It was during the early part of ’16 and, I guess, even before that. It lasted a short period of time.
‘I didn’t do the project. I decided not to do the project. So I didn’t do it. So we’re not talking about doing a project; we’re talking about not doing a project.
‘Michael Cohen, what he’s doing is — he was convicted, I guess. You’ll have to put it into legal terms. But he was convicted with a fairly long-term sentence on things totally unrelated to the Trump Organization — having to do with mortgages, and having to do with cheating the IRS perhaps. A lot of different things. I don’t know exactly, but he was convicted of various things unrelated to us.
‘He was given a fairly long jail sentence. And he’s a weak person. And by being weak, unlike other people that you watch — he is a weak person. And what he’s trying to do is get a reduced sentence.
‘So he’s lying about a project that everybody knew about. I mean, we were very open with it. We were thinking about building a building. I guess we had — in a form, it was an option. I don’t know what you’d call it. We decided — I decided ultimately not to do it. There would have been nothing wrong if I did do it. If I did do it, there would have been nothing wrong. That was my business.
‘Q Did you tell him to lie?
‘Q When did you decide not to do the project?
‘THE PRESIDENT: So he’s lying, very simply, to get a reduced sentence. Okay? …’

PDJT used the word “sentence” four times there.
Hmmm.

Yes, but never twice in the same sentence. 😀

Comey wants to testify in public, claiming ‘transparency’, but a public hearing does not allow discussion of classified information:

Deplorable Patriot

But if the info is declassified before a public hearing….
I get the feeling this is part of the movie we’re supposed to be watching. It’s obviously more of a soap opera.

churchmouse

It’s better than a boxed set: it’s free and lasts a heck of a lot longer.
‘But if the info is declassified before a public hearing….’ That would be great.

SteveInCO

I can just imagine the info being declassified at the instant Comey takes his oath. Then Congressmen (who will have been briefed beforehand) can bring up no-longer-classified awkward things as they question him, that he thought he could safely ignore since it’s a public hearing.

churchmouse

That would be worth paying to see.

A Fortiori (@AFortiori16)

I think this dispute is actually about the ability to ask questions. In a public hearing, each representative is given a time limit (I think it is five minutes) and the questions alternate between Rs and Ds. This limits the ability of a representative to ask follow up question and also enables the use of a filibuster to avoid continuing lines of inquiry. There are also grandstanding speeches, and interruptions that are used to manipulate news coverage. All of this crap goes away in a closed door session.

churchmouse

An excellent point — greatly appreciated.
Most of us — myself included — never had real need (until the Benghazi hearings, most recently) to grasp what the differences are between a public and a closed hearing.
From this, we can see why Comey is grandstanding for airtime.

tessa50

All true. But I want it all out there. Trump needs to first declassify it all. Then let it be a public hearing. Then let the questions be very direct. Ask yes or no questions. I don’t care about speeches or manipulations. Set it up in advance if needs be. First question, yes or no. Next questioner, ask direct question based on whatever his answer was to the first, and so on.

churchmouse

I rather liked this comment Over There:
Bluto Ruffian says:

Everything that has happened since it became clear that Donald Trump won the Presidency is / was designed to hamstring PDJT from exposing the illegitimacy / corruption of the Obama Administration. The latest muck in the Muller ‘probe’ is Jerome Corsi. Why Corsi? Remember the billboard splash “Where’s The Birth Certificate”? Trump leveraged this to actually get Obama to provide a ‘copy’ of his Hawaiian BC and it was a big TV news event… Well Muller wanted Corsi to say (lie) that he was the vector for the Wikileaks release of the DNC emails that sank HRC and that he notified the Trump campaign about the eminent release. Why would Muller want this narrative? Easy… it would break the vector that Seth Rich was the provider of the DNC dump to Julian Assange. Kim Dot Com was literally jumping up and down and waving his arms (all 386 lbs of him) to get the ‘investigation’ to listen how it went down. Nobody wanted to listen…
BTW – heard anything about the progress of Seth Rich murder investigation? How about the Awan Family / Brothers investigations… Another voice now popping up is retired Gen Stanley McChrystal who dosen’t like how Trump is getting along SOOO WELL with the military… Last guy to write anything about the Gen, Michael Hastings, wound up cooked in his car after hitting a tree at high speed AFTER the entire drive-train was ejected 80 yards BEFORE the tree hit. It was learned that Hastings was going “off the radar” and was going to visit his friend, Tom Clancy (yes, the famous novelist we all love)… Soon after, Clancy died of a sudden heart failure similar to Andrew Breitbart and, no death certificate was ever made available… Another actor that got bashed up, Joseph Arpaio. Best Sheriff ever! Sued into oblivion by the Obama Admin but, pardoned by Trump, lost his bid to continue as Sheriff of Maricopa County, AZ. All these players has / had good evidence that Obama was a fake and that over 80% of the government was complicit in the scam! On the night of her loss, why would HRC say ” If this BASTARD gets elected, WE ALL hang from nooses”. Let that statement sink in.
By winning the presidency, Trump is in the only person that has access to ALL THE FORBIDDEN MATERIEL that Obama (by his FIRST executive order) tried to hide from ever being exposed. This wasn’t supposed to happen. That is why the RABID PANIC of the left (and Flakes in the GOPe) are driving a lance at PDJT.
Over 80% complicit in the SCAM…
Is it possible to run a government on 20% of its capacity? Yeah. Its called downsizing.

German car bosses to meet at White House, possibly on December 4:
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trade-germany-autos-idUSKCN1NY2GC
‘Top executives from German carmakers Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE), BMW (BMWG.DE) and Daimler (DAIGn.DE) are finalizing plans for a White House meeting on trade policy next week, German and U.S. officials said on Thursday …
‘Other sources familiar with the matter said Richard Grenell, the U.S. ambassador to Germany, had set up the meeting, but the exact date was still being negotiated. Top car bosses were also slated to appear at an automotive summit in the northern German city of Wolfsburg, where VW is based, on Tuesday.
‘Christina Higgins, spokeswoman for the U.S. embassy in Berlin, said the Dec. 4 date was suggested by the German automakers but had not been finalised. “It’s merely a suggestion at this point,” she said.
‘The Handelsblatt newspaper, which first reported the meeting would take place Tuesday, said Grenell told carmakers that U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross would attend the meeting.
‘It was not immediately clear if Grenell would take part.’

wheatietoo

I thought the EU had strict ‘rules’ about trade deals…and that all trade deals had to be done through the official EU wankeratti.
Merkel will probably have a hesteration if these German carmaker execs come over here for private meetings about ‘trade’.

Scary. Shows the power of ‘education’ and media propaganda:

From the article:
‘The survey, conducted by polling firm YouGov, reveals that many members of the younger generation (under 38 — Generation Z and millennials) do not identify with patriotism or American exceptionalism.
‘The Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness, which sponsored the survey, highlighted some key findings, including that 46 percent of respondents do not agree that America is the greatest country in the world, half believe the country is sexist (50 percent) and racist (49 percent), and 47 percent say America’s future should be driven by socialism over capitalism.’
Also:
‘- 38% of younger Americans do not agree that “America has a history that we should be proud of”
– One in eight (14%) of millennials agree that “America was never a great country and it never will be”
– 46% of younger Americans agree that “America is more racist than other countries”
– 84% of Americans do not know the specific rights enumerated in the First Amendment
– 19% of millennials believe that the American flag is “a sign of intolerance and hatred”
– 44% of younger Americans believe Barack Obama had a “bigger impact” on America than George Washington’
UGH! (I’m sure it’s the same in Western Europe, too.)

MysticRose80

Yet, more reasons why homeschooling is gaining more appeal.
Even though things were starting to go downhill in the 80s, at least I got to experience a taste of American pride and exceptionalism while i was in school. I feel so sorry for the youth today and do not envy them in the slightest bit.

SteveInCO

It may surprise many here that there is a secular homeschooling movement for this very same reason–they don’t like the creeping leftism any more than the “religious right” does.

churchmouse

So glad you did. That was the last decade it was possible, IMHO.
It’s now terrible not only in the US but also in every Western nation.
The US is really where homeschooling is taking root. It’s suspect — understandably, in some ways — in other Western nations.
I say ‘understandably’, because here in the UK, we have Church of England and Catholic schools, which receive government funding along with ‘state’ (the equivalent of US ‘public’) schools.

andrew1979

the last true patriots i know were my grandparents. we have been trained almost since ww2 to be ashamed of our military excursions – and frankly most of them were questionable if not illegitimate in reason. we aso had one last explosion of “patriotism” which happened in the early 2000’s because of a certain incident. that was in my opinion completely contrived and forced “patriotism” and you were forced to accept and push it or be considered a terrorist supporter – and it left a dirty taste in some people’s mouths…

We are now conditioned to think that the US and UK along with other Western nations are ‘dirty’ because we defended freedom.
What sort of messed up notion is that?

As NYGUY can attest (he better attest!) my wife (born in Minsk) is one of those Melania type Eastern European women whose outward beauty is surpassed only by her inward beauty, with a mental toughness and a spiritual sweetness to match.

More on the U1 whistleblower raid:
https://dailycaller.com/2018/11/29/fbi-whistleblower-clinton-uranium/
‘“After asking and getting my approval to do so, DOJ IG Michael Horowitz had a member of his staff physically take Mr. Cain’s classified document disclosure to the House and Senate Intelligence committees,” Socarras told TheDCNF.
‘“For the bureau to show up at Mr. Cain’s home suggesting that those same documents are stolen federal property, and then proceed to seize copies of the same documents after being told at the house door that he is a legally protected whistleblower who gave them to Congress, is an outrageous disregard of the law,” he continued.
‘Cain came across the potentially explosive information while working for an FBI contractor, Socarras told TheDCNF.
‘Cain met with a senior member of Horowitz’s office at a church close to the White House to deliver the documents to the IG, according to Socarras.
‘Cain sat in a pew with a hoodie and sun glasses, Socarras said. Cain held a double-sealed envelope containing a flash drive with the documents. The IG official met him and, without saying a word, took the pouch over Cain’s shoulder and left.’

Here’s a topic for discussion. I agree with it, especially as many independents who like Trump and vote Republican are not necessarily conservative. Probably not all of us here are, either (I test as a centrist):
https://twitter.com/paulsperry_/status/1068202421594271744

MysticRose80

Hmmm…..in what context was this statement made? If his overall point is that we shouldn’t call ourselves conservative because of the stigmatization of the label, then I’m not sure if I can fully agree. Instead, I think there should be more aggressive efforts to better market conservatism.
On the other hand, if Rush’s point is that Trump’s base is diverse (i.e. not just conservatives), then, yes, I agree with his statement. POTUS’ overall message of patriotism is one that transcends (or, at least, should transcend) all leanings. One doesn’t have to be conservative to be patriotic (as we all know, there are conservatives out there that find more comfort in globalism’s embrace).

SteveInCO

We must always remember that “Trump’s Base” is NOT everyone who voted for him last time. Many voted for him ONLY because they couldn’t stomach Hitlary; he was the lesser of two evils to them. If the election had been held in July instead of November, I’d have been one of them, to be honest.
Many of these people will have become enthusiastic Trump supporters (like the guy in the office next door at work) by now, but many pay too much attention to the YSM and they don’t see what we see.
At work there were two basically right minded people who voted for Hitlary, because they took too much from the YSM.

MysticRose80

Good point regarding people voting for the “lesser of the two evils”.

churchmouse

Although I have not read Rush’s transcript, we should bear the following in mind:
1) Trump’s base is diverse
and, as you rightly say:
2) ‘One doesn’t have to be conservative to be patriotic …’
Look, you’ve said it there — better than Rush! No kidding.
On that note, be happy and have a great weekend! 🙂

CurchMouse, I’m a nationalist, too, and proud to be one, and I do fall into the so-called “conservative” camp.

churchmouse

There you go.
But, consider this: were you always a Republican or voted Republican? Did you always align yourself with conservative causes?
There is no need to answer — not at all. Purely rhetorical questions.
I’m merely asking the questions that would help displace the word ‘conservative’ — assigned by the MSM, IIRC — for something softer and more complimentary.
However, I take the point that, for all of us, this requires input and reflection.
Don’t forget the marketing aspect.
(Disclosure — I have a decade-long background in marketing).

Here’s an interesting one from NYT:
Federal Employees Are Warned Not to Discuss Trump ‘Resistance’ at Work
Speaking in support of or against the “resistance” to President Trump in a federal workplace would probably be illegal, according to an independent government agency.
By Charlie Savage
Nov. 29, 2018
WASHINGTON — At workplaces across the United States, it is routine for Americans’ conversations to turn to President Trump — whether his policies are good, whether he should be impeached, what to think about the “resistance.” Some drink from MAGA mugs; others tape cartoons to their cubicle walls portraying Mr. Trump as a Russian quisling.
But roughly two million people who work for the federal government have now been told that it may be illegal for them to participate in such discussions at work — a pronouncement that legal specialists say breaks new ground, and that some criticized as going too far.
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/29/us/politics/federal-employees-hatch-act-trump-impeachment.html

Deplorable Patriot

The paragraph I SHOULD have copied:
Generally, federal employees have been free to express opinions about policies and legislative activity at work as long as they do not advocate voting for or against particular candidates in partisan elections. But in a guidance document distributed on Wednesday, the independent agency that enforces the Hatch Act, a law that bars federal employees from taking part in partisan political campaigns at work or in an official capacity, warned that making or displaying statements at work about impeaching or resisting Mr. Trump is likely to amount to illegal political activity.

no they don’t–which is bad in and of itself…
I don’t meant to belabor the point–I just don’t get it. why would SD succumb to the leftist tactic of splintering? I mean anyone who supports POTUS should be included–if we allow ourselves to be split apart–isn’t that how we’re conquered?
I respect SD, just like I respect Wolfmoon for starting his own site–but can SD or any of us–really know it all? my guess is no…but to ban posters for a difference of opinion–and that’s all it is–difference of opinion seems petty.

I lived in Alaska for almost 20 years and I have family members still living in the Anchorage/Wasilla area (Matsu Valley)! Earthquakes are a way of life in Alaska so homes, schools, malls, and tall buildings have to be built to code for earthquakes! I am so very thankful for this fact, and I am very happy to see there were no injuries or deaths! The big one that hit Alaska in 1964 was a 9.2 and leveled most everything! Prayers for everyone affected and their families.
(FOX News): A 7.0 magnitude earthquake rocked the state of Alaska on Friday morning, churning up roads and sending office workers running to the streets in scenes locals described as pure “anarchy.”
The U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake was centered about 5 miles north of Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city. There were no reported injuries.
“It was anarchy,” Brandon Slaton, a resident of nearby Kenai, Alaska, told the Associated Press. “There’s no pictures left on the walls, there’s no power, there’s no fish tank left. Everything that’s not tied down is broke.”
The National Weather Service issued a tsunami warning for the Cook Inlet and the Southern Kenai Peninsula shortly after the earthquake but later canceled it. Police in Alaska’s Kodiak island community had told residents to head to higher ground.

The ancient Greeks told of a war, the Gigantomachy, between the Titans (second generation) and the Olympian Gods (third generation and later). At one point Athena picked up a big rock (a BIG rock) and dropped it on the titan Enceladus; he was an immortal so didn’t die, but every time he twitches it’s an earthquake.
To this day they’ll talk of Enceladus twitching (as a figure of speech–they don’t believe it anymore) when there’s a tremor.
Today Enceladus had a big attack of the shakes.
Oh, and that rock is today known as “Sicily.”
