Bad link, fixed (I hope)

SteveInCO

I can’t do that French uvular R that vigorously without it tickling. Or maybe I’m just not doing it right.

wheatietoo

That word, ‘uvular’…has always sounded sort of nasty to me.
I dunno why.
Same with ‘uvula’.

SteveInCO

It’s a bit shorter than “that hangy down thing in the back of the throat” though

wheatietoo

Haaa…true!
And then there is that ‘ululating’ thing.
How do they even do that.
They must train those women from birth to be able to do that.

SteveInCO

Seven letter answer: damfino.

Curry Worsham

Didn’t Linda Lovelace make a movie about that with Robert Redford?

pgroup

Uh, you’re moving into titillating territory. Which out for holes in the trail.

Roberta

LOL. Don’t you mean “thingy?” 🙂

SteveInCO

LOL, and I’m just not going to say anything more.

singularZoe

@Wheatie, you must have read my mind, exactly.

Curry Worsham
JasonD

That was an awesome piece of music. Made me homesick, in that it was quite reminiscent of Afrikaans, which is a very guttural language. Her uvular R is classic Afrikaans sounding.

SteveInCO

Aaah, those Germanic languages (including English), guttural and with lots of different vowel sounds. If anything German itself has relatively few of them, but Dutch seems to have a lot, and Scandinavian has tons of them (Danish/Norwegian/Swedish would be considered different dialects if it didn’t happen there were three different countries involved.)

singularZoe

Wolf, I have an old lp of hers, really like her singing.

Marica

How in the World DO I get sucked into this? However…Me giggling…

Sylvia Avery

Nope. You aren’t hitting Marica territory on the Cheerful Scale, but that’s okay. It was upbeat and funny and entertaining, and thankfully no dip or nachos for me to obsess over in the middle of the night.

Sylvia Avery

Enjoyed the video, too, BTW.

GA/FL

TRUMP-etry is a very nice CALL TO ARMS!!!
(it is a trumpet isn’t it?)

GA/FL

Meant to say, ‘That Trumpetry makes a very nice Call to Arms!…. need more coffee.

SteveInCO

It is indeed.
When this is done in concert, the trumpet is supposed to blast from somewhere offstage. Apparently one time a custodian or security guard “caught” the trumpeter about to start and, not knowing the trumpeter was actually supposed to be there, tried to stop him from disrupting the concert.

GA/FL

Neat story! I can tell you are a music buff/cogniscenti!

singularZoe

Half. Lol.

SteveInCO

I did promise her I’d stop accusing her of being down in the dumps. So here it is.

singularZoe

Lol.

Well this is interesting. The British media is being pressured not to report on the protests or France at all.

I think it might be a little too late to stop that…

Hah.
This is a cool picture:comment image

Curry Worsham

Yes it’s a cool picture but what the hell are they doing? River marching?

wheatietoo

I dunno.
But it’s cool.
The police cannot touch them in the river.

Marica

French Waterboarding?

SteveInCO

Yes it’s a cool picture but what the hell are they doing?

Ready answer from the deep state hacks:
They are in Seine.

Sylvia Avery

I keep looking at this picture. It really is awesome. Not only for what it depicts and what it represents, but graphically as art it really works, too. God bless the French.

ZooNTexas

It should be made into a puzzle if nothing else.

singularZoe

What are they doing in the river? Someone told me UN forces are deployed there. Does anyone know if that is true?

NebraskaFilly

I have seen pics of APCs on the streets with the EU symbol on them but not UN. I commented elsewhere (maybe in reply to Sylvia) that they supposedly brought in 80,000 additional police – where did they come from? My guess is EU.

NebraskaFilly

Wrong terminology – not APCs but quasi-tanks – someone else here no doubt knows the correct term.

churchmouse

Armoured vehicles?

NebraskaFilly

Yeah, but I used armored personnel carriers (APC), which I don’t think was what was shown. They were definitely armored tho.

NebraskaFilly

Yeah, but I used armored personnel carriers (APC), which I don’t think was what was observed. They were definitely armored tho.
“And, now, they have deployed armored vehicles. Under the flag of the European Union. That field of blue with the nest of 12 yellow stars — not to be confused with the yellow stars some were forced to wear during the last effort to unify Europe.”

I guess that justifies rape by “refugees” then.
Whew! I was worried that it might be unjustifiable!
(I shouldn’t have to say this…but /sarc)

Deplorable Patriot

It would behoove the Europeans to have more of their own kind. Several leaders have implored them to do so for the last 50 years. This is one of the consequences. They’re worse than Americans at that and Generations X and Y are notorious for never getting married for one reason or another. (Usually couldn’t find the right person.)

wheatietoo

That’s partly because for two decades, we were told…
“The world is overpopulated!”
“We must have zero population growth!”
Funny how only white people followed this directive and voluntarily stopped having so many children.

Deplorable Patriot

All part of the plan, and it was ignored at the time, but recognized and predicted by Pope Paul VI. The population used to be held in control by occasional disease epidemics, and multiple members of one family going into the clergy and lay religious. Then the latter became unfashionable when socialism got popular, and the former was eradicated with a clean water supply and vaccination.
Human nature was exploited, and teaching generosity in this regard squashed. And so many failed to see it.

SteveInCO

It’s also extremely costly when one figures…at birth one must save up for the kid’s college and perhaps their first car, which is ridiculously expensive IF you think like an upper-middle-class person.
There was a line in Will Durant’s Story of Civilization about the Roman Republic (and Empire) which rings true today: Children were a luxury only the poor could afford.
Back then, a wealthy couple, or one trying to move up in the world, had to pay for expensive tutoring for their (male) children, as well.
The urge to keep up with the Joneses has done as much to kill off child rearing as much as anything else. It will certainly de-incentivize anyone who isn’t absolutely certain they will be a good parent or enjoy it in any way at all, since we no longer live in an age where to be in a relationship (married or not) is to have children.

Deplorable Patriot

Children “being expensive” drives me insane – and I live in an upper-middle class part of the world where everyone is educated beyond high school. There’s ways around all the expenses. My parents made it with more than two kids. Cars were never new or fashionable, and the ones my brothers drove were high mileage POSs from the really cheap used car lots. And at least two got totaled. All but the youngest pretty much paid for our own college. Christmas was Mom’s excuse to replenish our non-school clothes since we were all in private/parochial high schools.
There’s ways around the “too expensive” mantra. But, humans have to have the self discipline to make it happen.

SteveInCO

Yep, but if they do that–they’re not keeping up with the Joneses, are they? Perhaps your parents weren’t well enough off to get caught up in that mindset, but I assure you 95% of people who drive BMWs don’t want their kids to be seen in a POS, or to go to that community college. It’s them I speak of. They’re typically bright people, the ones you would hope would reproduce, dammit (instead of a welfare queen), and they just don’t want the expense that their mindset pushes them into.

Deplorable Patriot

Um, one of my parents is related to the Joneses. And, frankly, we didn’t want to be them.

SteveInCO

Good for them! But that just tells me that you actually do see my point; this psychology is causing a lot of problems; some (like your family) have the wit to recognize it but very many don’t.

Deplorable Patriot

Oh, I know that. My college degree is in communications. All marketing is based on human emotions, and applied psychology. Yes, we see it, but the people around here would never be called outright stupid.

Roberta

Indeed. Look what you have brought to the fore! Allow me to share some thoughts on this.
When did folks think they owed their children their own automobiles? Or even that they owed them the privilege of using the family auto (while paying exhorbitant insurance rates and footing the bill for the fuel and maintenance)? Maybe when (mostly mothers) did not want to be bothered chaufuering their children? When did we start thinking it was our job to entertain our children, instead of having them walk beside us, participating in real life, modeling what we wanted them to grow into (eg, young adults in training, rather than “teenagers”)? Who sowed the seeds of “parents owe their children a university education?” ( I recall being affronted when my parents would not even fill out the invasive forms so that I could receive student aid for my, then, very costly private liberal arts collge. Later, I knew they were right. Good grief, I had my pick of any Jesuit college in the country, if not the world, for free; it was part of my father’s “salary,” and I chose to say no thank you.)
Who began teaching that it was our job to make our children happy (contrast to holy)?

NebraskaFilly

I have to say the Communists/socialists certainly have their act together – pretty much every single aspect of this discussion/topic thread is covered in their handbook! ALL by intent and planned!

SteveInCO

I don’t disagree!

Tonawanda

I believe (IIRC) it was also Durant in describing the decline of Rome who noted an observation of Julius Caesar. Caesar came back to Rome after many years fighting in Gaul and noticed the unprecedented proliferation of pets, and particularly so many women carrying or accompanied by domesticated pets. Caesar observed that the pets were obviously chose a substitution for having children.
Related, Durant cites the centuries long legal tradition of absolute patriarchy, what Durant called cruel in principle but seldom in practice, and beneficial to Rome as the basis for stability, unity and progress.

thinkthinkthink

All races are seeing their fertility rates drop.
The research in this video says the US has had a 40% drop in the birth rate while also seeing a large rise in STDs. The researcher proposes a reason.

PeteC

Seems I was reading an analysis that the world’s 7 billion population could all fit in the state of Oregon, each having a lot size of 50’ X 100’ with room to spare. I usually save sources like this, but can’t locate at the moment! 😟

Deplorable Patriot

Yep.

Linda

Bite your tongue! We don’t want them in Oregon. It’s already way, way too crowded compared to when I was growing up.

Roberta

50 x 100 is quite livable! Owned a 3-story + basement century home in Canada on such a lot. Room for growing veggies, flowers, sandbox that later morphed to a small pond, small patio, shade trees, … no room to hit a birdie or play baseball, but plenty of room for toddler t-ball practice and setting up a tent for boy fun. Also plenty of room to build snow forts during blizzard time. There was the largest park in the city a few steps away…
Prefer the county, the rural, but 50 x 100 …. more than livable.

Curry Worsham

Holy merde!
Is that translation for real?

Plain Jane

How many muzzies did he acquire for his harem – just so he could put his money where his warped mouth is.

Cuppa Covfefe

That intermarriage/miscegenation is the goal of the Coudenhove-Kalergi plan, which, among other things, birthed the concept ot the EU almost a hundred years ago. The CK foundation awarded Merde-kel for her “efforts” back in 2015 or so. Back then, just before the refauxgee deluge, no one was really aware what was up (natch, since “Mutti” is a master at AgitProp, and is unmatched with her propaganda skills)…
The MultiKulti thing is on over here in Germany, in full force. All you have to do is look at the many and various ads out there, even the grocery stores: ALDI, LIDL, Penny, Real, Rewe, Edeka, Marktkauf, Netto… nary a white or non-mixed couple to be found. And somehow the “children” come in mix-em-and-match-em groupings. Another trend is to use models of indeterminate race, usually some intermediate shade of brown, but ANY SHADE BUT WHITE…
People are finally catching on. I hope and pray that enough folks figure out that Western culture is committing self-genocide… And the globalists are the ones behind it, in their Satanic attempt to reverse what GOD did at the Tower of Babel. Next thing, they’ll try to reverse Adam and Eve being thrown ot of the Garden of Eden (remember “got to get back to the Garden” from “Age of Aquarius” ???)…

Tonawanda

Apparently white people have been banned from appearing in any type of advertisement here, also, unless they are portrayed as stupid or expendable.

Sylvia Avery

You know, I have noticed over the last two years a really noticeable increase in mixed race couples and families both in advertising and casting in TV shows. There’s been enough of it that it attracted my attention and I found it startling.
I personally don’t care who does what with whom, it’s just that the amount of it has increased so drastically that it is quite, quite noticeable. I’ve wondered what was up with that because I now always think there is some underlying motive. Now I know it is real, and there is a reason. Short answer: it’s the Commies. Sigh. It always comes back to the Commies.

Tonawanda

The advertising is just another Narrative Venue.
The “Public Service” Announcements which assault us daily, with their often graphic depictions of horror, disfigurement, abject suffering, cruelty, all send a message of Bad America, a Hell Hole filled with wife beaters, animal torturers, cancer spreading behavior, monstrous drunk drivers putting every child in peril every moment.
And they raise money for leftist assault organizations, 501(c)(3)s.
(This is all part of the effort at pay-back against normal, law-abiding Americans, who have had the “privilege” of not committing murder, rape, robbery, burglary, violent assault or fraud, what used to be the chief concerns of the criminal law.)
Fear, demoralization and helplessness are the psychological goals of these PSAs, that and a distrust of fellow Americans.
The fluffiness of so much commercial advertising is intended to hide the relentless underlying message of the images: give up, your situation is hopeless, you have no America anymore.

thinkthinkthink

Toxic states that drain us of our drive to defend against the onslaught:
Hopeless Despair, Terror, Shame

Tonawanda

Exactly. It is pervasive, and so many good folks do not realize what is being done to them.
I made this point repeatedly on another site, but apparently it was not a welcome opinion.

PeteC

All to silently persuade you to be comfortable with it—to be viewed as “normal”!

andrew1979

and the fact that you noticed it is in “their” belief proof of your inherent racism they will say!
it’s a lose lose situation for you. if you mention it, you are racist. if you don’t mention it because you do not want to be labeled as racist you do not raise any awareness. the best we can do is discuss this with people of the same mindset and although we agree, nothing gets done.
it’s fully open war on humanity with this and so many other things.
just the other day i was in a restaurant and there was a tv on and a children’s channel was playing. the sound was muted but just watching the visuals and what was happening in the commercials and the shows themselves was somewhat frightening – and i have a 20 year old child, so i know what it was like the last 20 years of children’s programming and have been watching it degrade to incredible lows over that time.

Sylvia Avery

True. I was uncomfortable even admitting that I had noticed because I felt like people will think I’m a racist because I noticed.

Deplorable Patriot

White Europeans have unintentionally been committing cultural suicide for decades by not reproducing. It was noticed long ago.

Tonawanda

Europeans set off a self-genocide starting in 1914 and continuing uninterrupted until today. Not reproducing might in part be a function of self-loathing.
The Chinese seem not to be affected by the sadistic murder and starvation of tens of millions of Chinese by the Chinese government which exists even today, but Europeans live with the “curse” of a Christian inspired morality which refuses to see other human beings as expendable chattel.

A Fortiori (@AFortiori16)

I grew up in an area with lots of first, second and third generation German immigrants, and I remain stunned with the behaviors of the people who today populate Germany. It seems that not only the flaws in German culture have been eradicated.

Deplorable Patriot

And then define “intermarriage.” In one branch of my family, intermarriage was someone who was not Spanish marrying in thirty years after the people came here. My grandmother was the second or third to marry in. In the 1930s that was a big thing.
And then there were the Irish.

SteveInCO

Ah for the days when producing euro-mutts was a scandal in the US.
I’ve seen plenty of interracial boyfriend-girlfriend pairings, for at least a couple of decades. (I say that because they looked high school age to me; but they could for all I know have been married adults, too.)
Zilch wrong with it, but it should not be forced on people.
As I write this something has occurred to me (and I may just copy-paste-adapt this reply below so it’s a top level comment). In the past no one has dared question people’s choice in partner/spouse. Now, I think it will start happening. You will be a racist UNLESS you intermarry.

Deplorable Patriot

I’ve seen interracial a lot longer than that, like my whole life, but that’s a result of where I grew up. That’s just the way life is here.

JasonD

What’s the inverse of Apartheid?

MysticRose80

“I’ve seen plenty of interracial boyfriend-girlfriend pairings, for at least a couple of decades. (I say that because they looked high school age to me; but they could for all I know have been married adults, too.)
Zilch wrong with it, but it should not be forced on people.”
100% agreed with the last part. Nothing wrong with it. Have family members (including a parent) who are products of them. Making it an agenda, however, is wrong.

SteveInCO

Cool! It was surprising (but not displeasing) to me because it was rare at my high school.

Deplorable Patriot

Dunno, but NOT INTERESTED if that sort of thing ever comes to America.

A Fortiori (@AFortiori16)

When I have this type of reaction — as I did when the Apple exec expressed the view it would be a sin not to engage in censorship — I find it helpful to think of the various forms of Marxism as a religion. They have their ecclesiastical laws, high priests and rituals; they denigrate adherents of other religions, punish apostates harshly, and of course, exalt their particular beliefs with righteousness and pride.

singularZoe

Disgusting e weasel. What rock did that commie crawl out from under?

Probably sounds WAY out of left field (certainly not heart-throb territory) but that description reminds me of Johnny Carson. Some people can convey more than most with just a raised eyebrow. I get exactly what you are saying.

RE: Photo of Melania in today’s open topic header.
I’ve been thinking lately that Melania was also born for the storm, along with her very stable genius husband. History repeats:

I would also add that underneath the outward beauty and grace of Melania is a sinewy toughness. And a beautiful mind to boot!

Wolf, the Planefag Anons were following that curious display of all those military planes in the air at once, last night.
There were a total of 28 planes in the air.
17 had the designation ‘Outlaw’.
Others had ‘Jesse’ and ‘Posse’.

Here is a post about it, listing all the progressive posting on it:
https://8ch.net/qresearch/res/4223465.html#4224202
Anons were saying that the “Scope and Size were the Biggest in History”.
Note: if you click on that list of posts, you will see a list of 7-digit numbers.
Those are post numbers.
That’s how 8chan ID’s their posts.
You can ‘preview’ each one to see what it’s about, by putting your cursor over it…then click on it to see the full-size post.

wheatietoo

***Note – for those who don’t know:
When the Anons use the word ‘fag’ it’s more like a term-of-endearment or something.
I think it may be a way of trolling the Normies who may be lurking and reading.
The term ‘faggot’ did not always refer to gays.
It also refers to a ‘bundle of sticks’.
In Classical times, a bundle of sticks was called a fasces…and became a symbol for “In Unity, Strength”, in the time of the ancient Greek City States.
comment image
Which is why our founders used the ‘fasces’ in our early imagery.comment image
.comment image
.
.
Then the Fascists coopted the fasces and used it to justify their policy of ‘forced unity’.
Which is why ‘fascism’ became synonymous with the “suppression of any opposition or opposing view”.

GA/FL

A ‘fag’ was also the name for a cigarette in the recent past.

wheatietoo

Yes…and the first pre-rolled cigarettes were sold in little bundles.
Which was back when a bundle of sticks to be burned, was called a ‘faggot’.
So a single cigarette was called a ‘fag’.

SteveInCO

Recent enough, and it may still be current slang in parts of the UK. I was on a board once where one very outspoken woman would talk about stepping out and having a fag, and I always wanted to ask her to prove she had such good looks she could make them go straight.

GA/FL

NIce dime.
Depending on the date and mint mark, a “Mercury” dime with full split bands can cost THOUSANDS of dollars in uncirculated condition, because that year, at that mint, they didn’t take any care to completely impress the design on the dimes. On the other hand, for other years/mints FSB can be quite common. Because it can make a huge difference in the value of the coin, the grading services will denote whether a Mercury dime (or even a Roosevelt dime, which has bands on the torch) has Full Split Bands.

NebraskaFilly

Oh, wow! Thank you so much for that bit of history. I knew the basics – that faggot meant a bunch of sticks – but nowhere near that detail.

wheatietoo

You’re very welcome, Filly.
Bundle of sticks…symbol of Unity.

Marica

Super Interesting!!!! Love this wheetie!! Are you a History teacher? Or an encylcopedia writer? Or simply an amazing researcher? So glad you post here!!!

wheatietoo

I had a History professor who was a really inspiring guy.
He would jump up on his desk wearing a Viking helmet with horns.
Or he would show up wearing a toga, when talking about ancient Rome.
By using props, he kicked the dust off of history for us.
One day he brought in a bundle of sticks…a fasces…to talk about the use of that symbol, from the ancient Greek City-States to present.
It really stuck with me.
😀

Deplorable Patriot

My parents kicked the dust off for us by taking us to many of the places where history happened.

Unless you call someone a flaming bassoon, which is a musician insult (just kidding)…
Q: What’s the difference between a bassoon and an oboe?
A: A Bassoon burns longer…

A: They never strike the same place twice…
Q: How do you get a violist to play tremolo?
A: Mark the passage “SOLO” 🙂

Deplorable Patriot

I saw commentary on VOAT about this from old military guys. They said practice and drills are not uncommon in that part of the country, but that many planes in the air all at once was.

wheatietoo

And…in the middle of the night…on one of the darkest days of the lunar cycle.

SteveInCO

The thin crescent of the moon doesn’t even come up at all until late in the O-dark-thirties at that time of the month, so zero moonlight. (You can get zero moonlight even with the moon at a quarter phase and quite bright, for half the night; you just have to time it properly.)

SteveInCO

I at first thought all of this might have something to do with reinforcing that un-fenced/un-walled part of the Arizona/Sonora border that POTUS tweeted about the other night, but from what little I’ve seen here, that’s not where these aircraft were going.

JasonD

I saw it being reported somewhere that this was the largest military exercise of its kind in preparation for repelling a border incursion – not sue if it was fake news. I think it was on zerohedge

SteveInCO

An exercise to prep is good too and I ain’t complaining!
Next step is to actually move troops, vehicles, all the stuff we need to fight a modern war, to wherever it is.

wheatietoo

They also ‘tested’ out the ability to make the whole mil-tracking system go dark.
Which it did.
The whole map of the US went down for a while.
No military planes showed up on radar-tracking, at all.
When it resumed…some of the aircraft showed back up.
But some didn’t.

Emeraldstar

I also read that the planes used an airstrip in NV that hadn’t been used for decades – yet, it was all lit up for them to land.
I’ll go back now to the 8-chans to get the sauce …

Emeraldstar

Hope this shows up.
Don’t know if “png” photos work, like “jpg” photos do … (I guess I’ll find out!):comment image

wheatietoo

These two maps I put up are just a fraction of the ones that the Planefag Anons posted.
Did check those out?
You’ll find them at the link I posted.
IIRC, it looked like a contingent of planes broke off and went down along the border area…may have even landed.

SteveInCO

No, I didn’t.
That being the case, it was surprising not to see it highlighted in the examples.

If I had posted all the examples it would’ve filled up the page.

No doubt.

I also really like the yellow vests with Q. It kind of astounds me that Q would be gaining a foothold in Europe like that. I’m surprised and delighted.
And really, I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. They have been had the boot on their neck for some time now. I’ve always believed our 2016 election was about more than the future of our country, so it only makes sense that others across the world are catching a sniff of freedom in the air and responding to it. Can you hear the people sing?

wheatietoo

There are Q-peeps literally all over the world.
There are so many in Germany, that the Qresearch board has a “Qresearch Germany” thread where they can sprechen sie Deutsch to each other.
I’ve seen pics posted on the Qresearch board, from the Q-peeps in other countries, where they saw some graffiti with a Q…or a sticker on a car…or some of them will hold up a Q-sign in front of a landmark that is recognizable.
So the Q-haters really have no idea what they are hating on.
Well, on second thought…the Dems don’t like the message of Q, since it means a lot of them will finally be made to answer for their crimes.
But the Q-haters on our side…they’re acting like NPC’s.
Someone has told them that “Q is garbage” and so they nod and act like they ‘know’ what Q is about.
It’s really disappointing.

Sylvia Avery

I had NO idea Q was so international, Wheatie. That is really interesting, and inspiring. Our side’s Q-haters are really missing out, at least that’s how it seems to me. “Sad.”

wheatietoo

Yes, and most of them are just going by what ‘others’ have said about Q…without checking it out for themselves.
So they are acting like the leftist NPC’s.

Cuppa Covfefe

I liked the pic of Berlin, where they had four people with Q signs.
That was saying two things (at least) to the globalists: 1) Q and 2) 4 Q (count ’em 🙂 )…

wheatietoo

Yes! I love both of those pics. Very cool.

I am finally able to show the “muh we are doomed” crowd why we aren’t and won’t be.
What Governor Ron DeSantis is about to accomplish in Florida PDJT is going to be able to accomplish at the Federal Level (Circuit, District, Court of International Trade).
This article ABSOLUTELY makes my point! Look what will happen in Florida. The State Supreme Court will have a majority of Republican Justices for the first time in 20 years. The twenty years prior the majority of Justices were Democrat Appointed and Liberal Leaning.
Our President will be able to do the same at the Federal Level and the consequences will be for DECADES to come!

From the article linked above:
One of the new governor’s early moves will be to replace justices Barbara Pariente, Fred Lewis and Peggy Quince, whose terms end on inauguration day, Jan. 8.
The three justices, who reached mandatory retirement at age 70, frequently formed a liberal-leaning bloc on the seven-member court. And they are the last justices named by a Democratic governor, the late Lawton Chiles.
By narrow margins, the state Supreme Court often antagonized Florida Republican governors and the GOP-dominated Legislature, which have commanded state government the past 20 years.
The court turned back Republican attempts to ask voters to disconnect from Obamacare, denied a 24-hour waiting period on abortions, killed former Gov. Jeb Bush’s first-in-the-nation statewide school voucher program as unconstitutional and stopped him from blocking Terri Schiavo’s right to die.
Court majorities powered by the three departing justices also stymied business-backed drives to reduce product liability and workers’ compensation and also defied the Legislature on redistricting, with rulings that found state Senate and congressional districts were drawn to help re-elect incumbents and keep Republicans in power.
This will all be done before the end of his first term since the Democrats have the House and the Senate will have nothing to do except process Judges 😉.

That’s really wonderful news! I hope he is able to clean up Florida’s election and voter fraud, too.

NebraskaFilly

And bring to an end that insane Promise Program!

Gil

The sooner the better. Get Flake gone and hopefully romney wont be a hindrance.

wheatietoo

Thanks, Fle!
I just love the sound of…”Governor Ron DeSantis”.
And I think there is a major effort going on to demoralize us Trump-supporters.
It is a concerted effort…on all fronts.
Some have fallen for it.
And they want some company in their misery…so they are trying to infect others.
That way they will have some fellow wallowers.
So thank you for your cheerful optimism, Fle.
Heheh, @ the….“muh we are doomed” crowd.
I love that!
Hah.

wheatietoo

Drat…I forgot to do my anti-curse thingy and the curse-of-the-first-reply to the Last Comment, got me.

wheatietoo

And I *know* I was using the reply-box for Fle’s comment…because while I was typing, I was looking at Fle’s comment moved all the way over to the left…which is what happens when you are replying.

NebraskaFilly

It’s not just you, wheatie! Happens to me all the time and I just let it go. Everyone here is smart enough to figure it out, IMO.

Pat Frederick

some times you gotta color outside the lines…lol

Pat Frederick

I totally agree on the attempt to demoralize!
Yesterday I was reading some of the comments from “over there” on a thread about Jim Jordan and was shocked to read how he has “betrayed” conservatives 3 times–mostly having to do with his votes in regards to Ryan as Speaker IIRC.
It seemed a thinly veiled attempt to yet again splinter repubs in my opinion.
Politicians need to be able to compromise if anything in government is to be achieved and every compromise should not be viewed as a sellout–can’t always get what you want, but you get what you need type of thing.
and yes hindsight is 20/20 and maybe knowing what he knows now, he may not have voted for Ryan as speaker–but badmouthing Jordan? really?

Sylvia Avery

Oof, that is low. Jim Jordan hasn’t done anything wrong. And look, he can only do what one man can. He ran for Speaker. The vote wasn’t even close. How that bunch of fools in the House could vote for McCarthy over Jordan I don’t know, but they did. So it isn’t as though he alone can fight House leadership.

Deplorable Patriot

TBH, I would vote for McCarthy over Jordan if the money swaying votes has dried up. Jordan is too much like a bull in a china shop for that job. He is more useful elsewhere like being part of the bread and circuses show hearings. The Speaker needs to be at least a bit persuasive, and McCarthy was a whip at one point, IIRC.

NebraskaFilly

I would prefer a bull in a china shop in EVERY one of these positions! A shyteload of mini-Trumps! But hey, that’s just me!

Deplorable Patriot

There does need to be a bit of finesse involved.

Deplorable Patriot

I’ve cut “over there” out of my life and refuse to go there to wallow in what might have been, but I do follow a few Republican never Trumpers on other social media, and they’ve fallen for the doom and gloom. It’s very easy if you don’t forcibly cut the propaganda, i.e. Fox News, from life.

andrew1979

my mother told me she heard on TV yesterday that “if they do not impeach him, trump will be the first president to ever do jail time after his term” hahahaha… i mean, seriously?
if they are going to do something then do it and let’s get it on. these freaks need to be treated like the absolute children they are.

Pat Frederick

IIRC the poster thought Jordan’s vote FOR Ryan was the beginning of his treachery against conservatives and then 2 additional votes where he sided with Ryan…don’t remember to be honest. But I am savvy enough about politics to know that votes are not simple things–you may support a position in order to obtain a favorable committee assignment—and what not. But i hardly think Jordan sold out conservatives.

NebraskaFilly

As you say, it is just fact that this internal negotiating is on-going in pretty much every aspect of government, even within the beltway bandit world.

Sylvia Avery

DEFINITELY a concerted effort to demoralize MAGA. It has been brutal out there for the last week. I don’t watch much of the media because I can’t stomach it, but what little I have seen has about set my hair on fire.
They are all convinced, even some nominally or marginally “on our side” people like Andy McCarthy (I know, he was never Trump) who put out a piece that I refused to read where he apparently discussed his belief Mueller is going to charge PDJT–I think with campaign finance violations.
I just rolled my eyes and refused to listen. I’ve heard to many people talk about the legal expertise necessary to speak intelligently about campaign finance law and that it is not a criminal code.
That’s just one tiny example. I saw a video clip of Comey whining about PDJT over the weekend and was nearly violently ill. I really loathe him. While I was fumbling for the remote to change the channel I thought, “Oh I hope he gets arrested soon… I’d love to see the smirk wiped off his face.”
I can’t/won’t give that crap my time. What little exposure I had to it was toxic enough. I go back to basics. PDJT was chosen for this job at this time by a power bigger than us and I’m confident it wasn’t to let him fail at leading the people of this country (and apparently the world) out of globalist enslavement.

wheatietoo

I avoided watching any News all weekend…and I do not feel demoralized in the slightest.
If I watch any tv, I watch the Hallmark Channels these days.
And I must not be the only one.
Because they have grown to 3 channels now!
Another guilty pleasure is watching reruns of Stargate SG1 on the DelRay channel.
Heehee.

Sylvia Avery

As near as I can tell, the death of GHWB knocked the Caravan clean out of the news.
It is all about who will replace Kelly–will it be Mick Mulvaney? Mark Meadows? It’s not going to be Mike Pence’s COS because he is moving on. I heard a suggestion of David Bossie or maybe Whitaker, or maybe Mnuchin. Whatever. As long as they do right by PDJT that’s all I care about.
But mostly, as far as I can tell, it is media fantasy PDJT destruction porn time. Impeachment? Prison? Impeachment followed by prison? Will he be behind bars soon? Sooner? Maybe for Christmas?
They are all fricking insane. Mind you, this is what I can discern from changing channels or looking at a headline or two. I can’t bear to do anything more than that.
Hallmark Christmas movies sound just fine! And I have noticed there are more than ever. You’d think someone would catch a clue that there is a movie market out there that is under served.

Deplorable Patriot

As near as I can tell, the death of GHWB knocked the Caravan clean out of the news.
That may have been a by-product of it with the intention being to stymie D5. The team got the DS to expend valuable ammunition with the GHWB hooplah. They can’t get it back.
The caravan, though, was already losing steam, IMO, as the truth was making its way onto social media, and when it was clear that the mission was going to fail because Trump put troops on the border, the invasion force started to abandon the quest.

SteveInCO

Reasonable inferences, all.

Marica

Hallmark channels ROCK!! Even reruns!!

MysticRose80

I think this is the best approach to take (i.e. tuning out). It seems like the dark powers-that-be are doing everything they can to depress our side (which, to me, is indicative of a side that knows that they’re losing and are going all scorched earth).
Like you, I also believe that PDJT has been chosen to serve a divine purpose. The globalists can kick, scream, and wail all they want. Nothing is going to stop this purpose from being fulfilled (even if we may not have a full understanding of how events are going to unfold)
2019 will certainly be an interesting year.

Sylvia Avery

It is hard to pull back or give up on “the news” whatever that means in this day and age. However, as much as I want to stay informed I have to protect myself from exposure to toxic swill, also, because it will eat away at me.
I am choosing very carefully these days what I expose myself to and for how long.
I figure if something big blows, like Jim Comey gets arrested or George Soros finally draws his last breath I’ll hear about it one way or another.

Emeraldstar

“give up on “the news””
It’s easy to give up on “the [FAKE] news”, when one has sources like:
VSGPDJT’s tweets themselves
THIS site (a top-notch, crowd-sourced news/opinion aggregator)
Q’s posts themselves
the 8-chan boards
Patriots Soapbox YT channel
(and other derivative sites, to suit ones taste, on the internet)
With all these sources, I find I don’t need to visit any other source. Besides, those other “sources” get quoted / linked-to enough to get the gist of the world goings-on.
Red-pills, yum!

Marica

Exactly Emerald! I go here and to my little twitter world to get info.. If my peeps here and there don’t know about it, it’s probably FAKE NEWS!!

phoenixRising

Sylvia,
I have not watched TV PERIOD (news, sit-coms) in over 15 years!
Uninformed? I don’t think so….
And no matter how much one may think they know it is propaganda, one is STILL getting sucked in. It is toxic!!!!
As for one is going on in the White House, in the Administration, I ALWAYS wait for POTUS to tell us. What the heck does the Jeff Bezos CIA Wacompost, the Carlos Slim CIA NYSlimes know about POTUS?
Nada, zilch, zero, NO THING!!!

Plain Jane

And we keep praying while they keep scheming and lying. Hopefully that’s a win for Providence.

SteveInCO

“Oh I hope he gets arrested soon… I’d love to see the smirk wiped off his face.”

He and Brennan are so damned sanctimonious about it, I look forward to them both getting arrested.

NebraskaFilly

I pretty much watch nothing but OANN now. They cover all the OTHER news.

Tonawanda

I also refused to read the McCarthy article. It just happened to come out at a time when the leftist Narrative everywhere you turned was that Trump had committed a crime and was going to jail (sheer nonsense on both counts).
Andy Candyass just happened to drop an article supporting the leftist narrative. Shocking.

TheseTruths

@Sylvia: “…there is a major effort going on to demoralize us Trump-supporters.”
I think this is one goal of Leftist reporting. They are feeding their base, they are using wishful thinking, and they are spreading propaganda and lies to manufacture a false sence of negative momentum. (They started doing this even before Pres. Trump was elected, and it has escalated.) But they are also flooding the country with negatives about Pres. Trump and MAGA to demoralize his base. WE won’t be affected, but some on the fringe might.
The pics of people all over the world following Q are encouraging.

Oh noes…in an act of defiance, Hobby Lobby has dared to portray white people in a positive way!

Very sneaky, that Hobby Lobby.

Pat Frederick

that was beautiful!

Sylvia Avery

I know, right???? Ha!

Pat Frederick

btw I was just at Hobby Lobby on Saturday –testing my crowd phobia–and yes, their Christmas stuff was 50% off already–but there wasn’t much left…trees and cans, some decorations. I went looking for some little crafts to do with my granddaughter–i saw aisles of them last month–there were none…but all the cashiers were merrily calling out Merry Christmas! to all their customers. Loved it!

Gil

If you have a michaels craft store, lots of little Christmas things to do. We still havent done all of what we have.

Pat Frederick

we do–well the mall does–the mall is over an hour away—but yes I hit that one too when I get there…and the Joannes…

Deplorable Patriot

I was at Michael’s today. All ornaments 60% off.
Our tree just came into the house today. It’s still falling from the net being cut off of it. I have no idea if I need more ornaments or not.

NebraskaFilly

Ha! Talk about crowd phobia! Altho I don’t consider it a phobia – I just despise rude people and so very many are these days. BTW, for little crafts for your granddaughter, you might try http://www.doverpublications.com. I get their catalog “Dover Children’s Big Book” and it has TONS of crafts, mind-benders, books (of course), paper dolls, stickers, how to make Origami, magic kits, and on and on and on. And, IMO, at VERY reasonable prices. Check it out. I am getting ready to order a couple of items for my 9 year old granddaughter. Last year I bought her five different sets of paper dolls from other countries – I think they were $2/ea. She put them together and took them to school, where they used them in class.

Pat Frederick

awesome! thanks for the suggestion!
my granddaughter loves coming to Grandma’s–we paint rocks, dance and sing to all the latest country songs and act as silly as we can. and we draw…one weekend all we drew were animal butts–lol–but she had the best time. I will definitely look at Dover!

Plain Jane

Deplorable Patriot

It is frustrating, but there is a reason which has probably not yet been revealed.

Pat Frederick

I pray that Soro develops an unstoppable, agonizing, burning itch in a spot that exceeds his grasp…

NebraskaFilly

I want to see him (and his spawn) broke, destitute and on the streets first but, unfortunately, that probably won’t happen. BTW, what is the opinion here of this notion of blood transfusions keeping some of these cadavers breathing? Seems a bit much to me but…….???

wheatietoo

Oh the blood-transfusions thing is real.
The blood of toddlers is the most coveted, because it has the strongest rejuvenative benefits.
It’s expensive though…and wears off within a week.
How do you think Hillary was able to look so good at times…and then, a few days later she would look like death warmed over.

Pat Frederick

you’re serious about that???
gees the world is so much more twisted than I ever thought…
I honestly thought that phenomenon was due more to a body double…

wheatietoo

Yes, I am serious.
It was discovered in Alzheimer’s research.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2733685/Young-blood-Injections-youthful-plasma-cure-Alzheimer-s-scientists-claim.html
But then, they also discovered that young blood had a rejuvenative effect.

Pat Frederick

wow just had my mind blown again…so vampires are real sort of…drink the blood=eternal youth…

NebraskaFilly

Seriously? I just can’t process this completely…..SMH – do you think that is what happened that time she collapsed, and then was seen within hours on the street greeting strangers and staging the interaction with the little girl? Or was that a body double?

wheatietoo

Yes, seriously.
It was discovered as a byproduct of Alzheimer’s research.
https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/10807478/Vampire-therapy-could-reverse-ageing-scientists-find.html
And yeah, that’s probably what happened when Hillary went to Chelsea’s apt…there are reports that there is a ‘hospital room’ in that apt.

andrew1979

have you ever seen Pink Floyd’s “the wall”?
think…just a little pin prick – this will get you through the show…

NebraskaFilly

Oh, yes! I know the song well….

andrew1979

nebraska – you should check out the actual movie “the wall” if you have not seen it…

NebraskaFilly

I haven’t and I will. Thanks.

andrew1979

regarding the wall movie – your mileage may vary as everyone sees things differently, but it is a work that shows how the powers that be will control and determine your lives at the disregard of you and your well being as long as their goal is advanced through manipulation and coercion. there are other themes also but in general it is a good piece showing everything from class struggles, love and loss at the hands of the state, self determination and then self sabotage and sacrifice…
you also get a real feeling for the songs that you’ve heard over and over on the radio but not in the context that they were intended by the artists.
pink floyd as a band is an interesting research diversion, including what i consider their most interesting character, syd barrett, one of the original founders of the band, but i digress 🙂

Emeraldstar

Pat, I understand your sentiment, but …
When one prays, one must pray for something positive. Praying for an ill … defeats the whole purpose of prayer. Prayer is for GOOD. (IMO)
Put all vengeance into the able hands of God, for it is His domain, not ours.
I’m not a Biblical scholar … but I recall the phrase “”Vengeance is mine” saith the Lord.” (sp? paraphrase?)
Please don’t waste prayers for evil purpose, for destruction – even if it’s against the evil ones among us.
Wishing ill on ANYONE – is a curse, not a blessing.
We’re all frustrated! For now. Don’t become like them, so as to (temporarily) defeat them! Because, in this way, they aren’t defeated, but are strengthened, for a future time.
I would pray that S***s receives his just due.

singularZoe

Emerald, I agree. I do pray for justice to be done and for our protection, but pretty much just put the matter before the Lord and ask for His mercy and provision for His people, and that His will be done.

Emeraldstar

Yes.
We cannot defeat them … by becoming them!
It just doesn’t work that way.
Blessings to you, Zoe!

singularZoe

You, too, Emerald. Oh, believe me, I have my thoughts about what iI’d like to see happen to these people, but I’m not the Lord, and He doesn’t need me telling Him what should happen to them.

Pat Frederick

sorry! I left off the sarcasm tag…I would never use prayer in that manner. (I will try to remember you all can’t see me laughing when i post things like that…it was supposed to be funny/snarky…not serious)

He needs more time on earth to redeem himself and to accept Redemption perhaps?

Soros has a son(s?) who will take his place. It’s like those movies where you fend off the approaching creatures but more spring up.

He has FOUR sons, and a daughter, who is a HUGE proponent (natch) of Planned (un)Parenthood.
I think they should be welcomed to an all- (OK, some- ) expense-paid permanent trip to Uncle Vlad’s snow sport and rock-breaking resort. Complete with revoked citizenships and Persona non grata status in the USA…

PeteC

Lucifer is keeping him around for his bidding!!!

andrew1979

seriously – go back to the “Arab Spring” and how the egypt and tunisian revolutions specifically were lauded for the use of social media to get out the “truth” from the citizens of those countries.
remember there were even rapes happening in crowds and people were “tweeting for help” and without twitter and facebook these totalitarian governments would have shut down the protests and nobody would have known.
they LOVED social media back then and said “any attempt to censor or shut down social media would be a sin against mankind”…
just like they used to like wikileaks…

Well thank you, Georgia / Florida!
Have to admit, I found it strange that NO photos would be free of enforced copyright – but I understand the photographers’ claim to origination.
I’m sure I’ll figure it out, now having your help on how to do so.
Btw, last night I was going back over prior threads, and I noticed your wonderful reply to my apology a few days ago. I’m glad it made you feel better!
In my family, I’m the only guy who has the ability, and motivation, to say – and mean – “I’m sorry”. The others can’t seem to bring themselves to such an apparently obvious admission. This psychological trait has caused a slew of family problems (dysfunction, extraordinaire!), but I escaped it (mostly).
I chose “Emeraldstar” (in a slight conceit) because that color of star is the rarest color – in the visible spectrum – in the universe. So said the Harvard prof (teaching Astronomy at their [discount] Extension School) in the course I took. I chose “emerald”, instead of “green”, to differentiate between emitted light, v. reflected light. Scientists haven’t (yet) adopted this convention.
I’m psyched to have the picture of the comet! Thanks again …

NebraskaFilly

Ach! These screen names confuse me – always thought you were a female! I have to admit to being somewhat of a luddite when it comes to astronomy. On the one hand, when I hear them talking about some comet or something approaching earth that has been traveling for 160 million years, I just throw up my hands and cannot get HOW they can know (and prove) that! Then again, my globalist Mason friend sent me a photo on FB of an overview of all the universes out there and where earth was on the map and it was smaller than a grain of sand! So, this just completely gets me discombobulated and thoroughly flummoxed. Add in my being a Christian and trying to fit those concepts into Christian beliefs and……..I am a goner!
