Stealing. Reposting on FB. TY!

I’m not sure of his main premise that the new positions taken recently are based on a “Trump be Trump” change in position. In fact, I’m pretty sure the “new” positions have been timed with strategic precision. But that’s just my take.
I just follow the Q Team along with the Wolf pack…

Check out Melania’s Christmas stocking! I love it!

lol completely missed that detail when i first looked at it!

Sylvia Avery

I did, too, it was only the second time I looked at it that I saw what he had done with the stocking and it made me laugh.

Wow, praying for Israel

certainly seems like these people know stuff like they were all clued in together.

Pat Frederick

this story was on the morning news here and of course, being me, I shouted at the tv that there were similar deaths during the Obama years…the news anchors must have gone deaf because they didn’t respond…so I turned it off.

Sylvia Avery

I enjoyed reading this, so I thought I’d share it here.
“I am a nationalist.
There it is, naked in black and white, and my younger self who believed all the lies about nationalism leading to war is cringing a little in the back of my brain.
But actually, the important thing here is: why wouldn’t I be a nationalist? Or, if you prefer it spun another way: why would someone who has left her place of birth and the family and connections there, who had to acculturate to a new land, and who finally became a citizen of that land not be a nationalist? What sense does that even make?
And what is one a “nationalist” in opposition to? Internationalists? And what is internationalism, precisely?…..”

Pat Frederick

thanks for posting–it’s quite long, but very entertaining and well written!

singularZoe

Like that, Sylvia, as a fellow nationalist. Just feels good to proclaim it.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I read something once, many years ago, that tried to draw a distinction between a “patriot” and a “nationalist.” It ran: A patriot is someone who loves his country. A nationalist is someone who hates all other countries. At the time, I found that to be a useful distinction.
I’m certainly not that kind of nationalist; and I doubt most people today who call themselves nationalist, especially those around here, mean it that way. (Sure, we have specific gripes about specific countries–that’s not what I mean, I talk about hating other countries simply because they are “other.”)
Today’s “nationalist” is simply a “patriot” by that old distinction, which no one seems to follow any more–except that the Left still finds it useful. Someone calling themselves a nationalist will be treated by the Left AS IF that old distinction were in play, and the nationalist (patriot) will be assumed to be hating everyone else.

Elizabeth Carter

Sylvia, People who care about the nebulous “everyone” actually care about no one.

tessa50

We can care about and pray for everyone. We simply can’t support everyone. First we take care of our own, then send aid and help in other ways where we can. When our own don’t come first, we can’t help anyone.

The Capture of the Hessians at Trenton by John Trumbull (1756 – 1843)
The Battle of Trenton began on this day in 1776 at about 8:00 in the morning. It lasted about an hour. The Continental Army had begun their march at about 2:00 PM on Christmas Day and headed for the place on the Delaware River where it was crossed during the night.
Little known fact:
James Monroe, future President of the U.S., and most well-known for the Monroe Doctrine, was wounded at the Battle of Trenton.

itswoot

In the Trumbull painting, Lt. James Monroe can be seen on the ground left of center, and being attended to by Dr. Riker (left-click to enlarge).
It was a severe wound (severed artery) that Monroe nearly died from. General Washington cited him for bravery during the battle, afterwards promoting him to Captain.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Nice little history factoid there. Thank you.
I’ve taken, in recent years, to deliberately flying a Betsy Ross (13 stars in the circle) flag overnight Christmas into the next day in commemoration of the march, but I missed it this year as I was away from home most of the day and simply forgot to put it up before I left.

itswoot

That’s a great way to commemorate the battle. Thanks for sharing.
I spent part of the day refreshing my memory by re-reading parts of “1776” by David McCullough. Also read some online sources on the battle.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

There was a movie called The Crossing, too.

‘Stunning’: 80% using Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion are ineligible, Louisiana report finds
https://m.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/dec/4/obamacare-medicaid-expansion-beneficiaries-ineligi/?
Excerpt:
Louisiana’s legislative auditor wanted to know how the state’s expansion of Medicaid under Obamacare was doing, so he picked 100 people who were deemed eligible under the rules.
He found that 82 of them made so much money that they shouldn’t have qualified for the benefits they received.
Auditor Daryl G. Purpera, who issued his findings last month to little fanfare outside of Louisiana, figured if those statistics hold true for the rest of the expanded Medicaid population in his state, then the losses to ineligible beneficiaries could be as high as $85 million.

It’s obvious that Christopher Steele has come out from hiding just to throw Clinton under the bus for one reason: to protect/hide the British involvement in the FISA spying scandal against me, Trump and others around him. Remember, the UK called Trump to stop declassification.

Pat Frederick

Hubby got me Spygate (Dan Bongino) for Christmas and I am excited to read it! He also got me a (beginner) Kona guitar (and the guitar for dummies learning package…) I love to learn!!
Besides the new rifle I bought him, I got him several dvds–Air America (CIA, military, heroin), Bird on a Wire (FBI sells out a guy in witness protection), and Broken Arrow (military officer steals 2 nukes)…he quickly picked up on the theme…lol

PeteC

You will like Spygate, Pat. Good time line at the back that I use to add dates to so as to have a handle on things!

Pat Frederick

thanks!! After housework is done, (as my mom used to say–a lick and a promise…lol) I’m getting some tea and settling in…with a highlighter…in case I wanna refer back…always the student!

Those movies are modern (sort-of) classics. Here’s a couple of recent topical action flicks that I thought were well done and well acted: American Assassin and Sicario. Both are fairly realistic and scary.

Pat Frederick

thanks I will check them out!

NebraskaFilly

Loved Bird on a Wire – with Goldie Hawn, if I remember correctly.

Pat Frederick

yes…we haven’t gone to a movie theater since The Runaway Bride was in theaters–so we tend to buy and watch older movies–I don’t know who half the latest “stars” are anymore…lol

NebraskaFilly

Same here – I have taken my granddaughter to the movies a couple of times but as for me, last one I went to was War Horse, after which I purchased the DVD.

Pat Frederick

was that about McCain or Hillary? LOL

Neither of them would be worthy of cleaning up the War Horse’s piles!!!!

PDJT’s half hour Christmas conference call with the military.
SD says: ‘The participants were units from all five branches of the Armed Forces: •Army – Task Force Talon, Anderson Air Force Base, Guam; •Marine Corps – Marine Attack Squadron 223, Sheik Isa Airbase, Bahrain; •Navy – Naval Forces Central Command, Manama, Bahrain; •Air Force – 379th Air Expeditionary Wing, Al Udied Air Base, Qatar; •Coast Guard – Coast Guard District 7, Juneau, Alaska.’

I have no way to know how true or false this is. I found the link on Voat QRC and thought it was interesting:comment image
It could be total baloney, but if so well done baloney.

No problem. It was good reading it all in one go.
Thanks very much for posting!

Tonawanda

YW!

churchmouse

A detailed post from SD on Dec. 25, ‘The FBI and DOJ Were Working to Protect Hillary Clinton a Lot Longer Than Generally Discussed’, might be related to the information you posted. It’s all about the Middle East.
Excerpts:
‘Under the code name “Zero Footprint” Marc Turi originally drew up the plan to coordinate the flow of weapons from the U.S. through the intermediary of Qatar into Libya. Those U.S. weapons ended up in Libya and Syria being used by the enemies of the U.S., specifically al-Qaeda. [All Citations within The Benghazi Brief]
‘In February of 2012 Asst. Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro admitted the State Department had been attempting to relocate and buy-back those weapons since August of 2011. However, on September 11th 2012, while those efforts were still ongoing, the attacks in Benghazi against the U.S. State Department Ambassador Chris Stevens took place, and four Americans were killed.
‘In 2014 the DOJ filed charges against Marc Turi essentially for non registered weapons shipments. Turi’s defense was that the weapons were unregistered because the State Department and the CIA needed covert cover. Elements within the CIA confirmed the basic outline for Turi’s assertion.
‘In 2015 Turi provided Fox News with documents and email exchanges he had with high-level members of Congress as well as military, and State Department employees to back up his claim that the Obama administration authorized in 2011, at the height of the Arab Spring, a covert weapons program that spun out of control.
‘Marc Turi’s legal defense team said if the DOJ was going to prosecute him for the arms shipments, his defense would necessarily reveal how Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was actually the driver of the entire program …’
Turi’s case was to begin on November 8, 2016 (the day of the election). A month previously, a judge had ruled Turi could use the documentation he had to defend himself.
However, charges were dropped.
SD cited the Fox News article about it:
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/10/05/doj-abruptly-drops-case-against-gun-runner-who-threatened-to-reveal-clintons-libya-dealings.html
‘The move may avert a release of potentially explosive documents.
‘“I am glad this horrific five-year ordeal is over and I am pleased to be able to move on with my life,” Turi told Fox News in a statement. “The American public has the right to know that an injustice was committed against an innocent American.”’

Tonawanda

Very, very interesting.
Mr. Turi’s last comments ought to turn “American” into the plural.

Pat Frederick

wowzers!

Wow…. I don’t often read super long posts, but this one… I couldn’t stop and, if true, it really puts together a lot of puzzle pieces. Thank God she didn’t win in 2016!

Tonawanda

It makes a lot of sense.

Tonawanda

TY for clarifying what this was!
And great insights intl what this might mean!

NYGuy54

I think it is filled with larp type stuff. I don’t believe it I have seen this a while ago as well.

Tonawanda

I see that now. It was someone who was repeating past posts.
But they all are very plausible, and explanatory of so many things.

Greg Cox

If true, it would confirm an inclination I put forth a few weeks ago, that a successful Clinton Foundation Investigation (that has been supposedly been taking place for a couple years), could, ALONE, bring down most of the Deep State.

Roberta

Thank you.
I know I have read much, if not all, of the material in the first three or four screens. Where? Does anyone know? Did Q post links to this material??

PS: I did not see it on 4-chan; I have never gone to that board and only rarely scan the anon responses to Q posts on 8-chan.

Pat Frederick

so there’s a movie about RBG and apparently a “cult” has or is forming about her? Imo, that means she’s in the line-up for the next MOAB from POTUS. They are trying to elevate her importance–yes she is on SCOTUS, but not worthy of overwhelming the news cycle for long. So they elevate her status so they can displace all attention for yet another week…something big must be incoming.

churchmouse

Yes, the link is below.
How can this woman keep voting when she’s having MAJOR surgery in her MID-80s?? I think the question has been asked here or at CTH. Someone should investigate this travesty of her SPEEDY recoveries!

Pat Frederick

I read other accounts of people having lung resections and most are out 6 weeks–and these were not 85 year old people either…

Pat Frederick

wow! that’s amazing, right?

oh, she’s one of the Indispensable Ones…I met many of those–got sick from a few who should have stayed home too.

I’m going to ask because I don’t know. Does she have to be there physically to vote?

I have no idea, tessa.
I, too, would like to know.

I went to barnes n noble looking for kids books several weeks ago. I found several “kids” books about her. Making her cool and fun and a badass. I turned the covers around….. Propaganda

Pat Frederick

doesn’t she advocate for lowering the consent age to 12? scary there are children’s books about her…are there subliminal messages in them?

Gil

She does! Idk didnt read…

PeteC

You know this Clinton Foundation bullshit reminds historically of the starting point of all this foundational crap. It was 1913, when the Houses of wealth in America got their Federal Reserve Act passed with the aid of their puppet Woodrow Wilson (but this central bank would have no time limits attached to it as far as duration like the previous three central banks). Then, to pay for the f**king interest for the issue of the money the Reserve would print out of nowhere, they passed the 16th Amendment to tax Americans at the federal level the same year (federal income tax!). This revenue stream (robbed from the little people– you and me!) provided the funds to pay the interest on money borrowed from the Federal Reserve by the federal government.
But at the same time, the Houses of wealth were writing federal laws pertaining to these newly formed foundations they created in order to never pay income tax!!!! Of course, they had control of the IRS from the beginning also. The Clintons have taken the foundation scam to the next level. This could get interesting, if all the investigations around the Clinton Foundation are taking place!!!

Tonawanda

Prohibition was a major reason for the 16th Am, IIRC, both in terms of loss of revenue, and in terms of the political forces aligned on several related issues.
501(c)(3)s are a major source of communist influence in this country IMO and also a major source of corruption. Abolish the income tax and abolish charitable deductions.

Tonawanda

It is complicated and not straightforward.
I am not concerned about the wealthy people as much as the political organizations like the SPCA, highly anti-American and powerful, while selling a Phony Narrative.
I for one would like to see universities be business enterprises or actual charitable organizations dedicated to education, not destroying America.

Pat Frederick

Great thread from Brian Cates (excerpted):

churchmouse

Father of seven-year-old girl (Santa, ‘marginal’ conversation) says story has been blown out of all proportion:

From the article:
‘In fact, dad Donald J. Lloyd, 40 (who, as it happens, shares a first name and middle initial with the president), told BuzzFeed News he would have used similar language with his daughter, and that he thinks the remark is being blown out of proportion and unfairly politicized.
‘“I think it’s crazy it became a big deal. It’s Christmastime. I’d love to keep politics out of Christmas,” said Donald. “It didn’t bother me — I like to talk to my kids like adults.”
‘Collman’s mom, Erica, 40, agreed. She added that she found Trump to be extremely generous.
‘“I’m a teacher. I’m OK with the vocabulary,” said Erica, who teaches third-grade students. “He was very kind. I was very impressed with the phone call.”’

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

To be sure, putting a barrier up on one part of the border will stop the flow of people across the border there–they’ll go somewhere else a little more inconvenient (in this case further from El Paso) but continue to be easy to cross. I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if the smuggling doesn’t continue at the same pace (or at 95+% of the pace) as before, just somewhere else.
To many idiots, that justifies not doing anything anywhere on the border. To me (and I like to think I’m not an idiot, despite trying to prove it so many times during my life), it means to build walls in those other areas, as well. What will be interesting is seeing what happens when ALL of the border is hard to sneak across.

Gudthots

The other argument I hear is about how they will just tunnel. It’s just another thoughtless slave media talking point. The more we advertise the new levels of difficulty, the less people in Central America will be duped into paying the coyotes to try and illegally enter. The only people left attempting to cross a militarized border area can rightly be treated as enemy combatants at that point.
Thankfully I’ve followed Thomas Wictor long enough to know that our friends in Israel already have technology for not only detecting underground works but to also destroy them. I assure any one that brings the subject up that Israel would be more than happy to assist us with these kinds of border security situations.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Granted, however, that our border is a LOT longer than theirs. But the part under the Rio Grande should be impossible to tunnel under without a major civil engineering effort, due to the water table being at the surface of the river there.

‘“This is huge. It really is,” he told The Washington Times. “As more and more state auditors realize what this is doing to them, it’s going to come to a point where all 50 of them are going to have to declare they can no longer say the state’s books are accurate. I really do believe that day is coming.”
‘Louisiana may be an outlier. A federal inspector general’s report this year found 38 out of a sample of 150 Medicaid beneficiaries in California were potentially ineligible. Taken statewide, that would mean more than 350,000 questionable customers.
‘Another report estimated nearly 50,000 questionable beneficiaries in New York …’

Thank you ChurchMouse for all the news and links you post. What a lot of effort and time that takes!!!!
I depend on you, since I don’t inhabit other sites!!! Again, thank you, CM!!!!

churchmouse

Thank you, friend. I greatly appreciate your letting me know! 🙂

churchmouse

Exactly.
A number of us had suspected this for several years.
Finally, at last, we have some proof.
I hope this goes further, along with illegal immigration and more.
The President is well aware of this. Again, as with Q drops, it’s a matter of getting it out to the public in tiny bites so that they finally get the picture.
Yes, we’re getting there, but there is still a long way to go.

churchmouse

I’d go back even further, wolf.
What about LBJ in 1963 and, even earlier, the guys Eisenhower warned us about early in 1960, those in Congress who were part of the MIC?
Anyone over 60 born in the US has been living this their whole lives.

It’s the ‘Relax, you’re soaking in it’ advert.

singularZoe

I know Judicial Watch just reported HUD is still in a mess, continuing Obama programs that give money to leftist groups like those affiliated with La Raza and others jut as bad. Sounds like a huge mess, would have thought Ben Carson would know better than this.

churchmouse

It’s tough to get rid of, and as a couple of us said about someone else in the administration the other day, you start sacking people left and right, well, you look like a bad guy.
Carson is anything but and doesn’t want to look like one. I cannot blame him.
You’re right, Zoe, HUD is ‘a huge mess’, and, Carson (God bless him) surely knows it.
Let’s continue to pray for him along with all our other MAGA favourites.
The rot has been deep within HUD, probably for at least 50 years.
Something to keep in mind, considering that one must have to have connections to work there. It’s probably a ‘closed shop’, as Britons would say: i.e. ‘members only’.

singularZoe

C, you are right, we do need to pray for him, but if he is going to worry about what people think of him, he probably isn’t up to the job of cleaning out the rot. I agree he is a good man with probably good intentions. Still disappointed.

churchmouse

I don’t know if that is what Dr Carson actually thinks.
I posited that on here the other day, and, IIRC, someone else did, too.
The reality of the situation is that if you entered — cold — into an institution that had a deeply ingrained, long-term, corrupt culture opposed to what it should be (and antithetical to your natural temperament, i.e. nice and clean), would you really go in all guns blazing?
I sure as Hades would not go in aggressively. There must be thousands of HUD employees opposing Dr Carson.
You know, we’re aware of Arkancides and other mysterious deaths, yet, we go on about peaceful Dr Carson going on to wipe out all the corruption that is in HUD?
If we paused for a moment to think about the realities (I’ve been in a much smaller situation, still career limiting), we would reconsider our keyboard battalion rhetoric.

churchmouse

Why did this not come out during the 2016 campaign?! We all knew about the bone spurs. If this is so accurate, Hillary would have used it at the time:

churchmouse

As someone said on CTH in response (very true, this):
‘Eric C. says:
December 26, 2018 at 8:45 am
‘Name one President who served active-duty and was deployed to the front lines during Vietnam, hmmmmmm.
‘Compare that to the WWII generation of Presidents.
‘Thank goodness President Trump should be the last President who we will need to hear about what they did or did not do during Vietnam.
‘It will will be interesting to see the Gulf War generation run for the highest office and how the choice to serve in the armed forces or not affects the campaigns.’

Pat Frederick

well look at the way the tweeter spelled POTUS’s name…tells you everything you need to know right there…

churchmouse

Indeed!

churchmouse

We knew this was coming (and, I think it’s happened before over the past decade or so):

pgroup

Is DJT our president or what? How come these people aren’t released to the nearest military base, where they have plenty of tents and open space?
Something is wrong with ICE. Maybe they think it’s still 2016.

NebraskaFilly

They simply do not have adequate housing available. Cloward & Piven in the flesh!

churchmouse

Or, perhaps there are payoffs to just slip these people through on the sly.
There’s a woman, Jessica Vaughn from the Center for Migration Studies (cis.org), a conservative immigration watch organisation, on The Howie Carr Show as I write (Wednesday, December 26). She says there are adult men waiting for their ‘children’ in Texas cities and towns where buses stop. She says she has personally witnessed this herself more than once.
She says that Latin American countries — including illegals from there — essentially think the United States is powerless to stop illegal immigration. The smugglers are riding high thanks to a few American judges, she says.
She said that the Trump administration is making progress, albeit slowly. ICE is having more effect on deporting people back to other countries, such as China and Cuba.

Tonawanda

Anybody in their right mind can see how weak minded America has become.
Everyone is going to exploit that weakness.

churchmouse

YES!
Thanks, Tonawanda.
They’ve had it all worked out for years and years. It’s standard operating procedure (SOP) by now.

tessa50

What happened to they wouldn’t be allowed to cross the border, let alone be released? I thought that’s what those tents were for?

Love and the maturity to cultivate it, disappearing along with the relative societal impacts.
Psychologists and other theorists blame many things for the American withdrawal from sex and love: the suffocating influence of the smartphone, emotional immaturity and fragility, and fixation on career to the extent that everything else is an irksome distraction. But all of those culprits, while relevant, seem symptomatic of a more radical problem. Perhaps America is a culture ill equipped for love.
Erich Fromm, a Jewish psychologist and philosopher who moved from Germany to New York to escape Nazi persecution, wrote in his brilliant and forever salient book The Art of Loving that love, like any art—engineering, painting, playing an instrument—requires knowledge and effort.
“Our whole culture,” Fromm explained, “is based on an appetite for buying.” As a result, most people think of love only as an acquisition—how can they be loved—rather than learning how to love another. Falling in love is involuntary, but to protect and preserve a more mature and long-term love, the lover must have the discipline, maturity, and faith to “stand in love.”
Writing in 1956, Fromm eerily predicted the “disintegration of love in Western Culture”: “If love is the capacity of the mature, productive character, it follows that the capacity to love in an individual living in any given culture depends on the influence this culture has on the character of the average person.”
The West, and especially its cultural leader the United States, was becoming an “alienated culture of success” in which “life has no goal except the one to move, no principle except the one of fair exchange, no satisfaction expect the one to consume.”
Fromm’s four factors essential for the cultivation and maintenance of love—discipline, concentration, patience, and supreme concern—suffer assault in such a culture. Love is also “dependent on the relative absence of narcissism,” and therefore “requires the development of humility, objectivity, and reason.”

I agree, DP, and the god they believe in is a god of theiar own making. Worship of self and of youth and sex without love.

Gil

Theres more of that in the article. Worship of self as god, goddess, princess, etc has played into it, along with way too much time on social media instead of being social for kids and young adults

Yes, interesting! What does Sec. Pompeo run around in?

This is the most thorough dive into Fusion GPS and its complex weave of people I have ever seen. It introduces brand new names that don’t get publicity. It connects dots back to Great Britain. And it makes links that are pretty disturbing using facial recognition software. We have a different pic of Nellie Ohr (which I appreciate)
It’s a long and dense article but it puts any previous analysis into Fusion GPS to shame..allocate some time when you read this. Oh and you probably won’t like the conclusions. Still it’s a very informative piece

NY54– very interesting to note (and I hope WMoon reads this), that Nellie Ohr worked for Mitre Corp. during the years of Jan. 2000–Dec. 2008. Why??? They had direct involvement in 9-11!
Mitre has provided computer and information technology to the FAA and US Air Force since the late 1950’s. Mitre is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) for the Dept. Of Defense, the FAA, and the IRS. According to Mitre, they are active (imbedded) in the military departments, defense and intelligence agencies, the combatant commands, and elements of both the office of Sec. of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
According to Indira Singh (IT and risk consultant with JP Morgan Chase and DARPA)—“Ptech was with Mitre in the basement of the FAA for two years prior to 9-11. Their specific job is to look at interoperability issues the FAA had with NORAD and the Air Force in the case of an emergency. If anyone was in a position to know that the FAA, that there was a window of opportunity or to insert software or to change anything, it would have been Ptech along with Mitre.” (Sept. 9, 2004). Ptech software “is utilized at the highest levels of almost every government and military and defense organization in this country.” This includes Secret Service, FBI, DoD, House of Representatives, Treasury Dept., IRS, US Navy and AF, and FAA.
My point? They had the capability to confuse optics and responses across the board on 9-11, especially when you also factor in that a military exercise involving a similar scenario as 9-11 called Vigilant Guardian was taking place on the East Coast that very day (9-11)—which is why those responding were asking, “Is this real-world or exercise?”

NYGuy54

I did not know that. There are way more people involved in this than we previously knew.

PeteC

Also to note, several investigators have speculated that Nellie Ohr has a CIA connection, or is CIA!!!

PeteC

Wolfie—this gets deep!!! And with your exceptionalism, you will get to the bottom of it all!!!

PeteC

Very much understand, Wolfie!!! Put it together, big boy! We’ll wait! 😉

PeteC

“The easiest way to carry out a false-flag attack is by setting up a military exercise that simulates the very attack you want to carry out.” (Captain Eric H. May, former US Army military intelligence officer)

PeteC

Examples—TWA Flight 800 (1996), 9-11, the bombings of the London Underground and a bus in 2005, the sinking of the Baltic ferry Estonia in 1994–all with security drills or military exercises occurring at the same time involving similar scenarios!

Molly Pitcher

Another example ..didn’t some of the teachers @ Parkland say in tv interviews that they thought the shooting was a planned drill?
Another curious factoid..Boston Marathon…2012…
“We were fully staffed and ready to respond because we ANTICIPATED having more than the typical number of emergency room admissions that day,” Ferrer told The Nation’s Health. “That’s why there weren’t more lives lost.”
Hours earlier, the commission activated its Office of Public Health Preparedness and Medical Reserve Corps in accordance with its regular responsibilities at the marathon, which this year attracted about 27,000 registrants. The day of the bombings, nearly 200 Boston health department personnel were already on site, overseeing medical activities and treating runners with injuries and health problems inside medical tents set up along the marathon route.

Molly Pitcher

The Boston example..not a smoking gun but interesting to plan extra personnel for an event that previously had no catastrophes

PeteC

Yes, Molly! And I hate to say this for fear of being labeled a kook, but we’re there not some sort of emergency response exercises going on simultaneously to Sandy Hook???

Molly Pitcher

From one kook to another, I recall hearing that but haven’t saved anything to prove it.

PeteC

Lol, Molly!!! Looks of a feather, hang together! But in this case, it’s the Q-tree!

PeteC

That was supposed to be “kooks”!!!

Molly Pitcher

hahah PeteC, the lunatic fringe ain’t so crazy after all!

NYGuy54

so basically you are saying the reality we have has been staged

PeteC

Amen, brother!!!!

singularZoe

That makes incomprehensible actions of some more comprehensible, Wolfie.

NYGuy54

There is way, way more in there than that (even though that is interesting). The dot connecting is rather fantastic. Pappadopolous would probably love this…make his head nod up and down

Spab

That was quite a detailed analysis. The rats do run in packs don’t they. NYGuy you dug deep for that one. thanks for the info.

Pat Frederick

I saw that being reported OT…really goofy question—I just finished a workout, so my brain is exhausted–lol
any plane the President is on is AF1, correct? so isn’t it just a plane being spotted (if the call sign is not AF1)
what am I missing here? they spotted a plane–anyone could be on it, since the call sign is not AF1…

Pat Frederick

IRAQ????

Call sign is not Air Force One, thus the President is not on board.
Not if he was doing a clandestine visit.

Good grief! Nothing but hate and snark in the comments – so disgusting!

Pat Frederick

thanks for the warning, I won’t bother to read.

So when you browse the twitter responses to PT, Sarah Sanders or any pro Trump supporters you will see the vile depths of TDS. The worst part is there is clearly no way to bring the two sides together on anything. This is Civil War level hate. The good news is most of the Vegans and soy boys are on their side.

Gudthots

Yes. Indeed. Love our Lion!

NYGuy54

Thank you. This is why you cannot believe anything in the media. We are not withdrawing any troops from Iraq. They are going to use the base there as a staging area for any potential move in Syria. Check out how close Iraq is to Syria.
The media, the neverTrumpers, and the fake MAGA people never tell you that.

Roberta

Looks like AF1 can be (and was) “cloaked” for this clandestine departure/arrival. Military planning at its finest.

Gudthots

Signing MAGA hats!

not sure what that means exactly, but did you get to see it?
an artist’s exhibit–of a gun…made of guns…and as the person capturing the exhibit on video rotates to see the side view, the image revealed is no longer a gun, but a map of the USA

NebraskaFilly

There y’a go – there is a gun pictured – bet that’s why! SMH

Pat Frederick

it’s a shame…it’s a work of art.
I didn’t realize the image was 3 D until the videographer moved to capture the side and he was also surprised to see that from the side, the image created is the USA…it’s very cool
