I’m going to start by saying that I am 100% in agreement with Sundance at CTH about his assessment of the SERIOUSNESS of the problem at DOJ and FBI. Which I “urgently urge” you to read here:
Sundance speculates on a variety of possible solutions to the very real problem of a highly corrupted DOJ and FBI. These are all very sobering solutions.
Those solutions (which include various forms of complete replacement of leadership) may sound radical to some, but if any of you remember my half-joking offer to lead the FBI, wearing an AR-15 on my BACK, and to start with FIRING everybody and rehiring based on PURE security principles, then you know that I’m not kidding – there are some serious problems there.
Now – given that FBI Director Wray has already replaced an extraordinary number of field office heads – possibly missing one or two – one could make the argument that he is doing EXACTLY what Sundance is talking about. In fact, I am convinced that Director Wray is a “White Hat”. If you want to see my reasoning, here you go.
My ultimate assessment of Wray as a trustworthy individual and as a reformer may differ with Sundance, but I have to admit that SUNDANCE IS RIGHT – the chances of a “solution from within” seem increasingly unlikely. In fact, it is ONLY because I believe there are things unseen at play here, that I believe there is a chance of success.
And here is where I have to get “granular” on my knowledge.
You see that AR-15 up there? I am TOYING WITH THE ENEMY. Every time I put a “gun picture” on a blog post here, they jump us in some fashion, to push this blog in particular into a “perception of violence usable by the mainstream media”. Have you figured it out yet? WHY they do it? I did, a long time ago. Thankfully, I overcame the Alinsky fears. I PUSH BACK – just like I am now. But we have to be careful – as you will now see.
I have now dealt with SEVERAL attempts (not specifying the exact number) by my local FBI to entrap me in rather deviously “innocent” ways. Ways that would potentially “solve certain problems”.
Based on that, I have to say – Sundance is right – the situation is still quite nasty. And – given that I have to assume that DOJ/FBI is leaning on Sundance as hard as they are on me (whether SD knows it or not) – I am assuming the “not normal” that he is experiencing parallels my own in certain ways.
For my own safety, it’s probably time for me to state in no uncertain terms that these attempts appeared designed to put me on a SLAB with multiple gunshot wounds, had I made the slightest mistake. I’m also presuming that some “artful” cherry-picking and interpretations of my social media posting would give them a sufficiently rational explanation to wrap up not just me, but certain things I know. Certain uncomfortable things.
Hopefully many things are making sense.
Some details of how these entrapments were supposed to work are both explosive and quite slick. They are BANANA REPUBLIC. They are CARTEL. They are CRIMINAL. But yet – and here is the real shocker – they are utterly legal, moderately plausible, and very likely have a “good”, PC reason that would stand up to a politically sympathetic judge with any sorts of playable biases.
“Justified homicide.” I think that’s what they call it.
LAWFARE. This is what lawfare is. It is WARFARE against the people of this country by a treasonous faction of our government which mocks the most basic principles of truth and justice.
The cunning thing about LAWFARE is that it is a science. The INTEGRALS are beautiful. You cannot even find the criminality, unless you can put together all the communications of the conspiracy, including whispers if any, which is frankly impossible anymore, since everybody at that level of criminality knows how to hide within the law, and everybody else who wants their pension does as well. Finding the ONE PLACE in an onion of plausible reasons where ONE PERSON “lacks candor” is the best you can do.
Now think WRAY in terms of getting as many resignations as he did. Just on the MATH of what he did, I must respect what he has done.
If you study conspiracy as well as I have, since I chanced upon my new toy of the science of conspiracy theory, then you know that nearly every layer of the plot can be insulated by false objectives passing through many layers of people underneath true orders. Good reasons with bad motivations many layers away, delivering a criminal payload at the end of a long chain of twisted goods.
Think Eric Holder.
Think Robert Mueller, Michael Cohen, Stormy Daniels, and Anderson Cooper.
Think the complexity of the criminal plot in the movie Minority Report.
Now – let me ask you – who should I go to? Who can I actually TRUST? Very few people can even UNDERSTAND what I’m talking about. And half of THEM are criminals, communists, or both.
Don’t bother – I know what I’m doing. I’m trusting GOD.
As you can see above, MY response to Sundance’s post was to say “AMEN – you are right – it may be even WORSE than you know – and here is why.“
But that is not the BEST response. I was encouraged to speak my response by somebody ELSE who gave the best response. As follows:
December 30, 2018 at 1:32 am
SD posted a post on “Solutions?”
No one likes to hear the obvious solutions but I’m going to put them here.
Vote single issue: Righteous Judges.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” ~ Matthew 28:19-20
Seek the Welfare of the city
“Work to see that the city where I sent you as exiles enjoys peace and prosperity. Pray to the LORD for it. For as it prospers you will prosper.” ~ Jeremiah 29:7
Live Quiet Lives
“Aspire to lead a quiet life, to attend to your own business, and to work with your hands, as we commanded you.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 4:11 NET
Start and grow families
“Be fruitful and multiply! Fill the earth and subdue it! Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every creature that moves on the ground.” ~ Genesis 1:28
Teach your children continuously
“Listen, Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! You must love the Lord your God with your whole mind, your whole being, and all your strength. These words I am commanding you today must be kept in mind, and you must teach them to your children and speak of them as you sit in your house, as you walk along the road, as you lie down, and as you get up. You should tie them as a reminder on your forearm and fasten them as symbols on your forehead. Inscribe them on the doorframes of your houses and gates.” ~ Deuteronomy 6:4-9 NET
“Pray without ceasing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV
Give thanks and practice a life of gratitude – this is the KRYPTONITE that destroys all Leftism.
“In everything give thanks. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Faith is SUSTAINING. It gives REAL HOPE. And most importantly, it UNMASKS and THWARTS EVIL.
ACTING on faith gives you even MORE HOPE.
FAITH makes you a HAPPY REALIST.
We CANNOT stand up to the forces of leftism that have infected and perverted and politicized our legal system unless we have FAITH – faith in our cause – faith in the Constitution – faith in America – and most importantly FAITH IN GOD.
These are the foundations of a righteous civil rights movement. Why? Because these principles – these things – are BETTER THAN US, and they MAKE US BETTER.
Now – not everybody on this site believes the same things, and that is actually important. This site needs to be a little bit like America to work properly. But it is very honest about excluding those who would undermine our faith. The reason we are productive workers is that we are approved workers and we are NOT ASHAMED. We are particularly not ashamed of our faith. Whatever or Whoever that faith is in. We will not let others come in here and take our faith.
You will notice that even the non-believers in God among us, believe in America, President Trump, and the CLASSIC AMERICAN VIRTUES which were born into existence from believers in God AND (especially important) the FREEDOM to believe in God – which conversely allows people to not believe in God at all. This FREEDOM gave those believers in God the POWER of new thinking.
People endlessly debate the fine points of whether our secular Republic built by religiously inspired skeptics and revolutionaries is a “Christian nation”, a “Judeo-Christian nation”, a “secular nation” or something else.
I don’t need to know the answer to that historical question, because for me, the spiritual question is far more important, and it is answered. I utterly and deeply believe that this nation was, is, and always will be divinely inspired, and I will NEVER, EVER give up on it BECAUSE I believe in that divine inspiration.
For me, I will trust in God.
Wherever that takes me, I know I’m in good hands.
Preach it brother! So if the F-I is watching you where are we? The ones that follow and comment here.
I don’t see a problem for most posters here, beyond the normal surveillance and harassment of conservatives, which has decreased substantially since Hillary lost (basically, they are laying low).
I think if anybody was designated to take over the blog, admin, or otherwise allow access, that person would be under attack. That is one reason I keep things under my control!
I hated reading SDs “Solutions” because I believe his article is true. I have been saying for close on to a year now that I think the only solution is to reimagine the DOJ/FBI and make it a viable entity for the modern era. At least, that is how I would spin it.
I’d get some thinkers, maybe someone creative like Newt, some stakeholders, some LE types like maybe David Clarke, I don’t know. Anyway, I’d charge a Blue Ribbon Panel with “reorganizing” it which would be code for kill it. It is a Swamp Leviathan and it needs killing.
My experience on a vastly smaller scale dealing with a corrupt LE agency involved constantly replacing leadership and key positions but finding, shockingly, that what happened was despite bringing in new leaders empowered and directed to change the organization what always ended up happening was the culture of the organization was stronger and the new people either adapted to the existing culture or they left.
I did some heavy business reorg reading after that and learned this is a common phenomenon. Thus, the only conclusion I can come to is to kill it which is radical and will be horribly unpopular in certain quarters, so I would do it under the guise of reinventing it to make it more responsive to modern LE requirements, yada yada yada.
The other thing I hated about reading “Solutions” was once again the absence of hope or faith in a power bigger than the Swamp, bigger than we are, who can take the best laid plans and destroy them completely.
The Deep State or the Swamp or whatever is big, deep, powerful, and seems to have all the advantages. Maybe the smart bet IS on the Deep State winning, but I have faith that we are fighting for something much bigger than all of us. So, Jesus Guide My Aim.
“My experience on a vastly smaller scale dealing with a corrupt LE agency involved constantly replacing leadership and key positions but finding, shockingly, that what happened was despite bringing in new leaders empowered and directed to change the organization what always ended up happening was the culture of the organization was stronger and the new people either adapted to the existing culture or they left.”
That’s exactly where I’m at right now.
Trying to figure out how to “blow the whistle”, and how to protect myself while doing so.
Governments at all levels currently cannot effectively investigate themselves, and whistleblower protections are difficult to navigate and woefully inadequate.
Leadership roles, often filled through appointment as political payback, provide little or no accountability to the public they serve,
Real reform is almost impossible to achieve.
Should one “drink the Kool-Aid” and reap the benefits of public employment (job security, wage and benefit package, pension, etc.)?
Take the much more hazardous, difficult, and much less traveled road, which is mostly proven to be “the road to ruin”?
An easy choice for most.
A difficult choice for a few.
I have made my choice. Now I must figure out how to go about it.
Perhaps in light of the changes we believe and hope are coming shortly, you might consider ‘keeping your powder dry’ for a while?
A few (of many) things that are working against me are: time (statutes of limitations), and near total corruption at the city and state level.
That being said, timing is everything.
I welcome all advice.
Two expressions come to mind regarding the reality of your situation: “choose your battles”, and “live to fight another day”. As you say, timing is everything. Oftentimes the bad guys seemingly get away with it. Weigh your chances of success in the balance against the potential harm to yourself and those you love. This is not a cop out, but a reality check.
What Sundance said in his post about the corruptoids in DOJ “running out the clock” seems absolutely true, and is surely their strategy now. How do we not give up against that? How do we “call in for air support?” when the enemy has designed the whistleblower mechanisms to “give them the drop”?
It’s a tough battle. DISCERNMENT is very useful.
SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING. I continue to believe Q on this.
Every situation is unique, but I can see that you are in one which may bear some similarity to my own. I think the advice of michaelh to pray is extremely sound, and is your very first friend in the matter.
These situations are complex, and prayer will guide you through that complexity.
One thing I would add, in a very neutral way, is that our statutes of limitations are part of divinely inspired law, and that we should not prejudice against them by a “rush to judgment”. I have pondered this, and have come to believe that sometimes things come out more fully and rationally when blame is less of a factor. Old cases are sometimes very wobbly, and memories are tricky, evidence is thin. Cold cases are often solved by advances in technology or a new strong witness, but SOL laws are designed to leave this only for the most important cases such as murder, or freeing the falsely accused from prison.
I guess I’m saying that my thoughts are to let the “pressures” on you be good ones, and prayer helps discern those. Forgiving our enemies removes ideas of “revenge”, which are not worthy of justice. Also remember that in these situations, who is your friend and who is your enemy can be very tricky. Respecting the laws is your guide through the maze, even when those laws are used against you with lawfare. Maybe ESPECIALLY when there is lawfare.
We want good government. What leads us there? How can we remove corruption honestly? Think those good thoughts long and hard, and with God’s help, a solution will appear.
I will pray for you. If you hang out here, others will pray for you. Praying means we will think about your situation, and God will help us help you, too.
The best judgements come down from the courts of Heaven.
Learning to bring your case before these courts is not for the faint of heart, but maximizes the effectiveness of any legwork we do as guided by the Holy Spirit.
I highly recommend making the effort to learn how to do this. Search scriptures for places where God is referred to as Judge for starters. Then ask Holy Spirit to teach you how to pray. Invite the Lord Jesus Christ to intercede as you partner with Him as the chief Advocate.
I certainly wouldn’t leave the CIA out of the cleansing—perhaps the most corrupt of all the agencies and departments!!!
The CIA needs to just die. They have never worked for us, but always for the cabal. JFK said they needed to be broken up into 1,000 pieces. If it were me, I’d send every one of them to Gitmo. Military intelligence can do the real job that the CIA doesn’t do.
I am starting to think that the CIA was how FDR’s communist embeds created a beachhead in our government.
The CFR needed an “action arm” (what Col. Proutty calls “the Secret Team”) to carry out their globalist goals around the world and if needed, here at home. An operation agency (not intelligence gathering agency which was the guise put forth to gain approval), to protect the interests of multinational corporations and influence political regimes and outcomes across the globe. Above the law, not accountable to any real oversight, with an undisclosed budget which could be supplemented through drug and weapons running!!!
Great post, Sylvia. I am praying that “the big reorg” is what is going to happen. Mulvaney the redesigner seems poised to redesign. The rats are getting nervous.
I will continue to have faith! AMEN!
SD has put up another article, entitled:
“Sequencing the Resistance Process Through Likely Legislative Action – Tools: Cohen, Mueller, Horowitz…”
This article lays out SDs thoughts on what is coming beginning next week and continuing through the first quarter, all the ways the Commies in the House have already laid their traps and made their plans. They are unendingly cunning, resourceful, and they always win. We might as well surrender. Game over. I think it is a good clear vision of what is heading our way. Where I have to depart ways with SD is there is nothing guaranteeing that this is what will happen or how it could go down. I believe there are things going on that we can’t see, and shouldn’t see because they are secret, that will serve to unend their plans. But I guess we’ll see…
Which is more reliable in their predictions – SD or Q ?
i think predictions themselves, no matter who makes them, are flawed–because the components are flawed and can be unpredictable–humans.
So i don’t put much stock into who’s more reliable…I can say, the sun will rise tomorrow, and be the most reliable “predicter” out there…lol but it’s not worth much.
i think we have to look more to motive of prediction…Q seems to point towards wanting us to learn the truth…what does SD point to?
very perceptive..SD is psy-ops
Asked sincerely, how is Sundance different from Drudge or Coulter, when you look at the big picture?
Not much. They are all like this
And, pulling the wool over everyone’s eyes, the RAMS take the lead, despite their sheepish, albeit RAMbunctious drive 🙂
And, playing over the stadium sound system is the cheer, “You Ain’t Seen Mutton Yet”…
SD was pretty much right about the 2015 GOP primary splitter strategy and about Trayvon Martin and Mike Brown.
Yes he was. Sundance was RIGHT until he was WRONG. And why was he WRONG? Why did the roadmap fall apart? Because WE bombed the roadmap into oblivion.
This is a KEY FACT which is mirrored in science in interesting ways, where observation itself can destroy plans, but observation and change of action DEFINITELY destroys plans.
Q is very smart and talks about this. CONTROL.
WE BOMBED THE ROADMAP.
Wonder why the enemy is after us?
I say let SD keep sneaking out THEIR roadmaps, and let US keep designing the plans to bomb them into oblivion.
And we will do it with INFORMATION. We will BOMB THEM in the information universe.
Let me be sure I understand you…
Are you saying Sundance exposes the leftist/deep state/globalist schemes and common sense conservative/patriots/ taxpayers/discerning Christians stand/speak/vote against these people and their schemes/hoaxes/etc.?
SD dismisses the possibility of the reality of Q, so he is bereft of the hope that we have. We’ll all know soon enough. Either Trump (we) wins or (((THEY))) win, but ultimately there is a ‘sell by date’ on all that started the day that Donald Trump rode down the escalator.
Q screws up Sundance’s calculations. It is best that Sundance ignore Q. In my humble opinion.
I’m stating to see how this all works out. Patton cannot win if he relies on the atom bomb to solve his problems.
Let Sundance be Sundance! 😀
G Combs has some great insight in this thread; Second page of comments from above link, scroll towards the bottom.
Several replies by G Combs; always well thought-out, and well-sourced, as is her exemplary style.
(NOTE: did not want to link comments as per WM; comments are on the “LONG” side for “copy/paste”.
I just don’t think sd understands what William Barr actually represents to POTUS. Implied in that piece is that he thinks Pres Trump is stupid. Without disrespect to you. Wolf, my opinion is that is a load of nonsense.
To me, the hardest issue to deal with are all the corrupt judges. Personnel within the Justice Dept can be re-engineered.
I am completely convinced the military is not going to let the communists take over the government. So next week, the dirty stuff starts
I don’t think SD understands….
Somehow, SD has lost all faith in our President. In everything he’s written in the last few months, there is the underlying implication that Trump is stupid. That is where he has lost me entirely.
President Trump is dealing with a behemoth of corruption, the rough beast of Yeat’s poem. It has had its way with America for a century. I believe you are correct about the most difficult issue being corrupt judges; the law is the framework under which we all should be protected, and we are not. If the law is against us, what recourse have we got?
This is why I believe the first two years of Trump’s presidency have appeared as they have. His main task has been to confirm judges. Without honest judges in place, how can any justice be done? If, for example, he attempted to clean house in the DOJ without the judges, the people he was getting rid of would turn to the courts to overturn his decisions. And they would have won.
I also agree that the military won’t allow our country to fall to communism. The military is the heart of our country and all our freedoms. The E.O. allowing for civilians to be tried by tribunals must be part of the ultimate plan, because nothing else explains why it was written in the first place. What else would be the point? And Graham’s questioning of Kavanaugh about the subject confirms it.
I can’t wait for the “dirty stuff.”
Thanks Aubergine…that is where I am at right now. I am highly irritated by all this. Second-guessing the President is just not in my thought process….I am going to push back very, very hard. I apologize in advance when I offend some of you.
This is WAR. It is multi-channel. It is multi-level. It is multi-scenario.
I agree that “they” will not allow a communist victory. Will they use nukes in Europe? Unknown. Will they invade at Normandy? Unknown. Everything FLIPS depending on things we don’t know.
Sundance does what Sundance does best, and what the enemy fears – he spies out their plans under their own best-case-scenarios calculations our own worst-case-scenario calculations. This is a GOOD thing.
Sundance CANNOT TRUST THE PLAN. So I say let Sundance be Sundance.
Not everybody can or should solve problems on the Treehouse. Sundance is doing God’s work – figuring out what the Devil’s plans look like. People who can’t take the demoralizing work in that kitchen need to go somewhere else in the house, and that is why I have this room!
A room that the enemy hates just as much! 😀 Albeit for very different reasons! 😉
That’s my view also. Let Sundance be Sundance and don’t shoot the messenger.
What he writes appears to be true. The country is in a very bad vise. Corruption and cover up is a self sustaining beast. His ‘job’ isn’t to guide readers as to how they choose to deal with the facts. That would be like a cult.
Why the purge of good people, no clue? Why allow so many nasty people to bark and bite at others?
Those questions may not ever be answered.
We need the truth about the situation. The more dire, the harder we pray that some intervention happens whether by the Divine or divinely inspired. I’ll take either!
I attended a cyber-security conference (professional development) a while back. One of the speakers had impressive credentials, however I was far more impressed with the content of her presentation. She presented a lot of content and information on hybrid warfare and how bad the situation is for the U.S. right now and how our capabilities are not keeping up with yesterday’s news or the present reality. Many examples hiding in plain sight. But she also presented lots of good news, plenty on capabilities that were under development and soon to be released – and she was only presenting the unregulated declass stuff 😉
Understanding the hybrid warfare models really helped bridge some of the gaps, but I still saw problems with the approach. Cyberwarfare is in reality spiritual warfare applied to a different domain. Hybrid warfare models are impressive but neglect the spiritual warfare realities.
After the conference I reached out to her to ask her opinions on this. She agreed completely and was already writing her next book address the gap. More telling to me, was that she related circumstances in her professional life coming in direct contact with spiritual darkness and people using their position and workplace politics to destroy her. Very eye-opening.
In information warfare, PsyOps is only part of the equation. There are so many other types of information that need to be controlled, but what stuck out to me was the highest level of information warfare (or lowest and most foundational, depending on who drew the chart) was the methodological information priority. This included worldview, methodology, the culture of thinking, the concept and completeness of how fundamental information was managed. The long and short was: If you can get a person’s worldview, you can control the person – it is the slowest form of information warfare but it is the least reversible. On the other hand, for those resisting information warfare, knowing the truth and having a strong basis in logic and the nature of reality makes people extraordinarily resistant, even to PsyOps, and these people with highly resilient worldviews are much more likely to act on their own initiative against an offensive.
In this context I find Christ’s words to be very timely: “…make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” ~ Matthew 28:19 NET
The best wisdom of man always points us back to what God has already revealed.
(One interesting side note: Economic warfare is also classified as a type of information warfare. Trump is leveraging this to the hilt and I think even we don’t give him enough credit on this front. OWS was all concerned about the “1%”, but who are the 1% really? D’s, virtually all of them. Big donor D’s at that. The few that aren’t D’s are L’s or never-Trumpers. Among many other things, Trump is starving the Beast of it’s lifeblood – boatloads of cheap money. Don’t think this won’t be at play in 2020.)
I think I might have said it before, but it bears repeating; I don’t really get offended 🙂
I’m reminded of an early Q post where we are warned that we must be ready to comfort family and friends when the world suddenly turns upside down.
A- You have clearly stated what I am thinking (again!) – thank you for this! I also can’t wait for it to all come out and unfold. I just hope those not yet awake can handle it. I know I am ready!
“The E.O. allowing for civilians to be tried by tribunals must be part of the ultimate plan, because nothing else explains why it was written in the first place. What else would be the point?”
Pressure, negotiating position, psy-op, making them scared…
When panicking, people make mistakes.
When a secretive organization (i.e.the DS) comes under pressure, and fears their comms are monitored, their inherent lack of trust in each other comes to the fore. No conspirator can trust another. Who will break first?
You can read about the mathematics of the Prisoner’s Dilemma.
They’ve been putting the pressure on us. Mr. Trump is in the process of turning the tables.
I just don’t think it’s a bluff.
I think the President wrote it with the intent to use it.
He works hard to keep his promises. And he did say, directly to her face, that he would put Hillary in jail.
Only one way she gets tried for her crimes. Military tribunal.
I think what SD and everyone else is forgetting is that we are in a shutdown. The democrats can’t do anything until they are sworn in, which means they must capitulate. DJT could have other things in mind. Notice in his tweets that he has twice said this could go on for a long time. That gets my spidey senses going big time.
I am 100% with you. That is why I say this House thing is Kavanaugh hearings on steroids. House of Commies is going to be the White Hats’ biggest crisis/opportunity ever. It is very clear that we have some kind of strategy. But OMG – what the heck is it?
“It is very clear that we have some kind of strategy. But OMG – what the heck is it?”
Could this be it?:
Law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges at every level, and whether elected or not elected, respond to politics A/K/A reality.
The reality (for example) is that Americans hate the 4th Amendment when it does not apply to them specifically; it is a “technicality.” In response to reality, the 4th Amendment has been gamed into virtual non-existence both on the street and in the courtroom.
The reality is that any and every “crisis” formulated by government is accepted uncritically by the populace. The current one is the “opioid crisis.”
Because the populace is certain that the law enforcement response to each “crisis” is justified in the interests of public safety and health, no accounting is popularly demanded to determine the actual extent of the crisis, the benefit of each incremental step of yet more law enforcement, or the actual cost of the law enforcement.
By cost I include the corresponding criminalization of ordinary Americans, the expansion of government power into the personal lives of citizens, the erosion of constitutional rights, and the acceptance of corruption in the name of public safety.
It is the acceptance of every day corruption, and the everyday degradation of constitutional rights, which has created a widespread disdainful arrogance.
And the beauty part for the arrogant is what has become the easy defense: are YOU in favor of [insert terrible, horrible situation here]? In other words, shut up.
What I am suggesting is that even more fundamental to the suggested “solutions” of institutional corruption is the nearly unanimous but UNWITTING cultural approval of messaging which leads to the corruption.
The constant crisis messaging creates the demand for more law enforcement with its attendant money-making schemes, propaganda organizations, shaming tactics, virtue signaling and encouragement of throwing the first stone. And then on to the next “crisis” leaving behind the entrenched government apparatus of the last crisis in place to “protect” us.
The general population has sent its own responding message loud and clear: do whatever you need to do to combat this terrible, horrible [insert terrible, horrible situation here]. That is the message government hopes for.
And so, with a license to do whatever needs to be done, they do whatever they want to do.
It’s why we cannot accept the gradual diminution of POTUS by conservative opinion leaders. This is going to be a long struggle..probably going past the Trump presidency
btw..sundance is getting hammered on twitter like he is dead weight.
Great piece Tona.
The most fundamental thing we need IS faith, as W says.
And after that is trust in Trump. At this moment, unwavering support.
It is confusing why any non-leftist, seeing what is at stake, would diminish Trump in any way. All it can accomplish is bad.
Excellent summation here by Tonawanda. Fits in well with the overall theme of W’s post:
In God We Trust.
Interesting to me is the underlying exposure of SD’s current thinking and gaslighting / Eeyore’ing.
Get ready for larger battle plans to become apparent, IMO. See Linda’s post above. Think branching – enemy strategy – roadmap – lots of possibilities. Sundance is seeing a future we need to see. WHY? To destroy it.
Tona is seeing a huge problem with the information leviathan which is being used to destroy its own corruption. Even our information nukes will need dealing with when we’re done using them in WIWI. Our people are already thinking about this problem.
Nuclear popcorn. Get ready.
Sundance needs to run his calculations at Q = 0. IMPORTANT.
I can understand and accept this, but certainly those who also follow Q have a clearer picture and thus an advantage. The CTH people who summarily dismiss Q are in a sense one dimensional.
Well said Towanda. Our fundamental problem is that the system of government bequeathed to us by the Founding Fathers is predicated on good citizens.
Studying ethics long ago, I recall the dilemma of whether to punish of a man who is widely thought to be guilty of a heinous crime, but is in fact innocent. Punishing this man would deter others because of the widespread belief in his guilt, and so would be good for society as a whole. Nevertheless, it is profoundly immoral to punish an innocent man. How many of our leaders, if they alone knew of the man’s innocence, would forego the punishment and the adoration that accompanies it?
Reblogged this on RedLegLeader Blog.
I usually post only briefly. Please, indulge me.
As I often told my dear wife over the years, “Sundance seems to be a genius, but I don’t trust the Tree House.” The look of it is simply too-too peachy keen. The Bard, the flickering Prayer Candle, every item of the stock wholesomeness of pre-WW II America up on display. But let’s put aside the site’s slight tinge of overworked phoniness. SD’s prose is what really matters to a writer like me, and I will argue his writing style proves he is either several people or an advanced schizophrenic of some previously unknown order.
Here is my argument… Do you remember SD’s original Presidential election run-up prose? I later defended it in the comment threads, but my point remains: the harsh, semi-illiterate, car-crashing sentences were amazingly effective in getting me excited about what would otherwise seem like minor political minutiae, but they were also startlingly unique to my reading experience. When I say “unique,” I mean that such prose is not to be discovered even in the farthest-out reaches of International Modernism’s wackiest avante-guard literature, or in the drug-fueled stream of consciousness of Beatnik junkies, or in the psychedelic song lyrics of LSD-inspired hippies.
Then, OVERNIGHT, after the election when Sundance became a Thing and other blogs started trying to out him as Mark Bradman and laugh to death his prose style, suddenly SD began authoring long flowing literate and even mellifluous essays without any old-style syntactic howlers in his rolling lines. Now again I must turn to a lifetime of extensive reading in the literature of many nations, to substantiate my point: THE STYLISTIC SWING WAS TOO DRASTIC TO BE REAL. There is simply no example in my knowledge of a prose style changing so absolutely and so fast. The evolution of SD’s prose is unexampled in world literature. Period.
Bottom line: I quit the Tree House for all the same reasons often ventilated here. I hear SD is now down on Trump and keeps making sweeping attacks on Q and gets upset when the narrative refuses to bend to his predictions. And, even so, the prose just keeps getting sharper and sharper, doesn’t it?
So, my take is, Sundance is either several writers or he is a mentally-ill genius working his way now across an endless tightrope strung taut under the psychic circus tent of his enormous ego.
Thank you for your kind attention.
I too have speculated that SD is more than one writer, based on exactly the same indicia you noted in your post.
Herb—your analysis is important in that you were/are cognizant of the construction changes in writing style!
I hadn’t thought of it like that. I always thought SD was having some personal issues and some corrupt people got to him and laid out what he could post and what he couldn’t
He got an editor.
Also, whatever he is, Sundance is a patriot, and he is not mentally ill.
We are all overcome with grief or despair at times. It might look like mental illness to others because of the raw emotion, but it is just a function of human caring and feeling.
Sundance hears the criticisms and he responds. One response was to get an editor. Good for him. It shows his intelligence.
Sundance is a beautiful mind. I leave it at that.
If he got an editor, that person does not know how to use semicolons.
Neither do I, not that I’m bragging. Lol.
You won the thread, TheseTruths! Way cool! 😎
Oh that is so funny!
A long time ago semicolons receded into irrelevance. Sad; but true.
I love to listen to the old time British radio, like Peter Wimsey. Another time entirely.
I wish out dialogue were Socratic dialogue, but alas not even close.
Tonawand, I know I made a joke, but I’m right with you on this. And Wimsey forever, along with Jane Austen and all the great British writers.
Read Anthony Trollope, for instance, to see Human Nature.
Communists are required to attack Dead White Men to undermine and try to destroy the very concept of humanity.
Dead White Men have overwhelmingly, if not exclusively (though very close to exclusively) beautifully described human nature.
The attack on white men is the attack on human nature.
The bizarre motives in attacking white men is a reflection on the confused hysterical motives of the attackers. Confused thinking inevitably leads to the dreary leftist thinking of destruction, the bizarre but psychologically satisfying prelude to utopia.
British literature stands alone in describing human nature.
After you get through A.T., try Angela Thirkell. Lots of fun.
Tonawand, don’t forget British women writers. I think Jane Austen may have been the greatest novelist of all time, and she had an amazing ability to delineate human nature on a little piece of ivory, as she said, with which she worked with so fine a brush. Read what Sir Walter Scott said about her, think it was in his review of Emma.
I have noticed the change in SD’s writings as well… and I often wondered if there was actually more than one person writing his/her/their blogs! Especially when he would shoot over to his good samaritan side, working/volunteering during the hurricane disasters! That is the SD I loved to read! Strong on faith, a very strong belief in God…and not afraid to say so! I emailed SD once and asked if there was a group of writers working the CTH and maybe even some of Andrew’s original writers who worked at Breitbart before Andrew’s death… No answer.
But I must say I was completely turned off to SD because of his arrogance. The site used hard researched comments for info for SD’s so-called predictions and rarely was credit given where credit was earned. SD kept everyone in line and herded them into a direction he/she/they needed research info on.
I do not believe SD is a genius. I believe he uses people to his/her/their advantage. To tell you the truth, I actually believed at one point that SD worked in DC, in Congress…
I never read that earlier “illiterate” SD, so I find this analysis very interesting. Thank you.
@herbork: Thank you for your observations. I wasn’t there at the beginning of the Trayvon Martin period, for example, and can’t speak to differering writing styles. I do know that six months to a year ago I noticed that the improper use of semicolons became rampant in his writing. (They are not interchangeable with commas, and they do not provide gravitas to the writing.) In my experience over there, there was frequent use of the word “geopolitical” and the phrase “transparently obvious,” among others.
Adapting AI? (Artificial “Intelligence”)
Yo, yo, ray… Earlier this year I got cast in a movie and was negotiating online with the Screen Actor’s Guild. Writers like me develop an ear for the sound even of written voices, so when I asked the online consultant if she was a robot, the link went blank, then I was told she was busy elsewhere, and then given a brand-new woman’s name to dialogue with. True story.
After which election?
His writing style was crap in 2017, so I presume you mean 2018 (by which time I had stopped paying much attention).
From what I saw before then his essays have never been “flowing literate and even mellifluous” in the slightest; when he drops a polysyllabic word salad of a sentence into the middle of a paragraph for no other reason that I can see than to try to impress people with his vocabulary (it would work better if he would use the words correctly), my eyes roll and I have to struggle to find the will to continue reading. And when I do, I invariably find that he either never really states his point (expecting the reader to infer it) or it turns out to be trivial compared to the amount of prose it took him to get there.
But again, I’ve read nothing of his since the election of 2018 (not 2016, 2018) so maybe there has been a very recent change.
When I first read that comment you reposted, I just knew … KNEW … that you would use it for a quiet rant. He/she is correct, as are you, but we have a serious problem even in the grass roots. My wife and I are serious grassroots and have been since Liberty Belle’s rally in Seattle. My wife was involved in our local GOP and our tea party until about a year ago. Now it’s just the tea party, with light contact with the GOP.
What happened? A covert agent in the GOP came out into open attack mode after assembling a little cadre of sycophants inside the party. Lo info plagues everywhere and little GOP county parties are no different. Cutting to the chase, by the time this witch was done, we had lost a state senate race that had been GOP for many years. A long-time GOP donor actually was so captivated by the revolt rhetoric that she threatened the candidate to get no campaign help from her “team” unless the candidate repudiated my wife’s team. He refused and he lost a photo-finish race.
The fight is not party – the fight is getalongs versus the return-to-roots. Wife and I saw a mini version of what DJT was enduring right here in our little corner of the world. The template was obvious and in a burst of goodnews, observers could also see it. Eyes are being opened and the saboteurs victory is turning out to be Pyrrhic.
But we’ve lost two years fighting an insurgency instead of building the grassroots into a winning GOP establishment of tea partiers and libertarians. We almost had it (flipping the WA state legislature) but it is now further away than before we started.
It’s a long war, and it is not for the faint-of-heart or the couch-kick-back crowd. Only a warrior force will win.
pgroup you have good observations and insights here. Especially this: “Only a warrior force will win..”
The battle of which you speak has been going on for decades. The “insurgency” is not new. Vote fraud in your state, despite the Secretary’s assertions to the contrary, is very real and it is embedded within the WSRP and its conventions and caucuses. (Yes, speaking from first hand experience.)
I can’t figure out what senate seat was a photo finish! In some of those long held GOP seats, you have what used to be called a RINO…what from 2007 – 2012 was often referred to as “not a liberty candidate,” and whom SD might refer to as the state version of GOPe.
You infer you became active post Liberty Belle rally but now have little to do with the local GOP. Ever been to a district convention? State convention? Ever noticed how many PCOs/delegates are attending their first district/state event? Come in inspired by a candidate or an idea…and gone within two, at most 4 years when they learn principled grassroots are not welcome in KCGOP, WSRP, etc., no matter how many chairs they stack, doorbells they ring, ‘phone calls they make, envelopes they lick.
I voted a straight R ticket (where possible…some of the races were L vs D) this year for the first time in my life because My President Asked Me To Do So.
Thank you for your response. We (wife and self) were and still are active tea partiers. She was an elected PCO from 2011 on and still is. From 2012 to 2018 she was a district leader or deputy.
She is now none of those except PCO. We will see how it goes. The squeaker election was the 26th dist senate race. Marty was basically blackmailed and refused to give in so he lost by 102 votes. We learned about six months into the GOP that they were RIONs but they were better than the outright commies. No GOP anywhere is tea party majority, and is never likely to be.
Read the GOP national platform, the state platform (of any state), the county platform (of any county). Compare the behavior of the members (both voters and officeholders and elected reps) with any of those platforms and you will see the problem. If all GOP members followed the rules and bylaws and the platform, then the GOP would be tea party and libertarian. That’s what my wife quietly tried to do – just get the members to read and follow the bylaws.
It provoked a war inside the district because it threatened the social club thinking where speakers preach to the amen corner and nobody does any work until election season; then they wonder why it’s so hard to win. Currently, my wife is reassessing where her skills will be most effective at GETTING CONSERVATIVES ELECTED.
The war continues. God our Father told us that the human heart is filled with evil and that it is work to keep it clean and pure. Same is true with political parties and blogs.
Maybe with Young Americans for Liberty…they have had a lot of success in various states with their door knocking strategy for specific candidates and focusing on ISSUES not PARTY. I have this second hand from a great proponent/admirer of them.
Wow! Mrs pgroup ended up a DL…well, now I know what district, it tells me what county, and that tells me a lot. Lots of good peeps down there. Helped train a lot of them in 2012.
Yup, know about the rules, the bylaws, etc. Worked hard on the 2012 challenge (503 unlawful delegates as I recall) to the RNC. Many hours, many affidavits, many pages). WSRP, led by KCGOP, stole those delegates. We had a plan, we had the people to bring a challenge on the floor in Tacoma, and corruption and self interest won the day. Thus prompting the national challenge.
This seems appropriate here
and more fromn Bards
SD didn’t mention what I think is one of the biggest obstacle, in regards to the mass denial of corruption in DC. by a majority of Americans, THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA, including MAIN STREAM SOCIAL MEDIA, who’s every effort is to keep us in the dark. With that reality, I really don’t foresee a situation where the brainwashed will see the light, before it’s too late. I can’t see the Media changing until their masters, the Deep State are taken down.
Therefore my solution, to borrow SD’s words, is, “The corrupt system has to be overwhelmed; shocked into a reset status.” And unfortunately it’s going to take the most radical of options, the help of the military, and of course, tribunals. As our great President said before he was elected, “This election is our last chance.”
I do not believe we need to clean house… I believe our houses are beyond repair! They need to be torn down and rebuilt! The CIA and the FBI need to be dissolved and completely rebuilt with stronger laws to keep them in check and maybe even merge the FBI into the regular law enforcement system. As it is, I cannot see either branch purged because there will always be rotting elements left behind that start the decay process again… and maybe even quicker the second time around! I would even rename the new branches and only rehire those who have clean slates and clearances! Extream? Yes, but greatly needed in my book.
Got me Linda!! I got feed back on the word that it was spelled wrong so I quickly added Exstream!! Misspelled again… 😛
I wasn’t going to post just one word again, damage done, so I left it… I have been having a few brain farts of the “extreme” kind lately! 😛
Extremely gaseous, huh? 🙂
Something like that! 😉
Something’s missing, something’s missing, something’s missing…. Lets see now. SD says “….”OK, so we understand the problem, but what is the solution”?..
It’s a very valid question. However, it is also a question that is based on an incorrect assumption. Unfortunately, too few people ‘do‘ understand the scale of the problem(s). Until a significant number of more people understand the core issue(s), any discussion of a solution is essentially futile.”
Hrmmm.. talks solutions and does not talk Declas.
Then Sundance goes along talking about the need for external pressure to fix the institutions and how it is futile to try to fix them from with in.
Needs external pressure to fix the problems but doesn’t talk about the kind of external pressure Declas can bring about.
Sundance also picks up talking about Law Warfare and how no one can be convicted.. or was that above? Anyway hasn’t time to check, off to work soon.
Add (to Law Warfare/No Convictions (because as Sundance would have you believe there are no real investigations or what are real have been effectively choked off.
Let’s not talk about the court of public opinion. It’s clearly powerless right?
Broken record keeps playing back “Fill the Place Holders”
Not finished, but clearly out of time 🙁 Have a good day 🙂
During his tenure, Øbama politicized and weaponized EVERY agency of government and abused every power of his office.
List of Øbama administration abuses of power and lawbreaking – http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2011/06/president-barack-obamas-complete-list.html
Timeline of Sedition and Treason: http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2017/12/a-timeline-of-treason-how-fbi.html
AFTER leaving office – Ø began to encourage sedition, treason, harrassment and violence against opponents of his leftist/marxist/Islamist totalitarian agenda.
639 documented Democrat media and politician approved/incited acts of violence and harassment against Trump/family/staff/supporters and other conservatives:
THEN THERE WAS ØBASTARD’S ILLEGAL SPYING aka Warrantless Surveillance aka false or manufactured premises for FISA Warrants.
The FISA warrant was merely window-dressing. Truth was Øbama was surveilling Trump for a year at least, probably more.
Ø surveilled/spied on anyone and everyone he wanted!
The Press – https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2013/05/20/shredding-the-constitution-obamas-attack-on-the-associated-press/?utm_term=.132867cdc4a7
Congress – https://www.redstate.com/streiff/2017/03/05/flashback.-remember-obama-used-nsa-spy-congress/
Obama’s Illegal warrantless surveillance was not limited to the Trump campaign, or the press, or congress.
There was a dramatic rise in warrantless surveillance during the O years – so much that it alarmed even the leftist ACLU:
This graph shows (again) what I call the “DOJ welcoming in of Eric Holder and Obama”. SD is very smart on his identification of 2006 as a pivotal year to make sure Obama gets in in 2008.
Yes, he hit that one right on the money for sure.
Notice the huge uptick in 2009.
That was when the Tea Party was organizing…or trying to…and becoming very vocal as a group.
That’s when the IRS, OSHA, and other government agency attacks on Conservatives began.
Obama changed the law twice (2013 & 2017) to make it easier to conduct warrantless data gathering:
85% of Obama’s warrantless surveillance searches were illegal: P 82 – https://www.dni.gov/files/documents/icotr/51117/2016_Cert_FISC_Memo_Opin_Order_Apr_2017.pdf
I’m posting all this for your reference resources.
I wish I had copied the text of Wictor’s twitter series list of Øbama’s illegalities which was very enlightening….but the (insert epithets) Twitter Jack suspended Wictor. Maybe he will post it sometime on Quod Verum.
It’s hard enough to imagine the blind coming around to see the truth. But can you imagine trying to convince them, that what has been going on is, in fact, TREASONOUS/SEDITION.
People in general probably don’t associate treason/sedition as a thing that is against them personally..we’ve given over our trust & power to the “leaders”. Country seems almost like an abstract thing to many.
I’ve come to view Zero and his minions and his puppet masters as an antichrist entity. Not saying he is THE antichrist but operates as what I envision it would be doing…so it becomes highly personal to me.
Their actions and motives as well as methods are directly aimed at destroying each of us who value freedom of everything including our spiritual beliefs. Maybe we need to keep telling others that their very own bubble is going to pop if they don’t at least look into the facts?
Ø wasn’t intelligent and industrious enough to do all that he did on his own.
Remember this guy? https://www.uschamber.com/about/leadership Tom Donohue was one of the forces behind the Ø administration actions.
Ø’s chief of staff was also a manipulator. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denis_McDonough
$0r0$ also had a hand stirring the Obama administration pot.
Always hope—I’m a glass is half full type of guy!
I would think PDJT knows he is working against the clock to bring about the change necessary. He knows the power of the enemy—that they can shut down his economic program of transitioning from Wall St. to Main St. at any moment. They can, at the drop of a hat, cause a worldwide economic depression negating whatever recovery gains have been achieved. They did so in the 20s, and will do it again if necessary in order to control the direction of the masses. They will cause suffering, but they themselves will not suffer.
They are witnessing nationalism on the rise the world over (which is anathema to the globalists), and they ultimately control the means to make it wither on the vine! They control the deck of cards—they are the dealers and we are the players against the house.
We are enjoying a somewhat temporary reprieve through DJT, but how long will they allow it to continue?
My hope reigns supreme, but not in the powers of this world!!!

Pete, your whole comment has so much wisdom and perception in it, I hope everyone will read all of it thoughtfully and prayerfully and take it to heart.
TY, Zoe—you humble me in the Lord!

I see the glass as TOO DAMN BIG!
So much wonderful insight, Pete. TY.
Anybody able to post a song ‘People Get Ready’ by Brownie McGhee and Sonny Terry ? My devise doesn’t allow me, but find it an inspiring song regarding FAITH
Thank you WM. The exact version I had in mind 😉
Part of what SD seems to be so hopeless about is that Mueller is sucking up all the info that relates to corruption, therefore the good guys can’t use it as long as muh Russia is still going on. I just saw this anon post that makes a lot of sense as far as going around this roadblock and getting it done. If it’s too small for you to read, click on the page and it will zoom in.
Military Intelligence has been investigating on FBI’s behalf:
Hmmm. I didn’t know wordpress would post the whole page. But if you right click and open it in a new page then zoom in, you’ll be able to read it. It’s very interesting.
Well, I don’t want to be too negative, and I am cautiously hopeful, but an article I saw with the title something like, “Is the Investigation the Cover-up?” just haunts me.
I’m not as smart as the anons, but with all due respect, this summary is too simplistic. One major piece that is missing is any activity related to treasonous activities against the US by US citizens.
Actually, this anon was talking about that very thing. The FBI/DOJ have been incapable of investigating this. The military could very well be doing the investigating to be used in military tribunals. He included the law that allows this to happen.
Linda—this keeps taking me back to Lindsey Graham’s questioning of Kavanaugh in the hearings re: military courts and civilians, etc.
Tribunals are separate from the investigations. They are trials of the people charged with crimes based on the investigations. PDJT signed an executive order authorizing military tribunals that takes effect on Tuesday. (And isn’t it interesting that Court TV is going to be back on the air January 1). FBI/DOJ has indeed been incapable of investigating these crimes; many of their top officials were involved.
I will admit the anon’s reference to unconstitutional collection methods that “had to be” used caused me to look skeptically at his entire summary. While I agree we cannot win a street fight while observing Marques of Queensbury rules, we need to strengthen, not diminish, the constitution as part of this process. If indeed US citizens engaged in treason, the proper procedure is to designate them as enemy combatants, after which they lose their protections under the constitution. This is precisely what military tribunals are supposed to do. And if the methods employed are justified under the laws of war, they are not unconstitutional. There is supposed to be demarcation; military tribunals are not supposed to retroactively bless unconstitutional law enforcement methods.
Yes, but according to those parts of the law the anon quoted, the use of military intelligence IS legal in certain circumstances. Also, something I just read is that the US Coast Guard has also been considered a law enforcement agency since they were moved to Homeland Security and could be used in this circumstance. So there are several things to think about. That doesn’t mean this is what is happening. I’m just saying that if Mueller is being a roadblock, POTUS and Q Team will have already found a way to counter him.
Maybe that’s part of why PDJT was adamant that we find a way to keep paying the Coast Guard during the shutdown.
Again, the information you provided and your insights are really appreciated by me. I think this is interesting stuff and worth thinking over. Thanks again.
Linda, so grateful to you for posting this. Really interesting.
“No one calls for justice, nor does any plead for truth. They trust in empty words and speak lies; they conceive evil and bring forth iniquity. …Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they have not known, and there is no justice in their ways; they have made themselves crooked paths; whoever takes that way shall not know peace.” (Isaiah 59: 4, 7-8)
“These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world!” (John 16: 33; NKJV)
“You are of God, little children, and have overcome them [the false spirits of Antichrist], because He who is in you is greater than he [Lucifer] who is in the world. They are of the world. Therefore they speak as of the world, and the world hears them. We are of God. He who knows God hears us; he who is not of God does not hear us. By this we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of error.” (1John 4: 4–6; NKJV)
Not preaching or evangelizing!!! Just sharing some Scripture that reflects the times and the enemy we face and their ways!
Scripture is filled with powerful things to take on evil, defeat it, and know truth, but one has to be exposed to a sufficient amount of complex evil to see it. This is why the globo-nazis create “sugar world of nice PC thought police” so people cannot see how their machine works. Very crafty stuff.
Yes, very deceptive and this-world crafty, aren’t they Wolfie!!!
Honestly, *I* had no clue how deceptive and crafty until I parachuted into this fight with no turning back!
Just listened to Senator Graham’s press conference. Regarding DACA: NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!! What the hell does Trump NOT understand about this??? We voted him into office BECAUSE HE SAID DEPORT THEM ALL. I live in a state with a large population of illegals. I could care less if their parents brought them here. SEND. THEM. HOME. They can stand in line like everyone else if they want to be here legally.
He understands. Getting a court ruling in his favor is the problem.
TinFoil—feel your pain, just don’t know what is politically expedient. Don’t know the real numbers of DACA recipients? They are allowed to stay in the country as long as they are free of any criminal history, but must renew their deferred deportation status every two years. Does not give them citizenship status, but does allow them to apply for a drivers license, work permit, and enroll in college (guess we pay for that!!). Unless they go through the proper procedure by immigration law to become a citizen, they are never granted citizenship status, unless the rules are changed between now and then.
Honestly, I worry more about chain-migration and birth-right citizenship—but whatever the case, it is a freaking mess. I don’t want illegal aliens just as much as you, but I just don’t know what is politically expedient to achieve some sort of control of the situation! It’s above my current pay grade!!! 😳😳
I find it interesting that nobody seems to care how long the DACA aliens have known that they were illegal. If a DACA alien is 20 today and has been here for 15-16 years, when and how that person discovered he/she is NOT a citizen seems important to me. If he/she knew at age 10-12, then what did the person do with that information?
I bet 99.9% did nothing but continue to act like everything was fine. None of those have any claim to remain here under any circumstances. The only ones that I would consider keeping are the ones who tried to become legal, either by leaving and applying from abroad or by surrendering to the AG and asking for a parole. This crap of giving DACA relief to everyone in the class without consideration of personal behavior is insulting.
OOPS! (Meant to reply)
Didn’t really mean to “like” this comment as it desparages President Trump.
TRUST “The Plan”, friend….. TRUST “The Plan”.
Agreed. So pissed off here. We already did a large-ass amnesty 30 years ago. Give us the damn wall.
Great post that gets to a key point. The left is literally Satanic, in that its world view is based on an inversion of reality and is fundamentally dishonest. But they believe it. They aren’t “materialists” in the sense that they reject the spiritual world – they believe in their perversions and seek mastery over this world with a religious fervor. They hide their metaphysics behind a worldly guise, but they believe, and you can’t beat that without better beliefs of your own.
This is a spiritual conflict. Wage it accordingly.
I hope I don’t offend anyone for what I’m about to say and if I do; please accept my apology as it is not my intent.
I read SD “solutions” yesterday or maybe it was last night, I read so much yesterday and last night that I’m not sure on the time! I found after reading SD thread on solutions; I came away depressed,scared and feeling there was no hope. Then I came to this site and slowly after reading all the threads AND comments the sadness and loss of hope started to dissipate. By the time I was finished reading everything on this site I was hopeful again at that point I had decided to not go to the other site again.
I realize that in life truth hurts and can be depressing but that doesn’t mean I have to subject myself to anything that brings me down. Life in and of itself can be hard enough and allowing anything or anyone to bring you down only makes it harder. So I’ve made the decision to remove OT from my life.
To ALL of you here on this site; do you realize how much of an inspiration you are? All of you have inspired me and given me so much insight and hope! I look forward to this site everyday and look forward to all that you teach and all of the inspiration and love that is here!
This is the hard part; what I’ve noticed on this particular thread after reading all the comments, depression and fear starting to set in again like it did when I read SD “solutions”. Please don’t be offended by what I just said! But, you know how psy ops is talked about here; could it be that the article “solutions” is a psy op? I’ve never felt this way on this site ever! But in my observation I’m seeing hopelessness here. I hope SD “solutions” wasn’t a psy op.
Let me explain a little bit about myself. I work a lot of hours and I don’t have a lot of time to do the research that a lot of you on here do and I look forward to coming here every night when I get off work. All of you are imo very intelligent people and are very resourceful and I look forward to your insight and opinions. To me YOU are the best. Please don’t lose hope and continue to give your insight and inspiration.
I have had a lot of loss in my life from losing my son, to my mother and my twin and a very good friend but one thing that has gotten me through all of it, is my faith in God. He taught me to put one foot forward and not look back and to live every moment as best as I can but most importantly trust in him. I feel God has led me to this site because of the people that are here that are fully inspirational and loving. Please don’t lose sight of the inspiration you are to a lot of people.
p.s. sorry so long,
Love it! Great post, and I fully agree that people should avoid going “OT” if they find it demoralizing. I will say this much – I will not allow THIS site to become demoralizing. EVER!
Thank You Wolfemoon, I hope I didn’t offend you or anyone here. I think all of you are great and I love it here! With God we can move Mountains,
Yeah, but we’d better look after Marica, she seems pretty depressed lately.
Steve, lol. What if we had a million Maricas–oh, never mind, the Creator who made her probably thinks one is just fine.
He’d be mistaken, then.
Well, a million Maricas would certainly more than counter a million Obamas. Just meant she is uniquely wonderful. Lol.
No argument there.
…the bigger question is, will she ever see this? and if she does will she blush?
And if she does, will she tell us? Doubtful. Hi, Marica.
…And cheer the heck up, already!!
Thank you for sharing your heart with us here.
Until recently, I had been a regular reader “over there.” But somewhere last spring or summer, SDs tone began to change. It was slight at first and I ignored it. I kept telling myself I was wrong, I was reading too much into things. Eventually of course it became obvious that things had changed. Many who still post over there have commented on it, as well.
I don’t know what happened, or why. I’ve got a million theories but that’s all. I do know that I have to guard myself carefully if I go over there to read because just like you described I can come away with all hope lost. And just like you when I spend time here reading I feel encouraged and heartened and reinvigorated. I know which frame of mind I prefer to have and which frame of mind is more useful to our cause.
It’s not my place to give you advice; I can only tell you I’m trying to find my way. For right now I have chosen to read over there on a limited basis, and with great care. I almost never read the comments, and limit myself to certain articles SD posts. I now steel myself to have my critical thinking skills engaged before reading over there just as if I were reading something in the WaPo or NYT. I question everything I read OT.
If your time is limited, it may work better for you to skip OT and save your peace of mind. Anything important is going to show up here one way or another.
Thank You Sylvia, your first paragraph is exactly what happened to me. I appreciate what you’ve said and I think I’ll start putting on an armor of steel. Great advice!😉 Thank You and God Bless You☺️
Coootz, trust in the Lord will get us through anything, even times of discouragement, which we all have from time to time. Thank you for your comments and we’re all here for each other, that’s what I think.
Wonderful post, deplorablebcootz. I totally agree with you about this site being an inspiration. I can’t speak for anyone else, but personally I don’t feel depressed about the huge hill we have to climb to take down the cabal/NWO/corrupticrats/etc. These people have been in control for over 100 years, if not longer. I’ve never thought it was going to be easy or that there wouldn’t be roadblocks thrown in the way. It’s a very complex problem, because the cabal has wormed their way into every single government and private institution. They have all the money and control the financial system as well as most of the people in congress and government.
But the Q Team keeps stressing that they have it all and that they have a Plan which has been ongoing for a long time. So that is a big plus for our side. But the biggest plus is that we trust in God and pray for His deliverance. It wasn’t an accident that Donald Trump got elected. Millions of Christians were praying. I believe from the bottom of my heart that God selected Donald Trump for “such a time as this.” I believe that God has protected him and is enabling him for this work. As the apostle John said, “If God be for us, who can be against us.” So I don’t feel depressed or beaten down at all. I may at times feel really angry at the tactics of the other side. But in the end, God wins.
Thank You Linda, you are an inspiration God BlessYou!
Great thoughts, Linda!!!!!!!!
Any here watch the movie Amazing Grace?
It’s a rendition of the story of William Wilberforce’s 40 years fighting to end slavery.
I learned a lot from his struggles, his movement’s methods, alliances, and eventual success.
Wilberforce very interesting, wonderful example of a Christian putting his faith into practice.
Wilberforce and Bonhoeffer are my major inspirations. No matter how dark the night looks.
We are a Clapham Circle, friends each dedicating our efforts to a cause greater than ourselves.
One would be hard pressed to find two Europeans of their caliber for inspiration.
Sadhu Sundar Singh and Amy Carmichael in India (Amy originally from Ireland and Sundar doing missionary work in Nepal) are two others that have instructed my heart in doing “a long obediance in the same direction” well, as the saying goes.
… two other Europeans …
To be fair, I’m also a fan of Alexis de Tocqueville, Václav Havel, and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn… but they’re each in entirely separate categories.
