Dear MAGA: Open Topic 20190109

This special TOO MUCH WINNING WEDNESDAY open thread is VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA world.

Say what you want, comment on what other people said, comment on people’s comments.  Keep it civil.  Treehouse rules, but expect lots of QAnon.


Remember – your greatest gift to President Trump is FIVE WORDS:

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU

However, awesome Chuck and Nancy memes will be accepted graciously.


See the January 1st daily thread for the rules of the road, which are few but important.


Today’s thread is dedicated to those goofy communists running the Democrat Party. May they never stop circling the drain at the bottom of their May Pole that goes STRAIGHT TO CHINA.

Yes, all those flags for a couple of dems was pretty suspicious.

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep. They thought 57 stars wouldn’t fit on just one flag 🙂

NUTHA-VYOO

6 flags?
GREAT ADVENTURE!!

Tonawanda

Wonder how that plays with their fellow Demokkkrats?

Cuppa Covfefe

Great meme and caption!
Speaking of aliens, illegal and otherwise, has anyone really checked on Piglosi’s background? Maybe she’s “hosting” some alien background herself?comment image

Sylvia Avery

I have about laughed myself sick at the memes. But then, within seconds of seeing Chuck and Nancy I knew there were going to be some great ones because, well, they looked wrong. Immediately. No time for scrutinizing and analyzing, the first impression was a strong visual WHAT’S WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE?
Can’t help it, TV is a visual medium. They should have had a better set up than standing like a couple of stiffs, the lighting wasn’t good, the camera angle wasn’t good, their make up wasn’t good; they looked awkward and phony and mad. And THAT is before they started speaking.

bflyjesusgrl

Plus she was talking like a Stepford wive while Schumer was nod bobbing his head, so weird.

Sylvia Avery

Stepford wife! Yes! I was struck right away by how subdued she was. Ususally she is gesticulating wildly and laughing inappropriately and stammering. Tonight it was Robot Nancy.

Cuppa Covfefe

I think this explains Schumer’s bobblenead look 🙂comment image

NYGuy54

I know I kept cracking up…very funny stuff

Cuppa Covfefe

They look a little too cheerful here, Sylvia, I think they could use some shovel therapy 🙂

This seems right

Gudthots

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

Wonderful T*3!!! The Book of Isaiah is full of truths that reveal the undercurrents of today!

Gudthots

Truly a book one could stay in for a lifetime.

TheseTruths

The Chuck and Nancy memes are hilarious, but the real pic of them reveals the terrible strain Pres. Trump is subjecting them to (merely by doing his job and keeping his promises). They have been thrown on their heels, they aren’t sure what happened, they can’t predict what will come next, and they don’t know what to do. The stress on their faces is profound.
This is much better than Pres. Trump bulldozing ahead and declaring a national emergency. He is toying with the Dems like a cat with a mouse, and he is exposing their treachery for the world to see. Now they are being given one more chance to act in the interest of the people. It was a stroke of genius to place them in this position.

wheatietoo

Yeah…it’s a “Manufactured Crisis” alright.
But it was the Dems who manufactured it!comment image

wheatietoo

Hah! love it.

Is that the next caravan behind them?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

In fairness (sigh, I guess I gotta be fair to those asshats), they’re referring to the shutdown, not the border.
But your question still stands!

wheatietoo

But the shutdown…is *because of* the border crisis.
And I thought that Chuck mentioned “the border” right before he called it a “manufactured crisis”.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It IS of their making!
AND if your memory is correct…then I was overly charitable (I have many faults, but that’s not one I am well known for).

wheatietoo

I don’t think I’m the only one who remembers it that way…judging from all the tweets, memes and commentary that I’ve seen.
They played a clip on Fox, of some woman on CNN (I think it was CNN) who said:
“This is what Trump does. He lays a trap and the Dems fall for it, every time!”
Haaaa.
😆

Sylvia Avery

Oh yes, he definitely touched ever so lightly on the world migration thing that has been drummed up. I bet there are people in Europe who are hearing that message resonate like a tuning fork.

michaelh

I wish Mitch McConnell were there on camera with them, squirming under all the attention.

Johnny

Every dog has his day.

NYGuy54

Mitch still plays his role. sunsetdance is wrong in that regard. He’s not a total waste.

Sylvia Avery

I agree. I was hoping for a declaration tonight, but I am NOT disappointed. In fact, I’m pretty darned delighted. I thought PDJT gave us a logical reason for what he is doing and why, and there was dignity and emotion and love of country and love for Americans that all came through loud and clear.
And just like that, once again I am reminded why he is the President and I am not. He is one heck of a lot smarter with much greater judgment than I have. I am humbled and proud to have this man representing me and my country to the rest of the world.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Perfect!
The perfect troll!
He had almost everyone expecting a state of emergency, and instead, he laid out both factual and very emotional appeals on this issue.
One. Last. Chance.
And Schmuck and Nasty gave a speech (I haven’t heard it) that has gone so viral with memes, it’s clear they’re a laughingstock.
They just dropped huge steaming piles and jumped around, laughing maniacally, on national TV!!!
Oh, yes, the most glorious night we’ve had in a LOOOOOONG time!!!

TheseTruths

Yes, the Left was hoping for something extreme like a state of emergency that would make the news all about (orange man bad) Pres. Trump, and instead they got a reasonable, factual appeal to the people with the ball in the Dems’ court and the pressure on Chuck and Nancy. Glorious!

Marica

It was Steve!! A FANTASTIC NITE!! For all Trumps teams!! on every FRONT!! He will unite us all!! Eeyores, Q teams, tick tock boom! We will All WIN! Patriots ALL!!

wheatietoo

I like this meme that an Anon made for all the Eeyores:comment image

Pigpens all! LOL!

holley100

That’s GREAT!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I tend to loathe emotional appeals. But allowing this to continue is effing EVIL, and that makes even me willing to let them have it with all six barrels of the minigun.

Continued prayers tonight:
For our POTUS and that his victory will be sealed
For the Democrats, Schumer and Pelosi, that they will see the light and surrender to the best interests of the nation over partisan politics
That people will see through the lies and deception, and turn against them
That the wicked schemes of the evil does will fall back upon them
That the despite the wicked desires to divide us, that the American people will be united in faith and support of justice as never before
That the American people will turn their face to God and Thank him wholeheartedly for his gracious unmerited favor upon our nation
For protection for our Secretary of State Mike Pompeo as he travels into hostile lands, serving as our great peacemaker
Prayer for protection of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis
* From those who seek to destroy him
* Guide him in wisdom to appoint RIGHTEOUS JUDGES who will judge according to God’s justice
* Prayers of thanksgiving and continued strength in upholding righteousness against the evil workers of corruption in Broward County
Prayer for RBG:
* Prayers that she will turn to Christ and repent before her time on earth runs out
* Prayers that if this is God’s will and her time, that he will take her quickly

Gudthots

AMEN.

Marica

Michael!! you have the most beautiful prayers!! thank you! Thanks for adding your prayers to this most Special Tree!!

Sylvia Avery

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Thank you.

NYGuy54

DeSantis did not waste any time in laying the hammer down. did he?
I hope you folks know that Jewish funerals are always with the casket closed. Just sayin’ for RBG.

PeteC

Thanks—and good point NY54!!! 🙃

Marica

TT! I read all of your post today– You were dead to rights EXACTLY on the money! all the tweets saying Pompeo told the King of Jordan that there would be Big news–just trolling to make sure as many people tuned in…
“the stress on their faces’ FOR sure!
THANKS FOR BEING A REAL SOLID GROUNDING VOICE HERE!! You are a jewel!!

TheseTruths

Thanks for the kind words. I love your positive posts and learn so much from everyone here!

Gudthots

Wolf, about that shadowbanning.
PM has a thought.

Gudthots

Makes perfect sense.

rayzorbak

Whatever works best…..
And YOU are doing a GREAT job Wolf.

NYGuy54

well PM lives by what he says. He started following my little twitter account and sent me a nice note

NYGuy54

They definitely closed you off to me. I suspect your DMs are being used to throttle you off to your friends.

NYGuy54

Well it seems to be everyone I have ever DM’d is now throttled. I can only conclude they are deliberately isolating us.

Gudthots

I hope you join our “writer’s guild” and create an article on this for us here on the Q Tree — and beyond!

NYGuy54

Thanks TTT. of course if there is interest

Hegel’s fallacy is extremely common these days, but not many people are aware that the reasoning is fallacious.
A short education worth passing on:
The Hegelian Fallacy
http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Clear_Thinking/Informal_Fallacies/Hegelian_Fallacy/hegelian_fallacy.html
This fallacy is committed when it is assumed that the middle position between two extremes must be correct simply because it is the middle position. This sort of “reasoning” has the following form:
Position A and B are two extreme positions.
C is a position that rests in the middle between A and B.
Therefore C is the correct position.
This line of “reasoning” is fallacious because it does not follow that a position is correct just because it lies in the middle of two extremes. This is shown by the following example. Suppose that a person is selling his computer. He wants to sell it for the current market value, which is $800 and someone offers him $1 for it. It would hardly follow that $400.50 is the proper price.
This fallacy draws its power from the fact that a moderate or middle position is often the correct one. For example, a moderate amount of exercise is better than too much exercise or too little exercise. However, this is not simply because it lies in the middle ground between two extremes. It is because too much exercise is harmful and too little exercise is all but useless. The basic idea behind many cases in which moderation is correct is that the extremes are typically “too much” and “not enough” and the middle position is “enough.” In such cases the middle position is correct almost by definition.
It should be kept in mind that while uncritically assuming that the middle position must be correct because it is the middle position is poor reasoning it does not follow that accepting a middle position is always fallacious. As was just mentioned, many times a moderate position is correct. However, the claim that the moderate or middle position is correct must be supported by legitimate reasoning.

michaelh

A practical use case:
You are talking with someone who identifies as a moderate. They believe their position is good because they listen to all perspectives, and try to find truth between all the different positions.
The reality however is that they are not seeking singular truth, but fallaciously mixing and matching positions to suit their taste, and their policy prescriptions will never yield good or optimal results.
Furthermore, they are vulnerable to manipulation. All that is necessary is for someone who wants to shift the moderate’s position is to proposition an extreme and radical position far beyond what the moderate might find acceptable, and watch as the moderate re-situates his views toward a median position to accommodate the shifting perception of the playing field. The moderate is not grounded in any way and is useful for his “independent” thinking that can be manipulated toward desired ends.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

A similar tactic: You’re an advisor, you’re paid to come up with options.
In order to get your boss to pick the one you want, you FIRST list a bunch of absurd ones. “Nuke ’em,” and “give them what they want” then put your option at the bottom. The boss is likely to jump on the first non-ridiculous thing he sees, and it’s what you actually wanted in the first place.

michaelh

When discussing politics with liberals and leftists, there is a recurring common problem. It seems that during the discourse, facts can mean nothing, and they cannot be swayed by reason, no matter how unassailable or undeniable the facts are.
This is such a common problem that there are many conservative sayings and proverbs that all make the same basic point:
* Dan Bongino – “Liberals are immune to facts”
* The Mamet Principle – Liberal turned conservative David Mamet famously said: “In order to continue advancing their illogical arguments modern liberals have to pretend not to know things…”
* Liberals “feel”, Conservatives “think”
* Liberal reporters ask “How do you feel about” not “What do you think about”
* If you are young and you aren’t liberal, you have no heart. If you are old and you aren’t conservative, you have no head.
* Ronald Reagan – “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so.”
* Krauthammer’s Law – To understand the workings of American politics, you have to understand this fundamental law: Conservatives think liberals are stupid. Liberals think conservatives are evil.” Charles Krauthammer, 2002.
A simple anthropology of an individual human person can help explain this: Each person has a center of reason (head), a center of emotion (heart), and a center of action (hands). Healthy persons have a balance of all three. But many people just think about head and heart, and see head as uncaring Mr. Spock versus the heart (“Just listen to your heart – that’s what I do” – Napoleon Dynamite) and so they have this dualistic inner tension between being thinking versus feeling, and they feel like the thinking person is just mean. Healthy persons by contrast work through the cognitive dissonance over time and bring the head, heart, and hands into alignment and unity.
Think about this: If your entire worldview with all of its presuppositions are grounded on emotional ideas and reasoning, things that you FEEL must be true even though facts and logic say otherwise, when someone present FACTS, or presents difficult QUESTIONS, or asks for clarifying DEFINITIONS (the Columbo tactic – ask “What do you mean by?”), when someone says something that gets close to threatening to call out your entire sense of identity and your worldview as being imagined, when in Václav Havel’s words “one person cries out, ‘the emperor is naked!’ – when a single person breaks the rules of the game, thus exposing it as a game – ” don’t you think that the liberal will be threatened?
Everything they “KNOW” is built upon what they FEEL, not on the FACTS or REALITY.
The typical liberal mindset:
* What matters most is FEELING good about oneself, respecting all people, while spreading peace and happiness through the world.
* FACTS mean COGNITIVE DISSONANCE.
* COGNITIVE DISSONANCE feels UNCOMFORTABLE.
* CONSERVATIVES keep presenting FACTS.
* CONSERVATIVES are doing this to make me UNCOMFORTABLE.
* CONSERVATIVES are MEAN. CONSERVATIVES are EVIL.
* (Insert Dualistic Social Anthropology – Liberals are Good and Moral, Conservatives are Mean and Evil)
* Therefore liberals have no responsibility to treat MEAN EVIL CONSERVATIVES with love, peace, happiness or respect. (Apparently, conservatives aren’t “all people” who deserve “respect” once dualism and tribalism kick in.)
So to sum up, liberals FEEL their way with an immature EMOTIONAL understanding of the world, like that of a child. The are immune to FACTS b/c FEELING takes priority. If the FACTS don’t FEEL good, they reject the FACTS. If facts feel wrong, so much the worse for facts in their world.

Krauthammer 2002: I picked up on that almost 20 years before as I began to see the ridiculous left in college (University of Colorado at Boulder, a/k/a, Berkely By The Mountains, and I survived, obviously)

Potus does an “Air Q” at the 0:46 mark!
I had not seen that before.

NebraskaFilly

WADR, he does that with his hands beginning at the :08 mark, actually, and does it off-and-on throughout. Just using them for emphasis, IMO.

Gudthots

This interview was a couple of days ago.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again now,
Kevin Hassett looks like the happiest member of Team Trump.
Seriously, could he look happier?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Maybe he could cheer Marica up?

wheatietoo

I think it looks stupid for two people to crowd together like this…at one podium.
Pres Trump mentioned that we “would be hearing from” Chuck a little later.
But…he didn’t mention Nancy.
Was it the original idea for Chuck to speak by himself?
And then Nancy insisted that she should speak too?
Is that why there is a podium there with both of them both of them crowded together behind it?
Whatever the thinking was…it was a Big Fail!
comment image

wheatietoo

Yep!
And they were reading from a teleprompter.
That means they were stuck with reading whatever they prepared *before* they knew what PTrump had said.
Hah.

Tonawanda

Great insight!

NYGuy54

He played them. POTUS has an innate sense of what motivates these two.

PeteC

They should have requested a “wider” podium to balance out the visual! Is it just me, or was I hearing someone in the distant background saying —“Mpeach 45”???

stealing this

Sylvia Avery

I agree. And it is pretty obvious how dumb it looks. You’d think if this were planned they would have planned it better. They could have been seated together at a table or something. It is just looks silly crammed together cheek by jowl, so to speak.

It IS sweet. And the colors and the design are visually very pleasing to me as well as the message. Love it.

If I knew how to make it so I could copy and paste a tweet and have you see the picture so that you didn’t have to click through, I’d do it. But sorry, I don’t.

Heheh.
That one is mild compared to some I’ve seen.
For some reason, Twatter isn’t letting me on that site tonight.
It could be the new security programs that hubby downloaded earlier…twatter doesn’t like not being able to snoop on us.

Sylvia Avery

Ugh.. I get so tired of the snooping!
I just read and posted a link to a Reuters piece on new automobile technology. Our cars will be watching us and listening to us so they can mine us for data that they can sell. Just what I do not want.

Pat Frederick

my car would get to see my super cool in-my-seat dance moves and hear my extraordinary singing! (it would turn itself off promptly! lol)

A Fortiori (@AFortiori16)

This push into more and more complex vehicles is yet another form of control over us.
My newest car is ten years old, and it has 32 computers in it. I can handle the mechanical stuff, but if something computerized goes, I can’t even diagnose the problem because I don’t have the $10,000 computer/software license. And even if I could do the diagnosis, many of the part are manufactured so that they cannot be repaired. Instead they must be replaced. Oh, and you need the computer/software to introduce the new part to the rest of the system. It is maddening.
The days when cars were a great wealth transfer mechanism are gone. Folks who work with their hands can no longer buy a car from someone who wants the newest design every three years and keep the car on the road for a decade using simple tools and cheap parts. Vehicles now depend on a limited supply of circuit boards, which are all manufactured when the vehicles are manufactured. Once that supply is exhausted, so is the entire run of vehicles. Nobody is going to set up a new manufacturing line to make more boards.

holley100

And the people who repair these cars now need college degrees in automotive technology. Gone are the days of the gearheads and grease monkeys who learned how to fix an engine from their dads in the driveways.

Sylvia Avery

That is really depressing.

Tonawanda

It was very funny!

wheatietoo

The Anons noticed how the networks messed with the color tones to make Pres Trump look orange.
From the official Potus vid tweeted out…normal color:comment image
.
From one of the networks:comment image
.
CNN was even worse…they turned up the orange-tones so much it made the white stripes on the flag look yellow!
And of course, as a result, PDJT looks like he’s glowing orange.
You can see a side-by-side of the CNN footage with the normal color footage, here at this link:
https://8ch.net/qresearch/res/4675937.html#4676617
I hope that takes you right to it…it’s an mp4 video, which is tricky to post here on WP and beyond my computer skills.

GA/FL

Notice the difference in the chair heights.

wheatietoo

Yes! That’s really weird, isn’t it!
It is really noticeable on the CNN side-by-side video.
The two clips are sync’d too, so the President is the same on both clips…except for the color and the chair backs.

GA/FL

Golden State Times video shows the President’s shoulders above the chair height.
CNN was pulling some funny business, trying to make PDJT look slumped over, smaller and orange.

GA/FL

CSPAN shows chair above shoulders and orange skin tone.

GA/FL

RSBN video shows chair below shoulders and normal skin tone.

wheatietoo

I think I figured out how they did it…
Everything in the background behind PTrump is shifted upward.
The flags, the window panes…the chair back…everything.
So they must have taken footage of that shot *before* PTrump was sitting there.
Then, for his speech, they pasted the pre-recorded background behind PTrump…and shifted it upward.
There are moments in the doctored footage, where PDJT’s shoulder-line goes pixelated.
This is a definite tell!
These rotten bastages!
They will do anything to try to make him look bad.

NYGuy54

I went to 2 rallies in 2016. At the Syracuse rally, POTUS came right up to us and shook the hand of the beautiful blonde I was with (not me ..lmao). He didn’t look orange to us. I still have pics and video of him at the Rochester one.

Pat Frederick

you lucky duck!!!

PeteC

Still have the blonde?? Just askin’…!😳

NYGuy54

lol…no she and I have moved on.

A Fortiori (@AFortiori16)

I too noticed the distortion of PDJT’s face (I was watching Fox). I’m not sure how to describe it, but it appears as if that portion of the video signal used to broadcast his skin was amplified, creating a bloom and distorting the detail of his face. And yet, I could see the strands of hair clearly. I was into video as a hobby for several years. This cannot be the effect of a camera or lighting or cheap cables or even broadcast compression. Those things would usually show up in multiple places. This had to be signal processing of some sort.
I’m surprised PDJT lets them get away with this.

wheatietoo

They shrank him!
They shrank PTrump in the CNN footage.
You have to see that comparison video at the Qresearch link I posted, to see it.
It’s on an mp4 format and I don’t know how to post that here.
They shrank him and made him orange!
It’s really outrageous.

NebraskaFilly

Sorry, wheatie, but I think you are incorrect. The one showing the lower-back chair is not the real shot, from all I can find.

NebraskaFilly

Ooops – my bad – I am dead wrong – THIS is the link from the WH – the one OT is the WAPO link! You are all correct and I had it backwards! SMH – sometimes, I just want to smack myself upside the head!!! But think about that – ALL of those outlets used the manipulated video!!!! Holy crap!!!

wheatietoo

Yes.
Heheh…I just posted that to you below.

NebraskaFilly

I know it’s late but I still haven’t had a full cup of coffee! SMH – one of my biggest failings is speaking too soon / typing too soon and jumping to conclusions. I NEED PATIENCE!!! LOL

NebraskaFilly

Just to simplify – 1st is the link direct from the WH:

This is the video used by the majority of the media AND, btw, by SD!!!! OK, I think I’ve got this squared away now. Let me know if I am still off…..

wheatietoo

Yes.
Top video…not doctored, color is normal.
Second video…doctored, messed with.
They made him smaller and orange!

NebraskaFilly

Bingo! Scumbags, one and all! And the fact that SD chose to use the WAPO link? What does THAT say about SD????

NebraskaFilly

I have already posted this crap to FB – please, we need to ALL share, share, share this to as many people as possible!!!

NebraskaFilly

I have watched a few samples on YT – the one with the higher chair is the accurate video from the WH stream link posted OT, as well as Time, WAPO, PBS, CBS, CNN, etc., etc. NOT the first one.

wheatietoo

Filly, the President’s own video shows the lower chair-back.
Are you saying this is not the ‘accurate video’?

NebraskaFilly

I was wrong – sorry.

wheatietoo

Did you notice that on this one that the Pres tweeted out…it starts at the 3:15 mark?
Like the watch in the Q-drop that showed 3:15.
Heh.

NebraskaFilly

No, I didn’t – I am really obtuse about these things. I just don’t pick up on the symbolism – not sure what that says about me but I call it being simple-minded and pragmatic. LOL

NebraskaFilly

Delete that – wrong again!

wheatietoo

Filly, if you can post mp4 videos on FB…then this comparison video would be a good one to post.
It makes it crystal clear what they did:
https://8ch.net/qresearch/res/4675937.html#4676617
I don’t know how to post an mp4 formatted vid on WP, or I would post it here.

NebraskaFilly

Thanks – I followed that link and saved it on my pooter but I don’t know how to post mp4’s any more than you do! LOL – that is why I posted the 2 YT videos instead.

NebraskaFilly

Well, sad to have to say it, but OANN also used the manipulated video! SMH – now I can no longer trust them either!

wheatietoo

Maybe OANN didn’t notice the difference?
If we didn’t have PDJT’s tweeted version as a ‘control’ to compare to…we wouldn’t see the difference either.

NebraskaFilly

I used the direct link from the WH website (after I noticed that SD had used WAPO) and I do believe, once again, you are being FAR too charitable! I do not seriously believe they didn’t notice the difference……I mean, many of their talking heads are very naive and clearly new (pronunciation of names of people or countries is often incorrect) but come on…..not to notice THAT? No, sorry…..that is a bridge too far, even for me. They are still using it in their re-runs today. Grrr…..

andrew1979

if the source is a television network they cannot be trusted. pretty much across the board. even one america news unfortunately. this goes for radio a.so of cojese, but you can only “hear” their lies.

NebraskaFilly

The oh-so-skeptical side of me asks this question: might we be wrong about which video was manipulated? Watching now, the chair is the high-backed chair……I don’t want to believe that but…..I cannot be completely honest and ignore that conundrum. What to believe and what not to believe…..such a quandary, it is.

Gudthots

I fully expected this.
And therefore so did the White House.
I wonder how they will leverage this?

Mexico just made it a lot harder for Democrats to denounce border security as a racist plot against Hispanics (as if “Hispanic” were a race). Exactly as President Trump has explained, if you don’t have a border, you don’t have a nation…”

“The Democratic response to President Trump’s speech by Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi quickly got ripped apart online, as jokesters mocked the way they spoke while standing close together behind a small podium wearing scowls.
“Yikes. I like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi but they gotta work on the whole ‘not looking like villains from the next bond movie’ thing next time,” said Twitter user Dan Luke.
“Why are Chuck and Nancy every pair of white suburban parents who just witnessed you shotgun a coors light while home for break?” Twitter user Zachary Miller wrote with a screenshot of the pair.
“We trusted you with Dad’s car because we thought you could be responsible with it, but we see now you’re not ready,” Vulture writer Kathryn VanArendonk joked…”

They are relentless. They will not rest until they have invaded every single speck of space we have and every quiet place and every private zone.
“Cars are getting smarter – and while many focus on seeing the road ahead, they are also set to begin analyzing drivers and passengers.
This week at CES, the international consumer electronics show in Las Vegas, a host of startup companies are showing off inward facing cameras that watch and analyze drivers, passengers and objects in cars.
Carmakers say they will boost safety – but privacy campaigners warn they could be used to make money by analyzing every movement – even being able to track a passenger’s gaze to see what ads they are looking at, and monitor the emotions of people through their facial expressions…”

What a crock!
Well, that’s yet another reason to hang onto our older vehicles.

As long as it is your choice and not forced on you, which is what is planned. Shades of Agenda 2030!

my daughter bought a new car and was bragging about lane adjustment something or other and I said, doesn’t that scare you? nope, she loves it–she loves that the car will park for her too. i said if you don’t like to drive, why not take a cab? I love the freedom, she said. I stared at her–she didn’t even realize the irony in what she said…smh

You remember Mr. Rogers? Or if you have kids, you’ve seen Daniel Tiger? They love that cute little trolley.
* It always shows up RIGHT AWAY
* They never have to schedule their trips or wait
* They never have to hail or call the trolley to take a ride
* The trolley is always impeccably clean and cheerful – it is always free of trash, urine, filth, and vandalism
* There is never anyone else on the trolley
* There is never any crime on the trolley
* Extremely rarely does the trolley ever pick up other passengers along the way, and if it does, they are always known people, never strangers
* The trolley is never delayed as it travels
* The trolley never breaks down
* The trolley never has to contend with traffic the way automobile drivers have to practice defensive driving, deal with road hazards, and the reality of traffic collisions with injuries
* The trolley never needs fuel or maintenance
* They have no ownership or responsibility to operate or maintain the trolley
* They never have to pay to ride it
* It’s never explained how the trolley operates or how it is funded
* For all the talk about loving kids and teaching responsibility, there is nothing that teaches personal responsibility or safety about the magical fantasy trolley

I remember being 14 and setting out to get a job so I could save for a car because a car meant freedom of movement. Now there is a concerted effort worldwide to take this freedom away.
I am stunned at the advertising that implies you don’t need to pay attention to driving. I was chatting with a friend about a Liberty Mutual commercial where a guy implies his insurance company should forgive him for rear ending another driver when the driver “hit his brakes for no reason.” The first time I saw this commercial I said “you don’t know how to drive.”
It is obvious that as we teach people not to pay attention to driving in order to get them to accept these new technologies, we are going to kill and maim thousands. But eventually we will have our little computerized pods (controlled by the folks who control our computers and social media) that relieve us from the drudgery of driving.

Sylvia Avery

Yes, we are being conditioned towards that wonderful utopian day when our cars drive us and we can sit and stare at our devices or something.
Getting my first car meant adulthood, freedom, and it was fabulous! But you could get a reasonably reliable car cheap back then.
I don’t want my darned car turning into Alexa the spy. I like to have the illusion of being free, although with the cameras everywhere there really is no privacy any more, anyway, but still.

The car will be driving us, and the government will be driving the car, inevitable.
And it will start out as a CRISIS which everyone will agree is one of the worst things which could ever happen to us.

andrew1979

not to mention they can disable your car at any ti e they want. remember this is for your safety. onstar out.

A Fortiori (@AFortiori16)

And then overlay your “social score” on top of this, and you won’t be able to travel farther than you can walk without government approval.

Tonawanda

This is in our near future.
Sorry to ride this hobby horse so continuously, but when we loudly applaud for every “crisis” which is not a crisis (other than a tragic personal crisis), we are paving a way for the automobile/traffic/safety/ “crisis” which will lead us into government control over where we go, and when, and how.

Cuppa Covfefe

What the Deep State Satanic globalists want to do is seal each and every one of us into a cocoon, of their making, within their control.
Agenda 2030 (and there’s a new one coming up, 2050 or so, WEF at Davos should talk about it).
Look up “rewilding”, where they move people out of the countryside (read: flyover country) and put them in cities like infinitely compliant (dare I say “tolerant”) sardines. Stuck in the city, the proles are “allowed” to use electric vehicles with a VERY limited range, and, because they are self-driving, a very limited selection of destinations, all of which are politically correct and proofed by the elites/controllers.
I’m beginning to think that the war against diesels is not really about particulates, it’s about freedom and control. Even today’s highly sensitive diesel motors can be modified to run on just about anything, a luxury (and survival tactic) which gasoline-powered motors don’t share. My nephew had an older Mercedes Diesel that he ran on cooking oil (and other recycled oils). It always smelled like french fries when he drove by. But, he was able to run his car much more cheaply on that fuel, despite the lower energy content of cooking oil versus proper diesel…
I would be nice for people to push back on all this unnecessary complication and control. Every bit of added complexity adds to cost, and adds points of failure.
Ironic how the elite, who claim to want to help all those “poor” refugees (refauxgees), are pushing technology and devices they have no hope of ever being able to afford. Indeed, we can’t even afford them…

The technocracy of the globalists—everything metered out according to their wishes for you, or not metered out because they hate you or you don’t conform!

Sylvia Avery

This is one of the smartest posts! I know you are right. But how depressing.

Molly Pitcher

Strange that this topic came up today! Last night I was hanging out with at grandkid’s karate lesson. The instructor was casually talking with a mom…no joke..he was saying exactly these things…wouldn’t it be great to be in a cocoon-like environment where cars drove themselves, no need for us to decide where to shop, it will all be in the city hub or delivered from internet sales..the whole nine yards.
The brainwash is deep.

Sylvia Avery

Sigh. That is depressing to think there are segments of the population who wouldn’t even fight to keep the chains from being locked into place, they’d welcome it happily.

I get terrified when I have to drive on I-5 lately. people do not drive safely or with any courtesy to other drivers.its really a crapshoot if your going to die in a flaming pile up or get rear ended by the tail gater or the idiot talking on there phone. its a mad crazy world out there and I can only hope it gets better.not holding breath though.

NebraskaFilly

This has always been a problem – phones and tech devices have just added to the distractions. I remember traveling on I-95 north from Woodbridge/Dale City to Fairfax and watching women putting on their make-up, reading books, eating their breakfast, men shaving, all while commuting.

NebraskaFilly

Back in the late ’70’s and early ’80’s.

I have seen that commercial ad nauseum. What bothers me about the Liberty Mutual commercials is that they are so blatantly misleading – ANY insurance company offers a first-accident forgiveness policy – you just have to pay for it. I do understand what this guy is saying, tho – this can happen to anyone and he has an otherwise good record and paid the extra premium, then he should reap the benefits that he paid for.

I am glad I found this site. CTH banned me from posting (or even clicking the like button) after I made a sarcastic response to what I thought was an absurd post by sd. Oopsie. I still read over there. Here, I can like a comment and wow, even post a thought from time to time.
I admit my keyboard sometimes has a big mouth. At least I know my shortcomings.
Thanks, fleporeblog, for leading me over here. I enjoy reading your twitter feed and started reading your blog after you announced you were finished posting on CTH.
I see some other treepers here, too.

Thanks. I will read them. And follow them.

great comment OT about Chuck & Nancy–is this the Democrat response or a hostage tape?

Dem activists used clever rhetoric to lull GOP voters on Facebook into mid-term complacency.
The guy in the photo is Reid Hoffman, the co-founder of LinkedIn. Looks like a slob:
https://twitter.com/ArthurSchwartz/status/1082844467697278976
From the Daily Caller article:
‘One series of ads pushed the narrative that the Democratic “blue wave” was actually a “myth” and said the polls showing a Democratic advantage were “unreliable.”
‘Another series set of ads pushed a narrative that congressional Republicans were betraying “real conservatives.”
‘“Some Trump supporters see midterm losses for congressional republicans [sic] as a wake-up call to get serious on the wall,” the Democratic operatives wrote in another post.
‘Another post included a link to an article about frustrated populist Republicans and stressed the need to “send a message” because “Trump is failing us.”’

linkedin in another data trap org for tracking and recruiting run by the same cabal… any amount of mental tumbling you want to do to convince yourself how useful it is is strictly up to you.

I can’t remember when I last signed on to Linked In.
On the other hand, I know many others who think it is the successor to sliced bread.
Amazingly, for some I know, it is. They get business leads from it.

from OT
Mexico doesn’t want them either https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2019/01/mexicos_interior_minister_outlies_plans_to_secure_their_sou Mexico’s interior minister outlined plans to strengthen her own country’s porous southern border, where hundreds of illegal crossing points have been identified.
Speaking at a gathering of Mexican diplomats at the foreign ministry, Olga Sánchez Cordero said at least 10,000 migrants had entered Mexico from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala since last October, and that another U.S.-bound “caravan” from the south was expected to arrive in mid-January.
Sánchez Cordero said the government was determined to ensure that “legal and orderly” entry takes place.
As part of the new government’s migration policy, she said, anyone wanting to enter Mexico would have to provide information including reason for entry, biometric data, and an identity document.
“Those who refuse to provide identity or biometric data will not be able to enter Mexican territory.”
Mexicans being racist again…hmmm…

I checked out CTH for the first time in a while. He used to be good at breaking interesting stuff. Now he’s late and when he isn’t, it’s all eeyore. There are better analysts out there now.

I think there’s another one, IIRC libertydaily-dot-com, but I haven’t yet checked it out.
