Dear MAGA: 20190227 Open Topic

This 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.

You can say what you want, comment on what other people said, and so on.

Free Speech is practiced here. ENJOY IT. Use it or lose it.

Keep it civil. They tried to FORCE fake Orwellian civility on us. In response, we CHOOSE true civility to defend our precious FREEDOM from THEM.

Our rules began with the civility of the Old Treehouse, later to become the Wolverinian Empire, and one might say that we have RESTORED THE OLD REPUBLIC – the early high-interaction model of the Treehouse – except of course that Q discussion is not only allowed but encouraged, and speech is considerably freer in other ways. Please feel free to argue and disagree with the board owner, as nicely as possible.

Please also consider the Important Guidelines, outlined here in the January 1st open thread. Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven.

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

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU.

Also consider The Non-Amended Wheatie’s Rules:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

The rule against shooting at the nukes has ANOTHER evening off.


Today’s daily thread will be used to catch up on Q posts.

The Armor of God
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

What follows is one of the best descriptions of the communist media’s “nickeling and diming” that keeps their sad FAKE COMPETITIVENESS in play. Donald Trump Jr. just NAILS the way they…..

FAKE IT TO MAKE IT.

In my opinion, the MSM and Democrats are now nothing but a CHICOM and RUCOM (remember – the communists operate FREELY in Russia) beachhead in America. They PRETEND to be what they are, and they have pretended since Stalin landed them in our media.

The SoCom Left are fascists!
They are oppressors.
They are actively suppressing any opposing views!
This is the textbook definition of fascism.
Thanks for the great new Open Thread, Commander Wolfie!
And with Q posts, too!
😀
DiFi must have something very juicy on Murkowski.
I wonder what it could be?

wheatietoo

And that’s a great clip of Don Jr. with Tucker Carlson!
So much truth packed into those few minutes.

daughnworks247

Hehe, Wolfie, I’m thinking the Trump family didn’t mince words, whaddaya think?

phoenixRising

If Murkowski had two grey cells she would have figured out DiFi is a crook… and put leverage on HER…

Charlie

Murkowski IS the get-away driver and the commie crooks are trying to keep her mouth shut.
She was having fun with her commie buddies until the car got rolled. She wants out but nicely.

wheatietoo

Both communism and socialism, use fascism on a regular basis.
SoComs survive by the complete suppression of any opposing views.
It is standard operation procedure.
Fascism = Forced Unity.

“We will not be accepting this condition.”
No. We will not. Not ever. There are things worth dying for. (Although I hope that won’t be necessary.)

GA/FL

Remember – you can see Russia from Alaska.
Palin told us that a long time ago.
Palin has also long known – the Murkowskis are crooked as all get out!

Deplorable Patriot

Palin did not say that she could see Alaska from her house. The chick on Saturday Night Live portraying her did.

GA/FL

Whether or not Palin said it, it’s true! – On a clear day, from the far north eastern Alaskan islands, you can actually see a Russian far western island.

https://www.cntraveler.com/story/yes-you-can-actually-see-russia-from-alaska

GA/FL

To clear it up:
“The basis for the line was Governor Palin’s 11 September 2008 appearance on ABC News, her first major interview after being tapped as the vice-presidential nominee. During that appearance, interviewer Charles Gibson asked her what insight she had gained from living so close to Russia, and she responded: “They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska”:

For retribution, men will make it quick and painless. Women will take their time and torture a victim. They will plot and plan, scheme and go back again. Our CIA head, Gina Haspel, scares the heck out of me.

So…I guess these ^^pics^^ are what Q was referring to, as “originals”?

wheatietoo

I’m thinking “originals” = pics taken by Q or the Q-team.
The Anons are interested in the “checkered shirt holding phone in last pic”.
They’re studying the reflection.

Sylvia Avery

Ah, so! Thank you!

Gil

So are they from anon THERE or faked to be originals?

wheatietoo

Not fakes…no no.
Looks like those ‘originals’ were posted by another member of the Q-team, who didn’t use the proper trip code.
Sort of an ‘oops’.
But they’re travelling, in a foreign country…a communist country, that has a strangle-hold on the comms there.
I figure the Q-team is bouncing their signals through alternate comms.
Probably pretty complicated.

daughnworks247

Good point, Wheatie, that explains all the “test” posts.

daughnworks247

There were pics shown on Laura Ingraham. Ed Henry is the one who said he “got the pics from inside the hotel”. Anons noticed they were the same which were posted, thus had to come from the Q team and they were originals.
Not sure about a guy in a checked shirt. I defer.

daughnworks247

The red ginger flowers are gorgeous and exotic but the arrangement needs more filler. Too sparse.

wheatietoo

The arrangement might be ‘sparse’ for security reasons…so that it can be seen through.
😉

bflyjesusgrl

Lady Di, I swear it’s like you’re reading my mind! I’m a flower freak and was just staring at the beautiful red ginger. Zoomed in looking for Bird of Paradise, since they’re both tropical and are usually together in exotic arrangements, but no, no such luck. They definitely need to add MOAR flowers 💐 🌺 🌸

daughnworks247

IKR, I’m drooling over the flowers.

bflyjesusgrl

Oh me too. My ex used to send me exotics for bday, vday, etc., cause those were my favs. I actually planted ginger in my backyard, it never bloomed, multiplied like crazy, and was a nightmare PITA to dig up. I do have BofP in front bed and surprising to me it has more blooms in colder weather than warm. Strange for a tropical, but still beautiful😃

daughnworks247

And check out the slipcovers on the chairs, did anyone iron them?
And they’re not properly hemmed. Trip hazard.
Complete fail.
I would have rejected, but we have more women in heels at our house.

bflyjesusgrl

The best place I ever saw the tropicals was at a hotel in Guadalajara. They’re outdoor patio garden had every kind, color, and size of growing and blooming flowers. Ginger, cannas, calas, BoP, Even orchids in the ground! It was soo beautiful. Not enough humidity in Houston to grow flowers like that!

Pres Trump is staying at a different hotel…the Marriott, I think.
It was the *other* hotel where the journalists got tossed — because Kim is staying there too, and he didn’t want them there.

Here’s a screencap of that reflection of an ‘arm’:comment image
.
I can’t really make out very much there, though.

Pat Frederick

doesn’t look like a checkered shirt to me–if you look, whatever “it” is continues across the back of the dining chair…

Aubergine

Yes, I agree. I don’t think it is a person. Not sure what it is, though.

bflyjesusgrl

There’s a man leaning forward away from dining table, he’s wearing a shirt with blue/white stripes on the top half and blue/white checkers on the bottom half. His shirt is reflected onto the chair behind him through glass doors. It looks upside down in reflection?? There is a man standing on stripe/checker man’s left side facing dining room with his arm outstretched towards table. You can’t tell if anything’s in his hand because it blends into the glass and gets cut off. The idea that maybe he’s holding a phone can’t be validated because the shape at the end of the arm actually comes from the tree branches outside across the street.

sallyal

This looks to me like somebody’s back. He is leaning way over and we are seeing the backside of the chair. IMHO.

wheatietoo

Ed Henry’s pic is from the ‘other side’ of the flower vase:comment imagecomment image

A Fortiori

I’m thinking this Derek Wallbank dude conducted some surveillance on the hotel, and posted his pictures on twitter so that his co-conspirators could use them in an assassination attempt on PDJT. His story about “finding” an unguarded door doesn’t add up; someone arranged for the door to be unguarded.
NSA noticed the pictures after Wallbank posted them on twitter, identified Wallbank, and pulled the pictures off his phone. This is how the “originals” were posted. I presume NSA was also the source for Ed Henry, and that the good guys decided to make this public to let us know about the ongoing treasonous activity by the press.

A Fortiori

And there is more. After the Q drop incorporating his pictures, the guy tweets that people using his pictures should enter into licensing arrangements with Bloomberg and attribute the pictures to him. Then, after they move the dinner because of his spying, he tweets two separate comments on the new venue and table arrangements.
This guy seriously needs to be taken down a notch (if not arrested and tried in a military tribunal).

Sylvia Avery

Good exchange between Lou Dobbs and Joe deGenova last night. Joe is a believer that AG Barr is going to clean up the mess. His opinions of that Liddle Schitt and Chris Wray were interesting, also.

bflyjesusgrl

He called Wray a game show host, LOL 😂. Wray needs to be replaced, he doesn’t have what it takes to straighten out the dept. Bias training will not fix the rot, it must be cut out.

Aubergine

I think he’s a game show host a la Bob Barker.
If you ever watched ole Bob, he ran The Price is Right like a congenial drill sergeant, if there is such a thing! Smiled the whole time, but man, he was the boss. Who could dislike him? But it was HIS show, and there was no doubt about it.
I’m with you on this one, Wolf. Wray is doing the job, just not the way some people want to see it done.

Sylvia Avery

LOL, yeah he went off on Wray! I wish I could recall who said it, now, but I heard someone within the last several days talk about Wray and feeling he had been going along quietly doing a good job of cleaning house and setting things to rights at the FBI.
That has sure not been my impression, so it kind of stopped me in my tracks to hear this opinion, esp. because whoever it was that said this was a pretty serious and reasonable person.
BUT Joe deG is hard to beat, so not knowing anything else I’d have to say I have more confidence in Joe’s opinion.

Define “peace”.
Is peace the absence of war/violence, or is peace the presence of freedom and human flourishing?
If you just want “peace” as in non-violence then put up the white flag early and often.
Too bad projecting weakness doesn’t work!

bflyjesusgrl

I’m on team POTUS! He’s made more progress in 2 short years than the screaming hyena morons have in 60!!

President Trump will deliver a series of home runs while in Vietnam. The press of course will minimize them and never repeat the wins in subsequent reports, nor compile the wins from the Vietnam visit.
President Trump will have wins with NK, which the media and politicos will criticize.
Amazing, President Trump has succeeded greatly on the Korean Peninsula issues where no other President in ~65 has. If it takes a few years to resolve the nuke issue, personally don’t care. The problem is getting resolved. What is not to like?
Looking forward to Barr unloading on criminals in DOJ, FBI, IC, Hildabeast and her crew, hussein and his crew… Some of that, or much of that may have to wait until Mueller submits his report. Barr is probably pushing for the Mueller report.

BREAKING NEWS: Indian military confirm two of their military jets have been shot down by Pakistani forces in its airspace – RT
10:34 PM – 26 Feb 2019

wheatietoo

This is not good.
But does…”its airspace”…mean Pakistani airspace, or Indian airspace?

wheatietoo

Ah…they’ve been fighting over that area for a long time.
The ChiComs have been getting buddy-buddy with Pakistan lately, too.

bflyjesusgrl

Oh yeah, Chicoms have been pouring money into Pakistan, also extending OBOR project.

Kalbo

Yep. An old conflict. Not going to get resolved in my lifetime. IMHO, sort of like the endless ME wars between themselves.
ChiComs always looking for leverage.
President Trump canceling or at least delaying the billion we gave Pakistan each year. Pushing Pakistan to assist with Taliban.
Also President Trump embracing India pisses the Pakistanis off.
I’m good with all of President Trump’s actions there. All part of his global MAGA strategy.

Cuppa Covfefe

Somehow I smell deep state invovlement here – either a distraction, or an attempt at leverage via proxy…

CIA involvement is always a possibility. As evil as they are, a probability?

wheatietoo

I remember an issue of the National Geographic, decades ago…I think back in the 80’s…that showed some Japanese young people who were much taller than their parents.
These were Japanese who worked on their cattle farms.
They had grown up on a diet that was rich in beef and dairy products.
At that time, beef and dairy products were still very very expensive.
Only the more affluent could afford them…unless they worked on the cattle farms.
Seeing the short Viet Namese people in these clips from Hanoi brought back memories of that NatGeo issue.
I think there are other examples of ‘tallness’ in people who have a diet rich in beef & dairy…like the Massai tribe in Africa, as well as other tribes who have had cattle for generations.
Maybe this is why the SoComs like Occasional Cortex want to get rid of cows?
They want to make us weaker and shorter?

wheatietoo

Yes, and my own family tree is a pretty good example.
I come from farming families on both sides…and each generation was taller than their parents.
Lot’s of beef and dairy — my grandmother even made beef breakfast sausage.
Burgers, meatloaf, steak and big glasses of milk with every meal…refills for desert, even with ice cream.
Pork and chicken were for special occasions.
Heheh.

Gail Combs

SEE: Role of red meat in the diet for children and adolescents
The article is short but worth reading since it talks about brain development of the fetus and mom’s nutrition

…. SUMMARY
Meat plays a central role in the diet, providing a significant contribution to the intakes of 10 key nutrients: energy, protein, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, iron and zinc. In young children, an over-dependence on milk may put young children at increased risk of poor iron status, owing to its displacement of iron-rich or iron-enhancing foods from the diet. This risk becomes nonsignificant when moderate to high amounts of iron-rich or iron-enhancing foods (e.g. meat and fruit, respectively) are also consumed. A study performed on infants in the UK has shown that the addition of meat powder to a weaning food has a marked enhancing effect on the absorption of iron, (38) which reinforces the fact that lean red meat is not only an appropriate weaning food but should be considered an essential food during the critical stages of brain development Dietary diversification involves promotion of a diet with a wider variety of naturally iron-containing foods, especially red meat, poultry and fish. These foods have a high content of highly bioavailable haem iron, and thus are most appropriate for infants and children on weaning. Despite their widespread availability, foods from this group are not always used or may be diluted before use (e.g. meat is rich in iron but meat broth is not). Given the information above, however, it is reasonable to argue that meat is a core food in the diet for children and adolescents because it provides significant amounts of essential micronutrients.

Gail Combs

Of Interest, especially for those of us who are older: L-carnitine

….L-carnitine is used for conditions of the heart and blood vessels including heart-related chest pain, congestive heart failure (CHF), heart complications of a disease called diphtheria, heart attack, leg pain caused by circulation problems (intermittent claudication), and high cholesterol.
Some people use L-carnitine for muscle disorders associated with certain AIDS medications, difficulty fathering a child (male infertility), a brain development disorder called Rett syndrome, anorexia, chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, overactive thyroid, attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), leg ulcers, Lyme disease, and to improve athletic performance and endurance.
The body can convert L-carnitine to other amino acids called acetyl-L-carnitine and propionyl-L-carnitine. But, no one knows whether the benefits of carnitines are interchangeable. Until more is known, don’t substitute one form of carnitine for another.
How does it work?
L-carnitine helps the body produce energy. It is important for heart and brain function, muscle movement, and many other body processes.
https://www.webmd.com/vitamins/ai/ingredientmono-1026/l-carnitine

2017 — More indepth info: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/265761.php
2018 — “People with depression have low blood levels of a substance called acetyl-L-carnitine, according to a Stanford University School of Medicine….”

Species and muscle differences in L-carnitine levels in skeletal muscles based on a new simple assay.

Author information
Abstract
We have adapted the enzymatic method [Biochemical and Biophysical Research Communications 176 (3) (1991) 1617] for the safe and rapid assay of L-carnitine (L-CA) in skeletal muscle using a microplate reader. The concentration of L-CA in fresh semitendinosus muscle from
broiler chicken, 0.69
pig, 1.09
beef cattle, 1.86
deer, 3.57 to 4.57
horse 4.95
goat muscle 11.36
and μmol/g wet weight, respectively. The animals which had higher concentration of L-CA, also had the highest amounts of myoglobin as an index to the redness of the muscle. Furthermore, we investigated this relationship between white muscle, M. pectoralis profundus, and red muscle, M. soleus, in laying hens. The L-CA and myoglobin concentration in red muscle were significantly higher than those in white muscle (p<0.01). These findings suggest that L-CA concentration in muscle is related to oxygen metabolism and to myofiber types.

Much of the ‘red meat bad-cholesterol’ hysteria was propagated by one Dr. Ancel Keyes back in the 1950-1960’s. This led to the low-fat diet…which also coincides with the explosion of heart disease and diabetes and the current ‘obesity’ epidemic. The Ancel Keyes episode back then is similar to the climate change hysteria of today; i.e. deniers of Keyes’ theory of red meat leads=high cholesterol were shunned and denied grants, and ostracized from participating in various forums, boondoggles paid for by Big Sugar/Carb cartels.
Human body processes fat and protein much differently that carbs and sugars. I try to educate my family on this by showing a very simple comparison; next time at the grocery store, go to the dairy section and compare the nutrition label of a half and half product, low fat vs regular. The low fat has little fat and gobs of carbs and sugars….and they can’t figure out why obesity and diabetes are at a all time high.
I haven’t touched low fat products for many years…fat fills you up, therefore eat less! Carbs/sugars do the opposite.

Very interesting!

Steve in Lewes

My father died at age 34 from a heart attack when I was 10. For most of my life I was led to believe it was arteriosclerosis (clogged arteries/high cholesterol); it was a failed heart valve damaged when as a young 10 yo he came down with rheumatic fever. So all my life I followed the low fat diet because that’s what the all knowing medical field told me I had to due because of family history. I was not obese, weighed the same at 50 as I did from HS/College 185. I was active, exercised 5 days per week. Had a yearly physical, bam ! had to have quadruple bypass surgery. Ain’t that a kick in the ass!
Many years ago, I was seeing my son who is a personal trainer. He told me to get off some of the meds I was taking especially cholesterol meds….bad ju-ju ! He told me about a couple books to read by Gary Taubes; “Good Calories, Bad calories”. and another. Also. a Nina Teicholz; “The BIg Fat Surprise”.
Well, I stopped all carbs, sugar, pasta, breads, processed schitt and went eggs, bacon, red meat chicken fish and veggies like asparagus, spinach, kale, carrots (yuke), peas, limas. My cholesterol went way down, stopped taking my cholesterol meds, and my weight has been around 166-167 lbs since about 3 months after my diet change.
A new documentary is coming out this year with Taubes, Teicholz, and others on the subject. A link to
the trailer is below. Like others have done, paste the link but make sure you remove the leading *.

Ty! Very enlightening and makes a lot of sense.

Gail, I put a comment in this thread as a supplement to yours. Anthropological research on the topic is very interesting.

Sylvia Avery

Most definitely. I think the average height of a North Korean is like 5’4″. Poor diets, malnutrition. Very sad.

Kalbo

Yes, South Koreans much taller. Generally from the same stock. Nutritious diets the difference.
With President Trump working the Korean Peninsula issues, the NKs have a great future. Famines will be a nightmare of their past. Economies thrive.
Actually believe President Trump will pull this off. Also believe Chairman wants to realize “real” greatness with his people, peace, economic prosperity…
Many things I am hopeful for. Quite optimistic for the Korean Peninsula.
Have not always been a glass is half full, on the sunrise side of the mountain kind of guy. I am now.
President Trump has shown me (us?) the light and the way ahead.

para59r

Good idea. We should infiltrate online cook books and recipes with conservative menu’s for growing strong healthy conservative teens and young adults. Then slip in menus with liberals in mind that sport soy and other non meat and non dairy products. Hopefully they won’t catch on for years and years and we can grow why they shrink. 😎

wheatietoo

Sounds like a good plan! 😆

Gail Combs

Soy and GRAIN products.

wheatietoo

Yep, sounds like the perfect diet for being passive and easily led.

Gail Combs

AND depressed. See my L-carnitine post above.

I kept feeding my son Ovaltine, hoping for 6’3″ but again, 6’2″.
Every man in the family is 6’2″. Every woman is 5’8″. And the men…. it’s weird – same shirt size, shoe size, coat size, makes family traveling so much easier.
We’re in beef/dairy country.
Sometimes, I know the name of the cow I had for dinner.

Charlie

Bessie? Never get friendly with the victim. LOL….
You don’t name the chickens too? Laughing.

daughnworks247

Charlie, I have a great story about chickens, for a later day. I couldn’t eat the ones I raised.

Tonawanda

Look forward to the chicken story!

daughnworks247

Oh Tonawanda, I was so naive, so metro as opposed to country smart. I had visions of grandeur.

Tonawanda

I have already read, watched and loved The Egg and I, so your story is highly anticipated!

NYGuy54

I tried calling you. I think your phone is off the hook. Call me.

Cuppa Covfefe

Years ago a friend and I used to trade calendars. One year, I got a “COWLENDAR” with all sorts of cowny jokes (as it were). One shows a mother cow, relaxing in the recovery room, surrounded by her cow friends, holding her newborn calf.
One of the cows says, “So cute, and only a quarter pound… what did you name her?”
The momma replies, “Patty”…

Deplorable Patriot

Just go paleo. Trust me. Your body will change for the better.

Deplorable Patriot

Gail posted some of the research from the medical side of this, but the anthropological research on meat eating humans and the introduction of plant based agriculture is very interesting, IMO.
Prior to grains, specifically, being added to the human diet, the average height of a human man was 5’9″. Teeth were not crowded, bones were straight and strong. About 10,000 years ago, when agriculture was organized and grains became part of the diet on a regular basis, all of that changed. Human height averaged at 5’3″ for men and women shorter. Jaws started to shrink. Now we’re seeing third molars disappear, and all of that.
It looks like putting more animal based food back into the diet is turning us into our ancestors height wise, which would explain why Americans are just bigger people than some other cultures. Not just taller, but larger boned aside from the obesity issue. Societies where protein from fish is important as well. Weston Price was one of the people who did a lot of travelling to look at indigenous cultures where meat and fish are standards in the diet, and questioned the wisdom of all the plants we eat.

Gail Combs

The introduction of agriculture also was when the human brain started SHRINKING.
If Modern Humans Are So Smart, Why Are Our Brains Shrinking?
Quora — Why has the human brain shrunk 10% in the last 10,000 years? contains several links
Good summary article: Vegetarians have smaller brains

Barry Groves, PhD
There is overwhelming evidence that we can not be a vegetarian species. In 1972 the publication of two independent investigations confirmed this.-1-2They concerned fats. About half our brain and nervous system is composed of complicated, long-chain, fatty acids. These are also used in the walls of our blood vessels. Without them we cannot develop normally. These fatty acids do not occur in plants, although fatty acids in a simpler form do. This is where plant-eating herbivores come in. Over the year, the herbivores convert the simple fatty acids found in grasses and seeds into intermediate, more complicated forms. By eating the herbivores we can convert their stores of these fatty acids into the ones we need….
….But, getting back to brain size, the decline which started with the advent of agriculture and our greater reliance on foods of plant origin has now seen a dramatically greater decline in those who have adopted a ‘healthy’, vegetarian diet.
Scientists at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, University of Oxford, recently discovered that changing to a vegetarian diet could be bad for our brains – with those on a meat-free diet six times more likely to suffer brain shrinkage…..

Deplorable Patriot

I worked for people who were vegetarians. Veggie brain is a real hazard.

I hope so!
It would be nice if McTurtle called them the ‘Democrat Party’, though…because they are not democratic.
I was so thrilled to hear Pres Trump saying this!
Because I’ve been saying the same thing for a long time.
😀

Sylvia Avery

Same here!

Charlie

Only change is when he’s near death. “No Name” vitriol or crying like a baby.
He will NEVER change.

Steve in Lewes

I just hope he doesn’t stab our President in the back on the emergency declaration BS !
Will he bring it to the floor for a vote or just let it die ?
I do not trust him…he’s more of a weasel than a turtle in my opinion.

bflyjesusgrl

Bring it!!! POTUS will Veto and they can’t override. We’ll get all the opposition RINOS on record.

Deplorable Patriot

Could be. There’s not much more obvious than that vote.

TY, Marica!
Yes, and I’ve seen a few of these memes, with VSGPDJT using Twister as a tremendously effective media weapon – the weapon of TRUTH!
That Da Nang Dick twist was EPIC! Someone twisted it, then the anons caught it, and the POTUS broadcast it to the world!
Good morning!

Good Morning ES!!! Our POTUS doesn’t waste 1 second!! It’s simply amazing!!!

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is fining a Charlottesville, Virginia, firm hundreds of thousands of dollars for hiring foreign workers on H-1B visas instead of qualified Americans in its latest settlement, thanks to former Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ Protecting U.S. Workers Initiative.

since he can’t do it ETHICALLY perhaps that’s why he got disbarred BEFORE testimony?

Cohen is a nasty evil little POS, hope he has a really interesting time in jail.

hmmm…Gaetz has apologized…will it be enough? nope, Dems want him removed from Congress…

Sylvia Avery

Gaetz is effective. Of COURSE they want to bounce him out. Grr….

Pat Frederick

there is a counteroffensive mounting against Omar–about committing fraud in regards to immigration policies–she married her brother to get him here I believe–she could be subject to 5 yrs in jail and a hefty fine…so they might be playing chicken…see who blinks first…but I like Gaetz.
Many are saying he is learning to use the tactics of the left–state something really outrageous–just south of the “line”, let it ripen on line to garner interest and outrage, then walk it back and say sorry.
see if it works for him…

Sylvia Avery

He’s a smart cookie.
I hope that horrible Omar gets bounced out of the House. She and her m*f’er friend are a pair to draw to, that’s for sure.

daughnworks247

Then you HAVE to remove AOC as well.
She threatened Don. Jr. with a subpoena because she was pinned into a corner on a tough tweet by Don and SHE had a knee jerk reaction.
Did SHE ever apologize?
Did she ever “remove the tweet”?
Spineless Republicans. We lost a Sec of State in Florida because he dressed up as a Katrina refugee. We STILL have Virginia governor, Lt Gov, and Atty general in office.

Pat Frederick

Amen!
you know, if you weren’t working so hard 24/7, I think the President should nominate you to the KickAss Brigade…I’m sure you could show those limp noodles in Congress how to fight!
Sylvia could provide the muscle…

daughnworks247

I’ve never understood why women want to be men in the workplace. Women can get away with anything. Husband, who is a talented lawyer, shakes his head, says, “I could never say that. Only you could get away with it.”
It’s true. And Sylvia Shovel would help a whole lot!

I sense another Presidential Veto in our near future. Heck, we’ll have several in the next 2years!!! Where’s Flep, we need a 2020 scorecard of Senate RINOS up for re-election.

This is excellent news!! We lost too many seats in special elections between 16 and 18!

Sylvia Avery

I’m kind of moved by the reports of excitement in Hanoi about hosting our event and their hopes for peace. And by the guys who say they want their hair cut and colored in a PDJT hair do because they admire him. Again, it kind of touches me in a surprising way.
I’m praying for peace and success in this summit. And shame on the evil Dims for trying to scuttle this. I swear they are all getting paid by the ChiComs to influence their actions, I don’t think it is all raw hatred of PDJT.

I love looking at the body language btween PDJT and Kim Jong Un. He seems a little nervous, but PDJT is very reassuring.
Interesting watching them talk to the press together.

Sylvia Avery

So now Kim and PDJT are off for dinner. Do you think PDJT will eat the octopus? Eeew. I’m not sure I could even pretend….and I wouldn’t have my dog under the table to slip it to like I did when I was a kid.

JW in Germany

Octopus tastes better than many might imagine—not something I crave—but not all that bad, either.

churchmouse

Octopus is seriously good!
Only the tentacles, cut up in pieces, are cooked: either low and slow or sautéed quickly over high heat in a flavoursome Asian or Provencal sauce.
There is also octopus salad: pieces of cooked tentacle further marinated in a delicious vinaigrette.

Pat Frederick

eeeeewwwww
i don’t think i could eat anything that can be described using the word TENTACLE…seriously…too close to the word testicle and while roasting a few of those Democrat ones would be lovely, i wouldn’t be eating those either…

churchmouse

‘TENTACLE…seriously…too close to the word testicle’. That never occurred to me.
Oh, well, more for me, then. 🙂
