Dear MAGA: 20190521 Open Topic

This TO RESTORE OUR CONSTITUTION TUESDAY 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 SOMEWHAT 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 the 5 words that President Trump and Vice President Pence love to hear:

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!


AND WHAT TIME IS IT? TIME TO….

DRAIN THE SWAMP

Our movement

Is about replacing

A failed

And CORRUPT

Political establishment

With a new government controlled

By you, the American People.

Candidate Donald J. Trump

Also remember Wheatie’s Rules:

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

There may be some question about what speech is allowed here.

My goal is to be as expansive as possible, as far as RULES. My preference is to be no more restrictive than the First Amendment.

So far, the only LEGAL speech I’ve acted against is metaphorical “targeted violence” against famous individuals that is probably NOT a real threat, but is easily misinterpreted as one by our enemies, and thereby used to shut us down, or to paint me as a legitimate target in an abused law enforcement set-up.

I don’t actually LIKE that stance. I would prefer to fight it out on those cases, should the speech ever be questioned, when I know the person is NOT actually a threat. However, I’ve been CONNED before, and SETTING PEOPLE UP to come to the aid of BAIT VICTIMS is a specialty of the left. Just look at SPYGATE to see how this works.

When you see the wounded hostage girl in the middle of the road, you don’t help her. You dump 50,000 rounds of ammo into every conceivable ambush point. Then you inspect the bodies, remove the booby-traps from the girl, and interrogate her to see if she’s a true hostage. Probably not.

Now you understand why I dealt severely with these cases. Do it that way once, and they don’t happen again.

So what about child pornography?

Easy. It’s illegal. Not allowed. Along with any other clearly illegal speech.

NOW, that said, NOT all illegal speech will actually be removed from this site. Child pornography would be removed, obviously, because just looking at it intentionally is a crime. However, an ILLEGAL THREAT will remain posted PUBLICLY as EVIDENCE which the PUBLIC has a right to see. I would likely preserve the EVIDENCE and BAN THE ACCOUNT so that the evidence could not be deleted.

Unlike all these places that seem to think it’s OK to hide social media accounts once they become important, I will not hide evidence that the PUBLIC has a right to see. All arguments AGAINST this involve forms of PRIOR RESTRAINT, and I simply don’t buy that shit. Journalists have a RIGHT to see it. That includes citizen journalists.

Now – in the interest of investigations – into scandals like NXIVM, “pizzagate”, and the Podesta brothers, we may actually end up DISCUSSING child pornography. I don’t have a problem with that. AT ALL. If we have to label the threads NSFW, not a problem.

What about “plain old pornography”? Well, if it’s relevant to MAGA or citizen journalism in some way, like in the news, then not a problem. We may have to label a thread NSFW. That’s reasonable, IMO. We can work that out.

Personally, I think that LINKS will get us by for such cases, and I will definitely NOT censor such links. Authors, however, are free to enforce stricter or looser LEGAL standards on their own threads. We’ve already had NXIVM tattoos and barely-covered Stormy breasts on here, and there WAS that HC porn tweet on the Ted Cruz account that made big news, and I would have allowed that tweet to be posted in a comment. People had to CLICK IT to SEE IT. That’s pretty much the same as a link, IMO.

What about plain old “people want to look at porn”? I’m not sure if that violates the terms of service for WordPress, but there is that to consider. As it is, I don’t think any of our authors are likely to start a porn thread, but if it happened, I would insist that it be clearly marked and NOT have a graphic featured image. I would actually prefer it be passworded, but not sure if I have that capability on this site. I’ve never really looked into that.

We will cross that HIGHLY UNLIKELY bridge if and when we come to it. Personally, I think porn threads would be highly unpopular here, if only because most of us know it’s a form of cultural Marxism.

What about graphic violence?

Honestly, this stuff is going to appear routinely in any Daily Thread in a world with Communists and Muslims, and there is little point in labeling these threads all NSFW, but I think that people CAN consider using links instead of images.

HOWEVER, I am NOT going to restrict such speech. In some cases, I may even encourage it, as TRAINING. I would prefer to simply let people FIGHT IT OUT over content, rather than impose rules. Indeed, I have not seen you good people fight enough with each other over content. I feel like a free speech drill sergeant with a bunch of raw recruits who refuse to ENGAGE in fighting drills. Y’all are gonna need some toughening up.

To me, beheading pictures and “little-girl-run-over-by-a-jihadist” pictures are exactly what is needed to make people WAKE THE FUCK UP about the reality of the Red-Green axis and why it needs to be shut down HARD, with various Clintons and Podestas in PRISON, and suffering as many riots, rockets, and false flags as it takes. I mean, seriously. Are you folks ready for a NUKE OR TWO to shut down the cabal? I’m not seeing it. If you aren’t willing to see NUKES GO OFF – probably false flags or psychological terrorist actions by THEM – nuclear 9/11 – in our fight to protect free speech, you’re not ready for this fight. You will WIMP OUT on 1A.

The WOLF will not wimp out on 1A, 2A, or any of the rest. If we push THEM into some kind of “sum of all fears” action, TOUGH. THEY pay for THEIR crimes.

NO. PRIOR. RESTRAINT.

In addition, analysis of FAKE graphic violence is KEY to stopping the censorship movement, as PALLYWOOD and KIWIWOOD have both demonstrated.

SO – expect bloody and lurid as we topple the FAKE WORLD that has been imposed on us. If you need to look away, look away. Nobody will blame you.

Wolves are cuddly, but only up to a point.

Wolfie, a very fierce post! I’m a wee bit under the weather so I don’t feel very warrior like at the moment, but after a good night’s sleep I’m sure I’ll be back at it in the morning!
*****
Those inclined, please say a prayer for these candidates PDJT has come out in support of in the Special Election in PA today.

wheatietoo

wheatietoo

Thanks, Pat.
Yeah…I was sorry I missed watching the rally live, and joining in the fun on the rally thread.
But it’s great to read through it!
It’s the next best thing.
😃😊

Well, I won’t be shoveling anything today (unless of course I find a Comey or a Brennan in my garden) but I’m much improved! TY Rodney.

Rodney Short

Just give me a nudge when your shovel needs a good sharpening again.

ForGodandCountry

Yep.
Mel Brooks could never make his movies in today’s climate.

Deplorable Patriot

The one movie that could never have been made today that was not Mel Brooks is “The Bad News Bears.” Sad because that movie was ahead of its time.

ForGodandCountry

Wait….no…this one!!
.

ForGodandCountry

HA HA!!
Yes!!
LMAO

wheatietoo

Okay, what did I miss…did someone post some porn?
Or even worse, some child porn?

ForGodandCountry

Nope….the Wolf was indirectly answering a reply I made to him in the BACK TO CENSORSHIP thread from earlier today.

ForGodandCountry

Agreed.
Appreciate the thoughtful commentary in the OP up top kicking us off today.

amwick

Word….

wheatietoo

Ah.
Well I heartily agree, boss.
There are scary things out there…things we need to be aware of.
Our impulse is to ‘look away’.
But we shouldn’t look away.
We have to arm ourselves with the truth.
And sometimes the truth is very ugly and horrific.

ozzytrumpster

There’s a reason that the jihadis took their wives and kids to Syria. To normalise killing and violence against other, lesser humans. A renown Australian soldier remarked that it’s easy to kill people but hard to teach people to kill people. By that , I think, he meant that we have great weapons and training but there’s still a hesitation to cross that line. The jihadis ensured that they and their kids won’t ever have to worry about civilised restraint

ozzytrumpster

Even my eating a new asshole pick would be considered tame by my grandmother. She routinely killed her chooks when they stopped laying and the roosters went into the pot too.. our meat is presented to us in polystyrene trays covered in plastic. We’ve never had to pull the feathers out of a newly dead chook. Hunters know about gutting and skinning but most are inured to the visceral impact of slaughter. At the bataclan the terrorists castrated their victims prior to killing them. People were too stunned to move, fight . Better to die on your feet than live on your knees. We have to be as hard as them and Let Soldiers Be Soldiers, without lawyers second guessing them.

ozzytrumpster

Oh and Thomas wictor doesn’t show gore gratuitously. His videos are instructional and analytical. Very interesting.

ozzytrumpster

It’s so stupid. Criminals don’t obey the law anyway. Ban guns and only the law abiding citizens are disarmed. The dude that killed all those people at the gay nightclub chose one that was specifically gun free. The couple that killed their work colleagues did it in a gun free zone. Madness. They get a target rich environment with no one shooting back

Coldeadhands

Where’s MSM reporting of following story on Twitchy?!
“Prosecutor: Antioch church shooter’s goal was to kill ‘a minimum of 10 white churchgoers’ “
“It was all the way back in September 2017 when Twitchy ran a post asking the mainstream media where all the coverage was of the fatal shooting at Burnette Chapel Church of Christ in Antioch, Tenn., that killed one woman and injured seven others. The suspect, Emanuel Kidega Samson, was held at bay by Robert Engle, a 22-year-old concealed carry holder and usher at the church

ozzytrumpster

Oh and another thing. I REALLY, REALLY don’t want any of those jihadi kids to come back to western countries. I want them to die there and have unmarked graves. People say oh you shouldn’t sink to their level. Wrong. They and their spawn have not only forfeited the right to live but need to serve as a warning to others. Maybe that makes me a bad person but I don’t think there’s any hope of rehabilitation and they must be eradicated.

ozzytrumpster

I’ll get back off my soap box now before someone tells me to stfu.
Wait. What’s nsfw mean?

TakeBackOurRepublic

NSFW means not safe for work (usually designating some kind of porn content). Weird, but no reply button on your other comment so doing it here.

TakeBackOurRepublic

Thanks, I didn’t know that. Good morning!

TakeBackOurRepublic

I don’t know how you do it…but I thank you!

ozzytrumpster

Ahhh. Sorta like ggmc.-gotta go mother coming

TakeBackOurRepublic

Something like that. I think NSFW might have originated on the reddit boards.

Deplorable Patriot

Yes, I saw the pictures and quickly scrolled past them.

Aubergine

Way back when the first of the beheading videos hit the internet, I knew I had a serious decision to make.
I had VERY strong opinions about Islam, the war, and Muslims. I was vociferously vocal about my feelings. And I decided I couldn’t be that without watching what was REALLY happening. So I watched.
I believe most of us have been programmed by Hell-ywood into a false idea of what a beheading looks like. We see the guillotine, the sword swung, the ax fall, and believe it is a lightening-quick end of a person.
IT IS NOT.
Have you ever cut up a whole chicken? Sawed through the cartilage and bone? Think of it like that, only the chicken is alive, screaming and gurgling, and blood is spraying everywhere.
Sorry to be graphic, but since the day I watched that video, my solution to every argument with an idiot about Islam has been the same question: “have you ever watched an ACTUAL beheading? If your answer is no, then you have no idea what you are talking about, and no right to your opinion.”
I am ready for whatever comes, Wolf, up to and including your nukes.

Marica

Auburgine–Reminds me of my younger years when we would attend Rallies for Life!! A certain group would have graphic bloody babies of the REAL Abortions occurring under our noses…I was young and would literally turn away…in Hindsight–THOSE pics should have been what I was carrying…We were “PRO LIFE…We Should have been ANTI MURDER!!!!! Do NOT TURN AWAY!!! FACE THE TRUTH!!

singingsoul

Aubergine I have seen chicken killed I have seen pigs killed I have plugged feathers and watched chicken being cleaned. I have seen pigs converted into blood sausage and other edible parts. many years ago I was part of an hunting expedition in Austria and a beautiful buck was take.
Still to this day I barely can handle a dead chicken and I do not see to as food but a dead corps. I have to play mind games to prepare a chicken or Turkey or any meats for cooking.
Personally I do not need to see beheading I know what it looks like and I know what happens.
I prefer t skip horror. I am unable to watch many movies specially to do with death and killings or just plain evil acts. That is me because I am very sensitive to those things.
I am not against curiosity and to have to see in order to know what it looks like. I know how evil people can be . You are braver than I am to watch beheading on Internet I could never do that I would feel the pain of the person. Though I see your point 🙂

bakocarl

I am in that same boat. The things I won’t watch any more of are things I have already made strong convictions concerning.

Teagan

Could you please expand on the NZ Links to the massacre by H. Clinton, Obama and Podesta? I haven’t seen anything other than they were all there shortly prior to the staged event.
I would absolutely LOVE a solid connection to put them away, but can they really be that stupid, arrogant, unaware to create a visible tie?

Reposting this from late yesterday….

What do you get when you ADD THIS…. (Really READ this)….

Flashback: Maxine Waters Confirms Obama Has ‘Database’ with ‘Information on Every Individual’
https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2018/03/19/flashback-maxine-waters-confirms-obama-has-database-with-information-on-every-individual/
“As we reported earlier today, Obama’s 2012 media analytics director, Carol Davidsen, who oversaw the campaign’s data operations said they were able to “suck out the whole social graph” from Facebook during the 2012 campaign, allowing them to access the friend networks of every American user.
“[Facebook] came to [our] office in the days following election recruiting & were very candid that they allowed us to do things they wouldn’t have allowed someone else to do because they were on our side” admitted Davidsen.
In a 2013 interview, California congresswoman Maxine Waters revealed that Barack Obama possessed a “kind of database that no-one has ever seen before,” with “information about everything, on every individual.”
.
…..TO THIS……..????
.
.

ForGodandCountry

Question…
Did Obama use HAMR to spy on Chief Justice Roberts in order coerce him into ruling Obamacare as Constitutional in June 2012 after Roberts has been signaling during oral arguments he was going to vote against it??
Oh, yeah…..and given what we all know already…..
….did Obama and/or Brennan have Justice Scalia murdered just prior to the 2016 election, then blackmail his family not to have an autopsy done, or else?
Hmmmm.

ozzytrumpster

Roberts adopted kids from Ireland. Something sketchy there. Perhaps it was expedited. But after adopting he then found out he’d given hostages to fortune

NebraskaFilly

Ireland does not allow adoptions outside the country. Roberts allegedly paid for 2 pregnant Irish women to travel to a So. American country to give birth so he and his wife could adopt them.

ozzytrumpster

Yes. That’s it. Circumvented the law but not a good look for a sc judge.

ladypenquin

I would think that any ruling made under duress or blackmail… should be negated. If this can be proven – ie, actual conversations between Justice Roberts and the Dems, then it taints that ruling.

wheatietoo

There it is.
Many of us have suspected it was going on…and now, this is proof!
I’ve said before that the O-Team were probably like kids in a candy store, when they got control of the NSA and all the other governmental powers of spying on people.
How could they resist using it for their own evil purposes!
SpyGate is the Big Scandal.
All the rest has been an effort to prevent SpyGate from being exposed.
And they’ve been using all the usual Clintonista Tactics:
— Accuse others of the crimes they’ve been doing.
— Attack and vilify the messengers.
— Create False Narratives to dirty up their accusers.
— Create false flag events to support their false narratives.
— Manufacture false evidence to frame their opponents.
— Have their media nozzles repeat their lies, over and over.
Once you have seen these tactics used before…you can recognize them in play.

Tonawanda

Just venting: over and over and over throughout the years it is striking how essential the soviet Fake News is. All the other communist factories (Hollywood, academia, bureaucracy, finance, Demokkkrat party) are second tier and subordinate to the soviet media.
Propaganda works. Propaganda convinces many, many people to “believe” that men are women. Propaganda convinces leftist apparatchiks working in hospitals and nursing homes that the white people in their care are better dead.
Propaganda does NOT persuade people to adopt communist ideas, it persuades them to accept a change in the definition of perfectly good words to mean something entirely different. People do not actually believe that 2 + 2 = 5, they simply (and increasingly more rapidly) come to understand that 2 + 2 = 5 is the “right” thing to say, and to pretend to believe.
And once the definition changes (e.g. “privilege”) the “reality” changes for many, many stupid people of child-like mentality (e.g. white people in hospitals deserve to be mistreated and given arrogant contempt).
The communists among other things need to humiliate America, and they are succeeding wildly. The communists can get enough people to believe any absurdity, and to drop any instinct of self-preservation. And they know there is very little which understanding people can do about it.

ozzytrumpster

Obama’s data base is something they bragged about. Facebook were involved. They were so confident that they would never be called to account. Hubris again

ozzytrumpster

Read an article on Facebook. What do you buy from face book? Nothing. Oh sure there are some marketers but it’s very limited so as not to disrupt the social networking. So how does face book make money? Information. They sell information and they skew to promote viewpoints they approve of. They are making money harvesting and sowing. Good money if you can get it.

amwick

🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

Teagan

The thing I ask myself, why would someone of Maxine’s extremely low intellect even know about the data base? Uncontrollable mouth….thanks to her blunder the world now knew about the data base.
Another question about the potential blackmailing of Justice Roberts…so what if they circumvented the adoption laws of Ireland? That wouldn’t remove him from the SC, would it?

NebraskaFilly

I would think that would depend on whether or not Ireland chose to charge him.

Teagan

Why would Ireland have any influence on our government? The whole thing has a bad odor to it!

NebraskaFilly

Another country bringing charges against a SCOTUS nominee – you don’t think that might work against him just a bit?

ozzytrumpster

Why remove him when you’ve got a grip on his kids?

Pat Frederick

does anyone else think of Nellie Ohr when HAMR is mentioned…it’s just a visual thing I guess…HAM RADIO…I need more coffee

Marica

Thanks FG&C for tying these together!! Phoenix has been posting Mimi B’s thread for 3 days!!! I only just saw it last nite!!! H/T to Phoenix!!!!!! Excellent Find!!!

ozzytrumpster

We have to play as nasty as them. Take down their facade of religion of peace and socialist utopia. Pres Trump is a genius at making them unmask themselves but we have to do our bit. No squeamishness allowed. If they are happy to behead etc we have to have the guts to acknowledge what they are. Taiqua can only work if we allow ourself to believe the lies.
To the mattresses.

Some pictures & videos of the tornado outbreak yesterday:

[youtube

.
The central plains area is where we get a convergence of front systems from the W-NW, with warm moisture pumping up from the Gulf.
This often forms a sort of ‘pinwheel’ action that results in spinning vortices, or tornadoes.
You can see this pinwheel action in motion…right now…on this live interactive Wind Map:
http://hint.fm/wind/index.html
The line of storms that produced the tornadoes here yesterday, is still on the move and is currently in MO and IL.
Hopefully the cooler temperatures will prevent tornadoes from forming in that line.
But I hope people will keep an eye on it.
We’ve got another line of strong storms currently training up and down through TX-OK-KS.
There are some active tornado warnings in play…right now.
The leading edge of this line has already passed over us here at casa wheatie.
So I think we’re out of the firing line…unless the back end of this front gets organized.
Torrential rains here, though.
At times like a fire hose.

ozzytrumpster

Not sure like is the right response. Yikes would be better

ozzytrumpster

Looks like it’s drop a house on a witch weather. The demoncraps better play it safe.

Pat Frederick

holy cow! that looks huge!!! hope no one was hurt!

wheatietoo

Haven’t heard of any serious injuries, yet.
Hopefully that will stay the case, as daylight comes and people can survey the damage.
😌🤞🙏

ozzytrumpster

Last thing before I stuff a loaf of bread into my own mouth. Alex graham quod verum social. Very interesting thread on the money laundering. Anonymous conservative also mentioned it. They might not get these creeps on treason but follow the money. Probably Pres Trump doing his usual disinformation,misdirection trick. People didn’t do all this shit for govt pensions. Al Capone was nailed for tax evasion.
As a last thought. In 1672, a mob of angry Dutch killed and ate their prime minister. Options. We got options.

And so originated the term “Dutch Treat”…. 🙂

There is an interesting interview of Former Navy Intel Officer Tony Shaffer by the Epoch Times that gets into that. It is really good because Saffer gets into the ‘mechanics’ of how the intel community is SUPPOSED to work and the legalities and the role of the IG. Contractors are not supposed to see Raw Intel PERIOD!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITvnDtuRIgM

daughnworks247

Highly suggest this video. Someone posted it a couple of days ago, and I took a peak. New stuff, and interesting.

TheseTruths

“Contractors are not supposed to see Raw Intel PERIOD!”
I’ve wondered how it is that outside people can be hired to work with our most sensitive materials. It always seemed susceptible to fraud to me. And of course it is.

NebraskaFilly

This is THE “Military Industrial Complex” in a nutshell. Even back in the mid-70’s, when I served at the Pentagon, contractors were ubiquitous.

Gail Combs

Mark Steyn does an interview with Gpeorge Papadopoulos. It has different information come out compared to the Dan Bongino interview.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45m5DP1xfRg

Tonawanda

I love to read Steyn and have read several of his books. His music columns are wonderfully entertaining and his political insight is just amazing. We are so lucky to have him.
But he has the Dobbs/Hannity habit of interrupting (sometimes when the interviewee is about to make a significant point, which is then lost.)
I realize by now that Steyn has had cocktails with many hundreds if not thousands of people whose names we recognize. That IS an interesting fact. But interviewing people with knowledge NO ONE else has is not the occasion to comment on the gin and tonic he had 11 years ago in a Sydney pub with a very important person.

GA/FL

Could that be a coded message?

Tonawanda

I forget the exact point Papa was in the process of making about Downer but Papa made it clear that it was an important point, interrupted when Steyn had to relate about having drinks with Downer, and knowing Downer, and having a few chuckles with Downer. So Papa’s point about Downer was lost.

GA/FL

Hmmm. I wonder if orders were given to interrupt.

Tonawanda

Had not thought of that! Now I see what you are saying.
Sort of OT: there is something unsettling about the Papa situation beyond the fact that he was (apparently) being set up.
1) The sneakers and the ankle socklets with his ankles showing.
2) The rigid imitation of Trump’s interview posture, with the hands making a triangle, and the stiff upper body making a 90 degree angle.
3) Papa’s flexibility in moving around. He must be very wealthy, or very well connected, or both.
4) His motive for joining a “renegade” campaign. He says he immediately LOVED Trump’s position on trade, immigration and security, but then moved to Carson when he could not join the Trump campaign. Rather an amazing “career move” (as HE described it).
5) What is it exactly which made Papa so appealing to so many OTHER than the Deep Staters? His expertise in the Eastern Mediterranean energy business? Papa tries to address this big question mark, but not very satisfactorily.
6) The story about the 10,000 does not sit right with me. I cannot say why. The exact figure screams illegality so loudly. Did the giver think Papa was that stupid or criminal? It all seems a little too perfect.
7) And more generally, what made the Deep Staters think they could run this scam on Papa, the guy everyone wanted because of his ????? what ????? True, getting laid is a powerful means to short circuit rational thought, but surely they had more to go on than that?

GA/FL

Papadap’s wife is Russian isn’t she? Oligarch’s daughter?
We are ALL very suspicious these days – it’s natural considering we have endured so much lying and gas-lighting and crooked politicians and media.

Tonawanda

My native speaking Russian wife says she does not think that Papa’s wife speaks with a Russian accent, FWIW.

GA/FL
GA/FL

However – so far at least – Papadap has not been indicted like Manafort.

thetinfoilhatsociety

I have spent a lot of time in the special needs community; my aunt had Down’s syndrome and my family was very active in Special Olympics and mainstreaming as well as in getting “sheltered workshops” set up for people with disabilities so they could work. My mother was a special education teacher and I was a special ed aide for several years. One of my kids, while never formally diagnosed, is probably on the autism spectrum (used to be called Asperger’s). I say this because I’ve watched a LOT of Papadopoulos recently and I’m pretty well convinced he is on the Autism Spectrum – also what used to be called Asperber’s. Watch his interviews again from that perspective. He’s an Aspie, I’m sure of it. Which makes this setup all the more infuriating. Because they thought they could use this against him to set him up.

Tonawanda

VERY interesting! That would definitely account for the “I can’t put my finger on it” reaction he causes.
Maybe his interviewers know (or sense) something along those lines and are accommodating that.

BAM

To Tinfoil’s comment about Asperger’s, that makes so much sense. I have an adult child who may fall in the spectrum, and they have to learn how to react to and what is appropriate in social situations. It fits his failure to identify initially people trying to use him. Once identified though, not forgotten and that’s also indicative of good intelligence.

Gail Combs

Mark Steyn is no where near as bad as Urinalist Interuptus, the species found on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX, BBC….

tom f

I can’t dismiss that feeling I get when reading/seeing G Papa every day.
Over the top? Why?
Throwing shade on everyone to save himself?

Pat Frederick

he already did his time in prison…if he’s truly innocent and was set up, he has every right to be pissed and squawking about the corrupt system that put him in jail.
or maybe he’s drumming up book sales…lol

Tonawanda

See my post ABOVE yours made an hour after yours, but before I read yours. I am drawing no conclusions, but there just seems to be something “off” about the Papa stuff.
I do not rule out the very first speculations (and they ARE just guesses) about Papa, that he was a plant in the Trump campaign.

Gail Combs

I have always thought Carter Page was C_A his Politico Bio SCREAMs CIA link
And I always thought PapaD was ????
FROM MY NOTES:
NOTE Imperator_Rex No wonder Twatter got rid of him he was getting TOO CLOSE

<b.George Papadopoulos was a Fusion GPS plant, burrowed into the Trump campaign team, to entrap Trump's people into engineered meetings with Russians.

1. Sergei Millian is the link between the Kremlin, Fusion GPS, Clinton & Obama. He was one of a number of FSB/SVR agents tasked to make sure Hillary Clinton’s Trump-Russia lie prevented Trump’s election.

http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2018/01/the-noose-tightens-sergei-millian-is.html
2. Millian, aka Siarhei Kukuts is a key Putin spy & operator. IMO his importance has been neglected. I covered his background and role as George Papadopoulos’ handler here: https://twitter.com/Imperator_Rex3/status/925853596314345472
3. Appointed head of the ‘American Russia Chamber of Commerce’ in 2006, he would have had access to the highest levels of American power – especially through the Obama years – ESPECIALLY through the ‘Russian re-set’.
4. AND through the Uranium One deal, Tenam investigation, as well as during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. Millian would have met and known all the key US players and served as an intermediary between them and Moscow.
5. As well as with Putin’s inside circle. Check out this photo from 2016. That’s Millian on the left. Anyone know who is on the right
6. Oleg Deripaska, one of Putin’s inner circle of crooks. The same Deripaska who engaged Paul Manafort as a lobbyist. The same Manafort who was working closely with Tony Podesta as a lobbyist for Putin: https://t.co/CEAkvo6DvX
8. Unfortunately for them, it was revealed that the Fusion GPS dossier in which Millian assisted, was conceived and paid for by Hillary Clinton. Millian was the key contacts with the Kremlin – for Fusion GPS, not Trump.
13. Manafort also deceived Trump. There’s no way Trump would have brought him in, if he’d known Manafort was a close associate of Tony Podesta and Oleg Deripaska. Manafort will pay dearly for hoodwinking The Donald, you can be sure of that.
14. Putin would have known the ‘Trump-Russia’ plan in its entirety, especially the role he was to play.
He had top spooks working on it and remember, he’s done dirty work with Fusion GPS previously:

Unsealed court documents reveal that the firm behind the salacious 34-page Trump-Russia Dossier, Fusion GPS, was paid $523,000 by a Russian businessman convicted of tax fraud and money laundering, whose lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, was a key figure in the infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower arranged by Fusion GPS associate Rob Goldstone.
In short, D.C. opposition research firm Fusion GPS is the common denominator linked to two schemes used to damage the Trump campaign. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-11-22/dirty-dossier-firm-unsealed-fusion-gps-bank-records-reveal-523k-payment-russian-mone

Anti-Kremlin Banker: Fusion GPS Assisted Putin Regime In Effort ‘To Have Me Imprisoned And Killed

OK, I just made it through 15 minutes of the Bongino “interview,” which consists so far of long statements by Bongino followed by Papa’s (sometimes bewildered) reaction to Bongino.
The points Bongino is making are all excellent points which he has made before, but they pour cold water over Papa.
What is wrong with our side? Why is it so hard to let people speak for themselves?

Gail Combs

Bongino tries to make sure his podcasts are ‘stand alone’ and can be understood by IQ 90 and up.
Remember, thanks to Ted Kennedy the IQ in the USA is now 97-98 and that is MID POINT! Half our population has IQs less than 98!

Tonawanda

He accomplishes just the opposite as far as I can see. He tries to stuff too much detail into too small a space. He does not know the art of conveying the Big Picture in a simple and cogent way.
Bongino’s audience is NOT made up of low IQ people. They are made up of people following the details closely, and who want to listen to what the guy with unique knowledge (Papa) has to say for himself, not how smart Bongino has been in figuring things out.

Deplorable Patriot

Bongino sets off my radar for some reason. Not sure why. Could be because he’s not a dog person, but he was on The Five one afternoon when I watched and something was not sitting right.

Gail Combs

Bongino is in it for the $$$$. However he does provide decent info.
The fact he is now under contract with Murddock’s FOX raised my eyebrows.

Storm Chasers provide a good source of up-to-the-minute information on tornadic activity.
People used to scoff at them…but these canon ball catchers’ obsession performs a valuable service for us, IMHO.
In recent years, some of the Storm Chasers started using Drones.
They send their drones forward into to forming tornadoes…in closer than they can safely go…and manage to get some amazing footage.
This often provides data on storm direction, level of organization and strength, in the vortex.
These guys are a couple of professional drone racers, who are using their drone-piloting skills to chase storms:

.
Reed Timmer is an Oklahoman who started storm chasing as a teen.
He was on the Discovery Channel’s storm chaser shows, when those were in production…but now he works for AccuWeather.
Pres Trump used one of Reed Timmer’s videos last fall, during Hurricane Florence.

wheatietoo

Uh oh…sorry for the duplicate video.
I meant to include this one:

daughnworks247

So happy you are okay Wheatie.
Not sure if it has ever happened before. In anticipation of bad weather, OK closed schools and we were all on pins and needles all day. Wow.

wheatietoo

Thanks, Daughn.
😌🙂
It had all the ingredients of being a really bad outbreak of tornadoes…but that cool front came in a little earlier than expected and was a God send.
And yeah, closing schools for possible tornado outbreaks is a recent thing…since some schools got destroyed a few years ago…with children in them.
A lot of businesses closed yesterday too.

anyone shocked?
FTA:
U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta, an Obama judge, ruled that Mazars USA must comply with the House Oversight and Reform Committee’s subpoena for eight years of Trump’s financial records. The president will most certainly appeal the ruling.

well let’s see…Feinstein set her husband up to profit off things she learned while in office. Pelosi is mob–no guessing there. Harris charged for her “special services” along the way. Sanders runs failed campaigns and gets bought off from the competition. I think Warren stole Indian heritage, taught 1 class for $400K or something ridiculous and probably got kickbacks from some casino…

GA/FL

The Congress has become the lobbyists lobbyists. Remember, some dude told us our legislators don’t write the laws, they sell them to the people and each other….they sell their votes to the highest bidder.
How they hide their corruption remains to be exposed…book deals is one way.

With the Chris Collins indictment information came out which was stunning to me and (I guess) to many others: until a couple years ago Congress was exempt from insider-trading laws.

My four braincells had a thought when I read that wordpress has a setting that limits replys to replys,,,after 7….
I have seen comments that ended up a couple letters wide… and it made them really hard to read..Narrow thoughts, hmmmmmmmm..

drillerelite

The one letter per line vertical posts are annoying, I used to get that all the time OT and had to turn my device sideways which would then scroll me to a different part and do have to find my place again.
When I found QTree I figured out at least 3 different ways to read. The wordpress app is nice but I’ve noticed that YouTube links don’t show up. Also https://wordpress.com/ should list your followed sites and works pretty well. I find it hardest to read if you open the site directly such as: https://wqth.wordpress.com/2019/05/21/dear-maga-20190521-open-topic/

Teagan

Drill….since we are talking “how to read” stuff, permit me to ask what is undoubtedly a very dumb question……is there anyway one can go directly to the last post? Depending on my schedule, I sometimes will check into the daily a few times a day but always have to start at the top and scroll, and scroll until I get to unread currents.
I’m on an iPad, if that makes a difference. Occasionally, we will get some tips from others but cannot apply to tablets.

drillerelite

Hi Teagan. That’s another annoying thing if you use the app, scrolling scrolling scrolling. Try wordpress website then open a thread, the last 20 or so comments will be below the author’s post with an option to open more comments. Try this link to todays open thread and see,

If you do “control F” to do a specific search, put the latest hour in as a search term in the box.
So if it is 1 PM, that is 13: Remember to put the colon after the number. (Midnight is 00:).
That search will take you to all the posts made from 13:00 to 13:59, and saves a lot of time.
This was Steve in Colorado’s idea from a couple months back, and it works nicely.

I figured it’s because I’m techi illiterate with my smart phone, but it appears that it’s the way wordpress works. I have an Android. If I go via bookmarked Q-Tree, I get annoying T-Mobile advertisement – takes 3-4 open and close attempts to get rid of to read site. If I go via a notification per my email I can read the site.
Fortunately, I use my desktop to participate most of the time.

I use firefox with ublock origin and don’t have a problem with ads anymore. I just tried opening from a link in my email and got this 😮comment image

Site being censored. That’s happened to me a couple of times from my desktop, where I have Chrome and duck, duck, go. Got rid of Firefox a couple of years ago. It just wasn’t functioning well anymore.

drillerelite

I never tried my desktop, maybe I’ll check it out seeings how I’m snowed in today. Come to think of it, I assembled a great computer system a couple of years ago then promptly stopped using it when I got an android, the problem seems to be that I can’t carry my desktop system around with me 😄

Drillerelite, I finally got a smartphone last December. Held out… Really don’t like the fact everyone is on a screen, and didn’t want to do it – just wanted my phone to be a phone. 🙂 But the I do like the pics of the grandbabies, and the kids text me much, much, much quicker than they’ll call. 🙁 Still, the desktop is what works for techi challenged penguin.

Wolfie suggested Brave too and I just installed it. It seems really good, just wish I could figure out how to import my bookmarks 🤔

hmmm…always accuse others of what you yourself are doing, right?
FTA:
“When a powerful chairman of a committee of the House of Representatives has a wife that is bringing in money from entities with interests before his Committee and she is not providing the transparency mandated by the IRS, there’s a serious problem,” said Anderson. “The potential for corruption in this situation is simply off the charts and can’t be understated. We hope Chairman Cummings works with his wife to end the stonewalling and provide the public with what’s legally mandated all charities provide.”
Both Cummings and Rockeymoore refused to discuss the allegations with the Washington Examiner. Cummings did not answer questions about the overlap between companies with interests before his committee and donors to his wife’s foundation. Rockeymoore did not respond to request for comment.
Cummings recently subpoenaed Trump’s financial records, prompting the president to sue him in an effort to block the subpoena. Cummings struggled with serious financial problems after joining Congress over 20 years ago. His house was placed in foreclosure, at one point; he owed $30,000 in unpaid taxes to the IRS; and he was taken to court multiple times for thousands in unpaid debts. Cummings said his financial difficulties were due to his hefty child support payments.

In 15 years, I haven’t had any damage yet. With Hermine, we were out of power for 4-5 days, but with Cat 5 Michael, it was only 1 day.

Growing up in NOLA, we had the hurricane map on the back of the utility room door, we tracked every storm. With my folks now gone, we have extra room for good friends. Everyone needs an exit plan.

Popcorn at the ready, the truth is set free!
Dimms made their plan then launched their coup,
Typical for Dimms, it’s what losers do.
They made a fable then passed it as true,
Pushed by the Small Group – a treasonous crew.
We’ve waited so long as Dimms schemed and lied;
Our patience runs thin, we’re fit to be tied.
Some just got angry, and others, they cried,
With all ups and downs it’s been a rough ride.
Now happier days are sure to be here –
Justice is moving, though timing’s unclear.
Stronger and stronger, the Dimm’s daily sneers,
Until they are stilled when justice appears.
When justice has come and levied her fine,
Dimms and press broken, hear them weep and whine.
Deplorables now, feelin’ good, just fine,
Our country rescued, our joy genuine.

Guy Verhofstadt on anti-EU party leaders. He calls them ‘traitors’. Sad:

Speaking of Marine Le Pen, Steve Bannon is in Paris, supposedly helping her with her party’s EU election campaign (RN, Rassemblement National).
He was interviewed on RMC talk radio yesterday by Jean-Jacques Bourdin. Bourdin has RMC’s flagship morning show. I think Bourdin did better as an interviewer than Bannon did as an interviewee, but that is probably because a translator had to be present, so there were two voices at any one time, which made listening to his answers really difficult.
Today, Bannon was the subject of discussion on the RMC show that follows Bourdin’s: Les Grandes Gueules (The Big Mouths). One of the panellists, Daniel Riollo, gave a highly intelligent analysis of Bannon: essentially, surplus to requirements.
According to Riollo:
1/ Marine Le Pen did not invite Bannon this week; he just poled up. One of Le Pen’s RN parliamentarians, Gilbert Collard, said the party does not need Bannon for their election campaigns. They can manage perfectly well without him.
2/ Le Pen has been sidelining Bannon over the past several months.
3/ Bannon is trying to create a University of Ideas among various European nationalist leaders, but isn’t doing too well because each of these leaders has a different outlook based on his/her country’s needs. It’s not as if they all agree on every issue, because they do not.

4/ Marine Le Pen used to want to leave the euro and return to the Franc. Now she doesn’t. She used to want to leave the EU. Now she wants it reformed.
5/ Bannon isn’t wanted in his own country. Trump dumped him, so Bannon had to come to Europe. It seems that Matteo Salvini is the only one who actually meets with him regularly.
Having heard Riollo discuss Bannon, I rather wish that he had interviewed Bannon rather than J-J Bourdin. He really would have put Bannon on the back foot.

Deplorable Patriot

Bannon is a cabal target because he is actually making inroads against them and taking action in a number of ways. The progressive wing of the Church is complaining LOUDLY about what he is doing outside of Rome with the institute to teach young politicians the language of nationalism in relation to faith.
He’s one of the good guys.

Saw an interview with Raymond Aroyo (of Laura Ingraham fame) and Steve Bannon done in April of 2019.
Bannon has 100 million to start a “Gladiator Institute” in Italy. Purpose is to train people up, to enter politics, corp life, media, and sole goal is to COUNTER Soros and what he has done in Europe.
We don’t have an answer to Soros, from the right. Bannon is working on it.
Pretty cool.
And discussion about the Catholic Church is fascinating.

Deplorable Patriot

Umm, Raymond Arroyo made his name on EWTN. Laura Ingraham just borrows him.

daughnworks247

I like him!

Deplorable Patriot

Yeah, he’s been around at least since before Mother Angelica died. He was always live at the March for Life. Great guy.

I was watching Saturday morning cooking shows, and who popped on by Raymond.
He’s either from New Orleans or …… something.
He had a cooking show. Boy knows how to make a roux. Passes in my book!

rayzorbak

1st time I saw him…..
I thought:
PEE WEE HERMAN!

Deplorable Patriot

Now that I’ve managed to watch the whole thing, Bannon’s explanation of the Chinese situation on a number of fronts was absolutely one of the clearest I’ve heard.
He also dug into the ugliness of the Scandal and what so many Catholics don’t want to hear. Some dioceses have taken steps to protect the assets, but not all have and even if we know that the Church is more of a confederacy than a top down institution, as far as the government is concerned, She is a single entity and all most people see are $$$$$, not the places that we worship and receive sacraments.
The leftist wing of the Church won’t watch EWTN, but a lot of Catholics who are devout, but naive do. This is a good interview for them to hear. I can think of a few who should, but probably won’t, watch it.
As for the Gladiator Institute, all of Brogoglio’s cronies have spoken out against it. That alone told me it was a worthwhile project. If you see the names Marx, Martino, Cupich, Wuerl – assume their position is that of the globalists/cabal. They are the ringleaders.

daughnworks247

Yo guys are way over my head……. but I admit, I’m worried for the Catholic Church when the trial lawyers ramp up.
What is EWTN?
Gladiator Inst sounds cool.
Bet I could talk Marica into going………!

EWTN – Eternal Word Television Network. World Over Live is one of the news programs. The broadcast center is in Alabama. It was founded by a nun we know as Mother Angelica in the 1980s. There’s daily Mass, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, shows on conversion, etc. The theology is SOLID. I mean SOLID to the point that some of the progressive cardinals would not allow the network to be on cable systems in some cities (Los Angeles under Mahoney was one). And, yes, they can do that. Other than the Jesuits, the bishop is in control.
I’m not as worried as some others when it comes to the lawsuits, at least on the Federal level. Not with Trump picks in there. It’s the states that are a concern.

I watched our morning local news to see what they said about the rally. They said “thousands of supporters AND protestors” showed up. Then they showed POTUS and the huge crowd in the hangar and a clip of Brick Suit Man coming up on stage. They followed that with some brief clips from people at the rally and how excited they were and how the rally was a once in a lifetime experience. Finally they got to the protestors–less than 50 they said –looked like a dozen–and interviewed the one guy who repeated the bs story about Charlottesville and not all Mexicans were rapists…

I think the “Save the Planet from Boiling” crapola has had the same effect as “Orange Man Bad” in creating fake polling data. Some people are too shy to admit that they are worried about the effect that “saving the planet” would have on the economy, so they claim to intend to vote for the lefty agenda, only to – not.
Virtue signalling is killing the left – as it should. Fake polls tell them to continue virtue signalling, which just scares the voters more, as they privately consider the ramifications of the “virtuous” policies.
This is a beautiful trap that the left have constructed – it snares THEM every time. Petard hoisting at its finest!!!

Great analysis. Many thanks.
Had no idea the eco-warrior thing was so YUGE there, but not surprising.
Agree 110% with you about virtue signalling killing the Left. Keep going, guys.
As you say, ‘Petard hoisting at its finest!!!’ And how!

I used to enjoy doing polls — I even was a participant in focus groups and studies done by a local firm, Nichols Research. Besides paying cash, they’d have some studies that were very interesting — I remember one where they had small cars from Nissan, Honda, Toyota, Ford, Saturn, and Mitsubishi (with their brands removed) and you had to hop in the front, hop in the back, slam the doors, pretend to drive — then answer a bunch of questions about, “which felt more solid, which felt more luxurious, which had the best amenities?” Turns out, each car was tricked out to within $200 of the price of all the others. Within two years, I had purchased the 1994 Honda that I still drive.
But I digress…..I used to do all sorts of polls, but somewhere in the early 00’s, it became obvious that they were pushing a narrative and couldn’t be trusted, so I stopped.
We did a study around 2010 where we kept track of the phone calls we were getting — over a two week period, we’d get an average of 3-4 per day. And in all of that two weeks, the only call we actually wanted to respond to turned out to be the Fiancee’s sister accidentally butt-dialling her. So we stopped answering the phone unless Caller ID showed someone we knew.
Pollsters and robocallers have been neutered by people just refusing to play the game. Ironically, it was the hubris of the offenders involved that drove people to that decision. Pollsters sold themselves to anti-Brexiters, anti-Trumpists, anti-AfD’ers, and anti-sane-Aussiers by promising to either push-poll the results desired, or show precisely how much the people paying the bills needed to spend to be victorious. In each case, the more they bought-into the mission, the less likely they were to provide value.

How cool to have been able to do so many polls, especially on cars.
You must have ticked all the right boxes in the initial questionnaire to be such a regular.
However, I agree that once you see the agenda, everything becomes clear: agenda, agenda, agenda.

He mentions that after saying “No” to WaPo about an interview…he was kicked off of his book publishing on Amazon.

Latest EU election polls in the UK follow. This is probably the last set, as we vote on Thursday, and campaigning stops on Wednesday.
Brexit Party leads nationwide. Lib Dems (Remain) are in second place:

In London, LDs are in first, with BP a close second:

The Guardian’s sister Sunday paper, The Observer, advises voters NOT to vote Labour. Hmm:

What’s the difference between Trump supporters and Bernie supporters?
Trump supporters sign the fronts of checks…LOL

Pat Frederick

article details Bernie saying we have 12 yrs to defeat climate change…blah, blah, blah…
guess he didn’t get the memo that the Pompous Little Twit was just joking and anyone who thought she was serious has the intelligence of a sea sponge…LOL
he’s also getting raked over the coals about being in Alabama spouting out this crap–“how’d he get here?” walk?”

I read several Vance Packard books in the late 70’s. I can’t remember which book it was in but Packard said that in the Korean or Vietnam war only 1/4 of the soldiers ever fired their rifles because they did not want to kill people. Most would not even kill the enemy to protect themselves.
As Christians, killing our enemies is not our first thought. We leave that to Satan’s children.
Over the years I have learned to toughen up. I still hesitate to step on a bug or kill a mouse. I rationalize it and do it but the hesitation is always there.
I finally accepted the fact that the death penalty is a necessary deterrent. In a better world, we would never have a reason to use it, but in this world It is just the acknowledgment that there is no purpose to be served by keeping some people alive. Try them and if they are guilty, execute them, sooner rather than later. They used to be taken outside and hung on the hanging tree outside of the Court House.
Satan’s side uses this against us. They use our own words to trap us into going easy on things that should never be tolerated in a civilized society. These same people who tell us we must not execute a murderer, turn right around and advocate killing an innocent baby in the most painful ways possible.
Jesus is the WORD.
Satan tempted Jesus using words. Jesus triumphed over Satan by using WORDS.
Words have meanings. We must take our country back by using WORDS.
Censorship is about silencing us.
President Trump said he would be our voice because we had no voice. That is true.
President Trump took our country back by refusing to play SJW – PC word games.
We have to learn to recognize the truth, speak it and never back down one inch.
Tolerance is a one-sided game Satan’s side plays with us. They never tolerate Christians.
I lived in S. CA for 25 years. When the SJW-PC people would start on me, I would listen quietly. There is no point arguing with them because what comes out of their mouth is like a recording. It is a tape they play because it has been etched into their gray matter by repetition and reinforcement. It does not make sense. It just makes noise.
When their tape would run out, I would ask something simple like:
“Cigarettes are bad, but you use Cocaine?”
“It is wrong to kill murderers but it is good to kill babies?”
“How can you be mad at God if there is no God?”
“If we are evolving, are we just failed experimental models to be thrown on the trash heap of history?”
They would get that NPC confused look and just walk away.
That is what Q is about.
Asking the right question throws our enemies into panic mode because they have never had an answer.
Satan is about creating doubt in our minds and silencing us.
When Jesus put God’s words into context and used them to answer Satan, Satan was silenced.
