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
Is about replacing
With a new government controlled
By you, the American People.Candidate Donald J. Trump
Also remember Wheatie’s Rules:
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- 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.
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.
AMEN! Thanks, good night, God bless, and see you in the morning, fighting-fit!!! 😀
And WILL PRAY for these candidates!!!
Sorry you’re under the weather, Syl!
By all means, get some good rest!
Sweet dreams…hope you feel better soon.
first thing I read this morning was yesterday’s thread to make sure you were okay after the storms! glad you were!!!
then I cruised to the rally thread–thanks for putting one up! thoroughly enjoy the rally threads!!!
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.
How are you wheatie? Hope all is well, God bless you ❤️
I’m fine, Nikki.
Thank you for your prayers and I’m sorry to make y’all worry.
It was getting bad…until a cool front arrived and tamed the storms a bit.
We love ya so we pray for your family, loved ones and the people in OK …. so glad to hear about the cool front tami g the storm 🙂❤️
Thanks Wheatie, a good night’s sleep seems to have done the trick!
hope you feel better soon Sylvia!!!
Thanks, MUCH better!
Thank you for reminding me, Sylvia. I hope you’re feeling better this morning!! ❤️

Thanks nikki, I feel much better this morning!
Oh 😮 … that’s real good to hear Sylvia .. 😊👍❤️‼️
Pray you feel better Sylvia we need you in this battle for our country.
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.
Just give me a nudge when your shovel needs a good sharpening again.
🙂 🙂 🙂
HA! Love it! The glory days of cinema, too! 😀
Mel Brooks could never make his movies in today’s climate.
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.
Okay, what did I miss…did someone post some porn?
Or even worse, some child porn?
Nope….the Wolf was indirectly answering a reply I made to him in the BACK TO CENSORSHIP thread from earlier today.
HA! No – just some beheading pictures on my Muslim censorship thread.
Having seen graphic violence used over and over as an excuse on DNC Twitter and Red Diaper YouTube to censor extremely important analysis like Thomas Wictor’s stuff, I am highly disinclined to EVER use it as an excuse for censorship.
I want free speech at levels that SCARE SOME PEOPLE AWAY. The community here, not its highly restrained “government” (me), will end up setting standards. This is the way America used to be, and where we need to return, in my opinion.
Appreciate the thoughtful commentary in the OP up top kicking us off today.
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.
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
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.
Oh and Thomas wictor doesn’t show gore gratuitously. His videos are instructional and analytical. Very interesting.
Every time I hear about Bataclan, I realize that Trump was right. ONE GOOD GUY with a small pistol could have ENDED IT. It just makes me furious that we have to put up with the illogic of the “gun-free” utopians who are SUCKERS for the criminal globalists who move the Muzz around like checkers on a board.
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
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
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.
I’ll get back off my soap box now before someone tells me to stfu.
Wait. What’s nsfw mean?
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.
WordPress suppresses the reply button at 7 indentations, per our settings, although people who get notifications on a comment (the two parties plus thread author) can reply in the notification itself, typically.
Thanks, I didn’t know that. Good morning!
Good morning! Er, night! Er, something like that! 😉
I don’t know how you do it…but I thank you!
Ahhh. Sorta like ggmc.-gotta go mother coming
Something like that. I think NSFW might have originated on the reddit boards.
Yes, I saw the pictures and quickly scrolled past them.
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.
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!!
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 🙂
There are certain things I can’t watch either. They are not always what people would expect! Everybody has to be honest with themselves about this. Sensitivity and innocence are things worthy of protection!
I am in that same boat. The things I won’t watch any more of are things I have already made strong convictions concerning.
Thank you, Aubergine! That is amazing testimony, not just to the TRUTH, but to the need to never SUPPRESS the truth.
One of the advanced tactics to dealing successfully with this, after DON’T TURN AWAY, will be COLD ANGER. It is LOGICAL THINKING. It is to expose ourselves to what gives us emotional imperative, but to THEN look at everything – EVEN that emotional imperative – with LOGIC. The emotional imperative may disappear, or it may even be strengthened, but it will not be allowed to RULE US by mere emotion.
This is how the “let’s you and him fight” of the RED-GREEN AXIS will end. Every time a Muslim hits us, bring the communist who AIDED and PROVOKED him to DEATH or JUSTICE. When BOMBS FELL on the WHITE HELMETS – that NETFLIX-CIA-OBAMA-RICE creation of our own wicked communist CIA elements, THAT was a moment of TRUE JUSTICE.
THIS is how we defeat and destroy the Red-Green Axis and even the CABAL behind THEM – by LOGICAL THINKING. Logic helps us examine the facts – FINDING THE MANIPULATIONS – moving responsibility UP THE CHAIN OF DECEPTION to the people who PULL THE STRINGS and DECEIVE THE GROUPS and individuals into COMPLIANT BEHAVIORS – often purely emotional.
The Q people and other patriots who “have it all” constantly refer to CRIMINALS behind what has happened. They avoid at all costs singling out the IDENTITY GROUPS used as SPEARS or SHIELDS.
THIS IS KEY. This is how we get past the SPEARS and SHIELDS of IDENTITY GROUPS that are used, deceived, prodded, and tricked into acting – often by their weakest but potentially controllable inclinations – or which can be used as SHIELDS of UNTOUCHABILITY.
The Cabal doesn’t throw rocks down the mountain to kill people. It tricks somebody else into backing up against a loose boulder to take a picture when the victim is directly below, coming up the trail.
THAT is what we are dealing with. Only LOGICAL THINKING, spurred by our HATRED OF INJUSTICE, will defeat these plans and intrigues.
So I HATE the people who commit these crimes. But by loving my enemies with LOGIC – looking for TRUTH that may partially exonerate them – that may even FREE THEM – I believe that we may END THE MADNESS.
KIWIWOOD may be the end of the cabal, if we are diligent in proving that THEY are responsible for the [probably fake] massacre that provoked much larger and deadlier REAL MASSACRES by THEIR CREATION – ISIS. THAT was a beautiful SOVIET PINCER. Tie that millstone around Hillary’s neck, and she goes UNDER THE OCEAN.
We now have HILLARY CLINTON, BARACK OBAMA, and JOHN PODESTA all linked to the Christchurch massacre. If they go down the drain for that one, half the Cabal goes with them.
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’
“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.”
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?
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
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.
Yes. That’s it. Circumvented the law but not a good look for a sc judge.
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.
Agreed. If Obama’s Brennan crew – OFF-THE-BOOKS CIA using Dennis Montgomery’s tools, prior to getting into power – if that team was automating data collection about every American using HAMR, and they were finding DIRT in that to gain leverage – BEFORE Obama was elected – and they continued to use this capability, in combination with Facebook GRAPH data connecting individuals – both DURING the Obama years and AFTER the Obama years – it is entirely possible that….
THE DNC ESSENTIALLY HAD ITS OWN NSA.
NOW – this fits in with my contention that the CIA Vault 7 Tools LEAK to Wikileaks was FAKE.
If I’m right that Assange was basically a TOOL of the cabal, who was used both for data release AND to create narratives, then this is how it worked…..
BRENNAN and the rogues supporting Obama and Hillary realized that they MIGHT lose the White House. They also realized that if they started relying heavily on a lot of CIA tools, while out of office, they risked PUNISHMENT for abusing hidden tools. SO – what better way to “give the CIA tools to themselves in the future”, than by LEAKING THEM and then being able to say THAT is where they got them?
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.
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.
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
CLEAN IT UP.
I really hope Q is right about 3 new detention centers. Makes me wonder if our anons have found them yet.
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.
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?
I would think that would depend on whether or not Ireland chose to charge him.
Why would Ireland have any influence on our government? The whole thing has a bad odor to it!
Another country bringing charges against a SCOTUS nominee – you don’t think that might work against him just a bit?
Why remove him when you’ve got a grip on his kids?
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
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!!!
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.
AMEN!!! Maximum UNMASKING.
Some pictures & videos of the tornado outbreak yesterday:
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:
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.
Not sure like is the right response. Yikes would be better
Looks like it’s drop a house on a witch weather. The demoncraps better play it safe.
holy cow! that looks huge!!! hope no one was hurt!
Haven’t heard of any serious injuries, yet.
Hopefully that will stay the case, as daylight comes and people can survey the damage.
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”…. 🙂
(Ducks flying clogs, poffertjes, and windmills…)
CUPPA!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!😂😂😂 Spitting Coffee…
Gil asked yesterday, “Anyone see this?”
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!
Highly suggest this video. Someone posted it a couple of days ago, and I took a peak. New stuff, and interesting.
“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.
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.
Mark Steyn does an interview with Gpeorge Papadopoulos. It has different information come out compared to the Dan Bongino interview.
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.
Could that be a coded message?
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.
Hmmm. I wonder if orders were given to interrupt.
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?
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.
My native speaking Russian wife says she does not think that Papa’s wife speaks with a Russian accent, FWIW.
She’s an Italian lawyer – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Papadopoulos
However – so far at least – Papadap has not been indicted like Manafort.
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.
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.
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.
Mark Steyn is no where near as bad as Urinalist Interuptus, the species found on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, FOX, BBC….
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?
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
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.
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

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?
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!
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.
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.
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.
“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.”
Bongino dog sits his mother in laws dog but he or his wife have allergies that is why he does not have one. He mentioned that before on a show. I am either pro or against Bongino I am neutral on him because it was not important to me.
On his show he is a little to theatrical and loud for my taste. He might try to hard or is stretched to far .
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.
Uh oh…sorry for the duplicate video.
I meant to include this one:
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.
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.
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.
Mehta’s a favorite of the ACLU.
Can I assume that this ruling will be challenged at a higher court?
oh yeah, pretty sure POTUS will appeal
He has appealed according to OANN.
Need to do a deep dive into those judges appointed by Obama.
I’m smelling a long term problem……
I sure would love to see a LOT of them brought up on charges for what ever and got rid of.
Think of the Smollett crap that went down. It STINKS of corruption.
Ah yes, just another one of our “New Americans” as Ann Corcoran says…Yes, Mr. Trump. Let’s keep bringing them in, let’s make it based on merit! We’ll still lose our country, just a little slower and on the legal side of things! /sarc/
But we can’t have any S. Afrikaaners here, oh no. We had to refuse them and they went to Russia.
Can’t be said enough:
How did all these millionaire congress weasels get so wealthy?
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…
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.
Not that those laws would ever stop most politicians from trading on their office.
Kamala Harris is easy.
Does anyone have a player piano? We now have an kinda antique one, that was restored… but boy howdy are they complicated…. They use air and tubes.. The one that we were gifted can be pumped by your feet so that it doesn’t even need electricity….
Last night we went downstairs to try out some new rolls (bought on Ebay) and the thing just sat there and refused to play….It took an hour of poking and wiggling doo hickies to tickle back to life… *sighs..
But when it does play, it is lovely…. and I have dug out my piano books to start playing myself…
LIie is in full swing now… summer Tennis,, piano, mini bike. On top of all that we have spygate, abortion laws, and 2020….
Be safe peeps… good job midnight shift…
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..
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/
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.
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,
Also, I don’t have a tablet so not sure if it’s different, I do everything on my Galaxy
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.
Oh, oh. I don’t know if “control F” is on an apple product, but there must be a similar function.
I found this “find on page” function for Ipads:
When I’m on my phone, as I am now, I use the option “request desktop site.” I have an android, but pretty sure iphones have that too.
I never tried that with this site before, it works well but makes it smaller to see on my phone
Yeah, I have to zoom in sometimes. Especially for likes…sausage fingers…lol
“Sausage fingers” by far the biggest obstacle in trying to use my phone for everything online. Takes forever to type but on the upside it keeps my comments short 😆
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 😮
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.
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. Hubby makes it all run right for me.
Careful ladypenguin, that screen will try and suck you in 📲 😉
LOL. I know, especially when I’m out and about, and decide to check in on Q-Tree.
I am still using a desk top from the Ordovician period. I also have a flip phone that I usually ignore… The last one I drove over with my tractor and the one before I crunched under the Dually Pk-up
The Brave browser (https://brave.com) may be the answer here. They were created in the aftermath of Mozilla/Firefox being taken over by SJWs.
Thanks wolf, trying it now. Just been so using firefox forever, it used to be the shit. This brave browser looks pretty good so far 👍
Firefox has gone to the dark side – blocking all KINDS of sites! It even blocked me from playing solitaire on my laptop from my hard drive! I got rid of it recently and went to Brave.
That also took care of my problem with watching YT videos – they work now!
Wolfie suggested Brave too and I just installed it. It seems really good, just wish I could figure out how to import my bookmarks 🤔
I was asked during the install about transferring my bookmarks – all were transferred.
Hmmm, didn’t see that option when loading on my android, maybe I’ll try it with the desktop then I can probably sync it to my device
Yeah, I can’t help you there – still use an old flip-phone! LOL – there should be something in the settings, perhaps?
We have TWO pump player pianos. You need the Mechanical Music Organization. (Or my Hubby)
We had both of ours rebuilt. Unfortunately our rebuilder died several years ago.
These are the guys Hubby really recommends:
There is a player piano at the Elkhorn Valley Museum, where I used to work, in Norfolk. It is almost impossible to find anyone nowadays who can fix them. Found a couple of repair services on-line – this one is in NY:
hmmm…always accuse others of what you yourself are doing, right?
“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.
Uh Oh! Cummings is in trouble.
IT BEGINS – Andrea – our first Atlantic sub-tropical system of the year – https://www.nhc.noaa.gov
Please, Dear Father GOD – protect us from another Category 5 storm like Michael was last year!
I’ll save a spot for you, GA/FL. You’re safe here.
I bet you do have some regular ‘sea gull’ customers fly in evacuating from the storms on the coast.
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. The local utility folks work so hard during hurricane season – restoring power and cleaning/hauling away limbs/trees. TONS – thousands of truck loads – of limbs/trees from all over this huge city.
My parents were in NOLA, one set of grandparents in Pensacola, but another set of grandparents up here, since the early 70’s. 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.
There can be no mystery about Why they come to Western Countries.
At the 1:19 mark in this video, there is a big banner that says:
“The Followers of Mohammed Will Conquer America”
We have to deport these savages, back to where they came from!
Perhaps GOD is giving us in Western civilization – an opportunity – a double opportunity – first to repent and return to GOD, and second, to witness of the most excellent Way of Love, Truth and Life to the hordes of Islamists flocking our way.
mob of Somalia teenagers go after people with hammers and bars…just one person with a gun could have dropped these arrogant POS to the ground!
this is Omar’s district AGAIN
Islamism is barbarianism. It is conditioned inhumanity, licentiousness and criminality.
Wanna bet Omar will somehow justify their actions?
Yep…that looks like another ‘Air-Q’ to me, too:
yup, looks like one to me too…
btw, I sign all my emails to POTUS with WWG1WGA…
MOAB is a-comin’
Oh . . .
MOAB is a-comin’,
This week it’s for sure.
MOAB is a-coming,
Q’s words weren’t obscure.
Why don’t ‘cha hurry hurry hurry home?
Why don’t ‘cha hurry hurry hurry home?
MOAB is a-comin’, log on to QTree;
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.
Oh . . .
MOAB is a-comin’,
The truth bomb draws near.
MOAB is a-comin’,
Why don’t ‘cha hurry hurry hurry home?
Why don’t ‘cha hurry hurry hurry home?
MOAB is a-comin’, log on to QTree;
Popcorn at the ready, the truth is set free!
That’s beautiful, Carl!
I love it! Well done!
Born in NOLA during WWII – I know that song/tune quite well. We used to sing it at the top of our lungs on our little swing sets while swinging as high as we could.
We would follow that up, appropriately, with a rousing version of ‘Jambalaya’!
Well, since you’re from NOLA . . .
Comey and Clapper, Bozo and Brennan, they just all big liars;
Outta the fryin’ pan right into the fire.
Talkin’ ’bout, hey now, hey now, RICO, RICO, they pay.

Talkin’ ’bout, hey now, hey now, RICO, RICO, they pay.
All them cops gonna take ‘em away, they be locked away.

They think they so smart now, then they plans backfire.
Talkin’ ’bout, hey now, hey now, RICO, RICO, they pay.

Things they not what they seem, RICO, RICO, they pay.
They be gone, just a bad dream, in that jail they stay.

This is a different or newer generation than the songs I knew growing up.
The song’s a bit newer (1965) but the altercations between competing Indian groups at Mardi Gras, I think, has a long history.
Mardi Gras of my childhood = adults gone bonkers/wild. Scary to young child.
The one thing I’d like to see is a “to the tune of…” on these. I find I rarely recognize them, even when (later, based on someone’s comment) it turns out to be a song I do know.
In this case, I have no idea what it could be, still.
Steve, I think RICO RICO is to the tune of “Shrimpboats are a’comin’ there’s dancing tonight.” IIRC
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.
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.
Thanks for the affirmation D.P.,
not often enough I hear “He’s one of the good guys.”
Thank you for the information, DP — much appreciated.
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.
And discussion about the Catholic Church is fascinating.
Umm, Raymond Arroyo made his name on EWTN. Laura Ingraham just borrows him.
I like him!
Yeah, he’s been around at least since before Mother Angelica died. He was always live at the March for Life. Great guy.
