Dear MAGA: 20190523 Open Topic

This METHINKS THE DEMS BE IN A WEE BIT OF TROUBLE THURSDAY 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.

Think about what is happening now. Think about what just happened today. POTUS has CALLED OUT THE DEMS for their SICK FAILED ILLEGAL RADICAL LEFTIST IF NOT COMMUNIST IMPEACHMENT GAME, for which they were caught red-handed. He WILL NOT MAKE A DEAL while they keep it up – and they CAN’T QUIT.

Two articles are very helpful to see this.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/for-democrats-the-partys-over/ar-AABKzyO?ocid=spartanntp

Here is the beginning:

If the Democrats are really tempted by impeachment, bring it on. Since the day after the 2016 election they have been threatening this, placing their chips on the Russian-collusion fantasy and then on the phantasmagoric charade of obstruction of justice. The attorney general accurately gave the ingredients of the offense of obstruction of justice in his four-page summary of the Mueller report: a corrupt act for corrupt purposes in contemplation of a legal proceeding. The attorney general, William Barr, the then deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, and the Justice Department counsel concurred that none of the elements was present in the conduct of the president as recounted by Mueller. The dream died, except in the febrile imagination of the Democrats, who launched an unfounded attack on the attorney general’s integrity. Everyone knows that the prospects of a successful move to impeach and remove the president from office by two thirds of the Senate finding that he has been proved beyond a reasonable doubt to have committed high crimes and misdemeanors, as the Constitution requires, are less than zero.

Conrad Black, May 22, 2019

What ensues here is a BEAUTIFUL HISTORY LESSON on MODERN IMPEACHMENT. Not only does Conrad Black put WATERGATE in proper perspective – he also puts the Reagan “scandals” and Clinton impeachment in proper perspective.

So who is this guy, who was just recently PARDONED BY TRUMP? The following link will begin to answer your questions, but remember – it’s still FAKE NEWS.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-black-idUSKCN1SM01G

But then go here if you want the REAL story.

https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/statement-press-secretary-regarding-executive-clemency-lord-conrad-m-black-crossharbour/

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency (Full Pardon) for Lord Conrad M. Black of Crossharbour.

In 2007, prosecutors alleged that Lord Black had committed several acts of mail fraud and obstruction.  The Supreme Court of the United States, however, largely disagreed and overturned almost all charges in his case.  He nevertheless spent 3.5 years in prison.

An entrepreneur and scholar, Lord Black has made tremendous contributions to business, as well as to political and historical thought.  Formerly the owner of the world’s then-third largest newspaper, he is also the author of several notable biographies and works of history.  These include comprehensive biographies of Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt and Richard M. Nixon, a complete history of Canada, and an impressive essay evaluating how the world would have been different had Japan not attacked Pearl Harbor.

Lord Black’s case has attracted broad support from many high-profile individuals who have vigorously vouched for his exceptional character.  This impressive list includes former Secretary of State Dr. Henry A. Kissinger, Sir Elton John, Rush Limbaugh, the late William F. Buckley, Jr., and many additional notable individuals.  Consistent with his distinguished reputation for helping others, while in prison, Lord Black served as a tutor for 150 students, helping them achieve their educational goals.  In light of these facts, Mr. Black is entirely deserving of this Grant of Executive Clemency.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, May 15, 2019

We now go to a SECOND article of interest.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/nancy-pelosi-is-making-a-big-mistake-on-impeachment/ar-AABKyFc?ocid=spartanntp

AND I QUOTE….

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is sitting on a political powder keg. With a President trying to goad her into launching impeachment, fulfilling the textbook definition of abusing power, she faces growing pressure from her caucus to let the House vote on starting the process. On Wednesday Democrats met behind closed doors once again to discuss the situation. 

FAKE NEWS CNN, SOME LEFTIST HACK

NOW – you might read that headline and first paragraph, and think that this FAKE NEWS “journalist”, Julian Zelizer, CNN Political Analyst (no relation to CNN Democrat Partisan Brian Stetler, a.k.a. Baby Beluga) is WARNING Pelosi about the dangers of attempting their little communist impeachment game against President Trump.

AND YOU WOULD BE WRONG.

In fact – UNBELIEVABLY – this CNN “political analyst” is saying that Nancy Pelosi should NOT CHICKEN OUT – that she SHOULD begin impeachment.

Whatever.

The FAKE NEWS cannot be fixed. They can only be REPLACED.

TIME TO NUKE THESE COMMIE SPUDS.

#DECLAS = #WAR

Many, many people that we meet live their lives unnoticed and unrecognized by us, living in the background quietly and meekly but, in the aggregate, doing far more of the Lord’s work than those who are standing up in front to be recognized.
The Little Sparrow
I’m like a little sparrow
As I flit along my way;
Both unseen and unnoticed
During each and every day.
Life is full of little things
And I guess that I’m just one,
Helping others when I can
Until each day is done.
I’m happy to let others
Be in front and take the lead.
I don’t want recognition
As I do my little deeds.
Each day I walk along my path
But not to be seen by men.
Seeing someone else’s smile
Makes me smile, time and again.
God saved me only by His grace
And started my life anew:
Made in Christ to do good works
That God prepared for me to do.
God’s eye is on the sparrow,
So I know He watches me,
And I’m content to serve the One
Who died to set me free.
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Oh, no!
Not the dread red shoes. Q has had several posts exposing the red shoe crowd.
Thanks to the cultural Marxists, every meaning in our culture is subject to corruption or redefinition.

So true. I didn’t even think of that, I was just humming along with the song in my head.

I figured 🤔that’s what you did, and that’s why I added the last line to the previous comment. 🙂

Our VSG tweeted this a few hours ago.
Notice how he says…”Can be easily proven.”

“Can be easily proven.” <— Does this mean that Potus has video of the meeting?
I hope so!

President Trump gave them more than enough rope,enjoy the show it’s only Wednesday.

These are historical times we are living in and very few realize just how magnificent it really is.
It’s a GREAT day to be alive,goon night and God bless you all,I love this place.

ladypenquin

Never in our lifetime, even with President Reagan who had our interests at heart, have we’ve seen such moves.
I’ve always thought we needed a George Washington – IMO, POTUS is our modern day George Washington. Against all odds, Washington succeeded.
In the meantime, it’s wonderful to see this man not bend, let alone break in the face of these enemies. We’re lucky if one such individual comes along in several generations – yet, here he is.

grandmaintexas

Yes, I believe the hand of God is on him to help accomplish this great work of defeating evil in this generation. It’s a Big Job, and the poem about the sparrow upthread shows we are all a part of it. What a time to be alive! It is like all my dreams for our nation are beginning to come true. God, keep us humble, keep us safe, and keep us vigilant!

Coldeadhands

A measure of George Washington and a dash of Andrew Jackson with a big dollop of DJ Trump!

Rodney Short

Sylvia Avery

Wolf, what a great job knitting together this whole story for your thread. It’s really good!
I hope people take the time to read all of The Party’s Over. I was really fascinated by the paragraph or two that discusses Watergate. It was MOST illuminating.

Tonawanda

This is a perfect summary of Nixon versus Trump with respect to their respective take-downs (wow, I originally wrote “fake-downs” – – talk about Freudian accuracy).

TakeBackOurRepublic

My husband is about halfway through a book called Watergate: The Hoax by Ashton Gray. Quoted from his book “There was no “first break-in” at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate on 28 May 1972 as claimed by Liddy, Hunt, McCord, Baldwin and their CIA-trained pack of Cuban liars, now were there any failed “attempts” on 26 and 27 May 1972, as they also claimed. It is, and always has been, a lie. There is not now, and never has been, a single scrap of evidence to corroborate their stories of the alleged “first break-in” and prior failed attempts. They only “corroborated” each other.”
They really thought they were going to pull off Spygate just like the did Watergate.

grandmaintexas

I’m going to start buying some Conrad Black books. Need to read a REAL HISTORIAN!

Sylvia Avery

I wondered about how he worded that, too.

Thanks michael, those were great. I love the Trump 2020 video and watch it every time I come across it because it makes me feel so good. And how adorbs was the short video “Mr. Trump, are you Batman?” That was terrific!!!

WOLFIE !!!!!!!!!!!!!
First of all, so happy for the “Methinks” mention…
GrandmaInTexas will be thrilled you used it. Terrible, terrible I say… that she was verbally abused on another site for using it.
You knocked this one out of the park Wolfie… loved the extra info on Conrad Black. We learn so much here at the Qtree. Don’t know how you manage to juggle so many balls and still come up with interesting articles. Didn’t get an opportunity earlier today to commend you for your prescience in your opening paragraph…
…”This WE ARE ON THE WAY TO JUSTICE WEDNESDAY open thread…”
I’m beginning to think you have a crystal ball 😉

…even states of mind became “force multipliers”:
“perpetual optimism is a force multiplier” (Ret. US General Colin Powell, 2006)

ladypenquin

Exactly. One cannot dwell in pessimism and be successful.

Alison

Oh Boy is THAT ever true. It is why I left our other tree. Optimism was routinely mocked and dismissed as foolishly trusting some plan. WTHe$$?
Not here – we’ve got T3 and Michael reminding us we wear the Armor of God; we’ve got Felice bringing the most comprehensive fact-based newswraps; we’ve got BakoCarl gracing us with heartfelt poetry; we’ve got Wolfie to lead the charge; we’ve got PHC to remind us to appreciate every day together, and we are a multitude a sparrows flitting in and out with tidbits of truth, humor, righteousness and hope.
Life is Good; God is Great; and President Trump is in the White House. 🇺🇸🇺🇸✝️✝️💖💖

bflyjesusgrl

Amen. Well said Miss Allison!!😍😍

Aubergine

Perpetual optimism has made my life a blessing, always, in the face of many an adversity.
One day, talking to my youngest, I commented on what a blessed and easy life I had had. Knowing my history, he looked at me like I had lost my mind!
But everything is perspective. I know others whose childhoods were worse. I’ve never had a terminally ill child, but friends of mine have. I had abusive marriages, but I never ended up in the hospital. I know women who did.
Optimism and gratitude have carried me above life’s difficulties. I highly recommend cultivating those qualities in yourself.

Phoenix, I was absolutely floored to see it used by Wolf! If I had not been sleeping last night, I would’ve been so pumped up I wouldn’t have been able to go to bed!

wheatietoo

Wolf, here’s that “blood in the streets” video that Loretta Lynch did a couple of years ago.
In contemplating the idea that she’s been MK’d…I notice now, how she is blinking her eyes so much in this video.
Didn’t notice this before:
[youtube

.
Senate Democrats at the time, called this video…”Inspirational”…and posted it on their FB pages.
🤨😠
They were trying to get their brainwashed minions to go out and riot in the streets.

Sylvia Avery

Thanks for posting this video Wheatie. It creeped me out and alarmed me the first time I saw it and it still affects me that way. So obviously intended as a call to arms.

phoenixRising

Since Twitter banned Michael TWICE, I don’t have a source for POTUS’ daily schedule…
Found this info on the week-end, it’s lengthy… but the info is interesting, to me anyway 😉
“… SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL: Great. Thanks. And thanks for dialing in this afternoon, everybody. So the President and the First Lady will be traveling to Japan this Saturday, May 25th, and returning to the U.S. on Tuesday, May 28th.
As Japan’s first state guests following the enthronement of His Majesty Emperor Naruhito on the first of May, this visit by the President comes really at a historic moment in Japan and it demonstrates that the alliance between the United States and Japan has never been stronger.
The alliance serves as the cornerstone of peace and security in the Indo-Pacific region. The United States’ and Japan’s shared vision for a free and open Indo-Pacific serves as the foundation for a global partnership that strengthens security, prosperity, and a rules-based order around the world.
After his arrival on Saturday night, the President is going to meet informally with Prime Minister Abe on Sunday, and also join him that day in watching a sumo wrestling match.
On Monday, the President will have a state call on Their Majesties, the Emperor and Empress, followed by bilateral meetings with Prime Minister Abe and his team.
That evening, the Imperial Family will host the President and the First Lady at a state banquet.
The President and the First Lady will bid farewell to Their Majesties in the morning, on Tuesday, and then they will proceed — the President will proceed to the Yokosuka U.S. Naval Base where he will honor our troops for Memorial Day.”

Article appeared May 28, 2018 … almost a year ago.

We still haven’t got the story on Sam Clovis either.
How many more? I really can’t remember them all.

daughnworks247

Sam Clovis is distantly related. Good guy. He’s the one who delivered Iowa, helped POTUS in the very beginning. Heavy set guy. Should have been Deputy Sec of Agriculture but was targeted for destruction by Mueller. Smear job, and he could not afford the lawyers.

OFA removed from BO’s website???? Huh. I wonder what THAT’S all about. Are we supposed to, I don’t know, just forget that this traitor has his brownshirts out there?

Sylvia Avery

That’s probably a pretty shrewd guess. I think it is significant that BO is apparently trying to distance himself from his own baby. And it always comes down to money in the end, somehow.

I think I will add this to the Poetry Tree!

Will do!
Heheh.

bakocarl

Hey Wheats, I think the poem wolfie wanted first was “The Q Tree – Beginnings”, but I had to put it down the thread after I discovered The Poetry Tree. Perhaps you have the power to move things about a bit . . .

wheatietoo

Uh oh…well, sorry Carl, I don’t have the powers to do that.
It’s good where it is, I think…and it has your comment with the additional quotes, that you added.
That makes it way more special than it would’ve been if I had posted it.
🙂

Sylvia Avery

Wheatie, your idea for The Poetry Tree was inspired. As usual, you found the perfect pictures to go with the thread.
I really love it!
And how cool that GA/FL saved poems from OT to post here! It provides us continuity with our past.
So happy bakocarl is here and we get to enjoy his poems and love that others have shared things they wrote or especially like. It’s just a great idea and so typical of this place!!!!

Good to have that confirmation, even though there’s no surprise there.

I apologize if someone has already mentioned this but here I go anyway.
If you haven’t read this speech transcript, you are missing out on a declaration of war by AG Barr. He is as much a gift from God as DJT is IMO.
https://www.justice.gov/opa/speech/attorney-general-william-p-barr-delivers-remarks-american-law-institute-nationwide

Sylvia Avery

Thanks, this is great! I am interested in all things Barr-related. He is a key figure so I try to read everything I can about him. Definitely a gift from God, I agree.

daughnworks247

Fascinating and meaningful remarks by Atty General Barr on the problem of courts issuing nationwide injunctions, the problem of the judiciary becoming political, and the posture of “shop (a judge) til the statute drops”.
No nationwide injunctions for 175years.
Only 27 in all of the 20th century.
President Trump has had 37 – to stymie his agenda.

Chris

daughnworks247 ,
.. (with minor modiifications)
“No nationwide injunctions for 175years.
Only ” 27 ” in all of the 20th century.
President Trump has had ” 37 ” in TWO years – to stymie his agenda.”
.. and with that perspective the obvious question is framed.. why the disparity in numbers??
Why the sudden increase?
JUDICIAL OBSTRUCTION
..politics of course !!
Great point !!

daughnworks247

Barr makes a great argument here.
Over 1600 injunctions brought against a specific Agriculture Tax in Roosevelt’s New Deal. But the court took it as an injunction against a single entity — and charged the other 70K who owed the tax.
It was never considered that one judge could impose a nationwide injunction. It defeats English law and does not allow the normal process of allowing differences to percolate up to a higher court.

ladypenquin

What I love about AG Barr is that sanctimonious prigs like Brit Hume can’t attack him for his “behavior” – Barr doesn’t come across as the brass knuckles fighter that POTUS is – no, he is simply a very quiet, calm gentlemanly, grandfatherly type fellow who has this rapier which slices and dices, and then the person looks down and sees they’re hemorrhaging all their blood.
Oh, and that remark of Hume’s I’m referencing:
https://twitter.com/LisaMei62/status/1131394771040260103

michaelh

Trump’s “behavior” is NOT the problem.
The MCM has been FORCING this narrative of Trump’s bad “behavior” on us since 2015.
WHILE THEY COVERED for every single Dem from BHO to HRC to Biden and many many others. They never report on their behavior.
Every time I talk to someone about Trump who is seeing what he’s doing they always feel like they have to preface “I don’t agree with his style”, “I don’t agree with his behavior”, “I wish he wouldn’t tweet”…
… It’s all a FAUX OUTRAGE, a manufactured narrative by the MCM that they are replaying over and over again. They are always slanting and reinterpreting every cotton pickin’ word POTUS says and putting it in the worst light possible, and then like a broken record (or a glitchy youtube ad stuck on repeat for the kiddos reading this) they put it on repeat, non-stop!
Why? Only one purpose.
They are trying to make Trump seem un-Presidential.
They are trying to undermine him for 2020 any way they can. If they can swing a half a percent on the PERCEPTION that VSGDJT is un-Presidential they can affect the 2020 election in the direction they want.
The MCM are beyond disgusting. These people are sick.
And yet this crap is working b/c even people who are very positive on Trump still feel that they have to preface any remarks with some distancing from his “behavior” or his “tweets”!
These PC lies are powerful – but only b/c so many people let these lies stand unchallenged and allow the lies to control their thinking and actions.
I wish more people would unplug from the MCM Matrix. They’d have more creational time on their hands, would suffer from less depression/outrage/mental health trauma, and we could finally break the back of the MCM complex.

Sylvia Avery

I saw that tweet of Brit’s. It made me SO angry I was babbling about it last night at dinner.
I used to like Brit. His problem is he’s an elitist. He’s old school establishment RINO. Apparently his delicate sensibilities are troubled by PDJT’s “rough edges.” Well, he can stick his sensibilities.

ladypenquin

It really got me too. Rush played a clip of Hume’s today, speaking almost favorably about Mayor “Pete” – I was aghast! Hume essentially was giving legitimacy to a guy who is radically outside the mainstream. It’s because people like Hume do this is why the Left succeeds. Hume has to be called out for his betrayal of all that’s decent and moral in this country. Politics be damned. It’s the Humes of this country who have enabled the enemy to take us from within. Good did not stand up to Evil – but he’ll keep getting DC cocktail party invites.

Sylvia Avery

Well said, LP. I’ve been gobsmacked by Brit Hume’s enthusiasm for “Mayor Pete,” who, when I listen to him, sounds like he is spewing cliched lefty nonsense but with a certain smooth polish reminiscent of BO. Gah! Spare me from that stuff!

abstain

Attorney General Barr lays out the problems of nationwide injunctions very well vis a vis the Constitution, historical English common law, the structure of our courts, and the confidence of the people in their system of justice. This was an important speech, and the General (love that) implores his colleagues to consider these problems.
I find myself craving a solution. It seems it will be left up to the judges to restrain each other, and I doubt that that will be enough.

nikkichico7

Bookmarked .. 😉👍❤️‼️

We finally watched White Squall. I like to watch movie credits. I noticed it was partially filmed in Malta. And one of the members of the crew in Malta who got screen credit was someone named Johann Mifsud.
I about fell off my chair. Malta + Mifsud in a Q mythology movie? Wow. What are the odds!
I’m not suggesting anything. I’ve never been to Malta, and while I’ve never heard the surname Mifsud before it might be like Smith or Jones in the US. I just thought it was striking!

Sylvia Avery

Those guys at 8chan would be all over that, wouldn’t they? Or probably already have done so!
It was just so….jarring to see that name in the section for credits for shooting in Malta. I looked at IBDN to make sure I saw what I thought I saw, but it wasn’t on the website.
So I backed the recording up and looked at the credits again. Yep. There it is.

TheseTruths

Interesting. I found this article about common surnames in Malta. Mifsud is not in the top 10, but is mentioned.
Why most Maltese share the same 100 surnames
https://www.timesofmalta.com/articles/view/20140209/local/Why-most-Maltese-share-the-same-100-surnames.506018
Notice who else’s surname is here (caps emphasis mine):
“By the late middle ages, the majority of typical Maltese surnames were already well established – not only such obviously Semitic ones such as Abdilla, Agius, Asciak, Bajada, Bugeja, Buhagiar, Borg, Busuttil, BUTTIGIEG, Caruana, Cassar, Chetcuti, Ebejer, Farrugia, Fenech, Micallef, MIFSUD, Saliba, Zerafa and Zammit, but many others which are clearly of European extraction…”

churchmouse

Thank you very much for the link.
That is a fascinating article.
Hope everyone finds time to read it.

grandmaintexas

And isn’t it very, very interesting that Pope Francis took over the Knights of Malta a couple years ago, and installed his boys in that venerable and now ruined institution? I believe lots and lots of money floats around and through Malta…

abstain

Ha. I found the same article, and was about to post my comment, which was almost exactly the same as yours.
I wondered where Buttigieg came from.

Sylvia Avery

OH, that’s right! Buttplug’s Commie father is Maltese.
Honestly. Malta???? What are the odds!

Covadonga

The small island nation also suffers today from an increasing and baleful Islamic supremacist influence.
For centuries the Knights of St. John and other armed Christian organizations had famously kept that element out.

Aubergine

I did a search for people born in Malta between 1940 and 2000, and I got quite a few results.
Not like Smith or Jones, but not uncommon, either.

Sylvia Avery

Wow, cool Aubergine! I’m sure it is only a coincidence that a Mifsud would have a credited role in the crew of that movie, but to my American ears it is a very usual name so it just stuck out. But being a common name pretty well explains it.

bakocarl

Johann Mifsud is listed as a Special Effects Welder (Malta Unit). Probably just some guy from Malta where the name is not rare.

Sylvia Avery

I expect you’re right.

Sylvia Avery

The polls have opened in the UK. May God bless those voters who want to break away from the tyranny of the EU globalists and get each one of them out to vote for Brexit safely!

daughnworks247

Exciting day ahead!

amwick

Yes… and on top of all of that.. we are going out to lunch!!! Now that is a biggie. 🤔😄
We eat out, well, close to never.

churchmouse

Hope you can make an afternoon of it! Have a great time!

amwick

Oh TY… this is a cool restaurant, I have mentioned before. It is called the Universal Joint, it is a gas station that was repurposed. They cleaned it up, but left the inside pretty gas station looking…

churchmouse

Please update us afterwards. Sounds great!

bakocarl

I wouldn’t try the chili. They probably had a real good reason for situating in a gas station . . . think Blazing Saddles.

churchmouse

Thank you very much, Sylvia, for thinking of and praying for us.
It’s a beautiful day here: sunny and, for us, warm (70 degrees).
A beautiful day for the Brexit Party!

I just put up our Poetry Tree thread.
It’s a place for us to repost the wonderful Poetry that our talented Treepers post here.
That way…we will have a place to see them again, without hunting for them.
I would ask your help in rounding up any that you may remember, and adding them to the Poetry Tree thread…as you have time.
😊👩‍💻👨‍💻

Ooops…I meant to add the link to the Poetry Tree thread:

Oh no…has she checked in lately?
I hope she’s okay!

Wheatie, I don’t recall seeing her post this evening. I just sent up a quick prayer for her.

Jefferson City is about mid-state. Is not DP in St Louise..???

As Sylvia mentioned…today’s the day for the Brexit Vote in the UK.
Some tweets from Nigel:

.
Sylvia had posted that second tweet/video in the previous Open Thread…but I thought I would post it again, for those who may not have seen it.
These videos that Nigel & the Brexiteers are making, are really good and have good production values.
Love the music too!
👍
These videos are remarkably similar to the ones that our Trump White House Team are making.
Makes me wonder if Nigel got a bit of mentoring from our VSG?
🤓🤔😄

Sylvia Avery

You have such a good eye for the videos. I had noticed on that earlier video that it was really, really good like the Trump vids. There’s a similarity in the style, I think. Powerful!!

wheatietoo

Yes, there is definitely a similarity…and yes, powerful!
I am also very glad to see that Nigel has some tough-looking body guards!

churchmouse

Thank you very much, Wheatie! Greatly appreciated.

Tonawanda

There really is a Trump, cutting edge style to these videos. The cuts are quick but the images flow together perfectly, telling a story which is unmistakable in meaning with no words or very few words.
And the story is told in a very LOGICAL way, with a mixture of factual, inspirational, and negative contrast. They leave no times to dwell on any particular detail, but leave an overall impression which has a very deep appeal.
I want to make a relevant comment on VSG’s use of words, and his vocabulary. I have not seen anyone comment on this aspect of Trump’s communication style.
VSG self-consciously avoids using specific descriptions and explanations. Things are “great” or “terrible” or “very dishonest” or “well respected” etc. People are “very bad” or “very good.” Trump CHOOSES the more general, broader word over the more specific, pointed word.
There is a deliberate lack of eloquence or verbal sharpness. And yet VSG paints exactly the picture he wants us to see.
IMO VSG does this to establish a general plane of discourse not susceptible to getting bogged down in the details. VSG has the confidence that WE are capable of filling in the details for ourselves. In part, he is taking the lumps out, but he is also creating less of an irrelevant target.
I know I can describe this better than I am, but maybe someone else can better describe what I mean.
Anyway, VSG’s speeches in their own way are very much like the Trump-style videos.

“The idea that anyone ever nominated by a serious American political party would collude with a foreign power to rig a presidential election is insane.”

Clearly Mr. Conrad Black is not up to speed.
It may be insane, but that is EXACTLY what the Devilrats did.

Not only did the Devilrat Party nominate Hussein twice, but then the Devilrat Party nominated CLINTON too, and Hussein and Clinton BOTH colluded with multiple foreign powers to rig and steal the 2016 presidential election.
Where in the world has Mr. Black been?
Did he just get out of a prison with no news from the outside world for the last 2+ years?

ozzytrumpster

I think he’s being careful with his language. Note exactly what he said. The implication that if they did they were not a serious political party.
Which only leaves criminal

_____________________
I don’t know…
He’s speaking in historical context, referencing “Aaron Burr or a third-party naif such as Henry Wallace”.
Historically speaking, and to our nation’s great misfortune, the Democrat Party has been a serious political party.
Seriously racist, seriously criminal, seriously treasonous, seriously Marxist, among others.
But certainly serious, in historical context.
There were other things in his article that sounded completely ‘off target’ or not understanding the things we discuss here every day, too.

ozzytrumpster

I think he was being derogatory and ironic with the word serious but also see your pov

churchmouse

It’s British nuance.
He knows exactly what’s going on.

scott467

“It’s British nuance.
He knows exactly what’s going on.”
_______________
Then I suspect you and ozzytrumpster are right.
But that wasn’t the only thing that seemed to not make sense.
Conrad Black: “The Republican congressional leaders sat on their hands to see if the leader none of them had supported would be impeached,”
________________
That’s not exactly so. First, the congress criminals did a lot more than sit on their hands, they (Ryan, McConnell) actively opposed the president at every turn.
Second, since the RINOs controlled the House and Senate at that time, there could not even BE any impeachment without RINO Never-Trump traitor assistance.
.
Conrad Black: “President Truman determined in reference to the House Un-American Affairs Committee, and President Eisenhower stated in reference to the various Joseph R. McCarthy hearings, that they would not tolerate any federal executive-branch employee’s being subpoenaed about any advice they gave the president, that they would accept and honor no such subpoenas, and that anyone who responded to such subpoenas would be fired at once.
This was established pre-Watergate practice and is sound law. No one should imagine that Nadler is more virtuous than McCarthy or the other red-baiters.”
______________
When is a red-baiter not a red-baiter?
When the Communists really ARE infiltrating our government, and Hollywood, and our schools, etc.
As it turns out, after the fall of the Soviet Union and the release of Soviet documents, McCarthy was RIGHT.
McCarthy was trying to SAVE our NATION from exactly what has happened to us in the intervening years, the wholesale corruption of our government and our country by Marxists and Communists.
Does Mr. Black not know this? Why else would he compare Sen. McCarty to slimeball Nadler?

churchmouse

About the RINOs, well, he wrote what he believed to be true.
McCarthy, for better or worse, has a very low reputation in Europe.
I can’t see getting so worked up about Conrad Black. He approaches things from a European perspective.
Who cares? I don’t.

ladypenquin

Remember he is British/Canadian – even some of their words have different meaning than ours. Yesterday, I read his personal account of getting the pardon phone call from POTUS. It’s clear Black knows all about a corrupted government, and the power of such corruption – ie. it’s in their law enforcement agencies and the judiciary.
Black will be careful to not only give fodder to the Lefties to use against our POTUS, but he may not want to give away anything that he knows (being an historian and a very smart man).

Has Churchmouse checked in yet?
Woke up this morning thinking about him.

Hello, I’m here, Daughn!
Thanks for checking in. Can hardly wait to vote! 🙂
Busy day for me. Will have more time tomorrow, I hope.

He’s here!!!!!!!!!

daughnworks247

Churchmouse, nnonoooo, you can’t leave! We will wait for word from you.

I’m not going anywhere, friend.
My commenting time is limited today, though. Must sign off for now. I might check in later tonight but, more likely, tomorrow.
Have a good day!

daughnworks247

We understand, of course. Please know, we wish we were sitting on your shoulder today! Exciting times!

churchmouse

Wow! Thank you!
I watched two late night news programmes yesterday. Both presenters said that this is an unprecedented EU election in Britain. Not only is May in very hot water now, but the Leader of the House, Andrea Leadsom, resigned yesterday afternoon.
She said she could not announce bringing Theresa May’s revised bill (same thing as before, but with a proviso for a second referendum) before the House today. Leadsom said the bill goes so far against her Leave principles that she cannot have anything to do with it. She will remain as an MP but no longer in the Cabinet.
She was a very good Leader of the House, and even Labour MPs appreciated her efforts for all MPs (e.g. bringing proxy votes to the House for members who are pregnant or ill).
She worked tirelessly on participating on plans to refurbish the Palace of Westminster, where both Houses meet. It desperately needs renovation. I am glad I was able to watch her ably lead the discussion on it in Parliament on Tuesday. She said that it is as dire a situation as Notre-Dame (before the fire).

Pat Frederick

absolutely churchmouse…check in when and if you can to let us know what’s what!!

ladypenquin

I’m so excited about Nigel Farage surging back like this – had thought he had walked away from it all, and yet now he’s Brexit’s Donald Trump. 🙂 Yay.

churchmouse

I thought he would be back if necessary. 🙂

ladypenquin

Oh, Churchmouse! Yes, he was needed! I remember being disappointed that he was stepping away – yet there he is – burning down the rot which has overtaken the UK. Just read that May is resigning. Good riddance, right? May the Brexit topple the globalists – take back your country!

churchmouse

Thank you very much for your support, which is greatly appreciated!
To be fair, it was correct for Nigel to step away after the referendum result and May subsequently taking the helm.
I really hope we get a Leaver as our new PM who can come up with a better plan, lead the charge and get us out. No Deal is fine by me — and what I thought we were going to get, until last summer.
Many of our MPs seem to have Stockholm Syndrome.

Tornado Watch in effect across MO…until 6:00 am CDT.
Looks like it takes in the edge of STL, which is where our Deplorable Patriot is located.
Stay safe, DePat!

Sad news…sounds like there have been some fatalities:
😩😞

wheatietoo

Correction…that Tornado Watch map above shows the watch going *across* St Louis.
I was confusing it with this one that I had just seen, which has obviously been revised:

wheatietoo

Night time tornadoes are the worst.
This clip shoes how scary they can be…because it’s difficult to tell where they are and what direction they are going:

wheatietoo

Another night time clip…at the 0:42 mark, you get a glimpse of the tornado:

wheatietoo

This line of storms was still throwing down tornadoes as it left OK.
This is one that touched down last night just before dark, in NE corner of the state:
https://twitter.com/BlakeNaftel/status/1131358139922735107

So the takeaway is…this line of storms is capable of spinning tornadoes even on the tail end of it.

Covadonga

Modi wins reelection, and did he ever!
Indian newscasters have already used the word ‘tsunami’ to describe the results.
His BJP (Bharatiya Janata Parti – lit. “Indian People’s Party) and small allied parties together won over 340 seats out of a total 542 in the Lok Sabha (lower house of the Parliament), and possibly over 350.
The wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing Congress Party, (traditionally India’s largest party, which had led the nation to independence from Britain, only to entangle it in an alliance with the Soviet Union, and which is still headed by relatives of one-time dictator Indira Gandhi), and its allied parties won fewer than 95.
To see what a humiliation this result is for Congress, consider that various independent parties – aligned neither with BJP or Congress – won a combined total of about 105 seats.
Modi’s BJP, by contrast, will hold an absolute majority of almost 300 seats all by itself, even before its allies are counted. If I understand correctly, this is the greatest majority any party has ever held in the Lok Sabha, and certainly the highest total held by any non-Congress party.
Let’s hope this “Saffron Wave” election will now propel India into even greater heights of prosperity, and into an improved military and diplomatic footing vis-a-vis China.

Covadonga

First time in Indian history a non-Congress PM has ever won reelection.
No wonder Rahul Gandhi was so confident, or at least tried to act confident.
“They never thought he would lose.” Ha, ha, ha!

Pat Frederick

The proposed NY law giving over elected officials tax returns to gov’t committees–since FLOTUS is an un-elected public official, does she have recourse here? Those returns are joint returns and as such her private info is co-mingled, so she has standing to sue NY and stop the whole thing, doesn’t she? Just throwing it out there before coffee…lol

daughnworks247

Ya’ know——- that’s brilliant legal strategy.

daughnworks247

I’m guessing they filed separately. BUT if they file jointly, it would be enough to stop it. If I was her CPA, she was a millionaire before she met Donald Trump and there was a pre-nup, I would have her file separately.
Hmmmmm…….. great point.

Pat Frederick

I knew you’d know better the ins and outs of it…
the original version NY lawmakers proposed was broader and encompassed ANYONE’s tax returns that were requested by these committees. They didn’t have the support for that and narrowed it to elected officials and appointed officials.
this, however, will bite them in the ass when the House returns to Repubs in 2020…Schumer, Clinton, Nadler–all can have their returns requested…

daughnworks247

In fact —- If I were Lindsey Graham, I would immediately request VOLUMES of tax returns on the entire New York Delegation of Dems…….. cuz baby…….. it is tit for tat!

Pat Frederick

I would LOVE to see that…

daughnworks247

ANDDDDDDDDDDDD since it’s elected and appointed officials… first one on my list would be Cuomo, both of them…. which would get CNN all pissed off…. and DeBlasio.

Pat Frederick

I love the way you think!

daughnworks247

You know, with two hops, we could get all the info from every person who works for CNN…… now THAT would be fun!

daughnworks247

And separating our elected and appointed officials is creating a new class and discriminating against them.
This won’t stand.

Pat Frederick

VERY TRUE!

Pat Frederick

follow the money…
FTA:
“New documents shed light on just how much money [foreign] oligarchs were sending to the Biden family while he was vice president,” Schweizer states in the video. “We have a glimpse of this not because the Biden family has disclosed it, but because documents that came out in a court case offer access to financial records involving Hunter Biden.”
“By looking at just this one account, we know what was flowing into the account and what was flowing out while Joe Biden was vice president,” he continued.
“Flowing in over an eighteen month period was $3.1 million from the Ukrainians. There was $142,000 that showed up from a Kazakh oligarch, and then there was a mysterious $1.2 million from a limited liability company that nobody seems to know where it exists [and] that funneled the money to a small Swiss bank that has been implicated in international money laundering,” Schweizer said.
“Flowing out of the account is hundreds of thousands of dollars into the personal banking accounts of Hunter Biden himself. $142,000 to a luxury auto dealership. Another $182,000 to a luxury watch company. This is all just from one account,” he stated.

daughnworks247

Remember Doug Schoen, a Dem who is a Fox pundit every now and then. I recall when the news broke he was making a hefty monthly stipend from the Ukraine. Wasn’t it 50K a month?
https://www.thedailybeast.com/top-us-political-consultants-still-seeking-work-in-ukraine-even-after-paul-manaforts-downfall
And it was Doug Schoen who asked Trump to do a skype talk to the Ukraine in 2015, for which he (Trump) was involved. Then, Pinchuk, the oligarch paid $150K to Trump’s Inauguration Committee.

can they do that legally as long as they register with FARA?

Yeah, I guess so, but wow, would YOU or I ever have guessed Doug Schoen was working for the Ukraine all those years he hawked his opinion on Fox?
I had no idea…..

Wolfie and I had an exchange last night in yesterday’s Daily Thread. He made a great observation, and folks might enjoy it. First: POTUS had a late night tweeting session:

Then, Wolfie:

May 22, 2019 at 23:40
OMG – what a TROLL!!!
“Zero is getting done with the Democrats in charge of the House.”
Here is how I am reading the implied TROLL:
“Barack Obama is being investigated now, along with the top Democrats in the House.”
ladypenquin
May 23, 2019 at 00:21
Ah, you’re quick, Wolfie! “Nothing is getting done” would have been the natural word choice. But I am intrigued by your interpretation, and think you’re right.
“Nothing is” – correct English, “Zero is” – pretzel English, requires a noun like “work” after it to be correct..
I forget how good POTUS is at trolling…
wolfmoon1776
May 23, 2019 at 00:43
He loves these double entendre tweets that his enemies cannot admit he is sophisticated enough to make.
The one that he did about THE WHEEL was beautiful. So subtle. They’re always deniable! They could even be subconscious – FREUDIAN – just as good!
My wife once referred to the Roman emperor Commodus in a totally Freudian slip as “Clintonius” and I just LAUGHED, LAUGHED, LAUGHED!!!
Yup. “ZERO” is getting DONE. 😀
____________________________________
I inquired about the “WHEEL” reference.
He referred me to his Q-Tree post from 12/2018.
https://wqth.wordpress.com/2018/12/31/the-breaking-wall/
Excerpt of my response to that post after reading it this morning. Yes, I believe POTUS has a plan…
[I think this is a good reminder of the moves by the radical Left in marginalizing and incrementally destroying those not like themselves: conservatives, Christians, and other patriotic, Constitutional supporters, Nationalists, etc.Nazis did the same thing in 1930’s Germany against Jews and other “undesirables.”
Obama’s presidency unleashed the Left which had been barely contained in the previous decades, though now we know they were working insidiously and relentlessly to get to this point. Getting a Black President in office gave the Left an automatic stay out of jail race card to go after the people who still believed in America.]
It’s nuggets like this which feed my optimism.

Tonawanda

So look forward to this!

ladypenquin

You’re welcome. Just call me Penguin Ponders. I love pulling insights, and after reading your Wheel post in the early AM hours, it really nailed home the “HOW” the Left accumulated so much power.
It’s also why I always go back to using the example of 1930’s Germany, not WWll, because that’s when the Process took place – moving the country at large against particular groups: isolating, marginalizing and denigrating by the people in power. Your words, “the People had Permission…”
Obama’s presidency was doing the exact same thing…
Of course, I love the clues POTUS drops in his tweets – which you denote as “Trolling” – for me, they’re clues. I wonder if the Dems realize just how much POTUS knows and what’s in store…
POTUS’ tweet early this morning reinforces his clues:

“it should never happen again!” IMO, he is signalling that what happened is going to be revealed, and that steps will be taken to prevent it from ever happening again in the future. AG Barr’s recent remarks indicate they’re both on the same page regarding the use of political power to subvert the Constitution, the Law, and the People’s Will.
PS Considering how late the President was tweeting last night, and then early this morning, I don’t think he got much sleep!
