This Saving Our Republic Saturday 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. Free Speech is practiced here at the Q Tree. In fact, our host Wolfmoon encourages us to use it…and Enjoy it. “Use it or lose it”, he tells us. But please keep it civil. Discussion of Q is not only allowed but encouraged. Imagine that! We can talk about Q here and not get banned. 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 that Wolf has created for us.

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

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU.

Visual descriptions for our dear Zoe, and for anyone else who may find them helpful: Header Image: Is a view of a lone Knight on a white horse, slowly approaching on a pathway leading to a gigantic Tree. The enormous Tree is the size of a skyscraper, with a gnarled trunk and huge branches. There is a rough hillside in front of the tree…so we cannot see the base of it. Some stone ruins are off to the side of the Tree. In the distance are some other gigantic Trees, which give us an idea of the scale of the one that the Knight is approaching. It is a sunny day with blue sky overhead and there are fluffy white clouds in the distance. Second Image: Is a set of arched doors that come to a pointed arch at the top. One of the doors is slightly ajar. There is ornate scrolled iron-work on the doors at their hinges, that covers quite a bit of each door. A large metal circle serves as the handle on one door…the other door has a metal gate across the lower half. There is a stone path and couple of stone steps in front of the doors. There is ivy and green vegetation all around the door frame. Above the top of the doors, is a stone carving of a circular emblem of some sort. Sunlight is streaming down on this stone emblem and onto the steps leading up to the doors. Third Image: Is an open lounge with a view, filled with comfy-looking couches and over-stuffed chairs. There are lanterns all around, on the tables, on the guard rails and on out of the way places on the floor. There is a round free-standing stucco fireplace, with a warm-looking fire crackling within it. Large branches serve as supports for the ceiling, with cross-branches forming the structure for the ceiling. Fourth Image: Is our President, standing at a podium in the Rose Garden at the White House. He has a slight scowl on his face, as he is dealing with the press weasels…and looks like he would rather be somewhere else. He is wearing a dark blue suit with dark blue striped tie and there is flag pin on his lapel. Fifth Image: Is our Attorney General William Barr, looking forward with a no-nonsense, determined look on his face. Caption underneath: “Come on, Honey Badger…release the Kraken!”

I am not kidding – OAN played both of them, and the “fake”, “doctored”, “hoax” video was actually MORE UNDERSTANDABLE to me than the “real” video.
I contend that the original was put through a conversion process which messed with the sound a bit, and the FAKE NEWS “recharacterized” that difference according to their PREJUDICES.
In other words, it’s NOT a fake – it’s a conversion loss.

Sylvia Avery

This kind of thing is beyond me, but remember when Jim Acosta and the WH intern fought over the mic and Sarah Sanders sent out the video showing that? And all the media claimed it was a fake or it had been altered? It hadn’t, actually,but by then they had neutralized the video through the claim.
And during PDJT’s Oval Office speech a couple months ago a local news affiliate in my state DID alter the video to make the President’s skin look dark orange and to make him appear heavier. But that got scant, nearly nonexistent, play in the news.

wolfmoon1776

Exactly. All of these claims and counterclaims operate in the zone of plausibility and believability, and those of us who desire only TRUE CREDIBILITY will dig for the truth no matter what. THAT is how we will not only BE THE NEWS, but STAY THE NEWS.

Harry Lime

Perfectly believable…and a cold chai sends Hillary into violent seizures. Yeah…that’s the ticket. Ok, FakeNews…how about some more layoffs…

I think the Cabal has found the method for depopulation… you know according to Agenda 21 they want to reduce the planets population down from 7.7 Bn to 1.0 Bn. Looks like the Muslims are going to make it happen in the UK anyway.

Memorial Day 2019 Projected to Kick Off Busiest U.S. Travel on Record
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/05/25/memorial-day-2019-projected-kick-off-busiest-u-s-travel-record/
A few words of advice from this airline pilot…
1) The two things that really screw up travel plans are BAD WEATHER and MAINTENCE issues…one you can know about in advance (Wx) but maintenance (Mx) pops up without warning
2) THINK like a pilot….always expect the worst and plan accordingly. Have a plan B and C, and be happy when things go according to plan A.
3) The reason there are delays when bad weather pops up is because of air traffic control spacing requirements between airplanes in bad weather versus good weather. In good weather the minimum distance separation between aircraft is 3 miles, but when the weather turns bad that requirement turns into a 5 mile separation requirement. Therefore, when bad weather hits, an affected airport’s ability to handle air traffic is cut by 50%.
4) The US air travel system is set up in what is known as a “hub and spoke“ system. Hubs are major airports such as JFK, Chicago’s O’Hare, Atlanta Hartsfield, Dallas Fort Worth, Denver, Salt Lake, Phoenix, LA, San Francisco. The “spoke” routes are from smaller cities…like Memphis, TN for example…that “feed” the hubs. therefore, people who live in the smaller spoke cities usually have to fly into a hub and change airplanes to reach their final destinations, where as people who live in the hub cities can enjoy direct flights.
5) Now see #3 again. when bad weather affects a hub city, this affects the ENTIRE air transport system in the United States. This is because of the hub and spoke system. What this means is that even if you are in LA and traveling to Miami, bad weather in DFW can affect your travel. For instance, the plane that is scheduled to take you from LA to Miami might be coming from DFW and can’t get out on time (if at all).
6) The busier the US airspace system is, the greater the effect that bad weather can have on the entire system. More airplanes in the sky means LONGER delays (and more cancellations) than would otherwise be the case.
7) Now see #2 again
8) Gate agents get to a gate approximately one hour prior to an aircraft departure. Gate agents typically will work two or three gates in the area in which they are assigned. Very frequently, a gate agent will work two gates one right next to the other. If you suspect your flight might be delayed or even canceled because of bad weather or maintenance then you can possibly list as a standby on the next flight to your destination. This is usually done on a first come first serve basis. So, if you suspect that your flight might be delayed or canceled and you have not boarded your aircraft yet, be PROACTIVE and ask the gate agent for your flight to list you as a standby passenger on the next flight out to your destination. BE ADVISED: This can only be done within the same airline. This means that if you are on a United flight, the gate agent cannot list you as a standby passenger on an American Airlines flight.
10) same thing for maintenance issues. The moment your airplane is delayed for a maintenance issue, immediately ask the gate agent to list you as a standby passenger on the next flight to your destination.
11) remember that standby passengers can only be assigned seats that are available and have not been sold. If there are only 3 unsold seats on a flight and 10 people are listed as standbys, only the first 3 get a seat….and this is done on a first come, first served basis….so beat the rush and list for standby the moment you suspect your flight might be delayed PAST the departure time of the next plane leaving for your destination.
12) last but not least…. when bad weather strikes a hub and flights get canceled there is a rush for hotel rooms. Hotels near the airport quickly sell out in times of bad weather with many flight cancellations. This should be part of your Plan B and plan C back up plans. Always be checking the weather and have a back up plan in case your flight gets delayed or cancelled. You can often get a hotel room reservation that you can cancel up to 6 PM the day of the reservation without getting charged for cancelling. If you have a reservation then you are guaranteed a room. Keep that in mind, especially if the weather is forecasted to be either questionable or bad on the day you are to go fly.
13) all of this applies to both domestic and international travel.
Hope this helps some of you this summer. It’s going to be very, very busy.

ForGodandCountry

PS – when talking about spacing requirements, I am speaking of airplanes that are taking off and landing….not NECESSARILY aircraft that are en route. Remember that a plane at 25,000 feet can pass safely DIRECTLY UNDER another one at 26,000. Airspace is three dimensional….not two dimensional like driving is.
Thx.

Gil

Its awesome to have someone give us this info so thank you! Im not sure I want to get on a plane with a 5 yr old though. I havent been on a plane for 10 years. I think the shock of the tsa and the climate on board of the nutty passengers might be hard. Is there such a thing as least busy time to fly anymore?comment image

ForGodandCountry

Is there such a thing as least busiest time to fly?
A: as a matter of fact, if there is, but you have to think counter-intuitively and know that the WORST travel days are Friday, Sunday, and Mondays. This is especially true around holidays like this weekend. Best days AND times to travel are NORMALLY Saturdays and Tuesdays IN THE AM. Wednesdays and Thursdays can be either good or bad depending on how the calendar falls.

Gil

And ill be noting that info. Tyvm. 😉

Aubergine

Thanks for all that!
I love good advice for flying. I am not a great traveler, so when I do, I like to be prepared.

Important to understand that TWO DIFFERENT Trump Tower meetings were used against our VSG.
We know about the LORETTA LYNCH / NATALIA VESELNITSKAYA frame-job meeting with Don Jr.
HERE is the OTHER meeting – with “Curtains” Comey and POTUS!!!

Target used to be my favorite store – go-to for almost everything. First shopped there in 1971.
I – along with my family – quit shopping there in protest of their “use whatever bathroom you want” policy. Haven’t been in one since, (I’m sure they have noticed the resulting drop in sales 🙂
Running across this article has MOAR than reinforced my feelings of repulsion against this retail giant.
If any of you still shop here, please read this and consider NEVER stepping foot in another Target store!

Ty. I have to buy certain food products that I cant locate elsewhere but I need blinders for everything else… more hunting required I think. Target is nuts.

michaelh

I’ve cut down our shopping at Target. There are a few things I need there I can’t get elsewhere, but those are very few items. I’m sure they’re hurting b/c we used to spend at least $100/mo there. Not anymore.

Went over to OT to scan what’s going on and saw photos of Abe/Trump getting ready to play golf.
Two outstanding memories of when I played golf in Japan…
First, you don’t actually drive the golf cart (that has all 4 players’ clubs). The carts are controlled by underground tracks and literally drive themselves along a specific path. The driver only makes it stop and go. The great thing….when you get out for your approach shot to the green, the carts drives by itself to the back of the green to wait for you.
Second, at least where I played (southern Japan), you play nine holes and then go inside for a full lunch and then return to finish the game. ( no grabbing a hot to to eat on the way!) And then, you go inside once again to take a Japanese bath before going home.
And, oh yes…the women cover their bodies head to toe…gloves on both hands, long sleeves with an ascot around neck to protect from sun, long pants and big hats. That’s why they have much better skin than we do!

j4260T

PS to Japan golf story…forgot to mention that the “driver” has a remote control device with her to move the cart along the invisible tracks to the distance you just hit your ball. Super neat!

ForGodandCountry

Not for nothing…but…
….Senate Judiciary Chair and McCain BFF Lindsey Graham’s refusal to call Robert Mueller to testify before his committee tells you everything you need to know about where his TRUE loyalties lie, and they are NOT with POTUS.
Actions (or a lack thereof) ALWAYS speak more loudly than words. Don’t get fooled by Graham.

JasonD

Unless Mueller was “trying to save himself” – and succeeded?
We don’t know what we don’t know, as DP so aptly puts it … 😉

ForGodandCountry

I don’t buy that. I believe the story version that says Mueller was a figurehead and it was Andrew Weissmann who was really in charge of the SC.
Regardless, there is very little downside….if any….to calling on Mueller to testify, and MUCH to be gained. Questions like…
“Mr. Mueller, when did you become aware that the Steele dossier was bought and paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign?”
Think about a question like that…and others like it…such as…
“We know you left a cell phone in the Oval Office the day before you were appointed SC by Rod Rosenstein. Where is that phone today?”
Etc.

JasonD

You seem to be forgetting that POTUS said “I may lengthen the investigation – it may confuse some people” AND that is exactly what happened. The same investigation that CLEARED him.
Now, it is a free country, and you can conclude what you want on without all the facts being visible …
The fact that Q-team exists proves that much that is VISIBLY in play is a charade – so my advice is not to jump to conclusions. We are mere spectators, not players – so I am just enjoying the show.
Just my perspective, it being a free world – supposedly ….

bflyjesusgrl

Miss Lindsey’s said he’s done with Russia, time to move on. He also said he was gonna let Barr take the lead and not get in his way. At this point, I agree, he’s actually saving time and taxpayer money. Let him work on Immigration quick hits and other legislation. Mueller testifying to Congress would just be dog and pony show. Barr and his guys have Grand Jury and subpoena teeth, I’m gonna trust them. Plus Barr now has Declass.😃😃😃 Wray either needs to cooperate or resign.

Molly Pitcher

This junk is exhausting. At this point I’m not even sure what sex the kid thinks it is. Is he a male transgendered as a female needing to shave so he doesn’t look like a guy? OR is it a girl wanting to be a boy so she’s pretending to shave like a guy?
Wait….I guess I don’t care!!! Gillette has gone off the rails. Sell razor blades and stop trying to send stupid messages.

Sylvia Avery

I get confused, too, Molly. I still don’t know if transgender son means it was born a female and is now trying to become a male? Or is it a male wanting to be a female? I need some kind of easy reference chart because I get bewildered really fast.
And then I get doubly confused when you have a male who becomes a female but is sexually attracted to females. I just don’t even know how to process that. And you are right, it is exhausting trying to figure it out.

Geeeez, just shave what needs to be shaved and stop the SJW crap🙄

TRUMP REPLACING TOP IMMIGRATION CHIEF WITH KEN CUCCINELLI
The Trump administration will name Ken Cuccinelli, the former GOP attorney general of Virginia, as director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
At the request of the President, I submitted my resignation today effective June 1, 2019,” USCIS L. Francis Cissna wrote to staff on Friday, according to an email first obtained by The Washington Post. “During the past 20 months, every day, I have passionately worked to carry out USCIS’ mission to faithfully administer the nation’s lawful immigration system. We are the agency charged with safeguarding its integrity and promise.”
Speculation had grown over Cissna’s possible dismissal, with insiders having long complained about the director’s leadership.
A former administration official who worked alongside Cissna told the Caller in April that he has “let the bureaucracy overwhelm him to the point of grinding everything to a halt,” and that he “has not done one” administrative action in attempting to reform the way asylum claims are processed at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Cuccinelli, on the other hand, has a history of taking a hardline approach to illegal immigration.
The former Virginia attorney general opposes birthright citizenship and wants to strip illegal immigrants of unemployment benefits. Cucinelli has also defended the Trump administration’s immigration agenda in numerous media television appearances.
RUT ROH, Turtle 🐢 Problems
The battle for Cuccinelli may have just begun, however. While he enjoys the support of the president and White House senior adviser Stephen Miller, Cuccinelli is adamantly opposed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. The Kentucky Republican has previously vowed to block his confirmation for any posts within administration.
