Decision time for me………..
Continue the deterioration in what is becoming unbearable pain, or head to hospice where communication is limited.
Will say my goodbyes tonight, and check in tomorrow.

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!


Tonight, we pray most of all for our dear brother, Patrick Henry Censored, or PHC for short.

He runs ahead to where we follow.

PHC and W, a short while ago

There are many other comments on Wednesday’s thread where this occurred:

https://wqth.wordpress.com/2019/05/29/dear-maga-20190529-open-topic/comment-page-3/#comment-160489

But I add this one from bakocarl – perhaps his shortest poem:

As you know, PHC, God is with you and He will carry you when you are unable to walk.

You won’t go gentle in that good night,
But willingly, willingly into God’s Light.

bakocarl to PHC, this evening

With that, I put the Daily Thread up EARLY for once, and invite people to give PHC a hug.

W

May LIBERTY always be in our hearts. AMEN.

Go to Twitter, you have to see what is going on between AOC and Ted Cruz about a clean bill for disaster relief.

I found conversation wrt banning elected officials from lobbying after leaving (for lifetime)
where’s disaster relief conversation Daughn ?

daughnworks247

It was a funny conversation about trying to get a clean bill for Disaster Relief.
Note: “The Point at which AOC becomes the next victim of the Zodiac Killer”
Hilarious stuff.

Sylvia Avery

I didn’t find disaster relief, but I saw where they are teaming up on an anti lobbying measure? Wow. Well, good luck with that!!!!

Sure, not a problem.
You stop the migrant problem.
We pause the tariffs.
Win, win.

Love it when a plan comes together!

Agreed.
Last night, Tucker did a segment on the interference of the Mexican government in our election in 2016. Mexican government officials take a leave of absence for a year and coming to the US to round up votes for Hillary was just one example. Further they come up here and demand to the Mexicans who have moved here that they refuse to learn English. The purpose is to derail their integration into our society. They want them to remain separate and hold onto their Mexican identity so that they can take over the US territory they occupy through basically cultural invasion.
So yes, BUILD THE DAMN WALL. Maybe they can get some former East Germans to figure out how to build a wall on their southern border and keep people out.
I’m out of patience. I suspect AMLO wants this meeting and will try to stall. I bet PDJT won’t be super accommodating.

Linda

He shouldn’t be. He’s tried to work with them for a year and they’ve done very little. They could stop it tomorrow if they want to. I was interested in reading what POTUS wrote that he also told Mexico to do something about their cartels.

Because friendly ass-slaps are highly underrated?

cthulhu

For a slightly less silly response…..one of the things you have drilled into your head during your first year working in an accounting position is that the most important person in accounting is “SALY”.
“SALY” stands for “Same As Last Year”. There’s even a thing in audit standards about “accounting principles consistently applied.” It is presumed that when interested parties want to know if a firm is doing better than last year, they’re not going to want to apply a rubber ruler to that determination. It’s something that is firmly beaten into junior accountants — and needfully so. Look up SALY before you bother a manager or partner……
So, at least for accountants, “slap my A** and call me Sally” might have a deeper meaning.

During a portion of an interview set to air on Friday’s “CBS This Morning,” Attorney General William Barr said that he has concerns over the handling of the Russia investigation, but he doesn’t think the officials who oversaw the investigation committed treason.
CBS News Chief Legal Correspondent Jan Crawford asked, “You don’t think that they’ve committed treason?”
Barr responded, “Not as a legal matter.”
He added, “[S]ometimes people can convince themselves that what they’re doing is in the higher interest, the better good. They don’t realize that what they’re doing is really antithetical to the democratic system we have.”

I signed up and it is pretty easy to navigate. Some of the bigger names who’ve been banned seem to be migrating there.

Its late but I didnt see this posted yet. Sounds hopeful the case will be thrown out.bugging defense attorneys is unethical. If you cant win on m erits then naybe theres no there there.
A decorated Navy SEAL facing a murder trial in the death of an Islamic State prisoner was freed from custody Thursday after a military judge cited interference by prosecutors.
The unexpected move drew gasps in a San Diego courtroom after lawyers for Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher presented evidence to get the case dismissed because of prosecutorial misconduct.
The judge has not ruled yet on whether to throw out the case or remove prosecutors for launching an unusual effort to track emails sent to defense lawyers and a journalist to find the source of news leaks in the politically charged case. That hearing continues Friday.
The judge, Capt. Aaron Rugh, said he was freeing Gallagher as a remedy for prosecutors interfering with his Sixth Amendment right to counsel.
Gallagher’s wife, Andrea, who has led a campaign to free her husband, put her hands to her face and burst into tears.

“I feel like it’s a small victory on the way to the larger victory,” Andrea Gallagher said outside court while her husband stood quietly by her side in his Navy whites. “He’s now free because of the misconduct by these prosecutors.”
He declined to comment.
A spokesman for the Navy prosecutors wouldn’t comment on Gallagher’s freedom or developments at the hearing.
Defense attorney Tim Parlatore had accused prosecutors of a “rogue, relentless, and unlawful cyber campaign” that may have violated attorney-client privilege and hurt Gallagher’s ability to get a fair trial.
Evidence at the hearing showed prosecutors had enlisted a Navy intelligence specialist to conduct criminal background checks on three civilian lawyers, including Parlatore, and a journalist with the Navy Times who has broken several stories based on leaked documents.

The defense said most of the articles based on leaks have been favorable to the prosecution, yet the investigation did not target prosecutors or Naval Criminal Investigative Service personnel.
Efforts to get the case thrown out come as President Donald Trump considers pardoning several service members accused of war crimes, including Gallagher. Gallagher faces trial June 10.
Trump previously got Gallagher removed from the brig and transferred to better custody conditions at a Navy hospital.
During the hearing Thursday, Rugh indicated he was kept in the dark by prosecutors about the email monitoring.

Prosecutors Allegedly Tracked Emails of Navy SEAL Charged With Killing IS Prisoner in Iraq
Rugh said prosecutors told him privately they planned to embed code in what he believed to be a court document to help them find the source of leaks. But he said he didn’t have the power to authorize such an investigative tool, and wasn’t told they planned to plant the code in emails sent to defense lawyers or a journalist.
Rugh said he thought prosecutors were coordinating the investigation with the U.S. attorney’s office in San Diego. Rugh said he wasn’t aware that a federal prosecutor told the military prosecutor to make sure they had the judge’s approval before launching the tracking effort.
Parlatore withdrew his motion to have the judge removed from the case after learning he had not authorized the scheme.
The lead prosecutor downplayed the move at a related hearing earlier in the day. Cmdr. Christopher Czaplak said the code embedded in the email recorded nothing more than where and when messages were opened by recipients.
Gallagher has pleaded not guilty to murder in the death of an injured teenage militant in Iraq in 2017 and attempted murder for allegedly picking off civilians from a sniper’s perch.
His platoon supervisor, Lt. Jacob Portier, is fighting charges of conduct unbecoming an officer for allegedly conducting Gallagher’s re-enlistment ceremony next to the militant’s corpse.
Czaplak said the tracking ended May 10 after he was confronted by defense lawyers who discovered the code in an unusual logo of an American flag with a bald eagle perched on the scales of justice beneath Czaplak’s signature.
Czaplak acknowledged the effort in a closed-door hearing three weeks ago. He disclosed no other details at the time.
On Thursday, Czaplak said the emails were similar to what marketers use to see when an email is opened and what device was used to open it.
“It’s still a web bug and it’s still unethical” countered defense lawyer Jeremiah J. Sullivan III, who represents Portier.
The judge in Portier’s case, Capt. Jonathan Stephens, said from what he had seen the tracking effort wasn’t able to view the contents of any emails.
Several experts testified that the code embedded in a signature line in the emails collected information on internet protocol addresses and could tell what web browser was being used, the duration it was open and could see if the message had been forwarded. But the information couldn’t generally be used to identify a specific person or capture content.
Josiah Roloff, a data forensics examiner from Spokane, Washington, said the code is typically used by marketing companies and he’s seen it used in undercover investigations. But he said he’s never seen it used to target defense lawyers.

This is the damndest story. I’m glad he’s free for now. WTH is with our government? No regard for defense lawyers/client privilege, everyone’s bugging everyone, malicious prosecution. SMH.

HusseinO tried to totally destroy our Military.
Pres Trump made a reference to it, that time he said that what Hussein did to our Military, was “unforgiveable”.
Methinks these military prosecutors who are engaging in this scurrilous behavior, were put in place during reign of Hussein…and are still working for him, to demoralize and depress our military people.

Me too. I was saying this to mr gil tonight.

“President Donald Trump will be greeted by two 41-gun salutes when he arrives to meet the Queen on Monday for the first day of his state visit to Britain.
In an extravagant display of pomp and ceremony, the military honours at Green Park and the Tower of London will be timed for the exact moment that Mr Trump arrives at Buckingham Palace.
At the Palace he and his wife Melania will receive a formal ceremonial welcome, including a guard of honour by Nijmegen Company the Grenadier Guards…”

How childish can you get. Honestly.
“During the state visit protesters are again hoping to fly the Donald Trump blimp, which depicts the American leader as a baby.
A 16ft talking robot of Mr Trump sitting on a gold toilet is also expected to make an appearance.
It depicts the American leader with his trousers round his ankles while tweeting and says some of his well-known phrases such as ‘stable genius’ and ‘no collusion’, as well as breaking wind.”

They haven’t begun to plumb the depths of childishness, believe me.

Trying, with pomp and circumstance, to get Pres. Trump to go easy on them for their role in spygate?

That…and trying to get ahead of the reveal of it, with a big show of ‘respect’.
Then when it is revealed, they can act like:
“Who…us? We would never do that! Look how we treated the President when he was here.”

You put it better. My thought was, “suck up much?”

I’m going to do some roaring tomorrow. Since I got back to San Diego my grandsons have been very sick.
One is the never get sick kid..has pneumonia and the other one a nasty lingering stomach virus.
I’m livid that these malicious pols have abdicated even the pretense of governing the State. ALL they’ve done is try to topple Trump at OUR expense. Our kids are catching obscure diseases from the flow of unchecked illegals. Our resources are being stretched.
They’re allowing the cities to become cesspools while they spend every single minute babbling about POTUS.
