Dear MAGA: 20190531 Open Topic

This FIND A FRIEND PARLAYING IN THE PARLER ON FRIDAY 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.


And remember – while President Trump and his dear Family are traveling to Islamist-occupied IngSoc, they need to hear a chorus of MAGA BLESSING and PROTECTION:

“I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!”


OK – I forgot Wheaties Rules, except the one I always forget about bringing enough for everybody!

Moving along…..


Brad Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, apparently showed interest in a social media site that is MOSTLY like Twitter, but with shades of Facebook, called Parler.

Now, people generally know my affection for ALT-TECH leader Gab…

HOWEVER, not everybody is ready to rub shoulder’s with HILLARY’S BEST FAKE NAZIS, who – I must admit – get pretty tiresome pretty fast, no matter HOW one feels about free speech.

SO…..

Maybe Parler isn’t so bad for MAGA Normies who don’t like what they see on Gab. And there are some familiar faces on Parler, too!

And a bunch of us are already there!

So – give it a spin!

Getting a free cat is generally not a problem. Plenty of places will even provide pregnant free cats so long as you provide evidence of an open sock drawer.

Wolfie, there was a discussion about trans stuff at the tail end (sorry) of yesterday’s thread.
I read someone’s random thoughts about the emphasis within the schools in recent years on bullying. Now, we probably ALL were bullied in school at one time or another to one degree or another. It seems like it is an unpleasant part of growing up. My mom always said, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.”
Well, maybe, but boy some of that bullying is hard depending on a kid’s resiliency, vulnerability, and age and other factors. None of us likes to see it happen. None of us wants our kids to hurt. So all the hard sell on BULLYING IS BAD in schools seemed like a reasonable thing. A good thing, right?
Except it began to be noticeable that slowly the emphasis was on the gay kids, the trans kids. They were the different ones, after all. They are the true victims of bullying. And the only way to solve it is to start real young teaching kids all about being gay. Being a little boy trapped in a girl’s body or vice versa.
In other words, the theory offered is the anti bullying campaign was a trojan horse for pushing the gay and trans agenda hard in the youngest kids.
I don’t know if it is true, but it’s one of those things that since I read it I haven’t quite been able to get it out of my head.

wheatietoo

If you look at the way that the Left has accomplished their other Social Engineering goals…then that one fits right in.
Look at how they pushed the myth of “white privilege”…in order to further their false narrative that white people are given all sorts of advantages just by being born white.
Then…that made it okay to vilify and bully white people into submission.
It justifies all the crimes against white people, just for walking down the street.
And now, white people are being murdered in Africa…and the media is gaslighting us about it.
They’ve declared that any mention of the ‘White Genocide’ going on, is a “conspiracy theory”.
So yeah, I can see how the ‘Anti-Bullying’ policy was used to usher in all this current push of the gay and trans agenda.

Sylvia Avery

I had never thought about the bullying thing, except I was aware that at some point it was making me uncomfortable and I couldn’t have told you why. Not really on my radar, never gave it much thought. Still, I had an awareness that it was bugging me.
This theory made my head snap back. Ah HA! The pieces just fit. It makes all kinds of sense, sadly.

cthulhu

Speaking of total propaganda, “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy” was complete normalizing propaganda from top to bottom, start to finish, side to side. It put Leni Riefenstahl in the dust. Mind you, I actually enjoyed it — but had no illusions as to its purpose. It was so obvious that The Powers That Be ran the series for a couple of years and then pushed gay marriage, LBGTQVXYZWTF, transgender bathrooms, and weaponized pronouns.

Sylvia Avery

I never watched it. That was right about the time that I was starting to feel like there was such a thing as a gay agenda and it was starting to be jammed down our throats. I never dreamed it would end up here, however.
And propaganda is always so much more effective when we enjoy it. Leni taught us that.

cthulhu

The thing was, “Ted” actually would provide worthwhile cooking tips. Go figure. You don’t have to be straight to cook. In fact, the Galloping Gourmet would demonstrate that you don’t even have to be particularly sane. “Carson” could provide worthwhile style tips — as if men’s formalware had any hint of individuality and wasn’t already overrun with homosexuals (I’m leaning towards being buried in a Zoot Suit, despite decades of being a CPA). “Thom” had a variety of worthwhile concepts he pushed — “accent walls”, “neutral colors” and the like. Ideas don’t have genders or predilictions. And the show’s production values and writing were top-notch, with humor and human-interest…….but it reeked of propaganda from 30-seconds in.

Sylvia Avery

Laughing at the zoot suit reference!
IIRC, the show was really popular and was on for a number of seasons.

No, that’s what your kids get if they misbehave in a cafe/restaurant any kid who’s a little odd is gonna get picked on. The mild Aspergers, the clutz, the socially inept but it has crystallised on the gay and trans

daughnworks247

I don’t like the “anti-bullying” movement because of the unintended consequences.
Guaranteed – China/Russia/Brazil/Turkey, etc. have no such program.
Competition is part of the human spirit – whatever form it takes.
Anti-bullying makes all of our youth more feminine and weaker.
Children MUST learn how to deal with their own strengths and weaknesses and overcome without an ‘adult’ as a constant referee.
Plus, now, there is no more HERO – the kid who decides to stick up for the one being abused.
AND – there’s no more glory from the moment when your personal bully is defeated.
Kids don’t learn “right versus wrong” behavior and are no longer allowed to make the decision to act on their own, or figure out a way to fight back, because there’s always a teacher intervening.
Well, in the real world, no one is there to intervene.
In global competition, in international biz, these kids will be ripe for the picking.

Katie

And here’s a real life example of what you’re talking about.
EIGHT champions in the National Spelling Bee – because “they ran out of words” to challenge the kids. What a load of CRAP!
When asked by Ainsley on F&F this morning, one of the kids said he’d rather share the trophy with the rest of the kids than win it himself.
Trophies for everyone!

daughnworks247

Saw that this morning – dumb. No, we stay until we have a winner. Pass me the dictionary.

Teagan

Did you read the names of the students? Vast majority were definitely not typical “American” names…as usual.

Sylvia Avery

I agree.

Aubergine

As I see it, the problem is people don’t seem to be able to set a boundary, or end point, for anything!
I want kids to learn not to hurt each other. BUT, I don’t want them to learn to accept whatever friggin behavior some idiot wants to engage in. Is that so hard?
I try to teach my grandchildren to be friends with the “normal” kids, and ignore the others. It used to be that social norms would influence behavior. If you were a straight-up weirdo at school, you didn’t have any friends. So you would adjust your behavior so you DID have some. Peer influence is a powerful thing. I know, I lived it! I am an artist, high-I.Q., and a bit anti-social. I had to LEARN how to fit in, so I could fit in! It was important to me. Everybody wants to. Nowadays we just try to force kids to accept the weirdos no matter how weird they are.
“Don’t judge” is the mantra of the day. But I maintain, at root, our JUDGEMENT of others is our only defense against being used, abused, or deceived. “Use your judgement” is good advice.

Sylvia Avery

What a good point!

There was some legitimate research into bullying phenomena being done, which has led to some interesting and valuable insights. The bullying research was in its infancy in the 1990s, but ramped up dramatically after Columbine in 1998.
The real problem is the Neo-Marxist narratives of victim/oppression are tailored to provide pre-determined victim/oppressor groups.
Given the timeframe (late 90s, early 2000s) the victimhood narrative that was the most popular was the neo-marxist fable that homosexual children were being aggressively bullied by hetero-normative society and peers. Cue up many bullying incident stories where students were teased for acting in stereotypical opposite gender manners, combined with name-calling “wusses”, “sissies”, “fags”, etc.
It’s helpful to recognize that around the same time, when young people “came out of the closet” (and I saw this mostly with undergrad college students) it was not unusual for them frame their story of “coming out” in terms of 1) how that they did not match up with the stereotypical gender roles (boys who were not athletic, or artistic interests) 2) that they were teased for being different than other of the same gender (for example, locker room teasing about not being athletic, name calling “fag”, etc.) 3) at some point, a struggle occurred for their sexual identity, and they either “discovered” they were or finally “accepted” that they were homosexual.
I’ve had this question many times, “how do you know that you are gay?” and it always defaulted back to the behavioral interests and never to something more concrete. Even the literature provided by the LGBT student unions was telling, “There is no sure way to tell if a person is gay, but…”
So LGBT-questioning students are told they are victims of bullying, and they are likely to find examples in their personal history that affirm that narrative. Combine with a little love bombing, and provide them faux social acceptance when they affirm LGBT ideology, and you have a powerful mix that resembles the mind control methods employed by cults since the 1960s.
The “bullying epidemic” does show how much of a joke the “socialization” argument is when employed against homeschoolers. The fact is that unregulated peer socialization among children, combined with the toxicity of cultural influences that said children bring to the table from their various backgrounds, results in a very toxic social mix. Social stratification results, with a high degree of in-group/out-group behaviors which cannot be reasonably described as healthy. In-group identities are subject to extreme peer pressure that reflects tribal conformity: brand identification, mimicking clothing and dress styles (usually without room for deviance), often immature or toxic behavioral norms, and of course common risk taking activities and initiations to prove loyalty with the tribe against outside groups most notably authorities. Out-group socialization and ostracism has its own sets of problems. This kind of “socialization” is absurd, yet professional educators continue to trumpet this as a benefit of school systems, even while they struggle to deal with the supposed “bullying epidemic” facing American schools. There is no logic here: Bullying is always happening somewhere else they rationalize because they are aware and dealing with it.
Unsurprisingly, these leftist indoctrinated teachers and administrators are often themselves the bullies. They have preferred and prejudiced narratives of who the bullies/victims are. They often side with the bullies against the victims, overlooking blatant offenses with pathetic excuses “he’s too sensitive” “he needs to toughen up” or the real gem “he was asking for it”. In effect they encourage the bullies and disempower the victims from standing up for themselves – a key authority figure, the teacher, won’t take the victim’s story seriously, and the child has absolutely no recourse or action in this system when the teacher will not advocate on his behalf.
The bullying teachers and administrators, enlightened saints of anti-bullying who Are Never Wrong, bully other teachers and administrators into compliance. But that’s not enough – they constantly bully parents into compliance with their norms as well, issuing idiotic edicts and using their power over student records and graduation requirements as weapons to make parents act as they like in the most controlling of manners, including how they drop of their “students” (always referred to as “students” and never as the parents’ children) or what is or is not allowed in their lunches.
Anyway there are two major solutions for dealing with bullying:
1) Help the individual student develop resiliency. This does not mean telling the kid he has to “toughen up” but rather actually help him by providing the tools he needs to be resilient. This includes more than just a vague emotional resilience, but also developing a trust in authorities that his problem will be taken seriously, that there is a fair and just order society is expected to follow, and helping provide the tools for how to respond in bullying situations.
2) Strive to create bully-free environments. Protect students by removing identified bullies. If that can’t be done, create safe spaces where students can be safe from bullying and bullying language. Teach the students about the dangers of bullying speech, and reign in any speech that is deemed harmful, offensive, or hurtful.
Hmmm, we can see where THAT is going, right? Let’s guess which path most leftist educators prefer…

It fits within the sizing square.
But there is no ‘Save’ button!

No success.

Thanks, Wolfie…but given the trouble I’m having with it, I am afraid that if it works, then I might not be able to change out your avatar pic.
And then that would be a mess!

I’ve noticed a lot of people on Parler don’t have avatars too.
The Epoch Times is a prolific poster there…and even they don’t have an avatar yet.
Methinks I may not be the only one who is having trouble with it.
It was so easy to do on Gab…no problems whatsoever.
Very simple.

Hmm…I don’t ever get the ‘Small copy’ of the Big avatar.
And don’t get a save button either.
I don’t see an avatar on Epoch Times.

Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts used to be terrific organizations.
There was a conscious move in the 90’s for radical left tards to take over the boards of these organizations and push an agenda.
I sat on many philanthropic boards, watched it happen, tried to fight it. Within 10 years, the transformation was complete.

IMO, the same applies on a lesser scale to Judge Jeanine. She made absolutely NO explanation after Fox removed her for her comment about fundamentalist Islam vis-a-vis Omar’s head-covering. She caved and accepted the slap-down with no explanation whatsoever. Not a fan any longer. Hannity irritates me but even he said on-air that Fox had asked him to back off of the Seth Rich story.

Sylvia Avery

I’m reposting those since this thread is about Parler. I totally get Rudy’s and Lisa Mei’s points, but it seems like a we need many platforms because of the censorship.

Sylvia Avery

I haven’t looked into Parler yet, but I thought I’d probably open an account. My thought on the subject, which isn’t very sophisticated admittedly, is just if Twitter is censoring all the good guys they’re going elsewhere. I want to be able to read them. Like James Woods. I miss him.
Parler is another back up plan for me, at this point. If PDJT moves to Parler, well, game over for Twitter.

wheatietoo

This made me wonder if James Woods has a Parler account.
🤓🧐
So I did a search…and there are 2 accounts for ‘James Woods’:
— @RealJamesWoods
— @OfficialJamesWoods
But they are just plain vanilla accounts…no posts yet and no avatar pics.

Prosecution due to NYT colluding with leaking DNC politicians.

Tonawanda

VERY intriguing and plausible explanation for this puzzling anomaly.

GA/FL

Could NYT, being owned by Mexican Media Mogul Carlos Slim, be accused of acting as agent for foreign interest due to its partisan political activism/bias?

Tonawanda

Again, very interesting.
Your insight brings me to a short segment on Tucker last night which NOW seems to make a lot more sense.
In the segment Tucker says: “Being concerned about Russian interference is fine, but what about actual, demonstrable, substantial interference by Mexico, including explicit cooperation between Mexico and the DNC?”
I forget the exact details (it was new and moved too fast for these old brain cells) but Tucker showed actual, demonstrable and substantial evidence of interference by Mexico in our elections to help the Demokkkrats.
One instance (again, I do not remember the details) was a Mexican government Big Wig leaving his government, moving to America to become an explicit employee of the Demokkkrats for election purposes, and then returning to Mexico to resume his Mexican government employment.

GA/FL

Also, likely NYT vs Sullivan will be revisited due to resultant journalistic political activism, bias, intentional false stories, leak, etc. and lack of accountability. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Times_Co._v._Sullivan

Sullivan looks very quaint now.

There has been a race-to-space going on between China and Russia, for some time.
HusseinO took us out of it.
But now, with our VSG in office…we have a chance to get back into it.
I think there will be vast opportunities for mining in Space.
On asteroids…and on the Moon.
We need a Space Force to protect our space entrepreneurs who will be spending the bucks to do the mining.
There is also a need for Salvage operations, on all that ‘space junk’ that is orbiting the planet.

Sylvia Avery

Agreed. I read/maybe posted something a couple weeks ago that said PDJT was kind of getting the runaround from the Pentagon on Space Force.
The Pentagon is really establishment, really status quo. And Space Force doesn’t seem to fit their idea of priorities. Which is nuts.
But PDJT will keep pushing, I have no doubt.

daughnworks247

Here’s the company Moon Express, founded by the Indian National who came to the USA with $5 in his pocket. He wants to mine the moon. It was in my Rare Earth Element post.

Mueller and his malfeasance. Patricia McCarthy wonders what the Dems have on Mueller – apart from his decades of abusing his powers in the top echelons of our law enforcement.
Once again, I say that AG Barr not only has to make sure the entire Russia Hoax is unraveled, and reveal what Obama/Hillary/Dems did – this go back years, and Mueller, Weissmann, et al should all be exposed, sanctioned, and Disbarred.
https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/05/robert_mueller_is_a_sleazy_shameful_partisan_hack.html

Sylvia Avery

Yes. Clearly Mueller needs to be investigated, as well. Hopefully plans are in place for that.

Tonawanda

Last night on Dobbs Toensing suggested something which I have advocated for over two years: report these people to their relevant licensing agency for ethical violations.
ANYBODY can make an ethics complaint. You DO NOT have to be Hillary Clinton to report Comey for his grave, unmistakable ethics violation as described by RR.
As a practical matter, the complainant should not be a person who can be easily swept aside. It should be someone who can get publicity. This is so the agency will not game the complaint, but will have to address it seriously.
Here is the irony: the licensing agency can read about the ethics violation in the newspaper and do nothing. BUT if someone sends a copy of the article to the agency and says “This is unethical behavior that I want investigated” the agency will have to investigate.

A Fortiori

Given the positions he has held, Mueller must be a member of both the ABA and the DC Bar.

Sylvia Avery

They don’t even slow down any more. They used to pull back and regroup and come at it again. Now they just keep pushing and shoving from all directions. It is frankly terrifying.

Tonawanda

Sylvia: this is a GREAT observation. They were SO close with the election of The Beast. Her losing was a huge failure. After the 60’s/70’s they went all in on the incremental/gradualist plan (which had already been underway separately for several decades, but was re-purposed as the main plan). They knew Americans would not accept their “revolution” and so they went about it a different way. Think Ayers.
It was a wildly successful, brilliant scheme, up to and including having phony Republicans pretending to be conservatives to get elected and then take turns with other phony Republicans sabotaging anything detrimental to the gradualist communist scheme.
As with the same scheme to destroy the Catholic Church (which appears to have been irrevocably successful) the communists realized how few people are necessary to direct policy, and that the millions of necessary apparatchiks are a piece of cake to control just by resorting to the crudest human psychology.
What they are doing currently IMO is the only option, all political IEDs and reactive hysterical propaganda. Communists never give up, even if giving up makes more sense to normal people. They CANNOT re-group under present circumstances, and so what is the alternative to giving up? Like the Rosenbergs, never admit the truth, persevere in even absurd versions of “reality,” and continue blowing those vuvuzelas to drown out the other guy.

Gail Combs

“…gradualist communist scheme….” = FABIAN SOCIALISTS!
The fabians are the ‘progressives’ with a planned gradual takeover that leaves all the ‘Goodies’ intact.
The COMMUNISTS are all about VIOLENT OVER THROW of a government. Since the end goal is the same, they can and do cooperate.

Both prophetic and illuminating, Fabian Freeway documents the rise and progress of socialism in Britain and the United States and tells the story of the many early triumphs of the philosophy of socialist incrementalism known as Fabian Socialism.
Part political history, part intellectual history, Rose Martin’s Fabian Freeway traces the influence of the British Fabian Society in promoting socialism in Britain, beginning in the 1880s. The group favored gradual progress toward socialism rather than violent revolution; and it proved to be a major force in promoting British collectivism. Its influence extended to America as well, where like-minded organizations and persons enhanced its effects. Martin emphasizes Fabian influences on Wilson and FDR, and continues the discussion through the 1960’s, when the book originally appeared….
Since the end of the Cold War, however, we find that Fabian Socialism is far more dangerous than revolutionary communism. Highly attractive to so-called “reasonable” and “moderate” people, and compatible with the ideologies of so many center-left and center-right political parties, Fabian Socialism, unlike soviet-style communism, has exhibited a staying-power already shown to be much stronger than anything revolutionary communism has yet produced…

It is very important to KNOW exactly WHO the enemy is. I had an argument with the father of a friend. He INSISTED he was not a ‘Communist’ he was a Socialist. This is how they LIE their way out of accusations. — Keep changing the meaning of words. This guy was a University Prof BTW

Sylvia Avery

Good stuff right here Tonawanda! You’ve laid out the case very clearly.

Sylvia Avery

Wolfie, Tucker Carlson did a segment called “Woke Capitalism” last night. His thesis is we all used to fear that the government would infringe on our rights, but instead the threat is from large lefty corporations. They are pushing agendas that are making it increasingly difficult to buy guns, ammunition, etc., and we all know what is happening to free speech. He mentions this Salesforce deal in the segment.
I couldn’t find an isolated clip, so here’s the youtube of his whole show. The segment I’m referring to is at about 21:44. I know you’re not much for FOX News, but you might find this interesting.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shz3cet1VAI

Teagan

Sylvia…to your point, I think the “threat” by Disney and Netflix about not filming in Georgia is a good example of how leftist corporations are interfering with States’ rights. We cannot allow this to happen or they will step in and take over.
In the case of Disney, my first thought was …is this one man’s personal agenda or a Board action. Who actually makes these decisions not to sell guns or ammunition, to close bank accounts, etc?

Aubergine

What we have to be willing to do is say, “screw you, and your money,” to corporations like Disney. Don’t want to film down in GA because they have laws you don’t like, fine. But Georgia will boycott Disney. Posters, billboards, advertising, etc., all about not watching Disney because they are pro-baby-murder. How do like them apples, Disney? Wanna kill off your prospective audience before they’re born, well, pay the financial consequences.
Fire with fire, it’s the only way. Money is what they understand.

NebraskaFilly

I watched the episode and the head of Disney couched it in terms of not being able to film there because their “employees” will refuse to go to Georgia. A bigly attempt at CYA, IMO.

Its been a while since I studied this stuff, but my understanding of the concept of ownership is that I get to determine how something I buy is used. The seller does not retain the right to tell me how to use an item I buy after the purchase.
In addition to being an assault on law-abiding gun ownership, this is an erosion of private property rights.

Also targeted discrimination against every law-abiding gun owner.

Hatred is not rational – it results in self harm more often than not …

And where is the logic here? Does the laws on abortion in the State of Georgia have any impact on movie-making on location in Georgia? I would hope not really — unless these things are even more depraved. Considering how some of the Satanics were protesting against the requirement that the dead fetus should be buried or cremated, as is the standard for all other dead people this isn’t completely unlikely. But then that’s the Satanists…
Now how about this: what if the Florida legislature comes up with the same kind of restrictions as the ones in Georgia, then what will Disney have to do with their site in Orlando?

Boy, I would LOVE to see the state of Florida do just that! What sweet justice that would be.

This is such an odd story. Brits hand delivered a memo to Gen. Flynn’s team in Jan. 2017 saying Steele is hinky, the dossier is a dud. But Flynn knows nothing about it until after he’s pleaded guilty and Mueller’s team is questioning him. A whistleblower from Flynn’s old team alerts the Congressional GOP. WTH???
****
FTA:
“Congressional investigators told the Hill that in January 2017 then-U.K. national security adviser Sir Mark Lyall Grant hand-delivered a memo to soon-to-be national security adviser Michael Flynn’s team that asserted the U.K. government had doubts about the credibility of British ex-spy Christopher Steele. Recent reports suggest Steele had briefed British intelligence officials on his dossier after the 2016 presidential election, and the heads of MI5 and MI6 were made aware of the contents of the dossier by late November…
GOP investigators learned of the communique’s existence within the past few weeks by a whistleblower who was part of Flynn’s team and are pressing for answers ahead of Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom early next month…
The communique could be significant as it would have been delivered before the FBI applied for three FISA renewals against Page in 2017 using Steele’s research. Sources said Flynn was not aware of its existence until he was questioned as part of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, after he pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with a Russian envoy, and therefore Trump too was likely not told about it.”

Gail Combs

That sure sounds like a CYA for the Brits. NOTE THAT IT WAS ‘LOST’ until now when it is ‘suddenly needed’
#1. Robert Hannigan,GCHQ, personally briefed Brennan [CIA] at Langley in Spring of 2016 about suspicious interactions between Russia and the Trump Team.. link
#2. The resignation of the head of the GCHQ “for personal reasons” three days after Trump was sworn in was SUCH a coincidence…

A Fortiori

Odd indeed. I think it is unlikely that the Brits notified PDJT’s team that they knew about Steele in a feeble attempt to try to atone for their malfeasance. They had to know, based on the assistance they had provided to Hussein and Brennan’s spying operation, that neither PDJT nor Flynn are stupid enough to be mollified by this.
It is far more likely that this hand delivered note was an insurance policy of sorts, to be deployed against Flynn (and if they were lucky also against PDJT) if British participation in Hussein’s spying and entrapment activities ever came to light. I suspect Flynn saw this coming, determined not to personally receive the note, and instructed whoever received it to retain it without opening it. When Mueller asked Flynn about it, this revealed both its content and its true purpose. Thereafter, the staffer who received the note became a “whistleblower” and reported its existence to Congressional investigators.

ozzytrumpster

Mike Flynn’s not a stupid guy. If, as is probable, he was playing the deep state to counterentrap them he had to remain “ unaware” that Steele was sketchy

There are two huge reasons why the pharmaceuticals we depend upon should be manufactured in the US.
First, and foremost, it is far more difficult to protect the intellectual property associated with the pharmaceutical, and the bulk of value of a pharmaceutical is the intellectual property that goes into its creation. Disclosing the IP to a wider group of people, and allowing the IP to migrate from the US, both make protecting the IP far more difficult.
The other problem is a national security problem. Imagine if our current trade disagreement becomes more heated at a time when millions of Americans are taking pharmaceuticals made in China. Indeed, given Chinese ambitions, one has to wonder whether a lower grade version of this problem already exists.

Gail Combs

There is another part to the bullying thing.
It is a NORMAL and NECESSARY part of growing up.
I have watched my lambs and kid goats, and by one week of age they are allready ‘play fighting.’ It is when youngsters LEARN where they are in the herd hierarchy. It is how youngsters LEARN the body language that PREVENTS major fighting in the adults.
I bought a yearling mare whose Mama was herd boss. She had NEVER had to fight since Mama always stepped in to protect her and thus she never learned how to ‘speak’ to another herd member.. (Think whiny leftist two year old in an adult body) When I turned her out in a paddock with my two other mares, she was repeatedly beaten up by #2 Mare because she had not learned that when the 2nd in command told her to stay THERE she was NOT to encroach on HER territory, AND she meant it! So I tried turning her out with the Top mare who had thus far ignored her. BAD MOVE, Top Mare put her in a corner and beat the crap out of her if she dared to move an inch.
….
Humans are also ‘herd animals’ The Elite have DELIBERATELY disrupted our herds (Local Communities) and our SOCIALIZATION. In the Utube, Saturday Night with Brenden Dilley and Praying Medic They bring up how the standard family unit when I was growing up — Grandparents, Mom & Dad and kids — has now been reduced to Mom and kids and the wisdom of the older generation DOES NOT GET PASSED ALONG while the place of ‘Daddy’ is taken by the government/Communist schooling.
History, HACCP and the Food Safety Con Job shows that directly after WWII the Milner Round Table** called the Committee for Economic Development DELIBERATELY destroyed American communities just as LBJ DELIBERATELY destroyed the political power of American Churches. link

…With World War II, America saw its agricultural system intentionally subjected to political policies that radically transformed it…
This transformation was the result of organized plans developed by a group of highly powerful — though unelected — financial and industrial executives who wanted to drastically change agricultural practices in the US to better serve their collective corporate financial agenda. This group, called the Committee for Economic Development, was officially established in 1942 as a sister organization to the Council on Foreign Relations…..
Their plan was so effective and so faithfully executed by its operatives in the US government that by 1974 the CED couldn’t help but congratulate itself….
The human cost of CED’s plans were exacting and enormous.
CED’s plans resulted in widespread social upheaval throughout rural America, ripping apart the fabric of its society destroying its local economies. They also resulted in a massive migration to larger cities. The loss of a farm also means the loss of identity, and many farmers’ lives ended in suicide….

Gail, good post and so much food for thought. I guess I knew this was happening but never really thought it was deliberately planned.
But, here’s where I have some doubts…perhaps the grandparent influence no longer means Grandma is living next door or in the household, but in my circle the grandparents are far more hands on involved than mine…who lived next door. My friends think nothing of flying across country several times a year to babysit for a week, or attend special occasions of grandchildren or if close enough to attend every single sports event….and even through college years. On the other hand, none of my grandparents ever attended one activity or even special events such as graduation. My hubby’s parents/grandparents never went to one of his baseball games or awards ceremonies, even though it was only a matter of a few city blocks.
And then, of course, there’s the whole issue of grandparents stepping in to actually raise the children…i’ve Seen a lot of that, as well.

Aubergine

I actually DO live in the backyard! My grandchildren live in the “big house,” (1000 square ft. cottage built in 1893) and I live in the “little house” (used to be a garage/garden shed I converted). I get to be fairly influential, but I don’t have to fly! A win-win!

ozzytrumpster

Don’t discount the amount of childcare done by grandparents. The cost of childcare is a big concern for young parents budgets.

Few days ago, we did a whole big post about Rare Earth Elements (REEs).
MANY people contributed and we all learned REE’s are becoming important in the USA vs. China trade tension.
Bottom line –
The only rare earth element mine in the USA is Mountain Pass, California.
Mountain Pass has to send their 50K tons of REEs TO CHINA for refining – cuz the only refineries remaining, IN THE WHOLE WORLD, are in China.
We had stupid leaders……
How does this happen?
The Chinese ran all their other competition out of the market by dropping prices via state sponsored subsidies. Mountain Pass actually went through a bankruptcy in 2015.
Well.
China has imposed a 25% tariff on the importation of raw REEs, which effects only the Mountain Pass Mine, and China’s action is a direct shot at America’s ability to save this natural resource.
HERE is the interview on CNBC with the Co-Chair of Mountain Pass.
He needs help from our government – but he’s not counting on it (he’s been disappointed before).

SD did a HUGE article about why Wall Street is so perplexed on “no inflation”.
I rarely look at his stuff anymore, but it was a worthy article and one I considered writing about myself.
Here’s the shortened version:
Cheap interest rates, as we’ve had in the last decade, are a historical anomaly. The easy money was used by Wall Street — but they invested overseas. No benefit to the American worker, except those who were invested in stocks. No multiplier effect for building a factory in DesMoine or Chattanooga. No new schools, No middle class reaping the benefits, No vacations for the middle of the road workers.
Instead, we had the cartels pushing opioids.
Trump is reorienting Main Street economy as the focus.

My career imposed huge restrictions on where I could invest, and I therefore invested in funds managed by massive approved money management firms and only occasionally thought about asset allocation. A few years ago I met with a financial advisor, and was stunned about the extent to which he was recommending shifting my investments to non-US assets because that was where all the growth was going to be well into the future. Apparently, everybody knew this.

I hope you didn’t/have moved your money back to us. With ree, if the factory’s are leaving China are they not just shooting themselves in the foot?

We ALL sold those funds.
“Emerging markets”
“Pac Rim”
Makes me sick to think of how much money we moved OUT of the USA.
Well, we need a Midwest Fund, Soybean Fund, Iron Belt Fund, Midsouth Fund, etc.
Time to bring it home.
It took 30 years to hollow out the country. We could get it back in 5yrs with a little bit of cooperation from Congress.
The Tax Cuts set up the situation beautifully, and repatriation of funds is at a discount. Time is ripe.

Health violations at the PP Clinic in Missouri
FTA:
Expired meds, IV fluids, and supplies, some as old as six years
Staff using single-dose injectable medications for more than one patient to “save money”
Medications not stored properly
Some of the violations could put the clinic in legal jeopardy:
The staff did not log their abortions over 18 weeks gestation
Patients not given their Patient Bill of Rights
The clinic did not send fetal tissue for pathology evaluation
A few other hits:
The refrigerator had not been cleaned in over 1 1/2 years according to a staff member (health care assistant) who had been working in the clinic for that period of time. He had no idea who was responsible for that.
Fire extinguishers were not tested
No background checks on employees
There was dust covering equipment and supplies all over this clinic
Failed to properly sterilize instruments that are used from woman to woman
No infection control training on staff

so Portland brings porta potties and lockers to residential areas and can’t figure out that it will attract MORE homeless tent cities??? the before and after pictures are priceless…
FTA:
One of the problems that cities up and down the west coast are having right now is with homeless people using the streets and sidewalks as a bathroom. Portland and San Francisco both employ special crews of street cleaners that remove the human waste on a daily basis. One proposed solution has been to set up more public bathrooms so the homeless have someplace else to go besides the sidewalk. But an attempt at making that work in Portland isn’t proving popular with neighbors.

today’s the first sunny morning we’ve had all week…
went out to see what’s what in the garden and looks like a bear dug out most of my lilies in the back of the house…sigh…

Do you have ‘motion lights’ at your place?

Pat Frederick

no…lol…they’d be going off all the time–between the bear, coyotes, deer, raccoons, opossums, and on and on…inconsiderate buggers–they’re out having a good time while we’re trying to…ahem…er…sleep…
but we do have trail cams–

PHC

They can be effective on the perimeter, and still not drive you crazy if directed and timed properly.

Pat Frederick

we live on over a hundred acres of trees, so it’d be hard to stake out a perimeter. But we respect the wildlife and for the most part they keep their distance. I was concerned this morning, not because of the lilies really, but because the fawns are out now–and bear will go after them.
we’ve tried hard not to change the natural landscape here–we’re the intruders.
speaking of wildlife, heard I missed some hot photos of you on a motorcycle! 😀

Sue Mcdonald

I like your raised beds.we did our garden this year in a ruined Greek theme.found broken bird baths and other statuary along with decorative stepping stones with old plates embedded to place around the garden. So far it looks pretty cool. We’re going fence it in sometime this summer to keep deer out and it will look nice too.

Sue Mcdonald

I will take pics when it’s done to post.

I would love to see the pics, Sue. I would like to add another four timbers on mine – still have to bend far more than I would like. My asparagus is down the center – just had my first serving of the year last night! Yum! I put my tomato plants (only 2 – one beefsteak-style and one cherry for snacking and salads) in my old rain barrels. Not only will I not have to bend, I’ll probably need a step stool! LOL

Pat Frederick

Nebraska this is lovely!
we couldn’t have anything like this tho–the bears get curious, love to play and they would climb on it and bend it in a heartbeat…

NebraskaFilly

No doubt – I am at the edge of town so I don’t have to worry about that, altho there has been a den of foxes at my neighbor’s across the street, near his barn/horses (grandfathered).

ozzytrumpster

We used 6 meter lengths of pool pipe.( like white plumbing pipe but stronger to withstand pressure.) bent them in arches and poked the ends in stakes. Same distance apart as chicken wire. Then covered with chook wire. Made a corridor for my fruit trees. Put a wire security door on one end and a chook house at the other. Ha ha …foiled the possums and Roos and goannas. Chooks keep the weeds down, fertilise and lay eggs safely. Low hanging apples tempt them though. But better than losing them all. Added shade cloth for summer and a sprinkler system. When the sprinklers go off the chooks all rush back to their house. Me too. Sprinkler system attached to water recycling / purification tanks. Eco friendly. Supposedly drinkable but I send it to garden. All house waste water goes into this system inc toilet. In Mudgee we are in the bush, not town, so we are on tank water.

The Plan
In 2017 Mueller started the plan,
Along with crooked Weissmann, a Dimm hatchet man.
They chose partisan DemonRats to conduct a scheme
To try to frame PTrump by any and all means.
The hatred of PTrump permeated this crew,
In order to get justice, they should all recuse.
But that’s not the way corrupt DemonRats roll,
They all stayed on to dig PTrump a hole.
For two years and more they did their very best
To implicate the President per the Dimms’ behest.
They blew thirty million before they were done,
Investigating everything and everyone.
There was no collusion, none could be found.
They want to charge Trump, but there were no grounds,
So they thought up obstruction as another charge,
With evil intent on their faces writ large.
They said there were examples, and they listed ten,
Then said the law was complex, beyond their ken.
So they wrote down the matter in minute detail,
And still had no evidence, just their smearing tale.
But they knew, per their plan, they’d continue on,
Counting on the House and their DemonRat spawn.
House committees picked it up, citing oversight
“We must investigate. It’s our duty and our right.”
The Dimms lost it, one and all; all lost their minds:
They want to start over to see what they can find.
Nanzi tries to justify, mumbling in her mike
As the pressure builds behind their fragile dike.
Voters can be fooled, but only for so long;
They’ll finally burst forth, tens of millions strong.
“Investigate!” (not legislate) is the Dimms battle cry,
And we’ll make more popcorn to watch their party die.
