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.

Wheatie’s Rules:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

Visual descriptions for our dear Zoe, and for anyone else who may find them helpful:
Header Image: Is a gigantic Tree, sitting on a hill in the middle of a group of buildings and homes. The Tree reaches up into the sky, it’s branches forming an enormous canopy. Underneath the canopy, there is a bright glow shining up from within the Tree. The canopy of the tree stretches out over all the structures below.
Second Image: Is a rounded doorway at the top of a stone stairway, built into the base of an enormous Tree.  The doors are glass and there is a bright glow coming from beyond the doors. There are plants, vines and vegetation on either side of the stone steps.
Third Image: Is an open room with comfy-looking futons, a fluffy throw rug and large throw pillows on a gleaming wooden floor. There are glowing lanterns positioned around, on the floor.
Fourth Image: Is a graphic of President Trump, giving a thumbs up with his right hand. The words, “Where We Go One”, are above his head…and the words, “We Go All”, are below his image.

PoetReee in Motion
When I see a Snowflake,
What do I see?
Poet-Reeeeeeeeee.
Poet-Reeeeeeeeee in motion.
Poet-Reeeeeeeeee in motion,
Things she can’t abide.
All those liberal notions
Tell me her brain is fried.
Poet-Reeeeeeeeee in motion,
Screaming every day.
Loud, screeching emotions
To block what others say.
She’s screaming in dissent
To every imagined change,
To each and every argument
That makes Snowflakes deranged.
Poet-Reeeeeeeeee in motion
I say “How can it be?”
Such a loud commotion;
A lone screaming banshee.
Poet-Reeeeeeeeee in motion,
It’s never “either, or.”
It’s logical thought erosion,
And “My way or use the door.”
Reeeeeeeeee
Reee, Reee, Reee, Reee, Reee
Reee, Reee, Reee, Reee, Reee
Reee, Reee, Reee, Reee, Reee

Plain Jane

LOL. Fun one Bakocarl. Thanks.

It’s funny that you posted this tonight, Bakocarl…
I was just revisiting some saved videos and re-watched this one which I had posted OT so many months ago.
Sue Ann Nivens perfectly describing a Snowflake….

Harry!! That is freakin ADORABLE!!! Nailed.IT.!!!

She blinded me with settled science, Reee😉

Marica

WTh??!!! What IS THAT??? LOL!!!

Harry Lime

Why does that frog look like Michael Moore?

Plain Jane

That frog reminded me that tomorrow or I guess today, the big bullfrog that has been singing to me for the past two weeks will be dislodged from his spot on our winter pool cover. The pool will be opened in the morning. I hope he doesn’t decide to jump onto the solar cover and take a bath in the clorinated water.
The first week the pool gets opened DH has to rescue squirrels that are used to fetching a drink of water that accumulates on the winter cover. One year we had to rescue the neighbors little basset hound who crawled under the gate and fell into the pool. His legs were too short to get out. He probably was chasing a squirrel. We found him in there when we got home from some place. Poor little guy was treading water who knows how long.

Plain Jane

Thanks for the idea Wheatietoo. Not to sure the squirrels are smaft enough to use it, but maybe.

Teagan

Plain Jane….We lived in the meadows of the intracoastal waterway (it was great until the EPA allowed the insects to take over)…and also had a pool. Our biggest problem with “critters” in the pool were the turtles. And, of course, they are superb divers (always in the deep end, of course). It was a duel between hubby with the net on a long pole and the evasive turtles.
BTW, by the time we moved from that house, the only time we could swim was at night with the lights off to avoid the dreaded green heads (aka horse flies.). When we first moved there we had lovely gardens but within a few years couldn’t stand to be outside for more than a few minutes because of the biting insects.

Plain Jane

Wow. Gov stop the spraying? What a shame.

BB

Wasn’t it timely that there was a news conference about the Virginia Beach shooter during the last 15 minutes of Hannity tonight. When it started at 9:45 I just knew it would conclude at 10:00 PM and sure enough it did. How predictable!

bflyjesusgrl

It actually started at 9:33 and took out the last half of Hannity’s show!! Several speakers, lots of press questions. I’m finding the timing very suspect by the Dems wrt POTUS’ tweet.
Never let a crisis go to waste, right??
I’ve set DVR for next 2 re-airing of Hannity’s show, hoping to catch the whole thing…doubtful. Will Probably have to get video from Fox.

michaelh

Apparently Hannity is must watch TV.

bflyjesusgrl

POTUS thought this episode was. The first half was really good, Each person contributing to dialogue. Laying out what happened. GOVT has been abusing powers since at least 2012, must be investigated, and corrected. Then STOP🥶

michaelh

One of the folks here will dig out the full episode and will get it posted! Deep state can’t hide that easily 😉

bflyjesusgrl

Yeah I’ve already checked. All the utubes include the press interruption and Fox has not yet posted 5/31 episode. Hopefully tomorrow.

Sylvia Avery

Thanks Wheatie!!!

Sylvia Avery

Yeah, the panel had really just got started when they interrupted. The panel looked great and I was enjoying it…until.

Sylvia Avery

It does, indeed.
Per my DISH schedule guide they claim to be showing Hannity again at 1:00 am, but when special events happen it tends to screw everything up so I’m kind of doubtful.

Marica

Wheatie!!! You have. once again , Outdone YOURSELF!!! Opened up the post and just said…WOW!!! Been a truly Roller Coaster WEEK!! Lots of Ups and Downs!!!! We have cried real tears!!! and then…God gives us a break in such unexpected ways!!!! I can see you poured your heart and soul into this!! Thank you doll!! Blessed to know you!!
LOVE THIS TREE!! (and where Wolfie’s avatar sits in it–(right in the heart) It might be my favorite! especially at this time in our crazy historical timeline of American history!!
And your sweet and subtle tribute to PHC! Beautiful!! Wheatie!! I will always see you as the “cream of the crop”!!

Hey–God gave Patrick a big shot of adrenaline.. or his precious courage–between his darling wife needing his attention–God gave us all more time with him!! I feel Blessed!😘🤗🤗

Wheatie, Thank you for this article. Heartfelt “hat tip” to our Warrior. Blessed we have this incredibly comfortable and enlightening tree:-)

Alison

Ahhh Wheatie – I echo the accolades of others; you always set just the right mood with your visuals and music. As soon as I saw your song title, I knew … and I was pleased to see “the Marlboro Man” our very own PHC ‘cuz I missed his earlier photos 💖💖👏👏 Very touching, Wheatie.
The thought, content and arrangements each of you hosts put into your posts is so creative and meaningful. Again and again I thank Wolfie and each of you for the legacy you are leaving as a footprint in the Trump Era.
For PHC and Deplorable Patriot and all you others who are enduring current painful transitions, floods, tornadoes and family illnesses, I am praying for each of you. I seem to be absent when so many “spurts” of conversation are occurring in the threads, but know I am always thinking of you.
I LOVE my QTreepers 😘😍🥰

Sylvia Avery

Love you, too, Alison.

I saw that picture in Wheatie’s post and thought “I do not follow Hollywood very closely, so why is Wheatie posting a black and white picture of a movie star, and who is it?”

ForGodandCountry

Actual text of Obrador letter to POTUS….
President Donald Trump:
I am aware of your latest position in relation to Mexico. To be clear, I wish to express that I do not desire confrontation. The peoples and nations that we represent deserve that, in case of conflict in our diplomatic relations -no matter the magnitude- we resort to dialogue and we act carefully and responsibly.
The best president of Mexico, Benito Juarez, maintained excellent relations with the republican hero Abraham Lincoln. Later, during the oil expropriation, the democratic President Franklin D. Roosevelt understood the profound reasons behind President -and patriot- Lazaro Cardenas´ actions to protect our sovereignty. By the way, president Roosevelt was a titan of liberty. The first to proclaim the four fundamental freedoms: of speech, of worship, from want, and from fear.
These serve as the cornerstone of our policy on migration. Humans beings do not leave their homes for pleasure, but for necessity. It is why, from the beginning of my administration, I proposed to you that we cooperate in helping and developing Central American nations with productive investments to create jobs and solve this crisis.
You well know that we are fulfilling our responsibility, within legal boundaries and mindful of human rights, to stop migrants from reaching the northern border. I too wish to remind you that in a short span of time, Mexicans will not need to turn to the United States, and that migration will be optional, not obligatory. We are fighting corruption -Mexico´s biggest problem- like never before! As such, our country will become a social power. Our countrymen will be able to work and be happy where they were born, where their families are, their costumes and cultures.
President Trump: Social issues are not resolved with taxes or coercive tactics. How will you all of a sudden turn the country of solidarity to the migrants of the world to a ghetto, a closed space, where those seeking -with effort, and hard work- to be free from want are stigmatized, mistreated, persecuted, expelled, and deprived of justice? The Statue of Liberty is not an empty symbol.
With all due respect, and respecting your sovereignty to say it, the motto “America first” is a fallacy because until the end of time, beyond any national boundaries, justice, and solidarity prevail.
Specifically, mister President: I propose that we deepen dialogue, that we search for wholesome alternatives to the migrant crisis and, please, remember that I am not lacking in valour, that I am not a coward or timid, but that I act by principle: I believe in the policies that, among other things, were invented to avoid confrontation and war. I do not believe in lex talionis, or in “eye for an eye”, because if we did believe in them, we’d wind up blind. I believe that we statesmen, and to a bigger extent men of Nation, are obligated to find peaceful solutions to controversies, and to try and carry out the beautiful dream of non violence.
Lastly, I propose that you instruct your staff -if it is not inconvenient- to attend a meeting with members of our government, headed by Mexico’s Secretary of Foreign Relations, who will arrive in Washington D.C. tomorrow, so that we can reach an agreement that is beneficial to both nations.
Nothing by force, everything through reason, and rights!
Your friend,
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador
President of Mexico
-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x
President Communist Bean Eater
I received your incredibly insulting letter. Our position on this matter is very easily understood, and just as easily remedied.
Let me begin by stating some inarguable facts. Mexico’s economy needs the USA far MORE than the USA’s economy needs Mexico. Moreover, it is a fact that your country has become a parasite that feeds itself, to a significant degree, off of my country AND at a tremendous annual cost to American taxpayers.
The remedies to the tariffs that are to be imposied by us upon your nation lies entirely with you. Stop the illegal immigration coming from your country into America. Until that happens, the tariffs imposed on your country will simply offset the costs that your refusal and/or inability to secure your borders impose on US taxpayers.
I urge you to act promptly. These tariffs will be escalating each and every month you delay. We have no interest in harming Mexico economically, but if we are forced to choose between harm to your nation or harm to ours, we choose harm to yours….just as you would choose for Mexico if the situation was reversed.
I urge you to act with all haste and speed to secure your borders, for the sake of your nation’s economy as well as it’s people. The remedy to this situation lies in your hands, not mine, and we will not be held responsible for the consequences of your inability or refusal to act promptly to correct this situation.
Buen dia!
Donald J. Trump
President
Unite States of America

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Thank you. Obrador’s letter just pisses me off something fierce. Not only is it full of communist lies, sneakery, manipulation, and Orwellian euphemisms – it even cites the WICKED socialist FDR, who invited communists DIRECTLY into our government, thereby leading to the deaths of millions over the next century.
FDR’s four freedoms are a SACRILEGE – they are two real ones and two socialist manipulations – two false freedoms DESIGNED to sabotage the world, as SOCIALISTS THEMSELVES created WANT and FEAR.
If anything, you were too kind to Obrador, but I understand. The PAIN is COMING.

Gail Combs

Wolfie you beat me to it. Those two false freedoms really stuck out!
And FDR??? He out does OH! Bummer when it comes to Treason against his country.
FDR CONFISCATED personally owned GOLD from American citizens AND GAVE IT TO THE INTERNATIONAL BANKERS!
FDR is the Son of Satan that agreed to the USA giving up her soverignty!
Former World Trade Organization Director-General Pascal Lamy tells you point blank that the EU is the template for the desired World Government and it has been in the plans since the 1930s. FDr was the US president during the 1930s that AGREED to this plan.

All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s — when turning inwards led to economic depression, nationalism and war. All, including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty… (wwwDOT)theglobalist.com/pascal-lamy-whither-globalization/”

Lamy is quite blunt in stating national sovereignty is passe.

…more than half a century ago that the Frenchman Jean Monnet, one of the shapers of post-war Europe, said, “The sovereign nations of the past can no longer provide a framework for the resolution of our present problems. And the European Community itself is no more than a step towards the organizational forms of tomorrow’s world.” His assessment was as valid then as it is now….
(wwwDOT)theglobalist.com/storyid.aspx?StoryId=8216

Lamy indicates that an European Union like super state is the goal.

grandmaintexas

They can shove it where the sun don’t shine.. That letter from Obrador infuriated me. Go get the commies Mr. President!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Globalist scum.
WORLD-NAZIS.

Steve in Lewes

Per AMLO (aka POS) – “… president Roosevelt was a titan of liberty.”
Who is he fcking kidding ! FDR was one of the biggest commies in USA.
He tried to stack the Supreme Court, he interred Japanese-Americans…
His New Deal BS was the biggest infringement upon individual liberties ever imposed upon the American citizen.
FG&C – I would respecfully amend your PDJT with the following –
AMLO, you mention that, “we cooperate in helping and developing Central American nations with productive investments”; you seem to forget that the US spends billions of dollars on foreign aid to Mexico and Central American countries, that investment seems to be a waste of American Taxpayer money.
Since Mexico and the Cen American countries appear to mismanage these funds, we will suspend all foreign aid immediately.
Since you seem unable to control the Cartels and/or are bought by the Cartels, I will increase our military presence on the border with orders to cross the border to deter further illegal crossings before stepping upon US soil…this is considered an invasion and I will take any measures necessary to eliminate human and drug trafficking specifically aimed at the Cartels. Any intervention by Mexican Military to prevent this action against the Cartels will be met with force as well.
Until further notice, I will also issue a directive to my State Dept to halt all travel to Mexico by American citizens with the intention to visit for vacation/pleasure purposes.

Another fun one . . . resurrected and modified.
The Graveyard Shift
As I was trollin’ late one night,
Just screwin’ with minds as I might,
I stumbled onto The Q Tree.
Now, I thought, this is just for me.
I’ll mess their minds a little while
With clever words and artful guile,
Then leave them all in such a mess
That they’ll cry “Mommy!” in distress.
So I crept in to ply my trade
And throw some skillful late night shade.
Oh, so easy they’re bumbling chumps;
Those drooling fools all support Trump.
I’ll make some posts just bidin’ my time
To lure them in with words sublime,
Then when they think I’m on their side,
I’ll strike and leave them petrified.
Now, here it comes, I’m gettin’ close,
Ready to post my hateful dose.
There! It’s done! I’ve ruined their day.
They’ll rue this time I came their way.
But wait, what’s this that I now see?
There’s a wolf hiding in The Tree!
Hiding behind branch, leaf and bud
With big, white fangs a-dripping blood.
They slash and gnash and bite real deep.
Alas! I’m doomed, now I must creep
Back to my cellar in my chair
And cry for mommy’s loving care.
Now, there’s a moral to this tale
For future trolls if they assail
The Q Tree with the friends of Trump,
To all beware lest they be chumps.
There’s a grave shift late at night
That settles in when there’s no light.
You don’t see them, but they’re there,
Lurking in their leafy lairs.
Big birds with beaks that rip and tear;
Talons that gouge lest you beware.
Mean old birds with caustic tongues,
To breach your throat, rip out a lung.
They wait and watch for any trolls
To eat their brains and steal their souls.
So, trolls beware, if fun you crave,
The Q Tree is your early grave.

Teagan

now we need a picture of a creepy, ever-vigilant tree ready to protect our values….shovels on hand.

ForGodandCountry

I’ve seen it suggested that Mueller is a grey or even a white hat.
Well…..
BULLSHIT to that that theory! Mueller’s presser shot that idea right in it’s head. Dead. Gone. Finished.
Quote:
“Mueller would not say his team found obstruction but then offered weasel words to the effect that they didn’t find that the president did not commit a crime, noting that charging him was not an option.
There are several sickening aspects to yesterday. First, as Sean Davis at The Federalist noted, we had Robert Mueller trying to propose a new legal theory that an uncharged person was not innocent. Not only does that flip the presumption of innocence on its head—positing now that someone is guilty until that person can prove himself or herself innocent—it also shows that Mueller intended to muddy the waters and wants to undercut this president.
Now Mueller and the Left are signaling to the country that a political opponent can help instigate an investigation based on false premises through partisan propaganda or through illegally leaked memos, without proof of any wrongdoing, and that such an attempt by someone to defend oneself against such actions will now be construed as obstruction of justice.
If we accept these innovations suggested by Mueller’s actions, we will now be saying that due process and the presumption of innocence are dead.“
https://amgreatness.com/2019/05/30/democrats-have-always-wanted-to-impeach-trump/
This is PRECISELY what the filth at Lawfare blog (Ben Wittes & Co.) want. They want to turn the presumption of innocence on its head and put the burden of proof of innocent on the accused. They are filthy, corrupt, lying, manipulative, screeching, no good, vile, poo-throwing monkeys.

JasonD

Exactly – and Mueller’s action will ensure that they cannot STOP throwing filth.
In the run up to 2020, who do you vote for? Filth trowing monkeys who have not legislated ONE thing, or the incumbent President presiding over everything good happening in the USA.
This action by Mueller makes it IMPOSSIBLE for Dims to act like adults – think about that and what it implies.
Muller KNOWS DECLAS is imminent – that it will be impossible for reasonable people not to see the truth. Dims know this too, which is why they are screeching about DECLAS – they are Schiffing themselves.
Why does Mueller seem to attack POTUS precisely when it is pointless? Mueller’s action HELPS Trump by making the difference between the Dims and the VSG as stark as can be …

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Interesting, isn’t it, that the two of you can see the exact same action, even see the exact same consequences…but come to diametrically opposed conclusions on the motive behind the act.

JasonD

Yes, it is the conundrum of being human. Our underlying value systems / world view and personalities all play a role in how we see the world.
You can only see that which your mind is prepared for. This is trivially true in kindergarten, but there are also psych studies/experiments that demonstrate this for adults. It is also logically obvious, once you think about it.
To the specifics of Mueller – I do not know if he is working actively for MAGA, coordinating behind the scenes with a team to dismantle the coup, or whether he is actually part of the coup. At this stage, it no longer matters to me wrt MAGA. Mueller either gets a commendation or goes to prison. The evidence, which we do not have, but team Trump presumably does, will determine this.
I just see that whatever the Dims / Enemies of the state do next, it all works FOR MAGA. The outcome of the coup is now determined – they lost. Wiley E coyote is over the cliff edge, and the descent has commenced. The MOAR they double down on their behaviour – the worse it is for them
So to be clear, I am not stating a strong opinion on Mueller’s hat colour – I am leaning to his being on the side of the good (“to save himself”). I am now convinced (I previously thought it probable) that the appointment of the SC was part of the plan – telegraphed by POTUS in the Lester Holt interview. POTUS knowing that he was innocent with no possible ties to “muh Russia” would obviously have fed into that decision – plus the “dossier” was so pathetic that it telegraphed their lack of anything substantive to be concerned about. Mueller’s 4 hr meeting the day before with RR and POTUS leads me to conclude that Mueller was “in on” the sting. Do I know this? Of course not – that is where the evidence leads me.
Everything that Mueller has done has worked out well for POTUS – which is what I was pointing out. And for Mueller to FINALLY stick his head over the parapet when the chess game is in check mate? One has to believe that Mueller is not stupid. So how does it make sense for him to declare his allegiance with the coup, when it actually works FOR POTUS??
And of course, all of this is just my opinion, could all be wrong ….

Plain Jane

Really neat job on the thread Wheatie.

https://thehill.com/opinion/white-house/446394-dershowitz-supreme-court-could-overrule-an-unconstitutional-impeachment
“The president is not above the law, but neither is Congress, whose members take an oath to support, not subvert, the Constitution. And that Constitution does not authorize impeachment for anything short of high crimes and misdemeanors.
Were Congress to try to impeach and remove a president without alleging and proving any such crime, and were the president to refuse to leave office on the ground that Congress had acted unconstitutionally, there would indeed be such a constitutional crisis. And Supreme Court precedent going back to Marbury v. Madison empowers the justices to resolve conflicts between the executive and legislative branches by applying the Constitution as the supreme law of the land.”

I think appellate courts (SC is one) regularly decide “sufficiency of the evidence” questions in various contexts, whether LEGALLY there is enough evidence (for examples) to constitute probable cause, or to support a conviction for a crime.
Usually this is done retrospectively, looking back at an already established record, at the completion of the process under review. As a practical matter, this would mean that the SC would only review the basis for impeachment IF and WHEN the President were already removed from office.
I cannot believe the SC would review the sufficiency of the original charges, find them inadequate, and then direct that the President be re-installed. What a nightmare.
Given the legally unique circumstances of impeachment, it makes more sense for SC to intervene (if requested by the President) and to have a rapid process of review, similar to Bush v Gore. Then each article of impeachment would be reviewed, assuming as true the facts underlying each, and a determination would be made as a matter of law whether they satisfied the standard of “high crime and misdemeanor”. Essentially, in order to negate the impeachment under a particular article, the SC (I think) would have to conclude that the alleged behavior LEGALLY did not meet the standard. For instance, talking about firing Mueller under NO circumstances could meet the standard, or protesting your innocence or impugning a government investigation under no circumstances could meet the standard, but was simply 1st Am. protected speech.
It was interesting to me at VSG’s spontaneous press conference before the commencement speech he said something significant. He emphasized that the standard for impeachment was high crimes AND misdemeanors. He very specifically stressed the word “and”.
This strikes me as an actually very subtle and esoteric but highly legally significant bit of statutory construction. It implies that the President and his lawyers (very likely including Dershowitz) have already reviewed and discussed the coming impeachment, and part of that review was assessing the various anticipated articles under the Constitutional standard of “high crimes and misdemeanors.” It would not surprise me whatsoever if a draft brief has already been written for the expedited appeal to the SC challenging the “predicates” (as Barr would say) for impeachment. And the brief would necessarily discuss the meaning of high crimes AND misdemeanors.
My guess is that whatever precise legal interpretation the President’s lawyers give to the standard, the underlying principle will be this: the phrase “high crimes and misdemeanors” is NOT a loose, supply your own pet peeve type of standard, but one designed to PREVENT the “criminalization” of political differences, and to PREVENT impeachment from being a process of getting revenge for losing an election.

Wow, great thoughts Tonawanda. I, too, noticed the emphasis on hc AND misdemeanors, but I didn’t think it through to the logical conclusion as you did. I’m sure you are absolutely correct.
I always enjoy reading your comments. TY so much.

Thank you!

The DEMOCRAT Majority House is out of order – is ignoring their sworn duties – in order to participate in Lawfare, Obstruction of GOVERNMENT, and other forms of Negligence of their sworn and moral duties – for the sake of PARTISAN POLITICS!!!
The Democrat House are acting with the same personality traits as their putrid, perfidious, petty, pompous, prideful, presumptuous, petulant, pretentious, pandering, prevaricating leaders – Øbnoxious and Hillrotten.

IMO:
1) The Dems are not going to impeach. They have nothing, and they lack the support of the majority of their caucus. It’s why they’re changing the words to “criminal investigations” – to continue tainting the President.
It’s also why Adam Schiff is shook up – “demanding” information given to AG Barr – for which he isn’t legally entitled – separation of powers and all that… and ongoing investigations. 🙂
2) We’re already nearing the campaign season for 2020, so it’s a death knell for any House Rep who signs on board – except for their radicals already located in “safe” Dem districts.
3) IF, IF, IF it should get out of the House, it’s going no where in the Senate – Mitch McConnell isn’t going to endanger the GOP Senate seats, neither do I see him betraying POTUS at this point.
4) IF, IF, IF, it should get by the Senate – President DJT would not resign – no reason to. He is going to let the Commies take over the country – let there be a Constitutional Crisis – we’d be having a Civil War before that happened.
5) The Supreme Court would intervene before it even became a question of DJT stepping down. Appeals and stays happen. The Dems and GOP have never known a fighter like Donald J Trump. He is going to quit on us or this country.
6) Americans are fair-minded, and they don’t like bullies. Enough has been revealed, and is going to be revealed about the Dems, and Never Trumpers that’s going to make Americans give them the stinkeye.
Rejoice and be glad. AG Barr appears to be wanting to save the country as much as POTUS – they’re going to do it legally and by the book.
Just my two-cents. 🙂

ladypenquin

Grrr. He is “NOT” going to quite on us or the country!

A2 provides coverage of Defense Sec. Shanahan in Shangri-La.
**********
“I watched Acting Secretary of Defense Shanahan’s plenary speech (the first on the venue) at the Shangri-La security dialogue meeting this morning.
Fantastic. The questions were very interesting after the prepared remarks, especially the PLA guy. Secretary Shanahan turned it on it’s head, with a scalpel not a blunt instrument.
Unmissable.
You may watch it at the site below, but may have to wait for a replay.
Well done. He gives lots of details about US presence in the Indo-Pacific. Very skilled and intelligent man.”

Type in something like Praying medic and you get Utubes that are MONTHS and YEARS OLD! it is almost impossible to find the newest ones without going to the persons website. Utube certainly will not help.
It used to be if you watched a Q vid other Q vids showed in the side bar. Now all you get are the FAKE NEWS vids.

I used to watch an occasional Mark Taylor interview and found the same thing…often very old, and of course, no dates attached. I’ve now basically given up u less someone gives a current link to follow.

Good Job Miss Katie!!
Yep, this is the last 10minutes of GOLD!! We missed PapaD and Caputo. Pardon George, Stone, Flynn IMMEDIATELY!! Also JOHN Solomon and what to watch. 5 Declass buckets, PLUS 5 things to watch. Criminal Investigation w/Durham, Administrative Investigation w/IG, Overarching look that Barr is doing, FISA Court litigations, Congressional Oversight hearings dirt to be revealed.
⭐️⭐️MOST IMPORTANT- The Mueller Report is going to unravel, factual and inaccurate information, material information withheld!!
Txt msg- Page was preparing talking points for Comey to brief Obama.
DID NOT LIKE What Victoria said, NO INDICTMENTS for Biden and Obummer(they knew), GRRR🤬🤬🤬
Cudos to Doug Schoen, the only Democrat that realizes the truth and wants to know from the Hag, what, why and how???

Sylvia Avery

Great summary. It was worth watching and you definitely want the full show. If the version you are watching cuts over into the press conference about the shooter, or just replays the first part again you aren’t watching the actual full hour show.

Every time this happens I wonder WHO is writing the script for all of this coordinated stuff! It reminds me of the old James Bond movies with the manipulative, white cat-holding evil person hidden away inside a fortress directing the action with mindless zombies doing whatever they are ordered to do.

Pretty darn close to the truth except no selfrespecting cat would go near such EVIL!

Did they make homemade banana pudding with the wafers? Always one of my favorite desserts, and without Nilla Wafers, not possible!

Pat, my mother, with whom I was very close, died over 25 years ago but she still “visits” me occasionally in my dreams. We have the best time, and like you I wake with a smile, and I always tell my husband,,,”Mom visited with me last night.”
I think we are fortunate!

Love the suspenders! 🙂 Vanilla wafers….mmm, what memories!
My son loves bacon to the point that in his pretend world bacon was the money with which his imaginary characters were paid. He never had vanilla wafers or they might have been the bonus money! 😉
(All of the bacon pictures, esp. on Saturdays, in the other treehouse is one of the early ways I knew I belonged and had found an internet hangout…along with the Lord’s Prayer setting the stage each day, the focus on facts and the conservatism. The fellowship and friendships I observed were a wonderful bonus)

Deplorable Patriot

IDK, the other morning I read one story after another that had me weeping.
OTOH, I read a marketing book about cultures that I refer to a lot, and in it, the author discusses UK and the fact that their men really don’t pay much attention to their women. Maybe that’s a factor.

Pat Frederick

I confess to crying a lot more since President Trump took office. There has been an increase in patriotism, and respect for our military and soldiers and so I have gotten to see more and more stories of selfless acts of service people. More stories of their valor and service are being celebrated in the WH. More attention to the serious side effects of service and the brave men and women who serve. I cry for their stories being brought to light…and the obvious love and respect our POTUS has for these wonderful people. I cry thankful tears for POTUS as well, seeing his love for us and our country. Every time I hear “I’m Proud to be an American…” I shed tears of gratitude.
and I’m way more than 26…
