Dear MAGA: 20190901 Open Topic

This cheerfully and purposefully reposted STILL SINGING FROM THE STATE OF THE UNION SUNDAY 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.


Say what you want, comment on what other people said, comment on people’s comments. Keep it civil.  Treehouse rules, but expect lots of QAnon.


See the January 1st daily thread for the rules of the road, which are few but important.


Remember – your greatest gift to President Trump is FIVE WORDS: I AM PRAYING FOR YOU

Presidential Seal w/ Q tail


“We must choose whether we are defined by our differences — or whether we dare to transcend them.

We must choose whether we will squander our inheritance — or whether we will proudly declare that we are Americans.

We do the incredible. We defy the impossible. We conquer the unknown.

This is the time to re-ignite the American imagination.

This is the time to search for the tallest summit, and set our sights on the brightest star.

This is the time to rekindle the bonds of love and loyalty and memory that link us together as citizens, as neighbors, as patriots.

This is our future — our fate — and our choice to make. I am asking you to choose greatness.

No matter the trials we face, no matter the challenges to come, we must go forward together.

We must keep America first in our hearts. We must keep freedom alive in our souls. And we must always keep faith in America’s destiny — that one Nation, under God, must be the hope and the promise and the light and the glory among all the nations of the world!

Thank you. God Bless You, God Bless America, and good night!”

— President Donald J. Trump, 2019 State of the Union Address

Thank you Triple T.
We’re all awake tonight!

It’s an even more amazing speech today than when he first delivered it.
Historic.

Need to catch up on Hong Kong. Thank you to all here keeping us up to date. QTree’s news desk is hopping this weekend.

Things are definitely heating up there:

ChiComs would have their Kamalabots doing that to us, if CHINA can RE-TAKE THE WHITE HOUSE.

wolfmoon1776

Check out what Bannon said about Hong Kong and the CCP:

Deplorable Patriot

I wish these videos weren’t an hour long! It kind of limits watching them. At least for me. Of course, I could crochet….

Tonawanda

DP, you will not regret the 45 minutes.

Deplorable Patriot

I want to get through the rest of the early morning stuff first. I have a long day ahead. I pretty much had it already planned out.

kalbokalbs

Yea. I usually run the video in background and open another window to push though posts. Easy to click back and forth. Surely I miss some details, but can always play back a bit. Or simply push on.

Tonawanda

1) Very rarely will you see an interview as enlightening, coherent and brilliant as this one.
2) Bannon is all substance and insight, no platitudes, conventional thinking, or blatant self-motivation. In this interview and the one with Owens, Bannon is not only brilliant, but he also shows himself to be a gracious man, which made me like and admire him. In both interviews both young women had moments where they became tongue tied or stumbles a little and Bannon always “rescued” them in a very subtle, almost unnoticeable way but obviously motivated to enhance their stature.
3) This interview clarified my understanding of the trade war as well as my understanding of Hong Kong. Bannon says the trade war is an “armistice,” which is a very telling word. Sundance said long ago that VSG is mirroring the Panda face while grappling with the dragon, and what Bannon says makes that observation more vivid. Trump is not merely or even primarily involved in a trade war, he is engaged in war, period (not what Bannon said, my observation based on what Bannon said). Wolf has been making this same point.
4) Bannon has great respect for The Epoch Times.
5) I would LOVE to hear Bannon’s analysis of 2020 as it stands today. Interesting, he says Biden will not be the nominee because of China and gives his reasons why.
6) My only quibble: Bannon says the two “foundational” aspects of VSG’s presidency are immigration/Wall, and China. If by China he means trade, then yes, but otherwise I do not think China itself was a foundational aspect, although it has become one. Also, draining the swamp is one of the three foundational aspects, equal in importance if not surpassing the other two (immigration/Wall, trade).
7) When viewed through the perspective of an ongoing war between America and China, many, many other issues, foreign and domestic, take on an entirely different look.

Deplorable Patriot

Managed to make it through, although I was multi-tasking.
I think the big point he makes is that the Chinese Communist Party needs Hong Kong’s money in order to carry out their totalitarianism. It took the Hong Kong protests, which can no longer be ignored, to shine a spotlight on the panda and the dragon, and remind the world what is going on over there.
The other thing that I found interesting was that Xi and one other person know the global score, but they are overridden by the hardliners, ultimately.

wolfmoon1776

Love these comments, and very much agreed.
As to how foundational China is to the Trump presidency – allow me to do what Sundance always hated – speaking in riddles – because it is fundamental to the Q approach, which is to “educate up to the very top of the classification firewalls – particularly when stuff is inherently unbelievable”.
I do not know if Bannon has been “read in” at levels ABOVE Q, but I suspect that if he was not, then he has somehow gained some serious understanding of those realities by “doing the math”.
I believe that there are many things “China-related” which are hidden behind many layers of classification, that Bannon is either privy to, or understanding of, and that much of what we see revolves around these “unspeakables”.
Everybody is trying to CHANGE THE FUTURE, if not to OWN THE FUTURE. China’s schtick – matching certain others – is to pretend like they’re not doing anything, much less trying to be the biggest part of that pie.
Even though CHINA is not a significant part of the Corso book – mostly because Corso was largely out of the loop for the Clinton years, preceding his death in 1998, there are huge implications for China just by working backwards and going WTF on China – asking WHAT did China know – WHAT did China get – WHO has China been dealing with.
It changes a lot of calculations. And it’s ALL HIDDEN.

I agree, drain the swamp means a lot to voters and has been a Trump pillar right from the escalator ride. It’s a mistake to neglect it.
In his defense I think the bigger picture of China confrontation (trade war PLUS military deterrent PLUS an indirect but determined anti-communist policy) and the immigration+WALL (the wall is bigger than we know -> FOREIGN MONEY, BLACK MARKET TRADE, BROWNSHIRTS, and much more) are the most critical aspects of draining the swamp. Taking on those two huge issues will undercut most of the Washington dynamic that empowers the swamp. These are BIG issues that drive an overwhelming amount of DC corruption – so BIG that confronting it directly is ineffective. Cleaning house at the DOJ+FBI+State+CIA+etc+etc+etc is CRITICAL but does NOTHING if Congress and Lobbyist swamp critters are left to roam freely in the muck. And as bad as DOJ+FBI+State+CIA+etc+etc+etc are, the DC swamp is much bigger and deeper than just killing a few nasty crocodiles.

wolfmoon1776

One more point about this journalist.
I don’t know who she is, and I don’t know what her background or politics are. But the way that she tries to subtly foist OWNERSHIP of the protest and protesters onto America by her question which Bannon “ping-pongs” very skillfully back to China, without being obvious – the way she tries to make it OUR problem and not CHINA’S problem – that is CLASSIC agency psychological work, disguised as journalism.
Many people who function as fronts and meme-carriers for the ChiComs actually have NO IDEA that they are in fact helping mainland China. I knew people from Taiwan or Hong Kong who would swear up and down they were not mainland minions – some even thinking themselves OPPONENTS – but people with smarter and more cynical suspicions, who I was fortunate enough to know, spotted them as worker bees of the mainland, and sure enough – THEY WERE – no matter what they thought of themselves.
Nevertheless, what she’s doing seems VERY close to intentional. It might not be her – it might be coming from her editors – it might be coming from her own information sources and influencers. But in any case…..
NOTED.
She was doing EXACTLY what I predicted the mainland would do. FLIP problem ownership on US.

michaelh

Most people are really NOT that deeply in touch with the ideas and opinions they’ve absorbed. They haven’t done the hard philosophical work of understanding why they think the way they do – and frankly, they have no idea how pre-programmed they are. Minds full of dusty cobwebs in need of cleaning out.
I’ve thought about it as anti-virus for the mind. A detection system which recognizes the signatures and hashes of all the information the mind receives from any channel, whether conversational, from reading, media consumption, etc. Each idea virus (Dawkins’ original notion of a “meme” derived from the notion of “enthymeme”) has an origin, narrative, and a solution.
The best starting place is of course Logic. Most people today have not had any real introduction to logic because some radical leftists hated the fact that it used to be a required course.

wolfmoon1776

You know – all of this worthwhile thinking, simply is not possible with the Fake News in charge. Getting rid of Fake News was the smartest thing I ever did. The Fake Normal that they sell is a CURSE.

wolfmoon1776

Yeah, this is a good one. It’s a long read, and I’m not in 100% agreement with all of the readings of Q, but I think it’s very important to understand the players and references.
One thing I’m not sure of – and which Paul doesn’t cover – is the SNOW WHITE reference.
Many of the posts end:
Snow White
Godfather III
Q
I’ve never seen a really solid explanation of “Snow White” meaning anything or anybody in particular. Not like he does here with Godfather III.

Linda

Didn’t Snow White have something to do with the 7 CIA supercomputers that got shut down? They were all named after the 7 dwarfs, so Snow White must be related.

wolfmoon1776

Hmmmmmm……….

daughnworks247

Linda – that’s what I thought. 7 supercomputers = 7 dwarfs. Is Gina Haspel Snow White?

redlegleader68

… and who is Snow White fighting in the story?

phoenixrising37

Snowden is Snow White —

Chris

I was clicking on those posts,and read snowhite= snowden = c_a
and yes the super computers
somewhere around the vatican/Pell/austrailia/ pedo connection

Deplorable Patriot

The entire Pell thing is a move to discredit him and keep him quiet. Pope Benedict XVI put him in the Vatican Bank to work on cleaning it up. Francis removed him, sent him back to Australia, and he was charged with sexual assault after an accusation with a story that is not plausible. I’ve seen enough accounts to believe that Pell was set up, and the current anti-Catholic sentiment was exploited to essentially shut him up without having to do anything illegal. Immoral, and injust, yes. But most of us Catholics who are paying attention don’t think Francis really cares about that.

Tonawanda

The evidence against Pell seemed weak, and there were logical problems with it based on the facts as reported. But it is very hard (IMO) to have evidence fairly evaluated when there is widespread public clamoring involved.

Deplorable Patriot

One of the CIA computers that was pulled offline one night with the entire Q community watching. It was highly entertaining.

Sue Mcdonald

I believe the snow white mentions had to do with the clowns sattelites being taken off line .they were named after the 7 dwarves.

GA/FL

Serran is a very brave truth warrior!

phoenixrising37

Yes Georgia… and by way of info, Paul lives in Brazil………………..
His most recent THREAD connects a number of dots, but the one thing I found to be most impressive is the translation of what we Christians now call The Lord’s Prayer … here’s today’s scripture lead-in to that, Luke 11:1-13:
… “He was praying in a certain place, and after he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.” 2 He said to them, “When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name.”
and scripture continues with what we now say as The Lord’s Prayer.
This is from Paul Serran’s THREAD:
Paul Serran
(49) The prayer was originally composed and spread in Aramaic, and went through Greek and Latin versions before ever getting to the west.
JESUS DID NOT SPEAK ENGLISH, OK?comment image
————————————————————————-
I LOVE this translation… the Cabal, including the Church has lied to us about so much. Read this translation carefully. Jesus speaks of sound, light and vibration – not once, but several times. This is what some contemporary theologians and current physicists speak of…
Ohh, how I wish these words were spoken today…
We often refer to what is happening as a Spiritual War …………….. I believe this is what is happening, but in a much broader sense. “The Awakening” is more than redpilling to the corruption and wanting disclosure… in my most humble opinion, it is about our awakening to a greater consciousness that truly, WWG1WGA……….. that we are ALL one.
(from Paul’s 49) tweet above: “Let Your will come true – in the universe (all that vibrates) just as on earth (that is material and dense).”
[End of personal musings……………… apologize if I have offended]

ForGodandCountry

You haven’t offended anyone. Great post!

phoenixrising37

Thank you FG&C ………….

Deplorable Patriot

Proof positive that we are held hostage by the translators – and in this case it includes the Evangelists who wrote in Hebrew and Greek. If the prayer was given in Aramaic, just about all of it is not quite right.

michaelh

I have several editions of the New English Translation (NET) handy, including a Diglot edition with the Nestle-Aland Greek text. When the translation for the NET was done they included detailed footnotes explaining the translation decisions that were made and why certain readings were preferred. Some of the common verses that everyone memorized read differently because they were trying to translate the original rather than preserve familiarity with the King James. For me, it helps b/c I personally knew several of the people who commissioned the translation or were translators themselves.
I’m not as concerned about the Greek and Aramaic differences – the writings were by native speakers of both languages and based on eye-witness accounts. The jump from Koine Greek to Modern (and contemporary American) English is a LOT more concerning for me. Greek has subtlety and nuance that make it challenging to get right. A lot of translations into English are pretty brute force b/c the structure is completely different.

Deplorable Patriot

Thanks, but as a Catholic, my authority is the Vulgate which is, itself, two generations from the Vulgate. And the translation does matter. The original intent needs to be intact.

michaelh

I’m not going to argue with you on that, just advising for anyone interested on one of the methods I use. And trying not to get into too much detail lest someone decides to go into King James onlyism 😉

Deplorable Patriot

Is that the one from last night?
It occurred to me as I was lying in the dark waking up, morning person that I am, that a frequent complaint regarding the Catholic clergy applies to using the Vatican to launder money. Clergy who went into the seminaries before going to college, or working, or doing anything in the real world are almost always financially clueless. The Italians are not as clueless as the others, in fact, they are usually quite with it even if their taste in things like…decor…is a little questionable. The others, not so much. I mean, we had an Italian archbishop that started an endowment and left us in the black by quite a bit, even with the Scandal, and his Irish successor ran right through most of the overage on stuff like imported vestments. And they’re hideous, too.
That sort of ignorance on the matters of finance and central banking would have been something to exploit, and use the moral stature of the Church to advantage and cover.
Bastards.

So perhaps we should pick a photo of the day and everyone around the world would only post the Thursday photo on Thursdays. Over and over again. While G00gle and FB would only store each identical photo once and give it a unique long code ID, they would have to store all the paths the same photo takes. Could it choke their many computers dealing with a zillion paths for one object? Might be interesting to see if there’s an effect if they irritate users too much.

Portland State U Punishes Professor For Proving Gender Studies Is A Joke
https://thefederalist.com/2019/08/30/portland-state-u-punishes-professor-proving-gender-studies-joke/
QUOTE:
“Portland State University is punishing Prof. Peter Boghossian for demonstrating that grievance studies are utter nonsense.
Boghossian and his colleagues submitted articles including an analysis of “canine rape culture” and an extract from “Mein Kampf” translated into the language of feminist theory. These were accepted by what counts as “major” journals in these pseudo-disciplines. In 2018, Boghossian and his colleagues made public these hoaxes, which elegantly and hilariously made the point that these fields’ “scholarship” cannot be distinguished from applesauce and horsefeathers.
Almost instantly Boghossian’s university brought him up on charges of “research misconduct.”
Boghossian was not subjected to this charade out of worry that his “research” posed a danger to innocent parties. Rather, he had embarrassed “grievance studies” professors, and they used the university’s bureaucratic apparatus to seek revenge.
His opponents wished to expel him from academia—and, at the very least, to make him endure an abrasive investigation. Persecuting Boghossian was also intended to intimidate into silence anyone else at Portland State University (and potentially anywhere else) who might consider criticizing the “grievance studies” complex.
Boghossian acted as an exemplary scholar by using a hoax to expose the intellectual hollowness of grievance-studies.
Sometimes satire is the best tool. We decry Portland State’s abuse of its misconduct regulations. And we call on all defenders of academic freedom to keep state legislators in Salem in mind of how Portland State is using public funds.”
(NOTE: the authors of this piece, Peter Wood and David Randall, are the president and the director of research of the National Association of Scholars.)

So much for the open exchange of ideas that universities are supposed to have.

wolfmoon1776

I think it’s all very true. I find it interesting that the article writer really doesn’t agree with the idea that Trump and God have anything to do with each other – she sounds like a “Stormy Bot” who bought Stormy’s tall tale – hook, line and sinker. She finds it “interesting”, “curious”, and even (probably) “mistaken” that Christians backed Trump.
To me it’s all a no brainer. We backed Trump for the same reason that Christian women will very frequently choose an ERRANT Christian husband over a more overtly and behaviorally moral atheist – because we tend to TRUST those who *ALSO* TRUST in God – even if they FAIL at times.
CO-BELIEF is more important that CO-BEHAVIOR – particularly when there is a huge lifestyle gulf anyway.
Trump may have had a weakness for beautiful women and an inability to stay married, BUT….
– he is fundamentally religious and trusting in God, but in a quiet way which is actually extremely in accord with even *minor* specifications by Christ (watch for this – I’m very impressed)
– he is actually the OPPOSITE of antisemitic, not only with his daughter being a Jewish convert, but trusting his Jewish son-in-law completely with the highest confidence
– he dated beautiful women of all kinds, without prejudice
– his inauguration speech – big parts of which were almost surely written BY HIM – makes more strong references to God than almost any major speech by a President that I can remember, except at functions like prayer breakfasts, etc.
No, Trump gives Christians and Jews every reason to trust him, because it is impossible to believe that Trump trusts God ANY LESS that we do. And as for behaviors, I may have beaten Trump on a few moral technicalities, but on big-ticket items of both the Old and New Testaments, SPELLED OUT VERY PRECISELY, Trump has me left behind at the starting gate on DOZENS of them.
Last sermon I heard – perfect example – and not the first time – I said – “YUP – Trump has actually done that. LITERALLY. Just like it says in the Bible. MODEL obedience. Many times. Me? Not so sure. Probably not. Maybe if I loosen the definitions just a bit….”
The FAKE NEWS MEDIA is a terrible judge of Biblical obedience. TERRIBLE.

Love it wolfmoon! Thank you! I will compose what I receive with what I was gonna share before I do! But I love you all because we’re of like mind! ❤️

Ok so I re-read and re-read… all I was gonna say was “I really hated Trump in the beginning but for some strange reason God told me he’s like all men in the Bible!

They don’t do well on Church teaching, either. Well, the people who actually go to Church, do, but try to convince someone who thinks excommunication dosesn’t have to be lifted before absolution can be given, and you get a panel discussion on Fox News which sits in judgment on internal matters. Watched it happen one night, and none of them understood it was a matter of transferring paperwork.

phoenixrising37

Ohhh, you’re so correct Dep Pat………….
The internet is full of ‘experts’ – you know, folks who have heard from their friend who heard from their friend that such and such a religion does such and such. I especially dislike those who NEVER read anything themselves, but take the words of another ignorant uninformed ‘expert’ to be gospel.

TheseTruths

The FAKE NEWS MEDIA is a terrible judge of Biblical obedience. TERRIBLE.
Their first problem is they don’t recognize God as the sovereign creator to whom we must answer. Then they make themselves minigods by deciding what is “Christian” when it suits their political leanings or human proclivities. (“Love” means having no borders or moral standards.) They do not accept the nature of God and want to make Him in their image — the opposite of how things really are.

Barb Meier

President Trump worked so tirelessly to win his campaign. I do believe that his election was in God’s hands and millions of us were praying for Trump. Hillary would have been the collapse of our republic. We still are praying for President Trump to stay safe. Hillary worked not at all. Instead, Hillary was a slacker relying on swamp scams, voter fraud, and pity, which failed.

The Fiancee and I went in to rejigger our cellphone plans……she’s been using bunches of data (while I use none), and she has an idle iPad which hangs off there. On my end, I’ve got a business plan (CPA), but live in a cellular desert where I have to walk a block in some direction to get a bar [my across-the-street neighbor, who was a midlevel exec for AT&T before he retired, used to complain about the same thing. He’d work from home for four hours, then nip-off the grocery store, and have a dozen emergency phone alerts hit him as soon as he was halfway down the block].
Anyway, as part of our rejiggering, we talked about bucket-list level vacation spots…..and we discussed a strategy that the Fiancee and I have used for years — the “subvacation”.
Simply stated, major travel is a pain-in-the-ass…..whereas minor travel can be, well, minor. If you tried to travel to exceptional destinations closely situated to a major travel destination, it would be a big deal……but if you just went to the major travel destination and “day-tripped” to the exceptional destination, you can have wonderful experiences and little additional bother — just rent a car and book a hotel.
I’ll drop a couple of examples here.
A couple of years ago, we wanted to do a trip to Vegas. Looking for opportunities close to Vegas, we found Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks in southern Utah — about 4 hours away. So we booked a seven-day Vegas trip with a 3-day subvacation for Utah. We thought we’d do a day of travel, a day in Bryce, and a day in Zion…..we ended-up blowing-off Zion. Bryce Canyon is drop-dead gorgeous, spectacular, amazing, wonderful, entrancing — we did both days there. Highly recommended. Zion might be the same, but we didn’t go. [Note to visitors — we regularly hiked trails at home with 600 ft altitude changes, so we thought doing a trail at Bryce with a 120 foot change would be trivial……Bryce’s rim is at 8400 feet and the elevation makes a 120 foot dip feel like you carried a sack of cement.] Even getting there is fantastic — we saw pronghorn just off the highway!comment image Incidentally, the Big Thunder Mountain ride at Disneylands everywhere is modeled after the scenery there.
My folks live in Salem, OR. You pretty much have to fly into Portland and rent a car to get there to begin with…….but once you’re there, you’re within striking distance of Silver Falls State Park, home of the Trail of Ten Falls [speaking of Disney scenery]. The Trail really does have ten falls — and you end up walking behind about half of them. This is within the Cascades, and the local geology has created fearsome wonders. While walking behind a waterfall, and reflecting on the lava shelf above that overhangs earlier terrain, you can actually look upward into the shadows of trees that were engulfed by the flow. Oregon has done a more than awesome job on the signage — it’s the only place I can think of, offhand, where trails are marked with maximum transverse slope — but that doesn’t mean there are no consequences. Good hiking shoes with major grip are recommended (we call ’em “glue shoes”).
We actually structured one trip where the most important bit was the subtrip. In 2008, we went to London…..and just happened to jet off to St. Petersburg, Russia for 10 days in the middle. Worked very well, particularly because Iceland had a volcano eruption in the middle of our trip and we knew that we could easily transit anywhere to get back to London.
It may not be for everyone, but we’ve had a lot of fun doing subvacations.

Fine…..comment imagecomment image
Oh, yeah — as normal as a supermarket parking lot……comment image

daughnworks247

Subvacations are a great idea. Completely agree. Travel should be fun, no pressure and make us happy instead of tense.
We use “Clock theory”. We’ll fly into a destination like Sicily, for instance. I modeled the island like a clock. Did a LOT of research at home before we left and took files in a small portfolio. Landed in Palermo, rented a car and took off west or counter-clockwise. As we traveled around the island, we had the advantage of knowing where certain things were which were cool. Other things, if we were not in the mood, we skipped.
So….., to visualize, Big T was driving down the autostrada and all of a sudden, I would scream out “Get off on this exit”, and he would veer off, wide-eyed and with white knuckles. “Turn left!!” I would scream, and down a country road we would go. Led us to a ancient Temple to Apollo, closed for a holiday. We hopped the fence and were the only ones there. The best of vacations!!
We had the freedom to linger in spots or move on depending on what was interesting to us at the time.
We can’t do the planned schedule/guided tour vacation.

On your cellular desert thing, I may live in a major metropolitan city, but right where I live is a gray zone, and it’s worse in the summer when the trees are in full leaf. Honest to God, in my neighborhood, people have to go out in the yard or on the porch or deck to talk on the phone. I’m serious about this. I tend to go to the park around the corner, but you can’t get a decent signal inside.
I feel your pain, especially since the land line is now gone.

Not a day goes by, I don’t REGRET letting my land line go…………. also lost the # I had for 30 years, somewhere in the transition.

The Summer between my Freshman & Sophmore year in college I planned a coast to coast trip. Mom had just had Cancer surgery & radiation so was NOT up to long car trips. Dad had FINALLY ‘earned’ three weeks vacation and could ‘borrow’ a week from the next year. I therefore planned an easy ~300 mile drive followed by a day of sightseeing.
We bought a pop-up tent trailer hooked it to the back of Dad’s V-8 Impala and off we went. Stopped in Chicago for a day with my boy friend’s family and then off to the Corn Palace in South Dakota then to the Badlands and on through the northern route, down to Vegas then to California to visit Mom’s cousin and returned by the southern route.
It was a really memorable trip and Yes we stopped at both Bryce Canyon & Zion.

Hong Kong:

Concerned Virginian

The Hong Kong police really have to choice but to do what they’re told — NOT from their chiefs in HK, NOT from the HK government — from BEIJING. It is Beijing that has been in control of HK since the British turnover. Any “local control” is actually an illusion created by Beijing for both the population of HK and for the rest of the world. The HK population realized that they were hoodwinked.
At some point, XI will have to decide whether to go “Tiananmen Square” or “Cultural Revolution” on the HK protesters and their families — or to buck the rest of the Communist Chinese Politburo which is apparently telling him to crush them all.
My gut feeling is that the HK protest movement will be crushed and the remaining activists (who will be labeled as “political enemies”) will go into hiding. The ones who can somehow escape, will get to the West.

Duchess, the other day we were talking about this movie and you asked me to let you know if it was on again. Well, believe it or not, it is on this morning.
This is the one I watched on television (Million Dollar Movie) when I was young. Although I loved it then, I might have a different opinion this time. That often happens.

Thanks, Dora – appreciate your attention – Jane did not have a good feeling about it – but, she would watch it again – I think I will pass – it might be this movie is back because of Dorian – the hurricane – dunno – but, I will pass – from what I have read about this movie – I am less than thrilled – Thanks, again!

Dora

I was wondering how far in advance they plan their movies because I also thought it might be playing today because of the hurricane. It seems too coincidental.
I’ll give the movie a try and let you know how I like it. 🙂

Agree – coincidental – Thanks, again! God Bless You!!!

Good Morning WQTH Troops and Prayer Warriors!
Daughter update:
Appetite much improved to the delight of the nurses. I’m still making green smoothies for extra nutrition. She’s napping a lot – and slept all night. The nurses and staff are very respectful of her sleep and don’t walk in turn on bright lights or talk loud when they have to give medications or take vital signs.
We are delighted with this critical care/recovery/rehab facility. It has everything – OR, ICU, lab, excellent nursing care and so far, very good food.

gil00

Good. Having a very active family makes a difference. When there is no one else people get sloppy.

Deplorable Patriot

The not waking her up is fantastic. One thing that my family always complains about regarding hospital stays is the chaos. The internist my parents go to expresses his frustration on it as well, as the hospital we use for most stuff has whole sections blocked off. Every patient could have a private room if the administration so chooses to actually serve the patients the way they should be treated.

gil00

Not to mention nursing care. Ive never liked the idea of publicly traded hospital investing, plus they just dont give nurses adequate staffing ratios. People have a lot of illness. The old models dont work.

LBGT are 3.8% of the US population
Hermaphrodites are 1.7% of the US population
Muslims ~1% of the US population
Illegals ~10% of the US population (@ 30 million minimum)
Hindu 0.7% of the US population (Never hear much from them do you?)
Buddhist 0.7% of the US population (Never hear much from them either)
Whites were 72% of the population in the 2010 United States Census. Non-Hispanic whites were 60.7%.
White men make up roughly 31 percent of the U.S. population.
SOoooo, since when do these small percentages of the population get to DICTATE to the majority HMMmmm???
William R. Russell was in Russia soon after the Bolsheviks seized power and spent considerable time there, working on Creel propaganda against the Germans, for the Bolsheviks, and later against the Bolsheviks. Russell described how he saw the communist tradecraft:

The way they worked their way to the seizure of power was as follows: Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed. Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union. Talk on soapboxes. Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue. Play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class. Try to break down the democratic processes from within. Accustom the people to picketing, strikes, mass meetings. Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible so that the people will lose confidence. Then in time of national peril, during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or of a general strike, walk into the capital and seize the power. A well-organized minority can work wonders.

BANKSTERS:
Congressional Record, February 9, 1917 — J.P. Morgan interests buy 25 of America’s leading newspapers and insert their own editors
We hear that there are only six big corporations that OWN the news. The paper The Network of Global Corporate Control by Stefania Vitali , James B. Glattfelder, and Stefano Battiston, shows the strings attached from the financial sector to the corporations. And by now, thanks to Trump everyone should be aware of the money strings on our politicians. One point the paper does not mentioned is mutual funds, trusts and pension plans.
If you invest in a mutual fund you are buying shares in the mutual fund (that you can not vote) and the Mutual Fund then uses YOUR money to buy stock shares which it owns and controls. This allows much more consolidation of control. For example Edward C Johnson 3rd, chairman of the Fidelity Group votes the stock in Monsanto owned by several pension and mutual funds like FMR LLC, FIDELITY MAGELLAN FUND INC, FIDELITY GROWTH COMPANY FUND, and Pyramis Global Advisors. The vanguard Group, aka John C. Bogle, owns another healthy chunk of Monsanto. In this way even more power is concentrated in the hands of a few. This explains the point made in the paper that the amount of power is greater than the amount of wealth can account for.
So facts like “85% of Monsanto is held by mutual funds and Institutional (financial) Holders” while true in that the money originated from pensioners and other little people does not tell the whole story. Yet it is trumpeted by those who want to confuse those trying to follow the money and power trails and misdirect us into thinking the stock is held and voted by pensioners – a complete and utter falsehood.
The article Financial Core of the Transnational Corporate Class lists the top companies AND the officers running these corporations.

…In this study, we decided to identify in detail the people on the boards of directors of the top ten asset management firms and the top ten most centralized corporations in the world. Because of overlaps, there is a total of thirteen firms, which collectively have 161 directors on their boards. We think that this group of 161 individuals represents the financial core of the world’s transnational capitalist class. They collectively manage $23.91 trillion in funds and operate in nearly every country in the world. They are the center of the financial capital that powers the global economic system. Western governments and international policy bodies work in the interests of this financial core to protect the free flow of capital investment anywhere in the world.

An earlier work by the same physicists.

World’s Stocks Controlled by Select Few
A pair of physicists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich did a physics-based analysis of the world economy as it looked in early 2007. Stefano Battiston and James Glattfelder extracted the information from the tangled yarn that links 24,877 stocks and 106,141 shareholding entities in 48 countries, revealing what they called the “backbone” of each country’s financial market. These backbones represented the owners of 80 percent of a country’s market capital, yet consisted of remarkably few shareholders.
“You start off with these huge national networks that are really big, quite dense,” Glattfelder said. “From that you’re able to … unveil the important structure in this original big network. You then realize most of the network isn’t at all important.”
The most pared-down backbones exist in Anglo-Saxon countries,.. these same countries are considered by economists to have the most widely-held stocks in the world.. But while each American company may link to many owners, Glattfelder and Battiston’s analysis found that the owners varied little from stock to stock, meaning that comparatively few hands are holding the reins of the entire market…..

This is what happened after the CB (FED) was established – PT is aware of who controls the markets – he is aware the ‘Old System’ must be taken down before they crash the economy – and blame it on him.
He has a plan to deal with this – and I trust ‘the plan’.

Gail Combs

It is either Trust President Trump, Trust ‘the Plan’ or kiss the USA as we know it good by. We can already see the escalation in attacks against the Constitution & Bill of Rights by the Commie left. They are ‘out of the closet now and unfortunately it is going to be ‘a fight to the death’

MOAR on MUTUAL FUNDS….
The key to understanding who actually controls US corporation shares and therefore who was voting to allow the the ripping apart of American companies via ‘Leveraged Buyouts’ during the 1980s & 1990s, is Mutual Funds and Pension funds. This is how a small group can wield a lot more power than their actual wealth would indicate. One of the points brought up in the The Network of Global Corporate Control paper.

This means that network control is much more unequally distributed than wealth. In particular, the top ranked actors hold a control ten times bigger than what could be expected based on their wealth….

Pension money of course is certainly not controlled by the individual.
Here is one of the common misconceptions about mutual funds. Investors don’t actually own the stock their money buys via mutual funds.

What are mutual funds?
A mutual fund is a company that pools money from many investors and invests the money in securities such as stocks, bonds, and short-term debt. The combined holdings of the mutual fund are known as its portfolio. Investors buy shares in mutual funds. Each share represents an investor’s part ownership in the fund and the income it generates.

If for example you look at Monsanto you will see that a large chunk of the shares are held by Institutional Holders (pensions) and Mutual Fund Holders. Although the money invested belongs to the average citizen the shares held are VOTED by someone else. For example when I checked several years ago divisions of Fidelity held a total shares: 39,127,443 or 7.15% The founding Johnson family controls most of Fidelity, and Edward C Johnson 3rd, chairman of the group vote those shares.
Power of Attorney to vote Fidelity Management & Research Company (FMR LLC0 shares in Monsanto

….Devonshire Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02109, a wholly- owned subsidiary of FMR LLC and an investment adviser registered under Section 203 of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, is the beneficial owner of 26,388,306 shares or 4.816% of the Common Stock outstanding of Monsanto Company (“the Company”) as a result of acting as investment adviser to various investment companies registered under Section 8 of the Investment Company Act of 1940.
Edward C. Johnson 3d and FMR LLC, through its control of Fidelity, and the funds each has sole ower to dispose of the 26,388,306 shares owned by the Funds.
Members of the family of Edward C. Johnson 3d, Chairman of FMR LLC, are the predominant owners, directly or through trusts, of Series B voting common shares of FMR LLC, representing 49% of the voting power of FMR LLC….

If you look at the history of mutual funds you can see a lot of money was invested via mutual funds rather than directly.

Gail Combs

The MUTUAL FUND thingy is the KEY that so many people miss.
Not only do the Elite use our TAX money against us they even use our SAVINGS!! 😱 😲 😖

duchess01

In the financial environment of today, this makes no sense – future proves past – PT is well-aware of who these people are – and what they have done to destroy world markets – and establish their CB system based on debt – each country has a central bank – and will be better off without it – Russia controls its CB – they are doing much better without it – Q is worldwide – and so is the ‘awakening’ – as each country demolishes its CB – it will develop a new currency backed by gold – and the power brokers of the CB will be no more because they will no longer control the financial system in that country – why is the head of the EU so infuriated about Brexit – because he knows as soon as the UK breaks away and does better without the EU – others will follow.

Unfortunately as a commenter (worked for a bank) on another blog said, they are NO LONGER just BANKERS. They used the wealth they stole from us to BUY control of the large international corporations.
For example Shell Oil (behind Global Warming & WWF) is controled by the Royal Dutch family, the British Royals, the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers. see my old comment
That is what the paper The network of global corporate control also tells us.

duchess01

Well…well…well – where there is a will – there is a way to get them – no one will escape scrutiny – neither will corporations – PT knows – he is on top of it – the new system will not accommodate them as the old one has – they still need their banks to launder money – and support their nefarious enterprises – remember the EO that will confiscate assets of those who are involved in human rights abuses – and they are!!!

LIVING IN THE CITY OF MAN
Michael Youssef, Ph.D.
Aug 3, 2019
No matter how many so-called advances we make as a society, spiritually we are no better off than those who have lived before us. As King Solomon once said, “There is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9). Human beings, apart from Christ, will inevitably choose to rebel against the ways of God. As a result, cultures that once were thriving will begin to deteriorate. The question we must answer as believers in Jesus Christ is How shall we live in such times?
How shall we live now as Western civilization, once built upon the Protestant Reformation, continues to turn its back on God? How shall we live now when our culture, which once espoused Christian principles, now publicly mocks and ridicules God’s ways? How shall we live now when even the church has joined in the anti-Biblical chorus?comment image
As believers, we live in the City of Man—but we are pilgrims in this world.
Read Hebrews 11. As believers, we live in the City of Man—but we are pilgrims in this world. We know our true home is the City of God, but we must learn to live here and now in the City of Man as Christ’s ambassadors to a dying world. Because we belong to Jesus and have the Holy Spirit, we can find the strength and wisdom to not just survive but thrive in the City of Man.
In the beginning, there was Eden, a beautiful garden. In the end, there will be an even more beautiful garden city called the New Jerusalem. For now, we live in the City of Man between these two gardens that bookend history. As we live here, we must keep our eyes fixed on another garden—Gethsemane. Here Jesus prayed, “Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. . . . I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them” (John 17:3, 13).
Only Christ’s victory can empower us to live triumphantly in the midst of the darkness of the City of Man. Because of the cross, we can walk with our heads held high no matter how bleak things may now look in this present city. After all, we belong to Jesus, and one day we are going to reign and rule with Him in the City of God.
Prayer: Lord, thank You not only for the promise of heaven, the City of God, but thank You for the full joy and freedom that I can have even now in the midst of the City of Man. I praise You. Help me to live a holy life that I might bring glory to Your name. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
“You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4).

We pledge to one another,
before the Lord above,
entire and whole and perfect,
this union of our love —
a love that will be patient,
a love that will be wise,
that will not twist with envy,
nor lose itself in lies;
a love that will not falter,
a love to hold us fast,
and bind us to each other
as long as life shall last.
We pray that God will guide us
through all the years to be,
our lives be shaped by courage,
hope and serenity.
Through joy and celebration,
through loneliness and pain,
may loyalty, compassion
and tenderness remain,
that those who share the blessing
of love that cannot cease
may walk the paths of gentleness
into the place of peace.

[Pat Frederick • January 31, 2019 at 05:59 • from OT but funny, sort of]
A man named Jack walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm.
He sat down next to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez at the bar and stared up at the TV as the 10:00 news came on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump.
Alexandria looked at Jack and said, “Do you think he’ll jump?”
Jack says, “You know what, I bet he will.”
Alexandria replied, “Well, I bet he won’t.”
Jack placed $30 on the bar and said, “You’re on!”
Just as she placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death.
She was very upset and handed her $30 to Jack, saying, “Fair’s fair… Here’s your money.”
Jack replied, “I can’t take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o’clock news and knew he would jump.”
Alexandria replies, “I did too; but I didn’t think he’d do it again.”
Jack took the money.
Alexandria went back to work at the US Congress.
Thus is the reasoning of socialists… they’ve seen societies that adopt socialism die repeatedly throughout history, but think that it won’t happen again

Russia/Putin is NOT the villian the MSM makes them out to be.
Remember those who have lived under Communism are generally the MOST ANTI-COMMUNIST.
If you checkout the paulcraigroberts.org (Search Putin) he has a lot of Putin’s speeches.
Putin Said That Liberalism Is A Failed Ideology That Has Undermined The West
Also:
https://consortiumnews.com/2018/02/06/understanding-russia-un-demonizing-putin/
and
Vladimir Putin Reveals: The West Is Controlled By Satanic Pedophiles

….President Putin has previous highlighted Satanism and pedophilia as one of the main challenges facing contemporary Russia. In a display of candor at the Valdai International Discussion Club, Putin described the “normalization of pedophilia” as a clear sign of “moral degradation creeping through Europe and the West”. Putin observed that “supporters of an extreme, Western-stylee liberalism” were overlooking the fact that military-political problems and general social conditions are worsening, with much of the world forgetting the value of basic human decency. Focusing on the challenges faced by Russia in an international context on both foreign policy and moral flavor, Putin alluded to Satanism which he has known for a long time to be responsible for rotting the fabric of America at the core:

.”We see many of the Euro-Atlantic countries are actually rejecting their roots, including the Christian values that constitute the basis of Western civilization. They are denying moral principles and all traditional identities: national, cultural, religious and even sexual. They are implementing policies that equate large families with same-sex partnerships, belief in God with the belief in Satan.”​

I’ve read some if his speeches and that’s pretty much how I see Putin and would prefer to be allied with Russia. The article says it’s too late because Russia has committed to China and there’s an impending doom to western economies

Gail Combs

drillerelite,
I think that depends on President Trump. Russia/Putin can certainly UNcommit to China if it is in the country of Russia’s best interests.
Again Historically Russia and China have had a very uneasy relationship.
I think this is one of the reasons the MSM has run with the Russian Collusion story. THAT story is in the best interests of CHINA and THE CLINTONS since Billyboy DID take $$$ from China and sold out the USA.

Look at Russian History.
The European bankers agitate and get the US Civil War going. France and England are waiting in the wings to RETAKE THEIR AMERICAN COLONIES once the US forces have exhausted themselves fighting each other (China is doing the same right now.)
The TSAR of RUSSIA steps in and tells France and England that if they attack the USA, HE will attack THEM from the rear. This article is about all that is left on the internet on the topic: U.S. Civil War: The US-Russian Alliance that Saved the Union, by Webster G. Tarpley
The EUROPEAN BANKSTERS come to the USA and set-up a Central Bank. THEN they use AMERICAN WEALTH to finance the Bolshevik Revolution. The Communist WIPE OUT THE ENTIRE ROYAL FAMILY. (Can you say retaliation with a nasty twist)
The Elite set-up two ‘Experiments’ The goal is COMPLETE CONTROL of the Serfs.
#1. Communist Model in the Soviet Union. (It failed and they pulled the plug.)
#2. European Union Model with an UNELECTED bureaucracy in charge and a puppet parliment making people THINK it is a democracy.

Driller, Tyler Durdin just posts most of the articles at Zero Hedge. He isn’t usually the author. Look down further and you’ll see: “Authored by Jon Hellevig via The Saker blog,” That blog seems to be a Russian propaganda site for the most part. I read that article and laughed when he insinuated that POTUS is getting orders from the NWO people. If you read the comments, most people are not biting.

Ah, thanks so much for clearing that up! I should have caught that ☺️, read like a total propaganda piece. I read some of the comments, a lot of them are pretty good

Some one help me out if I’m wrong, but Tyler Durden is actually multiple people with the intent that some of them are pro and some anti on the subjects they cover.
Modeled after this?
“The Narrator, also known as Tyler Durden, is a fictional character appearing as both the central protagonist and antagonist of the 1996 Chuck Palahniuk novel Fight Club, its 1999 film adaptation of the same name, and the comic book Fight Club 2.Wikipedia
First appearance:
Pursuit of Happiness (1995)”
According to a professional dog petter writing into Quora answering this question:
“Who is Tyler Durden of the website ZeroHedge.com? – Quora
https://www.quora.com/Who-is-Tyler-Durden-of-the-website-ZeroHedge.com
One “Tyler Durden” claimed that there were 4 editors, but another one claimed there were 40. These pseudonyms help the company keep anonymity, especially because of the backlash they might receive on controversial issues. The only known writer is Daniel Ivandjiiski, who conducts interviews on behalf of the company.”
My guess is 4 editors and up to 40 guest writers. Which accounts for some of my distaste and likely yours on some of the writings there, but certainly not all.

I believe more than 1/2 of Americans see these shootings as FF …………….. yes, people are killed, but they suspect there is more, that we are being given a “narrative” – not the truth.
Americans are truly becoming more informed.

Gail Combs

Because the Commie Left is so noisy we forget they are a MINORITY. Once people realize the news is LYING to them and the government has been LYING for years, the possibility of False Flags to ‘shape narratives’ suddenly becomes a possibility in many people’s minds once they are introduced to the concept.
I think this is why the Commie Left is becoming so desperate and outragious. No noe goes back to sleep once they are ‘woke’

December 2009 Rasmussen Reports: Tea Party Tops GOP on Three-Way Generic Ballot

“Suppose the Tea Party organized itself as a political party. When thinking about the next election for Congress, would you vote for the Republican candidate from your district, the Democratic candidate from your district or the Tea Party candidate from your district?
Democratic — 36%
Tea Party — 23%
Republican — 18%
Not sure — 22% “ —
http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/december_2009/tea_party_tops_gop_on_three_way_generic_ballot

Tea Party & Republican = 23% + 18% = 41% with another 22% as fence sitters. (This is why the polls are pure BULL SHIT.)
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
People may watch the news but they do not believe ESPECIALLY if they are Republicans!
Three different polls over the last few years show Americans no longer believe the crap the Yellow Stream Media tries to feed them… Unless they are already diehard liberals.
Apr, 2016 Only 6% of Americans trust the media

[….]A survey of more than 2,000 adults released on Sunday showed that trust in the media has dipped to dramatically low levels. About 52 percent of respondents said they have “some confidence” in the press, while 41 percent said they have “hardly any confidence.”
Over the last two decades, research shows the public has grown increasingly skeptical of the news industry,” the report from the American Press Institute reads. “The study reaffirms that consumers do value broad concepts of trust like fairness, balance, accuracy, and completeness. At least two-thirds of Americans cite each of these four general principles as very important to them.” […]

And more recently:
60% of Americans believe MSM reports fake news

[…]The Monmouth University poll, published Wednesday, found that Republicans (79 percent) were most likely to say that major news outlets transmit fake news stories, compared to 66 percent of Independents and 43 percent of Democrats.
The survey found that even more people distrust online news websites, with a whopping 80 percent believing such outlets report fake news regularly or occasionally…
The three groups of respondents were more equally aligned on the topic of whether online news outlets report fake news deliberately, with Republicans and Independents tied at 57 percent. Democrats weren’t far behind, at 52 percent.[…]

Hill article: Poll: Majority says mainstream media publishes fake news

[…]Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the mainstream press is full of fake news, a sentiment that is held by a majority of voters across the ideological spectrum.
According to data from the latest Harvard-Harris poll, which was provided exclusively to The Hill, 65 percent of voters believe there is a lot of fake news in the mainstream media.
That number includes 80 percent of Republicans, 60 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats. Eighty-four percent of voters said it is hard to know what news to believe online.[…]”

And a January 2018 politico article.

[…]“The big takeaway is that Trump’s media marketing campaign is working, not just on his core, but on Republicans in general,” she said.
Other key findings of the survey: Even as 84 percent say the media play a “critical” or “very important” role in our democracy, 43 percent of respondents had a very or somewhat unfavorable view of the press, with 33 percent favorable and 23 percent neutral. Just 15 percent of Republicans had a favorable view, with 68 percent unfavorable. Democrats replied 54 percent favorable, 18 percent unfavorable.
Americans, Gill said, “see the media as a key and important part of our democracy but don’t see it as fulfilling that role.” […]

was just recently talking about this with my granddaughter………………….
don’t believe the Lamestream Media………………….. these sort of kind gestures are happening all around us. Racism? That’s a hoax. Of course racists exist, but they’re very few in number these days. The Cabal would like you to think it’s prevalent because that divides us…………….

I do birthday parties. Generally The blacks have at least a few Whites & Latinos, the Whites have Blacks & Latinos, the asians have Whites & Blacks & Latinos….
I see biracial couples all the time…. What I do not see is RACISM even among the ‘white racists’ They may be against biracial marriages, but they have friends of all races…. AND I am in NC I saw a lot more racism in Boston MA than I have seen since I moved south.

Deplorable Patriot

” I saw a lot more racism in Boston MA than I have seen since I moved south.”
I will totally believe this. My hometown is still polarized, although that’s receding. There are still pockets in what we call midcounty where single streets are black, and remain that way because of the way they do real estate, but go to the grocery store, and we’re all the same.
My hairdresser is a six foot black guy who has two daughters and lost his wife a few years back. She was white. His mother is a hoot. She tried to talk me into red sparkly nail polish one time. Her son, the hair guy, is about my age, and we talk music all the time.

Longer than a movie is the six-part FX television series, The Americans (2013-2018), on the same subject. It takes place in Washington DC during the Reagan era. Compelling viewing. It won a number of awards.
It is amazing how well the Russians speak English — with an American accent — and are the masters of disguise.

I actually agree with this. There’s less of a chance of the next 72 hours being spent dissecting social media, talking to family, etc., in order to pop psycho-analyze the man in the legacy media.

Nolte: Debunking the Joke Police Attacks on Dave Chappelle
https://www.breitbart.com/entertainment/2019/08/31/nolte-debunking-the-joke-police-attacks-on-dave-chappelle/
QUOTE:
“(In the immediate wake of his new NetFlix special) The Joke Police are looking to strip Dave Chappelle of his speech rights, which once again proves we are coming to a decision point in this country. That’s what this whole godforsaken Woke Crusade boils down to — a choice, and the choice is this: Are we going to allow ourselves to become second class citizens in our own country? Are we going to allow far-left activists and their allies in the media, Silicon Valley, and Hollywood to bully us into creating a two-tiered class system?
As a country we have to decide if we’re going to cave to the Woke Gestapo, allow them to restrict our speech, and to create an America where some people can be criticized and satirized, and others cannot.”

phoenixrising37

Well, are we?
Where’s the pushback ?
Where’s the support for those speaking out and up ? Dave Chappelle…………… have you expressed appreciation to him? Do we even comprehend what it takes for a black American to ‘pushback’ like he is doing. Many others could use some affirmation I am sure.
