Dear KAG: 20190925 Open Thread

Morning, folks. It’s welcome to Autumn Day. Yes, three months ’til Christmas. Have you taken down the lights from last year? No? Well, guess what, you’re ahead of the game.

For now.

So, in looking around, nothing really special happened on September 25, and if you are seeing this block of text, nothing much is going on in politics, either. (Just kidding since there’s one bombshell after another coming to light.) So, today is a generic, normal, run of the mill hump day open thread.

The obligatory mood music for the day.

Awfully civil for a cat fight.

Okay, so here’s the deal. This is the open thread. This is where we all come to get the news that other Q tree inhabitants think is worth knowing and sharing. Please, post links to any “news” stories quoted, and ask for help if you are stumped as to how to do that. We’re a friendly lot. Someone will be with you shortly, and there is no reason to have to press one for English.

Free speech, and the open exchange and hashing out of ideas is not only allowed, but encouraged. If we all don’t use it, we’re going to lose it. A little incivility goes a long way, though.

And now, for a real cat fight.

Please try not to kick Joan Collins in the seat, such actions could get us 8chaned.

And now for some house keeping:

There are a few rules here in the branches of the Q Tree. Our host, Wolfm00n, outlined them in a post on New Years Day. Please, review these rules from time to time, like when you turn the sound off on the television because Shepard Smith’s show just started.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

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

Steve suggests – to be accurate – no shooting at the nuclear weapons, but to be safe about it, don’t event point firearms toward them. I, Deplorable Patriot, bossy chick that I am, request no teasing the animals, pets and wildlife alike.

Teasing and trolling the lefties and their bastions, on the other hand is a moral imperative.

__________________________________________________

In the eternal fight against the forces of evil and darkness, unceasing prayer is always needed.

From the Gospel According to St. Luke 8:16-18

Jesus said to the crowd:
“No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel
or sets it under a bed;
rather, he places it on a lampstand
so that those who enter may see the light.
For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible,
and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.
Take care, then, how you hear.
To anyone who has, more will be given,
and from the one who has not,
even what he seems to have will be taken away.”

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

And now, on to the day’s news…..

Published this piece on Crowdstrike on April 6, 2017. The entire fake Russian Hoax STARTED with CrowdStrike. They released a report on false assumptions in Dec of 2016. By May, they were forced to retract the basic premise of their report, BUT by then, the FBI/CIA/DNI had used their report to underpin the Obama joint assessment report on Russian meddling and the “17 Intel Agencies” lie was born. Yes, it was all a lie.
Rudy Giuliani is flushing out the story of Obama/Hillary/DNC corruption in the Ukraine, finally, as part of a good defense of his client, the President of the USA. Hey, if your client is falsely accused of murder, sometimes you have to figure out who the real murderer is. And we all know, Mueller’s SC did not focus on the real corruption of the Obama Admin.
From April of 2017:
RE: Russian Hacking
Remember, CrowdStrike, a cyber firm, are the only ones with access to the DNC servers and the only one with first hand knowledge into Podesta Hacking.
The DNC refused FBI requests to examine their servers on 5 separate occasions.
The DNC servers were never subpoenaed by the FBI.
Why?
The DNC and MSM tell us daily Russian intrusion into our election is the most important threat to our democracy and we MUST get to the bottom of their “Act of War” and possible collusion with Team Trump.
The “17 intel agencies” who claim Russia intruded in our election process are basing their reports on the CrowdStrike report.
And…. CrowdStrike’s report/basis for conclusions, has fallen apart.
Crowdstrike’s conclusion is based on two primary points.
1. Malware found on Podesta’s computer was said to have a Russian signature, often used by well known Russian hackers. We quickly learned 1/3 of American computers contain the same common threads.
They said it was “typed” in Russian, but we learned Russian keyboards are available in Brooklyn for $14 and Apple/Android can easily switch to Russian language.
2. Complicated theory involving Ukrainian Howitzers, a London Think Tank (IISS – who later debunked Crowdstrike’s theory and told the world Crowdstrike could have easily corrected their thesis had they only called to confirm), and a hacker named Cozy Bear.
CrowdStrike claimed the “targeting app” for Ukrainian D30 Howitzers was hacked by Cozy Bear and the signature was the same for the DNC.
CrowdStrike claimed the hacking of the howitzer app, during the Crimea incursion, accounted for an 80% loss in these key weapons.
Crowdstrike pointed to a think tank in London, IISS, which counts the weapons available to various armies all over the world and used these numbers for confirmation of CrowdStrike’s “theory”.
But……..
CrowdStrike never called the London Think Tank for confirmation and IISS (the think tank) adjusted it’s numbers. Only 15% of Ukrainian howitzers were lost during the Crimean War.
CrowdStrike never called the Ukrainian General to talk about their howitzers and THAT General says CrowdStrike is crazy in their theories.
In fact, CrowdStrike had to retract portions (the important part about Ukrainian howitzers during the Crimea incursion) of their statements/conclusions about the DNC/Podesta hacking.
But YOU never heard about it did you?????
A recent statement by CrowdStrike’s spox claims their conclusions are still valid……. because they are backed up by conclusions from the 17 intel agencies………….. which are based on CrowdStrike’s ORIGINAL and now FALSE report.
See what they did there?
How about that one?
And the MSM thinks the Trump supporters are stupid……
It’s laughable.
It’s all a con.
It looks like finally, the UK papers are beginning to sniff out the real story.
Oh, BTW, the co-founder of CrowdStrike is a fellow at The Atlantic Council, rabid anti-Russia stance…………, and so is Dr. Evelyn Farkas.

Deplorable Patriot

Thanks for the reminders. It’s great to have a well of information to round out current events.

phoenixrising37

Hi there Lady,
Hope you’re getting some resolution to the plumbing probs…………
Super POST………… how you find time, I’ll never know. Take care of yourself… this is going to be long and Biblical… God bless you.

🦋🦋bflyjesusgrl🦋🦋

Miss Daughn, question. Crowdstrike is related to DNC server which we think Ukraine may have according to released transcript, correct? I’ve also been seeing Hillary and 33k emails comments regarding POTUS today and others are also talking about her. Do you know, Is he/they mixed up or does he/they think Ukraine has her emails(server) too?

Steve the spam calls are a pain. I let them go into the answering machine. My kids can call me on the cell or texted me.
Haha my husband calls them back or answers the phone and does not hang up.
Yes something needs to be done because many callers are scams.

Sooo, Catherine Herridge just reported that the BS came from People in the White House. More like a leak. They didn’t want to go to the media directly, so they told the WB who went to the IG.

Is that adequate or is more requested?

ForGodandCountry

May it please the QTree court….
I submit that PDJT and the white hats submitted details of POTUS’ call with PoU to a known IC ideologue expecting said person to file a whistle-blower complaint re: that conversation.
Lo and behold, said “whistleblower” did just that, and democrats rams with it like a dog with a fresh bone. “Ha!”, they squealed. “We’ve got him now!”
Instead….
What has been introduced back into the public narrative is democrat coercion (Biden withholding funds in order to get a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating his son fired, as well as the word “Crowdstrike”….which brings up Hillary’s missing emails as well as the BS which began the entire “Muh Russia” hoax.
It’s so f’n brilliant it’s pure genius!!comment image

Did they bring forth Articles of Impeachment? Were these voted on?

BB explains what happened:
‘The Battle Lines Are Drawn’: 231 House Democrats Vote to Proceed with Impeachment of Donald Trump
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/09/25/the-battle-lines-are-drawn-231-house-democrats-vote-to-proceed-with-impeachment-of-donald-trump/
The points are this:
So: McCarthy, the House Minority Leader, drafted a resolution formally condemning the way in which Pelosi launched the impeachment inquiry.
Then: Since Democrats are in the majority, they control what votes happen on the floor. But as the GOP leader in the House of Representatives, even though he is in the minority, McCarthy has the ability–he is the only Republican with the ability–to force a vote on a privileged resolution almost immediately. So McCarthy did just that–he introduced the resolution as privileged and forced the full House of Representatives to vote on it on Wednesday evening:
In other words, in plain English, the Democrats, by shooting down McCarthy’s resolution, have now formally all gone on the record in support of Pelosi’s impeachment inquiry–and the Republicans have now all gone on the record against it. Even more plainly, this was the vote that formally opened impeachment proceedings. They are all on the record now.
What’s more, in perhaps good news for Trump, he lost zero Republicans. The GOP is unified behind its president. Impeachment being partisan is an optics win for Trump, as it feeds his narrative that the Democrats are power-hungry and cannot beat him at the ballot box, so they are using extraordinary measures to attempt to seize the office by force.
“The Democrats can’t hide anymore,” a second senior GOP aide told Breitbart News. “Every last one of them now has the blood of this failed coup all over their hands. And America can see it.”

speakn2pabst

The Breitbart description doesn’t seem to be accurate.
McCarthy having a vote on a “resolution formally condemning the way in which Pelosi launched the impeachment inquiry” isn’t the same as “more plainly, this was the vote that formally opened impeachment proceedings.”
It wasn’t a specific Impeachment Proceeding vote so don’t agree with that assessment. Also how bad would it be if McCarthy triggered the Impeachment Proceedings. Unless the direct Impeachment Proceeding vote occurs were not in an Impeachment Proceeding.
I am fine with getting the house members on record but this discussed vote was still symbolic or maybe you’d call it a straw poll.

phoenixrising37

Straw vote 😉
Impeachment can only begin with VOTE ON ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT.
ANYTHING ELSE IS BLUSTER.

mollypitcher5

One thing that occurred to me is that after all the news of the last couple of days Biden has the same tunnel vision that Killary has . He entered the race with massive potentially lethal baggage so freakin certain that he could slide under the scrutiny. The lust for power must be as addictive as any drug.
What rational, wealthy person would jeopardize his legacy (such as it is) and his already screwed up son’s life? Did he really believe that the swamp still had that much mojo? It’s crippled, limping and DJT with his legion of citizen researchers exposing the corruption at every turn.
He’s a fool and the Dems are too.

mollypitcher5

Glad to see some people finally doing something
