20191018: Dear KAG Open Thread

Welcome to the open thread! Wild times in Trumpland during Rocktober! At least we’re on that roller coaster together. We were SUPPOSED to get the OIG report today, but we have a little delay. No problem, President Trump is keeping us busy.

We never imagined he would be THIS GOOD, did we? He’s the President who makes grown men snicker from the payback he delivers. He’s the Boss. He’s in their head. They’re beaten. They’re confounded and don’t know what to do. It means….. we’re WINNING!! No pansies allowed, we have a President who fights back. He’s the President we prayed for, and he speaks for us.

#NervousNancy was the ONLY executive female in the room, and she rose to her feet and pointed her finger. HUGE loss. Horrible optics. She lost her composure, relapsed to a whiny and bitter woman. She stormed out of the room, for the SECOND time. She also left the room during Immigration discussions, remember? She’s no leader and she’s giving women a bad name….because Trump moved 28 soldiers in Syria?

She’s lost control of her caucus. The Squad endorsed Bernie, the Independent, which kills DCCC and DNC fundraising….. but they’re the radicals Nancy decided to sleep with… and she woke up with fleas. President Trump has turned over Nancy’s nest, and our honey badger doesn’t give a $hit.

We’re in the Q Tree. You can say what you want, comment on what other people said, and so on. Free Speech is practiced here. ENJOY IT. Use it or lose it.

Keep it SOMEWHAT civil. Our rules began with the civility of the Old Treehouse, later to become the Wolverinian Empire, and one might say that we have RESTORED THE OLD REPUBLIC – the early high-interaction model of the Treehouse – except of course that Q discussion is not only allowed but encouraged, and speech is considerably freer in other ways. Please feel free to argue and disagree with the board owner, as nicely as possible.

Please also consider the Important Guidelines, outlined here in the January 1st open thread. Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven.

Yes, we are in perilous times. The Dems are trying to impeach our President for political reasons. We’re in an internal civil war, and we have a wartime President. We can’t let the swamp win. It’s time for the people to make a comeback.

Little bit of mood music from John Lee Hooker.

When I met Big T, I was going through a John Lee Hooker phase, mandatory education for anyone living in the American south. He used to look at me kind of funny when I listened to this song, but “Bad, Like Jesse James” became his “going to trial court” theme song. Instant swagger. Yet there is another song, perfect for today, in honor of Nancy Pelosi called, “Mean, Mean Woman”

SPEAK THE FIVE WORDS BOLDLY TO OUR PRESIDENT! “I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!“ He needs out constant prayers.

We leave you with the landmark video of the week!

I saw that earlier. I may actually have to learn how to navigate it.

Covadonga

So is it official that 8chan.net is the new site?
Is Q expected to start dropping crumbs there?
Was 8kun.net a ruse to distract the baddies with fake red meat? Or was it Plan A, and Codemonkey was forced by circumstances to go with Plan B?
Before I read your comment, I was getting really scared about 8kun.
I saw on a site (website-down.com) that uses servers on 3 continents to test other sites’ availability, that it was down last night.
Then, this morning, it was showing ‘forbidden’ instead of just ‘down’.
Then I saw there that someone way ahead of me whohad tested 8chan.net, and it was up. So I wondered “what was its provenance?”
If intel and mil veterans who are disclosing newly declassified data to the public, in coordination with the White House, could not get past the Deep State and its Big Tech preneurs and cyberthugs, what would that say about the status of our First Amendment protections?
I know I ask a lot of questions. Q being off line so long makes me feel stupid, as well as queasy. Trying to get smarter.

IMHO…the opioids/makers aren’t the problem same as gun makers aren’t the problem. The epidemic was caused by pill mills and street dealing and then of course the flooding of counterfeit and synthetics from China.

ozzytrumpster

It’s not OxyContin that’s the problem. It’s people getting hooked on painkillers.(rarely OxyContin because it’s a brand name) and then turning to illegal drugs most of which are made in/facilitated by China. They are conducting their own opium war against the west

Deplorable Patriot

I thought one of the issues was one class of painkillers being phased out or made illegal or something by Obamacare.

prognosticatasaurusrex

Remember Tort reform? We used to have that on the platform. Also remember Trump trying to get Pharmaceutical companies to list their pricing, blocked by a dem fed judge…so far.
Opioids were part of the insidious globalist plan. Get people hooked on legal but EXPENSIVE drugs for “pain management” Then when they are hooked, and cannot afford the legal drugs, they turn to the cheaper, but DEADLY street varieties. Costing us a generation of young people. SICK!

daughn, sounds to me like the perfect camelnose-under-the-tent for going after firearms manufacturers.

piper567

daughn, it seems to me that so many of marxist policies not only cheapen personal responsibility but seek to evade it.
From the ridiculous push for gun control to aggressive abortion, the Dems seem to seek ANY solution to ills apart from accepting the role of personal responsibility or choice.

Deplorable Patriot

And what makes it worse is they shop for the judge panels that will yield the highest rewards. St. Clair County, Illinois, was and may still be a big class action location. The case against Johnson & Johnson over talcum powder was here, on this side of the river – and has been thrown out on appeal, not on the merits of the case, but that the St. Louis court had to right to issue judgement. (Yes, there is still asbestos in baby powder, and no, ladies, it is not safe to sprinkle it in your intimate garments.)
It has to do with not just the judges, but the sort of jury pools that can be put together. There’s a reason the world headquarters of some HUGE defense firms are here.

Deplorable Patriot

NO RIGHT TO ISSUE JUDGEMENT.
ARGH!
All that sunshine outside is going to my head.

I saw the narrative first thing this morning, and KNEW it was an outlier. The MSM, even Fox, were showing two small, what looked like mortar strikes, not even a large scale building attack, mostly like a positional attack. They were ALL saying the cease fire broke, when the REALITY was a SMALL skirmish by rogue elements on BOTH sides, that was QUICKLY halted. These people make me more than sick, they make me ANGRY. Trump ABSOLUTELY need to ONE, reinstate the media propaganda ban, and TWO, hold those that VIOLATE that ban, including, directors, producers, writers, and anchors of MSM “news” programs ACCOUNTABLE. This is BEYOND political, this is DANGEROUS. WW3 could be started by one of these “narratives” going badly. Remember, the other countries in this world SEE and HEAR or MSM, they don’t always KNOW that these narratives are complete political BULLSHIT. What happens if one of these countries take something LITERALLY.

piper567

prognosticat, the Washington Examiner is reporting this morning that “the trump Campaign” is suing cnn for pro-impeachment bias…demanding “substantial payment”.
a start?

prognosticatasaurusrex

Yes, but MORE importantly, this gets just what CNN was doing and saying into the public sphere. They will HAVE to respond, and even IF they settle to avoid a trial, the “normies” that pretend to still after 3 years, be in the dark, will still get to SEE and hear CNN’s treachery.
Now, I want everyone to ponder something. Ready?
Why would CNN, a FOR profit company, AND their share holders, ALLOW this to happen, KNOWING that it HAD TO, HAS, and WILL, hurt their bottom line.
Now, FURTHER, CNN is in a competative business. Why would their competitors, seeing a vulnerability, NOT take advantage of, highlight, and exploit that weakness to DAMAGE CNN’s viability, profitability, market share, taking it for THEMSELVES?
No one, not CBS, not MSNBC, ABC, NBC, or even Bloomberg, BBC Americas, Al Jazeera America do it to EXPAND their market and profitability. ONLY Fox and OANN do it, and they are BANKING.
How come the others DON’T, ALL of them. Not ONE? In ANY other business, do you not try to exploit your competitors weakness, and get THEIR market? Why yes, yes they do.
There is ONLY one answer. They are ALL in on it. they ALL do the EXACT same thing, using the EXACT same methods. They won’t attack CNN, because in doing so, they EXPOSE themselves, and the GAME.
Someone (Trump? Rush? Hannity?) needs to EXPLAIN that reality to we the people. We you approach it as what it IS, a business, their tactics and methodology do NOT make snse, except in ONE way.

scott467

This is also why they will never ‘go bankrupt’, no matter how low viewership goes, or how low readership (e.g., NYT) goes.
Whatever money they make legitimately is supplemented by covert income streams, which are clearly large enough to keep these enterprises going indefinitely.
They are a critical function, the entire media/propaganda/narrative control arm of the global organized crime syndicate.
They are not going to give that up, no matter how much money is lost on the ‘official’ books.

prognosticatasaurusrex

There is a “rumor” that they are funded by the C I A. It would make sense. But then they were just purchased by AT&T. NO WAY those shareholders can like the loses. Unless…

scott467

In other words, most of the MSM is effectively ‘subsidized’ with covert income streams, giving them an unfair advantage over legitimate businesses, no different than foreign countries subsidizing their industry and then dumping product on American shores.

prognosticatasaurusrex

State run media. Stalin would have been SO proud,

Covadonga

‘hold those that VIOLATE that ban, including, directors, producers, writers, and anchors of MSM “news” programs ACCOUNTABLE.’
Government holding them accountable is the problem.
Who needs to be held accountable is the CIA Mockingbird guys who are telling them what to say, now.
Apparently Trump going after rogue CIA guys is a complicated business, unfortunately. It’s one of the big things we’re waiting on.

Deplorable Patriot

From the sketchy clues that keep surfacing, it sounds like they want to wipe out all the labs and underground facilities before going public. That’s just a guess, but given that announcements aren’t made until arrests are, they want to be sure no one escapes.

scott467

They need to preserve evidence, not blow it up.
They need to SHOW the People exactly what has been going on, and where, and how, and by whom.
Destroying the evidence throws it all back into the ‘conspiracy theory’ narrative, because you can’t prove it if the evidence is destroyed.

“MSM is freaking out over Trump line of “secured the oil” ”
________________
And if WE had a voice, WE could SHOUT THEM DOWN properly.
This has been the stupidity from the beginning.
If there was any compelling reason to go to war in the Middle East in the first place, then we SURE better get paid for it.
It is a fundamental rule of War that to the victor goes the spoils.
It costs a crapload of money to go to war, and you have to pay that cost upfront.
If you WIN, then at a bare minimum, you SURE better recover the cost of doing it.
You cannot violate the fundamental rules of war and succeed, but we violated that fundamental rule. We went to war using our own treasure, depleted our own treasure, defeated the enemy, and then didn’t even take enough treasure from the defeated enemy to compensate for our expenditure, not to mention compensation for the wounded and the families of the dead, much less the rightful spoils of war due the victor.
Any reporter or talking head who so much as sniffs in condescension at the thought of ‘securing’ or TAKING oil should have 50 people surround him and shout him down so hard he crawls away in fear for his life.

Fantastic! I love reading these scorching letters. And this one is immediate action taken as a result of evidence gained from Project Veritas.
It reveals that CNN is in violation of journalistic ethical standards as well as the Lanham Act, and it says they intend to seek “compensatory damages, treble damages, punitive damages, injunctive relief, reimbursement of legal costs,” etc., as permitted by law. Yes‼️⚠️

Chickens will eat almost any insect. They love to eat the larvae too. This YouTube channel belongs to a guy who calls himself The Hornet King. He specializes in removing wasp, bees, hornets, etc nests. Then he brings the nest material home for his chickens to pick over. Go to the 26:15 minute mark for the chickens.

I truly think this is a PLOY by Hillary. She KNOWS what is coming. She KNOWS that she cannot STOP it. She KNOWS that she is complicit. She KNOWS that her actions will result in seeing the business side of an 8′ rope over a sudden 6′ drop. She KNOWS she can’t escape. She KNOWS she will NOT get ANY sympathy, not even if she has a “medical” relapse. Therefore, she is going to “pretend” to go completely batshit crazy, totally delusional, not just with Trump, it will get WORSE, and more frequent. She THINKS that the insanity defense will save her. Sorry Hills, too late. Time to pay the check!

Admiral McRaven in NYT: Remove Trump from Office ‘The Sooner, the Better’
Retired Admiral William McRaven has published an op-ed in Friday’s New York Times titled, “Our Republic Is Under Attack From the President,” urging that Trump be removed from office — “the sooner, the better.”
https://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2019/10/17/admiral-mcraven-in-nyt-remove-trump-from-office-the-sooner-the-better/

Wasn’t McRaven, one of Obama’s “affirmative action” Generals. IE Obama promoted him to 3 star when he was “stuck” in other administrations? Does he not go back to the Gen Flynn firing, and the purge of senior officers from major on up that did NOT agree with Obama’s policies,

CT, Not to be crass or unsympathetic;
I thought long and hard about responding this way…….but here goes.
Suck it up buttercup, be a fricking man and stop feeling sorry for yourself. Deal with it. There are many others that are far worse off than you and they are doing and handling life just fine. I am one not to broadcast my issues, but I do so not to elicit sympathy but rather encouragement.
Hell, you’re a youngster and have a good life ahead of you. I’ll be 65 on Monday (yep that’s right Medicare; complicated business) the fvcking govt really knows how to screw shit up.
Let me tell you about health issues; I’ve been dealing with rheumatoid arthritis since I was 22yo (43 years). I have a fused right wrist, artificial knuckles-right hand; tendon fusion in my left hand; 4 deck screws in my left foot/ankle holding those suckers together; in 2005 I underwent quadruple by-pass surgery because I followed the doctors advice up until then to reduce fat in-take (no red meat eggs, bacon, etc bla, bla) fvck the doctors, I did a lot of reading and went red meat, eggs, bacon, stopped carbs, sugar, pasta, deserts and now my cholesterol is the lowest it’s ever been. not that I believe that shit, but I went from 188 lbs to 168, healthy as an ox, rod is as good as it’s ever been and fvcking life is good. I fish, target shoot and do sporting-clays with a 12 gauge shotgun.
After by-pass surgery I took up golf and got my handicap down to a 10. My lower back is all screwed up and am looking at surgery after the first of the year, only because I’m still healing from a bunionectomy a few weeks ago. I’ve been living in pain my entire adult life. My pain tolerance is so incredible I never once took any pain meds after my foot surgery.
You’ve got to learn to deal with your issues and adapt accordingly. If you sit around (with DVT I hope you are not) feeling sorry for yourself it will drive you to an early grave. If there are things you like to do, but you feel you can’t; figure out how to adapt to continue doing those things..it’s good for your mental health. I learned how to modify my fishing rods and guns to be able to handle them effectively.
Now do I mope about my situation feel sorry for myself…Hell fvcking no! I have four siblings and I’m the only one that has the health maladies that besieged my parents; how fricking lucky am I. That’s OK, you know why? As my wife tells me, ‘I can’t imagine how any of your brothers could handle what you have’. God decided that I’m the one that would be able to handle these issues…so I do.
My advice; stop writing depressing poems feeling sorry for yourself. Read some positive thinking books. Your mind is very powerful-use it for good; adapt and improvise, chase those negative feelings from your mind.
Seek guidance from the Higher Power; pick a day and declare to yourself that this is the first day that I’m gonna stop feeling sorry for myself….then DO IT; self pity is the devil; it’s ugly and beats you down; Defy it. Don’t succumb to; What do we say to the God of Despair/Self Pity? Not today!

OUR ROCK AND FORTRESS
Michael Youssef, Ph.D.
Oct 17, 2019
obeying our worthy god strength hope trust
The prophet Isaiah wrote, “When the enemy comes in like a flood, The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him” (Isaiah 59:19, NKJV). At some point, we all have felt the weight of the enemy surrounding us.
We experience panic or stress over work deadlines, bills to be paid, or relationship conflicts. We catch ourselves focusing on what people will think or say. Then we begin to suffer discouragement and even depression.comment image
No one wants to be scorned, ridiculed, or taken for granted, but at some point we will be. Even Jesus suffered the ridicule of others. The chief priests, mocking with the scribes and elders, said, “He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God'” (Matthew 27:43).
No matter what we face or how others ridicule us, God is our rock and our fortress. He is our deliverer. We can find refuge and security in Him. Although you may not feel God’s presence or help, He is near, just as Psalm 91:15 promises, “He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.”
Do you feel that God has forgotten you? The writer of Hebrews reminds us that the Lord will not forget us, for God Himself has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
So no matter what others say or how discouraged you may feel, remember that the Lord has the answer to your anxiety and despair. All you have to do is cry out to Him. He longs for you to seek His power. Ask Him to be the source of your strength and deliverance.
Prayer: Lord, thank You for never leaving or forsaking me. I cry out to You now for the strength I need for today. Thank You for Your new mercies every morning. Great is Your faithfulness. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
“Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God” (Psalm 42:11).

Psalm 18:2
2 The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;
My God, my strength, in whom I will trust;
My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

I would enjoy hearing about someone dealing with Tom Arnold the way the Sons of Anarchy dealt with him in that great TV series. They put him in the trunk of a car and ventilated it with several large caliber holes. Then they all had a great laugh and said it looks like a case of suicide. 🙂

piper567

must be a line behind Johnny Depp…
iirc, he was the first one to suggest assassination.

TheseTruths

Tom Arnold was investigated by the Secret Service last November for things he said about Pres. Trump. I think it’s time for a more thorough investigation.

TheseTruths

I don’t know how those boards of directors work. Does that often happen, that a director or a board member serves without being present? Of course there is telecommunication, but for something this important, it would seem a board member would at least go and meet the others once. It looks as if Hunter got paid for doing literally nothing. I would love to see the records of the board meetings during the time he was on the board. Let’s see who was present at the meetings, and who was there by Skype.

TheseTruths

Thanks. It looks as if someone could, at the very least, investigate whether the board was abiding by its bylaws. They could also look at the minutes of the meetings. If Hunter was found to be doing nothing, it would reflect on Joe’s role in getting him the position.

duchess01

Yes, easy peasy – If meetings are done by conference call – that would be in the meeting minutes, too – hence, there are ways and means to hunting down Hunter – and his attendance or lack thereof – I say

duchess01
Covadonga

Many years ago a board member told me he could miss a meeting, if he were sick or something, but that he would still be legally liable for any action taken by the board at that meeting.
(And I’m sure they would have kicked off anybody who kept missing meetings.)
That was American law then. Don’t know how it works in Ukraine.

Teagan

Any Boards I’ve been involved with (legitimately…not just for Bahamian get-always,…darn, never got one of those!), have attendance requirements in their documents. For example, one Board stated 3 absences and you were automatically out (with appeal, of course).
This is especially true for compensated Board positions. I’ve known “big players” that make high 6-figure incomes just attending various board meetings …always in 5 star locations, of course, with all expenses paid.

Covadonga

Your attendance requirements comment seems very realistic. If I were running a company, I think there would be something like that.

Deplorable Patriot

One of the non-profits I worked for…at least two board members NEVER, and I mean NEVER made a meeting. So long as we had a quorum, we were fine. But those two…NEVER made a meeting. They would, OTOH, be the first to sign paperwork and send it back in. This is typical for non-profits, though. It looks good on the LinkedIn page.
Business is another matter.

Teagan

LOL, DP, I always said they were the “obituary “ Board members…wanted to look good about all the philanthropic good deeds they did.
Then you also have the Service Clubs members who joined every organization in town if they were planning to run for something, such as state legislator, school board, etc. Looked great on their campaign resume, but shortly thereafter they “regret” their busy schedules didn’t permit them to continue.

Second illegal immigrant tied to ‘merciless’ sanctuary-city murder

The murder of Juan Carlos Con Guzman, the popular high school teen, has become a flashpoint in the sanctuary city debate. It follows another gang-related murder in King County, Washington, that also involved an illegal immigrant that authorities refused to turn over to ICE.
“The defendants beat the victim with a baseball bat and mercilessly chopped his neck repeatedly with a machete before dismembering the body,” prosecuting attorney Mary H. Barbosa told a judge. “The extraordinary brutality of this crime demonstrates the threat the defendants pose to the community.”
In the wake of the killings, King County officials have defended their policies and complained that ICE, by pointing out the connection between the sanctuary policies and the murders, is harassing the county.
You’re talking about literally crimes that never should have happened in this country because they’re people who, upon their first interaction with the justice system, should have been deported,” acting U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli told reporters this week.

“When I met Big T, I was going through a John Lee Hooker phase, mandatory education for anyone living in the American south. He used to look at me kind of funny when I listened to this song, but “Bad, Like Jesse James” became his “going to trial court” theme song. Instant swagger. Yet there is another song, perfect for today, in honor of Nancy Pelosi called, “Mean, Mean Woman” ”

Science Study: Rising CO2 Producing ‘Miracle’ Re-greening Effects Across the Planet
October 18, 2019
from Humans Are Free
https://www.sgtreport.com/2019/10/science-study-rising-co2-producing-miracle-re-greening-effects-across-the-planet/
Climate change myth pushers are scientifically illiterate propagandists who have brainwashed themselves against all scientific reality to somehow believe that carbon dioxide is a poison to plants.
In truth, it’s the “greening” molecule for the planet, as I’ve repeatedly explained in multiple climate videos, podcasts and climate articles.
Now, new science published in Nature demonstrates that global tree cover is rapidly expanding across the planet as CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere rise to healthier, pro-tree levels that support forest growth and health.
Yes, you read that correctly: Forestation coverage of planet Earth is expanding, not shrinking as we’re all told by the lying globalist media on a daily basis. (The same dishonest media that claimed New York City would now be under water from an apocalypse of melting ice caps… go figure.)

Plants evolved when CO2 levels were much higher than today.
They are starving now. It was even worse before the Industrial Revolution and the Second Industrial Revolution.

This will be seen a number of times, but the point I’d like to make about what James O’keefe has found EVIDENCE of… “Malice aforethought” “Purpose of causing Intentional harm” – re: regarding lawsuits for slander and libel.

It’s all on tape – just have to get it admitted as evidence in a trial, which can be done, as the group out in California just did in the Planned Parenthood suit. In fact, PP’s leader opened the door on the videos’ information, and the star prosecutor’s witness just became a witness for the defense. 🙂

I’d like to see the DOJ indict CNN and execs with charges of sedition and treason against the US, which would greatly bolster the civil case.

Tulsi Gabbard hits back!

GA/FL

Here’s the full thread:

TheseTruths

Tulsi had better get some extra bodyguards. But does Hillary still have that much control over the Dem Party and the DNC? Maybe they’re all afraid of her and still do her bidding. Maybe they’re dreading the day she announces she is running again, LOL.

GA/FL

I still left off some of it – here it is in full:
Tulsi Gabbard @TulsiGabbard
“Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a …
… concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and …
… powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.
It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.”
Talk about guts – hope Tulsi Gabbard has some good security – maybe she needs Secret Service protection. She’s gotten 41K likes so far on the first part!

This was posted in the rally thread last night. I’ve not listened to the “wide-ranging” interview, but the summary here has me interested in finding the audio.
https://patriotssoapbox.com/politics/ret-gen-paul-vallely-confirms-existence-of-q-in-interviewcomment image
from: Ret. General Paul Vallely Confirms Existence of “Q” in Interview…

General Paul E. Vallely (Major General, USA, Ret.) was interviewed by show host Mike Filip on AmeriCanuck Internet Radio of Canada, October 14, 2019. In a wide-ranging interview Filip and Vallely talked about Q-Anon, Antifa, the Deep State, politics, and the biggest threats facing the US.
Gen. Vallely was asked … “Who’s the individual calling himself or themselves Q?”
Gen. Vallely answered the following: “Q-Anon is information that comes out of a group called ‘The Army of Northern Virginia.’ This is a group of military intelligence specialists, of over 800 people that advises the president. The president does not have a lot of confidence in the CIA or the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency) much anymore. So the President relies on real operators, who are mostly Special Operations type of people. This is where ‘Q’ picks up some of his information.”
Mike Filip spoke about 8 Chan being dropped and relaunched as 8Kun, which would be backed up by a military satellite. Gen. Vallely said he didn’t know about that, but that there is a separate internet being created, one that could not be compromised because it is so high-tech. He said the Chinese are working on the concept as well.
:
:
… Gen. Vallely expressed concerns about possible Antifa Protests breaking out around the country. He also said Antifa is very well funded. Gen. Vallely calls on all mayors to stand up against Antifa protests or be arrested for not keeping them out.

W👀w! What he says about Q is believable.

General Paul E. Vallely (Major General, USA, Ret.) has just ruined any chance of posting his thoughts and opinions at the Conservative Treehouse…I’m sure he’s devastated.

How in the world did you know about that comment? Saved somewhere and super secret memory? 🙂

GA/FL

Searched Vallely and Conservative Tree House – to see if there was any ‘history’, because SD is known for his feuds, and Vallely is a firebrand of sorts. It’s easy to imagine a clash, esp. over Q matters.

ladypenquin

Okay, thanks.

GA/FL

It is disappointing if Vallely used SD’s article without citing it, though.

GA/FL

Vallely was no fan of Øbama – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_E._Vallely

Maybe he and McRaven could be on the same show and “discuss” their views.

para59r

Is this McRaven guy the same one that accused the families of Extortion 17, the ill fated group of Navy Seals flown in on a ill suited Chinook helicopter to assist rangers in Afghanistan telling them “We were being “political.” And you never mix military service and politics. Never.”, when they were questioning Obama’s Pentagon about the mysterious cover up and possible betrayal that occurred that fateful night under his watch?
Or is he the guy that was wouldn’t let the special ops community stand up during Benghazi? I get confused. Regardless people today still spit when they hear this suck up, ticket punching, Brennan defending, McRaven open his big mouth.

GA/FL

About the Army of Northern Virginia intelligence group….it’s a real thing!
“The United States Army Intelligence Support Activity (USAISA), frequently shortened to Intelligence Support Activity or Mission Support Activity, and nicknamed The Activity, the Army of Northern Virginia,[1] or Office of Military Support, is a United States Army Special Operations unit originally subordinated to the US Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) but now part of the Joint Special Operations Command. It is tasked to collect actionable intelligence in advance of missions by other US special operations forces, especially 1st SFOD-D and DEVGRU in counter-terrorist operations.”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligence_Support_Activity

Just as long as we don’t conflate the two as being one and the same “This is where ‘Q’ picks up some of his information”. Maybe important going forward, just saying 🙂

Andre Rieu The 3 Girls Singing The Rose

ladypenquin

Duchess! Never heard of this musician, but how exquisite!!!!! I loved the glitter and glitz of the gowns.
If only the fashion people would cover Melania, we’d have “dressing” back in style! I believe that the informality, sloppiness, that has overtaken our culture contributes to some of the troubles we have.

GA/FL

André Rieu is the European version of Lawrence Welk. He’s very good and very versatile.
Lots of videos on YT – https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=andre+rieu

ladypenquin

I just wandered over to YT. Have bookmarked several more to check out. Watched a couple of the bio interview ones. He lives in a castle built in 1452.

GA/FL

Wow…a castle. He’s quite a showman…loves the flourishes and frills and elegant costumes.

duchess01

Unfortunately, yes, lady – Andre Rieu is a famous violinist in Europe – he has done many orchestral concerts in various countries in Europe –

I’ve been a fan of Andre Rieu for years. Thanks for the posts tonight duchess. I’m enjoying them.

duchess01

Most welcome, Dora! I love his concerts – and he still has a concert schedule for 2019 – imagine that – amazingly talented man!

Teagan

Saw him in person in South Florida…couples were waltzing in the aisles..it was magical. Definitely a Welk or even Liberace showman style but like both of them, a sense of humor that comes out. He’s one of the few orchestra directors I can think of that plays an instrument while conducting.
I especially like the ball gowns in a variety of colors and styles worn by the females that give elegance to the experience. I go to a lot of orchestral concerts and often cringe at what the females wear…while the males always wear tux or tails.

Deplorable Patriot

These people seriously have proverbial green eyes. (Real green eyes, OTOH, can be a massive pain to make up. You should see my collection of purple eye shadow.)

Yep – next news cycle it will be emoluments, emoluments…. ad infinitum!

I think part of the reason why Trump wants these events at places he owns is because he has private security that knows these venues like the backs of their hands.

The NBA is going to be very sorry for their idiocy.

This is a great thread by someone who is in a position to know if Q is real or not. Here is the beginning tweet:
“1. So many trolls online claiming that Q isn’t real. I happen to be in a position to weigh in, with some real expertise, to say that Q is in fact real. Many of you already know this, but some are not “red pilled” and just coming out of the fog of misinformation… and scared. ”
I highly recommend reading the whole thread.
