Dear KAG: 20191030 Open Thread

We are here. The day before All Hallows Eve when parents everywhere are scrambling to get costumes finished and be sure that there is two hours worth of fun sized candy to hand out….

Oh, wait. That tradition has been wrecked, hasn’t it. Oh, well. We can enjoy some creepy music in the meantime. Here is one tune that we don’t hear all that often, but could well be one of the more haunting melodies of the American film score anthology played for once on a 1699 Stradivarius.

HA! Bet y’all thought I was going to post this:

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. Everyone here has closely held convictions and values. Stepping on them might result in something like this (start at about 1:30 in):

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. Tomorrow night while waiting for the doorbell to ring would be a good time.

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.

And…please, please, use the best critical thinking skills in making comments as tail feathers tend to raise while fire hydrants are being watered, even among friends.

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.

Today’s Lectionary tells us what is our responsibility in the bargain of salvation:

LK 13:22-30
Jesus passed through towns and villages,
teaching as he went and making his way to Jerusalem.
Someone asked him,
“Lord, will only a few people be saved?”
He answered them,
“Strive to enter through the narrow gate,
for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter
but will not be strong enough.
After the master of the house has arisen and locked the door,
then will you stand outside knocking and saying,
‘Lord, open the door for us.’
He will say to you in reply,
‘I do not know where you are from.’
And you will say,
‘We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.’
Then he will say to you,
‘I do not know where you are from.
Depart from me, all you evildoers!’
And there will be wailing and grinding of teeth
when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
and all the prophets in the Kingdom of God
and you yourselves cast out.
And people will come from the east and the west
and from the north and the south
and will recline at table in the Kingdom of God.
For behold, some are last who will be first,
and some are first who will be last.”

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

And now, on to the day’s news…..

John Minford, #SunTzu 10: 5 “On enclosed terrain, if we occupy it first, we must block it and wait for the enemy. If he occupies it first and blocks it, do not go after him; if he does not block it, then go after him.”
Oh, thank goodness, my commentators lent a helping hand! What is enclosed terrain? Tactically, it is a level plain enclosed by high mountain sides with a narrow entrance. Now that’s something I can picture, yes? Viewing it in mind, you can then follow tactical counsel.
If you get there first, you have to both occupy the terrain with your own forces, and most especially, block off the entrance. It’s got to be deadly dangerous for your enemy to attempt to enter in. Picture great wooden stakes, sharpened to a point, facing outward.
Picture you own men at the ready in battle array with your heavily armored great warriors, spearmen and swordsmen at the front and your archers behind them. Beyond formidable, you become almost impossible to attack successfully. You have the plain behind for your camp.
If you further picture water falls on the high enclosing walls, you have plentiful supply of that, and picture your sheep and cattle grazing on the plain. You will be virtually impossible to force out. You’ve mastered your own enclosure now. You’re happy.
Flip your vision. You show up, and low and behold your enemy got there first and is deeply ensconced. Do NOT go in. Don’t even attempt to break in. Leave. Build a new strategy. Don’t go in. You won’t win.
Last, if you get there BEFORE your enemy has blocked off the narrow entry, BEFORE his camp is set up and you discover his chaos, this can be the best opportunity you could ask for. Without the safety of his preparations, he’s trapped with no retreat. Attack, attack, attack!
Let’s turn to the Constitution. Most everyone has heard the term “originalist.” If you’re serious about it, then you definitely know that Judge Scalia was its greatest champion. Just in case you don’t know, it means taking the Constitution at its written word.
The other side is labeled activist, their holy grail is a “living document.” This document is not bound by its terms but by a modern judgment of the framer’s intent, or perhaps essential intent, which is then applied in an activist manner. I’d like to reframe the debate further.
I consider originalism to be the beating heart of a Constitutional Republican Warrior, and activism the beating heart of a Social Justice Warrior. And make no mistake, it is absolutely a war. And it is fought on enclosed terrain. The high hills are history and law.
The narrow entrance is the process of selection of judges and justices, especially those few appointed to the Supreme Court. And the truth is, Mitch McConnell is my hero here, something I very rarely call him. For a long time, I thought he should just call the vote on Garland.
Then recently, it hit me. He didn’t know the outcome of the election, and any disadvantage he forced on his Senators up for reelection, or new Republican candidates for the Senate could cost the Senate itself. Now that’s realpolitik. So, he decided, no vote.
What are the ripple effects of that decision? Certainly, a President Trump is one of them. We know that more Trump voters cared about the Supreme Court, and the replacement for Scalia than almost any other issue. Another is we did indeed keep the Senate in 2016.
I, for one, have absolutely not given him his due credit, and that brings us back to the enclosed terrain of originalism vs activism. Had we lost the HRC. Or, had we lost the Senate, you could have basically put paid to originalism in American history. All done. Gone.
What McConnell achieved, virtually single handedly, was to block off the other side from completing their enclosure on the narrow entry to the court. Imagine an HRC presidency and Garland on the court. Their enclosure blocked off completely.
In every rally, Trump touts the achievement of 150+ federal, originalist judges appointed – more than any president in history – and his two originalist appointments to the High Court, so far. He – with McConnell’s help – knew it was our last moment to go in after the other side.
Turn now to your own town, and its city council. Are all the districts so 100% locked up for the other side that there’s no chance of turning even one to ours? Then, they’ve completed their enclosure and you should probably leave it alone. But, what if…
Go again, back with me, all the way to, say, 2014 or so. Who could have imagined the rise of Trump? Who could have imagined the possibility of an originalist majority on the SCOTUS? We’re not there yet, but with a second term, we’re almost certain to be so.
Could it be that in your own town the other side’s “lock” on to the representative forms of government may not be quite so 100% locked down as we typically believe? Maybe they’re on enclosed terrain but have not completed their enclosure quite so completely.
Last point for today. Can you hear the new strength in Republican Senators’ voices, defending Trump relative to this sham Impeachment today, following the demise of Baghdadi? I sure do. Impeachment is absolutely enclosed terrain. And no, their enclosure is not complete.
288 verses completed, 168 to go.

This is the point for those still in the fight…

Could it be that in your own town the other side’s “lock” on to the representative forms of government may not be quite so 100% locked down as we typically believe? Maybe they’re on enclosed terrain but have not completed their enclosure quite so completely.

Fighting locally has to start with a spark of hope that something can be done.

Agree!
In the broader sense of making inroads with the left, the following gave me some encouragement today.
Here was a person that I would never have thought could be reached by any on our side, but look what happened! (She doesn’t hate us)

Maybe a first step in entrenched communities is to get a foot in the door by simply working to get free speech allowed.
When that doesn’t work, perhaps a simple act of kindness like that of picking up the trash might.

ozzytrumpster

I’m definitely going to read more of this guys stuff. Have put him on my thread reader authors

A Fortiori

One thing that makes me believe that the terrain may not be an unfavorable in the future is the fact that a lot of what PDJT has done is to dry up the funding sources for our enemy. Budget cutbacks are being seen everywhere – note how more recent false flag operations are not as slick as prior ones – and will likely show up in local elections as well.

Gudthots

Plus getting the right judges in place over time is going to keep local corrupt judges second guessing how fast their poor rulings are going to be overturned.

Wow! Not only must read, but reread!
Thank you!

Teagan

Thanks, Ozzy….he writes in a very clear, simple manner…very important, IMO.
“Enclosed terrain”, of course, is also historically called a “boxed canyon” and the American Indians were masters of luring unsuspecting troops of soldiers or other enemies into them..
I like that he gives McConnell his due credit for his masterful gamble regarding Garland …something only a seasoned politician can pull off. While we might disagree with many of the actions and unexplained thought processes of some of our long-time Congress members, unless they have personal agendas (mostly financial pay for play in some form) there’s often a long-term play involved that comes with insider knowledge and experience. It’s a complicated business, folks!
That’s why this newcomers that grab the national attention..Omar, AOC, etc…soon burn out…annoying little flashes in the pan never to be taken seriously. They create their own boxed canyons rather quickly… as Katie Hill found out.

ozzytrumpster

Absolutely. You have to build alliances on shifting sands and know where everyone’s red lines are and where their bodies are buried

In Vietnam, specifically, I understand they were really valuable for listening for trip wires.
In WWII, one of my mother’s uncles trained dogs. He joined the Coast Guard – the really underrated branch of service – and that’s what he did. Where the dogs went I don’t know.
My one brother, the retired Marine helo pilot, once had a bunch of German Shepherds he took from the base in Iraq to the Syrian border, and since it was hot they sat on the seats. He said he flipped the rotors on, and there was dog hair everywhere, but they were better behaved than the Iraqis.

The Dems are going to do what they’re going to do, but POTUS is going to do what he is going to do. He is beating them even now, that’s why they’re so desperate. Why is POTUS calling Pelosi, “Nervous Nancy”? I thought it was due to the Big Picture facing the Dems, but reconsidered – maybe she’s is NERVOUS because there’s personal dirt on her/family. 😂

Imma thinking he’s going to run
Michelle Obama accused “white folks” of running from “us,” while recounting her childhood on the South Side of Chicago.
Discussing “white flight” in Chicago neighborhoods today, Obama said, “As families like ours — upstanding families like ours who were doing everything we were supposed to do and better.
As we moved in, white folks moved out because they were afraid of what our family represented.”
https://is.gd/bWmVDT

mollypitcher5

Well gosh…Southside Chicago is such a great place now after all those “families like ours, upstanding families”…..right?! Can’t imagine why those white racists would move…now is (S)he saying that if they had stayed that the place wouldn’t be a murder zone now? His smug diatribe only proves the point that whites valued safety .
https://chicagoganghistory.com/neighborhood/south-chicago/
South Chicago soon became one of the more violent neighborhoods in Chicago and still has is one of the more dangerous neighborhoods in the city. Many parts of South Chicago are severely blighted as just about every block east of Yates Boulevard has multiple abandoned homes and buildings.

ozzytrumpster

Yep. I just think it’s telling he’s beating the drum on being persecuted racially again

patfrederick

it worked the first 2 times…third times the charm for Mochelle…

ozzytrumpster

The old magic doesn’t work anymore. People aren’t blinde by the cool, the black thing. Serious questions are being asked. Even ,very quietly in diehard supporters minds

michaelh

It was Democrats who invented red-lining with the creation of the FHA as part of FDR’s New Deal, and they maintained segregation in housing practices until the late 60s when the Civil Rights Act forced the practices to change. Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, Portland… what do all those cities have in common now, hmm? Betcha neither Zero or Mike want to talk about that.
Oh BTW, another quick question, where’s that Presidential library at again??

ozzytrumpster

Mission creep. It’s now a private residence/ house of worship for the magic negro

Deplorable Patriot

I’ll remind once again to no one in particular from the Civil War until segregation was illegal, blacks were kept contained. Locally, they were largely domestic help and lived in neighborhoods close to the upper middle class, especially in the towns on the rail lines outside the city. Here, Mechum Park (Kirkwood), The Ville (neighborhood in north city), and Kinlock (adjacent to Ferguson and was bought out for airport expansion that never happened) were the most well known. Things have changed, to an extent.

kalbokalbs

Gag reflex everytime I read anything to do with big Mike.

michaelh

BTW since they’re at it again with the “white flight” non-sense, here are some key definitions to understand housing and population migration in the United States:

White Flight: When racist white people move out
Gentrification: When racist white people move in
Blockbusting: When racist white people won’t move out (from non-whites) – bully the neighborhood until the white people move out
Section 8: When racist white people won’t move in (with non-whites) – force them to integrate

FWIW, demographers don’t use the term “white flight” – it presumes things about the people and motives in demographic change that may, in fact, not be reflected in the raw data or in the motivations of people moving.

mollypitcher5

With all of that ^^^^^ how DO they explain the almost inevitable blight and crime when it does go fully black community with the black reps, black mayors, black school board, etc ? Why doesn’t it automatically morph into a model of wealth, happiness and forward movement? Why is it that whites get the blame if they move, if they stay?

michaelh

“how DO they explain the almost inevitable blight and crime”?
Oh that’s EASY!!!
You mean you don’t know?
The answer is it’s because of “racism”.
Nevermind that the Dems own the political institutions, and the police unions, and therefore the police, who then appeal back to the corrupt politicians in a vicious circle that guarantees rampant crime and poverty…

ozzytrumpster

It’s just his racism and endless wailing about being discriminated against. In perpetual search of victimhood

scott467

Well it would be one thing if he really was a ‘victim’ of discrimination, but when you make it all the way to the WH — and you couldn’t have done it without LOTS of white votes — the jig is up.
Unless he would like to ADMIT that the vote was rigged, of course. In that case, maybe he could play the ‘discrimination’ card. I guess it depends on which is more important to him, playing the discrimination card or claiming his husband was legitimately elected.
He can’t claim both, not with a straight 5 o’clock shadow.
Claiming to be a constant victim of ‘discrimination’ when you were the first dude for 8 years is stroke-inducing cognitive dissonance.

nikkichico7

… I call bull crap 💩 ..

TheseTruths

It’s been soooooooo nice not to have the constant race-baiting from the White House. “Look at me! I’m black! And yurra rayciss!” If you just leave people alone, most will act decently, get along with those of other races, and be friendly and compassionate. The majority don’t care about race at all. It’s mostly those who are brainwashed into thinking someone else is out to get them — and they are being used and abused by the very people who claim to be their friends. The “progressives” want us to regress.
By contrast, Pres. Trump says, “Look at me! I’m rich! And I want that for you, too!” His policies are for Americans, without attention to race. And then he backs it up by boosting the economy so people can work, keep more of their money, and not pay so much to other countries.

ozzytrumpster

The one endlessly crying victimhood are either scamming a system set up to protect the vulnerable, or creating excuses for their own failings

Great read from Victor Davis Hanson
https://www.nationalreview.com/2019/10/anatomies-of-the-2020-election/
Anatomy of 2020: Weighing Issues, Candidates, and the State of Our Union
If Warren or Sanders is nominated, neither will raise much money – given that Wall Street, Corporate America, and Silicon Valley do not equate their Democratic loyalties with a suicide pact.
If Biden survives, he will raise a great deal of cash, and his future depends on how well he remembers where he is, whom he is surrounded by, and what he is supposed to say
And, I add, keeps his hands to himself

The “hands” might still be a problem, but Biden is not the Biden of old. He used to be a self-confident, back-slapping grinning guy. Now he just looks worried, IMO. And with good reason. He’s finally having to face some of the corruption he’s engaged in. He’s lost several steps as a politician. I think there are those who can’t fully see it yet, but they will.

ozzytrumpster

Yep. He scared and, I suspect, trying to establish a dementia defence. Even if his worthless spawn goes to the wolves

ladypenquin

Biden is looking frailer by the day. Dementia evident, and declining health.
The Dems actually only have him in the race to prop up their narrative of “2020 election interference” – but that’s going to be discarded as soon as they find a viable candidate. Biden is not a viable candidate, we know it, and they know it. He’s just the current front man until they can figure out who might make a race of it.

Teagan

Let’s be honest….the Dims know they cannot win this election and they need a sacrificial goat. Do they pick someone like Biden as a setting-sun politician to give money and recognition as a parting gift to him…or, do they promote a up and coming for future promotion, as they often do by assigning them to high profile Committees.
Trouble is, all the Dims up and coming types are very flawed, very radical and not terribly bright….it shows in the Committee coverage which often serves as a vetting process…..a national audition, if you will. AOC (and/or Booker) is a perfect examples…Pelosi was testing
the waters with her …big fail. Peter Principle in action.

A Fortiori

I too think that the Dems have written off this election, that they are searching for an up and coming type to burnish for the future and that they are having trouble finding someone who might fit the bill.

Teagan

Agreed. aF…and, you also have to be careful not to assign a “loser” image to that person.

Vindman may have broken the law.
I think he did!

.
https://www.citizenfreepress.com/breaking/catherine-herridge-colonel-vindman-may-have-broken-the-law/
———– From the article:
‘Colonel Vindman may have broken the law by leaking the president’s call…’
During questioning on Tuesday Colonel Vindman admitted he shared the read-outs of President Trump’s call Ukrainian President Zelenzky with several others. When Jim Jordan asked him who he shared the readouts with — Rep. Adam Schiff shut down the questioning!
Catherine Herridge: “One thing that caught my attention is that Vindman said he shared it with people who were relevant and who had sort of a need to know and proper security clearance. And, it you could just bare with me, the reason that matters is that presidential phone calls are highly classified and if they’re shared with people who don’t have a need to know that would be a potential violation of the leaking statute that is 18 USC 798. And if you watched closely this afternoon Rep. Jim Jordan said that Chairman Schiff repeatedly shut down lines of questioning including who Vindman talked to after the July 25th phone call.”

Vindman objected to certain things not being in the transcript that was released. I have a feeling DOJ did not want those points mentioned. Will be very interesting how that shakes out. My suspicion is that Trump said “perfect” because it was “perfect”.

Apropos of the organ vid, my grandfather had a thing for tuning pipe organs. I didn’t recognize the five-manual organ in the post….but, y’know, I’d suspect it was the Wanamaker if it had six [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wanamaker_Organ ]. Accordingly, I could prattle on and on and on about the characteristics, quirks, technical issues, history, and lore of pipe organs.
But that’s the sort of thing that could take over a post. Instead, I’ll just toss out a couple of teasers.
One pipe stop is the “Vox Humana” — Latin for “human voice”. This is a reed pipe with a peculiar reverberating chamber whose opening can be manipulated after the pipe is tuned to pitch. As the chamber is opened, the pipe sounds more “oo”, or “oh”, or “ah”. It is always played in three ranks, with each choral sound playing simultaneously. I’d have to imagine, however, that if we were composing contemporary pop on pipe organs, someone would have figured a way to play each rank separately, so you could alternate the “ooh, ooh”s against the “ah, ah”s.
Modern pipe organs in the middle of the last century depended on a simple valve — one per pipe — that had a horseshoe electromagnet about 1″ across and 3” long, that would attract a cork-covered disk about the size of a nickel. The disk would ordinarily hold closed against the air passage to sound the pipe from air pressure alone.
Prior to electric control, however [and, certainly, in the time of Bach], control of the various parts of the organ was done through mechanical interlock — the “positiv” system — and the amount of effort necessary to press a key depended upon which pipes you were playing. This is part of why the “Toccata” — or “Touch” — piece was so very important for organ composers — you could be playing three keyboards, one of which it took six ounces of pressure to sound a note, another of which took 10 ounces, and the third of which took 18 ounces. To be able to play gracefully and in time across all three keyboards was both an intellectual and athletic event.
Pipe organs always play at the same volume. In order for the organ to be louder or softer, it is put in a separate room separated from the listening room with shutters. In order for different parts of the organ to be louder or softer than other parts, they are put in different organ rooms with their own shutters. This leads you to things like https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wanamaker_Organ#Architectural_layout — yes, they’re talking about 16 separate rooms (with individually-controlled shutters). In addition, there are certain sounds produced in the common listening space.
Goodness……that’s after saying I’d keep it short.

michaelh

I love pipe organs… growing up I would play Bach recordings on what we in those days called “CDs” or “Compact Discs” over my dad’s “stereo set”, and if I could get away with it I would enable the subwoofer and turn the volume up extraordinarily loud so that it would shake the house… but that was as close as I could get to a real pipe organ.
I was telling my wife that if I ever had a chance to take the kids to an event locally with pipe organs I want to be sure we can go as a family, so I could hear some of the greatest compositions in history played live. Sadly her music appreciation education wasn’t as broad as I had hoped and I had to explain “Enter Sandman” for her.

cthulhu

The early days of synthesis were very much tied into organ music (see early discography of Wendy Carlos before odd meters, irregular tunings, and atonal atmospheres took over). Then things went pop, then things went sample player. I kept hoping for a ‘Wanamaker’ sample….

Teagan

I live in a small, historic town with Civil War-era churches and we are incredibly fortunate to have several pipe organs. As a result, I have become very enamored (and awed) with them and come to the conclusion that it is probably the most difficult musical instrument to play, bar none.
I’ve been fortunate to see, up close and personal, the department chairman of Juilliard play a few occasions and it’s pure magic, especially with the foot work. That’s why it really has to be seen, more than heard, to be fully appreciated…at least for me. Otherwise, it’s just church or funeral music to most.

Deplorable Patriot

For some pieces, I’ve seen organists resemble spiders as they are pulling and pushing stops, and playing the pedalboard.

Teagan

I often say they are tap dancing as they play the pedalboard. Fortunately, many of the churches now are able to have a camera focus on the pedalboard and it’s shown on a screen for everyone to see, during concerts.

Deplorable Patriot

On the actual youtube page, the specific organ was identified, IIRC.
What you describe…one big one here in the city, the Shrine of St. Joseph, still operates that way. I don’t know if it has been digitized at all, but the organists who play it complain about their calves aching after playing it.
I’m going to have to figure out a way to sing against them with earplugs. I swear the 32′ bass pipes make my ears ring. But, then I’m usually standing less than ten feet from them.

Disclaimer: This is not aimed at you personally, Wheatie, or at anyone else. Also, I love both dogs and cats. And this is not to take from the hero dog.
“On the way to battle, you’ll never hear, “Wish we had a cat.'”
…or a parrot, or a gerbil, or a potbellied pig, etc. Every animal has its own characteristics, and cat haters unfairly talk about cats as if they should be just like dogs. That’s like saying that you’ll never hear a man on the way to the guys’ poker game wish his girlfriend/wife could come along (instead of his best buddy), or you’ll never hear a woman going on a shopping trip wish her boyfriend/husband were there (instead of her girlfriend who loves to shop).
Cats have a lot of good qualities that are completely unlike those of dogs. No, they don’t go into battle, but they have been known to save people’s lives on occasion, like alerting them that the house is on fire. Cats do not have an odor or require bathing. They can be quite comfortable at home without having to be let out or walked.
“The smallest feline is a masterpiece.” – Leonardo da Vinci
Mark Twain loved cats:
“I simply can’t resist a cat, particularly a purring one. They are the cleanest, cunningest, and most intelligent things I know, outside of the girl you love, of course.”
“If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve man, but it would deteriorate the cat.”
“When a man loves cats, I am his friend and comrade, without further introduction.”

wheatietoo

It was probably aimed at those who claim that ‘Cats are better than Dogs’.
😉
I like cats too, btw.

TheseTruths

I realize now that that was originally ozzy’s post. No matter; my reply was just a little defense of cats, who get an awfully bad rap, despite “Caturdays.”

ozzytrumpster

And me. But horses for courses as they say

slowcreekno

Which one is better than the other depends on what you want the animal to do for you, then there will be differences in how well they can perform their task, and thus one may be graded as better than the other.
As in the above, about not taking other animals than dogs into battle. Dogs have abilities that are useful there. But if I wanted the animal to be successful at catching mice, I’d choose a cat for that job.
There is the interesting difference between some animals such as dogs, cats, horses on one side, and cattle or sheep on the other. The former are closer to being considered people — I am reminded of a story in an old book (Sølvfaks, 1912) about an itinerant cat, and in that story, when he appeared at a farmhouse, he was welcomed as a real visitor. «People first, then cattle» as the farmer woman said, when a cow outside was mooing for attention.

ladypenquin

“When a man loves cats, I am his friend and comrade, without further introduction.”
I believe that’s the instinctive moment – a man who loves a cat indicates a special kindness, caring.

Teagan

My DH rescued a feral cat last year and I love to hear him talk to it every morning (even though it is usually 6 am when the cat comes in to wake him up!). A life-long lover of dogs, he’s crazy about this cat and indeed to me it shows a special kindness and caring.

ladypenquin

One of my favorite sites is LoveMeow. com. Men figure prominently in a number of their kitty rescue stories. The construction worker, the guy on the way to work in his truck, the guy at the local garage, the fellow who crosses lanes of traffic to save a kitty, etc. etc. Many land up keeping the kitty they rescued – never realizing they were “Cat” persons! 😂

Deplorable Patriot

It may well depend on the breed for cats. I’m allergic, at least to Siamese, but I’ve met some big, American breed cats that were a lot like dogs. And they always seem to find me, too. My one voice teacher had a cat that liked NO ONE, and one afternoon she came into the studio and started rubbing herself on me. Same thing with dogs.

nikkichico7

See DePat they know you .. 😉🤚❤️

In Scripture, several verses state that (paraphrased) your spirit precedes you. Meaning that you can be perceived as good or evil on a level unrelated to anything you are doing. It is also true for animals. Some cats and dogs have evil spirits attached to them, and their behavior usually matches. The cat that liked no one but you simply means IMO that you were the first genuine person the cat encountered. Others, even if they behaved properly, were not as they appeared. The cat sensed it and avoided those people.
Most cats, dogs and babies are pleased with my presence. Which I appreciate.

I seem to remember reading stories of WWII where cats were sent into tight quarters (think duct-type Situations) to reconnoiter or perform other functions.

John Minford, #SunTzu 10: 4 “‘Deadlock’ means that neither side finds it advantageous to make a move. On deadlock terrain, even if our enemy offers a bait, we do not make a move; we lure him out; we retreat. And when half his troops are out, that is our moment to strike.”
Not sure why, but this verse was a bit harder for me to catch, today, than in quite some time. Maybe it’s partly because our commentators don’t seem to break it down for us very well, and I saw no concrete illustrations of the actual tactics described. I hate that.
So, back to my usual tricks:
1) Neither side can move well.
2) Don’t accept any bait proffered.
3) Lure the enemy out craftily.
4) Retreat, until half his troops our out.
5) Strike with confidence for victory.
You should see how my shoulders dropped and I breathed out happily once I could see my lovely little list of five elements. I don’t know, it just makes me feel like I understand, or maybe am beginning to understand. You know?
Let’s try a business example, first. You’re the best salesman on your team. You know your boss is taking heat over how much money the company is paying you and is angling to cut your territory or your commission rate, or maybe even fire you.
You know upper management will absolutely NOT back you, even if they’re no big fan of your weak, primarily political boss. Part of you is tempted, though, to walk in and show them what a great job you could do if they fired him and hired you. DON’T DO IT!
Even if you don’t get fired – you probably will – you surely will pick up no points and would most likely set yourself up for a coming smackdown. No, no! Rather, get creative. First, do an analysis of your territory and – NOT telling anyone about this – see where you can improve.
Seriously, identify your record month and go beat it, even if just by a percentage point or two. Then write the humblest memo thanking your boss for his tremendous support in helping you best your previous record. He is certain to take the glory, and you should be very happy.
Now, look around your team. Identify the one other salesman that shares the best chemistry with you. Take him out for lunch, you pay. Tell him you’ve had some thoughts about how his territory might offer some leverage he might want to consider. Help him build a plan.
Be clear, I’m NOT talking about faking anything here. You can always give credit up. You can always find a way to help a lateral or subordinate to improve performance. Document your work. Make the other guy look better than you. You will escape the deadlocked territory.
But what about a genuine bad guy boss, one really out to get you right now? Again, similar tactics will assure you success. Document everything. Write careful, solid reports. Improve your own performance and others’ too. And wait for your bad guy boss to reveal himself.
If your performance is on the upswing, it will be your performance that protects you. And, if that fails and you do get canned, your documentation assures you the ability to find a new and better job. That too is stepping back and luring your enemy half way out of the terrain.
Who remembers the movie Kingdom of Heaven with Orlando Bloom? There’s a great scene in which, having bested his enemy but shown him mercy, his enemy tells him that all his enemies will know his color. That’s part of how you win political battles at work. They all know your color.
All good souls around the world today celebrate the death of Abu Baghdadi. I watched a fair bit of analysis over the day, and here’s something I did not hear. The only audience for Impeachment that matters are the Republican Senators. Trump lured them out of deadlock today.
Like any other group in the world, the only thing that matters is their own prediction of victory, in this case, victory 2020. As long as Republican Senators feel victory is in the wings, they can then consider supporting Trump. You could hear the joy in their voices today.
I try to make my real predictions on the basis of data, but I always end up making early predictions just by analysis alone. On that basis, while I’ve thought it all along, I have to say that today really was the turning point for 2020 victory. I believe Trump did it again.
And how? He retreated out of deadlocked terrain between Syria and Turkey and lured all his opponents in. Then, and you know he knew he would, he takes out Baghdadi to universal acclaim. What’s more, he shows the world he’s no wimp, and in the best possible way.
Can’t you see him back in the Oval Office saying, “Pence, where’s that Diet Coke I asked you to hold for me?” Oh, and the press. 35 minutes following a-10 minute speech. Did you hear Howie Kurtz say that no other President, ever, would have done that? Oh yeah.
And if you were listening, did you hear the respectful tones not only from each questioner, but from the entire room? This is EXACTLY what Master Sun means when he tells us to lure the enemy out, wait till half his troops have advanced, and that’s the moment to strike.
You have to admit, it’s just inspiring, don’t you?

Whopping good thread – esp. this part:
“Members of Congress on both sides of the aisle have been stridently demanding that the DOJ cough up to them the key SpyGate evidence so they can…what?
Watchdog groups like Judicial Watch and Fake News Media outlets like the NYT’s and Washington Post file lawsuits trying to compel the DOJ to hand over the key SpyGate evidence so they can…what?
Well so they can take 3 years of careful investigating without any real leaks, and three years of careful preparation by serious professional investigators and
SHITCAN IT and flush it all down the toilet.
And you can quote me on that.
Members of Congress want it so they can publicize it to the entire world just as fast as they can get their hands on it by leaking it to the news media. So they can run for reelection on it.
So they can leak bits & pieces to drive the narratives they want to sell.
Judicial Watch wants it so Fitton can pound his rather muscular chest & strike a heroic pose and act like he’s the only one doing any investigating since Sessions, Barr, Durham, Horowitz & other dedicated public servants supposedly haven’t been doing their jobs or something.
While he does a lot of good stuff, Fitton is **smart enough** to know why he can’t have key grand jury material & evidence from ongoing investigations no matter how many times he files FOIA requests or many times he goes on TV complaining the DOJ won’t give it to him.
And the NYT’s and the Washington Post file this stuff because they are complicit players in the SpyGate target leaks and they want to force the DOJ to show it’s hand.
None of these people are getting what they wanted, so they sell alternative narratives to the public why.”

ladypenquin

I just reread it. It’s a great thread. Cates has been held to this theory from the beginning. Nothing I’ve seen refutes his logic. It’s clear the Leaks did stop. Heck, no one knew the Ops that was intended post Syrian “pullout.”
Letting anyone, even our own side, know about investigations is the surefire way to ruin it completely. Evidence gets destroyed, and forget about getting an indictment or conviction. Entire cases have been blown because the wrong people were able to snake their way out of trouble once they learned details.

GA/FL

Exactly right!

A Fortiori

Much of the Judicial Watch activity is theater. Fitton knows he won’t get some of the stuff he asks for, but he kicks up a fuss because the controversy will create attention and the attention will let us know this stuff is important. It helps highlight the underlying activity.
