Dear KMAG: 20200105 Open Topic

This Superlative Sanctuary Sunday Open Thread, with full respect to those who worship God on the Sabbath, is a place to reaffirm our worship of our Creator, our Father, our King Eternal.

It is also a place to read, post and discuss news that is worth knowing and sharing. Please post links to any news stories that you use as sources or quote from.

In the QTree, we’re a friendly and civil lot. We encourage free speech and the open exchange and civil discussion of different ideas. Topics aren’t constrained, and sound logic is highly encouraged, all built on a solid foundation of truth and established facts.

We have a policy of mutual respect, shown by civility. Civility encourages discussions, promotes objectivity and rational thought in discourse, and camaraderie in the participants – characteristics we strive toward in our Q Tree community.

Please show respect and consideration for your fellow QTreepers.

Before hitting the “post” button, please proofread your post and make sure you’re addressing the issue only, and not trying to confront the poster.

If you feel the need to bare your fangs, we have a companion site – called The U Tree – where you can run wild and free with the Wolfpack where all legal free speech is allowed.

But NOT HERE in The Q Tree. Personal attacks, name calling, ridicule, insults, baiting and other conduct for which a penalty flag would be thrown are VERBOTEN.

In The Q Tree, we’re compatriots, sitting around the campfire, roasting hot dogs, making s’mores and discussing, agreeing, and disagreeing about whatever interests us. This board will remain a home for those who seek respectful conversations.

Please also consider the Important Guidelines, outlined here. Let’s not give the Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven that Wolf has created for us.


The Storm is upon us.
Please remember to Pray for our President.


AND WHAT TIME IS IT?
TIME TO DRAIN THE SWAMP!!!

Our movement is about replacing a failed and CORRUPT political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People. ~ Candidate Donald J. Trump


Also remember Wheatie’s Rules:

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


On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, you can find something here that will build you up a little . . . give you a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God; do not mourn nor weep.” . . . “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”


What then should we do? 


I started writing this Sunday thread thinking that it would be about the Fruit of the Spirit. Then that sort of morphed into the larger picture of how the Holy Spirit is our Helper from God, guiding and teaching us, in more ways than His fruit. And then that changed to what we should be doing to grow into the mature Christian life God wants us to live. And that led into writing down many of the specific things God’s Word tells us to do as Christians . . . members of His family. And that led to the following thoughts:



When John the Baptizer was baptizing for repentance and the forgiveness of sins, he warned the people to “Bear fruits worthy of repentance.”  And those crowds kept asking him “What then should we do?” (Luke 3)

Paul posed a similar question in his letter to the Roman Christians. “What then are we to say? Should we continue in sin in order that grace may abound? By no means! (Romans 6:1-2)  He was referring to how we should act, given that God’s grace has freed us from the Law.

James addressed our actions, also, saying “But someone will say, ‘You have faith, and I have works.’ Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works.”, stressing the importance for our actions to demonstrate our faith.

Almost 800 years earlier than Jesus, God, speaking through the prophet Hosea said “For I desire mercy and not sacrifice, and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. (Hosea 6:6), saying that God wants to see real, meaningful action more than observance of ritual.

This leads up to a very pertinent question for today.  Given that we are Believers, how should we act?  “What then should we do?”


Some people think that God’s got a bunch of rules that He lists in the Bible for us to obey and, if we aren’t careful to follow His rules, He’s not going to be very happy with us and we can expect some kind of retribution.

As Christians, we believe in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross, that His death was the once for all time sacrifice for our sins.  God counts our faith in Christ as righteousness and has forgiven our sins for all time (past, present and future). And there is now no condemnation for us who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set us free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8:1-2)

Now this got me to thinking . . .

Now that my sins have all been forgiven by God’s grace, and my faith in Christ is counted as righteousness, and there is no judgement for my sin in the future, the question now arises: How should I then live? 

This question is answered by Paul in the book of Romans: “. . . present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind . . .” (Romans 12:1-2) . . . put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh . . . (Romans 13:14)

Well, still thinking here . . .

I’ve been chosen by God, and not because of anything about me or anything I’ve done. God has forgiven my sins and I will not be judged because of them. God has promised me an eternity with Him and Jesus in heaven with a glorious new body, everlasting joy, and unimaginable wonders.

Now, given all that . . . just how grateful should I be? I don’t think it’s possible, if we fully understood what God has done for us and the wonders of heaven, for a human being to express that level of gratitude.

But certainly, I should be grateful enough to search God’s Word for how He wants me to live. And once I find that information on how He wants me to live, to make an absolutely conscious, determined effort, every day of my life, to live in that manner. How could I possibly do less for all that I have gained and will shortly be gaining?


Briefly then, thinking about Paul’s answer to how I should live in Romans, some real-life questions come to the fore.

Have I searched God’s Word and have I learned how He tells me I should be living my life?

Am I making a conscious, determined effort to live in that manner?

How much time am I spending at things that might interest me but are not part of what should be involved in living and maturing in the Christian life?

If I’m with a secular or mixed group, am I just one of the crowd, or do my words and actions stand as a good Christian example?

Am I following God’s Word in my one-on-one interpersonal relationships, Christian or secular?

And quite a few more . . .


Now, lest anyone think I’m being sucked into the maelstrom of legalism in a sea of rules and regulations . . . not happening.  God clearly calls us to repentance, righteousness, holiness, and godliness, but because of His mercy and grace, He is abundantly clear that the Christian life is to be filled to overflowing with freedom, hope, peace, joy and love . . . as well as gratitude, thanksgiving, praise and worship.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13)

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.  (Philipians 4:4-8)

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. (John 8:32)
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. (John 8:36)

In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)



I knew I’d be interested when writing these Sunday threads and, perhaps even more, I wanted the preparation and involvement to speak to me. Well, I think that’s happening.


The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord look upon you with favor,
And give you peace.

Nice open thread Carl, I hope someday to be right in Gods eyes and break free from this curse that is upon me.

pgroup

Nobody can be right in God’s eyes on his/her own power. Only being washed in the blood of Christ makes a person “right” in God’s eyes.
Also, what you call a curse might simply be a teaching test designed to sharpen your life skills.
Read the Book of Job over and over until you see the events from Job’s point-of-view, rather than your own perceptions. Job knew things most don’t know, even though he was no different than most.
Faith and prayer will get you where you need to be.
Bless you, friend.

wolfmoon1776

WOW. Yeah.

ladypenquin

Yes, it’s statements like that which reinforce where this is going. Wolfie, did you see my question, re: SD/CTH’s belief that Lawfare via the Mueller investigation of 2 years has piles of oppositioal research to use against POTUS and GOP in 2020 election? This is where I do have concern (not that there is dirt) but the idea of how the Lefties leak information out of context to cause harm.
What are your thoughts on this? SD says Lawfare is looking for way to leak things “legally” and will do so… I say the President is going to get them all before they can cause harm.

GA/FL

The Democraps ain’t got nothing – or they would have used it long before now!!!

wolfmoon1776

Several thoughts:
(1) Their crap does nothing on US if we either don’t listen or talk back
(2) Their crap does even less if we talk back and get others to see that it’s not only lies but wicked outrageous bullshit based on information stolen by an illegal investigation.
(3) Better to know what weapons the enemy is using than to just ignore, because if we don’t fight back, we don’t WIN – so Sundance is right to go after this stuff, and yet….
(4) Better to ignore, than to become an Eeyore, so…..
(5) We need to stay true to ourselves – OPTIMISTIC FIGHTERS THAT ARE WORTH THE OTHER SIDE CONTINUING TO TRY TO TAKE US DOWN.
And they ARE trying to take us down. They are constantly trying to send in SHILLS, FEEB, and SUICIDE TROLLS.
I do not believe that the timing of taking them down is dependent on protecting POTUS – at all. Thus, expect him to continue to get hit hard. He’s tough. We’re tough. It takes however long it takes.
Doesn’t matter now – the FAKE NEWS is completely discredited. Which is probably good, because if they go on too long, they will all start fitting nasty narratives COUGH COUGH.

ladypenquin

Which goes with what Rep Ratclift said this on Maria’s show:
“Justice delayed does not mean Justice denied.”

BlackKnightRides

PERSPECTIVE:
Listening twice to a Demo☭rat is like thumbing a second ride with a RAPIST.

prognosticatasaurusrex

Wolfe, I got extremely busy yesterday, did not even see my pc. As promised though a day late, I will shortly be posting my entire book on my blog.
I will post the link here with a simple couple requests in the bottom of this open forum. Thanks for any help.

All these pro Solelmani people morning an terorist tell us where and who the sleeper cells are. I hope out intel keeps watching and keeps notice and do their jobs instead trying to coup a US president.

Gail Combs

I hope they are doing facial recognition and TRACKING!

mollypitcher5

they could probably save time by deep diving into Tlaib and Omar’s recent contacts

Gail Combs

Do not forget AG Session or Barr PLUS President Trump can put a ONE YEAR FISA on them WITHOUT going through the FISA COURT.
Letting Tlaib, Omar, Kerry, Feinstein, Piglosi, Schumer, Shiffty, Soros, Comey…. run free has probably yielded ALL sorts of useful info.

mollypitcher5

Yep..all of them. Has to be a treasure trove of info . Even with their devotion to iran/hez/hamas they also must understand that their “friendship” means nothing and if they can’t promise something then they’re no longer valuable

HUGE — BREAKING NEWS: Iranian Regime Offers $80 MILLION for President Trump’s Head
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/01/huge-breaking-news-iranian-regime-offers-80-million-for-president-donald-trumps-head-video/

Deplorable Patriot

So, they’re going to pay for a bounty on our leader using our money? I mean, thought they were broke other than the pallets of cash.

wolfmoon1776

They can get a LOAN from the CANKLES FOUNDATION or SOROS.

Gail Combs

Who said they would actually keep the bargain?
They are mussies and mussies LIE!!!

rf121_says_Sedition_is_a_Dangerous_Game.

It was sort of a strange sum of money. Maybe they checked the pallets and that is all that was left.

socaristobo

Someone should give them Kathy Griffin’s contact information. I believe she has a spare and with her career in the toilet she could probably use the money.

TheseTruths

Don’t tell Kathy Griffin…

Deplorable Patriot

Check out the wall behind all the Iranian nutcases in the video.

Have we seen a similar backdrop before?comment image
I swear there’s a movie out there with a similar set, but off the top of my head, I don’t remember what it is.

mollypitcher5

Good catch DP..those coincidences fascinate me

Deplorable Patriot

You could make a case for both Chambers of Congress as well, but it isn’t quite as obvious. There’s also a scene in the 1927 “Metropolis” that has something similar. Just having been in theater and watching movies forever, these things catch the eye.

Gail Combs

So they Iranians warn targeting religious sites would be a war crime…. WHAT ABOUT NOTRE DOME and the other churches???

wolfmoon1776

The Iranians specialize in well-denied crimes. Interesting. They’re all over France, too.

mollypitcher5

Notre Dome and all the ancient sites all over the ME that were turned into rubble…they’re liars and hypocrites latching onto the psycho babble that’s been shoved down the West’s throat…we can rape, maim and kill but slap on the wrist but don’t put bacon in front of our shop or you’ll go the prisonn..and on it goes

Deplorable Patriot

If any move into my neighborhood (unlikely given that no one at this end of the block is in the market to move that I know of), STL style ribs done low and slow, with a side of pork steaks. Of course, adult libations will be flowing, and the dogs will be in the yard.

mollypitcher5

so when they specify what would be a war crime..are they declaring war?

para59r

If it’s a religious site built in the last seven centuries it should be fair game. Others we should seriously consider.

BlackKnightRides

POTUS just triggered Demo☭rats and Iranians to expand his Target List for him!
VSG

Gail Combs

GEE, Let’s figure out just how many countries we can piss off in 24 hours….
I have a STRONG feeling Iran is going to be having so much trouble with internal unrest, they will be way too busy to follow through with foolish threats.

He Hath Spoken.
My dad is convinced that Trump did the Salami Strike to distract from impeachment.
I didn’t even bother to try to point out that he WANTS the trial.

Gail Combs

If Miss Lindsey is to be believed the Sham-peach-mint should be over by the end of the month. Wether Piglosi wants to give the Senate the Articles or not.

SteveInCO

It seems to me the Senate should be able to do something to either force their delivery or declare it moot.
I’m not savvy enough on law or Congressional procedure to even be able to speculate what that might be, though.

GA/FL

McConnell is a whiz bang parliamentarian and has many constitutional scholarly resources. I bet he’s made a very smart plan to deal with the Scam-peachment.

SteveInCO

The big question will be whether there will be a nice, revealing trial. 🙂

GA/FL

Either way – Trump is in a win-win-win-win….situation.

SteveInCO

Yeah, one might get tired of it…
In about ten thousand years.
Not today!

Gail Combs

Miss Lindsay said on Fox — Clips on Dirty truth:

That the Senate is not about to allow Piglosi to dictate terms and if she does not cough up the articles they will just change the Senate rules and hold the trial anyway. The Turtle has said much the same and another Senator has already introduced a bill to dismiss.
Piglosi trying to usurp the power of the Senate is NOT going over well at ALL!

GA/FL

They got her trapped – she has painted herself into a corner.

TheseTruths

Senator Josh Hawley will seek to have the charges dismissed, tomorrow.
https://pjmedia.com/trending/senator-josh-hawley-to-seek-dismissal-of-impeachment-articles/
“”My proposal will take form of motion to update Senate impeachment rules to account for this unprecedented attempt to obstruct Senate trial.”
“Hawley’s proposal is an interesting one that will likely inspire much debate, as many in the GOP would prefer an acquittal over a dismissal.”
More endless debate? Stay tuned.

CM in TN

The Constitution does not have a requirement that the House actually deliver them to the Senate. It only says that the House votes on the articles and the Senate conducts the trial. The House rules do not apply to keeping the Senate from starting the trial since the vote for impeachment has already occured. They had their vote, it’s in the Senates hands at this point.

SteveInCO

That’s a good a legal theory as any.
(I do know that lawyers talk of “the theory of a case” meaning what the prosecution thinks happened…or the defense thinks happened, and how it should be judged under law. And I use “theory” above in that sense.)

Deplorable Patriot

Oh, good Heavens. My condolences. It was bad enough in the choir loft this morning when I told the blue dog Dem defense lawyer that since he didn’t believe in conspiracies, he was ill-informed. At least the dirty old man didn’t mention impeachment.

Deplorable Patriot

Not that Steve’s dad is a dirty old man. No, that designation belongs to my friend the blue dog Dem lawyer.

BlackKnightRides

IMO, POTUS will be using Demo☭rat REACTIONS to the strike to
• Brand their Party as a TERRORIST PROTECTION RACKET
• Brand their SCAMpeachment as a RACKETEERING HIT JOB funded by our ENEMIES.

Gail Combs

It is amazing how many commenters call Dan a liar and say none of that is true.
I wonder where they were these past three years?

It certainly exposes the fact that the islamic collective no matter what their various individual cult beliefs are all united in one goal. Kill Americans .

duchess01

No surprise there, I guess, molly

SteveInCO

Little enough surprise that an electron microscope can’t find it.

Chimpy

I don’t think the root motivation for Islamic fundamentalists (and the dictator masters) is to “kill Americans”. It’s that America is the only entity left on this planet that can still stop their worldwide dominion.
Not that it makes any difference to your post above. Am just clarifying “why” Americans are at risk, IMO.

singingsoul1

Why were we not prepared for an attack on our base? Anyplace where there are Muslim fanatics we need to ward off any potential attack. Did we think Kenya is safe? I do not think so.

duchess01

Dunno, sing – sure does appear to be suspect – all bases should be on high alert – perhaps – this was planned well in advance of recent events.

ForGodandCountry

Wut?
What makes you think our people were unprepared??
Explain.

ForGodandCountry

Hint: there is absolutely ZERO information in that press release to even barely imply our people “were unprepared”.
Just the opposite, in point of fact.

singingsoul1

If they were prepared they would not have casualties?
Did we hear that those who attacked had casualties?

ForGodandCountry

Ahhh. I get it now.
You think there would be no casualties if our people “were prepared”.
Of course, actually reading the article linked BEFORE posting is always wise, as you would have learned that “At least four attackers were killed” during the attack.
smh

singingsoul1

I did not say I am perfect 🙂

duchess01

Hmmm…

ForGodandCountry

Interesting.
I never thought Sundunce would openly admit he is an idiot as far as the MSM is concerned.

mollypitcher5

Another islamic faction who takes the cowardly action of murdering innocent people as retaliation or probably it’s closer to truth that they slaughtered them because they were Christian.
I’m so sick of them using the cover of “religion” to hide under . They’re tyrannical despots…all of the mullahs, the austere leaders, the imams

GA/FL

I H8 Islam more every day.
Islamonazis have committed 5-6 murderous atrocites per day since 9/11/01

duchess01

They hide under the auspices of a ‘fake’ religion with ‘fake’ leaders who worship a ‘fake’ god! Their fearless leader who allegedly started this ‘so-called’ religion was a BUM!!!

ForGodandCountry

People should stop calling it a “religion” and call it what it is….
…a geopolitical ideology.

duchess01

Either way – religion or ideology – it is suppressive brainwashing that requires a ‘yes’ to convert and live and/or a ‘no’ to reject and die – even if you convert – you will never be one of them – hence – there really is no choice – their goal is to eliminate all that is not of them.

Volgarian8301

As a side note, the caps in Media Posts is interesting…..

What are your thoughts on the Media Posts caps?

Volgarian8301

May be just wishful thinking, but when I see MP, I think Military Police😉

coosmama

So, is this a “published legal notice”, like in the Classified Ads? Did POTUS just confirm twit is a publisher? 🙂

GA/FL

Yeppity yep – he did just that!

ForGodandCountry

Praise the Lord and pass the biscuits!!
“…and perhaps in a disproportionate manner.”
Retaliatory strikes should almost ALWAYS be disproportionate.
“Proportionate” strikes do not deter a damn thing from happening later.

SteveInCO

Ah, yes….COLORADO….
We have the loosest damned election procedures…Well, I shouldn’t say “in the country” because for all I know other places might be worse. But they’ve loosened up a LOT over the past few years.
It’s no longer even possible to go to a voting both. You MUST mail your ballot in or drop it off.

If it is true, that she is an asset of their governments, then their governments must be held to account for enabling the child rape and human trafficking…no excuses, no exceptions.

Ok everyone, as promised, I am posting my book in its ENTIRITY on my blog for three days only. I welcome comments, suggestions, critiques, etc/. I feel NOW is the time that we should be spreading the word. It is why I am doing this.

gil00

Congratulations on your achievement. Everyone can armchair quarterback but most dont do the work. Writing isnt easy so good for you for getting over a yuge hurdle.

prognosticatasaurusrex

TY Gil, it was a chore, but a labor of LOVE. I knew it NEEDED to be said, and I did not know if I could do it, yet I think it turned out well for my first attempt at writing, and the first time I had written anything of note since College.
I took a great sense of accomplishment in being able to do it and say that I did it. If you read the Forward, you will see I dedicated the book to my wife, children, and grandchildren, who put up with me while I wrote it.
I find it is VERY hard to write, work, and have a family life. Once on a “roll” it is HARD to stop and then pick back up. I would write in the evenings and then not stop till 2 or 3 AM and THEN go to work. It was TOUGH, but WORTH it. God helped me A LOT, in fact, I think he inspired and guided me in this endeavor!

gil00

Yep. Now we know why some authors shut themselves in their office for hours(and others use it as an excuse to avoid their family). Im happy you found the balance. 😉

P-Rex – Thank You!
Through Chapter 10. Great read. Easy read. Confirms much I/we know, AND much I either forgot or didn’t know.
Lurk here awhile, then pick up with CH 11.
Fully anticipate completing the read within the three days.
That said, just ordered paperback from Amazon.
Fully appreciate your skills assembling this book AND making it available to QTree folks for three days.
ALWAYS, look forward to your posts P-Rex;-)

Twitter is up to tricks with this “your follow follows THIS” stuff. I finally decided to call them out on this.
Look for PATTERNS in what Twitter has to REACH FURTHER to show you – always for either testing, influence, or BOTH. AND LOGIC.
https://twitter.com/WOLFM00N/status/1213926692965822465

Alison

What pisses me off is I rarely see my OWN follows in my timeline. I see what people I follow ‘like’ or the kind of promo you show, but Twitter hides the people I select to follow. It’s nutzzzzzz

wolfmoon1776

Twitter USES itself to (1) find out what you think, and then (2) control what you think.
I precipitated the above tweet by following a tip from Jewish Deplorable about some propaganda actions in New York, connected to a [non-hyperlinked] reference to a far-leftist, Pal-pal, Jewish organization’s account. They are a typical commie cabal org, pushing the “white nationalist” narrative. So the next day, Twitter dumps a selected “outside my sphere” tweet testing / pushing that “white nationalist” meme, using a reaction tweet from an account that reacts to the sick anti-American meme using retro-American symbolism.
Now I could just “like” it, but that’s not enough, and feeds into their leftist propaganda.
In fact, let me dump deadly retaliation on Twitter, by pushing legislation against ANTI-CHRISTIAN activity, to MATCH legislation on ANTI-SEMITISM. CROSS-FIRE ON ISLAMIC RADICALISM.

Alison

They really think we are stupid !!
The ONLY reason I’m on twitter is Trump.
And the Trump tweets NEVER come through my feed!!
It’s not rocket science to see manipulation THAT obvious!
Of course they don’t fuck with me like they do you – you’re on the radar 🥺

wolfmoon1776

They’re still messing with you – trust me – it’s all highly automated!!!

Alison

Grrrrrrr President Trump’s tweet today (‘officially’ notifying Congress of possible future strikes) implies he is using Twitter as a publishing medium. If Jack & Congress let that slide, will it set a precedent having future ramifications for speech, and Twitter’s suppressive & manipulative actions? 🤔🤔 Fingers crossed …
Social media won’t go unscathed in a second term, I bet!

Alison

Maybe I should toss a Lefty word in at the end of each tweet. Or follow a bunch of Lefties but mute them. Hmmm there must be ways we can mess with the algorithms …

wolfmoon1776

Best way – seriously – is if we ALL GO TO GAB AND PARLER!!! 😀

Alison

No kidding! Will Parscale get Trump to move? Honestly I don’t think I’m the only one waiting for him.

wolfmoon1776

My guess is that GOP strategy and analytics are all built around Twitter, plus other reasons that they think the battle is better there. They have knowledge I don’t – I won’t second guess them. All I can say is that for US, Twitter is nasty, and prevents US from networking to full advantage.

Alison

I think you are right. Are you spending enough time on GAB that you’ve found analysts equivalent to folks like Praying Medic and Draw & Strike, etc. or the new voices like Candace & Scott Pressler?
I still find GAB hard to navigate to find the best.
Do you think it’d be worth you posting another ‘lesson’ re: using Gab and/or your recommendations for folks to follow or best ways to search?
We all took your last lesson about getting on Gab to heart, and then most of us petered out during one of Gab’s confusing updates!

wolfmoon1776

Yes, Gab has some great stuff there. Neon Revolt has a huge group there that is getting a lot of Q work done.

Wow…..Is the light finally breaking through the darkness OT

Vol,
one would need to be pretty blind not to see it before… !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TheseTruths

Exactly!

ForGodandCountry

Prolly not.
After all, we are talking about the idiot who believes PDJT has a plan to deal with China, trade agreements, and our economy, but no plan whatsoever for dealing with the DS/gov’t cabal.
This same idiot calls us the “Trusty Plan” people (in reference to Q) yet AT THE VERY SAME TIME writes extensively on PDJT’s economic plan to reset global trade in favor os America.
The derp is strong OT.

As my son loves to say, herp derp!

Hi to all, spending the day cleaning up after the big dinner party last night, a resounding success. But, my lower back is protesting mightily of about 10 hours of standing on the tile floors. Getting to old for this big scale entertaining any more, sad to admit. I mentally counted that we entertained 50 different friends since Xmas Day , all different settings and menus. Now I’m ready to hibernate for the winter!
One amusing thing…there were three tables set up and I more or less grouped by common interests…a horse set group, people who lived and worked in similar areas overseas, etc. One of the guests said, when he saw the names on the place cards…”Oh good, we can talk politics at this table!” LOL

phoenixrising37

Get some well-deserved rest Teagan…
So happy it turned out well, and you’re all cleaned up…

zorrorides

Some day – we’ll have a grand fun meetup, with fine buffet and wine on the table, and enjoy each other.

phoenixrising37

Wouldn’t that be wonderful!

Teagan…
I rather drag 600 pounds of feed into the storage area and dump the feed into the barrels, which I just did, than host and clean up after dinners for fifty!!
More power to you friend.

I don’t trust FAKE NEWS… will wait for POTUS’ tweets

“One U.S. service member and two American Department of Defense contractors were killed in a terror attack on a military base in Kenya that houses some U.S. military personnel. The Somali terror group al-Shabab has claimed responsibility for the attack that Kenyan authorities said had been repelled with four militants killed in the fighting.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and friends of our teammates who lost their lives today,” U.S. Army Gen. Stephen Townsend, commander of U.S. Africa Command, said in a statement Sunday afternoon.”
[…]
“Last week, al-Shabab carried out a car bomb attack in the heart of Mogadishu that killed at least 80 civilians.
“Al-Shabab is a brutal terrorist organization,” U.S Army Maj. Gen. William Gayler in a statement. “It is an Al-Qaeda affiliate seeking to establish a self-governed Islamic territory in East Africa, to remove Western influence and ideals from the region, and to further its jihadist agenda. U.S. presence in Africa is critically important to counter-terrorism efforts.” – https://abcnews.go.com/International/us-military-confirms-terror-attack-us-base-kenya/story?id=68075337
AL SHABAAB JUST MADE ITSELF A TARGET!
Both Al Shabaab and Boko Haram have picked the wrong time to act out – President Trump is all out of patience with terrorists – and they should get ready for their final destinations courtesy of US military.

Lindsey Graham Blasts “Loser” Kaepernick’s “Racist, Un-American” Comments
From zeroHedge
Update (1600ET): The blowback from Kaepernick’s ridiculous tweeted statement yesterday has continued today with Republican Senator Lindsey Graham blasting the former NFL player during an interview with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo this morning…
“He’s a loser on and off the field,” Graham began, adding that Kaepernick “has no idea what the Iranian regime has done to the region. He has no idea that they have 600 American deaths as a result of IEDs made in Iran, used in Iraq.”
“It’s un-American. He’s a racist,” Graham added.

“If you’re looking for racism in America, then Mr. Kaepernick look in the mirror.”
Graham also said that Kaepernick was siding with Iran because he’s been “blinded by your hatred” towards the president.
“Your country’s not the problem. It’s the Iranians and you’re so blinded by your hatred of Trump that you can’t see the difference between who we are and who the Ayatollah is,” Graham said.
“Pretty sad.”

A slapdash timeline of December/January:
Pentagon resignations
The great #QAnon POTUS tweetstorm
False flags on a synagogue and church
US embassy attack
“Earthquakes” in Iran
Soleimani assassination

Followed (and preceded) by high-level treasonous leaks.
Followed by Democrats acting like we just took out Obama’s brother.
Followed by an attack by Ilhan Omar’s friends, Al Shabaab.

Actually, the liberals would probably be THRILLED if they took out Obama’s brother!

Nothing like interfering with the strategy, and then telegraphing the new strategy to the enemy. Dems think they are in charge of America and setting our foreign policy.

Trump really has gotten them to show their true colors that’s for sure

Yes he has

How much you want to bet all these ‘experts’ can’t even point out WHERE Iran is on the map!!!
