Dear KMAG: 20200124 Open Thread

Welcome to the Friday OPEN THREAD at the QTree! What a week it has been. Thank you for the Thursday hand-off TrumpIsMine. What would we do without FLEP’s News Roundup to keep up? Thank you, Flep. Hat tip and a hearty thank you to all contributors and the lurkers!

We don’t believe in political correctness at QTree. 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. Important Guidelines are outlined here in the January 1st open thread, with an addendum on 20191110. In other words, please keep it SOMEWHAT civil. We have a new board – actually a new SITE – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation. NOT HERE. This board will remain a REFUGE for those who need civility, either some or all of the time. That’s life at QTreehouse as we head into the weekend.

Are you dizzy from too much winning? Just so we’re all on the same page…. Wednesday we received the biggest Birthday present, ever = effectively annihilating the WTO. Today, the President will speak to 500K people who support LIFE as they march up Constitution Ave (while Schiff is trying to impeach Trump and ignore our vote). The timing is PERFECT. And over the weekend, maybe by Tuesday, the President will release a plan for Peace in the Middle East. Catch your breath!

Pour another cup of coffee. Cuzzzzz, “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet”. We’re on Wolfie’s magic rollercoaster, Remember? Wolfie told us what to expect! Fasten your seat belts and hang on!

Today is the March For Life in DC. We have a separate thread scheduled and hopefully looking for a contribution from Lady Penguin. President Trump will be the first President to attend in person. We know the Trump Admin is strongly pro-life for all the right reasons, but take a look at the politics……. for tomorrow. President Trump will be OUTSIDE speaking to 500K people who are in DC to protest politicians who want to kill babies. Inside, Adam Schiff is trying to impeach the President of the United States for a non-crime…. Amazing

Still raining at our house. Hope you guys are warm and dry!

SPEAK THE FIVE WORDS BOLDLY TO OUR PRESIDENT!, “I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!“ He needs our prayers and help more than ever before!

And remember….. it is time to drain the swamp in DC and LOCALLY. Please make a commitment in the new year to attend a LOCAL board meeting for your town or municipality or school board. Get involved and make your presence known. Put your local officials phone numbers in your cell phone and call them once a week (or more often).

“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.

We have ONE MORE DAY of Democrats for the Shampeachmint and our team takes the field. Put another pot of coffee on, please. We’re busy at the Q Tree!

  • This past Wednesday, the day the President came home from Davos, was the Trump’s 15th wedding Anniversary……. I’m thinking FLOTUS may have received a Swiss Watch with a few diamonds….. (Smile!) He brought us a present too, a rework of the WTO!
  • Yesterday the President was in Florida at the annual winter meeting for Republicans – he wasn’t there last year because of the shut down. The RNC loves President Trump’s record fundraising. Good idea to go, tighten up the donor base going into Shampeachment votes.
  • Today the President speaks at the March For Life and will be the FIRST President to do so. Conservatives will take over DC today, flooding the zone.
  • Next week we have TWO rallies, one in New Jersey (already 100K tickets requested) and one in Iowa.
  • We’re coming off of big wins this week in Davos, and it doesn’t look like the drama in the Senate is hurting the President.
  • There will also be a big ceremony for the passage of USMCA.
  • And just announced, we get a Middle East Peace Plan and Bibi is coming to the White House. Wait…….. WHUT? President Trump is going to solve Peace in the Middle East while Schiff is trying to impeach him?
  • Notice how President Trump just assumed Iran has rolled over, and Trump is moving on.
  • Soleimani isn’t even cold yet, and the ink on China Phase One has barely dried.

President Trump is suffocating the Dem Party, and he is “Takin’ Care of Business”.

All in all, things are looking pretty good.

**** Special thanks to MA_Kswiss who reported LIVE FROM DAVOS, Wolfie’s tremendous Shmpeachment thread, and Flep’s back up on the bi-lats! That was a fun week!

See you all at Wheatie’s Treehouse in the morning!

WTF!
BAN TRAVEL FROM CHINA PERIOD!! If you do come into the country FROM China you get to spend a week in quarantine. SHEESH, I ALWAYS quarantine new livestock that I bring onto my property.
How about some freaking COMMON SENSE!
We have the ability to skype so do that if you have to speake ‘face to face’ the commies are going to spy on you anyway.

singingsoul1

When I took in rescue animals cat or dog I quarantine them after the Vet looks them over to make sure they do not bring something into the house.

Gail Combs

It only makes good common sense. One of the ponies I bought came down with pneumonia the next day. Thank goodness I had him in quarantine!
He recovered very nicely but I did not need to have another 20 ponies to take care of and possibly my sheep and goats too.
Even my new kitty got quarantined and she came from my next door neighbor!

Deplorable Patriot

The laws of physics don’t exist in the Star Wars movies, so they might be suspended in China. You don’t know.

socaristobo

In a communist country everything works by fiat. I suppose if the laws of physics do not conform they will find themselves in a re-education camp until they do.

phoenixrising37

Well, they worked here in the good ol’ USA for eight years by FIAT… and far too many of his holdovers are working hard to see that it stays that way…

pgroup

There are types of concrete with a two hour ‘skin’ time (walk on) and an 8 hour harden time. First time I heard of it was a demonstration in Phoenix showing that a complete house can be built in one day if done by union workers.
It looked like one of those wall construction vids that show a week’s worth of work in three minutes while I was watching it in real time. Full disclosure: a construction worker friend of mine said he wouldn’t live in a house made with that concrete. Of course, China has no issue with minimal quality.

Cuppa Covfefe

IIRC, the faster the set time, with accelerants, etc., the weaker the finished product.
Judging from typical Chinese building/mfg practices, that won’t, erm, slow them down.
Still wonder about the new span of the Oakland-SF Bay Bridge. They’ve had LOTS of problems… I’ll bet in a quake, the new span is far less stable than the old (and not just because of the “self-supporting” design)…
Timing of this outbreak seems to be quite suspect, what with the “Phase I” agreement having just been signed. Some sort of underhanded “leverage” going on from the ChiComs???

para59r

Wonders if that should read as “… if not done by union workers”?

Rodney Short

Exactly, we run them union guys into the ground in Florida. With it being a right to work state things actually got done lol.
You wont see a union mason lay 1000 brick a day or 600-700 block a day.
200 block a day that’s what a union mason lays lol bunch of rookies

Teagan

Tents! Think of war zone hospitals with more permanent facilities under construction, if necessary. Probably more need for crematoriums if this rapid spread continues.

Rodney Short

Hot mud takes less time than normal concrete and oh how I pitty the concrete crew because that concrete will burn you quick like.
I fell backwards into hot mud while I was working an end on a 20ft screet board and it wasn’t a pretty site.
Having the back of your britches full of hot concrete at the beginning of a 270 yard pour really sucks. Blisters in less that 2 minutes.

patfrederick

reading the replies to that tweet…
many are praising China–an amazing effort–they’re an amazing people—blah, blah, blah…
others are suggesting that’s not really a “hospital” per se as much as a containment unit.
since this is a known virus/disease…surely they knew the incubation period. why didn’t China, at the FIRST sign of an outbreak, quarantine travel from China. I would rather a government err on the side of caution towards the rest of the world, then build a dozen hospitals after they allowed travel to continue to other countries.

Without Jamie Farr in a dress, I presume.

duchess01

YUP

ForGodandCountry

Disagree.
The whole reason this impeachment is happening is because dims shifted from Mueller SC (which failed) to Ukraine and the “unidentified witness” that dims refuse to bring forward.
In other words, dims are impeaching PDJT for alleged corruption involving Ukraine, so it is entirely appropriate to show REAL corruption in Ukraine vs. the unsupported allegations of a witness whom dims refuse to identify.

ladypenquin

I get what both you and Daughn are saying. Interesting – Andrew McCarthy actually notes that Schiff opened the door to this.
https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/01/trump-impeachment-trial-adam-schiff-opened-door-on-biden-witness-testimony/?amp
McCarthy speaks to the point you’re making FG&C.
“Schiff insists that Trump’s claims in this regard are false. But his mere say-so does not prove falsity, no more than his mere say-so proves that Trump wanted Ukraine to “make up dirt” on Biden. Figuring out who has the better of a factual dispute is what a trial is about. If a litigant does not want to create a dispute, it’s up to the litigant to steer clear of the issue.
Adam Schiff steered his case straight into the Bidens. The Trump team may have their political reasons for highlighting Biden’s involvement. But it was Schiff’s strategy that made the Bidens relevant. If one or both of them ends up in the witness box, they have Schiff to thank.”
Since the Dems – Schiff – are basing their charges against POTUS because supposedly he asked them to investigate Biden before he released aid to Ukraine, then POTUS has the right to prove that wasn’t the case.”
More at the link.
I agree with Daughn that it likely requires a massive, deep dive investigation – follow the money, and this impeachment sham isn’t the place for that – but it looks like bringing the Biden & son situation into the impeachment trial can’t be avoided, nor should it be if it means dismantling Schiffty, and the entire Ukraine Hoax.

ladypenquin

Not a quote, my words.
Since the Dems – Schiff – are basing their charges against POTUS because supposedly he asked them to investigate Biden before he released aid to Ukraine, then POTUS has the right to prove that wasn’t the case.

duchess01

Agree – the Senate is not the place – however – why wouldn’t the DOJ take up the investigation – did Giuliani waste the last two years looking into the corruption in Ukraine? All of that work for nothing?
Where does this belong if not in the DOJ?
Apparently, it belongs in Ukraine right now:
https://brutalproof.net/2019/10/time-to-prosecute-biden-for-corruption-crimes-against-humanity-in-ukraine/

duchess01

I understand from where you are coming – however – sometimes – these things are connected to an ongoing investigation – so we hear nothing for a while until the connection is made – and all doubt is removed –
This is a big spider web – the DS Swamp is broad and wide – any misstep could blow one case wide open and jeopardize other prosecutions – there is a reason for everything – why some smaller, insignificant information is passed over –
Notice how Giuliani talks – he only provides enough info to wet the whistle – and then – is quiet – he has more than we know about the corruption in Ukraine – I believe he sent his info to the DOJ – but, am not certain – it is not over until the fat lady sings – and she is still taking singing lessons – imho

Deplorable Patriot

That was one of this week’s points from Q. Durham shut down declassification and public release of information based on evidence needed to present to a Grand Jury. Whoever is prosecuting any one case can’t be too careful with that as public disclosure WILL taint jury pools.
There’s a reason some things only come out at trial. I learned that first hand while on a jury.

duchess01

Agree – learned that from serving on a jury as well – why grand juries are so secretive – those serving cannot even discuss with family members.

Deplorable Patriot

In my case, WHERE the whole thing happened is within walking distance of my house. I had to avoid an entire neighborhood I used to walk through all the time.
If that trial had happened today, I could not have been on the jury, actually. The prosecuting attorney moved back into our parish and is a lector. I talk to him all the time now.

duchess01

Hmmm…that is very interesting – what are the odds of that happening?

Deplorable Patriot

Arond here, pretty good.

duchess01

Oooooooh!!!

pgroup

Your comment reads like it was cut and pasted from OT.
Every ‘fact’ you stated has only the MSM for sourcing. For instance, why would Apple admit to providing private subscriber info to DoJ? The stock would crater, plus the twit storm would be a CAT 5. I’m more inclined to believe that Apple gave up the info on the condition that the feds lie about it.
Right now, I would refer you to the results of Brexit. UK is poised to be the number 2 economy in the world and the EU will be destroyed if they play hardball. DJT already told EU that if they taxed the big tech companies, he would tariff them an equal amount.
Big Tech OWES DJT bigly. He knows it, they know it, and we all should know it. From that tariff threat forward, all the SJW horseshit about Big Tech is kabuki theater. DJT owns them and he will cash his chips when it is most beneficial to the American people.
Have faith, my friend. The big guy’s got this.

Gail Combs

Also remember President Trump had one-on-one talks with the Big Tech presidents IIRC.

Deplorable Patriot

Thank you.

ladypenquin
duchess01

YAY!!! This is going to be great – CLASSIC!!!

kalbokalbs

NO witnesses at impeachment. Vote to flush it.
Bidens must be investigated by DOJ, OR SC appointed by AG Barr.
Senate, like the House is WORTHLESS at investigating anything. They fix nothing.

duchess01

I thought the Senate was there to listen to the ‘evidence’ from both sides – and vote for dismissal – acquittal – removal – I do not believe it is the job of the Senate to ‘fix’ anything – so I am not sure I understand what you are saying, Kal – please help.

kalbokalbs

Agree. Listen and vote. I poorly referred to Senate or House hearings where they both accomplish nothing positive or fix anything. The only thing good they can do with this impeachment is, flush it.

duchess01

I would be surprised if they do not – after all – there is no EVIDENCE!!! So far – this has been a Schiff Show – I hope he had a good time with his 15 minutes (uh, hours) of fame – because he added nothing worthy of consideration – just no doubt the man and his fellow travelers – are idiots!
Seems to me – even if they lose – they will be going back to the drawing board – to find another something or other with which to charge PT – when does this end, Kal?

ladypenquin

Apparently, tomorrow is our turn. 3 hrs which will be the equivalent of opening statements – likely telling Schiffy he doesn’t have “jack” and POTUS’ team will prove it.
Monday begins our presentation. While the Dems have spent 4 days repeating the same thing over and over again, insulting the Senate and the People at the same time, on Monday – our folks are going to be attack dogs with evidence.
You could almost see the spring in the step of Sekalow et al today. They’re laughing at the MSM…

duchess01

Cannot wait, lady – this is the part I am looking forward to watching – the former was just nonsense – however – from what little I have read – the two ‘head’ boys made royal fools of themselves.
It is payback time – FINALLY!!!

ForGodandCountry

Funny how this virus scare is really getting going….if you will….just as dims are finishing making their case and PDJT’s defense is up next.

ForGodandCountry

Yep.
And the left/globalists would LOVE to force the markets into a dive in this election year in order to take away a positive talking point from PDJT.

GA/FL

Create or fan a crisis – to use for leftist nefarious purposes…
– create panic > blame Trump,
– cause financial market chaos > sell short
– create pandemic > sell vaccines
It would be very easy to capture and spread an airborne contagious virus via drones or sprays.

Sadie Slays

After having watched the panic over SARs, bird flu, swine flu, and ebola in America, I’m taking this one with another dose of extreme skepticism. By next week, Alex Jones and the fringe parts alt-media will be spreading panic over mass vaccination theories. Calling it now.

ForGodandCountry

^^^This^^^

Gail Combs

“…..mass vaccination theories.”
I would like to explore that.
#1. We already have MANDATORY vaccination for school children. Day cares have to be government licensed. So a flu vaccination could be added easily for all children. (I remember standing in the gym to get the salk vaccine for polio — no choice.)
#2. Teachers, daycare providers, health practitioners, retirement homes, fire, police, transportation… Again gov’t regulated so it could be mandated.
#3. Food providers are regulated so again, restaurants, groc, fast food.. could have vaccination mandated.
#4. Large corporations especially those with large customer contact could require vaccination as part of continued employment. (Unions would probably agree.)
So no the government would not go house to house… wellllll maybe not*** But ‘they’ have ways to get most people vaccinated.
….
**Speaking of going house to house… Ask farmers about De-Population or Stamping out, aka killing all animals susceptible within a 10 kilometer radius.
Unfortunately I can not find my old notes but Walter has an amusing parody on using the procedure on DC politicians.
http://sugarmtnfarm.com/2010/07/29/fmd-in-our-capital/

Sadie Slays

I still remember back in 2009 when some websites were claiming that the Obama Administration was going to forcibly vaccinate the entire country for swine flu at any moment now and send all the people who refuse to the local FEMA camp. Meanwhile, you better stock up on that same website’s pandemic preparedness supplies RIGHT NOW before Obama sends his goons to your house!
Yeah, I’m sure there are government contingencies for forcible vaccinations in the same SHTF emergency “just in case” military plan folder along with the plans to invade Canada and survive a Yellowstone caldera eruption. But we’ve been here before several times with these pandemic panics, and I’ve yet to see anything convincing that this isn’t Swine Flu 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Gail Combs

“…the Obama Administration was going to forcibly vaccinate the entire country….”
That was certainly crap. It would at minimum take either Congress passing a law or a declaration of emergency nation wide.
Could it possibly happen? Maybe. but probably mot. (I haven’t checked the emergency laws.)
But there certainly are such laws:
https://www.cdc.gov/phlp/publications/topic/trainings/ph-emergencylaw.html
The problem is AIRPLANES. A new disease can get transported anywhere within a day so it is a heck of a lot harder to quarantine than it used to be.

Sadie Slays

Maybe they should shut down the Wuhan airport (assuming this pandemic isn’t a giant hoax).
https://flightaware.com/live/airport/ZHHH

Sadie Slays

An interesting theory I heard today is that China is using this as an excuse to hide their bad economy. Yes, shutting down everything over a pandemic caused the bad economy, and not the constant winning from the Trump Administration’s new trade policies. Funny how this all really blew up right after the big trade agreement was signed!

TheseTruths

Thanks for the report. There is a suspected case in Texas:
https://www.click2houston.com/news/local/2020/01/23/brazos-county-investigating-suspected-case-of-novel-coronavirus/
This article says, “14 Chinese cities with a combined population of around 33 million people are now off limits as the coronavirus infects over 800 people around the world. In the U.S., 10 possible cases in California, one in Texas and one in Tennessee are in isolation awaiting CDC test results.”
https://www.citizenfreepress.com/breaking/10-cases-of-wuhan-virus-now-in-california/
We will need confirmation, yea or nay. To me, the reports that it is “just” flu-like don’t comport with people “dropping like flies.” Also, if 20 have died, they were somewhat congregated in that one hospital that had corpses in the hallway? It doesn’t quite add up, to me.
[Dons tinfoil cap] I keep wondering who did this.

kea

Yeah it’s not adding up. Taking everything with a grain of salt.
Also does this play into the China phase 1 deal…? Oh we can’t follow the rules now because of an outbreak

pgroup

Despite the implication in your comment, I’m pretty sure there’s no such thing as a live corpse. Just saying.

This is simply an early demonstration on how Bernie & Co. (ie. Communists) would govern if elected.

GA/FL

Bernie – crazy and greedy.

Gail Combs

Actually that IS how Bernie made his money…

….Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) released a decade’s worth of tax returns on Monday, detailing millions in income—2.26 percent of which he donated to charity.
The documents show that over the years, Sanders’ income ranged from $205,617 to $1.1 million, while his charitable giving ranged from less than 1 percent to just over 4 percent depending on the year.
Last year, Sanders’ total income was $566, 421 and he donated $18,950 or 3.35 percent. In 2017, his income was $1.1 million and he gave away $36,300 or 3.15 percent. The year before that he also made more than $1 million but donated $10,600 or less than 1 percent.
His income peaked in 2016 and 2017 due to sales of his book, Our Revolution.
*https://www.thedailybeast.com/bernie-sanders-donated-226-to-charity-tax-returns-show

ForGodandCountry

From the hypocrisy bin:
Sometimes the most obvious questions never get asked, like this one.
If it was imperative to investigate PDJT as a candidate, a president-elect, and afterwards as President…
…as the left insists it was…
….then why ISN’T it imperative to investigate Joe Biden??

GA/FL

BINGO!!!

Deplorable Patriot

The same reason it was no imperative to investigate Obama, and the Clintons.

Yep. Wish I still had my “Tom Corbett, Space Cadet” lunchbox. I might still have one of his books (somewhere…..). I think he had a similar badge, as well. Notice that VSGPDJT said various branches of the military (leaders), designers, and others (probably would be a copyright lawyer or two amongst them, if not someone from the Roddenberrys and/or “rights holders”).
Going from a fantasy space opera to “the real deal” would probably make the latter two groups happy. And who gives a rip what the left thinks. Let them pound neutrons…

Unless…..it gets postponed for that *ahem* state funeral thing Q mentioned. I can see them doing something to delay the defense so MSM can put those spinning wheels in high gear for a few days. That, or Corona, seems made to order for the left’s benefit 😡

It is GUARANTEED the lamestream, lying, corrupt, dirty, manipulative media will come up with something to distract from the President’s defense.

BuzzFeed, the bottom Feeder has this headline:
‘QAnon Supporters And Anti-Vaxxers Are Spreading A Hoax That Bill Gates Created The Coronavirus’ but there are some interesting bits (Remember Canada gave China some Nasty viruses like Ebola to play with)
*https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ryanhatesthis/qanon-supporters-and-anti-vaxxers-are-spreading-a-hoax-that

….While the World Health Organization has so far stressed that this isn’t a global emergency, online rumors and lies have run fast… [GEE, let’s sit back and do nothing until it is TOO late and millions are dead….]
….
The crux of Sather’s conspiracy hinges on a 2015 patent filed by the Pirbright Institute in Surrey, England, which covers the development of a weakened form of a [avian] coronavirus that could potentially be used as a vaccine to prevent respiratory diseases in birds and other animals. [This is the same Pirbright that was responsible for the Foot and Mouth Disease fiasco that devastated the UK while the WTO was pushing National Animal ID so I really, really trust them….]
….
Paranoid social media users found Google search results that connect the Pirbright Institute to a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant to study livestock antibodies — and latched on to it….

So I think Sather’s isa bit warped but lets take a look at the information available.

We know the ChiComs are hand in glove with Biden & DiFi the China Spy at minimum so yeah, this is really, really suspect.
LOOK AT THE TIMING!
Democrats get to present THEIR case for three days….
Chines Virus sucks up all the Fake News time AND ATTENTION of viewers during the Republicans rebuttal.
Coincidink??? I do not think so…
Remember the Chinese have ZERO regard for human life and a major culling, given the loss of food via the African Swine flu + the Trump economic pressure + rebellion in Hong Kong + an aging population….
Yeah, I can see an epidemic might look ‘attractive’ if you already had a vaccine to protect Party Members.

msn newspowered by Microsoft News: Bill Gates ‘predicted’ Chinese coronavirus a year ago and warned it could kill over 30 million people

…..In 2018, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates gave an ominous warning that the next virus outbreak, like swine-flu, ebola, a bioterror attack or an unknown pathogen, could go global and result in the deaths of over 30 million.
What’s scarier, he produced a scientific simulation that showed that it was possible that these deaths could occur in just six months….
Speaking to delegates at an event hosted by the Massachusetts Medical Society in 2018, the billionaire business explained how in contrast to what people might see on TV or the movies, the frameworks many countries have in place to deal with diseases are sadly lacking.
‘In the real-world the health infrastructure we have for normal times breaks down very rapidly during major infectious disease outbreaks,’ he said.

27 Nov, 2017 South China Morning Post: Bill Gates given one of China’s highest academic honours — Microsoft chief elected to Chinese Academy of Engineering because of work to develop advanced nuclear technology

…Bill Gates, the tech billionaire who co-founded Microsoft, has been given one of China’s highest academic honours – an accolade which is mostly reserved for top scientists and engineers.
Gates was the only non-academic foreigner hand-picked by the Chinese Academy of Engineering for lifetime membership of the 815-member body…
The CAE – which falls under the State Council, China’s top governing body – also has a role advising Beijing on the country’s economic and social development, and its new members need to have “strict political clearance”.….

Deplorable Patriot

I was on such a high earlier. I’ve never been to the march in Washington, but I have done the walk here from the Cathedral Basilica to the only PP facility in the state that kills children in this way. Unfortunately, due to the cold, etc., and discretion being the better part of valor, I don’t do that anymore. Can’t sing if I’m sick.
This was such a boost, and outside of a couple channels on cable, and the conservative blogosphere, it just got ignored. Only Trump’s speech got any play. Not that it wasn’t a great one, but the organization it takes to pull off that event every year is truly grass roots. If that many people show up after hours on a bus, and peacefully demonstrate…this isn’t news? This isn’t a BIG, F$#@!*& deal?
I realize that this is one of the issues that divides one side from the other, and I guess if the left admitted that the pro-life community is this motivated to pull off a march of hundreds of thousands of people for decades running, they’d have to actually try to defend their indefensible positions, but it’s negligence on a level that even the MSM should be embarrassed about.

Volgarian8301

They bury their heads in the sand and pretend it didn’t happen if it doesn’t suit their narrative. I’m soooo proud of PDJT for doing this. From what little coverage I have seen it was huge!! And Nick Sandmann went right back to “the spot” to find that there were no angry, drum beating posers…good for him!!!

They CRUSHED it in 2014 with this one. I actually bought some Budweiser after I saw this ad, and I hate Budweiser (the actual beer).

You aren’t alone hating Bud. And I’ll tell you what, hang out in Soulard long enough, and you can tell when Bud is making its way through the brew house. PHEW! Talk about a blech smell.

This one was done before AA Busch, III, sold us all out. And, yeah, that’s what happened.

Merrimack NH had the Budweiser breeding farm. I used to love to watch the new foals.
https://nh1.com/nh1/budweiser-clydesdales-are-leaving-merrimack-for-missouri/
That puppy reminds me of the Golden at the barn I boarded my mare at. She would jump up and lick my horse on the nose as I got saddled up and then go with us trail riding every day.

Deplorable Patriot

There was more than one breeding farm. There’s still a hitch at the Brewery, mares and foals out at Grant’s Farm, and there’s another facility close by.
Seriously, these are the most pampered horses in the nation.

Deplorable Patriot

I’ll be honest. This was not one of my favorites. I’ve been watching A-B ads my whole life, and some of the guest lecturers we had in college were from the ad agencies that did some of the “this Bud’s for you” classics. This particular spot is not as good as the one, for example, where a barge broke loose on the river and had to be corralled, or the one about the calf that gets caught in a river current and cowboys rescues it. I mean, those spots grabbed you, like the ones with the Clydesdales which are conspicuous in their absence here.

ladypenquin

Good commercial, though I miss the Clydesdales.
If you look closely in the video is the amazing clip of the man who gave the shirtless old fellow on the train the shirt of his back. Went vial on the internet a few years ago. One of the most beautiful moments of humanity I’ve ever seen.

Volgarian8301

Yes, I love the Clydesdales, especially the kneeling ones. I posted it above

Never mind the lack of manliness of the models. At least I think those are men. I mean, they certainly don’t resemble women. Their clothes are what some women wear, though.

The fashion industry has for decades shoved women’s noses in the reality that they can produce a pile of manure and tell women everybody’s wearing it, and those women with the most money will pay anything to be the first to wear it.

TheseTruths

Perfectly stated. Some women won’t think for themselves, maybe because of peer pressure.
This is a chaos-creating, society-destroying agenda, to have men dressing as women, to promote the abnormal as desirable, and to promote the unattractive as something to aspire to.

Deplorable Patriot

Just remember that women go to the bathroom in packs.
I love elegant, becoming fashion. What is in those pictures does not qualify.

Yes, it is.

NOT THIS WOMAN!
I could never STAND the ‘fashion industry’ Nothing but a bunch of fairies who hate women. I ended up designing and making my prom dresses (high school and college) and my wedding dress.
They must be in seventh heaven now that they get to design ‘fashion’ for soy boys.

MAGA Mom

Here is how this Southern woman likes her man to dress….
Sharp wingtips and suit when needed but can wear his work boots and jeans (or Carhartt) or sharp jeans and button down for church…We like a man who can do business and yet work hard
That is what I like about this video – both styles!

Or just jeans and a t….the key is a gentleman, a man’s man in his heart and character, a hard worker whether in the city or the country, a man of God who can handle life

None of this males on the runway or a male who would wear such stuff could handle a real Southern woman…and we wouldn’t want ’em anyway. Cary Grant’s style or John Wayne’s style – either way or a combo of both but not Alan Alda or these “men”!
Who can forget Grant’s entrance in this movie? (7:50 mark) Wouldn’t be the same in one of those idiotic get ups!

OK…I am getting a little wild & I am starting to act like this is one of PHC’s parties! ha

“The FBI Scandal”

https://www.commentarymagazine.com/articles/the-fbi-scandal/
It’s a lengthy piece that goes over all the dirty crap the Cabal did re: “Crossfire Hurricane”…
…and justifies it all.
WE SHOULD BE EXPECTING THIS.
As the dirt starts to come out for real, the left will be working overtime to pretend it was all no big deal, that it was justified, that folks like Strzok and Page were just doing their jobs, etc, etc, etc, etc.
I encourage you to read this if only to see the ways in which the leftist media will acknowledge the truth without acknowledging the illegalities and crimes of the truth.

9:30PM 680WPTF news report:
First suspected case of the Wuhan Coronavirus in North Carolina: a person who traveled to Wuhan returned yesterday to the Raleigh-Durham International Airport showing symptoms of suspected Wuhan Coronavirus. The individual is now in an isolation unit at Duke University Hospital and is being tested by the CDC.

So if that person has the virus, he/she exposed everyone on the plane and many in the airports. And those people will expose others.
Officials are taking temperatures as people disembark at some airports, but they might not be showing symptoms yet. It seems almost impossible to contain.
I’m not panicking; just find it interesting.
