Dear KMAG: 20200802 Open Topic

For by grace you have been saved through faith,
and that not of yourselves; 
it is the gift of God, not of works,
lest anyone should boast.

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. Keep to the topic – avoid “you” and “your”. 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 Guidelines for posting and discussion , outlined here https://wqth.wordpress.com/2019/01/01/dear-maga-open-topic-20190101/

Let’s not give the Internet Censors a reason to shut down this intellectual 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.

And,


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.”


Amazing Grace

It’s All About God’s Grace . . . and our Gratitude.

Grace: The unmerited love and favor of God toward human beings.

Unmerited Love and Favor

(an incomplete listing)

Eons in the past –
God chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.

Two millennia ago –
The Word became flesh, and dwelt among us.
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us, paying the price for our sins.
God sent His Holy Spirit, our Helper-Advocate, at Pentecost.

Very recent past –
God draws us to Himself.
The Holy Spirit indwells us when we believe.
God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.

Now –
The Holy Spirit saves, fills, seals, and sanctifies believers through His power. The Holy Spirit reveals God’s thoughts, teaches, and guides believers into all truth, including knowledge of what is to come. The Holy Spirit also helps Christians in their weakness and intercedes for them.
The Lord will deliver us from every evil work and preserve us for His heavenly kingdom.
Through Jesus, in prayer, we can come openly, in complete trust, to God’s throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

And soon –
God will raise us up on the last day.
When Jesus comes again, we will be transformed to be like Him.
God will present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
God will prepare for us, things so wondrous that eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into our hearts, those things which He has prepared.

Some thoughts for us now –
Hebrews 4:12-16

We don’t walk alone, live alone, or face our troubles alone. Jesus is our Wonderful Counselor who assures us of His help.

Though we have sinned, we now can come openly, in complete trust, in prayer through Jesus, to God at His throne of grace. This is not our privilege gained through anything we have done. We have it solely because of Jesus. We can come to the presence of God at His throne of grace and be allowed to speak to Him, because Christ loved us and saved us. We come through the righteousness of Jesus, we come through His Name, and we come through His promises.

We are allowed to come before the Almighty God, Creator of the universe, not some earthly king, but the Creator of heaven and earth. We can come before Him right now, or any time day or night, and call upon Him confidently in prayer and He will give us the privilege to speak to Him.

In prayer we come before the throne of God. In prayer we come to the supreme Dignitary . . . and worship Him while we speak to Him.

It is because of God’s grace we come. We have no right of access or merit in ourselves, nor can any mortal obtain it for us. This blessing is freely and generously given to us as a gracious act of the God of grace.

His mercy and grace are provided to help us in our times of need. We need help when we get sick, when we lose a loved one, a job, a house, a friend, etc. We need His help in making decisions, in choosing our words, in living our daily lives. We need God’s help to overcome fear and uncertainty, and the constant changes of our lives.

We need God’s grace . . . always.


Amazing Grace

Amazing grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come,
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.

Well, if hard evidence of Klinton going to Epstein Island actually did drop Saturday, maybe it really was Shitstorm Saturday.
I have to apologize for being absent. I ran out of data on Thursday (will have it back next Thursday) and even had to shut the notifier off. I couldn’t like things, either, without the whole damn page trying to reload (and something on Page 1 was choking me). That’s what I get for downloading 1.8 GB of software–then discovering it was the WRONG VERSION and I had to download the right version, another 1.8 GB. One night, poof, a quarter of my monthly data!

cthulhu

Does anyone have public internet near you? Your plan sucks so bad it might be worth pulling into their parking lot for the 10 minutes it would take to download 1.8G.

Cuppa Covfefe

Especially if it were a far-left biz like Target, Starbucks, Chipotle, or something like that. Kind of a twofer…
(Then again, would probably have to download 4GB worth of VPN, firewall, AV and other protective software to protect from the leftard virii…)….

pgroup

There’s no hard evidence of anything involved with the Epstein case. Self-serving statements, hearsay, and various docs that do not directly relate to anything illegal.
I personally think this entire thing is a false flag intended to get mass attention focused away from something else.

TheseTruths

According to the legal definition of “evidence,” quite a bit of it has been presented. To discount all of that, you would have to believe that numerous underage girls who had no other connections were brought together on the island and at other estates of Epstein’s (there are photos) and were told what to say in a conspiracy to take down Epstein and Ghislaine and that, despite being reviled themselves, and at risk to themselves, not one of them has changed her story over many years. You would have to believe that someone was coercing and/or paying them to say the things they have been saying and that the photo evidence was doctored or that the underage girls were planted in those locations, which itself seems it would be illegal.
You would have to believe that underage girls were told to lie, some under oath, about Ghislaine recruiting them and about all the things Epstein and Maxwell did, and that those girls would stick to their false stories despite massive pressure from Epstein’s defense, over many years, as they matured into adults.
Epstein “in 2008 pleaded guilty to a felony charge of solicitation of prostitution involving a minor.” Evidence doesn’t get much stronger than that.
https://www.wsj.com/articles/SB10001424052748703386704576186150687026850
__________
evidence
n. every type of proof legally presented at trial (allowed by the judge) which is intended to convince the judge and/or jury of alleged facts material to the case. It can include oral testimony of witnesses, including experts on technical matters, documents, public records, objects, photographs and depositions (testimony under oath taken before trial). It also includes so-called “circumstantial evidence” which is intended to create belief by showing surrounding circumstances which logically lead to a conclusion of fact. Comments and arguments by the attorneys, statements by the judge and answers to questions which the judge has ruled objectionable are not evidence. Charts, maps and models which are used to demonstrate or explain matters are not evidence themselves, but testimony based upon such items and marks on such material may be evidence. Evidence must survive objections of opposing attorneys that it is irrelevant, immaterial or violates rules against “hearsay” (statements by a party not in court), and/or other technicalities.

Agreed.
Defending the indefensible (read: Weinstein and Epstein and the Klintoons) is an exercise in fultility at best, and misdirection at worst. Punkt.

Sorry, Steve, if it was my multiple failed attempts at putting up the Swiss Doctor’s COVID analysis and treatment infos… wurstpress seemed to choke on the infos even though I’d excised all of the links, etc.

They say that raising up a puppy can be very simple and formulaic. When they make a mess, you speak harshly to them — that way, they know they are in trouble. You grab them and force their noses into the mess — that way, they know what they are in trouble for. Then you swat them in a way that is embarrassing, loud, and painful…..though not harmful — that way, they know that this trouble has consequences.
K-Mac has the first two down to a science with the White House Press Corps. I suggest, for the third, that they install a remote-controlled compressed-air tennis ball bazooka for every press conference. After K-Mac administers one and two, the newly educated presstitute can be shot with a tennis-ball — preferably color-coordinated with K-Mac’s outfit that day, emblazoned with “K-MAC” on one side and with a golden cross on the other. As a further memory aid, the media drone could keep the ball.
I think the official recorded footage for every press conference would thoroughly benefit from the occasional “FWOK!!! Owwww!”, and the occasional one where Acosta gets shot every thirty seconds for five solid minutes could probably be sold on DVD.

Ok, shut it down. We have a winner.
This is such a great idea DJT should start talking/tweeting about it as if it’s on its way. The curs would go apeshit.

A late post from Duchess on yesterday’s daily thread:

The “Sound of Freedom” starring Jim Caviezel and Mira Sorvino. The Sound of Freedom is a full-length feature film based on the true story of Tim Ballard and Operation Underground Railroad. The film opens with Tim as a government Special Agent whose investigation leads him to the darkest places of Colombia and forces him to choose between keeping his job and family safe, or risking it all to rescue children he has never met. Watch as Tim and the beginnings of his new team, who will one day call themselves Operation Underground Railroad, infiltrate the most dangerous child trafficking organization in Colombia to rescue over 100 kidnapped children.

TheseTruths

Do you know where it will be shown or how we can see it?

I have literally NO infos on it other than, holy cow this trailer was posted just 24 hours ago and only have 14 views.

scott467

It has 44,000 views here:

But I saw this trailer (posted here I think) weeks ago, maybe a month or more. The link above shows it was posted July 30, but I’m sure I’ve seen that trailer before.

New Nonna, Again!!! 🤗

I’m so sorry, Michael. The arbitrary ‘rules’ within the various states are cause for justifying rebellious attitudes towards those rules.
And limiting funerals is a heartbreaking ‘rule’ that infuriated many of us.
May the government soon concern themselves with protecting our Rights instead of dictating how we should live.
‘Masks don’t work’ heard by all in March, ‘masks work’ hard by all in June and July. I’m sorry, I’m sick of it.
Please accept my deepest sympathy for what your family must be going through. I’m truly so sorry. 🙏🏼😢

cthulhu

I believe that our michael is fine. He is bringing us the report of “brink”, who is not on our tree, who has — even in his pain — testified to the hypocrisy of our “leaders”.

New Nonna, Again!!! 🤗

O, ok. Either way, my heart aches for the arbitrary ‘rules’ being foistered upon us. And the falling for it all by some who are scared, or just compliant by nature. Just wrong!

TheseTruths

That is sad and maddening at the same time. I’ve known several people whose loved ones in assisted living did not thrive and died while only being able to see their family at the end. This is trragic and unnecessary. We do not have an ebola outbreak with people bleeding contagion from all orifices. I’m at the point where I want people to pay, big time.

ladypenquin

What’s being overlooked are the remaining family members we have who are horribly socially isolated within their long-term facilities. Almost no social interactions are allowed, nor going anywhere except a medical visit. Isolation and depression are taking their toll.

Sadie Slays

A few days ago, the Vice President’s motorcade was involved in not one, but TWO accidents in the same day. I finally looked into the details of it and found this:comment image
Out of all the roads this accident could have occurred on, OF COURSE it’s the road named after an assassinated President. Sounds very much like someone was sending a message to our VP here. And there’s this:comment image
Remember when they tried to assassinate our Republican Congress with a train derailment? They used a dump truck for that, too.

Sadie Slays

I just realized that the accident on Lincoln Way happened “shortly before 11:30.” 11/3 is Election Day. I know that part is a stretch but I can’t ignore it.

Linda

Yeah, that whole thing was EXTREMELY suspicious. I’m giving it the stink eye, too, Sadie.

michaelh

Good insights. Definitely keep alert. We have been warned that Pence is sadly a target.
Hopefully you are wrong 😉

Deplorable Patriot

If Pence is a target it will be because he failed in whatever mission he had. Think McMaster. If I were Pence, of whom I really am not a fan, I would move Heaven and earth to have my family under private security 24/7.

wheatietoo

If [They] take out Pence…then who is the 2nd in line for the presidency?
Nancy Pelosi?
I know it’s not supposed to work like that — but [They] may be thinking that they can make it work like that.
When Agnew resigned, Nixon appointed Ford as the new VP.
Then Ford had to be approved by both houses of congress.
But the Dems have already proven that they will throw all the rules out when they want to.
They impeached Pres Trump on bogus, manufactured charges…that weren’t even an ‘impeachable offense’!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Agreed – the Dems and their Chinese allies are desperate.

TheseTruths

According to this article, the VP slot doesn’t have to be filled immediately. LBJ, for example, did not have a VP after he became president after the assassination of JFK until the next election a year later (Hubert Humphrey). https://people.howstuffworks.com/us-vice-presidential-vacancy-is-filled.htm
Section 2 of the 25th Amendment:
“Whenever there is a vacancy in the office of the Vice President, the President shall nominate a Vice President who shall take office upon confirmation by a majority vote of both Houses of Congress.”
The part I bolded is the rub. Pelosi has talked about the line of succession lately. If there were no VP, she would be second in line. And I don’t think the House would approve any VP Pres. Trump would nominate before the election. Sad to say, I do not put murder past some of the Dems and the powers behind them. I think they want a situation where the election is not decided on election day so Congress would appoint a temporary officeholder in the presidency.
_______________
https://constitutioncenter.org/blog/does-the-constitution-allow-for-a-delayed-presidential-election
Absent a clear winner of the presidential election on January 20, the Speaker of the House would serve as Acting President under the current succession law. The 20th Amendment requires that the duly elected president and vice president assume their positions at some point. “Congress may by law provide for the case wherein neither a President elect nor a Vice President shall have qualified, declaring who shall then act as President, or the manner in which one who is to act shall be selected, and such person shall act accordingly until a President or Vice President shall have qualified.”
_______________
Dems will lie, cheat, and worse to get a Dem in power after November. I’m sure they have a long list of contingency plans.

Sadie Slays

The latest theory going around is that they’re going to cause a Constitutional crisis regarding the Election and force Congress or Supreme Court (with turncoat Roberts) to choose the President. At this point, I wouldn’t put it past them to try something that insane. They’ve managed to get away with this much so far.

patfrederick

then they really WILL get the civil war they are pushing.

And there will not be a greasy spot left of any leftists in this country. The silent majority has a great deal of cold and hot anger stored up.
We know the evil. We are standing down while God handles.

grandmaintexas

You would not be able to find a single Democrat in my area…they would’ve immediately become Republicans overnight.

Cuppa Covfefe

IIRC, it used to be the Secretary of State who was the third in line, after the VP. That was changed in the middle of the last century. Have to wonder why…
As usual, we have to PRAY!!! (Ephesians 6:10-18). GOD will not let HIS WORD return void…

Anyway, clicking around…other countries using hcq and other meds that US isn’t. frustrating

I keep thinking about how good the NSA’s COINT and COPROP campaigns are after ISIS when they effectively demolished the ISIS recruiting networks in social media, and set up their own COPROP to undermine ISIS. Then the same thing against BLM and Antifi. You know if they ever try to execute a massive COPROP campaign in the United States to recruit American people to be engaged in the political process, wow that’ll really be something.
On the teacher union front, of course they want kids at home and not in classes, but they want teachers paid anyway. Ridiculous? What if it were actually nefarious? We know this BS about safety isn’t about the kids – it’s about the “teachers”. But what are the teachers going to be doing at home? You know they aren’t preparing lesson plans.
Well a preview came when several of the Antifi activists who were arrested were actually Seattle teachers who were off work due to COVID. Wow, dang, I’m sure that’s TOTALLY just a coincidence. Well, only the most radical teachers will be crossing state lines to blow up courthouses I’m sure. What will the rest do? Well let’s see, the conservative teachers will probably do what they normally do – find productive ways to use their time. But the leftist ones? Well a bunch of them will suddenly have lots of time on their hands to volunteer for the Biden campaign. Dang, isn’t that convenient?
What else will they be doing? They’ll also have a nearly inexhaustible amount of free time on their hands to spend on social media promoting Biden and trolling conservatives and engaging in spreading lies against Trump and Trump supporters, and HCQ and anything else that comes up. It’s almost like they have an army of liberal NPC soldiers. It was really quite stunning to think about. It made me wonder, I dunno, how would you counter an army of liberal nitwits on social media during a Presidential campaign, especially when they are using their “teacher” credentials to give them extra respect and status in all the forums? Well dang, you know, you’d almost need your own friggin army of digital soldiers who are highly informed, highly agile, and aggressively motivated to, well, counter all the fake news that gets posted. But how could you recruit a social media army before a major U.S. election? You’d have to start early, that’s for sure.

Evidence based science died decades ago.
From my collection on scientific fraud:
1980: BAFFLEGAB PAYS

Unintelligible Management Research and Academic Prestige
Reprinted with permission from Interfaces, Vol. 10, No. 2, April 1980, p. 80-86.
J. Scott Armstrong
The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19104
ABSTRACT. Modest support was found for the “Dr. Fox Phenomenon”: Management scientists gain prestige by unintelligible writing. A positive correlation (+0.7) was found between the prestige of 10 management journals and their “fog indices” (reading difficulty). Furthermore, 32 faculty members were asked to rate the prestige of four passages from management journals. The content of the passages was held constant while readability was varied. Those passages that were more difficult to read were rated higher in research competence.

CORRUPTION IS DESTROYING BASIC SCIENCE
Editors In Chief of World’s Most Prestigious Medical Journals: “Much of the Scientific Literature, Perhaps HALF, May Simply Be Untrue” … “It Is Simply No Longer Possible To Believe Much of the Clinical Research That Is Published”

Posted on June 1, 2015 by WashingtonsBlog
Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine are the two most prestigious medical journals in the world.
It is therefore striking that their chief editors have both publicly written that corruption is undermining science.

The editor in chief of Lancet, Richard Horton, wrote last month:
*http://www.thelancet.com/pdfs/journals/lancet/PIIS0140-6736(15)60696-1.pdf
Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”. The Academy of Medical Sciences, Medical Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council have now put their reputational weight behind an investigation into these questionable research practices. The apparent endemicity [i.e. pervasiveness within the scientific culture] of bad research behaviour is alarming. In their quest for telling a compelling story, scientists too often sculpt data to fit their preferred theory of the world. Or they retrofit hypotheses to fit their data. Journal editors deserve their fair share of criticism too. We aid and abet the worst behaviours. Our acquiescence to the impact factor fuels an unhealthy competition to win a place in a select few journals. Our love of “significance” pollutes the literature with many a statistical fairy-tale. We reject important confirmations. Journals are not the only miscreants. Universities are in a perpetual struggle for money and talent, endpoints that foster reductive metrics, such as high-impact publication. National assessment procedures, such as the Research Excellence Framework, incentivise bad practices. And individual scientists, including their most senior leaders, do little to alter a research culture that occasionally veers close to misconduct.
***
Part of the problem is that no-one is incentivised to be right.
Similarly, the editor in chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Marcia Angell, wrote in 2009: *http://www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/2009/jan/15/drug-companies-doctorsa-story-of-corruption/
It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.
In her must-read essay, Dr. Angell skewers drug companies, university medical departments, and medical groups which set the criteria for diagnosis and treatment as being rotten with corruption and conflicts of interest.
And we’ve previously documented that the government sometimes uses raw power to cover up corruption in the medical and scientific fields. *http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/07/fda-gathers-personal-information-then-smears-whistleblowers-on-faulty-medical-devices.html
Postscript: Corruption is not limited to the medical or scientific fields. Instead, corruption has become systemic throughout every profession … and is so pervasive that it is destroying the very fabric of America. *http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2015/05/the-main-problem-in-america-corruption.html

It’s been a cash cow for Big Pharma, too.

I tend to use Romans 1 as my starting point. It specifically states that the perversions created/caused the penalty so I assume (only safe if you’re doing it from something God says) that AIDS/HIV is not lab created. It spreads via perversion (homosexual behavior; promiscuous behavior; etc.) and the only true prophylactic is to refuse to do those behaviors.
In any event, no matter how much money is wasted doing ‘AIDS research’ there will not be a cure until man cures his sin problem via being born again. Only then can the plague be ‘aborted’. I suspect that the Words of Christ in Matthew 24 plus Romans 1 = not likely that sufficient numbers will turn to Christ and away from sin.

Dozens of employees come forward alleging sexual misconduct on The Ellen Show
Just hours after Ellen’s apology letter, her show has been hit with a slew of sexual misconduct allegations as dozens of employees come forward.

Dozens of employees of The Ellen DeGeneres Show have come forward in a new bombshell report, alleging sexual harassment and misconduct by some of the show’s top executive producers.
Many of the allegations centre upon head writer and executive producer Keith Leman, who has been accused of groping and propositioning male staff members.
Others allege they were inappropriately touched by producer Ed Glavin, who is reportedly parting ways with The Ellen Show.

Back in the day, «smart» was pretty much a synonym for «clever». British usage of the word also includes description of the wearing of clothes that look good and are appropriate for the occasion.
But in the past decade or so, there has been a lot of talk about «smart» appliances, locks, light-fixtures, power meters, etc.; and common to all of these is that yes, there are clever bits inside, which depend on the goodwill of some company to keep the «smarts» functioning right, or even, as with the power meters that there are benefits to the power company, and not so much to whoever pays the power bill every month. The goodwill of the other devices may also depend on payment, or at least the willingness of the manufacturer to maintain support and infrastructure for them for decades.
«The word, “smart”, is usually associated with something that is good.»
But good for whom? Short and long term? That is a very open question.

AND if Politico is correct and they can make the election drag on as undecided due to vote counting until AFTER January 2020, then they get to install JOE BIDEN! OR EVEN HILARY CLINTON.
This by the way is WHY all the rhetoric about President Trump REFUSING to leave the White House and needing to be dragged out. THIS IS THE REAL REASON BEHIND VOTE BY MAIL!!!
Postpone the Election? That Could Mean President Biden
By RICHARD PRIMUS
07/31/2020 03:55
Richard Primus is the Theodore J. St. Antoine Professor of Law at the University of Michigan Law School and a former clerk for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Follow him on Twitter @Richard_Primus.

…In the absence of an election by January, Trump’s time as president will end on January 20, 2021. Article II of the Constitution provides that a president is elected to serve a four-year term, and Trump’s four years will be up on that date. Without a new electoral mandate, he’s out.
Who, then, steps into the Oval Office if no election has been held, and the states don’t fill the gap with their own electors? Not Vice President Mike Pence; his term also expires on January 20. So the presidency and vice-presidency would both be vacant.
Now things get weird. By statute, the person next in line for the presidency is the speaker of the House. But in a world with no election, the speakership would be just as vacant as the vice presidency. Just as Trump’s term will end on January 20, the current term of every member of the House of Representatives will end on January 3. The House of Representatives would have no members and couldn’t elect a speaker.
Who’s next? The answer, by statute, is the president pro tempore of the Senate. That office would not be vacant. Only 35 Senate seats are up for election in November; the other 65 Senators are now serving terms that extend beyond 2021. So even without an election, there would still be a Senate, though it would have only 65 members.
The next critical question, of course, is who that president pro tempore would be. By Senate practice stretching back to the 19th century, the most senior member of the majority party is selected as president pro tem. Today, it’s Iowa’s Chuck Grassley. If there is no election this fall, however, Grassley would no longer be in the majority party. Of the 65 Senators whose terms continue past 2021, and who would therefore compose the Senate after January 3 in the absence of a new election, 35 are Democrats.
So, by default, the Democrats would control the Senate. To be clear, exactly 18 Democrats could control the Senate, since they’d make up a voting majority of the caucus.
By the usual rules—most senior member of the majority party—the president pro tem, and thus the president of the United States, would be Vermont’s Pat Leahy.
But the pro tem process isn’t a law. It’s just a tradition. And in a world this bizarre, where there’s no election, no president and no House, there’s no reason to assume the Senate Democrats would follow tradition. Legally, they can pick whomever they like. ….

GA/FL

The President CAN AND MUST postpone the election until all the states have implemented honest legitimate election process/procedures and those procedures have been approved by the Department of Justice or an Emergency Election Standards Committee that he appoints!!!

Gail Combs

Thant reasoning in the Politico article is what the Left will use to CONVINCE people the CONSTITUTION and US Law REQUIRES they drag President Trump out of the White House on January 20th 2021.
It does not matter what the real situation is that is how the Communists over throw existing governments.
William R. Russell was in Russia soon after the Bolsheviks seized power and spent considerable time there, working on Creel propaganda against the Germans, for the Bolsheviks, and later against the Bolsheviks. Russell described how he saw the communist tradecraft:

The way they worked their way to the seizure of power was as follows: Talk about peace, talk about social equality, especially among those most oppressed. Talk about organization of labor, and penetrate into every labor union. Talk on soapboxes. Publish pamphlets and papers. Orate and harangue. Play on envy. Arouse jealousy. Separate class from class. Try to break down the democratic processes from within. Accustom the people to picketing, strikes, mass meetings. Constantly attack the leaders in every way possible so that the people will lose confidence. Then in time of national peril, during a war, on the occasion of a great disaster, or of a general strike, walk into the capital and seize the power. A well-organized minority can work wonders.

“… This is another strange situation, DNI Coats was one of the people we suspected of being Deep State but, because he appeared to be in a trusted position, many of us tried to reason he must be a white hat.
20. But, the aggression between Coats and Trump became highly visible and his departure of from the IC was inevitable. What shocked most of us was to see vice president Mike Pence literally beg Coats to stay at his post. You must take a step back and ask yourself, why?
21. Q gave us the information on what Coats was doing. He was blocking the declassification of documents and evidence that was being requested by GOP investigators from the Senate. Those committees in the Senate were working to uncover and expose the ObamaGate scandal.
22. Dan Coats refusal to release and or declassify the materials they requested posed a significant time delay and stall to the Senate investigatory committees. Knowing that, why in God’s name would Mike Pence beg Coats to stay in his position?”

On the subject of ‘Things that are making us sick.’
Fluoride
Fluoride hardens the enamel of our teeth.
When I was a kid, we would go to the dentist twice a year for a ‘fluoride treatment’ to prevent cavities.
The dental hygienist would squirt this grape-flavored purple gel into a curved bite-shaped thing…and we would have to keep it on our teeth for several minutes.
Both the dentist and the hygienist would tell us…”Don’t swallow it!”
“Spit it all out.”
Some years ago, when both my parents developed arthritis…I started researching what could be ’causes’ of arthritis.
It’s not something that has been in our family tree — on either side.
I ran across some articles on ‘Fluoride Causes Arthritis’.
So I read more.
I didn’t save any of that…but there are other articles out there now:
http://fluoridealert.org/studies/arthritis03/
http://www.fluoridealert.org/wp-content/uploads/ge_figure_updated.jpg
I know one thing…I started getting some twinges in my own joints, so I stopped drinking fluoridated tap water.
Switched to Distilled Water.
And my joints are okay now.
[*pauses to knock on wood*]
There are those who say that Fluoride in our water causes other health problems too.comment image
.
I highly recommend switching to Distilled Water.
It’s cheap.
Most grocery stores have gallon jugs of it.
Water Filters don’t take out Fluoride.
The fluoride molecules are small enough to go right through the filters.
Nothing survives the distillation process.

Good spring water is amazing.
Distiilled is also devoid of minerals and will leach them out of your body. Which is helpful at first, but Dr. Jensen (IIRC, or was it Pauling?) warned to not use it for too long due to loss of trace minerals.

So, there’s a bunch of stories to tell…..but I’ll try to Readers’ Digest them.
Yosemite, the famous National Park in California, is essentially the valleys of the Merced and Tuolumne Rivers. All the famous views are of the Yosemite Valley off the Merced River…..because the Hetch Hetchy Valley of the Tuolumne was dammed and flooded in 1923 to provide drinking water for San Francisco. Many had commented that both valleys were equally beautiful and scenic.
Hetch Hetchy water, as delivered along “The Peninsula” from San Francisco south, was consistently rated as some of the best tap water in the United States. Crisp, pure, natural snowmelt from a National Park that kept it from being tainted. Because the pipes that delivered this water had to flow across various cities, there were agreements that the cities could tap into it. When we bought our house in Santa Clara, our tapwater came from Hetch Hetchy. The agreements had to be renewed every 20 years or so, but this was on autopilot.
During the fiasco that gave our small city of 110,000 souls an NFL stadium that would never advertise our city (but would screw up our traffic), a corrupt mayor and various other corrupt officials were installed by “big money” from San Francisco. In between stiffing every man, woman, child, and squalling babe-in-arms with $4,000 debt for the white elephant of a stadium (….to be entirely financed by fruit-flavored unicorn farts, with residents only guarantors…..), the same corrupt individuals “forgot” to renew the city’s Hetch Hetchy claim — just before they abruptly resigned and left town. So, now we drink well-water contaminated by 50 years of Intel — or, I should say, we shower with it, because we no longer drink water from the tap.
As a further anecdote, there used to be a mineral water plant in Menlo Park that was well known, worldwide, for quality production. The funny thing was…..it was entirely synthetic. It involved filtering Hetch Hetchy tap water multiple times for multiple things, including through activated charcoal…..then carefully adding back selected minerals. Where other mineral waters from springs would claim certain amounts of calcium carbonate from the spring, Calso Mineral Water had a certain amount of calcium carbonate in a 55-gallon drum that they’d add until it met specifications. I used to drink it, back when I lived in southern California. Roger Moore consumed it constantly when he was James Bond. It was actually good. But you can well imagine how everything about it has been systematically erased. Few traces now exist.
Tree-huggers have periodically suggested destruction of the O’Shaughnessy Dam at Hetch Hetchy. I’d laugh so hard. San Francisco is surrounded on three sides by salt water. They’d be so screwed.

Cuppa Covfefe

The East Bay gets Hetch-Hetchy water too… e.g. Fremont, Newark, Union City, Haywired 🙂 etc…
I have to say, there are some of us who wouldn’t mind it if SF were surrounded on four sides by salt water… 🙂
The “Water Wars” have been an interesting (and contentious) part of the history of Kalifornistan, indeed the entire west for quite some time. All the more interesting because that area (“Aztlan” to some nutcakes) is historically a desert, or close to that…
And yet NewScum wants even more “immigrants”…..

cthulhu

Yeah, I did the purple fluoride teeth trays back when — permanently turned my teeth grey.
Distilled water is only good if you are doing significant broad-spectrum mineral/electrolyte dosing, because otherwise your body will be leaching out any minerals/electrolytes you don’t eat. This can lead to weird symptoms that may be difficult to diagnose by your local medical team. As an example, hard water is generally due to magnesium or calcium in carbonates, bicarbonates, and sulfates. If you cease drinking the local hard water and subsequently develop a magnesium deficiency from your body’s leaching magnesium into your drinking water and eliminating…….none of the local physicians will recognize this for a painfully long time.
If you had a totally custom-designed healthcare system that could roll with that, this wouldn’t be a problem — but the sad fact is that you should behave as the locals do so that your afflictions are what locals get and your doctors will recognize them as common.

We also bought a filter for our shower head but it didn’t fiilter flouride … just the basics. Many filters don’t filter flouride.

Yet another reason to shy away from it!
Pharmaceutical companies demand an exemption from Liability in exchange for mass-producing large quantities of inexpensive vaccines.
The ‘exemptions’ started out decades ago.
It was done innocently enough, to encourage drug makers to mass-produce cheap vaccines that they would not make much money on.
Back then…no one dreamed that the drug makers would load things into vaccines that had nothing to do with the purpose of the vaccine.
Not harmful things that are a part of nefarious goals.
But the ‘exemption’ was something that the globalist ghouls couldn’t resist abusing.
It plays right into their evil plans.

The Media’s Political Suicide
Daniel Greenfield – August 02, 2020
Sultan Knish Blog
http://www.danielgreenfield.org/2020/08/the-medias-political-suicide.htmlcomment image
.
…………..From the article: [emphasis mine]
McClatchy had bought Knight Ridder for $4.4 billion to create the second largest news company. After going into Chapter 11 bankruptcy, McClatchy was won in an auction by a hedge fund, which also owns the National Enquirer, in a secret bidding which started with $30 million cash and $270 million in debt. […]
Earlier this year, Warren Buffett had dumped 30 newspapers that he had bought for $344 million for $140 million. The Newseum, a $450 million media museum, backed by Gannett, was sold off last year.
Gannett, the biggest newspaper chain in the country, lost $80 million in the first quarter of the year even after a merger in which it slashed jobs at some of the hundreds of newspapers which it controls.
Over 20,000 media jobs have been wiped out in the previous two years and it’s just getting started.
[…] … local papers will go on bleeding older and more conservative readers while the hedge funds that own them slash jobs, eliminate entire papers, and eventually give up on the whole media venture as a bad idea.
Warren Buffett did.
Local papers are dying. Formerly influential national news magazines are irrelevant. When was the last time you heard anything from Time except around its annual Cause of the Year publicity stunt?
And it’s not just the dead tree media that’s in trouble. Digital darlings like the Huffington Post, Vice and Vox have been cutting jobs because clickbait doesn’t win over subscribers who will pay for content. Network television and cable news are on their last legs as cable subscribers cut the cord and content providers set up their own Netflix rivals. What happens to NBC News or CNN in a marketplace defined by Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Peacock, HBO Max, CBS All Access, and whatever other platforms will pop up?
The media hasn’t had a viable business model in a long while. It’s a zombie that kills even as it dies.
What we think of as the media, a series of private companies reporting the news to customers willing to pay for their services, is evolving into a political movement that views its platforms as a public service.
The for-profit media is still around, but not for long.
[…]
The media has redefined journalism as advocating for left-wing policies and the advantage of this is that in the age of the internet, political activism has a better business model than journalism.
Less money is being spent on advertising and subscriptions, but the cost of elections is soaring.
In the recent past, journalists had to choose between working in the legitimate media or doing opposition research for dark organizations like Fusion GPS. […]
…Media publications no longer serve a community, but a narrative, and constantly swapping out publication names helps make the narrative seem fresh.
The end result is State News, a product that closely resembles the government news networks in China or Russia, but which is still distributed across a variety of organizations and which is controlled by social media narratives coordinated across social networks rather than by a central government agency.
[…]
Hardly anyone bothered reading Soviet papers because everyone already knew what was in them.
A media that exists to tweet articles about Trump’s terribleness and a story about an oppressed person whose plight proves the need to have open borders, no police, and free everything is unreadable. Not just to conservatives, but to everyone who isn’t looking for a righteousness or rage fix in the morning.
The media envisions its own transformation into public service non-profits subsidized by dot com tycoons and then eventually the benevolent socialist state that will pay its members to put out propaganda that nobody reads. […]
The media has been killing cities and the country to buy a little more time for its existence. But it is becoming a zombie that is killing the basis for its own existence and then the very thing that it does.
The members of the media began by killing their ethics and morals. They tossed away the truth as a value and a goal. They turned on their colleagues, incited mobs, celebrated violence and terror. And then they set out to destroy the organizations they worked for and the country that they live in.

Sorry for posting so much of this…but it is such a hard-hitting article on the state of the Enemedia, that it was difficult to decide which parts to not post.
Greenfield goes into a lot of details on what has happened with the major players.
It’s worth a full read, if you’re interested.

Not too surprising when one considers that our schools are producing students who can’t read, and have produced many students who can’t write, i.e. putting even as few as two words together in the correct order is a challenge…
Twitter and the entire instant-messaging spectrum are also guilty…
As are Hollyweird and the YSM/MCM…
To paraphrase Marshall McLuhan, “The tedium is the message”…

interesting. OT is having difficulties of late…they are being spammed hard and many regulars are finding themselves in the bin.
just mentioning it in case it happens here…you know it’s just not this site…or maybe SD is getting close and his site is a target.

pgroup

Maybe they dumped screening.

Weren’t they having trouble with posts coming from (via) a particular email provider (i.e. one logs on with an email address and a handle in order to post, and everything goes pear-shaped from there on…) ?

And the thought just occurred to me…
The Dems say they want to “Abolish the Police”.
But maybe what they really mean, is…abolish the Police as we know it.
And replace it with their ‘enforcers’ to enforce their groupthink and punish anyone who stands up to them.
Most of our LEO’s are good guys.
They wouldn’t like being ordered to arrest people for resisting tyrannical commie policies.

patfrederick

i think you’re absolutely right–think muslim community police–not no policing–only policing done by OUR appointees…

Gail Combs

“…a ‘community-led public safety system.’…”
Sounds so ‘fluffy and unicorn and rainbows’ doesn’t it?
It is NOT!

…Minnesota State Rep. Steve Green this week warned that domestic terrorists Antifa and Muslim groups plan to “police Minneapolis under Muslim rule.”
…As Gateway Pundit has clearly stated many times, by “defund the police,” the left means replacing the police with Sharia patrol, Black Panthers, La Raza and other anti-Christian, anti-white social justice enforcers… [In other words BROWNSHIRTS.]
…Rep. Steve Green said, “What you’re looking at, in my humble opinion, is communism moving into Minneapolis and St. Paul.” Not just Communism, Green referred to the unholy alliance with the Left and Islam….
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/06/minnesota-state-rep-warns-antifa-muslim-groups-plan-police-minneapolis-muslim-rule/

The article goes on quoting “Robert Spencer took a deeper dive in a Frontpage Mag article:”

f members of the local community end up policing Minneapolis, what might that look like?
Back in 2016, a series of Minneapolis Muslims in man-on-the-street interviews stated matter-of-factly that they preferred Islamic law over American law. [So GO THE F..K HOME!] We have seen Sharia patrols in Germany, Britain, and even New York City, where the Muslim Community Patrol (MCP) is decked out in uniforms that strong resemble New York Police Department uniforms, and drives cars carefully designed to look like NYPD cars, to enforce “fundamentals of the Sharia.”
Muslim leader Siraj Wahhaj explained what that meant: “The mosques need protection and the MCP cars can help stop people who were not following the rules and regulations of the sharia, doing what they’re not supposed to be doing, but still doing it.” According to a Muslim involved with the MCP, this would involve stopping “Muslim women being out after dark, Muslim men hanging out in the corners doing dope, Muslims drinking liquor,” and enforcing, “basically, the fundamentals of the Sharia.”
If such a community patrol is launched in Minneapolis, it is likely to focus on the same things, but not do anything about the fact that the 5th Congressional District in Minneapolis, Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district, is the jihad terror recruitment capital of the United States. Stopping young Muslims from engaging in jihad activity is unlikely to be a high priority for a group that is dedicated to enforcing Sharia, since Sharia calls upon Muslims to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers.

THIS is WHY mooslimes should be prohibited from holding office in the USA. They DO NOT OWE ALLEGIANCE to the USA or the Constitution.
Why mooslimes and Chinese should be BOOTED and never allowed in the USA!!!
Islam, by law, is prohibited from US immigration
https://www.unitedpatriotsofamerica.com/islam-in-america/islam-by-law-is-prohibited-from-us-immigration.html

The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality for the United States.That act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today. Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in
Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.” This, by its very definition, rules out Islamic immigration to the United States, but this law is being ignored by the White House….

Actually AFTER 9/11 Bush DOUBLED the mooslime immigration!!
And a better explanation:

Excerpts come from Section 212, Chapter 2 of the USCIS handbook:
https://www.uscis.gov/iframe/ilink/docView/SLB/HTML/SLB/act.html
.
.
.
(D) Immigrant membership in totalitarian party.-
(i) In general.-Any immigrant who is or has been a member of or affiliated with the Communist or any other totalitarian party (or subdivision or affiliate thereof), domestic or foreign, is inadmissible. (Anyone who is a Muslim are associated with a religion that denies religious freedom, subjugates women and forces all resident to worship and accept Sharia Law. That is a totalitarian)
.
.
.
(G) 41 RECRUITMENT OR USE OF CHILD SOLDIERS- Any alien who has engaged in the recruitment or use of child soldiers in violation of section 2442 of title 18, United States Code, is inadmissible.
Therefore, Trump doesn’t need the RNC, his opponents, Congress or the Supreme Court to keep from allowing Muslims from entering the country. And since Trump is nowhere as near PC as the average liberal and RINO girly men are, he will follow through….

And that’s why the UN are using people from different countries to serve as “peacekeepers” in other countries. For instance, Chinese and South Americans for the US, Americans and Canadians for Africa, Kenyans and New Zealanders for Europe, etc. (just throwing some names out, no idea how they actually do it). Goes right along with their “ReWilding”, Agenda21 and 2030 plans, etc.
The UN and the EU need to be stamped out ASAP, if not sooner. And other organizations and NGO (e.g. World Economic Forum, OECD, and others) as well…
It’s no accident that the twin(!) HQ buildings of the EC/EU look like unfinished Towers of Babel, which, when viewed from above, have the Eye of Horus (the “All-Seeing Eye”) outlined in the Atrium…

seeing stories that Pelosi is including cannabis in her relief bills–and pushing it hard as a therapy. wonder how many shares of THAT her and hubby bought recently?

Must be running low on alcohol…
Or keeping her MS-13 sparkling souls (or whatever she called them) happy…

Deplorable Patriot

I have to read through the thread to catch up, but I have a couple ground report items to relay.
First, out of the blue, one of my dog sitting clients called yesterday to shoot the breeze. That’s 25 minutes I’ll never get back (that lady can talk), but I did find out some interesting info about the viruses we’ve all had this year. Her grand-daughter and daughter in law had what sounds like the same thing Wolf and I and a number of others here had in March and before with the high fever, muscle weakness, etc. They actually were tested for the virus, and the tests came back positive for Influenza A, which is what my sister’s doctor’s office said it was. Later though, my client’s son had a bug where his sense of smell disappeared (it’s almost all the way back now). The whole family took the antibody tests and they came up positive for corona virus antibodies. Since, the tests are picking up so many corona viruses, I wouldn’t put too much stock in that, but it looks like just one person in a family getting it, and herd immunity is possible.
Second, and this is GOOD news, a girlfriend from HS (not the SJW hard core liberal) posted on FB her reaction to watching the first two episodes of a Netflix series on Jeffrey Epstein. Her word: HORRIFIC. Not kidding. In the comments, another classmate who moved away sometime when we were in HS, and who is now a teacher and hard core atheist and pretty liberal, agreed. I was floored. BUT, if those sorts of people are starting to see the light, the Great Awakening is happening, and questioning the reality that’s been presented via media vehicles to this point will begin.
It’s not as dark out there as we might think.
