Dear KAG: 20210427 Open Thread

Cover image: Through the Dogwood by Christine David. CORRECTION: CHRISTIANE David.

I don’t know about anyone else, but right now in the midst of spring and flowering trees being in full bloom, the quiet does seem to feel like the calm before some sort of storm. What that is or will be is another question, but one thing is for sure: waiting is the hardest part.

Patience really is not a great American virtue.

We want it over with already, and, frankly, we have no idea what’s gong on beneath the surface other than the Democrats are pulling crap in Arizona to spike the audit of the November 2020 election, and some of the states with larger electoral college totals are losing votes thanks to the people migrating elsewhere.

Such is life in America. The people are free to go where they think they will have the best advantages.

And yet, here we are.

At this point, where else are we going to go just for some hope – yes, hope – that this massive mess foisted on us by the powers that wannabe will eventually be untangled.

Just a reminder:

Of course, this does not mean committing felonies, but standing up to the forces that want to tear this nation – and humanity apart. The very people XVII told us will be destroyed by the time this movie comes to an end are currently roaming the halls of power…supposedly. It’s a sickening sight.

And now for something completely different.

Your weekly reminder to take the pledge:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

And now for the nitty gritty of the Q Tree 5 minute, stand up, Tuesday morning meeting version of the Daily Thread.

Ahem.

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out with anyone who happens to still be hanging out there. There is also a “rescue” thread there for members of the Tree to rendezvous if the main site goes kablooey.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

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

And Auntie DePat’s requests as we are all, ahem, adults, although some of us are beginning to wonder what the threshold for true adulthood is:

If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.

The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.

Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.

JOHN 10:22-30

22It was the feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem; 23it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon. 24So the Jews gathered round him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness to me; 26but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep. 27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; 28and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. 29My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30I and the Father are one.”

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

Not a song and dance guy, but this is pretty cool. The resistance grows.

That was fun 🙂

Yes! We need to see some of that here.

Always go out without a mask. Someone calls a protest at Carson city capitol grounds and I’ll be there. Hopefully we’d also march to the guvners mansion ~four blocks away

ANOTHER DEM SCANDAL: Obama’s Former Advisor Arrested!
Ava Garcia1 hour ago

https://thetruedefender.com/another-dem-scandal-obamas-former-advisor-arrested/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=another-dem-scandal-obamas-former-advisor-arrested

“Seth Andrew, a former White House advisor to the ex-President Barack Obama, was arrested this week on charges related to him allegedly stealing $218,005 from a charter school network he founded. U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York stated that Andrew has been charged with wire fraud, money laundering, and giving false statements to a financial institution.”

“As alleged, Seth Andrew abused his position as a founder of a charter school network to steal from the very same schools he helped create,” U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a statement. “Andrew is not only alleged to have stolen the schools’ money but also to have used the stolen funds to obtain savings on a mortgage for a multimillion-dollar Manhattan apartment.”

has been charged with wire fraud, money laundering, and giving false statements to a financial institution”… just another day of bizness in the DEMONRAT family… Can’t wait to see the Bye, Dones, the Klintoons, the Piglosis, Schumer, Schiff, and all the riff-raff in SDNY as well as the rest of the Burn, Loot, and Murder gang at the front of that sentence (as it were)…


duchess01

It may take a while for us to see Justice rein over America – but, I believe we will see it – and – it could be these people are no longer with us – just their ‘doubles’ and/or ‘clones’.

Looking forward to understanding what instigated the LE arresting folks for seemingly doing nothing wrong.

singingsoul1

Seven people were attacked with an knife in the center of asylum seeker. Two were serious wounded . Helicopter and ambulance were sent to the refugee center.

kalbokalbs

Clearly more going on than what this video depicts.

Would not have guessed that was a refugee center. Nor the guy in the white coat was up to no good.

Any idea if the refugees are muzzies?

singingsoul1

No idea but would assume because of knife ?

gil00

Likely or we’d hear more about it.

Cuppa Covfefe

Most likely, as they are almost exclusively the ones seeking asylum. And knives are their weapon of choice, although they have been known to use iron pipes, baseball bats, machetes, saws, 2x4s, and pretty much anything that will do as a weapon, if no knives are to hand, underscoring the idocy of the various “sharp knives” and gun laws…

These events happen all the time over here when an “Asylbewerber” has their application rejected or faces deportation (which the squishy socialists are loath to do). Adding to the problem is that many, if not most refauxgees have multiple applications, identities, or both (!)…

Going to be a hell of recall.

Well, last time you had a recall, you ended up with AHNOLD.

cthulhu

Ahnold was reasonably MAGA and was doing well until he put out five (IIRC) kickass initiatives that would have GUTTED Dims — one was a ban on public sector unions.

Well, the machines managed to tank them all — and evidently showed him some pretty deep blackmail — and he turned into a complete ineffectual girly-man overnight, and stayed that way. Had those proposals gone through, it would be an entirely different state today.

gil00

Ha! Again i didnt read your comment first and biy are we sympatico! We would be a golden state indeed.

gil00

He was the guy who shouldve been like Trump back then who actually had not bad ideas the first time. Then he only wanted to be popular, his ego was hurt and he went total libtard.

Yeah. He had a lot going on.

TheseTruths

248 years ago today, on April 27, 1773, the British Parliament passed the Tea Act, which would lead to the Boston Tea Party on December 16, 1773. They had no idea what the long-term consequences of their actions would be.

It’s going to be a mass Satanic ritual. It will probably include predictive programming for their next major false flag and/or upcoming summer psy-op. They did the same thing on September 10th, 2001 with a huge concert Satanic ritual at MSG.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Jackson:_30th_Anniversary_Celebration

-eyeroll-

On September 11, 2001, Jackson along with his personal assistant Frank Cascio were scheduled for a meeting at the World Trade Center, to return a “two million” dollar watch Jackson used for the concert, and a diamond necklace for Elizabeth Taylor, but overslept and did not make it.

Pure coincidence, I’m sure.

So, there’s an article where a bunch of (local to me) public health idiots are saying, “poor pitiful me” because they endorsed a bunch of totalitarian power grabs under guise of crackpot “science” and now they’re getting death threats.

I initially read it, sneered, and closed the tab….but I keep thinking about it — so I’m going to share.

kalbokalbs

ZERO sympathy for the asshoe “public health” officials that have been abusing the citizens for ~thirteen months.

cthulhu

Sort of reminds me of the Wizard of Id cartoon where an advisor is telling the king, “half of the population wants to see you boiled in oil!”

The king asks, “what do the other half think?”

“Kerosene.”

mollypitcher5

Interesting, for any that haven’t been there, it’s a leftie mecca. Always has been, at least as far back as I remember . Think Newsome recall..there’s a lot of Lefties but they’re used to being free spirit types. Skaters, surfers, bikers…a lot of homeless by choice people

I can see them chafing and pissed about being locked in, masked up with police hassling them about gathering outdoors

Cuppa Covfefe

It’s basically the NewAge capital of the world (OK, Asilomar, but that’s nearby). Kind of ironic to have all those peaceniks going from meditating and changing “OMMMM” to going “OMG!!!” and actually doing something…

Kali-fornians must be royally P!$$ED.

It’s about time.

Maybe they’ll FINALLY get red-pilled and do something about it.

Though I’ve heard the state was a lot redder (not Kommie redder) than the DEMONRAT-cooked numbers showed… DEMONION voting systems indeed…….

gil00

Santa cruz is nutty.

cthulhu

Should you ever visit Asheville, NC, you’ll park and start walking around and in less than 10 minutes you’ll be thinking, “this is Santa Cruz with no beach.”

mollypitcher5

I’ll have to check it out one day !

gil00

Ill keep that in mind!

mollypitcher5

Hahhaah it is . Like acid trip nutz. I loved it when I lived there but that was when I was as goofy hippie as the rest…and they’re still just like that

cthulhu

When I was in High School in northern LA County, there was a trope: “Like _______ on acid.” — where the blank was filled by something G or PG.

“Like The Tiki Room on acid….”

“Like an emu on acid….”

gil00

I always think about the Lost Boys and UC santa cruz….vampires, banana slugs, and leftards.

cthulhu

UC Santa Cruz was famous for not giving letter grades. Each student got a paragraph, instead. Don’t know if that still happens.

gil00

A what???? Oh man. I wish i had the option of 4 yr school when i was younger. It wouldve been interesting then.

cthulhu

*sigh* Even the banana slug population is down (probably due to drought).

kalbokalbs

It is nutty. Always has been.

Early 70’s used to cut school, Lincoln High San Jose. Drive over the hill to Santa Cruz. Enjoy the beach and roast hot dogs on the beach. Back home in time for dinner. 🙂 My Mother never knew. 😉

Back in the day, I was out of control.

mollypitcher5

Good thing she didn’t know…highway 17 can be a nice drive or a nightmare depending on how everybody is driving. I always was in denial if my kids talked about going to San Jose..had to take a ‘tonic’ (lol) to deal with it

cthulhu

I used to drive SCUBA gear over it from Sunnyvale to Monterey in a Nissan Sentra. The phrase we used to describe the process was “pregnant cow on quaaludes.”

mollypitcher5

The one plodding along the curves all slow while some are flying by ?
One time my parents came to visit and my dad rented a car at the airport so he was following me. Guess I was driving kind of fast so he’s trying to navigate the twists and turns. By the time we got home he was sweating..said somebody on otherside scraped the wall and car debris was flying all over.

Hint: the SCUBA gear was a substantial fraction of the weight of the car, and the thing was already so underpowered that it drove differently with one person or two inside.

Cuppa Covfefe

Don’t know if they even have them in the states, but you might like to drive a Citroën 2CV (aka “The Duck” or “Ente”) (Deux Chevaux, i.e. two steam horses, or, we’d say, two horsepower [or so it seemed]).

And from inside:

“For Your Eyes Only” had a *cough* car chase with one…
TopGear has an article about it: https://www.topgear.com/car-news/top-gear-series-25/everything-you-need-know-about-citroen-2cv

cthulhu

There’s actually a guy around the corner that has a collection of weird miniature cars. Just because.

He has at least one of those French Lemons.

Cuppa Covfefe

They used to scrub the center divider on a regular basis so people wouldn’t get distracted or spooked by all the paint/debris on it… was a nightmare in bad weather, or when after a long evening…

Highway 152 had its moments, too. Shortcut from 101 to I-5 or Highway 99 (past the immortal Casa de Fruta) but also more than a few problems now and then. (But also plenty of roadside stands in growing season)…

Cuppa Covfefe

There was always Highway 9 😀 or 😮

cthulhu

For those unfamiliar — a bunch of Highway 9 also has street signs. As in “Big Basin Road — Highway 9”. As such, it’s a two-way street that is occasionally throttled to one-way by landslides. It’s a paved road, and not a goat trail — so there’s that.

mollypitcher5

You probably won’t see this story but…once I hitched a ride from Boulder Creek to Santa Cruz on Highway 9 in a totally crazy hippie outfitted school bus. They were friends of mine and lived in it. Not unusual except there was a roaring fire going in a rickety pot bellied stove ! Even with the wacky weed I knew that was an accident waiting to happen.
Hahah was really glad to get down that mountain that day

cthulhu

In spite of the Couch Commando’s triumphant return, DePat has provided us a new post and we should mosey over there some time…..

If we don’t know the exact procedure and policies of the audit, then neither does the enemy.
Information is valuable and if the procedures were completely known, it would be easier to infiltrate and disrupt the process.

So i dont know why this is, but we have Canadian geese all over my area. This is the first time ive ever seen them here. Parks and golf courses.
Is there some new migration pattern for them to be in socal?

cthulhu

When we were in Fiji for a dive trip, we were out walking around the area and encountered a sign that said (from memory):

“Attention! The Taveuni Department of Agriculture has designated Lantana as a NOXIOUS WEED. Anyone who sees Lantana is to report it to the Taveuni Department of Agriculture IMMEDIATELY.”

When we got back to the hotel, I asked what that meant.

The reply was, “they come and burn your pasture.” If you report one little 12″ lantana plant, they’ll burn a 50 foot circle around it. Other islands have been overrun, and they don’t want to be another example.

Canada geese are the lantana of waterfowl.

gil00

Ah. But why here all of a sudden? Its wierd.

Cuppa Covfefe

Were Schiff or Buttigieg nearby?
