Dear KAG: 20210707 Open Thread


Not sure what to put here today that won’t get me into a heap of trouble.

Hmm….

Not this:

Certainly not this.

Maybe this.

I personally like this one.

And have had to resign myself to this one…at least at opera company auditions.

Even the memes were light yesterday.

It’s boring anyway. Fitting in would mean a whole new wardrobe.

And the obligatory George Carlin:

Per the Boss:

I went looking for a new movie theme and found a spy movie I may have to check out.

Salt: Trailer #2
Evelyn Salt (Jolie) is a CIA officer who swore an oath to duty, honor, and country. When she is accused by a defector of being a Russian sleeper spy, Salt goes on the run to clear her name and ultimately prove she is a patriot. Using all her skills and years of experience as a covert operative, she must elude capture and protect her husband or the world’s most powerful forces will erase any trace of her existence.

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

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

Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.

Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there. The “Rescue Thread” is also over there. In the event a rendezvous of the tree is needed, please check it out.

Auntie DePatโ€™s requests as we are all, ahem, adults, not uncivilized pygmies:

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.

One other vital note:

Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.

GENESIS 41:55-57; 42:5-7, 17-24

4155When all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread; and Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph; what he says to you, do.” 56So when the famine had spread over all the land, Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold to the Egyptians, for the famine was severe in the land of Egypt. 57Moreover, all the earth came to Egypt to Joseph to buy grain, because the famine was severe over all the earth. 425Thus the sons of Israel came to buy among the others who came, for the famine was in the land of Canaan. 6Now Joseph was governor over the land; he it was who sold to all the people of the land. And Joseph’s brothers came, and bowed themselves before him with their faces to the ground. 7Joseph saw his brothers, and knew them, but he treated them like strangers and spoke roughly to them. “Where do you come from?” he said. They said, “From the land of Canaan, to buy food.” 17And he put them all together in prison for three days. 18On the third day Joseph said to them, “Do this and you will live, for I fear God: 19if you are honest men, let one of your brothers remain confined in your prison, and let the rest go and carry grain for the famine of your households, 20and bring your youngest brother to me; so your words will be verified, and you shall not die.” And they did so. 21Then they said to one another, “In truth we are guilty concerning our brother, in that we saw the distress of his soul, when he besought us and we would not listen; therefore is this distress come upon us.” 22And Reuben answered them, “Did I not tell you not to sin against the lad? But you would not listen. So now there comes a reckoning for his blood.” 23They did not know that Joseph understood them, for there was an interpreter between them. 24Then he turned away from them and wept; and he returned to them and spoke to them. And he took Simeon from them and bound him before their eyes.

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

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

Thanking everybody for your patience. Whether happenstance, coincidence, or enemy action, Iโ€™m dealing with some technical issues. In addition to those, and the obvious spiritual attacks, I am dealing with the obvious site stuff in what are best maintained as unobvious ways.

I suspect we struck a nerve.

A combined technical / spiritual / strategic response by all of us will prevent this attack from succeeding. Hold the line โ€“ bite the bullet โ€“ gird the loins โ€“ bite the lip โ€“ pray for guidance, discernment, and strength โ€“ whatever YOU believe keeps the ship aright for the moment. Everything else is lower priority.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

Somehow, I think this guy exceeds the weight limit for that aparatus.

Two questions?

Anyone see any info about a funeral for Rumsfeld?

They already took down the remaining structure of the FL building, right? How do you wire up a structure for demolition immediately, yet there’s no stories or video of folks leaving or being relocated? And isn’t that process painstaking/time consuming? IDL is there, why? That whole condo thing is just off.

And the company that did the demolition of the other half is the same one that was contracted to do the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City. I read that somewhere.

kalbokalbs

Speaking of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City, that land has become Memorial that was incredibly well done. So glad I took time to visit the Memorial a few years back.

Cuppa Covfefe

Wonder if the other piece that didn’t fall in the first place, should have fallen… so the wires and charges, etc., would be already in place, once someone debugged why they didn’t work as planned…

Then again, the remaining piece was probably really compromised structurally, so not much of a push would be needed to take it down…..

singingsoul1

My husband thinks that some inspectors were paid off.
He also thinks that there were mistakes made there also could be faulty material.
He has seen problems seen before where things were miscalculated faulty concrete skimping on iron rods. What he has seen just alone on internet he found strange that the building was build this way. I think though one has to see thinks close up to come to a conclusion. To many thinks are strange.

Cuppa Covfefe

The problem is, there are a number of buildings nearby of similar age, type of construction, size, and placement.

And they’re still standing.

And the various flashes that show in the videos are typical of a controlled demolition, set up so the structure being demolished falls in on itself. It’s a very complex process, and, interestingly enough, the Germans are among the best at it (no idea why or how)… Probably lots of stuff to demolish after WWII that needed to be cleared out of the way without causing even more damage…

Take down an already compromised building, questions lead in all directions. Plausible deniability.

Almost like giving very ill or vulnerable people the spike vaccine. Something goes wrong, they died of COVID or the pre-existing conditions, no questions asked. Plausible deniability once again…

These people are slick, evil, and from the pit of Hell…….

It is. We have old family graves around here and there are old slave graves around that you don’t know the names of anymore. There are groups, mostly old-timers who still try to maintain the ones around here…to give at least a little respect and dignity to them.

singingsoul1

That is very sad.

Good! States need to stand up to the feds.

Patrick Henry at the Virginia Ratifying Convention, June 1788:

http://www.let.rug.nl/usa/documents/1786-1800/the-anti-federalist-papers/speech-of-patrick-henry-(june-7-1788).php

This Constitution is said to have beautiful features; but when I come to examine these features, Sir, they appear to me horribly frightful: Among other deformities, it has an awful squinting; it squints towards monarchy: And does not this raise indignation in the breast of every American? Your President may easily become King: Your Senate is so imperfectly constructed that your dearest rights may be sacrificed by what may be a small minority; and a very small minority may continue forever unchangeably this Government, although horridly defective: Where are your checks in this Government? Your strong holds will be in the hands of your enemies: It is on a supposition that our American Governors shall be honest, that all the good qualities of this Government are founded: But its defective, and imperfect construction, puts it in their power to perpetrate the worst of mischiefs, should they be bad men: And, Sir, would not all the world, from the Eastern to the Western hemisphere, blame our distracted folly in resting our rights upon the contingency of our rulers being good or bad. Shew me that age and country where the rights and liberties of the people were placed on the sole chance of their rulers being good men, without a consequent loss of liberty? I say that the loss of that dearest privilege has ever followed with absolute certainty, every such mad attempt.

Deplorable Patriot

I’m looking around for something for tomorrow’s daily, and…just can’t put this up for that, but I’m dying.

Meanwhile…..

kalbokalbs

Hoping air shows make a big come back. Saw a headline a few days back that both Blue Angels and Thunderbirds have started performing agin.

Cuppa Covfefe

Worked at a place in Mountain View, CA where we’d go up on the roof and watch them practice for Fleet Week. Was spectacular (and noisy). But, that was a loooooong time ago. Probably the SF Gay Area and the land of Piglosi frown on such things….

But air shows and such are wonderful.

Used to drive by Moffet every day, had a couple of friends who worked on the telescope planes based at Ames… Ahh, those were the days… (less traffic, too)…..

kalbokalbs

Yes. More than a few decades ago, I was in that area. great times and memories. Zero desire to go back.

Cuppa Covfefe

Off of Old Middlefield?

kalbokalbs

Actually San Jose – The Alemeda and Park Avenue. 1240 Hanchett actually. Back in the day, our bicycle range was easily 15+ miles. Then as a derelect teen, wherever we could afford gas, and back. Commonly Santa Cruz or Frisco. ๐Ÿ™‚

para59r

Lived at Moffet’s base housing, which was actually outside the gate. Very nice. Work though was forty miles away in Dublin (CP Parks).

kalbokalbs

Camp Parks. There’s a memory. While on the Big E – Enterprise, brought my division to Camp Parks for small arms live fire training. Ship’s normally do this training off the fantail (rear of the ship), but we were in dry dock at Hunter’s Point, Frisco. Alameda our actual home port.

Camp Parks must be seriously surrounded by houses, if not closed down and now civilian property (houses).

15 years ago home encroachment wasn’t to bad. Not sure what it is now. They had a woman’s federal prison right next door to firing range. They’d do a lot of night fire there. I can imagine the prisoners didn’t like it. There was also a helicopter prison break too. Guy walked out of minimum security prison else where and stole a helicopter to spring his girl friend. They got rearrested later when they showed up to pick up their wedding rings. Nice country. Soft rolling hills.

RF121

My first ship participated in the first fleet week in 1981. The main thing I remember was bobbing like a cork out side of the Golden Gate bridge while we got all lined up.

kalbokalbs

Choppy waters. Commonly cold and windy.

RF121

We were doing some serious rock and rolling

Brave and Free

Saw the BA a month ago at a show it was great.

Deplorable Patriot

I did used to live close enough to the Naval Air Test Center to know the difference between an F-4 and and F-18 by sound.

kalbokalbs

F-4, likened to a flying brick.

Deplorable Patriot

And they were LOUD. I mean LOUD.

At the time we were at Pax River, they were used as the chaser planes for flight test. And the first flight was at 6 am right over the place McDonnell had personnel living.

kalbokalbs

Pax River has sure grown up since NAVAIR moved in.

Deplorable Patriot

No kidding.

Deplorable Patriot

Now that I think about it…wasn’t NAVAIR in Crystal City at one point? When he was on the AV-8 my dad went out there a lot.

kalbokalbs

Yup. My recollection is they moved from Crystal City to Pax.

Deplorable Patriot

About an hour down the road.

scott467

The P-51 Mustang is the plane I would want to fly.

That or the F4 Corsair, that I saw every Sunday night as a kid, on Baa Baa Black Sheep ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ˜

Deplorable Patriot

We are poor little lambs who have lost our way….

That song is actually from a club not far from Yale.

kalbokalbs

Yea. Enjoyed that TV show.

Deplorable Patriot

And I hadn’t even clicked on the video yet.

My youngest brother was born around Black Sheep’s airing that night. The doctor wanted to watch it. So, he said, “I’m going to vahtch Black sheep, and then vee vill deliver dis baby.” He was from Germany.

Sounds like a highly intelligent man who had his priorities in good order.

No. This….

And now, just when you thought things couldn’t get any wierder:

The Saxon SPD group defended their advocacy of a special waste-disposal basket for Hygiene products for “Menstruating Men” to be installed in public restrooms…

Yep. I’m surprised the FemiNAZIs haven’t attacked the term MENstruation for being “sexist”…. Boy (oops) would that tie them up in knots… oops again, they might like that…..

They are demented. Have to say that would have never happened under Ulbricht.

When they start naming “variants” for frat houses…. Delta Delta Delta is taken.

What is this covid? Only people buying into here now are guvmint, sheeple, and bureaucrats. And those forced to by their employer and cal osha.

Nit: Tri-Delta is a sorority.

Yes, I know. I identified as one one night to get into a party.

SteveInCO

And now you identify as vaccinated to get into parties.

At U$C they called them Fly-Delt…

A Trump-appointed judge on Wednesday refused to block Georgiaโ€™s new election integrity law in a major blow to a left-wing group requesting a preliminary injunction.

TheseTruths

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/07/no-trespassing-lawmaker-says-vaccine-harassers-can-charged/

This morning, Arizona State Senator Kelly Townsend informed us on how to protect ourselves against Vaccine Nazis.

“I have spoken to local law enforcement and if you don’t want the Federal government on your property asking about vaccines, they advise you to post a no trespassing sign in a visible location. This is a prerequisite to be able to charge someone for being there against your will.”

Arizona GOP Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward then suggested personalizing your sign to specifically prohibit vaccine harassment and trespassing.

What happened to our right to be secure against unreasonable searches and seizures?

What happened to our rights over our health information?

Hmmm. Maybe I and thousands of other conservatives who went through the purge will get our Twitter accounts back:

John Coale, lead lawyer in the Trump social media lawsuit:

Well…

According to a website Hoax Slayer, the creepy cartoon in fact, emerged after the POTUSโ€™ visit to Saudi Arabia in May. It was instead, a screen grab, taken from a video marking 125 days of Trump in office uploaded on the official Facebook page of Simpsons.

Thanks for the fact check, These Truths. I cut my cable years ago, so I wouldn’t know what appeared on the Simpsons.

I never watched it either.
