Dear KAG: 20211110 Open Thread

It was hard to choose what to open with today. One of American Thinker’s excellent slate of essays on Tuesday was one thought.

In Defense of the Bourgeoisie

By Paul Krause

…The bourgeoisie class is the democratic peoples of America. Progressives know this which is why they speak the language of “the middle class” constantly while enacting policies meant to crush middle-class aspirations and dreams.

Civil society is rooted in free association and law and order. In the past few years, progressives have revealed how antagonistic they truly are toward civil society. Free association? That is just a front for white supremacy and bigotry. Law and order? That is just another manifestation of white supremacy, racism, and bigotry! COVID lockdowns, which are also antithetical to the vibrancy of civil society, were all the rage from progressive politicians and their fawning media lackeys determined to extinguish civil society and remake the ruins subservient to the federal Leviathan. (In the name of public safety, of course.)

In the attack on civil society, constitutional liberties have been regularly assailed and abused. Churches and other houses of worship have been closed and vandalized. Freedom of assembly has been rebuked as public health crises and “super spreader” events. Voicing frustration with the erosion of civil liberties also warrants de-platforming and banning on social media—with gleeful progressives cheering against those rascally middle-class Americans defending American values and liberties against tyranny.

The attack on businesses, especially small businesses—the quintessential emblems of the entrepreneurial spirit—is not accidental either. Once again progressives engage in their sleight of hand by claiming their policies are aimed at helping small businesses while engaging in business shutdowns, lockdowns, and impossible mandates that would cripple the real cornerstone of middle-class prosperity: small business ownership rather than corporate desk jobs. Not to mention burdensome inflation which is an unwritten tax that falls hardest on middle-class Americans. (But Joe Biden and his allies say they are not increasing taxes, so it must be true.)…

The essay’s discussion regards the writings of one James Burnham.

James Burnham has become a hot topic for writers and intellectuals again because of his analysis of the “administrative state.” Among other things, Burnham also wrote back the 1960s of the dangerous precipice that Western Civilization faced — which we see today. But one of his lesser-known works is The Machiavellians and, throughout his opus, he is also a staunch defender of middle-class capitalism and republicanism, something he saw as emanating from the bourgeois peoples that emerged in Europe and then spread to America.

And then in the midst of the Twitter feed popped up an essay review – the second this writer has seen in the last week – of a reprint of a 1967 book, Prayer as a Political Problem (1967), Jean Danielou, SJ. Patrick Deneen of “The Postliberal Order” writes:

The word common derives from the Proto-Indo-European, Ko-moin-i; later, in the Latin “Communis”; and eventually in the French word comun, meaning: “common, general, free, open, public, but also, “shared by all or many, familiar, not pretentious.”

Combined with the word “good,” we can see that a common good consists in those needs and concerns that are identified in the ordinary requirements of ordinary people. The common good is the sum of the needs that arise from the bottom up, and which can be more or less supplied, encouraged, and fortified from the top-down.  In a good society, the goods that are “common” are daily reinforced by the habits and practices of ordinary people. Those habits and practices form the common culture, such as through the virtues of thrift, honesty, and good memory.  However, once such a common culture is weakened or destroyed, the only hope is a renewal and reinvigoration by a responsible governing class.  A politics of the common good makes a good life more likely, even the default, for commoners. 

Thus, the common good is always either served or undermined by a political order – there is no neutrality on the matter. Emphasizing this point in his indispensable book Prayer as a Political Problem (1967), Jean Danielou, SJ, wrote:  “Politics ought to have care of the common good, that is to say, the duty of creating an order in which personal fulfillment is possible, where man might be able to completely fulfill his destiny.”

Danielou pointed to the duty of those charged with leading the political order not to deprive ordinary people of the ability both to participate in and realize the essential goods of human life.  It is not enough to ensure their freedom to pursue such goods; rather, it is the duty of the political order to positively guide them, and provide the conditions for the enjoyment of, the goods of human life.  “Religious liberty,” “academic freedom,” “free markets,” and “checks and balances,” etc., are no substitutes for piety, truth, equitable prosperity, and good government.  The liberal order maintains that the absence of constraint in these and all other domains is the sufficient condition for people to attain fulfillment.  The liberal sovereign treats all people equally, assuming that radically free human beings are equally capable of achieving the goods of human life. It is the liberal equivalent of the old Anatole France quip, “The law, in its majestic equality, forbids rich and poor alike to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal their bread.”

What we should notice is that it is ordinary people – the “working class,” citizens in “flyover country,” “essential workers” – are increasingly those who enjoy theoretical liberty and few of the substantive goods that are supposed to flow from their individual choice.  As a political order, we have provided them “the pursuit of happiness,” but deprived them of happiness.

The piece goes on to discuss the antagonism between the elites and those for whom they set the rules.

The BIG CLUB in which we the bourgeoisie are not members.

Interesting for one secular and one religious essay on the same topic to surface basically at the same time.

A few odds and ends:

And, of course, the obligatory George Carlin:

Per the Boss:

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, as well as the newest rescue venue.

Auntie DePat’s requests:

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.

WISDOM 6:1-11

1Listen therefore, O kings, and understand; learn, O judges of the ends of the earth. 2Give ear, you that rule over multitudes, and boast of many nations. 3For your dominion was given you from the Lord, and your sovereignty from the Most High, who will search out your works and inquire into your plans. 4Because as servants of his kingdom you did not rule rightly, nor keep the law, nor walk according to the purpose of God, 5he will come upon you terribly and swiftly, because severe judgment falls on those in high places. 6For the lowliest man may be pardoned in mercy, but mighty men will be mightily tested. 7For the Lord of all will not stand in awe of any one, nor show deference to greatness; because he himself made both small and great, and he takes thought for all alike. 8But a strict inquiry is in store for the mighty. 9To you then, O monarchs, my words are directed, that you may learn wisdom and not transgress. 10For they will be made holy who observe holy things in holiness, and those who have been taught them will find a defense. 11Therefore set your desire on my words; long for them, and you will be instructed.

Do not be afraid to take a chance on peace, to teach peace, to live peace. Peace will be the last word of history” – St. Pope John Paul II

Holiness is this profound contact with God, becoming a friend of God: it is letting the Other work, the Only One who can really make the world both good and happy. — Benedict XVI

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, I’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 – bite the bullet – gird the loins – bite the lip – pray for guidance, discernment, and strength – 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.

Oh, and back to the honey badgers.

Obama also didn’t seem to realize that Shakespeare was English, not Scottish.

Obama made the gaffe at the United Nations COP26 summit in Glasgow, leading many to conclude he’d mixed up Scotland with Ireland – the latter of which is often called the Emerald Isle.

Not a fan of Stephen Colbert, but this clip shows the gaffes.

It WAS.

So was his insufferable attitude, his inability to speak like a normal human being (some great ‘orator’), the islamic ring he wore for years before also using it as the wedding band for his tranny beard, the problem that nobody remembered him from college (and his college records were conveniently ‘sealed’ in a MSM-proof chamber), and the fact that he was from KENYA and therefore ineligible to be president, among LOTS of other red flags.

But the American People overlooked all of that and lots more, because “but… but… but… he’s blick!

I hope that doeosn’t trigger a call for mistrial. That would be unjustified, of course, but the Left could say it indicates bias on the part of the judge — which, of course, would be ludicrous. But I wouldn’t put it past them.

That was my thought, too. And I wouldn’t put it past someone on the Prostitution knowing about that ringtone, getting the number, and dialing it during the trial.

But it’s not just money. There is just so much social monkeying built into the very way that science is practiced. The “administrative state” of science is huge and controlling. Everybody thinks there is common sense and ethics and smart policy at the top – and there is none of that. There is CONTROL by others.

There is “go along or else”.

scott467

“There is “go along or else”.”

_____________

No doubt, but the scientists who ‘go along’ KNOW they’re ‘going along’ with fraud and outright deception.

Because as you say, if they DON’T ‘go along’, they get the “or else”.

So they do it anyway, KNOWINGLY.

And that’s the saddest part.

The cops know. The doctors know, the scientists know, they do it anyway.

The FIBers and the DOJers all know. They do it anyway.

Everybody knows, and they do it anyway.

Just following orders.

Just gotta have the paycheck.

Just gotta…

But everybody knows.

The first lawsuit has been filed against Alec Baldwin. H/t Citizen Free Press.

https://www.tmz.com/2021/11/10/rust-gaffer-sues-armorer-assistant-director-deadly-shooting-alec-baldwin/

The key gaffer on “Rust” is now taking legal action against Alec BaldwinHannah Gutierrez-Reed and Dave Halls … suing them over the fatal shooting that killed Halyna Hutchins.

Serge Svetnoy just filed suit against the above-mentioned individuals — as well as others — claiming the defendants’ alleged negligence caused him severe emotional distress in the aftermath of it all.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Svetnoy claims the bullet that struck both Hutchins and director Joel Souza actually zoomed by and nearly hit him too. Not just that, but the gaffer claims he was one of the first people on hand to tend to Halyna while she was profusely bleeding … attempting to comfort her and keep her conscious.

As for why he’s suing Baldwin, the suit claims he “owed a duty to the Plaintiff and other crew members and actors on the ‘Rust’ set to handle the Colt Revolver provided to him by defendant Halls with reasonable care and diligence for the safety of ‘Rust’ cast and crew.” It goes on to say, “This duty called for Defendant Baldwin to double-check the Colt Revolver with Halls upon being handled to ensure that it did not contain live ammunition.”

And, it goes on … “This duty further called for him [Baldwin] to handle the Colt Revolver as if it was loaded and to refrain from pointing it at anyone.” In other words, the suit claims negligence on Baldwin’s part.

And, there’s this … according to the lawsuit, the scene Baldwin was rehearsing did not call for him to pull the trigger. According to the lawsuit, the scene called for Baldwin to draw the gun and point it in the general direction of the camera, but, “the scene did not call for Defendant Baldwin to shoot the Colt Revolver.”

He also addresses Baldwin’s failures as a producer to keep the set safe, “declining requests for weapons training days,” among other things.

Svetnoy is asking for damages and a jury trial.

TheseTruths

In other “Rust” news, one of the men hired to tear down the set was bitten by a brown recluse spider. There are 6 photos. The last ones are horrific.

YIKES !!

Yeah, those pictures are NASTY. Suctioning spider bites, wasp stings, etc., very promptly, can be a really good idea. Only micrograms of that poison can cause that much damage. Getting even half out can save a limb.

Wolf Moon

Might have to modify the procedure somewhat, but it’s possible. Stings and bites are largely s.c., and the jabs are i.m.

Stings and bites are overwhelmed by serum flow back through the microscopic wound channel, flushing the toxin out. On a size basis, the toxins are WASHED OUT. A bead of serum much larger than the sting or bite will form on the skin surface.

The way to do a jab back out would be to inject saline to the same depth – maybe 10X volume – and literally suck it back out. It’s a nasty procedure, but it might get half the dose or more back out, if the injection were to the exact same point.

Valerie Curren

My mom used a credit card on my aunt one, scraping along the skin toward the stinger from a couple inches around the perimeter of the inflamed area & I think she then sucked & spit out some of the blood & poison/venom. My aunt’s bee or wasp sting was much less problematic that way, iirc.

Aubergine

If you have access to tobacco or plantain (the weed, not the fruit), you can make a poultice that will draw poison from bites and stings. Plantain is even effective for snake bite in an emergency. Just moisten the tobacco or chew up the plantain leaves and put them directly on the bite.

My granddaughter recently had a hobo spider bite. She had a swelling the size of a golf ball under the skin. Tobacco on it overnight, and the swelling entirely disappeared.

TheseTruths

Good to know!

Aubergine

🙂

Wolf Moon

Tobacco almost has to be nicotine – most likely a receptor-blocking or protein binding inhibitory phenomenon, IMO. Nicotine has notoriously strong dermal penetration and has extremely diverse receptor interactions. It is doing something to inhibit a chain reaction. I didn’t find anything in the literature about that, so it may be a new use. In an emergency, a nicotine patch would likely work, but would lack any other possible hidden agents of the tobacco. (Tobacco also contains harmala alkaloids – I didn’t know that – they’re also found in S. American shamanic psychoactives.)

Plaintain (the salad stuff) has a grab-bag of other active substances – an overview is given here:

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/labs/pmc/articles/PMC7142308/

IMO the active agent is plantamajoside, which is a sugar-linked pairing of caffeic acid and hydroxytyrosol, both of which are significant antiinflammatories, thus the whole thing is an antiinflammatory prodrug.

The “drawing of poison” IMO is a traditional mentalization for what is very likely a biochemical process inhibition of some kind due to some transdermal agent.

If the latter is correct, then (prediction) ANY modification of a poultice which increases local transdermal traffic and absorption will increase the effectiveness.

It’s getting very messy, but that was predictable. It’s interesting that the scene did not call for Baldwin to shoot. Seems he’s got some ‘splaining to do. The armorer seems very confident that she did nothing wrong.

I sure hope so. It certainly ‘smells’ like murder and not an accident.

“It will be interesting to hear the details of her defense.”

Still, I think her testimony will be key to figuring out how this rolled. She was not up to the job – incompetent – but she was also the CHUMP.

Anyone else hear this about Franklin Graham? I remember how mad I was when he actually said Jesus would take the jab.

Victoria Maria@VictoriousSpirit62

I believe it was Alex Jones who did a report (not positive it was Alex thou I watch a lot of stuff) that said in the last couple weeks almost two dozen athletes dropped, either hurt or dead, Vaccinated. Franklin Graham got pericarditisis which is one of the symptoms from the jab. Franklin, to this shame, used the name of Jesus to push this jab. I wonder if he connects the dots? Probably not.

I did see that yesterday somewhere, and promptly forgot about it. I did NOT see where he used the name of our Lord to push that foul jab. Awful.

Hate seeing this. The dude with the camera missed a golden opportunity.

He should have quickly jumped in the suburban and drove to the police station with it when the guy ran back to the minivan. He had video of the crime. The vehicle VIN number would have ID’d the perp, and removing the license plate in order to get away with committing a crime is a felony offense in any state.

The corrupt cops then arrest him for grand theft auto.

Then the real thieves would press charges.

Then the Soros-owned D.A. would prosecute.

Then the Soros-owned judge would convict.

Welcome to Amerika.

Wolf Moon

Sadly, I think you’re right. Virtue signals from D.A. and judge for sure.

ForGodandCountry

Wrong.

You can’t “steal” a car when you drive it off to prevent theft and promptly deliver it to the police while having video evidence of why you acted as you did.

And Soros doesn’t own all the police, DA’s or the judges, either.

Also, look up “wrongful prosecution” sometime.

Then again, I’m breaking my personal rule to not respond to your posts, but pointing out your extremism is necessary to counter the fear and capitulation you are attempting to sell here.

Relatedly, I am amused by your post here, as you constantly call for action, yet here you are arguing why one should not take action in a case like this.

scott467

“Wrong.”

____________

😂

.

“You can’t “steal” a car when you drive it off to prevent theft and promptly deliver it to the police”

___________

Betcha can… but what could go wrong, right?

The thief might attack you while you’re stealing his car, and now if you exercise self-defense, YOU are the one who provoked the confrontation by trying to steal his car, so you don’t have just cause to use deadly force if necessary…

Or you get in an accident on the way to the police station, at which point you are arrested for grand theft auto… “No, honestly Officer Friendly, I wasn’t stealing that car full of stolen goods, I was driving it to the police station!”…

Tell it to the judge… and the jury… you’ll be able to hear the laughter across oceans… 😂 🤣 😂

.

“…while having video evidence of why you acted as you did.”

__________

Yeah, what could go wrong there?

Evidence gets misplaced, or video gets erased by accident, and even if the video gets into evidence, it will be the thief using it to convict you, because the fact remains you committed a felony grand theft auto, while the thief only stole a couple dozen gallons of Tide laundry detergent…

You’re defense is looking better with each passing second… 😂 🤣 😂

.

“And Soros doesn’t own all the police, DA’s or the judges, either.”

_________

Except for the ones he does. You are aware of the Soros-owned DAs, that whole scheme to corrupt the justice system?

I think SD talks about it regularly.

.

“Also, look up “wrongful prosecution” sometime.”

If someone is posting Conservative Brief to their timeline nonstop, it’s the quickest way to know their timeline and their influence is for sale. 😉

Conservative Brief offered me $1000/month to post their articles on my timeline, and I turned them down.

I’m fairly certain they pay larger accounts much more lol. But that’s what they offered me.

New article at Political Moonshine:

The Problematic Posteriori Backseat Driving of President Trump
10 Nov 21

Intro: “The posteriori backseat driving of President Trump is problematic for a myriad of irreconcilable reasons and anecdotal data points portending ominously for any notions about 2024. Before traveling a single inch further down this road, allow me to provide the requisite contextual backdrop to properly frame what is being argued here.

We can start with this simple acknowledgement – I love the man. I love what President Trump did and attempted to do in order to restore this former Constitutional Republic back to its proper form. But that’s not why we’re here.

Where backseat driving intersects with this analysis centers on what the President did not do. This is where we as voters and deeply authentic supporters of the man and his platform reserve the right, which deserves to be exercised by our own volition, to shine the light on the factual truth where it deserves to be shone.

We can begin by defining the posteriori backseat driving to which I’m referring while understanding that this is merely a recent example from a broad and deep record of similar rhetorical items delivered by Mr. Trump since the 2020 election was permitted to be stolen.”

[continued at title link above]

Linda

Whoah!

“Recall that Mr. Wood spent roughly a week with attorney Sydney Powell and Lt. General Michael Flynn and was privy to an abundance of evidence. In those meetings he learned of two retaliatory threats that were on the table should the Trump administration push back on the stolen election: 1) a viral compromise of the nation’s water supply and 2) the detonation of an EMP over the Midwest that would collapse supply chains and according to reliable research, would eventually result in 90% of the population perishing.”

Elizabeth Carter

Linda, That makes total sense. That is the best explanation I have heard so far for why they all separated and fought from different vantage points.

scott467

“In those meetings he learned of two retaliatory threats that were on the table should the Trump administration push back on the stolen election: 1) a viral compromise of the nation’s water supply”

___________

I remembered that one from when it was first reported, because it didn’t make sense. Water supplies get contaminated all the time, and people boil their water until the problem is resolved.

If I understand correctly, viruses are very susceptible to heat. Boiling water should be plenty hot enough.

.

“…and 2) the detonation of an EMP over the Midwest that would collapse supply chains and according to reliable research, would eventually result in 90% of the population perishing.”

____________

Supply chains are collapsing anyway.

It would be great to know where that ‘reliable research’ came from. Some D.C. ‘think tank’? Gov’t goon squad? Those types do all the best research… the only problem is that their research invariably facilitates enemy objectives.

Funny, that.

Regardless, and as I have said before, if someone makes a credible threat that would result in the loss of 90% of your population, whoever said it just gave the POTUS the green light and just cause to vaporize him.

There are only a handful of parties who could make a credible threat of that kind, so assuming they didn’t reveal their own identity, it would take a professional intelligence agency about 3.4 seconds to figure out who it was.

Then commence vaporization procedures.

What you don’t do, what you don’t ever do, is surrender.

Because any enemy who would carry out such a threat is going to eradicate your population anyway. So by surrendering, you just let them murder your country without even putting up an argument, much less a fight.

TheseTruths

Someone who doesn’t have all the facts (because none of us do) casting blame on PDJT and doubts in people’s minds. He ends the article with this:

Ultimately, it distills down to this. Either Mr. Trump left a viable legal remedy in his wake to rightfully return to office out of cycle and before 2024 or he was inadequately prepared to make good on his 2016 promises and he didn’t; instead to aiming for a 2024 fix.

Regardless, I still love the man only wishing things were different and better; like what I envisioned when I voted for him in 2016.

Stick the knife in, then twist it. He has no idea whether the two alternatives he presents are correct and that they are the only correct options. The last sentence is propaganda at its finest: claim to be supportive while pining that you wish things were different. “I still love you, Honey, I just wish things were like I expected they would be five years ago” — without giving Honey the benefit of the doubt or allowing Honey to explain. Please.

I find his material close to unreadable, and I see no need for this article and no good that could come of it.

I didn’t take the article that way at all.

It helps to separate what we want to believe, and what we actually know, and what we can reasonably deduce from it, otherwise we’re just cheerleaders for one side or the other.

The author has been doing incredible investigative work since the very beginning of the planndemic.

Are the points he made in the article not valid ones, based on the information available, and the application of basic reasoning?

It’s good practice to question everything, and that includes the people who present themselves as acting in our (or the country’s) best interest.

There was a time, not that long ago, when regular people questioned their political leadership, even the leadership of their own party.

When did that change?

That’s the Declaration of Independence.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” [emph added]

And the answer to why we’re not doing that now is right above it in the same paragraph — “[M]ankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”

mollypitcher5

Very interesting.
One thing that I don’t understand is if the threats were valid then why/how would they not be in play in the future ?

cthulhu

I assume you mean “abuses and usurpations” when you say “threats”.

The bulk of the DofI is a list of such abuses upon Americans by the British. The abuses levied today by globalists and the American Ruling Class are slightly different because we lead different lives today. It is yet to be seen whether they are sufficient in import or number to justify such a Declaration.

mollypitcher5

No, accidentally put the comment in wrong place.

I’m talking about these threats talked about in the Moonshine article

1) a viral compromise of the nation’s water supply and 2) the detonation of an EMP over the Midwest that would collapse supply chains and according to reliable research, would eventually result in 90% of the population perishing.”

cthulhu

Once you pay the Danegeld, you are never rid of the Dane.

mollypitcher5

Right.

I’m so cynical about everything so with the numerous Trump betrayers …maybe the intel was fake but given credence by yet more betrayers ?

cthulhu

Trump’s signature move is to charge through ambushes. If these two blackmail issues were truly on the table, I have no doubt he’d have found a way to charge though them.

Cuppa Covfefe

Aren’t we pretty much seeing the same thing now, anyway???

The viral outbreak is the ChiComCorona, aided and abortifaciently-abetted by the clot shot.

The EMP to collapse supply chains has been substituted by a virtual blockade of most ports with hundreds if not thousands of container ships (and their thousands of containers) backed up at sea. Just wait until bad weather hits….. wonder who gets to pay for all that?

(OK, I know…. WE GET TO PAY, as always)….

Time for the ChiComs to suffer some collateral damnedage, as it were…..

TheseTruths

Exactly.

If this is true, this news needs to be spread big time.

It always seemed logical that if there was any difference in batches that the ones formulated for maximum potency would be distributed last for all the so called vax hesitant…IOW anti vaxxers IOW hoping they would be primarily conservatives
