DEAR MAGA: Open Thread 20220113

Are we there, yet?

Maybe not, but we’re definitely making progress.

We all saw the exchange between senators and Little Tony on Tuesday. Here is what the great American muckraker (he’s better at it than the originals) had to say about all of that and the whistleblowers.

Senator Rand Paul followed up his stellar performance with this mini-interview:

This – HOPEFULLY – leads to:

There is that.

And with that in mind, our own P-Rex has a piece that lays it out nicely:

They have ALWAYS had the “vaccine” you NEVER make a bioweapon without FIRST making the antidote. One small problem, the “vaccine” was NOT tested thoroughly enough (likely because it too was developed in China at the same time), and it is having horrendous consequences, and DEATHS. That folks, despite an EUA and a “waiver” WILL threaten and eventually TAKE all of their ill gotten PROFIT.

This is the beginning of the END for Fauci, his merry co conspirators, and the Covid “pandemic” They CANNOT hide this ANY longer, and if you read the signs, there are MANY, the rats are beginning to jump the sinking ship.

Soon, the MSM will see or sense the change in the wind, and begin to actually start to tell the truth and ATTACK the conspirators, even though the MSM is a MAJOR player, they will pretend they were “duped”

THAT is what is going on and why Fauci and some politicians are beginning to SWEAT. Fauci and Dasak are DOOMED. They will not just be fired, they will not just be jailed, they face the VERY real possibility of being EXECUTED for this.

The MSM, politicians, and others will soon TURN on Fauci. HE will be the fall guy. Like we are supposed to forget all the help he had in perpetrating and EXPANDING this deadly fraud. I fully expect that when the heat is turned up on him, he will cave, or begin to talk, and THEN Dr Fauci, will tragically, die from his OWN monster. WATCH.

This is a TRILLION dollar scam, multi trillion. It killed (needlessly) MILLIONS. The economic impact alone, let alone the human costs now and in the future will be hundreds of trillions of dollars.

These “pentagon papers” (The DARPA rejection) ARE the smoking gun.

And if the seven deadly sins were social media platforms:

Pride, narcissism…it’s all part of the same sin.

For those missing the mean tweets:

Okay, what’s going on out there in the world.

For the record, that’s not really how it’s done, but we agree with the sentiment.


One of the obstacles to full understanding of just what the enemy is all about revolves around the concept of symbolism.

Today’s symbol is that of the shell, specifically, the scallop.

Believe it or not, this is a symbol of Baptism.

…the scallop shell was also used in the administration of the sacrament of Baptism. Not only did it prove to be a practical tool to pour water on someone, it also carried that same symbolism of pilgrimage with it. Baptism is the start of the Christian journey and so when a priest uses a scallop shell to pour water on a child, he is initiating that child on a pilgrimage towards heaven. This is also why the scallop shell can often be seen artistically represented in baptistries or on baptismal fonts.

Which makes this logo rather curious.

1 SAMUEL 4:1-11

1And the word of Samuel came to all Israel. Now Israel went out to battle against the Philistines; they encamped at Ebene’zer, and the Philistines encamped at Aphek. 2The Philistines drew up in line against Israel, and when the battle spread, Israel was defeated by the Philistines, who slew about four thousand men on the field of battle. 3And when the troops came to the camp, the elders of Israel said, “Why has the LORD put us to rout today before the Philistines? Let us bring the ark of the covenant of the LORD here from Shiloh, that he may come among us and save us from the power of our enemies.” 4So the people sent to Shiloh, and brought from there the ark of the covenant of the LORD of hosts, who is enthroned on the cherubim; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phin’ehas, were there with the ark of the covenant of God. 5When the ark of the covenant of the LORD came into the camp, all Israel gave a mighty shout, so that the earth resounded. 6And when the Philistines heard the noise of the shouting, they said, “What does this great shouting in the camp of the Hebrews mean?” And when they learned that the ark of the LORD had come to the camp, 7the Philistines were afraid; for they said, “A god has come into the camp.” And they said, “Woe to us! For nothing like this has happened before. 8Woe to us! Who can deliver us from the power of these mighty gods? These are the gods who smote the Egyptians with every sort of plague in the wilderness. 9Take courage, and acquit yourselves like men, O Philistines, lest you become slaves to the Hebrews as they have been to you; acquit yourselves like men and fight.” 10So the Philistines fought, and Israel was defeated, and they fled, every man to his home; and there was a very great slaughter, for there fell of Israel thirty thousand foot soldiers. 11And the ark of God was captured; and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phin’ehas, were slain.

MARK 1:40-45

40And a leper came to him beseeching him, and kneeling said to him, “If you will, you can make me clean.” 41Moved with pity, he stretched out his hand and touched him, and said to him, “I will; be clean.” 42And immediately the leprosy left him, and he was made clean. 43And he sternly charged him, and sent him away at once, 44and said to him, “See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer for your cleansing what Moses commanded, for a proof to the people.” 45But he went out and began to talk freely about it, and to spread the news, so that Jesus could no longer openly enter a town, but was out in the country; and people came to him from every quarter.

I like your reasoning.

But McCarthy has to go. Never forget he is John Boehner’s protégé, and that is just to start what is a very long list of reasons why the house minority leader is corrupt and cannot be trusted.

If not Jordan, then who?

He/she MUST come from within the Freedom Caucus.


They need to STOP taking a knee for money.

McCarthy IS swamp, Uniparty, RINO…SIGNIFICANT PART OF THE PROBLEM. McCarthy has to go.

One minor snit. The use of the word “curatives” is clearly a RINO / establishment / deep state ploy to “defuse” that issue. What a bone to throw to the Demmunists, Faucists, and assorted PERPS.


Do you mean curative as opposed to cure? My impression is that it’s a medical cautionary practice because claiming something is a cure would mean for everyone, at all times. For example, I think you said you did not get great results with IVM, but for someone else, it could be curative.

Wolf Moon

I’ve always used curative to mean “it cures”, and curing means “complete or almost complete reversal (see below). “Therapeutic”, “palliative”, and “treatment” do not require that something actually be cured.

Great point about ivermectin being SOMETIMES curative, but then here is what I would say.

If it’s not reliably curative, IMO it really shouldn’t be called curative.

I’m looking at it from more of a “degree of effectiveness” standpoint. Most things regarded as “curative” or “cures” in medicine need to reverse a full-blown-case of something, almost completely and generally promptly, for nearly ALL cases (perhaps with a few exceptions). Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine are, IMO, and by the description of most people in pharma or medicine, NOT actually “curative” for viruses. Viruses are notoriously hard to cure, and even treatment is surprising. Ivermectin is curative for infections by many parasites, but the antiviral activity of ivermectin simply isn’t curative, IMO – more like a good treatment – which allows natural disease resistance to take over.

Thus, IMO, using too strong a claim here gives defenders of Fauci their first straw man to embrace.


JWST Update. This just showed up on the NASA blog:

With major deployments complete, Webb continues its journey to its final halo orbit around L2. In the meantime, there are several smaller deployments in the next couple of weeks, which constitute the beginning of a several-month phase of aligning the telescope’s optics. This week, we have started the process of moving the mirror segments (all primary plus secondary) out of their stowed launch positions. For more details, here is Marshall Perrin from the Space Telescope Science Institute, home of the Webb Mission Operations Center:

“To support the movable mirrors during the ride to space, each of them has on its back three rigid metal pegs which can nestle into matching holder sockets in the telescope structure. Before launch, the mirrors were all positioned with the pegs held snug in the sockets, providing extra support. (Imagine Webb holding its mirrors tucked up close to its telescope structure, keeping them extra safe during the vibrations and accelerations of launch.) Each mirror now needs to be deployed out by 12.5 millimeters (about half an inch) to get the pegs clear from the sockets. This will give the mirrors ‘room to roam’ and let them be readied in their starting positions for alignment.

“Getting there is going to take some patience: The computer-controlled mirror actuators are designed for extremely small motions measured in nanometers. Each of the mirrors can be moved with incredibly fine precision, with adjustments as small as 10 nanometers (or about 1/10,000th of the width of a human hair). Now we’re using those same actuators instead to move over a centimeter. So these initial deployments are by far the largest moves Webb’s mirror actuators will ever make in space.

“And we don’t do them all at once. The mirror control system is designed to operate only one actuator at a time. That way is both simpler (in terms of the complexity of the control electronics) and safer (since computers and sensors can closely monitor each individual actuator as it works). Furthermore, to limit the amount of heat put into Webb’s very cold mirrors from the actuator motors, each actuator can only be operated for a short period at a time. Thus, those big 12.5-millimeter moves for each segment are split up into many, many short moves that happen one actuator at a time. Scripts sent from the Mission Operations Center will direct this process under human supervision, slowly and steadily moving one actuator at a time, taking turns between segments. At full speed, it takes about a day to move all the segments by just 1 millimeter. It’s about the same speed at which grass grows!

“This may not be the most exciting period of Webb’s commissioning, but that’s OK. We can take the time. During the days that we’re slowly deploying the mirrors, those mirrors are also continuing to slowly cool off as they radiate heat away into the cold of space. The instruments are cooling, too, in a gradual and carefully controlled manner, and Webb is also continuing to gently coast outwards toward L2. Slow and steady does it, for all these gradual processes that get us every day a little bit closer to our ultimate goal of mirror alignment.”

—Marshall Perrin, deputy telescope scientist, Space Telescope Science Institute

So they’re moving all of the mirrors out from “park” every day, one millimeter at a time.

Easy does it.

LOL! That took me a while to figure out!


I just told someone to get the legos off the stair landing.


Lol!!! Kiddo has a lot too. Every time he gets a new set i put it in a gallon or 2 gallon ziploc with the instructions. His cart overfloweth……

The REAL reason they call them LEGO is when they get stuck in your foot, they never LE-GO.. 🙂 ouch! The story about Leg Godt they tell on the tours is just a cover story 🙂

When Legoland first opened here in Günzburg, they had the “Legofabrik” where they gave tours showing how the bricks are made, and, way in the beginning, they actually had a machine making them (they also had an automatic pizza-maker in the pizza restaurant, where you could watch the various bits being assembled, the tomato sauce, cheese, etc. going splot on the crust…).

Anyway, they sold the different bricks in bulk, including large and rare pieces (2×20, the huge baseplates, odd colors, Duplo [also large bits], etc.), as well as parts for the Legomänner, so you could make your own characters. We had season tickets, so we got extra discounts and bought kilos of the stuff…. Lego wised up and raised the prices over the next few years, but we still have various sizes of foot-punchers, etc. 🙂

I think Legoland in CA also has the bulk sales. There’s also Lego’s education division which has some really interesting stuff…

And then there’s Mindstorms and LegoTechnik… some of those axles and gears REALLY hurt!

[A long time ago my son even built a church with a choir full of Legomänner and Legofrauen]…

The patent on the original Lego has long since expired, so printing odd bricks is a “thing” among 3D Printers. So, if you ever wanted a 3 x 5 block….


Lego CA does sell some bulk but its being managed very very badly. Still half the staff, durty, most things not reliably open in park if at all. Theres no lego store or even a Disney store nearby. Have to go to san diego and they are kinda small. Kiddo just got a new catalog and wants the “home alone house” set. Marveled at the Titanic set too. Pricey. They keep legos locked up at walmart too.

Cuppa Covfefe

I want the Quickee Mart from the Simpsons… it reminds me of when 7-11 (SpeeDee Mart) opened a store back in 1964-ish, and caused quite a stir. Their Slurpees were good (probably really unhealthy, but good, anyway)…

There’s also the (London) Tower Bridge, for which which some fellow designed an extension to make it a fully authentic model. That would also make it fully expensive, so it remains a dream 🙂 Have to watch out for all that dangerous infrastructure doncha know…

I think the Legolands were spun off from Lego to Merlin Entertainment, which let them go to pot, then Lego bought back not just the Legolands, but the whole Merlin outfit, which seems to have made a bad situation even worse 🙁

The bricks and kits are still nice, but overpriced. Over here people have them on eBay or the local version thereof, sometimes for really good prices. Give them a good wash, and they’re good to go… OTOH, we have enough already. Only need to get a 250v Lionel trafo (rare, but they do exist) and I’m done buying toys….erm…maybe… 🙂


Yes it is/was merlin. Really bad. 2 hotels at the Carlsbad legoland. You should google map it and see the reviews with photos from the past year.
Resale legos always disappear quick. Kiddo has 1 aunt who gives him legos, used and new.
He didnt want much for Christmas so i bought that new medieval castle and the harry potter chamber of secrets.
Those architecture sets are neat. They also are adding in more sets that use an app to activate something. I dont like that so much tho.


Oh, that’s fantastic! I have suffered the curse of the “Lego in the Night” many times!

Cuppa Covfefe

Legos In The Night 🙂

Legos in the night it’s just insane how
Wand’ring in the night I’m still in pain now
Plastic’s in my foot, will be the whole night through

Hiding on the floor, it was inviting
Just beyond the door, was out of sighting
Something I regret is I’d not worn a shoe

Legos in the night
Two lonely bricks, they were hidden in plain sight
Up to their tricks when they said their first hello from heel to broken toe
Sleep was just a glance away, now taken by mischance away
Two Legos in the night…..

(Apologies to Frank Sinatra, Charles Singleton, Eddie Snyder, Bert Kaempfert, Richard Kohnen, and the rest of the known and unknown universe)

N.B. From AZlyrics a fitting, erm, footnote:

This song was originally used under the title “Beddy Bye” as part of the instrumental score for the film “A Man Could Get Killed” (1966).

ICYMI, She saved the country today by refusing to get rid of the filibuster, essentially ending the Dems dream of federalizing elections.
And with Manchin stopping the BBB, we owe them both much gratitude for staving off the Communist takeover.


My guess is BOTH Sinema AND Manchi want NOTHING to do with both BBB AND killing filibuster.

So they talked and each took one issue to kill. Rather sure they’d BOTH vote against them if Cry’n Chuckie brought them up for a vote.

Greetings anons
Just a brief message for now.
Becoming BO was unexpected so bear with me, please.
QRESEARCH has been through a lot. Still standing, despite everything. Congrats to all who remain – this is the core of the core.
QR is not the same board it was two years ago. Needs some restoration but not overnight. If anons have suggestions, post here, but concrete suggestions are best put in META (not baker meta), so it’s all in one place. Shilly stuff will be deleted.
– BOARD REPORTS. Caught up with them & recent anon ban appeals. Unbanned all anons banned “for no reason.”
– BVs REMOVED. Board logs showed that only one BV has been active in the last five weeks and all he did was ban for no reason. Don’t think I have to explain why removed.
– NEW BV’s. All active participants on this board for years. Responsible anons who have proven their worth many times over.
Q asked in Oct 2020 asking us to clean up the ship.
This can and will be done. It will take time so plz be patient.
Many anons have asked about getting IPs unbanned. Don’t know if it’s possible/practical to unban previous bans, will check with admin. Meanwhile, get a VPN, just part of the toolkit.

Re: that Maxwell story, she is no longer trying to keep the names sealed, and now it’s up to a judge. I would hate to be in the judge’s shoes. Some of those people might feel pretty desperate.

The names are all allegedly high profile individuals, ranging from politicians to business leaders and members of the royal family, one of whom is rumored to be Prince Andrew. 

I wonder if Alan Dershowitz is one of them. I think Virginia Giuffre had accused him, and he denies any wrongdoing.

Where’s the orange jumper?


Looking for businesses to start TRASHING their internal injection mandates. Should start seeing this tomorrow morning. Increasing to an avalanche of sorts. It’s got to be common sense from an employer/company perspective.

  • This is a huge plus for logistics at all levels. Potentially trending to normal.


Mandatory injections for employees in the health care industry will increasingly be problematic.

  • Wonder IF the Feds will extend their injection mandate to patients with Medicare / Medicaid. Or a penalty for not being injected.
  • Wonder if the Feds will mandate health insurers, insuring Federal workers demand insured be vaccinated. Or a penalty for not being injected.


Truckers. SO I guess truckers operating between Canada and the US injection requirement IS in effect. Have we heard about impacts?

What is the trucker injection mandate effective 22 January?

Am I mixing this issue up?

Masks. So BiteMe is going buy masks for everyone? This IS bizarre, short sighted, stooopid.. IMO. THIS smacks of stoopid on the level of Ford’s “WIN” buttons. Get one now and wear it. Whip Inflation Now!

  • Make Masks mandatory some how. Americans will NOT comply. Are the masks reusable or require sanitizing after each use.
  • There has been an uptick in N95 mask chatter lately. After trashing N95 for a year, are push using N95s?
  • Cloth masks getting blasted in the news. Have they said what type of mask they are pushing?


Everyone gets a Covid test kit now? Well, that IS a sure fire way to SPIKE POSITIVES, flood doctor offices, clinics and ERs. Dumb asses they are.

My friend’s company (30k employees) sent out email Monday saying they were NOT requiring vax, BUT everyone had to send in their status and those that weren’t jabbed were going to have to take a weekly test. A saliva? test would be sent to them via UPS with return postage pre-paid. Said if SCOTUS ruled against Creepy, everything would be cancelled.

Saw where businesses had hired consultants to help navigate the issue. It was costing them big bucks, plus a fortune in pre-purchased tests…. Saliva test?


We’ll see MORE of these cancellations. Smacks of common sense.

Still a HIPAA violation for employer to ask and employees to reveal medical info to employer. No one raising kane about that! 🤬


They have a work-around: ☹️

Vaccination information is classed as P[ersonal] H[ealth] I[nformation] and is covered by the HIPAA Rules. However, HIPAA only applies to HIPAA-covered entities – healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses – and their business associates. If an employer asks an employee to provide proof that they have been vaccinated in order to allow that individual to work without wearing a facemask, that is not a HIPAA violation as HIPAA does not apply to most employers.

It would not be a HIPAA violation for an employer to ask an employee’s healthcare provider for proof of vaccination. It would however be a HIPAA violation for the employee’s healthcare provider to disclose that information to the employer unless the individual had provided authorization to do so. If an employer is running their own vaccination program and an employee chooses to have their vaccine privately, that individual may have to authorize their healthcare provider to disclose certain information about their vaccine to their employer as proof that they have been vaccinated.


An employee has to volunteer their status and an employer cannot reveal their status as the employee could file a civil action for injunctive relief.


Adds another question to the mix. All these hospitals trying to get non vax health care workers back to work because of critical shortages in the health care arena, what becomes of that? On top of that there will be more that refuse boosters, what then?

The BQ Project

Valerie was very kind to actually read yesterday’s “Adventures in Biscuit”, and note that there are only eight ounces in a cup. Of course, I was sitting there with my beer glass that I just filled out of a 12-ounce can….going, “whut?”

So, as those talking GPSs are fond of saying when you elect not to take its suggested exit because there appears to be some ongoing disaster, “recalculating….”

The way things are going, someone’s going to tell me that eight pence don’t make a shilling. At least I didn’t crash a lander on Mars.


New calculation:

The water measure, then, is 2/3c x 15/16 (milkization) x 1/8 (single biscuit), or 30/384 cups. Since a cup is 12 8 ounces, and an ounce is 2 Tbsp, a cup is 24 16 Tbsp, and the water measure would be 1.875 (16 x 30 / 384 =) 1.25 Tbsp, or drops shy of an ounce. Just for fun, we can multiply that by 8 and get 15, then “milkify” it by multiplying by 16/15 to get 16….and 16/24 of a cup is what the recipe asked for.


There are four biscuits I’d currently like to do, but I’ll likely only have time for two tonight. First, I’d like to re-run the “standard biscuit” using revised fluid levels, and see if I don’t get a pancake like I did yesterday. Second, I’d like to try to convert everything back into non-weight measures and see if it still works (if it does, that will be my first recommended biscuit for Scott). Third, (and I can do this with either recipe above if they work) is to do a “Scarborough Biscuit” including parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme. And, fourth, I’d like to do a garlic cheese biscuit.


OK, re-running “standard biscuit” — 34g BQ, 2g NFM (mixed together dry), then 1.25 Tbsp water. No preheat to the t-o.

Not bad! Bottom was tanned instead of brown, took 13 minutes rather than the anticipated 10, broke into real pieces with crumbs. I’ll see about upping the NDM in subsequent batches.


For #2, the BQ box says that 1/3c BQ is 40g. We’re using a calculated 34g, so let’s fudge it up to 40 (+15%).

My scale weighed 1 flat Tbsp of NDM at 6g. We’d calculated 2g, so it sounds like 1 heaping tsp should be just about right, even iwith the 15% increase in BQ.

The shotglass with 1.25 Tbsp of water can probably go up to 1.5 Tbsp.

1/3c BQ, 1 heaping tsp of NDM, 1.5 Tbsp water….it needed a few extra drops….


OK, this one is ready for Scott to try. Couple of notes — I’m still cooking on aluminum foil. NDM does not want to be heaping, so don’t figure on traveling too far with it. And it could have used more water.

As to the latter, you’re going to pour your water into your mix, and they’ll ignore each other. So you need to smoosh the solid into the liquid, over and over, until it forms a “dough”. The dough ball will start picking up dry pieces off the mixing bowl as you smoosh it around and be sort-of like putty. If you put in too much water, it doesn’t try to stay a ball any more and will start sticking to things. The difference between too little and too much is very slight — a matter of drops — so you have to smoosh it around quite a bit before you think it deserves any more water.

No Bisquick yet.

But I can copy the posts for future reference 👍


Just remember that one of the advantages of doing it at nearly the same time is that I’ll have plenty of screwups I’ve done recently to help you debug your process. Furthermore, if you practice a bit before TSHTF (when you won’t be able to buy another box), wasting a bit won’t be that big of a deal. That said, I’m not trying to pressure you into anything.

We had a family down the block that swore by powdered milk, and the way they used it was to mix up a quart or two at a time, and let it “settle” in the fridge for a while. That improved both the taste and the texture (stirring or swishing it around every so often), and there were no clumps or bits floating on the top or sinking to the bottom.

It’s the same thing as letting a marinade rest, or making a seasoning mix ahead of time: let the flavor(s) meld…

In a real shortage situation (or on a survival hike, BTDT) taste is not a prime consideration, but every little bit helps…

LOL I’m glad you saw the “correction” (something that might happen less than once in a Blue Moon for Me here at the Q-Tree). Hope this course correction solves your pancake issues 😉


BREAKING: Waukesha County Judge Deals HUGE BLOW to Democrats — Bans Use of Absentee Ballot Drop Boxes in Wisconsin

Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bohren issued a summary judgment decision on Thursday banning ballot drop boxes in the state. Judge Bohren also banned illegal ballot harvesting in the state.

The Wisconsin Elections Commission (WEC) issued memos to Wisconsin clerks in March and August of 2020 encouraging their use, stating that absentee ballots do not need to be mailed by the voter or delivered by the voter, in person, to the municipal clerk, but instead could be dropped into a drop box. According to WEC, ballot drop boxes can be unstaffed, temporary, or permanent.

This advice was contrary to state law.

Joe Biden won the state after a stunning drop of Biden only ballots in the middle of the night following the election.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law & Liberty (WILL) filed a lawsuit on behalf of two Waukesha County voters in June 2021 challenging the legal status of absentee ballot drop boxes after WEC issued unlawful guidance to clerks, in 2020, encouraging the use of absentee ballot drop boxes, and telling voters that anyone else can return their ballot for them.

At least the two voters were not shut out for “lack of standing.”

What is amazing to me is that people can break the law at will, in ways that affect the entire country and even the world, and the only way to deal with it is for someone to file a lawsuit. IMO, those people should have been arrested for breaking the law as soon as it became known. I don’t know who would be in charge of that — maybe the state attorney general? And if that’s a Dem, we’re out of luck and people get away with the crime of the century.

Nobody wants to point LE guns at Democrats for “non-violent crimes”, but that is in fact what has to happen. They need to be PEACEFULLY JAILED BY THE THOUSANDS.



Did the Canadian truck driver injection mandate get cancelled, by accident, earlier today? If so, I missed all of that drama.

Oh Snap, Canadian Trucker Vaccine Mandate is Back On – All Cross Border Truckers Will Need Proof of Vaccine Starting January 15th
This is crazy. The Canadian government is saying someone made a mistake when they announced they were rescinding the vaccine mandate for cross border commercial truck drivers. As of right NOW, the January 15th deadline is in place. All truck drivers from the U.S. or Canada will have to prove their vaccinated status in order to cross the border.
