Dear KAG: 20220316 Open Thread

Two weeks to flatten the curve….

Two years later:

The Republican Guard Prepares Offensive Weapons Against MAGA Influence – The Right Wing of the National UniParty Begins Assembling

Yes, it’s SD from OT, but he reports what is being missed:

With the Sea Island professionally Republican convention completed we now enter that time in Republican politics where the people who assembled for the gathering begin to seed the next election narrative.   The timing is not coincidental, yet few people pay attention, that’s where we come in.

The backstory on last week’s Sea Island meeting IS HERE.  We all know these people, though sometimes we can be distracted by their Machiavellian schemes and manipulations.  Exactly on cue, the Associated Press steps up to deliver the advanced revelations of the quiet discussion:

(VIA AP) –  Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan is planning trips to Iowa and New Hampshire. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., is considering a rough timeline for a potential presidential announcement. And allies of Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo., are openly talking up her White House prospects.

More than two years before the next presidential election, a shadow primary is already beginning to take shape among at least three fierce Republican critics of former President Donald Trump to determine who is best positioned to occupy the anti-Trump lane in 2024.

Their apparent willingness to run — even if Trump does, as is widely expected — represents a shift from previous years when “Never Trump” operatives failed to recruit any GOP officeholders to challenge the incumbent president. But with the 2024 contest almost in view, the question is no longer whether one of Trump’s prominent Republican critics will run, but how many will mount a campaign and how soon they will announce.

Please visit OT for the rest of the piece.

It looks like the good little globalists are going to give it a shot: staying in power.

This is not something new in America. In the 1960s, such machinations were noticed by a prelate. This quote is part of the answer. When the globalists make their moves, it is almost always in the mode of leaving God out of the equation.

[Archbishop Fulton] Sheen said, “Patriotism is a virtue that was allied to the old virtue of the Greeks and Latin called pietas, meaning love of God, love of neighbor, love of country. And when one goes out, all go out. When we no longer have love of God, we no longer have love of country.”

Sheen continued, “We started our country with a revolution. Revolution is in the air today. In fact, the arguments, today, are that we started that way, why not continue it? We do live in America with a revolutionary tradition. But the question is, what kind of revolution should we have?”

He then tells the story of a soldier who fought at Concord. The soldier was asked why he fought, why he went to Concord. The answer came, “For one reason, that we might govern ourselves.” Sheen goes on to say, “Now, what’s the revolution of today? VIOLENCE! Violence just for the sake of violence … the new type of revolt, which involves the destruction of everything in the past. And these people who are actuating violence today, claim they are in line with the American Revolution. THEY ARE NOT!”

The point Venerable Fulton Sheen makes is that our nation was founded, and has thrived, by the understanding that our rights and liberties come from God. The revolution he was viewing in the 1960s, and we are seeing reenacted today, is a rejection of God, in favor of man.

Yes, we the people are revolting, albeit quietly at this point. So far, we have not given the globalists a reason to really crack down on us here in the USA. Why? Well, January 6, 2021, is part of it. So is the matter of mass surveillance as explained by BioClandestine and Anonymous Conservative in any number of his posts.

Vox Day looks at the failure of the Canadian Convoy to accomplish anything. The biggest problem we face is people presenting this narrative that our problem is we face bad leaders, or corrupt leaders, or even “the Elites” who are bent on dominating us. It feeds into this natural sense that you meet your enemy on their battlefield. So Trudeau is the enemy, and you go to Ottawa and face him down. But the truth is, if you see “them,” they are not the real enemy. They are a distraction. The real enemy is thus far unknown to us. It is a shadow, it is a gust of ether, that evaporates into nothing when you look at it, because that is how this enemy is designed. It is a covert intelligence operation, and it is organized. Read Vox’s account, and then understand that on the other side were intelligence professionals who had surveillance files on everyone present, flowsheets showing interrelationships among convoy members, a plan to infiltrate the right people into the right places to create chaos, and more importantly they long ago seized complete situational awareness and control over government. They knew everyone in government, had decades of surveillance files on all of them, blackmail on probably all of them, and they installed all of them in office in rigged elections. The real battlefield, is the political establishment, not the hearts and minds of the people. The real war, should have been to infiltrate all those truckers into government positions, political parties, local politics, and to expose the other side’s surveillance to the people. Instead everybody drove to Ottawa and spent a week sitting around in their trucks, hoping people whose votes don’t even count would like them. It was the completely wrong battlefield. We are in an intelligence war. Until that is exposed by exposing the surveillance, nothing will change.

And that is the main issue we all seem to face. A surveillance state that we didn’t vote for is hiding among us. They don’t want the patriot sorts in the government at all, so the fix is in to keep the globalist WEF trainees from “losing” at the polls even as we try to keep the protest and revolt peaceful and non-violent.

However, it would be short sighted to claim that the convoy(s) achieved nothing. If anything, they reminded the globalists that the people are no longer asleep completely.


And guess what. The Freedom Convoy is still a thing.

Have a good day y’all.

MATTHEW 20:17-28

17And as Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the twelve disciples aside, and on the way he said to them, 18“Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man will be delivered to the chief priests and scribes, and they will condemn him to death, 19and deliver him to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day.” 20Then the mother of the sons of Zeb’edee came up to him, with her sons, and kneeling before him she asked him for something. 21And he said to her, “What do you want?” She said to him, “Command that these two sons of mine may sit, one at your right hand and one at your left, in your kingdom.” 22But Jesus answered, “You do not know what you are asking. Are you able to drink the cup that I am to drink?” They said to him, “We are able.” 23He said to them, “You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.” 24And when the ten heard it, they were indignant at the two brothers. 25But Jesus called them to him and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great men exercise authority over them. 26It shall not be so among you; but whoever would be great among you must be your servant, 27and whoever would be first among you must be your slave; 28even as the Son of man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

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.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another.

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

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.

Salvation Army update. I decided to check in on The Salvation Army to see if they went broke after going woke. Quite the opposite. They are now claiming that 2021 was their “second most successful year of fundraising in history.” Source

comment image

I’m skeptical. Even putting aside the whole “woke” scandal, I literally did not see any Red Kettles this year during the Christmas season. While searching for Salvation Army news in December, I saw SA chapters from across the country begging for Red Kettle volunteers. These same articles all had apocalyptic predictions about “fundraising being down 20% for the year,” and how they’re losing money because they don’t have people to man the kettles. So even if we accept the “social media is an echo chamber and nobody cared if they went woke” argument, the situation many local SAs were laying out in December was that they literally did not have the manpower to collect donations. And somehow, despite this lack of manpower and noticeable lack of Red Kettles, we are all supposed to believe that this was their “second most successful year of fundraising in history.” 


Here’s how The Salvation Army conveniently explains it away:

Much of the growth is due to gifts made outside of the physical Red Kettles. To account for changing shopping and donation preferences, The Salvation Army has expanded digital giving methods, introduced cashless in-person giving options, launched cryptocurrency donations, and continues to encourage monthly contributions. As a result, digital gifts have grown by 57 percent over the last five years.

To be honest, I believe The Salvation Army’s claim in a lawyerly way. I’d wager that following the “go woke” disaster, actual real people did indeed stop donating, and the billionaires and intelligence agencies who push the “woke” narrative picked up lost donations, plus an added bonus for the trouble. After all, they can’t have tax cattle believing that their boycotts actually have an effect. They can’t have the tax cattle seeing how unpopular this “woke” garbage actually is. The narrative must be propped up at all costs. And it’s easier than ever to hide where the money came now that the official narrative is, “the money came from online donations and not the kettles.”

I do not buy the narrative that the majority of the American public is still supporting this garbage organization. I am never donating anything to the SA ever again whether that’s money or household items. I am never going to volunteer for them. I am never going to shop in their stores again. Let the glowing turds in our government and Blackrock pick up the loss, and prop them up like they do our illegitimate White House occupant.

100% agreed. The idea that the Salvation Army didn’t take a bath on wokeness is not plausible. AT ALL.


Once it was a church, devoted to saving souls where they needed saving. Now, it’s just another corrupt NGO.

Gail Combs

Taken over by the Commie Globalists just like all the other NGOs.

It looks like Hillsdale College is about the only decent place left to donate to. (Ad yes I know there are a few others)


When the news started getting out about them they said they were concerned about the reduction in donations. So either people took pity on them or the wealthy took up the slack.


The woke swamp picked up the slack as they sank further into the slime.

Sylvia Avery

Hi Sadie, thanks for the update. I tend to agree with your analysis. I hate that they have taken something good like the SA and turned it into some kind of hideous leftist pile of garbage.

I gave them a fair bit throughout the years.

Never again. Not a dime.

Cuppa Covfefe

They killed Scouting, too. First, the Girl Scouts, with lesbianism and Planned (un)Parenthood, then the Boy Scouts, with watered-down requirements, wokeness, and homosexuality (and gay leaders it appears)…

Two very important shapers of youth corrupted by the deep state and the pink machine.

The commies and the devil always start with the youth. Hitler often used young girls as spokes-bots… (probably Greta-the-greenhearted’s inspiration)…


Mao used young people to kill their own parents and the elder. All for the cause.
I read that someplace.

Sylvia Avery

Yes they did. Horrible what they did to scouting.

Good point about the commies starting with the youth. It’s quite effective.

Sadie Slays

Additional thought. If The Salvation Army truly did achieve “second best fundraising year in history” based on help from the masses, then you’d think that headline would be plastered everywhere. The press release I linked to was dated March 11th, so it should have been recent headlines, too. Instead, I had to go out of my way to find it. Right now, if you search for “Salvation Army” on Google and click the “News” tab, this is the top headline:

Former Salvation Army program director charged child porn possession

The rest of the headlines are Ukraine relief stuff. Anyone still thinking of donating to this trash organization should know their money is funding CRT, pedophiles, and foreign warzones.

Betting Millions were siphoned off from the Covid slush funds to Salvation Army.



Democrats diverting funds from taxpayers via congressional spending.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Good theory, likewise explaining “woke compensation”.



Let the leftist turds fund them until they get tired of it. They are dead to us.


I would far rather donate local. I give my household items to a locally-run donation center rather than the Goodwill up the road. And if I have cash to donate, my favorite way is to give it to a school-lunch program, to feed a kid whose account is $0. They still get fed a peanut butter sandwich if they are out of money, but that’s just another thing to get teased about.

I’d rather my own town get anything I might have to give.


That is what I do. I give my stuff to a no kill animal shelter. They have a garage sale every year.


Good idea!


Every time i donated stuf, nice clean sometimes collectibles, packed with care, the guys repeatedly would take everything andvthrow it in the trailer. Different guys so it was just the didnt care.
I started donating to a local place that does care and it always grateful.


Let the glowing turds in our government and Blackrock pick up the loss, and prop them up like they do our illegitimate White House occupant.

Nice thought, but we know they steal taxpayer funds for these purposes.


I’d wager they got a lot of biden covid bux, kickbacks from wokedness


the salvos, Red Cross and st Vincent de Paul charities have shat the bed here. Red Cross, alone , raised 96 million for the bushfire victims in an appeal that was specifically for them. They then kept half back for” a rainy day”. Hey arseholes – it’s been raining!
many will never donate to them again

There is ONLY ONE WAY.
Alice & Wonderland.

If we knew EXACTLY what this meant, we would know what is going on.

Gail Combs

I can no longer find it, but when checking out a Q post recently, I found ALICE = OPIUM in slang.

There are indications that China and the UK are STILL PARTNERS IN THE DRUG TRADE. However it is long and convoluted with only hints

Is Alice in Wonderland about drugs?

What drugs are in Alice in Wonderland? Alice drinks potions and eats pieces of mushroom to change her physical state. The caterpillar smokes an elaborate water pipe. The whole atmosphere of the story is so profoundly disjointed from reality – surely drugs must have had an influence? After all this was the era of legal opium use.

Opium, The Romantics, and Alice in Wonderland

Alice in Wonderland was published in 1865. As a British citizen, opium user, and partaking in a culture where 83% of the population habitually used opium, wars over its availability would have had an effect on Carroll’s life. The third pervasive reference to opium comes from Alice’s warped idea of time when she falls down the rabbit hole.

More than two years before the next presidential election, a shadow primary is already beginning to take shape among at least three fierce Republican critics of former President Donald Trump to determine who is best positioned to occupy the anti-Trump lane in 2024.

Their apparent willingness to run — even if Trump does, as is widely expected — represents a shift from previous years when “Never Trump” operatives failed to recruit any GOP officeholders to challenge the incumbent president.

They appear delusional, but I don’t think they are. Have they seen the crowds at rallies? Undoubtedly. So how could they possibly think they could beat PDJT in a primary? What do they have up their sleeves?

Maybe they’re just blinded by greed, power, and hate. The people clearly want what PDJT wants for this country. Those RINOs do not. They do not care about the people or the country.


“They appear delusional, but I don’t think they are. Have they seen the crowds at rallies?”


They’re not in it to win it, they’re in it to wreck it.

Besides, Dick Cheney in drag is even less popular than Dick Cheney.

There are diseases that poll higher than Dick Cheney in drag.

And Kinzinger is below her / it.


They are desperate to that their crimes are getting exposed and need to stall the MAGA movement as long as possible. Bet they will use any trick legal and illegal to do that.
We need to watch their every move.

Gail Combs

REMEMBER THE DHS is NOW considering those who speak out against the Clot Shot or the War in Ukraine with Russia AS TRAITOR/TERRORISTS…

They may be hoping that Trump gets taken out by the use of a FELONY and CORRUPT JUDGES/JURIES.

I wonder if POTUS saw this coming and that is why he has NEVER said anything bad about the Clot Shot?


Speaking for myself, I’m noticing how every thing that they try has or is failing.

Take the COVID narrative, for example.

I therefore have every reasonable expectation that this, too, will/would fail.

And it is a certainty that Trump et al. saw it coming.


They got W elected.

Edit. AND, BiteMe fraudulently installed.

Last I heard of wheatietoo back in Nov/Dec she was dealing with an illness. Is she still struggling with it?


Have not seen anything here. I take this as good news, since bad news travel fast.

My guess, quite possible some “off channel” chatter.

Wheatie was, IS a treasure. Wheatie’s Tree Houses were so cool AND memorable. Miss her much.


Not sure if wheatietoo falls in the category of not participating per se. I suspect she instructed boss not to speak about the reason for her absence. Definitely misses her as I’m sure we all do.

The Globalists’ Next Move


What Could Go Wrong? (sarc)

Gail Combs

(This may be why it was so necessary to get Biden in place)

 the Supreme Court since the time of FDR betrayed this country.
Treaty Politics and the Rise of Executive Agreements: International Commitments in a System of Shared Powers

Executive agreements do not require super-majority support in the Senate as do formal Article II treaties. Since the 1940s, the vast majority of international agreements have been completed by presidents as executive agreements rather than as treaties. This major policy evolution occurred without changes to the Constitution, though Supreme Court decisions and practice by the political branches have validated the change. This has led some scholars to conclude that the treaty power “has become effectively a Presidential monopoly”

(Franck and Weisband 1979: 135; see also Corwin 1984).


U.S. law distinguishes what it calls <b>treaties, which are derived from the Treaty Clause of the United States Constitution, from congressional-executive agreements and executive agreements. All three classes are considered treaties under international law; they are distinct only from the perspective of internal United States law</b>…

…So for instance, <b>if the US Supreme Court found that a treaty violated the US constitution, it would no longer be binding on the US under US law; but it would still be binding on the US under international law, unless its unconstitutionality was manifestly obvious to the other states [nations] at the time the treaty was contracted</b>… (no longer on the internet)

IF a president signs a treaty OTHER countries consider it VALID. Therefore it completely depends on WHAT type of enforcement is contained within the treaty itself. For example the World Trade Organization (WTO) has TEETH!!

Instead of the usual trade treaties for the first time a world organization, WTO, with tough sanction and enforcement powers, was formed. More important, decision making would be secret, with no oversight. The most vital issues of economic life on the planet were to be decided behind closed doors.

Under WTO rules, countries or Corporations can challenge another’s laws. The case is heard by a tribunal of three trade bureaucrats (corporate lawyers). There is no conflict of interest rules binding them, and the names of the judges are kept secret. There is no rule that the judges of WTO respect any national laws, the three judges meet in secret and all court documents are confidential and cannot be published.

I consider the WTO the trial run for ‘Global Governance’ since it overrides national sovereignty and allows the judges of WTO to overrule national laws.

Lurking Lawyer here, again. Treepers, there are three levels of international US accords under the Constitution:

1. Highest is true Treatises, requiring 2/3 Senate approval. The definition of such was provided by sec. State Thomas Jefferson under first Pres George Washington administration : irrevocable save by mutual consent (I paraphrase).

2. Second is Pacts. Still requiring acts of majorities in both houses of congess to enable. Different from constitutitonal treaties because must contain a unilateal opt out. NAFTA is a pact.

3. Third is lowly executive agreements, granted under Article 2 Presidential powers in just three narrow categories ( based on a long SCOTUS adjudication history):

1. As a subset of foreign policy (e.g. recognizing Ambassadors) based on A2s2.1

2. As commander in chief (e.g. NATO) based on A2s2.2

3 As Article 2 Section 3 Take care laws are faithfully executed based on A2s3 next to last clause. The Obama Paris accord is #3, but could be relegated to #2 by Trump invoking the predecessor UNFCCC Pact clauses.

Analysis Previously posted here and elsewhere in detail.

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ.

Not the only ones. Anyone speaking out against what’s happened in the Donbas are also labeled seditionists. Two very good videos here, not long, that high light the 8 yrs of constant harassments and shelling experienced along the border.

Great news if we discount draught.

I know Texas has seen little to no rain through out the winter months and nothing notable during the fall months. March normally brings on about four days of light rain, but it keeps the way it has we won’t see that. Texas has not experienced a serious draught for over a decade and with it’s large influx of people the last few years any draught, even moderate will have a serious impact.


(actually, I was just being a smart-alec)


Yes, that’s what the “right ? ” thing was for. Didn’t miss it. Just pointing out possible trouble.

I’ll also be a smart aleck.

What’s the issue with draft in Texas? (“Draught” is the British spelling of draft; “drought” is what you wanted–it even is spelled that way in your link.)

What I’d like to see is that list of Congress-Critters that are pwned by the RED Chinese.

Merge that list with the one that Russia has (judging by this), and D.C. would be all but emptied in record time.

The Founding Fathers must be rolling in their graves…

That could also apply to the Flynn – Byne/Clemment-Wood mess.

Remember Byrne said he helped the FBI in 2005 & 2006 “… it was my honor to help them TAKE DOWN A COUPLE HUNDRED PEOPLE ON WALL STREET….”

He also said it was Peter Strzok who contacted him about helping the FBI a third time (The Russian Spy was #2)
“…Byrne said it was political espionage. CONDUCTED AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON, Rubio, Cruz and Trump….”

That bit about Wall Street is very interesting….

Gail Combs

Hope you see the other two companion comments.

I should also add this:

It looks like Byrne was helping the Deep State kill off the ‘Honest’ or should I say intelligent bankers leaving just the WOKE bankers. And WHO DO THOSE BANKERS CONTROL??

 Of mergers and acquisitions each costing $1 million or more, there were just 10 in 1970; in 1980, there were 94; in 1986, there were 346. A third of such deals in the 1980’s were hostile. The 1980’s also saw a wave of giant leveraged buyouts. Mergers, acquisitions and L.B.O.’s, which had accounted for less than 5 percent of the profits of Wall Street brokerage houses in 1978, ballooned into an estimated 50 percent of profits by 1988...

THROUGH ALL THIS, THE HISTORIC RELATIONSHIP between product and paper has been turned upside down. Investment bankers no longer think of themselves as working for the corporations with which they do business. These days, corporations seem to exist for the investment bankers….

In fact, investment banks are replacing the publicly held industrial corporations as the largest and most powerful economic institutions in America….

THERE ARE SIGNS THAT A VICIOUS spiral has begun, as each corporate player seeks to improve its standard of living at the expense of another’s.

Corporate raiders transfer to themselves, and other shareholders, part of the income of employees by forcing the latter to agree to lower wages.

January 29, 1989 New York Times

I worked for one who was a great company. Before they had to fight off repeated ATTACKS by Corporate Raiders they HAD NO DEBT. The CEO suddenly died at his desk🤔 the company was then taken over, dismembered and the factories boxed up and shipped overseas.

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep. The “Hostile Takeover” is something that boggles the mind. Why that is legal I have no idea… Icahn, et. al. come to mind, as well as the Heuschrecken KKR (Kohlberg, Kravis, and Roberts)… I’ve had the misfortune of working for three high-tech companies that were pitilessly dismembered by KKR, and saw lives, careers, and families destroyed in the process, all because those soulless thieves wanted some more money and power and fame (or perhaps infamy)…

With all the mergers, etc., it looks like they’re aiming for only one company per “branch” or area of corporate expertise. Then they can roll them all up into “Satan Incorporated” and really raise Hell (figuratively and literally)…

Gail Combs

The result was transnational corporations CONTROLLED by a small number of financial institutions.

I keep posting this for that reason:

0ctober 2011 The Network of Global Corporate Control


The structure of the control network of transnational corporations [TNCs] affects global market competition and financial stability…. We present the first investigation of the architecture of the international ownership network, along with the computation of the control held by each global player. We find that transnational corporations form a giant bow-tie structure and that a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions. This core can be seen as an economic “super-entity” that raises new important issues both for researchers and policy makers.




Concentration of Control

…. In principle, one could expect inequality of control to be comparable to inequality of income across households and firms, since shares of most corporations are publicly accessible in stock markets. In contrast, we find that only 737 top holders accumulate 80% of the control over the value of all TNCs (see also the list of the top 50 holders in Table S1 of Appendix S1)….This means that network control is much more unequally distributed than wealth. In particular, the top ranked actors hold a control ten times bigger than what could be expected based on their wealth. The results are robust with respect to the models used to estimate…

“… the top ranked actors hold a control ten times bigger than what could be expected based on their wealth….”

I connected that to the fact that pension funds and mutual funds own stock THAT IS VOTED BY THE FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS AND NOT BY US ‘little folk’.

This explains why corporations have all gone woke in a coordinated fashion. It is because they ARE COORDINATED! Also do not forget the board of directors are interlocking and swap people all the time.

Financial Core of the Transnational Corporate Class

The following chart shows the rankings in trillions of dollars of assets managed for the top thirty-five asset management firms in the world.

Table 1: The World’s Top 35 Asset Management Firms, in Trillions of Dollars (2012)

[LIST of 35]

…The 161 directors of the thirteen mostly centralized/largest asset management firms represent the central core of international capital. As such, these 161 people share a common goal of maximum return on investments for their clients and will seek to achieve returns sometimes by any means necessary—legal or not.

Authorities have deemed the largest banks “too big to fail,” and have responded to the banks’ criminal activities with weak reforms and no prosecutions.23 The American government has refused to prosecute any officials from the multitude of banks who have laundered billions of dollars for illegal drug cartels. Powerful banking corporations, such as JPMorgan Chase, have continually refused to comply with American anti-money laundering (AML) laws.24

This refusal to prosecute is often hailed as an honorable move that serves to protect all individuals from devastation. Thus, Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer explained the refusal to prosecute the bank HSBC:

Had the US authorities decided to press criminal charges, HSBC would almost certainly lost its banking license in the US, the future of the institution would have been under threat and the entire banking system would have been destabilized.25

Not only are these powerful corporations considered “too big to fail,” they appear to have become too big to tell apart. Traditionally, banks have been understood as separate entities, competing against one another in order to entice consumers to deposit funds and invest. Such competition theoretically forces banks to compete to offer the best rates. However, in reality, these banks found that competing against one another was less profitable than working together. Realizing that their interests lie side by side, the financial core of the TCC have been highly motivated to join forces—legally or not—to manipulate laws, policies, and governments to their advantage…





These 161 directors are part of Rothkopf’s superclass. Given their control over $23.91 trillion, Western governments and international policy bodies serve the interests of this financial core of the TCC. Wars are initiated to protect their interests, and to promote the free flow of global capital for investment anywhere that returns are possible. Identifying the people with such power and influence is an important part of any democratic movement seeking to protect our commons so that all humans might share and prosper.37……

Yes it is. Practically all the companies I & Hubby worked for, from Family owned to fortune 500 ARE GONE!

We are talking about some companies that were around 100 years old or more.


What back channels are those?

Projecting again…
Kanal 00…


I don’t know what Kanal 00 is. I responded to TT because I have often, over many months, wanted to ask the same question. And I’m glad it was asked.


Commonly there are references to unnamed sources. Any more, while those sources may be accurate, I look at them with all the weight of, “anonymous”.

This is NOT intended as a ding. But referenced sources matter, for believably, credibility… Otherwise it remains an opinion, which is also fine.


I’m only talking about the consistent reference to “mystery” sources.


To clarify, I’m not saying anyone is wrong. I’m just asking, when you refer to back channels, what those are so we can all access the same information and make our own judgments.


Thanks for those sources. It would help if people would cite the source when presenting any piece of info or opinion.

I have not “dismissed” any of those sources. I do state opinions about what any source says, as I am doing now.

“Differences circled in neon” have been shown over and over to be faked, tricks of lighting, mistakes, and the like.

“Body double possibilites” do exist when someone is at a distance and not interacting with people who know them well. For example, I believe Biden riding a bike in a helmet could be a body double. But RBG working closely with her SCOTUS colleagues and her staff, no way. Hillary talking with people she knows, no way. None of us would be fooled in such situations.

Videos from someone on the street in D.C. are to be taken over the word of every Congressman who works there? Not one of the conservatives would alert us that something is not right at the WH? None of the journalists who report on the WH would say anything? The conspiracy is so big that even Steve Doocy is going along with it? IMO, that is not credible, in the least.

Oh my, now it’s the vapors.

I’ll just add, any “channel” (or account) is an anonymous person(s) – unless it isn’t. The difference is keeping it a mystery, rather than pointing people in a direction to investigate for themselves.

As in connect the dots.

too many people are only looking at the surface or what they want to see

There has to be a balance. If we discount everyone’s actions as being part of a plan, then we will miss evidence that is right in front of our faces. We will live in a world where nothing is real and no one is who they seem to be. That is the surest way to get drawn in to schemes that are destructive to our cause. It is how those with evil schemes gain people’s trust. Sometimes people really are just working in their own interests while saying they’re working for the country (Congress, anyone?).

There is no good reason for the shortcomings of the Maricopa audit. There is no explanation that would justify keeping Dr. Shiva from being able to put his findings in the report. No good will come from that. And there are MANY such occurrences that we will allow if we think it’s all part of a grand scheme. The word delusion comes to mind. We can’t allow ourselves to be deluded.

The country is not being run from a fake WH on a movie set. The entire Congress, all the staff, all foreign visitors, etc. are not working at a different location. Yet, we were told that that was probably the case and that it was proof of something. RBG lived until she actually died, right before her funeral. There are no body doubles that can fool people up close who know the actual person well.

We have to guard against becoming sheep, ourselves, because believing some of the things I see here makes us play right into their hands.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The fundamental problem with the whole “devolution” theory is that there is no way, even in principle, to disprove it.

Any evidence against it is dismissed as “fake” or “disinformation” that is part of “the plan.”

Donald Trump could drop dead, and they would merely maintain that he faked his death for some reason, and it’s part of “the plan.” Since they won’t tell us what the plan is or even when it will come to fruition, there’s no way to test it.

A theory that cannot be disproved even in principle is garbage. As one wag once said, it isn’t even wrong, it’s at a lower level of truth value than just being wrong would make it. It’s instead what philosophers call an “arbitrary assertion” which sounds like a mild term but is in fact a label for claims that can neither be proved nor disproved so they can, and should be, ignored as having no relation to reality.

Last edited 1 year ago by SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Exactly. IMO there is a difference between Q saying “trust the plan” and what a lot of people are saying today. Nowadays, everything is believed to be part of a plan, so nothing is real. Watching that unfold is akin to our sitting enraptured in front of a TV. In that scenario, we do not use our judgment and just take whatever is fed to us. We think what they want us to think. We become sheep and tools of the dark side.

I believe the white hats did and do have a plan. I do not think that plan involves body doubles up close, fake movie sets, people faking their own deaths, people dying and others making us think they’re still alive, sabotaging election audits, having feuds with other patriots, etc. Sometimes things really are just what they seem to be.

As for patriots pretending to be something they’re not, that is always part of spying and undercover work. But there needs to be a good reason for it. I don’t buy the notion that when patriots mistreat each other and lie about each other, damaging someone’s reputation and very livelihood, it is all part of a plan and we just can’t see the reason for it yet. I don’t buy the notion that patriots taking huge donations with no accountability is just part of a plan. People need to be held accountable.

I agree that we need to recognize and guard against arbitrary assertions. They could very well come back to bite us.


Wow 👍🏻 Superb.


A theory that cannot be disproved even in principle is garbage.


No wonder you cannot believe in God. To you, he is “garbage”.

And yet faith in the unprovable unseen is the key.

Of course, one first has to believe it is possible even if it cannot be proven or disproven.

faith = trust

”Do not let the world overcome you.”

Hate to see an otherwise decent person miss out on the greatest, biggest truth of all. Sad to see it happen, but you aren’t the first and won’t be the last.

Lord, save this man from himself. For your glory and honor, and our thanksgiving. Amen.


God isn’t a theory, that is an insult. God just is.

Cuppa Covfefe

Read his comment again. Or perhaps “research” it. Seems the point was missed…

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

You basically decided that because I think any *theory* you cannot disprove even in principle is garbage, then I must think *God* is garbage.

Whatever he might be, Yahweh isn’t a theory. However, the proposition “Yahweh exists” is a theory.

It would be like confusing Ukraine–the physical reality of that big piece of land and the people within it–with the proposition “Ukraine exists.”

Of course it’s easy enough to prove that Ukraine exists, and (in principle) plenty of ways to test to see if it doesn’t. Like going to those coordinates and seeing if there are a lot of Ukrainians running around or not. Ukraine existing would have logical consequences; if those consequences turn out not to be true, then there’s no reason to believe Ukraine exists.

The problem with the sorts of assertions I am talking about here is that they do not have testable consequences. If Person A (who ought to know if devolution is true or not) says it’s true–the proponents of the theory conclude it’s true. If Person A instead says its false, the proponents of the theory conclude it’s true, because he’s obviously trying to conceal it for some reason. *There’s no way to test the theory when any piece of evidence AND the opposite piece of evidence BOTH can be interpreted the same way.* Thus, there’s no way for us to know whether it’s true or not.

It’s interesting how you pivot from “devolution is true” to “God exists” as if you get to them by the same methodology. After all, I wasn’t claiming the proposition that God exists belongs in this category…but YOU just did.

But hey, if you want to put “God exists” in that same unprovable/undisprovable category, that’s fine with me. Just do me a favor and in the future, don’t try to claim you have a *rational* argument for the existence of God. (Maybe others do, but you, clearly, do not.)

Actually, I should thank you for your honesty. You’re saying there’s no way to prove or disprove the existence of God via rational means, that faith is necessary. That’s an honest stance, better than all the bogus “rational” arguments I’ve seen that don’t stand careful scrutiny.

Well said, and I’m seeing more and more of that.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Many of the old “conspiracy theories” were the same way. (I say “old” because the term has better referents now than it did in the past.)

Imagine infiltrating the organization that was supposed to be behind everything, just to see if it was really true. And you find out it’s not. The people who believe the old-style conspiracy theory won’t believe you, because, clearly, you’ve been suborned by the Illuminati (or whoever).

Even testimony from an insider is worthless to disprove the Old style conspiracy theory, by the very nature of the theory.

In fact his strawman said more about him than it did about me.


“If I can’t understand something, that must mean it’s part of a plan”. That may very well be true and almost surely is – some of the time — and maybe at this point it’s a majority of the time. But it isn’t an absolute.

Hillary Clinton obviously has used a body double. And Biden’s installation was hinky, wrong time and wrong weather. And they are using a sound stage.

So who hired Doug Logan, and paid his now-defunct CyberNinjas? Seems like old-fashioned infiltration and corruption to me.

I wonder if there might be covert operators, moles and spies, dedicated to leading people around by the nose on anonymous message boards, with hopium posts?

 Loretta E. Lynch  Eighty-Third Attorney General, 2015-2017

In 1990, after a period in private practice, Ms. Lynch joined the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York… In 1999, President Bill Clinton appointed her to lead the office as United States Attorney, a post she held until 2001. In 2002, she joined Hogan & Hartson LLP (now Hogan Lovells) as a partner in the firm’s New York office…. US DOJ

So where was dear Loretta in 2005 to 2006 when Byrne said he was helping the FIB?

 Federal Reserve Bank of New York:  

 The Board of Governors also appointed LORETTA E. LYNCH, Partner, Hogan & Hartson L.L.P., New York, N.Y., a class C director of this Bank for a three-year term beginning January 2003.

This is amusing —- I couldn’t find a darn thing about Lynch’s bankster connection in the US MSM I have to go to Aljazeera


….What’s most ludicrous about Lynch’ prosecuting FIFA officials for financial crimes is that she has, for much of her legal career, defended some of Wall Street’s worst financial criminals. When she left Harvard, she took a job as a litigation assistant for Cahill Gordon & Reindel (CG&R) — the go-to law firm for New York’s financial crooks — from 1984 to 1990. CG&R attorneys represented some of the more notorious figures behind the savings and loan scandal of the 1980s and 1990s. The “securities litigation and white-collar criminal defense” section of CG&R’s website describes the type of clients the firm represents. Headliners include the bankers behind the $5 trillion-per-day LIBOR market scandal, which Lynch’s office recently slapped with a $6 billion fine, and the ratings agencies that knowingly rated doomed-to-fail mortgage-backed securities as AAA.

Lynch’s legal career is emblematic of the revolving door between Washington and Wall Street. After 11 years of working for the U.S. attorney’s office, Lynch took a job at Hogan & Hartson (now known as Hogan Lovells), working alongside John Roberts, now the chief justice of the United States….

And then there was President CLINTON….

 Sometimes, Correlation Is Causation

The 2008 mortgage crisis was caused by the five new banking laws Clinton signed.

The McFadden Act of 1927 or Amendment to the National Banking Laws and the Federal Reserve Act (P.L. 69-639, 44 STAT. 1224): Prohibited interstate banking.

Law: Negating above:
Riegle-Neal Interstate Banking and Branching Efficiency Act of 1994 </b>(P.L. 103-328, 108 STAT. 2338).
Permits bank holding companies to acquire banks in any state one year Beginning June 1, 1997, allows interstate mergers. (Can you say TOO BIG TO FAIL???)


The Glass-Steagall Act or Banking Act of 1933</b> (P.L. 73-66, 48 STAT. 162): Separated commercial banking from investment banking, establishing them as separate lines of commerce.

Bank Holding Company Act of 1956 (P.L. 84-511, 70 STAT. 133): Prohibited bank holding companies headquartered in one state from acquiring a bank in another state.

Law: Negating both of the above laws:
Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of 1999 (P.L. 106-102, 113 STAT 1338)
Repeals last vestiges of the Glass Steagall Act of 1933. Modifies portions of the Bank Holding Company Act to allow affiliations between banks and insurance underwriters. Law creates a new financial holding company authorized to engage in: underwriting and selling insurance and securities, conducting both commercial and merchant banking, investing in and developing real estate and other “complimentary activities.” (Can you say TOO BIG TO FAIL???)


 Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Improvement Act of 1991 (P.L. 102-242, 105 STAT. 2236).
Also known as FDICIA. FDICIA [b]greatly increased the powers and authority of the FDIC. Major provisions recapitalized the Bank Insurance Fund and allowed the FDIC to strengthen the fund by borrowing from the Treasury.

Housing and Community Development Act of 1992 (P.L. 102-550, 106 STAT. 3672).

RTC Completion Act (P.L. 103-204, 107 STAT. 2369):

Time to step in as these and other acts also contributed. IMO, as a former business banker selling loans to WS, the debt market collapse was primarily driven by Gramm-Leach and the Community Reinvestment Act. Dodd-Frank is not going to help much because of political cronyism and international banking pressures.

This is a good summary from where I sat back in the day. It’s not all-inclusive, but hits some good high spots.

I am out of time this AM and will return to this later. Just will say this now – banks should be banks, insurance companies should be insurance companies, hedge funds should be regulated/audited more, investment houses should not own banks, insurance companies would not own banks, etc.

I would love to hear your take on those five laws and the ramifications. The original laws were put in place to prevent another Great Depression.

McFadden was a banker and he hated the FED.

On January 13, 1932, McFadden made a speech introducing a resolution to indict the Federal Reserve Board of Governors for criminal conspiracy:

      Whereas I charge them, jointly and severally, with the crime of having treasonably conspired and acted against the peace and security of the United States and having treasonably conspired to destroy constitutional government in the United States. Resolved, that the Committee on the Judiciary is authorized and directed as a whole or by subcommittee to investigate the official conduct of the Federal Reserve Board and agents to determine whether, in the opinion of the said committee, they have been guilty of any high crime or misdemeanor which in the contemplation of the Constitution requires the interposition of the Constitutional powers of the House.[13]


McFadden would be correct IMO. I would have been his acolyte had I lived during those days. Any action to correct has always been met by the corrupted personal interests of the HR/Senate members who do their bidding. They would have probably killed me off.

100+ year plan to take control of America as well as the world.

From my semi-retained brain cell memory banks…

The timing of interstate banking to overturn McFadden was publicly submitted to counter Japan and Euro big bank growth that was beginning to dominate corporate international finance and grow expansion of those countries’ economies. We had already ceded manufacturing to Japan and others who emerged later like China. We were well on the way toward losing the automotive dominance we held for decades.

It is a more complex and slower process to assimilate bank participation loans of size for international conglomerates using smaller sized banks. When too big to fail mega sized banks are available they can commit to the larger financing deals and farm out participations to downstream correspondent banks after the financing has been been underwritten and committed. Many times the mega bank will have enough liquidity to fund without needed funds from participants prior to or at closing of the transaction. They then settle up with the participants after the fact. When assets such as real estate, capital equipment, vehicle fleets, government project borrowing, military industrial complex, etc. need the big bucks – you better have it available pronto. When foreign banks end up getting those deals, you have a national security issue to address because the foreign bank is going to potentially learn trade secrets, marketing strategy, national defense issues, etc.

There were other factors given for public consumption such as getting banks into underserved and poor markets that would not ordinary have the capital to create their own banks to fund local needs. The big bank could simply branch in.

Gramm-Leach just stunk to high heaven the day it was signed. Slick green lighted that early in his first term and Newt and the GOP were all too happy to help it progress. With the debt market collapse in 2008 – the banks and insurance companies learned big time how stupid it was to dive into each other’s businesses. Most divested as soon as they could pull it off. JMO – the reason it does not work well is because of business model principles. They do not underwrite business the same ways. Bankers think credit quality and all of the factors, formulas and calculations that go into that are combined with factors that cannot be quantified relating to business practices and operations. Insurance companies play the odds from data and are more industry (macro) focused. That is fine if all they are doing is investing in pooled debt products to build income streams. But when they gain bank control and start influencing the daily operations of a bank’s credit area, it can lead to disaster. You simply cannot cookie cutter credit in commercial and international finance. It usually does not end well with consumer finance as well when national recessions/depressions come along. Banks diving into insurance services was less prevalent except for small stuff. They might have a subsidiary through a holding company. Banks never really identified with the risk of the insurance business model and are more micro transaction driven versus macro long term relationship driven as it is with insurance.

IMO, what precipitated the 2008 collapse was the CRA and the entitlement philosophies of politicians toward owning houses, vehicles, and easy consumer credit. That attitude trickled down into the regulatory agencies, who looked the other way or went easy on their exams. Easy money led to easy lending practices to float the politicians’ boats. Then the vultures swooped in after housing/mortgages/equity loans collapsed, vehicle lending collapsed with the car manufacturers downturn from consumer spending tanking from all the job losses and negativity, credit card related defaults/bankruptcies exploded, etc. All of it killed commercial and corporate lending/projects in the process because business demand tanked and large buyers of debt securitizations ran away as fast as they could. Where did they find safe harbor. Government debt – bonds and in other international markets who were picking up the slack of a deteriorating America.

And then lo and behold, who rides into the rescue – the Fed and all the world’s central banks to crank up the printing presses and buy the governmental deficits around the world due to the shrinking tax revenue bases. Well, that was convenient. All while their vulture buddies grab all the real estate, troubled businesses, and low cost/high upside assets they could find.

FDICIA just gave them access to the piggy bank to shore up the “insurance” fund that is supposed to be paid from bank contributions. Surprise, they can tap the treasury in bad environments and conveniently forget to recoup the funds through increased charges to member banks.

So what was the primary factor driving the bad underwriting, funding, etc.?

Community Reinvestment Act (CRA). Forces banks to not redline, to reinvest back into their assigned territories regardless of credit worthiness or viability. Audited every year. If the bank gets accused or sued by community groups, they usually write them a check to settle it regardless of its validity. RTCC act made the FDIC an attack hound for leftists as it expanded the overreach on banks to include business lending in crap markets as well as giving them the authority to go after business loan defaults from many years before that Resolution Trust had already closed the books on. They typically assert some sort of borrower impropriety that was missed. Basically – extort money from people who had moved on from a failed business and had subsequently found success. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac loaded up on the high risk house loans of CRA as well.

Funding for the mess came from many sources, but hedge funds funded the largest segment of it and by their design took on the most risk to receive the highest returns. So they would buy the higher risk tranches of the securitizations – the stuff that was encouraged by politician actions and liberally underwritten. So when the underlying assets started defaulting at much higher rates than modeled, they theoretically lost money. As a rule, if they lose money on an investment they don’t do business with the investment bank that sold the investment anymore. So. if the loss was not overwhelming, the investment bankers would eat the losses to keep the funding source available for future deals in the works. They did it by buying back the investment/tranche they sold to the buyer. However, they did not anticipate the magnitude of the losses they would eat and eventually stopped absorbing the hedge funds’ loss positions. Bear Stearns bellied up first, followed by Lehman. The combinations of holding unsellable pools of debt, with taking losses in their own underwriting of investments, absorbing investor losses, reduced trading income, and making bad investments into troubled markets drove them into bankruptcy. It was not one bit surprising to me with BS since our company did business with them and I knew the mindsets and attitudes of their key senior managers. Arrogant arses. Then Countrywide and other large home mortgage poolers bit the dust because nobody was securitizing their pools of mortgages because they ran out of buyers. Meanwhile the delinquency and default rates continued to worsen with each passing day on their own books. They ran out of money and time.

So, track the sources of liquidity for hedge funds and you know who took a lion’s share of losses among many “investors”. Guess who some hedge fund investors were (and are today)? Would oil prices go up if the investors were from Arab oil producing countries? Would the Balance of Trade get far worse from cheap products flooding the American market from consumer junk to steel and building products from China? Think back to that time. Let your mind run wild with the possibilities and you would be right most of time. The politicians were also on the hook internationally big time with their promises of performance in return for business opportunities. Some very bad people invest into those funds and expect the return they are promised. Consequences are what they are. Does it explain a bit of what you saw and see even today?

There’s more to it all than I have posted, but my brain and fingers are tired for now.

Well said. I always remember the loans that B of A made/underwrote to Mexico, which defaulted, USGov. steps in to pay off the loan AND THE PENALTY, rinse and repeat. IIRC, this happened three times in a row. Satan Sauros was involved for at least one of those defaults.

The two words that still scare the daylights out of me are unfunded liabilities. We have them over here, too, in spades. Sooner or later they’re going to be called in, and all hell will break loose… And the deep state, RED China, and who knows will saunter off to the bank, with OUR money, once again…

Just looking at Kalifornistan gives a bitter taste of what might happen… the no-longer-Golden State…

Thanks a bunch for posting that. It fleshes out some of the thinks I knew and gives me other stuff I did not know.

Thanks for all your work all the time Gail. It’s all there, quotes and links. No nebulous references to hidden sources that we aren’t bright enough to be privy to. 😆

I try to show the ‘DOTS’ and hope people can see how they are connected.

Could there be some sting operations going on in the background?

Sure, and I certainly hope so. But I think we can say Byrne looks like a REAL BAD GUY and that is going back a couple decades. Either that or he was used by the sleasy FBI. Either way I do not trust him AT ALL.

Jeremy Oliver? I think he is a Con-Artist THUG!

Mary Fanning? I do not trust her either given who her hubby is AND the fact she does not use his name.

FLYNN? Jury is out. He could be part of a data gathering sting. The mess in Arizona could have been a ‘HEY LOOK A SQUIRREL’ major diversion while the real work is carried out quietly else where.


So Byrne is a public figure, he only resigned Overstock in 2019 (since 1999) after the Butina stuff came out. And from what you’ve uncovered he’s been on the wrong side for a long time. I’m trying to figure out how he has become Flynn’s right hand man, seemingly out of the blue.

It has to be more than just having the $$$ to facilitate things. Flynn knows plenty of those people. He has to have some connection to Byrne previous to 2020.

Regarding the mess in Arizona, wasn’t it $3M from Byrne and millions more in America Project donations (my money/your money) that was used to pay Cyber Ninjas? Flynn/Byrne hired them, they had no election audit experience, and are now conveniently out of business. Millions of OUR money, thrown around. America Project would never have been successful without the Flynn name recognition. Just like Powell’s Defend the Republic.

I’m just rambling, could go on and on. If Flynn is straight – none of this is a good look. If he’s undercover, playing fast and loose with millions in donation $$ isn’t a good look. I have not seen any financial disclosure with regard to either America Project or Defend the Republic – whereas Lin Wood’s stuff is out there.

Question, was Lindell just completely played from the get go? I thought Mary Fanning worked with him to produce the whole Absolute series of films.

And thanks for the back-and-forth. After last night’s new low, it’s nice to do business as usual.

“….Question, was Lindell just completely played from the get go? I thought Mary Fanning worked with him to produce the whole Absolute series of films…”

Yes she did work on the films. As to whether Lindell and Sidney Powell were played, I do not know but you have Joshua Merritt, Byrne and Jeremy Oliver Popping up all over.

This has a lot pf the skuttlebutt all in one place. World TribuneDominion Voting Systems update: Why the silence? Who is Mary Fanning?

And this Article in the Post & Email founded by a Christian andstaunch opponent of Communism and Fascism,’   has a lot more information

Did Mary Fanning Cause the Downfall of Mike Lindell?

….Fanning leaves a path of destruction and broken relationships in her wake of falsehoods, and John B. Wells is going to find himself on the list of victims along with Lindell, Howse and Dave Janda, who also broke ties with Fanning over a year ago.  

You know something is wrong when a hard left-wing propagandist like Farron Balanced is providing cover for Fanning. You really have to ask yourself just whose side this woman is really on.


I don’t think I’ve ever seen a picture of her. I forget, was she sitting behind a desk in those films? Or at the symposium?
As fast as stuff is coming down the conveyor belt, that feels like 3 years ago already.

Well things just got even more interesting…

I tried to find HER photo and instead found her husband’s Checking to see if it was the CORRECT person I found this.
