Just a word of warning on today’s content: the Durham report is pretty much dominating the news, and, since it dropped on a Monday, as opposed to a Friday when news that is meant to die does, it will be with us all week as we see the DRIP DRIP DRIP of information given to the normies. Yes, we know this stuff. They don’t, or didn’t believe it before Monday. Some still will not believe it, I am sure.
Just hang on for the ride and enjoy the exposure.
(I WILL NEVER DM YOU) The Kate Awakening Channel
You’re going to see a lot of doomers and black-pillers over the next several weeks to, well, forever.
But you’re also going to see people, such as myself, who are pretty much immune to dooming and black-pilling.
The anger and fear in you will tell you to align with the doomers and maybe even cause you to get mad at people like me who refuse to let anything break our spirit.
It’s not because we don’t see or understand the same things you do. It’s not because we are lazy or dense or dumb. It’s a matter of perspective and the determination to never, ever, EVER give up. No matter what. It’s a victory you can choose to give yourself that nothing and no one can take away.
With a winning spirit, we can actually fight harder and be MORE effective in our mission to wake people up and get this mess cleaned up. I promise you, you will never regret choosing to be unshakable in the face of anything, but you probably WILL regret giving in to fear and anger.
I have no judgement for people who are frustrated and pissed off. I get it! You are completely validated. But my encouragement for you would be to turn towards the people with hope right now rather than despair, because both are contagious. ♥️

Another small detail you may be missing. It’s Monday. Generally speaking, when the dark state is controlling a narrative they release these things on a Friday, late in the news cycle, so the media has the weekend to get the spin written and internally tested.
A Monday release of the Durham report means they have to report on the fly, and they have a whole week to deal with it.
Once they make their initial reaction plain today, they are going to have to stick to the direction they set.
CNN and Fox are already calling it like they see it. That’s news in and of itself.

First thoughts on the Durham Report:
I feel an odd weight of disappointment and slight confusion that Durham dropped a final report and is done after testifying. It comes from this not being what I expected or wanted.
However, I am not sad or bummed in the slightest.
I am stoked, giddy, thrilled and encouraged to see what is in this report. There’s so much here and in a sense we are closing a chapter (Durham SCO) so that we can open a new one (Post Durham Report).
Durham is telling THE story of the events he was tasked to investigate in this Report, just like he did in those indictments and filings. There are so many nuggets of information in this thing and we will see it cited over and over and over again going forward.
And the consequences that will come from this… whew. This is 300+ pages of ammo (figuratively) against the Deep State. Meticulously investigated and logged, compiled, organized and now presented.
This is 300+ pages of PAIN for [THEM]. (see drop)
All of us are right about some things and wrong about others and we ALL just took a massive leap towards finding out what we got right and what we got wrong with the delivery of this report.
Trump is absolutely vindicated by the Durham Report.
Today was a damn good day.
I’ve been threading about the Durham Report on Twitter at the link below. Will pick it up again tomorrow morning.

Trump’s ridiculous defamation verdict. Title 42 possibly being extended by a Florida judge last minute. The brilliant performance of Trump on the CNN Town Hall. Congress going after the Biden Crime Family and its complete blackout by the media. With so much going on, I was afraid anything put out this week might be ignored. But the truth is, so much of the news cycle is just hype. We are constantly manipulated into thinking something huge is about to happen and it doesn’t.
This was supposed to be the week everyone found out how corrupt the Bidens are, and hundreds of thousands were supposed to cross the border illegally. How many times do we need to be distracted by the shiny object before we realize the real work is being done behind the scenes? While Americans have seizures staring at the flashing, throbbing strobe light, the real change is occurring more subtly.
We seem to fall for it every time, and we are supposed to be the enlightened ones. It’s not just the left-leaning media that gaslights us; it’s our side as well. Does anyone think it’s a coincidence that Trump scheduled a Town Hall on CNN for the day after his verdict was supposed to come out? Does anyone think Trump didn’t know ahead of time the outcome of the verdict? The verdict just makes the Left look even more ridiculous; the Town Hall was an opportunity to showcase this.
DP: This is why emotional investment is dangerous.

From anon conservative: So the FBI unilaterally made up a cause so they could unleash CIA-like intelligence operations against a Presidential candidate to inflict upon us Hillary Clinton as President, and when that failed, they tried to take Trump down.
In a nutshell, yes.

We have the Durham Report – a running thread:
The Clinton campaign plan to link Trump-Russia – known to the CIA – was briefed to President Obama, VP Biden, AG Lynch, and FBI Director Comey
The FBI and DOJ restricted two investigations into Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election:
1) The Clinton Foundation investigation
2) Illegal foreign contributions to the Clinton Campaign

Believe that or not, it’s up to the reader, but he makes a good point.
I saw a lot of similar sentiments on Tuesday.
Would love to know if that’s true or not.
Demand from the public must be built.
One of many reasons I no longer work in an office. It used to happen to me all the time.

And, of course, the obligatory George Carlin:
Per the Boss:
And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:
Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.
Fellow tree dweller, the late Wheatie, gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone
Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.
Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.
Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there. The “Rescue Thread” is also over there. In the event a rendezvous of the tree is needed, please check it out, as well as the newest rescue venue.
Auntie DePat’s requests:
If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.
The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.
Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.
One other vital note:
Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.
PSALMS 148:1-2, 11-14
1Praise the LORD! Praise the LORD from the heavens, praise him in the heights! 2Praise him, all his angels, praise him, all his host! 11Kings of the earth and all peoples, princes and all rulers of the earth! 12Young men and maidens together, old men and children! 13Let them praise the name of the LORD, for his name alone is exalted; his glory is above earth and heaven. 14He has raised up a horn for his people, praise for all his saints, for the people of Israel who are near to him. Praise the LORD!
12“I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. 13When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. 14He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. 15All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.
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.
Thank you, DePat, for a Wednesday Thread that is simply maaaahhhhhvelous.
How’d your gig go?
It went fine. An interfaith memorial service for fallen FBI agents. It used to be an annual event. It looks like its being resurrected.
Hmmm. Isn’t that interesting? On the day the Durham report comes out, a memorial service for fallen FBI agents is revived. Coincidence?
It was for the local field office and had been planned for at least a month. I don’t see a connection.
Well, unless there was some foreknowledge. Who knows?
That is what I was thinking. Foreknowledge. I am sure the DOJ had some inkling and passed it on.
What did you sing for the service? Was it a solo?
Just some hymns for before and after music. Yes, it was solo with organ.
When was the last time you did it before this time?
This was my first time, actually. They stopped doing it when the lockdowns were in place.
With any other crowd, you could have said that the picture was The Lonely Mountain reflected in Long Lake in Erebor…..
Been thinking of Mt Saint Helen, for a couple weeks now. Anticipating 14(?) award winning pics. guess documenting some of what happened during the eruption.
Perhaps I missed them. Or, will be posted another day.
Absolutely looking forward to the pictures.
Separately, Bannon NAILS IT. ACTION IS REQUIRED.
BANNON: We Don’t Need Another ‘Report’
that no one will read or care about:
we need Action ,
we need Indictments,
we need Prosecutions,
we need Convictions,
we need Incarcerations…
I haven’t watched the Bannon clip yet. He is spot on regarding what we need, and I think the Durham report is monumental evidence that will be the foundation for all those things.
Seemingly all of the references and facts are documented. Known location. All we need is DOJ to allows justice, over stonewalling.
We’ve only been in this fight of sorts, for seven or eight years. Trump riding down the escalator.
Yes. I just read that Bannon said the report is a clown show. I don’t know what he was expecting, but I think a report that completely exonerates Donald Trump and others, and names names of those who perpetrated crimes against him and against this country, is huge. It is the guidebook for prosecuting people, if anyone will.
Bannon is taking curves in the road on two wheels.
His meds need adjustment. [j/k]
Well, I was expecting indictments. My understanding, indictments were part of Durham’s tool box.
That said, we need to pick up the pieces and move forward.
Will be very interested in Beck’s plan Thursday.
No idea what it will be.
Game for anything except visiting DC, unless it is Trump’s inauguration.
Yes what happened to those “thousands of sealed indictments”??? 😉
I could be mistaken, but I don’t think those referenced indictments are related to Durham. Where they are, I don’t know.
I thought they were connected to grand juries impaneled by Durham but my memory is usually pretty crappy nowadays…
They’re for patriots, IMO.
Sadly that wouldn’t actually surprise me…
They’re for US!!!
As is the extra capacity at GITMO we keep hearing about, as if it were good news.
People who put forth the indictments and GITMO expansion as proof some good guys were really in control had ZERO basis for assuming that’s what it meant. Given that the Opposition had effective and uncontested control of the machinery of government even during Trump’s presidency, if one is going to go assuming things, the opposite (i.e., that the bad guys are behind the indictments and GITMO expansion) makes more sense.
Sadly true. The theory that QAnon was a McChrystal operation, make too much sense to be completely denied, despite his being (allegedly) out of the loop.
The more general idea that all of this is a “patriot management project” makes the most sense of all, IMO.
“Justice delayed is justice denied, but if you can delay it past the day when people care, it works.” I think that must be on the wall of the DOJ and FBI now.
I need to understand why Kash keeps hanging out with folks like AWK and X22.
I wonder if Gail would weigh in on that?
By that perspective, the Monday release of Durham was likely to create lots of Look Squirrel focus taking eyes off the Biden Crime Family exposures, continuation of ubiquitous Deep State duplicity & Not “white hats are in charge” evidence. Do we have Any Proof of Any actual white hats?
Interesting thought – that Durham was used to divert attention from China Joe corruption.
just trying to flesh out Steve’s logic…at this point nothing is surprising unless & until the evil doers get what’s coming to them…
Indictments were pure hopia.
Likely so 🙁
I think a general strike, until indictments and trials begin, is called for. But that’s just me.
They will ignore calls, emails, letters, etc. They have staff to deal with that. They don’t care. And get close to them to confront them, and go to jail. Screw that.
The Bud Light strike was a massive success.
And remember – I’m always advocating an “FBI strike” when the Gestapo comes to your door.
Oh, yeah! I’m still planning on belting out The Star Spangled Banner, some hymns, and whatever other songs I can remember the words to.
LMAO! I hope it’s on video, because that would melt the internet!!!
I’ll try to be sure I get video, with high quality sound. DP can make fun of my high notes, which will be off-key!
“The Ballad of Eskimo Nell”?
I’d have to learn that one!
Durham was well aware that prosecuting AT THIS TIME with this completely CORRUPT Just-Us system was useless.
REMEMBER once tried and acquitted or pardoned, people can not be re-tried.
Your thinking is correct – it is the foundation.
1/20/2025. DJT gets sworn in and appoints Mike Davis as acting AG.
Fireworks, in the form of criminal charges against swamp creatures and other deep staters, begin immediately.
I started to say that would be a dream come true, but really, it has to happen or this country is gone.
i do NOT think we can wait until, 1/20/2025.
Then there is no point in continuing to fight.
Sometimes you have to wait. Keeping your powder dry in the meantime, with undiminished fervor for the task during, is crucial.
Q and General Flynn and others have told us, FIRST you have to win the INFORMATION WAR and the Durham Report, The Twatter Files are BOMBS dropped by our side.
The dumping of thousands and thousands of Illegals in Sanctuary cities where INNER CITY BLACKS can SEE the illegals are treated MUCH BETTER than they are is also working.
Just Human made an interesting comment. He noted that MOST of the border wall was built. That means the crossings are CONCENTRATED where Border patrol can catch and surveil. (DO NOT FORGET FACIAL RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY!!!)
He also mentioned a lot of drug lords are getting rolled up thanks to Mexican- US co-operation.
Sealed indictments can stop the clock on the statue of limitations:
Sealed indictments prevent the criminals from knowing they are being hunted. This is esp important when hunting a massive criminal enterprise. (RICO can also be used to get around the statue of limitations)

Nothing to see here.
SUN TZU RULES:
I. Laying Plans
18. All warfare is based on deception.
20. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder, and crush him
24. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.
25. These military devices, leading to victory, must not be divulged beforehand.
ll. WAGING WAR:
5. Thus, though we have heard of stupid haste in war, cleverness has never been associated with long delays.
6. There is no instance of a country having benefited from prolonged warfare.
7. It is only one who is thoroughly acquainted with the evils of war that can thoroughly understand the profitable way of carrying it on.
8. The skillful soldier does not raise a second levy, neither are his supply-wagons loaded more than twice.
9. Bring war material with you from home, but forage on the enemy. Thus the army will have food enough for its needs.
10. Poverty of the State exchequer causes an army to be maintained by contributions from a distance. Contributing to maintain an army at a distance causes the people to be impoverished.
19. In war, then, let your great object be victory, not lengthy campaigns.
That is NOT what I posted. WITHING until Jan 21, 2025, is not acceptable. To me anyway.
Then there is no point in continuing to fight.
Yes there is.
Mike Davis good choice 🙂
I used to live about 30 miles southwest of Mount St Helens. I have fished in Spirit Lake. We moved to Arkansas in 1978 (2 yrs prior to the Big One)
WOW! Talk about dodging a bullet!!!
As it turns out, Where I lived had minimal impact from the volcano as it blew up to the North 🙂 I have relatives that live in Longview Washington (northwest of the mountain) that sent me a pint mason jar full of the ash… It looks and feels like dry concrete powder.
November 91 we transfered to NAS Cubi PT, Philippines.
Lahar everywhere – gritty rough like sand.
The home we were assigned had the walkway shoveled. As one shovels snow. Couple feet of lahar everywhere.
To this day, the region uses lahar to make hallow blocks.
Yep, a lot like snow.
Except that you can’t just pile it out of the way and wait for it to melt…because it’s not going to melt. It will stay wherever you put it.
Actions MUST COME after Trump is in the White House. Other wise Biden pardons everyone. ALSO STATES can go after feds where the crimes occurred IN THAT STATE.
I wonder if Texas can go after Mayorkas for the border crisis?
Seems 50 states have a gripe with Mayorkis,
You can even see Dale off in the distance…..
Just as a point of clarification — I can’t see the picture used, but Coast Redwoods (Sequoia sempervirens) are the world’s tallest trees; Giant Sequoias, (Sequoiadendron giganteum) are the world’s largest trees — not quite as tall, but significantly bigger-around. Though both are native to California, you’d have to hustle to see large examples on the same day — Giant Sequoias east of Visalia in the Sierras, and Coast Redwoods along Highway 101 in Humboldt County (near the Oregon border).
Mariposa Grove, near Wawona, in Yosemite. (CA 41 entrance) Visited several times. DW first visit to US in 82, included Yosemite, Mariposa Grove… Great memories.
IIRC, may be a grove in Hetch Hetchy area. Unsure of this one.
I can easily drive to Coast Redwoods where I live. They’ve been logged and are nowhere near the size of the ones up north. Similarly, the there are Giant Sequoias up by Yosemite, but the giant Giant Sequoias are down south.
When I said, “have to hustle”, I figured you were going to bust my chops — “I could start at home, do the Coast Redwoods, head south to the Giant Sequoias, and spend the night in Albuquerque….”
Cracking up a bit.
Have “day trip” driven Ridgecrest, CA to Socorro, NM (below Albuquerque), several times.
But yea, it would be quite the drive, from National Parks area near Visalia, to near CA / OR border.
Both appear to be nearly the same drive distance, 800 miles.
By contrast, we’re wusses. When we go up to visit the ‘rents in Salem, we generally overnight in Weed. After fighting our way out of the Bay Area, we’re exhausted.
“Miles” driven in CA, Bay Area specifically, commonly s l o w going.
As opposed to my drive above. Mostly Open road I-10, I-40 and I-25.
I double-dog dare you to drive 101-134-210-57-10 across the Valley during normal daylight hours and say that LA is better.
If you’d rather, I-5 from 14 to Laguna Hills is a similar nightmare.
When I was growing up, the LA freeway system was a world-respected marvel (just like the state water project that hasn’t built a reservoir in 40 years).
How did you get to Socorro? Were you taking US60? It’s got I-25 headed up and down, but left and right look like goat trails.
Above, 1-10 was brain fart.
Correct drive, US395-US58-I-40, !-25.
Pick up I-40 W at Barstow. Then either
I-25 S to Socorro. ORNM6 (IIRC – I-25 at Los Lunas, into Socorro.I-25 goes right through Socorro. (Then on to Las Cruces)At least six business trips for Navy at EMRTEC. Really cool explosives testing.
OK, that makes a lot more sense.
“Pick up I-40 W at Barstow.”
I hope you meant east.
Barstow is the western end of I-40, you can’t go west on I-40 from there (though there is CA-58 running west from Barstow, through Tehachapi and connecting with CA-99 at Bakersfield and then going all the way across I-5 to US-101; conceivably I-40 could be extended along it at least to I-5 but that would only be in an alternate reality where the government spends money on roads rather than hosting illegal invader/immigrants)
One time I was in Sacramento and rather than try to get over Donner Pass when it was raining constantly in Sac (meaning snowing on Donner Pass), I simply went down CA-99 and took 58 across to Barstow and went home via Albuquerque, rather than taking I-80 over the pass and going home via Cheyenne or via US-50 and I-70. It was probably only one or two hours longer by the time you account for the Donner Pass clusterf*ck, and a lot less stressful. (I had experienced the Donner Pass Charlie Foxtrot on the way TO Sacramento and didn’t wish to repeat the experience.)
East, yes. (Another brain fart.)
Is there a left turn involved?
That’s literally how I get home from Southern CA on those occasions where I have to go there. A left turn at Albuquerque.
Are any of those where the road went through the truck of some huge tree? At least that’s my recollection of a 1950’s or 60’s tourist image…
I’ve stood under that tree. It was so depressing. I felt so sorry for the tree.
The tree is still alive AFAIK.
That’s good. It was just so damaged.
I too, have stood under that tree 🙂
3 Incredible Drive Through Redwood Trees in California! | The Whole World Is A Playground
TY! Something to consider if I Ever get out that way again…it’s been 30+ years 🙂
Yeah, that’s what I figured was the problem here – the original should have said largest, not tallest.
At 115 meters, it probably meant tallest — but should have been labeled “Coast Redwood” instead of “Sequoia”.
It’s mostly confusing if you don’t realize there are TWO types of trees being discussed. That the common name of one species is the genus name of the other is just icing on the cake. Once you see the difference, it’s easy to use properly…..
….unless you’re the sort of person that goes into crowds of men and yells “Homos!”
The actual record-holders are named, but not their locations (there was a “Tagging” project probably a decade or two ago to find the biggest/tallest, but identities were withheld to protect them from nutcakes and treehuggers… and Boise Cascade 🙂 ).
From the comments:
I bought a few of those “trees in a tube” from Josteens in Muir Woods, but my brown thumb killed them. The Giant Sequoias actually do pretty well here in South Germany, but even they can’t handle my *cough* arborial ineptitude… sigh…
Regarding this Cernovich tweet:
He doesn’t accurately state what went on in the ad. He doesn’t even try to be truthful about it, using spin that is worthy of the Left.
Read that one a few times. Utterly nonsensical, in a slow guy way of thinking.
cheap seats view is clueless too 🙂
Exhibit A, Cernovitch, entitled “Hypocrisy”:
The woman in the Miller Lite commercial has posted topless videos to get people to vote for Dems, but she objects to beer companies using women in bikinis for their advertising.
I’m dying here……..
This goes well with my rant, “ibid”!!!⬇⬇⬇
Talk about flat beer…
Yeah, he’s leaving a LOT out to make his point, although I’m willing to debate the point with him.
I think his perspective is useful in explaining why the ad looks different to different people.
Part of it, you just explained. Cerno is only mentioning parts of the ad – and those parts exclude all the things that piss off most people, apparently. I know they piss me off.
So yeah, it is interesting that a bunch of flyover conservatives who used to be shameless about dressing like natives (COUGH) around the pool, might have their old innocence questioned via BEER HARPIES who demand literal censorship of that era as the price of THEIR definition of conservatism.
What the hell! Some New York BITCH who calls herself “queer” wants to lecture sexual normals – who in reality are 1000 times as modest as her, other than wearing (or having worn)- WAIT FOR IT – swimwear – about beer ads from the 70s and 80s that show women by the pool? Or, heaven forbid, on BOATS? Aye-yi-yi.
The fact is, people like to drink beer…. wait for it….. BY THE DAMN POOL.
The whole “issue” strikes me as FAKE AS HELL.
It’s a typical leftist conflation. Communist prudery, where it’s OK to turn your son into a GIRL, but it’s not OK for your son to find naked women attractive in a non-porn setting…… Sorry. It’s nuts. The left denormalizes the normal, and normalizes the ultra-bizarre that nobody would ever accept without massive brainwashing.
I’m sick of their brainwashing – and that ad was brainwashing.
It was a thing all day. A lot of us shrug off the “woke” thing, just ignoring it.
Of course, most of it has to do with life experience and the amount dealt with daily. I live in a heavily liberal area with LOTS of college professor granola cruncher, Subaru driving sorts. Chevy Volts and Teslas and Priuses everywhere. I just walk past it.
I think I understand. Your option is best for your situation.
I am in a red zone which is now under heavy blue bombardment, and thus engaged in a daily battle with “local woke”. Millions if not billions of Democrat dollars are being spent to overturn the local politics. It’s a huge fight.
ERRRrrrr Why did a BIG BLACK BOX show up suddenly in the middle of this comment by Wolfie? It happened while I was reading
Anyone else have that happen?
We have had squirrelly computer problems the last few days.
I scrolled back up and now it is gone.
It may or may not be anything. But now I do need to say this.
Word to everybody here. We are going to be under DIRECT ATTACK by the FBI from here on out. Sometimes that will be “contractors”, and sometimes it will be the FBI themselves. Because of my involvement in local politics surrounding school boards, I am now classified as some kind of extremist, and so – thanks to Joe Biden – FBI can and will do almost anything to me, the other authors here, and anybody who is a regular on this site – registered or not.
FBI can now LEGALLY do the following to ALL of you:
What FBI cannot do legally, but which the dirty ones can and will do ILLEGALLY
You MAY see evidence of some of these things, if you’re lucky, but most people will miss the evidence, because the training in these techniques is quite good.
If you cannot deal with FBI doing these things to you, then I advise leaving this site completely. Even if you just stop commenting, FBI can engineer a pressure campaign and force you into returning on their behalf.
We are about to enter the very “not nice” phase of this conflict. Actually, we already have, but I am not sharing how I know that.
People with concerns are welcome to contact me on Gab chat, both regular and encrypted, but I will warn you that there is no guarantee that your conversation will be private. In general, it is best to simply talk in the open, where God’s protection is strongest.
Thank you, and God Bless. Onward, Patriots!
And just to be clear, one more time…..
disinfecting sunlight AND SonLight are always appropriate!
Wolf, I don’t think that very many Q-Treepers read this important comment based on just Four likes. You might want to re-post it in “today’s” daily & perhaps link to it, AND/or even better copy it in its entirety, in your Monday template…I think these remarks are That Crucial!
Wolf’s post is Both excellent AND bears repeating.
Actually, people are “not liking” it to avoid being recorded as having read it, which I totally understand and approve.
Still, I may add it to the Monday boilerplate, next week or so.
YW Your points make sense, on “likes” AND above 🙂 God Bless YOU Always, & thank you for so diligently watching over the Wolf Pack!
Miller sent him a nice check.
When I was 15 years old, I did a one month “if this is Tuesday, it must be Belgium” tour of Europe. I was somewhat startled to note that the drinking age seemed to be dependent on whether you could put payment on top of the bar — you pass that test, they’d serve you.
And that was before Italy, where the jug of wine on the table was free (covered by the pan e cubierto), but you had to pay for potable water. And sodas were most expensive of all.
I did an opera program in Italy one summer. Before 9-11. The older couple who offered the apartment where I stayed…he worked in one of the local vineyards and was paid in wine. He gave us a few bottles. Nice people. It’s just different over there. Can’t wait to go back at some point.
sounds amazing & magical!
I neglected to mention this yesterday, with all the other nice bee stuff, but Maker Faire used to have some fun bee-related projects.
One of them used LEDs and optodiodes to count the bees going in-and-out of the hive. You could practically see the little workers punch their time-clocks and head out for hunting and gathering (besides nectar and pollen from flowers, they also gather water, sap, and dirt [the latter of which are used to seal the hive from drafts]).
Another one used piezoelectric sensors to maintain a record of the hive’s weight. Besides the workers passing in-and-out, this also monitored how successfully they managed to gather supplies.
As a weird point of interest, it is illegal to keep your bees in anything but boxes in North Carolina.
A bee skep like on the state flag of Utah is right out.
Worker-bees start as an egg laid in honeycomb. Once it hatches into a grub, other bees come by and feed it until it is ready to pupate, when they seal the top over the cell. After she becomes an actual worker bee, her first task is to clean her cell to be ready for another egg.
She then goes to work inside the hive. She feeds the grubs and seals over the pupae. She builds new comb and feeds the queen and drones. If it is cold, she clusters in the center of the hive and shivers to keep the hive warm. During this very busy time of her life, she never sees the sun, never sees light — she works inside the hive.
Once she gets older, her wax glands and food glands get old and she can no longer tend the next generation directly, so she moves toward the “door” to the outside. She will do some security work near the hive — move the dead to the egress from the hive and unceremoniously dump them outside; chase away annoyances — but she will soon become a forager. She will intently observe the “waggle dance” of an incoming forager with good news, then use that information to try and repeat the success — bringing pollen and nectar back to the hive and handing it off to her younger sisters.
One day, she may not make it back to the hive. It’s a wild world out there, and a great majority of bees simply disappear at some point. If she makes it back to the hive with one last load of resources, she may just collapse before she can do her waggle-dance — and pushing her body out of the hive may be her sister’s first exposure to the outside.
People wonder how beekeepers can open up a hive and maintain it without facing a blitzkrieg of aggression. It’s very simple — the bees inside the hive have never seen light, much less an external enemy. All the sadder but wiser bees who might attack are far away, gathering and foraging.
Love this, shared with hat tip to my family. Thank you, cthulhu!!!
Somebody responded to this one…..
…..with Cankles old lies…..
…..let’s look at the full image…..
…..and I responded to her…..
vs as a side of beef tossed into a van, sans shoe, at that 9-11 memorial, iirc LOL
& these gems
the second view doesn’t show
Well this Interesting video, including the money info given current upheavals, is found in the comments to the bp post:
This video was disappeared from this angle most places but was found still here:
maybe it survived since Snopes is lefty controlled?
I was looking for that one where she purses her lips & looks around bizarrely. I think it was incorporated into one of those videos from that movie where the guy lifts his sunglasses & sees beyond the propaganda or something…
There were a lot of bizarre things going on with Hillary during that campaign. I wonder if that continued. I would think such things would get worse, not better, unless they were drug-induced or something. It’s strange.
Yes & completely unexplained. Why anyone would want that evil female in charge of Anything, let alone our country, is completely beyond me!
Possession… Satanic Black Magick Illumised Witch (see Doc Marquis as well as a number of books about the Klint00n White House, Christmas Tree, etc., etc.). The ornaments they put on those trees give a completely different meaning to “The Twelve Days Of Christmas”, and have NOTHING to do with Jesus Christ…
Replied on Twitter. Durham Report, p 243-289
“investigation identified evidence that certain individuals & entities sought to support the Clinton campaign… First, the Office identified certain statements that Michael Sussmann made to the FBI and the CIA that the investigation revealed were false.”
He includes Fox with the mainstream media on the umbrella.
Good call, IMO!!!
So after Friday comes Catturd day… 🙂
^^^ That one should go viral.
Is “M” the only way?
If I’m reading you right, it could be.
Huge win for life…
Excellent win, and excellent information.
Tactically, 12 weeks is how we keep this from sliding back. 12 weeks is a strong law, but doesn’t push too hard too fast.
Florida lost Jacksonville to a Dem, and IMO it’s very likely due to the 6-week abortion ban being harsh enough to scare Democrats into action.
12 weeks leaves open the first trimester, which – right now – Dems cannot motivate people to get upset about. But knock that down to 6 weeks, and it basically makes abortion a winning issue again for Dems.
12 weeks leaves a stub of Roe-v-Wade for Dems, but removes all the abortions after that, which is WAY more powerful than Roe-v-Wade could ever get.
Only some states are ready to go less than 12 weeks right now. Know you audience, GOP!
Allow me to point out that any abortion is harsh to the baby.
Of course it is, and I agree with you. But if the Demoncrats win on the issue often enough, they will instate “abortion” of children up until kindergarten.
YUP, It is already considered “OK” by college kids to have POST BIRTH abortions up until age 4 because the kids are not ‘aware’
Of course the way some of those “college kids”, and by their rationale (not ‘aware’) the deadline could be any time before age 40.
I think they’ve discussed clear up to six years of age in the Netherlands (putting the Nether back in Netherlands, I guess)…..
heads rammed up their nether lands!
I have long suspected that “legal in the first trimester, illegal after that” is a compromise between the two absolute ends that most Americans (but not the absolutist “abort until birth” or “never ever abort” camps) could live with.
(That’s going to upset people here who think it should be illegal, period, but the fact of the matter is, wrong or right, most Americans could live with it.)
A typical pregnancy is ~40 weeks, so the first trimester would be ~13+ weeks which is slightly more than twelve weeks; three calendar months (average: 13 weeks 1/4 day) would be closer but also a bit longer than 12 weeks.
Trump understands this point – how cultural change is needed to solve both the gun problem and the abortion problem, and that it is by doing the groundwork in culture, that things happen down the line for the conservative position.
I believe that an individual human life begins at (or actually “before”) conception, but even I remain torn on how much protection of embryos is needed at different stages, within the framework of the Constitution. The Founders didn’t believe that life began (with the presence of a soul) until babies started moving – which is a far more liberal stance than I believe now, since I believe odd ideas about people “existing” independently of conception. That is all religion which is not in the Constitution.
I hate being “tactical”, but I can live with being “strategic” and honest on the issue.
Frankly, I never dreamed we could get 12 weeks widely, particularly in blue or purple states. The number of states with complete bans now, is completely shocking to me. I’ll take those W’s but let’s not start a string of L’s by overplaying our hand where it does not play.
GOD Bless her, and the Republicans who voted FOR LIFE!!!
Not a win:
Another DeSantis endorsed candidate crashes and burns tonight. Democrat flips Republican held Jacksonville mayorship, defeating DeSantis endorsed candidate
The wins keep rolling in.
Yeah, that’s a great example of the Dems getting everybody out with their abortion magic (6 week ban drove them nuts), while the GOP got soft on a crucial off-year election.
Also not a win. Colorado Springs mayoral race. About six MAGA types ran in the primary, and that meant fratricide. Left standing were a flaming socialist, and a guy who is in the pockets of the developers (he was also the secretary of state before our current one, and did NOTHING about the machines, either clueless or cooperative with the steal).
The socialist won, and now All Hail Yemi, the first black mayor of Colorado Springs.
Someone should rev up the raycisssss! crowd and let them know the USDA is biased toward white milk.
Smells like Big Mike redux. (Yea, very stanky.)
They’re just evil.
Few people know that Pooh is also a cybersecurity expert. He maintains a large number of honeypot servers on his network.
I won’t pooh-pooh that claim…
Shades of Cuppa Covfefe.
Does Pooh know the real name of Azra Turk? Chris Plante still wants to know.
So those records were used by DJT as bait? That’s some seriously high level stuff.
I’m never sure what to make of reports like this. It looks as if your statement might be true. At any rate, I hope there are documents that will be released that nail the perps to the wall. Maybe it would have to wait until 2025; I don’t know.
BAIT that gets THOSE RECORDS into court…
