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:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone

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

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

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

Auntie DePatโ€™s requests:

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.

ACTS 20:28-38

28Take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church of God which he obtained with the blood of his own Son. 29I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; 30and from among your own selves will arise men speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after them. 31Therefore be alert, remembering that for three years I did not cease night or day to admonish every one with tears. 32And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified. 33I coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel. 34You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my necessities, and to those who were with me. 35In all things I have shown you that by so toiling one must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, `It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” 36And when he had spoken thus, he knelt down and prayed with them all. 37And they all wept and embraced Paul and kissed him, 38sorrowing most of all because of the word he had spoken, that they should see his face no more. And they brought him to the ship.

JOHN 17:11-19

11And now I am no more in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. 12While I was with them, I kept them in thy name, which thou hast given me; I have guarded them, and none of them is lost but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled. 13But now I am coming to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14I have given them thy word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I do not pray that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them in the truth; thy word is truth. 18As thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. 19And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth.


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.

All sorts of details about her life are available at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stormy_Daniels .

Her current husband (#4, since 2022) is Barrett Blade, another porn actor. Husband #3 was another porn actor, the father of her daughter, and edited approximately half of the porn films in which she has appeared — after which he divorced her amid accusations of adultery. I suppose that you’d be pretty darned certain after editing all those sex scenes.

You’ll be relieved to learn that she considered becoming a journalist after graduating High School, but decided to earn a living more honestly.

Sorry I wasn’t clear. She’s on her fourth husband since she was young — this one has been her husband since 2022.

There are tests that can be run on parts. Unfortunately that is what ISO 9000 and the ‘Quality Revolution’ CUT OUT. We are now seeing the fallout (snark intended) of those ‘new’ policies.

THANKS WTO!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

This explains why the CHICOMS took over WTO. So their crappy shit could be sold without nosy questions about quality.

Gail Combs

YUP!!

Quality types hated ISO!

Bean counters find a couple concepts within the โ€œquality revolutionโ€ very attractive.

  1. Do not duplicate effort by repeat testing, eliminate incoming Quality Inspections
  2. Develop a relationship with one source instead of wasting resources on qualifying several sources
  3. โ€œJust In Timeโ€: Since the source is pre-qualified and no incoming testing is required raw materials can arrive on the same day as needed eliminating warehouses and jobs. These means you have no chance to reject poor quality raw materials.

First because of the โ€œQuality Revolutionโ€ a version of ISO was developed for the food industry. It was called HACCP and was published as an international standard in 1993 by Codex Alimentarius. In 1995 Mil Std 105 E was declared obsolete and in 1996 HACCP was adopted by the USA.

Pathogen Reduction/Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Systems rule, on July 25, 1996: Under the HACCP rule, industry is responsible for assessing potential food safety hazards and systematically preventing and controlling those hazards. FSIS is responsible for verifying that establishmentsโ€™ HACCP systems are working ..www.fsis.usda.gov/PDF/Evolution_of_RBI_022007.pdf

Notice how this ruling has shifted the focus of audits, both government and private from testing for disease to the paperwork documenting the โ€œQuality Management Systemโ€. Second rigorous incoming inspection has been drastically cut if not eliminated by the corporations receiving raw materials.

In 1987 the methods used by ‘Quality Leaders’ were quantified as a set of quality manufacturing standards called ISO 9000. I was one of the first to get training in ISO 9000 here in the USA. I was impressed by the first half of the presentation and during break started discussing what I had learned with my seat-mate. He was not at all impressed. He was originally from Russia, and he told me that the Soviet Union had used the same kind of system for years, and that and it generated paperwork, not quality. Twenty years later I, along with other quality professionals, agreed with him.

…โ€I’m wondering if there might be a silent majority of Quality [magazine] readers out there on the topic of ISO 9000. The response to my July editorial, “Eliminate ISO 9000?,” was the heaviest that we have received in some time…What surprised me is that the July editorial elicited no ardent rebuttals in defense of ISO 9000…โ€ http://www.qualitymag.com/Articles/Letters_From_the_Editor/65730ee7f4c38010VgnVCM100000f932a8c0

I did some digging. So far, my favorite parts follow:

https://apnews.com/article/jim-justice-state-address-a12de9e80e68f1432e377bfaaef1df76

He refuses to use teleprompters or speak from a script, and his staff has admitted they are often as surprised as anyone by what he says or does. 

Usually at Justiceโ€™s side โ€” or on his lap โ€” is his grumpy-looking English bulldog, Babydog, who sometimes dresses up, such as when she wore a hat with a giant bow for a briefing ahead of the Kentucky Derby. 

In 2022, Justice ended his televised address by flashing Babydogโ€™s rear to the crowd in response to singer and actress Bette Midler, who called West Virginians โ€œpoor, illiterate and strung outโ€ in a tweet after Manchin refused to support President Joe Bidenโ€™s Build Back Better agenda.

โ€œBabydog tells Bette Midler and all those out there: Kiss her heinie,โ€ Justice said, grinning, to a standing ovation.

Gail Combs

I find this… APPROPRIATE.

Jim Justice once rejected a legislative budget by showing a plate of cow dung he brought from a farm to the state Capitol on a silver platter. He hoisted the hind end of his pet English bulldog in the House chamber in response to criticism. And he was always ready with a poster board or prop to illustrate a point….

Sounds like if he is elected he will at least be entertaining. ๏ปฟ๐Ÿ˜†๏ปฟ

Also in his favor: “…A former billionaire who owns dozens of businesses…”

So at least he is not another know nothing lawyer looking to line his pockets.

ForbesThe Deadbeat Billionaire: The Inside Story Of How West Virginia Governor Jim Justice Ducks Taxes And Slow-Pays His Bills

(Many wealthy people are slow paying bills. That is because they understand how INTEREST & money works.)

March 30, 2021 – He is a coal mining billionaire, with an estimated net worth of $1.5 billion. He is the 36th governor of West Virginia. He owns (along with his kids) some 100 companies. He was elected as a Democrat, but switched parties once in office…

ForbesGov. Jim Justice No Longer A Billionaire, After $850 Million Debt To Insolvent Greensill Capital Revealed

March 30, 2021 

….the coal industry has deteriorated, and with it, the Justice family fortunes. In 2015, after coal prices plunged, the Russians insisted that the Justice family buy Bluestone back. So Justice paid $5 million for his old company, but also assumed some $300 million in environmental and legal obligations. Justiceโ€”in new court documentsโ€”says that the Russians left behind a shambles. โ€œThe business had been mismanaged under Mechel ownership, burdening it with substantial reclamation, union and trade obligations.โ€…

BOY! Forbes does not like the guy!

Oh and LOOKY what comes up in the google/brave search at the top.

Investigation reveals so called ‘election integrity’ groups are undermining NC elections
1:33PM OCTOBER 13, 2022

Since 2020, groups devoted to investigating election processes and hunting for alleged voter fraud have sprung up across the country. A new story in The Guardian [The UK GRONIAD??? ๏ปฟ๐Ÿ˜†๏ปฟ Looks like we have ARRIVED!] by reporters Jordan Wilkie and Laura Lee examines those efforts in North Carolina through the lens of the North Carolina Election Integrity Team (NCEIT) โ€“ a group that claims to be nonpartisan but is backed by several conservative power players. WFDDโ€™s April Laissle spoke with Wilkie about the groupโ€™s origins, and how some of these efforts may affect the midterm elections. 

Going to the top of the article:

This group has taken the idea of requesting public records to an entirely new level where they’re basically spamming records requests to county boards of elections that have never seen this frequency of records requests or even the scope of individual records. And now in order to fulfill their legal obligation to answer this records request, elections officials are standing at scanning machines, scanning one scanner’s length of poll tape at a time. They go through these really long tapes to these records that are from 2020, which is a settled election that was audited, that was certified in a bipartisan way. And it sort of seems like an absurd use of their time.” [AWWwwww POOR BABIES, they actually have to DO THEIR JOB?]

On undermining voter trust:

“There’s an interesting separation between the calls to action, the things that people say they’re going to do, and what actually happens. And in a lot of these cases, what actually happens is sort of irrelevant because the point of a lot of this action nationally โ€“ the point of Donald Trump coming through in 2020 and saying ‘vote by mail, and then go in person’ is to make people distrust the election process. So once people distrust the election process, and it doesn’t really matter whether or not they have a bunch of poll observers showing up on Election Day harassing people, the point is that people already distrust what’s happening.”

So what is this group?

Allow me to point out that most of these FOIA-type state laws are for inspection of originals and copying if desired. THERE IS NO REQUIREMENT FOR THE GOVT TO COPY ORIGINALS. At best, the govt must provide a designated area with equipment in order for the requestor to copy the originals.

Example: a request is made for ballot envelopes. The govt is ONLY required to provide access to the originals and possibly one official to oversee the copying if desired. No oversight is required for merely examining the envelopes. The requestor can be required to make certain that the envelopes are kept in the same order in which they were stored.

A govt employee making copies is a choice of the govt, not the requirement of the law [in most cases]. The govt does the copy scam scheme so it can increase its budget allocation and also to conceal possible irregularities by setting the quality of the scanner to a lower d.p.i.

One thing that cannot be seen using only copies is the quality/color of the ink used for signatures and the handwriting characteristics of the signer [such as pressure used in making the signature, causing impressions in paper].

Gail Combs

That is GREAT insight. Also they can PICK AND CHOOSE what they copy.

Michael Cohenโ€™s ex-lawyer to nuke Cohen’s tale before Congress: โ€˜Habitual liar, totally unreliableโ€™
Tomorrow’s testimony should be interesting.

While Michael Cohen, the disbarred lawyer and convicted perjurer, stars as the prosecutionโ€™s chief witness at Donald Trumpโ€™s Manhattan trial, House Republicans are offering a powerful counter story Wednesday: unflattering testimony backed by contemporaneous memos from Cohenโ€™s ex-lawyer portraying the former Trump fixer as a โ€œhabitual liar and totally unreliable witness.โ€

In testimony prepared to be delivered to the House subcommittee on the weaponization of government, prominent New York defense attorney Robert Costello will tell lawmakers that Cohen told his lawyers back in 2018 that he had concocted himself the hush-money scheme that Trump is charged with and had no incriminating evidence against the former president.

Costello, once the deputy chief of the Manhattan U.S. attorneyโ€™s office’ prestigious criminal division, alleges in his prepared testimony obtained by Just the News that Cohen repeatedly insisted that Trump had done nothing wrong when he was debriefed in 2018 while federal prosecutors were investigating whether Trump violated any election laws in 2016. Ultimately, federal prosecutors chose not to bring charges…

A Trans Archdeacon Who Teaches that God is a Witch and Jesus is a Woman? Say Hello to the Modern Church of England  Leaked documents last week revealed how Winchester Cathedral apparently now plans to remodify its choral foundation in line with its new-found main priorities not of worshipping God, but of instead increasing โ€œreach and accessโ€ and โ€œdiversity and inclusionโ€. It turns out the only sins Christ truly died on his cross to redeem were those of white, Western, cisheteronormativity. Cathedral authorities hope to achieve this holy aim by replacing the current choristers with a โ€œvariety of singers from other parts of the regional demographicโ€.

IMO, the “failure” of Trump’s first term was almost exclusively caused caused by the Republican Party.

1) They (Ryan et al.) supported him in no significant respect, either legislatively or rhetorically. Just the opposite. This was a huge impediment to many great things which could have been easily accomplished.

2) The Republicans (McConnell) in effect dictated to Trump the employment of traitors and shills. Those who needed confirmation had to go through McConnell. I also believe that Trump at first was being what he thought of as “reasonable” in agreeing to certain people. I do believe Trump underestimated the hatred and evil he faced, given his basic decency the lack of decency was just not fathomable early on.

Nonetheless, Trump had a highly successful first term, all the more admirable because of evil ankle-biters and liars who investigated him.

I am still reluctant to reach a judgment on Sessions, but his actions were objectively a grave disservice.

kalbokalbs

Bingo.

Including Sessions. IMO, Sessions totally, totally screwed up. Played into Uniparty.

I believe Sessions, while a decent enough human being, was a coward. Like Jimmy Carter before him, he was too soft for his position.

One can be gentle on the outside, but without a stainless steel spine, a person has no business in a position of authority.

Aubergine

I hope that’s true.

TheseTruths

It might be true, but it is pure speculation presented as fact. IMO we need to be careful about that.

Robert Baker

I agree with your judgment, but it did not stop Trump from throwing Sessions under the bus. The lack of information makes it hard to assess their relationship, but I have been disappointed in Trump’s tendency to burn bridges.

Check out all the work he is doing every day on https://www.justice.gov/news . Expand it to see all days. Then, you can cross-check that with https://home.treasury.gov/news/press-releases?title=&publication-start-date=&publication-end-date=&page=3 โ€ฆ Then, you get a bigger picture of what these guys are doing. They are shutting down criminal operations globally.

https://t.co/ZxxRMVHR08

The Fake news would never tell you.

As far as sealed indictments go, there are some indications they could go ‘stale’ However there is RICO. If a criminal Enterprise has been working for decades, say sex trafficking little kids for 40 years, you don’t get to toss the early crimes because the statue of limitations ran out.

Lurking Lawyer here. Follow up to a late subcomment on a previous thread, with more clarity. If the supposed presser is timed to IG report release, then based on Sessions comments, McCabe firing, and Nunes memo, here is what is going on.

Sessions explicitly said had brought in an experienced non-DC DoJ prosecutor. That means somewhere in flyover country. Inference is to work alongside IG, who can only refer crimes for prosecution.

We know there were crimes, because McCabes firing was for โ€˜lacking candorโ€”including under oathโ€™. That is codespeak for criminal federal perjury 18USC1621. McCabes Saturday statement shows Comey also committed perjuryโ€”same statute.

Trump tweeted this weekend, just left out the legal part (but he surely knows). We know from the Nunes memo on FISA court abuse plus Comeyโ€™s sworn testimony about the dossier being unverified plus McCabes sworn testimony that without it there would have been no FISA warrant or renewals that Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Comey, and probably McCabe made false attestations about the Steele dossier to FISA.

Those are all felonies under 18USC1018 (and diGenova says there are a total of six feloniesโ€”one suffices for this comment). We know from Comeyโ€™s mid 2016 announcement about Hillary and her email server that Hillary is guilty under 18USC798, which does not require intent and is the same statute used to send the navy submariner to prison for year (who Trump just pardons, which means he and Sessions know a lot more about what I am saying than they are letting onโ€ฆ And just to round up, it is highly likely that Strzok, Page, both Ohrs, and others gave false statements to the IG early in his investigations, in violation of 18USC1001 โ€” the same felony to which Mueller forced Flynn to plead guilty.

Now, where does this lead? The flyover country prosecutor has impaneled a secret grand jury. He is presenting them with this evidence. There is no need for the grand jury to hear witnesses on any of this. They are returning sealed indictments on all of the above named. Remember, Trump rally chants of โ€˜lock her upโ€™ were more of a campaign promise to be kept. The DNC and Hillaryโ€™s campaign paid Fusion GPS to pay Steele for the dossier, when OHR met Steele in London and reported back to FBI in writing that Steele was rabidly antiTrump (per Nunes memo).

More than enough reason for Trump to direct his white hat team to proceed on HRC. Only thing I donโ€™t know is whether they can also get Obama. The Susan Rice CYA email about the Jan 5 WH meeting (especially if there were priors) written as Trump was being inaugurated suggests maybe yes.

So my quite educated guess is that the rumored presser will be Trump and Sessions unsealing all these prebaked indictments (the Big Ugly unveiled), with diGenova then to unpack it all to stunned Dems and MSM. And that will nicely set the midterms table for Crumbs Pelosi, Shutdown Shumer, the Dem stiffed DACA deal (a brilliant Trump gambit), and a lot more.

Pre-existing Flyover country prosecutor and his flyover country Grand jury are for actual federal crimes. See previous comment enumerating specifics against a number of individuals including McCabe, Comey, Yates, Lynch, and HRC.

But the issue of the FBI violating its Woods procedures FISA process is both deeper and wider than crimes. IMO this supplemental process is to illustrate how and why so much went so wrong in order to restore public confidence in the Woods procedures. Secondarily, it shows DoJ being โ€˜responsiveโ€™ to Congressional oversight (Nunes memo) the day after Sessions had to be reported angry with Wray that Goodlatte had to issue a subpoena for slow rolled FBI info.

Some of this is likely kabuki for the public rather than actual substance. For example, this OIG announcement implies Nunes is credible, Schiff is not. Remember this is inside the Beltway playing to the upcoming midterm elections in flyover country.

Remember POTUS Trump is a SHOWMAN. His TV show, The Apprentice, was done to not only scope out Hollywood, but to learn ‘Acting’

I think POTUS Trump was recruited early on. Some indicate an anti-deep state team has been working since the assassination of POTUS Kennedy and even before if you think of G.Edward Griffin.

Given the assassination of Kennedy and the attempt at Reagan, I think that team has been very very careful about revealing what they are up tp.

RICO is very complicated.

SEE: https://graham.main.nc.us/~bhammel/INS/RICO.html

And note the only Statue of Limitation is for CIVIL crimes.

Congressional Research Service: RICO: A Brief Sketch
Updated August 3, 2021

18 U.S.C. ยง 1964(c) (โ€œAny person injured in his business or property by reason of a violation of section 1962 of this chapter may sue therefor in any appropriate United States district court and shall recover threefold the damages he sustains and the cost of the suit, including a reasonable attorneyโ€™s fee, except that no person may rely upon any conduct that would have been actionable as fraud in the purchase or sale of securities to establish a violation of section 1962. The exception contained in the preceding sentence does not apply to an action against any person that is criminally convicted in connection with the fraud, in which case the statute of limitations shall start to run on the date on which the conviction becomes final.โ€)

I thing that means, after the state takes their BITE, individuals get their chance.

The heart of the crime lies in the agreement rather than any completed, concerted violation of the other three RICO subsections.48 Unlike the general conspiracy statute, RICO conspiracy is complete upon the agreement, even if none of the conspirators ever commit an overt act toward the accomplishment of its criminal purpose.49 Contrary to the view once held by some of the lower courts, there is no requirement that a defendant commit or agree to commit two or more predicate offenses himself.50 It is enough that the defendant, in agreement with another, intended to further an endeavor which, if completed, would satisfy all of the elements of a RICO violation.51 In some circuits, both the government and private litigants may be required to prove the existence of a RICO qualified enterprise.

…The statute of limitations for a RICO criminal prosecution is five years, 18 U.S.C. ยง 3282; United States v. Schiro, 679 F.3d 521, 528 (7th Cir. 2012)

18 U.S. Code ยง 3282 – Offenses not capital

(a)In General.โ€”

Except as otherwise expressly provided by law, no person shall be prosecuted, tried, or punished for any offense, not capital, unless the indictment is found or the information is instituted within five years next after such offense shall have been committed.

I get the feeling that the portion of the RICO law that I saw under Trump, that allowed older crimes within a RICO enterprise to be included, got wiped in a ‘one liner’ within a very large bill like the budget.

That would acct for not finding the info.

It also means the Cabal can not be prosecuted for all the nasties they have been doing for decades.

Robert Baker

DP, I have heard similar comments many times over the last 8 years, but I don’t remember anyone who identified who did the recruiting. Do you have an opinion on who that may have been?

Robert Baker

thank you.

ALSO Trump went to a military school for 5 years as a teen.

Some where I read (One of his books???) that a sergeant employed by his school was his mentor. Trump spent five years at the school, starting in 1959, when he was 13.

On top of that was some skuttlebutt about Robert Walsh, co-founder of the John Birch Society knowing Fred Trump. It is certainly possible.

Remember G. Edward Griffin is a much maligned member of the John Birch Society.

WIKI: (Worth reading given what we now think maybe true.)

Welch enrolled in high school at the age of ten and was admitted to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill at the age of twelve, the youngest student ever to enroll there… Welch attended the United States Naval Academy and Harvard Law School but did not graduate from either institution…. [Obviously NOT dumb! -GC]

Welch founded the Oxford Candy Company in Brooklyn, New York, a one-man operation until he hired his brother James to assist him. James Welch left to found his own candy company in 1925. The Oxford Candy Company went out of business during the Great Depression, but his brother’s company, the James O. Welch Company, survived, and Welch was hired by his brother. Welch became director of sales and advertising for the company. The company began making caramel lollipops, renamed Sugar Daddies, and Welch developed other candies such as Sugar Babies, Junior Mints, and Pom Poms. Welch retired a wealthy man in 1956…

 Fred Trump was still the biggest builder in Brooklyn NY…

Fred Trump went on to erect more than 2,000 homes in Brooklyn between 1935 and 1942. 

Barb Meier

I was thrilled to see a number resign or be fired. hehehe

James Comey – I had tears in my eyes at the news of his immediate firing.
Anthony Scaramucci
Omarosa
Andrew McCabe
Lt Gen H. R. McMaster
Rod Rosenstein (resigned)
John Bolton

All the above were fired except Rosenstein.

Robert Baker

I lost track of Rosenstein. Did anyone ever make a final determination whether Rosey was friend or foe to Trump? I have heard people take both sides of the question. Of those you list I believe all had their own agenda, but I never had that opinion about Sessions. It seemed to me Trump’s rhetoric concerning Sessions was unwarranted especially since he had praised about everyone on your list until they stabbed him in the back.

Barb Meier

Wikipoo has this. Interesting connection of his wife with NIH until 2011 and her involvement with the FBI’s Carnivore.

Post-government career

Rosenstein joined King & Spalding in January 2020, a white-shoe international law firm. He works primarily in assisting clients with federal investigations.[93]

Rosenstein has served as an adjunct professor, teaching classes on federal criminal prosecution at the University of Maryland School of Law and trial advocacy at the University of Baltimore School of Law.[16]

Personal life

Rosenstein is married to Lisa Barsoomian, an Armenian American lawyer who worked for the National Institutes of Health until 2011. They have two daughters.[16][94] As a government attorney, Barsoomian represented the United States in various matters, including Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) cases, and the FBI‘s “Carnivore” surveillance system, which monitors and captures e-mail.[95][96] Rosenstein resides in Bethesda, Maryland.[97]

Rosenstein is a registered Republican.[1][98]

He was a member of Washington D.C.’s Temple Sinai, a Reform Jewish congregation, from 2008 to 2014.[99] According to a questionnaire that Rosenstein completed ahead of a hearing with the Senate Judiciary Committee, he was a member of a Jewish Community Center‘s sports league from 1993 to 2012.[99]Rosenstein served on the board of directors of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum from 2001 to 2011.[99]

Why would a Republican reside in Bethesda? He must enjoy being ruled by Democrats.

I very much agree with you. I do not think we have seen the last of Jeff Sessions!

What is happening with the sealed indictments we do not know, but IIRC RICO allows you to string together a bunch of ‘like crimes’ done by the same group over a long period of time. So if you as a group, have a network that has been sex trafficking little kids for the last 40 years, YOU DO NOT HAVE the early crimes wiped due to the statue of limitations.
(Funny how I can not find that URL on RICO any more…)

Lurking Lawyer here. Follow up to a late subcomment on a previous thread, with more clarity. If the supposed presser is timed to IG report release, then based on Sessions comments, McCabe firing, and Nunes memo, here is what is going on.

Sessions explicitly said had brought in an experienced non-DC DoJ prosecutor.

That means somewhere in flyover country. Inference is to work alongside IG, who can only refer crimes for prosecution. We know there were crimes, because McCabes firing was for โ€˜lacking candorโ€”including under oathโ€™. That is codespeak for criminal federal perjury 18USC1621. McCabes Saturday statement shows Comey also committed perjuryโ€”same statute.

Trump tweeted this weekend, just left out the legal part (but he surely knows).

We know from the Nunes memo on FISA court abuse plus Comeyโ€™s sworn testimony about the dossier being unverified plus McCabe’s sworn testimony that without it there would have been no FISA warrant or renewals that Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Comey, and probably McCabe made false attestations about the Steele dossier to FISA.

Those are all felonies under 18USC1018 (and diGenova says there are a total of six feloniesโ€”one suffices for this comment). We know from Comeyโ€™s mid 2016 announcement about Hillary and her email server that Hillary is guilty under 18USC798, which does not require intent and is the same statute used to send the navy submariner to prison for year (who Trump just pardons, which means he and Sessions know a lot more about what I am saying than they are letting onโ€ฆ And just to round up, it is highly likely that Strzok, Page, both Ohrs, and others gave false statements to the IG early in his investigations, in violation of 18USC1001 โ€” the same felony to which Mueller forced Flynn to plead guilty.

Now, where does this lead? The flyover country prosecutor has impaneled a secret grand jury. He is presenting them with this evidence. There is no need for the grand jury to hear witnesses on any of this. They are returning sealed indictments on all of the above named. Remember, Trump rally chants of โ€˜lock her upโ€™ were more of a campaign promise to be kept. The DNC and Hillaryโ€™s campaign paid Fusion GPS to pay Steele for the dossier, when OHR met Steele in London and reported back to FBI in writing that Steele was rabidly antiTrump (per Nunes memo). More than enough reason formTrump to direct his white hat team to proceed on HRC. Only thing I donโ€™t know is whether they can also get Obama. The Susan Rice CYA email about the Jan 5 WH meeting (especially if there were priors) written as Trump was being inaugurated suggests maybe yes.

So my quite educated guess is that the rumored presser will be Trump and Sessions unsealing all these prebaked indictments (the Big Ugly unveiled), with diGenova then to unpack it all to stunned Dems and MSM. And that will nicely set the midterms table for Crumbs Pelosi, Shutdown Shumer, the Dem stiffed DACA deal (a brilliant Trump gambit), and a lot more.

The UNBEATABLE OCTOBER SURPRISE:

Republican Congress makes VETTING VOTERS in FEDERAL ELECTIONS, based on STATE IDs that ILLEGALS can RECEIVE (California et al), a FEDERAL FELONY with a MANDATORY SENTENCE.

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/08/19-illegal-aliens-charged-for-voting-in-2016-presidential-election/

I have had my own theories about Sessions and PDJT that involve saving lives of thousands of children who are in the control of demonic souls. Could the delays and apparent inaction of AG Sessions and the public feud with PDJT be cover for buying time to find and save as many children as possible? What is more important than saving children from this torture?

If the sex-slave owners knew that law enforcement were hot on their trail, what would they do with the childrenโ€”kill them? Destroy the evidence?

Is it plausible that the thousands of indictments are connected to eradicating these high level pedophile rings? Is MS-13 involved?

I will end with this statistical fact:

๏ปฟ  :wpds_arrow: ๏ปฟ During the 8 years of Obamaโ€”about 1000 arrests were made related to pedophilia and child pornography. During the first 18 months of President Trumpโ€”almost 3600 arrests were made. Is this what President Trump and Attorney General Sessions are really doing?

I do not knowโ€”but the 3600 arrests is approximately 20 times the rate of the Obama administration.

interesting take on the cohen affair. The author believes that cohen pleaded guilty to the 2 counts of campaign violationsโ€“EVEN THOUGH THOSE CHARGES WERE NEVER LITIGATEDโ€“to (1) avoid all the years in prison he would face for what he was guilty of and (2) by pleading out the election charges, a prosecutor could use him (that guilty plea) to imply to a jury that these ARE real crimes that President Trump was also guilty of.

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

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 โ€œfaith my fearsโ€ 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 Iโ€™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, Amen.

WALK BY FAITH

Blessed are they who believe outright;
Who have eyes to see โ€“ and His insight;
Who have heard His Word โ€“ and abide in it;
Who โ€“ through His Spirit โ€“ simply intuit!

Faith โ€“ is a leap into the unknown โ€“ unseen;
It requires obedience โ€“ pure and pristine;
When the voice of the Spirit โ€“ guides the heart;
The unforeseen fear will quickly depart!

Faith is belief โ€“ the assent of the mind;
To the truth of another โ€“ from behind;
Resting on the authority โ€“ of the Spirit;
Judgment less evidence โ€“ you will merit!

Faith is relief โ€“ the release of the mind;
Godโ€™s revelation of the highest kind;
Confidence comes โ€“ from the mind of God;
A wondrous gift โ€“ to whit we are awed!

Belief in the scriptures โ€“ is the basis of faith;
The being and perfection of God โ€“ is a wraith;
Through Jesus Christ โ€“ and His revelation;
Our faith in Him โ€“ brings this elevation!

Faith is confidence โ€“ in the promises of God;
Without which through life โ€“ in fear โ€“ we will trod;
The truthful declarations โ€“ in His Holy Word;
Are accurate acclamations โ€“ be rest assured!

Faith is not speculation โ€“ it is truth;
A gift from God โ€“ He granted in youth;
With certainty in what โ€“ God has declared;
Inspired by Him โ€“ cannot be impaired!

Faith is correctness โ€“ assurance of heart;
That God will uphold us right from the start;
Adherence to the truth is beyond reproach;
With sincerity โ€“ honesty โ€“ above approach!

If you have faith like the mustard seed;
You will not sin โ€“ in word or in deed;
Faith will uphold you โ€“ through turmoil and pain;
With confidence โ€“ in His Word โ€“ you will gain!

Step forward in faith โ€“ leave fear behind;
Let faith be an asset โ€“ to body and mind;
Trust in His Word โ€“ and His veracity;
Let His grace increase โ€“ faith capacity!

Thank you so much for the wonderful inspirational things you post to the board every day, and especially for today’s things and for your poem.

I believe that the mustard seed is always there — even if it’s been neglected or forgotten for years; even if it hasn’t been watered by faith for years; even if the person has turned away from the Almighty God.

All it takes for the mustard seed to re-awaken and grow is for the person to recognize that the Almighty God IS; that transgressions, once acknowledged and confessed to the Almighty God WILL be forgiven by Him; once the person commits to living a cleaner life based on Belief.

Prayers ongoing for you here and at Marica’s blog. Be well.

Add to the restaurant closures with 100 Red Lobsters announced yesterday. I have even noticed customer traffic down in the good independents and chains around here in tourist country. Walk right in during peak periods and immediately be seated and served. The link below is pretty much why. There are even less people in Sam’s and Costco.

We have reached the tipping point on disposable income.

https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2024/05/federal-reserve-chair-admits-confidence-rattled-wholesale-inflation/

Notice all the auto companies now begging for business since interest rates have gone up? Same with all disposable income purchases like furniture, appliances, home improvement, etc. Having major sales in non-traditional periods of model changeover. Inventories go up, lay offs happen, etc. etc. Prices drop over time because there are far less buyers. So if you were savvy enough to build cash reserves and reduce debt during the period of idiocy, you can win bigly as it all trends down and as PDT changes the game in his next term.

The only way out of misery in this country is PDT and MAGA. No PDT and MAGA, expect it to get worse, because BRICS+ is beginning to make an impact on world economies. As I stated before, I expect the criminal cabal to stand down on his election and try to throttle him through a major election cheat in Congress and using the deep state administratively. We will soon see just how much the patriots are in control.

This area’s economy is so dependent on tourism it is ridiculous. Have no idea how they plan to fill jobs and house people for what is here and what is being built. Illegals cannot fill most of these type jobs. Help wanted signs are EVERYWHERE. Chik-fil-A paying $17 per hour plus bennies to start while begging people to work. Crazy stuff.

This is too bad, but if you go into a war zone, you are taking your chances:

“One of the at least 20 doctors trapped in Gaza on medical missions saved Democratic Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth life in the Iraq War, according to a report.

Adam Hamawy, of New Jersey, is one of the over 20 doctors that the U.S. Department of State was working with the United Nations (UN) and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) to rescue from Gaza, The Intercept reported Monday. The doctors reportedly are in Gaza on medical missions at the Gaza European Hospital in Rafah.”

There are weird things visible in the painting. People are doubling the image and so forth. I can see what they are seeing. It is a very strange portrait.

A โ€œRestaurant Apocalypseโ€ Is Starting to Sweep Across America, and That Is Really Bad News for the U.S. Economy

(The Economic Collapse Blog)โ€”You can get a really good idea how the U.S. economy is doing by watching restaurants in your area. When the economy is booming, restaurant parking lots are full and chains are feverishly establishing new locations. But when the economy is struggling, restaurants get a lot less traffic and poor performing locations get shut down. Sadly, in 2024 it appears that a โ€œrestaurant apocalypseโ€ has started to sweep across America.

Most people have very little discretionary income to spend as a result of our cost of living crisis, and that is particularly true for our young adults. Americans under the age of 40 love to eat out, but these days most of them are experiencing financial stress, and this is having an enormous impact on the restaurant industry.

This has major ramifications most people do not see because it is not just restaurants.

Back to my old notes:

People esp ‘economists’ forget small business. There are a LOT of one to ten person shops out there. They hire a person or two even if it is just casual labor for a day or two or a week.

April 29, 2013 What America’s $2 Trillion Underground Economy Says About Jobs

…. most of these new participants in the underground economy are ordinary hard-working Americans who are increasingly taking jobs that pay “under the table” either because nothing else is available or they need a second source of income to make ends meet.

America’s underground economy is nothing new, but since the Great Recession hit,[The Obummer years] experts estimate it has doubled in size, driven by unemployed or underemployed people desperate for income….

US gov Small Business Website: 2010 LINK

Small firms accounted for 65 percent (or 9.8 million) of the 15 million net new jobs created between 1993 and 2009โ€ฆ. An estimated 552,600 new employer firms opened for business in 2009, and 660,900 firms closedโ€ฆ.

Small businesses losing out to red tape
http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/forum/2010-10-21-mellor26_st_N.htm

โ€ฆ.cities and states stifle new small businesses at every turn, burying them in mounds of paperwork; lengthy, expensive and arbitrary permitting processes; pointless educational requirements for occupations; or even just outright bans. Today, the Institute for Justice released a series of studies documenting government-imposed barriers to entrepreneurship in eight cities. In every city studied, overwhelming regulations destroyed or crippled would-be businesses at a time when they are most needed.

Time and again, these reports document how local bureaucrats believe they should dictate every aspect of a personโ€™s small business. They want to choose who can go into which business, where, what the business should look like, and what signs will be put in the windows. And if that means that businesses fail, or never open, or can operate only illegally, or waste all their money trying to get permits so they have nothing left for actual operations, thatโ€™s just too bad. This attitude would be bad enough in prosperous times, but in a period of financial strain and high unemployment, itโ€™s almost suicidally foolishโ€ฆ..

April 13, 2017 Red Tape Burdens on Small Businesses
https://www.americanactionforum.org/insight/red-tape-burdens-small-businesses/

Itโ€™s well-known the regulatory burden falls disproportionately on small business. American Action Forum (AAF) research has discovered they are shedding jobs and wages are falling because of the Affordable Care Act. In addition, as regulation increases, the number of small business establishments decreases, while the largest businesses grow more numerous. Based on AAFโ€™s latest research, the paperwork and compliance burdens alone total more than 3.3 billion hours and $64.6 billion. Given that compliance affects small businesses more acutely, each new hour of paperwork means less productivity, fewer profits, and diminished competitiveness, relative to larger competitors….

Now if we can get the states, towns and cities to give small businesses relief from idiotic regulations some of those underground businesses can come back into the regular economy. [This is what POTUS Trump was trying to do to unleash the US Economy.]

The 2013 Federal Register contains over 80,000 pages of new rules. As the Dollarites showed only a large corporation who hires a full time legal staff has any hope of steering clear of traps in those new rules and in the new laws with completely off topic amendments attached. The Dollarites, whose kids raised pet rabbits and sold them, fell foul of a one liner in an unrelated bill that amended the Animal Welfare Act years after the original law was passed.
USDA fines family up to four million dollars for selling bunny rabbits

…the Dollarhite family of Nixa, Mo., first started raising and selling bunnies as part of a lesson to teach their teenage son about responsibility and hard work, they had no idea they would eventually meet the heavy hand of the US Department of Agriculture (USDA). According to a recent article covered in Breitbart’s Big Government, the USDA recently ordered the Dollarhite family to pay more than $90,000 in fines because they sold more than $500 worth of rabbits in a year — and if they fail to pay the fine by Monday, May 23, the fine will multiply to nearly $4 million….

On top of that you need a compliance staff. I worked for a company with a small thirty man staff. After a new law was passed we had to add 3 more people, 10% of the employees, to do nothing except deal with the additional paperwork required. That cost YOU money.

Argument for whatโ€™s certain: regulations hurting economy
http://thebusinesstimes.com/argument-for-whatโ€™s-certain-regulations-hurting-economy/

As a private citizen do YOU have the time to read 80,000 pages of new regs a year not to mention court cases. (Courts can make laws. It is called case law.)

These regulations make it almost impossible for people to start and grow a small business. EVEN WORSE THEY TARGET YOU AS A CITIZEN TOO!

http://agovernmentofwolves.com/2014/08/04/were-all-criminals-and-outlaws-in-the-eyes-of-the-american-police-state

โ€œNever in the civilised world have so many been locked up for so little.โ€โ€”โ€œRough Justice in America,โ€ — The Economist

Why are we seeing such an uptick in Americans being arrested for such absurd โ€œviolationsโ€ as letting their kids play at a park unsupervised, collecting rainwater and snow runoff on their own property, growing vegetables in their yard, and holding Bible studies in their living room?

Mind you, weโ€™re not talking tickets or fines or even warnings being issued to these so-called โ€œlawbreakers.โ€ Weโ€™re talking felony charges, handcuffs, police cars, mug shots, pat downs, jail cells and criminal records.

Consider what happened to Nicole Gainey, the Florida mom who was arrested and charged with child neglect for allowing her 7-year-old son to visit a neighborhood playground located a half mile from their house.

For the so-called โ€œcrimeโ€ of allowing her son to play at the park unsupervised, Gainey was interrogated, arrested and handcuffed in front of her son, and transported to the local jail where she was physically searched, fingerprinted, photographed and held for seven hours and then forced to pay almost $4000 in bond in order to return to her family. Gaineyโ€™s family and friends were subsequently questioned by the Dept. of Child Services. Gainey now faces a third-degree criminal felony charge that carries with it a fine of up to $5,000 and 5 years in jail…..

House Hearing, 112 Congress
CAUGHT UP IN RED TAPE: THE IMPACT OF FEDERAL REGULATIONS ON SMALL BUSINESSES AND CONTRACTORS

https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CHRG-112hhrg76478/html/CHRG-112hhrg76478.htm

…..small business owners are most likely to say that complying with government regulations is the most important problem facing them today. That is more than taxes and more than the overall economy. The Gallop poll is mirrored by numerous trade association surveys, such as the one conducted by the United States Chamber of Commerce in March of 2012. That Chamber study found that almost half of small business owners said regulation is a greater threat to their business than taxation and litigation combined. Similarly, a poll conducted by the National Federation of Independent Business found that 63 percent of respondents believe the rules issued by the federal government have done more to hurt small business and 74 percent believe that the federal government should focus on creating jobs instead of issuing new rules and regulations. The message is clear–small businesses need Washington to stay out of the way.

Small business owners face unique challenges in navigating federal regulations. According to the study, The Impact of Regulatory Costs on Small Firms,” published by the SBA’s Office of Advocacy in September of 2010, small businesses face an annual regulatory cost of over $10,500 per employee, which is 36 percent higher than the per employee regulatory cost facing large firms. It is oftentimes more expensive for small firms to implement regulatory rules and to abide by regulations than it is for large businesses.

And while regulations certainly have benefits, they also have costs that are barriers to entry, distort markets, and divert scarce capital away from job creation. Small businesses simply do not have the resources to navigate the ever-increasing maze of federal regulations….

Colonel O’Cain:

Maybe I should start by explaining the difference between a large business and a small business. A large business, all these problems that Mr. Mulvaney has alluded to regarding regulations are not a problem for large business. They are a cost, but not a problem, because in each one of those areas where a regulation has to be complied with, they simply have a vice president or senior vice president or director with an army of people who take care of all that. They make all the right submissions and they do not get in any kind of trouble with the government, because they have the resources to be able to do that.

But mom and pop, they do not have these vast resources to call to help them navigate their way through these shark-infested waters. It is daunting enough that a number of small businesses will not even try to do business with the government because they see that it is too complicated, too complicated.

And then there are other small businesses who want to do business with the government and they attempt to do business with the government. Because resources are vital to them, financial resources, they generally try themselves. So they will go online and search websites and read this site and that site and what-have-you. And normally after a few weeks, they are more confused than when they started. They have no idea where to start to begin doing business with the government, and if they think they have begun the process, they have no idea when they are done. How do you know when you are done. How many certifications does it take before you can actually submit a bid and negotiate a contract with the government….

We do pony rides because, so far they are not regulated. We used to do a petting farm but we got caught by the same one liner the Dollarites did, after one confrontation with an animal rights activist/USDA agent we quit.

That is what really makes me angry. We did petting farm in all black neighborhoods. The kids thought goats and sheep were DOGS! ‘Them Dogs gonna bite me?’

It was really sad.

Even worse I was in the process of taking a very large trailer and converting it into a ‘show & tell’ for schools.

I had fiber animals including angora rabbits, cashmere & angora goats, wool sheep and even an alpaca. I had clothes made from each type of fiber. I had examples of the different wools plus cotton as it came from the field, a spinning wheel and several hand spinning Drop Spindles for the kids to try their hand at making yarn.

And remember…because this is the state level, it’s constitutional. It’s part of the “police powers” left to states.

In some ways our constitution didn’t go nearly far enough…but states wouldn’t have ratified it, if it would have infringed on their petty tyranny, corruption, and general busibody-ness

Some of it, like the USDA aggression, is federal via the much butchered Commerce Clause.

SteveInCO ยท Thermonuclear MAGA

True, that part is not, or shouldn’t be.

I admit I skimmed it but everything I noticed was state level bullshit.

Gail Combs

Believe me there are a WHOLE heck of a lot of Federal level regs. too.

Something as simple as Compost:

EPA: Composting guidance for operators
Find compost permits and regulators

Composting is a business, and is regulated by both State, Local (county, township, city) officials for many impacts, including environmental impact (leachate, air emissions); neighbor issues (odor, traffic) and operational issues (safety, end product).

STATE: ALABAMA

Regulatory Agency: Alabama Department of Environmental Management Land Division

State Composting Regulations (PDF): Alabama State Regulations 

Permit Requirements: Chapter 335-13-14-.04: No person may receive, store or process solid waste for composting without being properly permitted by the Department of Environmental Management Land Division.

.

.

Notice that did not say SELL! Just store and process.

I’m skimming through and didn’t read every word, so I don’t know if this was said: Redicing regulations was one of the things Trump implemented during his presidency.

Seeing six demon faces along the center line. Also seeing the inner sleeve makes a pair of rabbits staring back at each other and in with in that on one side only is a woman’s face.

A profile of a face also looks toward the edges of the painting just left (and right) of Charle’s heads. At first, it reminded me of a big cat roaring, but it could also be a demon. The nose looks flat.

My patch is in a corner with two sides woods. However it does have a south and a west exposure and is not in the shadow of the trees.

Mine certainly get more than 6 hours of sun.

Well I guess I will not kill off all the milkweed in my one pasture. It is a patch about 40 ft X 20 ft.
