Dear MAGA: Open Topic 20181221

This SPECIAL [D] DAY / D21 / WINTER SOLSTICE FRIDAY open thread is VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA world.

Say what you want, comment on what other people said, comment on people’s comments.  Keep it civil.  Treehouse rules, but expect lots of QAnon.

Peace be upon us this Christmas. Pray for peace in Syria and for the Kurds, for our most powerful weapon is PRAYER!

Today (Friday, December 21) is the twentieth day of Advent.

The 146th day of next year, which shall be celebrated here as Ma Cankles Uranium Day, is:

SUNDAY, MAY 26, 2019

Today is the Winter Solstice, the darkest day before the DAWN.

It is believed, due to LOGICAL THINKING, that [D] Day (per Q) may in fact be TODAY, because the Winter Solstice is the DARKEST DAY in either hemisphere.

  1. if most of these, oh how do I put it nicely, A**HOLES intend on being home with families for the holidays, their constituents know right where to find them to express their displeasure at this obvious thumb to the nose at the President, their constituents, and the country.

    1. “Think about this: the same media that have demanded a Middle East withdrawal since 2004, that cheered Obama’s disastrous decision to get out of Iraq, that turned the word “neocon” into a pejorative, is now spooning with Bill Kristol and nibbling his earlobe.

      So welcome to another round of panic and “wheels are coming off the White House” hot takes and outrage and shrill declarations and anything but a pause to take a breath, a moment of reflection, an attempt at sobriety.

      I don’t know enough about Syria to hold an opinion about it. But here is what I do know…

      Trump is keeping a campaign promise to pull out of Syria. Jim Mattis did not receive a single vote from We the People in support of his foreign policy vision. And the same media and neocon “experts” who blundered Iraq and Libya are up to their old tricks — apocalyptic visions of ISIS Red Dawning into Montana if we don’t listen to their “expertise.”

      Trump might be wrong about Syria, but you will have to excuse me for not taking these people seriously:”

          Part of destroying them is to take away the cabal’s funding (war profiteering, with a political benefit as a bonus).

            1. ” trying to find the analogy I wanted”

              You succeeded!

              In whatever game, when one has an advantage, it still takes insight into how EXACTLY to exploit that advantage to maximum effect – i.e., to WIN.

              In chess, when one sees the flaw in ones opponent’s strategy (which most times they DON’T see), figuring out the way to make them make that same little mistake in perception, repeatedly, makes winning not only easier, but in the end GUARANTEED.

              In short, one hoists them by their own petard. The key is SEEING that they offered their petard for the hoisting!

              You were spot on. The actual chess-game specifics weren’t necessary.

              I AM a chess person! You MADE the point … so, we got it.

  7. Sen. Chuck Grassley asks the President to hurry, he hasn’t missed a vote and doesn’t want to start now.

    From: Francesca Chambers
    Date: December 21, 2018 at 1:31:30 PM EST
    Subject: In-town Pool Report #4d: Comments at the end of the spray

    President Trump eventually signed the First Step Act after 53 minutes in the Oval Office at the urging of Sen. Chuck Grassley, who was standing immediately behind him. Grassley’s comments were inaudible over a round of clapping, but Trump said the Republican senator told him, “Sir, there’s a vote going on in the Senate, but I haven’t missed a vote since 1993.”

    “Get out of here, Chuck, go, go!” the president said.

    Another participant said that Grassley “wants that pen” that the president was about to use to sign the bill.

    The president signed the legislation – and gave him the pen – before Grassley made his exit.

    President Trump said, “thank you everybody,” signaling that the event was done.

    Asked how long he was willing to let the government be shut down, he first said, “Excuse me?”

    And then said, “I’ll be honest. This is such an incredible moment, what we’ve just done, criminal justice reform, that I just don’t think it’s appropriate to be talking about” other things.

    The back end of the sentence was overpowered by loud clapping from attendees of the event on the recording that I have.

    As pool was led out of the room, additional questions on Syria, Mattis, etc, went unanswered.

      1. Trump is one crafty brother.

        Van Jones is the key. He’s different from most communists – he’s more of a Menshevik, less of a Bolshevik.

        Trump must have found the “Cloward-Piven” aspects of the Clinton Crime Bill, quietly destroyed them, TOOK the race card from the left without objection, turned it in for a REFUND, and paid for it all with Democrat votes that the Democrat leaders had to give up or else they would have outed themselves as commies.

        Too much winning. I was wondering why he did this. It made no sense. But then I remembered THIS PICTURE:

        The Clinton Crime Bill must have been FILLED with Cloward-Piven traps. The ONLY way to get the black communists on board would be to totally reverse the narrative. Only Trump is capable of doing such things.

        And he used super-secret squirrel Jared Kushner to do it.

          1. #7. Final one. Yes Virginia, there was a plan in Syria. This is not a sudden move. This was not a decision based on a phone call with Erdogan.
            They’ve been working on a formal withdrawal plan since February.
            From the article.
            Security Studies Group (SSG) was asked in early 2018 to draft a plan for US withdrawal, with a focus on working with allies in the region and some tribes in Syria. The concept was to work with Sunni tribes similarly to the Anbar Awakening in Iraq during the period known as The Surge. As ISIS was pushed out, the plan would be to arm and train local citizenry into militias and police forces so they could protect themselves. Kurdish forces, that had been so helpful in the fight against ISIS, were also predicted to continue to act as security for their own areas.

          “Last week the Trump administration went to the Supreme Court, asking the justices to put Tigar’s order on hold while it appeals his ruling to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and, if necessary, the Supreme Court. The government told the justices that if Tigar’s order stays in place while the appeal moves through the federal courts, it will frustrate “a coordinated effort by the President, the Attorney General, and the Secretary to re-establish sovereign control over the southern border, reduce illegal and dangerous border crossings, and conduct sensitive and ongoing diplomatic negotiations.”

It is certainly plausible that she went into the hospital either last night or first thing this morning, which would have allowed for her participation up to at least yesterday or, for that matter, even a short period this morning.

            Does not mean SCOTUS is political or vindictive.


    1. Correct me if I am wrong but this appears to be only a decision on allowing the new rules to proceed immediately – now I don’t know if that means without a full SCOTUS hearing or if it means Congress must change the law first. Couldn’t find any clarity on that in this article.

      “The Supreme Court on Friday denied the Trump administration’s request that it be allowed to immediately enforce a new policy of denying asylum to those who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border, a change that lower courts declared possibly illegal.

      Four justices — Clarence Thomas, Samuel A. Alito Jr., Neil M. Gorsuch and Brett M. Kavanaugh — would have granted the administration’s request to let the order go into effect.”

  16. Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) said Friday that Senate leaders have an “agreement” in place for a House-passed stopgap measure to avert a government shutdown which includes funding for President Trump’s border wall. 

    Emerging from a meeting in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) office, Corker said that Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and McConnell are expected to enter into an agreement on the Senate floor, according to The Hill. 

    “This is will be an agreement between McConnell and Schumer about what next happens on the Senate floor. You’ll see them to enter into a little discussion,” said Corker. “It charts the course forward that gives us the best chance of actually coming to a solution.”

    Corker suggested that a government shutdown may be averted – citing meetings with White House officials. 

    “Some of the folks at the White House seem to be optimistic,” he said, adding that President Trump “is very aware of what’s happening.”

    The potential breakthrough comes after Schumer met with Vice President Pence, incoming White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and White House advisor Jared Kushner on Friday afternoon. 

    The negotiations later moved over to the House, with Pence, Mulvaney and Kushner huddling in Speaker Paul Ryan’s ceremonial office with Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), Freedom Caucus leaders Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Republican Study Committee Chairman Mark Walker (R-N.C.).

    Corker warned that the danger of a partial government shutdown is not completely gone. -The Hill

    “It’s just how we’re going to proceed in a manner that we think is best,” said Corker. “The first discussion is not substance, it’s process.

I do have a question though…. what is wrong with a government shutdown? Truly the smaller and less (self) important they are, the better off I’ll be. They hardly get anything done when they are in session and more than half the time they are investigating crap instead of legislating. Other parts of their time includes giving interviews (lying) and campaigning/giving speeches…. I guess I am slightly jaded and more than disappointed (in my own party more often than not).

    1. there is absolutely no way you can compete with the thoughts going on inside the minds of some of these folks. i mean, you don’t even have to make debate with them – they defeat their own when their brains let them down by making an intelligent thought… 🙂

      possibly it’s a fake tweet, but i know it’s not the first time i have seen someone state almost the same thing.

    1. i think there is a portrait of someone on the opposite wall – maybe washington or maybe not…

      the windows are probably also not “glass” as we’d think of it, so it’s probable that reflections are distorted even further…

      but i’m open for speculation 🙂

      1. You’re probably right…a portrait or painting on the opposite wall.

        And yeah, glass is likely bulletproof, so…thicker than normal panes, which would tend to distort.

    2. I’m gathering that the point of that tweet is to highlight the two war time flags on either side of the George Washington portrait on the other side of the Oval Office. Maybe reading a hidden message into the photo of the President signing legislation tonight.

      1. Yes!
        I think so too, TTT…because I have determined that that *is* the portrait of Washington in the reflection.

        PDJT was also standing under it, when he did that video that he tweeted out.

        You could only see the bottom edge of the picture frame…but that is what it was.
