Dear MAGA: Open Topic 20181224

This SPECIAL CHRISTMAS EVE 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.

Remember – your greatest gift to President Trump is FIVE WORDS:


Today (Monday, December 24) is the last day of Advent – Christmas Eve.

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

SUNDAY, MAY 26, 2019

I highly recommend a visit to where you can find wonderful historical pages, including a page for that most faithful patriot, George Washington, who risked all on a cold Christmas night to save his fledgling Country. His advice to the nation upon leaving office still rings true.

  1. To those few Senators who think I don’t like or appreciate being allied with other countries, they are wrong, I DO. What I don’t like, however, is when many of these same countries take advantage of their friendship with the United States, both in Military Protection and Trade…

    1. AMEN.

      There is difference between being somebody’s friend who always gets invited to dinner, and being somebody’s chump who always gets invited to the poker game.

      Just as there is a difference between a PRESIDENT who wrote the book on dealing, and SENATORS who couldn’t play poker if their lives depended on it.

      If you want to WIN, listen to THE GUY who wrote THE BOOK.

  2. We are substantially subsidizing the Militaries of many VERY rich countries all over the world, while at the same time these countries take total advantage of the U.S., and our TAXPAYERS, on Trade. General Mattis did not see this as a problem. I DO, and it is being fixed!

  4. A medical doctor reviews open source information available about RBG’s health and opines.

    “Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg continues to be in the news as questions mount over her health and ability to serve on the US Supreme Court. Most recently, she underwent, “Surgery to remove two malignant nodules from her left lung, the Supreme Court says.”

    Yet a week ago, she was the picture of health and vigor, announcing, “My health is fine, ribs are almost repaired.” These two announcements, a week apart, don’t pass the smell test. Much like Hillary Clinton’s excellent health and fitness to serve as president despite her falls, double vision, and coughing spells…”

I would guess she could have voted BEFORE going to the hospital or, perhaps, from the hospital (can they phone it in?) before being medicated for the surgery. But, I can’t say for sure so….anyhoo, “what difference now does it make?” Even if it is illegal, who is going to do anything about it? SMH

        Frankly, at 85 years old even if they aren’t spread from somewhere else in her body and it is just a new occurrence of lung cancer it is still a very grave condition.

Im still foggy about the whole surgery but I can say this , it was a major ordeal and I was in the hospital for a good while learning to breathe operating on one lung. and this cancer was caught early, no chemo with this one thank you Lord! when I was going through the throat cancer they spotted the lung node on a pet scan and I had to wait 5 years for the lung surgery as the throat cancer was a brutal treatment. and the recovery has been quite long on the lung but I have learned to just keep on going. RBG is 85 and iam 60 if I had a heck of a time at my age I can say this its not better for her at all,the older we are the harder the recovery ect…. and I do not believe anything the media has to say about her health one way or the other as its nothing but lies lies lies. I would say her time here is quite short at this point no matter how many lungs are offered by the deranged idiots who adore her.

  5. Sorry, this is a link to the always icky USA Today. However, it was interesting to me because it provided some detail as to ways PDJT could free up money to Build The Wall, and by no means does it involve having to take it from the military. If these USA Today people are correct (and I won’t bet the mortgage on that or anything) it would seem PDJT has some viable options that could take care of the funding issue readily.

    So, again if this is true, what is that cagey fellow up to with all the shutdown drama? Heh, heh, heh. Perhaps he wants to show the world that the Dims are horses asses and perhaps he wants to pressure McConnell into eliminating the filibuster.

      2. Here’s a few snips from the article. The author of the piece has written a book, The Conservative Case For Trump. I am super disgusted by John Thune’s remarks and the statement from Sonny Perdue’s chief of staff. Grrr…. What is WITH these people?

        “…A week ago, the White House put out a call to federal agencies to look for “pots of money” in their existing budgets that could be cobbled together to pay for border wall construction. Immediately, Sen. John Thune, the Republican whip in the upper chamber, shot down the idea of shifting funds from executive departments to the border, saying, “I’m not a big fan of moving money.” Like it or not, there are sources of revenue in the executive branch that the president has authority to use without congressional approval…

        The Department of Agriculture has about $200 billion in outstanding loans for rural development projects such as community buildings, bridges, roads, fire stations, police stations, water projects and barriers such as fencing and walls. These federal loans to local communities have low default rates that are attractive to private-sector investors because they represent large, reliable cash flows — the kind of investments that big money funds desperately desire.

        About $50-100 billion worth currently held by USDA are very marketable and attractive commercial paper investments. The rights to collect the remainder of the debt on these loans could be sold to private parties who would pay a premium for such a steady stream of cash payments. The sales would give a profit cushion to the government and alleviate taxpayers from any future risk of nonpayment while retaining certain borrower guarantees.

        For example, Trump could authorize the sale of $10 billion of USDA rural water loans on the secondary market, which could bring in a lump sum payment of $12 billion or more. Revenue from these proceeds could be directed to build the border wall.

        Legal authority comes from many angles. Obama stimulus loans (approximately $2-$5 billion) could be separated out and used because they involved “no year” money, meaning the funds don’t expire if not spent in a certain time frame. The president could tap into USDA’s Community Facilities Programs money if recouped funds from the sale were used for new loans to cooperating communities on the border, such as in Texas…

        Another option would be to utilize funds in the same way USDA undertakes in-kind swaps with private parties to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars worth of commodities and services. This would entail swapping the proceeds of the commercial paper sales for the wall, with construction companies being the counterparties.

        These are only a few creative funding avenues that could be explored, some less complicated than others. Such an aggressive approach is a sure way for Trump to regain the initiative and get the attention of lawmakers who have an interest in killing any threat to their control over spending, thus giving the president leverage in negotiations as pressure mounts to end the shutdown.

        While the Constitution gives Congress power over the government’s purse strings, presidents of both parties have pushed the limits of their flexibility to use executive-branch funds free of congressional micromanagement. President George W. Bush was criticized for keeping billions in war spending off the books so it could be diverted to secret operations free from congressional oversight. Conservatives complained that President Barack Obama spent billions on health care without congressional authorization…

        Opposition to the wall within Trump’s own administration has prevented progress on this issue, which is wildly popular with the GOP’s conservative base and is the consequence of the president surrounding himself with establishment advisers who have worked to thwart his populist agenda from within. For example, after being briefed on the concept of selling USDA commercial paper to pay for border security, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue’s then-Chief of Staff Heidi Green shot down the idea by curtly stating, “The secretary does not want the wall.”….”

        1. Here’s the summary paragraph of the article as well as the CV for the author so we can evaluate him as a source at least a little bit.

          “…Minus an 11th-hour deal in the Senate, the only way a border wall will get built is if the president uses executive power to do it. He has the funds available and the authority to build the wall on his own. The only question is whether President Trump will finally start taking advice from those who actually support his goals rather than continuing to trust the internal obstructionists.”

What ever happened to pulling together and showing a united front? Disagreements need to be kept behind closed doors.

        3. FROM A RANK NOVICE ON NATIONAL FINANCE: Just starting to read but I early-on had one question: how would this affect the rural property-owners directly? Would that not expose them to possible predatory lending (not sure if that is the correct terminology) by the secondary market, with fewer guarantees and benefits to the land-owner, as well as higher interest rates?

          “For example, Trump could authorize the sale of $10 billion of USDA rural water loans on the secondary market, which could bring in a lump sum payment of $12 billion or more. Revenue from these proceeds could be directed to build the border wall.”

    T’was the night before Christmas, and all through D.C., not a creature was stirring, except Marion B.
    The streets were abandoned, the drug dealers slept. But the mayor in his limo, through Southeast he crept.
    A sliver spoon was hung from his neck with great care, in hopes that Charles Lewis soon would be there.
    When, all at once, there arose such a clatter. He halted his limo to see what was the matter.
    And what to his wandering eyes should appear? But a pile of white powder, a mountain of cheer.
    He jumped from the limo, lickety-split. Five minutes later, the mayor was lit.
    He snorted and shoveled that coke up his nose. His eyes were all bloodshot and glowed like a rose.
    Back to the limo, he ran like a flash. “Now that that’s gone, let’s go home to MY stash!”
    I heard him exclaim, with no hint of strife, “I’ll snort if I like, I’M MAYOR FOR LIFE!””

  9. With less than ten minutes to go before my self-imposed blackout for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (may make it back here after dinner), I do want to say Merry Christmas to all of you here. I’ll be honest, as a singer with three Masses in the next 24 hours including two solos and a lot of high notes, the family drama of being the calm one in a pack of hyper and strong personalities is draining. Entirely too much going on for me to really enjoy it. I’m ready for January 4!

    However, I can’t leave my favorite musical time of the year, musically speaking, without sharing the oldest of the pieces in the standard Advent/Christmas repertoire. This recording is heavy on descant, and doesn’t flow quite like chant should, but it is a good reminder that we are connected to the past in this season by the music we make. Every time period since the fifth century is represented somewhere.

    So, Merry Christmas and remember that for musicians, this is one of the busiest times of the year. If they forget to bring the frozen aquarium jello mold to dinner, forgive them.

  14. This is long but, IMO, a worthy read. I am posting this in honor of all the outstanding, intelligent, and strong women here – honor and value yourselves (in a humble way, of course)!


    By the time the Lord made woman, he was into his sixth day of working overtime. An angel appeared and said, “Why are you spending so much time on this one?” And the Lord answered, “Have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable, and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have a lap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart – and she will do everything with only two hands.”

    The angel was astounded at the requirements. “Only two hands? No way! And that’s just on the standard model? That’s too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish.” “But I won’t,” the Lord protested. “I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND can work 18 hour days.” The angel moved closer and touched the woman. “But you have made her so soft, Lord.” “She is soft,” the Lord agreed, “but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish.” “Will she be able to think?” asked the angel. The Lord replied, “Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate.”

    The angel then noticed something and, reaching out, touched the woman’s cheek. “Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one.” “That’s not a leak,” the Lord corrected. “What’s the tear for?” the angel asked. The Lord said, “The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride.” The angel was impressed. “You are a genius, Lord…..You thought of everything! Woman is truly amazing.”

    And she is! Women have strengths that amaze men. They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in, they stand up to injustice, and they don’t take “no” for an answer when they believe there is a better solution. They go without so their family can have, they go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding, their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.

    Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They’ll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love, they have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

  15. Well wasn’t the whole purpose of ISIS to create hell in the middle east so the men would move out and start the great hegria (migration) to spread the faith and subdue the west. The woman will just have to patient.

    1. It’s kind of a shame that the young men left; abandoned their mothers, sisters and wives to go live in safety… and now I wonder if they have the guts to go home and rebuild.. they should ask for forgiveness from the women they left behind… oh wait, women are just things to them and not an equal part of the culture. Never mind.

      1. I can’t figure out from the tiny, tiny illustrations what this is about.

        I presume it’s about Max Boot being called a hypocrite for his recent criticism of Trump’s order to pull out of Syria; Boot tried to claim the old headline was fake.

        So…did it turn out to be fake or not? Or is this about something else completely?

        1. Steve, you can enlarge the graphics with some difficulty (“open image in new tab” helps).

          What they’re saying is that the meme is a trap, likely from WaPo and its CIA allies. I tend to agree.

          The way it worked was this. The meme was seeded first on an obscure board, not the chans, but sure to be picked up. That is a small but important point – it’s for deniability. It grew on the internet until it appeared in places like Twitter. A few people fact-check it and discover the bottom image is fake. Max Boot himself goes out on Twitter and calls it fake. Now here is the good part. Q knows they’re hoping Trump will retweet. Instead, what Q did is reposted it with a bait response that reads correctly if he DIDN’T catch that it was fake, but even more correctly if he DID catch that it was fake. (An example of what I call a wheat/chaff sorter). Q posts that response and an anon jumps him in under two minutes to discredit. Then Max Boot jumps out very quickly with an article bashing Q – exactly as expected. But Q followers fire back and say re-read the Q tweet – he KNOWS it’s fake, and triple-called it. Max Boot was waiting to discredit Q – PROVEN.

          As I said on Gab…

          Yes – a very sophisticated self-hoax by CIA/DNC/WaPo. Q’s response makes 90% sense if he didn’t catch that it was a hoax, but 100% sense if he did (“fake fake fake”, anons playing games all day, etc.).

          Basically, Q pretended to take the bait and let WaPo set the hook and tumble back in their deck chair, proving they were fishing. Q stung the sting.

          This is the nature of spying, disinformation, and intelligence. It gets complicated.

          1. Ah cool.

            I just went back and looked at 2639, and you’re right. It does makes more sense if one assumes Q was calling it fake.

            I realize this is now a side issue but: If I can untangle this, Max Boot did NOT call for withdrawal back in April.

            1. No – the opposite. But still uninformed. He has definitely not caught up to Trump, and he’s hypocritical as hell. His world is spun around by KGB-CIA, so he has no clue that he’s basically an anti-dupe (reacts to Russia negatively on command by their CIA buddies).


              People are going to have to get Russia and the Dems’ real relationship straight to see why Mueller is controlling the “red meat” of Democrat-Russian collusion.

              Closed floors, anyone? Yeah, right. Mueller is COVER-UP more than anything else.

  17. so we’ve had our traditional Christmas Eve turkey dinner–we eat around 1 pm so we can enjoy leftovers for dinner and i don’t have to cook!). Hubby is watching Die Hard…and I’m feeling fairly badass myself, so I wandered over to yahoo to check out what’s new in the world of wrong…

    The UN says the US MUST investigate the migrant girl’s death and MUST stop child detentions. (yawn)

    North Korea is ordered (by whom??) to pay Warmbier’s family $500M…where they gonna get that??? (yawn…must be the tryptophan…)

    1. Aaah, yes, Die Hard, a true Xmas Movie. So is its sequel.

      I went looking for Die Hard two years ago, and couldn’t find it (I had lent it out; I’ve since recovered it). I decided to put in Lethal Weapon (which I’d before never seen straight through) only to discover quite gladly that it, too, is a movie set in the Christmas season.

    2. Mmm….turkey. We’re having New England clam chowder for supper with a veggie tray and smoked salmon dip and artichoke/parmesan dip, and kringle from the Danish bakery for dessert. Tomorrow is turkey and ham….

      And oh boy, Die Hard! Yippee kiyay! Love it!

        1. The kringle was so good. It has been more than ten years since I had it for Christmas Eve because I don’t eat sweets any more. Wow. I had forgotten. That delicate almond taste is so subtle and so delicious.

  18. I just want to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas.

    I haven’t been around much this past week and you will probably not see much of me this coming week also. I appreciate my Q Tree family very much, a truly MAGA bunch even though many of us are scattered across the globe.

    Stay safe, everyone, we have much to witness. 2019 is going to be a year like no other. May God Bless and Protect you all. May God also Bless and Protect POTUS, his family, his crew and their families, this day and always. Amen.

    1. Then you must know that I am celebrating (quietly) the 47th year of marriage today. To an awesome guy who rescued me from a boring life and promised me we would see the world and meet important people and by crook we did. “So now we have gone to where the hills are green and the cars are few and far. Days are full of splendor and at night you can see the stars,”. Here’s to many more cause I’m a blessed girl. Merry Christmas NYGuy!

  21. I heard the bells on Christmas Day
    Their old, familiar carols play,
    And wild and sweet,
    The words repeat
    Of peace on earth , good will to men!

    And thought of how, as the day had come,
    The belfries of all Christendom
    Had rolled along
    The unbroken song
    Of peace on earth, good will to men!

    Till ringing, singing on it’s way,
    The world evolved from night to day,
    A voice, a chime,
    A chant sublime
    Of peace on earth, good will to men!

    Then from each black, accused mouth
    The cannon thundered in the south,
    And with the soundness of a continent,
    The carols drowned
    Of peace on earth, good will to men!

    It was if an earthquake rent
    The stones of a continent,
    And made forlorn
    The households born
    Of peace on earth good will to men!

    And in despair I bowed my head;
    There is no peace on earth ” I said’;
    For hate is strong,
    And mocks the song
    Of peace on earth, good will to men!

    Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
    God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
    The Wrong shall fail,
    The Right prevail,
    With peace on earth, good-will to men!

    Christmas Bells
    By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

      1. Oh, so *that* is what you were referring to as the “Satanic Fake News Release”?

        There are several going on right now…so I wasn’t sure which one you were referring to.

        Sorry for posting that, then.
        And you betcha…it can wait till after Christmas!
