Dear MAGA: 20190123

This special Go Ahead, Leftists, Make My Day post is dedicated to your thoughts on this day, as the shutdown continues, the media continue to dive into the Covington Quagmire and the Democrats continue on the path to suicide.

But first, the usual administrivia:

– – · –

As always, you can say what you want, comment on what other people said, and so on. BUT: Keep it civil. Rules much like the Old Treehouse, except of course Q discussion is not only allowed but encouraged. A couple of other important things to consider:

https://wqth.wordpress.com/2019/01/01/dear-maga-open-topic-20190101/ contains some general guidelines for things that are really, really not kosher to post here.

And Wheatie’s Rules (as amended by me):

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
  4. No shooting at the nuclear warheads.

– – · –

I think we’re in a dark tunnel right now, but that’s not Eeyorism, because I believe the light at the end is plainly visible.

The media’s credibility is in full auto-da-fé.  Even politically disengaged or middle-of-the-road people (who the Left usually can stampede) have caught on, this time.  And much legal action is on the way.  This could be IT–the effective end of the Yellow Stream Media.

The Dems are finding themselves on the short end with regard to the shutdown.  They’re going to have to come to terms with the fact that President Donald J. Trump will get his wall, “one way or another.”

But it will get worse before it gets better.  The Left is threatening violence.  We must stand firm.  More than that, we must fight back.

      1. No problem. Glad you like my posts and don’t feel I’m spamming. LOL Sotiri is pretty good. I started to follow him because he films/talks about the yellow vests in France. He has pretty good updates on that.

      1. I think would be a nice change to the SOTU address. It spotlights POTUS’ efforts to be sure to get a Senate majority and then also, we as audience members don’t have to see Nancy Pelosi sit behind the President and glare at his back and us in front. Honestly I don’t want to see her sitting up there behind him as he gives the speech. She won’t clap or stand up for anything, at least with lying Ryan we saw a clapping happy dope instead of a witch sucking her teeth. Just sayin’.

    I’m here in the OPEN early today because I have to be sleeping before tomorrow’s OPEN Topic will post. Our household has some very early events coming up for the next week or so. Will be missing out on some fun I’m sure.

    1. i’ve been hearing rumors of that the last day or so and i would not doubt it at all!

      especially since there were several with them – which while not exactly mind blowing, just seemed like they must have all figured they should wear them – OR THEY WERE GIVEN THEM!

      sad part is they are not even official MAGA hats from the president’s website but the cheap knock offs 😉

  4. Two great comments from Wayne Dupree on SOTU:

    1/ I appreciate Wayne’s reminder that the House of Representatives is the ‘People’s House’. During the O years, I recalled I’d learned that in US History class many moons ago, but no one in the media or online mentioned it a decade ago — or now. But Wayne Dupree did.

    Worth bookmarking for ourselves — and our children and/or online readers (excerpted, emph. mine):

    ‘Nancy Pelosi Closes House Of Representatives To POTUS; Denies Him Place For SOTU

    The lower chamber of Congress is called “The People’s House” and does not belong to one party or the other.’

    https://www.waynedupree.com/nancy-pelosi-donald-trump-3/

    The lower chamber of Congress is called “The People’s House” and does not belong to one party or the other. It especially does not belong to that gibbering, delusional old bat from CA who stumbles through the halls of Congress, clutching her gavel, and mumbling “my precious” like Gollum from Lord of the Rings.

    ‘Nancy just set a very bad precedent. She doesn’t want the President’s view to reaching millions of citizens without the filter of her fellow travelers in the media.’

    How true!

    2/ Wayne’s tweet on the subject:

      1. And there’s more. If POTUS does the SOTU at an alternate location and Nancy doesn’t let any of the dems go, then all the repubs will be in one location at the same time. Does that sound like the perfect opportunity for a false flag that takes everyone out at once?

        Just saw this… Hoyer said it yesterday, but I didn’t hear about it yesterday…

    1. ’68 was a busy year and events over-shadowed their capture and 11 month captivity. They are forgotten so each year I try to get them a little attention.

      From wiki: The seizure of the U.S. Navy ship and her 83 crew members, one of whom was killed in the attack, came less than a week after President Lyndon B. Johnson’s State of the Union address to the United States Congress, a week before the start of the Tet Offensive in South Vietnam during the Vietnam War, and three days after 31 men of North Korea’s KPA Unit 124 had crossed the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) and killed 26 South Koreans in an attempt to attack the South Korean Blue House (executive mansion) in the capital Seoul. The taking of Pueblo and the abuse and torture of her crew during the subsequent 11-month prisoner drama became a major Cold War incident, raising tensions between the western powers, and the Soviet Union and China. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Pueblo_(AGER-2)

    1. I am actually glad that he’s agreeing to postpone it.

      I was having trouble seeing how it would be good optics to do a SOTU address during the shutdown.
      And I am all In Favor of the shutdown!

      I’m with Steve on that…Moar Shutdown!!
      Bring on the RIFs!

      The enemedia would’ve spun it negatively, though.
      I’m sure they already have their hit-pieces written, claiming that PDJT was being ‘insensitive to the suffering of the poor govt employees’.

      But this way, it’s not Pres Trump who is postponing it…it is Nasty Nan doing it.

      The SOTU address is being postponed because of Pelosi’s Pettiness, not because our President didn’t want to do it.

    2. He said very near future. What is plain is that Nancy is not going to budge no matter what. I’m thinking maybe he might be teeing up to do the National Security Crisis Declaration for the Southern border and thus put govt back to work. Makes sense?

      Also the vote in the Senate for the President’s position on the wall, did that happen yet. If the senate gets a full 51 votes (doesn’t win the vote but) that might of been the test he was waiting for. Has it happened yet? Mitchell may of already counted the the repub votes if it hasn’t.

      1. In reverse order: No, apparently some votes happen tomorrow, both on the Trump plan and an alternative democrat one. I don’t know if they’re votes on the actual proposals or just procedural things.

        And yes, I’ve pretty much been convinced since last Saturday’s little talk that his plan is to give the Democrats every last chance to cooperate (expecting them not to), then, more than likely, say something like “I gave them every chance, they wouldn’t do this entirely reasonable thing for whatever reason, they’ve even refused to let government employees be paid, so now I have NO choice…”

        He’s waiting for the moment that will do the most damage to the opposition.

  12. I saw a headline elsewhere that Ann Coulter has a new piece out that is “brutal” to Pres. Trump. I don’t know if clicking on the link will take me to her site, and I’m not going to give her any clicks. At a time when Pres. Trump needs our support more than ever, and when conservatives need to stand together, she is undermining his efforts — if the headline I saw is correct.

  13. Important! A recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll found 56% percent of people support “Medicare for ALL” type of a plan.
    71% Support if it guarantees health insurance as a right.
    67% if it eliminates all deductibles and premiums
    When we look deeper, the support for such a plan collapses.
    IN THE SAME POLL:
    37% when people learn it would eliminate their private health care plan
    32% when they learn it would weaken existing Medicare plans
    26% when they learn it would lead to delays for tests or treatment to accommodate everyone….
    …. by this point, a whopping 70% are opposed to the idea of “Medicare for All”.

    Yes, when it’s advertised as “free” people love it. When they learn the about real costs, inconvenience, and lackluster healthcare, Americans oppose it.
