Dear MAGA: 20190401 Open Topic

This FISA FOOL’S DAY 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.

You can say what you want, comment on what other people said, and so on.

Free Speech is practiced here. ENJOY IT. Use it or lose it.

Keep it civil. They tried to FORCE fake Orwellian civility on us. In response, we CHOOSE true civility to defend our precious FREEDOM from THEM.

Our rules began with the civility of the Old Treehouse, later to become the Wolverinian Empire, and one might say that we have RESTORED THE OLD REPUBLIC – the early high-interaction model of the Treehouse – except of course that Q discussion is not only allowed but encouraged, and speech is considerably freer in other ways. Please feel free to argue and disagree with the board owner, as nicely as possible.

Please also consider the Important Guidelines, outlined here in the January 1st open thread. Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven.


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

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU.

I think it’s also a good time to pray for our country – that there be some healing, but that there be some FIXING FIRST. Like our VSG says, this can never happen again. So let’s FIX IT RIGHT.


Our movement

Is about replacing

A failed

And CORRUPT

Political establishment

With a new government controlled

By you, the American People.

Candidate Donald J. Trump

Also consider Wheatie’s Rules:

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

And though we’re going to be all serious about fixing things, let’s have some FUN today.

Who’s up for some BOWLING???!!! *wink*

No – “seriously” – if you have some good April Fool’s Day jokes, just LET ‘EM RIP!!!

    I’m still cleaning out dad’s house and also got the disturbing but somehow NOT surprising news today that my bf who has been trying for over 2 yrs to get his social security benefits hasn’t been able because…wait for it..somebobody is using his SSN.
    He’s gone to SS offices in Memphis and San Diego numerous times. They always had been “working” on it. Today I guess he came unglued and demanded to know what the hold up was.
    In memphis most of the people he’s dealt with are practically imbecils, lazy and rude. In San Diego they were better but still had to “work” on it. Poor guy’s been bustin his ass while waiting.
    Now he’s got to get his birth cert and go back again next week.
    Round and round he goes wonder who’s using his # ????????

    He’s depressed and I’m about ready to blow a gasket

      Okay, in all seriousness that is horrible. Can he contact his Congress critters office and demand they look into it? Can he file a police report?

      2. Molly,
        Just so happens that my 91 yo Father-in-law called me this morning to help him change his SSA check that is direct deposit to a different bank. He called SSA and they told him to go online; yea right my 91yo FIL doesn’t have a computer. I told him I would check on what to do and do it for him.

        Well it just so happens that a law was passed in 2013 that most, if not all Fed payments, including SSA , needed to be done that way or to a pre-paid credit card; essentially stopping all paper checks.

        So it should be easy to find out where these checks are being deposited and find the person getting his
        checks. Also in order to do this go to the link Kalbo provided and see if your bf can create his account if someone else hasn’t. If your bf can do that it should be no problem going in getting the bank information the check is going to. Then a case of Bank Fraud could be instigated.

        Or he could change the bank info to his bank then let the fool who stole his SS# deal with the SSA.
        This is a wild approach, but worth looking into. Exhausting legal means is encouraged.

    4. molly – thinking about you both, and all my best as everyone else here has stated…

      the sad fact of the matter here is this: we live in a country where it is actually HARDER to get through if you are going by the legal way, the “correct” ways, through the right channels of procedure. to be a citizen and attempt to navigate through the system is HARDER and filled with more obstacles than if you were undocumented.

      this is a fact. it is happening now. it is not new. but when you find out the direct way it affects someone (like the bf here in this case) and the HOOPS he has to jump through because someone is using his SSN. he did nothing wrong here. he is a citizen who is trying to go through the proper channels.

      and now, guess what, they want his BIRTH CERTIFICATE!?!?

      it is far easier to pass into the white house with less documents than for a citizen to be given their justly deserved SS benefits.

      this is never, ever, going to change while people still think they are “below” or “in subjection to” the ruling class and our “government”. they work for us.

    5. Odds are, everyone here cares. Though, in my case nothing tangible I can offer.

      If BF hasn’t written and called both of his Senators, House Rep and White House. Ask for their assistance. All of them have staff detailed to help with Government problems.
      https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/#page
      ^^^ May or may not help. Can’t hurt and is easy to do. ^^^
      If BF has a US passport, even expired, it may be good to bring to SS office.
      Just a few thoughts.

      Understand the pain. My son lost was a “shoe in” for a nice job. That is until the employer ran his SSN, and discovered someone else was also using his SSN.
      – Employer told him the problem. And my son’s potential for employment with them, was gone because of the SSN discrepancy.
      – He offered to bring in his birth certificate and US Passport as “proof” he was who he claimed to be.
      – Employer would not respond beyond the employment opportunity was not available to him.

      All of that aside, I would suggest everyone who contributes or contributed to SS, check their SS earnings every year. Updated statements are available annually. Latest statement can be viewed online.

  3. In the recent past, when Q posted stuff about the Denver Airport, we had a discussion about Lockheed and Martin Marietta and the stars on their logos, and the strange connections to all sorts of stuff.

    Well, today I came across a thread by @40_head that ties some of it together, and makes a case for what or who *might* be behind Boeing’s troubles that is leading to bad publicity. It’s worth a read as are the articles linked to it. The truth is out there, the question is how does this contribute to finding it.

    https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1112693081302683648.html

    There’s a lot of aerospace companies and defense contractors out there.
    11. But, there’s only one that’s truly in competition with Boeing at a billion dollar level. Lockheed Martin (LM).

    Is it possible LM would do something so terrible as to purposefully crash Boeing aircraft in order to discourage future business and investments in Boeing?
    12. LM would have to be a pretty nefarious group to do so. Maybe we should learn more about them?

    Lockheed was founded in 1926. It went through a varied amount of success and failures and was at the heart of numerous scandals that included bribery, money laundering, contract…
    13. …deadline failures, cost overruns and even potential cases of treason and espionage by violating sanctions with nations the US considered to be enemies. Several times Lockheed has provided plans or aircraft to nations the US has forbidden to receive such technology.
    14. From 1950 – 1970 Lockheed was involved in a massive black market money laundering scheme and they shared intel with numerous nations the US had prohibited aerospace business dealings with. They’ve been fined repeatedly by US courts for illegal and underhanded dealings.
    15. “Lockheed, which had to be bailed out by the federal government in the 1970s, has been involved in numerous controversies involving questionable foreign payments, cost-overruns, over billing of the federal government, race and age discrimination, and environmental racism.
    16. The Project On Government Oversight’s Federal Contractor Misconduct Database has 58 entries for Lockheed involving more than $600 million in fines, damages and other payments.”

    corp-research.org/lockheed-martin

    They’ve been reprimanded and/or fined 58 times for violations!
    17. A man by the name of Bruce Aitken, aka Mr Clean, is one of the world’s most notorious money launderers. For decades he moved cash, defrauded customers, sold things he didn’t own, and moved illegally earned money around the world for dozens and dozens of nefarious groups.
    18. The CIA and Lockheed were two of his main contacts.

    “According to Aitken, these payments were responsible for the Lockheed bribery scandals, which included a string of illicit payments between the late 1950s and 1970s, and involved the US firm Lockheed and the sale of an…
    19. …aircraft to Japan. He said the US consulate in Hong Kong was giving the orders…It was from the CIA. We made the payment to the Lockheed vice-president and somehow the money ended up in the Japanese prime minister’s hands,” he said.”

      U.S. halts F-35 equipment to Turkey, protests its plans to buy from Russia

I had looked this up after a previous incident wherein I was thinking that I might have undercooked cod (bought at Whole Foods) and been horrified to find mine had not been previously frozen and that cod are among the worst offenders. (Pictures helpfully illustrated the findings on the net)

          This sparked today’s conversation with the fishmonger.

          Because of recent health problems, we have been eating more plant based meals accompanied by more fish, chicken and lesser amounts of red meat.

          Since the cod incident, I have been consistently over cooking the fish.

          Think I will just keep on doing this.

        “As I started explaining to [my mother] what the movie was about, my mom just completely broke down, and she was sobbing through the film,” recalled Bratcher. “She told me, ‘Ashley, I need to tell you something I’ve never told you before. What you don’t know is that when I was 19, I was in the clinic for the second time, I had my name called. I was on the table being examined by a very pregnant nurse. I got very sick to my stomach, and I knew I couldn’t go through with it. I got up, and I walked out, and I chose to have you.’ It just completely rocked my world, because I had no idea.”

        Bratcher described the importance of Unplanned.

        “For the first time, America has to come face-to-face with the victim, here,” declared Bratcher. “You have to look that baby in the face as it’s being aborted. And the only other thing that’s ever done anything like this was a movie a long time ago called Silent Screen, and it was when ultrasound came about, and it showed an ultrasound-guided abortion, which is what Abby saw, and people are terrified to look at that, but we need to face it as a society. And if we don’t — if we turn a blind eye — that’s regression. … To move forward, we have to come face-to-face with this.”

    According to a report from the Philly Inquirer, a group of men in Pennsylvania is getting together twice a month to cuddle. The group was formed to combat “toxic” expressions of masculinity and heal past trauma.

    The cuddle group was established to allow men to be more vulnerable. According to some on the left, men have been indoctrinated to believe that showing their emotions is a sign of weakness….”
