Dear KAG!: 20191114 Open Topic

This Night before Daughn THURSDAY 20191114 Open Thread is very open – 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 / KAG! / KMAG world (KMAG being a bit of both MAGA and KAG!).

What would our founding fathers think of today’s Disgraceful Democrats Display of Debauchery?

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 SOMEWHAT 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 in the January 1st open thread. Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven.


SPEAK THE FIVE WORDS BOLDLY TO OUR PRESIDENT!

    1. It’s no more than a dream. The hardware the EU has available to it, for the more part, doesn’t work. Airbus transport/freight planes don’t work right, helicopters don’t stay up, most of the fighter jets are out of commission, and we’re low on spare parts, tanks that should be impregnable, aren’t, and, speaking of pregnancy, we have uniforms for pregnant INFANTRYWOMEN!, but no appropriate winter clothing for anyone else. On top of that, the single working German sub (ironic, I know) is down for repairs after having hit a dock (!) (dockkexed?).

      So a pan-European military is a pipe dream. And the new “Kommisar” of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, is the person who made Germany’s military such an awful mess. France’s isn’t much better, if at all (and don’t forget all those Moslem soldiers…). von der Leyen is a flaming globalist, as well, so just look at Davos (World Economic Forum) and Bilderberg to see what her “marching orders” will be…

    THE ONE FLAW IN WOMEN

    By the time 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?” 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 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. “Ooops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one.”

    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 and they stand up to injustice. 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 and they cry when their children excel and cheer when their friends get rewards. They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies and 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 and they have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

    However, if there is ONE flaw in women, it is that they forget their worth!!!

    1. Not true.

      The one flaw in good women is that they will 100% believe anything even remotely negative or critical about them (particularly as regards their looks) and will question/doubt/outright reject anything positive that is said about them…

      ….unless, of course, they are a democrat like Hillary Clinton and then the reverse of this holds true.

  3. “The New York Times edited a reference which accurately described the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) as a terrorist group from a Nov. 12 story, the Committee for Accuracy In Middle East Reporting and Analysis (CAMERA) found. This story appeared following an Israeli attack in Gaza that killed PIJ leader Baha Abu al-Ata.

    “The group is listed as a terrorist organization by many countries, and is supported by Iran,” the first draft of the Times story said.

    Inexplicably, that reference disappeared later in the day.”

      16) The following are questions for your consideration—hypothetical scenarios based on the unconfirmed idea that Project Looking Glass afforded certain individuals the ability to view possible events (timelines) of the future.

      17) Do the elites know that the probability of future events occurring in a given society can be determined by the collective choices of that population?

      18) Do the elites know that a population’s choices—and therefore its future—can be controlled by manipulating the emotions (and therefore the choices) of that population?

      19) Were experiments done to confirm the theory that manipulating emotions and choices could be used to cause certain desired events to happen?

      20) Do the elites use politicians, Hollywood, academia, the church and the media to influence the general population to believe that certain things are true?

      If so, why?

      21) If a society was programmed to view a country as an existential threat and they believed that war against that nation was justifiable, would that increase the likelihood that the society would choose to support such a war, making that war a likely future event?

      22) How many past events of global significance do you suppose were brought about by the collective choices of a society whose free will was unknowingly manipulated to increase the future probability of those events happening?

  8. How is everyone enjoying the democrat’s on-going game of “Trump is guilty unless he proves his innocence”?

    Funny how that’s all the media wants to talk about and DEFINITELY NOT “Why has John Durham’s investigation turned into a CRIMINAL investigation?”.

    Are you enjoying the panic and desperation on display?? Are you enjoying the pathetic attempts to keep POTUS on the media defensive and not allow even a moment to ask questions about Durham’s CRIMINAL investigation??

    How did you like Pelosi accusing POTUS of bribery today in a naked ploy to keep the focus on Trump instead of Durham??

    Are you playing into the democrat’s outrage trap and talking about Adam Schiff and democrat’s outrageous conduct when you should be talking about John Durham, Gen. Flynn, et al.?

    The channel brought out all the stops to transform the small town of David City, Nebraska into a full-fledged winter wonderland as part of its new Hometown Christmas initiative, which honors towns each year where “the Christmas spirit knows no bounds.”

    David City, home to just 2,900 people, certainly fit the bill, and for one very special reason: it’s the hometown of Hallmark Cards founder Joyce C. Hall, who was born there in 1891.”

    The entertainment industry needs to have some “corporate responsibility, former DEA chief Derek Maltz believes. ‘Cartel Crew’ is a made for VH1 docuseries on cartel life, currently in its second season, and El Chapo’s wife, Emma Coronel, is set to appear in it.

    “We are in the worst drug crisis, the worst national security crisis, and border crisis the country has ever seen and now we are going to glamorize the cartel wives,” Maltz said.

    The only thing to talk about is the death and destruction, Maltz says.

    While the United States is inundated with drugs and other horrendous crimes are perpetrated by cartels, his wife will be elevated with the added effect of minimizing what cartels do.

    The cartels are terrorists and what they do is not only our crisis, but it’s also a Mexican crisis.

      Forgotten Study: Abuse in School 100 Times Worse than by Priests
      By James Tillman and John Jalsevac

      WASHINGTON, DC, April 1, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In the last several weeks such a quantity of ink has been spilled in newspapers across the globe about the priestly sex abuse scandals, that a casual reader might be forgiven for thinking that Catholic priests are the worst and most common perpetrators of child sex abuse.

      But according to Charol Shakeshaft, the researcher of a little-remembered 2004 study prepared for the U.S. Department of Education, “the physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests.”

      After effectively disappearing from the radar, Shakeshaft’s study is now being revisited by commentators seeking to restore a sense of proportion to the mainstream coverage of the Church scandal.

      According to the 2004 study “the most accurate data available at this time” indicates that “nearly 9.6 percent of students are targets of educator sexual misconduct sometime during their school career.”

      “Educator sexual misconduct is woefully under-studied,” writes the researcher. “We have scant data on incidence and even less on descriptions of predators and targets. There are many questions that call for answers.”

      In an article published on Monday, renowned Catholic commentator George Weigel referred to the Shakeshaft study, and observed that “The sexual and physical abuse of children and young people is a global plague” in which Catholic priests constitute only a small minority of perpetrators.

      While Weigel observes that the findings of Shakeshaft’s study do nothing to mitigate the harm caused by priestly abuse, or excuse the “clericalism” and “fideism” that led bishops to ignore the problem, they do point to a gross imbalance in the level of scrutiny given to it, throwing suspicion on the motives of the news outlets that are pouring their resources into digging up decades-old dirt on the Church.

      “The narrative that has been constructed is often less about the protection of the young (for whom the Catholic Church is, by empirical measure, the safest environment for young people in America today) than it is about taking the Church down,” he writes.

      Weigel observes that priestly sex abuse is “a phenomenon that spiked between the mid-1960s and the mid-1980s but seems to have virtually disappeared,” and that in recent years the Church has gone to great lengths to punish and remove priestly predators and to protect children. The result of these measures is that “six credible cases of clerical sexual abuse in 2009 were reported in the U.S. bishops’ annual audit, in a Church of some 65,000,000 members.”

      Despite these facts, however, “the sexual abuse story in the global media is almost entirely a Catholic story, in which the Catholic Church is portrayed as the epicenter of the sexual abuse of the young.”

      Outside of the Church, Shakeshaft is not alone in highlighting the largely unaddressed, and unpublicized problem of child sex abuse in schools. Sherryll Kraizer, executive director of the Denver-based Safe Child Program, told the Colorado Gazette in 2008 that school employees commonly ignore laws meant to prevent the sexual abuse of children.

      “I see it regularly,” Kraizer said. “There are laws against failing to report, but the law is almost never enforced. Almost never.”

      “What typically happens is you’ll have a teacher who’s spending a little too much time in a room with one child with the door shut,” Kraizer explained. “Another teacher sees it and reports it to the principal. The principal calls the suspected teacher in and says ‘Don’t do that,’ instead of contacting child protective services.”

      “Before you know it, the teacher is driving the student home. A whole series of events will unfold, known to other teachers and the principal, and nobody contacts child services before it’s out of control. You see this documented in records after it eventually ends up in court.”

      In an editorial last week, The Gazette revisited the testimony of Kraizer in the context of the Church abuse scandal coverage, concluding that “the much larger crisis remains in our public schools today, where children are raped and groped every day in the United States.”

      “The media and others must maintain their watchful eye on the Catholic Church and other religious institutions,” wrote The Gazette, “But it’s no less tragic when a child gets abused at school.”

      In 2004, shortly after the Shakeshaft study was released, Catholic League President William Donohue, who was unavailable for an interview for this story, asked, “Where is the media in all this?”

      “Isn’t it news that the number of public school students who have been abused by a school employee is more than 100 times greater than the number of minors who have been abused by priests?” he asked.

      “All those reporters, columnists, talking heads, attorneys general, D.A.‘s, psychologists and victims groups who were so quick on the draw to get priests have a moral obligation to pursue this issue to the max. If they don’t, they’re a fraud.”

    Will it be under new account? “Deactivate” – just pausing, or will another be able to overtake that name, too, as the other accounts? Patriots want to reconnect

    .RULES OF RURAL NEBRASKA ARE AS FOLLOWS:

    Listen up City Slickers!

    1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.

    2. Turn your cap right, your head isn’t crooked.

    3. Let’s get this straight; it’s called a’ gravel road.’ I drive a pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you’re going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.

    4. They are cattle. They’re live steaks. That’s why they smell funny to you. But they smell like money to us. Get over it. Don’t like it? I-80 goes east and west, Highway 81 goes north and south. Pick one.

    5. So you have a $80,000 car. We’re not impressed. We have $500,000 combines that are driven only 3 weeks a year.

    6. So every person in rural Nebraska waves. It’s called being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

    7. If that cell phone rings while an 8-point buck and 3 does are coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don’t have it up to your ear at the time.

    8. Yeah, we eat taters, gravy, beans and cornbread. You really want sushi and caviar? It’s available at Jim’s bait shop..

    9. The ‘Opener’ refers to the first day of deer season. It’s a religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November.

    10. We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless of age.

    11. No, there’s no ‘vegetarian special’ on the menu. Order steak. Or you can order the Chef’s Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham & turkey.

    12. When we fill a table, there are three main dishes: meats, vegetables, and breads. We use four seasonings – salt, pepper, ketchup and ranch. Oh, yeah…. We don’t care what you folks in Cincinnati call that stuff you eat … IT AIN’T REAL CHILI!!

    13. You bring ‘coke’ into my house, it better be brown, wet and served over ice.

    14. You bring ‘Mary Jane’ into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.

    15. College and high school football are as important here as the Cavs and the Knicks… and more fun to watch.

    16. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don’t hit the water hazards — it spooks the fish.

    17. Colleges? We have them all. We have State Universities , Community Colleges, and Vo-techs. They come outta there with an education plus a love for God and country, and they still wave at everybody when they come for the holidays.

    18. Turn down that blasted car stereo! That thumpity-thump crap ain’t music, anyway. We don’t want to hear it anymore than we want to see your boxers. Refer back to #1.

    19. Four inches of snow isn’t a blizzard – it’s a flurry. Drive in it like you got some sense, and DON’T take all our bread, milk, and bleach from the grocery stores. This ain’t Alaska . Worst case you may have to live a whole day without croissants. The pickups with snowplows will have you out the next day.

    A true NEBRASKAN will send this on!!!

    20. By the way…. if you want to talk to God in Nebraska, it’s a local call.

  16. Of course, he goes on to claim it was a Western conspiracy that included killing Bin Laden and al Baghdadi!

    “President Bashar Assad of Syria said he believes that convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself.

    “American billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was killed several weeks ago, they said he had committed suicide in jail. However, he was killed because he knew a lot of vital secrets connected with very important people in the British and American regimes, and possibly in other countries as well,” Assad said Thursday, according to Newsweek.”
