Dear KAG: 20191120 Open Thread

In honor of the Adam Schiff Show and all foreign service witnesses thus far in the Intelligence Committee Bore Fest.

As for mood music, since Les Mis premiered on stage on this date in 1988, a familiar anthem is in order.

Okay, so here’s the deal. This is the open thread. This is where we all come to get the news that other Q tree inhabitants think is worth knowing and sharing. Please, post links to any “news” stories quoted, and ask for help if you are stumped as to how to do that. We’re a friendly lot. Someone will be with you shortly, and there is no reason to have to press one for English.

Free speech, and the open exchange and hashing out of ideas is not only allowed, but encouraged. If we all don’t use it, we’re going to lose it. A little incivility goes a long way, though. Everyone here has closely held convictions and values. Insulting others and their way of life could turn a simple lunch into something like this:

There is absolutely no reason for infighting to result in burning down the tree, house up in the branches and all. Please, keep the tail feathers tucked and avoid lifting legs on the fire hydrants.

And now for some house keeping:

There are a few rules here in the branches of the Q Tree. Our host, Wolfm00n, outlined them in a post on New Years Day. Please, review these rules from time to time.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

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

Steve suggests – to be accurate – no shooting at the nuclear weapons, but to be safe about it, don’t event point firearms toward them. I, Deplorable Patriot, bossy chick that I am, request no teasing the animals, pets and wildlife alike. Wolf, our most gracious site owner, asks that personal assaults and threats not be posted here.

Teasing and trolling the lefties and their bastions, on the other hand is a moral imperative.


In the eternal fight against the forces of evil and darkness, unceasing prayer is always needed.

And from the readings tomorrow, a reminder to be on the lookout for the enemy before it is too late.

LK 19:41-44

As Jesus drew near Jerusalem,
he saw the city and wept over it, saying,
“If this day you only knew what makes for peace–
but now it is hidden from your eyes.
For the days are coming upon you
when your enemies will raise a palisade against you;
they will encircle you and hem you in on all sides.
They will smash you to the ground and your children within you,
and they will not leave one stone upon another within you
because you did not recognize the time of your visitation.”

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

And now, on to the day’s news…..

  1. ooops…’nother lie from Vindman…
    Congressman Brad Wenstrup — As an officer in the military, I know the importance of following the chain of command. Today we saw what happens when the chain of command is ignored. Col. Vindman testified earlier today that he didn’t take his concerns to Mr. Morrison because he wasn’t available, but that same day he took his edits to the transcript to Mr. Morrison.

    1. I have a question, for anyone.

      Why do we even have a ‘health care’ system that could be ‘destroyed’ by one stupid political act in the first place?

      Talk about handing the enemy (government) infinite leverage… we might as well have the government store our firearms for us, too while we’re at it… for a fee, naturally. Plus tax.

      Maybe we could work it like we do our cars and our lives? You know, the government holds actual Title, and we get a ‘Certificate of Title’ or a ‘Birth Certificate’?

      What could go wrong?

      Maybe we could allow a foreign corporation to set up shop, call itself a ‘Reserve’ (maybe add the word ‘Federal’ to make it sound like it’s part of the government!), so they can print money for the cost of paper and ink, and then loan it to us at face value, plus interest?

      That seems like a really good deal…

      None of this crap ‘just happened’ this way.

      All of it is planned, the result of constant pressure and effort by the criminal political-class and their financial benefactors to concentrate power and wealth in one place (the national Sewer of D.C.).

      Because CONTROL.

      And most of these people are violent PSYCHOPATHS.

      It just seems like it might be unwise to allow murderous, pedophile psychopaths to have any control over the ‘health care’ system at all… much less total control over it.

        1. We want health insurance from our employers because it’s “free” never mind that the true cost is likely more than doubled by doctors having to pay an army of bureaucrats in their practices, to file the insurance claims. (Insurance companies like to brag that they have low administrative overhead, but that’s only because they force the doctors to deal with it instead.) We got hooked on employer-paid health insurance back in WWII and it has been used as leverage on us ever since.

          1. I used to pay the bill(s) at an employer for “free” health insurance. Yeah, it’s no where close to free, and what is paid per patient, for a single, healthy individual is far more than just paying cash for an annual and the usual tests is.

            And then there’s pregnancy riders for child bearing years women. That’s another whole issue. If I’m pregnant, call the pope, although Benedict XVI, not Francis.

      1. We are all hooked into the idea of “insurance.”

        Insurance of any kind is a racket. The original idea came from the MAFIA.

        Doctors used to be paid in chickens, corn, white lightning, or some other trade goods. Of course, medical school didn’t cost a million, and they didn’t have to have “insurance” either.

        Health care is not a “right.” And people who don’t take care of themselves and are sick all the time are a drain on the system. We used to know that we were largely on our own when illness struck, so people knew some basic medicine themselves, and we ate a lot better, too.

        We are now a nation of babies who don’t know how to take care of ourselves, and rely on Big Medicine and Big Pharma waaaay too much.

      1. Polly digs into the history on Vindman and his twin.
        Good stuff.

        Whole video is good, if you haven’t had a chance to watch it…it’s worth the time.

        1. I got about halfway through it.

          Forget the Vindman twins. They’re red diaper babies. That’s pretty obvious. What was important was the mob history and information. The names she named. The C_A connection. The generational history that goes back beyond ephemera.

          Maybe it’s just that I come from a house where history is a great interest, but it’s like tearing my hair out to make the point that these stupid people in front of us are carrying out plots that were hatched decades ago by people who are dead.

          I don’t mean to pop off at you, wheatie, but I say this stuff and people whiff past it. Polly says it, and all of a sudden it gets a second look.

          For months to a year now, I’ve been sure Les Wexner is the godfather of the mob he runs as the appointed successor of Meyer Lansky, and Jeffrey Epstein was his water boy. Yes, it all connects with the red diaper stuff, and Vindman, I am quite sure, is a traitor/spy. But he’s small fish in the larger scheme of things.

    1. Watching this now before it possibly disappears forever…

      Any chance one of you social media savvy folk would be able to post the IPOT (In Pursuit of Truth) video that Polly mentions on Eric Ciarmella that Big Brother YouTube also deleted?

  4. Did anyone see what happened at the end.
    A meeting was called and all of Nunes witness requests were brought up and tabled straight away by the Dems.
    There was no warning and not many R’s at chairs and point of orders were ignored…unbelievable!!

  5. I can’t wait till PT looks into the camera and says,
    ‘This is the STORM I was talking about!’

    What I see in these hearings is an attempt to take away Excecutive powers by Dems. Maybe Is going to be the tool used to showcase the previous admins abuse…the set up.
    Also outing the media’s role in covering up…they’re going crazy!!

    Seems like this is the big build up to showcase the hypocrisy and by exposing the Bidens the rest of the truths come crashing down.

    1. Agree, She – I also think this is an attack on our Constitutional Republic – and the Constitution – this whole proceeding goes against due process and the right of the President to face his accuser(s) and defend himself.

      On the other hand – by allowing this travesty to play out in front of the American people – they can see them for who they really are – about whom they care – if they can do this to the POTUS – they can do it to anyone.

      PT said he cannot sue them – I wonder if there is some other course of action – that can provide us all with some relief – from this blatant attempt to divide us – and negate our vote.


      1. Yep
        The Great Awakening

        People are learning, opening their eyes

        From all the way over here down under I see as a civil war dominated by tech/law fare, then again I’m watching more than most here.
        It’s a shame the name infowars is already associated, is a great description of what’s going on.

        The Senate is the key…constitutional judges put in to circumvent the biased law fare attacks on the administration therefore the constitution.

        They are still looking at the hand while Trump keeps appointing judges! They are stupid.

        1. I think Q had to get a bit more focused today. Schiff played an extremely dirty trick today after Sondland’s long opening statement which was followed by Schiff and staff’s questioning which was then supposed to turn to Nunes and staff questioning but instead Schiff slyly calls for a five or ten minute break where he runs out to the cameras declares victory and doesn’t start up again until twenty minutes latter after which time every news station in the country launches into Schiff’s victory per Schiff’s words with out the benefit of cross council by the Nunes and staff.

          That was dirty as hell and may of been what prompted in part:

          20 Nov 2019 – 12:18:53 PM
          All assets [F + D] being deployed.
          [Some] who once supported POTUS [sleepers] have/will turn [puppets & puppet masters].
          Control of narrative = control of public opinion
          Control of public opinion = power

          Sure if I look back here there was some objection to the break as a dirty trick.

    1. Looks like the Senator is feeling safe – by going on the attack – Bidens – and FISA – offer him cover for now – and perhaps – it will be a while before his crimes are revealed.

  7. Looking at another website, they’ve got a link with a headline, “Why hasn’t Cory Booker’s campaign caught fire?”

    …..and my first thought is, “you didn’t use enough starter fluid.”
