Dear KMAG: 20191203 Open Topic

This DELIGHTFUL DECEMBER [1203] Q’PER TUESDAY 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 / KAG! / KMAG world (KMAG being a bit of both MAGA and KAG!).



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.


However, we have a new policy. Starting 20191110. Keep it SOMEWHAT civil.

We have a new board – actually a new SITE – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation. NOT HERE.

This board will remain a REFUGE for those who need civility, either some or all of the time.


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.


SPEAK THE FIVE WORDS BOLDLY TO OUR PRESIDENT!

I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!


AND WHAT TIME IS IT?

TIME TO….

DRAIN THE SWAMP

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 remember Wheatie’s Rules:

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

Remember this?

Report: IG Horowitz Found “Reasonable Grounds” For Criminal Prosecution and Referred to U.S. Attorney John Huber…

It’s been a while, hasn’t it?

We actually went through a lot since then.

Are you getting PSYCHED for a little JUSTICE coming?

PREPARE TO ENGAGE THE ENEMIES OF TRUTH!

This point may be very critical, if the “powers that be” have manipulated the situation so that CIA assets and agents (or even FBI, in a sneaky lie) cannot be revealed, thus continuing to protect THE SWAMP.

If this is the case, given that there now appears to be incontrovertible proof that CIA is being used AGAINST AMERICAN CITIZENS POLITICALLY, then we need to demand CLOSURE OF CIA.

This is part of my point that….

WE DO NOT HAVE TO ACCEPT THE IG REPORT AS THE FINAL WORD.

If the IG report is not to our liking, then we have to demand ACTION BY TRUMP AND CONGRESS. That action can included CLOSURE of criminal, derelict, and dangerous agencies. It could even include their MEDIA OUTLETS (cough) and DELIVERY COMPANIES (cough). Their remaining legitimate functions can be transferred to “clean” agencies, with all transferred personnel on probationary status, and passing rigorous review of past involvements.

So GET READY. Our job BEGINS with the IG Report.

W

THE STORM BEGINS

Because if it ain’t happening – WE’RE HAPPENING.

    Obtaining call records from PDJT’s attorneys and Ranking member Nunes proves zealous overreach by Schiff. Will likely backfire on him in Judiciary.

    But call records are not call contents. So everybody calm down.

    We have some champs in House Judiciary who will make mincemeat pie out of Schiff before it is over. Gross factual misrepresentations. Call records from Ranking member and PDJT attorneys. Not a good look in the skilled hands of Ratcliffe and Jordan.

      Call records tell a much bigger story than call contents and anybody who understands intelligence knows this. The BIG PICTURE comes from WHO CALLED WHO WHEN. In skilled hands, one can almost guess what was talked about. THAT story leads to THEORY which can later ask for proof of what was said.

      1. I agree. Nothing makes this acceptable. Pelosi essentially set up her own judiciary and law enforcement entity in the Dem run Congress.

        Investigation of crimes or issues is to be done by the Executive Branch – the DOJ – I don’t know how this wasn’t illegal, and Schiffty and company indicted. It’s one thing to hold hearings, another to spy on your colleagues under the guise of an inquiry. DOJ should get involved. Schiffty has to be breaking the law, and hiding behind his Congressional protections to get away with this. Similar to Obama using law enforcement to spy on his perceived enemies, including using the IRS to harm conservatives.

        I hope this blows up big time.

        They’ve crossed a line. I’m looking forward to hearing from some of the conservative lawyers – Barnes_Law, Professor Cleveland weighing in on this.

            The destruction of the TRUST which keeps this country going is a serious thing. Schiffty just threw a MOAB into every American’s life in this country. What they think they can do in DC, is nothing compared to what they can do to a little person in America.

            Looking forward to seeing the legal ramifications.

            And I still think Mueller belongs in jail too. Whitey Bulger, Epstein free all those years, and now he used convicted pedophile George Nadar as a witness in his Russian Hoax to get POTUS.

            1. As I said below Shitty just blew up hundreds of years of legal precedence that will effect every single lawyer in this country if what he has done is allowed to stand.

              The attorney-client privilege is the oldest privilege recognized by Anglo-American jurisprudence and is the BEDROCK of our legal system. “the privilege ensures “that one who seeks advice or aid from a lawyer should be completely free of any fear that his secrets will be uncovered.” If that is no longer true why ever would anyone seek the help of a lawyer?

              Lawyers around the country should be screaming there lungs out at the DemonRats over this abuse of power.

    Thanksgiving emergency? Person in ‘desperate need of pies’ left money, note in ‘after hours transaction’

    BALLWIN, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Someone in “desperate need of pies” prompted police to the Honey Baked Ham in Ballwin.

    According to the police department, officers found an open door at Honey Baked Ham. When they searched the building, officers found cash and a note that attempted to justify the “after hours transaction.”

    “Happy Thanksgiving! No one was here, and we were in desperate need of pies. Left money, took pies. Thanks!” read the note.

  4. Okay, folks.
    This issue is blowing up all over social media right now.
    Within the Dem report, we see call logs from Nunes, Derek Harvey (his aid), Jay Sekulow, Giuliani, and John Solomon.
    Records were provided by AT&T.
    Dems are joyful, they think that Devin Nunes is “caught”, should resign, and it is trending on Twitter.
    I was horrified, because Schiff is investigating his Minority member and personal atty’s of the President + journalists.
    It’s the wild west.
    Records were provided by AT&T.
    So, inherently, as a non-lawyer, I know this is wrong and unusual, but I don’t know WHY.

    I asked Big T.
    He stopped spitting long enough to give me an answer.
    Remember this: Your “right” is meaningless, if you don’t know it is being violated by the government.

    Schiff has the authority to issue subpoenas. It is Schiff’s responsibility to comply with LEGAL procedure and he MUST notify the party from/about whom the information is being sought. In other words, it was Schiff’s responsibility to notify Nunes/Harvey/Giuliani/Sekulow/Solomon (one or all of them) of what he was doing.
    At that point, the party (Nunes, one or all) could go to a judge to protest the subpoena and seek to ‘squash’ it.
    Nunes (one or all) could claim right to privacy, right against self-incrimination, proper cause, anything……

    And understand, even if Nunes (one or all of them) murdered a Ukrainian oligarch, the rules are the same.

    It’s pretty obvious, Schiff did NOT notify Nunes (one or all of them) he was issuing a subpoena for phone records.
    It would be impossible to imagine Nunes, Giuliani, Sekolow, and guys like that intentionally allowing Schiff to dig through their records…….. no, would not happen.

    Therefore, what Schiff did was illegal. From Big T “Otherwise, we live in a third world country”.

    Me, still confused: Well, what if Schiff requested the docs in secret?
    Big T: In criminal law, if you need to obtain info without party’s consent, a judge has to sign off.
    Me: I effing knew it. THEY went to some bozo, Mao hat wearing, hair armpit judge, and got the subpoena!!!!
    Big T: NOOooooooooo, that would never happen.
    Me: How do YOU know?
    Big T: 1000 (a thousand ) percent, no way!!!
    Me: Why not?
    Big T: Because the judge would be fired, removed. No judge would ever sign off on that. YOU CAN’T DO THAT!
    He was screaming and spitting by the time he was done……

    Me, still confused about AT&T role in this whole farce: So why in the hell did AT&T turn them over?
    Big T, impatient with me: It’s not AT&T’s responsibility to determine merit of the subpoena, they are supposed to comply.
    Me: Well, if I’m General Counsel for AT&T…
    Big T, interrupting: It would never get to the level of General Counsel
    Me: Well, if I’m an effing law clerk at AT&T, and a subpoena comes in for Nunes (one or all), I’m going straight to my boss before I do a damn thing.
    Big T, thinking: Maybe, but the request could have been for specific phone numbers, no names, You don’t know and cannot assume in this instance.

    There is confusion and question of fact as to whether the Chair of Intel Committee would even need to go to a judge to seek a secret subpoena. He may have more broad authority granted to him.
    But questionable……… because that would give a member of the legislature authority over the judiciary, and we both doubt that would happen.

    To end
    Me: So why aren’t the lawyer pundits screaming about this?
    Big T: It just came out this afternoon, give them a chance!
    Me: I don’t understand why Schiff is not being arrested this evening!!!!!!!
    Big T, frustrated: Stop being dramatic.

    Big T, pensive: It’s very interesting the reading from everything I see says, “obtained access” and does not use the word “subpoena”…….. is AT&T complicit? We definitely need more information.

            1. Adam SHITT JUST MURDERED THE RULE OF LAW!!

              The attorney-client privilege is the oldest privilege recognized by Anglo-American jurisprudence. In fact, the principles of the testimonial privilege may be traced all the way back to the Roman Republic, and its use was firmly established in English law as early as the reign of Elizabeth I in the 16th century…

              As the privilege has evolved, countless policy justifications have played a role in its development. At its most basic, the privilege ensures “that one who seeks advice or aid from a lawyer should be completely free of any fear that his secrets will be uncovered.”….

              This is the THIRD TIME the DemonRats have stomped all over attorney-client privilege of the PRESIDENT OF THE USA!

          1. House is NOT in session over Christmas….

            The Privilege from Arrest Clause, found in Article I, Section 6 of the U.S. Constitution, protects members of the U.S. legislature from being arrested “in all Cases, except Treason, Felony and Breach of the Peace” while Congress is in session. The clause also protects members of Congress from arrest on their way to or from sessions of Congress.

            Cause of the Clause
            At the time the Constitution was written, it was not uncommon for people to be arrested for civil matters. The Protection from Arrest Clause was put into the Constitution to ensure that rival political factions could not use trivial legal matters to hinder members of Congress from participating in the legislative process. Members of Congress can still be arrested on criminal charges at any time.

    2. Anyone else remember the AT&T scandal from the early ’00s? Something about all calls made via At&T being routed through some building in San Francisco so that the three letter agencies could spy on everyone? It was shocking news at the time. I tried searching online for it, but it was so long ago that I’m not finding much. I distinctly remember AT&T being involved in some spying scandal. Not surprised in the least they’re complicit.

I’m wondering if they think they have an airtight case giving them the right to do this — but I can’t imagine any scenario where it would be permissible in the USA.

  5. Heyyyyyyyyyy, what if I told you 8 people were indicted today on 53 counts of illegally funding Hillary’s campaign in 2016?
    Guess what? It happened.
    Wasn’t George Nader a source for Mueller/Weissman????????

    “A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia indicted Ahmad “Andy” Khawaja, 48, of Los Angeles, California, on Nov. 7, 2019, along with George Nader, Roy Boulos, Rudy Dekermenjian, Mohammad “Moe” Diab, Rani El-Saadi, Stevan Hill and Thayne Whipple. The 53 count indictment charges Khawaja with two counts of conspiracy, three counts of making conduit contributions, three counts of causing excessive contributions, 13 counts of making false statements, 13 counts of causing false records to be filed, and one count of obstruction of a federal grand jury investigation. Nader is charged with conspiring with Khawaja to make conduit campaign contributions, and related offenses. Boulos, Dekermenjian, Diab, El-Saadi, Hill, and Whipple are charged with conspiring with Khawaja and each other to make conduit campaign contributions and conceal excessive contributions, and related offenses.”

    “According to the indictment, from March 2016 through January 2017, Khawaja conspired with Nader to conceal the source of more than $3.5 million in campaign contributions, directed to political committees associated with a candidate for President of the United States in the 2016 election. By design, these contributions appeared to be in the names of Khawaja, his wife, and his company. In reality, they allegedly were funded by Nader.”

    1) not detaining them with unvetted adults in mass holding areas with their supposed parents and many other adutls
    2) vetting the adults who claim these children as family to ensure that they are actually family
    3) vetting where these children are going post detention center – some are truly with a parent but the parent is Still unsafe, a criminal or taking the child to lodge with criminals.
