Dear KMAG: 20191209 Open Topic

This Merry Warrior Monday 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/KMAG/KAG world (with KMAG being a bit of both).

Yes, it’s Monday…again.

We don’t know yet what today’s events will bring…at least, not at the time of this posting. We don’t know if the IG Report will cause splodey heads…or be a big yawn.

Either way, I see this release as a long awaited hurdle to get through.

So many things have been put off until “after the IG Report is released”…so now perhaps we will see some DeClass and see some bigger dominoes start to fall.

Let the dominoes start falling!

Meanwhile, my fellow cultists…let’s be merry warriors and point & laugh at the ongoing clown show that the Dems are putting on.

And Enjoy the Show.

      1. My son works in downtown Seattle and lives in South Seattle. He can’t stand Seattle but that’s where the good job is. I suggested that he move to Kitsap County and take the ferry to work. He’s considering it.

        I don’t think anybody likes Seattle any more. Tolerate it, mostly.

    1. I don’t feel sorry for them at all…..
      Was talking with my daughter today, and she was talking about some “friends” who have small children. The problem is that they haul their children everywhere, at all hours of the night and of course they get cranky cause they’re tired, and don’t discipline them appropriately when they mis-behave because putting a child in time out for hitting people is “bad”, but if the child hits someone, and gives kisses, that makes it okay. These sound like people that still haven’t grown up to me, just like the above woman sounds like a 13 year old.

            Also, Charles Manson died shortly after Q’s arrival. I always suspected that was the result of someone cleaning up a loose end from the 60’s era MKULTRA/spook agency programs.

            Anyways, the main point I’m trying to make is that there’s also some sort of Deep State fuckery afoot whenever Charles Manson is invoked. Filing this weird tweet away in “future proves past” folder.

Well, the owner of that shopping center owns a large apparel and white goods chain, which (since that celebration) has been faced with SEVERE financial problems, and may have to close shop.

          3. You know, this really fits with how fast we shut down information on both second shooter, shots fired in other casinos, and more. It explains why the FBI *LIED* about the acoustics. Oh, it explains stuff I can’t even talk about (unrelated) – that’s how powerful this is.

            It explains why the grisly ambulance-chasing national security GHOULS like Chertoff with their fucking SCANNERS got so much tailwind right away.

            Don’t blame Saudi! No! Don’t blame PC globalist ridiculous policies! Don’t blame coddling of venomous MUZZ and their treachery! NOOOOO! Blame AMERICANS!

            So what this did is put ALL of them in the same direction. The patriots needed to quiet things to go after Saudi. The treasonous Democrat CRAP needed cover and blame it on white males, so just go along with it and hope for their gun control.

            Oh, fuck these people. I will be blunt. If this IG report is a white-wash of Comey, or just some bullshit pass-along so they can stall and impeach Trump, then I hope patriots just put the jets in the air and just bomb the shit out of all of these deep-state fuckers to hell and back.

          Remember – Cankles had HUMA right next to her. The Saudis felt CHEATED by their MUTUAL loss to Trump in 2016.

          The second team of shooters that was spotted in videos moving where people were running out – at the perfect distance specified by Health Ranger for the second position – THOSE were probably Saudis, IMO.

          And of course the SAUDIS would make money on the operation. Them and their FRIENDS who HELPED. Or look at it as the Saudis being the helpers. Works either way.

              EVERYBODY tries to monetize on them.

              That’s why Vegas was not much different from 9/11. But this time (Vegas) the Saudis didn’t want to take too much heat publicly – because they feared exactly what happened.

I just don’t think they would tip off their marks–either double cross gun sales or assassination attempts–with suspicious behavior like stock behavior. And none of it explains the occult symbolism and numerology. Why even bother with the symbolism for gun sales or assassinations?

            911*, Purple Revolution colors, Shiva symbolism (three parallel lines), a “Harvest” of white country music fans, all in front of a pyramid, two towers, and Satanic hand signs.

            3. No – you aren’t getting me about the gun sales thing. I have extensive explanations of this in prior posts.

              It’s a MINOR part, but it’s an IMPORTANT part. It’s not a purpose – it’s a tiny part – the COVER to REEL IN THE PATSY. Paddock needed to be given a REASON to bring all the guns, which were not a true and “good” gun sale collection like a REAL pro sale (legal or illegal). Nor were they a good set of guns for the operation that took place from that room. But they WERE a good set for a STORY that I would use to reel him in.

              That story is simply “we want to buy your guns off paper – bring them all and we will give you big bucks”.

              He fell for it like a ROCK.

              You have to reel in the patsy. They TESTED Paddock on it, too, with the other “guns into the casino” trips. And then they had him come early to make sure he brought the goods.

              Top planning is Hillary and her crew. THAT is where the occult enters – AT THE TOP. She has to show power to keep power, etc., etc. – all the stuff you’re saying.

              So this is like a junior 9/11 from Cankles and the Cabal to “get Trump” plus gun control, etc.

              But they NEED that patsy. That is where they lure in Paddock, offering him top cash for HIS guns, in the casino, hush, hush, just help us out here, we’re just poor rich Saudis, come up to our floor with your GUNS in OUR casino.

              I believe that Paddock was ambushed at the sale, held captive while the op went down, executed and left behind.

              Saudi pros in the room. Saudi pros at the second location. Saudis maybe even in the air, or FILMING with the choppers, which is what I would do if I was them.

              Bet Cankles and the others would want those films? And that’s why the Saudis in the room are not shooting at their own helicopters.

              THEIR military (faction, team) provided the muscle. THEIR military had all the planning – all the data they needed from OUR people who wanted it done.

              AND logic. I think all these people who saw Trump as a problem wanted him FINISHED one way or another.

              And our patriots struck back in Saudi soon afterwards.

              The gun sale is ONE SMALL LIE TO A SUCKER.

                This is JUST LIKE CA3 where the IC had UNION people taking care of small jobs on the ground.

                Let’s assume our Brennanoids were running Vegas. They have SEIU tasked with whatever information, hacks, data, etc. They CONTROL the ground with SEIU. Make them add in operative Campos. They are also going to bring in Ellen later. They’re also working with – DRUMROLL – Saudi factions – BECAUSE BRENNAN.

                Making sense?

                They are also keeping tabs on Paddock b/c he’s an FBI informant, so they have total NSA on him. And who knows – maybe he has a CIA hat, too, but in any case, the Brennanoids have the drop on Patsy Boy.

                Oh, just think how this looks from THEIR point of view. They are gonna screw Trump so bad here!

                Once you see the Vegas operation from IC command and control, using ALL these compartmentalized people, it’s a DREAM JOB. And they get to use all this occult symbolism that makes their “masters” happy. Gotta PLEASE THE BOSS.

Deep State would rather have us all believing that some bad gun deal led to a mass shooting than believe that multiple state actors were involved.

              4. I remember those early “gun sale” theories and I just couldn’t buy them. The thing that always bothered me was that his collection was really wrong for a professional gun dealer – just terrible. And why would an AMATEUR gun sale even bother going into a casino?

                SO – I threw that all out. But I kept the idea of a sale of some kind, because it was weird that he brought a lot of guns that he didn’t need and would not be terribly useful. I just needed a theory that could use them. And the patsy theory, to me, really works with a sale to the Saudis. The Saudis weaponize the “we’re just rich, stupid people with LOTS OF MONEY and we don’t know what we’re doing – come make a lot of money on us” schtick very well, and they do it ALL THE TIME.

                I think that the number of guns Paddock brought prompted those gun sale theories. They just needed a fuller context to explain most of the story, so the gun sale itself didn’t have to.

      And they are going way outside the ‘arc’ of where bullets could have come from the Mandalay windows.

      If there was only “one shooter” who was firing from the Mandalay…then why were they cleaning the whole concert grounds for spent rounds?

      1. wow, never saw that one before. At the time I was harping on the shells at the church nearby. Why would there be shells there? Why did they cordon it off some amount of time if there was only one shooter at the hotel?

        1. Here are the other two videos.

          They’re kind of boring…but you get to see the scope of the area that they are scouring for bullets.

          A lot of the vids that I had bookmarked, vids about the shooting, have been scrubbed from Youtube.

          They missed these.
          Probably because these are obscure and do not talk about what is being shown here.

              2. our driveway goes all downhill…but we sit on a mountain–not at the top…so as snow melts it runs downhill, right? well it seeps through the hill behind the house onto the driveway and all the way down…and because it’s nearing winter…the sun doesn’t rise too far over the mountain behind the house. so there’s not enough strong sun during the daytime to DRY up the water–then it refreezes overnight. we’d need a salt truck running up and down the driveway daily to fix this mess. Once the temps get into the 20’s constantly, it freezes hard and a little snow on top provides traction somewhat but this seesawing in temps makes it slick and dangerous.

            1. I saw your discussion w/ Duchess on ice issues & had a couple of thoughts to share (there wasn’t a reply button there…).

              My husband & son have both bought “snow chains” online, based on tire size, that are easy to put on & take off (you don’t have to move the vehicle), so they can use them on unplowed “2-track” back woods roads for hunting season & they seem to work great.

              My grandpa used to attach some type of ice walking device on the outside of galoshes (don’t know what it was called, but small metal w/ spikes–like cleats on sports shoes) that let him walk easier on ice…

              Mountain climbers use something on their boots/shoes, called Crampons, I believe, to navigate on ice…

              Perhaps one or more of these ideas might help you &/or your husband get around more safely during winter. Also, kitty litter can work as an alternate to sand for gaining some traction, my daughter carries some & a shovel in her pickup during snow season. Blessings

              1. thanks for the ideas!
                my son is an ice climber and he gave hubby a pair of crampons and he’s got those in his truck if he has to cross the stream on foot…
                we’ve been discussing our situation her for years…if there’s only a few inches of snow on the steep driveway, he rarely plows as the snow provides some traction. it’s the thick wet heavy snows that are the problem. and our foot of snow was preceded by about an inch of ice…so plowing the snow exposed the ice. then driving on it to and from work, makes it worse.
                additionally, the seesawing temps are really not helping either…it melts during the day..runs down the driveway and refreezes overnight…sigh.
                it’s really beautiful where we live, but every rose has its thorn…
                again thanks for the suggestions!

  6. quid pro quo

    FTA
    Obama gave Pearson Publishing $350 million to create Commoncore text and Pearson gave Obama a $65 million dollar book deal in return.

    Quid Pro Quo.

    Media silent…
    Pearson Publishing was paid for Commoncore but Penguin Random House Publishing did the Obama book deal. But there is commonality with the two:

    From Wiki:
    Penguin Random House was formed on July 1, 2013, upon the completion of a £2.4 billion transaction between Bertelsmann and Pearson to merge their respective trade publishing companies, Random House and Penguin Group. Bertelsmann and Pearson, the parent companies, owning 53% and 47%, respectively.

    In July 2017, Pearson agreed to sell a 22% stake in the business to Bertelsmann, thereby retaining a 25% holding.

    Quid Pro Quo

    Same as Obama’s stance on net net-neutrality benefited Netflix, now Netflix hires Obamas to produce their “Higher Ground” shows to the tune of millions.

  8. how much of a bugger does Mitch wanna be? he could (if he had to) arrest Warren and Sanders to compel them to return to Senate (from the campaign trail and possible Iowa caucuses) for the impeachment trial in the Senate…LOL
    FTA
    Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and other Senate Democrats running for president might find themselves pulled off the campaign trail for the trial of President Trump, or face arrest, a former Senate parliamentarian told The Post.

    Should Democrats in the House of Representatives formally impeach the president — something that is widely expected by the end of the year — a January Senate trial is almost certain. The president’s fate would then be decided by a vote of 100 senators, with a two-thirds majority required for his removal.

    The timing, however, couldn’t be worse for many of the party’s leading lights, who could be compelled to come off the campaign trail to sit for weeks just before voting begins.

    “The senate collectively has the power to compel the attendance of absent senators and the Senate collectively acts by its majority and Mitch McConnell is the majority leader. So he has the ability,” former Senate parliamentarian Alan Frumin said. “If push comes to shove, compelling means arresting. ”

    It could even mean sending the chamber’s Sergeant at Arms to Iowa to collect truant senators if need be, said Frumin, who spent 19 years in the position and is one of the foremost experts in the rules and procedures of the body.
