Dear KAG: 20200121 Open Thread

Welcome to the new Tuesday open thread where the Classical World’s god of war will be front and center. The day, in fact, in every language is named for him.

And given that our source known as Q has all but said it’s showtime, Mars is front and center. It’s on, and we’d best be ready.

A little mood music is in order.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out.

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.

A quick word from our Eternal Sponsor via the Prophet Isaiah:

Do you not know? hath it not been heard? hath it not been told you from the beginning? have you not understood the foundations of the earth? [22] It is he that sitteth upon the globe of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as locusts: he that stretcheth out the heavens as nothing, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in. [23] He that bringeth the searchers of secrets to nothing, that hath made the judges of the earth as vanity. [24] And surely their stock was neither planted, nor sown, nor rooted in the earth: suddenly he hath blown upon them, and they are withered, and a whirlwind shall take them away as stubble. [25] And to whom have ye likened me, or made me equal, saith the Holy One?

[26] Lift up your eyes on high, and see who hath created these things: who bringeth out their host by number, and calleth them all by their names: by the greatness of his might, and strength, and power, not one of them was missing. [27] Why sayest thou, O Jacob, and speakest, O Israel: My way is hid from the Lord, and my judgment is passed over from my God? [28] Knowest thou not, or hast thou not heard? the Lord is the everlasting God, who hath created the ends of the earth: he shall not faint, nor labour, neither is there any searching out of his wisdom. [29] It is he that giveth strength to the weary, and increaseth force and might to them that are not. [30] Youths shall faint, and labour, and young men shall fall by infirmity.

[31] But they that hope in the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall take wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.

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

  1. Trump supporter murdered by “antigovernment” subordinate in Florida. Stabbed to death with a trowel. Bernie bro????

    “AFlorida man has been arrested for murdering his Trump-supporting boss in a political argument at a highway construction site and placing an American flag next to the body, deputies say. 

    Mason Toney, 28, who held anti-government beliefs, allegedly killed his boss William Knight, 28, who was a supporter of Donald Trump, on Monday January 20. 

    Toney was arrested and charged with first-degree murder for Knight’s killing, according to an arrest affidavit from the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.

    A preliminary report revealed the murder weapon was a trowel, a tool used for brick laying. 

    Mason Toney, 28, allegedly killed his boss William Knight, 28, who was a supporter of Donald Trump, on Monday January 20

    Worker found Knight’s body and an American flag draped next to it

    They were lifelong friends and worked at the Florida turnpike construction site in metro Orlando at the time of the incident. The murder scene pictured above

    Deputies were called to the scene around 10.30am on Monday with people calling in saying Toney killed their boss along the Turnpike near State Road 528

    Coworkers told investigators that Toney and Knight were friends outside of work, despite their political differences. 

    Knight was described as an ‘outspoken American who was ‘pro-Donald Trump’. Toney was described as ‘anti-government’ and ‘very outspoken in his beliefs that the government is bad and out to get him,’ as per the arrest affidavit. 

    On the day of the murder Knight had picked up Toney for work and they were driving to different job sites when they started to argue, workers at the Florida turnpike construction site in metro Orlando said. 

    When they arrived at the Turnpike site workers heard Knight yelling for help by an exavator. 
    Toney was charged with first degree murder and is being held in Orange County without bond
    After the stabbing Toney took off in this white pick-up truck before being caught by police
    Workers ran over and saw Toney standing over Knight stabbing him with a trowel. 
    Workers tried to stop Toney by throwing items at him, but he then moved towards them holding what they thought was a knife. He then got into a truck and drove off, calling his coworkers terrorists as he sped off. 

    Workers found an American flag and the flag’s packaging next to Knight’s body. 

    Witnesses said that Toney showed up for work that day with a backpack which was highly unusual for him, according to the arrest affidavit.  

    Deputies were called to the scene around 10.30am on Monday with people calling in saying Toney killed their boss along the Turnpike near State Road 528. 

    Toney ended up crashing during a brief pursuit in Brevard County. He’s now being held without bond in Orange County. 

    ‘He was a friend of the family. My son went to elementary school with him and to middle school and high school,’ William Knight’s father said to WESH. 

    The killing comes as a shock to the Knight family who said Toney was a generous and loving friend to Knight.  

    ‘He would give his shirt off his back to anybody, feed anybody,’ he added on his son.”

    1. It is not wrong to pray for justice – imho – I know it is difficult – but – we must bless those who curse us – pray for our enemies – as Jesus asked us to do – and leave it up to God to determine what they deserve –

      I think the dissolution of the D Party is is a ‘project in process’ – they have splintered – as PT has frequently said – they stick together – and now – who is sticking together – the R Party – for the most part – with a few stragglers

      I also think the D Party is in the process of destroying itself – as Q said – do not interrupt an enemy when he is in the process of destroying himself.

    2. wolf, NO…our Pastor just finished preaching on imprecatory Psalms…and how it is perfectly legitimate for us to pray for God to deliver justice to the evil ones. David actually did quite bit of this.

      1. This amount of overkill seems to justify my initial thoughts on this. Trying to start an Ebola like panic.

        Coronavirus causes respiratory symptoms….it’s flu season….lots of colds can be a coronavirus.

        Not discounting the possible severity in someone with lots of co-morbidities or chronic illness, but I’m taking a wait on see stance on this.

          1. Hand washing is #1 either soap and water or hand sanitizer, use buggy wipes at the grocery store or wal-mart. Coronavirus is a pretty common respiratory bug….of course they are hyping the mutations and severity….meh…put on a mask and wash your hands 😉

            Hope your kiddo gets over it quick. They pass stuff around at school or daycare like the plague

  4. If we’re going to do impeachment for 2 weeks, I need to make cue cards of insulting adjectives. You know, add your own subject + verb and I can supply the insulting adjective.

              1. There weren’t reply buttons below so…

                Years back I was reading Lone Survivor to my 2 oldest sons & was saying All the words so as not to censor the author. Well, we don’t/try not to cuss in our house & hearing me read the words was traumatizing to these guys (they were not yet in High School). I think then I would just say D— rather than dang for damn etc. Some years later after most of our kids were HS age & heard numerous F-bombs in their school every day we lightened up & everyone decided to use D-, H-, A- etc when needed which seemed a decent compromise…

                Daughn’s story below reminded me of an incident years ago with one of my husband’s close friends. He was in Russia & had been drinking a lot & wanted to take a cab. When the cabbie found out they were Americans he didn’t want to take them anywhere. So R, who knew some very basic Russian proceeded to attempt to cuss the guy out & it totally cracked up the driver. He ended up saying something about if he wouldn’t drive them “I’m gonna give your mother-in-law a good F-ing”. Well the cabbie thought that was so hilarious that he wanted to take them to his bar & buy them all drinks!

                Anyway I agree that there could be a Q Tree version of verbiage that would apply to the Schiff show. I’m thinking something along the lines of Clark Griswold’s rant after learning he’d been gifted the Jelly of the Month Club rather than a substantial check as a Christmas Bonus (from Christmas Vacation)…

  8. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. The Trump rally in Wildwood is going to be huge. All my Jersey Shore friends are really pumped up. First time they can remember a Republican candidate going down there. I have been offered tickets already but I can’t go. One of the people down there was thinking of setting up a welcoming booth for all the supporters.

    One week from tonight. Daughn you better do your homework on the Jersey Shore. Many Trump supporters there now.

  9. New amendment, Schiffty droning on, 11:45 on Capitol Hill. I wonder how long they’re planning to go tonight.

    Oh, now Philbin is rebutting. The House never took a vote, so it never authorized any of its committees to issue subpoenas. “Legal infirmity in those subpoenas.” Epic fail.

  10. Earlier today I saw on GAB that the impeachment hearing started 17 minutes late. I thought that was cool. Tonight I found it very odd because Chad Pergram (Fox) mentioned that it started 18 minutes late on THREE separate occasions. What is with that?.
