Dear KAG: 20200122 Open Thread

Hopefully, everyone is keeping warm in this “climate change” PSYCH of regular winter weather.

In the interest of conserving server space, Wednesdays will see some recycled header images. I mean, it is hump day after all.

It is also the anniversary of one of the most disastrous Supreme Court decisions ever handed down. 47 years ago the unborn children of America were deprived of their right to life by bench fiat. Since that time, over 60 million Americans have been murdered in the name of “choice.” On Friday, Americans from all over will descend on Washington to protest the decision that still stands despite decades of challenges.

In honor of VSGPDJT being at Davos in Switzerland, here’s a little mood music from the American perpective.

Welcome back to the previously scheduled Wednesday Open Thread!

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. There are, however, limits to civility, and those limits are strictly observed here. We are all on the same team. No personal threats, baiting, name calling and other behavior you would not want someone else to do to you is allowed.

Manners, i.e., “please” and “thank you” for requests of rescuing comments from “the bin” are greatly appreciated.

Yes, it can be rough to temper speech. However, those who would like to slog it out from the comfort of the seat behind your keyboard, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. Please, take it there where this is allowed to happen:

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 2019. Please, review these rules from time to time, maybe while waiting for the defrosters to get rolling while warming up the car in this global warming climate change deep freeze that’s happening.

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. FG&C asks that you wash your hands, wipe down all non in-home surfaces, and take some vitamin C, vitamin D, zinc, and get plenty of rest.

And please, pretty please with sugar on top, no celebratory gunfire…at least not indoors. Concealed carry is encouraged though.

Teasing and trolling the lefties and their bastions, on the other hand is a moral imperative. I will say this one aged well.


From today’s first reading from the First Book of Samuel, Chapter 17 (the whole reading is long):

With his shield bearer marching before him,
the Philistine also advanced closer and closer to David.
When he had sized David up,
and seen that he was youthful, and ruddy, and handsome in appearance,
the Philistine held David in contempt.
The Philistine said to David,
“Am I a dog that you come against me with a staff?”
Then the Philistine cursed David by his gods
and said to him, “Come here to me,
and I will leave your flesh for the birds of the air
and the beasts of the field.”
David answered him:
“You come against me with sword and spear and scimitar,
but I come against you in the name of the LORD of hosts,
the God of the armies of Israel that you have insulted.
Today the LORD shall deliver you into my hand;
I will strike you down and cut off your head.
This very day I will leave your corpse
and the corpses of the Philistine army for the birds of the air
and the beasts of the field;
thus the whole land shall learn that Israel has a God.
All this multitude, too,
shall learn that it is not by sword or spear that the LORD saves.
For the battle is the LORD’s and he shall deliver you into our hands.”

The Philistine then moved to meet David at close quarters,
while David ran quickly toward the battle line
in the direction of the Philistine.
David put his hand into the bag and took out a stone,
hurled it with the sling,
and struck the Philistine on the forehead.
The stone embedded itself in his brow,
and he fell prostrate on the ground.
Thus David overcame the Philistine with sling and stone;
he struck the Philistine mortally, and did it without a sword.
Then David ran and stood over him;
with the Philistine’s own sword which he drew from its sheath
he dispatched him and cut off his head.

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

Back to our regularly scheduled news from Davos and beyond.

  1. Davos:
    Not only a class act by POTUS, but if you listen and watch carefully, I believe POTUS offered Gov. Abbot a ride home on Air Force 1. Governor had to decline, “saying has to stay a few more days on business.” 🙂

  3. Had to post this : Isn’t this wonderful news? This is so positive and give me much hope. I used to attend the March for Life while in High School (went to a Catholic High School, and was the Pro-Life Club president and helped organize the trip to Washington, DC- moments I won’t forget) Amen to God for guiding us as a nation that loves life!

    1. THere’s busloads of people on their way.

      When my mom was teaching in one of the all girls schools, the teachers would brace themselves for the return, actually, because the kids would have slept in another school’s gym, they were exhausted, they weren’t eating right, they got the crud, one year there was a snowstorm and they got stranded. So, of course, the kids built an altar out of snow and some priests concelebrated Mass.

      I hear it’s a great adventure, though.

      1. But it being put out again is good, because there are a lot of people that are not as tuned in as we are. So the more exposure in the mainstream, the better.

    1. That’s some excellent news.

      You would’ve thought that they saw the light during HusseinO’s reign.
      But hey…it’s great that they finally see what the Demonicrat party has become.

      Btw, DePat…wonderful job on the two daily open threads, back-to-back.

      I’ve been under the weather plus threw my back out, so I haven’t been around much lately.
      Sorry I didn’t mention it sooner.

          Having a coughing jag hit me right as I was lifting something, is what did it.

          Having to lie flat on my back is the pits.
          But I know from experience that that is the only way get it healed up.

  6. Cates has a short thread reinforcing what we heard from POTUS during his Davos news’ conference – regarding happenings here. Note again the focus on the malignant media, and “When I finish”…

      1. Yes! We’re thinking the same, Wheatie. Just when I think it’s not going to happen – too much Rush and his pushing Dem psyops today – I yell at the radio – this isn’t a game, Rush, this is real. This isn’t politics, this is criminal.

        Anyway, POTUS keeps circling back to those words… 🙂

      1. When you castle in chess it is more of a defensive move to protect the king. Some Q interpretations seem to come out of left field. Sort of like why did the chicken cross the road. Because he really did want to get to the other side. Nothing more, nothing less.

        1. “Some Q interpretations seem to come out of left field.”

          Yes, some Q ‘decodes’ are a bit of a stretch.

          But in this particular case, Q saying “Castle clean” could easily be a reference to a chess move as much as a reference to de-bugging the White House.

          If it was meant as just a reference to de-bugging…then why did Q not say “Castle is clean”.

          Q has referred to “the castle” before, when talking about the WH.
          He could have said “The castle clean” to make it clear that he was referring to the WH, but he didn’t.

          The picture that Q used, with Pres Trump behind the two Marine guards, was used for a reason.

          So…I dunno.
          Seems like the chess move is a pretty good guess to me.


      2. My interpretation – “The White House is now free of leakers and spies.” – and – “The Admin is all on the same page and in accord with Trump policies and MAGA agenda – at last!”


    1. “When you castle, if your king is on a dark square he ends up on a light one.”

      Ummmmmm no. Wrong.

      When you castle, the king will always go to the same color square that he started the game on. White will always move it’s king two squares to a dark square, and Black will move it’s king two squares to a light square.

      “AG Barr created a new Commission today and swore in 17 new new commissioners.”

  7. I’m certain that President Trump is going to go down in our history as the most beloved President since George Washington.

    I’m so glad to be alive in this time – after decades of feeling like we were the exception rather than the rule trying to live decent American lives… POTUS is taking back our culture for us. The Dems are really going to be in meltdown Friday.

    1. President Trump has been actually accomplishing the things that RINOs have been promising to do for decades.

      He makes them look bad.

      This is probably why they hate him as much as the Demonicrats do.
      And this is why we love him so much.

      Things like attending the March For Life also makes them look bad.
      It brings up the question…why haven’t they been doing this?
