Dear KAG: 20200205 Open Thread

Welcome back to the previously scheduled Wednesday Open Thread!

And just because of all the recent BOOMs.

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.

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 tomorrow’s readings from the First Book of Chronicles:

And the people rejoiced, when they promised their offerings willingly: because they offered them to the Lord with all their heart: and David the king rejoiced also with a great joy. [10] And he blessed the Lord before all the multitude, and he said: Blessed art thou, O Lord the God of Israel, our father from eternity to eternity.

[11] Thine, O Lord, is magnificence, and power, and glory, and victory: and to thee is praise: for all that is in heaven, and in earth, is thine: thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art above all princes. [12] Thine are riches, and thine is glory, thou hast dominion over all, in thy hand is power and might: in thy hand greatness, and the empire of all things. [13] Now therefore our God we give thanks to thee, and we praise thy glorious name. [14] Who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able to promise thee all these things? all things are thine: and we have given thee what we received of thy hand. [15] For we are sojourners before thee, and strangers, as were all our fathers. Our days upon earth are as a shadow, and there is no stay.

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

Back to our regularly scheduled swamp watching.

    The swamp’s impeachment hoax has ended with President Trump being #AquittedForever. Remember: “When you attack him, he will punch back ten times harder.”

    followed by embedded vid clip of Melania behind the podium, in front of an American flag, speaking about her husband, presidential candidate (I believe), with theme from “Rocky” playing in background

    “As you may know by now when you attack him, he will punch back 10 times harder. No matter who you are, a man or a woman, he treats everyone equal. He’s a fighter.”

      That sounds like he was really singing that too and not another voice dubbed in.

        And, yeah, he could actually sing. There were others, like Tommy Rall (PHENOMENAL dancer, but couldn’t sing to save his soul), where it was great sport to spot the different voices used for dubbing him.

    Multiple conversations w/Dem mbrs/aides reveal one thing: Democrats are depressed after today’s impeachment verdict votes in the Senate. “We all knew how this was going,” said one sr source. “Everyone’s depressed. Especially because of Iowa.”

    1. Well, they just admitted it… they knew how the shampeachment would turn out, because it was a sham…

      Same with IOWA… their party pulled ANOTHER fast one, and they’re depressed. So they blame Trump.

      Makes no sense, but they continue over and over…………………………… like Lucy enticing Charlie to kick the football…

      The stupid berns.

    It’s a windy day there and you can hear the buffeting wind in the video.

    ‘s speech last night.

    In that speech were stories of American Heroes & American Dreams.

    Their stories are more powerful than her hate.

    We shredded her Impeachment.

    Now let’s all tear up the Democrat’s chances in 2020

    For Zoe…the video is of clips from the SOTU where POTUS is speaking of accomplishments, recognizing guests. After each clip their is a subtitle of the preceding scene as it shows NANZI ripping the speech in half. VERY good video compilation

        1. Those prop-swinger turbines are an older design that GE invested heavily in.

          So this design was pushed by GE and approved by politicians in their pocket.

          These designs are maintenance queens that burn out their bearings quickly and require a maintenance team working constantly to keep them operational.

          The Helix designs are better, IMO…and there are several.
          These are referred as ‘Vertical’ wind turbines.

          One big advantage of the vertical helix designs…is that they don’t kill our birds.

          Birds see them as a ‘solid’ and don’t fly into them.

          Another advantage is…they are omnidirectional and can take wind from any direction.

          The helix designs can be mounted on rooftops, which is a good use of that space:

          I am not opposed to Wind Power, to augment our other sources of energy.

          We just need to be smarter about it…and make decisions based on Merit, rather than dirty politics.

      2. Such a SCAM!!!

        I saw how they foisted the climate hoax onto the scientific community, too. Very interesting information warfare process. They took over the “intermediate literature” – the societal internal publications – which can be terribly, terribly slanted, although they built up to it very slowly. This was also how they declared AGW as “settled science” when it was not.

        Socialism ruins EVERYTHING it touches.

        1. And I was taught that science is never “settled”.

          Science is the study of ‘Topic X’ and is always just the current level of discovery.
          And as such, is always subject to revision.

    NEW ARTICLE: On the Origins of the 2019-nCoV Virus, Wuhan, China
    James Lyons-Weiler, PhD – 1/30/2020

    “There is, however, clear evidence that the novel sequence, which I will refer to henceforth as INS1378, is from a laboratory-induced recombination event. Specifically,

    (1) The sequence similarity to other coronavirus sequences is lower to its most similar sequences in any coronavirus than the rest of the genome (IPAK finding)

    (2) The high sequence similarity of INS1378 to a SARS spike protein (2; IPAK Confirmed).

    (3) We also found significant sequence similarity of INS1378 to a pShuttle-SN vector that was in use in the 1980’s in China to create a more immunogenic coronavirus (IPAK finding, details below, Option 4).

    Here, I review four Option on the origins of the 2019-nCoV Coronavirus isolated from human patients from Wuhan, China….

    Both China and the US hinted at the other side’s potential liability in playing a role in bringing about a novel coronavirus in the lab specifically for the purpose of being used as a bioweapon….
    .
    .
    .
    The disease progression in of 2019-nCoV is consistent with those seen in animals and humans vaccinated against SARS and then challenged with re-infection. Thus, the hypothesis that 2019-nCoV is an experimental vaccine type must be seriously considered.

    Evidence for: Sequence homology between INS1378 to pShuttle Coronavirus vaccine; presence of a SARS-like Spike protein in bat coronavirus, otherwise most similar to bat coronaviruses; low bootstrap value.

    Evidence against: Low sequence homology (but highly signifiant). NB these viruses are RNA viruses and they can evolve quickly, even under laboratory conditions.

    Status: Most likely…..

    From my Tech Friend in China.
    My question regarded the reporting accuracy in the Corona Virus statistics.
    “Nah, people are too wired in. Is the death toll higher? Probably. But to actively hide one death you need to mute/vet at least 5 social media accounts. The dog that didn’t bark and all that. Missing data makes ripples. If they data blackout whole regions- that’s when you worry.”

    There are 1,681 caucus sites in Iowa. Three college kids with a rudimentary excel spreadsheet could tabulate the vote while eating a pizza. The fact that the Democrats can’t pull this off with the eyes of the nation watching reeks of corrruption. #BernieIsGettingScrewed (again)
