Dear KAG: 20200211 Open Thread

Welcome to the 15 minute, standing meeting Tuesday Daily thread. With all the winning going on, mood music calls for something less war-like.

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.


From the First Book of Kings, Chapter 8:

Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD
in the presence of the whole community of Israel,
and stretching forth his hands toward heaven,
he said, “LORD, God of Israel,
there is no God like you in heaven above or on earth below;
you keep your covenant of mercy with your servants
who are faithful to you with their whole heart.

“Can it indeed be that God dwells on earth?
If the heavens and the highest heavens cannot contain you,
how much less this temple which I have built!
Look kindly on the prayer and petition of your servant, O LORD, my God,
and listen to the cry of supplication which I, your servant,
utter before you this day.
May your eyes watch night and day over this temple,
the place where you have decreed you shall be honored;
may you heed the prayer which I, your servant, offer in this place.
Listen to the petitions of your servant and of your people Israel
which they offer in this place.
Listen from your heavenly dwelling and grant pardon.”

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

      I’d like to see the prosecutors who recommended a 9 year prison sentence for #RogerStone FIRED. Their thuggish mentality will persist long after the Stone case. Why have these goons with badges continuing to draw taxpayer salaries?

      1. Wolfie, don’t know how I got into this comment box after your comment, but now when I try to comment as I was in my personal area at bottom, everything tells me “clickable” which I do not think is html. Translation of “clickable” for me is that I Cannot Click. I know that sound weird, but so it is and always has been. It did not ever tell me that until this evening.

  2. Absent from the media discussions about Roger Stone are the elephants in the room — the Podesta brothers. Oh well, when you’re a Dem, you can get away with anything:

    1. Would be interesting if the “missing Maddie” case reopened, or started moving again… two men who look IDENTICAL to the Podesta brothers were seen in the immediate vicinity of where Maddie disappeared…

      There are side-by-sides on the net of the “Wanted” poster and the brothers paed…


    1. Sorry if this is a repetition…just read on PM that Jesse Wiu’s nomination to the Treasury Department has been withdrawn!
      Barr replaced her as DC District Attorney with his man, Shea, and she was slated to go to Treasury. Oops!

  4. Anyone else watching the Westminster Kennel Club dog show?

    Well, a few years back, a BEAUTIFUL German Shepherd named Rumor won best in show, and as it turns out, her puppies, thus far, have been used as PTSD therapy and support dogs for veterans who need them.

    It’s like I’m cutting onions.

    Oh, I so love it, man and nature working together.

              Lordy Lordy can you imagine her in control of anything having to do with the welfare of our nation?

        1. Alison and Wheatie2, thank you both so much for explaining about the funny video. Was unable to comment at your comments so putting it here–I hope.

          Liked by 2 people

      1. It’s a funny video from the guy who goes by ‘In Pursuit Of Truth’.

        It makes fun of Jesse Smollett and shows him making stupid remarks like:
        “You do yourself such a disservice when you lie about things like this.”

        Which is exactly what he did!

        It shows Jesse lying and saying “I noticed the rope around my neck and started screaming.”

        Then there is a koala bear screaming.

        Jesse says “I will never be the man that this did NOT Happen To.”

        And we see the clip of the Confused Looking Suspicious Cat….and also other clips of people looking skeptical.

        Jesse says “I still want to believe, with all that has happened, that there is something called Justice.”

        Then there is a clip of Don Lemon of CNN, saying that Smollett has been charged with filing a false police report.

        It’s a short video…but that’s the gist of it.

    1. I rather have a germaphobe handling it that a China-phile like that idiot doctor who wanted OPEN trade between the USA and China.

      Dr. Inglesby is the Director of the Center for Health Security of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, dedicated to protecting people’s health from the consequences of epidemics and disasters.

      He tweeted: “Recognition of the lack of effectiveness of bans and the major consequences of travel and trade bans led all countries to agree by treaty (the International Health Regulations) to not put these kinds of bans in place during outbreaks.”


      “Travel bans will have negative ramifications. We import many key products from China on daily basis, including PPE that will be important to dealing w/ epidemic, and huge supply of other materials, medicines, etc across the economy. US-China trade could be swept up in this.”

  10. Sundance is all over this Lou Dobbs Story based on his early work!!!

    Jessie Liu is why Leaker James Wolfe got off with a SLAP, and FEINSTEIN was PROTECTED from being connected to the leaks against Trump!!!

    But Liu didn’t just protect CHINA – she also protected RUSSIA, by keeping the Butina story from getting mixed up with Mueller, and showing that Russia was trying to gin up crap for the DEMS against the Republicans!

    1. Lui was part of the Trump Transition team. Also Liu was nominated by Trump to serve as the head federal prosecutor in D.C. and was confirmed in September 2017.

      Looks like she was very much a SNAKE.

          1. Sundance spotted how Wolfe got off lightly, and was massively P.O.ed that there was no more justice. I theorized that “White Hats” in DOJ and FBI got Wolfe to give up a bunch of intelligence, and that he was a cooperating witness of some kind, but there was NO EVIDENCE to support that.

            Pretty sure I was WRONG about that now.

            So Barr gets in and looks around right after that time. I’m thinking that he saw Liu handling the “outside of Mueller” cover-ups – that Wolfe got off easy and DOJ got nothing. He’s gotta figure she’s SWAMP. But she’s just like Mueller, Weissmann, and all the rest. Legalistic SNAKES that do everything legal – LETTER OF THE LAW – but massively turn on the SPIRIT OF THE LAW – seeking political results and larger injustices that can result from extremely selective prosecution.

            Sundance called it. SNAKE!
