Dear KAG: 20200219 Open Thread

Mornin’ y’all. This morning, well….

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

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.

In addition, it is requested that there be no swinging from the chandeliers, celebratory gunfire, messing around with the nuclear weapons, and, please, everyone wash your hands.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. Please, venture over there for any such thoughts and comments. This sort of thing is always a possibility on that site:

A few other vital notes:

Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.

Ridiculing the other side, on the other hand…well….


From the First Chapter of the Book of James:

Know this, my dear brothers and sisters:
everyone should be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger
for anger does not accomplish
the righteousness of God.
Therefore, put away all filth and evil excess
and humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you
and is able to save your souls.

Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves.
For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer,
he is like a man who looks at his own face in a mirror.
He sees himself, then goes off and promptly forgets
what he looked like.
But the one who peers into the perfect law of freedom and perseveres,
and is not a hearer who forgets but a doer who acts;
such a one shall be blessed in what he does.

If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue
but deceives his heart, his religion is vain.
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God and the Father is this:
to care for orphans and widows in their affliction
and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

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

We ready for more “As the Swamp Turns”?

      WOW, read this.

      Blagojevich was set up. By none other than Obama and his goons.

      And they were doing this in 2008.

      H/T : Rosie memos on twatter.

      Redactions Revealed: The Six Secrets You Need to Know From the Obama Subpoena Request
      Secret phone calls, conversations in Obama’s car, and Valerie Jarrett’s role.

      NBC Chicago

      Actually, please consider reading Rosie’s entire thread.

      Trump’s Blagojevich clemency was no coincidence, either.

      I bet Kerik and / or Milken involve Obama and his goons as well.


      Interesting deduction in replies in the Rosie thread…….

      1. IDK…. I wasn’t as awake back then, but I do remember that my gut instinct at the time was that the case was way over the top…..he seemed like a decent person in any interview I watched at the time. It will be interesting to follow this now.

  2. Coosmama asked me to also post this here.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is a perfect example of HOW the Senior Executive Service (SES) has literally taken control of the US government.

    The CDC is one of the major operating components of the Department of Health and Human Services. The head of the Department of Health and Human Services is appointed and confirmed by the Senate.

    The CDC Director, is appointed by the president and does not require Senate approval.

    As of 2015, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had 10,796 employees. 29 are Senior Executive Service.

    CDC organization:

    There are 29 department heads plus the appointed CDC Director in the organizational chart. So the likelihood of the department heads ALL being Senior Executive Service is close to 100%.


    Is the CDC union??
    Well Health and Human Services is.

    AFGE Local 1923, is the largest federal union in the country “…representing approximately 30,000 employees nationwide that are employed in the Social Security Administration, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (formally HCFA), Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense, and the National Mediation Board….” (So the Mediation Board is unionized too.)

    🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍 🐍

    Because the Senior Executive Service has special privileges above and beyond that of regular federal employees, some think it is the core of the ‘Deep State.’ Obama appointed over 7,000 of the 8,156 federal employees in the Senior Executive Service. Most of these appointees do not arise from inside the respective agencies through a merit system and there are many more SES appointees than any other type of political appointment. WORSE unlike other political appointees once hired they can not be fired. This means the MANAGERS of the Trump Administration are actually Obama appointees. For example McCabe, the former deputy director of the FBI is SES.

    The Senior Executive Service (SES) lead America’s workforce. As the keystone of the Civil Service Reform Act of 1978, the SES was established to “…ensure that the executive management of the Government of the United States is responsive to the needs, policies, and goals of the Nation and otherwise is of the highest quality.” These leaders possess well-honed executive skills and share a broad perspective on government and a public service commitment that is grounded in the Constitution.

    Members of the SES serve in the key positions just below the top Presidential appointees. SES members are the major link between these appointees and the rest of the Federal workforce. They operate and oversee nearly every government activity in approximately 75 Federal agencies.

    This is an article on the SES:

    This is a conspiracy site but it shows the actual documents if you want to know more about the SES:

    What is interesting is most of the usual requirements are WAIVED!

    1. Whoever did that study has an unusually curious mind? Most likely one of our brave Ivy League-trained scientists; probably has since moved on to tackle the mysteries of climate change. Now they are investigating how far the truth can be stretched before it is damaged.

    By disclosing the January 7 meeting, #XiJinping has indirectly admitted that in the midst of an epidemic he potentially exposed the US leadership and others to the #coronavirus by sending his officials to Washington to sign the #trade deal with Prez #Trump.
