20200228: Dear KAG Open Thread.

Welcome to Friday’s OPEN THREAD at the QTree! It’s the weekend and time to crack open a beer and put some steaks on the grill! Thank you for the Thursday hand-off TrumpIsMine. Thank you to Wolfie for keeping us all organized, up and running. What would we do without FLEP’s News Roundup to keep up? Thank you, Flep. Hat tip and a hearty thank you to Wheatie, Dep, BakoCarl, Michael, all contributors and the lurkers!

We don’t believe in political correctness at QTree. Free Speech is practiced here. ENJOY IT. Use it or lose it. This board will remain a REFUGE for those who need civility, either some or all of the time. Important Guidelines are outlined here in the January 1st open thread, with an addendum on 20191110. In other words, please keep it SOMEWHAT civil. We have a new board – actually a new SITE – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.

What a week we’ve had. We’ve gone from India, with images of hundreds of thousands of Indian citizens gleefully welcoming our President, FLOTUS, and delegation in grand fashion……. and in a small overlooked news item, Sec Wilbur Ross traveled on to Pakistan. Hmmmmm! The President came home with a 3 billion dollar military sale but did not buckle on a larger trade deal. Good. The USA is in a winning position and he won’t sign unless it’s good for American citizens. We want “Reciprocity”.

When the President returned home, he was greeted by news of massive selloffs in the stock market and a media intent on causing a panic over Coronavirus. News out of Italy/Iran and South Korea sparked concerns over the virus spreading. In South Korea, we learned over 800K people signed a petition calling for the impeachment of President Moon, because he did not act fast enough to close the borders to Chinese travelers, …..which makes Trump’s decision to close travel to those from China, a month ago, quite wise. THUS, Italy’s politicians and other country’s leaders reacted severely to any threat of the virus….. which made the media salivate. The President addressed the nation on Wednesday night.

The reaction in the media reminds me of an anecdote I learned long ago, told to me by a seasoned fund manager. He said, “I could hire anyone to work for me…… When everything is going well, it wouldn’t matter if I hired people straight out of the phone book, but the reason I hire the best in the business, seek them out and pay them more, is because there will be a problem/disaster/catastrophe in the next ten years. During that moment of crisis, decisions made by savvy and calm employees will be all that stands between me and the sharks.”

It’s why we hired Donald Trump as President, for a moment such as…. Coronavirus.

In other news, well out of the headlines, the President’s Judicial Armada plugs along, the Border Wall continues adding mileage, and the Trump Admin won big in the Appeals Court for a ruling on restricting block grants to Sanctuary Cities. Promises made, promises kept, the list of accomplishments continues.

The Dems are annihilating each other in their debates and on the campaign trail. We’ve had fun watching the implosion on several Dem Debate Threads and the forecast for next week is “100% chance of continued amusement”.

Tonight, the President travels to South Carolina, for a rally before South Carolina Primary. I’ve already started marinating the ribs for the grill. We can sip tea, or share a few Mint Juleps, comfortable with our Stable Genius, while the Dems muddy themselves in the gutter. Full Debate Thread will go up after midnight. Surely, there are already people in line. Ya’ll can come visit me at the B&B while we’re in South Carolina.

No, this is not my house, but a “cousin” B&B in Charleston.

Make sure you rest up over the weekend because we have another rally in North Carolina on Monday night, ahead of the Super Tuesday primary. It is election season.

“Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the American People.” Candidate Donald J Trump

Remember Wheatie’s Rules:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

If you’re up past midnight, take a walk outside and look at the Moon and Venus “kiss” each other. Kind of cool.

Say a little prayer for the President and his family/team. It won’t hurt you, and he needs all the help he can get.

    @RodRosenstein
    for his dual role of being both in charge of running the RussiaGate investigation AND testifying as a witness in any cases arising from that investigation.

    Harris missed what Barr said.

    How can Rosenstein do BOTH, run the RussiaGate investigation & the Mueller SC if later on he’s likely TESTFYING in cases involving the co-workers he was overseer?

    And what does Barr tell Harris?

    He tells her Rosenstein was CLEARED by the Ethics Office to both oversee and testify in RussiaGate related cases WHEN HE TOOK THE JOB.

    Well when was that?

    Late April of 2017.
    Rosenstein was confirmed to the job as the new DAG on April 25.

    So, yes, Barr says, Rosenstein can play both roles. He can oversee these RussiaGate/Mueller SC people and testify later as a witness in any criminal cases that arise later involving THE PEOPLE HE WAS WORKING WITH.

    Harris can’t accept this answer.

    The second thing people need to remember: Rosenstein is signing off on a finished product that is being given to him after a briefing by lawyers.

    He is not affiant on any of these surveillance warrants.

    The affiant is the person committing perjury if the warrant is false

      1. phoenixrising37,

        Sorry I confused you.

        That was an example of the idiotic hype the Left is pushing WITHOUT FACTS!

        If you DO NOT TEST…..
        You DO NOT KNOW what is happening in this country…

        THEN YOU, as the CDC, have zero right to push that crap.

        Either you think there is a problem AND YOU DO MASSIVE SCREENING in San Francisco and NYC that had direct flights from Wuhan or you SHUT THE HELL UP!

        Remember CDC sent out defective tests
        CDC as early as Tuesday this week was saying
        1. They were WORKING ON REFORMULATION of the defective reagent
        2. Tired of Delays, U.S. Labs finally ask FDA if they could develop their own tests.
        3. CDC said they would not test any cases that did not have a direct link to China
        4. Meaning CDC refused to test the most recent case until she was so ill she required transfer to Univ Calif Davis.
        5. CDC then waited from Sunday until Wednesday to give results. [Reading between the lines, UC-Davis flexed muscle and FINALLY got a response from the negligent CDC]

        Now contrast the USA to South Korea.
        On February 7th, S.K. IDs one case.

        South Korea is testing something like 28,000 people
        they have found 2,337 cases
        they have 13 dead.

        South Korea has now come up with a quick portable test.

        http://www.arirang.com/index.asp

        My anger at CDCs Fuster Cluck was what I was trying to convey. So again sorry I was not more clear.

        Also President Trump has to both prepare AND prevent panic so he walks a fine line. If many of us do make sure we are prepared for the worse it will go a lot more smoothly. Taking reasonable precautions as FG&C has suggest cost next to nothing and can save you from illness. Remember there are two other varieties of flu going around and one is nasty.

        You can go here for the weekly statistics including deaths from flu and pneumonia
        https://www.cdc.gov/flu/weekly/#S7

        For example:

        Overall, hospitalization rates remain similar to this time during recent seasons, but rates among school aged children and young adults are higher at this time than in recent seasons and rates among children 0-4 years old are now the highest CDC has on record at this point in the season, surpassing rates reported during the second wave of the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.

        So if you have little ones you need to take extra care. Forget the Wuhan virus, it has been a bad flu season. In the top 3 for the last decade.

    “Good morning, kids. The weekend is here, and thank the Lord for that. While the coronavirus and its spreading is not to be taken lightly, the panic over a possible pandemic has been 100% manufactured and pimped by a media that both lives off of sensational scare headlines and is desperate to destroy President Trump. And when I say destroy President Trump, I mean destroy the American people for daring to defy them with their mostly unwavering support for him and concomitant rejection of them. Both the Dow Jones and S&P suffered their greatest single-day loss in history, the former down nearly 1,200 points at the close, which comes on the heels of a two-day dump of about 2,000 points. Yes, I am aware that investors do no like uncertainty, and when way too much of our and the world’s products are produced in China, something like this is of course going to have a negative effect.

    But yesterday, when the markets seemed to be leveling off and cooler heads prevailing, mostly as a result of the President’s pitch-perfect press conference where he deftly dodged the gotcha brigades, Gavin Newsome, the man presiding over a state that has devolved into virtual third world status, announced that they were monitoring 8,400 coronavirus cases in California, a statement that, given the facts as I understand them I find very hard to believe. But Wall Street listened and the markets swooned. Again, we have every reason to be concerned about a potential spreading of the virus within the US, but given the state of our healthcare delivery system as opposed to the rest of the world, and the actual lethality of the virus compared to other things such as SARS, Mers and ebola, the fear is just unwarranted.

    But the Democrat-Media Complex never lets a crisis go to waste. For them, the crisis is utter failure in their attempts to oust President Trump, and the even more disastrous failure of having his policies help every American better themselves, especially traditional Democrat constituencies which have been mired in misery for decades. Being demonstrably shown to be frauds, failures and swindlers, they could not allow that to stand. So, if causing a panic to spread 1,000 times faster than the actual virus wipes out close to $1 Trillion of average Americans’ investments and retirement accounts, with the added benefit of blaming it on the President’s tax and tariff policy along with general OrangeManBad and stupid, then so be it. What they are really doing, and they know they’re doing it, is inflicting pain and suffering on the American people as punishment for rejecting them in 2016 and most likely 2020. That, to me, goes beyond the merely criminal – it’s pure evil.” (con’t)

    1. “That said, as bad as things are, I think this too will ultimately fail. There is just no way PDT is going to allow the Democrat-Media Complex to define this as Trump’s Katrina, (which was quite obviously the perfect storm of Democrat incompetence and graft, but sadly Dubya felt defending himself by pointing that out was beneath him). The virus is going to peter out and the market is going to recover. The added political bonus is it gives the President and the GOP, if they’re smart enough to play along, ammunition to use the coronavirus as evidence for border security, strict immigration enforcement, and the disengagement from Globalist economic policies that moved so much of our manufacturing overseas and made us reliant on and vulnerable to a geopolitical enemy that we once foolishly believed we could make an ally by selling ourselves out to them (thank you Nixon, Bush and Clinton). By the way, that’s not a hypocritical politicization on my part; that’s a righteous and proper response to actual critical problems with real-world, serious consequences that we have ignored for far too long. No doubt, the President and team realize this and will act accordingly the next time Malig-Nancy Pelosi and Cuck Schemer open their cake-holes.

      Lastly, on a very positive note, it looks as if Israeli researchers might be well on their way to a vaccine, and not two years down the road either. Yes, I can see the likes of Bro-Fo Omar and Bernie Sanders already, spewing “the evil Yahoodies have a cure because they created the virus in the first place, and now they want us to pay for it!” Well, they can always boycott the vaccine since they don’t want to chance getting Joo-Cooties. By the way, the same Israeli research center that might have a vaccine is the same one that is going full steam ahead on the total cancer cure.”

        The solutions won’t be in any of Bernie Sanders’ favorite communist regimes. They won’t from the Scandinavian companies. They’ll come from us. They’ll come from capitalism. What do they support? Massive taxes. What is their containment plan? They have no containment plan. What is their vaccination development plan? They have no vaccination development plan. Meanwhile, they attack the president of the United States. The answers won’t come from the liberals and the Democrats, which is why they attack.

    The fire was set by a group of Antifa types who were “protesting” a concert by a singer from the Congo. The group said that the singer was “too connected” to the Congolese government.
    There is footage on twatterworld showing the “protesters” running off the Paris firemen who were trying to get into the gare to put out the fire. People were trapped on the parking deck and inside.

      and

      B) any protestors who obstruct firefighters from saving lives should be charged with attempted murder of everyone trapped who survives

      and

      C) any protestors who obstruct firefighters should be charged with aggravated 1st degree murder of everyone trapped who dies

      This is basic, straightforward stuff that anyone with a knowledge of how the world worked up until about a decade ago could figure out in under a second.

      The most subversive thing the enemy has done is to turn reality upside down — in everything, but particularly with regard to keeping basic order — and they need to be convicted and put to death for it.

  9. Hoping FISA is abolished. Tired of Americans being spied. Simply don’t trust DOJ and FIB! Unfortunately, FISA will survive with “reforms’>

    FTA

    Secret FISA court’s future in jeopardy, lawmakers say
    GOP Rep. Scott Perry: Not even ’50-50 chance’ surveillance court survives without reform

    Amid scandal and abuse, reforming the FISA surveillance system will not be easy. But without systemic reform, the secret court at the heart of the government’s surveillance authority may not even survive.

    “I don’t even give [the secret FISA Court] a 50-50 chance” of survival in its present form, Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) told Just The News.

    Many Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill now say they are in agreement that something transformative must be done to fix shortcomings in the programs that allow government spying on U.S. citizens. But agreement on details is proving elusive.

    1. As much as I want to see this problem permanently and completely fixed . . .

      . . . I don’t think right now is just the right time to force it.

      * Next Congress will be in a better position to do the job right
      * Will have an electoral mandate
      * All the smoke will be cleared on the FISA so we know what needs to be fixed and/or destroyed
      * Dems really won’t get much say in the process, and they don’t deserve to have any

  10. There is an article OT on the Raftcliffe nomination:
    https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/02/28/president-trump-nominates-john-ratcliffe-for-director-of-national-intelligence-ramifications/

    As so often seems to happen, SD talks all AROUND the central question, without ever acknowledging or addressing it.

    It’s incredible that someone can be so adept at doing this.

    He mentions that SSCI chairmen Richard Burr (Traitor, R) and Mark Warner (Traitor, D) ‘boldly’ announced last time around that they would not support Ratcliffe, which they could not have done without Turtle McConnell’s blessing.

    Now SD says it’s likely a deal has been struck by DJT with the Turtle, i.e., Turtle wants the FISA reauthorization (along with Lady Graham and AG Noarrestever), so Turtle is now willing to allow the nomination of Ratcliffe to be approved by the Senate in exchange for DJT signing the FISA reauthorization.

    What SD never once mentions is this:

    WHY would McConnell WANT the FISA reauthorization so badly?

    Isn’t that a relevant question, if not the most obvious one?

    According to SD, the DNI is the nuclear nerve center of the corrupt IC, and the DNI has the power to reach into any compartment (C_A, FIB, NSA, etc.) and declassify whatever is necessary to expose — for example — the most corrupt committee in the federal government (SSCI), headed by Burr and Warner.

    Which acting DNI Ric Grennell can ALSO do, RIGHT NOW.

    So what’s in it for the Turtle?

    Grennell can expose Warner & Burr right now, and Ratcliffe will be able to expose them as soon as he is confirmed, so what good is reauthorizing FISA to the Turtle, if it brings down the SSCI — and why would Burr ever go along with bringing himself down?

    And if Grennell can do it right now, then what actual leverage does the Turtle have to make a deal with DJT to get FISA reauthorized ANYWAY?

    If you’ve been paying attention to the news lately, you may be feeling on edge. You may feel as though time is running out for you to get your preparedness supplies and emergency food in order. You may be new to prepping, and feeling like there’s too much to accomplish. It seems like everything, everywhere, is sold out.

    This feeling of urgency can make you feel hopeless and panicked, and that’s not productive. If you’re in a hurry, there’s no time for a lack of productivity. It’s time to focus and create your food supply immediately. If an event like a quarantine occurs during which you are unable to leave your home, you’ll want to make certain that you can keep food on the table without waiting for a handout to be doled out at the whim of some government agency. (If you are preparing for a potential coronavirus quarantine or pandemic, check out this best-selling book on the topic.)

    PART 3 – PREVENTIVE STRATEGIES

    Yesterday, in Part 2 we covered disaster’s effects such as depression, grief, and PTSD. Today in Part 3, we will focus on numerous preventive strategies. It is imperative to work proactively at protecting the psychological health of your entire group. This will require advance study and forethought for some unless you are blessed to have an individual in your group with medical and/or counseling experience to call upon. Nevertheless, it is crucial to think, read, and plan for psychological stress management as we do for other aspects of survival. Also keep in mind that these are skills and preparations that you definitely will use as an individual during your life even if there is no disaster or TEOTWAWKI. We will all face stress and loss which we will endure more successfully with some of the skills covered below and which will assist us in helping others in our homes and communities.

    While I am a licensed M.D., retired disabled, I am not a psychiatrist and remind our readers that I am neither diagnosing nor prescribing. Please obtain prompt medical care from licensed practitioners as long as they are available.
