Dear KAG!: 20200326 Open Thread

 This Night before Daughn Thursday 20200326 Open Thread is Open – VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA / KAG! / KMAG world (KMAG being a bit of both MAGA and KAG! You can say what you want, comment on what other people said, and so on.

Free Speech is practiced here. ENJOY IT. Use it or lose it.

However, we have a new policy. Starting 20191110. 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. NOT HERE. This board will remain a REFUGE for those who need civility, either some or all of the time.

They tried to FORCE fake Orwellian civility on us. In response, we CHOOSE true civility to defend our precious FREEDOM from THEM. Our rules began with the civility of the Old Treehouse, later to become the Wolverinian Empire, and one might say that we have RESTORED THE OLD REPUBLIC – the early high-interaction model of the Treehouse – except of course that Q discussion is not only allowed but encouraged, and speech is considerably freer in other ways. Please feel free to argue and disagree with the board owner, as nicely as possible.

Please also consider the Important Guidelines, outlined here in the January 1st open thread. Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven.

SPEAK THE FIVE WORDS BOLDLY TO OUR PRESIDENT! “I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!“


I ventured out Wednesday morning to the grocery store after being hunkered down for the last 2 weeks. Seniors only from 7:00 am to 8:00 am. Dear wife made the last sojourn looking for a few things we needed without much success about a week and a half ago. She’s not much of a early riser and I am so, I got there at 6:55 and a bunch of old guys and gals were forming by the doors waiting for them to open. Got in and no antiseptic wipes to wipe down the cart but I figured as much and had a plastic baggie with Clorox wipes in my pocket so after wiping the thing down I hurried in there.

What I thought would be a slow moving crowd was SO wrong (for the most part) as the old codgers were hurrying about trying to get the same things I was after. Bread,fruit,produce and meat, especially chicken. I was making good time and the shelves were not too bad but, no toilet paper, hand wipes or antiseptic wipes of any kind. Expected.

Got out of there at 7:55 without incident. Unloaded it all and jumped in the shower, scrubbed down and put on clean duds.

Ah, provisioned for a couple weeks now and we’re hunkering back down with all we need!

Well maybe this picture isn’t Accurate!.

Today it is supposed to be sunny and near 70 degrees and it’s time to cut the grass!



it’s Spring and obviously life will go on so remember….

  1. Apparently SD has been banned/suspended… from Tweeter:

    And then Eeyore was possessed by a most curious and unusual spirit of optimism 👀

    “Do not allow yourselves to be overcome with dark imaginings.” [thus sayeth the Keeper and Imaginer of said ‘dark imaginings’].

    “Keep a smile in your heart and a kindness toward your neighbor. We will forever support you… Remember, “rally to the standard”.”

    It hardly sounds like Eeyore at all! 😁

    1. I thought that it was strange. Not in agreement with his forced thought police shut down but quite the we have to fight and be all wolverines again. Maybe he will cut the eeyore stuff and become a Wolf.

        1. “After all we were guilty of crossing him so we got banned for being wrong, but he got banned because he was right.”

          _______________

          He knew we were right, and that’s why he banned us — because he had no argument, and he couldn’t let our points continue unchallenged, so his solution was to silence those with whom he disagreed but whose arguments he could not defeat 😁

    2. I find irony to be as delicious as filet mignon. THIS is irony with a side of sweet potato fries, (insert your favorite vegetable), and creme brulee (or dessert of your choice).

      I am playing the world’s smallest violin to accompany my meal, too.

      Does it seem like I have no sympathy?

      1. A dose of his own medicine could be a positive learning experience, but it would also be good to get him back on the field of play.

        Still have to give him credit for his analysis (primarily his economic these days) and support he gives the President (mostly economic policy support), and he has a good sized audience, so it helps.

        Just because he screwed up and did wrong by us doesn’t mean we should shoot ourselves in the foot.

        Maybe just stubbing our toe every now and then as a reminder would be sufficient 😁

        1. I wasn’t too impressed with his economic analysis either.

          He tried to claim once that we were paying twice for social security&medicare and all those off budget things–he was alleging that social security tax revenue was hidden and the income tax (and other taxes) was paying for the social security program as well as discretionary spending, and that the government was therefore siphoning off the extra 2 trillion.

          All I had to do was point him to an independet site with a top level view of federal income and spending.

          Sloppy.

    3. He’s right about the “hoax” part in that the virus has been used as a political weapon against America’s wellbeing.

      Otherwise, the virus could/should have been treated as a serious public health concern and dealt with the usual precautions when we have outbreaks of communicable diseases. Blanket extreme measures was overkill, and if we’d had monitored borders and intense screening of incoming folks we could have lessened our ground zero sites.

    1. If Hussein pardoned someone, is that not necessarily a matter of public record?

      If it wasn’t, then it would be a license to simply pardon your own crimes and the crimes of your underlings on an ongoing basis, and no one would ever know, which would be a process so obviously corrupt that it would be lawless on its face.

      Secondly, can Hussein even be impeached now, when he is no longer in office?

        1. “I also don’t buy this idea that him being impeached nullifies everything he did in office, either, but a lot of people on “our” side seem to think this.”

          ________________

          I suppose it depends on whether he was impeached for crimes during office as opposed to being impeached for not even being qualified to take office in the first place.

          If he was a lawful president (i.e., qualified to run, didn’t cheat or commit fraud or other crimes to win), but committed crimes during his time in office (as everyone knows he did), then I don’t see how it would nullify everything he did in office.

          But if it is proven that he was illegitimate from the outset, that he was never lawfully qualified or did not win office lawfully, then his presidency should be nullified ab initio, from the beginning, as if it never happened.

          And if, lawfully speaking, it never happened, then anything that flows from it was illegitimate, and likewise must be nullified.

          Sort of like fruit of the poisoned tree.

          There has to be a legitimate foundation, everything has to track backward, we can’t just put an asterisk next to a LAW as if it was just some stat on a baseball card, signifying a shortened baseball season.

          If Hussein was never lawfully president, then by law (not to mention logic), how could anything he signed into law be lawful either?

          Both scenarios apply to Hussein.

          He was never a legitimate president to start with, ab initio, and should therefore be expunged from the record.

          He also committed crimes WHILE being an unlawful president, more crimes than all other presidents are even speculated to have committed — combined — and then multiplied exponentially.

          There has never been anything like the criminality of Hussein in modern history, and I’m not aware of anything like it in ancient history, either.

          I can’t even think of a proper word to describe the kind of monster he is. To call him a criminal is to minimize the scale of what he did. To call him merely a traitor lumps him in with idiots, dupes and spies. Hussein eclipsed them all by orders of magnitude.

          Hussein attempted to bring down the United States of America, from inside the highest office in the land.

          I don’t know a word for that.

          What do you call someone who tries, with concentrated premeditation, to murder a nation — and by extension, the world with it?

          What do you call someone who attempted to usher in a new Dark Ages for humanity, to practically and actually enslave the entire human race?

          If even a tiny bit of what Q has revealed is true, this is what Hussein stands accused of.

          So far.

          1. OK, so let’s say he’s impeached for not having been qualified in the first place.

            How are you going to undo everything he did?

            You can’t. He spent money; he gave the military orders, people were killed on account of those orders. He signed laws and nominated federal judges and hired a bunch of SES pukes–those, at least could be negated, but really, that’s about it, and they would argue that you’re drawing a line arbitrarily.

            I think in the end they’d have to say that as long as the act itself wasn’t unconstitutional (i.e., it would have been OK other than coming from the hand of a usurper), it will have to stand. And, say, his appointment of SCOTUS justices would therefore have to stand–nothing unconstitutional in the act of nominating them, itself.

            Now Obolacare is IMHO properly regarded as unconstitutional and should be tossed out…but that would be true even if Obola could trace his American roots back to the Revolutionary War on both sides of his family.

              Maybe, if it could be credibly alleged that while he was in office, he served in good faith.

              But if his whole purpose and reason for being groomed and ushered into the presidency was to subvert and destroy from within, then what act that he accomplished in that capacity could withstand legal scrutiny?

              If his purpose was to subvert, to undermine and destroy the very nation and Constitution he swore to protect, then what law or appointment can continue on, to the end and purpose of the betrayer?

              1. I think the same argument would have to apply in this case too.

                Trying to undertake to undo everything that asshole did, en masse by judicial fiat, would be impossible. How do you fix the things he broke? Can we revive the businesses his regulations killed?

                The only thing that would pass practical muster would be safeguards to see it never happened again. Alas we don’t have damnatio memoriae in our legal system; he’d be a perfect candidate.

            2. In other words and for example, if he appointed Sotamayor with the express purpose and intent that she would undermine the Law and the Constitution, to further the 75+ year (or longer) Communist effort to rot our country from the inside out, and her record shows that she is performing 100% in that capacity, how can she be allowed to continue?

              Suppose the bank president is a crook, and he appoints members of his criminal enterprise to every position of power and authority, from the manager to vault guards. Then it is discovered that the bank president stole $20 million dollars from the bank over the course of 8 years, while his partners in crime dutifully looked the other way.

              A new president comes in to take over the bank.

              Is he going to leave the crooked employees in their positions, to manage the bank and ‘guard’ the vault?

              If the rot is not removed, won’t it just keep rotting?

              If the government’s purpose was to serve the government, then I could see allowing Sodamotor and others like her to stay, because that’s just the way institutions protect themselves.

              But the government’s purpose is to serve We the People. If it doesn’t accomplish that purpose, then it cannot justify its continued existence, in which case we scrap it, and start over.

              Give Sodamotor an atomic wedgie and throw her out on her Wise Latina.

              If she says a single word in response, charge her as one of Hussein’s accomplices and let her break the plank.

              1. In both cases there are remedies.

                You impeach bad judges, you don’t say, oh, sorry we’re going to pretend the senate never confirmed you.

                You fire crooked bank employees–you don’t pretend they were never hired.

    2. From the tweet: “when Obama is impeached for his crimes, ANYTHING he signed, including pardons will be null and VOID anyways ”
      I’ve seen differing opinions on this, andI don’t think it is necessarily the case. But I have also thought that “new crimes” were needed, and i connect that idea with Q, though I could be mistaken.

      1. I don’t think anyone can pardon future crimes, so…if Obola did pardon these people, anything they did after he signed the pardons (presumably 19 January 2017 or maybe even the following morning) is fair game for prosecution.

        And it would be absurd to try to nullify everything he did while in office. Can the government unspend the money in the budgets he signed? Can we unkill Osama bin Laden?

        No, he was president when he signed those things; all impeaching and removing him does is make him not the president from that day forward.

        1. People want his SCOTUS picks removed and bills he signed nullified, like OCare. I think some are mixing up an indictment and conviction for crimes with the idea that he defrauded the country about his birth certificate (also criminal, of course). They think the latter would nullify everything because it would prove him to have been an illegitimate president. But even if it did, I don’t think it would nullify everything because of the chaos that would ensue.

    Comrades, the Twitter Directorate of Narrative Approval has found The Conservative Treehouse in violation of state interests for challenging acceptable thought around the coronavirus pandemic. Dissent cannot be tolerated:
