Dear KAG: 20200521 Open Thread

The swamp creatures in Washington are so emeshed in their little bubble, they don’t think about the consequences of their actions. Aretha sang it best. (Lyrics here.)

As usual, this is the daily thread, the place to put all information that needs to be out there – Q drops, news flashes, WuFlu updates, satire, memes, and of course cute animal videos.

In the meantime, the short and sweet version of “THE RULES” is here borrowed from Tuesday:

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.

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.

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.

Since it is almost the weekend, the reminders are in place to not swing from the chandeliers, wash your hands and face, marinate the ribs, and be nice to the liberals whether they deserve it or not. Making your bed, OTOH, is optional.

Do we all have our grilling meat for Memorial Day? Please, describe your grilling preferences in the comments. Note that STL-style pork spare ribs (the skirt is trimmed away) in Bogarts, Pappy’s and/or Sugarfire sauce is spoken for. (And if somebody can find a BIGGER GIF of fire in the wrong place on a grill, post it, will ya?)

ACTS 1:1-11

In the first book, Theophilus,
I dealt with all that Jesus did and taught
until the day he was taken up,
after giving instructions through the Holy Spirit
to the apostles whom he had chosen.
He presented himself alive to them
by many proofs after he had suffered,
appearing to them during forty days
and speaking about the kingdom of God.
While meeting with them,
he enjoined them not to depart from Jerusalem,
but to wait for “the promise of the Father
about which you have heard me speak;
for John baptized with water,
but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”

When they had gathered together they asked him,
“Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?”
He answered them, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons
that the Father has established by his own authority.
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,
and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem,
throughout Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth.”
When he had said this, as they were looking on,
he was lifted up, and a cloud took him from their sight.
While they were looking intently at the sky as he was going,
suddenly two men dressed in white garments stood beside them.
They said, “Men of Galilee,
why are you standing there looking at the sky?
This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven
will return in the same way as you have seen him going into heaven.”

Here’s to avoiding speed traps and liberals empowered by the nanny state who feel they must lecture the rest of us on proper social distancing and decorum.

    1. After reading OT on Zibgnew, Brezinski, Brennan AND OBAMA…

      Adding in the fact that Brennan and Comey were/are Communists.

      ♦️ Brennan brags about casting his vote in 1976 for Gus Hall, the American Communist Party’s presidential candidate.

      ♦️ In a 2003 interview with New York Magazine, Comey said that before voting for Carter in 1980, he’d been a Communist. He admitted, “I’d moved from Communist to whatever I am now.”

      ♦️ Hillary Clinton selling State secrets to the highest bidder.

      ♦️ President Trump before he ran for president, had a nation-level intelligence network.

      AND

      ♦️ President Trump using the word TREASON instead of the word Sedition.
      ….

      Does President Trump KNOW that Obama was a ‘groomed foreign agent’ placed in the highest office? It would certainly explain the hysteria in DC and the Media.

      It has always puzzled me as to WHY, the Deep State didn’t just hunker down and wait the Trump Presidency out. WHY THE PANIC???

      It is NOT the spying on the Trump campaign it is something much much bigger and something THEY know that President Trump CAN PROVE.

      1. Just was doing a bit more browsing.
        Barry, at age 10 was turned over to Grandpappy although Mama was still alive. Grandpappy had an FBI file that was destroyed in 1997.

        Grandpappy handed young Barry over to Frank Marshall Davis for ‘Mentoring’

        … Kincaid’s ASI had previously obtained the 600-page FBI file on Davis and posted it at http://www.usasurvival.org It shows that Davis was a key high-level operative in a Soviet-sponsored network in Hawaii.
        http://www.christiannewswire.com/news/5283313594.html

        Why did Stanley Ann remove Barry from her passport?

        Why did she ship Barry off to her parents to raise?

        Is Barry really her son? He is certainly NOT Obama Sr’s.

      2. I hope you are right that it’s something much bigger than “just” O spying on the incoming president. I don’t think O was a legitimate president, and I would love to see that revealed.

        Pres. Trump doesn’t say things lightly. He has talked about taking down the media, and he’s really hammering Joe and Mika right now. He must know some things that will take Scarborough down, or that might scare him or others into some action.

        I suspect that some of the panic is because everything might be connected. When you reveal one dirty scandal, it leads to another, which reveals another, etc. So many of the bad actors have dealings in other areas of life and business, too — foundations, corporations, networks, Hollywood, etc. I will not be surprised if all the scandals turn out to involve most of the same people (selling out the country to foreigners, treasonous acts against the presidency, human trafficking, pedophilia, drug running, financial crimes, etc.). And those who weren’t directly involved in some of them turned a blind eye to them. (See Hollywood and Harvey Weinstein.)

      1. I heard a story about a little white girl who was with her mom in an airport, and they sat by a black lady. The little girl asked her about her skin color, and then she looked at her own skin and proclaimed it to be pink. So seriously, white is not an accurate depiction of “white” skin color. And yes, kids don’t care. It’s adults continuing to point out differences to divide us.

    Swiss pharma giant Novartis believes the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine offers one of the best hopes to combat coronavirus and has donated 130 M. doses as part of the pandemic response

    So if the FDA finds it unsafe,
    does it want people to die?

        1. Hi Bako, I ended up using my own doctor and Publix supermarket pharmacist – they made an exception to Publix rule because of daughter’s disability. Also had a serological antibodies test – which was negative and came stamped that it wasn’t approved – not even EUA emergency approved by FDA – and did not rule out having the virus ! So wasted effort and 3 vials of blood.
          Hang on and I’ll look through files for the phone doctor.

          Here you go….(love the search option on Outlook)

          TELE- MED – https://corsination.com/covid-19/
          Corsi telemed, https://speakwithanmd.com – $59 consult fee.

          Prophylactic dose – 200mg 1xd for 5 days, then 1x week – refills available if you need them.

          Ginger’s Mom was the one who used Telemed – https://wqth.wordpress.com/2020/04/28/20200428-back-to-work-maga-on-kickin-covid-and-dems-to-the-curb/comment-page-1/#comment-480121

          “Update re: my seeking out some HCQ.

          Filled in the medical questionnaire at the Corsi telemed, https://speakwithanmd.com, $59 consult fee. A wonderful nurse practitioner calls in less than 2 hours. These MDs and NPs had a long, involved teleconference w/ Zelenko, so they are totally up to speed and very thorough. Given my age, where we live (NJ) and my allergy/mild asthma history . . . I will now be receiving the 7 week prophylactic course of HCQ.

          Adding my own zinc sulphate, which I have to acquire. (I have citrate and picolinate)
          It’s one pill (200mg) for 5 days, taken with the zinc.

          After that it’s one pill a week. And I have an additional 6 week refill with this Rx.

          I did solve the mystery with Zelenko always stating that the zinc sulfate dosage is 200 mg. When you search the pills, it’s always 50 mg of zinc sulphate contained in the 200 mg pill.”

      Think of all the debts to China that could be cancelled!

      What in H is China going to do if all the countries in the world cancel the debts as reparations? Start a war with the entire world?

  3. Q post 4300 links to an article in The Federalist:

    https://thefederalist.com/2020/05/21/how-the-obama-administration-weaponized-surveillance-laws-to-target-trump/

    Federal surveillance laws put in place after Nixon were supposed to protect U.S. citizens. The Obama administration used them to spy on political opponents.”

    “The story thus far is complex, but it reveals a disturbing abuse of power by the Obama administration that suggests congressional reform of federal surveillance laws is needed to ensure this never happens again.”

    ____________

    STOP IT.

    STOP the *&^%ing GAMES.

    If the laws that were ‘supposed’ to protect U.S. citizens after NIXON didn’t stop it, then any laws passed by the current government mafia sure as *&^% won’t stop it either, you mo-ron.

    WTH is wrong with you?

    Were you born stupid or did you get hit in the face with a shovel?

    ………………………
    Reform
    re·​form | \ ri-ˈfȯrm

    transitive verb

    1. standard propaganda term used to create a false sense of assurance to the public that critical corrections have been or will be made, when no change is actually even contemplated, much less possible.
    ……………………..

    Is there a SINGLE large institution, in the history of mankind, that has ever been successfully ‘reformed’ according to the antiquated definition of the word ‘reform’?

    If the answer is ‘no’ (and sure as *&^% is), then STOP *&@^ING lying to us about ‘reform’, you *#&^ing liars.

      How *&^%ing stupid are you?

      If any ‘reform charade’ is trotted out for public consumption, they will still be doing it WHILE THE LAW IS BEING SIGNED.

      Unless you BURN IT DOWN, it will never stop.

      What part of this is hard to understand?

      The people doing it are CRIMINALS.

      Criminals inside our government.

      Which ‘laws’ do criminals follow?

      None?

      Then WHY would they follow ANOTHER law forbidding the exact same thing the old laws already forbid, which they didn’t pay any attention to either?

      It’s stupid.

      And these idiots report on it like THIS time they REALLY mean it…

  4. Just putting this out there….

    Derek Lowe has been commenting on the pharma biz for a while and is quite informative (and technical). His posts on “things I won’t work with” including the classic https://blogs.sciencemag.org/pipeline/archives/2008/02/26/sand_wont_save_you_this_time are classics. (Followed closely by another series of “things I’m glad I don’t do”.)

    He’s got a new post about CV, noting something strange…..
