Just a little reminder of what the enemy is here, including the first five minutes and twenty seconds that could be repeated by President Trump re the press pretty much verbatim. The entire speech is worth listening to, not simply for the stellar construction of the text, but to understand what President Kennedy asked of the mainstream media, and what they failed to deliver.
This is our beloved Very Special Genius’s version of essentially the same thing albeit with more than five decades of the warnings of President Kennedy ignored.
And on Saturday evening at the rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the familiar phrase describing one arm of said establishment came up:
The roots of said Military Industrial Complex go back to World War One, and the War Industries Board. That’s over a hundred years. Undoing it all is taking time, and as Attorney General Barr explained to Maria Bartiromo over the weekend, the COVID situation and Antifa antics are causing the wheels of justice to grind to a halt. (See Wolfm00n’s excellent piece from Sunday for the details.)
A little mood music is in order:
And now for the nitty gritty of the Q Tree 5 minute, stand up, Tuesday morning meeting version of the Daily Thread.
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:
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
We’re still in the Sermon on the Mount at this point in the cycle:
Jesus said to his disciples:
“Stop judging, that you may not be judged.
For as you judge, so will you be judged,
and the measure with which you measure will be measured out to you.
Why do you notice the splinter in your brother’s eye,
but do not perceive the wooden beam in your own eye?
How can you say to your brother,
‘Let me remove that splinter from your eye,’
while the wooden beam is in your eye?
You hypocrite, remove the wooden beam from your eye first;
then you will see clearly
to remove the splinter from your brother’s eye.”
As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome. Via con Dios.
