Dear KAG: 20200623 Open Thread

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.

Ahem.

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.

We’re still in the Sermon on the Mount at this point in the cycle:


MT 7:1-5

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.

  1. Apparently, Terry McAuliffe is happy that Uncle Joe is secluded. According to McAuliffe, Pedo Joe only sees two people a day:

    One is either his wife or a caregiver, Joe can’t tell them apart, who brings his food and wipes his mouth.
    The other is some guy Joe sees frequently in a mirror, but can’t identify.

    Thanks for the info, Terry.

    1. Someone else tweeted today that Biden has had another stroke and the democrats are terrified that people are going to find out. Apparently his left arm and leg is paralyzed. Don’t know if this is true, as there was no link with the tweet, just supposed inside information. We shall see.

    If you ever get trapped and have to hit protesters with a vehicle to get out of harms way, this will be useful to show WHY you feared for your life.

    Lexington police release video in search for suspect in assault during Monday’s protest

    Police said that a group of protesters “acted outside of an otherwise peaceful event” and attacked a car driving at Midland Avenue and Main Street. The driver and his wife were both pulled out of the car and beaten by three men, police said. The driver suffered a concussion, and his wife suffered a swollen eye, police said.

    The victims’ three children were in the car when the assault happened, police said….

    The couple told police that the unidentified suspect featured in the video broke a window on their vehicle by hitting it multiple times with a skateboard, police said….

      ISIS went about destroying religious and iconic places and relics, stole (looted) from those countries and their people, burned churches, tore down and destroyed statues and monuments to history of various cultures, and occupied territory. The ONLY thing these domestic terrorist’s have not done (yet) to fully emulate ISIS is kill Christians and foreigners by beheading and setting them on fire. Propaganda videos and all. OIt IS coming.

            It beggars belief.

            In Scotland, they wrote ‘racist’ on the plinth of Robert the Bruce’s statue. The man lived during the Middle Ages, for pity’s sake. On the other hand, maybe a frustrated Englishman is responsible for the graffiti. 😉

            Protests are illegal here during the pandemic. Yet, last Saturday, London’s Metropolitan Police were giving instructions for the demo that day!

            That one was peaceful. There was a black tie ‘do’ afterwards, the BBC said. I wonder if it was a fundraiser.

            Anyway, we’re looking forward to July 4, which will be an Independence Day of sorts here, too. Pubs and barber shops can reopen. More restrictions will be lifted. There are so many, I can’t remember them all. Even so, not everything will be able to reopen at that time.

            1. Good news on the reopenings! Take care my friend, all will be well in the end. ALL these fools are doing is gathering MORE support for Trump and Johnson. They have NO idea what is coming for them Nov 3rd.

              I will give you the right of my FIRST prediction on that night. Remember what happened in the UK just a few short months ago to Corbin and Labor? That will not even be a BLIP on the radar after Nov 3rd and what happens to Biden and the Dems.

              I am thinking a HISTORIC beatdown, with, at the end of the night Trump reelected in a LANDSLIDE, and Reps retaking the House, in an exact mirror of what it is now or GREATER for Reps, and 5-10 Senate seats GAINED as well. Local govts will have a BLOODBATH for anyone with a “D” behind their name, and Dem Mayors and Govs will drop like flies in the Sahara. When Nov 3rd is over, we will see Trump0 in FIRM control, with a MANDATE of the people, and the LOWEST numbers of dems in our govt since WW1.

              1. I really hope you are right, friend!

                That would be fantastic.

                I am concerned about postal ballots in CA and NY. I also hope the voting machines are correctly calibrated.

                That said, these protests are helping draw people to PDJT. Also, a lot more data will come out about coronavirus, showing how awful the Dems really are.

                MAGA!

              2. NY and CA are a tough get without the fraud, LOTS of leftists, BUT I truly think that 2018 was ALLOWED to happen in the House, because then the good guys saw just HOW and WHERE the fraud was perpetrated, which means they will be PREPARED to stop it in Nov. Dems are one thing, STUPID, they always assume that because something worked ONCE, it will ALWAYS work,. but THAT is NOT the case under Trump.

                I give you example A with the current MSM RIGGED polls, NO WAY Biden is WITHING 10 points of Trump, let alone ten points ahead.

                The man has been AWOL for the better part of FOUR months, and when he DOES poke his head out, his ASS overloads his mouth, and he says something STUPID, which the MSM then have to try and defend or pretend did not happen.

                The man had an event that had SIX people, he had another event that drew LESS than fifty, and that included STAFF and MEDIA.

                He is like Hillary, the man CANNOT draw FLIES, and he and his “base” of radicals have ZERO enthusiasm, and only SEEK ANARCHY.. see by not COMING OUT, even tepidly, AGAINST ALL THE VIOLKENCE AND MAYHEM, JOE must THEREFORE condone IT.

                The American people, contrary to MSM reports, for the VAST part, are NOT stupid, and 99% just want to live their lives, have their jobs and vacations, send their kids to school, and be free to enjoy the fruits of their labor. They just want to be LEFT ALONE
                The American people, SEE what is going on, and they do NOT like it ONE bit, and they KNOW that THEY are the ONLY ones who can STOP it.

                We have a tendency to RISE to the occasion, see WW1, WW2, and more.

                The people who see the destruction and HATE what is happening FAR outnumber the vocal violent MINORITY that is being hyped more than Covid 19 was.

                The MSM WANTS the USA to be Venezuela, they will be MAJORLY disappointed, AGAIN.

                I said this to my son in EARLY 2015. The ONE Republican that comes out, draws a line, and says HERE and NO further, will win in 2016, win BIG, and they will NEVER see it coming.

                Then Trump came down that escalator in July, and spoke, I told him THAT day, There’s the man now. He said, NO WAY. I said there are MORE people like me, PISSED OFF at what is happening and BEEN happening to our country than you know, and we will crawl over HOT broken glass to vote for Trump. I was RIGHT then, and I am telling you my friend, there are EVEN MORE people like me PISSED OFF to the MAX this year! Watch and see! Stay safe my friend!

              3. Fully agree, Prex!

                Here in Europe we are getting the narrative that Biden is winning and that Trump will not be re-elected.

                Most people here can’t stand PDJT. I personally do not know anyone who likes him. I know only of Britons online who do.

                So, we have the rerun of the ‘Trump can’t win’ narrative from 2016, beginning with the Tulsa rally and now the Biden polls.

                It’s very tiresome, to say the least.

    1. Agreed. The FBI needs to be burned to the ground. They keep saying it’s just the ones at the top who are bad and the rank and file are good. I don’t believe that for a minute. They’re all a bunch of keystone cops who can’t tell the difference between their ass and a hole in the ground.

    2. Timing.

      The problem with doing it now, is that it would be political suicide for our President to ‘defund the FBI’.

      The Dems and their enemedia would proclaim:
      “Obstruction of Justice!”
      “He’s getting rid of the FBI because they have evidence of his crimes!”
      “Trump is a dictator who is destroying our institutions!”

      So I think the best way to do it…would be to ‘reorganize’ the FBI.
      A lot can be done under a reorganization:

      ‘We are reorganizing the FBI in order to streamline it and make it more efficient in handling the ongoing challenges in making our country safe.’

      Now, who could squawk about that.

        1. As long as hospital and death rates stay low we are good. A lot of these new cases are in the 20-30 age range group which generally experience mild flu symptoms and have a high rate of survival. Funny, that age range represents all those protesters that the big city Democrat Mayors gave their blessings to. Gov Abbott had no part in that.

          2. Sigh, these new cases are NOT REAL. Geez did not the Liberian President show the WORLD on the Covid testing? I guess it will take SOMEONE HERE in the US to do it.

            For reference, the Liberian President did NOT believe the Covid 19 tests were accurate. So, he sent in RIGGED samples of a goat, a dog, a paw paw tree, motor oil, and something else random.

            ALL came back Covid 19 POSITIVE. We are being HAD, they are TRYING it again, because they KNOW that the economy is REBOUNDING much BIGGER and FASTER than they thought it would. JUST like Trump told us it WOULD.

            One MORE time WITH feeling. Covid 19 cannot survive in temps 80 degrees or HIG1HER, it ALSO cannot survive in DIRECT sunlight, days are NOW 15 yours long, and it CANNOT survive in humidity ABOVE 40%.

            It is SUMMER, 95% of the country now has daytime temps and or humidity OUT of Covid’s range.

            This is yet ANOTHER FARCE being perpetuated and propagated by the MSM and the dems because of TWO things. ONE a rebounding and SURGING economy, which will only CONTINUE to explode as MORE places reopen FULLY. TWO, to STOP Trump’s rallies and KEEP Biden hidden in his basement.

            Trumps rallies FORCE Biden to come out of the basement or get CRUSHED. Biden CANNOT go on hiding and AVOIDING public appearances, and the gaffs, and VIEWS of his FRAIL condition IF he has to come out. His campaign would LOVE to keep him hidden and giving tele (edited) interviews, NOT live.

            The compare and contrast will be STARK.

            They KNOW this, but they NEED Biden hidden, Trump NOT having rallies, and the economy in the gutter with high unemployment to push the RUSE that Biden will win, look at the POLLS, vote by mail, IE STEAL it, and have it be PLAUSIBLE.

            CMON folks, Time to WAKE UP, Covid is OVER, its worse than that, its DEAD Jim. DO NOT let them TRY to manipulate you AGAIN. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me TWICE, shame on ME.

            Notice how the ONLY areas being listed are ALL BIG Republican areas, that opened earlier, yet there WERE dem areas that opened JUST as early, but THEY do not have the “issues” GIVE ME A BREAK FOLKS.

            Covid is DEAD, if it were NOT , WHY are they not in the LEAST concerned about all the “protests”? Masks? LMMFAO, I told you ALL that these paper and cloth makeshift masks 100% DO NOT stop a microscopic germ. I want ANYONE to dispute that. They CANNOT.

            WAKE UP GYUYS, it is yet ANOTHER narrative change, because NOW the public is appalled at the riots, attacks on statues, AND law enforcement, they NEED to change the subject, and PDQ.

            REENTER stage right the Covid ruse. NOT gonna fall for it AGAIN are you?

    1. The VERY first thing, day ONE of Trump’s second term, he MUST get the MSM and their propaganda UNDER CONTROL. Not by take over, but by RESCINDING the anti propaganda EO by Obama that made it LEGAL for the MSM to LIE to us. Just ONE signature, and that MUST stop, or the FCC takes their LISCENSE. It “IS after all PUBLIC airwaves that MOST of these people use.

      Think, IF this were attempted in WW2, they would have faced MORE than jail or having their license removed, they would have faced a firing squad for TREASON.

      Is it TOO MUCH to ask to SIMPLY have the press speak the TRUTH and NOT all manufactured LIES? NO, it is NOT. This is NOT Russia, and they are NOT PRAVDA.
