Wow, it’s July already. Where does the time go?

A little pep talk from the original Thomas Paine, courtesy of Q.

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated. – Thomas Paine
Q

And why is this conflict so trying and confounding? An outstanding piece of long-time investigative reporting shared by Cuppa Covfefe pretty much tells the tale of how the opposing troops were prepared.

Okay, some travelling music on this journey we call life, and a reminder that under cover operations are incredibly dangerous.

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

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.

In addition, it is requested that there be no swinging from the chandeliers, celebratory gunfire, messing around with the nuclear weapons, and, please, everyone wash your hands.

Please, do not forget to apply sunscreen after a sensible amount of time in the sun so as to beef up the level of vitamin D in the system.

Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree which is currently going through its water cooler/canteen phase. Please, venture over there for any such thoughts and comments. This sort of thing is always a possibility on that site:

American mainstream media sorts are holding out on some really interesting information of what’s going on in the world. A pox on them.

A few other vital notes:

Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.

Ridiculing the other side, on the other hand…well….

From Chapter 5 of the Prophecy of Amos:

[6] Seek ye the Lord, and live: lest the house of Joseph be burnt with fire, and it shall devour, and there shall be none to quench Bethel. [7] You that turn judgment into wormwood, and forsake justice in the land, [8] Seek him that maketh Arcturus, and Orion, and that turneth darkness into morning, and that changeth day into night: that calleth the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is his name. [9] He that with a smile bringeth destruction upon the strong, and waste upon the mighty. [10] They have hated him that rebuketh in the gate: and have abhorred him that speaketh perfectly.

[11] Therefore because you robbed the poor, and took the choice prey from him: you shall build houses with square stone, and shall not dwell in them: you shall plant most delightful vineyards, and shall not drink the wine of them. [12] Because I know your manifold crimes, and your grievous sins: enemies of the just, taking bribes, and oppressing the poor in the gate. [13] Therefore the prudent shall keep silence at that time, for it is an evil time. [14] Seek ye good, and not evil, that you may live: and the Lord the God of hosts will be with you, as you have said. [15] Hate evil, and love good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be the Lord the God of hosts may have mercy on the remnant of Joseph.

[16] Therefore thus saith the Lord the God of hosts the sovereign Lord: In every street there shall be wailing: and in all places that are without, they shall say: Alas, alas! and they shall call the husbandman to mourning, and such as are skillful in lamentation to lament. [17] And in all vineyards there shall be wailing: because I will pass through in the midst of thee, saith the Lord. [18] Woe to them that desire the day of the Lord: to what end is it for you? the day of the Lord is darkness, and not light. [19] As if a man should flee from the face of a lion, and a bear should meet him: or enter into the house, and lean with his hand upon the wall, and a serpent should bite him. [20] Shall not the day of the Lord be darkness, and not light: and obscurity, and no brightness in it?

[21] I hate, and have rejected your festivities: and I will not receive the odour of your assemblies. [22] And if you offer me holocausts, and your gifts, I will not receive them: neither will I regard the vows of your fat beasts. [23] Take away from me the tumult of thy songs: and I will not hear the canticles of thy harp. [24] But judgment shall be revealed as water, and justice as a mighty torrent. [25] Did you offer victims and sacrifices to me in the desert for forty years, O house of Israel?

[26] But you carried a tabernacle for your Moloch, and the image of your idols, the star of your god, which you made to yourselves. [27] And I will cause you to go into captivity beyond Damascus, saith the Lord, the God of hosts is his name.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, members of the Cabinet, first responders and those working behind the scenes.

Are we ready for the fireworks?

    I Started A Conservative Gun Fight

    Every once in a while, a column stirs up some chaos. Last week we talked about guns, both in hypothetical terms about why we need them to ensure our freedom and in practical terms about which ones to use. I got a lot of input. Well, suffice it to say that people agree with me about the need for every armed, able-bodied citizen to pack some freedom heat. Sure, Townhall VIP is probably just a bit of a self-selecting demographic, but the sheer number of folks arming up for the first time – or increasing their already substantial armories – was a true testament to the effect of the Great Awokening that the leftist cold war has sparked among Normal Americans.

    There are a lot more not-yet-cold, dead hands out there these days.

      Senate Democrats block Republicans’ anti-infanticide bill
      Alex Swoyer The Washington Times
      February 25, 2019

      Republicans’ effort to outlaw infanticide of babies born after botched abortions collapsed Monday, falling victim to a Democrat-led filibuster in what could be Congress’s only chance to vote on the hot-button issue this year.

      The GOP-led Senate only mustered 53 votes seven shy of the 60 needed to overcome the Democratic filibuster. Three Democrats crossed the aisle to back the bill, while three Republicans missed the vote.

      Backers said they were driven to act by recent state laws and bills they said would allow abortions up to the point of birth and, in at least the case of one failed piece of legislation in Virginia, would have allowed a child born despite an attempted abortion to be left to die.

          From Cornell Law:

          Suits Against State Officials
          Courts may open their doors for relief against government wrongs under the doctrine that sovereign immunity does not prevent a suit to restrain individual officials, thereby restraining the government as well.113 The doctrine is built upon a double fiction: that for purposes of the sovereign’s immunity, a suit against an official is not a suit against the government, but for the purpose of finding state action to which the Constitution applies, the official’s conduct is that of the state.114 The doctrine preceded but is most noteworthily associated with the decision in Ex parte Young,115 a case that deserves the overworked adjective, seminal.

          .
          Tort Actions Against State Officials.
          In Tindal v. Wesley,163 the Court adopted the rule of United States v. Lee,164 a tort suit against federal officials, to permit a tort action against state officials to recover real property held by them and claimed by the state and to obtain damages for the period of withholding. The immunity of a state from suit has long been held not to extend to actions against state officials for damages arising out of willful and negligent disregard of state laws.165 The reach of the rule is evident in Scheuer v. Rhodes,166 in which the Court held that plaintiffs were not barred by the Eleventh Amendment or other immunity doctrines from suing the governor and other officials of a state alleging that they deprived plaintiffs of federal rights under color of state law and seeking damages, when it was clear that plaintiffs were seeking to impose individual and personal liability on the officials. There was no “executive immunity” from suit, the Court held; rather, the immunity of state officials is qualified and varies according to the scope of discretion and responsibilities of the particular office and the circumstances existing at the time the challenged action was taken.167

    Fox News anchor Ed Henry fired after sexual misconduct investigation
    Politico

    ,Politico•July 1, 2020

    Fox News anchor Ed Henry has been fired after an investigation into an allegation of “willful sexual misconduct” leveled last week by a former employee, according to an internal memo from the network’s leadership.

    In a companywide message sent Wednesday morning, Fox News Media CEO Suzanne Scott and Fox News Media President and Executive Editor Jay Wallace said they “received a complaint” about Henry last Thursday from the former employee’s attorney “involving willful sexual misconduct in the workplace years ago.”

    Scott and Wallace said they “immediately retained an outside law firm” which had never represented the network in any prior investigations or litigation “to independently investigate” the accusations.

    “Ed was suspended the same day and removed from his on-air responsibilities pending investigation,” Scott and Wallace said. “Based on investigative findings, Ed has been terminated.”

    LGBTQ history must be taught in Illinois public schools starting in the 2020-2021 school year. The bill also requires schools to purchase textbooks that are “non-discriminatory” and “include the roles and contributions of all people protected under the Illinois Human Rights Act.”

    The legislation also requires the state’s public schools to teach at least one semester of civics any time between sixth and eighth grades. The lessons must focus on government institutions, discussion of current and societal issues and simulations of the democratic process.

        And this particular friend is an editor. Not sure what she knows about the 4 am talking points. I’d almost rather start with one of the videos of the “sameness” that comes from wire service and press release regurgitation.

        1. Editors ARE the problem, according to Sy Hersh. They’re the proven enforcers. Even though it is unlikely that she will change her tune, if she did, she would be FIRED. The secret, lone, unsupported suspicion that this is true, is how “enforcing the enforcers” works. Editors are all alone with the truth of “what I cannot say without severe punishment”.

          My suggestion is to RECRUIT her. Treat her like a potential SPY ASSET. Suggest-notize openly, quietly, and unobserved that “I know you can’t admit this openly, but…… BLAH BLAH BLAH…”. Build in her a layer that allows her to question, secretly, everything around her.

          Do NOT force her to admit publicly anything. Make her feel that any admission she will make to you will NEVER be repeated – and that you will defend her and her job if her liberal cred is threatened.

          Good luck with your mission. This post will self-destruct in……. [never].

          1. One of the things I’m running into isn’t just the echo chamber talking points, but the support group that repeats them which reinforced the echo chamber.

            Probing questions work with the open minded. These people are not. They need a foothold into the matrix. Probing questions are not going to provide that. A 9-11 level emotional bomb is what it’s going to take. My sister is in the same place mentally, and I can’t get past it with her.

The ONLY problem I have is that the allegation came form “years back” Surely they KNEW this (the filing party) that Henry was just suspended last year, why wait till NOW, and AFTER he gets a new gig too? Sounds more like someone was wronged and waited till Henry was at a high point, instead of a low point (IE $$$) to take him out. I suspect that his increase in exposure and pay was the reason this was brought instead of THEN. Someone is looking to cash in on Ed’s new found income. JMHO, but they COULD have did this last year and nailed the coffin shut, when it would have been EASY, yet they “waited” until Ed got PAID.

          Was Ed by chance on any sort of a pro Trump rally? That is usually the impetus for these allegations. They GOT O Reilly, they TRIED to get Hannity, and I think Charles Payne as well. This after Ailes too.

    1. This is the 1884 version of the oath of enlistment.

      The current oath:

      “I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

      I guess whoever started this trend didn’t trust the chain of command.

      Currently, the person taking the oath is allowed to omit “So help me God,” and it is not actually part of of the Presidential Oath of Office (Article II, Section 1, last paragraph), nor was it in the original oaths of office the House of Representatives and Senate wrote for themselves.

      The first *reliable* account of someone adding “So help me God” to the oath was Chester Alan Arthur, but even *he* omitted it when he first swore the oath in semi-private immediately after his predecessor (James Garfield) died of an assassin’s bullet. He added it for the public ceremony two days later. Woodrow Wilson swore the oath without “so help me God” in private, then at the public ceremony the next day, added it.

      Incidentally contrary to what you may have heard, it’s exceedingly unlikely that George Washington added “so help me God.” No contemporary account says he did so, and it would have been out of character for him; he did everything he could to follow the Constitution scrupulously. He was most definitely in the room when it was written and knew what was in the oath. Furthermore there had been a lot of wrangling over precisely what the ceremony should look like, down to when people should stand or be seated. (This was totally uncharted territory back then, an oath of office to take the reins of a republic, and absolutely every detail was examined for the tone it would set.) The accounts that claim Washington did so trace back to one written by Washington Irving in 1856. Irving *was* at the ceremony, but over 200 feet away, and a boy at the time, whose head would have been buried in the crowd. How he could possibly have heard a notoriously soft-spoken man at that distance, through a huge crowd, where no *contemporary* account heard it…well, it’d take a miracle, and it’s more likely that Irving was either mistaken or telling a tall tale.

  24. Reposting this from LIFELOG – FWIW

    Someone posted on a group I’m in. 🤷
    ANTIFA / TERRORIST ATTACK PLAN ON 4th OF JULY:

    PLEASE be aware this July 4……. 30,000 members per state…many trained by radical Islam – plan on killing as many Trump supporters and whites as possible!!

    ANTIFA To Desecrate Gettysburg National Cemetery on July 4 – Then MURDER & BURN White Suburbs under cover of “Fireworks” ANTIFA is planning to desecrate the Gettysburg National Cemetery by burning flags there on July 4; just before they begin MURDERING White people and BURNING DOWN Suburbs the same day. It will start at the desecration of Union Solder graves at Gettysburg, Pa. According to the Controlled Unclassified Law Enforcement Bulletin issued as “Law Enforcement Sensitive – For Official Use Only” to Police and Fire Departments about ANTIFA already using fireworks to acclimate suburbia with sounds of explosions, so they can use those to cover for gun fire when they attack white, suburban, neighborhoods the same day. According to Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) in a Bulletin issued to Police and Fire Departments, ANTIFA has been taking deliveries of very large shipments of professional-grade fireworks. They have been sending teams out to various areas throughout America to detonate those fireworks for the past two weeks, to achieve

    Three (3) specific objectives: 1) The first objective is to test the response of local law enforcement. If fireworks are going off around the clock and residents are filing complaints, will police respond? How long does it take them to respond? How many officers? Do they even respond at all? This data is being recorded by these groups, and will prove to be very valuable intel for what is to come. This is a very accurate barometer to test the waters. 2) The second objective is to get local residents (ie: white people in nearby neighborhoods) acclimated to the frequent sounds of explosions that often sound like gunfire. 3) The final objective: Knowing response times and manpower of police, and having acclimated the local population into explosion sounds that mimic gunfire, to then commit arson attacks with professional fireworks to set so many fires, local Emergency Services are immediately overwhelmed, and enter houses to actually fire guns and kill as many as possible in white suburbs.

    Unless you have been living on different planet, you should be fully aware that America is currently under attack. While mass-media has portrayed this situation as “peaceful protests” those engaged have been rioting, smashing private property and businesses, looting on a scale which is un-paralleled, and beating, stabbing, shooting innocent people in the areas where these activities are taking place. You have probably also read or overheard many reports of illegal fireworks and explosions that are currently taking place throughout many different US cities. If you do a Google search for “fireworks complaints” you will find countless articles posted just in the last week or so. Most of these news reports are local, since local news is far more likely to have boots on the ground and residents reporting an accurate assessment as to what is actually going on. However, national media outlets are largely attempting to paint this “uptick” in fireworks activity as a sign of people being overly “celebratory” in preparation for the 4th of July. Here in Roanoke I have been hearing fireworks(?) each PM. Last PM there were a lot!! At first I thought of gun fire because the way they went off. Don’t know. Here are the facts, so please pay close attention. As a result of major 4th of July events being shut down and cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, an overwhelming surplus of fireworks have flooded the market. Several activist groups including ANTIFA, BLM and Weather-Underground are exploiting this surplus and are bulk purchasing from suppliers in extremely high volumes. In many cases, these are highly dangerous, professional-grade fireworks. The number of people within these groups must not be underestimated. They operate like terrorists and use clandestine communication strategies. There are many members of these in groups in most major cities, and have been for several years. Yes, these are essentially domestic terror cells, and as you’ve likely guessed, this is indeed the year in which they have been instructed to carry out their master’s dystopian agenda. What they are doing is delivering fireworks in bulk, via moving trucks and vans. You may have remembered the pallets of bricks that were being dropped off at various locations so Rioters could use those bricks to destroy property? This is a similar strategy. Once these fireworks are delivered, they are then distributing them to any black people who wish to set them off for their own entertainment, Pass this on, as it could save lives if it is true. The Social media police haven’t stamped it as being false or anything.

      The United States is ranked number one in the world when it comes to gun ownership. Estimates show that there are anywhere from over 200 million to more than 350 million guns in the U.S. Because of variances in regulations throughout the nation, it’s impossible to get exact numbers when it comes to the total number of guns in the nation and the number of guns in each state.

Said MUCH of the footage was recycled, and using camera angles that made them LOOK much bigger than they were. THAT I believe.

      1. That’s really a sad, but true, commentary on the state of today’s society.

        When I was young, I had a chemistry set with REAL chemicals in it, some of them quite dangerous, and a few potentially fatal. I was born a little to late to get the A.C. Gilbert Radioactivity add-on, sigh… I also had bricks, Lincoln Logs, Tinker Toys, and Kenner Girder-Panel and Highway, and the ubiquitous Erector Sets (with a motor which provided many hours of sometimes very dangerous fun – Al Borland would scold me for using the output shaft rather than the spur gears 🙂

        NONE OF THESE came pre-assembled, so I had to build (and invent, as it were) everything from scratch, and often my friends would come by and help, or I’d go over and visit them and their toys.

        I also had a Philips EE8 electronics kit, again unassembled, with the components out in the open, where one could touch them, assemble them, and learn to handle them carefully. Really interesting to have a hands-on experience with components, where only even a few years later the kits were dumbed-down such that the components were placed in little cardboard cubes, ostensibly to protect the budding young electronics engineer… at 4.5 or 9 volts, no less…

        In general, playing with toys and kits has become a passive experience, where everything is either preassembled, or there are only a limited number of options for assembly. Look at how Lego has devolved from being a build-your-own thing to a marketing tool of Hollyweird (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Friends, Barbie, The Simpsons, etc., etc., etc.). Nothing for a kid to do except follow the instructions… sad…

        [Side note: when my son was really ill, I bought him a Playmobil Hospital, with various accessories like a sonogram machine, Defi, oxygen tanks, ECGs, monitors, etc. We put it together, and then he built his own, from scratch, out of Lego. He had fun with both, but building his own was probably more fun…].

        Same thing with books/radio/TV/etc. Times were when we’d read books (or even scare the crap out of each other inventing ghost stories, etc.), or play games like Monopoly, Scrabble, Aggravation, Clue, Sorry, and many others, where either skill, luck, or both were needed, as well as active participation.

        Then along came radio, then TV, where all the imagining was done for us (OH, what a traumatic moment it was when we heard the voices of Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Sally, the teacher/parents, and even Snoopy, Woodstock, and the others for the first time: often completely different from what we’d heard in our heads reading the comic strips and books. [Charles Schulz and Bill Melendez talk about that in one of the Peanuts Anthologies]. From being an active participatant in our entertainment and recreation in our spare time, we became passive participants, with ideas, concepts, actions, and things basically fed to us, controlling us, rather than us controlling them.

        The internet and explosion of the number, type, and power of devices (iThings) has only accelerated and darkened this madness. Goodness knows what the tangled wicked web of the IoT (Internet of Things) will bring…

        We are being made passive and compliant, and that with our implicit, tacit, and probably unsuspecting consent. And with that loss of control and initiative comes the opening for the elites and the deep state to control and brainwash us. As it’s said, an idle mind is the Devil’s playground….

        May GOD forgive, protect, and save us all from where this is leading…

          Heath Kits….
          Radio Shack (Just closed in our area a couple years ago)
          Tandy Leather….

          About all we have now is Micheal’s and Hobby Lobby.

          On the other hand, handcrafts are making a comeback. Spinning, weaving, dying wool….

          A young fellow we know from Taxeschusetts actually apprenticed to an old farmer to learn the old skills. He is now working with us to learn about horses

        2. You can still get kits. My nephews get them all the time.

          and every now and then we get my dad’s Lionel O-Gauge out of the basement. The original set was purchased, I understand, in 1941.

      2. I arranged boxes from an appliance store one summer and soon our backyard was “Box City”. It rarely rained in San Diego and my children and their friends had so much fun with them. The next summer, as soon as school was out, they wanted to know when I was going to get boxes. Every summer after that, we did “Box City”.
        A few years ago, my son’s pool furniture came in some great big boxes. Immediately, he and their little ones built “Box City” in one room in their basement. All their friends’ children love it, too. Just big boxes…😁

    2. I love to see ingenuity in kids, wherever it exists, but particularly in third world nations, and even more so when it results in happy kids.

      I hate to see skinny kids with bloated stomachs, in obvious distress, in some of those same third world nations, particularly when we know that millions of dollars in foreign aid only serve to line the pockets of corrupt and cruel dictators of those nations.

      1. AND THAT is how the police build good relationships with the community.

        As a young kid we had an all white school. There was a Black motorcycle cop that showed up every afternoon when school let out. He must have been the most popular guy in town. All the kids went over to see him and say Hi. The boys loved to talk to him about his bike.

        He was not there to direct traffic or anything. He just sat on his bike on the grass under a tree near the school.

      1. Not quite clear on the concept of F=MA and its permutations… From the looks of it, she might be only familiar with Newton’s Fourth Law: one fig per newton…

  25. A Comment on Chaz/Chop or whatever they call it.

    I think it turned into a real win for President Trump.

    The Demon-Rats were hoping to stampede him into coming down hard on the ‘Peaceful Protestors’ Instead he sat back offered help and made it clear it was up to the ELECTED mayors and governors to deal with a LOCAL problem.

    Meanwhile the people trapped in Chaz, their friends, EMPLOYERS, relatives… were plastering the Mayor’s phone, voicemail email and maybe even snail mail with demands she DO SOMETHING! The real turning point was the murders. “The Summer of Love’ rhetoric just wasn’t going to cut it anymore and the mayor took the first chance (her home being protested) to get out of the mess. Of course the optics HER HOME MATTERS — YOURS DOESN’T was an even worse ‘look’ for the Left.

    Remember to the Left ‘Virtue signalling’ is all well and good until it inconveniences THEM. The rioters are not only inconveniencing people, they are SCARING people and President Trump is ALLOWING them to lay the blame directly where it belongs, on the Left.

    1. President Trump didn’t “allow” anything.

      He simply refused to be baited into the trap they wanted him to fall into. And when it became clear he wasn’t. going to fall into the trap, the trap imploded upon itself and splattered all over those who set the trap.
