Dear KAG: 20200708 Open Thread

Hot enough for ya?

I like mine crispy, how about you?

And now for something completely different.

That just popped into my feed and I thought y’all might like it.

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….

The beginning of Psalm 105

Alleluia. Give glory to the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. [2] Who shall declare the powers of the Lord? who shall set forth all his praises? [3] Blessed are they that keep judgment, and do justice at all times. [4] Remember us, O Lord, in the favour of thy people: visit us with thy salvation. [5] That we may see the good of thy chosen, that we may rejoice in the joy of thy nation: that thou mayst be praised with thy inheritance.

[6] We have sinned with our fathers: we have acted unjustly, we have wrought iniquity. [7] Our fathers understood not thy wonders in Egypt: they remembered not the multitude of thy mercies: And they provoked to wrath going up to the sea, even the Red Sea. [8] And he saved them for his own name’s sake: that he might make his power known. [9] And he rebuked the Red Sea, and it was dried up: and he led them through the depths, as in a wilderness. [10] And he saved them from the hand of them that hated them: and he redeemed them from the hand of the enemy.

[11] And the water covered them that afflicted them: there was not one of them left. [12] And they believed his words: and they sang his praises. [13] They had quickly done, they forgot his works: and they waited not for his counsels. [14] And they coveted their desire in the desert: and they tempted God in the place without water. [15] And he gave them their request: and sent fulness into their souls.

[16] And they provoked Moses in the camp, Aaron the holy one of the Lord. [17] The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan: and covered the congregation of Abiron. [18] And a fire was kindled in their congregation: the flame burned the wicked. [19] They made also a calf in Horeb: and they adored the graven thing. [20] And they changed their glory into the likeness of a calf that eateth grass.

[21] They forgot God, who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt, [22] Wondrous works in the land of Cham: terrible things in the Red Sea. [23] And he said that he would destroy them: had not Moses his chosen stood before him in the breach: To turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them. [24] And they set at nought the desirable land. They believed not his word, [25] And they murmured in their tents: they hearkened not to the voice of the Lord.

[26] And he lifted up his hand over them: to overthrow them in the desert; [27] And to cast down their seed among the nations, and to scatter them in the countries. [28] They also were initiated to Beelphegor: and ate the sacrifices of the dead. [29] And they provoked him with their inventions: and destruction was multiplied among them. [30] Then Phinees stood up, and pacified him: and the slaughter ceased.

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.

Can you tell it’s summer?

  1. Numerous Texas Sheriffs Vow To Not Enforce ‘Draconian’ Mask Rule
    https://www.westernjournal.com/numerous-texas-sheriffs-vow-not-enforce-draconian-mask-rule/

    Sheriffs in nine Texas counties will not enforce the state’s new mask mandate amid a resurgence of coronavirus cases.

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, last week ordered masks to be worn in public buildings and outdoor spaces where physical distancing is not possible, The Texas Tribune reported.

    The mask mandate applies to all counties with more than 20 active cases of the coronavirus, but exempts those under the age of 10, those who are eating and those who are exercising.

    Fox News reported under the mandate, officers can cite people up to $250 for not wearing a mask if they are repeatedly found to be in violation of the order.

    Sheriffs in at least nine counties, however, have announced they will not enforce the mask rule, CBS News reported.

    One complaint from some of the sheriffs is that the rule is unenforceable, as it uses ambiguous language about detaining those who do not wear masks in public.

    Per the CBS report, a number of the sheriffs feel that merely stopping a person for not wearing a mask is, by definition, a detention.

    Law enforcement officers in Denton, Houston, Montgomery, Gillespie, Upshur, Kerr, Gregg, Nacogdoches and Panola counties will disregard the order.

    While we in law enforcement are desperately trying to build trust w/our community and are spread incredibly thin with the huge rise in violent crime, we are now expexcted to enforce yet another draconian mask law.

    Everyone needs to wear a mask, but don’t put us in this position.

    Like his niece Mary, Trump’s older sister Maryanne knew exactly who he was: a loser saved by a huge inheritance. Trump’s younger brother Robert, who Trump tortured, knows the truth too. He hates Donald, but remains terrified of him.

          1. Israel has crooked leftists and a deep state too. Look what they’ve done to Bibi and his wife.
            Theresa May was the first to visit POTUS because of her shop’s involvement w/ Brennan’s evil plan. To think that country’s don’t try to get/use dirt on other country’s through their gathered intelligence is naive. JE and Maxwell have the goods on many rich people, which gives them access to use their money to direct politicians, universities, companies, and others to make/affect policies and outcomes of their choosing. if Israel’s DS wanted the US Congress to do something, those 2 could facilitate it.

      1. Yes. California doesn’t manage its resources well. Responsible people and states should not have to bail them out when we [could have] told them what would happen. It’s like watching kids who won’t listen and won’t learn, and yet you can see what’s coming.

  8. Fascinating Bio of Robert Maxwell, Ghislaine Maxwell’s Father
    —Ace
    Robert Barnes’ recap of the career of Robert Maxwell (Ghislaine’s dad) is amazing.

    Maxwell supposedly died of a heart attack while on his yacht. There is wide speculation that he was actually abducted, tortured for information, and then returned to the yacht dead.

    He was connected to every western intelligence agency — and every communist one too.

    Parts of LeCarre’s Russia House were lifted right from his bio.

    And isn’t it odd that Jeffrey Epstein seems to have been in the same business?

    Trump’s Secretary of Labor, Acosta, said that he was told to go easy on Epstein by the intelligence community.

    1. This reeks of Satan Soros, and his cloven hoof-prints are all over this. Yet another “Open Society” screed of drivel. Here’s an excerpt, emphasis mine.

      Very telling of this Socialist leech’s intent, background, and motivation. What in the HE!! did she learn in her Econ classes in North Carolina (dare I ask)???

      The private, for-profit housing market has utterly failed working people

      Not just here and now, but everywhere and always.

      Because capitalism is completely incapable of meeting the most basic needs of working people.

      Internationally, the working class needs to take the top 500 corporations into democratic public ownership, run by workers, in the interests of human need and the environment, not billionaire greed.

      I have a message for Jeff Bezos and his class.

      If you attempt again to overturn the Amazon Tax, working people will go all out in the thousands to defeat you.
      And we will not stop there.

      Because you see, we are fighting for far more than this tax, we are preparing the ground for a different kind of society.

      And if you, Jeff Bezos, want to drive that process forward by lashing out against us in our modest demands, then so be it.

      Because we are coming for you and your rotten system.

      We are coming to dismantle this deeply oppressive, racist, sexist, violent, utterly bankrupt system of capitalism, this police state.

      We cannot and will not stop until we overthrow it and replace it with a world based instead on solidarity, genuine democracy, and equality – a socialist world.

      So, International Workers, check.
      Run by workers, check.
      Bezos and his class (i.e. class war), check.
      Workers unite, check.
      We will not stop there (how DARE you), check.
      A different kind of society, check.
      Overthrow, replace, WORLD based, etc., check.
      A SOCIALIST WORLD, check.

      Gee, now where (and how many times) have we heard that Satanic lie before????? International Workers’ Movement… lines right up with Antifa (the fist), et. al.

      If she advocates overthrowing the “system”, actually the government, then revoke her citizenship, deport her (and her family, if any), and let her chill in Venezuela, Red China, Iran, or any of the $#!+holes in the Moslem world. I doubt Modi will let her back into India…..
