And now for something completely different.

OOPS! My bad! This is movie theme day. Lemme see…how about the United Nations after hours….

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….

That should be a bit bigger, shouldn’t it. [EDIT: – I made it bigger! -W]


MT 11:25-27

At that time Jesus exclaimed:
“I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows the Son except the Father,
and no one knows the Father except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”

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?

  2. Stole this from NebraskaFilly over at Marica’s place

    The National Museum of African American History & Culture wants to make you aware of certain signs of whiteness: Individualism, hard work, objectivity, the nuclear family, progress, respect for authority, delayed gratification, more. (via

    “The website goes on to advise: “If you identify as white, acknowledging your white racial identity and its privileges is a crucial step to help end racism. Facing your whiteness is hard and can result in feelings of guilt, sadness, confusion, defensiveness, or fear.”

    It advises “concerned citizens”: “Whiteness operates in covert and overt ways that affect all of us. It can appear as practices within an institution or accepted social norms.”

    As a remedy, it advises the public to “combat” aspects of whiteness.

    The museum’s annual budget includes roughly $33 million from U.S. taxpayers, with the remainder provided by donors.

    This is not the first time the museum has commented on “whiteness.” Past examples include:”

    Shhh- nobody tell the Americans of Chinese, Indian, Iranian, Korean or Filipino origin that they are actually white, according to this chart.

    So what are they trying to say, black people don’t believe in two parent homes, don’t believe in reward for hard work, and have no respect for authority? No…This is what they want us to become — fatherless, dependent on the system, and lawless.

    Notice how they misrepresent everything? Got their ideas from “Max Webber” and never fixed them!

    PURITAN work ethic:
    Do your work as unto the Lord as an act of worship.
    That’s why you should work well, you are working for the Lord.…

    Reposted this on Facebook w/ the graphic of Jonathan Edwards:

    Beware of Cultural Assumptions

    Some people refer to the “Protestant Work Ethic” by borrowing concepts from Max Webber’s desacralized presentation: “Hard work is the key to success”, “Work before play”, “If you didn’t meet your goals, you didn’t work hard enough.” Work loses its sacred meaning and is distorted into an idol.

    This does NOT represent the PURITAN work ethic which did not have a sacred/secular divide. Instead of the gospel of “hard work” the Puritans taught that you should do your work as unto the Lord as an act of worship, as a way of glorifying God in your life. That’s why you should work well, because you are working for the Lord. And the act of worshiping God in all aspects of life prevents us from having the Sunday/Work week divide. For the Christian, every day is a day of worship.

    2. Another problem that really annoys me: The false dichotomy between “individual” and “community”.

      Leftists LOVE to pit individuals -VERSUS- community in a zero-sum game – if you exercise your individual rights, you are taking from the community.

      They frame it this way to try to bully conservatives into defending untenable positions that represent atomistic libertarianism rather than conservatism – individual identity to the exclusion of all relationships but those voluntarily entered into.

      The leftist loves this because he can have a heyday talking about how we are a community and that means WRONGLY that individuals have to “cede” some of their rights to become part of something bigger than themselves.

      Nasty poison pill, that.

      Individuals and community should not be pitted against each other. Ideally, they complement and enhance one another.

      Strong individuals contribute to and benefit communities. Strong communities provide benefits for individuals.

      The stronger and more productive the individual the stronger and more productive the community can be.

      The rights of the individual DO NOT CONFLICT with the rights of the community. That is the beauty of the American experiment.

      Any place where there is seeming conflict is a point where rights should be de-conflicted and harmonized, not neglected for the individual versus community, or the community against the individual.

      Most LEFTISTS do not get “Win/Win” negotiations. They have a “winner take all” “zero sum” “win at all costs” “by any means necessary” mentality. They cannot appreciate what is involved in real teamwork b/c they are too narcissistic, selfish, and envious to make meaningful contributions to the good.

      I admire paratroopers.

      * General Gavin: “A leader in this outfit is the first one out the door of the airplane and the last one in the chow line.”

      * In the hold of a C-130, there are only two types of people: jumper and jumpmaster. In the words of an airborne battalion commander, “When you are in line at manifest, no one cares what rank you are: You are a paratrooper. The jumpmaster in charge might be a sergeant, a major, or a colonel. It doesn’t matter. He’s a jumpmaster and that’s who you are listening to. You look to your right and left to see who the junior guy is, and that’s who you are going to take care of. To me, that’s beautiful.” It is.

      * You don’t know who you are going to lose in the jump. So every single paratrooper down to the last man is trained and empowered to execute the complete mission, even if all the officers are lost.

      1. World War II, which occurred precisely at the juncture between air transport capability and the invention of the helicopter, saw history’s first and only mass use of paratroopers dropped into battle from the sky, perhaps the most courageous combat task seen in modern warfare. And “Jumpin’ Jim” Gavin was by all accounts America’s best paratrooper leader.

        His first combat jump was in Sicily, where as a battalion commander he found his men scattered all over the landscape in one of airborne’s greatest fiascos. Yet his stand with a few stalwarts at Biazza Ridge is credited with saving the U.S. invasion front. In Normandy, as assistant division commander of the 82nd Airborne, he won the eternal affection of his men for continuing to lead in combat, M-1 slung over his shoulder, even as his paratroopers were similarly scattered and faced German fire on all sides. His cool leadership served to coalesce the paratrooper bridgehead behind enemy lines until infantry from the beaches could finally reach them.
        During Operation Market Garden, now as commander of the 82nd, Gavin wrote a new chapter in paratrooper heroism, seizing all his objectives despite a serious spinal injury on landing. With hardly a respite after the grueling campaign in Holland, Gavin and his men were called upon for perhaps their most dangerous task—stemming the German onslaught during the Battle of the Bulge. Though most historical kudos have gone to the 101st Airborne in that battle, for their gallant stand at Bastogne, it was the 82nd’s stand at St. Vith—where the Germans truly wanted to break through—that equally foiled Hitler’s last offensive attempt in the west.

        After the war Gavin continued to earn as much respect from policymakers as he had from his men, providing commentary on our Cold War stance, the war in Vietnam, and as Kennedy’s ambassador to France. He was not an unflawed individual, as this comprehensive biography reveals, but an exceptional one in every sense, especially during his days of combat leadership during history’s greatest war.
        What this doesn’t tell you is that his men would follow him to the Gates of Hell and keep going knowing that He would bring them back again!

  3. NYT slapped with $10 million lawsuit by Liberty University
    Virginia’s conservative Liberty University today filed a $10 million defamation suit against the embattled New York Times for a “made up” and damaging story that falsely charged that students returning from spring break became infected with the coronavirus because the school stayed open.

    In a 100-page suit, with exhibits, filed in Virginia’s Lynchburg Circuit Court, the 49-year-old school also charged that New York Times reporter Elizabeth Williamson and photographer Julia Rendleman ignored “No Trespassing” signs to tour the campus at a time when the school was trying to keep outsiders, who could potentially be infected with COVID-19, away.

    The paper had no immediate comment.

    The long-threatened suit stems from a March 29 viral story that suggested several students were infected after returning from spring break. In fact, no student, staffer, or faculty member on campus was, or became, infected.

    The 87-year-old liberal was treated after reporting a fever and chills. She underwent a procedure to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed in August. On Tuesday, the court said that Ginsburg would remain in the hospital “for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment.”

  5. banners flying over NYC –brain child of Bannon

    The banners appear to be a bizarre stunt against the Chinese Communist Party launched by Steve Bannon and a fugitive Chinese billionaire, who together on the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre declared the Chinese government illegitimate.

    “From today the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will no longer be the lawful government of China,” the billionaire, Guo Wengui, shouted into a livestream from a boat in New York Harbor, with Bannon by his side and the Statue of Liberty in the background.

    “I’m here to tell everybody that loves peace, law, humanitarian — we’re going to end the Communist Party once and for all. We got hundreds of countries of support,” Guo claimed.

    Onlookers on Twitter said they noticed as many as eight planes carrying banners, some with the message “Congratulations to Federal State of New China!

      Twitter has had an APT (advanced persistent threat) IMO – probably China or Russia – and that is why we’re getting slow service, too. This APT was in place for a good while to get the bitcoin cover so smooth and realistic. One guess is that Twitter is no longer able to guarantee success in ousting Trump, so China is bullying its way in to “take care of things”.

The people who took the image are solid, and they (and others) say it looks like validated missiles that bunch has taken before. There was a drop-into-timeline shill explanation of it that looked like a cover “debunk” as a photographic effect – YEAH – I’ve seen that before, too – my money is strongly on it being a missile. However, even given that, the “why” is still where everybody wanted it – in Uncertaintyville.

    Just like Costco, they dont care if your state is claiming you should wear one, they demand across the board compliance. So emboldened by the government picking winners and losers they feel entitled to mistreat their customers.
    This is going to be bad. They will have a black shirt, not a brown shirt, checking your compliance as you enter, and only 1 entrance point into the stores. Same for Sam’s club.
    Well for those with ADA, they can ask but they cannot force or refuse. So how the hell do they think they can do this?
    I wonder if they will try to put a hand stamp on people or a sticker on their shirt? Will it be star shaped?

    1. How POTUS can support any large company is beyond me. This callous and fascistic comment says they dont give a rip about abyone, because they are corporate communists with control over main street.


      Walmart says shoppers must wear masks inside its stores starting Monday — the largest retailer to join a growing list of companies making face covering mandatory across the nation.

      Walmart and Sam’s Club — as well as Kroger — are joining Costco, Starbucks, Best Buy, Panera Bread and others in implementing a nationwide requirement for customers to wear masks inside their stores. Walmart said it’s creating a new job of “health ambassador,” who will be specially trained to “work with customers who show up at a store without a face covering to try and find a solution.”

      The National Retail Federation said it hoped Walmart’s move is “a tipping point in this public health debate” and urged all retailers to adopt a similar policy. Within hours, Kroger — the largest U.S. supermarket chain — said it will also require shoppers to wear masks starting July 22.

      “Shopping in a store is a privilege, not a right,” the retail trade group NRF said in a statement on Wednesday. “If a customer refuses to adhere to store policies, they are putting employees and other customers at undue risk.”

    Wear a MAGA hat or a MAGA shirt. When challenged for no mask, tell them that they really do not want to get sued for discriminating against Trump supporters. When they say that’s not what it is, go full Karen on them. When the manager gets there, tell him/her that you are exempt due to medical condition and the ADA exempts you from having to disclose that condition.

    Then tell him that you intended to spend X number of dollars but that you’ll leave if he/she would rather get an ADA lawsuit.
