Dear KAG: 20200805 Open Thread

Just in case people here haven’t seen multiple angles of this:

Hmmm…. Intrigue…. This one seems appropriate.

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 so we can all get our immune systems in shape to stop the Wuhan Flu thing sooner rather than later.

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. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there.

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 the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapter 31, verses 10-13

Hear the word of the Lord, O ye nations, and declare it in the islands that are afar off, and say: He that scattered Israel will gather him: and he will keep him as the shepherd doth his flock.

[11] For the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and delivered him out of the hand of one that was mightier than he. [12] And they shall come, and shall give praise in mount Sion: and they shall flow together to the good things of the Lord, for the corn, and wine, and oil, and the increase of cattle and herds, and their soul shall be as a watered garden, and they shall be hungry no more. [13] Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, the young men and old men together: and I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them, and make them joyful after their sorrow. 

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.

Looks like it’s closing in on time with all the winning going on.

      1. Remember how Reagan fired all the air traffic controllers….(made one of our pilot friends an off-the-wall crazy Liberal) …unfortunately, the teachers are under the school boards that appear to be infiltrated with as many Communists as the classroom.
        But, the “power of the phone and pen” (ie federal funding) works just as well for Trump as it did for Obama.
        At this point, I’m very doubtful I would trust a Public school teacher with my children’s education. Did you see the young teacher who couldn’t answer when America was discovered and freely admitted she did not use the approved curriculum but rather her (Communist, liberal ) “own version”.

  2. dropping this here before I go back and see what I missed…
    back from my weekly walmart banana run. I wore a mask today (we started brewing the pinot noir a few days ago and the fermentation always triggers my sinuses for the first few days. so rather than endure the looks and stares of the Karens, i wore a mask.)
    but I wasn’t satisfied, just looking like a sheep…so occasionally as I walked up and down the aisles, I made a baa-baa sound. if anyone looked at me, I looked around quickly and asked–did you hear it TOO???
    so, yeah, I was giggling under my mask and having a good time…till i got to the checkout.
    now the draconian measures walmart was taking before are somewhat gone. they don’t have someone else cleaning every shopping cart–but they have the wipes available like they did pre covid.
    and they used to have only every OTHER checkout open–to allow adequate spacing–today they had the 3 checkouts open in the center and it was crowded-beginning of the month stuff.
    but dang the senior citizens were PISSED today. i asked the woman in front of me why–they got us used to the self checkouts and now they won’t accept cash–gotta used a damn card, she said. the older guy in the next line said, they claim it’s the coin shortage–but (he was pointing at the bank inside the walmart) there’s a bank RIGHT THERE! he was very mad and after he checked out…he stormed to the customer service desk and YELLED about it to the manager.

        she said that would make her drawer off, and suggested I donate the 60 some cents to Children’s Miracle Network. Awesome, I said let’s do that.
        this week I tried to do that and it wouldn’t go thru the register. she called over a manager and explained what we were trying to do. she said, oh they stopped that.
        now why would they stop that? it eliminates the exact change problem.

    Here’s the ** interesting ** part:
    In addition to: mandatory CCP Virus testing for ALL students / ALL students, faculty, and staff wearing masks at ALL times / revised class schedules to accommodate reduced in-person class sizes / social distancing everywhere —

  5. FACT checkers…ha!
    FTA
    Fact-checking organizations have grappled internally with the obvious but usually unspoken challenge in all such efforts: It is unrealistic to expect that any appointed group of fact-checkers has true expertise on all of the topics they litigate. Yet they do so every day.

    Keeping this in mind, the biggest inherent flaw with efforts to fact-check information may lie in the qualifications, bias, and conflicts of interest among the ranks of the fact-checkers themselves. One example is the fact-checking nonprofit First Draft, started by Google at the beginning of the 2016 election cycle. Google is owned by Alphabet, Inc. Alphabet executives and employees comprise a politically active group that ranks among the largest political donors to Democrats in the country. During the 2016 campaign, Alphabet was led by an ardent Hillary Clinton supporter and campaign volunteer, executive chairman Eric Schmidt.

    First Draft is also supported by an array of liberal companies and nonprofits, including the Ford Foundation and George Soros’ Open Society Foundations. First Draft tends to fact-check topics in a vein that’s consistent with its major donors’ opinions and interests.

    18 of the 20 members of Facebook’s oversight board members have ties to Soros’ Open Society Foundations, which have spent billions of dollars on global initiatives aggressively advocating for the progressive side on topics ranging from immigration policy and climate to abortion, gender, and racial policies.

  6. From Rush’s show yesterday–

    “Now Andrew Cuomo is worried that people aren’t gonna be coming back to New York, that businesses aren’t gonna be coming back, you know why? Because people have figured out they don’t have to be in New York to work in New York, and they don’t have to be in New York and pay exorbitant real estate prices to work in New York, they don’t have to be there. He’s very worried that the tax base is lost.”

    This is spot on. Mid-July I was flying to Washington D.C. from Houston, and my seatmate (one seat between us & wearing masks) told me she was going to D.C. to put her apartment stuff in storage and prepare her work office for workers to come get their stuff as all were remotely working. She was remotely working in Houston and returning there to work remotely indefinitely. I did not ask what her job was and she didn’t volunteer.

    I am sure that there are thousands doing this and with the “peaceful demonstrations” in city centers with the murals painted and statures gone, workers will not be returning either. The cities tout their “cultural” offerings with museums, theaters, and restaurants. The most leftist liberal media headquarters are in these big cities. These “cultural” meccas also have the largest sidewalk community (homeless) populations.

    My experience has been that people working in these fields tend to be outspoken liberals and SJWs, and the restaurants are magnets for illegal alien workers (read Anthony Bourdain’s books). I am still incensed at VP Pence’s treatment by the actors in the play Hamilton. I refuse to watch it even if free on TV.

        20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

        21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

        22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

        23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

        24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

        25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

        26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

        27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

        28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

Great art is still out there, but it is not in the sight or means of the vast majority of Americans who don’t see its worth because they’ve never been exposed. It’s not just the ephemeral, but the historic record.

      Look at the date of the closing of the mint. This announcement was for public tours but when banks tried to order coins – they have been told the mint is closed.
      View of new 2020 $1 coins being minted:
      They don’t look like anything we’ve seen before. These coins started in 2018 … could this be in preparation for NESARA?
      Think about this – paper money is easy to reprint, but coinage has to be minted… could it be that the mint was closed to re-tool and prepare to mint new coinage? Could it be that coins have been short due to the need for the metal to re-produce coinage?

    FTA

    …”Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said on Wednesday that Democrats “continue to push their $3 trillion-dollar wish-list that even their own Democratic colleagues brushed off as absurd.”

    According to Meadows, the concessions made by the White House are “far more substantial” than those made by Democrats.

    * * *

    In classic Trump Administration form, President Trump and his aides are trying to pressure Democrats into caving and supporting the White House’s trillion-dollar stimulus plan that would restore the additional $600 weekly unemployment benefit, by seeking to convince the leadership that they will try to cut them out of the deal entirely.

    Yesterday afternoon, Politico reported that team Trump was looking into using an executive order to re-appropriate money already appropriated by Congress and instead redirect it toward restoring the federal money for the unemployed, as well as potentially restoring the federal moratorium on evictions. Last night, Trump told reporters that yes, all of this was true – except that the team was also considering a suspension of payroll taxes, something the president has long insisted upon, despite the fact that there’s almost no support for the proposal in Congress.

    Prodded about all of this on Fox & Friends Wednesday morning, Trump again insisted that for all the help he was getting from the Democrats, he “may do it myself.”

    “Well, I may do it myself,” Trump said in an interview with Fox & Friends on Wednesday. “I have the right to suspend it, and I may do it myself – I have the absolute right to suspend the payroll.”

    And now, with the possibility of an executive order eliciting the typical “he can’t do that!” reaction from the mainstream press, Fox Business correspondent Charlie Gasparino – who we suddenly need to pay attention to again following his reports on TikTok last Friday – has just tweeted that not only is Trump 100% going for it with the executive order strategy (he’s seriously considering an executive order to extend the stimulus bill, but without any involvement from Congress), the president also thinks he can get Microsoft and TikTok to pay the US government as part of a deal.”

          On March 23, the Nevada State Board of Pharmacy requested an emergency regulation from Governor Steve Sisolak to limit the prescribing of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for use treating and preventing COVID-19. The emergency regulation was signed by Governor Sisolak later that day, going into effect immediately.

          On July 21, the Nevada Board of Pharmacy noted that the emergency regulation had expired and was no longer in effect.

          What this means for people with lupus
          With the expiration of the emergency regulation, Nevada does not currently have any policies regarding the prescribing or dispensing of chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine.

          1. Appreciate the information.

            Dailyt email to idiot Sisolak hammers on making HCQ available for Covid treatment (in and out patient) and as a preventive. Won’t do any good, but I do email the asshoe daily.

            The Lupus folks are full of shit. There is no shortage of HCQ. Simply don’t buy it.

            HCQ is easily available. IF not through regular chanels, such as pharmacies ordering then obvious fixes are available.
            – NV FEMA cazar call FEMA and ask for help.
            – Asshoe Sisolak call either VP Pence or President Trump with a HCQ request. It would be filled, immediately.
            – IF NV Fema or shithead Sisolak didn’r get the HCQ needed, all they have to do is call the YSM, Wacky Jacky or Masto. PRESTO, HCQ would be made available quickly.

            Since MARCH, the Sisolak HCQ hoarding has been wholly ignorant, purely driven by politics.

            1. I never did and don’t buy the Lupus/RA fears or claims of shortages of HCQ.

              My point is that the Lupus Foundation of America says that since 21 Jul, there are no restrictions on HCQ from the asshoe Gov. So, Nevada doctors should be able to script HCQ and Nevada pharmacies issue HCQ for CHICOM-19 without Nevada state government intervention.

              1. Yes. Lupus and asshoe Sisloak full of it.

                LAst I heard, HCQ was ok in NV for in patient use only.

                Out patients have to wait until they are on their death bed, admitted to a hospital to get HCQ.

                We both know, HCQ is most effective as a preventive or within the first 1-6 days of Covid.

                Sisolak continues to act as if he hates Nevadans.

    Blackstone to acquire http://Ancestry.com for $4.7 billion https://reut.rs/3gwwPRp
    4:15 PM · Aug 5, 2020

    FTA:

    (Reuters) – Blackstone Group Inc (BX.N) said on Wednesday it agreed to acquire genealogy provider Ancestry.com Inc from private equity rivals for $4.7 billion, including debt, placing a big bet on family-tree chasing as well as personalized medicine.

    Ancestry.com is the world’s largest provider of DNA services, allowing customers to trace their genealogy and identify genetic health risks with tests sent to their home.

    Blackstone is hoping that more consumers staying at home amid the COVID-19 pandemic will turn to Ancestry.com for its services….

    The deal is Blackstone’s first acquisition out of Blackstone Capital Partners VIII, the largest-ever private equity fund that raised $26 billion from investors last year.

    Ancestry.com has more than 3 million paying customers in about 30 countries, and earns more than $1 billion in annual revenue. Launched in 1996 as a family history website, it harnessed advances in DNA testing and mobile phone apps in the following two decades to expand its offerings.

    Blackstone is buying Ancestry.com from private equity firms Silver Lake, Spectrum Equity and Permira. Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC, another Ancestry.com investor, said it will continue to maintain a significant minority stake in the company.

    The acquisition’s price tag represents a significant jump to Ancestry.com’s valuation from four years ago, when Silver Lake and GIC invested in the Lehi, Utah-based company at a $2.6 billion valuation.

      1. FamilySearch.org is a Mormon site. The Mormon Church provides free Ancestry memberships for its church members, but not sure of an affiliation beyond that.

        For some reason tracing families is very important to the Mormons. I only know this because I did a lot of geneology work for a family member who converted to Mormonism.

    1. This is a country wide problem as many poll workers are retired persons over 60. Essentially we are going to have a lot of new poll workers this election. Room for trouble likely abounds. Democrat poll workers will likely also need additional training on how to cheat and not get caught.

  18. Vatican Drops God to Reach Wider Audience

    VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) – The Vatican omitted “God” from a 4,000-word document on the Wuhan virus pandemic in order to reach “the widest possible audience,” Church officials claimed in a statement published Thursday.

    “We want to enter human situations, reading them in the light of faith and in a way that speaks to the widest possible audience — to believers and non-believers, to all men and women ‘of goodwill,'” Pontifical Academy for Life spokesman Fabrizio Mastrofini argued.

    Pres Trump signed the Great American Outdoors Act this morning, the largest-ever bipartisan investment into our national parks & public lands. He called it the “Biggest bill ever passed by far”. Is this in direct correlation with the Act of 1871 & our sovereignty being restored?

    Hey @tedwheeler, I’m a little confused. Are Antifa blocking the streets to vehicle traffic authorized to do traffic stops and then attack vehicles?

    Was this an illegal attempt at a traffic stop or not?…

    An ANTIFA on a motorcycle cut into a pk-up truck as ANTIFA started to pound on the slowed down truck. The driver STOMPED ON IT and drove off WITH THE BIKE attached to his front bumper.

    ANTIFA followed the guy home and he had to stand them off with a gun.

    Michelle Obama Says She’s Suffering From “Low-Grade Depression” – Blames President Trump
    https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2020/08/michelle-obama-says-suffering-low-grade-depression-blames-president-trump/

    From the article:
    __________

    Obama said she is suffering “low-grade depression” because of quarantine, ‘racial strife’ and of course the “hypocrisy” of the Trump Admin.

    I’m waking up in the middle of the night because I’m worrying about something or there’s a heaviness,” she said.

    “I try to make sure I get a workout in, although there have been periods throughout this quarantine, where I just have felt too low,” she added.

    Obama said she has been going through “those emotional highs and lows that I think everybody feels, where you just don’t feel yourself.”

    “These are not, they are not fulfilling times, spiritually,” she said. “I know that I am dealing with some form of low-grade depression.

    “Not just because of the quarantine, but because of the racial strife, and just seeing this administration, watching the hypocrisy of it, day in and day out, is dispiriting.”

    Michelle Obama said it is “exhausting” to be “waking up to yet another story of a black man or a black person somehow being dehumanized, or hurt, or killed, or falsely accused of something.”

    “And it has led to a weight that I haven’t felt in my life, in a while,” she said.

    She also praised the violent rioters destroying cities.
