Dear KAG: 20201001 Open Thread

It’s been a hectic few days. Shall we relax a little?

[14 seconds into the video] Enough of that.

Okay, here we are. RED OCTOBER.

Yes, patience is wearing more thin than usual. However, for many Americans, the strategy to wake the people slowly and methodically is working. It may not always seem that way, but it is.

In the meantime, we just keep plugging away.

For Pat:

_______________________________________________

As usual, this is the daily thread, the place to put all information that needs to be out there – Q drops, Q drop decodes, riot information, rumors about MAGA rallies starting up again, news flashes, Chy-na flu updates, fashionable mask photos, satire, memes, and of course cute animal videos.

In the meantime, the short and sweet version of “THE RULES” is here borrowed from Tuesday:

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.

Since it is almost the weekend, the reminders are in place to not swing from the chandeliers, wash your hands and face, and be nice to the liberals whether they deserve it or not. Making your bed, OTOH, is optional.

LUKE 10:1-12

1After this the Lord appointed seventy others, and sent them on ahead of him, two by two, into every town and place where he himself was about to come. 2And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest. 3Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs in the midst of wolves. 4Carry no purse, no bag, no sandals; and salute no one on the road. 5Whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace be to this house!’ 6And if a son of peace is there, your peace shall rest upon him; but if not, it shall return to you. 7And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages; do not go from house to house. 8Whenever you enter a town and they receive you, eat what is set before you; 9heal the sick in it and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.’ 10But whenever you enter a town and they do not receive you, go into its streets and say, 11`Even the dust of your town that clings to our feet, we wipe off against you; nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near.’ 12I tell you, it shall be more tolerable on that day for Sodom than for that town.

    1. Heheh…no, it’s not a vacation for our AG Barr.
      Although he probably enjoyed getting away from the DC Swamp for awhile.

      He was meeting with tribal leaders because of the historic Supreme Court’s McGirt decision, which happened a few months ago.

      That was the case where Gorsuch sided with the liberal judges in a 5-4 decision.

      But Gorsuch may have done us a favor there…with respect to the election.

      For Gorsuch, it was a ‘Promises Kept’ issue.
      Coming from the West…Gorsuch took a step back and looked at the history of the promises that the Federal Government has made in the past, to the Tribes.

      Those treaties and promises ‘predate’ even the statehood of many of our western states…including Oklahoma.

      Which means that Tribal Law and Federal Law are partners.
      And State Law does not apply.

      This article by SCOTUSblog explains it much better than I can:

      https://www.scotusblog.com/2020/07/opinion-analysis-justices-toe-hard-line-in-affirming-reservation-status-for-eastern-oklahoma/

      So in a way, you are right, Valerie, about our VSGPOTUS ‘partnering’ with the Indians and doing an end run around the Dems.

      Our AG Barr was there to work with the Tribes and strengthen the relationship between the DOJ and the Tribes.
      Barr is facilitating tribal law enforcement across the country with a Grant of $296 Million…$7.6M going to the Cherokee Nation, which is one of the biggest tribes.
      .

      .
      Even though the boundaries of Indian Reservations are still intact…there is a lot of land that has been sold to non-Indians over the years.

      When the tribes decided to give plots of land to tribal families, the families were given deeds to the land…to do with whatever they wanted.
      This included selling their land…which many of them did.

      ▶️ Tribal Law has no jurisdiction over non-Indians, though.

      The Cherokee Nation and other tribes, have their own vehicle tags:

      .

      .
      .
      And…Why are they wearing masks?

      Cherokee Nation is located in the area around Tulsa.

      And after the Tulsa Rally…when the state was invaded by Antifa/BLM people from around the country…there was a spike in WuFlu cases:

      1. YUP! Many American Indians supported Trump in 2016, IMO because they suspected Trump would give them a FAIR SHAKE – which I believe was a smart and well-rewarded move. GORSUCH is not only an expert in relevant law – he has a history of sticking to the words of law and their intended meaning – and that would include TREATIES! 😀

        I expect that Trump will get lots of support from OLD SCHOOL American Indians.

        We used to watch the show Longmire on Netflix that showed the complicated relationship between whites & a local Indian tribe, especially through the lens of law enforcement. That was taking place out in Montana & the racial tensions & long memories of injustice were a regular theme & pretty fascinating & eye-opening to us!

  1. This one reminds me of a family story I like to call “And the Wind Turned”..

    My grandfather was a young child in the early 1900’s visiting his grandparents on their old homestead farm in mid Michigan. They were awakened in the middle of the night by the roar of flames in the forest adjacent to the property. My GGGrandparents woke up my grandpa & they loaded up the wagon with most of their possessions & wet down a rug to lay over the top, hitched the horses, & waited to see what would happen. I think my grandpa, who was quite young had to stay in the wagon & his grandparents were pouring buckets of water on the roof of the house & perhaps of the barn too. The flames started licking along the wood fence on the perimeter of the property & these 2 retirement age MidWesterners prepared to drive away & restart w/ no insurance, the possessions in their wagon, & their lives…

    & then the wind turned & blew the fire back on itself & it eventually went out. I think my family’s journey would have been a tad different had they been burned out as elderly but hardy farm folk that day.

    This farmer is a hero. I hope he succeeded in saving his crops & moar!

    1. Looks to me like that crop had already been harvested.

      That Farmer was probably doing that to try and head off the fire from reaching his home and barns.

      He was running his discer to turn up the dirt and make a fire-break.
      I hope it worked!

      1. Yes! When my grandpa died he had very little left to his name financially, I think I got $100 as an inheritance as one of his 5 grandkids. He did leave us The Cottage owned jointly by my dad & his sister which we lived at in our early marriage. Apparently he almost signed the deed over to the Masons to guarantee himself a place in a retirement home but thankfully that never happened. He also left my dad & aunt part ownership in a one-room tar paper hunting shack in Michigan’s North Woods. My husband got put on the deed of that place early in our marriage (I’m not on it) & Hunting Season (bow opened Today!) is a big deal to our family & thankfully 3 of our 4 kids love it–we’re still tentatively working on Josiah in that arena. He loves being Up at the Shack for hunting but isn’t (yet) ready to become a hunter, if ever. His special needs complicate that whole adventure!

        My grandpa, his cousin, & a couple friends were the original owners of The Shack. They used to hunt on the land where the Shack now sits & would camp there during hunting season for years, begging the then owner farmer to sell them a small plot so they could put up buildings instead of tents & for years he refused. One year they invited the farmer into camp to share a meal. They had a large canvas tent w/ a wood burning stove that was the cook tent. Well a spark fell on the canvas & the whole tent went up in flames quicker than they could drop it to the ground.

        The farmer decided that was no way to live so he sold them one acre on the edge of his land. It was a long skinny rectangle w/ a 2 track running through it. The deer camp was large enough to actually build 2 shacks, though the guys across the street got the larger portion of the land & put up better facilities, though most of them live near by that Northern Michigan woodland while most of Our Shack hail from Metro Detroit.

        Back in the day, before the buildings, they dubbed the location “Piscopalian Valley” & there was a nice wooden plaque w/ that moniker burned into it that hung over the porch across the street. Unfortunately that sign was stolen a few years ago which is crazy because no one but our groups would even know of that name as is was Extremely Local. It was for Piss Go in the Pail! not a slam on Episcopalians.

        My grandpa’s cousin’s father who came to hunting camp until his death was known as “the Mayor of Piscopalian Valley” since he would make the rounds of the various hunting camps & the horse camp (there is “the blue horse trail” camp nearby & that trail crosses MI’s lower peninsula for horseback riding) & learn all the news & gossip of the area so he was Always up to speed on the hunt & beyond!

        A number of years ago my dad & his close friend & hunting buddy (who only got put on the deed of the Shack after 30+ years in camp) bought a nearby shack on the hill behind our Shack. That place was called “the Luzerne Hilton” by the prior owners, so it’s now “the Hilton” to our guys. My family mostly likes to stay in the Hilton & the old timers & my brother’s gang stay in the Shack. However, for the first time this year my 2 older sons will be bringing companions to deer camp so we’ll have Currens in the Shack & the Hilton. Next weekend will be a big deal hunt!

        I can’t wait for all the stories once they get back from deer camp!!! It’s a huge tradition to download many of their tales after the hunt, sometimes before they even catch a shower! Getting out into the woods, wood duty, camaraderie, & tales mostly of getting skunked on the hunt are just awesome. Most of my family Hate coming back down into the city after a couple days “living like rats” at the Shack!!!

        OK, I’m just hitting post w/out checking because it’s so long….sorry for any typos!

        As a final note I’m super thankful that both my daughter & daughter-in-law have embraced hunting!!! My generation Never had women in deer camp. My aunt claims to have been hunting but I don’t think it was in our hunting camps…She did host a bunch of girl descendants of the Shack guys a few years back when the Hilton was owned by our group over a Youth Hunt weekend. Unfortunately Only my daughter Clarissa of that group of cousins & friends has continued on as a hunter…& she loves to hunt!!! Good Times, even vicariously…

          1. I don’t know if anyone has ever Seen, let alone Shot, an 8 point in our camp. You can find such big bucks downstate on farmland but not in the dicier Northwoods, at least not outside of the places where they feed the deer for those fancy private hunting camps.

            Our guys have never done bear hunting though they occasionally run across bear sign & cat sign (hopefully lynx or bobcat & Not mountain lion). There is some talk of bounty predator hunting for coyotes, my husband heard all about it from the shack across the street, but that hasn’t happened yet for our group. My daughter wants to go for coyotes but my middle son doesn’t think he can stomach shooting anything that looks like a dog…

        A couple years back I hit the resale store in the town near my parents’ Cottage for the first time ever & discovered this gem on CD, which I gave to my girls!

        my husband sent the link to his hunting buddy who commented on the “hillbilly rocker” who appears around 2 minutes in. He’s like a seeming cousin of Ted Nugent (not literally) who used to hunt those beautiful Michigan Northwoods, where I believe that video was filmed…

        If you do watch the video All the way through there’s a little treat at the end! So this song gets busted out every deer season, at least by me, for fun. Neither of our shacks look Anything as nice as that deer camp–those chicks have the posh pad!

      1. Amen! I’m so thankful that they didn’t get burned out. I hope that farmer & his property are OK too…

        My grandpa was born & lived in Detroit his whole life until retirement following the race riots & moving permanently Up North to the then finally winterized Cottage. His own dad was raised on that farm but went to work in Michigan’s North Woods in the lumber industry as a young adolescent, like age 12 or 13. He found favor w/ the boss when he stood up for & defended the bosses “city boy” son who was in camp w/ the lumber jacks to learn the business. Eventually my Ggrandfather became the foreman & when the woods work was done the boss asked him to manage his lumberyard in Detroit, which is how my grandpa was born there. Grandpa’s oldest sibling was born in some community (that I’m not sure still exists) called Sawyerville.

        It must have been a pretty intense “adventure” for a city kid to experience that fire nearly burning out his grandparents on their farm.

        As a side note my grandpa ran his own gas station at Junction & Toledo in Detroit but never owned the building. He tried to convince his landlord to sell him the building numerous times but he wouldn’t budge. When the race riots destroyed segments of Detroit & my grandpa decided to retire (they were driving w/ my aunt & her family on a cross country adventure to Alaska) he had an offer to buy his gas station business but since the building was a rental the deal fell through. I think Grandpa just liquidated his assets & A Lot of his tools are still in the garage at The Cottage along with his sign “Stoddard’s Superior Service”.

        Tragically I believe that gas station has remained empty ever since the late 60’s as testament to the demise of much of what was good in Detroit back in the day.

        My dad once said of a “vulcanizing” machine that grandpa had at his gas station that it should have been put in a museum for it practically kept Detroit on wheels during WWII when regular people couldn’t get tires so grandpa’s ability to patch worn tires kept a lot of people in functioning transportation!

  3. OCTOBER – NOVEMBER – TIME TO REMEMBER

    Remember what they did in 2018!!! With the help and blessing of the Media!

    Here is a LIST:

    THAT was projection – making it a list of their own mental state and character traits.

    The left goes
    – from name-calling
    – to bullying/intimidation
    – to persecution (getting you fired/lawsuits)
    – to violence and murder without any shame or conscience.

    REMEMBER – even when the leftists are in power – they are still nasty, maligning, spiteful, violent SOBs!!!

    Remember how Holder sued businesses that did not hire illegals/non-citizens?

    Remember how Holder sued states for requiring Voter Photo-IDs?

    Remember how leftist agitators and protestors raise heck everywhere because of poor little illegals, but ignore homeless veterans and inner city crime??

    REMEMBER OUR POLICE being shot and discredited over and over?

    Remember how leftists scream about open borders – but ignore illegals crime, drugs, awful driving accidents???

    Remember how leftists give sanctuary, benefits, housing, medical care, free college tuition to illegals and their kids -but poor working families – no dice????

    Remember how Democrats voted against repealing Unaffordable Obamacare, tax reductions, and other helpful changes for middle class, unemployed and seniors?????

    Remember how the Democrats showed their hineys during President Trump’s State of the Union addresses and would not even stand for new manufacturing jobs and record low black unemployment and Pelosi tore up the President’s speech??????????

    Remember how the Democrats concocted the PP Dossier and the Russian Collusion garbage and the Mueller (Democrat) team to try to remove, impeach our President?

    Remember the attempted smears and attacks on Brett Kavanaugh and his family?

    Remember Democrat supported Antifa and BLM destroying businesses and assaulting police across the USA in 2020?

    COME NOVEMBER 3 – WE WILL REMEMBER!!!!

    Remember, remember, on the 3rd of November,
    Democrat treason and plot!
    There no reason why Democrat treason,

        Where did the document come from?

        It’s described in a similar way (russian analysis, not the original document) as the mysterious Amanda Renteria document that appeared sometime in 2016. Corney remembers that document. He based his decision to bypass the DOJ in closing MYE on the appearance of the document.

        Again, what is the origin of these documents?

        Are they from Dutch intel? Is this Ratcliffe declas a segway into a full exploration of the DNC hack?

        Dutch intel notified US intel ( Adm.Rogers, Clapper) about Cozey Bear (Dukes) hacking into the DNC in 2015. They were watching the Russians hack in realtime. Dutch intel watched Russians hack in real-time for 2.5 years, starting in Summer 2014. The Dutch even hacked the security camera outside the Russian computer lab. Did the Dutch witness the “Fancy Bear” hack/Crowd strike mitigation in realtime?

        Why were Dutch “methods” leaked in 2017, blowing the entire Dutch operation? Is this leak under investigation?

        They leaked Carter Page’s russian spy busting cover, and ****ed Dutch allies’ amazing counterintel operation. Treasonous b******s.

      1. I don’t know… but note Sen Mjldr did NOT file for cloture himself… it may be some deal between the two whereby Mitch ALLOWS it to get to the floor, vote for cloture fails, but there’s a reduction in Stimulus bill in the House. Color me dumb, just trying to read my cloudy crystal ball on this. It may simply be that once in a while, “under the motion of order” … Mitch has to allow something of Chuck’s to the floor … I suspect it to FAIL, whatever it is with regard to healthcare comin’ from the DIMs… (fingers crossed)

    1. Slow Joe was certainly wired up. Posts show a wire under his coat on the right side, the gizmo on his left sleeve, and he reached for his ear at least once.

      Commonly Slow Joe was “staring” at nothing in particular…as if, intent on listening to voices in his ear canal. 🙂

      Once again, cheating didn’t help Slow Joe or his D-Rat minders.

            1. My son uses an FM transmitter/receiver which relays signals to his hearing aids. The receiver can be worn under clothing, and thus be invisible. Kind of a micro-area-network. The receiver itself then can receive signals from a microphone or transmitter up to 30-40 meters away, possibly farther (and I’m sure gubmint-types have access to far better kit)…

              The bit in the ear can be like a CIC (completely in [ear] canal) hearing aid, which is all but invisible.
              I don’t think the discussion about a wire is even necessary, as it can be done invisibly. But as Bombard’s Body Language showed, it’s obvious some times that Bi-DONE is getting input from three (or more) directions at once…

    1) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin are expected to talk again today in a last ditch effort to secure a universal coronavirus deal. Pelosi gave them more time to work out a deal. about the math.

    1h
    2) But if there’s no agreement, the House will likely vote today on the revamped $2.2 trillion package Democrats rolled out Monday.

    Democrats will dare Republicans to vote nay on this.

    1h
    3) The counter-offer made by the administration is in the the $1.5 trillion range and includes about $20 billion for airlines. There would also be an extra $400 a week for the unemployed.

    But it is unclear if Senate Republicans could handle such a measure.

    4) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) dismissed that idea yesterday, calling it “outlandish.”

    But Pelosi can’t go much lower and not lose lots of Democrats.

    1h

    5) Finding the center of gravity on this where there is the right cocktail of Democrats and Republicans who support it is a challenge. As we ALWAYS say on Capitol Hill, it’s about the math.

    1h
    6) If there’s going to be a deal, it has to come this week. Otherwise, Pelosi will put her bill on the floor and head into the election, having approved two coronavirus measures since May – neither of which Republicans could stomach.

      Joe Biden HAD TO BE HELPED DOWN THE TRAIN STEPS BY HIS WIFE when he made his “whistle stop” trip to Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio yesterday.

      http://www.youtube.com/ has a video clip from KDKA -TV, Pittsburgh, by a reporter from the station who covered the Biden train trip and the stops he made. I watched the clip.
      Biden was actually traveling by a COMBINATION of TRAIN and BUS from the very few stops he made.
      The reporter interviewed Biden while they were traveling on the train.
      Biden sounded tired. He kept repeating the same “trash Trump” cr@p over and over.
      Biden ALSO looked ill to me. Near-ashen facial color.

      If his handlers did put “The Lid” on Biden today, I can morally guaran-damn-tee you that it’s because Biden apparently BARELY MADE IT THROUGH this “whistle stop” / bus train trip of yesterday.

        However — when my late husband was very old and very ill, I made it my business to make sure that he not only got the best care possible — but that he also had a calm and quiet life so he could enjoy his remaining time on this planet.
        It is my opinion that Joe Biden is, at minimum, a frail and health-compromised person, even IF he is not suffering from dementia / cognitive decline issues. This situation ALONE rules him out as someone who could serve as President.
        I still maintain that Joe Biden’s handlers, his wife, AND his children HUNTER and ASHLEY, are ALL aiding and abetting elder abuse of Ole Joe.

    The New York Times’ investigation of President Trump says the president used big tax losses in some years to avoid paying taxes in others, that he invested some of his profits into money-losing businesses, and that Mr. Trump paid his daughter as “a way to transfer assets to his children.”

    In addition, it says that Mr. Trump’s businesses are propped up by foreign revenue and that Mr. Trump “has written off as business expenses costs — including fuel and meals — associated with his aircraft, used to shuttle him among his various homes and properties.”

    The Times ought to know — because the New York Times Company and the Ochs-Sulzberger family that control it have done the same things.

    Trump Declares National Emergency Backing Domestic Mining of rare earth minerals critical to tech industry and defence electronics

    Will Reduce Reliance on #China for Critical Minerals

    Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order to such effect.
    .

    .
    Text of two more tweets in this thread:

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order that seeks to ramp up domestic production of critical minerals such as rare earth elements and support mining jobs in the United States, in a bid to reduce the nation’s reliance on Beijing.

    China is currently the top global producer of the specialized minerals that are used to build electronics, military weapons, and other high-tech equipment. Last year, 80 percent of rare earths imported by the United States came directly from China.

    …………….End text.

    As I recall…the Dems heaped so many regulations on our mining operations here in the US, that they couldn’t compete with the prices of China’s minerals.

    Looks like our VSG has figured out a work-around.

    I’m thinking that we probably need those minerals for our Space Force.

    Q !!Hs1Jq13jV6 ID: 376386 No.10864489 📁
    Sep 30 2020 22:52:42 (EST) NEW

    [NYT Article on Bergoglio’s temper tantrum]

    When does a Church become a playground?
    When does a Church become a business?
    When does a Church become political?
    When does a Church become corrupt?
    When does a Church become willfully blind?
    When does a Church become controlled?
    Q

    I believe the answer is when the men within Her forget that pride is the most powerful sin, and they become worldly and ignore that the mission of the Church is the salvation of souls.

    It’s really that simple. The men of the Church have tried to make the Church relevant to the world, but the reality is since the Church is NOT of this world, ultimately, being worldly is not Christ-like.

    It’s about being worldly and compromising with those from the outside for material gain.

    There’s a reason the clergy used to take the oath against modernism. And…maybe it’s time to bring that back.

    https://www.lifesitenews.com/blogs/questions-for-archbishop-vigano-concerning-the-oath-against-modernism-and-its-abrogation

    “In light of this close connection between the Land O’Lakes statement and the abandonment of the Oath Against Modernism, do you have any knowledge about whether or not Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C. – the organizer of the Land O’Lakes statement – might have known that this oath would soon be dropped, since he prepared that statement for several months before the Land O’Lakes meeting?

    “But, more importantly: were you yourself, in 1967, aware that this oath – which had been taken by all the clergymen of the Catholic Church since 1910, when Pope St. Pius X had issued it – was then abandoned?

    “What was the original intention of Pope St. Pius X with this oath, and what would you say were the consequences of the abolition of that oath?

    “Are you aware that the German professors at Catholic departments of German universities apparently did not need to swear the Oath Against Modernism – and this since 1910 – and thus they were the only ones in the world exempt from this oath? What would you say were the reasons why Pope St. Pius X gave this permission, and what would you say were the consequences of this exemption? We need to note here of course that at that time, most theologians at the universities would have been priests, and thus they had to take that oath as clergymen. Do you know more about this matter? Cardinal Walter Brandmüller once pointed out the grave effects of this exemption for German theology.”

    “Moreover, according to my knowledge, all bishops who participated at the Second Vatican Council had taken the Oath Against Modernism. Would you say that those who actively and willfully participated in the changing of the Church’s doctrine and attitude (toward more ecumenism, toward more collegiality and equality, against an attitude of condemnation of errors, against any “triumphalism,” for religious liberty, and so on) actually perjured themselves, thus breaking an oath they once had solemnly sworn?

    “Let us remember here that those priests who refused to swear that oath in 1910 were punished, for example by disallowing them to work in the pastoral care or by depriving them of the sacraments. That shows how much importance Pope Pius X attributed to this oath and to the danger of Modernism.”

    It’s about being worldly and compromising with those from the outside for material gain.

    2. I believe a lot of the so-called “higher criticism” of theology came out of Germany. If I can recall this stuff from my seminary days that “higher” form of textual criticism seemed almost to be atheistic in nature. I don’t have any type of Catholic background & don’t know if those German textual critics were connected to Catholicism or not, but that “modernism” may have been part what was “informing” that style of thinking.

      If I can recall, & this is fuzzy memory from 3 decades ago, this “higher criticism” was more “scientific” in nature. Kind of like they could use so-called objective rules of science to determine the nature of scripture. It seems like it sought to elevate the reasoning of men above the “divine authority” of the original texts of scripture…

      Like

      1. A cursory glance tells me it’s a great site, and I agree with their big picture thinking and MANY details.

        My only two quibbles are these:

        (1) the stuff about products for COVID appearing in 2019 or earlier are potentially disinformation by the other side. The other side is EXTREMELY sophisticated in producing fake evidence to discredit people as “conspiracy theorists”. These things are very likely a phenomenon of “database management retro-date-labeling inconsistencies” – meaning they were simply labeled later, and the labels were “back-applied”. People are not generally meticulous about forensics. I’m doing “9/11 investigation” right now, and it is HARD and the few people who are really right about it are overwhelmed by both the other side AND by disinformation-manipulated people in the 9/11 truth community. Same thing here. We need honest forensics investigators on our side who work hard to EXONERATE the other side by deep investigation of evidence. Subservience to TRUTH is subservience to GOD. In God I Trust – In Truth I Trust.

        (2) we have to be careful about using motive to discredit other motive in the same criminal individuals, or things that those individuals support. An example of this is distrusting vaccines because of *who* in particular is behind them. Motive and possible motive provide suspicion and grounds for suspicion, but it is not proof in and of itself. A “Gates vaccine” and a “Trump vaccine” and even a “coronavirus vaccine” are not necessarily bad things. Requiring everybody to take one might be, but just because Gates believes things and wants things and even has terrible, self-centered motives for those things does NOT mean they are bad things. I actually favor several vaccines which are both Trump vaccines AND Gates vaccines because they are very likely to SAVE LIVES in the elderly and vulnerable populations, and are likely to be or are proven to be low-risk options. I don’t care if Fauci supports or does not support – the science says these vaccines are likely to be a preferred option for people at high risk of dying from coronaviruses. Indeed, it is extremely likely for the same reason that COVID-19 testing is crap because of cross-talk with other coronaviruses, that a COVID-19 vaccine will have cross-virus benefit for other coronaviruses in vulnerable and elderly patients. TL;DR – science is real, and so is the ignorance of science, but together, they say something, and that something is that we know criminally pushed vaccines will be a good thing for some people, and those criminally pushed vaccines are also “saintly pushed” vaccines – they’re the same vaccines.

        OK, that’s more than I wanted to say, but you can see – I differ with them on NUANCE – we need to be CLEAR.

        Trump is very smart on everything he has done with COVID-19. EVERYTHING. Genius.

        1. Appreciate this analysis and praise your observations – I am not a scientist – so I cannot look at these things through a scientific lens – and yet – I cannot help but, think – this is 9/11 all over again – odd how you equated it to 9/11 truth.

          From what I have learned about vaccine ingredients – I hesitate to even consider taking a vaccine – I do not take drugs, either – I am a naturalist – so again, the vaccine arguments are hard for me to discern – I understand the high-risk people and their needs – but, just recently, I found myself conversing with a young person who saw herself as high-risk – and I was not buying her premise – compromised immune system – there are ways to boost the immune system – proven ways.

          Back to you – I appreciate your ability to look at this problem from both sides – because I hear the name – Gates – and all of a sudden – I am not listening – you know – same goes for Fauci.

          I find it difficult to pull this particular information apart – because I know they have planned for these scenarios for decades – it is what they do – we are surprised – but, they are just following a plan – and yet – this control function for them is a must – and the minute I read the word ‘control’ – I see a STOP SIGN.

          My last point has to do with Science – we know that science proves the existence or non-existence of something – or it should – now we have ‘fake’ science – that proves a political agenda – and that is so frustrating!

          Sooo…I need a scientist – a real scientist – to break this down for me – and I thank you, kindly, for doing so.

          1. duchess01,

            I am going to stick my oar in here.

            From what I have seen, you need to actually read the papers.
            HOW an experiment is set-up can make all the difference in the world.

            For example.
            Study #1. HCQ used for elderly who already are hospitalized.

            vs

            Study #2 HCQ PLUS ZINC used for elderly who have just come own with symptoms.

            Study #2 will have much better results. When you drill down into the details you find:
            #1. The elderly, especially those in care facilities are very short on needed zinc.
            #2. HCQ works by moving zinc from the blood stream into the cells.
            #3. Zinc (and selenium) once in the cells PREVENT REPLICATION of viable virus.

            THEREFORE just giving HCQ to elderly patients who are zinc deficient and are ALREADY over whelmed by a vast number of virus, will have very little effect.

            ….

            I have seen paper after paper DESIGNED with a specific predetermined outcome in mind. Usually these are negative results for natural remedies so people can be told “Science Shows XXX has no real effect on YYY.”

              4. Oh, you are so funny, Val! Truth is – your children will keep you young long into your Golden Years – that is God’s Blessing!!!

                One cannot fool anyone here – as a child I watched old movies and musicals on TV Saturday afternoons – does not mean I was even alive when they were made – just means I liked them.

                Having a young buck for a husband is a blessing unless you are not into young bucks – lol – ask Patty – her husband is a Stud – she will not let any Fillies near him – lol

                I do not see age – PR told us – that is how we know she is older and wiser – See? So how would we know you were old AND wiser – when we know you are WISER just from experience?

              5. I think I was one of those people who was born older, perhaps that partially comes from being a firstborn or from having a level-headed logical mindset (at least I like to think that I have one 😉 ). We do like to laugh in our family so that helps us maintain a bit of youthfulness. Age is just a number!

              6. Agree – First Born – is the Leader of the children – responsible for all that comes – first to fail – first to succeed.

                Born older? Dunno – just think some mature faster than others – and some never do mature – lol – when I was 12 – my childhood ended – I had to learn how to laugh – too serious – I was told – most of my friends were comics – Go figure!!!

              7. Sorry about childhood ending at 12–hope it wasn’t something too traumatic. Laughter is God’s gift–& He gave us a bubbling fountain in Josiah. Humor has helped us cope with the hardship 😉

          2. On the natural remedies front I’ve been wondering lately if all the push for sunscreen is more a way to inhibit Vitamen D production & reduce our immune function. We never did much w/ sunscreen when I was a kid & I don’t remember it being that big of a deal. In the Summer I’d get a sunburn or two & then would mostly tan afterward, at least for the degree I was outside…just a thought…

            1. Agree with you there, Val! Not big on that sunscreen, either – better to monitor time spent in the sun if one is susceptible to overexposure – got a bad sunburn as a child – so learned the hard way – treatment after was all natural – we did not have money for over-the-counter remedies – so mom did her best to relieve – and she called on God to help, too.

              1. Good plan – what I do – stay in when sun is hottest – of course – the beach is farther away now – and that helps in a weird way – it has been replaced by a backyard that remains like an oven long into November!!!

              2. Ugh, I hate being “stinkin’ hot” & ironically my husband hates being cold. Our first year of marriage when we were living in my parents’ Cottage in Northern Michigan the outdoor thermometer read -20 (or perhaps -40) & he went out & wrote “darn cold” on the thermometer & I think you can still make out those faded letters if you look closely.

              3. LOL – What a pair!!! You know – people complain in the summer – it is too hot – then, when winter comes – it is too cold – that is why God created Spring and Fall – to help us ease into the next season – I think – not too hot – not too cold – these are my favorite seasons – God created a season for everyone – I believe – So wise is He!!!

              4. Amen. I love Fall for the cooling temps, the leaves changing, the smell, football, hunting! Actually, I honestly love all 4 seasons. But fall in OK was the worst, the leaves were brown then on the ground–ugh. Depending on the weather we can have glorious color in MI for weeks!

              5. God Blessed me with (3) Wonderful Windows through which I can observe the changing seasons – I love how they gravitate, too – one to the other – a blessing I do not take for granted.

                We must bloom where we are planted – imho – moving is an adjustment – one way or another – good or bad – depending upon how you look at it.

                I look at pictures of various places in America – to see what they see – the rally threads are blessings, too – Thanks, DP – we learn so much about places to which we have never been. God is Great in His Blessings!!! – Really – He is!!!

              6. Yes. I love this land & trying to see things with Trumpian eyes has made me love it even more, including regions that aren’t to my personal weather taste. There is Always beauty to be found if we only have eyes to see!!!

    1. LOL – but it was wonderful to see how much self-control our President has.

      We see that every single News Conference.

      They can’t make him do/say what he does not want to do/say.

    1. Going to church before work is very rewarding. When I lived in the Iona monastery we attendet church and then did our work. I loved it so much when I came back to my home church wanted to introduce the practice as Elder. The Pastor turned it down. Protestant churches are missing much and I admirer that Catholic Priests are not that lazy and offer daily morning worship and also at noon.
      When I grew up the church was an integral part of a Christians life and worship was offered 4 times a day 7 days a week. I feel very pressed and am grateful that I experienced how the Christian life was not just Sunday and Wednesday evening but a daily part of life. Calvin always envisioned family joined Monastery life at home in every family.

      1. singing, long ago and far away I discovered that Catholic churches in the neighborhood where I worked were open during the day.
        I am Protestant, but I would walk to the closest, open, Catholic church during my lunch hour.
        You are right.
        Makes a huge difference.
