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. Now it appears this “bi-partisan” Debate Committee is going to have “new rules” for the next “debate” between POTUS and Ole Joe — and one the “new rules” is that the “moderator” can CUT OFF POTUS’ microphone? Really?
    So here’s what POTUS’ team has to do:
    If the Debate Committee tries to finalize their “new rules”, POTUS’ team MUST demand the following be ADDED:
    Mandatory drug tests of POTUS and Ole Joe.
    Mandatory “wire detection exam”.
    Mandatory search for ANY remote / outside communications station, audio transmittal station, etc., within a 6-block radius of the debate site.
    Mandatory CURBS on interruptions by the “moderator”.
    Mandatory PROHIBITION of ANY extraneous inclusion by the “moderator” of questions into the debate during the event itself.

    IN addition, POTUS’ team MUST bring, NOW, any and all video / audio / photographic items showing that JOE BIDEN was not only wired for the September 29 debate, but was ALSO getting his answers TRANSMITTED to him.

  2. lots of “possible” problems already being discussed (and dismissed –who’s surprised) in the theft of voting equipment in Philly…
    FTA
    A laptop and several memory sticks used to program Philadelphia’s voting machines were stolen from a city warehouse in East Falls, officials confirmed Wednesday, setting off a scramble to investigate and to ensure the machines had not been compromised.

    Though it remains unclear when the equipment was stolen, sources briefed on the investigation said the items vanished this week. The laptop belonged to an on-site employee for the company that supplies the machines. It and the USB drives were the only items believed to have been taken.

    snip

    Custodio, the deputy to Deeley, said officials ensured the stolen laptop had been disabled remotely after the theft was discovered to prevent it from being used and added that it “did not have any of our election material on it.”

    His statement did not address the stolen memory sticks, which are used to program the machines in advance of an election, including setting the design of the ballots.

    snip

    The commissioners have begun checking all the seals on the machines, which are numbered to prevent them from being opened and simply replaced, Custodio said, to ensure they have not been tampered with.

    Sources familiar with the investigation said late Wednesday that during the review, officials found several machines had the wrong seal numbers, but Custodio said they believe the discrepancies were due to a logging error in recording the numbers and did not indicate that the machines had been compromised.

    In this DECEMBER 15, 2019, medical assessment report, Dr. O’Connor describes Biden as a “healthy, vigorous 77-year-old male WHO IS FIT to successfully execute the duties of the Presidency…” (emphasis mine)

        Why isn’t it a rosary – Dems saying it is – a single decade rosary would have shown in it’s entity – w/ a little cross or religious medal. In fact, he’d have proudly shown it off.

No one observing Joe Biden over the past 10 months, even the past 6 months could say that he hasn’t declined. His cognitive function has declined. His appearance is pale and frail. People with his illness look worse by the day.

  4. I wish somehow the American people would realize that the unreasonable hatred of the President coming from so many powerful people and organizations is because they are no longer able to buy influence.

    And corrupt politicians are mad because their bribes and ability to steal has been negatively impacted.

    They have had things their way for so long.

    Now, like babies who succeeded in grabbing illicit sweets, they remind me of what happens when Momma removes the lollipop from their mouth.

    I don’t know if there is a list of all of the money stolen from the people by dirty politicians and/or one of the countries who have benefited from funding these people, but an ad exposing this which serves as a memorable soundbite might help wake up those who have not paid attention.

    When I found out how corrupt the Bushes were I was ashamed that I had ever voted for them.

    Surely there remain some of those on the left who would feel the same way about their side.

  6. LM…. I’ve been walking a lot recently and to help keep me going I listen to audio books (lots of hills and I need distraction!). I’m currently listening to an old Clive Cussler book called Typhoon Fury. The story revolves around a super steroid pill developed by the Germans in the ‘30 and later also used by the Japanese in WWII to enhance the performance of the soldiers…super strength, fast healing…all the usual steroid-related properties, but 100x. But, like any steroids, the withdrawal is severe…again 100x.
    Because I just came in from my walk, your comment about the dirty politicians, businessmen, banks, organization leaders, etc. reminded me of that powerful steroid. In the fictional book, it’s about power, obscene amounts money and control once people are addicted. (Obama famously stated that at one point everyone has enough money…then he and Michelle took the addiction pill…and now it’s never enough!)
    The protagonists in the book will do anything…anything….to obtain it and keep it. Much like the Deep State and Globalists in real life, isn’t it?

      Power and wealth are a heady combination. These, along with blackmail seem to be reglarly employed by the left as means of control.

      The problem is that they seem to be of use mainly with those who are corrupt, stupid or naive enough to be indoctrinated, or some combination of all of the above.

      Imo, this is why their leaders are such vacuous, evil people mainly devoid of abstract reasoning or moral character.

  8. Today, President Donald J. Trump announced his intent to nominate:

    Joseph Dawson of South Carolina, to serve as Judge on the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina.

    Joseph Dawson is the County Attorney for the County of Charleston, South Carolina, where he is responsible for managing and overseeing all legal matters for the County and its officials. Mr. Dawson also operates his own solo law practice and focuses on general civil litigation and providing strategic advice to small businesses. Mr. Dawson earned his B.A. from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, and his J.D. from the University of South Carolina School of Law.

      As Dawson is a fellow Charlestonian, I of course wanted to take a look at him. All info is the same with repetitive complaints about the excessive salary he has been drawing during his rather long tenure as Charleston County Atty.

      Charleston County voted for Clinton in 2016 and about 1/3+ demographically are voters of color.

      The very first reference I pulled up appeared to be a DEM hotbed…

      So I looked some more:

      https://www.live5news.com/story/14566073/charleston-county-attorney-dodges-questions-about-his-salary/

      Then I checked good ol’ Martindale to see what his peers think of him (latest entry is 2012)

      Dawson is the county attorney for Charleston County, S.C. and supervises six other attorneys. He also is permitted a private law practice on the side. He has been roundly criticized for refusing to disgorge a ridiculous and outrageously high salary he receives because of favorable political connections.

        1. Grey’s Anatomy had a character who was supposedly a strong Christian who fell into a fornication relationship w/ an atheist or agnostic & ended up marrying him. She fell pregnant w/ a child that was deemed to have unsurvivable disabilities. The mother-in-law, never tolerant of the woman’s religious views, pushed for abortion. The Christian wouldn’t budge. Their compromise position was to induce labor so early that the baby would never survive, a different form of abortion. They had all the lovely trappings of a birth, got to love on the baby for a bit before he/she died & the Christian magically “aborted” with a clean conscience. Cultural marxism at its very best aka worst!

            2. My mom, an RN, was trained in Resolve Through Sharing, a grief recovery process for those who lost a pregnancy or infant. They had all sorts of mechanisms to help the family cope including dressing the baby, baptisms, photos, funeral if desired, etc.

              It infuriates me that when the babies were deliberately delivered pre-term knowing they wouldn’t survive that that type of service could be used to “normalize” the fact that you deliberately killed your child “softly” so you could show love & care for them before you put them in the earth…or the fire…

              That’s entirely different than families who have tragedy visited on them in the loss of their child, in my opinion…

              It seems, like the character on Grey’s Anatomy, that some people choose that route when told their child (likely) will be born with disabilities. They think they are taking the moral high ground to kill such a child rather than play the hand God has dealt them, with all the ups & downs that might entail.

  13. Senate subpoenaing “big tech” because the CEO’s declined to participate…
    FTA
    The committee voted unanimously to authorize these subpoenas and then debated whether the hearing should take place before or after the November 3 election. While some Democrats expressed that they think it should happen after, the Republicans, who control the committee, seem likely to move forward with the hearings swiftly.

    “On the eve of a momentous and highly charged election,” said committee chairman Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), “it is imperative that this committee of jurisdiction and the American people receive a full accounting from the heads of these companies about their content moderation practices.”

    The subpoenas were necessary, he added, because the CEOs had “declined to participate.”

        In fact they probably have to do this anyway close to the election so that it won’t be “surprising” how bad they are.

  15. Carlos has two new threads on the debate:

    #1. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1311514861038231552.html

    ….. [military stuff]
    Last night Trump created a paradigm shift.

    Politic is will never be the same.

    The commentary is so feeble because the shift has not yet been recognized.

    They talking about muzzling Trump in the next debate.

    Nope.

    Won’t happen.
    Biden has to rise to Trump’s level.

    So do debate moderators.

    It’s what WE THE VOTERS now expect.

    One debate changed everything.

    From now one we expect direct talk, not the same old lies and biases.
    Today Chris Wallace says he’s sad and how everything “went off the rails.”

    He has some nerve.

    Here are the six topics he announced:

    The Trump and Biden Records
    The Supreme Court
    Covid-19
    The Economy
    Race and Violence in our Cities
    The Integrity of the Election
    What’s missing?

    Climate change.

    Wallace LIED TO US and tried to nail Trump with an unannounced topic that BIDEN knew Wallace would introduce but that Wallace thought would hurt Trump.

    Made no difference.

    Trump slaughtered BOTH BIDEN AND WALLACE.

    Paradigm shift.
    The debate was NOTHING that all the “experts” are claiming.

    It was a non-politician refusing to play the game and read from the script that all the flopped Republicans read from.

    NOBODY’S EVER SPOKEN TO BIDEN THAT WAY IN HIS LIFE.

    You think he wants to go through that again?
    This was Trump TRAINING everybody:

    Knock off the corruption or face my wrath.

    It was magnificent.

    Trump has never done that before, even in his private life.

    Look how natural he was.

    How easy it came to him.

    Righteous fury.
    Some people never accept paradigm shifts.

    They fall off the radar screen.

    Politics changed forever last night.

    It wasn’t pretty.

    BUT IT SURE WAS FUN.

    I enjoyed it thoroughly.

    In other words, President Trump refused to play by The Marquess of Queensberry Rules and be a good little battered Conservative so the DemonRats, Wallace & Biden could use him as a punching bag.

    #2 Thread is in answer to another tweet who doesn’t GET the Trumpian shift.

  16. This Carlos thread specifically goes into the ‘Condemn White Supremacists Stuff’ that we are all hardily sick of by now. https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1311766140725555201.html

    (WHAT White Supremacists??? All I have seen is a bunch of lies, some harmless kooks and the occasional crazy criminal…. AND SENATOR BYRD, beloved of Hillary and Joe Bit-me. )

    I’m sure that @realDonaldTrump read Joseph Heller’s WWII novel Catch-22.

    That means Trump knows about Major ________ de Coverley and the Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade.

    And THAT is why Trump always refuses to condemn on command.

    @johnrobertsFox is part of the Crusade.

    In the novel, Captain Black decides that he’ll stand out among the officers on the Army Air Force base if he begins making men sign loyal oaths to the US when they deal with him.

    All the officers on the base in command of all functions suit.
    In order to do anything, the men must sign loyalty oaths.

    Black sees that he no longer stands out, so he makes the men sign TWO loyalty oaths.

    The other officers follow suit.

    Black ups it to three then four loyal oaths, and then reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.
    Next the men who come to Black’s intelligence tent must sing the Star Spangled Banner.

    It got to four loyalty oaths, the pledge of Allegiance, and four choruses of the National Anthem.

    With each addition, Black scorned the other officers for not following suit.

    “The combat men in the squadron discovered themselves dominated by the administrators appointed to serve them. They were bullied, insulted, harassed and shoved about all day long by one after the other.”
    “When they voiced objection, Captain Black replied that people who were loyal would not mind signing all the loyalty oaths they had to.”

    “To anyone who questioned the effectiveness of the loyalty oaths, he replied that people who really did owe allegiance to their country would be proud to pledge it as often as he forced them to.”
    NOW DO YOU GET IT?

    Catch-22 continues.
    “‘The important thing is to keep them pledging,’ Black explained to his cohorts. ‘It doesn’t matter
    whether they mean it or not.'”

    “To Captain Piltchard and Captain Wren, the Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade was a glorious pain in the ass, since it complicated their task of organizing the crews for each combat mission.”

    “Men were tied up all over the squadron signing, pledging and singing, and the missions took hours longer to get under way.”

    “Effective emergency action became impossible, but Captain Piltchard and Captain Wren were both too timid to raise any outcry against Captain Black, who scrupulously enforced each day the doctrine of ‘Continual Reaffirmation’ that he had originated…”

    “…a doctrine designed to trap all those men who had become disloyal since the last time they had signed a loyalty oath the day before.”
    Enter Major ________ de Coverley.

    Nobody knows what his job is because he’s so terrifying. Everyone is so afraid of him than nobody even knows his first name.

    They’re all too afraid to ask.

    He looks like a white-haired Biblical patriarch, and he always makes sure to find the men incredible accommodations when they go on leave, so the men love him despite their fear.

    He was away looking for accommodations when the Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade came into being.
    After Major ________ de Coverley returns, he goes to the mess tent and stops dead, staring.

    Every man is signing loyalty oaths, reciting the Pledge, and singing the National Anthem at every step of the way.

    He pushes through the crowd, and the tent falls silent.
    Major ________ de Coverley gets a tray, moves to the head of the line, and slams down his tray.

    “Gimmie eat,” he snarls to the cook.

    The cook hold out a loyalty oath and a pen.

    Major ________ de Coverley knocks it out of his hand.

    “GIMMIE EAT, I SAID,” he bellows.
    The cook hurriedly complies.

    Major ________ de Coverley turns and surveys the room, turns back to the cook, and sweeps his arm in an arc to indicate the men.

    “Give EVERYBODY eat!”

    And that was the end of the Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade.
    You NEVER comply when ordered to denounce or condemn on command.

    Look at THIS happy horseshit.

    McMaster: Trump Is ‘Aiding and Abetting Putin’s Efforts’ on Election Interference

    Former Trump National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said President Donald Trump was “aiding and abetting” Vladimir Putin by not directly calling out Russia’s election interference on Thursday’s broad…
    *https://www.breitbart.com/clips/2020/10/01/mcmaster-trump-is-aiding-and-abetting-putins-efforts-on-election-interference/

    HOW is Trump aiding and abetting Putin?

    “This sustained campaign of disruption, disinformation, and denial, is aided by any leader who doesn’t acknowledge it. This is why, I think, the president has to be much stronger in condemning this effort to really reduce our confidence in who we are as Americans.”

    Have you ever heard of anything stupider in your life?

    McMaster has no idea what Trump is DOING behind the scenes.

    He just wants strong VERBAL condemnation, like we got in the past.

    HOW EFFECTIVE WAS THAT?
    And let’s see a show of hands:

    How many of you feel a reduced confidence in who we are as Americans?

    How many of you will feel a GREATER confidence in who we are as Americans if Trump condemns Russia?

    This is why Democrats are unfit to hold positions of power.

    McMaster honestly believes that unless Trump makes an entirely USELESS verbal condemnation, Trump is aiding and abetting the Russians.

    McMaster was once a brilliant man.

    The mental illness of leftism made him into a shadow of what he was.
    ALL UNTREATED MENTAL ILLNESS IS PROGRESSIVE.

    It always gets worse.

    Public condemnations on command must NEVER be made.

    Trump is right to always refuse to comply.

    Maine court cites voter fraud concern in ruling against push for ballot harvesting, extending absentee deadline
    h/t Citizen Free Press
    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/maine-court-voter-fraud-ruling-against-ballot-harvest-deadline-extension

    “The Maine Superior Court dealt a blow to organizations and voters who are looking to relax state laws dealing with absentee voting, including those involving third parties turning in ballots and the state’s Election Day deadline for receiving them.

    “Justice William R. Stokes denied the plaintiff’s request for a preliminary injunction that would have blocked state officials from enforcing the current laws, claiming that state interests — including the desire to prevent voter fraud — outweigh any burdens that may be imposed on voters. One such law forbids third parties from being compensated for collecting and turning in ballots, a practice often referred to as ballot harvesting.”

    Per John Solomon….
    Yes ODNI Ratcliffe can tell Haspel to declass and release docs. I think Grinnell already did….He said Agency Heads had been ordered to declass and that they weren’t complying. So that’s Wray, Haspel, and 17 says StateD people who aren’t complying. Are these docs the same ones POTUS previously ordered declassed? What is penalty for defying Presidential order? Sedition?
    It may have to be escalated to POTUS to order these Agency heads to submit. SMDH

  20. Nunes on Dobbs. We need video.

    Commenting on declass and Durham. Had an interesting observation. He thinks Dem media have been planting fake stories to send Durham chasing rabbit trails, thereby running out clock. He commanded DoJ and Durham to ignore, stop reading the news.
    He also said Barr and Durham need to take action BEFORE the election. Durham findings have ZERO to do with this election. If DoJ doesn’t say anything, it’s akin to the coupe continuing. He’s absolutely correct. All their deception and lies have convinced almost half of America that Trump is working with and was elected by the Russians. History needs to be corrected in front of ALL Americans, NOW!!
