02AUG2018 – Quote of the Day

“The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can’t get and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is sort of an advance auction sale of stolen goods.”

H. L. Mencken

Charlie Reese wrote this barn burner. I’m spreading I around, it was given to me by others who are spreading around. The greatest rant ever written. Wow just Wow. And the truth of it, is it any wonder why Mr. Trump then is able not only able to do what he is accomplished, but do things in hours what would take years, it it ever got done to begin with. He is not one of the 545. Neither are we. And look who it is we are fighting…eachother. Divide and conquer is the hallmark of the weasels in the swamp.… Read more »

My wife learned Reese published back a few years just before he passed. Timeless and more relevant today, a hallmark of keen insights if you ask me. Hope your errands went well. I’m off to tend our truck garden. Been trying an experiment with sharecropping. One of the efforts my neighbor farmer and friend and I are making, to create another level of community and tribe up on our rural remote ridge top community. Lot of cattle are raised up here, and there is a surplus of grazing and hay fields. Some are under grazing/hay crop lease and arent fully… Read more »

I hear you. It begins with each of us I think. We built our own hybrid off grid wind & solar system. Constantly folks come by and ask about how we did it and its performance, cost etc. I offer most everyone if the want feel free to copy what we did, and to provide help with theirs. So far 3 people are pretty serious about building their own. A forth neighbor is building a log cabin mansion near by, they asked for a quote for me to install a total offgrid system for them when they begin building. See… Read more »

PS, this came across the resistance MAGA network:

https://voxday.blogspot.com/2018/08/false-flag-averted.html?m=1

Seems the Secret Service and others caught wind of CNN and the neo-bolsheviks antifa attempting to create a little false flag event framing Q and the Qanons as violent Nazis in the early hours before a Trump MAGA rally in Wylkes Booth PA.

Interesting and interestinger.
Mmm.
If Pizzagate and the ongoing deep state palace coup is not true, why try to frame the grass roots movement behind exposing these truth of these hedious crimes and treason and its actors?

A quick google search shows H L Mencken as the originator of that quote, but I certainly wasn’t there to testify one way or another.

I followed your link but quickly got lost. Who/what is “Q and the Qanons”?

I can’t see that being the case. Speaking for myself I appreciate you and your comments, in high regard.

My blog rarely receives comments. Though I have read and deleted a number of just hateful deranged posts by what appears to be psychopaths or nasty trolls from the left.
I do get regular visits from encrypted internal email accounts on my stats page originating at corporate Google and Yahoo. I figure they are checking out my White right wing racist Nazi skinhead blog posts.
LOL’s!

PS, I try to link your posts on my blog regularly, though I’m without a computer currently, its out for repairs. Links to Your Trump satires are consistent. I takes awhile I suppose to pick up a core of regular commenters, then I think that’s when the scrum gets going. You have a great blog title, post intelligent interesting things. From the first time, I’ve made your blog a daily visit in a merry go round of daily blogs and sites. Lot of people I suspect have their shy shoes on at first, and wait for comments they feel they… Read more »

That’s a complex thing to describe Q and the Anon’s on 4channel and 8channel. Extremely briefly, Q is a avatar for somebody who has access or is involved in, with, Trump’s White Hats. It appears after JFK’s assassination, an internal group within our government has quietly and carefully organized a resistance within the government, and they are with Mr. Trump, working to rid the Republic of its domestic internal enemies, usurpations and power. Q has maintained a reddit thread where he lays out “breadcrumbs”, to provide clues to events in the form of getting people to think outside their normal… Read more »

I remember linkage in the page that shows where people link to leaving my blog. And a number of times your blog referred my blog with linkage back. It doesn’t specify if you have a purposed link just for my blog. But I’m new to WordPress blog operating system. Haven’t got the feel yet for their software engineering style, so I’m probably missing using a number of features I haven’t noticed or understand.
Makes sense?
