I have a Californian friend who is very very opposed to Trump and I was suggesting to him the other day maybe he should look at the bigger picture (he's not spiritual) so he prefers to be angry at Trump. I certainly won't be mentioning that Trump maybe re-elected That would depress him. He says Trump is destroying America? Any tips to give him a little reassurance?
Why not tell him that the next President "after Trump" will be a Democrat and a woman
@santanu give him a hug too 😁. Actually that could be a full time job
He'll probably be pleased about that
I wouldn't invest any time attempting to reassure him. He'll vote the way he prefers, that's democracy. The way to grow up and learn that sometimes we get what we want and other times "you don't always get what you want" (to quote the great Mick Jagger) is for him and for any one of us, to decide for ourselves, that we choose to become an adult and abandon the adolescent spoiled brat routine.
He should be really glad he has the chance to hate on the winner of an election, because it means there actually was an election and he now has the opportunity to help elect who & what he prefers next time.
In many places around the world still, and throughout human history, the notion of —much less demand for— an election, more often than not has brought about the racking sound of a rifle bolt.
I personally watched protests in the streets where people made fun of the dictator's old acne scars, calling him pineapple face in public, painting symbols of the fruit on the street with eyes and a mouth. Those folks got rounded up and "sent away". I also personally watched tanks and combat troops roll down the street near my apartment the morning after terrorists threatened to kill senators. I know what a car bomb sounds like. I personally watched a massive crowd protest the president, inviting a union leader to address the hundreds of thousands of citizens there. That union worker was himself elected president years later, and is now in prison for corruption.
Your California friend might be naïve. Only he can choose to see how he derives personal emotional benefit from his emotions and his ideological bubble.
Yeah... well, he's not spiritual minded at all and very much in the 3D thinking. All I was suggesting to him was to see the bigger picture etc etc...
I would suggest the whitehouse.gov generally and this link in particular
Then I would suggest he watch the YouTube video by Storm Is Upon Us called : Q The Plan To Save The World.
@Linda--I checked out the sites you suggested, both are excellent! Although in my world, most people I know who deny Trump have very strong opinions and act quite childish when it comes to presenting them with any facts or figures. I give up!
Thanks Linda xx
That's an interesting video, Linda. I'd like to hear what Pat and the Committee have to say about this Q guy, but I don't think he can without getting into trouble, probably falls under criminal. Reminds me of Mark Felt.
The Committee already responded about the Q video. They said “almost all of what is suggested in the video will prove true”
I originally asked about Q sometime around July 23, 2018 and another reader asked about Q again in November 14,2018.
I realized the identity of Q on 12/8/2018 after reading the clues given by TC which were: Q is a fictional character and is not military nor government.
I have posted previously that ...
Q is Jesus (Yeshua/Jeshua/The One We Know As Jesus/ Jesus Christ.
My only view of this is the following.
My family has an Bed and Breakfast, and an Air b n b business here in far north Queensland, frequented by Mericans.
I have bee astounded by the percentage of them ide suggest 95% who absolutely despise Trump , and almost have an " apologising " on behalf of the country mentality if his name pops up. It ALWAYS does.
I'm probably talking about a total of 50 or so people's from places like but not limited to Texas. Carolinas, Alaska,Washington , New York. These are just the state's I remember.. Can only call it as I've seen and heard it!!! 😀
Unfortunately, We The People of the United States of America produce our share of the arrogant, and that BnB must have a 100KGs magnet installed!
Seriously, I'd wonder why the subject even comes up, do they think Aussies really want to hear their opinions, one way or the other?
The apologies aren't surprising, it's a coping mechanism folks employ after putting lots of thought & emotion into something, to the point of becoming mentally invested —such as a boy/girlfriend, job or marriage— discovering rudely that things are not what they thought or prefer, that they weren't being given an accurate picture by an illustrious press & the unflappable, always precise and spot-on pollsters.
Oh, rest assured Pat, the average Aussie doesn't have to be asked twice to part take in some verbal bashing of politicians if the opportunity arises. 🤣🤣 !!!
Love him or hate him, it cannot be denied he is one of the biggest conversation pieces modern day humans have ever seen , imo. 😀
So the Democrats beat a dead horse with the Russian collusion. Will we have to endure another year of the Ukraine investigation? Did Trump do anything worth all the fuss? It seems Congress has so much time engaged in anti-Trump efforts that nothing is getting accomplished. Are their efforts a smokescreen for something else that we should be watching instead?
I don't see the endless distracting investigations as bad. The less government does, the better.
I was just going to say that! Less government is better government!
President Trump was booed and taunted with chants of "LOCK HIM UP" when he appeared at Sunday's World Series game. This occurred only hours after Trump had proudly announced that the world's most wanted man had died in a daring special ops raid.
He gave full credit and the highest praise to the troops and to all the U.S. military for their bravery and skill. This was carried out without any injury to our troops, aside from the military dog who was injured.
I am outraged and heartbroken at the shameful reaction of the crowd at the World Series. "Derangement" is too nice a word, I think "Depravity" is a more fitting description.
P.S --CNN's incredulous and false headlines today regarding the death of al-Baghdadi--Breaking news: "Trump Kills Unarmed Father of Three." The truth is this vicious terrorist along with three of his children, exploded his own suicide vest when he was cornered.
The Astros plastered the Nationals 8-1, taking a three games to two lead in the best of seven series. Maybe the Nationals fans might think about that.
Not sure there is a whole lot of thought involved...
Good stuff! The Astros showed them their fighting fury!
The spite (to put it mildly) directed at Trump is very much justified I'm afraid. Have you seen Last Week Tonight yesterday? Let me summarize what I can gather regarding the situation is Syria.
Yes, al-Baghdadi has been eliminated, and that is a very positive thing. However, Trump followed this up with a bunch of rather questionable choices:
It all comes down to his decision to withdraw American troops from the Turkish border in Syria. The United States have been holding the area for a long time, protecting the Kurds - a long-time ally of the US - from Turkey, the Syrian government and ISIS. When the troops withdrew, they practically abandoned the Kurds. Turkish forces immediately moved in, killed 120 civilians and caused 180k more to flee ... something which us - Germany - will probably have to deal with. (Though it's to be doubted that all of them make it that far.)
Turns out that Erdogan has trouble with a Kurdish terrorist group called the PKK and he conflates them with the same Kurds that have been working alongside the US-army as soldiers. Trump at least tried to soften things up but, well, you can read the letter he wrote to Erdogan on 9th October right here. I quoted it just for you:
"Let's work out a good deal! You don't want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don't want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy - and I will. I've already given you a little sample with respect to Pastor Brunson.
I have worked hard to solve some of your problems. Don't let the world down. You can make a great deal. General Mazloum is willing to negotiate with you, and he is willing to make concessions that they would never have made in the past. I am confidentially enclosing a copy of his letter to me, just received.
History will look upon you favorably if you get this done the right and humane way. It will look upon you forever as the devil of good things don't happen. Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool!"
Needless to say, Erdogan was enraged. This is just a little treat for all you guys who are reading this. Oh, and I should probably also mention that over 100 ISIS-members escaped because of the sudden retreat of US forces. And that this made it quite convenient for Russia to step in and gain some influence over Syrian territory.
I will not comment on that, mainly because now I'm tired writing this humungous text.
I believe "spite" is in the eye of the beholder. You cited a comedian as an unbiased source of news...a source who is wholly against Trump, and will spin anything to ensure he looks badly. Source considered, source rejected. Thank you for your lengthy missive.
I'm glad US forces left, but I am not impartial on this issue. My son was badly injured in combat in Syria fighting those ISIS futhermuckers and had to be airlifted to Kuwait then Germany. (He made a full recovery and returned to combat command elsewhere; Somalia.)
The USA should NEVER have invaded Iraq. We have spent billions, we've lost and ruined how many American lives in the process and for what? What the f*** have we gotten for it?
Who's coming to the rescue to prevent those murdering thug gangs in Sasketchwan from slaughtering people in Quebec? Who's stopping the vicious Hasidic Jews in New York City from attacking and killing those poor Baptists in the South? Who came from offshore to stop the Union forces from attacking the Confederacy, a war in which four percent of the adult USA population was killed?
The president is finally getting the USA away from unending war and you're angry he wrote the president of Turkey a nasty letter? The last president of the USA was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize as he took office yet kept USA Armed Forces in Middle East combat for the whole eight years he was in charge. Trump had ISIS done & gone inside of six months. My son was one of the key ground combat commanders who ran the operation out of Mosul.
Erdogan should grow up. Who gives a rip if he's furious? Too bad... he has the choice to protect his own border and leave his neighbors alone, but he wants to seize Turkish territory. You're finding a way to attempt to make the president look bad because we're FINALLY leaving a conflict which REFUSES to solve itself?
One too many "comedians" being used as a platform for promoting the leftist agenda...It's sad that so many folks fall for this myopic, manipulative crap and form their opinions without seeking the truth.
And they're not even comedians...they're shock jocks intent on saying anything to pander to the audience they attract, in this case, those addicted to the media and its Trump hatred...none of it having any substance.
Patrick, blessings to your courageous son, and to your entire family--it cannot be an easy time for you all when your son is deployed. I am so grateful that we finally have a president who does not trivialize the human price of war.
Donald Trump (who by the way, volunteers his services as president and chooses to donate his entire salary to assist various U.S. government programs) is a tough-love kind of guy and refuses to play Big Brother as his predecessors have. The U.S. is only 4.27% of the world's population, so I hope y'all can excuse us for not sending any more of our kids to their death to fight your never-ending conflicts.
It was mentioned he would be bringing Term Limits, Abolish the IRS, bring single payer and help with LGBT rights, sometime during his next term.
1. Will it turn them around or are they too far gone in their thinking? 2. Or is it one of those things where people won't really hand that to him until another ten years down the road when it sinks in what he was about?
A really good question for me, because I didn't understand too well what all the pronouns refer to ... but The Committee does!
1. No and yes. The current thinking which prevails against the USA's president will expire over time as the people holding the hard beliefs age and pass on. New ideas and approaches will come to modify and replace current trends, as has always occurred.
2. History always sharpens focus for a time. Once the history is no longer relevant, it can and will be forgotten. This has already happened many a time on Earth.
The currently fashionable preference that bringing people together is ideal, will be seen as mistaken; diverse ideas and differences of opinion are normal. General disagreement is the natural human condition, and condition of your soul consenus is not, in either case. Acceptance of others' views is the best and quickest method to secure acceptance of one's own preferences.
Pronouns? I didn't know I was doing that. I think I've forgotten what a pronoun is. I'm going to look that up. Lol. Thanks for asking again.
We aren't but it seems the people at the World Series, the people in this country are teaching each other how to be bullies. Our kids are watching and learning. It's becoming fashionable to get aggressive about it, too. That was sad (World Series) and embarrassing at the same time. It's to bad he won't be able to enjoy some appreciation from the country as a whole while still in office. It makes you think about how tough he must be. Thick skinned, to be able to put up with all of it and still do what he's doing. He's got to be pretty damned focused.
@ Scott R: To what the the words "it", "them", "they" "that", "him" in your question refer, wasn't immediately obvious.
It's a downside with communication for me, maybe not as much for other people; the effects from telepathy and multilingualism. When I read spoken or hear written language (see what I did there?) telepathy is suspended, causing me to rely more on words than most folks might.
I am curious what does the democratic leadership hope to accomplish by impeachment besides appeasing their base? If they know they can’t actually get it through the Senate while driving away moderate voters in the process I don’t see much upside for them. Lastly what is the long term effect of this behavior to our political system of first passing judgement (impeachment) while shopping for a reason to do it afterwards (Russia, Ukraine, or what ever comes next)? It’s obvious at this point to most people it doesn’t matter if he is guilty or not they want throw him out.
Says The Committee (paraphrasing): The objective - what is hoped accomplished - is remove Trump by any means, because the political opposition knows Trump will be re-elected otherwise.
How voters view politics and vote because of that, will not change.
Of course the detractors of Trump hate to endure another 4 years of Trump presidency.
We, detractor or supporter of Trump alike, are grateful, for the advanced notice provided by the GAG, so we can better prepare (or brace) ourselves of what is to come.
Although highly unlikely, it is still possible, to un-seat Trump, if enough detractors of Trump work hard enough to persuade enough American voters to dump Trump. There is no one else to blame (and certainly not the Russians), if Trump is re-elected, but for the opposition not working hard enough.
We are also grateful to know even if Trump is impeached by the House, he will not be convicted by the Senate. Again, it is still possible, although highly unlikely. If the detractors of Trump really want to remove Trump from office, they can work harder on the conviction before it is too late.
Look at Hong Kong, Lebanon, and Chile, the energy wave of the awakening is prompting ordinary people to stand up to injustice and tyranny. Fortunately, the latest round of protest seems to focus more on inequality and is less nationalistic than before.
Question to GAG:
(1) Will the protest in Hong Kong, Lebanon, and Chile result in any substantive change, or will they just die down after the masses have vented their frustration? I certainly hope the Chinese communist rulers will not send tanks to Hong Kong to crush the students.
(2) Will the energy wave of awakening stir up more massive protest by ordinary people elsewhere in the world?
(3) Is another world-wide economic recession coming soon, as a result of the trade war by Trump, or by economic or political turmoil elsewhere?
The GAG always states that everything only happens as a result of the cumulative will of everyone. But we are just one person out of 7 billion, our ability to influence current events is rather limited, so we can only ask for some foresight to prepare ourselves.
Says The Committee:
"Trump will not be removed from power before next year's election and will be re-elected president."
1) Permanent improvements will not develop from these protests. They serve to lessen frustration, just as you have said.
3) Yes, but not because of trade or Trump. Business cycles and behavior, will begin the economic contraction.
"Your human physical proportion is not a good predictor of your influence; you are aware in ways the vast majority of your fellow humans are not. Your ability to use your thoughts makes you count as if you were tens of thousands, not merely one."
Did TC say how bad the recession will be and what the major effects for society will be ? And what time frame are we talking ,as I thought it would be harder for Trump to be re-elected in a recession, as he might be blamed for it. Thanks
No, to all your questions. They have not predicted timing, duration or intensity but suggest it is unlikely before Trump leaves office.
1. Anything going to be unearthed on corruption on the previous administration with this impeachment inquiry? What was Hunter Biden really doing in the Ukraine and China?
2. Would love to see Hillary’s email scam unveiled, every government worker has to properly document their files, why not The Secretary of State? Will the public ever know the truth?
3. We needed Trumps brash personality and resilience to his distractors to drain the swamp and stand up for America. I really don’t care if he is a pompous ass most of the time, we needed a bully to out bully the tougher personalities of the world. Presumed social injustices are a small piece of the pie right now. We had a lot to be corrected. My question is how will Trump be treated in history books? Will he been seen as a hero or a zero? Will people eventually see the sacrifices he has made and not see it as just an ego trip?
Nos responde El Comité:
(The Committee answers us):
1. Yes, however not revealed through an impeachment inquiry. Mr. Biden the younger was collecting money for his father, and some for himself.
2. It is already known what happened, what remains is to read the deleted, erased information. The political cost of erasing it was far cheaper then alternatives; Mrs. Clinton's outrage at losing the election was fed by her direct knowledge of far more salacious things done by other candidates and elected officials which did not prevent elective victory for them. Mrs. Clinton felt mistreated, by comparison.
3. Neither of the two suggestions. Trump will be seen much as he is now, by obervers not blinded with disgust, as the USA's reaction to his predecessor.
"...far cheaper THAN alternatives..."
The @*&%$!! spell check function on this app drives me C R A Z Y ....
This notion that Trump is a bully is the product of political correctness, which is the poison pill to free speech. How can someone reveal corruption if it’s too negative and divisive to talk about? Why do people in a free speech society try to “kill” the messenger for just bringing the light?
Do these same readers here who think Trump is a bully also think Patrick is a bully when he states powerfully how he feels about an issue? Patrick can slice and dice an issue and do so skillfully and effectively as he stands up for himself. What’s the difference?
I’m finding the same type of resistance as I reveal the corruption in my local HOA, Phoenix, the county of Maricopa and AZ in general. What I am finding is people just want to move along. It’s like the people in the story Of The Allegory of The Cave. Those who have been in the cave so long want to stay there rather than expose their eyes to the light and see what’s really going on. Sunlight is the best of disinfectants, as one Justice put it.
A while back I asked TC if Hilliard Clinton would be found guilty of anything. The answer was no. That disappointed me because those who are fighting against the corruption need to see that the tide has changed and justice and rule of law will prevail against corruption
Speaking of political correctness as a poison pill...here’s something timely
“Hello! Do you have a minute to talk about Dracula?”
“Yes. We have pamphlets.”
“Vampire have missionaries?”
“Where else would new vampires come from?”
“I assumed you bit people.”
“There are many hurtful stereotypes. May we come in?”
Kinda like that story President Trump has told about the kind woman who took in the frozen snake. Same same but different 😊
I haven't heard or read that story!! Where can I?
Paraphrased from an old article.....
"....life immediately gets about 542% better upon realization that information online is predominantly 5-10% extreme views and that 90-95% of life occurs in the much quieter middle-ground where most of mankind really lives. Reading enough stuff on-line makes it easy to believe World War 3 is imminent, corporations rule the world through conspiracy, all men are rapists or at least complicit, all women are fake, hypergamous whores, there's a patriarchy subjugating women, white people are victims of reverse racism, war on Christmas is real, white people organize behind closed doors to oppress any & everyone who isn't, all poor people are lazy & destroying government and on and on....
Retreat to the quiet 90+% to remind yourself: life is more simple than it isn't, people are good and divisions which appear to separate us are often just cracks."
Here’s a link to the snake story. It’s around three minutes long https://youtu.be/qSrOXvoNLwg
So should I just retreat and stop pushing to the change I want to see?
Remain focused on the life outside the cave (referring to the allegory)?
I know ultimately the choice is mine, but from previous encouragement from TC to speak up, maybe it’s enough to have created cracks through which the light will come? Maybe I’m not understanding?
NO, don't retreat or give up. When "waging battle"...remember the good 90% is always there for us, win OR lose. That way, you will win, and maybe in ways you might not expect!
Linda, which snake story are you sending us to? The video is not available in Canada
Live the change you want to see.
Your eyes are open to the light outside the cave most people have theirs closed, you can not do that they will in time.
I understand TC encouragement to speak-up when you come across someone who is just opening their eyes.
Search the terms: Trump Snake Story and you’ll see the links for it. come up.
The link I posted was to a snippet of video of one of Trumps rallies in which he read the story of the snake.
Thanks for that 😊
I agree with the parable but disagree in the context that he use it.
Just wondering if The Committee might weigh in on the Houston mayor’s race. Another 4 years of Turner or can Buzbee win the December runoff.
If Buzbee wins, will he bring positive change to the city?
