        Gibberish to those like you, but not to others who understand a great deal of what is being said.

        Q has people curious. People are out researching, learning new things on their own and with the help of others.
        People’s newly-found knowledge is being shared, and spread to those who have never heard, or seen, before.
        Q is reaching the heretofore “unreachables” of many on the deep web, and is stretching their talents as they have never used them before.
        Upthread is a convo on the failings of our public schools. Through Q, people on learning on their own.

        Please explain how this is a bad thing.

          It’s fine to be a Q sceptic, yet its shortsighted to deny the impact of Q’s followers. There has been an amazing amount of open source research on the Q boards that have been distributed via memes, blogs and social media.

          What you say has been true for me. I have researched and learned things I never knew. Sundance has also opened my eyes to his theories. Through Q, I have gone “deeper” in many directions on many issues.. I never knew what I was missing until Q caused me to become more curious. I began to explore the internet for alternatives to what I was being told elsewhere. I am no longer so full of hubris about my former thoughts and I thank Q for that desire to investigate matters, rather than pronouncing judgments.

I really wish there was a daily Q thread to allow for the disciples to exchange info and ideas without confusing those of us who don’t want to engage in Q theories. Scrolling past isn’t always the solution because not all Q theories are identified as such. Much like the parody tweets. At times I am fooled when they are not identified. I have gotten complacent here at CTH and too often assume posts are truthfully representative of subject matter. 😪

      It took me many months longer than it should have to become a regular reader on this site because the first few times I visited, I got promptly found myself swept into one or other of the Q rabbit holes. Each time, I came out with the conclusions that although Q is extremely knowledgeable about things that I’ve long felt need to be part of the wider discussion, the author’s self-regard and claims to “inside knowledge” are profoundly inconsistent with the professional bearing we see in the writings of Sundance, and some of the more prominent, illuminating commenters (e.g. flep, tracybeanz to name a couple) here.

      Ironically, I agree with a great deal of the Q message. I’ve spent far too many years admiring Sessions’ way-above-average work as a Senator to believe he’s suddenly been transformed into a bumbling incompetent in his current role. I work in private industry in a position that often requires me to keep secrets for many weeks and months … occasionally years. Every once in a while, I have to bite my lip and give my employees unsatisfying answers to good questions when I know the outline to a solution but the details are still being negotiated. The appointment of Huber gives me great confidence these I.G. investigations aren’t going to be swept under the rug.

      I’m agnostic on whether Trump is actually peeved at Sessions or just ginning up a misdirecting narrative when he tweets critically about him. The president thrives on unpredictability. I know I’m not inside his head. Anyone outside his innermost circle who thinks they are is deluding himself.

      Anyway, here’s looking forward to some amazing revelations in the report today. I do think it’s going to go beyond Comey and Strzok and involve Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch. But I’m just guessing. So is Q.

      Star’s guide to the economy. Tip #1. If trade deficits don’t matter, as you are constantly told by the MSM, why are all these countries TOTALLY freaking out when President Trump demands a reduction in the surplus they run with us? It’s not supposed to be a big deal, right? Trade deficits aren’t anything to worry about, right? We shouldn’t care, right? Why do other countries see it as life and death?

          Cheney famously said, “Reagan proved deficits don’t matter.” When Reagan took over, the national debt was just below $1T. Now it’s over $20T. ($60K per capita). It doesn’t matter (politically) until it DOES matter financially. All those hedge fund billionaires who make money by bettting on the fall of currencies will show us why they matter, as soon as they can engineer a run on US Treasuries.

          Here’s an idea – to reduce the national debt, let’s impose a new tax on Facebook, Google, etc., on income they generate from selling data and it’s derivatives collected from US citizens without paying them fair value for it (i.e., for using “free” apps, social media, etc.).

          I don’t think Mark Zuckerberg should get most of the value derived from my wife and daughters’ time spent on social media. Why not tax that SOB to put much of that value to work for our citizens?

    I discussed the NK agreement with my 15 year old granddaughter and her friend when they came here after school the other (historic!) day. Her friend’s reaction was her hand flying to her mouth, and “omg, we’re not going to die”. She lived in fear that we would be nuked by North Korea.
    Seriously. Scared to death at 15. She is just your average child, not a drama queen as many are at that age. She truly believed and feared.
    My GD was shocked at the news. They are studying North Korea in school, and she knew more than I did about the history of the regime, how the people live. And her question was how will this affect that country’s people. I answered that this was a huge step towards a much better life for all there, that time will tell, and that I and millions of Americans are thankful and hopeful.
    It was an amazing conversation…

Many will be replaced, confirmed, starting the road back to the rule of law for all. Not a separate one for friends and money changers.

        There’s definitely something wrong with Sessions. He seems completely unaware of problems with Rosenstein and has repeatedly praised him, and has shown no interest in prosecuting McCabe or Comey.

        Gigantic crimes have been committed and Rosenstein is determined to cover them up. And Sessions is absolutely clueless. It’s alarming.

        Also, like Lynch, he’s deferred his decisions to others. This is also a problem.

        Deja vu all over again here at CTH.

        You could go back to the Presidential threads of the last few months and find these exact speculations about Sessions made in pretty much the same order, even by some of the same people (I did not check, but there’s an overwhelming sense of familiarity), night after night, day after day, week after week. And to be fair, afterwards usually follow the pro-Sessions rebuttals and a little more speculation, seasoned with a few personal attacks back and forth, and a whole lot of mostly unfounded certainty.

        No one yet knows the facts, nor will we for a while. But hey – this afternoon may actually give us some facts! That’s all I care about, that and sundance’s analysis of the facts, and VSGPDFJT’s actions. Maybe then, there will be some new speculation for a change.

        Until then, it’s like rewatching the movie Groundhog Day – minus the humor. 🤦🏼‍♀️

        Exactly PR. The new norm is passing laws to enforce laws already on the books and in a matter of a few years, we have been brainwashed to cheer when it happens. It’s the “No, I really really mean it ” legislative approach.

    Good Grief!
    A pair of Senate Democrats [ Sens. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., and Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill.,] introduced a bill Wednesday that would prevent President Donald Trump from unilaterally drawing down the American troop presence on the Korean peninsula – not necessarily because he’s said he will, but because they don’t want to rely on his word that he won’t.

    Other measures that also tie the president’s hands, but don’t go as far, are already closer to being passed as part of an essential military policy bill.

    The new legislation, from Sens. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., and Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill., would prevent Trump from withdrawing troops from South Korea unless the secretary of defense says it’s in the interest of national security and that it would not undermine the security of allies in the region.
    The only problem is.
    According to Article II, Section 2, Clause I of the Constitution, the President of the United States is “Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States.”

      Let them pass all the stupid, unconstitutional things they want. It will allow more to expose their true colors and irrational hatred before the mid-terms. There most likely aren’t enough votes to pass these things and should there be it won’t be enough to override a veto, not to mention the courts overturning based on the constitution.

    If Congress has it’s panties in a twist because the DOJ refuses to discuss ONGOING INVESTIGATIONS with ADAM THE LEAKER Schiff, they can just impeach Rosenstink. (As far as I can tell link the DOJ is complelled by law NOT to discuss ongoing cases and these attorneys darn well know it.)

    Came across this article from 2007, which Interviews Michael Horowitz. Some interesting quotes from the man who will be front stage today.

    Just keep in mind this is from 2007 when we was in the Criminal Division of the Department of Justice and previously assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.

    Talking about prosecutor experience: ““You need to have a strong résumé and strong credentials. But among the most important factors is whether the applicant has the experience, the maturity, the judgment, and the ability to go alone into court and exercise good judgment on behalf of the government of the United States and the office.””

    About Sentencing: “Part of determining the appropriate sentence, either in trial or through plea agreements, is seeking a level of uniformity in sentencing. Horowitz urges prosecutors to avoid extremes in sentencing and plea bargaining. Seeking the highest possible length of jail time is not always the best course.

    Likewise, when the facts of the case and the defendant’s history call for a stronger punishment, leniency should be avoided. Sentencing, says Horowitz, is a “momentous event in the criminal justice system.”

    This article also interview Eric Holder, funnily enough.

    Here are some snippets from our favorite AG: ““You should be a person who wants to make sure that the system works,” says Eric Holder Jr., former U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia and deputy attorney general and now a partner at Covington & Burling LLP. “The best people want to make sure that the system works for everybody and that justice is ultimately done. . . . You have to be prepared at times to apply your discretion and say that the better thing in this situation is to bring a lesser charge or, in some instances, to walk away.”

    “The best way to overcome insecurity and build confidence in the courtroom, practitioners agree, is to prepare one’s case thoroughly and master the subject matter. “The best criminal lawyers make it look easy . . . because they worked so hard before they got to court,” Holder points out.”

    “You’ve got to have more than book knowledge,” says Holder. “You’ve got to really have a sense of how people live and what are stressors in their lives.”

    Here’s the article, worth a read:

      If you look at the “indictment” spreadsheet read what would be footnote #3. It says sealed court proceedings and not indictments. This can include some of the following search warrants, cases with minors, and fraud cases. You would need someone familiar with the US Attorney’s Offices to understand what is happening

    Prior to the 2007 Presidential election I was sleepwalking when it came to politics. When Obama was elected I was “Oh Sh*t!” how did this happen?! I had to start digging on the internet & learn what I could. That involved a lot of sifting through ‘conspiracy’ talk. Now 10 years later there’s a lot of discussion about Q. I view the Q discussion boards as a catalyst for waking up a lot of people from their political stupor. Think about how many people will be down loading a government report this afternoon – people who probably never even knew or cared about government Inspector Generals until recently. There will a lot of people who were bored in school, yet are eager to dive deep into a government report. Its crazy laughable in a wonderful HOOYAH God Bless America way. If Q helped energize people to get involved, to get active and fight for America then it served a good purpose in my mind. God uses all people to serve His purposes, so who am I to say that Q isn’t part of God’s plan to save America

        Obama stirred up a Cold Anger movement. God knew it would take a HUGE outpouring by Americans to overcome the MSM and entrenched globalists. I often ponder the question ‘What if Romney had won in 2012?’ I believe if Romney had won, the USA would still be in a decline, a slower decline than under Obama, but a decline nevertheless. The MSM and the Establishment would have fought Trump as much whether he ran against an incumbent, i.e Romney as they did with Hillary. I think if Romney had won, a lot of people would have continued to drift in a semi-asleep mode while the country continued to decline. So yes, I believe that God used Obama to wake up many Americans
