      Sorry AdRem if the link in my previous post was against the rules.

      I am not affiliated with the company in the link in any way other than a new customer as of today.

      I simply thought the media and all of the #FlatCurvers and #MaskShamers (not disparaging or including people who wear masks per their safety concerns or their Dr. recommendation) could get the tables turned if we all started wearing the tactical type neck gaiters with President Trump’s likeness and American Flag wherever the leftist are requiring them.

      Lord knows making political donations to the feckless complicit GOPe, will not help President Trump or further the needed discussion with our fellow Countrymen to turn the tide against this Maoist insurrection we are currently suffering through.

      The website for the company says the product is all American made.

      The intent is to turn the mask requirement against them much like President Trump made them eat their “Fake News” label with a side of crow!

      Thank you for your, consideration.

      Also the media will talk about the number of ‘visits’ to Golf Courses that Trump does. They don’t say he is actually playing golf. He could be meeting people or having a meal and not playing at all.

      Mark Knoller (CBS News White House Correspondent) tweeted today: “In response to Pres Trump’s tweet on his golfing, my numbers show he has made 193 visits to his or other golf clubs/courses, spanning all or part of 258 days.

      At same point in presidency, Pres Obama had played 102 rounds of golf.”

      Notice the careful wording. He doesn’t actually say Pres. Trump was playing golf those 258 days, where as he’s very clear about Obama’s numbers.

      He also doesn’t talk about when the White House was having renovations to the West Wing and Trump just moved out, I think to his club in NJ and set up a working area for himself and staff.

    One more contemporary Irish hymn.

    It’s one I call a lullabye for adults.

    Still, my soul be still
    And do not fear
    Though winds of change may rage tomorrow
    God is at your side
    No longer dread
    The fires of unexpected sorrow

    God, You are my God
    And I will trust in You and not be shaken
    Lord of peace renew
    A steadfast spirit within me
    To rest in You alone

    Still, my soul be still
    Do not be moved
    By lesser lights and fleeting shadows
    Hold onto His ways
    With shield of faith
    Against temptation’s flaming arrows

    God, You are my God
    And I will trust in You and not be shaken
    Lord of peace renew
    A steadfast spirit within me
    To rest in You alone

    Still, my soul be still
    Do not forsake
    The truth you learned in the beginning
    Wait upon the Lord
    And hope will rise
    As stars appear when day is dimming

    God, You are my God
    And I will trust in You and not be shaken
    Lord of peace renew
    A steadfast spirit within me
    To rest in You alone

    I rest in You alone
    In You alone

    Friends,

    So I just wanted to say how sorry I am that all along, I have been wrong about Stanley.

    Ms. Stanley Ann Durham was not a radical student / citizen, who had ill will toward the United States of America, or a CIA operative with questionable motives as I previously thought and wrote about in some posts her. In fact, Stanley was not a radical, but rather a “radical thinker (my words)”, who was out to change the world with compassion and creative action.

    Please see the following:

    Now you know why her son, President Barrack / Barry Husein Obama / Soetoro received the Noble Peace Prize for all of that community organizing and peace he brought to us all. The apple truly does not fall far from the tree.

Stanley was a loopy fruitcake who virtue signaled her “enlightened” outlook on life by sleeping with various third world Muslim men of color and eventually dumped her kid Barry with her commie parents in Hawaii so she could flit off and do some more of her “work” without having to care for her kid.

        Clivus Multrum and Bigbadmike,

        Yeah, I would agree with you both; however, Stanley was a but smarter than we are giving her credit for. She was a highly trained (languages are just the tip of the iceberg) CIA operative, who floated in many circles including the CPUSA.

        Barry’s alleged daddy, Mr. Barrack Obama Senior was brought here by a CIA program. Barry’s real daddy was a CPUSA member, and like the Reverend Al Sharpton, was an FBI informant for the lucre.

        When she dumped her kid, she was dumping him with a lifelong CIA couple, that had very strong ties to the CPUSA (as many, not all, CIA and intelligence agents do). They raised a cutout in an extremely affluent manner (location – some what; education – elitist) that could normally be considered “white privilege” by the current BLM / ANTIFA members.

        As we know, Barry then went on to an elitist education that may or may not have ever been completed, but looks good on the old CV.

        Yes, Clivius, I would agree 110% that she did just want to “flit off and do more of her work”, and yes, mike they are all fly feces.

        Thank you both for contributing.

      • I had read she was mentally ill; perhaps schizophrenic or maybe manic depressive. She was nuts. She always had an attraction to men of color. She worked for the Ford Foundation, CIA, and Obama’s so called father was also CIA, Ford Foundation. And a lousy mother.

        Also, I always thought it was very strange that Obama’s grandmother died the day before his inauguration…do you know any grandmother who would not hang on to the bitter end so she could witness that? I heard she was very outspoken and that O’s half sister cared for her so I assume she killed her off.

          I could be wrong, but I remember his grandmother dying the day he was elected & she didn’t know he won.
          I thought it was weird he was too busy putting his cabinet together to go to Hawaii for her funeral.
          I remember him visiting her a week or two before the election (Michelle didn’t go which I thought was odd), I figured later that this was probably when she really died & they saved it to report on Election day so the media could use it to get last minute sympathy voters. I remember being disgusted with the media & him back then. I knew he was commie & the media covered it up.

          Like I said, I could be wrong , but that’s how I remember it. I’ve even tried searching info on his going to her funeral over the years & it appears to have been scrubbed.

    Despite ‘Decoupling’ Narrative, Companies Continue Flocking to China
    Lawmakers must do more to encourage shift in corporate behavior

    China’s Market ‘Liberalization’ Tempts US Financial Firms

    For financial institutions, the siren call of China’s market is a huge hurdle. Financial institutions, unlike companies in other industries, were mostly locked out of the mainland Chinese market until recently.

    Last year, Beijing loosened longstanding restrictions on foreign ownership of the Chinese financial sector, including brokerages, securities firms, and insurance companies. This recently has led to a huge increase in the number of U.S. companies flocking into China to take majority ownership of their local joint ventures.

    Wall Street investment bank Goldman Sachs received approval in March to take majority ownership of its Chinese joint venture, Goldman Sachs Gao Hua Securities Co. It previously had only a 33 percent stake. JPMorgan Chase received permission from Beijing regulators in June to begin operating a fully foreign-owned Chinese subsidiary.

    On the payments front, credit card issuer American Express in June received approval to operate a Chinese credit card clearing operation, becoming the first U.S. credit card issuer to enter the Chinese market. Competitors MasterCard and Visa have also applied and are awaiting permission.

    PayPal last year became the first foreign digital payments provider to receive permission to operate in China, a market currently dominated by Chinese technology giants Tencent and Alibaba.

    http://www.theepochtimes.com/despite-decoupling-narrative-companies-continue-flocking-to-china_3420930.html

    One area that was massively holding back China’s onshore capital markets was the quality of its rating agencies. Earlier this year, Fitch Ratings received a license to start a Chinese subsidiary to rate bonds in China, following the footsteps of S&P Global last year.

    The increased willingness to open China’s onshore financial markets to foreign companies may be one reason Beijing isn’t budging on imposing the national security law over Hong Kong. With enough foreign banks, investment firms, and payment providers in its fold, Beijing has less need for Hong Kong to act as a financial pipeline between China and the West.

    The reality is, U.S. officials and lawmakers have much work to do to keep U.S. companies home. If the administration is serious about reversing this ongoing trend, legislation and economic incentives—beyond rhetoric or moral obligation—must be established. And quickly.

    This is anecdotal, but illustrates the true cost of the Wuhan Flu shutdown. Probably similar stories in Washington state and throughout the Northeast. I’m not an ’empath’ (to use a nursing buzzword) but I have to admit I get very emotional listening to these horror stories.

    At any rate, my partner works in senior care as a nurse in Western New York. She has witnessed the onset of dementia in at least three residents who were functioning independent before the lockdown. It’s basically been a lethal cocktail of exposure to the nightly news combined \with draconian social distancing enforced in the facility.

    In March, one woman started pleading for assistance because she was convinced her grandkids were trapped and starving to death in some school with hundreds of other children, and this school was sealed off because of the deadly virus in New York City. Visitations from family had been prohibited from the middle of March until around mid-June so I imagine this narrative was basically an attempt to fill in the blanks from the abrupt end to her family visits.

    Another woman threw a chair through her bedroom window two weeks ago because she was believed there was an intruder knocking on the windows. This might have something to do with the ‘window visits’ that were allowed a few weeks ago.

    Yet a third woman who was elderly but fully functioning simply stopped eating about two weeks ago and was removed to palative care. Could be other causes, this could be a natural course that would have happened anyways but it occurred when these men and women were no longer allowed to sit at the same tables in the common areas. Apparently there was a staff disagreement about enforcement last month; my girlfriend is an ’empath’ for these residents and was given a citation for allowing two women to sit together so they could talk. The residents that already have dementia symptoms literally have to be told multiple times a day to stop social interactions.

    This isn’t some state-run facility. It’s a suburban complex that charges high admission for residents. … to basically wither and die in their final days. Literally sobbing because they can’t sit together on a bench with someone else.

    All I know is that if I was paying a premium to give an elderly relative a decent quality of life and I was told I couldn’t visit, or that they had to be sequestered alone in their room, I would be in prison for assault right now. 100 percent not going to lie.

    This hysteria is shameful. Governor Cuomo, the national media, Dr. Fauci, all of them. The “cure” is literally killing people.

    Maybe Sundance could make a separate thread about this … if not now then once the latest hysteria subsides and the nation emerges more fully out of these ‘safeguards’

    The truth deserves to be told.

    Mention of Ivermectin barely made this long video, discussed briefly at the last minute, shoved to next week, but implied it works very well.

    The video mentions that this virus or one just like it is not likely to have a successful vaccine because it does not respond well to that strategy. Confirmation of that is huge news.

    “HCQ and Ivermectin Work!” which is good news given this Frankenstein-Chimeric-virus likely has mutated and will likely hang around.

    Timothy Fuhrman had an employee, lead investigator Keith Baker, in the “bingo trial” / Victoryland (2011-2015) in Alabama.

    Baker apparently started an affair with a court reporter during this trial – ” a breach of ethics for Baker, a possible conflict of interest for both”.

    Montgomery Advertiser: “Included in that was the revelation that more than 8,000 text messages sent and received by Baker during a key period of the investigation had gone mysteriously missing from both his phone ***and the backup computer servers at FBI headquarters in Virginia.” ***
