Your Five Favorite Posts of 2018 and a Special Honorable Mention

2018 was a very down year for me, It was the 1st year since 2014 that my traf­fic dropped although this year’s 22% drop pales next to ’14’s 54% it’s quite a dis­ap­point­ment after three straight years of 10% growth or better.

Bad year or no there were post that lead the rest and in this post we cel­e­brate the five most pop­u­lar post of the year and an inter­est­ing hon­or­able men­tion from times past.

  • #5 Last Days of the Euro­pean Christ­mas Mar­kets by Baldilocks 1215

This is the first of three from our record break­ing Decem­ber that saved the year’s traf­fic and our 2nd best since Dec 2013 and the topic is the end of the Euro­pean Christ­mas mar­kets court­sey of Islamic ter­ror and “migrants”

I’m not see a ramp-​up pat­tern, but, like Mark, I’m won­der­ing what will be the final state of Christ­mas Mar­kets in the coun­tries which have fol­lowed the EU man­date that mem­ber nations are to “allow” per­sons from Islamic coun­tries to seek refuge.


The EU hon­chos knew — from expe­ri­ence — that peri­odic ter­ror attacks would be part of their refugee man­date. I con­tend that this is a fea­ture and not a bug in their plan. They don’t “lack the will” to do any­thing about it; what we are see­ing
is their will.

To the Mod­ern Left Chris­tian­ity has always been the great enemy who must be defeated even at the cost of their own lives.


  • #4 Secret Weapon by Baldilocks 12818

The 2nd of three appear­ances of Baldilocks on this list and the 2nd from Decem­ber. Here Juli­ette writes about the FBI and gov­ern­ment being the tar­get of a sting:

The real whistle­blower, who has ALL the mate­ri­als in hard copy – and is being pro­tected – is another per­son, a sec­ond whistle­blower, as revealed by John Solomon on ‘Han­nity’ on 30 Novem­ber, 2018.
And who is turn­ing up to Con­gress, if reports are to be believed, next week.
Who­ever ordered the raid was deceived and is now exposed. And if I’m cor­rect, it was by Trump’s spooks.


More infor­ma­tion about the FBI raid
here.
If this spec­u­la­tion is true, it’s a mind-​blower. The rest of the blog post is even more fas­ci­nat­ing.
You might be ask­ing, “if this is true, why is Quod Verum post­ing about it and why are you shar­ing it?” Well, again, it’s mere sup­po­si­tion and it’s over. And the point is that sell­ing woof tick­ets on Twit­ter — or any­where else — is almost use­less; it’s secure plan­ning, exe­cu­tion that mat­ter. Oh yes, and decep­tion. Like the man said: all war is deception.

If this is cor­rect it’s one of the most sig­nif­i­cant sto­ries of the year and will prove big­ger as time goes by.


#3 Dat­e­chGuy Reads the Mueller Indict­ment Some Fun Facts (expect Updates) Where’s the Beef 21618

My first post on the list and the first before Decem­ber was a bit lucky as the Mueller Indict­ment came out at a moment when I had time to read it and com­ment at once:

sec­tion 30d notes a defen­dants’ trip to Atlanta for four days in 2014 and the sub­mis­sion of an expense account to his bosses, quelle horror!

Sec­tion 34 will get ignored a lot as it notes that the groups posed as black lives mat­ters activists, mus­lim activists, chris­t­ian activists, bor­der activists and groups like “south united”. This sug­gests they were play­ing all sides which won’t fit the media narrative.

Sec­tion 35 notes they spend “thou­sands of dol­lars of US dol­lars a month” on social media ads. Seri­ously THOU­SANDS of Dol­lars a month? Are you kid­ding me?

sec­tion 41 talks about iden­tity theft includ­ing social secu­rity num­bers, again this could be a charge of against the DACA kids.

There is noth­ing that dis­cred­its the entire Mueller inves­ti­ga­tion bet­ter than the actual fil­ings vs the media spec­u­la­tion about it.


Both my final entry on the list and the final item from a pop­u­lar Decem­ber focused on the left hit­ting the Knights.

I’ll wager that if you go into the his­tory of the Demo­c­rat party you’ll find an awful lot of Knights of Colum­bus mem­bers (Could you imag­ine Nancy Pelosi’s dad or Tip O’Neil denounc­ing the Knights?) but this is the mod­ern Demo­c­rat party and in this brand new ver­sion of the party if you are a believ­ing Catholic you are the enemy.

The Democ­rats are not so much a sec­u­lar party as an anti-​christian one and Pope Fran­cis not with­stand­ing the Catholic faith is the only Chris­t­ian denom­i­na­tion which hasn’t played with doc­trine to suit the left.


Before we get to #1 let’s briefly list the rest of the top 10

All these posts were good but when I looked at the top posts of the year the most inter­est­ing entry was the post: Doc­tor Who Goes SJW Ghost­busters so after 41 years I’m Done. That it cracked my top 25 (23rd) was inter­est­ing because of the date it was writ­ten; July 16th 2017

Now Mr. Chib­nall is a good writer (Borad­church sea­son 1 & 2 are excel­lent sea­son 3 so far meh) and Ms. Whitaker is a pass­able actress so I don’t doubt that there will be some inter­est­ing sto­ries, in fact I pre­dict that the first half Ms. Whitaker’s first sea­son will do quite well rat­ings wise, maybe even well in terms of mer­chan­dis­ing, how­ever I sus­pect by the 2nd sea­son it will be Sylvester McCoy and 1989 all over again, but the BBC will do their best to ignore it because they can’t let the first female doc­tor fail. They’ll retain quite few of the older view­ers and a good part of the cult fan base, but in the end instead of national and inter­na­tional insti­tu­tion that gets kids and their fam­i­lies and hold them for gen­er­a­tions, it will become just another BBC Drama.

As the BBC has elim­i­nated the Christ­mas Spe­cial, moved it to New Years Day 2019 and made it the ONLY Doc­tor Who episode for 2019 I can see why this post has drawn inter­est. Accord­ing to my son there are only two episodes of this sea­son that I would rec­og­nize as Doc­tor Who but as I’ve watched exactly 0 min­utes of the sea­son it doesn’t really matter.


And now the #1 post of the year it comes from May 1st of 2018 and is Baldilocks 3rd entry in the top 5 and fifth in the top ten titled:

Kanye Has Them Shak­ing in Their Boots

Back in 2003, when I started blog­ging, con­ser­v­a­tives who are black were very pop­u­lar. They (we) are now also, because we still are so few in rel­a­tive numbers.

And, for the most part, we were and are reg­u­lar cit­i­zens. Even the very pop­u­lar Can­dace Owens, Dia­mond and Silk, and Ter­rance Williams – per­sons with elo­quence and/​or humor – began as every­day per­sons who used tech­nol­ogy and their gifts to make their points and express their sup­port for Don­ald Trump and for con­ser­v­a­tive ideas.

And this is what makes long-​time Trump sup­porter Kanye West dif­fer­ent from the rest of us who refuse to toe the Demo­c­rat line. His hip-​hop com­posed plat­form was already built. All he had to do is climb up and begin to speak. In his case, mere agree­ment with Owens began an avalanche.

Neu­tral­iz­ing West was impor­tant enough to allow actual phys­i­cal threats were made upon him

Many con­ser­v­a­tive observers have pre­dicted that West will be pushed back into line, and, indeed, the attempts have already been made. A mem­ber of the Crips – that long-​time ter­ror­izer of law-​abiding black and other South­ern Cal­i­for­ni­ans — has warned West to stay out of Los Ange­les and Long Beach. Or else.

I think the threat was the most impor­tant part of the story and it’s real sig­nif­i­cance is this: If a man as pub­lic as Kanye could be threat­ened with­out cost how safe would the aver­age black amer­i­can feel in pub­licly sup­port­ing Trump?

2018 was a very down year for me, It was the 1st year since 2014 that my traffic dropped although this year’s 22% drop pales next to ’14’s 54% it’s quite a disappointment after three straight years of 10% growth or better.

  • #5 Last Days of the European Christmas Markets by Baldilocks 12-15

This is the first of three from our record breaking December that saved the year’s traffic and our 2nd best since Dec 2013 and the topic is the end of the European Christmas markets courtsey of Islamic terror and “migrants”


I’m not see a ramp-up pattern, but, like Mark, I’m wondering what will be the final state of Christmas Markets in the countries which have followed the EU mandate that member nations are to “allow” persons from Islamic countries to seek refuge.


The EU honchos knew — from experience — that periodic terror attacks would be part of their refugee mandate.  I contend that this is a feature and not a bug in their plan. They don’t “lack the will” to do anything about it; what we are seeing 
is their will.

To the Modern Left Christianity has always been the great enemy who must be defeated even at the cost of their own lives.


  • #4 Secret Weapon by Baldilocks 12-8-18

The 2nd of three appearances of Baldilocks on this list and the 2nd from December. Here Juliette writes about the FBI and government being the target of a sting:


The real whistleblower, who has ALL the materials in hard copy – and is being protected – is another person, a second whistleblower, as revealed by John Solomon on ‘Hannity’ on 30 November, 2018.
And who is turning up to Congress, if reports are to be believed, next week.
Whoever ordered the raid was deceived and is now exposed. And if I’m correct, it was by Trump’s spooks.


More information about the FBI raid 
here.
If this speculation is true, it’s a mind-blower. The rest of the blog post is even more fascinating.
You might be asking, “if this is true, why is Quod Verum posting about it and why are you sharing it?” Well, again, it’s mere supposition and it’s over. And the point is that selling woof tickets on Twitter — or anywhere else — is almost useless; it’s secure planning, execution that matter. Oh yes, and deception. Like the man said: all war is deception.

If this is correct it’s one of the most significant stories of the year and will prove bigger as time goes by.


#3 DatechGuy Reads the Mueller Indictment Some Fun Facts (expect Updates) Where’s the Beef 2-16-18

My first post on the list and the first before December was a bit lucky as the Mueller Indictment came out at a moment when I had time to read it and comment at once:

section 30d notes a defendants’ trip to Atlanta for four days in 2014 and the submission of an expense account to his bosses, quelle horror!

Section 34 will get ignored a lot as it notes that the groups posed as black lives matters activists, muslim activists, christian activists, border activists and groups like “south united”.  This suggests they were playing all sides which won’t fit the media narrative.

Section 35  notes they spend “thousands of dollars of US dollars a month” on social media ads.  Seriously THOUSANDS of Dollars a month?  Are you kidding me?

section 41 talks about identity theft including social security numbers, again this could be a charge of against the DACA kids.

There is nothing that discredits the entire Mueller investigation better than the actual filings vs the media speculation about it.


Both my final entry on the list and the final item from a popular December focused on the left hitting the Knights.

I’ll wager that if you go into the history of the Democrat party you’ll find an awful lot of Knights of Columbus members (Could you imagine Nancy Pelosi’s dad or Tip O’Neil denouncing the Knights?) but this is the modern Democrat party and in this brand new version of the party if you are a believing Catholic you are the enemy.

The Democrats are not so much a secular party as an anti-christian one and Pope Francis not withstanding the Catholic faith is the only Christian denomination which hasn’t played with doctrine to suit the left.


Before we get to #1 let’s briefly list the rest of the top 10

All these posts were good but when I looked at the top posts of the year the most interesting entry was the post: Doctor Who Goes SJW Ghostbusters so after 41 years I’m Done. That it cracked my top 25 (23rd) was interesting because of the date it was written; July 16th 2017

Now Mr. Chibnall is a good writer (Boradchurch season 1 & 2 are excellent season 3 so far meh) and Ms. Whitaker is a passable actress so I don’t doubt that there will be some interesting stories, in fact I predict that the first half Ms. Whitaker’s first season will do quite well ratings wise, maybe even well in terms of merchandising, however I suspect by the 2nd season it will be Sylvester McCoy and 1989 all over again, but the BBC will do their best to ignore it because they can’t let the first female doctor fail. They’ll retain quite few of the older viewers and a good part of the cult fan base, but in the end instead of national and international institution that gets kids and their families and hold them for generations, it will become just another BBC Drama.

As the BBC has eliminated the Christmas Special, moved it to New Years Day 2019 and made it the ONLY Doctor Who episode for 2019 I can see why this post has drawn interest. According to my son there are only two episodes of this season that I would recognize as Doctor Who but as I’ve watched exactly 0 minutes of the season it doesn’t really matter.


And now the #1 post of the year it comes from May 1st of 2018 and is Baldilocks 3rd entry in the top 5 and fifth in the top ten titled:

Kanye Has Them Shaking in Their Boots

Back in 2003, when I started blogging, conservatives who are black were very popular. They (we) are now also, because we still are so few in relative numbers.

And, for the most part, we were and are regular citizens. Even the very popular Candace Owens, Diamond and Silk, and Terrance Williams – persons with eloquence and/or humor – began as everyday persons who used technology and their gifts to make their points and express their support for Donald Trump and for conservative ideas.

And this is what makes long-time Trump supporter Kanye West different from the rest of us who refuse to toe the Democrat line. His hip-hop composed platform was already built. All he had to do is climb up and begin to speak. In his case, mere agreement with Owens began an avalanche.

Neutralizing West was important enough to allow actual physical threats were made upon him

Many conservative observers have predicted that West will be pushed back into line, and, indeed, the attempts have already been made. A member of the Crips – that long-time terrorizer of law-abiding black and other Southern Californians — has warned West to stay out of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Or else. 

I think the threat was the most important part of the story and it’s real significance is this: If a man as public as Kanye could be threatened without cost how safe would the average black american feel in publicly supporting Trump?
