Stormy Sunday!

And yet very MOTHERLY MOTHER’s DAY

While the focus here may be on volcanoes, earthquakes, tsunamis, and weaponized weather, there is a cozy place to go where reflections on the incredible mothers and other significant women in our lives has been launched by none other than our own amazing Daughnworks247.
Join in the fun here: Happy Mother’s Day to Doctor Lynn and Miss Lily.

What in the World is Going On?

For many decades the U.S. Military has been seeking to understand how to weaponize the weather. A paper written in 1995, Weather as a Force Multiplier: Owning the Weather in 2025, stated this in the abstract:

In 2025, US aerospace forces can ‘own the weather‘ by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war fighting applications. Such a capability offers the war fighter tools to shape the battlespace in ways never before possible. It provides opportunities to impact operations across the full spectrum of conflict and is pertinent to all possible futures. The purpose of this paper is to outline a strategy for the use of a future weather modification system to achieve military objectives rather than to provide a detailed technical road map.

A high risk, high reward endeavor, weather modification offers a dilemma not unlike the splitting of the atom While some segments of society will always be reluctant to examine controversial issues such as weather modification, the tremendous military capabilities that could result from this field are ignored at our own peril. From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather modification offers the war fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary. …

Technology advancements in five major areas are necessary for an integrated weather modification capability: (1) advanced nonlinear modeling techniques, (2) computational capability, (3) information gathering and transmission, (4) a global sensor array, and (5) weather intervention techniques. Some intervention tools exist today and others may be developed and refined in the future.

It would be wise to keep our hearts prayerful concerning our world’s weather. Since the election of President Donald J. Trump, we have seen some extreme and even bizarre hurricanes, wildfires, and other phenomena that one can only hope were not expressions of unconventional and unusual covert warfare.


Psalm 29

Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
A psalm of David:

Give Adonai his due, you who are godly;
give Adonai his due of glory and strength;
give Adonai the glory due his name;
worship Adonai in holy splendor.

The voice of Adonai is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
Adonai over rushing waters,
the voice of Adonai in power,
the voice of Adonai in splendor.

The voice of Adonai cracks the cedars;
Adonai splinters the cedars of the L’vanon
and makes the L’vanon skip like a calf,
Siryon like a young wild ox.


The voice of Adonai flashes fiery flames;

the voice of Adonai rocks the desert,
Adonai convulses the Kadesh Desert.
The voice of Adonai causes deer to give birth
and strips the forests bare —
while in his temple, all cry, “Glory!”

Adonai sits enthroned above the flood!

Adonai sits enthroned as king forever!

May Adonai give strength to his people!

May Adonai bless his people with shalom!


What Does This Mean?

Earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis and extreme weather have always been given spiritual meaning by those affected by them. These forces, when experienced up close and personal have a way of bringing into clarity how very small we are.

And that is just about the time we begin to look beyond ourselves for something bigger, anything that can help us give meaning to our suffering and regain some sense of safety.


Revelation 16:17-21

The Message (MSG)

The seventh Angel poured his bowl into the air: From the Throne in the Temple came a shout, “Done!” followed by lightning flashes and shouts, thunder crashes and a colossal earthquake—a huge and devastating earthquake, never an earthquake like it since time began. The Great City split three ways, the cities of the nations toppled to ruin. Great Babylon had to drink the wine of God’s raging anger—God remembered to give her the cup! Every island fled and not a mountain was to be found. Hailstones weighing a ton plummeted, crushing and smashing men and women as they cursed God for the hail, the epic disaster of hail.


Not even insurance contracts are atheistic with their “Acts of God” exemption clauses. Right or wrong, is it any wonder that we blame God?

But things are likely far more nuanced than this simplistic perspective. There is also a reason for “Acts of War” exemption clauses and a reason why warfighters talk about collateral damage.

definition of collateral damage

A quick search at Qmap.pub on the keyword, “weather” appears to only have 3 hits, and most likely for all three the term weather is a euphemism for warfare activity. However, it would be interesting to review the weather conditions following this post last June.
Qmap.pub post 1448

What Then Should We Do?

Earth phenomena intrudes on the “just and the unjust alike.” May I propose that for those of us that are drawn to pray for peace for the people of the earth–especially in the context of earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, extreme weather and related phenomena–that we learn to discern not only God’s heart, but also utilize available research material to develop our awareness of what is going on and how it all might be connected.
Image of slide showing 2 photos of toridal fields lines around a sun and a planet.
There is a large body of scientific work available for the curious mind–thanks to the internet–that past generations would never have had access to. And some citizen-analysts have used that access to not only become deeply informed, but to develop astute alternative working hypothesis about how things work, along with new predictive models. And–based on the push back–public access to their work might even be a threat to the controllers of the world.
As a prime example, may I recommend DutchSinse for not only big-picture, earth movement observations in near real-time, but also for his highly informed analysis.
https://twitter.com/dutchsinse/status/1125425034724556800
For almost a decade now Dutch has been finding correlations between not only solar activity and deep earthquakes, but earth movements and major wildfire activity, and also how deep earth movements lead to surface earthquakes with strong predictability, especially where there are breaks in the earth’s crust. He also gives basic disaster preparedness tips near the end of most of his videos. I find his passion for educating others along with his passion for accurate reporting of sensor data both engaging and entertaining.
If you would like to sample his work without taking up an hour or more for an entire video, the 8:30 min point on this May 6 video is a good place to start. Also, don’t forget, you can use the settings gear to change the playback speed to 1.5x (or higher). I often run his videos to the side of my main work so I can pay attention when I catch him saying something new or interesting about our earth’s current activity.

Apparently his observations make some of the FAKE SCIENCE shills uncomfortable. He’s had the typical harassment we have been seeing so frequently online including the demonitization of his YouTube channel.
I wonder who would NOT want us pray with understanding about what’s happening in and around our planet?

Day late and a dollar short – story of my life
(bet you’ve got a poem about that!)!
Are you caught up in life’s daily grind,
Always feeling you’re left behind?
Never seeming to get ahead,
But left chasing the pack instead?
Do you feel life passing you by,
Others home run while you pop fly?
A day late and a dollar short . . .
Is this you? Are you of this sort?
Maybe it’s time to look around,
Smell the roses and hear the sounds.
When you’re in the front of the pack,
You look ahead, not around or back.
But it’s around you that you find
Moments that bring you peace of mind.
Those little things that mean a lot
Are the gifts your life has brought.
A day in the park, a picnic, too,
Feeding pigeons until they flew.
Flying a little home-built kite,
Watching the fireflies’ blinking lights.
A small smile, the twinkle in her eye,
The time you watched those grown men cry.
Your dog greeting you at the door,
Hearing your cat peacefully snore.
Getting hugged by your teenaged son,
Being thanked for small things you’ve done.
All of these things, and many more
Are little things worth living for.
If you think you’re falling behind,
Just back off from the daily grind.
If you feel you’re coming up short,
Stop. Look around. You’ll see you’re not.
They’re all around you, all the time,
Those little things, like a fine wine,
In the glass, but not tasted yet.
Take a sip. You’ll never forget.

What a lovely poem,brought tears to my eyes.i learned from my cancer that life is good, I learned that God brought me to the end of myself so I could actually listen,really listen to him.what peace I have found from being very ill and having 2 years of not being able to talk ,learning to reflect on the Lord’s word .my life was changed forever while lying in bed watching out the window and just listening .It’s a rare thing to have that kind of opportunity to in the end appreciate the illness that brought me to the Lord.

Sue,
Your post is the grist from which poems spring – Be still and know that I am God.
Hopefully coming up in a few days. Thank you.

Weaponizing the Weather.
😳😬
It’s a scary thing to contemplate, isn’t it.
Scary to think that govts might do it…or already are doing it.
But we now have mega-billionaires who have the cash to pay for their own weapons of mass destruction.
That possibility is even scarier, considering what these twisted ultra-wealthy people are doing in other areas.
The Q-drop about…”False Flag weather alert World Wide”…had an ominous ring to it.
Was Q referring to ‘weaponized weather’ there?
Was there some dastardly event in the works that was thwarted by the good guys?
I guess we’ll have to just Watch The Show and hope that we don’t have to go through some scary parts.

holley100

This gives me great comfort t3. I am a dedicated weather watcher which includes not only the actual weather events, but how it is all being used to control us. It’s been an isolating experience because to speak out on what is happening in our skies tends to invite ridicule. Weather is connected to people’s childhoods (those are just jet trails, used to watch them as a kid), political affiliation, education level, etc. It’s very hard to get them to accept that it’s possible to engineer the weather.
For now I keep watching the skies and what the climate change advocates are up to here in NY with a flurry of new groups forming to impact legislation. It’s increasingly obvious what is going on here. “Bring it into the light!” Perfect! Also, thank you for this entire post.

Judge Jeanine had a good Opening Monologue in her Saturday night show:

Gil

With all the pets gone now, the birds have taken over in the backyard. We have for a couple years had a resident pair of doves but now the neighborhood is full. We at times have up to 12. The minor finches hide in the bushes and pop out throughout the day. Bluejays dive bomb for sunflower seeds. The occasional woodpecker stops in. A curious oriole has now come by for a bath and a snack. A hawk has nested across the street but circles overhead. 3 crows have been wondering where the hangout is, so I put out some fish crackers, which they ate.
Of course hummingbirds are always around and welcome.
I hadnt filled the feeder with all the flowers but a female has been buzzing by me out front everyday so I figured I best do it. Good thing I did.
For Mother’s Day, she built a nest right next to my front door, about 4 ft off the ground in a small palm tree. There are 2 little white jellybean eggs in it. So now no one gets to use the front door for 2 months unless its necessary. How cute is that?
My kiddo made me a little clay pot that he painted and is very proud of and a handmade card. Those are the best gifts.
To all you official and unofficial moms, Happy Mother’s Day! May your nest always be cozy and full of love wherever you decide it should go.comment imagecomment imagecomment image

GA/FL

Gil – I’m just wild about that hummingbird picture! What a beautiful nest…and those tiny babies…and the way that mother looks…it’s the sweetest thing I’ve seen in a long time!

Gil

They like to nest in v shaped spots and attach the nest with spider silk, i had to look it up. As long as she doesnt get spooked it will be neat to see the babies grow. I told kiddo we will save the egg shells if we can. She might make a new nest on top of this one if shes happy for the next 2 eggs.

GA/FL

What a neat person you are – I love the description of your yard and garden!
Hummingbirds are the most fascinating little birds. Our creator made a vast array of creatures – what an imagination! What a love of beauty and life!

bakocarl

And each of these . . . the little things that mean a lot!

Gil

Those babies sure are “little things”. The nest is about a 2 ounce measuring cup! Funny, just a bit smaller than my pot my son made me.

wheatietoo

Happy Mother’s Day, Gil!
😍💐🌷🌺🌻🍰
Hope you have a wonderful day with your loved ones.
Thank you for the lovely pictures!
Hummingbirds are such cool little birds.
My heart goes out to them…because they have to work so hard to survive.
They are very choosy about what they pick for their nests.
They seem to love moss and lichens…and other soft stuff like old fallen leaves that are decomposed to the point that they are lacy-looking, with only the veins remaining.
Whenever I run across things that look like what the Hummers might like for nest-building…I put them in an empty flower pot that I have sitting on a fence post, where they can find it.
😊
I love Hummingbirds.
Are your doves the Ring-Necked Doves?
Those things breed like rabbits.
There was a pair that arrived at our feeders, back in the 90’s…just two…and I had never seen that type of dove here before.
Within a few years there were hundreds of them.
The ring-necked doves are from Africa…so they are actually an invasive species in North America.
They are beautiful and have a lovely call.
But they compete for the same food sources as our native species of birds.
The Hawks and Eagles here have discovered the ring-neck doves, though…and are managing to keep them from overpopulating too much.

wheatietoo

As an aside…
The reason we have ring-necked doves across the country now, is because of the ones that have been released at weddings, etc.

Sylvia Avery

OH, I wondered where on earth they came from! They do have an interesting call. I keep an eye on the ones in our neighborhood.

thehawkeyehoneypot

Theres a dove season in iowa now. Sunflowers are a great attractant.

Gil

Same to you! No rings on their necks. Very plain except when they open their wings there is a shade of blue. The hawk has been eating rabbit but yes, maybe these doves too. Eveyone is local…

Sylvia Avery

Oh Gil, how wonderful! I love my small backyard. It is full of birds and bunnies and squirrels and I love to watch them. I am sad this year because my robins didn’t come back and nest in the trumpet vine by my back door. I’m going to have to fix it so it is ready and cozy for them next year. The hummers love that trumpet vine, too!
How sweet your boy made you a pot for Mother’s Day! And yes, those are the best things.

Gail Combs

A couple of weeks ago I was sitting in my truck waiting for someone to come home. I noticed a noisy chick-a-dee sitting on a branch not far from my truck. After a few minutes the bird finally decided it was safe and flew to the side of a fence post. She did this several times. Curious, I got out of my truck and made a wide circle to get a look at the other side of that fence post. Sure enough there was a 2 inch hole in the side of the post that she must have used to build a nest.
Since she was actively feeding her babies I did not go closer for a better look.

Gail Combs

We have anoles (Anolis carolinensis) who live on our front porch. I have often seen one perched near the lighted door bell of all places. We also have five-lined skinks although they are not quite as common.
Anoles can change color:comment imagecomment image
Skinks are quite pretty:comment image
Right now is turtle breeding season so I have been stopping and moving turtles a lot this past week. The last one was a young snapper ( Chelydra serpentina serpentina) that was not at all uncomfortable about being given a ride across the street and made no offer to bite. (They can remove a finger) The females goe wandering looking for nesting sites at this time of year.
Note the serrated keels on the back of the shell.

Gail, I had 2 Skinks in the sink of my outdoor kitchen. I released them. They are quite beautiful. It is nice to know what they are called.

Gail Combs

I am gland to hear you released them. I have rescued quite a few black snakes (unpoisonous constrictors) as well as bats from people who are afraid of them.
I think the black rat snake I rescued 15 years ago is still living in my barn. Black rat snake can lives between 10 to 30 years and get up to 7 or 8 feet in length. They are also known to climb trees.

Cuppa Covfefe

Two skinks in the sink… There’s a Dr. Suess rhyme/story in there somewhere 🙂

Sylvia Avery

IKR????
I’d never heard of them before, and never seen one either. The things we learn here!

singingsoul

We have skinks everywhere outside. On my patio and along the wall around my house and climbing on the arbor. When I had an outdoor cat , a stray that adopted us, the skinks were not seen much.
The dogs are out when I am out but the skinks are to fast for them but entertaining.
Cats will break off the tail of skinks and it grows back.
Last fall we had a field mouse in my container garden. The dogs and I were sitting under the arbor when I saw the herbs move and there was no breeze. The mouse was so cute and so fat.
We also have 5-6 deer visiting our front lawn and people stop to take pictures or just sit and watch them.
We never spray our lawn so we have weeds and I do not care and the deer like them. We also do not mind if they eat our flowers.
It is a cool day and I spent time finish planting my container garden. The Tomatoes are about 1 foot tall and have already little green tomatoes. The eggplants are setting blossoms , it was so nice cutting fresh herbs .
I cannot wait until harvest time but in the meantime I go out talking tending to my vegetables.
I like the cooler weather flowers do not only bloom a couple of days but the blossoms linger and I can enjoy them longer.
The Bees are very interesting to watch and specially the variety is astounding. Soaking in nature gives life and renews my soul.
Soon I can get up 4-5 am and sit outside and enjoy the stillness between the singing of birds before business of the day begins.

Teagan

Thanks for the photos. We have quite a community of skinks (that I thought were anoles until I saw your photos!) that come to our back kitchen door. We put out dried worms every day for some of the birds (chickadees, cardinals, towhees, thrush, etc). The door is glass so we (and the cat) enjoy watching them, especially when mother chickadee shows the new fledglings an easy source of food. If we are forgetful about putting worms out, the birds are quite vocal about reminding us. Now the cat walks over the the worm dish, turns around and meows at us also to remind! I digress….
The skinks love dried worms and usually come to eat the crumbs of the leftovers, but I often put their own supply out. We’ve watched babies grow into juveniles by the end of summer. One of our current regulars has a pink-reddish head that I assume has something to do with mating.
We live in a golf community so it’s quite populated although also very wooded so we have our share of wild animals, including a fox that comes every night. But my favorite, by far, are the male and female red-tail hawks that often perch on our fence or the trees in the side yard. Such magnificent creatures…I could watch them for hours.

‘” Now the cat walks over the the worm dish, turns around and meows at us also to remind! ”
How sweet that is! I love it! God’s creatures are so amazing aren’t they?
I have a pair of crows that I feed. They wait for me at a certain time of day. I call to them and feed. It started as a joke. I had been reading about how intelligent they are and how they recognize human faces and pass along to the crow community “good human” vs. “bad human.” I was remarking how smart they are and laughing that they would be taking over the world next and I wanted to get on their good side so I would feed them and make sure they got a good look at my face.
Well good heavens it worked. They aren’t real fond of my dog because she likes to run at them and bark, but when I walk the dog in my neighborhood they follow along at a safe distance from the dog, of course. What can I say, it entertains me.

Gail Combs

We have a family of crows that clean up the grain after I feed the goats. They also come each morning to the back yard when the dew is on the grass to look for bugs. We do not feed any of the wildlife. (except the fox that cleans up the cat food dishes each night) We have PLENTY of natural food available.
Actually I think the dragon flies are my favorites. I have seen them grab a 1inch plus black fly off the hood of my truck and fly away with it! Since we do not spray we had tons of them until the fire ants moved in. 😥comment image

My goats, living behind the house, are entertaining as usual. Yesterday I looked out and there was my black buck dosing in the sun, a doe near him also dozing with her two newborns safely sprawled between her and the buck.
As I watched two more moms cam over to lie down near the buck. Their babies, now three days old decided it was much too nice to sleep and woke up the other two. Soon there were five active babies using the buck and three does for mountain climbing practice. They would run up to perch for an instant on an adults back and them make wild half bucking leaps into the air as they jump off.
Not too long after a bunny decided to investigate the dish of salt and leftover crumbs of goat feed. A curious young doe soon was chasing that poor bunny all over the back paddock. She would walk up to within about five feet of the bunny and the bunny would hop away with the doe watching, ears pricked forward. Then the doe would stroll back over to the bunny and the bunny would hop away again. The doe kept it up until the bunny gave up and fled back under the fence.

Just now I heard our fox yipping at the front porch. Hubby reports that he has seen her with two young kits troting up the driveway.

Gil

Dr. Mrs. Doolittle you are. 😁

I love that. My uncle had goats when we were young. I used to love to visit him and help feed the goats. They were wonderful! If I close my eyes I can still feel what their heads felt like when I used to pet them.

Happy Mother’s Day Gil!
A few days ago, I was reading the Q tree, drinking my coffee when a hummer came to the window right by the table…every spring when they return, they stop and say hello and that’s my cue to put out the 4 feeders!
What surprised me most this year was that as soon as I hung the chain for one feeder, a finch flew onto it…and the hummers dive bombed it till it flew away…then chased it to a tree. there i saw them do their what I call their “fighting” dance–a side to side motion–until the finch flew off…
for Christmas this year, our granddaughter bought Grandpa 2 hand held feeders and he can’t wait to try them out!

Chris

We have 4’oclocks planted in the backyard, that return annually from seed pods that drop the previous season producing beautiful magenta colored 3″ trumpet flowers like clockwork by July 4th.
The humming birds of all kinds absolutely love’em .
Try planting some for a natural hummingbird gathering area.
Happy Mothers day to all you mothers out there !
Where would we be in this world without you?

Gil

Happy Mother’s Day Pat! Im going to add a hummingbird swing somewhere too.

cthulhu

Everyone always thinks of hawks and eagles as being rulers of the skies, but there are actually two other types of birds that no other birds will mess with — and they will tangle with raptors.
One of these is hummingbirds. They aren’t carnivorous, they don’t have talons, and their spiky little beaks won’t rend another bird asunder……but they can hover, do a vertical climb, out-accelerate other birds, and fly upside-down or backwards — meaning that spiky little beak can peck at the back of another bird’s neck as long as the hummingbird wants to.
The other type of bird that no other bird wants to tangle with is woodpeckers. It’s one thing to contemplate stirring things up with a mockingbird or jay — both birds might lose some feathers. But if a woodpecker gets one shot in, it’s likely to permanently damage a leg or wing.

Gail Combs

Whem we lived in Taxachusetts we had to dispose of out manure and could not compost it. I would put it in garbage pails and when I got a pick-up truck load haul it to a guy that grew experimental hybrid roses. He has some really pretty unique varieties.
Rochester New York has a really nice rose garden with many varieties too.

Teagan

Portland, Oregon…the rose city. Cannot imagine what the loony liberals have done to destroy the beautiful, traditional rose festival there. Haven’t been there but supposedly Tyler, Texas, is famous for roses.
But, the NZ photos above remind me more of the famous gardens in Victoria, BC.

I don’t know about weather control, other than the one publicly acknowledged, being cloud seeding to increase rain.
That has a rather pathetic record, so I am not going to lose any sleep over this issue. It is always scary to imagine that dark forces are plotting to destroy us with something exotic – when they have already infiltrated us at multiple levels, and our destroying our society from within.
That is something that I am devoting my efforts to understanding and resisting.

JasonD

My approach to these sorts of things is to remain sceptical until something awakens my engagement. Lots of people make lots of claims – I want some evidence before I engage. I find that this keeps me sane – there are endless things to potentially worry about. If the facts that I am aware of change – then I well re-look at it. This is my approach – not advocating anything for anyone else – or judging other approaches.

cthulhu

When it comes to manipulating the weather, I suspect that the technology lags significantly behind our ability to mitigate asteroid impacts. And that isn’t doing all that great. There is an annual exercise to game-out scenarios relating to asteroid impacts. This years’ (2019) version, humanity managed to stave off an impact near the center of the US that would have obliterated much of the Western US and would have had global consequences…….while leaving about 1/5 of the simulated projectile to directly impact NYC. https://news.yahoo.com/york-city-obliterated-asteroid-impact-205900957.html

That certainly seems possible and plausible, given the cloud-seeding techniques that have been around for a while.

We are currently in a Solar Minimum…and hurricanes should be fewer and less severe during a the years of a Solar Minimum.

Sometimes an attack simply doesn’t require a lot of high tech. California was able to weaponize DEAD WOOD against POTUS. Passive-aggressive destruction – one of the favorite tools of communists – always escapes blame the first time, and if people don’t wise up fast, it will work a second or third time.

California attempted to weaponize decades of tree-hugging stupidity against VSGPOTUSDJT. We’ll see how it works out in the long run. They’ve got a body-count, now.

Do not forget JoNova. She had quite a bit to say about the idiocy of the tree huggers in Australia where the eucalyptus is native.

….Eucalyptus trees are widespread in California and have been introduced to many other warm states. In California, the trees have spread so prolifically that there are entire woodlands almost completely made up of gum trees…..

On hot days in Tasmania and blue gum’s other native regions, eucalyptus oil vaporizes in the heat. The oil leaves a smoggy miasma hanging over the eucalyptus groves. This gas is extremely flammable and the cause of many wild fires. The natural detritus under the tree is resistant to microbial or fungal break down due to the oils. This makes the tree’s oil a wonderful antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory, but the unbroken down material is like using kindling to start a fire. It is tinder dry and contains the flammable oil. One bolt of lightning or a careless cigarette and the forest can easily become an inferno.
Fire Friendly Flammable Eucalyptus:
Trees Scientists speculate that flammable eucalyptus trees evolved to be “fire friendly.” Rapidly catching fire until there is no obvious tinder allows the plant to retain most of its trunk when fire moves on to find more to burn. The trunk can sprout new limbs and regenerate the plant unlike other types of trees, which have to re-sprout from the roots. The ability to retain the trunk gives the eucalyptus species a jump start on regrowing from the ashes. The plant is already head and shoulders above the native species when fire recovery begins. The eucalyptus trees easy recovery added with its volatile oily gasses, make it a potentially threatening species for California woodlands and similar areas known to house these trees….

EUCALPYUS THE WEED FROM HELL!

Genetically Modified Eucalyptus Trees Ignite Controversy
Eucalyptus trees are good for making paper. They are terrible for just about everything else – soil, insects, plants, and water. A paper company teamed up with ArborGen, a biotechnology organization, to genetically modify the trees to withstand freezing temperatures. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has just approved ArborGen’s request to plant various test forests across seven southern states.
Nicknamed “America’s Largest Weed,” it comes as no surprise that communities are worried about introducing the eucalyptus into new environments, which include 300 acres of test sites in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas.
…… Worse, they create toxic conditions in the soil and their canopies block out sunlight for underlying plants. They hog water and yet easily catch fire, relying on fire to spread their seeds …..

And not even a goat will eat it!
DesertYote mentioned a science fair project he helped with. In the USA the only species that did well (as in thrived) under the gum trees was Toxicodendron diversilobum, western poison oak. It is even worse than poison ivy.

….Eucalyptus trees are capable of bearing viable seed at maturity and have been invasive in several locations….. These plants are capable of 20 feet of regrowth in one year following cuttinghttp://www.crec.ifas.ufl.edu/extension/windbreaks/florida/irrec.shtml

Talking about weather tech – this snippet from my reply to Kalbo yesterday will possibly be of interest in the coming months …
“As to the energy tech – the reveal is part of a long story. To reveal now would greatly detract from the rest – because the rest deals with the bigger picture. It is all connected, strangely.
I can say that the tech works as a standalone or as a retro-fit to any existing thermal power stations, improving their efficiency. It can also deliver fresh water, through either condensate from the air, or through freezing sea water into ice, which is then obviously a supply of fresh water on melting.”
This may offer the potential for localised snow on demand, year round. We shall see. I hope for very sceptical engagement, when the time comes.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I’ll just put it this way…..
Based on things I know and things I figured out, I keep a wary eye on this stuff, for multiple reasons.
In particular, subversive forces are always looking for asymmetric advantage, and “weather guidance” is exactly that. Any understanding of “seeding”, initiation, butterfly effects and the like, is not only potentially of use in defense – it is likely to show up in sneaky offense by sides that prefer to put a knife into a “friend’s” back. Most of our current adversaries fall into that class.
It is not so much to have a perfect arrow any time you want. It is to be ready to pick up a broken but usable one whenever it may appear.

Eeep.
😬
At the 5:32 mark in the “High Bypass Turbofan Jet Engines” video…he says:
“…given the fact that the world is warming.”
It’s disappointing that he would say that.
We had a period of some high Solar Output with some solar maximum periods that were intense.
So we had people declare that ‘the world is warming’.
But now we’re in a period of Lower Solar Output…with some solar minimum periods that are lower than we’ve had in a long time.
So now those same ‘experts’ are declaring that ‘the world is cooling’.

Gail Combs

Well the earth does warm and cool… depending on changes in solar insolation and albedo. No need for human or CO2.
Here is an interesting theory not much discussed:

Every Interglacial and pseudo-Interglacial warming occurred during a precessional Great Summer season** in the Northern Hemisphere. We therefore know that the NH precessional Great Summer season (measured at 65ºN on this graph) is a critical aspect in the modulation of Interglacial warming periods. So just as the normal increased annual summer insolation in Canada melts the annual winter snows, to produce a NH summer, so the precessional Great Summer increased insolation in the NH melts the northern Ice Age glaciers to produce an Interglacial.
But it is also clear that increased insolation cannot produce an Interglacial on its own, because may of them ‘fail’. So there needs to be a feedback mechanism, and the true feedback is actually dust-albedo. So the true modulators of interglacials are:
a. A precessional Great Summer providing up to 80 wm2 extra regional insolation.
b. Dangerously low CO2 levels, causing widespread plant die-back.
c. Many barren lands produced, promoting worldwide dust storms.
d. Dust fallout darkening the ice sheets (dust always precedes Interglacials).
e. Dust albedo providing up to 190 wm2 extra regional absorption.
From this we can deduce that CO2 plays little or no role in the feedbacks that modulate Ice Ages. It is not global forcing-feedbacks that are important here, but regional insolation and regional albedo feedbacks in the NH that count….

Albedo Regulation of Ice Ages, Without CO2 Feedbacks:
https://www.academia.edu/16866736/Albedo_regulation_of_Ice_Ages_with_no_CO2_feedbacks
Clive Best has a really good summary of the “dust-ice-albedo” theory for ice age modulation – and therefore for global temperature control. It is not an idea that the establishment likes to talk about too much, but it is logical and likely….

All they would have to do if this true is stop the contrails, let the planet heat up, which will prove that their glorious models were supposedly correct with the temp projections, the climate deniers will be vanquished forever and we can sing kumbaya whilst tilling the fields by hand, paying homage to the greatness of Al Gore.
The fact that this has not been done says it all, IMHO

Elizabeth Carter

Wolfmoon, I have studied a lot about asymmetric warfare. It is quite real. Weather control has been around for decades.
What I know is that the USA is blessed by God. We literally feed the world. Allowing foreign countries to buy our land and fill it full of Monsanto type chemicals has been destroying our farmland. What they intended for our harm, God uses for our good.
I paid close attention to all the hurricanes after President Trump took office. He handled them beautifully. He pointed out how our people helped each other and provided government services as needed.
Puerto Rico is a fine example of how their leaders and supporters saw the disaster as a way to steal money from the USA and never even shared any of it with their own people. They let food we sent rot at the ports.
I don’t believe President Trump saw the storms as a surprise. It was asymmetric warfare. Then we had the fires in CA, etc.
I lived in CA for 25 years and loved the farms. I hated watching the NWO destroying them.
I watch and pray. I see what is happening with all of the floods the Globalists are unleashing on us. God is using them to help us and not to harm us by cleansing our earth with the very weapons they sent to destroy us. The floods clean all of the poison chemicals and salt residues out of the soil. The water leaches them out and new topsoil is put down in the aftermath.
It seems frightening and terrible when it is happening but when you see the difference it makes in the long run, it is a blessing. The amount of water being poured out on us is beyond anything we could ever do ourselves.
The huge snows are also healing our land.
Snow nitrogen soil
Snow is called “the poor man’s fertilizer, says Taylor’s Encyclopedia of Gardening. As it falls, a small amount of atmospheric nitrogen and sulfur are attached to the snowflakes and sleet particles. When the snow melts, it releases that nitrogen into the soil. Nitrogen is a crucial component of plant growth.
How many inches of snow does it take to put 1lb of …
http://www.kgbanswers.com/how-many-inches-of-snow-does-it-take-to-put-1lb-of-nitrogen-back-into-the-soil/…
While these processes are occurring, our farmers get to step back, pray a lot, clean up the mess, rest a little, and rethink the best uses for the soil and the types of food and animals to produce when they start over.
The rest of the world can’t get foods they have taken for granted because we can’t produce them for a while. We would never harm them deliberately by starving them. That is a Communist thing, not an American farmer thing. The Communists starve people all over the world because they are afraid of losing control. The American farmer feeds the world because they are good, loving people who share things so others can “:be best” in their own way and share what they produce with the world.
God Bless America
God Bless President Trump

Elizabeth Carter….was in the Peace Corpse in its infancy in Central and South America and it was a life-changing reality check to see deliberate control through limited sources of food, medicine, education, communication, etc. it’s only after bellies are full that people start craving other things. Africa, with all its natural resources, might be one of the best examples.
I lived and worked in Venezuela and it constantly amazes me how it’s people can be starving with easy access to the ocean, the llanos (vast areas of plains for livestock and farming), the jungles and rivers to the south, etc. all the elements are there, if properly used. But, I also remember it was as though we were working with kindergarten mentality trying to teach basic civic/community values working together for common benefits. We, raised in the USA, really have no concept of how the sense of “community” is taught from very early age (or, at least it WAS)…remember your teachers saying…”now as soon as everyone’s desk top is clear, we can go outside for recess,”? Or, how we always give to others…the entire notion of volunteerism is very rare in many parts of the world or the spirit of generosity in time of need.
All this to say, yes it’s all about control…some very overt examples such as China but perhaps more dangerous is what our own country has been subject to for the last few decades with the Deep State in the very federal agencies that are supposed to protect our interests.

Elizabeth Carter

Teagan, I lived in Fresno, CA around 1986. I walked into a shop that was run by a man from India. We started talking. He told me that he was a “throw away baby” in India. To survive, he used to wash windshields for the UK Ambassadors. One of them took a liking to him and sent him to school in England. He went from there to becoming a graduate of Oxford. They put him in charge of the food distribution for the UN. He laughed gently as he told me that they never had a problem getting plenty of food for starving nations. They did not have a problem of getting it there. They could even line up delivery trucks, but the governments in charge would do everything they could to prevent the delivery of the food to their starving people. It broke my heart. It was amazing to me that we talked for about an hour and his demeanor through the whole conversation was light and he often chuckled. I have always remembered that conversation. I guess when you grow up in a garbage can, your world outlook is a little different. He talked about all the things he would have to do in order to get the free food delivered for free to the starving people. It still makes tears in my eyes to think of our conversation. This was an important part of my education about the world we really live in.
There was a time when I would have joined the Peace Corps. I have since learned that the Narrative is very different than the reality.
My brother served in the front lines, Marine Corps, Vietnam in 1965. Our government would send them to take a hill. They would take it at the expense of many deaths. Our glorious leaders would make them give it back and send them to take it again the next day. He was very idealistic. He went in with 86 men and was 1 of the 4 that survived. He got sent home with a hernia that he told me only hurt when he laughed and he laughed an laughed. He went to Kent State on the GI bill and that was the year our homegrown Communists were burning the flag. He rescued our flag and took it to the authorities and nothing was done. At least our own authorities did not destroy my brother. That was the year they brought the National Guard onto the Kent State campus to put a stop to the Communist takeover of our country. By 1965, I was living in CA and Reagan had to call in the National Guard to stop the Communist takeover of Berkeley. Our men died in great numbers fighting the Communists overseas and in the mean time they were taking over our country from the inside. Hollywood and the MSM played major parts in helping the Communists destroy our country.
I know what you are saying. I had about given up hope that we could ever take our country back but now we are doing exactly that. I will extend to the Communists the same sympathy they extended to us. NONE.

Gail Combs

Elizabeth,
I agree with you.
We have to harden out hearts to these EVIL ONES who use our honesty and charity and sympathy against us and would kill us in an instant if they could get away with it.
Obama’s Friend Ayers: Kill 25 Million Americans
“…In No Place to Hide, Grathwohl explains that the Weathermen actually believed that they would be successful in overthrowing the U.S. government and that, with the help of the Cubans, Chinese, Russians, and North Vietnamese, they would occupy America. Americans would have to be “re-educated” in camps, similar to what the communists did in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, and other countries they had taken over. Here is one of the chilling revelations Larry Grathwohl made in the film:

I asked, “Well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?” And the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated.
And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.
And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.”
Twenty-five million people.
I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people and they were dead serious.

The population of the United States was 209 million in 1970 when the Weathermen were active so they were talking about killing 12% of the US population. That translates to about 40 million people today.

kalbren2r1

After my comment the other day about weaponization of weather I am liking this post and learned a lot. It is good to know that my tin foil hat is not short circuiting. I was beginning to think I was going to have to make a new one!

Elizabeth Carter

kalbren, I don’t know if it is still available, but when we had the WACO fiasco, our glorious Congress actually brought the Ohio state militia in to testify. C-Span filmed it. It must be part of the Congressional record filed in the dark by the DS.
The leader of the Ohio militia was one of those BLACK white supremacists. He was very well informed and very articulate. They put thousands of pages about weather control that was being done then, into the Congressional record. Their testimony was reasoned, researched and accurate. Of course, they were still trashed in the MSM and by our politicians. I watched it all. I think our political class figured that this black man would be as stupid as they are. I did not have the Internet then. I did watch days of it on C-Span and it was amazing. I was totally impressed and educated about things I had never even suspected. I spent time after that praying and paying attention to weather control, asymmetrical warfare and the Communist take over of our government. The Clinton’s and Bushes were overconfident then and they were in our face. Obama was made President to spit in our faces before we were sent to the FEMA camps for extermination.
One thing I wonder about now is why we don’t use those FEMA camps that were intended for Americas white (or other) Christians for the illegal immigrants? They even have thousands of caskets available there for what was intended to be their final solution to the USA problem – Genocide.

kalbren2r1

I know, I have been thinking the same thing. Why don’t they use the FEMA camps to house the illegals awaiting their day in court. Why spend more money setting up the tent cities.

Sylvia Avery

Thank you, Elizabeth. Very thought provoking.

RAC

It wouldn’t surprise me at all if it were possible to produce alterations in the weather and to be able to use that for bad purposes. The global warming mantra, which strangely enough in recent years has morphed into the extreme weather mantra, would make good cover for the hidden use of weaponized weather. And visa versa if weaponized weather alteration was being used it augments the global warming/extreme weather hysteria pushed by the globalists,( using implements such as the AOC tool.)

Gail Combs

“….The global warming mantra, which strangely enough in recent years has morphed into the extreme weather mantra….”
Actually the “extreme weather mantra” is what makes me think the Elite are well aware the Holocene interglacial is drawing to a close.
Neuman and Hearty tell us that during the interglacial to glacial transition “sea-level changes that were rapid and extreme” indicating the weather was very wild, a climatic “madhouse”!

Rapid changes in sea level and associated destabilization of climate at the turbulent close of the last interglacial maximum appear to be recorded directly in the geomorphology, stratigraphy, and sedimentary structures of carbonate platform islands in the Bahamas. Considered together, the observations presented here suggest a rapid rise, short crest, and rapid fall of sea level at the close of 5e.
The lesson from the last interglacial “greenhouse” in the Bahamas is that the closing of that interval brought sea-level changes that were rapid and extreme. This has prompted the remark that between the greenhouse and the icehouse lies a climatic “madhouse”!
http://www.researchgate.net/publication/249518169_Rapid_sea-level_changes_at_the_close_of_the_last_interglacial_(substage_5e)_recorded_in_Bahamian_island_geology/file/9c96051c6e66749912.pdf

The onset of the Little Ice Age occured right on time, when the Holocene reached about half a precession cycle old.
So why didn’t earth continue descending into glaciation?
Ice cores from the Freemont Glacier show it went from Little Ice Age cold to Modern Warming warm in the ten years around 1850 — Naturally.

ABSTRACT
An ice core removed from the Upper Fremont Glacier in Wyoming provides evidence for abrupt climate change during the mid-1800s….
At a depth of 152 m the refined age-depth profile shows good agreement (1736±10 A.D.) with the 14C age date (1729±95 A.D.). The δ18O profile of the Upper Fremont Glacier (UFG) ice core indicates a change in climate known as the Little Ice Age (LIA)….
At this depth, the age-depth profile predicts an age of 1845 A.D. Results indicate the termination of the LIA was abrupt with a major climatic shift to warmer temperatures around 1845 A.D. and continuing to present day. Prediction limits (error bars) calculated for the profile ages are ±10 years (90% confidence level). Thus a conservative estimate for the time taken to complete the LIA climatic shift to present-day climate is about 10 years, suggesting the LIA termination in alpine regions of central North America may have occurred on a relatively short (decadal) timescale.
http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/1999JD901095/full

Dr. Evans’ Solar Notch-Delay Theory predicts a delay of about 11 years from a change in solar conditions to a change in earth climate.
So what happened around 1840? Solar Cycle 8. It began in November 1833 with a smoothed sunspot number of 7.3 and ended in July 1843. Max sunspot number ~210. The prior Solar Cycle 7, began in May 1823 with a smoothed sunspot number of 0.1 and ended in November 1833. Max sunspot number ~105. And thus began the Grand Solar Maximum, highest in 3,000 years which has just ended.
http://www.solen.info/solar/cycles1_24.png
In the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics, Usoskin et al. “present the first fully adjustment-free physical reconstruction of solar activity” covering the past 3,000 years, which record allowed them “to study different modes of solar activity at an unprecedented level of detail.” Their reconstruction of solar activity displays several “distinct features,” including several “well-defined Grand minima of solar activity, ca. 770 BC, 350 BC, 680 AD, 1050 AD, 1310 AD, 1470 AD, and 1680 AD,” as well as “the modern Grand maximum (which occurred during solar cycles 19-23, i.e., 1950-2009),” described as “a rare or even unique event, in both magnitude and duration, in the past three millennia.” http://www.co2science.org/articles/V17/N32/C1.php
“This record also reveals that the transitions at the beginning and end of the interglacial spanned only ~100 and 150 years, respectively.” *http://www.pnas.org/content/104/2/450.full

I found it interesting that the “Explosive – Mueller/Weissman Entrapment trap” article OT, described RR supporters as “apologists” – and that’s okay if one believes, or it turns out to be that Rosenstein is dirty. But, it’s difficult to equate RR being a bad guy while believing that Barr is what we think he is – a very good man of Law.
He wrote his long opinion on the no obstruction on the part of POTUS 6/2018 – unsolicited – he made all the correct points of Law that vindicate POTUS. So, if Barr is supportive of RR, and he appears to be, how can RR be on the wrong side?
One other point. Brian Cates had a thread discussing who was in the room when POTUS met with Mueller – the day before Mueller was appointed SC. The thread is mostly about Sessions also being in the room. The point that relevant to me isn’t whether Sessions was present, but the thread brings up POTUS’ “not knowing” Sessions was going to recuse.
Sessions was asked, and he answered in his confirmation hearings, and was barely confirmed, if he would recuse on the Russian matter. He indicated he would. Maybe (and that’s a doubtful maybe) POTUS didn’t watch or pay attention to the salient points made during those hearings, but that his staff wouldn’t have told him???
That’s a riddle not yet answered for me.

Kalbo

Pardon the re-post, from late yesterday’s daily thread.
Interesting and puzzling…
The Epoch Times, The Untold Story of Rod Rosenstein
Video. ~30 minutes. Covers numerous aspects of RR over the past dozen or so years. Much we have recently heard, but not all.
– The last three or four minutes talks about his wife, Lisa Barsoomian…. 25.30 mark…
– Something to the effect Lisa Barsoomian and her boss, R Craig Lawrence were “Acting as Assistant US Attorney’s for the DoJ”…when they defended Mueller, Comey, hussein, Sebellius, slick willy and hildabest between 1991 and 2017.
– Yep RR wife, Lisa Barsoomian was working for DoJ, per this report.
– So DoJ contracts out Acting as Assistant US Attorney, when they need to?
– Puzzling after what I had understood from OT, maybe Q, and various other sources.
RR wife, Lisa Barsoomian…. 25.30 mark…
*https://www.theepochtimes.com/the-untold-story-of-rod-rosenstein_2916394.html
Thoughts…regarding Lisa Barsoomian?

ladypenquin

All of big puzzle. Somewhere Carlson explained something about RR’s wife, so that it wasn’t quite the bad thing we’d been told.
It isn’t just Barr treating RR well, but POTUS is no fool, and he certainly appears to have a positive regard for RR. A big puzzle.

Kalbo

Yes. Some how I totally missed this aspect of RR wife being an agent for DoJ..Acting Assistant US Attorney. Puts a whole different angle on Lisa, an aspect of figuring RR intentions.

ladypenquin

I just can’t see Barr treating RR with professional respect and warmth if things were amiss between him and the administration or even with POTUS. Notice they brought Sessions back – he hasn’t gone off into ignominy. Whereas some of POTUS’ other Cabinet members don’t appear to have returned to WH functions or events – unless I’ve missed them.

Kalbo

RR white hat, black hat aspect of my belief has transitioned from 400/400 to nearly 20/20. Any more, I can’t rationalize RR a black hat.

Sylvia Avery

LP, I agree with you.
I quickly read through the article OT and that bit about “apologists” stuck out for me, too.
I’ve long believed RR was part of the Cabal. Now I’m not so sure. My opinion of Sessions has shifted at times, but I continue to wait and see about him also.
In both cases, the narratives about these guys contain details that just don’t fit the picture painted of them no matter how hard we try. The only way to be decisive about them and their roles in the Coup is to ignore the things that don’t fit rather than continue looking for explanations.
Part of what tempers my judgment is believing that military intelligence is running the underlying operation for our side. They’d be stupid if they didn’t use deflection and counter moves and double agents and whatever other tools are at their disposal.
So when I read a judgment-laden statement about RR’s “apologists” it kind of ruins my reading experience. It seemed unnecessarily antagonistic and it assumes the author knows more than the author can possibly know. All he can do is speculate like the rest of us.
We need to let the evidence lead us to the truth and not work so hard to make the facts fit our pet theory of the crime. When pieces of the puzzle don’t fit, you don’t throw them away. You look for answers.

ladypenquin

Sylvia, sorry I’m late responding. Got caught up in Mother’s Day cooking – had a turkey – which hubby helped with, and grandbaby visited. 🙂
I think you and I think alike. The Explosive article was worthwhile for some content, but your reaction was similar mine, the take on RR – unnecessary, and assumes facts not in evidence. We all have theories, opinions, and some “facts.” Right now even “facts” might be suspect if they’re used for red herrings.
I’m looking at RR’s presence, his participation, and the regard and treatment he has received by people who we hold in high regard – that is shaping my opinion. I like Rosey more now than I did 6 months ago! 🙂

Sylvia Avery

It sounds like you had a wonderful day! I’m glad!
And yes, I’d say we agree on this. I know it isn’t conclusive by any means, but RR’s going away party seemed heartfelt, not just a cold careful send off for someone who was leaving in under a cloud. And Sessions was there. Hmm… I can’t just write those things off as if they never happened.
We’ll see when it all comes clear, but I’d sure avoid making statements like “RR apologists” at this point. But that’s me.

Disinformation is extremely effective. All they had to do was filter the right memes to their people here to “guide” the media and get those memes into the communist fake news.

Gail Combs

An item I saw in the WSJ, the spring of 1994 back page, said that the Kremlin was not only FUNDING US NGOs (think PETA, Sierra Club, Greenpeace…) but actually LEADING THEM. In other words KGB agents were in charge here in the USA. 😲 I did not cut out and save that article because I figured it would be FRONT PAGE NEWS, the fact that it was not covered, except as a few paragraphs buried in the back section of the Wall Street Journal, tells you all you need to know about the Communist run Fake News we laughingly call the MSM.
I would LOVE to see if I could find that article again.

I put this Amazing Polly vid up yesterday in response to a comment but it deserves stand alone attention since it shows MK Ultra work in action.— Remember Operation Paperclip where the CIA grabbed all those Nazi doctors doing human experimentation???
“How the CIA Broke America”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZGqDv-tuAM
Another really good video is: “Ruined People Ruined Culture – Roger Scruton & Post Black Pill Living.” Polly goes on to say our culture has already been destroyed. Once you accept that as fact, we can get on with the re-building
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9wmswrqexM
Imperator Rex @Quodverum says the same thing in his article: POTUS Hillary R Clinton : America’s Last President
Obama had set-up the police surveillance state and Hillary would consolidate power and transform the USA into a totalitarian dictatorship starting with the removal of the 2nd Amendment and any opposing voices. We already had a sheriff candidate here in North Carolina say he has zero problems with shooting those unwilling to give up their guns.
General Paul Vallely in his 3-17-14 List Of Military Elite Purged And Fired Under Obama says the same thing as Polly and Imperator Rex from a third point of view.

Since Barack Obama has been in the White House, high ranking military officers have been removed from their positions at a rate that is absolutely unprecedented. Things have gotten so bad that a number of retired generals are publicly speaking out about the ‘purg’ of the U.S. military that they believe is taking place. As you will see below, dozens of highly decorated military leaders have been dismissed from their positions over the past few years. So why is this happening? What is going on right now is absolutely crazy especially during a time of peace. Is there a deliberate attempt to reshape the military and remove those who don’t adhere to the proper ‘viewpoints’ ? Does someone out there feel a need to get officers that won’t cooperate out of the way?
Throughout world history, whatever comes next after a military purge is never good.
If this continues, what is the U.S. military going to look like in a few years?…

Cosmo writer is wrong as hell. A choice to abort changes the heart/soul – makes it more difficult to love and cherish anyone.
Since abortion was made legal – child abuse has risen exponentially – more than 600% – and that study was a decade ago. You can’t turn on the internet or news without reading about some horror inflicted upon little children…and women.
Nowadays, pregnant women are also the targets of unspeakable violence. Murder is the leading cause of death in pregnancy.

Abortion also leaves a ‘scar’ on the woman ESPECIALLY if as she grows older and marries she finds she can not have children. At one point (up to the 1970s) black women who had abortions were ALSO STERILIZED!!!

Between 1929 and 1974 in North Carolina, 7,600 people were sterilized. Eighty-five percent of those sterilized were women and girls, while 40 percent were minorities (most of whom were black). The eugenics program was eliminated in 1977 but legislation permitting involuntary sterilization of residents remained on the books until 2003.

AMEN.
I think the DSA should not be allowed to run for public office, AND that many Dems would fall into the same prohibition.
Any party which believes in SABOTAGE of government should not be in government, and its members should not be allowed to WORK for government OR run for office. DSA embraces this kind of thing openly, and we have many of their members admitting it on video.
KEEP THEM OUT.
We have restrictions against people who believe in VIOLENT overthrow of government being in government, but communists now use CRIMINALITY and SABOTAGE instead of violence. They use FORCE but not DEADLY FORCE. The prohibition needs to be ENHANCED and EXTENDED.

Some UFO’s turn out to be military aircraft in experimental flight. My husband saw the F-117 and B-2 silhouetted against the full moon when they flew over the bombing range in ND 3 years before they were in use. When he described and drew them people thought he was looney. Well, several years later they were publicly disclosed and no longer UFO’s. We had a friend of the family that was the highest placed civilian employee at the Minot Air Force Base during the 70’s and 80’s. He told us that the main line military personnel, let alone the public, has NO idea what the US military actually has and uses. Good to know that the white hats are back in control. So, weather weaponization, space force UFO type craft, and other unknowns are not beyond imagination. Of course black hats using Alinsky tactics will try and project, deflect, and shame us into believing it is all a “vast right wing conspiracy.”

And of course what better way to keep them secret than to let any chance sightings be thought of as ufo’s.

wow…hard to imagine! a tree 2,600 years old!
FTA:
Researchers, taking tiny core samples that don’t risk the life of the trees, knew that many of the specimens in the area were well over 1,000 years old based on previous research. Nevertheless, the scientists were surprised to find multiple trees that passed the 2,000-year threshold and a single tree, designated BLK227, which was at least 2,624 years old.
With numbers that large, it’s hard to really put it in perspective. For a bit of context, consider that BLK227 predates the reign of Alexander the Great by over 200 years. By the time the first Pilgrims arrived on the shores of the United States, this one particular tree was already over 2,200 years old. Yeah, it’s ancient.
“It is exceedingly unusual to see an old-growth stand of trees along the whole length of a river like this,” Professor David Stahle, lead author of the study, said in a statement. “Bald cypress are valuable for timber and they have been heavily logged. Way less than 1 percent of the original virgin bald cypress forests have survived.”

QUOTE:
Age : about 3,200 years
Location: Sierra Nevada, California, USA
Species: Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum)
Still Alive: Yes
The giant sequoia simply known as President is the the oldest-known living redwood tree. Based on volume of trunk, the President is the second largest tree in the world. The last time that President was measured, in 2012, its volume was about 45,000 cubic feet (1,300 m3), with an additional 9,000 cubic feet (250 m3) of branches. It is not the tallest giant sequoia with a height of 247 feet (75 m), which is about 30 feet shorter than the tallest known sequoia.
The President tree was named after President Warren G. Harding in 1923 and it is sometimes called the Warren Harding Tree. Although parts of its main trunk is dead, the President is still healthy enough to grow. It is one of the fastest-growing sequoias – it grew an average of 22.5 ft3 (0.64 m3) and 700 lb (318 kg) each year over a recent decade.

I watched a documentary on bristle cone pines yesterday. They are protecting the location of the oldest tree they have ever found, but it is nearly 5000 years old. Like, more than 4,900 years old – I think I remember him saying 4,964 and the video was about 10 years old. They spoke a lot about Methuselah, the former known oldest tree, and he was 71 years old when the Great Pyramid accepted its occupant, Cheops. This un-named and secret location tree is several decades older than Methuselah.

The target of Karl Marx is not the Aristocracy or the extremely wealthy — It is the UPSTART MIDDLE CLASS!

The bourgeoisie, wherever it has got the upper hand, has put an end to all feudal, patriarchal, idyllic relations. It has pitilessly torn asunder the motley feudal ties that bound man to his ‘natural superiors,’ and has left remaining no other nexus between man and man than naked self-interest, callous ‘cash payment.’ It has drowned the most heavenly ecstasies of religious fervor, of chivalrous enthusiasm, of philistine sentimentalism, in the icy water of egotistical calculation. It has resolved personal worth into exchange value, and in place of the numberless indefeasible chartered freedoms, has set up that single, unconscionable freedom—Free Trade. In one word, for exploitation, veiled by religious and political illusions, it has substituted naked, shameless, direct, brutal exploitation.
The bourgeoisie has stripped of its halo every occupation hitherto honored and looked up to with reverent awe. It has converted the physician, the lawyer, the priest, the poet, the man of science, into its paid wage laborers.” [ <=== This is why academia is on board with Marxism, they want the 'halo' and worship back.]

It is not a comforting thought that you believe it no longer matters if the government confiscates a person’s property when it is deemed too much.

Sylvia Avery

So true. Once you agree to the concept that there is a dollar amount beyond which confiscation is acceptable….the next thing you know that dollar amount is lowered from the $100 million mentioned above to $95 million, and so on and so on and pretty soon you’re looking at everything over $50k is confiscated.
No bueno.

ForGodandCountry

I believe I have made a very reasonable and rational point about unbridled, unchecked capitalism…which is altogether quite different than saying I’m opposed to capitalism (which I most certainly am not).
I believe that in all things there can be too much of something. Too much gov’t AND too much wealth. If $$ = power….and it does….then the $$ should be limited.
If absolute power corrupts absolutely, then so does too much $$.
I am also not interested in debating this topic with anyone who believes in “all or nothing” thinking. Just as we must work to limit gov’t and keep it within reasonable bounds, so too did we learn back in the late 19th and early 20th century that unchecked capitalism (in the form of trusts and monopolies) must also be limited and kept within reasonable bounds.
It is not a comforting thought that you seem to believe that massive, giant multi-national companies like Monsanto…or billionaires like G. Soros….don’t need to be checked and reined in simply by limiting their wealth (the easiest method of checking such things).

The communists play Christians like a fiddle. They TARGET the Christian teachings about charity, humility and altruism and TWIST IT FOR EVIL!
Any Rand discusses Altruism and takes it to the logical conclusion.

What is the moral code of altruism? The basic principle of altruism is that man has no right to exist for his own sake, that service to others is the only justification of his existence, and that self-sacrifice is his highest moral duty, virtue and value. [Can you say SLAVERY???]
Do not confuse altruism with kindness, good will or respect for the rights of others….
The irreducible primary of altruism, the basic absolute, is self-sacrifice—which means; self-immolation, self-abnegation, self-denial, self-destruction—which means: the self as a standard of evil, the selfless as a standard of the good.
Do not hide behind such superficialities as whether you should or should not give a dime to a beggar. That is not the issue….The issue is whether the need of others is the first mortgage on your life and the moral purpose of your existence. The issue is whether man is to be regarded as a sacrificial animal. Any man of self-esteem will answer: “No.” Altruism says: “Yes.”
http://aynrandlexicon.com/lexicon/altruism.html

So the Communist USE the Sanction of the Victim to enslave us.

The “sanction of the victim” is the willingness of the good to suffer at the hands of the evil, to accept the role of sacrificial victim for the “sin” of creating values.
John Galt’s Speech,

…. the only weapon of its triumph was the willingness of the good to serve it. Just as the parasites around me were proclaiming their helpless dependence on my mind and were expecting me voluntarily to accept a slavery they had no power to enforce, just as they were counting on my self-immolation to provide them with the means of their plan—so throughout the world and throughout men’s history, in every version and form, from the extortions of loafing relatives to the atrocities of collectivized countries, it is the good, the able, the men of reason, who act as their own destroyers, who transfuse to evil the blood of their virtue and let evil transmit to them the poison of destruction, thus gaining for evil the power of survival, and for their own values—the impotence of death. I saw that there comes a point, in the defeat of any man of virtue, when his own consent is needed for evil to win—and that no manner of injury done to him by others can succeed if he chooses to withhold his consent.

Until Christians can sniff out EVIL masquerading as altruism, they will continue to twist Christians to their use.
EXAMPLES:
Does Christian Charity Reach ‘illegals’?

Christian churches in Arizona of every kind – Roman Catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian, Baptist, Pentecostal, liberal and conservative – offer services to people in need and seldom ask about immigration status. Typically, the churches provide services with a full knowledge that some recipients are in the U.S. illegally…. Christian ministry to the newly arrived in Arizona is huge and involves thousands of helper/Christian people. Aiding and abetting law-breakers easily becomes a part of our Christian responsibility…. Offering shelter and meeting the needs of the sojourners of the world is a fundamental part of the Bible’s teaching. Many American churches regularly offer their buildings as a safe haven for people being pursued by law enforcement officials.

Once the Communists have you THINKING our present system of Corporatism is Capitalism, they can talk you into moving further towards Socialism. This means you do not consider OTHER SOLUTIONS.
Again please read
“Evil Socialism” vs “Evil Capitalism”

….Oddly, you can look at Communism as the “limit case” where there is ONE corporation and it IS the government. At the other extreme is “laissez faire” with huge numbers of competitors. As you move toward Communism you pass through stages of ever more “concentration” of control. Just shy of communism is Classical Socialism with it’s state planning boards and commissions. A bit more toward L.F. you get “Market Socialism” (with some sub-types in between).
The USA until about 1990 was a “Mixed Economy” with some “natural monopolies” under government “control” via “regulation”; and with many competitive markets. We’ve moved to more central planning and more central “regulation” (in some cases as a cover for the “planning” word that has gotten tied to Socialism… so is political to some extent). With the nationalization of GM and the bank “bailout” / “rescue” that was really more of a ‘take-under’ in some ways; we moved to a Lange Type Socialism….

I hope that helps you understand where I am comming from. Until I read a lot of Chiefio’s articles I did not realize what the Communist were up to with their redefining of words.

scumbag…but the associate had surveillance countermeasures? sounds pretty sophisticated…i think there’s more to this story…
FTA:
He skipped his sentence hearing on Sept. 6, 2015, and in October 2016 authorities found a rental car with a suicide note from Manning. Authorities believed that the offender had staged his own death.
“The US Parks Service located a rental car leased to Manning near the Golden Gate Bridge bearing a suicide note authored by Manning. Manning’s body was not located,” the police statement said.
Investigators began to monitor the behavior of a close associate of the offender and noted what appeared to be his “sophisticated countersurveillance measures.”
Authorities searched for Manning through Chico, Yuba City, Sacramento, San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, and Alameda. Investigators narrowly missed nabbing him on many occasions.
“Agents from the Marshal’s Service continued to monitor the behavior and developed leads regarding possibilities of Manning’s location. Residences, storage facilities, and vehicles tied to Manning’s associate were frequently found full of personal property and hastily abandoned,” the police said.
A breakthrough happened when agents of the US Marshal’s Service developed leads about Manning to be in Florida.

Ten Hutt, QTreepers!!!
President Trump is up and on the warpath!!!!

Note: He uses that word ‘SICK’ again. The surveillance must have been deeply invasive. Cameras?
Even then, DJT knew Øbominable was the source of the illegal spying.

Today’s POTUS’ tweet states, “from long before I ever took office I was under a sick and unlawful investigation…”
Penguin hums to self, “POTUS Knows, POTUS Knows, POTUS Knows!” If POTUS knows, his AG certainly knows! 🙂
Andrew McCarthy gets this right. It’s the first line of his article. I don’t need to read anymore –

GA/FL

“Law in the service of Partisan Politics.” That was the theme of the whole damn Øbominable tenure – including Holder, Lynch, Comey, Lerner and a whole bunch of others. Øbastard’s tenure was a bullying thugocracy.

GA/FL

…a thugocracy. Øbominable bullied, persecuted and weaponzed agencies against conservatives. Obama promoted racial unrest and division. He aided, funded, armed, pardoned and/or released thieves, thugs, tyrants, terrorists, and traitors every day of his tenure in office.

So you’re not buying their soon to be made claim that it was for your own good? They REALLY want to believe that, because what they have to accept if it were not so ..

GA/FL

I speck he will get to that. ;8->

Extraordinarily damaging – but the people who were trying to take over the country (and still are) it was/is simply a means to an end.
The Left has taken such a hold in this country – our cultural institutions along with the political realm have almost brought them victory. The political part couldn’t succeed until they had the judiciary in hand, and academia. While we slept, or rather while the “opposition party” – the GOP – sold us out for money, the Dems gladly paid the 30 pieces of silver.

TRUTH, LP….shameful truth.

I think if we all knew what “POTUS Knows”, there would be a huge run on smelling salts, or Xanax or something …
We just THINK we know how bad it is – he and his team REALLY know!!!
I think I can handle the truth, but could I really? It depends, I guess ….

If I were to learn the full extent and details of child sex trafficking/torturing rings, I don’t know if I could ever sleep again.
If I were POTUS, I would secretly task the US Navy SEALs and other US SOF assets to deal with offenders in the HARSHEST measures possible. Use them as low risk training ops for the newbies.
US intel gets credible info on an offender…they simply disappear. Forever.comment image

Tough situation for any CIC – What you describe is a natural reaction that many here, including me would likely consider. The smart thing is to let that emotion pass – then apply the LAW – so that the Republic is not weakened. Trump has clearly shown that this is the path he is walking – it is to the good ..

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

AMEN.
We have fought long an hard to restore rule of law. Satan sneaks in where we least expect, but one of the ways we should always expect is justification by outrage. Satan will test our resistance to outrage, then go bigger, and the satanic fake news press, when it needs to run that way, WILL DO IT. They will hide outrage for their friends, but ramp it up when they need to lead others into more of it.
PURE MANIPULATION.
The leftists want our EMOTIONS to take the place of law – bringing us halfway to Stalinism, where none dare criticize the government for killing whoever it likes.
I remember when “serial killings” started to become a more common thing, and the press growing into the lurid PROMOTION of them.
Fake Entertainment has always been about promoting both lurid crime and extrajudicial “justified murder” revenge. It’s what they do.

Nailed it!!!

You’re right of course. Should have said “would be sorely tempted to” in my post above.

Ha ha. As I was writing, the Wold was posting about temptation.

I had no doubt. Breath fire, let it out. Then act for the good …
That is long term action.
