Dear KAG: 20210420 Open Thread

Cover image: Busy Busy Honey Bee by J. Larry Walker. Full image:

With spring upon us…well, some of us. We’re supposed to get snow in the mid-Mississippi River Valley today, it’s swarm season, I understand; the time of year when the bees who have outgrown their hives make new queens and move on.

There are days one would wish the Democrats would do the same, but they aren’t that industrious.

I’d say that programming was successful.

Explaining this is going to be a full time job.

We’re going to need a speaker series for the uninitiated.

Anyone up for a ride?

Just a reminder:

Of course, this does not mean committing felonies, but standing up to the forces that want to tear this nation – and humanity apart. The very people XVII told us will be destroyed by the time this movie comes to an end are currently roaming the halls of power…supposedly. It’s a sickening sight.

And now for something completely different.

Your weekly reminder to take the pledge:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

And now for the nitty gritty of the Q Tree 5 minute, stand up, Tuesday morning meeting version of the Daily Thread.

Ahem.

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out with anyone who happens to still be hanging out there. There is also a “rescue” thread there for members of the Tree to rendezvous if the main site goes kablooey.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

And Auntie DePat’s requests as we are all, ahem, adults, although some of us are beginning to wonder what the threshold for true adulthood is:

If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.

The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.

Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.

ACTS 7:51–8:1

751“You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so do you. 52Which of the prophets did not your fathers persecute? And they killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whom you have now betrayed and murdered, 53you who received the law as delivered by angels and did not keep it.” 54Now when they heard these things they were enraged, and they ground their teeth against him. 55But he, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God; 56and he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing at the right hand of God.” 57But they cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together upon him. 58Then they cast him out of the city and stoned him; and the witnesses laid down their garments at the feet of a young man named Saul. 59And as they were stoning Stephen, he prayed, “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.” 60And he knelt down and cried with a loud voice, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” And when he had said this, he fell asleep. 81And Saul was consenting to his death. And on that day a great persecution arose against the church in Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the region of Judea and Sama’ria, except the apostles.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome. Via con Dios.

I’m a sucker for the “every hair painted” technique, also used in Duerer’s “Young Hare”.

http://www.albrechtdurer.org/young-hare/

cthulhu

And, yes, I know I can do umlauted vowels….I just use the shortcut because it is available.

Cuppa Covfefe

In Finnish or Icelandic you probably would want to use the umlauts 🙂
e.g. Epäjärjestelmällistyttämättömyydellänsäkäänköhän
and Lentokonesuihkuturbiinimoottoriapumekaanikkoaliupseerioppilas

(OK, that one didn’t have any umlauts, but it was 61 characters (shady characters, dare I say) long)…

I think they went to Wales in the dark of night and stole all their vowels… (yes, I know they use y and w as vowels, but still….). Maybe they did that to confuse the postal scanners… like Cwmystwyth,Ysbyty Ystwyth, and Rhydymwyn…

SteveInCO

Another place that was too poor to afford a vowel was Croatia (and Serbia, too, but as they use the Cyrillic alphabet there it’s slightly less obvious to most Americans).

Both of your examples look Finnish. Icelandic is fond of the umlaut-o to be sure, but it doesn’t create words quite that long, at least not as a matter of routine. Finnish is an “agglutinative’ language (sticking pieces together) from a family that tends that way, far more than any of the Germanic languages.

Icelandic has the additional complication of two consonant characters we don’t have in English (but used to), the thorn and the eth, which represent the th in thing and the th in that, respectively.

The thorn looks like a letter that couldn’t make up its mind whether to be a lower case ‘b’ or lower case ‘p” (it has both the ascender and descender), the eth is a crossed D. Þ, and ð.

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep. Those two examples were racing across the Finnish line. I’m familiar with the “thorn” because of the various Volcanos in Iceland a few years back, and their interesting names, including family names…

Wonder if the thorn likes being used as transitive…
(ducks and puns)…..

SteveInCO

The “crossed d” is actually more common than the regular D in Icelandic, but I had trouble seeing that horizontal line when it was on a capital D and bodged up more than one word I tried to pronounce as a consequence.

“Thingvellir” park, where you can see the mid-atlantic rift, is correctly spelt with a thorn.

and the ll is apparently pronounced “tl” so the park is “thing vet leer” in ‘phonetic’ English.

cthulhu

Fun fact — rabbits and hares are not rodents, like guinea pigs and capybaras, mice and squirrels…..they are lagomorphs.

Barb Meier

Very nice hare painting along with the description of his work. Thanks for the link!

Hi, y’all. It’s the witching hour.

cthulhu

I’m not a witch….nor am I running for political office.

rayzorback

Good thing that you are NOT a “witch”….
You would never win an “(s)election” not being one 🙂

JW in Germany

The food pyramid introduced in the 70s featuring a low-fat/low red meat diet has been an experiment on the whole of society for almost half a century—an experiment with very little REAL science to support it—an experiment gone terribly wrong.

When you start researching the people backing the food pyramid (anti-meat agenda)…you start to realize that they are the same types that are pushing vaccines today.

cthulhu

It is one of the most horrific things ever done to a general population and is responsible for most of the obesity/diabetes problems we see today. Everyone involved is fortunate that their scam was not detected before most of them were safely dead. When Atkins originally came out and proved them wrong, they should have faced Nuremberg-style trials and executions.

JW in Germany

Agreed! The types that brought us margarine…are now pushing Fake Meat.

Grandmaintexas

I had a hard time breaking my mom of the margarine habit.

When I finally did, I felt like I’d scored one for humanity.

Linda

My mom churned our butter when I was growing up. We went out to the dairy farm to get our milk. She skimmed some of the cream off the top and made butter with it. Best butter I’ve ever had!

JW in Germany

When I am in ketosis with carbs less than 50g daily intake…I feel so great! My mind is awake and very sharp. Even my senses seem to be improved…I swear my sense of smell is amplified. When I am walking in nature, fields, gardens or forest, I can recognize aromas that I have not experiences since I was a kid.

singingsoul1

Not minimizing your ketosis
I have the same experience if i walk after contemplation 🙂

Serious, I understand that but I cannot go without a slice of bread for lunch.
If I cut my carbs to low I do not feel good and sometimes get just sick. My carbs are from home milled Einkorn or home flaked oatmeal with berries 1/2 , grated apple, almonds, lemon juice and yogurt.

Sometimes I bake a German bread all rye also milled at home. I noticed how bread with home milled flour is more satisfying and often I just have half a slice.
Never eat carbs in the evening meal. Since my husband is diabetic carbs are limited and diet is controlling his diabetics and he is not on meds.
Every metabolism is different and to much carbs are not good for anyone.
Potatoes, rice and noodles very seldom. I never have been a big noodle or rice person. I never stopped eating butter and never fell for the margarine craze. We always had whole milk in the home.
I like good cheeses.

JW in Germany

Not at all minimized. I understand that we are individuals and have different reactions/tolerances to what we ingest. I suspect that much can be traced back to our ancestors and how they obtained their nutrients…including the breakdown of macros fat, protein, and carbs.

My reaction to a dramatic reduction in carbs is an immediate reduction body fat…including visceral. My pot belly disappears and my blood pressure drops significantly to the point of cutting medication is necessary.

As far as not feeling good on very low carb…that is common…some call it the Keto flu. In most cases, it is due to the loss of electrolytes through losing too much water…carbs hold water. Ingesting extra salt does wonders.

Also, there is the gray zone of being low carb…but not low enough to be in ketosis…you will feel sluggish and the mind foggy…with carbs too low to create enough glucose…but not low enough to switch to a ketone producing machine. For many, that transition is tough and a deal breaker. The body has to be trained to use ketones…that is when the benefits appear.

But looking at what you eat, you are not eating what would be considered a high carb diet…more on the low/moderate end with very little processed poison. Looks clean to me.

The more aged the cheese…the better. No carbs!

singingsoul1

You just explained what happened to me. Maybe I need to try again. I do eat beef and fish chicken lamb.
My husband always was thin 32″ waist and became diabetic but his father was a baker and he ate lots of carbs and still if I not watch will load up on spaghetti when out. He loves carbs and used to eat lots of bread before bed .

JW in Germany

Don’t get me started on the high carb Food Pyramid of death promoted by ideology/agenda (anti-red meat) driven Fake ‘science’. Especially those suffering from diabetes type 2…should consider class action lawsuits.

I just posted on the subject last night for my cousin on Fakebook.

The YouTube channel Low Carb Down Under is a treasure trove I highly recommend. The doctors, professors and scientists there are taking on Big Ag and Big Pharm despite the risk of being shunned for cutting against the grain<<<grain…get it? LOL! 😂

Thank you. Yes as my husband said first came butter is bad, then red mead is bad and eggs and sugared orange juice , the energy drinks and on and on.
It is astounding what we do not drink or eat.
Thank you for all your good information. One the new Q forum you should start a topic on nutrition and share all the wonderful info you have. 🙂

churchmouse

With keto, make sure to drink 3 8 oz. glasses of water throughout the day and into the evening.

Also, salt your food adequately to keep your body functioning properly.

singingsoul1

Good to know 🙂

Grandmaintexas

Thank you. Saving for when I’ve got a passel of grandkids running around the yard later this morning.

JW in Germany

My pleasure.

A couple of days ago, Deplorable Patriot posted that we are experiencing many types of resets simultaneously…which struck a chord with me when considering the introduction of the Food Pyramid of death during the 70s and 80s.

Now these people want us ingesting Fake Meat. How many vegans are at the top pushing this based on ideology instead of actual peer reviewed science? They are killing us with their dictatorial mandates.

So, some major developments in ceiling fans.

Home Depot still sells the same fan — https://www.homedepot.com/p/Master-Flow-4500-CFM-24-in-Direct-Drive-Whole-House-Fan-with-Shutter-WHFS24M/100018252#product-overview . Mind you, it’s been 25 years since we first installed it, but everything about that looks just the same.

So, it says it’s from “Master Flow”. There are a whole range of Master Flow Products that are sold both by HD and Lowe’s….but trying to do internet searches gets a lot of misleading grunge. That’s because Master Flow doesn’t have a website. [Doesn’t have a website?!?!? That’s ridiculous! Wolf’s got TWO.]

And they don’t have a website because they got absorbed by the GAF conglomerate some time back. GAF, however, considers their major residential product to be roofing (they acquired Master Flow for attic vents and not whole-house fans). That really shows when you navigate their main website — https://www.gaf.com/en-us/for-homeowners

Eventually, if you poke it right, you can get to https://www.gaf.com/en-us/products/master-flow-replacement-motors … and you are so close you can taste it … until you notice that there are no motors for WHFS (Whole House Fan Shutter) products, and nothing like the 1/4 hp motor that I’m looking for.

Further investigation finally gets you to https://www.gaf.com/en-us/about-us/contact, where it helpfully says you can press 5 on the main menu, or direct dial in on 1-800-755-9392.

Of course, I didn’t get there until after 2:00 local, and they run on Eastern time, so it’s going to be tomorrow.

Frequently asked questions —
Why can’t I swap in a generic motor? This is a two-speed AC motor that runs at two specified speeds — the higher of which which moves 4500 CFM with the given fan. If I swapped it for one that moved 9000 CFM, it might suck papers in from adjacent rooms and shred them into the attic. It also has a peculiar suspension system where the brackets that hold it to the walls snugly fit around its “waist” — if I changed it, I might have to figure out my own way to suspend it. It’d be better to get something “plug-compatible”.

cthulhu

I should also note Rayzorback’s characterization of same as “dust inviters”. It is very true — but if you’re letting outside air flow through your house regularly, it’s part of the package.

gil00

Right now we have a fan blowing in outside air from the window and a 3 day old ceiling fan above us. Our prior ceiling fan lasted 4 years.
We dont have a whole house fan here but I hope your current project gets resolved befor it starts getting too hot.

cthulhu

Four years is a very short time for ceiling fans — it may have still been under warranty.

gil00

Nope. It had problems before that. Costco wouldnt take it back. So, i bought a $ 69 harbor breeze lowes sale one and added the remote. Had to replace some outside lights…was not cheap, electrician overcharged too. Luckily i met a commercial guy at lowes who does residential side jobs for pocket money. He can finish what i need in a couple months.

pgroup2

How many times must I tell you?

Grainger is the go-to place for electric motors.

cthulhu

You didn’t read the FAQ.

Gudthots

I assembled my own whole house fan and got my fan from grainger. They truly do carry every type you could imagine and their search tools are pretty decent.

https://www.grainger.com/category/hvac-and-refrigeration/ventilation-equipment-and-supplies/exhaust-fans/whole-house-fans

cthulhu

If I can cozen the specs out of the GAF guys tomorrow, I may well get a motor from Grainger, but I’m trying to reverse-engineer this broken thing without a lot of clues. If it had a nameplate on the motor, this would have long since been done.

Gudthots

Yes, the frustration of your situation is understandable. My first fan, installed many years ago was a little less powerful. The replacement was a little too strong (as in a bit of a roaring sound when it came on). I added a cheap air filter at the ceiling intake which slowed the air down just the right amount. For which I was grateful.

What I built looks a lot like that tube by QUIETCOOL on the Grainger site. The duct goes into the attic and is hung from the rafters by straps to decouple fan vibration from the house structure. Very quiet.

cthulhu

We were satisfied with the current fan for 20+ years until the bearings started to go. It’s partially caulked into place, and (*helpful hint*) the metal part of it has random caulk on it to minimize “ring”. I could pop it out and install the “same fan” for $270 (plus caulk), but then I’d have to customize it appropriately.

The worst part is that I can visualize through the motor to understand exactly what the problem is — the bearings ran dry and started to squeak. I squirted some lithium grease to where I thought would get to the bearings and some ended-up on the brushes. If I could get to the brushes, I could wipe the grease off with a mite of solvent and it would be fine (especially if I supplemented the lubrication in the CORRECT spots).

This is not a complicated artifact — I could build every part of this thing from raw materials using only the tools I have on hand. But I have nearly zero documentation of how it was built by somebody else, and if I want to continue any part of their installation I need to figure things out.

If I were being paid by the hour, I’d have demo’d this thing in the first ten minutes.

cthulhu

Really, the problem started with the pre-packaged solution 25 years ago. If I had built my own from scratch (not difficult), I’d have the engine off to the side and drive the fan with a belt — and if I changed fan speeds, I could change pulley diameters. At the time, however, I’d never lived in one place as long as I’ve lived here…..and couldn’t really grasp “spare parts two decades from now” as a concept.

rayzorback

On my previous shop, I picked up an old attic fan cheap that had the drive belt style.

I wanted to use it as an exhaust fan to expel the heat from my shop.

I turned it up on its side, turned over the fan blades, and mounted the motor to turn in the opposite direction (blows out instead of in).

Mounted it up high to the sidewall of the shop.
Bought a shutter set from Grainger to keep the rain out.

Worked like a charm 🙂

cthulhu

Called GAF, asked about replacement motor — they told me that Home Depot had them and the magic number is 204676203….

With that, you can special-order the motor. $150, delivered to my door (as opposed to a new fan unit, which — including tax — would be more like $300). Scheduled for Thursday.

Facemasks in the COVID-19 era: A health hypothesis
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7680614/

From the Stanford study showing masks don’t help to prevent you from catching a virus:

comment image

I was alarmed for a moment as I looked over all the harmful side effects from wearing a mask.

I mean, I haven’t experienced any of those side effects.

Then I remembered, I don’t wear the mask, so I don’t have to worry about any of that stuff 😁

cthulhu

I agree. Many of those effects are limited to the idiots that go jogging or bicycling with the damned things or wear them eight hours a day at work.

Linda

Unfortunately, a lot of people are required to wear them 8 hours at work – grocery store cashiers, hair stylists, sales clerks, etc. So I wouldn’t consider them idiots – they need to earn a living. But the ones that go jogging or bicycling with a mask on are definitely idiots. When something is required or they don’t let you in, I use a face shield. Masks just make me angry.

cthulhu

I actually made the distinction between “idiots that go…” and “wear them”. The Fiancee frequently works at a front desk greeting the public and has to wear one at all times. It’s awful.

Sadie Slays

Today I saw a man on a motorcycle wearing a surgical mask. I get the bikers who wear a bandana for a bug shield, but a medical mask? It looked as absurd as it sounds.

I also saw the guard pig again! It was eating grass on the front lawn while snorting.

Oxygen starvation and hypercapnia in developing children, leading to lifelong deficits, is just monstrous.

Next beer salvage report.

Original Wexford Irish Style Creme Ale, Nitro Draught.

Y’know, there is a geeky sort of fun with nitrogen draft beers — when you pour them, you get this waterfall of bubbles just inside the glass going down that is very pleasing. It’s caused by the tiny size of the less-buoyant nitrogen bubbles reacting to the greater mass of upward-surging ale at the center of the glass. OTOH, they tend to foam over quite readily and pouring one out of a can without making a mess can be tricky. Like actually “pulling a pint”, you have to pour it down the side of the glass for most of the pour and end with just a bit on center.

Without that gimmick, it’s a perfectly acceptable mild ale. Not too hoppy; not too heavy. Sort of like Newcastle brown ale without the brown.

gil00

I heart Newcastle. Now i know a little about nitro beers.

cthulhu

The classic is Guiness — the dark color of the beer makes anything in the middle completely invisible, so you just see the bubbles going down the sides.

gil00

In Ireland i had a girly guinness just to try it. They put a sweet berry syrup in it and i cant remember what it was. It was good but original is best. I still dont get why guinness isnt sold in 12 oz size bottles here, esp since they brew in the US now. 11.2 oz isnt enough.

cthulhu

11.2 oz is 330 ml — a common size in metric land.

singingsoul1

In Germany they call the beer with berry syrup “Berliner Weissen.” Tast very nice and comes in a different beer glass. The glass has a short stem and looks like a half globe.
I like the girly guinness 🙂

Its some sort of flower berry…but yes served like that.

cthulhu

I should note that the original brewery at Newcastle-upon-Tyne is closed, and if you buy it in the US, it’s made by Lagunitas.

gil00

I didnt know that. Ive not had lagunitis. Every other beer here is IPA. Mr Gil doesnt like it and i cant get samplers inexpensively….but ill try your method next time.

gil00

Kiddo and mr gil found a huge huge beehive a month ago by the creek. Hanging from an oak tree are 8 giant honeycombs lined up next to each other.
I love bees but dont want them in my walls.

I hope your snowstorm isnt too bad. We ware supposed to be mid 80s this week. Ill trade you 15 degrees DP.

cthulhu

If you get in contact with a local beekeeping club, you can trade knowledge of that location for a substantial amount of future local honey. Someone in the club will know how to capture that hive and give it a happy home in managed bee boxes.

gil00

Its way up in a tree but ill look into it.

gil00

Its a hike to get to it so they won’t. A neighbor had a swarm in the walls of his house and i found out insurance doesnt cover that. So, I just make sure they stay away from vents and all.

gil00

Adding to our backyard aviary, a roadrunner visited today. I dont mind but he cant eat my lizards. Little frogs arent around as much either.
I told mr gil I want a little pond. Just big enough for the ducks to paddle in and maybe get a few frogs in the evening.

cthulhu

We have long used rubbermaid stock tanks as backyard ponds —

.

You can sink them a bit, or all the way, or plant something around the bottom and leave them up. We tried some other plastic ponds and they kept deforming and were a pain to maintain.

gil00

Can i get those at tractor supply?

cthulhu

Very possibly. Rubbermaid doesn’t have its own stores, so allows them to be sold widely. And the pricing on Amazon is always individual delivery, so someplace local that has them may easily be cheaper.

gil00

Ill check. Lowes had prefab but were flimsy ish.

cthulhu

The Rubbermaid ones are “stock tanks” — they’re meant to be dropped off near a well and filled for livestock (cattle) to drink from. If a rancher slid one off their truck and it broke, their reputation would take a giant hit.

cthulhu

And you’d need a pickup to take it home.

We had to jump through hoops to get ours home from a feed store.

wheatietoo

Pickups make life sooo easy.

I would’ve thought that a do-it-yourself-er like yourself would already have one.
 😊 

Grandmaintexas

Yes. I have a 250 gallon one and use it as a hillbilly hot tub. However, I’ve long wanted to make a little pond.

gil00

Lol. We made a duck house out of a plastic storage bin but i need some hay. Im going to see what tsc has.

Aubergine

If you have a local feed store, check with them. They might even be able to order one in for you if they don’t have one in stock.

Grandmaintexas

I have one and would like to do that. Do you have a pump in it? Tell me all the particulars!! Pretty please!

cthulhu

No pump, no filter — bottom gets pretty grungy after a couple of years. We grew things like blue pickerel, water lilies, sedges, rushes, irises (right now, the yellow ones are in bloom) in pots If they’re too deep, you can put the pots on cinderblocks. Have to do mosquito dunks at present (pricey), because they currently have no fish.

His timeline on Gab is full of good stuff. The man is quite astute.

Yes. DOJ can hit Apple with all the NSLs it can crank out, and they can get Parler patriot data from Apple instead of NSA.

I haven’t been back to Parler since Matz trashed Q and Q peeps.

Even though the Mercers fired him…I still haven’t been back.
The Mercers are all about data collection.

Grandmaintexas

Parler is done.

Wolf Moon

Now this is interesting. I just went there and read all of Parler’s policy stuff – and it’s basically pretty darn good now. In fact, I cannot see how they got past Apple this time. They have user-driven moderation. The only thing Parler does is basically what GAB does – only the left pretends that Gab does NOT do these things. The roadblocks that Apple put in Parler’s path are almost phony now, and when Parler did these minimal things, Apple let them through.

It almost makes me think that Apple is looking to avoid going where Coke went, and is slowly backing away from Woke.

Next salvage beer — “Guayabera Citra Pale Ale” by Cigar City Brewing out of Tampa, FL.

This one sounds more scary than it is, until you realize that Citra is a variety of hop and there are no strange fruit additives included. It’s a nice Pale Ale. Firestone did a Propagator (their term for a single hop beer) with Citra that was better a little ways back.

Nothin’ to worry ’bout.

Tried signing up for a Frank Speech account. First thing they require is a phone number. That’s an automatic no-go for me, so I will not be making an account over there. Parler had the same requirement, and people got burned after Parler was hacked. Be careful, folks. Don’t post anything over there that you wouldn’t want publicized with your real life information.

Yes that was also my gripe.
I hope they get the message and have different ways for signing up.

Yes, it is a news site with the livestream playing at the top. There is a lot to see there without signing up for the social media platform.  

At the top there is a link to Mike Lindell’s “Absolute Proof” videos (on a tab titled “Absolute Series”). There is a tab for podcasts and TV. I see what Lindell meant when he said it would be like no other social media site.

Wolf Moon

Yeah, no phone number. Frank is doing Gab a big favor there!

Aubergine

I won’t do the phone number thing, either. But I will go looking around. Frank is WAY different than Gab. It is some sort of new hybrid thing. Cool, but will take some time to adjust, I think. Unless something is very different when you have an account versus just being a lurker.

DeSantis: With More Data, I Would Have Ditched ‘Faucism’ Earlier, Some of our Restrictions ‘Were Ineffective’ (breitbart.com)
https://video.foxnews.com/v/6249401641001

During a portion of an interview with Fox Nation’s “Tucker Carlson Today,” released on Monday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said that some of the coronavirus restrictions Florida did early on “were ineffective” and that if he had more data early on, he could have said “we’re not doing Faucism” earlier.

DeSantis said, “If I had had the — had more data, I would have had the ability to say, wait a minute, why would we need to close a gym for two weeks? I mean, these are younger people going to work out. If you’re healthy, you’re going to end up dealing with the virus better. And so, I think that it took me a few weeks, March and into April to get enough data to say, okay, we’re not doing Faucism. We’re going to make sure our state’s open. We’re going to get the kids back into school, and we’ll just focus our protection on elderly people, who are the ones that are at risk for this.”

Host Tucker Carlson then asked, “So, you’ve taken all this crap for not locking down. You’re saying, in retrospect, you wish you’d locked down less?”

DeSantis responded, “Some of the restrictions we did, I think were ineffective.”

cthulhu

When I was a kid, I had a “family babysitter” that was a friend of my grandmother’s. When I got chickenpox, I went over there to play…..and they, in turn, gave me mumps (or vice-versa….I was quite young). Neither was a serious childhood disease, and both conferred lifetime immunity, and were bad adult diseases.

That’s the way things were done in olden times when people weren’t insanely stupid because of public indoctrination by government schools.

And that’s what we should have done with this coronavirus.

eilert

Yes the only time I really was sick (except for malaria later in my life) was in my first year in school. That is were I got all these childhood diseases virtually at once, since all the other kids got them too.

Wolf Moon

100% agreed!

Marjorie Taylor Greene Says She Will Introduce Resolution to Expel Maxine Waters From Congress – Unite America First

Marjorie Taylor Greene says she will be introducing legislation to remove Maxine Waters from the House for inciting the rioters in Minnesota. Just hours after Waters told the crowd that they needed to step up confrontation in the Minneapolis area a white SUV drove by National Guardsmen and opened fire. Two members of the Guard were slightly wounded. One went to the hospital after he was hit by flying glass.

Freshman Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) said Sunday that she planned to offer the resolution because of the incendiary remarks Waters made to the rioters in the Minneapolis suburb of Brooklyn Center. Waters also demanded that the jury come back with a verdict of guilty. Maxine Waters is one of the many Democrats who claim that it is conservatives that are violent, not antifa or BLM.

Greene posted her intention to Twitter, saying:

I pulled out another salvage beer, from the vinegar-infused masochist brewers from yesterday, and it was adulterated with coffee and coconut.

Hard pass. I’m not even going to taste it.

Valerie Curren

A lot of Q-Treepers playing at the new forum…fun!

cthulhu

I’m going to have to manufacture a new identity first. 🙁

Wolf Moon

Why? It makes zero sense. Registration involves giving me the information I already have. Why would a new identity help?

cthulhu

Because you already have too much information in one place (individual comments in a blog). It’s even worse if it’s in a blog registration.

Subpoenas generally get what they ask for and not more. Someone can hide in the unasked questions. “Give me a list of your registered users” will scoop up one and not the other.

I’ve long sensed weaknesses in my communications infrastructure. This is precipitating a crisis.

cthulhu

Consider setting up a privacy canary.

Wolf Moon

That would be misleading. It would make people think they’re safe right now, which is absolutely not true. Whatever it is that involves me, it’s far worse than an NSL. And it has been for almost my entire life, but I don’t know exactly when it started.

cthulhu

Then, perhaps, have a hotplan where IPs and emails for commenters get encrypted when a subpoena for registered users is processed.

Wolf Moon

What if it’s a legitimate request?

Maybe you didn’t read the contact page, but I’m not a person who automatically believes all requests for information coming from a COURT are terrible things. Indeed, I made clear that should illegalities ever take place here, I would make sure evidence stays UP for law enforcement and journalism to peruse at their leisure.

This whole idea of taking things down doesn’t really fly with The Wolf. It never made sense. Same with hiding or not providing legally AND legitimately requested information.

I’m just sensing Alinsky fears here. And those simply never made sense to me.

For your personality type, I think it’s probably UNWISE to go on the forum.

I think you need to realize that this place IS social media. The RISKS are THERE.

But it’s OK – you have plenty of time to think about it.

Wolf Moon

I will admit that’s true, but IMO that’s no way to go through life. I mean, we walk down the street, and there are security cameras everywhere, which can all be subpoenaed. Why live in fear of them? If you do, you won’t leave the house.

Essentially, you’re living your life in hopes that unnamed enemies will make a dumb error. What you say is TRUE, but should it be CONTROLLING?

If you’re afraid of the government, it’s over. The moment you came on this site, they OWNED YOU. And all your friends and relatives. I think that’s two hops from me. They can go on your fiance’s computer and get whatever they want, as long as it will stand up to Chris Wray’s approval in the end. As far as .gov is concerned, you’re history. They know everything about you now. I’m sure the question of who in the hell you were came up, and they’re satisfied with whatever your story is. So that’s done.

I don’t know – I just think there’s no getting away from what data you left on this site. But I don’t think there’s any reason to be afraid of it – or of anybody who would go after it.

The TRUTH is an absolute defense in court. There are VERY few instances where there’s trouble for speaking the truth – or if you’re mistaken, then what you honestly believe to be the truth.

And even if there WERE trouble for speaking the truth, THAT is a hill worth dying on.

cthulhu

Unfortunately, the TRUTH is not an absolute defense in kangaroo court.

And we are within months of AI sufficiently able of piercing such obfuscation — but we can hinder it at every turn.

Registering is giving our oppressors an unwarranted leg-up.

To me it’s all theater. The police officers sent out night after night without permission to actually stop these people. It’s like being a target in a carnival shooting gallery.

Why bother chasing them around ? The Mayor talked about “the city we love” while at the same time dog whistling for anti police. It’s a joke, a cruel joke on the police dept.

Linda

I think the police should go on strike and refuse to show up. They aren’t allowed to do anything, so why should they make themselves a target? And that’s what they are. That’s what these moronic mayors/dems/etc. want – for them to stand out there and be targets, and hopefully one will get totally pissed and shoot someone so they can start it all over again.

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow, that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me.

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, amen.

TRUMP SPEAKS OUT AFTER A LONG TIME BEING SILENT!
april 20, 2021 the marshall report

https://themarshallreport.wordpress.com/2021/04/20/trump-speaks-out-after-a-long-time-being-silent/

EXCLUSIVE interview with President Trump – first since leaving the White House, at Mar-a-lago.


duchess01

Yes – Timing is everything!!!

duchess01

This interview was so disappointing – nothing new under the sun – as usual – Hannity wants us to consider HIS VIEWS – jumps from one subject to the other

Did we hear anything we did not already know? I do not think so – but – Hannity tried to pin President Trump down on his vision for 2024 – who cares?

Unless voter integrity is restored in ALL of the states – participation in promoting candidates and/or voting is a mute point.

As usual – Hannity is worthless – still cannot conduct an interview without pushing his agenda – so sick of these idiots – I am

duchess01

Big Sigh – Maybe, you are correct, DP!!!

  :wpds_unamused: 

kalbokalbs

Didn’t listen to the interview. Yea, I am massively pissed off at all the fake news, which includes Hannity. If there were a clip with Hannity, ONLY Trump speaking, I’d listen in.

Guessing here.

  • Trump is maintaining visibility.
  • Letting others fight the stolen election.
  • Watching His Fraudulency and his handlers, along with Uniparty destroy the country. (Can’t stop them is fundamental reality.)
  • ^^^ THIS keeps the media from hammering Trump over “nothing burger” manufactured crap. Also puts time behind him as Dodge asshoe prosecutors in NY, DC, etc. are after Trump.
  • At some point inn 22, Trump will come out swinging hard at Joe, Hoe and Uniparty. Nationalism, America First, MAGA, bitch slamming Chyna…
  • IF, IF, IF, the election process is largely corrected, in 23 Trump will announce he is running in 24.
  • Otherwise, Trump will in time decide to fade.
kalbokalbs

Edited.

If there were a clip withOUT Hannity, ONLY Trump speaking, I’d listen in.

duchess01

To my knowledge – PT has talked about Congress in 2022 – what good is that if election integrity is not resolved?

Kal, I cannot think beyond 2021 right now – heard predictions saying ‘by the end of the year’ – so what is going on right now – if the Military knows – and there is an ‘occupation’ in DC – when are they going to ‘kick them out’?

I am so sick of what is happening (or not happening) – what are they doing about the debacle at the border? It just seems to be getting worse everyday.

If we are ‘watching a movie’ – this is the worst movie I have ever seen y-t-d, Kal!!!

When Hannity asked PT about 2024 – he said ‘nothing’ – kept talking about Congress – and supporting good candidates – we will retake the House and the Senate will be harder? Who cares right now? We want to know what they are doing about the ‘stolen election’!!!

General Flynn says President Trump is still President of the United States!!! Why? What does he know we don’t know?

SteveInCO

I’m presuming that Trump thinks fraud will be fixed in at least some places before 2022, even if he’s not explicitly saying so. Otherwise, he’s a moron or a black hat.

Steyn expresses my disgust/repulsion/ire:

https://www.steynonline.com/11229/get-out-the-gloat

A particular point he makes is about McCarthy’s use of the communist propaganda phrase, “dog-whistle.” Why would ANYONE on our side adopt phony communist verbiage, thereby perpetuating and broadcasting communist propaganda and psychological manipulation? Is McCarthy, for instance, really that stupid? That is a serious question. Because a huge segment of public voices on our side constantly use communist language as if it were perfectly natural, and seem ALWAYS to “fight” ONLY after fully accepting the communist premise of any particular “issue” (propaganda point).

I lean toward stupidity as an explanation, but I am quite open to other corrupt explanations, because stupidity just should not get this stupid.

wheatietoo

I think it was Lee Atwater who first mentioned “dog whistling” back in the early 80’s.

He was referring to using words that were ‘code words’ for other things.

For the younglings who may not know…Lee Atwater was a brilliant conservative strategist, who was taken from us too soon.

Tonawanda

Atwater is greatly missed.

When he used the term, he was exonerating Reagan, according to Wiki.

The phrase has long since become a communist weapon like the phony word “racism,” meaning nothing but used to forward psy-ops and propaganda.

pgroup2

They gave a commemorative dinner for Lee when they knew he was shortly going to die. He came out on stage in a wheel chair because he was too weak to walk.

Everybody expected him to thank a bunch of people spanning his life. He did not.

Instead, he credited Jesus Christ with showing him the truth. He evangelized the audience, urging them to open their hearts to God.

The audience was stunned silent. This was in the Kennedy Center IIRC. Certainly it was in DC. It was his last appearance.

I was amazed and grateful to see it

POLL: Majority say companies that benefit are pushing for vaccine passports, mask mandates

 https://sharylattkisson.com/2021/04/poll-majority-say-companies-that-benefit-are-pushing-for-vaccine-passports-mask-mandates/

…………From the article:

Sixty-four percent (64%) of registered voters say they think it’s likely that companies selling face masks are financially supporting campaigns to continue pandemic-related mask mandates. That’s according to a recent Scott Rasmussen poll.

Similar results were found on the question of vaccine passports with 62% believing companies offering vaccines and COVID-19 tests financially support campaigns to require vaccine passports.

Vox Day is exactly right. A book deal is a certain indication of a corrupt person, in this case Barrett:

https://voxday.blogspot.com/2021/04/confirmed-barrett-took-ticket.html

Our President had no choice in who sat on the court, that much is clear now. McConnell, probably with the approval of Schumer, made the appointments. Schumer got a HUGE bonanza in getting what, for the communists, were perfect and highly successful political opportunities, and Schumer also provided cover for McConnell, by making it appear that the communist’s opposition “proved” that the nominees WERE genuinely conservative, not corrupt weasels.

The idiot Bush played this exact game, and many others supposedly on our side have also. “If the left hates you, you must be conservative.” And our side falls for that phony act ALL the time.

That logical fallacy is not only a fallacy, it is a lie, psychological manipulation, which wins every time.
