DEAR KAG: 20210611 Freedom for All Friday

Welcome back to Wolf’s Pub! It’s Friday. Can you say “AMEN!”

One can hardly keep up with all the information, news, disinformation and misinformation that’s out there. It can really sap one’s spirit.

Trying to keep up, sort the truth from the lies, be well informed but not overwhelmed, is a challenge. It was beginning to get to me. I sat around fuming for a few weeks and then it dawned on me to cloister ourselves for a weekend. What if we stayed away from media? What if we put the mobile down, cut out social media, even got out of range of various adult kids and grandkids?

What if we spent time in the Word, and with each other? What if we ate very simply and prayed more than usual? Grandpa was up for it, so a few weeks ago we shut out the WORLD and found that there is a whole universe inside that we’d neglected.

From Friday evening until Sunday evening we had an extended Sabbath rest. Meals were simple soups and hearty bread. We did the minimum of chores. Mostly, we just RESTED. A lot of time was spent reading the Bible, devotionals, and praying.

By Sunday evening we felt refreshed. It was as if TIME had slowed down to a manageable pace again. We reconnected with God in a deeper way (and boy did we need that). We were better able to discern needed course corrections.

The upshot is that we felt a freedom come upon us during that time. We had been feeling enslaved to media, to keeping up with the ever-changing news. We had been feeling burdened with the cares of this world.

I think in a way, I was slipping into feeling a sense of responsibility for things that were outside my control. I needed that cloistered weekend retreat to regain a proper sense of perspective.

That weekend made me look around my surroundings and see where I had been neglecting some of the things that make life wonderful. Remember when we were kids and we could lay in the grass and watch the clouds go by, seeing all kinds of creatures and shapes in them?

Remember quiet, sunlit corners of a house where you could curl up and read a book? Remember watching twilight come on, when the birds still sing but fireflies have begun to twinkle?

Someone once said that if we want to know the proper pace of human life, we should spend a day in nature just observing…and then go and do likewise.

That weekend was a revelation. I haven’t been the same since. I got something back that these last couple years have tried to steal from me—a sense of peace and freedom.

Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

They answered Him, “We are Abraham’s descendants, and have never been in bondage to anyone. How can You say, ‘You will be made free’?”

Jesus answered them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.  And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.  Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.

John 8:31-36

Freedom is a hallmark of our Republic. This is the “Land of the Free.” The darkness that overshadows our institutions is not permanent. It is no more permanent than the shape of a cloud. It will dissipate as we hold onto the freedom that first comes from within.

When Incarnate Truth stood forth in the midst of His enemies, they fell down.

The battle is always in the mind first. The Synagogue of Satan seeks to reign through despair and fear and tyranny.

I do not consent to fear. I do not consent to tyranny. I do not consent to despair.

I consent to Faith, Hope, and Charity.

I am free born.

And I aim to stay that way.

HOUSE RULES

We’ve got gallons of Sangria coming along at the bar, but first let’s review the Rules. Wolf has managed to keep this place going through thick and thin, and we salute him with a sense of gratitude and camaraderie.

Those who need to have a case of the nasties can head over to the Utree (where there’s some “dangerous freedom”), which is also a place to reconvene in case something happens here.

THE PARTY SPIRIT

I’ll never forget the summer party we had one year in upstate New York.  I can’t remember the exact reason for the party, but we ended up with about 100 people in the backyard. Father Brown (God rest his soul) had insisted we serve Sangria, which the Italians in our group had perfected.

We went through gallons of the stuff that night. The Party Spirit was upon everyone. It reminded me of one of those times when my parents used to have bridge parties and us kids could hardly sleep for all the laughter that wafted up the stairs for hours on end.

It was like that. There seemed no end to the Sangria. Let’s put it this way, I don’t even remember what kind of food we served. I vaguely remember a grill. I just remember laughter and friendship and more laughter.

We will have times like that again.

SANGRIA IS SUMMER SIPPING AT ITS BEST

Sangria is a Spanish/Portuguese wine punch, and there are many different recipes for it. In general, sangria has red wine (sometimes white), fresh fruit (typically oranges, apples, and lemons) and often brandy or another spirit. Here’s a couple videos that give different recipes. They both look scrumptious:

Also, here’s a whole bunch of recipes for Sangria. Take your pick! For our teetotalers here’s a recipe for a Virgin Sangria.  You can find some history about Sangria here and here and here. And just because Sangria is all the rage in tapas bars nowadays, I’ve included an ancient Roman recipe for an olive spread in this video below:

Whether today is a day that will live in infamy, or a day where nothing much happens, I salute the Qtree! I’m singing along with this video:

Related to Wray’s questioning by Gaetz:

There are 1000 open FBI investigations according to this PowerPoint (slide 3)

https://researchservices.cornell.edu/sites/default/files/2020-09/2020.09.16%20-%20Disclosing%20Foreign%20Relationships_Export%20Control.pdf

87 institutions, 150 researchers under investigation thru the NIH alone. (Slide 4)

Cornell is reported to be one of the institutions under investigation.

How is it that a target of an investigation had details of these ONE THOUSAND open investigations to share with staff in September 2020, but Congress and US citizens aren’t privy to the information today?

@ 19 minutes Dr Navarro lets drop this little nugget I never heard before:

Not only was Hunter doing pay for play in the Ukraine but he got a BILLION DOLLARS to BUY UP FACTORIES IN MICHIGAN AND SHIP THEM TO CHINA!!!!

Gee, I wonder how many of those salt of the earth union workers knew that before they voted for Bite-me?

AZ is a big deal because John McCain and the Rothschilds run that state.
Sedona forum has an annual meeting featuring globalists who are not nice people.
https://www.thesedonaforum.org/
John is no longer a player? but Cindy still is. Lynn Rothschild is always there. You can go back through the years and see who attended and what they spoke about.

LEADERS CONVENE IN SEDONA TO DISCUSS GLOBAL CRISES AND OPPORTUNITIESWASHINGTON (April 23, 2018) – Top government, business, human rights, humanitarian, university and student leaders, joined by U.S. senators from both sides of the aisle, convened for the sixth annual Sedona Forum held April 20-22, 2018 by the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University in Sedona Arizona.
Participants at the Forum included senior Trump administration officials Secretary of Defense Mattis and CIA Director Pompeo; U.S. Senators Sheldon Whitehouse, Dan Sullivan, Amy Klobuchar, Ben Sasse, Heidi Heitkamp, Jeff Flake and Lindsey Graham; and many distinguished leaders from around the world.
The McCain Institute kicked off the Forum Friday evening with former Senator Joe Lieberman moderating a dinner conversation with Mike Pompeo, Director of the CIA, and secretary of state nominee. Saturday’s sessions started with a conversation between Secretary of Defense James Mattis, and McCain Institute trustee and former Senator Kelly Ayotte.
Cindy McCain presented the McCain Institute’s 2018 Courage and Leadership Award to the Syrian humanitarian relief group of volunteers, the White Helmets. Known for the color of the helmets they wear during search-and-rescue operations, the Syrian Civil Defence is a group of nearly 3,000 volunteers who provide humanitarian relief to all Syrians in area where they are permitted to operate, based on the values of neutrality, impartiality and humanity.
The Saturday luncheon discussion featured Cindy McCain, with Ashton Kutcher, co-founder of Thorn, a non-profit organization dedicated to stopping the sale and abuse of children, with a special emphasis on disruptive technology to accomplish that goal. Cindy McCain is a leader in the crusade to stop human trafficking and leads the McCain Institute’s programs in this area. Through Cindy McCain, the McCain Institute partnership with Thorn has resulted in identifying almost 6,000 victims of human trafficking.
“The challenges and threats the United States currently face around the world can only be confronted effectively when there is open dialogue and shared goals. That is why the Sedona Forum is so important to us both, and frankly, why it was created,” said Senator John McCain and Cindy McCain in their letter welcoming this year’s participants.
“The Sedona Forum lets national and international leaders build relationships and size up solutions in a way our hyper-charged information and political environment too often prevents,” said Ambassador Kurt Volker, who has served as Executive Director of the McCain Institute since its inception in 2012. More than 200 participated in this year’s Forum from around the world to explore strategies that can resolve conflict, save lives and improve opportunities for all communities.
Every year, the Sedona Forum brings to Arizona influential military, political, humanitarian, academic and human rights leaders for a weekend of discussions centered on leadership and advancing U.S. national security and foreign policy. The next Forum will be held in May 2019.

If AZ can stop these globalists, the other states should also be able to have honest audits and elections.
God Bless and protect Wendy Rogers and all the patriots standing up for America.

WHITE HELMETS???

WHITE HELMETS: Organ Traffickers, Child Kidnappers,Thieves, Terrorists, Propagandists… or “Saints”?

The White Helmets, “volunteers” who reportedly “rescue Syrians from rubble.” Never in history has such a group been so feted by the elite, or received so many awards from institutions acting as extensions of US and UK hegemony.

A recent panel at the UN Security Council in New York revealed the shocking evidence of White Helmet involvement in organ trafficking in Syria. The lucrative trade of human body parts, bones, blood and organs is one of the most protected and hidden harvests of war.

The potential of White Helmet involvement in these nefarious activities raises questions that must be answered. Why were the shocking revelations met by a wall of silence from corporate media present at the panel in New York?

Not one media outlet pursued the subject, preferring to divert onto more comfortable issues that did not challenge the iconization of the White Helmets that has been the default position for virtually all state-aligned media since the establishment of the group in 2013 in Jordan and Turkey….

They gassed the Syrian people, blaming others, and staged videos portraying themselves as the good guys. SPIT!!

Amen goes right there Miss Liz!

Never heard of him, but for him forcing Abbotts hand on the border wall.
Seems he’s Dallas. Also says he won’t take any money as Gov.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don_Huffines

his election site with vid.

https://donhuffines.com

Besides the wall and election integrity issues he says he’ll eliminate property tax.

I like West! But won’t it be fun to watch Abbott jump through conservative hoops because of West and Huffines.   :wpds_cool:

Summary: The investment firm of Goldman Sachs required employees who are returning to work at the corporate offices to report their “vaccination status” by 12 Noon yesterday, June 10, 2021. While the company does not [yet] require employees to be “vaccinated”, all employees were required to “register their vaccination status” so that their “safer return” could be planned.

Another WIN!! 🤸‍♀️🤩🤸‍♀️

He Who Is Sorely Missed.

ForGodandCountry

I see people noticed what AG Garland said/did today…

…which was, in essence, to publicly admit the current, fraudulent, fake PedoJoe regime is terrified of the AZ audit.

Hmmm.

Linda

Yep. Plus 7+ states have already gone for a tour of the audit and 9 more are coming. It’s spreading!

SteveInCO

I can’t quite fathom why Colorado is among them.

Unless it’s to learn how to frustrate any audit done here.
