I actually gave up counted cross stitch a number of years ago, but will do this:

Yes, I actually made all of that.

Okay, so, first an observation:

Some good news out there about the COVID jab mandates:

Here’s a perfectly legit question:

Carole Mac@HerbsandDirt I wonder how many homeopathic or natural remedies they’ve overtly vilified are actually THE answer to healing so many ailments ? Clearly we see that it’s never been about health, safety & our well-being. The Food Pyramid should have been our first clue. 11:47 PM · Jun 20, 2021

I’m sure I can find more. Let’s see….

How’s this for Democrat diversity?

From Secretary Mike Pompeo:

I’d go on, but then what would we talk about in the comments?

Okay…I’ve been fighting a sinus migraine for days, and there are so many wacko things going on in this house, I can’t think right now. So, talk amongst yourselves. Thanks

Something to remember, always.

Per the boss’s instruction:

I’d throw in a few Rockefellers and Rothschilds also.

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 some mood music:

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.

GENESIS 13:2, 5-18

2Now Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. 5And Lot, who went with Abram, also had flocks and herds and tents, 6so that the land could not support both of them dwelling together; for their possessions were so great that they could not dwell together, 7and there was strife between the herdsmen of Abram’s cattle and the herdsmen of Lot’s cattle. At that time the Canaanites and the Per’izzites dwelt in the land. 8Then Abram said to Lot, “Let there be no strife between you and me, and between your herdsmen and my herdsmen; for we are kinsmen. 9Is not the whole land before you? Separate yourself from me. If you take the left hand, then I will go to the right; or if you take the right hand, then I will go to the left.” 10And Lot lifted up his eyes, and saw that the Jordan valley was well watered everywhere like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, in the direction of Zo’ar; this was before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomor’rah. 11So Lot chose for himself all the Jordan valley, and Lot journeyed east; thus they separated from each other. 12Abram dwelt in the land of Canaan, while Lot dwelt among the cities of the valley and moved his tent as far as Sodom. 13Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD. 14The LORD said to Abram, after Lot had separated from him, “Lift up your eyes, and look from the place where you are, northward and southward and eastward and westward; 15for all the land which you see I will give to you and to your descendants for ever. 16I will make your descendants as the dust of the earth; so that if one can count the dust of the earth, your descendants also can be counted. 17Arise, walk through the length and the breadth of the land, for I will give it to you.” 18So Abram moved his tent, and came and dwelt by the oaks of Mamre, which are at Hebron; and there he built an altar to the LORD.

While I tend not to believe in homeopathy, it does obey the idea of “first, do no harm”.

I *am* a believer in low-dose, however, as something which not only works in a lot of cases, but which needs more investigation, understanding, and practice.

wheatietoo

Mankind survived for thousands of years with ‘homeopathy’, boss.

It is the basis for today’s modern medicine.

At a time when our trust in doctors is being shattered…and realizing that Big Pharma wants to keep us sick…it’s good to have homeopathy to fall back on.

ForGodandCountry

Just wait until the public realizes that the medical community has been lying to the public all along, and 80-90% of all prescriptions, diagnosis, and medical procedures were either unnecessary, unwarranted, or could have been treated with cheap drug alternatives (ie. homeopathy).

Because let’s face it….most people become doctors for the $$, and if $$ wasn’t the #1 reason, it was in the top 2-3 reasons.

singingsoul1

I told a doctor that I had not seen one in there office over 30 years he said to me ” stay out of hospitals and you will live a long life.”
Yes doctors want to prescribe meds. My doctor has given up and I only see him once a year. Often I ask myself why I even see him. I do like that I get a blood test that is good and does catch thinks early.

Aubergine

That is what I do, too. Blood work once a year, to see how things are going.

If I could do it to myself, I’d never see a doctor. I know there are labs out there that will do blood work for me, but I couldn’t draw my own blood I don’t think.

singingsoul1

I dislike needles never poke myself 🙂

TheseTruths

When you order the blood work yourself, you go to a local lab (depending on which lab the company you choose, uses). Then the lab submits your sample and you are sent the results.

I know that I don’t have the expertise to draw blood, and I would not be able to do it on myself.

I buy my tests online, then go to Quest for blood draw. I’ve become pretty good at researching what the values mean, been doing it for others and now myself for over 5 years. ‘I’ have to monitor and manage my own iron and ferritin values frequently and respond accordingly. Doctors have ZERO clue.

Aubergine

Good info! Thanks.

bflyjesusgrl

I’ve found the 2 cheapest sites for LabCorp and Quest tests. They have periodic sales. I purchased my August annual test back in March for 20% off. 🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️ Each test has a 6 month time limit.

bflyjesusgrl

FYI, the labs do all the leg work for you. All the tests have ranges, so if the values fall within you’re deemed normal. It’s only when they aren’t and you are higher or lower than the range (clearly flagged on test results) should the Doctors or you should pay attention. I’ve seen many times where Docs ignore an H or an L here and there. I know now to always go behind them and verify my lab work. I was able to take some here and theres, combined with symptoms, and diet, and ward off Kidney Stones. I also literally saved myself from death when I found a very important L that they missed. At this point my practice of medicine is better than their practice.

Aubergine

Mine is too! Good for us!!

gil00

You still have to monitor within range. Oncologist and cardiologists are very particular about changes within range, esp if they are creeping one direction.

RF121

The range is established based on the average population that is tested. This tends to be older and sicker. So do additional research. Low carb, keto also makes a difference.

gil00

Ty for specifics!

bflyjesusgrl

Yep. I scrutinize those too.

Grandmaintexas

We need a forum topic on this stuff.

Grandmaintexas

Same. Two cups of coffee (I do half decaf) and that is it. No more achy joints.

Coldeadhands

Amen

Wolf Moon

OK – maybe we’re not talking about the same thing here. This is what I mean:

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

I’m talking about this thing (dilution of analogous poisons to zero) invented in 1796 that is basically irrational, but which actually succeeds in many cases through a wonderful combination of:

(1) placebo effect
(2) most things just get better with patience and attention to basics
(3) no actual overdoses with real drugs, which often have side effects, don’t work, are all about the money, etc. (see killer quackery of failed money-pit Remdesivir)

I regard homeopathy as a kind of lovable underdog which is really an accidental scientific control TROLLING all the sins of regular medicine (or as the homeopaths call them, allopaths). Homeopathy is the literal embodiment of “first, do no harm”, and was even founded, in a sense, by the founder’s innate distaste for the poisoning of patients by crappy old drugs of that era, often relying on “alchemical” beauties like mercury which “worked” because they were basically poisons, killing microbes before larger organisms.

I respect homeopathy like an innocent bystander, which is far less blameworthy than the malevolent mafia medicine we have in big pharma now (Fauci, Gilead, Gates, current Pfizer, current Merck, sadly), but not as good as the “best” of patient-centered front-line medicine which figures out quickly what works and what doesn’t (Zelenko, Raoult, old Merck, old Lilly, etc.).

Big Pharma has been taken over by a literal mafia. I have stories I’m SAVING FOR COURT – gotta SAVE that ammo – but if I told you now, you would understand how dirty they’ve become.

Trump tried to show us. He really did.

Homeopaths only ever killed by trying not to kill. Mafia allopaths – I tell you – when I read the first clinical data on Remdesivir that Fauci was crowing about as a success, I was MORTIFIED. So many people who got it LOST KIDNEYS or DIED – when HCQ could have saved them. And the results were CRAP.

Horrifying.

wheatietoo

Ah. Yes, I definitely think we’re talking about two different things.

I was referring to using herbs and home remedies.

ForGodandCountry

exactly.

cthulhu

Herbs and traditional remedies actually use active substances in active concentrations. Homeopathy is an abstraction so far removed from the original proposition that it is unlikely to do anything.

Wolf Moon

That’s Western traditional medicine – completely analogous to Chinese traditional medicine or Native American medicine. That is “old allopathy”. THAT was medical SCIENCE based purely on observation and practice – the literal scientific method.

The problem was that the paradigm change of organic chemistry moved pharmacy and preparation of cures even further away from the physician. We got wonderful new cures from organic chemistry – but we also got a brand new bag of problems.

But when you see “homeopathic”, that is what it literally means – something which causes symptoms similar to the disease being treated – then being diluted to nothingness. It was an interesting speculative idea at the time, but it proved to run totally counter to emerging science.

Now here is some cool science. There is nothing that I know of that forbids a universe where homeopathy works – where space and things in it are literally imprinted at some active level with memories of their pasts. But everything we know about this universe seems to show no sign of either the imprinting or reading of “material memories beyond the materials themselves”. There is some possibility that such effects could still be found, but it seems unlikely, and at present, I have no need for that hypothesis, so to speak – even for my belief in God. 😃

wheatietoo

And all this time I thought that the term ‘homeopathy’ just referred to all natural herbal cures and home remedies.

Thanks for schooling me on it, Wolfie.
 😊 

Wolf Moon

No problem! Happy to make a small contribution to the amazing amount of knowledge shared on this site!

piper567

Another fact which many people do not know is that many of the earlier “drugs” were simply a product of isolating the active principle in plant materials (oftentimes time-tested by native uses or tradition), and then synthesizing that principle so that a “new” product might be marketed…and, in general, restricted by prescription.

There is an European Herbal Pharmacopeia which ab 15-20 years ago was first made available, translated to English.
MDs in Europe can write for herbals, or some do, bc the production of certain product is highly monitored as to potency and efficacy.
There are Monographs available, as reprints from this pharmacopeia, on individual plants, their analyses, studies, and application to various diagnoses.

For example, Stinging Nettle (Urtica dioica) is listed as a prescription for benign prostatic hyperplasia, and it is the plant material which is utilized in formulating the script, not a synthesis of an active principle.

I do not know whether such prescriptions remain available, but the monographs may be located with a bit of effort.
They are remarkably informative, and include thorough analysis of the chemistry involved, and standardized Studies which justify their use for whichever diagnosis is being studied.

cthulhu

You can find a great example with cinchona bark.

The cinchona plant was discovered in South America, and knowledge was hoarded. A decoction (boil the #$%@ out of it, because it doesn’t really dissolve in water) was used to heal fevers in royalty, and the secret spilled out.

This caused a “gold rush” effect, where people started scouring the jungles for this plant — and it turns out that Cinchona officinalis is not the best source for the extract — many other related species have more. Once the primary healing part was identified, it became known as quinine.

Soon, things got labeled “xxxx% quinine” to evaluate extracts from all the plants that had some. Then there was synthesized quinine, then nicely-buffered well-behaved hydroxycloroquine.

But the substance was so useful that it was used every step of the way.

piper567

cthulhu, Yes! fascinating. And many other such active principles require buffering, with marshmallow being among one such plant utilized.

cthulhu

I have about 12 ounces of cinchona bark on a shelf about 24″ to my left. I got it months ago. I’d rather have standardized, pure, buffered hydroxycloroquine (I could more easily adjust dose by weight, to cite only one reason) — but the murderous bastards in “healthcare” have made it a prescription medication and banned it…..then banned doctors prescribing it, then banned pharmacists dispensing it, then youfoob and twatter banned discussing it in order to maximize the death toll.

It was OTC (over-the-counter) in France until 1/15/20 [ https://www.trustnodes.com/2020/03/30/france-banned-chloroquine-days-before-first-western-scientific-report-on-pandemic ]. Someone signed the order taking it off the market. That person would be a great candidate to be slowly lowered into a pool of molten lead until they disclosed who had told them to do that and released every document involved.

Aubergine

I have cinchona bark, too. Just in case. 🙂

piper567

cthulhu, I wish conservatives were just half as good at covering all the bases as are the marxists.

SteveInCO

Yes, I got sucked in by that misunderstanding myself.

Actual homeopathy is bunk.

Concerned Virginian

My late husband had severe allergies and was told by several allopathic MD’s that he would need to take allergy shots and drugs for the rest of his life.
Instead, he looked around and found a Homeopathic MD who practiced at the old Hahnemann Homeopathic Hospital in San Francisco. This doctor made a compound for my husband that he took for 10 years. The compound completely eliminated the allergies.

bflyjesusgrl

I had a co-worker that went weekly for allergy shots. It just never made sense to me to get one’s self injected with dirt and dog hair, much less the laundry list of other substances he talked about. Sounds like a racket to me.

Herbalists have gotten more sophisticated by understanding and using the science behind the herbs and traditional treatments.

I think most herbalists also have a real desire to help, versus the desire for money which is an infectious disease amongst allopathic doctors.

Aubergine

I knew what you meant. And I stand by what I said; prevention not cure.

SteveInCO

Ounce of prevention vs. pound of cure is true, surely.

And I am convince a lot of “modern” recommendations for prevention are crap.

All too often though it ends up being water under the bridge, then you do have to try to figure out which pound of cure is best.

The good news (take that with a dose of iron-y) is the “modern” cures are slightly higher than crap, on average, at least as compared to the “preventions” suggested.

Aubergine

Yeah.

SteveInCO

Homeopathy is not the same as natural medicines.

Homeopathy is based on the premise that the lower the dose the more effective it is. They dilute the active ingredient, sometimes so much that there may not be so much as a single molecule of it in the dose. How can it possibly do anything for you (beyond a placebo effect) at that point?

singingsoul1

Herbs can help also herbal tea but need to be consumed in small quantities when appropriate. To often the hype is this is good and people take it if sick or not. Dr Weil whom I respect one time said ” if we take herbal medicine , that is what it is, when there is no need then what are we going to take when sick?”
For instand I only drink a cup of mint tea when I have an upset stomach no other time.
Only make a potion of hot water lemon, grated ginger and honey when I feel a cold coming on no other time. I use herbs and teas as medicine not just drink it when ever.
I only drink herbal liquor after a particular meal for digestion not for fun. I learned this also from my grandmothers.

Aubergine

Wise.

People have corrupted the uses of what should be medicines into everyday pleasures.

Alcohol comes to mind. A small amount of alcohol every day is healthy. My grands and great-grands drank one small shot daily, no more. Remember those teeny-tiny antique cordial glasses? But we don’t do it that way anymore.

singingsoul1

“Remember those teeny-tiny antique cordial glasses?”

I have those tiny cordial glasses from my in laws 🙂 I have all their glasses. Gave some to kids and still have to many.
All in moderation.

Aubergine

If you take care of your body with low “doses” of beneficial herbs and natural medicines, your body takes care of the rest.

That is the point of homeopathy. Not to cure, but to prevent.

Cuppa Covfefe

Does that make you Homeophobic?

He then says, “that reminds me of a carol” and proceeds to sing “On the first day of Christmas”… Tim is left in the dust, having started singing “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire”….

Beats chess nuts boasting in an open foyer, I guess)…

Ha ha!

I found this at Urban Dictionary:

Pipe Hitters

A terminology often used to categorize the elite, special operations, direct action units of the United States Military. Delta Force (CAG), SEAL Team 6 (DEVGRU), the 75th Ranger Regiment, SEALS, and some elements Special Forces groups (Green Berets) are all considered “Pipe Hitters”… Marine Force Recon kind of, sort of falls into this category also. All of these units are highly respectable, well trained, top of their branch, operators.

1) When everyone on the objective must die and no structures need be left standing, call in the “Pipe Hitters”.

2) There is a definitive difference between the standard Soldier/Marine/Sailor and those who are referred to as the “Pipe Hitters” of the military.

It has been a bad allergy season, Wheatie. I usually have mild symptoms, but this year it’s hitting me a lot harder. Could be the combination of leftover Covid symptoms plus all the pollen.

wheatietoo

The leftists are blaming it on ‘climate change’.
🙄
But I think it’s a combination of wind patterns and the fact that some areas had an early Spring, while others had a late Spring.
This has led to a longer pollen season.

piper567

wheatie…I noticed that also.
I park out side, and we had two bouts with pollen this year.
It was so thick, I had to brush it off my windshield before I could rinse it off…otherwise it was a sort of mud.
we have had a bit of see saw weather, which, I agree, has contributed.

Aubergine

Oh we have cottonwoods here, too! They are the WORST. It’s like snowing allergy hell.

bflyjesusgrl

I KNEW something wasn’t right with you!

Yes, allergies, and accompanying headaches, have been horrendous this year. I am finally getting control over non-stop watery, runny eyes & nose, sneezing, ear, eye pain and headaches.

This has been my routine for several years. I take a Zyrtec daily, which stops a lot of symptoms. If it’s real bad, then I add a Sudafed (Kroger brand) low dose, as many as needed until symptoms stop. Minor days 1-2, bad days up to 6. May take Aspirin PRN for pounding headaches, that the Sudafed won’t stop.

Back in December I started using Serrapeptase. It’s a mucous thinner. It’s totally diminished the need for daily Sudafed. Some weeks, I haven’t taken any! 🤸‍♀️🤸‍♀️ Helped me to figure out recent headaches were due to low iron, not sinuses.

Hope you and DP feel better soon! 🤗🤗😘😘❤❤❤

wheatietoo

Thanks, Butterfly!
🥰🤗💖
Sorry to hear that you’re getting hit too!

Unfortunately, I’m allergic to aspirin…so I use Ibuprofen instead.
Guaifenesin and Benadryl work pretty well for me with the mucous & watery eyes/runny nose…since I get some bad side effects with most everything else.

It was nice…I’ll take it!
Temps will go back up to the 80’s and 90’s, though, for the rest of the week.

Yes, I’m in Salem, western Oregon. It often gets in the 90s in eastern Oregon in the summer, but it’s generally cooler on this side of the mountains.

Straight from an overlong winter to a heat wave!

Any hotter would be a net benefit; we could cook bacon without adding to our energy bill.

Not a heatwave, just people cooking MOAR Bacon. 😉🥓🥓😋😋

BIG TECH, BIG MEDIA, BIG MONEY: Full Circle to the D.C. Swamp
June 21, 2021

Intro: “On 17 Jun 21, the Biden administration announced its intent to allocate $3 billion from the ‘Save America Plan’ to invest in antiviral medications relative to COVID-19 and the patently and demonstrably fraudulent COVID-19 pandemic and the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Antiviral medications are generally taken orally and early in the infection timeline to mitigate the illness.

Given the abundance of tedious and arduous investigation into the COVID-19 pandemic and our respective findings, through the lens of a fraud investigator, the decision raises several important questions but none more important than asking if this might be a circular flow of money.”

Who Owns Big Pharma + Big Media? You’ll Never Guess.

BlackRock and the Vanguard Group, the two largest asset management firms in the world, combined own The New York Times and other legacy media, along with Big Pharma.

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

Story at-a-glance:

Big Pharma and mainstream media are largely owned by two asset management firms: BlackRock and Vanguard.

Drug companies are driving COVID-19 responses — all of which, so far, have endangered rather than optimized public health — and mainstream media have been willing accomplices in spreading their propaganda, a false official narrative that leads the public astray and fosters fear based on lies.

Vanguard and BlackRock are the top two owners of Time Warner, Comcast, Disney and News Corp, four of the six media companies that control more than 90% of the U.S. media landscape.

BlackRock and Vanguard form a secret monopoly that own just about everything else you can think of too. In all, they have ownership in 1,600 American firms, which in 2015 had combined revenues of $9.1 trillion. When you add in the third-largest global owner, State Street, their combined ownership encompasses nearly 90% of all S&P 500 firms.

Vanguard is the largest shareholder of BlackRock. Vanguard itself, on the other hand, has a unique structure that makes its ownership more difficult to discern, but many of the oldest, richest families in the world can be linked to Vanguard funds.

What does The New York Times and a majority of other legacy media have in common with Big Pharma? Answer: They’re largely owned by BlackRock and the Vanguard Group, the two largest asset management firms in the world. Moreover, it turns out these two companies form a secret monopoly that owns just about everything else you can think of too. As reported in the featured video:

“The stock of the world’s largest corporations are owned by the same institutional investors. They all own each other. This means that ‘competing’ brands, like Coke and Pepsi aren’t really competitors, at all, since their stock is owned by exactly the same investment companies, investment funds, insurance companies, banks and in some cases, governments.

“The smaller investors are owned by larger investors. Those are owned by even bigger investors. The visible top of this pyramid shows only two companies whose names we have often seen …They are Vanguard and BlackRock.

“The power of these two companies is beyond your imagination. Not only do they own a large part of the stocks of nearly all big companies but also the stocks of the investors in those companies. This gives them a complete monopoly.

“A Bloomberg report states that both these companies in the year 2028, together will have investments in the amount of 20 trillion dollars. That means that they will own almost everything.’”

Eventually they will run out of tissue (because they’ll wreck the economy to the point where none can be made**), and then that will be an issue.

**A reliable way to tell how communist a country is, is to see how hard it is to find toilet paper (I mean in normal times, not covid-like panics). The USSR never had toilet paper, fortunately Pravda was printed on cheap paper and was reasonably absorbent. And toilet paper is known also as toilet tissue.

You do realize those are the ones who are the most fun to razz about it?

Not only is it great fun, but if you care about them, you won’t let them drift into a fantasy world of denial and detachment from reality.

Mocking, teasing and other means of provoking cognitive dissonance between the falsity of what they choose to believe and what is actually true is a LIFELINE back to reality.

“The mental anguish is going to be unbearable for some.”

______________

They’ll be just fine. There was a time in our country, so recently that I still remember it well, when regular Americans were of a much heartier stock.

A time when people could be wrong about something, and instead of catering to their error and enabling them to create an entire life around it, we just told them they were wrong, and then showed them, if necessary.

And… the world kept right on spinning… just like it always has.

But for some reason, we’ve decided to infantilize the entire adult population.

(in my best Robin Leach voice): And I don’t know why! 😂

I do know why, actually.

It’s due to the FEMINIZATION of literally EVERYTHING.

And that’s not good.

“What, you don’t have any sense of guilt?”

_______________

I have a strong sense of guilt, and the last thing I would want to do is exacerbate that sense of guilt by leaving someone in a state of perpetual unreality.

Unreality, or self-induced insanity, is a horrible way to live. I have seen it.

Seeing someone caught up in unreality, and doing nothing to help them, is an error of omission and commission.

There is no guilt in seeing someone in need of assistance.

But choosing not to help them?

Now that sounds like something to feel guilty about.

.

“My mother, Catholic as can be, grew up in a neighborhood with a lot of Jewish kids. Guilt is her thing. She refuses to entertain the idea that vaccines are anything less than good.”

______________

Then why not help her, instead of enabling her?

You are uniquely qualified, more so than at least 95% (probably higher) of the population, to show and explain and bring her up to speed. Your Mom has an expert in the house. She has no idea how lucky she is, that not only do you understand the big picture, the medium picture and the small picture, but you also have the capability to explain it and show it in a way that is easy to understand.

Your Mom is so fortunate to have someone like you to explain it to her, she should be skipping the light fandango, and turning cartwheels ‘cross the floor 👍 😁

Something like this:

“Mom, I hate to break the news to ya, and you’re right about a lot of things, and you know how grateful I am for that.

On this one though, I found out some information, facts, and I think you’re going to be amazed. It’s fascinating, and it’s going to give us so much to talk about, the other kids are going to be jealous. All of them. 😁

But after we both know and understand it, we can explain it to the rest of the family together.

I thought long and hard about not telling you, and not showing you these things, but I love you too much to let you stick your head in the sand (or anywhere else your head shouldn’t go) on matters of LIFE and DEATH.

So I printed these articles out for you. Please read them in order. Take your time. Soak it in. Read them twice, three times if necessary. You don’t have to believe any of it, or understand all of it, don’t worry about that. Just read it, so you are familiar with the basic framework, the concepts, the terminology.

Then we can watch a few videos together, and when you have questions, we’ll pause the video and answer them.”

.

“When she realizes what has been done…and that she’s immune from the COVID stuff because she has a negative RH factor, it will be debilitating.”

____________

Why? Why wouldn’t she be grateful to be shown that she was wrong, that she can stop believing something that is untrue, she can stop fearing something that isn’t true, and start believing in something that is true, and she will be better off in every way?

Believing things that are not true is unhelpful at best, and deadly at worst.

Believing things which are true, and which we can back up with facts and evidence, is empowering.

Normal, healthy people, given the opportunity, will choose learning what is true over believing something that is false nearly every time. Even if it’s only so they won’t feel left out or embarrassed when being around other people who do know the truth.

That’s one of the least noble reasons to embrace the truth, but by setting the bar so low, nearly every member of the species cannot help but surmount it. 👍

.

“And then there’s the rest of my hypochondriac friends and family who won’t blow their noses without asking a physician if it’s appropriate.”

_____________

Coddle… or mock (or gently tease, if mocking is too harsh) and educate.

Coddling leads to enabling.

Teasing leads to doubt and uncertainty, which is the crack in the door you need, in order to shine the light of truth inside. 👍 🙂

Okay, that’s a different problem, requiring a different solution.

A ‘Plan A‘ so to speak (the ‘break in’), before you can implement ‘Plan B‘ (leaving the facts and evidence in the vault in order to reboot the brain, before making your escape) 😁

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to overcome the target’s one-dimensional defense, plant the seeds of truth, and make your way back to the rendezvous point for extraction.

As always, should you or any member of your Qtree team be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions.

When we explained to people the truth about something (and showed them, if necessary), we didn’t wonder if they might ‘get it’ or not, we expected them to ‘get it’.

They had a responsibility to ‘get it’, to be on Team Reality, and that expectation went a long way toward helping them ‘get it’.

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.

“White House to concede it’s likely to miss July 4 vaccination target”
Down and Dirty Summary:

The White House is walking back the threat made by “President” Biden a few months ago that he would cancel 4th of July celebrations in the United States if 70% of the population were not “vaccinated” against the Wuhan coronavirus. (Me: Unfortunately, of course, the threat, included in a nationwide broadcast, was also all over Youtube and the internet. He can’t deny that he made the threat.)
The White House trotted out Jeffrey Zients, a hack who is also the “head” of the “White House COVID response team” to state “it will take a few extra weeks” to get to the 70% goal. (Me: In their dreams.)
GET THIS: Now, all of a sudden, the White House is going have a party on Independence Day for 1,000 “members of the armed forces and frontline workers.” (Me: Bet that’ll be something ** interesting **. Wonder if it will be “closed press”. Nothing like trying to upstage REALPOTUS 45 Donald Trump’s planned 4th of July celebration, is there now?)

OUCH.

A Court Ruled Rachel Maddow’s Viewers Know She Offers Exaggeration and Opinion, Not Facts
“Maddow’s show is different than a typical news segment where anchors inform viewers about the daily news,” an Obama-appointed judge ruled.

Glenn Greenwald
4 hr ago

https://greenwald.substack.com/p/a-court-ruled-rachel-maddows-viewers

MSNBC’s top-rated host Rachel Maddow devoted a segment in 2019 to accusing the right-wing cable outlet One America News (OAN) of being a paid propaganda outlet for the Kremlin. Discussing a Daily Beast article which noted that one OAN reporter was a “Russian national” who was simultaneously writing copy for the Russian-owned outlet Sputnik on a freelance contract, Maddow escalated the allegation greatly into a broad claim about OAN’s real identity and purpose: “in this case,” she announced, “the most obsequiously pro-Trump right wing news outlet in America really literally is paid Russian propaganda.”

In response, OAN sued Maddow, MSNBC, and its parent corporation Comcast, Inc. for defamation, alleging that it was demonstrably false that the network, in Maddow’s words, “literally is paid Russian propaganda.” In an oddly overlooked ruling, an Obama-appointed federal judge, Cynthia Bashant, dismissed the lawsuit on the ground that even Maddow’s own audience understands that her show consists of exaggeration, hyperbole, and pure opinion, and therefore would not assume that such outlandish accusations are factually true even when she uses the language of certainty and truth when presenting them (“literally is paid Russian propaganda”).

In concluding that Maddow’s statement would be understood even by her own viewers as non-factual, the judge emphasized that what Maddow does in general is not present news but rather hyperbole and exploitation of actual news to serve her liberal activism:

On one hand, a viewer who watches news channels tunes in for facts and the goings-on of the world. MSNBC indeed produces news, but this point must be juxtaposed with the fact that Maddow made the allegedly defamatory statement on her own talk show news segment where she is invited and encouraged to share her opinions with her viewers. Maddow does not keep her political views a secret, and therefore, audiences could expect her to use subjective language that comports with her political opinions.

Thus, Maddow’s show is different than a typical news segment where anchors inform viewers about the daily news. The point of Maddow’s show is for her to provide the news but also to offer her opinions as to that news. Therefore, the Court finds that the medium of the alleged defamatory statement makes it more likely that a reasonable viewer would not conclude that the contested statement implies an assertion of objective fact.

She missed admitting to complete hysteria, but otherwise pretty spot on!

LOL! Yes, when she’s completely at wit’s end, that’s always the best. She looks like she’s seconds away from sobbing uncontrollably.

The Alex Jones of the left!

“Therefore, the Court finds that the medium of the alleged defamatory statement makes it more likely that a **reasonable viewer** would not conclude that the contested statement implies an assertion of objective fact.”
There’s your problem.
Someone switched this judge to stupid, then turned it another click, up to willfully stupid.
How many commies are reasonable?
How many of the freaks acting out have the discriminating powers of a 9 year old even.

no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case (as they wouldn’t want to end up on the Clinton body count list)…spit!

OF COURSE WE KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN:
Remember how it ** appeared ** that Sen. Joe Manchin (D, WVA) could actually think and act for the REAL good of the country? That was then — this is NOW:

“Schumer, Manchin strike deal ahead of election bill vote”

Down and Dirty Summary:
Sen. Joe Manchin has struck a “deal” with Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer, ensuring that Manchin will vote WITH the DemCommunists to get the “For the People Act” (S,1) onto the Senate floor for debate. Manchin had previously gone on record as opposing the bill. Manchin and Schumer announced the “deal” after a closed-door meeting. This meeting took place after RobberJoe’s handlers spoke with Manchin privately.
Manchin’s “reward” in return for his caving in is that Schumer will “allow” a debate and a vote on Manchin’s amendment to the bill.
(My opinion: There’s probably also a couple of “sweeteners” that were promised behind closed-doors to Manchin for his caving in, like some “earmarks” for West Virginia.)
Once a DemCommunist, always a DemCommunist.

This is why Trump insisted on holding negotiations with Congress publicly.

And this is why Congress just absolutely hated that.

Manchin – the bastard son of a snake oil salesman and a cheap whore.

Manchin plays the deplorable and they fall for it. West Virginia seem to believe him and he plays them over and over.

It’s a classic victim/abuser cycle.

I hope also that they find more people alive. I heard people are banging from insight the rubble.

Kristen Sinema had better hold the line on the filibuster, or America is over.

My understanding is Manchin and Sinema are still holding the line on filibuster.

Sinema is being targeted by ads and surely arm twisting behind the scenes.

My understanding is R-Cons can derail the D-Rat bill to hijack America’s federal elections. It is not a vote the Hoe can simply break and 50-50 tie.

If I am out to lunch, someone please correct me.

Aubergine

I think you are correct.
