2 Peter 3: 10-11 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.  Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be?

How Should We Live Our Lives?

Galatians 2:20    I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Ephesians 4:29-32    Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Colossians 1:10    So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.

Romans 12:1-2    I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Micah 6:8    He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

Romans 12:1    I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.

Proverbs 3:5    Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  Jeremiah 29:11    

Colossians 3:12-17    Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. …

Matthew 6:33    But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Romans 12:2    Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.

John 15:8    By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.

Ephesians 4:25    Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.

Philippians 2:14-15    Do all things without grumbling or questioning, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,

2 Peter 3:1-18    This is now the second letter that I am writing to you, beloved. In both of them I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.” For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God, …

Ephesians 4:32    Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Hebrews 13:5    Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

1 John 1:9    If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Proverbs 16:1-20:30    The plans of the heart belong to man, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord. All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble. Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished. …

Romans 8:28    And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

1 Corinthians 10:31    So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

Mark 12:30-31    And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Psalm 139:23    Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts!

Ephesians 4:29    Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

1 John 3:1-10    See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure. Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. …

Hebrews 12:12-16    Therefore lift your drooping hands and strengthen your weak knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be put out of joint but rather be healed. Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no “root of bitterness” springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled; that no one is sexually immoral or unholy like Esau, who sold his birthright for a single meal.

Psalm 119:1-176    Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those who keep his testimonies, who seek him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in his ways! You have commanded your precepts to be kept diligently. Oh that my ways may be steadfast in keeping your statutes! …

John 15:5    I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

2 Corinthians 5:17    Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Luke 9:23    And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.

Psalm 91:1-16    He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence. He will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler. You will not fear the terror of the night, nor the arrow that flies by day, …

1 Corinthians 11:1    Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.

Luke 10:30-37    Jesus replied, “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. Now by chance a priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. So likewise a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. He went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. …

Psalm 119:105    Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.

Matthew 6:26    Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

Matthew 22:37-40    And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”

Revelation 12:11    And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death.

John 4:24    God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Colossians 3:1-25    If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. …

John 10:10    The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.

Luke 1:37    For nothing will be impossible with God.”

Colossians 2:1-23    For I want you to know how great a struggle I have for you and for those at Laodicea and for all who have not seen me face to face, that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments. For though I am absent in body, yet I am with you in spirit, rejoicing to see your good order and the firmness of your faith in Christ. …

Mark 16:15    And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.

Mark 10:45    For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, …

Romans 8:13    For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.

John 6:57    As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me.

Matthew 11:29    Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Colossians 3:23    Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,

1 John 2:15-17    Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

1 John 2:6    Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.

Matthew 10:37-39    Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.

John 15:16    You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.

Psalm 37:4    Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Colossians 1:16    For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him.

Acts 17:28    For “‘In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’

1 Corinthians 10:13    No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.

Matthew 28:20    Teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Psalm 119:89    Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.

Philippians 1:21    For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.

John 13:35    By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

1 Peter 2:5    You yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Ephesians 5:25    Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,

Proverbs 19:21    Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.

John 14:6    Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

1 Thessalonians 5:18    Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Matthew 5:13-16    “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Proverbs 13:20    Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.

1 Timothy 4:7    Have nothing to do with irreverent, silly myths. Rather train yourself for godliness;

Proverbs 22:6    Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.

2 Timothy 2:2    And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.

Hebrews 13:7    Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith.

Proverbs 18:21    Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

1 Timothy 4:12    Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.

We live, such that when all is done,
we may give all the glory to God.

Jeremiah 29:11  For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  John 3:16-17  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.  Hebrews 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.  Romans 5:8 But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Ephesians 2:6-7  And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.


On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, we can find something here that will build us up a little . . . give us a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God;
do not mourn nor weep.” . . .
“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet,
and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Prayers for Kentucky.

cthulhu

Prayers for all who got hurt or badly stomped by these storms, but mathematically more prayers for Kentucky. I stupidly thought I was done caring last night when I knew it was past DePat, then got a harsh lesson in the morning.

Deplorable Patriot

I heard from KEA. Something went over them the other night. They were in the basement and still have a standing house, but they did get hit.

RDS

Oh, Lord God.

kalbokalbs

Saw a Kea post this morning, at Marica’s place.

wheatietoo

Indeed, yes…those poor people.
 😟  🙏  😔 

When we first saw the drone footage of the damage, I said, “That was at least an F5.”

And they’ve now confirmed that it was an F5.

I’m so glad you’re back and posting. I missed you. I always looked for your posting OT.

New article from Political Moonshine:

Fractured Leadership Part V: Full Spectrum on Flynn with Marco Polo, Bearing Down on Byrne and Problems for President Trump and Truth Social
By Political Moonshine on December 11, 2021

11 Dec 21

Intro: “Getting straight to brass tacks, I’ll leave it to you to have parts I-IV under your belt before digging in here. They can be found on the homepage and it’s linked above. In this fifth article, we expand our considerations on Michael Flynn as informed by the crew at Marco Polo while also returning to one of the best and most accurate analytical brains in Sundance at Conservative Treehouse. He draws down on Byrne. In the end, it spells trouble for President Trump and Truth Social and the rat appears to be Patrick Byrne. Lin Wood is applauding.

Full Spectrum on Flynn
The Marco Polo crew brings counterbalance to the Flynn argument and it makes our spectrum of understanding on Flynn a fuller one.

The gap between the average age in the Marco Polo crew and my 50 years has me older and more jaded. It makes for a good intellectual balance. Consequently though, my jaded cynicism had me reversing course on Flynn to spend the first four parts of this sub-series painting Michael Flynn as Deep State functionary. I’m standing pat.

I would more specifically qualify that as Flynn not being someone who got into it for bad reasons but rather as someone who got into it for all of the right reasons, but stayed in it too long and rising too far to the top to avoid being enmeshed in it.

I suggest that Flynn ascended through certain lanes over a long enough timeline and to the right ends such that it caused him to become progressively caught-up beyond reconciliation. At a point, he simply walked around the final corner from which there would not be any return.

When and where that was, I don’t know. But it happened.

In that light, I suppose Flynn’s acquired knowledge base, which is fatal to a whole bunch of people who matter, could have served as the basis for him to present as a timely whistleblower through the appropriate channels for someone of his position and title. He never did that at any time in his career as far as research goes.

This leaves only one real plausible explanation for Flynn’s actions compared to his words, it’s the one I’ve outlined and it includes further exposure relative to Sidney Powell, her alleged financial improprieties that envelop Byrne, too, and a reported ongoing federal investigation into them.

Worthy of consideration and as an alternative explanation[s] are the perspectives of the Marco Polo crew to the extent that could plug right into the existing work. Here they are summarized.

One stance is that the roles of Byrne and Flynn as Deep State operatives is undermined by the elaborate nature that would be required for optics. It’s overlaid by questioning the capabilities of those positioned to accomplish it. Room is left for being near-sighted caused by fog-of-war that is evidenced by the attacks on Wood.

In another, agreement is found with the first position by attributing 1-the Steele dossier and 2-any such Byrne/Flynn operation to different entities and people; not the same cohort. Attribution is further given to the same criminal enterprise that is behind COVID-19.

Moonshine has it all converged on the same continuum and it’s been that way for a very long time.

A third take threw cards down onto the table including the Brennan ace by saying none of them were Deep State; meaning Flynn, Powell and Byrne. It further identified the Deep State as John Brennan. Moreover, Flynn is defined here as a “selfish ego hothead.”

Another take ventured down a swampier trail enveloping the impactful think tanks and other K-Street pressures as the Deep State; and further qualifying our group’s inclusion in it with an if/then statement centered on whether there is evidence of it. It’s left there; as a question.
Follow-up remarks cite Flynn’s speeches in places like Aspen; further noting his hubris and his inability to decline invitations to speak speak to power brokers.

My take on the Marco Polo takes is that they are emblematic of similar considerations and perspectives to be found in our ongoing dialogue about Tucker Carlson.

That’s good. That’s the intellectual balance I cite. It’s evidence of consistently cogent thought on one side that parallels and compliments; but draw distinctions between, the work on the other side. This is how progress is made and truth is found.

It’s how America used to work.”

[continued at title link above]

Linda

I’m lost. Who is the Marco Polo crew?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I think they’re a group of people like PM who are connected to Garrett Ziegler.

They are mentioned several times here:

https://politicalmoonshine.com/2021/11/10/the-problematic-posteriori-backseat-driving-of-president-trump/

Gingersmom2009

Garrett Ziegler is gratuitously arrogant to the point of being obnoxious. Something very off there.

para59r

Don’t know, see’s Wolf’s info below, but doesn’t feel a need to go where LW/MP/PM wants to take us. Too convoluted for most and is deep enough to be handled off script.

kalbokalbs

Any more I glance and watch. All of the palace intrigue, is beyond me. Not sure I care about this stuff, until it shakes out.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Exactly. Wasted friendly fire right now, IMHO.

Tonawanda

Exactly.

scott467

I wasn’t sure about the Marco Polo crew either, but I surmise from the context that the Marco Polo crew is the core group of people he regularly interacts with to confirm data and investigative findings.

Gingersmom2009

Garrett Ziegler/Marco Polo has been systematically publishing bits and pieces of the HB laptop on telegram. He seems to have completely ditched gab, since you can’t ban commentary and he cannot deal with ANYTHING contradictory. Jack Maxey (who will actually engage in a back/forth with commenters) was really in his face there for awhile – so he just took his ball and left.

Grandmaintexas

This is a balanced article. Thank you for sharing. I always forget to keep up with PM.

kalbokalbs

PM fell off with me, when Q stopped posting. PM was good at deciphering Q. Which I never was. Always liked PM “even keel” approach in splaining stuff.

scott467

Do you mean Praying Medic ‘PM’, or Political Moonshine ‘PM’?

kalbokalbs

Praying Medic intended.

Political Moonshine. Always read these. At least the ones you post. Which IS ALWAYS appreciated!

Now I gotta go back and likely reconnect dots. Correctly this time.

Grandmaintexas

I was talking about Political Moonshine. I don’t keep up with Praying Medic since I got kicked off Twitter. Briefly followed him on Telegram.

kalbokalbs

Yes. I should have tracked with Political Moonshine. Thanks.

Elizabeth Carter

Carl, I am keeping this one as a ready reference. You have given me a ready resource to some of my most favorite scriptures. I love this more than any other article you have done and I really enjoyed them all.
I enjoyed “God’s Glory” also.
Thank you so much.

New Zealand’s Tobacco Industry to Become Obsolete
https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/armstrongeconomics101/regulation/new-zealands-tobacco-industry-to-become-obsolete/

New Zealand plans to make the tobacco industry obsolete among future generations. Associate Health Minister Dr. Ayesha Verrall announced plans to pass the Smokefree Aotearoa 2025 Action Plan, with the goal of eliminating tobacco in the country in the next four years. As a result, cigarette companies will be prohibited from advertising in New Zealand. When the law goes into effect, teenagers under the age of 14 will never have the ability to purchase legal tobacco in their lifetimes. In addition, the majority of controversial flavored e-cigarettes aside from mint, menthol, and tobacco were banned in August as they are said to appeal to the youth.

The government is also taking measures to help older generations quit by gradually reducing nicotine content in cigarettes and removing filters. Currently, 8,000 retailers have the ability to sell tobacco products in the nation, but that will be reduced to only 500 locations. In four years, the only cigarettes available will contain a very low level of nicotine before they are phased out completely.

Verrall claims the move will save New Zealand $5 billion in healthcare costs. According to estimates, the average smoker in New Zealand spends $238 per week on cigarettes, amounting to $12,400 annually. The move will make New Zealand’s tobacco industry the most restricted in the world, behind Bhutan where cigarette products are prohibited entirely. However, tobacco sales compose around 40% of total convenience retail revenue in the nation. Opponents say that prohibition has never worked, and the ban will lead to an unregulated black market. Small dairies (i.e., grocery stores) are upset over the law as it will deplete much of their revenue, and the government has said it will not step in to bail out businesses affected by the mandate.

Why is the left declaring war on tobacco, when they are all for drug legalization? On the face of it, it makes no sense.

So let’s break it down:

  • Drug Legalization is all about the MONEY. They want to flood the market with mari.
  • Mari is far more potent than tobacco, so forget about Big Tobacco. They want to be Big Mari.
  • Tobacco is in direct competition to Big Mari. Crush tobacco and you force people to choose between getting it underground or switching to something legalized – ie, mari.
  • When a product is illegal, black market opportunities abound. Especially true for tobacco. Plenty of black market sales in high tax states. People who are double-dipping stand to make lots of money. (Politicians, anyone? Makes you wonder what Pelosi’s been smokin’, literally)
  • Mari is much stronger today than tobacco = much greater long term profit potential
  • Mari abused “recreationally” (exclude “medicinal”) will, WILL, result in significant lung damage all other factors being equal. Greater overall negative health impacts. = much greater profits for Big Medicine and Big Pharma to deal with ailments like their COPD racket.
  • Not to mention that mari is already popular in open drug scenes (euphemistically named “homeless camps” – it’s not “homeless” it’s “drug users”)
  • The “homeless” problem, besides drugs, is mental illness. Recreational Mari will definitely amplify mental illness. It feeds the beast of homeless encampments. Never let a crisis go to waste, Rahm said.
  • We’ve already talked about the “why” of why these “encampments” and criminality are tolerated. Public/private investment scams. An area is economically developed in a city. They need it “blockbusted” in the scam. The politician on the scam tolerates crime, and allows an open drug scene “homeless encampment”. The criminality starts driving down property values and blighting an area. When the values dip down low enough, the city can step in and use eminent domain to capture the blighted neighborhoods. Then the city has a problem on its hands, or it creates a problem that needs to be fixed by exacerbating it. Now comes the handoff. The politician brings in the developer to “re-develop” the blighted neighborhood. The city unloads the property at rock bottom prices, the difference goes to the taxpayers. Then the city pays the developer to “re-develop” taking out huge debt loans, which again are foisted on the taxpayers. The developer makes out like the bandit he is. Of course, the developer has to close the loop on the scam, so he makes sure the politicians get kickbacks. And then the cycle begins again, with another neighborhood. The Detroit model worked great for scamming cities and is being exported everywhere Democrats are in power.
  • Prohibition is the problem of the Baptists and the Bootleggers – perverse incentives to keep the system going. Flipping from Prohibition on Mari to Prohibition on Tobacco makes NO LOGICAL SENSE but it makes TON$$$ of unscrupulous business sense. ALL AT THE COST OF CIVIL SOCIETY, TAX PAYERS, AND PEOPLE’S LIVES!!!
Sadie Slays

I’ve been saying here for years that tobacco has hidden health benefits that are inconvenient to the NWO agenda. Increases testosterone, natural MAOI and other mental health benefits, possible anti-COVID properties. If it caused as many health problems as they claimed, then the depopulation tyrants would make it more available, not less. 

para59r

Agreed.

wheatietoo

Weren’t we told…early in the covid saga…that tobacco smokers were not getting infected with it?

I think we were.

But it was hushed up.
I figured that they didn’t want people to go out and start smoking cigarettes as a way to stave off the virus.

Sadie Slays

Early on, in spring 2020, there was a French study that found smokers were being hospitalized for COVID at much lower rates than non-smokers. It spooked the French government enough that they quickly restricted the sale of nicotine patches. Then it all got memory-holed, and I haven’t seen any updates regarding nicotine and COVID since Spring 2020.

That would be an argument for nicotine…not for cigarettes.

I’ve always wondered how much of the undeniable health problems from smoking came from repeated smoke inhalation, as opposed to the nicotine itself.

I’d say that on balance it’s not worth starting the habit just to avoid COVID, but I imagine a bunch of people trying to quit would find it an excuse not to.

TheseTruths

I’d say that on balance it’s not worth starting the habit just to avoid COVID, but I imagine a bunch of people trying to quit would find it an excuse not to.

This. There are so many health hazards related to smoking. There must other ways to reap the benefits of tobacco or nicotine.

para59r

Vaping works fine, zero health issues, but like tobacco its cost prohibitive and takes a degree of experimentation to find what fits best for you. Not something anyone needs to get into unless they are trying avoid tobacco’s other health risks.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

That in part is why I’m curious about patches. Are they problematic for health? If so how much in comparison to smoking?

As far as I know that’s just straight nicotine without any of the other crap that rides along in either tobacco smoke or tobacco as “chew.”

Sadie Slays

There is. Oral tobacco. The alleged cancer risks from it are based on a handful of studies in the 1980s and didn’t control for people who both smoked and used oral tobacco. Further studies have shown minimal difference in cancer rates oral tobacco users and non-users. The NYT of all places wrote a surprisingly balanced article about it:

One independent overview of the snus research, published in 2008 in The Lancet Oncology, a journal, summarized findings of three previous studies — two from Sweden and one from Norway — and also found little to no increased risk of oral cancer. The Lancet summary did find that use of snus contributed to a slightly elevated risk of pancreatic and esophageal cancer.

https://archive.md/ZbrAu

Here’s another study about it:

The most recent epidemiologic review of the cancer risks associated with smokeless tobacco use appeared in 1986, when 10 studies were available. This review describes 21 published studies, 20 of which are of the case-control type. We characterize each study according to the specific anatomic sites and according to the type of smokeless tobacco products for which it provides relative risks of cancer. The use of moist snuff and chewing tobacco imposes minimal risks for cancers of the oral cavity and other upper respiratory sites, with relative risks ranging from 0.6 to 1.7. The use of dry snuff imposes higher risks, ranging from 4 to 13, and the risks from smokeless tobacco, unspecified as to type, are intermediate, from 1.5 to 2.8. The strengths and limitations of the studies and implications for future research are discussed.

https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/12075196/

Sadie Slays

That would be an argument for nicotine…not for cigarettes.

It’s an argument for tobacco overall. There’s more to the plant than just nicotine. The natural MAOI in tobacco, for example, doesn’t come from nicotine. That’s why nicotine patches and vaping aren’t 100% substitutes for the plant material.

But I otherwise agree. Smoke in the lungs is bad, and the flame retardants that the government mandates in cigarettes is probably causing more harm than the tobacco itself.

para59r

Okay, had to look up Mari and sees it’s marijuana. Yes, certainly right.
Everything else likely right too, makes zero sense but it does realign monies to their pocket books. Meanwhile Pelosi is about to slap a huge tax on all tobacco here as well, includes vape products. Wish they’d leave us all alone.

Julian Assange Has Stroke In British Prison Day After Court OK’s Extradition To United States

Julian Assange had a stroke in Belmarsh Prison in the United Kingdom, and his fiancée, Stella Moris, suggested it was triggered by the stress generated by his ongoing time in jail.

Assange, the 50-year-old WikiLeaks founder, is being held at the maximum-security jail in London. Yesterday, the High Court ruled that Assange can be extradited to the United States to be tried for espionage.

This ruling had overturned a previous ruling by a lower court, saying Assange could not be extradited to the United States due to his mental health.

WikiLeaks said that doctors confirmed Assange’s stroke this morning following the court’s ruling.

The mini-stroke has left Assange with a drooping right eyelid, memory problems, and signs of neurological damage. A ‘transient ischaemic attack’ – “mini stroke” caused by a temporary disruption in the blood supply to part of the brain – can be a warning sign of a full stroke. Assange has since had an MRI scan and is now taking anti-stroke medication.

Moris told TheDailyMail, “Julian is struggling and I fear this mini-stroke could be the precursor to a more major attack.”…MORE In Link.

LInked story says stroke happened in October. So what’s the truth (second stroke?) and does it matter if this is the first most or all people have learned about it in conjunction with news of his extradition? 11 years held and lots of political shenanigans in this case. Up/Down/Sideways guys a pawn at this point and Hillary still wants to drone him.

RAC

Granted he’s been under immense stress for years, but it’s still suspicious, he has high powered enemies.
Also if he’s allowed access to outside news I think he’d have enough wisdom to refuse the jab, although there’s no mention whether he’d taken the clot shot.

singingsoul1

By the time he is extradited he will not know who he is. Interesting send him to US for what? Anything he knows has been harvested from him.

Cuppa Covfefe

Hope he didn’t get a clot shot or a booster…

scott467

Why does he put himself through it?

If he has dirt on people in high places, why not release it, and get the monkey off his back?

Once the information is out, there’s no reason to try to keep him silenced anymore, and besides, the people who have been after him will have a lot bigger things to worry about if he releases what he knows and can prove.

Minority Rules: Scientists Discover Tipping Point for the Spread of Ideas

https://news.rpi.edu/luwakkey/2902

“Scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society. The scientists, who are members of the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) at Rensselaer, used computational and analytical methods to discover the tipping point where a minority belief becomes the majority opinion. The finding has implications for the study and influence of societal interactions ranging from the spread of innovations to the movement of political ideals.”

All I need to know is the political ideology of the scientismists.

If they are Leftists, or establishment order-takers, then it’s propaganda and not worth even reading.

Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Ahmed El-Tayyeb Plans Major Chrislam Update With Vatican Ahead Of 2022 Opening Of Abrahamic Family House
.

The Document of Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, also known as Chrislam, was signed in February 2019 by Pope Francis and El-Tayyeb in Abu Dhabi with the aim of reinforcing the principle of coexistence among religions. The document is the foundation for the planned construction of the Interfaith Abrahamic Family House that is scheduled to open next year in Abu Dhabi, comprising a church, a mosque and a synagogue. During Saturday’s meeting, El-Tayyeb said the fraternity document has proposed solutions to the problems facing the world today from a religious standpoint, according to a statement by Al-Azhar. Al-Azhar’s relations with the Vatican remain an effective model for spreading tolerance and peace and fighting extremism, hate, wars and disputes, El-Tayyeb said.

***Follow Us On TELEGRAM***

“I wear glasses. So when we breathe on, you know the lenses and fogged them up. The moisture we’re getting on there, that’s the aerosol. Scientific studies before this pandemic have shown that low-cost masks. So we’re talking about surgical masks and the cough masks we’re wearing. These low-cost masks have pore sizes that range between 80 and 500 microns in size. So huge range, right? The diameter of the virus is one micron. The largest possible small droplets that comprise a typical aerosol and two viral particles is 62 microns in diameter. So I put that in perspective. The smallest pore size is 80. So that means the largest droplet coated with the virus can pass right through now. So let me see if I can show you this. We’ve been told to use up to three masks, so I’ve got one. And I shouldn’t even be able to get all these on because one thing is interesting, actually, my right ear kinda now is permanently deformed a little bit. It sticks out from my head more than the other one. Because of all the mask-wearing, but so let me put on here’s two masks. Here’s three. I’ll put on a fourth one. I don’t know if we’ll get the fifth one on. Okay, five masks. They’re three-ply surgical masks, so 15 layers and seal it around the mouth. If this is true and aerosols come through then, this should fog up. We’ll see. Can you see the fog? Now watch this. I made a cross. Can you see my eyes through that cross? So there’s so much moisture there that you can see. Look at that cross pattern. There’s so much moisture there. So I’m not gonna say anymore, right? All I’m saying I’m just pointing to the science. So this is crazy.” – Dr. Byram Bridle

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.

Just remember, boys n girls — all of the ‘benefits’ given to illegal aliens by the FJB administration can be (and should be) revoked by the next Congress. Of course, pResident * will veto such a bill but that doesn’t mean it should not be passed.

Vetoes can be overridden if there are enough votes.

On the way home from the downtown Mass gig, I stopped in a grocery store of one of the local chains, and at long last…NO MASK REQUIRED!

Yea.

Although, they are strongly recommended. I was one of three people without one in the place.

TheseTruths

I hope the tide is turning. Their removing the mandate while Omicron is “raging” is a good sign. I never wear masks in stores that recommend them.

scott467

If you don’t have a mask with you, you remove the possibility of compliance.

As I have learned, that doesn’t prevent some employee from reaching their filthy Covid-covered hand into a mask box, taking one out, and offering it to you.

That’s when you say “Are you serious? You’re touching BOTH sides of the mask with your bare hands, holding it between your thumb and fingers, and now you want me to put that up to my face, and breathe in?

Does that make sense to you?

Have you actually thought about any of this, what you’re doing?”

The last person I said that to finally broke.

Her shoulders slumped, she looked down in dejection, and said “I know, it’s just our policy”.

I win again 😁

You know it is not the employee you need make feel bad he/she has nothing to do with it. Maybe ask for the manager?

TheseTruths

The employee probably has nothing to do with it, and I agree about telling the manager, but the more employees and “little people” who hear from the public, the better. They will sometimes communicate with management that the customers are not happy. And it spreads the message of sanity to people we would not normally come in contact with. 😊

singingsoul1

You got a point 🙂

ForGodandCountry

Better stated:

It’s time for the employees to stand up to the managers.

No employees = no managers = no business

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The manager might actually “solve” the problem in some way that makes the employee even more miserable…like requiring them to wear gloves to hand out masks.

singingsoul1

Never thought about that.
Last Monday I was in Cosco and yes wore gloves. I do not know if people washed their hands ?

para59r

So true. That’s why the manager should get a separate speech geared to his weakness’s in bowing down to these ridiculous dictates . When you leave every one is happily chastised.  😎

The first go-round here, I felt sorry for the employees, I really did. Now I don’t. Every business in my area has help-wanted signs, reduced hours, and closures because of lack of help. If the employees got together and stood up for themselves, they wouldn’t have to wear a mask. THEY are more important to the business than following a stupid mandate. If they choose compliance, that’s on them now.

singingsoul1

Good point

scott467

“You know it is not the employee you need make feel bad he/she has nothing to do with it.”

______________

But the employee is tip of the spear, the contact point between policy and the public. 😁

How is their excuse any different than “I was just following orders?”

.

“Maybe ask for the manager?”

_____________

Like everywhere else I go, whoever confronts me is the person I have to contend with. If the manager happens to be around and interjects him or herself, then I’ll deal with the manager.

But there’s no point in asking for the manager, because the manager isn’t going to change store policy for me, even if I pin him down and make him cry uncle. 🤣

I don’t expect their policy to change, I just expect them to make an exception to their policy, or I’ll go somewhere else. Very simple.

With few exceptions (doctors, dentist, etc.), we can usually go somewhere else without too much difficulty, somewhere that wants our business, if the place of business we’re in won’t make an exception.

Normally I’m polite and accommodating, but these aren’t normal times. It’s a war, and it’s personal, every day.

I don’t know how else to deal with it, and if I hadn’t made refusal to comply a blanket approach from the beginning, then I would have had to pick and choose when to comply and when not to. And knowing human nature, I would have ended up choosing whatever was most convenient, which means I would be choosing compliance all the time.

And I just can’t do it.

Going along with something you know is wrong feels dirty. It’s a matter of conscience. You know it when something violates your conscience, and no one has a right to coerce anyone to violate their conscience.

They don’t think twice about putting us (their customers) in such an uncomfortable position.

So for as long as this goes on, I won’t think twice about returning the favor, and we’ll see who blinks first.

I started out winning, and I’m only getting better at it 👍 😁

singingsoul1

Good on you 🙂 🙂

Most places around here have a serve yourself plastic box at the door.

I’m sure the last hand that went in the box for a useless mask was nice and clean… I’m sure the entire serve-yourself box is sterile and germ-free… because they care… 🤣 😂 🤣

3 OBSERVATIONS FOR THE 3rd ADVENT SUNDAY

…..all linked…

.

.

.

1) Funny how the Wood/Lynn controversy broke out JUUUUUST before the Ghilaine Maxwell trial took place. Got MAGA folk arguing with one another, sucking them into classic “I’m right/you’re wrong” debate.

Very distracting and time consuming.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.
2) In fact, I’ve seen exponentially more about that controversy here in these pages than anything about the Maxwell trial (or what came out of it).

There were 10x more postings about that than anything related to Maxwell.

This is a FACT.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

.

3) Interesting to note, too, who has been pushing that controversy (both here at Qtree as well as on the web) vs. anything about the Maxwell trial.

.

.
BONUS OBSERVATION IN ANTICIPATION OF THE 4TH ADVENT SUNDAY:

Postings can’t be erased here at QTree, so anyone can easily look back and see who has been pushing what, and when…

…which is something Wolf might want to do. In fact, he should. After all, we know the enemy actually pays and employs people to be controlled opposition.

Q: Who posted extensively about the Wood/Flynn controversy, but said very little (if anything) about the Maxwell trial?

Matthew 7:15-16

and

Matthew 10:16-17

Also….

Ephesians 5:11

TheseTruths

I don’t see any significance to the fact that the Lin Wood controversy is getting more attention than the Maxwell trial. There are no cameras in the trial. We all know most of what went on with her and Epstein, at least the parts that the public is allowed to see. If you want to bring something Maxwell-related to our attention, please do.

The Lin Wood controversy is a different matter. It started with a Rittenhouse lie about Wood, then Wood’s friends — whom we believe to be patriots — not only not standing up for Wood, but not even talking with him about the fact that they publicly took Rittenhouse’s side and slandered Wood when he asked them to meet with him. Something is wrong, and I don’t believe it’s merely someone stirring the pot with the goal of dividing patriots.

Postings can’t be erased here at QTree, so anyone can easily look back and see who has been pushing what, and when…

…which is something Wolf might want to do. In fact, he should.

Please explain, in plain terms, who you’re referring to and what you’re insinuating.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I’d rather he didn’t. I know exactly what he’s insinuating, it’s largely true, and I’m choosing to do nothing, because even FG&C posting what he did is INFLAMING THE STUPID of that stupid fight.

TheseTruths

posting what he did is INFLAMING THE STUPID

That’s for sure.

ForGodandCountry

Not, it’s not “for sure”, as I pointed out.

TheseTruths

I stated my opinion, and I stand by it.

ForGodandCountry

Of course I’m not going to, otherwise I would have.

As long as you know, I’m good. Other interested parties can now go and look for themselves to see who we are talking about. Most won’t due to laziness, but that’s fine. You are the one who matters.

I’ll also say…in my defense….the Wood/Flynn debate itself has nothing whatsoever to do with the topic of my post, it is merely incidental to it, so my post should not inflame anything having to do with that debate.

I have a different take on it. I have kept up with the whole situation on both sides.

I was wrong to think that we could disagree and keep moving.

Very sad.

TheseTruths

You weren’t wrong. We can disagree and keep moving. Stand your ground….please. I can’t speak for Wolf, but my understanding is that, since this is his site, then unless he addresses something with you, your input is welcome.

TheseTruths

You don’t appear to have a very high opinion of the people here. It’s a wonder you read and post. You chewed us out for not posting enough Wictor. Then we were wrong for not regularly posting what Sidney Powell says. Now it’s the Maxwell trial. And we’re lazy to boot. The only controversy I see being stirred up comes from your direction.

Tonawanda

Sometimes we are our better selves, and sometimes we are not.

Sometimes there are factors influencing us not to be our better selves, and they go away. And then we are our better selves again.

Happens to everyone.

God bless us, everyone.

Deplorable Patriot

Some of us won’t because it’s a waste of valuable time.

However, I do agree that the bread and circus aspect to it is manufactured. One of the telegram accounts I follow has identified a pattern that begins, actually, with Stew Peters.

Ghislaine Maxwell…at this point, I am convinced that it’s a script being fed to us, and none of the really good stuff is in it.

Grandmaintexas

Wolf, please find someone else to do Fridays. Please remove me as an author.

God bless and take care everyone.

Grandma, I don’t think this is about you. I think I know who it is about, and it is a “stupid fight,” as Wolf says. But this is why I asked FG&C to state exactly what and whom he is talking about. People begin to wonder, more division is sown, and there are hard feelings.

I hope you will reconsider. Your input and authorship are very important and much appreciated. This whole thing is so uncalled for. I could say a lot more but will refrain.

I just figured he was talking about me again, because he enjoys my attention so much 🤣😂🤣

I have not the faintest idea who he is talking about.

A good night’s sleep will clarify things.

Please, no, Grandmaintexas. It is a tempest in a teapot.

Please do not let others get under your skin it is not worth it. It is not about you they are projecting. Never take on things that are not yours to take.
I love your segment on Fridays and look forward to it. Each of you Authors bring your own personality and experience.

I’m playing catch-up reading around here & am very sad to see this as a possible outcome of this ongoing “controversy”. Your Friday Wolf’s Pub posts are consistently Wonderful!!!

Different strokes for different folks is a Good Thing, I believe. We all potentially have valuable insights to contribute to the Q-Tree, w/ yours being right up there, imo (& I’m Not Catholic).

It seems (to me) that FG&C might be referring to someone w/ a handle ending in “mom” who sometimes comes across similarly to MagaMom in approach, at least to me…

I’ve always been thankful for Wolf’s graciousness in allowing me, a Q “agnostic”, to have such access to the Q-Tree. He seems to be able to lead the Wolf Pack in the right direction & is not overly bothered by some of the controversies that arise in the ranks.

Turn up the heat of the refiner’s fire so we can become a more purified & valuable gold as we all work on the iron sharpens iron aspects of forging that more perfect union!!!

God Bless YOU Grandma & guide you in His paths (which I sincerely hope will continue with your ongoing authorship of Wolf’s Pub & other gems).

What is “largely true”? That certain posters are being deliberately divisive? They have ulterior motives?

RAC

Wolf Moon
FG&C making nameless insinuations like that IS THE WAY OF A SPLITTER.
FG&C is doing that which he paints another of doing.
Cowardly hiding behind a nameless insinuation allows FG&C to then deny the damage he has caused.
Way back FG&C abused every one on here and you, and after a time came back.
Your site, your decisions, but IMO you have handled this badly resulting in the loss of Grandmaintexas.
I have better things to do with my time, than scroll past a jumped up taxi driver.

He occasionally goes on a crusade to get someone or other kicked off.

He’s tried it on me.

The best way to give him the finger is to stay.

scott467

“The best way to give him the finger is to stay.”

Or laugh at him, since the best he can do is play the ‘straight man’ in a comedy routine.

Once you understand that he’s one dimensional, that he only has one move (i.e., to attack people personally), it’s easy to put a rake in front of him and then watch him step on it repeatedly 👍😂

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Oh, I do plenty of that, too.
