Dear KAG: 20220105 Open Thread

And the real DePat is not even warming up or singing or anything. I mean, my little bred down wolf Ying likes to sing along when I’m in the Queen of the Night range. I do have a video…. Somewhere.

Okay, on to some serious stuff.

I had a writing instructor in college who told us that once you see a topic come up three times it was a trend, and go ahead and write about it because someone was bound to buy a story from a freelancer. (This was before the Internet really took off. It was a novelty then.)

Well…guess what.

So, y’all know how China pretty much bought up a whole lot of Africa to exploit the place for minerals and they’re trying to do the same with Afghanistan?

Well, a little closer to home, they’re up to the same thing, and I’m not talking about just the Panama Canal.

Nope.

MonkeyWerx, actually, noticed it last week in the Caribbean, and followed up Monday night with this. (I have it cued to where he starts talking about just the Caribbean.)

And then General Flynn highlighted this article from the UK Daily Mail on his Telegram channel:

China’s plot to ‘take over’ Latin America: Beijing inks new deal to share nuclear tech, build 5G networks, develop space programmes, and pump cheap loans into America’s back yard in ‘growing threat’ to US

  • China has put pen to paper on a new deal to deepen ties with countries in Latin America and the Caribbean 
  • New deal will see Beijing share nuclear technology, build 5G and communications networks, help develop space programmes and pump cheap infrastructure loans into the region in attempt to buy influence 
  • Comes off the back of years of Chinese investment and trade in the region, which has diminished US power 
  • Beijing plans to ‘take over’ America’s back yard and is a ‘growing threat’ to the US, analysts have warned

China has inked a new deal with leaders in Latin America and the Caribbean to deepen ties across almost all areas of society in what one analyst likened to a plot to ‘take over’ the region.

As part of the deal, Beijing has committed to supplying the region with ‘civilian’ nuclear technology, helping to develop ‘peaceful’ space programmes, building 5G networks of the kind Washington warns will be used to spy on people, and to pumping in cheap loans and financing for ‘elaborate development plans.’

China has even pledged to build schools and fund classes teaching Chinese language and ‘culture’, though such institutions have been criticised elsewhere for pushing state propaganda and limiting academic freedom.

It comes off the back of decades of Chinese investment and development in Latin America and the Caribbean which has seen hundreds of billions of dollars poured into the region to build critical infrastructure such as ports, roads, and power plants in what many believe is an attempt to buy power and influence in America’s back yard. 

‘There are absolutely ambitions for China to become the dominant influence in Latin America,’ Mateo Haydar, a researcher at the Heritage Foundation said off the back of the latest deal. 

https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2021/10/19/16/49372529-10107835-image-a-23_1634657917298.jpg

(The image won’t copy, but is worth a click. Seriously.)

‘The challenge is comprehensive, and there’s absolutely a security and military interest there. … That threat is growing, and it’s a different kind of threat than what we saw with the Soviets,’ he told the Washington Examiner.

Professor Evan Ellis, of the U.S. Army War College, added: ‘The Chinese don’t say, “We want to take over Latin America,” but they clearly set out a multidimensional engagement strategy, which, if successful, would significantly expand their leverage and produce enormous intelligence concerns for the United States.’

The deal, officially the ‘Joint Action Plan for Cooperation in Key Areas’, was signed last month between China and CELAC, an alliance of Latin American and Caribbean States that encompasses almost all the countries in the region including major players such as Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Venezuela, Uruguay and Chile.

While light on specifics, it sets out a broad roadmap for relations between China and countries in the region up to 2024 – committing them to deepening ties between governments, banks, companies and educational institutions.

Most of the commitments appear routine – such as pledges to preserve the environment, develop green tech, and promote equality and sustainability – but some will certainly give minds in the Pentagon pause for thought.

The first is a commitment to exchange nuclear technology and promote ‘relevant practical projects’ including the training of nuclear scientists to ‘bring into play advantages offered by nuclear technology and nuclear energy.’

The deal specifies that this will be ‘peaceful’ and elsewhere commits the parties to pursuing ‘nuclear disarmament’, but will almost certainly cause concern because the technology used to enrich nuclear fuel can be repurposed to make weapons-grade material for use in bombs.

In the parlance of the Church Lady, isn’t that special.

Or in the immortal words of my sainted grandmother who invented the spiritual happy hour when she sat down in the afternoon to say the Rosary with a gin and tonic… “Oh, $#!+.”

While we have been distracted with the pandemic that isn’t, China has been actively violating the Monroe Doctrine, not that we follow that anymore.

As part of the agreement, the two sides commit to cooperation in the ‘construction of ground infrastructure’ to support space programmes, raising the possibility that such technology could soon be launched, controlled or monitored from America’s doorstep.

And that is not the only area where Chinese and South American technology is likely to combine. The deal also pledges greater cooperation on ‘digital infrastructure, telecommunications equipment, [and] 5G.’

The US has been locked in a proxy-war with China for years over the roll-out of 5G technology, ever since it emerged that Beijing was pulling ahead in the race to build the world’s new information networks.

Mike Pompeo, former US secretary of state, pushed hard in the later years of the Trump administration to persuade western nations and US allies to ditch the technology, warning it would be used to spy on users.

South American countries have been at the epicentre of the battle, trying to appease both Beijing and DC. Jair Bolsonaro, Brazilian president and close ally of Trump, at first pledged to exclude Huawei – one of China’s biggest technology firms – from running part of its network, only to reverse that stance when Trump left office.

According to the text of the deal, it is a fight that look set to continue for some time longer.

China and Latin American states have also agreed to cooperate directly between their militaries, ostensibly for the purpose of fighting terrorism and taking down organised criminal networks.

The two sides said they will ‘share knowledge, policies, technologies and experiences’ in tackling the threats, suggesting some level of cooperation and intelligence sharing between their militaries and police forces.

Other pledges appear to be a continuation of infrastructure projects already underway in region, many of built as part of China’s trillion-dollar Belt and Road initiative.

These include the deepening of ties in trade and financial markets, including investment and loans for ‘elaborate development plans’, and helping with the ‘transition towards green energy’ by building new power plants.

China has also pledged to help with oil, gas a mining exploration, though claims green projects will be given priority over fossil fuels.

R-i-i-i-ght.

I wish I had better and more entertaining news to impart, but guess what…with only two mentions, we have a trend.

MARK 6:45-52

45Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Beth-sa’ida, while he dismissed the crowd. 46And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. 47And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. 48And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them, 49but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out; 50for they all saw him, and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; have no fear.” 51And he got into the boat with them and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded, 52for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened.

Do not be afraid to take a chance on peace, to teach peace, to live peace. Peace will be the last word of history” – St. Pope John Paul II

Holiness is this profound contact with God, becoming a friend of God: it is letting the Other work, the Only One who can really make the world both good and happy. — Benedict XVI

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

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another.

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

JP, it seems, is off coming up with new, brilliant satire ideas, and this blast from the past popped into my feed from when comedy was actually funny. I honestly don’t remember this one from my childhood.

And…you want a musical duel? As an adult with 30+ years Classical music experience – NOT Country by any means – this was impressive…and I didn’t see it until a couple years ago. The finger work and improv is just so cool.

cthulhu

I’d bet that you and Ying doing a duet would be quite impressive. Which one of you has the greater range? Being that Ying’s hearing is probably a couple of octaves further than yours, is it possible that there are peculiar harmonics involved?

cthulhu

The dueling banjos segment was very well done, but reminded me especially of actually going to Nashville, and The Ryman, and discovering how much time I’d spent there — never knowing.

cthulhu

So, here’s a nice video of Alan Jackson singing a great hymn “How Great Thou Art” at The Ryman Auditorium [“The Mother Church of Country Music”]. Feel free to listen to the song and appreciate the performance, but I’m going to be coming back to the staging.

Let’s start out with the basics — the building was built to hold revivals — like tent revivals, but warmer and dryer. The back of the stage runs out to an alley beside the building. The stage faces out across the audience to a side street. Singing from the stage to the audience, the front of the building is to your left.

There are a number of windows, mostly using colored glass, behind the audience. The top ones are multi-segmented pseudo-Gothic (pointed) in reference to their religious function. In back of the stage, there are decorations that echo this motif.

The stage is spread out and sparse, allowing each performer an optimal space in which to perform. The individual miking is tight and intimate, but everything is projected into the Ryman proper — which has long been held to have some of the best natural acoustics of any performance space. Interestingly, this was held to be true before there was a stage, before there was a balcony, and after the balcony was installed. This may have something to do with the audience having no “seats” — the audience space is filled with heavy wooden church pews.

Incidentally, there’s another thing about the balcony. When the Civil War broke out, the North effectively seized Tennessee and held it as occupied territory throughout the conflict. It became the “Volunteer State” because hanging out in an occupied territory is a drag and many of its people volunteered to be elsewhere. At the end of hostilities, most of these people wanted to get back to building a future in Tennessee, despite having been on different sides of the conflict. So when a group wanted to have a big to-do at the Ryman, and fund the balcony that had been planned along with the original building but laid aside due to lack of funds, it was welcomed. And that’s why at 2:03, you can see a hanging commemoration over the performer’s B-3 that says “Confederate Gallery”. It’s somewhat symbolic that the Union Hall plus the Confederate Gallery sound better going forward TOGETHER.

So much of what I grew up with used imagery and settings from the Ryman — and from the Grand Ol’ Opry on the same stage (essentially everything in “Hee-Haw”) — and I just thought it was this-and-that from somewhere-or-the-other. And then, I walked in, and was amazed by how familiar this space was….when I had never before set foot in Nashville.

cthulhu

Mind you, you can have the same song in the same venue, and…..

Empty pews, soulless delivery, airbrushed history.

cthulhu

Compared to…..

Recorded from the audience, with the audience, revival-mode ENGAGED.

cthulhu

But how can you deny the influence of The Ryman on this performance?

litenmaus

She was an amazing singer. Gone too soon.

Gingersmom2009

Oh my. Carrie Underwood has had so much work done, she looks like Ciara. Or maybe trying for Salma Hayek? I do know she had an injury, but what is with all these women and the overdone lips?

Have to weigh in on the music. It’s obviously a congregational hymn, meant to be lead by a strong organist or an organist and a choir. It isn’t a “song”. The rhythmic formula and tune don’t lend themselves to personal interpretation. (Think of Jerusalem or Thaxted (I Vow to Thee, My Country) in the UK. Same thing.) So the desperate effort to “interpret” just comes off contrived and empty.

Wolfie, see my comment on B12

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I’ll go look! Thanks!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Thanks – very helpful. It seems to me that B12 has a huge impact on immunity, and in many cases people are fighting the immune improvement battle on other fronts, not realizing that B12 is where they’re suffering the greatest losses.

Gail Combs

yeah, the stuff looks very very useful and not just for allergies.

Maybe you could explore it a bit more. I do not have the biology background to get that far into the weeds.

singingsoul1

You reminded me that I have B12 so I took some this morning. The B12 does dissolve. I also took saline solution up my nose . Ha ha avoided stuff like that it does clear the nose. I bought it all ready to go.

Barb Meier

For the last few years, if I get a runny nose, I make my own warm salt water and then dip each finger into the salt water and stick my finger up my nose. 5 fingers for each nostril. Nope, I don’t ‘double dip.’ I also gargle with a cup of warm salt water. It stops the runny nose right off and I like how simple it is. It works for me. 🙂

singingsoul1

I heard a doctor Mandell explain how salt helps with mucus specially the chest. I hope you use filtered water and has been boiled? Maybe I am to cautious?

Gail Combs

No not cautious. I used to change the De-Ionized water filters at the plant I worked in. THERE IS NO WAY I WILL DRINK CITY WATER!!!

If it is not going down the throat to the stomach, use DISTILLED WATER. At less than a dollar a gallon it is well worth it.

Not cautious is right. Dr. Mercola and the nebulizer protocol (saline/H2O2/Lugol’s) stresses no tap water when making your saline.

singingsoul1

Yes it is. My husband uses if for the humidifier.

Gail Combs

Wolfie,

You asked about B12. Yes I take it for allergy attacks. AND for DNA synthesis.

Vitamin B-12 Battles Allergies Dr. Newton’s Naturals

….Several other studies have not only made the connection between B-12 and stress, but have suggested that vitamin B12 could actually reduce allergy symptoms. For example, in a recent clinical study, a group of seasonal allergy sufferers spent up to six weeks taking massive amounts of B12 through sublingual delivery (under the tongue).

Many of the worst symptoms – sneezing, congestion and itchy, runny noses – were half as severe in the vitamin B12 group as in the placebo group. Researchers stated,“The effects were comparable to Claritin. Vitamin B12 is also much safer.” Better still, people who were taking B12 didn’t have the tired, draggy feeling so common with antihistamine allergy medications. Another study found vitamin B12 taken at an increased dose may help protect asthma sufferers from reacting to food with sulfites.

The secret to vitamin B12’s allergy fighting success lies in its ability to “reset” the immune system….

From NIH: Vitamin B12 Fact Sheet for Health Professionals

…Vitamin B12 is required for the development, myelination, and function of the central nervous system; healthy red blood cell formation; and DNA synthesis [1,4,5]. Vitamin B12 functions as a cofactor for two enzymes, methionine synthase and L-methylmalonyl-CoA mutase [1-3,5]. Methionine synthase catalyzes the conversion of homocysteine to the essential amino acid methionine [1,2]. Methionine is required for the formation of S-adenosylmethionine, a universal methyl donor for almost 100 different substrates, including DNA, RNA, proteins, and lipids [3,5]. L-methylmalonyl-CoA mutase converts L-methylmalonyl-CoA to succinyl-CoA in the metabolism of propionate, a short-chain fatty acid [2]…..

Funny how all of the first Duck-Duck-Go articles are ALL about ALLERGIES TO vitamin B12….

Anti-nociceptive and Anti-inflammatory Effects of Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) Against Acute and Chronic Pain and Inflammation in Mice

….Maximum anti-inflammatory effect (37.5%) was obtained at dose of 1 mg/kg. In chronic inflammation, Vit B12 significantly decreased granuloma formation in mice. In conclusion our work presents some experimental evidence supporting the administration of cyanocobalamin in controlling acute and chronic neuropathic pain….

Vitamin B12 Benefits That You’re Probably Missing….
Harvard Health: Vitamin B12 deficiency can be sneaky, harmful

….Consider this: Over the course of two months, a 62-year-old man developed numbness and a “pins and needles” sensation in his hands, had trouble walking, experienced severe joint pain, began turning yellow, and became progressively short of breath. The cause was lack of vitamin B12 in his bloodstream, according to a case report from Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital published in The New England Journal of Medicine. It could have been worse—a severe vitamin B12 deficiency can lead to deep depression, paranoia and delusions, memory loss, incontinence, loss of taste and smell, and more….

Plants don’t make vitamin B12. The only foods that deliver it are meat, eggs, poultry, dairy products, and other foods from animals….

Conditions that interfere with nutrient absorption, such celiac or Crohn’s disease, can cause B12trouble. So can the use of commonly prescribed heartburn drugs, which reduce acid production in the stomach (acid is needed to absorb vitamin B12). The condition is more likely to occur in older people due to the cutback in stomach acid production that often occurs with aging. [That is why under the tongue]

Metabolic vitamin B12 deficiency: a missed opportunity to prevent dementia and stroke

Abstract

…..Metabolic B12 deficiency is common, being present in 10%-40% of the population; is frequently missed; is easily treated; and contributes importantly to cognitive decline and stroke in older people. Measuring serum B12 alone is not sufficient for diagnosis; it is necessary to measure holotranscobalamin or functional markers of B12 adequacy such as methylmalonic acid or plasma total homocysteine. B-vitamin therapy with cyanocobalamin reduces the risk of stroke in patients with normal renal function but is harmful (perhaps because of thiocyanate accumulation from cyanide in cyanocobalamin) in patients with renal impairment. Methylcobalamin may be preferable in renal impairment. B12 therapy slowed gray matter atrophy and cognitive decline in the Homocysteine and B Vitamins in Cognitive Impairment Trial. Undiagnosed metabolic B12 deficiency may be an important missed opportunity for prevention of dementia and stroke; in patients with metabolic B12 deficiency, it would be prudent to offer inexpensive and nontoxic supplements of oral B12, preferably methylcobalamin or hydroxycobalamin. Future research is needed to distinguish the effects of thiocyanate from cyanocobalamin on hydrogen sulfide, and effects of treatment with methylcobalamin on cognitive function and stroke, particularly in patients with renal failure.

Vitamin B12 is not well absorbed by older folks esp if they are taking something like Tagamet® (Cimetidine) for heartburn or acid reflux (gastroesophageal reflux disease.) Therefore the sublingual (under the tongue) works the best.

Linda

Your body will expel what you don’t need.

Gail Combs

Vitamin B12 toxicity is essentially a condition that develops when a person takes too much vitamin B12 and begins to develop side effects, such as swelling or diarrhea, as a result. A person would likely have to take massive doses of vitamin B12 in order for it to cause toxicity, as the vitamin is generally very well tolerated. To avoid developing this condition, a person may consult his doctor or a nutrition expert to learn the safe levels of vitamin B12 supplementation…

Injected B12 seems to be the major problem.

Somewhere, I have a CD of bagpipe + banjo.

It works better than you’d expect.

Sadie Slays

A prominent cog in the local Democrat machine recently died in his 50s of “blood clots related to COVID.” He was on a ventilator shortly before dying. I think we can all make an accurate estimate of what happened here. The only reason I’m mentioning this is to point out that even being a Useful Idiot + prominent Democrat won’t save you from the Enemy’s genocidal agenda. He still got the same (presumed) injections + Remdesivir + ventilator murder just like the rest of the tax cattle. 

I see the question come up often in truth communities: “Why would they kill the obedient sheep lining up for injections?” Well, here’s your answer and proof. They don’t care who they kill, including their Useful Idiot puppets. The goal is to seize power and install a vaccine passport > social credit control system. They are willing and prepared to accept as many sacrifices as it takes to achieve their goal.

Prepare accordingly.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Amen.

Stalin knew that Beria was killing off many of his loyal supporters, innocent of the crimes of which they were accused.

The innocent individual does not matter in communism.

Loyalty alone does not matter in communism.

Betrayal of the stated goal does not matter in communism.

The MONSTERS in Washington will do as they please, because their own hypocrisy DOES NOT MATTER to them.

Cartel mindset. CRIMINAL mindset.

Gail Combs

You forgot:

THE PRIMARY GOAL IS TO LOWER THE POPULATION TO 1/2 MILLION and most of those will be INTELLIGENT BUT OBEDIENT CHINESE…

Think the Human Genome Project and the Chinese CRISPR babies.

The USA will be re-filled with DUMB (Afghans IQ averages 85 as does Africans) Third worlder slave labor who NEVER had a high tech western civilization.

These people will be the peasants who grow the food for the technocrats (Chinese) and Mr Global.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I didn’t forget – I simply didn’t mention it!

I often don’t mention “big picture” causes and factors for a very specific reason. Such things are DISTRACTING TO TACTICS and DECREASING TO THE WILL TO FIGHT. Beyond that they tend to be SELF-DISCREDITING.

It’s all about SCALE – a very important factor in fighting.

You are welcome to add these “big picture” things that I very well understand, but please be careful not to imply that I “forgot” or am “unaware”.

I am extremely aware, and am leaving them out of the picture for a reason.

People may want to ask themselves – what are my reasons?

Those reasons are TACTICAL.

Gail Combs

Will do Wolfie. I am more the connect the dots big picture type.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

It’s OK! Not a problem. I’m more of a ground fighter!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Why concern yourself with Stalingrad when you’re fighting Nazis near Leningrad?

Some people have that attitude and others really are happier knowing the big picture. Just so long as they don’t lose sight of the parts they deal with directly, that’s OK (as long as OPSEC isn’t violated).

Gail Combs

Actually the big picture tells me we are… if not wining… at least doing a LOT better than Mr Global expected us to do.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

To each their own!

Lavrentiy Beria was the mastermind behind the murder of the Katyn Forest massacre, among many other mass-killing incidents. Beria believed he was such a good and loyal lieutenant to Stalin that he (Beria) would take over after Stalin’s death.
However, Khrushchev was already positioned to take over and had Beria (with Beria’s supporters) arrested and tried for treason. Of course, they were all convicted. Beria was executed by a shot to his forehead.
The ONLY THING that Communists respect is THE PERSON WHO WIELDS THE MOST POWER AND CONTROL OVER THE MOST PEOPLE.
This rapid increase of Chinese Communist control-via-agreement WOULD NOT be going on under POTUS45. And Dictator XI knows it.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. CHINA is securing the world for itself now.

Well noted.

Yours truly carries a signed statement in her wallet — NO Remdesivir, NO ventilator, NO COVID “vaccine” of any type — along with a list of what IS DEMANDED in the event of hospitalization: HCQ / Ivermectin, vitamin C and vitamin D, Doxycycline, Regeneron, Budesonide.
A copy of this statement is on the door of the refrigerator, with “EMS: Take With Me” written on it.

The buried lead in all this:
Omicron is mild for virtually every one, but the overwhelming majority who get it, are vaxed.

The local paper did the same trick today.
They are talking about a larger percentage of new infection getting Omicron, then with reinfection. But they don’t say how many of the new infections were vaxed.

Good morning, Coothie.

From the beginning, TMH has run with the propaganda narrative hard and heavy and still promote vaccines.

For a while they had a twitter feed series on admissions for covid listed unvaccinated and vaccinated alleged data. Of course, the unvaccinated admissions always out-numbered the vaccinated. But we learned what the hospitals used to determine who was ‘vaccinated’ and who was ‘unvaccinated’ and how the numbers were fudged. They finally quit that, a while back, I think.

Good morning everyone! Last night, I enjoyed American Thought Leaders. Jan interviewed Liel Leibovitz. It is very encouraging. Liel encourages us to ‘go slow, build things.’ At about the 50 minute mark Lief suggests we “Live not by lies.” (book by Rod Dreher) Liel said ‘if you are in an arrangement in which you are forced to lie, simply to be accepted, there is no growth, there is no light, there is no hope.’ He has walked away from the leftist ideology and explains that if you have to lie, then you have already paid a price. https://www.theepochtimes.com/how-the-left-became-illiberal-liel-leibovitz-on-a-new-coalition-of-the-politically-homeless_4193666.html

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.

Seven Hours in January Was Not Seven Days in May – American Thinker
By Thomas Buckley

As the Congressional Select Committee winds its way to its pre-ordained conclusion that what happened at the Capitol last year was an attempt by former President Trump, every elected Republican, anyone who has ever worn a red hat (MAGA-emblazoned or not), and everyone who has ever stayed at a hotel to overthrow the government, it should be noted — quite clearly and succinctly — that seven hours in January was not Seven Days in May.

…..

In a proper insurrection or coup, one of the key elements is control of the media. If this were a legitimate attempt to overthrow the government, the planners, in theory, would have made sure that only evil Fox News was left on the air, that it had changed its logo to incorporate buffalo horns, and that all other media — including social — was broadcasting or retweeting or posting reruns of “Welcome Back, Kotter.” The fact that Fox News personnel were real-time texting government officials imploring them to quell the Capitol situation immediately is pretty much the exact opposite of that.

….

In Edward Luttwak’s extremely interesting book Coup D’état: A Practical Handbook, he outlines a series of practical necessities a successful overthrow entails. A neutralized opposition, media control, military support, dedicated and discrete supporters throughout government offices, speed&nbspcomment imageof implementation, a detailed and logistically feasible organizational action plan, and the immediate institutionalization of the new government are all among the key elements to prevailing. Since what occurred on January 6 not only lacked any of these elements but, by all accounts, had the exact opposite characteristics means, again, the premise that an actual government overthrow was in process is ludicrous.

To an extent, these simple facts are somewhat akin to the key event in the Sherlock homes story “The Adventure of Silver Blaze.” Holmes focuses on a “curious incident:” the dog on the premises did not bark, leading the detective to the idea that the ne’er-do-well was known to the animal. This concept is also known as a “negative fact,” which involves the absence of one thing proving the truth of another.

That is what the Select Committee has been, unwittingly, been providing the public — in its hellbent effort to make positive assertions to convince the public about what “really” happened January 6, it has actually been supplying numerous negative facts.

comment imageAnother negative fact is that those participants the feds have rounded up and charged have not been charged with anything even remotely related to a treasonous, insurrectionist coup attempt.

A third negative fact is that the riot, in fact, ended any consideration of and debate about the status of potentially questionable electors. Again, a proper coup would have let the effort move forward in the hope that it would succeed and only be triggered if there was a failure.

A final negative fact is that, despite the avalanche of anniversary coverage, little has been dedicated to the idea of what would have happened if the insurrection had been successful. If those pushing the story now actually thought that it could have “worked” they would be screaming about that horrifying potentiality from the rooftops. Since they’re not, it means even they do not really take the notion seriously.

None of this is to defend the sheer blechiness of the riot — not only was it wrong and illegal, it was rock paper stupid from a political standpoint — with the fact that literally everything else went wrong for the administration and the Democrats in Congress in 2021, the riot provided them with the only even theoretically plausible lifeline to retain political legitimacy. In other words, imagine what the Democrats would be talking about if they could not be talking about this? **crickets**

Trump officially lost in 2020 — now whether that was due to a collaborationist media, vapor trails of zeroes worth of dark money, extremely dodgy election systems, the actual Big Lie that was the Biden campaign, his own personality (but probably not his policies), that there may have been 75,000 white men (the only demographic Trump saw a decline of support in, by the way) who were brainwashed into believing that to vote for him was a racist act, COVID, generalized drama exhaustion, a belief that Biden would in fact be a President, or whatever other reason can be debated, the fact is that Donald Trump is not currently President of the United States.

And that may be the most telling negative fact of all.

I am bring this up because what I am anticipating is what we should expect to see with other food stocks. A shift in buying habits as choices narrow. If you can not get steak, you will buy hamburger, if you can not buy beef you will buy pork, if no pork and beef, you buy chicken and very last more eggs. (I am freezing packets of sausage,onion & pepper to make omelets.🤓 )

……

RF121 brought this up yesterday:

 Reply to  Gail Combs

 January 4, 2022 22:43

Animals and humans that eat the proper diet do not have dental problems. Weston Price did a study 100 years or so ago and showed that hunter gatherer societies had no dental carries and perfectly aligned teeth.

SWEET FEED
I am assuming that RF121 is talking about too much sugar. AKA SWEET FEED which I refuse to have on my property. Not only is all that molasses bad for the animal it also contains whole grains and cracked corn. The molasses makes them bolt their feed and you will find all you have done is plant a nice crop of mixed oats & wheat since the horse did not crush the grains. You are also courting diabetes later on in life too.

PELLETED GRAINS
Up to 20% distillers dried grains is an ingredient in pelleted feed. This is the leftover from brewing alcohol and means the sugar has been fermented out. The rule of thumb is NO MORE than 5% of a horse’s feed should be grain. With ponies it should be A LOT LESS. Actually I feed NO GRAIN (high in starch) except as a treat when I catch my ponies. They get 1 to 2 tablespoons & the vitamin and mineral mix depending on size. My vet has been very surprised that in 30 years with up to 25 ponies, I have never had a pony founder. (Caused by too much sugar too fast)

AGE
The grinding teeth (molars) continue to grow on horses until age 25. These means some where after that age they start losing teeth. The more hay (dried grass) they eat the faster the teeth wear out. Northern ponies/horses lose the teeth quicker and horses that are always stabled lose them the fastest. <— Personal observation.

I have five ponies in this category, the oldest being 46. If I had been a smart business person I would have sold off these ponies when they reached their late teens but I am too soft hearted and these guys are very very good with children so they earn the extra care.

FEEDING aged animals.
Equine Senior ($25/50lb) is very expensive CRAP! What I feed is a mix of 1/2 beet pulp for fiber bulk (dried shredded & pelleted after the sugar is removed) and pelleted hay — a mix of bremuda, timothy & alfalfa. The amount of alfalfa (very rich) is dependent on the pony. To this I add a vitamin & mineral mix. In the summer they get grass and just enough of this to keep their weight up. This could also be used on pet sheep & goats since they also run into the no teeth problem as they get older.
……

What I am afraid of is a shift in buying habits. As the grain supply dries up, I expect ranchers & horsemen to start buying the alfalfa or alfalfa mix to substitute for grain.

I did plant a lot of grazing rye but it will not really be ready for a major amount of grazing until early spring.

The drying up of the grain supply is also going to have a cascading effect. CAFOs (confined animal feeding operations) have become the predominant method of raising livestock in the USA. For Cattle Sheep and goats that means a LOT of hay and grain. For chickens and pigs it means a LOT of grain.

As farmers find they can not feed their animals, expect a glut on the market and then a drying up of the supplies of meat. The small grass-fed beef operations will be OK but the dairy industry is also going to take a hit. Dairy cows (and goats) are fed a high calcium grain to increase milk production even if they are on grass.

Unfortunately we in the USA have bred animals DEPENDENT on grain supplementation. Lets hope there are enough people with hardy heritage breeds to help us get through this mess.

Native birds might restock poultry industry’s genetic stock

….Purdue University animal sciences professor Bill Muir was part of an international research team that analyzed the genetic lines of commercial chickens used to produce meat and eggs around the world. Researchers found that commercial birds are missing more than half of the genetic diversity native to the species, possibly leaving them vulnerable to new diseases and raising questions about their long-term sustainability.

“Just what is missing is hard to determine,” Muir said. “But recent concerns over avian flu point to the need to ensure that even rare traits, such as those associated with disease resistance, are not totally missing in commercial flocks.”

He said it’s also important to preserve non-commercial breeds and wild birds for the purpose of safeguarding genetic diversity and that interbreeding additional species with commercial lines might help protect the industry.….

My goats and sheep are MUTTS, I have been breeding for hardiness as well as size (meat) and wool/cashmere. I do not want purebreds they are just not as hardy.

Gail Combs

Spaghetti, Lasagna, Moussaka, Hamburger Beef Stroganoff, rice dishes…

You can cut raw bulk sausage 50/50 with hamburger to cut back on the salt, saute it and use that in bean soup (along with onions, celery, bell peppers, mushrooms…) or the same mix can be frozen in small packets for later use in omelets — just add the shredded cheese of your choice.

Gail Combs

It just occurred to me that our grain supply IS BEING SHIPPED TO CHINA!!!!

It would not be the first time the USA PROPPED UP A COMMUNIST COUNTRY.

Remember on TWATTER (don’t trust) there were stories of the USDA paying farmers plowing under fields of grain? PLANTED???

St Louis Fed: The Russian Wheat DealHindsight vs. Foresight

JULY and August 1972, the United States sold to the Soviet Union about 440 million bushels of wheat for approximately $700 million, more than the total U.S. commercial wheat exports for the year beginning in July 1971. The sales were equivalent to 30 percent of average annual U.S. wheat production…

JSTOR: THE WORLD FOOD SITUATION AND THE CONSUMER Expanded …

Let me remind you that the Soviet purchase of U.S. wheat for shipment in the 1 972-73 crop year was around 422 million bushels plus some 275 million bushels of feed grains and 35 million bushels of soybeans. The largest quantity of grain ever sold by one country to another.

The really interesting document is the 1974 CIA report:
“A Study of Climatological Research as it Pertains to Intelligence Problems”

Pg 7

In 1972 the Intelligence Community was faced with two issues concerning climatology:

* No methodologies available to alert policymakers of adverse climatic change

* No tools to assess the economic and political impact of such a change.

  :wpds_arrow: “…SINCE 1972 THE GRAIN CRISIS HAS INTENSIFIED Since 1969 the storage of grain has decreased from 600 million metric tons to less than 100 million metric tons – a 30 day supply… many governments have gone to great lengths to hide their agricultural predicaments from other countries as well as from their own people…

And then there is PRIVATELY OWNED CARGILL who was doing secret deals with the Soviets DESPITE THE EMBARGO. This is wiped from the internet of course but there is this:

…..Cargill subsequently diversified into businesses such as vegetable oil, soybeans and animal feed while building a large international trading network. Cargill was willing to do business with just about any country, including the ideological foes of the United States. It started selling grain to the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe in the early 1960s, but it was a series of giant grain sales to the Soviets in the 1970s that put the company at the center of a major controversy.

The ensuing rise in agricultural prices caused Cargill’s revenues to soar and gave the company the resources for a major expansion in the grain business, in other areas of agribusiness such as high-fructose corn syrup and cocoa processing, and in other industries such as steel (under the name North Star) and coal. Among its purchases was meatpacker MBPXL, later renamed Excel.

In 1985 Cargill dropped a controversial plan to import a large quantity of Argentine wheat. It also faced controversy and a federal investigation in the early 1990s over reports that it was skirting U.S. sanctions against dealing with Cuba and Libya.

In 1999, after agreeing to divest some assets to satisfy antitrust regulators, Cargill acquired its chief rival, Continental Grain, solidifying its dominant trading position. Cargill went on to make more acquisitions, including animal feed producer Agribrands International, European corn miller Cerestar, and 65 percent of fertilizer giant IMC Global, which was combined with Cargill’s fertilizer business to form Mosaic Company….

https://www.corp-research.org/cargill

And this:
Soros and His CIA Friends Targeted USSR/Russia in 1987 …

In 1972, Cargill sold two million tons of wheat to the Soviet Union in a direct sales operation.

And when we checkout Cargill and Chyna?

Cargill Expands Plant-Based Protein Food for ChinaCompany plans to introduce consumer brand called PlantEver

Will China’s Imports of Corn Remain High in 2022?

China claims to have had a record harvest in the fall, but the current price and import levels give reason to be skeptical

The amount of corn China has imported in 2021 grew exponentially when compared to years past, and Brett Stuart, CEO and co-founder of Global AgriTrends, indicated a similar amount of corn could be imported by Asia’s largest nation again in 2022.

Stuart analyzed China’s impact on the global agrifood industry while speaking during the webinar, 2022 & the Global Commodity Super Cycle, part of the Balchem Real Science Lecture Series. The webinar was held on December 15.

Citing U.S. Department of Agriculture data, Stuart noted that China imported about 26 million metric tons of corn in 2021, yet before 2020 it seldom imported much more than 5 million metric tons in a year.

Personally, I lost interest in eating in restaurants before Covid. Do it out of necessity. DW cooks better and at a better price point.

Much of the country likely doesn’t know how much they rely, DAILY, on Sysco, PFG, US Foods, and other companies.

https://www.rickholmes.net/the-three-states-of-tennessee/

https://tngenweb.org/maps/tngrand3.htm

A couple of summaries from different angles for those interested in our state in light of the posts today. It is widely known that there are three states within the one state of TN. I have lived in two and worked out of the other one.

However, I belong to the “scrappy” Scots-Irish of east TN and will live my remaining days on this planet here. My wife and I both come from the early settlers to the region. About 75% of the people here sided with the Union during the war. This was one area that the phrase “brother against brother” was the truth. Overall, slavery was not prevalent at all in east TN. Rick Holmes’ article gives a short answer why. The major answer is because the rowdy poor people who came here from being oppressed primarily in Britain, did not take well to making slaves out of anybody else, nor did they need any on the smaller tracts they settled in the mountains/hills. They saw people as people and dependent on each other. There was marriage with Cherokees as well. Not all of them were on the Trail of Tears to Oklahoma as the history books suggest. I know first hand, there is Cherokee blood in me from my maternal side. Some married whites to avoid it, others relocated to safer areas, and others simply were protected by locals or hid out in the mountains.

Gail Combs

Actually the North Carolina locals also refused to drive out the Cheokee. Remember the Cherokee were farmers just like them. Instead the federal government had to send in federal troops.

I notice that history ‘lesson’ has ALSO been scrubbed from the internet.🙄

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

There is a small Cherokee reservation east of Great Smoky National Park (which for anyone who doesn’t know, puts the reservation in North Carolina).

The irony is, it’s not far from I-40. But if you take I-40 west you eventually end up in the Cherokee part of Oklahoma.

TradeBait2

That is true about our neighbors to the east, Gail. Similar backgrounds, mindsets and values. One of many scrubs by the narrative building evil doers.

Yeah, and this is the same Gov. Hochul who made a diktat that the supply of MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES in New York State will go first to “African-Americans, Latinos, and other persons of color who have borne the brunt of COVID infection due to white supremacy.” I heard the audio clip of Hochul announcing this a couple of days ago on 77WABC, New York.
The same radio station also broadcast a statement by a DemCommunist U.S. House member from New York City that COVID testing kits will be given out first to “minorities and other persons of color” since they were “discriminated against during the pandemic.” That’s what he was told by the city’s Health Department.

Urban elites have been openly contemptuous of rural people for at least a century. Even in the 1930s you’d see pictures of rural people which made them look retarded (as in look literally retarded) in the mass media, with the implication that these were typical country folk.

Yep, as did Hootenanny, an imitation show by another network (I forget which).

CBS cancelled a large number of shows aimed at the “great flyover unwashed” back in the day, although looking at the likes of “Green Acres”, “The Beverly Hillbillies”, and other shows of that *cough* genre, it was obvious that Hollyweird held us normies in comtempt.

That didn’t keep Hee Haw from being funny, entertaining, and a showcase for talent. Which was my point.

The pit of Hellywood holds all that is good and true in contempt, be it fathers, men, boys, REAL women and girls, intact families, Christians, conservatives, MAGA folk, and now, Purebloods (for lack of a better term; the show “Underdog” is now bouncing around my head).

Farmers are being pushed down all over the world, not just the USA. And that is yet another effect of big Chem/Pharma/etc. “Knockout” seeds didn’t exist when I was really young…

I agree that it had psy-ops involved, but I don’t think they were all that one-sided. As with “Deplorables”, there was a certain amount of “shuckin’ and jivin’ by ‘country folk'” that actually mocked the infamous “urban elites”.

This was shut down in the infamous “rural purge” of the airwaves — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rural_purge

Incidentally, when we went to Saint Petersburg, we noted that there were certain conventions involved regarding anything Ukrainian…..in short, it was Hee-Haw dubbed into Russian. All the girls were pretty ditzes; all the men were lazy and unsophisticated; the music was happy and popular; the outfits were colorful….all they needed were a hound dog and animated dancing pigs.

Those exist in almost every country and culture. Seems everyone needs a dog to kick… Ask a Canadian for some “Newfie” jokes… Or an Englishman for a “Pat and Mike” joke…

CBS has a nasty habit of getting cheap and killing shows at their peak… probably because the stars were getting too expensive…

The likes of Jackie Gleason, Ernie Kovacs, Red Skelton, Carol Burnett, Steve Allen, Jack Benny, and those of the “Golden Age” of television will probably never been seen again. Happy that YouTube and DVDs (albeit often expensive) exist to preserve their genius. That, probably, is one of the few things about YouTube that I like…

I think they were mocking “elites,” as you say. Also that they were having fun with the “country” image by exaggerating it, which is one facet of comedy.

We pretty much Never watched Hee Haw, but even I know the chorus to that last song 😉

Lol. Some country voices are wonderful, some not so much.

Hey DPat, I’ve been following China’s Belt and Road Initiative since they proposed it in 2013 and the Belt and Road agreements are everywhere. The following agreement signed on December 26 should give us all pause…..

Cuba and China have signed a cooperation plan to push forward construction projects under Beijing’s controversial overseas infrastructure program, the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), which has saddled many participating countries with heavy debt loads.
The Chinese Embassy in Cuba announced the agreement on its website on Dec. 26, saying that the deal was inked two days earlier by He Lifeng, head of China’s top economic planning agency, the National Development and Reform Commission, and Cuban Vice Prime Minister Ricardo Cabrisas.

It appears that China has its eyes set on Cuba’s natural resources, as a Chinese researcher told China’s state-run media outlet Global Times on Dec. 26: “Cuba is rich in mineral and oil resources, and is a major source of nickel ore for China.”

China has been Cuba’s important energy partner. Chinese companies have supplied wind turbines to Cuba’s wind farms and overseen the construction of Cuba’s first biomass-fired power plant at Ciro Redondo.

The U.S.-based organization American Security Project, in an article published in March, warned about Cuba’s energy dependency on China and Venezuela as having “serious implications for hemispheric security.”

In addition, the Chinese paramilitary has also provided “counter-terrorism” training to the Cuban military and police forces responsible for suppressing anti-government protesters.

I hear that also. I wish he would listen to his own instincts not those who have not his best interest. Where is his discernment or is the political class so rotten that he has no choice of people to surround himself with?

mollypitcher5

Interesting and I believe it.

I liked your witty way of expressing yourself 🙂

I wonder about that why he allows people to play him?

Cuppa Covfefe

Give them enough rope…

He’s no rookie. Not by a LONG shot.

Sometimes it seems that if GOD Himself were President or some local position, people would complain.

(And complain they did, in ancient Israel… cf- KINGS and JUDGES…)…..

You are right. I am just suspicious when
Miss Graham is involved he is a sly fellow.

There’s a close-up of the chart at the first link.

Emerald Robinson quote: “Earlier this year, I predicted on Twitter that 2022 would be the year that the vaccinated would get sick and die — and that the government would blame the unvaccinated for the failure of the new vaccines so that new lockdowns (and new mandates and new restrictions) could be imposed on the free nations of the West to destroy our remaining civil liberties. I’ve seen nothing yet to temper those dire predictions. The Great Reset is still going according to plan. 

Prepare accordingly.”

This is a good article about whether comparing Covid lockdowns and mandates to the Nazis is acceptable. The writer is Jewish, and makes some excellent points:

“Is behavior only Nazi-like when it is dividing a society along racial or religious lines? I would suggest that dividing citizens along political lines is equally dangerous. Minorities don’t always have to be race-based. For many tyrannies, political distinctions are more convenient precisely because they are fluid and their definition is up to whomever is in charge. 

Is behavior only Nazi-like if you’re actually murdering a disfavored class (as they are today in China)? Or is it bad enough just to create separate rules for these people, limit their freedom of movement, and restrict their right to patronize certain establishments?
 
The Nazis didn’t get around to the full-scale Holocaust until World War II was near its end. They’d already been Nazis for a long time. And before the yellow stars were mandated, they’d already confiscated Jewish property, kicked Jews out of businesses, and barred them from entering public parks and nice restaurants. Is that Nazi-like behavior or not? And, if it is, is it fair to draw comparisons, or not?

Good! Jews are waking up. NAZISM was not all about the Jews, but BOLSHEVIK DECEPTION made it look that way, starting in the 1970s, because “antisemitism” was great cover to defend Jewish BOLSHEVIKS, and was used as a group divider to keep Jews in their assigned leftist lane.
