Dear KAG: 20220112 Open Thread

Okay, now that we have that out of the way, and the CDC is dropping truthbombs in the whole COVID thing, we’re getting somewhere.

Alright, what else do I have saved up after being out half the day on Tuesday.

Really? Most of the rest of the country knows all about it.

The FBI needs to check its files.

Oh, yeah, and at the other show hearing:

I object to singling out Peoria as it’s a cute river town, but still….

Seeing that would be nice, wouldn’t it.

The nasal pharynx? Does Little Tony think we don’t know what that is? Opera singers learn early on to open it to produce clear tones. Opening it is real easy. All you gotta do is flare your nostrils, lifting the cartilage in the bridge of the nose, and feel the soft palate in the back of the mouth lift, and…probably TMI for those who don’t do this for a living. It does take practice.

IDK, the people – including physicians – seem to be waking up.

Uh…yeah.

I love a man who starts the day with the Lord in His house.

Have a good day y’all.

(I don’t remember who brought this to a daily in the comments, but thanks.)

And, of course, the obligatory George Carlin:

Per the Boss:

In honor of Carol, my mother’s friend who did what she had to do to protect herself and her children when it was simply not done the way she did it. May she rest in peace.

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

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

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

Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.

Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there. The “Rescue Thread” is also over there. In the event a rendezvous of the tree is needed, please check it out, as well as the newest rescue venue.

Auntie DePat’s requests:

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

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

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

One other vital note:

Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.

Today’s readings come not from the regular Mass readings, but from those of today’s Saint, St. Bernard of Corleone.

EZEKIEL 33:12-16

12And you, son of man, say to your people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him when he transgresses; and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall by it when he turns from his wickedness; and the righteous shall not be able to live by his righteousness when he sins. 13Though I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, yet if he trusts in his righteousness and commits iniquity, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered; but in the iniquity that he has committed he shall die. 14Again, though I say to the wicked, `You shall surely die,’ yet if he turns from his sin and does what is lawful and right, 15if the wicked restores the pledge, gives back what he has taken by robbery, and walks in the statutes of life, committing no iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die. 16None of the sins that he has committed shall be remembered against him; he has done what is lawful and right, he shall surely live.

PSALMS 51:8-12, 17, 19

6Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart. 7Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. 8Fill me with joy and gladness; let the bones which thou hast broken rejoice. 9Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. 10Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me. 15O Lord, open thou my lips, and my mouth shall show forth thy praise. 17The sacrifice acceptable to God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

LUKE 15:3-7

3So he told them this parable: 4“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one which is lost, until he finds it? 5And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, `Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.’ 7Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

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.

Okay, this was not exactly funny, but I was on the treadmill thinking, It couldn’t happen to more deserving people.

Looking for the right job for me and ran across a company called Benchling at Linkedin. They have an opening listed for both San Francisco and Boston. If you wonder why BillG and MarkZ are so twisted, I suspect it has to do with ‘missions’ like this one.

For something that affects the entire human race, one might think they would have the respect to ask permission from us all. But no…

Over the coming years, biotech will fundamentally rewrite the way we live. Gene editing and cell therapy are dramatically changing how we treat cancer and other major illnesses. Biofuels and biomaterials are transforming the cars we drive, the clothes we wear, and the makeup of everyday objects. Crop science and synthetic biology are producing sustainable and ethical food. Benchling’s mission is to accelerate the research that propels us towards this reality, and magnify its impact, through modern software.

Every day, scientists around the world use Benchling’s applications, platform, & analytics in their efforts to solve humanity’s most pressing problems. For these scientists, Benchling is the central technology they use to conduct their research. Our customers include pharmaceutical giants, leading biotechs, and the world’s most renowned research institutes.”

Once upon a time, I explained to a unit chief why I liked President Trump after the u/c made a snarky comment at the break area on Turkey-pardon day. I said Trump’s ways are endearing to me, I myself was never known for tact, and I appreciated the many good things he was doing for us all like giving his salary to good causes since he did not need extra $. The u/c did not fire me for speaking up though you are probably right I was in the minority.

Much later, I was told some thought I was naive. That is not a bad thing if the alternative is knowing some around you are doing things they should not. Then, you have to walk away. In a hierarchical management organization where many are veterans, there is the tendency to obey superiors. I never learned any of that so try to treat everyone equally and always say what I believe is correct. It is much easier to remember when one is not fibbing and people know where you stand. Others might not like you, but truth is a gift.

The Real Threat To Democracy Is Corrupting Wealth Inequality

Try to find a developing-world kleptocracy in which the top few collect more than 97% of the income from capital. There aren’t any that top the USA, the world’s most extreme kleptocracy. We’re Number 1.

Imagine a town of 1,000 adults and their dependents in which one person holds the vast majority of wealth and political influence. Would that qualify as a democracy? Now imagine that 100 of the 1,000 adults own 90% of all the wealth, collect 97% of all the income from capital and have virtually all the political power. How can a society in which 90% of the populace is decapitalized, disenfranchised and demoralized by political powerlessness be a democracy?

This is America: a kleptocratic autocracy that serves the few at the expense of the many, strip-mining the bottom 90% under the guise of a fraudulent “democracy” in which only the few wield real power. Recall Smith’s Neofeudalism Principle #1: If the citizenry cannot replace a kleptocratic government and/or limit the power of the financial Aristocracy at the ballot box, the nation is a democracy in name only.

It got cemented in place when the Supreme court said a corporation was a ‘person’ and could donate UNLIMITED AMOUNTS TO CAMPAIGNS via PACs.

ForGodandCountry

Indeed.

I’ve had a lot of thoughts about that ruling recently.

Turns out it was a key cog in the wheel of current injustice and events unfolding.

Gail Combs

Supreme Court rulings AGAINST the US Constitution over the last 100 years have been…. NASTY. They have slowly eroded our rights and freedoms. We no longer have the RIGHT to a trial in front of a jury. Juries are no longer told THEY CAN NULLIFY A BAD LAW!

And a wholr lot more. Like an illegal DOES not produce a US citizen by squating and shoving out a baby in the USA.

Californicate actually has hotels where CHINESE WOMEN wait to produce a ‘US Citizen’ which they then take home to CHINA TO RAISE AS A CHINESE COMMUNIST!!!

Earl Warren and the “Warren Court” had an awful lot to do with that. Figures, that he was from Kalifornistan…

And to think that the judiciary was originally conceived to be the most junior of the three branches…

Looking back at almost 70 years, I can now see how far off the rails California was even back then. Why, oh why, didn’t we realize it???

I’m glad she’s making those reports, but she said something that someone should never say in a public video like that, IMO. She said she has an amazing ability to dissociate, indicating that has helped her get through the things she has witnessed, and that if she didn’t have that, she would not have been here this long and that she “would have probably pulled the trigger.” I hope that doesn’t come back to bite her at some point.

As for the concrete — that reminds me that Q made some points about people using the term “concrete.” It might have no relation to this. I’m so sick of these people and their communism.

They have no God, and…in having no God…..they are left naked to fear.

The reaction to fear is a insatiable need for control and rule by dictate.

The lack of God also allows them to believe that “the end justifies the means”.

That fear + belief – God = communism.

Such people are doomed.

What does it profit a man to gain the world but lose his soul?

Unfortunately, we must suffer with them before we may live in peace and happiness forever without them.

Earlier today, the White House pushed the Director of the National Economic Council, Brian Deese, to the podium to defend the administration from the outcomes of their economic policies.  Consider this presser the pre-quake tremors.

Mr. Deese begins his presentation by saying giving American workers back their jobs, after shutting down their workplaces and locking out their ability to work at their job, is the equivalent of creating new jobs; the administration is very proud of their magnanimity. Mr. Deese then moves on to the inflation data from today and celebrates a “decrease in the rate of price increases.” 

Yes, he used those exact words.

Deese then goes on to say [01:59] that despite the claimed 7% inflation, prices at the grocery store are not higher, gas prices have dropped, home heating costs and natural gas costs are lower, and things are going swimmingly.  I’m not joking about any of that, just watch the first four minutes:

There was really bad news following the White House celebrating their current economic success. Brian Deese stated the White House intends to use the federal government to get involved in supply chains (distribution), pricing (federal price controls), availability (distribution of products under newly claimed emergency federal authority power via the “pandemic”) and providing relief (protecting urban areas).

What Deese is saying there [4:00 – 09:00] is the worst thing we could ever want to hear when there are massive price increases and simultaneous shortages. The federal government is ‘leaning forward’, and is going to get more involved.

Then at 09:00 of the video, the alarm bells start ringing. Journalists asking Brian Deese what the White House is planning to do to get involved and provide national food security. “The shelves are too empty, and the food is too expensive. What is the White House going to do?

2) have not been approved under normal use
3) for which the makers have no legal liability whatsoever
4) force people to become uncompensated lab rats for corporate profit

“The white hats in the german military attempted to assassinate Hitler dozens of times, and paid with their lives and those of their families, Scott.”

Yeah, I’ve seen that show on the history channel too… 👍😂

And they failed, big-time.

And as I have said many times, if our hopes are on some small group inside the machine, as opposed to a clear majority in control of the military apparatus, then we’re just fooling ourselves because we like the narrative.

.

“And, like the rest of us, you have ZERO idea of what has been happening behind the scenes and who has sacrificed what in order to try and stop or sabotage what is happening.”

___________

And as I have said many times, if anything was happening ‘behind the scenes’ of a sufficient nature to actually make a difference, there would be evidence of the enemy taking damage.

The enemy must take damage in order for the enemy to be defeated. In earlier times this was well understood…

As I have also observed many times, if there is or was a significant contingent of white hats within the government, doing anything substantive at all, they have maintained absolute 100% operational secrecy for at least 5 years now.

No force of such required size has ever kept 100% operational secrecy in the history of the world, at least to my knowledge.

And as I have also observed many times, any ‘plan’ that results in the deaths of 100s of thousands of Americans and a foreign adversary taking over the United States government is, by definition, the greatest military failure in modern history, if not in world history.

But it’s always fun to pretend otherwise! 👍

Probably due to Iran’s recent comments about sending hundreds of suicide bombers to the U.S. plus the wide open southern border. Then again, they know what they have been doing and what justice would look like.

Cuppa Covfefe

They probably have already entered through the southern border. Lots of those in the caravans did NOT look South American, Mexican, or Mexican-Indian… but they sure looked Middle Eastern. And there have been reports of known terrorists being seen, and actually a few being caught (!) on their way through. Probably released immediately by Bye, Dung’s shills…

The lawyer says Epps is not an FIB informant. But he doesn’t have to be an informant to do some work with/for them. He doesn’t have to be an agent, and he doesn’t even have to be on their payroll. It could be a wink-wink situation with no paper trail.

RF121

Too focused on FBI. What if he was a part of the House/Pelosi involvement in this and doing their bidding.

Gail Combs

It was whoever was behind 9/11, the Patriot Act, the formation of the Oath Keepers and Janet Napolitano’s Department of Homeland Security’s swivel from targeting Muslim Jihadist to targeting Military and law enforcement vets.

See my comment HERE.

REVOLVER

“…. in many respects, Epps is quite an impressive figure. He served in the US Marines and ultimately worked his way up to full Marine Sergeant, according to his previous public title “SGT USMC” (Sergeant, US Marine Corp) and his private Facebook nostalgic musings.

Researchers went on to locate Epps’s ranch in Arizona, his events business, his private holding company, along with every publicly discoverable record imaginable. They even found his Facebook likes, religious affiliation, and preferred insurance agents and plumbing services, which we’ll avoid reporting in the interest of sparing unnecessary private details.

Epps, who grew up in Arizona and still lives there today, was contacted directly by local newspaper Arizona Central on January 11 — less than a week after January 6, and just three days after Epps was added to the FBI Most Wanted List, a detail upon which we will elaborate later on in this report.

AZ Central, which published its contemporaneous article on Epps under the original headline, In video, Trump supporter says, ‘We need to go into the Capitol’, first confirms his attendance at the Capitol protest:

.

.

.

Epps didn’t stop at simply confirming his presence at the Capitol. Epps effectively corroborated on record that he was the exact same man telling Trump supporters they needed to go inside the Capitol….

So to recap, on January 8, the FBI begged the public’s help to identify the mysterious “Person #16.”

Then, a funny thing happened: the public actually delivered.

Initially, swarms of left-wing researcher accounts, Antifa groups, and partisan non-profits leapt into Crowdsourced Internet Detective mode. They assigned Epps’s identity various hashtags and tracked his movements throughout January 5-6….

Within days of the riot at the Capitol, archives quickly swelled with videos and images of Epps.

Ray Epps played two roles in virtually every encounter during his Commando Capitol Tour on January 6.

First, Epps instructed his commandos and the crowds at his attention to rush into the Capitol and let nothing stop them. Second, Epps assiduously protected cops and law enforcement so no local or federal officers would be harmed during the precision breaches.

.

.

.

The NYT appears to be running cover for the FBI by referencing Epps’s appearance in “widely-circulated videos” and concluding that he “seemed to have acted on his own.”

This media malpractice NYT cover-up lie could not be further from the truth.

Below, we see Epps give explicit instructions, mere minutes before the very first breach of a police barricade on January 6. He gives these instructions to a still-unindicted, still “FBI Wanted” ex-Marine commando nicknamed “MaroonPB” who is antagonizing police officers with a blazing bullhorn….

After receiving instructions from Epps, MaroonPB replies, “Noted” — which, last we checked, means “stipulated”, “understood” or “agreed.” This is an explicit verbal agreement between two or more people — the opposite of the NYT’s claim that Epps “acted on his own.”

In case it wasn’t clear enough already, Epps also says “One more thing” — stipulating he gave the man a set of instructions before adding others. And those next instructions were, “When we go in, leave this here,” likely in reference to MaroonPB’s cannister of bear spray…..

ℝ𝕖𝕧𝕠𝕝𝕧𝕖𝕣 𝕥𝕙𝕖𝕟 𝕘𝕠𝕖𝕤 𝕚𝕟𝕥𝕠 𝕊𝕥𝕖𝕨𝕒𝕣𝕥 ℝ𝕙𝕠𝕕𝕖𝕤 𝕨𝕙𝕠 𝕖𝕤𝕥𝕒𝕓𝕝𝕚𝕤𝕙𝕖𝕕 𝕥𝕙𝕖 𝕆𝕒𝕥𝕙 𝕂𝕖𝕖𝕡𝕖𝕣𝕤, 𝕁𝕌𝕊𝕋 𝔸𝕊 𝔻𝔼ℙ𝔸ℝ𝕋𝕄𝔼ℕ𝕋 𝕆𝔽 ℍ𝕆𝕄𝔼𝕃𝔸ℕ𝔻 𝕊𝔼ℂ𝕌ℝ𝕀𝕋𝕐 𝕁𝕒𝕟𝕖𝕥 ℕ𝕒𝕡𝕠𝕝𝕚𝕥𝕒𝕟𝕠 𝕋𝔸ℝ𝔾𝔼𝕋𝔼𝔻 ℍ𝕆𝕄𝔼 𝔾ℝ𝕆𝕎ℕ 𝕋𝔼ℝℝ𝕆ℝ𝕀𝕊𝕋𝕊….

So what exactly does the curious case of Stewart Rhodes have to do with Ray Epps?

Students of FBI history should quickly absorb the lesson that infiltrating Feds are like roaches: whenever you spot one, it is guaranteed there are dozens of others nearby. Feds simply never, ever, operate alone. This is how you end up with at least 12 FBI informants in a tiny “right-wing” Michigan militia plot from October 2020 (that’s just informants, not even agents), 15 informants in the “right-wing” 2016 Malheur plot, dozens in the 2014 Bundy Ranch affair — including six FBI undercover agents posing as fake documentarians shooting a fake documentary — and the list goes on.

You’ll be shocked, then, to learn that the Oath Keepers sport an eye-poppingly long history of FBI infiltration.

And lo and below, Ray Epps and Oath Keepers kingpin Stewart Rhodes are old pals in the organization. In fact, Stewart Rhodes was Ray Epps’s old boss. Back in 2011-2012, Epps was the Arizona state chapter leader of the Oath Keepers — the biggest Oath Keepers chapter in the country — while Rhodes was and remains the national leader….

…who cares.

Point is…

….it makes NO sense that the FBI has not arrested and charged Ray Epps with anything, particularly given the now-widespread public video evidence of his involvement in events of Jan. 6.

MOREOVER….

We know why.

And the answer comes from the trial involving those accused in the plot to kidnap MI Gov. Whitmer…..another FBI construct and entrapment scheme, designed to generate a political narrative that would support the latger and more important Jan. 6th narrative.

In short……Epps won’t go to prison without spilling the beans, and the FBI won’t charge him because if it did then others inside the FBI would STOP being patsies for these FBI games.

I think it’s saying that people can be both obese and fit, and that we are discriminating against those who don’t fit both the idea of what fitness is perceived to be, as well as those who literally can’t fit into gym clothing and equipment.

For fitness to be truly inclusive, it will require many more practical changes: redesigned machines, much more visibility and opportunity for plus-size fitness models, multiple activewear brands selling 7X clothing. Beyond that, it will require a fundamental shift in our understanding of fitness, health, and weight. 

In a world where size is not used as a measurement of intelligence, competence, or mental stability, it might be possible to stop using it as a measurement of fitness too.

The article advocates for legislation to prevent/stop fat children being given lower grades, fat employees being paid less, etc. — which are problems I’ve never heard of.

There was nothing in the article about blood sugar levels, pre-diabetes and diabetes, the foods people eat, or blood work in relation to health.

“I think it’s saying that people can be both obese and fit…”

Well, you can’t. Sorry, but that is just the bald truth.

You can “fake it” sort of, if you are fat, but you are NOT really fit.

Body fat is hard on your organs. It’s hard on the joints. It causes diabetes in the longer term. It contributes to infertility and menstrual problems. There is nothing “healthy” about being fat.

This is just another offshoot of “everybody is ok,” the same as acceptance of transgender and other issues. We can’t have standards, because that’s “mean.”

TheseTruths

I hear you. The article starts off with the experience of a lady who had participated in strenuous sports (I forget what) and wanted to shake up her fitness routine. She already was doing weight training, etc. When she went to a gym for new ideas in personal training, they treated her (a size 16) as if she didn’t know anything about fitness or calories. So that’s where the article is coming from.

Funny that you don’t see any elite athletes who are size 16, except maybe in weightlifting or wrestling. I never see amateurs of that size who can keep up, either.

The article addresses the challenges of plus-sized women who want to go to a gym. Yet, going to a gym is not required to exercise. A simple internet search shows many things that can be done from home.

You’re spot on, and the article doesn’t touch these subjects:

Body fat is hard on your organs. It’s hard on the joints. It causes diabetes in the longer term. It contributes to infertility and menstrual problems. There is nothing “healthy” about being fat.

Aubergine

Well, size 16, depending on your natural build, can be not terribly “obese.” If you are 5’11” and a size 16, that’s one thing. If you are 5’2″ and size 16, that’s another.

I just don’t like glorifying what is OBVIOUSLY unhealthy, like the photo of the woman on the cover. All that belly fat is BAD.

The BQ Project….

Okey-dokey.

According to the BQ Nutrition Facts, a “serving” is 1/3 cup, or 40g. That means that a “cup” would be 3 servings, or 120g. The recipe calls for 2-1/4 cups — which would be 270g (120+120+30). One eighth of that (for a single biscuit) would be 33.75g.

According to the NDM Nutrition Facts, a “serving” is 23g, which makes a cup of pseudomilk. The recipe calls for 2/3 cups milk, so it needs 16g minus 1/3g of NDM. The pseudomilk instructions say to use 3-3/4 cups water to make a quart (4 cups) pseudomilk. If you look at that in 1/4 cups, that’s 15/4 cups water + NDM = 16/4 cups.

The water measure, then, is 2/3c x 15/16 (milkization) x 1/8 (single biscuit), or 30/384 cups. Since a cup is 12 ounces, and an ounce is 3 Tbsp, a cup is 36 Tbsp, and the water measure would be 2.8125 Tbsp, or drops shy of an ounce. Just for fun, we can multiply that by 8 and get 22.5, then “milkify” it by multiplying by 16/15 to get 24….and 24/36 of a cup is what the recipe asked for.

The method would be to preheat the t-o with its tray to 425. I’ll weigh out 16g of NDM, pour 3 Tbsp of water into a shotglass, put the NDM in, and stir. Then I’ll weigh out 34g of BQ, into my “mixing bowl”, stir, and drop onto a sheet of aluminum foil marked with a star. I can then pull the tray out of the oven, lift the sheet of aluminum, and drop it on the tray, putting back in the t-o for 10 minutes. From then, observation to ensure the top gets sufficiently browned. Once that happens, set foil aside to cool.

I can then roll into batch #2, which will be marked by a teardrop. That’s the feeling you have when you go to make something and realize you have no NDM. 34g of BQ and 3 Tbsp of water.

Gail Combs

I think I rather try to milk my goats instead.  :wpds_eek:

Oops, looks like there’s 2 Tbsp per Ounce. Revised liquid =

The water measure, then, is 2/3c x 15/16 (milkization) x 1/8 (single biscuit), or 30/384 cups. Since a cup is 12 ounces, and an ounce is 2 Tbsp, a cup is 24 Tbsp, and the water measure would be 1.875 Tbsp, or drops shy of an ounce. Just for fun, we can multiply that by 8 and get 15, then “milkify” it by multiplying by 16/15 to get 16….and 16/24 of a cup is what the recipe asked for.

Hmmm….that looks far too wet. We’ll see what it looks like in 10 minutes.

I enjoy the Bisquick posts, cthulu. Thank you for sharing, and I hope you post more.

A quick reminder to everyone else that a lot of prepper guides recommend adding Bisquick to your preps because it’s:

  • Widely available and budget-friendly
  • Very versatile
  • Has a long shelf-life
  • Doesn’t require much in the way of ingredients, equipment, or resources to whip up something edible

Yeah, obviously from-scratch homemade biscuits and pancakes are going to knock the socks off toaster Bisquick (no offense to anyone posting recipes–I enjoy reading those, too), but that’s not the point here. The point is to have something edible ready-to-go in the larder when milk, butter, refrigeration, or getting to store aren’t available options. This is emergency food. It’s not supposed to be a brag-worthy homemade dessert with the finest ingredients. It’s supposed to supplement your other emergency grub and keep you from starving in an emergency or engineered food shortage. That’s the point-of-view cthulu is writing from, and the snark he has gotten for it over the past day or two is disappointing.

We need to blow off steam.
However I would STILL prefer to try milking my goats than deal with powdered milk – BLECH!

I have Bisquick, powdered milk and canned milk in stock. BTW…. AND a goat milking stand!

Sadie Slays

I mean, yeah, I’d prefer fresh goat milk in a SHTF situation, too. And homemade buttermilk biscuits. And fresh venison. But I’m going to plan realistically, assume none of that will be available, and keep some Bisquick in the pantry along with powdered milk and instant potatoes and other processed food people turn their noses up at because it’s better than going hungry when the power is out for several days or the grocery stores unreachable/empty because the local government hasn’t plowed the roads after a major snow storm or there’s government-enforced dairy rationing or…any number of disasters. It’s good to have this stuff around and know how to cook it just in case, and a lot of people seem to miss that point with the, “Well, this from-scratch recipe with these fresh-from-the-farm ingredients that that require refrigeration/electricity/burdensome equipment in an emergency is way better than your Bisquick creations.” Yeah, no kidding. That’s not the point here.

ForGodandCountry

I am unaware of concerns re: electrical shortages, necessitating what you are talking about.

That seems outside of all that has been discussed up to now.

Sadie Slays

My comment about power outages was intended from a general prepping perspective, not anything specific to what SD has warned about. 

I started my own prepping journey years ago after a major blizzard completely wiped out the local food supply chain. 25+ inch snowfall made it impossible for delivery trucks to resupply the local grocery stores for 1-2 weeks. That was my first encounter with empty grocery store shelves, and it was scary. Prepping for natural disasters is prudent, too. 

The next wake-up call came in the past year when I had two major 24+ hour power outages–one in the winter and one in the summer–coupled with the Cyber Polygon warnings about cyber attacks on the electrical grid (more on that later). Those power outages, especially the one in sub-freezing weather, made me appreciate the need to 1) have a way to stay warm, 2) have the means and fuel to cook a meal in an extended outage, 3) have meals that are quick and easy to prepare in an emergency with limited fuel, ingredients, and equipment, 4) have a plan for lack of refrigeration. 

You mentioned above hunting deer. Do you have a plan to cook, serve, and store it during a long-term utility outage? I’m not snarking. This is a genuine logistical question. Additionally, if you are out hunting for deer due to food shortages, then 1) you’ll probably have company, and 2) should expect a deer scarcity as others are forced to hunt, too.

Now back to cyber attacks on the electrical grid. As recently as yesterday, the World Economic Forum was once again warning threatening cyber attacks. They have been warning about cyber attacks on utilities since Cyber Polygon in 2020, which makes me suspect that cutting the utilities in in their playbook. I recommend preparing accordingly. Stock some food that can be easily prepared in a utility outage, store water, have equipment and fuel to cook that doesn’t require utilities, have a way to stay warm, and have a plan for bathroom needs.

Has anyone cooked BQ over a camp fire? If so, lessons learned?

Sadie Slays

If you feel like experimenting, there are a lot of camping-specific Bisquick recipes out there on the internet (Campfire Drop Bisquick Biscuits is really a popular one).

cthulhu

I’d actually hope that practiced skill with BQ and toaster ovens might provide a variety of alternatives as needed (BQ over a camp fire, BQ on an engine block, BQ on a backyard BBQ….).

I’ve done two bakes towards single serving biscuits, and I’m not happy with that yet to move on.

cthulhu

Very much this. And people have been conditioned to order-out or pick up fresh goods or get some frozen dinner. The Bisquick toaster-oven concept is to strip out some finery and do basic things when things are not as well as they could be.

GrammyInD

Your BQ project has definitely motivated me to make up some more gluten free biscuit and bread mixes like I used to do, this time with ghee or coconut oil so they don ‘t have to be stored in the fridge. I have all the ingredients, but if there comes a situation where we have to adjust to multiple difficulties, I will be glad the work is reduced to just adding water and stirring.

cthulhu

OK, review — Batch #1 weighed out the BQ in the mixing bowl. In a separate tiny glass bowl, I measured out 16g of NDM — which turns out to be an awful lot. I had my shot glass with 2 Tbsp of water (after having caught and fixed a major calculation flub by looking at the markings on the shotglass) and mixed it into the tiny glass bowl. Then I took that pseudo milk and mixed it into the BQ and poured it on a sheet of tinfoil, then put the tinfoil in the tray in the oven.

The results were something, but they weren’t biscuity. More like a pancake. Flavor wasn’t bad. The preheated tray made the bottom quite brown. I had one more accident on this one — when I came in to check on it at 10 minutes, it had run out of time. So I had to put in another quarter and turn the knob. I don’t think its flaws can be blamed on that, however.

Batch #2 weighed out the BQ in the mixing bowl, measured 1.5 Tbsp in the shotglass, mixed, and put on tinfoil — which went into the t-o on the tray. The good news is that it looked like a biscuit. Took forever to get browned (NDM assists browning?). Bottom was quite brown. Tasted ok. But it was crumb-y — if you tried to cut off a piece or pull off a piece to put some butter on, it was like shattering glass — crumbs went everywhere. (NDM appears to assist integrity).

I’m not yet ready to recommend something to Scott, yet. Then, again, I bought 1.7 kilos of BQ, and I’ve only used 70 grams so far.

Alrighty then. My daughter gets married this Friday. I apparently have to participate in the event and get dressed up. My suggestion to go to Vegas like me and my wife did was totally ignored so here we are.

I expect to be out of comms for a couple of days while I deal with this. My wife has told me to shut up and do what I am told and don’t screw things up. A rough couple of days ahead while I act like a soy boy democrat.  😡

Just remember how much you love your wife, and love your daughter, and are willing to tolerate your new son-in-law enough that he’s still breathing…..
