Praying “Thy will be done” gives me great calm
For our vic’try is by God’s holy arm
Showered by His blessings from high above
Our Father in heaven, author of Love


Thy Will Be Done

Lord I pray to be led to and by you,
My thoughts, my speech, in all that I do
Make my whole life a reflection of Yours.
Lord, straighten my paths and open my doors.

Let my whole will be under Your care,
Guide all my life and guide me in prayer.
Without Your grace I’d have nothing at all,
Nothing but sin and my own shortfalls.

Guide me, I pray, to be closer to You;
Fill me with blessings, not just a few.
Give me the courage to follow Your Way,
And the strength to walk it, every day.

Be here beside me through good times and bad,
Along life’s ways, though happy or sad.
And when my journey is finally done,
Let my last thoughts be “Thy will be done.”



Thy Will . . . Not Mine

“Thy will be done” is one of the requests in the Lord’s Prayer. In part, Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name, Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:9–10). Jesus Himself pleaded for God’s will to be done in the Garden of Gethsemane.

Prior to His crucifixion, Jesus prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as You will” (Matthew 26:39). Jesus was committed to seeing God’s will accomplished, and the prayer “Thy will be done” was a theme of His life.

Most simply, to pray, “Thy will be done,” is to ask God to do what He desires. Of course, we’re praying to the God Who spoke all of creation into existence and Who said, “Let there be light,” and there was light (Genesis 1:3), so we know that . . .

. . . God’s sovereign decree will be accomplished,
whether or not we pray for it.

But there is another aspect of God’s will, which we call His “revealed” will or “preceptive” will. This is God’s “will” that He has revealed to us but that He does not force upon us. For example, it is God’s will that we speak the truth in love (Ephesians 4:15) and that we not commit adultery (1 Corinthians 6:18) or get drunk (Ephesians 5:18). When we pray, “Thy will be done,” we are asking God to increase righteousness in the world, to bring more people to repentance, and to further the cause of the kingdom of His Son.

When we pray, “Thy will be done,” we acknowledge God’s right to rule. We do not pray, “My will be done”; we pray, “Thy will be done.” Asking that God’s will be done is a demonstration of our trust that He knows what is best. It is a statement of submission to God’s ways and His plans. We ask for our will to be conformed to His.

The Lord’s Prayer begins by acknowledging God as Father in heaven. Jesus then presents three requests to the Father: 1) That God would cause His name to be hallowed; in other words, that God would act in such a way that he visibly demonstrates his holiness and his glory. That God would bring His kingdom to earth; that is, that the preaching of the gospel would convert sinners into saints who walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and that God would rid the world of evil and create the new heavens and new earth where God will dwell with His people and there will be no more curse and no more death (see Revelation 21—22). 3) That God’s will would be done “on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). In heaven, the angels perform God’s desire completely, joyfully, and immediately—what a world this would be if humans acted like that!

“Thy will be done” is not an impassive prayer of resignation. Jesus’ prayer in Gethsemane was not passive or fatalistic in the least; He bared His heart before the Father and revealed His ultimate desire: for God’s will to be accomplished. Praying, “Thy will be done,” acknowledges that God has more knowledge than we do and that we trust His way is best. And it is a commitment to actively work to further the execution of God’s will.

Romans 12:1–2 says, “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Understanding who God is, we submit ourselves to Him and allow Him to transform us. The more we know God, the more readily our prayers will align with His will and we can truly pray, “Thy will be done.” We can approach God in confidence that “if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (1 John 5:14–15).

By faith, we know that praying,
“Thy will be done,”
is the best thing we can ask for.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen” (Ephesians 3:20–21).


Thy Will Be Done

The winds shriek and howl and the waters churn,
But we don’t listen. Will we ever learn?
This wicked world seeks wealth, fame and power,
But God owns this day, and this is His hour.

Our Father in Heaven, we turn to You,
For only You know just what to do.
You are our Father who always cares,
And we come to You humbly, with our prayers.

We pray for the safety of those in harm’s way,
Hold them in Your hands all through these days.
We pray for the peace of those who now fear,
Hold them in Your arms. Let them know You’re near.

We pray for Your blessings on those who give aid,
Hold them on Your paths, never to stray.
We pray for Your guidance to those who lead,
Hold them to Your will and care for their needs.

We pray for ourselves, to find when we seek,
That our walk with You be humble and meek.
We pray for our country, that all turn to You
For guidance and blessings in all that we do.

Although we pray for our safety today,
We know that Your will is the only Way.
We know that our sin hinders Your peace,
But when Your Truth triumphs, then sin will cease.

And though we are destined for war and strife,
We look to our future, for You are our Life.
Safety and peace: it’s for those we plead,
But when all’s said and done, it’s revival we need.

May we turn to You for our joy and peace,
For in our blessed future, they will never cease.
We’re not of this world, and so we pray
For Your coming quickly. May this be the day.

Until that day when You come in the clouds,
May we turn to You in throngs and crowds;
But no matter what happens, the things to come,
We pray above all that Thy will be done.

Amen.

cthulhu

This is a very key concept.

It is impossible for mortals to completely know the mind of God, to know His plans, nor the finer exposition of His will. Accordingly, I tend to pray in constructs like, “if it may be accomplished within Your greater will, I pray that Joe Schmoe survive the cancer that his doctors are treating….”

Were I to just speak from my heart, I fear that I might contradict the deference to God’s will that is repeatedly taught — which would be probably be some form of religious heresy, blasphemy, or tortious interference. Accordingly, I take notes and compose prayers.

It’s my way of showing respect and awe.

pgroup2

And our Heavenly Father knows your heart, and appreciates your efforts.

cthulhu

Even Jesus, in His hour, says at Matt 26:39 “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.”

Then, at Matt 26:42, He says, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.”

If Jesus Himself lays caveats upon His prayers, who am I to not emulate the practice?

Deplorable Patriot

That’s where meditation on God’s will comes in. Open your mind and heart and let Him in. You’ll find out all sorts of stuff.

Valerie Curren

I think presenting your requests before God is always appropriate. Following Christ’s example of “nevertheless not my will but Yours be done” is crucial!

God knows our frame & remembers that we are dust so a sincere(ly wrong) heart is not heresy or blasphemy, imo. Remaining humble & open to Truth & correction is always in order (not that I’m actually personally good at any of that!).

I am amazed at how many reaction videos completely ignore the lyrices of the song they are reacting to. They are not always clear but all too frequently are key to how/why a key phrase or portion of a song is sung in a certain way.

The comments below, which the most novice observer could make, are why I don’t read Red State anymore and haven’t for a long time now. In fact, RS itself shows why I don’t read RS anymore, as I will demonstrate.

First, about the subject of the RS piece.
.

Q: Why is Joe Biden (Obama) concerned with Trump right now? Given all on Biden’s plate, why is Trump a pressing issue for them??

What’s going on here??

As previously discussed here from time to time, charging PDJT with anything is fraught with great risk for our enemies.

Don’t forget…..Trump gets “discovery” if he is charged with anything, and his defense could well turn a prosecution into a conviction of the Jan. 6th coup plotters while exonerating PDJT. Trumps lawyers get to ask for documents and depose witnesses, which would most definitely include the then-sitting Speaker of the House Nasty Piglosi.

In fact, there is a real possibility that PDJT is HOPING they will charge him with something.

Given this, and at this point, I would consider an indictment against Trump an act of desperation. And THAT’s assuming they could get a grand jury to issue an indictment against a former sitting president in the first place, which I do not think is a given by any means.

.

Now, with all that said…

…back to Red State and the author of this piece. I did 5 min. of digging to support my criticism of RS.

Mere days ago, the same author/website posted this re: Biden’s crackhead son….

Suddenly, for no reason whatsoever I’m assured, the liberal news industry, including The New York Times and The Washington Post, decided to “confirm” all the reporting we already knew was true. Further, the Post’s write-up goes so far as to detail some of Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings, specifically regarding the Chinese. That’s quite the about-face.

I’m not going to waste time breaking down this latest reporting because again, none of it is really new. Rather, we should be asking ourselves why the Times, the Post, etc. just walked through the door with a six-pack and their dancing shoes on. Nothing, and I mean nothing that is harmful to a major Democrat gets printed by accident. There is always an underlying reason why a report gets made at the time it does, especially when we are talking about a story that was previously suppressed.

So what’s going on here? 

https://redstate.com/bonchie/2022/03/30/something-big-is-coming-on-hunter-bidens-corrupt-dealings-n543024

.

Hmmm. Interesting question. 🤔

One might ask that very question of RS and the author of this piece, given that they are failing to ask this same question re: rumors of Biden wanting AG Garland to prosecute Trump (as I pointed out above) IN THE SAME WEEK they are asking this SAME question re: leftist media reporting on the crackhead’s laptop.

But that’s just me. YMMV

I’ve been following this. So gratifying. I wish it would spread here. We could use it right now with a modernist bishop who goes along to get along.

Although, he is letting the rector at the Cathedral go far more traditional with generous confession hours, and Communion on the tongue. I do wish they would have more than an hour of Adoration, but in my neck of the woods I can get to it five days of the week if needed.

Really?🤔

Call me crazy, but somehow I think we’ll all survive and muddle through this BS.

What I am not going to do is be afraid of failing globalist agendas.

Btw, and not for nothing, but….govts can’t just command people use whatever fiat they dictate….and digital currency is a fiat. So, yeah, no….all fiat doesn’t “vanish”…..what they are talking about is exchanging one form of fiat (ie. paper) for another (digital).

But ANY form of fiat requires the CONSENT of the people, which is the giant fly swimming in the soup here.

Even if the gov’t said paper dollars are no good anymore, people would still use them….for a long time to come.

This isn’t as easy as Dr. Global is making it out to be.

100% agree.

no one is telling you to be “afraid”….so stop suggesting that.

being informed, however, about what is happening, is absolutely crucial.

situational awareness

the reason I posted that link is for that purpose, along with the concept of blockchain technology.

if you happen to know it all, please just ignore my posts.

this will be phased in, gradually…fiat money will still be used while we can also find alternative ways to avoid this scheme…temporarily…precious metals, bartering, trading etc.

some states will have the backbone to kill this legislation…for a while.

and the globalists know that.

this is the way they will be able to monitor our behavior…as the article explains.

but perhaps you didn’t bother to even read it ?

ESGs are manipulating everybody above us, so I appreciate such alerts. We may ignore them, but they are already changing our lives, and thus I believe “defense by ignoring the danger to prevent mindshare” is ill-advised. That may be somebody else’s tactic, but it’s not mine.

The other side has a plan for us pretending there is no danger. A plan that COUNTS on it.

Reactions to news about what the other side is doing can seem caustic to the messenger – it’s OK – I invite you to double down and bring more, without fear. Awareness is crucial here. Personal attacks on messengers will be dealt with, but “arguing with the piece” is OK, even if emotional – just assume I’m thankful you brought it, no matter how others react. As long as you are not inhibited from bringing the content, it’s OK.

Actual personal attacks for bringing enemy tactics and propaganda into here for my desired attention will be dealt with, just like attacks for bringing in “conspiracy theories”. I want maximum awareness.

pgroup2

I’m aware that leftists = commies = maximum evil.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

That’s a good awareness!

Deplorable Patriot

For those who prefer things spelled out, ESG is:

Environmental

Social

Government

It’s top down meddling using trackable metrics for those with an online footprint, is what I’m seeing.

Any currency using these metrics that doesn’t fall on your foot and at least bruise is fiat by definition. That’s what the Davos crowd looks to be doing: replacing one fiat currency with a different one.

cthulhu

The replacement fiat is more like food stamps. You can buy beans with it, but not beef. Furthermore, TPTB can just cancel it as it sits in your account — just yours, not your neighbor’s; or vice versa.

You won’t be able to earn anything without the government’s steely eye upon your methods — and, if they disapprove, they’ll render your earnings worthless. We can all be Masterpiece Cakeshop’d 24/7/365.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. Thank the Canadian Truckers for that revelation. God Bless those people!!!

Deplorable Patriot

By definition, wouldn’t blockchain BE fiat if it’s not a physical, fall on your foot sort of thing?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes. Blockchain just makes things public, but public things can be controlled. Because it’s digital, it’s automatically fiat, IMO.

Things that are actually worth something, or promises from trusted players which tie worth to those things, are the only things to trust, the former more than the latter.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

FDIC, particularly under Brandon, is meaningless insurance, IMO. The financial authorities have already proven they cannot be trusted.

RUSSIA is more financially trustworthy than Washington, DC. Who would have ever thought that could possibly happen?

PUTIN, for sure.

pgroup2

Putin has already said that the freezing of Russian assets & de-banking not only breaks contracts but also proves that the full faith & credit of the USA is a lie.

I started saying something close to that when GM preferred stockholders got shafted in the ‘sweetheart’ bankruptcy.

Last edited 5 months ago by pgroup2
Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup.

Everybody is just a pesky Canadian trucker to these banksters and DemComs.

In fact, I’m wondering if Putin’s REAL MAIN GOAL was just to kill the dollar while he could – while finishing off the Donbass problem on his own terms.

Killing off the dollar makes even a total failure in Ukraine worth it to Putin, IMO.

pgroup2

Putin started his adult life by moving to East Germany and doing ‘gofer’ work for the Stasi IIRC.

From there he repatriated to Russia and joined the KGB. He was put on ‘everyman’ detail and was supposed to keep an eye on tourists. I’ve seen a pic of him dressed like a tourist talking with Ronald Reagan. [can’t remember if he was POTUS yet]

And now he’s the boss of the biggest land mass in Asia, and has been for over a decade [his time out of office doesn’t count since he was still the boss].

Here’s a stupid question – how did a guy so dumb (according to the war propaganda) do all that? Essentially, our leftists expect us to believe that Biden taking on Putin is a case of Dumb and Dumber.

You heard it here first – now is the time to hoard rubles, yuan, and rupees. Meet your new bosses, nothing like the old bosses.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

“In God We Trust” is a LIE in a Nancy Pelosi Congress!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

The Democrats, the RINOs, the MIC, the banksters, and the globalists all went into the bath-house called “Ukraine”, and Putin simply opened the door and turned on the lights. The orgy of corruption plain for all to see.

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.

Thank you for the lesson today, and the poems.
Many years ago, Yours Truly was devastated from watching my mother pass away after her being in the ICU for two weeks. I finally went to a “grief conference” in Northern Virginia that was put on by a group that claimed to specialize in “grief support.” This “conference” was secular in approach only.
I spent three days at this “grief conference”, along with dozens of other people. The theme of the conference appeared to be, “I deserve to be freed of my grief. I get to be freed of it.”
While it was good, in its own way, to talk in “small group sessions” with others who had lost loved ones and what they were going through — what was not good (in my opinion) were the many times I witnessed an attendee being surrounded by conference “facilitators” and badgered into agreeing to take “individual sessions” to the tune of $900. for a package of three.
By day three, I’d had enough. There were a couple of “facilitators” who were trying to badger me into signing up for “individual sessions.” I left and went back to my home.
I don’t know if this “conference” did much to help me with my grief over losing my mother. Now that I think back on this “conference”, I understand how incredibly short-sighted it is to say, “I deserve” or “I get” thus-and-so.

Dear RDS I’m sorry for the suffering you experienced in the loss of your mother. That is an experience that yet pends for me, losing my parents, & I’m praying that the Lord will continue to renew their youth like the eagles…in His time these things will occur & I hope/pray that no one leaves this life w/ things & relationships undone.

Those of us In Christ can at least look forward to that joyful eternal reunion.

God Bless YOU & continue to heal any of those broken places in your heart & soul

SD rightfully hounds the no bio lab narrative. This has pretty much been chased back to the Wuhan Lab was never called offensive either and we know how that turned out. So do the Ruskies.

Do people really expect the government to tell the truth on any of it?

I’m still not convinced the spokespeople actually really know what is going on.

I ASSUME EVERYTHING the USG says IS A LIE. AN INTENTIONAL LIE.

Whether the spokesman knows it IS a LIE or not, really matters little.

Propaganda:

  • Gonzalo Lira proves without doubt that four different Ukrainian propaganda clips with different actors were all filmed at the exact same location, a ‘battlefield’ with several long destroyed Ukrainian tanks –> Propaganda BTFO (video)
  • Yesterday evening a Ukrainian station showed a video of Ukrainian troops driving through Bucha, north of Kiev, with several ‘dead’ people lying in the street allegedly ‘killed by Russians’. There are two difficulties with these claims:
  • – One of the dead appears to move his arm: video
  • – Bucha was declared ‘completely liberated’ of Russian troops by its mayor on Thursday, March 31. Are we to believe it would take three days for such an ‘incriminating’ video to come out? Or that those ‘dead’ were lying there for three days with no one bothering?
Cuppa Covfefe

The propaganda is flying thick and fast on the YSM/MCM here, talking about war crimes, etc. Our idiotic “defense” ministerin, who has actually managed to be WORSE than von der Leyen; indeed, she probably doesn’t know which end of a rifle or tank goes in front, is recommending that Germany unilaterally shuts off the pipeline(s) coming in…

Biz folks, and non-woke non-sheeple are not amused…

I think that anyone who serves as defense minister/in should have served in some capacity in the military, and know how to handle a gun, indeed, should have served where they were actually at risk of defending their country (i.e. possibly own life on the line).

These armchair warriors just don’t cut it. And they’re terribly dangerous, but not to our enemies………

Hey guys, I’m giving a shout out to my oldest son Nathaniel here who created this cover version of a song & sang 4 parts (mixed by his good friend, BS in the comments) to submit this for a contest. He & his wife & some friends storyboarded & filmed it all then sent it to BS (who’s now in TN) to put the final version together.

Hubby & I had No Idea our son had these specific talents–Enjoy!!!

If you are on youtube please consider giving him an upvote &/or following his AlieNate channel.

Blessings to All!

Nathaniel met BS through working on sound at my husband’s church (my husband got him into that ministry). BS is a University of Michigan graduate & amazing production manager & sound technician. Funny how working in God’s Kingdom can open some interesting doors. N & BS are also avid chess competitors & whiskey & pipe-smoking enthusiasts…Fun AND Freedom in Christ.

Valerie Curren

So I’m slow (today)…What Started???

cthulhu

The Ford truck. All it needed was a vinyl record.

Valerie Curren

Ah yes, thank you! He Might have been faking the car probs for effect though. 😉

As an aside Nathaniel bought that old truck so he could teach himself to drive a stick, to learn how to do some basic car repair, & so the government wasn’t embedded electronically in his transportation. He’s growing up…

By the way, that was my husband’s jack that made it into the video 🙂

cthulhu

All three of those sound like very good reasons. Has he got one of the books for it? (Chilton’s or [er, the other guys, starts with H….])

Valerie Curren

I honestly don’t know. I remember hubby using Chilton’s on many of our previous cars. Now it seems people go online & look up “how-to” videos by guys that Seem to know what they’re doing!

My son Brandon discovered the other day about 2 bolts that could be undone to tilt the engine forward to allow spark plug access on his old car he’s trying to fix up before selling. Up until that info it was assumed the design was so bad on that vehicle you’d have to pull the engine to basically do a tune up–yikes!

Did you ever see my SCUBA reply to you the other day? I do appreciate your many, varied tales! 🙂

cthulhu

The books and the videos are complimentary. One fun bit with the videos is that someone may be injured in one — and that tells you the part where you need to be extra careful and perhaps wear gloves.

Brandon ain’t crazy — there were several engines in the late 70’s where you had to do crazy things like pull a tire to change a spark plug.

I don’t know if I caught the particular SCUBA reference. I’ll look in a bit, but it’d be nice if you could link.

Damaged pride and vulnerable
All my fears are open now
Never thought this would hit me so hard

Staring at my hollow phone
Not sure if you’re coming home
Bed still smells like I’m not all alone again

I know we fucked it up this time
We got so high
Couldn’t see the bottom

I just crashed my car
And it got me thinking of you
So I just thought I’d call
To tell you, to tell you I, to tell you I still love you

My mental image impaired
Undid the braids in my hair
I rain destruction in the fight of my inner feels

Remove the tricks of the trade
You’re just alone on the stage
There’s no witness fly your soul through the windshield

Damaged pride and vulnerable
All my fears are open now
Never thought I could hurt you so hard
Staring at my hollow phone
Wondering if you’ve found your home
Feel like I deserve to die alone again

We really fucked it up this time
Got so low
Only for a second

Take a sip from the drain
The flavor tastes like nothing
Or nothing tastes the same cause nothing is never there

I know what I’m talkin bout
I believe the words in my mouth
Cause I can say that it was all just a metaphor

In my heart and in my own mind in my soul I know that they ain’t never gonna break me

You know that I wont stop
I’m coming back on top
Don’t call that it’s a flop
I got the refs on lock

BOOM! Part of Pfizer’s 75 year ploy was the fact that they knew the vaccines had an ADE problem.

Breaking: Recently Unredacted Documents Prove Pfizer & FDA Knew Antibody-Dependent Enhancement Occurring in Vaccinated

by Jamie White
April 3rd 2022, 1:32 pm

New unredacted trove of documents reveal ADE cases were documented by Pfizer and the FDA but they tried concealing those shocking figures for decades.

https://www.infowars.com/posts/internal-documents-prove-pfizer-fda-knew-antibody-dependent-enhancement-occurring-in-vaccinated/

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released another batch of internal Pfizer documents under court order showing even more evidence that Pfizer and the FDA knew of the antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) phenomenon and tried to cover it up.

The trove of 11,000+ pages of documents, released on April 1, reveal both agencies knew that vaccine-induced ADE was occurring and worked to cover it up by claiming “no new safety issues have been raised.”

The next batch of Pfizer vaccine documents from the FDA has been produced (11,043 pages), as well as an unredacted version of the post-marketing experience report, available at https://t.co/BzkKyrnK5U or https://t.co/vT3d5OMGlC

— Aaron Siri (@AaronSiriSG) April 1, 2022

ADE occurs after the mRNA vaccine primes the immune system for a potentially deadly overreaction.
Numerous Vaccine-Associated Enhanced Disease (VAED) cases were outlined in Pfizer’s post-marketing experience report that’s just been unredacted:

Russia requested a meeting of the UN Security Council for Monday, April 4, in connection with the “blatant provocation of Ukrainian radicals” in the Ukrainian city of Bucha. This was stated by the Deputy Russian Chairman at the organization Dmitry Polyansky.

“In light of the blatant provocation of Ukrainian radicals in Bucha, Russia demanded the convening of a meeting of the UN Security Council on the afternoon of Monday, April 4. We will bring the arrogant Ukrainian provocateurs and their Western patrons to clean water,” Polyansky wrote on Telegram.

On April 3, the Russian Defense Ministry denied accusations by the Kiev regime of allegedly killing civilians in Bucha.

Moscow recalled that the mayor of Bucha, Anatoly Fedoruk, on March 31 in his video message confirmed that there was no Russian military in the city, moreover, he did not mention any “local residents shot in the streets with their hands tied.”

As the Deputy Speaker of the Federation Council Konstantin Kosachev noted, the spread by the West of a fake about the “murder of civilians” in the Ukrainian Bucha near Kiev makes him an accomplice to provocation.

Yes I hadn’t been there in more than a year, but I wanted to “toot” out my son’s music video so had to tap my “extended” (not) social media connections…

Hope you can work the bugs out. I cannot figure out how to reply to someone in a way that lets me write back to them…c’est la vie!

I DID get in.

My focus IS ONLY to follow Sadie. Not post or otherwise interact.

My online bantering is QTree. Very occasionally Marica’s place. I simply don’t have the extra time for more sites.

Valerie Curren

Nice. Glad it was mission accomplished!

I’m almost exclusively at the Q-Tree, occasionally Marica’s, & will go to Gab mostly to share Q-Tree gems. I guess rare appearances at QV will be like Gab (for me) though much less so.

There is not enough time or energy to be in too many places at once. AND occasionally one’s Real life needs attention 😉

Aubergine

If I recall correctly, Sadie got so trouble from Quodverum about posting the Q Tree list there. They are real assholes about Q.

Valerie Curren

There were definitely a couple people that were huffy about being on the “Q-Tree” list, based on things I just saw in my notifications, sadly. I attempted to reply to one about Not being a Q follower myself & Q-Tree basically being banned CTH peeps. Of course my own tech challenges, or perhaps the age of that message from last year, meant I couldn’t figure out how to actually Write a reply.

I think QV might be a back up to the back up as a way for Q-Treepers to get in touch. Some of the people on the list Sadie put together no longer comment here at the Q-Tree so using QV to try to interface w/ them could be potentially beneficial though.

Sadie Slays

This is correct. Quod Verum banned me over a year ago for mentioning the Q Tree. I cannot access my account there at all, even to delete it. If anyone is expecting me to follow back, then you’re going to be disappointed. I DO NOT RECOMMEND making accounts there.

The Saturday Night Joke

A woman ran a red traffic light and crashed into a man’s car late at night on a deserted intersection. Both of their cars are demolished, but amazingly neither of them was hurt.

After they crawled out of their cars, the woman said; “Wow, just look at our cars!
There’s nothing left, but fortunately we are unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days.”

The man replied, “I agree with you completely. This must be a sign from God!”

The woman continued, “And look at this, here’s another miracle. My car is completely demolished, but my bottle of 75 year old scotch didn’t break. Surely God meant for us to drink this vintage delicacy and celebrate our good fortune.”

Then she handed the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement, opened it, drank half the bottle and then handed it back to the woman. The woman took the bottle, immediately put the cap back on, and handed it back to the man.

The man asks, “Aren’t you having any?”

She replies, “Nah! I think I’ll just wait for the police.”

Here's a wild story. It is from a long time ago but some names might be familiar. In 2010 a contractor accused the FBI of putting a backdoor into OpenBDS.https://t.co/BAnhYK1ySK pic.twitter.com/anqa9PspQn

— Hmmm… (@Hmmm57474203) April 2, 2022

cthulhu

An echo of a shadow of a reflection of a story, sadly.

OpenBSD is a “distro” based on BSD, just like Debian is a “distro” based on Linux. Other BSD distros are FreeBSD, DragonFly BSD, and GhostBSD; other Linux distros are Ubuntu, Fedora, and Arch.

A distro is a “kernel” (BSD, Linux, UNIX….) plus enough stuff for someone to do something with the resulting system. There are distros meant to be nothing but firewalls — Alpine Linux and IPFire — and distros meant as general-purpose desktops.

Collecting all the “stuff” to make a respectable distro means dipping into the world of FOSS (Free and Open Source Software). FOSS developers make software for a variety of personal reasons — they may have corporate backing, they may subsist on donations, they may not need the money and just do things for the glory of doing them, or they may have done something once that they thought was cool and just want to share. Very often, a FOSS project is started when someone is annoyed at a choice being made — and merely takes a copy of what the project looked like before the choice and chooses the alternate. This is known as making a “fork”, as in a “fork in the road”. LibreOffice — which is by far the most popular Office Suite in FOSS — was a fork from OpenOffice, who nobody has heard from in a while. When Debian decided to change their startup software from Sysv to systemd, the entire Debian project got forked to Devuan….which still uses SysV, along with other (NOT SYSTEMD) alternatives.

When a distro is being assembled, there is a certain amount of vetting that is done to ensure rogue packages or packages with security issues are not included. This varies by distro, and by package. Ubuntu, for instance, drives everyone nuts because they regularly recompile packages using compiler flags and toolchains that facilitate their paid tech support servicing corporate clients. Arch, by contrast, does nearly nothing to conform packages, but is quick to run problems back to their sources….

While there is SUPPORT for IPsec within most modern kernels (BSD, Linux….), it is generally implemented in separate packages. Information about IPsec and BSD kernels is here — https://man.openbsd.org/ipsec.4 ; information about IPsec and Linux is here — https://linuxhint.com/how-to-implement-ipsec-in-linux/ .

With all that in our back pocket, let’s look at the fundamental claim of the article: “Perry is now CEO with a VMware services company called GoVirtual, but 10 years ago — when the backdoor code was allegedly added to OpenBSD’s IPsec stack — he was a government contractor working for the FBI, he said.”

Then, let’s look at “a virtual private network (VPN) system used by the U.S. Department of Justice “later proved to have been backdoored by the FBI so that they could recover (potentially) grand jury information from various US Attorney sites across the United States and abroad”.

This combination of claims looks a lot like a burglar who tapes over the doorlatch on a door, then claims to have duplicated the key to the lock. It’s not a flaw in OpenBSD, it’s not a flaw in a unique part of OpenBSD, it’s not a flaw in IPsec — which is used in both BSD and Linux distros. It’s a backdoored VPN system between the left and right hands of the federal government (half of which were probably running Windows).

But it’s very full of buzzwords that can run off all different directions and disappear down rabbit holes.

An echo of a shadow of a reflection of a story.

After Sarah wins the House seat, hope she steps up to Senate.

Sarah got swamped by a temporary arrangement where public money could be used to pursue ethics complaints against the Governor at the time (her), while government money could NOT be used to defend against such complaints, even if they were entirely baseless. If you didn’t have VSGPOTUSDJT-level resources, you were totally screwed.

This was part of the “don’t argue the issue, deplatform the speaker” and “don’t argue policy, defund organizations” ploy.

One of the tragic factors that made Jackson’s Presidency such a high-water mark is that he blamed Washington’s social circles for the death of his much-beloved wife just before he assumed office……and, accordingly, loathed and despised the swamp and its inhabitants with a flaming heart of burning hatred.

I don’t think that Palin’s railroading out of the Alaska governorship, the backstabbing from No-name’s campaign staff, breaking her marriage and attacking her children, bullshit from the media, and political suppression from party by RINOs, among other things…..I don’t think this put her on the same level as Andrew Jackson…..

He said the ship just got off quarantine. Seems ~25% of the crew came down with Covid.

He has a nice spread of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin Eye.
