DEAR MAGA: Open Thread 20220519

We begin with a summation from one of our own:

JW in Germany

JW in GermanyOnlineWolverine May 18, 2022 16:59

Have not had time to go through the comments…but just wanted to share my Q-teenth of May that offered me more Hopium than I think I have ever consumed.

  • Durham takes the stage with opening arguments
  • Scavino posts billiard trick shot with the Q of spades.
  • Was it Trump who reTruthed a meme of the Great MAGA King with a Q behind his left shoulder?
  • I heard that the Truth Social web app came online…still need to confirm
  • The Ministry of Truth is mute.
  • Many other events/signs within the last several days that indicate to me that UltraMAGA is on the offensive and gaining in intensity
  • Again, yesterday was the Q-teenth of May…a beautiful morning on my walk to work and yes…The Birds were Singing their hearts out.
  • My smile literally morphed into involuntarily laughter.

Anyone else care to take a hit off the hopium bong?

There were a number of good things posted on American Thinker on Wednesday regarding the Ministry of Truth. As of noon, they were all moot.

Okay…election stuff:

Well, one Trump endorsement made it through.

Good, but the margin is narrowing. At this rate, it will go to a recount.

The tupelo tree grows thoughout the south. The sixth largest city in Mississippi is named for it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nyssa_sylvatica

But what it’s really known for is tupelo honey — bees just go nuts for the tree and it produces immense amounts of honey — https://arbordayblog.org/treeoftheweek/black-tupelo-tree-bees/

GA/FL

Tupelo honey is highly prized here and folks selling it on the sides of the road stop traffic and sell out fast. I’ve tried it – but my all-time long-time favorite wild honey is gallberry honey. Guess it’s because it’s what I grew up with. Zeigler near Valdosta GA and Thomas honey out of Live Oak FL are my favorite local sources for gallberry honey.

We also used to get Orange Blossom Honey out of FL – which has a unique strong flavor. I’m not in love with it.

Clover honey is sold in our local grocery chain, Publix. It’s kind of blah.

I mostly use honey in tea nowadays, with a squeeze of lemon juice to combat cold and other viruses.

You are fortunate indeed GA/FLA !
While listening to this Van Morrison tune last night (One of my favorite artists)
As I often do while listen to music..I did a Tupelo honey search, which led to the origination of it’s source. The Black Tupelo Gum Tree,’Nyssa-sylvatica’
This variety tree thrives in your backyard,.. the Chattahoochee river basin in it’s rich sandy silty well drained soil and climate.
From: https://arbordayblog.org/treeoftheweek/black-tupelo-tree-bees/

I’m going to keep my eyes peeled for these locally, I think they are also in our area, May even have a few on the property, I haven’t identified everything yet but Gum trees are plentiful. The berry clusters and slick shiny leaves are the giveaway.  😃 
Already planning a slow quiet Recon in the wooded surrounds today with new found knowledge.  😃

Do you keep bees – have hives?

Chris

Bees? No, too much on my plate.
Too many other things going on.. 😃

Not to be confused with the huluppu tree.

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

The myth of “Inanna and the Huluppu Tree”, found in the preamble to the epic of Gilgamesh, Enkidu, and the Netherworld (ETCSL 1.8.1.4), centers around a young Inanna, not yet stable in her power. It begins with a huluppu tree, which Kramer identifies as possibly a willow, growing on the banks of the river Euphrates.

Quicker access to complete poem.

Clandestine on Elon Musk and Twitter. I don’t know if he’s right, but it’s interesting.
https://bioclandestine.substack.com

Intriguing confirmations about Twitter. Elon estimating the bot activity is 20% or higher, and his $44 billion bid was assuming that the bot activity was at the 5% or lower Twitter formally reported.

He is forcing them to prove their actual bot activity, causing them to expose themselves. While pissing off all of their advertisers and shareholders in the process, for falsifying numbers and therefore significantly lowering the value of Twitter. Elon baited them with $44 billion, knowing full well the bot activity was not what they reported, knowing he could get a better deal, while simultaneously exposing them.

But the most genius aspect of this plan, is as a CITIZEN, he’s exposing Twitter at warp speed, on the world stage. As opposed to a government intervention and a years long investigation with a snail’s pace Justice System. Elon got them on the hook with too much money to refuse, then made them admit all their deepest darkest secrets within a month. The government could never do what Elon is doing at the speed he is doing it.

Most importantly, it appears to be organic. If the US MIL directly intervened, it would be bad optics and the left-wing media would cause mass turmoil and claim it’s a military coup, so on and so forth. So maybe the US MIL and white hats found a workaround? A path of least resistance.

I cant assume it’s a coincidence that the US MIL’s highest paid contractor is flawlessly carrying out a highly calculated plan, with militaristic precision, that just so happens to dismantle an enemy of the US MIL, at lightning speed, in the middle of a propaganda/information war.

Yes, I’m suggesting the US MIL is utilizing Elon as a proxy/asset to conduct operations as a citizen that the US MIL would not be unable to do from their government position.

The civilian route was exponentially faster, highly effective, appears organic, easy for the public to digest, and the mission is accomplished with relative ease and little resistance.

“Military tactics are like unto water; for water in its natural course runs away from high places and hastens downwards. So in war, the way is to avoid what is strong and to strike at what is weak. Water shapes its course according to the nature of the ground over which it flows; the soldier works out his victory in relation to the foe whom he is facing. Therefore, just as water retains no constant shape, so in warfare there are no constant conditions.”

-Sun Tzu

I LIKE IT !  😃

Funny, I could use this same argument to bolster my long-running argument that the Twitter rebrand is about trying to stop Truth Social.

he’s exposing Twitter at warp speed

They need people back in the Twitter influence/surveillance sphere ASAP before Truth Social grows out of their control + mid-terms + food shortage(?)/whatever big op they have planned next.

Yes, I’m suggesting the US MIL is utilizing Elon as a proxy/asset to conduct operations as a citizen

Agreed. US Intelligence agencies need people back in their surveillance net of choice + out of Trump’s influence.

appears organic, easy for the public to digest, and the mission is accomplished with relative ease and little resistance.

Slick marketing. It would fail as a slick commercial if it didn’t do these things.

Yep.

That’s the problem we’re facing right now.

Most of these “devolution”/”this is all a movie” theories are so dang nebulous the SAME thing can be used as evidence both for and against them.

Epistemically, they’re worthless theories.

Chris

As an added benefit, what will we learn as a result of un-intended consequences?
Will twitter refuse to disclose full bot activity?
Bigger question.. will SEC allow twitter deal to complete the Musk deal with known or alleged /potential fraud? 
If so, BIG IF, how many other known FRAUDS is the SEC overlooking (covering up) for Wall street? Why? and for how long? ..smoke , 🔥   💣   😁

On top of Covid, they got Monkey Pox and more Flu variants as well.

RDS posted a good analysis/comment about MonkeyPox over at Marica’s yesterday. I have to say, if it originated (so to speak) in Africa, could it be one of BillyGhoul’s “experiments”???

(Not sure if it’s OK to post her comment, it’s here:
https://marica1776.wordpress.com/2022/05/18/ultra-maga-open-wednesday-5-18-2022-oops/comment-page-2/#comment-877279 )

Thanks, Cuppa. She posts both places, so it’s most likely OK. However, you can just post the link.

Cuppa Covfefe

It’s well worth reading, so here goes (man, how I would like to make BillyGhoul Gates take some of his own medicine 😡 )

RDS:

OK, monkeypox is similar to SMALLPOX.

The Massachusetts case is in a person who just came back from CANADA.

This means that monkeypox IS IN CANADA.

CANADA has monkeypox cases most likely from people who traveled to ENGLAND, which has a number of monkeypox cases.

Monkeypox is a disease found in AFRICA.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, “there’s no known treatment for monkeypox, but it usually goes away on its own.”

Unless the monkeypox that’s now in evidence has been “weaponized.”

Recall that BILL GATES was saying not so long ago that “some other virus” might be on the horizon? — and the speculation was smallpox?

But it usually goes away on its own…

So, yet again, BigPharma and the WEFfenSS are ginning up FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) in order to fill their coffers (coffins?) with their 30 BILLION pieces of silver…

It is originating in gay men. Interesting that hiv was from africa in gay men.

Continuing from last night at some distance because the poor girl and her scars were freaking me out (and, BTW — thanks, Wolf, for the “if bloodsucking insects are a problem you may want to skip this” a couple of days ago. They do, and I did.).

I’m personally unhappy with earrings, but there is such enchantment regarding females up close that I can overlook them.

But it reminds me of one of my sister’s college roommates. Through weird bits of synchronicity, my sister ended up with three roommates named Sally (*name changed*) in two years, which naturally lead to a great deal of confusion when trying to figure out what was going on. So, each got a nickname. One was called “Sally, the Nose” because she’d walk into an otherwise empty space, wrinkle her nose, and ask, “were they eating omelets in here?”

She was generally accurate, but it lead you to wonder what her life must be like when she could be in a classroom and pick out the half-dozen people who had previously had gym that day.

As things might reasonably progress, I actually met “Sally, the Nose” one time. Besides her side-gig as a bloodhound, about the only other thing I knew about her was that she had significant breast surgery before going to college.

She was a happy, pleasant, high-spirited young lady and I was modestly flirtatious (being about five years older). [One of the things I miss about that time was that people could flirt and compliment each other’s appearance and accomplishments without being such dour and litigious scolds. It was all about wit and flippancy and not about attempted rape and patriarchal domination.]

Anyway, I was trying to wordcraft something in the background about, “I’m sure you were adorable a couple of sizes smaller, though you are certainly noteworthy at present.” Thankfully, I never came close to actually saying something. The surgery reduced them by half and was necessary if she wasn’t to live with a permanent back brace. She hadn’t gone farther at the time because she was afraid that she wouldn’t recognize herself afterward.

I have met someone who really, honest-to-God, needed “top” surgery for reduction. I’m sure it was done responsibly and with care and without the Frankenstein scarring, and left ample material for maternal functions, in equations where i -> n.

Sally had every reason to hate her top and want it completely hacked away, as it was causing her significant distress, but she took a reasoned approach. IIRC, she attended my sister’s wedding, and my sister attended hers.

I don’t think so. Did some clicking around yesterday. Link contains a picture of two female to male models walking shirtless in a fashion show. Scars, though much healed, look the same.

There is this fish frequently seen in all sorts of tanks — including ones with rough customers……

But it doesn’t look very threatening…..

comment image

It’s the clown loach — a scaleless fish from inland waters of Indonesia. You might think they’d be easy prey in a tank full of piscivores. But you’d be wrong.

The very tip of their snout has some tentacle-like growths. And there is one hidden weapon that extends from there to about halfway to the eye — a razor-sharp spine of cartilage on each side of the head. This can go through nets, shipping bags, and the skin of aquarists. It can do phenomenal amounts of damage to fish who think they’ve caught it.

This makes clown loaches a universal companion to aggressive fish. The won’t start none, and nothing that starts trouble with them ever wants a second take.

Incidentally, “A Fish Called Wanda” has the “bad guy” eating fish out of the “good guy’s” aquarium, and supposedly eats his clown loach. All the fishkeepers in the audience go, “NFW” at that scene.

Our little journey to Lake T is going to look into shell-dwellers.

Lake T is an ancient lake, and has been collecting shells of Neothauma snails for literally millions of years. There are places in the lake where stacks of snail shells are thousands of feet deep — large parts of these are anaerobic, too deep to have any digestible food, or have welded themselves into impassible calcium carbonate mazes.

There’s a wikipoo article on the subject, so we’ll drop this in — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_dwellers

We’ll start with something obvious — some of these are among the world’s smallest cichlids. They’re not huge. Nevertheless, some have huge hearts — I’ve seen a Lamp. Ocellatus “gold” travel thirty inches across a tank to nip at an owner performing maintenance. Not bad for a one-inch fish. Feisty.

N. Brevis males tend to be territorial and will bury all the shells in their territory in sand. Again, these are small fish, and their only shovel is their mouth. When one has successfully wooed a particular female brevis cichli-boo, he will excavate a shell for her to show her his eternal devotion. I’m not sure what happens when or if the female brevises realize that their entire subdivision is entirely managed by “Fred.”

From today’s posts, with pic of blue checked tweet…

Anymore so many social media posts from notable people are most likely written by staff not the actual person. That goes for all political types regardless of affiliation.

In this case, this guy is almost 80 yrs old so I really doubt he would think to use a video game for a clip of combat.

Not sure why they posted this today as it’s pretty old news.
Unless the term “synthetic biology methods” has some meaning that hasn’t come up previously…

*******************************

“The Russian Foreign Ministry announced important facts: The employees involved in work with dangerous pathogens in Ukraine were US citizens and had diplomatic immunity. Ukrainian biological laboratories were engaged in activities to enhance the pathogenic properties of plague, anthrax, tularemia, cholera and other deadly diseases using synthetic biology methods.”

The WHO is commiting a power grab (substack.com)

And unless we want a post-democratic world government, we need to stop them

Eva Vlaardingerbroek

May 14

Our rights and national sovereignty are about to be handed over to The World Health Organization (WHO) in an unprecedented way at the next World Health Assembly meeting in Geneva, Switzerland next week. And as always, the MSM is silent as the grave.

Some months ago, the Biden Administration proposed several far-reaching amendments to the 2005 ‘International Health Regulations’ that will be voted on next week. The World Health regulations are an instrument of international law put forward by the WHO and are legally-binding on 196 countries (aka the entire world). The IHR defines countries’ rights and obligations in handling public health events & emergencies, meaning the WHO decides how our respective countries respond in ‘a time of crisis’.

I decided to take a look at the amendments proposed and saw two incredibly visible trends that were hardly surprising.

1. In the case that provisions were added, they always gave the WHO – and in particular General-Director dr. Tedros who’s in China’s pocket – substantial additional powers.

2. In the case that provisions were scrapped, these always regarded safeguards to State Parties’ rights to take their own decisions.

In short: national sovereignty everywhere around the world is under attack by these amendments put forwards by the USA.

…..

If you want more information on that and the other major stake holders that will be in charge over our lives through the ‘WHO pandemic treaty’ please watch my latest appereance on the Mark Steyn Show, where we discussed it in detail:

First 2022 U.S. Case of Monkeypox Confirmed In Massachusetts, Health Officials Say

https://breaking911.com/just-in-first-2022-u-s-case-of-monkeypox-confirmed-in-massachusetts-health-officials-say/

mollypitcher5

hmm that article is chock full of info. Seems that monkey pox is primarily among “men who have sex with men” , it’s not easily transmittable. It’s origin obviously is African, etc, etc
Too bad they don’t care who comes into the USA or what their current health status is.

Aubergine

It’s not easily spread human to human. So the “men with men” sexual contact, which often results in injury (no graphic details from me!) is the primary way humans here would get it. In Africa, it is usually spread by contact with butchering bush animals. They eat a lot of stuff, including monkey, that most Americans wouldn’t touch.

This is another “scare” that, unless the virus has been “monkeyed with,” is not that scary.

Not discounting the idea that it has been weaponized, although it is just as possible that the weaponization is only through the MEDIA not science.

mollypitcher5

ITA.
The media loves stuff like this until the facts emerge and add conjecture that of course it can spread to heterosexuals also.
Once they realize that the first population that likely would get it are our new illegal “migrants” > then into the black community…they would either exploit it for fear porn or shut up about it. The shady 4 AM memo givers will decide the trajectory. .

RDS

Recall that Bill Gates was talking about “the next pandemic” and “the next virus” a few months ago.
Monkeypox, an Orthopoxvirus, is of the genus Poxviridae that includes Smallpox.
IMO, there should be some suspicion that there’s weaponization involved here.
There’s really no known treatment for Monkeypox. One would not be surprised to learn that, say, Pfizer-BioNTech is “working on” a “vaccine” for Monkeypox.

Well, unless it’s been weaponized, it’s not a huge deal. It goes away on its own without treatment.

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.

Such a strange story:

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-politics/putin-smells-glasses-fiona-hill-b2082117.html

…’“I was seated next to him and I thought, ‘Why am I sitting next to him?’, is it because they think I’m ‘M’ like Judi Dench,” said Ms Hill, in reference to the fictional head of Britain’s intelligence service, MI6 .

“I took in the suits, one of the finely tailored suits, the way that the little vein pulses on the left-hand side of his face,”’…

…”“Now, this sounds really bizarre, but I could smell that he was freshly laundered. He wasn’t wearing cologne, but it was almost like he had stepped out of some special preparatory bath or something, into the moment.”’…

What a creep. Fiona Putin Sniffin’ Hill

The fact that we have to slap a “label” like Asperger’s on somebody like Elon Musk just makes me nuts.

People used to just be “who they are.” Nobody expected someone like Elon, whose I.Q. is probably stratospheric, to be socially “normal.” Hell, Einstein couldn’t tie his shoes til he was 12 or something! Now they say he had Asperger’s, too. MAYBE he was just so damned busy thinking of amazing stuff that the minor details of life meant very little?

Nowadays, everybody who is even a tiny bit “different” has to have a label. But does that really help get us anywhere?

Cuppa Covfefe

It’s all part of their “divide and conquer” strategy, which they’re painting as “diversity”.

Obviously, with personalities being different, you’re going to want to label the differences.

The problem is when the differences start being considered abnormal (and bad) in some way.

Right. When I was a kid (and now), I was considered “quirky.” Had “labels” been a thing, I’m fairly certain Asperger’s would have been applied to my socially awkward self.

We ARE winning the culture war, it is just taking some time. Two articles I read today gave me a boost.

“Netflix has canceled several “anti-racist” animated projects aimed at children’s entertainment, Variety reported Tuesday.

In what is reportedly a creative decision, Netflix announced they would not move forward with several children’s entertainment projects including “Antiracist Baby,” based on the baby book by “anti-racist scholar,” Ibram X. Kendi. Netflix has also reportedly pulled the plug on “Stamped: Racism, Antiracism and You,” a documentary inspired by another of Kendi’s books, according to Variety”

AND, even better, DISNEY theme parks fail to make the Top Ten for 2022:

“This doubling down on wokeness has hurt Disney. Gov. Ron DeSantis and the Florida legislature revoked Disney’s special governance legislation, and the company’s stock price has taken a tumble. And now, Disney’s American theme parks failed to make USA Today‘s list of the 10 best theme parks in the country.”

ODD BALL POST.

Looking for insights… Planning to purchase, unimproved acreage, this summer. 

  • I have purchased homes in CA, HI, VA and NV. Understand the process, pitfalls and timing.
  • Have NEVER purchased unimproved land. 
  • Focus is TX, OK and FL. 
  • For Sale By Owner (FSBO) preferred. 

My focus here, what are the major issues, NOT common to purchasing a home

  • Determine zoning, building restrictions, ensure no HOA, covenants for the area, etc.
  • Mineral Rights. Water city/county or well. Sewer city/county or septic. Electric. 
  • Are unimproved land sales, commonly managed a bit by Title Companies? Ensure taxes are paid, no liens, etc. 
  • Verify land boundaries AND physical size.
  • Utility Right Of Way across property AND physical location.
  • Expected time to complete the purchase, from “offer” accepted.  Homes 30-45 days typical. Acreage, days to a few weeks?

Insights and experience appreciated.

barkerjim

Am not knowledgeable on acreage in general, but in Florida would be concerned about sinkholes. There seem to be many of them there, possibly due to underground limestone layers.

kalbokalbs

Had not thought of the sink holes. Believe they are typically on the peninsula. If we go with FL, likely on the panhandle.

Thanks for the thought.

rayzorback

Sounds like you are familiar with the process and on the right track 🙂

You didn’t list Arkansas, but….
I just sold 2.5 acres raw pasture land for 50k.
Rural Corner lot with 2 paved roads.
Property is in the county, Not in any city limits (2A friendly)
15 minutes from nearest real city. 5 minutes from small town.
Growing nice area – new houses around (Not crammed together like a subdivision)

Land had building covenants (2500 sf under roof)
No subdividing parcel until covenants come off
(10 yrs from original purchase unless renewed by adjacent owners)

Mineral rights usually do not convey anymore. (But get them if you can)

City water available (If planned for a dwelling… I might have a water well dug)
Septic – (insure the land perks for septic) 1 acre minimum for septic systems

Electric and Natural Gas available

Land boundaries should be staked out by a registered land surveyor
Also get a plot plan of the land with a legal description (warranty deed)
The plot plan should show any/all easements/rights of ways

Title insurance if financed

Purchase time typical 30-45 days or as agreed upon
Usually handled by the Title Company of your choice:
(also depends on the Title Company’s schedule)
(Title search and survey done, liens and taxes up to date)

Pretty much like a home purchase minus inspections, repairs and insurance.

Hope this helps.

kalbokalbs

Yea, was going to list AR and TN. Time line issues.

Appreciate excellent thoughts above. .

rayzorback

Glad to help

TradeBait2

Similar as Arkansa for TN. Definitely want the survey as rayzorback posted.

If concerned with sinkholes, building site suitability, soil formation and such; hire a soil scientist to do a soil test. They have the mapping and expertise to tell you what to expect on a particular parcel.

kalbokalbs

Thanks. Not real familair with TN. Time permitting it would be mid or eastern TN.

holly08

With the assumption you plan to build….

If not on town water/septic check with the municipality about PERC test requirements.

Ask around to get an idea about how deep other wells are in the area and if they passed water quality tests or required filtration and/or water softening systems.

Check out the zoning/land use regs., and also read some Planning Board minutes and attend a meeting to get an idea about how the Board handles new building project approvals. Will help with a time frame.

Check to see if you need a variance. Can require a public hearing and add months to the process.

kalbokalbs

Thanks Holly. A little more homework in my future.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Actually, make sure you even can get a well permit. Can’t be done any more where I live.

holly08

Why is that?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Apparently, they’re concerned that the aquifer will get depleted quickly if too many people draw from it. They don’t want to grant permits unless the figure the well can work for three hundred years (!).

The aquifers here do not get replenished as fast as we use them; they think the water down there is a hundred thousand years old; hence that it took that long to get there.

I had no idea. Think I will do some reading on the topic. I’m in the Great Lakes Region so there’s plenty of water. Sometimes too much of a good thing.

A fairly common “scam” is that if you’re near the city limits and want a water hookup, you’ll be annexed to the city — and subject to all the other glories of metro living.

rayzorback

Also check out soil composition:
Clay, Rocks, Shale, etc.
Footings in rock cost a lot more.
Clay expands and contracts and could lead to cracking.

kalbokalbs

Yea, those are great points. On my list. Thank you!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

If you’re thinking rural, another thing to consider is how well the soil “percs.” If it’s clay, you’ll have to build your septic field in a special mound (expensive); but if it’s super sandy, it might percolate TOO well and you’ll not be able to build a “cheap” (they aren’t, it’s a relative term) septic system for that reason, too.

kalbokalbs

Yea, perc will be something I don’t gloss over. Thanks.

You’ll want to verify communications (cellphone coverage, land phone coverage, available internet). There are a bunch of stories going around about guys buying lots and finding out that they’re 100 feet from the internet….and the internet company wants to charge them $5K.

Look for environmental contamination (history).

Make sure the neighbors aren’t xenophobic.

How real estate works can vary state-by-state. Review resources like https://oklahoma.gov/orec.html . Some may require the intercession of an attorney.

kalbokalbs

Thanks Cooth. As with many things, Internet could easily be the deal breaker. Cell easy enough to verify. Environmental a biggee for sure.

Some how, over 43 years, zenophobia issues minimal, that we’ve had to deal with. Perhaps ironic, SIL has serious issues in that realm. Must be a reason we have not seen her, brother in decades. (/s) BUT, yes, xenophobia is something we are mindful of AND truly need to factor it, in this purchase also.

The legal stuff will get sorted out. As a seller, I was able to FSBO a home in CA. Hell of a lot of paperwork AND coordination on my part. Title Company had there share as well.

Appreciate your thoughts.

cthulhu

Heh. I wasn’t even thinking racial xenophobia, I was thinking “outsider” xenophobia. The kind that thinks that anyone who hasn’t been there for a decade or two might be a government spy. Neighbors who might be growing things, or distributing things, or distilling things, or belong to unfriendly “churches”.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

sometimes it’s so bad you can be born in some small town, but because your grandparents weren’t, you’re still an outsider.

That is so true. I am living it totally isolated because I was not born here neither my husband. In the past I made friends with people that had German roots. They are dead now. My neighbors husband is from S America and she looks Mexican maybe second or third generation.
They are very nice. The town is stratified and those who think they are somebody are snooty even though they themselves have not achieved but hang on the achievement of their parents.

kalbokalbs

Yea, “outsider” is a real issue, to be aware of.

TheseTruths

That’s a pretty comprehensive list. This might be covered in your first point, but to elaborate a little: You will want to know what entity has jurisdiction over the property. If it is in an extra-territorial jurisdiction, not within a city’s limits, then the county might be in charge of permitting. You will need to know if there are restrictions on sizes and types of trees that can be cleared, as well as any environmental factors like endangered species in the area that could affect your ability to clear the land or the times of year when you would be allowed to clear it.

para59r

Good point, as I remember around the last year before O was leaving office the BLM was at war with Texas and Oklahoma in particular. As important as all that was, it was quickly washed out of the news with current events so have no idea how that war turned out, though I imagine the BLM got their wings clipped from such pursuits when Trump took office and hopefully the States were able to armor up. Meanwhile there was a story in last month or two that might indicate the BLM is back on the war path.

TheseTruths

I know the O admin was at war over streams of water on private property, wanting them to be regulated by the EPA or some such agency. Thank goodness that got shot down. There were other things, too, and they never give up.

para59r

Yes, remembers much of the talk was what constitutes a wet land and what developments can be made under such conditions. Keep in mind the leftists want to turn all these arguments over to the UN making it so that the Sustainable Development Goals become the rule.

I’m thinking a green light to develop and then develop will be required. And any part developed may still get stopped by these clowns not to mention said clowns aren’t afraid to make you tear stuff down and put it back the way you found it or else.

kalbokalbs

Thanks.

cthulhu

If you think through all of your normal continuing expenses, you will need to verify the “rules of the game” for the property you are acquiring. For instance, we pay city taxes for police, fire, paramedics, trash pickup, street maintenance….you may have the county sheriff (where are they?), a volunteer fire department (best pay the dues!), you may have to contract privately with a trash-hauling service or take it to the dump yourself (how much per load?), you have to know who controls the streets in case you want to install a new driveway…..and to know if you’ll get snowplowed.

Essentially, it’s all the things you’d need if you were in a built-out subdivision, but you have to independently source and verify them.

A lot to consider/ ponder there, Taxes, budget, future home size( sqft requirements)
How close do you want neighbors, how far are you willing to travel for groceries?
Home insurance rates can vary depending on how close a fire Dept is, or a fire hydrant, County water available? Ambulance? Police?
A Dr,?.. a ‘good Dr.?, a specialist ? Do cows bother you? Chickens? Chicken farms?Do you want privacy? freedom with space? Are you ready for the culture shock?
That comes with the territory, You are the outsider moving into the ‘locals’ area.

Rule of thumb, unimproved land needs improvement. Proper Rain water drainage management is top of the list. Water drains downhill, Always build on higher ground. Consider the neighbors water drainage issues, stay away from flood zones.
Every building with a roof collects and sheds water, same with driveways and local roads. There are trade-offs everywhere, make a list of what you want/need in a property.
Make a parallel list of what you absolutely DO NOT want. Example may be in the flight path of a major airport, next to the interstate hi-way, maybe a busy rail line.
That’s just off the top of my head.  😃

GWPGood News! Trump Attorney to Go After 51 Intel “Experts” Who Lied About Hunter Biden Laptop from Hell Days Before Election

In October of 2020 – just days before the presidential election – 51 former intelligence officials signed and published a letter that baselessly decried the contents of Hunter’s ‘laptop from hell’ had “all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.”

This was a lie. They all knew it was a lie.

In March, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) introduced a House Resolution that would strip security clearances from dozens of federal intelligence officials who signed on to the letter declaring the infamous Hunter Biden laptop as “Russian disinformation” shortly after it emerged leading up to the rigged 2020 election.

But now Americans may finally see justice served…

The New York Post reported:

The former president has sicced uber-attorney Tim Parlatore on the Dirty 51. On Wednesday, Parlatore launched the first stage of a multi-prong strategy to make those who signed the letter pay for the damage they have wrought to freedom of the press, election integrity and the welfare of the nation.

His goal is to uncover alleged communications between the Dirty 51 and the Biden campaign.

Parlatore began by filing five letters of complaint with the agencies that formerly employed the 51, including the CIA — which counted 43 of its former officials among the group — the National Security Agency, the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Defense.

Each letter complains of “an egregious breach” by former agency employees “that appears to have been overlooked by your agency, as it has gone uninvestigated and certainly unpunished. Specifically, the unauthorized publication and dissemination of an intelligence assessment, purportedly based on classified information, that was used wrongfully to influence the outcome of an election.”

It points out that each of the Dirty 51 was “bound by the lifelong obligation” to submit the letter to their former agencies for pre-publication security review to ensure it didn’t contain classified information, a process that could take several months. The letter then would have been stamped with a disclaimer that the agency was not vouching for its accuracy.

“That would have destroyed the usefulness of the document,” says Parlatore, “plus the process would have delayed it so long, it would not be useful” because the election would have been over.

Natalie Winters, The National Pulse:
U.S. Bioethics Chief, Who Happens to be Fauci’s Wife, Published a New Paper Telling Corporates They Can Ethically ‘Pressure Employees’ And ‘Embarrass Vaccine Resistors.’

The paper comes hot on the heels of a number of white house losses regarding federal worker vaccination and mask mandates.

One snippet:

“There can be social consequences associated with peer communication about vaccination, such as stigma and ostracization of those not vaccinated,” the paper asserts.

“Individuals who choose to make the workplace less safe for others through their vaccine refusal should be able to foresee the possibility of this kind of social consequence,” it continues, appearing to endorse the aforementioned “stigma and ostracization” of individuals unvaccinated against COVID-19.

CS Lewis expounds on the beauty, challenges, & mystery of aging & arrival…

AS ONE OLDSTER TO ANOTHER

Well, yes the old bones ache. There were easier

Beds thirty years back. Sleep, then importunate,

Now with reserve doles out her favours;

Food disagrees; there are draughts in houses.

Headlong, the down night train rushes on with us,

Screams through the stations…how many more? Is it

Time soon to think of taking down one’s

Case from the rack? Are we nearly there now?

Yet neither loss of friends, nor an emptying

Future, nor England tamed and the ruin of

Long-builded hopes thus far have taught my

Obstinate heart a sedate deportment.

Still beauty calls as once in the mazes of

Boyhood. The bird-like soul quivers. Into her

Flash darts of unfulfill’d desire and

Pierce with a bright, unabated anguish.

Armed thus with anguish, joy met us even in

Youth—who forgets? This side of the terminus,

Then, now, and always, thus, and only

Thus, were the doors of delight set open.

I think all Christians would agree with me if I said that though Christianity seems at first to be all about morality, all about duties and rules and guilt and virtue, yet it leads you on, out of all that, into something beyond. One has a glimpse of a country where they do not talk of those things, except perhaps as a joke. Everyone there is filled full with what we should call goodness as a mirror is filled with light. But they do not call it goodness. They do not call it anything. They are not thinking of it. They are too busy looking at the source from which it comes. But this is near the stage where the road passes over the rim of our world. No one’s eyes can see very far beyond that: lots of people’s eyes can see further than mine.

There’s a shocker/s 😉

How did the DOT test go for your husband ?

Valerie Curren

Thanks for asking Molly. He passed 2 of the 3 parts (pre-trip & parking maneuvers) which is a relief. He needs to re-do the road test. At one point he hit a curb on a turn & that alone is an auto fail 🙁 The student testing just before him yesterday was there for his Fifth attempt & we Saw him hit the curb as he turned back in to the test site from his driving portion…so he’s gonna need a 6th attempt. Apparently only 50% of the students pass Everything on their first attempt…sigh…

I just wanted to fill in some thoughts about a theory I touched on yesterday…and it closely aligns with the Revolver News bombshell from yesterday and the BioClandestine post on Telegram, if my memory serves me. BC’s post I did not know about until I heard it read while listening to the X22 Report on my way to work…almost identical thoughts.

I had already written this in a response to another post on Facebook and will simply paste it here.

Just a point before I do…I am not so sure that Prosebiec’s followers were the cause of the Ministry of Truth’s demise…at least not directly. I think the Revolver article is a more plausible cause…perhaps it was posted in the onslaught of tweets.

If this sounds a little loopy and unrefined…I am running on very little sleep. I am one of those weird people that has difficulty sleeping during full moons…especially this one. I think I am part werewolf AAAAHHHOOOOOOOOOO!!! 😀

Anyway……

I wrote the following in a reply to another article posted on Facebook…

Column: Twitter Gained Influence on a Foundation of Lies That Elon Musk Threatens to Uncover

https://www.outkick.com/elon-musk-twitter-bots-veritas/

Good read but I believe missing the bigger picture…deep dive with the Revolver News linked below.
——————————————————–

The Rest of the Story
UltraMAGA Musk Warrior!

(Hat tip to BioClandestine—we seem to be riding the same wave and his post added detail that bolstered the theory that the military wanted a civilian face on the operation…not that of a military coup.)

Let’s see how hard they shadow-ban this post?

Anyone here old enough to remember Paul Harvey? Because if you think this is good…wait until you hear “the rest of the story”. It gets better…MUCH BETTER if you have not already connected the dots!!!

The bombshell that Revolver dropped yesterday caused a shockwave heard round the cabal world! Did you hear about the Ministry of Truth Czar Nina Jankowics suddenly got cold feet yesterday and the WH had to put the program “on hold”?

So how does that connect to Elon buying Twitter? Because Nina has a history with disinformation that has come around to bite her in the ass. She participated in a secret NATO funded (US taxpayer) cabal to subvert Western democracies using disinformation as cover…under the guise of fighting “Russian disinformation”. Where have we heard that before?

Guess what favorite tool was used to manipulate the population in countries like Spain…to influence them to vote for the cabal’s selected puppet?

If you answered Twitter…DING! DING! DING! you are absolutely correct!

How? If normal citizens of a country are the vast majority (95%) users…then the tweets should mirror the vibe of the country at least to some reasonable extent. How can you manipulate an election like that? EXACTLY! YOU CANNOT!!!

The cabal had tweet centers full of computers and an army paid professional bots with multiple accounts each and combined with algorithms to suppress unwanted info and highlight the desired narrative to a point that they could sway public opinion enough to successfully demonize politicians and officials that they do not control…then install their selected puppets.

The organization started up in 2015…then ran like cockroaches and closed shop a couple years later when documents were leaked exposing their dirty deeds. Shows us how corrupt the entire Western media is. Never heard about it did you?

Fast forward to just a month or two ago, Elon Musk wakes up one morning and says,”Hmmm, I am a Free Speech absolutist and I am gonna buy Twitter for $44 billion without asking them about the most valuable part of the company…the users that attract advertisers. Because I do not care about the financial…I care about Free Speech!”

That is the gist of it. Does that sound like a businessman who happens to be the richest man in the world? EXACTLY! Of course not. A typical businessman would want to know every single detail down to the cracks in the floor before doling out $44 BILLION.

Connecting the dots yet?

Why did Musk not ask about the user accounts and bots BEFORE the bid? Because he already knew!

This was a setup folks!

Did you know that Musk is the Department of Defense’s biggest contractor? Neither did I until Kash Patel casually dropped that nuke on the Gutfeld Show a few weeks back. The hair standing up on your arms yet? Well, I have hairy arms. https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/13.1.0/svg/1f60e.svg Ewww sounding like FJB.

So if Musk knew that Twitter was lying about the % of bots…then why make the offer? To rope-a-dope Twitter expose them and buy the company at a lower price? Maybe.

But what if this exposes MUCH MORE than that?

Musk makes the offer and meets very unusual resistance considering the offer making the stock-holders much money. The WH creates a Ministry of Truth and brings in the singing Disinformation Czar Nina Jankowics to censor disinformation for our own protection…Free Speech is dangerous ya know!

So what? Right? Just another weird Swamp Critter. Right? WRONG!

How did Revolver News scoop this story? Secret documents were leaked to them about the disinformation cabal subverting Western democracies.

Guess who’s name pops up in the documents??? You already know. BOOM!!!!! The Singing Disinformation Czar Nina J!!!

The cabal needs to block the purchase of Twitter any way they can because Twitter’s value to them is not financial…it is their bullhorn! Just like Trump blindsided them…they never saw Musk coming!

I absolutely believe that this is a military op to expose the corruption from behind the scenes using a civilian celebrity figure (we have seen that before) to draw the world’s attention without the optics of a military coup!

Follow Musk’s tweets. A couple days ago “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.” YA THINK?! I get goose bumps just thinking about this!

Musk has purposely drawn the attention to himself and with his tweets giving us step-by-step instructions in REAL-TIME on how the cabal destroys its enemies…THIS TIME…in broad daylight!

Does anybody think he is risking this all on his own against such a dangerous organization? Musk even tweeted “If I die of mysterious causes. Nice to know ya!” (paraphrasing in context)

Musk knew everything before he made the bid.

What are the chances that Musk makes a blind offer they cannot publicly refuse without serious trouble with stock-holders…then in warp speed panic the WH cabal scrapes together a counter with a Ministry of Truth lead by none other than a professional disinformation operative working for a secret organization…using none other than Twitter and fake bot propaganda accounts?

All by chance??? You better not say yes.

Remember Musk is the DoD’s biggest contractor. That is right, I’ll say it…3D FRIGGIN’ CHESS!

The cabal is absolutely freaking out…bet on it!!!

Think about it very hard. The Revolver article is an absolute MUST READ! Also read the article linked inside the article explaining Musk’s role in detail.

Drive-by post and sleep. Good night y’all!

I will try to catch up on Deplorable’s great post in the morning. So much great content…especially the beginning. 😂  😂  😂

Gute Nacht… and a blast from the past:

Cuppa Covfefe

The melodic leaps in this tune are similar to those in the first violin part of the Boccherini C Major Cello Quintet Op. 42 No. 2, Third movement, approaching the cadences… Almost a forlorn denouement…

The whole quintet is very moving, and the first cello part, especially in the last movement is quite a bit of fun to play (and challenging, when one does downbow staccati, as opposed to the, cough, easy way out 🙂 )…

(n.b. Downbow staccato is relatively easy on a violin, whereas on a cello it’s much more difficult – Piatigorsky was a master at it)…

Here’s the passage in question (11:57 in, if I goofed it up 🙂 )… also 14:40 (t=880) (the first time through the camera is on the first cellist, while the melody I’m speaking of is in the first violin…)…

This story resonates since I found my mom’s birth family when she was 60 & when we met her cousins they told us we looked like B——‘s–bizarre for us for Mom’s only blood relatives she’d thus far known were her children…

Saturday Mom, Dad, & I will be attending the memorial service for a birth cousin who recently died from Lou Gehrig’s disease. Thankfully she knew the Lord so we won’t sorrow as those who have no hope. I don’t believe that extended (birth) family are all believers, like my family is, so it might be some difficult mourning for some…

Interesting artistic dive into a leftie woman’s mind about many issues today…sigh…

Is everything OK where you are?

Anonymous Conservative makes a really good point about the vaccines:

Health officials in Quebec are investigating more than a dozen cases of suspected monkeypox in Canada, after U.S. and European health officials confirmed rising cases of the rare infectious disease — suggesting a wider outbreak may be happening globally. In Massachusetts, and Spain, and the UK. May be spreading sexually. Scientists are puzzled by how it is spreading when it has not in the past. I almost wonder if Vax-induced immune suppression might be how it is getting into people and spreading. That could be really bad as we might see a whole slew of viruses in the coming decades which would never have gotten a foothold in humans, suddenly get in and begin adapting to our species due to immune suppression from the vax.
