DEAR MAGA: TGIF Open Thread 20220520

Did someone say weekend?

Tequila Sunrise

Ingredients

1 1/2 ounces tequila

3/4 cup orange juice 

3/4 ounce grenadine syrup 

Orange slice, for garnish 

High-quality maraschino cherry, such as Luxardo, for garnish 

Directions

  1. In a highball glass filled with ice, pour in the tequila and orange juice. Slowly pour the grenadine into the glass over the back of a spoon or by drizzling it down the side of the glass, allowing it to settle at the bottom. Garnish with an orange slice and maraschino cherry.

Okay, this week:

  • On Thursday, the Senate voted to pass the $40 Billion Ukraine Aid bill during a baby formula shortage. Senator Rand Paul and ten others voted against it.
  • The Biden Administration’s Ministry of Truth is on hiatus after the woman tapped to head the board decided to resign after her past came back to haunt her.
  • As of this writing, Dr. Oz is still ahead in the Pennsylvania senate primary. Without the election system fixed, this week’s primaries saw a mix of wins and losses for President Trump.
  • Elon Musk continues to send arrows at Twitter. This time, he wants to know the percentage of bots operating on the platform, and the powers that be at Twitter aren’t saying.
  • Democratic witnesses testifying before Congress claim that men can get pregnant and abortion at any time is just fine.
  • The United States reopened the embassy in Ukraine.
  • Gasoline prices set a record high while the sock puppet in the White House suspended drilling leases on federal lands.
  • President Trump is said to be writing a new book called, The Crime of the Century.

Of course, there’s a lot more. For a good list of headlines, please see Liz Sheild at American Greatness.

Sundance makes an observation about the censorship issues:

Immediately after the executive meeting with employees, and perhaps in a proactive effort to control any content changes to the platform, the executives then announced a new internal “crisis misinformation” team {LINK}.  Essentially new rules that will give Twitter censors new tools and justifications to block and control content.

[TWITTER] – […]  During moments of crisis, establishing whether something is true or false can be exceptionally challenging. To determine whether claims are misleading, we require verification from multiple credible, publicly available sources, including evidence from conflict monitoring groups, humanitarian organizations, open-source investigators, journalists, and more. 

Conversation moves quickly during periods of crisis, and content from accounts with wide reach are most likely to rack up views and engagement. To reduce potential harm, as soon as we have evidence that a claim may be misleading, we won’t amplify or recommend content that is covered by this policy across Twitter – including in the Home timeline, Search, and Explore. In addition, we will prioritize adding warning notices to highly visible Tweets and Tweets from high profile accounts, such as state-affiliated media accounts, verified, official government accounts.

[…] People on Twitter will be required to click through the warning notice to view the Tweet, and the content won’t be amplified or recommended across the service. In addition, Likes, Retweets, and Shares will be disabled.

[…] Content moderation is more than just leaving up or taking down content, and we’ve expanded the range of actions we may take to ensure they’re proportionate to the severity of the potential harm. We’ve found that not amplifying or recommending certain content, adding context through labels, and in severe cases, disabling engagement with the Tweets, are effective ways to mitigate harm. (read more)

This new approach toward information control at Twitter comes a day after the Dept of Homeland Security (DHS) said they were pausing the “DHS Disinformation Governance Bureau,” and appears to be a private sector effort by the social media platform to maintain the same purpose.

Put together the two actions by the company appear to be: (1) force Elon Musk into a position of purchasing the company at the previously agreed price regardless of the fraud that may be represented in the company financials; and (2) in case Musk goes ahead anyway, put systems in place to block any attempt to restructure the platform.

While this is only one company amid several; this is a battle inside the social media sphere that highlights just how extreme the control mechanisms are, and the entrenched position of Big Tech to avoid any challenge to their stranglehold on information content.

Bottom line is the people controlling big tech do not want the rest of us thinking for ourselves.

Leftist media want to convince you that you’re obsessed with ‘replacement theory’

Do you find it extraordinarily odd that one extremist side of the political spectrum has been driven to distraction with one topic of discussion?  Has everyone taken notice that just one far end of the spectrum can’t stop its fixation with this subject matter?

These are some of the more disturbing examples that show the anti-liberty left has lost the plot: 

That should be enough to make the point.  Anti-liberty leftists and the nation’s socialist media (but we repeat ourselves) have positively gone off the rails in projecting this.  You shouldn’t be surprised, since the Buffalo chumbucket (following the example of the Zelman Partisans) also was obsessed with this issue.

For the pro-freedom right, this is a nonexistent talking point, contrasted with the liberticidal left that can’t stop talking about it.  We aren’t saying much about this, but that doesn’t stop the anti-liberty left from lying and claiming we are.  Even if you haven’t used that particular word, it has a bunch of synonyms that mean the same thing, and failing that, you’ve no doubt used all the letters in “that” word.

Or challenging narratives.

Or proving conspiracy theories true.

What is interesting in that is the number of people who were looking forward to sparing with the Ministry of Truth being disappointed. Bioclandestine had this to say:

Well that didn’t take long. I was kind of looking forward to seeing what challenges they presented to disrupt the spread of information. I was looking forward to the opportunity to prove that We the People would just adapt and outmaneuver them, again.

I should be elated due to their incompetence, but I’m not. In fact, I’m insulted. Billions at their disposal, and this is the best they could muster? The Dems thought they could stop us with a crazy-eyed theater kid… Pathetic.

Their plan was a colossal failure. They accomplished nothing, and managed to severely expose themselves in the process. All the Biden admin did was admit they are Orwellian, Unconstitutional, and Fascist. Which amplified their own malfeasance, helped spread truth and awareness more, and now are stuck with egg on their faces.

And it’s not just us, either.

The thing about the replacement theory, while it has nothing to do with mass shootings, it is an actual thing:

What Great Replacement? Oh, That One!

In an exercise in guilt by nonassociation, Associated Press reporter David Bauder explains in what pretends to be a balanced news story that there is widespread, “right-wing” hate behind the Buffalo shooting. This misfortune, he says, is related to Joe Biden’s decision to open the southern U.S. border to those who may wish to join us in this country. Lots of unkind Americans have questioned allowing millions of illegal aliens to enter the United States and providing them with de facto amnesty, together with government-financed transportation to the interior of the country. Tens of millions of Americans, apparently quite irrationally, view these steps as an attempt to create a permanent Democratic electoral majority.  

For Bauder, such speculation is evidence of widespread bigotry, and he cites Mark Pitcavage of the Anti-Defamation League Center on Extremism about a “mainstream view,” which “baselessly suggests that Democrats are encouraging immigration from Latin America so that like-minded potential voters replace ‘traditional’ Americans.”

Many of those who hold such apparently baseless suspicions also adhere to a “great replacement conspiracy theory,” which argues a concerted effort is underway by American elites to use immigration to replace a predominantly white population with a nonwhite one. The chant by Charlottesville demonstrators in 2017 that white Americans would not be replaced was only the tip of a racist iceberg; and Bauder and Pitcavage link this war against being “replaced” to among others Fox News host Tucker Carlson and U.S. Representative Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.). Both have accused Biden and the Democrats of using illegal immigration to establish a permanent Democratic majority. Stefanik, although depicted as a very centrist Republican, delivered a supposedly frightening tirade last year about how “radical Democrats” were engaged in a “permanent election insurrection” by granting amnesty to undocumented immigrants. Bauder and Pitcavage associate such rhetoric not only with the Buffalo shooting but also with white racist violence in Norway, New Zealand, and the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting in 2018.

Equally dangerous, it would seem, was the book Le Grand Remplacement published by the gay French deconstructionist Renaud Camus in 2011. According to Camus, “Europe was being invaded by Black and brown immigrants from Africa;” and this was creating a cultural and political crisis. Camus, whom we are led to believe published something comparable to the pro-Nazi Turner Diaries, allegedly provided a theoretical foundation for the recent disturbing manifestations of white supremacy ideology that Bauder and Pittcavage see all around us.

Except for the following facts, that Camus published Le Grand Remplacement, that Stefanik did warn (and quite properly so) against the use of illegal immigration as a Democratic electoral tool, and that the Buffalo killer hated blacks, there is nothing in Bauder’s partisan propaganda that is even vaguely true. 

Americans have every right to be steamed over the cynical use of borders kept open to create a permanent Democratic majority. Among the prices being paid for this outrageous, unconstitutional action are the flooding of our country with fentanyl (much of it originating in China) and Central American criminal gangs. The attempt of Biden and his administration and their media drones to link these justified complaints to psychopathic mass murderers (mind you, only the white racist not the black racist ones) has left me livid with rage….

The author of that piece goes on to say that blaming all the shootings on anger concerning replacement theory was part of a strategic plan put in place in June 2021.

There are no coincidences, and they think we are stupid.

Our own JW in Germany posted something yesterday worth repeating about Elon Musk and the Twitter purchase:

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. 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!!!

If JW is right, the whole Twitter takeover may well have been part of THE PLAN from the beginning. We don’t know what we don’t know in that regard.

In pandemic stuff that just might include the monkeypox bug that’s suddenly popped up:

Re THE BIG CLUB, okay the emasculated Republicans who need to eat more red meat:

The PC Direction of the GOP – Contrary to Democratic hysteria, it is only getting more liberal.

The Democrats are forever claiming that the GOP is reverting to a troglodyte past, that they have never seen a “more conservative” party, and so forth. This is all nonsense. The GOP gets more liberal with each passing year. Today’s “conservatism” is little more than a conservation of post-1960s liberalism. As evident in the attacks on Barnette, which came not just from the usual RINOs but also from supposed “conservative Republicans,” the GOP now reaffirms liberalism’s fatuous definitions of bigotry and view of a Judeo-Christian America as inherently indefensible. If liberals had a little more perspective, they would gloat over this development and rejoice at the sight of Sean Hannity and Mark Levin making their arguments for them.

Liberalism has little to fear from a GOP that champions supporters of gay marriage while declaring opponents of it “unelectable.” In the end, the GOP is perfectly comfortable with a de-Christianized America, quibbling not over the substance of liberalism but over the speed of its enactment. The squabbles between Democrats and Republicans grow increasingly trivial. They don’t turn on any deep philosophical disagreements but upon differing prudential judgments. If the burning issue of the day is “Should the teaching of immoral sex education start in high school or elementary school?”, conservatism has already lost.

The GOP’s alleged “culture war” amounts to very little. It is just a delayed and weak response to the most insane cultural conquests of the Left. But it leaves untouched most of liberalism’s gains. Any Republican, no matter how socially liberal, can pose as a sensible defender of “parental rights” next to his mindless and reckless Democratic counterparts. But this is just cynical and opportunistic posturing. Were it not an election year, the PC leadership of the GOP wouldn’t care one whit about the LGBTQ movement’s encroachment upon public schools. Before that issue caught fire, Republican National Committee chair Ronna McDaniel was sending out tweets in praise of “LGBTQ Americans.” So the GOP isn’t even opposed to transgenderism in principle. It just balks at a few of its excesses involving children and athletes because doing so makes for good politics at the moment.

Thanks to the sheer madness of the Democrats, the GOP will enjoy great success this year, even as it grows more philosophically lazy and compromised. Such a GOP will never solve America’s most fundamental problems or arrest its transformation into a secularist dystopia. That would require the recovery of a principled conservatism rooted in the natural moral law. But there’s simply no interest in that anymore in the GOP. At best, it is committed to the kind of superficial and contradictory “conservatism” of a David McCormick, who can sign a gay marriage legal brief at one moment, then call Dr. Oz a “Hollywood liberal” in the next.

More on the cultural aspects of leftist politics in this piece:

If the American Empire Falls, Will the Republic Rise?

If you’re feeling surrounded, don’t.  There are many more of us than them.  The unbelievable major serial failures of the Biden administration (who bats zero?) are waking up a broader slice of the public — waking them up through mounting costs (inflation and energy), uncertainties (crime and the border), and flagrant attempts in schools to sexually debauch our kids (Biden’s handlers support this effort), among other wanton offenses.

The progressive worldview, as translated through governance and cultural dictates, is collapsing.  Progressivism is daily revealing itself as, yes, power-hungry, incompetent, ineffective, but also dark.  The end of empire isn’t likely to finish with a whimper.  It’ll be calamitous, confrontational, and just plain nasty.  The elites won’t go gentle into that good night.  They’ve far too much riding on outcomes.

Let’s see…memes…..

And now for the business portion of the post borrowed from Tuesday:

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out. There is also a “rescue” thread there for members of the Tree to rendezvous if the main site goes kablooey. A third site has been added for site outages of longer duration.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

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

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

And Auntie DePat’s requests:

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

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

JOHN 15:12-17

12“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. 14You are my friends if you do what I command you. 15No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. 17This I command you, to love one another.

Bringing this over from yesterday, about Dr. Oz:

https://citizenfreepress.com/breaking/dr-oz-is-going-to-win-pennsylvania/

On Bannon’s War Room, John Fredericks says Dr. Oz will win, according to the math. With 99% of the votes counted, Oz leads by 1197 votes.
Mail-out ballots postmarked by May 17 haven’t been counted yet. They are breaking even or going to Oz. The earliest mail-in ballots were sent before PDJT endorsed Oz and went for McCormick, but the latter batches that haven’t been counted yet were sent after the endorsement.
900 election day votes are still out in PA. One batch of PA votes came in today, with 200 votes. Of those, Oz got 105 and McCormick got 29. So Oz will probably get an additional 300 votes.
About 7,000 outstanding election day votes in Allegheny County, a McCormick stronghold, haven’t been counted. If the trends hold, McCormick might get 400 or so more votes. Fredericks says there is no path for victory for McCormick and that Oz should win with 900-1000 votes. 
He says there will be a recount, but that those almost never change things. He speaks with confidence. I hope he’s right.

pgroup2

If Oz wins, then the donkeys will beat him to death with clips of his own face saying leftist things. I earlier opined that I thought the dem steal scheme would push Barnette over the top considering her to be the weakest opponent.

That didn’t happen for Barnette but it is happening for Oz. Why are the dems stealing the election for Oz? Because he’s the weakest candidate, not Barnette.

This seat will go to the donkey party. Oz will get destroyed in the general, about 60-40.

cthulhu

To a guy who just had a stroke.

GA/FL

AGREE – Americans are hungering and thirsting to vote for RIGHTEOUS Bible-congruent, Constructive, Economically sound/sane POLICIES – not personalities and promises.

OZ seems to succumb to every leftist low-life theory, ideological and economical scam and scheme – he would likely be another Romney and McCain in DC.

Maybe our girl Barnette, like the young lady from Baltimore, wasn’t ready for the rough big time, but she’s got INTEGRITY AND COURAGE – and would stand up for Righteous Policies – I sure like her.

She’s not quite as tough and brazen as MTG, but more so than Elise Stefanik…

Wonder when Candace Owens is going to run for some office?

Barnette will be back AND do well.

IF Candace decides to run, she’ll be the D-Rat’s worst nightmare AND shred her opponent.

singingsoul1

She was supported by the Club for Growth I heard.

kalbokalbs

She was. Red herring, IMO.

Does NOT equal Barnett supporting Club for Growth. She did NOT, in a couple interviews it was raised with her. NOTHING beyond an acknowledgement. NBFD, IMO.

singingsoul1

Good to know. I am not into the OZ camp do not know enough of him never watched his shows do not do TV. I am fairly ignorant when it comes to OZ or Pennsylvania politics. It is what it is and trust Trump to do the right thing.

kalbokalbs

As do I, trust Trump.

I could never vote for Oz. Simply can’t stand the thought of another Mittens, MStain, Collins…

Likely I’d write in Barnett.

singingsoul1

Yes I know thank god I did not have to make the choice.

mollypitcher5

If there was ever a more Delecto traitoresque type it would be Oz. There wasn’t one thing beyond DJT’s support that he said or that anyone said he said ..nothing at all that gave any validity that he would be a good candidate

Truly baffling.

Better to fight the good fight.

Was Barnett not supported by the Koch brother organization The club for growth ?
She was the splitter and i go with whoever posted yesterday ” that she was encouraged to run”.
I see much more I see that the rinos McConnell types do not want OZ to win because Trump endorsed him.
I am happy we can agree to disagree 🙂
Barnett was set up by skilled Rinos and she got cough up.

Had Barnett enjoyed PDT endorsement, she’d be the CLEAR winner Tuesday evening.

UNFORCED ERROR on Team MAGA.

Maybe I am not sure you could be right 🙂

TheseTruths

I think clips of Oz saying leftist things might attract leftists — although they might not be able to vote for him in the general election. I also don’t think it will matter much when it comes down to someone with an R by their name vs. a D. Repubs who are voting anyway will hold their noses and vote for the R. Plus, he has PDJT’s endorsement. We’ll see.

Aubergine

Bloodbath. I agree. AND worse, Trump endorsed him.

They’d better be damn sure about this “decarbonization” stuff. Sure would be nasty if that’s the OPPOSITE of what we should be doing to preserve life on this planet.

cthulhu

….which, I suspect, it is.

Frankly, we should have been using small safe nukes to cram CO2 and water back into synthetic hydrocarbons and distributing them through pipes like the hydrocarbons that come out of the ground. Since the 50s. Things like thorium reactors (which can’t be dual-use for weaponry, and thus have been suppressed).

Wolf Moon

I just look at the long range trajectory on CO2, and I figure this whole ice-age stuff is a pathological condition in which we’re very lucky to have “woken up” before it was too late.

Ethanol would be relatively simple to make.

It’s not very cost effective compared to pumping goo out of the ground (nukes are not cheap, just clean), but it would solve CO2 buildup in the atmosphere…IF that is actually a problem.

All the aspects of communism are being put in place. One after the other. The revolution is being televised and we’re all watching it. Now the control of food….

 The Secretary of Health and Human Services may use the authority under section 101 of the Act to determine, in consultation with the Secretary of Agriculture and the heads of other executive departments and agencies as appropriate, the proper nationwide priorities and allocation of all ingredients necessary to manufacture infant formula, including controlling the distribution of such materials (including applicable services) in the civilian market, for responding to the shortage of infant formula within the United States.”

We have control over our morality , spirituality , families.
What is important is to be is spiritual strong. One is amazed what we can endure.
Sometimes I think I went through a practice for what is coming. 🙂
My husband thinks he knows but he does not he has been sheltered like so many Americans. Looking back I did not good by sheltering my own kids.
I am going to drag my family through what is coming because I know how to survive with spiritual guidance and steadfastness. This is our 7 years of leanness is coming after 7 years of plenty. We get through this and we do not have to like it. Our values will be reset, simplicity embraced, families valued and realization we are not what we own.,

I’ll be dragging with you, in spirit 🙂

My own family has no idea how hard this is going to get.

Techno Fog: Yesterday (Thursday), James Baker testified that at a meeting in 2016, Sussman told him he was not there on behalf of any client. Isn’t that what this trial is about, whether Sussman lied about that? But I know there is a lot more to it.

Durham team is under attack over that portion of the questioning. Defense says they violated his 5th amendment rights by implying that his testimony was needed.

cthulhu

They’ve got him saying that he wasn’t representing a client when he was to the FBI; then they’ve got the billing records where he said to his employer that he was representing a client. Offense has this as pretty open-and-shut, and a witness trying to throw Sussman a lifeline says, “maybe he could square that circle.”

And Defense is saying this is impermissible pressure to testify?!?!?!?

pgroup2

They put it in a written motion, to boot. Since they know that getting their client off is almost as hard as walking on the surface of the sun, they’ll try anything and everything.

cthulhu

This — https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2022/05/twitter-deal-leaves-elon-musk-with-no-easy-way-out/ — is one of the most hilarious sacks of BS I can recall. I can’t even begin to fisk it, it just starts out so backwards.

Twitter has stated numerous times in investment filings that 95%+ of its “users” are real people. Sarbanes/Oxley made it clear that when Twitter says such a thing, it means that all its executives say such a thing as individuals. If Elon is correct, and at least 25% of Twitters “users” are fake — and the executives get “specific performance” in a court case — he should be able to personally recover any losses from every executive and board member as straightforward “securities fraud”. It boggles the mind why these people would want to walk that plank, especially because Elon can afford it and they can’t.

And, BTW, if all of their public filings have always been fraudulent in this way, everyone who has EVER owned Twitter stock can sue.

To top it off with a cherry, they’re floating this immense s**t sundae at arstechnica, of all places. What, they couldn’t get Chris Wallace to lend some erudite analysis at CNN+ ?

An exquisitely crafted comment.

You absolutely nail the potential legal liability of former execs (read that as big-bodied children playing the “we’re grownups” game while being overpaid).

TradeBait2

^ 100%.

Former clients of mine who were board members of a banking operation wrote large personal checks for the liabilities associated with executive management’s proven misrepresentations. The checks went to a federal agency and to recipients in a class action lawsuit filed by damaged shareholders.

Said clients never served on another board of a company they did not completely control ever again.

Arsetechnica ain’t what they used to be.

Maybe they never were what they used to be…

Shades of unScientific unAmerican, Sky and Scope, Astronomy, and pretty much all of the tecnhical journals: 110% woke…..

The really irritating thing is, I don’t trust them completely at their actual (supposed) fields of expertise, e.g. the Herzstiftung and their magazines, etc., over here. They recommend the clot shot/slab jab to older folk with heart problems, the ones who utterly should NOT get the shot(s)….

Pump up Drosten, Lauterbach, Faust-Xi, BillyGhoul Gates, Schwabbot, Satan Sauros, the Klintoons, Øbløwhøle, the DEMONRATS, the RINOS, and all the rest (Greens, Die Linke, SPD, the FDP, and the CDU/CSU) until they pop… let them get a taste of their own medicine.

Almost all of that will be going back to the DEMONRATS and their “gang(rene) of five”, namely the progeny of Mittens, Piglosi, Heinz, Bye,Dung and that other one, with the “ten percent for the big guy” going to Bye,Dung himself.

Then, of course, the “laundry ticket” (fee) for Zelensky… no tickee, no laundry…

Ukraine is very close to falling; both Donbass (I keep thinking Dumba$$ when I see that) and that steel factory, where people are surrendering by the thousands. There are reports of some VERY high military brass being there (having managed the bioweapons labs) but I’m not sure if that’s been verified yet…

The only ones supporting the AZOV NAZIS and “fighting with them” are the media, and the people who stand to gain from the money laundering and the fake war. There are a number of cheesed-off video game producers who are angry with their “footage” being stolen…

cthulhu

So, I’ve been intentionally mixing several threads about fish. “Fish from Lake T” was easy to blend with “Cichlids”, being that so many of the endemic fish from Lake T are cichlids. “Weird tropical fish worldwide” blends well with “Non-cichlids from Lake T”.

So, for the first release from the Ministry of Fish, let’s go large on cichlids.

Cichlids are a large Family of fish, part of the Clade Percomorpha (perch-like). They are found in warm water in North and South America, Africa, and Asia. There are no native cichlids in Australia, Europe, or Antarctica. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cichlid

Many cichlids have been introduced in inconvenient places, becoming a nuisance. Sometimes, this can be quite surprising — after a hurricane, divers reported finding firemouth cichlids in reefs off the coast of Florida. They had been washed out of breeding ponds in fish farms and seemed to be quite happy in salt water — although it is not known whether they were breeding.

Tilapia have been introduced as a food fish across the far east.

There are native cichlids in Iran, Madagascar, India, and Israel. They get around…..or, rather, they got around — the cichlids in Madagascar and India are more closely related than other groups, suggesting they had a common ancestor when Madagascar and India were conjoined, back around 400 million years ago.

In the old days, one might actually start with Angelfish and Discus — which are, BTW, cichlids of the Amazon basin — and then start branching out into other cichlids of the New World. Nowadays, Rift Lake cichlids are like crack — a powerful intoxicant, with those from Lake T being the most spectacular. Many people skip over the many attractive cichlids of the New World.

cthulhu

There are several groups of “African cichlid” that are not from rift lakes. One group is the “jewel cichlids”. An example pic is —

comment image

These are from central Africa — this fish is from the Congo River basin. As the article notes, however, “Jewel cichlids are neither suited to beginners, nor the usual community tank. Several young specimens may be kept in a spacious aquarium, with stones and wood for cover until a pair forms prior to breeding. Their innate aggression makes them good candidates for keeping in a monospecies aquarium[.]” [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewel_cichlid ]

cthulhu

Another group of African cichlids that is totally unlike anything in the rift lakes is the “kribs”. Again, with a sample picture —

comment image

The fish is Pelvicachromis pulcher — the “kribensis” normally thrown around with this fish is a historical anomaly. The root “pulcher” means “pretty” (possessing physical beauty) and is also found in Neolamprologus pulcher (“daffodil brichardi”). I will always be triggered by this because I botched the word “pulchritudinous” when I took the SAT.

The female (in front) is smaller, but is radiant in a breeding pair. The male is handsome enough, but is clearly meant to provide some muscle.

When I studied the geography of the Carolinas, I was very impressed by the distinct “Atlantic Coastal Plain” that ended at the “fall line”, the first waterfalls that were encountered starting at the ocean and heading upstream. These falls didn’t have to be very large — most were between six inches and five feet — but they marked the end of barges for freight.

As it turns out, West Africa has the same pattern — there is an Atlantic Coastal Plain (this time, to the West), and a fall line. Kribs and krib-like cichlids live at the African fall line.

I’m working on an election film about the cover-up on both sides, Republican as much as Democrat & establishing the ‘Press Club of America’ to preserve the principles/standards of real journalism & provide a foundation for media going forward – fighting for what journalism is meant to be at it’s best. I expect more attacks – big media still desperately clinging to “baseless conspiracy” instead of investigating the fraud, leaving it to people like Mike Lindell to provide funding for our film.

A slightly different cichlid tank —

Discus are cichlids. They do well in soft-water planted tanks with a variety of small barbs and tetras to keep them company. Very different from Rift Lake tanks.

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.

More lies from a DOD propagandist. Bringing to illustrate, however, multiply by dozens within the fake media that dominates normie thinking.

https://breakingdefense.com/2022/05/russian-attempts-to-restock-its-military-may-be-doomed-to-failure/?utm_campaign=BD%20Daily&utm_medium=email&_hsmi=213712149&_hsenc=p2ANqtz-_QkdSvMYBdW9EyQBvKchA22oNe1NhhDDpgdG0cmuqDf7RKzTAriariqAnMazIFIJS5SQR6SG8_ZlG3HmDSPtdUKFiLeg&utm_content=213712149&utm_source=hs_email

Code word “may” in the title. First, they would have no idea about Russia’s actual supply chain for military items with them in a bi-lateral defense pact with China along with BRICS. Second, Russia is not going to use high grade weaponry on a neighbor when the civilian population in the territory they are taking over is hugely sympathetic to Russia. It is unnecessary and would be quite foolish to demonstrate to our military and NATO what they have at their disposal if needed. Strategic and surgical while winning the civilian population over. Unless they are Nazis.

Next…

I’m sure that Indo-Pacific Strategy announcement by CHINA JOE has Xi quaking in his red boots. Released to the public while knowing and admitting, of course, that there is no money in the current budget for military expansion purposes to counter Chinese aggression. That will have to wait until next year’s budget. That extra money this year that they could print up really fast went to protect him and his globalist cronies in Ukraine. Which over 75% of the GOP voted to support.

We have become a freakin’ horrible joke.

pgroup2

So it’s not just “Trump” justices that are the targets of Schumer’s threats?

CMinTN

I would have to guess that if some are getting protection, then all of them probably are.

pgroup2

Gorka’s tweet said 6 GOP appointees. That seems to be more than the ones that Schumer targeted when he spewed his bile [on the steps of the Supreme Court no less] about reaping the whirlwind. I thought that was an intriguing way for Gorka to describe the justices who signed onto the leaked draft. And why would he include Roberts in that group since he is not part of the majority.

Gorka seems to unnecessarily inject politics into his comments. He should get a talk show.

Gross, but really. Viruses which spread from human-to-human through blood are difficult to catch. They only enter the body through cuts or sores exposed to the carrier’s blood.

In Africa, most people who get monkeypox get it from hunting animals most Americans don’t consider to be food, like monkeys. If the person has a cut or sore, the blood from the animal gets in.

The activity that will spread monkeypox in the U.S. is anal sex. Period. Just like AIDS, since there is often “injury” involved in that sort of thing (yuck), blood to blood (or semen to blood) contact spreads the virus.

Don’t want monkeypox? Don’t have anal sex.

Romans 1:16-32: says it all. Seems that perversion ALWAYS ends up as its own “reward”…

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Hi Q-Treepers,

Here’s where things stand on hubby’s DOT CDL-A testing. He passed 2 of the 3 parts of the test–Pre-Trip & Parking Maneuvers. He still needs to pass the Road Test, which is re-scheduled for Saturday afternoon. He hit a curb on the driving test & that, alone, is an auto-fail. He’s not sure if he was marked down on other portions of the test as the testers don’t tell the testees anything about the results.

He’s extremely relieved to not have to keep working on the Parking stuff & is supposed to be getting some more road time today at the school. Hopefully he’ll run All questions & concerns by the driving instructor.

The student testing before Michael yesterday was on his Fifth attempt & we witnessed him hit the curb when returning to the test site so he’ll be making a 6th attempt soon. Apparently only 50% of the students pass Everything on their first try.

With all the audit closures of testing sites throughout Michigan & needs for re-tests for those that don’t pass initially the testing backup is affecting students from all the trucking schools. In my husband’s case he’s been waiting Four Weeks to even get a test & in that Entire time he only was put on the road One Time, for 2 hours behind the wheel, about a week ago. I honestly think the school should have had him driving at least one day every week that he was waiting, but that’s not what happened for him & likely not for many other students. No excuses but that’s just the facts of his personal journey.

He’s run through the gamut of emotions & is Hopeful to pass the driving test on Saturday. It’s truly one day at a time around here…

He’s signed up to play his bass in worship this week at his church so had practice last night. It would be amazing if the school part of his journey is done when he’s playing on Sunday…but either way he’s going to Praise the Lord!

Please keep praying for Michael. This has been a very challenging process & once the schooling part is Finally Over, we’ve still gotta deal with the job search then next month’s transition to grandparenting & the following month’s wedding of our special needs son.

God is helping us get through it All, but None of it is comfortable or easy 🙂

Thanks so much for your prayers & support!

God Bless!!!

2 out of three is great start. Remembers my step brother gave it up after 6 tries and that was over ten years ago now.

Valerie Curren

Oh wow that’s rough for your bro. Yes I do keep reminding him that he will get through…eventually. Hopefully it will wrap up on Saturday, but we’ll have to take it one day at a time.

I agree that getting 2 of 3 is definitely better than 0 or 1 of 3. It also means the re-test is more like an hour rather than the 2 needed yesterday. We don’t know at what point there are extra costs involved but will do what we have to do to get him through…he’s Almost out of the tunnel!

Valerie Curren

Here are some more details, for any who might be interested.

Yesterday’s testing took place in a bowling alley parking lot in Jackson, Michigan. I drove us there & back at hubby’s request. The smaller “town” less congested roads were a plus, the winding more rural roads w/ lots of incline changes were quite different than the flat Metro-Detroit roads that he’s trained on so were more of a challenge, including limited visibility to anticipate what’s ahead.

Saturday’s testing is back in Jackson but at a different test site, a Wal-Mart parking lot–well that’s where he’ll start but others will do the pre-trip & parking maneuvers portion there too. He’ll have to drive himself, for I’m attending a Memorial Service for my mom’s birth cousin, Candi, who recently died after a bout w/ Lou Gehrig’s disease (thanks for those of you who lifted her in prayer). She was a lovely, fiery Christian woman who shared freely about Mom’s birth family history over the years, & recently some great tips on managing Covid, some of which I shared here at the Q-Tree. Mom & I were blessed to interface w/ her & her sister periodically online & at an annual luncheon, which Candi missed a few months back due to her ill health. She really was too young to die, but is surely now celebrating w/ loved ones in Paradise!

After testing we had lunch at a nearby Olive Garden yesterday & the friendliness of the hostesses really revealed that we were outside of Metro Detroit! We had a number of pleasant interactions w/ restaurant staff who were very supportive & thankful for hubby becoming a trucker & expounding on the need for this job in the current climate in our country. It was nice to encounter that more friendly, small-town vibe, which we miss after living in Oklahoma & Northern Michigan previously 🙂

Next weekend, for Memorial Day, our family typically gathers in Northern Michigan at my parents’ Cottage. I usually go earlier & stay later than hubby, since he usually has job responsibilities. This year, assuming he’s passed his CDL, he’s planning to stay after the holiday weekend w/ me Up North for a bit & do some of the job search while we are there. It will be GREAT for him to get away Up North again (he had a special camping weekend w/ our son Josiah & dog Jules a few weeks back) & we are looking forward to some lower key time to regroup & dig into the job search but away from the normal hustle & bustle of our downstate existence.

Please pray that Michael will pass his driving test & get his CDL license in hand before next weekend so that he can enjoy the Holiday & beyond respite our Northern retreat might provide! Blessings to all

When I took the CPA exam, there were four parts in five sessions — an afternoon, a morning and afternoon, and a morning and afternoon. I passed everything in the afternoon and didn’t pass anything in the morning. Being able to concentrate on only two parts allowed me to nail them six months later, at the next exam date.

Being able to re-take on Saturday sounds like unimaginable luxury!

Yes, he just found out another classmate failed a few weeks back & still has to wait to get his second attempt. After all the driving practice & tips today he’s Very Hopeful that he’ll be passing tomorrow. I really hope so too for this re-test is going to cost us nearly $200–yikes!

Glad you passed your CPA the second time through. I’m not much of a morning person either so would likely do better on afternoon testing (or anything) if available!

cthulhu

My last two years of college, I scheduled all my classes to be after 1 pm. This is not a way to ensure passing vital tests in the early morning.

I had a hint early on. I took Engineering Calculus 3A at 11 AM as a freshman, and got the highest grade in my class of 200+ people (and was recruited to go into Mathematician’s Calculus 7B). I took the least worst alternative of of Calculus 3B at 7:30 AM the next quarter, and ended-up taking a NP.

My dad, with a Math undergrad and two Masters in Engineering; and my mom, with a BS and MS in Math, were appalled.

It wasn’t until two decades later that my chronic sleep deprivation was explained.

Valerie Curren

Nice. It seems that biorhythms or internal clocks are “real” to some degree. Ironically I took several jobs as a young adult w/very early hours since I’d rather get paid for time I’d otherwise sleep!

Your parents sound pretty intense…but then look how great you turned out to be!

cthulhu

I could do a long-ish comment on human internal clocks, starting with experiments in caves (it’s just amazing what you can do to grad students and not get arrested).

When I was fully engaged in my relationship with a Computer Science major, I had one quarter where I spent so much time online that my internal clocks got fully disengaged with the sun….and I found myself living 28 hour days with 9 hours of sleep. It seemed very natural to me, except for there only being six days in a week. It didn’t play well with my other classes.

Stanford has been a big leader in research regarding sleep issues, especially those regarding Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Twenty years ago, when I’d finally had it with my entire healthcare universe, I set out to find competent doctors and almost immediately got diagnosed and CPAP’d (with the highest pressure my specialist had ever written a script for). Obamacare has gradually ruined this, so I may be having to do a similar rebuild in the next year.

Growing up with my parents has always been a bit abnormal, but I don’t know if I’d call it intense. As an example, I spent many years as a “latchkey kid” — I’d come home from school and do quiet things around the house until my parents got home from work. About half the time, I’d forget my key — so I became very adept at breaking into my own house. When I did get inside, I’d often watch three o’clock rerun TV like Roy Rogers. Or I’d read.

From this side, I don’t know if I’d go so far as to tout how great I turned out to be. Mostly, I figure that I’ve often amused people.

Well I thoroughly enjoy almost Everything you share around here! You sound like an only child who needed to keep himself occupied & having inherited quite the brain case from both parents found many interesting avenues to explore…& expound upon!

On a completely different note my oldest son’s friend’s uncle suffered a massive heart attack on a scuba dive in the Florida Keys, I believe, very recently. He did Not take the clot shot per his nephew. The weird thing is that another diver died similarly at basically the some location not that long ago.

His uncle’s “heart attack” happened “at depth”, which I thought his nephew said was like at 150 feet. It took a while to get him to the surface & he never regained consciousness even after Many people worked on him.

Seems like a pretty weird “coincidence” hmmm?

cthulhu

The vast majority of recreational SCUBA is at a depth of less than 150 feet — partially because that’s where you really have to plan your dive.

On the other hand, cardiac problems at just 60 feet are a zillion types of bad news.

When things are going right in a dive, it’s almost like sleeping on a waterbed — you are completely supported, no need to move, relaxing, soothing….and then you might decide to kick against the current and snag an anchor line, and it’s easy to overexert without recognizing that you had started to exert at all. It’s why there should be a certain level of physical fitness for each dive.

If this particular dive was like luxuriating in a spa for 10 minutes, then doing a frantic kick to rendezvous the boat for 10 minutes, it could easily rack up a body count — especially if everyone’s diving has been on hold due to COVID for two years.

I’m sorry to hear of your son’s friend’s family’s loss, and sorry to hear of the loss of a fellow diver. May your Faith, and the Faith of the diver’s family, sustain and heal through this loss.

Valerie Curren

Thanks for those insights, Cthulu. The nephew didn’t know if his uncle was “saved” or not. We met this family through our kids’ Christian School, so the friend & his mom (at least) are pretty strong Believers. This was his mom’s only sibling & now with her parents gone she is the only one left of the older generations from that family & it’s weighing pretty heavily on her, as you might imagine…

Of course another factor is night owl versus early bird.

Most people are early birds…which is bad enough. But then a significant fraction of them are sanctimonious turds, who behave as though “night owl” were a moral failing.

I am much more productive after noon than before it. I’m lucky to have a job where they tolerate me not starting work until 9:30 or sometimes even later though I try not to make a habit of that. Of course the early bird in the office who leaves at 2:30 or so hardly ever sees me doing actual work!

cthulhu

The number of early birds v. night owls has historically been difficult to measure, because all the early birds are busy virtue signalling.

I used to sometimes prowl my production floor after everyone had left and leave post-its at each workstation between 5pm and 8pm (when I’d leave). Worked great. Some peeps would get a burr in their saddle about things that needed to happen and could work through the emo part before I arrived the next day.

I bought several bottles of Resveratrol last fall after reading about it as a treatment for smallpox and monkeypox. Anyone weight in on this? There are many articles that include this NIH info.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5698801/

Also, I was always told I was born immune to smallpox. I never got the big vaccination sore – thus no scar. Anyone else have a similar situation?

Aubergine

I have a smallpox scar. Interesting you don’t.

There are food sources of resveratrol. Of them, I eat blueberries and peanut butter every day.

I have a scar. I had to have it twice because i needed an update coming to the US.
Years ago like 57 one needed prof that one had a smallpox shot to get into the country.
Just look now nothing and we wonder why we get strange viruses from underdeveloped countries ?
I know nothing how to tread the disease Dr Zelenko had something some time ago when he predicted next outbreak would be smallpox. He was working on a remedy. I do not know where he is with that since his cancer has returned.

kalbokalbs

Did quick look at Dr Z ZStack site.

Lots of good stuff, but nothing on smallpox. It’s been months since I read Dr Z was looking into the smallpox issue.

Maybe Dr Z will update us soon. (I hope)

I regularly take resveratrol, but more for modulating lipid metabolism rather than any anti-viral reasons. [https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/resveratrol — #2 and #5]

There’s also wikipoo — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resveratrol

For antiviral, I generally rely on C, D, Zinc, Selenium, and Quercetin (lets the Zinc and Selenium in).

Cuppa Covfefe

If you like Brazil nuts, they’re really high in Selenium (to the point that over here it says on the package not to eat too many of them, 5 IIRC). Q-10 (Ubiquinol) is also very good (electron transport chain for mito health/function)…

cthulhu

I take CoQ10 for mitochondrial health, as well — but not as an anti-viral. It’s in the B-Complex and caffeine bunch that tries to keep me active.

Admittedly, a bunch of these overlap.

I poisoned myself on them REAL BAD one time. Ate for dinner and breakfast.
Developed 40 HUMONGOUS welps all over my trunk area. Itch they did, my whole thigh was a giant bruise from rubbing. Burned they did. Couldn’t wear clothes for 2 weeks. Burned myself trying Silvadene cream. Cool baths and Hydrocortisone was the ticket.
Made myself worse, running out of food, started eating eggs and tuna, which are full of MOAR selenium. Almost went to hospital.

I had just read of it being effective against smallpox, and monkeypox. I also take the supplements you referenced.

I got this unwanted, unsolicited fund-raising email from Mike Pence. It makes my blood boil. I’m posting it so we can see what Pence is up to. It’s obvioiusly fund-raising for a presidential run.  😡😡😡

I don’t see any specifics. I see a nod to “federalism.” What does he mean by that? Are we supposed to think of it as “America first”?

First part, from “Lisa”:

[Name],

We have the plan that will guarantee supporters of limited government victory. 

Dozens of conservative leaders across America joined together to work on this plan, including me.

In my work as the CEO of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), we focus on building a network that shares smart policy ideas among state legislators in all 50 states.

We’re dedicated to the principles of limited government, free markets, and federalism — and we make sure that legislators come to their jobs armed with the absolute best solutions to the problems facing our states.

So when Mike Pence asked me to work with him and his team at Advancing American Freedom on crafting the Freedom Agenda, I was eager to help.

Because here’s the thing I think so many politicians get wrong today: It’s not enough to be mad about bad policy — we need to fight back with good ideas. 

The Freedom Agenda does just that.

Not only is it chock full of good policy ideas, built with the collaboration of dozens of conservative leaders… 

… but these ideas are POPULAR. And they are popular because THEY WORK.

With the Freedom Agenda, we can win — and we can actually make our country freer, stronger, and more prosperous.

Now, we just need to get the agenda out there. That’s why I’m asking for your help today.

For just $7, you can help Advancing American Freedom give 10 copies of the Freedom Agenda to conservative grassroots leaders and elected officials across the country. 

I’m including Mike Pence’s email below for more context on the Agenda and Advancing American Freedom. 

If you care about conservative policy victories, you need to read it.

Thank you for your support,

Lisa Nelson

CEO, American Legislative Exchange Council

—— Forwarded Message Below ——-

To: [Name]

Subject Line: JUST LAUNCHED: the Freedom Agenda https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/13.1.0/svg/1f1fa-1f1f8.svg

From: Mike Pence

[Name],

 When will President Biden finally admit failure?

There’s no denying it: His big government socialist policies would destroy America as we know it.  

That’s why I called on dozens of other conservative leaders to work with me to put together a plan to fight Biden’s failures: To save America, we MUST return to the pro-freedom policies of Reagan and Trump.     

[Name], the Freedom Agenda is THE complete plan to push back against the far-left Biden administration, right now. But I need your help to make it happen.

America can be as free and prosperous as ever if we stand firm on the principles that made America the greatest nation in the history of the world. There is no holding back freedom and America’s prosperity if we lean on those ideas outlined in this agenda. 

The organization I founded, Advancing American Freedom, brought our movement’s leaders together to build this plan. And now, we’re ready to fight to make it happen.

We don’t need to wait for a change of leadership in Washington to start building the conservative comeback. 

We’ve got the roadmap right here. 

All we need is YOUR SUPPORT to fuel our efforts. We need to get this in the hands of millions more American patriots

Will you help us save America from Joe Biden’s disastrous policies, [Name]?

Thank you,

Mike Pence

Founder, Advancing American Freedom

He’s also name dropping 45, while fighting against Biden. That sounds good to those who aren’t aware of all the details.
I can see Pastor Jeffress not taking sides.
In a battle between 45 and Pence, there’s no question who the winner is.🤣

I even heard our Magnanimous VSG say a few weeks ago, ‘Pence is a good man’ but …..

Kelly Ann Conway has been a Pence supporter all the while Trump was in WH. She used to work for him.
I never trusted her and always knew she was on his site. She has been elevated by many Trump supporters because she acts well.

pgroup2

Keep in mind what I once told you – she is loyal. She can change her colors depending on the environment. What she does not do [to my knowledge] is switch horses in mid-stream or engage in covert sabotage.

If she signs on with somebody, she sticks it out. That’s the main reason she moves effortlessly among the power players – they all know she can be trusted regardless of her personal views.

Hillary Clinton approved dissemination of Trump-Russian bank allegations to media, campaign manager testifies | Fox News

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook testified Friday that then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton approved the dissemination of materials alleging a covert communications channel between the Trump Organization and Russia’s Alfa Bank to the media, despite campaign officials not being “totally confident” in the legitimacy of the data.

Mook was called to the stand for testimony by Michael Sussmann’s defense Friday.

During cross-examination by government prosecutor Andrew DeFillippis Friday, Mook was asked about the campaign’s understanding of the Alfa Bank allegations against Trump and whether they planned to release the data to the media.

Mook said he was first briefed about the Alfa Bank issue by campaign general counsel Marc Elias, who at the time was a partner at lawfirm Perkins Coie.

Mook testified that he was told that the data had come from “people that had expertise in this sort of matter.”

Mook said the campaign was not totally confident in the legitimacy of the data, but had hoped to give the information to a reporter who could further “run it down” to determine if it was “accurate” or “substantive.”

He also said he discussed whether to give the information to a reporter with senior campaign officials, including campaign chairman John Podesta, senior policy advisor, now White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, and communications director Jennifer Palmieri.

“I discussed it with Hillary as well,” Mook said.

“I don’t remember the substance of the conversation, but notionally, the discussion was, hey, we have this and we want to share it with a reporter,” Mook said.

When pressed on how Clinton responded, Mook testified: “She agreed.”

Sussmann has been charged with making a false statement to the FBI when he told Baker in September 2016, less than two months before the presidential election, that he was not doing work “for any client” when he requested and attended a meeting in which he presented “purported data and ‘white papers’ that allegedly demonstrated a covert communicates channel” between the Trump Organization and Alfa Bank, which has ties to the Kremlin.

Durham’s team alleges Sussmann was, in fact, doing work for two clients: the Hillary Clinton campaign and a technology executive, Rodney Joffe. Following the meeting with Baker, Sussmann billed the Hillary Clinton campaign for his work.

Sussmann has pleaded not guilty to the charge. 

The government moved to admit a tweet from Clinton dated Oct. 31, 2016 as evidence, despite U.S. District Judge Christopher Cooper ruling last month that the court would exclude that tweet as hearsay.
