Dear KAG: 20220524 Open Thread

Cover Image: Summer Vinyard by Nanette Biers.

Popping back in to do the dailies.

Where to start. Let’s see….

Some clean-up from last week:

Yeah, here’s the thing about that…bishops have to resign. Cordileone could be pulled into the Vatican for a different job, but he can’t just be removed.

As for the timing of the whole Pelosi-Holy Eucharist episode (which Pelosi ignored as expected, thus putting her in real danger of being excommunicated which will be played as a political move even if it’s really a pastorally corrective measure), Archbishop Cordileone explains:

“With all that’s going on right now – with Dobbs v. Jackson and the leaked opinion [suggesting] that Roe could be overturned – why make this decision now?” Gloria Purvis asked Cordileone in an interview for America, the magazine of the Jesuits of the United States.

“The leaked decision and the Dobbs case really have nothing to do with the timing of it,” the archbishop responded Friday.

He noted that Pelosi had spoken with him “a couple of times” over the years, but he lamented, “more recently, her advocacy for codifying the Roe decision into federal law—it’s becoming more and more extreme and more and more aggressive.”

“I’ve been trying to speak with her about this,” Cordileone added in the America interview. “I’ve been debating this within my own conscience for many years, actually. So this is not something that has just come up recently. I’ve been discerning this.”

That was reported on American Thinker over the weekend as well.

And…Archbishop Vigano chimed in on the World Health Organization treaty thing:

In the coming days, the Nations that adhere to the World Health Organization (WHO) will vote on resolutions regarding the WHO’s management of pandemics. These resolutions will transfer sovereignty regarding the health of citizens to a supranational body that is largely financed by the pharmaceutical industry and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

If these resolutions are approved by a majority, the WHO will have exclusive international authority in the case of a pandemic to impose all the rules, including quarantines, lockdowns, obligatory vaccinations, and vaccine passports. It should also be borne in mind that this organization enjoys immunity, and thus its members cannot be either tried or convicted if they commit crimes. Unelected technocrats will paradoxically have more power than that which citizens confer on their representatives by means of their democratic vote.

Given that the yielding of sovereignty is considered the crime of high treason by the laws of every nation, and that parliaments may not legislate against the interests of the Nation, much less violate the natural liberties and fundamental rights of the citizens whom they represent, I believe that it will not escape anyone’s notice that this attempt by the WHO to appropriate a power that properly belongs to individual nations is intended to impede any sort of opposition to the “Agenda 2030,” which in the field of healthcare also aims to accomplish the drastic reduction of medical and hospital services, the privatization of the health industry, and disease prevention by means of vaccines.

Oh, my.

Truthfully, the treaty probably doesn’t do that, but the people in positions of power will pretend that it does.

So, Revolver published a fairly long piece which is completely worth the read (okay, it’s pretty important) when it comes to how the left is weaving the disinformation narrative. It covers a lot of the lies and incest when it comes to that, but in truth, one of the more interesting aspects of it is in the financing realm.

In this piece we see reference to the same narratives, election integrity and Covid skepticism, that DiResta previously lumped in with ISIS and terrorism, perpetrated by vaguely defined alleged malefactors like “QAnon boosters” (whatever that is) and, Heaven forfend, “pro-Trump influencers.” DiResta backs up her shocking claim, that misinformation is essentially a right-wing problem, with a Harvard study. Without wasting too much of our time on it, we dug up the specific Harvard study DiResta references.

Immediately we note that the Harvard study DiResta cites in support of her remarkable claim that misinformation is exclusively a right-wing problem is funded by George Soros’ Open Society Institute, among other similar “philanthropic” organizations. 

ALWAYS follow the money.

Breitbart did that, and….

EXCLUSIVE: Bill Gates Poured Millions into Dark Money Fund Attacking Elon Musk

Research exclusively shared with Breitbart News identifies hundreds of millions of dollars flowing from Bill Gates’ foundation to 11 of the 26 organizations that signed an open letter last month urging Twitter advertisers to boycott the company if Elon Musk restores free speech on the platform.

Breitbart News’ report, based on research and analysis from the newly-formed Foundation for Freedom Online (FFO), analyzed public filings to trace hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions from the letter signatories back to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In total, 11 of the 26 anti-Musk organizations received funding from a Gates-backed entity.

The New Venture Fund, which in 2020 received the largest one-year commitment the Gates Foundation had made in more than half a decade, funds four of the signatories:

Two other signatories are tied to Gates Foundation money:

The open letter’s connection to the billionaire Microsoft founder is significant, as Gates is in the middle of a public feud with free speech advocate Musk. Last month, Gates revealed his $500 million short position against Musk-owned Tesla, prompting Musk to call Gates a “b*ner” killer alongside a meme of Gates as a pregnant man emoji.

Meanwhile, in Davos:

Multiple reports claim that the event is poorly attended. Why is a matter of speculation.

How’s this for a headline?

Sussmann Trial Week 2: It Was Hillary, In the Back Room, With the Chardonnay Bottle

The bottle was more likely Bourbon, or Scotch, but, yes,

Does anyone remember a perfect score like this at Rotten Tomatoes?

This weekend’s collection.

Mmm…. My cursive is prettier than that.

Something to remember, always.

Per the boss’s instruction:

I’d throw in a few Rockefellers and Rothschilds also.

Of course, this does not mean committing felonies, but standing up to the forces that want to tear this nation – and humanity apart. The very people XVII told us will be destroyed by the time this movie comes to an end are currently roaming the halls of power…supposedly. It’s a sickening sight.

Your weekly reminder to take the pledge:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

REVELATION 21:1-5

1Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. 2And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; 3and I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; 4he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.” 5And he who sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

PSALMS 95:1-7

1O come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! 2Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise! 3For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods. 4In his hand are the depths of the earth; the heights of the mountains are his also. 5The sea is his, for he made it; for his hands formed the dry land. 6O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the LORD, our Maker! 7For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand. O that today you would hearken to his voice!

JOHN 10:22-30

22It was the feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem; 23it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple, in the portico of Solomon. 24So the Jews gathered round him and said to him, “How long will you keep us in suspense? If you are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 25Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness to me; 26but you do not believe, because you do not belong to my sheep. 27My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me; 28and I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. 29My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. 30I and the Father are one.”

Hi there. Nice to see you again.  😀 

cthulhu

YAY!!!

A DePat visitation!!!!

cthulhu

How are you doing DePat? Did things get better over the weekend?

Barb Meier

I’m happy you are back and it is a great post today. Thanks DePat!!! To survive the Obama years, I cannot count the number of times I had to tell myself: “stay straight and steady.” These are very hard times. A little more action a decade ago and better law enforcement might have side-stepped so many evil things.

Speaking of “Woke Consultants Helping Your Business Go Broke” (the JP Sears video), someone woke at State Farm Insurance decided that donating transgender books for kindergarteners in Florida (GWP) would be a good idea.

Auto insurance company State Farm has partnered with the “GenderCool Project” to supply transgender books for students as young as kindergarten to schools in Florida.

An email from the company to their Florida agents was given to the nonprofit organization Consumers’ Research by a whistleblower.

“This gross and blatant attempt to indoctrinate our children by @StateFarm is shameless and consumers should be aware a company founded on family values is now encouraging five-year-old children to question their gender.

And we have the receipts. pic.twitter.com/UYTWGb5yod

— Will Hild (@WillHild) May 23, 2022

“The project’s goal is to increase representation of LGBTQ+ books and support our communities in having challenging, important and empowering conversations with children age 5+,” the email said.

Will Hide:

.@StateFarm

’s goal was to have “550 agents and employees” nationwide donate a 3-book bundle about Being Transgender, Inclusive and Non-Binary to their “local teacher, community center or library of their choice.”

We’ve obtained screenshots of the books and…it’s bad.

There are other tweets with pages from the books, and then this one:

Think that was the end of it? Sadly, no — the @StateFarm

promoted book encourages 5-year-old children to question their own gender identity and to reconsider their pronouns.

TheseTruths

Here’s the State Farm contact page:
https://apps.statefarm.com/CustomerForms/GeneralContactUsForm.htm

I had to pare down the diatribe I wrote to 500 characters, about a paragraph’s worth.

gil00

State farm, like many 9ld school companies, is riding on the fumes of its origin and original mission statement, bc ceos and boards are made up of people who care about themselves 1st and the business of business in a social way 2nd. The whole idea of responsibility to the company is foreign.

State Farm is no longer supporting GenderCool Project. Customers complained. 💲💲💲

Cuppa Covfefe

Looks like they, erm, bought the farm…

Their words for the day should be “discernment” and “fiduciary responsibility”, not “woke” and “non-binary”.

They need to stew a bit in the juices of their idocy and short-sightedness. Wonder who on their board or in their (mic)management structure put them up to this?

TheseTruths

Excellent! The people have spoken and made a difference, again. That article says it was a “a mid-to-lower level employee” who made the decision. They try to infiltrate everywhere, and we have to stop them.

Barb Meier

If the decider was not “a mid-to-lower level employee” before, they are now.

Jonathan Martin:

The rupture is complete

Pence tells me he’s open to running v Trump in ‘24 – will go “where we’re called” – and heads goes to Ga today to join ranks against Trump’s vengeance tour

Trump spox says Pence is “desperate to chase his lost relevance”

Pence has been targeting Trump over what many Repubs believe are the former prez’s worse impulses:

1/6 (speeches hitting Trump by name)

Charlottesville (Pence went to Heyer memorial)

The ‘22 vengeance tour (today in Ga)

And:

Speaking explicitly about his role on 1/6, Pence told me

“I have been very moved traveling around the country how much people have made a point to express appreciation, it has been very humbling to me.”

🤢 He doesn’t mention that those are Dems and RINOs.

GWP: Never-Trump Leader Opens Rally for Brian Kemp and Turncoat Mike Pence in Georgia — With Only a Couple Hundred Supporters in the Crowd

It should not be a surprise that Never-Trump leader Erick Erickson opened the rally for Kemp and Pence.

Erickson vowed to not vote for Donald Trump in 2016 and vote for Democrats instead.

At the rally,

There were only men spotted in the crowd of a couple hundred.

There has to be big money behind Pence, Kemp, Erickson, etc. They have to know they don’t have the support of the people.

TradeBait2

Does this finally put to an end that Pence was actually doing Trump’s bidding during the collapse of his presidency? That the military was clandestinely working through Pence to take control and to keep the country safe? Or are people going to say Pence is actually out working against Trump to bring down the never-Trumpers? I get confused about the subterfuge.

Same crap as Sessions, Barr, Turtle, McCarthy, etc. etc. They hated Trump, just like Mattis, McMaster, Kelly and most of his appointed cabinet. Most GOP Senators were happy to confirm his picks because they knew the picks would undermine him.

singingsoul1

Couple of months before the 2020 election I do not remember his name but someone was put in charge of the military and he thanked Pence publicly for helping through a difficult period. I thought it to be strange and wondered. I never trusted Pence but I am in good company with that.

Remember also it was Pence who helped staff the WH always wondered if he put his people in.
Pence also had traitors working for him a female doctor and an FBI informant or what it his staffs wife?
Pence double crossed Trump just as Chris Christie did. It was he who recommend Pence.
I think what we are seeing the establishment never accepted Trump envious of him that he did not come through the ranks.
I have some others in mind not saying waiting for that clue but my instincts are hinting another faker.
To much money to be gained to much $$$ after leaving WH. Trump is the only one loosing money while serving and afterwards. Trump is being respected by me more and more other people can have those normal two faced fakers.
Three Presidents I respect JFK, Reagan and Trump the rest everyone can have .

The man thanking Pence was Christopher Miller. He was the acting Sec. of Defense from Nov. 9, 2020 to Jan. 2021.

My personal take on his thanking Pence for working through a “difficult time” was just hyperbole for the difficulty of the period of Trump’s loss and the aftermath. But I could be wrong.

I don’t believe Pence is a good guy. I think he is a religious fanatic, and a slimy politician. But that’s just my opinion.

singingsoul1

Trump had not lost at the time when Miller thanked Pence.
Thank you for remembering his name.
Yes Pence is way off I do not believe he is a religious fanatic he in my opinion he is using his faith for his own gain. I have been around fanatics in a good way they take their faith to the extreme. Pence is a show man of his faith trying to convince others how faithful he is.
True people of faith do not have to go into overdrive they just are ” and we know them by their deeds”.

Cuppa Covfefe

I think Pence is a flaming hypocrite, one who is a good enough counterfeit to fool most, if not all of us, and, sadly, we Christians fell for it.

Looking back, even among my most conservative friends, I have never seen someone say they would not go to lunch where there was a woman, without their wife being present.

That right there was too good to be true. And his rotten fruit(s) have betrayed his disloyalty, dishonesty, and treachery. He didn’t cheat on his wife, as far as we can see, rather he cheated on his friends and colleagues, and on his word and his country.

His word is worth nothing to me now. Just wish I’d seen it earler, though that wouldn’t have helped, probably. Knowing the DC Swamp, it’s not knee-deep in alligators, but eye-level deep in alligators and snakes (if not deeper).

And there’s no worse nor more damaging “testimony” than that of a hypocrite. “Twice as fit for Hell”… (like the song “Alas For You” from “Godspell”)…..

Here it is, kind of odd staging (been a LOOONG time since I saw it). Scribes and Pharisees, indeed…

Actually, Trump HAD lost when Miller thanked Pence. It happened in December of 2020, after the election:

I agree with you about knowing them by their deeds.

Thank you I was wrong as I am often 🙂
You have a good memory 🙂

No, I have a terrible memory, and great search-engine skills! Lol! I looked it up!

Good skills are golden ;0

kalbokalbs

Pence wears his religion, just as Mittens does.

singingsoul1

A pastor told me one time “God help us from the Angels in the church”. He must saying” they create most of the problems”.
My husband reminded me “that the money changers in the temple were religious also so were the Pharisees”.
In another way I should not question anothers faith . Faith is between them and their God.
That is at time hard to do specially when it is so in the face.

CMinTN

I think he hides behind the religious veneer. He wears it like a “beard” to hide something in his closet.

I think we should turn the rail into a post and hang his ass from it.

Without Trump, Pence’s political future was non-existent. Same today as yesterday.

Make him the nominee, and you lose my vote. Period.

Me too 🙂

TheseTruths

Pence is a traitor in the literal sense. He allowed the theft of the election to stand when he had the power to do something. “Never Pence” is not just a slogan.

Aubergine

Agree, 100%.

pgroup2

And justified it by saying that his role was a mere formality.

IOW, a ceremonial position enshrined in the shortest constitution ever written after we had just fought a war for our independence to get away from a ceremonial system of rubber-stamping the boss’s desires.

What a piece of shit he is. If God didn’t love him, he’d have nobody.

Cuppa Covfefe

So Pence wants to go where he’s called (yet more hypocrisy)…

Hey, Pence, Satan on Line 2…..

Both 1/6 and Charlottesville were FBI False Flag OPERATIONS.

On yesterday’s thread, B’fly was noting that it’s my own paranoia that constrains my view of things. If I’d just let twitter and google search through my underwear several times a minute, I could read all the tweets and see all the pics and videos that everyone else does.

So, I recently went into an AT&T store to ask some questions about paperless billing options. I had to wait until their most technical guy was available. First, I apologized for being a bit of a Luddite….

Then we went through how it’s supposed to work in excruciating detail. “You get an email saying it’s available.” “Is that to my AT&T email address, which I never use? Can it be to any given address? Is it always in the same format? Are any other emails sent to this address?”

“There is a button with a link to your most recent statement.” “Is it always the same button, in the same place?”

Thinking about how so many things look like:

…..when you try to work with them.

Told him that my intent would be to devote a specific computer to downloading and archiving these invoices. That I was concerned that they’d effectively be in cleartext except for being on https: . The intended computer would be a Raspberry Pi, and briefly sauntered into the various uses of Raspberry Pi computers for secure setups…..including a little sojourn into Kali on the Pi — and a story about when I was trying out the “map the signals in your local neighborhood” function on my kitchen counter and it kept telling me there was a strong LG signal…..which was odd because it was right above my LG dishwasher, and I was scratching my head about why my dishwasher might be trying to “phone home”…..until I realized that it was a Roberto day, and went out to the hedge and yelled, “QUE TIPO DE CELLPHONE TIENE USTED?” (it was an LG).

Cybersecurity is a complex issue, and no matter how bad you think it is — it’s worse.

pgroup2

Having you explain anything cyber is a punishment for sins far worse than any I’ve committed. Just saying.

For the record, I said nothing about paranoia. I merely asked if the reason you can’t see tweets is by your own choice via computer configuration.

cthulhu

No worries.

But there is a causation thing where paranoia -> computer configuration; Computer configuration + Tweets configuration -> can’t see Tweets.

Twitter could easily make it so that the things I have configured wouldn’t matter, but they instead insist that I configure my computer in what I consider unsafe ways.

Because just one noia is NEVER ENOUGH… 😀

Regarding the cursive thing…..

First, my own cursive looks like I may be having a seizure. My mom’s, by comparison, is perfect.

Second, I had thought that driving a stick might make me immune from carjackings. Then I realized that it would probably be better if it failed after the carjacker had moved some significant distance, because once he recognized how little he knew about driving stick, he might pop out and shoot me in frustration…..since he’d still be RIGHT THERE.

I don’t know if any of you saw info about tornado damage in Gaylord, Michigan the other day. Some damage happened about 1/2 mile from our first house, at the Family History Center at the local Mormon church, where I would occasionally do genealogical research.

My parents’ Cottage is less than 10 miles from where most of the damage was, at least based on pictures we’d seen of known businesses. The power was out in that mostly vacation community but is now restored, as far as we know. Who knows how long clean-up & repair might need in the aftermath of the storm damage.

My husband & I lived in The Cottage for 1 1/2 years after moving to MI from OK around our 6 month anniversary. It’s possible that we might celebrate our 30th anniversary Up North, while staying after this holiday weekend at The Cottage. Our son, the only family member Born in the local hospital though many from my grandparents’ generation in our family died there, had his height put on the wall at 1 day old. We have 4 generations of height changes on the door jambs, 4 different surfaces, between the dining & living room.

When we first moved to The Cottage in the early 90’s we had to get the telephone service re-connected & it took more than a month for they literally had to come & string a phone wire from the pole to our dwelling again. During the years of my grandparent’s lives the phone number at The Cottage was just a couple digits different than my grandma’s sister. There was some type of Major Party Line, that involved different ringing patterns for different residences so that multiple households could pick up the line & listen in on other family’s conversations. I guess everyone had the various rings memorized so they Knew which place was being called. Nothing could be concealed from the extended family clan, related to both my grandparents, who ended up being part of that Summer Cottage community for many decades…

My dad & his sister spent Every Summer of their childhood & youth at The Cottage, which then had not been winterized, with my grandma, Grandpa staying in Detroit to run his gas station. They went North for the Memorial Day Weekend, just after school let out & returned after Labor Day Weekend, in time for school to begin again.

Grandma’s sister, my Great Aunt Bernice, & her son & daughter, also spent Summers at their nearby cottage in a different “resort” community on Otsego Lake. These cousins, nearby friends & then kids who lived in Gaylord year round & some Summer people in a community about a mile North used to live an idyllic summer life. Cookouts, sleep overs on the beach, bonfires, various parties & social gatherings, boating, water skiing, fishing, swimming, exploring, beach combing, picking berries, trading work on the local ski resort (was Sylvan Knob now Treetops) for free horseback riding & so much more!

Boy I wish my summers went like that as a kid! Should the Cottage end being able to stay in the family after my parents head on to their rewards I would hope to host the grandkids for extended Summer stays so that the love of simpler living can be instilled in another generation. Our kids had So Much Fun with their cousins growing up w/ the 3 major Summer holidays Up North. They got used to the slower pace, old school games, campfires, singing, roasting marshmallows, & lots of beach time, especially when old enough to not have to be watched extensively by life-guarding parents.

We have old puzzles, kids books, vintage games no one’s heard of but love to play when there, an old Nintendo game system that gets some hilarious use w/ ridiculous Contra, Football, & Dr. Mario games that engage multi-generations in play time–my brothers & now the kids recall the cheat codes for unlimited lives in Contra! Some kids bring guitars &/or ukuleles & there’s a keyboard that Mom & some of the girls play, singing original creations, silly stuff, & praise & worship songs.

There are old photo albums, formerly slide shows put on by my world-travelling mountaineer & naturalist aunt, & some old cheesy movies recalled fondly by multiple generations. Josiah’s insane autistic stories have become legendary on the “sleeping porch” & days & nights are overflowing with laughter, love, & sometimes frustration. We’ve initiated some ad libbing games in recent trips that have people laughing so hard they practically fall out of their chairs.

I obtained some star charts & guides for viewing the night skies & on clear nights you can see the Milky Way & so many constellations that we city dwellers can almost never see. Sometimes we see the Northern Lights, usually just white or green, though I recall being carried out on my dad’s shoulders to see the multi-colored ones just once! There are binoculars & old bird books to aid in identifying our feathered friends. Hanging laundry on the clothesline & picking lilacs can be highlights for me…& my husband’s steaks & smoked ribs are to die for, we even sometimes share with the neighbors!

I guess I’m looking forward to returning to the Cottage in a few days, a place that’s figured significantly in the lives of 4 generations of my family. With my niece’s daughter to be on this trip we’ll be extending the joy into the 5th generation! Can’t wait for the chaos & creativity to continue…& lots of “caveman culture” tall tales, especially by the menfolk!

Counting my blessings & so thankful to have had this very special place filled with memories & so much laughter & love to escape to.  The reprieve from recent stressors will likely be incalculable for Michael & I, in particular–Thank the Lord!

He’s still putting out videos regularly, and it’s hard to believe they’re deepfakes — but I have to wonder why they ever released him.

He was known to so many people already, before being detained — and everyone knew exactly when it occurred. Destroys their good guy narrative if he’s tortured and thrown in a ditch.

It has been, for a long, looooong time.

Hence the books by Leonard Wibberly, “The Mouse That Roared” and “The Mouse On The Moon” (with the Q-Bomb, no less)…

The massive amount of foreign aid that the US ejected into often hostile areas was a hot topic of discussion in the 1960s and early 1970s, and Vietnam, et. al. was just a tiny bit of it. Seems that the CIA was a “for-profit” Agency even then…

Cain & Abel

comment image

…& this blast from the past examining Abel in a unique way…

https://specialconnections.wordpress.com/2018/09/02/abel-true-father-of-faith/

“Abel, like Jesus, did not have natural human descendants. Yet in the historical Hall of Faith articulated in Hebrews chapter 11 he is the first person God acknowledges & commends for his faith. Abel’s faith led him to sacrifice a Lamb, the firstborn of his flock (per Genesis 4: likely several firstborn of his flock, perhaps from sheep & goats?). Surely this was a foreshadowing of Jesus’ death as “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”

Abel recognized the need for blood sacrifice, a cutting off of an animal that will no longer have natural descendants. Cain’s sacrifice of fruits of the soil (not specifically First fruits) means that he hasn’t actually inconvenienced himself too much. Plants can continue to produce a harvest & while burning up some seeds would reduce his ability to sow his fields he would not be in a position of total devotion (irrevocably giving over something to the Lord, often by total destruction). He can always grow more but Abel’s firstborn of his flock are gone forever, never to reproduce.

This blood sacrifice acknowledges Abel’s awareness of the consequences of his parents’ choice in Eden, to eat the forbidden fruit of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil & thereby visiting upon themselves & all their descendants/mankind original sin & death. God shed the blood of some animals in order to clothe Adam & Eve in their growing awareness of their nakedness, creating the first sacrifice, an act of divine love & protection for His wayward children.

So in a way Abel is foreshadowing the end of all these as foretold in Revelation, when the Lamb of God by whose shed blood all who choose to believe are redeemed, opens the seals of The Book & has “made us unto our God kings and priests”. It’s as if Abel, at the very beginning of the fallen creation by his sacrificial worship, for which he paid the ultimate price of his life at the hand of his murderous, jealous brother, is revealing what is to be the end of all things for the True Believers–being kings & priests to our God (like Melchizedek which really means like Jesus). In a sense Abel is the very first person grafted into the Vine that is Christ Jesus, his faith is like the FirstFruits of All Creation! He is God’s favored & highly prized child & all the faithful who follow are in a sense his spiritual descendants.

Abel’s story & the meaning of his life & death reminds us that the present sufferings are not worthy to be compared with the glory that will be revealed. His blood still cries out to the Lord & his life of faith is still speaking today, per Hebrews 11, if only we have eyes to see, ears to hear, & hearts to understand!

A quick search and I could find a lot of articles saying PDJT was threatening to pull out of the who but only this one that said he had definitely done so, and it’s a foreign source, so could be the only one telling the truth or they’re mistaken IDK.

Aha this may explain the current rush to give sovereignty away to the who…..

“The United States’ notice of withdrawal, effective July 6, 2021, has been submitted to the U.N. secretary general, who is the depository for the W.H.O.,” a senior administration official said on Tuesday.
The departure would take effect sometime next year, should the United States meet established conditions of giving a one-year notice and fulfilling its current financial obligations, Stéphane Dujarric, a spokesman for the secretary general, António Guterres, said on Tuesday.”

One year notice will take us to July this year.

” Against the background of information about the arrival of units in Pavlograd from the territory of Poland, a missile attack was launched on a military facility in the city.

Which object was hit is still unknown. It is likely that the target was precisely the place of concentration of those same armed groups that arrived from Poland.

Pavlograd is the most important transport hub for supplying the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbass.

Roads run from it to Pokrovsk, Kurakhovo and Marinka, as well as towards the Kramatorsk-Slavic agglomeration. The railway goes towards Avdiivka.”

TODAY IN GEORGIA – IT’S PENCE-KEMP vs TRUMP-PERDUE!

And – the media is making this day and this election a test of Trump’s political power and influence.

SD writes – “Factually, albeit many subversively, from Ronna McDaniel to Mike Pence, to Mitch McConnell and every establishment republican who wants to see MAGA crushed in 2020 the same way they crushed the Tea Party in 2012, has been leaning heavily into the Georgia race to support incumbent governor Brian Kemp. In the background of Georgia politics, the democrat operatives have been doing the same.”

MY QUESTION IS – HAS STACY ABRAM-BARACK OBAMA’S ELECTION FRAUD MACHINE BEEN DISMANTLED YET?

IF NOT – the election has already been decided by the number of ballots harvested from elders, disabled, dead voters – the number of fake ballots stored in warehouses, the fake counts made in the dark of the night – and resulting a fake victory for Kemp and evil traitor Pence.

REMEMBER – Pence was in charge of election integrity for the 2020 election and 2020 was the most brazenly fraudulent election in US History – with the media, the courts, including Trump’s SCOTUS nominees, the congress, including President of the Senate, VP Pence, and the Senate Majority leader, even the military, all aiding and abetting the fraud!

AND – We have still have righteous protestors held without trial in DC prisons punished because of the damnable election fraud. Why?

Because the 2020 Election and subsequent disenfranchisement of the American voter WAS THE INSURRECTION – WAS THE COUP D’ETAT – ! BHØ, the community organizer, plus the cabal of DC and state politicians and election officials conspired together to steal the the 2020 election.

Now the same political operatives are trying to make MAGA patriots, conscientious parents, Christians, anyone who dissents against leftist decadence and depravity, into violent terrorists.

What can and will ever be done about it?

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.

the eco system matters, and I don’t care if I sound like a leftie tree-hugger…I am kinda leftie when it comes to preserving natural beauty and the eco systems both of which are being totally & viciously destroyed FOREVER by the GREEDY CORRUPT developers.

then the constant hell of the actual construction…not just a few custom homes…500 new homes just for one massive area alone…multiply that by 10 more massive areas now being flattened for more of the same..

yet another gated HOA prison, walled in, where they come for fun & sun sizzling in their mink oil driving taxes up and creating a nightmare of traffic congestion…and just begging for hurricane disasters…

In the time I lived in So Cal ( 15 yrs) they allowed massive projects from Del Mar to La Jolla, both near the coast and inland. All the while moaning and groaning about water. Developments razed every tree and bush replaced by concrete and a few decorative plants and the prerequisite palm trees.

Now here in SC, the place I bought several years ago In an area that our family has been coming to for 4 generations is seeing the same thing as your area. Sleepy modest havens being pushed out by the trite stereotypical beach houses on stilts packed into lots that previously had a house or mobile on them. The natural woods and wetlands that are the barrier between the ocean are being cut down and filled in so the wannabes can pretend they’re part of coastal communities that thrived for years by fishing and clamming . They come down (typically from the North) here looking at the long timers almost with amusement at times. .

Thank you so much!
IMO, Revelation 21:5 is the fulfillment of Isaiah 43:19.

Just when I think I’ve seen EVERYTHING, leftists come out with something that blows my mind:

“Black Americans who are “tired” of American hostility can relocate to Ghana and be “free from White America’s psychic violence,” according to a recent Washington Post piece that suggests, “Sometimes, leaving is the most powerful form of resistance.”

In an essay published in the Washington Post on Wednesday titled, “For African Americans tired of U.S. hostility, Ghana is still calling,” columnist Karen Attiah begins by citing American civil rights activist W.E.B. DuBois’ move to Ghana in 1961.”

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/05/23/wapo-suggests-african-americans-tired-us-hostility-consider-relocating-ghana/

Isn’t “if they don’t like it, they can go back to Africa” what the white supremacist bigots say?

I am just speechless.

TheseTruths

Yes, incredible. But to them I say, go. Please. Stop tearing down our country and go somewhere else.

Erm, isn’t that what Liberia was for?????

It sure was.

ea, BUT, liberals can say this shit and it IS OK.

For what it matters, regardless of color or whatever, anyone unhappy in America, please DO LEAVE.

This is interesting. Apparently Henry Kissinger spoke at Davos about Ukraine-Russia. Essentially said, the West needs to bully Ukraine into accepting Russia Terms. Not exactly the message the Davos crew was prepared to hear I’d think.

Henry Kissinger: Ukraine must give Russia territory

This yahoo story is open to comments which is also rare. Suggests you don’t use the word “Nazi” but De-nazify will work 😁

Nice surprise, how. much weight does he still pull.

Enough to shock the establishment on both sides of the aisle. But I’m sure stupidity and monied interest will kick right back in. Still great that they get to doubt themselves for a while.

aw jeez…Kissinger again…??

is he senile yet ? still back in The Cold War ?

like anyone should trust Kissinger now…he was sooo helpful during Vietnam…right ? yeah right…

appeasement.

so how much is Putin paying Henry’s consulting firm ?

Kissinger knows what war in Europe looks like. I give him the benefit of doubt. Yes his past has been checker. One can hope that there is still a shred of goodness left.

Nah. $40 billion sent to all the WEF AND globalist assholes.

I think he sees his precious Jazi-backed globalism going over a cliff on Ukraine, and is trying to stop the bleeding by a fast retreat to the fait accompli.

If only someone would have a Corporal Klinger mask and dress in one of his iconic outfits…maybe somebody would get the irony, maybe

One would think that Ramstein had suffered enough… there are those of us who remember that tragedy… I had some colleagues there, who, thank GOD, survived the carnage.

Fire and brimstone raining down almost seems to be next up…

Where do we point curious new-comers to learn about the information war? What topic pretty much incorporates the entire playbook but can be boiled down to a couple of days of learning providing a solid base for further research to help fill in the details?

I have often advised people, with whom I have limited time with for in depth discussion, to do research on Color Revolutions and study past examples and how they were setup and executed.

Next, observe the present world around you applying your new knowledge.

In my humble estimate, The Great Reset is basically a color revolution on a global scale and long underway in the United States…and we are much further along than many of us want to fathom.

I skimmed through the debate from yesterday’s daily about President Trump’s perceived lack of action to help the J6ers in the DC Gulag. Why not just go in there and demand their release immediately? Right? Where is Trump?!

I get it…I feel the anger and frustration too.

However, I agree with TheseTruths’ view that we are much deeper into this war than many of us may realize. What we may perceive as injustice that simply needs a judge, sheriff, or politician to intervene and all is settled…is a false read that would lead right into the cabal trap.

The J6ers are not simply political prisoners being denied a speedy trial…the J6ers are PRISONERS OF WAR…and we are playing by WARTIME RULES.

As I mentioned in a comment that DePat highlighted on Friday…I believe that our side is indeed on the offensive and that will play out in ways that are more indicative of military strategy…instead of civilian law enforcement measures. Except the military operation is camouflaged with a civilian face.

Trump must operate in that realm. Yes…I will say it. 4D Chess. My analysis is not based on loyalty to Trump…I have remained pretty consistent going back to pre-Q era.

I have asked this question many times…now I can define it more narrowly: What would a military operation to Save America from a global color revolution…without triggering a bloody civil war and resulting in the fewest number of casualties possible…look like?

Not an attempt to make excuses for Trump or anybody else…I think we are seeing what such an operation would look like in REAL TIME.

Call it ‘Operation Counter Color Revolution’.

Traditional civilian law enforcement intervention alone is not feasible because that system has long been compromised by the color revolution. Instead, we are seeing a combined effort with a civilian facade.

Sound too incredible? Why? If the cabal can undermine Western democracies with complex multi-faceted strategies planned decades in advance…why is it such a leap to believe that a counter would be anything less impressive? In fact, much more so because the opponent is not restrained by the boundaries of law.

And there is this…Navy SEALS hanging out with President Trump. The same guy being attacked by the current Commander-in-Chief? Who is really in control?

These are just some of the things I see.

You are very welcome! I know there have been times over the past few years where I was lifted by reading your posts and from others as well. That is why I keep coming back here even if I sometimes disappear for a month or two.

Ukraine 2014 was a “color revolution” (the effects of which are being felt even now, and then some) as were the various “-spring” uprisings throughout the Middle (muddled) East.

Satan Sauros has his cloven hooves in all of these, IMHO, through his “openxxx” foundations, various NGOs, and dark money amplified by them…..

Like you say, a “remove color cast” tool would be great. It’s really time to lock ’em all up.
Gotta Catch ‘Em All…….
