The enemy excels in creating and controlling distractions to keep we the people’s focus off the truth; they attempt to shift our focus away from their wickedness and onto their false narrative by creating staged scenarios that beg for an emotional response.

  • The fight for abortion “rights” create an emotional response for “women’s rights” while ignoring the fact they are murdering children for a satanic agenda.
  • The “war” in Ukraine creates an emotional response that begs for more government intervention while ignoring the true enemies here at home and their plan to destroy our Country from within.
  • The uptick in shootings keep people focused on violence, providing an emotional response that begs for more “gun control” and attempts to disarm we the people.
  • Monkey Pox and COVID keep people focused on fear, providing an emotional reaction that begs for more “government protection” and censorship of any who speak against their fake science.
  • The perpetual cry of “racism” keeps people divided and creates an emotional response that calls for more silencing of the truth through political correctness and social justice.
  • The January 6th “Committee” keeps people blinded and creates an emotional response that keeps people from understanding the 2020 election was stolen from the duly-elected President, Donald Trump.
  • UFO discussions keep people focused on what’s “out there” while keeping people from realizing what’s right before us: The WHO’S plan to strip America of her sovereignty.
  • Food shortages and gas prices keep people fighting to simply survive and creates an emotional response for more governmental assistance and dependence on those who wish us harm.

While [they] are good at creating distractions, knowing their playbook gives us the advantage. Knowing the TRUTH gives us an even greater advantage.

Faith dispels fear.

The enemy keeps attacking, but they’ve forgotten one major thing: God has ALREADY won the war. Satan knows God has already won, but that doesn’t stop him from speaking lies.

Stay focused on the truth. Stay focused on the Gospel.

We are winning the war, or they wouldn’t be trying so hard to change the narrative.

In a sea of disinformation, the truth is our only bulwark against the tactics of the enemy.

Stand strong and keep fighting through the distractions…we’ve already won, but we must continue keeping on!

Just thought I’d throw that in there.

Okay, where are we in the week? Wednesday….

Lou Dobbs interviewed General Flynn about all sorts of things. Unfortunately, it’s an Apple podcast, so here’s a link for those who can access it.

How long is it going to take before that border is sealed?

Looking away from Ukraine for a bit, BioClandestine is moving on to Taiwan.

But most importantly, what is so valuable in Taiwan that would warrant the Biden to engage in direct war with China over an island on their border, when he is in the middle of a proxy war with Russia already?

As we have known for months, China has threatened to do it, Trump said it as well; military action is going to happen in Taiwan. Myself and others talked about this back in February. What’s in Taiwan?

Yup, you guessed it. US funded biological laboratories. Russia and China have both been vocal at the UN about the US global biological network.

Most notably, the Academia Sinica in Taipei. The advisory board chair is American, 3 other board members are American, 1 is German, 1 is Australian, 1 is Swiss, 2 are Japanese and only 1 is Taiwanese. This lab is responsible for a reported lab outbreak of C19 being carried in rodents that infected a lab worker back in Dec, 2021.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10295903/amp/Taiwan-Covid-Virus-leaked-security-lab.html

Keep a sharp eye out for what comes out of Taiwan. If China’s military moves into Taiwan, I GUARANTEE they secure the biolabs and they will look to expose any US biological activity.

The question does remain whether or not western press will cover the whole thing properly.

At this point, a flowchart is needed to keep track of the Durham revelations.

Pelosi needs to read a Catechism. The death penalty, when no other option is available for the safe incarceration of a criminal, is allowed. Catholicism 101.

Oh, yeah all the self proclaimed leaders of the world are hanging out in Switzerland.

Sundance brings this forward about Davos:

It is important to remember the ultimate goal of the ‘climate change’ promotors (World Economic Forum) is not an energy system that changes the global climate. The goal of the ‘climate change’ group is to create a carbon trading system; a new financial mechanism (a global tax program) to control human activity on a world-wide basis.  This system also needs a digital identity in order to work {hint-hint}.

You cannot tax, or trade, things you cannot track.  As a result, there was always going to be a need for an individual tracking and monitoring system that would connect to the global digital identity and determine the carbon footprint.  The carbon taxing and trading system will be more financially lucrative than any stock exchange or monetary banking system.  It is the ultimate human control mechanism, and the preferred way to redistribute wealth under the guise of global equity.

Listen to a Canadian diplomat talk about this:

When I took chemistry, carbon was considered the building block of life. Of course, this was back in the 80s before the term “Ozone Layer” was part of the national vocabulary.

We all know what is going on.

Shh! That’s supposed to be memory holed.

Is bi-partisanship dead if it really was a thing to begin with?

America is Regressing into a Tribal Society Rife with Acrimony, Anxiety and Suspicion

For nearly five decades, while the Republican Party and establishment conservatives reveled in their “civility” and “bipartisanship,” an increasingly socialist/Marxist Democrat party, media/entertainment complex, and education establishment has been conditioning two-plus generations of Americans to look to the federal government as the source of salvation, opportunity and rescue in times of difficulty.  This has created an ever-growing mal-educated, susceptible and easily exploited segment of the citizenry that by the turn of the Twenty-First Century was large enough to impact the governance of the nation.

The next step was to inculcate guilt and societal animosity in what was once a tolerant multiracial nation that had overcome its past.  Their success is undeniable as they have successfully manipulated and alienated the Black and minority populations by demonizing and scapegoating the white population….

After decades of improving race relations, America is rapidly regressing into a tribal society rife with acrimony, anxiety and suspicion spawned by a return to racism and bigotry. 

Among the most important dates in the Civil Rights Movement was August 28, 1963, and the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.  Little did those of us who were there understand or appreciate that day would be historic, not only because of the electrifying oration delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. but that this singular event would mark the beginning of the end of institutional discrimination and racism in the United States and the near-unanimous national affirmation that everyone must be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin.

Nor could the bulk of those involved in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s ever fathom that beginning in the 2000s the American Left and the Democrat party would, with forethought, maliciously and incessantly exploit the nation’s past and undermine the achievements of so many. 

More on this topic at American Greatness.

The Wall Street Journal just published a farewell column by its Washington bureau chief Gerald F. Seib, who is leaving his post “after three stormy decades.” Although Seib believes “our democracy has always adapted and can do so again,” his column deals mostly with the stormy weather that is now battering this country. 

“America’s political system is fractured and polarized, and reasonable debate seems to have given way to mindless shouting,” Seib writes. “Democrats seem unable to hold on to older rural voters, Republicans unable to talk to young urban voters. The unsubstantiated claims that the 2020 presidential election was somehow stolen from former President Donald Trump represents a dangerous cancer growing inside the body politic.”… 

Seib appeals to bipartisanship in the same way as my leftist academic colleagues 40 years ago invoked moral equivalence in the struggle against the Soviet Union. Everyone was supposedly equally to blame for communist aggression and tyranny, but Western countries were perhaps a little more guilty for whatever reasons the Left could come up with. In the same way, Seib cites the “cancer” of disputing the 2020 election returns and strongly suggests that if the elections this year become “corrosive,” that may be due to Trump’s mischievous complaints about the last presidential election. 

Not surprisingly, a kindred spirit, Bret Baier, celebrated Seib on Fox News after his valedictory was published. Baier strongly affirmed both Seib’s call for bipartisanship and his attack on the “dangerous cancer” of disputing the last presidential election.  It would seem that acceptance of the official results of that contest is a precondition for making our society and government sound again. Seib also looks back with nostalgia to the “bipartisan stewardship” that made the budgets of the Clinton era possible. Perhaps we could return to that high point in American history once we get past our reprehensible gerrymandering and the “cancer” of Trump’s dissing the vote counters.

Allow me to note the following relevant points: Democratic presidential candidates, perhaps most stridently Hillary Clinton, have refused to concede their defeats in past elections, but such denials do not constitute for our retiring Journal columnist a “cancer in the body politic.” Ever since her defeat in a Georgia gubernatorial race in 2018, black activist Stacey Abrams has been angrily contesting her loss and attributing it to racist Republican administrators. Why isn’t Abrams’ denial and incitement to racial strife an irritant worthy of mention? 

Well, all is not lost.

When Americans really did take care of each other:

I still have a couple old quilts which have flour sack cloth in them.

Welcome to memesville.

Have a good day y’all.

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

And, of course, the obligatory George Carlin:

Per the Boss:

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Auntie DePat’s requests:

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

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

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

One other vital note:

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

ACTS 17:15, 22–18:1

1715Those who conducted Paul brought him as far as Athens; and receiving a command for Silas and Timothy to come to him as soon as possible, they departed. 22So Paul, standing in the middle of the Are-op’agus, said: “Men of Athens, I perceive that in every way you are very religious. 23For as I passed along, and observed the objects of your worship, I found also an altar with this inscription, `To an unknown god.’ What therefore you worship as unknown, this I proclaim to you. 24The God who made the world and everything in it, being Lord of heaven and earth, does not live in shrines made by man, 25nor is he served by human hands, as though he needed anything, since he himself gives to all men life and breath and everything. 26And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, 27that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us, 28for `In him we live and move and have our being’; as even some of your poets have said, `For we are indeed his offspring.’ 29Being then God’s offspring, we ought not to think that the Deity is like gold, or silver, or stone, a representation by the art and imagination of man. 30The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all men everywhere to repent, 31because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all men by raising him from the dead.” 32Now when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked; but others said, “We will hear you again about this.” 33So Paul went out from among them. 34But some men joined him and believed, among them Dionys’ius the Are-op’agite and a woman named Dam’aris and others with them. 181After this he left Athens and went to Corinth.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another, as well as Gil, RDS, Bakocarl, and any others facing serious health issues right now..

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

And from JP….

To everyone concerned, no, but the truth matters. If he were illegal, that would inform our arguments about the border. If he is not, that aspect of it is taken off the table in this particular instance.

13 students in Uvalde hospital.

Fox earlier reported Ramos lived with Grandparents. Had no info on Grandfather or parents yet.

Isn’t it funny how depending on the shooter, they sometimes will have information about parents, siblings, social media…lots of stuff..but others, nothing. The same tiny blurbs over and over

Now reporting he had lisp, stuttered, was bullied and ostracized due to it. Bad home life – Must be with Mom.

And the argument will be that guns must be restricted so people like him can’t access them, infringing the rights of everyone else.

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎ULTRA MAGA😎

FOX and Abbot reporting that he had a fight with his Grandmother, she was complaining about him not graduating. Reason why he shot her? Grandma called police. Also grandmother worked at the school until 2020. Not sure if that’s why he went there or not. Also heard that it was closest to the home. Then he crashed truck when he pulled up to school, which drew attention from school Police/Resource Officers(there were 2 onsite) causing him to leave 2nd AR and ammo backpack in truck and ran into school through back door. Cops arrived in 3 minutes. BP also arrived, some of them had children that attended the school, probably heard comms on the radio.

No known criminal or mental health history. No meaningful forewarning, except FB posts 30 minutes before, by gunman.

I’m not sure I understand. No known mental health history, but mental health problem that manifested yesterday?

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎ULTRA MAGA😎

Officially, he had no known issues to law enforcement. He obviously had personal issues that were reported to nobody.

Wolf Moon

Illegal? If so, that’s why avoiding systems.

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎ULTRA MAGA😎

Dunno.

gil00

Didnt go to school either. No one cared when he was a kid. Saw a mention he made threats in middle school but no reference. Its was abuelitas truck he stole and crashed btw.

He had just turned 18. Probably (total speculation) had a record a mile long that was sealed under “juvenile”.

Wolf Moon

Butt-covering everywhere.

TRANS is automatic MAJOR mental health problem IMO.

I think it is insanity that we are supposed to view it any other way. But that’s just me.

That’s exactly how the insanity is made to spread.

TRANS is automatic MAJOR mental health problem” Absolutely, but not just of the tranny but now also of society that embraces, excuses, & perpetuates these severe delusions!

TheseTruths

Here’s some info.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10853295/Uvalde-school-shooter-Salvador-Ramos-LEGALLY-bought-two-AR-15-rifles-week-18th-birthday.html

Ramos turned 18 on May 16 and quickly bought two AR-15s and more than three hundred rounds of gun ammunition. 

One of them was purchased at the Oasis Outback store in Uvalde, a 10-minute drive from his house. 

His grandmother, believed to be 66-year-old Celia Martinez, took him for dinner to Applebee’s to celebrate his birthday. 

On Wednesday morning, her husband Rolando Reyes, 74, told ABC News that neither of them were aware their grandson then bought the guns. 

‘I didn’t know he had weapons. If I’d have known, I would have reported it,’ Rolando, who has a past felony conviction and cannot be in a home with firearms, said.

Ramos’s grandmother survived despite being shot in the head. She is in the hospital. 

The shooter’s grandfather also revealed that he was quiet, but would sometimes go to work with him.

‘Sometimes I’d take him to work with me. Not all the time, but sometimes. This past year he didn’t go to school. He didn’t graduate. You would try to tell him but kids nowadays they think they know everything. 

‘He was very quiet, he didn’t talk very much.’ 

The teen did not live with his mother because they had ‘problems’, the grandfather added. 

On Tuesday, he was out of the house when the teen opened fire. A neighbor called him to tell him his wife had been shot but by the time he got back to the house, Ramos had escaped in his grandmother’s car. 

‘The neighbor called me and said she’d been shot. When I came over here he said he’d taken off. It still hasn’t sunk in,’ he said. 

The Call of Duty obsessed gunman bought two weapons including a Daniel Defense AR-15 worth $1,870. He posted a receipt for that purchase on the website Yubo, which was obtained by The Daily Dot on Tuesday after the shooting.  

singingsoul1

Where did he get the money ?

mollypitcher5

Suppsedly he’s been working at a Wendy’s. Probably saved up

singingsoul1

That is a good possibility that he saved. Wonder if he had responsibility like pay for room and board? He obviously had no car grandpa is still working a 74. He had to much time not contributing and was lost.

TheseTruths

Good question! Maybe he used his grandparents’ credit card or something.

singingsoul1

That might be a point but grandparents did not know he bought weapons? Fallow the money maybe that sheds a light.

Cuppa Covfefe

Sounds like he was “Fed” the weapons, perhaps in a Fast and Furious sort of way….

Lots of odd things. Skipping school and being really silent and withdrawn are often warning signs, either for drugs or various psychological problems.

And it looks (of course) like the Trans stuff is getting buried, though it might well lead to the source of his problems, and who was diddling with his mind.

Ironic how it’s illegal in some states to provide “normalization” counseling for gays, transis, etc., yet it’s perfectly OK to push an impressionable (or depressed, etc.) youth into deviant behaviour.

Not just ironic. Tragic (and a sinful abomination)…..

I hope and pray that GOD shines HIS light on this, and the truth comes out, whether the perps and the politicos and the TLAs like it or not…..

singingsoul1

Good thoughtful past 🙂

kalbokalbs

Dirt bag had a felony on his record.

Felony’s hidden cuz he was under 18 at the time?

Dirt bag bought two ARs.

ANOTHER reason background checks are stoopid on steroids.

Background checks do NOT work.

ATF is surely all over the FFL that sold the ARs to dirt bag.

Feds gotta have a scalp. Dead dirt bag not acceptable scalp.

TheseTruths

I thought that too at first, about the felony, but I think it was the grandfather who had the felony. Because of that, he could not have firearms in his home.

kalbokalbs

Got it. Stand corrected.

mollypitcher5

I think it’s Grandpa that has the felony

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎ULTRA MAGA😎

Yes, Grandpa not allowed to have guns in the house because of his own felony.

kalbokalbs

Oh. OK. Prolly purchase was legal. Illegal to bring into Grandpa’s home.

America needs real solutions and real leadership in this moment, not politicians and partisanship. That’s why I will keep my longtime commitment to speak in Texas at the NRA Convention and deliver an important address to America. In the meantime, we all continue to pray for the victims, their families, and for our entire nation—we are all in this together!

TheseTruths

Great! The more we hear from him, the better. I looked up the convention, and it is this weekend in Houston.

Gingersmom2009

So they’ll be all over Trump for speaking at the convention – how stupid and callous can he be. Will be a major chunk of the weekend news cycle. Convenient isn’t it that the “event” was in Texas as well. I simply don’t trust ANY of these “events” anymore. And I mean none.

Wolf Moon

Planned op, clearly. Multiple groups, highly compartmentalized, with minimal cross-knowledge.

Barb Meier

I think very likely.

Gingersmom2009

Read a comment at Burning Platform – guy talking about getting an alert on his phone describing the initial situation in Texas. Saying the shooter was downed by a concealed carry outside the building, never entered, one injury. That’s it. 3 hours later, new narrative. I posted this already.

singingsoul1

Trump is an easy target for those who are never Trumpers or those who moved on. Those of us who are MAGA- MAGA are not as nit picking.
I agree do not trust these events.
Lots of spiritual attacks we fight back and Lords Prayer is one of the weapons.

Great opener, DePat. Thanks.

Thanks to Wolf for restoration. One of the few sane places left on the web.

Mini-ground report. A nice neighbor friend (58 years old) was jabbed to “protect” her immune compromised husband at his request since he could not be per doc orders. He’s a normie sheeple who believes the media and Dems. She was hesitant about it. I had warned her last fall not to do that, but her husband is bull headed. She now has Bells Palsy with serious eye issues going on. No previous or pre-existing health issues, was on no prescribed meds. She is the breadwinner in the home and travels in her job – which is not possible until the Palsy/eye issues subside. I could only shake my head, tell her I would pray for her and offer assistance as needed. No point in pouring salt into her wounds.

I participated in Steve Kirsh’s most recent COVID survey. Entered another neighbor friend’s death from the jabs/COVID that I posted about on here previously.

https://stevekirsch.substack.com/p/eight-different-surveys-all-show?token=eyJ1c2VyX2lkIjo1ODg5NzUwNywicG9zdF9pZCI6NTU4NzMyNzIsIl8iOiJuTlk1ZSIsImlhdCI6MTY1MzQ5NjA5MCwiZXhwIjoxNjUzNDk5NjkwLCJpc3MiOiJwdWItNTQ4MzU0Iiwic3ViIjoicG9zdC1yZWFjdGlvbiJ9.r8xoa18AjwJlvJJn1aYqtF-2TCtFg2PUJRBUOI2X0mo&s=r

Attended a “field day” event at a grandchild’s primary school yesterday. A day spent competing with fun stuff – hoola hoops, races, shoe tosses, etc. A good time to only learn about the tragedy in TX later. Could have happened here or anywhere. About 200 second graders plus teachers and families were there. Fortunately we had an armed SRO and my SIL, who is an LEO in a neighboring town, there with his service weapon. The rest of us are not supposed to carry on school property. That may change now.

As far as masks – in a crowd of around 500 people in that small school gym there was one Karen who forced her son to wear a mask during the events who also left early after her son had finished competing. Of course the son did not wear the mask properly or keep his hands off of it while being around and touching other kids. Stupid knows no bounds with many Karens. I feel sorry for the boy having a dumb azz like that for a mom. Nobody else wore a mask or were the slightest bit interested in social distancing. Back to normal around here and I doubt many folks will ever comply with anything they ever attempt to do.

One final thing, F Bite-me. I know he has dementia, but he is doing the devil’s work willingly.

It’s so sad to see people who had been in good health have adverse effects from an injection they didn’t need in the first place. I hope she fully recovers.

TradeBait2

Thank you, Truths. She really is a good person and I know was conflicted about doing it. She has a close, conservative Christian lady friend in the neighborhood who I know was not jabbed who also told her not to do it. But I am sure she was intimidated into it by her husband who has been observed many times to bully her. I’m just praying for the Lord’s intercession into her health.

singingsoul1

Sorry to hear about your neighbor. What husband forces his wife to get a shot or visa versa? A selfish move but that is for another day.

“One final thing, F Bite-me. I know he has dementia, but he is doing the devil’s work willingly”.

Spot on, singingsoul1. See post below. Just pray for her if so inclined.

I will pray for her.

Thank you, her name is Jenny.

I pray for Jenny. You are good and caring neighbor 🙂

RDS

Yours Truly is sorry to hear about your neighbor friend. IMO, there’s going to be lot more of this type of thing going on — “latent” or “out of nowhere” adverse reactions to the “vaccines”; and/or “sudden worsening” of previously-existing conditions, even in people who had these conditions under control before getting the injections.
It will be interesting when people who get “breakthrough cases” of COVID are then given Paxlovid by their doctors — and the patients find out that Paxlovid is a combination medication of two separate pills, one of which is used to treat HIV/AIDS — because the spike protein poison in the “vaccines” has at least one spike of a viral element that’s similar to the HIV virus. Plus, the “vaccines” were / are engineered to damage or destroy the body’s natural immune system.

I wonder at time. Need to clean do wash today tomorrow I am off my one granddaughter is graduating high school. Kind of silly driving 5 hours for a 2 hour graduation in down town Indianapolis ?
Have not heard from our son or anyone else if there are other plans.
The graduation is Saturday but we go early going to visit the Indian Museum across the hotel. Sunday we drive to Columbus go out and Monday back home.

TheseTruths

That’s a long drive, but the important part is your presence there. I think you will feel good about attending, and your dranddaughter will always remember that you were there. The museum visit sounds fun!

Yes she is very sweet. She got a scholarship in swimming at a University.
So funny she looks like me when I was young so does my other granddaughter 🙂

Good on ya for taking time for granddaughter’s graduation. She’ll appreciate the support AND recognition.

And most important the stipend she gets from us 🙂
She is the last one now they are all in college.

So much to be proud of. She’s an athlete with role models to emulate in her own personal ways, as she figures out her life.

She made State in high school. I used to swim a lot all the way until i moved here. I swam through a river at age 6.
I raised my kids right they did not always liked my expectations of them as kids.
They turned out to be good spouses and good parents what else can I ask ? 🙂

kalbokalbs

Success! 🙂

“There is no better success than in the home’
Success is when one raised a decent human being with an ethical compass.
What is success I ask myself all the time and the older I get my idea of success changes.
I will see in the future if it success 🙂 Being good people loving God live out Christ is success I think 🙂

If we would just hold to our American principles and founding, we would not have to deal with people like this. But the Left wants to go global, precisely to take us down.

There’s a lot of people in their 30’s/40’s that seem to be enthralled with cyber advancements. The farther they can go with AI and other things the better but they don’t seem to comprehend that when Schawb gets all glowing thinking about police being able to read your thoughts…you will have for all intent and purpose become a machine

Yes ! Exactly and these people raised on the internet can’t seem to understand the danger.

And I still go back to the founding principles. If people were taught them and understood their importance, they would recognize that someone reading their thoughts is a violation of their rights. People aren’t taught the importance of the rights, by design, so they will not be reluctant to give them up. It’s all about the tech, AI, cyber world, as you say.

Makes me think of Paul, preaching to the Athenians at Mars Hill, where they were always looking for something new (reminds me of SillyCone Valley):

Acts 17:16-34:

16 Now while Paul waited for them at Athens, his spirit was stirred in him, when he saw the city wholly given to idolatry.
17 Therefore disputed he in the synagogue with the Jews, and with the devout persons, and in the market daily with them that met with him.
18 Then certain philosophers of the Epicureans, and of the Stoicks, encountered him. And some said, What will this babbler say? other some, He seemeth to be a setter forth of strange gods: because he preached unto them Jesus, and the resurrection.

19 And they took him, and brought him unto Areopagus, saying, May we know what this new doctrine, whereof thou speakest, is?
20 For thou bringest certain strange things to our ears: we would know therefore what these things mean.
21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)
22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
27 That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us:
28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
30 And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:
31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead.

32 And when they heard of the resurrection of the dead, some mocked: and others said, We will hear thee again of this matter.
33 So Paul departed from among them.
34 Howbeit certain men clave unto him, and believed: among the which was Dionysius the Areopagite, and a woman named Damaris, and others with them.

Mocking. Just like the Globalists (who think themselves gods) and the DEMONRATS and their ilk. Those damned Georgia Guidestones will be the millstone(s) around their necks when GOD casts them into the sea (or the Lake of Fire)…

Romans 1:22:
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

I have to say, looking at this again, that verse 21 fits the iThing generation and those with “genetically attached” smart-phones, tablets, etc. to a “T”… (-offline)…

21 (For all the Athenians and strangers which were there spent their time in nothing else, but either to tell, or to hear some new thing.)

Gov Abbot speaking now.

Posted Abbott’s details about shooter way below, added to Fox info.
He just handed mic to Dan Patrick and a sick SOB (DEM) stood up and started yelling political points at the panel. Panel shouting back at sicko to GTHO. Took a few minutes, law enforcement got him out.

Abbott deliberately left politics out, now fussing at anyone for bringing them up. NOW IS NOT THE TIME. It’s about the victims, their families, students, and teachers.

Last edited 1 month ago by bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎ULTRA MAGA😎

Patrick –
There is EVIL. Politics do not belong right now. Let’s focus on the families. It’s God that brings us together, God puts love in our hearts

Speaker of House – Not the time to politicize pain and suffering. Mental health needs will be addressed by legislature

TXDPS Director – 18yr old drop out, Mar 17 purchased AR, Mar 18 purchased rounds, Mar 20 purchased 2nd AR, 3 FB posts 11-1130, shot Grandma ran across street and called police. Resource officer saw him on school property, shooter then ran into school into room which was comprised of 2 adjoining classrooms, Resource officers had him pinned down, then police arrived…lots of specific details on battle

School Superintendant – Pray for our teachers and community

Q&A

Gov.
Ability to buy long gun has been in place for 60 years
What has changed? Now we have school shootings, WHY, I don’t know
I do know that status of Mental Health issues has changed
We need to do something about it

DPS, We believe all children were shot & killed by Ramos

Gov signed 17 laws on school safety, schools are supposed to comply, unknown if school was in compliance….Tx Education Commissioner – will review,
Patrick- Evil will always find a way, This School District has been pretty good w/Compliance

DPS – 2 School police had shooter contained in classroom, 2 Uvalde police joined in shootout and were injured then more arrived, incident took 40min to 1 hour, over 80 on and off duty cops responded

Abbott – Let me be honest. There are ‘REAL’ gun laws in Chicago, CA, and NY. There are more shootings there every weekend than in Texas. When you talk about solutions, laws aren’t always it. Our job is to come up with a real solution.

Gov- In 2019, 17 Texas laws passed, $600 million allocated, mental health was discussed. TX Legislature debated 1year prior to passing laws in emergency session called by Gov

DPS – Surveillance coming in to be analyzed minute by minute (sounds like there were cameras?, YES THERE IS FOOTAGE) TX Rangers leading investigation

Reporter – Is there a difference between a mental health challenge and evil
Gov – IDK, this has been discussed previously, could a MH Professional figure this out? and possibly helped this person for a specific issue?
Major point – there are no mental health facilities (State?) within miles of Uvalde

Gov-
We won’t be imposing policies on schools without them, we need them at the table for any upcoming changes

Democrats and Republicans in Congress were too busy giving Ukraine 58 billion in the past 5 months to worry about the open border, school safety, homelessness, struggling families, or anything here in the USA.

I don’t want to hear a peep from any of these clowns who voted YES.

If Democrat voters don’t like current gun laws, they should move to 100% Democrat controlled cities with the strictest gun laws so they’ll be safe.

Like – Chicago, NYC, LA, Baltimore, Detroit, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Seattle, Portland, and on, and on, and on.

Valerie Curren

From CS Lewis, via a BibleGateway.com (free) mailing list. Given our recent adventures with broken & restless sleep this speaks to me, perhaps to you as well 

TO SLEEP

I will find out a place for thee, O Sleep—
A hidden wood among the hill-tops green,
Full of soft streams and little winds that creep
The murmuring boughs between.
A hollow cup above the ocean placed
Where nothing rough, nor loud, nor harsh shall be,
But woodland light and shadow interlaced
And summer sky and sea
There in the fragrant twilight I will raise
A secret altar of the rich sea sod,
Whereat to offer sacrifice and praise
Unto my lonely god;
Due sacrifice of his own drowsy flowers
The deadening poppies in an ocean shell
Round which through all forgotten days and hours
The great seas wove their spell.
So may he send me dreams of dead delight
And draughts of cool oblivion, quenching pain,
And sweet, half-wakeful moments in the night
To hear the falling rain.
And when he meets me at the dusk of day
To call me home for ever, this I ask—
That he may lead me friendly on that way
And wear no frightful mask.

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.

GWP: “Sit Down!… You’re a Sick Son-of-a-B*tch” – Gun-Grabber Beto O’Rourke Interrupts TX Presser Following Mass Shooting – Audience Erupts (VIDEO)
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/05/sit-sick-son-bitch-gun-grabber-beto-orourke-interrupts-tx-presser-following-mass-shooting-audience-erupts-video/

Governor Abbott was discussing the situation and giving updates when gun-grabber Democrat Beto O’Rourke interrupted the presser.

Abbott was flanked by several state leaders on the stage.

When Beto started shouting and pointing at Abbott one member on the stage started screaming back at him.

An official screamed back: Sit down!… I can’t believe you’re a sick son-of-a-bitch to make a political statement at a time like this.”

They don’t go for those sick Democrat politics in Texas.

Beto was whisked away by security and left the room a few moments later.

Beto trying to get attention and political points. What a moronic, disgraceful thing to do.

My husband shared this with me recently, a pertinent encouragement in times of waiting!

When God asks you to wait, what happens to your spiritual muscles? While you wait, do your spiritual muscles grow bigger and stronger or do they grow flaccid and atrophied? Waiting for the Lord isn’t about God forgetting you, forsaking you, or being unfaithful to his promises. It’s actually God giving you time to consider his glory and to grow stronger in faith. Remember, waiting isn’t just about what you are hoping for at the end of the wait, but also about what you will become as you wait…David Tripp

…(I’m adding some paragraph breaks below for ease of reading–VC)

Here is the rest of the message…

Waiting always presents me with a spiritual choice-point. Will I allow myself to question God’s goodness and progressively grow weaker in faith, or will I embrace the opportunity of faith that God is giving me and build my spiritual muscles? It’s so easy to question your belief system when you are not sure what God is doing. It’s so easy to give way to doubt when you are being called to wait. It’s so easy to forsake good habits and to take up habits of unfaith that weaken the muscles of the heart.

Let me suggest some habits of unfaith that cause waiting to be a time of increasing weakness rather than of building strength. Giving way to doubt. There’s a fine line between the struggle to wait and giving way to doubt. When you are called to wait, you are being called to do something that wasn’t part of your plan and is therefore something that you struggle to see as good. Because you are convinced that what you want is right and good, it doesn’t seem loving that you are being asked to wait. You can see how tempting it is then to begin to consider questions of God’s wisdom, goodness, and love.

Giving way to anger. It’s very easy to look around and begin to think that the bad guys are being blessed and the good guys are get-ting hammered (see Psalm 73). There will be times when it simply doesn’t seem right that you have to wait for something that seems so obviously good to you. It will feel that you are being wronged, and when it does, it seems right to be angry. Because of this, it’s important to understand that the anger you feel in these moments is more than anger with the people or circumstances that are the visible cause for your waiting. No, your anger is actually anger with the One who is in control of those people and those circumstances. You are actually giving way to thinking that you have been wronged by him. Giving way to discouragement.

This is where I begin to let my heart run away with the “If only_____,” the “What if_____,” and the “What will happen if_____.” I begin to give my mind to thinking about what will happen if my request isn’t answered soon, or what in the world will happen if it’s not answered at all. This kind of meditation makes me feel that my life is out of control. Rather than my heart being filled with joy, my heart gets flooded with worry and dread. Free mental time is spent considering my dark future, with all the resulting discouragement that will always follow.

Giving way to envy. When I am waiting, it’s very tempting to look over the fence and wish for the life of someone who doesn’t appear to have been called to wait. It’s very easy to take on an “I wish I were that guy” way of living. You can’t give way to envy without questioning God’s wisdom and his love. Here is the logic: if God really loves you as much as he loves that other guy, you would have what the other guy has. Envy is about feeling forgotten and forsaken, coupled with a craving to have what your neighbor enjoys.

Giving way to inactivity. The result of giving way to all of these things is inactivity. If God isn’t as good and wise as I once thought he was, if he withholds good things from his children, and if he plays favorites, then why would I continue to pursue him? Maybe all those habits of faith aren’t helping me after all; maybe I’ve been kidding myself. Sadly, this is the course that many people take as they wait. Rather than growing in faith, their motivation for spiritual exercise is destroyed by doubt, anger, discouragement, and envy, and the muscles of faith that were once robust and strong are now atrophied and weak.

The reality of waiting is that it’s an expression of God’s goodness. He is wise and loving. His timing is always right, and his focus isn’t so much on what you will experience and enjoy, but on what you will become. He is committed to using every tool at his disposal to rescue you from yourself and to shape you into the likeness of his Son. The fact is that waiting is one of his primary shaping tools.

So, how do you build your spiritual muscles during the wait? Well, you must commit yourself to resisting those habits of unfaith and with discipline pursue a rigorous routine of spiritual exercise. What is the equipment in God’s gym of faith? Here are the things that he has designed for you to build the muscles of your heart and strengthen your resolve: the regular study of his Word; consistent godly fellowship; looking for God’s glory in creation every day; put-ting yourself under excellent preaching and teaching of Scripture; investing your quiet mental time in meditating on the goodness of God (e.g., as you are going off to sleep); reading excellent Christian books; and spending ample time in prayer.

All of these things will result in spiritual strength and vitality. Is God asking you to wait? What is happening to your muscles? Take a Moment 1. Where, right now, is the God of grace calling you to wait?

CS Lewis perspective…

It is usual to speak in a playfully apologetic tone about one’s adult enjoyment of what are called “children’s books”. I think the convention a silly one. No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally (and often far more) worth reading at the age of fifty – except, of course, books of information. The only imaginative works we out to grow out of are those which it would have been better not to have read at all. A mature palate will probably not much be for crème de menthe: but it ought still to enjoy bread and butter and honey.

I looked it up. That is the official trans flag 🤷. There is also a flag for each of these: bisexual, pansexual, lesbian, aromantic (not aromatic, LOL), asexual, non-binary, and agender.

People are playing sick games. Their entire lives revolve around their chosen “sexual identity.”

I was at a place today where the guy behind the counter had a regular haircut, but he was wearing weird earrings and his fingernails were painted blue. He also had the look that I’ve encountered in others, of not fitting in and knowing it. How could people like that NOT feel different? They manufactured the differences themselves. I believe there is anger under the surface aimed at the rest of the normal world for not recognizing them. No doubt there are issues (anger, abuse, depression, etc.) contributing to their attraction to such lifestyles, but making the rest of us pretend they’re normal is not doing anyone any good.

Coming from Sodom by the Bay, aka the San Francisco Gay Area, there are color, pocket, and scarf codes of which Birx could only dream…

Left pocket or right pocket, scarf/handkerchief/oily rag (just kidding), in or out or half-way…. all of it has a meaning…

And pity the poor sod who left early in the morning, in a hurry, and grabbed what looked like a white old-school handkerchief…

I have the links and the article on another PC, but they are probably searchable. The Berkeley Barb doesn’t exist anymore, but there are MANY SF publications with, erm, educational material…

As it was in the days of Noah…

Maddening how the left talks so much about “acceptance” and “inclusion” and all the other buzzwords, yet forces people and vulnerable youtha to focus on their differences as opposed to their talents and gifts (indeed, blessings) that they have in common.

Diversity.

BS.

DIVIDErsity…

I had a colleague, talented, great, funny guy, good with kids and customers alike (sometimes not a lot of difference there 🙂 ), who HAD been engaged to a VERY nice young lady. They were happy together, and it looked like they would share a wonderful future together.

BUT…

The Gaystapo intervened, pulled him away, and them apart, and pulled him onto the dark side, which, in his lack of knowledge of it, proved to be more than dangerous to him, and his, erm, protection sadly lacking (or so I’m told).

He eventually contracted AIDS and died a painful death.

The two pervert perps (one, a flamboyant flamingo gay, the other a “bitchy woman-type” gay) who pulled him down into that cesspool, are still around.

Breaks my heart every time I think of it. RIP, RS…

He came from a strong Christian family….

Thanks for the answer TT. These dysphoric people revel in their new status as teflon untouchables but don’t put them under one banner..nope, they must have their own clan and colors.

Imo, him being a tranny is a way to control something in his life, to gain noteworthy acceptance, and change the failure he became as a male, also excuse his failures bc he was “trapped.”

Excellent dig! Thanks much

WOW, I’ve encountered a whole new niche of transgender horror stories—transgender dementia patients who remember their “original gender” and don’t understand all of the horrible mutilations done to them. I originally thought the following anecdote was a creative troll, but no, apparently this is common enough that the UK had to develop guidelines for dealing with tranny dementia patients.

From the BBC: Dementia care advice for transgender patients drawn up

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-wales-43365446

She said: “Take for instance a transgender woman – they may well get quite concerned and disturbed at being in female clothes.

“They may worry why certain parts are missing from their anatomy. So it’s these sort of things that I’d like staff to be aware of. There’s no simple answer… but it really is a worrying scenario.

He said: “As dementia progresses a person may not recall their current gender and they may see themselves being pre-transition and be surprised at the physical changes to their bodies.

“This can result in them becoming very disorientated and anxious. They may not understand why they are being referred to as being a certain gender as they cannot recall publicly voicing this preference.”

That sounds particularly horrifying, but that’s the ride they bought the ticket for.

Bruce Jenner will be glad he kept his man parts if he goes senile. At least he can look down and see it, now the rest of him…yuck

A worthless factoid coming up..probably way TMI too but..what the heck. When my father went into assisted living…let me tell ya..those oldsters most of them with dementia of varying degrees had a lot of “encounters with each other” (sexual) confirmed by the staff to me.
Talk about blowing my mind..lol dayum

He has been sliced. A couple years ago.
And yep they do that. I knew of a woman who went in and had a boyfriend in there, except her husband, paying the bills and trying to keep her “here” didnt approve.
Staff doesnt intervene, but how do you get by with “consent” when they are there for cognitive decline?

He got snipped ? did not know that. Oh well, fool.

gil00

Yep. He was asked for a while after the initial mutilation and he admitted that he got it done. Iirc he was flustered in a “I just want it over with” way as the reason.
There are retirement gay homes already, so there will need to be alz units that house these people together.
Id sue the f out of a facility if my spouse was sexually molested by another patient.

mollypitcher5

If you mean about the assisted living thing..apparently it was consensual.

cthulhu

Under our current laws, mentally incapacitated people cannot legally give consent.

gil00

Ah ok.

TheseTruths

I had never heard of this. It’s so very sad how disturbed people become in order to make the “transition” decision, when their very being knows it’s not right.

Cuppa Covfefe

Second saddest thing of all is that they persist in trying to make an impossibility “real”.

Saddest thing of all is they have traded their immortal soul for a lie from the pit of HELL…

A while back, a topic came whizzing across the blog regarding the Fifth Circuit’s clipping the wings of the SEC’s pocket judges.

This article covers the issue nicely and is pretty thorough —

Come on! The place and the timing and the event and a mid-term election with Dems looking at historical defeat and a Durham prosecution of a Clinton thug…just by chance preceded by a mass shooting.

Sorry, all too convenient for me. Reminds me of the Columbine shooting…was there not an NRA event in Denver as well???

Now I just found this from last November! A media frenzy !Leaked NRA recordings of top brass after Columbine shooting in 1999.<<<This is a psychological anchor…they are going hard after the NRA on this one. Bet on it!

No way that all of this is coincidence. Something stinks…

Secretly recorded tapes of National Rifle Association of America (NRA) discussions after the Columbine High School shooting of 1999 reveal the organization’s immediate response to the tragedy and highlight the organization’s public shift on school shootings.

NPR.org has reportedly obtained more than 2.5 hours’ worth of audio conversations of the previously taped deliberations following the mass shooting and managed to confirm the identities of some of the individuals on the call. On the day of the shooting, the NRA’s top officials including “executives, lobbyists, and public relations strategists” quickly scrambled to determine how to deal with the highly publicized crisis.

NRA strategists appeared to struggle as they worked to come up with an approach to the horrific ordeal. NPR notes that the strategists “sounded shaken and panicked as they pondered their next step into what would become an era of routine and horrific mass school shootings.”

“Everything we do here has a downside,” NRA official Kayne Robinson said on the tapes. “Don’t anybody kid yourself about this great macho thing of going down there and showing our chest and showing how damn tough we are. … We are in deep s*** on this deal. … And so anything we do here is going to be a matter of trying to decide the best of a whole bunch of very, very bad choices.”

At the time, the 1999 shooting was deemed the worst mass shooting to take place at a United States school since the 1960s. NRA lobbyist Jim Baker on the conference call.

“At that same period where they’re going to be burying these children, we’re going to be having media … trying to run through the exhibit hall, looking at kids fondling firearms, which is going to be a horrible, horrible, horrible juxtaposition,” said Baker.

NPR also highlighted other key details from the calls. “In addition to mapping out their national strategy, NRA leaders can also be heard describing the organization’s more activist members in surprisingly harsh terms, deriding them as ‘hillbillies’ and ‘fruitcakes’ who might go off-script after Columbine and embarrass them.”

“I got to tell you, we got to think this thing through, because if we tuck tail and run, we’re going to be accepting responsibility for what happened out there,” said NRA official Jim Land.

PR consultant Tony Makris also weighed in on Land’s remarks.

“That’s one very good argument, Jim,” Makris replied. “On the other side, if you don’t appear to be deferential in honoring the dead, you end up being a tremendous s***head who wouldn’t tuck tail and run, you know? So it’s a double-edged sword.”

Looking an awful like a setup to me.

One sentence in the Our Movement Speech from October 2016 always comes back to mind when Trump was saying that the cabal would do anything to stay in power…he reiterated stressing the point…“And I do mean ANYTHING.”

It was clear to me what he meant.

No reason to not speak, as planned.

Don’t blink.

Agreed. Take them head on. They are in a time pinch and they need those guns. Ain’t happening!

They know (in spite of their Piglosi-induced subzero IQs) that killing the Second Amendment kills the rest of the Bill of Rights, and, by extension, the Constitution itself.

What escapes them, however, is that these enumerated RIGHTS come from GOD, not from man.

So they can churn and bitch and complain and lie, cheat, steal, etc., but GOD WILL MAKE ALL THINGS TO HIS WILL, HIS WAY, AND HIS GLORY, FOR EVER AND EVER!!!

JW in Germany

AMEN!

  5. Amid charges of ceding U.S. sovereignty to the World Health Organization, 12 of the 13 amendments submitted by the Biden administration for a vote in the World Health Assembly this week in Geneva have been removed from consideration.
  6. The amendments were publicized only last month, and it was the advocacy of independent researcher James Roguski that alerted the public to the implications for U.S. sovereignty, prompting a groundswell of popular opposition, largely in the past week.
  7. Roguski, who has been monitoring the WHA proceedings, which began Sunday, said the withdrawal appears to be the result of “the massive response from people all over the world in opposition to the amendments to the International Health Regulations, along with legal actions in the U.K. (and a whole lot of prayer).”

  11. Hallelujah!!! I can’t help but feel I was a part of that “massive response” – I know for a fact I was one who pressured Fox into covering it! Dang, that feels good, I gotta say!!!! And I know I’m crowing but…..the fact that Tucker came out with it the very night that all the farmers around here got the newspaper with my LTE about this gives me a certain amount of gravitas around here.

  1. Remember when I mentioned that Melissa, in the City office, had asked why she hadn’t seen any LTE’s lately? I just called her to ask if she read it last week – she hadn’t read the paper yet so I told her to read it and then watch Tucker. She said “that is amazing!” and I explained: THAT is why I do what I do!!!!

Yes. They talked a lot about the Q-Tree outage & the inability to get to the U-Tree or the backup Q-Tree pages either, at least though 10:30am this morning.

I’m really happy about the amendments being withdrawn from the WHO. I must have missed coverage of it.

Amid charges of ceding U.S. sovereignty to the World Health Organization, 12 of the 13 amendments submitted by the Biden administration for a vote in the World Health Assembly this week in Geneva have been removed from consideration.

The amendments were publicized only last month, and it was the advocacy of independent researcher James Roguski that alerted the public to the implications for U.S. sovereignty, prompting a groundswell of popular opposition, largely in the past week.

Roguski, who has been monitoring the WHA proceedings, which began Sunday, said the withdrawal appears to be the result of “the massive response from people all over the world in opposition to the amendments to the International Health Regulations, along with legal actions in the U.K. (and a whole lot of prayer).”

Along with the fact that the amendments can be resubmitted in the future and WHO’s ultimate objective is for the leading nations to sign a global pandemic treaty, “now is not the time to relax,” Roguski wrote on his Substack page dedicated to the issue.

Apparently it was covered on Bannon’s War Room:

In an interview Tuesday with “War Room,” Roguski explained that opponents of the move to give the WHO more power shouldn’t rest, because the Working Group for Pandemic Response “will never give up.”

“They will keep trying to do this again in the future,” he said. “We’ve got to stay vigilant.”
