I AM the Door

The statement “I am the door,” found in John 10:7, is the third of seven “I am” declarations of Jesus recorded only in John’s Gospel. These “I am” proclamations point to His unique, divine identity and purpose. In this “I am” statement, Jesus points out for us the exclusive nature of salvation by saying that He is “the door,” not “a door.” Furthermore, Jesus is not only our Shepherd who leads us into the “sheepfold,” but He is the only door by which we may enter and be saved (John 10:9). Jesus is the only means we have of receiving eternal life (John 3:16). There is no other way.

To get a clear picture of Jesus’ meaning in this statement, it’s helpful to understand a little of that ancient culture, especially of sheep and shepherding. Of all domesticated animals, sheep are the most helpless. Sheep will spend their entire day grazing, wandering from place to place, never looking up. As a result, they often become lost. But sheep have no “homing instinct” as other animals do. They are totally incapable of finding their way to their sheepfold even when it is in plain sight. By nature, sheep are followers. If the lead sheep steps off a cliff, the others will follow.

Additionally, sheep are easily injured and are utterly helpless against predators. If a wolf enters the pen, they won’t defend themselves. They won’t try to run away or spread out. Instead they huddle together and are easily slaughtered. If sheep fall into moving water, they will drown. However, sheep do fear moving water and will not drink from any stream or lake unless the water is perfectly still. This is why David in the 23rd Psalm tells us of the shepherd who “makes [us] to lie down in green pastures, he leads [us] beside the still waters . . . though [we] walk through the valley . . . [we] will fear no evil. For You [the Shepherd] are with [us].”

Sheep are totally dependent on the shepherd who tends them. Shepherds were the providers, guides, protectors and constant companions of sheep. So close was the bond between shepherd and sheep that to this day Middle Eastern shepherds can divide flocks that have mingled at a well or during the night simply by calling their sheep, who know and follow their shepherd’s voice. Shepherds were inseparable from their flocks. The shepherd would lead the sheep to safe places to graze and make them lie down for several hours in a shady place. Then, as night fell, the shepherd would lead the sheep to the protection of a sheepfold.

There were two kinds of sheepfolds or pens. One kind was a public sheepfold found in the cities and villages. It would be large enough to hold several flocks of sheep. This sheep pen would be in the care of a porter or doorkeeper, whose duty it was to guard the door to the sheep pen during the night and to admit the shepherds in the morning. The shepherds would call their sheep, each of which knew its own shepherd’s voice, and would lead them out to pasture.

The second kind of sheep pen was in the countryside, where the shepherds would keep their flocks in good weather. This type of sheep pen was nothing more than a rough circle of rocks piled into a wall with a small open space to enter. Through it the shepherd would drive the sheep at nightfall. Since there was no gate to close—just an opening—the shepherd would keep the sheep in and wild animals out by lying across the opening. He would sleep there, in this case literally becoming the door to the sheep.

In this context, Jesus is telling us that He is not only the shepherd of the sheep, but also the door of the sheep. In doing so, He is vividly contrasting Himself with that of the religious leaders of His time whom He describes as “thieves and robbers” (John 10:8). When Jesus says, “I am the door,” He is reiterating the fact that only through Him is salvation possible. This is far removed from the ecumenical teachings popular in today’s liberal religious circles. Jesus makes it clear that any religious leader who offers salvation other than the teachings of Christ is a “thief” and a “robber.”

One who believes the gospel (Hebrews 11:6) and repents of sin (Luke 13:3) is assured of being in “the fold” and of having entered by “the door.” As followers of Christ, Jesus is both our Shepherd and the Door to the sheepfold who provides for all our needs. Knowing that the world is full of predators whose sole intent is to destroy us (1 Peter 5:8), we are always under His protection. More importantly, we are fully confident that “when the Chief Shepherd appears, [we] will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away” (1 Peter 5:4).


[Jesus], being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to His own advantage; rather, He made Himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He Humbled himself by becoming obedient to death – even death on a cross!

Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

We are so fortunate to have our brother bakocarl help us to a better understanding of the Word.

Mind you, the Word is there. And there are those who would “interpret” the Word for us and likely lead us astray. But the Word was written in a far-off land in a different language for those of a different lifestyle than most of us today, and “hints” are helpful and appreciated.

pgroup2

But principles never change.

cthulhu

True, though modern discernment of such principles may not be as easy as the original audience might have found.

Imagine, if you would, if Jesus had come to RF121’s world instead of shepherds and fishermen two thousand years ago. All the teachings and parables would refer to things like “overpressure”, “operators”, and “certification”. We’d have verses like, “when sealing a pressure vessel, the bolts shall be torqued to the rightful measure — no more, and no less — and, just so, with the attention of Man to the Word of God…..thou shalt take care of business with thy kith and kin and give thanks to the Lord in due measure.”

The principles might be exactly the same but clothed very differently.

Gail Combs

Only 3% of Americans are farmers. The Committee for Economic Development at the end of WWII DELIBERATELY TARGETED INDEPENDENT FARMERS FOR REMOVAL.. Not only did they break-up extended families, they scattered those family members among cities to be factory workers. As E.M. Smith says, we are now all itinerant workers with no strong ties to family or place.

This meant the long term Church-Village-Family support network was destroyed and people had to RELY on the GOVERNMENT. It also made it MUCH easier to attack churches (Johnson’s 501C3 anyone) and insert socialist/marxist leaders.

The family knowledge of farming and ties to the land was also broken making it easier to change the messages in the parables. Grandad and Grandma are no longer there to correct the message and with a constantly changing ‘Flock’ the laity’s control of the church is much weakened. The Church elders who would likely be farmers are GONE.

” The Socialist Revolution in the US cannot take place because there are too many small independent farmers there. Those people are the stability factor. We here in Russia must hurry while our government is stupid enough to not encourage and support the independent farmership.” ~ V. Lenin, the founder of the Russian revolution

GA/FL

Property taxes and inheritance taxes also took their toll on our farmers.

TradeBait2

The later was just awful in some agriculture states for decades.

singingsoul1

That seems evil to tax people out of their livelihood. Wonder how Amish deal with that or do they have tax exemptions?

Gail Combs

CED was advocating for raising Farm Property Taxes here in NC a few years ago. In Taxachusetts if you are a farm and sell off a house lot, they will come and re-evaluate YOUR ENTIRE WORKING FARM as HOUSE LOTS and tax you accordingly. A friend lost his farm, that was in the family for over 300 years to that tactic. He had to sell a bit of land to make ends meet and then got a major whammy.

TradeBait2

I agree, Gail.

What I find encouraging as a countermove is I am seeing many in our and other areas who have recognized the danger and are moving back out to the rural areas to do their own versions of mini-farms. They then sell the excess product at the farmer’s markets and to farm-to-table restaurants. Most are doing chicken coops and raising goats. Some are into the more traditional livestock and beekeeping. We joined an even more rural church a half dozen years ago where the head deacon and his deacon brother operate a large cattle farm. He keeps the herd number up far above their family needs for the purpose of having it available if needed for friends and church members. He is a retired biologist with the NPS.

Folks are moving out to buy a minimum of 3 acres and most are seeking 10-20 acres. Not working farms for money, just to provide for family and friends while teaching the children a better way. At least one, usually the guy, will maintain a good job while the other handles a lot of the chores and kids. Many are homeschooling – that is exploding off the charts here.

Our daughter and SIL have the land move on their minds and are saving for it. He has always fished, but is getting more into hunting lately. We have abundant deer and wild turkey. He fed his family for a few months on a buck he shot last fall.

Gail Combs

Yes, I am seeing that in my area too.

Brave and Free

Yes I totally agree, we here are very fortunate for the message Carl brings. We’re all fortunate for what everyone brings to the table hear at the tree.

singingsoul1

Yes at the time of Jesus people understood what a shepherd was and the relationship to his sheep.
Today many cannot relate because they do not understand the shepherd and sheep relationship.
Also in our language we often diminish the sheep as dumb. Can I see the rejection of some people rejecting the metaphor as being the sheep in Christ’s flock?
The value of shepherd in culture is lost.
I therefore enjoyed Scotland in the hills are the sheep and shepherding is alive so is the Faith. The understanding and relationship is there. Just think of the simple life of the shepherd he in his isolation is the holistic healer and has much wisdom. What a noble profession. So much love for the sheep he is tending too, so much care for the sheep that gets lost. In my next life I like to heard sheep in the mountains of Scotland. 🙂

Gail Combs

Goats are smarter than Sheep but my sheep can figure out simple mazes (going thru gates to get to their feed)

If you want REALLY DUMB try domesticated turkeys. If you want SMART try pigs.

singingsoul1

I like pigs 🙂 Poor turkeys .
“.Sheep can figure out simple maize and go through the gate”

I love that how appropriate. Sadly many living only in their head people having problems with the maize and trouble with the gate. 🙂 Only a mediocre.

Correction: Metaphor  😛   🙄

Interesting video from a red-pilled anti-jab Canadian doctor who lives in Mexico, but is back in Canada visiting. He is being interviewed about things, and he’s both hopeful and realistic.

First of all, he thinks Aubergine is right. Nasty winter coming. Lots of deaths. GET READY.

Lots of NEUROLOGICAL issues from the jabs. Says it makes sense – that the lipid nanoparticle tech was designed for penetration of the blood-brain barrier – designed to go to the brain.

Mentions another Canadian in Mexico who was blogging about politicians in Canada. KILLED, along with his wife. Thinks it was targeted hit.

Talking about the hypnosis of the masses – says 30% will never wake up. Base all our predictions on that.

Very interesting stuff.

Gail Combs

“…Talking about the hypnosis of the masses – says 30% will never wake up….”

….

Goes with the 2009 Rassmusen poll after the world food riots and Forclosure-gate.

In December 2009:
Tea Party Tops GOP on Three-Way Generic Ballot – Rasmussen Reports

in 2009 a “…. new Rasmussen Reports “generic ballot” poll shows 

Democrats attracting 36% of the vote.

The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%,

and Republicans finish third at 18%.

Another 22% are undecided….”

Yet a few scant months later, in February 2010, Rasmussen Reports shows:
Tea Party Candidate Now Comes In Last On Three-Way Generic Ballot – 

April 13, 2010: 34% Say They Or Someone Close To Them Part of Tea Party Movement
 “Twenty-four percent (24%) of U.S. voters now say they consider themselves a part of the Tea Party movement,” 

After the Blair-Rockefeller poll’s ‘finding’ that the Tea party was ‘racist’ via a series of questions starting with “Do you think it is the responsibility of the federal government to make sure that minorities…” and the MSM blasting that ‘News’ 24/7, it was down to “Just 8% Now Say They Are Tea Party Members” by January 07, 2013.

Tea Party Distinguished by Racial Views and Fear of the Future | Diane D. Blair Center of Southern Politics & Society

So RACE BASHING WORKED! (At least to drive the support underground.) However 30% were oblivious to the CLEAR corporate/financier/Clinton origins of both Foreclosure-gate and the world Food Riots. They CONTINUED to support the designers of those problems, even though ‘hick farmers’ in a little country feed store were completely up to speed.

Q had said less than 10% were lost forever. That is the amount of true Commies in the country according to some QUORA commenters

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Good stuff! That differential shows who can be influenced to HIDE THEIR BELIEFS by the “anti-racist virtue signal propaganda”.

Gail Combs

YUP!!!

The Tea Party types came back in SPADES to support Donald Trump and caught the Deep State flat footed in 2016.

Aubergine

I hope everyone understands that I don’t WANT to be right. I have never wanted to be wrong so much in my life.

I have to wonder if, knowing all of the deaths from the vaxx are coming, the Black Hats are creating all the food and fuel shortages as cover for the deaths. They’ll blame it on freezing or hunger as the bodies stack up.

The horror of all of this is just stunning. When my friend who is another alternative medicine practitioner said half-jokingly that people like us might be the ones left to train a new generation of physicians, it didn’t really sink in that she might really be right. But now? Conventional doctors are dropping like flies.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

When Gates and company started injecting health-care workers FIRST, while completely discounting natural immunity as having a role in protecting healthcare workers and patients, I knew something was terribly wrong. This was a massive RISK – it made no sense.

Now, to me, it’s clear. THEY WANTED THIS.

Who has a motive to kill doctors?

Aubergine

Those who want to kill US. No healthcare into the future means even more death.

Anyone who participated in this deserves a trial and the death penalty.

It’s really hard for me to feel sorry for trained medical people who took this thing. They really should know better. But they are indoctrinated.

kalbokalbs

I damn sure don’t feel bad for medical that took the injection.

IMO, EASY for medical world to “get over” on the Injection process.

  1. Work with the person doing the injecting.
  2. Squirt the Injection poison in medical waste bin.
  3. Toss the syringe in medical waste or the needle bin.
  4. Apply a goofy Band-Aid on the arm.
  5. Document “injected”.
  • ^^^ Betcha this has happened widely.  😎 
Alison

My plan, if forced to get the vax, was to have a wad of $100s in hand to induce the injector person to do a fake plunger shot like we saw in so many photos. Money talks at all levels of corruption.

kalbokalbs

Same here.

Wad of hundreds, in excess of a thousand. WILL speak bigly to someone making $25 at a pharmacy.

Worst case, they say no and I walk out. NEXT pharmacy.

singingsoul1

Creative 🙂

TheseTruths

That might work unless you get a “true believer” who would turn you in in a heartbeat, or unless something were captured on video cameras. Those giving the injections have their own professional reputations and credentials to protect, even if they are on the lower rungs of the professional ladder.

kalbokalbs

OK. Turn me in. BFD. I’m still NOT Injected AND won’t be Injected.

Yes they have credentials to protect. ALL levels of workers, have folks less than 100% By The Letter Of The Book / Procedures.

My ding on $25 per hour was not a ding on “lower level”. Rather, a couple thousand is huge tax free bonus.

Video cameras in the room Injections given? That in itself Is Special. SMDH.

The situation is already rather dystopian, or dare I say NAZI.

At the time they start “forcing” injections on innocent civilians, I hope to be attached to some patriotic military that’s raining bombs on whoever is doing the “forcing”.

Robert Baker

That may be true but my view is tempered. I remember all those videos of people in cars lined up for blocks waiting for the shot. The evidence of herd mentality was everywhere.

singingsoul1

Looking back on my life I feel blessed growing up after WWII the herd mentality was discouraged. It can be a lonely life and one needs to be creative to fill that void and find peace.
It is all grace and gratefulness in the end.

Gail Combs

AMEN!

I was odd man out most of my life and now I am very very grateful for the backbone it instilled in me.

kalbokalbs

…odd man out…

^^^ Blessing in disguise. 100% believe this. ^^^

Gail Combs

I also should have been dead at least 4 different times.

singingsoul1

That is it. One develops backbone.
Looking back when my kids grew up 60-70 people were obsessed that their kids had friends and were for ever pushing them into groups. I did not understand this and let my kids find their own friends. Then when my granddaughter came along day care was the thing and they operated early on in group and group think.
That is where we are now group think.

kalbokalbs

Apples and oranges, MeThinks.

Of course the sheeple were lined up for injections.

Sheeple in blue states and D-Rat shit holes are too commonly lining up for Pravda News reported Safe AND Effective injections. Hell, it was discussed here, late 20 and early 21.

My post addressed medical world. EASY to “paper whip” the system…documenting Injected, Boosted…

There are ways to “bribe” the system. System is staffed by humans.  🙃  It is NOT fail safe. Will NEVER perform as advertised.

Aubergine

Boy I hope so. I really do.

Well, if this “poll” and article doesn’t give a “hint” that independents, REAL Republicans, and conservatives in general are going to be singled out as “they want another Civil War, clamp down on them now”, one is missing something…

kalbokalbs

HLS, FIB and DOJ are “On It”, armed by the Patriot Act.

Gail Combs

EXACTLY! That is why I think 9/11 was an inside job. The Patriot bill appeared WAY TOO FAST not to have been written and debated long before hand.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Sure ties in with FIB agents being ordered to falsely paint things as “DVE” (“domestic violent extremism”).

EVIL. They let ANTIFA slide – Somalis run wild – and FIB goes after people who can’t stand the left running wild and speak against it.

Aubergine

If has to be considered that many (I would say MOST) of the people who would “take up arms against the government” would NOT RESPOND to a poll.

These numbers are not accurate. They are TOO LOW.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yeah, that’s interesting!

TradeBait2

Yep. don’t ever recall being asked my opinion by a pollster in decades. They didn’t like my answers then and they sure would not now. So off the list I went.

It’s all fake and manipulated.

Aubergine

Yeah, pollsters have gotten some pretty heated responses from me years ago. I don’t have a land-line for them to call, either.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

A good lesson about the GOOD SHEPHERD. I get it now!

TheseTruths

Catherine Engelbrecht of True the Vote was interviewed tonight by “Zak ULTRA MAGA Paine.” (I don’t know who he is, but I think he will be one of the ones in The Pit.) The interview can be accessed on Gregg Phillips’ Truth Social and on Rumble. Catherine’s portion is about an hour long.
https://truthsocial.com/@greggphillips
https://rumble.com/v1e6iu3-threats-from-enemies-both-foreign-and-domestic-with-catherine-englebrecht-o.html

This was a serious interview about our elections. I doubt there is anyone who knows more about them than Catherine. She says they are fouled up in every possible way — voter rolls, polls, machines, paper ballots, various state laws being ignored, and other things that I’m not well versed in. Her message is to get ready to do whatever we need to do, and to be ready for the midterms since not much has been fixed since 2020. We need to catch things as they are happening because trying to straighten them out later is nearly impossible. She advised being prepared to take off work during the weeks of early voting and election day. I’m sure more details about what we can do will be forthcoming, and the website has more info.

It is up to us to fix these things because the government is not going to do it. True the Vote has been betrayed by people in government who have turned the tables on them. We have to step up now or we will lose the country. It is a very serious situation, but she ended on a hopeful note.

When asked about Stacey Abrams’ office being used to store ballots, she said it’s so crucial for law enforcement to be involved, because if they do nothing and you speak up against someone like that, you are left hanging out to dry and open to be sued. True the Vote is still in litigation from Abrams since 2020, I think, and it is very expensive. This is why they want things to be reported as they happen and to have someone, like sheriffs, who will enforce the law.  

Someone asked when we would know the information from The Pit, and she said it is scheduled for August 13 and surmised that we might have info that afternoon or the next day. She said the thought of it takes her breath away because she knows everything is going to change after it.

Another person asked if True the Vote was working on identifying bad actors from J6. She said True the Vote’s mission is about elections, but Gregg Phillips and the OpSec team have been working on J6 for some time.  

This was a good interview that gave me a better idea of the big picture regarding our elections and what we are facing.

para59r

Just one aspect on the upcoming elections… seems we are seeing enough stories that the Post Office has been weaponized against us. Several stories brought here indicating that. Would be nice if Congress can at least attempt to shoot a cannon shot across their bow even though I’m doubtful it will do much good, but at least it will wake our side to the problem.

kalbokalbs

Current Congress aids and abets criminal behavior.

The ONLY hope I see for next Congress, is R-Cons have a Super Majority in the Senate and Majority in the House.

THEN, Trump becomes Speaker.

  • Trump can set the agenda to support Americans.
  • Focus on energy and immigration.
  • Undo harm BiteMe has inflicted on America, stop green BS, ESG, CRT BS.
  • IMPEACH BiteMe. Impeach Hoe. Never approve anyone Hoe may nominate for VP. Trump becomes President. 🙂

Trump can still run for President in 2024. And, I know Trump said he didn’t want to be Speaker. Trump had to say, not interested in Speaker.

Asking everyone once more, how will we know if expectations for August 12 have been met?

Gail Combs

You will know when the 100+ independent media, like Patel Patriot, Red Pill 78 and the rest REPORT IT shortly there after.

Tonawanda

So it should be easy to state what those expectations are, now. Just to have an objective standard on what constitutes a bombshell, and to help prevent rationalizations.

TheseTruths

These are some of the things that have been stated about it (if I’m understanding correctly). Any expectations beyond these (and anything else I’ve forgotten to mention here) are not appropriate, IMO.

▪️ That all of the video and other information they have gathered regarding the 2020 election will be released.
▪️ That a group of 100+ people will be brought together for the various purposes stated here.
▪️ That sheriffs are coming on board and will work to prevent election fraud in various ways (with cameras, by being available immediately when fraud is witnessed, etc.)
▪️ That people will be trained in surveillance and research techniques.
▪️ That there will be a Fusion Center where information will be gathered and stored and disseminated.
▪️ That there will be a “big,Tiger” announcement about something.

In other words, we are going to receive some information and methods to investigate, surveil, research, and work with law enforcement. My understanding is that this will both reveal information about past stolen elections and help prevent fraud in the future.

Tonawanda

TY.

Amazing how dumb our citizens are as a rule. They are so brainwashed and stupid. While our appointed leaders sell and they jump on board with climate change and that there are 30 different genders while promoting sexual perversion to the masses; those who could destroy us soon are becoming smarter and more powerful.

So, I wonder who is behind selling our village idiots there is world ending climate change and there are 30 different genders with sexual perversion is the way to go?

KGB certainly used to be good for the charge! CCP now mostly responsible, IMO. Although the Russian communist party is likely still up to no good.

Daniel, in his book talks about the prince of Persia resisting the angel Gabriel who had been sent in response to Daniel’s prayers to God. I imagine not much has changed in the intervening 25 centuries. I suspect the one you may be wondering about is the prince of America.

Great job of sleuthing.

It’s all around us. Be alert, be vigilant. Light is the bet disinfectant.

Barb Meier

Good morning! Thank you Bakocarl for your post on Jesus and the world when he lived among us. I did not know about the sheepherders being able to put their flocks together and so easily separate them again. That is so cool to know. My kitty, Brad Purrsley, likes us to get up in the middle of the night and he’s got me trained fairly well. So, I read your post and took a nap with Bradley after he’d had his early kibble breakfast. I just woke up again while dreaming that my dad called to talk with me. Dad died in 2002 the Saturday after Thanksgiving. It was wonderful to hear his voice again even if only in my dreams. Though he spoke softly, I knew his voice right off. He told me he was doing well and mentioned being at Mt. Sanai. I thought he must mean the hospital, but having looked up Mt. Sanai and seeing they are still masking up and have hired someone to head a dept of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, it cannot be a real hospital anymore. So dad must have meant the mountain in Egypt. It is Sunday, God’s day of rest so kitty and I will have another little nap before we start our day. Perhaps I will get to talk with dad some more or dream of electric sheep. hehe

RDS

Yours Truly believes that your father was telling you that he is OK in the Beyond. Mt. Sinai is the place in the Bible where Moses was given the Ten Commandments by the Almighty.
Yours Truly believes that part of your father’s spirit is still around, just as part of the spirits of all the departed are still around. They sometimes give “signals” to those they left behind. In 2006, my father went to be with my mother and the rest of my departed relatives in the Beyond. Every once in a random while, Yours Truly will see someone driving a dark green, 4-door 1999 Cadillac Sedan De Ville on a road around here. This was the last car my father drove (it was “on loan” from his son-in-law). To me, seeing this car is a “signal” that my father is well and happy in the Beyond.

Barb Meier

Thanks for your thoughts on this, RDS! Cadillac De Villes are beautiful cars with such a comfortable ride. My uncle Bob had one when we kids were little and I got to go with them once. I agree it could be a signal your father is well and happy and do hope you are right. Someday we will know. 🙂

I have learned to be open to spiritual possibilities. Sometimes I have had thoughts pop up seemingly out of nowhere to warn me of things that happen shortly thereafter or explain things I don’t consciously understand that recently happened. I like to think it is my parents reaching out in spirit acting as guardian angels to help me stay safe.

At other times, animals appear unexpectedly and I think my parents send them to tell me they are well and happy too. A bald eagle flew above mom and me shortly after dad died. Normally, they are much closer to the Mississippi River than that eagle was that day. He was flying above the cemetery. Deer stood like sentinels along my journey home from MO to VA after my mom passed away. They all stood facing me driving past and none ever tried to cross the road. They just stood watching in groups or alone.

Some stray thoughts have warned or explained to me “stay in your lane” and “watch out for deer.” My mom once told me one night she either dreamed or saw her own departed mother sit at the edge of her bed and tell her “It’ll be okay sis.” Sis was a nickname her sisters once used. Shortly thereafter, mom got breast cancer but it was okay and she got through that time after a lumpectomy rather than a mastectomy.

Disagree that departed souls ‘talk’ to us or otherwise communicate with us.

Messages are being sent but not by them. It is the Holy Spirit sending the message in a very personal ‘language’ that you are sure to understand came from the ‘other side’. Why are you sure? Because of exactly what you noticed that was personal to you, an individual that God loves and has certainly not forgotten or forsaken.

Always keep in mind the Ten Lost Tribes. Lost, not destroyed. They are still out here, scattered throughout the world with all their knowledge of their identity erased, with their DNA mixed with other tribes. God did this so they could hide in plain sight and have no real danger of being totally eliminated by tyrants (as Herod tried to do to the young male Jewish babies, trying to kill Christ whose parents escaped to Egypt).

Ezekiel 37 tells of the Ten Lost Tribes coming awake and aware. How were they roused from their stupor?

God talked to them via the remnants of their tribal DNA. That same secret comm channel God uses via the Holy Spirit to ‘keep Himself on your mind’ via what you described above.

God bless you as you move down your Path Home. Stay on your path; no other is suitable for you and no other can lead you to The Door to Daddy’s Mansions.

Thank you for your thoughts on what RDS and I have experienced. It seems important to me to accept these things happen though I am not positive how or why. God knows, and that’ll be good enough for me just one more little child, somehow walking through these minefields of bad stuff and getting to the other side. God bless you too pgroup2. I would be happy with a little cottage. God has gifted me so much in my time here and I thank Him every day.

Rochester Memorial Hospital, (University of Rochester) used my Mom as a lab rat for their radiation experiments and then their chemo-therapy Drug research in 1969 – 1971. They DELIBERATELY KILLED HER!

They did the same to my 44 year old brother who died at that age.
Trust is lost in modern medicine.
When I grew up was about 3 km from mores. There lived a woman in a mud hut. She collected herbs we had them all over Germany at the time in isolated places.
That is where people went when they were sick when a wound needed to be healed. No wonder I rejected modern medicine most of the time specially Pharma.
Right now I am experimenting with black seed oil organic cold pressed made in America.
I settled on 1/2 tsp twice a day in 1/2 cup water with my meal. Then I mix for my bad knee 1 tsp coconut oil to 2 tsp black seed oil mix it keep in refrigerator.
I rub it on my knee and massage it in. I also massage the oil onto my legs.
Result is astounding the swelling in my knee is gone so is the pain. I feel better.
So much for Pharmacy 🙂

I would say that the big difference in outlooks is that I focus on the “group mechanics” within the “human frailties” cause that the author cites, whereas he does not. We’re really saying the same thing, but I paint the broader conspiracies of interest within that chaos.

Both are valid ways of looking at things.

“It’s a bowl of vectors” vs. “It’s a bowl of patterns of vectors”.

What happens is that, as the author says, the science gets “opportunized” to the point where money solidifies it against further correction, and it stops behaving like science.

Gail Combs

Once you have government GRANT MONEY, then who ever doles out that money CONTROLS THE SCIENCE and not the scientists.

Everything follows from 1913 Federal Reserve Act and 1913 Federal Income Tax amendment. Between the two America’s excess wealth was vacuumed up and used, not as the INDIVIDUAL wished, but as the Bankster-Oligarchs wished.

Mutual Funds did the same as did pensions. The Wealth earned by the INDIVIDUAL and the corresponding POWER was transferred to FINANCIAL ENTITIES like Black Rock, Vanguard & Fidelity

Very interesting. Viral vector vaccine, like AstraZeneca.

IF there is a lack of side effects (in reality – not just the usual lies), then that means that AstraZeneca’s problems were most likely due to the spike protein per se, and then that the spike protein is inherently unsafe as an immunogen, IMO.

go to 15 minutes for Epstein story.

Roughly:
New York Daily News, December 23, 1997, by Greg B Smith, State Department owned what was official Iranian Residence. It changed hands and then the State Department took it over and was renting it out to JEFFERY EPSTEIN in 1992 for $15,000/month by 1996, Epstein had moved out. He sublet to a lawyer, Fischer at $20,000/month clearing $5,000 a month. State Dept found out and made Epstein kick the guy out…

In her book, All We Like Sheep (© 1987 – https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2802306-all-we-like-sheep – also available eBay and Abebooks.com) the author, Mary Glynn Peeples describes the many ways we humans are like sheep.

The author points out that when a sheep falls and rolls over onto its back, like a turtle, it is helpless and can’t right itself, can’t get up without help from the Shepherd. Likewise, we cannot save ourselves from our sin and fallen nature.

GA/FL

Another story about sheep and shepherds….. 
In 1978, we went on a group tour of Israel with the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship Int.

We flew on El Al out of NYC, and that was an experience in itself. El Al was into serious security and profiling way before 2001!

It was a miserable flight. Back then smoking was allowed on flights and I think every Israeli is a chain smoker. Plus we were in the row directly right up by the middle bathrooms, and there was nowhere to prop our feet. And, some time into that 10+ hour flight, the smell of the bathroom began to ripen unpleasantly, to say the least.

We arrived in Tel Aviv late in the evening, were bussed to the King David Hotel in Jerusalem to spend the night and that was our resident base for the first days of the tour. 

For some reason, we had the windows open during the night, and woke the next morning at dawn to the sounds of the bleating and baas of sheep and the calls of shepherds. 

We looked out the window to a view of a hillside with stone terraces and flocks of sheep – it was like being transported back into Bible times.

The whole trip was amazing and I’d do it again, except we couldn’t – because I won’t take the *&^%$#@! vaccine and Israel, which sold out to Pfizer, requires it.

My late pastor told us a tale from when he was an Army helo pilot, stationed in Iran before the revolution. He said one day he landed on a gentle hilltop in the middle of nowhere to pick up somebody.

While on the ground, his Iranian aides decided to build a fire and brew some tea. He saw two large separate flocks of sheep approaching from opposite sides of the hill. Soon the flocks merged and shepherds joined for some tea. He says to his aide, how will they ever tell which sheep belong to which shepherd. The aide smiled and said, just watch.

When the shepherds got up to go their separate ways, they each gave out a whistle and started walking. They never looked back.

The massive mixed flock divided itself into two groups, each following its shepherd, untill the flocks were completely divided and no sheep was left behind. The aide smiled at my not-yet pastor and said, see? the sheep know their shepherd and they will only follow him. He asked the aide why didn’t they look back to make sure? The aide smiled even more and said, the shepherd trusts the sheep to follow him.

Christ talked about knowing your Good Shepherd and refusing to follow another.

I have been caught up with work related problems that flowed into the weekend, so am unable to deliver next installment as hoped.

However, Carl’s teaching is relevant to what I am building up to, so I will drop the following here, which flows from Carl’s message.

There is a mysterious doorkeeper/porter which opens the door to the shepherd, not only in John 10:3, but also in Mark 13:34 and implied Luke 12:36.

The upshot of this is that their are specific servants elect(ted) to prepare for the return of the Lord and the porter is the person who has to inform the others. The end of Matt 24, from verse 45 expands a bit on this.

Also Malachi 3:1 is deeply concerned with this. John the Baptist was the voice shouting in the wilderness, preparing for His first arrival. There is a messenger again (remember Ecclesiastes 1:9 “what has been will be again”) who must prepare the way before Him – and it involves the New Tabernacle / Temple ….

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 woman walking her dog was singled out, IMO, because Islam permits dogs to be used only for certain purposes, like “hunting and guarding livestock and crops.” A Muslim may keep a dog to guard the house, but only if the residence is outside the city limits, and there is no other way to guard the house. Any other reason for keeping a dog is haram (forbidden). (https://islamqa.info/)

This is how they assimilate the natives into their ways.

Gail Combs

It is JIHAD!

Migration as Jihad – Political Islam

Migration is so important that the Islamic calendar is based upon the Hijra, Mohammed’s migration from Mecca to Medina. Why? Because it was migration that lead to the creation of jihad in Medina. And it was jihad that made Islam triumphant. In the past Muslims tended to stay in Islamic countries.

 Today, the new politics is to migrate to Kafir lands and immerse themselves in local politics. This is the jihad of money, writing and speech. Their politics is to bring the Sharia to Kafir culture. An example is using Islamic money is to build departments in universities that will support Sharia and never criticize Islam.

RDS

Yep, it’s Jihad. In every way possible: subversion of the existing laws of the “target country”; harassment of any non-Muslim; embedding of Muslims into any and all corporate / legislative / educational structures; adding more Muslims into the “target country” in any way possible, legal and illegal; implementation of Islamic Law (Sharia) into the “target country” in any way possible, including the use of female genital mutilation; to make Sharia Law acceptable to the Kuffar and on the SAME LEVEL as that of the laws of the “target country.” Once Sharia Law is accepted as being on the same level as the laws of the “target country”, that kicks open the door to Islamic takeover.

Meanwhile we still get fresh stories like this one from yesterday.

https://justthenews.com/politics-policy/coronavirus/coast-guard-discharge-members-over-covid-vax-mandate-without-separation

Coast Guard to discharge COVID vaccine mandate objectors without separation hearings

“It is impossible to justify this continued mandate and this action based on the current studies and science,” said military defense lawyer R. Davis Younts.

While federal courts have ordered the Navy and Air Force not to take any adverse actions against military members seeking religious exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine mandate, the Coast Guard is seeking to discharge service members refusing the vaccine without allowing them to appear before administrative separation boards to defend their cases. 

Federal courts in Texas and Ohio have granted injunctions against the Navy and Air Force vaccine mandates, respectively, for members seeking religious exemptions. Those injunctions, however, do not apply to any other military branches, including the Coast Guard. 

While in the other branches an administrative separation board is a right to which members are entitled based on service time, the Coast Guard is seeking to deny that due process protection to otherwise qualified COVID vaccine mandate objectors. 

An active-duty Coast Guard rescue swimmer nearing retirement told Just the News that despite an unblemished service record with many awards, he is facing involuntary separation next month after his request for a religious exemption from the vaccine mandate was denied.

Much like the Navy SEALs and other special forces, Coast Guard rescue swimmers are an elite cadre, selected through a highly competitive process and trained under grueling, demanding conditions. Going through rescue swimmer school can take about 10-13 months, and afterwards, members take another eight-week course to become an EMT. Supplemental training is required intermittently throughout their careers, like, for example, helicopter rescue school approximately every four years. 

The rescue swimmer’s religious accommodation request (RAR) and subsequent appeal were rejected with blanket denials, he told Just the News. He would normally be entitled to a board hearing to defend his case, given that he has served for at least eight years, but the Coast Guard seeks to circumvent the board by claiming convenience of the government as the reason for his discharge. 

While discharging members who refuse to get the vaccine, the Coast Guard is simultaneously offering $500 to any member who recruits someone who makes it through boot camp, as the service is struggling with reduced numbers, the rescue swimmer said. Indeed, the rescue swimmers themselves are 80 short of their required minimum as a result of the difficult training and structural issues with the training facility that have slowed the process down, he added. 

Despite its manpower squeeze, the Coast Guard is discharging members not compliant with the “unlawful” COVID vaccine mandate, the rescue swimmer told Just the News. The swimmer and his attorney R. Davis Younts argue that the COVID vaccines are experimental and cannot be lawfully ordered since the military has not made fully FDA-approved versions of the vaccines available to its members.

Younts told Just the News the Coast Guard accords his client the right to file a letter to challenge his discharge and ask to be retained, but that it means very little in practice, as the letter goes to the same authority that denied his RAR.

While the swimmer’s command could recommend retention based on the needs of the Coast Guard, Younts views that as unlikely given that it hasn’t happened in the other services. “Nobody has cared,” he said. 

The rescue swimmer told Just the News that the Coast Guard discharge would rob him of his pension, in addition to his current pay. Younts added that his client would lose medical care for his family. 

“I’m just lost and sick over it,” the swimmer said. The whole ordeal has been “very mentally draining,” he admitted, adding that while “this job requires mental toughness, which I have a vast quantity of,” the vaccine mandate has “really tested my mental fortitude in so many ways.”

The rescue swimmer said that he loves serving in the Coast Guard and loves his shipmates, vaccinated or not, and will continued to proudly serve alongside them until his last day, which could come within the next two months. Those in the service who have received the vaccine “feel for” those refusing the shot, “but everyone is handcuffed — there’s nothing that they can do,” he added.

“They’re just following orders,” he said. “It just pains me that more leaders can’t just stand up and speak on our behalf because they’re afraid themselves.”

Although litigation against the Coast Guard is pending, it’s uncertain how long it will take, said Younts. With no separation board hearings for the Coast Guard objectors, “These guys could be gone before getting to court,” he said, since “federal courts don’t move quickly, even in emergency situations like this.”

On Thursday, Liberty Counsel announced that it has filed an amended complaint in federal court seeking class action relief from the vaccine mandate for Coast Guard members who have been denied religious exemptions.

On Monday, the Coast Guard issued guidance on its mandate to “Commanders, Commanding Officers, and Officers-in-Charge in the field,” according to Younts, who provided the document, entitled “Command Toolkit — Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccinations Version 2.0,” to Just the News. Noting the guidance had been made public via numerous websites and online chats, he said, “I have verified its authenticity through multiple whistleblowers.”  

Under the new guidance: 

Coast Guard members must be vaccinated to be deployable. 

Coast Guard members who do not comply with the vaccine mandate “will be processed for separation.”

Non-compliant officers are not eligible for promotion. 

Advancements for enlisted service members are withheld until they’re complaint with the vaccine mandate (and they have to compete again for an advancement if not compliant by the advancement deadline). 

Service members within 180 days of separation or retirement can’t receive an exemption from the vaccine mandate. 

Coast Guard members who are in Duty Under Instruction Status (DUINS) will have to pay back the service, if they “are administratively separated” for refusing the vaccine. 

Younts explained that the last point means any Coast Guard member who received education or training paid for by the service or “received a bonus to extend their contract” for enlistment would have to repay the military branch. 

“For example, a Coast Guard Academy cadet or someone who had an ROTC scholarship would have to pay back the cost of their education,” he said. 

“The latest science and research shows that the vaccinations have waning efficacy while natural immunity may not,” Younts said. “It is impossible to justify this continued mandate and this action based on the current studies and science. There is simply no military readiness justification for continuing with a mandate.”

While the first page of the “toolkit” says it’s a guide, not binding policy, its intent is obvious, said Younts, explaining that the disclaimer is included “to avoid the appearance of telling commanders what to do.” 

Omitting comment on the new guidance, the Coast Guard told Just the News in a statement:

“The Coast Guard remains committed to protecting our service members, civilian employees, and families; safeguarding our national security capabilities; and supporting the whole-of nation response to the pandemic.

“Vaccination remains central to our efforts to defend against COVID-19 and maintain a mission-ready Coast Guard. All Coast Guard military members who do not fall within an approved exception must be vaccinated against COVID-19 or they will be involuntarily separated from the service.”

Today’s military officer corp should all get a blanket award for Stupidity and oak leaf clusters for Morale Cowardness for each time they failed to stand up their soldiers. Zero respect. Just following orders just does not cut it.

On a separate note, the religious objection is nice but conscientious objectors should also be recognized.

Highly important message today. One way in, one door. Thank you!

We are cautioned not to believe the world is out of control in The Word. What appears to us to be one way, is another in the hands of the Creator. He has sovereign control – Job 12:23 and Daniel 2:21. He grants man the power to make choices – Deut. 30:19. The choice of life and death, blessings and curses. He incorporates our choices into His perfect will for all of us and His creation.

Be not confused – 2 Peter 3:9 applies:

The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not willing for any to perish, but for all to come to repentance.

His sheep enter into his protection through the one door. The choices we may have once made may be different in the future when we repent and enter through the door of Jesus Christ. Truth is revealed through Him.

Be blessed our true friend, Bakocarl.

I appreciate the lessons and scripture from you, Bako, Duchess and others because it’s always hopeful and positive. I do confess though that it escapes me, the bottom line. Are we waiting on the Lord to right the wrongs worldwide or are we supposed to feel blessed because we see the wrongs and know that the afterlife by His grace is the reward ?

Is this wickedness put upon humans by the global governments the conclusion to man ruling man ? It feels to me that it’s an indiscernible message. Do we fight against it or just wait for some unknown number of people to repent ?

Global government IS the conclusion of man ruling man. It’s all very clear if you read Revelation that global government will eventually come and be the worst disaster ever to come upon the earth with a good 75% of humanity killed. Only when our Lord comes and establishes his Millennial Kingdom will that change. Whether we are almost there or not, I don’t know. And whether we’re called to fight it with every fiber of our being, I don’t know. But I do know that it will come.

mollypitcher5

Thanks for the reply. I can hope that the call to us is clear enough that we understand it otherwise we stay in this limbo pattern of seeing the evil but powerless to do anything.

Gail Combs

We are to FIGHT!!!

It is EVIL and we are to FIGHT EVIL!!!

Why do Christians want to lay down like DOOR MATS and ALLOW EVIL to KILL INNOCENTS and TORTURE TODDLERS?

“The youngest child we’ve rescued…was 2 years old. 34 men raped that 2-year-old over a 36-day period…. “When it comes to sex trafficking, you’ve got backroom deals, you’ve got plea deals, you’ve got misdemeanors.”

@BooyensJaco

He says sex #Trafficking laws are not being enforced in the US and now we have grade school teachers GROOMING KIDS!

mollypitcher5

That’s where it all gets murky to me…evil is evil and we’ve been endowed with innate morals whether they are validated by Biblical principles or not.
Fighting with words is proving to be futile.

TheseTruths

Fighting with words is proving to be futile.

I think we grossly underestimate the influence of our words. I am reminded of Thomas Paine and The American Crisis, and all the writings of the Founders and others throughout history. “The pen is mightier than the sword.”

When social media and bloggers and alternative news sites came on the scene, the mainstream media denounced them because they weren’t “journalists.” If the alternative writings were futile, the MSM wouldn’t have cared.

Twitter and other platforms block certain content. If it did not have influence, they would feel no need to block it.

By our words we show that people are not alone and that there is a huge group of us who stand for what is right. Q helped in that regard, uniting people around the country and the world. We don’t know who is reading and what might spark a revelation in someone’s thinking.

Gail Combs

Yes!

That is why I do my hunt and peck typing year after year.  🤓 

I have actually seen my comments show up in places I never heard of. We win the battle one mind at a time.

TheseTruths

My opinion: We try to live by all the principles of Scripture. We feel blessed as we comtemplate God’s goodness to us,, both now and in the afterlife. We give thanks even in the midst of troubles. We fight evil wherever it occurs. We have boundaries in our personal lives (not letting people touch us inappropriately, or take advantage of us in various ways, or invade our homes). Those boundaries extend to our communities (not letting them get trashed, fighting corrupt local governing bodies), our states, our country, and, to some extent, the world. We are not to hide our light under a bushel (Matt. 5:14-16) so people can see our good works and glorify our Father in Heaven. “Good works” includes fighting injustices and wrongs, trying to save those being trafficked and abused, and working toward good governance to promote peace.  

IMO, “wait on the Lord” does not mean to do nothing; it means to do what you know is right and what you feel led to do while acknowledging that your timeline, and even your will, might not exactly match His — but to continue to prayerfully seek His will, give thaniks, and “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

mollypitcher5

With all that in mind do you think the present situation is different than other times in history when men chose to take up arms to battle the forces that they deemed evil or is this era the last one to be God’s decision how to cleanse the earth ?
I’m not attempting to be tricky in questioning these things but I’m genuinely confused

TheseTruths

IMO the principles don’t change. I don’t believe we are being told to sit back and wait, and I don’t think the present time is different from other times in history. We are to be obedient to God and the principles found in Scripture, and that doesn’t change. We are to persevere to the end, and we don’t know when the end will be.

A question we all might ask ourselves: Why do I think/believe ____? Whose influence is causing me to think that? False prophets are everywhere, even among people we think are Christian ministers and apologists. It is common for people to declare things like “these are the end times.” It looks as if that is possible and even probable, but who knows how long that will go on? We have not been commanded to do nothing.

Scripture does not change, and God does not change (“the same yesterday, today, and forever”), so why would we think we should act differently today? Be wary of influencers, even those who appear to mean well.

mollypitcher5

Thank you for your perspective, appreciate it.
I think about this so much lately.

TheseTruths

Thank you. You gave me food for thought as well.

Linda

That’s where I’m at. I’m pretty convinced that we are very close, right at the door. That’s why I question what it is God wants us to do right now. And I don’t mean speaking out against evil and trying to stop it in the ways we can. We should always do that. I mean going much farther.

TradeBait2

I’m just staying out of God’s way the best I can. If it means going home sooner, let’s do it. But I will physically defend my loved ones, neighbor, community, the church, etc. until my last breath from evil in violation of God’s Word. I see too much evidence of God’s response to evil doers in the Old Testament in particular to believe we are to stand idly by and watch the innocent and weak be physically destroyed. Context is so very important in understanding the words and actions of Jesus. We mess it up a lot.

Gail Combs

“…Context is so very important in understanding the words and actions of Jesus. We mess it up a lot….”

And those who would lead us astray INTENTIONALLY mess it up because they want SHEEP they can enslave.

CHIPS

Schumer Strips Anti-China Security Provision From Major Semiconductor Bill

https://freebeacon.com/national-security/schumer-stripped-security-measure-from-china-bill-republicans-are-furious/

The Creating Helpful Incentives to Produce Semiconductors (CHIPS) for America Act,
Extracts:

> Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) removed an anti-China security measure from a bill that invests billions of dollars in the U.S. technology sector, a move Republicans say would allow China to benefit from the spending bill and could kneecap the legislation.

> At issue are provisions written by Sen. Rob Portman (R., Ohio) that bar U.S. companies from manufacturing products in China, such as semiconductors, that were developed using federally funded research.

Myriad government and private investigations conclude that the Chinese government routinely steals trade secrets from US companies, government agencies, and universities.

> The reason Schumer removed Portman’s anti-China provision is unclear. Some say he caved to lobbying efforts from various interest groups and the White House

> Even if it passes, the lack of meaningful guardrails against the Chinese raise grave questions about whether a bill initially meant to counter China may backfire.

The CHIPS Act puts a staggering $250 billion for domestic science investment and education, making it the largest domestic industrial investment scheme in U.S. history.

>Republicans say … the United States is losing its technological edge to China on such critical goods as semiconductors, … (but the bill) could end up benefiting adversaries.

> Legislators are talking about pouring hundreds of billions into industry subsidies and federal R&D, ostensibly to strengthen American competitiveness and to compete with China,

>…Spending that level of taxpayer dollars without meaningful safeguards to ensure they don’t end up in Beijing’s hands—either through Chinese Communist Party espionage, corporate malfeasance, or inept bureaucrats—would be a colossal mistake.”

>………the lack of guardrails means several Senate offices that were potential “Yes” votes on the CHIPS Act are working behind the scenes to tank it. Other senators, such as Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), are pushing for new guardrail provisions

> America needs to make things again, especially critical chips and other tech, but we need to do it in a way that benefits our country and our workers,” Rubio said.

“Unless we add meaningful safeguards in this package, we should call this for what it is: the China Investment Bill.”

Pelosi is deep into the Chips deal, with her husband’s trading being in the spotlight.

@ 51 minutes Gregg talks about the left sowing DIVISION. Then he talks about the Q autists and says he has been doing political research since 1982 and he thinks the Anons are BRILLIANT.

“…I know good research when I see it, and the open source research that is being gathered by the ANON community is SPECTACULARLY GOOD…”

As I said earlier today, Q was TRAINING open source researchers for the White Hats and NOW they are being put to work.

Gregg:

@ ~53 minutes he talks about the infiltrators sowing dissent to make the Patriots fight amongst themselves AND THEREFORE LOSE. We need to CRUSH the other side, not just beat them CRUSH THEM.

@ 56 Minutes Gregg EXPLAINS THE PATRIOT GAMES:

Gregg Paraphrased:

The left pulled crap at a Turning Point USA event in Tampa with Trump and DeSantis. Across the Street was an ‘anti-life’ pro-abortion rally that got violent and was dispersed by the cops. Within a few minutes, coming from the same direction the left just left from comes these guys with NAZI FLAGS and the media was trying to portray them as part of Turning point USA. And within a few minutes Whoopie Goldberg is on her show saying Turning Point USA brought the NAZIs out to defend them.

Well guess what. We have the GEO DATA, and we can tell you who these people are and we are going to track them down and we are going to follow their patterns of life and we are going to explain this to America and better than that we are going to bring the Anon researchers in and let them see HOW we do our Geo fencing, Let them see how we create the polygons and let them see what it looks like when you build a pattern of life.

EPSTEIN’S SEX CLIENTS: Gateway Pundit Files Legal Action to Unseal and Identify The Global Elite Scumbags That Abused Trafficked Minors

By Jim Hoft
Published July 29, 2022 at 8:00am

….Epstein famously died by “suicide” before he could go to trial. However, Ghislaine Maxwell was convicted of sex trafficking minors in December of 2021. No less than 23 women testified in court that Epstein trafficked and abused them. Four specifically testified they were abused by Maxwell as well.

           But even today, the identities of Epstein’s Sex Clients remain totally unknown. 

Stunningly, no media outlet in the country has petitioned the Court to unseal the identities of Epstein’s Clients.

Where are you, New York Times? Where are you, CNN? Where are you, Fox News?

It’s almost like corporate media is protecting the disgusting sexual abusers, simply because the victims alleged Epstein’s clients consisted of powerful businessmen, politicians, former presidents and prime ministers, and other world leaders.

Gateway Pundit lawyers Marc Randazza and Jay Wolman of the Randazza Legal Group, along with GP General Counsel John Burns filed a motion to intervene in the Guiffre v. Maxwell case in the United States District Court for the District of New York.

GP is asking the Court to unseal all records identifying Epstein’s Sex Clients. 

You can read a copy of the brief, here.

In cohesion with True the Vote’s founder, Catherine Engelbrecht, Phillips will present “devastating” information and evidence to a select group of invitees during an event called “The Pit.”

The information presented, Phillips said, will contain all the data that was left on the cutting room floor after filming their hit documentary with Dinesh D’Souza, “2000 Mules.”

“The part that was left out of the movie, we have available,” Phillips said. He added that there will be thousands of documents and “millions of minutes of video.”

This is the current state of affairs in airline situation.
Daughter and kids flew out of SC last night, connecting flight in Dallas. They got there, connecting flight cancelled. Weather fine. No return flight guaranteed, no compensation, no hotel arrangements…nada, nothing.

Only by luck her half sister lives in the area, took an expensive uber to her house. Today the one and only flight with seats even close to San Diego was into Orange County so she took that.

They really have destroyed the industry and I guess that’s another facet of the tyranny..we may not enjoy freedom to fly one day

RF121

Flying Friday. On the way to the Oakland airport I got a message from Delta that my flight was delayed. Would miss my connection in Salt Lake to Boise. Figured I would sort it out when I got there. Then got a call from Delta. They rebooked me from San Francisco to get to Boise and wanted to see if that would work. Yes it would.

Airlines are not perfect. Mechanicals happen. Weather on the other side of the country can impact your flight by delaying crew and planes. Many are still struggling with staffing and covid outbreaks. Some airlines handle these better then others. Choose wisely.

mollypitcher5

Yes I get all that but one can only choose according to what they offer and not everyone that is flying is a single adult able to take that alternate arrangement or split up the family on different flights.

Either “weather” has actually gotten significantly more dangerous or they have changed the accepted pilot capability to fly in/around bad weather because I’ve also been using air travel cross country for decades and only very rarely seen these kind of cancellations due to weather.

Shooting up pilots with poison or pilots and crew opting out of jabs for sure is impacting. Also employees across the business spectrum are using covid as their fail safe option for time off. All anyone need say…I have covid or I feel like I’m getting covid and days off are theirs, no real questions asked.

Just saying..the new normal for services/flights booked and paid for is becoming at your own risk..you might get where you paid to go, on the day you paid for OR you might not and don’t even think anyone cares.

Gail Combs

We as a people are being slowly TRAINED to accept crappy service, third rate food and cheap Chinese Schiff instead of QUALITY.

As a QC engineer I watched it happen slowly with the introduction of ISO 9000.

ISO 9000 Series of Standards – What is ISO 9000? | ASQ

Quality Glossary Definition: ISO 9000 series standards. ISO 9000 is defined as a set of international standards on quality management and quality assurance developed to help companies effectively document the quality system elements needed to maintain an efficient quality system. They are not specific to any one industry…

From my old notes:

Why did the Food Inspectors fail?

In a recent (2009) NY Times article, Food Problems Elude Private Inspectors, journalists speculated on how food safety auditors could give a “superior” rating to a production facility that a few months later would poison hundreds. Many people have noticed the increasing number of food-borne illnesses reported in the press, but no one has attempted to explain why it’s happening, how it can come about. Let me show you not only how it happens but how our present food safety system encourages similar situations.

To understand the problem it is necessary to look at the “Quality Revolution.” In the 1970s when I first started working in the quality field, Military. Standard 105D (it became 105E later) was often used to determine incoming inspection levels. Mil Spec 105Dwas a common-sense, statistics-based standard, appropriate to the military sense of getting things done correctly, and it saw wide use in industry. It provided methods to categorize vendors as good, average or below average. The customer could adjust the level of incoming inspection accordingly.

Dr. W. Edwards Deming, a mathematician doing research into quality, had been ignored by US business. He took his expertise to postwar Japan where his methods revolutionized quality. After superior Japanese quality flattened American business in the market place, Americans started searching for the “Magic Wand” that would allow them to compete, Several experts cashed in on this mad search. Joseph Juran, Armand Feigenbaum and Philip Crosby emerged as the leaders of the pack.

In 1987 the methods used by Deming and the other leaders were quantified as a set of quality manufacturing standards called ISO 9000. I was one of the first to get training in ISO 9000 here in the USA. I was impressed by the first half of the presentation and during break started discussing what I had learned with my seat-mate. He was not at all impressed. He was originally from Russia, and he told me that the Soviet Union had used the same kind of system for years, and that and it generated paperwork, not quality. Twenty years later I, along with other quality professionals, agree with him.

…”I’m wondering if there might be a silent majority of Quality [magazine] readers out there on the topic of ISO 9000. The response to my July editorial, “Eliminate ISO 9000?,” was the heaviest that we have received in some time…What surprised me is that the July editorial elicited no ardent rebuttals in defense of ISO 9000...”

 http://www.qualitymag.com/Articles/Letters_From_the_Editor/65730ee7f4c38010VgnVCM100000f932a8c0

Bean counters, looking only for immediate additional profit, found some of the concepts of ISO 9000 very attractive:
  1. Do not duplicate effort by repeating testing that’s already been done. This means that incoming inspection can be eliminated, saving some labor.
  2. Develop a relationship with a single source instead of wasting resources on qualifying several sources
  3. Use “Just In Time.” Since the source is prequalified, the raw materials can arrive on the same day as needed, eliminating warehouses and jobs.

The third item is particularly interesting. If the method fails, that is, if the supposedly prequalified material is no good, there might be no choice but to use it anyway! The result can be anywhere from a minor inconvenience to a total disaster.

So what does this have to do with the peanut fiasco? First, because of the “Quality Revolution” a version of ISO was developed for the food industry. It was called HACCP and was published as an international standard in 1993 by Codex Alimentarius. In 1995 Mil Std 105E was declared obsolete and in 1996 HACCP was adopted by the USDA.

Pathogen Reduction/Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) Systems rule, on July 25, 1996:

Under the HACCP rule, industry is responsible for assessing potential food safety hazards and systematically preventing and controlling those hazards. FSIS [Food Safety Inspection Service] is responsible for verifying that establishments’ HACCP systems are working ..www.fsis.usda.gov/PDF/Evolution_of_RBI_022007.pdf

Notice how this ruling has shifted the focus of audits, both government and private, from testing for contamination to the paperwork documenting the “Quality Management System”. Secondly, rigorous incoming inspection has been drastically cut‒if not eliminated‒by the companies that receive raw materials. In buying peanuts from the vendor Kellog relied only on a third-party auditor who reported on the integrity of the suppler. Twenty or thirty years earlier Kellog would have sent their own quality professional to work at the vendor’s facility.

If the “Quality Revolution” worked so well for the Japanese, why isn’t it working in the USA? There are several reasons. First is the Japanese sense of honor, ethics and integrity. Deceitfulness is frowned upon and results in a loss of face and disgrace to the family.. Secondly, Japan is a small country so word of deceitfulness spreads easily.. In the USA a slick salesmen who lies to get sales is likely to be praised and held up as an example to new salesmen. The US has a very mobile population, there are always new suckers moving into the community . A scoundrel can relocate to any of forty nine other states.

Another problem, according to quality expert Kaoru Ishikawa, is America’s regulations of business that give tremendous importance to each company’s quarterly results. He claims that the result is short-sightedness.

mollypitcher5

Great set of facts ^^^^^

barkerjim

When we were going through ISO 9000 certification, one of the auditors stated that they didn’t care what we were making. It could be complete shit as long as it was documented properly, we would pass.

cthulhu

Another aspect to ISO 9000 relates to the concept of “headcount”. If you document everyone’s job properly, so the story goes, you don’t need experienced or talented people — you can just treat them all the same. If you want a thousand widgets, you can print a thousand copies of the instructions and hand them out randomly to people — the guys who normally build the widgets, the guys who normally build other widgets, random bums off the street…. And if you only need to build 800 widgets, you can lay off 1/5 of your workforce and print only 800 sets of instructions.

cthulhu

I should note that Sarbanes-Oxley walked the same path with financial accounting.

Gail Combs

Yes, I noticed that too. It used to be a corporation would look at your POTENTIAL and hire someone they planned to train and keep. Now it is just raid the other guy, hire a foreigner or an ‘Affirmative Action’ idiot.

Worse they expect to have the older guy they are going to lay off TRAIN the idiot.

cthulhu

It’s also just as easy to print the instructions in Spanish or Mandarin as it is in English.

cthulhu

There was also the overt cult-like nature of ISO certification. First thing you had to do to get YOUR ISO was convince your suppliers to get THEIRS.

And this is nonsense on stilts because tracing every supplier of every supplier eventually leads you to some poor stiff out in the middle of nowhere trying to wrestle value out of dirt — and his methods aren’t likely to be susceptible to documentation.

cthulhu

This somewhat follows the story “I, pencil”.

https://mises.org/library/i-pencil

No one person knows how to make a pencil. So, how ’bout we force pencil-sellers to document what they do….then (as their major suppliers), we’ll force the paint-makers, lead-makers, wood-shapers, and glue-producers to document what they do….and, then, when we finally execute our mad plan to kill off 90% of the world’s population, we’ll be able to reconstruct how to make pencils.

Naming Things
By Clarice Feldman

https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2022/07/naming_things.html

In Genesis, Adam names all the creatures of the earth. “God formed out of the earth all the wild beasts and all the birds of the sky and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that would be its name.” There are lots of explanations for why this is significant, depending on your theological viewpoint. To me naming things is not insignificant in everyday life. How you call something shapes the meaning in your mind and manipulates your point of view.

Years ago, when I represented workers who were challenging their union’s leadership, the wise lawyer who worked with us (someone who had earlier honed his trade working for FDR and General MacArthur) cautioned me to be careful how we described ourselves — we were to fashion our movement Reform Miners, not rebels, insurgents or anything else. Repeated often enough by us in interviews and in litigation papers that’s what the press would call us and that was to our advantage in the public mind.

I’ve been disappointed in the way Lin Wood handles being attacked. He says he prays for those he calls his enemies, and then he talks about them in a passive-aggressive way and won’t let it go. I have not wanted to believe the worst about him because I haven’t ever caught him in a lie (but I also don’t know everything to be able to evaulate it).

How do we know Buck Nasty is ANTIFA? I’m not doubting it could be possible; I just would like to see the evidence. If that were proven, it would be huge. Then Wood should be confronted with that evidence.

A meme or clip of people shooting each other, especially people who are supposedly on the same side, is inappropriate and divisive to post, whether he made it himself or not.

Wood is suspicious of some people, and justifiably so, IMO. But he takes it too far. He calls anyone who hasn’t made fixing 2020 their signature issue, a communist. That includes Ron DeSantis and Marjorie Taylor Greene. I understand the point, but I don’t think you can make blanket conclusions like that.

I’m not ready to call him a Deep Stater yet, but the divisiveness is poison.

” …How do we know Buck Nasty is ANTIFA?…”

In the Matrixxx (Jeff) did not get into that, but it may be thru Pinata Farm’s information since Buck Nasty is using their website or Gregg Phillips given Gregg’s expressed concern about the infighting.

I should add that Jeff’s concern is about Pinata Farm and he sees this as an ATTACK on that app that is used to make memes.

In the comment is this:

Lin Wood is a leftist shill. He’s responsible for Nikki Fried in Florida. “Buck Nasty” is a one Mr. Fletcher of Oviedo Florida. A man with a cocaine habit so bad his own wife left him. Keep it up Mr. Fletcher and you and your buddy Luigi DiGenerro are about to have all their bullshit catch up with them. Keep it up

Remember that Lin Wood was telling people NOT TO VOTE in the Georgia run-off and that is why the Repubs lost the Senate.

Lin Wood is a LOON.

The man is certifiable. I’ve said so for a while.

If he’s a plant, it’s a psychedelic mushroom. Completely tripping out.

He needs a straight jacket and some Lithium or something.

Strange story from the same day they overturned Roe. I dug around further and found both the jockey and horse were not hurt badly, though the jockey has to get a concussion test before he can ride again. https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2022/07/cant-make-horse-named-heavenly-trump-wins-lead-horse-hits-rail-jockey-flips-off-rail-onto-track-video/

Seems divinely auspicious.
Did the demoncrats blame it on the Russians yet?

Wolf Moon and all —
Yours Truly has been another rabbit hole of the Pfizer-BioNTech documents data dump. The document summarized below, IMO, is a real “smoking gun” about how the company connived its way to “win” the “let’s make a vaccine against COVID-19” game. Please bear with me — Yours Truly believes this is one of the most shocking documents about what Pfizer-BioNTech was doing.

The URL to the document PDF:
http://www.icandecide.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/03/5.3.6-postmarketing-experience.pdf
All are welcome to read this document. If Yours Truly missed something, or misinterpreted anything that appears in the summary below, please add or correct.
The document above is on Page 15 of the I Can Decide Pfizer-BioNTech data dumps list.
It’s called “5.3.6 CUMULATIVE ANALYSIS OF POST-AUTHORIZATION ADVERSE EVENTS REPORTS OF PF-07302048 (BNT162B2) RECEIVED THROUGH 28-FEB-2021”

The 38-page report was done by “Worldwide Safety Pfizer”. The FDA file number is FDA-CBER-2021-5683-0000091.

The report was done in response to an FDA request for more information of 9 March 2021 regarding “cumulative post-authorization safety data, including U.S. and foreign post-authorization experience…” Apparently, the agency wasn’t satisfied with initial data given to it by Pfizer-BioNTech in the company’s 4 February 2021 proposal for a BLA (Biological License Application) for “investigational COVID-19 (BNT12b2).” The company submitted all required BLA data in May, 2021, and the FDA did a “priority review” in July, 2021. The FDA granted “full approval” for the company’s German version of the vaccine, called COMIRNATY, in July, 2021 — but did NOT grant “full approval” to BNT162b2. This is because BNT162b2 is still in clinical trials until 2024.

Brief summaries of the Cumulative Analysis document:
Pfizer-BioNTech makes it clear that it alone will perform the management of the post-authorization safety data (page 5 of the report). Pull quote: “All reporting of AE’s [Adverse Events] was to Pfizer.” Reports are “submitted voluntarily, and the magnitude of underreporting is unknown.”

Page 9: “An accumulation of adverse event reports (AERs) does not necessarily indicate that a particular AE was caused by the drug;…”
Then — “Due to the large numbers of adverse event reports received for the product, the MAH [Marketing Authorization Holder — BioNTech] has prioritized the processing of serious cases, in order to meet expedited regulatory reporting timelines…” (translation: too many AE’s were reported for BNT162b2, so Pfizer-BioNTech pushed through case processing in order to get the BLA done)

Through 28 February 2021, a total of 42,086 case reports processed by the company contained 158,893 adverse events related to the use of BNT162b2. (Recall that the company stated that “the magnitude of underreporting is unknown.”)

Page 11: “Table 5. Important Potential Risks” — Pull quote: “An expected rate of VAED [Vaccine-Associated Enhanced Disease] is difficult to establish so a meaningful observed / expected analysis cannot be conducted at this point based on available data.” (Note the use of “expected rate of VAED” — Pfizer-BioNTech knew this was going to happen)

The “real skinny” starts on page 17, the evaluation of Adverse Events of Special Interest: Table 7. AESIs Evaluation for BNT162b2″.
Going down the list of AE’s through “Anaphylaxis” through “Cardiovascular”, “Hepatic”, “Facial Paralysis” and the rest, IT APPEARS THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE NUMBER OF AE CASES, AND NO MATTER WHAT THE OUTCOMES, INCLUDING DEATHS, the “Conclusion” at the end of each type of case IS THE SAME: “…does not raise new safety issues. Surveillance will continue.”
Even with the STROKE adverse events, called “all serious” by the company, the “Conclusion” is THE SAME as the above.

Page 29: “5. SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION”
“Review of the available data for this cumulative PM [post-marketing] experience, confirms a favorable benefit : risk balance for BNT162b2.”

Page 30: “APPENDIX 1. LIST OF ADVERSE EVENTS OF SPECIAL INTEREST”
This is the alphabetical list of all AE’s that were reported. It goes on for pages.

IMO, this report is d@mning for not only Pfizer-BioNTech, but also for the FDA. The FDA knew that BNT162b2 was a dangerous “vaccine” that was using an unproven mRNA technology. Based on the above report alone, the FDA was duty-bound to reject the company’s BLA and send the entire process back to the drawing board. But the FDA also knew that the company’s German version of the “vaccine”, COMIRNATY, had already been “fully approved” for use in the EU and other countries by the European Medicine Agency. So, the FDA issued “full approval” for COMIRNATY in the U.S., while “extending” the EUA it had already granted for BNT162b2.
