On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up

God Controls

God is in charge

God is in complete control of the universe. A belief in God’s control is distinct from fatalism, which denies human free will. Humans are able to make genuine choices that have real consequences. God does not directly cause everything to happen, yet He does allow all that occurs to happen. And, ultimately, God’s will is going to be accomplished. At first, these statements may seem unimportant to our daily lives and better suited for an esoteric theological discussion. However, God’s control is practical and has a significant impact on our daily lives.

God’s plan and will impacts everyday life in that they remove all cause for worry. We can trust that what the Bible claims about God’s character is backed up by His ability. Not only does God love us, but He has the ability to care for us. Those who are part of the family of God can claim the promise in Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” We can rest in the fact that our God is actually able to work all things for our good, even when we cannot readily see how that may happen.

God’s control impacts everyday life in that we can trust God’s sanctifying work in us. Many times Christians feel that maturing in the faith is completely up to them, as if God saves us and then expects us to do the rest. We Christians do play a role in our own maturity. We are certainly called to obedience, and what we do matters and has consequences. However, in recognizing that God is sovereign, we also trust Him to bring us to maturity (see Galatians 3:3 and Philippians 1:6).

Looking to Romans 8 again, we read, “For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified. What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us” (Romans 8:29–34).

Our salvation has been God’s sovereign plan from eternity past. Rather than focus on our own performance, we can rest in the character of God and focus instead on actually getting to know Him.

God’s control also affects how we make decisions. We recognize that God is in control, so we don’t need to be paralyzed by decision-making. If we make the wrong decision, all is not lost. We can trust in God’s faithfulness and His ability to set us back on the right course.

We can and should make decisions. God’s control doesn’t mean that we sit idly by and allow life to happen. It means we can go bravely into life, trusting that our loving Father sees the larger picture and is faithfully working everything for His glory.

God’s control impacts our sense of identity. When we understand how powerful God is and how much He loves us, we can know we are secure in Him. As the objects of God’s sovereign love, we allow God to define us and give us our worth rather than look to the changing ideals of the world. When we understand that God is in complete control, we are freed to live our lives. We don’t need to fear ultimate failure or final destruction (Romans 8:1).

We don’t need to fear worthlessness. We can be confident that God will have His way and that it will be good. We can trust that the One who says He loves us is fully able to act on that love in all ways. We can trust that, even when the world seems completely out of control, God is in control. We know He has the big picture covered, so we can trust Him with our daily details.


I hold a simple view of God being in control.

God has the power . . . He spoke the whole universe into existence.

God has the knowledge . . . He knows the number of hairs on our heads and declares the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done.

God has the will to act . . . His counsel shall stand, and He will accomplish all His purpose, and not even a sparrow will fall to earth outside His will.

God has our best interest in mind . . . His plans for us are for good and not for disaster, to give us a future and a hope, and God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

For what more could we ask?


Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous!
For praise from the upright is beautiful.
Praise the Lord with the harp;
Sing to Him with an instrument of ten strings.
Sing to Him a new song;
Play skillfully with a shout of joy.

For the word of the Lord is right,
And all His work is done in truth.
He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.

By the word of the Lord the heavens were made,
And all the host of them by the breath of His mouth.
He gathers the waters of the sea together [b]as a heap;
He lays up the deep in storehouses.

Let all the earth fear the Lord;
Let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of Him.
For He spoke, and it was done;
He commanded, and it stood fast.

The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing;
He makes the plans of the peoples of no effect.
The counsel of the Lord stands forever,
The plans of His heart to all generations.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,
The people He has chosen as His own inheritance.

The Lord looks from heaven;
He sees all the sons of men.
From the place of His dwelling He looks
On all the inhabitants of the earth;
He fashions their hearts individually;
He understands all their works.

No king is saved by the multitude of an army;
A mighty man is not delivered by great strength.
A horse is a false hope for safety;
Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope in His mercy,
To deliver their soul from death,
And to keep them alive in famine.

Our soul waits for the Lord;
He is our help and our shield.
For our heart shall rejoice in Him,
Because we have trusted in His holy name.
Let Your mercy, O Lord, be upon us,
Just as we hope in You.

Psalm 33

There are some hints in recent events that perhaps God’s Plan isn’t as obscure as some would say.

wowohwow1528

It would be awesome.

wowohwow1528

Awesome, I love watching dogs do those things.

My son and daughter-in-law rescued a chocolate lab, her name is Piper. She was abandoned, they think the person who owned her passed away and their family didn’t want to deal with her as she had learned behaviors that were indulgent/overwhelming. She was picked up walking the streets and taken to the rescue. She’s been a lot of work but slowly but surely she’s getting there. She’s a big dog, exuberant and a bit slobbery 💦 but she has a good heart/disposition. Their cat, Enzo endures Piper but he also has a cat escape hole 🕳 to run to when Piper attempts to have share some “quality” time.
.. unfortunately Piper fits through the escape hole 🕳 …

cthulhu

I’ve been thinking of Gail lately, but I can well understand why she’s been busy.

Hope she’s okay.

I’m pretty sure she is — it’s a very busy time for her on the farm.

I’ve seen bumper stickers and yard signs…but typically only when I go downtown.

singingsoul1

No one has yard signs out no one wants to be bothered by loonies. Normally the republicans have signs out and the democrats. Even the ardent democrats crickets. This is going to be an interesting election. Our poling station has moved to a church that too will be interesting. My husband an I vote on the 8th. All those who are not voting I call freeloaders and if they complain about the way the country is going I tell them there are part of the problem.
The RNC called my husband unloaded on them. They will never call back. My husband is never that angry as I have seen him on the phone. People are stressed.
I gave all the problems into God’s hands and do my part when needed

Barb Meier

I kept my yard signs up from 2020. Someone had to do it…  😊

Several 2020 remain from 2020. Some updated with Trump 2024, FJB… 🙂

That is smart and you have good neighbor

Plenty of signs out this way. No one bothers with them.

Partially attribute this to small town, rural area. D-Rats in a minority.

Simone, Simply The Best of all time, is an understatement.

In my uninformed opinion, Simone was unfairly dissed in a recent Olympics.

So, for music, let’s stick with Pomplamoose (which means “grapefruit” in French). This song was done just as the ridiculous COVID BS was closing down the country.

A very great cover of that one. And it made me want to listen to THIS ONE!  😉 

cthulhu

Oh, what the heck…..Pomplamoose in three languages….

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Cultural Marxism in three languages!  😉 

cthulhu

Yeah, well, the individual songs are not as wholesome as one might prefer….but the showmanship in melding them is admirable. Furthermore, it highlights how much California ends up with Spanglish.

cthulhu
cthulhu

As a little linguistic peculiarity, one cannot say “I like XXXX” in Spanish. Instead, one says “To me, is pleasing XXXX”. If you say, “Me gusta este perro”, it means, “To me, is pleasing this dog”. If you say, “Me gustas tu”, it means “to me, is pleasing you (familiar)”. If you say “Me gustan esos gatos”, it means “to me, are pleasing, those cats.” The verb “gustar” — to be pleasing — is conjugated depending on who is doing the pleasing rather than who is doing the liking.

Similarly, you can flip things around and ask, “Te gusto?” — which would mean, “to you (familiar), am I pleasing?” Or maybe “Se gusta eso mesa?” — which would mean “to you (polite), is pleasing that table?”

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Russian is similar. “Mnye nravits” — to me, (it) appeals.

You also don’t “have” something, it’s “by” you: “U mena khleb” (by me is bread).

Now THAT is interesting.

Speaking of God being in control, let’s talk about “free will”.

Does it exist? Sabine thinks that not only does it not exist – it’s not a problem!

Maybe! Or maybe the frame is like those awesome “edge-in-view” frames that hold the paintings where you can’t see the holding easily!  😍 

wowohwow1528

Bwahahahahaha … and 😫 …

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I personally think that her viewpoint is MORE compatible with Christianity than standard “free will” as people tend to think about it, because it mixes the ideas of sin, choice and predestination in a logical way that leaves God in control.

The normal idea of free will throws up its hands about the mysteries of these things in a probabilistic approximation of equivalent pathways by hypothesizing that equivalence without evidence and calling it “free will”, but IMO by saying “not so fast – there are increasingly complicated choices and YOU make mistakes in deviating from ‘God’s will’ by the ‘temptations of errors’, most of Christian philosophy fits very comfortably.

I’m not sure if she’s religious or not, but if so, then I think she’s like me – trusting that if we pursue reality and God is real, God will be that sticky remainder that washes clean at the end. In other words, faith!

wowohwow1528

Ok this makes sense to me W0lf .. thanks 🙂🤚

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

No problem!

I watched her very critically for signs that what she was thinking was incompatible with either my views of science or with Christian doctrine, and in the end, it washed clean with both!

Tonawanda

If I were a younger man, I would love to have a beer with Sabine. Probably peculiar, but there is something appealing to me about her immobile face and clenched teeth manner of expression, especially because she will always throw in a hilarious aside delivered in the identical manner, showing she has a wonderful sense of humor.

This really fits in well with Bakocarl’s (as usual, wonderful) post.

It was just recently, maybe ten years back, where I learned to trust Jesus about worry (although it does not stop me as much as I would like, a function of life-long worry habits).

Having spent a lifetime thinking about free will and the thousand other natural shocks that the mind is heir to, things resolved themselves for me over a number of years. I started from a good place, which was the utterly firm conviction that I knew nothing, and would never know anything, let alone comprehend all the questions of physics and metaphysics which are currently understood by nobody, and will (IMO) never be understood.

The primary issue to be resolved is whether Jesus existed as an historical person, as a matter of fact. Not that he existed as he is presented in Scripture, but just that he existed.

The question was not, and is not, an open and shut case, but one which requires a degree of dedication to understand the issues involved. No point in going through what each person must go through for himself (or not), but I became satisfied that Jesus was an historic person. The existence of The Gospels and Epistles (excluding the “message”), and the history of early Christianity were relevant to my understanding.

Having persuaded myself beyond a reasonable doubt that Jesus was a man, I then considered (not sequentially, but as part of the process) whether the message was also “factual,” in the sense that the message transmitted in the Gospels, Epistles, and tradition accurately reflected what Jesus the human conveyed while here on Earth. This process also required dedication, and I do not mind saying, as part of the process I asked God, if He existed, to help me in understanding. It seemed only fair to me in this respect to keep an open mind, even to God, if He existed.

I persuaded myself that the Gospels, Epistles, and tradition accurately reflected the message Jesus conveyed. Again, no point in going through my thought process, it is one any interested person must go through.

And just parenthetically, the Shroud of Turin played zero role in my thought process. Many Christians get perturbed at the very mention of the Shroud. So be it. To me, the Shroud is beyond a reasonable doubt the burial cloth of Jesus. I have spent a lot of time studying the Shroud.

I am going to say something I have only said once before on this site, and will say here once again, but think is wise to avoid saying or even implying usually. I have spent a lifetime understanding what is meant by the phrase “reasonable doubt.” It took me many years to grasp it’s profound meaning. All the legal instructions in the world can hardly convey its meaning because it requires experience and contemplation. I do not lightly say I was persuaded beyond a reasonable doubt.

To me, the Shroud is a beautiful, wondrous gift from God to me and others who have studied the issue who have been similarly persuaded. It is a miraculous corroboration which could not have been understood until a century and a few decades ago, and which has been studied with the most modern scientific methods, defying all attempts at debunking. The evidence is vast, and also requires dedication, but it is there.

But I do have a point with all of this. Two points, actually.

One, assuming that Jesus was Who He said He was, (an assumption based on my conclusions), what Jesus says took/takes on an entirely different understanding and perspective, including His words about worry, anxiety, and God’s love for us all. Like the me of old, I still know nothing on my own, and cannot know anything on my own, but the Truth of what Jesus has said to us, I do know.

Two, assuming again that Jesus was Who He said He was, issues like “free will” resolve themselves easily. I am not saying it is wrong to discuss free will, or predestination, or epistemology, or cosmology, I just do not worry about it, the rightness or wrongness of it, or the actual truth of it. There is an actual truth of it, that I know, but I will never comprehend all of it, because I do know nothing on my own. And I have no anxiety about not comprehending it.

And just to add an observation I make every year around this time. To me, Christmas music is a Divinely inspired gift to me, the individual me, as it is (or can be) for anyone. There is something beautifully other-worldly (to me) about Christmas music, as if God was speaking to me directly. There is zero special about me in that, I just happen to accept the gift.

It will be very interesting to see what a meritocracy will mean for Twitter!

Hopefully there are some “forensic anticommunists” in the Tesla team that’s investigating the existing state of things.

Aubergine

If it’s truly a meritocracy, then the leftist idiots educated by public schools and universities in the last twenty years stand no chance.

Twitter will be run by 50+ year old Conservatives.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

There were likely a lot of very capable people who were FIRED, MARGINALIZED, and PUSHED TO RETIRE over the last 15 years, and especially over the last few years. They will be in the records that Musk now owns.

Maybe he will hire them back. That would be good.

The transgender movement is a test by the world rulers too test the power/strength of their propaganda and mind control.

They know if they can force us to abandon observable reality and such simple science and replace it with absolute nonsense and imagination. They can make entire populations believe anything they want..

If they can manipulate us to accept and even promote the destruction of our children’s mental health. They can do literally anything, and shield themselves with the ignorance of people who will defend anything under the guise of bigotry, racism, or a so called type of phobia.

When talking about the idea of change, Desmond Tutu once said that “there is only one way to eat an elephant: a bite at a time.”



Aubergine

This is unnatural. Unreal.

I know there is such a thing as a “widow-maker” heart attack. It happens. But like this? No warning, no hand to the chest, nothing?

This is something else. Of course, we know it is the jab.

I have yet to hear a theory that I accept about what is actually happening during these heart attacks. It seems like the electrical activity that drives the heart just stops, and CANNOT be restarted. There have been cases where a defibrillator is available and used immediately to no effect.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

One theory would be that those massive insoluble clots come loose and just block something.

Another is that the jab is particularly good at a kind of silent damage that progresses quietly until the heart is literally on its last legs, and just dies in a way that cannot be revived.

Whatever it is, it’s something quite different from most prior disease states that our medicine is used to dealing with.

I think it’s the clots, and that is why the evil ones in control, turned against aspirin around the same time that it was discovered that aspirin reduced hospitalization and death from COVID by over 40% (which happened near the beginning of the phony pandemic).

Aubergine

Good analysis.

Cuppa Covfefe

The fellow that advocates D-Dimer tests to look for the microclots said that the electrophysiological problems (conduction errors, etc.) that occur due to the clot-shot DO NOT act the same as congenital or even idiopathic conduction problems.

Seems the clot shots are damaging nerves and conductive tissues, which would fit with the reports of nerve sheath damage occurring as a side-effect ot the slab-jab as well. Not to mention all the auto-immune diseases, etc., and recurrences of long-dormant maladies (e.g shingles)…

Aubergine

This sounds right to me. The conductive material can no longer support the signal. The heart just stops. Thanks!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

And cannot restart!

Aubergine

I have to fact-check this. Their method for determining this is flawed.

They are using the Wayback Machine. But no activity on Wayback just means the website wasn’t archived.

I went to Whois. This tracks who owns websites, when they were started, etc. Every website is tracked there.

frenlyfrens.com was started 9 August 2022 by David Depape:

https://www.whois.com/whois/frenlyfrens.com

Godisloving.wordpress is more difficult to trace this way, because it is a WordPress account. Checking the URL at Whois just leads to WordPress. So that one I can’t tell when it was started.

This doesn’t mean that the content on these sites wasn’t manipulated to form a narrative. It does mean that at least one of them has been around for a few months.

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.

I hold a simple view of God being in control.
God has the power . . . He spoke the whole universe into existence.
God has the knowledge . . . He knows the number of hairs on our heads and declares the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done.
God has the will to act . . . His counsel shall stand, and He will accomplish all His purpose, and not even a sparrow will fall to earth outside His will.
God has our best interest in mind . . . His plans for us are for good and not for disaster, to give us a future and a hope, and God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. 
For what more could we ask?

Thank you Carl

“After the repulse on October 29 of this year of a terrorist attack on the ships of the Black Sea Fleet and civilian vessels involved in ensuring the security of the “grain corridor”, the wreckage of naval unmanned vehicles used by the Kiev regime under the leadership of representatives of Great Britain was discovered and brought to the surface.

Specialists of the Russian Ministry of Defense, together with representatives of other government agencies, conducted an examination of Canadian-made navigation modules installed on marine unmanned vehicles. According to the results of the recovery of information read from the memory of the navigation receiver, it was found that the launch of marine unmanned vehicles was carried out from the coast near the city of Odessa.

In the future, the sea drones moved through the security zone of the “grain corridor”, after which they changed the route in the direction of the Russian base of the ships in Sevastopol. At the same time, the coordinates of the movement of one of the marine drones indicate the starting point in the sea area of the security zone of the “grain corridor” in the Black Sea.

According to experts, this may indicate the preliminary launch of this device from aboard one of the civilian vessels chartered by Kiev or its Western patrons for the export of agricultural products from the seaports of Ukraine.”

“Summary of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on the progress of a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine (30.10.2022)

Part 1 (see part 2)

The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation continue to conduct a special military operation.

In the Kupyansk direction, the enemy, with up to two battalion tactical groups reinforced by foreign mercenaries, launched seven unsuccessful attacks on the positions of Russian troops in the areas of Pershotravnevoye, Orlyanka, Tabayevka and Berestovoye settlements of the Kharkiv region. By artillery fire, air strikes and active actions of Russian troops, the AFU units were pushed back to their original lines. Up to 250 Ukrainian servicemen and militants, one tank, six infantry fighting vehicles, four armored personnel carriers and eight cars were destroyed.

In the Krasno-Limansky direction, the enemy tried to conduct offensive operations with two company tactical groups in the direction of the settlements of Stelmakhovka, Makeyevka and Chervonopopovka of the Luhansk People’s Republic. All attacks are repelled. Artillery fire and army aviation strikes destroyed more than 50 Ukrainian servicemen, one tank, two infantry fighting vehicles and one armored personnel carrier.

In the South Donetsk direction, units of Russian troops during offensive operations destroyed the enemy in the areas of the settlements of Novomikhailovka and Vladimirovka of the Donetsk People’s Republic, and also captured a number of strong points and commanding heights. During the offensive, assault detachments of Russian troops advanced more than three kilometers into the depth of the enemy’s defense and reached the southern outskirts of the settlement of Pavlovka, Donetsk People’s Republic. More than 100 Ukrainian servicemen, one tank, three armored fighting vehicles and six pickups were destroyed. Six Ukrainian servicemen surrendered, one Ukrainian tank was captured.

https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/14.0.0/svg/25fd.svg In the Mykolaiv-Krivoy Rog direction, the AFU launched three unsuccessful attacks by company tactical groups in the direction of the settlements of Pyatikhatki, Chervoniy Yar, Ishchenko of the Kherson region. As a result of the fire defeat and decisive actions of the Russian units, the enemy was thrown back to the initial lines. In addition, 13 enemy reserve concentration areas were defeated. More than 180 Ukrainian servicemen, 11 armored combat vehicles and 21 vehicles were destroyed.

Operational-tactical and army aviation, rocket troops and artillery hit the AFU communications center near the settlement of Belyaevka, Kherson region, an ammunition depot near Kupyansk, Kharkiv region, as well as 68 artillery units in firing positions, manpower and military equipment in 189 districts. >>>  😀 In the area of the city of Ochakov, the Mykolaiv region, a blow was struck at the training center of the special operations forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.  😀 <<<

During the counter-battery struggle in the area of the settlement of Shevchenkovka, Kherson region, an artillery battery of American M777 howitzers was hit. In the area of the city of Zaporozhye, two launchers of the American multiple launch rocket system “HIMARS” were hit. In the area of the settlement of Meshkovo-Pogorelovo, Mykolaiv region, the launcher of the German multiple rocket launcher system “MARS-2″ and a warehouse of rocket and artillery weapons were destroyed. Also, in the area of the settlement of Nikolaevka of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the American radar station of counter-battery warfare AN/TPQ-37 was destroyed.

Fighter aircraft shot down a helicopter Mi-8 of the Ukrainian Air Force near the village of Dudchany, Kherson region.”

http://www.theburningplatform.com/2022/10/30/systemic-reactions-to-covid-vaccines-now-being-sold-to-public-as-a-feature/
by Madhava Setty, MD (senior science editor of Children’s Health Defense)
Yours Truly; Dr. Setty’s article is about the new push for people to “accept” any systemic reactions they get after taking a COVID-19 “vaccine” as “proof” that the “vaccine” is “working” [in other words, forcing the recipient’s body to produce huge amounts of antibodies against the spike protein in the “vaccine.”]
In fact, the FDA itself issued a directive to healthcare professionals as follows:
to “not interpret the results of qualitative, semi-quantitive, or quantitive SARS-CoV-2 antibody tests as an indication of a specific level of immunity or protection from SARS-CoV-2 infection after the person has received a COVID-19 vaccination.”
(http://www.fda.gov/medical-devices/safety-communications/antibody-testing-not-currently-recommended-assess-immunity-after-covid-19-vaccination-fda-safety; updated August, 2022)
Dr. Setty asks many pointed questions in his article about the COVID-19 “vaccines”, the “new booster shots” that were authorized this summer. There are links to a couple of articles at Children’s Health Defense, one of which is from August 2022: https://childrenshealthdefense.org/defender/pfizer-bivalent-covid-vaccine-mice/. In this article, Dr. Setty asks the following: “What is in the vaccine that they [the CDC / FDA] are desperate to inject us with?”
This question is of particular interest since the “new COVID-19 + Omicron BA.4 + Omicron BA.5 booster shot” contains the mRNA-based spike protein from the original Wuhan strain of the virus — a strain which is no longer in general circulation. This Wuhan strain spike protein is present in BOTH the Pfizer-BioNTech AND in the Moderna “new booster shot” formulations.
And, let it not be lost in the discussion that scientists at the NIAID-built and funded Infectious Diseases Studies lab at Boston University just cobbled together a VERY LETHAL NEW VIRUS composed of the spike protein from the Wuhan strain + the spike protein in the Omicron BA.1 variant — and that Pfizer-BioNTech has an ONGOING clinical trial for a “vaccine” for JUST THAT COMBINATION.
https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT05472038
(the Wuhan strain + Omicron BA.1 variant combo virus “vaccine” is one of the ones being tested in this study)
Yours Truly is going to posit something that may be uncomfortably close to the truth, based on the 2 1/2+ years of research one has performed on COVID-19 and on the “vaccines” — stay with me here. IMO, there’s something in the mRNA-based spike protein of the Wuhan strain of COVID-19 in the Pfizer-BioNTech original COVID-19 “vaccine”, BNT162b2 (still used as a “primary series vaccine” all over the world) — perhaps “enhanced” from the original spike protein itself — that’s the root cause of the blood clots / heart issues / brain issues / autoimmune issues / strokes / fetal and neonatal issues and deaths, and on and on, in people who get this “vaccine.” One is starting to become convinced that THIS is why “they” are desperate to keep people injected with “vaccines” having this particular mRNA-based spike protein.
IMO, the connection here is to the paper published in December, 2020 (again, please bear with me):
https://berthub.eu/articles/posts/reverse-engineering-source-code-of-the-biontech-prizer-vaccine/
The author takes apart the source code for the original Wuhan strain of the COVID-19 virus and then demonstrates what Pfizer-BioNTech did to this original source code in the creation of the company’s original COVID-19 “vaccine”, BNT162b2 / COMIRNATY.
Here’s the final sequence of the original Wuhan strain source code, followed by the Pfizer-BioNTech code editing:
Wuhan Strain: GUG CUC AAA GGA GUC AAA UUA CAU UAC ACA UAA
Pfizer’s edit: GUG CUG AAG GGC GUG AAA CUG CAC UAC ACA UGA UGA
While this editing may be perfectly acceptable in the creation of a vaccine, Yours Truly still believes “there’s something rotten in Denmark” about what Pfizer-BioNTech did. Something happened in the creation of BNT162b2 / COMIRNATY that’s behind the reason why the Wuhan strain mRNA-based spike protein is still included in the “vaccines.”
If Yours Truly “missed the boat” on this, please correct me. There’s something that smells to high Heaven.

It’s an unGodly horrific abomination .. people are blindly walking into a buzz-saw of death and destruction … 😢💔

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I agree. I will explain.

First, as an ASIDE, let me just correct that the Frankenstein virus they made in the lab was WUHAN BODY with OMICRON SPIKE. The sphere if the original with the spikes of Omicron. What this proved is that much of the lethality of the original Wuhan strain was not just in the spike, but in the other proteins.

The Omicron SPIKE reduces the lethality from 100% to only 80%, but Omicron TOTAL reduces the lethality to 0% in the test.

NOW – as for why they keep including the Wuhan spike in the VACCINES, I think you have hit the nail on the head. They want people to keep taking the original spike mRNA. IMO there is no reason to do this, other than (1) to double down on the original decision as a form of legal protection, and (2) to have the vaccines maintain some effect that was LOST when “nature or whoever” evolved Omicron’s spike.

I suspect that the Omicron spike doesn’t DEPOPULATE as well as Wuhan does. It is likely not as pathogenic. It doesn’t ABORT or EUTHANIZE as well as the Wuhan spike.

RDS

Wolf Moon
Thank you so much for the clarification. To Yours Truly, this raises more questions: What then are these other proteins in the “body” of the original Wuhan strain that are so lethal? What did Pfizer-BioNTech add to the original “body” to make BNT162b2 / COMIRNATY? Is the answer somewhere in the code sequence that the company altered to make the “vaccine”?

RDS

Wolf Moon
Got it. So, if it’s true that the Omicron spike (at least in the “later variants” like BA.5) doesn’t cause the damages and deaths that the Wuhan spike does, that would appear to be the reason why the Wuhan strain is still included in the “Omicron booster shots” and also in that Boston University virus creation — it would be the Wuhan strain that can “do the job”, so to speak.
IMO, somebody at the CDC, the FDA, the NIH / NIAID, and Pfizer-BioNTech knows that this is the case — perhaps more than ** one ** somebody.

Rapper Zuby and 20 things he learned about humanity during the pandemic:

1/ Most people would rather be part of the majority than on the right side.

2/ At least 20% of the population has strong authoritarian tendencies that will come out under the right conditions.

3/ Fear of death is surpassed only by fear of social disapproval. The latter may be even stronger.

4/ Propaganda is as effective today as it was 100 years ago. Access to unlimited information has not made the average citizen any wiser.

5/ Anything and everything can and will be politicized by the media, the government and those who trust them.

6/ Many politicians and large corporations are happy to sacrifice human lives if it furthers their political and financial goals.

7/ Most people believe that government acts in the best interest of the people. Even many who are vocal critics of the government.

8/ Once they have formed an opinion, people would rather stand by the wrong than admit they were wrong.

9/ People can be trained and conditioned quickly and relatively easily to change their behavior significantly – for better or worse.

10/ When sufficiently frightened, most people not only accept authoritarian measures, but actually demand them.

11/ People who are dismissed as “conspiracy theorists” are often well-researched and simply ahead of the mainstream narrative.

12/ Most people value security more than freedom, even if that “security” is just an illusion.

13/ Hedonic [subjective, comfortable feel-good] adaptation goes both ways, and once inertia sets in, it is difficult to return people to “normal.”

14/ A significant percentage of people enjoy being subjugated.

15/ “Science” has become a secular pseudo-religion for millions of people in the West. This religion has little to do with science itself.

16/ Most people care more about looking like they are doing the right thing than actually doing the right thing. [Wearing a mask!]

17/ Politics, the media, science, and health care are all corrupt to varying degrees. Scientists and doctors can be bought just as easily as politicians.

18/ If you make people comfortable enough, they will not rebel. You can make millions of people compliant by giving them money, food, and entertainment while curtailing their rights.

19/ Modern people are overly complacent and not vigilant enough when it comes to defending their own freedoms against government encroachment.

20/ It is easier to deceive a person than to convince him that he has been deceived.

Elon Musk ‘Fact Checks’ Hillary Clinton Over Paul Pelosi Attack Claims

As rumors abound across social media, new details have emerged in the hammer assault on Paul Pelosi, husband of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi — including the eyebrow-raising news that Pelosi referred to his assailant as a “friend” when calling police. 

Here’s an updated account as it’s been reported by the Los Angeles Times and various other media outlets citing police sources — along with some perspective on popular speculation about the incident. 
After reportedly breaking through a rear door in the very early hours of Friday morning, DePape entered the house and at some point confronted Pelosi.

con’t https://www.zerohedge.com/political/why-did-paul-pelosi-call-attacker-friend-911-call

TheseTruths

The underwear part of the story has been retracted. On the call, Pelosi said he didn’t know who the guy was but said he was a friend. The dispatcher thought there was some confusion.

I think it’s important to get to the truth. The problem is that we can’t trust any of the parties involved to give us the truth. If this had happened to Trump or DeSantis or any conservative, the media and lefties would be relentless and would never believe the truth if it didn’t suit their narrative. In a way, that’s where we are.

pgroup2

This seems appropriate in this situation:

TheseTruths

Yes, I’m getting a little bored with the story. I don’t think we’ll ever know the truth. It will blow over but will never be forgotten. People will move on now to bigger things, like the election. Nancy will eventually retire, maybe sooner rather than later, and that will be that.
