Dear KMAG: 20221107 Joe Biden Didn’t Win ❀ Open Topic

Joe Biden didn’t win. This is our Real President:

AND our beautiful REALFLOTUS.


The [Q-10]th of November, 2022

A.K.A., Election Eve!

(Eleven Seven, Baby!)


This Stormwatch Monday Open Thread remains open – VERY OPEN – a place for everybody to post whatever they feel they would like to tell the White Hats, and the rest of the MAGA/KAG/KMAG world (with KMAG being a bit of both).

And indeed, it’s Monday…again.

But we WILL get through it!

In Wheatie style!

And maybe in Trump style, too!

Enjoy the ride!


Dedication

WHEATIE – OUR WARRIOR ANGEL

by Duchess01


Please forgive us, Wheatie, we did not know
That you had left us with armor in tow
We had no idea with what you dealt
We did not know the pain you felt
And now we can only imagine
With you what really did happen
Cause rarely did you complain 
And/or share your personal pain
Of one thing we are most certain
You are flying high behind the curtain
Watching over us above the crowds
Our Warrior Angel above the clouds
Thank You, Wheatie, for caring for us
While you were here among the fuss
We miss you dear you have no idea
Since time began in the pangaea
With you there was no time
In your wisdom you would chime
To clarify and magnify
The what where how and why
We did not question when you left
We were not slightly bereft
But over time we wondered why
You did not at least stop by
Now we know where you have gone
With the break of this new dawn
We could be angry but are not
Tho with an arrow we’ve been shot
Rest peacefully Warrior Angel dear
Send us a sign that you are near
A butterfly a flower a kiss of rain
From your love do not refrain
God sends Angels to watch over us
And now we have an Angel Plus
A Warrior Angel of Magnificence
From today and forward hence

The Rules

TL;DR –

Wheatie’s Rules:

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

Boilerplate, more or less, but worth reading again and again, if only for the minor changes, and to stay out of moderation.

The bottom line is Free Speech. Theories and ideas you don’t agree with must be WELCOME here, and you must be part of that welcoming. But you do NOT need to be part of any agreement.

Bottom line – respect other people’s FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS.

Our only additional requirement is that you do so NICELY. Or at least try to make some effort in that direction.

SO….. [ENGAGE BOILERPLATE…..]

We must endeavor to persevere to love our frenemies – even here.

Those who cannot deal with this easy requirement will be forced to jump the hoops of moderation, so that specific comments impugning other posters and violating the minimal rules can be sorted out and tossed in the trash.

In Wheatie’s words, “We’re on the same side here so let’s not engage in friendly fire.”

That includes the life skill of just ignoring certain other posters.

We do have a site – The U Tree – where civility is not a requirement. Interestingly, people don’t really go there much. Nevertheless, if you find yourself in an “argument” that can’t really stay civil, please feel free to “take it to the U Tree”. The U Tree is also a good place to report any technical difficulties, if you’re unable to report them here. Please post your comment there on one of Wolf’s posts, or in reply to one of Wolf’s comments, to make sure he sees it (though it may take a few hours).

We also have a backup site, called The Q Tree as well, which is really The Q Tree 579486807. You might call it “Second Tree”. The URL for that site is https://theqtree579486807.wordpress.com/. If this site (theqtree.com) ever goes down, please reassemble at the Second Tree.

If the Second Tree goes down, please go to The U Tree, or to our Gab Group, which is located at https://gab.com/groups/4178.

We also have some “old rules” and important guidelines, outlined here, in a very early post, on our first New Year’s Day, in 2019. The main point is not to make violent threats against people, which then have to be taken seriously by law enforcement, and which can be used as a PRETEXT by enemies of this site.

In the words of Wheatie, “Let’s not give the odious Internet Censors a reason to shut down this precious haven that Wolf has created for us.”


A Moment of Prayer

Our policy on extreme religious freedom on this site is discussed HERE. Please feel free to pray and praise God anytime and anywhere.

Thus, please pray for our real President, the one who actually won the election.

You may also pray for our nation, our world, and even our enemies.


Musical Interlude

In honor of dear Wheatie, we now present some music to soothe, inspire, invigorate, or relax.

Since I’m the only one who can currently embed YouTube videos, I owe Cthulhu at least one Pomplamoose video. Let’s get that out of the way!

Ah, what the heck. Let’s throw in a “bonus Beths”! If not for Cthulhu, then for me!!!

But now it’s time to get serious. We have to start talking about greatness again.

Let’s try one more.

NOW we’re ready.


Call To Battle

Our beloved country is under Occupation by hostile forces.

Daily outrage and epic phuckery abound.

https://thelibertydaily.com/breaking-kari-lakes-hq-shut-down-after-receiving-white-powder-and-bomb-threat/

We can give in to despair…or we can be defiant and fight back in any way that we can.

Sanctimonious? In a brilliant way that elevates both DeSantis and Trump – but that takes a bit of explanation (see below). My God, this popcorn is fantastic!


Joe Biden didn’t win.

And we will keep saying Joe Biden didn’t win until we get His Fraudulency out of our White House.


Wolfie’s Wheatie’s Word of the Day Year Week:


sanctimonious

noun

behaving with sanctimony (excessive or hypocritical piousness)

characterized by sanctimony

affecting piety or making a display of holiness

showing or marked by false piety or righteousness; hypocritically virtuous

Used in a sentence or two:

The brilliantly sanctimonious (or maybe not) DeSantis video is truly a gift to both DeSantis and Trump, although that may be hard for some to see. The TRUTH of the message cannot be missed, and if anything, the message is understated, as all of us thank God for Ron DeSantis. Honestly, I get choked up watching that video. EVERY single time.

I’ll say it right here. Thank GOD for Ron DeSantis.

But is it too much? Well, the TRUTH of the message exceeds the message – so no real misstep there. When you “get chills” watching that video, it’s for a reason. And yet, the more you watch it, the more you realize that we should not be afraid to invoke the name of God. Not in truth. And every word of that video is true.

It’s BOLD is what it is.

When it’s not hypocritical – when it’s bold and true – then it cannot be sanctimonious.

AND YET…..

I’m sure the video does appear to be sanctimonious to some. It did to me, at first. I think that’s part of the genius of it. We are drawn into the truth of it.

Interestingly, I think the video also serves as a statement of principle to “The Club”.

“This is who I am. I’m a fighter. And THIS is what I fight for.”

LET THAT SINK IN, CLUB.

That sure looks like a very Trumpian wish-list to me. Indeed, I think that video is going to change some scheming Club minds in a way that is very positive for both DeSantis and Trump. Those who want to create division between the two are going to have a much harder time, because there sure doesn’t seem to be much space.

GOOD.

Used in a symbolic natural event:

A FULL rainbow? “C’mon, man!”


ENJOY THE SHOW

Have another great week!

sanctimony (n.)

1530s, “piety, devoutness, sanctity,” a sense now obsolete, from French sanctimonie, from Latin sanctimonia “sacredness, holiness, virtuousness,” from sanctus “holy” (see saint (n.)). The surviving sense of “external appearance of devoutness, hypocritical or affected piety” is by 1610s.

Interestingly, I think the video also serves as a statement of principle to “The Club”.

I hope you’re right. I only saw the video once, and in the context of looking for sanctimony. I found what I was looking for. 😁 I don’t think even Trump claims to have been sent by God.

Whatever it takes to win, go for it. This is war.

Aubergine

That ad made me nauseous. I couldn’t even watch it all. Blech,

I’m gonna suspend final judgment while continuing to let the Occams Razor antenna twitch.

I watched it again. I still hate it. Sanctimonious is literally the exact word for it.

Trump nailed it. Again.

TheseTruths

I’m bringing this over from yesterday. This video posted by Dan Scavino shows how hard it was raining at the Trump rally. And Trump carries on, and the people stay and listen. To me, it exemplifies our united determination to keep fighting against all odds.

GA/FL

WOW – it’s a wonder all the lights and sound didn’t short out.

And he kept his poise with all of it.

And does have to ask…

Does any speaker get anointed by the rain as often as Trump?

Or the rainbows?

Biden and Ø bet anointed by flies.

Ha ha.. Pence too!

The turtle would appear to be a red-eared slider — a common freshwater turtle. It’s odd that it would have been hanging around in brackish/salt water long enough to get such a heavy encrustation of barnacles. That said, the guy made short work of them. And, despite my concerns, he didn’t nick the turtle once.

cthulhu

California has had its share of animal rescues gone bad. Things like rehabilitating a seal pup for six months, releasing back into the wild with 30 people and a news crew watching, and having an orca eat the pup 100 yards offshore…..

After the only barnacles left were near the turtle’s head, I was half expecting it to stretch its neck out and try to look at what was going on.

GA/FL

Maybe it’s at the mouth of a river where the water isn’t so brackish…?

para59r

I though he might be going into the soup bucket after his scraping. Guess that turtle is lucky.

The owl guy missed his chance to attach a message: “Headmaster, Hogwarts School….”

I have to take this further. 😀

In the Paestum area, south of Salerno, there are many buffalo dairy farms where the best mozzarella is made. The one we always stopped at is Tenuta Vannulo, where you have to get there early or everything is gone but the gelato.

They are known for pampering their animals, with backscratchers, showers and classical music playing in the barn.

Never say never.
I hope you bought a power ball ticket.
And I hope you win.
Knowing full well that decreases the odds that my ticket wins. And also believing the entire lottery system is a total scam.  😂 

That said, the wife and I get endless hours of laughing enjoyment just ‘dreaming out loud’ what we’ll do when we win, from a $2 dollar ticket.
Two dollars well spent.  😀  😀  😃  😄

Re: that Power Ball ticket. Have thought about all the ministries, etc. – the millions I would give away. Would be such a joy!

Yup. Really, really good with ridiculing liberals. Actually an automatic reflex for the likes of me. Ridicule. Sarcasm…

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

A page linked to from there, makes some election night prognostications.

A tweet by someone named Dave Wasserman includes the following–on what to look for early on election night as a predictor of the rest of the night.

Here’s my rough thinking early on Election Night:

– If #VA02 Luria (D) holds on, better night for Dems than expected

– If #IN01 Mrvan (D) or #VA07 Spanberger (D) lose, Rs likely winning 20+ seats

– If #NH02 Kuster (D) or #VA10 Wexton (D) lose, Rs likely winning 30+ seats

TheseTruths

Astute comment. I don’t know if the DeSantis camp thinks it needs Trump’s endorsement in this election, but by asking people to vote for him, Trump gave it anyway, and that does put him in a position of having helped.

kalbokalbs

Trump’s praise of Rubio was hugely repetitive, AND IMO, NOT earned by Rubio.

But, Trump is pulling out the stops to get R-Cons elected / re-elected.

I doubt DeSantis needed Trump’s positive comment. Glad DeSantis got it. Likely help, down ballot R-Cons in FL.

TheseTruths

I found the title a little misleading. The “great friend” comment was about Rubio, not DeSantis.

kalbokalbs

GWP seemingly thrives on misleading headlines. Click bait, I suppose.

Aubergine

Trump knows that people like me will hate that ad, and he knows that Ron is planning to run against him.

Trump is a tactician on a level American politics is unaccustomed to.

People in the crowd at a Trump rally like DeSantis for Governor of Florida, and are glad Trump supports that. But they will remember “DeSanctimonious” when the fool tries to run in 2024.

Check and mate.

Aubergine

AGREED.

Deplorable Patriot

GOPe is being driven by the money guys propping them up.

But, you know that.

They aren’t making a secret of it at all.

singingsoul1

The people in at the rally in Florida also let Trump know who they want to run for President they called 4 more year and We love Trump. DeSantis if he is smart will not run against Trump . People like DeSantis as Gov. but want trump as President.

Aubergine

That’s what I think, too.

BillBeakman

Still hung up here over DeSanctimonious’ non response / response to the Fed break-in at Trump’s digs.
I guarantee “45” hasn’t forgotten.

GA/FL

It’s looking like DeSantis is falling in with the Jeb/Ryan/McConnell crowd. Hope he’s smarter and more patriotic than that.

kalbokalbs

With 45 likely announcing within days, it’ll all be crystal clear soon.

If DeSantis has a bit on both common sense and wisdom, he’ll know what to do.

  • 100% C L E A R L Y support SAVE America AND Florida.
  • DeSantis will then be better aligned to run in 2028.
  • Then, will it be, Kari or Ron heading the ticket? 🙂
GA/FL

I like both of those – It should be Ron – because he will have been a 2 term governor and she can learn the ropes while VP and run in 8 years after he’s done.

kalbokalbs

Agree, Ron with Kari in second spot.

BillBeakman

Where did the notion ever arise that VP was more often a holding place for also rans & losers? There are exceptions but VP would not be a good look for Kari. On the other hand it would be a good look for the person at the top of the ticket.

Tonawanda

Totally agree. Our side needs leadership. We are in desperate need. Kari is a leader, not a second fiddle. We will see if this holds true, but she sounds true – – note perfect, no phoniness or political hogwash.

The question about DeS is whether he is a true leader or a second fiddle. The facts cited by Sundance indicate DeS is a second fiddle. One of those guys who is primarily happy his ticket is getting punched. But there is no need to decide that now, and things will become more clear.

BillBeakman

Thanks for articulating better than I did!

RF121

Will need to check the history books, but in modern history, having more then 8 years in a row of one party does not happen.

Reagan, then Bush..12 years. That’s reasonably modern. Before that, you’ve got to go back to FDR/Truman, I think, for a 20 year run of Dems.

Yup. The wild card, IF we have an honest election.

Deplorable Patriot

There’s a couple things I have saved on this topic for tomorrow’s daily. Apparently, there’s a campaign behind the scenes and there’s A LOT of betrayal going on. Sundance put it out there as the DeSanctimonious crack was to let the group plotting against him know that he knows.

It’s not all about DeSantis.

Deplorable Patriot

Bottom line:

The corporatacracy wants populism and MAGA obliterated. It’s messing too much with the way they had things set up.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

What do you mean, regain?

Other than at the very top of the pyramid, they never lost it. Even if MAGA gets 25 percent of GOP-held offices…the GOPe still controls the party itself, and they can just bide their time.

kalbokalbs

Mush-Mind was the lead bot. BiteMe knows not what he says and does.  😕 

TheseTruths

Gateway Pundit has the text of part of Gregg and Catherine’s appeal here. It shows that the judge didn’t understand some of what the case was about and refused to allow them to explain. Apparently he did not allow cross-examination of the plaintiff (Konnech) either.

In fact, had the district court subjected Plaintiff’s testimony to cross-examination, consistent with due process, the court could have determined whether Plaintiff does indeed own the above-named domain names, and whether it was Plaintiff who moved the domain names from the server in China to the one in the United States. If Plaintiff does own the domain names or did move them from an insecure server in China to a server in the United States, then its entire motion for contempt, and its argument that it needs immediate injunctive relief in the form of Defendants helping it to understand its server’s “breach”, could have been denied. Why? Because Plaintiff knew its information was on a server in China, and Plaintiff did not require the names of private individuals in order to secure its data, as Plaintiff insisted in its overheated and ex parte Motion for TRO.

Lacking such urgency, the court’s holding of the ex parte proceeding was itself inappropriate. And it made no sense for the court to order Defendants to tell Plaintiff what it already knew, nor to arbitrarily incarcerate them for a good-faith disinclination to disclose the names of confidential informants who could have told them what they already knew: that they were hosting their domain names and data on a server in China.

The court did not allow Defendants to explain the crucial distinctions at issue here. It did not appear to appreciate the distinctions – admittedly somewhat technical in nature – when Defendants offered them. Witness the court’s questioning of Phillips regarding the data – the Chinese Server Data – of American citizens he saw that night in the Dallas hotel room:

THE COURT [Judge Hoyt]: And you saw that there were bank accounts?

THE WITNESS [Gregg Phillips]: There were bank accounts.

THE COURT: You saw the names of the individuals?

THE WITNESS: Yes, sir.

THE COURT: You saw their Social Security numbers?

THE WITNESS: Yes, sir.

THE COURT: And you then said: We’re going to post this on a public domain?

THE WITNESS: No, sir. There is two different datasets.

THE COURT: Well, I’m not — I don’t care about the datasets. You know what I am describing.

“It’s unrelated,” Defendant Phillips began, because he did in fact know what the court was describing, but the court cut him off before he could explain the crucial distinction.

Gregg Phillips has posted a lot of information on “a public domain,” OpenInk, but none of that is the data from the China servers. He was never in possession of that data, but the judge would not allow him to explain that. IMO, this judge should be censured in a major way for what he did in this case.

cthulhu

It is often infuriating when judges refuse to be educated in the substance of a case before issuing rulings.

TheseTruths

Judiciary malpractice. People’s freedom and reputations are at stake.

cthulhu

The idiot judge threw them into a jail full of such dangerous people that they had to be kept in solitary, and the jail’s rules forbade them from their usual daily medications (e.g. hypertension and diabetes).

The unusual move of putting Gregg and Catherine in PHYSICAL jail for contempt in a civil proceeding might have cost them serious injury or death.

Impeachment and disbarment sound about right.

slowcreekno

Can a jail actually legally ban vital medications from its inmates?

Everywhere else this would be criminal negligence or similar grounds for a lawsuit.

cthulhu

This whole scenario stinks to high heaven. I really think the judge should be impeached and disbarred.

scott467

It’s cruel and unusual punishment for people who haven’t even been convicted of anything.

It’s typical of our law enforcement and judicial tyranny.

Process is used as a weapon of punishment and intimidation, while guilt or innocence is irrelevant. In fact, from the tyrants’ point of view, it’s better if you’re innocent, because that sends a message to every other law abiding American.

The people in charge are criminals. Thugs. Banana republic type 3rd-world clowns.

It’s so grotesquely unconstitutional that the participants should all be tried for treason, and punished accordingly.

But they won’t be, nobody will do anything, which is exactly how we ended up here in the first place.

kalbokalbs

^^^ T H I S.

TheseTruths

Can a jail actually legally ban vital medications from its inmates?

I had never heard of this before. I would think it qualifies under “cruel and unusual punishment.” I’ve heard of people being given organic food when requested, or certain foods because of their religion. Withholding medication could lead to severe illness or death, especially if a diabetic needs insulin.

Charlie

Inmates get viagra, that’s far from vital.

So I was noticing the upward trend (quoted post) that began just slightly in 2006, and never fully went back down, which made me think—I’ll bet the Fall of 2006 is when they really started pushing the flu vaccine for pregnant women. (It has about a 7x higher miscarriage rate, documented.)

I did a little digging and found the first randomized clinical trial looking at the flu vaccine in pregnancy was completed in 2005 (though it was not a placebo study, they compared two different vaccines and noted their apparent benefits) so… Bingo. Evidence in hand, they started pushing and touting the benefits the following “Flu season.”

Do you have a source link for that graphic?

Stats from Haifa seem to support the above graph – Israel definitely went whole hog with vaccinations – https://jackanapes.substack.com/p/still-births-miscarriages-and-abortions

However – Here’s the CDC page on stillbirths by year: https://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/stillbirth/data.html

and a study shows women with multiple miscarriages have a greater risk of stroke: https://www.sciencealert.com/a-history-of-miscarriages-or-stillbirths-can-lead-to-an-increase-in-stroke-risk

para59r

Jerks make no effort at how they come to that conclusion except to say a report, or at least it appears here not and of course Newsweek does not provide a link to the alleged report or even the CDC for that matter.

The CDC report in your post above this shows a statistical report, not a medical study. Who do they think they are fooling!

Somebody said that graphic came from Newsweek – but can’t find a link.

This is a fun little video that shows that I am older than the Cooley–Tukey FFT algorithm of 1965.

And, yes, it’s used freakin’ everywhere.

slowcreekno

An excellent presentation!

Both the historical part, that this development was inspired by the need for determining the origin of seismic events by looking for details in the frequency domain plot, the spectrum, of the event, and how using the symmetrical parts of the sine waves would allow the re-use of data points at other known places thus speeding up the overall calculations.

cthulhu

I thought it was pretty cool.

I have a weird entanglement with mathematics. My parents met while they were both pursuing BS degrees in math. My dad went on to two Masters’ degrees in Engineering, and my mom went on to a Masters’ in math and was pursuing a PhD in history of math…..when I went into accounting.

I got involved with FFT when I was working at a fiberoptic video transmission company where we had to analyze distortions in our signal path. I had a vague idea of what was going on, but knew the results were important. I found this video to be a good explanation of what was going on.

Tonawanda

Trying to watch it…youtube served me an ad for Jeep Wagoneer (it does that a lot for some reason)…then I got one for Febreeze…en Espanol.

Good. The System has no idea what I’m interested in, or what languages I know.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I have not watched the video, but one of my irritations about the way the Fourier transform is taught is that they invariably use a triangular function (slope up, then slope down) as the example. Since the visualization is of reversing that function then sliding the reverse function over itself and plotting the intersecting area as a function of how far you’ve slid the reversed function…well, you can’t see that it’s flipped because it’s symmetric.

Remembering listening to this makes me realize just why I hate that DeSanctimonious ad so much.

Farmers are the salt of the earth. My grandfather was a subsistence farmer for three families, his own and his two children’s. He was the hardest working man I have ever known. He worked at a tire factory, and came home every day from that to work a field until dark to feed people. He wore dirty overalls, a perpetual sunburn, and could never get his hands completely clean.

Ron, in his $1000 suits, with his soft hands and his spiffy ties and shiny shoes, could not hold a candle to a farmer like my Papa. Not a one of them. And I know many.

Sonnet 33

by William Shakespeare

Full many a glorious morning have I seen
Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy;
Anon permit the basest clouds to ride
With ugly rack on his celestial face
And from the forlorn world his visage hide,
Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace.
Even so my sun one early morn did shine
With all-triumphant splendour on my brow;
But out, alack! he was but one hour mine;
The region cloud hath mask’d him from me now.
Yet him for this my love no whit disdaineth;
Suns of the world may stain when heaven’s sun staineth.

Have to agree with Joe Sobran, many of the sonnets have a homosexual subtext. That does not make them any less beautiful.

Less beautiful in lilt than many but for me one of the deepest is 116:

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand’ring bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me prov’d,
I never writ, nor no man ever lov’d.

Would that the truth of 116 were more widely understood and embraced.

GA/FL

Only in the lens of those afflicted with distorted/abnormal sexual responses. They also read David/Jonathan, Ruth/Naomi as homo/bi/etc. It’s all in the eye/mind of the beholder.

The step by step conditioning path to sexual and identity distortion is outlined in Romans 1:18-32

It’s a kind of rebellion, lack of surrender, refusal to worship to GOD.

Tonawanda

Do you have an opinion on the Oxford question?

GA/FL
Tonawanda

I mean whether the Earl of Oxford wrote the Shakespeare plays and sonnets. The authorship question has been one of my hobbies throughout the years. A pointless hobby, but fascinating.

I do not know if Oxford wrote Shakespeare, but I totally believe Shakspere did not write Shakespeare. And Sobran (and many others) may very well be right, Oxford may be the author. I think it very probable.

Admittedly uncertain aspects (in the sense of being factual) of Oxford’s life suggest he had homosexual inclinations (“he liked to bugger boys”). Which may or may not be evidence, but it cannot be discounted. I read Shakespeare by Another Name years ago, and what I retained is that it was could be true.

Sobran actually said there are “strong hints” of a homosexual subtext, and maybe that is a better way to put things. The question has been much discussed, often in a scholarly ways which seem to go beyond those afflicted with distorted responses.

About the other pairs you mention, I have no idea.

Wolf once called homosexuality a “normal aberration,” which seems like a great description. Has always been with us, a very small percentage of the population, but there.

GA/FL

Someone wrote that human identity, including sexual, is the first to go askew with trauma, negative and adverse conditioning. In years of observation amongst family and friends, reading and studying psychology, social work, prayer ministry, desperate alphabet activist propaganda and tantraums, etc. and that would seem to be true.

Tonawanda

No question whatsoever! Traumatic childhoods are carried forever. They form personalities. The effects can be modified, but never forgotten or completely eliminated IMO.

And there have always been traumatic childhoods.

GA/FL

True. Neural plasticity – the idea that conditioning occurs throughout life….that the brain can change throughout life – by events, human interactions, thoughts, reading, experiences both positive and negative. There’s the hope. Scripture, the Holy Spirit, the power of GOD, fellowship of true believers, ministries like AA, Celebrate Recovery, etc. Can all bring healing and peace. If one is honest. And seeks….

GA/FL

Scientists – doctors – can now read the brain and identify addicts and blind people through how their brain scans ‘light up’.

Happy go lucky

And psychopaths

GA/FL

True.

GA/FL

…and depressed folks.

GA/FL

There certainly seems to be a consistency that certain sets of conditioning will produce that result.

In psychology, it’s all about correlations, math and statistics – except for the political agenda part – which has taken over most everything lately.

Statistics can be manipulated, and studies hidden, just like voting and ballots.

I believe there really was a real Shakespeare. Unless it was a ‘school of literature’ – like a movement or genre with all the playwrights working as a team. However, I’ve never heard of such a theory.

BTW – where is our word play expert Cuppa Cofvefe?

Tonawanda

The team theory is actually my inclination, which featured Oxford, and the very talented group of playwrights and poets from that period. But who knows for certain?

GA/FL

There were other schools of art, painting, etc. back then – and it’s hard to define which painter, unless you are really skilled, talented, experienced and knowledgable. Speaking of which – I loved the Dan Silva stories until the very last one when he attacked Trump – then I got rid of my collection – dad gum it.

Cuppa Covfefe

I needed to sharpen my Shakespeare 🙂

There was. He was Jesuit educated and fluent in Latin and Greek. There is a newish branch of Shakespeare study that is developing the idea that his plays were coded messages to the masses regarding what was going on. For example, almost every play has a spotless woman in it. Think Bianca, Desdemona, Hero, Ophelia, etc. It is believed that that woman in each play represents the Catholic Church. Remember, Shakespeare came about after the revolt when the Crown stole a lot of property, and the treasuries. THink about the themes, and the reality that Desdemona is killed by her husband after he was manipulated by Iago.

There’s a book titled Shadowplay that lays it out. Interesting stuff.

GA/FL

I might look up that book. Shakespeare is a class by himself.
If only the Church and church were really a spotless woman! Whatta mess she’s in – esp. the Church of England and Episcopal church.

GA/FL

Tonawanda – You are right – those words are deep truty. That is my favorite of all Shakespeare’s sonnets. Almost impossible to achieve and never guaranteed to find – even in parents love.

Also love the Sonnets from the Portugese….Dickinson, Frost and others. But I cling to Scripture even more.

Speaking of poetry – hope Bakocarl and Duchess are still writing.

Aubergine

That is the one sonnet I can recite by heart.

They’ve had remedial classes in our local university for decades.

State of GA Hope Scholarships guarantee every student a chance at a college education – not necessarily the most competitive colleges like UGA Athens, but at least Valdosta State. It’s up to the student to pass or flunk out.

Sounds desirable. I’ve read elsewhere of programs that guarantee like the top 10% of even failing schools a shot at college, but at some point they have to achieve growth. Having remedial programs to help transition students out of educational poverty who have the chance to excel due to their determination, drive, & demonstrated capabilities is so hopeful!

GA/FL

Of course we know that trade schools produce better paying jobs most of the time. Plumbers and electricians are never laid off or lack for work!

Those careers actually have Real World practical value!

We may have one more storm down here:

You missed the bad one – !

This one looks like it will touch both FL coasts and could bring a lot of rain to delay the recovery efforts down there.

TradeBait2

Yep, down in the low country now. Looks like we may head back to the hills early to avoid the wind and rain.

Look for a Heads Up post today, folks. An expanded ground report. The seas are choppy and headed for a coastal spanking in more areas than the beaches, also with the economy.

Vibisch !

everything up here in Ohio Amish country is very gut.

the fall trees have been just jaw-dropping gorgeous..truly Maxfield Parish scenes.

the light here is fantastic, the skies are quite phenomenal…I LOVE the sight of the Amish walking, working, in their buggies…awesome horses !!

the temps are getting cold and I’m not on Bikey as much as I was in Florida (hills like roller coasters ??), days are much shorter, sun way to the south, garden is gone, but the flags are still there ! I put them everywhere, lol.

lots of Patriots up here. and interesting history & lore.

and lots & lots of gigantic old trees, still standing.

I’ll trade the hurricanes for the cold weather, yes I will.

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 can see DeSantis waiting four years of a PDJT presidency. Why not take over a successful rebuilding of the county and make it even more successful? His stock only goes up IMO.
He’s nobody’s fool, sly as PDJT. I believe there much more connected to each other than many think.

Yup.

Not a doubt in my mind.

Need money to win national elections and fix election security. Politics is all about building coalitions and with them, money comes. PDT and RDS are both doing it from different directions. The lines of attack will intersect when it is time to do so.

TheseTruths

I also think that a certain amount of “playing the game” is required, not in the sense of being dishonest or betraying the voters, but in the sense of managing the wolves and the money people who want power over you. Trump is a master at that, but he doesn’t need their money. I suspect that sometimes you have to appear to be placating them without committing to them.
