How amusing that Trump tricked the mainstream media into reporting that he wants the constitution to be thrown away when it’s the Democrats, Rhinos, and the deep state that have been trampling our constitution for generations. 
The fact that Trump tricks liberals and normies into talking about how we must defend the constitution after they tried to forcefully inject us with vaccines, bring in passports, cancel our free speech, and take away our guns is truly the height of irony. 
Trump is always forcing the media to humiliate itself at every turn.

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out. There is also a “rescue” thread there for members of the Tree to rendezvous if the main site goes kablooey. A third site has been added for site outages of longer duration.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

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

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

1Comfort, comfort my people, says your God. 2Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins. 3A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. 5And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.” 6A voice says, “Cry!” And I said, “What shall I cry?” All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. 7The grass withers, the flower fades, when the breath of the LORD blows upon it; surely the people is grass. 8The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God will stand for ever. 9Get you up to a high mountain, O Zion, herald of good tidings; lift up your voice with strength, O Jerusalem, herald of good tidings, lift it up, fear not; say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!” 10Behold, the Lord GOD comes with might, and his arm rules for him; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. 11He will feed his flock like a shepherd, he will gather the lambs in his arms, he will carry them in his bosom, and gently lead those that are with young.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

New post up, integrating Applegate, Twittergate, and Gail Combs’ work from yesterday, along with my commentary on CCP subversion via “Trust and Safety”.

Oh good.

I am working on the other ‘assignment’ You are really going to have to edit it because it is LOOOooooong. I am going to leave it that way and you can cull out the unnecessary. (I am going cross-eyed working on it.)

Court Vacates, Remands Ban on Sale of Semi-Auto Rifles to Adults Under 21

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco has vacated and remanded a lower court decision in the long-running challenge by the Second Amendment Foundation and National Rifle Association of provisions in gun control Initiative 1639, passed in November 2018, that prohibits the sale of semi-auto rifles to anyone under age 21, and also prevents sales of such rifles to residents of another state.

The announcement came Dec. 2. Joining SAF and NRA in the February 2019 lawsuit were firearms retailers Daniel Mitchell of Vancouver and Robin Ball of Spokane, and three private citizens in the prohibited age group. The case is known as Mitchell v. Atkins.

According to the tersely-worded order, the motion was unopposed.

“The district court’s judgment is vacated in its entirety, and the case is remanded for further proceedings consistent with the United States Supreme Court’s decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Ass’n, Inc. v. Bruen.”

The court action further underscores the far-reaching importance of the Bruen ruling, which did away with a “means-end scrutiny” strategy created by the federal courts following the McDonald ruling in 2010 that allowed states to essentially get around the Second Amendment by considering whether a challenged regulation promotes an important government interest.

Biden admin disbands ‘fake’ parents council after pushback from parental rights groups
https://ktvl.com/news/nation-world/biden-admin-disbands-fake-parents-council-after-pushback-from-parental-rights-groups

The National Parents and Families Engagement Council was formed in June as a way to “facilitate strong and effective relationships between schools and parents, families and caregivers.” Representatives were handpicked by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) to help the agency engage with communities at the local level.

Less than a month later, the Biden administration was hit with a lawsuit by parental rights groups claiming the council was ideologically divisive. Plaintiffs Parents Defending Education (PDE), America First Legal (AFL) and Fight for Schools and Families (FFS) noted that members of the council included those who stood by a National Schools Boards Association (NSBA) letter that likened concerned parents at school board meetings to “domestic terrorists.”

There is zero need for the government to get involved in parents’ relationships with schools. Zero. The pushback is encouraging, especially when it gets results.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yikes! Controlled opposition by the Biden Leninists!

cthulhu

The US Department of Education was set-up by Carter, only employs 3,000 people, and is a completely unwarranted Federal intrusion into a local issue. It’s a perfect candidate for outright elimination.

Just to make sure that it doesn’t get caught up in DS shenanigans, I’d begin the process by doing a complete IT exfiltration, then mass-release all of it.

There’s probably enough kiddie-porn, child trafficking, perversion, and general cattiness therein that you can eliminate the department as an afterthought while the scandals are percolating.

Good thinking!

Without Federal involvement, maybe real learning can take place…..

Reading the Brunsen and SCOTUS article…

“THE QUESTION
How can you support, and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign, and domestic? Answer: You investigate. If there are claims that there is a threat, even if you don’t believe there is a threat, you investigate. How else can you determine if there is a threat unless you investigate…………..”

I was immediately reminded of the inarguable Oppenheimer quote in the header.
Anyone trying to make a defense for all those who voted against an investigation is going to have a very difficult job on their hands.
Going to be interesting.

The truth is, control of elections needs to fall back to the people – a bunch of nobodies from all sides who police the ballots, count the ballots, and SEND TO JAIL any among them who cheat. Phone in the results – pen and paper – redundant as hell – and every election double-checked. This is not that hard. But Dominion cannot be trusted. The system is DESIGNED to be abused.

A master troll! But the underlying issue of fake science is appalling.

Oh, it is appalling.

“Scientismic Pseudo-Science” is growing everywhere.

It’s the Twilight Zone. The ideas are so ludicrous and worthless and unreal. *They* are trying to force us to accept unreality everywhere that they can get away with it. The “birthing people” one (men become pregnant) is so false and absurd that the first person to utter those words and that concept should have been ridiculed and ostracized. But no, we have college restrooms providing women’s products for men. I have yet to hear of a man who needs them (of course). “Morbid obesity is beautiful and healthy” is another one.

It’s a definite wheat-chaff sorter!  😉

The whole farce is based on the concept of having inflexible statutory deadlines, then bollixing things thoroughly and running out the clock. There need to be YUGE penalties for using this strategy.

One that comes to mind is “jurisdictions that fail to follow their own laws, or change the laws within 90 days of an election, shall be entirely disregarded in Federal elections.”

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.

Brilliant post, Deplorable Patriot!

I love fruitcakes, and all kinds fruitcake cookies too.

GA/FL

A favorite recipe given to me by a friend:

LAYERED FRUITCAKE BARS
 
6 tablespoon butter, melted
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup coconut flakes
1 1/2 cups chopped mixed candied fruit
1 cup chopped dates, chopped
1 cup chopped pecans
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

Heat oven to 350°F. Pour melted butter in 15×10-inch jelly roll pan. 
Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs over butter, shaking pan to distribute crumbs evenly. 
Layer in coconut, candied fruit, dates and pecans. 
Press mixture gently to level. 
Pour sweetened condensed milk evenly on top. 
Bake at 350°F for 25 to 30 minutes or until set and lightly browned. 
Cool in pan on wire rack. 
Cut into bars or squares.
Store in air tight container.
Yield: 60 bars.

A cousin had a memorable adventure with a no-bake fruitcake one time. Made so much, she had to keep getting bigger and bigger pans!

There are many fruitcakes that have been ‘re-gifted’ half a dozen times.

I think there’s even a club for families that ‘give’ the same fruitcake to each other year after year at Christmas time.

It’s a very small portion of the population that actually likes this creation.

We were like that – it was a joke to recirculate the darn things back and forth. My mother would buy new ones to add to the mix for an even bigger laugh. We would put the year on the box to know the vintage. And then when the cabinet was lean, we ate a very vintage fruitcake, and it was absolutely amazing. They all got eaten at that point.

singingsoul1

I like citron not the slimy sweet stuff that is called citron. I make mine or buy it at King Arthur’s.
I make stollen the raisins are soaked in brandy. I have them in a jar when I use it next week. I do not put much fruit in it . Mine is Dresden Stolle.
I do not like fruit cake but it is that I did not grow up with it.
Mystolle is nothing what on ebuys in a store even though it says Dresden Stolle.

I LOVE a nice German Stollen. Fond memories of my year in Germany was from the eatables. You can keep your French cooking and the cooking in Italy was uneatable. Our American Italian (usually by Greeks  🤔 ) is MUCH better than anything I got in Italy.

Down here Claxton fruitcakes are a big deal – made in Claxton, GA. I like them, even without the whiskey basting. Most Southerners basted their fruit cakes with bourbon for a month prior to serving during the holidays. They were served with spiked egg nog throughout the holidays.

Gail Combs

Claxton fruitcakes freeze well. I freeze several and pull them out for holidays and special occasions all year long.

Aubergine

My Nanny made fruitcakes that people drove 100 miles from Atlanta to buy. I have no idea how she did it, but she made them in the pressure-cooker. They weighed a ton, and they were DELICIOUS. I’ve never had good fruitcake since she died.

GA/FL

I’m so sorry the recipe/method was lost. It’s hard now to find the proper fruit. In the old days, you could buy orange and lemon peel, candied citron, many more ingredients. It’s also hard to find currants now.

Aubergine

That’s too bad. I would have thought in the South, at least, the ingredients could be found.

I never learned her fruitcake, but I make a mean sweet potato pie! And pound cake. I actually won a “Best of Division” in the Home Goods category at the county fair with the pound cake.

Wow – you are an excellent baker to make a great pound cake. I cannot make a good cake. Can’t make candies either – even pralines which I love. I’m a pie/cookie/bread person.

Aubergine

I’m good with anything baked. Candy, forget it. I don’t care what kind it is, I screw it up.

Homemade apple pie is my specialty, and my all-time favorite dessert.

I can’t even find tarragon for my tomato sauce! I have looked in several stores and no luck.

Fond memories from high school (Vette) and college. My Major Prof had me babysit and drove me home in that Jag.

After reading “Revenge of the Neocons” I would like to direct DeSantis to one comment by Saint Paul in First Corinthians chapter15 verse 33. I suppose Paul understood it was common sense when he wrote it. I believe God may have included it in the text of Scripture for a time when common sense was uncommon. In any event it is a wise admonition, especially for ambitious people.

I had a hydrogen tank go thru a cement wall at the second place I worked. At another place we could never get a really good seal on the H2 tank….

And then there is metal embrittlement…

What is Hydrogen Embrittlement? – Causes, Effects and Prevention

Hydrogen Embrittlement occurs when metals become brittle as a result of the introduction and diffusion of hydrogen into the material. The degree of embrittlement is influenced both by the amount of hydrogen absorbed and the microstructure of the material.

AZ UPDATE: Five Days to Respond 

Saturday is the deadline. I am aware of five separate suits being prepared for filing. Teams have been working 24/7 for weeks to prepare. 

Deputy Dawg:

Thank you @greggphillips! You are an inspiration. Am I correct that they can’t just run out the clock and appoint KH governor?

Gregg Phillips:

That is correct. The law is specific. The court SHALL hear the evidence.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The court SHALL Hear it…

Meaning the judge can’t hide behind “no standing” or similar faux-procedural bullcrap.

Will this judge have the nerve to “hear” the evidence and just flat-out ignore it?

Sadly, another death. But this time the parents are blaming Pfizer instead of saying they’re glad she got vaxxed or that the vax should still be recommended.

GWP: Family Blames Pfizer Shot After Their 18-Year-Old Healthy Daughter Dies Suddenly From Unknown Cause

Trista Deane Martin, a 2022 graduate of Broken Arrow High School, died suddenly months after receiving the Pfizer shot.

“She actually had already had COVID twice & the media made her think she still needed the shot,” she [her mother] wrote.

“I blame the media for scaring our children into believing the BS!” Taylor added.

“This has to be stopped! They need to be held accountable!” she continued.

“On November 9, my healthy, vibrant [18-year-old] beautiful daughter Trista [died suddenly]. We don’t know why. She just died. It will take months for the M.E. report, they said. I learned from her friends that she got the Pfizer shot back in July and told her friends not to tell me,” Trista’s father, Allen Martin, wrote on his social media.

According to Allen, her daughter has natural antibodies because she had Covid twice prior to receiving the shot.

“She got a check-up in July. They found nothing out of the ordinary. I am not anti-vax. I’m anti-Covid vax. We all already had covid and have natural antibodies. There was no legitimate reason for her to get this shot behind my back,” Allen wrote.

Allen stated that her daughter suffered heart swelling and organ failure.

“She had no history of diabetes, yet had a blood glucose level of over 600, and her heart was swollen as I watched her die. YOU are shameful,” Allen responded to a troll on Twitter.

“I have no doubt that Pfizer and the relentless “it’s safe” message from the media killed my daughter. We HAVE to stop this,” Allen said in the email.

This is a good article about all of Big Tech’s censorship and election interference.

GWP: BREAKING EXCLUSIVE: Big Tech Censorship Is the Largest Campaign Finance Violation in History Costing Americans Billions

One thing is certain, through all the actions listed above made under the direction of Zuckerberg, Sandberg, Dorsey and Pichai there has been a long and demonstrable history in making illegal undisclosed personal and undisclosed corporate in-kind contributions to their preferred political candidates and ballot initiatives.

The costs to America of these Big Tech violations are conservatively in the trillions.  What’s the cost of aiding one political party in gaining the reigns over the $22 trillion US economy?

It’s time states across the country address these election finance crimes and prevent Big Tech from ever siding with the corrupt Democrat Party and Deep State ever again.

RAC

Says it all, apart from this bit that doesn’t ring right with me…

” ………virus created in a lab funded by Anthony Fauci and utilized to further the totalitarian Great Reset agenda of Schwab, Gates and their ilk, while maximizing the profits of Pfizer……..”

I will never believe that the Fauci virus just happened unconnected to anything else, and the great reseters though, “Oh that’s providential we can use that”.
It was all too convenient and the timing was spot on, the two things are deliberate and linked, and I will never be convinced otherwise.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Actually that phrasing is pretty neutral on the subject of whether it was the plan all along or just an opportunistic thing.

If it had said, “fortunately (from their point of view), the virus had been created so they were able to use it” that would actually imply the opportunistic scenario you can’t be convinced is the case; on the other hand a conjunction like ….which had been created for the purpose of… would make explicit your preferred interpretation.

As I said this phrasing implies neither opportunism nor “all part of one big plan”

Good to know you can pop in. Of late saw just a few sporadic flickers of your being, here and over at one of our Sister’s place. Take care of yourself out there and looks forward to enjoying our company in full once things resolve. We’ve certainly been missing your strings of insightful posts, speaking of…

Even though “The Brave New World” served as warning to society (the Yang) , I trust the Tyler Drunden knows that Huxley was writing instructions for the dark overlords (the Yin) and Tyler simply chooses not to complicate an already complicated picture of reality.

Perhaps a fair test for knowing which ones have broken free from the illusions (Maya) is in understanding Russia’s roll against the Globalists when speaking about Ukraine. The earlier test being Covid for which many are still stuck into believing, while more and more are escaping that morass. The final being whatever becomes of us with CBDC. Having broken free or not, that final one will prove to be more real than the others. Simply being broken free mentally may not free all of those that will be physically trapped as well since breaking free totally will require both optimal location and resources at minimum. But the good news is globalists are extending themselves beyond what they can sustain and break throughs are occurring. Press on and we well may be able to shatter their world and put them to the run.
