Wolf:
Re: Twatter emails

Depends on which account I’m using what messages they emphasize.

One account emphasizes cybersecurity but I also get Dinesh D’Souza for some reason.

Another wholly separate account gets borderline pr0n posts.

MORE IMPORTANTLY:

Amplified Trans accounts with similar photo emphasis – men’s bodies attempting to perform feminine glamor poses

Both are a concern but each for their own reasons

AT LEAST IN PART I think Twatter’s Artificial Stupidity and Machine Lethergy Al Gore Rhythms are tuned to identify photo posts that are feminine and attractive. Based on your account profile, it may be boosting those twats to the inbox of male accounts.

Could be the algorithm is busted and boosting trannies too. Possible, but I don’t believe that’s the full story there. My gut says the trans are boosted by other algorithmic factors.

Boosting is NOT consistent. Some emails have the boosting while others do not.

The cybersec account is connected with a former coworker who is now trans. She/his (sic) posts are trans and are often boosted. Is it b/c trans or b/c connected or b/c high interaction? Can’t say exactly – but it is sad to watch.

Later is NOW – as in finally OFF my tiny batphone.  😉 

Seriously, I used to get extreme boosting of a Muslim chick who posted great “Muslim girl” wallpapers, which are very similar to the kind of wallpapers Christian girls like, but obviously no explicit representations of The Big Guy Prophet, and no crosses, but occasionally crescent moons. But they were nice, and I would drop likes on them.

Twitter went absolutely nuts, trying to “change my ways” by boosting her stuff on my timeline, until I actually had to unfollow her. It was like my timeline turned into hers.

I definitely think Twitter has modules that “build bridges”, and the damn things are sometimes algorithmically fragile.

This article from the opener is interesting.

Is the Conscience Reliable?

Conscience Dictates on the Opposite Side of Every Moral Issue

Here’s another way of proving that the conscience is largely useless in directing right behavior: People on the opposite side of every moral issue are equally convinced they are listening to their conscience. You cannot name an issue wherein this is not the case. This is true for extreme examples such as World War II German soldiers and their Nazi leaders…

Americans who believe the human fetus has a right to live (unless its death is necessary to save the life of the mother — something that almost never happens thanks to modern medicine) and those who do not believe the human fetus has any right to live (unless the mother wants it to) are both equally convinced their consciences dictate their views on abortion. Americans who believe it is moral to surgically remove the healthy breasts of any girl or young woman who says she is a boy have a completely clear conscience, as do those who think this act constitutes immoral mutilation.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. It took CENTURIES for the Hippocratic way to be found. It then persisted for over two millennia. We throw it away at our PERIL. But the people who throw it away seem to have a clear conscience.

Gail Combs

If you do not have the  Judaeo-Christian ethics, then you may have other ‘ethics’ as detailed below:

KILLING THOSE “UNFIT TO LIVE”

The moment we face it frankly we are driven to the conclusion that the community has a right to put a price on the right to live in it … If people are fit to live, let them live under decent human conditions. If they are not fit to live, kill them in a decent human way. Is it any wonder that some of us are driven to prescribe the lethal chamber as the solution for the hard cases which are at present made the excuse for dragging all the other cases down to their level, and the only solution that will create a sense of full social responsibility in modern populations?”

Peter Singer’s Bold Defense of Infanticide:

Singer is the Decamp Professor of Bio-Ethics at Princeton University.

In 1979 he wrote,“Human babies are not born self-aware, or capable of grasping that they exist over time.

  :wpds_arrow:  𝗧𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗼𝗻𝘀”; 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗲, “𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗮 𝗻𝗲𝘄𝗯𝗼𝗿𝗻 𝗶𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝘃𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗮 𝗽𝗶𝗴, 𝗮 𝗱𝗼𝗴, 𝗼𝗿 𝗮 𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗺𝗽𝗮𝗻𝘇𝗲𝗲.””

And that ‘Bio-Ethics’ then trickles down to this.  👇 

After-Birth Abortions: College Students Increasingly Support Infanticide

“… in interviews that not only do they see more college students willing to say they support post-birth abortion, but some students even suggest children up to 4 or 5-years-old can also be killed, because they are not yet “self aware.”’

The Most Good You Can Do: How Effective Altruism Is Changing Ideas about Living Ethically — GREEN-LEFT ORG. REVIEW.

By Peter Singer

Yale University Press, 2015

272 pages

Living up to his moral philosophical tradition of utilitarianism, with its “greatest good” principle, Australian philosopher Peter Singer’s latest instalment is The Most Good You Can Do.

The book — endorsed by software monopolists and corporate philanthropists Bill and Melinda Gates — is based on Singer’s “Castle Lecture” at Yale University in 2013.

The book approaches “the most good” idea in four parts: effective altruism; how to do the most good; motivation and justification; and choosing causes and organisations. Singer, according to a New Yorker quote on the book’s cover, “may be the most controversial philosopher alive; he is certainly among the most influential.”

Singer’s argument follows a three-fold logic: capitalism remains with us for the time being; it creates social, economic, and moral pathologies such as extreme poverty; and as a consequence, we have a moral duty to alleviate the worst impact of capitalism (a word that barely appears in the book) by doing — individually — the most good we can do.

For supporters of utilitarianism, there is a moral duty to donate whatever we can to charities that work for the poor. But Singer also discusses what makes a good charity — for instance, Oxfam. In this sense, his book is quite often political rather than moral in its philosophical character.

“Oxfam is a British-founded confederation of 21 independent charitable organizations focusing on the alleviation of global poverty, founded in 1942 and led by Oxfam International.”

OxFam is named after the Oxford Committee for Famine Relief

The Singer quote is from 89 years ago. They have been working steadily on this since before then. I think in the first decades they focused on moral depravity and abortion and tearing down the family, and having sewn those seeds, now they are out in the open with advocacy of actual murder.

pgroup2

Sin seems to never go out of style.  😫 

Gail Combs

“…The Singer quote is from 89 years ago….”

WIKI

Peter Albert David Singer was born 6 July 1946… Singer studied law, history, and philosophy at the University of Melbourne, earning a bachelor’s degree in 1967.[14] He has explained that he elected to major in philosophy after his interest was piqued by discussions with his sister’s then-boyfriend.[15]

He earned a master’s degree for a thesis entitled “Why Should I Be Moral?” at the same university in 1969. He was awarded a scholarship to study at the University of Oxford and obtained from there a BPhil degree in 1971 with a thesis on civil disobedience supervised by R. M. Hare and published as a book in 1973…

𝗦𝗶𝗻𝗴𝗲𝗿’𝘀 𝗣𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗘𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗰𝘀 (𝟭𝟵𝟳𝟵) 𝗮𝗻𝗮𝗹𝘆𝘇𝗲𝘀 𝘄𝗵𝘆 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗵𝗼𝘄 𝗹𝗶𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗯𝗲𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀’ 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝘀 𝘀𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱 𝗯𝗲 𝘄𝗲𝗶𝗴𝗵𝗲𝗱. 𝗛𝗶𝘀 𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗶𝗽𝗹𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝘀 𝗱𝗼𝗲𝘀 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗱𝗶𝗰𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗲𝗾𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗼𝗳 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘀𝗲 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝘀, 𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗱𝗶𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘁𝘀 𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗿𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝗱𝗶𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁.

Taking it as 1971 when he earned a degree (and started hanging with Keshen later introduced Singer to his vegetarian friends.)
That makes it 52 years MAX and not 89. Singer wasn’t even born 89 years ago.

TheseTruths

My mistake. I was referring to the Shaw quote of 1934.

Gail Combs

Yes, Shaw was born July 26, 1856, and died November 2, 1950,

Another Fabian, John Dewey was born October 20, 1859, and died June 01, 1952,

PBS Online: Only A Teacher: Schoolhouse Pioneers

John Dewey was the most significant educational thinker of his era and, many would argue, of the 20th century. As a philosopher, social reformer and educator, he changed fundamental approaches to teaching and learning. His ideas about education sprang from a philosophy of pragmatism and were central to the Progressive Movement in schooling. 

John Dewey (1859-1952) Father of Modern Education

The most influential education guru in American history was a Fabian Socialist, signer of the Humanist Manifesto I, founding member of the American Civil Liberties Union, and president of the League for Industrial Democracy—the American counterpart of the British Fabian Society. As all of the above, John Dewey has wounded America to a degree that few other people have….

One would hope that the person dubbed “the father of modern American education” would craft a system to preserve the high ideals of Jefferson, Washington, Adams, and other Founding Fathers in the hearts and minds of American children for generations to come. One would hope that. But one would be grievously disappointed….

Dewey worked hard to refine his socialist pedigree. In 1928, he traveled to Russia to help implement the Karl Marx system of education and then returned to teach at Columbia University as the head of that university’s department of education. Dewey supported the upstart Socialist Society in America while also being an honorary president of the National Education Association. He promoted Secular Humanism in his book, A Common Faith, and was the leading force behind bringing a group of German intellectuals-from the “Frankfurt School”—to America….

One of Dewey’s most famous quotations sums up his philosophy, now prevalent in America’s educational system and curriculum: 

𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗻𝗼 𝗚𝗼𝗱 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗻𝗼 𝘀𝗼𝘂𝗹. 𝗛𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲, 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗻𝗼 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱𝘀 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗼𝗽𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝗮𝗹 𝗿𝗲𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗶𝗼𝗻. 𝗪𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗱𝗼𝗴𝗺𝗮 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝗲𝘅𝗰𝗹𝘂𝗱𝗲𝗱, 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗶𝗺𝗺𝘂𝘁𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲 (𝘂𝗻𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗴𝗲𝗮𝗯𝗹𝗲) 𝘁𝗿𝘂𝘁𝗵 𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝘀𝗼 𝗱𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗯𝘂𝗿𝗶𝗲𝗱. 𝗧𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗻𝗼 𝗿𝗼𝗼𝗺 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗳𝗶𝘅𝗲𝗱, 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗹 𝗹𝗮𝘄, 𝗼𝗿 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗮𝗹 𝗮𝗯𝘀𝗼𝗹𝘂𝘁𝗲𝘀.”

para59r

Not sure if this is what spurred the this convo as I don’t recall having seen the story posted but just yesterday, every democrat in the House of Representatives voted for infanticide. Everyone but Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas voted to kill babies outside of the womb.

This is quite the evolution devolution of thought for those on the left.

Gail Combs

“…As with every other living, breathing human person, medical personnel are derelict from an absolute duty if they fail to provide care for it or, as some murderous so-called physicians have been proved to do, actually take action outside the womb to snuff out its life….”

ROBERT BAKER

This debate would depend significantly on how the subject, conscience, is defined. If conscience is meant to mean “moral compass” then its use as a guide to right living would vary significantly by culture, experience, and social factors. In that way it would not be a reliable measure to predict “normal” behavior across a sample population. I have not read the article so I can accept correction but that is just my perspective from a purely mental exercise. Metaphysical debates are prone to the debaters talking right past one another and the conclusions drawn may be due to wrong assumptions about the argument.

TheseTruths

He gives a dictionary definition, then presents his idea that the public considers conscience to be whatever their feelings dictate.

Aubergine

Could this “compass” be a matter of training?

If one is trained in youth to listen for God’s voice as one’s conscience, then later, as an adult, religious or not, could they still be hearing God over their own internal voice?

I follow “my conscience” quite a bit, while completely understanding that I am listening to God, not myself.

But if a child has no exposure to religion and the teaching of Judeo-Christian ethics, then they are learning to listen to their internal compass, which is fallible.

I’m just spit-balling. I’m sure everyone has strong opinions about this.

I think a ‘conscience’ is a Judeo-Christian cultural construct. It is ‘created’ by repetition of God’s rules, in word and deed, day after day. Proverbs 22:6

If it was innate, there would be no need to ‘train’ your kids. If it was already there and one was merely re-directing it, surely Scripture would have described such an entity and warned of the consequences connected with ignoring it.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Very much agreed. It is not in our nature to be as good as Jewish law and then Christ teach us that we can and should be.

Load the operating system, and maintain it, or you’re just the smart animal BIOS.

The idea that “God sees all” is roughly equivalent to the idea that what we do when nobody is looking matters, which is roughly equivalent to the idea of rule of law. OT in a nutshell.

Beyond this, and more generally, the idea that “you need Jesus, and you can’t do it yourself” is recognition of the Christian idea that beyond the law, we can and should adopt a “lifestyle of truth, love, and love of truth” – basically, welcoming in the teachings of Christ and the Holy Spirit – and trusting that the self-consistency of that life will answer questions not specified already. That, IMO, is key to understanding Peter and Paul and the ongoing nature of the Body of Christ / Church.

But that also sheds light on why the individual or group internal compass, not rooted in Christ and Christ’s teachings, is fallible. There is no guarantee that a group compass is infallible, and in any case, such a compass is likely unprovable as infallible. In believing in Christ, we assert that there can exist such a compass, that there is such a compass, and that it is demonstrated in Christ.

Hope that makes some sense. Long way of saying Aubergine is right that the internal compass can be wrong, and you’re right in pinning the working one – an actual functioning and non-contradictory conscience – on Judaeo-Christian ethics.

Gail Combs

“…If one is trained in youth to listen for God’s voice as one’s conscience, then later, as an adult religious or not, could they still be hearing God…”

Given Hubby is an atheist (his parents were too) but he had religious training thru College as did I, I think you are correct.

The Christian ethics STICK.

Aubergine

They do. I think it is because they are correct.

Gail Combs

The are the basis for our civilization. It is one of the reasons importing Muslims is a BAD idea.

This doesn’t make sense that grocery stores are not raising prices – unless there is political pressure being applied to them, and IMO that pressure is designed to shift people’s buying away from meat, dairy, and eggs – AND to put farmers out of business on those items.

Yes. They can still impeach him if he’s out of office, but it wouldn’t have the same impact.

pgroup2

I doubt the Supremes would say it’s okay once someone leaves office. Since at that point a person is a private citizen, it would raise serious equal protection issues and due process issues.

TheseTruths

I was just going by things i had seen when this came up regarding Trump, like this article, which might be completely biased.

https://verdict.justia.com/2021/01/28/impeaching-a-former-president-is-plainly-constitutional

Two days ago, all but five of the fifty sitting Republican United States Senators voted to dismiss the House’s second impeachment of Donald Trump, relying on the nakedly dishonest argument that the Constitution does not allow former federal officials to be impeached and tried by Congress. That Republican ploy was a travesty, and it is good that it failed.

Many scholars and commentators have already weighed in on the Republicans’ argument, and the overwhelming weight of opinion is that there is no constitutional bar to impeaching or trying a former president. One particularly good op-ed discussing this question was penned by Professor Laurence Tribe, who forcefully responded to a contrarian (or, more accurately, a crankish) view that had been advanced by a retired federal judge.

pgroup2

“… might be completely biased.”

OMG! You’re killing me!

Laurence Tribe??? There isn’t a more biased commie available.

TheseTruths

There are other articles out there, probably also with the same slant. And their opinions would probably do a 180 if it were JB who was out of office and might be impeached.

Sadly yes, been here for sometime. Just now being exsposed to the SHEEPLE who never pay attention. So will they even realize it?

phoenixrising

totalitarianism, specifically Fascism … alignment between the State and Corporations ….
communism:  a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed

not to quibble but no segment of the people is controlling us…

I’m not keen on labels… they are too often abused and the Cabal certainly redefines most labels these days (Orwell warned us, right)

It’s the bankers… the neocons and the corporations/oligarchs … the 1% who pull the strings … they do what they want, never mind labels.

my ‘opinion’ of course … but in my view, labeling it communism or fascism is too vague (which is usually the intent of course) and doesn’t help the people fight against it… shadow boxing comes to mind.

para59r

Yep. When we look at totalitarianism, its due north on the compass, a few degrees to the left lies communism and few degrees to the right lies fascism. They are freakin very close neighbors and the really bad thing is they know it. We need to head South!

People have been trained to see the Communism and Fascism as polar opposites. They are not. They are literally kissing cousins. Head South!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Whatever. My comment was specifically in the context of Stalin and control of elections (“you can’t vote your way out of communism”), but I will admit that fascists and others do the same thing. Cheating is a thing for all manners of nasty groups and types.

And yeah, at the top is bankers, but nobody has seemed to take the fight directly to them, oddly. As I like to say, the winner of the first two world wars was….. SWITZERLAND.

As for classifications…..

I see fascism and communism as almost the same thing in reality.

Why?

Fascism take existing corporations and government and merges them toward each other, so that the corporations become monopolies that take direct orders from the state.

Communism (as practiced in the Soviet Union) nationalizes the same corporations and industries FIRST, and then sets up monopolies controlled by the state.

You end up in the same place, IMO.

Chinese Communism took the Soviet model and deregulated it back toward a more pre-fascist structure, but maintains strict and classic communist control. They seem to think of themselves as communists, but they’re certainly more like fascists (“ChiNazis”) by many measures.

What we have in the US resembles the occasional early alliance of the Nazis and communists in pre-Hitler Germany.

I call the more communist side the Bidenistas, and the more fascist side the Bidenazis, but together they succeeded in getting rid of Trump, and maintaining a joint authoritarian government.

So if people want to quibble, I just say “Yeah, true” and keep believing what I know to be true. Which is a complicated business!  😉

60 million Americans aborted since Roe v. Wade. At present rates we kill:

Remember Blacks are only 12.3% of the US population but 1/3 of the aborted babies.

According to U.S. census data, there were 18,871,831 black American citizens in 1960. Since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion in 1973, abortion has killed an estimated 20 million black babies — more than the entire black population of 1960.

….In providing their daily update on Hamlin, the Bills said he continues to breathe on his own 𝗯𝘂𝘁 𝗿𝗲𝗺𝗮𝗶𝗻𝘀 𝗶𝗻 𝗰𝗿𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center…. 

He is in critical condition and looks like he is in the critical care ward BUT HE IS WEARING A TEE-SHIRT THAT PULLS OVER THE HEAD??? WTF?

Sorry I still think that photo is ‘off’

comment image

Linda Harrison

The shirt could have been slit up the back and put on from the front, because of the way the shirt is “wrinkled”. I can’t imagine that the hospital would allow him to wear that shirt as wrinkled as it is against his back. Sheets and clothing must be extremely smooth to keep from causing creases on the skin. I agree it is a photo op.

BB

It appears that the only piece of medical equipment attached to him is oxygen and that is easy to remove for a short time so the shirt could go over his head. The shirt probably appears “wrinkled” not because it is wrinkled but rather it is not completely pulled down in the back. Probably only had it on for a short moment. Agree—photo-op.

Linda Harrison

Thank you, I couldn’t tell what medical equipment was attached to him and wasn’t able to enlarge the photo I figured the shirt wasn’t pulled down in the back but that would also happen if it was slit up the back like they do in nursing homes. Not like any critical care unit I have ever seen.

Here’s a screenshot from January 7th

Damar Hamlin posted a screengrab of a FaceTime convo he was having with Michael Rubin and Meek Mill.

We’re told they were talking about Fanatics — MR’s company — donating all the money they’re making on Hamlin jersey sales to charity.

Damar Hamlin’s health has, thankfully, improved dramatically … so much so, in fact, that the guy is active on social media again … and his message is one of gratitude and thanks.

The Bills safety — who’s been receiving treatment in a hospital for several days now, following his horrifying on-field collapse — posted to IG for the first time since the life-threatening incident. He compiled shots of himself, seemingly from the fateful day in question.

The final slide in his 4-pic post shows a quote doctors told him when he was finally awake and talking on his own. It’s the “you won” line, which resonated with him.

Damar adds, “When you put real love out into the world it comes back to you 3x’s as much…The Love has been overwhelming, but I’m thankful for every single person that prayed for me and reached out. We brung the world back together behind this. If you know me you know this only gone make me stronger. On a long road keep praying for me!”

TheseTruths

My thoughts on Hamlin have been consistent throughout. I said yesterday that the jab was the real conspiracy. There are multiple layers of theories that require multi-dimensional thinking, and some of them I reject outright. That doesn’t mean I don’t think info about the vax is being covered up.

There is a theory that people in that photo are imposters. I reject that out of hand. Other theories have been presented that I don’t think are probable as well. That doesn’t mean the NFL isn’t trying to cover its tracks.

I don’t think that every unexplained detail is a reason for these kinds of theories:
— that the photo in the hospital isn’t real
— that Hamlin isn’t really recovering and they’re covering that up
— that our not seeing Hamlin leave the hospital is reason for suspicion
— and more.

I also don’t see what the benefit would be in covering up a theoretical death or brain injury. It could be attributed to a chest blow and that would be the end of it. But with Hamlin recovering, it’s, “See, it wasn’t so bad. All is well.”

Whether Hamlin and/or his family are cooperating in a coverup is another matter that I’ll not get into here.

It goes without saying that these are my opinions about ideas, not personal statements about anyone.

TheseTruths

Rapaport said Hamlin’s 4-year, $3.64 million contract contains a standard split to pay him at a lower rate if he ended up on injured reserve.

His contract says if he is on injured reserve he would get paid at a lower rate. They have placed him on injured reserve, knowing he won’t be able to play again, but are paying him the full rate. The NFL definitely does not want people to have any reason to ask questions.

She took my recommendation, but said that it goofed up her ability to get to sleep that night, but might try it again at a different time of day.

I managed to stammer through a conversation about the weather while she was doing the draw, which is stunningly different from my usual behavior.

After I got home, however, I had a tendency to zone out while alternately feeling cold and warm for several hours.

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.

Clearly, despite generally rising temperatures and more energy in the system”, the variations in rainfall in Sacramento have been getting less extreme, not more extreme … go figure.

Look at that graph and then look at this especially the 1930s when the USA had high temps and major drought. Also over that time period the temperature WAS NOT RISING! This is the boundaries for PLANTS AND PLANTS DO NOT LIE! You can’t grow oranges in North Carolina. Actually you can no longer grow oranges in northern Florida where once there were orchards.

Overview

The sun continues to be very quiet and it has been without sunspots this year 62% of the time as we approach what is likely to be one of the deepest solar minimums in a long, long time. In fact, all indications are that the upcoming solar minimum may be even quieter than the last one which was the deepest in nearly a century.  In addition, there are now forecasts that the next solar cycle, #25, will be the weakest in more than 200 years.  The current solar cycle, #24, has been the weakest with the fewest sunspots since solar cycle 14 peaked in February 1906. Solar cycle 24 continues a recent trend of weakening solar cycles which began with solar cycle 21 that peaked around 1980 and if the latest forecasts are correct, that trend will continue for at least another decade or so..

https://arcfieldweather.com/blog/2019/6/19/1030-am-now-entering-a-deep-solar-minimum-and-the-latest-forecast-for-solar-cycle-25-suggests-it-may-be-the-weakest-cycle-in-200-years

Although TSI (Total Solar Insolation) may not vary much the composition of the TSI does vary especially in the UV and EUV wavelengths and that effect ozone formation/destruction and the “puffyness’ of the atmosphere. 

NASA: Solar Variability and Terrestrial Climate

Jan. 8, 2013 

…Greg Kopp of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado, pointed out that while the variations in luminosity over the 11-year solar cycle amount to only a tenth of a percent of the sun’s total output, such a small fraction is still important. “Even typical short term variations of 0.1% in incident irradiance exceed all other energy sources (such as natural radioactivity in Earth’s core) combined,” he says. 

Of particular importance is the sun’s extreme ultraviolet (EUV) radiation, which peaks during the years around solar maximum. Within the relatively narrow band of EUV wavelengths, the sun’s output varies not by a minuscule 0.1%, but by whopping factors of 10 or more. This can strongly affect the chemistry and thermal structure of the upper atmosphere. 

Several researchers discussed how changes in the upper atmosphere can trickle down to Earth’s surface. There are many “top-down” pathways for the sun’s influence. For instance, Charles Jackman of the Goddard Space Flight Center described how nitrogen oxides (NOx) created by solar energetic particles and cosmic rays in the stratosphere could reduce ozone levels by a few percent. Because ozone absorbs UV radiation, less ozone means that more UV rays from the sun would reach Earth’s surface. 

 Isaac Held of NOAA took this one step further. He described how loss of ozone in the stratosphere could alter the dynamics of the atmosphere below it. “The cooling of the polar stratosphere associated with loss of ozone increases the horizontal temperature gradient near the tropopause,” he explains. “This alters the flux of angular momentum by mid-latitude eddies. [Angular momentum is important because] the angular momentum budget of the troposphere controls the surface westerlies.” In other words, solar activity felt in the upper atmosphere can, through a complicated series of influences, push surface storm tracks off course….. 

That is the short term variation in energy from the sun.

Long term:

Temperature and precipitation history of the Arctic

Solar energy reached a summer maximum (9% higher than at present)</b> ca 11 ka ago and has been decreasing since then, primarily in response to the precession of the equinoxes. The extra energy elevated early Holocene summer temperatures throughout the Arctic 1-3° C above 20th century averages, enough to completely melt many small glaciers throughout the Arctic, although the Greenland Ice Sheet was only slightly smaller than at presentAs summer solar energy decreased in the second half of the Holocene, glaciers reestablished or advanced, sea ice expanded, and the flow of warm Atlantic water into the Arctic Ocean diminished. Late Holocene cooling reached its nadir during the Little Ice Age (about 1250-1850 AD), when sun-blocking volcanic eruptions and perhaps other causes added to the orbital cooling, allowing most Arctic glaciers to reach their maximum Holocene extent…
