Folks, I’m going to put this as bluntly as I can:

THE BIDEN CRIME FAMILY IS UNDER INVESTIGATION RIGHT NOW.

-That’s why Biden is speaking through his lawyer.
-That’s why there are these searches by his lawyers.
-That’s why there are searches by the FBI.
-That’s why there is a Special Counsel.

Who, btw, officially started work as a Special Counsel TODAY.

This isn’t just about misplaced documents that are marked classified. If it was, the FBI would not be taking documents which are not classified and which date all the way back to Biden’s days as a Senator.

Everything [they] accused Trump of, everything [they] put Trump through, is being reversed onto [them].

It’s beautiful and amazing.
The best show ever.
Enjoy it.

Cursive handwriting and other educational anachronisms

I don’t get it. This morning I responded to a poll in the online blog of the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC, the conservative answer to AARP) regarding cursive handwriting. Specifically: “Cursive writing (“handwriting”) has been on the decline for over a decade, though 21 states still mandate it in their curriculums. Should it still be taught?”

I found myself in the distinct minority by voting “No.” An overwhelming majority of respondents think cursive is necessary to read historical documents and foster critical thinking by 50 to 1. I know many of you will agree with that view; you will insist that the curricula of our old school days were more effective in training young minds and that cursive is an essential aspect of that.

But I simply do not agree. And, in a significant way, I have made my living by writing. I have been the author or coauthor of some 270 peer-reviewed scientific publications and 10 books, along with a handful of patents. And since 1983, all were done on some form of computer or another device that is not a pen. Admittedly, my handwriting was the despair of my parents and teachers.

Sure, I have jotted notes by hand. I have a file cabinet of my notes from grad school, and my lab notebooks were all handwritten. In some cases, such as with a potential patentable invention, such notebook entries were punctuated by a witness who had to attest in (hand)writing: “read and understood.”

But the vast majority of my written output had to be electronic, or my publishers would have thrown it back in my face! That’s just the simple reality. This got me thinking about some of the other anachronisms of my schooling, distinct from my education.

As the child of an educator, there are multiple reasons to learn cursive. The first is brain development. Small motor control in the fingers is another, which as a craft artist I can attest is necessary. Another is notation retention when things are written down. Of course, I have what has been described as pretty handwriting, so I’m biased.

And now for the business portion of the post borrowed from Tuesday:

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. In that spirit, though, threats of violence real or hypothetical are out of bounds.

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.

And Auntie DePat’s requests:

If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.

HEBREWS 13:1-8

1Let brotherly love continue. 2Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. 3Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them; and those who are ill-treated, since you also are in the body. 4Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled; for God will judge the immoral and adulterous. 5Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have; for he has said, “I will never fail you nor forsake you.” 6Hence we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper, I will not be afraid; what can man do to me?” 7Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God; consider the outcome of their life, and imitate their faith. 8Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and for ever.

ROMANS 5:1-5

1Therefore, since we are justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. 2Through him we have obtained access to this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in our hope of sharing the glory of God. 3More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which has been given to us.

PSALMS 117:1-2

1Praise the LORD, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! 2For great is his steadfast love toward us; and the faithfulness of the LORD endures for ever. Praise the LORD!

MARK 16:15-20

15And he said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will accompany those who believe: in my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.” 19So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. 20And they went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the message by the signs that attended it. Amen.

On this day…February 3rd 1966

First Soft Landing on the Moon
February 3nd 1966 marks the first soft landing on the moon by the Soviet Luna 9 spacecraft. Luna 9 arrived three years before the American manned Apollo mission, using a landing bag to survive an impact that had destroyed all previous craft. It was the twelfth attempt at a soft-landing by the Soviet Union, and the last time the USSR could be said to be beating the USA in the Space Race.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

This right here, that you posted, is critical:

#################

More Than 4 in 10 Republicans and a Third of Parents Now Oppose Schools Requiring Children to Get Vaccinated for Measles and Other Illness, Up Since the COVID-19 Pandemic Began

If we have effective anti-viral drugs, why do we need vaccines?

#################

They’re moving everything to mRNA. NOBODY should be taking mRNA.

If you do not KNOW that a shot is not mRNA – if they don’t HAND YOU THE BOX – do not take the vaccine. Neither take anything with the spike protein in it.

TheseTruths

This has probably been covered, but I wouldn’t know precisely what to look for on the vax insert, and sometimes things have multiple names.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes, it’s tricky. One HAS to look at either the box or the product circular. My recommendation is to stall, don’t get the vaccine, get the name of the product being offered, and look it up online at home.

Somebody handy with their phone could do it in a few minutes at the doctor, but it’s important to be thorough.

Here is the Pfizer insert.

https://labeling.pfizer.com/ShowLabeling.aspx?id=16351&format=pdf

It mentions mRNA 7 times. You can see it especially in the “description” of the vaccine.

11 DESCRIPTION COMIRNATY (COVID-19 Vaccine, mRNA) is a sterile suspension for injection for intramuscular use. COMIRNATY is supplied as a frozen suspension in multiple dose vials with gray caps and labels with gray borders. Each 0.3 mL dose of COMIRNATY supplied in multiple dose vials with gray caps and labels with gray borders contains 30 mcg of a nucleoside-modified messenger RNA (mRNA) encoding the viral spike (S) glycoprotein of SARS-CoV-2. Each 0.3 mL dose of the COMIRNATY supplied in multiple dose vials with gray caps and labels with gray borders also includes the following ingredients: lipids (0.43 mg ((4-hydroxybutyl)azanediyl)bis(hexane-6,1-diyl)bis(2-hexyldecanoate), 0.05 mg 2-(polyethylene glycol 2000)-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide, 0.09 mg 1,2-distearoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine, and 0.19 mg cholesterol), 0.06 mg tromethamine, 0.4 mg tromethamine hydrochloride, and 31 mg sucrose. COMIRNATY does not contain preservative. The vial stoppers are not made with natural rubber latex

barkerjim

Odd that it only says what the stopper isn’t made of.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

It shows how bass-ackwards everything is in Government Scienceville. It makes sense in some ways – latex is what most people are allergic to – but they could at least generically describe the polymer type of the stopper without too much interference in business.

The tromethamine (both plain and as its hydrochloride) is a pale and nearly worthless attempt to alleviate the heart damage from the jab.

TheseTruths

Thank you!

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎MEGA MAGA GAME ON😎

COMIRNATY is the FDA approved version that is still NOT AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES. Right? Thus, that is NOT the version Americans receive.

AND

The Booster s/b a completely different formula. Has Delta plus Omni strains. Should replace Comirnaty. All Comirnaty doses should be trashed by now.

kalbokalbs

All, mRNA Injections should be trashed.

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎MEGA MAGA GAME ON😎

AMEN!!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

TBH, I never believed ANYTHING about the whole “Comirnaty Shuffle” – the whole thing was theater for Pfizer to appear to technically have obeyed laws and regulations, and for FDA to appear to have enforced them.

bflyjesusgrl 🍊 😎MEGA MAGA GAME ON😎

Bait and Switch to make everyone think jabs were approved to entice more to take w/o reading the fine print. PROPAGANDA.

RF121

If you are over 20, why are you taking a vaccine of any sort? If you have to do International travel I see it for cholera, yellow fever. But that is an obvious choice that has to made with that travel. But if you are staying in the U.S there is no need. And the flu shot is not a vax either but why take that? It is only partially effective if at all.

Aubergine

AMEN!

Gail Combs

You are much better off taking Vit D3 + K2, Vit C, Vit E…. Selenium, Zinc and QUercitin all through the flu season. If you start having a scratch though ==> gargle, netti-pot. Also include an antihistamine.

Remember a VACCINE is based on IMMUNE RESPONSE, so just skip the stupid vaccine.

Cholera, (bacterium Vibrio cholerae) is from infected food and water. Yellow fever is a virus from mosquito bites.

Given Covid Clot Shots & Pilots PLUS Grope-N-Fly PLUS what my ex-company was doing to aircraft turbine blades… THERE IS NO WAY ON GOD’s GREEN EARTH, I AM EVER GETTING IN A PLANE AGAIN!

RF121

Pills, potions and witches brews won’t save you. Eat healthy and be fit. You will get exposed to unhealthy people and you will catch some stuff. If you are healthy you can easily handle it.

I fly all the time. If you want to stay safe. Don’t drive.

Gail Combs

You did not see the test results, I did.

There was a $52,000,000 fine in one case. It was for an Air Force aircraft. I can no longer find any reference to the 3 commercial aircraft that were traced back to my ex-company.

RF121

When turbines fail it can be pretty impressive. I have been at several teardowns of power turbines that have come apart. Ten rows of blades taken down to the stubs.

Still, based on how things are maintained these days, and the odds of failure per miles flown. Cannot get much better.

Gail Combs

The problem was an impurity in the ceramic used in the mold that leached into the steel of the blade making it fail a lot sooner than expected.

3 aircraft went down BEFORE I was hired. The old QA manager slipped sideways into another job and they hired me. About a year later I caught the cheating on the Cert. of Analysis saying the impurity was not present.

Gail Combs

“…Pills, potions and witches brews won’t save you….

I thought about it and I disagree.

  1. @ 50 I could not put on my socks or tie my shoes. I started taking Glucosimine and Chondtotin. not only can I now touch the floor, I am off the $%#@ OTC pain killers. I ALSO ran a separat study on an elderly horse and 3 elderly ponies. I was able to return ALL of them to work after adding Glucosimine and Chondtotin to their daily feed. One of the ponies was so lame we had to take him to the vet 16 years ago. He is fine now and working.
  2. Tri-Iodine. I was sluggish and had a normal temp of 96.9 F I was also gaining weight if I LOOKED at food. If I take iodine my temperature goes back to normal and I become ‘perky’ I also lost 30 pounds.
  3. Stinging Nettle and Licorice root + vit C got me off daily antihistimine use for the first time in 60 years (H/T to our favorit egg plant)
  4. Magnesium + Melatonin now let me sleep a good 8 hours instead of the 4 to 6 hours or WORSE tossing and turning all night. (Generally ever 3rd night)

For those of us who are hypo-glycemic fructose and starches are a no-no. I had 1/2 of a tangerine this morning and could barely keep my eyes open…. And then there are allergies…  🙄  and being a small older female.

Older folks need MORE nutrients but are also more prone to gain weight. We are also less likely to eat correctly due to lethargy and no one much to cook for.

So yes, I WILL CONTINUE ‘“…Pills, potions and witches brews…” because my experience shows me they WORK.

IF you can get all the nutrients you need from food more power to you. I CAN NOT.

Rf121

The problem is your diet. Fix that, you will fix most of your issues. Most people won’t because they like their goodies.

If supplements work. Great. But it is not the root issue.

Gail Combs

Although I have a sweet tooth, I quit having sweets in the home at age 19. Beside, given a choice I rather have a steak than a candy bar and at today’s prices the steak is actually CHEAPER per pound.  🤓  I can not think of the last time I had a piece of pie…. I went to a good brand of tea + cream instead of a common brand plus sugar or honey, so long ago I can not remember. Before that milk was my drink of choice until I had problems with lactose. I also quit eating most fruit because of the Hypoglycemia. Heck the carbs in a handful of almonds I had for a snack earlier today made me dizzy .. ALMONDS for crying out loud!

So no my diet is not a problem since, given I can not eat NaCl or carbs, I am stuck with meat/fish and non-starchy veggies prepared at home or a pay a price shortly after I cheat.

Oh and wheat? forget it! Instant acid reflux.

Barb Meier

Locally, we are seeing head-on collisions daily now. Something to consider is why.

Gail Combs

Clot shot heart problems maybe?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

That’s good to know.

IMO there was some leakage of classified information about the death shots from “super-secret DARPA depop world” to “super-secret test pilot space world” that then got into military and civilian pilot world, which upped their cultural avoidance of the jabs.

nikkichico7

That’s very good to hear, thanks W0lf … 🤨🤚.

kalbokalbs

Seriously? I mean, no shit kidding, seriously?

IF true, the airlines won’t allow that to change. Can’t have airliners having a case of SADS SCS – Sudden Crash Syndrome.

  • ^^^ NOT sarcasm.

So, we are to believe the airlines schedule, around vaxed and pureblood pilots.

^^^ Is there a source that can be shared?

  • Cuz if that is true, the airlines have admitted, jabs be BAD.
  • Pilots should be suing the hell out of the airlines.

NOT holding my for the source. (It’s a SECRET) /s

nikkichico7

Thank God for that.

pgroup2

There you go again with your pesky questions.  🙃 

kalbokalbs

Maybe we should EXPAND the Injection concern beyond vaccinations.

Maybe our concern to avoid mRNA, INCLUDES ALL Injections.

Admittedly, not the sharpest tool in the shed. Guessing mRNA could be used in all injections, sprays…

Personally, I literally, do NOT trust medical world.

  • ^^^ Evaporated three years ago.
RF121

Correct. I only go to the doctors when I want to get some test that I want done. When they ask about anything else the answer is no. I do not do physicals either. Stay out of their system.

TheseTruths

I agree. I just think the information is important to have, possibly to share with others as well.

kalbokalbs

It IS important to have, share…

Brave and Free

In total agreement Wolf, this I am afraid is going to get worse if people don’t WTFU.

holly08

So moving everything to mRNA explains the push to have children Covid vaxxed. They will have the “portal” and then all the childhood/school required vaccines provide the “gene therapy”? Or is this too tinfoil hat?

Brave and Free

Makes sense, kind of like a plug and play for vaccines. Just come in and get your yearly up date.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. I’m pretty certain that they’re just starting here with this shot.

kalbokalbs

A game of chance. Sorta like Russian Roulette.

Just come in and get your yearly up date. One of them will be the final nail in your coffin.

kalbokalbs

Spot on. One of several angles to mRNA JAB Everybody.

Worth repeating AND REMEMBER. 14 of 15 gotta go. <<< THIS.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

YUP. Not tinfoil hat AT ALL. Just ask scientifically how one would go about “helping” humanity do all the “Harari / WEF” stuff – how to ACTUALLY implement it – and it MUST go through some kind of hack into the nucleus, and then into the genome, which is exactly what this tech does.

The problem is doing it to everybody. Without permission! Ridiculous!

I can see the scientific seeds of all this, and plenty more, in the response to Roswell, which shocked the hell out of secret science and military world. Among the top 10 goals from that, one would spawn MK Ultra and Elon’s neuralink stuff, another would spawn all the semiconductor tech and AI, while yet another would spawn “directed biology”, which opens up the crap Harari is pushing. This was due to the initial assessment that the “little people” were highly adapted for space flight. But the problem is that because of too much secrecy, it’s all being done badly and wrongly, because at this stage, there is no reason to do this to everybody at this stage of the development. SEE THE TAGLINE OF THIS SITE.

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert.” –J. Robert Oppenheimer

RAC

Brought to mind an advert for, if I recall wood varnish, the slogan being “it does what it says on the can”.
After what we’ve seen about the C19 jabs etc., I would doubt anything printed on the vial, or told to me at the surgery.

Slowly, and hopefully surely, the sleeper awakens.

A fun little bit of feline trivia…..

A liger is the spawn of a male lion and a female tigress. Both species are apex predators, and are well-known for being “big cats”. This is typically moderated by a gene carried by female lions and male tigers. Ligers, then, are the biggest of the big cats because their size is unmoderated through the most common genes.

This is Hercules, a liger, at 922 pounds —

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

That’s a big cat.

cthulhu

It’s the largest modern cat. Smilodon populator — the largest of the three species of “sabre-toothed cats” in the New World (the South American version) was about the same size — and the largest cat that ever lived.

Male ligers are sterile, while female ligers can be fertile.

They are really, really big.

It’s likely that there are only about a hundred in the world.

Cheetahs were Domesticated as House Pets in Ancient Egyptcomment image

Cheetahs have a generally friendly nature and weren’t particularly afraid of humans, which no doubt made them easier to trap, and there was an actual trade involved in trapping, taming, and training the large cats.

Cheetahs Alive says that, not only were they sometimes kept as pets, on the owner’s death they would be buried along with them both for companionship and because it was believed that the cat’s speed would take the owner’s soul to the afterlife more quickly….

The Egyptians tamed and trained cheetahs for hunting, as well as keeping them as exotic pets. Notice that I say trained, not domesticated, which would suggest a level of intentional breeding and selection that was noticeably absent for a couple of reasons. One is because of the previously mentioned trade in training adult cats, and another is that cheetahs apparently don’t breed well in captivity.

According to the Glyptodon, it was preferable to catch wild adult cats, rather than cubs, since adults already had fully-formed hunting skills gained in the wild. That meant that they would require less training to hunt effectively with men….

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

That was EXCELLENT WORK!!!

TheseTruths

The guy is a hero. I kept wondering how he kept from slipping off the window, and then I noticed that he holds on with his left hand the whole time. So he caught and handed the child off with just his right hand.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes! It’s important to note what he did, which is solid mountain-climbing technique (and also basic rock-climbing technique).

  • cranked out the window to the perfect angle, so he could rest his weight mostly on his feet; it was probably close to as far as it would go, but further might have been risky
  • positioned his left foot solidly on the rim of the window, now angled to bear weight nicely
  • grabbed the top of the opened window with one hand (left) in an unshakeable hold, which is never removed, and which will hold a fall if a foot slips
  • kept one foot on the window sill, so he didn’t over-weight the window (saved his fingers)
  • kept his right hand inside whenever possible to keep himself secured while repositioning his feet
  • guided and pulled the child down using his right hand, so that his body, the window, and his left arm all trapped the child
  • used a secure body grip to lift and hand the child back into the building
  • reversed his moves correctly to get back into the building

The most important thing was keeping his weight on his feet, followed by the solid left handhold, and then making the child fall to be caught in a solid stance.

scott467

“cranked out the window to the perfect angle, so he could rest his weight mostly on his feet;”

____________

Yeah, BUT…

We can be sure that hinge wasn’t designed to hold a man’s body weight, and if it collapses while his FINGERS are between the window and window frame, those fingers are gone, the man is gone, and the child is gone.

That was NVTS nuts!

pgroup2

A second person was inside pushing out on the bottom of the window. So the force was not straight down but was transferred to the second person at an angle. Had the second person lost his footing, I doubt the window would support first man’s weight.

When the child was handed in, the second person also performed a one-handed grab. The other hand kept force on the window frame.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes – the second person pushing OUT on the window was very helpful, by preventing torques from developing on the supports for the window up above. Those are what could have really messed things up. So with forces perpendicular to the window balanced, a somewhat reduced weight of the guy was directed in the line of the window itself, and those hinges performed admirably, IMO, supporting a sizable fraction of his weight!

pgroup2

Sometimes you just gotta think these things through.  🤔

Okay, I have a better idea. Someone run to the room ABOVE the child, and pull him UP… 😲

Well they managed to open every window below the kid, so yeah, why not go there and simply pull the kid in. This looks a bit like a stunt, but a nice stunt if that is what it is.

Doubtful it was a real kid.

Real kid or not, also figure the guy hanging out the window IS tethered.

TheseTruths

There is no window above the child.

para59r

I think he means the one the kid is hanging out of. Not really hanging, he’s standing on the lip of the lower window. At least till just before the guy is ready to grab him, then feet slip off. But definitely a kid.

GOP Sens. Introduce National Reciprocity for Concealed Carry
https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2023/02/02/gop-sens-introduce-national-reciprocity-for-concealed-carry/

Sens. John Kennedy (R-LA), Bill Hagerty (R-TN), and John Cornyn (R-TX), introduced legislation Wednesday to treat concealed carry permits like drivers’ licenses, making a permit from any one state valid in the other 49.

Support for this kind of thing is what keeps people voting for RINOs like Cornyn, Lindsey Graham, the late John McCain, etc.

The Senate bill is companion legislation to the House reciprocity bill, H.R. 38, which was put forward by Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) in early January.

All 50 states have concealed carry permitting systems in place but currently, some states only recognize the permits of a handful of other states. This patchwork of permit recognition makes traveling with a self-defense firearm onerous.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

On January 26th, Musk met with House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Ky.) and House Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). 

In addition, Musk met with Representative Steve Scalise (R-La.), Energy and Commerce Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.), and Oversight Chair James Comer (R-Ky.).

The billionaire only had a chance to briefly meet with House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) when walking though the halls of Congress. However, the Twitter CEO wanted to ensure to the public that he wants the social media platform to be fair to both political parties.

When I realized that “malinformation” can include pure truth, fully in context, which “harms organizations”, I realized how immoral our government has become.

Even Obama stated and ordered that evidence of crimes is not protected by classification, so this doesn’t even fully apply to classified information.

michaelh

Selective control of truth, or weaponizing truth to release it as a weapon.

In some cases it’s not enough that the truth comes out – they have to maximize the blast radius in the process.

Typically in an asymmetric manner. The truth comes out about A and is amplified with outrage. The truth comes out about B and while not suppressed, is yawned at. Redirecting the costs onto A and minimizing costs on B – even though “the truth came out”.

This is an interesting BIo by his cousin: LINK

He first began reporting on the Russian invasion from a luxury hotel in Kiev in late February before his videos went viral and made it onto Russian state TV. The next day hotel management, probably on orders from the government, kicked him out of the hotel and he took a train back to his residence city of Kharkov….

… the Daily Beast did a hit piece on him. The Daily Beast is a wholly controlled digital printer of CIA-Psyop-USA. The propaganda rag smeared him throughout using the usual panty melt editorializing of unserious Brooklynite soyisms and identitarian jargon like “manosphere” and “toxic masculinity”.

comment image

The entire piece was a slanderous work of fiction, mostly laughable if one knew who Gonzalo was, but it quickly turned dangerous when the propaganda rag contacted the Ukrainian government and alerted them to Gonzalo’s location, perhaps with the help of their betters at the CIA? Why would a “news organization” do this if not to maliciously endanger that person?

Gonzalo was making the rounds the past two months on dozens of popular YouTube channels that were dedicated to objectively discussing the war and not just lathering themselves up with Zelensky hero-worship porn and Ghost of Kyiv propaganda.

I first got a glimpse of his astute observations when he was in that hotel room in Kiev and said some obvious but insightful things about Russia’s strategy to move cautiously and avoid civilian casualties compared to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, which commenced six weeks of indiscriminate bombing and civilian deaths….

Just about everything he said was right on, just “less than” most people here.

So there are at least three clear responses to Big Daddy Gov’t trying to govern harder.

1) hell no, not a chance

2) that seems unwise so I’m not going to comply (e.g., Gonzalo Lira)

3) which arm do you want to jam the poison in? (Clott Adams)

There is enough overlap that I can relate to number 2.

But number 3 might as well be an alien species.

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.

STURM UND DRANG AND CHINESE BALLOONS2 February 2023 by Larry Johnson 93 Comments

STURM UND DRANG AND CHINESE BALLOONS2 February 2023 by Larry Johnson 93 Comments

comment image

U.S military commands NORAD and NORTHCOM have been soiling themselves during the last 48 hours because a Chinese spy balloon is flying over the United States mainland. The U.S. military initially recommended a shoot down and Joe Biden gave the greenlight. But cooler heads prevailed, in part because there was concern expressed within the military chain of command that falling debris could kill Americans on the ground, and the U.S. opted to let it fly.

The war party in the United States is apoplectic. The media is reporting that the military ignored Biden’s order. Jesse Waters on Fox News — he normally is a strident Biden critic — is openly siding with Biden and condemning the military for not popping that balloon.
This is madness. The countries with military satellites circling the globe do not have a formal agreement under international law defining where earth’s atmosphere ends and space begins. (More about that in a bit.)

Let me start with this question — what is the difference between a Chinese spy balloon flying at 55 miles above the earth collecting intelligence via sensors and cameras and Chinese spy satellite flying at 70 miles above the earth collecting intelligence with sensors and cameras? Simply a matter of altitude.

Currently there is a de facto assumption by most nations that the line dividing earth atmosphere from space is 60 miles above the earth:

Until now, most scientists have said that outer space is 100 kilometers away (i.e., 60 miles). At that point, it’s been thought, the speed needed to achieve lift in the super thin atmosphere is equal to the speed needed to simply orbit the planet; once there, a spacecraft’s horizontal pace would counteract the tug of Earth’s gravity. It’s an insight that has long been credited to aerodynamics pioneer Theodore von Kármán, though he credited the term to the world’s first “space lawyer,” Andrew Haley, in 1963.

https://www.science.org/content/article/outer-space-may-have-just-gotten-bit-closer

Con’t reading at link… posted at top … comments should be interesting

phoenixrising37

Okay … don’t want to take the time to read?

Here’s Larry’s almost last word ,,, the last is actually on balloons PERIOD!

I think the Chinese are testing the definition of what constitutes acceptable overhead surveillance and may be trying to create a predicate for destroying our satellites if we go after their balloons. The United States has long resisted any legal definition of outer space to avoid restrictions on high-altitude military activities. Advances on the technological front involving satellites and other aerial collection systems has created a very murky area that is not defined by law or treaty when it comes to intelligence collection. At least none that I am aware of.

~ Larry Johnson

or, in the pragmatic words of a commenter to his blog:

Excellent point. When you are the bully of the playground (USA), your power lasts until the first kid punches you. And even if you win? It starts the conversation. And if you lose? Ratpack time.

RAC

I don’t think china can control it, apart maybe from up and down and it’ll come down naturally at some time. Doubt there’ll be anything super secret on it, but bet there’ll be a rush to grab it where ever it does come down.

para59r

The fact that the balloon is able to stay in one area for a long period of time gives it an edge satellites do not have. IDK, but the lower altitude may give it better resolution with electronic eves dropping capabilities that satellites don’t have. Satellite capabilities also have to dedicate their spying capabilities to this or that. A balloon is much more dedicated platform that would allow for much more analysis of data collected.

We’ve all read stories about the military wanting to put up blimps over the eastern sea board for terrorist surveillance. Like this one.

https://theintercept.com/2014/12/17/billion-dollar-surveillance-blimp-launch-maryland/

This current story covering China Balloon, gives info on capabilities satellite vs balloon. Bottom line balloon can get more detailed info.

https://newsrnd.com/tech/2023-02-03-spying-from-the-sky–this-is-how-the-technology-of-stratospheric-balloons-works.Hyhd8952i.html

…For example, World View Enterprises, an Arizona-based company that develops technology for government agencies and NASA, got one of its balloons to stay in the air for 32 days in 2019.

“Our stratospheric balloons fly five times closer to Earth than satellites, providing much more detailed images and data collection possibilities,” comment their creators, who ensure that this information can be useful in maritime and government research…

…The United States Department of Defense itself invests in this type of device.

In the last two years, the Pentagon has spent about $3.8 million on balloon projects and plans to spend $27.1 million in fiscal year 2023 “to continue working on multiple efforts,” according to budget documents cited by the portal. Political….

Stories about Biden wanting to shoot down the balloon are so much bull. Being supposedly overruled by DoD just gives him deniability. No one should be taking our CCP compromised pResident at his word, nor the word of Austin or Milley, both tools of Biden and Globalists.

The spy balloon was reported at 60,000 feet altitude . . . just a bit over 11 miles.

60,000 feet is the upper edge of controlled airspace in the US (the “flight levels”). Unless something has changed since I took pilot training.

“Let me start with this question — what is the difference between a Chinese spy balloon flying at 55 miles above the earth collecting intelligence via sensors and cameras and Chinese spy satellite flying at 70 miles above the earth collecting intelligence with sensors and cameras? Simply a matter of altitude.”

When we flew U2 or SR-71 Blackbirds over Soviet or Chinese territory, they tried to shoot us down.

That’s why we had to fly higher and faster.

I don’t understand unilateral surrender by our side, when the enemy floats a balloon over our land.

We ought to shoot it down as a matter of principle, or at the very least capture it, and examine it, to find out what the enemy is up to.

AMEN!

OK let’s be real clear on this.

A “balloon” is just a term used for the general public.

Generally we think of a “balloon” as a weather balloon. It’s released, it goes unmanned into the air, and it’s uncontrolled. It follows the jet streams.

Now let’s talk about a a Stratollite.

Think of a balloon like an airship or a blimp – but with the remote control capabilities of a drone. If it’s at a high altitude, it can use solar power to recharge and stay up indefinitely like a satellite in LEO.

Wackypedia:

Example story from 2019:
https://www.space.com/world-view-stratollite-balloon-16-day-mission.html

World View Enterprises’ is about “remote sensing” – think about that from a mission perspective in Ukraine. You could keep a Stratollite up indefinitely over a terrority with continuous coverage – better than drones etc.

Remember: Whatever tech the U.S. has developed, China has STOLEN, and actively COPIED.

As far as Para’s thoughts – the obvious use is the one just discussed.

However payload deployments are also likely and possible.

You bring up an additional point. One talked about in one of the stories posted below this. Drones. This thing can also harbor miniature drones for additional data collection. Yeah, in the tin foil hat category but the tech exists.

Not Tin Foil.

“…However payload deployments are also likely and possible….”

Oh, you mean like setting fires to food processing plants?

michaelh

Possibly, yes, but I would expect that work to be farmed out to low-level actors on the ground, like insider threats and Antifa types.

Balloons?
Why not one of the THOUSANDS of Satellites?

If our military is so 100% pathetic that they won’t even shoot down a foreign adversary surveillance vehicle over American territory, why doesn’t some American take it out with a drone?

Do you know of a drone, publicly available, that will fly at 60,000 feet?

“Do you know of a drone, publicly available, that will fly at 60,000 feet?”

Yes, if you strap it to a balloon!

Then you have a maneuverable remote controlled kamikaze balloon, with cameras and GPS, that can go as high as it needs to 👍😁

The Russian Armed Forces destroyed the Norwegian NASAMS air defense system for the first time in the course of the SVO

February 3, 2023,

The Russian military during a special military operation in Ukraine for the first time destroyed the Norwegian-made NASAMS air defense system, the Russian Defense Ministry said.

A Norwegian-made NASAMS anti-aircraft missile system was destroyed near the settlement of Krasnoarmeysk in the Donetsk People’s Republic, RIA Novosti reports.
A Ukrainian Tochka-U tactical missile launcher was also destroyed there.

In late January, the Pentagon announced that the next package of military assistance to Kiev included air defense systems, including Norwegian NASAMS and eight Avengers systems.

Prior to this, Ukraine stated that Canada will spend $ 406 million on the purchase of NASAMS for transfer to Kiev.
