Help My Unbelief
In seeking the Lord’s help, a man came to Jesus once, fell to his knees weeping, and said, “I believe; help my unbelief” (Mark 9:24, ESV). The man’s request, startling in its paradoxical phrasing, is quite thought-provoking. How can the man say he believes and at the same time ask for help in overcoming unbelief?
The full context of the man’s prayer, “I believe; help my unbelief!” helps make his meaning clearer. Jesus had just returned from the mount of transfiguration when He came upon a large crowd surrounding His disciples. An argument was taking place, and people were stirred up. Jesus asked what was going on, and a man from the crowd explained that the disciples had been trying to cast a demon out of his son but had failed in their attempt. Jesus said, “You unbelieving generation, . . . how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me” (Mark 9:19).
The boy was brought to Jesus, but “when the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth” (Mark 9:20). After the boy’s father further explained his son’s condition, he said to Jesus, “If you can do anything, take pity on us and help us” (verse 22). Jesus assured the man that “everything is possible for one who believes” (verse 23). “Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!’” (verse 24).
Upon hearing the man’s request, “I believe; help my unbelief!” Jesus immediately spoke to the unclean spirit and permanently cast it out of the boy. Later, Jesus’ disciples inquired why they were unable to cast the demon out. Jesus told them, “This kind can come out only by prayer” (Mark 9:29).
The dominant theme in this passage is faith and doubt. Jesus’ initial response to hearing of the boy’s condition expresses His disappointment in a lack of faith: “You unbelieving generation, how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you?” The boy’s father initially seems to display a lack of faith as well. He asks Jesus to do something for the boy “if you can” (Mark 9:22). Jesus picks up on this doubt, repeating the man’s conditional statement (verse 23). In essence, He responds by saying, “What do you mean, IF I can?” He goes on to assure the man that anything is possible if he has faith. (On at least two previous occasions, Jesus had linked healing to faith in Him—Mark 5:34 and 36).
It appears that the only thing preventing the man’s son from being healed is his faith, and he realizes that he has already betrayed a lack of faith. He wants to express faith but at the same time be genuine. So he says, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” (verse 24). In essence, he says, “My faith is far from perfect. I may not have enough faith. If my faith is not enough, please help me to have enough.” It could be put like this: “I do have faith! Please help me to have even more.” Jesus is pleased with this response and heals the boy.
Most Christians can identify with this man. It is the acknowledgement of our inadequacy that we should recognize in our lives. This is true at the point of salvation. Salvation comes to inadequate sinners who realize their need and ask for forgiveness. It is impossible for “righteous” people to be saved (see Luke 18:9–14).
In the same way, Christians know what the Bible says, and we do trust God to take care of and direct our lives, but often we are faced with something that seems to overpower our faith. We don’t seem to have enough faith to follow Him in that moment, so we ask for more faith. We acknowledge that even our faith comes from God. It is His work in our lives that enables us to believe and obey.
As always, we can ask for what we need. When we doubt, we can ask for more faith. When we are wavering in our resolve to follow, we can ask for more resolve. When we are unwilling to obey, we can ask to be made willing. An unbeliever has no interest in having more faith or being made willing to obey. The believer knows that his faith and obedience are always deficient, and he will frequently ask God to enable him to live the life that pleases God. If left to our own strength and our own faith, we would never make it.
“I believe; help my unbelief” is at once a statement of faith and an admission that our faith is far from perfect.
A great — and very timely — post.
Thank you, carl.
I agree. 👍🏼
Very small ball on that chain. 😂
This is not new, but Dan Scavino reposted it. Rudyard Kipling’s “If.”
Q’s 5 Year anniversary post:
This is a scene from the 2012 Olympics in London. People are saying it shows foreknowledge of the Plandemic. But fact checkers, of course, are saying it’s no such thing. It’s a tribute to the UK health organization the NIH. Because nothing says “health” like a towering figure in black looming over hospital beds. ☠️
I don’t know if that scene was specifically about COVID, but I think some kind of global health crisis has been a dream of the globalists for a long time, with one goal being to reduce the population.
People have also said that one of the “patients” in a bed was Boris Johnson, but a fact-checking site says no, that was — are you ready? — the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. You can’t make this stuff up.
I don’t remember it, but I stopped paying attention to the Olympics a long time ago.
If that’s not supposed to be the Grim Reaper, and obviously so, what other possible explanation did they give for it at the time?
It’s supposed to be English children’s literature and the NHS. All the little umbrellas are Mary Poppins; the large dark character is Voldemort from Harry Potter (who summons in a bunch of Death Eaters); there are some parts from Alice in Wonderland.
It should be noted that J.M. Barrie, the author of Peter Pan, donated his royalties to a children’s hospital, so there is an initial connection. How it got changed into this dark fantastic production is another story….
Thank you, I’ve heard of Voldemort, but I’ve never read Harry Potter or watched any of the films.
J.M. Barrie once gave an interview where, like so many authors before him, he was asked about the source of his ideas. His reply was that coming up with ideas was not the difficult part, but only a few of them will ever pan out….where the others merely peter out…..

I’d like to see just about anything actually happen at this point 😂
Boy isn’t that the truth.
Just once I’d like to get a hit instead of striking out every time.
I can’t take credit for the suggestion though, I merely passed it along. i saw it in the replies to a tweet (but not by this fellow…) it spread quickly

Hopefully they deliver in the lower 48!

Blocked Gov’t Report Finds Fluoride Lowers Kids’ IQ, Case Heads to Court
Much more in the article. I wonder about fluoride in toothpaste. I don’t use it, but I know that some dentists still recommend it.
“Specifically, Assistant Secretary for Health Rachel Levine ”
Whoa… she’s one of their top men!
MeThinks, ya give Richard too much credit.
“Much more in the article. I wonder about fluoride in toothpaste. I don’t use it, but I know that some dentists still recommend it.”
I have questioned my dentist about the safety of fluoride several times over the years, and he always assured me it was no problem. I asked if he was aware of all the information online on this subject, and he (of course) dismissed it.
I’m printing this BRoA report and handing it to my dentist at my next appointment.
If my IQ is still high enough to figure out how the printer works.
I am over 70 and the dentist keeps asking if I want a fluoride treatment…
The report is over 1500 pages. Buy some extra toner.
Well, dropping a 1,500 page behemoth on the check-in counter will certainly make a bigger impression than a 5-page report.
If my IQ is still high enough to figure out how to change the toner, that is.
Those with thyroid issues would do well to go to greater effort to eliminate fluoride intake.
“The mechanism behind “halogen displacement” was probably best described by J. C. Jarvis, M.D. (Folk Medicine, Henry Holt & Co., 1958, HB, p. 136), who wrote: “The clinical activity of any one of these four halogens is in inverse proportion to its atomic weight. This means that any one of the four can displace the element with a higher atomic weight, but cannot displace an element with a lower atomic weight. For example, flourine can displace chlorine, bromine, and iodine because fluorine has a lower atomic weight than the other three. Similarly, chlorine can displace bromine and iodine because they both have a higher atomic weight.” Likewise, bromine can displace iodine from the body because iodine has a higher atomic weight. A reverse order is not possible.”
The article points out that fluoride is not alone in displacing iodine. Chlorine (in municipal water treatment & numerous other environmental sources), bromine (“bleached” general purpose flour, fire retardants)…the fluorine, chlorine, bromine trio represent a constant drain on the body’s supply of iodine which it needs for proper functioning thyroid and immune system function.
ChiefIO had a good article on the hazards of bromine.
2015 Bromine, Iodine, Prostate and Breast Cancer
Thyroid issues. Do well to eliminate fluoride intake. Thoughts on this one…
DW had her thyroids lopped out a couple decades ago. Couple of cancers in both.
Anyway, she pops levothyroxine daily, since her thyroids lopped out.
Avoid fluoride still? Appreciate your thoughts or direction, where to search.
Not looking for medical advice. I’ll do some searches and reading. Thanks.
This company has filters that remove most fluoride. Clearlyfiltered.com
And many other contaminates.
Yes, continue to avoid fluoride as there are numerous important ways that the body utilizes iodine & fluoride is in continual conflict with iodine.
David Brownstein states that “fluoride interferes with hundreds of enzymes in the body” Brownstein is one of the best advocates for issues of iodine & health.
His book Iodine: Why You Need It, Why You Can’t Live Without It is a good resource. It’s pricy at Amazon but is available for considerably less at Abe Books.
What he has to say about the relationship between halogens/iodine and breast cancer is worth reading.
From the book:
“Iodine is the most misunderstood nutrient.
After 17 years of practicing medicine, I can say that it is impossible to achieve your optimal health if you do not have adequate iodine levels.I have yet to see any item that is more important to promoting health or optimizing the function of the immune system than iodine.”
AND Americans are SHORT on iodine. ESP if you eat out or eat pre-prepped food. Table salt may have iodine but commercial food, despite being LOADED with salt does not.
If you are over weight, sluggish… there is a good chance you are not getting enough iodine.

Good stuff, Gail!
As always, Thank You, Gail.
I have much to sort out.
On the positive side, DW has a great diet. Daily fish and fresh fruit / vegetables.
Glad to hear it!
The fish will help a lot.
Appreciate all of the information and referrals. Thank You!
YW! Hope it all helps.
posted in the wrong spot!
SD only made 3 posts yesterday, the two Trump posts and the “Man in the Arena” video.
Trump yesterday: “PROTEST, take our nation back!”
Trump yesterday: “We just can’t allow this anymore. They’re killing our nation as we sit back & watch. We must save America! PROTEST, PROTEST, PROTEST!!!”
I’m not very good at interpreting, but it could be that DJT is using some kind of VSG subliminal messaging, to get us to, you know, PROTEST.
If so, if that can somehow be confirmed, then the question is, how shall we protest?
Almost like we’re in a scene from Monty Python’s Life of Brian…
Aubergine’s repeated counsel is a national strike. This is something everybody can do.
But it needs to be organized in some fashion. And by organized, I mean getting people on the same wavelength.
We all know how to not do something. We just need to agree on the details.
There is ONLY one person who can call for a national strike and have it happen. That is the man HIMSELF, Donald Trump.
He is the only one who commands the respect, authority, and love to get people to risk it all by quitting.
TRUMP is the only one who can do it. The question is, WILL HE?
Trump calling it, would be echoed, promoted by Bannon, Navarro, Bonginno…dozens of conservatives with large audiences.
Yes. Immediately. But only he can do it.
Because 15 days to slow the spread worked out so well. It turned into 30 days and then 3 years to control the citizens. Now fraudulently managed banks are collapsing and the Fed is bailing them out. It would need to be a precision strike. First do no harm.
“…. First do no harm….”
Excuse me that is BULL SCHIFF!
The name of the game is to REMIND THE CURSED OLIGARCHS THEY ARE NOTHING WITHOUT US THE WORKERS!!
And remember that it is the RIGHT who does the work and pays the taxes and produces the WEALTH the Banksters and Oligarchs and Political class PARASITES ARE LIVING ON!
They would be rounded up in a minute. If they round up President Trump they will not care to round up Bannon , Nevarrow Bonginno. Bannon Nevarrow are already on their jail list.
This has to be how east Germany was freed. People gather in churches all over the country and flooded the streets peacefully.
The police and military refused to shoot peaceful protesters with clergy at the helm.
Where is the clergy in this country?
I do not know.
Getting woke, most of ’em.
Where is the clergy in this country?
There’s a large Flock following Francis…
Where is the clergy in this country?
SAME place they were during Covidiocy – wear a mask, social distance, Shutdown The Churches, gat jabbed…
You got it 🙂
Compromised & corrupted
You are probably right, although I do hold out hope that something like a massive, spontaneous understanding and agreement will be made nationally.
I do not know how that happens, but I hope.
Trump himself is the ONLY way.
Persistent, aren’t you? 😀
Helps slow guy keep up.
Ya smart folk have the advantage.
Takes awhile for slow guy to get the message.
Then some more, to retain the message. 🙂
Life experience helps also.
Good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.
— Rita Mae Brown 🙂
Wise words 🙂
That made me laugh!
It’s all in fun.
Relentless. I’ve been nicknamed “Bulldog” a time or two! 🙂
I actually thought of responding to your second post, then thought: “nah, it’s Aubergine, I’m just going to let it go at that!” 😀
Deserves to have a sports team, “The Purple Bulldogs.”
Cannot be Trump we do not want a civil war we want to keep freedom. On my post above I said what happen in East Germany. People met in churches flooded the streets all over the country peacefully. Police and military refused to shoot. Clergy was at the helm.
The problem we have much clergy is attached to the worldly things not counter. They might even agree with the tyrants we have.
No when we hit rock bottom and everyone has a stake in surviving only then all Americans come together and stand up. This is no longer what party one belongs too or if one is black or white.
I hope the clergy will rise, but I don’t know if they will.
A lot of them are compromised or ‘WOKE’
Sad but true.
Suggest folks NOT hold their breath for clergy.
What did Clergy do, under Covidiocy? Posted answer above. But everyone knows the TRUTH.
That is a problem they also faulted to covid mandates.
Many did. Cowards.
I think Trump needs to be careful do not want to give the criminals more ammunition against him. Protest is good it has to come from all Americans not just MEGA and Trump. The Congress has to do the right thing, good FBI, DOJ and others like democrats republicans alike who see themselves as Americans not tools for China or New World order.
Just my opinion. Black and white churches Jews and Muslims forming a wall against dictatorship.
He does have to be very careful.
We all have too.
Absolutely. They are blaming him for J6 even though he did nothing wrong. They are itching to find something else to (fraudulently) charge him with.
They are waiting to get something because he has not don anything wrong.
I feel for the an 6 group and now there are 1000 more.
We can suggest thru the Tea Party
Who I would think has the ear of President Trump.
However I agree with Aubergine.
Only TRUMP can call it.
Just remember you had a POSITIVE HOME COVID 19 test and are feeling too sick to drive to the doctors’… 😋
What we need to strike / boycott is Washington DC!!!
The elites don’t gaf if we stay home for a month . They did that to us already in 2020 and it didn’t faze them.
We need to strike / shut down DC. No food,no restaurants. no trash pickup. no planes in or out so they don’t just go on vacation. clog the roads. Inconvenience them in their habitat. Shut down their world for 2-4 weeks.
“We’re all individuals.”
Indeed we are, but what is the source of the quote?
I didn’t remember writing it myself, and a word search on this page for “all individuals” doesn’t turn up any post besides yours (and now this one, after it posts).
This is a good article about what to do and not do when protesting, but it doesn’t answer the question of how to plan the protest.

George Soros Exposed as Major Force Behind Trump’s Prosecution and Imminent Arrest
By Kyle Becker
March 18, 2023
Soros looks crazy most dangerous people are the crazy one.
Well, the rain has moved in.
Wise words from the Cat:
You know I’m 100% Trump 2024 but I still love DeSantis as my Governor – but if DeSantis doesn’t come out soon and make a bold statement against this political witch hunt against Trump – the primary is already over.
This is 1,000 times bigger than any Presidential primary. Our country can’t survive with this communist two-tiered justice system. I’m watching this closely to see who will stand on principle, no matter the political fallout, and who will not. This is about saving our country from the enemy from within – not one person’s political future.
^^^ The Cat would be correct. United we stand, divided we fall.
Even if DeSantis came out now, it is too late. Either way DeSantis is being managed.
Same goes for 99% of the silent R-Cons.
Have to say, DeS has turned out to be yet another huge disappointment. Part of me still hopes his connections and tactics are just misdirection.
Only Trump endorsement can save the dude’s ass at this point. He just lost his chance at 2028 as far as I am concerned.
Me too. How can DeS look at himself in the mirror?
You are correct; too late for Ron DeStablishment. He’s done.
Waiting for the command from his handlers.
Yes. Not speaking up seems cowardly. This goes on his “permanent record” and will always be a strike against him.
I think Trump put him in a box on purpose, to expose him to the American People.
Desanty is a career politician and harvard lawyer. He is the establishment personified.
If he supports Trump, he has to go all-in, at that point his political future is tied to Trump, because the establishment will abandon him (and try to destroy him).
If he does not support Trump, he keeps the establishment support, but MAGA abandons him, and his political future is over.
So that’s his choice.
Abandon Trump and end his political career now.
Or support Trump, and if Trump succeeds, then Desanty’s political career will continue, as long as he is useful to Trump.
Seems like the choice should be obvious, but the establishment is waving lots of money under his nose, and who knows how much blackmail they have on him.
Either way, money and/or blackmail, he’s a product of the establishment (UniParty) and he is owned by the establishment (UniParty), and that is precisely what we are trying to break free from.
From our Great Georgia Girl – MTG!
Biden’s DOJ is coordinating with the Democrat Manhattan DA to arrest Donald Trump, the top Republican Presidential candidate for 2024, and charge him with a fake outdated misdemeanor charge.
It’s ALL FOR POLITICS!
This is what they do in communists countries to destroy their political opponents!
Republicans in Congress MUST subpoena these communists and END this!
We have the power to do it and we also have the power to DEFUND their salaries and departments!
Enough of this!
The American people deserve a government that actually works for them NOT a bunch of self centered communists who bail out their donors, protect the elites, and weld their power to punish their political enemies!
To restore our nation to law and order…..
Some people need to be given the a choice – between Exile or Execution.
The US needs to bring back the good old practice of declaring someone Persona Non Grata – who commits treason, abuses their office for profit with a foreign country, or foments political acts* in violation of our Constitution.
The exiled person and all their kinfolk connected financially to them**, would be prohibited from visiting, residing, doing business, having any political activity in this country – even through other persons or non-profit groups.
And there would be sanctions against any US citizen doing business with those Exiled, giving them any money or assets or relaying communication from those exiled.
Exile would include the seizure of all assets, including those put into any tax shelter, foundation or non-profit. These assets should go into a fund to repay harm to individuals, to the country from this person’s nefarious activities.
That means permanent exile – exile without choice of destination***.
*Political acts such as false flag riots, bank runs, election fraud, political prosecutions.
**Individuals such as Soros and his sons, Biden family, Obama and Michelle, Pelosi and sons, etc.
***Exile Soros and his sons to Russia, Obama and Michelle to Iran, all the Biden crime family to China…
Well, actually, as I posted yesterday there is no exile for treason. If you are a citizen even dual citizen, the penalty is death. The evil NWO globalists want depopulation, give it to them. They can go first.
Sedition is generally 20 years in prison. GITMO qualifies. Then release them into Cuba.
Cuba would likely consider that an act of war.
Good. After they sent all of their criminal Marielitos in the boatlift days, we need to return the favor.
We have to double and triple down on NONVIOLENT direct action.
Protest. Demonstrate. Obstruct.
Even civil disobedience where appropriate.
And NEVER take the bait!
Be strategic. Have objectives and clear instructions for protest participants.
Do not leave mobs up to their own will.
We win by being right and being smart and by the grace of God.
It’s just my opinion, but now is the time to stop infighting and come together.
Unity is a win.
We are 60 hours from a purported arrest of DJT.
Patriot on patriot is not acceptable under normal circumstances, and this is far from the norm.
Anyone operating as a divisive voice amongst us all right now should be scrutinized and questioned as to motive.
We have decided to do a simple hashtag for Monday’s Prayer Vigil for President Trump. This way it can/will live past Monday.
If you have a show on Rumble or if y’all have favorite shows or hosts, include them and use this hashtag.
I suggest we have a prayer vigil for undefinedundefined on Monday night.
Catherine and I will organize the structure.
She can kick it of on her locals channel during her 6:00 central show.
I’ll do something live on Patriot Games on Rumble after Catherine’s show.
Maybe some of our friends with shows can pick up in sequence after that or we can stream it all through Patriot Games.
Phillips is always talking about standing against divisiveness. Problem is, the talk about divisiveness is itself divisive. Phillips does this from time to time: pit people against each other by focusing on who is divisive and who is not. In the past, Phillips has implied that those who questioned Phillips were being divisive
I know people on this site love Phillips. I have always thought he was a phony and a BS artist.
Warnings about divisiveness are pointless, except for creating division.
Telling people to stop being divisive is like telling a wild person to calm down.
There are ways of doing things. Making broad, pointless statements IMO is not one of them.
I do NOT see the divisiveness among Conservatives. Have posted as much.
There IS plenty of divisiveness among Uniparty, with
Totally agree. Very little divisiveness among patriots, and very little division. We all agree on the broad issues, even if the details get debated.
We do sometimes disagree on personalities, sometimes heatedly, but disagreement about personalities is trivial in the big picture of things. The personalities will sort themselves out. For example, it took years to actually see Pence for who he really is.
“…I do NOT see the divisiveness among Conservatives….”
I certainly have or did you forget the nastiness over General Flynn/Lin Wood.
There is also infighting between MG Show and Badlands. (BOTH were invited to the Pit by Gregg.)
So yes there is infighting and YES it should STOP!
Personalities! That is all they are!
JMO, they are irrelevant.
The personalities are ego driven, IMO. They mat be right or they may be wrong.
Patriots don’t care. If a personality has good information and insights, wonderful. But there is only one person/politician who has the loyalty of all patriots.
Yea. OK. It should stop. Off my radar, as I pay no attention to them.
It is happening among “influencers” in the conservative movement that most of us probably don’t see or even know about. I’ve seen examples of it on other sites. Those are the people Phillips is talking about. They are more likely to be the ones who have attached themselves to the work he is doing.
Yes, Professor Clements, Clay Clark, as I also said, In the Matrixxx and Shady Grooove (MG Show) have a fight going on with the Badland crew AND Lin Wood…
Exactly. None of their disputes amount to a hill of beans. MAGA has risen above all that through hard experience, IMO.
Let the dead bury their dead.
bakocarl – we seem to be in sync. Of course, the Holy Spirit would have it no other way. I will be releasing a BIMD today about trying times, which will be followed next by – faith.
Bless you, my brother. Thank you.
OK I’ll go first with the easy shot, how long does it take to change a wheel.
(Assuming that all the wheels are interchangeable and there’s room to carry a spare.)
How long do those solar panels last and how much does it cost to change them out?
STATIONARY panels have a name plate 25 year life expectancy, but anyone who has had a pitted windshield that had to be replaced or fogged headlights, knows that traveling on dirt roads or dusty/pollen covered roads can considerably shorten that life expectancy… And then there is the rock that gets tossed up and smashes windows. headlights or in my case 2 mirrors in the last couple months…
We have solar charged electric fence units and the panels got nasty pretty quickly from dust dirt and pollen. The big problem is cleaning without scratching and that is not as easy as it sounds. One charger we bought 25 years ago it lasted about 5 years. The current chargers, One bought within the last ten, One bought within the last five and one bought last fall. They ALL need cleaning. We have ONE left working, the newest one. The other two need to be cleaned and taken apart and fixed.
So our experience is ~ five year life expectancy.
Should You Clean Solar Panels? Your Questions Answered
Why solar panels do not always live up to expectations
“In fact, we found a 6 percent difference with expected performance! This implies that sellers of PV systems tend to overestimate the efficiency of rooftop PV systems…”
As does human nature as it relates to profit motive and making sales 😂
The ratings are ALWAYS based on OPTIMUM conditions no matter what the product.
Why can’t they put a very thin, very clear, removable sheet of plastic over the panel.
Then, after some period of time, pull off the (by then) dirty sheet of plastic, and the panel underneath is like new again.
If that can be made to work, then instead of one sheet, you could have a stack of 5 sheets, or 10 sheets, removing one every few years, essentially renewing the solar panel every time.
The problem is each sheet would block some of the solar energy. A better approach is ONE sheet that can be removed and replaced.
Funny how I can not find ONE picture of a solar panel that is NOT pristine!
They are still a lot cleaner than our solar fence chargers especially now during pine pollen season.
Thanks Carl, I am sure am not the only one who’s been in this position.
True the Vote Requests Special Master in Konnech Case
Getting rid of ERIC is a MAJOR STEP in cleaning up elections (and voter rolls.)
Back in November or December, I signed up as a volunteer to clean up voter rolls. Two separate sites. Can’t recall who the sponsor / organization was. Pillow Man may have been one. NOT disparaging Mike L. Thus far crickets.
My guess is, the efforts are in large cities, easier to create fraudulent votes.
Contact your County Election commission (or whatever it is called) because it should happen in every county, big or small. If no response, contact your State GOP Party office. Generally, if a resident doesn’t vote in 2 or more election cycles, they are purged. It’s a manual project …
Great advice. You can also see if there is a Tea Party in your state/area.
Page down and on the right is a list by state.
Thanks Gail …
Thanks. Will look at the link.
First pass. NV has some Tea Party in Vegas. Contact is FB link, which requires login. Yea, no.
Sent Tea Party an email asking about Northern NV. Reno or Carson City. Guessing it’ll not pan out for me.
Will contact local Voter Registrar.
Thanks very much Gail
^^^ Now there are a few statements of the obvious. Which I missed. Thanks,
I will follow up locally.
We really do not have the $$$ or man power to do the organizing that the Sinister Left has. And yeah, given those constraints they would focus on big cities.
Antifa and BLM would be right out there stirring fights.
ARCHBISHIP VIGANÓ speaks out against Soros, Schwab and Gates, the stolen election of 2020 and how “the deep state and the deep church managed to get Pope Benedict XVI to resign and to elect a person pleasing to the New World Order, the Jesuit Jorge Mario Bergoglio.”
That about covers it.
I added that to National Security Study Memorandum NSSM 200 because the Catholic Church was critical to the Eugenicists plans for population control. They HAD to change the Church’s position on birth control and abortion.
Verse of the Day for Sunday, March 19, 2023
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV)
Thank You, Jesus, for blessings received and prayers answered!!!

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.
PLEASE PRAY FOR ONE ANOTHER
Fox News Reports That Donald Trump is ‘Walking Back’ His Comment He Will Be Arrested on Tuesday
Trump raising visibility on the Manhattan DA, Create-A-Trump-Crime, was masterful. IMO.
Great visibility on the sham. Perpetual, persecute Trump. Even normies gotta be seeing the BS.
ESPECIALLY since the feds tried to make a case AND FAILED…
As I showed yesterday, even if the Piece of Schiff upgraded a misdemeanor to a felony, ONLY a class A has a statute of limitations allowing the case to proceed and this is NO MURDER or the like.
POTUS Trump is USING this Schiff to his advantage by GETTING THE FAKE NEWS TO COVER IT despite the fact they were not planing to ALLOW Trump ANY COVERAGE….
DJT: Does my yoke fit well?
The Press: Yes, master.
I agree fully 🙂
Yes. Mission accomplished.
That’s just a rehash of yesterday’s fox report. They need to keep it at the forefront for maximum effect.
The DA is just reading his script, if he even knows what it says. IMO the response was put out by his handler.
The Tuesday arrest was leaked to Trump and he took it to we the people. This was smart of him getting in front of it. I think the DA is pretending it is not Tuesday they want to surprise POTUS on what day.
Egg Prices Falling From Record High
By Brett Hershman – Freelance Writer
Mar 19, 2023
After months of price hikes, egg prices are finally starting to come back to earth.
Egg prices fell 6.7% in February, according to new Consumer Price Index (CPI) data.
In October, the average price of a dozen Grade A eggs were $2.90 and subsequently increased every month until it reached a record high of $4.82 in January, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis.
Prices now sit at $4.21 per Grade A dozen. While the price is finally cooling, it is still 55% higher than a year prior as the avian flu epidemic has played a role in higher egg prices that forced some consumers to smuggle their eggs from Mexico, according to CBS News.
. . . MORE . . .
Nearly all Smith’s eggs out this way are cage free, $4.99 dozen and up.
Recently, Smith’s egg display case has a small area, (top, left) with a dozen eggs $2.99. Not marked with the cage free BS.
Most shoppers don’t notice the $2.99 dozen. Commonly, I’ll point out the $2.99 dozen, available. Folks are surprised, putting down the expensive eggs for the $2.99.
Smith’s/Krogers shoppers may want to scan all the egg prices for a lower cost.
Yea, I’m sure someone is gonna tell me cage free are more humane, taste better or somethin. Not interested. Nor do I do, foo-foo, food stuff – follow the herd.
Cage free does not mean free range.
Oh. That makes sense. thank you. Still, I don’t fret over any of it.
I buy free range and go to the URL to see the chicken running around. Yes I know I am one of those and I also like to know what they feed the chicken. I can taste the difference. OK I pay a around $745 on a good day. As my husband says we do not eat out or when we do very seldom. We cut that back since we like our own food better and know what is in it.
I am lucky.
The neighbor we lent our goats to to clear out a wooded area has offered us eggs from his chickens. I offered to pay for some of the feed but he said No.
So I will offer pony rides during the week instead. 😎 (He has two youngsters)
That is very nice and good arrangement 🙂
The eggs became smaller for a while even though they were supposed to be large. The last two weeks the eggs were normal size again. I think something is happening.
Yea, the chicken feed thing remains a question, in my mind.
A month or so ago, saw an article Some organization ran tests on various Tractor Supply chicken feed. Most were between good and some issues. NOTHING was identified, which would stop laying hens from producing.
I read that also. Suggestion was to make own chicken feed. People used to do that.
Homemade Chicken Feed Recipe
Excellent article and goes into a lot more than just feed.
Chicken Scratch Feed: All You Need To Know Before Feeding
Again a lot of good info.
Obviously Chicken Scratch was the food fed to chickens for 100s of years. On the other hand those long ago chickens were ALSO acting as predators to insect pests as well as clean up crew for manure and such. The grain was used to keep them tame and bring them into the coop for the night.
Chicken scratch was what I used to cut the feed for my goats, especially my bucks when all you could get was a dairy goat feed. (WAY TOO HIGH IN CALCIUM. it would clog up the poor bucks.)
Then scratch became nothing but cracked corn so I quit buying it.
More keeper information. Thanks.
There’s another great idea. Thanks.
A diet change makes most animals reluctant.
For horses, cows sheep and goats, a drastic diet change SPELLS DEATH!!!
It is the leading cause of death in horses and a major problem in the others as well because none of those animals can vomit like predators can.
In cows it is called bloat.
The local Aldi here is going through another egg shortage. The egg shelf has been bare for three weeks and counting. No regular eggs, no organic, NOTHING. The local grocery chain remains stocked, though. No idea what’s going on with Aldi.
Most likely, their contract expired and they can’t agree to the price for a new one. Hence, no eggs from those suppliers. Aldi could go on the open market [co-ops, individual farmers] but those prices are high enough that it couldn’t pull customers from the chain stores. Plus, they couldn’t supply the volume Aldi needs.
I think you’re right. Thanks for the explanation!
That was wonderful Carl, and just what I needed this morning. Thank you.
TMZ states that Ms. Schwartz has an already-existing heart condition — leaky valve — that was diagnosed in 2014.
IMO, this prior diagnosis will be used as the “excuse” for her fainting on-air.
What will NOT be said is that if Ms. Schwartz is “vaccinated and boosted” (a near-100% chance), that any COVID-19 “vaccine” she took MOST LIKELY contributed to, if not was the SOLE CAUSE of, her on-air faint.
IMO, Ms. Schwartz needs, at minimum, a D-dimer test to check for elevated blood microclot presence in her body.
Oh it couldn’t be the jab now, come on. Wink wink……
Move along nothing to see here.
Hopefully here co-workers will wake up at least.
Appreciate added information.
My guess. California. LA. Faux Media employee. She Be Jabbed. Likely Boosted. ^^^ Contributing factor(s).
Hopefully she or someone in her trusted circle will recommend, D-dimer test. Quack prolly will not.
With all of the talk about protest out there right now, I have a few things to say. I am compelled.
I encouraged and was a cheerleader for attendance in D.C. on January 6. I wanted to go SO BAD. And what that cheerleading has resulted in for some here weighs on my heart like a stone every day, as does the plight of others who went and are persecuted because of it.
I don’t have a lot of money, so it was going to be a stretch for me to go no matter how I got there. But I tried so hard. I started to fix things on my car, to be able to drive it across the country. I looked at plane tickets I couldn’t afford. My son, my baby, said he’s was coming with me if I went. He wouldn’t allow me to go alone.
The harder I worked, the bigger the obstacles became.
I will believe until the end of my days that God saved me from it, by making it almost impossible for me to do. I fixed one thing on the car, and another thing was broken. I couldn’t find plane fares that worked. Hotel prices skyrocketed in a matter of a couple of days, and then rooms disappeared altogether. Money troubles arose at home, making the finances even harder. Friends who would normally be encouraging me weren’t. On and on it went, until finally I got the message.
God said NO. Thanks to Him that I finally had the sense to listen. They probably wouldn’t have arrested me; they would have gotten my child, and thus destroyed me forever. Because that would have done it.
Now we are contemplating protest again. Many are giving advice to be “peaceful.” Well, how many peaceful wanderers through the Capital have been arrested, and how many more will be? How many rot in jail for NOTHING? “Peaceful” means nothing to these Communist thugs.
We have the means, if we are smart, to shut this whole damned country down, in a matter of a few days. We can just quit working for them. We can pull our money from their big banks and put it in a credit union. We can stop buying anything at all for a while. It won’t take forever, only a couple of weeks would do it, if we ALL did it together.
But there is only ONE MAN who can call us to it. I hope he hears me out here in the hinterlands. I hope my little post on Truth Social reaches his eyes. I hope he sees that I won’t play into the hands of the evil ones by doing what they want and going out onto the streets, and I’d bet there are many others who won’t either.
If Trump stated “The Storm is upon us. Americans and Patriots, sit down, just quit everything, and STRIKE,” we would. We would just sit down. And that would bring an end to it. America does not function without 75+million Patriots working, banking, investing, and buying. And they can’t persecute, arrest, and imprison us for doing, literally, NOTHING.
Your decision to not go, was absolutely the right call. Posted as much, back then.
I am grateful, you did post an intention to go. IIRC. Something about, “My General has called”. <<< Resonated with me. Noodled on it a few minutes. Got me off my ass. Looked at DW and told her I was going. DW thought I was nuts. Then agreed to go.
Have no regrets going, being on the Mall that day. Glad I did. Glad to have been one of the few hundred thousand, I guess it was.
On J6, walking from the Washington Monument area to the Metro train. Looking at the Capitol Building. Lotsa folks walking towards the Capitol Building. Asked DW if she wanted to walk over to the Capitol Building. (Over the years we’ve walked the entire Mall and Monuments several times. Walking miles no big deal. Do it to this day.) DW, NO. Rarely is DW that emphatic. Metro train to Tysons corner it was. If on my own, not good.
IF a General Strike or whatever is called, I’ll either sit at home, or more likely find a Federal Building in reno to mill around. All legally. 100% mindful of Antifa, BLM, AND FIB instigators. First sign of them, I’d go elsewhere, or home.
In 2020, when State Capitol rallies were common, BLM was present. Lotsa State LE and Sheriff Deputies present. Posted it back then.
You were wise to heed your DW. And she was 100% correct. I’m glad.
“….We have the means, if we are smart, to shut this whole damned country down, in a matter of a few days. We can just quit working for them. We can pull our money from their big banks and put it in a credit union. We can stop buying anything at all for a while. It won’t take forever, only a couple of weeks would do it, if we ALL did it together….”
If every MAGA person stayed home the Country would SCREECH to a HALT.
Remember we want to DESTROY the FED and DESTROY the ‘Financial’ Institutions that CONTROL the Transnational Corporations thus DESTROYING the OLIGARCHS intent on CONTROLING US!
I will add that we should ALL strive to support America First or small American busineses.
