1Blessed is every one who fears the LORD, who walks in his ways! 2You shall eat the fruit of the labor of your hands; you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. 3Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. 4Lo, thus shall the man be blessed who fears the LORD. 5The LORD bless you from Zion! May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days of your life!


1When he came down from the mountain, great crowds followed him; 2and behold, a leper came to him and knelt before him, saying, “Lord, if you will, you can make me clean.” 3And he stretched out his hand and touched him, saying, “I will; be clean.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4And Jesus said to him, “See that you say nothing to any one; but go, show yourself to the priest, and offer the gift that Moses commanded, for a proof to the people.”

Thank you, DePat, for rewarding our accomplishment of making it to the end of the week.

You’ve done an exceptionally great job on this post — why don’t you take a couple of days off and relax?


Yes, please, get some rest.


The tweet with Jim Caviezel is so powerful. He is obvioiusly so affected by, and passionate about, what he has seen. It’s amazing that the spotlight is finally being focused on child kidnapping, trafficking, and torture — something we have been aware of for years, in part thanks to Q.

I kept thinking I had seen parts of the movie before, so I did a quick Wiki search. It has been in production since 2018.


Principal photography began in the summer of 2018. While some of Sound of Freedom was shot in the United States (Calexico, California),[9] most of the film was shot in Cartagena, Colombia.[10]


Sound of Freedom was scheduled to be shown at the 2022 Coronado Island Film Festival, which ran from November 9-13.[11]

In March 2023 Variety reported that Angel Studios had acquired the rights to distribute the film worldwide, with a planned release during the second half of 2023.[1] Angel Studios later set a release date of July 4, 2023.[12]

Caviezel has stated that this was the second most important film he has ever done, ranking it behind his role as Jesus Christ in The Passion of the Christ.[13][7]

I expect the movie to be hard to watch while also gratifying to see the work that is being done and the dedication of those who are doing it. I believe the problem is monumental, and so must be the efforts to fight it.


The reactions to the SCOTUS ruling on affirmative action are telling. They all imply, or even state outright, that people of color need help to succeed and that they can’t compete on a level playing field. This clearly illustrates the attitude of the Left that people of color are pawns they can manipulate by “helping” them. Hey, maybe, if they need help to succeed, it’s because the Dems have kept them on the plantation for over a century.

The Obamas said something about policies that “reflect our values of equity and fairness.” What could be more fair than having everyone compete by the same rules?

Here’s a gem:

-> Obama Foundation Volunteer

-> Biden Campaign Field Organizer

-> “No Black person will be able to succeed in a merit-based system…”

Erica Marsh:

Today’s Supreme Court decision is a direct attack on Black people. No Black person will be able to succeed in a merit-based system which is exactly why affirmative-action based programs were needed. Today’s decision is a TRAVESTY!!!

And then there’s Elizabeth Warren, who thinks young people won’t have an “equal chance” now:

I loved the way Thomas spanked Jackson over the same issue.

Yeah, she’s going to tell Thomas he hadn’t earned his position and wouldn’t be there without Democrats’ patronage…..


ROTFLMAO at donkey help for Thomas.


I can just see Biden claiming he was very helpful in Thomas’ confirmation hearings.


Especially when she’s the poster child for unqualified selected by race and gender.


Justice Thomas, “schooling”, Klownji, is hilarious. Public slap down.   :wpds_lol: 


“After her rant she said “oh god, I didn’t mean that.”


Was she wearing the Klan outfit?

Democrats love the Klan outfits!


Hope folks recall, Klownji, was confirmed WITH republican votes.





But, is there a difference…Uniparty…democrat…republican?

In my jaded world, They are synonyms, for each other.


^^^ This.

Our focus as supporters and voters should be to use wisdom and discernment with candidates that rise up. Are they coming up through the ranks of party membership or are they rising up from the people they represent and just act as affiliates of a party. The former is Uniparty. The latter is usually somebody who can stand against it if supported by the people they represent.

We cannot do that without participating and securing the vote by working in the elections apparatus in the states, counties and communities where we live.


Some in the Senate think their duty to consent outweighs their duty to advise.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

That’s literally what it is.

Republicans, aware of how the system is supposed to work, still follow that gameplan. Eseentially give the POTUS what he wants unless they find a really big gaping lack of qualification or major character blot on the nominee.


Some republicans feel their duty is to consent, including unqualified, UnAmerican nominations.

Kenji SC. Judges. Briben administration…Richard and the rest.

Compounding the travesties…

Then the moronic republicans vote for, Briben Ukraine war, “green build back better’ legislation, expanding debt ceiling, deficit spending.


There are some very hard truths about the differences between races/ethnicities that are not being honestly addressed in our school systems. Until they are, we will continue to have problems.

Erica Marsh is unfortunately not incorrect. There ARE disparities in intelligence among races. But addressing this issue at the college level is simply ridiculous. That is too late.

Children should be separated into ability/aptitude groups beginning in kindergarten, and taught at the speed/level that they are individually capable of. I believe almost ALL students are able to eventually learn a baseline amount of reading, writing, and math. Some will, of course, excel beyond the level needed for the average generally successful working person to have a good life. Those should be college-bound, without regard in any way to race or ethnic background, even if the majority of them happen to be Asian or White.

Pretending, as we have for the last 40-50 years that all children should grow up to attend college and have a career in law, medicine, engineering or the like has resulted in the failing school systems we now have, and the terrifying rates of illiteracy among blacks in particular.


Children should be separated into ability/aptitude groups beginning in kindergarten, and taught at the speed/level that they are individually capable of. 

That was the practice when I was in grade school.


Me, too. With gifted classes for high levels, and special help for lower level students.

What Titan sub wreckage can tell us about the tragedy

The recovery ship Horizon Arctic has now delivered all the debris it was able to collect from the shattered remains of the Titan submersible on the Atlantic seafloor.

As shown by the amount of material that came ashore, the ship’s deep-sea robot managed to bring up significant components. These may yet help investigators get to the root cause of the Titan’s catastrophic implosion 11 days ago that killed five people.

Quayside workers in St John’s in Newfoundland attempted to cover the fragments with sheeting, but some pieces were still clearly identifiable.

One of the most obvious was the front titanium end cap from the cylinder-shaped, carbon-fibre sub.

Looking rather like a metal doughnut, the hole in its middle is where the viewport window would have been. 

The crane’s lifting sling went right through the hole. We don’t know where the acrylic window is now. Concerns had been raised about its strength, about whether it could cope with the pressure at 4km depth. But nothing can yet be read into its absence in the pictures recorded in St John’s.

Also brought ashore were what appeared to be the titanium flanges. These are the metal rings glued to either end of the Titan’s carbon fibre cylindrical hull. The flanges would then have made contact with the end caps.

The flanges and their join to the carbon fibre will be central to the investigation now under way with US and Canadian authorities.

The article continues with descriptions and photos of other parts of the sub that were recovered.


“The crane’s lifting sling went right through the hole. We don’t know where the acrylic window is now.”


I know where it is.


Here, I’ll help them figure out where the acrylic window is now.

I’ll do a multiple choice, to give them a fair chance.

See if anyone can spot the correct answer to “Where is the acrylic window now?

A) the King’s Chamber at the Great Pyramid of Giza

B) the peak of Mount Everest

C) the Moon

D) the bottom of the Atlantic ocean

(no cheating and no helping others!)

So is Catturd going to reveal his identity?

I believe that Catturd has been doxxed already a couple of years back.


Really? Do you know who he is? I’ve seen various leftists call him out on Twitter for not revealing his identity.


I have no reason to ever refer to him as other than Catturd.

I just have a vague recollection, which partially was the reason he went from Catturd to Catturd2.


If I had his name on speed-dial, I certainly wouldn’t publish it now.


Nothing good would come of it.


Yes, I would not want it to come out unless he wanted it to. He would have to reveal it.


Rolling Stone is a CIA agent/tool


Yes. And in this case, it has information that I wasn’t able to find anywhere else. That happens frequently with mainstream media outlets that have real reporters who sometimes do actual investigative reporting. Their end product will inevitably slant Left and even contain propaganda, but one can often find facts within.

I can’t rely only on conservative sites because they don’t report on everything. Increasingly, I can’t rely on conservative “influencers” because some are so wedded to their theories that they only write what will support them, even when the theories are falling apart — or when they should be falling apart, if only someone would look at them critically and with common sense.

Today, Citizen Free Press has a link to a CNN article that responds to the SCOTUS decisions. It is enlightening to read their point of view. Knowing your enemy can be very useful.


Tell it! Loudly!




Let them call out … lots of people prefer not to have a target on their back …


Catturd’s responses to them are forceful and humorous!


Lefties have no sense of humor.

Vengeance is on their mond.


He was … I won’t repeat anything about his identity …


More random excitement at Casa de Cthulhu….

I went out to drive around and get dinner, and my clutch pedal (which has been going lower and lower of late) essentially wanted to go through the floor before it let me shift gears.

It’s a hydraulic clutch, which is supposed to be self-adjusting, but I learned about that back with my first car — the ill-fated ’79 Mustang. The rear brakes were supposed to be self-adjusting drum brakes, but they didn’t. They were supposed to adjust when you went in reverse and put on the brakes. I didn’t do that enough, so they never adjusted.

So I’m a bit skeptical of this self-adjusting story, and I take a peek in to see how I’m doing on clutch fluid. From what I could see on first impression, there wasn’t any.

I checked my stock of brake fluid (clutch fluid is the same thing) and found I had plenty. Problem is, as soon as you break the seal on it, it starts absorbing moisture from the atmosphere — and you really shouldn’t use it if it’s been open for a year. My bottle ran out of time in February, 2022. So I borrowed the Fiancee’s jalopy for a trip to the auto-parts store.

It comes in little tiny bottles for $8 and humongous large bottles for $12, so I got the big one. It took about two shotglasses’ worth to top off the clutch cylinder, which explained why I had so much in the old bottle.

After I pumped the clutch a bunch of times, it seemed to shift into gear pretty well, so we’ll see how durable this fix will be.


Just for the record, I am really really really really envious of kalbo’s lift.

Last edited 5 months ago by cthulhu

I need to replace my exhaust manifold, ’cause it’s got a crack.

If I do it in California, the part will cost me $450 because it has to be Honda. Everywhere else, the part is $175 and performs better.

It has two bolts to attach to the exhaust thingie from underneath — need a lift. It has about five bolts to attach to the side of the head that I can easily get to. New high-heat gaskets top and bottom. End of story.

Probably would cost me $500 of labor to have it done. Is trivial with a lift.


Smells like an easy diversion when ya go to Palm Springs.

  • Yea, realize, Fiancé works. Ya gotta accommodate her schedule. Likely won’t fit.

Perhaps a sortie across Sierras to NV. Via Jackson, CA/NV 88 drops ya into Gardnerville/Minden area. IIRC, couple auto parts stores there.

There is always 80 or 50. Then ya get more wacko CA drivers to evade. More auto parts stores Carson and Reno.

Jack stands or a couple ramps, and you have easier access to a couple bolts.

This stuff is right up your alley.


I’ll be driving her car to Palm Springs and driving her back.

I’m not particularly petite, so I wouldn’t want to do jack stands or ramps. I could see doing it with a floor slot, but I don’t have one of those either.


Floor slot — I first saw one of these locally.

So, the garage floor has a five-foot deep and three feet wide hole down the middle, lined with concrete-filled cinderblocks, I’m sure with rebar.

This slot flares out to 3’6″ at 5-1/2″ from the floor. It is then bridged by 4×6’s. 3’6″ long.

The car is driven into the garage over the slot while all lumber is in place. Once the car is parked and brake engaged, the exposed 4×6’s are pulled out and a regular folding ladder lowered. Then all the 4×6’s under the desired work area are removed from underneath.

Cheap, safe, foolproof. 1930’s/1940’s.


A few years back, bantered a bit about one, in San Jose.

Hood I grew up in. Lived on, Hanchett Ave. Prolly 400′, left on Sequoia. Right on Shasta. Best friend lived on Shasta Ave. They had a floor slot. I / we used it to change oil, in our jalopies, as teenagers.

The drift I got back then, this was likely the house, with a slot, ya walked through. 🙂

Could be, but I gathered that they were not uncommon around the SJ area at the time.


Had no idea they were common, with 30s/40s vintage homes. Quite possibly so.

The only home I know of with a slot. incredibly useful. no particular reason I should have known of more.

Wish there was one in my garage. Hmmm. gonna noodle on that one.

My late father-in-law’s house had one, which probably contributed to my wife’s nephew’s success in automotive design and diagnostics (he works at Porsche here as a design and test engineer).

“The Pit” runs the length of their garage, with steps leading down from the front, and removable boards covering it so that no-one gets an unwelcome suprise (including the car being worked on 😆 )…

As long as you don’t drive into the pit, it’s a lot more convenient and LOT safer than jack stands or ramps…

I’m not sure if they’re a thing here, or not (have to ask him tomorrow). The house was built in the 1930s, IIRC, so that’s about the same timeframe as in the USA…

They also had a real cool (and cool) cellar, where they kept potatos, onions, liquid refreshment 🙂 , and other stuff cool. Interesting bit of history there…

Lots of houses from that era being torn down, thanks to Habeck, et. al. 🙁


Hood I grew up in, most, if not all the houses had basements.

Miss the basements.

Valerie Curren

Dad was mentioning the other day about working for his dad at his gas station when he was a young teen. Apparently Grandpa told him he/Dad should have to pay him/Grandpa for all the great experience & knowledge he was getting. 😉 One of the first things he had to do was wash the walls of the pit with kerosene–no gloves & horrible fumes! That was in the 50’s in Detroit  🤔 


Assuming, you are referring to my Ram, likely a Ram dealer within a couple miles where I figure you are.


I thought you said one time that you had a car lift. I could do so many more things more easily with my car if I weren’t kneeling on the sidewalk sticking my head under the dash.


A lift is far outside of my meager finances. Didn’t mean to imply, I have a lift. (Communication skills lacking. Most know it.) 🙂

Ramps we use for the ATV. Harbor Freight stuff.

Heck, yard sales or Estate sales ya can get jack stands, ramps floor jack, something to lift your Honda. You already have a jack. Put blocks of some sort under and you are good to go.

Another reply slightly down…


No worries. I just thought it was plenty cool that you’d managed to get one. So much maintenance is so much easier if you don’t have to be a midget contortionist.

I once ran into someone who had bought a secondhand garage lift for $3000 for their personal garage. I need to do this.

Last edited 5 months ago by cthulhu

They had gotten something like one of these —

— but they had to remove it from the garage where it was located.


Sure would be nice to have one.


Boy, I’ll say. I thought you did for some reason…..


Because the master cylinder is higher than the slave cylinder, and there are no loops in the hydraulic line, it should bleed itself if you let it sit for a few days.

Since it works now, it is doubtful there is any air in the system. And you’re supposed to check your fluid levels more than once a decade.


Pretty much my thoughts — if I’d run the master cylinder so low that it was suckin’ air, there might be air in the line. If I topped off the cylinder now, that air would probably bubble out with use. I should check levels in a few days. In the meantime, it’s now more usable than it was.

And I profoundly resent your implication that I don’t check my clutch fluid level more often than every ten years. By the expiration of my old bottle, I know that I last topped-it in February 2021 — a mere 2.5 years ago.


And, BTW, a PSA —

If you’re old enough to remember when gas stations checked your fluids while they filled your tank, they probably checked your brake fluid and clutch fluid…..

…..but if you thought that whole thing was moved over to Jiffy Lube when they took over oil changes, you would be WRONG. Jiffy Lube checks your oil and windshield-washing fluid. Coolant (radiator), brakes, clutch, ABS, transmission, power steering, and battery fluids are YOUR problem.

Just be thankful you don’t have to live with the Model A maintenance schedule, where you were expected to lube the chassis every 500 miles.

Might be worth mentioning this “country of the blind” stuff stems back from ancient and medieval history where in putting peoples eyes out was more common. Sometimes it would be happening to one, ten, one hundred, a thousand and even tens of thousand after defeat in war, rebellion and such.

I see Russia is not signed up for the Convention on Cluster Munitions so they’ll only get back what they give.

Probably the news of this strike is quite true and the above is their only answer…
“Ukrainian generals killed in Russian strike – MOD”” Two Ukrainian generals were killed in a Russian high-precision strike on the Donbass city of Kramatorsk on Tuesday, the Defense Ministry in Moscow said on Thursday, citing “updated data.””
“The attack resulted in the deaths of “two generals, up to 50 officers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, as well as up to 20 foreign mercenaries and military advisers,” according to the Russian Defense Ministry’s daily briefing.”

some “news sites” like citizen free press who routinely post tweets instead of articles are going to find themselves with a lot less traffic

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.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

It looks like a movie clip, with the ShowTime logo.


Andrei has a few words on Larry’s most recent:


Larry Gives An Excellent Account…

 … of Prigozhin’s spiteful mind and where his hatred for Shoigu and Gerasimov originated from. 

Prigozhin is the business CEO of Wagner. He has zero military experience but is an established contractor, just like Raytheon or General Dynamics in the United States. He handled (or mishandled) the money flowing to Wagner and probably spread the wealth among some commanders. The cash flow from Wagner added to Prigozhin’s wealth. It also fed his ego and provided him the illusion of being viewed in Russia an important military figure. Fourth, Prigozhin reportedly cut a deal in 2018 with a Syrian war lord to capture a Conoco oil field in a portion of Kurd controlled territory, which was defended by a small group of U.S. Special Operations Forces. This was the Battle of Khashsam aka the Battle of Conoco:

In the end, those killed by USAF died for Prigozhin ambition and greed. Likely not only his alone. Rumor has it that it was either Shoigu or Gerasimov who after the event conveyed the message to Prigozhin to the effect that he should abandon stupid efforts to become Napoleon (or similar in scale leader) and that people died because of his ego and greed. Read the whole thing at Larry’s blog. In other words, in case of Prigozhin you can take a man out of prison, you can not take the prison out of man.


Highly recommend today’s offerings from Mole at Substack (it’s a day early since Mole is taking a couple of days off) —

One of the links on the offerings:
Yours Truly: This series of articles, IMO, pretty much lays out the case for the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the COVID-19 virus) as being a lab-created “offshoot” of the MERS-CoV virus. AND that the U.S. government, via the NIH (Anthony Fauci / Francis Collins) was funding this research with RALPH BARIC at UNC; and with ZHENG-LI SHI, SHIBO JIANG, DU YANGLING (as Yangling, Du), FENG LI, and YUSEN ZHOU, either at UNC or at the WUHAN INSTITUTE OF VIROLOGY.

Here are two examples of papers, the research for which were funded by the NIH:
And found here:
“A recombinant receptor-binding domain of MERS-CoV in trimeric form protects human dipeptidyl peptidase4 (hDPP4) transgenic mice from MERS-CoV infection”
Shibo Jiang, Yusen Zhou, Du Yangling (as Yangling, Du), et al.
published online October 15, 2016
Yours Truly: If one is reading this paper correctly, the object of the research for this paper was to identify the RBD (receptor-binding domain) of MERS-CoV (the Middle Eastern respiratory coronavirus) — so that RBD could potentially be “worked around.”
*** The NIH funded this research with the following grants to Shibo Jiang and to Du Yangling (as Yangling, Du):
Other funding was provided by the CCP.

“Two Mutations Were Critical for Bat-to-Human Transmission of Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus”
Du Yangling (as Yangling, Du), Shibo Jiang, Zhengli Shi, Ralph S. Baric, Feng Li
published online June 6, 2015
Yours Truly: If one is reading this paper correctly, it appears that the goal of the research was to uncover the TWO spike proteins that could be identified in the MERS-CoV genome. The two spike proteins were named S1 and S2. (Do S1 and S2 sound familiar? — they’re in the SARS-CoV-2 [COVID-19] virus.)
*** The NIH funded this research with the following grants to RALPH BARIC and to FENG LI:

Thank you for this. Your Truly can’t find the exact information on the NIH grant, R03AI060946, used to fund the research for the cited paper. One did find an NIH grant to Gary Whittaker (one of the authors of the cited paper) in 2009, the application for which describes exactly what the paper discusses. That NIH grant was 1R21AI076958-01A2 (FOA = PA-06-181.)
So it appears that Cornell University was fooling around with the S1 and S2 spike proteins of SARS-CoV-2 also, back in 2009. Funded by the NIH.

Barnes nail Pence over support for Zelenskyyyy.


Z banned elections during war . I think that was in the news the other day.


Sounds dictatorial to me.


Pence was ‘nailed’ … loonnnggg ago …

Pence is right about one thing though, the portion of his statement

“… there’s no room in our party for apologists for Putin. There is only ., the Russian ..”

‘our party’ being the Uniparty … a war party…

I see the day the USG will begin arresting those who do not support Ukraine or who cheer Russia on … in my view the Russian Federation is the only entity standing between humanity and the evil Cabal, and has been since the beginning of the SMO.


You got it, with your closing sentence.

The propagandists can say what they want about Vlad but he stands head and shoulders above the West in his mastery of strategy and tactics.

He’s doing an SMO that is costing Russian lives, yet he still has the support of most Russian citizens.

It’s like he co-wrote The Art of War.

Iran’s admission to SCO planned on July 4 — Lavrov

“At the upcoming July 4 meeting of the Council of Heads of State [of the organization], Iran’s full membership will be formalized, and a memorandum of commitment by Belarus will be signed, which will also launch the procedure for its full accession to the Shanghai [cooperation] organization,” he said.

Furthermore, Lavrov stated that the group also welcomes new dialogue partners. “From now on, the SCO space, taking into account both new members and dialogue partner states, stretches from Europe and the Middle East to South and Southeast Asia,” he added.

The declaration establishing the SCO was signed in Shanghai in June 2001 by six states: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, China, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. The organization currently also includes India and Pakistan.

This year, New Delhi presides over the SCO. The summit of the organization is set for July 4. The meeting of the SCO leaders would take place in an online format, as previously stated by the Indian Foreign Ministry.”



We are watching the building of a new Great Pyramid.

Main characteristic – the blocks fit together perfectly.


Discussion from Andrei’s blog, comment section:

“Larch, what are your thoughts on the recent announcements by NATO that in Vilnius they’ll decide to freeze the conflict and send a peacekeeping mission to western Ukraine. To me both of these ideas seem to be non-starters – freezing of the conflict would require Russia’s consent (it would have to be a bilateral decision, not a unilateral one), and NATO inserting a “peacekeeping” force into western Ukraine sounds like something that they won’t have the guts to do out of fear that this force would get crushed by the Russian forces stationed in Belarus.”



“It signals the realization among the military and Intel of the West that the Ukies cannot gain back anything from the Russians. So, to preserve what is left of Ukraine as a state and as a military that can become a very dangerous-to-Russia terror state and a very severe insurgency within the new Russia territories, they need a freeze.

A NATO force of any kind would be destroyed like the destruction of the Ukie group that squatted under the Antonovsky Bridge and was destroyed by Iskanders today. So, it ain’t going to happen. This is bloviation from Brussels types and Russophobic Euros who talk big but sleep in bunkers hoping Putin won’t target them.

Russia needs 500 km of a security zone. That finishes Kiev. It puts Russia’s de facto border up to the Carpathian zone. So a deal will be arranged with Ukie neighbors and the rest of Ukraine will be parceled out as soon as the neighbors accept Russia’s rules. Is NATO ready for this? Not politically. It will take a few more years to get to that spot.
Russia is enjoying the benefits of destroying the West’s weapons. The rest of the world will be ordering Russian military weapons systems.

NATO understands that their military will look like Ukraines and their cities will look like Bakhmut if they go to war with Russia. And it will not take months. It will be in hours in some cases and a few days in the others.

Don’t forget, the US needs to preserve its buffer, NATO, for its own security and for supposed use against China. It cannot risk losing that, which it will, swiftly and forever.
The West has just realized that Gerasimov suckered them into this static war along a 1000 km front. Doing it without a NoFly Zone. One of the most effective defensive machines capable of grinding full armies of men and machines day after day. So far, three armies have been ground to meat and burnt metal armor.

The West also sees that Putin has an economy that even under draconian sanctions is growing and has low inflation. It is on a war footing, but not anywhere near full wartime stress. Yet, it is outproducing the entire West for a wider range of weapons and ammunition. And it still has the capacity to mobilize another 2 million men if needed with a society that backs the President by 90%.

And always keep this in mind. China, Iran and North Korea are available for industry, parts, logistical (transport) and volunteer manpower if ever needed.

I would add this: if Kadyrov whistled to his fellow muslims around the world, half a million would be in Grozny in a few days. Hardened muslim fighters happy to help defeat the Hegemon’s proxies.

Always look at the Order of Battle and the potential in the rear.

The West is being drained of its weapons and finances. Every day the West is weaker.
Russia grows stronger each day.

It’s all open source Intel because it cannot be hidden. Facts are facts. (Paris is burning is symbolic of the West ‘on fire’. Just look at any West nation. Compare with Russia.)
My take for what it is worth. That is why they want a freeze. They are dying.”


returns from shopping and finds this. “destruction of the Ukie group that squatted under the Antonovsky Bridge and was destroyed by Iskanders today”.

Nice to learn they got rid of that nasty infestation.


^^^ Must read. Sobering reality.



  • Seems this is the stuff the US condemned Iran and Iraq of, hiding military targets, within the civilian population.
  • We KNOW, Ukraine hides military targets, within the civilian population.

Seems the “West” does the same thing. Likely to avoid “Western” casualties.

From the article, linked in PR’s post above

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has accused Ukraine of allowing foreign mercenaries and Western generals to use civilian infrastructure to fight against Russia, and has vowed to destroy these groups.

Speaking at an online briefing on Friday, Lavrov said that Russia has “not seen confirmation of a single fact of deliberate shelling of civilian targets by the Russian army.” He claimed, however, that the Ukrainian side has been “violating international humanitarian law and committing a war crime by allowing mercenaries, Western generals and instructors to use civilian objects to hold all sorts of meetings.”

“If we discover such gatherings, for example, as in Kramatorsk, we will destroy them, because these are people who have declared war on us,” Lavrov said, referring to Russia’s recent high-precision strike on a temporary brigade base in the Donbass city of Kramatorsk on Tuesday. 

The Russian Defense Ministry had claimed that the base was hosting a staff meeting involving dozens of Ukrainian officers and foreign advisers, and reported that the attack resulted in the deaths of “two generals, up to 50 officers of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, as well as up to 20 foreign mercenaries and military advisers.”

The West interference in Ukraine has largely gone without response from Russia. My guess is, that is about to change.

When Russia gets serious about pushing the lines towards Odessa and other strategic points, I won’t be surprised if Russia takes out numerous Ukraine staff HQs and gathering points for Western advisors / mercenaries. <<< Borders on common sense.

At some point, US casualties won’t be able to be hidden, from reporting, common knowledge.

^^^ The day can’t come too soon.

Last edited 5 months ago by barkerjim

The main points from the statements of Sergey Lavrov at the briefing:

◾️ The Russian Federation knows many examples of violation of the requirement for the UN secretariat not to receive instructions from any governments;
◾️ Russia will strive for the earliest expansion of the UN Security Council at the expense of the countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America;
◾️ The West cannot substantiate its accusations of war crimes and violations of humanitarian law by Russia in Ukraine;
◾️ The Russian Federation has serious doubts about the adequacy of many Western leaders;
◾️ If anyone in the West has doubts about stability in Russia, it is “their problem”;
◾️ The West should not worry about the national interests of Russia, it came out stronger from all the troubles;
◾️ The export of Russian fertilizers and foodstuffs continues, despite all the obstacles from the West;
◾️ Russia, in the event of termination of the grain deal, will provide supplies to the poorest countries at its own expense in the required volume;
◾️ Russia sees no reason to extend the grain deal;
◾️ Moscow does not hide the names of children taken to Russia from the war zone, dozens of children have already been taken by their relatives;
◾️ The Russian Federation will seek the truth about the situation of children’s rights in Ukraine on the basis of its investigation;
◾️ The topic of the work of US laboratories in Ukraine is not closed, Russia continues to provide data on the development of biological weapons in them;
◾️ If Finland decides that it is necessary to return to normal relations with the Russian Federation, Moscow will consider the proposals, taking into account the entry of Helsinki into NATO;
◾️ Lavrov called strange Blinken’s statement about the end of the conflict in Ukraine “by diplomatic means, through negotiations”, recalling that the West constantly talks about the need to first defeat Russia;
◾️ The West is trying to temporarily freeze the conflict in Ukraine and buy time to pump up Kyiv militarily;
◾️ The Russian Federation does not see the need for the previous volumes of diplomatic contacts with the West, as before the start of the Ukrainian events;
◾️ The Patriarch of Constantinople did not send appeals and proposals regarding the fate of the Orthodox in Ukraine;
◾️ The Patriarch of Constantinople, under the leadership of the United States, is doing everything to destroy Orthodoxy;
◾️ RF does not see unfriendly nations, but sees unfriendly governments;
◾️ The Russian Federation and Serbia are coordinating the arrival of the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of this country in Russia after the disruption of the visit of the Russian delegation to Belgrade;
◾️ The Russian Federation is grateful to the government and President of Serbia Vučić for being open to contacts with the Russian side;
◾️ The Dnieper has entered its usual course, the damage after the breakthrough of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station is being eliminated quite quickly;
◾️ The Russian Federation is in solidarity with the Serbian people on the UN resolutions on Kosovo;
◾️ The issue of the presence of PMC “Wagner” in Africa is regulated directly by the contracts of African countries with this company;
◾️ The fate of the agreements between the countries of Africa and PMC “Wagner” depends on these states themselves;
◾️ There is no certainty that the West is investigating Bucha, no data has been provided;
◾️ Lavrov said he regularly reminds Guterres of the need to clarify the situation with the dead in Bucha, “but so far nothing is happening”;
◾️ The Russian Federation asks the IAEA experts to indicate in their reports at least the direction from which the shelling of the ZNPP comes from;
◾️ One of the goals of the special operation in the Russian Federation is to solve humanitarian problems in Ukraine;
◾️ To achieve justice in the framework of the investigation of crimes in the House of Trade Unions in Odessa and on the “Maidan” will not work;
◾️ The Russia-Africa summit will present the prospect of cooperation for several years;
◾️ The West should treat African countries “as adults.”


“The Patriarch of Constantinople, under the leadership of the United States, is doing everything to destroy Orthodoxy;”
I wonder if that is the real issues?
We also have seen the attack on Christianity here over the years.
The crackdown in Ukraine on Christians.
Here the crackdown on families and our way of life. The perversion that is being forced on us is trying to destroy all we believe in.
Christianity in Europe is fading and leadership in the larger church is caving to the forces of evil.

“Just In: Dirty Jack Smith and Biden’s DOJ Is Set to Indict Rudy Giuliani and Fellow Trump Attorneys for Questioning Stolen 2020 Election”


You can’t prosecute someone for exercising their First Amendment rights, but in the attempt, they will put them through h3ll and cost them boatloads of money. There will be more attacks on Trump and his associates leading up to the election. I imagine they are preparing in every way they can. This is a war for all the marbles.


In 24 PDJT should make an order that any person found to have been maliciously persecuted for political reasons, should have all their legal and other out of pocket expenses, plus 10% for inflation, paid to them by deducting it from the budgets of the dept’s concerned in the persecution. Even if it means letting staff go to pay for it.


And each prosecuting lawyer subject to individual penalties as well!


RICO for Jack and his ilk. Expect to see Rudy file such a suit if they are stupid enough to indict him.


IIRC, there is already such a law — something like “deprival of rights under color of authority”. It’s just more words on paper, however, being that the DoJ never prosecutes it.


Then Trump, his family, staff, friends have a great case(s) against the Feds.


via beautiful Maria …

“According to French President Emmanuel Macron, “the rebellion in Russia” (which lasted about a day) “shows the divisions that exist within the country, the fragility of its army and auxiliary forces.” At the same time, I read news reports from France itself, where Macron is still President:

– “Macron will hold a meeting of the crisis headquarters on Friday in connection with the riots”;
– “In a number of centers of the French rebellion, a loss of control over the situation on the part of the authorities is recorded, general robbery of shops and markets has begun”;
– “Gerald Darmanin announced tonight the mobilization of 40,000 police officers who failed to prevent numerous scenes of looting and clashes that night”;
– “The police made at least 667 arrests throughout the country, which is significantly more than the previous evening”;
– Third Night of Violence in France.

Only here it is not at all the third night or the second day. The Fifth Republic under Macron has been in a fever for many years – with periodic short remissions.
The Yellow Vests alone caused millions of euros in damage to French cities. In Paris – by 1.4 million euros, in Toulouse – by 1.2 million euros and hundreds of thousands more in other cities.

This year alone, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets to protest against pension reform in France: in Paris, Marseille and across the country. Demonstrating thereby the disunity of power and society.

Macron regularly addresses the nation, but his ratings are steadily falling. Sociologists note a record low level of support for the President of the Fifth Republic among the population.

Dear French Foreign Ministry, in a couple of weeks another NATO summit is due to take place in Vilnius, where, it seems, your patron was going to, promising to support Zelensky. I also heard that there will be talk about the situation in Russia. If so, I recommend that you make the topic of the upcoming summit, in the words of Macron, disagreements in France, the weakness of the French army and auxiliary bodies. Maybe partners and allies will help: they will supply France with weapons with depleted uranium to protect the police from the people or the people from the police – that’s up to you.

By the way, we are fighting the enemy, and you in France are fighting each other.

So before you try to heal us, heal yourself.

Cuppa Covfefe

There were many, MANY supposed Yellow Vests who were, in fact, ANTIFA… who infiltrated them very early on, basically turning peaceful resistance and protest into a flaming domestic war…


Looks like they’re targeting Farrage, possibly due to something said about him under the protection of parliamentary privilege, Farrage denies the truth of the accusations.
P.S. am sure PDJT would welcome him over there.

Good point, if the globo’s can’t have it like it was before musk took over they may prefer it wrecked.


Someone made a decision. Going to ruin business.


Here’s an article: Twitter has started blocking unregistered users

If you currently try to access Twitter without logging in to your user account, you may find you’re unable to see any of the content that was previously available to the wider public. Instead, you’ll likely be met with the Twitter window that asks you to either sign in to the platform or create a new account, effectively blocking you from viewing tweets and user profiles or browsing through threads unless you’re a registered Twitter user.

Several members of The Verge team have been able to replicate the issue, and it appears to be affecting web access on both desktop and mobile devices. Prior to this change, Twitter allowed people limited access to the platform without an account — you could view public tweets and user profiles, for example, but couldn’t like or leave comments. A window that prevented readers from viewing additional posts until they signed in also previously appeared after the viewer had scrolled past an undisclosed number of tweets, though that at least allowed some access to the platform. 

Twitter has yet to address if the update was intentional.

Now, regardless of how you try to access the website — be that the homepage or a direct link to a tweet or profile — you’re immediately met with a sign-in prompt that completely obscures your view. It doesn’t even tease the content with a swift redirect. You simply can’t see anything.

Twitter has yet to make a public announcement, so it’s currently unclear if this is an intentional update or another technical mishap. If Twitter stands by the changes, however, they both contradict and support other actions that owner Elon Musk has taken in the past year. In 2022, Musk hired noted iPhone hacker George Hotz to fix its search feature and get rid of the login prompt that prevents unregistered users from browsing the website. Hotz resigned less than halfway through his 12-week internship with the company, claiming he “didn’t think there was any real impact I could make there.” In April this year, Twitter then eliminated the platform’s search feature for unregistered users entirely.

If intentional, this means Twitter is nudging visitors harder to become official users — and, by extension, potential Twitter Blue subscribers. Free Twitter account holders can still access publicly posted tweets and other information, though many of the features that enhance user experiences (such as editing tweets and user verification) are locked behind a Twitter Blue subscription, and more of the platform’s core features could soon follow. The company could probably use the cash injection from users paying for premium features — Twitter’s US advertising revenue between April and May this year plummeted by 59 percent compared to the previous year.


why would anyone pay for extras if the viewer clicks are severely impacted? Makes no sense to me


Ty. 5hats what i ended up finding. But everyone needs to know.


YW. I hope it changes. This does not bode well for Twitter good will.
