2023·07·08 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

A Caution

Just remember…we might replace the RINO candidates. (Or we might not. The record is mixed even though there is more MAGA than there used to be.) But that will make no difference in the long run if the party officials, basically the Rhonna McDaniels (or however that’s spelled–I suspect it’s RINO), don’t get replaced.

State party chairs, vice chairs, secretaries and so on, and the same at county levels, have huge influence on who ultimately gets nominated, and if these party wheelhorses are RINOs, they will work tirelessly to put their own pukey people on the ballot. In fact I’d not be surprised if some of our “MAGA” candidates are in fact, RINO plants, encouraged to run by the RINO party leadership when they realized that Lyn Cheney (and her ilk) were hopelessly compromised as effective candidates. The best way for them to deal with the opposition, of course, is to run it themselves.

Running good candidates is only HALF of the battle!

SPECIAL SECTION: Message For Our “Friends” In The Middle Kingdom

I normally save this for near the end, but…basically…up your shit-kicking barbarian asses. Yes, barbarian! It took a bunch of sailors in Western Asia to invent a real alphabet instead of badly drawn cartoons to write with. So much for your “civilization.”

Yeah, the WORLD noticed you had to borrow the Latin alphabet to make Pinyin. Like with every other idea you had to steal from us “Foreign Devils” since you rammed your heads up your asses five centuries ago, you sure managed to bastardize it badly in the process.

Have you stopped eating bats yet? Are you shit-kickers still sleeping with farm animals?

Or maybe even just had the slightest inkling of treating lives as something you don’t just casually dispose of?

中国是个混蛋 !!!
Zhōngguò shì gè hùndàn !!!
China is asshoe !!!

And here’s my response to barbarian “asshoes” like you:

OK, with that rant out of my system…

Biden Gives Us Too Much Credit

…we can move on to the next one.

Apparently Biden (or his puppeteer) has decided we’re to blame for all of the fail in the United States today.

Sorry to disappoint you Joe (or whoever), but you managed to do that all on your own; not only that, you wouldn’t let us NOT give you the chance because you insisted on cheating your way into power.

Yep, you-all are incompetent, and so proud of it you expect our applause for your sincerity. Fuck that!!

It wouldn’t be so bad, but you insist that everyone else have to share in your misery. Nope, can’t have anyone get out from under it. Somehow your grand vision only works if every single other person on earth is forced to go along. So much as ONE PERSON not going along is enough to make it all fail, apparently.

In engineering school we’re taught that a design that has seven to eight billion single points of failure…sucks.

Actually, we weren’t taught that. Because it would never have occurred to the professors to use such a ridiculous example.

Justice Must Be Done.

The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system.

Nothing else matters at this point. Talking about trying again in 2022 or 2024 is hopeless otherwise. Which is not to say one must never talk about this, but rather that one must account for this in ones planning; if fixing the fraud is not part of the plan, you have no plan.

Kamala Harris has a new nickname since she finally went west from DC to El Paso Texas: Westward Hoe.

OK now for the fine print.

This is the WQTH Daily Thread. You know the drill. There’s no Poltical correctness, but civility is a requirement. There are Important Guidelines,  here, with an addendum on 20191110.

We have a new board – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.

And remember Wheatie’s Rules:

1. No food fights
2. No running with scissors.
3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
4. Zeroth rule of gun safety: Don’t let the government get your guns.
5. Rule one of gun safety: The gun is always loaded.
5a. If you actually want the gun to be loaded, like because you’re checking out a bump in the night, then it’s empty.
6. Rule two of gun safety: Never point the gun at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
7. Rule three: Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
8. Rule the fourth: Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

(Hmm a few extras seem to have crept in.)

A Side Rant (not my main science post)

I’ve seen multiple articles now (including one on Friday) that played fast-and-loose with the terms “rare earth element” and “rare earth metal” that I am going to just try (futilely) to set the record straight.

The two articles, one an old one that keeps regurgitating itself on the internet that called lithium a rare earth, and one recently that implied gallium was a rare earth, are the sort of thing that try to sound educated, but the analyst gets some basic facts right. Which is a shame because in both cases the basic conclusion is right. Whether certain metals are rare earth metals or not, it’s nevertheless a really bad idea to rely on China to supply them.

Unfortunately if these guys get this basic fact wrong, many of the other facts they bring to their argument are also suspect, and I’d hesitate to use them in an argument. Which means I can’t use their articles as sources to try to convince someone else that we shouldn’t trust China (because…I seem to recall someone saying China is Asshole).

OK, exhibit One: the periodic table:

Note the coloration, representing different groupings of elements. Red and Orange are the Alkali Metals and Alkaline Earths, respectively. Combined, they are called the “s-block” for reasons I’m not going to go into now. Helium, on the upper right, is also really in the s-block. Note the s-block is 2 columns wide. Over on the right you see another tall area with purple, blue and a green triangle stairstepping downwards. This (minus helium) is the p-block. It’s six columns wide. In the middle you have a great swath of yellow, ten columns wide, it’s the d-block.

That just leaves the bunch at the bottom, which is fifteen blocks wide and called the f block.

In fact, the F block should be wedged in between the s and d blocks, but then you’d have a very wide table and the way it’s done here it fits on an 8½ x 11 sheet of paper or in a book. But I won’t let that stop me, here’s an example.

In this case the S block (other than helium, top right) is blue, the p block is orange (and so is helium), the d block, red, and the f block, green. Note that in the first table, Lu and Lr are in the footnote; but in this diagram, they are directly under Sc and Y in the red block.

Another way to wedge the f block in is shown here:

This is a lower-res image, and color coded quite differently, but you can see they put La and Ac under Sc and Y in the third column. So, basically, the two blank boxes in the first diagram either get replaced by the last column of the footnote, or the first, respectively; and the rest of the columns are dropped in to the left or right of this, as appropriate. If you go with the last diagram, the d block gets split up.

Either way, when you do wedge the f-block in, one of the columns in the f block would fit right under Sc (scandium) and Y (yttrium) at the left and side of the d block, so the f block ends up being fourteen columns wide, not 15. One of the fifteen columns is really in the d block.

Note there’s a sequence: s, two columns wide, p, six columns wide, d, ten columns wide, and f, fourteen columns wide. Each is four more than the one before it. It’s likely the next (undiscovered) row of the table will include a g block with eighteen columns in it (and it will probably fit between the s and f blocks).

OK with that backdrop, let’s talk about the rare earth elements.

The rare earth elements are basically: the top row of the f block, plus the the column with Y, Sc, and either La or Lu in it.

[Scientists until recently argued over which elements belong under yttrium. It was one of those “is Pluto a planet” type debates, and they settled on Lu and Lr being under Sc and Y…in other words like the first, rather garishly colored long table I showed.]

The rare earth elements are sort of like the Holy Roman Empire. The holy Roman Empire was neither holy, nor Roman, nor an empire. And the rare earths aren’t particularly rare in the larger picture, nor are they especially earthy compared to the other elements. (What does that even mean, anyway?)

If you were to grab a notional “average” pile of dirt–average in composition for the entire crust of Earth, that is–and sort it, atom by atom, after you were done, you’d have more of some of the “rare” earths than copper (by weight, not necessarily the number of atoms). Some of the other “rare earths” are quite a bit more scarce but with one special exception that’s due to other factors, all of them would show up far more often than gold or platinum, in fact even silver would be rarer than any of them (see chart below). The rarest “rare earth” (thulium) would be 0.52 parts per million, while the commonest, (cerium) would be 66.5 parts per million. This is not rare when you consider gold, platinum and the like are down in the single-digit or even fractional parts per billion.

In fact chemists sometimes try to school themselves not to use the name “rare earth” at all, since it combines one column of the d block, with one row of the f block.

OK, so where did this name come from? Let’s start with “earth.” These metals began to be discovered in 1787 and originally they showed up as oxides because that was the mineral form, and the chemists of the time couldn’t break those molecules apart. This was before Lavoisier brought order to the naming of compounds, too, and the term for what we now call a metal oxide, was “earth.”

OK, so why “rare” then? Well they did seem “rare” at the time, for reasons I’ll get to. And they’re also oddballs. Some history:

In 1787 a new mineral was discovered in Ytterby, Sweden, and named ytterbite after the town. A sample was sent to chemists at the Royal Academy of Turku, and there was a new “earth” in it; implying there was a new metal in it. The earth was named yttria, and the metal, yttrium (symbol Y). But then things started to get weird.

The more chemists played with this and a few other discoveries of similar minerals around the world, the more elements they kept finding. They were very chemically similar so hard to separate out, and it seemed like each time someone thought they had a pure earth, some wiseguy would come along and prove it was two or even three of them.

Eventually there were 16 of them…and in the early 1900s thanks to Mosely, we realized that there was still one remaining hole, a radioactive element almost totally absent from the earth’s crust (it’s the one exception I mentioned above). It probably wouldn’t be terribly rare, either…if only it would quit vanishing almost as soon as it were formed.

When Mendeleev was first trying to lay out the periodic table as rows of eight or ten elements, the rare earths broke him. Yttrium seemed to fit tidily in the third column of one row, but all the others wanted to wedge into the third column two rows down, breaking the regular sequence of rows of eight or ten. (He laid his table out differently from modern tables, and I wonder whether he’d scream out “of course! Why didn’t I think of that” if he could see today’s table.)

These elements are now the f block row starting with lanthanum, plus scandium (not known in Mendeleev’s day) and yttrium.

Chemists will more commonly call the first row of the f block the lanthanides, since that row starts with lanthanum, but even this is a bit of a misnomer since one of the 15 is really in the d block and shouldn’t be considered a lanthanide. (This would be particularly ironic if it’s actually lanthanum that’s in the d block! You’d be naming a group of elements after an element that isn’t even in the group!) [In case you were wondering, the second row starting with actinium is called the actinides, by analogy.]

As I mentioned before, these elements are very similar to each other chemically, and thus they not only tend to appear in the same ores, but are hard to separate out from each other. It wasn’t until the 1950s or 60s that we finally could get pure samples of them in meaningful quantities.

Before that, they were expensive because what we could do, was laboratory-level-labor intensive. And another factor is, they don’t tend to concentrate locally in ores as much as many better-known elements…so it’s hard to find a good source. Crustally common they may be, but that does no good if you can’t find an economically viable source of ore.

We’re helped somewhat by the fact that there is a gradation through the f-block. Elements on the left end of the lanthanides…the “light rare earth elements” tend to rust and crumble even in dry air; the elements from gadolinium (Gd) rightward can actually form stable pieces of metal that will tarnish, but at least not turn back into earths. These are the heavy lanthanides. Some ores contain mostly “light” rare earths and others will be more “heavy” rare earths. Yttrium and scandium tend to appear in the heavy rare earth ores, which argues for them being above lutetium in the long table.

So these are the “rare earth elements” by present definition, the lanthanides plus scandium, yttrium, and lutetium.

If these elements are so chemically similar, why do they matter so much? It turns out that many of them have unusual magnetic properties, and many have emission lines in places in the spectrum that no other element has, so they’re useful for lighting when you want a balanced spectrum (great for photography). These are differences that aren’t relevant when considering chemical reactions and compounds.

You’ve probably heard of neodymium (Nd) magnets. And if you ever had an MRI done you may have had a gadolinium (Gd) compound injected into you; its magnetic properties make it stand out in the imaging. More mundanely, the red phosphor in color TVs relies on a rare earth, europium (which is the one that rusts and crumbles the fastest, by the way). And there is wiring in front of the light emitting elements of your monitor that is transparent, made partially from lanthanides.

But, to finally get to the point of my rant,

Lithium is not a rare earth. Neither is gallium. Lithium is in the first column, right below hydrogen…no where near the f block. Gallium is tucked in under aluminum, where the d and p blocks meet, even farther from the f block.

Maybe you want to just sweep that aside, and claim that a rare earth is anything that is rare, and then go on to point out that the “real” rare earths aren’t. Aren’t rare, that is.

Well, guess what?

It turns out that gallium (Ga) and lithium (Li) are both more common than the most common rare earth element. [OK, gallium is about tied with cerium, the most common rare earth.]

So if there’s no justification for calling the rare earth elements rare earth elements, there certainly isn’t for misapplying the label to gallium and lithium!

It’s basically an excuse justifying the ignorance of the people writing the articles that others want to post. And a poor one.

The fact that the name “rare earth element” is historically used by the people who know about those elements the most, is ample reason to use it and insist that it be used correctly.

Having said that, however, it’s obvious that the sloppy people are misusing the term in a very specific wa. They definition they are thinking of is something like: “obscure metals Americans are utterly reliant on, but have to buy overseas from shithole tyrannies who would love to put us over a barrel during a conflict by cutting off our supply.”

That’s a valid concept…it needs a label. But it needs and deserves its own label; it shouldn’t hijack an existing one. Now, I’ve seen one that comes close to meaning that already, and that’s “strategic metal.” Strategic metals, however, don’t necessarily come from hostile countries (though Brandon is trying to make that true by making every country hostile). So it’s not quite right, but until we think of something better, it will work…a lot better than the ignorantly-applied “rare earth metal” which means something very different.

Going Polar

Last week we left off with the notion that a complex number…the general case of any number that contains both a real and imaginary part…can be represented on a plane instead of the number line.

Of course, that’s exactly the same thing as we do with ordered pairs…x and y. In other words, all that time you spent in algebra with graph paper is basically what’s going on here.

The similarity isn’t just superficial.

If you add two ordered pairs together, you get a certain answer. For example (3,4) + (5,-2) = (8, 2). If you write the corresponding complex numbers, 3+4i and 5-2i and add them together you get…wait for it…8+2i. There’s a perfect analogy here.

Those ordered pairs resemble vectors, but they’re not, quite; if you do think of them as vectors, you have to think of them as vectors that must start at 0,0…which isn’t normally a restriction. (Any two vectors of the same length and orientation, regardless of where they are, are considered the same vector. But here the not-quite-a-vector must start at 0,0.)

But…you can multiply complex numbers together, but there’s no really obvious way to multiply the ordered pairs. (There are two distinct ways of multiplying vectors together, but neither of them quite matches, either.)

Well, maybe there is a way. Time to take a cross country digression, that really isn’t.

Polar Coordinates

There is actually another way to represent ordered pairs…and complex numbers.

Instead of putting the number(s) on a square grid, called the Cartesian coordinate system, put them on a radial or circular grid like this:

[Which…alas, should not be in degrees, it should be in radians, with 30° instead being π/6, 60° being π/3, etc., etc. (And 180° is π radians.) But this is what wikipoo dished up for me today so degrees it shall be.]

The red circles represent simple tape-measure distance from the center, denoted r. The blue (and black) lines, indicate the direction from the center, measured as an angle, this is denoted θ, (Greek letter theta, usually mangled by English speakers as “thay-tah” where the first syllable is like “say” with a lithp, not like “they”). This is in contrast to the Cartesian coordinates, where the vertical lines represent the distance to the right of the center vertical axis (without regard to how far up or down), and the horizontal lines represent the distance above the center horizontal axis (without regard to how far left or right).

So we have r, θ, instead of x, y. And this new system is called polar coordinates, likely because of the resemblance to what the latitude/longitude lines look like on a map of the north or south pole.

The same point on the plane can thus be denoted two different ways; they are absolutely equivalent. However, it’s often the case that one of the two is very convenient for what you want to do right now…and the other is profoundly inconvenient. Pick the one you want.

But that implies being able to convert between the two. Put some point “out there” somewhere, if you know its Cartesian coordinates, can you figure out the polar coordinates? Or vice versa?

The answer is yes.

Let’s look at a few obvious examples first.

If the innermost red circle has radius 1, then (1,0) in Cartesian coordinates, is 1, 0° in this diagram, meaning a distance of 1 from the center, at an angle of 0°. Similarly (0, 1) ends up being at 1, 90°.

But what if you want (1,1) translated into polar coordinates?

The answer is not, repeat not, 1, 45°.

You see, the point (1,1) is directly, plumb-line above (1,0) which is also 1, 0°.

And it is directly, spirit level, to the left of (0,1) or 1, 90°. That puts it outside of that innermost, distance=1 circle. Since the first number in polar coordinates is the distance, that tells you that the distance of (1,1) from the center isn’t 1. It’s something greater than 1.

Well, duh.

I say duh, because we’ve had the tools necessary to deal with this distance issue for over two thousand years. It’s the Pythagorean theorem, or those doggone right triangles.

If you start with your Cartesian x and y coordinates, you square each of them. They are the legs of a right triangle; the distance is the hypotenuse. Once you add those two squares, you have the square of the distance:

r2 = x2 + y2


r = √(x2 + y2)

(Which, by the way, means r will usually end up being an irrational number.)

OK, that’s easy, right?

But what is θ? In this case we know it’s 45°, because x and y are the same thing. And of course if either x or y were zero, we’d know it was 0°, 90°, 180°, or 270°.

That doesn’t help us in the general case. What do you do with (3, 4)? We know that r is 5 (since 3, 4, 5 is the cliche Pythagorean triple you see in story problems all the freaking time…except when they get clever and hit you with 6, 8, and 10 or better yet, 5, 12 and 13). But what on earth is that angle?

Well, for that you need…trigonometry.

Yes, trigonometry returns, like a bad penny.

Recap of Trig

I briefly touched on trigonometry a few weeks ago. I’ll recap here.

The start of trigonometry is to consider the “unit circle.” This is the circle of radius 1 (and thus diameter=2) centered on the origin, 0.0. So the right side of the circle touches (1,0), the top edge is at (0,1), the left edge (-1,0), and the bottom at (0,-1).

Consider measuring along the curve of the circle, starting at the rightmost point at (1,0). If you follow the curve exactly one unit, you’ve covered an angle of one radian. If you walk halfway around the circle, to (-1,0) you’ve covered a distance of exactly π, so that’s π radians. It’s simply another way to measure angles, one defined by the ratio of the length of the arc, to the radius of the circle. This is fudge-factor free in technical terms, so it tends to be the way mathematicians and physicists prefer to measure angles.

Now, place the circle on a Cartesian grid. You can go to any point on the circle, and 1) there’s some angle measured from (1,0) counterclockwise that describes that point; that’s actually θ. (r of course is 1 on a unit circle.) 2) that point also has (x, y) coordinates in the Cartesian grid.

You can define a function, where given an angle θ on the unit circle, the function gives you x. You can define another function that, for the same θ, gives you y. These are respectively the cosine and sine, respectively (and are abbreviated cos and sin).

This time the Wikipoo diagram is perfect:

If you were to plot these functions versus θ you would see the following:

for cosine, and for sine:

The graphs stop at θ=2π because the functions simply repeat, over and over. Which is logical because once you’ve gone around the circle once (2π radians), you’re back where you started, and another five degrees after that will just look like the first five degrees did.

If you’re thinking the two curves are identical, just offset from each other, you’re right. The sine lags the cosine by 90 degrees or π/2.

Another thing to notice is that almost any cosine or sine value can come from more than one angle. Looking, for instance, at the sine graph, it hits 1/2 at two places…one just before 1/4π and one just after 3/4π. (In fact it’s at 1/6π and 5/6π.)

There is one more function that will be useful to us shortly, and that is the tangent, abbreviated tan. This is the rise over the run for the angle θ, in other words its grade or slope. You can find this by dividing the sine by the cosine. But be careful, if the cosine is zero, then only Donald Trump (being Batman) can do the computation, the rest of us are not allowed to divide by zero.

Here is the tangent, graphed:

Note that it zooms off to infinity at π/2 (sine is close to 1, cosine is close to zero. Dividing by a small number leaves you with a big one). Right after π/2 though it’s a negative number. Because the sine is still positive, but the cosine is now negative–the point is to the left of the y axis. And note these kind of swoopy curves repeat not every 2π radians (360 degrees) but every π radians (or 180 degrees).

OK, we’re actually well on our way to being able to convert polar to Cartesian, and back.

Converting Polar to Cartesian, and Vice Versa

It’s actually easiest to explain this if we go from polar to Cartesian first.

In polar coordinates we have a distance, r, and angle, θ. We just saw that on a unit circle, θ is associated with x and y, which is what we want, by the cosine and sine functions. So, if it just so happens that r is 1, then:

x = cos(θ)
y = sin(θ)

Of course, almost all points are not on the unit circle.

Luckily we can just scale things. If r is 2, just multiply your cosine and sine by 2. If it’s 1/8th, multiply your sine and cosine by 1/8.

Bascially, just multiply them by whatever r happens to be.

So we have:

x = rcos(θ)
y = rsin(θ)

That’s nice and tidy. It’s a little more complex going the opposite way, from Cartesian to polar.

It’s easy enough to compute r with the Pythagorean trick, as mentioned above:

r = √(x2 + y2)

The angle could be computed by reversing the two formulas above. Divide x and y by r, and you have a sine and cosine for θ. You can reverse these functions, the reverses are called the arccosine and arcsine (arccos and arcsin or cos-1 or sin-1). Each one is likely to give you two answers (remember how 1/2 shows up twice in the sine and cosine graphs, so the arcsine of 1/2 could be two different angles), but only one answer will show up in both places.

But there’s an easier way to do it as long as you keep your brain engaged. Divide y by x, and you have the tangent of the angle. Then just take the arctangent and you have θ.

Well, almost. If x is zero, don’t do this. Instead just look at y, and if y is positive, θ is 90 degrees, if y is negative, θ is 270 degrees.

The other problem is that the tangents of the angles from 180-270 degrees are the same as the tangents of the angles from 0-90. Similarly the angles from 90-180 and 270-360 have the same tangents. So, go ahead and take your arctangent…but then, if y is negative, your angle is between 180-360 not between 0 and 180.

OK…yes, there was a point to this. I’d go on, but I’ve probably already overloaded some brains here. So next week, I’ll continue this.

Depending on SS to do the right thing?

Nah, them SS have tunnel vision. Keep protectees safe.

NOTHING else matters, to SS.


It’s just an idea. It makes sense that people close to the situation who have access to the areas in question know a lot more and could shed light on it. Of course, it would probably mean the end of their jobs, so it’s not likely to happen. But IMO putting these kinds of ideas out there is not a bad thing.

What’s really shocking is the number of obese (sometimes mordbidly obese) kids. Even over here in Germany, where in the 70s and 80s there was nary a fat child to be found, there are now quite a few. And they resent being “body shamed” which is what the kids all did to the adipose ones when I was a wee laddie many decades ago…

So much for the “health conscious” gubmint. The food additive and chemical industry is just another branch of Big Pharma.

Make the kids fat, then feed them into the medical monstrosity of Big Pharma… the “food pyramid” being just one of many of their lies. One might say they’re licking their Cheops at the prospect of getting new “customers”, willing or not…..


Make people fat and sick and then give them drugs. Create the problem so you can push your solution.

One of the 45 goals of communism, as read into the Congressional Record back in 1962. Most of them have been achieved, sad to say, and I doubt that many people are even aware that these goals were read into the Record. The terrible things going on today were planned long, long ago, but with all the squirrels and shiny objects and other distractions, we seem to have lost the plot…

From https://www.beliefnet.com/columnists/watchwomanonthewall/2011/04/the-45-communist-goals-as-read-into-the-congressional-record-1963.html:

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.”

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
[Cuppa: This is probably the impetus behind all the “defund the police” activism, with social workers being hired to replace law enforcement officers]

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction over nations and individuals alike.
You may not find these 45 Communist Goals on the Web in it’s original form because in 1963 there were no digitized documents. You will find web sites that have copied them as I have. Call your local library and you can obtain an original copy there. Or ask your U. S. Congressional Member. They will be able to help you get a genuine copy of this Congressional Record of the 45 Communist Goals. ▬ Donna Calvin, The Word Warriorette

Here’s another site with analysis of each “goal”. Seems like we’ve hit most of them (or, rather, that they’ve hit us)…

An interesting comment from that, in re: item 26 ” Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.””

This is the Gramscian agenda of the “long march through the institutions” spelled out explicitly: gradual takeover of the “means of communication” and then using those vehicles to debauch the culture and weaken the will of the individual to resist.

Today those few who still have the courage to advocate public morality are denounced and viciously attacked. Most Americans are entirely unwitting regarding the motives behind this agenda.

VERY FEW of these goals have not been met; either in the USA or Europe…


Make them fat then get them to feel entitled to resent it being mentioned

Once you have analytic geometry, trigonometry is indeed very simple and straightforward.

The thing that boggles my mind is that trig was developed around the time of Ptolemy’s Almagest (roughly 150 AD) when analytic geometry didn’t really get cooking until the Cartesian plane (roughly 1637 AD). That left the world with 1500 years of functional trig “the hard way”.


How “hard” was “the hard way”?


[The value we call sin(θ) can be found by looking up the chord length for twice the angle of interest (2θ) in Ptolemy’s table, and then dividing that value by two.]

Wow! The Hill article is a hoot. We’re going to have a face off here are we? Ha! Ha! F the Southern Poverty Law Center and the freaking “The Hill”.

The group presents itself as a parental rights organization “fighting for the survival of America by unifying, educating and empowering parents.” 

However, the Southern Poverty Law Center has designated Moms for Liberty a far-right antigovernment group that “opposes LGBTQ+ and racially inclusive school curriculum, … has advocated books bans” and “spread[s] hateful imagery.”…

…Women now constitute the majority of QAnon followers, and some have attempted to carry out attacks based on the group’s conspiracy theories. In May 2020, authorities arrested Jessica Prim, who live-streamed her trip to New York City to “take out Biden” with the dozen knives she was carrying.  

On Jan. 6, 2021, Dawn Bancroft took a selfie video in which she declared, “We broke into the Capital. … We were looking for Nancy [Pelosi] to shoot her in the frickin’ brain.” 

Harassment of teachers and school board members by Moms for Liberty could easily escalate to assault and even murder.


Gun ownership among women has increased dramatically in recent years, increasing 77 percent from 2005 to 2020. Most purchase a weapon for protection. However, a 2020 survey of 6,000 first-time female firearm owners found that 14 percent indicated “riots/fear of mobs and civil unrest” and 12 percent claimed “upcoming elections/concern of bans” as prompting their interest in gun training. Both ideas figure prominently in conspiracy theories. 

Moms for Liberty can, of course, contribute to violence without perpetrating it themselves. Their bigoted rhetoric adds to the toxic slurry of hate in which extremists swim. Lone wolves who drink the ideological Kool-Aid but do not belong to a formal group have carried out the most recent domestic terrorist attacks. 

The rise of this new, female group fits into a pattern of post-Jan. 6 domestic extremism. The arrest of more than 1,000 people who participated in the Capitol insurrection and the sentencing of nearly 500, including Oath Keepers founder Elmer Stuart Rhodes and former Proud Boys leader Enrique Tario, forced groups to adjust.

…This new approach has authorities bracing for violence against local officials and volunteers during the 2024 presidential election. 

The failure of these groups to disrupt the 2022 midterms offers hope that serious trouble can be averted, but defenders of democracy must remain vigilant. In Florida, liberal “blue moms groups” have arisen to oppose Moms for Liberty. Their example should inspire all of us to organize against extremists in our communities. .. 

Oh My, Can’t believe The Hill is writing this tripe.
Hoping blue moms show up in numbers and all are painted blue. No doubt naked Trans guys will march with them. Should be fun. How do we encourage moar of this? 😆

The Hill used to have hundreds upon hundreds of comments with their articles. Guess not doing that makes them brave now. What fools.

They’re doing the same thing over here to the AfD and the parents’ rights organizations which are fighting the grooming and paedo movement (one of the favorites of the greens).

Hey Steve, at least I got part way through your post & enjoyed your discussion of the periodic table. Will hold off on the math portion until I can read the prior posts to which you refer.

Hope you (all) had a great holiday break! I’m still Up North for a few more days with my parents & youngest son. Strangely the weather around Memorial Day was hotter than that for the Fourth. Summer days tend to be pretty warm here but often it cools down nicely at night making sleep so much more enjoyable.

Sunsets across the lake are sometimes spectacular & the wind in the leaves displays its own mysterious music. I’m thankful for the escape from the downstate drudgeries & thankful to have a special family heritage place in which to enjoy such a retreat. Seeing our granddaughters enjoying themselves up here was the icing on the cake this trip!

It is a great ad, though.

Butt, Rob DeSwampiss, is uniparty.


It is a great ad aimed straight at the Trump base, but they will not vote DeSantis. That ad will NOT appeal to anyone who is center-right. And there are a lot of those.

We here need to understand that our view is more informed and educated than most voters, and hence, our views are more extreme.

The average, even somewhat conservative voter, will not like that ad. It is too aggressive.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

The fact that Team DeSantis tried to get an RNC rule that no candidate under indictment could be nominated – SUCH a low blow.


In war there is no low blow.

There is only victory or defeat.

So, regarding the clutch scenario….I had been fiddling with it on Thursday, and had been unable to get the car into gear. I had a friend drop over to return a Linux magazine, and I was talking to him, and the Fiancee had told me I could borrow her car for exactly 50 minutes to get dinner and showed-up, so I decided I was outta time and going to take it in to the shop at the gas station on Friday.

I got the shop owner to recommend a buddy of his to do a fixed-rate tow, and that happened at about 10:15 Friday morning. I had the car back by 11:30 because the shop couldn’t find anything wrong with it — and, indeed, it performed well on driving home.

So, either (a) I actually fixed it with my fiddling before getting distracted by my buddy; (b) getting hoisted up on the tow and moved around a bit fixed it; or (c) the shop bled the clutch hydraulic line and is funnin’ me about it. Either way, it seems to be working fine.

I seriously intend to have an auto shop area in my future property so that I never, never, never, never have to work on a vehicle out in the weather on a tilt with cars going by.

Last edited 11 months ago by cthulhu

I’m actually favoring (b). I was trying to do things that required the car to be flat, when it was pointed slightly uphill and had ten inches height differential between the left and right wheels because of the crown on the road.

I’d previously mentioned that I was suspicious of “self-adjusting hydraulic” brakes because mine didn’t on my Mustang. This may have been “self-adjusting hydraulic” clutch never adjusting because the car was tilted.


Hydraulic clutches are always self adjusted because they only ‘work’ [you pushing pedal] far enough to release the clutch disc from the pressure plate. There is no hard stop destination like there is with rear brake shoes. They have to retract [so the shoes don’t drag] using springs; eventually those springs must be adjusted to not pull the shoes back so far.

note: the tow completed the clutch self-bleeding procedure I described in my last explanation to you.

This DOJ is criminal. The closure of DOJ is justified, IMO.


IIRC, the House — without the Senate’s concurrence — can designate certain individuals as “non-fundable” and fund an agency only if such individual is not involved with it.

Seems a little faster and simpler than an impeachment.


“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”

Apparently we in the US have not yet reached an intolerable level of suffering.

Flynn needs to shuck PC nonsense and call Francis out. Truth Matters.


I think Flynn is reporting on this to wake up those who are slumbering. The people on this site have known so much for so long that it can be hard to imagine others not being on the same page, but information needs to be repeated, even at its most basic level, over and over to wake up more people and to highlight these issues.


He won’t …


Apparently we in the US have not yet reached an intolerable level of suffering.

No, we haven’t. Not yet. The average person is not touched by the injustices doled out to J6ers, nor to the political persecutions. This is what I was saying the other day about America: we still generally have our rights. Even with all that is going on, we have more rights than people in a lot of other countries. There have been major exceptions, the J6ers being one of them, but our rights continue to be upheld enough to keep the people quiet and even ignorant.

I also think the Left knows how far it can go before all h3ll breaks loose, and they are carefully and craftily navigating those waters.



It IS NOT rocket science.

But we are wishing republicans worked for America.


Steve notes that elements are in the s, p, d, and f blocks and doesn’t go into why.

It might come as a surprise to him that these blocks are named for “sharp”, “principal”, “diffuse”, and “fundamental” because that was how early spectroscopists described the observed spectral lines of certain elements. That was key data in figuring out the reasons for these blocks — atomic orbitals — and the s, p, d, and f orbitals were carried forward using these designations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_orbital


Could be worse, could be Linux — which is full of obscure references and in-jokes.

The original “shell” (a program that gives a prompt and executes programs depending on user input) was “sh”. It was also called the Bourne shell, because it was written by a guy named Bourne.

There was an explosion of alternative shells in the 80s, including the “C shell” (“csh”) which used a more C-like syntax.

Today, almost all systems run “bash” — the full name of which is the “Bourne-Again SHell”.

About the most obnoxious example is that the expression “cat somefile | more” from my youth has been replaced by “cat somefile | less”…..because “less” is “more”.


My first UNIX experience was with csh, because it was popularized in Berkeley — and the University of Casual Sun-Bathing’s CS Department was heavily influenced by Berzerkeloids.

Here’s a short out take from Tucker I don’t think we saw.

Tucker says the Chief of the Capitol police told him that the crowd on January 6th was filled with federal agents. He planned on airing that interview but was canceled before he could do so.

Now we know why he was canceled and fired.

Are you seeing it clearly now?

Interesting that Congress has yet to have the ex chief. What are we waiting for?

American Economic “Doom Loop” Meets Feared Gold-Backed BRICS Currency

An informative new Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today first noting the virtual Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit, which was hosted by India on 4 July, brought the focus onto geopolitical tectonic shifts, global threats and new opportunities for Eurasian powers, says The New Delhi Declaration of the Council of Heads of State of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization placed special emphasis on the need to boost economic cooperation and remove barriers in international trade amid the socialist Western colonial powers sanctions spree, and this morning, the Reserve Bank of India unveiled its roadmap to take the Rupee global.


Along with the Shanghai Cooperation Organization moving against the socialist Western colonial powers, this report notes, the BRICS Alliance of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa announced today that it’s set to introduce a new currency backed by gold, in contrast to the credit-backed US Dollar, with the decision coming a month ahead of the bloc’s summit in Johannesburg—an announcement that follows American economic experts assessing last week: “The initiative, principally driven by Russia and China – the world’s largest gold producers – aims to link the new currency to a specific weight of gold…This strategy leverages their gold-rich status and presents a formidable challenge to the dollar’s pre-eminence”.


With Deputy Chairman Alexander Babakov of the State Duma hinting last month that a gold-backed currency could have a digital component, and be supported by other commodities, including rare-earth elements, this report continues, in order to facilitate the historic change of global finance, CEO Andrey Kostin of Russia’s second-largest bank VTB observed today: “We’ve all faced the Euroclear and Clearstream problem…We believe that one of the Persian Gulf states could host the new financial depository, given the concentration of the capital in that region…The entire financial infrastructure is built in the West…We propose to create new instruments which would respond to the needs of national currency and market regulation”.


With socialist Western colonial controlled Euroclear and Clearstream being the main providers of settlement and related securities services for cross-border transactions involving domestic and international bonds, equities, derivatives and investment funds, this report details, their usefulness in global trade transactions is now outmoded for a world that will never exist again, as best documented in just published international affairs articles like “Eurasian Leaders Focus On Common Goals And Sidestep Disagreements” and “Why Russia And The US Will Never Go Back To The Pre-2022 State Of Affairs”.


Joining the BRICS historic announcement of a new gold-backed currency to take on the US Dollar, this report concludes, is the just published article “Biden, Senior Officials Set Off To Tout Notorious ‘Bidenomics’ Across US”, wherein it cites White House communications director Ben LaBolt declaring: “You aren’t done hearing about Bidenomics”—a declaration that follows the Wall Street Journal economic article “Bidenomics 101” published a year ago, wherein it observed about demented Supreme Socialist Leader Joe Biden: “The President doesn’t appear to know anything about how the private economy works”—as to what Bidenomics has accomplished, the just published leftist New York Times article “America Is Living On Borrowed Money” reveals: “The United States now borrows heavily during periods of economic growth to meet basic and ongoing obligations…It’s increasingly unsustainable…Borrowing is expensive…A mounting share of federal revenue, money that could be used for the benefit of the American people, goes right back out the door in the form of interest payments to investors who purchase government bonds…Rather than collecting taxes from the wealthy, the government is paying the wealthy to borrow their money”—and the just published economic article “CBO Report Illustrates The Cause Of Our Debt Problem: It’s The Spending, Stupid!” most gravely warns: “The combination of rising debt and rising interest payments creates a ‘doom loop’ where interest accumulates faster than the interest gets paid down”.



I see zeroHedge has just posted Pepe Escobar’s newest, related to above comment …



From that article:

Carlson also discussed his views on Donald Trump:

“I think looking back on this ten years from now, assuming we’re still around, I think we’re going to see Trump’s emergence as the most significant thing that happened in American politics in 100 years, because he reoriented the Republican Party against the wishes of Republican leaders.”

“I’m struck by his foreign policy views. You know Trump is the only person with stature in the Republican Party really who is saying wait a second why are we sending an endless war in Ukraine. Leaving aside whether Trump is going to get the nomination or get elected President or would be a good President, I can’t even asses that, all I can at this point is I’m so grateful he has that position. He’s right and everyone in Washington is wrong, everyone. And Trump is right on that question and it’s a big question. That war is reshaping the world. It’s reshaping the economy of the world. It’s reshaping populations.

“Europe will never be the same because of this war and it really matters, and Trump alone among popular figures in both parties understands that and I’m grateful for that.”

“Whether he gets the nomination or gets elected, words really matter. Saying something true out loud matters, and he is saying true things about Ukraine and God bless him. That’s how I feel.”

Lots of good commentary there. Slight quibble, just my opinion. Tucker says:

Leaving aside whether Trump is going to get the nomination or get elected President or would be a good President, I can’t even asses that,

Me: Yes, you CAN assess whether he would be a good president. He was president for four years and has a stallar track record of improving this country. So we DO have a basis on which to judge Trump that we don’t have with any other candidate (except JB, who also has a record as “president”).

But okay, whatever.😅 Maybe Tucker is trying to not endorse a particular candidate.


No, he can’t assess that.

If he did, he’d instantly go from truth teller to political partisan.


Since Fox wouldn’t air Tucker’s interview with the Capitol Police, I wish Tucker would do another one. I hope they would cooperate with him again.

Larry’s latest:

7 July 2023 by Larry Johnson 

“The Biden Administration is not good at logic. Watch Biden’s National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan, insist that Ukraine is doing swell and that the United States must send cluster bombs because both Ukraine and the United States have run out of conventional 155mm shells. What?

The Biden Administration, in keeping with its established track record, performed another policy making back flip by agreeing to send illegal cluster bombs to Ukraine. The real news in Sullivan’s malevolent cheerleading for the destruction of Ukraine is his admission that the United States has depleted its stock of 155 military shells and now, out of desperation, signed on to provide a banned munition that he hopes will break the morale and the defense of the Russians. Any chance that the cocaine found in the White House library belongs to Sullivan? Just asking.

The next video encapsulates the reality Russia confronts — this is not just a crazy policy advocated by Biden, it is bipartisan insanity. The Republicans want more cow bell. Biden tells Fareed Zakharia that he will not support bringing Ukraine into NATO while the war rages in Ukraine because that would mean war with Russia. Give Dementia Joe some credit — he is right. It is the Republicans, with Lindsey Graham leading the charge, demanding that Ukraine be fast tracked to NATO membership. There is no voice of sanity in Washington calling for an end to U.S. provocations that risk a war with Russia.”

Sullivan declares whatever it takes to secure the tribe’s “New Jerusalem” agenda.

Ukraine has been a ‘de facto’ member of NATO since 2014 Coup via Ms New Land.

Following is Victoria “Fuck the EU” Nuland’s idea, no doubt:

“The US is willing to offer Kiev a sort of security arrangement currently offered to Israel instead of membership in NATO, President Joe Biden told CNN in an interview previewed on Friday. ‘I don’t think it’s ready for membership in NATO,’




Biden and his neocon cabal know Ukraine has lost the war, so they’re determined to hand Russia a cluster-bomb-riddled territory where Russian civilians will continue to be killed and maimed for decades. This is the “scorched earth” tactic the Nazis used in Europe during WW2. That’s the kind of monsters that are running this government — true moral degenerates…


What this will really lead to is world-starvation. Ukraine is the breadbasket of Europe. If all the people leave because of the dangers of the cluster-weapons, who will farm the land?


And being Depopulation Theorists we understand that this can easily be their intent.




past tense …

food problems exist because of US sanctions … and programs

Most Global South (once called 3rd world countries) are not allowed to grow their own food …

I know you read that as incredulous … there’s info online to confirm


This is an old article … USG has been oppressing 3rd world for … it doesn’t like competition …


That is appalling.


But farming is bad for the environment! Dintchknow?




There’s video of a new system of targeting pests using AI controlled lasers instead of using chemical pesticides.

The next application is to the guy/gal who adapts it to minesweeping from low flying drones using a grid pattern.


Good idea!


Or puts it on a tripod and allows it to stumble about like in War of the Worlds. 😮



Cluster bombs don’t end wars: they prolong the killing for years afterwards’


I am not sure how long Putin will be able to resist pressure from the Russian military to intensify the war and increase the targeting U.S. assets, such as the Global Hawk, that are facilitating the deaths of hundreds of Russian civilians. Can you imagine the outrage that would consume America if Russian supplied munitions were being used to kill U.S. citizens along the border with Mexico?

Too true. Ukraine has been shelling civilian targets in Belogrod (inside Russia) regularly for over a week. You can bet the generals are pressuring Putin and that Putin is keeping a ledger.

Kennedy: If My Record Was as Bad as This White House ‘I’d Probably Give My Staff Blow, Too’

Kennedy: If My Record Was as Bad as This White House ‘I’d Probably Give My Staff Blow, Too’ (breitbart.com)


Today’s hunt for COVID-19 “vaccine” effects information:

h/t marica’s blog:
(also at: https://doi.org/10.3389/fonc.2023.1158124)
“B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma following intravenous BNT162b2 mRNA Booster in a BALB/c mouse: A case report”
Sander Eens, et al.
Published online May 1, 2023 (Belgian study)
Yours Truly: In this experiment, 14 young mice were injected with two scheduled doses (6mcg each dose) of the BNT162b2 (Pfizer-BioNTech) COVID-19 “”vaccine.” There was also a 14-mouse control group that were injected with two scheduled doses of saline solution.
Of the 14 “vaccinated” mice, one died within two days. The autopsy of this mouse revealed multiple organ infestation with B-LBL (B-cell lymphoma cancer.) In addition, the other “vaccinated” mice exhibited failure to keep / gain normal weight, whereas the control group did gain normal weight.
IMO, this study is limited by some factors:
No actual COVID-19 spike protein was seen in the organs of the deceased mouse.
The study authors make it clear that there “might be” a causal relationship between the “vaccine” and the rapid emergence of the multiple cancers in the dead mouse, but basically state that nothing is definite and there needs to be more studies performed.
Yours Truly will note that there is NO statement by Pfizer-BioNTech that genotoxic or carcinogenic studies were performed for either BNT162b2 or its “Bivalent COVID-19 Vaccine” prior to these products being granted EUA by the FDA.

“Repetitive Exposures to DNA Reactive/Genotoxic Substances Can Induce/Promote/Progress Cancer”

by Walter M. Chesnut
Yours Truly: The redoubtable Mr. Chesnut discusses the potential for cancer as an outcome from repeated mRNA-based COVID-19 “vaccinations”, and that he believes there will be a large number of “vaccinated” people coming down with various cancers due to the mechanisms of these “vaccines.”

Thank You, Jesus, for blessings received and prayers answered !!!



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.

Must be a cryptic jigsaw puzzle, Iron Horse

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Heap big message!


A local bar was so sure that its bartender was the strongest man around that they offered a standing $1,000 bet.

The bartender would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass, and hand the lemon to a patron.

Anyone who could squeeze one more drop of juice out would win the money.

Many people had tried over time (weightlifters, longshoremen, etc.) but nobody could do it.

One day a scrawny little man came in, wearing thick glasses and a cheap suit, and said in a tiny, squeaky voice, “I’d like to try the bet.”

After the laughter had died down, the bartender said okay, grabbed a lemon, and squeezed away.

Then he handed the wrinkled remains of the rind to the little man.

But the crowd’s laughter turned to total silence as the man clenched his fist around the lemon and six drops fell into the glass.

As the crowd cheered, the bartender paid the $1,000, and asked the little man, “What do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a weightlifter, or what?”

The man replied, “I work for the IRS”.


A winner … !!!

Scum. We see you.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy


I find her grandiosity of herself to be unappealing and arrogant. She is not the first or certainly and of the best.


If people start thinking along these lines, it will be a problem for them. He needs her to provide personality, warmth, and relatability, but the more she tries to do that, the more it looks as if she’s running the show. I think her professional background and ability to relate to people are assets, but my impression is that she can be ruthless when it comes to politics. That needs to be seen.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I like her, but I prefer Melania’s maturity and dignity as FLOTUS.

I’m not a hater on Meatball, but I think he’s not ready for prime time, and it’s showing.


I don’t know if I’d call myself a hater. I just think I can SEE who he is now. He is disloyal to Trump, who made his political career. He is running against Trump, who has a proven track record of what he has done, and can do, for the country. There is no reason for DeS to be running now. He could have waited and supported Trump, but instead he is making it look as if Trump needs to be defeated and kept out of office. 😡 His supporters are RINOs who want to return to politics as usual, pre-Trump, where Repubs seem conservative but end up giving globalists everything they want, just on a slower timeline. I haven’t seen anything from DeS to show me that he doesn’t fit into the categories above. That makes him a wolf in sheep’s clothing, IMO.

WOW. That’s unreal!


The Thinker is on Bitchute …

Telling what everyone should know about Iraq … and Europe…

Highly recommend


Thanks for the recommendation phoenix…I tend to think some of the info from the past couple days suggests that “The Thinker” has analyzed the situtation quite well…..

On Thursday,  Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak announced, after a meeting with his British Defense Minister Ben Wallace, as well as the head of British diplomacy Foreign Minister James Cleverley in London, that British air defense system “Sky Saber” in Poland is protecting deliveries to Ukraine,

Blaszczak:  “We appreciate the fact that the British detachment ‘Sky Saber’ deals with the protection of the Hab in Rzeszów, through which aid goes to Ukraine,” (and arms deliveries, and mercenary movements and the movement of at least 24,000 newly trained Ukrainian soldiers are moving in and out of Rzeszow, Poland, and we can’t forget that the reason the “Sky Saber” was allowed on Polish soil was because Ukraine fired a missile into Poland and declared the Russians had done the firing, therefore Poland too, required protection.)

Last night, there were more ‘disruptive riots’ in the capital of Tbilisi in the Republic of Georgia:
July 8 (Reuters) – Up to 2,000 anti-LGBT protesters broke up a Gay Pride festival in the Georgian capital Tbilisi on Saturday, scuffling with police and destroying props including rainbow flags and placards, though there were no reports of injuries.


And Lastly, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg stated yesterday that after the NATO summit, NATO will adopt three defense plans which are aimed at fighting the two main threats – Russia and terrorism.

One plan is planned for the North and the Atlantic, another for Central Europe, and the third for the Mediterranean and Black Sea regions,”

The new military plans of the NATO Alliance will include the deployment of 300,000 soldiers in Europe in a state of high alert,

Cuppa Covfefe


Maybe that’s why they want all the Mozzies here…..

So, it’s not just “fighting down to the last Ukrainian”, it’s “fighting down to the last European”…..

Damn those war mongers to Hell and that includes Nuland who should find a new land to live in…..


300,000 men under the direction of unelected politicians…whatever could go wrong????


phoenix, how can this excellent vid ab Poland’s role be accessed? I see it is on Rumble, but how is it found?


Here is the link … bitchute … remove the asterisks



oops … WP ignored the asterisks … trying again

I split the url for bitchute from the vid url … and you can find vid url in ‘reply to this comment – just put the two urls together




hope this works!


If a cop who actually didnt kill “saint george floyd” can go to prison, this coward from the Lorain Police Department in Ohio who shot and killed an excited golden retriever should lose his job and go to jail too. Someone already bradylisted him for it.
What a pos. “It attacked me.”
Thereis bodycam of the shooting in the article. Clearly, the dog was just harmless.

An Ohio community is calling for the termination of a police officer who fatally shot a loose golden retriever in front of the pup’s horrified family.
Elliott Palmer, of the Lorain Police Department, near Cleveland, was caught on his own bodycam footage shooting 3-and-a-half-year-old Dixie dead after she approached him on Sunday. 



Hell! What about the Minnesota shooting of an Aussie woman. She’d called 911 because she heard a woman screaming and when the cops showed up the AA Muslim hire shot across the car and his partner, killing her.


He went to prison, but it was overturned. Not sure of status. That was criminal. He never shouldve been in the US.


He should never have been a cop.
he would not touch an infidel woman with his hands even to shake


Good to see you here! Hope all is well with you and yours.


I have a question for anyone living in OH.
What is it about amendment One in OH, the vote August 8 ?
I do not understand if it is better to amend the Constitution or not ?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

The Ohio Amendment One is GOOD. It prevents easy, borderline, Soros-funded changes to the state constitution designed to enable stolen elections. It requires that a stronger majority be in favor of changes – not a simple 50% majority.

This change was suggested by the very non-establishment, pro-military, MAGA, highly patriotic, Secretary of State, Frank LaRose. He is fighting off the Soros bots left and right.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

The Soros orgs use Lawfare to unundate the state with sneaky changes that can then be abused by the left.

The leftists SAY this is about abortion, but it is not. It’s about elections.


Thank you so much. I knew you have the answer 🙂


“Alex Christoforou (The Duran) pointed out that when someone at Yellen’s level from a major nation makes a visit, the host country usually organizes a full day itinerary, capped by a dinner that evening.

Yellen had a meeting with Chinese officials, and that was that, and she was set loose.

Pictures circulated on social media of Yellen having dinner with her staff at a Beijing restaurant that evening. I don’t know what US officials expect on a visit when they go to another country and lecture them in the most patronizing way.”


She bow repeatedly and used the wrong name for the guy she met. I mean, we all know they look alike but that’s incompetence
