2023·08·12 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

Speaker Dungsmear? Or?

McCarthy 2.0 seems a vast improvement over Speaker Dungsmear. So here’s the question. Was he once a conservative with a little fire in the belly that got captured by the system and now is finding the bellyfire again? Or is this all completely under duress?

For the moment, it doesn’t matter which one. But some day it will matter, and we will have our answer.

RINOs an Endangered Species?
If Only!

According to Wikipoo, et. al., the Northern White Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum cottoni) is a critically endangered species. Apparently two females live on a wildlife preserve in Sudan, and no males are known to be alive. So basically, this species is dead as soon as the females die of old age. Presently they are watched over by armed guards 24/7.

Biologists have been trying to cross them with the other subspecies, Southern White Rhinoceroses (Rhinoceri?) without success; and some genetic analyses suggest that perhaps they aren’t two subspecies at all, but two distinct species, which would make the whole project a lot more difficult.

I should hope if the American RINO (Parasitus rectum pseudoconservativum) is ever this endangered, there will be heroic efforts not to save the species, but rather to push the remainder off a cliff. Onto punji sticks. With feces smeared on them. Failing that a good bath in red fuming nitric acid will do.

But I’m not done ranting about RINOs.

The RINOs (if they are capable of any introspection whatsoever) probably wonder why they constantly have to deal with “populist” eruptions like the Trump-led MAGA movement. That would be because the so-called populists stand for absolutely nothing except for going along to get along. That allows the Left to drive the culture and politics.

Given the results of our most recent elections, the Left will now push harder, and the RINOs will now turn even squishier than they were before.

I well remember 1989-1990 in my state when the RINO establishment started preaching the message that a conservative simply couldn’t win in Colorado. Never mind the fact that Reagan had won the state TWICE (in 1984 bringing in a veto-proof state house and senate with him) and GHWB had won after (falsely!) assuring everyone that a vote for him was a vote for Reagan’s third term.

This is how the RINOs function. They push, push, push the line that only a “moderate” can get elected. Stomp them when they pull that shit. Tell everyone in ear shot that that’s exactly what the Left wants you to think, and oh-by-the-way-Mister-RINO if you’re in this party selling the same message as the Left…well, whythefuckexactly are you in this party, you lying piece of rancid weasel shit?

In Defense of Ranked Choice Voting

One of the biggest obstacles to direly-needed change is RINOs, and one of the weapons in their arsenal is the “Wasted Vote” argument.

Periodically a third party has arisen, trying to hold RINOs to account by putting pressure on them from outside of the party, since doing so from the inside has historically done very little good. But, even if you find a third party candidate who perfectly reflects your views, you’re likely to vote for the RINO anyway. Why? Because if you don’t, the Democrat might win, and that would be even worse. So if you vote for that third party (that few will vote for), you’re throwing your vote away and increasing the likelihood of the Democrat winning. (It’s half as much a gain for the Democrat, as actually voting for the Democrat would be. Not as much, but half as much. Because although you denied the R your vote, you did not flip your vote to the Democrat.)

The Republican Party Establishment knows you don’t love them. But they know you hate the Democrats worse, and they use that to continue to herd you into supporting them. With gritted teeth you cast your vote, but your vote counts the same whether you cast it enthusiastically. And the other alternative, pissing on the voting apparatus to express your actual feelings, is probably a felony.

But what if you could vote for that third party without increasing the chances of the Dem walking away with the prize?

This is what ranked choice voting, or instant runoff voting, can do provided it is properly implemented. (And this includes the votes, and only genuine votes, being counted honestly, of course. However, I’m going to compare it to what we have today, and pretend that is honestly done too. RCV can’t work if it’s not honestly administered, just like our current system isn’t working because it isn’t honestly administered.)

The idea behind RCV is to vote by expressing your order of preference. You could vote for the Patriot Party, then for the RINO Party as your second choice (and ignore the Democrat, the Green, the Overt Socialist Schmuckmonkey Party, etc).

What does this do? It nullifies the wasted vote argument. Your vote will be counted for the Patriot party, first, then instead of it being “wasted” when the Patriot Party loses, it ends up going to the RINO. Actually, it’s just barely possible that the Patriot Party would actually beat the RINO, if people weren’t all individually afraid to vote for it.

It’s just like the famous “Prisoner’s Dilemma” where your fear of other peoples’ actions prevents you from doing the optimal thing–and vice-versa. As long as Job Lowe is afraid to vote Patriot because he’s afraid you’ll vote RINO, you’ll have to vote RINO because you fear that Job Lowe will, because he fears you will.

So on the whole I like RCV. It gives you a no-risk way to vote against the RINO scum, and in favor of someone who deserves your vote.

The problem is, as done here in the US, it comes packaged with a “jungle primary.” A bunch of candidates get to put their name out there, and the top four (or so) candidates get onto the “main” ballot. This gives party establishments their way around the threat of a good third party bumping them off. Because they know that few people bother with primaries, and third parties don’t have the resources to run in a primary…so they throw two or three establishment hacks into the primary and they will probably beat the third party. The result is the RINOs end up with two of the four slots in the general election, and the Dems get the other two. Now there’s suddenly no third party candidate on the ballot at all.

If we were to combine RCV with the present system where each party could nominate exactly one candidate to appear on the November ballot, or at the very least, ensure minor parties could get onto the ballot with at least one candidate regardless of the primary, we would be getting somewhere, but the establishment is smarter than we like to give them credit for. They will support the jungle primary + RCV “solution” rather than the more appropriate one-candidate-per-party + RCV solution.

It’s not RCV that is the problem, it’s the primary structure grafted onto it.


It says “Justice” on the picture.

And I’m sure someone will post the standard joke about what the fish thinks about the situation.

But what is it?

Here’s a take, from a different context: It’s about how you do justice, not the justice that must be done to our massively corrupt government and media. You must properly identify the nature of a person, before you can do him justice.

Ayn Rand, On Justice (speaking through her character John Galt, in Atlas Shrugged):

Justice is the recognition of the fact that you cannot fake the character of men as you cannot fake the character of nature, that you must judge all men as conscientiously as you judge inanimate objects, with the same respect for truth, with the same incorruptible vision, by as pure and as rational a process of identification—that every man must be judged for what he is and treated accordingly, that just as you do not pay a higher price for a rusty chunk of scrap than for a piece of shining metal, so you do not value a rotter above a hero—that your moral appraisal is the coin paying men for their virtues or vices, and this payment demands of you as scrupulous an honor as you bring to financial transactions—that to withhold your contempt from men’s vices is an act of moral counterfeiting, and to withhold your admiration from their virtues is an act of moral embezzlement—that to place any other concern higher than justice is to devaluate your moral currency and defraud the good in favor of the evil, since only the good can lose by a default of justice and only the evil can profit—and that the bottom of the pit at the end of that road, the act of moral bankruptcy, is to punish men for their virtues and reward them for their vices, that that is the collapse to full depravity, the Black Mass of the worship of death, the dedication of your consciousness to the destruction of existence.

Ayn Rand identified seven virtues, chief among them rationality. The other six, including justice, she considered subsidiary because they are essentially different aspects and applications of rationality.

—Ayn Rand Lexicon (aynrandlexicon.com)

Justice Must Be Done.

Trump, it is supposed, had some documents.

Biden and company stole the country.

I’m sure enough of this that I put my money where my mouth is.

The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system. (This doesn’t necessarily include deposing Joe and Hoe and putting Trump where he belongs, but it would certainly be a lot easier to fix our broken electoral system with the right people in charge.)

Nothing else matters at this point. Talking about trying again in 2024 or 2026 is pointless 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 in the system is not part of the plan, you have no plan.

This will necessarily be piecemeal, state by state, which is why I am encouraged by those states working to change their laws to alleviate the fraud both via computer and via bogus voters. If enough states do that we might end up with a working majority in Congress and that would be something Trump never really had.

Sines and Cosines from Plain Old Arithmetic

Well after last week’s difficulty with editing I’m going to have another go at it.

I ended by stating that there was a way of computing the sine and cosine of any arbitrary angle, without knowing any other sines or cosines.

This is good because if you do need other sines and cosines as inputs, then roundoff error in the previously determined sines and cosines will start you off wrong, and you’ll be making an roundoff error here (remember you can’t specify most of these numbers precisely, they’re irrational). These errors will only accumulate. A direct method that doesn’t depend on other calculations would be much better.

We have that method. Sort of. There are a couple of caveats: This method will give you an approximation, though you can put more work into it and get it as close to the actual sine or cosine as you want. The more accurate you want, the more work you will need to do. (It becomes precisely accurate if you do infinite work.

And the other caveat is you have to give your angle in radians, because that is the “natural” way to measure an angle: as a distance along the arc of a circle.

OK, here we go:

Remember a few weeks ago (https://www.theqtree.com/2023/06/10/2023%C2%B706%C2%B710-joe-biden-didnt-win-daily-thread/) I talked about the Taylor series, and a special case of it called the MacLaurin series. These can be used, in some cases to compute values of a function that might otherwise seem intractable, and by using pure arithmetic.

The function must be infinitely differentiable, which is a calculus concept. I’m going to try to explain it, but if you don’t want to know it won’t hurt you not to know…much. You may want to skip the next few paragraphs…I’ll put bold where it’s safe to pick up so you can scan for it.

Basically, if you have a function like sinx which is shown below with x in radians.

…you can create another function that gives the slope of sin x at any given point. So what would such a function look like? Well, when x is zero, the slope of the wiggly line is just about 1. Which is to say, right there at x = 0, it’s climbing at the rate of one square vertically for every one unit to the right (in radians). Our new “slope of sin x function” has a value of 1 at x = 0. At π/2 (or 90°), the curve of sin x is level, so the slope is zero. At π, the slope is -1. At 3π/2, it’s zero again. And at 2π, it’s back to being 1 again.

We already know of a function that has these values at these points. It’s the cosine of x. Is that a coincidence? Actually, no. It turns out (after a lot more proof than I am going to show you), that the “slope of sin(x) function” is indeed cos(x). Now for some terminology; the correct way to phrase this is “the derivative of sin(x) is cos(x).”

You can repeat this exercise for cos(x), and you will get -sin(x). So the derivative of cos(x) is -sin(x). But cos(x) is already the derivative of sin(x), so the derivative of the derivative of sin(x) is -sin(x). But we don’t want to say “the derivative of the derivative of..” so we call that the second derivative.

Unsurprisingly, the derivative of -sin(x) is -cos(x). And the derivative of -cos(x) is back to sin(x). In other words, you can keep taking the derivative of the derivative of the derivative…forever. Kind of boring.

But that’s what it means to say that sin(x) is infinitely differentiable. With most functions you’ll eventually end up with a derivative that’s zero for all values of x, and then you’re done. But not with sin(x) and also (since it shows up in the chain) not for cos(x).

Which means that sine and cosine are infinitely differentiable and we can use the Maclaurin series on them.

(OK the calculus-averse are back with us now, and we can continue.)

So here is the Taylor series of any function, f. The idea is to pick a central point, a, and then compute the value of f for some nearby x. Note that all of the terms have xa in them; you get closer if x is very close to a.

If a is zero, it becomes the Maclaurin series:

And the tick marks denote the first, second, third, and four derivatives.

The 1!, 2!, 3! etc are factorials. You get a factorial by multiplying the number by every smaller number down to 1. So 4! is 4 x 3 x 2 x 1. (Practically, of course, you don’t bother multiplying by 1.)

So if we set a equal to zero (we’re going to be interested in values for x close to zero), the formula can simplify.

I pointed out in the section you skipped over that the first derivative of sinx is cosx, the second derivative is -sinx, the third derivative is -cosx, the fourth derivative is sinx again, and so on…the cycle repeats.

So if I substitute those in we have:

sinx = sin(0) + (cos(0)/1!)x + (-sin(0)/2!)x2 + (-cos(0)/3!)x3 + (sin(0)/4!)x4 + …

But we know that the sin(0) is zero, and so is -sin(0). So we can simply throw a bunch of these terms out (and as I do so I’ll bring in more terms from where the ellipsis was)

sinx = (cos(0)/1!)x +(-cos(0)/3!)x3 + (cos(0)/5!)x5 + (-cos(0)/7!)x7

And the others (cos(0) and -cos(0)) can be replaced with 1 and -1 respectively, so simplifying:

sinx = xx3/3! +x5/5! – x7/7!…

This is a nice pattern. Every odd power of x, divided by the factorial of the power. Every other term gets a minus sign. The further you carry it out, the more accurate you will be. Also, the closer to zero x is, the more accurate it will be, but you can always just carry it out further if x isn’t very close to zero, to make up for it. If you can follow this infinitely far, you can get the correct answers for numbers very far away from 0, as far away as you like.

Here is a graph of sinx, along with a graph of what you get out of the Maclaurin representation taken to the x7 term.

As a practical matter you do not need to go past x=π/2, because the function makes the mirror-image curve going down to π as it did climbing to π/2. So the sine of 89° is the same as the sine of 91°, and so on. And the stretch from π to 2π is also a mirror image, except flipped vertically. After that, it repeats. So even though you can see some difference at x = π, and a lot of difference at 2π, you can probably get everything you need from the range 0 to π/, where this is pretty close.

So you can get pretty close with this function, between –π/2 and π/2. I’ll repeat it with the factorials written out:

sinx is roughly equal to: xx3/6 +x5/120 – x7/5040.

Certainly the brain inside a calculator should be able to do that very quickly! And so, that’s probably what it does. It might go out one or two more terms:

xx3/6 +x5/120 – x7/5040 + x9/363,880 – x11/39,916,800

But you can see if x is small you’re not going to get much change from the x11 term.

So let’s do the same thing for cosines. Now when we go back to the MacLaurin series, everything shifts over, it starts with cosine, then -sine, then -cosine, then sine.

cosx = cos(0) + (-sin(0)/1!)x + (-cos(0)/2!)x2 + (sin(0)/3!)x3 + (cos(0)/4!)x4 + …

And now we know that the cosine of zero is 1, and the sine of zero is zero, so:

cosx = 1 + –x2/2! + x4/4! + –x6/6! + x8/8! +…

So here we have a pattern oddly like, but oddly unlike, the sine version. Now it’s the even powers of x (including x0 = 1) that show up, again with alternating signs.

And we have:

cosx is roughly equal to: 1 – x2/2 +x4/24 – x6/720 + x8/40,320.

So we can get increasingly accurate. Because, remember sine and cosine swap at 45 degrees. The sine of 60° is the same as the cosine of 30°, so if you want the sine of 60°, compute the cosine of 30° instead; your answer will be closer. (Needless to say first, convert to radians!) So we really only need these series to be accurate enough for whatever our purposes are, to 45° or π/4 radians.

Next time: I pull a mathematical rabbit out of my hat!

The old lady throws me out of the nest this morning and says not to come back without a fish — I’ve been sitting on that stupid branch overlooking the lake for seven hours straight! After working my tailfeathers all day, I finally get to go home, get some shuteye, and enjoy some Justice.

I have no words.  😟 


If I remember, next time I’ll write it from the perspective of the tiny worm that the little fish just ate….

Cuppa Covfefe

Sounds fishy to me 🙂


Okay, I’ve got one.

A rare treat.

The first time this person has ever heard Stairway to Heaven. I have seen more than a few reactions to this song, where partway through they recognize it.

But not this time.

This seems like the real deal 😁



I can understand his reaction. The first time I ever heard Stairway was 45+ years ago when I was in Air Force tech school. We played that song endlessly. I’ve never gotten tired of it. But I’m really shocked that he never heard it before.


There is something about that song that is just… right… 😁

I haven’t checked in a long time, but for years (in the 1990s), Stairway to Heaven was regularly voted number 1 in ‘greatest songs of all time’ lists.

I remember rockin’ out to Stairway to Heaven in junior high school, in my attic bedroom, with the shades all pulled down and the sound turned as high as it would go without distorting 😂

I had a Technics SL-D20 turntable, a Kenwood KR-720 Receiver, a BSR EQ-3000 graphic equalizer out of the Crutchfield catalog (I think), a Technics RS-B78R autoreverse tape deck, and a pair of Sansui S930 3-way floor standing speakers with 12″ woofers. Then I added a Sony CDP-302 II CD player, when prices for CD players were low enough that I could get a nice one (on sale) for under $450.

All paid for with my paper route money.

Lights out, bean bag chair in the stereo sweet spot, drop the needle and then dive for the bean bag chair before the music started 👍😁

I first got into the audiophile thing in college. My roommate had a pair of Infinity Reference Standard 3-ways, so I got an Onkyo A-7090 to drive ’em. I got a Technics SL-D3 turntable and he got a Nakamichi cassette deck….



I was doing the best I could on a paper boy’s salary 😁

If I had known better, I would have bought higher quality used equipment for the same or less cost. That’s mostly what I do now, and have done for years.

I remember in the early 1980s when the local hi-fi store had the Nakamichi autoreverse tape deck on display.

It wasn’t technically auto “reverse”, since the motors only went one direction, and the cassette itself flipped.

It was pretty cool!

I never bought factory cassette tapes either. I bought the LPs, and then made my own mix tapes.

Greatest Hits of Everyone. Like listening to a classic rock radio station, except with a better song selection 😁

Uncompressed .wav files, i.e., at least CD quality?

And then what, plug it into the home stereo?

If so, I’d have to rip about a thousand CDs to a computer hard drive. Just thinking about it makes me tired 😂

I grew up spinning rekkids. Had to clean them each play with my old Discwasher brush (still have it, still use it, even found a 30+ year old original new old stock still sealed-in-the-box replacement Discwasher on eBay, in case the one I’ve had since 7th grade ever wears out… because the newer ones just aren’t the same!), and then clean and check the needle with my stylus brush & magnifying mirror.

So I decided a long time ago, that pushing a button to open a CD player drawer, dropping a CD in, and pushing a button to close the CD player drawer really wasn’t too difficult or time consuming… I can live with that… 😁

Currently have 2325 albums on my HD, ripped to lossless FLAC. It took a while.


“It took a while.”


I bet it did! 👍😁

Robert Baker

So you have roughly 28,000 songs. If the average song is assumed to be 4 minutes that would be just under 78 days of continuous play. Take a little time off to sleep and you can have a three month rotation. I think you are ready for cthulhu radio; live from the Bay area.

Good guess — 28,661.

Some of it is a bit……eclectic…..

Robert Baker

I was assuming 12 songs per album which is the way it was when I was buying albums.

Full ahead Mr. cthulhu, maximum warp(ed) 🙂

Cuppa Covfefe

Would be nice if there was one of those CD libraries that could dump out a USB2 or 3 (heck, USB4) interface to an awaiting program on a PC to build up a FLAC, WAV, or whatever library.

Then I guess it would be “please library please, don’t crush B-17…” 🙂


They have been loaded one CD at a time, over the course of years. The vast majority are FLAC, with some of the earliest rips in .mp3(256).

And that is my CD library that I can dump out on USB. If I want it in .mp3 for the car, I can do selections and set a conversion going and…..voila!

I was stuck with a 1950s 12 volt Japanese transistor radio in a black leather case.

I still have it. I wonder if it still works. I should toss a 12 volt battery in it and find out. 🤓

Cuppa Covfefe

Or plug it in into 120v and it’ll go 10 times as fast/loud 😆

Ahhh. The good old days. When we called those radios “Jap Crap” because they had the reputation then that RED China does now, for technical things…

And how transistor radios were compared based on how many transistors they had, much like watches had “12 jewels” or “19 jewels” etc. My sister got a radio from (I think) Montgomery Ward (Airline Brand) with 6 transistors and it was like winning the AM (/FM?) lottery…

Here it is, complete with box 🙂

Gail Combs

I double checked, It is a 12 transistor Radio….

I had 12 volts on the brain because we are having trouble with the NEW 12 volt battery in the lawn tractor and spent all day yesterday chasing down the bad connection it seems. And yeah it is now fixed.

Great for jumping stuff with, not really great for a paper route, but it got the job done!

My paper route was in a very hilly area, about a half mile from my home, and the route was in a wealthy part of town so houses were not close together.

I could only carry half the papers in the carrier you put over your head and wear like a poncho, so I had to make two trips every day.

Sunday was the worst because the newspapers were at least twice the weight as weekdays. I was in amazing physical / cardio shape.

Good times! 😂

Valerie Curren

Sounds like a route that was uphill Both ways 😉 😉

You have Amazing recall of the details of your bike….hmmm I had a 10 speed bike behind which I pulled a red metal wagon using a rope & the wagon would crash into my back tire whenever I’d stop.

My collections & tips got spent on candy & comic books & I’d also set aside money for Christmas, which amounted to maybe $40 by the time I bought presents. Oh & I tithed off the money first too 🙂


Stairway To Heaven as you’ve likely never heard it before. Greg most often plays Christian inspired music “Take Me In (to the Holy of Holies”) is a good example.

Not the best sound as this was recorded using a camcorder mic. But, still…


He’s definitely working that harp!

Very nicely done 👍😁


Yes, full of passion.


You know what I am always waiting for in these reaction videos, and I have never gotten? I’m waiting for the moment when the person listening gets so lost in the song, that they forget themselves and quit stopping the tape to comment.

I’ve never yet seen that moment. But I’ll admit, I don’t watch a ton of these. Maybe you’ve seen it.


Auditioning for clicks, I suppose. The music is typically fantastic.

The “emotion” and yammering stuff, I don’t get it. Yea, clueless old fart in Nevada. Need more coffee.


It’s a good thing they don’t have a typical listener like us listening to rap. The reaction wouldn’t be so kind.
My bf’s daughter is with a rap dude, not a young one. Sometimes he gives me his phone to listen to the dude’s latest..omg. I just look at him like he’s nutz for even wanting me to waste my time.

Gail Combs

I HATE what passes for music now a days. Rap, Heavy Metal and what ever they call the latest ear splitting headache creating noise.

I have very good hearing and I want to KEEP IT!


LOL, half of it is cussing and graphic, barely any “music” from the young punks. The OG’s aren’t much better. Most can’t carry a tune, whatever the message is is lost in the bad singing/talking/yelling/ and the synthetic beats background.

Listen to Weird Al’s “Smells Like Nirvana”, where he talks about unintelligible lyrics 🙂

“Smells Like Nirvana”

What is this song all about?

I still don’t know what I’m singin’

Boy, this oughta bug your parents


It’s unintel-ligible

I just can’t get it through my skull

It’s hard to bargle nawdle zouss(?)

With all these marbles in my mouth

Don’t know, don’t know, don’t know, oh no

Don’t know, don’t know, don’t know…

Well, we don’t sound like Madonna

Here we are now, we’re Nirvana

Sing distinctly? We don’t wanna

Buy our album, we’re Nirvana

A garage band from Seattle

Well, it sure beats raising cattle


And I forgot the next verse

Oh well, I guess it pays to rehearse

The lyric sheet’s so hard to find

What are the words? Oh, nevermind

Don’t know, don’t know, don’t know, oh no

Don’t know, don’t know, don’t know…

Well, I’m yellin’ and we’re playin’

But I don’t know what I’m sayin’

What’s the message I’m conveyin’?

Can you tell me what I’m sayin’?

So have you got some idea?

Didn’t think so — Well, I’ll see ya

Sayonara, sayonara

Ayonawa, odinawa

Odinaya, yodinaya

Yaddayadda, yaaahyaaah


The video is hilarious. Funny trivia, both Nirvana, with “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (the original) and Weird Al, with “Smells Like Nirvana” (the parody) were up (against each other) for a Grammy one year. Not sure who won (maybe it was a tie, that would be a hoot)…

Crap, I call it. Not music at all… and usually vulgar as well…

And over here they have something called techno, which I can hear for free just by listening to my dishwasher or the washer on spin cycle 🙂

Aaaaaand, it’s in this video. Custom power supplies and driver boards, etc. Cool as anything. Now I know where all that old hardware goes… Maybe I could send him a few (5-10) shipping cartons with vintage stuff 😀


“It’s a good thing they don’t have a typical listener like us listening to rap. The reaction wouldn’t be so kind.”


It only works one direction. Rap people constantly find themselves listening to more and more classic rock, folk rock, even country, after they first hear it.

But it doesn’t work the other way around 😂

I just watched this one last night 👍



The world is a better place, because John Denver’s music is in it 🙂

My parents had the album Poems, Prayers & Promises since it came out in 1971, so I grew up hearing that one, and it’s my favorite.

I have a mint condition U.S. first pressing LP (on that funky RCA flexi-vinyl) and a mint UK first pressing LP on nice, thick pre-oil embargo vinyl.

Just look at this track listing. Every one is great. I was fascinated by the spoken word ‘The Box’ when I was little, I had never heard a spoken word ‘song’ before!

Poems, Prayers And Promises (4:04)

Let It Be (Lennon/McCartney, 3:38)

My Sweet Lady (4:23)

Wooden Indian (1:38)

Junk (McCartney, 1:40)

Gospel Changes (3:24)

Take Me Home, Country Roads (3:08)

I Guess He’d Rather Be In Colorado (2:07)

Sunshine On My Shoulders (5:10)

Around And Around (2:16)

Robert Baker

In my life I have only been to 3 live pop music concerts. The first was the BeeGees. The other two were John Denver concerts. All were with my spouse.


I would love to have seen John Denver perform live! 👍

Robert Baker

In the first Denver concert he introduced a new song he had just written and, if I remember correctly, was the first time the song had been sung in public. The song: I’m Sorry.

Robert Baker

My two favorites John Denver songs:


Glad I checked back here and found this post! 👍


Those are both beautiful songs, I don’t think I had heard either one before. Maybe Thirsty Boots, it seemed vaguely familiar.

Thank you Robert!


Lol! My son used to do that to me, back in the days when he liked rap. These days we agree more often. He loves “Rich Men North of Richmond,” the workingman sensation of the last couple of days. I love it, too.


that’s an awesome song…great that he likes it too


I have seen it occasionally, but the reaction video is usually blocked shortly afterwards by youtube.

I figure they learn pretty quick that if they don’t stop to comment at least twice, youtube blocks the video for copyright violation.

Then they have to do it over again.

There are some who don’t monetize their youtube content, and they seem to get away with little or no interruption.

I also notice that the rules seem unevenly applied, but I’m guessing it has to do with monetization or lack thereof.

These guys (Andy and Alex) always listen all the way through and comment at the end. If they comment during the song, the don’t stop the song, they just say something quick while the music keeps playing:



They’re talking about it like this was the ‘hit’ song that makes people buy the whole album.

They have no idea how many other great songs they have yet to discover on that same album… it’s practically a greatest hits album 😂

Wrong. You can milk a bull but it doesn’t taste right


I wouldn’t know about that.

BUT if it is a high rated bull the semen is worth MAJOR $$$. For example in Holstein bulls, you get about 10 straws per ‘milking’ with an average price of $26 or over $250/milking.

Laura Loomer:

JUST IN: @RonDeSantis’s Presidential Campaign has just been slapped with a VIOLATION letter from the Federal Elections Commission in a 49 page letter detailing 46 pages of what the @fec is calling “Apparent excessive, prohibited and impermissible contributions” that have been made to @RonDeSantis’s campaign for President. The @FEC is giving DeSantis’s campaign until 9/11/23 to respond with documentation and a course correction, or else DeSantis’s campaign could face legal and financial penalties for not being in compliance with Federal campaign finance laws.

FEC violations, if found to be severe enough, are punishable by jail time.

According to the letter, @TeamDeSantis’s first FEC report that was filed in July is not in compliance with the law.

The letter was sent and signed by Michael Dobi, the Senior Campaign Finance and Reviewing Analyst at the Federal Election Commission (FEC).


What a train wreck… 😂


The Trump curse 😅…he should not have run against Trump.


This is a harbinger of what would come, if DeSparkless were to be the nominee. The idiots who think he’s “Trump without the baggage” would find out real quick that if the Deep State wants you to carry the load, then they’ll provide the bags.


Jesse Watters:

Kamala and Biden’s golden boy just filed for bankruptcy. Taxpayers were funding Proterra, America’s biggest electric bus company, and now the money’s missing. The whole thing was a political pump and dump scheme and top Democrats were all involved.

Al Gore, George Soros, and others were involved in this💰scheme.


“…House Republicans need to launch immediate investigations into this tax payer scam that Biden donors and cronies made a fortune from”.

Should have some free time now that they’ve been frozen out of investigating Hunter and Joe in other areas…


They should title the Congressional hearings Investigation to Nowhere, so they could have that on the crawl at the bottom of the screen on all the propaganda stations.

It’s the most honest thing they could do 😂

Awful news about Hawaii
I did read that there are 7 tunnels there and from the maps they appear to be burning.
don’t know anything about it but Epstein had a lot of evidence at his temple destroyed.
maybe some cleanup?

Maybe. Then there’s this.


Praise God!

Deplorable Patriot

The name of the parish in Hawaiian translates to “Our Lady of Victories.” There’s one of those here.


If one is looking at the video clip correctly, it appears that the church’s rectory was also spared.

Just a poem . . .

Time to Go

As I grow older my time nears to go
I may keep quiet or let you all know
If you find out, then I’ll ask you to pray
But not for more time so that I can stay

But that my going be free from great pain
And that I hold fast to Him who was slain
I’d ask that my exit be time for thought
That you’ll come my way because we’ve been bought

We’re not of this world, and I’m going home
To walk in God’s garden, never to roam
To walk at His side in full joy and peace
To see the wonders that will never cease

We’ll see, after all, our trip is the start
Of being complete, not living in part
Of being whole – what God wants us to be
As we are with Him for eternity

And so as I go, I’ll keep looking up
And being grateful that Christ drank His cup
To pay the price for the victory won
“Praise God forever! May His will be done!”


Thank you, bakocarl. Sending prayers, Good Energy, Deep Healing, and Deep Peace.

Barb Meier

 💖  Amen




I look forward to our meeting in person one day.

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

Barb Meier

Hi Dutchess, thank you for sharing these posts. They are lovely and inspirational. 



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.

Recycling, a nice concept. Certainly PC. Mostly BS, in my opinion.


Thus the nepotism. Sweet heart deals to kin and friends from dirty politicos. Often tied in with organized crime as a way to launder their illicit profits and make them look legit.

Gail Combs

Wrong TYPE of recycling. By labeling things like Grape Skins from wine pressing as ‘HAZARDOUS INDUSTRIAL WASTE’ It means you have to PAY Clean Harbors $$$$ to take your compost away.

There are at least 2 other examples I can think of where ‘REGULATIONS’ were ALL ABOUT MONEY TRANSFER (TO CLEAN HARBOURS) and had nothing to do with the environment. Like My B-in-l followed a clean harbors truck to a regular landfill after the town paid $$$ for deposing of ‘hazorous waste’ from the local school. The other example has to do with my former employee…

I’m pretty sure that Rush Limbaugh said he didn’t recycle. I don’t know his exact reasons.


I do NOT. Folks are welcome to believe and do as they wish.

All I see are “jobs programs”, added costs and stoopid regulations.

There are instances that likely make send. But, NOT common.

Gail Combs

Al cans are about the only ones. Reusable GLASS milk and coke bottles that were washed and reused made sense too.

We’re having a lot (OK, relatively speaking) of recycling places go up because people don’t take the Li-Ion rechargable batteries out, so they spontaneously combust. Had a huge fire not far from here, and the firefighters were pumping water directly out of the Neckar (wonder if they got any fish cooked thereby 🙂 ) for hours to cool the conflagration down.

I think many, MANY people aren’t aware of the danger, or simply ignore the instructions to take the batteries out. And, of course, there are probably a lot of folks who either don’t have the tools, will, or expertise to do it…

e-cars and e-bikes: not a blessing, but a curse… ending in an e-mergency…

Another Covid-effects study. What I notice about this one, like all the others, is there is NO mention of whether the studied dead were VAXXED or not. Of course.

“New data may provide answers for those experiencing persistent symptoms long after their bout with COVID-19 has ended. These may include fatigue, lightheadedness, brain fog, cognitive issues, gastrointestinal problems, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, or an inability to tolerate upright postures.

A July 15 study published in Acta Neuropathologica suggests that SARS-CoV-2 infection may damage the nerves of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), causing an inflammatory response that can later lead to dysautonomia observed in long COVID patients.”


The study is linked in the article.


Thank you for this.
Below is another paper (pre-print) along similar lines. One finds it ** interesting ** that this paper also appears not to identify if the human deceased that died of severe COVID-19 infection were “vaccinated” or not.

It IS very possible that the COVID-19 spike protein IN THE VIRUS ITSELF contains elements that can damage the brain’s structure and functions. If this is true, and since the original virus ITSELF is the “template” for the lab-enhanced spike protein + its modRNA in the COVID-19 “vaccines”, it can be argued that these brain-damaging elements from the original virus were added into the formulation for the “vaccines.”

What IS known is that TWO of the four lipid nanoparticles in the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 “vaccines” (their REAL names, ALC-0159 and ALC-0315, are NOT used in the Description of these “vaccines” in the FDA-issued Fact Sheet for Healthcare Providers for these “vaccines) DO HAVE side effects in and of themselves of CNS depression (in other words, Central Nervous System damage or issues) if one is exposed to them.

What IS known is that the lipid nanoparticles of BOTH the Pfizer-BioNTech AND of the Moderna COVID-19 “vaccines” DO cross the blood-brain barrier, carrying the spike protein + its modRNA with them.

It appears, IMO, that “Long COVID” can occur in an UN-“vaccinated” person after infection by COVID-19 and the person recovers; AND in a “vaccinated” person, EITHER as the result of a “breakthrough infection” of COVID-19 — OR, as a LONG-TERM RESULT OF THE “VACCINATED” RECIPIENT’S BODY BEING CONTINUOUSLY FORCED TO PRODUCE ANTIBODIES AGAINST THE “FAKE INFECTION” THAT THE “VACCINES” INDUCE IN THEIR BODY OVER AN INDEFINITE PERIOD OF TIME.

What IS known is that the spike protein + its modRNA in the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 “vaccines”, FACILITATED by ALC-0159 and ALC-0315, DO accumulate in the brain. This was demonstrated in the 2.6.5 Pharmacokinetics Tabulated Summary Report given by the company to the FDA in 2021.

The 5.3.6 Post-Marketing Experience report for the Pfzier-BioNTech COVID-19 “vaccine” BNT162b2, which the company gave to the FDA in early 2021, in the Appendix 1: Adverse Events of Special Interest, lists the following among other brain / neurological serious side effects of this “vaccine”:
16 types related to Central Nervous System / Cerebral issues
5 types related to Epilepsy
6 types related to Meningitis
3 types related to Multiple Sclerosis
5 types related to Seizures

The pre-print paper one referred to above:
April, 2023
“SARS-CoV-2 Spike Protein Accumulation in the Skull-Meninges-Brain Axis: Implications for Long-Term Neurological Complications in post-COVID-19”
Zhouyi Rong, et al.

Gail Combs

Remember my friend and I got Ralph Baric’s Disease the year before covid. Sortly afterwards she had a ‘ministroke’ (or so UNC told her) and then started having seizures a couple times a week for the first time in her life at age ~50. In the same time frame, I ended up with ‘Asthma’ again for the first time in my life.

I think they may have been doing some playing around with Covid at the time.

2018 was also a very bad ‘flu season’


^^^ Zero doubts in my mind this is true. They have been experimenting on all of us for over 20 years in my opinion.

Gail Combs

YUP! That is why I wrote the DePop series. It gives the PROOF!


I’m glad you saw this. You really are a subject matter expert on Covid and the quackzines!


You are very kind.
Yours Truly is not a trained scientist or a trained medical professional. However, after 3 1/2 years+ of intense reading / researching about COVID-19 and the “vaccines”, one could likely hold her own in a conversation with a “vaccinated” medical professional if necessary. Like on the subject of ALC-0159 and ALC-0315.


I’m sure you could hold your own, and probably shut them down with facts and information! The truth is, you are better off without the medical degree. They teach them a lot of erroneous things that you don’t have clogging up your brain!


My mother is shot and boosted, dunno how many. Over the past 6 months shes having a lot of skin issues. Had shingles, eczema, bilateral severe cellulitis, and differing unknown rashes that dont heal well(that part may be dt DM type 2).
And i warned her. I dont say anything now bc its done.
My lt covid stuff prob mixed w hysterectomy is still parosmia, fatigue, and some brain fog. New injury adds to it.

Wish we knew if this was, as you said, rt the shot or not.


My understanding is the shot IS the major problem.

  • Damages those that never had Covid.
  • Further damages those that had Covid.
  • Fundamentally, NO Covid Jabs IS solid advice.

I do send some stuff to Jabbed adult children. Tow focuses.

  • No more Jabs for them.
  • No more Jabs for Grands.
  • Including Triple Jab inbound – Covid, RSV, & Flu.
  • Hopefully they’ll listen, No More Jabs. Make employers fire them. Better to be healthy.

Just incredible that youve got to say something at all at this point.
I saw a blurb on news today- L.A. County workers can stop wearing masks now….

Gail Combs

Rashes that do not heal well…. Try Aloe (direct from the leaf) and vitamin E


She is unfortunately way past responding to simple things like that but it should be a 1st defense.


Yours Truly: Notice the huge uptick in excess deaths among this age group in the United States starting in 2021 (after the rollout of the COVID-19 “vaccines.”)
Nothing like eliminating young Americans and “replacing” them with illegal alien invaders flooding over the southern border, is there?

Great Reset IS glaringly clear to slow guy.


Yours Truly doesn’t think “slow guy” applies to you!

Called my congressman, Mark Amodei, Reno office Thursday.

Asked when and where Mark Amodei would be holding a town hall, as the House is in recess for two months.

  • None Planned.
  • I replied, Seriously? Yes, none planned.
  • OK, that is a surprise, Mark Amodei doesn’t reach out to citizens. Splain his positions and hear from citizens.
  • Crickets. Dope I was speaking with could not give two shits about my call.

OK. When might Mark Amodei be in the office, so I could get ten minutes with him.

  • No planned time in the office.
  • Wow. How often does he visit the office.
  • Maybe, once a month.

Suggested I go to Mark Amodei’s web site. Request a meeting.

  • OK. I did so. Completed wrong form I guess.
  • Reply suggested I rely with, whatever they sent. Completed second form.

Requested a meeting in any format.

  • Town hall, small group or one-on-one.
  • Any date and time through 22 September.
  • Most anywhere Northern Nevada. I’d drive to his location.
  • Topics I suggested to hear about, discuss, banter are.
  • J6 Political Prisoners, Trump Persecution, Budget, Ukraine Hysteria – WASTED BILLIONS, Russia Russia Russia nonsense, Biden, Mayorkis, Wray, Garland, Open Border Illegals, Biden Crime Family, Woke military…

Have zero faith that I’ll hear from these assholes.

  • Collecting Federal paychecks with No Accountability.
  • Mark Amodei likely a shoo-in for reelection as Northern Nevada is heavily conservatives AND foolishly believes rCONS care about America.

Great efforts! Please keep us updated if there are any developments.


Props for trying. That’s a cushy schedule he’s got.

That’s great. Anymore it’s either “helicopter parents” or ultra-permissive parents. Over here it’s illegal to spank children, and in some countries “time-outs” are not allowed!

And whatever you do…

Don’t Mess With Aunt Maureen
A teacher gave her fifth-grade class an assignment. Get their parents to tell them a story with a moral at the end of it. The next day, the kids came back and one by one began to tell their stories.
One little girl began: “My father’s a farmer and we have a lot of egg-laying hens. One time we were taking our eggs to market in a basket on the front seat of the pick-up when we hit a big bump in the road and all the eggs went flying and broke and made a mess.”
“What’s the moral of the story?” asked the teacher.

“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”

“Very good,” said the teacher.
Another little girl raised her hand and said: “Our family are farmers too but we raise chickens for the meat market. We had a dozen eggs one time, but when they hatched we only got ten live chicks.”
The moral to this story is, “Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.”

“That’s a fine story,” said the teacher.
A little boy at the back of the class is waving his arm wildly.

“Yes, do you have a story to share?” inquired the teacher.

Yes ma’am, my daddy told me this story about my Aunt Maureen;
“Aunt Maureen was a fighter pilot in Desert Storm and her plane got hit. She had to bail out over enemy territory and all she had was a bottle of whiskey, a machine gun and a machete.
She drank the whiskey on the way down so it wouldn’t break and then she landed right in the middle of 100 enemy troops. She killed seventy of them with the machine gun until she ran out of ammunition. Then she killed twenty more with the machete till the blade broke. And then she killed the last ten with her bare hands.”
“Good heavens,” said the horrified teacher,

“What kind of moral did your daddy tell you from that horrible story?”

“Stay the hell away from Aunt Maureen when she’s been drinking.”


I know one of those “mean” moms. Her daughter didn’t get into trouble, got her college degree, married her equally responsible college sweetheart who is moving up the ranks in his profession, and got her master’s degree. Amazing how that works.


Won’t they just claim he resigned his previous job, and fiddle the dates.

‘On The Verge Of The Abyss’ – No US Presidential Election In 2024?

In January 2023, US special counsel Jack Smith applied for -and received- a subpoena for Twitter, specifically for all of Donald Trump’s utterances at the site through the years, including the ones he may have never published. Note: the subpoena came long after Trump left Twitter. And no, it wasn’t X then, and therefore it is not now. He wrote it when it was Twitter. Important. Trump left Twitter (was cancelled) on Jan 8 2021, Elon Musk bought it on October 27 2022, and renamed it “X” in late July 2023. Just so we get our horses and dogs in line.

Special counsel Jack Smith received his Twitter/Trump subpoena with the added provision that it had to be entirely secret, not even Twitter or Trump could know. US District Court Judge Beryll Howell gave Smith what he wanted, agreeing that if Trump’s years-old Twitter past was known, he would become a flight risk. But both Smith and Howell knew this was absolute nonsense. Not only is Twitter the last place you turn to when you have nefarious secrets to hide (it’s the opposite!), but the man is running for President, for God’s sake! And because of some 5 year old -or so- tweets he would pack in the family and disappear to an -underground- bungalow on Vanatua, never to be heard from again?

I would put this down as the moment when it became impossible for the US to have a presidential election in 2024. We’ve had some 8 years of this anti-Trump circus now, non-stop, Hillary, Pelosi, Adam Schiff and Robert Mueller, yada yada yada, but I don’t think we’ve reached the point before where the elections might as well be cancelled.
We’re there now though. And that is a BIG point.
We’ve let it come far too far. We’re in slapstick territory.

Think of it as a boxing match.

In the one corner, we have the former champion/president, wearing the slightly widened red trunks. At age 77, he looks somewhat bruised and battered, but he doesn’t look beaten- yet. What’s noticeable though is that his corner is empty, except for Melania cleaning his brow, not even his own party is there to support him. There are some 90 million Americans behind him, but they are at home.

In the other corner, the defending champion, in blue trunks, weighing in at about 25 pounds and falling, looks a little lost. But behind him in his corner he has thousands of operatives: his entire party, plus the CIA and NSA and FBI and DOJ. And all the newspapers and TV channels and social media in the country. And all the judges and prosecutors, the DAs and GAs, it’s a veritable love-in. The guy in the blue trunks could be braindead and he’d still win. And I wish I was a cartoonist, and could capture the entire image in one frame. I can see it in front of my eyes, but I can’t draw it.

Where the boxing analogy goes astray is that in this case the blue side is allowed to harass the red side before, during and after the (preparations for) the fight, and during the fight itself. You can’t a have a free and fair fight, and a level playing field, if some “blue operatives” can put shackles on the ankles and wrists of the red candidate, or even lock him up while he’s preparing for the bell to ring. If the system allows him to be a candidate, it must also allow him to prepare for his candidacy, in the same way that his opponent can. That is not happening.

US special counsel Jack Smith has announced that the US plans to drag Trump before court after court starting January 2 2024. At least 3 major indictments (will be a dozen) , likely many more, and at my last count, 82 charges (it’s impossible to keep up). Smith can then finger pick any of these charges to put Trump in custody, whenever he feels like it. The judges are almost all “blue”, and so are the jury pools: New York and DC. And this is while he’s supposed to be campaigning!

And also: Trump allegedly already spent $40 million on legal expenses. But what if Trump doesn’t have $40 million? We could argue the $40 million should be spent on his campaign. Look at Imran Khan, guys, who was just convicted to a 3-year prison term in Pakistan on US directives. Like Trump, he is the most popular political candidate in his nation, and they got him on selling necklaces when he was PM.

That is Trump’s future too.
And hence, the end of American democracy.

He doesn’t stand a chance. And if he doesn’t, the system doesn’t, and you don’t. You’re fine as long as you agree with the boot stomping on your neck, and you maybe even enjoy it. But if you don’t, Jack Smith and his ilk – and Obama, Hillary, Adam Schiff, Pelosi, the whole gang, will come with charges and indictments directed at you.

You’re on the verge of the abyss.
If you want to take your chances with what you might find down there, fair enough. But always know that you have a choice.

And that, if somehow they do manage to stage a presidential election in November 2024 as things stand now, it’ll be fake from A to Z. Grow a pair, people, grow a backbone. You’re going to need them.

I don’t see value in the “no election in 2024” fearmongering.


I do bot buy it either


Gab has all the Twitter posts as I remember that could be helpful? They thought Trump might come to Gab . Trump needs to know this? Maybe Gab can see to it that trump gets the copies so he can defend himself.
Regardless what happens I vote Trump that is all I can say.

I keep on hearing that skuttlebutt about no 2024 election. Is the Cabal trying to get us used to the idea?

And since the Gore-Bull-ists aren’t wreaking enough havoc with the remnants of COVIDIOCY, they’re back to CAGW climate BS.

Simplicius (spelled it right, for once 🙂 ) has a very good article on it:


Here’s a brief comparison of 2009-ish (just when ClimateGate broke out) and now, with some pictures from all over the web, newcasters broiling and color consultants being paid to represent “hotter, Hotter, and HOTTER” 🔥 🔥 🔥 ) 😡 😡 😡 😡

For the climate lockdowns, we’ll be conditioned to normalize fire-proof biosuits and anti-melting fabrics and whatever other will-breaking accessories will be deemed necessary for the appearance of a ‘serious emergency’.

The script-writers have long deduced the secret to how it works: that if you can frill-up reality with as much stage-dressing as possible, it does half the work for you. Just like in theater—the more tangible and evocative the sets, props, and costumes you can employ, the more overtly the audience will be convinced the construct is real.

The first phase of this top-down rollout is already happening. Turn to any channel or weather network, and you’ll see the same parade of temperatures—nonchalantly reported to little fanfare several years ago—now routinely hammed up with theatric flourish:

(hope these come out)

What’s funny (not) is that the older (2009-ish) pictures have HOTTER temperatures, yet they’re GREEN and the cooler, NOT THAT HOT temperatures of the last few years are in deep deep red!

There’s also a pic of that idiot “health” minister Lauterbach, who, with a little caterpillar mustache would look just like old Adolf… probably an ancestor of his…

And here’s another from Pierre Gosselin’s NoTricksZone, a great weather site with lots of articles translated from German (and other languages) and some REALLY deep dive articles on weather, climate, and GoreBull Globalism, etc. from Kenneth Richard, among others)…


Here’s a chart comparing heat vs. cold deaths from the folks who should know: the funeral homes and embalmers:

comment image

P.S. that (darkfutura at Simplicius) article I mentioned above has a dive into the origins of the weather madness that includes some familiar globalist names (Rothschilds, et. al.) and a lot of Gail’s posts have parallel data/infos. Seems the GoreBull-ists have been busy trying to bury it all, even more reason to have a look at it (and the wayback machine)…


When I was a kid often the weather was 30C to 32C in August.
Even in the US I remember in St Louise temp going up to 98+ F%. I seldom put air conditioner on did not believe in in and then only at night. It is astounding what one can get used too. Now that my husband is home and retired the air conditioning is on 24/7 from June to October. He does not do well in heat.
Today we have 89F% but S Ohio is very humid but not worse than St Louise.

A looooong time ago in West Virginia, my cousin was helping me install insulation batts in the attic of a house I was restoring/rebuilding. Our only light source was a single 100w bulb (erm, “bub”) hanging down from the top rafter, which I broke by mistake (and killed time fixing it and cleaning up the glass).

That wouldn’t have been so bad except for the fact that it was 40°C (104°F) outside, AND RAINING!!! It was like a sauna, and of course hotter still up in that attic…

BUT, it was late August, so no surprise there at all.

And now, 46 years later, it’s neither hotter nor colder in West-by-God. And just as beautiful, I hear tell…

This week in the German south (wilden Süden 🙂 ) it’s around 30°C, with occasional thunder and lightning, raining cats and dogs and small appliances… pretty much normal for this time of year. But of course “The Weather Channel” and the DWD say we’re all gonna die and in spite of all the rain, we’re in a drought (just talk to the folks in the Ahrtal about that!)…

CAGW idjiots….

Gail Combs

I just took those 2 comments and added them to the comments at :
So they do not get lost.


I read something about how the networks are coerced into pushing “global warming” on the public. I can’t remember what the incentive or the blackmail was, but the powers-that-be have a hold over them.

Cuppa Covfefe

And from the darkfutura article I quoted above, guess who owns the weather graphics companies? the GEB “Red Shields”, to wit:

And to tie it back to the opening graphics of manipulated temperatures, here’s where it slides into creepy territory. As unbelievable as it may sound, Rothschild acquired the world’s leading provider of weather graphics for TV, web, and mobile…

This is really important reading, as it connects many, MANY dots:


The warming is a farce. When one lives long enough one experiences all kind of weather and it is a normal circle. Young people can be fooled because of their age and lived all their lives in air conditioning. I know people who never open windows just live from heat to air conditioning all year long.

Gail Combs

We used open windows up until July when it finally got hot at night so I could not cool the house down using fans.


We did also. Spring was cool.


Ugh. Europe does this bs worse than CA.

Cuppa Covfefe

They’ve been doing it longer…

(Having been born and raised in Kalifornistan and now over here, I’ve more or less gone from the frying pan into the fryer… 🙂 )….

Here’s hoping the GoreBull-ists end up in the liar fryer  🔥 

P.S. Hope you’re feeling better and managing OK !!!


Deep fat fryer?

Cuppa Covfefe

Nah, hot air fryer….. they’re full of hot air over here…

(OK, fat and full of hot air would be Ricarda Lang, head of the GreenGang over here…)….


Liar fryer. Yep.
Doing better. Managing w frustration but gittn er dun.

Valerie Curren

Hey Gil, glad to see you’re doing better!

I was talking to my sister-in-law yesterday & discussing homeschooling a bit. She has homeschooled her 5 kids, w/ just her youngest teen still at home & HS age. Most days they got schooling done between 9am & noon. Her take, at least for her kids, was that by age 12 they were almost entirely self-directed. I don’t know if that is your experience & I think your son is still grade-school age so you might not have even hit the age 12 “line” yet. They also participated in various homeschooling co-ops over the years so their kids also got various kinds of socialization w/ other homeschoolers, even a couple of classroom situations in a church school.

I’m interested in the topic because my daughter & DIL both plan to homeschool, even though neither of them were homeschooled themselves, though they both had extensive private Christian school education when they were younger. I hope to assist them, as needed or requested, once their kids reach (home) school age…


Mine has to be dupervised to make sure he is doing his work. He is tragically slow. Causes problems slow. Smart, can fo it quick, but just doesnt. He has a comprehensive schedule and never seems to be done before 2pm. Starts at 8. Yeah, one kid, long day. 🙄 math homework every day and a rather comprehensive language arts/vocab/writing course bc thats his weak point. I went to private Christian school 1-8 and did well, with typical exceptions, so i dont know how to get him to go faster. This is his personality though, bc its how he is even now during summer w everything else, and has always been this way. I just have to push him to keep speeding up i guess.

Valerie Curren

My SIL was talking about some program she ran into that advised to not teach boys reading & writing until about age 9 because they basically really struggled w/ the fine motor skills when younger, so they needed to be “working in the fields” (they clearly had farming clientele w/ that program) for those earlier schooling years & then get reading/writing started for the boys. For my nephew who had dyslexia & dysgraphia he was a late bloomer in the reading & writing arena but after seeing that particular perspective on boys my SIL lightened up on her son & though he started behind he has advanced very well to where he was scoring 98% on certain government tests.

You know your own kid best & will figure out together how to best prepare him for what’s coming down the pike.

Hope you don’t push yourself too far or too fast so your recovery has no set backs 🙂


I dont believe that about reading at all. Mine was reading extremely early at an advanced level and his vocab skills are 98% percentile. He just doesnt want to fo the work or invest time in learning proper rules and regs of writing. Now, for diagnosed learning challenges thats totally different and needs to consider delay.
Testing on govt tests, i havent bothered. At some point i will have to test him. Likely summer before 7th grade. Thatll be fun. 🥴😀

Valerie Curren

Yes my SIL’s view in that arena was likely biased by her son’s learning disabilities & his performance compared to his sisters at the same age. The government test she was telling me about was testing after her son took airline mechanics school & then tested in the 98th%ile in that domain. I don’t actually know if she had her kids tested w/ the typical standardized tests that are given in school. They did take advantage of Michigan’s free college for high school students & her kids got good grades in those classes, even though were as much as 3 years younger than their college classmates!


Good for them!


They are just further along and we are normally 6 months behind or longer. Give it some time it will come here also.

Gail, the slideshow is available. I created it on a Mac and the file format is M4V. File size 426.89 MB and 47:50 minutes long. I cannot test the M4V since I don’t have a Windows PC or other boxes. Please let me know if you cannot play the video and I can try to convert the file format. 1/2 Charlie Co. Task Force Tarawa in IraqNew

Off for nap time… hehe


Just opened. Auto play. Great clarity in the pics. Off to watching…

Barb Meier

Great, thank you for checking kalbo!! Glad you can see the images well. I tried building the slideshow in Apple’s Photos at their higher quality. I could do that but it would have been over twice the size (over a gigabyte). That’s just standard quality 300 dpi.


Works well for me, great images and sound!

Barb Meier

Thanks for checking it out, barkerjim!! I’ve enjoyed getting to see a little of what front-line Marines have done for us. Especially seeing them smile.

Barb Meier

Thanks for checking, barkerjim!!

Barb Meier

My replies to barkerjim and mollypitcher temporarily disappeared and the site asked if I wanted to leave or not. I went back to these posts and did not see either of my replies at all. So I wrote you both again. LOL User error probably…


Barb! Great slideshow and tribute to some of the heroes of our military.

Barb Meier

Thank you for watching, Molly! It’s always a good day to pay tribute to some of our military who actually make things happen.


You’re so right and a wonderful person for being the one to put it together. I tried really really hard to stay focused on them, each face, and not give into my anger and disgust at what the OBiden regime has done to the military. I loathe them for it.

Barb Meier

Thank you for the compliment! I know, Molly. I refuse to let them have our USA. It’s ours. They cannot have it.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw “Tarawa” in the name for the slideshow, for my mom’s birth father was a marine at Tarawa. We never knew him while he was alive though did meet some of his siblings, sib-kids, & his other daughters (3 girls from 3 different women) so- we only got some limited info about those war-time “adventures”. So Tarawa always makes my ears perk up just a bit 🙂


Vivek is open to pardoning Hunter. People need to wake up to who this guy is, and isn’t.


“…I am leading the great revival. After we have shut down the FBI, after we have refurbished the Department of Justice, after we have systemically pardoned anyone who was a victim of a political motivated persecution — from Donald Trump and peaceful January 6 protests — then would I would be open to evaluating pardons for members of the Biden family in the interest of moving the nation forward,” the 38-year-old biotech millionaire told The Post. 


Wouldn’t he love to have power over Trump, to give him a pardon. And 🚩”move the nation forward” 🚩means forgive and forget. That’s not how you win a war. We need justice. The lack of it is what got us here in the first place.


There you go again – lifting rocks to what crawls out.  😂

Hunter and the entire Briben Crime Family, should never be considered for pardons.

They think they can bamboozle Christians AGAIN.

stolen from Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon MAGA began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy — willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon MAGA began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon MAGA began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon MAGA began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon MAGA began to hate.



Gail Combs

I could not resist…

Think we ought to make lots of copies and send it to all the Politicians?


Anonymously of course. We sure don’t want to find American Gestapo at our doors ! A few hundred thousand from all over the US would be a great idea
