On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, we can find something here that will build us up a little . . . give us a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God;
do not mourn nor weep.” . . .
“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet,
and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”


Just a Reflection . . . Dim and Obscured

In 1 Corinthians 13:8–13, the apostle Paul compares the Christian virtue of love to other highly prized spiritual gifts and finds them all lacking. Love is uniquely superior (verse 8). As Christians, we share in giving and receiving the grace of God’s love (see 1 John 4:8, 16). This earthly experience of God’s divine love gives us a taste of His perfect grace and glory. Through the love of Christ poured into our hearts (see Ephesians 3:17; Romans 5:5), we participate to a limited degree in the full perfection we will know and enjoy when we stand in God’s presence in eternity: “For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known” (1 Corinthians 13:12, ESV).

Paul explains that spiritual gifts like prophecy, tongues, and knowledge are temporary and partial. Eventually, they “will become useless. But love will last forever! Now our knowledge is partial and incomplete, and even the gift of prophecy reveals only part of the whole picture! But when the time of perfection comes, these partial things will become useless” (1 Corinthians 13:8–10, NLT). In our current state of existence, the gifts of the Holy Spirit are valuable to us and to the church, but their worth will run out when we are face to face with the Lord in heaven. These gifts only give us an obscured, unfinished picture of our spiritual reality, and they will ultimately pass away.

Paul uses two illustrations to explain this truth. First, he employs the example of a child maturing into adulthood: “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me” (1 Corinthians 13:11). Right now, we are like children playing with plastic toys that will wear out and become unusable. One day we will trade them in for the enduring, grown-up, perfection of eternity. Second, Paul contrasts looking at someone in a dull, dimly lit mirror with meeting that person face to face. In the Greco-Roman world, mirrors were fashioned out of polished metal discs that reflected a blurred, imperfect image, nothing like seeing someone up close, in vivid, eye-to-eye clarity.

Thus, now we see in a mirror dimly is Paul’s figure of speech for “now we have imperfect knowledge and understanding.” The New Living Translation renders the imagery like so: “Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely” (1 Corinthians 13:12, NLT). Flawless understanding and unrestricted knowledge of matters pertaining to God and His kingdom will only be achieved when we meet Jesus Christ in person.

The apostle John affirms that our knowledge of Jesus is partial now but will become clear when we see Him face to face: “Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is” (1 John 3:2, NLT).

Within the Scriptures, we have the complete revelation of God, but our understanding of it remains limited (see 1 Corinthians 8:1–3). As we grow in the faith, we undergo a process of spiritual maturation as individual believers (2 Peter 3:18) and together as the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11–16). Paul calls this progressive development toward Christian maturity “the upward call of God in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 3:14, ESV). It is our heavenward journey of intimate fellowship with Jesus Christ.

Along the way, we must stay laser-focused on Jesus, who is the trailblazing forerunner of our quest (Hebrews 12:1–2). He demonstrates the way through His perfect obedience to the Father (John 4:34; 5:30; Luke 22:42). As the Author and Perfecter of our faith, He not only inspires us, but Christ also empowers us to grow toward our heavenly stature. He starts the good work in us and “will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).

In the meantime, until the Lord returns or we reach heaven, we have limited understanding and knowledge—we see in a mirror dimly. But one day our onward and upward growth in ever-increasing degrees of Christian maturity will culminate in heavenly perfection as “we bear the image of the heavenly man” (1 Corinthians 15:49).

BMI measurement deemed ‘racist’ in new medical report: ‘This is politics, not medicine’

The American Medical Association (AMA) is now discouraging the use of body mass index (BMI), calling it an “imperfect” and “problematic” means of assessing body fat and claiming it has been used for “racist exclusion.”

The comments were included in a report presented at the 2023 AMA Annual Meeting inChicago, Illinois earlier this month.

“BMI cutoffs are based on the imagined ideal Caucasian and [do] not consider a person’s gender or ethnicity,” the report stated.

The AMA also claimed that the history of the BMI is rooted in “eugenics,” which is “the scientifically inaccurate theory that humans can be improved through selective breeding of populations,” per the National Human Genome Research Institute.

What is BMI?

First created back in the mid-1800s by a Belgian mathematician named Lambert Adolphe Jacques Quetelet, the BMI has been the international standard for measuring obesitysince the 1980s, according to many sources, though some experts have questioned its validity. 

A person’s BMI is calculated by dividing his or her weight by the square of his or her height in feet.

It’s not “health care” anymore. It’s politics.

Bill Gates knows a thing or two about eugenics.

Bill Gates is descended from eugenicists.

When Bill Gates finds out about this, he’s gonna be so mad

scott467

“BMI cutoffs are based on the imagined ideal Caucasian and [do] not consider a person’s gender or ethnicity,” the report stated.

_____________

If this is true, if most of the science of medicine and discovery has been done by white people, and for white people, then maybe they have a good point.

It would be rude, presumptuous, insensitive, intolerant, arrogant, racist and just plain old mean to apply white science and white standards and white treatments to anyone who isn’t white, without their informed consent.

So how can this be resolved?

There has a to be a way, involving complete disclosure and fairness and consent to Caucasian diagnosis and treatment.

In order to provide the patient with the capacity for informed consent, there should be a sort of ‘warning label’ for starters. Like being read your ‘Miranda rights’.

When a non-white person comes in for medical diagnosis or treatment, take an hour or so to inform the patient of the basic history of Western medicine, and then disclose every test, every piece of equipment, every diagnostic procedure that was invented by white people that will be used to assess their condition.

Let them know that they have every right to refuse any or all of it, and choose to wait for a member of their own race to invent their own equipment and develop their own research and testing and procedures catering specifically to their race.

If the patient chooses to proceed with any equipment, diagnostics or procedures invented by white people, then when a diagnosis is reached, make a similar disclosure.

Disclose all of the applicable medicines and medical procedures and treatments to cure their illness that were invented by white people, so they can choose whether to take treatments made by white people, or refuse those treatments and wait for a member of their own race to invent a cure or treatment.

It’s the only way to be fair.

Gail Combs

OUCH!

Perhaps we should ONLY make ETHNIC care available to the non-whites.

the resemblance is SCARY

WSB

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Aubergine

I think BMI is useless, too, but not because it’s racist. It’s because the categories are too broad, and take no account of muscle mass. Muscle weighs twice as much as fat. There is such a thing as “skinny fat,” where a person’s body fat ratio is really high, but they don’t look fat.

Body fat percentage is a much better indicator of health. But it is harder to test, and not as convenient as just using a calculator to determine BMI, so it is not popular.

Valerie Curren

I remember those calipers(?) that were used to pinch places on the back of the upper arm, the front of the thigh, & below the shoulder blades, iirc, in order to determine BMI back at my college. I would guess that method would get closer to the actual fat issues a person would have, at least as revealed in sub-cutaneous fat deposits…

Aubergine

The best way to measure body fat is by immersion in water.

Valerie Curren

Probably an even more involved, & likely costly, way to get a more accurate reading. Some of us might be harder to immerse due to excess buoyancy 😉

Aubergine

Lol! That’s why it works!

Valerie Curren

Some of us can make good flotation devices LOL

“The best way to measure body fat is by immersion in water.”

Or the old fashioned way, by feel, like checking fruit or vegetables at the grocery store.

Some women don’t appreciate that though, especially strangers, and not all of them will believe that you’re an independent body-fat researcher doing field work, so keep your guard up 👍

Valerie Curren

So I’m still exhausted & readjusting to life back at home (as is Hubby) so even though I’ve read your comment several times during the day I Only Now Realized you weren’t theoretically checking out the women Buying the possible fruits & veggies (whose diets might imply lower fat content) but Like checking ripe melons…or something–LOL

I’m with Aubergine & consistently enjoy your wit–TYSVM  😍 

scott467

It’s a very hands-on approach.

Takes years of careful experience to accurately gauge female body fat levels by feel alone.

Prior to my pioneering research, there was really very little in the medical literature on this technique — which remains true to this day 👍

WSB

Does this have anything to do with fish cheeks?

Valerie Curren

So altruistic for you to take one…or is it two, for the team 😉 😉

Alison

BMI (according to my long ago doc), in addition to what Aubergine mentioned, also does not take into account the natural body type/shape of the person being measured. My doc said two patients coukd rate equally on BMI scale, but she’d be much more concerned about the person with the apple-shape than one who is pear-shaped … ie where the fat is carried is a risk factor. Interesting …

Aubergine

Exactly right.

pgroup2

My ex-wife was skinny fat. That fat was in all the right places, if you catch my male drift. When she was eight months pregnant, she still had her waistline. Even having gained 55 pounds on her skinny fat figure.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Just saw a young mom like that. From the back, nothing. She turned sideways and I realized she was way pregnant, and about to deliver!

Valerie Curren

Several of my friends looked only like they swallowed a basketball & then got back into their pre-pregnancy clothes very soon after delivery! One of my nieces was like that too, but those good genes must have come from her mom’s side 😉 😉

Aubergine

Lol.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It was largely stupid anyway.

Cuppa Covfefe

Dr. Gourmet, a cardologist as well as a gourmet chef (heyyy, lay off that Bernaise sauce, I already have enough patients), says that hip/waist ratio is a better measure of obesity, especially considering corner cases, e.g. athletes, where a large proportion of their body mass is muscle, making them heavy, but not unhealthy…

The leftards are always looking for an out… just wish that their “out” led to outer space…

TheseTruths

It’s one tool that doctors can use, nothing more. No one is saying it’s the be-all-and-end-all. The point now is that people are calling it racist. They are destroying everything, even a simple tool that, while not definitive, can be useful.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It was being used as the be-all and end-all up until now.

One form of stupidity replaced by another, both misunderstanding/misapplying the tool.

There is of course another thing to bear in mind. PDJT must be highly conscious of security and prestige. The operating system of that plane is the same as several others types. If it has vulnerabilities that need fixing then drawing attention to the obvious “one engine” Achilleas heel of that particular one may be the better option.

Another example, and a rather stark one, of the «two is one and one is none» concept. Famously known to apply to tools* and spare parts, vehicles, storage, and other utilities.

*10 mm sockets and wrenches, being afflicted with a spontaneous teleportation syndrome, have this principle work with a higher threshold, something like ten is one and nine is none.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Not just true of tools, but even such things as sharpie markers.

Cuppa Covfefe

Somewhere there is a Datsun 280ZX with a 10mm socket in the (very long) hood… a hood which only has a couple of holes on the top (next to the windshield) and none at the bottom (where is where my socket found its (probably) final home.

That was one of my favorite socket sets, and I used that 10mm one almost daily…. grrrr…

Reminds me of Douglas Adams and his planets of ballpoint pen caps and clip-end screwdrivers… not to mention Squornshellus Zeta, where mattresses grow 🙂

Large values of two 😀

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Well, 2 + 2 = 11…in base 3. But that 11 is actually just a different way of expressing “four” (i.e., * * * *), so you aint wrong…and I notice you spelled the words out rather than writing them as numerals to wipe out ambiguity.

Wisconsin Supreme Court BANS use of absentee ballot drop boxes in big election ruling

The state of Wisconsin will no longer be able to use absentee ballot drop boxes as they did three years using COVID as an excuse.

The conservative majority of the state’s high court ruled that the boxes are illegal and that when someone delivers an absentee ballot to the clerk’s office, it must be done by the voter and not someone else.

Fifteen seconds to ready; eight out of ten into the perp at 40 yards with a Glock…..no significant collateral damage. Perp managed one additional wild shot out of a rifle while being perforated. Who the heck was the grandpa that taught him — Audie Murphy?

Aubergine

My Dad could have done it. He was a fantastic shot, and cool as a cucumber under pressure. He used to light matches with a 22 rifle from a pretty far distance.

His calm under pressure saved our lives one dark night. We were barreling down a back country road at seventy miles an hour (he loved to drive fast). Someone had stolen the stop sign where the road deadended into a crossroad, with a high embankment on the other side. The embankment appeared in the headlights, Dad locked it up, and spun us sideways. When we stopped, I looked out the passenger window, and the embankment was two feet away. That was a wild ride.

Valerie Curren

Wow!

That reminds me loosely of an “adventure” in my early marriage. We were living in my parents’ cottage in Northern Michigan & returning home from Christmas festivities at my parents’ home downstate. We had our one month old firstborn in a car-seat in the back seat & our dog in the cargo area of an old K-car station wagon we’d inherited from my grandparents. We were less than 2 miles from the cottage & hubby was driving too fast for the icy road conditions, in my opinion, which I voiced in some “helpful” wifely fashion. I encouraged him to slow down as that rear-wheel drive was starting to fishtail. He made some remark about being able to handle it when almost immediately we spun out. We were on the 2 lane highway “Old 27” & spun around to the other side of the road & ultimately ended up embedded facing South in the substantial snow-packed embankment. Oh & one of our tires blew so we were Really stuck.

It was God’s mercy that none of us were hurt as our belongings, including a new rifle Christmas present for Honey, were flung around within the vehicle. Our dog was freaked out & let fly w/ the anal glands & crawled up to the front seat in fear (clean up on aisle 3  😜 ). Also, we just “happened” to land in one of the gaps between the light poles so didn’t actually wrap the car around an obstacle, PTL!

It was about 2 in the morning & we were really stuck, in multiple ways. Thankfully along came some snowmobilers & they stopped to see if we were OK & my husband asked if they could take me & baby Nathaniel home & he either got a ride w/ another snowmobiler or walked, I can’t remember which…OK he said he got a ride w/ another snowmobiler…

So the cottage is on well water with an electric pump which we always turn off when leaving it for more than a few hours. So of course when I get there I flip the pump switch on & there is an immediate waterfall pouring out of the kitchen ceiling from a burst pipe–yikes!

So hubby woke up our neighbor guy to help him go dig the car out of the snowbank & change the tire, which took about an hour. Then he made efforts to localize the pipe burst which we thought was over the kitchen but was actually over the adjacent bathroom but the water ran over plastic sheeting before falling through the kitchen ceiling tiles. There were multiple breaks in the pipe which he put on very temporary patches before completing the repairs the next day…

Anyway it was a HUGE hassle that evolved into Serious manhood training for my (mostly) fatherless husband, who Really rose to the occasion to take care of his wife & baby in very challenging circumstances. There are still water stains on some of those ceiling tiles so there are ongoing reminders of those “adventures” whenever anyone asks the story behind those stains…

Linda

Ha ha! That’s not where I thought she was going with her rant.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Well I figured if someone was going to re-post a rant like that here, it was unlikely to be about the covid jab; that’s two years old.

Diving death and cover-up?

pgroup2

Since diving is an inherently dangerous activity, why does he think there’s anything to discover? Diving accidents happen and waivers of liability are like leaves in the fall.

scott467

If I understood correctly, Mr. Gannon said there was no oxygen in the tank, the inflatable device to use in an emergency was defective, and she had far too much weight on her body to maintain neutral buoyancy.

So when they got in the water, she went straight to the bottom (only 21 feet) and was stuck there, and drowned.

There was only 30% visibility, same as the day before, when the previous day’s dive was canceled due to low visibility.

So everyone whose dive was canceled the previous day joined the next day’s group, so there were twice as many people with the same low visibility.

The authorities sound like they’re giving him the runaround after Mr. Gannon has exhibited far more patience than I would have been able to manage.

To top it all off, apparently there is only one professional diving expert in Albania, who the prosecutor wants to question (as an expert), and nobody can find him for 10 months.

WSB

Maybe he is at the bottom of the ocean? Or two bullet suicide?

When I was in the Canadian Rockies, there was a diving accident about 6 pm at night. The guy just did not survive.

Valerie Curren

When I took Scuba in college in the ’80’s, iirc, the diver has some responsibility to check that the equipment is in some degree of working order. I wonder what Cthulhu might have to say about your points?

cthulhu

Just like you pack your own parachute, you also validate your own equipment for diving.

I don’t get the “no oxygen in the tank”. If there was no air in the tank, you’re supposed to take a couple of breaths at the surface when everything is put together to make sure all the seals are good, you have air, and everything is turned-on. OTOH, if the tank were filled with nitrogen and there was literally no oxygen in the tank, that’s flat-out murder.

When you have an underwater emergency, one of the top options is to jettison your weights. You can delay this for a moment or two while you try other things or fiddle around, but if you get to “this is taking too long” or “I’m not thinking of anything”, then you are well into “jettison your weights” territory. The only reason you are wearing weights is because you are wearing something else that is buoyant — you can be buoyant, wetsuits are buoyant, BC’s can be buoyant, even SCUBA tanks can be buoyant. Everything buoyant will end up at the surface if not weighted down (i.e. when you have jettisoned your weights).

Visibility is almost never given in percent — it’s given in distance. If you have 30-foot visibility, you should see something on the bottom at 21 feet as a distinct blob.

There are several schools of “diving experts”, but they are international. NAUI, PADI, and SSI should all be qualified to opine on dive issues.

Valerie Curren

TY for these detailed reminders. so do you think her death Might arise to murder?

Valerie Curren

Thank you Carl for this wonderful teaching. Reminding us that we can only know in part this side of the veil is such an encouragement that the journey is ongoing & the “right” answer is out there, but will only be fully revealed beyond this mortal plane. The “pressing on” will thus never end & the goal of getting to know God more and more intimately is an unfolding life-long process. The only “A+” someone can obtain is on the other side, so we can cease striving & more fully enjoy the journey towards that final destination & revelation  Blessings!

I hope that your health & strength have been fully restored, as well as that of your loved ones. Thank you for your continuing faithful ministry of love.  😇

Revelation 22 tells us that God Himself will walk among us as one of us. Here on earth, in New Jerusalem. Try and imagine that!!!

Barb Meier

This morning, I was thinking about how Obama insults his adversaries by making our traditions, laws, and people look foolish in various ways. I remembered that in some cultures, a person’s behavior can shame the entire family. That made me wonder if the core of such slurs originates from the Chinese or Asian mindset. I think Americans are fairly good at blaming individuals (not family or community) for their bad or foolish words and actions. Could these insults actually be aimed at making other cultures think poorly of the USA so that harmful actions against us will be justifiable? Time to finish sleeping.

Valerie Curren

That’s a fascinating & astute insight!

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

Thanks, Carl. I hope you are doing well.

This Bible passage has always fascinated me. I think “seeing in a mirror dimly” also alludes to the fact that we are made in God’s image, but can’t really see ourselves clearly that way until we are with Jesus in Heaven.

Aubergine

This is a good article on the culture war, but my favorite part was this quote from Aleksander Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago:

“Over a half century ago, while I was still a child, I recall hearing a number of old people offer the following explanation for the great disasters that had befallen Russia [following the Soviet revolution in 1917]: ‘Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.’ Since then I have spent well-nigh 50 years working on the history of our revolution; in the process I have read hundreds of books, collected hundreds of personal testimonies, and have already contributed eight volumes of my own toward the effort of clearing away the rubble left by that upheaval. But if I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: ‘Men have forgotten God; that’s why all this has happened.’”

And why God does not give up on us is one of my “seeing in the mirror dimly” biggest conundrums … clearly I have not yet grasped the sheer magnitude of God’s unconditional love, although I am learning more about the historical times when we have forgotten him. I am so regretful for the decades I lived without Him 🙏

Why do you regret? It was those decades that prepared you to more richly understand His value to your life now and going forward.

Think about this – if you cling to your regret, Christ’s forgiveness doesn’t apply to you.

WHAT???

That’s what His sacrifice was for – so you didn’t have to pay your sin debt. But regret is a form of you still owing your sin debt.

Also, be certain that Satan smiles whenever anyone isn’t fully set free from sin debt.

Be free, my friend.

A stroke of the obvious…
“There is No American Tradition of Limiting Ammunition Capacity” – Federal Judge Strikes Down California’s Ban on High-Capacity Magazines

A federal judge on Friday struck down California’s ban on high-capacity gun magazines.
US District Judge Roger Benitez, a George W. Bush appointee, in his ruling said, “there is no American tradition of limiting ammunition capacity.” The judge said detachable magazines “solved a problem with historic firearms: running out of ammunition and having to slowly reload a gun.”

“There have been, and there will be, times where many more than 10 rounds are needed to stop attackers,” Benitez wrote, according to CBS News. “Yet, under this statute, the State says ‘too bad.’”

The judge is absolutely correct.

California’s radical far-left Attorney General Rob Bonta immediately filed an appeal, however, the judge’s ban will remain in effect while the case is making its way through the legal system.

“We believe that the district court got this wrong,” Bonta said. “We will move quickly to correct this incredibly dangerous mistake.”
CBS News reported:

California cannot ban gun owners from having detachable magazines that hold more than 10 rounds, a federal judge ruled Friday.

The decision from U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez won’t take effect immediately. California Attorney General Rob Bonta, a Democrat, has already filed a notice to appeal the ruling. The ban is likely to remain in effect while the case is still pending.

This is the second time Benitez has struck down California’s law banning certain types of magazines. The first time he struck it down — way back in 2017 — an appeals court ended up reversing his decision.

But last year, the U.S. Supreme Court set a new standard for how to interpret the nation’s gun laws. The new standard relies more on the historical tradition of gun regulation rather than public interests, including safety.

The Supreme Court ordered the case to be heard again in light of the new standards. It’s one of three high-profile challenges to California gun laws that are getting new hearings in court. The other two cases challenge California laws banning assault-style weapons and limiting purchases of ammunition.

New-Found Emails Prove Biden White House Hid COVID Vaccine Harms from the Public

Serious question, to get past the idea that “no one ever does anything”: What could be, and should be, the next step in a just system? Who could do something about this? Would it involve Congressional hearings? Would it be the job of the Justice Department (again, yes, we know this current one will do nothing)? How should such crimes be investigated? (I would not object to Nuremberg II with the resulting punishment for the guilty.)

scott467

I would guess that because the AG is a political appointee and biased in favor of the Puppetent, that a Special Prosecutor would be appointed, if American Pravda did their actual job instead of defending and providing cover for the criminal cartel committing the genocide.

Then they will claim that the Puppetent can’t be prosecuted while he is in office, so an Impeachment to remove him would be necessary, while the Special Prosecutor investigated the Puppetent and everyone else who facilitated the genocide.

But we don’t have rule of law, we don’t have checks and balances, we don’t have an adversarial system, we don’t have a two party system, so nothing will happen, until or unless DJT is back in power, which of course is exactly why the criminal cartel will do absolutely anything to prevent that outcome.

WATCH The Stunning First 9 Minutes Of Kristen Welker’s Trump Interview That Were Edited Out Of Meet the Press
A bit of what was said:

FMR. PRES. DONALD TRUMP: The election was rigged. There’s no question about that. There’s so much proof on it. Even if you go to the more modern-day proof with the — they call it Twitter Files, FBI and Twitter, or you take a look at the Amazon stuff or the Google stuff, or you take a look at “2,000 Mules,” you take a look at all of the ballot stuffing that’s on tape, you take a look at the fact that the legislatures didn’t approve a lot of the things that were done in the elections, and they had to approve. And we could go on forever. We could go on forever. But, but no. I want somebody that’s going to be strong, respected, tough, and fair.

KRISTEN WELKER: Just to go back to a couple of the points you said, the ballot stuffing. That’s something that’s been debunked.

FMR. PRES. DONALD TRUMP: It hasn’t been debunked. It’s on camera.

KRISTEN WELKER: As you know, let’s — But I do want to keep moving forward.

FMR. PRES. DONALD TRUMP: Yeah, but, Kristen, it’s on camera. Hundreds — even thousands and thousands of people. You take a look. True the Vote. Take a look. It’s on camera. They have thousands of —

KRISTEN WELKER: But Mr. President, you know Republican officials and top law enforcement officials, they have told you that that’s debunked.

FMR. PRES. DONALD TRUMP: I know, but, Kristen, you can’t say — They have thousands of pictures of people — I know you have to say that for your network, but you shouldn’t say it, because that’s the problem.

KRISTEN WELKER: But, Mr. President–

FMR. PRES. DONALD TRUMP: The news has lost such power.

KRISTEN WELKER: Let’s stay on track, though, Mr. President. Let’s stay on track with these questions —

FMR. PRES. DONALD TRUMP: No, but you’re saying– It hasn’t. We have thousands of essentially motion pictures of people stuffing the ballot boxes. Tens of thousands.

Exactly why Russell Brand got cancelled.

“The pandemic created at least 40 new Big Pharma billionaires; pharmaceutical corporations like Moderna and Pfizer made $1,000 in profit every second from the Covid-19 vaccines; more than two-thirds of Congress received campaign funding from pharmaceutical companies in the 2020 election; Pfizer Chairman Albert Bourla told Time magazine in July 202 that his company was developing a Covid vaccine for the good of humanity, not for money, and of course Pfizer made a $100 billion dollars in profit in 2022.”

Maher, desperately trying to get a word in edgewise on his own show, reminded Brand that “a lot of people would be dead without the vaccine.”

To which Brand snapped back: “If you have an economic system in which pharmaceutical companies benefit hugely from medical emergencies, where the military industrial complex benefits from war, where energy companies benefit from energy crisis, you are going to generate states of permanent crisis where the interests of ordinary people separate from the interests of the elite.”

Many of the obtained documents were redacted, but enough information was recoverable to indicate that the CDC, FDA, and others in the federal government knew about the dangers of these “vaccines” in May, 2021. Instead of informing the American public, the government instead wrote up a “script” that would promote the use of the “vaccines.”

Authored by Urs Gehriger via WeltWoche.ch,

“They’re all afraid”
Tucker Carlson is unstoppable. Since his sudden departure from Fox News he scores record viewer ratings. In an exclusive interview with Weltwoche, the political media star demolishes the mainstream media’s manipulation machine, reveals his concerns about a potential Donald Trump Restoration, he speaks about the disturbing state of the Biden family and discusses what’s next for him in a Post-Fox News Order.

https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/our-system-collapsing-real-time-tucker-carlson-gives-bombshell-interview

TheseTruths

I’m reading the transcript. A couple of things that have stood out to me:

I was reminded that “Pedo Peter” was a name Hunter gave his father in his contact list, not just a term that detractors have come up with.

Also, I don’t get the impression that Tucker is on board the Trump train. IMO he throws Trump under the bus by his effusive praise for Mohamed bin Zayed, the president of United Arab Ermirates.

Carlson pronounces the sheikh “the most interesting, wisest leader I’ve ever spoken to” — a provocative assessment given that the talk show host sat across from Donald J. Trump last month. Of the Arab leader, Carlson enthuses, “I’ve never met a more humble leader, ever — and I believe humility is a prerequisite for wisdom.”

Then later, Tucker says this:

Do I think if Trump were to take over, tomorrow, that he would make the CIA accountable to voters? No, I don’t. Do I think he’d build a wall? I don’t know. I hope so.

I know that you cannot allow, you absolutely cannot allow a political party to use our system of justice to imprison the president’s chief opponent. You can’t do that. That’s just absolutely not allowed.

Why wouldn’t Tucker think he would build a wall when he did it before? I’m wondering if Tucker completely understands Trump. I will be watching to see what he says in the future.

From OT (boldface mine):

Washington Post/ABC Poll Shows President Trump With 10 Point Lead Over Joe Biden
September 24, 2023

“At a lengthy dinner last night, this was part of the conversation. In my remarks I shared that Donald Trump had gained approximately 20% more support amid the average voting base for 2024 than he retained in 2020. This puts the margin of voter fraud needed to defeat Trump in 2024 at a level that cannot be achieved.

This visible scale of support is also one of the baseline datapoints explaining why Barack Obama is slowly exiting from the Biden influence operation. Obama knows when to exit and avoid the collateral damage.”

_______________

Good to see increased support for DJT, but don’t kid yourself that there is any margin beyond which the criminals who stand to lose their freedom and their lives won’t cheat and steal the election anyway.

Because WHO is going to stop them?

That is the question that needs to be answered, otherwise it doesn’t matter if Trump is polling with 100% support across all demographics and party lines.

.

As for the Magic Kenyan, why would he be throwing in the towel with more than a year to go?

A demolition expert like Hussein can do all kinds of damage to the Republic between now and then.
