And, of course, the obligatory George Carlin:

Per the Boss:

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

Fellow tree dweller, the late Wheatie, gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone

Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.

Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there. The “Rescue Thread” is also over there. In the event a rendezvous of the tree is needed, please check it out, as well as the newest rescue venue.

Auntie DePat’s requests:

If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.

The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.

Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.

One other vital note:

Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.

ROMANS 13:8-10

8Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law. 9The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not kill, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this sentence, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another.

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Proposition HH down in flames. Our taxing and spending limits are safe for another year.

Even Denver county didn’t vote for it (though Boulder county did).

A major black eye for the overt leftist party. Apparently even the national Yellow Stream Media has been watching this one.

Bonus news, apparently at least in my county (El Paso, which has a running contest with Denver county for most populous in the state) school board elections went overwhelmingly conservative. This is tiny in the short run and huge in the long run.

cthulhu

Yay! We takes our winnin’s when we gets ’em!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

In the past school board elections have been considered the lowest of the low (above dogcatcher, but we don’t elect dogcatchers here). That has been a YUGE mistake, of course, because those “small” offices exert enormous leverage on the future…which is pretty much what I was trying to say in my clumsy way.

The fact that people are paying attention to them now, where before they blew them off (and it doesn’t help it’s an off year election here–literally no state or federal offices up) and that too is a good long term trend. So long as we keep at it and don’t become complacent.

Gail Combs

North Carolina is even WORSE the school board elections are on off years IN SEPTEMBER!!!

Direct cut and paste from the Colorado Springs Gazette:

Conservative school board candidates dominate early election returns in El Paso County’s largest districts

  • Updated 20 min ago

School board candidates in the Pikes Peak region’s biggest districts were sharply divided over a number of hot-button issues two years ago, including critical race theory and COVID-19 protocols.

That’s Awesome news & hopefully will be a catching on trend!!! Congrats 🙂

the Vote Yes ! ads were outright lies. (Issue One/abortion)

and the mumbo-jumbo language was so confusing, easily misinterpreted esp if a person failed to read it all ,to the bitter end.

but a big turn out in the major cities which are all Blue….+ huge propaganda efforts

and when you change Americans, you’ll change America.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Yes. Everything I’ve seen here has been spinning 1 as “merely” an abortion access amendment.

If it is perceived as such it will pass because the overwhelming majority of Americans are not in favor of a total ban. (Nor are they in favor of no restrictions at all.)

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. Ohio went down in flame on Issue 1.

This thing that DP posted is quite interesting, and explains a lot.

The four Repubnicans who voted no on the Tlaib Censure motion:

  • Rep. Ken Buck of Colorado
  • Rep. John Duarte of California
  • Rep. Thomas Massie of Kentucky

What a piece of iguana shit I have for a congressman.

It’s primary season.  🙁 

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Buck has self-primaried; he’s quitting.

pgroup2

That saves us some effort, which we can use against the others.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Yeah but I had fantasies of sneaking into his victory party then laughing maniacally in his face when he lost. Not insults, not profanity…but ridicule.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

And I just had a thought.

RINOs normally doggedly cling on. Either he must be absolutely confident he’d be annihilated in the primary despite all the advantages he has from being an incumbent…

Or he’s sincere but genuinely frustrated by the insistence of most Republicans that 2020 and 2022 were stolen. In other words, he might just be red-pill-deficient.

It honestly doesn’t matter to me which one is the case. He’s an impediment and needs a size 12 golf cleat up his ass.

Aubergine

I read your post last night about my congress-critter Zinke voting no. I decided not to wait until this morning, and left a scathing voice mail. Maybe he got a lot of them, because he is not in the “no” column above.

I think it is SO important to let these people here from us.

Gail Combs

You are an example of Why I just called that Black Pill Article Bull Schiff. A Rino is better than a straight up Commie since he can be shamed into doing the correct thing, at least sometime.

TradeBait2

Yes. I wish people would get this. Primary them out if you can. If you cannot, vote them in instead of ANY communist also known as a Democrat.

Pick your battles.

Luckily my encounters with both types of camelids so far has been good. They are NOT known for ‘sweet tempers’ and the camel can carry upt to 400 to 500 lbs and stands 6 ft 6 in high.

That looks like a llama. Besides, there’s no hump so it sort of misses the whole point.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

They are fairly close relatives of camels.

Which does not make them camels.

I gave up on finding *clean* high-res eagle pictures, where I wouldn’t have the dot cover something i didn’t want covered. (But now the dot is gone.) Most internet pics are astonishingly bad when blown up as big as this site’s banner. One of the ones I do use, in fact, is one BakoCarl extended so it would be wide enough, without the eagle being centered.

I could probably find new material now.

I noted at several times in the past the camel pictures were just awful quality; clearly you had to scrape the bottom of the barrel more than once.

Many times a common spelling error corresponds with actual pronunciation.

But I’ve never heard “Semitic” pronounced as though it had an E in place of the I. It’s always the I as in bit.

I admit having a dem be elected governor in KY doesn’t sound good.

Was this republican particularly bad?

It’s a re-election on KY gov — he was selected before and he’s been selected again, no actual votes needed.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Oh. I misread the headline. I thought the incumbent was the Republican and he had been tossed.

cthulhu
Aubergine

I keep reading that he is popular there. Montana had a “popular” Democrat governor a few years back. I never understood it, but even Repuke friends of mine liked him. It happens.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Governor Lame (commonly misspelled “Lamm”) was inexplicably popular here. Even hanging “Governor Gloom” on him didn’t work.

Which just happened to remind me of one of those Hollywood stories.

Big scriptwriting conference…..as usual, gets into a big clusterfark with egos in the way. Bottle of Listerine (a prop) on the table — one writer reaches over, unscrews the cap, and chugs half the bottle. Bunch of people boggle. Some start to gag. Several run out of the room…..

The writer who drank it had previously dumped the bottle down the drain, rinsed it a couple of times, and refilled it with apple juice. And, now that he had everyone’s attention…..

scott467

So now Listerine dangerous to use as mouth wash?

Is anyone keeping a list?

Listerine is just a mix of Essential Oils – Thymol, Menthol, Eucalyptol, Methyl Salicylate (wintergreen)

Cuppa Covfefe

It’s also said to be good against COVID… as part of a multi-component regimen…

Gail Combs

It also contains alcohol (26.9%)

Gail Combs

Alcohol used to be the only good way to clean and ‘sanitize’ wounds. It is used in deodorants because it KILLS BACTERIA.

I actually never thought people were NOT aware of Alcohol’s use as an anti-septic.

(All those westerns where the guy is held down while they poured a bottle of whiskey into his gunshot wound before removing the bullet…)

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Usually portrayed as an anesthetic…not a terribly good one.

Cuppa Covfefe

Maybe something like this? 😆
(With Foster and Dean, alcohol is sure to be involved hic  🍸  )
(and notice how they surprise each other when Foster comes up from the bar)…

Aubergine

Be careful about what kind of propaganda this might be:

“Researchers at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine have found evidence that two types of mouthwash disrupt the COVID-19 virus under laboratory conditions, preventing it from replicating in a human cell.

The study, published in the journal Pathogens, found that Listerine and the prescription mouthwash Chlorhexidine disrupted the virus within seconds after being diluted to concentrations that would mimic actual use. Further studies are needed to test real-life efficacy in humans.”

https://www.rutgers.edu/news/certain-mouthwashes-might-stop-covid-19-virus-transmission

If they are getting ready to release another virus, then this might be one of their tactics to kill us.

para59r

Agreed. Likely tactic to demonize products that can be beneficial to fighting things that may harm us, like harmful bacteria. Listerine has been around for ages without complaint unless you haven’t been using it after which one is kindly asked to use it.

TradeBait2

I began using Listerine over 40 years ago after talking with my grandmother, who used it during her life. It has kept my gums healthy as well as killing respiratory disease related bacteria.

I will not be stopping.

Aubergine

Good for you!

GA/FL

Listerine is essential oils – and does indeed kill covid. Another new mouthwash Crest Intense with cetylpyridium chloride also kills covid. Several poor countries used these mouthwashes as a way to fight the pandemic and it worked. Other poor districts in India handed out free packets of HCQ-zinc and D3 and successfully defeated the coronavirus. Ivermectin was also used successfully to fight the disease.

Only in the US and Western nations did the governments and health agencies demand hospitals, doctors and patients be subjected to the damned dangerous vaccines and dangerous pharmaceuticals like Remdesivir and Paxlovid.

The penalty for murdering half a million of your countrymen for profit is swing like Mussolini time.

So I get this phone call from the GI specialist wanting me to do an appointment for a consultation. Being that I just had one on the second, and nothing much has happened since, I call back with a certain amount of skepticism.

Turns out, they want me to consult with a dietician/nutritionist. Being that I’ve “consulted” with a few over the last several decades, and none were particularly persuasive (“follow government food guidelines, wear your mask, eat the bugs….”), I don’t see any particular urgency…..but I was curious — why am I getting a call from GI?

She explained that they have specific GI dieticians, just as there are specific endocrinology dieticians, and oncology dieticians, and pediatric dieticians. I had a form in front of me that had a list of departments with phone numbers, so I said, “I bet they all wish they were palliative care dieticians — ‘have a great big juicy steak….and, while you’re at it, wash it down with a glass of whiskey! What’s it gonna do, kill you?'”

Her response was a stifled squeak of a laugh — I don’t think she’s allowed to think that way on company time.

I’m not feeling like I should be in any great hurry to close the loop on this, but I boosted it into 2024 and will deal with it then.

Gail Combs

We lived next to a hospital dietician in the 1950s. She weighed about 350 lbs…

I rather do my own research!

Aubergine

It’s kind of hilarious in a sick way, but I’ve personally never met a healthy-looking dietician, and I used to work in a hospital!

They are all at least chubby, pasty-looking, and usually have bad skin and crispy hair. Very unhealthy looking. It’s weird.

Gail Combs

TOO much Carbs. The hospital diet is often to put or keep weight on sick people. (My guess.)

Aubergine

Once I realized that the way you fatten an animal for slaughter pretty much lined up with the food pyramid, I understood it was bullshit.

Recently was sent to a nice GI guy and told to come back another time when something more wrong was occuring (clean enough bill of health, my regular doctor must be a worry wort 😁 but at least he never bothered me about the dang shot.). Noted the property was expensive and the services offered were many and part of a network. So this may be nothing more than the extension of a marketing campaign to make moar money! 😮😬🙄🤔🙂

kalbokalbs

Email, text and US mail have increased from BCBS – blue cross Blue Shield, seemingly pushing stuff to do.

As you posted, maor money, is the goal.

eilert

Even if Blaze is unbiased, do they have the manpower to watch the 40000hrs and analyze it.

Why not let Annons do that. There are millions, which solves the manpower problem, and they can check each other as well.
Hopefully Blaze is willing and allowed to do just that.

scott467

There is always a controlled choke-point, some intermediary between the criminals’ so-called ‘release’ of information and the public.

Why.

cthulhu

They should dump it all on Wikileaks.

Gail Combs

Glen Beck can do what Naomi Wolf did. go on Bannon’s War Room and RECRUIT! But wait until AFTER he gets all the tapes IN HIS PHYSICAL CONTROL.

Naomi was surprised by the number of very well qualified expert recruits she got.

para59r

The recruit thing would certainly be beneficial. The Jan 6 Committee To Deceive the Public curated the tapes to show the bad side of things and so in the same way the tapes will have to be curated in such a way as to tell the real story which is not just X happened (mass dump to the public) but X happened because of Y and maybe Z, S, T, and V. A mass dump will likely not reveal easily Z, S, T and V and thus must be investigated first to get the story framed as to why events unfolded the way they did. To do less is allow confusion and ambiguity to enter the picture.

McCarthy should have spearheaded this long ago after getting access to the tapes. Is he a limited thinker assuming it was too much for Congressional Staffers to handle. Musk did not fall under that spell. He went straight to people he could trust to ferret out the truth independent to his own views. McCarthy should of done the same after Musk wrote the temp plate.

Johnson at least does not find himself constrained and picking Cheeto Face is fine as long as he does not try to make the tapes one of his collectibles (priority ownership). He should go and recruit from public expert diggers as suggested for the best results, following the Musk model.

We don’t need to hear “My people” out of Cheeto Face unless it is in context of finding the right independent diggers, being given independents access to all the tapes to ferret out the truth. If we hear “My people” from him out of that context, then the process will have been sullied and product will be worthless to the public at large. This includes vetting the product. The diggers produce the product and the public should be the ones to vet it with the information presented.

TheseTruths

Perhaps “Cheete Face” needs to hear from us. 🤔

kalbokalbs

No, on the latter.

Feds will have strings, on what can be released.

The strings are Never referred to in public. A Secret, doncha know. .

Aubergine

No. The Blaze is headed by Glenn Beck, who is Mormon. The Mormons are controlled by the C-EYE-A.

At least, that’s my take.

kalbokalbs

Dumping it all out there Will expose Feds inciting MAGA folks.

Facial recognition expose the real problems on J6.

Precisely why it will never happen. Damn well SHOULD happen.

Corrupt Feds, protecting Corrupt feds. <<< A Cancer on America.

So, one of my big things today was meeting with our HVAC guy.

We moved our HVAC unit into our attic a number of years ago (when we moved the water-heater into the garage and re-roofed the house). All AC units tend to condense moisture out of the air as they cool it (which is why there’s a wet spot under your car AC when you park it on a hot day). In an attic-mounted system, the primary condensation drain quietly runs down into a hole full of drain rock — and there is an overflow drain that has to pass in front of a door or window to get your attention. The overflow from that overflow is dumping water into your attic which can lead to water inside your walls or dwelling spaces, which is very bad…….so you want to deal with drainage when you see the overflow.

I had assumed that the clog/problem was in the long almost-flat primary drain line out to the drain pit, and had come-up with a scheme to enable me to service this myself in the future. Unfortunately, that wasn’t it — it was actually in the “trap” before the drain line. Our guy made short work of the problem and we’re good.

While he was here, I told him about the US Senator’s aide who arranged for the Senator to do an event at the Indian village where he had grown up. He made all the arrangements, and at the appointed time they drove out in a big black limousine.

The aide hustled the Senator to give a speech to the assembled Elders of the tribe. “My friends,” he began — and the Elders said, “Umgawa, umgawa” in response and to each other. “The United States is an eternal friend to this tribe…..” “Umgawa, umgawa.” “We have Federal projects that will enrich the economy of this region…..” “Umgawa, umgawa.” “Peace and Honor….” “Umgawa, umgawa.” “Working together to a brighter future…..” “Umgawa, umgawa.”

The Senator was pleased at the way things were going so far, so when the aide suggested that they walk through the village, he was enthusiastic. At every dwelling, the aide talked about the inhabitants and the challenges they faced. Coming to the end of the village, the aide pointed out that they could completely retrace their steps or take a shortcut back to the car through a pasture. He assured the Senator that it was perfectly safe because the bulls were off at a livestock show — “you just have to be careful not to step in the umgawa.”

That should be funny but it’s just another sad truth.

This from the Badlands brief. triggered a thought

“…As I’ve said many times, the Trial(s) of Donald Trump isn’t interfering with his campaign. It IS his campaign.” —  Burning Bright…”

….

Trump’s first campaign had a theme — 𝔽𝔸𝕂𝔼 ℕ𝔼𝕎𝕊!

This theme has essentially DESTROYED the CIA/Bankster controlled media’s hold on the mind of the population.

The ‘theme’ of the 2020 campaign — 𝕋ℍ𝔼 𝔼𝕃𝔼ℂ𝕋𝕀𝕆ℕ𝕊 𝔸ℝ𝔼 ℝ𝕀𝔾𝔾𝔼𝔻! AND RIGGED ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.

This theme has focused people on FIXING our election system.

So what is the theme/target of this election?

Burning Bright & Ash in America both make comments about the Middle East Mess in the Badlands Brief. Again, there comments trigger a thought. Burning Bright calls it ‘narrative whiplash’ (Think OPERATION WARP SPEED 🤓)

We have flipped from the Ukraine to the Middle East so fast Normie heads are spinning and the Leftists are not sure which side THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO SUPPORT THIS TIME with their virtue signalling.

What if the ‘white hats’were aware of the PLANNED attack by HAMAS (we KNOW they were) and KNEW a few years in advance? (Think all that cash shipped by OH!Bummer and Kerry’s meetings… )

What if Putin’s Attack on the Ukraine and the LONG drawn out war, was part of the planned ‘wake-up’ AND TIMED to interfere with the Middle East Mess?

…..

“I believe the tension assailing the Collective Mind is a feature of ‘The Plan,’ not a bug.

If you’re able to leave your emotional reaction to the side and view the Net Effects of the current zeitgeist, the War of Stories is beginning to break through Cognitive Dissonance walls that have stood for years, if not longer.

Consider what we’re watching:

  • American Conservatives are being reminded of how quickly and easily they were led into the original Forever War in the Middle East due to emotional, NeoCon calls for war.
  • American Liberals are being called anti-semites by their own MSM, Establishment overlords for supporting the Palestinian side of the most contentious sociopolitical and even religious divide in the world.
  • Both sides are being shown a Narrative Convergence and the resultant Narrative Whiplash of the Ukrainian Proxy War running out of steam as the Uniparty attempts to replace it.

And Trump is being framed as both the Truth-Teller and the Peacemaker in waiting.” —

I forgot to add that Putin DID not go into Ukraine to ‘win a war’ He went in to De-Nazifiy AND DESTROY CIA BASES. We also heard snippets that a lot of the NON-NAZI Ukrainian soldiers surrendered to Russia.

There is a stark contrast between the Hamas attack and Putin’s surgical precision.

Yes, very much so.

We have to remember the Globalist Elite consider us CHATEL — > Cattle, so they really do not care how many they have to kill to get the desired reaction. If it is bloody, nasty and inhumane? if babies are ripped apart? THEY DO NOT GIVE A SCHIFF,.After all we are talking about people who sacrifice babies to Satan and make no bones about it.

“What if the ‘white hats’ were aware of the PLANNED attack by HAMAS (we KNOW they were)..”

Please explain to me how we “KNOW” this, exactly, without supposition?

We really don’t “know” anything. We guess, based on limited information. What limits it? That much we do know. It is limited by governments, media, and three-letter agencies. But far more information is needed to “know” things. We don’t know how Hamas planned its attack, how long they planned, who the planners were, who funded it all, etc.

Maybe our idiot government knows/knew something, but maybe it didn’t. They’ve got trannies running the military! We aren’t exactly fielding our best and brightest right now. All I’m saying is, it is just as possible for incompetence to be the driver of all of this as malice. I know I’m violating my own Razor with that, but I have now seen three years of the most ridiculous government of my lifetime. The people running our country are stupid perverts.

You are forgetting OBAMA and his connections to the Muslim brotherhood Iran and The secret backstory of how Obama let Hezbollah off the hook

December 21, 2017 – In its determination to secure a nuclear deal with Iran, the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah, even as it was funneling cocaine into the United States, according to a POLITICO investigation.

Kash Patel: The Israel-Hamas War, the Defense Industrial Complex & Curbing the Deep State

“I don’t think it’s a coincidence that a month ago, 6 billion goes to Iran. And now their number one ally against the United States of America, writ large, Hamas, is doing a coordinated strike to America’s number one ally, Israel.”….

From a military standpoint, the planning, preparation, and operational preparation of the environment for an attack like this isn’t a one-off. It’s not a splinter group saying, “We’re going to fire a couple of rockets from this location and do some damage and then we’ll get some headlines.” This was an air, land, and sea invasion through various vectors originating from Hamas and Hamas-funded groups as a coordinated strike plan into Israeli territories. That doesn’t happen in a week. That is a lot of planning, but more importantly, that takes a ton of money.

Hamas is a Foreign Terrorist Organization [FTO] under United States law. What does that mean? They’re fully sanctioned…

Where do they get their money? You’re not talking a million dollars, you’re talking hundreds of millions of dollars to mobilize this kind of effort.

Like Hamas, Iran is cut off from the world funding line. They are literally funded by flying in pallets of cash to continue to operate their economy and keep their currency afloat. What happened here that I thoroughly disagreed with is that the Biden administration gave Iran $6 billion, and we got some hostages back.

Then the Biden administration lied to the world….

I’ve been away from the intelligence on this for a while since I’ve been out of government, but I’ve always thought this was their plan.

I’ve always believed they were inching closer to making that material necessary for weapons, and that is very scary. It’s an issue that doesn’t get talked about a lot, but maybe it will be now. This administration, by permitting the funding of this proxy war by Hamas into Israel, also just gave Iran a huge cash injection for their nuclear program.

This is Iran, and we know they lie to the world…

It’s not like we got a deep state overnight. This is years of degradation by people in leadership service positions who failed to do the job that they signed up to do. I had personal experience being the lead prosecutor at Main Justice for Benghazi, being the guy that found Hillary Clinton’s emails in the discovery process, not being able to run with that, and not being able to run that Benghazi prosecution the way I wanted to and get all of the foreign terrorists who killed Americans.

It became a political thing in the Obama administration, and I was in the room when Holder was making these decisions. I thought, “Maybe that’s a one-off of a really massive event.” But then fast forward, I leave the Trump Justice Department, I go to Capitol Hill, and I run Russiagate. That’s when this all solidified for me. I saw the real nature of the FBI and DOJ that I worked with. We all know what happened afterwards when I was the chief investigator exposing it all….

There are massive implications for Egypt. We don’t have time to get into all the things involved. Remember how the Muslim Brotherhood caused the fall of the presidency in Egypt? Hamas is a Muslim Brotherhood organization. What are we doing with all that? The international implications are almost never ending….

There is a lot more.

Something Is Not Right About The Israel/Hamas War

….Israel claims that the surprise element of the attacks were the result of a catastrophic failure of intelligence on the part of the Israeli intelligence apparatus. In short, Israel claims that Hamas used methods to bypass its surveillance system and thus avoid detection during a prolonged period of planning. While Israel has a robust system of cameras and internet/cellphone monitoring, it is reported that Hamas used more traditional methods of communication such as in-person meetings and the use of couriers to deliver messages, thus avoiding technology and the pitfalls of technological surveillance.

Something Doesn’t Seem Right

However, something simply doesn’t add up when it comes to the Israeli explanation. Gaza is one of the most surveilled areas of the world. The Israelis are exceptionally good at intelligence gathering and putting that intelligence to use and yet we are supposed to believe there were not enough Israeli intelligence agents on the ground in Palestinian territory to catch wind of such a monumental operation? Anyone who understands geopolitics and has been to the Middle East knows well how powerful and effective Israeli intelligence is in the region.

But, while it may be possible that Hamas did outwit the Israeli intelligence apparatus by using more rudimentary methods of communication, how do we know this now? How did we know the next day? Did Hamas announce its methods or did Israel discover it 24 hours too late? This explanation seems all too neatly sewn and all too quickly delivered to be entirely believable….

It’s not a coincidence that a month ago, $6 billion went to Iran, and now their number one ally against the United States of America, Hamas, is doing a coordinated strike on America’s number one ally, Israel. I talk about it in the book. There are no coincidences in government. At this level, there definitely are not, and I’ll always stick by that….

How did Mossad, Five Eyes, and the US Intelligence Community Fail to Catch the Hamas Attack?
Has a VIDEO

Col. John Mills joins John Fredericks to give insight into Hamas and their terrorist attack on Israel. Col. Mills also weighs in on whether American intelligence agencies were influenced to “stand down” by the Obama-Biden team.

TradeBait2

Just curious, why would any military person with even a modicum of self respect ever do anything Soetoro or Briben wanted done?

Even more curious why Mills calls the alphabets “intelligence agencies”?

Keystone cops or assassins for hire – one or the other.

Just ridicule the shiz out of them. All of them. Do nothing they want.

TheseTruths

We really don’t “know” anything. We guess, based on limited information. 

Yes, and some of the guesses are wildly improbable. Some of them are impossible, but that doesn’t stop people.

I’ll be honest, i had no hope for PA in this judicial election. When lawsuits were brought by the republicans over changes to our voting laws in 2020, the PA Supreme Court ruled in the dems favor every time. of the seven members, the dems hold a majority and they will continue to do so at all costs.
the sect of state decreed new voting rules and procedures for the 2020 election that were challenged immediately but the dem supreme court allowed them. they will find a way to retain that majority and their crooked new procedures indefinitely.
we will not regain PA thru voting.

With luck if the Jusical System gets cleaned up we will regain a Constitution Republic and fair elections that way.

Since I don’t have a wide network of new friends or groups here in SC my only place to see in real time these transplanted Leftards is the the microcosm of NextDoor site.
They whine about everything. “I heard gunshots “. “I saw coyotes” “Why are there so many golf carts” “why aren’t I seeing more masks’ “What’s wrong with building affordable housing ” “Why isn’t that dog on a leash”. On and on they bitch about a way of life that has been the norm forever with no problems.

Most of the time a few people will tell them ‘why move here if you don’t like the way it is’ but the fellow Blues will litter the thread with virtue signaling confirmation. No real thoughts other than..because it’s the “right” way to have things.
They’re here too.

Same here in east TN. We ignore them or tell them to stuff it. They leave and go back to leftistville or bother another state.

We had that problem in our PUD. At one time about half were yankee/midwest transplants who retired here. Over time we hillbillied them out. Now we have a wonderful, friendly neighborhood with only two left who have learned to shut their yaps and go with the flow.

We took control of the HOA and Board. Fixed our covenants and bylaws while improving the common areas and roads. Property values went up accordingly. That encouraged the leftists to sell out. Good folks moved in. Problem solved. Took about 10 years, but well worth it.

We also have move ins from all over who come for our lifestyle that get along with great everybody. They want to be here and be us.

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.

Collateral Damage as Consolation Prize

…This is where something does not quite add up. If Israel’s intelligence is so good that it only targets specific buildings because they have Hamas fighters inside, how come these intelligence guys did not detect and thwart the October 7 attacks? Why is their intelligence so specific now and so nonexistent then?

Similarly, if the information is so precise, why can’t they attack these groups with special forces raids, like the many raids the American military undertook in Iraq against terrorist cells?

If we are being honest, aerial bombings here function as a type of collective punishment, where imposing pain on Palestinian civilians is supposed to do two things at once. First, it appeases the Israeli public’s desire for revenge. Second, it is supposed to dissuade Hamas from further attacks because of pressure from the civilian victims of the bombings. These goals are obvious not only from the bombings’ effects, but are also evidenced by the rhetoric of the Israeli leadership. The talk of Palestinians being “animals” and “destroying Gaza” suggests a complete rejection of the IDF’s stated principle of “purity of arms.”

Terrible as the resulting deaths are, these actions may be a case of Israel making a virtue of necessity.  After their departure from Gaza in 2006, presumably many of the IDF’s intelligence contacts, informants, and other sources of human intelligence have dried up or become stale….

For the last 20 years, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been a frozen conflict. Israeli governments have had little appetite to further the two-state solution through empowering the Palestinian Authority, but there has also been no will—and likely no support—within Israel for something extreme that might cut through the Gordian Knot, such as wholesale ethnic cleaning of the Palestinians in pursuit of a one-state solution.

Instead, both sides muddle through, responding to the other side’s provocations, leading to a familiar cycle of retaliation and overreaction until both sides agree again to some kind of ceasefire. 

And this is where the information from Badlands Media is so valuable. I looked up Gaza, Israel and Gas and the Ben Gurion Canal and found this:

War and Natural Gas: Gaza’s Offshore Gas Fields.

The Suez Bottleneck: A Case for the Ben Gurion Canal

ISRAELI WAR: Facilitating Two Israeli Projects – For MoneyHelena, the Nationalist Voice

The two projects are:  

1. The Ben Gurion Canal, and

2.  A high speed rail system from tel Aviv to the shores of Gaza.  The obstacle was the Palestinians in Gaza.  Bring on the bombs and bulldozers!  Flatten Gaza in preparation for the Projects!

The Ben Gurion Canal is a revitalized concept to be a challenge to the Suez Canal owned by Egypt.  The Canal will connect the Mediterranean with the Red Sea from the port of Eilat thru Gaza.  The original route would have gone north of Gaza at a considerably higher price.  In the world of the Cabal, eliminating an entire population of Palestinian men, women and children – is simply collateral.  Just ask Hillary and Albright.

The high speed rail will increase tourism traffic exponentially and will operate parallel to the Canal.  The $14 billion ‘military aid’ the US just gave Israel is a down payment on an investment – an investment that will never return a dime to the American People paying for it.   The new military base the US is currently building in Negev, near Gaza, will house the engineers and construction base for the Canal’s excavation….

Western nations knew this was going down well before Netanyahu provoked Gaza, turned off the Iron Dome, and ignored warnings of incoming rockets.  The party in the desert was likely staged to provoke the necessary rage to support the genocide Netanyahu had already planned…. Egypt and Saudi relations have been somewhat compromised over the last few years. Most recently due to rival factions in Sudan. In addition, when Ethiopia built the Nile River dam, Egypt found its water supply severely diminished.  The Saudi’s and UAE supported Ethiopia and Ethiopia is now assisting Israel diverting water to its Canal.

Not only will Egypt suffer from diminishing water supplies, it now faces losing Suez traffic to the Israeli projects. The economy will suffer. Which is why Egypt cannot host any refugee Palestinians. The added burden will cripple their economy. Which is why Israel told Gazans to move to the southern border with Egypt – to push them into the unwanted hands.

The puzzle pieces are in place. There is no WWIII.  There is no coming nuclear holocaust.  There is only Israel manipulating the entire Middle East invoking genocide in order to facilitate making more money…

Another take: All you should know about the Israeli Ben Gurion Canal project — By
Frontier India News Network

2021-04-11

The idea of Ben Gurion canal has surfaced at a time when the Abraham Accords have radically changed the political landscape of the sensitive region. On 20th October 2020, the unthinkable happened when the Israeli state-owned Europe Asia Pipeline Company (EAPC) and the UAE-based MED-RED Land Bridge inked an arrangement to use the Eilat-Ashkelon pipeline to move oil from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean.

On 2 April 2021, Israel announced that work on the Ben Gurion Canal is expected to begin by June 2021. The initial reference to the Ben Gurion Canal was published about two years back in Hebrew language publications. As per the sources, Israel will build the canal from Eilat on the Red Sea to Mediterranean….

I am visual and like maps. so here is the visual. You can see how getting rid of the Palestinian ‘problem’ would be ‘beneficial’.

Note the jog to the right to get around GAZA. It is not very clear in this map.

Funny how NONE of this is Mainstream US News…

Gail Combs

kalbokalbs

Been in articles a few times recently.

para59r

On first question why is intel so good now. Ans. SIGINET. They are just gathering locations of electronic comms by Hamas and attacking those clusters. Raids would ignore those operating with limited use of comms as they can’t be detected by this means.

The Collective Punishment talk is a two way street. Both sides are engaged in using the civilian population of Gaza as a wedge against the other. At the same time the Gaza population is decidedly in favor of Israel’s destruction and favors Hamas whetter they’ve taken up arms or not.

The economic pursuit of the two trans projects likely holds validity, but is not out of the norm for nation states to pursue what is in their own interests. We’ve seen this since Troy was besieged by Greece. Avoiding and or controlling access to trade routes is what is at stake here and has it’s normal positive and negative effects to in both the region and world wide. Knowing this and that Israel controls the land works demonstrate that Gaza may also be used by those who oppose these developments so this argument also works both ways.

At the heart of this continues to be Islam’s, hatred of everything not yet part of the Ummah (the yet unrealized greater Islamic religious state). Islam itself is an economic tool for control of economies. All wars can be traced back to economics and the only thing that transcends that are the relations between the sexes. Indeed Mohammad’s Quran is the result of trying to regulate such relationships with his barbaric pirate brothers in the desert and the desert pirates had their way.

Gail Combs

There is another bit of Strategy in play. A much larger canal Plus a rail system puts a major crimp in China’s Belt and Road plans, or so some seem to think.

As with the Civil War and ‘slavery’ The surface issue served to the public is often as not the ACTUAL issues. (Northern economic & manufacturing dominance of the South)

Bromine, Iodine, Prostate and Breast Cancer | Musings

Elevated Bromide Levels Implicated In Every Thyroid Disease

One significant factor that is contributing to the growing rates of iodine deficiency and thyroid issues is bromine exposure and toxicity.

Iodine, vitally needed by every tissue and organ in your body, supports your thyroid function. Although many cells use iodine, your thyroid gland uses what’s available first to produce the thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4).

Bromide is an insidious additive used in many common products. Because of the sheer amount of bromide-supplemented products, exposure to this man-made additive has caused severe depletion of iodine in the human population.

Bromines are common endocrine disruptors. Classified as a chemical halide, bromine competes for the receptors in the thyroid that capture and take up iodine. In other words, bromine displaces iodine and puts you at risk for a number of health problems. Bromine also may interfere with iodine’s ability to prevent breast cancer. This problem is called the “Bromide Dominance Theory.”

BillBeakman

Good info regarding bromine. Don’t omit fluoride & Chlorine from the iodine neutralizing / halogens. All of them contribute to Thyroid & immunity issues.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Presumably the body knows how to handle chlorine, as it’s in table salt.

Fluorine? perhaps not.

Luckily we needn’t wory about astatine and tennessine.

Stop Drinking the Political Kool-Aid, America: Voting Will Not Save Us
I find this article a BLACK PILL coupled with mostly USELESS ‘advice’ Compare it to

https://www.omega4america.com/stop-voter-fraud-before-it-happens/

https://www.precinctstrategy.com/

BLACKPILL

…We’re being duped into believing that this mockery of a choice between two candidates who are equally unfit for office actually translates to having some say in how the government is run.

To the contrary, this particular con game is part of a long-running, elaborate scam to keep the Deep State in power and leave the populace deluded, distracted and incapable of demanding accountability, transparency and decency from the government and its cohorts.

Politics is entertainment.

It is a heavily scripted, tightly choreographed, star-studded, ratings-driven, mass-marketed, costly exercise in how to sell a product—in this case, a presidential candidate—to dazzled consumers who will choose image over substance almost every time….

The government as we have come to know it—corrupt, bloated and controlled by big-money corporations, lobbyists and special interest groups—will remain unchanged. And “we the people”—overtaxed, overpoliced, overburdened by big government, underrepresented by those who should speak for us and blissfully ignorant of the prison walls closing in on us—will continue to trudge along a path of misery….

USELESS ADVICE

Washington thrives on money, so stop giving them your money. Stop throwing your hard-earned dollars away on politicians and Super PACs who view you as nothing more than a means to an end. There are countless worthy grassroots organizations and nonprofits working in your community to address real needs like injustice, poverty, homelessness, etc. Support them and you’ll see change you really can believe in in your own backyard.

Politicians depend on votes, so stop giving them your vote [and help vote in communists! -gc] unless they have a proven track record of listening to their constituents, abiding by their wishes and working hard to earn and keep their trust….

It takes a citizenry that is informed about the issues, educated about how the government operates, and willing to make the sacrifices necessary to stay involved, whether that means forgoing Monday night football in order to attend a city council meeting or risking arrest by picketing in front of a politician’s office. [spoken like a true leftist! Protests by the Right are USELESS. Phone calls, emails, faxes, delegations with REAL signatures… MIGHT work. -GC]

It takes a citizenry willing to do more than grouse and complain. We must act—and act responsibly—keeping in mind that the duties of citizenship extend beyond the act of voting.

“…so stop giving them your money. Stop throwing your hard-earned dollars away on politicians and Super PACs…”

I have a bit of a problem with that. IF Politicians ONLY get Big Business money such as Arabella Advisors: then that is who they serve.

“…There are countless worthy grassroots organizations and nonprofits working in your community…”

As most of us have found out, LEFTISTS LOVE TO TAKE OVER grassroots organizations and nonprofits. Heck I have a leftest friend doing it right now to a fledgling organization.

From my very old notes:
…In brief Maurice Strong worked in Saudi Arabia for a Rockefeller company, Caltex, in 1953. He left Caltex in 1954 to worked at high levels in banking and oil. By 1971, he served as a trustee for the Rockefeller Foundation, and in 1972 was Secretary-General of the U.N. Conference on the Human Environment. He was Co-founder of the WWF and Senior Advisor to the World Bank and the UN.

Strong’s early work with YMCA international “…may have been the genesis of Strong’s realization that NGOs (non-government organizations) provide an excellent way to use NGOs to couple the money from philanthropists and business with the objectives of government.” http://sovereignty.net/p/sd/strong.html

Very few of even the larger international NGOs are operationally democratic, in the sense that members elect officers or direct policy on particular issues,”</b> notes Peter Spiro. “Arguably it is more often money than membership that determines influence, and money more often represents the support of centralized elites, such as major foundations, than of the grass roots.” The CGG [Commission on Global Governance] has benefited substantially from the largesse of the MacArthur, Carnegie, and Ford Foundations…. http://www.afn.org/~govern/strong.html
NGOs REPLACE VOTERS in USA

By Presidential Executive Order the USA was divided into ten regions. These regions are governed by an unholy mix of unelected government bureaucrats and NGOs. The regions were set up by President Nixon but the implementation of the “regional governance concept began in earnest with the Clinton-Gore administration. “On the heels of the President’s Council on Sustainable Development , came the President’s Community Empowerment Board, chaired by Vice President Al Gore,” – LINK These quasi-governmental regional authorities are slowly transforming the US from representative government to government by United Nations and foundation sponsored and directed NGOs and appointed bureaucrats.

SCIENTIFIC STUDY Says World’s Stocks Controlled by Select Few

A recent analysis of the 2007 financial markets of 48 countries has revealed that the world’s finances are in the hands of just a few mutual funds, banks, and corporations. This is the first clear picture of the global concentration of financial power, and point out the worldwide financial system’s vulnerability as it stood on the brink of the current economic crisis…

The most pared-down backbones exist in Anglo-Saxon countries, including the U.S., Australia, and the U.K. Paradoxically; these same countries are considered by economists to have the most widely-held stocks in the world, with ownership of companies tending to be spread out among many investors. But while each American company may link to many owners, Glattfelder and Battiston’s analysis found that the owners varied little from stock to stock, meaning that comparatively few hands are holding the reins of the entire market http://www.insidescience.org/research/study_says_world_s_stocks_controlled_by_select_few

POTUS Trump has PROVED he is FIT FOR OFFICE!

Yes he is proven himself not perfect but neither am I.

He is a heck of a lot better president than anything else I have seen in my adult life.

He rounded up and jailed violent gang members in huge numbers.

This is well worth the read. It is by Martin Armstron and very short.

Central Bank & The Taking of Assets?
This is one of the comments.

We have to be concerned that there really is no rule of law that will protect you in a crisis.

The laws have been deliberately re-written to assure that you will get nothing.

For the past 25 years, the global financial cartels have been re-writing the laws under which they operate…

The principal thrust of their operations is to steal everything you have. You no longer fully own your stocks. No such thing as a piece of paper, it is all digital. And for the past twenty years, the following improvements have been made to everything in your portfolio, and that of any pensions, government or otherwise. If the fund that holds your stocks fails, you don’t get anything. Their creditors get it all. Webb explains:

  :wpds_arrow: “Essentially all securities “owned” by the public in custodial accounts, pension plans and investment funds are now encumbered as collateral underpinning the derivatives complex, which is so large that there is not enough of anything in the world to back it.

  :wpds_shock: 

“It is now assured that in the implosion of “The Everything Bubble” collateral will be swept up on a vast scale. The plumbing to do this is in place. Legal certainty has been established that the collateral can be taken immediately and without judicial review, by entities described in court documents as “the protected class”. Even sophisticated professional investors, who were assured that their securities are “segregated” will not be protected.”

Ownership of securities as property has been replaced with a new legal construct of a “security entitlement”, which is a contractual claim assuring a very weak position of the account provider becomes insolvent.”

In case you’re confused, you are not a ‘secured creditor’. You can read the rest here, including every national and international law and treaty that has been written and accepted and entered into law.

In other words, when the Globalist Elite Collapse the System — YOU GET NOTHING and THEY, the BANKSTERS GET EVERYTHING…

Well, … that’s damn depressing.

I guess this is an argument for never borrowing with collateral (if you can’t just not borrow at all).

I sure hope you are correct. However FIRST we have to KNOW WHO THEY ACTUALLY ARE!

If palestinians wanted peace, they would already have it:

“In 2005, Palestinian Arabs were given autonomy over the Gaza Strip for the first time in their history. To make it happen, the Israeli government forcibly removed thousands of Israelis from the area. Without military protection, Jews would be murdered by Palestinians, who prefer their land Judenfrei.

As Jews were being evicted from their homes, some began to dismantle the farms and hothouses they’d built, reluctant to hand over years of hard work. In the name of peace, however, American Jewish donors purchased the 3,000 remaining greenhouses that stood over 1,000 acres for $14 million and gave it to the Palestinian Authority, gratis. A large portion of the donations were earmarked for “crucial equipment like computerized irrigation systems” and other modern farming systems for Palestinians.

As soon as the Jews were gone, mobs of Palestinians showed up and broke windows, stole irrigation hoses, water pumps, and everything else they could get their hands on, destroying everything they could, as “police” stood by and watched. This happened before Hamas came to power. Before any blockades.”

What people who think a “two-state solution” is possible, or that somehow hamas is to blame for the problems of palestinians are discounting is islam. islam calls for the murder of ALL Jews. Period, end of sentence. This is because the Jews were originally commanded by God to wipe out all the people in the land He gave them, and they failed to do it. When mo-ham-head arose, he knew this history, and his writings were in response to it, whether that is specifically written or not. The religion of pieces and Judaism are mortal enemies, and always have been.

Many secularist people are inclined to discount the Bible as history, but it is. It took me many years to figure that out. But that history got us to where we are right now, watching this conflict between religions. Because that is what it is. This is not a conflict between nations, whatever they call themselves. This goes all the way back to the sons of Noah.

Give the Mo-Ham-Headans an inch, and they’ll take a mile. And they persist, and persist, and persist, until they wear the other person down, who finally, grudgingly acquiesces to whatever the Mozzie has been pestering them about…

I’ve seen it in action, and used (abused) against family members.
