2023·11·11 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

Speaker Johnson
Pinging you on January 6 Tapes

Just a friendly reminder Speaker Johnson. You’re doing some good things–or at least trying in the case of the budget–but this is the most important thing out there not yet definitively addressed.

We have American patriots being held without bail and without trial, and the tapes almost certainly contain exculpatory evidence. (And if they don’t, and we’re all just yelling in an echo chamber over here, we need to know that too. And there’s only one way to know.)

Either we have a weaponized, corrupt government or we have a lot of internet charlatans. Let’s expose whatever it is. (I’m betting it’s the corrupt weaponized government, but if I am wrong, I’d like to see proof.)

Armistice Day

November 11th was Armistice Day before we broadened it to be a day about all veterans, regardless of which war they fought in, or even whether they did their jobs the best way possible and kept us out of wars.

November 11, 1918 was the end of a war that was far more horrific than any war before it…and in some ways was worse than the next one.

I watched a lengthy series of lectures on World War I, and it was striking how the narrative concentrated on all sorts of advances and retreats until about the middle of 1915. Then after that, you don’t hear about a lot of changes of tide, until 1918.

That is because the war settled down into a defensive stalemate. As long as each side had machine guns that could mow the enemy down, people either stayed in their trenches…and the front line didn’t move…or they died. By the thousands.

The tank was ultimately to change this, and poison gas also had its effects (it was so horrific that even Adolf Hitler didn’t want to use it in battle, though nothing was too bad for the Jews). But until then thousands upon thousands died…with no net result.

And when things did change, they changed a lot. The map of Europe was redrawn. Germany lost much territory; Austria lost nearly everything. The Ottoman Empire collapsed and was almost completely occupied; present day Turkey managed to assert its independence and not be largely given to Greece (1920 is regarded by them as the year they became independent). And of course the Russian Empire…one of the allies…managed to lose its part of the war earlier and lost its monarchy, becoming after over a decade of turmoil and various subject peoples enjoying independence for a while, reunited under the communists.

As it happens my grandfather fought in the war…before he emigrated to America. (He was born in one of the Allied countries.)

World War One was a shock to the European psyche. There had been a century of comparative quiet since the massive disruptions of the Napoleonic Wars, the worst anomalies being the Franco-Prussian war of the early 1870s, and the Crimean War of 1855. Europe seemed to be pretty stable, with the main hazard being the fact that Ottoman Empire was clearly dying. (It was the “sick man” of Europe.)

And then suddenly the roof fell in, and battles that made the Battle of Borodino in 1812 (itself the second most lethal one day battle in history up to that time) seem like a picnic by comparison, became regular occurrences.

World War II wasn’t as much as a shock, even if it was deadlier. Horrific war was less unexpected that time around.

Europe was determined to remember, and two results of that stick with us today. We are not the only country that has a Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Many European countries set such a thing up. I don’t know how many of them added a World War II soldier to their monuments, like we did. Or subsequent wars…like we did. And almost every country celebrated Armistice Day, November 11, complete with a moment of silence at 11 AM, the time the war ended (in this case we didn’t correct for time zones; it was 11 AM European time, and the moment of silence is always at 11 AM local time). In many countries men would wear poppies in their lapels (an allusion to Flanders Fields, where the poppies grow).

I don’t recall ever going through that moment of silence ceremony. That appears to be gone. And now it’s a moveable holiday in any case. And now it’s no longer specifically about World War I.

But, barely recognizable though it is, it’s worth keeping in mind this bit of history.

We did not have a World War I memorial on the Mall in DC until 2021–too late for any of the honorees to actually see it. It should have been a no-brainer, but people actually fought against it.

Our national monument and museum to the war is instead in Kansas City. I visited it many years ago. Just a few months prior, the last living American veteran of the war had visited the museum, and you can bet he was an honored guest!

Frank Woodruff Buckles, Feb 1, 1901 – Feb 27, 2011.

One can only imagine the thoughts going through his head as he saw all of the photographs of soldiers from every country, from events he likely remembered very vividly…and to realize that every one of those people is dead.

A Political Statement

One of my stock jokes is to say, as I head off to the bathroom or washroom or restroom, “I’m going to go make a political statement.”

It certainly seems like urinating is a good way to make a statement about the YSM, and defecating works for politicians. Or the other way around is good too, though “#1” just never seems emphatic enough.

Maybe “#1” is just being polite, and “#2” is telling the fixtures what you really think.

Anyhow, I pretty much do plan to be polite to RINOs that electioneer or fundraise. I’ll tell them, Sorry, but I need to GO Pee…

Language Warning

In the next piece I had to discuss a particular topic. Unfortunately, I couldn’t discuss it without naming it. Therefore I apologize in advance for having to do so, and apologize to anyone offended by the sight of the name.

RINO McDaniel

[Well, perfect timing for this one to pop up in the rotation again!]

RINO McDaniel continues to infest the GOP. But RINO McDaniel isn’t the problem.

Let me be crystal clear on this, RINO McDaniel is a lower-than-whale-shit, piss guzzling ratfucking shit eating traitorous rancid syphillitic cunt. Her worth as a human being is substantially less than zero, any oxygen sucked into her lungs is wasted, and it would be, no matter what job she had.

I fear I haven’t been clear enough, but that will have to suffice.

But she is not the problem…or rather, she would not be a problem were it not for others. She’d still be as I have described, but we wouldn’t know who she is and would not care, because she could do no damage. She’d just be anonymous human refuse.

No, the real problem is the fact that a majority of the 168 top GOP people voted for her. And now that has happened five times so they cannot claim they didn’t know what she was.

In spite of the fact that under her “leadership” the party has deliberately sabotaged the will of its base, has deliberately refused to challenge blatant election fraud, had gone out of its way to ensure certain candidates do not get nominated, has diverted donor money to namby-pamby candidates who have all the electoral appeal of a puddle of dog vomit…and in general has done nothing whatsoever to help fix the problems that plague America.

However that last is to be expected; I cannot expect anyone who IS the problem to help FIX the problem.

RINO McDaniel would be powerless without an entire party leadership of the same mind as her. They want this dismal performance; they want to ignore the party base.

If she were to drop dead this instant, it would solve nothing as someone just like her would be elected by those same pustulous people.

According to Charlie Kirk, about 55 people voted against her, 10-12 wanted something different but were too chickenshit to do the right thing, and roughly 100 people voted for her enthusiastically, and even had the unmitigated gall to complain to Kirk about US. Fuck ’em. Rusty 12 gauge bore brushes would be too good for these arrogant pricks and cunts.

Every single one of those hundred is just as bad as she is. In other words, they are all worse than I described at the beginning of this piece. And no doubt those people in turn have people who supported them to be state party chairs and whateveritis they call the other two people from each state and territory who were voting.

It’s time to face up to the fact that the Republican party is effectively owned by the shit-eating RINOs. We’ve got more work to do, a lot more work, to make the GOP an instrument for the restoration of the United States of America. And that’s in addition to cleaning up our elections.

There’s no point in cleaning up elections just to elect ratfucking RINOs.

OK, hopefully now you will have some inkling of my true attitude towards RINOs. Sorry that words were inadequate to give you the full picture.

The Real Fascist is His Fraudulency Joe Biden*

*Or whoever has his hand rammed up that meat puppet’s ass.

Brandon (which I will use as a term for whoever is the power behind the Porcelain Throne) has thrown down the gauntlet…but in a way where most of America will never see it. The networks didn’t carry his tirade. CNN air brushed it (or whatever you call editing the red background) for its five viewers (who aren’t trapped in airports).

Luckily for me I live in Colorado, and therefore, despite my best efforts, I probably didn’t vote for Donald Trump.

Of course, for this purpose who I actually did try to vote for will be essential, and they undoubtedly know.

Come and get us, asswipes!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3h6ZZ28QtX4

Justice Must Be Done.

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

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

Small Government?

Many times conservatives (real and fake) speak of “small government” being the goal.

This sounds good, and mostly is good, but it misses the essential point. The important thing here isn’t the size, but rather the purpose, of government. We could have a cheap, small tyranny. After all our government spends most of its revenue on payments to individuals and foreign aid, neither of which is part of the tyrannical apparatus trying to keep us locked down and censored. What parts of the government would be necessary for a tyranny? It’d be a lot smaller than what we have now. We could shrink the government and nevertheless find it more tyrannical than it is today.

No, what we want is a limited government, limited not in size, but rather in scope. Limited, that is, in what it’s allowed to do. Under current circumstances, such a government would also be much smaller, but that’s a side effect. If we were in a World War II sort of war, an existential fight against nasty dictatorships on the brink of world conquest, that would be very expensive and would require a gargantuan government, but that would be what the government should be doing. That would be a large, but still limited government, since it’d be working to protect our rights.

World War II would have been the wrong time to squawk about “small government,” but it wasn’t (and never is) a bad time to demand limited government. Today would be a better time to ask for a small government–at least the job it should be doing is small today–but it misses the essential point; we want government to not do certain things. Many of those things we don’t want it doing are expensive but many of them are quite eminently doable by a smaller government than the one we have today. Small, but still exceeding proper limits.

So be careful what you ask for. You might get it and find you asked for the wrong thing.

Political Science In Summation

It’s really just a matter of people who can’t be happy unless they control others…versus those who want to be left alone. The oldest conflict within mankind. Government is necessary, but government attracts the assholes (a highly technical term for the control freaks).

A Few Things We Cannot Blame on His Fraudulency

I am pretty sure Joe Biden had nothing whatsoever to do with the 30 Years War that ran from 1618-1648 and probably killed about a third of the people then living in what is now Germany.

Nor did he cause the collapse of either Roman empire (Western, 476 CE, Eastern 1453 CE). Nor the ignominious failure of most of the Crusades. Nor the collapse of Bronze Age civilization around 1200 BCE (including the collapse of the Minoans and the blowup of Santorini).

However, my utter lack of ability to imagine how he could possibly be responsible for these things is not a valid argument against them, so I await correction if appropriate.

His Truth?

Again we saw an instance of “It might be true for Billy, but it’s not true for Bob” logic this week.

I hear this often, and it’s usually harmless. As when it’s describing differing circumstances, not different facts. “Housing is unaffordable” can be true for one person, but not for another who makes ten times as much.

But sometimes the speaker means it literally. Something like 2+2=4 is asserted to be true for Billy but not for Bob. (And when it’s literal, it’s usually Bob saying it.) And in that sense, it’s nonsense, dangerous nonsense. There is ONE reality, and it exists independent of our desires and our perceptions. It would go on existing if we weren’t here. We exist in it. It does not exist in our heads. It’s not a personal construct, and it isn’t a social construct. If there were no society, reality would continue to be what it is, it wouldn’t vanish…which it would have to do, if it were a social construct.

Now what can change from person to person is the perception of reality. We see that all the time. And people will, of course, act on those perceptions. They will vote for Trump (or try to) if their perception is close to mine, and vote against Trump (and certainly succeed at doing so) if their perception is distant from mine (and therefore, if I do say so, wrong). I have heard people say “perception is reality” and usually, that’s what they’re trying to say–your perception of reality is, as far as you know, an accurate representation of reality, or you’d change it.

But I really wish they’d say it differently. And sometimes, to get back to Billy and Bob, the person who says they have different truths is really saying they have different perceptions of reality–different worldviews. I can’t argue with the latter. But I sure wish they’d say it better. That way I’d know that someone who blabbers about two different truths is delusional and not worth my time, at least not until he passes kindergarten-level metaphysics on his umpteenth attempt.

OK now for the fine print.

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

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

And remember Wheatie’s Rules:

1. No food fights
2. No running with scissors.
3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
4. Zeroth rule of gun safety: Don’t let the government get your guns.
5. Rule one of gun safety: The gun is always loaded.
5a. If you actually want the gun to be loaded, like because you’re checking out a bump in the night, then it’s empty.
6. Rule two of gun safety: Never point the gun at anything you’re not willing to destroy.

(Paper) Spot Prices

Kitco “Ask” prices. Last week:

Gold $1,993.20
Silver $23.31
Platinum $942.00
Palladium $1,142.00
Rhodium $4,525.00

This week, 3PM Mountain Time, markets have closed for the weekend.

Gold $1,939.70
Silver $22.36
Platinum $853.00
Palladium $990.00
Rhodium $4,600.00

WOW. An absolute hammering. Look at palladium. Down over ten percent in one week. Platinum bleeding too. Rhodium managed to eke out a net gain though lost a lot on Friday. And gold is basically on a yo-yo right now. I was visiting a coin shop and the individual I was working with expressed amazement at how volatile the markets are.

Tread cautiously if you are planning to change your position.

Infinities

No…not this.

And not this either…but it’s a little closer.

I am speaking of the mathematical concept.

There are really two variants. The one usually represented by the “lazy eight” (∞) is the end point of the number line. Which actually has no end point. It can also be thought of as the limit of 1/x, as x gets closer and closer to zero (but never quite gets there–more on that shortly). Or, when a function “increases without bound” ∞ is the symbol for that (non-existent) limit.

It’s commonly thought of as the biggest number. Unfortunately, that makes little sense when one thinks about it. It doesn’t behave like a number. If you add 1 to any number you get a different number (and the prior number clearly wasn’t the largest). Add 1 to infinity…and you get infinity.

The other concept commonly “bucketed” under the term “infinity” is more correctly termed the aleph number. Georg Cantor (1845-1918) first enunciated this concept and, apparently feeling we needed fresh meat for symbols, went to the Hebrew abjad instead of the Greek or Latin alphabets, using the symbol aleph (א).

Aleph numbers have a lot to do with set theory, they count the number of elements in infinite sets. And notice I am using the plural here. There is more than one aleph number.

The “basic” aleph number is aleph nought (or aleph zero, or aleph null), with a zero subscript:

(This is one of those things that over in Wikipoo is an embedded graphic, rather than character data.)

There are many sets of infinite size. For example, the set of all integers is infinite in size. The number of points on a line segment, is infinite in size. The set of all rational numbers (i.e., those numbers that can be expressed as the ratio of two integers)…again, infinite.

But it turns out that not all of these are the same size. Or to make noises like a mathematician, they do not have the same cardinality.

What does it mean for two infinite sets to have the same size?

Let’s consider the set of all whole numbers. 0, 1, 2, 3, etc., ad (ahem) infinitum.

And also the set of all odd whole numbers: 1, 3, 5, 7… and so on.

(One of the perennial arguments in math is whether “natural number” means 1, 2, 3… or 0, 1, 2, 3… I was taught the former but apparently that’s not a standard everyone abides by. Whole number is also ambiguous, but I was taught as seen here, 0, 1, 2, 3… Just to clear up any misunderstandings. If you are pretty sure this isn’t what you were taught…you’re probably right.)

You would think that the second set would somehow be half the size of the first. But no, not really.

The most primitive method of comparing the size of two sets is so simple in concept that it does not involve counting and checking equality. Rather, it’s to pair elements from one set with elements in the other. If you run out of one set before the other, it’s the smaller of the two sets. For example, consider {3, 17, 14} and {a, r, x, p}. Pair 3 with a, 17 with r, 14 with x and p is left over; the first set is smaller than the second.

You can pair the odd numbers with the whole numbers; every whole number, if you multiply it by two and add one to the answer, has a “mate” in the set of odd numbers. Pick any whole number, it has a mate in the other set, and the reverse is true…start with any odd whole number, subtract one, divide by two, and you have one of the whole numbers. In mathematician-speak, they map one-to-one.

So these two sets are considered to have the same cardinality, and that cardinality is called aleph-nought.

It has been shown (but don’t ask me how) that rational numbers (in other words, all fractions you can write with integers) have this same cardinality as well, and so do all algebraic numbers…numbers you can find as roots of polynomials with integer coefficients. This includes numbers like the square root of 2, the golden ratio, etc. but it does not include the transcendental numbers like e and pi.

But all real numbers, including the transcendental numbers, and points in a line segment, have a different cardinality.

Returning to aleph-nought, there’s a common misconception out there: If a set is of infinite size, it contains everything.

This is simply not true. For example the set of all even integers is clearly infinite, it just as clearly doesn’t include everything. It doesn’t include your dog. It doesn’t include your house. But more significantly and less wiseassedly (is that a word? It is now), it doesn’t include odd numbers.

OK, let’s get our feet on the ground.

I talked about infinity being the limit of 1/x as x gets closer and closer to zero…but was careful to specify you can’t set x to precisely zero. This seems like a bit of nitpicking, but there’s a very good reason you cannot divide by zero, and it’s not just to avoid infinity.

It’s fundamentally undefinable. If you can’t define it you can’t do it (not even if you’re Chuck Norris). Consider:

(Any number ) × 0 = 0

(Any number other than zero) × (Any number other than zero) = (some number other than zero).

But there’s no way to multiply a number by zero, and come up with a non-zero answer.

Division is the reverse of multiplication. If a × b = c, you can start with c and divide by b and get a. Or divide by a and get b.

But there’s no way for either a or b or both to be zero, and for c to not be zero. So there’s no reverse of this operation. Let’s say a is zero. Then c must be zero: 0 × b = 0. You can’t have a non-zero number on the right side. Since such a statement would be invalid, re-arranging it with algebra can’t give you anything valid either.

You can, however, legitimately divide by b, and have 0 = 0 / b.

But what if you divide zero by zero? That seems to be legitimate at first, because at least in converting the multiplication to a division, you’re starting out with a possible multiplication, not an impossible one. Take a look: 0 × b = 0 (legit) so b = 0/0 ought to be legit too.

The problem here is that in the original multiplication, b could be literally anything, and you end up with zero. If you try to reverse the process, you literally cannot tell what b ought to be. So 0/0 is considered undefined too.

OK, this turned out to be more “rambly” than I was hoping…and it’s nine minutes to midnight, ET. I’ll just post and hope for the best.

But one last point (which I’m adding shortly after this drops)

In physics, if the math for some theory leads to infinity or has a divide-by-zero in it, it’s called a singularity, and physicists consider that a sign that under those circumstances, we need a new theory, one that will look like the old one most of the time, but doesn’t have the singularity. This is so for black holes (that, it seems, must be of zero size and therefore of infinite density) and also for the time=zero mark under the big bang theory. No credible astrophysicist doubts that black holes exist or that the big bang happened…but these are nagging issues.

But if science had no nagging issues, it wouldn’t be science. We’ll figure these out someday…maybe a huge surprise lurks here. (Quantum mechanics came out of one such old singularity.) And then there will unimagined-by-us nagging issues to replace them.

Since Wednesday, January 20 at Noon EST, the bought-and-paid for His Fraudulency Joseph Biden has been in the White House. It’s as good as having China in the Oval Office.

Joe Biden is Asshoe

China is in the White House, because Joe Biden is in the White House, and Joe Biden is identically equal to China. China is Asshoe. Therefore, Joe Biden is Asshoe.

But of course the much more important thing to realize:

Okay, thanks.

It is cool. Are there no variables that might affect its accuracy from year to year?

TheseTruths

Good info; thanks.

TheseTruths

It made sense.👍🏼 I had an inkling that variables like that were in play but wasn’t sure how to accurately verbalize it without doing some research.

Actually, there’s a cool engineering trick hidden in there — how to make all the ellipses a trifle bigger (and the seal a mite smaller) than they need to be for one time success in order for the same effect to happen year-after-year.

Then, again, with extremely finicky and precise design that includes just the right amount of slop to make the thing work, they’re lucky the contractor didn’t install one of the service stones upside-down or backwards.

I keep forgetting that agencies like that have to abide by rules set out by Congress. They so often seem to go rogue. Thank goodness the judge did not allow them to overstep their authority.

^^^ This. illegal laws are still illegal even if enforced.

Gail Combs

We need a REAL STRICT constitutional Supreme Court to start swatting down the accumulation of unconstitutional laws and SC decisions. There are so very many, — a 100 + years worth.

Barb Meier

Let us fix this “the other way around.” Instead of needing to remove all the overreaching, unconstitutional laws individually, we could pass a “clean sweep” law. It would be very simple. Except for what is explicit in the Constitution, eliminate all laws. New laws have a 3 month expiration date. Is that too long? Your thoughts?

Barb Meier

Perhaps they left things vague so future generations could stay busy going round and causing less harm?

“Bill Maher stands up for Western Civilization.” Good rant, 6:08 long.

TheseTruths

Yes, he has the ability to look at some issues in an unbiased way.

Gail Combs

I would say the Maher is trying to do some DAMAGE CONTROL for the DemonRats.

He is trying to calm down the wigged-out JFK type democrats and con them into thinking the WOKE crap they see is NOT the TRUE FACE of the DemonRat Party.

Aubergine

When the majority of Democrats were people who thought like Maher, we had a functioning government. Neither side was always happy with it, but we didn’t have chaos.

Barack Obama’s marxist/communist/muslim ass changed all that.

Robert Baker

Maher behaves like a rational leftist (much of the time) who understands his view on political realities is a perspective and subject to correction when conflicting information is verified.

This is a picture of the master diamond cutter Joseph Asscher doing the original split of the Cullinan diamond — the largest diamond ever discovered.

comment image

I had a High School friend who nearly apprenticed to be a diamond-cutter…..he ended up as a petroleum geologist instead. One of the peculiar things about the profession — in common with surprisingly many others — is that one cannot become too enthralled by perfection.

Many people will try to get things absolutely right, taking ten hours to try to ensure that a 1% error will be a .5% error, and another twenty hours to make it a .25% error, and another forty hours to make it a .125% error, and so on…..at a certain point, you have to just whack the stupid thing with your hammer and deal with the consequences. The alternative is to forever keep chasing imaginary improvements no bigger than a butt-hair on a nit.

This leads to an interesting side-effect, where professionals tend to denigrate their work-product among themselves, particularly as it gets closer to delivery. The partner in charge of signing a financial statement at a major CPA firm will frequently say something like, “let’s push the button on this piece of crap and all go home and sleep.” Mind you, he can truthfully testify under oath that this financial statement exceeds the standards of the industry, is the product of a team of dedicated and competent professionals who have worked on it for months, and only differs from absolute perfection in ways that auditors might only perceive with difficulty if the light were right…..but he has to emotionally distance himself and his team from the work so that they can let it go.

Plaintiff’s attorneys love delving into internal records and finding this sort of statement, of course. They immediately leak them to the press and play ‘gotcha games’ in courtrooms — which is rank hypocrisy, because their internal communications are full of the same thing: “you have that stupid filing for Judge Smith ready for tomorrow’s ten o’clock?”

You can’t call something “done” and ship it out when there are still people clinging to it and trying to make it better — and, sometimes, it takes a certain amount of brutality to get people to let go.

scott467

I sure hope he knew what he was doing.

The hammer must be made out of clear diamond, I can’t even see the head on it.

I’m sure they hired the best they could.

The tool would probably be better recognized as a mallet — but I’m sure he had an assortment at his disposal. https://www.amazon.com/wood-carving-mallet/s?k=wood+carving+mallet

Oh.

So the head of the mallet probably flew off when he raised his hand, just as they snapped the photo.

If you look again you can see he is holding the cutter in one hand and striking it with something like a wooden dowel with the other.

If you have ever struck another tool with a hammer, something like a chisel, you really want to use wood or hard rubber to dampen the rebound unless you absolutely need to use steel. It also depends on what frequency you want.

Ima guess it takes some amount of force to split a diamond, based on the hardness of diamonds, and on how high Joseph raised his arm before striking it.

But it looks like he’s using a Popsicle stick, and I don’t see how a Popsicle stick has enough mass or weight to split a diamond, no matter how hard he whacked it.

cthulhu

That’s why you’re not a diamond-cutter.

The short explanation is that diamonds have natural fracture lines — if you “encourage” one just right, the diamond will split accordingly. Mapping them is a significant part of the effort.

Using a larger hammer and hitting the diamond approximately where it is weak is unlikely to properly preserve the size and character of the resulting stones.

Deplorable Patriot

I do like the cut of diamond named for him. I take it he was the one to originate it.

I just got off the phone with a relative of Gregory Yetman, the target of an FBI manhunt following an armed raid related to charges for January 6. Will have much more on what happened shortly.

In the meantime…

I am SICK of hearing the ways in which this regime is destroying the lives of decent Americans who love this country so the pettiest man ever to be president, Joe Biden, can retaliate against his detractors.

I am sick of hearing the pain in people’s voices when their loved one is described as a “terrorist,” especially people who have served this country and never been in trouble with the law.

I am sick of seeing reporters and commentators cheer this–adding to the suffering of people they don’t know or like because they supported Donald Trump.

I am sick of watching the lowlifes at DOJ and FBI brag about these cases day after day on social media.

I am sick of watching cruel judges working with sadistic line prosecutors rip apart families simply because they can.

I am sick of the silence of Republicans especially those running for president who boast about taking on the tough fights while doing nothing.

I am sick of the empty promises by Congressional Republicans who refuse to do whatever necessary to end this. Instead, 70 House members voted to build Chris Wray a shiny new headquarters he will probably name after Robert Mueller.

And I am sick of my fellow countrymen who not only endorse this but want more of it.

They planned this raid with the help of Propaganda Stream Media (PSM).
POLICE STATE:

I just spoke with Todd Yetman, brother of Gregory, the man hunted down by FBI for J6 related offenses.

The conversation was sad, infuriating, and in some instances, funny.

First, he said the FBI staked out their home for THREE MONTHS prior to the raid on Wednesday am.

(Todd, Greg, and another brother live together in the home their father built in NJ).

After Todd and his other brother left for work after 6am, Greg left the house around 7am to go to work. They all work for same company.

That’s when armed FBI agents and SWAT vehicles surrounded Greg.

“Greg walked out, froze in the face of guns drawn, and ran.”

A woman who lives with them heard the commotion. When she opened the door, she faced armed agents who told her to get on the ground. She thought they were being robbed.

About 30 armed agents stormed the house and property. They threw flashbangs inside areas of the property including the garage. This resulted in broken windows of vehicles and a boat.

“They went nutty, tore up the house, stuff scattered everywhere.”

Agents told Todd, after he returned to the house that afternoon from work, to open his gun safe. When he refused, they told him if he didn’t, they would break it open. Although not a defendant, FBI took his guns and ammo.

Todd confronted the agents, asking “who killed someone?” They treated my brother like a criminal, Todd said.

Vehicles were everywhere blocking the driveway and parked around the property. FBI and local law enforcement used helicopters, drones, and search dogs to try to track down Greg. That’s when Todd again confronted agents.

“Go get Hunter, go get Joe Biden,” Todd said. “Everyone of you is corrupt, you’re all Joe Biden’s puppets.” He demanded to know why they were not arresting Antifa and BLM.

They then asked him not to be rude, lol.

News reporters were staked out near the house the entire time. The FBI asked Todd if the media tried to interview him. He said no, but he hoped they had. “They are as corrupt as you guys.”

Law enforcement issued an emergency bulletin to neighbors to shelter in place. Even the small town’s mayor told residents Yetman was not a threat.

Greg Yetman turned himself in this morning without incident. Todd doesn’t know where his brother went the past 2 nights or where he is now.

“He would give you the shirt off his back,” Todd said. “He helps everyone.”

Greg, according to his brother, served in Afghanistan and Iraq. He also worked as a guard at Gitmo. He’s been a National Guardsman since–but he quit after refusing to take the Covid jab.

“I am sick to my stomach,” Todd said. “There will be no justice, that’s the sad thing about it. I feel bad for the country and for my kids.”

As of tonight, DOJ has not yet filed any charging documents detailing Greg’s offenses. Some reports claim Greg used pepper spray against police. Even so, this is not the normal protocol for arresting an individual accused of spraying police nearly 3 years later.

This is all about optics and juicing DOJ’s “domestic terror” data ahead of Trump’s J6 trial–Jack Smith recently admitted in a motion that the trial would prove Trump was responsible for the events of January 6. Also, this account is consistent with other accounts of FBI raids against Jan 6 protesters.

And Greg Yetman wasn’t the only American arrested this week for Jan 6. Five others have been charged including 2 women on trespassing misdemeanors.

DOJ boasted in a J6 update this week that more than 1,200 individuals have been arrested and charged over the four-hour disturbance.

US Atty Matthew Graves warned the final count could exceed 2,000.

Police state.

I might be wrong but my last reading of this incident is that Greg is being held in a local jail. I’d hope the locals would put up some kind of fuss before being forced to release him into the Feds hands.

FTA
Job growth in the private economy, the kind that creates wealth and tax revenue, was only 99,000. The government contributed 51,000 of the new jobs, second only to hiring in healthcare (58,400) by industry. This continues the trend of 50,000 new government jobs a month over the past year. Government employment is now back where it was before the pandemic in February 2020.

Fits in with Gail’s post that includes talk of the Algerian Strategy thing where in the government does absolutely nothing until everyone submits and votes their way. The fact that nothing is done about this seems to lend to that.

All I can say is that this is a big country and we are armed and own the land. When recompense comes, I hope it swamps the swamp , the cabal and all their WEF friends because overshadowing all this Algerian strategy thing along with the effort to establish a medieval feudalistic tyranny is the Depop Strategy.

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.

Unusually, Blunt Truths. Truly should GO viral.

Aubergine

I am noticing something that I “think” could be happening here on the Tree. Maybe I am having a mad, wild conspiracy moment, I don’t know.

Since Hamas attacked Israel, I have seen comments from people here that seem really contradictory. One day, a poster will appear to be Hamas sympathetic in the extreme, and the next, not at all. It is so striking, it’s as if it’s two different people writing.

Does anyone else see this?

Does anyone think it’s possible that the site could be controlled to the extent that one could not see posts being attributed to them, but only see the ones they actually wrote? Could the control extend to who sees which comments?

I know this sounds nuts. But it really seems odd, the way some of the comments go back and forth from one extreme to another.

Wolf, what do you think? Is this possible? Anybody?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Let me do this offline. In this case, I get how FIB tries to sort these things out quietly.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Exactly.

That’s part of why I’m curious, and part of the problem. Selective MITM modification of content is unlikely to be seen by all of us. The asymmetric advantage, e.g., to create disunity or influence site position, is most likely to come from small and selective provocation and influence operations.

I saw some very impressive actions by all sides in my time working on state and local electoral politics. The left in particular will make BOLD moves to try to change the playing field.

Some of the stuff left me thinking three letters of unknown content had to be involved. IMPRESSIVE.

Sometimes it stops working but only when the number of comments is much higher than it is right now.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Those posts can be distributed throughout the comments, and they can also be “de-oranged” accidentally without you seeing or noticing. Graphical interfaces are very complicated, as is the logic behind all the commenting, databasing of comments, and display of comments. And complexity is the enemy of security.

Your best bet to test that is – when there are not many posts – right after midnight – to do a head count, carefully, of new comments, watching very carefully for orange posts to “disappear” when you move your pointer near them. You can prove or disprove what YOU might be seeing.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

And bear in mind what Steve points out – that sometimes new comments simply WILL NOT show up until you do a refresh of the page.

Aubergine

They aren’t pro-Hamas exactly, as in rah-rah Hamas. It’s more like it’s not our problem, let them work it out, etc. Like they are equivalent in the fight. As if Israel should be left on its own, to sink or swim. But then later, it’s “go get ’em, Israel!”

So it’s subtle. And maybe the couple of people it is really have that wide range of opinion, or are vacillating. I can’t tell for sure.

kalbokalbs

Several perspectives here, I suppose.

  :wpds_arrow:  Can’t recall a pro Hamas post, authored by a QTreeper.

Some have posted concerns for civilians, caught up in the bombing, fighting… Fair concern. Me. Don’t much give a shit. Hamas problem is well documented AND appeasement will not alleviate the problem.

QTreepers posting stuff like dopes protesting for Hamas or other muzzies, yes.

  • Does NOT infer Hamas support, in my mind.
  • Hell, the behavior is called out, for being AFU.

Posts have suggested the unchecked movement by Israel, may lead to a larger conflict in ME. Further draw our idiot government, into a wider more robust long-term fight in ME. And, the possibility of WW III.

  • ALL valid concerns.

By all appearances, in the short-term, months, it looks to me like either ME supports Hamas getting waxed, or simply want Palestinians, to stay the fuck out of their countries.

  • Either is support for Israel. IMO.

I for one am pleased, Hamas is getting waxed, or whatever word one wants to insert. I do NOT care. <<< Long over due.

I am perfectly OK with selling Israel arms. NOT giving arms.

I also believe, this is all playing into bigger problems, Later.

In the future, Hezbolah. I don’t think Iran will unleash Hezbolah. Dunno how this my play out.

Posted a few days ago. I believe, Israel will implode, from internal bickering. IMO, Precisely what allowed October 7 to happen.

Aubergine

Yes. Your position has been pretty solid and clear to me all along.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Theoretically, what you are describing is possible, and it’s a very desirable technical capability for DHS and the “censorship industrial complex”. Facebook basically HAS this capability, and IMO uses it to “change” things.

The reason I say this is possible, is that the code would be surprisingly similar to code for people to “ignore” each other, which is fairly straightforward, and which I halfway designed for this site, at some point.

My suggestion is to contact me via Gab Chat (either version) with any examples, and let me look at them. I have my own data that can be used to dig deeper. Bear in mind the “and logic” that some cases may be nothing, but others could be real. I should probably look at several cases.

My suspicion is that it is NOT due to injected posts, but is due to people’s ambivalence on the current situation. We are seeing two sides in a titanic struggle, and both sides are deeply embedded in not just the US government, but also the Democrat party. If you think the ambivalence is bad HERE or on the right, or on this site, just imagine wokies trying to deal with their insane logic breaking down right now.

Interesting times!

Gail Combs

“…My suspicion is that it is NOT due to injected posts, but is due to people’s ambivalence on the current situation….”

If it is me, then ambivalence is the correct word.

I am trying NOT to toss all Muslims into the same pot. The question then becomes whether Gaza/Hamas is SO cancerous it MUST BE eradicated to the last toddler.

On top of that, I know that the people are the victims of the Deep State and it’s games and have been for over a century.

Also does eradicating Hamas/Palestinians set off massive repercussions (That the Deep State WANTS) down the road?

Will Saudi Arabia and others be able to keep a lid on while Israel takes care of the problem?

At the end of the day I want the USA OUT of the situation PERIOD. Also I do not think we should take sides since that plays right into the hands of the Deep State.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes. While I’m very pro-Israel and anti-Hamas, that does NOT mean that I want to get sucked into the horribly bad psychology of the moment. Worst of all, when OBAMA is running this country through his senile pedo proxy Biden.

There is so much very WEIRD co-dependence and enabling in America’s relationship with Israel right now, that to get sucked into it at all is incredibly dangerous.

The radical left, and a majority of American Jews, have EMBRACED THE SNAKE. I personally will NOT be suckered into “treating for snakebite” anybody who is “embracing the venomous snake” and refuses to let go.

Israel’s highly manipulative relationship with the United States is understandable, but it’s WRONG. Compound that with Israel sabotaging itself at every turn with leftism, vaccine / globalist nuttery, and rampant socialism, and I just say KEEP IT ALL AT ARM’S LENGTH.

Yes, Hamas must be destroyed. But that cannot happen with HUSSEIN running this country, protecting the Iran regime.

Best thing to do now is NOTHING. IMO. Let Israel heal itself. Get clarity on the situation. Get power AWAY from Hussein and the GloboNazis.

TradeBait2

Agree. We can and should defend Israel on the world stage as an ally. If they are threatened by major powers, then unfortunately we have a fight on our hands. But that does not mean we jump in every time they get into a scrape or do something stupid like the jabs.

Israel has been doing stupid stuff for thousands of years. Our response to them is scripturally provided if you are a Christian or Jew. It is different if you have a secular approach. Which is what happens here and elsewhere – a mix of viewpoints.

But what Hamas did should be unacceptable to any human being.

I’m anti-atrocity no matter who does it.

I think you may be right about the ambivalence angle.

I will find some examples, but I may have to do a private message to wolf on here, as I have been having troubles with Gab chat again.

It may also be the evolving understanding that this was orchestrated and manipulated by the war complex . What at first seemed to be Israel vs Hamas became US calling shots, That’s a giveaway that a deadly event was created to roil up worldwide division. If that’s the case, and I think that it is, we shouldn’t be part of it unless they ask for specific help.

There has been an evolution of sorts by many, including governments.

Try the Chat link on their home page. It’s easy.

It’s not as secure as the other one, but it’s good enough.

Aubergine

Thanks. I’m looking for the post that made me go hmmmm.

I plan to release my complete worldview on the subject soon that has zero to do with the actual kidnapping, torture, rape, murder, etc. of innocent civilians by the Hamas animals.

That said, if our clowns were involved in it to help start WW III they should suffer the same pain. There is ZERO justification for that. It keeps getting easier to identify who is on the black hat side.

Looking forward to it.

Wolfmoon, you in particular will love this! Rolling Stone is upset about the flag Mike Johnson displays outside his office:

“The Rolling Stone article also had a problem with the flag that Johnson displays outside his office.”

The flag — which Rolling Stone has confirmed hangs outside his district office in the Cannon House Office Building — is white with a simple evergreen tree in the center and the phrase “An Appeal to Heaven” at the top. Historically, this flag was a Revolutionary War banner, commissioned by George Washington as a naval flag for the colony turned state of Massachusetts. The quote “An Appeal to Heaven” was a slogan from that war, taken from a treatise by the philosopher John Locke. But in the past decade it has come to symbolize a die-hard vision of a hegemonically Christian America.

Speaker is doing well. Thus far. Impatiently want more, faster. But no huge missteps. Yet.

The Revolutionary War was not only about taxes. It was also about trees, specifically white pine trees of New England. Those trees grew tall and straight, which made them highly prized for use as ships’ masts.

The King’s men would go into the forest and pick the best trees for the King’s navy. This infuriated the colonists because they had land grants yet their property was being taken without recompense. That’s why there’s an eminent domain clause in the constitution saying that just compensation must be paid.

The Green Tree sketch was a very important symbol of the war.

Very cool. Thanks for that tidbit!!!

Aubergine

That is really fascinating! I did not know that!

kalbokalbs

Good to know.

kalbokalbs

Surely hope Linda is recovering well.

(I may have missed a Linda update, since Wednesday’s appointment)

Linda

I’m doing fine, Kalbo. Thanks for asking. I’ve just been on Oxycodone for the pain and have been far too goofy to post. 😎 I don’t think I could have put 2 sentences together that made sense. Even my dog was giving me the side eye.

The operation went well and my surgeon said she got all of it. But we’re waiting to see the results of the lymph node biopsy. That’s the lymph node that breast drains into. So if the cancer had spread, it would show up there first. I should know about that in a week or two.

I’ve mostly just been relaxing at home. The pain has slowly gone away, so I’m today completely off the pain killers and back on my protocol. And the incisions are looking better each day. So I’m doing well. I really appreciate the prayers. God has been good to me.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Thanks for letting us know, Linda! Praise God! Prayers for your continued recovery!

Cuppa Covfefe

AMEN! Prayers up from over here, too…

RedLegLeader68

God Bless, Linda …

Glad you are doing well!

If you’re getting loopy on oxy, then the dosage is too high.

kalbokalbs

Wonderful news! Thanks for the update.

Aubergine

Good to hear from you! Very glad it seems to have gone well.

And dogs know things, lol. 🙂

Immigration-related stories have been getting negative publicity lately.

This is even more scandalous. Women with shovels are quite popular around here!

“…The article implies that we’re going to tolerate the next lockdown…”

Tolerate??? HELL NO! I am going to tell anyone who tries a ‘lockdown’ on me to stick it where the sun don’t shine…. I wasn’t exactly tolerant the first time and then I thought there was a problem.
