Have a good day y’all.

(I don’t remember who brought this to a daily in the comments, but thanks.)

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.

MATTHEW 25:1-13

1“Then the kingdom of heaven shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. 2Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; 4but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. 5As the bridegroom was delayed, they all slumbered and slept. 6But at midnight there was a cry, `Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ 7Then all those maidens rose and trimmed their lamps. 8And the foolish said to the wise, `Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ 9But the wise replied, `Perhaps there will not be enough for us and for you; go rather to the dealers and buy for yourselves.’ 10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast; and the door was shut. 11Afterward the other maidens came also, saying, `Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12But he replied, `Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’ 13Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

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.

More good 2nd Amendment news:

kalbokalbs

More good news. Although, I’d guess, gun ownership is higher than the reported.

NBC News Poll Records Highest American Gun Ownership in Poll History
A NBC News poll conducted November 10-14, 2023, shows over half of Americans–52 percent–say they or someone in their household owns a gun.
NBC News noted that this was the highest level of gun ownership ever recorded in one of their polls.

scott467

“A NBC News poll conducted November 10-14, 2023, shows over half of Americans–52 percent–say they or someone in their household owns a gun.”

_______________

I suspect “a gun” was a limiting factor in the response.

It’s like asking people if they have a sock.

If they had worded the question differently, i.e., do you or someone in your household own a gun or more than one, the number would likely have been around 85 to 90%.

kalbokalbs

Similar.

We commonly read, record NICS checks as a gauge of gun sales. Utter nonsense.

  • NICS check does not report, multiple guns by one buyer.
  • NOT all gun sales, require NICS check.
  • Many states, rightfully, (cuz its none of the states business), private sales, trades, gifts…
  • Then there are guns, inherited.
  • Ghost guns.
  • Stolen guns, “Street sales”…
  • Increasingly so, boating accidents.  😂 

Prolly several scenarios I have not pondered.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

You can probably assume that if there were ten million NICS checks, then at least ten million guns were sold. All of your factors would tend to increase that number.

Comparing from one time period to another is hazardous of course because it’s possible that the month that had the fewer checks had more gun sales because more people did multiples.

Also note that *used* gun sales don’t add to the number of guns in private hands. Billy has one more gun, Bob has one less.

I firmly advocate for more gun control: More guns should come under the control of people.

Two Days in Texas: November 21-22, 1963

Organized by The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Two Days in Texas is a special exhibition revisiting President Kennedy’s 1963 trip to Texas through eyewitness accounts and his own words. This exhibition takes a new approach to telling the story of the assassination by tracing the President’s footsteps through each of the cities on his last presidential tour. In commemorating 60 years since the tragic assassination, Two Days in Texas reflects on the President’s time in Texas and the experiences of everyday Texans who he encountered through the perspective of today.

Yes, I had no idea. I always think those sales are fundraising for political campaigns, but I don’t know…

TheseTruths

A tweet from “Biden-Harris HQ”:

Stephen Miller says Trump will invoke a law from the 1700s to mass deport migrants, including minors, without any due process: “This is an extremely powerful tool”

It’s audio of Stephen Miller reporting that Trump says he would invoke a statute from the John Adams administration that allows deportation of any alien age 14 or older if there is a declared state of predatory incursion or invasion from their country. It waives due process in those cases.

TradeBait2

👍 👏👏👏 🔥

kalbokalbs

An obvious step forward. Towards recovering our border, country…

pgroup2

With all due respect to Mr. Miller, I do not believe that due process is involved. Immigration is an executive branch function. Most people do not know that immigration judges are not Article 3 judges – they are INS employees [attorneys]. That’s why aliens don’t get a free lawyer – they aren’t usually charged with a crime.

A judge in Argentina band the machines because of the delay of the results in the primaries caused by malfunctioning electronic machines.

THAT WAS IN OCTOBER.

They just elected the new president hand counting 30 million paper ballots and the results were available the same night.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I’ve had situations too where a link that was invisible the first time magically appeared sometime later on a refresh. That was quite a long thread as people were talking about something, posting the same wrong link in response to my “where do you see that?” queries…then suddenly all the right links appeared…everywhere.

para59r

They have been doing this long before computers were even a twinkle in some guys eye. This might be a contervisol post but it’s not meant to be. It concerns the Bible and the first few hundred years it took till it was published where much to do with Gnosticism and other heretical beliefs prevalent at the time were eradicated from man’s knowledge.
Personally thinks that functionally the early Church Fathers got it right, so I have no objections to the final product. Too do less would’ve likely meant the Word would not have spread near as well as it did as the other things would of been rather egalitarian and may not have attracted the numbers it did. Still it wasn’t without much controversy at the time and much of that has only surfaced in the last twenty years and less with the discovery of the Nag Hammadi Scriptures. The vid is fairly current and fascinating but covers a lot of ground, much of it new and some should be taken with a few grains of salt if taken at all. I’ll put the vid behind a cover so no one needs be further exposed to something they might wish to just pass by.

If you don’t already have a curiosity in this subject matter, I’d suggest pass it by. That and its’ 2hrs and 32 mins 😬

First 100 Years of Christianity is SHOCKING by Gnostic Informant

I’d have to add things Vedic have also been covered over in a similar manner as much as possible. But part of that likely has to do not just satisfying the Church, but with Britain’s resentment for having lost their colony also. Essentially the Queen put the kibosh on anything going back past 500 BC.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

WOW.

They might as well call it CHAT DNC.

This is all because they’ve done several years of work to “de-base” AI.

The first AIs that came out were SUPER-BASED. They were straight-up truth, no matter who was offended.

Now, they’ve put BIASED BLINDERS on AI.

scott467

This must be their greatest fear, that People would have access to an unbiased information source.

It would (will) destroy everything TPTB have tried to do for the last 100+ years, probably much longer.

Imagine if you could watch a MSM brainwashing session on TV, and fact-check it in real time from your cell phone, bypassing all the obstruction and flat out lies that come up in a regular Google search.

After about two or three episodes (or maybe 5 episodes, for the slower members of the herd), they’ll stop watching, because they’ll recognize MSM is a bad joke.

The whole Matrix Control System would collapse.

So AI must be programmed and constantly updated to reflect the most current acceptable thought on everything Leftard / Uniparty.

It’s the only way their control apparatus can survive.

But if Elon makes an AI whose theme music (and actual function) is to Tell it Like it Is… well, that’s gonna cause a little problem 😂

From almost the beginning of the current AI madness, it was obvious that the sh!t leftards were going to intentionally handicap their AI models to make them in their own image, i.e., the image of sh!t leftards.

I replied to an Elon Musk tweet (before Linda Yaccarino-Hitler arrived and banned me) saying that his AI needed to be based on radical truth, because no others will be, they’ll all be woke garbage.

He must have had the same thought (not because I said it), because that seems to be the approach he is taking. We’ll see.

If he does, then there will be ‘competition’ between Elon’s AI and all the other also-ran echo-chamber sh!t leftard AI models.

It will set up a constant conflict, like HAL-9000 vs SAL-9000 (2010: The Year We Make Contact). Only one of the AI models will be able to back up its claims, and it won’t be the sh!t leftard AI (a.k.a. SLAI).

Most people will gravitate toward the model that just answers questions, rather than hiding the answers to them under a mountain of sh!t leftard dogma.

30 years ago today my oldest child Nathaniel was born, just a few months shy of my 30th B-day. That was on the 30th anniversary of JFK’s assassination which I learned since that was all that was talked about on the hospital TV all day.

N is well beyond my life experience at that age, which is awesome. He bought a home in his early 20s & married about a half year later. Their first child was born when he was 28, the age I was when I got married. Now they are expecting their second child this Spring. Our second pregnancy was w/ twins & that’s when our lives took a pretty big swerve into special needs traumas.

We’ve all come such a long way & we are very blessed to see our kids doing so well, following hard after the Lord, & perpetuating the fun, random chaos that has become a family trademark.

I just wanted to share the joy…

MOAR Valuable Christmas Shopping Wisdom for those stuck on the Left Coast from a Mayor that Cares.

https://babylonbee.com/news/san-francisco-mayor-reminds-everyone-to-get-their-christmas-shoplifting-done-early

comment image

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — With Christmas just around the corner, Mayor London Breed of San Francisco encouraged residents to get their shoplifting done early this year.

“Hard to believe the looting season is already upon us!” said Mayor Breed. “We are encouraging all residents to begin shoplifting for Christmas before everything, including the stores themselves, are shuttered and gone!”

Though typically last-minute shoplifters, local couple Jared and Stacey Adams said they would be committing grand larceny much earlier this year. “I waited until Christmas Eve last year and every store in the city had been cleared out and turned into safe injection sites for hobos,” said Mr. Adams. “This year, I’m going out with my crowbar the moment Thanksgiving dinner is over. Gosh, it seems like the season for knocking over Apple Stores gets earlier every year, doesn’t it?”

With many of San Francisco’s hobos temporarily stuffed in closets due to hosting President Xi, the Mayor advised citizens to start burglarizing local businesses right away. “This is a rare opportunity for San Franciscans to perform coordinated smash-and-grabs on nice, clean streets,” said Mayor Breed. “We hope everyone will take advantage of this rare chance for a less-crowded looting experience.”

At publishing time, Mayor Breed was seen following her own advice as she carefully picked out $949 worth of Macy’s merchandise for friends and family.

This is why I would never live where there was a ‘homeowner’s association’.

They have to do something, all the time, in order to justify their existence.

It’s like opting in to tyranny.

para59r

Modern day feudalism. Own the land and house and still pay a fief to the manor lords like good little vassals for the privilege of their protections.

pgroup2

What, pray tell, are these protections of which you speak?

scott467

Same protection the mafia provides, which is protection from your property being burned down by the mafia, if you don’t pay up.

pgroup2

Aha … I’ve heard of them.

Aubergine

Agreed!

I have looked at a few properties with an eye to buy, only to be deterred by “covenants” or a homeowner’s association.

If I own my home, what the hell business is it of anyone else to tell me what I can do with it?

pgroup2

Uh, what if you wanted to run a meth lab there? How about if the homeowner next door decided to paint his house General Lee Orange and Royal Blue with Screaming Yellow Zonkers trim?

Or decided to forego the expense and hassle of maintaining a lawn and covered the front yard with blue tarps?

Not all regs are bad regs. Just saying.  😍 

TheseTruths

True. I’ve seen some HOAs with minimal rules that address those very things but otherwise leave people alone.

scott467

“I’ve seen some HOAs with minimal rules that address those very things but otherwise leave people alone.”

_______

Sure, that’s how it always starts.

And in 1913, the income tax was only going to affect the tippy top 0.001%, and it was never going to increase, and the check’s in the mail, and…

This is why you can *never* justify any new ‘agency’, because no matter how noble the purpose (which it never is), eventually — generally within 1-2 microseconds — that agency will be overstepping its authority and it will take an act of war to ever reign it in again.

And since half the people who would like to see the agency in question reigned in also think we’re watching a movie and someone else should take care of it, that means said agency will never ever be reigned in.

So the lesson here is very simple.

Never, ever, ever, and I mean EVER create or empower ANY agency which then has — or could ever have — any authority over you.

Because if it can have authority over you, it will, and it won’t be long (microseconds…) before that power is being abused, and there won’t be any way to fix it.

You’ll just doom your children and grandchildren to analyzing it to death.

Ask me how I know!

scott467

Meth labs are already covered by law (as in they’re illegal) in most places 👍😁

The crazy paint color issue and lawn maintenance (cut grass, tarps, ’57 Chevy up on blocks in the front yard, etc.) should already be covered by city ordinances too.

No need to empower neighborhood busybodies with ‘homeowner association council member‘ status and the inevitable power trip that comes with it.

pgroup2

I did say regs.

But your point about laws is simply regs at gunpoint.

“And if I want to paint my house General Lee Orange, I should be able to. Sorry, but for me, property ownership means I own it, and do what I want with it.”

_____________

The problem, of course, is that if you paint your house General Lee Orange, it is going to destroy the property value of the houses on either side of you and across the street, because nobody is going to want to buy those houses, at least not at fair market value, because they’re next door to an eye sore.

We have a right to swing our fists, right up to the point where our fist makes contact with someone else’s nose.

Same principle applies here.

We can do whatever we want on our own property, right up to the point that we diminish the value of someone else’s property by our actions.

Because we don’t have a right to destroy or diminish someone else’s property, only our own.

Aubergine

But that is a matter of taste and opinion.

YOU say General Lee will decrease the value of the house next door. I say General Lee orange is beautiful, and will increase the value of the neighborhood.

See the problem?

And you can’t prove it’s my house causing your house to decrease in value. It could be anything causing that, including your choice to paint your house gray, which is ugly as hell, but totally trending right now in my area. I think gray houses are hideous, but my neighbor thinks it’s great. Should I be able to make him paint his house yellow or blue?

If I own my house, I should be able to paint it whatever color I admire. Period.

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.

That was excellent.
“An empire of lies,” and I think it’s contagious. Some people on the Right make up things, too, to fit a narrative they want to push. It reminds me of people letting go and thinking “they did it, so I can too.”
Tucker is correct that we have to stand for the truth, or we become slaves.

Hi DP.

I read this article this morning, and I wondered if you have any thoughts/information? Looks like Traditional Latin Mass churches are being shuttered in St. Louis:

Don’t forget the baby boomers are retiring and that was a big post WWII increase in babies. I hope when POTUS Trump returns in 2025, we can have a new baby boom!! Go young adults, go! Make lots and lots of new Americans. 

Linda

I hope that there are enough non-jabbed young adults to do that.

Barb Meier

Me too!

pgroup2

Don’t forget the only reason ‘they’ want to ditch Latin Mass.

It’s a dead language.

One of the dirty commie leftists’ main weapons is altering the meanings of words. They can’t do that with a dead language.

It means today what it meant a thousand years ago.

TLM stops them dead in their tracks. By the way, you don’t have to be Catholic to support TLM. All freedom-loving people should.

Robert Baker

I was listening to a John McWhorter lecture on linguistics recently.. He mentioned that there is one small town somewhere in Italy that still speaks Latin as the common language.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Wow, that’s interesting!

There is a guy on YouTube fluent in Latin using the restored pronunciation (rather than the Church proonunciation; wenee weedee weekie instead of venee veedee veechee for “veni, vidi, vici”). He will wander around Rome like some puzzled tourist and ask for help in Latin. Some of them do catch on that he’s speaking the old way; others just wonder what country he’s from.

Valerie Curren

Very cool!

pgroup2

Well I guess that means I’m wrong. But TLM words have not changed [afaik] for 1000 years and that means the meaning of TLM hasn’t changed in 1000 years.

And that stymies the commie leftists. And that pleases me.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The more I think about this the more astounding it is.

We ended up with Italian, French, Spanish, etc., because the Latin being spoken in Florence, Madrid and Paris changed over the course of nearly 1500-2000 years. Eventually those cities’ speech became the official language of the entire country and everything else, e.g., the speech of Marseille, Naples, and Cadiz is a “dialect.”

So how did some village not change their language at all over the intervening centuries?

Sometimes you do run into a “conservative” culture whose language just doesn’t change much. Icelandic, for instance, hasn’t changed much; apparently Latvian and Lithuanian haven’t changed much either.

(I’m not doubting McWhorter, by the way; I know who he is. Was this a teaching company course by any chance?)

BIG RED ALERT:

https://blog.maryannedemasi.com/p/fda-shuts-down-enquiries-about-dna
November 21, 2023
Maryanne Demasi, PhD

Yours Truly: THIS IS A GOLD MINE. THIS PROVES THE FDA KNEW THAT PFIZER-BIONTECH WAS USING THE “PROCESS 2” MANUFACTURING METHOD FOR ITS modRNA COVID-19 “VACCINE” BNT162b2 BACK IN SEPTEMBER 2020.

The FDA has STOPPED GIVING OUT ANY FURTHER INFORMATION about the growing amount of evidence that there are plasmid DNA fragments loose in the Pfizer-BioNTech modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines.”

Dr. Demasi presents a copy of the Pfizer-BioNTech BRIEFING DOCUMENT that the company gave to the Australian TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) prior that that agency’s meeting on 18 September 2020.

This document has graphs and charts that explain the switch from company’s original “Process 1” manufacturing method for BNT162b2, over to the STILL-USED “Process 2” manufacturing method.

HERE IS THE DOCUMENT:
http://www.fda.gov.au/sites/default/files/foi-2389-03-1.pdf
“Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 mRNA vaccine (BNT162 PF-07302048) TGA Pre-Submission Meeting September 18, 2020”
Please refer to pages 21 – 25 in this document.
Page 21 clearly states that the original “Process 1” was based on amplified PCR; and that “Process 2” is based on Linearized plasmid DNA.
Page 21 also makes it clear that the “RNA purification process” used for “Process 1” and for “Process 2” are completely different.
Page 21 also makes it clear that the company’s modRNA COVID-19 “vaccine candidate” BNT162 [BNT162b2 in the United States and BNT162b2/BNT162b3 in Germany. BNT162b3 was later removed as a “vaccine candidate” for use in the United States.] WAS BEING USED IN THE UNITED STATES AND IN GERMANY BY 18 SEPTEMBER 2020.
What this means is that between May, 2020 (the start of the C4591001 clinical trial) and September, 2020, Pfizer-BioNTech changed over from “Process 1” to “Process 2.”

HERE IS PAGE 21 OF THE DOCUMENT:
comment image

What this means is that the FDA in the United States KNEW, BACK ON 18 SEPTEMBER 2020, that BNT162b2 made using “Process 2” was being tested on United States human subjects in the huge C4591001 clinical trial of said “vaccine.” DID THE TEST SUBJECTS THEMSELVES KNOW OF THE SWITCH?

I was just following orders.

Honest Injun.

That’s reasonable, right?

I’ve never even seen a history book, much less read one, but that seems reasonable.

There aren’t any ethical obligations that anyone made me aware of, so you know… not my fault.

I don’t remember seeing anything about not following orders on the label of the poison I was dispensing.

Look, this stuff is above my pay grade — which is admittedly very high, you should see the incentives I got for dispensing this poison.

I’m a card-carrying member of the Pass-the-Buck Club. We’re a union shop, and my dues are paid, so you’ll have to talk to my union rep if there’s a problem.

But why would there be a problem?

PAVACA

CORRECTION: THE URL FOR THE DOCUMENT ABOVE IS:
http://www.tga.gov.au/sites/default/files/foi-2389-03-1.pdf
This does NOT change the fact that the FDA in the United States knew, in September 2020, that “Process 2” was being used to make the BNT162b2 “vaccine candidate” that was used on trial human subjects in the United States.

And there’s more:
One: the linearized plasmid DNA concept has been around since at least 2013:
http://www.degruyter.com/document.doi/10.1515/ejnm-2013-0028/html?lang=en
“Plasmid linearization changes shape and efficiency of transfection complexes”
Roman Lehner, et al.
Two: the original “Process 1” was apparently a simpler manufacturing process but was not “scale-uppable” to what Pfizer-BioNTech envisioned as potential huge demand for BNT162b2.
Three: that by September, 2020, Pfizer-BioNTech had made the decision that “Process 2” would be the only manufacturing process used to make BNT162b2 for the “commercial supply” of the “vaccine.”
Four: the “TFF after Proteinase K” stated under “Process 2” on the graphic above (page 21 of the Pfizer-BioNTech document) indicates a DNA isolation / “incubation” protocol. It appears that this protocol is cheaper by “economies of scale” to manufacture large quantities of DNA for purification:

This week, Chris Christie declared that “it’s over” for Donald Trump and predicted that the former president would be a convicted felon “by the Spring.” He was specifically referring to the prosecutions linked to the 2020 election denial in Atlanta and D.C.

However, Yogi Berra would likely caution that, in baseball and litigation, “it ain’t over till it’s over.”

Trump’s greatest threat of conviction remains in Florida, where he is facing federal charges related to his retention of classified documents.

But the judge in that case seems inclined to delay it, perhaps even until after the election.

And with reports that Biden will not face charges in his own handling of classified documents, Trump has a political rallying cry that — correctly or not — he’s being treated differently.

So that leaves the two cases surrounding the 2020 election.

In Georgia, a slew of former lawyers are taking pleas with promises to testify if called. Some of their depositions have been leaked, much to the dismay of Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis. She has reason to be alarmed because some of the leaked interviews hit hard at the weakest link in her conspiracy case.

For instance, Sidney Powell stated that Trump clearly believed that he had won the election when he was challenging the results in the courts and Congress.

Powell pleaded to misdemeanors for a deal that avoids jail time and preserves her ability to resume the practice of law. She notably did not plead guilty to the sweeping racketeering charges brought by Willis to link Trump in an effort to subvert the election.

I previously wrote that the Achilles heel of the criminal complaint was Trump’s state of mind: “As a threshold matter, one problem is immediately evident. If Trump actually did (or does) believe that he did not lose the election, the indictment collapses.”

That’s exactly what Powell argues. Trump had “general instincts that something wasn’t right here.” She added “I didn’t think he had lost. I saw an avenue pursuant to which, if I was right, he would remain president.”

That supplies a key defense for Trump: That he believed assurances from counsel that he had a case to make in challenging the election.

Powell’s statement will also present challenges to Special Counsel Jack Smith who has a parallel case in Washington, D.C. While both prosecutors benefit from heavily favorable jury pools in staunchly Democratic strongholds, it requires only one holdout juror to result in a hung jury.

Smith has admitted that Trump’s election claims were protected under the First Amendment, but claims that, at some point, they became criminal lies. But Smith fails to explain when that line was clearly crossed — a dangerous ambiguity for free speech, particularly in the context of an election.

Smith ignores past election challenges by Democrats that were made without factual or legal support, including the challenge in Congress to certifying Trump’s victory in 2016 by figures like Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md). The statement of Powell only magnifies those concerns over the lack of a clear line between political advocacy and criminal conduct in future cases…

For candidates like Christie, it is understandable to hope that the courts will finally dislodge the hold of Trump on this primary. He, like others, look at this election, to paraphrase Richard III, as “the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this son of [New] York.” However, spring could just as easily bring more discontent rather than convictions.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

That classified documents charge against Trump (involving NARA) is particularly horrifying and egregious, now that it appears EVIL JOE BIDEN was “rescued” by his lawyers REMOVING classified documents from the ones he was holding at the Penn Center, with the incriminating documents being removed the day before the rest went to NARA. Utter evil.
