Dear KAG: 20231123 Thanksgiving Open Thread

Being full of Chinese take-out and having started Thanksgiving cooking without the matriarch, I’m digging up an old opener with some current items.

Anti-Thanksgiving? UnAmerican at best, treason more likely.

So, what REALLY happened to bring about Thanksgiving here in the former colonies of England, France and Spain?????

The Great Thanksgiving Hoax

This official story is nothing like what really happened. It is a fairy tale, a whitewashed and sanitized collection of half-truths which divert attention away from Thanksgiving’s real meaning.

The official story has the Pilgrims boarding the Mayflower, coming to America, and establishing the Plymouth colony in the winter of 1620–21. This first winter is hard, and half the colonists die. But the survivors are hard working and tenacious, and they learn new farming techniques from the Indians. The harvest of 1621 is bountiful. The pilgrims hold a celebration, and give thanks to God. They are grateful for the wonderful new abundant land He has given them.

The official story then has the Pilgrims living more or less happily ever after, each year repeating the first Thanksgiving. Other early colonies also have hard times at first, but they soon prosper and adopt the annual tradition of giving thanks for this prosperous new land called America.

The problem with this official story is that the harvest of 1621 was not bountiful, nor were the colonists hard-working or tenacious. 1621 was a famine year and many of the colonists were lazy thieves.

In his History of Plymouth Plantation, the governor of the colony, William Bradford, reported that the colonists went hungry for years because they refused to work in the field. They preferred instead to steal food. He says the colony was riddled with “corruption,” and with “confusion and discontent.” The crops were small because “much was stolen both by night and day, before it became scarce eatable.”

In the harvest feasts of 1621 and 1622, “all had their hungry bellies filled,” but only briefly. The prevailing condition during those years was not the abundance the official story claims, it was famine and death. The first “Thanksgiving” was not so much a celebration as it was the last meal of condemned men.

But in subsequent years something changes. The harvest of 1623 was different. Suddenly, “instead of famine now God gave them plenty,” Bradford wrote, “and the face of things was changed, to the rejoicing of the hearts of many, for which they blessed God.” Thereafter, he wrote, “any general want or famine hath not been amongst them since to this day.” In fact, in 1624, so much food was produced that the colonists were able to begin exporting corn.

What happened? After the poor harvest of 1622, writes Bradford, “they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop.” They began to question their form of economic organization.

This had required that “all profits & benefits that are got by trade, traffic, trucking, working, fishing, or any other means” were to be placed in the common stock of the colony, and that, “all such persons as are of this colony, are to have their meat, drink, apparel, and all provisions out of the common stock.” A person was to put into the common stock all he could, and take only what he needed.

This “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need” was an early form of socialism, and it is why the Pilgrims were starving. Bradford writes that “young men that were most able and fit for labor and service” complained about being forced to “spend their time and strength to work for other men’s wives and children.” Also, “the strong, or man of parts, had no more in division of victuals and clothes, than he that was weak.” So the young and strong refused to work and the total amount of food produced was never adequate.

To rectify this situation, in 1623 Bradford abolished socialism. He gave each household a parcel of land and told them they could keep what they produced, or trade it away as they saw fit. In other words, he replaced socialism with a free market, and that was the end of the famines.

Socialism only works in religious order settings, and then, it doesn’t really work there, either.

From our friend Gail:

The Christian Ethics Behind the Pilgrims’ Rejection of Communism

One misconception that is still with us is that the Pilgrims adopted socialism out of religious conviction, as if Christian ethics requires a Platonic communist utopia. Galles notes that this is a misconception, but it is beyond the scope of his essay to provide the full historical back drop to that initial fateful economic design.

In fact, as Bradford makes clear, the Pilgrims did not desire to establish Christian communism. The Pilgrims’ original communal property arrangements were foisted upon them by their colonial sponsors. The sponsors did this after they learned that they would not be granted a monopoly of fishing rights in Cape Cod. The sponsors’ original agreement with the Pilgrims was such that the Pilgrims were to work for four days for the sponsoring company and then would have two days to work for themselves. The sponsors later changed their deal and told the Pilgrims that they would have to work all six days of the work week for the sponsors. At the end of seven years, the Pilgrims would be granted title to the property they worked. The Pilgrims were not happy with the change, several of them recognizing that the new arrangement would make them virtual slaves of the sponsors, but they went along with the deal because many had already made large investments toward the move and they were convinced that emigrating to the New World is what God wanted them to do.

Also of interest may be the story of Squanto as told by Dr. Taylor Marshall. Unfortunately, this is only available on YouTube, so I am providing links.

And, of course, Louis Anderson telling of Thanksgiving at his house.

And, true story, we were at some relatives’ house for a September fish fry, and a cousin said, “Do we have everything out?”

In unison, several of us said, “THE CRANBERRIES!”

_______________________________________________

As usual, this is the daily thread, the place to put all information that needs to be out there – Q drops, Q drop decodes, riot information, rumors about MAGA rallies starting up again, news flashes, Chy-na flu updates, fashionable mask photos, satire, memes, and of course cute animal videos.

In the meantime, the short and sweet version of “THE RULES” is here borrowed from Tuesday:

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

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

  1. No food fights – IN HONOR OF OUR PAT, SUSPENDED FOR TODAY ONLY
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone. ALSO FOR TODAY ONLY, BYOB – BRING YOUR OWN BOURBON.

Since it is almost the weekend, the reminders are in place to not swing from the chandeliers, wash your hands and face, and be nice to the liberals whether they deserve it or not. Making your bed, OTOH, is optional.

SIRACH 50:22-24

22And now bless the God of all, who in every way does great things; who exalts our days from birth, and deals with us according to his mercy. 23May he give us gladness of heart, and grant that peace may be in our days in Israel, as in the days of old. 24May he entrust to us his mercy! And let him deliver us in our days!

PSALMS 138:1-5

1I give thee thanks, O LORD, with my whole heart; before the gods I sing thy praise; 2I bow down toward thy holy temple and give thanks to thy name for thy steadfast love and thy faithfulness; for thou hast exalted above everything thy name and thy word. 3On the day I called, thou didst answer me, my strength of soul thou didst increase. 4All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, for they have heard the words of thy mouth; 5and they shall sing of the ways of the LORD, for great is the glory of the LORD.

1 CORINTHIANS 1:3-9

3Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. 4I give thanks to God always for you because of the grace of God which was given you in Christ Jesus, 5that in every way you were enriched in him with all speech and all knowledge — 6even as the testimony to Christ was confirmed among you — 7so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as you wait for the revealing of our Lord Jesus Christ; 8who will sustain you to the end, guiltless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

LUKE 17:11-19

11On the way to Jerusalem he was passing along between Sama’ria and Galilee. 12And as he entered a village, he was met by ten lepers, who stood at a distance 13and lifted up their voices and said, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us.” 14When he saw them he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed. 15Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice; 16and he fell on his face at Jesus’ feet, giving him thanks. Now he was a Samaritan. 17Then said Jesus, “Were not ten cleansed? Where are the nine? 18Was no one found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19And he said to him, “Rise and go your way; your faith has made you well.”

Happy Thanksgiving, y’all. Remember, after the meal, it is perfectly acceptable to look for a place to lie down.

This is why a strict immigration policy is necessary. American literally CAN NOT feed the world. Our own citizens should come first.

We can talk about changing the welfare system and bringing people up out of poverty. But we created the welfare state that little old black lady grew up in. She doesn’t know anything different. And she is being displaced by people who are not here legally.

The simple fact that she didn’t / doesn’t understand the necessity of anonymous free speech — because of people just like her, who will identify and attempt to punish those with whom she disagrees — disqualifies her from serious conversation.

Which means she sits at the kids table on Thanksgiving.

She was never anywhere near qualified to be President.

If she’s good, and doesn’t talk about her heels anymore, she can sit with the kids.

IF she’s good.

And she won’t be.

This may be the “easiest” explanation of general relativity that I’ve ever seen. Not guaranteeing that you’ll understand it, but Steve’s series may have actually prepared some of y’all to understand this!

Steve, I assume you already know this but the Teaching Company has expanded to a subscription internet service called Wondrium. It has a very reasonable annual subscription fee that gives the surfer access to hundreds of high quality video lectures on hundreds of academic subjects. It is the ‘next step’ learning for which I have been waiting since I started buying Teaching Company courses many years ago. I believe there are others on this forum that would greatly enjoy their offerings.

Barb Meier

Thanks for the info, Robert! I think Wondrium should be added at my website. Their address is in Chantilly, VA.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It’s extremely difficult to tell what’s on there without signing up.

What little I see indicates it’s their courses from the teaching company catalog.

Which is great if you don’t have them!!

It’s even easier than that. There should be no Federal involvement in health. That means no NIAID, no NIH, no CDC, and no FDA, for starters. The risks are just too high, and to march every American in lockstep over a cliff is all too easy to visualize.

All health-related laws and institutions should be done at the state level. That way, even if the “authorities” are complete authoritarian imbeciles (and evidence suggests they may be), there will be some remnant of states to try to put the nation back together again.

Article I, Section 8 is not that long — and it lays out the Constitutional bounds of the Federal government……and “health” does not appear.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Great thinking. We have to get back to that. YES.

TradeBait2

Yes.

As Steve says, “limited government” is what we need. The government that is actually authorized and legally administered.

Which is not the one we have.

If you want to hear that whole crazy story about the air marshalls being used for J6 people instead of doing their actual job, here it is. Listen to the video. It’s worse than I thought.

On a side note, this bizarre diversion of law enforcement is VERY reminiscent of the situation just prior to 9/11. Just sayin’.

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.

I think J. B. Shurk is my spirit animal. I just love this guy’s take an attitude about pretty much everything. God Bless America:

“The 2/5 infantry battalion (2d Battalion, 5th Regiment) — the most highly decorated battalion in the U.S. Marine Corps — has a motto: Retreat, Hell!  Its members embrace this credo in honor of Major Lloyd W. Williams, who, as company commander of the 51st at the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War I, refused to withdraw at the urging of a French colonel and countered, “Retreat, hell!  We just got here!”  Williams later led an assault that routed the Germans at the cost of most of his men, but their bravery became legend for generations of warriors who followed.

America has always been blessed with an oversized helping of heroes.  Open up a detailed atlas of the United States, and you will be amazed at the tens of thousands of streets, hilltops, lookouts, and bodies of water named after American heroes who sacrificed themselves so that others might live and prosper.  You can walk into any small town in the country and learn about the heroics of some stranger whose accomplishments and daring were as deserving of national recognition as those with well-known names.  

It is easy to get hypnotized into a state of unnerving fatigue when “woke,” anti-American propagandists try daily to rewrite history, but this is a land of giants.  In your blood and in your spirit stirs the untamable defiance of American greatness.”

Jamie Foxx is vaccine-injured. He knows it, they know he knows it. They will destroy him to keep him silent about it. Here is the first salvo:

“Actor Jamie Foxx has been accused of sexually assaulting a woman in a New York City restaurant in 2015, according to a lawsuit filed Wednesday with the New York Supreme Court.

The unnamed plaintiff alleged in the court filing that the Oscar-winning actor told her she had a “supermodel body” and placed his hands under her clothes, groping her while at the Catch NYC & Roof on Aug. 27, 2015.”

Foxx is pretty universally liked and beloved by many. He has the prominence to really bring the pain on the clot-shot. I wish he would.

Thank you for this.
Gratitude is an “antidote” that can relieve certain aspects of poisons that affect the body-mind-spirit — anxiety/stress; self-pity; anger/frustration; panic disorder and other emotional-psychological conditions; blood pressure issues; and other things mentioned in the article (cancer, and so on.)

To be grateful regardless of circumstances.
Yesterday I was reflecting why I am so happy and contend with all the turmoil around me and in the world. Most of the time we are alone Thanksgiving still we make a turkey and whatever goes with it.
Yes gratefulness makes one joyful regardless what goes on in life. God is working within us around us for that alone one can be grateful,

This has been a pretty crappy year, honestly, and Darwin’s demise wasn’t the worst of it for me. Nor is it done.

I won’t be sorry to see 2023 in the rear view mirror.

I can only hope 2024 will be better. I imagine it will be for me on a personal level, but I dread what the regime will do to us over the next few months. One hopes we prevail.

And a Happy Thanksgiving to you.
I do hope that 2024 is a better year for you.

Yeah, this year has been a bit of a trial.

Darwin was such a cool pet. I’m sorry it hasn’t been a better year. I hope 2024 will be an improvement, for you and for us all.

That said, Happy Thanksgiving!

I suspect it will get worse before it gets better.

If Trump actually wins…and they are forced to accept it…then things should finally turn around.

It’s going to be an interesting year!

I just hope it won’t be interesting like the Chinese curse.

Aubergine

No kidding! I was thinking that even as I wrote to you.

I’m sorry you’ve been having such a trying year 🙁 Hopefully 2024 will be better for us all, & w/ the possibility of another landslide election for RealPOTUS it is easy to get our hopes up…seeing him seated in the victor’s chair, well that remains to be seen, but at least Argentina & the Netherlands give us a sense that things Might be on the upswing.

Hope you had a Wonderful Thanksgiving! Blessings 🙂

You too!

I expect Big Pharma to buy up the patents and stuff them into a cryogenic chamber.

Then I expect a few suicides/accidents of key personnel.

Into the memory hole it goes. Whee!!!!

A CSX freight train carrying toxic chemicals and other items derailed around 2AM today in Rockcastle County, Kentucky. The governor of Kentucky, Andy Beshear, declared a state of emergency for the area and officials urged residents to evacuate. 15 train cars derailed.

Three tank cars carrying liquid sulfur were breached and caught fire.

The burning causes the sulfur to form sulfur dioxide and sulfuric acid [when mixed with atmospheric water vapor], if I remember my HS chemistry correctly.

Abstract
Background
To date, most countries lifted the restriction requirement and coexisted with SARS-CoV-2. Thus, dietary behavior for preventing SARS-CoV-2 infection becomes an interesting issue on a daily basis. Coffee consumption is connected with reduced COVID-19 risk and correlated to COVID-19 severity. However, the mechanisms of coffee for the reduction of COVID-19 risk are still unclear.

Results
Here, we identified that coffee can inhibit multiple variants of the SARS-CoV-2 infection by restraining the binding of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein to human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), and reducing transmembrane serine protease 2 (TMPRSS2) and cathepsin L (CTSL) activity. Then, we used the method of “Here” (HRMS-exploring-recombination-examining) and found that isochlorogenic acid A, B, and C of coffee ingredients showed their potential to inhibit SARS-CoV-2 infection (inhibitory efficiency 43–54%). In addition, decaffeinated coffee still preserves inhibitory activity against SARS-CoV-2. Finally, in a human trial of 64 subjects, we identified that coffee consumption (approximately 1–2 cups/day) is sufficient to inhibit infection of multiple variants of SARS-CoV-2 entry, suggesting coffee could be a dietary strategy to prevent SARS-CoV2 infection.

Conclusions
This study verified moderate coffee consumption, including decaffeination, can provide a new guideline for the prevention of SARS-CoV-2. Based on the results, we also suggest a coffee-drinking plan for people to prevent infection in the post-COVID-19 era.

Very interesting.

I know coffee is fairly high in antioxidants, but there a some caveats. First, it is most healthful when consumed within thirty minutes of brewing. And for some reason, it has more antioxidant content when drip-brewed through a paper filter. Also, dark roast is safer, and and particle size matters.

Coffee is complex stuff.

Thanks Aubergine! I had recently cut way back on coffee. No particular reason, so after reading this, I fixed some this evening. It made me feel good, so I’ll go back to one or two cups in the morning.

Aubergine

I love coffee! In the evenings, I have decaf after dinner. And decaffeinating coffee doesn’t affect the antioxidant benefits, so if the caffeine bothers you, have decaf!

Riots have broken out in Dublin’s North Inner City after three young children, a man, and a woman were stabbed by a knife-wielding assailant in the Parnell Square area earlier today. The attack took place as children were lining up to go into a creche for an after-school club. A five-year-old girl received emergency medical treatment at the scene of the attack while a woman in her 30s also sustained serious injuries.

The attacker is currently in police custody with reports that the man is an Algerian national.

Riot police have been deployed to quell the unrest in the area. Tensions around immigration in that part of the city have been high since spate of protests erupted last year over the housing of migrants in a disused office building.

But the riots are mostly peaceful. 😁

This story is packed with tweets… a few samplers.

Lib journalist shows up on the scene with his bike and gets told off.

Mostly Peaceful

Libs called in the military. Likely an over reach

The MAA fighter guy is not happy. This is one from him, there are others.

So the Conor McGregor tweet didn’t show up that way… lets try this way with another. If it doesn’t show I’m calling EU censorship, but lets see.

IIRC, the Irish Dail (their legislature) passed a law stating that the Republic of Ireland would admit up to 1 million “migrants” by 2030.

Two hours of singing then sectionals rehearsal on top of it—that’s a LOT of work for the vocal mechanism.
