2023·12·02 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

What is it that feeds our battle, yet starves our victory?

January 6 Tapes Reminder

After the first release, we were supposed to get more, every week.

As far as I know it hasn’t happened.

Speaker Johnson, please follow through!

24/7, to piss on your grave. Then there will be a latrine erected there so people can make, shall we say, more substantial commentary.

A Caution

Just remember…we might replace the RINO candidates. (Or we might not. The record is mixed even though there is more MAGA than there used to be.) But that will make no difference in the long run if the party officials, basically the Rhonna McDaniels (or however that’s spelled–I suspect it’s RINO), don’t get replaced.

State party chairs, vice chairs, secretaries and so on, and the same at county levels, have huge influence on who ultimately gets nominated, and if these party wheelhorses are RINOs, they will work tirelessly to put their own pukey people on the ballot. In fact I’d not be surprised if some of our “MAGA” candidates are in fact, RINO plants, encouraged to run by the RINO party leadership when they realized that Lyn Cheney (and her ilk) were hopelessly compromised as effective candidates. The best way for them to deal with the opposition, of course, is to run it themselves.

Running good candidates is only HALF of the battle!

SPECIAL SECTION: Message For Our “Friends” In The Middle Kingdom

I normally save this for near the end, but…basically…up your shit-kicking barbarian asses. Yes, barbarian! It took a bunch of sailors in Western Asia to invent a real alphabet instead of badly drawn cartoons to write with. So much for your “civilization.”

Yeah, the WORLD noticed you had to borrow the Latin alphabet to make Pinyin. Like with every other idea you had to steal from us “Foreign Devils” since you rammed your heads up your asses five centuries ago, you sure managed to bastardize it badly in the process.

Have you stopped eating bats yet? Are you shit-kickers still sleeping with farm animals?

Or maybe even just had the slightest inkling of treating lives as something you don’t just casually dispose of?

中国是个混蛋 !!!

China is asshoe !!!

And here’s my response to barbarian “asshoes” like you:

OK, with that rant out of my system…

Biden Gives Us Too Much Credit

…we can move on to the next one.

Apparently Biden (or his puppeteer) has decided we’re to blame for all of the fail in the United States today.

Sorry to disappoint you Joe (or whoever), but you managed to do that all on your own; not only that, you wouldn’t let us NOT give you the chance because you insisted on cheating your way into power.

Yep, you-all are incompetent, and so proud of it you expect our applause for your sincerity. Fuck that!!

It wouldn’t be so bad, but you insist that everyone else have to share in your misery. Nope, can’t have anyone get out from under it. Somehow your grand vision only works if every single other person on earth is forced to go along. So much as ONE PERSON not going along is enough to make it all fail, apparently.

In engineering school we’re taught that a design that has seven to eight billion single points of failure…sucks.

Actually, we weren’t taught that. Because it would never have occurred to the professors to use such a ridiculous example.

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.

Kamala Harris has a new nickname since she finally went west from DC to El Paso Texas: Westward Hoe.

Lawyer Appeasement Section

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.
7. Rule three: Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
8. Rule the fourth: Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

(Hmm a few extras seem to have crept in.)

Spot Prices

All prices are Kitco Ask, 3PM MT Friday (at that time the markets close for the weekend). (Note: most media quotes are for the bid…the price paid by the market makers, not the ask, which is what they will sell at. I figure the ask is more relevant to people like us who wish we could afford to buy these things. In the case of gold the difference is usually about a dollar, for the PGMs the spread is much wider.)

Last Week:

Gold $2,003.70
Silver $24.42
Platinum $941.00
Palladium $1,094.00
Rhodium $4,900.00

So here it is, Friday, 3PM MT after markets closed and we see:

Gold $2,072.00
Silver $25.52
Platinum $944.00
Palladium $1026.00
Rhodium $4,800.00

This is a record high close for gold. It jumped up $35 on Friday. I do not know what the absolute high point was, earlier in the day, other than it was around $2,075. Many analysts expect a sustained push beyond $2,100. Meanwhile palladium’s slow decline continues. Silver is climbing (but nowhere near its 1980 high of roughly $50, even without adjusting for inflation). Platinum seems stable.

How We Know What Classical Latin Sounded Like

I stated earlier this week, as a side note to something else, that the Latin of Julius Caesar sounded a bit different from the Latin spoken by the Catholic Church (i.e., the one headquartered within Rome). We don’t know everything, exactly, but we do know a lot.

I got some pushback, and some arguments that demonstrated that some people simply don’t believe (or don’t understand the consequences of) the fact that languages change over time, especially when there are no audio recordings.

People are right to not simply take my word for it though, so I’ll bring some of the reasoning.

It at first seems a daunting task to reconstruct the sounds of a language when there were no audio recordings. (Well, I suppose if aliens have been watching us for millennia, there might be. Just the thought of that is enough to make historical linguists drool.)

Historical Linguistics (sometimes called diachronic linguistics) is the study of language change over time. (It is a science, albeit a rather “soft” one, so I expect and hope Wolf will be filing this in the sidebar.) This means it’s concerned with how one language changes over time, and the process by which one widespread language splits into multiple languages.

A good, down-home example of the former is the changes that English has gone through since the Germanic invasions and settlement of Britain in (roughly) 500 CE. And the change is considerable. Our founding fathers’ writing patterns seem quaint but we usually have no trouble understanding them (except for those times we only think we understand them…fortunately those don’t arise much in the documents). Shakespeare is notably harder to deal with. The King James Bible translation was made in Shakespeare’s day, and deliberately had some archaic language in it for gravitas, and it gets more difficult. Not only old words, but sometimes a word we use today meant something different back then and we get tripped up. The moral of that story: over generations words can shift meanings. But there’s more. In the couple of centuries before Shakespeare, and even during Shakespeare’s day, we underwent something called the “Great Vowel Shift” where the sounds of the vowels all changed, over the span of less than a century. I…formerly pronounced like the i in machine, but with a little more duration (making it “long”), became pronounced like aye. (And we still call it “long I” even though it’s not actually long in duration.) Meet, meat, and the middle e in serene changed from sounding like today’s e in bet, or an Italian e, to sounding like I used to sound. The a in mate used to be a long-in-duration ah, and sounds…well like it sounds today…a combination of former e and i called a diphthong. These are vowels that are pronounced in the front of the mouth with the tongue at different heights, and they all shifted up one place once “i” became “eye.” Curiously this happened mostly to our “long” vowels. Instead of just being the same as the short vowels, only pronounced for twice as long, they shifted.

Other similar changes upward happened with o and u (which are pronounced in the back of the mouth.

If you’ve ever taken Spanish, you’ve noticed that a, e, i, o, and u are pronounced quite differently than in English, and you may have thought it a bit weird. It turns out Spanish is much closer to the original pronunciations; we’re the weird ones. We used to have more Spanish-like pronunciations (though we sometimes lengthened a vowel). Then we spent 1400-1700 bodging all this, and making our own spelling hard for us and completely incomprehensible for others.

And the International Phonetic Alphabet actually goes with the older usages. I like machine. e like the Italian e (which we don’t have any more and fake with the day diphthong), a like in father (and never like in day), u as in fool, and o sort-of as in vote. (Another diphthong used to fake a pure sound we don’t have any more.) The e in bet is actually a different sound represented in the IPA with ε. (Linguists usually write actual sound values like this: /i/ to distinguish them from some language’s letter I which might mean something totally different.)

So…sounds can change with time, too.

And languages can split. Most famous here is Latin, splitting into Italian, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Romanian, and a whole host of other languages that don’t happen to share the names of countries. And within each of these, very distinctive dialects that are sometimes different enough that it’s debatable whether it’s the same language any more. It’s actually a gradient. The local language spoken in Marseille (as opposed to the Parisian French in the schools) isn’t terribly different from the tongue spoken in nearby parts of Italy…or the tongue spoken in northwestern Spain. They’re geographically close, but in all three places a faraway capital imposes a “standard” language, and those standard languages differ far more (especially French, which has undergone some serious pronunciation changes).

In this case every local group’s language has slowly shifted, in slightly different directions, until they’re quite separate, and it’s hard to understand other languages (the further away, the worse), if it can be done at all.

Some languages change more than others; historical linguists love finding a language that is “conservative” meaning it hasn’t changed too much. The Baltic languages (Latvian and Lithuanian) apparently haven’t changed much; neither has Icelandic (the other Scandinavian tongues have changed a lot more).

Okay…so there’s some examples.

Latin, of course, was originally spoken in Latium, the region around Rome in Italy.

Latium is now called “Lazio” which just goes to make the point about changes. This is one that in hindsight is no surprise. /t/ before /i/ tends to become /ts/ (spelled z in Italian). Why? Because people are lazy and start to slur their words, eventually the slur becomes normal. If the process were to continue, the /t/ might disappear entirely leaving just /si/. This has been seen under so many different occasions world wide that now if we have two related languages and one has /ti/ where the other has /tsi/ or even /si/ we know the second language is the one that changed.

Sometimes, though, you have just one language and since not all possible changes will actually happen (otherwise Latin would never have split up, just changed the same everywhere), it can be hard to figure out what the original sound was.

But with Latin we have multiple descendant languages. And we have something else; we have writings in other languages, trying to render Latin words.

For instance we have the Greek spellings of Latin words. And in this case, without fail, the Greeks rendered Latin “C” with Greek “Κ” (kappa). Kappa is never pronounced as anything other than /k/. Never /s/ and never /tʃ/ (our ch). Now one might say that the Greeks don’t have a /tʃ/ sound so they might have faked it with kappa, but that’s very doubtful. /tʃ/ is pronounced in the front of the mouth, /k/ in the back. The Greeks would have likely faked /tʃ/ with tau and sigma: τς or τσ, not with some sound from the back of the mouth. They don’t have a match for ʃ (sh) at all, but /s/ is pronounced in almost the same place.

Thus “vici” was pronounced with a hard /k/, as was Caesar, and Cicero. We also have Roman authors asking why on earth they don’t just get rid of the letter K since it’s pronounced just like C. (It’s a part of the Latin alphabet but rarely used; kalends is probably the most common Latin word I see with that K. Kyrie is borrowed from the Greek.)

OK, so now onto the other bone of contention, the V.

We again have Greeks rendering Roman words with the v in them, and again without failure, it’s never with the letter the Greeks use for v (more on that below). For example Valerius (a commonly used name) is rendered in Greek as Ουαλεριος (Oualerios). The Greeks didn’t (and still don’t) have /w/, but /Ου/ was pronounced /u/ and that’s very, very close, in a diphthong it is basically a /w/. We can tell when V changed from /w/ to /v/ though, because later Greek inscriptions rendered ‘Valerius’ as Βαλεριος, starting with the Greek letter beta.

Beta (Β, β) has been pronounced like /v/ not /b/, since about 200 BCE and is still /v/ today. (If Greeks want to spell the /b/ sound today, they use μπ.) /b/ and /v/, note, are both pronounced in the front of the mouth, one is a stop and the other is a fricative. If you pronounce the sounds and pay attention to what your mouth and lips are doing, you’ll see what I mean.

And this is why Cyrillic В is a /v/; Cyrillic was based on Greek in the 9th century, well after that shift happened. Cyrus and Methodius were aware of the old pronunciation, so /b/ is represented with a variant shape, Б, right before В in the Cyrillic alphabet.

Now as to the point of why Eccesiastical (Church) Latin sounds so much like Italian today (used as an argument for it not having changed at all), the reason it sounds so much like Italian, is because it is largely Italians who have been using it. The Church is based in Rome; they’re surrounded by Italians, most of the staff are Italians, and in fact even today 49 out of 241 cardinals are Italians. As Italian changed into its present form, the “frozen” Latin from the early centuries of the Church changed its pronunciation (the one thing not preserved in writing) to match. Grammar and vocubulary (as spelled) did not change, because it was preserved in writing.

Bonus video:

An American, fluent in Latin, using the classical pronunciation (wenee, weedi, weeky) in Rome. You can see it’s a bit of a struggle but they eventually get it.

And again at the Colosseum. I haven’t watched this one like I have the others, but if he’s really asking where the Flavian Amphitheater is, they’re entitled to ask him if he’s fricking blind. (The Flavian Amphitheater is what the Romans called the Colosseum.):

A more open experiment: I believe in this case he actually asked the Romans to try the experiment of speaking in Latin. Some things are easy, some things they couldn’t get:

And going to the Vatican. This time he used the Ecclesiastical pronunciation (vennee, veedee, veechee) which is how they’re used to it. Still, few people there claimed fluency:

OK with that out of the way it’s time to discuss asshoes.

Obligatory PSAs and Reminders

China is Lower than Whale Shit

Remember Hong Kong!!!

China is in the White House

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:

That was a fascinating dive into linguistic history! The first video is very interesting too. (I haven’t gotten to the others yet.)

para59r

Yep… took me on a little trip.
First stop was here…

Short but interesting. Layed things out in prospective.

Second stop was here. Must of been the pretty face, but turned out to be a mother load. Everything explained very well.

Much of her stuff consists of snippet history, mixed with languages and many maps. Pause button is suggested to be at the ready. Each of her vids are normally under about 12 mins. Good springboard stuff but I don’t see her doing a specific vid for Latin.

Her home page on youtube… lots of directions to go.
https://www.youtube.com/@JuLingo

After that you can see that it might be more of a matter of preference… so I went here.

Though this one seems like a better starting point…

Uh … it’s a load of crap to mis-use that word for lode.

Bet you’re using talk-to-text, right?  😂 

para59r

It’s certainly not what any of us were taught and disobeys conventional thought as it strays from the Christian Jewish Biblical thing and also strays from the Greek Roman thing as well as the Persian to Sumer thing too as it seeks deeper wider roots than all that if that’s what you mean as a load of crap 😆. Might not be, that’s a leap on my part, but I am seeing some constrictions on thought, well placed, well meaning and well thought out are nevertheless loosening and have been for quite some time since the last hundred and so years but are only now finding outlets to wider audience, not that anyone is paying attention.

As to talk to text, nope. Continuously rewrites my sentences. Fluidity of thought and gift of gab are two things lacking. 😉

They shouldn’t be making Jack or the FIB out to be scary or deranged, that’s empowering. Tyrants love to be perceived as scary.

They should be mocking him and belittling him. Tyrants don’t like that at all.

I haven’t researched this and am wondering how people with the “new” whilte lung syndrome are being treated. I wonder if IVM and HCQ would help.

slowcreekno

Apparently, this «white lung» refers to a mycoplasma bacterial infection of the lungs. But it seems to be a new term coined recently to describe a certain kind of pneumonia.

So I’m detecting a whiff of some kind of campaign here, as when old diseases gain new names, someone has something ready to sell. (or maybe it is just that these days, my spirit animal is the suspicious cat…)

It also brings to mind the «ground-glass lung» appearence of lungs on CT, that was a thing during early parts of the corona-sickness period in 2020.

As for remedies, I’d expect that anything that helps the body’s immune system will be good. Though I don’t think anti-parasitics like HCQ and IVM will conquer the bacteria, as those were more effecitive with zinc as antivirals against virus. Some kind of antibiotic might be needed here.

pgroup2

Easily treated with antibiotics is what I heard on Warroom, though there may be some resistance to the common drugs.

Aubergine

My first thought is elecampane root.

This herbal remedy is the absolute best for deep lung infection. It is a powerful expectorant. Weirdly, it also will stop an unproductive cough. This is due, I think, to it’s mildly analgesic properties. It sort of numbs the throat.

It can be used as a decoction (tea), an electuary (the fresh root sliced or grated and preserved in honey, or my favorite way, which is kind of candied.

I slice the root about 1/4 inch thick. Put a thick layer of honey in a pan, and lay the sliced root in it in a single layer. Bring the honey to a bubbling simmer and pull it off the heat. When the bubbling subsides, put it back on the heat until it bubbles again. Do this three times. When it cools, put it in a glass jar. Stored in a cool, dark place, I have kept elecampane this way for a couple of years.

The plant is pretty easy to identify in the wild, though I grow it in my yard. The fresh root smells something like violets.

https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/elecampane

para59r

Perhaps mayhaps think about taking These Truth’s comment added to yours and posting it on that link. 😮🙄🤔😏👍😁👍

Meanwhile if I had kids, I’d suggest that they could go out to scour the neighborhood for some, as it seems like an easy horticulture project, though I’d likely be a bit amiss in pointing out the growing season is July-Sept. Still they’d get a copy of that page and when they returned empty handed I’d remind them about attention to detail, so not my fault. 😁

In the meantime, though this is Texas, will keep my own eye out, as I’m sure I’ve seen those thin yellow blades in my yard before and have likely run them down with my mower. Seems every weed known to man has sprung up in my yard at one point or another and finding some could be a great excuse to put off mowing for another day. 😉

Aubergine

Elecampane is a BIG plant. Mine are six feet tall!

TheseTruths

Thanks for that great info! I’m saving it.

Aubergine

You’re welcome!

Happy go lucky

Thank you Aubergine! I don’t think it grows around me but Mountain Rose Herbs sells it.

The other day when you talking about wormwood, I wanted to ask if you had a favorite book on the subject you would recommend?

Aubergine

Oh, yes. Mountain Rose Herbs is a great source.

A favorite book about herbalism, I think you mean? Not just wormwood, I assume.

My favorite herbals are Bartram’s Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine for uses, preparations, and dosages. He is old-school and very specific:

My other favorite it Andrew Chevallier’s Encyclopedia of Herbal Medicine. It has wonderful illustrations and very good information:

So, I had a medical appointment on Thursday. Although I am sure there are worse patients, I have a variety of behaviors in medical settings that are quirky. For example, I tend to be observing things…..but always at the point of hearing “squirrel!” Also, being curious about all the devices around, it is only by sheer force of will that I manage not to disassemble all the equipment in an examination room before the doctor comes in.

Anyway, I am being led in from the lobby to get weighed in, before being sat in the examination room and having BP and all that. The physician’s assistant, a comely young lass young enough to be my daughter, takes me back to the scale. I’m holding a backpack and coat that I’m trying to set down before stepping onto the scale when I happen to glance toward her.

At which point I did a double-take, looked at her chest, and squinted my eyes to focus. She drily noted, “my name is Teresa**” — likely figuring that I was either trying to read her name badge (on a lanyard), or just ogle.

I replied, “I knew that”, and continued, “I just saw the tag on your pocket. I don’t have my glasses on, and initially thought it said ‘PIGS’ and was trying to figure out why.” This caused one of the other PAs in a nearby office to gasp loudly and start to laugh.

[Teresa was actually wearing a FIGS Catarina scrub top — they have them on Amazon. The tag was light grey and the scrub was maroon, so it stood out — and the font for the logo was blocky.]

At this point, I stepped up on the scale and we got the weight recorded. Her laughing associate had continued into full scale hilarity to the point where she might fall off her chair — as I retrieved my coat and backpack, she calmed to the point where she thanked me for being the most entertaining part of her day.

cthulhu

It’s a nice, trim, color-coordinated look, but you can understand why the tag caught my eye — and, then, it was obvious that something was written on it…..but it was just the wrong distance for no glasses…..

But, then, when I first read “PIGS”, I was going — (a) what a weird thing to say on one’s clothing; (b) she’s certainly cute enough that I wouldn’t apply “PIGS” to her (just like the three models above); and (c) maybe it’s one of those psycho post-feminist things, implying that she was dealing with PIGS…..and maybe I was supposed to be one…..

Barb Meier

Yes, it makes perfect sense. I was never fond of the feminist business. I refused to comply with the whole s/he phase. Gak!

kalbokalbs

Pigs.

Coulda been its pronoun.   :wpds_mrgreen: 

Barb Meier

I love the v-neck tops too.

Barb Meier

Thanks for the entertaining story, cthulhu! So of course, I had to go to Amazon and search for these FIGS tops to see one. You describe them perfectly though I wondered if they might have fig designs on the shirt. Can you tell I have not gone to a doctors office for many years? Vets office techs and groomers have designs on their tops and I always take my pets for health and beauty trips.

Next, I had to learn if figs are fruits or vegetables. LOL Busy mind in the middle of the night. It’s 2 am here and yes, I should be sleeping but my sleep patterns are out of whack.

Despite being called a fruit, a fig is technically a syconium—a tiny group of inverted flowers growing inside a pod. Each pod contains hundreds of flowers, and each flower produces a small seed, which is the actual fruit of the fig plant. An achene contains each seed. We see them more commonly on the outside of strawberries. Each fig consists of hundreds of achenes (they’re the slightly crunchy bit), which means that every time you eat a fig, you’re actually eating multiple fruits at one time. The flesh around the achene (the soft delicious part that we enjoy the most) is accessory fruit, even though to us it’s the main event.

One question. Do you often take a backpack with you?

Q3_2023_08_AUBURN_CATARINA_W_MELANIE_16613
cthulhu

Nearly always. Why?

Barb Meier

Just curious. I’m just used to guys only carrying keys and a wallet in their back pockets. LOL

cthulhu

I always carry keys and change in my left front pocket. Paper money and wallet in my right front pocket. This left me with no place to carry a smartphone when I was eventually forced to get one — which reminds me, I need to fish it out and put it back on the charger.

Barb Meier

That’s right. The keys and change go in the front pocket.

cthulhu

I also carry reading material, an itinerary/appointment reminder/travel docs, post-it notes, pens, and the like.

About the only weird thing that’s always in the backpack is a roll of toilet paper. Some years back, I was somewhere and needed to commune with mother nature for a bit — and, when I had done so, I found myself contemplating one of those giant rolls of sub-one-ply generic paper that is nearly useless and doesn’t tear off cleanly….and I swore a mighty oath: “As God is my witness, as God is my witness they’re not going to lick me. I’m going to live through this and when it’s all over, I’ll never be hungry again. No, nor any of my folk. If I have to lie, steal, cheat or kill. As God is my witness, I’ll never be hungry again.”

Oh, wait — that was another oath. My oath was more like, “this is complete BS that I should never have to deal with.” So, I started carrying a roll of TP around. As it turns out, it’s almost like being a cool frood who knows where his towel is in Hitchhiker’s Guide — it comes in handy more frequently than you might think. And, of course, if I ever do find myself in a stall where the dispenser on the wall is trying to give me single squares of waxed one-ply……

Some doctors want you to bring all your medicines along which some folks can’t fit in a pocket.

When going to the doctor with Sally Q, I usually carry a book in case they are running late, since I don’t have a smart phone to play with (just graduated from 2002 Nokia 3g to Kyocera flip 4g in November) and sometimes a bottle of water – tissues in case I sneeze – chapstick or lipstick. I also need to carry a snack for her due to her diabetes and need to keep blood sugar at a healthy level.

As needed, TP can provide a tissue for your sneeze, a napkin for your messy meal, a wound dressing, a towel for a spill, a hand protector to pick up something you don’t want to touch, and a zillion other things.

Another example of a weird quasi-fruit is the pomegranate.

cthulhu

Another weird fruit with a backstory is the avocado. Biologically, it is in the form of a fruit that is consumed whole by an herbivore — where the seed and some accompanying fertilizer is later deposited at some distance. There is, however, a minor problem….avocados are New World plants, and there haven’t been any herbivores large enough to consume them whole (or pass the seeds) in the New World for 10,000 years.

The last animals that fit the description were giant ground sloths — animals the size of rhinos and African elephants that roamed the Americas. There are sites which show that these were hunted by humans.

Extinction of the giant ground sloths made the avocado’s ecological strategy untenable, and they were slowly dying out through their ancestral range…..until identified as a food crop by humans.

Today, the most popular type of commercial avocado is the Hass, which has a charming story behind it — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolph_Hass#Discovery_of_the_Hass_Avocado

A plant that seemed doomed 10,000 years ago became massively popular in the 1930s and is now found around the world. Something to contemplate with some guacamole…..

Barb Meier

I love avocado and guacamole. The last time I got one, I cleaned the seed, put three toothpicks in a circle around it, and set it in a glass of water to see if it would grow. I would not. Sad. Do I remember correctly that they irradiate them so they won’t make a plant?

TheseTruths

I grew one using that method once, out of curiosity. It worked.

Happy go lucky

One sprouted for me after I threw an entire “expired” avocado in the compost. I later found it sprouted and growing a root. I think you could bury an avocado in a flower pot to see if it would sprout, that would be easier than the method you tried at least.

Barb Meier

True, each day I was making sure just the botom part was underwater and for all I know, I could have had it upsidedown. I put the smallest part down and the biggest above water.

Did you know that vegans won’t eat figs? Because every time you eat one, you are consuming insects:

“Wasps pollinate the majority of commercially grown figs. Yes, edible figs do include at least one dead female wasp. However, it is not quite the urban legend that fruits contain insect meat. When a female wasp dies within an edible fig, an enzyme known as ficin in the fig breaks down her carcass into protein.”

As a follow-up to Thursday’s appointment, I went in to get some X-rays of my f’d-up shoulder to see if there was permanent damage — being that it was taking forever-and-a-day to heal.

This wasn’t very exciting, being just me and the technician and no real opportunities for disassembly……but I do have two anecdotes.

We would eventually do four views. The first three had a sensor plate encased in a wall-mounted holder, with the X-ray source pointing through the shoulder area. I noticed that the holder would shake every time the X-ray was on and asked why that was.

The technician’s English wasn’t great, but the understanding I got was that there was a grid in the wall bracket, and it was dithered to avoid being “printed” onto the sensor. One way this made sense to me would be if the grid were used to spread the beam. If anyone can confirm this, please leave a comment.

The next anecdote relates to why I am not yet asleep. The fourth exposure pointed down through the shoulder onto the sensor laying on a table. My arm was painfully extended across the table — sort of like, “let’s re-create your injury but get it on film this time.” This was about 10 hours ago and the shoulder still hurts — modern medicine at its finest.

Sorry about your shoulder injury and pain.

Aleve has helped my ‘bad foot’ which has numbness and occasional severe enough pain that I can’t walk well on it.

That foot was broken when it was run over by Sally Q’s power wheelchair, was broken again when stepping off a sidewalk. That leg had varicose vein surgery, and that ankle had frequent sprains and isn’t pretty with multiple surface purple broken veins all over it.)

Taking Aleve Arthritis Formula took the most recent bout of pain away overnight…so I take one now at the first twinge and it’s doing ok.

What hurts me so, is seeing people tell gender-confused girls that they can simply ‘go get new breasts’ if they regret their double mastectomy. 

As if a sack of silicone is equal to the amazing, complicated web of milk ducts that a female breast contains. 

As if a breast is simply cosmetic, something for men to ogle, and not something with a very real biological purpose. 

As if the woman’s future babies access to the wonderful food and comfort of breastfeeding is simply forgotten, irrelevant. 

As if we can just throw away our previous body parts and just replace them again at will, with fakes, with inferior copies – and have that not affect our lives in any way. 

Our breasts are not mere eye candy, and they are in NO way comparable to a silicone implant. There is NO way to get your breasts back once they’re removed. Telling women and teenage girls that they can is nothing short of criminal.

DEMONIC.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Saw something today that struck me as increasingly demonic in the music world. I’m going to use a spoiler so people can just ignore this unless they want to expose themselves to it.

More Music World Occult – Ignore Unless Researching

There are various Japanese girl groups that are called “idols” – they tend to be highly choreographed singers, but they’re mostly “cute”, “pretty”, “artsy”, etc.

Apart from the “idols” aspect, not too suspect.

Example: Older group – Perfume

Compare to American stuff.

There’s a recent Taylor Swift concert that has her dancing on top of a big black cube in the middle of the audience. Lots of people saw the Islamic aspect, but really, not too edgy compared to a lot of acts.

Here:

Well, now there’s are Japanese “idol” groups that are going toward heavy metal, and in this case (“Baby Metal”) it really looks overtly demonic, even having the girls sitting in Baphomet-style chairs, but with a “fox god” theme (very Japanese).

Old gods much? Yikes!

An interview with the group shows that as people, these gals are highly separated from the appearance and the message, which is weird. They seem like “nice girls” who do weird death metal girl group as a child acting/singing gig.

The lyrics tend not to be too bad, sometimes almost “positive”, but sometimes…..

In general, the whole concept seems disturbing.

Right now, the world is full of demons, and old gods, in my opinion. They have gained a foothold and they are using it.

There is a passage in the Bible that I think is very applicable right now.

Matthew 12:43-45
43 “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest, and finds none. 44 Then he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it empty, swept, and put in order. 45 Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first. So shall it also be with this wicked generation.”

I think it isn’t only that an unclean spirit has to leave for the “house” of the soul to be empty. I think it is possible that the utter lack of God and/or religion can be an “empty house,” and that spirits can enter then, and dwell.

(Note to Steve: I don’t think this applies across the board; mostly to empty heads and hearts. But there are an awful lot of those)

We have “emptied” an entire generation of people of God. There is no prayer in schools, no public expression of religion in many places (not all), and a general lack of meaning in people’s lives. They are an empty vessel. Who knows what can move in there?

The worst ones are people like Taylor Swift, who “appears” guileless and dumb as a post (my opinion). They are the most useful to the evil ones for their purposes.

Barb Meier

Speaking of demons, today checking my family connections on Facebook, Breyer Model Horses popped up. They had a nice looking horse model for Christmas; however, it also has horns. Sigh… I commented on their FB post asking if those are black horns. No response yet. How demonic, how sad.

I’m pretty sure these are OK – that they’re just “reinhorses” styled after reindeer. Mildly pagan Christmas tradition – zero risk, NOT occult.

Yeah, I started to go there, but realized that it would be adding cats in a non-symmetrical, cascading way. Only the MINIMUM number had the correct symmetry to make the “cats who see three cats” the only kind of cat.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Important question – if they shut down your blog, do you want them to give you your content to recreate the blog elsewhere? Or are you OK with losing your prior posts? There are blogs they took down and allowed back, but they can never be trusted, IMO. Also, you may have to fight to get the content back.

pat frederick

all of my opens are stored on a word file on an external drive…i can retrieve them any time. they’re not lost. the comments are.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

OK. That’s helpful, but I can tell you that you would be able to export EVERYTHING from your blog if they let you back in, and that should be a demand, if they shut you down permanently – that you want all your information, including media and comments.

Very disconcerting to hear this pat. While it’s nice to have you, it should be under better circumstance. We depend on the idea of having a place to jump off too in time of crises and since we are often under attack we look to our sister sites to be our refuge in uncertain times. That they are gunning you guys down is cause for worry. Hopefully you get relief. You certainly deserve it. No one who lives under the first amendment can think your site is subversive in the least. It’s a small community place that promotes solidarity in troubling times. A place of prayers, good wishes and reflection on the happenings of the day. That someone would bother such a small place over some woke trivialities is unfathomable and cruel. Especially given to how much heart, time and effort goes into setting up such a site and contributing to it every day filling it with small meaningful treasures.

Hopefully no one has been left stranded and they know where to go while the site is down, be it here or one of our other sister sites.

The little monsters are so petty and getting desperate. Be nice if we all had a moar secure refuge.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

This is an EXCELLENT point, para!

Here is the concern.

If they ARREST me and shut down the blog, we depend on people regrouping at our sister sites as the primary initial response.

Dear reporters and journalists of the Corporate News Sphere:

People make their choices about where they live and move and have their being within the corporate news sphere. For some, there’s no such thing as a deal breaker within that sphere.

There’s a reason Glenn Greenwald and Tucker Carlson got higher visibility and credibility and success once they shed their corporate overseers because they insisted on telling the truth and would not allow their mouths to be muzzled. Turns out they didn’t need The Intercept or Fox News to fly successfully on their own.

Unfortunately, not everybody can yet take this bold step.

So many who now question where the corporate news ‘ship’ they are on is headed are keeping their heads down and going along with what their told, saying what they are told say and staying away from what they’re told to stay away from. But they’re not happy. How could they be?

Its hard to posture as a truth-telling rebel when you’ve sold your soul and offered up the control of your mouth to people you can now see are completely evil.

Because deep down in your heart, when you are alone and honest with yourself…you can admit you’re just another cog in their machine, grinding out the propaganda. And you’re too scared to make that move you know you need to make.

I want you to know…you are not alone. Change is sweeping this country and its going to sweep the old order of things away. Musk is only one of the signs of what’s coming. Actual real free speech that’s broken away from corporate advertising control.

He can’t be bought and he can’t be intimidated. X is going to become what every real journalist ever wanted: a platform where they can say what they really think and cover the news without fear or favor.

This platform has massive power for those who know how to utilize it. But I see too many still mentally wedded to the corporate mindset, who can’t see what’s coming.

They used a harebrained MMFA bullshit fraud as an attempt to reassert control via a coordinated advertiser boycott.. Its blown up on them. Its all going to come out in court. Musk won’t settle. As he is making crystal clear, this not about money.

If you think they will ever get that control of this app back that they enjoyed under the previous ownership, you are deluding yourself.

Over the past 3 years, you are now fully cognizant of how your byline and name was used to sell outright falsehoods to your readers and your viewers. Not just about Hunter Biden or his real laptop, or COVID treatments/vaccines/lockdowns/masks and so on. About the many weird/strange things involved in that 2020 election. On many different subjects. You went along. You pushed what you told to push, knowing it wasn’t true, covering over the very real questions that needed to be asked and investigated.

So.

I’d encourage you to quit putting off making that choice that confronts you quite often in your conscience.

There’s no going back.

What is happening cannot be stopped. Corporate obfuscation may be successful at slowing it down, but the trendlines are clear at this point.

You can go down to the bottom with the corrupt corporate news ship or you can bail out now and swim for it. You can continue being a laughingstock of much of the country, churning out the lies and the current fake narratives in fashion at the moment with your bosses…or you can do something for yourself and regain your honor and your integrity.

The choice to act to get out, or to stay where you are is yours.

But I would caution you: you may not have all that much time remaining to you to exercise this choice.

Wait too long…and it’ll be made for you.

You’ve seen others jump the corporate news ship and do just fine. Hell, you’ve seen people angrily tossed over the side by their corporate bosses, and you can clearly see they’re doing just fine.

Overcome your fear. I promise you…it will be worth it.

Take bold action and discover there are millions who will support you for telling the only thing they ever really wanted: the Truth.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. Things are changing!

No.

The title of the graph, at the very top, says “Medicare: COVID vaccine givent in 2021 or 2022″

Maybe Steve didn’t make the graph? I don’t know. I just know leftists, and that’s the first thing they would attack.

Wonder what the population represented is. I see Medicare. So it is folks enrolled in Medicare, Nationally? Or a narrower population?

PAVACA

http://www.igor-chudov.com/ presents his own analysis of the NZ data. It appears that his conclusion is that the data set is flawed in several ways and therefore should be looked at with a “side eye.”
While apparently there are “gaps” in the data set, Yours Truly differs with Mr. Chudov in one of his conclusions — that the NZ nursing home data is flawed because (paraphrase) “the elderly people in the nursing homes were going to die anyway” reasoning.
On the other hand, the Steve Kirsch presentation on the data set ALSO brings in the corroborating figures from the US Medicare database.
So, while there may indeed be “gaps” in the NZ data set, the overall conclusion by Mr. Kirsch, IMO, still stands — that the COVID-19 “vaccines” are deadly, and especially to people over age 65.

Very interesting post, Steve! Good stuff.

I have an example of how the pronunciation of language changed things in my own family tree, I think.

Part of my family came here from Germany. The name was spelled (in Germany) as Fruh. When they got here, it became variously Frey, Free, Fry.

All of those spellings must have sounded basically the same, as spelling in colonial times was mostly phonetic.

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.
