On this day and every day –

God is in Control
. . . and His Grace is Sufficient, so . . .
Keep Looking Up


Hopefully, every Sunday, we can find something here that will build us up a little . . . give us a smile . . . and add some joy or peace, very much needed in all our lives.

“This day is holy to the Lord your God;
do not mourn nor weep.” . . .
“Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet,
and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow,
for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”


Build Each Other Up

What is edification, and why is it so important in the lives of believers? The word used for “edification” in the New Testament is oikodomé, which translates literally as “the building of a house.” The word appears in the King James Bible only about 20 times, and then only in the New Testament. It is translated into phrases such as “building up” in more modern translations. Interestingly, its usage is also limited to Paul’s letters. The dictionary definition of edify is “to instruct and improve, especially in moral and religious knowledge.” According to Vine’s Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, the word indicates the promotion of “spiritual growth and development of character of believers, by teaching or by example, suggesting such spiritual progress as the result of patient labor.”

Vine’s definition captures the meaning rather well. Edification is more than just encouragement; it includes any activity that results in more Christlikeness, either in oneself or in another believer. Edification may be individual or corporate. Individually, one can edify oneself by participating in the various spiritual disciplines (Bible intake, private prayer, private worship, etc).

Generally, however, the concept of edification in the New Testament is applied to the corporate body (mutual edification). Mutual edification involves helping one another along the road to Christlikeness, and it requires the participation of all members of the church. Teaching and preaching improve our understanding of God; encouragement promotes conduct that develops Christlike character. When we exhort one another and hold one another accountable, we are prompted to engage in activities that promote godliness. Accountability means we lovingly check each other’s spiritual progress. Christlike service ensures that the needs of the church are met, and true fellowship is the interaction we have with each other on a deeper spiritual level. The corporate nature of edification cannot be overemphasized. Without mutual edification, the church becomes a collection of spiritual weaklings, a perpetual nursery for spiritual infants, rather than a body (1 Corinthians 12:27) or a building (Ephesians 2:20-22).

Paul tells us in Ephesians 4:12 and repeatedly in 1 Corinthians 14:1-26 that edification is one of the reasons that spiritual gifts are given to believers. In 2 Corinthians, Paul states no fewer than three times that the “building up” of the church is the reason for his apostolic authority (10:8, 12:19, and 13:10). Paul’s goal was to edify. In 1 Corinthians 10:23 and Ephesians 4:16, he states that the church must work to edify itself for the overall health of each member. Finally, each of us is commanded to engage in edification (Romans 14:19; 15:2; Ephesians 4:29; 1 Thessalonians 5:11).

The church exists in community. Throughout the New Testament, the language is rich with communal imagery. The church is described as Christ’s flock, His body, and His building. None of these metaphors denote an individual entity. Paul expounds on this concept in 1 Corinthians 12:12-31, describing the interdependence of the parts of the human body and the necessity of each. He goes so far as to say that we’re actually “members of one another” in Ephesians 4:25 (NKJV).

An analogy is instructive here. The Gothic arch was a very popular structure in medieval architecture. The primary advantage of the arch was its strength and stability, which it derived from the fact that each stone in the arch leaned on the one beside it. This system of mutual support enabled the construction of much larger structures than might otherwise have been built. The Gothic arch could be a symbol of the church. The very fact that we need one another gives the church its strength. And the minute we decide to stop leaning on one another, we fall.
https://www.gotquestions.org/Christian-edification.html


For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men. Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may build up another. Romans 14:17-19

Do you hear the shout? Is that the voice of the archangel? And the blast of God’s trumpet? Is it the last trump?

Are you ready? Am I?

Maranatha!

Judge Strikes Down Federal Ban on Handgun Sales for 18 to 20-Year-Olds

On Friday, Judge Thomas S. Kleeh issued a decision striking down the federal prohibition against 18 to 20-year-olds purchasing handguns.

The plaintiffs in the case are Steven Robert Brown, Benjamin Weekley, the Second Amendment Foundation, and the West Virginia Citizens Defense League.

Judge Kleeh, a Donald Trump appointee, is Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia.

Kleeh put the case in context:

“This case requires the Court to assess the protected right of the people under the Second Amendment to the Constitution to keep and bear arms. U.S. Const. amend. II. Plaintiffs Robert Brown (“Brown”) and Benjamin Weekley (“Weekley”), individuals, are “law abiding, responsible adult citizens who wish to purchase handguns.”…Brown and Weekley are citizens of West Virginia and the United States of America and are between the ages of eighteen and twenty-one. Brown and Weekley, as law-abiding, responsible adult citizens, would purchase handguns and handgun ammunition from Federal Firearms Licensees (“FFLs”) but for the right proscribed by 18 U.S.C. §§ 922(b)(1) and (c)(1).”

He went on to explain that Brown and Weekley had each tried to buy a handgun but were “refused the sales because they were under twenty-one years of age.”

Kleeh noted that the plaintiffs sought summary judgment against the statute while the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), Attorney General Merrick Garland, and ATF Director Steven Dettelbach sought to have the case dismissed.

He sided with the plaintiffs and quoted extensively from Bruen (2022) to show the manner at which he arrived at his decision.

Here is one of Kleeh’s quotes from the Bruen decision:

“To justify its regulation, the government may not simply posit that the regulation promotes an important interest…To demonstrate the regulation of that conduct is within the bounds of the Second Amendment, ‘the government must demonstrate that the regulation is consistent with the Nation’s historic tradition of firearm regulation. Only if a firearm regulation is consistent with the Nation’s historical tradition may a court conclude that the individual’s conduct falls outside the Second Amendment’s ‘unqualified command.’”

He pointed to the overarching test the Supreme Court of the United States set forth in Bruen, “The test that we set forth in Heller and apply today requires courts to assess whether modern firearms regulations are consistent with the Second Amendment’s text and historical understanding.”

In siding with the plaintiffs, Kleeh enjoined the ATF, Garland, and Dettelbach from enforcing a ban on handgun purchases against 18 to 20-year-olds who are “otherwise qualified” to make such purchases.

The case is Brown v. ATF, No. 1:22-cv-00080 in the United States District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia.

The Bruen SCOTUS decision comes to the rescue again.

I don’t know how restaurants will stay in business if people can’t afford their food.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. Another sector destroyed by the Obama left.

I’m going to lay all this at Obama’s feet – not Biden.

Barb Meier

I completely agree and remember at the end of Obama’s 2nd term, Michelle said the lives of Americans would never be the same again. She was right. The silent majority is waking up, not woke. We are pushing back against the abuse.

kalbokalbs

The only time DW and I eat out, is when traveling away from home.

When we do eat out.

  1. No appetizers, deserts, AND our beverage is water with a slice of lemon.
  2. Commonly, we’ll spit the main course, getting an extra plate.
  3. Waiter gets tipped, as if we ordered two meals.  🙂 
Aubergine

Well, one thing to never do in a restaurant now is order a drink other than water. That’s where they are trying to make up their expenses. An iced tea or coffee is $3 or more. It costs pennies to make. Same with soda.

Order water. Ask for some lemon. Add some sugar from the table, and voila, lemonade!

pgroup2

Cute. But somebody has to pay the overhead expenses. If not the drink consumers, then who? The entree eaters?

It all comes out of the same source – the price paid for the meal.

Aubergine

Of course, the price of food has gone up. I know that. But let me give you an example of what shouldn’t be happening, if a business wants to keep its customers.

We have two diners in our town. Both serve a very similar menu. However, one has reasonably raised their prices some, and the other has almost doubled theirs. The only difference is the one that doubled the prices has a full bar.

Why has the price of food not doubled in the other diner, if the food prices and overhead (water, power, similar number of employees, etc.) is basically the same? And their food is actually better, more homemade, and less pre-packaged stuff like salad dressing.

What I suspect is the owners of one want more money from all the rich people who have moved into the area, while the other one values their regular customers more. Guess which diner I now exclusively frequent?

kalbokalbs

So what?

All I see in drink, appetizer and desert prices ARE Pure Greed. I’ll pass.

pgroup2

So you think inflation doesn’t affect them?

Come on – you’re much smarter than that.

kalbokalbs

Looking around here. Had not noticed inflation mentioned. I spose inflation effects everyone, Except Feds. They either print more money. Oh wait…  😎 

pat frederick

wow…we must be old school. we maybe eat out 4 times A MONTH!
we do have a favorite tradition though. every December we treat ourselves to a nice meal at a Texas Roadhouse type place and leave a cash tip double the price of the meal. we leave a small note saying we cannot afford a tip for the meal, but wanted the person to enjoy a Happy Birthday and a Merry Christmas on us.

kalbokalbs

Very nice tradition.

Get it from the NSA. They keep everything.

Yeah, sure. They’ll jump right on it.

Pull my other finger.

I’d guess Trump’s lawyers, at a minimum, have screen shots of the account.

If the lawyers don’t have screen shots, they should be fired.

Laura Loomer will have it all.

I’d bet my hat Laura Loomer has the whole thing screenshotted and archived.

iirc she did post something like that

I think I saw it, too.

pat frederick

went looking for it and all i saw were stories of denial with the added caveat of what-abouts, as in what about Ginny Thomas. they are getting their ducks in a row for this one.

pgroup2

Well, what about Ginny Thomas?

The left’s only beef with Ginny [which they’ll never admit] is that she married a black man. That is a special kind of offensive to the creators of the Klan.

pat frederick

they claim she is a major Trump supporter who is “probably” influencing her husband’s rulings to slant Trump’s way.

pgroup2

I know what they claim. I also know the real reason why they hate her. It has nothing to do with Trump; on the street level of the donkey party in California they were mumbling about the Thomas’s ‘color differential’ during his confirmation hearings.

That girl sure is annoying.

Almost no one ever does.

While in the Philippines, May-July. Handed a few superb videos and documents to, two young RNs. Have known them for decades and funded their Nurse training / certification.

Videos (Cole, Kory and the like) splained how deadly the Injections ARE AND how easily Covid could be treated. <<<>>> IF only effective treatments were not essentially banned.

No one we know in the Philippines, has been willing to discuss the Global Covid Scam.

  • Incredibly sad. The blinders folks willing have on.
  • No different than my siblings here in the States. Four will not engage in any discussion. The other, politely AND firmly, tells me go away. She has the facts.

Globally the masses, refuse to acknowledge Global governments have betrayed their citizens…Mandating Their Deaths. 1. Enforcing ineffective treatment. 2. Denying effective treatment. 3. Mandating Poisonous Death Jabs.

pgroup2

No one looks at movie sets literally. We look at them the way they are portrayed to us – as real things. Buildings, distant mountains, etc.

It’s hard to look at our world the way it is. We are the focus of a Mission Impossible [the TV series] set or The Sting betting room set. We just don’t want to believe we were scammed.

Not only are we not in Kansas any more, Dorothy; we ain’t ever going back to Kansas ’cause it doesn’t exist any more.

Cuppa Covfefe

Can’t trust the sets, either.

Many, MANY moons ago we went on a backstage tour of WB studios, and they had the set of “Friends” (IIRC) which had foreshortening built in (heyyyyy, Ronda…) so the room looked larger than what it was….

Even Hollyweird’s “real” hardware/buildings aren’t real…..

Deplorable Patriot

This is what I’ve been trying to explain for almost three years.

They died of ‘died suddenly‘.

Then are immediately hit with huge 7.7 Earthquake. Is anyone doing the math on this?

Let me get this straight…

The Philippines Launches an investigation into the excessive 327,000 deaths of its citizens (vaccines?) recently and now they’ve been hit with a 7.6 Magnitude Earthquake Causing a Potential Tsunami? 

Let me get this straight. You (the author of that tweet) think someone was able to cause a massive earthquake on cue? 

Wiki:

The Philippines lies along the Pacific Ring of Fire, which causes the country to have frequent seismic and volcanic activity. Many earthquakes of smaller magnitude occur very regularly due to the meeting of major tectonic plates in the region. The largest was the 1918 Celebes Sea earthquake with Mw8.3.

para59r

One can spend a full day posting links that claim such, many with purported govt sources or fill a room full of books on the subject. At this point it would be foolish to think it can’t be done and foolish to think it’s not done.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tectonic_weapon

https://pakobserver.net/haarp-technology-trukeye-earthquake-thanatology/

Inducing an earthquake is likely easier than we know given technology in existance or thought to be in existence. The concern has been real enough that treaties have been signed demanding such technology not be used for both weather modification and geo engineering. The USA who was leading the technology in this area was one of the very last to sign on the weather modification treaty in 1977 and Russia one of the very first to sign off on it 1974. Do you trust that they ever stopped developing the tech? Do think it may of been evolved to something that can be sold and used by rouge actors?

short list of links on treaties… there are tons of people who have valid concerns on this subject since it became an issue prior to 1974.

That mankind has produced an earthquake on cue? There has been lot of speculation over the years, and lots of attempts to control weather events, but those are not evidence that it can be so easily done.

Is there direct evidence that the scientific community believes man can cause an earthquake whenever desired? (Not treaties, not speculation, not cloud seeding, but actual earthquakes.)

From the Wiki link:

Magical and religious practices to control the weather are attested in a variety of cultures. In ancient India, it is said that yajna or Vedic rituals of chanting mantras and offerings were performed by rishis to bring sudden bursts of rainfall in rain starved regions. Some Indigenous Americans, like some Europeans, had rituals which they believed could induce rain. The Finnish people, on the other hand, were believed by others to be able to control the weather. As a result, Vikings refused to take Finns on their oceangoing raids. Remnants of this superstition lasted into the twentieth century, with some ship crews being reluctant to accept Finnish sailors.

The early modern era saw people observe that during battles the firing of cannons and other firearms often initiated precipitation.

In Greek mythologyIphigenia was offered as a human sacrifice to appease the wrath of the goddess Artemis, who had becalmed the Achaean fleet at Aulis at the beginning of the Trojan War. In Homer‘s OdysseyAeolus, keeper of the winds, bestowed Odysseus and his crew with a gift of the four winds in a bag. However, the sailors opened the bag while Odysseus slept, looking for booty (money), and as a result, were blown off course by the resulting gale.[37] In ancient Rome, the lapis manalis was a sacred stone kept outside the walls of Rome in a temple of Mars. When Rome suffered from drought, the stone was dragged into the city.[38] The Berwick witches of Scotland were found guilty of using black magic to summon storms to murder King James VI of Scotland by seeking to sink the ship upon which he travelled.[39] Scandinavian witches allegedly claimed to sell the wind in bags or magically confined into wooden staves; they sold the bags to seamen who could release them when becalmed…

In todays fast moving fields of technology, stuff like HAARP is already ancient.

TheseTruths

https://haarp.gi.alaska.edu/faq

Are There Any Long-term Effects of Ionospheric Heating?

No. Since the ionosphere is inherently a turbulent medium that is being both stirred up and renewed by the sun, artificially induced effects are quickly obliterated. Depending on the height within the ionosphere where the effect is originally produced, these effects are no longer detectable after times ranging from less than a second to 10 minutes.

A good analogy to this process is dropping a stone in a fast-moving stream. The ripples caused by the stone are quickly lost in the rapidly moving water and are completely undetectable a little farther downstream. A UAF Geophysical Institute scientist compared HAARP to putting an “immersion heater in the Yukon River.”

Can HAARP Control or Manipulate the Weather?

No. Radio waves in the frequency ranges that HAARP transmits are not absorbed in either the troposphere or the stratosphere—the two levels of the atmosphere that produce Earth’s weather. Since there is no interaction, there is no way to control the weather.

The HAARP system is basically a large radio transmitter. Radio waves interact with electrical charges and currents, and do not significantly interact with the troposphere . 

Further, if the ionospheric storms caused by the sun itself don’t affect the surface weather, there is no chance that HAARP can either. Electromagnetic interactions only occur in the near vacuum of the rarefied, but electrically charged region of the atmosphere above about 60-80 km (a little over 45 miles), known as the ionosphere. The ionosphere is created and continuously replenished as the sun’s radiation interacts with the highest levels of the Earth’s atmosphere.

Cuppa Covfefe

Not to mention the fact that the energy levels used/created by HAARP are FAR below that needed to do ANY major (or even minor) weather modification.

10,000 or more (four orders of magnitude) too small.

para59r

The Navy took their toys and ran away from HAARP before 2015. No one knows what they had there before they left facility with the University at Fairbanks. Meanwhile are we to think that science and technology is static and never progresses?

TheseTruths

Again, there’s the rub. We don’t know something, so anything becomes possible, to some. Rampant speculation without evidence becomes the order of the day.

Cuppa Covfefe

Ya Cannae break the laws of physics…

The amount of energy required is just too much. Plain and simple.

And were the MIL in possession of an energy source that large (say, a miniature sun), it would leave a “fingerprint” that could NOT be hidden…..

pgroup2

Scotty lives!!!

para59r

Your parroting the HAARP people. I’m sure they’ll say nothing to see here. Meanwhile HAARP went away over twenty years ago after too much exposure. Elements of it have been reported showing up in other areas, but by this time HAARP technology or at least what was wanted out of HAARP technology has likey shrunken down, or changed all together with even better safe guards surrounding it.

Anyway, this is a conspiracy blog, so I guess there’s no harm in allowing you your conspiracy that this stuff doesn’t exist. 😁
Meanwhile the earthquake in the Philippines is another indicator that maybe it does when you time it with their far reaching decision to investigate all those who died suddenly.

TheseTruths

Your parroting the HAARP people.

There’s that rub, again. NO ONE can be believed, so we have to believe the most improbable, unlikely theories that anyone can come up with.

Think Think Think…

Exactly.

para59r

Why improbable? Are there not seismic waves? not to mention many other types of waves all that exert energy, Can’t satellites see fault lines? are there not such things called lasers? Not that anyone of those are used per say, for there are countless technologies that can play a roll many of which are buried in some research facility never to see the light of day and many of those technologies can be folded together for a desired result.

And of course they are not going to tell you what they are up to if it’s unethical. Which means we are left to our imaginations to figure out what that might be.

Maybe you do not wished to be labeled a conspiracy theorist, me eh.. don’t mind.

TheseTruths

Back to the original beef I expressed with this. The people who believe this stuff need to come out and say it. No more naming two events and going “Hmmm.” No more “stupid” emojis like 🤪😜 when putting forth an important theory. No more indirectness. They need to own their theory and say, “I believe the Philippine earthquake was caused by man for the express purpose of taking the attention off of the investigation into deaths from the COVID vax.” And then they need to be ready to defend the position when the inevitable questions come.

But I believe they know they can’t defend it, so they resort to indirectness and innuendo. And a lot of people lap that up. Then the defense of their argument becomes “we don’t know what *they* are capable of.”

Alrighty, then. Case closed. ANYTHING is possible, common sense is out the window, and we become vulnerable to any charlatan with an “interesting” theory.

pgroup2

Stupid emojis, for the win.

 😂 

scott467

The emojis always win… they’ve got nothing to lose 😂

para59r

Your following a static path.
So yeah the hammer approach will not work. But what are we trying to accomplish? Now we know X, Y and Z about our target and we can approach it here, here and there. We won’t need near as much power to accomplish our aim, we just need a new device to transfer some of the power from the older device, or heck we can just scrap the old device all together and just keep a few of it’s concepts. That should be how an engineer thinks and likely is…

TheseTruths

I’m not familiar with that organization and don’t have time to research it now. I go back to my previous question:

Is there direct evidence that the scientific community believes man can cause an earthquake whenever desired? (Not treaties, not speculation, not cloud seeding, but actual earthquakes.)

By that I mean I would like to see someone providing irrefutable evidence that a particular event was caused by man. Not speculation, not fear-mongering, not tying cloud seeding to earthquakes, but actual evidence. Because if that is possible, then it is almost as serious as the threat of nuclear war, and it should not be rearing its head only when we think it politically expedient (as, for example, to cover up a vax investigation). If it were possible, it would be a major threat at all times, at the whim of whoever can make it happen.

para59r

I think that last part is all that anyone can say at this point because yeah, Presidents, Senators, Generals and lots of others could lose a lot over this stuff getting exposed to the extent that it’s provable in a court of law. And all those people would just be the trigger men. Not the ones giving the order. We can’t prove the election was stolen or that Epstein killed himself.. however that goes… We are talking about something that has world treaties against it going back to seventies. Anything surrounding this stuff is going to be classified from the classifers and misdirection will surround it along with the technologies that developed it all roads leading to such will be closely watched and guarded. Is all that conjecture? Yep… but it’s not made up from whole cloth.

TheseTruths

The third and fourth links lead to a page that says they no longer exist.

I did not find the word “earthquake” in the other two links.

para59r

Imagine that, they don’t exist. Should I send you links on disinfo/govt censoring?

Yeah, not running down all the rabbit holes either. The science is certainly there, the capabilities too. There’s likely a dozen if not hundreds of ways to exploit the crust of the earth through a variety of methods, but you can bet there are layers of protection to limit exposure the same way they protect child trafficking by elites. We are lucky there is so much intensity in searching out about COVID and the Jabs or we’d not know half of what we know now and still no one is getting tossed in jail yet. Same intensity is not there for earthquakes, or we might be closer to answers.

I have yet to see it. Yes, they have layers of protection, but I think our military and others would know about this and would be investigating it and stopping it. I do not believe we are living under the threat of some entity producing an earthquake at will.

As I remember, this discussion came up before here, and some of our scientists pooh-poohed the idea that man can wield that much power.

When this blog first began, our scientists had zero to little appreciation for nanotechnology. But someone not near as smart was surveying with a wider lens (mostly cause he can’t get the narrow one to work) and kept insisting it was a big deal. Guess what? In the meantime, the strides that have been made in the nano sciences have been happening in all of the sciences. It’s infinity down there and it’s infinity up here and her name is Adita and she’s thousands of years known. Many of science types get trapped in their niche because there’s just too much to see to be bothered with more and she’s known too. Her name is Dita.

The amount of energy required to create/modify a hurricane or tropical storm, to trigger a volcano, or to cause an earthquake is more than the total combined output of all energy sources on earth, including nuclear warheads.

This has been discussed ad nauseum on many climate/science/geology/physics and other sites. It it just not possible. We are at least FOUR orders of magnitude short.

On 2 December 2023, at 22:37 PST (14:37 UTC), a magnitude 7.6 earthquake occurred off the island of Mindanao in the Philippines. The shallow subduction earthquake killed at least two people, left four injured and another nine missing.

Tectonic setting[edit]

See also: Subduction tectonics of the Philippines

The Philippine Trench which runs east of the Philippines islands represents a major subduction zone where the Philippine Sea Plate subducts westwards. At its southern portion, it runs north–south from the eastern coast of Mindanao to the northern part of Halmahera Island.[2] The convergence rate along the trench varies from 3.2–5.4 cm (1.3–2.1 in) per year. Large earthquakes occurring along the Philippine Trench are limited in records although two large earthquakes were recorded in 1897 (Ms 7.3) and 1924 (Ms 8.2) with little seismological characteristics known. Some large intraslab earthquakes have been associated with the trench including the Mw 7.6 normal-faulting earthquake of 1975 and a reverse-faulting Mw 7.6 shock in 2012.[3] The segment involved in the 2 December 2023 earthquake was associated with a magnitude 7.5 earthquake in 1921 which produced a tsunami.[4]

Earthquake[edit]

The United States Geological Survey reported the earthquake had a magnitude of 7.6 and a maximum Modified Mercalli intensity of VIII (Severe).[5] The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) said it had a magnitude of 7.4 and that it measured VII (Destructive) on the PHIVOLCS Earthquake Intensity Scale in Tandag.[6]

The earthquake occurred as a result of shallow oblique-thrust faulting likely along the subduction interface of the Philippine Trench. At this location, the Philippine Sea Plate moves west-northwest at a rate of about 103 mm (4.1 in) per year with respect to the Sunda Plate. A finite fault model suggests rupture occurred around an elliptical area measuring 80 km × 80 km (50 mi × 50 mi). Maximum slip was concentrated around the epicenter, although slightly up-dip, which was estimated at up to 1.8 m (5 ft 11 in).[5]

PHIVOLCS recorded over 819 aftershocks,[6][7] and within a day of the earthquake, 113 aftershocks above Mw 4.5 were recorded by the USGS; the aftershock sequence occurred southeast of the mainshock.[1] The largest aftershock, measuring 6.9 struck on 3 December, occurring north of the aftershock sequence.[8]

TheseTruths

One issue I have with these kinds of theories is that their advocates tiptoe around them. They present them with innuendo that aims to herd people into thinking they’re probably true without providing a shred of evidence for how that might be the case.

It happens all the time. Instead of directly saying, “I think that, because the Philippines is investigating COVID vax deaths, some entity caused them to have a major earthquake,” no, they present two facts and intimate that they are related, with zero (0) proof whatsoever. And they never explain how the thing they are alleging could have been brought about. 

If there is evidence that mankind can produce a major, targeted earthquake at will and on cue, then I’d like to see it, but evidence of that kind is never presented. I could name a number of other cases where this has happened, and still happens. It reminds me of uncivilized peoples who define events through the prism of superstition because they don’t have the scientific knowledge to understand them.

IMO, as long as we allow ourselves to think others have this kind of power, then we remain in an inferior position to them. We assign ourselves the role of victims who must passively watch events unfold.

When you have a large percentage of the population, across all demographics, dying for no apparent reason — and everybody knows the one thing they all have in common is they took the vaxx and multiple booster shots — well, the gubermint can’t just come out and SAY that’s why they all died.

Because that would be bad.

So they deployed what might be called a Jedi mind trick, and for some reason, it worked.

And it leaves me feeling a lot like Ripley. Pretty much all the time now.

I don’t think they had to trick people themselves.I think they just used human nature, and its incredible propensity for denial in the face of fear.

Denial is such an incredibly powerful force. Confronted with a reality that is just too painful to bear, the human mind will just shut it out. I have some experience with this; my childhood was so bad that until my late twenties I had no memories from before I was twelve. I mean literally none. I have some now, because of the help of a lot of great people.

So I think people just can’t face that they may have killed their loved ones, themselves, and maybe their children’s future children with their insane belief in a government-ginned-up so-called epidemic that was not real, to the point where they allowed poison to be injected into them. They just pretend it isn’t real.

Here’s some science in it:

https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/vitamin-d-and-vitamin-k#TOC_TITLE_HDR_4&nbsp;

“Vitamin D is important to the general health of a person regardless of Covid-19. With that said, high-normal levels of Vitamin D have shown improved survival from Covid-19 infection. It is advisable to have Vitamin D levels of 50 to 70 ng/mL in order to optimize the function of the immune system. My preferred method of Vitamin D supplementation is the prescription strength Vitamin D3 50000 iu once a week. Another acceptable approach is daily Vitamin D3 5000 iu which is available over the counter. It is important to periodically check Vitamin D 25-OH levels to prevent overdosage.”

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5613455/&nbsp;

“From my memory, I read that if you are taking D for treatment of any respiratory issue then taking Vitamin K3 is advised, since higher doses of Vitamin D can cause a calcification of heart tissue.”

Santos warming up his throat and starting to sing
FTA
Disgraced former Rep. George Santos, R-N.Y., is not leaving quietly a day after being expelled from Congress over accusations of fraud, misuse of campaign funds, and falsifying federal records. In a series of Twitter posts, Santos directly targeted some of his former colleagues, criticizing what he deemed as their lack of accountability regarding their alleged illegal actions. 
Among those singled out by Santos were Reps. Nicole Malliotakis, R-N.Y.; Nick Lalota, R-N.Y.; Mike Lawler, R-N.Y.; and Rob Menendez, D-N.J. (son of Sen. Bob Menendez). Notably, these lawmakers were among the leading voices calling for Santos’s ousting
Santos first aimed his criticism at Malliotakis, who voted for his expulsion. Santos pledged to file a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics (distinct from the House Ethics Committee) against Malliotakis for “questionable stock trading” since her appointment to the House Ways and Means Committee. 

“Before joining the committee the congresswoman didn’t have an active trading habit or a high volume stake. The question is, what set of information is she trading with?” Santos questioned. This came hours after Malliotakis defended her vote to expel Santos in a video, further reducing her party’s already slim majority. 
Next, Santos turned his attention to Lawler, a prominent voice among New York’s Republican delegation, who played a key role in ousting Santos. 
Santos accused Lawler of potential money laundering by utilizing Checkmate Strategies, a firm Lawler is affiliated with, to pay for services linked to his congressional campaign. 
“The concerning questions are; is Mr Lawler engaging in laundering money form his campaign to his firm then into his own pocket? I will let the Office of Congressional Ethics be the judge of that,” Santos said

LaLota, also from the New York delegation, became the subject of Santos’s criticism. The expelled congressman accused LaLota of potentially misappropriating public funds from New York taxpayers due to his alleged simultaneous attendance at Hofstra for a JD while working at the state’s board of elections. 
“It has been raised in the local media that congressman Lalota obtained his JD attending Hofstra in day school while he was supposed to be working at the Board of elections at the same time,” Santos claimed. “The questionable actions are? Did Rep Lalota no-show to his tax pay funded job while going to school and if so he can potential have stolen public funds form the tax payers of NY.” 
Santos did not halt there, raising concerns about the Rob Menendez, son of embattled Sen. Menendez, who represents New Jersey’s 8th Congressional District. Santos specifically questioned the younger Menendez’s connections to his father, facing federal indictment over bribery allegations.

I’m glad he’s speaking out. Several thoughts/questions:

Is Santos guilty of what they are alleging? I haven’t followed it enough to know whether he protests his innocence.

But so many are guilty, that to single out one is pure politics, IMO.

Then I think that, if Repub offenses continue to be pointed out, the Dems could very well go after them as well. There is no evidence that Repubs will oust Dems who have broken the rules or committed crimes. So the Repub numbers in the House dwindle, playing right into Dem hands.

Their only religion is GAIA (goddess worship). They don’t believe in GOD at all, as they make themselves to be gods…

Romans 1:21-32:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

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.

J. B. Shurk is fast becoming one of my favorite writers! (Some of us here will have to hold our nose over the first paragraph, but it’s still really good). From the article:

“Since his victory over Hillary Clinton — an unindicted co-conspirator in the Russia collusion fraud against the American people — President Trump has proven himself far more capable and consequential than I ever imagined.  As evidence for how much the Deep State fears this one political outsider above all others, compromised prosecutors, judges, bureaucrats, and lawmakers have done nearly everything they can to deprive him of his property and liberty.  Still, the man stands with a vim and vigor that is inspiring.  Even while fighting one legal battle after the next in courtrooms across the country, he holds back-to-back campaign events and political rallies.  The contrast with Dementia Joe’s lethargic attempts to merely walk across a stage without falling down is stunning.

Watching Trump persevere, despite the forces arrayed against him, is like witnessing President Theodore Roosevelt’s 1910 Paris speech, entitled “Citizenship in a Republic,” come to life: “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly.”  In the arena, President Trump is a sight to behold.”

Mini-update.

What do you get when you pull a 10 year old boy from public school who was under an IEP nearly all of his time there; who is undergoing weekly therapies to correct vision, OT and sensory issues with possible ADHD issues – to homeschool and continue the therapies without the stress of doing them after a full day at school while taking no meds?

Under the former the boy was a B student with an aide’s assistance in math and a C+ student with group aide’s assistance in Reading/English. He was an F student in Science and Social Studies primarily because he could not keep up with note taking in the general classroom because of his vision and OT issues. Despite the IEP he received no assistance from an aide for them. He had also become a distraction to other students with his ADHD symptoms.

Under the latter homeschool format he now has a 90+ average in all subjects while performing at an advanced curriculum pace than the public school. With the use of the curriculum’s videos on his Chromebook and guidance from parents he now does his daily work on his own. He takes quizzes daily and a comprehensive test at the end of each segment. He can be taught in his peak attention periods. When he becomes fidgety he can take a break and go outside to play basketball or ride his bike for awhile. He now eats as he should, which was a continuing problem at school. His parents have set aside time for him to work on his handwriting skills as well as reading books for fun, field trips, homeschool groups where kids meet up, etc. His computer skills and interests are zooming. His ADHD symptoms have reduced in frequency.

All therapy related activities have become more productive as well with his confidence in himself growing daily. This highly social kid no longer desires to be in school at all.

Some advice from our experiences – forget the meds for these type situations with family members and your circle of friends. Just walk away from traditional medicine’s and education’s recommendations and methods. Traditional schooling works well for some, but does not for others. When faced with an out of box situation, seek out of box solutions. Do the work and hand off the results to the Lord to determine for His children.

Have a blessed day, friends.

1985 maybe?

1980?

Stephen Miller
@StephenM
Many likely don’t appreciate just how radical and dangerous it is to revoke the doctrine of presidential immunity. In effect, this gives any single far-left judge, jury or prosecutor a veto over the actions of the democratically-elected president.

It means a Letitia James or a James Comey alone decides what a president can or cannot do in the fulfillment of his duties.

The fact that such a persecution may initiate after a president has left office is irrelevant: future presidents will now exercise their office within the narrow confines of this anti-constitutional anti-democratic framework.

A President is the embodiment of the state and the voter. So when he becomes liable for his exercise of speech as president it is, in fact, the whole American people who have been robbed of their sovereign authority — authority transferred yet again to the unelected, unreformed and unaccountable.

Conservatives not speaking out against these travesties are clearly uninterested in conserving this Republic.

Brave and Free

All together now, “UNIPARTY”
We control the gov not you the voters.

The Uniparty is now totally exposed. Always knew it existed but not to the existent I am seeing it now. People with Trump derangement syndrome made cannot help themself pushing further and further from the constitution and principles this country was founded on. Truth to them no longer matters .

Miller has an amazing powerful brain. I’m glad he’s on our side.

If we only could give 10% of his abilities to the congress we would be in fine shape 🤓

It’s not that I don’t appreciate the danger, Stephen.

I certainly do.

Why are you telling us? What is it that you want or expect us to do about it?

We are presented daily with injustices and corruption, not to mention having our entire country stolen by the Cabal. What is it that you want us to do about it?

Tell us, and we’ll do it.

But nobody ever does.

We have no leadership, only stenographers noting every injustice and corruption, day after day, month after month, year after year.

To what end?

What is the point?

If the point is demoralization, it’s certainly working.

It’s hard to imagine what could be more demoralizing, than having people on our own side doing a Tokyo Rose job on us, 24/7/365, year after year (after year).

Since when did police departments retain their own in-house surgeons?

Thank you, BakoCarl! It is so important for us to help each other as we think through the events of the day and our place in this world and the hereafter. I especially enjoyed the Corgi picture! Corgis are soooo cute.

Robert Malone just sent his Sunday funny memes and several are ones DePat already shared with us, confirming our ahead of the curve status.

I also enjoyed Malone’s sharing the Cacafornia meme (below).

New word for me

kakistocracy (/kækɪˈstɒkrəsi//kækɪsˈtɒ-/) is a government run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens.[1]: 54 [2][3] The word was coined as early as the seventeenth century.[4] Peter Bowler has noted in his book that there is no word for the government run by the best citizens,[a] and that the aristarchy may be the right term, but still, it could conceivably be a kakistocracy disguised as an aristocracy.[a]

EtymologyThe word is derived from two Greek words, kakistos (κάκιστος; worst) and kratos (κράτος; rule), with a literal meaning of government by the worst people.[5]

HistoryThe earliest use of the word dates to the 17th century, in Paul Gosnold’s A sermon Preached at the Publique Fast the ninth day of Aug. 1644 at St. Maries:[4]


Therefore we need not make any scruple of praying against such: against those Sanctimonious Incendiaries, who have fetched fire from heaven to set their Country in combustion, have pretended Religion to raise and maintaine a most wicked rebellion: against those Nero‘s, who have ripped up the wombe of the mother that bare them, and wounded the breasts that gave them sucke: against those Cannibal’s who feed upon the flesh and are drunke with the bloud of their own brethren: against those Catiline’s who seeke their private ends in the publicke disturbance, and have set the Kingdome on fire to rost their owne egges: against those tempests of the State, those restlesse spirits who can no longer live, then be stickling and medling; who are stung with a perpetuall itch of changing and innovating, transforming our old Hierarchy into a new Presbytery, and this againe into a newer Independency; and our well-temperd Monarchy into a mad kinde of Kakistocracy. Good Lord![6]

Love the word and perfect for the political class 😉

TheseTruths

That’s a great word that applies today.

I could be mistaken, but maybe that was one of Wolf’s words of the day on a Monday – ?

kakistocracy (n.)
from Greek kakistos “worst,” superlative of kakos “bad” (which perhaps is related to PIE root *kakka- “to defecate”) + -cracy

How much more appropriate could it be?

Show me one spot in that speech that doesn’t describe our current reality – I’ll print it out the entire speech in 24 point font and eat it.

Apparently SD was in Budapest a week or so ago, when he suddenly disappeared from CTH:

Eastern Europe Is Privately Not Quite as Pro-Ukraine as Western Media Claim
December 3, 2023

SD: “Now you know why I went to Budapest.”

TheseTruths

I give up. Why did he go?

pat frederick

dunno…but now i know why he was asking for donations like crazy

Aubergine

I think it has something to do with exploring Viktor Orban, the E.U., and the coming world collapse. SD has promised an article, but I bet it will be a huge thing. Maybe a series.
