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.”


Out with the Old. In with the New!

As this Old Year ends, we can be thankful for God’s Mercy, Grace, and Blessings.  As the New Year begins, we can look forward to new Mercies, and more Grace and Blessings from God.  Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of Lights, with Whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the desert. 

Isaiah 40:31 – New Strength
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

2 Corinthians 5:17 – New Creation
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

Psalms 98:1 – New Song
Sing to the LORD a new song, for He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have worked salvation for Him.

Romans 8:18 – Future Glory
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.

Ephesians 4:22-24 – New Self
You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

Jeremiah 29:11 – New Plans
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Proverbs 23:18 – Future Hope
There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.

Psalms 31:23-24 – Future Hope
Love the LORD, all His faithful people! The LORD preserves those who are true to Him, but the proud He pays back in full. Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.

1 Peter 1:3 – New Birth
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Lamentations 3:22-23 – New Mercies
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for His mercies never fail.  They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

Ezekiel 11:19 – New Heart
I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.

Colossians 3:9-10 – New Self
Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.

Revelation 21:5 – Everything New
He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then He said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”


Praise God in the good times!
Praise God in the bad!
Praise Him, give Him glory,
Be joyful, be glad!

They put the heavy heat on him. Got the crying mind-fracked parents after him.

The whole thing is sad, but I’m starting to think that we are not going to stop this quickly. If my worst case theory is right, the people behind this are far more experienced with manipulating humans than we realize.

singingsoul1

Some people can be bought for 10 silver coins. Shows one where his value lies.

Aubergine

Money is going to solve it, like I opined yesterday. The insurance companies are going to put this shit out of business.

The only way it could be funded would be some government program, and when Trump is President, he would never allow that.

By the time he’s done in four years, the fad will have burnt itself out. We’ll be back to the regular old transvestites, just sad old weirdos wearing women’s clothes.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Hope you’re right. And if this is reversed by the legislature, that will send a big signal, too.

I think insurances are making money. The government is rewording all except the people paying lots of taxes MEGA.

Interesting idea, coothie. Very interesting.

I have known some utterly and completely brilliant people in my life. Every one of them was a complete nutcase in one way or another.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Remember the space force chick (still, real) saying basically this, that she doesn’t want the “local politics” interfering with their location of folks? Sounded pretty boilerplate PC lunacy, but IMO if the other side (whatever that is) is targeting our people for conversion, then it makes sense, sorta.

That explains Manning. TARGETED. And then he leaks all that stuff. I know the TRANS and the TREASON are connected. But at some level, they’re either not getting it, do get it and don’t care, or are pretending not to get it. The whole thing is inscrutable, likely intended.

Obviously Asian or India Indian names far outnumber more English- or Western/European-type names…

Pretty easy to push through an agenda (2030, 2050, 2060!) or control when you control the publications and academia…..

singingsoul1

Can you see Muslims getting hold of the impersonator an finding out she/ he is fake?

kalbokalbs

My case rests, Space Force, like the rest of the military is infested with ROT.

  • Presumably Space Force, like the other Services has selection boards to determine the most FIT Qualified Woke for promotion.
para59r

Just to clarify, all selection boards for the enlisted ranks beginning with E7 (Sgt First Class/Platoon Sgt) and above as well as officer promotions of all branches are centralized at the Pentagon.

George Washington was known to love animals. Apparently a dog belonging to British General William Howe fell into Washington’s hands, and he returned the dog to Howe.

From George Washington to General William Howe, 6 October 1777

To General William Howe

[Perkiomen, Pa.] Octr 6. 1777

General Washington’s compliments to General Howe. He does himself the pleasure to return him a dog, which accidentally fell into his hands, and by the inscription on the Collar appears to belong to General Howe.

Muslim Leaders in America Expand Campaign to ‘Abandon Biden’ in 2024 Over U.S. Support for Israel

Muslim leaders are vowing to punish Joe Biden at the ballot box in 2024 over America’s continued support for Israel and because they are angry that Biden has not called for a ceasefire.

Even non-Muslim activists on the left are angry about this and may vote third party or stay home on election day as a result, but an organized boycott by Muslims could have a real effect on the election, especially in a state like Michigan.

This is one of the main reasons why the Biden administration keeps talking about Islamophobia…

My take on that is that the enemedia often gets it right when they’re reporting on
who
what
when
where

They often can’t be trusted on the “why,” and of course they spin like a top to suit their agenda.

If it’s
who – JB
what – going on a trip
when – next week
where – to Camp David

…it can usually be relied upon. The “why” of that could be that he needs a rest from working so hard…

Or if it’s
who – Trump
what – court date
when – Monday
where – kangaroo court in Manhattan

…those facts are solid.

The “why” could be because Trump “incited insurrection.” 🙄 That’s where things fall apart.

Valerie Curren

nicely played–TY 😉

cthulhu

The Fiancee was watching Lawrence of Arabia this afternoon. It is just such an amazing work of art that set the standard for many movies that followed. My favorite part was where the worms came out of the sand and attacked the Turks……😜

Seriously, though, there is one sequence where Lawrence is on the way to Damascus and he comes across Tafas [ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tafas_massacre ], where a Turkish column has massacred the villagers and committed atrocities. Continuing onward, Lawrence’s forces catch up to the Turks. Sharif Ali counsels for the Arabs to continue to Damascus, while a soldier from the village calls for “No Prisoners.” Lawrence wrestles with the decision until the soldier rides alone against the Turks and is killed, whereupon Lawrence throws his forces against the Turks with no quarter given.

The parallels with October 7 are obvious, and demonstrate that it’s a rough neighborhood, where FAFO isn’t unusual.

smiley2

one of the best movies ever made, imo.

I must have watched Lawrence a hundred times, at least.

the soundscore by Maurice Jarre is awesome, I played that record constantly in highschool.

One list of top 100 movies had it at number five. It is truly a work of art of the finest quality.

It did get O’Toole seriously typecast as a borderline psychotic…..but, then, he always played that role so well…..

I was obsessed with him in highschool LOL after watching Lawrence…but dismally disappointed, unfortunately, forever after by all of his other performances.

a bit too effete & debauched.

but he worked well as Lawrence.

plus that sweeping technocolor cinematography and the glorious Omar Shariff.

“…come on, men !”

there were no women in the movie at all except the wailing Arabian women in the rocks in the desert as the men rode out.

There were also dead women at Tafas.

will go back and watch again.

Where is the universal church in all of this? Why have they forsaken Christians? Unless the church steps up it will die on the wine and ceases to be the Church of Jesus Christ. I am revolted and my heart aches at the same time for persecuted Christians.
They will come for Christians around the world and no one will be there to defend us because Christians failed.
I always wondered why under Obama Christians fleeing persecutions were send back and Muslims were able to stay.
That evil is still enjoying prominence in US culture and around the world. Obama and evil is one.

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.

The Georgia FEC stands out in addition to the RINO funds dump. As I have posted so often – they all self-identify. We already know what needs to be done. We just need to do it, each person, wherever he or she lives. It is not a quick and easy fix. Have to work at it.

Where the RINOs are firmly entrenched you will not see as much obvious blue money flow. You just focus on their actual votes on the big issues that really matter as where their pork promotion project funds go. Where the blue funds flow to obvious RINOs, those are your open targets to publicly humiliate.

That’s why I say it is about 80% +/- Uniparty, albeit slowly moving our direction of late. There has to be a path to redemption offered and accepted to move it the rest of the way to patriot control. PDT can win the POTUS and still not be as effective as we need him to be without patriot control of Congress. Will see how it plays out.

Another reason to leave komifornia. <<< Very definition of shit hole.)

California law barring guns from most public spaces set to go into effect after appeals court ruling

Gov. Newsom signed the bill in September that starting Jan. 1 prohibits people from carrying guns in ‘sensitive’ public places

The Dec. 20 injunction called the law, “sweeping, repugnant to the Second Amendment, and openly defiant of the Supreme Court” after gun owners, the California Rifle & Pistol Association, the Second Amendment Foundation and Gun Owners of America sued over it. 

U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney wrote in his Dec. 20 ruling that the law, “turns nearly every public place in California into a ‘sensitive place,’ effectively abolishing the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding and exceptionally qualified citizens to be armed and to defend themselves in public.”

The law was signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in September, and prohibits gun owners from carrying firearms in 26 types of “sensitive” places and would include permit holders. It also bars owners from carrying concealed weapons in a privately owned business open to the public — like a restaurant — unless the owner posts a sign that concealed guns are allowed. 

Saturday’s administrative stay on the Dec. 20 injunction by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will remain until another panel of judges from the same circuit decides if a longer hold on the law is necessary.

In June 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled against a similar law in New York that limited concealed carry, saying gun laws must be “consistent with the nation’s historical tradition of firearm regulation.”

You can fake an attitude for a long time but no money, fame, or power can not erase the fact that you know you are a fraud.

I found this quite interesting. Not too sure about all the conclusions but … hey, it’s a free country right? For a little while longer, at least.

I want this car. Too bad it would break my budget. 😏

The car is now due to roll across the auction block with Mecum in January with a price guide of $1,700,000 – $1,900,000 USD. If you’d like to read more about it or register to bid you can visit the listing here.

This is the 21st of the 51 examples of the Tucker 48 that were made, it has had just three owners from new, and it was used during filming of the 1988 Francis Ford Coppola film “Tucker: The Man and His Dream,” starring Jeff Bridges.

The Tucker 48 became one of the most famous cars of its time, despite its low production run, in large part due to the larger-than-life character of company founder Preston Tucker, and the now infamous stock fraud trial he faced. He was ultimately acquitted on all charges, but it came too late to save his company.

Fast Facts – The Tucker 48

• Preston Tucker was an American inventor best known for his eponymous automotive company. Earlier in his life he had invented the Tucker Combat Car and the Tucker Gun Turret – variants of the turret design were used extensively during WWII on the B-17 and B-29.

• The Tucker 48 was a car known for its unusual design and its innovative safety features (for the era). The car had a unique center headlight that turned with the steering wheel, providing better visibility in turns. It also had a padded dashboard, a pop-out safety windshield, seat belts, and a roll bar integrated into the roof for added protection in case of an accident that resulted in the car rolling over.

• Unlike most cars of its time, the Tucker 48 had a rear-engine design. It was powered by a liquid-cooled, horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine located in the rear. The car was also fitted with four-wheel independent suspension and a perimeter frame for occupant impact protection.

• Preston Tucker and his company faced significant legal battles, including a Securities and Exchange Commission investigation. Tucker was accused of stock fraud, which added to the company’s financial woes. While he was ultimately acquitted, the negative publicity had a significant impact on the company’s reputation and finances, and it was forced into bankruptcy, ceasing operations on March the 3rd, 1949.

I wish someone would make a car like this today, with a unique body style, not electric, not computerized. Just a safety-conscious, beautiful car. If it were affordable, I would buy it in an instant.

Try a ’51 Studebaker Commander. Looks very similar to the Tucker.

BREAKING: Bill Clinton to be Named as “Doe 36” in Epstein Court Documents

Former president Bill Clinton will be named in the Jeffrey Epstein court documents set to be unsealed this coming week.

I have no clue what this means. The documents will be released, but the people on the list have the opportunity to try to keep their names under seal. So Bubba’s name, even if kept under seal, is already known to be “Doe 36”?

Judge Loretta Preska, however, stayed her order, which gives attorneys representing the “Does” time to convince the court to keep names under seal, so it is unclear if the public will ever see the full Epstein client list.

“Hundreds of sealed court filings pertaining to the late sex-offender Jeffrey Epstein are set to be made public this week, and several prominent names — including Britain’s Prince Andrew and former President Bill Clinton — are expected to appear in the documents.” ABC News reported.

According to ABC News, Bill Clinton is named as “Doe 36” in “more than fifty redacted filings.”

I got caught by a clickbait link but it was worth the trip. The subject was submarines and it had this gem to which I [and most everyone here] could seriously relate:

“My father served as an engineer onboard both HMS Suburb and Scepter which were nuclear powered hunter killers during the 70s and 80s… When he first joined …, he would sleep next to the reactor. Each year he would be tested for radioactivity, and each year he would be over the specified limit. Instead of transferring him they would just increase the limit for the next year.” – Reddit User adhoc_pirate

We have a long cleanup ahead of us …

Saw a great video about the Apache, Comanche, and other tribes duking it out in the Southwest, while also fighting the Spanish and Texans. The best horsemen were supposedly the Comanches, who were deadly accurate with gun or bow from horseback, even while hiding behind the horse as a shield.

Haley should never have run. She promised Trump she would not run against him. She should have been supporting him for president and supporting him against the bogus charges that are a threat not only to him but also to our republic.

But I believe she is waiting for him to be removed from the race by whatever means and whenever it might happen, even at the nominating convention.

Every time I see Kate, I just want to feed her a sandwich! She is just too thin, poor thing, and she wasn’t always.

Melania looks like she actually eats. Which is much better.

Wolf, I have to be honest. I eat red meat pretty much every day! Cheese less often, but I have pizza at least once a week.

I call myself an ravenous omnivore. If it’s not nailed to the table, I’ll eat it!

(Except weird shit like snails, and organ meats. Blech!)

I like Catherine she has an elegant style and likable personality.

This family appears to be in someone’s crosshairs…

“A family of Christian missionaries from Indiana who moved to the Caribbean island of Dominica to escape COVID vaccine mandates is finding the dream destination to be less than ideal.

Jason and Jennifer Grogg moved with their four kids to Dominica in 2021, but were arrested alongside two of their teen daughters this spring after police found a handgun and ammunition, which they say was accidentally packed in a shipping container with their other belongings from the US.

The father, 44, pleaded guilty in the case, in a deal that saw charges dropped against his wife and daughters, but now faces new charges, with his family out of funds to return to the US, the Indianapolis Star reported on Friday. 

‘We left the United States for a very particular reason when it came to the COVID nonsense,’ Jason told the outlet. ‘But we also saw very clearly this is the path that God was wanting us to take for purposes unknown.’ 

The family also left America because of their displeasure with the expansion of LGBTQ rights, according to self-published newsletters of their travels reviewed by the Star.”

ideological upheaval in Idaho

Angry residents of Idaho town say retired California cops and firefighters flocking there aren’t conservative enough – and fear they’ll enact liberal policies (but newcomers’ hefty pensions have helped rejuvenate local economy)

  • The new dynamic involving Eagle was unveiled this month by The Los Angeles Times, in the form of statements from residents of the Boise-bordering town 
  • They mostly complained about how the town has been bombarded with arrivals – particularly people receiving hefty pensions following careers in public service
  •  This ideological clash recently came to a head in the town’s mayoral election, during which Brad Pike won in a heated runoff over incumbent Jason Pierce

rockin’ New Years Eve

Queen of Denmark announces shock abdication in NYE speech: Europe’s longest-serving monarch steps aside for son Frederick and Aussie wife Mary – despite rumors of his fling with a socialite
Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II will abdicate on January 14 next year after 52 years on the throne, she announced during her traditional New Year’s Eve speech. The monarch, famed for her chain-smoking as well as her flamboyant sense of style, will be succeeded by her eldest son Crown Prince Frederik. The 83-year-old queen, who took over the throne in 1972, is the longest-serving monarch in Europe following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022. In February, she underwent a successful back surgery. ‘The surgery naturally gave rise to thinking about the future – whether the time had come to leave the responsibility to the next generation,’ she said in her speech. ‘I have decided that now is the right time. On January 14, 2024, 52 years after I succeeded my beloved father, I will step down as Queen of Denmark. ‘I leave the throne to my son, Crown Prince Frederik.’

global celebrations, lots of fireworks videos…

Starting 2024 with a bang! Stunning fireworks displays in Dubai, Australia and China ring in the new year as the clock ticks down to midnight in Europe
Stunning firework displays across Asia and Oceania have welcomed 2024 with a bang as the clock ticks down to midnight in Europe. Countries across the furthest reaches of the eastern hemisphere marked the dawn of a new era with huge firework displays, including in Auckland in New Zealand and Sydney in Australia where explosives erupted from Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House. In Asia the sprawling metropolis of Chongqing in China, along with other cities such as Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore, saw dramatic shows which wowed hundreds of thousands of people. Further displays then followed in the likes of Seoul in South Korea – but not in the packed out Shibuya ward of Tokyo, Japan , where countdown events were cancelled for the fourth year running amid concerns about overcrowding. As the midnight hour draws nearer in Europe, there was a bombastic display in the United Arab Emirates with fireworks erupting from the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, and the landmark Burj al-Arab luxury hotel in Dubai.
