JONAH 3:1-10

1Then the word of the LORD came to Jonah the second time, saying, 2“Arise, go to Nin’eveh, that great city, and proclaim to it the message that I tell you.” 3So Jonah arose and went to Nin’eveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nin’eveh was an exceedingly great city, three days’ journey in breadth. 4Jonah began to go into the city, going a day’s journey. And he cried, “Yet forty days, and Nin’eveh shall be overthrown!” 5And the people of Nin’eveh believed God; they proclaimed a fast, and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them to the least of them. 6Then tidings reached the king of Nin’eveh, and he arose from his throne, removed his robe, and covered himself with sackcloth, and sat in ashes. 7And he made proclamation and published through Nin’eveh, “By the decree of the king and his nobles: Let neither man nor beast, herd nor flock, taste anything; let them not feed, or drink water, 8but let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and let them cry mightily to God; yea, let every one turn from his evil way and from the violence which is in his hands. 9Who knows, God may yet repent and turn from his fierce anger, so that we perish not?” 10When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil way, God repented of the evil which he had said he would do to them; and he did not do it.

LUKE 11:29-32

29When the crowds were increasing, he began to say, “This generation is an evil generation; it seeks a sign, but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of Jonah. 30For as Jonah became a sign to the men of Nin’eveh, so will the Son of man be to this generation. 31The queen of the South will arise at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here. 32The men of Nin’eveh will arise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another.

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

“Heavy, Environmentally Unfriendly EVs Are Destroying America’s Infrastructure”


I don’t know how people keep falling for this propaganda garbage, over and over and OVER again 😂

There are approximately 3 million EVs on the road in America as of December 2023, with an average weight of 4,962 lbs. Regular ICE cars have an average weight of 3,200 to 4,200 lbs, so let’s split the difference and say 3,700 lbs.

Meanwhile, there are 4-1/2 million semi truck cabs in America, and they weigh between 10,000 lbs. and 25,000 lbs. (not counting trailers), so let’s split the difference and call it 17,500 lbs.

I bet those 4.5 million semi truck cabs are putting a CRAP TON more miles on the road every year than the EVs, too.

But we’re supposed to believe it’s the 3 million EVs at an average weight of 4,962 lbs. that are tearing up the roads, NOT the 4.5 million semi truck cabs (not including trailers) with an average weight of 17,500 lbs.

Right on… 👍😂


Edmunds: [number of EVs on the road in America]
There are approximately 3 million electric cars on the road in the U.S., according to an Experian Automotive Market Trends report from December 2023. This number is up from 2 million electric vehicles in 2022 and 1.3 million in 2021, but overall, EVs account for just over 1% of the total light-duty vehicles currently on U.S. roads. While EVs are gaining traction, they are still a long way from catching up to gas and hybrid vehicles, of which there are about 274 million currently in operation.”


CNN Business: [average weight of passenger ICE passenger cars]
The average weight of passenger vehicles has been increasing for the past 40 years, according to a report from the Environmental Protection Agency, from an average of about 3,200 pounds to nearly 4,200 pounds. That’s largely due to consumer preferences shifting towards trucks and SUVs and those vehicles, themselves, getting heavier.


The Average Weight of an Electric Vehicle (SUVs, Trucks, Sedans & Coupes)
“The average electric vehicle weighs 6,042 pounds GVWR, and it weighs 4,962 pounds in curb weight. This number was determined by averaging out the 36 electric vehicles that have a posted gross vehicle weight rating, and the 45 electric vehicles with an advertised curb weight.”

GVWR: Gross Vehicle Weight Rating
“The gross vehicle weight rating, or gross vehicle mass is the maximum operating weight/mass of a vehicle as specified by the manufacturer including the vehicle’s chassis, body, engine, engine fluids, fuel, accessories, driver, passengers and cargo but excluding that of any trailers. The term is used for motor vehicles and trains.” — Wiki


How Many Semi Trucks are on the Road?
“Presently, more than 4 million semi-trucks are on roads in more than 50 states of the USA. Their day cab and slope nose are famous designs of these class 8 trucks. 

How Many Semi Trucks are on the Road? According to our research, nearly 4.5 million semi-trucks are on roads, while Kenworth has 531000 to 534000 units, Freightliner has around 190000 to 192000, Navistar has 22000 to 22031, Western Star has 220000 to 240000, Volvo has 203500 to 203700, and international LoneStar has about 6000 units.”


JD Power: [weight of Semi Truck cabs]
“The unladen weight of a semi-tractor can vary between 10,000 and 25,000 pounds, depending on how powerful the engine is, how much it’s designed to tow, and whether or not it’s a sleeper cab. An unladen 53-foot trailer weighs about 10,000 pounds, accounting for a total unladen weight of about 35,000 pounds.”

Semi trucks don’t park in parking garages.


Good point.

The average weight of an ICE car is 3,700 lbs., and the average weight of an EV is 4,962 lbs., for a difference of 1,262 pounds, or the weight of 7 adults at 180 lbs. each.

Suppose a regular ICE car has 4 adults in it. It has at least 4 seats, so it could happen.

That would make the average ICE car weigh 3,700 lbs. + 720 lbs. = 4,420 lbs, so that’s only a difference of 542 lbs.

But that’s average.

LOTS of ICE cars are 4,200 lbs., + 720 lbs. (4 adults) = 4,920 lbs. vs. 4,962 lbs. for an EV.

If the parking garages can’t handle an EV, then they can’t handle an ICE car with 4 adults either.

It’s incredible how the hatred of EVs completely and totally messes with people’s minds… 😂

I’m not trying to make a point of any kind.

Parking garages are not filled with cars that have passengers in them. They are filled with empty vehicles that come and go with one or more people in them. A vehicle with four passengers driving through at random times is not the same as multiple vehicles with four passengers sitting there for an extended period of time.


“Parking garages are not filled with cars that have passengers in them. They are filled with empty vehicles that come and go with one or more people in them.”


Okay, so what’s the heaviest popular vehicle type?


How heavy is an SUV?

Midsize SUVs are one of the most popular types on the market and generally weigh around 5,000 pounds.”

That’s already over the average weight of an EV (4,962 lbs), and that doesn’t even include full size SUVs.

Can parking garages handle empty midsize SUVs?

If they can’t, then they better tear ’em down and build back better 😂

But if they can, then they can handle the weight of empty (and lighter) EVs too!

Have no hatred for EVs. I just think they are a stoopid item to purchase, own…

Including in blue shithole cities. Don’t care about the, smog rants.

That said, folks are welcome to make stoopid decisions.


I wouldn’t buy one either!

Actually pickup trucks have a tough time with parking garages. We don’t fit. We are too long.

There’s a joke in that comment I am sure. 🤣

Just my last experience, I had to keep backing up to maneuver around the turns and I scraped a concrete post because that was the only way I could make it out of the building. The turnstile was preventing me from backing up so I could make the turn cleanly.

On top of that I could not find any parking spots where I actually fit in the blasted building.

That’s so true, I drove a big truck for years. People would always ask, why do you back in all the time? Because it’s so much easier, and they’d give me these weird looks.

I bet those 4.5 million semi truck cabs are…” Paying a CRAP TON MORE ROAD TAX TO OFFSET THE WEIGHT.

Except I KNOW they are paying a lot in road taxes because I have filled out the paperwork.

Long-haul truckers and bus drivers need to file the heavy highway vehicle use tax return form. The average semi truck pays $22,222 per year in federal and state road taxes.

Speaking of trucks…

What is interesting are the driver statistics

  • According to Trucking industry statistics, there are 8% of truck drivers aged between 16 years to 24 years.
  • 17% of them belong to the age group of 25 years to 34 years.
  • There are 21% and 26% truck drivers from the age group of 35 years to 44 years and 45 years to 54 years respectively.
  • Whereas 21% of the truckers are from the age group of 55 years to 64 years and 7% are 65 years and above.

SO 75% of the drivers are 35 years and over. That means they are more likely to be conservative AND remember the crap Obama & the D-rats pulled, allowing Mexican drivers to haul loads in the USA and thereby depress wages.

“Long-haul truckers and bus drivers need to file the heavy highway vehicle use tax return form. The average semi truck pays $22,222 per year in federal and state road taxes.”


What a scam, just welfare for the construction industry, contractors and grift for politicians.

They’ve known how to build roads to last for decades, but then they wouldn’t be able to block highways all year around, and create the national meme of five road workers standing around watching one of them work.


Where the Rubber Meets the Road
comment image

Adding tire crumbs to recycled concrete aggregate can increase its cohesion.
The world produces more than one billion used tires a year. The U.S. alone contributes some 290 million. One way to keep them out of landfills is use them to make roads. At the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology researchers have mixed old tires with building rubble and shown that it can be used just as effectively in the base layer of roads as more traditional road fill. Adding just half a percent of tire crumb to recycled concrete aggregate can increase the aggregates cohesion.

But where old rubber really shines is on the surface, as part of the asphalt. “When you put ground tire in the road, it lasts longer, you don’t have as much pinning and cracking, and you don’t get rooster tail in wet water” said Laura Rogers, the director of strategic partnerships for The Ray. (“Roster tail is the arc of spray shot into the air where rubber meets the road in wet conditions).

The Ray has had a section of asphalt modified with ground tire rubber since 2019. At the University of Auburn’s National Center for Asphalt Technology, trucks have been rumbling over a strip of similar makeup for six years. “It still looks brand new,” says Rogers. The pounding they give a road at the NCAT facility means that every three years of use there is equivalent to 10 years of real-life road use, so the tire-augmented roads have already shown the potential to stay pot-hole free for two decades. The test strip has also retained its color. That rich black doesn’t just look nice; keeping the color constant will help autonomous vehicles navigate.

However promising a smart low maintenance road may sound, the biggest obstacle to updating our streets and highways may be inertia within the road construction industry.

There’s no incentive for contractors to build roads that are going to last longer and not need as much maintenance,” said Allie Kelly, The Ray’s executive director.

“They like paving a road for the department of transportation and doing it often.”

You forgot the JOBS FOREVER grift by the Union workers that I sawin Taxechusetts.

I always wondered why you would get this series of evenly spaced round holes in the pavement. Then I saw how those holes were made.

Dip your shovel into a bucket of Kerosene to ‘clean the tar off’ Then place the dripping wet shovel on the pavement where the tires will run and lean the shovel against your truck to allow the kerosene to drain onto the road. have 4 workers do that and a year or so down the road you get a nice series of 4 potholes thanks to the pre-softened asphalt  roads.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

In Colorado so much road work needs to be done compared to resources that the net effect of making it last longer is the roads would be better, for the same amount of money (and, most importantly to the featherbedders) the same amount of work. Our state government won’t pay more, but maybe they could get more for the same “maxxed out” amount of money>


Commercial trucks pay a heck of a lot of road taxes to deal with that damage.

EV’s don’t.


Mid-size SUVs and trucks weigh as much as or more than EVs.

And EVs only make up less than 1% of the vehicles on the road, while SUVs and trucks make up at least 52.3%.

Are SUVs and trucks paying any road tax?

Not that I think they should, I’m against every kind of tax on Americans that I can think of.


The Fastest Growing Segments“In addition to their dominant position, SUVs and pickups have been market share leaders over the past four years. A year before the pandemic hit global economies, the two segments accounted for 63 percent of total sales from January-April 2019. 

The market share in 2020 rose to 67.9 percent, and continued climbing to 70.5 percent for the same four-month stretch in 2021.

In total, truck/SUV market share increased by 9.9 points between 2019 and 2022. SUVs are prominent in the group, as the market share for that particular segment hasn’t stopped growing. In 2019 it was 46.1 percent, rising to 47.5 percent in 2020 and 52.3 percent last year.”

Gail Combs

The North Carolina [yearly] Vehicle Registration Fee is $20 – $60 (estimated range – based on vehicle weight and age).
On top of that the new 540 toll road has a MUCH higher fee for anything over 2 axles. 3 axles are double the amount and 4 axles are 4 times the amount.


And all of it is just scam and grift.

Just like all the licensing schemes.

Build the roads properly in the first place, and make the construction companies guarantee their work, or they pay to fix it.

Gail Combs


The USA used to use tariffs on imported goods to fund the US government.

That was a tax on the wealthy so it was decreased in favor of taxing the labor of the serfs.

Connecting the Dots — Topics include how the international syndicate uses legal mechanisms to supersede nation state sovereignty in favor of multi-national corporations.


I was pointing out the libertarian view that should be used on this issue.

Truckers try to mitigate via road taxes yet there are no equivalent road taxes on passenger vehicles or pickup trucks.


I just don’t accept the premise, i.e., in a wholly corrupt society, nothing is ever fixed, and all money raised goes to grift.


“Road” Taxes?
They are called “GAS” Taxes.
And Yes. We ALL pay them every time we fill up our gas tanks.


We that drive on “Toll Roads” also contribute to “Road” Taxes at every toll booth.


Uh, ALL vehicles pay pump taxes. Big rigs are taxed on top of that specifically called use tax for roads.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

And if I am not mistaken the weigh scales are used to determine the amount of at least some of their tax payments.


Some portion of gas taxes go towards roads.


I bet zero goes to roads, and 100% goes top grift.

They don’t fix the roads where I live, and on the rare occasion that they even try, they usually make it worse.

I don’t have any living memory of a time when anything worked at all, much less worked like it should.

J1 – The Anniversary of the BLM Insurrection at the White House — Before there was J6, there was J1. (It was multiple days)

Six members of the National Guard were wounded by Democrat insurrectionists throwing bricks. One of the Guardsmen was struck in the head.

The Inspector General’s report for the Department of the Interior documented “bricks, rocks, caustic liquids, frozen water bottles, glass bottles, lit flares, rental scooters, and fireworks” thrown at Park Police officers resulting in 49 injuries. 16 of those occurred on May 31st.

By June 1st or J1, 60 Secret Service personnel had “sustained multiple injuries from projectiles such as bricks, rocks, bottles, fireworks” and were “punched, kicked, punched, and exposed to bodily fluids.” That number would later be updated to 67 injured

So in total that is 122 injured by the Commie mob. Remember foreign agents, not speaking English were also sighted.

The insurrectionist tactics on display were similar to those that had terrorized cities around the country, but what especially alarmed federal personnel was that the insurrectionists were not just aiming at the White House, but also at the nearby Treasury Department building.

The Treasury Building is connected to the East Wing of the White House by a secret tunnel built after Pearl Harbor to allow the president to evacuate in case of an attack.

When the insurrectionists penetrated barricades set up at the Treasury Building, there was fear that the attackers were preparing to foil a presidential evacuation by hitting both the White House and the Treasury Building, cutting off any possible escape route for President Trump….


According to the Leftest PROPAGANDA Jan 6th was WORSE.

During the riot and attack on the Capitol on January 6th, 140 police officers were injured and 5 gave their lives. Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick died of a stroke from injuries sustained during the riot. LINK

Except we KNOW the only deaths were MAGA supporters. And the 5 deaths were 4 suicides and a stroke. The ‘injuries’ to Sicknick were made up of whole cloth. LINK And another Police Officer was Caught LYING About injuries on January 6th

This was not a bit of info I was aware of. I knew Babbitt was shot and of the beating of Boyland, who was unconscious at the time, by Morris. This was deemed to be “objectively reasonable” after an investigation by the department’s Internal Affairs Bureau.

David Ray says
June 1, 2023 at 3:49 pm

Also, don’t forget that these leftist street-trash had also rioted during Trump’s inauguration in 2017 under their crybaby slogan “Resist”.

Smashed windows, burned cars, hurled objects, etc happened as is de rigueur with indulged leftists. (They know not to fear long term incarceration or unflattering headlines.)

The Jan 6th protesters, by contrast, were a well behaved group. Their gathering had been a festive tailgate-party atmosphere the entire day before on Jan 5th (in spite of sporadic AntiFa harassment.)

So what changed it?

👉The Jan 6th patriots were 1st lured into the ellipsis, then fired on with an unrelenting barrage of flash-bangs, rubber bullets, tear gas, and “sting” bombs for half an hour.

The unprovoked attack by DC police had at 1st bewildered the protestors, then after Kevin Greeson was killed by a “sting” bomb pellet to the eye, finally enraged them.

That’s what changed it.

BLM & AntiFa punks always show up to initiate trouble.

On Jan 6th, Nancy’s DC police stood in wait to initiate trouble – and so they did, just as planned.

And another police attack I did not know about.

Prosecutors Identify Psychotic Police Captain Who Beat the Hell Out of Woman with Metal Baton Nearly to Death and Bashed Her in the Face on Jan. 6th
Victoria was later arrested and charged with assault on the US Capitol….
Victoria White was brutally beaten near death by the US Capitol Police.

According to attorney Joseph McBride:

She is hit approximately thirty- five times over the course of 4 minutes and 30 seconds, while appearing to be begging for mercy the entire time. She is hit with the baton while facing away. She is hit with the baton while facing forward. She is speared and poked with the baton about the face so as to inflict maximum pain. 👉She collapses more than once and is stood up by the officers only to be maced and beaten again. At some point, White-shirt puts away his baton, not because he is showing mercy because he has a clear avenue to her face. As such, he unloads on the defenseless woman punching her five times in five seconds, directly in the face, with all of his might.

After the police officers beat Victoria with batons for several minutes and smashed her in the face with their fists, they put her in zip-tie handcuffs and paraded her through the US Capitol and into a police vehicle.

You can see her bloodied face in this photo:

Recently prosecutors have identified the police supervisor who beat Victoria White nearly to death… Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) commander Jason Bagshaw…

Bagshaw recently shot and killed a man while he was at dinner with his wife.

So the Capitol Police TARGETED WOMEN. I think that was intentional to stir up as much RAGE as possible.


  :wpds_mad: I haven’t had enough coffee yet to come up with anything other than F them.

Gail Combs

I was stunned when I read about that second beating.

THREE MURDERS/BEATING targeting WOMEN is NOT some coincidence.

This is what happened to the BASTARD who beat white:

On April 7, 2022, Police Chief Robert J. Contee III promoted Bagshaw to the rank of Commander.


So what happen to Victoria White?

Epoch Times: U.S. District Judge John Bates to have January 6 defendant and police beating victim Victoria White jailed because she met with GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill.

I do not have an account so I can not read the article.

January 6th Police Beating Victim Victoria White Finally Has Trial Date 2 Years Later

  :wpds_arrow: In July, 2022, Bagshaw shot and killed 23-year-old Lazarus Wilson, of Dumfries, Virginia, while dining with his wife, also 👉a member of the same police force.

White beaten, is forced further into Capitol tunnel, Jan. 6. 2021. She was never called to testify in any of Nancy Pelosi’s hearings.

comment image

One witness described White as a “true hero” who “stopped not one, but two people who were trying to break into the Capitol without a thought of her own safety. She is someone who loves our country and stands up for what is right.”

The Rochester, Minnesota patriot now has a trial set for May 8, 2023, for her patriotic participation in the historical rally over two years ago.

U.S. District Judge John D. Bates set this trial after White rejected the government’s plea offer. 

White, 39, gathered peacefully at President Donald Trump’s rally with up to a million American patriots near the Washington Monument that January morning….

She and a friend decided to visit the Capitol, because “it was my first time here so of course, we were like so many others,” she said…

👉White said as they approached the Capitol there were no signs, warnings or barricades.

“There were no police cars or officers on the way, in the streets en route as we walked forward,”…

…she recognized those who appeared to be the operatives such as “Antifa, or maybe government operatives.”

White noticed some trying to break glass and windows, so she started calling them out not to do that.

“We are on the same side,” one of the two ‘operatives’ yelled back. “We are on the same team.”

“No, we are not, we are here in peace to right the wrongs,” she yelled back as two more men pulled her back and pushed her into a crowd at an entryway.

It turned out White was “ping-ponged” back and forth between police officers into the entry tunnel where a “mace- type agent” was being sprayed into the crowd….

White (bottom right) said she was unaware this body cam footage showing her being forced inside the Capitol after being beaten by Bagshaw existed.

NBC — Video Shows Moments Before, After Off-Duty DC Officer Fatally Shoots Man at Wharf

D.C. police Cmdr. Jason Bagshaw fatally shot Lazarus Wilson, of Dumfries, Virginia, at the Wharf after police say Bagshaw saw Wilson point a gun [at someone else] as Bagshaw and his wife dined at Bistro du Jour. Police later found a handgun and a bag containing more than $30,000 in cash. [No mention of WHERE that gun and money was found]….

D.C. law only requires the police department to release video from body cameras of officers involved in shootings. As Bagshaw was off-duty at the time of the shooting, there was no requirement for police to release anything except his name.  [Well isn’t that just dandy!]…

MORE: Family Of Man Killed By Off-Duty Officer At Wharf Says Decision Not To File Charges ‘Heartbreaking’

…The U.S. Attorney’s Office for D.C. announced that it was not pressing charges against the police commander who shot him, Lt. Jason Bagshaw.

Andrew Clarke, the family’s attorney, said they will be filing a lawsuit against Bagshaw and the Metropolitan Police Department…

Bagshaw was off-duty when he killed Wilson, who was holding a gun. Police have said Wilson was involved in an armed robbery. But Clarke said Wilson took out his gun to protect his friend — who told police that they were being robbed by another armed individual — and that the use of force was not justified. Local activists have said Bagshaw was already known for using more force than necessary.,,

I like Byron also 🙂 He is steady and seems well suited to be VP or even President. Ron the snake not so and Noem well she has a man problem.


I still have my Michele Bachmann mug!

Brave and Free

I hope so too, there’s only one or two I’d support. 🤔


ME TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!


What — not Mitt Romney?!??




I think if he’s talking about them, they are less, not more, likely to be the pick. YMMV.


I agree.


I was hoping to see Kristi Noem. I’m glad she is there.


I think he’s giving fake news fake news

Gail Combs

Well Trump is KNOWN for Trolling the Fake News.


I like Byron Donalds.


Same. Perfect. Will brook no nonsense. Knows his stuff. Sharp. Best person who can finish MAGA. Only problem he is he brings no electoral votes to the table that trump does not already have and this contest will likely come down to electoral votes.


Maybe he can serve someplace in Trump’s cabinet ?


Whoever Trump picks for VP is almost certainly going to be the candidate for president in 2028.

From a white male perspective (not that anyone cares, obviously), two of the biggest domestic problems in America are:

1) Radical feminism — it is literally destroying the institution of marriage and (and also therefore) the birthrate. And without a strong birthrate, the country dies. Or justifies population replacement via illegal alien invasion. In which case, the country dies.

2) Black racism, black violence and criminality — approximately 3.25% of the U.S. population (black males aged 14 to 45) commit well over 50% of all violent crime in America

And there is ZERO corrective mechanism for either problem, they are RUNAWAY TRAINS. Nobody is even allowed to talk about them, without being called a racist or a misogynist.

Does anyone really believe a female president is going to do anything about radical feminism, or advocate for men?

Do any men think a woman is even capable of advocating for men?

Does anyone believe that making another black man president, will do anything more for race relations than the last black president? How many times do we have to fall for that?

Is a black president going to take on the problems of black racism and black violence?

Is a black president going to advocate for and defend the rights of white people?

I’m lucky.

I’m not old enough to remember the ‘bad old days’ (which were apparently glory days, considering how boomers use them to justify every racial and feminist giveaway under the sun) that motivate the boomer generation to continually stab our country in the back with reparations-in-kind for supposed past abuses.

Abuses which amount to nothing compared to the current abuses committed against white people today.

So I have ZERO false-guilt to assuage, which makes it easy to avoid doing something insane, like taking someone who represents by far the most violent and racist minority in the country, and putting him in charge of everybody.

I won’t be doing that.

Because I’m not suicidal.

Not personally, not culturally and not nationally.

Same goes for putting a woman in charge.

I have no idea what it will take for boomers to recognize that NATIONAL LEADERSHIP is not a Diversity – Equity – Inclusion game.

But I’m sure I’ll find out, because I see how most boomers think. Always making my generation (and those who came after) pay for the supposed sins of their past.

We pay for it, we suffer the consequences, so they can feel better about themselves.

And that won’t be changing, not unless the entire system finally collapses, and all their comfort and security is stripped away.

“….I have no idea what it will take for boomers to recognize that NATIONAL LEADERSHIP is not a Diversity – Equity – Inclusion game….”



Civil Rights Act (1964)

This act, signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson on July 2, 1964, prohibited discrimination in public places, provided for the integration of schools and other public facilities, and made employment discrimination illegal. It was the most sweeping civil rights legislation since Reconstruction.

In a nationally televised address on June 6, 1963, President John F. Kennedy urged the nation to take action toward guaranteeing equal treatment of every American regardless of race. Soon after, Kennedy proposed that Congress consider civil rights legislation that would address voting rights, public accommodations, school desegregation, nondiscrimination in federally assisted programs, and more…

In the Senate, Southern Democratic opponents attempted to talk the bill to death in a filibuster. In early 1964, House supporters overcame the Rules Committee obstacle by threatening to send the bill to the floor without committee approval….

The actual act is listed. NOTE THIS PART:

(g) Notwithstanding any other provision of this title, it shall not be an unlawful employment practice for an employer to fail or refuse to hire and employ any individual for any position, for an employer to discharge any individual from any position, or for an employment agency to fail or refuse to refer any individual for employment in any position, or for a labor organization to fail or refuse to refer any individual for employment in any position, if

(1) the occupancy of such position, or access to the premises in or upon which any part of the duties of such position is performed or is to be performed, is subject to any requirement imposed in the interest of the national security of the United States under any security program in effect pursuant to or administered under any statute of the United States or any Executive order of the President; and

(2) such individual has not fulfilled or has ceased to fulfill that requirement.

(h) Notwithstanding any other provision of this title, it shall not be an unlawful employment practice for an employer to apply different standards of compensation, or different terms, conditions, or privileges of employment pursuant to a bona fide seniority or merit system, or a system which measures earnings by quantity or quality of production or to employees who work in different locations, provided that such differences are not the result of an intention to discriminate because of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin,

nor shall it be an unlawful employment practice for an employer to give and to act upon the results of any professionally developed ability test provided that such test, its administration or action upon the results is not designed, intended or used to discriminate because of race, color, religion, sex or national origin.

It shall not be an unlawful employment practice under this title for any employer to differentiate upon the basis of sex in determining the amount of the wages or compensation paid or to be paid to employees of such employer if such differentiation is authorized by the provisions of section 6(d) of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938, as amended (29 U.S.C. 206(d))….

It was Johnson,after the CIA murdered Kennedy that came up with the ‘Great Society’

LBJ: I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years.
Written by Allen West on March 20, 2014

The Republican Party was created to achieve individual freedom. Then, as now, the antagonist to the Republican party has been the Democrats, the party of collective subjugation and individual enslavement — then physical, now economic.

The first black members of the US House and Senate were Republicans. The first civil rights legislation came from Republicans. Democrats gave us the KKK, Jim Crow, lynchings, poll taxes, literacy tests, and failed policies like the “Great Society.”

Republican President Eisenhower ordered troops to enforce school desegregation. Republican Senator Everett Dirksen enabled the 1964 civil rights legislation to pass, in opposition to Democrat Senators Robert Byrd (KKK Grand Wizard) and Al Gore, Sr.

As a matter of fact, it was Democrat President Lyndon Baines Johnson who stated, “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years” as he confided with two like-minded governors on Air Force One regarding his underlying intentions for the “Great Society” programs.

Yep, and who are the real racists? So far, thanks to a Republican Party that is ignorant of its own history and gave up on the black community, Democrats have 50 of those 200 years under their belt.

Then there was AFFIRMATIVE ACTION which was NOT EQUAL RIGHTS. So where did that come from?

Affirmative action was first introduced by the administration of President Lyndon Johnson (1963–69) in a bid to uplift African Americans while legislation focused on civil rights reform. 👉Affirmative action policies, such as the prohibition of businesses receiving federal funding in using aptitude tests in employment that tended to discriminate against African Americans, were instituted under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and 👉part of Executive Order №11246.

Academically, affirmative action in college admissions was borne out of a persistent — though evidently slowly decreasing through the decades — Black-and-White gap in the academic field, an apt reflection of the profound difference between the Black and White experience in America, socially, economically, educationally, residentially. Pre-abolishment,👉 the rationale was, given the historic and systemic discrimination against African Americans, that constitutional freedoms alone could not repair centuries’ worth of racial subjugation, and that it was society’s moral responsibility to correct and uplift the product of their wrongs.👈

The article then gets into a modern supreme court case.

On 29 June, the conservative-led Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) made yet another groundbreaking decision of great controversy, following the Dobbs decision striking down landmark opinion Roe v Wade, much to the dismay of the liberals. The abolishment of Affirmative Action in college admissions…

in the eloquently written opinion, Roberts asserts that the Harvard and UNC admissions programs proved to be unconstitutional as a consequence of a failure to survive what was described as the “daunting two-step examination” of strict scrutiny, the legal standards when evaluating racial categorisations under the fourteenth amendment: whether the use of race in admissions serves compelling governmental interests, and following it, if it is narrowly tailored enough, or of sufficient necessity to achieve those interests.

The goal of Harvard University, as it was argued, to train and serve future leaders in preparation for an increasingly diverse world through learning alongside diverse academic environments, was to Justice Roberts, while commendable, were “not sufficiently coherent” to be “subjected to meaningful judicial review”. This, in his view, the immeasurable standard of Harvard’s focus on diversity undermined the essence of Harvard’s case for affirmative action to be present within admissions.

Additionally, the conservative court took issue with the lack of a sunset clause for affirmative action policies, such that the deviation of treatment, in the interests of all citizens, was but a temporary measure as outlined in Grutter v. Bollinger….




I’m not sure what you mean.

It wasn’t my generation who voted for all that crap.

I wasn’t even born yet.

I wasn’t able to vote until the mid/late 1980s, more than two decades after the Civil Rights Movement, the sexual revolution, feminism, the creation of protected-class status for everyone except white men, etc. was well established.

All of that was de facto, entrenched, before I had any say in any of it.

Who is in charge, destroying our country for decades?

It’s not my generation, or anyone younger than me. It’s the gerontocracy.

Whoever has the money has the power.

Who has all the money?

You are scapegoating the WRONG PEOPLE. I would think after reading here for years, you would have figured out that Boomers were sheep who were SHEARED. Boomers were the first generation of Americans to be POORER than their parents.They were victims.

If you want to blame anyone blame the Gilded Age Rockefellers, Fords, Carnegies… and the UK.


you forgot Franklin Roosevelt


I don’t want to blame anyone, I want to make the pain stop.

That requires action, not analysis.

Anything would be better than just passively watching our own demise.

If the action means a lot of pain for the monsters who are creating all the misery, I’m fine with that.

It doesn’t prevent discrimination against white people, just everyone except white people.

It destroyed the school system for everyone.

It made employment discrimination against whites not only legal, but mandatory.

Not in practice, not in the real world, it doesn’t.


“The problem is not the law, it is the twisting of that law by the DemonRat Commies in Government and on the bench.”


And that twisting was guaranteed to happen, it was no less certain than the way every new gov’t agency continually accrues more power to itself until it becomes a tyrannical threat to the very People it was created to serve.

This, like the creation of law through legislation, has a 100% track record, which is why no one can ever claim they didn’t know or didn’t consider how it would be corrupted, approximately 0.00072497 seconds after passage.

I understand all that, but it doesn’t change the fact that no one does anything to stop it.

We just analyze it to death.

Like analyzing an advancing army.

Okay, I see them, about a hundred yards away, bayonets drawn.

Now they’re 50 yards away.

Now they’re 20 yards away, probably a good time to prepare to do something.

Now they’re cutting us down. We’re dying now.

Now they’re 20 yards past the line we used to hold, where all the dead people are (us).

Now they’re 50 yards past.

Now they’re 100 yards past.

All the dead people are still dead.

Unfortunately, that means they can’t analyze their own impending demise, anymore.

So for all the proponents of endless analysis, and all the hobbyists who enjoy analyzing, this is a tragedy.

The war is being brought directly to all of us. The reports are growing daily of violence, rapes, murders committed by illegals AND homegrown thugs.
They’re being set free or not charged at all.

Nothing new to us but the new thing is that the courts would happily throw anyone of us into the gulag for protecting ourselves.

Parents can’t protect their children anymore.
Property is for the taking if you leave the house for a vacation.

But We the People have the gov’t outnumbered by around 300 to 1.

FIRST we have ID the actual TOP puppet Master(s) AND THEY ARE NOT AMERICAN!

Sir Henry Kissinger: British agent of influence

In a May 10, 1982 speech to Chatham House (the Royal lnstitute for International Affairs), Sir Henry Kissinger bragged that he had been a British agent in the Nixon and Ford administrations, serving as Presidential adviser for national security and secretary of state. (Today, Kissinger is Honorary Knight Commander of the Order of St. Michael and St. George, a rank normally given to top British diplomats.) In his speech, Kissinger stated that he had pursued British policy in these positions irrespective of the sovereign concerns of the United States, which he ostensibly was serving.

Excerpts from that speech, entitled “Reflections on a Partnership: British and American Attitudes to Postwar Foreign Policy,” include the following statements:

The British were so matter-of-factly helpful that they became a participant in internal American deliberations, to a degree probably never practiced between sovereign nations. In my period in office, the British played a seminal part in certain American bilateral negotiations with the Soviet Union-indeed, they helped draft the key document.

In my White House incarnation then, I kept the British Foreign Office better informed and more closely engaged than I did the American State Department …. It was symptomatic [emphasis added]. … “In my negotiations over Rhodesia I worked from a British draft with British spelling…

So, Martin of Wintergatan made this marble machine. It played the “marble machine song” that he composed.

Considering that it is meant to be played by a mechanical instrument, the song has become oddly popular (with four humans filling-in for the machine).

But it got even more popular than that….


The best Marble Machine cover video is played on the carillon of the city of Utrecht.

Oddly enough, there were several people in the comments who claim to have been in Utrecht on that day and recognized the tune, and thought “WTF?”

It occurs to me that there is one cute argument to be made about the outrageous NY Engorgon fine.

Being that there are no actual victims to this “fraud”, who might be reimbursed for nonexistent damages, the money would go directly to government coffers.

If a government passes a law that takes money from someone for general purposes, it is not a criminal matter… is a tax. Generally, there are procedures for enacting a tax that are somewhat different from creating a criminal law. I wonder if these procedures were followed…..

What they are not saying is the swing voters, the ones said to determine elections, Are going to vote either Trump, because ‘ECONOMY’ or RFK jr because they hate Bidden. Only the hardcore Left is still in the Bidden camp. They have lost the Union vote and the Black vote. The Muslim vote is NOT happy and with luck the Jews are starting to wake up.
Anti-Trump Burnout: The Resistance Says It’s Exhausted

 …. A Pew Research Center survey last year found that 65% of Americans said they always or often felt exhausted when they thought about politics.

“Exhaustion is underlying the entire attitude toward our presidential election,” said Whit Ayres, a veteran Republican pollster. “When you’ve got two people that are opposed by 70% of Americans who want a different choice, it creates frustration, anxiety and discouragement.

Democratic pollsters and strategists say that no one is more motivating or terrifying to their voters than Trump.

Buoyed by strong showings in special elections last week, and other recent contests including a successful write-in campaign for Biden in New Hampshire’s primary, many believe their voters will grow increasingly engaged as the general election nears and Trump’s legal problems unfold….

A CNN poll recently asked how motivated Americans were to vote in the election. 👉Republicans, out of power and eager to regain it, were more likely to say “extremely motivated.” A Yahoo News/YouGov poll asked voters last fall about their attitudes toward the 2024 election.

👉Thirty-nine percent of Democrats picked “exhaustion” from the list of sentiments offered (a close second to “dread”). Just 26% of Republicans chose “exhaustion.”

Of course. But sometimes they do drop a little bit of truth. The very fact they are showing ‘Erosion in the party’s standing with traditional Democrats’ I found interesting.


Watch out for this, I think the Globos may try and gin it up.


“The holder of an American passport was detained in Yekaterinburg in the case of treason on the day of Putin’s interview with Tucker Carlson. The FSB reports that she is accused of “raising funds for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.” In fact, in one transfer of $51.8 to the Ukrainian fund

The Federal Security Service of the Sverdlovsk Region has opened a criminal case under Article 275 of the Criminal Code — on high treason in the form of “providing financial assistance to representatives of a foreign state in activities directed against the security of the Russian Federation” — against a 32-year-old (FSB wrote that 33-year-old) citizen of the United States and Russia Ksenia Khavana (Karelina).

The FSB Public Relations Center reports that Khavana “since February 2022 has been proactively collecting money in the interests of one of the Ukrainian organizations, which were subsequently sent to purchase tactical medicine items, equipment, weapons and ammunition for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.”

The “First Department” knows that Ksenia Khavan is accused of transferring the amount of 51.8 US dollars from her account in an American bank to the account of the Razom for Ukraine Ukrainian fund on February 24, 2022.

On January 27, the woman was detained by the staff of the PPSP for “petty hooliganism”, and the judge of the Ordzhonikidze District Court of Yekaterinburg sent her under administrative arrest for 14 days, referring, among other things, to the report of employees of the regional FSB. Ksenia did not leave the special detention center for freedom — on February 7, the woman was detained already in a criminal case. The next day, the court sent Ksenia into custody for two months. Article 275 of the Criminal Code (“high treason”) provides for a penalty of 12 to 20 years in prison.

On February 9, Vladimir Putin’s interview with American TV presenter Tucker Carlson was published, in which the case of journalist Evan Gershkovich, accused of espionage, was discussed. Answering a question about a possible exchange of a US citizen, Putin said that “this is possible with oncoming traffic from our partners.”

When the CIA and State Department INTENTIONALLY start wars so the Banks and Millitary contractors can fleece the US public of their hard earned wealth AND the Globalist can use those wars to kill off US Alpha males that might challenge them, I want to know so I can OPPOSE THOSE WARS.

If Matt is correct, the Middle East mess we have been dealing with for years, was INTENTIONALLY SET-UP by the UK.

You cannot fix a problem unless you under stand the CAUSE.


“On January 27, the woman was detained by the staff of the PPSP for “petty hooliganism”…..

That’s a week before the Carlson Putin interview.
She was Russian and married an American.
Only guessing but wouldn’t be surprised if she was one of the woke protestor types, and or connected to a globo NGO.
Gets picked up for “petty hooliganism” and they then check her background and find the small donation.


She is/was a ballerina. Of course it’s possible for a ballerina to be connected to a global NGO, but I don’t think it’s likely that she participated in “woke” protests while dancing professionally. She might be retired now; I don’t know.

Gail Combs

she was granted US citizenship in 2021. She is 32.

From the Daily Mail.

The ex-husband of the Russian-American ballerina being held in Russia on high treason charges has broken his silence, sharing his agony to reveal, ‘She must be living some sort of a nightmare.’

Speaking and pictured for the first time since news of Ksenia Khavana’s fate emerged, Evgeny Khavana exclusively revealed to that his own family are living in fear and cannot speak freely because they believe they are being ‘listened to’ by Russian authorities.

👉Earlier his mother removed the Pray for Ukraine logo from her Facebook profile, leaving only a black space where it was once displayed.

Ksenia’s ‘crime’ was to donate $51 to a Ukrainian charity – an act that has seen her accused of helping to arm Russia’s enemies.

According to Khavana her imprisonment defies comprehension. He said, ‘I only learned this myself yesterday. I don’t understand it. I know why she went there; she went to see her parents, but I don’t understand this. It’s a stupid political situation. It’s crazy.’

Apologizing Khavana said he wanted to talk but could not speak freely at this stage.

Karelina, who now works in a Beverly Hills spa, is accused of treason in Russia for sending $51.80 to a Ukrainian charity. She faces 20 years in prison.

Thank you for bringing this.

Here is the paper referenced in the article:
“mRNA vaccine boosters and impaired immune system response in immunocomrpromised individuals: A narrative review”
Alberto Boretti
5 December 2023
Yours Truly: Dr. Boretti specifically discusses the impairment of the CD4 – CD8 immune system cells in the “boosted” person’s body.

A summary review of the paper is here:
8 February 2024

Yours Truly has presented and discussed on this board for over two years, the fact that the COVID-19 “vaccines” were DESIGNED TO, among other things, ATTACK the CD4 – CD8 immune system cells of the “vaccine” recipient’s body. THESE ARE THE SAME IMMUNE SYSTEM CELLS THAT ARE ATTACKED BY THE HIV/AIDS VIRUS.

Dr. Nathan Thompson, DC, was one of the first medical professionals to make the connection between COVID-19 “vaccination” and the destruction of the CD4 – CD8 immune system cells in the “vaccine” recipient’s body. One of his patients, who had great immune system levels PRIOR to this person getting COVID-19 “vaccinated”, was found to have greatly reduced CD4 – CD8 immune cell levels AFTER BOTH of the COVID-19 injections that were taken, ESPECIALLY after the second injection. Dr. Thompson’s video explaining the blood test results of this patient may still be on You Tube.

Yours Truly will make five additional important points:

ONE: It has been known since at least 2022 (if not before) that the COVID-19 “vaccines” SUPPRESS THE NATURAL IMMUNE SYSTEM CELLS AND RESPONSES OF THE BODY OF THE “VACCINATED” PERSON:
“Innate immune suppression by SARS-CoV-2 mRNA vaccinations: The role of G-quadruplexes, exosomes, and MicroRNAs”
Stephanie Seneff, PhD, Peter A. McCullough, MD, et al.
15 April 2022

“Deep immune profiling of COVID-19 patients reveals distinct immunotypes with therapeutic implications”
Divij Mathew et al.
9 April 2020

THREE: The ORIGINAL LAB-CREATED SARS-CoV-2 virus ITSELF was ENGINEERED to attack the important CD4 – CD8 IMMUNE SYSTEM CELLS OF THE INFECTED PERSON’S BODY. This original created virus RNA was then “modified” with OTHER elements to create the “modRNA” that is in EVERY modRNA COVID-19 “VACCINE” by Pfizer-BioNTech, by Moderna, by Novavax, and by ANY other manufacturer that uses the modRNA COVID-19 virus ingredients, whether or not said “vaccine” ALSO contains any elements of any Omicron variant(s).
IN ADDITION, Pfizer-BioNTech added two dangerous lipid nanoparticles, ALC-1059 and ALC-0315 that SPECIFICALLY EVADE the “vaccine” recipient’s natural immune system “are you a friend or an enemy” response to the “vaccine.” Moderna added the dangerous lipid nanoparticle, SM-102, to its modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines”, which DOES THE SAME THING. The Novavax COVID-19 “vaccines” use a proprietary process and ingredient, called “Matrix M”; however, this company’s “vaccines” have, as the base, the SAME modRNA elements of the Omicron variant line that the respective Pfizer-BioNTech and the Moderna “2023-2024 Formula COVID-19 Vaccines” have.


FIVE: An “UN-vaccinated” person who gets COVID-19 and recovers ALSO may have their natural immune systems and responses compromised by the elements within the COVID-19 ITSELF. However — “UN-vaccinated” persons who get COVID-19 and recover STILL CAN REBUILD THEIR IMMUNE SYSTEMS IF THEY FOLLOW A RECOVERY PROTOCOL. However, IMO, “vaccinated” persons, UNLESS they strictly follow such a recovery protocol, MAY NOT HAVE THAT POTENTIAL, due to the mechanisms of the COVID-19 “vaccines” they have in their bodies.

I moved both comments to

Thank you.
IMO, on top of everything else, it’s terrible to know that the Department of Defense in this country, in addition to the FDA and EcoHealth Alliance (among other persons and entities), were in on the “ground floor” of this entire disaster.

Gail Combs

The is a real blow. I thought that at least the military wasn’t thoroughly corrupt.


Really good opener today, DePat. Thank you.

I exposed Saint Jack in BIMD – Scoundrels Part 1. It is in the James Ed Reeves interview link that the Missouri Historical Society has archived. there will be a bit more discussion on him and the establishment GOP in the next two Scoundrels parts. Dem crime ring attorneyJim Ed had a good laugh with Jack about the Orton conviction after that all happened. Jack used stuff like that to get elected to the Senate, when they were all acting as bishops and knights on the same uniparty chess board.


Wow – ridiculous. Disgusting human trash in my view.


Thanks for the info.

Gail Combs

I just watched the Glen Beck interview of Tucker Carlson.

I was disappointed that neither of them understood Putin’s history lesson. Putin was showing that the Russian speaking part of Ukraine was RUSSIAN and had been for centuries.

However the real point of Putin’s History lesson was this was NOT ANCIENT HISTORY as Beck and Carlson indicated. It goes back to the formation of 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗼𝗻𝘄𝗲𝗮𝗹𝘁𝗵 𝗼𝗳 𝗜𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀. (Bet you never heard of that.)

First Minsk Agreement

We, the Republic of Belarus, the Russian Federation and the Republic of Ukraine, as founder states of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), which signed the 1922 Union Treaty, further described as the high contracting parties, conclude that the USSR has ceased to exist as a subject of international law and a geopolitical reality.

Taking as our basis the historic community of our peoples and the ties which have been established between them, taking into account the bilateral treaties concluded between the high contracting parties;

striving to build democratic law-governed states; intending to develop our relations on the basis of mutual recognition and respect for state sovereignty, ….

considering that further development and strengthening of relations of friendship, good-neighborliness and mutually beneficial co-operation between our states correspond to the vital national interests of their peoples and serve the cause of peace and security;

confirming our adherence to the goals and principles of the United Nations Charter, the Helsinki Final Act and other documents of the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe;

and committing ourselves to observe the generally recognized internal norms on human rights and the rights of peoples, we have agreed the following:

👉𝗔𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗰𝗹𝗲 𝟭 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗵𝗶𝗴𝗵 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗼𝗻𝘄𝗲𝗮𝗹𝘁𝗵 𝗼𝗳 𝗜𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗽𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀.



Article 5

The high contracting parties recognize and respect one another’s territorial integrity and the inviolability of existing borders within the Commonwealth.

They guarantee openness of borders, freedom of movement for citizens and of transmission of information within the Commonwealth.



Article 6

The member-states of the Commonwealth will co-operate in safeguarding international peace and security and in implementing effective measures for reducing weapons and military spending. They seek the elimination of all nuclear weapons and universal total disarmament under strict international control.

👉𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗮𝗿𝘁𝗶𝗲𝘀 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗰𝘁 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿’𝘀 𝗮𝘀𝗽𝗶𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗮𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘁𝘂𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗮 𝗻𝗼𝗻-𝗻𝘂𝗰𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗿 𝘇𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗮 𝗻𝗲𝘂𝘁𝗿𝗮𝗹 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲…

Then came Victoria Nuland and George Soros in 2014…

2014 — Who was Maidan Snipers’ Mastermind?

…As Washington’s Blog noted in March, “everyone agrees that the snipers were false flag terrorists sewing chaos and confusion. … they only disagree about who the responsible party is.”…. security forces and civilians were, as Parubiy says, killed somewhat “equally” by these snipers to create “violent civic unrest.” But there was a telling pattern to how different parts of that were timed.

First, consider how ten unarmed policemen were shot dead the night of February 18th, forcing a decision to bring in armed security forces. That allowed later killings to be realistically blamed on them….

Parubiy even claims he failed to stop the snipers on the way back out. After sneaking in and unleashing this mayhem, they walked away from the Maidan undetected, and “I think they escaped from Ukraine,” he told Euractiv.

But it was reported at the time that two snipers were caught by his teams… If they were caught red-handed, why doesn’t Parubiy mention these snipers now? Did they even exist, outside these vague reports? Were they real, but managed to escape? Or did Parubiy order them released? …

If they were caught red-handed, why doesn’t Parubiy mention these snipers now? Did they even exist, outside these vague reports? Were they real, but managed to escape? Or did Parubiy order them released? 



With Ukrainians all united but Moscow’s agents everywhere, the “security” chief told Euractiv, they needed an “overhaul” of “the entire security and defense sector,” and maybe civil society too, including “criminal groups” and “ethnic groups.”

The NATO allies had just heard the same and understood, promising “extensive support to the Ukrainian delegation” – including this false-flagging fascist thug – considering their “crucial role in ensuring peace and safety in Europe and the world.” Further, they “expressed readiness” to help in “reform” of the Parubiy’s defense and security sectors.

November 22, 2014 — Ukraine: Secretive Neo-Nazi Military Organization Involved in Euromaidan Sniper Shootings

by F. William Engdahl

…His [Former pro-Russian President] “crime” according to protest leaders was that he rejected an EU offer of a vaguely-defined associate EU membership that offered little to Ukraine in favor of a concrete deal with Russia that gave immediate €15 billion debt relief and a huge reduction in Russian gas import prices. Washington at that point went into high gear and the result today is catastrophe.

A secretive neo-nazi military organization reported linked to NATO played a decisive role in targeted sniper attacks and violence that led to the collapse of the elected government….

We have since learned that the Second Minsk Agreement was signed in BAD FAITH as a STALLING TACTIC to allow NATO to build up Ukraine militarily.


And that brings us to the second set of weird comments. That NAZIsm died with Hitler. WTF???

‘Nazism’ is NOT dead it just moved into the CIA and NATO! My article Spies, Spooks, Snakes and The Sea Eye Aye gets into that.
For example:Nazi war criminals became high ranking commanders in NATO after WW2

Once you understand that, this makes a lot more sense.

Strange Ukraine ‘Nationalists’ by F. William Engdahl

The leader of UNA-UNSO, Andriy Shkil, ten years ago became an adviser to Julia Tymoshenko. UNA-UNSO, during the US-instigated 2003-2004 “Orange Revolution”, backed pro-NATO candidate Viktor Yushchenko against his pro-Russian opponent, Yanukovich. UNA-UNSO members provided security for the supporters of Yushchenko and Julia Tymoshenko on Independence Square in Kiev in 2003-4.[4]

UNA-UNSO is also reported to have close ties to the German National Democratic Party (NDP). [5]

Ever since the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 the crack-para-military UNA-UNSO members have been behind every revolt against Russian influence. The one connecting thread in their violent campaigns is always anti-Russia. The organization, according to veteran US intelligence sources, is part of a secret NATO “GLADIO” organization, and not a Ukraine nationalist group as portrayed in western media. [6]

According to these sources, UNA-UNSO have been involved (confirmed officially) in the Lithuanian events in the Winter of 1991, the Soviet Coup d’etat in Summer 1991, the war for the Pridnister Republic 1992, the anti-Moscow Abkhazia War 1993, the Chechen War, the US-organized Kosovo Campaign Against the Serbs, and the August 8 2008 war in Georgia. According to these reports, UNA-UNSO para-military have been involved in every NATO dirty war in the post-cold war period, always fighting on behalf of NATO. “These people are the dangerous mercenaries used all over the world to fight NATO’s dirty war, and to frame Russia because this group pretends to be Russian special forces. THESE ARE THE BAD GUYS, forget about the window dressing nationalists, these are the men behind the sniper rifles,” these sources insist. [7] [Were THESE the ‘Russian Forces’ aka Mercenaries in Syria that the US under Trump took out?? And that is why there was no response from Putin? -GC]

👉If true that UNA-UNSO is not “Ukrainian” opposition, but rather a highly secret NATO force using Ukraine as base, it would suggest that the EU peace compromise with the moderates was likely sabotaged by the one major player excluded from the Kiev 21 February diplomatic talks—Victoria Nuland’s State Department.

F. William Engdahl BTW is a superb author.

Beck kept Tucker of the Putin topic and diverted and Tucker let him. Tucker will do interviews with more serious people. I ask myself who owns Beck?


Beck is a mentally unstable, cheeto-faced Trump-hater.


Gail Combs

I am well aware of that, however his chalkboards during the Trump years were well put together.


Have always appreciate Beck’s chalk talks.

  • Informative. Educational. Easy to follow.

Mark Levin was also a “Cruzbot” back in the day.
Though now both are better……
Still keep a side eye on them both.

Gail Combs

Levin was also pushing Convention of the States which is a method to trick Conservatives into supporting the complete rewriting of the Constitution.

Since I see this brought up at times:

Article V Convention Legislation filed in Congress shows how Applications will be counted: it’s not what Lobbyists promised you

These lobbyists have convinced too many State Legislators that our Framers said that when the federal government violates the Constitution, the solution is to get a convention to amend the ConstitutionOur Framers never said such a silly thing But that is what is behind the push for an Article V convention.

Article V of our Constitution provides two methods of amending the Constitution 1) Congress may propose amendments by two-thirds majority in both Houses; or 2) Congress, upon the applications of two-thirds of the State Legislatures, calls a convention where the Delegates may propose amendments. The second method has never been used – it’s dangerous!

Nevertheless, the pro-convention lobby has been assuring State Legislators that a Convention is perfectly safe because State Legislatures will control it: They will determine the amendments to be considered at the Convention; Congress can’t call a convention until Congress receives 34 applications from State Legislatures which ask for the same amendment; and Delegates to the convention may consider nothing but amendments requested by 34 State Legislatures.

If Congress calls a convention, would Congress or the Delegates to the Convention be constrained by the Lobbyists’ assurances to State Legislators?

Of course not! The Delegates – as Sovereign Representatives of The People – would have the self-evident Rightrecognized by the Declaration of Independence, “to alter or to abolish” our “Form of Government.” Accordingly, Congress isn’t empowered by Article V or anything else in the Constitution to call a limited convention restricted to considering only the amendments requested by 34 State Legislatures….


Correctamundo…. as Rush would say…. just a little spanish lingo 🙂

This is literally the ONLY check the states have on the Federal government since the 17th amendment passed. And it’s a nuclear warhead.

No wonder the Federal government has been able to run rampant. Who is going to toss a nuke?


I was disappointed that neither of them understood Putin’s history lesson. 

^^^ Was shaking my head that these two couldn’t see the obvious connections Putin was pointing out.

Beck, and I guess Tucker trashing Putin for being a murderous whatever…

  • ^^^ As IF the USG, DOJ, US IC does kill, murder people, off the books.

The Nazi is dead and gone, was way out to lunch.

Tucker either forgot, OR did NOT know, Briben sent Iran Billions of dollars prior to October 7.

Over all, I was disappointed with the discussion. Not really an interview. Beck talked entirely to much.

Gail Combs

Yes, it was very disappointing. It was like they were trying to get back into the good graces of the CIA by spouting nonsense.


Forgot to include a Key comment Tucker delivered in the closing minutes.

  :wpds_arrow:  Hierarchy of importance. Food. Water. Energy.

Me. The basics. Survival. Food. Water. Energy.

I saw where others were dropping their price some. That’s good to know.

Like a kid’s see-saw – one end down the other end up.


FoxNews headlines reported that some guy got bit by his pet Gila Monster and died.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

When I was a kid, gila monsters and beaded lizards (not bearded, beaded) were cited as the only two venomous lizards.

Komodos were thought by many to be venomous, but their deadliness was blamed on an “infectious bite.” Water buffalos, etc. bit by Komodo dragons would often die of infections from their bites.

As it turns out, no. Komodos really are venomous–their bite wounds won’t clot. And this may be true of other monitors as well. The reason for the infections is that water buffaloes bitten on the ankle by a Komodo end up walking into their wallows to try to soothe the wound, and the wallows are FULL of water buffalo (and other) poop.

I never got the impression that Komodo venom is actually on its own life-threatening, but even without it you need medical attention if one of them “tags” you if only because of the severity of the bite.


One might be inclined to think that modern Americans living in modern cities are immune from the threat of Komodo dragon bites…..but one would be wrong….

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Of course Komodos are not native to this area, but there’s always the chance that someone’s captive specimen will get you. (And a zoo animal is essentially that; as are people’s pets.)

(I do wonder if there is some area in the US where Komodo dragons would do well and become an invasive species if given the chance. Sort of like how Burmese pythons are spreading in Florida.)

It turns out that *every* snake and many lizards (including monitors like the Komodo, and even including bearded dragons) descends from a common ancestor that was venomous; many species have either lost the ability to produce venom, or retain it in such small measure no one considers them dangerous to humans (at least not because of venom):


Very interesting article. This theory started in about 2005 and is still being worked out.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

It says, basically, that every time they do a genetic scan, it’s consistent; if they look at actual anatomy, it isn’t. Which just says the gene is always there, but sometimes very much not used, not even vestigially.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

IOW to me the debate is over whether this is significant enough to make a clade or not. But then I am not a biologist so I might be missing some nuance.


You could do a needlepoint that says “Taxonomists are a Pain in the Ass.” and put it up over the door of every bio lab in the world with few complaints.

If you write any sort of book referring to any group of organisms, rampaging hordes of “lumper” and “splitter” taxonomists will alternately call down holy crusades upon you.

When I first got into tropical fishkeeping, nearly every South American cichlid was a Cichlasoma. A goodly portion of the cichlids in Lake Tanganyika were Lamprologus. Nearly all the mbuna of Lake Malawi were Pseudotropheus. Today, each is vilified as a .

Seriously, look what was done to Cichlasoma — — at least you knew it was found in the New World. Where the hell is an Amphilophus found?

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.

Psalm 91.The most powerful prayer from the Bible. God’s protection, healing 

#psalm91 #psalms #prayer

Pray Everyday


Thank you for this, and for all the wonderful inspirational items you post every day. Prayers ongoing for you here at and Marica’s blog Be well.


That is a very beautiful Psalm. Thank you!


Anyone watch the town hall last night? LMAO. RINO Laura kept interrupting Trump, and trying to redirect, he had NONE of it and kept getting HIS point out. I LOVED the potted PLANTS that kept asking dem talking point questions.

My runner up ” Mr Trump, the country is in such a mess, how can you be certain you will be able to fix it? Clue one of potted PLANT.. MISTER Trump, not PRESIDENT Trump. Clue two, how can YOU be certain YOU can fix it? (Biden’s mess) Trump SMASHED it.

He listed in 20 seconds ALL the good HE did from low inflation, low energy prices, to a secure border, to peace in the middle east (by crushing ISIS). He further stated that there was HISTORIC black, young, Latino, and Asian unemployment, not to mention very low unemployment over all. The he put the cap on the plant. No one took another countries AND while I was President. Then the death blow to the plant…after this follow up by Ingraham “but how can you be so sure you can do it?” Trump. Because I already did it once before… BANG.

Then my all time fav “winner” potted PLANT. Little leftist all meek looking, straight hair, long and oily looking, with big “do these horn rimmed glasses make me look smart”

She comes up and shyly says “Mr Trump with all the division in this country now, People (WHO) want to know how you are going to be able to bring us together, and they (WHO?) are concerned that you will enact POLITICAL revenge on your opponents, Independents and women would like to know (OH THOSE PEOPLE are who…LMAO) if you are going to act out political revenge, and how that would bring us together.”

LMAO if this chick was one a “conservative” and two a Trump voter, I’ll eat my gopher suit. Trump again, calmly listed the same accomplishments above and how successful, prosperous, and peaceful we all were until Covid. Then he moved in for the kill.

I am not big on revenge (let me translate…Cabal you are FOOKED) I want to heal the country, and the best way to do that (another Ingraham interruption, which Trump ignored and concluded) is to make people successful, so you could say my revenge, if there is such a thing (oh Cabal you are ROYALLY SCREWED) would be to be revenge by making people successful. BOOM, the leftist PLANT, picked up her jaw, and slinked away snaking, ” Thank you ”

You PLANTS and you too Laura FAILED. several times they tried to bait Trump into going into a tangent on Haley, the lawfare against him, Putin, and the 2020 steal. Each Time Trump remained focused on Beating BIDEN, and Making America Great Again. Calm, cool, collected, organized, sharp, thoughtful, on point and DEADLY to PLANTS.

Hell Trump offered to debate Biden ANYTIME, ANWHERE with ANYONE, even CNN as the moderator.

Let ol PRex translate, i speak Trump, and I also speak Cabal (it is WISE to know the language of your enemy)

Cabal: how are you gonna do it, (MAGA) it can’t be done we won’t let you, we will stop you, and Oh, by the way, WHAT are you going to do TO us.

Trump: I am going to make people rich, happy, successful, prosperous, safe, and fix the energy, border, foreign policy, and inflation problems Biden and the Cabal created..PDQ. I am going to do it so fast it will make you heads spin, and I am going to do it INSPITE of you. You will NOT be able to stop me, and I am going to make SURE MAGA and the prosperity I recreate; AGAIN, is going to last and be in good hands when I am gone,

PS, I am going to NUKE your sorry asses for what you did to me, my family, my colleagues’, my friends, and especially the American people and the WORLD. I am NOT going to tell you HOW or WHEN. But rest assured it will be SOON, SWIFT and JUST. YOU ARE SCREWED, and you will NEVER know when the shoe drops. Enjoy what little time you have left to ruin things, soon it will be time to pay the check! SOON, VERY SOON, BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

End translations

Oh, and one last thing, do not listen to who the MEDIA keeps telling you is Trump’s short VP list, it will be the same as who beat Haley in Nevada NONE of these candidates. Trump is merely trolling them. Yep he LOVES Tim Scott. Trump will NOT tell them too soon, it would give team Cabal time for dirt and blackmail. NOPE, you ALL will be surprised. It will be someone who COULD step in in a tragedy, and someone who will continue the policies Trump installs…IE NOT Tim Scott or the cast of RINOS named.


Thank you. Always good to see you on the board here.
One wonders how much each of the “potted PLANTS” were paid to make fools of themselves (Laura already got her payment from her employer) — and who paid them.


There were a few, and Ingraham was dutifully doing her best to interject. She FAILED.


Uh, p-rex,

Could you please be a little bit wrong so the rest of us have something to add? We don’t want to sound like parrots.

ThanQ in advance, from millions of deplorables


LOL ask Mrs Rex how wrong i am . LOL


[loud snort] [prolonged giggling]


If a man speaks in the forest, and there’s no woman to tell him he’s wrong, did he make a sound?

Ahhhh, but a woman colleague of mine once paraphrased an old saw, saying “A woman’s place is in the wrong” 😀

Gail Combs





As usual… I agree with you 100%.
Tim Scott? No.
Any of the named choices? No.
Has to be someone that will DESTROY “Them” should something happen to Trump.
General Flynn? Maybe.


Think more like someone they would not only hate but FEAR. Someone who knows what they did.




Prex… You do know that Laura (along with Ann Coulter and Dumbass Conway) were part of the “Elves” back in the Clinton era?


Yep. Friends close ENEMIES closer.


via The Burning Platform:

What is happening to the public? Mounting numbers of COVID-19 “vaccine”-induced illnesses, injuries, disabilities, and deaths. Mounting numbers of COVID-19 “vaccine”-aggravation of already-existing medical conditions. Mounting numbers of COVID-19 “vaccine”-re-establishment of medical conditions that were in remission prior to “vaccination.”

“The doctors are baffled.” Really?
One wonders what persons who took a Moderna modRNA COVID-19 “vaccine” and then presented with any of the above effects would think if they knew that the NIH / NIAID got a royalty payment from Moderna for the injection that messed up their body? Moderna and the NIH / NIAID (in other words, the federal government) co-own the Moderna “vaccines” patents.

Up to that time, all transactions were pointless 🙂

(ducks and runs from old 10-keys, FORTRAN manuals and compilers, and Pascal programming guides with IEEE 754 as implemented on HP PA-RISC 🙂 )…..

Very good news.

Very good news indeed!

Uranium and then thorium save the day…at least until the enviromentalist shitheads gin up some new complaint.


Katie Hopkins excerpt (approximately 10:35): “…basically, if I was to say it in complete layman’s terms, there is a pile of bodies that shouldn’t have died that no one can explain and no one’s trying to.

Rather than someone like the British Heart Foundation trying to explain why there are 40,000 people dead that shouldn’t be in 2019, and why there is 20,000 well actually 30,000 excess deaths in 2023 that shouldn’t be there, rather than anyone try and explain this, what they’ve done instead is change the way it’s being measured.

Make that pile of bodies disappear, so that no one has to answer the question of why are so many people dying unexpectedly… rather, change the number, change the way we measure the number of people dying, so no one has to answer to it…

How long can that sustain for, and how bonkers is it that everybody is supposed to go right, okay, yeah, sure, we changed the methodology so those dead people now aren’t dead…”



Katie Hopkins is always a pleasure to listen to. Factually delivering reality, in Readers Digest terms. Love the sarcasm.   :wpds_lol: 

Every time I heard Katie talk about the “new methodology” to calculate excess deaths, replacing the old methodology, I thought of CDC Redefining Vaccines.

PURE government betrayal of the public.

I’m not sure I agree with Dr. Merritt that all cancers are caused by parasites. Yes, some have pretty much proven to be. However, they’ve also proven that funguses (fungi??) are the cause of some cancers.

But I know that dewormers don’t stop all cancers. If they did, it wouldn’t be a leading cause of death in dogs. Dogs get dewormed a LOT more frequently than humans do. Here, dogs get heartworm medication once a month. That’s true all over the country. That medication doesn’t just kill heartworms but all kinds of other parasites as well. My dog got that medication every month for 11 years, and still she got cancer, as did my last dog before her.

So I don’t think we can simplify what causes cancer down to parasites or fungi. Ivermectin and Fenben both do more than just deworm. We know ivermectin also kills viruses. Many medicines do more than one thing. So the fact they work so well for cancer doesn’t mean that cancer is parasites.


Right Linda. It’s not that simple. Take lung cancer and smoking for example.


My eye doctor got lung cancer he never smoked.


Lots of things can cause lung cancer. Asbestos exposure, radon gas, working in a coal mine, tire factory, or textile mill.


Yes he could have had some of that. His family was from India and lived in Pennsylvania..

Actually Radon was linked with LESS lung cancer.

Dr Petr Beckmann wrote about it in the newsletter “Access to Energy” in the 1990s

The Anti-nuclear types freaked out and ran with the Radon BAD that created an entire ‘scare’ industry since granite releases radon gas and most houses in New England have granite basements or are built on granite ledge.

It is amazing the amount of Bull Schiff the American people have been fed.


Linda, you’re no friend of click-bait headlines. Shame on you.  😂

One problem is that many people think of cancer as a disease; it’s really a whole bunch of different things that manifest in similar ways…but can have different ultimate causes.

That’s why I don’t buy the notion that there is a cure for cancer.

I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if there are cures (or good preventatives) for many kinds of cancers, maybe even most of them, but I doubt it’s one cure (‘the cure for cancer’), and I doubt we can cure every kind of cancer yet.


My grandmother has thyroid cancer . I believe the aftermath of WWII had something to do with it. My two dogs had cancer both bladder. One dog i know how he got it my neighbor in St Louise had lawn care sprayer spray his lawn. If the wind was right the toxins flew into my garden also when it rained. I was assured it was not toxic. Well yes it was because my apple trees stopped blooming.
When I moved to OH where I now live the people had lawn care also. There was no bird no worms in the ground no insects nothing. We never sprayed do not believe in it. Now we have all sort of birds all kind of insect and plenty of bees.
I wish people would not be so obsessed with their lawns let the dandelion grow 🙂


I don’t use anything at all in my garden except composted manure and natural stuff. I have earthworms so big they look like snakes, all kinds of bees and insects, birds, and hummingbird moths (which are very weird but cool).

This used to be the way people managed the land. And things were healthier.

And yes, I have dandelions and weeds! And that is just fine.
