2024·03·09 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

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

January 6 Tapes?

Paging Speaker Johnson…this is your conscience calling you out on broken promises.

For all your high talk about your Christian moral background…you’re looking less and less like you have any kind of moral background.

If You are a Patriot and Don’t Loathe RINOs…

Let’s talk about RINOs, and why they are the lowest form of life in politics.

Many patriots have been involved with politics, often at the grassroots, for decades. We’ve fought, and fought, and fought and won the occasional illusory small victory.

Yet we can’t seem to win the war, even when we have BIG electoral wins.

I am reminded of something. The original Star Trek had an episode titled Day of the Dove. It was one of the better episodes from the third season, but any fan of the original series will tell you that’s a very low bar. Still, it seems to get some respect; at a time when there were about 700 episodes of Star Trek in its various incarnations out there, it was voted 99th best out of the top 100.

In sum, the plot is that an alien entity has arranged for 39 Enterprise crew, and 39 Klingons, to fight each other endlessly with swords and other muscle-powered weapons. The entity lives off of hostile emotions, you see and it wants a captive food source. (The other 400 or so Enterprise crew are trapped below decks and unable to help.) Each side has its emotions played and amplified by the alien entity; one Enterprise junior officer has false memories implanted of a brother who was killed by Klingons. The brother didn’t even exist.

Even people killed in a sword fight miraculously heal so they can go do it again.

The second best line of the episode is when Kang, the Klingon captain, notes that though they have won quite a number of small victories including capturing Engineering, can’t seem to actually finally defeat the Enterprise crew. He growls, “What power is it that feeds our battle yet starves our victory?*”

Indeed. He may have been the bad guy, but his situation should sound familiar.

We are a majority in this country. We have a powerful political party in our corner. There is endless wrangling.

And yet,

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

In our case, that power is the RINOs in our midst. They specialize in caving when on the verge of victory. Think of Obamacare’s repeal failing…by one Republican vote. Think of the way we can never seem to get spending under control (and now our entire tax revenue goes to pay interest on the debt; anything the government actually does now is with borrowed money).

We have a party…that refuses to do what we want it to do, and that refusal is institutionalized. If you’ve been involved with GOP politics, but haven’t seen this, it’s because you refuse to see it. Or because you are part of the problem yourself. (If so, kindly gargle some red fuming nitric acid to clear the taste of shit out of your mouth, and let those not part of the problem alone so they can read this.)

We fight to elect people, who then take a dive when in office. But it’s not just the politicians in office, it’s the people behind the scenes, the leaders of the national, state and county branches of the party. Their job is to ensure that real patriots never get onto the general election ballot. They’re allowed a few failures…who can then become token conservatives who will somehow never manage to win (Jordan), or can be compromised outright (Loren Boebert).

That way it doesn’t actually matter who has a congressional majority. I remember my excitement when the GOP took the Senate in 1980. But all that did was empower a bunch of “moderate” puddles of dog vomit like…well for whatever reason forty years later the most memorable name is Pete Domenici. And a couple of dozen other “moderates” who simply had no interest in doing what grassroots people in their party–those same grassroots people who had worked so hard to elect them–wanted them to do.

Oh, they’ll put up a semblance of a fight…but never win. And they love it when we fight the Dems instead of fighting them. Just like that alien entity, whose motto surely was “Let’s you and him fight. It’ll be delicious!”

If you think about it, your entire political involvement has come to nothing because of these walking malignant tumors.

That should make you good and mad.

The twenty five who blocked Jordan, and the hundred people who took that opportunity to stab Jordan in the back in the secret ballot should make you good and mad.

I’ll close this with another example of RINO backstabbing, an infuriating one close to home.

In my county, the GOP chair is not a RINO. She got elected when the grassroots had had enough of the RINOs. Unfortunately the state organization is full of RINOs, and the ousted county RINOs have been trying to form a new “Republican Party” and get the state GOP to recognize them as the affiliate. I’m honestly amazed it hasn’t happened yet.

In other words those shitstains won’t just leave when they get booted out; they’ll try to destroy what they left behind. It’s an indication that they know we know how important that behind-the-scenes party power is.

So they must be destroyed. That’s the only way they’ll ever stop.

We cannot win until the leeches “on our side” get destroyed.

What power is it that feeds our battle yet starves our victory?*

We know it. What is going to be done about it?

*NOTE: The original line was actually “What power is it that supports our battle yet starves our victory.” I had mis-remembered it as feeds. When I checked it, it sure enough was “supports” and that’s what I originally quoted. On further reflection, though, I realized my memory was actually an improvement over the reality, because feeds is a perfect contrast with starves. I changed it partway through the day this originally posted, but now (since this is a re-run) it gets rendered this way from the start.

If one must do things wrong, one should do them wrong…right.

RINOs an Endangered Species?
If Only!

According to Wikipoo, et. al., the Northern White Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum cottoni) is a critically endangered species. Apparently two females live on a wildlife preserve in Sudan, and no males are known to be alive. So basically, this species is dead as soon as the females die of old age. Presently they are watched over by armed guards 24/7.

Biologists have been trying to cross them with the other subspecies, Southern White Rhinoceroses (Rhinoceri?) without success; and some genetic analyses suggest that perhaps they aren’t two subspecies at all, but two distinct species, which would make the whole project a lot more difficult.

I should hope if the American RINO (Parasitus rectum pseudoconservativum) is ever this endangered, there will be heroic efforts not to save the species, but rather to push the remainder off a cliff. Onto punji sticks. With feces smeared on them. Failing that a good bath in red fuming nitric acid will do.

But I’m not done ranting about RINOs.

The RINOs (if they are capable of any introspection whatsoever) probably wonder why they constantly have to deal with “populist” eruptions like the Trump-led MAGA movement. That would be because the so-called populists stand for absolutely nothing except for going along to get along. That allows the Left to drive the culture and politics.

Given the results of our most recent elections, the Left will now push harder, and the RINOs will now turn even squishier than they were before.

I well remember 1989-1990 in my state when the RINO establishment started preaching the message that a conservative simply couldn’t win in Colorado. Never mind the fact that Reagan had won the state TWICE (in 1984 bringing in a veto-proof state house and senate with him) and GHWB had won after (falsely!) assuring everyone that a vote for him was a vote for Reagan’s third term.

This is how the RINOs function. They push, push, push the line that only a “moderate” can get elected. Stomp them when they pull that shit. Tell everyone in ear shot that that’s exactly what the Left wants you to think, and oh-by-the-way-Mister-RINO if you’re in this party selling the same message as the Left…well, whythefuckexactly are you in this party, you lying piece of rancid weasel shit?

In Defense of Ranked Choice Voting

One of the biggest obstacles to direly-needed change is RINOs, and one of the weapons in their arsenal is the “Wasted Vote” argument.

Periodically a third party has arisen, trying to hold RINOs to account by putting pressure on them from outside of the party, since doing so from the inside has historically done very little good. But, even if you find a third party candidate who perfectly reflects your views, you’re likely to vote for the RINO anyway. Why? Because if you don’t, the Democrat might win, and that would be even worse. So if you vote for that third party (that few will vote for), you’re throwing your vote away and increasing the likelihood of the Democrat winning. (It’s half as much a gain for the Democrat, as actually voting for the Democrat would be. Not as much, but half as much. Because although you denied the R your vote, you did not flip your vote to the Democrat.)

The Republican Party Establishment knows you don’t love them. But they know you hate the Democrats worse, and they use that to continue to herd you into supporting them. With gritted teeth you cast your vote, but your vote counts the same whether you cast it enthusiastically. And the other alternative, pissing on the voting apparatus to express your actual feelings, is probably a felony.

But what if you could vote for that third party without increasing the chances of the Dem walking away with the prize?

This is what ranked choice voting, or instant runoff voting, can do provided it is properly implemented. (And this includes the votes, and only genuine votes, being counted honestly, of course. However, I’m going to compare it to what we have today, and pretend that is honestly done too. RCV can’t work if it’s not honestly administered, just like our current system isn’t working because it isn’t honestly administered.)

The idea behind RCV is to vote by expressing your order of preference. You could vote for the Patriot Party, then for the RINO Party as your second choice (and ignore the Democrat, the Green, the Overt Socialist Schmuckmonkey Party, etc).

What does this do? It nullifies the wasted vote argument. Your vote will be counted for the Patriot party, first, then instead of it being “wasted” when the Patriot Party loses, it ends up going to the RINO. Actually, it’s just barely possible that the Patriot Party would actually beat the RINO, if people weren’t all individually afraid to vote for it.

It’s just like the famous “Prisoner’s Dilemma” where your fear of other peoples’ actions prevents you from doing the optimal thing–and vice-versa. As long as Job Lowe is afraid to vote Patriot because he’s afraid you’ll vote RINO, you’ll have to vote RINO because you fear that Job Lowe will, because he fears you will.

So on the whole I like RCV. It gives you a no-risk way to vote against the RINO scum, and in favor of someone who deserves your vote.

The problem is, as done here in the US, it comes packaged with a “jungle primary.” A bunch of candidates get to put their name out there, and the top four (or so) candidates get onto the “main” ballot. This gives party establishments their way around the threat of a good third party bumping them off. Because they know that few people bother with primaries, and third parties don’t have the resources to run in a primary…so they throw two or three establishment hacks into the primary and they will probably beat the third party. The result is the RINOs end up with two of the four slots in the general election, and the Dems get the other two. Now there’s suddenly no third party candidate on the ballot at all.

If we were to combine RCV with the present system where each party could nominate exactly one candidate to appear on the November ballot, or at the very least, ensure minor parties could get onto the ballot with at least one candidate regardless of the primary, we would be getting somewhere, but the establishment is smarter than we like to give them credit for. They will support the jungle primary + RCV “solution” rather than the more appropriate one-candidate-per-party + RCV solution.

It’s not RCV that is the problem, it’s the primary structure grafted onto it.


It says “Justice” on the picture.

And I’m sure someone will post the standard joke about what the fish thinks about the situation.

But what is it?

Here’s a take, from a different context: It’s about how you do justice, not the justice that must be done to our massively corrupt government and media. You must properly identify the nature of a person, before you can do him justice.

Ayn Rand, On Justice (speaking through her character John Galt, in Atlas Shrugged):

Justice is the recognition of the fact that you cannot fake the character of men as you cannot fake the character of nature, that you must judge all men as conscientiously as you judge inanimate objects, with the same respect for truth, with the same incorruptible vision, by as pure and as rational a process of identification—that every man must be judged for what he is and treated accordingly, that just as you do not pay a higher price for a rusty chunk of scrap than for a piece of shining metal, so you do not value a rotter above a hero—that your moral appraisal is the coin paying men for their virtues or vices, and this payment demands of you as scrupulous an honor as you bring to financial transactions—that to withhold your contempt from men’s vices is an act of moral counterfeiting, and to withhold your admiration from their virtues is an act of moral embezzlement—that to place any other concern higher than justice is to devaluate your moral currency and defraud the good in favor of the evil, since only the good can lose by a default of justice and only the evil can profit—and that the bottom of the pit at the end of that road, the act of moral bankruptcy, is to punish men for their virtues and reward them for their vices, that that is the collapse to full depravity, the Black Mass of the worship of death, the dedication of your consciousness to the destruction of existence.

Ayn Rand identified seven virtues, chief among them rationality. The other six, including justice, she considered subsidiary because they are essentially different aspects and applications of rationality.

—Ayn Rand Lexicon (aynrandlexicon.com)

Justice Must Be Done.

Trump, it is supposed, had some documents.

Biden and company stole the country.

I’m sure enough of this that I put my money where my mouth is.

The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system. (This doesn’t necessarily include deposing Joe and Hoe and putting Trump where he belongs, but it would certainly be a lot easier to fix our broken electoral system with the right people in charge.)

Nothing else matters at this point. Talking about trying again in 2024 or 2026 is pointless otherwise. Which is not to say one must never talk about this, but rather that one must account for this in ones planning; if fixing the fraud in the system is not part of the plan, you have no plan.

This will necessarily be piecemeal, state by state, which is why I am encouraged by those states working to change their laws to alleviate the fraud both via computer and via bogus voters. If enough states do that we might end up with a working majority in Congress and that would be something Trump never really had.

Or much more seriously, and much more grimly…the planet that should be named Hell.

Actually, I’m going to get one bit of semi-related trivia out of the way.

Planets and Metals

The Ancients recognized seven planets: The Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. (And yes, two of those are no longer regarded as planets. Back then the definition was basically anything that moved in a regular pattern against the celestial sphere. This excluded comets and shooting stars, and of course the (as far as they could tell) “fixed stars,” but not much else.)

There were also seven recognized metals: Iron, tin, lead, gold, silver, mercury and copper.

The seven metals were commonly associated with the seven planets, to the point in fact where the planetary symbols were often used for the metals. Mercury was of course associated with mercury. The Moon was associated with silver.

And Venus was associated with copper.

Oddly enough, the association of planets to metals continued into the modern era. Uranium, discovered in 1789 (well sort of), was named after Uranus. When neptunium was synthesized, it was known to be uranium’s neighbor to the right, and so it was named after Uranus’s neighbor in the solar system, Neptune. And continuing the trend, plutonium, the element after neptunium, after Pluto, then regarded as the planet after Neptune. Of course Pluto got demoted.

But that isn’t actually the first time that a metallic element got named after a planet…which then got demoted! Consider the case of Ceres (discovered 1801) and cerium.

OK now Venus.

Venus is very easy to spot. If it’s above the horizon at night but you are wearing three paper bags over your head, have your eyes shut, and are facing the wrong way, you might miss it.

It’s the brightest object in the night sky, except for the Moon.

Because Venus is one of those objects that orbits the Sun, but is closer to the Sun than we are, it will always be relatively close to the Sun on the celestial sphere, however its maximum distance is roughly 60 degrees, which is far enough away that it will hang around for as long as four hours after sunset, depending on a bunch of other factors (like the time of year and your latitude). Or, conversely, it could rise four hours before sunrise.

This dual nature at first confused the ancients, but they quickly realized that that super bright “morning star” and the super-bright “evening star” were the same thing. The Sumerians, one of the earliest civilizations of Mesopotamia (and perhaps the oldest anywhere), had figured it out. The Greeks didn’t start out with that memo, though, and initially named the morning star Phosphorus and the evening star Hesperus. Pythagoras, 6th century BCE, was credited with (re-)figuring it out.

Mercury and Venus’s habit of sticking close to the Sun ought to have been a clue that perhaps the Sun was at the center of things, rather than the Earth, but as far as I can tell, few took that seriously before Copernicus (published and died, 1543). And even Copernicus wasn’t believed.

Galileo in 1610 looked at Venus with a telescope and over time saw an almost full set of phases. He didn’t see a full Venus, nor a new Venus, but he saw almost everything else, and as you can see in the diagrams below, that shows that Venus must orbit the Sun, not move back and forth between us and the Sun.

Above: Venus orbiting the sun, displaying crescent and gibbous phases. Below, hypothetical Venus on an epicycle, whose center in turn orbits the Earth. It only ever shows crescent phases. (If the epicycle were beyond the sun, we’d see nothing but gibbous and even full phases.)

It’s also significant that the crescent Venus is much, much larger than the gibbous Venus. This size change counteracts the fact that normally a crescent should be less bright than a gibbous phase, because less of the disk we see is lit.

Nor was that the end…not by any means!!!…of the contributions to astronomy that looking at Venus with earthbound telescopes would make!

And this is in spite of the fact that Venus shows us no surface detail. Imagine a brightly-lit ping pong ball. That’s Venus. Blast white, no markings. We couldn’t tell how fast it was rotating. Or even if it was rotating. We did know that it’s a sphere, because of the phases. But that’s it.

As for the Solar System as a whole, Kepler had by 1611 demonstrated that the planets move around the Sun in elliptical orbits, with the Sun at one focus, and that their rates of travel were such that a line connecting the planet and the Sun would sweep out equal areas in equal times (meaning the planet moved faster both in angle seen from the Sun and in absolute terms, when it was closer to the Sun).

He was able to establish relative sizes of the orbits. Setting the Earth’s orbit’s size to 1 unit, Venus’s orbit was roughly 0.72 units in size. (Measuring half the long axis of the ellipse, also called the semi-major axis.) This “unit” of Kepler’s survives as our present-day “Astronomical Unit” (AU).

He didn’t know how big an astronomical unit was. No one knew. The only thing we did know was that it was at least two million miles, because attempts to measure the distance to the Sun by triangulation had been made, and failed. We’d have got a good reading with these methods if the Sun were less than two million miles away. (Similar methods had worked with the Moon.) It didn’t help that it’s hard to triangulate against background stars when you cannot see them because it’s daytime!

But what if we could watch Venus cross the face of the Sun?

You know, like this:

(Venus is three to four times closer to us than is the Sun when it is between us and the Sun, yet still looks puny by comparison. That should tell you something about the Sun.)

Imagine watching one of these “transits” from one place on Earth and noting where against the Sun’s disk Venus was. Meanwhile someone else thousands of miles away does the same thing and takes his notes. Since Venus is closer than the Sun, it should appear in two different places; if you know how far apart your observers are, you can triangulate.

Better yet, time how long it takes to cross. That will nail down, far more accurately, the length of Venus’s path across the Sun, and you can compare the two times, lay down two lines of corresponding length, and really get a good read on the difference in Venus’s apparent position on the sun.

This was first attempted in 1639, by astronomers in Yorkshire and Manchester. They weren’t very far apart, and they got an answer indicating an astronomical unit was about 60 million miles. That was ten times larger than most people had…well, basically, guessed.

This was done again in 1761, with people observing from Russia, Newfoundland, and the Cape of Good Hope. Much better circumstances and equipment! And again in 1769, with people in St. Petersburg, Baja California, and Norway. Combined, the answer was 153 million km, give or take 1 million km. That’s about 2% off the current value (which we know down to a hundred meters). Not bad!

The 1761 cooperation is particularly striking because Europe was still in the throes of the Seven Years War, and Russia and England were on opposite sides. In some ways it’s better to think of that war as World War Zero. Our “French and Indian War” was basically a side-theater of that mess…though it was also the start of that mess. (An excellent argument can be made that Colonel George Washington started the whole thing. Fortunately he became more astute by 1775.)

OK, so why did they sit around twiddling their thumbs between 1639 and 1761?

Because Venus transits are rare. They occur in pairs eight years apart…but those pairs, in turn, are over a hundred years apart!

How does that make sense?

Venus “laps” Earth almost exactly every 1.6 Earth years, crossing between us and the Sun. Well almost crossing. The two orbits are not in the same plane; they are in two different planes. The two planes intersect on a certain line, but if Venus laps us anywhere else other than that line through the Sun (either side of the line), Venus will appear to pass north or south of the Sun.

In the diagram above, the red line represents the line that is the intersection of the two orbital planes. Only if the Earth, Sun and Venus are all lined up on that line (on either side of the Sun) will we see a transit. (There’s a tiny bit of tolerance here because the Sun has width..you can be a little bit off that line, but not much.)

So imagine there is a Venus transit. Wait 1.6 years, and Venus laps us…but we’re 6/10ths of the way around the sun at that point, and the lapping does not happen where the planes intersect. Clean miss. Then again at 3.2 years, 4.8 years, 6.4 years…all misses. Only something-point-zero and something-point-five will work. But the next lapping is at 8.0 years. Bingo, another transit. So that explains the 8 year pairings. But why isn’t it every eight years? Because the lappings aren’t exactly every 1.6 years. They’re just a little bit off. Eight years after the second transit in the example, the lapping will happen, but slightly earlier and not quite close enough to the line of intersection to be a transit. And so we wait. And wait. And wait. Eventually things line up on the other side of the Sun and we get two more transits.

So, we had a transit in 2004 on June 8. And another in 2012 on June 5. Note just three days shy of exactly eight years later. The next lapping would have been 2020 on about June 2, and that’s far enough from the place where the planes intersect to ensure Venus does not cross in front of the Sun’s disk as seen from Earth.

The next transit is…wait for it…in 2117, on the 10th of December. Earth and Venus will be on the other side of the Sun when this happens, going through the other half of the line of intersection of their two orbital planes.

I observed the 2012 transit with eclipse glasses and took pictures with the same craptastic solar filter I used for the annular eclipse last year. I do remember that triangle of sunspots from the picture I pasted in. See below. The sunspots are quite faint. and the orientation is a bit different.

I Lied. Now, really about Venus.

I’ve talked about Venus’s orbit already, but I spotted this cool animation and you can watch the four terrestrial planets orbit the Sun in it. Note that there are faint circles every 0.5 AU you can compare the elliptical orbits with, the circles look elliptical because the diagram is at an oblique angle.

Venus orbits the Sun every 224.7 Earth days. And at present it’s the closest orbit to circular of any of the planets. That period works out to Venus orbiting almost exactly 13 times while Earth orbits 8 times. (That’s logical, it laps us 5 times in eight years, so it has orbited 8+5=13 times while we’ve poked along.)

Here’s a true color picture of Venus taken by the MESSENGER probe as it flew by, using Venus for a gravity assist (“slingshot”).

There’s only the slightest hint of banding, like clouds overlying clouds.

In ultraviolet light, though, you can see more:

Venus is a completely cloud-bound world. It’s almost as big as Earth, and seems like it could almost be a twin.

There was a belief clear up into the 1950s that Venus was a younger world than Earth (and Mars was older), so it was expected that under all those clouds Venus could be a swampy world with primitive life. It’d no doubt be warmer, but with the cloud layer blocking the Sun, maybe not much warmer than Earth. Maybe we could even live there!

Oh boy did that ever turn out wrong. We (well the USSR actually) sent our first probe, Venera 1, in 1961. And there have been many others since.

The surface temperature of Venus is 737K or about 867 F.

Lead melts at 621 F. I guess we would need something else for bullets there.

The atmosphere turns out to be almost pure carbon dioxide, with a pressure 92 times as great as our atmosphere at sea level.

And the upper layers of it are sulfuric acid.

So we have a baked, dessicated world with sulfuric acid…not a bad match for Hell.

We’ve managed to land spacecraft and have them survive for minutes to a couple of hours. (The USSR had better luck there, we did better with Mars.) Here’s one of the pictures, from Venera 9.

And another from Venera 14:

In fact here: https://www.planetary.org/articles/every-picture-from-venus-surface-ever is a compilation of every image ever taken from the surface. Only four spacecraft have managed it, all of them Russian or Soviet.

Nevertheless we do know quite a bit about Venus’s surface, because we’ve mapped it with radar from orbiting satellites, including Magellan in the early 90s. We’ve got topographic maps.

It turns out there are a lot of volcanoes on Venus (more hellishness). There are continents–sizable plateaus just like our continents are, but without oceans overfilling the low spots. There’s no chance of plate tectonics because no water is around as a lubricant for the plates. Nevertheless, it appears as though the entire surface gets catastrophically replaced every few hundred million years.

So here is the topographic map.

One last thing about Venus that stands out, and that is its rotation. It rotates once every 243 days…that’s longer than its year. So it seems as if Venus might almost be tidally locked, except that in fact it’s not even close. It rotates backward. (And that is a big WTF!)

The net effect is, someone standing on the surface of Venus would see the sun rise in the west, and set in the east, with the day lasting 116.75 earth days. Except you would never see sunrise or sunset with that thick layer of clouds.

Venus serves as a poster child for “runaway greenhouse effect” on account of the carbon dioxide, the heat, and the lack of water. It is believed it warmed up just a bit too much a few billion years ago, thanks largely to the early atmosphere being largely carbon dioxide (that was true here too; we needed life to make oxygen from the carbon dioxide); the oceans evaporated and the water molecules escaped. (Water vapor escapes Earth, too, but very very slowly. We’re more massive and cooler than Venus.) More carbon dioxide was released from the rocks which just made things worse. So it’s a favorite of the Global Warming crowd.

Admittedly, if we were that close the Sun we’d be hosed too. But we’re not. And they’ve fudged their data as to what is actually happening.

Joe Biden is Asshoe

China is in the White House, because Joe Biden is in the White House, and Joe Biden is identically equal to China. China is Asshoe. Therefore, Joe Biden is Asshoe.

But of course the much more important thing to realize:

Nicotine does more than keep covid in check.

It flat out prevents covid from getting a foothold.

Smoking cigarettes is good for you. Who knew?

Patches would most likely be better.


Same for vapes.


Part of the reason for the war on Vape just months before the China Virus came ashore. The other part being Deep State needed to map out the best ways to hysteria and test drive the panic routes.


Over here the grabbing govmt are talking about putting tobacco tax on vape juice. But try and justify it by saying that by putting up the tax on cigarettes also will somehow make it OK.


I switched to little cigars years ago. No additives and cheaper because no cigarette taxes.


But smoking gives me an excuse to exit from unpleasant social situations – “Excuse me, I’m going to step outside and have a smoke.”

Way too handy to give up now, after 60 years.

Looks like they definitely want to suppress this.


I think I have mentioned before that 80% of our immune system is our gut. Anything that disrupts it is de facto disrupting immunity.

If vitamin I is protecting the gut biome, it protects immunity. Which, by itself, is enough reason to use it on an ongoing, perhaps intermittent, basis.

Frightening to me is the fact that apparently, the effects of parasites on the gut biome have not really been adequately studied:

“Although it is not yet clear whether parasites change the microbiome, or microbiome composition influences the risk of getting a parasitic infection, these findings pave the way for further research to answer these questions.”


Stuff like this is pretty basic, I would think. Why aren’t scientists more interested? There’s probably no money in it.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Oh, this is ALL making sense.

Parasites like WORMS are COMPETITORS of bacteria in the gut. The parasites surely secrete things that work against bacteria which are problematic for those parasites. We would expect the bacteria to evolve to fight back, or at least defend.

What if that weird, “rare” (only found once) golf course bacterium (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streptomyces_avermitilis, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivermectin#History) which produces ivermectin, was actually something deposited through defecation by an organism (like a bird or a mammal, even a bat) which normally hosts the bacterium in its gut, in a symbiotic relationship that kills parasites for the host AND viruses for the host and the bacteria?

Thus, it’s NOT an accident that ivermectin kills parasites, but “natural DNA intelligence” acquired through evolution. This explains both the “rarity” of the bacterium (it’s “hiding” in some species) and why it does what it does.

Thus, ivermectin is doing something for us (and our microbiome friends) that it does for birds, bats, or some other species which needs to protect their gut microbiomes from viruses, and its host from parasites.

Progressive Education and the Destruction of America: PART 2

As my previous articles in the Depopulation Series displays, the early 1970s is when the Cabal realized the earth was headed into a possible Ice Age and used that to scare world leaders into going along with their Depopulation agenda.

The classified National Security Study Memorandum NSSM 200 aka the 1974 Kissinger Report reveals Rockefeller mouth piece Kissinger was talking Global COOLING to world leaders while another Rockefeller mouth piece, Maurice Strong was screaming about Global Warming at the First Earth Summit (1972) to the public. Also do not forget it was Kissinger who PICKED Klaus Scwab to organize the World Economic Forum in 1971, the year Nixon took the USA off the Gold Standard.

👉To make the masses BELIEVE in the Global Warming LIE the cabal had to CONTROL SCIENCE. Remember in 1976 Hays and Shacklton published the paper with concrete evidence to support Milankovitch’s theory. They were not the first but their paper was the most accepted.

Gastroenterologists like Dr. Sabine Hazan.

Her laboratory, Progenabiome, was the first to document the entire sequence of SARS-CoV-2 in the stools as opposed to the PCR test. She pointed out that microbiome research through the stools presents the whole picture of the virus instead of the PCR, which is merely a tiny piece of the virus…


As my vet once told me, vets spend a lot of time with their arms, up to the shoulder up the anus of horses and cows…

Lab techs spend a lot of time looking at stool samples of both humans and animals.

And people with farm animals get used to shoveling Shit… Which is a LOT better than dealing with the really yucky SCHIFF.

The spike protein in the COVID-19 virus, which is ALSO in the COVID-19 “vaccines”, kills gut flora AND other cell parts and mechanisms, ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE MITOCHONDRIAL, TELOMERE, AND ENDOTHELIUM LEVELS IN THE BODY. The spike protein does this by damaging / destroying the natural “breathing” process (aerobic respiration) of the cells in these areas.

Yours Truly: There is a discussion of COVID-19 spike protein inflammation / destruction of the GI tract in this article.

Of course, Big Pharma / the DeepState / WEF Cabal / CCP, WHO, Bill Gates, and other entities, want to suppress or eliminate research and papers proving that IVM prevents and treats COVID-19 and also mitigates / reverses damage done by COVID-19 infection and the COVID-19 “vaccines.”

This is interesting, because concentrations of ivermectin will be very high in the gut, and we know that ivermectin binds to the spike protein. SO – if the spike protein has nasty effects on “good” bacterial cells that support health, and ivermectin is something that EVOLVED to protect its producing bacteria (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streptomyces_avermitilis) from other organisms by knocking out their products (like the spike protein), then this all makes sense.

The natural source for Bifidobacteria is fermented veggies. Like cabbage and cucumber pickles.

I started to ferment a few years ago, and I haven’t bought a pickle of any kind since. Or sauerkraut. Nothing is as good as a homemade fermented pickle. They actually sort of “fizz” on your tongue. Indescribable, really.

Also do not forget mucking up the digestive tract and bacteria.

That spider is HUGE!


knocking over the telephone pole was a nice touch .



That’s probably a man in a spider suit, now that I think about it.

I guess it would have to be two men, working together in one suit, using their legs as legs and their arms as legs.

That couldn’t have been easy.


It’s an actual tarantula, backlit, superimposed on a desert highway. Trying to do it as some sort of puppet would be too complicated and expensive.



Last edited 4 months ago by scott467

actually, according to this, they used life-like models of bugs that were controlled by puppeteers…

read thru it...



Many of the movies relied on puppets (ants from “Them”; the mantis from “The Deadly Mantis”), but the particular scene from your 1:02 post looks like simple optical printing (especially because the spider is so dark).


Whatever it is, it’s definitely NOT two guys in a spider suit.

I mean, come on… two guys in a spider suit… really?


Gail Combs

More likely a model train type setup with a real spider.


That’s my guess too.

I was kidding about the spider suit. I laughed so hard about that last night I was almost crying.

When I woke up today, it was the first thing I thought about, and I started laughing again 😂

My friends and I used to do that all the time. Somebody would bring up a subject or make an observation, and usually my roommate or I (but anybody really, whoever seized the moment) would make some absurd comment that couldn’t possibly be true or accurate, and then move on, like it was nothing.

The key was to keep a straight face, and just let the other people there ponder what you said for a moment, trying to figure out if you were crazy, or if they just didn’t understand what you meant…

If I was taking the lead, my roommate could usually tell when I was doing it, and vice-versa, so the bigger challenge was to try to fool each other, not just the rest of our regular crew, about 7 or 8 of us usually, including girlfriends.

But if he recognized that I was messing with everybody, he would play along, and vice-versa.

Eventually one of our other friends would say something like “Hey, wait a second, that can’t be right, you guys are *&^#%ing with us.” 😂

And that’s when it gets harder, because you have to keep going with the absurdity in real time, but keep it at least semi-coherent or remotely plausible, sort of like doing improv comedy, and keep a straight face.

Like Monty Python stuff, and SNL, which we watched a lot back then.

And anybody else in the room who realizes you’re kidding has to keep a straight face too, for as long as they can. Whoever thinks you are being serious will be looking for any sign, any tell, that you’re kidding.

The person(s) who originally thought you were being serious, can’t really let it go, because if they try to, a few minutes later I just up the ante by circling back to the subject and saying something even more absurd, until somebody cracks, and then everybody starts laughing 😁

I guess it’s sort of like gaslighting, but we didn’t know that term back then, and we weren’t doing it to harm anybody, we just did it for laughs.

The whole point is to let the person (or people) who thought you were being serious in on the joke, eventually, because that’s when everybody else can stop playing along, stop trying to play it straight, and start laughing too.

It was the randomness of it that helped make it work. You might go 5 or 6 hours, like watching both football games on Sunday afternoon, and everything is normal, everybody is relaxed, having a good time, and then somebody happens to say something that you can work with, and here we go, it’s on!

Or somebody else would do it, and then I was in the position of trying to figure out if they were being serious or not.

You could never be sure, so you always had to be on guard.

We laughed a lot back then, just messing around with our friends.

You guys are my friends, so I was just having a little fun, seeing if anyone was paying attention, trying for a laugh… it made me laugh, that’s for sure.

I mean, look at that video clip again.

Now try to imagine two guys, in one big spider suit, trying to make that work…



We had a similar thing that we called ‘the elevator game’. Simply put, if two of us got on an elevator with a complete stranger, we’d improvise an ongoing conversation — with the intent of freaking the stranger out.

The idea was that we’d have to keep it going so long as we were riding the elevator with the stranger (or anyone who got on the elevator while we were playing).

So, *ding* the door opens, we get in.

A: “….and then what happened?”

B: “Well, after the girl got off of the donkey, she headed straight for the punchbowl. Instead of getting some punch, however, she grabbed some of the fruit garnish and took it back and fed it to the donkey.”

A: “Was that when Jennifer threw the punch at her?”




We did that too!

I haven’t thought about that in years 😂🤣😂

I don’t think I ever tried it in an elevator, but just about anywhere would work.

Library, standing in line at the grocery store, etc. 😁

Hubby once saw a (regular size) tarantula migration when on a boy scout trip in OK…shudder…They covered the ground…


I saw a tarantula migration going across the road up in Haines Canyon in Tujunga. We watched it for a while, but couldn’t figure out a way of crossing it on a horse or motorcycle without squishing a bunch, so we eventually just turned around and went back down.


The Fiancee and I saw the same thing, except with crabs, on Roatan. We thought we’d capture it the next day with cameras…..but it was one day only.


Make a little ramp, put the horse on the back of the motorcycle, and jump it 👍


Our reason to go up the canyon wasn’t as compelling to us as the spiders’ reason to cross the road.

Otherwise, we might have put the motorcycle on the back of the horse and jumped it without a ramp.

Valerie Curren

You’re a tenderhearted soul. 🙂


When you see a large group like that, they seem so single-minded and serious.

At other times, they’ll interact with people and can be kept as pets.


One of my favorite tarantula anecdotes involves a jewelry store that had a bunch of smash-and-grab robberies from their front windows. They simply employed a tarantula to live in the display to act as their security guard.

This would have had zero effect on someone who considered a tarantula as a potential pet, but I guess that people with exotic pets are not predisposed to property crimes.


That is brilliant.

That store deserves a discount on its theft insurance premium.



Valerie Curren

We had a couple opportunities to hold tarantulas & huge centipedes over the years & I reluctantly did so. I really do Not like bugs!


Back when the topic was Mercury, there was a brief mention of the Paul French novel, Lucky Starr and the Big Sun of Mercury.

Turns out there was a corresponding novel about Venus — sort of a “sci-fi B-level movies novel of the era”. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucky_Starr_and_the_Oceans_of_Venus


“I hadn’t realized that into the 1950s people had thought there was life there or that we could live there.”


People back then relied on the opinions of experts.

Maryland sued over voter roll registration inaccuracies.
“Meticulous analysis of the official Maryland State Voter Registration Database reveals a minimum of 79,392 current apparent registration violations…The analysis revealed 1,699 instances of duplicate registrations, 25,084 instances of registrants with questionable inactive status, 3,366 instances of active registrations without a certified US Post Office mailing address, 5,680 instances of active registrants who moved at least 4 years ago, 605 instances of registrations with no residential address, 296 instances of active registrants with a nonstandard address, 1,218 instances of active registrants who are deceased, 883 instances of age discrepant registration (younger than 18 or older than 115), and 40,518 instances of questionable registration date.”



Those stats are background noise, compared to the more notorious states.

I used to live in the D.C. area. Maryland is as blue as it gets. Therefore, it doesn’t need to cheat to win. 1218 dead voters is like peeing in the swimming pool.

Judge in Trump’s Classified Documents Case Sets Date to Hear Motions to Dismiss
By Zachary Stieber
8 Mar 2024
The hearing on President Trump’s motions to dismiss the case against him will be held at 10 a.m. on March 14 in Fort Pierce, Florida, U.S. District Judge Aileen Cannon said.


The funeral bells are tolling …


From CFP and TT’s post of IVM related links: I have edited mine to just include the following, which is related.

Last Saturday I was exposed to a couple with the latest COVID variant (they were unaware until the next day) across the street as I helped him purchase, load and install a new TV purchased at Walmart into their home. I was exposed for half a day. His wife even gave us a chocolate pie she prepared in appreciation for us to have at our family lunch Sunday after church. His wife had been ill with what she thought were bad allergies for a week. He called me apologetically on Sunday evening to say they had both had tested positive for COVID at a clinic and were very sick.

I immediately took an additional dose of IVM and my vitamins. My wife had been sick with what turned out to be a sinus infection for about a week. As a precaution we took her to the doc on Tuesday. She does not take IVM, just regular vitamins as discussed. After exposure we wanted to make sure she did not have COVID or flu. She tested negative and was prescribed 875 mg of Augmentin. She has responded well to it.

Due to my personal protocol and God’s grace I have not been ill with a respiratory issue such as described for nearly two years although I have been regularly exposed to all of it with family, friends, church, public outings, etc.

As someone who has fought the Bifidobacteria fight with probiotics for years, it was interesting to find I did not need them anymore with the prophylactic use of IVM, listed vitamins including C, as well as the multi-protein collagen type I use for gut health. In fact, if I used the probiotics regularly my gut health deteriorated from excessive Bifidobacteria in my system. Quite simply they made me feel worse and become irregular.

Now I know why.

At least for me and apparently over a billion other people, IVM for the win…again.

Last edited 4 months ago by TradeBait2

Part of the problem with taking a probiotic supplement is that everyone has different gut flora. Different probiotics contain different ones, and if you take a supplement that doesn’t sort of “match” your gut, the introduced flora “fight” the ones your body naturally prefers.

This kills both the introduced and natural bacteria, making you feel worse.

If vitamin I protects your gut, then your body’s preferred bacteria can thrive. Adding fermented food to the diet gives your system the chance to incorporate what it likes, and eliminate the rest.

God’s system for our immunity is beautiful.


It took awhile to get there, gal, but Goober is finally figuring things out. As always thanks for your input.




Thank you for the update. IVM does the job again!
I agree with Aubergine — the wrong type of probiotics in supplements can produce a negative effect in the gut flora. And that taking fermented foods give the body a chance to keep and use “natural” probiotics. This can be as simple as eating yogurt as part of breakfast.

Yours Truly hopes that the people across the street who are sick with COVID-19 get better soon. One is assuming that they are “vaccinated” and/or “boosted.”

Here’s the truth, IMO:
Anyone who ever took a COVID-19 “vaccine” injection is at risk for getting COVID-19, and this risk remains for an as-yet undetermined amount of time. The COVID-19 “vaccines” were designed to damage/destroy the natural immune system of the “vaccinated” person. At the same time, the mechanism of these “vaccines” create an almost-continuous “fake COVID-19 infection” in the “vaccinated” person, forcing the body to keep making large amounts of immune system cells to fight this off.
The resulting “one-two whammy” of the “vaccines” make the “vaccinated” person vulnerable to all sorts of infections and diseases in addition to coming down with COVID-19.
At the same time, “vaccinated” persons can “shed” elements of the “vaccines” in their bodies onto other people, whether these other people are “vaccinated” themselves—or not “vaccinated” at all.
It’s now, IMO, extremely important that all people, especially “un-vaccinated” people, to put and keep their natural immune system in the best shape possible.


Glad you brought the jabs up for the couple, PAVACA. It is a story worth telling.

The wife is a sales rep in the air filtration field for commercial and industrial applications. Along with other places she visits a lot of hospitals, clinics, physician offices, etc. in a 4 state territory. Most all of the hospitals still require any outside contract vendors to show proof of vaccination before entry. So she feels trapped as her employer would let her go if she could not service her accounts. Her husband has been disabled from an industrial accident going back over 25 years ago. He regularly has surgeries, at least a dozen or more through the years from effects of a fall on his spine and hips. He cannot hold a job and receives a reasonable permanent settlement and lifelong annual disability payment. However, it is not near enough for them to live on. She is in her late 50’s and would never find a job that paid her as well with the necessary medical insurance and 401k.

As a result she gets the jabs despite not wanting to do so. It has cost her at least three COVID infections and a few months of Bells Palsy. Her husband was prohibited from getting them due to his medications and severely compromised immune system. So he has caught COVID a few times from her shedding as he rarely leaves the home in the cooler winter months. She obviously brings it home to him from her work. He has refused to consider her changing jobs despite her willingness because of the money she makes and future retirement income.

We pray for them and hope for the best. Despite it all they will do anything to help anybody who needs it in our neighborhood. Very good neighbors.

I sure hope she is taking Ivermectin and  Spike Support 

Get back to that pre-COVID feeling.

The revolutionary Spike Support formula contains ingredients researched for their ability to combat spike protein in-vitro. Keep your body at peak condition after an infection and guard against shedding.

This is the ingredients label. They use Green Tea extract instead of Ivermectin.

i was telling my old neighbor about ivermectin and she asked me a question i don’t have an answer to…perhaps someone here does.
she went to a website that sells it and in order to purchase it, she had to click a box that says she does not take these certain medicines. she is on a blood thinner–pacemaker–but it was not the one listed. i think she said coumadin (sp?) was there but she takes xarelto. could she answer the question that no, she doesn’t take those drugs.
are all blood thinner patients unable to take ivermectin?
she has been super lucky so far and has not gotten cv but she wants to be prepared.


Slow Guy has ZERO medical knowledge or training.

Always an opinion, even if I copy, paste it.

  :wpds_arrow:  I entered coumadin and xarelto. Got this…

Potential for serious interaction; regular monitoring by your doctor required or alternate medication may be needed.

Rivaroxaban + Warfarin
Rivaroxaban increases effects of Warfarin by the risk of side effects and cause bleeding or bruising.

  :wpds_arrow:  THEN, added Ivermectin. Got this.

Significant interaction possible (monitoring by your doctor required).

Ivermectin + Warfarin
Ivermectin increases effects of Warfarin by unspecified interaction mechanism.

Sad that politics and fear put them in this mess. Pray that all ends well for them!


Based on comments elsewhere today, IVM as a daily or every-other-day supplement would seem to be critical.


FLCCC, for example, recommends IVM used as a prophylactic ONCE a week (or perhaps twice, in a divided dose) — that would mean, for a 120-pound person taking 12mg of IVM per week, this could be done in EITHER one 12mg dose ONCE a week; OR, 2- 6mg doses on TWO different days of the week.

If Yours Truy’s understanding is correct, IVM on a DAILY basis should be used if the person has an ACTIVE infection of COVID-19 — and even then, ONLY in a course of 5 or 6 days of (usually increased) doses of IVM taken ONCE per day; or, the IVM is being used to treat an actual medical disease condition that the drug is “FDA approved” for, such as certain parasitic diseases, or for River Blindness.

Be aware that IVM can cause dizziness. This is especially true if the person taking IVM is ALSO taking another medication that has dizziness as a side effect (for example, an antidepressant.)

Prayer request: When I moved to Virginia to support LEO and DoD after 9/11, I rented a 50s house in Springfield, VA. I was blessed to have Christian next door neighbors, Sue and Pete. Pete had been a Naval Officer and his last position before retirement was as an Ethics Officer for ICE. I lived next door to them for three years, but we have remained friends since I met them in 2005. I could always reach out to Pete for guidance on navigating inside the LEO and DoD world and doing the right thing.

He even taught me about “slug lines” where people would wait in a line in the suburbs to catch a ride with someone else commuting to work in DC. If someone could take a rider, they would pick up the next person in line. How risky slug lines must be nowadays.

Their daughter, Lora, followed in her Dad’s footsteps and became a Navy swimmer and helicopter pilot. Later, she married a Navy SEAL. They have three children and have always been so kind, humble, and encouraging.

This has been a hard winter for their family and as we approach spring, Lora is starting colorectal cancer treatments at the Mayo Clinic. I know my friend Sue wants to be with her daughter, but she also needs to stay with her hubby to help him through his own medical challenges.

Like many here, Pete and Sue have always done their research on medical and political issues they and their family face. One of Lora and her hubby JD’s Naval Academy friends set up a GoFundMe for them and they have already exceeded their goal. God’s blessings in the midst of extreme challenges.


Thank you for any prayers (or positive waves) for Lora and her family. They are patriots who have sacrificed and I love them all dearly.

Thank you, Pat!

I’m sorry to hear of this news about your friends. Sending Good Energy and Deep Healing, for sure.
Does Lora know about Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT)? It’s another type of radiation therapy. Sometimes it’s called Body Radiosurgery. I believe it’s available at the Mayo Clinic.

Barb Meier

Thank you, Pavaca! I will ask Sue to see if they know about it.



Barb Meier

Thank you, TT!


Get them to switch to GiveSendGo. Far more honorable org.

GoFundMe refused to forward the funds for the Canadian truckers protest.

Barb Meier

I know, Pgroup. I don’t have the heart to ask them to change. I agree though and hope it goes well there.


Absolutely – 🙏

TYRANNY: Trudeau’s Canada Will Imprison Anyone It Think ‘Might’ Commit a Hate Crime, Could Punish Them With Life Sentences

The country’s Justice Minister, Arif Virani, declared the legislation could play a “very important” role in preventing criticism of minorities.


Thought crime?


Only if one opposes the Trudeau regime. The new digital cops is a nice touch. Biden be needing one of these laws😮.

I suppose this is where the Fabian/Progressive/Socialist philosophy leads. When we are considered nothing more than articulate animals capable of great harm there is no limit to how far a controlling elite may go in their pursuit of compassionate politics. They obviously have a much firmer control over the zeitgeist than I was willing to admit. A bell around the neck or an electronic bracelet around the ankle seems reasonable if protecting the vulnerable minority is your stated goal. The coincident virtue that it allows greater control over the herd is a feature not a bug.

It is always the same games played, they accuse US of exactly what they are doing.
Complaint: Whitehouse Was Committing The Ethics Violations He Projected Onto Supreme Court Justices
While leading Democrats’ smears against constitutionalist Supreme Court justices, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse was engaging in actual corruption, says the complaint.
Whitehouse is Democrats’ lead man in their effort to destroy the credibility of the Supreme Court with sham ethics grievances and dark money allegations. He only became interested in scrutinizing the court’s “ethics” code when it became politically and personally profitable to target the conservative-controlled court.
Just two years after taking office, Whitehouse penned a letter for the U.S. Department of
Transportation to approve a $22 million grant for a company that planned to lease offshore land in Providence, Rhode Island to Deepwater Wind. Three weeks later, Deepwater Wind hired Whitehouse’s wife as a consultant.



That’s how he learned how it’s done.

He should change his name to be more accurate: from Whitehouse to Whorehouse…

Glitch McConnell’s Billionaire Sister-in-Law Angela Chao Made Panicked Last Call Before Dying in ‘Completely Submerged’ Tesla on Texas Ranch

comment image

Gosh… after reading that it seems like the rescuers were waiting the prescribed amount of time it might take her to die… “due to rugged terrain some of the rescuers walked to the scene.” “stood around on the top of the car trying to break a window”, “afraid a cable attached to a Tesla might cause electrocution” 🙄

I wonder if the call made was recorded? If recorded if they support the cover story about events leading up to the alleged accident? 🤔

Brave and Free

Shedding light on why the Turtle is retiring.


It’s Coryn Country out there. Mitch is getting feeble minded. Apply some pressure and tell him the walls are closing in, “you can’t even get the Ukraine bill passed and now the Chiniee man or heavens the Slo Joe faction is angry, sai pointing to dead SIL. Time to step down Mitch old boy” said before he ambitiously and gleefully goes running up the steps on Capitol Hill to toss his hat in the ring for Mitch’s job.

Offing Mitch not possible. Huge investigation, so that is NO. SIL not so much. Invite to the weekend getaway. Stack event with a few friends. One with a device to override the car controls. Have the car aggressively crash through the wall and drive down to an into the middle of pond. Have the right responders who are able to follow a key stone cop script and then get the car to flood.

Fairly sure Angela was not a race car driver, and knew how to unlock the doors. Once the car has 70% water inside the doors or windows should of been openable as all the circuits are water proofed, just like any other car with power locks and power windows.

The best pick “Brasso” doesn’t want the job… scared? Trump doesn’t like the other Johns as they are Mitch suck ups. Picks Daines who is only slightly better, because they are again not giving him much choice.

Cuppa Covfefe

Seems Tesla has problems with the doors and windows when the power goes out (at least in wrecks and fires). If the car/aux-battery compartment were submerged, there’d be no power to operate the windows or the door, although opening a door in a submerged vehicle is nigh on impossible…

Cuppa Covfefe

Yep. They toyed with making those hammers mandatory over here, but never enacted it (would have been one of the few sensible things that the EU has done). I don’t think that they’re that expensive, and would make a good addition to the required first-aid kit… provided it’s not in the trunk… (Murphy’s law, as usual)…

Her friends immediately ran to help and one woman jumped in the pond, the Journal reported. The property’s 👉ranch manager and his wife came outside after hearing the commotion and somebody called 911.

As I said before Ranches and farms HAVE TRACTORS and they also HAVE CHAINS!

We have five heavy chains in 10 ft or more lengths. That does not include the rope we also have and length of webbing USED TO TIE DOWN HAY on trailers.

So do not tell me that RANCH MANAGER could not scrounge up chain or webbing or rope and a tractor on a ~400 ac farm!

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. Is that an old caving rope? That would be PERFECT to tow out a car. And that sucker would have REACH, too. Aren’t those like 50 meters or more?

Don’t have to pull the car back on the road – just get it to the shallows or tip it up enough that part of the passenger compartment goes above waterline. And even the heavy Tesla will be more buoyant in the water.

Gail Combs

I have 350 ft of caving rope. And that does not include an entire foot locker full of random lengths of heavy rope.

On a farm you are ALWAYS tying stuff down in the back of the pick-up or on a trailer. Heck there is also LUNGE LINES (25 -30 ft in length) lead ropes (10 ft) cross tie ropes….

So do not tell me that ranch manager did not have the ability to get that car out!

Around here we have pulled out stuck cars, tractors, moved trees lying across the road… That last sucker had a 4-5 ft high trunk and had our dually tires spinning. So the farmer across the street used his tractor to move it.

Appropriations Bills – comes more than five months into the fiscal year, is jammed full of earmarks and the left’s political priorities. Fails to move towards reducing national debt. This is not fiscal conservatism. Who in their right minds will be voting on yet another duplicitous bill with hidden earmarks?
Hopefully more people will do more than gripe, to hold their local politicians’ feet to the fire!
Hidden within the appropriations bills are:
   $3.5 million for Michigan’s Thanksgiving Parade;
   $1 million for an environmental justice center in New York City;
   $1 million for gardens in San Francisco;
   $4 million for a waterfront walkway in New Jersey;
   $1 million for an electric vehicle car share for public housing residents in Los
   $4.1 million for a Fire Station in Quincy, MA – (a town of 100,000 with a
median income of over $90,000); and
   $4 million for the Wright Factory Business Park attempting to turn the plane
factory site into a “green space.”


An annoying document, isn’t it?

FTA “But in a recent interview, Matthews identified the person who delayed the Guard’s deployment, someone who had no authority to do so – Milley. Although the National Guard falls directly under presidential control, Milley circumvented his role. Matthews shared that Milley projected himself outside of his authority. As CJCS, Milley was only to serve in an advisory capacity to the president with no legal authority within the chain of command. However, through his position and exploitation of other generals, he was able to maneuver himself into controlling the Army. Matthews explained:
“The problem was not with Donald Trump; it’s Mark Milley and the Army leadership in control. They stopped the Guard from coming, then lied about it and said the Guard acted at sprint speed. This is about civilian control of the military. There was none. There is none. I argue that – Mark Milley had more control over the D.C. Guard on Jan. 6 than Donald Trump did – if Donald Trump wanted to call the Guard to go to the Capitol, Milley wouldn’t let him do it.” Among those supporting Matthews’ account are several District of Columbia law enforcement officials, including former Capitol Police Chief Steven A. Sund. He reported that the Pentagon seemed more concerned about the “optics” of military personnel engaged in crowd control as opposed to quickly deploying the Guard. He noted,”I got on a call with the Pentagon and pleaded for the National Guard. There was delay after delay after delay.””
So on the run up to J6 Milley took his orders from Pelsoi and the deep state and not the Commander In Chief!!!! No surprise he also disobeyed President Trump when told to bring troops home! So a military General was in on the 2020 coup d’etat!!! Too bad Milley will never be court marshaled because he should be!!!! Nothing will of this unfortunately!!!


And why, exactly, will he never be court-martialed?

If Trump wins in 24, I think he will be ALONG WITH A WHOLE BUNCH MORE!

Verse of the Day for Saturday, March 9, 2024

“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.” 

Psalms 37:4 (KJV)

Thank You, Jesus, for blessings received and prayers answered !!!



Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

I do not think Youngkin is a hero, but I am certainly glad to see he is standing up to the fraudulent Democrats.
“Hero Governor Glenn Youngkin VETOES Democrat Bill that Would Force Virginia to Re-Enter ERIC Voter Roll Management System – Democrats in a Panic! Why Is That?”
The series of reports focused on ERIC’s lack of transparency, lack of reforms, and bias. We also pointed out how ERIC was created to clean the voter rolls but this never happened. The voters rolls were never cleaned up in the ERIC states. A good example of this is Wisconsin – a state that uses the ERIC system yet has 7.06 million registered voters in a state with 3.6 million eligible voters!
Obviously, the ERIC system is not working.
It was later discovered that ERIC founder David Becker was sharing ERIC content in 2020 with leftist groups during the presidential election.
Democrats are no doubt in a panic over this move by Youngkin
It is crystal clear why Democrats want back in ERIC.
And it’s not because of voter integrity!
