On this day and every day –

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


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

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


Green Pastures & Still Waters

Psalm 23 offers comfort with its soothing words and assurance in the Shepherd. Its poetic allure attracts even unbelievers, while its pastoral imagery draws from David’s own shepherding background, aiming to evoke a sense of tranquility. Throughout Psalm 23, the timeless truth about God and His relationship with His people unfolds. An example is the second verse, “He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters.”

To delve into David’s imagery in Psalm 23:2, consider how shepherds took care of their sheep in biblical times. Rather than “drive” them with a stick from behind as is commonly imagined, shepherds guided the sheep, going before them to suitable pasture. Without a shepherd, sheep would either starve or become prey. Similarly, the shepherd directed the sheep to water sources. By invoking this analogy, David expresses his complete reliance on God to fulfill all his needs, conveying deep adoration for God as the Ultimate Provider.

It’s interesting that Jesus refers to Himself as the Good Shepherd multiple times in the Gospels, paralleling the Psalms (John 10:11, 14–15; Matthew 18:12–14; Luke 15:3–7). No doubt, His listeners were familiar enough with the Old Testament to pick up on the reference. That might explain why some thought of Him as insane (John 10:19–20). Nevertheless, the resonant truth remains that Jesus is God—the Good Shepherd whom we faithfully follow.

As the Good Shepherd, Christ initially tended to our spiritual needs by “sacrificing his life for the sheep” (John 10:14). Isaiah employs similar imagery, proclaiming, “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:6). Christians lie in the green pasture of God’s grace and beside the still water of salvation, recognizing that these blessings stem from a Good Shepherd’s guidance.

Beyond spiritual needs, the Good Shepherd also attends to our other requirements. This raises an obvious objection: why do certain Christians still lack? David’s confidence in God’s provision doesn’t negate other passages highlighting the persistence of poverty in this fallen world until God renews His creation (Matthew 26:11; Mark 14:7; John 12:8). Various factors can lead to poverty, and God’s commitment to meet our needs does not necessarily entail a life of constant abundance or freedom from challenges, at least not in this world. Numerous psalms mirror the angst of the psalmist, who felt that God had abandoned him in critical moments, and it is human that we react likewise. However, God’s power shines through both in times of plenty and scarcity.

As the psalmist did, we can confidently declare that God makes us lie down in green pastures, secure, satisfied, and unafraid. Christ, our Good Shepherd, provides for our needs in profound ways.

I love the Gila Monster shaking his fist at the AZ swamp.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I don’t think that’s a Gila monster, because of the ears/horns on the head.

By the way the recent fatality was the first one since the 1930s. Their bite isn’t generally fatal; generally people who die from them are either drunk or mismanage the injury.

pgroup2

Knowing our resident lizard guy would weigh in, I debated whether to name it or just go with generic lizard.

I decided that the focus was Arizona so Gila Monster was it.

Take that, mister technically precise.  😂  😆  😍 

TheseTruths

Good catch on the lizard! I hadn’t noticed it.

I think he will either win in the courts or post the bond. He has the money, I’m sure of it.

Trump is luring them into a trap. Think how hilarious it would be if he “played broke” and then just put up the money.

pgroup2

Not a good idea. False statements to the court are destroying Big Fani and there’s no reason to believe they aren’t trying to bait DJT into a similar tarpit here in NYC.

Aubergine

I don’t think he’s said anything false. I think he has quietly raised the money from private sources.

In the beginning, I don’t think he had the cash on hand.

Last edited 27 days ago by Aubergine
pgroup2

But his attorneys are telling the court that it’s impossible to get a bond. If he has the cash, there’s no need for a bond.

Aubergine

So?

They didn’t say he didn’t have the cash, they said they couldn’t get a bond, which is true.

pgroup2

It’s called misleading the court. Making it look like he’s stuck so they can get extraordinary relief from the court. It violates the attorney’s ethical obligations.

Trust me on this one.

Aubergine

I don’t distrust you. I just think that he has raised the money.

The court can’t expect him not to try to get the money. If he tried and succeeded, how can they be mad about that? He couldn’t possibly know whether he could raise the full amount until he did.

pgroup2

Nobody gets a bond which costs a premium if they have the cash. Why would you pay $110 for a $100 bond if you have the $100? It makes no sense.

So by seeking a bond, he is stating that he doesn’t have the money – otherwise he would post it to the court registry (court trust account).

If he has the money but tries to get a bond, that creates a misleading situation which is unethical.

In Trump’s case, it’s also very dangerous.

p.s. trust me means that I know the facts, not that we have a moral problem in our relationship  🙂 

Aubergine

Lol, I get what you are saying. But what I am saying is, he DID NOT have the money when he sought the bond. But he made phone calls, and RAISED the money when he couldn’t get a bond.

Maybe he didn’t really do that, but he could have.

You can apparently open a brokerage account with a brokerage firm, and buy stocks yourself:

If you’re like me it’s hard to buy stock (or anything) w/out excess funds available. I have Very Small Amounts because my dad gifted my sibs & I a couple shares many years ago & occasionally it splits & a couple times it also generated stock in some connected company (in my case a Very Small fraction of a share on the books LOL).

You can look at these.

Generally it requires you to open an account by sending them money. You would want to make sure there is no opening or closing fee. There may also be sliding fees (in the mutual fund world those are called 12-1b fees and many funds do not have them. )that are determined by how long you keep your money with them. After a period those fees should disappear so that you never pay them.

Once the money is sent and is in your account you can then use their online tools (compare these too. Some are better than others) to research a stock, research the market, etc and when ready execute a trade by moving money in or out of a stock at a time of your choosing for which there are wise times and not so wise times. That is somewhat what timing the market means. Some online tools will let you execute the trade more efficiently than others.

Watch to determine what fees are involved for making a trade. The sites in the link say they do not charge for trades. Read the fine print. They may have a minimum amount that can be traded or a max amount. If your outside that window it may involve a fee.

Example make a trade, in or out of the stock. Is it free or is there a fee? If so how much? Most of those called the best in free online trading are not charging a fee. They may however charge a maintenance fee which is considered tiny amount of your account. Which is fine if it is indeed a small fraction of the account. But some companies will have a higher maintenance fee than others.

If your borrowing money from them to make a trade you will pay extra and be responsible for the amount borrowed so costs will be higher. You would likely not be doing that.

Determine what is happening to the money they are holding that you haven’t yet used to buy a stock. Example you send them 1000 dollars. Now it sits in your account until you choose something. What is happening to it while it sits? This is how it is similar to a bank account. Does it earn interest or not. If so, how much.

You might have sold a stock and now it goes back to your account and sits. You might let it sit a very long time before you buys something else or take your money back, so you want it to be earning something.

The closer it is to the seven day yield on treasuries the better. The cumulative accounting of the seven day yield will determine the rate they claim your earning for the year. If your money is in an account earning more than the 7 day yield, then they are trying to attract investors in which case I’d be weary.

Best option is that it is earning a competitive interest rate close to what a good mutual market money market fund would pay. Example a bank money market fund might be paying .5 to a full 3% but a mutual fund money market will be paying closer to the 7 day yield on US treasuries so it is paying closer to 5% (now)

Their are tax consequences also. Anything held less than year is charged by the IRS at a higher rate. Lower rate is over a year.

IRS wants to tax your profits. So when you move money in that money is not taxed. What is taxed is the money being moved out if it is more than was moved in, the profit.

So if you open an account with a trading firm no tax till you take it out and you are being taxed for profits as you move money from one stock to another or back into your account.

Also the stock you buy through your account may pay a dividend or a capital gain. Both would be profits and subject to tax and the tax would be determined on how long you held them, over or under a year. Dividends and Capitol gains are paid quarterly, or annually at the discretion of the company you buy stock in. They may not be paid at all and when you take your money out, the stock price you put it in verse the stock price you took it out will determine if you had a profit or not. Over all those are the three ways you earn money, Dividend, Capital Gain, and Price of the Stock when you take it out.

You also want to keep track of losses as you can use those to offset the gains at tax time.

The below links have some primers and you should likely look over whichever trading company you decide to use as far as their particular rules. They should have primers also.

Next comes researching the company you want to invest in.
Buying a stock is putting all your money in one basket. Example what happens to the Trump thing once he walks away from it or if Deep State attacks it with their regulators. Will it even survive and profit. Usually the early bird catches the worm. Come late and you will barely get by and be subject more to the winds of the market.

You could go with a broker and pay his brokerage fee, but this stuff is not hard to understand if you buckle down and do your own research. Also brokerage fees can be cheap or expensive. Normally cheap means they are pushing you to make more trades so they make more money.

By the way I don’t do this. I have a mutual fund with moderate tools that allow me to trade for free if I desire to trade at all. Essentially sending your money to a good money market fund with in one of these mutual funds will give you all the tools you need. Mom and Pops overwhelmingly have been enjoying Vanguard for this and this recent Vanguard kerfuffle is upsetting the Mom and Pops.

I don’t know anything about these trading companies listed but my guess is E trade will be bare bones and easiest to understand, but that might be all of them.

scott467

Hi Pat,

The big online brokers are reputable, there used to be AmeriTrade but they have recently merged with Charles Schwab, and there is Fidelity, and Interactive Brokers. If you do a search for “the best online brokers” there should be plenty of lists with descriptions, pros and cons, etc., but I don’t think you can go wrong with Schwab or Fidelity.

Once you create an account, you can attach a checking account to your broker account, and then fund the broker account either by ACH transfer, or wire transfer, etc.

It’s pretty easy, at least they are certainly motivated to make it easy. If you have any difficulty, just call the 1-800 number. Unlike most businesses these days, it won’t be too hard to get through to a helpful human.

Once you are set up, just go to their stock trading page (should be easy to find, from a drop-down box at the top of the screen or along the side of the screen).

Then type in the ticker symbol for the stock you are interested in. I’m not sure what the ticker symbol for Truth Social is going to be. As far as I know, the stock has not been officially listed yet, so it may not have a ticker symbol quite yet.

There are short youtube videos showing how to place a stock purchase order for most of the big online brokers.

There will be a bid and ask price shown, and it will be constantly changing, up a few cents or down a few cents. Suppose the shares were going for around $10 each, and you wanted to buy 10 shares for $100.

You would select “Limit Order”, enter ’10’ for the number of shares to buy, and enter $10.00 for purchase price, which tells the broker to only place the purchase order at a price of $10.00 or lower. When everything looks right, hit the ‘review’ button, which takes you to a summary page of the order you are about to place.

If everything looks right, click ‘enter’ or ‘purchase’ or whatever term they use, and your order becomes ‘active’ or ‘live’. If the website does not automatically take you to a ‘Status’ page, it should be a link either at the top or along the side of the page.

Go to the ‘Status’ page, and you will see your purchase order, the current price, how close the current price is to your ‘Limit Order’, etc. The ‘Status’ will say ‘Open’ until or unless the order is filled, at which point the ‘Status’ changes to ‘Filled’, and you are the proud new owner of 10 shares of Truth Social 😁

I would expect there to be lots of news when the stock is ready to go public. In most cases, it’s better to wait a week or a few weeks after an initial public offering, because they usually pump up in price on the day of issue, but then slowly drop to below the original issue price in the following week or two, and you can buy at a better price, before the price begins to trend upward again.

But as with all things Trump, it could just go straight to the Moon, if Trump supporters use this as an opportunity to show their support 😁

pat frederick

thanks Scot!
i’m grateful for all the info!

scott467

You’re welcome!

Trump Social to the Moon! 🚀🚀🚀😂

scott467

You don’t have to use a “Limit Order”, that’s just my habit and what I think most people use.

You can also use a “Market Order”, which tells the broker to buy the stock “at the market price”, meaning whatever the price is when you hit the ‘buy’ button.

If a stock is particularly volatile, or if you are buying (or selling) a large number of shares, you can protect yourself from paying too much (or selling too low) by using a “Limit Order”, which basically tells the broker not to buy or sell over your specified amount.

If you are just buying 10 shares of something at around $10 each, it’s not really going to matter one way or the other whether you end up getting the shares for $10.15 each, or $9.90 each, since the overall difference is very small ($101.50 vs $99.00).

Stocks with higher values, like Agnico Eagle (ticker symbol AEM, a top tier gold mining company stock) currently trade around $56 per share. Instead of just going up or down ten or fifteen cents every couple seconds, it may go up or down by a dollar or two every few minutes.

So if you are buying or selling three thousand shares (for example), a one or two dollar change in price per share x 3,000 shares could end up costing you an extra $3,000 to $6,000 dollars.

So if the market is just fluctuating (not going on a tear upwards or downwards), if it’s just going up a dollar or two every few minutes and then back down a dollar or two every few minutes, then a “Limit Order” will make sure you get the price you want.

A ‘Market Order’ is buying at whatever the current market price happens to be.

If you use a “Limit Order” (e.g., suppose you placed a Limit Order for 10 shares at $10 each), and the order doesn’t fill because the price is trending upward, and an hour or so later the price is $10.25, you can leave the order open (GTC = Good Till Canceled) and the order may be filled in the next day or two, or the next week, etc., whenever it hits your Limit Order price.

Or you can change your Limit Order price, increasing your offer up to $10.25 (for example), and resubmit the offer, or just cancel it and start over with a new one.

Again, it’s not a big deal when talking about a small number of shares, if I wanted ten shares of Truth Social, using a ‘Market Order’ to buy at the current market price would be fine.

I’m just in the habit of using Limit Orders since I first started, as a protective measure, so that’s what I normally do.

This is a way to check on old voter registrations and clean up the voter rolls. For example, if someone was registered but moved to another state, and they are still on the rolls in the previous state as well as the new one.

Until now there has never been a way to check for old registrations easily and quickly. True the Vote has the answer: the “Scan Check Protect” website allows voters to check and find out if there are any fraudulent voter registrations in their names anywhere in the United States.

Ugh, shitty website design. Once you pick a state you CANNOT go back (back arrow on the toolbar is grayed out too), and the reload button . So if you want to check on prior states you have to close the tab and start over.

Anyhow CA won’t check without a driver’s license number. So I can’t see if there’s a bogus registration of mine from 35 years ago.

Chuck Callesto:

JUST IN: Court deals crushing blow to Letitia James — Orders NY Attorney General to Withdraw Letter of “IMPOSSIBLE” $464 MILLION Trump Bond..

BIG WIN FOR TRUMP..

Court Orders NY Attorney General to Withdraw Letter Saying $464 Million Trump Bond Not ‘Impossible’

Shortly after New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a letter asking the New York Supreme Court to “not consider“ that the $464 million bond former President Donald Trump needs to post to keep his assets from being seized is a ”practical impossibility,” the court ordered her to remove it.

The letter was attached to a request to file a surreply—a reply to a reply—which generally isn’t done unless the court grants express permission.

In a March 21 letter, the defense argued that, predictably, the letter received widespread media coverage even though it was “improperly filed” and taken down the same day, refiled with only the request and no letter.

“The Court may draw its own conclusions about the propriety of this maneuver. In doing so, the Court is ‘not required to exhibit a naiveté from which ordinary citizens are free,’” the defense wrote, urging the court to deny the attorney general’s request.

In the original letter, Ms. James had asked the court not to accept the testimonies of a Trump attorney and broker who detailed the efforts they’d gone through in trying to obtain a $464 million bond, claiming they were unreliable sources. The defense faulted the state for not providing any “reason to doubt any of their assertions,” however, and only making a blanket statement.

“While attempting to cynically and wrongfully tar the Defendants’ witnesses as ‘unreliable,’ the Attorney General does not actually dispute the truth of a single one of their specific claims,” the defense’s letter reads.

The sworn affidavits submitted revealed that the defense had sought out the large bond since before final judgment was entered—raising the fine from $250 million to more than $350 million during the last days of trial—and that negotiations by four brokers with 30-plus surety companies still resulted in no deal. One of the brokers provided additional context, saying a $100 million bond was considered large and a $464 million bond (which includes the ordered interest) is something few sureties have the ability to issue and would issue only for large publicly traded companies.

The attorney general had argued that these affidavits still didn’t provide enough information on why the defendants had been turned down, suggesting that Trump Organization assets aren’t as valuable as the defense claims.

The defense sought to rebut several such details in the March 21 letter to the court, arguing that the state was wrong in its assertion that the defendants didn’t spend enough time trying to obtain a bond, arguing they had undergone critical negotiations just this past week and that efforts were ongoing even while the defense tried to obtain a stay.

“The Attorney General is inartfully attempting a losing argument of ‘heads I win, tails you lose,’” the letter reads.

How Much Cash?

After these negotiations, the defense found that a $464 million bond would require about $557 million in cash, on top of any operating expenses to continue The Trump Organization, because sureties require about 120 percent as collateral, plus additional premiums.This is at least $200 million more than the original judgment figure, which the defense could have put in an escrow account if the cash were available.

The attorney general had suggested that the defense be required to put up a total of $464 million through several “smaller” bonds of $100 million or $200 million apiece, and the defense argued that this doesn’t resolve the cash issue.

The judgment total is $363 million, with about $355 million of that specifically applying to President Trump, $4 million to be recovered from Eric Trump, $4 million to be recovered from Donald Trump Jr., and $1 million to be recovered from Allen Weisselberg.

With the applied 9 percent interest, court filings say the bond comes out to more than $464 million, with a little more than $10 million of that attributed to judgment on Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr., and Allen Weisselberg.

Fire Sale?

President Trump had posted on social media that to divest of his buildings in a “fire sale” would create irreparable damage—he would lose the buildings he was appealing to keep.“Perhaps worst of all, the Attorney General argues that Defendants should be forced to dispose of iconic, multi-billion-dollar real-estate holdings in a ‘fire sale,’” the defense’s letter reads. They called it ”textbook irreparable injury” to require the defendants to appeal without penalty only after taking such losses.

“It would be completely illogical—and the definition of an unconstitutional Excessive Fine and a Taking—to require Defendants to sell properties at all, and especially in a ‘fire sale,’ in order to be able to appeal the lawless Supreme Court judgment, as that would cause harm that cannot be repaired once the Defendants do win, as is overwhelmingly likely, on appeal,” the defense argued.

They additionally cited several media articles and editorials about the shocking figure the state is demanding from President Trump and Ms. James’s possible political motives.

Story continues below advertisement

The state had also argued that if the defense knew they couldn’t get a $464 million bond, they should have “at a minimum consented to have their real estate interests held by Supreme Court to satisfy the judgment.”

“The suggestion is both impractical and unjust,” the defense argued. “The Attorney General cites no New York case law to support this contention.”

The case indeed puts The Trump Organization in uncharted territory; the appeals court has put a temporary stay on the judgment orders that would prohibit Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. from continuing to run the company, but it may lift the administrative stay after ruling on present motions. The trial court had also ordered monitorship of The Trump Organization to continue and the appointment of an additional risk officer.

Ground report: we had high winds on Wednesday, then fires on Thursday and Friday. Friday was exciting with much going on. Friday night, we got rain into Saturday morning that seems to have put out all the fires.

Here is a photo of where our fires came over the mountain from Page County into Shenandoah County.

I live in the dip near the middle where it is dark. There was a ridge of fire to the north and south.

The smoke was quite thick at times, even indoors. A neighborhood just south of me was evacuated Friday evening. Our electric company turned off power for the evacuated area and I was on the same line so lost my power until Saturday sometime between 7am and 11:30am. The rain was such a blessing. God is good.

My home and all my neighbors’ homes are okay. I stayed in my car with both kitties in crates from 10:30 pm till 2:30 am on Friday night. With no power, I was concerned about getting kitties in their crates if we too were evacuated. Then the rains started and continued until 10am Saturday morning.

Add to this I had a home showing Friday around lunchtime. The client came from the city and did not want to reschedule. I imagine it was quite a surprise since the media did not cover this much. There were also fires in West Virginia. Perhaps seven fires or more.

There are considerable major forest fires around the country right now. I wonder if there are more than usual and if any are arson/intentionally started.

MAP – https://www.fireweatheravalanche.org/fire/

GA/FL

When I backed up to encompass whole USA – it says there are 583 active wildfires currently in USA.

cthulhu

For wildfires to get really bad, they have to involve large amounts of government-controlled land. Note that this is not necessarily government-owned land — the EPA can force private land owners to engage in, or desist from, various behaviors on their land.

Barb Meier

In our area, the National Forestry Service does controlled burns in the National Forest areas. They do know about minimizing the risks by managing the forests.

A controlled burn may have been done before the high winds were forecast. Not sure on the timing or exact location. Our fire started by Dan’s Steakhouse over the mountain and near the highway. I have not read about the cause of our fire yet.

Barb Meier

In the info I had on our fires, they were 1,000 to 2,000 acres but that’s not complete data.

Barb Meier

I wished I had this link earlier and hope it can be found later too… https://data.usatoday.com/fires/

Barb Meier

We always have no-burn warnings this time of year. I only heard that one fire was caused by a vehicle accident and that one was south of here.

mollypitcher5

Wow that was stressful and you’re right it wasn’t widely talked about , for sure I hadn’t heard about it.

Barb Meier

Best of all, my realtor just emailed saying someone has requested a showing of my house this afternoon. Hwy 211 to my house is still closed except to residents in both directions.

I also had a showing Friday while the fires were still burning and smoke from them was visible all along the Massanutten Mountain ridge from miles north of here to south on Hwy 81. The city client was making a long drive, so persisted to come see it on Friday. They probably were going to see other homes too. I don’t know if they got through the police road blockade or not.

I’ve just about got everything put away from the pre-evacuation readiness but need to clean up from fixing something to eat this morning. Got to get the new microwave out of its box and up into the microwave shelf. It’s only 37 lbs, so I can lift it into place after snugging the power plug through a very small opening in the back of the shelf. I can set the microwave on the counter below the shelf while I route the power cord in place.

There are three BIG staples on the top of the new microwave’s box. At first, I thought to use a regular knife to pry those out. After some slow thinking, I realized a flathead screwdriver or needle nose pliers would be a better tool. Got those. I put it off since cleaning the shelf on Friday.

I asked to reschedule the showing and the client has agreed. Yay! Thank goodness! Instead, I had a catch-up nap with the kitties. LOL

Barb Meier

Got the box opened. The best tool was using the claws on my hammer. Worked perfectly!

Amazing photos – I hope these fires are not threatening homes and communities! Prayers and blessings for protection of people in the area and the fire fighters.

Barb Meier

One firefighter at the Bergton fire had a tree limb fall on him. Last I heard, he was in critical condition. I also heard 10 homes were lost and I think that was over the mountain in Page County or north of here in a Strasburg fire. Prayers are so welcome.

The communities in this area stepped right up to help each other and Facebook pages were insrumental in spreading the information we needed more quickly.

State Hwy Patrol and National Forestry were deeply involved but VA did not declare a state of emergency. The MSM silence was unhelpful as usual.

WVA did get help from higher up and did declare a SOE. I heard that VA state does have the air support to drop water over the fires, but not the funding to buy fuel. After the rains, THEN we got word we would get fuel replaced for VA air tankers.

One lady had 26 horses, and locals with trailers were volunteerig to help her evacuate them. People use their real names, not nicknames, when interacting on these pages. We do have some traditional media, but not too much anymore.

Pages like this were crucial to our info sharing:

https://www.facebook.com/shencosheriff

https://www.facebook.com/Rockingham1st

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1006218413912063

https://www.facebook.com/shenandoahcountyecc

I live very close to both Page and Rockingham Counties. Page County starts at the top of our mountain and Rockingham starts just south of New Market city limits. I was checking info in all three places as well as Shenandoah.

They had us sign up for CodeRED Mobile Alert. I think the accounts are separate for mobile and for desktop/laptop though it is a little strange about signups. I was getting minimal info that way. CodeRED would tell us a short message about evacuations but our local LEOs were here and would tell us in person if we needed to evacuate.

They also had a checkpoint at the bottom of the mountain (and still do) so only residents can go up the mountain. There’s a lot of debris on the Page side of the mountain.

The only TV resource I used was WHSV but I did not spend too much time on their stories. They are located in Harrisonburg south of here, and are the JMU college town.

I also used 511virginia.org to check on the road closure notices.

I am sure I could have used the Internet better to gather info for my neighbor and myself and will look into writing some kind of Lessons Learned. X was not a logical go-to place but perhaps I did not know how to use it to best effect (using Trending, and so on).

Barb Meier

Oh yes… when counties put out request for donations, they were overflowing the same day with everything they needed: (water/gatorade, food, $ for fuel, and so on). After that, they pointed us to Red Cross, which I don’t trust so much anymore.

Barb Meier

USAToday had some good info, but I never think to check them. I could have done much better at data gathering but was so focused on the local level.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2024/03/23/wildfires-west-virginia-map-national-guard/73058909007/

If you scroll down and wait a bit, you can see all the fires nationwide or zoom in as I did on Virginia and West Virginia. If you click a Fire instance icon, it expands to give more info about each fire.

I wish I had known about this site so I could more precisely talk about the various fires and their locations. Waterfall was closer to Luray and our fire was listed as 211 West.

We live 30 minutes drive away from the worst of the above. The smoke made it hard to breathe even where we are. It was an inferno in many places in the immediate area of the fires. They do controlled burns in the national park regularly, but the dry conditions and high winds just made it a horrible tragedy. Over the years that followed people rebuilt and the county installed better monitoring and warning systems. The NPS was skewered for how they handled things and have changed as a result.

Hope things are improving there. Be safe.

Barb Meier

Thank you, TradeBait! It is much better today but LEO still has the hwy closed and a roadblock. I see all sorts of emergency vehicles going by 24/7. LEOs are highly involved and so kind to stop and make sure we’re okay. I felt much safer Friday night being in the Rogue with kitties with me in crates so we could move out if needed. Not having lights on made it more spooky. Dominon Power is my electric and they sent notices to my phone before doing things like turning off the power. I didn’t know it was them checcking their lines near my house in the forest. Thinking it might be fire crews was what spooked me. The fires were at about 2200 ft and I live at about 1400 ft. I know embers can float miles and drop to start new fires. It was quite the adventure.

Trump can just fire him on day one.

If there is some carve-out protection clause for these appointees, then shut down funding for the whole board, and create a new one, with your appointees.

If that’s not feasible, then give the current board make-work, and use them for nothing, and block everything they do.

POTUS is the boss, POTUS is in charge, and to the extent that the criminals have created protections for themselves, DJT can certainly find ways around those protections 👍

Asking for urgent prayers for our former pastor that I posted about previously. He went back into the hospital two days ago as he felt another heart attack coming on after his triple bypass earlier in the month. They did emergency surgery yesterday afternoon. One of the bypass grafts failed, so they need to go to the blocked vessel, clean it out and add two stents. They then found another blood vessel they missed the first time that needed bypassed, so he should have been operated for a quadruple bypass in the first operation. While doing that one they punctured an artery. He is in CCU and will be for awhile if he survives. Obviously, the cardiac surgery team blew it.

We never know when and where it will be our turn. Please be prepared and make peace with the Lord if you have not yet done so.

This pastor is one of the finest human beings on the planet. Selfless, loving and devoted to the Lord. However, he allowed his attention to proper nutrition and exercise to lapse over the years. Then he had a lapse in judgment with the jabs, trusting the “medical professionals” that are participants in a system of worldwide genocide. He ignored my and probably, other warnings from people he should have trusted in his own congregation over accepting the recommendations of those who did not have the necessary wisdom and discernment. Who you listen to and trust is often times much more important than what you pay attention to and believe. We all make mistakes. His life has been forever changed for his. My hope is that somebody who reads this may learn from it and make better choices.

pat frederick

I will keep the pastor in my prayers!
my father had quadruple bypasses in his life–twice! he outlived the first set–they lasted 16 years. after his second set was nearing the “replacement” date (another 16 years), the doctors told him he could definitely survive another operation if he wanted…but he declined, deciding he had had enough surgeries and hospitals.
and my father has been gone for 10 years now.
I wonder about the quality of medical personnel these days.

I will pray for your pastor. Poor man. I hope, like you, that his suffering will lead others to make better choices for themselves.

With that, I will also say that it has long been my belief that one of the most important things we can do for our loved ones is take good care of ourselves. We can only be there for them if we are as healthy as possible. Sometimes it may feel selfish to take that time, but we really should. It is honoring the temple God gave us.

Completely agreed that taking care of oneself is very important. IMO, that includes body, mind, and spirit.

Aubergine

I agree 100%!

TradeBait2

Thank you. The very thing you said “take good care of ourselves” was my response to this same pastor the day I told him we were leaving the church to be members of another local church. He told me I looked to be in good health. I told him I was trying to maintain good health so I could take care of my family and friends so as not to create a strain on others. I actually said to him we all need to take good care of ourselves, that it was important.

FWIW, he was appreciative I told him in person and did not ghost him or the church. He was also pleased we would be joining the church of a senior pastor he mentored as a young man. A good man who took bad counsel and it cost him.

This is as far as I’m going to go with this: your pastor/friend lost track of the First Commandment, and all its applications/nuances.

My our Father bless him in his time of testing in troubled waters.

Aubergine

I hope he will recover.

TradeBait2

Will keep folks informed. If he does he will be restricted the rest of his life. They simply could not get enough done and there is a family history of cardiac issues. His father died of a heart attack when he was 9. His paternal grandfather died of a heart attack. His sister just died of congestive heart failure in her early 60’s. Knowing that history he still did not keep his weight down reasonably as well as do moderate exercise. Add in jabs and away we go…

It is sad that our adversary waits until the weakest instance to pounce. He always has identified each person’s weak point so he knows where and how to strike.

This is why it is best for each of us to identify that one area where we are weakest in our walk with Yeshua.

The enemy is not going to come at us in an area where we are strong. The stronger we are, the more likely it is that we will minimize the weakness of that weak spot.

We must each look out for the others, if we can.  😍

UPDATE

Thank you for the prayers, folks. The pastor will be in CCU for a couple of days and may get to return home. A friend of his is a retired RN and will be taking care of him in the parsonage. I take it from the news I received this morning that he will not be “good as new” even when he fully recovers. The graft that failed was on one of the primary vessels and could not be repaired. The stents actually went into the newly discovered blocked artery. There was blood loss in the chest cavity when they unintentionally cut the unrelated artery, so that will need drained and healing. This is going to be a long, painful journey.

Prayers for healing and peace are appreciated greatly.

We often wonder who are the people in the background that are running this sh*tshow that we call a country and I believe I’ve identified one of them.
Jay Sures (born 1966) is an American entertainment industry executive and talent agent currently serving as vice chairman of United Talent Agency.
Sures’ career with United Talent Agency (UTA) began with the establishment of the agency in 1991, where he worked in the mailroom and assisted co-founder Peter Benedek. He became a talent agent when UTA first formed.
Beginning in 2016, Sures has hosted an annual party in Washington, D.C., the night before the White House Correspondents Dinner that blends the worlds of politics, entertainment and media.
Sures is a political activist and a longtime supporter of the Democratic Party. In 2016, he hosted a fundraiser for Senator Tim Kaine, then Hillary Clintons’ selection for vice president in the U.S. presidential election. Earlier in the race, he had supported Joe Biden. He pledged his support for Democratic candidate Gavin Newsome in California’s 2018 gubernatorial race.

Sures joined the Entertainment Industry Foundations board of directors in 2008. Sures was appointed to the Regents of the University of California in January 2019 by former Governor Jerry Brown. He was reappointed for a 12-year term by Governor Gavin Newsom in 2020.
In September 2023, Sures was named chairman of the board of Triad National Security, which manages the Los Alamos National Laboratory. He also serves as Chairman of the board of governors that oversees the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
How in hell do we end up with a Hollywood talent agent overseeing the facilities that develop and test our nuclear weapons inventory?

Thanks for posting but I admit I did not believe you. I thought it must be some kind of confusion; two persons with the same name. So I did my own research, and yes, you were right. Celebrity agent Jay Sures (married to wellness expert Linda Nyvltova) is the Chairman of the board of governors overseeing the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Sorry, for doubting you, but I still live in the hope that somewhere the world is run with some modicum of intelligence. Guess I will have to look elsewhere.

Nancy Pelosi’s son has dodged the hammer of justice for a seventh time, after being excluded from a case in which two fraudsters linked to Paul Jr. are set to be sentenced in a money laundering and mail fraud scheme involving “shady dealings over a San Francisco flop house that Pelosi Jr. claimed to own,” the Daily Mail reports.
Bill Garlock and Gina Rodriguez scammed investors into fronting over $1 million for supposed real estate ventures, and instead used the cash to pay for their lifestyle – including rent, loan repayments, credit card bills, and ‘horse-related expenses,’ according to San Francisco federal prosecutors.

Collusion coverup: Department of Justice intervenes in Pfizer fraud case, in a corrupt attempt to shut the case down
03/22/2024 // Lance D Johnson 
https://www.naturalnews.com/2024-03-22-department-of-justice-intervenes-pfizer-fraud-case.html
– The United States Department of Justice (DOJ) is attempting to shut down the Pfizer fraud case scheduled for April 17.
– The lawsuit alleges that Pfizer-BioNTech violated the False Claims Act during their clinical trials and knowingly delivered a defective product to the world.
– Former employee Brook Jackson, who worked at Ventavia Research Group (a company that conducted some of Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine clinical trials), is suing Pfizer, her former employer Ventavia, and another Pfizer contractor, ICON plc.
– The DOJ asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit, claiming it would be inconsistent with their public health policy.
– The DOJ’s motion to dismiss cites a flimsy hypothesis authored by the FDA, which supports the faulty vaccines and contradicts Jackson’s claims of fraud and negligence.

I was speaking at the VSRF Litigation Conference in Las Vegas on March 8th. I caught up with Brook Jackson at the conference, and she has informed me that she and her attorneys have received email communication from the Department of Justice stating that they are planning to intervene in her case (again) and move to dismiss it. 
This comes after, finally, the oral arguments were scheduled for April 17th, meaning the US Government is desperate to squash the case before discovery can be made possible! They cannot afford the discovery, and thus will try to get rid of the case. The DOJ has to provide the rationale for the dismissal, and it remains to be seen what that will be.
At the conference, Brook’s attorney Robert Barnes gave a short talk about this situation.

Sorry you got me a little confused. My take on it is that ukraine had employed terrorists from Tajikistan so that ukraine could blame it on ISIS.

We don’t know that your version isn’t the correct one. Frankly, Nuland’s resignation affects this and strongly indicates to me that she planted this “bomb” in Ukraine and then left Dodge.

Possibly. Or someone else made it look that way.

Things are usually planned with two levels of fall-back – like the COVID release being backstopped by (first) bat soup and then (second) accidental lab leak.

I’m thinking the two levels here are ISIS (1) and Ukraine (2). Part of the thinking is that Russia will choose to stop at Ukraine, rather than implicating “whoever”. Conspiracies can control pawns on both sides by getting them to pick a damning falsehood for their own benefit.

Ultimately the plot gets tied all the way back to Congress and the American Tax payer. Congress needs to be held accountable. Those million rubies half now half later came us.

If it had been here there would’ve been several hundred bullet holes in the car and the terrorists. It had to take some restraint to capture them alive ensuring getting the step by step of their recruitment.

I love this article!

“Sinning — everyone does it. That is why God sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to atone for our sins and provide a way that we can repent and become free of our sins. So why do some people find it so hard to accept their choices are sins? There are lies now accepted as truth, all designed to prevent people from repenting. While I knew this was the case, I didn’t realize how much it permeated the culture until I read an advice column about dealing with people who sin in a specific way. The first paragraph is as follows, (I’ve edited it, because when you fill in the type of sin, people suddenly lose all objectivity and treat the sins differently… as if one sin was preferable or better than another.)

“A person’s ___ isn’t a “lifestyle choice.” ____ people don’t choose to be ___; they are born that way. They can’t change being ____ any more than you can change being ____.”
You could fill in the blanks with all types of sins (gambling, alcoholism, drug addiction, theft, sexual deviancy, violence, etc…) and the basic premise remains the same. There is a lot to unpack, so I’m going to dissect this.”

Apparently , per UK Daily Mail ,our favorite Fani was at a “community event” yesterday and came out all fired up and saying she is now ready to really go after and get that arch criminal ,PDJT .. the money quote “ I have done nothing wrong” …. Wow Nellie rewind the tape on that – Little perjury , filing false documents etc …TBD perhaps ?
Anyway, best comment from a reader ( all credit.given ) ~ “ Wade got paid , Fani got laid and Georgia taxpayers got played” pretty good synopsis …

She stole that denial line from DJT.

I’ve lost count of how many times he’s said it or put it in a truth post.

Young Deaf Google Employee Sues for Discrimination After Being Tokenized for Her Race and Disability

Jalon Hall made history when she became the first deaf and black employee to work for Google. 

Google shared Hall’s story in several social media posts, which aimed to demonstrate how inclusive the tech giant is.

No less than two months into her position at Google, Hall already felt she was being used as a way to promote the company’s diversity.   

Now, the employee has filed a lawsuit against her employer for discrimination, according to Wired.
