JOHN 13:1-15

1Now before the feast of the Passover, when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. 2And during supper, when the devil had already put it into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, to betray him, 3Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going to God, 4rose from supper, laid aside his garments, and girded himself with a towel. 5Then he poured water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel with which he was girded. 6He came to Simon Peter; and Peter said to him, “Lord, do you wash my feet?” 7Jesus answered him, “What I am doing you do not know now, but afterward you will understand.” 8Peter said to him, “You shall never wash my feet.” Jesus answered him, “If I do not wash you, you have no part in me.” 9Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” 10Jesus said to him, “He who has bathed does not need to wash, except for his feet, but he is clean all over; and you are clean, but not every one of you.” 11For he knew who was to betray him; that was why he said, “You are not all clean.” 12When he had washed their feet, and taken his garments, and resumed his place, he said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? 13You call me Teacher and Lord; and you are right, for so I am. 14If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. 15For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you.

@laralogan

BALTIMORE UPDATE: Analysis from specialists in predictive behavioral analytics, counter-terrorism, hazardous materials, maritime attacks, cyber, national security & intel – this is their view:

Based on their training & experience, they believe this was two types of operation:

1) “Penetration testing” where they are probing/testing to identify vulnerabilities in our responses and defences,

AND

2) a shaping operation to set the conditions and prepare the battlefield for a potential future event.

The concern is that other critical infrastructure disruptions/hits recently that appeared to be independent, isolated events, MAY not be. For example, the Ohio chemical disaster, train derailments, fires at food processing plants etc when taken in isolation do not appear to be that significant but when taken together, could indicate shaping or stacking operations that are paving the way for a bigger event where they do any number of these types of operations together. That could potentially paralyze the U.S..

So the critical question our government should be answering right now is this:

“When will they trigger a multiple episode that causes the paralysis effect?”

Some of the indicators are how many incidents have occurred within “a relatively short timeline” & what they see as the departure from what is “normal”.

They believe those in charge will make sure the investigation into the bridge crash “goes nowhere quick”.

And one of the goals here is to give the public mental anesthesia while they test this, using train derailments or exposure to chemicals in Ohio where they told everyone to shelter indoors – to ask questions like: Did they comply? Is this going to successfully deceive & cause behavioural change?

They use the media to create the assumptive narrative – do not want the facts analyzed because they do not want people processing the truth. Truth naturally leads to questions they do not want asked.

But it would be “foolish and naive at the expense of national security not to question the Government narrative on the Baltimore bridge crash given the level of corruption in spheres of power and influence in this country today”.

With many years of experience in “spoofing” – the tactic used in cyber warfare to hack into someones’s system and deceive in order to achieve a certain outcome – they recognized multiple indicators watching the video that tell them the GPS signal was likely hacked. It would have led them to believe they were not as close to the bridge as they were and may be why in the video you see the crazy lean to port and then to hard starboard as they realized they were not on course in spite of the GPS indicating they were.

In information warfare terms, here are some of the tactics they see being used now that many of you will recognize:

1) Engineered complexity – where they throw in nonsensical variables (information) to distract. This is designed to keep you from serially processing multiple channels & give you processing overload that prevents you from toggling different channels of information.

IE: they create processing decoys to distract you from truth.

2) They are trying to reframe the issue by focusing on details that do not matter. They do this by throwing in a variable that is not relevant to the main equation.

3) Common sense, skepticism and intelligence are huge “overlays” that get in the way of manipulating human behavior so they analyze you to learn how to create channel overload as you toggle/handle different channels of information such as the speed of the boat, temperature of the water etc.

3) They need to load you up with enough variance to create channel overload so you create an error that they can use to discredit you. One way is to create doubt in yourself. Most effective because you make yourself less efficient when your brain is processing self-doubt. And it will propogate into the future.

something else to consider about the timing of this bridge collapse incident…

it occurred one day after the full moon…precisely when the tidal current velocity was stronger than at other times…the water/tide level, at the time of the collision/collapse, was at the “dead low” level…something like 2 feet ?
and that’s a sandy bottom underneath there.

coincidence ?

right.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Good thinking. Yes – this was an op. Very likely long-planned and CCP just lucked out that it happened after the op in Russia.

Unless CCP did the op in Russia as part of LYAHF.

Since wind, tide and currents were primary in steering the ship this is an obvious factor. Finding tide and wind data going backwards proves frustrating and will take a more concentrated effort.

possible site that covers chesapeake bay but might want something more specific… https://www.tidetime.org/north-america/united-states/chesapeake-bay-calendar.htm

Here’s the timeline of events.

March 26 (Reuters) – Here is a timeline of the collapse on Tuesday of Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge after it was hit by the Singapore-flagged container ship Dali. All times are EDT:

ere’s the NTSB’s timeline in hours, minutes and seconds:
• Approximately 12:39 a.m.: The ship departed from Seagirt Marine Terminal.
• By 1:07:00 a.m.: The ship had entered the Fort McHenry Channel.
• 01:24:59 a.m.: Numerous audible alarms were recorded on the ship’s bridge audio. At about the same time, the VDR stopped recording ship system data but was able to continue recording audio using a different power source.
• 01:26:02 a.m.: The VDR resumed recording ship system data. During this time, steering commands and orders regarding the rudder were captured on audio.
• 01:26:39 a.m.: The ship’s pilot made a general very high frequency (VHF) radio call for tugboats in the vicinity to assist the vessel. Around this time, the pilot association dispatcher contacted the Maryland Transportation Authority duty officer regarding the blackout, according to transit authority data.
comment image
• Around 01:27:04 a.m.: The pilot ordered that the ship’s port anchor be dropped and issued additional steering commands.
• Around 01:27:25 a.m.: The pilot issued a radio call over the VHF radio, reporting that the vessel had lost all power and was approaching the bridge. Around this time, the transit authority duty officer radioed two of its units — one on each side of the bridge — that were already on scene and ordered them to close traffic on the bridge. All lanes were then shut down.
• Around 01:29 a.m.: The ship’s speed over ground was recorded at just under 8 miles per hour. From this moment until approximately 1:29:33, the VDR audio recorded sounds consistent with the collision with the bridge. Additionally, MDTA dash cameras show the bridge lights extinguishing.
• 01:29:39 a.m.: The pilot radioed the US Coast Guard to report the bridge was down.
There were 23 people onboard the cargo ship when it collided with one of the bridge’s columns, including 21 crew members and two pilots, who are tasked with getting the ship out of port. All crew members were safe, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore said previously.

beginning text:

When Hamas spokesman Abu Ubaida began a speech marking the 100th day of the war in Gaza, one confounding yet eye-opening proclamation escaped the headlines. Listing the motives for the Palestinian militant group’s Oct. 7 massacre in Israel, he accused Jews of “bringing red cows” to the Holy Land.

The cows he was talking about are red heifers, which now graze at a secure, undisclosed location in the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Some Jews and Christians believe they’re key to rebuilding the Jewish temple that once stood in Jerusalem, and to beckoning the Messiah.
To understand, you have to look back almost 2,000 years in the tumultuous history of the Middle East, when the ancient Romans destroyed the last temple in Jerusalem.
To rebuild it, fervent believers point to the Bible’s Book of Numbers, which commands the Israelites to offer “a red heifer without defect or blemish and that has never been under a yoke.”
Only with that offering, they insist, can the temple rise again.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

OMG – let me tell you how bad it is – even in science…..

Seriously – the TRUST in devices over common sense is everywhere. And if these pilots were KNOWN to trust devices….. by simply observing them…… BQQM.

scott467

“Seriously – the TRUST in devices over common sense is everywhere. And if these pilots were KNOWN to trust devices….. by simply observing them…… BQQM.”

___________

That has to be criminal negligence.

You have to be stupid to trust devices without verifying with your own eyes, in conditions above zero visibility.

And if visibility is zero, it’s a good idea to wait until it isn’t.

If that wasn’t true, if using one’s EYES was irrelevant, then the bridge (control room, wheelhouse) of a ship would face backwards, and pilots on planes would fly from a cockpit in the tail of the plane.

Both of those things are possible, but just because something is possible, doesn’t mean it’s ideal or even rational.

There is a reason why a windshield is called a windshield, it’s meant to shield the people behind it from the wind (and rain).

There is a reason for windshields being located in front of the person steering a boat, car, plane, etc., because that’s the direction the person who is steering is supposed to be looking.

There is a reason why windshields are clear, it’s so the person behind it can see through it.

There is a reason why people behind a windshield want to be able to see through it, and it’s not to view their instruments.

It’s to make sure you’re not about to run into something.

Like a bridge, for example.

OTOH, with aircraft, there IS such a thing as “Instrument Flight Rules” that are used whenever you can’t see. And that works pretty well provided the pilot is well trained and has instruments in order, and the navigational aids (radio beacons and things a lot more elaborate than simple beacons) are there. He’s also being watched by radar.

IFR training is in addition to a “regular” pilot’s license (which allows one to fly under Visual Flight Rules). There are specific rules governing when it is possible to fly VFR, and if they aren’t met, you must use IFR…and if you aren’t qualified for IFR, you must stay on the ground (or get someone else to fly you).

IFR involves constant communications with air traffic control; there’s a whole elaborate infrastructure in place. VFR can under many circumstances be done without ever talking to air traffic control, e.g., going from one rural, untowered airport to another. (If you are flying to an airport with a tower, you will have to let them direct you for that part of the flight.)

Incidentally, any flight above flight level 180 (roughly speaking, above 18,000 feet–there are technical differences between the two concepts), must be done under IFR, even if the sky is crystal clear. Do the pilots use their eyes anyway, in addition to the instruments? You betcha! (In essence this includes any cruising airliner.)

Airline pilots often fly when they can’t see, and on the whole it is a vastly safer mode of travel than people driving cars even in good weather.

scott467

Yes, and aircraft are rarely flying under a bridge. Not that it’s impossible, but it’s generally not advisable, unless you’re just doing it to prove you can do it.

Otherwise, it’s much better to just fly over the bridge.

Conversely, barges and cargo ships rarely fly over bridges.

The circumstances under which that would even be possible are extremely limited 👍

Actually aircraft can *taxi* under a bridge. Happens routinely at DIA, where there is an enclosed pedestrian bridge between the “Seventeen Madonnas” Jeppeson Terminal and Concourse A.

(That’s actually a decent way to avoid the long security lines; there’s security but most people don’t know about this way in.)

Well sure, but *taxi* is a whole different activity than *flying*

An old saw:

“Always try to fly in the middle of the air. It is much safer there. The edges of the air can be recognized by the presence of the ground, houses, mountains, the ocean, and outer space. It is very hard to fly there.”

Sounds like a plan!

Three red navigation lights on top of bridge as I recall. Center, left and right. Could double as AC warning lights. Mostly navigation IMO.

Likely lights near bridge support structure closer to water.

If the ship’s controls made it seem that they were on course but the crew realized they were not and that the controls were not giving them an accurate picture, then those people have information that is a ticking time bomb. Possible scenarios: they have been told not to talk because of national security, they have been paid off, they and their loved ones have been threatened, etc. But if this scenario is true, they could give us valuable information that of course the government does not want us to know.

Again, IF this is what happened and I were a member of that crew, I would be afraid for my life from now on.

Whether they speak or not, their lives, and family are hanging by a thread of sorts. So they’ll STFU, rather than have integrity. Slippery slope is never fixed by caving.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

They know exactly how to apply overwhelming pressure to one person, to get everyone else to cave.

In late 1917, here was the situation in Russia. Just a few months ago, Tsar Nicholas I, beset by a war that was going poorly, was forced to abdicate, and the monarchy collapsed. There was a Duma (legislature) that had previously had little power [it had been established after another revolt in 1905, but Nicholas basically ignored it]. They took over as a caretaker government pending election in early 1918 of a “Constituent Assembly” that would write a new constitution. Another, more spontaneous and more socialist group took over half of the palace and met as a a “Soviet of Workers’ Deputies” (a “soviet” was simply a council).

The future Communist Party of the Soviet Union was then a group named the Bolsheviks, and they were involved in the Soviet, but were not in charge. They did manage to persuade the Soviet to establish a small committee, the Military Revolutionary Committee, which was empowered to ensure that counter-revolutionaries did not overthrow the Soviet (which over the course of time since the Tsar had abdicated, had assumed more and more power, since over time people tended to pay the Provisional Government less attention since it was composed largely of people who had had positions under Nicholas II).

The Bolsheviks had a significant presence on the Military Revolutionary Committee (MilRevCom) and used that presence to stage a coup in November (October by the old calendar). They had soldiers on a cruiser in the harbor shell the palace where the Provisional Government was meeting, and seized all newspapers and the telephone exchange.

Most people at the time considered this illegitimate. In fact, much of the government bureaucracy, which had continued to function (the Provisional Government had provided some continuity of authority), simply went on strike in place. They showed up to work but refused to actually do any work.

In at least one case, a few men–well, thugs–from the Bolsheviks showed up to a government office with a dozen or so (maybe more; my memory is not complete) people doing none of the clerical work the government would need to function smoothly. They ordered the people to get back to work. They refused.

They singled out one man, put a gun to his head, and told HIM to work or they would kill him on the spot. After a few moments, he began typing. The rest of the room soon followed.

Problem solved, with no actual bullets expended. Intense pressure on one person, got dozens to comply where before they had vowed to resist.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Looks like our DOJ Bolsheviks are doing the same.

scott467

Showing up for work and doing nothing was the obvious mistake.

Doing that conveniently put everybody in one centralized spot to witness the coercion, and in turn, be coerced.

If everybody stayed home, or even better, went on vacation, there were not even a tiny fraction of the number of gov’t thugs necessary to hunt down tens of millions of people in order to make an example out of one of them.

And even if they did, nobody else would see the example, or even care.

Decentralization.

Yes, that’s an important point.

I can only infer that like government bureaucrats almost anywhere they got paid to show up, not necessarily to work. Productivity drops? They still get paid.

So the price of getting paid was that the informal strike could be broken easily.

scott467

Best thing to do is immediately go public after the gov’t threats are made.

Say that you were forced to sign an NDA under duress, making it null and void.

Say that they threatened yourself and your family with physical harm and false prosecution.

Say that they threatened to get you fired from your job.

Say that they threatened to seize your bank accounts and any other assets, like was done to the Canadian truckers.

Say that they threatened to have you murdered, that they would make it look like an accident, they used the term ‘Arkancided’, and they said they had lots of ways to do it.

They said they could poison you, cause you to have a car accident, cause you to die in your sleep with a pillow delicately balanced on your face, cause you to appear to have committed suicide in the usual government manner, with three shots to the back of the head and a suicide note in someone else’s handwriting.

They said they could leave your body in the street, with all your money and watch and cell phone still on you, and blame it on street robbers.

They said they could take you on a midnight tour of Fort Marcy Park, or leave you in a pile of bodies at the next government sponsored school shooting.

They said they could even make it look like you hung yourself with toilet paper from a bunk bed.

They said they could make it appear as though you drove into a pond and drowned, or that you went paddle-boarding late on a moonlit night with Barack Obama.

Say that trannies were in the room, advising the goons as to what threats they should make.

That last one is to make sure your whistle-blowing gets lots of attention.

Say that you’re just a simple man, but this all seemed extremely illegal and possibly treasonous, and you didn’t want to be implicated in some kind of rogue government facilitated treason, so you had no choice but to go public, to save the Republic.

You couldn’t allow yourself to be coerced into participating in the government’s crime, because you’re not a criminal, like they are.

The more cameras and media attention and controversy the better, that’s what you want.

If they do any of the things you say they threatened to do, you have already implicated them. If they do even one thing you said they threatened to do, it enhances the credibility of the rest of your claims, no matter how outlandish they may seem.

So you inoculate yourself against any of the threats they made, or could make.

And the only way the criminal government can prove anything you’re saying is false, is by revealing the recordings of what they actually threatened you with.

And of course, they can’t do that 😁

BREAKING: Whistleblower Claims Michael Avenatti Reportedly Revealed Michael Cohen Was Having Affair With Stormy Daniels Since 2006—Cooked Up Hush Money Scheme To Extort Money From Trump Before 2016 Election

This afternoon, Mr. Seruga dropped a bombshell, and if true, it could blow up the whole Stormy Daniels affair with Trump lie that the mainstream media and Democrats have been clinging to since 2015.

Tony Seruga claims he used to share office space with the convicted felon and former attorney, Michael Avenatti, who represented porn star Stormy Daniels in her case alleging that then-presidential candidate Donald J. Trump paid her hush money to keep their alleged “affair” out of the public.

Seruga’s tweet begins: “I spoke with Michael Avenatti, who at one time had an office in the same building as one of my businesses in Newport Beach, CA (in November 2018, a few days after his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence, Avenatti’s law firm was evicted from those same offices in Newport Beach after skipping $213,000 worth of rent payments.).”

And then, Seruga drops a bombshell:

“The whole hush money scheme was cooked up by Michael Cohen to extort the Trump Organization before the 2016 election. Avenatti seemed pleased at how deviant Michael Cohen was.”

Seruga followed up his first tweet by explaining how the shady lawyer Michael Avenatti bragged about the scheme more than once and even bragged about it to former NBA star Dennis Rodman on the patio in Corona Del Mar, CA. In addition to being one of the all-time best defensive players in the NBA, Dennis Rodman is known for his relationship with Madonna and his unusual friendship with North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un. So, it’s pretty easy to believe Rodman could be friends with the flamboyant CA lawyer Michael Avenatti.

WSB

If this really the case, PT is so much better than Sun Tzu.

This would explain why they took out Avenatti and Cohen, so no one would believe anything that may be exposed later.
Not that both aren’t sleaze balls.

Ex-CBS correspondent Catherine Herridge — known for Hunter Biden laptop reporting — in talks to join X

The award-winning journalist — who was controversially fired by CBS News in February in a round of layoffs by corporate parent Paramount — met with X CEO Linda Yaccarino at The Jefferson Hotel in Washington, DC earlier this month, according to a source with knowledge. 

The talks have been described as “preliminary.” A potential deal could see Herridge — known for her aggressive reporting on the Hunter Biden laptop scandal — helm an investigative unit that she could help put together, according to a source close to the situation…

Judge McAfee Orders Immediate Review of Trump RICO Co-Defendant Appeal Arguing Fani Willis Overstepped Her Authority

Law & Crime reported:

A co-defendant in the Georgia racketeering (RICO) and election subversion case against former President Donald Trump will be allowed to immediately appeal a series of trial court rulings against him to the Georgia Court of Appeals.

Fulton Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee on Monday granted a certificate of immediate review allowing Harrison Floyd, the former leader of Black Voices for Trump, to request a hearing from the higher court about his procedural motion to dismiss the case.

EXCELLENT LOGIC!

From OT:

From Beyond the Wire – The Information War, CBDCs and a Metaphor for Those Who Need
March 27, 2024

Excerpt

SD: “After my latest outline, on the looming probability of a dollar based Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) {SEE HERE}, I found myself saying, “I hate to say this, but most people really don’t care. For some, the issue is esoteric, abstract, and difficult to comprehend. For others, there is a massive blanket of comfortable ambivalence until the consequences hit. For the few who understand, this is extremely troubling.”

Then I step back, breathe and reevaluate my ability to communicate.”

____________

Your ability to communicate is awful, because there is no ‘co’ in your ‘municate’.

I care. I just have one simple question, the question that all the agitators and blood-pressure cranker-uppers never ever even hint at.

WHAT THE *&^# DO YOU WANT ANYONE TO DO ABOUT IT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I mean BESIDES getting enraged over it, and every other *&^#ing apocalyptic thing that we obsess over and analyze to death and do NOTHING about?

But he won’t have any answer.

Like all the others, they just turn the temperature up to 11, seal the lid on the pressure cooker, and wait for the explosion.

.
.
.

SD: “♦ Technology is intertwined with Central Bank Digital Currencies. Tech companies are regulated by the U.S/Western government, and the tech companies have to comply. The regulatory compliance is part of the process of control. There are regulatory walls around us that most do not understand. The same regulatory principle applies to finance and banking. Hence, the origination motive of the yellow zone wall, built under the auspices of Russian sanctions.

Let me make one big point resoundingly clear before moving on. When the WESTERN Central Bank Digital Currency system begins, all forms of cryptocurrency will be blocked and made unlawful inside the Western zone – either by regulation or by legislation.

Let me repeat this. Cryptocurrency in all forms will be banned.”

________________

How?

Do you even understand the basic principles of cryptocurrency?

If chyna, a near totalitarian control country, couldn’t ban it, how is anyone else going to?

And why would 330+ million Americans GO ALONG WITH IT?

Never any answers, only constant threat and fear of loss. Loss of freedom, loss of money, loss of country, loss of culture, etc.

Never an answer, never a solution, never a direction, just sow fear and hopelessness as far and wide as he possibly can.

.
.
.

SD: “Crypto is not technically a currency; it is a barter based on trust. However, at a certain point (origination or end) crypto must have the ability to transfer into currency value. Dollars (or another currency) are needed to purchase BitCoin,…. or BitCoin eventually sold or exchanged for Dollars (or another currency). [BitCoin only used as a familiar type of crypto.] This process is where crypto gets blocked.”

_______________

Wait until Larry Fink, head of Blackrock and the most successful ETF (Bitcoin) ever launched, finds out. He’s gonna be so mad.

Either Larry controls the politicians, or Larry went rogue.

Which is it?

If Larry controls the politicians, then Larry must be in on the biggest conspiracy in the world, where he insisted on the creation of a Bitcoin ETF, the SEC pretended to fight against, and then approved it, just so they can rug-pull everyone who invests in the ETFs.

The ETFs have been taking in hundreds of millions of dollars every day for 51 trading days now, and nobody’s Bitcoin ETF has taken in more money than Blackrock’s ETF.

So when the politicians (who do what Larry says) announce, from on high, that crypto is ‘banned’ or ‘unlawful’, Larry sure is gonna look stupid, but I’m sure that’s all part of the conspiracy.

Then comes a class action lawsuit from MILLIONS of Americans who invested in a perfectly lawful, approved, regulated ETF listed on the American stock exchanges, who just received the biggest RUG PULL in history.

Americans and people from around the world invested BILLIONS of dollars in the biggest capital market on earth, and the crooks at United States, Inc. will have just wiped out an entire new asset class by executive decree, in the United States of America.

And if they can do that to crypto, what’s next?

How’s that gonna work out?

Any answers, or just fear p0rn?

How do they pull that off, without dropping the mask completely, and going full HITLER?

If they’re not ready to go full Hitler, then how do they do this thing?

And if they are ready to go full Hitler, shouldn’t you (and everyone else) be worried about more than CBDCs?

.
.
.

SD: “Ownership of Crypto may not be unlawful, but any effort to use Crypto as an alternate digital currency to exchange value will be unlawful once the dollar based CBDC is launched.”

_____________

So what happens to the hundreds of millions of dollars invested in Blackrock and Fidelity and Ark and the other Bitcoin ETFs?

There should be at least 900,000 Bitcoin in all of the ETFs (including GBTC who started out with over 600,000 when the ‘trust’ converted into an ETF on January 11th).

900,000 Bitcoin x $69,564 each = $62.6 billion in assets. That’s just in the ETFs alone. That doesn’t include however many hundreds of billions are privately owned by Americans and people around the world.

You think anyone is going to notice, or care, if $62.6 billion in assets (plus hundreds of billions that are privately owned) are suddenly declared null and void?

And that doesn’t include MicroStrategy, which has over 214,000 Bitcoin and is now a $32 billion dollar company (and must be added to the S&P 500, whose threshold is ~$15 billion).

And that doesn’t include Elon Musk, whose company Tesla has 10,725 Bitcoin.

Do you think everyone (including all of the investors in these companies and ETFs) is just going to take it laying down?

If it goes to the (not)Supreme Court, and the (not)Supreme Court rules against Bitcoin, do you think that means the end of Bitcoin, or the end of America as we know it?

Have you thought ANY of this through?

.
.
.

A fully implemented govt controlled central bank digital currency will not allow competition. Alternate crypto currency will be banned. Without any doubt!

_____________

I would love to debate SD on this, but SD is and always has been a one-way / top-down communication portal, from him to you.

Countries have already tried to ban Bitcoin, and failed.

If the political-class wants to drop all pretense and declare open warfare against the People, this is the way to do it.

Go for it.

Make my day.

Sure looks like you have less-than-zero nostalgic impulses towards SD/CTH.  😂 

scott467

I appreciate that he brings public attention to a lot of important subjects, and it’s a good resource to point normies to.

But his unwillingness to directly engage in challenges to his views creates a giant blind spot, and the longer he goes without being pressed to defend his beliefs, the bigger his blind spot grows.

When someone has as much reach as he does, it’s a terrible idea to cut yourself off from your readers and only talk down to them.

Not to mention banning everyone who either questions or disagrees with his views.

That was one of the lamest things I have ever seen.

It was motivated by fear. Like he always says, the need to control is a reaction to fear.

He needed to take tyrannical measures on CTH to regain control, because too many people were asking questions he couldn’t answer, and making good points he couldn’t respond to.

That’s not the way he would tell it, but everybody knows.

I have only ever had a simple question.

If no one in the US can afford to buy anything, what happens to China?

scott467

They just expand into new markets, after dispatching their primary competitor — who didn’t even put up a fight, because Helen Reddy was in charge.

Helen makes big noise — she even roars — but Helen doesn’t fight.

And so that was the end of everything our Founding Fathers ever believed in or fought for.

On the plus side, my Photoshop skills are coming along nicely 😂

Maybe that’s an answer.

If the Crims steal the election again in November, and the usual oath-breakers do nothing (same as last time), then maybe the biggest peaceful protest of all is selling everything and leaving the country.

The country is already dead from debt as it is.

If any significant percentage of those who can afford to leave DO leave, the brain drain and capital drain (and tax base drain) will help speed the imminent and much deserved demise of this kleptocracy.

I doubt the U.S. even ranks in the top ten best places to live anymore.

Just checked, it’s not even close!

Looks like America is ranked #59 on the list of freest countries in the world. There are only 195 countries, and we’re all the way down to #59 and sinking fast 😂

Ranked #23 in Quality of Life.

This is all over the place now in the United States. It’s called a “Stormwater Fee” or a “Stormwater Tax” or something similar. The homeowner is taxed by the locality for the square footage of “impermeable surfaces” on their property — things like roofs, asphalt/concrete driveways and sidewalks, etc. Some places, like DURHAM, NC, also count things like GRAVEL driveways and sidewalks as “impermeable surfaces” and include these square footages into the homeowner’s “Stormwater Fee” that’s an “add-on tax” to the homeowner’s annual real estate tax levy.
And, just like any other tax, the “Stormwater Fee” goes up every year.

That must really pay off in cities that demand that you don’t water grass or vegetation so the homeowners put in hardscape instead.

mollypitcher5
There are numerous properties around the area where Yours Truly is whose owners have removed flower beds, etc, and have replaced them with various types of hardscape (ornamental rock walls, rock gardens, and so forth.) However, if Durham County deems the replacement items as “impermeable surfaces”, the homeowner can still get hit with an increased “Stormwater Fee” calculated on the square footage of said rock garden, etc., if there’s gravel or small stone cover used.

Please

Sounds like you get taxed for ground that doesn’t absorb water, but it is illegal to capture the water or use it to grow food.

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This case is such a farce, but then again it is all supposed to be “Get Trump” regardless of how much it degrades our judicial processes. The Court of Public Opinion is meant to smear the defendant. I wonder if they realize these cases are only empowering our President Trump.

“2018 Letter From Michael Cohen’s Lawyers Admitting Trump Knew Nothing About Stormy Daniels ‘Hush Money’ Transaction Re-Emerges Ahead of Trial”
A 2018 letter from Michael Cohen’s lawyers admitting Trump knew nothing about the Stormy Daniels ‘hush money’ transaction re-emerged as the judge set the trial for April 15.
Excerpts:The letter also states that the Trump Org nor the Trump campaign reimbursed Michael Cohen for the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels.
This directly contradicts Cohen’s testimony – not surprising given Michael Cohen is a convicted perjurer.
Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed Mr. Cohen for the payment directly or indirectly,” the lawyer wrote.
“Contrary to the allegations in the complaint, which are entirely speculative, neither Mr. Cohen nor Essential Consultants LLC made any in-kind contributions to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., or any other presidential campaign committee.” he said.

whoa…they leave this info out of the commercials i bet! ev tires are the new “oil change”…like every 5-6000 miles and they’re pricey!

FTA
Automotive dealer software company CDK Global published a lengthy study about EV service in late 2023. In it, one respondent said that “when it comes to EVs, tires are the new oil change.” We published a story last August about Rivian R1Ts needing new rubber after as few as 6,000 miles. Not all EV owners deal with such egregious wear, but considering most service shops recommend oil changes every 5,000 miles on gasoline-powered cars, the comparison checks out in that case.
It only becomes more disconcerting when you see how pricey EV-specific tires are. If you’re looking at the Goodyear ElectricDrive, they start at $201 apiece. Step up to the ElectricDrive GT models and they’re $271 a pop, meaning it’s nearly $1,100 for a set. And while these would work for a Tesla Model 3, they wouldn’t properly fit a Rivian, whose 275/65R20 Pirelli Scorpion All-Terrain Plus tires cost $461.68 each.

newscum exempts his other crony friends from the $20 minimum wage law…

FTA

California Governor Gavin Newsom just signed Assembly Bill 610 into law, which is the “clean up bill” granting exemptions for the $20 fast food minimum wage for fast food restaurants. Because as the Globe reported, Newsom’s PaneraGate scandal is admission that California’s arbitrary minimum wage laws hurt all businesses, but especially small to medium sized businesses.

It’s pretty clear now that the sole purpose of the law, given the specific exempted restaurants, is all part of the destruction of the middle class.

The bill language says: “This bill would exempt additional restaurants from the definition of “fast food restaurant,” including such restaurants in airports, hotels, event centers, theme parks, museums, and certain other locations.”

AB 610 will exempt fast food restaurants in airports, hotels, event centers, theme parks, museums, gambling establishments, corporate campus cafeterias, and Publicly owned lands including ports, piers, beaches and parks concessions – not just from the $20 an hour minimum wage starting April 2024, but also from regulation by Gov. Newsom’s creepy new Fast Food Council, which the Globe has reported on as government expansion and control.

The op-ed in The Washington Times appears to just hint at a possible role of these “vaccines.” Perhaps this was done to make sure that some “fact-checker” wouldn’t call on the newspaper to retract the op-ed.

On another topic, a “mini ground report” —
Yours Truly was at dinner with MD son, MD DIL, and family this week. One of the topics discussed was their upcoming trip to visit DIL’s aunt. DIL’s aunt and her husband (both in their 60s, both “fully vaccinated and boosted”) were diagnosed with cancer after both coming down with COVID last Thanksgiving. DIL had had breast cancer, in remission for years, prior to getting “vaccinated and boosted.” Now, she has pancreatic cancer. Her husband, healthy prior to getting “vaccinated and boosted”, now has throat cancer. Both are doing chemo. “The doctors are baffled.”

All we can give now is sympathy. So sad.

AND, they have yet to connect the dots.

You are an Angel for trying to alert them to truth, while biting your tongue.

I’d have unleashed truth bombs. Politely, but firmly.

But that is also why I’m ostracized from siblings.

Double edged sword. Truly good you have a positive relationship with son, get to see Grands…

I ponder my past decisions. Wise or short sighted. It’s all so very sad, More positives with your reality. MeThinks.

Just rambling a bit.

I do hope, son wakes up soon.

Correction: It’s the DIL’s aunt who had had breast cancer years ago and it was in remission, NOT the DIL herself. Mea Culpa for left-out word “aunt” in the “mini ground report.”

Emerald Robinson Drops the Must-Read CCP Reich-Speech in the Aftermath of What Looks Like WWII Nazi Sabotage with a Cyber Update

Speaking of “coincidences” in the aftermath of the “accidental” destruction of a critical bridge, I think it’s no coincidence that the brave and prescient Emerald Robinson dropped this particular post. https://www.emerald.tv/p/the-secret-speech-of-chinas-general The Secret Speech …

Question for attorneys or those familiar with the “law”:

When someone is sworn in (Tell the truth, the whole truth….)

What if they say: NO?
Or just remain silent.

What happens next?

TheseTruths

I’m not an expert. My guess is the person would be held in contempt of court. I’m not sure what that entails. Another guess is that the person might be given opportunities to cooperate, and if they don’t, they could see jail time.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

If the witness is not testifying against himself, he can be compelled. What that entails when they simply shut up, I don’t know but I imagine you’re in the ballpark. I’ve heard of cases of people being jailed for refusing to testify. (Remember Susan McDougal in the Whitewater case. I have no idea how the Clintons rewarded her loyalty, but then again she may actually have been in fear for her life.)

pgroup2

Keep in mind that Susan openly refused to testify. Most judges are aware that a witness can have ‘sudden amnesia’ but that would be after being sworn in.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Now that you mention it, that’s close to the situation originally asked about. Which was someone answering “No” when asked if they would tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, etc.

In other words a person refusing to testify, not one suddenly having amnesia.

Barb Meier

Hillary took a tax deduction on donating her underwear. She is not someone who hands out rewards to others.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

True.

She’s much more interested in a transaction…which rewarding someone for not testifying, would be.

Nevertheless…I have no idea what consideration Susan McD received for not testifying. For all I know she and Bill were having an affair or something like that, and she was willing to do anything to keep his putrid ass out of prison.

pgroup2

Then their testimony cannot be used as evidence.

The consequences of such a refusal should be subject to a show cause hearing why the person shouldn’t be held in contempt [prove your innocent hearing]. Theoretically in a criminal case it could be called obstruction of official proceedings. Depending on what the person’s testimony was going to be, it could be called obstruction of justice. At the least, the judge would want to know why the person is refusing to be sworn. The attitude displayed by the person could result in a finding of direct [in the courtroom] contempt.

The State of Georgia Fulton County is off to a bad start in this morning’s hearing in the Get Trump hoax. The State can only cite the opinion of Trump hating DC Judge Chutkan. The regime side asserts that they know that President Trump knew that the election was not stolen. It’s mind reading. The good guys say all defendants have First Amendment rights and that core political speech and opinions about the election are protected. It’s a fight over election speech. President Trump’s attorney Steve Sadow cites the Constitutional protection of political (including election) speech.

TheseTruths

The good guys say all defendants have First Amendment rights and that core political speech and opinions about the election are protected.

This is a basic, bedrock, ground-floor, primary, fundamental, foundational (how redundant can one be??? 😅) premise of American rights. The case is ridiculous. It should be dropped, and those who brought it should be sanctioned in some way.

mollypitcher5

The premise of being conservative and speaking is becoming worthy of lawsuits.
Another example~~~

California judge has recommended that John Eastman, former lawyer for ex-president Donald Trump, lose his law license over accusations that Eastman attempted to help overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

Eastman, former dean of Chapman University School of Law, is facing 11 misconduct charges from the State Bar of California, accused of pushing to keep Trump in power by “executing a strategy, unsupported by facts or law, to overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 presidential election by obstructing the count of electoral votes of certain states.”

State Bar Court of California Judge Yvette Roland recommended on Wednesday that the conservative lawyer be banned from practicing law in the Golden State. Roland’s decision does not automatically disbar Eastman, with a ruling from the California Supreme Court being the next step in the process. Eastman would still be able to appeal if the state’s high court concurs with Roland.

He won’t be disbarred. And if he is, SCOTUS will reverse it.

Gold going up and up.

Silver needs to catch up.

And platinum is still absurdly low.

I traded eight ounces of gold for ten ounches of platinum many, many years ago figuring platinum would increase relative to gold.

That trade has now cost me about ten grand.

The longer the lunacy goes on, the less that 10K is worth. So the pain should be lessening, right?

Except that that figure is going up faster than inflation…right now.

Actually I might be glad someday I have that platinum!

Closed at about $2233 but there is after-hours trading going on. (That’s true except after Friday close.)

BREAKING: My office will be filing suit against Joe Biden for his latest illegal student loan plan.
The Supreme Court sided with us on this matter the first time. I look forward to bringing home yet another win for the Constitution and the rule of law.
Proud to be leading a coalition alongside @AGTimGriffin to block President Biden’s latest attempt to unlawfully transfer hundreds of thousands of dollars in Ivy League debt onto working families.
I’m extremely pleased to see @KSAGOffice is leading a multi-state coalition in bringing suit as well.
Between our two coalitions of states, we will get this matter in front of a judge even more quickly to deliver a win for the American people.

SCOTUS shot down JB’s student loan forgiveness program, so I’m guessing they changed the wording in something and tried again? They’re like the kid who is told to pick up his clothes but he doesn’t pick up the shoes because they weren’t specifically mentioned.

Delivering Mayorkas impeachment papers only took a month or more, since House impeached the asshole.   :wpds_evil: 

litenmaus

Kalbo, when the Senate receives the impeachment papers they MUST CEASE all Senatorial work. Had Speaker Johnson delivered them before the $1.2 Trillion continued resolution was passed, the government would have shut down……Which is against the better interests of the UniParty..hence the month+ time period before the impeachment papers being delivered to the Senate….

pat frederick

thanks for that! I didn’t know that

litenmaus

:0) yw..

When the Impeachment papers are delivered to the Senate, the Senate becomes known as the “Impeachment Court” for the duration of the trial and since the Senate “officially” becomes a Court, the Supreme Court provides a Chief Justice to preside over it during Presidential Impeachment trials.

pat frederick

Roberts? or since it a dem and majorjerkass, will they send the new gal who doesn’t know what a woman is, so she probably doesn’t know what illegal aliens are either cuz she’s not a border guard

:0) My thoughts have run along the same track pat…I would not be surprised if Ketanji Jackson-Brown is appointed.

TheseTruths

If the sitting president is on trial, the presiding judge is the Chief Justice of SCOTUS, per the Constitution.

In an impeachment trial of an incumbent president of the United States, the chief justice of the United States serves as the presiding officer.[2] This is per the Constitution, Article I, section 3, clause 6.

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

If someone other than the president is on trial, the Constitution doesn’t specify who should preside. I would think they would have an experienced justice in that role, but who knows?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Presumably any Justice who was an actual judge before being elevated to SCOTUS [historically not all have been] would be “experienced” enough to preside over a trial in the Senate.
