ACTS 8:26-40

26But an angel of the Lord said to Philip, “Rise and go toward the south to the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is a desert road. 27And he rose and went. And behold, an Ethiopian, a eunuch, a minister of the Can’dace, queen of the Ethiopians, in charge of all her treasure, had come to Jerusalem to worship 28and was returning; seated in his chariot, he was reading the prophet Isaiah. 29And the Spirit said to Philip, “Go up and join this chariot.” 30So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and asked, “Do you understand what you are reading?” 31And he said, “How can I, unless some one guides me?” And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him. 32Now the passage of the scripture which he was reading was this: “As a sheep led to the slaughter or a lamb before its shearer is dumb, so he opens not his mouth. 33In his humiliation justice was denied him. Who can describe his generation? For his life is taken up from the earth.” 34And the eunuch said to Philip, “About whom, pray, does the prophet say this, about himself or about some one else?” 35Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning with this scripture he told him the good news of Jesus. 36And as they went along the road they came to some water, and the eunuch said, “See, here is water! What is to prevent my being baptized?” 38And he commanded the chariot to stop, and they both went down into the water, Philip and the eunuch, and he baptized him. 39And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught up Philip; and the eunuch saw him no more, and went on his way rejoicing. 40But Philip was found at Azo’tus, and passing on he preached the gospel to all the towns till he came to Caesare’a.

Kyle Becker:

National Guard Captain Blows Up J6 Narrative, Accuses U.S. Govt of Lying to the American People

“I’m here today to aid the subcommittee in resolving factual errors in the official record of what happened on January 6th, 2021, specifically regarding the alleged District of Columbia National Guard delayed response caused by a critical presidentially appointed, Senate-confirmed Pentagon senior officials,” Captain Timothy Nick testified under oath on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. […]

“First, I want to explain my role on January 6th. I was assigned as aid to camp the personal assistant to Major General William Walker, the commanding General of DC National Guard. It was my only second day on the job (!). Please focus on alleged facts found in the November 16th, 2021 Department of Defense Inspector General’s multidisciplinary review into the DC National Guard response and Department of Defense’s role that day.”

“I can say unequivocally that the Inspector General’s Review is riddled with inaccuracies, misstatements, and perhaps false flags and narratives regarding how critical Pentagon senior officials responded when our republic was under great stress (!!).”

“For instance, during a conference call at 2:31 PM with members of United States Army, US Capitol Police, Metropolitan Police Department, District of Columbia Government, and US Secret Service Uniform Division, the US Army’s Lieutenant General Walter Piatt, Director of Army staff and the Army’s Lieutenant General Charles Flynn, Director of Chief of Staff of Operations were on the call.” Also was Colonel John Lubas, executive officer to the Secretary of the Army.”

“The Army FALSELEY DENIED that General Flynn was ever on the call. This is false and material on its face. Lieutenant Flynn was on the call and even participated in discussions. The defense inspector’s review also rounds language papering over the fact that Lieutenant General Piatt, Lieutenant General Flynn, while on the call discussed how they did not like the OPTICS.”

“That is a direct quote, and they stated it would be in their best military advice to recommend to the Secretary of the Army, Ryan McCarthy, to deny the request from Command General William Walker to deploy the DC National Guard and aid US Capitol Police in restoring restoration of Order Liberty on Capitol Hill.”

“In addition, former [Army] Secretary Ryan McCarthy claims he was on a two three 1:00 PM call and spoke on that call. This is FALSE, unless he was in the room shadowing the call and he did not speak nor identify himself.”

“He was not on the call. He was en route to Washington, DC Regional office at the Federal Bureau of Investigation to support that agent’s concept of operations plan for January 6th.”

“He went on the claim that he called and spoke to Major General Walker at least twice, ordering the deployment of the DC National Guard. This is also FALSE. At no time did General Walker take any calls, nor did we ever hear from the secretary on any of the ongoing conference calls or the secure video teleconferencing throughout the day.”

“This I know because I was with the Command General the entire time recording events throughout the day. Major General Walker told by staff officers to stand by with respect to deploying to the Capitol Hill. Only at 5:09 PM in the early evening, which I wrote down in my wheel book, was the DC Guard given an order to deploy and move to the Capitol to assist Capitol Police.”

“We arrived too late. One American laid dead with other sisters and brothers injured, including federal and local law enforcement officers. We were ready and standing by. I know if we were able to deploy immediately, when General Walker made the request, the National Guard could have helped and civil disturbance and restored public order quickly.”

“The Army National Guard motto was always ready, always there. The DC National Guard was ready to help and assist Capitol Police, but we were NOT ALLOWED to do our job due to paralyzed decision-making by acting Secretary of Defense,Chris Miller and Secretary of the Army, Ryan McCarthy…”

“This led to a crisis in federal leadership at the Pentagon and delayed the DC response by 3 hours and 19 minutes.”

This is critical testimony exposing the U.S. government as perpetrating a false narrative of events for January 6 to frame Donald Trump as participating in a treasonous “insurrection” when the opposite was true.

The President of the United States had pre-authorized the deployment of 10,000 National Guard troops and delegated this responsibility to the Secretary of the Army.

But instead of deploying National Guard troops to secure the capitol during the election challenges in the Electoral College, the Pentagon delayed dispatching troops over an alleged concern for “optics,” even as the same government would later call January 6 ‘an existential threat to democracy.’

The U.S. government allowed the January 6 riots to happen in order to frame Donald Trump and his supporters as ‘insurrectionists.’ It is simple as that.

Parents of Covenant School shooting victims beg judge not to release shooter Audrey Hale’s manifesto

Parents of the victims of the 2023 Covenant School shooting begged a judge not to release the killer’s manifesto at a hearing in Nashville Tuesday. 

Transgender Audrey Hale killed three children and three adults at her former school in March last year before being shot by police. The 28-year-old left behind at least 20 journals, a suicide note, and an unpublished memoir which the school and associated church have made a huge effort to prevent being released. 

Media companies and free speech advocates are suing to make Hale’s writings public, citing the public’s right to know what motivated the shooting.

At the second day of hearings Wednesday, the court heard from victims’ families. One written affidavit presented in court implored Judge I’Aesha L. Myles to bar the release of the writings.

“I will not stand by to allow these shooter’s writings be published in any way. This mass murderer doesn’t get to speak from the grave,” wrote Erin Kinney, whose 9-year-old son William was killed by Hale.

“I find my heart heavier with grief that I could never imagine,” Kinney added. “I must live through every single hour that my child is gone from this world … Despite this immense pain, I implore you to serve what little justice you can.” 

I’m sorry for their pain, but IMO it is no excuse for covering up facts about this event. Emotional pain is unrelated to the public’s right to know.

Free speech attorneys arguing for the manifesto’s release have previously addressed parents’ statements, pointing out that while they may be traumatized, the matter should not be decided by them. 

Robb Harvey, representing The Tennessean media outlet, pointed out the parents were not actually the victims of the crime, saying: “What happened that day, it’s a tragedy, but it doesn’t mean that everyone at the school is a victim.”

The parents were added to the lawsuit in December after a Tennessee court of appeals ruled they could be a part of it. 

Lawyers also argued Wednesday they own the copyright to the writings, because Hale’s family turned over the estate to the victims’ families after the incident. 

“Imagine us going to Taylor Swift’s residence and they collect Ms. Swift’s writings and found 10 new songs,” the families’ attorney Eric Osborne told the court. “We are in the same position as Ms. Swift. This is copyright and shouldn’t be public.”

But judge Myles seemed unimpressed with the copyright argument, saying that everything written down is not automatically copyrighted. “This might be a federal court issue,” she said. “But if everything written is copyrighted, then nothing can be public record.” 

…At the previous day’s hearing, Pierce had explained the burden of proof is on those trying to suppress the documents from being released, rather than those seeking it and pointing out “the strong general rule is information is available to the public.” 

Pierce also said the argument for copycat killers is weak, and studies have shown the window in which such actions take place is very short.

At the end of court on Wednesday, Judge Myles acknowledged that the release of the manifesto was a complex issue. “You have placed a heavy burden on me,” she told attorneys. “It’s not something I take lightly.” 

…In arguments after the hearing. She gave them a seven-day deadline to file the briefs. 

Myles will likely rule after she has had a chance to review those arguments. Both sides have vowed to appeal the ruling if it doesn’t go their way, meaning the issue is unlikely to be resolved any time soon.

“I’m sorry for their pain, but IMO it is no excuse for covering up facts about this event. Emotional pain is unrelated to the public’s right to know.”

________________

100%.

My guess is that the families who object are all virtue-signalling Leftist d-rats who believe their mission in life is to defend the thin rainbow-colored line.

What other rational reason could they possibly have?

cthulhu

Funny, I was thinking that there may have been a pattern of well-documented bullying (and potential grooming) going back some years.

scott467

There could certainly be evidence of that in the diaries and manifestos, etc.

But why would the families want to cover up grooming?

As for bullying, if someone shows up at school and it’s a boy dressed as a girl (or vice versa), they’re going to get the attention they are seeking.

Kids used to get bullied for not wearing the ‘right’ clothing brands. I remember a girl in 6th grade who was cornered by several other girls who noticed that her Izod shirt wasn’t really an Izod shirt. They checked the tag inside the collar (against the wishes of the girl wearing the shirt) to verify it, and then mocked her until she cried.

Kids can be cruel once they reach a certain age.

It’s INSANE to condone or allow trannies in an environment like that.

It’s cruel to the tranny who is mentally ill and definitely going to be harassed, and it’s even worse harassment for the school to bully everyone into pretending like trannies are normal.

Everything always going against nature is a sign that something is really, really wrong.

Q: But why would the families want to cover up grooming?

A: Three of the victims were adults.

pgroup2

I never thought of that. Kudos.

cthulhu

The whole mess needs air and light — and if there’s something embarrassing for the school or the victims or the administration, tough.

scott467

Good answer! I didn’t know that.

If there are groomers who played a part in the shooter’s motive, why would the State aid in the coverup of adult groomers who prey on children, unless the DA’s office are groomers too?

cthulhu

Or if the groomers were politically connected….

Brave and Free

With the church…

TheseTruths

FWIW, I know someone who knows a relative of one of the adult victims. Although I didn’t know the victim personally, I don’t believe she was involved in grooming.

Aubergine

My first thought was, who got to the parents?

Valerie Curren

It is possible that they are just deeply traumatized & want the whole thing out of the news so they can attempt to heal in relative privacy & peace…

Aubergine

If somebody killed my kid, I would want their dirty laundry exposed to the whole world. But that’s me.

Valerie Curren

I have no idea how I’d react in such a scenario & hope to Never Find Out, but I do have some sort of shut down mechanism that has kicked in related to PTSD issues from time to time…but that’s me (apparently) 🙂

Aubergine

All of us are generally inclined to Fight, Flight, or Freeze. I am inclined to Fight, as you may have noticed. PTSD (which I also have from childhood abuse) affects us all differently, I guess.

I agree.

Aubergine

This is another case of a handful of people’s rights superseding the rights of the majority. Our whole society is collapsing because of that kind of nonsense. The rights of the many outweigh, in most cases, the rights of the few or the one.

rayzorback

What Marxist Bullshit is this?

Aubergine

Of course they do. Otherwise, transgenders, gays, and other tiny minorities dictate to the rest of us how things are going to be.

mollypitcher5

The motive driving a mass killing spree should be public. If these writings explain a descent into madness it’s important because this killer was young. There hadn’t been a lifetime of extreme abuser or drug addiction that usually is part of psychotic murderers history.
It bothers me that the child victims at the school obviously were too young to have any hand in bullying so they were sacrificed in revenge?

“Of course they do. Otherwise, transgenders, gays, and other tiny minorities dictate to the rest of us how things are going to be.”

_________

Your point is understood, but the rights of the Individual are paramount in a Republic (or at least in our Republic).

The whole system is based on that premise.

If it wasn’t, then a group of people could get together and vote to take all of your stuff (and make you walk the plank, without due process).

In our system, no matter how many people gang up on you, the State is obligated to protect the rights of the individual against the wishes of the mob.

That’s where the whole “What’s a democracy? It’s two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner” meme comes from.

The way to deal with the problem is that no one has the right to violate the rights of anyone else.

That means parents have no right to violate their children by mutilating them (or murder them in the womb, for that matter).

That means that no tranny or homo has the right to force or compel anyone else to ‘recognize’ their insanity or cater to it.

And the tranny and homo have no right to expose themselves in public or talk to children (or anyone else who doesn’t want to hear it) about their sexual depravity.

The laws and values and principles are well established to protect everyone’s rights.

The problem is that marxists decided to create SPECIAL rights and make protected classes out of every deviant and every race that wasn’t white, and protected-classes out of everyone who isn’t a Man.

That destroys the entire foundation of ‘equal justice under law’ and creates a caste system, where those with protected-class status are above the law.

The people with the most protected-class cards are super citizens, and white men aren’t even 3/5ths of a person.

All by design.

Transparency could lead to discovery of people complicit in mass murder. While for most of us, it is curiosity, for LEOs, it should be investigated for possible accessory prosecutions. She was young. Who encouraged her and were they instrumental in making her crazy? Was she getting drugs that caused her to become unhinged? We need more answers to prevent more of these Trans murderers if we can.

Barb Meier

That should be what happens. Who knows what will be done, but I have little faith at the federal level.

What you speculate may be true but I am fundamentally opposed to giving LE a fishing license. FISA has demonstrated that ethics are no match for the thirst for power and ambition.

In data analysis, that means look at two hops, but not three. Even at two hops or a direct connection, a person may have no idea they are interacting with a terrorist.

Everything about transgender is wrong, being pushed for nefarious reasons, needs to be exposed for All To See.

Transgender types are mentally ill. Get there on their own OR Managed by Experts…quacks, phycologists, counselors…batshit crazy types.

The rights of the many outweigh, in most cases, the rights of the few or the one.

From my perspective that is not true. I think I know what you mean (the needs of the many) but the rights of individuals are independent of any idea of majority or minority. In my view this Nashville case is not a rights issue, it is a civil dispute over the release of information. The government has a legal mechanism to withhold information. They classify it as too sensitive for the public to know. National security is at stake. The average citizen or group of citizens can only seek legal redress through the courts to achieve suppression or release of closely held information. In my opinion “rights” talk has become so broad that it is becoming meaningless. Something on the order of “racist”.

pgroup2

That sounds like a rayciss opinion to me.

You’re welcome.

  :wpds_lol: 

TheseTruths

In my view this Nashville case is not a rights issue, it is a civil dispute over the release of information.

I agree with this. It takes the issue of who has greater rights off the table.

The Constitution ensures that the rights of individuals are protected. The Declaration of Independence states that each of us (i.e., each individual) has inalienable rights that include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Those are very strong indications of the importance of individual rights. 

At the same time, individuals do not get to trample on other people’s rights (or at least they shouldn’t be able to). People should not be able to take others’ rights to travel freely on the highways, for example. The individual has a right to protest, but not to do it in such a way that it infringes on other people’s rights. I suspect that is what Aubergine was referring to.

But I don’t think this is an issue about rights. The Left tries to make “rights” where they don’t exist (right to health care, right to guaranteed income, right to not be offended, etc.). As you say, this is a dispute over the release of information. I don’t even know why it is a civil dispute. I thought that in all cases of this kind, where crimes were committed, the mindset of the criminal was revealed so society could learn from it.

Aubergine

Hmmm. Well, what if in those writings there are clues to “how” she became mentally ill? Was she MK’ed? Was she groomed? Abused? Was she on pharmaceuticals or illegal drugs? That stuff really is in the best interest of people to know, in my opinion.

TheseTruths

I’m not current on this case, and I’m wondering if she has been acknowledged to have been mentally ill, or if we just believe that because she was transgender.

The crux of the matter, right after it happened, was that people on our side wanted to know what role her transgenderism and probable grooming played in her actions. The Left wanted to keep that hidden. That’s why it’s important to see her writings. And there is not one agency that I trust to examine them.

TheseTruths

A little research revealed that she was under a doctor’s care for an undisclosed “emotional disorder.” That could mean a lot of things. It could mean gender dysphoria-related issues that directly relate to this case. Her taking of lives, and her death, negate the right to privacy, IMO. The deaths of those people affected many, including me. I was notified by someone I knew about the tragedy because they knew a relative of one of the deceased. It affects all of society. The public has a right to know what her mental issues were, what kind of counseling she was getting, what drugs she had been prescribed, and her mindset which would be revealed in her writings.

Aubergine

My belief is, since she was transgender, she was, de facto, mentally ill.

TheseTruths

Yes, but I think the Left is fighting that with everything it has. That’s why I think it’s so important to reveal any connections between her mental issues and her transgenderism.

Aubergine

Gotcha.

mollypitcher5

If the timeline of her mental decline can be attributed to psychotropic drugs or hormonal therapy it is of concern to all. Transgender murderers are becoming prolific, why?

kalbokalbs

Transgenders are mentally ill. They either go off the deep end on their own or are, pushed, so to speak.

TheseTruths

This is one reason why so many were calling for the release of her writings right after it happened. The media and many politicians coddle transgenders and try to normalize transgenderism, and the release of a manifesto by a transgender person that revealed her to be a) mentally ill, b) groomed by someone or some agency, c) not obviously mentally ill but filled with hatred for “normal” people, demonstrating that some transgenders are not just harmless people that we need to “love,” etc., would not fit the narrative. Therefore, her writings had to be hidden at all costs.

That’s what this is about. That’s why, IMO, it’s important to reveal her materials. Having clear evidence that a transgender person murdered people in cold blood for reasons related to her gender dysphoria would shatter the Left’s narrative.

Valerie Curren

Having clear evidence that a transgender person murdered people in cold blood for reasons related to her gender dysphoria would shatter the Left’s narrative.” Bingo! This info will continue to be heavily suppressed. IF it is allowed to be made public it will be a page 99 release to no fanfare & up to Anon-type people to discover it I would guess  😠 

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Properly understood rights cannot conflict with each other.

Aubergine

Is that sort of like, your rights end where mine begin?

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Sortakindabotnotreally.

For instance, people will sometimes claim that a business must let you speak out while on their property, or stage a sit in or what have you. They’ll claim that the business is violating their first amendment rights by way of invoking their property rights.

But in fact, the would be protester has no actual right to be there in the first place. The business can’t make them shut up but they can require them to leave.

Now some will claim that the business is open to the public and that therefore the business can’t ask you to leave, but all that “open to the public” means is that instead of it being “stay off my property unless explicitly invited” the rule is “you can come onto my property unless explicitly forbidden.” (Both protect the property rights of the property owner; it’s just a different way of his asserting them.)

My uncle and my dad were also in New Guinea for a time during WWII. My uncle was on a baseball team in his spare time and wrote my dad about it. My dad was getting new paperwork after being on a troop carrier that was sunk near Luzon Bay and surviving. No word of cannibals from my family.

President Biden twice implied Wednesday that his uncle Ambrose Finnegan was eaten by cannibals in New Guinea after his plane crashed during World War II — even though military records show that the aircraft plunged into the Pacific.

“He got shot down in an area where there were a lot of cannibals at the time,” Biden initially told reporters after visiting a war memorial that bears his uncle’s name in Scranton, Pa.

“They never recovered his body, but the government went back when I went down there and they checked and found some parts of the plane.”

https://nypost.com/2024/04/17/us-news/biden-suggests-uncle-eaten-by-cannibals-in-new-guinea-but-military-says-his-wwii-plane-lost-at-sea/

Aubergine

What I want to know is, where are all the leftists calling out Biden’s statement for the racist trope that it is?

The people of New Guinea are not all cannibals. They never were. There was one cannibal tribe, the Korowai, that up until the 1970s are not known to have ever even seen a white person, much less have eaten one.

https://theculturetrip.com/pacific/papua-new-guinea/articles/meet-the-korowai-tribe-of-papua-new-guinea

Biden is a serial racist, and nobody on the left ever acknowledges it.

Valerie Curren

There was a Michael Crichton book that had some white leftard going to PNG, iirc, & ultimately getting eaten. I think it was loosely based on a real event. I believe that MC snuck in all sorts of scientific proof about the climate change hoax as footnotes in the book, something Rush talked about back in the day…This Might be the book:

State of fearby Crichton, Michael, 1942-2008SummaryNew York Times bestselling author Michael Crichton delivers another action-packed techo-thriller in State of Fear.

When a group of eco-terrorists engage in a global conspiracy to generate weather-related natural disasters, its up to environmental lawyer Peter Evans and his team to uncover the subterfuge.
 
From Tokyo to Los Angeles, from Antarctica to the Solomon Islands, Michael Crichton mixes cutting edge science and action-packed adventure, leading readers on an edge-of-your-seat ride while offering up a thought-provoking commentary on the issue of global warming. A deftly-crafted novel, in true Crichton style, State of Fear is an exciting, stunning tale that not only entertains and educates, but will make you think.

Praying Medic’s post, apparently taken from a 4-chan type board:

“You are what ‘they’ refer to as the ‘useful idiots’.”

_________

So begin with belittling your target. That’s fine to start, but there better be substance.

And there never is 😂

.

“Cryptocurrency is the biggest psyop in human history.”

__________

Naked assertion without substantiation.

.

“They knew that people would eventually fear inflation and abandon fiat money, so they created an ‘alternative’ that would help absorb the capital flight, but do nothing to harm the system. That something is crypto.”

__________

Total national debt is around $34 trillion, that doesn’t include unfunded liabilities of course. The crypto market cap is only around $3 trillion, IIRC.

If crypto isn’t a threat to the system, why does the system fight it so hard?

.

“Remember their moto – you’ll own NOTHING and you will be happy.”

________

This would be a great opportunity to destroy Bitcoin with a devastating critique that can withstand credible scrutiny. I won’t be holding my breath though… 😂

.

“Every immaterial fiat dollar you exchange for immaterial crypto is wasted ammunition you could have used to fight the banking cartel.”

__________

Straight boilerplate out of the Goldbug Manual.

.

“They dont [sic] want you to own Gold, Silver, Oil, Farmland etc… they want you to own nothing (crypto, NFT’s) and live in the metaverse.” 

__________

Nobody cares what ‘they’ want. People who do their own research decide for themselves what has value and what doesn’t.

If you want people to value gold and silver more highly, then find a way to fix the problems.

Problems like bullion inflation – millions of tons are mined and produced every year, adding to the supply. If the price ever spikes upward, miners are incentivized to produce even more, bringing the fiat price back down again, as supply outstrips demand.

Problems like even knowing HOW MUCH there even is. How can something whose value is based on scarcity ever be properly or fairly valued, if nobody knows how much of it there is?

Problems like the very real potential for confiscation.

Problems like the outrageous manipulation of the spot markets.

When you have solved those problems, get back to me, and I’ll give you some more 👍

.

“You are literally further engulfing yourself in the matrix. Unplug yourself and become a commodities chad.”

___________

Commodities are good.

The SEC designated Bitcoin as a commodity.

Michael Saylor put himself and his entire company on the line by buying 214,000+ Bitcoin (and counting). That’s over $13 billion at current value.

What did this anonymous poster put on the line, besides a cheap ad for bullion dealers?

Why not come out of the shadows and have a debate with Michael Saylor? He’s an easy man to find. He gives interviews all the time, even to people with youtube channels 👍

Yes. I wish we had property w/ that capacity to have multiple households & relative food independence. 3 of my four kids live in our city so we have the ability to have a strong family presence in our neighborhood & help each other out as needed. & my parents are less than 10 miles away so we can get to them relatively easily if needed 🙂 Incidentally, we’re celebrating their 62nd anniversary this weekend!

TY KBK  😍  They are so blessed. & all of the close friends they have, “The New Years Eve Gang” & Prayer Group all have similarly intact marriages (or widowhood). I was blessed to be surrounded by so many vibrant marriages.

My husband is the Only one in his family to have never divorced, going back 4 generations! Christ is our Rock, making All the difference  😇 

Both sets of my grandparents were married more than 50 years before one spouse died. My dad’s mom’s parents, who I knew in my very early life, were married at least 60 years too! God has been so good to us!

“Land, buildings, tangibles. If you actually have lots of money and need to park it in something.”

______________

Those could be good, or not.

How much do you allocate to land? Does it just sit there and you hope it appreciates over time? What if it doesn’t?

If the land isn’t bringing in any income, but it has management and tax costs, and you are in an inflationary environment with a currency that is being debased, are you hoping to break even at some future point, or just to slow the melting ice cube?

What about buildings?

Commercial real estate is the next looming crisis. They require upkeep, insurance, subject to lawsuits from tenants, regulatory compliance, and on and on.

More people than ever are working from home. Covid changed the whole concept of working from an office, and a lot of people don’t have any interest in going back to the old routine.

That fact is causing serious problems in the commercial real estate market.

What about tangibles?

Collectibles are tangibles, but how liquid are they, and what sort of ROI can be expected in an environment of high economic stress (which looks like the scenario for the foreseeable future)?

What about gold and silver? I got roped into the whole precious metals argument back around 2014 and bought some silver. What a nightmare. Following the unending stream of excuses for why silver never goes anywhere is more exhausting than keeping up with DJT being the real shadow president and everything we see is just a ‘movie’ for our entertainment.

Gold has done a little better, but when you divide gold by M2 money supply and account for inflation, it has lost purchasing power. Gold is also expensive, you have to buy in 1oz increments in order to not pay ridiculous premiums over spot.

In an environment with a real inflation rate of around 20% for things that matter (food, rent, insurance, utilities, etc., the stuff the gov’t finds a way to exclude in their bogus stats), what do you do in order to keep up with inflation?

If cash is a melting ice cube that is evaporating at 20% per year, compounded annually, you need to find investments that return at least that much per year, just to break even (maintain your purchasing power).

Will land do that?

Will buildings do that?

Will ‘tangibles’ do that?

Maybe yes, maybe no. What is the track record of each, over the past 5 years, 10 years, etc.?

Whatever the track record is, compare it to Bitcoin.

Nobody has to ‘believe’ in Bitcoin, but they can’t argue with the ROI, it’s a fact that anyone can look up, 24/7.

With Bitcoin compounding at something like 40% annually, that is an extraordinary return on investment, in an economic environment where the gov’t has screwed us so badly that extraordinary returns are the only possibility to stay ahead of inflation and debasement.

This is exactly what drove Michael Saylor to consider Bitcoin.

His company, MicroStrategy, was cash rich. In 2020 he recognized that inflation and debasement of the currency was eating at his company’s cash treasury at around 20% per year (same as everyone else’s).

What could he do to stop the hemorrhaging?

He’s an MIT graduate, fwiw. He’s not an idiot, he’s not some yahoo like me, he’s actually a very intelligent person with a very successful business.

He considered buying property. In addition to not being very liquid (apparently it takes about 6 months to sell commercial property), it has all of the other risks (and more) that I mentioned above.

He considered the stock market. The S&P 500 returns about 14% per year, but with inflation / debasement amounting to around 20% per year, that’s still losing around 6%. And if you sell anything (to pay bills, for example), you have to pay capital gains tax, so you need more like 25% ROI to end up with 20%, to break even with inflation, after paying capital gains tax.

He looked at gold. Gold’s purchasing power is melting slower than fiat currency, but it’s still melting. It’s also a very opaque market, nobody knows how much gold there really is, which is pretty extraordinary, considering that the value proposition of gold is its scarcity. How scarce is it? Nobody knows, because nobody knows how much of it there really is! 😂

He looked at other options too.

Then he looked at Bitcoin.

His attitude was like most people here, and like mine was too, for years. But he looked at it harder, because he had a real problem that he needed to solve. If he couldn’t find a way to preserve his company’s capital, then he might as well just give it back to the shareholders, so they could spend it before it lost more value.

Being the CEO and founder of successful company, he also had the resources to hire experts to research Bitcoin, in addition to his own research and access to a broad spectrum of wealthy and successful people who would take his calls.

After a LOT of due diligence, it was Bitcoin that solved the problem and mitigated or eliminated the problems all the other options presented.

He’s a lot smarter than I am, and a lot more successful too. That doesn’t necessarily mean he’s right, but it does mean that he knows more about the subject than most people, because he has over $13 billion riding on it.

And he is a very rational person who is able to articulate his thoughts in a clear and coherent manner, for anyone who is willing to listen.

The psychological barrier erected toward anything ‘new’ is a real and powerful thing to try to overcome. Look at how most people scoffed at the Internet, made fun of the idea that anyone would ever transact business ‘online’, and then danced on the Internet’s grave during the dot.com bust.

Nobody scoffs at the Internet now, because it’s an integral part of modern reality.

Bitcoin is the same.

In the early years, lots of people (including myself) ignored Bitcoin, and Bitcoin grew. More years passed, and lots of people (including myself) laughed at Bitcoin. And Bitcoin grew more.

More years passed, and Bitcoin grew enough that it was subject to attack from everyone who had a stake in the status quo. That attack continued unabated, pretty much until January 11th of 2024, when Bitcoin officially became the 11th major asset class, with multiple Bitcoin ETFs trading on the major stock exchanges.

There is not much I can do to help anyone overcome the psychological resistance to new things, or their (often) hostility toward the same. I recognize it is a psychological issue, and I recognize my inability to do much about it.

Bitcoin doesn’t care.

It just keeps getting bigger, because it solves a problem that everyone on the planet has, in a way that nothing else (so far) solves better.

Eventually everyone will come around, just like they did with the Internet.

The only question is how high will the value of Bitcoin be, when the light bulb finally goes on and the penny finally drops.

It was probably around $100 when I first really heard about it. I blew it off. It was a few thousand dollars more a couple years later when a friend recommended I look into it. I blew it off.

In 2021, when it got to around $50k, and covid was in full swing, the country had been taken over in a bloodless coup and the markets were likely to blow up as soon as people woke up to the coup and covid (they never did), circumstances forced me to spend more than ten minutes investigating Bitcoin.

I approached it the same way I do everything else, I attacked it. I read about it, I watched videos by knowledgeable people. I watched debates between famous gold bugs and Bitcoin proponents (e.g., Frank Guistra vs Michael Saylor).

I looked for all the holes in the arguments, to defeat them. After a while, it slowly began to dawn on me that I couldn’t defeat the arguments, at least not most of them.

As that happened, my perception began to change. I couldn’t just continue to irrationally oppose something, if I didn’t really have good reasons to oppose it. Knowledge and understanding began to overcome the psychological barrier.

So it’s a process.

But the process doesn’t start, until we take enough time to actually look at it and investigate.

Bitcoin regularly reminds me of this well known expression:

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”

“VSG replied, “I own stuff.” ”

__________

Owning stuff is great, but how many people can afford the down payment and mortgage on a NYC skyscraper — either to buy one or build one?

Billionaires are in a whole different situation than those who are not billionaires.

What is the ROI on various ‘stuff’?

What is the political risk of owning property (real estate) in a particular place? Will it still be a place people want to live ten years from now? What about the tax environment and regulatory environment?

Since covid, most commercial property has tanked in value, and with interest rates being exponentially higher than when most commercial property loans were taken, they can’t refinance. The property value doesn’t support the needed loan amount, and at the higher interest rate, the property doesn’t cash flow.

Covid was a totally unforeseeable risk.

There is a whole matrix of such questions to evaluate on a case by case basis.

I’m certainly not opposed to gold or silver (or property) at all.

Just saying they do have limitations and caveats, like everything else 👍

Bought a dozen resistors at 10 cents each, and a few M-F VGA dongles @ $2 each. I can make compact monitor simulators for about $2.80 — I’m wondering if hot glue or fingernail polish would be a good non-conductive way to stabilize them.

But as I was poking around, I found my box of capacitors.

While I was at the parts place — https://anchor-electronics.com/ — I couldn’t help but reflect on the days when Silicon Valley once was paved with ’em. Now they’re all gone.

cthulhu

One of the classic Silicon Valley stories had Steve Wozniak shopping at Quement Electronics on Bascom Avenue. He was building the original Apple (the first commercial product was the Apple II) and he was looking for a microprocessor. The hot one in those days was the Z80 — made by Zilog, a local company, as a hot-rodded version of the Intel 8080…..but he was a quarter short of being able to afford it. So he got a Motorola 6502 instead.

Picked cherries off of Bascom one summer. Quite close to Del Mar High, IIRC. Dang that was a long time ago. Somewhere around 69/70, I’d guess. Back when the roads were safer to ride bicycles.

Valerie Curren

Funny, but cherries grow in certain parts of Northern Michigan, like around Traverse City. We were there for a cherry festival one year. A cousin had a cherry farm N of TC. Apparently one year he had a bumper crop but so did everybody else. He paid big money to store it for the year in a gamble to keep the farm afloat. The next year some situation destroyed most of the cherry crop so he made a killing on his stored cherries. However had things gone the other direction he might have lost the farm. Hard to imagine living between such extremes. & wild to think CA & MI could do well with the same produce!

The city of Baltimore is going to sell all of the abandoned properties for $1 each to help lower income residents with homeownership. Unfortunately, there’s a catch; you must have $90,000 in your bank account to put towards the house renovations. No low income people in Baltimore will have that kind of money, but you know who will? All of the corporations who are about to own the city of Baltimore. Democrats have once again found a way to screw the poor and help the rich. America is broken!

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.

“I agree with Praying Medic about crypto. I can’t believe how many people have fallen for it.”

_______________

Well, think about it.

Larry Fink (CEO of Blackrock) fell for it. So did Elon Musk and Cathy Wood (CEO of ArkInvest, one of the new Bitcoin ETFs). Jack Dorsey fell for it. So did Mike Tyson, and if anybody scams him, he’ll kill ’em 😁

The management teams behind all of the recently approved Bitcoin ETFs fell for it. Michael Saylor fell for it. Max Keiser fell for it. Robert Breedlove fell for it.

Adam Back fell for it. Mark Yusko fell for it too.

Jason Lowry fell for it. He is a MIT National Defense Fellow and member of the United States Space Force, and author of “Softwar: A Novel Theory on Power Projection and the National Strategic Significance of Bitcoin” Here is his 15 minute Ted Talk, posted on Robert Breedlove’s channel (I haven’t watched this one yet, I just found it).

Lawrence Lepard (precious metals investor) fell for it. All the people running multi-billion dollar publicly traded Bitcoin mining companies fell for it. Tech billionaire Tim Draper fell for it.

Nayib Bukele, President of El Salvador, fell for it. The IMF tried to give him a loan and make El Salvador one of their debt slaves, on condition that Bukele outlaw Bitcoin in El Salvador. But Bukele told IMF to take their debt slavery fiat and stick it where the sun don’t shine.

Brian Armstrong, CEO of Coinbase, fell for it. So did Mike Novogratz. Billionaire Paul Tudor Jones fell for it, too.

Billionaire Bill Miller and billionaire Stanley Drunkenmiller both fell for it.

Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, fell for it. So did Tim Cook (CEO of Apple). Peter Thiel fell for it too.

Robert Kennedy Jr. fell for it.

Donald and Melania Trump fell for it. They both have their own line of crypto NFTs. Wolf Moon bought one.

These people (and many, many others) are all much smarter and more successful than I am, so I don’t know if they’re right. I did my own research, which included considering the arguments and positions of several of the people mentioned above.

.

There are also some public figures who haven’t fallen for it.

Jamie Dimon (he argues against it, but his company, JP Morgan, is an authorized participant for the Blackrock Bitcoin ETF and JPMorgan Bank became the first major U.S. bank to offer Bitcoin access to their clients, so Jamie is clearly conflicted). Jamie famously threatened to fire anyone who worked for him who owned Bitcoin, but then it was revealed that his own daughter invests in Bitcoin 😂

Charlie Munger (he’s dead now, but he still argues loudly from the grave)

Warren Buffett (but he hasn’t really had a new idea since he invested in Apple, in 2016, long after the iPhone was already a giant moneymaker)

Bill Gates hates Bitcoin. He must have a serious undisclosed conflict of interest.

Jim Cramer, MSLSD (accidental creator of the Inverse Cramer rule) doesn’t like Bitcoin. Let that sink in… 😁

Peter Schiff hates Bitcoin. But he makes his money selling gold to people 😂

.

The people who did ‘fall’ for it spent the time and effort to learn about it, to understand it, both individually and in the context of other asset classes, and reached a different conclusion based on facts and reason.

Have you done the same?

Can you honestly say you have put the time and effort into understanding it, to get answers to your own good questions about it?

Well, paying attention to Fat Billy is national torture so there’s that.

para59r

Fat Billy was pouting about how Fentanyl Deaths in one year are the equivalent to the highest yearly death toll during WWII. As if he had nothing to do with directly contributing to that through his treasonous conduct.

Not sure if that part is in the GWP story, haven’t read it, but it came from the same interview.

bakocarl

U.S. fentanyl overdose deaths are now approximately equal to:
The all cause* U.S. deaths from World War I (116,516)
Triple the all cause* U.S. deaths from the Korean War (36,574)
Double the all cause* U.S. deaths from the Vietnam War (58,220)
*All cause = combat deaths and deaths from bombing, massacres, disease, suicide, and murder.

mollypitcher5

I don’t know the stats on ages of fentanyl deaths but I’m certain that the majority would be under 40 yrs. That’s a huge number of the next generation either dying or if they manage to stay alive are for all intent and purpose broken people.
Also that’s only the figures for fentanyl. There are other synthetic drugs from china that are also killing addicts.

If another Biden term is “national suicide,” Billy Boy, then you are responsible for the inaction that allowed said suicide to be on the table in the first place. You could have investigated the 81-million-votes-my-ass nightmare to begin with, and spared us the last four years, you POS.

Thank you for bringing the link to The Gateway Pundit article regarding how the modRNA COVID-19 ‘vaccines” induce cancer growth.

There are AT LEAST THREE INGREDIENTS IN THE PFIZER-BIONTECH modRNA COVID-19 “VACCINES” (INCLUDING THE COMPANY’S “2023-2024 FORMULA COVID-19 VACCINE”) THAT CAN / DOES, INDUCE CANCERS (INCLUDING TURBO-CANCERS) AND/OR RE-ESTABLISH CANCERS THAT WERE IN REMISSION BEFORE THE PERSON GOT “VACCINATED” —

ONE: N1-methyl-pseudouridine (EVADES the “vaccinated” person’s natural immune system “are you a friends or a foe” recognition mechanism.)

TWO: The partial code of the SV40 cancer promoter gene from the African Green Monkey.

THREE: The presence of the dangerous lipid nanoparticles ALC-0159 and ALC-0315, which work in various ways to allow the modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines” to damage / destroy the crucial CD4 – CD8 immune system cells in the “vaccinated” person’s body; AND, to destroy the crucial IgG3 “fight it off” immune system cells, replacing them with more of the IgG4 “tolerate it” cells.

In short, the modRNA Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 “vaccines” — ALL OF THEM — are basically a “one-two-three and you’re out” attack on the “vaccinated” person’s natural immune system. THIS WAS DONE BY DESIGN AND FORETHOUGHT.

Also — the truth about the ingredients of the MODERNA modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines” has just only recently begun to slowly come out. HOWEVER, the Moderna COVID-19 “vaccines” — ALL OF THEM, including the company’s “2023-2024 Formula COVID-19 Vaccine”) contain the dangerous lipid nanoparticle SM-102, which ALSO work in various ways to allow these modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines” to damage / destroy elements and mechanisms of the Moderna “vaccinated” person’s natural immune system. THIS WAS ALSO DONE BY DESIGN AND FORETHOUGHT — AND THE MODERNA modRNA COVID-19 ‘VACCINES” WERE CO-DEVELOPED BETWEEN THAT COMPANY AND FAUCI’S NIAID.

TY for pulling all the info together, which I shared on Gab again 🙂 I wonder if you can reply to this either on the site or in the nofier. Hope all is well with your access…

Yours Truly will try to Reply.

The past part of the URL for The Q Tree post got cut off for some reason.

I can see this message too…

It appears that, after Yours Truly posted her comment today regarding the presence of at least three elements in the Pfizer-BioNTech modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines” that can / will, induce turbo cancer, one can’t post Replies to any of the comments on the board. What’s going on? Is some “entity” doing “censorship” on the site now that our good Wolf Moon is taking time to attend to his health?

Chris Plante’s show is back on-air again after dropping offline for me at all available site links. He had been teasing about Joe suggesting his uncle was eaten by cannibals after a plane crash in New Guinea. Boop, silence ensued.

Just now I rechecked and he’s back. Chris said the UN should be moved to a strangely-named place (Ouagadougou | Burkina Faso, Map, & Facts | Britannica). The NY UN building should be converted to condos. hehehe

I remember writing President Bush explaining that the UN should be defunded. Such a pity he didn’t listen then.

On The Mayorkas Impeachment
Karl Denninger
The Senate appears to have a rather odd view of the Executive — then again so does the House, and both are not only toxic they’re demonstrably false.
“Mayorkas is the first Cabinet secretary to be impeached in almost 150 years. House Republicans voted to impeach Mayorkas in February over his handling of the southern border by a narrow margin after failing to do so on their first try.
Democrats have slammed the impeachment as a political stunt, saying that Republicans had no valid basis for the move and that policy disagreements are not a justification for the rarely used constitutional impeachment of a Cabinet official.”
The impeachment of Mayorkas has nothing to do with “policy disagreements”; it is first, last and only about a Cabinet official’s deliberate refusal to enforce laws as written, including 8 USC §1324.
That statute mandates felony criminal penalties carrying prison sentences for anyone who assists, harbors or transports illegal immigrants. Other sections of US law forbid the Federal Government and its agencies from “paroling” into the United States an illegal immigrant unless that have a facially-reasonable claim to asylum.  There is no capacity in the law to permit DHS to do so simply because there are a lot of people illegally crossing.

Underrated post IMO, knowing the Arky political mafia as I do and all.

Should have been a warning to Americans back then and now. Most just yawned and moved on.

OKeefe has been busy. I got an email today that’s interesting. It is not yet in the Breaking stories on their website (https://okeefemediagroup.com/), but it is mentioned on Facebook and X. At 4 PM, there is an X Spaces event to discuss, so if you do have an X account and have time, you may want to check it out.

On the Inside TODAY: Hidden cameras reveal who is more powerful than the Vice President of the United States.

Click on the space and tune in 4 PM ET today….

https://twitter.com/i/spaces/1BdxYrRWbQYKX

BREAKING: O’Keefe Media Uncovers who is really running the White House. Undercover cameras catch SBA Special Advisor calls former Facebook board member Jeff Zients “the second most powerful person in Washington” where “whatever this guy says, it’s what the President says.” Asked by OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist “is Jeff Zeints more powerful than Kamala,” Robinson confirms “Yeah.” VP Kamala Harris. Robinson also states that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are still involved behind the scenes at the White House.

Tyler Robinson, Special Advisor to the Chief of Staff of Administrator @SBAIsabel

Guzman, details how @WhiteHouse

directs @SBAIsabel

Guzman to campaign for @POTUS

so constantly that “[Guzman] is the most traveled member of the cabinet. Like pretty much every week.” Under the guise of talking to small business owners, Guzman travels across the country to help elect Democrats – especially swing state Democrats like @SenatorTester

: “The White House was like, yes, go. Invite Senator Tester. Don’t invite the other Senator because he’s a Republican. And don’t invite the two members of Congress because they’re Republicans.” Such actions may be considered potential violations of the Hatch Act, which restricts federal employees from taking an active part in partisan political management and forbids them from campaigning for or against candidates.

Robinson says Guzman acts “as a spokesperson for Biden” as “…we try to visit with a member of Congress if they’re a Democrat…Just because then we can help them get re-elected as well.” @US_OSC

The crap has to end. Do not comply. Do not endorse. Do not participate in the mutilated pronoun farce. Mental disorder on the part of another does not require your endorsement or participation and certainly not your encouragement.

TheseTruths

I agree with the points, but IMO this is weird:

 Millions of years of evolution have made men stronger, faster and bigger than women. That’s just a fact. 

To accept that on its face, you have to believe that at some point in time (in the beginning?), men and women were equal in terms of size and strength, but over time men evolved into bigger and stronger beings, while women didn’t. I’ve never heard that theory before.

/1🚨BREAKING — While President Trump is being prosecuted for possessing Presidential records, our investigation revealed that Biden’s CDC illegally deletes employees’ emails after they leave the agency.
We just sued HHS and NARA for violating the Federal Records Act…
THREAD:
/2 On March 29, 2023, AFL sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General, requesting an investigation of the CDC’s unlawful policy of deleting employee emails.
/3 AFL requested records regarding the CDC’s support for teacher-led indoctrination of children with radical gender ideology.
/4 Federal law requires that each agency “make and preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency and designed to furnish the information necessary to protect the legal and financial rights of the Government and of persons directly affected by the agency’s activities.”
/5 Yet, in a routine email regarding the disclosure of these records, the CDC told AFL that the CDC routinely deletes the emails of nearly all of its employees thirty days after they leave the agency:
/6 NARA investigated the allegations but determined that because the “CDC instructs individual email account holders to apply retention based on the email’s content value and its applicability to a NARA-approved records schedule,” NARA considered the matter closed.
/7 In short, NARA appears to entrust individual CDC employees to decide which emails can be automatically deleted.
/8🚨This is patently inconsistent with the law.
/9 Moreover, if the federal government wants to unlawfully assert that anytime a government employee leaves an agency their records are no longer considered records of the United States, then the same assumption would apply to former Presidents of the United States.
/10 According to this logic, Special Counsel Jack Smith’s prosecution of President Trump over Presidential records would be voided null as the records in question would effectively no longer be considered records of the United States upon the end of the Trump presidency.
/11 It cannot be that a career bureaucrat at the CDC, or any government agency, has more say than a former President — and yet, under the Biden Administration, this appears to be the case.
/12 Notably, in one case involving the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), former FBI agent Scott Payne intentionally removed official records from the FBI’s custody. According to press reports cited by NARA, “Sitting in the crates [Mr. Payne] brought home when he retired are the field notes and transcripts of every case he’s worked.”
/13 NARA did not refer Mr. Payne to the Department of Justice (DOJ) for investigation. Instead, it permitted the FBI to “retriev[e] 99 discs from the former employee’s residence, documented that the former employee affirmed that he does not possess any hard copy documents and that the discs are the ‘totality of government records and information in his possession.’”
/14 A former FBI agent who intentionally removed sensitive law enforcement records from a federal agency and held those records for several years is not referred for investigation nor prosecuted…
/15 Yet, President Trump — who transferred records he believed to be personal records or non-records to his home — was referred to the DOJ for investigation by NARA without authority
/16 And, of course — aside from the illegality of systematically deleting these records— what is the CDC trying to hide?
Why does it have a records deletion process that entrusts individual bureaucrats to decide what are official records and what are
/17 America First Legal will continue to relentlessly fight the government’s partisan two-tiered system of justice.

Why is There NO Record of Ancient Humans? – Randall Carlson

para59r

We are seeing more and more serious scholars going off in this direction after an hiatus of almost 150 years, or at least till back when William F Warren wrote “Paradise Found” in 1885. A rather scholarly book that Amazon claims is written by Robert Louis Stevenson, which of course it wasn’t, they just want you to think it’s ideas are ludicrous. It has an extensive and detailed bibliography of over 40 pages that supports his serious 405 page thesis.

When Bal Gangadhar Tilak wrote “Arctic Home for the Vedas” back 1898 (He wrote “Orion in 1856 before Warren but it didn’t go as far as the claims in “Arctic Home”) and published it 1903 he borrowed heavily from Warren’s work in establishing an antiquity for both the Veda’s and the Avesta going back over 10,000 BP where he demonstrates with much more than just Warren’s research, that the Arctic circle was inhabitable all the way back to 8,000 BC and likely longer before that.

Another thing shown quite amazingly is how quickly people had forgotten their own past as he demonstrates such with the 9th Century AD, Sanyana who had collected up all the old Vedic era writings (to which he is credited with saving the Veda’s for posterity) in an effort to stave off Shaivism which was gaining popularity at the time, in favor or the old time ritualism that is part of Brahmanism. Sanyana himself relied heavily upon Yaksa, 7th-5th BC sanskrit grammarian. Neither of the two understood the full meaning behind much of the ancient Sanskrit especially where it describes the old home of the ancient Aryans being at or near to the North Pole as neither had a concept of the North Pole at the time and Tilak’s books were largely about getting all that stuff straightened out.

Now what all that points out, is that the red part of the man’s graph can be notched one more mark to the left as far as written history is concerned. Meaning we have written description of not just 3,500BC, but can take it back at least as far as 8,000BC. For that though we don’t get any views of ancient civilizations, but instead a glimpse at a very rustic lifestyle yet with the knowledge that man once lived with in the Arctic Circle and all else remains conjecture and if there was something more to past civilizations then the Ancient Aryans and Zoroastrians had forgotten it too.

As to more conjecture… these two vids are rather hard to explain and one is forced off of more tenable grounds to do so. The people who put these vids out, make others, some a bit too fantastik but these are supported with enough fact to be taken serious even if one can not explain the how of it.

This is very interesting. However if his starting point date of roughly 150,000 BC is in error his timeline would/could be off significantly. I tend toward a young earth creationist/intelligent design view so would see the timeline of mankind as Very Much shorter than what he purports.
