On this day and every day –

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


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

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

Psalm 23 is a beautiful poem that uses the image of God as shepherd. David, who penned this psalm, had been a shepherd himself and understood the parallel between the task of a shepherd caring for his sheep and of God caring for His people. Sheep are totally dependent on the shepherd for food, water, leadership, and guidance as they move from place to place, just as we are dependent upon God for all that we need. Sheep depend on the shepherd for protection from a wide range of predators and dangers, just as we look to God as our Protector and Defender. In the New Testament, Jesus reveals Himself to be the Good Shepherd of His people (John 10:11, 14), fulfilling the Old Testament prophecy that God would come to shepherd His people (Ezekiel 34:7–16, 23).

Psalm 23:4, addressing the Lord Shepherd, says, “Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” David bases this description on the practices of shepherds in his day. Shepherds of the time commonly carried a rod and staff as essential to their work.

The rod mentioned in Psalm 23 is a symbol of the Lord’s strength and protection. The rod was a sturdy wooden stick used as a weapon to fight off wild animals who might have hoped to make an easy meal out of an otherwise defenseless flock of sheep. The shepherd also used the rod to help him keep count of the sheep within the flock (as alluded to in Leviticus 27:32). Young David recounted an incident to King Saul in which he probably used his shepherd’s rod: “Your servant has been keeping his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and carried off a sheep from the flock, I went after it, struck it and rescued the sheep from its mouth. When it turned on me, I seized it by its hair, struck it and killed it” (1 Samuel 17:34–35).

The staff mentioned in Psalm 23 is a symbol of the Lord’s guidance and lovingkindness. The staff was a long, slender stick, often hooked at the tip, used primarily to direct the flock. Sheep are notorious wanderers, and once away from the shepherd’s watchful eye, they get into all sorts of trouble (Matthew 18:12–14). The shepherd used his staff to keep his sheep out of danger and close to himself. If a sheep became trapped in a precarious position, the shepherd would loop the curved end of the staff around the neck of the sheep and retrieve it back to safety.

W. Philip Keller, in his book A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23, comments on the uniqueness of the shepherd’s staff: “In a sense, the staff, more than any other item of his personal equipment, identifies the shepherd as a shepherd. No one in any other profession carries a shepherd’s staff. It is uniquely an instrument used for the care and management of sheep—and only sheep. It will not do for cattle, horses or hogs. It is designed, shaped and adapted especially to the needs of sheep” (from chapter 8).

Together, the rod and staff of Psalm 23 paint a picture of the divine Shepherd who wields them. He is strong, competent, and trustworthy; He is present with His sheep, able to defend them and watch over them through all the dangers they face. Knowing that we have such a Shepherd who is ready to protect us from danger, keep us close, and rescue us when we go astray truly is a great comfort to us, the sheep.

Bush, DeSantis Lawyer Charlie Spies FIRED By Trump From Top RNC Role.

Republican National Committee’s chief counsel, Charlie Spies, has parted ways with the organization only months after taking on the role. The National Pulse was first to point out Spies’s links to Jeb Bush, Ron DeSantis, and Marc Elias.Spies was fired on President Trump’s orders in recent weeks, The National Pulse understands.

Spies did not respond immediately to a request for comment on Saturday night. Spies joined the RNC during their leadership overhaul earlier this year, and he was engaged to guide the committee’s legal strategy. Former President Donald Trump had endorsed Michael Whatley, altering the composition of the organization significantly.His work history includes key roles within the GOP, including working with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis. As an advocate for super PACs, Spies was instrumental in setting up Right to Rise, the super PAC that gave Jeb Bush strategic advantage during the 2016 elections. Furthermore, Spies challenged the Trump Organization with a formal complaint during his time at the super PAC.

Trump has indicated he would no longer be Mr. Nice Guy and that he would fire people this time around instead of accepting letters of resignation. 👍🏼

“Republican National Committee’s chief counsel, Charlie Spies, has parted ways with the organization only months after taking on the role. The National Pulse was first to point out Spies’s links to Jeb Bush, Ron DeSantis, and Marc Elias.”

_______

So he has ties to Jeb (please clap) Bush, Rhonda Santis and Marc Elias.

And his last name is “Spies”.

How many clues is too many?

Lara Trump runs the RNC, not the state GOP in Georgia. Also, the GOP is not the RNC. They are two separate entities. The GOP party leadership will never be Maga.

So STATE OF GEORGIA GOP…. makes you go HMMMMmmmm

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

WOW. It’s all WOW.

Marc Elias is one of the greatest threats to America, democracy, our Constitution, and even HUMANITY itself. Why? He hates TRUTH with a passion. He will tell any lie and hide any truth to do what he wills. That anybody has ties to such a man – HORRORS.

Gail Combs

I really hope Elias gets taken off the Chess board and SOON. He single handedly TRASHED the Trump presidency.

Feb 2021 No shame: Democrat lawyer Marc Elias claims FAULTY voting machines marred New York congressional race result

Marc Elias, the election lawyer who represented Democratic challenges to state rules throughout the 2020 election, alleged in a court filing this week that a close congressional race in upstate New York was marred by faulty voting machines.

Republicans have been vilified for making similar claims about the 2020 presidential race….

Citing alleged discrepancies between votes counted by hand and votes counted by ballot machines, Elias argued that the error rate, extrapolated across the entire district, could mean that thousands of votes were improperly counted by the machines.

He also complained about procedural faults with the conduct of the voting process, alleging failures to comply with New York State election law…

In addition, as Breitbart News has noted, “Elias was responsible for hiring opposition research firm Fusion GPS, on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee, [which produced] the fraudulent “Russia dossier” on then-candidate Donald Trump in 2016.”

And more:

4 Facts to Know About Top Democrat Lawyer Marc Eliasdailysignal.com — 2021/11/01

Lawyer Marc Elias has in some ways been the Democrats’ Forrest Gump of election controversies, showing up in the most high profile election cases of the past two decades. 

Elias’ involvement spans the improbable Senate victory of comedian Al Franken in 2008 to litigation both before and after the 2020 election…

Here are four things to know about Elias, 52, and his role as a top election lawyer for Democrats. 

1. Flipping Elections, or Trying to Do So

Elias helped turn a few Democrats who appeared to have lost on election night into winners. 

He was not part of the legal fight over Florida’s electoral votes in the disputed 2000 presidential election. But Elias was busy that year on the team that represented Democrat Maria Cantwell in her defeat of incumbent Sen. Slade Gorton, a Republican, in Washington state. Out of nearly 2.5 million votes cast, Cantwell emerged the winner with 2,200 votes….

The biography of Elias on the website of the Perkins Coie law firm boasts that the Coleman-Franken race was “the largest recount and contest in American history.”

With almost 3 million votes cast, Franken trailed Coleman by 725 votes after Election Day. But after the first canvass, the incumbent’s lead was slashed to little more than 200 votes. 

The recount dragged on for six months before the final tally showed Franken squeaking by with 312 votes.

In 2010, the conservative group Minnesota Majority released an 18-month study that found at least 341 felons voted illegally in the Coleman-Franken contest, enough to have made the difference.

Most of those votes by felons were cast in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region, according to the study….

2. Role in ‘Russia Collusion’ Narrative

Elias represented Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016 and was responsible for hiring the opposition research firm that would prompt the narrative that Donald Trump’s campaign conspired with the Russian government to win the 2016 election….

  :wpds_arrow: 3. Mail-In Voting Lawsuits

👉In 2020, Elias led lawsuits around the country to change state laws to allow for expanding mail-in and absentee voting, and to allow the controversial practice of ballot harvesting, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

👉By April of last year, the lawyer had filed more than 20 lawsuits in 14 states and vowed to double that by the end of the election cycle, NPR reported

Ellias is the founder of Democracy Docket, a website devoted to election litigation. 

He began the 2020 election cycle as general counsel for Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign. He ended the year as lead counsel for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign, fending off dozens of lawsuits from the Trump campaign after the election.

4. Federal Court Sanction

In March, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals sanctioned Elias and other lawyers with the Washington-based law firm of Perkins Coie for filing a “redundant and misleading” motion in a case over a Texas law that scrapped straight-ticket voting. 

A panel of 5th Circuit judges determined that a motion in the case was “nearly identical” to a motion filed… “failed to notify the court that their previous and nearly identical motion was denied,” and that the “inexplicable failure” violated “their duty of candor to the court.”….

Mark Elias showed up in CA and the Konnech Case gets tossed. The computers then head for Asia.

April 20, 2021 DAILY KOS Marc Elias: GOP has surrendered trying to win a majority of the vote. We talk to him on The Brief

Remember after the election, the case after case after case that Republicans lost, leading to tweets like “Republicans are now 1-50 in election challenges”? The man behind those legal efforts was Mark Elias, founder of Democracy Docket—an organization focused on information and advocacy about voting rights, elections, redistricting and democracy.

Robert Baker

Two observations about this guy.

  1. It says a lot about the man’s character that he would accept the job when offered. It doesn’t take a great imagination to speculate on his purpose.
  2. The DNC lost its gateway into the RNC strategy for the 2024 campaign. I assume they have backups.
PAVACA

How did this Charlie Spies guy get anywhere NEAR the “new RNC” in the first place? Who “recommended” Spies to Lara Trump and Michael Whatley? Didn’t they vet this DNC / DeepState / “HRC camp” plant?

Exactly. Did RINO McDANIEL recommend him? I mean, c’mon!!!

Trump Campaign Files First 2024 Election Lawsuit, Demands Ban on Counting of Mail-In Ballots After Election Day

The Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) have filed their first election integrity lawsuit of the 2024 presidential election.

Following the massive voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election that rigged the election in favor of Joe Biden, the lawsuit is seeking to block the counting of mail-in ballots received after election day.

“Dilution of honest votes, to any degree, by the casting of fraudulent or illegitimate votes violates the right to vote,” the lawsuit states. “By holding voting open beyond the federal Election Day, Nevada violates federal law and harms plaintiffs.”

“Counting mail ballots received after Election Day doesn’t just dilute the valid ballots—it specifically and disproportionately harms Republican candidates and voters,” it continues. “These harms are irreparable.”

The lawsuit is a response to legislation passed by Nevada’s Democratic-controlled legislature back in 2021, which allows the tallying of mail ballots received up to four days after Election Day so long as the envelopes are postmarked before the end of the day.

“Nevada’s ballot receipt deadline clearly violates federal law and undermines election integrity in the state,” RNC Chairman Michael Whatley said in a statement. “Ballots received days after Election Day should not be counted.”

Nineteen U.S. allow the counting of mail-in ballots received after Election Day. The laws claim they allow more voters to participate, although they are commonly used as a way of giving Democratic operatives enough time to “find” the necessary votes to ensure victory.

Why We Vote during several different episodes has had several people on talking about the various findings and lawsuits and complaits to State Legislatures.

I hesitated to bring this one because the guy (Kevin Moncla) is a convicted voyeur — We KNOW about our crooked Just-Us system, so that maybe Lawfare and not truth but he has gotten dinged several times…

Example:

I believe everything he saying. Only problem is, he credibility is very damaged. This dude filmed people in the bathroom and was convicted of video voyeurism in Florida. He has been arrested for fraud as well of possession of narcotics. He may mean well, but he doesn’t help the cause.

Anyway: at 9:04 is the official complaint (AZ)

https://rumble.com/v4szbk8-why-we-vote-ep-75-730-pm-et-.html

pgroup2

I don’t have a lot of hope in this legal theory.

If mail-in ballots must be received by election day close-of-business, then the mail-in voter is under an extra burden of having to determine when the ballot must be mailed in order to be sure it arrives on time. Because this amount of time varies due to circumstances not under the voter’s control, the law has an unequal effect among voters similarly situated [14th amendment violation].

Compare the proposed result with IRS returns. There, your taxes are on time if postmarked 4/15 or earlier. Matters not when the IRS receives them.

Good enough for taxes but not for voting? Pull my other finger.

Maybe Spies came up with this idea and that’s why he got shitcanned.

Valerie Curren

Postmarked by voting day & then counted only if received within 4-7 days perhaps? In a close election &/or recount, mailed in returns would be checked for postmarks & any valid mailed vote that hadn’t already been counted would be included in recount.

pgroup2

I’d need to see the actual complaint in order to assess your comment. But it sounds as if another problem would still be in play – the difference between mail-in ballots and polling place voting. There can be differences between the two types but they better be minor AND ALSO not make it more difficult for one type of voter compared to another.

Gail Combs

It would also depend on the TYPE of mail-in voting.

ALL voting is mail-in

No excuse mail-in

EXCUSE needed mail-in

It would also depend on if the State sends out mail-in voting ballots en masse AND WHEN.

Early voting by state
Here are examples:

Illinois 40 days before Election Day.

Indiana 28 days before Election Day.

Arizona 27 days before Election Day.

Arkansas 15 days before Election Day for the preferential primary and general election; 7 days before Election Day for all other elections 

California 29 days before Election Day. Varies by county. 

Delaware At least 10 days before Election Day.

Kentucky 5 days before Election Day.

pat frederick

but when do you receive your ballot? with a mail in ballot, you also have a lot more time to cast your vote than a person who votes on election day. An in person voter only has HOURS to vote. a mail in voter should HAVE TO take care to mail it within the allotted time to arrive on time.

Postal voting in the United States – Wikipedia

March 10, 2024 – Blue shift is an observed phenomenon … 

one database finding absentee-ballot fraud to be the most prevalent type of election fraud, comprising about 24% of 491 reported prosecutions between 2000 and 2012.[12] Processing large numbers of ballots and signature verifications accurately has numerous challenges other than fraud….

 Some jurisdictions use one envelope or privacy sleeve inside an outer envelope, for privacy. The envelope containing the ballot is then either mailed, or dropped off at a local ballot collection center….

👉The deadline is determined by state law.[36] In some jurisdictions, postmarks are not counted, and ballots must be received by a certain time on election day. In other jurisdictions, a ballot must have a postmark on or before the day of the election and be received prior to the date of certification. Many vote-by-mail jurisdictions enlist the help of volunteers to take ballots in walk-up drop off booths or drive-up quick drop locations…

pgroup2

No offense but you missed the crucial part of my comment.

I said that mail-in voting would hold the voter responsible for the ballot arriving on election day even though said voter had no control over the ballot arrival time [it’s up to USPS].

The better argument is a security argument – mail-in voting breaks the chain of custody of the voted ballot. IOW, USPS is being used as a giant ballot harvesting operation. USPS employees, as noble as they might be, are not govt election employees and are not subject to election policies/procedures.

Ballots, once marked by voters, should be handed to a govt election worker and should NEVER leave the custody and control of election officers.

Gail Combs

Bingo!!!

Thanks for re-directing our thoughts.

pat frederick

thanks pgroup!

Gail Combs

“… a mail in voter should HAVE TO take care to mail it within the allotted time to arrive on time…”

OR just drop it off.

Here are your in-person ballot return options for General Elections.

All states allow postal return and commercial courier delivery, but if you can drop your ballot off in person at your Local Election Office or Dropbox Location – that is a good option, too!

For election office addresses and contact details, check the Election Official Directory. For Drop Box location listings, check the State Voting Requirements / State Lookup Tools section for your state.

[Going down the list]

MS Ballot Drop Off- You must return your ballot by mail (USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc.).

TN Ballot Drop OffYou must return your ballot by mail (USPS, FedEx, UPS, etc.).

Those two states have excuse required mail in voting.

Gail Combs

OH, and you can do a RETURN RECEIPT REQUESTED.

What is a Return Receipt Requested?
A Return Receipt Requested is a service offered by the United States Postal Service (USPS) that provides a confirmation of delivery for a mail piece. When a sender requests a Return Receipt, the recipient is required to sign a receipt upon delivery, which is then returned to the sender.

pat frederick

thanks Gail!

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

And yet that is the law in Colorado. Ballots must be received by election day.

You can drop them off up until 7 or 8 pm (don’t recall which) on election day.

Texas AG Ken Paxton Goes Off After Austin Declares Itself a Sanctuary City for ‘Gender-Affirming Care’

In a move that sets up a state-level battle, the Austin City Council voted on Thursday to become a sanctuary city for “gender-affirming care” for minors. The resolution proclaimed that state laws banning “gender-affirming care” for children will not be enforced. 

That came after emotional testimony from detransitioners explaining how damaging it is to mutilate children in the name of transgender ideology. The council wasn’t phased, instead choosing to protect sex change surgeries, hormone regiments, and puberty blockers for kids, all of which permanently harm, in the name of “transitioning.”

AUSTIN, Texas (CN) — The Austin City Council on Thursday approved a resolution declining enforcement of the state’s laws banning physicians from providing gender-affirming surgeries and medications to minors — the first city in the state to do so. 

The resolution’s lead sponsor, Councilmember José “Chito” Vela, said that he hopes his office’s “transgender protection resolution” will offer some comfort to the transgender and non-binary community in Austin. 

That this continues to even be an argument is astonishing, and it’s truly a testament to how far society has fallen. European countries are going in the opposite directionafter decades of entertaining these harmful “treatments,” restricting them for kids. Meanwhile, American politicians, backed by the transgender lobby and a self-serving medical establishment, are charging full steam ahead. 

There is a profit motive at play and an ideological one. Some cynical doctors see this as a new cash cow while members of the transgender movement see it as an affirmation of their own delusions. Stuck being used as pawns are innocent children, of which most would grow out of their confusion if their bodies were permanently altered in the process.

AG Ken Paxton, who helped pass the state law banning “gender-affirming care” for minors, went off in response to the resolution. 

The post continues: “The people of Texas have spoken, and Austin City Council must listen.”

If there’s anyone who will follow through on such a threat, it’s Paxton. The Austin City Council is now on notice. They can back down and enforce state law as they are required to do, or they can face the consequences. Somehow, I doubt the city’s police force is going to be too keen on becoming legal martyrs for its far-left leadership. Further, the state itself has resources to go after those who break the law directly. Paxton will undoubtedly make use of them if necessary.

Children must be protected. If the government can’t do that, then it has no point in existing.

I think the Left is trying to turn Texas purple, and then blue, by pushing these kinds of far-left policies as hard as they can. They want to attract as many leftists as possible. I’ve read that Austin does not have enough police officers, and that the homeless situation is escalating. I think it’s heading into San Francisco territory.

scott467

Start prosecuting anyone who mutilates or chemically alters children. Charge them with felony child abuse and attempted gendercide.

Strip doctors of their license to practice mutilation in Texas.

Cut off all state funding to Austin.

Make Austin the most miserable place to be in all of Texas.

GO AFTER THE CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS TOO —

CORNELL LAW: accessory before the fact

An accessory before-the-fact is a person who aids, abets, or encourages another to commit a crime but who is not present at the scene. An accessory before the fact, like an accomplice may be held criminally liable to the same extent as the principal. Many jurisdictions refer to an accessory before the fact as an accomplice.

I can not find the law in Texas.

however:

In Bollenbach v. United States, 326 U.S. 607 (1946), the Supreme Court refused to apply principal liability (either as a principal in the first degree or as a principal in the second degree) to an accessory-after-the-fact. This contrasts with the ability of an accessory before the fact to have principal liability. 

According to the Federal Trial Handbook, the government has the burden of proof to show that the defendant assisted the principal offender after the crime.

PENAL CODE
TITLE 1. INTRODUCTORY PROVISIONS
CHAPTER 1. GENERAL PROVISIONS

This sucker seems to indicate a council IS LIBEL… It is long so here are the relavent parts.

Sec. 1.02. OBJECTIVES OF CODE. The general purposes of this code are to establish a system of prohibitions, penalties, and correctional measures to deal with conduct that unjustifiably and inexcusably causes or threatens harm to those individual or public interests for which state protection is appropriate. To this end, the provisions of this code are intended, and shall be construed, to achieve the following objectives:

(1) to insure the public safety through:

(A) the deterrent influence of the penalties hereinafter provided;

(B) the rehabilitation of those convicted of violations of this code; and

(C) such punishment as may be necessary to prevent likely recurrence of criminal behavior;

(2) by definition and grading of offenses to give fair warning of what is prohibited and of the consequences of violation…..

(5) to guide and 👉limit the exercise of official discretion in law enforcement to prevent arbitrary or oppressive treatment of persons suspected, accused, or convicted of offenses; and

(6) to define the scope of state interest in law enforcement against specific offenses and 👉to systematize the exercise of state criminal jurisdiction.

Acts 1973, 63rd Leg., p. 883, ch. 399, Sec. 1, eff. Jan. 1, 1974. Amended by Acts 1993, 73rd Leg., ch. 900, Sec. 1.01, eff. Sept. 1, 1994….

Sec. 1.03. EFFECT OF CODE. (a) Conduct does not constitute an offense unless it is defined as an offense by statute, municipal ordinance, order of a county commissioners court, or rule authorized by and lawfully adopted under a statute.

(b) The provisions of Titles 1, 2, and 3 apply to offenses defined by other laws, unless the statute defining the offense provides otherwise; however, the punishment affixed to an offense defined outside this code shall be applicable unless the punishment is classified in accordance with this code…

Further down it says:

Sec. 1.04. TERRITORIAL JURISDICTION.

(a) This state has jurisdiction over an offense that a person commits by his own conduct or the conduct of another for which he is criminally responsible if:

(1) either the conduct or a result that is an element of the offense occurs inside this state;

(2) the conduct outside this state constitutes an attempt to commit an offense inside this state;

(3) the conduct outside this state constitutes a conspiracy to commit an offense inside this state, and an act in furtherance of the conspiracy occurs inside this state; or

(4) the conduct inside this state constitutes an attempt, solicitation, or conspiracy to commit, or establishes criminal responsibility for the commission of, an offense in another jurisdiction that is also an offense under the laws of this state.

(b) If the offense is criminal homicide, a “result” is either the physical impact causing death or the death itself. If the body of a criminal homicide victim is found in this state, it is presumed that the death occurred in this state. If death alone is the basis for jurisdiction, it is a defense to the exercise of jurisdiction by this state that the conduct that constitutes the offense is not made criminal in the jurisdiction where the conduct occurred.

  :wpds_arrow:  (c) An offense based on an omission to perform a duty imposed on an actor by a statute of this state is committed inside this state regardless of the location of the actor at the time of the offense….

And then:

Sec. 1.07. DEFINITIONS. (a) In this code…

(3) “Agency” includes authority, board, bureau, commission, committee, council, department, district, division, and office….

(6) “Association” means a government or governmental subdivision or agency, trust, partnership, or two or more persons having a joint or common economic interest….

FINALLY

Sec. 1.08. PREEMPTION. No governmental subdivision or agency may enact or enforce a law that makes any conduct covered by this code an offense subject to a criminal penalty. This section shall apply only as long as the law governing the conduct proscribed by this code is legally enforceable.

Acts 1973, 63rd Leg., p. 883, ch. 399, Sec. 1, eff. Jan. 1, 1974. Amended by Acts 1993, 73rd Leg., ch. 900, Sec. 1.01, eff. Sept. 1, 1994.

.

.

.

Sec. 1.09. CONCURRENT JURISDICTION UNDER THIS CODE TO PROSECUTE OFFENSES THAT INVOLVE STATE PROPERTY.

With the consent of the appropriate local county or district attorney, the attorney general has concurrent jurisdiction with that consenting local prosecutor to prosecute under this code any offense an element of which occurs on state property or any offense that involves the use, unlawful appropriation, or misapplication of state property, including state funds…

(b) Notwithstanding any other law, an agency of this state, a political subdivision of this state, or a law enforcement officer or other person employed by an agency of this state or a political subdivision of this state may not contract with or in any other manner provide assistance to a federal agency or official with respect to the enforcement of a federal statute, order, rule, or regulation that:

(1) imposes a prohibition, restriction, or other regulation that does not exist under the laws of this state; and

(2) relates to:

(A) a registry requirement for a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition…

[Nice to see that!]

.

.

(d) A political subdivision of this state may not receive state funds if the political subdivision enters into a contract or adopts a rule, order, ordinance, or policy under which the political subdivision requires or assists with the enforcement of any federal statute, order, rule, or regulation described by Subsection

(b) or, by consistent actions, requires or assists with the enforcement of any federal statute, order, rule, or regulation described by Subsection (b).

State funds for the political subdivision shall be denied for the fiscal year following the year in which a final judicial determination in an action brought under this section is made that the political subdivision has required or assisted with the enforcement of any federal statute, order, rule, or regulation described by Subsection (b).

(e) Any individual residing in the jurisdiction of a political subdivision of this state may file a complaint with the attorney general if the individual offers evidence to support an allegation that the political subdivision has entered into a contract or adopted a rule, order, ordinance, or policy under which the political subdivision requires or assists with the enforcement of any federal statute, order, rule, or regulation described by Subsection (b)

or evidence to support an allegation that the political subdivision, by consistent actions, requires or assists with the enforcement of any federal statute, order, rule, or regulation described by Subsection (b).

The individual must include with the complaint the evidence the individual has that supports the complaint.

(f) If the attorney general determines that a complaint filed under Subsection (e) against a political subdivision of this state is valid, the attorney general may file a petition for a writ of mandamus or apply for other appropriate equitable relief in a district court in Travis County or in a county in which the principal office of the political subdivision is located to compel the political subdivision to comply with Subsection (b).

The attorney general may recover reasonable expenses incurred in obtaining relief under this subsection, including court costs, reasonable attorney’s fees, investigative costs, witness fees, and deposition costs.

(g) An appeal of a suit brought under Subsection (f) is governed by the procedures for accelerated appeals in civil cases under the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure. The appellate court shall render its final order or judgment with the least possible delay.

(h) The attorney general shall defend any agency of this state in a suit brought against the agency by the federal government for an action or omission consistent with the requirements of this section.

I am not seeing anything specific, but the whole flavor, is that STATE LAW is supreme AND the state can go after councils that do not follow state law. So I do not see anything that PROTECTS government employees because of their status AS government employees/officers.

This is a thread reader by Julie Kelly about the alteration of the documents taken from Mar-a-Lago.

Now turning to perhaps the most problematic issue for Jack Smith and Jay Bratt, his lead prosecutor.

This is from court transcript of April 12 hearing. Cannon (who probably already knew the real answer) asked Bratt about the condition of the seized boxes.

This is not true:

comment image

Jack Smith confessed as much in yesterday’s filing. He would not have but for Nauta’s attorney busting DOJ for tampering with evidence.

Defense building evidence to support motion to dismiss on prosecutorial misconduct–which is pending before Cannon.

I’ve placed the rest here because the screenshots take up a lot of space.
comment image

This is even more stunning by Smith.

Setting aside the FBI high-tailed it out of southern FLA to conduct the investigation within the confines of the corrupt Washington FBI field office, Smith admits DOJ cannot be sure every place holder corresponds with the correct document.

comment image

This is an answer to defense accusations that incriminating files do not correspond with FBI index of evidence.

And look at that FBI slip sheet–what a shoddy operation conducted by sloppy investigators bc they have zero accountability.

comment image

eilert

What if the entire Mar-a-Lago raid was part of a cover-up combined with a setup? Thanks to the exceptional reporting by independent journalist @julie_kelly2, we now know this scenario is more likely than not. It’s a chilling reality.

Democrats were desperate to ascertain whether Trump had kept a copy of the Crossfire Hurricane binders. Trump believed he had declassified them, but the DOJ maintained they required further review and redactions before release. Three years later, the DOJ still hasn’t released them. Knowing that Trump felt entitled to retain a copy, they suspected he and his associates might have done so. The Democrats needed a pretext to reclaim the binders. The White House met with Jay Bratt, one of the original Crossfire Hurricane investigators, around the same time they pressured the GSA to send four to six pallets of Trump’s presidential records from a Virginia warehouse to Mar-a-Lago. This created the perfect opportunity to infiltrate Trump’s private estate and prosecute him for illegally retaining classified documents. Jay Bratt is now Jack Smith’s top prosecutor.

comment image

Classified Document Case Timeline

On January 19, 2021, then-President Trump declassified the Crossfire Hurricane Binders, documents that purportedly contain explosive information about the Clintons, Obama, Biden, and other key national intelligence officials. Despite Trump’s move to make these records public, the DOJ has obstructed their release, to shield these figures from scrutiny. Meanwhile, both the White House and the DOJ suspect Trump and his allies possess copies of the binders, creating a significant concern for those implicated in their contents.

comment image

In September 2021, the GSA reached out to the Trump transition team, demanding the immediate removal of four to six pallets of boxes weighing up to 2,000 pounds from its Virginia warehouse. These boxes contained documents accumulated chronologically throughout Trump’s term. This sudden insistence raises a crucial question: Was the White House orchestrating the GSA’s push for Trump to remove these boxes? (Note 1)

In September 2021, Jack Smith’s lead prosecutor, Jay Bratt, held a meeting with the White House to discuss Trump’s possession of the Crossfire Hurricane Binders. The question arises: did the White House disclose to Bratt that the GSA was on the verge of sending pallets of presidential records, potentially including classified documents, to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate?

In September 2021, between four and six pallets of boxes sent by the GSA arrived at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. Trump employees placed them in various rooms within his private residence. Despite their arrival, the majority of the boxes were neither opened nor reviewed by anyone, including the president, before the FBI seized them. (Note 2)

comment image

In January 2022, responding to pressure from NARA, Trump’s transition team sent 15 boxes of documents to the archivist. The boxes remained unopened, and the documents inside were neatly arranged in chronological order, suggesting they hadn’t been accessed since leaving the White House. NARA identified up to 180 documents that might have been classified but did not find the Crossfire Hurricane binders and ultimately referred the matter to the DOJ.

In June 2022, Jack Smith’s top prosecutor, Jay Bratt, requested to see the remaining documents at Mar-a-Lago. Trump met with Bratt and instructed his lawyers to provide anything he needed. Bratt was then shown the remaining boxes, examined them, and removed several documents. It’s crucial to note that Bratt was involved in the original Crossfire Hurricane investigation and is named in the Crossfire Hurricane binders. Although he was searching for those binders, he never disclosed this to Trump. A year earlier, Bratt had met with the White House to discuss the binders and strategies for determining if Trump retained copies. Bratt, a lifelong Democrat and Biden donor, failed to locate the binders during his visit. Just two months later, FBI agents raided the former president’s home.

On August 8, 2022, one year after the GSA pressured Trump to take delivery of the boxes, and following the prosecutor’s meeting at the White House, the FBI raided the former president’s home to seize them. Rather than simply seizing the boxes and sending them to a filter team for review, the FBI chose a more intrusive approach reviewing them on-site. It is becoming clear they were looking for something specific – the Crossfire Hurricane binders.

Seemingly aware that the boxes contained classified presidential records, the FBI brought cover sheets marked as Secret/SCI and Top Secret/SCI to Mar-a-Lago. While searching through various boxes, they arranged documents on the floor with these cover sheets and took photographs. These images were then leaked to The New York Times and The Washington Post, which quickly published them. The photographs created the misleading impression that Trump had haphazardly scattered classified documents across the floor of his home.

comment image

On August 9, 2022, the FBI flew the boxes to Washington, D.C., where they were reviewed by agents. However, the agents failed to document which files were in which boxes, and they didn’t record which boxes were sealed versus which were opened. Trump’s transition team had boxed the president’s records chronologically, packing them as they were created. The FBI’s mishandling of the evidence makes it impossible to verify this chronology or determine whether any documents were accessed after the GSA delivered them to Mar-a-Lago.

The Full Timeline

comment image

For the very best reporting on Jack Smith’s prosecution of President Trump follow @julie_kelly2 on Twitter.

Note 1: Some commenters have suggested that the GSA requires former presidents to remove boxes within 6 months. In this case the GSA was pressuring Trump to remove boxes within 9 months. Upon further review there doesn’t seem to be any such 6 month limit. “The General Services Administration (GSA) typically assists former presidents with their transition out of office, including handling their presidential records and other materials. However, there isn’t a specific standard rule that universally applies to all former presidents for the storage duration of their materials by the GSA.

The GSA’s services vary, often based on the needs of each former president. The Presidential Transition Act of 1963 governs these arrangements, but it does not specify a precise time limit for the GSA to store the items. The length of time for which the GSA stores materials can depend on various factors, such as available storage space, the volume of materials, and the specific arrangements made between the former president and the GSA.”

Note 2: Some commenters have suggested that Trump was going through all of the boxes sent by the GSA. Testimony shows that Trump went through a small number of boxes that he brought directly from the White House and a very small number of boxes from the GSA. In total very few boxes were every reviewed by the president.

“…Trump believed he had declassified them, but the DOJ maintained they required further review and redactions before release…”

THE DOJ DOES NOT OVER-RULE A PRESIDENT PERIOD. A President has plenary powers to classify and de-classify given to him by the Constitution.

A quick scan:

This Is What We Know About the President’s Power to Declassify
independentsentinel.com

Trump supporter Mark Levin says the President’s power over declassification is in the constitution.

May 2017 — Do presidents have ‘the ability to declassify anything’?politifact.com

We found broad agreement that a president, using powers granted by the Constitution, is able to declassify essentially anything.

Who argued Trump didn’t have plenary powers to declassify?tigerdroppings.com

Steven Aftergood, director of the Federation of American Scientists Project on Government Secrecy, said that such authority gives the president the authority to “classify and declassify at will.” … Let me remind you…Trump had plenary powers to declassify.

Jeffrey Epstein’s “Black Book” Is Up For Auction, Bidders’ Identities Will Be Held Secret
Per The New York Post:

A mysterious “black book” believed to belong to the late pedophile financier, which revealed the names and addresses of 221 previously undisclosed people, is going up for auction — and bidders are being assured that their identities will be kept secret.

It could fetch up to $200,000 — or more, the auction house owner told the Daily Beast, which first reported the story.

The book was reportedly found on Fifth Avenue in the East Village by a female musician in the 1990s, but how it came to be there remains unclear to this day.

What is clear is that the book names 349 people — 221 of whom were not named in a later, more famous “black book” that Epstein kept.

I don’t understand why this book is not in the possession of the FIB or some law enforcement since Epstein was under criminal investigation when he didn’t kill himself.

scott467

Because they want to mock us and thumb their noses at us, showing us that not only will all the criminals in that book not be prosecuted, but the gov’t will allow the highest bidder to hold blackmail material over all the other people in the book.

The gov’t is organized crime, the biggest mafia in the world, and they don’t care who knows it.

Obviously, they want people to know it.

pgroup2

I doubt it will be blackmail material. There is no chain of custody for it nor is there any way to link names in the book to specific criminal acts. I would be surprised if the winning bid gets into six figures.

Gail Combs

“..There is no chain of custody..”

So there is NO PROOF that it is actually Epstein’s and not a forgery…

Have to expect that the seller can provide provenance, or it won’t be worth bidding on.

Any name which is in the book is blackmail material itself, i.e., “do you want your name revealed to have been in the Epstein journal, or would like to pay to keep it secret?

Or would you like to vote this way (or that way) to keep your name secret?

Or would you like to not go forward with that business plan to keep your name secret?

Or would you like to not sign that bill into law, to keep your name secret?”

pgroup2

When he died, he instantly became legally innocent. IOW, any govt investigation of him [from a criminal viewpoint] stopped. His presumption of innocence became conclusive proof of innocence, as far as the legal system is concerned. Even if the FIB has evidence that was gotten from Epstein, it all is now property owned by his estate and must be distributed to his heirs.

Black books included.

side note: Unless the island was owned by a trust [or people other than Epstein], it also will be auctioned off and the profit distributed to his heirs. The only way the govt can keep any of his property is if there are seizure laws that authorize it.

Valerie Curren

I’m pretty sure that OKC was Not taken down by the truck bomb but by bombs on the support pillars. There was footage of firefighters removing unexploded material from support pillars of the “intact” portion of the structure that I recall seeing in the early days, also a friend in Tulsa was saying that there were seismic records of Multiple explosions at at least one university, iirc. Perhaps the truck bomb didn’t “cause” the OKC building to (partially) fall, but masked the Actual cause, similarly to the planes & the twin towers, fwiw.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Well, that’s interesting.

pat frederick

these “kids” are definitely out of control…wanting to hang college administrators? chop off their heads? sounds like terroristic threats and these students should be arrested. if the colleges do nothing and someone DOES get hurt–it’s all on them.

@thestustustudio
At the George Washington University Gaza Solidarity Encampment today, the protesters held a “People’s Tribunal” where they put President Ellen Granberg, Provost Christopher Bracey, the Board of Trustees, @GWPolice
, and many others on trial.
Is it normal for students to want to hang their provost and chop the heads off of the Board of Trustees?
“Guillotine, Guillotine, Guillotine, Guillotine”
“Bracey, Bracey, we see you. You assault students too. Off to the motherfucking gallows with you.”
“As you already know where I am sending her [to the guillotine], her and her fuckass bob.”
When will @GWtweets
finally do something? If the students hurt any of these people in any way, the university will be completely at fault.

Celebrating Pride in the Classroom – anzuk education – blog

June 4, 2023 – As educators, as parents, as citizens, we know that young people do better at school and in life if they attend schools where they feel welcome and safe. In celebration of Pride month we have collated a list of LGBTQI+ resources to educate and create safe and inclusive school environments

I remember seeing once–oh, it was probably the 1990s–a letter sent by a school official to someone complaining about the “sexual education” in the schools. And it bore this very same typo in the body of the letter.

Among so many others that it was obvious this school official could not spell.

I think the drug is Ayers style COMMUNISM. Remember he and his buddies became PROFESSORS.

Ayers’ Plan for American Re-education Camps and The Need to Kill Millions-VIDEO (Deleted by You Tube)

FBI special informant, Larry Grathwohl, who penetrated the Weatherman Underground of Bill Ayers told former FBI Agent and informant, and Dave’s late friend, Larry Grathwohl, that he believed that when the Communist takeover happened, he would have to incarcerate 50 million Americans into re-education camps and exterminate 25 million of them.

arry was an FBI special informant who had penetrated the Underground and became a member in order to take down the organization by getting Bill Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dorne arrested.

This is the part that I would play the video of Larry recounting what Ayers told him about future FEMA camps, but Youtube recently took down the video because it “violates Youtube’s policy on hate speech”….

Bill Ayers, you will remember, wrote Obama’s fictional “autobiography” Dreams From My Father, and Ayers’ family supported and groomed Obama for the Presidency from the time he was a teenager. It appears that Chicago Communist Frank Marshall Davis handed Obama off to the Ayers group in Chicago in the early 1980s.

Bernadine Dohrn’s fingerprints are also all over Obama’s course syllabus when he was an adjunct lecturer at the University of Chicago. And of course, Obama’s entire adult life and political career has had Ayers and Dohrn as the main enablers and drivers….

Oh, and just as an aside, Grathwohl’s eyewitness testimony confirms that Ayers and Dohrn have planned on and anticipated the need to kill fully 10%-15% of the population as “unreformable, die-hard capitalists.”

In the early 1980s when this interview was recorded, the population of the U.S. was 250 million, thus Grathwohl’s number of 25 million that Ayers and Dohrn were planning on killing. Today, that number would be 30-45 million Americans that will need to be “eliminated” in order to quash the “counter-revolution.”

2015 BILL AYERS TO BLACK LIVES MATTER: CREATE A FIRE

NEW YORK – Bill Ayers, the former colleague of President Obama who co-founded the domestic terrorist group Weather Underground, acknowledged in a radio interview the revolutionary ideology driving the Black Lives Matter movement.

“I have been very energetic in my support of Black Lives Matter,” Ayers told host Eugene Puryear of the online radio show “Liberation Radio,” produced by an activist group called the Party for Socialism and Liberation.

  :wpds_arrow: The interview with Ayers, a retired professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, took place Friday. In a September interview with the Yale campus paper, Ayers boast of his influence on the 2008 election of Obama and described himself as “a First Amendment fundamentalist that is also a socialist, anarchist and communist.”

In the interview Friday, he said Black Lives Matter is “one of the most hopeful signs in the last several decades of folks coming together and building a movement for fundamental change.”

At the beginning of the interview, Ayers placed the movement in the context of socialist revolutionary methodology.

“There’s a lot of mythology behind Black Lives Matter, assuming the only reason this is happening is because of social media and because of the use of cameras,” Ayers said. “That is fundamentally false. What is exciting is that the Black Lives Matter moment comes after decades and centuries of the serial assassination of black people.”

Ayers said the “driving force of Black Lives Matter is organized young people who have been mobilizing for years around a lot of issues.”

“Black Lives Matter’s focus is state violence against black people. Its focus is also decent education, ‘stop closing our schools,’ jobs for everybody, health care, mental health, drug programs.”

He called Black Lives Matters “a comprehensive movement” and said “the folks involved in it in Chicago are long-time organizers.”

Mobilizing masses

👉There is no single issue or single struggle that amounts to the social upheaval we need,” Ayers explained. “What we need is a social movement that engages and mobilizes masses of people, and frankly Black Lives Matter is at this moment a pretty good beginning example of that.”

Ayers expanded on the theme, explaining how mobilizing masses of people on the theme of Black Lives Matter played into the power dynamics needed to propel a revolutionary movement to achieve social change.

“We have to see where all the issues are connected – that one thing is not the only thing that is going on,” he distinguished.

“So, you have to be aware in any movement that the response of power is always the same,” he said. “First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they try to co-opt you with a few little reforms, then – if nothing else works – they beat the heck out of you. So, this is what is happening with Black Lives Matter, the attempt to co-opt it, the attempt to patronize it – by power, is what I mean.”

In this context, Ayers explained how he sees the role played by FBI Director James Comey in the Obama administration as that of a reactionary attempting to co-opt the Black Lives Matter movement from its true revolutionary goals….

IMO he’s saying that there is a bigger problem with the vaccines, which magnifies the die-off from them (same victims – the JABBED). What he’s saying is that not only are the jabbed more likely to get cancer, clots, stroke, cardiac, etc. – AND not only are they more likely to get new cases of COVID (e.g., the Cleveland Clinic study) – but the jabbed are more likely to DIE if we experience more virulent versions of COVID at any point in the future, AND he thinks that is likely BECAUSE of the vaccines – i.e., the vaccines are driving the virus to get worse.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yes! Exactly!

I’m not 100% in agreement with him on his 30-40% morbidity/mortality number happening by normal evolution or from continued use of the vaccines at the current rates. IMO a huge die-off would only happen by more GOF tampering by the Faucists and Depoppers, releasing a new and really deadly variant, which will require some extreme change to the virus. Otherwise, I think that normal (Godly) evolutionary design has this covered to keep it low.

pgroup2

I am convinced that I would have died from cancer if I had allowed the agents of Satan to inject me with even one dose of that poison.

Interestingly, nobody at the cancer clinic that I use ever said anything about “vaccines” or asked if I had gotten one.

It’s almost like they knew something.

The biggie is the Jab compromised the immune system.

This means those who normally could fight off a nasty disease CAN NO LONGER DO SO.

It also means — if this is a one/two punch — then a disease tailored to take advantage of the weaknesses caused by the jab, could be released by these SOBs and then the REAL die off will happen BUT be blamed on the virulence of the New Disease.

This provides deniability for the mass murders.

Thank you.

There is also a HUGE issue with people who already HAVE cancer, OR immunocompromised conditions (such as RA), OR pre-existing cardiovascular/heart issues, OR neurological conditions (BOTH physical [such as epilepsy], or psychological [such as clinical depression]); OR have biomarkers for any of the above, OR have DNA predisposition for any of the above — and then take ANY COVID-19 “vaccine.”

Since the COVID-19 “vaccines” were ENGINEERED to damage / destroy the natural immune system of the “vaccinated” person; PLUS the presence of ingredients like the piece of the SV40 cancer promoter gene in these “vaccines”. PLUS the fact that the lipid nanoparticles in these “vaccines” spread them throughout the body of the “vaccinated” person, INCLUDING crossing the Blood-Brain Barrier — it is a recipe for disaster.

A number of years ago I saw an article that stated REGULATIONS (not laws) cost the USA 2% decrease in GDP per year. And I think it was accumulative.

AhHa found it Thank You YANDEX. Last time I looked several years ago, I could not find this.

2013 Federal Regulations Have Made You 75 Percent PoorerU.S. GDP is just $16 trillion instead of $54 trillion

👉The growth of federal regulations over the past six decades has cut U.S. economic growth by an average of 2 percentage points per year, according to a new study in the Journal of Economic Growth. As a result, the average American household receives about $277,000 less annually than it would have gotten in the absence of six decades of accumulated regulations—a median household income of $330,000 instead of the $53,000 we get now.

The researchers, economists John Dawson of Appalachian State University and John Seater of North Carolina State, constructed an index of federal regulations by tracking the growth in the number of pages in the Code of Federal Regulations since 1949. The number of pages, they note, has increased six-fold from 19,335 in 1949 to 134,261 in 2005. (As of 2011, the number of pages had risen to 169,301.) They devise a pretty standard endogenous growth theory model and then insert their regulatory burden index to calculate how federal regulations have affected economic growth….

.

.

.

One such public choice theorist, Mancur Olson, argued in The Rise and Decline of Nations (1982) that economic stagnation and even decline set in when powerful special-interest lobbies—crony capitalists if you will—capture a country’s regulatory system and use it to block competitors, making the economy ever less efficient. The growing burden of regulation could some day turn economic growth negative, but in a note Dawson and Seater suggest that in the long run that will “not be tolerated by society.” Let’s hope that they are right.

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.

HOLY SPIRIT POWER

Whoever values the world – is not of God;
The Spirit cannot dwell in him – he is flawed;
Seek ye first the kingdom of God – in His Word;
All will be added too – have you not heard?

The Power of the Spirit is immense;
Indwelled with the Spirit is intense;
There is no comparison – none at all;
To anything worldly – the world is too small!

His Spirit within you empowers – protects;
He convicts you of sin – and He corrects;
No power in the universe – can compare;
Anytime – anyplace – or anywhere!

Trust in God – keep close contact – let Him in;
Pray He will send His Spirit to dwell within;
When the Spirit indwells – He guides your way;
Whatever you do – whatever you say!

All bad feelings – all hurt – attendant pain;
He will dispel – till you are free again;
He will guide your heart – so free you will stay;
The demons that pursue you – He’ll keep at bay!

All turmoil – torment – they seek to create;
He will disable – and surely abate;
Keep in obedience – and He’ll bless you;
With His gifts and fruits – that’s what He will do!

When you are tempted – by the evil one;
Think not twice – ask Him – and it will be done;
Take this thought from me – please take it away;
In Jesus’ Name – it has no power to stay!

In all that you do – what you encounter;
He will assist – and put it asunder;
Fear not the evil one – his power fades;
With the Spirit inside – His power aids!

In the supernatural war – we fight each day;
There’s no greater power – to keep them away;
Than His Spirit inside you – strengthening;
Protecting – their distance He’s lengthening!

Come – Holy Spirit – within me – I pray;
Keep all evil from me – keep it at bay;
Keep my heart – and my thoughts – pure with Your grace;
Indwell in my heart – shine Your light on my face!

Elon Musk Now Fully Awake on Election Integrity, Promotes Non-Profit Urging Whistleblowers to Come Forward

The ad states:

Free and fair elections are the bedrock of our American experiment. It is part of our core. But we can only have confidence in the result if there is trust in the process. Across the country, there are real cases of fraud and abuses of the system that have eroded our trust. From executive orders opening the door to non-citizens voting, while some cities look to make it commonplace. Unions rigging the game through unethical ballot harvesting. And some leaders are outright refusing to follow the law when administering elections.

This is happening in plain sight. But those in power look the other way. They lie and dismiss and then demonize common sense steps to ensure our elections are free and fair. And they are still lying. That is where the Fair Election Fund comes in. We are making a major investment to compensate those who expose cheating in our elections.

If you have knowledges of abuses in the system, your story could be what helps preserve our democracy. If you are an election worker, organizer or concerned citizen who has witnessed this corruption first hand, we want to hear from you. Those who report fraud from our $5 million fund. With your help, we’ll shine a light on the corruption and stop it. This is how we restore trust.

University presidents everywhere need to embrace this simple statement by Ben Sasse, President of the University of Florida:
“At the University of Florida, we have repeatedly, patiently explained two things to protesters: We will always defend your rights to free speech and free assembly—but if you cross the line on clearly prohibited activities, you will be thrown off campus and suspended. In Gainesville, that means a three-year prohibition from campus. That’s serious. We said it. We meant it. We enforced it. We wish we didn’t have to, but the students weighed the costs, made their decisions, and will own the consequences as adults. We’re a university, not a daycare. We don’t coddle emotions, we wrestle with ideas.”

Thank you for this. IT IS DYNAMITE.

It appears that BOTH Pfizer-BioNTech AND Moderna use p53 suppressor ingredients in their modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines.” Pfizer-BioNTech uses a piece of the SV40 African Green Monkey cancer promoter code. Moderna’s patent, described in the article, talks about “insertional mutagenesis” and “Inhibition of tumor suppressor genes.”
p53 is an important cancer tumor suppressor gene in the human body.

But wait, there’s more!
Pfizer-BioNTech (cited in the blog article) ADMITS that the SV40 cancer promoter gene piece is in their modRNA COVID-19 “vaccines.” THEN, the company tries to CYA by stating THIS:

“Additionally, the SV40 promoter/enhancer amount sin the drug product [the company’s COVID-19 “vaccines”] poses minimal safety risk for human use…”

MINIMAL RISK? REALLY? When the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 “vaccines” ALL have N1-methylpseudouridine in them — a lipid nanoparticle that is SPECIFICALLY ENGINEERED to EVADE the “vaccinated” person’s body’s natural immune system, which would, in NORMAL circumstances, break down and eliminate such an element from the body?

And, that if one is correctly reading the copy of the patent filing by Moderna in the linked article above, for an RNA-based vaccine that may induce “inhibition of tumor suppressor genes”, the year of filing was 2019.

Did he take one of his own vaccines?

He’s left-handed, so he would be expected to gesture with his left hand, but keeping his right hand perfectly still and hidden seems very odd. I did see the upper part of his right arm move a couple of times, but his hand remained hidden. One possibility besides a stroke could be some form of palsy in that hand and arm.

Gail Combs

Being left handed (I am) does not mean ZERO movement in the right arm/hand for over 2 minutes. He does move the shoulder but not the arm and hand.

Also he does not look good.

Reminds me of the old joke about Adolf Hitler and the Jewish soothsayer….

Back in the Warsaw ghetto, rumors started going around that a certain soothsayer could accurately predict the day of someone’s death. Hitler found out about this and told the SS to fetch this soothsayer to his presence.

They drag this old guy into the room with Hitler, and start beating on him to find out how long Hitler could expect to survive. After hours of various tortures, the sage allows that Hitler will die on a Jewish holiday.

The interrogation continues…..which one? Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Passover, Purim?

Until, finally, the truth is told: “any day you die will be a Jewish holiday.”

Theft among postal workers is pervasive. So much so that staff at the USPS Office of Inspector General’s (USPS-OIG) office announced last month they will audit whether postal managers are doing enough to stop it. They plan to publish that report in September.
Among only a few recent alleged or confirmed examples of mail theft in the greater New Orleans area:
• In March, the Department of Justice indicted Gretna resident and USPS employee Randy Brown Jr., on four-counts, including unlawful delay of the U.S. Mail by a postal employee. Brown allegedly stole and embezzled other people’s checks.

• Also in March, U.S. District Judge Sarah S. Vance sentenced New Orleans resident Coi Morris for stealing items from the mail he was entrusted to handle as a postal employee. Morris worked as a mail handler at the processing center in New Orleans when he was apprehended.
• Kenner resident David Rayford was indicted last month on mail theft charges. Rayford allegedly stole a greeting card that contained a Visa Gift Card and $100.00 cash.
• In March, New Orleans resident Timothy McMillan, Jr. pleaded guilty to Theft of Mail by a Postal Service employee. USPS-OIG officials received complaints that the New Orleans Main Office Delivery Unit had delivered open parcels. USPS-OIG Special Agents placed a greeting card containing $100 in the mail for McMillan to process and deliver on his route. The card was addressed to a fictitious person and address from another fictitious person and address. McMillan opened the package. Shortly after, USPS-OIG Special Agents stopped his vehicle and observed the opened card in the rear of his vehicle and found marked bills on him.
For each person, a conviction on these charges can bring between three to five years in prison.
As RVIVR reported last year, former USPS employee Dazmon Dyer pleaded guilty in federal court to delaying and stealing the U.S. mail.
In June a USPS clerk in Maryland used her position to obtain other people’s private information. She then stole thousands of dollars.

This will drive people to use the mail even less than they do now. Money can be wired and gift cards can be sent by email. No wonder postal rates consistently rise.

At most, I mail three, maybe four times each year.

Avoid mailing stuff, like the plague.

Written letters are dying. The younger generation uses e-mail and text messages.
