2024·05·11 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

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

January 6 Tapes?

Where are the tapes? Anyone, Anyone? Bueller? Johnson??

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

News Flash

Today, it is still the case that Joe Biden didn’t Win.

I realize that to some readers, this might be a shock; surely at some point things must change and Biden will have actually won.

But the past cannot actually be changed.

It will always and forever be the case that Joe Biden didn’t win.

And if you, Leftist Lurker, want to dismiss it as dead white cis-male logic…well, you can call it what you want, but then please just go fuck off. No one here buys that bullshit–logic is logic and facts are facts regardless of skin color–and if you gave it a moment’s rational thought, you wouldn’t either. Of course your worthless education never included being able to actually reason–or detect problems with false reasoning–so I don’t imagine you’ll actually wake up as opposed to being woke.

As Ayn Rand would sometimes point out: Yes, you are free to evade reality. What you cannot do is evade the consequences of evading reality. Or to put it concretely: You can ignore the Mack truck bearing down on you as you play in the middle of the street, you won’t be able to ignore the consequences of ignoring the Mack truck.

And Ayn Rand also pointed out that existence (i.e., the sum total of everything that exists) precedes consciousness–our consciousnesses are a part of existence, not outside of it–therefore reality cannot be a “social construct” as so many of you fucked-up-in-the-head people seem to think.

So much for Leftist douchebag lurkers. For the rest of you, the regular readers and those lurkers who understand such things: I continue to carry the banner once also carried by Wheatie. His Fraudulency didn’t win.

Let’s Go, Brandon!!

His Fraudulency

Joe Biteme, properly styled His Fraudulency, continues to infest the White House, we haven’t heard much from the person who should have been declared the victor, and hopium is still being dispensed even as our military appears to have joined the political establishment in knuckling under to the fraud.

One can hope that all is not as it seems.

I’d love to feast on that crow.

(I’d like to add, I find it entirely plausible, even likely, that His Fraudulency is also His Figureheadedness. (Apparently that wasn’t a word; it got a red underline. Well it is now.) Where I differ with the hopium addicts is on the subject of who is really in charge. It ain’t anyone we like.)

Justice Must Be Done.

The prior election must be acknowledged as fraudulent, and steps must be taken to prosecute the fraudsters and restore integrity to the system.

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

Lawyer Appeasement Section

OK now for the fine print.

This is the WQTH Daily Thread. You know the drill. There’s no Poltical correctness, but civility is a requirement. There are Important Guidelines,  here, with an addendum on 20191110.

We have a new board – called The U Tree – where people can take each other to the woodshed without fear of censorship or moderation.

And remember Wheatie’s Rules:

1. No food fights
2. No running with scissors.
3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.
4. Zeroth rule of gun safety: Don’t let the government get your guns.
5. Rule one of gun safety: The gun is always loaded.
5a. If you actually want the gun to be loaded, like because you’re checking out a bump in the night, then it’s empty.
6. Rule two of gun safety: Never point the gun at anything you’re not willing to destroy.
7. Rule three: Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire.
8. Rule the fourth: Be sure of your target and what is behind it.

(Hmm a few extras seem to have crept in.)

Spot Prices.

Kitco Ask. Last week:

Gold $2,302.20
Silver $26.61
Platinum $965.00
Palladium $974.00
Rhodium $5,300.00

This week, markets closed as of 3PM MT.

Gold $2,360.70
Silver $28.23
Platinum $1,003.00
Palladium $1,005.00
Rhodium $5,400.00

Gold has suddenly broken out of the $2300 neighborhood these past two days, and silver has gone up even more in percentage terms. Platinum has almost exceeded palladium’s price (and I continue to maintain it’s on sale right now).

Rhodium is moving upwards again, in spite of the crappy economy.

#BREAKING: Much of the Northern United States has a chance to See Northern Lights as Level G4 Severe geomagnetic hits in nearly two decades

A series of powerful severe geomagnetic storms are expected to hit Earth tonight into Saturday, affecting much of Canada and possibly extending as far south as Alabama and Northern California in the United States. This follows multiple strong geomagnetic storms produced by our sun since Monday, triggered by a series of solar flares resulting in six separate events heading towards Earth with five more due to hit the Earth over the weekend. The NOAA Space Weather Center has issued its first G4 (Severe) geomagnetic watch in nearly two decades, the last being in 2005. They forecast a Kp index reaching a mid-level 8, corresponding to a G4 on the G5 rating scale, indicating the potential for a strong to severe geomagnetic storm, the second most intense category, just below an extreme storm. The storm is anticipated to persist throughout the night and into Saturday night, possibly causing widespread power grid issues, disruption to satellite and radio navigation, and other related problems.

Bragg’s Paralegal Admits His Office Deleted Three Pages of Phone Calls Between Stormy Daniels’ Lawyer and Michael Cohen
CNN reported:

Defense attorney Emil Bove is challenging the evidence prosecutors are putting forward, asking paralegal Jaden Jarmel-Schneider about the deletion of some toll records between Keith Davidson and Michael Cohen after the defense submitted recordings between the two from 2018.

The paralegal has admitted that they’ve deleted some call records from the files. Bove also has Jarmel-Schneider confirm that some calls were removed from an exhibit of calls between Gina Rodriguez and Dylan Howard.

Bove said it was three-pages worth of records.

Jarmel-Schneider took issue with Bove characterizing it as a “significant” number but he did acknowledge some were removed.

“At this trial, you’re sort of the guardian of the toll records?” Bove asks.

“I don’t know if I’d say that, but if you say so,” Jarmel-Schneider responds.

Special Prosecutor Jack Smith *CAUGHT* Breaking the Same Law He Weaponized Against J6 Defendants

Jack Smith is on the hot seat at SCOTUS for weaponizing an obscure law that the D.C. court has thrown at hundreds of J6 defendants.

Obstruction of an official proceeding.

However, in Jack Smith’s case, he is assuredly GUILTY of committing the crime that is inappropriately using to charge J6 defendants like former President Trump.

According to analysis by the American Thinker’s @Bookwormroom, Jack Smith broke the law when he submitted misleading court documents on the FBI’s now-infamous photo of classified-marked documents found at Mar-a-Lago.

It turns out, that now-infamous photo was a “frame job.”

As @julie_kelly2 had reported, the court documents show that the FBI had used ad hoc “Top Secret” cover slips to splay out the presidential documents in an unnecessary photo tailor-made for Biden campaign optics.

The main issue? The FBI not only misled the public and the court by fabricating the photo-op, it destroyed evidence by changing the order the classified-marked documents were found in.

You see, if the presidential documents were found in sequential order by date, it does a major blow to the prosecution’s baseless accusations of criminal intent.

Therefore, the FBI and Jack Smith are GUILTY of breaking §1512(c)(2), which was actually implemented to prevent companies from removing or destroying documents relevant to court proceedings.

The law states: ‘Whoever corruptly … otherwise obstructs, influences, or impedes any official proceeding, or attempts to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 20 years, or both.’

As Widburg remarks at the @AmericanThinker:

“Thus, we have two known instances in which the DOJ altered records, documents, and objects. Moreover, the staged Mar-a-Lago photo indicates that this was done to harm President Trump. That strongly implies both corruption and intention, two elements of a criminal cause of action.

“When/if Trump returns to the White House, he needs to have his DOJ investigate the lead-up to how Smith and his minions altered and manipulated those documents. And if there’s reasonable evidence that they did so corruptly and intentionally, they must be prosecuted to the full extent of the actual laws, as written (as opposed to the Democrats’ “make it up as we go along” version of “law”). Our nation cannot survive with a partisan DOJ that is willing to violate the nation’s laws to destroy its perceived political opponents.”

It is thus Jack Smith and the FBI who should be on trial for the selective and vindictive prosecution of a president.

It is Jack Smith and the FBI who should be on trial for Biden administration collusion to bring sham charges against a leading presidential candidate.

It is Jack Smith and the FBI who should be on trial for committing election interference and undermining Americans’ confidence in free and fair elections.

Here is Widburg’s article, by the way. A good piece.

americanthinker.com/blog/202…

Jack Smith has admitted to violating the same law used against J6 defendants

Special Prosecutor Jack Smith has just admitted that he and other DOJ and FBI minions manipulated documentary evidence underlying the Mar-a-Lago case against Donald Trump. Everybody from Judge Aileen…

americanthinker.com

Replying to @kylenabecker

Based on the information provided in your article, the specific charges that could potentially be brought against Jack Smith and his associates include:

1. **Obstruction of an Official Proceeding (18 U.S.C. § 1512(c)(2))**: This charge is mentioned directly in the article as the law that Jack Smith and the FBI are accused of violating. The law prohibits anyone from corruptly obstructing, influencing, or impeding any official proceeding, or attempting to do so. The penalty for this crime includes a fine, imprisonment for up to 20 years, or both.

2. **Fabrication of Evidence (18 U.S.C. § 1001)**: Although not explicitly mentioned, the act of creating a misleading photo and altering the order of documents to fabricate evidence could fall under this statute, which criminalizes knowingly and willfully making materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statements or representations in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States.

3. **Conspiracy (18 U.S.C. § 371)**: If there is evidence that Jack Smith and his associates acted together to commit any of the above crimes, they could also be charged with conspiracy. This charge applies when two or more persons conspire to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose.

4. **Election Interference (52 U.S.C. § 10307)**: The article suggests that the actions taken by Smith and the FBI could be seen as interfering with an election by undermining confidence in the electoral process and potentially affecting the outcome of an election. This charge would require evidence that the actions were intended to influence the election.

5. **Misconduct in Office**: While not a specific federal statute, misconduct in office could be a general charge if it is proven that Smith and his associates abused their positions of power to carry out the alleged actions. This would likely be pursued under various federal laws depending on the specific acts of misconduct.

These charges are based on the allegations made in the article and would require evidence to support them in a court of law. The actual charges that could be brought would depend on the findings of an investigation and the discretion of the prosecuting authority.

A Trump DOJ could choose to prosecute him.

Hey Steve, have a blessed Saturday & a wonderful weekend. Do you celebrate Mother’s Day with anyone, if you care to share?

Our youngest granddaughter is getting dedicated at our oldest son’s church on Sunday & then his MIL is inviting the gang to her lovely home for a Mother’s Day meal since so many of us will be gathering & she’s got a lot of space in her place. It will probably be a long but hopefully enjoyable day.

My husband has been busy on multiple car repairs on his vehicle, he’s got 3 wheels off of it currently as he works his way through bearings, tie rods, controller arms, brakes, & some type of steering package. If the weather holds he hopes to make good headway. He’s also planning to smoke up a couple racks of ribs for us, while he’s in the backyard so much, & to share with my dad who’s birthday is also this weekend.

Busy times.

BTW, we both checked for Northern Lights last night/early this morning but have no visibility of them w/ a pretty heavy overcast. The ones I saw years ago, also in Metro Detroit, were the green kind. Most of the ones I’ve seen in Northern Michigan are the white, wispy kind. When I was a young kid my dad took me out of the Cottage on his shoulders to see the Lights & they were red, white, & blue, I believe. I’ve never seen them since with such pretty colors so I treasure that memory.

The ones I saw in Detroit years ago, looked a bit like this, though slightly less dramatic, of undulating curtains of ethereal green light mostly:

The last few times that I’ve seen them in Northern Michigan they were more like this, though wispier & just white, fingers of light appearing & disappearing with ghostly elusiveness. Most recently when we were watching them over the lake my son Josiah started singing praise songs to the Lord & it was very moving 🙂

Our firefighter/EMT son stopped by Saturday & said that he was on duty on Friday & kept looking for the Northern Lights throughout the night & never saw any. He said that “no one in Detroit saw any” Lights. I thought that maybe Hubby & I looked too late but perhaps it wouldn’t have mattered when we tried.

I’ve looked several times this evening into the night but so far haven’t seen the Aurora late Saturday into early Sunday. I’ll check again next time I let the dog out.

San Francisco is giving taxpayer-funded shots of vodka to homeless alcoholics in $5m program organizers claim ‘improves participants’ health’

Program provides beer and vodka shots to homeless alcoholics Aims to curb excessive drinking among the homeless and prevent deathsDespite criticisms about enabling addiction, officials argue it saves money 
The City of San Francisco is handing out bottles of beer, glasses of wine and shots of vodka to homeless alcoholics – and spending $5m a year on the program. 

The alcoholic drinks are served by nurses as part of the city’s ‘managed alcohol program’, which has been running for four years, as a way of taking care of vulnerable homeless people. 

The program is designed to curb the amount of alcohol homeless people drink. It still allows them some, but in a more managed way, in the hope of curbing their addiction in a controlled manner. 

Nurses assess patients and typically serve them the equivalent of 1-2 drinks between three and four times a day — handing out either 1.7 ounces of vodka or liquor (about a shot), 5 ounces of wine (1 glass) or 12 ounces of beer – about three-quarters of a pint.
 
Experts involved in the program say that it has actually helped to keep homeless alcoholics out of hospitals, jails, and even from dying.

cloning gift cards? goodness the scams are off the charts!

A Southern California man has been arrested in Gilbert in connection to a popular fraudulent gift card scheme.(MCSO)
According to court documents obtained by Arizona’s Family, workers at the Fry’s Food Store off Pecos and Higley roads called Gilbert police just after 1 p.m. on Thursday to report that a man who did not work at the store appeared to have been “restocking gift cards.”
Documents say officers arrived and found the suspect, identified as 44-year-old Chuandao Yu, who immediately handed authorities a box full of gift cards.
After being handcuffed, police searched his vehicle and reportedly found a box filled with gift cards from various stores. In total, authorities say more than 2,000 cards were seized.
Court papers say the surveillance video reviewed by detectives showed Yu putting dozens of cards back onto store shelves and that upon checking, each card had been tampered with.
Arizona’s Family has previously reported on gift card cloning scams, which have been one of the state attorney general’s top priorities.
“This is a huge problem,” Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes told On Your Side earlier this year. “They’re literally taking the cards off the shelf.

this one might have legs…there are many on the left who support Israel…

Representative Cory mills (R-FL) filed one article of impeachment against Joe Biden today, May 10, for stopping a weapons shipment to Israel. Mills argued that the president had withheld military aid from an ally in order to coerce that ally into doing as he wished – essentially what Democrats accused Donald Trump of doing to Ukraine during their first impeachment of the former president.
“As a member of the House of Representatives, it is my constitutional duty to present articles of impeachment against Joe Biden for his most recent abuse of power,” Mills said in a statement. The lawmaker argues in his single article of impeachment that Biden, using the powers of his office, “solicited ‘quid pro quo’ with the foreign government of Israel by withholding precision guided weapons shipments in order to try and extract military policy changes.”

The beauty of home schooling is the parents get to choose the curriculum used within state’s requirements for the subjects that must be taught. There are also parental controls provided with most of them. Our family uses the highly rated, secular Time4learning (T4L), but have the option to opt out for subjects in other curriculums or in the offending segments within T4L. There are a handful of offensive woke segments that we have modified in Social Studies and Language Arts.

Example: In 4th grade Social Studies over half of all American music was attributed to African Americans. They deserve some credit, but no more than any other other grouping of people. So we modified and added much of the other American music the curriculum left out. We could have chosen a parental override to ignore it all, but what was provided was a decent presentation, so we supplemented. We actually like the structure and presentations of subjects in T4L. Grandson has done well with it as his curriculum. Very user friendly for students and parents.

The Language Arts has a chapter on poetry, however, they only provide African American poetry. The content was well done, but limited to only AA. So we supplemented with poetry from other groupings of people. This included my paternal grandmother’s works, who was a published poet in Who’s Who in American Poetry from her era. So he received a more balanced presentation.

We added a separate Bible based subject from a different source as an elective.

Without being exposed to other aspects of woke public schools, Grandson #1 is now excelling and well adjusted as a person. No more exposure to Taylor Swift dominated subjects, trans questions, racism promotion, profanity or lewd comments/acts, etc. All of these are present even in primary/elementary public schools today. Grandson #2 will be exiting primary school in third grade, he is finishing first grade now. The F-bombs, bullying and sexual deviancy overtones have already started amongst those students.

I don’t understand why you would compel #2 to endure another year of pubic school [no misspelling]. I feel sorry for him already.

Parenting at the edge of communism is hard. Been there – done that. It’s like a war, where family impact in its totality has to be evaluated. Sacrifices are made. Complex calculations are required. Next year’s public teacher may be a good one. I bought an extra year in a bad district with a good teacher (she hid patriotic books in the drawers). The following year, though, we got a lefty lemon, and it took that year to MOVE. And then the new district only bought us two more good years until communism caught up again, and we bailed into home schooling, which was possible at that age without job changes.

ThanQ; I guess I understand. I’m just more of a 100% guy; if I’m gonna bother doing it, it’s full blast with afterburners.  😀 

TradeBait2

This ^^^. Major juggling act today and is situational with every family.

TradeBait2

The woke started in third grade.

To summarize: Daughter has limited time with a new baby she is nursing. I am already handling two of the four required subjects for #1. Daughter and SIL handle the other two required subjects. Wifey is handling the elective and cursive writing instruction.

#2 needs more social development with other kids his age and that environment is still better controlled than third grade. He is brilliant – school is a bit boring to him, but he needs to learn how to get along with others better. His dad is in law enforcement and made a “visit” to school to see the administration about what he knows and has learned from #2.

Daughter will be in better position to handle #1 and #2 for homeschool after next year once their baby is weaned.

Just this week I was talking to my physician about how he was schooling his four pre-college children. The youngest 3 are in public schools but the oldest (now in high school) is being home schooled by the child’s mother. When I asked what curriculum had been chosen, he mentioned a name I did not know. It was called Walden or Walton, or Waldorf. I had never heard of it. Maybe some of you here know of it.

I believe Waldorf is the one. I think I remember he said it was out of Germany.

Our three godkids did Waldorf through High School and it turned out well for them.

“Illegal Immigrants Stealing Oil From Permian Basin Near Texas Border”
Excerpts:
EXCLUSIVE — Authorities in West Texas have begun to see illegal immigrants aiding criminal networks in the stealing of truckloads of valuable oil and materials from the nation’s largest oilfields in the Permian Basin.
Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX), whose district spans 800 miles of the Texas border, organized federal and local law enforcement in the region Friday to come up with a plan of attack as the largest U.S. oilfield, the Permian Basin, continues to get hit by thieves. The matter is not only a border security matter but an energy security problem
“Truckloads of oil are being stolen from small, independent oil producers. Oilfield instruments, trucks, equipment, and even work boots and clothes have been stolen,” Coday wrote in a message. “These crimes hurt every American and smaller, independent producers especially.”
“Coday said the Mexican drug cartels had already taken over a sizable amount of Mexico’s Oil Industry the past decade.”

Once had to orate a term paper in my philosophy class that went something like this.

Put a really tall wall around the school. Those who really want to learn will find a way over it and help those get over it that find it difficult to surmount, but those will have to keep a humble attitude.  Those that don’t won’t and nor will they be eligible for welfare.  Bonus. It will build character and teamwork, beyond anything we have today. Extra bonus the teachers that want to teach go in the same way. So only those that really want to teach will teach and it behooves them to be appreciated by their students or fellow teachers. Other staff could use a side entrance. 😁

The teacher didn’t like it, but I still got an A. Class thought it was a good idea.

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.

HEAL US, LORD

In the morning, we are reminded
Of what we need to do today
We try to remain broad-minded
As we attempt to make our way

As our eyes open to a new day
We think first thoughts of You
For it is You who will guide our way
Over, above, and through

Without You we would be lost
Confused in mind, body, and soul
Through this maze we would be tossed
No way we would ever be whole

What would You have us do today
Where are we needed the most
Who needs a prayer a clearway
Nearby or at a distant coast

Be we anxious or just be concerned
About another in the mind
Whose life may suddenly be upturned 
Or it may be one in a bind 

Whatever it is the Spirit knows
For it is He who guides us 
Through many sorrows even woes
With best blessings He abides us

Inspire us Lord as we make our way
Guide us Lord in all that we do
Make this a most prosperous day
As we praise and glorify You

Not for us do we work so hard
Not for us do we normally pray
Not for us do we stand guard
But to help another make his way

Help us, Lord, to be of service
Help us, Lord, to glorify You
Help us, Lord, not to be nervous
About what it is we must do

Open our hearts and clear our minds
Open our ears wide to listen
Help us to open the spiritual blinds 
Pray for those we need to christen

Many are lost in ways unknown
They have been brought to the edge
They need to know they are not alone
They must come now off of the ledge

There is healing in the Blood of Jesus
There is healing in His mighty Word
There is healing in His love that frees us
It is by His love that we are stirred

Heal us, Lord, from all that binds us
From anything that would divide
Heal us, Lord, from all that blinds us
Help us, Lord, in You to abide

It is You in whom we find comfort
From worldly concerns of the day
From all that brings discomfort
Help us, Lord, to drive it away

Strengthen our bodies and minds
Bring peace to those around us
Bless Your people of all kinds
Let not turmoil surround us

Heal us, Lord, as only You can do
From whatever it is that ails us
Let us not be discouraged or blue
Break up the evil that assails us

Give us peace of mind, body, and soul
Help us stand strong and not falter
Give us back that which they stole
Grant our petitions left at the altar

Bless us, Lord, and heal us
From all that would keep us aback
From all adversity seal us
Protect us from ev’ry attack

Under Your wings we are sheltered
From all that could ever harm us
Under Your love we are weltered
Nothing will ever alarm us

Thank You for hearing our prayer
For guiding us on our way
For nothing could ever compare
With blessings received each day

AMEN.

This is what always happens, and what will always happen, the first time you give an inch to the government. That inch becomes the first in a thousand mile runway to nowhere.

Ford Motor Company doesn’t work for the government, the government works for the People, which includes Ford Motor Company.

If I was the CEO of Ford, I would tell the government to SHOW ME.

You look at the books, you look at the cost and expenses, you look at the sales, you look at the technology and the investment required to make your insanity a reality, and then you SHOW ME how that is possible without going bankrupt.

Go ahead.

But until you do, I’m going to run this company to make a profit and stay in business.

If you want to shut For Motor Company down because of that, that’s on you, and the whole world will be your judge.

You be the first administration in the history of America to shut down a major industry over an imaginary problem that you can neither prove nor solve.

Then I would go back to work, and ignore the corrupt government until they present a viable plan. Which will never happen, because there is no actual problem to solve, and there is no economically viable way to turn their fantasy into a reality.

Whistleblower Exposes Internal Email Suggesting Pfizer Offered “Separate and Distinct” COVID-19 Vaccines to Employees
From an email sent to Pfizer employees in Rock County, NY:

The vaccine doses to be used for this [employee] program are separate and distinct from those committed by Pfizer to governments around the world and will not impact supply to national governments in any way.

And from questioning in Australia:

Nearly half of all cancer cases are linked to obesity

The study of more than four million adults, who were tracked for decades, found excess weight could be fuelling more than 30 types of the disease.

Experts said the findings, which will be presented at the European Congress on Obesity in Venice, were “groundbreaking”, showing a timebomb ahead.

Health charities urged ministers to act on the “wake-up call,” with obesity already estimated to cost the country almost £100 billion a year, including £19 billion in NHS costs.

They’re going to have to battle the women who insist “I’m fat and I’m healthy,” as well as those who are trying to get the word “obesity” removed from medical diagnoses. Not to mention the ones who insist their being fat is beautiful.

I would have had so much fun with that scenario… I honestly don’t think I could have resisted… I’m sure of it… it’s too much fun not to! 😂 🤣 😂

Nutcases NEED to be smacked down.

Secretly, I think most of them want to be smacked down. They’re just testing, to see what they can get away with. If no one smacks them down or calls them out, then they keep pushing the envelope until someone does.

This is literally how the group of friends I grew up with kept each other in check. It’s what we did, all the time 😂

Smacking nutcases down is the only way to preserve a cohesive shared reality. If everyone just resigns and retreats to their own corner, then the lunatics determine what the shared reality will be.

And we all see how that turned out.

Think of it like the old Whack-a-Mole game.

When they pop their heads up and say something crazy, you whack ’em.

Mock, interrogate, challenge, etc., whatever works best in response to what they’ve actually said. If what they have said is just foolish idiocy, then mockery or derision usually works, and the others will follow your lead, once they see it’s safe.

If what they have said is irrational, question them in such a way that clearly exposes that irrationality to everyone else, and then mock. The others will follow, when they see it’s safe.

If what they have said opens themselves up to challenging them to prove it, then do that — and when they can’t, mock. The others will follow.

The fact that it’s so much fun is just bonus motivation 😁

I remember that, during the Dungeons & Dragons role playing games era, there was a store at a nearby strip mall that was basically just an open room, with card tables set up, and there were people (adults) standing around every table, playing those games.

We went to the mall for the video arcade nearby.

We played D&D within our group of friends, but it never occurred to us to go somewhere public and play against adults. They seemed to take it very seriously.

We took it less seriously. Sort of like Monty Hall / Mad Magazine Dungeons & Dragons 😂

Whoever was Dungeon Master would always go off script, the more outrageous (and therefore hilarious) the better.

Now that I think of it, we had a lot of laughs that most people playing Dungeons and Dragons didn’t get to experience 😂🤣😂

My Son-In-Law plays D & D but I think it is online w/ long-distance friends. Some of these people came to MI for their wedding, & that might have been the First Time they were physically in the same place. I had college friends that played D & D but I never have (yet).

Valerie Curren

I had heard that back in the day, fwiw. I frankly don’t know. I checked out a young adult illustrated book that went over many of the “typical” D & D characters & some of the “realms” (if that’s the right word), & I could see how aspects of how the game Could be played might make some Christians uncomfortable, however.

Valerie Curren

It sounds rather fascinating. I tried to engage my SIL on the topic, after reading that book (I think I’d brought it to their house on one of my babysitting jaunts, so it was on my mind) but he didn’t seem to want to discuss it much w/ me. Generation gap, or perhaps philosophical gap. He was raised by pretty lefty parents who came to Christ pretty late in life & didn’t have a more defined biblical worldview foundation like the one we attempted to instill in our kids. I think he thinks I’m a rather Conservative Christian Conspiracy Theorist/nut-job, as least based on previous covid &/or cultural/political conversations…sigh…

My husband doesn’t really enjoy playing games very much so it’s unlikely he’d Ever want to play D & D. Plus he had some very negative “darkness” encounters in the spirit world when a young Christian so would likely never want to veer anywhere near where that “line” might be…

My daughter has played some D & D w/ her husband, may have been her boyfriend or fiance at the time, but she’s not really into it.

I expect I’d enjoy the imaginative side of it & the creativity & perhaps out-of-the-box thinking it promotes. However, the learning curve might be prohibitive, especially if no-one in my “circle” would want to play w/ me 🙂

Have to find the D & D AI tutor & “safe” online competitors that can put up w/ newbieness 🙂

The thing about classic D&D (own white box set + Chainmail), is it’s more like improvisational theater than a regular game. You would better prepare for it by watching “Whose Line Is It?” reruns than playing board games.

Well they’re not go to defeat themselves, and they’re not going to stop what they’re doing because of words, no matter how eloquently you might arrange and present them.

If you want to stop people who don’t care about sanity or reason or reality or rule of law, you have to stop doing things that don’t work, and start doing things that do work.

Physically impeding people from carrying out actions that are detrimental to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is one thing that works.

Historically speaking, it also happens to be the only thing that actually works, during the terminal stage of the destruction of a society.
