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.”

A Table Prepared

In Psalm 23:5, King David says to the Lord, “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies,” portraying his close relationship to God as an honored dinner guest of a generous and capable host. As a gracious host, the Lord attends to David’s every need, showering him with personal care, abundant goodness, protection from his enemies, and eternal blessings.

David had many adversaries, but in the presence of the Lord, seated at His table, they posed no threat because David had guest-rights with the Lord. In the ancient East, a host was obligated to safeguard his visitors from all enemies at all costs.

Psalm 23 begins, “The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.” The psalm’s central theme—that David lacks nothing—is reinforced through every line. The word my underscores the intimacy of David’s up-close relationship with God. David acknowledges that God is always with Him, looking out for his good, even in the darkest “valley of the shadow of death” (verse 4). Even in the most challenging circumstances—“in the presence of my enemies” (verse 5)—David lacks nothing because His God is with him, supplying his every need and looking out for his welfare.

David’s assertion, “You prepare a table before me,” is equivalent to Paul’s declaration, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). This theme of God’s constant provision and protection echoes in Paul’s prayer for the Ephesians: “I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God” (Ephesians 3:16–19, NLT).

When we are invited to someone’s house for dinner, we cannot open the host’s refrigerator and grab whatever we want to eat. We depend on the host to place dinner on the table for us. We wait to be offered food and drink. Thus, the statement, “You prepare a table before me,” highlights David’s dependence on God.

The same God who “spread a table in the wilderness” for the children of Israel by providing daily manna for them to eat (Exodus 16:15; cf. Psalm 78:19) would supply all the provisions and help King David would need. David’s confidence in God dovetails with the encouragement in Hebrews 4:16: “So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most” (NLT).

God (the Host) welcomes His guest (David) to a feast already prepared and spread out for him on the table. As it was for David, it is for all believers who accept the invitation to dine at the Lord’s table (Isaiah 25:6–9; Matthew 22:1–14; Luke 13:29–30; Revelation 19:9; 21:2–4). Like David, we depend on God to provide our material and physical needs (Psalm 104:27); we lean on Him for understanding and direction in life (Proverbs 3:5–6); we rest in Him through prayer (Philippians 4:6; 1 Peter 5:7); and, most importantly, we depend on God for our salvation (Ephesians 2:8–9).

You prepare a table before me means God’s “divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness” (2 Peter 1:3). Yet it’s not only in this life that God meets our needs. God is our gracious and bountiful benefactor for both our bodies and souls for all time and eternity.

I’m my life, I’ve never heard a politician talk as honest as Trump is talking right now.

This is so unbelievable. This is historic.

Does anyone else understand how special this is?


Let’s see Joe Biden have a rally in the exact location in New Jersey as Trump did tonight.

He wouldn’t draw 100 people.


Trump is the best comedian in the USA. I’ve been laughing my ass off for 30 minutes.

Trump 2024.


Trump should campaign more in blue states.


Briben attendees reach 100. That has got to include prestitutes, SS and Briben staff.

pat frederick

you forget…many of his supporters have multiple personalities…lol…they’re included in the count. (to not count them would be racist or something)

Then he says, “You can’t use the word 💩,” LOL.


That’s a twofer funny.

Dang, wish I saw it. On the road.

Likely that will be used a few more times.  :wpds_smile: 


It was a good rally. He was peppy and enthused. One of his best assets is being genuine. He never comes off as fake

80,000+ people show up at a Trump rally in a small town in New Jersey.

If you’re a Democrat, it’s time to panic.

Julie Kelly’s Substack:

Judge Cannon Puts Jack Smith on Trial
She covers all the info we’ve seen lately in her X posts, including this:

“New evidence, obtained via requests pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act reveals that politically motivated operatives in the Biden Administration and the National Archives and Records Administration (“NARA”) began this crusade against President Trump in 2021,” Trump’s lawyers wrote. “The FOIA releases, coupled with other evidence…reflect close participation in the investigation by NARA and Biden Administration components such as the White House Counsel’s Office, as well as senior officials at DOJ and FBI. These revelations are disturbing but not surprising.”

Hundreds of pages of exhibits show emails and meetings between archive officials and Biden’s general counsel’s office throughout the second half of 2021. Gary Stern, the archives general counsel, further disclosed in an August 2021 email that he had had “informal” talks with unidentified DOJ officials to seek advice on how to prepare a criminal referral against Trump for refusing to turn over government records.

Smith, naturally, denies the allegations, claiming defense attorneys were advancing “speculative, unsupported, and false theories of political bias and animus.”

Don Jr managed to visit Peter Navaro in jail.
Apparently is in good spirit and cannot wait to get on the Trump 2024 campaign trail.
He will be out just before the convention.
Unfortunately, the DOJ refuses to let him go before his time is up, although he is only there for a misdemeanor, which is still under appeal and is not even scheduled yet.

He Is extremely gratefully for the support he gets from ordinary citizens.

pat frederick

so back in the basement he goes…dem convention might be ON LINE


That’s guaranteed to keep RFK jr in the race.

IOW, it virtually guarantees 400+ electoral votes for DJT.

Pass the popcorn, please. And get my broker to buy more popcorn futures.


Oh C’mon…that’s ridiculous. The rabid pets that they created and love? No. They don’t want the optics of Americans staying away from the Dem party.


A live convention is used to motivate the voter base. It’s a chance to present the candidate as the warrior that is needed, now, and to get people excited. There is no substitute for a live convention. I think they know there is zero enthusiasm for JB and that the convention would be a disaster, especially in contrast to Trump.

I don’t know if they’re going to pull off some shenanigans with replacing JB, but maybe that would be easier to do online. But that would not engender excitement for his replacement.


With an online component they can boost the participation by manipulating the numbers of viewers. That way when the vote counts are manufactured they can say that people love Biden..they’re content at home

pat frederick

good observation!

2 illegals (including one on the terror watch list) try to storm Quantico in a box truck.

Biden chose to open up the border to the invaders of the world. And they’re coming. Including Muslims on terror watch lists. A number have been caught, others have gotten through and since Biden insists on releasing virtually every border invader into the country, they’re free to do what they please once they get in.
And what are they doing?

Two people inside a box truck tried to force their way onto Quantico Marine Corps Base.

After being pressed by Potomac Local News, base officials today said that in the early morning hours of Friday, May 3, 2024, the two men drove a truck up to the base’s main gate on Fuller Road, just outside Dumfries, told guards that they were contractors for Amazon and were making a delivery to Quantico Town’s post office. The town is located inside the military base.

The men did not provide any approved access credentials, and police determined the vehicle had no affiliation with the base, so officers directed the truck to a holding area for standard vetting procedures. “One of the military police officers noticed the driver, ignoring the direct instructions of the officers, continued to move the vehicle past the holding area and attempted to access…Quantico,” said base spokesman Capt. Micheal Curtis.

Officers then used vehicle denial barriers, or roadblocks that were used to keep out cars, which prevented the two men from traveling further onto the base. The occupants were detained and eventually turned over to ICE, and no one was injured, said Curtis.

Multiple sources report one of the individuals inside the truck is a Jordanian foreign national who recently crossed the southern border into the U.S., and that one of the occupants is on the U.S. terrorist watch list. Quantico did not confirm this information.

No one will be in any hurry to confirm something that makes the administration look terrible.
Would a normal Amazon delivery driver be willing to risk his life by ignoring instructions from military officers just to make that delivery?
No Amazon driver is that dedicated.


I think most would be shocked to see what Amazon is hiring on as flex crew.

I currently go out of my way to avoid any sort of early or fast delivery now. I would much rather wait an extra day than get called at 4AM by someone at the gate that can’t figure out the code.

That is where these flex people are often used. They use their own vehicles, can’t figure out how to open a gate, don’t or barely speak English and 80% of the time work in pairs doing the job of one. And yes, I’ve written about my suspicions before about some of these paired drivers scoping out the area and I’d not at all be surprised if we start getting a rash of missing children that had been waiting at school bus stops with all these unvetted delivery drivers making the rounds.

we’re out in the boonies so we never ever get 1 or 2 day delivery. and it’s only ups drivers that come out this way. we have a delivery box installed at the bottom of our 1/2 mile driveway and they are very good about locking it. the only thing to break into the box? a bear once. (got it on the trail cam) he ripped the door OFF the box, circumventing the lock…LOL all to get at a box of rubber ducks i bought to race on the pond. he managed to rip the box open, and half chew a duck before he decided it didn’t taste good.


The joys of rustic living!



Put that on the internet It would get a million hits !


Agreed. One has another suspicion about the Amazon “fast / early delivery” drivers — they may be scoping the neighborhood to see if anyone is at home, to see if there are security cameras by the front door, etc.

Since this is one of several incidents like this you’d think it would be time to declare the border closed and the FIB to stop pursuing J6ers and concentrate on terrorists but….we know this won’t happen.
What is the purpose of all of these gate crashing events?

Carlos Osweda: A couple of days ago I wrote that the Democrats are implementing the Algerian Strategy in the United States. — LINK

A refresher:

During the Algerian Civil War of 1991-2002, the Algerian government helped the Armed Islamic Group or GIA (Groupe Islamique Armé), the most violent terrorists in human history.

The GIA’s motto was “No agreement, no truce, no dialogue.”

All they did was mass murder civilians in night raids. They cut the throats of entire villages and dumped them into wells.

What the GIA wanted was preemptive nationwide surrender. The government helped the GIA for almost eleven years, until the Algerian populace agreed to support the government.

Only then did the government take on and destroy the GIA.

The Democrats are doing the same thing here. 

All over the country, the most violent criminals are being released.

Violent felonies such as killing a police officer while resisting arrest are being decriminalized.

Cash bail is being abolished.

Incarceration itself is on the verge of being abolished. 

I said that the Democrats are even IMPORTING violent criminals.

And now we have the proof.

H. R. 5383. The New Way Forward Act.

Cosponsored by AOC and Ilhan Omar.

It not only abolishes any form of punishment for illegal-alien criminals, it forces the government to REPATRIATE criminals we deported.

[I have mentioned, that the Cabal NEVER GIVES UP! Once they want a law in place, they will persist for decades if necessary to get their way. The Federal Reserve Act, as originally written and the Food Safet Modernization act are two examples.– GC

The bill is over 4000 pages long.

I’ll just post the titles. 

TITLE I—End Mandatory Detention and Require Probable Cause for Arrest

SEC. 101. Phase-out of private for-profit detention facilities and use of jails. 

TITLE II—Statute of Limitations

SEC. 201. Time for commencing removal proceedings.

(After an illegal is ordered deported, release them, and if they evade custody for five years, the deportation order expires. Even for murderers.) 

TITLE III—Limit Criminal-System-to-Removal Pipeline

SEC. 301. Criminal offenses and immigration laws.

(Eliminate aggravated felonies as a reason for deportation.) 

TITLE IV—Restore Judicial Discretion and End Removal Without Due Process

SEC. 401. Immigration procedural changes.

(Give immigration judges the power to vacate all deportation orders, regardless of the conviction.) 

TITLE V—Prohibition against Performance of Immigration Officer Functions by State and Local Officers and Employees

SEC. 501. Local enforcement.

(Make it a federal crime for state, county, and local law enforcement to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.) 

TITLE VI—Decriminalize Migration

SEC. 601. Repealing migration criminal laws.

(Abolish all American immigration laws. Eliminate the borders.) 

TITLE VII—Right To Come Home

SEC. 701. Reconsidering and reopening immigration cases.

(Force the federal government to transport previously deported illegal aliens back to the United States.) 

The New Way Forward Act will make it impossible to prevent illegal immigration, impossible to incarcerate illegal-alien criminals, and impossible to deport anybody for any reason.

This is the first nationwide attempt to implement the Algerian Strategy. 

The Democrats’ plan is to get a president in office who will enact the New Way Forward Act by fiat, and then we’ll be absolutely overwhelmed with illegals and cartel members and career criminals…..

There is a lot more.

Think about the new law they just tried to pass. Sounds a lot like this one. One liners added to other bills are used to modify the law as originally passed until they get the law back to the original. G Edward Griffin mentioned this about the Federal Reserve act.


Ohmy gosh thank you for all of that..


The purpose is to probe the enemy’s defenses and to see how they react.

Gail Combs

Any bets ICE just turns them loose again?


Let’s add to FIB’s list of government sponsored criminal activities. From Revolver,

Hey FIB – I’m going to our Christian church today to praise the Lord and fellowship with other amazing right wingers who believe in loving one another as well as Jesus.

California Democrats Turn on Gov Newsom as $20 Billion in Homeless Council Funding Goes Missing
California Democrats have begun turning against Governor Gavin Newsom after $20 billion in taxpayer money allocated for tackling homelessness in the state has gone missing.
Gov. Newsom’s California Interagency Council on Homelessness (CICH) is unable to account for billions of dollars in funding over the past five years.
The homeless council has no record of where the $20B has been spent, nor can Newsom’s administration provide any evidence or examples of where the program has been successful in tackling homelessness in the states.


Just to make that number a bit easier to grasp, $20 billion is


Twenty thousand people could be made into millionaires with that money.

We ain’t talking ‘shrinkage’ here, boys and girls.

We’re talking industrial grade theft.

Absolutely. Did it go to CHINA???

Ah that’s no problem, they probably used it to see where the billions went for the high speed rail system to nowhere.
Their solution will be to appointment a committee to look into it, which will cost another boat load of $$$ to tell everyone we don’t know what happened but it won’t happen again. 😂

You’re reading my mind ! Exactly

i thought maybe the reparations council stole it…you know operating expenses



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.

The trials and tribulations of a mother;
Neither begin nor end at birth nor bother;
At conception, God blesses the tiny seed;
Yielding to God, mother and child accede!

With Faith, Hope, and Love – gifts given by God;
The journey toward life by which we are awed;
Is fraught with twists and turns and discomfort;
Till joy supplants pain – and rewards the effort!

Many are the sorrows of motherhood;
Mary, His Mother – at the cross she stood;
Pierced through the heart with unparallelled pain;
From her sorrow, His Glory she would gain!

A mother’s pain is suffered in silence;
On God’s great love must be her reliance;
She understands not the will of the Lord;
So she searches for answers in His Word!

She knows that Jesus suffered not in vain;
She understands His suffering and His pain;
She recognizes His gift to all of mankind;
And treasures His gift in her heart and mind!

She remembers His mother at the cross;
She can relate perfectly to her loss;
Whatever she suffers cannot compare;
To the suffering Mary had to forbear!

Be not discouraged – oh, mother of Mine;
Be thee encouraged – child of the divine;
Seek thee thy comfort and love from on high;
Give no credence to the sorrowful sigh!

Trust that your child and you are in My care;
Not a moment goes by when I am not there;
Standing beside you with angelic aid;
My death on the cross was the price I paid!

Be neither afraid nor fearful – for I am here; 
To help and comfort – to Me, you are dear; 
Give Me your sorrow and distress this day; 
And I will be with you all of the way! 

Remember your child is My child as well;
Put your trust in Me – your fears I’ll dispel;
Rest easy in My arms and loving care;
And be sure in your heart that I am there!

D01: 4/23/2013

There’s many of them around here, and there’re definitely not quality built homes. Built very quickly with cheap (probably illegal) workers. The paint on the outside is fading already after only two years.

Seems fair to me – crappy product paid for with crappy money.

This reminds me of CHINESE Construction!

Are NEW Chinese buildings really FALLING DOWN?

Ghost Cities in China. Real estate bubbles. We’ve toured Chinese ghost towns in the past, but this time we visit a high end neighborhood of villas that were only built 3 years ago, and were shocked to see the state that they were in. We were surrounded by new buildings, that were completely empty. This is the state of real estate in China. 11 minutes

Yes, I’ve seen that video before, it’s insane. Trillions of dollars thrown down ratholes for ghost cities that will not (can’t) ever be inhabited.

Pure corruption.

If I understand correctly, the chyneeze invest in real estate (high rise condos) because they don’t trust the banking system or their gov’t, so real estate is their de facto savings system.

So everyone invests in real estate that they never even visit (too far away). The construction companies put in minimal effort, do everything quarter-assed (not even half-assed). They don’t even bother to complete a lot of the construction projects.

There is no accountability, and apparently nobody checks on their investment, so it just keeps going in relative perpetuity, using real estate investment like a retirement plan, until eventually it will crash.

All that work, to save money, to invest in a corrupt scheme that enriched the construction companies and banks and corrupt gov’t officials, and the people who invested are left with nothing, and no way to get their money back.

This is why many think the chyneeze will be turning to Bitcoin next as a safe haven / escape (which is what Bitcoin was originally designed to be, in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, but few people care). Asia is already far more invested in cryptocurrencies than the West, I think the numbers are around 75% to 25%.

There is a finite amount of Bitcoin that will ever exist, it’s the only commodity on planet earth that is finite, that is outside the fiat currency system, and is beyond the control of any government.

Nobody cares.

It’s like being on the Titanic, and the ship is going down, and life boats are right there, but everybody laughs at them and says they’re not life boats, they’re magic internet money 😂

What do you do?

What can you do?

I have a small amount of Bitcoin but one of its major shortcomings is that it cannot be readily exchanged for goods and services because, although it has global application, there are limited points of barter exchange. Second because it is digital it does not lend itself to easy exchange at the ‘mom and pop’ level of commerce. The same could be said of gold and silver or fine art of course.

These things may be worked out over time, but the government has tremendous ability to obstruct and de-legitimize cryptos by their regulatory powers.

Governments are good at two things: 1) inefficiency, and 2) regulatory monopoly. Governments have demonstrated to my satisfaction that they are completely unworthy of trust and are unlikely to ever give up their money monopoly.


Wise post.


I don’t really see how Bitcoin becomes a daily use ‘currency’ because of Gresham’s Law, which is that bad money drives out good money.

This was demonstrated when U.S. coins lost their silver content in the 1960s.

Everybody saved the pre-1965 dimes and quarters, and used / spent the zinc-clad (or whatever they’re made of) garbage, which had effectively zero metallic value.

So the ‘bad money’ (zinc-clad quarters and dimes) drove out the ‘good money’ (pre-1965 quarters and dimes with silver content, which people hoarded).

I don’t know why Bitcoin would not be the same way, i.e., people will save in (appreciating) Bitcoin and transact in (depreciating) fiat.

This is because as fiat continues to be debased / inflated, Bitcoin will continue to go up, as measured in fiat dollar terms. Going by history, Bitcoin compounds at around 40% per year.

So for example, $10K of Bitcoin today becomes $14K next year. That $14K becomes $19,600 the following year. That $19.6K becomes $27,440 the following year.

Why would anyone spend their Bitcoin, when it is going up by 40% per year? That would likely be their best performing investment, by far.

So they wouldn’t sell it, they would hang onto it for appreciation.

But what people could (and I think would) do, is what people in countries with hyper-inflating currencies do. They only convert Bitcoin into their domestic fiat currency on a daily as-needed basis. That way their savings (in Bitcoin) are constantly going up (as their hyper-inflating fiat currency value continues to plummet), and they only use their fiat currency on an immediate-use basis.

Nobody holds any substantial amount of fiat currency in countries with hyper-inflating fiat currencies, because the purchasing power is dropping so fast.

So the idea is to hold savings / wealth in Bitcoin, and only convert Bitcoin into domestic fiat currency for the specific amount you need to spend, on the same day as you intend to spend it, so that you have spent the domestic fiat currency before it has a chance to lose any more purchasing power.

Meanwhile, your savings that is kept in Bitcoin continues to go up, against the falling value of the domestic fiat currency.

In larger numbers, this could easily be self-sustaining.

Suppose you can live on $40K per year.

And suppose you have $100,000 in Bitcoin.

If Bitcoin goes up by 40% per year, that $100,000 becomes $140,000. You spend that $40K throughout the year by liquidating small amounts of Bitcoin as needed (for groceries, rent, mortgage, car payment, whatever).

The value of Bitcoin (as measured in domestic fiat currency terms) is going up the whole time, compounding at 40% annually, and you are spending $40K annually but not all at once, only gradually, as needed.

So the $100K starting amount in Bitcoin is continually replenishing itself.

If you start with $150K in Bitcoin, and it compounds at 40% annually, and you still only use $40K, then the $150K in Bitcoin becomes $210K, minus your $40K annual spend, leaves $170K to compound at 40% the following year, resulting in $238K. That $238K + 40% = $333K, and you spend $40K leaving $293K to compound at 40% the following year.

The idea is to find something that appreciates faster (after taxes) than the domestic fiat currency depreciates.

The thing that has a track record of doing that consistently, better than any other asset, over any 2-3 year time period since 2009, is Bitcoin.

I don’t think the criminal U.S. gov’t will easily give up its monopoly on world reserve worthless fiat currency.

The creator of Bitcoin didn’t think they would give up easily either.

That’s why the creator of Bitcoin designed it to be permissionless and decentralized.

The gov’t can ‘ban’ it, but the gov’t cannot ‘stop’ it, because there is no CEO to arrest, there is no headquarters to surround and storm with SWAT teams, there is no board of directors to be coerced or blackmailed or intimidated.

All of the pressure points that tyrants and criminal organizations (governments) commonly use to force compliance are absent with Bitcoin.

And that may be the most beautiful thing in this whole big wide world, something which the biggest mafias on the planet (governments) can’t stop or steal.

Because ultimately, gov’t power (and the 100% guaranteed abuse of same) is the most dangerous thing on earth to humanity, and always has been.

Well the good news is they’re not zinc.

And they do have some intrinsic value, but obviously not as much as the silver did (and does).

The outer layers of the clad coinage are 75% copper, 25% nickel (yes, even though they don’t look red they’re mostly copper); this is the same alloy used in the entire five cent piece. The inner layer is copper. This over-complicated thing was done so vending machines calibrated for silver would accept the coins.

Nickel and copper aren’t dirt cheap so the coins still have some intrinsic value. And it won’t be so long before we have the situation where they cost more to make than their face value. We are already there for the nickel and cent.

The cent IS mostly zinc…absolute shit…covered in a thin layer of copper. But even THAT disc-o-shit is worth more than a cent now.

Robert Baker,

I remember when FDR CONFISCATED GOLD held by American citizens and gave it to the Federal Reserve.

The next step was the UK grabbed the US dollars sent to rebuild Europe after WWII and DEMANDED GOLD in exchange. This is why Nixon closed the gold window.

What is to stop the US government from either confiscating or making the ownership of bitcoin illegal? After all they did it to gold. It is why I bought gold jewelry when ever I could.

Congressman McFadden on the Federal Reserve Corporation
Remarks in Congress, 1934

McFadden was later assassinated. It took three tries but they killed him.

….”In 1913, before the Senate Banking and Currency Committee, Mr. Alexander Lassen made the following statement: “The whole scheme of the Fed with its commercial paper is an impractical, cumbersome machinery- is simply a cover to secure the privilege of issuing money, and to evade payment of as much tax upon circulation as possible and then control the issue and maintain, instead of reducing interest rates. It will prove to the advantage of the few and the detriment of the people. It will mean continued shortage of actual money and further extension of credits, for when there is a shortage of money people have to borrow to their cost.’ “A few days before the Fed passed, Senator Root denounced the Fed as an outrage on our liberties. He predicted: ‘Long before we wake up from our dream of prosperity through an inflated currency, our gold- which alone could have kept us from catastrophe- will have vanished and no rate of interest will tempt it to return.’

“If ever a prophecy came true, that one did.

“The Fed became law the day before Christmas Eve, in the year 1913, and shortly afterwards, the German International bankers, Kuhn, Loeb and Co. sent one of their partners here to run it….

Mr. Chairman, when you hold a $10.00 Fed Note in your hand, you are holding apiece of paper which sooner or later is going to cost the United States Government $10.00 in gold (unless the Government is obliged to go off the gold standard). …

“On April 27, 1932, the Fed outfit sent $750,000 belonging to American bank depositors in gold to Germany. A week later another $300,000 in gold was shipped to Germany. About the middle of May $12,000,000 in gold was shipped to Germany by the Fed. Almost every week there is a shipment of gold to Germany. These shipments are not made for profit on the exchange since the German marks are blow parity with the dollar.

“Mr. Chairman, I believe that the National Bank depositors of these United States have a right to know what the Fed are doing with their money. There are millions of National Bank depositors in the Country who do not know that a percentage of every dollar they deposit in a Member Bank of the Fed goes automatically to American Agents of the foreign banks and that all their deposits can be paid away to foreigners without their knowledge or consent by the crooked machinery of the Fed and the questionable practices of the Fed….

  :wpds_arrow:  Great Britain, Partner in Blackmail

“Mr. Chairman, the Fed has offered to collect the British claims in full from the American public by trickery and corruption, if Great Britain will help to conceal its crimes. The British are shielding their agents, the Fed, because they do not wish that system of robbery to be destroyed here. They wish it to continue for their benefit! By means of it, Great Britain has become the financial mistress of the world. She has regained the position she occupied before the World War.

“For several years she has been a silent partner in the business of the Fed. Under threat of blackmail, or by their bribery, or by their native treachery to the people of the United States, the officials in charge of the Fed unwisely gave Great Britain immense gold loans running into hundreds of millions of dollars. They did this against the law! Those gold loans were not single transactions. They gave Great Britain a borrowing power in the United States of billions. She squeezed billions out of this Country by means of her control of the Fed.

“As soon as the Hoover Moratorium was announced, Great Britain moved to consolidate her gains. After the treacherous signing away of American rights at the 7-power conference at London in July, 1931, which put the Fed under the control of the Bank of International Settlements, Great Britain began to tighten the hangman’s noose around the neck of the United States.

“She abandoned the gold standard and embarked on a campaign of buying up the claims of foreigners against the Fed in all parts of the world. She has now sent her bailiff, Ramsey MacDonald, here to get her war debt to this country canceled. But she has a club in her hands! She has title to the gambling debts which the corrupt and dishonest Fed incurred abroad.

“Ramsey MacDonald, the labor party deserter, has come here to compel the President to sign on the dotted line, and that is what Roosevelt is about to do! Roosevelt will endeavor to conceal the nature of his action from the American people. But he will obey the International Bankers and transfer the war debt that Great Britain should pay to the American people, to the shoulders of the American taxpayers…


  :wpds_arrow: “The Prime Minister of England came here for money! He came here to collect cash!

“He came here with Fed Currency and other claims against the Fed which England had bought up in all parts of the world. And he has presented them for redemption in gold.

“Mr. Chairman, I am in favor of compelling the Fed to pay their own debts. I see no reason why the general public should be forced to pay the gambling debts of the International Bankers….


In very hard times jewelry and gold are not that valuable. My mother got a loaf of bread for expensive jewelry. People take advantage for the plight of others.
In Germany people bartend valuables for little food. What we think of valuable now is not when when everything crashes.

This is hard-earned wisdom–TY


“What is to stop the US government from either confiscating or making the ownership of bitcoin illegal? After all they did it to gold.”


They probably will make it illegal, at some point, if Trump doesn’t save the country first. Trump is on the record for supporting Bitcoin, he is accepting donations in crypto, and I read last night that his campaign is being advised on crypto by the owner of Bitcoin Magazine, whose goal is to raise $100 million in crypto for the Trump campaign.

The crypto industry is strongly motivated to help DJT understand crypto, and as he becomes more familiar with it, he will recognize how crypto is the escape hatch to break free of the global central bank fiat currency enslavement scheme.

But suppose they tried to confiscate it.

How would they do it?

It’s not physical, it resides on the blockchain. The only way to access it is by your seed phrase (code). Only you have the code.

Can they torture it out of you?


Can they go house to house, and torture it out of 150+ million Americans?


It’s simply not practical, and if they started to do it, they would look like the 3rd world totalitarian dictators they are, and inspire a revolt.

They can’t know everyone who has it, and they can’t take it because it isn’t physical, and they can’t access it to seize it without torture, and they can’t torture everybody.

That’s not by accident, the people who designed Bitcoin were keenly aware of the way government and power and corruption works, and designed it to be unstoppable.

chyna and several other countries have already tried to ban it and make it illegal.

When chyna banned it, all of the miners (except those who remained underground) moved to mining friendly countries, and it was the equivalent of an instant ‘brain drain’ in the chyna crypto industry.

They lost the advantage. It was like making guns illegal when they were first invented. Then only their enemies would have guns.

Brilliant 😂

Banning Bitcoin would be like the U.S. making the Internet illegal in the mid 1990s.

It wouldn’t have stopped the Internet, it would just cause all of the tech companies to move overseas to Internet-friendly countries, and those foreign countries would become the beneficiaries of those world changing technologies, instead of ours.

This is the dilemma for the politicians. They want to maintain control of the reserve currency, because everything is about power, and power is money (and vice versa).

But if they drive crypto away from America, then other countries will be the beneficiaries, and America (which they don’t care about) and themselves (who they do care about) will miss out.

So they want to walk a tight-rope, where they can CONTROL crypto without banning it.

In my best Mission Impossible recording voice, “Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to deny them that control.”

The government does not need to ban crypto; they need to control it just as you say. All the government has to do is ban the use of crypto for commercial transactions. They can control blockchain to use for authentication of official records but not allow its use to buy bread. One simple way is to ask any company that sells a product to attest on their tax return that they made no transaction where their product was paid for by a crypto not approved by the government. To answer falsely gives the state the legal right to punish the business. After what you saw with the pandemic response do you honestly believe that they would not do that?


“After what you saw with the pandemic response do you honestly believe that they would not do that?”


I’m sure they would, if anyone besides Trump is in office.

But it wouldn’t stop people from using it for their own purposes, like investment and as a store of value.

Suppose you are in Venezuela, or some other 3rd world banana republic coming to a town near you.

Suppose you had a nest egg, a passport and the opportunity to fly the coop before the Iron Curtain comes down.

You can’t take more than $10K cash with you through the airport, and even that much is going to result in an interrogation and possible seizure.

You can’t take gold bars with you through the airport.

But whether you have $11,000 dollars, or $5 million dollars, or $50 billion dollars, if it’s on the blockchain (Bitcoin), you can walk right through any airport, go to any destination in the world, and immediately access your wealth.

You don’t need permission or approval from anyone. There is no gatekeeper.

They can freeze your brokerage assets. They can freeze your bank accounts. They can freeze anything that is part of their system.

Every possible escape hatch from their prison is very intentionally locked. Like locking the fire doors inside a movie theater. You’re trapped.

That’s what it means to be a so-called ‘free’ American, in the 21st century.

Then came Bitcoin.

They can’t freeze your Bitcoin access.

Escape hatch activated.

Prison door swung wide open.

So far, not very many prisoners have noticed.

But most of them didn’t (and still don’t) realize they are prisoners in the first place.

“I remember when FDR CONFISCATED GOLD held by American citizens and gave it to the Federal Reserve.”


I have read that only about 50% of Americans who had gold actually turned it in, the rest kept it hidden.

But People’s trust in authority and government was astronomical back then, at least compared to now.

Today, practically nobody on any side of any aisle believes the government is anything other than corrupt.

In that environment, any attempt to confiscate anything is to expose that the government is nothing more than a street thug, which unites the People against the corrupt government.

Valerie Curren

When we first met some of my mom’s birth family in person, on her birth-mother’s side, one of the stories they told us was of a birth-grandmother, or great-grandmother burying gold in her cellar, presumably to hide it from the confiscators!


When a government steals your money, by definition, you are no longer a free person living in a free country.

Valerie Curren

100% 🙁


That Horton crapola is going up all over east TN. They buy tracks of ground and throw them together. Most around here are cheap vinyl sided. Bare minimum meeting building codes.

The first major windstorm comes and you will see the siding falling off. All sorts of electrical and plumbing issues. Use the cheapest HVAC’s they can get their hands on. As a result the utility bills are crazy high. Mostly hispanic illegals or legals building them. probably will end up be. ing mostly hispanics living in them down the road .

Planned obsolescence and future slums.

Brave and Free

Exactly same hear, with retirees mixed in. Everyone mostly on fixed incomes. Very few will be able to keep up with the home maintenance. It’s becoming increasingly evident in the 2-3 year old neighborhoods already. D R Horton are by far the worst. Just had this discussion with the DW, these developments will be the new slums in about 5-10 years or less for sure.

Thanks, Carl!

Please just make a special “non-daily” post at your earliest convenience, or whenever you feel like it might have maximum impact!

Sometimes people try to post additional “non-daily” articles at the following times, but I do want to stress that posts are welcome ANY time.

  • early in the morning (3AM, 6AM, 9AM) (Though see below)
  • noon
  • evening (6PM)
  • just BEFORE a new daily appears (10-11:30 PM)

The reason people generally don’t post right after a daily goes out, is so that the daily will stay at the top of the blog, during the morning rush hours when people get on the site and start posting news items on whatever post is “on top”.

So please – do the article, or any other, whenever you feel like it! No need to wait for a daily!
