2024·05·25 Joe Biden Didn’t Win Daily Thread

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

January 6 Tapes Reminder

After the first release, we were supposed to get more, every week.

As far as I know it hasn’t happened.

Speaker Johnson, please follow through!

A Caution

Just remember…we might replace the RINO candidates. (Or we might not. The record is mixed even though there is more MAGA than there used to be.) But that will make no difference in the long run if the party officials, basically the Rhonna McDaniels (or however that’s spelled–I suspect it’s RINO), don’t get replaced.

State party chairs, vice chairs, secretaries and so on, and the same at county levels, have huge influence on who ultimately gets nominated, and if these party wheelhorses are RINOs, they will work tirelessly to put their own pukey people on the ballot. In fact I’d not be surprised if some of our “MAGA” candidates are in fact, RINO plants, encouraged to run by the RINO party leadership when they realized that Lyn Cheney (and her ilk) were hopelessly compromised as effective candidates. The best way for them to deal with the opposition, of course, is to run it themselves.

Running good candidates is only HALF of the battle!

Booting a RINO

I’ve spent the last couple of years pounding home the message that RINO McDaniels was a symptom of a problem…a party shot through with RINO officials. In this instance it was the hundred or so members of the RNC who gleefully voted for her again, and again, and again.

Well I got to help take one of those hundred people down, as told here: https://www.theqtree.com/2024/04/07/i-aim-to-raise-a-ruckus/. What’s even better is that oxygen thief was apparently boiling mad at how poorly she did in the vote (according to a MAGA candidate for a county office I spoke to on Tuesday night). Apparently she felt entitled to her office no matter what the rubes thing…and that attitude turns people into RINOs.

Judging from the number of comments received few noticed or cared about the post, but nonetheless I noticed a pattern: Hardly anyone who regularly puts forth “devolution” or “this is all a movie” theories (or any other variant of the idea that Trump and/or his allies are really in charge) seemed to care about it. I described successful action against the enemy and they didn’t care.

I submit that that is the desired effect of such ideas as devolution…to get people on our side not to care, not to participate, not to fight, because they believe someone else will do it for them. “Nothing can stop what is coming?” Great! I don’t have to lift a finger, just be ready to microwave some popcorn!

If any of you really are thinking like this, you might as well be controlled opposition. You’re doing exactly what the other side wants you to do, sitting on your hands waiting for deliverance by deus ex machina.

Biden Gives Us Too Much Credit

…we can move on to the next one.

Apparently Biden (or his puppeteer) has decided we’re to blame for all of the fail in the United States today.

Sorry to disappoint you Joe (or whoever), but you managed to do that all on your own; not only that, you wouldn’t let us NOT give you the chance because you insisted on cheating your way into power.

Yep, you-all are incompetent, and so proud of it you expect our applause for your sincerity. Fuck that!!

It wouldn’t be so bad, but you insist that everyone else have to share in your misery. Nope, can’t have anyone get out from under it. Somehow your grand vision only works if every single other person on earth is forced to go along. So much as ONE PERSON not going along is enough to make it all fail, apparently.

In engineering school we’re taught that a design that has seven to eight billion single points of failure…sucks.

Actually, we weren’t taught that. Because it would never have occurred to the professors to use such a ridiculous example.

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 2022 or 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.

Kamala Harris has a new nickname since she finally went west from DC to El Paso Texas: Westward Hoe.

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

All prices are Kitco Ask, 3PM MT Friday (at that time the markets close for the weekend). (Note: most media quotes are for the bid…the price paid by the market makers, not the ask, which is what they will sell at. I figure the ask is more relevant to people like us who wish we could afford to buy these things. In the case of gold the difference is usually about a dollar, for the PGMs the spread is much wider.)

Last Week:

Gold $2,415.40
Silver $31.58
Platinum $1,093.00
Palladium $1,038.00
Rhodium $5,400.00

This week, markets closed at 3PM Mountain Time Friday for the weekend.

Gold $2,334.30
Silver $30.41
Platinum $1,035.00
Palladium $989.00
Rhodium $5,300.00

Gold and silver (and platinum and palladium) continued to surge, until a couple of days ago. Silver touched $32 and gold reached $2,425

Then they got beaten with the ugly stick on Wednesday and Thursday

They recovered a tiny amount on Friday (platinum actually did best, going up $9) except for palladium which dropped $7 that day. Who knows, maybe platinum will remain above palladium for the foreseeable future.

And rhodium? Didn’t move at all.

Julile Kelly:

Special Counsel Jack Smith just opened another can of worms seeking to stop Trump from discussing FBI authorization to use lethal force.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Good grief.

I’m not seeing an easy way out of this.

TheseTruths

On that particular issue, of Trump talking about lethal force, it’s too late. Everyone is talking about it, and they’re not going to stop. Maybe Trump will read some of their statements like he’s been doing about other matters they’re tried to muzzle him about. 😎

But in the bigger picture, I don’t see a way out for Trump either. I have said from the beginning that I will not be surprised if he is convicted of something. I think a conviction would bring more minority voters out of the woodwork because they can identify with oppression and wrongful conviction.

The optics of locking Trump up would be terrible for the Left. They are either so desperate that they are continuing to implement their plan even though it is backfiring bigly, with Trump becoming more popular, or they think “righteous” people would not vote for a “convicted felon,” or they know they have a foolproof method of cheating to defeat Trump. If he were convicted and incarcerated with a Dem in the White House, that would be extremely dangerous.

TheseTruths

I’m guessing there would be appeals before incarceration, though. So Dems must be playing the “people won’t vote for a convicted felon” card.

scott467

I think DJT wants them to throw him in that briar patch.

pgroup2

Brer Rabbit was a lot smarter than Jack Smith.

scott467

I think I read here yesterday or the day before that Jack Smith is:

A) not his real name

and

B) he’s some international U.N. lawyer or something

Which raises the question, does he even have a license to practice lawfare in the Banana Republic of America (BRoA)?

It’s probably one of those honorary law degrees.

TheseTruths

I don’t know what the source of those claims was or whether they are true. I would think the Trump defense team would have looked into that, but you never know.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I did research this. What I know is that his name is John L. Smith, where L is weird and I forgot what it is.

And he was indeed an attorney for the ICC/ICJ in the Hague – even Politico fact-checks this as TRUE, with lots of details.

But THIS is the most important part.

I did a Twitter thread on the guy, last year.

From an earlier post here……

*****************

Did a Twitter thread on John Smith…..

TheseTruths

Great thread! “Lawfare hit man” is exactly what we’re seeing, only it’s not working on Trump.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

You know, I just realized something. Let me explain, and lead into it.

Some of us have been theorizing that there’s some kind of weird global or world treaty on depop and other hush-hush things, where we’ve made (illegally, mind you) “secret treaty” obligations to global organizations.

For example, some of us suspect that EVIDENCE of these things, may have been what DOJ was really looking for, when they raided Trump, after using NARA to set him up with a records dump BY THEM to get documents in his abode in MAL. Trump was probably NOT read in on this stuff, and if he got it, he might have gotten it “ilLeGaLLy” from his allies. So that would be one way these evil read-in depopper assholes could nail or control Trump.

ANYWHO…..

Jack Smith. His association with THE HAGUE makes sense. It is violations of this evil secret treaty that they are going after Trump for.

SMITH is read in on it. He’s the go-to guy to go after politicians who are considered to be risks to their plan.

Gail Combs

If POTUS Trump does have HARD EVIDENCE, and I think he does, it is NOT anywhere the Cabal can get there hands on it.

Excellent work WolfM

Thanks! This was a big realization for me – and it helped to assure me that Trump was almost certainly INNOCENT.

Subpoena all the agents on the raid and ask them on oath in the witness box “Were you prepared to shoot the ex president ?” yes or no.

Smacks of more Jack The Hack lying drama bullshit.

FIB was authorized to shoot Trump.

The fact the entire raid premise is bullshit, the FIB MaraLago raid was Pure Jackboot Thuggery.

A Christian law firm is applauding a major bank chain for rolling back one of its controversial policies that led to the de-banking of several conservative individuals and nonprofit organizations over the last few years.

JPMorgan Chase, the largest bank in the U.S., rolled back its WePay service that required merchants to refrain from accepting payments or using the service for activities related to “social risk issues,” which the bank defined as anything “subject to allegation and impacts related to hate groups, systemic racism, sexual harassment and corporate culture.”

The language was removed from the company’s WePay terms of service, the Alliance for Defending Freedom (ADF) discovered this month.

“We support clients around the globe and in every state in the U.S., across industries, religions, and political affiliations,” a JPMorgan Chase spokesperson told Fox News Digital in a statement on Thursday evening.

CHRISTIAN NONPROFIT CLAIMS IT WAS ‘DE-BANKED’ BY BANK OF AMERICA OVER ITS RELIGIOUS VIEWS

“Chase has used this policy to discriminate on the basis of viewpoint,” ADF senior counsel Jeremy Tedesco told Fox News Digital in an interview. “The policy itself is a risk to every single person who uses WePay and Chase, the biggest bank in America.”

…Another incident in 2021 involved WePay denying ticket-payment processing services for a Republican event hosted by a nonprofit organization, Defense of Liberty. The event featured Donald Trump, Jr., and WePay initially denied services by citing policies against providing services connected to “hate … racial intolerance … or items or activities that encourage, promote, facilitate, or instruct others regarding the same.”

At the time, JPMorgan Chase reversed the decision and said the group “didn’t violate the terms of service” after Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick called out the bank and warned that the state would reconsider doing business with the bank because of what he viewed as ideological discrimination.

To encourage private companies to uphold freedom of speech, ADF launched a Business Index that ranks companies based on their own policies.

…Chase’s rollback comes as, last month, a group of 15 financial officers representing 13 states issued a warning to Bank of America over its alleged practices of “politicized de-banking” targeting conservatives.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Fascinating. Makes me wonder if the Epstein stuff has “sensitized” Chase to the risks they were taking by debanking people.

Epstein was great – until he wasn’t.

Debanking was great – until it wasn’t.

TradeBait2

Agree.

The response to it and other maladies in this country is in the rise of real, conservative majorities in red states who take control of legislatures and governor seats who are unafraid to use the legal system that has oppressed them. That is the root answer to curing a lot of what ails this country.

Money hungry, greed driven bankers are by nature egotists and social animals. They depend on relationships and perceptions driven within the business communities at large even when they are primarily transaction oriented institutions. The profit margins are very small, so volume is necessary to maintain and/or grow. Lose a chunk of support and the bottom line gets hammered. They are very afraid of the silent majority and what the MAGA movement could become. It rocks their Establishment boats just thinking about it.

As long as MAGA stays in its lane and on target, this gets better as we go. SD was actually very right about Wall Street versus Main Street. That’s the real war in America. MAGA should stay in its lane on Main Street and not fall for the temptations of the whores of Wall Street. Stay the course.

Gail Combs

AMEN!

That is why, decades ago I completely side stepped the Left vs Right debate and TARGETED BANKSTERS and FRACTIONAL RESERVE BANKING.

No one like the idea that J.P. Morgan punches a few buttons and creates money out of nothing, lend it to you, and you have to paid it back WITH INTEREST using your LABOR.

WORSE the interest is front loaded on the mortgage payments. Therefore if you do not stay in your job for more than five years, all you do is pay INTEREST and a very tiny % of the principal.

WORSE since that money created out of nothing actually represents INFLATION aka currency devaluation, that value of that tiny amount of principal has eroded to next to nothing.

AND to add insult to injury, IF you do manage to actually pay off a mortgage and then sell your house to retire, YOU CAN GET TAXED on the ‘Capital gains’ aka currency devaluation. (Depends on the whims of the various legislatures.)

From 2019:

TradeBait2

Correct – good practices, Steve.

Gail Combs

Unfortunately this is what is incorrect:

“….wants to see a constant rate of return on whatever money they don’t have,👉 because it has been lent out.👈 ….”

The money representing someone’s labor is called ‘Consideration’ in a contract.

The problem is THERE IS NO CONSIDERATION!!! It is Fairy dust and that was proved in a court of law.

A friend of mine successfully used this defense AND WON BTW. He is the one who taught me about the banking scam back in the 1970s.

[QUOTE}

…Don’t believe banks create the money they lend? Neither did the jury in a landmark Minnesota case, until they heard the evidence. First National Bank of Montgomery vs. Daly (1969) was a courtroom drama worthy of a movie script.3 Defendant Jerome Daly opposed the bank’s foreclosure on his $14,000 home mortgage loan on the ground that there was no consideration for the loan. “Consideration” (“the thing exchanged”) is an essential element of a contract. Daly, an attorney representing himself, argued that the bank had put up no real money for his loan.

The courtroom proceedings were recorded by Associate Justice Bill Drexler, whose chief role, he said, was to keep order in a highly charged courtroom where the attorneys were threatening a fist fight. Drexler hadn’t given much credence to the theory of the defense, until Mr. Morgan, the bank’s president, took the stand. To everyone’s surprise, 👉Morgan admitted that the bank routinely created money “out of thin air” for its loans, and that this was standard banking practice. “It sounds like fraud to me,” intoned Presiding Justice Martin Mahoney amid nods from the jurors. In his court memorandum, Justice Mahoney stated:

Plaintiff admitted that it, in combination with the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, . . . did create the entire $14,000.00 in money and credit upon its own books by bookkeeping entry. That this was the consideration used to support the Note dated May 8, 1964 and the Mortgage of the same date. The money and credit first came into existence when they created it. Mr. Morgan admitted that no United States Law or Statute existed which gave him the right to do this. A lawful consideration must exist and be tendered to support the Note.

The court rejected the bank’s claim for foreclosure, and the defendant kept his house. To Daly, the implications were enormous. If bankers were indeed extending credit without consideration – without backing their loans with money they actually had in their vaults and were entitled to lend – a decision declaring their loans void could topple the power base of the world. He wrote in a local news article:

👉This decision, which is legally sound, has the effect of declaring all private mortgages on real and personal property, and all U.S. and State bonds held by the Federal Reserve, National and State banks to be null and void. This amounts to an emancipation of this Nation from personal, national and state debt purportedly owed to this banking system. Every American owes it to himself . . . to study this decision very carefully . . . for upon it hangs the question of freedom or slavery.

Needless to say, however, the decision failed to change prevailing practice, although it was never overruled. It was heard in a Justice of the Peace Court, an autonomous court system dating back to those frontier days when defendants had trouble traveling to big cities to respond to summonses. In that system (which has now been phased out), judges and courts were pretty much on their own. Justice Mahoney, who was not dependent on campaign financing or hamstrung by precedent, went so far as to threaten to prosecute and expose the bank. He died less than six months after the trial, in a mysterious accident that appeared to involve poisoning.4 Since that time, a number of defendants have attempted to avoid loan defaults using the defense Daly raised; but they have met with only limited success. As one judge said off the record:

If I let you do that – you and everyone else – it would bring the whole system down. . . . I cannot let you go behind the bar of the bank. . . . We are not going behind that curtain!5

Banks typically have 3% of their assets in cash in order to meet customer needs. Since 1960, banks have been allowed to use this “vault cash” to satisfy their reserve requirements. Today, bank reserve requirements have fallen to the point where they are now exceeded by vault cash, which means lowering reserve requirements to zero would have virtually no impact on the banking system. US banks are already operating free of any reserve constraints. The graph below shows reserve requirements falling to zero over the last fifty years.

Robert B. Anderson, Secretary of the Treasury under Eisenhower, said in an interview reported in the August 31, 1959 issue of U.S. News and World Report:

[W]hen a bank makes a loan, it simply adds to the borrower’s deposit account in the bank by the amount of the loan. The money is not taken from anyone else’s deposit; it was not previously paid in to the bank by anyone. It’s new money, created by the bank for the use of the borrower.

  • As long as MAGA stays in its lane and on target, this gets better as we go.
  • SD was actually very right about Wall Street versus Main Street.
  • That’s the real war in America.
  • MAGA should stay in its lane on Main Street and not fall for the temptations of the whores of Wall Street.
  • Stay the course.

Jeffries Calls SCOTUS Justices ‘MAGA Extremists’; Says Congress Must Get High Court ‘Under Control’

House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) said Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline” that the “MAGA extremists” on the Supreme Court must be controlled with a “legislative effort to implement an ethical code of conduct.”

Jeffries said, “This is part of the challenge that we confront with the runaway Supreme Court that appears to want to conduct itself as if the Judiciary is above the law. For years, members of Congress in both the House and the Senate have indicated that it’s time for the Supreme Court to have an ethical code of conduct that is enforceable.”

He continued, “Last year, Chief Justice Roberts did implement a code of conduct, but it appears to be voluntary and is being ignored. And so, as a result of that, the first opportunity that we have in the Congress, I believe we need to have a real conversation about a legislative effort to implement an ethical code of conduct on the Supreme Court that is enforceable. They are the only branch of government currently that can operate with impunity.”

Jeffries added, “Congress has an ethical code of conduct enforceable under law. The executive branch has an ethical code of conduct enforceable under law. We’ve got to get the MAGA extremists on the Supreme Court under control.”

Dear Hakeem:
One branch of government (Legislative) doesn’t have jurisdiction over another (Judicial). That would defeat the purpose of the three branches. You don’t see SCOTUS telling Congress what ethics rules it must have. You don’t see the Executive branch overruling SCOTUS’S ethical code. C’mon, man.

Scott brought this yesterday – I want to be sure people see it. This looks like a big deal!

Here is more information on the movie.

Reminds me of Rachel Carson, Silent Spring, attacking pesticides, IIRC. I’m trying to remember what movie caused us to stop with nuclear power plants.

Barb Meier

TY Steve! I never watched it.

Hubby knew Rachel Carson. He said she was a real Looney Tune.

Remember she went after DDT and essentially got it banned world wide. This led to an up tick of deaths in Africa from insect borne diseases.

– Roger Meiners, et. al (cover insert)

“Silent Spring at 50: The False Crises of Rachel Carson” (Reassessing environmentalism’s fateful turn from science to advocacy)

….this iconic book, hardly scrutinized over the decades, substituted sensationalism for fact and apocalyptic pronouncements for genuine knowledge.

Our just released 11-author study, Silent Spring at 50: The False Crises of Rachel Carsonreexamines Carson’s historical context and science, as well as the policy consequences of Silent Spring‘s core ideas. We assembled scholars from different disciplines and asked them to evaluate Carson’s work given the state of knowledge at the time she was writing. What information was available that she ignored? Where did she deviate from accepted science of the day?

Our findings are unsettling. Carson made little effort to provide a balanced perspective and consistently ignored key evidence that would have contradicted her work. Thus, while the book provided a range of notable ideas, a number of Carson’s major arguments rested on what can only be described as deliberate ignorance.

Doesn’t remind me of that at all.

The vaccine promotion by the pharmaceutic companies and the 3 letter agencies and hospital corporations and AMA is more of a change-the-data-for-profit – like the Climate Change hoax – changing weather data to promote the carbon, cow fart, fossil fuel crap.

The FORCED bad protocols on doctors and patients – only the real scientists Front Line doctors resisted. Dr. Ryan Cole exposed the loss of immune T Cells due to the CV19 vaccines. Many other doctors spoke out and were excoriated!

NEVER FORGET! “It was a lie from the very beginning. We had treatment from Day one!!!”

AND THEY KNEW IT!!!

That is why they took HCQ off the ‘over the counter’ list in France a couple days BEFORE the news of covid hit. AND then mysteriously lost the warehouse supplies.

Very simple, very clear, and very true. We as a world were BRAINWASHED into inaction.

Not Scott, of course but I certainly was. 😉

I knew something was wrong, but I didn’t see – couldn’t see – HOW WRONG.

I thought that the other side could be “convinced” to do the right thing.

NEVER. Not in a million years. They had OTHER GOALS.

TheseTruths

Very interesting. I wondered if it was about COVID at all. It’s not; it’s about the mumps vaccine. Maybe that will allow people to watch without being threatened by their recent experiences while at the same time raising awareness of how public health takes a back seat to money and power.

TheseTruths

Based on real-life events, Protocol 7 follows Alexis Koprowski, a devoted mother and small-town family lawyer, Adrian Jay, a renegade doctor exiled from the medical profession, and Steve Schilling, a virologist at a prominent vaccine laboratory turned corporate whistleblower, as they work together to hold a large pharmaceutical corporation accountable for allegedly fraudulent test results behind a failing mumps vaccine.

I had never heard about this.

EXACTLY. It’s only because of COVID that people are (IMO) now ready to question basic assertions of the vaccination paradigm as not necessarily true.

More on the Terrence Howard story.

Here is the whole crazy interview.

Here is a teacher talking about how teaching failed Terrence Howard. He also mentions Jussie Smollett.

Here is another great criticism of Terrence Howard’s BS.

Anyway, I am not particularly trusting in the power of “Terryology”!

Gail Combs

👉 “…he was brain damage.”

Boy was he!

I wonder if his promotion is part of the Anti-White science movement?

The fact the guy gets promoted, AND the fact people have so little logic and scientific background is frightening.

para59r

He just shredded Joe Rogan and by extension a large part of his listeners. Paul Newman Sting Style. Just waiting now for the lefties in media to go to town on this.

If the left has not already started to cackle about this, someone needs to write an article about that! Like tomorrow.

Yes – I did want to talk about it more broadly. And that makes the task even bigger. But I really should. It’s now becoming risk to our side, frankly.

TheseTruths

I had never heard of the guy, and I can’t bear to watch or listen to him. The fact that people are paying attention to him says a lot about the failure of our education system, both in teaching math and in teaching how to think.

The last video starts with this:
“People are more gullible now than they ever have been in the history of the species. That’s just a fact. People are throwing away any level of thinking and rationality just to believe in the most outlandish garbage imaginable and just falling victim to every scam you could ever possibly drum up.”

Somewhere along the way, discernment has been lost. Yes, weird things do happen and people and governments do conspire against one another, but there is a detrimental lack of judgment in so many people today. I think it is partly attributable to the denial of universal truths, which makes people doubt their own judgment as well as science. If men can be women, then what other anomalies can happen that we used to think were impossible? So chaos reigns and common sense is out the window, even with those who are clear on male/female biology but want to be part of the crowd that “sees” things that others supposedly don’t. Later in the video, he says: “[Terrence Howard] is able to mislead people who want to believe something different…”

People being people, there will be things about even your most beloved that will sometimes set your teeth on edge. I mentioned the Fiancee’s inability to tell left from right, for instance — sends me right up the wall whenever we go anywhere…..so I mostly drive. On our way back from Palm Springs she offered to drive when we stopped-off for a slice of truck stop pizza….and I was back behind the wheel in 30 minutes.

I happen to be quite fond of our group here (though I miss several who do not visit as often as they once did), but I’d be lying if I said that I hadn’t been irritated by practically every one of them a time or two.

I don’t let it get to me, and the impulse soon passes.

scott467

“I mentioned the Fiancee’s inability to tell left from right, for instance — sends me right up the wall whenever we go anywhere…..so I mostly drive.”

Good plan.

Not knowing which side of the road to drive on can result in a sudden radical stoppage 👍

Gail Combs

Not knowing which is left and right DOES NOT mean you do not know what side to drive on.

I have the left-right problem and HATE written directions.

I WANT A MAP! Maps completely by pass the left-right problem at least for me.

….

On that note, it is interesting that some MEN have a built in compass. One of the guys I caved with did. It did not matter that we went down ‘twisty little passages all different’ for hours. Ask him which direction was north and he would point. We would check him with a compass and he was always correct.

….

Isn’t it interest how the brain works?

GA/FL

I also have a left right issue – thankfully – I have a writer’s callus on the middle finger of my left hand but not on the right hand – to help me distinguish left from right.

I write with my left hand, but cut with right hand – can’t use left handed scissors.

Gail Combs

Same here. I have scars from operations on my left ankle so I look down.😂

A map completely by passes the ‘words’ for me.

Actually I am better with go south, north east or west.

You’re welcome.

The assumption that there had to be a “science explanation” because he used “science words” was very frustrating to me.

That’s how I came up with the example of “you add shortening to make the biscuits rise.” It uses “baking words” but there is no “baking explanation” available.

To some extent, you were a victim of your own success — you produced a series of beautiful pellucid explanations of “science words” and their concepts, so you were seen as being able to weave his “science words” into something that would make sense.

Alas, there was no sense to be had in his material.

cthulhu

If I’d tried to argue the “science words”, it would have gone the same way. By using “baking words”, I could show the workings of the snare.

kalbokalbs

Frustration, as Steve’s points out.

Go back a month or so.

The absolute, being polite here, stoopidity over what will happen during the Eclipse.

  • A fricken event that happens like clockwork.
  • Predictable. When, Where, AND What will happen before, during and after.
  • Yet some, “educated” continually posted silly shit was gonna happen during the “Eclipse.” As if the Eclipse would cause it.
  • Statements without solid foundation.
  • Not doomfagery. Skeerdy mongering.
  • Made them words up. Still mispelled them. 🙄

Anyway, after pushing back with what I thought was solid logic, a few times.

Adopted the scroll on perspective. Can’t fix willful…

Gail Combs

“….Yet some, “educated” continually posted silly shit was gonna happen during the “Eclipse.” ….”

….

I think it was more the CABAL is going to use the Eclipse as an EXCUSE to do a False Flag given all the hype.

I could certainly see that, esp since it was near Ramadan, which I was a lot more worried about.

kalbokalbs

Could have been that. Posted as much.

  • Not a reason to link the Eclipse as causing the evil event. No cause and effect.

Evil will always do evil when and where they choose. Altering our lives caves to them.

pgroup2

Au contraire. Altering our lives for the purpose of escaping evil is pointless due to the relentless nature of evil. But changing our lives to improve even when evil attacks is not related to evil directly.

And so it is sometimes a good thing to alter.

Kalbokalbs,

I actually think there might have been a link to the Eclipse but it would be a Satanic Cult link.

kalbokalbs

Prolly so.

We recognize stuff like that and navigate elsewhere.

para59r

Yes, but the Earth Quake stuff had historical fact backing it up. Was there or was there not the New Madrid Earthquakes three months after the an Eclipse that followed the same path?

para59r

Not saying that was the cause of New Madrid, but with out another explainer it seemed to work. Window on that one is closing fast.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

There’s no new force during an eclipse and the combined tides would look indistinguishable from any new moon.

Not only an excellent argument, but the idea that a solar eclipse is basically a particular new moon is very explanatory of what an eclipse actually is, and how they are inherently predictable.

I wish I would have been online here during that time – I would have loved to have doubled down on this point

kalbokalbs

As zi recall, the projected earthquake did not happen.

About the time of the Eclipse, someone posted earthquakes follow a pattern of sorts across the earth. Did NOT happen.

Watched for a week or so. Meant to post as much at the time. Forgot to post.

Of course not.

OK.

But the posts(s) around Eclipse time clearly stated earthquakes were happening sequentially around the globe.

AND would continue doing so.

It’s what I read, understood and doubted. Kept waiting and waiting…

TheseTruths

I share this guy’s frustration, and I am sick and tired of people continuing to trust sources and people who should have been discredited.

I hear you because I share that frustration.

I am on the point of simply walking away from this site.

I sincerely hope you will not. We need your voice of reason and the level of instruction that you bring, now more than ever.

It is exhausting, as I well know. I’m sometimes flabbergasted at what I see here, in what people bring that they insist could be or IS true, in the sources that they trust, and in the degree to which they defend what can accurately be described as fantasy. The psychology article that I brought here the other day described in textbook fashion some of what I’ve seen and experienced. Getting that validation helped me a lot. It won’t solve the issue, but it showed me that my thinking about what I’ve observed has been accurate. It also gave a glimpse into how some people’s psyches work.

The thought keeps occurring to me that, if people’s children came home with some of the ideas I’ve seen here, most sane parents would instruct the children about how things work and lead them down avenues of common sense and truth. But now we have adults who believe outlandish things that they would never countenance in their children. It makes no sense.

IMO we need more pushback. People hold back, whether it’s because they don’t want to engage or get involved, they are being polite, or for other reasons. I’ve observed that some people are given deference and trust no matter what they say or how rude they are, and people won’t challenge them. The behavior is very interesting to watch, but yes, frustrating.

Steve,
We need you and the open discussion here.

Remember a lot of people do not have a scientific background and the schools system had done their darnest to turn out unthinking people who rely on emotion because they are so much easier to manipulate.

BTW, kudos on the work you are doing in CO to get rid of the RINOs.

THAT had to be very high level frustration.

mollypitcher5

In my view this is why I feel that AI is dangerous. People have been lulled into thinking that the internet is infallible. If whatever subject they happen to be looking up and the page choices supplied by google are headed by 3 articles such as the ones we’ve talked about here….most won’t deep dive further.
If the almighty AI says to use elmers glue on pizza, who is to disagree. after all it said non toxic glue..must be right ????
If an elementary school kid is asking AI about any subject unless the teacher specifically says to check sources ( which they probably won’t)..AI for the win..

mollypitcher5

agree but I guess my focus in on millions of children passing along in the polluted school system especially after the covid precedent of online studies.
All of the districts pretty much made sure every child had a computer to use. No more library reference materials and most certainly no instruction on using vetted sources.

Hell, Alexa and Siri are practically part of the family in some households. They know everything..right?!

DANG that is bad news.

At least we got to make contact with the NC Republican party Election Fraud dude.

I think you would like him. Armed forces (His wife is a marine and a real firecracker) and a STICKLER for EVIDENCE. He is another engineer.

I had lost contact with his wife because she was targeted by the left once it came out she was at Jan 6th. She shut down her e-mail and phone as a result.

Once we get some of the mess on the farm taken care of (Metal roof flapping in the breeze, rotting fence posts, trees sprouting where I do not want them…) we will probably be volunteering as grunts.

Aubergine

Hey, now. Don’t do that.

There are some people who are going to be gulled by snake oil salesmen. We who are not are the bulwark against the movie Idiocracy actually coming true.

Believe me, when you get into it with someone who is being gulled, the “gull-ee” is not the only one reading what you are writing. I guarantee you that there is someone who might have fallen for it, but your logical mind saved them.

That is what I hate about Patrick Gunnels, he promotes every looney tunes conspiracy theory that walks by and thereby paints the entire MAGA movement with the same brush.

one more comment ..when you walk into the Whitehouse it doesn’t matter who you are you give up your gun…only Secret Service have guns…at all protected areas…all guns are confiscated unless you’re part of the protective detail… same thing at Mar-a-Lago…and Trump was supposed to be there and left unexpectedly…Judge Cannon is furious about the raid…we’ll find out more at the end of June…Watch Bonginos whole show…not just the clips…he believes this was absolutely 💯 way wrong…the order came straight out of the Whitehouse Biden Regime

You might want to give her more up votes:

Actually the Secret Service could arrest every single one of the FBI team on the basis of 18 U.S. Code § 1752 – Restricted building or grounds if they did not show a warrent. ALSO the SS had the right to disarm ALL of them.

kalbokalbs

ALSO the SS had the right to disarm ALL of them.

  • AND, I assume, take Fibbers down with whatever force is required.
  • As if, there was coordination before the raid.

The more we know, the more we realize we have not been told the “Rest of the Story.”

Barb Meier

At Presidential Inaugurations, the FBI cannot take weapons outside of JEH HQ. The SS handles security. I remember being told that there is a little competitiveness between FBI and SS, but that is probably at the individual level.

TradeBait2

And should have. Which leads to the next question, why did they not? The answer it obvious.

Pit of vipers.

Gail Combs

Which is why POTUS Trump ALSO HAS HIS OWN SECURITY!

TheseTruths

I know nothing about the protocols concerning law enforcement and that raid, but my first thought upon hearing that deadly force was standard operating procedure was this is not a standard case. This is an unprecedented case of entering the domain of a Secret Service-protected former president and current candidate for office. Maybe you would want to draw up procedures specific to this case. Maybe you would want to try to avoid trouble, misunderstandings, and injuries at all costs. There is no excuse for what they did.

Gail Combs

That is why Dan Bongino was so flaming angry. He had done similar engagements where he had to coordinate with Putin’s equivalent of the Secret Service. ALL the details are hammered out IN ADVANCE so you do not have COP vs COP take place.

Barb Meier

Dan is correct. Deconfliction is done internally, interagency, and with friendly nations. Someone probably had a Jeffrey Toobin minute adding that statement thinking it would CYA if they managed to get SS to respond and give this admin a new talking point. “These people are stupid.” – Q

I have been over at X today down-rating those accepting FBI CYA saying it was a boilerplate statement, and marking all the leftist media as unreliable sources. How fun is that? I send them to the 2021 FBI DIOG where they can wade around for awhile and choak on it.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/380538521_Estimate_of_the_COVID-19_over-reporting_bias_as_underlying_cause_of_death_in_the_USA

Abstract

In this work we provide an estimate of the degree of over-reporting of COVID-19 as the underlying cause of death in the US. We calculate the over-reporting adjustment factor by comparing the ratios of reporting of COVID-19 as multiple cause of death to underlying cause of death, with the equivalent ratio for Influenza and Pneumonia (ICD-10 codes J09-J18). Our results show that there is a systematic over-reporting of COVID-19 when reported as underlying cause of death, when compared to Influenza and Pneumonia during the same period. The average over-reporting factor is about 2.5 to 3 for all ages. We also observe that for ages 15 to 54 the over-reporting factor ranged from 2 to 3.5 between 2020 and 2022, which is higher than for younger and older individuals. For older individuals, the over-reporting factor ranged from 1.9 to 3, while for younger individuals the over-reporting factor ranged from 1.1 to 2.8. The over-reporting factors we compute only account for the relative over-reporting of COVID-19 as the underlying cause of disease as opposed to as a contributing cause, when compared with influenza and pneumonia. This work therefore contributes to the ongoing discussion of death “with” COVID-19 versus “from” COVID-19.

*** There were the “instructions” from the CDC to report ANY AND ALL deaths from a hospital patient who “tested positive” for COVID-19 as an ICD code for “Death from COVID-19.” Deaths in hospitalized patients who had a COVID-19 infection who but actually died due to OTHER reasons (co-morbidity health issues, etc.) were ALL counted as deaths FROM COVID-19. See below —
*** There were also the financial incentives given to hospitals for admitting people who were infected with COVID-19; for the use of ventilators; for the use of remdesivir; and so on. These financial incentives could, and did, bring in MANY multiples of thousands of federal funds to hospitals.
*** There were similar “instructions” and financial incentives for residents of nursing homes, rehab facilities, etc., who “tested positive” for COVID-19.

Now, regarding the paper itself linked above:
The authors, Carlos Alegria and Yuri Nunes, are both PhD’s who work for the Humanity Projects department of Ed Dowd’s Phinance Technologies company (based in Portugal): https://phinancetechnologies.com/; click on “Humanity Projects”, then click on “About”, then click on “Our Team.”

The linked paper above is a preprint. As such, Yours Truly urges interested people to download the PDF — just in case it “suddenly” gets retracted; or is re-issued with “new conclusions” to reflect pressure on the authors from “other entities” who don’t “approve” of the original conclusions.
Also — the email address for Dr. Alegria is incorrect. From the “Humanity Projects” contact information on the Phinance Technologies website, it should be:
humanityprojects@phinancetechnologies.com

The authors of the paper linked above also have another one in preprint, this one about the rise in deaths from neoplasms (cancer tumors) starting in late 2020 and continuing through 2022. The paper analyzes deaths from the period 2010 – 2022. This paper is also a preprint:
https://doi.org/10.13140/RG.2.2.16068.64645
“US-Death Trends for Neoplasms ICD codes: C00-D48, Ages 15-44”

Interesting! Thank you for that.

My question is; if Covid was SO deadly, where are all the reports of people dying in their homes?

Because most of the deaths were in hospitals or “care” homes.

The truth is, people died from the PROTOCOLS.
