MARK 12:28-34

28And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the first of all?” 29Jesus answered, “The first is, `Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one; 30and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ 31The second is this, `You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” 32And the scribe said to him, “You are right, Teacher; you have truly said that he is one, and there is no other but he; 33and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the strength, and to love one’s neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And after that no one dared to ask him any question.

All gave some; some gave all.

Thank you. those who went ashore at Normandy on 6/6/44.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

There cannot be that many of them left alive, sadly.


NBC News is spending part of the week traveling with a busload of 50 American vets who have been brought over by the Best Defense Foundation charity, based in California.

They are set to include Richard “Dick” Ramsey, aged 100, a coxswain aboard the USS Nevada as it fired shells into the D-Day battlefield and narrowly missed getting hit in return. Also expected on the bus is Richard Rung, 100, who ferried troops to Omaha Beach while hosing his fellow soldiers’ blood from the small landing craft.

The youngest D-Day veterans are in their 90s; for many this will be the last major milestone they see as this event begins to pass out of living memory.

comment image


There is this. Many of them married younger woman. So they’ll be around for some time yet to give us a second hand direct connection. Maybe in a few years we’ll see the old vets replaced by the wives at say the 85th or 90th anniversary of Normandy… 🙂

My Father and my Uncles were in the Pacific theater.

Valerie Curren

My mom’s birth father was also in the Pacific Theater w/ the 2nd Battalion of the Marines, iirc, in Tarawa & other horrific battles.


All so brave. Here is the story of one.

For gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty on 6 June 1944, in the vicinity of St. Laurent-sur-Mer, France. On the morning of D-day, Pvt. Barrett, landing in the face of extremely heavy enemy fire, was forced to wade ashore through neck-deep water.

Disregarding the personal danger, he returned to the surf again and again to assist his floundering comrades and save them from drowning. Refusing to remain pinned down by the intense barrage of small-arms and mortar fire poured at the landing points, Pvt. Barrett, working with fierce determination, saved many lives by carrying casualties to an evacuation boat lying offshore.

In addition to his assigned mission as guide, he carried dispatches the length of the fire-swept beach; he assisted the wounded; he calmed the shocked; he arose as a leader in the stress of the occasion. His coolness and his dauntless daring courage while constantly risking his life during a period of many hours had an inestimable effect on his comrades and is in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Army.

What the citation does not say is that Barrett himself was wounded while saving the lives of his comrades. He was shot or hit with shrapnel in both hips and the left leg. It was not until a fourth wound to his foot (shrapnel shattered the bones) that he needed to be evacuated off the beach.

When Barrett was asked about his actions on that day, he would never retell his story. He would humbly state: “It was after that that I knew what a hero really is. They are all heroes just for being there — especially those that never came back … Memorial Day and D-Day are good days to remember them.”

Barrett was one of four Medal of Honor recipients on June 6, 1944, and the only one who lived to tell his story. [Theodore Roosevelt Jr. survived but died about a month later.] While recovering from his wounds, Barrett suffered two bouts of malaria and was not discharged from the hospital for five months, until October 1944. Barrett remained in the U.S. Army for another 19 years, retiring as a staff sergeant in 1963. He was always reluctant to talk about June 6, 1944, and when asked about it, he consistently refocused the conversations to the heroes who didn’t make it home. Sgt. Barrett retired to California to spend time with his wife and two daughters. He died May 3, 1986, at age 66.

Remember those fictional heroes with bulging biceps and jaw lines chiseled from granite? Carlton W. Barrett was barely 5-foot-3 and weighed 125 pounds, about the size of a healthy, sixth-grade boy. Bravery, selflessness and heroism pay no attention to Hollywood stereotypes.

Did he die from being put on a ventilator, or did he die from being pumped full of Remdesivir, or both?


Over kill, for the win murder.

  • Feds AND medical establishment in sync, focused on murdering Americans.

He might have been jabbed.

According to he had chronic kidney disease and diabetes 2, and was stuck in bed for three weeks. And he didn’t die from any flu.

Someone is ginning up propaganda it looks like.

BOY is that trial a real Catch-22.😆

If found innocent, it sets a precedent for OTHER gun/drug/alcohol charges.

If found guilty (& pardoned) It is a really bad look for Bye-Done


I think I read a story a few days back where the Biden Law warfare crowd are already working to get their people on the jury. I’m expecting a hung jury.


I don’t see it as a bad look for Captain Dementia. Only in the six months before election does he give a rat’s ass about looks.

I doubt there is anybody who doesn’t expect him to pardon all his family members on the morning of 1/20/25 [or the day before he reigns].

Regardless of whoever won the election.

Then they have to make sure Hunter does not spend any time in prison before that.


As a former legal professional, I assure you that is not a problem.

Assuming puppeteers don’t take Briben out in the night.

“it’s a very terrible thing, a terrible precedent for our country. Does that mean the next president does it to them? That’s really the question.”

He then talks about Hillary and “Lock her Up”… comparing their Feud as two fighters who hate each other, but then hug it out after…

Makes it sound like he didn’t WANT to arrest them before.


Yes. It sounds like he thought it would be divisive, but I doubt there was a situation where he had the means to arrest them and didn’t. I can’t help but wonder if this is a little bit of political speak.

Gail Combs

I think he was looking at the attitude of the country as a whole 4 or more years ago. That attitude has now changed AND the DemonRats, BROKE the ‘ice’ so to speak so it is now Good for the Goose, Good for the Gander’ time.


Broke the ice is an excellent addendum to para59r’s comment.

Fits just right.


He’s always offers them discreet olive branches in hopes they do the right thing.
Like it or not they, the deep state and cabal have their hands on all the levers that control the world. Busting them up seems right, is just, but will be very hard. Getting them to listen to reason and do the right thing would be the easier thing, and for some that might work. They should listen to Trump. Little by little all the layers of Maya are being wiped away and soon they’ll be naked in front of the whole world. If they start to come over they’ll at least have a few layers of deceit to obscure all their crimes.

There are more good people than bad. The wizards and warlocks (inside term) will NOT ALLow another Satanic Evil POS control our country. Realize Soros, Clintons, Obama, Putin, etc. are all controlled by 3 families (the 4th was removed post Trump’s victory).

11.3 – Podesta indicted

11.6 – Huma indicted

Manafort was placed into Trump’s camp (as well as others). The corruption that will come out is so serious that deals must be cut for people to walk away otherwise 70% of elected politicians would be in jail (you are seeing it already begin). A deep cleaning is occurring and the prevention and defense of pure evil is occurring on a daily basis. They never thought they were going to lose control of the Presidency (not just D’s) and thought they had control since making past mistakes (JFK, Reagan).

Good speed, Patriots.

PS, Soros is targeted.

Bill Barr says………..he hopes no one notices he’s just another one trying to snivel his way back into favor.

Meanwhile Putin implies that he’s not the only one who can employ the ukraine “cats paw” technique….

“The Russian Federation can supply its long-range weapons to regions of the world, from where there will be sensitive blows to countries supplying weapons to Ukraine – Putin.

Strikes against the Russian Federation with the participation of Western countries mean their direct war against Russia, Moscow will react.

The United States must stop supplying Ukraine with weapons and the conflict will end in 2-3 months.”

D-Day weather (emphasis mine):

In spite of meticulous planning surrounding all other aspects of the invasion the commanders could not control the weather and for advice on this they looked to a team of meteorologists led by Group Captain J. M. Stagg from the Met Office. Conditions in early June were extremely unsettled and the forecasters on both sides needed all the information they could get in order to predict when the invasion might occur. Stagg and his teams relied on the synoptic charts to provide the information they needed. These charts identified both the bad weather which resulted in the postponement of the invasion on the 5th and identified the weather window which enabled it to go ahead on the 6th.

Charts in the Met Office National Meteorological Archive in Exeter reveal that the allies had cracked the German Enigma code thus allowing the D-Day forecasters access not only to observations from Allied observers and reconnaissance flights but also to all the German meteorological observations. Comparison of the synoptic charts held in the Met Office archives and the archives of Deutscher Wetterdienst clearly shows this placed the Allied forecasters at a significant advantage over the German forecasters in terms of being able to spot a suitable weather window for the invasion. The allied charts contain a wealth of observations from across both the UK and Europe and also some observations from the Atlantic, the area from with the D-Day weather would come. By contrast the German charts reveal that they had been unable to crack the Allied codes and as a result there are virtually no observations for the UK and surrounding waters. Having access to this additional data gave the allied forecasters sufficient information to be able to plot the location and movement of the low pressure and cold front which forced the landings to be moved from the 5th to the 6th, and the ridge of high pressure which enabled them to predict better weather for the 6th with far greater accuracy than their German counterparts. As a result Stagg was able to advise that conditions on the 6th June would be marginal but sufficient to launch the invasion and in so doing the D-Day forecasters made perhaps the most important forecast in history.


Today’s Marxists would disagree.

For them, the most important forecast was the one that convinced the general public that a bad storm was caused by man-made climate change.


They can try, but it’s a lie…🤣

The FBI just admitted in court that Hunter Biden’s laptop is real.

Here are 20 minutes of Joe Biden, U.S. intelligence officials, and the American media claiming that Hunter Biden’s laptop was “Russian disinformation.”

The FBI has had possession of Hunter’s laptop since December 2019.

Leading up to the 2020 election, Twitter and Facebook censored the Biden laptop story because the FBI warned them of a potential hack-and-leak operation targeting Hunter Biden.

The FBI knew that Hunter’s laptop was real the entire time.

In October 2022, @MarcoPolo501c3 published a 640-page Report on the Biden Laptop that meticulously documents 459 crimes involving the Biden family and their associates.

The report provides evidence of Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) violations, money laundering, and tax fraud found on Hunter’s laptop.

It also exposes how federal law enforcement agencies, influenced by politics, protect the Biden family from prosecution while targeting President Biden’s primary election opponent, Donald Trump.

Shame on all of these people for lying to the American people, rigging our elections, and destroying the integrity of our nation.

“Shame on them” doesn’t go nearly far enough.

§ 147.4 Guideline B—Foreign influence.

(a) The concern. A security risk may exist when an individual‘s immediate family, including cohabitants and other persons to whom he or she may be bound by affection, influence, or obligation are not citizens of the United States or may be subject to duress. These situations could create the potential for foreign influence that could result in the compromise of classified information. Contacts with citizens of other countries or financial interests in other countries are also relevant to security determinations if they make an individual potentially vulnerable to coercion, exploitation, or pressure….

Sure sounds like HUNTER doesn’t it?

What Is Foreign Election Interference?

“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) defines foreign election interference as harmful actions by foreign governments or agents. The act aims to weaken the interests of the United States and its allies by:

*Sabotaging the credibility of the electoral system

*Influencing policy development

*Creating discord

*Altering public discourse or

*Disrupting the markets

Foreign election interference takes many forms, but the goal is almost always the same. It is to influence an institution to move in a more beneficial direction for the influencer. Foreign election interference can be overt or covert, which is part of the reason it is so difficult to prevent. Some examples of foreign election interference include:

*Overthrowing a particular regime

*Spreading misinformation on social media

*Funding a specific political candidate

*Creating doubt in political institutions or processes

Is Election Interference a Federal Crime in America?

Election interference can constitute a federal crime. The Federal Bureau of Investigation placed it under the Election Crimes and Security category. In general, an election crime is a federal crime if:

*The ballot contains one or more federal candidates. This indicates the potential impact on the federal election outcome.

*An election or polling place election official abuses their position.

*The act involves false voter registration, sabotaging the integrity of the electoral process.

*The crime intentionally targets minority-protected classes, violating their rights.

*The action violates federal campaign finance laws.

*These criteria emphasize the gravity of how the federal government looks at election interference.

What Is the Difference between Foreign Interference and Domestic Interference?

Foreign and domestic interference are two distinct concepts in politics and international relations.

Foreign interference is the actions of a foreign country against another. The foreign country intends to manipulate or influence the domestic matters of the other country. The foreign country also aims to advance its interests at the expense of the targeted country. One notable example of foreign interference was during the 2016 election. Here, Russian government agents hacked the email accounts of Democratic campaign officials. The emails were then published before the 2016 presidential election in an attempt to affect the election results. Other examples of foreign interference are:

*Attacks on cybersecurity

*Disinformation campaigns

*Covert operations

*Attempts to sway election results

I’m pretty sure that those emails were Not hacked but were taken via flash drive by Seth Rich which is presumably why he was murdered 🙁

Gail Combs

Oh, I am sure of that too, but I decided to leave that in especially given the VERY REAL ELECTION INTERFERENCE BY OUR ‘Intelligence’ Agencies who swear that the Hunter Laptop was disinformation.

Kinda makes you wonder WHO they are actually working for since it CERTAINLY ISN’T THE USA!

The British Empire maybe? Or the Nazis?


Geographical sovereignty lines do not exist for the globalists. Neither do ideological boundaries. The new boundaries are defined by power. IOW, cartels/mobs.

The previous delineations are now merely tools to be used to further power acquisitions

OK, I think I got it…..

sshfs aa789@aa:/mnt/new/s/dvdisos /mnt/dvdtest -o IdentityFile=/home/bw123/.ssh/aa789/id_rsa -p 10XXX

I can look at it from the server side (aa) and put a file there, then go to the workstation side (bw) and change the file.

Now let’s try ripping a DVD to an ISO over there…..


I used a method from — on my system, it came out ” dd if=/dev/cdrom bs=2048 count=2943698 of=/mnt/dvdtest/CADDYSHACK.iso “. Unfortunately, I forgot to include “status=progress”, so it’s just spinning happily away and I won’t know what it did until it’s done.

I do not want to use the dd command on a usual basis, because it is dangerous as all get-out. But we’ll see.


OK, I tried that twice and got read errors on the dvd both times. Hmmmm…..

OTOH, transferring across the network seems to be working fine.

Valerie Curren

what is a dd command, as in what does it mean?

btw when I finally saw Caddy Shack it became obvious that my husband’s movie quote delivery of many classic lines from it is Better than the original LOL

Last edited 1 month ago by Valerie Curren

The dd command is used to make image copies between storage units. The name came from the Data Definition statement of IBM’s Job Control Language, and was initially used to convert text from one encoding to another. Back in the mid-1970s, before everything used ASCII, this was important.

Present-day use is mostly to copy images of storage units to and from image files. Such as from a DVD to a disk file. Another common use case is to put downloaded operating system image files onto USB sticks or SD cards, in order to start up a computer (PC or something like a Raspberry Pi).

Like some of the other ancient commands, dd has much of the same safety and utility issues as a sharp knife. Like the knife, which does not know nor care about the different meat in a steak or a finger, dd can copy image data or file contents from anywhere to anywhere else. Including to where there might be something valuable that should not be over-written. For example, if the operating system lives on /dev/sda and the USB stick is /dev/sdb, then telling dd to write to the wrong one of these will be a serious show-stopper.

Valerie Curren

Wow, TY so much!


A couple of further points about dd beyond slowcreekno’s excellent comment.

If you’re trying to really, truly wipe a disk (as in, it used to contain your emails but the Feds are about to seize it), you can overwrite the entire disk with random data several times using dd. That’s effectively what those “wipe, like with a cloth” programs do. This works with data blocks on physical devices at a level below filesystems. It cannot be stated enough, however, that dd will do whatever you tell it to wherever you point it.

One way of telling whether something is an “ancient command” is the length of its name. UNIX (the precursor to Linux) originally started using classic teletype machines (my first school computer used these) —

The blazing speed of this device shows why contemporaneous parts of the operating system use as few letters as possible. That’s why Linux has directories such as “/usr”, “/bin”, “/dev”, “/tmp”, and “/lib” instead of “user”, “/binaries”, “/devices”, “/temporary”, and “/libraries”. You can also guess that “/home” and “/media” were later additions to the structure.

Commands such as “dd”, “ls”, “rm”, “sh”, “cp”, “mv”, “cd”, and “df” are clearly from that era. While “cd”, “ls”, and “df” are relatively harmless, the others tend to have fewer guardrails than expected.

Valerie Curren

I’m glad you & several others here have a good grasp of all of this!


Note that this device is a major plot point in The Andromeda Strain —

Valerie Curren

I need to see that & read that…some day 🙂

Valerie Curren

around 2:40 in the video there is a place where other models could place a phone handset for a modem. I played “Oregon Trail” on some type of machine that had the phone seated in the receptacle like that; that was in my junior high in the 70’s…


In fact, the abbreviation for the teletype itself is “tty”, and that remains as a general abbreviation (or even synonym) for some kind of console or terminal, throughout. Looking at the output of “ps” (process status, another of the oldies), it shows the processes’ TTY in one of the columns. This is the “controlling terminal” for a process (where its standard input and output go).

And /dev/tty(something) are the device-nodes for various real and virtual serial ports.

The real, wired, serial ports are where the mechanical teletype shown would have been connected. Later terminals with CRTs (cathode-ray tubes, like old TV sets) got the nickname “glass-tty”. We had a mix of these at the college back in the day — most of the regular glass ones ran at 1200 Baud, except for the fancy Tektronix graphical one that ran at 9600 Baud. That was >>> FAST >>> back then.

Device-nodes look a lot like, and is generally treated much the same as, files, except that when we write to them, what is written makes it to the outside, into a disk or onto a terminal, or some such. Likewise, they can be read and will capture whatever is found or coming in on the wires from the outside.


I have to confess that my private nickname for it is “Data Dump” rather than IBM JCL “Data Definition”. You can tell it to dump a million copies of “EIEIO” into a file called “OldMcDonald” and it will just do it. If you give it a device name, it will drop whatever you specify into that device regardless of file system, probably trashing the file system already on that device. You can probably find some insecure node and blast a billion copies of “GFY” into space.

It is famous for hosing people who make typos.

Google Buries Trump Campaign Website After Bombshell Trial Verdict


Actually, this IS a problem.

For whatever reason I never bookmarked Trump 2024. WAS easy to find before…

Last week, royal PIA.

Valerie Curren

Hey guys, I’d appreciate prayer for 3 situations in my family.

My mom, who turned 84 last month, took a fall earlier this week & broke her upper arm. Thankfully she’s not in much pain w/ the arm in a sling before surgery scheduled tomorrow morning to pin/plate the bone where a part broke off. Hopefully it will be out-patient & if all goes well she might only need a splint/cast for 2 weeks. Dad’s really stepped up to care for her in different ways as both of them deal w/ various aging issues.

Also my cousin’s son Matt is scheduled to receive a live-donor kidney transplant on June 10. He’s been dealing with a debilitating genetic condition for more than a decade & been on dialysis for a while now. He’s kind of an odd duck (as is that whole side of the family) but he loves the Lord & has some musical gifts which he contributes in worship leadership at his small Chicago area church. Please pray for him, his donor, their healing process, & that God would heal some breaches in that family. Matt’s sister is very unwell & has been caught up in those tranny delusions & other evils for like 20 years now.

Finally, my latest granddaughter Finley, about 2 1/2 months old, is being evaluated for possible eye issues. She definitely has vision but has responded atypically to some testing so they are having a referral to a specialist to see if what’s happening can be identified & addressed. Her dad, my oldest son, is taking a wait & see approach about everything…but as a mom of a super complicated special needs child, my heart goes out to my kiddos as they navigate even just the shallows of possible medical complexity.

Thank you for years of prayer ministry for many of my family members. Blessings!

Today is our 32nd wedding anniversary. God has been so faithful to sustain us through many trials. Michael is the Only person in his extended family for several generations to maintain an intact marriage–a huge testimony to our faith foundation & his character!


Valerie Curren
Sending Good Energy and Deep Healing to your mother, to Matt, and to Finley; and Deep Wisdom to their medical teams.
Happy wedding anniversary! Congratulations! 🎇

Musk to check Au10tix allegations by X anti-Israel influencers

…As far as is known, Musk has not yet contacted the Israeli company. In a user survey conducted by anti-Israel influencer, veteran US Marine Lucas Gage on the X Network, 92% of 50,000 people voted in favor of removing the Israeli company’s service. The intervention of Israeli blogger Ella Kenan brought in Israeli voters who slightly improved the result for Au10tix. — GLOBES

Badlands News Brief – June 5, 2024 [RESPONSE]

Our Take: Trigger Warning: Some of you may find these revelations upsetting.

(Many of these sources have been scrubbed from the internet, so tracking them down was rather difficult.)

Most of you have probably realized by now that the Digital Age is, in reality, the Surveillance Age, and the Surveillance State—as some have come to call it—is actually a matrix of Israeli-based software and technology companies that have created malevolent products that are intended to violate every word in the Bill of Rights.

Take, for instance, the Pegasus cyber-intelligence software developed by NSO Group Technologies. That would be the notorious software that is used to hack every cell phone in the world, activate its camera and microphone, and collect all data from photos taken to app usage to web history. And for those who naively think that there is a “separation of church and state” when it comes to these companies and the Israeli government, in 2020 it was reported that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to complain after the Israeli government blocked Saudi Arabia from using Pegasus.

Then there’s the cybersecurity company CHEQ, who secretly met with Elon Musk last year, promising to help X (formerly Twitter) rid the platform of bots. (How has that worked out?) It was also reported that Netanyahu attended that meeting, as well.

This company, AU10X, is equally concerning. Their slogan, “Security is in our DNA,” is rather ominous, as is the allegations that their “founder Ron Atzmon and CEO Dan Yerushalmi, are veterans of the Shin Bet, Mossad and IDF 8200 intelligence unit.” While some have questioned the accuracy of that claim, what is true is that AU10X’s parent company, ICTS International, was actually founded by former members of the Shin Bet—Israel’s secret police force.

In the late 1990’s, ICTS developed the Advanced Passenger Screening (APS) software, which is the algorithm used to cross-check passenger data in real-time, in order to determine security threats. ICTS also developed a number of other airport-related security software, including TravelDoc, IP@SS (Integrated Passenger Processing Solutions), and APIS Solution—the scanning software used by US Customs to extract passenger data in real-time.

👉What’s even more concerning about ICTS are its two other major companies, I-SEC International Security Group and Huntleigh USA.

I-SEC is the company that provides nearly all of the technology and equipment used by the TSA at every American airport. It was founded in 2005, capitalizing on the Patriot Act. Huntleigh USA is a security service provider that specializes in—you guessed it—airport security. 👉In fact, Huntleigh is most famous for being responsible for allowing the terrorists at Boston Logan International Airport board two of the four planes involved in the attack on September 11, 2001. (Oops)

👉The parent company, ICTS, was responsible for allowing Richard Rei—“The Shoe Bomber”—to board the plane at Charles de Galle Airport in Paris in December 2001. These companies were also responsible for allowing “The Underwear Bomber” to board the plane in the Netherlands back in 2009. That bomber was later revealed to be working for the CIA. 

I could go on and on, but you get the point. This is the Hegelian Dialectic, where 👉𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗜𝗖𝗧𝗦 𝘄𝗮𝘀 𝗱𝗶𝗿𝗲𝗰𝘁𝗹𝘆 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗼𝗻𝘀𝗶𝗯𝗹𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗰𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝗱𝗶𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 “𝗺𝗮𝗱𝗲 𝗻𝗲𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗮𝗿𝘆” 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗮𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗼𝘁 𝗔𝗰𝘁, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗻 𝗯𝗲𝗰𝗮𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗶𝗺𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝗯𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗳𝗶𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗿𝘆 𝗼𝗳 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗣𝗮𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗼𝘁 𝗔𝗰𝘁.

👉Speaking of the Patriot Act, this company AU10X provides the necessary solutions to meet the required compliance of Section 326 of the Patriot Act. So there’s that. — 



And then there is this from the New York Post in 2017:

….Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos on Sunday said he is returning to Greece to get $10,000 given to him as part of a CIA or FBI setup to entrap him – and he now wants the Department of Justice to examine the cash.

Papadopoulos said he was given the money in Israel during the summer of 2017 from a guy he believes was a spy but turned the moolah over to his attorney for safekeeping in Greece.

“A man named Charles Tawil gave me this money under very suspicious circumstances. A simple Google search about this individual will reveal he was a CIA or State Department asset in South Africa during the ’90s and 2000s. I think around the time when Bob Mueller was the director of the FBI…

“The money, I gave it to my attorney in Greece because I felt it was given to me under very suspicious circumstances. And upon coming back to the United States I had about seven or eight FBI agents rummaging through my luggage looking for money,” he told Mario Bartiromo.

He believes it was part of a setup by the FBI or the special counsel Robert Mueller’s office to “bring a [Foreign Agent Registration Act] violation against me.”….

Remember Chuck the Schmuck told POTUS Trump,

“𝗟𝗲𝘁 𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗲𝗹𝗹 𝘆𝗼𝘂, 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆, 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝘆 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘀𝗶𝘅 𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗦𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗮𝘆 𝗮𝘁 𝗴𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗯𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗮𝘁 𝘆𝗼𝘂.”


Well here is ANOTHER short Clip (1 minute)

Daily Beast: Schiff Seeks Answers, Aid for Israel as House ‘Dysfunction’ Prompts Fears of Inaction

….Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) voiced his desire for a robust U.S. response that he hopes will ensure “Israel gets whatever it needs to defend itself,” he said in an interview with The Daily Beast on Sunday.

“I’m sure they’re rapidly going through the Iron Dome defenses and we need to make sure that their systems are replenished,” Schiff said.

👉Of similar importance to the California lawmaker are the U.S.’ intelligence-sharing capabilities. The breach of Israeli compounds and military outposts by Hamas militants caught officials off guard and raised questions as to what led to the widespread security failures.

“It is really chilling that an attack this massive, this coordinated, could take place and if I were still on the Intelligence Committee, I would want to know: what did we know? When did we know it?

👉𝗔𝗻𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝗮𝗹𝗹𝘆 𝗺𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗶𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗰𝗼𝗼𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝘀 𝘀𝗲𝗮𝗺𝗹𝗲𝘀𝘀,” 𝗦𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗳𝗳 𝘀𝗮𝗶𝗱.

I am NOT happy that the Jews are a ‘Protected Class’ while Christians are attacked here in the USA and the US military actually uses Anti-Defamation League – ….𝗳𝗼𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗱 𝗶𝗻 𝟭𝟵𝟭𝟯”to stop the defamation of the Jewish people” AS A RESOURCE!!!

133 page FOIA document obtained from the Department of Defense entitled: AFSS 0910 EQUAL OPPORTUNITY AND TREATMENT INCIDENTS (EOTI) LESSON PLAN


This lesson will focus on awareness and current issues requiring the attention of future Equal Opportunity Advisors. It will also provide information that describes sources of extremism information, definitions, recruitment of DoD personnel, common themes in extremist ideologies, common characteristics of extremist organizations, DoD policies, and command functions regarding extremist activities. ……


The following references are additional sources for current extremism information:

Anti-Defamation League
• Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism
• Know Gangs
• Political Research Associates
Southern Poverty Law Center


The ADL has been cooperating with the US government for years.

The back-of-the-envelope history of the Anti-Defamation League (And yes it is pro-muslim)

…By 1937, the Anti-Defamation League had embarked on another occupation, keeping files and spying on what it considered to be communist or pro-communist organizations and individuals. In that year, a 1947 Congressional hearing revealed, it had begun providing information on the recently formed National Lawyers Guild and on individuals applying for government jobs to the original House Committee on Un-American Activities

While the ADL’s public face was that of an organization determined to rid the country of neo-Nazis and skinheads, its raison d’etre in the absence of any serious threats of anti-semitism, was not defense of Jews, per se, but defense of Israel and the intimidation and public humiliation of its critics. While that invariably gained the ADL headlines, what was hidden from the public was of equal importance. The ADL, by the late 1980s had begun one of the largest private spying operations in the United States, a fact that was discovered by the San Francisco police in 1992 when it raided the ADL office after discovering that it had been working with a rogue SF cop, Tom Gerard, who had been providing the organization with personal non-public information about a host of American citizens….

The Rothschild 1901 – 1919:

1901: The Jews from the colonies set up in Palestine by Edmond James de Rothschild, send a delegation to him which tell him, “If you wish to save the Yishuv (The Jewish settlement) first take your hands from it, and for once permit the colonists to have the possibility of correcting for themselves what needs correcting.” Edmond James de Rothschild is very angry about this and states, “I created the Yishuv, I alone. Theref

And another website:

The Balfour Declaration 12: The Hand of The Rothschilds

Behind the political enthusiasm for a Jewish homeland displayed so publicly by the War Cabinet in 1917 lay this question: who was influencing them?

Which of the small number of Zionist enthusiasts penetrated their inner circle and found favour with the Secret Elite? The primary answer was the House of Rothschild.

Not every Rothschild, no, but over the span of 1914-1917 significant Rothschilds championed the Zionist cause and were seen by the public, especially the Jewish public, as its real leaders. Baron Edmond de Rothschild in Paris was the first of the nineteenth-century Rothschilds to help Russian victims of the vile pogroms to emigrate to Palestine between 1881-2. Throughout the pre-war years, he acquired and supported several communities in Palestine. By 1903 nineteen out of twenty-eight Jewish settlements in Palestine were subsidised partly or wholly by him. It was claimed that Edmond’s commitment was not aimed at the creation of a Jewish state. [1] That is convenient, for once the First World War was underway, it was he who urged Weizmann to seize the opportunity to establish a Jewish Palestine. [2]


I might have got it wrong but as far as I remember the Awans were thought to be possibly passing information to Pakistan. Is there a connection between Pakistan and Israel, that seems unlikely, unless it was just being sold to the highest bidder.

Awans => Pakistan

“… Is there a connection between Pakistan and Israel, that seems unlikely…”

The connection between Pakistan and Israel is the BRITS. Both countries were literally MADE by the Brits.


Right, I was thinking along religious lines and of course the Awans did seem very money orientated, doing all sorts of fiddles stealing equipment and stuff.

Gail Combs

I think religion is the red herring they use to lead us astray.

For example the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was a BRITISH INVENTION!!

History of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt by the official Muslim Brotherhood website.
Early Development

In 1928, six Egyptian workers employed by British military camps in Isma’iliyya, in the Suez Canal Zone in Egypt, visited Hassan al-Banna, a young schoolteacher who they had heard preach in mosques and coffee-houses on the need for an Islamic rewnewal. “Arabs and Muslims have no status and no dignity,” they said. “They are no more than mere hirelings belonging to the foreigners…. We are unable to perceive the road to action as you perceive it….” They therefore asked him to become their leader; he accepted, founding the Society of the Muslim Brothers. (Mitchell 1969, 8; Lia 1998, 36; Carré 1983, 11)

Banna and his followers began by starting an evening school. In its first few years, the Society was focused on Islamic education, with an emphasis on teaching students how to implement an ethos of solidarity and altruism in their daily lives, rather than on theoretical issues. The General Inspector of Education was greatly impressed, particularly by the eloquent speeches of the working-class members of the Brotherhood. 

Radical Islam Created by British Intelligence – Before Its News

Dr. John Coleman, a former British Intelligence agent...states in his report on Iran’s Islamic Revolution that the Muslim Brotherhood was created by “the great names of British Middle East intelligence”…and that their mission was to “keep the Middle East backward so that its natural resource, oil, could continue to be looted…”

The Muslim Brotherhood is a London creation, forged as the standard-bearer of an ancient, anti-religious (pagan) heresy that has plagued Islam since the establishment of the Islamic community (umma) by the Prophet Mohammed in the seventh century. Representing organized Islamic fundamentalism, the organization called the Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan al-Muslimum in Arabic) was officially founded in Egypt, in 1929, by the British agent Hasan al-Banna, a Sufi mystic. Today, the Muslim Brotherhood is the umbrella under which a host of fundamentalist Sufi, Sunni, and radical Shiite brotherhoods and societies flourish…


How Britain cultivated Egypts Muslim Brotherhood in the 1940s and 1950s – frontline the hindu

1941: The Muslim Brotherhood also enjoyed the patronage of the pro-British Egyptian monarchy, which had begun to fund the Brotherhood in 1940. King Farouk saw the Brothers as a useful counter to the power of the major political party in the countrythe secular, nationalist Wafd Partyand the communists. A British intelligence report of 1942 noted that the Palace had begun to find the Ikhwan useful and has thrown its aegis over them. During this time, many Islamic societies in Egypt were sponsored by the authorities to oppose rivals or enhance the interests of the British, the Palace or other influential groups (page 40).

1942: Britain had definitely begun to finance the Brotherhood. On May 18, British embassy officials held a meeting with Egyptian Prime Minister Amin Osman Pasha, in which relations with the Muslim Brotherhood were discussed and a number of points were agreed upon. One was that subsidies from the Wafd [Party] to the Ikhwani el Muslimin [Muslim Brotherhood] would be discreetly paid by the [Egyptian] government and they would require some financial assistance in this matter from the [British] Embassy. In addition, the Egyptian government would introduce reliable agents into the Ikhwani to keep a close watch on activities and would let us [the British embassy] have the information obtained from such agents. We, for our part, would keep the government in touch with information obtained from British sources (page 45).

1951: Indications from declassified British files show that Brotherhood leaders, despite their public calls for attacks on the British, were perfectly prepared to meet them in private. By this time, the Egyptian government, in coordination with the British authorities, was offering Hodeibi enormous bribes to keep the Brotherhood from engaging in further violence against the regime, according to the Foreign Office….


Interesting information, thanks



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.

Be with me – take not – Your presence from me;
Let Your Spirit dwell – in me – let Him be;
My strength and solace – in turmoil of heart;
From me, Oh Lord – let Him never depart!

Without You, Lord – there is no breath of life;
Without You, Lord – the sorrow – it is rife;
Happiness eludes me – from my soul – it is gone;
Your peace in me – is vacant – totally withdrawn!

Hide not Your face from me – show me Your love;
Touch my heart with Your grace – sent from above;
Abandon me not – in my hour of need;
In Your great love, Lord – I am blessed indeed!

Fill me with your Spirit – right to the brim;
Let not hopelessness enter – faith be dim
Renew me – redo me – all over again;
Today – tomorrow – forever – Amen!

Infuse me – use me – for Your Glory, Lord;
Let me not forget – the truth in Your Word;
Raise me up, Lord – both steadfast and strong;
Be with me, Lord – where You only belong!

Strengthen me – Lord – oh, please hear my cry;
I don’t need to know the what, where or why;
I trust in Your judgment – Your mercy, Lord;
I trust in the truth revealed in Your Word!

I trust in Your Love poured out on the Tree;
I trust in Your Promise to always be;
Faithful and true for eyes that can see;
There for us all – who trust in Thee!

Be with me – Lord – refresh me – renew me;
This pain and discomfort – really threw me;
Jesus, come quickly – come quickly, I pray;
Let this doubt not take hold – unravel – fray!

Oh, precious, incorruptible Blood of the Lamb;
Encompass me – protect me – the sinner I am;
Enthrall me – befall me – change me within;
Blot my sin – from Thy sight – let it begin!

Wherein and where out – let the demon flee;
Far away – to the dry place – let it be;
Confined in the spaces – to do no harm;
To cause no distress – disruption – alarm!

Wash me – and cleanse me – pure white as snow;
Be near me – cheer me – wherever I go;
Lift my distress – give me some rest – I pray;
Be with me, Jesus – and love me Your Way!

“I Can’t Sugarcoat It Anymore”: Will Lewis Bluntly Defends Washington Post Shake-Up

OH, this is delicious!

…The reporter suggested that “the most cynical interpretation sort of feels like you chose two of your buddies to come in and help run the Post, and 👉we now have four white men running three newsrooms,😱 😂 …and expressed surprise at this development given Lewis’s prior commitments to diversity….

[Seems, Lewis, figured out hiring based on DIE means your Business DIES!]

At one point Lewis was asked whether he was intentionally bringing in people who come from a different culture than the Post. 👉“We are losing large amounts of money. Your audience has halved in recent years. People are not reading your stuff. I can’t sugarcoat it anymore,” 👈 😫😫😋 Lewis said. “So I’ve had to take decisive, urgent action to set us on a different path, sourcing talent that I have worked with that are the best of the best.”

He continued to take a blunt approach when asked about the “third newsroom,” specifically how it would be staffed. “I’ll be looking for people to put their hands up internally, but also sourcing talent externally,” said Lewis. (Of the “third newsroom,” Lewis said in Sunday’s memo, “The aim is to give the millions of Americans—who feel traditional news is not for them but still want to be kept informed—compelling, exciting and accurate news where they are and in the style that they want.”)

Lewis said. “It’s the most important thing: untapped audiences. If what I cause to happen is you all get it, great, but the game is up,” he said. “I’m setting up a structure where I’m not going to be guessing.”…

After just returning from Bukele’s inaugural in El Salvador it’s glaring just how truly dishonest the American coverage is. Here is the essential true story of what just happened in El Salvador. You will not find it in a single American corporate media outlet. It’s a huge reason why they are failing. 1/7
The US helped screw up El Salvador and all of Central America by ousting dozens of governments when it suited our interests. As a result of these and other forces, El Salvador was left in ruins and wracked by a 12 year civil war between communists and the government followed by more than a decade of dominance by rival gangs originally from the US with roots in satanism. 2/7

These gangs terrorized the small nation for more than a decade. They use torture and dismemberment and even human sacrifice as a matter of course. They brought El Salvador the world’s highest per capita murder rate. They took huge extortion payments from virtually every business crippling the economy. All this is our business because it resulted in a huge exodus of migrants to the US. 3/7

Under new President Nayib Bukele virtually every gang member has been put behind bars in a brand new prison he built in only 7 months. He has the highest adult prison rate per capita in the world now. The murder rate went from a peak of 103/100,000 population per year all the way down to 2.4/100,000 population per year. 4/7

This means El Salvador went from having the highest murder rate in the world to a lower murder rate than the US. Once the gangs were all locked up, the economy started coming back to life. The streets are now vibrant and safe. Most importantly for us, Illegal immigration to the US virtually stopped and in fact many law abiding Salvadorans who fled to America are returning home. 5/7

The MS13 Salvadoran gang members still in the US prefer to stay in the US and torture our citizens rather than return to face actual justice back home. Salvadorans rewarded Bukele for saving their country with polls showing him to be one of the world’s most popular leaders with high 80s popularity. He won reelection with similar numbers and now has virtually all of the legislature as well. 6/7

His inaugural address celebrated the victory and committed to focus on rebuilding the economy now that the multi decade crime problem has been fixed. His is the only solution offered to date that could actually help fix the immigration system of the US. Other countries are flying in to learn what he did and try to replicate it.

Neil, great post and I hope after this election that we can replicate the work done in El Salvador and Argentina.

 Jeanne DeSiliver@ JeannieD96030 has a tweet/truth with a great picture of FauXi. It has Ivan Raiklin over one shoulder and Brandon Fellows over the other.

Seen @ 1:17:39 It goes on to 1:20:00 with close-ups of Brandon making faces as FauXi talks. Then they have Ivan making comments.

Before that they have a Clip of MTG being interviewed by OAN just outside the hearing.
Starts at 1:04:24 with MTG in Chambers lambasting MR FauXi and the DemonRats going ballistic because she refused to call him DOCTOR.
Start at 1:13:20 for OAN interview.
Start at 1:15:45 with discussion of Christie shooting her dog for attacking livestock and kids as a contrast to what was done to those beagles.

I was hoping they had a saved clip of the interview of Brandon that was taken down so fast.

Gail Combs

This is sort of the picture.

From Brent’s substack article

 ….Trump just said on national television almost all of the missing undocumented children brought into the United States ARE DEAD.

Roll that around in your brain for a few seconds.

Your State.

Your city.


84,000+ children.….

Coincidences within Coincidences: The Silent War Against Children
The age old belief in draining the youth—traces of the death cult.

We’re told that there’s no such thing as an ancient death cult that abuses children in horrific ways as a matter of a twisted faith and deranged culture.

We’re told that if it did happen, it was long ago, and we’re oh so much more “evolved” and “civilized” today.

We’re told that it’s all a “crazy conspiracy theory” that only idiots believe.

These are the same “debunkers” who invoke Halon’s Razor, which states:

“Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.”

In my view, this is a logical fallacy. (Read why here)

It’s an extremely effective mechanism to convince otherwise intelligent people there’s no such thing as a global cult of child sex abuse. But after what you’re about to read, I challenge you to prove otherwise….comment image

It would make a nice repeat. hehe


Consistent with my prior comments predicting that SCOTUS would issue a slew of 9-0 opinions in order to counter the attacks on Thomas and Alito, two out of three opinions today were unanimous:

The third opinion today was a very interesting 5-4 split:

AZ Senator Shamp

👉“They had Hezbollah and Hamas in Mexico, and they were teaching them how to make tunnels, how to make IEDs, how to launder money…”

Our nation is in grave danger so long as our border remains wide open. Terrorists are teaming up with the cartels and are plotting attacks on our citizens.

We can’t ignore this crisis any longer. Lives are in danger!

The Republican-led Arizona State Legislature just passed the Secure the Border Act to give our law enforcement a fighting chance at protecting our state. Arizona voters will have the opportunity to consider this policy on the November ballot.

I hope this shows. It has a video:


Per Marica’s blog—
Just the News reports that Steve Bannon has been ordered to serve a 4-month prison sentence.
How “convenient”—get Bannon out of the way until just before the 2024 election.


Is it time for a third party? The Republicans, the Democrats, and the Jailbirds?


You just repeated yourself 3 times 🙂
I vote for the MAGA “Party”.

Gail Combs

And POTUS Trump did a HOSTILE TAKEOVER of the Reboobs to turn it into the MAGA PARTY.

Gail Combs

“…get Bannon out of the way until just before the 2024 election.”

Won’t do them any good because Bannon has several who can step in and take his place, perhaps on a rotating basis. Dr Peter Navarro, 😆 Kash Patel,  Raheem Kassam, Natalie Winters, General Flynn, Ivan Raiklin….

I hope you are correct on this one.

Gail Combs

Some of those people have filled in for Steve Bannon before. I am sure contingency plans were made. It is not like this is a surprise.

Also Steve has a daughter who has helped with the show before.

What is even funnier, is there are a whole heck of a lot of MAGA Americans who would give a similar answer.




I could give most of that answer from memory. I’d bet most of us here could.

Gail Combs

I was thinking just that but I figured we were representative of a much larger group.


I hope so!



Prayer Of Thanksgiving In The Evening

Praise Your holy name Heavenly Father, for granting yet another day in my life and for being with me every step of the way. Thank You for the many blessings that You have provided and the love and fellowship that I have with the friends and family that in Your grace You have placed in my life.
My heart is so thankful for all the many blessings that I enjoy day by day, and today I am once again reminded that Your mercies are new every morning and Your faithfulness endures from generation to generation.
Thank You, that I have been brought into Your family and have been made a child of God and a citizen of heaven. Words cannot express my love and devotion to You Lord
I pray that You would watch over me as I rest tonight, and that You would give me a restful nights sleep so that I may wake up in the morning refreshed in body and spirit and ready to do Your will. Guard all those that I love and may we all grow in grace and in a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ in the days that lie ahead. This I ask in His precious name,


Prayer Of Reflection On The Past Day

Loving Lord, as the day is coming to an end, I want to thank You for being with me in all that has taken place today. I also want to lay the whole day before You, asking that you would show me if there is anything that I have done to hurt or harm another person unknowingly, or if I have done anything that is displeasing in Your sight, or quenched the work of the Spirit in me, so that I may turn away from such things in the days that lie ahead.

Lord, I desire to do Your will in all things. I pray that You would cleanse me of any wrong thoughts or attitudes that may have surfaced in my heart today. Wash me in Your cleansing flood, I pray. 

Thank You, that You are a God who forgives our transgressions when we are willing to confess them to You, knowing that such cleansing before You immediately draws us back into sweet fellowship with Yourself. 

Give me a good nights rest I pray, and may I rest quietly in Your loving arms in the knowledge that in Christ, I am eternally secure, due to Your amazing grace, for which I praise You. In Jesus’ name, 



Prayer For Grace At The End Of The Day

Heavenly Father, as the day is drawing to its close I ask that Your continued love and presence be with me and with all that are Your children in Christ. Guard us through the long hours of darkness this night I pray, and keep us safe from all harm and dangers that may try to cross our threshold. 

Give us, I pray, an untroubled night of rest and quietness of heart. May we be refreshed and renewed in body, soul and spirit as we rest our weary hearts in You through the hours of the night. 

Lord, I pray that by Your great grace and mercy, You would grant us untroubled sleep so that we may rise up in the morning strong to do Your bidding. May we all rejoice for the dawn of a new day, knowing that Your mercies are new every morning. In Jesus’ name,




Thank you duchess 😀

Transhumanism – The End Game

14 of 15 Will Go, supports, Transhumanism – The End Game

Gail Combs


Remember this is something that Epstein and Gates are interested in.


What is transhumanism and how does it affect you?

This article is published in collaboration with The Conversation.

Biological evolution takes place over generations. But imagine if it could be expedited beyond the incremental change envisaged by Darwin to a matter of individual experience. Such things are dreamt of by so-called “transhumanists”. Transhumanism has come to connote different things to different people, from a belief system to a cultural movement, a field of study to a technological fantasy. You can’t get a degree in transhumanism, but you can subscribe to it, invest in it, research its actors, and act on its tenets.

So what is it? The term “transhumanism” gained widespread currency in 1990, following its formal inauguration by Max More, the CEO of Alcor Life Extension Foundation. It refers to an optimistic belief in the enhancement of the human condition through technology in all its forms. Its advocates believe in fundamentally enhancing the human condition through applied reason and a corporeal embrace of new technologies.

It is rooted in the belief that humans can and will be enhanced by the genetic engineering and information technology of today, as well as anticipated advances, such as bioengineering, artificial intelligence, and molecular nanotechnology. The result is an iteration of Homo sapiens enhanced or augmented, but still fundamentally human….comment image
