1 KINGS 19:9, 11-16

9And there he came to a cave, and lodged there; and behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said to him, “What are you doing here, Eli’jah?” 11And he said, “Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the LORD.” And behold, the LORD passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD, but the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the LORD was not in the earthquake; 12and after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. 13And when Eli’jah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Eli’jah?” 14He said, “I have been very jealous for the LORD, the God of hosts; for the people of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thy altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.” 15And the LORD said to him, “Go, return on your way to the wilderness of Damascus; and when you arrive, you shall anoint Haz’ael to be king over Syria; 16and Jehu the son of Nimshi you shall anoint to be king over Israel; and Eli’sha the son of Shaphat of A’bel-meho’lah you shall anoint to be prophet in your place.

I started out wanting to do a tropical rainforest, then pull back to show that it was in a repurposed Zeppelin hangar near Berlin, Germany, but I couldn’t find a video with the right vibe.

Some great comments below that.

The communist have taken over our country. This is what they do! This happened in China and Russia when the communist took over. Millions died of starvation. They ran a coup d’etat during the election, and they are bringing in an army of soldiers. They are attacking our food supply. Farmland, chicken production, meat packing, and cattle ranching. They have destroyed oil production and allowed the devaluation of the US dollar. THIS IS A WAR AND THEY ARE WINNING. They need to be stopped NOW!

Please take a look at my research just above.

And, I just asked you a question over on Gab Chat, if you could take a look.

cthulhu

A major problem is that the malls are fully loaded with “parasites” — governments, lenders, and insurance — that are based on financial models that are blown-up now and will likely never be seen again.

Of course, there is the possibility that the structure cannot be maintained, the power cannot be furnished, and the space cannot be air conditioned at any reasonable cost….in which case the place is a tear-down.

And, mind you, these models didn’t just arise out of nowhere. Often, the mall developer would project wondrous profits and borrow money based on said projections. Insurance would be required to protect such marvelous assets. Governments would levy taxes based on these castles in the air….

If there is one word to sum up the concept behind Austrian Economics, it is “malinvestment”. If your projections cannot be turned into accomplishment in the real world, you must bite the bullet and take the losses — anything else you try to do will only make things worse. Sometimes, you can mitigate some of the loss by repurposing things “for lesser ends” — which may be lesser ends than even the raw materials might have served — but trying to pretend you have golden castles in the air has a “best by” date that passes quickly.

TradeBait2

Knoxville recently worked with Amazon and had a large secondary, two story mall razed and the subject land along an interstate repurposed for a large regional distribution facility. Simon owned and operated it until they handed the keys to the city with only a half dozen tenants left in it and all outparcel business shuttered except a charity thrift store.

Amazon completed the project and immediately mothballed it. With the population growth in the region they will presumably staff and operate at a more opportune time.

The city looked at every other option for repurpose and found nothing that would economically work. The conversion plus operating and maintenance costs are simply too high. The other, larger mall in a better, more accessible location is still doing well.

Robert Baker

A major economic reality is that whatever your business model, if it is consumer based (not government) it will only thrive as long as the customer base has money or credit. When either runs out so does the viability of your business.

TradeBait2

Agree. Which can be be intentionally moved one way or the other by various governmental interventions.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

And so long as the consumers actually want your product. If something else comes along and does the job better, you are SOL. Think cordless phones, or land lines in general, versus smart phones.

cthulhu

Of course, I still use a land-line and had a flip-phone as long as I could….

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Yes, but in terms of the totl market, people treated smart phones (and cell phones in general) as cordless phones with an effectively infinite range from the base station.

I should have said “cell phones” instead of “smart phones”

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

…I mean, just because a lot of us here don’t think it was a change for the better, has nothing to do with the market as a whole’s perception.

Malinvestment: The Economic Theory Behind the Harms of Ultra-Loose Monetary Policy

….Malinvestment is a term used by the Austrian school of economics to denote misinvestments or inefficient investments that occur due to a distortion of price signals caused by artificial monetary expansion. Malinvestment manifests itself above all in the boom phase of the economic cycle, when banks reduce the interest rate and increase credit, inducing entrepreneurs to undertake projects that turn out to be unprofitable.

Hayek’s business cycle theory explains that malinvestment is due to a combination of two factors: fractional reserve banking and an artificially low interest rate. Fractional reserve banking is the practice of banks to lend out a portion of customer deposits, keeping only a fraction as reserve. This allows banks to create money out of thin air and to expand credit beyond the amount of real savings available. The artificially low interest rate is the result of monetary expansion, which lowers the cost of money and makes long-term investment more attractive….

This misses the OTHER Problem.

  • Fed Reserve LENDS funny money to Gov’t.
  • Government lends/grants $$$ to a Corporation such as Molten Metal Technology Inc. that was HYPED by Al Gore.
  • The CABAL runs a STOCK SCAM and then leaves the Rubes not only holding the bag Stock Wise, but ALSO having to pay for the grants tax wise.

Molten Metal Technology Inc.

The tawdry tale of the top two global warming gurus in the business world goes all the way back to Earth Day, April 17, 1995 when the future author of An Inconvenient Truth travelled to Fall River, Massachusetts, to deliver a green sermon at the headquarters of Molten Metal Technology Inc. (MMTI). MMTI was a firm that proclaimed to have invented a process for recycling metals from waste. Gore praised the Molten Metal firm as a pioneer in the kind of innovative technology that can save the environment, and make money for investors at the same time.

The firm was run by Strong and a group of Gore intimates, including Peter Knight, the firm’s registered lobbyist, and Gore’s former top Senate aide.

The company had received more than $25 million in U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research and development grants, but had failed to prove that the technology worked on a commercial scale. [THEY NEVER DID PILOT PLANT STUDIES!!!] The company would go on to receive another $8 million in federal taxpayers cash, at that point, its only source of revenue.

With Al Gore’s Earth Day as a Wall Street calling card, Molten Metal’s stock value soared to $35 a share, a range it maintained through October 1996. But along the way, DOE scientists had balked at further funding. When in March 1996, corporate officers concluded that the federal cash cow was about to run dry, they took action: Between that date and October 1996, seven corporate officers including Maurice Strong sold off $15.3 million in personal shares in the company, at top market value, $35. On Oct. 20, 1996 a Sunday the company issued a press release, announcing for the first time, that DOE funding would be vastly scaled back, and reported the bad news on a conference call with stockbrokers.

On Monday, the stock plunged by 49%, soon landing at $5 a share. By early 1997, furious stockholders had filed a class action suit against the company and its directors. Ironically, one of the class action lawyers had tangled with Maurice Strong in another insider trading case, involving a Swiss company called AZL Resources, chaired by Strong, who was also a lead shareholder. The AZL case closely mirrored Molten Metal, and in the end, Strong and the other AZL partners agreed to pay $5 million to dodge a jury verdict, when eyewitness evidence surfaced of Strong’s role in scamming the value of the company stock up into the stratosphere, before selling it off.

This MODEL has been used OVER AND OVER to scam tax payers and stock holders.

cthulhu

Indeed, there is “organic” malinvestment, where actual entrepreneurs overshoot market conditions based on the premise of easy money…..but, then, there is “mandated” malinvestment — where tawdry concerns about making money are thrown overboard in search of other goals. Typically, this is done by governments — but not always. An example of non-governmental “mandated” malinvestment can be seen in Episode 3 of “The Acolyte”.

cthulhu

It should also be noted that a substantial amount of “mandated” malinvestment is simple graft.

Wondering if the Jervois lithium facility is owned by China or the Rothchilds?

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

GREAT question.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

They’re plying ESG as a wheedler with Western governments. Sounds more Rothschild than China.

https://www.juniorminingnetwork.com/junior-miner-news/press-releases/2313-tsx-venture/jrv/138634-jervois-suspends-final-construction-at-idaho-cobalt-operations.html

The following works either way on who owns ultimately owns the facilities.

If the suspicion that the PTB have switched their backing to TRUMP is correct, IMO it would be due to two things.

(1) The realization that OBAMA finally showed his hand against Israel and Jews in general with October 7 and PalPal violence in America, and the Jewish donor class no longer trusts either Obama or Basement Boy, despite some recent fakery by Basement Boy in a pro-Jewish direction. Too little, too late, by HUSSEIN. The Jewish voting public is, as always, way behind the curve, still backing their enemies, so ignore that – it’s the big donors that matter.

(2) There is finally realization that the elite cannot control China their way, and Trump’s way is the only working model.

Among the smarter Jewish donors, there may even be realization that CCP assets and Chinese money on campus were always destined to turn against Israel and Jews, consciously or unconsciously (nature of Marxism), and are behind the PalPal menace.

Interesting times may have just gotten more interesting in a karmic way.

YUP. I hear you.

I can not find anything about Jervois being given the green light to mine in Idaho.

I did find that they ceased building in Idaho in 2023:

“Consequently, smaller-scale and lower-grade mines would likely be marginal producers with higher capital intensity and operating costs, meaning they would struggle to remain profitable and operational amid lower mineral prices. For example, Molycorp, the former owner of the Mountain Pass rare-earths mine in California, declared bankruptcy in 2015 when rare earth prices fell; last year, Jervois suspended final construction at its Idaho Cobalt Operations mine amid low cobalt prices.”

https://www.defenseone.com/ideas/2024/05/west-needs-produce-more-rare-earths-heres-how-governments-can-help/397010/

And I found this on the Idaho Governor’s website:

“Boise, Idaho – Stakeholders including surface water users and groundwater users have been working around the clock on a deal to avoid water curtailment for hundreds of eastern Idaho farmers this year, with negotiations nearing the finish line this week.

Governor Little has been focused on bringing all interests together to ensure an Idaho-based solution as underground water levels in the Eastern Snake Plain Aquifer continue to dwindle. Water from the aquifer feeds the Snake River.

“I am encouraged by the progress we’re making to find a path forward to protect farmers and the supply of water for the year. The two sides working together is far better than any government-imposed solution. While the terms of any deal likely won’t be perfect for either side – compromise never is – it would provide water for crops this year. Once we get a deal across the finish line, we will shift our focus to a long-term solution as outlined in Director Weaver’s June 5 letter.

 “I know we can do this. Idahoans have always come together to resolve our differences and find a path forward,” Governor Little said.”

Miranda Devine:

Trump has the stage set to nail Joe Biden for his lies about Hunter’s laptop

The last time Joe Biden met Donald Trump on a debate stage, he lied that his son Hunter’s laptop was Russian disinformation, “a Russian plant” and “a bunch of garbage.”

This was two days after Biden’s senior campaign adviser Antony Blinken induced Mike Morell, a former acting CIA director, to write the dishonest “Dirty 51” letter claiming the laptop “has all the classic earmarks of a Russian intelligence operation” and that “the Russians are involved in the Hunter Biden email issue.”

The Biden campaign was desperately scrambling for a way to respond to The Post’s laptop scoops about Joe meeting Hunter’s foreign clients when he was VP.

So Morell got 50 other former senior intelligence officials, mostly from the CIA, to sign the letter.

“Campaign will be thrilled,” he wrote in emails obtained by congressional investigators. 

“We think Trump will attack Biden on the issue at this week’s debate and we want to give the VP a talking point to use in response.”

On that debate stage back in October 2020, after he was done lying about the laptop, Biden looked into the camera and told the American people: “You know his character. You know my character. You know my reputation is for honor and telling the truth.”

We sure do.

At their debate later this month, Trump will get his first opportunity to confront Biden about his lies. 

Now that the laptop has been entered into the official record as government Exhibit 16 in the Delaware District Court, verified by the FBI as belonging to his son, and used for key evidence that convicted Hunter of three felony gun charges this week, Biden should be forced to come clean about his corrupt involvement in his family’s global influence-peddling scheme.

To this day, the liberal media, with egg on their face for naively toeing the party line, still can’t bring themselves to confirm the laptop.

Even after the ruling, the New York Times doubted the laptop’s veracity by declaring its contents are “unproven.” 

It falsely claims that the FBI’s only authentication effort to confirm that the laptop was Hunter’s was by matching the serial number with his iCloud account.

Hunter and his lawyers are still pretending that computer repair shop owner John Paul Mac Isaac or Rudy Giuliani or somebody “tampered” with the contents of the laptop.

But as IRS whistleblower Supervisory Special Agent Gary Shapley told Congress, in the weeks after the FBI took possession of the laptop on Dec. 9, 2019, the bureau’s computer forensics experts performed a specific technical review of all the files on the computer…

scott467

“Biden should be forced to come clean about his corrupt involvement in his family’s global influence-peddling scheme.”

______________

But he won’t, he will never ‘come clean’ in a thousand million lifetimes… why would he?

It would gain him nothing and cost him everything.

He has zero incentive to tell the truth (if he even remembers what truth is), and every incentive to just lie.

So he will 100% lie, straight into the camera, right through his lying teeth. He might shout or he might whisper, but he certainly won’t hesitate to lie. His lie doesn’t have to be believable, it doesn’t have to even make sense, and it almost certainly won’t… how could it? 😂

There are lots of tried-and-true ways his team can deal with it, there just has to be some kind of sound coming out of his mouth when it’s time for his reply, and the media (and PR team) will take care of the rest for him.

Whether that means the moderator will bail him out, or there’s a sudden loss of power to the debate studio and when power resumes they’re magically onto the next question, or whether that means Brandon’s lie response is blacked out by the MSM and censored from every online platform besides Rumble and Twitter, or whether the damage control team needs to ‘rehabilitate’ his response on all the Sunday news shows, they will do whatever they need to do in order to minimize the damage and bury the controversy and then a day or two later, deny that it ever happened or say they’ve already addressed it and won’t be going over it again. Simple. They can do that routine in their sleep.

If it goes badly for Brandon, only people who watch the debate will even know the question was asked, if that’s how they need to play it.

The people who support Brandon will still support Brandon regardless, and that’s all Brandon’s team (and support apparatus) care about.

They know Brandon voters don’t care about the laptop or Brandon’s personal involvement in criminal activity, so all Team Brandon has to do is basic damage control for any of Brandon’s whoppers, and he survives easily — because Brandon-voters don’t care that he’s a lying corrupt POS.

Because they’re just like him. They relate to his corruption, NPD, criminal activity and sexual weirdness, that’s why they vote for him.

It’s only Republicans who always labor under the delusion that Brandon’s next ‘gotcha’ will be his last 😂

The latter combined with a vent killed an extended family member.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Those vents. Don’t get me started. Bill Gates bears much responsibility for that, IMO.

At the absolute best possible spin, the deaths of tens of thousands of people happened because his lazy simulation picked ARDS and vents as a reasonable solution to a hypothetical virus, and when it “happened” “for real”, they just jumped to stupid training, much like social distancing and all the other nonsense. And THAT is very much like “The Great Leap Forward” in China, that starved millions to death.

Whether incompetence or designed evil, or both, communism kills.

Just a note.
Amazon now sells people Ivermectin (Stromcel sic…brand) through their pharmacy, 3mg dose, 90 dollars for a three day supply, something like 12 or 24 pills. Expensive, not near enough, but moving in the right direction.

kalbokalbs

Yes, seems to be the right direction. If one trusts Amazon to deliver for this miracle medicine.

Amazon likely requires a script. That is a problem.

Corrupt Feds can say No Ivermectin, anytime they want AND Amazon will not deliver.

FDA, CDC, NIH all them Nazi’s can simply say, No to horse medicine.

Health insurance companies can simply say they won’t cover the medicine/cost.

Quacks gotta write the script. Since 2020, I’ve asked three quacks for Ivermectin script. NO is their answer. Perhaps this has also changed.

Edit.

Poked around a bit. Seems only 3mg available. Not 6mg or 12mg. OK, can be worked around.

Idiot statement buried in Amazon minutia.
“The benefit, which is administered by inside Rx, LLC, has restrictions on some medications if you’re over 65 or have insurance with Medicare, Medicaid, or Tricare.”Appears Feds Will Say No.Wonder if Blue Cross and the like will pay up, limit or also, Say No.

Hi guys…I’m spending the night at my parents so my dad can get a solid night’s sleep & I can help Mom, if she needs it. It’s been a week since her broken arm surgery & the splint should come off in a week, if all goes well. She’s had some ups & downs but was doing well when I got here & ever since. Earlier yesterday she had some verbal confusion (that she was aware of) which seemed to clear up after a nap. Those 80-somethings are hanging pretty tough, though both tend to be tired out since all of this upheaval.

Mom heard from my cousin that her son did well with the kidney transplant & his new kidney seems to be working for him. I don’t know any other details.

Last I spoke w/ my oldest son his daughter Finley‘s specialty eye appointment hadn’t happened yet. So still waiting on info there.

This Sunday my husband will be playing bass for the first time at his “new” church, where our 2 oldest sons & youngest DIL & 2 granddaughters all attend. Hopefully we’ll be able to get All our kids out to support him on this inaugural worship adventure, especially since it’s also Father’s Day.

Having experienced similar bouts of ‘confusion’ with our elderlies, I always assess three things … are they on a new med; are they drinking enough daily water (they often forget cuz they aren’t thirsty or cuz then they gotta pee); and the real hidden one … a UTI. My DILs mother had so many urinary tract infections ( wheel chair bound) but typically undiagnosed until she became disoriented followed by an urgent care visit.

Valerie,

Do not forget the Coconut oil (REFINED and not ORGANIC) plus Lion’s Mane Mushroom. Also Hubby improved DRASTICALLY after we started making meat loaf a couple times a week. He now has beef every day. Also if you use 93% you can ADD the coconut oil to the beef and make sure it is eaten. 🤗

From what I have seen, I think poor nutrition is a MAJOR problem in older folks.

Coconut oil improves brain function in Alzheimer’s patients

Alzheimer’s: Coconut Oil to Feed the Brain.

Consumption of coconut oil prompts the body to produce a substance that is the best nourishment for brain cells – and can protect our little grey cells from dementia….

Typical: A Disrupted Energy Metabolism

Very early on – often many years before the first signs of dementia become noticeable – the sugar metabolism of the brain is disrupted. If the brain cells are not provided with enough sugar, energy supply grinds to a halt. Without sufficient ‘fuel’, neither signal transfer nor ‘waste disposal’ works properly. The harmful waste products typical of Alzheimer’s disease (amyloid plaques) and defective cell structures (neurofibrillary tangles) accumulate, and the first breakdowns in function occur. At some point, cells begin to be destroyed and the brain begins to shrink. Yet it doesn’t have to come to this, because we can actively help to keep our brain fit and healthy for as long as possible…

Gail, why is refined Coconut oil recommended over organic?

By ‘93%’, are you referring to the purity of the refined coconut oil?

Happy go lucky

I think she means if you buy the 93% lean beef, then you can add coconut oil to the meatloaf to make it tastier and the patient will consume the coconut oil for sure that way.

Although not sure why refined, never heard that before 🤔

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

WHERE ARE WE NOW?

Is your brain close to being fried
Can you believe how much they lied
Can you imagine what they did
The evil they devised and kept hid

Is this a military operation
That is really running our nation
Or is it a God-centered blessing
That will leave the enemy confessing

They claim we are in an information war
Well if that is true what is the score
How far are we interdictory
How close are we to victory 

Our patience it is wearing thin
As we traverse thru the storm we’re in
How close are we to the end
Of this horror movie penned

There is one thing that is certain
The drawing of the veiled curtain
As their evil plot it thickens
From dark to light it quickens

The battlefield has forever been
Between good and evil from within
The imbalance caused by ignorance
Left us all shrink-wrapped in a trance

Until we awakened right on cue
We had no idea of what to do 
Our daily agony just lengthened
Until we gathered and strengthened

Infiltrated extensively to the max
With enemy operatives in packs
Mesmerized imbibed and bribed
By the powers of darkness ascribed

Only God can disband this formidable foe
One that travels back and forth to and fro
That inhabits weak unsuspecting hosts
That of his successes he often boasts

The remnant petitioned the Throne of Grace
To bombard the enemy and deter his pace
With fire, fury and force He will outpace
With His Army of Angels He will displace

As pharaoh in his arrogance He smote
The Corrupt Cabal will miss the boat
We will be free as He meant us to be 
God will save America soon you’ll see

I SAID A LITTLE PRAYER

I said a little prayer for You
And You and You and You
It was so instantaneous 
Cause I care so much for You!

I asked Our Heavenly Father
To bless each and every one
From early in the morning
Until the day is done.

I asked Our Heavenly Physician
To heal you; make you whole
To reach inside of you and touch
Your mind, body, and soul!!!

I asked the Heavenly Angels
To attend to all your needs
To lift you up and comfort you
And help you plant those seeds!!!

 I asked the Holy Spirit
To guide, inspire, and direct
Every single step you take
Mind, body, and soul perfect.

I asked those who are suffering
Remember one important thing
After the trial is over
His blessings He will bring!!!

I asked God for some laughter
The best medicine we know
To ease your pain wherever
As you come and as you go.

But most of all I asked God
To heal your aching heart
And from you never never
To leave you or depart!!!

Just heard on the news that Wells Fargo Bank has fired some people for using a mouse jiggler instead of working (I looked it up there is such a thing). But if their only measure of work was keeping their screen alive what were they there in the first place.

TradeBait2

The problem with uncontrolled hiring is that it involves DEI and other non-productive initiative oriented practices that do not have anything to do with making profits. Wells has been in trouble financially for some time and it has hit the eject headcount stage for the non-productive.

Most large orgs have lazy, incompetent middle managers who play the annual budget game and do enough to just get by. Senior leaders are too busy playing company politics and in society to notice. Eventually it all catches up and they start scrambling to protect their nest. Publicly traded, Wall Street investment expectations, rating agencies, regulators, etc. bring the wake-up calls.

pgroup2

Everybody’s gotta serve somebody. LMAO at the scurrying drones.  😂 

mollypitcher5

I personally know of a Morgan Stanley employee that uses this or something like it while “working” remotely.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yikes.

Likely comes from bad management that watches for mouse jiggling during “core hours” or something of the sort. Bad measurements of some kind.

Bad metrics not only get bad numbers – they induce bad behaviors.

We pioneered remote work, and much of the payoff came from highly productive employees working odd hours, in bursts, around family stuff. How they got great quantity and quality was not our business, though the speculation is that the setting is ideal for extended, intense, solitary work more regularly than possible on-site.

The big picture was to use the normal big metrics on productivity, and to avoid remote micro-management, which would only kill the golden goose. Get them what they needed, keep them working, retain the good employees and their productivity through all life events.

Obviously, DEI thinkers can fuck that up. I can just see the ChiCom plants suggesting mouse-watching strategies to management, and jigglers to their own slackers.

The main problem with good remote workers is that they don’t do the on-site strutting necessary to enter management, and typically don’t WANT to become on-site and/or managers.

pgroup2

DEI thinkers can fuck that everything up.

FIFY.

I’ve been there. I had a manager once who was formerly an elementary school teacher. She micro-managed so much that it seemed like she was stalking me. Eeek, run away. Run away.

mollypitcher5

The sort of funny thing is that more than likely she is considered a DEI hire (by race) however she’s very smart so they at least managed to hire a smart girl, a major slave to wokism though

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

and typically don’t WANT to become on-site and/or managers.

And yet in many companies your advancement options if you want to remain technical, rather than pointy-haired-boss, are limited. I’ve workd for companies that claimed to have a technical career path, but in practice it has always been very limited.

So you have people “wanting” to go into management because it’s the only way to rake in fairly good money.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The corporate computers where I work will lockscreen after five minutes of inactivity. You have about 2 seconds after the screen goes black to smack the mouse to prevent it.

And no, I’m not goofing off, I do most of my work on a different network, one for developing software.

This ridiculously short timeout has tempted many to use mouse jigglers.

Valerie Curren asked me this last night about Operation Gladio:

Is this one of those things that you might gather together into its own post, is it that crucial?

And yes I think it deserves a DEEP DIVE.

Unfortunately I have time constraints. —

FENCE!! TREE CUTTING😬 (I hate using a chain saw since I am left handed…) and a new building. 🙄 Hubby is not able to help much because of his balance and shaking problems. Also I need to help a neighbor with HIS fence and get manure to his aunt for her garden.

Most of my neighbors are relatives and they have more or less adopted us Yanks. 😍

They help us too so it works out well all round.

pgroup2

Dang! Whatever you do, don’t retire.  😮 

Gail Combs

Retire??? What is the meaning of that word?

I am in for a cooling off break and then I need to go out and deal with fixing some stuff on the set of paddocks I am readying.

We use intense grazing where you have long narrow paddocks and switch the animals to a new area frequently. If you want decent pastures for your horses this method is a MUST IMHO. Horses are much harder on a pasture compared to a cow, sheep or goat.

Horses and ponies are wasteful grazers, stripping the best bits of a pasture and leaving the worst to grow rank and rough.

Depending on how large the pasture is, you can end up with what is called a ‘lawn’ that is a continuously grazed area and ultimately becomes bare dirt if it is not allowed to recover. Horses will actually MAKE a bare patch so they have a place to roll and coat their skin with dirt as a deterrent to biting insects.

Meanwhile the horse/pony will deposit manure in the ‘Rough’ BUT they are not interested in wading into the tall rank weeds so they leave it at the edge of the rough. Thus over time the rough grows larger and larger and the lawn, smaller and smaller.

To combat this you need to MOVE the animals, MOW the rough and then DRAG the pasture/paddock to break up the manure and spread it. This not only distributes the ‘fertilizer’ more evenly, by breaking the manure up and removing it from the nice COOL MOIST rough, thereby helping to desiccate the worm eggs. Also you remove the animals so the worm eggs hatch BUT there is no host — OOPS.

On top of that you place the animal (Cow, sheep, goat horse) in a stall or sacrifice area WORM THEM and WAIT 48 hours so the worm eggs are not deposited in the pasture. LINK I learned this decades ago from the Aussies. It is FINALLY becoming common knowledge here in the USA.

Careful if you go too deep you might end up stuck down here with me 😁.

Left this on Bad Lands story on Operation Gladio Primer in reply to another post eluding to something (what? didn’t say), happening 6 thousand years ago. So gave him my version which went something like this…

The only thing I can think of from that time period would be from the Pyramid Text.

Utterance 254 from https://www.pyramidtextsonline.com/translation.html#passnorth

276: To say the words:

“The Great (Uraeus) fumigates the Bull of Nekhen (Hierakonpolis).

The heat of the fiery breath is against you,

you who are about the shrine (kAr)!

O Great God whose name is unknown, (bring) at once a meal of the Unique Lord.

O lord of the Horizon (Ax.t), make place for Unas.

If you fail to make place for Unas, Unas will pronounce a curse against his father Geb:

the earth shall not speak any more;

Geb shall not be able to defend himself.

(He) whom Unas finds on his way, he will eat him piecemeal.

The hnt-pelican announces (sr), the ennead(psD.t)-pelican comes out.

The Great One rises. The enneads speak: completely dammed-off shall be the land.

279: The two ridges of the mountain (on both sides of the Nile valley) shall be united.

The two banks of the river will be joined.

The roads will be hidden from the passers-by.

The steps (rwd.w) will be annihilated for those who go up.

Make tight the rope (of the boat), sail the road of heaven!

Strike the ball on the meadow of Hapi (Apis)!

______________End of that Utterance_______________

Unas was the last Pharo for the 5th Dynasty. His mad writings decorate his tomb and are the first instance known as the Pyramid Text, the first real writings coming out of Ancient Egypt. His family who would of been complicit in the above never discussed event (hello Oxford and British Royal Society of Science) consisted of the entire 6th Dynasty and would have been involved in covering up the disaster visited upon the world. Egypt didn’t begin to recover until the 11th Dynasty and didn’t officially declare the event until the 18th and 20th Dynasties in the form of a Myth called “The Book of Heavenly Cow” even though said Myth was likely in existence during and perhaps before Unas’s time.

The Book of Heavenly Cow established in writing the Devine Right of Kings to wipe out their entire populations when they were in revolt.

From there we can likely move on to Rome where the military was an arm of commercial enterprises and somehow will have to trace it back to British East India Tea Company where we can likely connect these histories.

It all fits like a glove the Fabian Societies ambitions for world domination.

So yeah, I left off Ethical Skeptic’s “Hidden in Plain Sight” theory and has moved on to something more demonstrable. Unas flooded the Nile River. Both sides. I have much more on this never discussed history and it’s wider implications but it might need it’s own page. 😮🙄😏😉

IMO, the die has been cast. Truly, good or bad, nothing can stop what is coming. As a result, position yourself and families for the eventual outcome. As DePat revealed in the X message from Ezra above. The post below adds to it.

https://www.rothschildandco.com/en/newsroom/press-releases/2024/02/randco-expands-middle-east-reach-with-new-riyadh-office/

You need permission and connections to open an office in SA. The NWO is on its deathbed. SA through PDT is the new world financial mediator. The GOP Brutus cons coming to support PDT is revealing. Which also means he and patriot supporters have provided a path for them to retain their financial standing in the new world system that is being implemented.

TradeBait2

It is actually quite easy to establish separate state economies based on their own currencies. Our forefathers were quite good at it. You just need a federal currency for the enumerated powers funding. Establish the fiduciary exchange facilitators and basis (gold or other) for interstate and federal transactions – done.

Even coal mining towns 75-80 years ago had their own currencies used to trade in the local economy. These were precursors to the Bitcoins of the world.

If we are indeed a representative republic then it follows that all states have that right as confirmed by SCOTUS. It is the path forward to stop the endless wars, balance the budgets, kill the market bubbles, etc.

Personally along with the majority of people in Tennessee, we no longer desire to fund the idgits of America who spend public funds indiscriminately for frivolous, perverted, stupid and criminal things when the use of funds is not enumerated per the Constitution. It is past time to kill some golden gooses in DC.

If a blue state then wants to destroy themselves through excess spending, opening their doors to illegals and sanctuary cities, BLM/Antifa, and so on – have at it. It stops at the border.

“Today, we make another specific, real peace proposal. If Kiev and the Western capitals refuse it, as they have previously, then ultimately, it is their matter. Their political and moral responsibility for the continuation of bloodshed,”

“Ukrainian troops must fully withdraw from Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions – specifically from the entire territory of these regions within their administrative borders as they existed when they joined Ukraine. Once Kiev announces its readiness for this and begins the actual withdrawal of troops from these regions, as well as formally renounces plans to join NATO, we will immediately cease fire and start negotiations,”

“Our fundamental position is as follows: a neutral, non-aligned, non-nuclear status for Ukraine, along with its demilitarization and de-Nazification. These parameters were broadly agreed upon during the Istanbul negotiations in 2022,”

“We are ready to sit at the negotiation table tomorrow, fully aware of the unique legal circumstances. Despite these, there are legitimate authorities, even according to their constitution, with whom we can negotiate.”

“The situation with the cancelation of elections is a reflection of the very nature of the Kiev regime, which has its roots in the 2014 armed coup and is intertwined with it. The fact that, by canceling elections, they continue to cling to power – these actions are prohibited by Article 5 of the Ukrainian Constitution,”

“The current tragic chapter in Ukraine’s history began with the violent seizure of power, the unconstitutional coup in 2014. The source of power of the current Kiev regime is the armed coup, and now the circle has closed: executive power in Ukraine is once again, as in 2014, usurped and held unlawfully.”

Good guy, Bad guy?? I am not sure which.
The Man Who Speaks Softly—and Commands a Big Cyber Army — WIRED
Meet General Paul Nakasone. He reined in chaos at the NSA and taught the US military how to launch pervasive cyberattacks. And he did it all without you noticing.

IN THE YEARS before he became America’s most powerful spy, Paul Nakasone acquired an unusually personal understanding of the country’s worst intelligence failures.

Growing up, he was reared on his father Edwin’s recollections of December 7, 1941: how Edwin, then age 14, was eating a bowl of cornflakes with Carnation powdered milk when he saw Japanese Zeros racing past the family’s screen door on Oahu on their way to attack Pearl Harbor. They were so close that Edwin, who would grow up to become an Army intelligence officer, could see one of the pilots. “I can still remember to this day,” Edwin would recall years later…

  :wpds_arrow: Over the next 15 years, as America waged the resulting war on terror, Paul Nakasone became one of the nation’s founding cyberwarriors—an elite group that basically invented the doctrine that would guide how the US fights in a virtual world. By 2016 he had risen to command a group called the Cyber National Mission Force, and he was hard at work waging cyberattacks against the Islamic State when the US suffered another ambush by a foreign adversary: the Kremlin’s assault on the 2016 presidential election.

This attack, however, happened not with a bang but with a slow, insidious spread. As it unfolded, Nakasone lived through the confusing experience inside Fort Meade—the onyx-black headquarters of both the National Security Agency and a then-fledgling military entity called US Cyber Command. 👉As sketchy intelligence on Russian meddling coalesced through the summer and fall of 2016, his colleagues were so caught off-guard that one of the most senior leaders of Cyber Command told me he remembers learning about the election interference mainly in the newspaper. “We weren’t even focused on it,” the leader says. “It was just a blind spot.”

[So that is NOT Nakasone but a colleage who said that about Russia, Russia, Russia. -GC]

Nakasone inherited and then steadied an NSA in crisis, shaken by years of security breaches, chronic brain drain, and antagonism from a president obsessed with a supposed “deep state” operation to undermine him. Nakasone’s Cyber Command, meanwhile, is a once-restrained institution that has been unshackled to fight the nation’s enemies online. A quiet beneficiary of Donald Trump’s details-be-damned leadership philosophy, Nakasone has found himself with unparalleled, historic power—with more online firepower at his disposal than the US military has ever fielded before, as well as more latitude to execute individual missions and target adversaries than any military commander has ever been given. It’s as if during the Cold War the White House had delegated targeting authority to the commander in charge of maintaining the nation’s missile silos.

Nakasone’s offensive cyber strategy, which was developed under the eye of Trump’s former national security adviser John Bolton, represents a paradigm shift in how the US confronts its adversaries online. Rather than waiting to respond to an attack, Nakasone and US Cyber Command have shifted to talk of “persistent engagement,” “defending forward,” and “hunting forward,” amorphous terms that encompass everything from mounting digital assaults on ISIS and Iran’s air defense systems to laying the groundwork for taking down Russia’s electrical grid.

While the precise operations remain tightly classified, and only three have been publicly reported—a 2018 campaign against the Russian Internet Research Agency, a 2019 attack on Iran, and a recent operation aimed at disrupting the very large Trickbot botnet—it is likely that Nakasone has already, in his short, two-year tenure, launched more cyberattacks against US adversaries than Fort Meade had initiated in the rest of its history….

RAC

Bad guy it appears from that  👎 

litenmaus

Bad Guy!

March 29, 2021
[…] “Several members of the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday voiced their support for expanded authorities for the NSA and U.S. Cyber Command to conduct more intelligence gathering domestically, something that the Biden administration already is exploring, according to Gen. Paul Nakasone, who leads both agencies.”

“Former NSA general counsel Glenn Gertstell has argued that an expansion of NSA authorities to collect domestic intelligence is overdue. “It can’t possibly be the case that the Fourth Amendment ties our hands in such a way that we just have to sit there and watch the Chinese romp through our infrastructure,” he told the Wall Street Journal in March. The Fourth Amendment protects against unreasonable searches and NSA Director Nakasone cited it as a key obstacle to potential expansion of the NSA’s powers domestically.”

If this is a duplicate, it is important enough to repeat.

GWP, Joe Hoft – ABLECHILD: Is the FBI Using “Legacy Tokens” to Shield Mental Health Records and Psychotropic Drug Cocktails of Mass Shooters From The Public?

Republished with permission from AbleChild

According to recently released information about the Covenant School shooter, Audrey Hale, psychiatric “treatment” was part of Hale’s life since early childhood. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department (MNPD) were aware of this important information within days of the shooting but have refused to share it with the public. Why?

Recall that on March 27 of last year, Hale deliberately traveled to the Covenant School with the sole purpose of taking lives. The mentally ill shooter succeeded in taking the lives of three children and three adult staff.

More than a year has passed since the shooting and, finally, information about Hale and her mental health history is being made public, including information about the cocktail of prescription drugs Hale had been prescribed.

According to the June 12 Tennessee Star article, police confiscated from Hale’s parent’s home prescription bottles that bear Hale’s name and the name of a psychiatric nurse practitioner. There also was one medication apparently prescribed by a Nashville Psychiatrist, which makes sense given earlier reports that Hale had been a patient at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center for most of her life – twenty-two years to be exact – and had been under the care of both a therapist and psychiatrist.

So, what prescription psychiatric drugs had the shooter been taking prior to the murderous rampage?

Lexapro – a drug used to “treat” depression from the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) family of Drugs. Possible side effects include, abnormal thinking, aggravated depression, aggression/aggressive reaction, aggravated restlessness, depersonalization, feeling unreal, hallucination, hypomania, paranoia, suicidal ideation/behavior, mania, acute psychosis, anger, delusion, mood swings, psychotic disorder, to name a few. Not recommended used with Buspirone.

Buspirone – an anxiety medication in a class called Anxiolytics to “treat” anxiety disorders. Possible side effects include, insomnia, anger, hostility, confusion, depression, dream disturbances, depersonalization, akathisia, fearfulness, hallucinations, suicidal ideation to name a few.

Hydroxyzine – used as a sedative to “treat” anxiety and tension. Possible side effects include aggression, agitation, confusion, depression, disorientation, hallucination, and insomnia to name a few.

Gail Combs

NOW ADD TESTOSTERONE to that nasty cocktail.

Any bets the psychiatric nurse practitioner was unaware of the OTHER DRUGS prescribed?

RAC

Imagine it like a balance scale, how ill would one have to be before having all those side effects would weigh in as an improvement.

If it gets out how much of a wackjob she was, how would they use her rampage to push gun control instead of wackjob control?

Bannon and Navarro just got grounds for writs of habeas corpus!

Fox headline news on radio just had a blurb that said Garland would not be charged for defying a congressional subpoena in accordance with long standing DoJ policy against charging officials who claimed executive privilege.

This is a clear admission that those two were denied equal protection under the law, a facial violation of the 14th amendment.

I cannot imagine why DoJ would do this AND declare it publicly.

TheseTruths

Sounds good. Is the term “officials” a possible sticking point? (I hope not.) I don’t know how it is defined. Garland is a current official. Is it the case that the charges against both Navarro and Bannon are related to their duties as former officials? IMO it shouldn’t matter whether they are former vs. current officials. I’m looking forward to what their lawyers come up with.

Would love for this to happen…

  • House r-Cons still have a majority.
  • Need r-Cons to hold the line. (r-Cons won’t as they are cowards.)

Archaeologists Unearth 35 Glass Bottles from the 18th Century at George Washington’s Mount Vernon During Mansion Revitalization, Most Containing Perfectly Preserved Cherries and Berries

Excavation Represents an Unprecedented Discovery of Pre-Revolutionary War Artifacts and Biological Matter

Archaeologists at George Washington’s Mount Vernon have unearthed an astounding 35 glass bottles from the 18th century in five storage pits in the Mansion cellar of the nation’s first president. Of the 35 bottles, 29 are intact and contain perfectly preserved cherries and berries, likely gooseberries or currants. The contents of each bottle have been carefully extracted, are under refrigeration at Mount Vernon, and will undergo scientific analysis. The bottles are slowly drying in the Mount Vernon archaeology lab and will be sent off-site for conservation.

This discovery follows a recent find in the cellar of two intact European-manufactured 18th-century glass bottles containing liquid, cherries, and pits. These archaeological finds are part of the landmark privately funded $40 million Mansion Revitalization Project at George Washington’s Mount Vernon.

Photographs and video footage of the bottles’ discovery at Mount Vernon are available here and should be attributed to the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association (MVLA).

“Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine this spectacular archaeological discovery,” said Mount Vernon President & CEO Doug Bradburn. “We were ecstatic last month to uncover two fully intact 18th-century bottles containing biological matter. Now we know those bottles were just the beginning of this blockbuster discovery. To our knowlege, this is an unprecedented find and nothing of this scale and significance has ever been excavated in North America. We now possess a bounty of artifacts and matter to analyze that may provide a powerful glimpse into the origins of our nation, and we are crossing our fingers that the cherry pits discovered will be viable for future germination. It’s so appropriate that these bottles have been unearthed shortly before the 250th anniversary of the United States,” Bradburn said. 

“These artifacts likely haven’t seen the light of day since before the American Revolution, perhaps forgotten when George Washington departed Mount Vernon to take command of the Continental Army. This means the bottles are extremely fragile and require the utmost care…

While only a small quantity of the samples have been analyzed to date, the findings are significant even at this early stage:

• 54 cherry pits and 23 stems have been identified thus far, suggesting that the bottles were likely full of cherries before bottling. Cherry pulp is also present.

• Microscopy suggests that the cherries may have been harvested by snipping from trees with shears. The stems were neatly cut and purposefully left attached to the fruit before bottling.

• The cherries likely are of a tart variety, which has a more acidic composition that may have aided in preservation.

• The cherries are likely candidates for DNA extraction, which could be compared against a database of heirloom varieties to determine the precise species.

• The pits are undergoing an examination to determine if any are viable for germination.

This is all that remains after that cherry tree was chopped down.  😎

Good the cherries did not go to waste.   :wpds_razz:

I had the same thought. 😅

Any chance they would still be viable and would germinate if planted.

“The contents of each bottle have been carefully extracted, are under refrigeration at Mount Vernon, and will undergo scientific analysis.”

______________

So they preserved nothing in the original state, as it has been successfully preserved for the last 250 years?

Good job, DEI crew 👍 😂

TheseTruths

To preserve them as they had been, they would have had to leave the area they were found in exactly as it was. Either there were plans to renovate the area and that’s why they found the bottles in the first place, or they had already begun renovating the area — i.e., changing it from its original condition — so that the bottles would not have remained in their original condition.

scott467

What, they couldn’t have left a few jars unopened, the contents unexposed to the elements, still sealed inside the bottles and preserved in their original state?

Imagine if you found the Ark of the Covenant, and inside was Aaron’s staff, the jar of manna and two stone tablets with the Ten Commandments inscribed on them by the finger of God.

Do you pop the lid off the jar of manna and stick your grubby paw in there?

Or do you maybe preserve it intact, as an artifact?

Did they bother to dust the bottles for fingerprints?

I mean before they handled them, and got their own fingerprints all over them?

It would (have been) kinda cool to be able to lift a set of George’s fingerprints from the bottles.

Oh well, mebbe next time 😂

“These artifacts likely haven’t seen the light of day since before the American Revolution, perhaps forgotten when George Washington departed Mount Vernon to take command of the Continental Army.”

They were probably even the very last thing George Washington touched as he left Mount Vernon to take command of the Continental Army… that will go nicely on the placard at the exhibit.

Do they want tourists to show up and pay to see this stuff some day, or not? 😂

I don’t share your cynicism. It’s a historical find of significance to our country. And yes, I would pay to see the George Washington home, grounds, and bottles.

It’s not cynicism, it’s humor.

Besides, I was just trying to help their marketing team get with the program 👍😁

Dunno. I left my fingerprints in King Tutankhamun’s tomb. Where do I get cuffed?

Even then, likely only for inauguration day. Stay VA side. Won’t stay in MD or District of Criminals.

Just a lot of rhetoric. She said, “pResident Biden was out there literally representing America at the G7, saluting our troops, doing what he does as president of the United States.” She got that last part right: this is “literally” what he does as [fake] POTUS.

Anna Paulina Luna calls out the two obvious D-Rat read herring BS lines.

  • r-Cons have a war on women.
  • r-Cons can easily navigate The Big One, by following Trump’s lead. ABORTION.

IF D-Rats push Briben out, who will they choose?

  • Hoe won’t go quietly.
  • Grewsome?

Luna:

“…and right now with currently what’s coming out of the White House that, you know, a lot of people realize that Joe Biden is likely not going to be the nominee,” she continued. “Which is from what we’re hearing on Capitol Hill, [Republican California] Representative [Kevin] Kiley had reported that Kamala Harris [is] actually eyeing a run for California governor because of it.”

Newsom was elected in 2022 to a four-year term and vowed to serve all of it [snicker], so he’s not due to leave the governorship until 2026. I don’t know what the procedure is in California if the governor becomes a presidential candidate. So are we to believe that Kamala knows Newsom will replace JB on the Dem presidential ticket and is considering running to take his place as governor?

It’s all speculation at this point, but things are only going to get worse.

I can’t believe what I just read. “Because like silly schoolboys, the name reminds them of a woman’s rear.” You don’t EVER say something that people can use against you. Yes, some are already using that, but she just handed it to the world and said, “Here you go.” She really is dumb as a box of rocks. There were so many other things she could have said without saying that.
