DEAR MAGA: TGIF Open Thread 20240705

Boozy Root Beer Float

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce rum
  • 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
  • Root beer (such as A&W or Dad’s Root Beer), chilled, to top

Author’s note: NO NO NO, Sioux City Sassporilla

Steps

  1. Add the rum and ice cream into a tall glass.
  2. Slowly pour the root beer into the glass until it’s full, then stir gently and briefly to combine.

Author’s note: due to the nature of a national holiday, it was a slow news day. There are some links that were shared in yesterday’s daily. They are worth the time. Also, Sundance has good stuff of late OT. It’s worth a visit, IMO.

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out. There is also a “rescue” thread there for members of the Tree to rendezvous if the main site goes kablooey. A third site has been added for site outages of longer duration.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion. In that spirit, though, threats of violence real or hypothetical are out of bounds.

Fellow tree dweller the late Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

And Auntie DePat’s requests:

If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.

AMOS 8:4-6, 9-12

4Hear this, you who trample upon the needy, and bring the poor of the land to an end, 5saying, “When will the new moon be over, that we may sell grain? And the sabbath, that we may offer wheat for sale, that we may make the ephah small and the shekel great, and deal deceitfully with false balances, 6that we may buy the poor for silver and the needy for a pair of sandals, and sell the refuse of the wheat?” 9“And on that day,” says the Lord GOD, “I will make the sun go down at noon, and darken the earth in broad daylight. 10I will turn your feasts into mourning, and all your songs into lamentation; I will bring sackcloth upon all loins, and baldness on every head; I will make it like the mourning for an only son, and the end of it like a bitter day. 11“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord GOD, “when I will send a famine on the land; not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD. 12They shall wander from sea to sea, and from north to east; they shall run to and fro, to seek the word of the LORD, but they shall not find it.

I presume everybody is watching fireworks.

We’re waiting for it to get dark. Sunset was at 9:10 pm.

Our show is supposed to be on the 6th This year it is rumored to be a drone based show Last year’s fireworks was a disaster for the 1st time in 30 years thAt we’ve been watching Shows up near Gaylord, Michigan Normally From a base or barge over Otsego Lake and Run Out of the county park on the west side of the lake and supervised by the fire department. Last year The base or barge Collapsed or sank And no fireworks were shot This caused the county a loss of presumably 10s of thousands of dollars. Hopefully the weather will cooperate!

Good stuff, DPat 🤓 You and the animals got me laughing; thank you ….. I’ve never heard of a ‘bubble ring’. 🤷‍♀️

it’s been quiet up till tonight …. the booms are going off steadily and LOUDLY in all directions.

Aubergine

Quiet until last night here, too, which is very unusual. We have fireworks popping off for at least a week ahead of time. Last time it was like this was 2007-08.

Nobody has any money to spare, is my theory.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Good theory! We have some younger (and leftier) neighbors down the road – they normally set off a ton of fireworks on the night of the 4th. This time, very spaced out.

Aubergine

Sad to me.

Gail Combs

Same here.

We had a few from next door who has some pre-teen boys. but they were spaced out and ended very soon.

I am surrounded by 10+ related families and usually the 4th is a VERY BIG DEAL. Very quiet this year.

Alison

They only lasted here for a couple hours; quiet well before midnight. It definitely has to be price-related.

pgroup2

My next door neighbor and his brother both work for the Navy yard in Bremerton decommissioning subs and aircraft carriers. They are very well paid so our little corner of the world got its usual great show.

Their main beef of the evening was the high price of the fireworks. I heard “damn bidenomics” many times in between boombooms.  😡

On July 5, 1776, Congress made its first land acquisition when it purchased 96 acres of land south of Philadelphia to build a fort for the protection of the young nation’s capital city. After the July 4th Declaration of Independence, Congress immediately began to think about its own safety and that of its host city, knowing that it would be a likely British target.

The modern city of Paulsboro, New Jersey encompasses the land Congress purchased for the location of Fort Billingsport, which sat on the high ground at the narrowest point of the Delaware River south of Philadelphia. Construction of the fort was intended to block, or at least slow, a naval invasion up the river from the Delaware Bay.

Polish engineer Thaddeus Kosciuszko had arrived in America in June and volunteered his services to the Continental Army. Kosciuszko’s first assignment, given to him by George Washington, was to build Fort Billingsport. The fort consisted of a redoubt along the river adjacent to the larger fort. The defenses consisted of cannons trained over the river and chevaux-de-frise, which were long poles tipped with iron points to puncture the bottom of ships, placed in the river itself…

The site of Fort Billingsport was the first acquisition of land by the Continental Congress and has been called the “Birthplace of Homeland Security.” As the first federally owned installation of any kind, it has great historical significance.

https://www.revolutionary-war-and-beyond.com/congress-makes-its-first-land-acquisition.html

Whenever commerce became more important than naval defense, the chevaux -de-frise were removed. I wonder if any of them are in a museum somewhere.

July 5, 1776

[Printer John] Dunlap delivers his 200 copies of the Declaration (which are now called “Dunlap Broadsides”). One copy is officially entered into the Congressional Journal and the other copies are distributed throughout the colonies.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

I have a copy framed on a wall. I decided to go with that rather than a copy of the handwritten version for legibility, though I can’t get used to the “long s” (the one that looks like a lower case f). One could say that you can tell them apart because the long s has no crossbar, but it does actually have a partial crossbar on it..the part to the left of the vertical stroke is present.

The long s stopped being used just a couple of decades later.

Wikipoo:

The long s is often confused with the minuscule ⟨f⟩, sometimes even having an f-like nub at its middle but on the left side only in various romantypefaces and in blackletter. There was no nub in its italic type form, which gave the stroke a descender that curled to the left and which is not possible without kerning in the other type forms mentioned. For this reason, the short s was also normally used in combination with f: for example, in “ſatisfaction”.

After the debate, Wolf Moon mentioned Brandon’s eyes, and I agreed, saying they were black, like the whites of the eye were missing. In the CTH article below there is a link to a video interview of Harriet Hageman (R-WY), where she notices the same thing and comments on it.

Here is the article and video link posted by SD on CTH, followed by a transcript of Harriet Hageman’s comments about Brandon and his eyes:

.

Harriet Hagemen Eviscerates Joe Biden and the Pretending all Around Him
July 4, 2024

SD: “Harriet Hageman is on my personal short list of people I hope President Trump is considering for vice president.

During a recent interview Hageman shows she is not going along with the pretending. Every word about Joe Biden and the length of time the issues have been visible is correct and accurate. “Who is running our country?” WATCH:

.

Forbes interviewer (at about 17 second mark): “What did you think of his performance, first of all?”

Harriet Hageman: “It wasn’t surprising, and in fact I have been saying for well over a year that Joe Biden is suffering from severe dementia.

So what is surprising to me is the reaction of the press, who are now trying to act as though they didn’t know that this was the situation. And, and the reality is, is that there have been a lot of people who have been working uh overtime to try to cover up the fact that he is not cognitively all there.

All anybody has had to do is look at videos of him from a year ago, two years ago, 6 months ago, 10 years ago, 20 years ago. He is an entirely different person.

You can tell by his physical appearance, you can tell by his eyes. It appears to me that when he does go into public they have him on drugs, his eyes are severely dilated, they look very very strange, you see no color in them at all, they’re just these really serious black dots that that that you can tell by the look on his face, the way he holds his mouth, the way he walks.

So I wasn’t surprised that he was not capable of having a a coherent discussion last Thursday. What I’m surprised about is the number of people who act surprised, that they didn’t know that.”

I watched the non-debate, debate. I have read comments from many politicians and media since that point. I watched the Hageman interview.

What I am surprised about is that she states she is surprised by “the number of people who act surprised, that they did know that.”

She is still being or acting gaslit. They knew and are gaslighting. Probably less than 10% of the people in this country did not know. Even kids knew. Very few were actually surprised by what happened. They were more likely disappointed their “dear leaders” did not do a better job of juicing him up (if possible) or trotting out a well coached double or pulling another lawfare trick on PDT to cancel the debate or create a massive false flag that cancelled it. They believe the real people behind the scenes pulling the strings know what they are doing when running the country.

In their minds being “surprised” is plausible deniability, which in reality is implausible. Anybody doing that is guilty, complicit and looking for an exit from the absolute criminality of fronting and supporting a dementia patient as POTUS.

They are all a bunch of seditionists and losers.

pgroup2

So you’re the one that locks the pub door before proceeding to whupass all the jerks who were bullying the little guy.

Pleased to meet you.  😉 

TradeBait2

Pretty much spot on! 🤣

Aubergine

I think she is saying she is surprised by the number of people willing to act surprised, as if they were unaware. People who are not just being silent, but are actively “playing the game,” gaslighting the public. Maybe she’s naive, but I think she’s pointing out how duplicitous they are. That’s my take.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I think you’re right, and I’m actually surprised, too. I shouldn’t be – the Bible is clear on how few people love what is dear to the Lord, and how that number will diminish at times, and particularly “end times” (interpret as periodic, final, both).

I found it interesting how the Forbes journo tried to dismiss the drug angle, and how Hageman slickly responded, by “agreeing” with the host and then eviscerating her point. BRAVO!

I think she has something with the drug angle, and how it makes Biden look different. I believe it was why they pushed the “doubles” angle – as part of the “cover up by making the other side echo a foolish alternative” tactic.

And we know this – he’s been on hard dementia drugs since 2020. The Bernie Bro who revealed all he knew about inside drug rumors has only gotten more believable with time.

Aubergine

I think she’s right about the drug thing, too. It changes his eyes and his facial expressions.

scott467

Makes me wonder why they don’t give him human eye-colored contact lenses, to cover the vacant black (dilated) eyes from the drugs.

He looks like a demon otherwise. Unless maybe that’s the look they’re going for… 😂

Maybe a cardboard cutout of his better years face glued on a paint stirrer stick or go the hologram route or the Wizard of Oz set up with him behind the curtain alternately yelling and whispering.

Remember we had our stint before I purchased a new computer. I have never been a regular at this site since.

Wolf, I am still not a normal player. Is there a problem with those who are not?

cthulhu

I’ve got a weirdly complicated problem that had me frantically cleaning out my car today (during a heat wave).

While stripping things out of it, I found an old business card of mine from Communications Holdings, Inc. I normally leave this off of my resume. It’s a nice card — I designed it myself. The logo is a rounded corner black square with a white Greek letter Chi, next to Communications Holdings, Inc. written next to it so that the square borders on CHI. It has my name, but no job title — I thought it probable that different job titles might be advantageous at different times. Being the head honcho, I could appoint myself “Chief Technology Officer” or “Manager of International Trade” on the fly.

The phone number and fax number were valid. In fact, the corporation was actually valid and I was a corporate officer….as of about two weeks before the cards were printed. We had several “extra” corporations at the time, and just renamed one while appointing me chief bottle washer.

The purpose of this instant identity was to visit Taipei and Hong Kong, including some trade shows, and get a feel for fiberoptic video transmission opportunities in the region. If, for instance, I had found quality receiver nodes on the cheap (I didn’t — they were junk), I could have acquired samples and had our technical and legal teams arrange to import branded versions to flood the US market.

I did manage to catch our regional distributor badmouthing our product and pushing our competitor’s.

The joke was, of course, that the Greek letter Chi looks like an X. Years before Elon, I was traveling the far east passing myself off as representing an “X” corporation.

I have no idea how the card ended up sitting in my car for a couple of decades.

cthulhu

The company that I worked for started out in a weird niche. They were using cheap Fabry-Perot lasers to transmit video over fiber within loosely-regulated American cable television plants — which, at the time, had a couple of dozen channels.

Fabry-Perot lasers are noisy beasts that put out significant energy in wavelengths at intervals to the specified frequency. They excel at transmitting Morse Code, but suck at transmitting video. My company’s workaround was to modulate them with FM in wide bands, then combine 16 channels per fiber. At the remote sites, these 16 fiber channels would be remodulated as AM RF channels on coax.

This was, by the way, a non-standard use of the lasers, so we had to order bunches and send bunches that didn’t work back for someone else to use. When I started with this company, they had non-functional lasers stacked throughout the office areas, because the manufacturer’s rep “studly Dudley” wouldn’t provide RMA numbers to return the ones that wouldn’t work in our application. I brought on the Fiancee’s sister (they both grew up in New York) as a temp to return lasers. I knew I had made the right choice when I overheard her chewing on Dudley with “whaddaya mean you don’t know where your own factory is?”

cthulhu

If you think that’s funny, you should have heard the reaction when he called our owner to complain about the Fiancee’s sister being mean to him (the owner grew up in Binghamton).

If not, then it may be that some pop-up blocker are working on it.

It looks like it is coming from WordPress and not some outside source, so if it is pulling data from WordPress it is not funneling it to somewhere else.

That doesn’t mean it is good, nor does it mean you should help it.

Can’t they tell your zip code from when you pay them? I appreciate your sentiment but it’s probably similar to various medical providers that ask me questions to which I know the answers are in my med records right in front of them.

I asked if it’s a stealth cognitive quiz.

They laughed and said it’s a quickie type of security check. If you hesitate in giving them an answer that should be second nature, it causes concerns that you might be an imposter.

I see no reason that it couldn’t also be a stealth cognitive quiz.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

I don’t pay them – and one of the main reasons I don’t, is so that they can’t easily and legally get and then give my information (or that of my commenters) to the Democrats and FIB.

I use their free plugin. That is it. I don’t trust them even then, but I know that any spying they do on me is illegal or at least questionable (Brandon gave FIB broad spying powers without a warrant, but still – I want them to be worried about their spying on us.)

I am this || far from quitting the JetPack plugin.

scott467

“If you hesitate in giving them an answer that should be second nature, it causes concerns that you might be an imposter.”

____________

So who would be an impostor?

Who could it be.

They can’t profile for any of the obvious candidates, because that would be normal, effective and efficient. And we can’t have that.

Must be like giving Granny in a wheelchair a full cavity search at the airport, while letting Mustafa Mohamed Abdel-Rafsanjani walk right by, wearing a turban with a lit fuse sticking out of it.

Why do they even care?

As long as the imposter agrees to take the vaxx and get 20 boosters, they make their money impersonating doctors anyway, don’t they?

Trump drives into crowd holding barbecue in nyc park, 2 dead 9 injured.

Okay, CFP is a bit off on that head line. It’s a truck, but the truck drove into a park to strike all those folk…. not sure what’s up.

REAL STORY. (I think they got HACKED! Remember Wolfie said this site seemed to be under attack yesterday.)

Truck driver in Manhattan plows into barbecue crowd at park, leaves four critically wounded

Nine people enjoying a July 4 barbecue in a Lower Manhattan park were injured when the driver of a pickup truck rammed through a fence and mowed them down, leaving two dead, authorities said….

And this interesting bit came up:

CitizenFreePress’ News Site Suspended From Elon Musk’s Twitter For Sharing This Video Of Obama Admitting Democrats Exploit Voting Machines
[QUOTE]
CitizenFreePress, a heavily trafficked news aggregation site, was suspended from Twitter this week after sharing a video of former president Barack Obama campaigning in Ohio in 2008.
Obama is seen in the video telling a crowd in Philadelphia, Ohio boasting about Democrats controlling the election voting machines.

Barack Obama: “I tell you what, it helps in Ohio that we got Democrats in charge of the machines. But look, I come from Chicago so I want to be honest. It’s not as if it’s just Republicans who have monkeyed around with elections in the past, sometimes Democrats have too. Whenever people are in power they have this tendency to try to, you know, tilt things in their direction.”

I think everyone here likely remembers that quote since it was played often enough in the past, but alas not to enough people.

Twitter does not always seem of the same mind. I think Musk has had a problem getting rid of CIA/FED Moles? Secret road blocks and hurdles he’s not allowed to speak about. Parts of the company he’s not allowed to touch and such.

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

YES. Elon is distracted, and Yacarino-Hitler is barely in charge. The FIB an CIA plants are in control, IMO, and now that the Bidenoids have the blessing of SCOFFLAW SCOTUS, censorship is resuming, based on the assumption by the censors that government authorities are authoritative.

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.

This is seriously the most desperate take of them all on Biden:

“The Huffington Post is calling on Joe Biden’s re-election campaign to utilize artificial intelligence (AI) “deepfakes” to minimize his age and verbal stumbles. “Joe Biden is old and has had a lifelong stutter… AI augmentations and video renderings could serve to smooth out these bumps while allowing the Biden campaign to effectively disseminate true information about the state of our democracy and the Biden administration’s accomplishments,” argues Kaivan Shroff, a Hillary Clinton campaign veteran, in the article titled ‘It’s Time for the Biden Campaign to Embrace AI.’

The opinion piece details how AI technology could create videos incorporating parts of authentic recordings but free of the 81-year-old incumbent’s usual gaffes. Shroff suggests that the Biden campaign could use AI to “polish how the president comes across, allowing voters to focus on his substance.””

From the same paragraph:

• “effectively disseminate true information”

These people are sick.

What amazes me is, we aren’t supposed to notice.

“our democracy” is some kind of cult term used by the lunatic Left at every opportunity.

Whenever the Left uses the term ‘our democracy’, what they mean is ‘our tyranny’.

They would never ever say “our Republic”.

PRECIOUS IN HIS SIGHT

You awaken in the morning – Praise God
You put the coffee on to perk – Thank God
You wash your face and brush your teeth
Make breakfast pet the cat down beneath

You are Precious in His Sight

You have food – You are blessed
Bacon sausage eggs the best
Pancakes syrup and sweets galore
Hash browns and fruit and so much more

You are Precious in His Sight

A nice hot shower or warm bath
Fresh clean clothes you do hath
A prayer here and a prayer there
Oh, give Him praise everywhere

You are Precious in His Sight

Wonder if prayers are responded
If something is mis corresponded
Maybe the answer is just hold on
Or not good for you now or beyond

You are Precious in His Sight

Sometimes it is hard to trust the unseen
So on your own understanding you lean 
Just acknowledge Him in all of your ways
To Him give all Honor Glory and Praise

Because…You are Precious in His Sight

Thank you for your poem today, and for the wonderful inspiring things you bring to the board every day.
The Japanese have a word for taking positive notice or delight in “the small things” — Ikigai.
It was at one time thought that this concept applied only to “people of a certain age” to help them live in peace for the rest of their time on this planet. It has since then been “expanded” to include younger people, to help them relieve or reduce stress in their lives.
To Yours Truly, this is a “secular” expression of Psalm 118:24.

Sending much Good Energy to you!

Again, Steve Kirsch brings the truth:

(Just an aside: take a look at Mr. Kirsch’s face in this video clip. He himself got “fully vaccinated”, then after that he started searching for the truth about the COVID-19 “vaccines.” Based on one’s reading his blog for some time now, IMO, it appears that he may be “looking older than his years”?)

Wolf Moon | Threat to Demonocracy

Yup. That vax ages people. Could be many mechanisms, or all of them, but it does.

“Yup. That vax ages people.”

If there is something that clearly prematurely ages a person, then there ought to likewise be something that clearly and obviously slows the aging process.

If certain things can dramatically speed up aging, there should also be things which dramatically slow it down.

Another retailer about to go under.

Big Lots ie, Pic n Save.

I was just thinking 2 days ago that it would not be a surprise if they go under too. I havent shopped there in a decade, and even then it had changed to try to be something like walmart instead.

Looking like theyll file bankruptcy. I dont think Dollar Tree will buy them like 99cent stores. Our 99 cent store was right next to big lots, so same customers.

“A nationwide discount homeware chain with almost 1,400 stores is the latest to warn of money problems.Big Lots has told financial regulators it may not be able to continue as a ‘going concern’ – raising the risk of store closures and bankruptcy.The Columbus, Ohio-based chain has seen its takings fall consistently for each of the past ten quarters. And it lost an eye-watering $132milloin in the first three months of 2024.Managers of its stores say they are not surprised.  They have complained that the company’s bosses at HQ send truck-loads of products that customers don’t want.In a recent filing with regulators, Big Lots said that the losses so far this year – on top of further losses in 2022 and 2023 – meant it had used up most of its spare cash. Retailers need money in the bank to cover the cost of stock.”

Got that right. Yours Truly used to buy “dry goods”, and things like non-skid bath rugs from Big Lots. These closings are going to force shoppers to go to places like Target, where even a “cheap” bath rug costs 2x – 3x what a similar item would be at Big Lots.

I was saying to Hubby, I would not be surprised to find the head buyer is actually in the pay of Walmart or Target.

Ours is right next to the empty 99 cent store. Never see anyone there.

Noticed a pronounced change in merchandise emphasis and brand image a few years ago. Prices rose above discounter levels. There was a greater emphasis on home goods like furniture, bedding and furnishings with much more floor space assigned.

Just another example of a business whose leadership totally lost sight of who they were and why they were successful. Know your customers. If you are successful, do not move away from who made you successful unless there is an obvious void to fill that is more profitable.

mollypitcher5

I remember it first as MacFrugals. It had closeouts and discontinued items. Some were name brand and others were one offs maybe. It was a true bargain store. Then like you said it changed.

Gail Combs

SPAGS in MA. 30 years ago. I LOVED that store! I still have stuff I bought there!

He had a really great business plan.

CASH ONLY – that meant no credit card fees for him and he could offer suppliers PAYING NOW instead of 3 months from now.

WAREHOUSE STYLE – goods were still in the box they came in and the store was a warehouse.

GOODS STORED IN TRAILERS – In MA you are taxed on the goods in a warehouse at years end. Also the goods got moved ONCE and the ‘warehouse’ was a much cheaper parking lot. This also cut property taxes to the bone.

….

Then he died the kids took over and hired a HAAAAaavard Business School grad. In came the credit cards, in came spiffing the place up, in came MORE LABOR COSTS and HIGHER TAXES and no cash basis…. SO they went under within a few years.

We call it being HAAAAaavard Business Schooled’. One place I worked had the same crap happen to them.

mollypitcher5

There’s a store in Memphis that I loved called Bargain Hunt. It was full of name brand lamps, area rugs, outdoor things, clothing..you name it and if you hesitated buying something it would probably be gone before you pulled the trigger.
They must’ve bought pallets of past season items from higher end stores. It was fun and cheap.
Wonder if it’s changed over to the cheaper stuff by now.

4/24/2022 Kanekoa the Great – Exposing America’s Ballot Trafficking Cartel

In @KanekoaTheGreat’s latest Substack, he writes that the Director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Vic Reynolds, ignored the evidence that will be presented in “2000 Mules.”

The information gathered from the 2000 Mules trailers alone warrants an investigation. Yet, Director Reynolds states a potential investigation is “not justified.” There was not “any other kind of evidence that ties these cell phones to ballot harvesting.”

Educate yourself to fight like hell against those stating that “this was the most secure election in history. Kanekoa lays it out neatly in various parts:

Part I — Push To Vote By Mail

Part II — Ballot Laundering Cartel

Part III — Voting System Vulnerabilities 

Part IV — True The Vote Findings + Obstacles

AND the above leads to this — Black Republican from the AZ-GOP, who has an important message (9 min first view minutes get the message across.)

Ground report:
Yours Truly spoke on the phone with a “fully vaccinated and boosted” medical professional family member. They were going to spend the weekend with an aunt by marriage and her husband, both in advanced stages of cancer. The medical professional family member believes that either one, or both, won’t be around next year.
Both of the sick people are also “fully vaccinated and boosted.” Both came down with COVID-19 last Thanksgiving after getting the “booster.” Both were diagnosed with their cancers at Christmas of last year.
The aunt (previous breast cancer years ago, in remission before “vaccination”) now has advanced pancreatic cancer. On chemo and radiation.
Her husband (no previous cancer before “vaccination”) now has advanced prostate cancer. On chemo and radiation.
Here’s the kicker, IMO — the “vaccinated” medical professional family member apparently is attributing these illnesses as “what happens when you get older”, to “cancer can come back”, and to “family history.”
Yes, there are cases of “family history” (which would argue for a genetic predisposition for certain illnesses or conditions) that may be in play here.
And it is true that cases of cancer can “come out of the blue”, as it were, that may be in play here.
BUT — the COVID-19 “vaccines” can, and do, induce new cancers (including turbo-cancers) in “vaccinated” persons; as well as “re-establishing” cancer in “vaccinated” persons.
Why?
Because the COVID-19 “vaccines” suppress the crucial cancer tumor suppressor gene p53 in the “vaccinated” person’s body.
This is IN ADDITION to the fact that the COVID-19 “vaccines” also damage and/or destroy the “are you a friend or foe” CD4 – CD8 immune system cells, AND the IgG3 “fight it off” immune system cells, in the “vaccinated” person’s body, while increasing the IgG4 “tolerate but never clear” cells in the “vaccinated” person’s body.
The “vaccinated” medical professional family member also noted that there are people dying in their 50s and 60s — but attributed it to “bad diet, bad lifestyle, family history, parents start dying off at these ages.”
Yes, bad diet / bad lifestyle / family medical predispositions that are “kicked off” at some point, can all be in play in this scenario.
BUT — what’s this “parents start dying off” in their 50s and 60s”?
IMO, this conversation is an example of just how clueless / “head in the sand” / ignore the reality about the COVID-19 “vaccines” that’s coming to light / know the reality but won’t say anything due to fear of losing their jobs / “the so-called ‘truth’ about the COVID-19 “vaccines” is more conspiracy theory” mindsets that seem to be those of “vaccinated” medical professionals.

I am sorry PAVACA. Knowing what you do it must be agonizing to listen to the delusions coming from loved ones.

This is not directed at your relatives in particular – just more of a general thought – but I’m thinking Darwin Awards are currently being handed out.

Members of my family are receiving them as their health implodes. It’s very hard to watch. Everyone except myself and my children are boosted up and all are falling apart. They accept the failing of their previously healthy bodies as part of the aging process.

When one of them comes down with Covid again, they say oh good thing he/she got the booster or it would be so much worse.

Thank you. The “it could have been worse” was the opinion of one of the “fully vaccinated and boosted” family members who got COVID for the third time last Christmas.

Linda

I’m so sorry, Pavaca. I can imagine how frustrated you are that no one seems to listen. Most of my family are also vaccinated and wouldn’t listen to me tell them about the dangers of the shots. I guess they think I’m just a nutty conspiracy theorist.

Just want to mention that there are a number of gene mutations that predispose some people to be more apt to get certain cancers. My doctor had a list of about 20 of those markers that she had me tested for, since a lot of people in my family have had different cancers. I did have one that made me slightly more apt to get breast cancer, colon cancer, and several reproductive cancers. However, all of them are just a small increase over the average. That may or may not be why I got breast cancer.

I totally agree that all the turbo cancers we’re seeing – and there are a lot of them in my cancer group, especially among young people – are the result of the jabs. What I’m wondering, though, is whether COVID itself could also be causing an increase in cancers. Have you seen any research to that effect?

Educated rationalizers of their perception of truth. I feel your frustration and share it.

I am teaching my young grandson through his online homeschool curriculum to think things through himself. I am giving him the tools to do his own analysis of everything important to him. So many people have been conditioned by self appointed experts and corrupt leaders to trust the wrong people and things to the point of becoming sheeple.

Just like the other set of his grandparents who are fully jabbed, in declining health, and aging rapidly while being about 10 years younger than us as they trust the experts.

“…refusal to recognize and submit to…” <<< WTF is this some witches brew ritual?

“Supreme Pontiff”. <<< More like a pompous asshole AND communist.

Lucky for him that the Inquisition days are history. Not submitting was lethal.

The Inquisition was a powerful office set up within the Catholic Church to root out and punish heresy throughout Europe and the Americas.

Yes, the Catholic Church can be like that. “Rome is infallible, or she is nothing.”
An “oblique cousin” of mine (the son of an uncle-by-marriage), who was a Catholic priest, had had enough of the church’s teachings on gay persons. He decided to start an “ecumenical Catholic” parish using his own money about 25 years ago. This splinter church thrived for years, serving Catholics who were gay, or were divorced, etc. During this time, however, the Diocese of Pittsburgh petitioned the Vatican to, first, “discipline” him, then, second, to have him excommunicated since he refused to “repent” and submit to the Pope’s demand to disband the “renegade parish.”
My “oblique cousin” apparently took to drink and died several years ago from liver failure. I don’t know if his “renegade parish” is still extant.

Mount Etna puffs ‘smoke rings’ in rare display

Italy’s Mount Etna has been putting on a show by blowing near-perfect circles into the Sicilian sky.

A new crater opened on the summit of Europe’s largest active volcano leading to an unusual display of the so-called ‘smoke rings’.

The rings are made of gases and propelled by a circular vent in the volcano.

And, every time I hear about one of the worldwide volcanoes erupting, I think “suck on that you climate change hoaxers”. You will NEVER harness or control the power, impacts or randomness of nature’s wonders like the sun, volcanoes or tectonic shifts.

Effect of cooling of cooked white rice on resistant starch content and glycemic response

Abstract 

Cooling of cooked starch is known to cause starch retrogradation which increases resistant starch content. This study aimed to determine the effect of cooling of cooked white rice on resistant starch content and glycemic response in healthy subjects. Resistant starch contents were analyzed on freshly cooked white rice (control rice), cooked white rice cooled for 10 hours at room temperature (test rice I), and cooked white rice cooled for 24 hours at 4°C then reheated (test rice II). The results showed that resistant starch contents in control rice, test rice I, and test rice II were 0.64 g/100 g, 1.30 g/100 g, and 1.65 g/100 g, respectively. Test rice II had higher resistant starch content than test rice I, hence used in the clinical study along with control rice to characterize glycemic response in 15 healthy adults. The clinical study was a randomized, single-blind crossover study. In the clinical study, test rice II significantly lowered glycemic response compared with control rice (125±50.1 vs 152±48.3 mmol.min/L, respectively; p=0.047). 👉In conclusion, cooling of cooked white rice increased resistant starch content. Cooked white rice cooled for 24 hours at 4°C [39°F] then reheated lowered glycemic response compared with freshly cooked white rice.

Unfortunately this is no longer available on the net. It is a comment I copied.

leaky gut & rice

I’m afraid you’ve got it wrong with respect to resistant starch and SIBO. It’s not as simple as “giving bacteria food to ferment”-

  :wpds_arrow: first of all, resistant starch selectively feeds beneficial bacteria in the gut, and the fermentation process does not happen until the starch reaches the colon. Since the RS is not used as an energy source by bacteria in the small intestine, it does not contribute to SIBO (standing for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). Not only does it not feed the bacteria in the small intestine, but many strains of pathogenic and all tested strains of beneficial bacteria that I have seen have shown to adhere to the starch, thus carrying them out of the small intestine and into the large intestine where they can be excreted in feces.

So it reduces levels of pathogens, is selectively used by beneficial bacteria, reduces levels of bacteria in the small intestine, increases butyrate production, and restores the integrity of tight junctions (if leaky gut develops from your SIBO, which is likely). Additionally, the SCFA (short-chain fatty acids) produced by RS digestion increases the frequency of peristaltic contractions of the ileum, which would again probably aid in the expulsion of bacteria from the small intestine. For some reason, it seems that everybody “knows” that RS is bad for SIBO, and yet I have yet to find a single scrap of information to support this clam, and plenty to think that such a claim might not be true at all. Notice that all the sites

that http://www.siboinfo.com/diet.html uses as references simply advocate a FODMAPS diet, which actually does not contraindicate starches at all!

Again, to recap: RS removes bacteria from the small intestine and selectively feeds beneficial bacteria which results in butyrate production and proper function of tight junctions (thus relief from leaky gut).

I got most of these studies from Tim Steele and some from Dr. BG over at http://drbganimalpharm.blogspot.com/. Check out their stuff to learn way more information than you will ever need to know about SIBO and resistant starch. They also give some awesome dietary recommendations that got rid of my SIBO problems in less than a week (after an unsuccessful VLC intervention for over 2 months)

There is another related article that disappeared. In 3rd world countries where cholera is a major problem it was found that rice water — a little rice in lots of water to make a solution — REMOVED THE BACTERIA as well as aiding in rehydration.

That is something to remember for a SHIF scenario.

THANK YOU !!!

That’s pretty cool.

Couple decades ago, all I saw out of Mt Etna was, I guess we’d call it steam… No lava or noticeable rumbles / shakes.

Still a sight.

Another cool sight.

Walking around Naples. Steam vents. Many or most sulfur smell. Yellowish residue around vents.

Guess folks are content with the constant venting. Another guess, venting stops, what may be next if pressure builds too much.

Interesting about steam vents in Naples; I’ve not heard that mentioned before for that location.

Went looking at YT & Internet in general for Naples steam vents. Struck out.

The vents I saw walking around Naples quite small, not fenced off or anything like that. But obviously steaming and yellowish residue with sulfur stench when up close.

Kilauea in Volcanoes National Park, Big Island Hawaii steam vents common. Seemingly everywhere.

Hiked across a Caldera, lots of steam vents.

Fresh lava fields near the ocean. Walked on the cooling lava. Hot as hell when I ventured to far… Rangers keep moving orange cones, in an attempt to keep goofs like myself from really screwing up.

Walked up to a red bubbling lava whatever. Pushed an empty water bottle on it slightly. Bottle gone in seconds. Yea, I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed.

Yellowstone has numerous vents and IIRC, bubbling pools. No doubt water in those pools would kill the foolish tourist.

Enough blathering for now. Really wanted to find a YT video with vents in Naples. Oh well.

There is the BBC video but all it shows is the steam.

And then there is the Dail Mail video. I think it is more what you are looking for since it is on the ground:

Seen them at Yellowstone & on Big Island Hawaii … didn’t lose my water bottle 😅

Alison

Thanks RAC 👍

I usually mute the annoying music on videos, but in this case it seems to fit !
