Corrupt to the core.

Tax cheats, white collar criminals, and crack addicts.
That sounds like the entire DNCCP; however, I would add perverts and pedophiles to the description.
Mild PCM warning.
Too much inbreeding?
Some of the craziest and corrupt Senators come from really small states; the left is now trying to flood the red small population states with illegals in an attempt to flip them blue.
I used to live in a small town years ago.
It wasn’t the worst experience I ever had. But, I don’t think I would care to ever repeat it. There is a lot of downside to living in Small Town America.
But I was able to see how it is as corrupt as any major blue city. Very, very cliquish.
The only thing I can say about Small Town America with regards to illegals is, especially in certain places, they better keep their heads down and behave, because the good old boys will definitely teach them some manners. LOL
So the illegals going to red states will certainly be sticking to the cities.
Technically, I live outside of a small town, but it is really a suburb of a 250,000 population town; we have gotten A LOT of illegals over the last few years.
There is a town of around 12,000 near us that has 51 FIFTY-ONE spoken in their school district, which means they have a minimum of 51 translators to pay.
The illegals are everywhere, large and small alike.
Where I live in a town of about 1,000 people and the nearest city has 7,500 people. We are too poor to attract any illegal invaders
I live outside of Republic Missouri , a town with a population of around 19,000, but it has a big AMAZON distribution center and Springfield Mo is around five miles away.
Due to recent demographic shifts, Springfield is in the top ten of cities for violent crimes PER CAPITA, with multiple Universities and colleges, there is a leftist leaning .
You can readily ascertain that from Jill’s wardrobe (if one can even call it that.)
I noticed that.
I also noticed what you didn’t say.
Sometimes that speaks the loudest.
Indeed, and as I suspected.
It’s part of a hubcap?
When Hell freezes over, will I EVER eat bugs.
(First rant of the day.)
I have noticed that vegans feel sorry for animals but not plants and bugs. They pick and chose to fit their beliefs.
Or the unborn and recently born.
Good afternoon George.
You are correct.
They decide who deserves their “compassion”, and indeed choose their own beliefs
Very well stated and 🎯🎯🎯🎯🎯🎯!!!
I don’t even care that they have their beleifs until they try to impose their beliefs on others as is now happening with claims in climate change.
The leftist loons will follow any stupid idea, while the leftist “elites” dine on the best cuts of steak.
Absolutely, that’s Marxism 101.
“Rules are for thee, but not for me.”
I can think of a few globalist and marxists that I would love to watch take the plunge.
Good morning Sapper9!
Good morning Diaspora!
Good Morning Mom.
Joe Biden said : “I take classified documents seriously”, or was it ” I take classified documents, seriously”, like his “no joke ” line.
The left made a big deal out of PRESIDENT Trump, who had declassification authority, but, now he is sandwiched between the Clinton and Biden scandals. lol
Why would a senior attorney for the White House be looking in closets for paperwork? Don’t they have paralegals for that type of work? What was the real reason they were moving documents?
Biden suggested that CAR INSURANCE IS RACIST, perhaps if the blacks would stop stealing cars from each other their premiums would be cheaper.
Have a theft proof vehicle – a stick shift
Democrats still comparing themselves with trump. They will never ever let it go.
TaliBiden said hold his ice cream when he was told that Trump legally had declassified documents
I can almost see this happening.

This phenomenal article gives tremendous insight regarding the phenomena of the Jewish People.
The lessons are timeless and beautiful.
Turning Curses into Blessings
By Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks ZTL
Genesis ends on an almost serene note. Jacob has found his long lost son. The family has been reunited. Joseph has forgiven his brothers. Under his protection and influence the family has settled in Goshen, one of the most prosperous regions of Egypt. They now have homes, property, food, the protection of Joseph and the favour of Pharaoh. It must have seemed one of the golden moments of Abraham’s family’s history.
Then, as has happened so often since, “There arose a new Pharaoh who did not know Joseph.” There was a political climate change. The family fell out of favour. Pharaoh told his advisers: “Look, the Israelite people are becoming too numerous and strong for us” – the first time the word “people” is used in the Torah with reference to the children of Israel. “Let us deal shrewdly with them, so that they may not increase.” And so the whole mechanism of oppression moves into operation: forced labour that turns into slavery that becomes attempted genocide.
The story is engraved in our memory. We tell it every year, and in summary-form in our prayers, every day. It is part of what it is to be a Jew. Yet there is one phrase that shines out from the narrative: “But the more they were oppressed, the more they increased and the more they spread.” That, no less than oppression itself, is part of what it means to be a Jew.
The worse things get, the stronger we become. Jews are the people who not only survive but thrive in adversity.
Jewish history is not merely a story of Jews enduring catastrophes that might have spelled the end to less tenacious groups. It is that after every disaster, Jews renewed themselves. They discovered some hitherto hidden reservoir of spirit that fuelled new forms of collective self-expression as the carriers of God’s message to the world.
Every tragedy begat new creativity. After the division of the kingdom following the death of Solomon came the great literary prophets, Amos and Hosea, Isaiah and Jeremiah. Out of the destruction of the First Temple and the Babylonian exile came the renewal of Torah in the life of the nation, beginning with Ezekiel and culminating in the vast educational programme brought back to Israel by Ezra and Nehemiah. From the destruction of the Second Temple came the immense literature of rabbinic Judaism, until then preserved mostly in the form of an oral tradition: Mishnah, Midrash and Gemara.
From the Crusades came the Hassidei Ashkenaz, the North European school of piety and spirituality. Following the Spanish expulsion came the mystic circle of Tzefat: Lurianic Kabbalah and all it inspired by way of poetry and prayer. From East European persecution and poverty came the Hassidic movement and its revival of grass-roots Judaism through a seemingly endless flow of story and song. And from the worst tragedy of all in human terms, the Holocaust, came the rebirth of the state of Israel, the greatest collective Jewish affirmation of life in more than two thousand years.
It is well known that the Chinese ideogram for “crisis” also means “opportunity”. Any civilisation that can see the blessing within the curse, the fragment of light within the heart of darkness, has within it the capacity to endure. Hebrew goes one better. The word for crisis, mashber, also means “a child-birth chair.” Written into the semantics of Jewish consciousness is the idea that the pain of hard times is a collective form of the contractions of a woman giving birth. Something new is being born. That is the mindset of a people of whom it can be said that “the more they were oppressed, the more they increased and the more they spread.”
Where did it come from, this Jewish ability to turn weakness into strength, adversity into advantage, darkness into light? It goes back to the moment in which our people received its name, Israel. It was then, as Jacob wrestled alone at night with an angel, that as dawn broke his adversary begged him to let him go. “I will not let you go until you bless me”, said Jacob. (Bereishit 32:27) That is the source of our peculiar, distinctive obstinacy. We may have fought all night. We may be tired and on the brink of exhaustion. We may find ourselves limping, as did Jacob. Yet we will not let our adversary go until we have extracted a blessing from the encounter. This turned out to be not a minor and temporary concession. It became the basis of his new name and our identity. Israel, the people who “wrestled with God and man and prevailed”, is the nation that grows stronger with each conflict and catastrophe.
I was reminded of this unusual national characteristic by an article that appeared in the British press in October 2015. Israel at the time was suffering from a wave of terrorist attacks that saw Palestinians murdering innocent civilians in streets and bus stations throughout the country. It began with these words: “Israel is an astonishing country, buzzing with energy and confidence, a magnet for talent and investment – a cauldron of innovation.” It spoke of its world-class excellence in aerospace, clean-tech, irrigation systems, software, cyber-security, pharmaceuticals and defence systems. 
“All this”, the writer went on to say, “derives from brainpower, for Israel has no natural resources and is surrounded by hostile neighbours.” The country is living proof of “the power of technical education, immigration and the benefits of the right sort of military service.” Yet this cannot be all, since Jews have consistently overachieved, wherever they were and whenever they were given the chance. He goes through the various suggested explanations: the strength of Jewish families, their passion for education, a desire for self-employment, risk-taking as a way of life, and even ancient history. The Levant was home to the world’s first agricultural societies and earliest traders. Perhaps, then, the disposition to enterprise was written, thousands of years ago, into Jewish DNA. Ultimately, though, he concludes that it has to do with “culture and communities”.
A key element of that culture has to do with the Jewish response to crisis. To every adverse circumstance, those who have inherited Jacob’s sensibilities insist: “I will not let you go until you bless me.” (Bereishit 32:27) That is how Jews, encountering the Negev, found ways of making the desert bloom. Seeing a barren, neglected landscape elsewhere, they planted trees and forests. Faced with hostile armies on all their borders, they developed military technologies they then turned to peaceful use. War and terror forced them to develop medical expertise and world-leading skills in dealing with the aftermath of trauma. They found ways of turning every curse into a blessing. The historian Paul Johnson, as always, put it eloquently:
Over 4,000 years the Jews proved themselves not only great survivors but extraordinarily skilful in adapting to the societies among which fate had thrust them, and in gathering whatever human comforts they had to offer. No people has been more fertile in enriching poverty or humanising wealth, or in turning misfortune to creative account.
There is something profoundly spiritual as well as robustly practical about this ability to transform the bad moments of life into a spur to creativity. It is as if, deep within us were a voice saying, “You are in this situation, bad though it is, because there is a task to perform, a skill to acquire, a strength to develop, a lesson to learn, an evil to redeem, a shard of light to be rescued, a blessing to be uncovered, for I have chosen you to give testimony to humankind that out of suffering can come great blessings if you wrestle with it for long enough and with unshakeable faith.”
In an age in which people of violence are committing acts of brutality in the name of the God of compassion, the people of Israel are proving daily that this is not the way of the God of Abraham, the God of life and the sanctity of life. And whenever we who are a part of that people lose heart, and wonder when it will ever end, we should recall the words: “The more they were oppressed, the more they increased and the more they spread.” A people of whom that can be said can be injured, but can never be defeated. God’s way is the way of life.
 Ex. 1:9. This is the first intimation in history of what in modern times took the form of the Russian forgery, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. In the Diaspora, Jews – powerless – were often seen as all-powerful. What this usually means, when translated, is: How is it that Jews manage to evade the pariah status we have assigned to them?

Funny how the pharaohs sound exactly like Klaus Schwab, and the rest of the globalist scum. It’s not enough they want us to die, but to slowly die a death of a thousand cuts. One of them is making sure our lives are as lonely and as fruitless as possible.
To extrapolate further, crisis is also defined as a “dangerous opportunity.”
Gee… I wonder who THIS might have been a reference too? Hmmm?
Seriously, it perfectly surmises the evil behind the notion of “for the greater good” and collective sacrifice.
I KNEW that you would appreciate this article.
I LOVE IT.
It was a real hit on my sister’s chat.
As King Solomon wrote in Koheles (Ecclesiastes), 1:9 “…and there is nothing at all new under the sun!”
FYI, Hashem created Jew with a stubborn streak (we’re a “stiff knecked people”). It’s not always a compliment from Hashem (when we’re doing the wrong things).
Every trait can be used for good or evil. Hashem gave us the stubbornness, tenacity, and wisdom that we needed to survive. How else could we have otherwise held on?!
Part of the daily morning blessings is thanking Hashem for girding us with strength.
Of course, we have a guarantee from Hashem that we’ll be the eternal Chosen People.
That is tremendous.
We’ll not only outlive our oppressors, but we’ll get to see Hashem mete out His retribution in the most magnificent manner imaginable.
(I’ll be cheering on the sidelines.)
Since I am not Jewish, what’s my excuse? LOL.
It is definitely a survival mechanism for sure. I think this is probably why I enjoyed watching Pump Up The Volume so much the other night. My brother was right in some ways about me being like the character Slater played in that movie; Angsty, hard-headed, sarcastic, and even a bit obnoxious.
In a strange way, it’s those of us like myself, who are these “counter culture” types, that keep rocking the boat, which keeps evil at bay in spite of our less than holy demeanor and attributes.
Hashem gave you the tools that you need to survive your life.
That’s my response.
Judaism teaches that.
Apologies for the delayed response.
I had a wonderful supper with my husband. 🥰🥰🥰
I don’t always know what time he is going to eat supper.
It depends on his work schedule.
When I am able to join him, I love doing so.
It’s very important that you get to do that.
I think I am becoming more liquid diet oriented these days. Sometimes I only eat one meal per day. My appetite is usually so-so more often than not.
I agree entirely.
It’s like a date.
(Of course, going out is a whole different level. That being said, one can make it happen at home as well.)
Are you getting enough vitamins?
Your body might be rebelling from malnourishment.
It’s very complex.
I am not the expert that @nicetomeetyou2:disqus is.
That being said, I do know the ramifications of not getting proper nourishment personally.
It will also cause nausea to come on.
FYI, it’s a federal law that hospitals cannot destroy your credit rating.
Someone needs to tel that to my local hospital. I got in a big fight with them a few years back when I had a toothache that wouldn’t stop. I ended up needing a root canal. But I was charged over $1,000 for facility use when all they did was give me a Norco for the pain after making me wait for nearly 2 hours.
They threatened to make a “derogatory” remark on my credit report, after I told their collections department to shove it because I thought what they were charging me was obscene. A visit to a private practice only cost me one tenth that, to which I was given a pain killer, and prescribed an 800 Milligram Ibuprofen, and Amoxicillin.
Are they still hounding you?
There is a Statute of Limitations issue as well.
How many years ago was it?
This was back in 2017, and I never heard form them again after I wrote their administrator a very nasty letter about their criminal billing practices. And I used the word “criminal” in my letter more than once.
IIRC, The Statute of Limitations is three years.
I’m so very grateful that you did that.
GOOD. FOR. YOU.
When I fractured my ribs, my now 25 year old got an X-ray from the hospital closest to the Lincoln Tunnel (in Hoboken).
They billed $20,000.00 for the X-ray.
It was just a freaking X-ray.
I gave the collection agency Hell.
They left us alone for a few months and started up again.
A judge would laugh them out of Court and/or give them Hell.
I almost forgot about this until you mentioned your experience.
This is criminal as well.
These people deserve to be incarcerated.
The number one reason to own a firearm – the government.

EXACTLY. It’s The Bill of Rights, not The Bill of Feelings.
1. I want one.

Meghan has announced that Harry has of his own free will decided to transition to a princess.
In all seriousness, it is obvious who wears the pants in that house, and it isn’t Harry. He “transitioned” the moment he hooked up with that harpy.
How are you doing?
Not bad. For some reason my body has been feeling a little stiff. I know I am not getting any younger, but I hate feeling like I am aging rapidly.
I’m very sorry to hear that.
Are there specific areas that are stiff?
Legs, back and neck, mainly.
Have you ever seen a physical therapist?
It really makes a huge difference.
I’m cognizant that you are currently unemployed. 😔😔😔
Do you have health insurance whatsoever that would cover it?
Zero. If I ever need any serious medical care, I am going to have to do the unthinkable and do myself in.
It may be an unforgivable sin, but far better than leaving anyone in my family the burden of helping me pay medical bills, not so much for my care, but so illegal immigrants can get it for free.
DON’T YOU EVEN EVER THINK ABOUT IT.
I just hope that I am never in that position. God forbid.
It’s sad I live in a free country, but like those who don’t, I have to practice self-care because our medical system is so corrupt and evil.
I had a friend in college from Russia, and she always had an extra suitcase that was filled with medical supplies, because, as she told me, doctors can’t be trusted, and the system is pretty bad.
You’re far too valuable to lose.
You know how to reach me immediately.
I pray that you are never in the position to even begin to think that way.
I have a huge stash of emergency medications as well.
My parents do too.
They have a mini pharmacy.
The government became insane about regulating medications that shouldn’t be regulated.
WHY the HECK should Neurontin (Gabapentin) be regulated?!?!
That’s but one example.
I once said if I identified as an illegal alien, I would receive all of the “freebies.”
I told our local hospital the same thing, and they said there was noting that they could do about it. Oh really? I told them that sure there is, start obeying federal law.
Just look at what they did with HCQ and Ivermectin. Just to prolong their scamdemic and get rid of Trump, and even then…
So many hospital administrators belong in prison. More like, they belong standing in front of a firing squad.
I have heard too many horror stories of people who lost everything because of medical expenses. As if being sick wasn’t enough punishment. Meanwhile, the lawmakers who create this mess, get free gold plated healthcare that WE all pay for. And that’s even after just serving one measly term.
If you are worried about the government seizing your assets if you need medical care, you need to have a Trust made at some point and put your assets under someone else’s name who you trust.
Tell the hospital to take a flying leap.
The problem is that we are domiciled in a lawless society.
Thankfully, I haven’t heard form them since my poison penned letter. LOL
We wouldn’t be domiciled in a lawless society if so many people weren’t such go along to get along cowards out there.
“We wouldn’t be domiciled in a lawless society if so many people weren’t such go along to get along cowards out there.”
“Everybody knows that the dice are loaded.
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed.”
A very sad and true commentary on our times.
On a side bar, Jews don’t cross their fingers.
(Wrong religion. 😉😃)
There is a good reason the movie, Pump Up The Volume used that song, and featured it so predominately. Even as the lyrics clearly state; “everybody knows the deal is rotten”, but no one says anything, or worse does anything.
My dad once told me that he used to get angry at talk show hosts because all they did was talk, and where was their walk? But then he realized that their talk is their walk. Their only job is to analyze what is going on, give their opinion and information, and defend their ideas. It is we who have to decide what we do with that information.
That was the essence of the “I’m mad as Hell, and I’m not going to take anymore” speech in the movie, The Network.
All I know is to “talk hard” myself.
I ponder daily what we can possibly do, and what will be the last straw.
I feel like the deck is stacked far worse against us, than what our Founding Fathers ever faced.
Our founders probably wouldn’t see it that way. Their homes were being raided, and burned, and their family members killed by King George’s red coats.
So far, our war isn’t kinetic.
They didn’t set fires to our homes.
They’re just trying to make suburban life very unpleasant and orchestrate us living off of bugs.
They going about things in a more roundabout way now. Things have changed a lot since then. But some things haven’t.
They’re indeed going about it in a far more round about way overall.
I agree that some things haven’t changed.
Meghan carries Harry’s testicles around in her purse.
Where there is plenty of room for them, I’m sure.
They were probably very small to start with, hence all of his feminine features.
Biden in 87 claiming to have marched for civil rights.
Biden admitting that he didn’t march in civil rights protests.
TaliBiden supported segregation in 1975
He was even called out on that fact during a primary debate, by none other than Heels Up.
In the past I have posted a great montage of all of Bidet’s racist comments, I will have to look for it.
YES! I recollect when Harris called him out on it.
And then the Mattress Hoping Relic later recanted, and said “it was just a campaign”, which is very telling, because she admits that she lies just to get votes.
Indeed she did.
Mattress Hopping Relic makes me laugh out loud every time I think about it.
Mattress Hoping Relic, puts a whole new meaning to it.
Very appropriate typo.
In that case, I wont edit it. LOL
I cannot stop laughing….
I owe that one to Sophia of The Golden Girls, when she called Blanche that. I remember she also said to Blanche, “Can it, you 50 year old mattress.” LOL
Sophia was my favorite character.
I didn’t see all of the episodes.
My maternal grandmother loved that show.
I saw them, if she was watching it.
I opine that Rose could dance circles around AOC.
Next to ACO, Rose was NASA material.
Of course, Rose wasn’t malevolent like AOC.
Did you ever see the one where Rose was auditioning to become a news anchor? I will have to see if I can find a clip on YouTube. It was so funny, because she did a mock interview with Dorothy, and asked her about all the old folks homes brochures she had hidden in her dresser, and if she was planning to put Sophia away. LOL
O.M.G. I didn’t. That sounds absolutely hilarious!
“Next to ACO, Rose was NASA material.”
Okay, that is seriously such a great line! 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
“Of course, Rose wasn’t malevolent like AOC.”
What do you know? I found the clip instantly.
I love Sophia’s reaction to the news about Rose being an anchor woman.
The entire clip was hysterical.
“Nail her Rose. Nail her. A good reporter always gets her story.”
Her pretend time. LOL
I was introduced to this show because my grandma watched it. Both my mom and dad were working on Saturday night, so I would stay at my Grandma’s.
Her pretend time.
When I went to my grandparents for Shabbos, we sometimes slept over Saturday night.
That’s when I saw the shows.
My grandmother didn’t view much television at all.
I remember how she was blown away and very disgusted about how many people aired their “dirty laundry” on talk shows in front of millions of people.
Most of the dirty laundry aired on those talk shows was all fake, and invented by producers to make it more “interesting.”
I’m not familiar with the details to those shows, but never knew that.
How did you glean this information?
A good friend of mine used to work with a guy who was on one of those shows.
In all honesty, the problem they were originally supposed to be on to talk about may not have been any more than what people would call Dr. Laura about. But the producers would tell the guests what to say to make it more “interesting”, and in the shows like Jerry Springer, where the fights break out, were generally being egged on by the producers.
People who have been on “reality shows” have come out and said the same thing is done there as well. It’s all an act to make you think society is even more screwed up than it is, and to keep the bottom-feeders tuned in.
She was paid for recanting by being installed as vp.
I hate auto correct.
Biden claiming to have marched in civil rights protests after admitting a year earlier that he didn’t.
Yesterday, he once again made the same claim again, he is consistent, consistently a pandering liar.
He is incapable of telling the truth. He was a supporter of and supported by the KKK
In one of the clips , he ADMITTED THAT HE DID NOT MARCH in civil rights protest; however, yesterday he made the claim again and added to it.
I saw that.

Filter, that is a name I have not heard in a while, I hope she is doing well.
I really miss her.
I have her phone number and email address.
I will Be’Ezras Hashem try to call her tomorrow; at a bare minimum send her an email.
I also want to send emails to Sarah and DW.
They’re both really suffering.
Please say Hello to Filter, Sarah & DW. Thank you.
You’re on, Be’Ezras Hashem!
Hello, Diaspora my friend! Good to see you ! Been a bit busy with stuff out here. Gotta catch up with reading and upvoting comments. Ongoing prayers to you and to each of our friends both here and on other blogs. 😊
Thank you Sarah. Much appreciated. I pray for my online friends all the time. Friends like Rivka and yourself are a Blessing to all of us. Please keep us in your prayers. G-d Bless.
G-d bless you too, Disapora, my friend. Prayers ongoingly
Thank you my friend. Much appreciated.
I am sorry they are suffering, they are great ladies.
I wish I had the proverbial magic wand to make everything better for all good people.
I trust that G-D has a plan.
That knowledge is what keeps me sane, normal, and happy.
They are among the best of the best of ladies.
OMG! Filter, Sarah and Desert Woman are suffering? I’m sorry to hear that. Anything I can do?
Apologies for not being clear.
I am sure that Filter is fine.
DW, is trying to put herself back together between the sudden loss of her mother, the betrayal of her sister, and loss of her job.
Sarah’s sister Yolanda Shoshana is in hospice care at home from about six weeks ago.
They’re extremely close.

Former Congressman Adam Kinzinger sells signed copies of Jan 6th report for $100
January 6 Committee member and Never-Trumper Adam Kinzinger is selling signed copies of the committee’s 845-page final report for $100.
The description for the item reads, “On January 6, 2021, the United States came perilously close to losing its democracy. A mob instigated by the president of the United States violently attacked the Capitol Building in Washington, DC, seeking to disrupt the certification of the electors in the presidential election and prevent the peaceful transfer of power for the first time in American history.”
The report, which can be purchased for $100 but found for free on the internet, can also be purchased with a signed Kinzinger hat for just $60.

He thinks that he could be a presidential candidate, I would never vote for him, never.
I heard that he has these aspirations.
I concur absolutely.
He was a traitor from the get-go.
Kinziger wants a Kinziger-Cheney ticket and Cheney wants the reverse, but they as despised.
What a freakish and nightmarish combination!
A two headed rino.

Marjorie Taylor Greene will be a member of the Homeland Security Committee in the House
Republican Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene of Georgia and Paul Gosar of Arizona have been given committee assignments for the new Congress, after being booted from their committees by Democrats and some Republicans for their incendiary remarks, sources told CNN.
The House GOP Steering Committee on Tuesday agreed to place Greene on the House Homeland Security Committee, which has jurisdiction over the border and will likely play a role in potentially impeaching Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
And Gosar got a seat on the House Committee on Natural Resources, where he previously served.

Push to develop mRNA vaccine patches
The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) said it would provide up to $4.3 million to biotechnology company Vaxxas to advance development of a patch for mRNA vaccines.
High-density microarray patches (HD-MAPs) are made up of thousands of microscopic points attached to a small patch.
Each point contains a tiny dose of vaccine in a dried format. When put on the skin, the patch delivers vaccine to the immune cells immediately below the skin surface.

New Hospital Video of Patient’s Death Over Mask Dispute Raises Questions
Stephanie Warriner died following an interaction with four hospital security guards over a dispute about her COVID-19 mask being under her chin instead of over her mouth.
She went to Toronto General Hospital in May 2020 seeking medical help for chronic breathing issues and ended up dead — not as a result of the virus or medical treatment but following a troubling incident with hospital security who are seen in a disturbing video interacting with her over the placement of the medical mask.
“She left there in a body bag,” said her sister Denise Warriner Smith.

‘Not sure it’s him:’ Israel responds to Hamas video of Israeli hostage Avera Mengistu.
Israel on Monday responded to and questioned the authenticity of a video published by Gaza’s ruling Hamas group that apparently showed Israeli hostage Avera Mengistu asking for help.
“Israel is investing all its resources and efforts to return its captive and missing sons home,” Israel’s Prime Minister’s Office said in a tweet shortly after the video was published.
Israel’s army spokesman Ran Kochav also commented on the video: “We are examining this video. I hope the video is
authentic and that Mengistu is in full health. It’s hard for me to say what the level of credibility of the video is,” he told Kan public broadcaster.

UK Builds Temporary Morgues To Deal With 50,000 Vaccine-Related Deaths
Airports and tourist spots are being converted and an investigation has been launched as the kingdom suffers 50,000 excess deaths and experts are left “baffled.”
Top cardio doc Aseem Malhotra told the BBC amid the crisis that “The mRNA Covid vaccines do carry a cardiovascular risk. And I’ve actually called for a suspension because there is a lot of uncertainty at the moment on what is causing the excess deaths.”
A council gritting yard now has a refrigeration unit guarded 24/7, according to the Sun – while the Mirror reports shipping containers being set up in public places like office parks as the Human Tissue Authority declares “mortuary capacity issues.”

Funny little story, there was an online Xymox quiz some years ago, to see how much of a fan you were, and I think I may have found the original link on their website.
So it contained questions, gave lyric samples, and had audio that had small clips from songs, only 5 seconds, and you had to guess it in 10 seconds. Not only did I pass the quiz, but the message I got when my score was announced was “you are a Xymox god, and we bow down to you.” LOL

I always did look at those temples with disgust, knowing, which wasn’t mention here, that not only were tens of thousands of people sacrificed in these temples to their silly little tin gods, but that the skulls of children fill the insides of the bricks of these temples. That’s why that ‘civilization’ no longer exists.
And yes, I can, and do pass harsh moral judgement on them, just as I do my own government for the sacrifices it demanded of our own citizens. Whether it was rationing, drafts in war time, in the name of national security, and now with the COVID.
I gladly accept the label of “heretic”, “antisocial” and just all around bad person, when I consider the people calling me that are just a bunch of little demons.
Gaslighting is what abusive spouses do. What does that say about our government, and our relationship with them? If you ask me, it says it is time to file for a divorce, sue for alimony, and get a restraining order for good measure.
The “fact checkers” were calling this a “conspiracy theory” and claiming ” there is no evidence that the government is considering banning gas stoves”, whild the media and globalist organizations were OPENLY CALLING FOR IT.
All the more reason I am so proud to be “counter culture.”
The Gen Z “counter culture” protest for MORE GOVERNMENT, they are not counter culture, or anti-establishment, they are indoctrinated sheep or the GOVERNMENT; however, in our generations it meant something totally different.
In our generation it meant questioning authority, and conventional norms.
Now it is pushing the government agenda , while claiming the country is broken, racist, etc………, but, demanding more government, more rules, more laws, etc…
My philosophy was that government was the problem. At least a major contributor, if not the primary cause. What they didn’t cause, they only made worse. So for me and my ilk, less government was the answer.
I’m sure those sick faggots at the FIB are prancing around in her panties right now.

Al Gore is a Globalist Lapdog, a Lowlife and a Leading Clown… He operates on the premise that ‘Masses are Asses’!
“NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WIVB) — A new report from the National Center for Public Policy Research says former Vice President Al Gore’s Nashville home uses significantly more energy than the average home.
According to the report, Gore’s home energy usage averaged at 19,241 kilowatt hours (kWh) per month, which is 34 times higher than the average dwelling’s usage of 901 kWh per month.
The report reiterates that point by saying “Gore guzzles more electricity in one year than the average American family uses in 21 years.”…”
Yes, a total hypocrite.
AND that is only ONE of his homes, he owns at least THREE of them.
Just the power from his heated pool could provide electricity to SIX homes for a year.
BUt, but, but, but he purchases carbon offsets for $400 a month to make up for his flights on private jets, his cars and excessive lifestyle.

Breaking news, YWN reports:
Israel’s Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled that Shas chairman Aryeh Deri cannot legally serve as a minister in Israel’s government, a ruling that may lead to a major coalition crisis.
Ten judges voted to disqualify Deri, with only one judge, Yosef Elron, voting in favor of Deri being allowed to serve as minister.
The ruling is in response to petitions against Deri’s appointment to ministerial positions in the new government of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu due to his conviction for tax offenses last year. Deri, who is serving as the Interior and Health Ministers, said on Monday that he won’t resign even if the court disqualifies him.
His plan was to wait until the Republicans took the house then get the Propagandists to blame them.
Caught in their own lies.

Tony you are one ungrateful Limey!!!! Didn’t you know that TaliBiden was a member of the Eagle Squadron and fought in the Battle of Britain and single handed save the monarchy? Later in 1952 they begged him to become the king, but he had the hots for little Lizzy and stepped aside. Don’t you bow down to the savior of the empire?
Just paraphrasing Saint TaliBiden. He done everything, just ask him
He’s Catholic, but went to shul more than most Jews, and afterwards he went to Black church…. all according to him (actually).
Did he drive a truck between the two , delivering food to poor black children , letting them play with his leg hair while they ate?
Did you ever hear his tale about being a truck driver, or where he claimed he worked at an all black pool and the little kids played with his leg hairs? lol
You might want to avoid this based on the green and puking faces, but, this is too funny to not post; joe Biden talking about kids playing with his leg hairs, learning about roaches and kids playing on his lap, it is hilarious.
Warning! If anyone watches this , put the coffee down first.
Meaning no disrespect whatsoever Heaven forbid, without any threads of self-righteousness, I refuse to view any and all insanity such as that.
It destroys and damages my soul.
Personally, I don’t want to hear about it either.
I’m prone to nausea as it is.
This was not a criticism, just an explanation.
I am but one member of this blog.
It shouldn’t revolve around me.
I’m extremely grateful to everyone’s understanding of my sensitivities to what I see and hear.
The warnings from everyone are never taken for granted.
I’m taking a pre-emptive strike by saying, that no apology is necessary.
I knew that you wouldn’t; however, there might have been a person that never saw this.
Unfortunately, I find it necessary to understand the extent of the insanity and dementia that we are dealing with; however, I understand completely you position and actually respect you more for it.
You’re very kind.
I don’t live in a vacuum.
I know what evil is transpiring.
However, it is destructive and unnecessary for me to know every single ugly detail.
I can do NOTHING about it sans to vote and most importantly to daven.
Davening is beyond underrated.
If only more would appreciate what having a strong relationship with Hashem and talking to Him at a bare minimum once daily accomplishes.
Moreover, realize this:
There is never a vacuum that exists in the mind.
If it’s not filled with the proper thoughts and ideas, one has to ask themselves what their mind is filled with.
It’s a question that everyone has to answer for themselves.
I choose to distance myself from things that will be poison for me.
I salute freedom.
I’m a Reaganite Conservative.
For myself, I view everything through the lense of Torah.
(Hashem, our Creator, gave me the tools that I need to navigate the world.
I immerse myself every single day in Torah (unless I cannot think properly due to lack of strength from being sick). Even on days when I don’t feel well, I listen to or read at least one thing about Torah.
I love listening to lectures because I can still focus and cook supper, for example, simultaneously.)
I most definitely don’t expect everyone else to do so (herein).
I find out everything that I need to know.
The extent of the mental illness is unnecessary garbage that would be unnecessary and unwanted in my journey into who I am trying to become.
(That’s MY journey. Everyone gets to choose.)
FYI, I want to be clear that I am not studying for hours at a time.
(I wish I could. I try to do two hours a day and/or mix it up with lectures.)
That being said, the work I do is very spiritual because it involves Torah.
Of course, I have other responsibilities as well.
However, I receive empowerment, wisdom and inoculation (to the extent) from the insanity because of my learning Torah.
I actually read that.
PCM in Bidenland.
I HATE Bidenland.
He really believes that he has!
He resides in his own alternate reality universe.
His problem (one of many), is the fact that he’s a serial liar.
So many lies over his lifetime with dementia on top of it, makes it impossible to keep track of everything.
Moreover, he was always gaffe prone and an utter fool.
We shouldn’t expect anything differently now.
His civil war experience really helped out, “no joke”.
This is a written collection of Joe’s achievements.
I cannot stop laughing….
I salute your expression.
My sentiments precisely.

The US Embassy in Jerusalem asked the Israeli government to withdraw a plan to expand the Nof Zion neighborhood of Jerusalem, Channel 12 News reported.
The plan was removed from the agenda of the planning and construction committee in Jerusalem, to avoid embarrassing the US during the visit of National Security Advisor Jack Sullivan, who landed in Israel this evening (Wed), met with President Herzog and will meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu tomorrow.
Opposition leader Yair Lapid responded: “I congratulate Ministers Ben-Gvir and Smotrich for showing responsibility and removing the plan to expand the Jewish neighborhood in Nof Zion.”
Former minister Yoaz Hendel said: “The gap between the right-wing’s talk and their impotence is so glaring.
During the previous government, a similar demand was received from the US not to approve the construction of a new residential neighborhood in the center of Jerusalem – Givat Hashaked. The Minister of the Interior at the time, Ayelet Shaked, demanded that the construction be approved despite the American opposition.
Shaked told told Israel National News – Arutz Sheva in September: “As I promised, despite all the pressures from at home and abroad, the Givat Hashaked plan was approved today by the district committee. This plan is located in the heart of Jerusalem and it is unthinkable to prevent development and construction in this area as well as all over the city. This is an important plan that will lead to an increase in the supply of housing units, employment areas and public buildings for the well-being of the residents.”
What the HECK?!

Israel is treated differently than any other country in existence.
The Fakestinians are hellbent on trying to steal Israel.
They’ll never get away with it.
In times like these I think of the verse in Tehillim
2:4 “He Who dwells in Heaven laughs; the L-rd mocks them.”
The irony of the reaction, of the Israeli Left response to this demand, versus this current government is UNFREAKING BELIEVABLE.
This morning, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Gilad Erdan addressed the UN Security Council during a meeting on the situation in the Middle East. In his speech, the Ambassador attacked the lies the Palestinian Authority and its supporters present at the UN. He said, “Over and over again, we have heard how the past year has been the deadliest year for the Palestinians…Yet these numbers and statistics are not facts. Not even close. They are based on a fundamentally flawed and biased methodology. A methodology of discrimination, which Israel refuses to accept.
“Let me explain what I mean. In his letter yesterday, the Palestinian Representative told the story for example Hamdi Shaker Abu Dayah. How Hamdi was supposedly shot and killed in cold blood. Yet what my colleague forgot to mention, was that Hamdi, a terrorist that Hamas posthumously glorified, was an imminent threat. Hamdi was actively shooting at soldiers in the moments that he was killed, and this occurred only one day after he opened fire at an Israeli bus.
“The vast majority of Palestinian fatalities and casualties are not innocent civilians minding their own business, they are terrorists neutralized in the midst of acts of violence.”
Ambassador Erdan added, “According to the UN report presented to you, here, only twenty Israelis were murdered by terrorists in 2022, when in reality thirty-one Israelis were murdered. Same goes for injured Israelis. The UN number 253 for injured Israelis, whereas the true number is 418. Discrepancy between the reports and the facts are in the hundreds. Israeli deaths and injuries supposedly do not matter….This may have been the deadliest year for Palestinian terrorists, but it was also the year with the most terror attacks committed against Israelis in a decade.”
The Ambassador also referenced the Palestinians’ decision to seek an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice in The Hague, “Let’s not forget that here in September 2021, while speaking in the GA, President Abbas brazenly threatened Israel on the global stage. In the same vein of consistent Palestinian rejectionism, he set forward an ultimatum. Either Israel gives in to one-hundred percent of the Palestinians’ demands – forget negotiations or mutual concessions – or he will turn to the UN in order to abuse the power of the ICJ. If threatening Israel with an ultimatum is not a unilateral step, I don’t know what is.”
Ambassador Erdan mentioned the steps taken by Israel’s Security Cabinet following the unilateral Palestinian Authority move to again abuse UN mechanisms in their appeal to the ICJ, “When Israel is faced with a threat of terror, like any country would, Israel acts to defend itself. So, when we were faced with the Palestinians latest one-sided act of multilateral terror, we refused to stand idly by. Each measure that was taken by Israel in response to this destructive resolution, wasn’t only justified and legal, but should have been taken long time ago…Nevertheless, the only reason Israel held off on implementing these measures, was because we did not want to harm chances for dialogue. Yet with the adoption of this resolution, the Palestinians stabbed a knife in the heart of any chances for dialogue or reconciliation. They proved that they are not interested in dialogue.”
Very well stated by Ambassador Erdan.
HEAR, HEAR!! 👏👏👏💯💯💯
Erdan, of course is correct.
Every neutralized terrorist is painted out to be as pure as the snow.
Moreover, pictures are circulated of the mother of the murderer crying over her son’s body.
I have seen this a plethora amount of times.
It makes my blood boil.
Israel is always painted as the aggressor.
Poor innocent Fakestinians who murdered and maimed Jewish People and got killed to prevent further murders.
How dare Israel defend itself?

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced that will not seek re-election and plans to step down no later than early February, Reuters reports.
A general election would be held on October 14, she added.
“This summer, I had hoped to find a way to prepare for not just another year, but another term – because that is what this year requires,” a visibly emotional Ardern said during the statement. “I have not been able to do that.”
Her term will conclude no later than February 7, according to Reuters.
Ardern said she believed the New Zealand Labour Party would win the upcoming election and added that a vote to elect the next Labour leader would be held on Sunday
I don’t know the politics of New Zealand.
How long has it been under Leftist rule?
I have a friend that is from New Zealand, and when I met her in 2007, she was already complaining about the leftist politics.
Desperate and defeated leftists in Israel set to import US left-wing violence.
Here’s what my friend Doug has to say about it….
In the US ,ANTIFA only gets away with their violence in leftist controlled areas; if they don’t have superior numbers while armed, or the ability to find a few stragglers of old or weak, they don’t dare.
That’s because they are wimps and cowards. I find it hilarious when I see a video of these punks getting pwned!
My favorite was the one that caught fire and danced about.
Good afternoon Bill.
That was an excellent article.
“Golan’s “sovereignty” is “sovereignty for me but not for thee.””
Democracy, in Golan’s mind and through his despicable words, only exists if the Left is victorious.
Doug is correct in using the analogy of ANTIFA, to what Golan and his goons wants to incite in Israel.
There is no difference.
Naturally, they don’t want to discuss anything.
The Left is irrational, tyrannical, and insane.
When they do not get their way, they
respond with rioting and violence.
Doug’s closing paragraph is from the beautiful verse in Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 1:18 “Come now, let us reason together, says the L-rd. If your sins prove to be like crimson, they will become white as snow; if they prove to be as red as crimson dye, they shall become as wool.
(This is the power of Teshuvah (repentance.))
On 19 April 1775 the government attempted to disarm all Americans at Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts. My family told the government where they could go. In honor of that event I propose that today is National Firearms Day. Everybody should go out and acquire a firearm every 19 April
May their memories be blessed.
That’s a terrific idea.
I very enthusiastically and vehemently support your motion.
If anyone conducted their finances the way our government does and did, their credit cards would have been cut up ages ago.
For the government their solution is to print more money and dole it out to illegals, terrorists, Ukraine, etc.
It just never ends.
This is precisely why I never supported Torres, even with his pro-Israel stance.

Apologies that I have been so very not present overall the past couple of weeks.
Please note that if I am not here at all, it means I got sick.
Around and around I go.
I contracted more than a bad cold.
(I’m still on antibiotics for strep, which BH went away. It’s very frustrating and exhausting.
BUT, it will pass.)
One of my oldest friends who grew up around the corner from my house, and is domiciled across the street from me made a wedding last night.
She told me not to be a no show despite a royal case of a rhinovirus (cold).
Everyone is getting sick.
I went and kept a distance from everyone.
I’m so very grateful that Hashem enabled me to make it.
I sat for almost the entire wedding.
But I made it.
If anyone gets sick, it’s my friend’s fault. 🙈🙉🙊
Truth be told, I was told that I could go by a friend of mine who’s a doctor.
She said there’s a plethora amount of viruses and strep going around my town.
I won’t make the difference.
I hope I did the right thing.
From HP regarding Deri.
I queried him about it.
“Morning, and just more Israeli politicking as usual. Aryeh Deri didn’t pay taxes or not enough taxes or whatever isn’t a criminal offence, or rather shouldn’t be so, but Leftist Judges can’t see passed their own biased
judgments. So he should continue as a Minister and wait it out for however long it takes too.”

Do you know how time consuming it is to check lettuce?
We’re not allowed to eat any bugs, so it requires extremely meticulous checking.

Astonishingly to me…. the first hour or the first time I was in Jerusalem, walking around trying to find my flat, some Israelis came up to me and asked for directions… in Hebrew.
You must have obviously not looked lost, but how very ironic.
Did you know Hebrew at all at that point?
Israelis tend to speak a very rapid Ivrit (Hebrew). (Yes, I use the their dialect when speaking with them — unless I want to make them crazy.
I’ve had to ask them to slow down several times when I was there last.
I don’t need it to be extremely slow, just not jabbering away. 😄😄😄)
Batya learned how to talk a bit slower when we converse in Ivrit. It makes a huge difference.
How did you finally find your flat?
I explained that I am not from there and they moved on. Shortly after, I found my flat… I was in the right area, just the numbers were not marked clearly.
They missed a couple of parts. 1.) Blame the Jewish victim. 2.) Condemn the Jewish homeowner who happened to be armed, and shot the intruder their own life, and the lives of their family.
Oh wait… That sounds so familiar. Where else have I also heard that? Oh, that’s right. From Democrats.
There are absolutely correlations to this.
They both share evil, as their common denominator.
And they do it all in the name of “Morality”. It’s gaslighting.
I remember hearing very similar arguments from the commies/pacifists/moralists during the Cold War. They actually argued with a straight face that America should decommission all of our nuclear warheads because “it would be a sign of moral strength.”
Notice how those people never say the same thing to the other side? Same thing here. They never lecture Hamas for provoking Israel, and using their own people as human shields in order to lie and gaslight the world. Just Israel for defending itself.
Same with Progressive policing and prosecution. The victim is always blamed, never the criminal. And they argue prosecuting the criminal is prosecuting the poor. And are they ever called out for painting all poor people with the same broad brush as criminals?
No. Instead, they get called saints. We see the same thing with “refugees”, aka, illegal aliens. Ergo, Martha’s Vineyard and all the rich libTARD NIMBYs.
Again, and not to beat a dead horse, but this goes back to that article and why I think Christendom is shrinking, especially in the age of COVID. Because the similarities with regards to totalitarianism, sanctimoniousness and the cruelty of the hypocrisy between the statist left the church and are far too great to ignore.
“And they do it all in the name of “Morality”. It’s gaslighting.”
EXACTLY. They don the robe of self-righteousness and come at you with the holier than thou attitude.
The illegals are treated like royalty, while We the People are treated despicably while being milked out of every dollar that we have.
This country is so bankrupt, yet it’s virtuous to send boatloads of money for every nonsensical cause and reason.
When we object, we’re not compassionate enough.
I agree with your closing paragraph completely.
You’re not beating a dead horse.
You’re stating the truth.
And as they take ever dollar from us, and give it to the illegals, and other assorted deadbeats, they have the nerve to say “look at what a nice person I am.”
These are the holy rollers that make me want to play the roll of the devil.
I’m not even Jewish, and since learning there was a thing called “anti-missionary work”, I want to get involved, because destroying the church, and piety in general, has become a mission of mine, and for this very reason.
The way I see it. Since these self-righteous hypocrites, both in the church and on the left, like to think of themselves as Jesus Christ, then in that case, I would love to accommodate them by nailing them to a cross, and let the maggots feed on them.
I watched the original “Battlestar Galactica” the other night and saw the same results of pacificism echoed in the 70s.
A peace agreement with the enemy, troops ordered to stand down and the shock of politicians when they are betrayed. And Dr. Gaius Baltar selling them all out, like George Soros.
Yup! These “victims” are pure evil 😈
And I am someone that loves animals, but these PETA tards take it to such an extreme.
They’re seriously deranged beyond description.
Notice how the leftTARDs are all about keeping families together as long as they aren’t American and hetero-normative families.
Even chickens given more consideration than we are.
They’re so very despicable.
Forget about chickens.
Silverfish are given more consideration than we are
Remember how the drought in California was purposely caused to protect silverfish?
If I would ever see one, I would use Raid.
These people are absolutely totally insane.
I love your closing statement by the way.
Exactly. I am wondering how long it will be before Gavin Newsom finds an excuse to bring the drought kits back out.
That’s me almost every day lately.
I feel your pain.
There are days that I am more energetic (such as days when I am not gifted with additional illness and my chronic pain is under control).
I think a lot of mine would be resolved if I could just get away for a few weeks somewhere without any worries or concerns about anything. To where I could hang out with some friends, and we can also do our own thing at our own pace.
Preferably in a place that isn’t too sleepy and lackluster because everyone has ASPERGER’S!! (Hat tip to Carolyn.)
But I don’t want the opposite extreme like New Orleans at Marti Gras either.
If I could just change my environment for the better, I know many of my issues would subside.
I totally agree with you.
You don’t really have much of a social outlet and are in limbo being unemployed.
Add to that all of the Karens in your neighborhood, it’s enough to make anyone feel rundown and burned out.
I concur absolutely with your closing statement.
There is a reason I basically only go out at night. Because most of the Karens are at home watching their woke garbage on Netflix, and I can go walk in peace without listening to any of their nonsense.
Carolyn tried to suggest doing some walks earlier, and I said that I am never up early for the reasons stated above. The only way that is going to happen is if I am given full immunity, so if I decide to pop one of these Karens in the jaw, I don’t get charged with assault, or murder should I ever decide that just punching them isn’t enough. LOL
Now, if Sarita wants to come out here with her flamethrower, I would consider it.
I forgot to close my front gate when I drove in, I inadvertently let in a young couple of JWs; I need to set that up on a timer. Lol
That wouldn’t have been a fun experience!
It was a little comic relief!
Once I started shooting when a couple of them came around the corner and I did not know that they were there; they were in no danger, but, I am sure they had to clean themselves afterwards.
I now have an ornate metal gate with a remote to open it when I drive through, but, I failed to close it after my daily delivery.
Where was Al Bundy with the baseball bat when you needed him? LOL
Oh, that was positively HILARIOUS!
I know an easy way to get them to move along, I always tell them that my (non-blood) uncle is one and he has never been able to convert me; JWs are not allowed to waste too much time on those that will not commit to them. lol
I gave a fix for that: Jolt Cola!
The countdown toward a possible U.S. government default began Thursday with Treasury implementing accounting measures to buy time as frictions between President Joe Biden and House Republicans raise alarms about whether the United States can sidestep a potential economic crisis.
The Treasury Department said in a letter to congressional leaders it has started taking “extraordinary measures” as the government has run up against its legal borrowing capacity of $38.381 trillion. An artificially imposed cap, the debt ceiling has been increased roughly 80 times since the 1960s.
The last I remember, there is $1,000,000,000,000.00 of unspent “covid” flash cash; a little creative accounting would put that back.
They could also STOP SENDING MONEY TO BE LAUNDERED IN UKRAINE and all the other payments to dang near every country in the world , to include china under the name of foreign aid.
In 1985 the debt ceiling was raised from 1.9 billion to 2.1 billion.
Good grief, they dropped the ball on that one.
I also don’t like the way they report the news.
Now that Raw And Unfiltered News is in business (and are staunch Conservatives), I am going to delete the JewishNews24 channel app from my phone.
Thank you most kindly for the heads-up. Very much appreciated.
I wouldn’t say they dropped the ball more then they enabled the truth to be revealed.
In this week’s Parsha, Pharoah makes all sorts of promises numerous times in the midst of the plagues. He beseeches Moshe Rabbeinu to ask Hashem to take away the plague. When it’s removed, he doesn’t keep his promises.
Rabbi Yerucham Levovitz ZTL explains that we shouldn’t be too hasty to mock Pharoah. The Torah comes from the word “Leharos” (to teach).
We are to learn a very powerful lesson from this.
How many times have we been in a difficult situation, prayed and said that we would do better in certain areas of life, and don’t follow through once the situation is resolved and/or passes?
This is tragically human nature.
We have to be diligent to not behave like Pharoah, and to follow through on our pledges and commitments.
(For anyone who wants to listen to a phenomenal and energetic speaker (Michoel Brooke), he posts fantastic two minute lectures every single morning on his WhatsApp status.
I very recently discovered him.
Way to many politicians are in the same boat with the pharoah. They make promises they have no intention of keeping.
Good afternoon George.
That is absolutely true.
The Harvard Kennedy School reversed itself on Thursday and decided to offer a fellowship to Kenneth Roth.
Roth was reportedly offered the position by Carr Center for Public Policy Executive Director Sushma Raman last May and accepted it the following month. However, the decision would be overruled by the center’s dean, Douglas Elmendorf, who concluded that Roth’s tweets showed an anti-Israel bias.
The New York Times quoted Elmendorf as saying that he had made an “error,” and that his about-face was not a result of pressure from university supporters.
Can anyone please help me with this question.
At some point (I cannot recollect if it was in the midst of brain fog or my year long recovery from one of my surgeries), I remember reading some information that made me think that Nikki Haley is a globalist.
Does anyone else remember this, have examples, or am I thinking of the wrong person?
To my recollection, I would not call her actions as globalist; but, I would say that her actions at times were contradictory to the MAGA agenda, I would describe her more as a neo-con.
I believe that her policies were pro-Israel and she did remove the US from the human rights council over it having a “chronic anti-Israel bias”.
I wouldn’t vote for her by choice and admittedly my memories of her actions are vague, but, she needs to follow the path of the likes of Cheney and Kinsiger, never to hold an elected office.
Her non-profit received a lot of money from Democrats and Globalists after she tossed PRESIDENT Trump under the bus, lots and lots of DARK MONEY ALSO, where the donors are unknown, but , my $5,000 donation to a PAC got my name in the paper and a city contract taken away from me. hmmmm
Hello Sapper 9! Hope this new year finds you well.
The same to you, I hope all is going great for you and yours.
New – Ivan Provorov jersey sells out after media crucifies him for not wearing a pride-themed jersey.
Just a few short days after most in the mainstream media crucified Ivan Provorov, his Philadelphia Flyers’ jersey has officially sold out online at both the NHL Shop and Fanatics.
Both websites are advertising their Provorov jerseys as ‘almost gone’ as the only men’s jerseys lefts are size extra-small.
Provorov has dominated headlines throughout the week after deciding not to wear a Pride-themed jersey during warm-ups ahead of Philadelphia’s game against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.
While the rest of his teammates donned the LGBT-themed sweaters during warm-ups, Provorov remained in the locker room.

Filter is dealing with the ups and down of life, but sends her regards and will try to drop my sometime.
I’m in the middle of drafting her an email.
You beat me to it.
Did you speak on the phone?
I was planning on calling her.
(We spoke some time ago.)
We had a great conversation.
As my voice has been yo-yoing these past two weeks, I am trying to preserve it.
I am hoping to make it to choir on Monday, Be’Ezras Hashem.
I’m really excited because we’re doing the Amen song that was entered in 1995 Eurovision by Israel.
It’s absolutely magnificent.
We did it in my Passaic choir and performed it.
(I always love a great encore.)
I sent emails as I said I would to Sarah and DW.
I cannot imagine what Sarah is going through.
An email, still lets her know that I am thinking about her and she doesn’t have to respond until she can.
The same goes for DW.
I’ll Be’Ezras Hashem let everyone know if and when I receive responses from the latter two.
I almost ended this posting with “best wishes.”
JUST IN: DeSantis Goes Off On ‘Elites’ Attending Davos World Economic Forum
God? Who is God!?
By: Rabbi Shraga Simmons
Parshas Va’eira (Exodus 6:2-9:35)
The purpose of the Ten Plagues.
The story is well-known: The Jews want to leave Egypt, so God sends 10 fierce plagues … and Pharaoh’s opposition is adamant.
How is it possible that Pharaoh could fail to recognize the obvious deeds of God Almighty Himself?!
Pharaoh epitomizes denial of God. This is evident from Exodus 5:1, the first meeting between Moses and Pharaoh, where Moses utters the immortal words: “Let My People Go!” Pharaoh responds with bewilderment: “Who is God that I should listen to him? I don’t know this God!”
The purpose of the plagues, therefore, is to announce that God is running the show. Once and for all, loud and clear.
The 10 plagues are actually a progression, a process bringing Pharaoh to a recognition of God. Consider:
The first plague turns the Nile River into blood. Why? Because Pharaoh had been promoting himself as a deity who created the Nile, as he says, “I am the river and I created it” (Ezekiel 29:3). Pharaoh goes to such extents to preserve his godly image that he sneaks down to the river alone to relieve himself; hence God tells Moses to “pay a call on Pharaoh in the morning, when he goes out to the water…” (Exodus 7:15)
Moses turns the Nile into blood but Pharaoh is not impressed. His magicians are called in and they do the same. God might be a good magician, thinks Pharaoh, but He’s not out of my league!
God of Nature
As the plagues continue, Pharaoh is moved along a process of increasing recognition of who God is. When Moses brings the plague of lice, Pharaoh calls upon his magicians to reproduce the phenomenon, but they can’t. “‘It is the finger of God,’ say the magicians to Pharaoh.” (Exodus 8:14)
Why were they unable to make lice? The Talmud (Sanhedrin 67) says because magic has no power over something tiny.
Like modern science today, Pharaoh’s magicians can gather and manipulate existing energy, but they can’t create the building-blocks of life itself. No matter how small a particle is discovered, there is always a foundation of smaller particles below that.
When Pharaoh’s magicians say “It is the finger of God,” they refer to God by the name of Elokim, which represents the power of God acting through nature. (Elokim has the numerical value of 86, which is the same as “HaTeva” – nature.) Pharaoh and his men had advanced one huge step along the continuum. They recognized God as the force controlling nature. But this was not sufficient. Pharaoh still refuses to let the Jews go. He wants to play hardball with God.
One Step Closer
The climax of our Parsha is the plague of hail, where Egyptian resources are totally wiped out. Every tree is smashed, and every man and animal caught outdoors is killed (Exodus 9:25). As Pharaoh stands amidst the rubble of a country in ruins, he now declares, “I am wrong and God is right.” This time Pharaoh refers to God by the ineffable YKVK – the transcendent aspect of God that we cannot comprehend.
It took a lot of pounding over the head, but Pharaoh has finally matured in his recognition of God.
Yet somehow, miraculously, he still refuses to let the Jews go. How great is the human ego and the power of rationalization!
God’s Awesome World
In many respects, Pharaoh’s process is our process, too. When we are children, we think we are the center of the universe. Then, through experience and trials, we become increasingly aware of things beyond our control. Whether earthquakes, cancer, the rise and fall of fortunes, even life and death itself… these can only be ascribed to a Higher Power.
In short, life is a series of such recognitions. But sometimes we get confused, we forget, and slip back in the continuum.
Why? Because with each technological advancement, we sense the unlimited potential of man. The 4-minute mile. A robot to Mars. Cell phones and the internet. We are in awe of what is humanly possible.
But where is our awe of that which only God is possible?! Gravity… eyesight… ant farms…
The commentators say that the 10 plagues were not only for the sake of Pharaoh. They were for the Jews as well. To watch and to absorb the lessons of who God is. That training is a prerequisite to the coming revelation at Sinai.
We’ve all got to reach that recognition. One way or the other, Pharaoh is going to acknowledge God and let the Jews go. The only question is whether Pharaoh’s route to that end will be in cooperation with God, or in opposition.
The Talmud says that “each person must see himself as if he personally came out of Egypt.” Our lives are filled with messages from the Almighty, designed to teach us His ways and draw us near. He has a plan, and we have the choice: To fit in, or to be cut out. The choice is clear if we only open our eyes.

By: Rabbi Dr. Mordechai Schiffman
Parshas Va’eira (Exodus 6:2-9:35)
One of the first and most central interventions to help manage difficult emotions is deep breathing. When we feel intense emotions, such as anxiety, depression, or anger, our bodies tend to react physiologically by taking shorter and shallower breaths. By counteracting those quick and narrow breaths with a deeper breath, we increase the supply of oxygen to our brains, stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, and signaling to our bodies that we can calm down.
As strange as this might sound, deep breathing often requires training and practice. Many people take deep breaths with their upper chest, which can actually increase breathing rate and cause hyperventilation. An effective deep breath is known as diaphragmatic or belly breathing because it is done by focusing the breath below the rib cage, with the stomach moving, rather than the chest.
Toward the end of last week’s Torah portion, we are informed that after the Children of Israel saw the signs that Moshe performed and were informed that God took note of their hardships, they were convinced and believed in the redemption to come (Shemot 4:30-31). Yet, in the beginning of Parshat Vaeira when Moshe elaborates on the message of redemption, the Children of Israel do not listen “mi-kotzer ruach u-mei-avodah kasha” – “from shortness of breath and from the hard work” (Shemot 6:8). Many commentators understand these to be two distinct reasons for not listening (see Ohr HaChaim): it was difficult to pay attention because of all the physical labor (hard work), but there was an additional psychological component of being short of breath (shortness of breath) that contributed to the inability to listen. What was this psychological impediment?
If we survey the commentators, we can identify three distinct emotions that may have inhibited their ability to listen. The Midrash (Pesikta Zutarta) suggests that the Children of Israel were angry and that led them to subvert their original correct approach which was to believe in the redemption. While the Midrash does not state explicitly what they were angry about, perhaps it was because they were promised redemption and then nothing subsequently changed.
Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk suggests that they couldn’t process the message of hope because they were depressed. This is alluded to as well in the commentary of Rabbi Eliyahu Mizrachi who suggests that the Children of Israel were not psychologically prepared or receptive to messages of comfort because they were devoid of any hope. Rabbeinu Bechayei goes so far as to suggest that they were fed up with life and lost the will to live.
A third group of commentators focus on fear and anxiety as hindering the message of hope. For instance, Ramban suggests that the Children of Israel were afraid that Pharaoh or the officers would kill them. Maharal adds that besides the actual physical difficulty of the labor, they were also worried about the fact that the work was so difficult.
Regardless of whether one of the approaches is correct or if there is truth to all three, it is fascinating that they are all rooted in the term kotzer ruach, shortness of breath. The metaphor used to encapsulate emotional distress – whether anger, depression, or anxiety – is shortness of breath. Without critiquing our ancestors’ reaction in Egypt, perhaps we can learn a message for our own lower-level “hard work – avoda kasha” experiences. When we are confronted with difficulties and react with the shortness of breath of an unhealthy emotion, let us take a step back and take some deep breaths. If we can manage our anger, depression, or anxiety, perhaps we will have enough headspace to listen to the messages of hope and redemption.

Ohhh I want!!
ROFL – lol that a cat for ya!
Dispora – I’ve missed you and your wonderful memes! Thanks for the laugh.
It’s really good to hear from you, Filter. We missed you. We’ve been friends since 2015-2016 when we used to debate CAIR propagandists together with Zaba, Sarita, Pud, and the rest of our patriot friends! I keep you in my prayers and I mention you at every mass. Please keep me in your prayers. Thank you. G-d Bless.
Awe how sweet Diaspora – thank you and I do and will continue to. G-d Bess D.
Hmm…. My cat just loves to cuddle. I wonder what that cat’s problem is?

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis is taking flak over a picture hung in one of her personal areas, it is of a naked child crammed into a box, how sick is that.
I saw that – disgusting. They all are to me – 99% of hollyweirds need to just shut up already.
It was awful. What possessed her to hang that picture in her home?
She’s obviously sick in the head.
Hello WT – missed you too! Hope things are well , I’ve even been back doing puzzles finally… 🙂
Good to see you again, Filter.
I have been doing a couple of puzzles too. Haven’t yet uploaded any new ones for the site yet though.
Found an interesting article about totalitarian democracy
Hello George, thanks for the link – although I’m a bit skeptical on much that comes from wiki.
heres a link to the whole book, takes a few minutes to load

Hi Tony – she’s a naught kitty for sure, but they do love to do this sort of thing, lol.
She’s a he, actually.
Oh dear am I gonna get sued? LOL How are you doing my friend? Crazy times over here in Canada – if you get depressed and broke from gov actions on you – good news – they will KILL you and then harvest your organs – wish I was kidding. They killed over 10K last year. So demoralizing. Now they want to let kids, decide on their own without parental permission’s – to take the suicided route out of their medical problems.
Stop the world, I want to get off! The world is going mad! It has also become very sick, teaching five year olds how to change their sex, and things like that. And don’t ask me about our (corrupt) government.. It’s a world-wide plague, like covid only worse.
Agenda 21 – has been launched just as we were warned. Don’t let them stick anything more in your system , I don’t even want ANY kind of shot now.
Corrupt governments kill more people than COVID or any virus.
They encourage depressed people to commit suicide, and this of course after they cause most, if not all of the depression.
These people are maniacally evil.
Yep… so no wonder we can’t get autopsies on the loved ones who died at home – that use to be the law.
One person – the coroner decides and that’s that now.
Shabbat Shalom my friends – I’m sorry I’ve been away again for far too long. Think this is a test of every fiber in my brain these days. Thanks for the reach out Bill and PCM-Rebecca – I was just coming around – had to get my disqus account going again… so thank you for your patience and understanding of my absence.
Glad you are back!
TY Tony! 🙂
Hi Filter! How have you been?
Hanging in there… by the skin of our teeth but hanging in there we are.
This will make you sick…
Happy New Year, Filter. Hope all is well with you. You were missed my friend.
Thank you Diaspora, Happy New Year to you and yours! – we’re still going and that’s the main thing. HB got called back to work, so that’s good. Glad I’m back, feels good to be here.
Yikes! Thanks for posting the video, Trackman.
An error in the reporting is at 230 where the man claims that they are teaching social justice. The are not teaching any form of justice they are teaching hate. The are attempting to make racism against anyone that may be white. They are the worst kind of people on earth willing to lie for hate.
And that is the problem. They taught too many to hate. Hate each other and ourselves. God doesn’t believe in guilt. Why does man?
I believe in guilt, guilt for the wrongs that I HAVE DONE in my life; I have not been a saint and have done wrong in my life and for that I have guilt and regrets.
Guilt implies culpability. So say you do something wrong, how do you make it right? And if it is something you can’t make right, what do you learn from it to be a better person.
We all have things we wish we never said or did, but even those things, to constantly beat yourself up over them, accomplishes nothing.
What is worse is that the left wants you to feel guilty for things you haven’t even done. Either way, guilt is a means of control to keep you from every realizing your full potential as a human being.
It is Satan who accuses, not God. That is the most important thing to remember.
I think Rabbi Tovia Singer said it perfectly = Thanks PCM for introducing us to him.
“Sin is not a person, it is an event. And it’s an event that happened yesterday, and yesterday ended last night. Today is a new day.”

This all only further solidifies my position that government schools need to be abolished.
“…government schools need to be abolished.” – 👍👍👍
I always use the term “government schools”, I hate the term “public” and yes, schools controlled by the federal government are a big problem.
First ban teachers unions. Until then no tenure after only 3 years teaching in most states. Once tenured there is no way to rid schools older unenthusiastic teachers. They’re hanging on long enough to retire with guaranteed income and healthcare. Teachers without tenure are fired even though have more enthusiasm to teach.
“First ban teachers unions. …” – Looooong Overdue!
^And that sums up the problem, not just with teachers, but government employees in general. They took the job only for the benefits, which means that they already quit the job even before they filled ever so much as out the application.
Is it any wonder so many government workers tend to suffer from a major case of Asperger’s?
Very true. The other problem is redundancy. “Too many Federal Programs have similar or overlapping objectives, provide similar services or are fragmented across government missions”.
Guessing could give pink slips to 30 or 50 percent of government employees.
I think we could eliminate even more government workers than that. They deserve to be on the unemployment line.
Actually, those ingrates deserve to have to sleep in tents next to piles of poop on the streets of San Francisco.

I first heard that song at the DNA Lounge years ago.
That’s one of the things I miss about nightclubs. You got to hear some good tunes.

I have never met anyone involved in hook up culture that is genuinely happy.
It actually drives many of the suicides, because it cheapens the individual.
The only people who enjoy any benefit from hook-up culture are sociopaths.
So unhealthy to the body, mind and soul.
Indeed. I also notice those folks tend not to age very well.
That is true… I’ve noticed that as well.
There was a girl who used to live across the street from me that, well… Me and one of my friends who used to live in the neighborhood referred to as “Ms. Bangs-A-Lot”, because she was always on Tinder and hooking up at local bars.
She was my age, and she looked a good 10 to 15 years older. Her face looked like she lived in a war zone, it was so hard.
They do look like they’ve been ridden hard and put bed in the stables wet. I have a new half sister, and 2 younger sisters look far older than she or I. But we don’t drink or drug, she smokes, I quit years ago.

Just like Ayn Rand said; The man who speaks to you of sacrifice speaks of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master.
Sacrifice is evil and needs to be abolished.
Poverty in America is… Using a $1,300 iPhone to check your EBT balance as you feed fresh lobster to your dog.
Thanks a lot, Democrats.
In most school districts the children get free breakfast , free lunch and in some , even free dinner, while their mothers get food stamps to pay for the same exact meals; they also go to the food pantries to get free food, they learn to milk the system.
There have been many times where I was approached by women offering to “buy” my groceries for me, with the expectation of me giving them 50% of the cost in cash.
My friend Marty used to volunteer at our local food bank. He not only saw clients abusing the system, but the workers also.
Most of the volunteers are felons doing community service. In fact, when he first started volunteering, the first question the other volunteers asked him was what he was in for.
They were shocked that he actually volunteered on his own.
The food banks get donations from corporations and stores looking to download their food that is near expiration , getting them a tax write-off and a lot of their funding comes in the form of “grants” from the federal government.
Welfare queens live better than I do. Sickening.
But, but, but reparations, wealth inequality, yada, yada, yada………………………………………………..; the word is JOB and they should be required to get one.
I remember when the Obama USDA spent well over $100,000 advertising THE US EBT PROGAM IN CENTRAL AMERICA.
And all done in the name of helping your fellow man. It is so cynical and disgusting.
My friend, Julie, told a girl like this off recently. She showed me the text, and it was so brutal I couldn’t stop laughing. Instead of just telling her to get up off her lazy butt, she instead named another part of her anatomy. A part that is specific to the female anatomy. I am sure you can guess what part without me saying it outright. LOL
@proud_conservative_mom:disqus I Hope that you gets a chance to see this.
This is one of TWO Rabbi Lapin Videos. I am just finishing this one, and am waiting to review the other one. Good point being raised here about population, and the truth that not all people contribute positively to a society.
This goes back to my normal rebuttal to the BLM mantra which is NOT “All Lives Matter”. Not all lives matter anymore that a life matters, or doesn’t because of skin color. Individual lives matter.
Good afternoon WT!
I just finished listening to this outstanding show.
I will comment on it in a couple of hours, Be’Ezras Hashem.
(I need to close my eyes for an hour or so.)
I was unexpectedly away from 9:20-1:30 today.
I scribbled bullet point notes for myself so I won’t forget my thoughts on it.
I have to catch up on my notifications, want to comment on this video, and if I can, read as many comments as possible.
Tomorrow, (BH, not Tuesday), and Wednesday, are going to be insane.
Wednesday, I am going to be loopy from needing to take Dilaudid again (as per the oral surgeon), in the morning. 🙃
My husband is driving me to Westchester. I start at 9:00.
TYMK for tagging me to it.
There is a second one loaded a little further up the page. Hope you like both of them.
I’ve been looking in on Marty’s mother while he is in NYC. He should be back in a couple of days.
Just finished commenting on it.
I love his videos.
That was extremely kind of you to care for Marty’s mother so he could go to NYC.
I presumed he was an orphan.
I wonder why she put him up for adoption.
I didn’t get all the reasons, but form what I gleaned, she was in a tough spot. Better she did that other than what some other women — it makes me sick to call those ghouls that — would do.
She indeed did the right thing by choosing to give him life!
Hashem will reward her for it.
I’m going to sleep early tonight.
I have to leave the house early tomorrow morning for the next phase of my dentistry.
I start the oral surgery at 9:00.
I pray that the Dilaudid will help the pain and that I won’t endure pain afterwards.
(I was instructed again to take Dilaudid before I have the procedure. My husband is chauffeuring me. I’m going to be loopy for several hours tomorrow. I hate the sensation, but it beats being in agony.)
Here are my thoughts:
Firstly, I am not into superstition.
It’s important to note that there must always be a balance of good and evil.
People don’t know how to do the art of sorcery as they did in ancient times.
The Egyptians as you know, were a nation of people of whom many knew how to do witchcraft.
I didn’t know the history of the pentagram. I found it to be very fascinating.
YES! FAITH IS A VERY NECESSARY COMPONENT TO ALL OF THEM!
Without faith, it’s very difficult to achieve any of them.
I opine that married men are also driven to make more money than single men because they have loved ones who are depending on them.
(Of course, there are always exceptions.)
How very ludicrous that Ehrlich and Remington were taken so very seriously regarding the “Zero Population Movement”, when they were entomologists, for crying out loud! 😳😳😳
Of course, they had a skewed way of looking at humans.
Personally, I always found it the very height of arrogance and ignorance for any human to think that he or she can control any part of the world’s existence.
Such people are pompous jacka$$es!
Indeed, these people are also psychotic.
Ehrlich and Remington obviously, didn’t have faith in The Supreme Being.
If they did (as well as their followers), they couldn’t possibly believe that there is anything remotely difficult or impossible for Hashem to do.
Moreover, if one doesn’t believe in Hashem, it is all too easy to believe in gloom and doom and that the world will implode.
I concur absolutely with your statement.
Not all lives matter.
There was a time in the US, when immigrants were selected by their being able to contribute to society and be productive.
The leeches were not allowed to come.
(Tragically the red carpet is rolled out for these people these days.)
Moreover, it is imperative for a good society to have MORALS and good institutions in addition to law and order
ABSOLUTELY, morals are learned from religion (not all religions, of course)!
Correct, the world doesn’t talk about the success story that is Israel very purposefully.
It is contrary to their theories
Israel nukes the entire industrialization argument!
YES! The collapse of fertility is a direct result of secularism.
Religious people have children and it’s not terrifying to have large families, it’s joyous!
I concur absolutely, that one would have to look at specific counties in the USSA that would prove Rabbi Lapin’s statement about fertility.
He is completely spot on about it.
CORRECT. One needs to have faith to get married and have children.
“The faith muscle is helpful to family and finances.”
(It’s helpful for EVERYTHING. I can personally attest to it.)
I love the fact that Orthodox Jews (unless one is divorced or widowed) are virgins when we get married.
I love the fact that I never shared physical intimacy with anyone else sans my husband.
Agreed that marrying on “feelings” alone is unreliable.
To be brutally honest, that’s just about sexual chemistry.
That’s not a foundation for a marriage.
Common goals, the ability to communicate, dating intellectually rather than emotionally IS the difference.
I didn’t love my husband when we got engaged.
I liked him tremendously and knew that he was perfect for me.
The love developed when we were in the middle of our engagement and continued to bloom and grow stronger when we got married.
Judaism nurtures the physical intimacy and emotional and intellectual intimacy.
I really pray that Rabbi Lapin NEVER spoke in a Church, but in a building owned by a Church that doesn’t have any Church symbols.
It really perturbs me when he makes the statement of speaking in Churches.
As I have stated before there is no situation WHATSOEVER where that would EVER, and I DO mean EVER, be allowed.
I think we know which religion in particular made the pentagram in to a symbol of evil.
Like I said about the church situation, I have no idea what that is about, and never got any warm and fuzzy feeling myself being around them, let alone ever in one. Even if it was just to drop off my ballot because a my local polling station was there, let alone being in one because of a wedding or funeral.
Needless to say, I am not interested in their services. I got a real dose of “Christian love” back in 2020 when I drove a good friend to her sisters church for an Easter service, and how I was treated because I wouldn’t wear a face diaper.
I told you the story. The pastor tried to apologize to me, but I wouldn’t accept his half-assed apology. Instead, I compare him to Neville Chamberlain. Needless to say I haven’t been invited back. LOL
One the one hand, when he talks about finance and marriage, there is a part of me that cringes a little. And not because of what he is saying, as it is how what he is saying, which is true, really points to the evil of the globalist agenda, and how it ruins lives in many regards. It’s death by a thousand cuts.
Basically, when they demanded I be a lab rat “for the greater good”, and I rightfully told them to take their jab and shove it, I was not only robbed of an income, I also had my value as a man robbed from me as well. May they rot in Hell.
That ties perfectly in to what a nutjob Erlich was. And sadly, there are “people of faith” who believe that, and all the other climate change nonsense. And I think we know which particular religion those idiots belong to. There’s more than a few “mega-churches” where the pastor speaks that nonsense.
Those would be the same Christians who would try to tell me after what was done to me by the globalist scum, that I should forgive “because Jesus forgave us.” Forgave us for what? And to which I would also tell them that right now, more than likely, their silly little man god isn’t where they think he is, and hopefully soon enough, they will be joining him and Paul there.
I don’t have any warm and fuzzy feelings when I pass by a church.
My stomach turns over.
YES! I remember that story.
Great analogy about the globalist agenda being a death from a thousand cuts.
It destroyed and continues to destroy so many!
‘Basically, when they demanded I be a lab rat “for the greater good”, and I rightfully told them to take their jab and shove it, I was not only robbed of an income, I also had my value as a man robbed from me as well. May they rot in Hell.”
AMEN AND AMEN! 👆
The pastors talk about Climate Change?! Oh, the insanity of it. It’s absolutely mind-blowing. 😱😱😱
“Those would be the same Christians who would try to tell me after what was done to me by the globalist scum, that I should forgive “because Jesus forgave us.” Forgave us for what?”
Yup. That would be the Modus Operandi because they’re from the same genre.
“more than likely, their silly little man god isn’t where they think he is, and hopefully soon enough, they will be joining him and Paul there.”
I GUARANTEE you that he’s not where they think he is.
I’ll share that information off of the blog.
I am pretty sure I more than violated the TOU of the blog with the statement I made that you were responding to, but all the gaslighting has really taken it’s toll. I am at a point were screaming at these people and cursing them out isn’t enough. I want to put my fist in some people’s faces, and repeatedly slam a car door on their heads.
Oh yeah there are pastors who push that climate change garbage. There were a few that came out during the Trump years. I’ll see if I can track down the article. Of course the fake news used this gaggle of tards to make the case that evangelicals in general were turning against Trump, which was not at all the case.
Yet another example of how they love to gaslight us to divide and conquer.
A fairly well-known name I could throw out of a pastor pushing that nonsense is a guy out of Southern California, Rick Warren, who runs a mega-church called “Saddle back”, and was best known in Christian circles for writing a self-help book called “The Purpose Driven Life.”
I really feel for you.
You’re in a much tougher situation because there are very few normal people where you are domiciled.
(Check your texts.
I sent you the information.)
I wonder how much money these pastors were paid to shill for the religion of Climate Change.
It’s utterly sickening.
“A fairly well-known name I could throw out of a pastor pushing that nonsense is a guy out of Southern California, Rick Warren, who runs a mega-church called “Saddle back”, and was best known in Christian circles for writing a self-help book called “The Purpose Driven Life.””
The name doesn’t sound familiar, but there are so many that exist.
It’s almost impossible to keep track of them all.
This is so very psychotic and deranged.
Funny enough, most of these mega-churches and televangelists do not operate out of the “bible belt” as many would suspect. Most of them operate in Los Angeles and, if you can believe it, Las Vegas.
We truly do live in a clown world.
Where I am is not a good place at all. Speaking of… On my most recent walk with Carolyn, she let one of our neighbors have it. The woman was out walking her dog, and Carolyn, being nice say hi and compliments her dog, only to get a cold blank stare form the owner.
So as we move on, Carolyn says; Such a lovely dog”, and then shouts “EVEN IF HIS MOMMY IS ON THE ASPERGER’S SPECTRUM.” LOL
O.M.G.! We most definitely live in Clown World!
Carolyn is FANTASTIC! LOLOLOL!
We certainly do.
I got another Marty story for you, I just heard yesterday from his trip to NYC.
Some of the friends he went out to dinner with one night, were friends of his from college. One was this girl who liked him, but she was too liberal for him, and she ended up marrying this snowflake who was way more liberal than she was.
While they were out, Marty noticed a trans person, and pointed it out; “OMG. Dude looks like a lady.” “That’s a tranny.” The liberal girl’s husband got mad, and said “you don’t have to point it out. That’s a person”. Marty says, “yeah, that’s a person who is a tranny.”
After a little back and forth, the guy mentioned that his son was trans. So Marty responded as if he said that his son has a stroke; “Aw, man… That sucks. Sorry to hear that. I hope he gets better.” The best part was how the rest of the group was on Marty’s side. LOL
Marty is absolutely AWESOME!
Please don’t choke yourself laughing. From the BBC :-
Tory Party Chairman Nadhim Zahawi says an error in his tax affairs was accepted by HMRC as having been “careless and not deliberate”.
In a statement, he said he wanted to address “confusion about my finances”
after claims he tried to avoid tax and had to pay it back.
He said he had chosen to “settle the matter and pay what they said was due, which was the right thing to do”.
Labour has called for the former chancellor to be sacked.
According to the Guardian, Mr Zahawi had to pay back tax he owed with a 30% penalty and the total amounts to £4.8m.
[He accidentally forgot to declare that he owed four million pounds tax]
While trying to get the House of Representatives to raise the debt ceiling, the Bidet regime wants to send Ukraine another $2,500,000,000.00 of money BORROWED in OUR NAME.
This makes about as much sense as a family that is going bankrupt ,borrowing money to give to someone that lives 20 miles away.
It’s not real money, is it ? I mean, who would lend money to a bankrupt country ?
The people that want to own it for a cheap price; we even give “foreign aid” to the country that lends us the most money.
Even in my FB circles – where I just posted this – no one has a clue about what’s transpired in the last couple of year…. very sad.
Our world is being PUSHED DOWNHILL fast.
I actually saw a Freedom Toons cartoon about this trying to parody it. I have a gallows sense of humor, and even I am unable to poke fun at what Trudy’s government is doing to people who are depressed. It actually makes me see red. And most likely, those poor people are depressed because of his government which tells you how humanitarian they are, while they themselves show all the compassion of a school of piranhas.
Oh, but we are told it is the liberals who have morals.
Will a plan to give $5 million to every black person n San Francisco be redress for years of suffering…or woke posturing
that stokes race hate and bankrupts the US?
[A long ‘un, but some good comments][Daily Mail]
P.S. I want compensation for hundreds of years of anti-semitiism.
Only 100 years? Why not the full 2000?
I said hundreds !!
That would be more like “Millennia.”
Far more than 2,000 years.
It started in earnest, in Mitzrayim (Egypt). Titus wasn’t original.
Speaking of Mitzrayim, I read a mind-blowing Devar Torah on Shabbos from Rabbi Avigdor Miller ZTL regarding remembering what occurred in Mitzrayim and why Jews are supposed to remember the miracles of the Exodus daily.
I’ll try to post it ASAP, Be’Ezras Hashem.
That would be an unconstitutional plan and quite frankly a racist law. It is nothing but stealing from one and giving to anohter.
Cloward-piven at work.
Ok that’s me. 🙂
HaHaHa! Cats Rock!
Note; Not literally mine, but the author’s first article.
Interesting. Reflects to a large extent my cynical thoughts over here during the lockdowns.
The whole situation was more than enough to nurture anyone’s cynicism, and exacerbate it.
Curious – that for some of us, we knew from the start is was a stink show. All one had to do was look up what a corna virus is – common cold/flu and even if it’s the worst flu of the century – it’s still not a pandemic.
Correct. It is nothing more than a virulent strain of the common cold/flu with a scary name attached to it. I did not know what to make of the virus at first. I remember the cruise ship that was quarantined early on and then the passengers were brought to a nearby air force base. That ship was brought to the Port of Oakland which is just minutes away from me.
I honestly wasn’t too worried about that, if even at all.
The scariest part of it all to me was in mid March when the Shelter In Place order was issued in the City of San Francisco in mid March — which was the first in the US to lock down, and the rest of the state followed suit within hours. Interestingly enough, restaurants got real quiet even days before the lockdowns began.
The power the government exercised with Shelter In Place orders, Curfews, and other restrictions like social distancing, and later masking, was, to me at least, far scarier than any virus even if the virus really was deadlier than the Bubonic Plague of the Middle Ages.
My biggest fear was that once that power was gained, it would never be relinquished. And also shutting down the economy was a good way for them to try to get rid of Trump, which I, deep down, suspected was a major factor at play all along, as the dems were in full panic mode before COVID over the prospect of Trump easily winning a second term.
All I saw was Communism. And yes, I would much sooner suffer a very painful disease, and even die a painful death from it than live under Communism.
Amen on that WT.
“The power the government exercised with Shelter In Place orders, Curfews, and other restrictions like social distancing, and later masking, was, to me at least, far scarier than any virus…”
As soon as we were told to lock down, I knew that Covid was the Trojan Horse for Marxism.
“It is nothing more than a virulent strain of the common cold/flu with a scary name attached to it.”
I know of many who suffered terribly from Covid.
That includes myself.
I lost my mother’s first cousin who was like an uncle to me.
He had ZERO pre-existing health conditions.
I know of quite a few people in NYC who died from Covid.
I wasn’t afraid of dying.
(I didn’t believe that after surviving situations where I escaped imminent death seven times that Hashem would kill me from a virus that 99% of the world survives.
I had the Delta Variant.
It was extremely miserable.
For six and a half months, I thought I would lose my mind.
That being said, I had zero regrets for not being jabbed.
Breathing isn’t overrated.
BH, I haven’t had the flu in several years.
As rotten as it is, it lasts for a few days and is over.
Not so with Covid.
I know of people who had no pre-existing health conditions who suffered terribly from Covid.
Indeed, there are those like @Sapper9:disqus who had a very mild case, BH.
However, what sets this crazy virus apart, is that everyone reacts differently to it.
That’s what my Covid doctor said.
That being said, I wouldn’t want to ever surrender my freedom either.
Most of the cases I know of where pretty mild. Lasted roughly a week. My mom is sure she got it back in late 2019, and was really sick for two weeks. Obviously, it had a worse affect on some than others.
Regarding your closing statement, that is correct. I do not know of a sick person, unless they were truly evil, who would want to make the healthy suffer. A normal person who is sick just wants to do what they have to in order to get better. If that means staying home and convalescing, they will do just that.
Shutting down society would actually be the worst thing for them. Just as we saw how many people missed cancer screenings and other treatments during lockdown because COVID was given so much priority.
Throw in the panic buying, and bare shelves, it is now harder for loved ones to get what the sick person needs.
“Obviously, it had a worse affect on some than others.”
Correct. Covid reacted differently depending on each individual. That’s what made it such a crazy virus.
“I do not know of a sick person, unless they were truly evil, who would want to make the healthy suffer.”
Only a very evil and sadistic person would do such a thing.
Yup. People became anxiety ridden, depressed, suicidal, and missed very important screenings as a result of the lockdowns.
It was very destructive in all aspects.
As soon as they told us to lock down, I knew that Covid was the Trojan Horse for Marxism.
Just finished the other Rabbi Lapin video.
I’m going to listen to this one, as soon as possible, Be’Ezras Hashem.
I’ll let you know my thoughts on this video as well.
I really appreciate you sharing these videos.
Gladly. I just responded to your thoughts below.
Going to check it out now…
Good afternoon! 😊😊😊
Here are my thoughts: Firstly, I immediately thought of Mishnah Avos and Koheles (Ecclesiastes) before Rabbi Lapin started to talk about it.
I concur absolutely that women feel their biological time clock much more acutely than men. Our “expiration date” to have children is far less than a man’s ability to father children.
I love how he mocks wokeness, labels, and snowflakes overall!
When preparing and writing a Memorandum of Law, one needs to cite case law. One doesn’t get to first base with trying to win on appealing to an emotional aspect of a case. That’s madness.
Yes! Age matters.
It makes a difference in how and what we are able to accomplish.
Good grief! I never knew about a sex robot. Rabbi Lapin is correct about the spirituality of the sexual relationship. It most definitely NOT isn’t just physical.
A sex robot wouldn’t address the giving and receiving aspect as well.
Mishnah Avos talks about what is appropriate for every age. It lists it in detail. Remember, all wisdom is to be found in Torah. It contains all of the secrets of the universe.
I want to address something that Rabbi Lapin didn’t mention. If you want to really understand on depth what the verses in both Koheles and Avos mean, one needs to learn them with the holy commentaries.
Without doing so, the depth and breadth of the message of the verses is partially lost and misunderstood.
He is so very spot on as well regarding how he advises men and women to conduct themselves both in their behavior and professions.
That’s a blueprint of how Orthodox Jews comport themselves. These things really matter.
TANACH and the Oral Torah are divine.
When we heed its wisdom, our chances of success are that much greater.
This lecture was SPECTACULAR.
I highly recommend it to everyone (along with the others that you posted).
I got interrupted in the middle of listening to it twice..🤦
I’m very grateful that you posted it.
One thing I would add to what he said in regards to the woman being a receiver, I would argue she is also a giver.
Here’s what a mean. Biology = the woman receives the seed, and gives the man a child, creating a family. The man provides the shelter, the woman makes it a home.
Unfortunately, sex robots are real, and were introduced circa 2015/16. I read my fair share of articles about them as they were being discussed heavily. Honestly, it was so stomach turning.
Although I can sympathize with how soul crushing loneliness is, and how many of us men are being phased out and dehumanized, my sympathy starts to erode for a person when they go to that length. They empower the powers that aught not be by playing the loser roll they were assigned. By default, that is accepting the role “they” assigned to many of us, and not what god made them for.
They become part of the problem, and by default, helped make our lives harder as a result..
That also points to something else he mentioned I would have liked for him to have touched on further, especially when he was mocking the woke, and the excuses that they make. And that is that those who claim they can’t get ahead because of “systemic racism”, are actually the ones that created a systemically racist system, and of course benefit tremendously from it themselves, while someone who looks like me gets kicked in the face by it.
Oh, but if I dare point that out, I get lectured and ridiculed as they should have been.
I truly do resent our society.
YES! The women is very much a giver. She’s the nucleus of the household and in giving, via nurturing and caring for her children and taking care of her husband.
I meant to address this.
I’m so very grateful that you highlighted this.
“The man provides the shelter, the woman makes it a home.”
I LOVE how you phrased that!
“my sympathy starts to erode for a person when they go to that length. They empower the powers that aught not be by playing the loser roll they were assigned. By default, that is accepting the role “they” assigned to many of us, and not what god made them for.
They become part of the problem, and by default, helped make our lives harder as a result..”
“those who claim they can’t get ahead because of “systemic racism”, are actually the ones that created a systemically racist system, and of course benefit tremendously from it themselves, while someone who looks like me gets kicked in the face by it.”
You are correct. He didn’t address it enough. Agreed, these people compound the problem exponentially.
It’s beyond sick that speaking the truth makes one ridiculed.
In fact, it’s absolutely evil.
As the world marks liberation of the Nazi concentration camps… LORD ASHCROFT recalls the forgotten heroine of the
Holocaust who smuggled 2,500 ghetto children to safety in coffins, suitcases… and even a toolbox
“Her courage must never be forgotten. Yet she always insisted her actions were not heroic, saying: ‘Heroes do extraordinary things. What I did was not an extraordinary thing. It was normal. I could have done more. This regret will follow me to my death.'”
Heroes never believe that they do enough.
What she did, was extraordinary.
TYMK for posting this.
I found out about Irena Sendler several years ago.
This article is an excellent tribute to her.
If I remember correctly, she was officially recognized by Israel as “The Righteous Among Nations” when the research and essay of the four high school students on her life story went public, and the plays “Life in a Jar” which were performed nationwide in the USSA, drew even more attention to her.
May her memory be blessed.
What a beautiful picture of an extremely special soul! 💞💞💞
(I’ve seen it before, but it never ceases to touch me…)
Good morning/afternoon everyone!
Shavuah Tov, in the best of health always.
I’m going to be here in spurts today and tomorrow.
I will Be’Ezras Hashem catch up on my notification and read as much as humanly possible.
My little brother was shot and buried alive’: Janine Webber reveals the horrors she endured as a child during the Second
World War. Now aged 90, she tells her story to mark Holocaust Memorial Day
May Hashem bless Janine Webber and her family.
What an incredible testimony to tenacity.
Her being able to walk again, is absolutely incredible.
It’s beyond heartbreaking how she lost every single member of her family.
BH, her nightmares stopped when she shared her story.
May the memories of everyone murdered be blessed.
May Edek’s memory be blessed as well.
Hashem is rewarding him in a manner that no human can begin to comprehend.
TYMK for sharing this article.
All I expect from this administration is another set of lies’: Trump nd Cruz lead Republicans blasting Biden after DOJ seizes SIX more

This is a nice piece about a past statement BIDET made against Carter’s nominee to the CIA over mishandling classified documents.
Did Bidet say that he takes classified material seriously, or that he takes classified documents , seriously?
If Bidet* told me that the sun is going to shine, I would take an umbrella.
He has been a serial liar for years.

Chatbot App Teaches Kids Nazis Didn’t Hate Jews
Historians have slammed an iPhone app that lets users ‘talk’ to famous figures from the past – but claims Nazi Joseph Goebbels did not hate Jewish people.
Historical Figures Chat, which was released on Apple’s App Store earlier this month, uses artificial intelligence to generate answers to users’ questions.
Goebbels’s answer claims the Nazi propaganda minister ‘did not hate Jews’, whilst the reply for Adolf Eichmann, one of the key organisers of the Holocaust, expresses ‘sincere regret and remorse’ for his actions.
Historians took to Twitter to slam the app, with one calling on Apple to ‘remove this trash from the App Store’ and another expert saying it cannot ‘go anywhere near a classroom’.

An estimated 110,000 Israelis turned out to two rallies in Tel Aviv on Saturday to protest a proposed reform to the justice system. This is the third such event in the coastal city in as many weeks. Thousands more rallied in Haifa, Jerusalem and Beersheba.
Politicians addressing protesters in Tel Aviv included opposition leader and former prime minister Yair Lapid and Benny Gantz, a former defense minister and alternate prime minister.
Gantz said that “we encourage the protest and see it as backing for our political activity at the various levels. We can argue about many things, just not about Israeli democracy. We are ready to reach agreements on the reform, but that does not mean that we will compromise on democracy. There will be no compromise on democracy, the rule of law and a strong and independent judiciary.”

New – Two Palestinians arrested with knives in Israel, near Modi’in
Israel’s police announced earlier on Sunday that a stabbing attack was thwarted on Saturday in Jerusalem’s Old City
Two Palestinians were arrested with knives on Sunday at Israel’s Shilat junction, near the central city of Modi’in.
This all comes amid tensions boiling over in the West Bank, with Israel conducting its ongoing counterterrorism operation “Break the Wave,” in response to a series of terrorist attacks that killed multiple people in 2022.
The military operation has seen more than 2,500 Palestinians arrested in the near-nightly raids it conducts, along with 171 Palestinians left dead in 2022 and another 18 since the start of 2023.

Now they are implying that a “stroke season” after flu season is normal
They would say that the moon is made out of green cheese in complete earnestness, to desperately cover up their agenda and the fallout.

ROFL – thats a good one!!
It’s been a long time! 😉☺️
I’m so very happy to see you back.
You were extremely missed! 🥰🥰🥰
I have alot of reading and notifications to catch up on.
Chances are, I won’t get to it until tomorrow evening or Tuesday because I have three appointments tomorrow.
It makes my heart smile seeing you.
Have a good night and sweet dreams!

Your not in a real fight if fair has meaning.
A fair fight is one that I win
I really like that!
The deep state wants Bidet gone!
He was always just a placeholder.
They couldn’t ditch him until they controlled the senate, and now they do.
They will use this to question his eligibility for office , ditch him, then use the same attack on President Trump to keep him from running, bury the laptop story and try to assume the moral high ground.
They also have to lose kamala, but, that is another story.
That’s what I said as soon as this started “mysteriously” coming out of the woodwork.
They ain’t the only ones
Shavuah Tov Chief!
Amen to that.
(They’re not going to have Harris run either, if they have any smidgen of intelligence.)
Dumbacraps and intelligence – definitely an oxymoron
For the most part.
Some of their leadership, were very wily and shrewd.
Not as of late, but I would say that Pelosi was a prime example. Harry Reid was another such example, off of my cuff.
Obviously not, I can’t think of a Bidet supporter here.
FYI for all our gentlemen.
Ain’t that the truth
The son of the Democrat house minority whip was arrested for assaulting a police officer at a Boston ANTIFA riot, and he is a really weird looking one.
She should be charged with him.
The Congress critter calls IT her, so I guess it is a TRANSVESTITE.
Not surprising. Too bad being a rotten parent doesn’t result in the death penalty.
Since he is the son of a Democrat, he will have the charges dropped , or reduced to a parking ticket.
Dems raise the most obnoxious kids – likely by design.
“Dems raise the most obnoxious kids – likely by design.” – Yup, Genetic Garbage! LOL
Guess she has already shown she is a fanatic with zero common sense. She is a total fruit cake
And let me tell you what it means to me coming in as a different generation,” she continued. “I remember my middle child waking up with nightmares over concern around climate change. I’ve had my family at a movie theater, when the movie stopped, my children immediately felt there must be a shooter in the theater with us.”
Former Trump White House senior adviser Stephen Miller responded to the tweet by saying, “The only way this could happen to a child is if the parents made it so.”
I remember when the son of Hillary’s 2016 running mate was arrested for political violence, I will have to research what came of that; however, I suspect the charges were dropped.
He was another ANTIFA slug.
They don’t raise their children the system does.
It has to be very purposeful, because they’re all leeches.
Tomorrow is PCM’s birthday! So I’d like to be the first to wish you Happy Birthday Rebecca and may you have many more in good health and high spirits! 🙂 https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b1208c49d93fa70ec17888fa67b01d2316a7c7d717399467de5b5fb2df1661b3.jpg
This is a picture my husband took, I still love it.
I was just logging off when I saw this.
You’re so very sweet. 💓💓💓
I LOVE the picture.
Catching up with you was an early birthday present.
Have a great night, dear Filter! 🤗😘
We know that you are only around 30 , so i will wish you to have many more birthdays to come.
Good evening Sapper9!
Which anniversary of that particular birthday? LOL
Very well met! LOL!
Hey, I now I got to get someone else in trouble. LOL
You have a tremendous knack for that which includes inspiring Bill 🙃, getting Libs to combust, among many other gifts.
One cannot ever be bored around you. 😃😃😃
That’s always good to know and hear.
Carolyn always tells me that I make her laugh with my commentary. My specialty seems to be pointing out the absurd.
You know that I am a very straight shooter.
I wouldn’t say it if I didn’t believe it to be true.
I agree with Carolyn.
She’s very spot on (as usual).
I wish she would join us.
Please feel free to screenshot this and show it to her.
As a personal touch from myself: Carolyn, you sound fabulous on many levels.
Don’t worry about being able to keep up with everyone on the blog.
If you are able to keep up with WT,
you can keep up with all of us.
I really hope to see you.
Happy Birthday to PCM.
WT, May I get your email when you have a chance – I can get it from PCM so that’s it’s not displayed here?
Yes, Absolutely. She has my permission. I will send her a message right away.
Thank you! Much appreciated.
Got it and thanks again WT.
Good evening Filter! 💞💞💞
I’ll send it to you right now.
thank you – perfect!
You’re very welcome always!
LOL and a maga baby in bloomers!! Hi Bill – happy to be back and getting my spirits regenerated here.
Thanks for the email.
You are a true friend.
Hi Filter, that’s awesome, you rock!!!
Got back on twitter too! @SparksLane1 🙂
I haven’t been on Twitter the past few days.
I went on to follow you.
My Twitter name is Chai.
@nicetomeetyou2:disqus set up my account for me. In 2014, I never completed the job.
I learned a bit since then.
I followed back and RT’d some of your tweets.
I’m immensely enjoying being able to speak the truth like trans’women’ are not women, they are men – failed men with fetishes that they take out on real woman and children.
I cannot wait to reciprocate when I return to Twitter.
I just haven’t been able to manage doing both with all of the craziness.
I have a few wonderful people that you’ll really like as well that I follow.
I cannot recollect their handles off of the cuff.
Regarding Frank Columbo, he gave me a whole listing of his medical credentials, yet proudly boasted that he got vaxxed FIVE times.
He unfollowed me when I told him that I am a Reaganite Conservative and salute freedom.
He can do whatever he wants.
I refuse to ever be a test subject.
He might have also muted me.
Politically, he’s a Conservative, so he says.
He has no issues with mandatory vaccinations for everyone.
I thought I would give you fair warning.
He’s a real Branch Covidian, to borrow @dr_darko:disqus’s terminology.
Ah thank you! I’ll keep an eye out for that one.
You’re very welcome.
Friends look out for each other…
I was really thrown for a loop because he never sounded remotely ludicrous in any manner beforehand.
Apparently we had never read each other’s opinions about the jabs beforehand.
Like they say, the are willingly ignorant. What can one do, but pity them like a fallen prince.
What was so ludicrous, was that he was painting ME to be the ignorant one.
What are all of those alleged degrees worth (who says he really has them), if he has not a shred of common sense and the ability to apply logic and deductive reasoning?
I’ll take my medical “credentials” over his, any day of the week.
Book smart but no common sense.
I am so beyond thrilled that you’re back. 🥳🥳🥳
You were so very missed…
Thank you my friend! It feels good to be back. Like a big exhale. 🙂
It’s very therapeutic to be among very wonderful and like-minded people.
It’s a safe haven.
That’s huge for me.
Ben Samsara (not his real name), an awesome Noachide (for 10 years) with an insatiable appetite for Torah, sent this spectacular video to me.
I opine that you and @dr_darko:disqus (and perhaps a few others herein), will really appreciate it.
It’s about ten minutes long.
Ben is PHENOMENAL in every single manner.
He is on Twitter. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/44098e22d88f47e5a3f0db1f7af6fbf86838af32673f0f6fd8112dcf9e5a2efc.png
Good afternoon Bill!
Good grief and TYVM!
It could be worse. He could have replaced the flags with little multicolored bloomers. LOL
Oh, for crying out loud.
Don’t give him any more inspiration.
I cannot stop laughing for some bizarre reason…
Don’t even get us going!! LOL
Bill never needs any encouragement.
He’s very creative all on his own. 🙈🙉🙊😁😁😁
PCM told me that the word “incorrigible” is an understatement in my case, and that a new word has to be invented just for me.
Yes, I did!
Oops nothing! 😂😂😂
You know exactly what you are doing.
My legal counsel has prepared the following statement. LOL
You’re totally innocent, of course.
Exactly. Just like OJ. Oh, wait….
That’s a great analogy! LOL!
If the bloomers don’t fit, you must acquit.
LOL and she’ll come up with one, just wait.
Please feel free to give me any and all ideas. LOL!
I hope it’s a cool one. If I ever get serious about DJ’ing, I can use it as my pseudonym. Or maybe a sock puppet account. LOL
The pressure is on.
Oh no! 😄😄😄
Perhaps we should have a contest where everyone can submit their own ideas as well.
I wonder if it would be as successful as the NPC Tard of The Year contest I held on W3P? LOL
Who won that contest by the way?
Was it Jerry?
YES! I’m putting you in charge of making a spreadsheet if we need one.
Off of the cuff, I would also describe you as a firecracker.
You’re also the incorrigible and unapologetic verbal destroyer of all snowflakes and antisemites alike.
(As a sidebar, you’re an expert in the art of getting people to dance to the tune of your choice. Bill is a classic example.)
Ok now I’m jealous WT never danced me!! LOL
Jerry won by a nose hair. LOL
Since you put it that way, a good pseudonym for me might be Machiavelli. LOL
This is true!
Ooooh, good idea!
I accept no responsibility for this. LOL
Now you did it!!
You betcha! LOL!
Happy Birthday, Rivka. You are a Faithful Servant of the Most High. G-d Bless You.
Good afternoon Diaspora! 😊😊😊
That’s so very beautiful!
You’re exceedingly kind
First, IT is not a she, it’s a he. And NO, it is not human. May it rot in Hell for all eternity. I don’t give a damn what its excuses are.
Happy Birthday, Rivka!
Good evening John!
It’s been an incredible day on so many levels.
Hashem is exceedingly kind…
If it looks like a mafia family, acts like a mafia family, talks like a mafia family , it is a mafia family, and the fib and DOJ are running cover for them, but, I think exposing the classified documents is a scam to distract from investigations.
May your birthday be exceptional Rivka (that is also my eldest daughter’s first name)
Good evening Chief!
That is very kind of you.
I never knew that about your oldest daughter.
I commend you on your taste in names. 😉☺️
You’ll get no argument from me.
She is the strongest argument for corporal punishment.
He thinks that be enough money to buy him off for now. sic
Mera-Fakebook has removed Ukraine’s Nazi Azov regiment from the dangerous organizations list.
And the irony is, when this whole thing started, they actually tried to compare Ukraine to Poland in the 1930s, and Russia to Germany. That narrative didn’t age well, did it?
Happy Birthday, Rivka !
From Tony and XoXo and Zavvi
Wishing you a great year ahead.
Good evening Tony!
That is very gracious of you all.
This agent of the FIB worked on the Trump/Russia hoax and now has been busted for working with a
Russian oligarch.. hmmmm
The progressive radicals are using tactics similar to what they used against Trump.
The Trumping of Benjamin Netanyahu
Happy Birthday PCM.
Today is the anniversary of the day that God decided the world could no longer do without you.
Good afternoon WT!
That is one of the nicest things that has been said to me.
Well, it’s true.
I hope you are having a good day.
It was a rainy day, but the sun was shining in every way that counted.
(Stay with me on this. 😊😊😊
I feel like I am sounding like “The Walrus and the Carpenter.”)
Up until twenty minutes ago, my pain level was almost non-existent.
That’s extremely rare on such a day.
I made it to choir and was able to sing again.
(That always makes me very happy.)
I got the nicest and most moving message from my youngest son along with a bouquet of flowers.
It was one of the most beautiful cards I have ever received in a very long time.
He wrote me a poignantly stunning letter.
He thanked me for the big things and little things. Little things, are never really little.
One doesn’t expect such a detailed and loving letter of appreciation from a child.
(He was always exceptional and thoughtful.)
From my other children and family members, I had lovely messages.
His stood out in a class by itself.
(My mother’s did as well. She marvelled at what I survived and that I am still here.)
I want you all to know that I am so beyond moved by all of the extremely gracious and kind wishes from all of you.
I’m totally blown away.
I was just think The Walrus And The Carpenter as I started reading. GTMA.
That is so great that you had such a good day. Especially to get that lovely card, knowing what a positive impact you had.
It’s wonderful to have a positive impact with every “client” that I work with.
It’s priceless when the feedback comes from one’s own immediate family.
My oldest son was very speech delayed. I fought the Board of Education (and won — thank you HASHEM).
I worked very hard with him.
When he was about 20, he called me from Bais Midrash (Talmudic College) to check in with me and see how I was feeling.
He told me out of nowhere, that he wanted me to know that he is very cognizant of everything that I did for him.
He added that everything that he is, was because of me.
One never does anything for their children to receive a bunch of accolades.
That being said, there are some from one’s children (and spouse) that one never ever forgets.
At the end of the day, being a positive impact on my family, is the greatest gift of all…
A parent does what they do for their children because they love them.
So when a child recognizes what you do for them, they are saying that they know how much you love them, and how appreciative they are of it. It’s a fulfillment.
That’s so very magnificently stated and true.
I concur absolutely.
What a wonderful son – he’s a decent man already.
He really is.
He always has been extremely thoughtful and giving.
I am very blessed that all of my children are wonderful (I receive that feedback regularly).
Every now and again, I get blown away by them.
I took a picture of the flowers that he gave me. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/85ed7659eb0e93863db9786ded1b78c34c64e58bd06ee6dbac762ff1dfa61751.jpg
Very beautiful! What kind of flower are they?
I wish I knew…
They are red ones.
It’s more like a deep maroon or burgundy color.
LOLOL ah gee thanks Tory!!
More classified documents have been found in Bidet’s possession . they even date back to the time he was in the Senate.
And there are 100s of thousands of those documents that he stole and gave to his university. Bet the number of classified documents are in the thousands
I’ just going to leave this here. LOL
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.
This is why I still with I was an American. We have NO rights from gov’s heavy hand on our lives here.
Twinkle Toes Trudy only further proves he’s Fidel Castro’s illegitimte son.
When he froze the bank accounts of the freedom convey, he may as well have just grown the little mustache.
Exactly. And Canadians are far too compliant to get this turd out of office…. I just shake my head.
Even the Chinese started fighting back in the their country. And they got more to lose.
Absolutely. I am actually very pleasantly surprised to see that.
I am actually amazed, but on the other hand, they also have nothing left to lose. The CCP pushed too hard.
That’s an excellent point.
They have nothing left to lose.
The Chinese people have been treated worse than animals.
Interesting fact; when COVID was unleashed, and they started to invade Hong Kong, their housing market was about ready to collapse and take their economy down with it.
The people there truly have nothing.
I never knew that.
Very much appreciate the information, as always.
It’s a very awful situation. I don’t know if you are familiar with the “ghost cities” in China, which are these mega centrally planned projects, most of which are empty and remain only partially completed.
Basically, you have people paying mortgages on these places that they can’t even move in to, and the government perpetrated this fraud with the lenders. So many Chinese citizens have lost nearly their entire life savings over this.
I never knew about the existence of these ghost cities either.
I feel so very “unedumacated.”
They hide it from us; you really have to be eyes on everything to keep up on them. I’ve seen videos of the cities that sit empty – skyscrapers everywhere but not a soul around and you can see the places are empty.. it’s weird.
I have watched some Urban Exploration videos about those places. It is really eerie. They had to demolish quite a few of them.
Good evening Filter! 🥰🥰🥰
Two days in a row! 🥳🥳🥳
I hope you will be a regular again.
It really wasn’t remotely the same without you!
One needs to dig very deeply into their ugly closet full of skeletons.
I wonder why they want to keep these buildings empty.
Is it to have a more concentrated population that would be easier to control?
But in that case, I don’t understand why they wasted money having these cities built at all.
I follow China pretty close, or as close as I can. Epoch Times, and Epoch TV are pretty good sources for that.
The show Marty and I watch, American Thought Leaders, talks a lot about China, and so does Crossroads with Joshua Phillip, and the NTD News show, China In Focus. NTD is an affiliate of Epoch Times.
Also, back in the day I used to listen to the John Batchelor Radio Show, and he talked a lot about it. One of his regular guests was Gordon Chang, who is a well known China expert.
Good morning WT!
It’s always wonderful to see you.
I was really out of the detailed news loop for a long time because of health issues (I had this situation for practically two years straight. I was a zombie and half dead for a year after my abdominal surgery, fractured ribs and damaged hands, Covid, and six months post terrible side effects.)
There were other hair raising adventures over the past 21 years. I knew alot of what was transpiring in the world. However, nowhere near the depths that you were following it.
When one’s life is hanging by a thread on and off, the news takes a back seat.
That’s just an explanation.
I’m very grateful for your sharing your expertise.
I appreciate that. It’s good to see you too.
To tell you the truth, I would love it if news could take a back seat in my life, but for different reasons. Like I am too busy enjoying life, spending time with friends and family to have the time to be so consumed by it.
Knowing God is listening, sometimes I feel as if though I need to clarify what I mean when I say certain things. Probably from too many years of hearing idiots describe God like the Jinn. Like when I say “please get me out of this place”, that he would, but send me somewhere even worse like Bakersfield to “teach me a lesson.”
That’s the god of Paul, of course, that most people know, not the god of Moses. The god of Paul is like that messed up kid that enjoys pulling the wings off of insects for fun before he starts shooting at cats, and then grows up to be just like Adam Schiff or Farty Pants Fartwell.
“To tell you the truth, I would love it if news could take a back seat in my life, but for different reasons. Like I am too busy enjoying life, spending time with friends and family to have the time to be so consumed by it.”
AMEN TO THAT!
I wish that for you as well.
CORRECT. The god of Paul is cruel and extremely vindictive.
Not so regarding Hashem whatsoever.
I love your analogy, by the way.
Hello PCM – sorry for late reply – got called away by phone calls from distressed family members again.
Good morning Filter! 💞💞💞
No apologies necessary, ever.
Boruch Hashem, we have lives to lead.
Our families should come first.
You did the right thing!
I’m so very sorry for your distressed family members.
I’m davening for you and your family.
May Hashem give everyone clarity, great health, and the ability to make the best decisions with clarity.
(I’m always davening for that for myself, my family, and all great people.)
Thank you PCM, I do appreciate it as I ‘daven’ for you all as well.
