      I wish I could be around to hear how scholars miss-interpret that 500 years from now. The covered face shows reverence to God, the covered face shows his stature in the class system, The covered face was self torture to atone for sins………..

    why would anyone want their kid other than homeschooled in today’s education system? send them to school to be taught to hate their country and be so dumbed down that they are sheep to be slaughtered

      We watched a few of the episodes from the Band of Brothers marathon this past weekend, OMG when they liberated one of the concentration camps. Very graphic and gut wretching these buttheads should be forced to watch and learn……about the real evil in the world, I could not turn away.

      These are the same morons who are claiming The Diary of Anne Frank was fiction.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Votermom – it’s why I needed Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist marathon too, we were waging our own Memorial Day battle for the remote all weekend 😀

      • elliesmom says:

        When I listened to the interview tapes I was given of my dad’s war experiences, I understood why he was always reluctant to talk about where he had been and the things he’d seen. He never talked about ever going back to Africa or Europe, but in the interview he wondered if returning to Germany and seeing it later would help get the old images out of his head. When I went through his things after he died, I found a huge Nazi flag with 3 bullet holes dead center. I don’t know how they got there, but he was a good shot. We gave the flag to a museum because none of us wanted to display it, and obviously neither did he. A childhood friend sent me a photo of the last of the WWII vets in my hometown raising the flag at the WWII memorial yesterday. I worry what will happen to our history when there’s no one alive to tell the truth.

    also importing from Russia. Is there any enemy of this country that bid-on and the benedicts won’t help?

    years ago if someone was lying, you would say that is a “just so” story. Today you could say that is a “CNN story” and people would know that is was a lie

      Excerpt:
      Clearly, this statement applies to Donald J. Trump who stands for the justice of Americanism, though the whole leftist world stands against him. Donald J. Trump should not face the enemies of democracy alone.

      Those Republicans who, although not strong NeverTrump politicos, but susceptible to the massive media campaign against Mr. Trump, would do well to consider, with a nod to F. Scott Fitzgerald, that he is much better than the whole lot of the Biden crowd, a crowd who makes messes for others to clean up. And those queasy Republicans should, by way of T.R.’s teaching, realize, at long last, that Donald J. Trump does not bow and scrape before his enemies but stands tall and valiant, and, as current exemplar of T.R.’s emphasis on the need of patriotism as the keystone of foreign policy, merits serious consideration for another run for the White House.

      • lyn5 says:

        Another quotation from T.R.’s address at the Sorbonne is also quite relevant in providing an accurate description of the true character of Donald J. Trump, an observation well-suited for our MAGA president:

        “We seriously and earnestly believe in peace; but if peace and justice conflict, we scorn the man who would not stand for justice though the whole world came in arms against him.”

        They have $1,000 million dollars. That’s $1B. It’s like someone w $1 million buying a $28,000 car. Remove 3 zeros. Same as if you have $1,000 and bought a $28 car.

        They don’t have high tax rates and people (like me) save up to give her our pennies so they got it like that.

    Democrats brought us back to the 70s.

    Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech said Monday the United States is re-living the violent decade of the 1970s as crime sweeps the nation’s major cities, coinciding with inflation and economic turmoil while terrorism remains a constant feature of American life.

    “Imagine a country in dire straits,” Domenech said as guest host of “Fox News Primetime.”

    “It’s a country,” Domenech added, “convulsed by riots, pitting police against protestors, ordinary citizens against activists… gripped nearly obsessed with issues of race and ethnicity… that just exited a long and grinding war as a loser… where a divisive Republican president is succeeded by a genial Democrat who promised healing but proves too inept to lead.”

      • Somebody says:

        Sure it’s possible, not probable, but possible. How is it possible? Massive fraud is exposed, Harris, Biden and the dems are shocked and overwhelmed with guilt 🤣 Stay with me, so Harris resigns and Biden names Trump as his new VP. Both houses of Congress still reeling from the shock of the fraud exposed, move swiftly to confirm Trump as VP🤣 Once Trump is sworn in, Biden gives a heart felt speech about voter integrity and doing the right thing, no matter how difficult or the personal price. Biden promptly resigns and VP Trump becomes POTUS.

        Pigs could fly, hell could freeze over, I could win the lottery. There are many things that are possible, but not probable.

        • Constance says:

          Nice! Call me a fool, it gives me hope.

          There hasn’t been a precedent for over turning a corrupted election, it will be fun finding out. 😀

          Saw the movie “Dave” over the weekend. Now that was a weird scenario of keeping a stroked out President hidden on life support while his look alike ran the country so his corrupt administration could keep corrupting. Ahhh, the magic of the movies. LOL.

    need to rant

    listening to the benedicts, they seem to think that black people are just not quite up to par. They can not make it on equal terms with other races what an insult.
    being a foster child, I remember the feeling of being a 2nd class citizen, just quite not good enough. I am not saying that for a poor pitiful me moment. I made a damn good life for my children and myself. It taught me to be strong and depend on myself. Listen to all the excuses they make about voting laws, it is always the same thing Blacks just can not meet expectations. what a bunch of horseshit. I have worked will all races and many black persons meet all qualifications and expectations and more. just my opinion

    end of rant

    • somebody says:

      I totally agree Helen. I know people of all races that are intelligent, driven and successful. I also know people of all races that are too stupid or lazy to get out of the rain.

      Same token, I know people that grew up poor that have risen above poverty and some trapped in victimhood mentality. I also know people that grew up wealthy that are successful in their own right and some that are sitting around waiting for mom or dad to kick off and barely getting by in the meantime.

      Preach it Sister !

    I’m getting my grocery delivery order ready for tomorrow. The first thing I always do is fill my “basket” with last week’s order. This time I took a look at what those items cost last week and compared it to this week. The identical items have increased 8% in one week. Eggs are scarce again. There are eggs available, but only the “premium” brands and sizes. I get my dog food from Chewy, but there’s a shortage of canned dog food at the grocery store. Tomatoes, which should be decreasing in price at this time of year, have almost doubled in price. I went looking for some pre-mixed seasoning for grilling a steak, and I found a lot of spices were out of stock. No trouble getting a delivery time slot, but I’m a little uneasy about where the supply chain is headed.

    • lyn5 says:

      Try this company if your regular ones are out of spices:

      https://mountainroseherbs.com/catalog/herbs-spices

      • elliesmom says:

        I usually order my spices from the Spice House, but I need $40 to get free shipping. In this case I only want one thing so putting it on my grocery list makes sense. They do have what I want, but lots of other things were out of stock with no substitutions. I will check out Mountain Rose before I order again. 🙂 I used to either order from or visit the shop for Penzey’s, but the owner said he no longer wanted my business so I started using his sister’s business. I don’t usually boycott a business over politics, but this was a bridge too far.

        • 1539days says:

          What the hell? Did he see a Trump sign in your yard or something?

          • elliesmom says:

            He sent a letter out to all of his customers telling us if we had voted for Trump or even thought about it, he no longer wanted our business. He and his sister had had a falling out several years before, and she had opened up her own business. She was happy to have anyone’s orders. I was happy to find her because the original recipes for the herb and spice blends belonged to their mother, and she is just as entitled to sell them as he is.

        • lyn5 says:

          Mountain Rose charges $7.99 for shipping. I padded my recent order with a coffee cup.

          • jadzia1971 says:

            I love Mountain Rose. I used to buy soapmaking supplies there back when I lived in Eugene.

        • Myiq2xu says:

          Do they have Posh Spice?

    • 1539days says:

      Where I work, most of the Operations group can’t seem to take a crap without some information from me, so I get pulled into a lot of supply chain discussions. China and domestic, things are bad, and they’re going to get worse. I’m hearing about issues going through 2022.

      “Full Measure” had a story about the circuit boards that are coming from China and the right to repair farm equipment, like John Deere for farmers. Think about this scenario. The US makes components, but there aren’t enough board houses to make the circuit boards, especially because of the board fabs. You need circuit boards to run most modern farm equipment (tractors, backhoes, loaders). Once those start breaking down, the circuit board shortage will lead to a food production shortage.

      We just went to Costco. Meat (beef, pork, bacon) are all more expensive than I ever remember.

    AZ audit update. Starting today they are going with 3 shifts! Usually they start at 8am, go until 1:30pm, take lunch and then a new shift of volunteers come on and work until 8pm. Now, I guess they will take a short break at 8 and continue on for another 6 hours with a new shift. Each shift seems to have about 300 volunteers. This is an amazing show of patriotism by AZ residents. They Have examined and counted more than half of the ballots. They originally intended to give hand counts for the Presidential and Senate races. Now they are hiring a firm to give a complete new count of every race based on the new scans they are making. So they must have found significant errors that they feel will make a difference in all races. They are not randomly picking which boxes of ballots to count next. They have been going to great effort to pull specific boxes and continue to do so. My guess is they have already counted the precincts they considered to be the most likely to be fraudulent. https://azaudit.org/
    Take a look so you can have a visual in your brain when the MSM starts pushing their bullshit about an unprofessional audit. Encourage anyone you know to have a quick look to place the real images in their mind. Camera 2, 4 and 6 show interesting views.

    • lateblum says:

      I really appreciate your monitoring and your summaries of this recount/audit. I have followed your links in the past. It was challenging to know what was going on. But I trusted your judgment on the process. I hope your interpretation of what has taken place in the audit is accurate and that this examination in AZ is just the beginning of major truth telling. And perhaps even changes.

    • Locked-N-Loaded says:

      Yes, thank you so much Constance for giving us updates!! I do watch the live feeds once in a while, but they can be very boring and tend to make me sleepy!!

    • Myiq2xu says:

      I haven’t been following the audit because I have a tendency to get emotionally invested and lately I keep getting my hopes raised and then crushed.

      Six months ago I was ready to go to war. I still find it hard to believe there wasn’t a real insurrection.

      • lyn5 says:

        We are better behaved until we are cornered.

      • elliesmom says:

        When I realize there’s no insurrection for me to support and join, and I no longer have the means and the ability to start one, I take this advice-

        “The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world.”
        ― Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn

        That I can do. I can refuse to take part in the lie.

    • Constance says:

      For some bizarre reason I find the data gathering fascinating. Glad to know you guys don’t think my reports are totally boring.
      Update. Pennsylvania had a delegation on the Audit floor observing today. I just logged on to see if they really are starting a third shift and they have 5 counting tables going and a bunch of people scanning and weighing. From what I can tell they seem to be really emphasizing scanning since last week. I did not see the two hostile observers from the secretary of states office today. They usually wear pink tops except the one guy who is some controversial Dem activist who wears a white Tshirt and always stands with his feet spread in a braced position.

      • Mothy67 says:

        Like the others I am very grateful for your updates. I can’t watch or delve too much into any of the ongoing challenges because it enrages me. I am cautiously hoping for justice, but cannot follow.

    I&I: “A Truly Fraudulent Presidency

    Obvious to all is that Biden is cognitively challenged, not the “sharp” alternative to the mad-tweeting Donald Trump. Biden needs a whisperer, someone to guide him through his foggy moments. He’s ended up though with someone who has taken him by the hand away from the middle and down the road to progressive disaster. Whether it’s Klain, First Lady Jill, or someone still unnamed is irrelevant.

    The point is the Biden presidency, if not his election, too, is a fraud, an exercise in stagecraft. Someone has his or her hand in his back and is projecting their voice so it will sound like his.

        That is so true, children typically don’t see skin color unless they bring prejudices from home but that is less and less these days. parents and grandparents today grew up in completely integrated schools, they work in integrated offices, most live in integrated neighborhoods. Stores, theaters, restaurants, all of society is integrated. People interact with all races, some more than others depending on where they live, but there is interaction daily. There are good people of every race and there are jack asses of every race and it has nothing to do with their skin tone.

    There’s more of the interview tomorrow. Dr. Peter McCullough explains that the US government feared COVID so much after the Obama Ebola debacle that they focused on keeping doctors and nurses safe while telling people with the virus to stay home until they were so sick that bad outcomes were almost guaranteed. He also points out it took until OCTOBER for recommendations on treatment that didn’t involve treating symptoms of respiratory failure. People were essentially told to stay home with COVID for two weeks without providing and preventative care.

    • Somebody says:

      To me the above is the biggest crisis of covid. The response of the medical community was and still is shocking to me. Our medical system has always been about early intervention, but not with covid. Telling people to stay home until they were having respiratory problems, completely cutting out front line family doctors and GP’s. Those people most familiar with their patients and most familiar with treating colds and flu.

      Yes, there were some doctors that stood up, bucked the system, but only a small minority and they were labeled kooks. It was shocking to me the sheeple in our medical community. The reaction to hydroxy chloroquine, inhaled busonocide, ivermectin, as well as zinc and vitamins. Are any of the above perfect? Of course not, nothing is 100%, not even Fauci’s vaccines. Completely demonizing and in some cases outlawing potential life saving drugs is something I thought I’d never see in this country. I thought more doctors would buck the system than did.

      Add to that the absolute halt or severe limiting of normal medical services, even for cancer patients. I’ve been a victim of that and may well pay with my life and it was and is all political. Just yesterday, one year, two and a half months since “15 days to slow the spread”, all chemo chairs were open. This is in Florida, we’re ahead of the curve. This is also applies to the smaller suburban clinics, I’m not sure if it applies to the larger downtown one next to the hospital. I know as of yesterday they began allowing a companion with chemo patients downtown, the other clinics allowed companions in mid-April, so who knows if downtown is fully open.

      Testing and imaging is still limited, the CDC revised what they said about surface contact months ago, but it doesn’t seem like the medical community got the memo. They limit patients because of their enhanced disinfection between patients and due to social distancing, another debunked theory.

      All of this severely crippled our medical system and we’ll never know the number of lives it cost, but my bet is far more than covid. If I hadn’t experienced this first hand, from big name premiere medical facilities I wouldn’t believe it. Honestly, I’d think people were exaggerating and people may think I am, but I assure you I’m not. I’ve already had a couple of meltdowns over all the covid bullshit, it’s quite the convenient excuse for massive delays. Yep give me some pre-meds in OR to relax me and my inner bitch jumps up on a soap box at the mention of “but covid”🤭

      Another thing I am suspicious of, I’m starting to notice signs of social justice in the medical community. I can’t prove it, but there have been several things lately that are a bit of a head scratcher. Things that depart from how it was explained to me patients are prioritized. Obviously I don’t have medical records and I’m not a doctor, but people talk, well some anyway. Meh, I can’t prove anything, but I’m highly suspicious…….just a few more weeks, just a few more weeks.
