Visual descriptions for our dear Zoe, and for anyone else who may find them helpful:

Header Image: Is a view of a lone Knight on a white horse, slowly approaching on a pathway leading to a gigantic Tree. The enormous Tree is the size of a skyscraper, with a gnarled trunk and huge branches. There is a rough hillside in front of the tree…so we cannot see the base of it. Some stone ruins are off to the side of the Tree.

In the distance are some other gigantic Trees, which give us an idea of the scale of the one that the Knight is approaching. It is a sunny day with blue sky overhead and there are fluffy white clouds in the distance.

Second Image: Is a set of arched doors that come to a pointed arch at the top. One of the doors is slightly ajar. There is ornate scrolled iron-work on the doors at their hinges, that covers quite a bit of each door. A large metal circle serves as the handle on one door…the other door has a metal gate across the lower half.

There is a stone path and a couple of stone steps in front of the doors. Ivy and green vegetation are growing all around the door frame. Above the top of the doors, is a stone carving of a circular emblem of some sort. Sunlight is streaming down on this stone emblem and onto the steps leading up to the doors.

Third Image: Is an open lounge with a view, filled with comfy-looking couches and over-stuffed chairs. There are lanterns all around, on the tables, on the guard rails and on out of the way places on the floor. There is a round free-standing stucco fireplace, with a warm-looking fire crackling within it. Large branches serve as supports for the ceiling, with cross-branches forming the structure for the ceiling.

Forth Image: Is President Trump in a windbreaker jacket, with a furrowed brow and a sympathetic smile on his face, as he visits storm victims.

  1. Ol’ Wolfie was wanderin’ out late one night
    Jus’ howlin’ at the moon with all his might
    He was joined by Bella and Boris, too
    And you’ll never see such a loathsome crew

    Well, they saw this thing comin’ out of the sky
    It had the one long horn, and one big eye
    Wolfie was a-shakin’ and startin’ to pee
    “That big flyin’ thing is comin’ for me!”

    It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin’ purple Wolfie eater
    (One-eyed, one-horned, flyin’ purple Wolfie eater)
    A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin’ purple Wolfie eater
    What a strange sight to see!

    Well he came down and he lit in a tree
    Wolfie screamed “Bella! Boris! Please help me!”
    The other two smiled then they laughed outright
    ‘Cause only Wolfie’s on the menu tonight

    Wolfie said “Big Purple, let’s make a deal.
    These two guys here would make a better meal.”
    He said “I’m particular, how I dine.
    I only eat Wolfies ‘cause they taste fine.”

    It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin’ purple Wolfie eater
    One-eyed, one-horned flyin’ purple Wolfie eater
    (I like Wolfie snacks!) Flyin’ purple Wolfie eater
    What a strange sight to see!

    Then he swung from the tree and lit on the ground
    His big purple tummy makin’ rumblin’ sounds
    He took a bite of Wolfie, then spit it out
    “That’s the worst tastin’ Wolfie without a doubt!”

    Then he flew away, and what do ya know
    Wolfie saw him last night on a TV show
    Wearin’ black glasses and lookin’ highbrow
    “That Wolfie bite changed me. I’m MAGA now!”

    It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin’ purple Wolfie eater
    One-eyed, one-horned flyin’ purple Wolfie eater
    (I hate Wolfie snacks!) Flyin’ purple Wolfie eater
    Still a strange sight to see!

    2. POTUS tweets the real news and it’s driving the Lefties, Malignant media crazy. At midnight last night, he told them to look up the “Emergency Economic Act” of 1977 to find out if he has the “power” to do what he’s doing.

      They’re in meltdown mode. I believe the reason why the media is so distressed – isn’t only because of their ideology, but because when the dam breaks – their participation, their own behaviors – either in the effort to take out our GOP candidates, and/or their decadent lifestyles – connected to Jeff Epstein are going to be revealed.

      It’s fear driving the narrative. Nothing but fear. (Well, and lots of hate…)

          1. I received an Amazon gift card last year. Found a cheap t-shirt that I liked from a third party seller. I checked the seller reviews—everything looked okay. Even had “USA” in the company name. So I order my shirt. The next day, I get an email saying that my shirt shipped from the UK. WTF? The UK? There was nothing in the product or seller description that indicated the shirt was coming from out of the country, and if I had known that, I wouldn’t have ordered it at all. It took two weeks to arrive in the mail. Bonus: The UK city where it shipped from is known for its high concentration of Muslim immigrants. I can’t prove anything, but…

            Anyways, the point here is that you can’t even buy a simple $5.00 t-shirt on Amazon anymore without encountering this BS. I know there are far worse Amazon horror stories than mine, but this is just ridiculous. I refuse to buy anything from Amazon anymore unless I get a gift card and don’t have a choice.

  6. U.S. to reopen Greenland consulate

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration is planning to open a U.S. consulate in Greenland for the first time in decades amid increased strategic and economic interest in the Danish territory.

    The State Department says in a letter to Congress that reestablishing a consulate in Greenland is part of a broader plan to increase the U.S. presence in the Arctic.

    A copy of the letter was obtained Friday by The Associated Press.

      Was Greenland “for sale” when the Chinese were shopping in 2017?
      Posted by Leslie Eastman Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 5:00pm
      https://legalinsurrection.com/2019/08/was-greenland-for-sale-when-the-chinese-were-shopping-in-2017/

      A “stable genius” and his military commanders obviously recognized that a competitor who is failing to negotiate fair trade agreements and who has been expanding its military presence in Asia through island building wants to acquire real estate and airports next to American interests in North America. This is clearly a bad deal for our country.

      Fox News analyst Tammy Bruce provides further background on the situation, and demonstrates why it sure looked like Greenland was for sale. [ *https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/aug/21/buying-greenland-trump-haters-mock-the-idea-but-ch/ ]

      In 2017, Greenland’s prime minister flew to China and asked, as the Journal reported in February of this year, “Chinese state-run banks to finance the new commercial airports, including a big one for one of the smallest capitals on earth, Nuuk, which can now be served only by propeller planes. The bankers were interested, people at the meetings said, so long as a Chinese company constructed the airports.”

      Reports indicate this action was triggered by Denmark refusing to help.

      Then-Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis was not happy and convinced Danish officials to fund the infrastructure, sidelining China. This was an effort by China starting in 2018 and only ending when they officially withdrew in June of this year. For those who look past their shallow view of the United States and the administration, one would know it’s no coincidence that the president’s remarks on Greenland became public just two months after we successfully fought off China in their latest swing at the North American island.

      As Tammy notes, the Danes are keeping Greenland as a giant nature preserve. This substantially limits the wealth-building options of its residents.

    2. Another reason Greenland is strategic – From our friends at CommiePedia:

      GIUK gap
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GIUK_gap

      The GIUK gap is an area in the northern Atlantic Ocean that forms a naval choke point. Its name is an acronym for Greenland, Iceland, and the United Kingdom, the gap being the open ocean between these three landmasses. The term is typically used in relation to military topics.

      The GIUK gap is particularly important to the Royal Navy, as any attempt by northern European forces to break into the open Atlantic would have to be made either through the heavily defended English Channel, one of the world’s busiest seaways,[1] or through one of the exits on either side of Iceland. As the British also control the strategic port of Gibraltar at the entrance to the Mediterranean, this means Spain, France, and Portugal are the only Continental European countries that possess direct access to the Atlantic Ocean that cannot easily be blocked at a choke point by the Royal Navy.

      ^^^ THAT INCLUDES any Soviet I mean Russian Naval port!!! Even Crimea or an imaginary warm water port!

      To those of us of who learned our U.S. history from texts in the 1940s and ’50s, President Donald Trump’s brainstorm of acquiring Greenland fits into a venerable tradition of American expansionism.

      . . . While Trump’s diplomacy in the Greenland matter was not as deft as Seward’s in acquiring Alaska, the attitude exhibited would not be unfamiliar to many of the great men in our history.

      And the cancellation of Trump’s state visit to Copenhagen aside, this issue of Greenland’s future has been tabled. It is not going away.

      After all, China, the aspiring superpower of the 21st century, has exhibited an interest in this largest island on Earth, strategically located between Europe and America, amid the Arctic and Atlantic oceans.

      Methinks the Danes are headed for interesting times.

    4. Evidence of a severe solar storm in 660BC uncovered in Greenland’s ice suggests there were much more significant solar storms in the past than we previously believed. Could a severe solar storm, and not a Carrington event, be a worst case scenario?

      Sounds like a job for the Space Force!

      Radioactive particles from huge solar storm found in Greenland
      Discovery raises questions about emergency plans in place for severe space weather
      https://www.theguardian.com/science/2019/mar/11/radioactive-particles-from-huge-solar-storm-found-in-greenland

      Traces of an enormous solar storm that battered the atmosphere and showered Earth in radioactive particles more than 2,500 years ago have been discovered under the Greenland ice sheet.

      Scientists studying ice nearly half a kilometre beneath the surface found a band of radioactive elements unleashed by a storm that struck the planet in 660BC.

      It was at least 10 times more powerful than any recorded by instruments set up to detect such events in the past 70 years, and as strong as the most intense known solar storm, which hit Earth in AD775.

      Raimund Muscheler, a professor of quaternary sciences at Lund University in Sweden, said: “What our research shows is that the observational record over the past 70 years does not give us a complete picture of what the sun can do.”

      The discovery means that the worst-case scenarios used in risk planning for serious space weather events underestimate how powerful solar storms can be, he said.

      How a potential Chinese-built airport in Greenland could be risky for a vital US Air Force base
      By: Aaron Mehta
      September 7, 2018
      https://www.defensenews.com/global/europe/2018/09/07/how-a-potential-chinese-built-airport-in-greenland-could-be-risky-for-a-vital-us-air-force-base/

      WASHINGTON — With less than 60,000 people spread across more than 830,000 square miles, Greenland relies heavily on air transport to move supplies and people up and down its coast.

      So when the local government issued a solicitation to build three new airports, the move made sense from a business perspective. The project would be expensive, but would improve commerce and make life on the island easier for its residents.

      Then a Chinese company — owned by the government in Beijing, and once blacklisted by the World Bank — put forth a bid, and a simple request for proposals transformed into a project with international diplomatic ramifications.

      Denmark, which has final say on national security issues involving Greenland, objected. The government in Greenland then insisted China Communications Construction Company (CCCC), which has succesfully worked on large infrastructure projects around the world, would remain one of its finalists for the projects, setting up intense negotiations between two governments.

      All this comes as officials across Europe are raising alarm over whether Chinese economic influence on the continent is becoming a national security problem — with Danish officials specifically worried that the partly-government owned company’s interest in Greenland could have a lasting impact on a key American military base located there.

      The Arctic Shipping Route No One’s Talking About
      By mid-century, a Transpolar Passage will open across the Arctic Ocean via the North Pole. Few countries are preparing for this reality except China.
      BY MIA BENNETT 2019-05-08 15:39:44
      https://www.maritime-executive.com/editorials/the-arctic-shipping-route-no-one-s-talking-about

      Due to Chatham House rules, I can’t quote anyone who spoke in the workshop. I can say, however, that during the session, it quickly became clear that talk of the Northern Sea Route’s potential was starting to seem passé in the face of rapid climate change in the Arctic. The shrinking and thinning of sea ice is happening faster than scientists thought possible – so fast that now, it’s not just the Northern Sea Route or even the Northwest Passage that people are talking about. They’re talking about a trans-Arctic passage cutting straight across the North Pole.

      As climate change accelerates and the Arctic Ocean reluctantly exchanges its year-round ice cap for merely seasonal cover, a transpolar passage is likely to open up by mid-century, if not sooner. If Arctic sea ice disappears even for just one summer, as the comprehensive 2009 Arctic Marine Shipping Assessment notes (p. 34), this would spell “the disappearance of multi-year sea ice in the central Arctic Ocean. Such an occurrence would have significant implications for design, construction and operational standards of all future Arctic marine activities.” In the absence of thick multi-year ice, which can be up to five meters deep, any water that refreezes would take the form of much thinner, more navigable seasonable ice.

      In other words, forget needing nuclear icebreakers. Within the next few decades, in summer, it may be possible (even if insurance companies and the Polar Code still mandate polar-class, ice-resistant ships) to sail in a regular vessel across the top of the Earth.

      1. A similar analysis…

        The Arctic Ocean may be the world’s smallest and most shallow, but this by no means negates the region’s geostrategic significance.
        By Trivun Sharma On May 23, 2019
        https://globalsecurityreview.com/arctic-new-maritime-shipping-route/

        The melting of the Arctic sea ice has coincided with the discovery of energy deposits as well as the development of the technology needed to access those resources. These developments have caused the members of the Arctic Council—states with territorial claims in the Arctic—to pay increased levels of attention to the region.

        . . .The Arctic plays host to substantial natural resources. A 2008 report released by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) estimated that the Arctic holds around 1,670 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, 44 billion barrels of liquid natural gas, and 90 billion barrels of oil—the vast majority of these being offshore. As more territory becomes accessible, excess reserves of gold, zinc, nickel, and iron already found in part of the Arctic may be discovered. From the connectivity perspective, the two major sea routes that permit ships to pass through the Arctic run along the Russian and Canadian coasts, i.e., the Northern Sea Route and the Northwest Passage.

        . . .The paper further estimates that 15% of all Chinese trade will be through the Northern Sea Route. The optimization of the NSR will result in a significant rerouting of the world shipping lines and would have a drastic impact on the usage of the Suez Canal and the Malacca Straits to reach the Southeastern and East Asian Markets. According to CPB research, roughly 8% of global trade currently transits the Suez Canal, and it is estimated that level would be reduced by two-thirds once the Northern Sea Route becomes fully operational. To illustrate, from 2008 to 2012 the average number of commercial ships transiting the Suez Canal each year was approximately 15,000—the re-routing of vessels through the NSR, according to CPB research, would reduce that number by 10,000.

      Mette Frederiksen, 41, is the current Prime Minister of Denmark and leader of the Social Democrats who made headlines this week after President Donald Trump postponed a meeting with her due to her having “no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland”. . .

      1. She’s the Youngest Prime Minister in Denmark History

      2. She Supports . . . Anti-Immigrant Policies

      [N.B. they describe “her left-leaning economics and right-leaning immigration policies” – not happy with the migrant situation]

      3. She Has a Plan to Cut Denmark’s Carbon Emissions 70% by 2030

      Frederiksen has pushed the party’s economic and climate change policies far to the left.

      In fact, climate change has become her number one priority. In an ambitious agreement the new government pledged to reduce carbon emissions by 70% below the 1990 level, a massive increase over the previous target of 40%.

      The new roadmap was agreed to by Social Democrats, the centrist Danish Social Liberal Party, the Socialist People’s Party, and the Red-Green Alliance. In a statement, the left-wing alliance admitted the target would be “particularly difficult to reach” but that “the world and Denmark are in a climate crisis” and that limiting global temperature rise is “not just the right thing to do, it’s also the most economically responsible one”.

      4. She’s Engaged to Director Bo Tengberg

      [ woohoo… ]

      5. She Started Her Career in Politics at a Young Age

      . . . “She has been preoccupied with political matters since she was six/seven years old,” he said, adding, “I have never doubted that Mette, if she wanted to, could go all the way.”

      Mette became an official member of the Social Democrats’ youth branch at 15 and was appointed to her first position in parliament as Employment and Justice Minister at 24.

    HR 838 TAPS Act – Constitutional Review

    by KrisAnne Hall, JD

    The text of the TAPS Act is not the solution to gun violence many members of Congress are professing it to be. The unlimited and arbitrary authority this Act bestows upon a bureaucracy of 24 people, combined with the language of double-speak and contradictions creating loopholes allowing completely unsupervised and unchecked authority is reminiscent of the Sedition Act of 1798.

    SUMMARY:

    The TAPS act will create a brand new bureaucracy under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. A non-elected bureaucrat is authorized by Congress to appoint 23 other non-elected bureaucrats to invent the authority for federal and State government agents to “identify individuals who are exhibiting patterns of concerning behavior” and then to “manage” those Americans.

    The sole purpose of this bureaucracy of 24 will be to create State and federal policing bodies ruling over the perceived behavior of the American people- KGB-style agencies not only monitoring the behavior of Americans, but also functioning as judge, jury, and executioner.

        It is in THE 45 COMMUNIST GOALS AS READ INTO THE CONGRESSIONAL RECORD, 1963

        I have including several of the surounding goals since the Communist have achieved those goals too.

        ….
        18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

        19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

        20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.

        21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

        22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.”

        23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.”

        24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

        25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

        26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

        27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a “religious crutch.”

        28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

              Norman Mattoon Thomas: Socialism and the DNC.
              A leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential
              candidate for the Socialist Party of America.

              The Socialist Party candidate for President of the U.S.,
              Norman Thomas, said this in a 1944 speech:

              “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation,
              without knowing how it happened.”
              He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate
              for the Socialist Party.
              The Democrat Party has adopted our platform.”

              “The problem with socialism is that you eventually
              run out of other people’s money.”

              ~Margaret Thatcher~

              The democracy will cease to exist when you take from those
              who are willing to work and give to those who are not.

It’s been improved with a flock of pink flamingo lawn ornaments thanks to a local radio personality. And one summer, there was a couple who were meeting inside it for conjugal relations. As one woman interviewed on television put it, “S-E-X, baby, live.” There was a federal judge who used to stop court to watch. That was at least 20 years ago.

          1. One of the biggest problems with Art History is that we have done SO LITTLE to recognize how 100% of our artistic tastes have been PERVERTED INTENTIONALLY by communism and neo-marxism!

            1. Truthfully, much of what we now consider to be great art was commissioned by wealthy patrons. It was executed to their tastes, and preferences which were often about fashion moreso than anything else (see Picasso in Paris, he knew what he was painting was crap). In the US, anyway, the wealthy commissioning and purchasing crap at outrageous prices are into perversions. That’s part of it.

              Funny, I went to Crystal Bridges in Bentonville, AR, to see Alice Walton’s collection which is comprised of American art (mostly works not considered to be major), and was rather stunned that there is nothing religious there. Nada. Being Catholic, art is a part of the celebration of the faith. Of late, the beauty that is really supposed to be in the art has been disfigured, after a fashion, and a lot of what is called art today is really not complementary to God’s creation.

    WUWT has charts and statistics from 2003 to the present:

    ‘Postscript 3: The NY Times claims 2019 fires are way up, over 2018. That is correct. What they don’t say, is that about 1/2 the years BEFORE 2019 are higher, and about 1/2 are lower. Cherry picking of the first order.

    ‘Postscript 4: Nick Stokes points out that one province is at record levels of fires. True, its just under record levels today. But that means that the rest of the entire region must be UNDER average (2003-present). Looking at each region in the Amazon Basin, that is indeed true. Santa Cruz and Amazonas are above average, the rest are at or well below average. Result? The entire region is very nearly at the MODIS average for this time of year.’

    What happen in 2018 was the question.

    I think there was a lot of voter fraud.

    EVERY SINGLE CLOSE RACE and even some that were frist declared for the Repub went to a democrat! Hopefully that is being quietly taken care of.

    Also I think President Trump actually wanted a DemonRat house.
    WHY?

    In the first two years he was FIGHTING WITH HIS OWN PARTY AND LOSING — This is a very bad look. If he has to fight with Congress it is best to fight against the Democrats and NOT the Republicans. He can not afford having the voting population thinking no matter WHO they put in office their wishes are ignored. link

    Look what is happening. The DemonRats can not get thru any of their idiotic bills but they sure are LOUDLY PROCLAIMING how Anti-American, Anti-Israel, and down right crazy they are.

    President Trump is a long range planner. He would lose the house IF it gave him:
    1. A Strong Senate that confirms JUDGES and cabinet picks (like Barr)
    2. GOT RID OF Lying Ryan
    3. GOT RID OF useless RINOs

    Trump Admin Is Considering Using Amazon Echo And Apple Watch To Determine If Citizens Should Own A Gun

    “The Trump administration is considering a proposal that would use Google, Amazon and Apple to collect data on users who exhibit characteristics of mental illness that could lead to violent behavior, The Washington Post reported Thursday.

    The proposal is part of an initiative to create a Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA), which would be located inside the Health and Human Services Department, the report notes, citing sources inside the administration. The new agency would have a separate budget and the president would be responsible for appointing its director.

    HARPA would take after Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, which serves as the research arm for the Pentagon.”

    NOTE:“The White House declined to provide the Daily Caller News Foundation with a statement but sources told WaPo that Trump has reacted “very positively” to the proposal — it is unclear if he has seen the Safe Home idea.

    Google and Amazon have also not responded to the DCNF’s requests for comment.”
