Pretty, huh?

Okay, viral video of the day if you haven’t seen it. This was live streamed from in front of the Supreme Court building in Washington, D.C. A number of physicians from all over the country came together to talk some truth about COVID-19. By far the star of the show was Dr. Stella Immanuel, a Nigerian native who now lives in Texas. Her remarks begin just after the three minute mark of this particular video:

The original Breitbart video of this presentation was taken down for “violating community standards.” If this video does not appear, it will be replaced. There are multiple links to the five minutes of magnificence.

6:52 am EDIT: All online videos of that press conference are being HEAVILY censored across the Big Club Family of social media platforms. The physicians’ information presented is being labeled “misinformation” and false even if there is documented evidence it is not. Here is a presentation on the censoring:

I found this in my Twitter feed last week. It’s worth your time.

A little mood music:

And a reminder to take the pledge:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”

And now for the nitty gritty of the Q Tree 5 minute, stand up, Tuesday morning meeting version of the Daily Thread.

JER 14:17-22

Let my eyes stream with tears
day and night, without rest,
Over the great destruction which overwhelms
the virgin daughter of my people,
over her incurable wound.
If I walk out into the field,
look! those slain by the sword;
If I enter the city,
look! those consumed by hunger.
Even the prophet and the priest
forage in a land they know not.

Have you cast Judah off completely?
Is Zion loathsome to you?
Why have you struck us a blow
that cannot be healed?
We wait for peace, to no avail;
for a time of healing, but terror comes instead.
We recognize, O LORD, our wickedness,
the guilt of our fathers;
that we have sinned against you.
For your name’s sake spurn us not,
disgrace not the throne of your glory;
remember your covenant with us, and break it not.
Among the nations’ idols is there any that gives rain?
Or can the mere heavens send showers?
Is it not you alone, O LORD,
our God, to whom we look?

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome. Via con Dios.

    That should give you clear insight into why the teacher’s unions are opposed to opening the schools this fall.

    Deputizing the entire teacher workforce, by hook or crook, to be Joe Biden’s shock troops.

    And why not? Nobody wants to volunteer for the Joe Biden campaign.

      1. That would be great.

        And no Rochester has relatively mild winters. It is Buffalo and the Southern Tier that get the bad weather.

        I lived in Rochester NY for years when it was a really nice town to live in. There WERE NO SLUMS. The Blacks in Rochester were ‘house proud’ and the churches saw to it that paint and garden supplies and ‘muscle’ was available to spruce up the houses each spring.

        1. A friend got her Doctorate there and really complained about the winters, but she is a southerner so perhaps that made a difference. 😁
          Isn’t the Corning manufacturing facility there, also? I went through both but it was so long ago that I honestly don’t remember much about it.

        2. You should wash your mouth with soap living in NC and calling Rochester winters “mild”. Yeah, sure, they can say that in Buffalo, or Ontario, or Thule…..but Rochester is *brrrr* cold to this California boy. [Fiancee went to St. John Fisher].

          Liked by 1 person

        3. Mainly the southern tier, ski country due to the lake effect wind and weather patterns. Buffalo is cold and very gray skies from Nov to March. Usually have one or two bigger snows in the city during a winter, from lake effect weather patterns. Life goes on just fine and people know how to navigate what the weather brings there.

          Northern suburbs and east towards Rochester get much the same type of winter. Less snow and easier for travelers, but sometimes Rochester gets quite a bit of snow. Lots of winters are fairly mild like this past one and then there are the big bad ones that occur a couple times a decade. Those are nasty usually all across WNY right into Rochester. Always remember this region sits between and along side two of the Great Lakes-Erie and Ontario- and is effected greatly by them. Off the end tip of Ontario over by Oswego and Syracuse is a region of lots of snow in winter. Big time.

          Someone from the south or milder climes would probably not like the whole winter picture in WNY. But it’s not always as much snow as people around the country think outside the lake effect patterns which are mostly south of the city. If sunshine is important on a daily basis though, this region is not for you in the winter.

            1. East Bloc history and politics is SO complex and filled with alliance and betrayal. Go back to the 1800s, and the Poles were basically colonizers and overlords of Ukraine. The novel and movies Taras Bulba (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taras_Bulba) gives some idea of the complexity, given that yes – now you see a movie about Ukraine and Stalin with Polish backing. But Russians don’t see Sovietism as much theirs as imposed on Russia by outsiders.

              Poles are sometimes easily used controlled opposition on Russia, BTW, just like anti-Russian Ukrainians. Some are such reflexive haters of Russia, behaving in easily predictable ways, that sneaky Russian and allied assets can manipulate them easily.

              Cankles was pretty masterful – serving Russian interests while pussyfooting with Ukraine in a way that pretends to be anti-Russian, then trying to bait Republicans into the mess.

              Complicated business.

              1. It’s too much for me. The film is still worthwhile. You would not know a rabid liberal activist had written the screenplay.

                One of the memorable lines in the film comes from a female journalist who admits to Garwth Jines that he was right, there is only one truth.

                I took that to mean that there is objective truth, something that liberals have a terrible time understanding or even admitting.

              The big story:

              The Chalupa sisters (I think there is a third) were Cankles’ pet Ukrainians.

              Oh, this is really interesting. I think these sisters are controlled opposition. They’re rabidly anti-Russian Ukrainian offspring, who are literally BLIND to the fact that communists (like Hillary and Obama) are controlling them. This is why you can have Uranium Girl Cankles, who HELPED Russia in the most incredible ways, being assisted by the Chalupa sisters – rabid anti-Russian Ukrainian background but NOT real Ukrainian, so they really have no clue how backstabbing, false, and “nested doll” the politics of Ukraine and Russia really are. They literally helped Hillary Clinton – tool of Russia – thinking that they were “stopping” Russia.

              Oh, they’re just so pliable.

              Amazing story.

              You know how I’m always talking about Duranty and the New York Times. This woman was literally on the NYT / commie side. She’s BLINDED by hatred. It’s fascinating.

              2. It’s incredible, isn’t it? That movie can be very true – Andrea Chalupa can be totally red-pilled on communism – and yet – she inadvertently HELPS the side she opposes – Sovietism – by helping a hidden agent of Sovietism and Maosim – Hillary – who pretends to be opposed to them. And THIS is the best part – Andrea and Alexandra Chalupa, as controlled opposition, provide COVER. This is like McCain – Brainwash McCain – who was individually controlled opposition. So useful to the leftists. His knee-jerk reactions on Ukraine and Syria were exactly what the forces of the left needed to get us into another losing bait war.

                Hillary getting control of Ukraine in that coup, using tiki torch neo-Nazis, was basically practice for America. “Color revolution”. And yes, controlled opposition helps. Just like McMuffin – controlled opposition.
