TA DA!!!!!! Oooooops!!!

Let’s face it, the turkey is the STAR of the Thanksgiving holiday! That being said, it’s not important to include the turkey in EVERY facet of the day, right?  I’m not even sure that IS a turkey in the photo above—looks like the Loch Ness Monster to me. 

In my house, we never did much with appetizers on Thanksgiving—the meal was THE focus—and eating before that seemed sacrilege.  However, if you want to present your guests with something to do – why are they not pitching in and helping is my question— here are some lovely centerpieces to showcase your talents and occupy their time–seriously, there’s always a need for someone to wash dishes.  Your guests will nosh, laugh at times, and be full by dinner. Que sera sera.

The Fruit Kabob Turkeys

The Turkey Cheesed Ball (doesn’t he look mad?)

The Child’s Table Turkeys

Turdey CAKES? (not a typo–look at them!)

My suggestions?

Keep it simple…

Keep it fun…

Keep it real…

    1. Morning, Pat! Pay day, therefore errand day for me. Stock up time! I’ve got a ham on my list today — a spiral-sliced honey ham — I’ll have ham in my freezer for months! Yeah!!! And bean soup, of course, since last years’ is gone now. I also need to make another batch of beef stew but I take all the potatoes out before I freeze it, then cook fresh potatoes when I want to heat some up. Can’t stand me no gritty spuds!!!!

    This is leftwing stuff as they start moving in to get ready to attack DeSantis. This has no effect on me one way or the other as I don’t care about the Gitmo stuff (forced feeding and alleged torture)…nor do I automatically believe ex prisoners. But the left placed attorneys in there over human rights issues. I have no idea what they would say (nor do I care about their insane bias).

    However, it gives you an idea of one of the directions the left will take….

    That DeSantis was part of the Gitmo torture and committed war crimes.

    1. Frankly, it wouldn’t surprise me and to be equally frank? I really don’t GAS! I never had a problem with water-boarding….if our troops can handle it during training, and they do, I have no issue with DeS on this front. The fact is, Islamists will, and do, commit FAR worse torture than we could ever dream of!!! Is there a fine line that shouldn’t be crossed? Of course! Gratuitous torture is never justified. However, this fact will never change – Islamists do NOT value life, they value death above all things, just like the Fakestinians. There is no equal ground there.

      Then again…..we shouldn’t have been in their country in the first place!!!!

    Pennsylvania Voters Request Numerous Precinct Election Recounts


    Voters in some Pennsylvania counties are asking for recounts of the results of the Nov. 8 elections.

    Some want an explanation for why the Department of State’s website reported shortly after polls closed on election night that 4.2 million more mail-in ballots had been cast in the governor’s race than the number of registered voters in Pennsylvania, while others cited problems they experienced at polling sites and want confirmation that their vote was counted.

  11. now tell me this hasn’t been planned since right before the Mar-a-lago raid…florida legislature mulling changing the law so ron the rescuer doesn’t have to resign to run for president
    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida’s top Republican leaders say they are willing to change state law to smooth the way for Gov. Ron DeSantis to run for president in 2024.

    Both House Speaker Paul Renner (R-Palm Coast) and Senate President Kathleen Passidomo (R-Naples), both of whom were sworn into their new posts on Tuesday, agreed it would be a “good idea” to make it clear that DeSantis would not have to resign if he wound up becoming the GOP nominee.

    DeSantis was reelected to a second four-year term earlier this month after he defeated his Democratic rival by roughly 20 points.

    “If an individual who is Florida governor is running for president, I think he should be allowed to do it,” Passidomo told reporters. “I really do. That’s a big honor and a privilege, so it is a good idea.”

    While DeSantis has not yet said he will definitely run in 2024, he has emerged as a top potential contender for the job. Some are pressing him to run even though former President Donald Trump has already announced his third bid for the White House. Recent polls have shown support for DeSantis is rising among Republican voters.

    Florida law requires anyone running for a new office to put in an irrevocable letter of resignation ahead of qualifying if the terms of the two offices overlap. The law was changed in 2008 to open the door for then-Gov. Charlie Crist to seek the vice presidency, but legislators reversed course four years ago and put back in a place a requirement that someone seeking federal office would have to resign ahead of the actual election.

  12. 4 chinese people executed at oklahoma pot farm? weird… not releasing many details because it could endanger others?
    entire article
    Police have identified a suspect in the quadruple homicide at a marijuana farm in Oklahoma this weekend, but won’t release their identity as doing so could potentially put others in danger.

    The Kingfisher County Sheriff’s office received a call on Sunday night about a possible hostage situation at the farm, but deputies arrived there to find four people dead and one injured, according to the Associated Press.

    Authorities said on Tuesday that three men and one woman were “executed” on the ten-acre property west of Hennessey, while a fifth victim was found wounded and taken to a local hospital.

    A suspect has been identified, but the name is being withheld for the time to avoid endangering others.

    “The suspect was inside that building for a significant amount of time before the executions began,” the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) said in a Tuesday news release. “Based on the investigation thus far, this does not appear to be a random incident.”

    It is believed that the suspect knew the victims, though it is unclear exactly how.

    “They all know each other,” OSBI Capt. Stan Florence said on Monday. “We don’t know if they’re related, or if they’re coworkers, but certainly these individuals were, we believe, all familiar with each other.”

    The victims have not yet been identified, and a “significant language barrier” is making next-of-kin notification difficult, police said.

    The case is also being investigated by the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control, as it is possible that drug trafficking or black market dealing could have contributed to the incident, though Mark Woodward, a spokesman for the agency, said it was too soon to say.

    “It being a marijuana farm, obviously Oklahoma state law requires that they have a license from the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority and from us,” Woodward said. “One of the things we’re looking at is, is it obtained legally or was it obtained by fraud? So that’ll be part of our investigation.

    Medical marijuana was legalized in Oklahoma in 2018. Voters in the Sooner State will get to decide in March whether to legalize marijuana for recreational use as well, which would bring the total number states that allow recreational use to 22.



  13. “New “Food is Medicine” Nutrition Screening, RX, Tracking and Control”
    November 22, 2022 / 1 Comment

    EXCERPT: “On September 28, 2022, The White House announced $8 billion in new commitments toward hunger, nutrition, and health. The White House hosted the conference that laid out a “transformational vision for ending hunger and reducing diet-related disease by 2030 – all while closing disparities among the communities that are impacted most.”

    These “new commitments” were determined over the summer, with both private- and public-sector involvement in the funding, stemming from:

    • Philanthropic contributions and donations to community-based organizations
    • Investments in new businesses that will screen and integrate nutrition into health care
    • $2.5 billion in start-up companies creating “solutions” to hunger and food insecurity
    • Over $4 billion toward “philanthropy that improves access to nutritious food, promotes healthy choices, and increases physical activity”

    The business, civic, academic, and philanthropic “leaders” were announced at this conference in September, who will allegedly end hunger and reduce diet-related disease. The narrative is to convince everyone that it is due to Covid and climate change, and therefore, these ineffective so-called leaders will suddenly have the people’s best interest at heart and finally get the job done. The reality is, the economic decline due to the lockdowns, manufactured supply chain disruptions, putting thousands of companies out of business, intentional inflation, and health conditions exploited during and after the orchestrated plandemic is what has created a loss of income, inability to afford food and gas, and complete disruption in everyone’s well being.

    In addition to the above…

    On November 16, the FDA completed its pre-market consultation for Upside Foods animal cell culture technology to produce chicken from cultured chicken cells. Upside Foods recently launched their lab grown meat facility in California, and is backed by 37 investors, including Bill Gates and Temasek Holdings. As Corey’s Digs has reported for the past five years, here, here, and here, regarding lab grown meat, the FDA and USDA approved the overall process of this long ago and have been working on the overall consultations, cell lines, and labeling regulations. This more recent press release pertains to another step in the FDA approval to bring Upside Foods to market, while inviting other firms to develop cultured animal cell food from livestock, poultry, and seafood, in what they call “a food revolution.”

    “CAPTAIN IS OUT”. Captain incapacitation. Co-pilot saved the situation. Chicago O’Hare. Real ATC

    EXCERPT: “At 7:59 p.m. on Sat., Nov. 19, Captain Patrick Ford collapsed at the controls of his American Eagle Embraer 175 – only seconds after the 76-seat jet had left the runway in Chicago. Ford was speaking to an air traffic controller at Chicago O’Hare, one of the world’s busiest airports, when his voice abruptly stopped, a publicly available recording of the incidents show.

    “Can I help you?” the controller anxiously asked, seconds later. “We need to return, captain is incapacitated,” Ford’s copilot coolly reported. The jet, bound for Columbus, Ohio, had barely reached 2,000 feet of altitude. Any mistake could have led it to crash within seconds.

    But the Embraer’s copilot, Captain Brandon Hendrickson, took control. Hendrickson brought the jet to 5,000 feet and within minutes had it back on the ground at O’Hare. Through Hendrickson was in the first officer’s seat, he was actually overseeing Ford as a “line check airman” because Ford was so new to Envoy Air, a regional carrier owned by American Airlines.

    Ford’s body remained in the pilot’s seat throughout.”

    EXCERPT: “Healthcare professionals, like many of you, have grieved the inability to trust the big 3 letter government orgs which so many thought we could, along with grieving the demise and disability caused by covid illness and too-late, poor management of it. Many healthcare professionals, more and more all the time now, are also grieving from the demise and disability they either have experienced themselves or experience in their families or patients post covid jabs.

    I had several patients and personal friends tell me their doctor ‘suddenly’ or ‘unexpectedly’ passed, or retired, or moved far away in the last 18 months. Just like the logger out west I was reading about last week, who said he has never seen such a mass exodus of coworkers and peers. Neither have I. I am sure many folks, perhaps even you, can and do say this about their workplaces as well.

    Just today, I had two more new patients who said their previous PCP, just down the road, ‘died suddenly’ and ‘unexpectedly’ recently, so they had to find a new practice.

  17. CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) — A Walmart manager opened fire on fellow employees gathered in the break room of a Virginia store, a witness said Wednesday. Six people were killed in the country’s second high-profile mass killing in a handful of days.

    The gunman also killed himself, Chesapeake Police Chief Mark G. Solesky said. There was no clear motive for the shooting, which also left four people in the hospital. The store was busy just before the shooting Tuesday night with people stocking up ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday, a shopper told a local TV station.

    Employee Briana Tyler told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that workers had gathered in the store’s break room as part of their regular routine ahead of their shifts. “I looked up, and my manager just opened the door and he just opened fire,” she said, adding that “multiple people” dropped to the floor. “He didn’t say a word, he didn’t say anything at all,” she said. The gunman’s home was searched. Solesky confirmed he was a Walmart employee but did not give his name because his family had not been notified.

    “I am devastated by the senseless act of violence that took place late last night in our city,” Mayor Rick W. West said in a statement posted on the city’s Twitter account Wednesday. “Chesapeake is a tightknit community and we are all shaken by this news.”

  18. Dr. Mike Yeadon: “I Didn’t Do My Homework” – “I’m Ashamed That I Was Pro-Vaccine” — “I am now not trusting of any product from this industry…”
    The Vigilant Fox
    5 min ago

    EXCERPT: “Refuse genetic vaccines!” urged former Pfizer chief scientist Dr. Mike Yeadon during World Council for Health’s 66th General Assembly.

    “I certainly, when I was in [the pharmaceutical] industry, I was pro-vaccine. I would say I now abstain at best. And I’m ashamed that I was pro-vaccine because I didn’t do my homework,” confessed Yeadon.

    “I worked in the field of small molecules, pharmaceuticals,” he continued. “I was never in the field of biologicals, where the therapeutics that are vaccines were made. I never looked at the data. I never thought hard about it. I just accepted what I’ve been taught at school and in university. And once you start looking, you realize it’s extraordinarily questionable what’s gone on for decades.”

    Yeadon’s tale, I’m sure, is a typical story of intellectual negligence, where 99% of individuals believe what they are told. They don’t do their own research. Instead, they trust the work that’s been laid out before them without taking a metaphorical look under the microscope to discover things for themself.

    But because the COVID debacle opened the eyes of so many, all vaccines are now in question. Trust in them is at an all-time low — and books like ‘Turtles All the Way Down’ are making waves. Perhaps Robert F. Kennedy, Jr and Children’s Health Defense may not be crazy after all.”

    The President(!) has plenary power concerning classification and declassification – derived from Article 2 itself. (Navy v. Eagan, SCOTUS). Upon leaving office, he retains the highest level of security clearance and is entitled to receive national security briefings every day. Everything that a President does in his office, everything that he produces, every transcript, is by default “Top Secret.” Because of who he is.

    Every President, upon leaving office, took sometimes very-considerable amounts of classified material with them, and sometimes put it in strange places: a warehouse, a storage room beside a little restaurant, in the garage. They decided what to contribute back to the National Archives. All of this is perfectly legal.

    What was illegal was for FBI Agents, who did not have appropriate security clearances, to take these materials out of the secure facility (Mar a Lago), then pore through them and leak some of their contents to the Press. One of the fundamental justifications for a “Special Master” is to preserve the secrecy of these materials – which in this case has been utterly and illegally trashed.

    The DOJ has no legal case here. It is they who broke the law, not the former President.

    “Italians who refuse job offers to have social benefits revoked, says Meloni — “We’ll keep helping those who can’t work. For the others it will be abolished,” Meloni announced”
    November 23, 2022
    editor: REMIX NEWS author: THOMAS BROOKE

    Italian Premier Giorgia Meloni talks to journalists during a press conference to present the 2023 proposed budget in Rome, Tuesday, Nov. 22, 2022. (AP Photo/Gregorio Borgia)

    ENTIRE ARTICLE: “Italians on unemployment benefits who turn down reasonable job offers will have their access to social security payments revoked in new laws expected to be introduced by Giorgia Meloni’s new administration.

    In a pledge to clamp down on a relief scheme that Meloni claims rewards laziness and is widely abused, the new Italian prime minister vowed to amend the citizens’ income available across the country, making it conditional upon those who receive job offers while receiving the benefit to take the position.

    The citizens’ income is an initiative first introduced by the left-wing Five Star Movement and sees over 3.5 million Italians receive a payment of €780 per month. Receipt of the benefit is widely skewed toward the poorer south of the country where 2.3 million of the recipients reside.

    As Meloni announced her first budget on Tuesday, she claimed it was wrong “to put people who can work on the same level as those that can’t. “Faithful to our principles, we’ll keep helping those who can’t work. For the others it will be abolished,” she added.

    The system is expected to undergo an overhaul at the beginning of 2024. Meloni’s budget sought to stimulate the economy with €35 billion euros of increased spending or tax cuts. It introduced tax cuts for the self-employed and employees, and hiked a windfall tax on energy companies from 25 percent to 35 percent, and cut VAT on essentials such as baby and sanitary products,

    The new government also lowered the age at which citizens can draw on their pension from 64 to 62, providing they have paid in at least 41 years of contributions.”

    November 23, 2022
    editor: REMIX NEWS author: REMIX NEWS STAFF

    EXCERPT: “A video of an unidentified man harassing U.S. soldiers in a Polish mall has been uploaded to social media, with the man asking the soldiers if they were in Poland to “spread sodomy,” claiming it was “America’s number one export.”

    The man is seen approaching four uniformed American soldiers, three of which appear to be White males and the other a Black or Hispanic male. The man first asks the soldiers, “You guys Americans? Are you guys here to spread sodomy or what? Isn’t that what America’s number one export is?” The soldiers first laugh but then appear to try and ignore the man, who continues to follow them. He then asks them, “What is it? Is it George Floyd culture, is it sodomy?”

    It is unclear where in Poland the video was filmed, but it is clearly a Polish mall. Although the man speaks with what appears to be an American accent, he refers to Poland as his country. He then asks the soldiers about Admiral Rachel L. Levine, a four-star general, who serves as U.S. Health Secretary, and is one of the few openly transgender officials in the United States’ administration.

    “What do you guys think about your health secretary being a f**king tranny? Hey, guys. What do you guys think about your health secretary being a tranny? Nothing?” he asks. Later, he adds, “You guys literally have fucking transexuals that wear dresses that are your fucking superiors.”

    1. “Although the United States was once 90 percent White, it has seen a dramatic fall of its White population in just a few decades, falling to under 60 percent as of 2022. New estimates say that the White majority may become a minority as soon as the end of 2030 due to a surge in non-White Hispanics and other non-White groups through both immigration and higher birth rates. Poland, in contrast, is still close to nearly entirely White European, with 96.9 percent of ethnic Polish descent, with the remaining balance mostly Ukrainians and other European groups.

      The Polish government is on record as being committed to anti-racism, but has also promoted a strict immigration policy that Poles appear to overwhelmingly favor. Hate speech laws in the country may result in prosecution if the man’s identity comes to light. In addition, Poland is one of the United States’ closest military allies, with the country hosting a large contingent of U.S. soldiers in Poland as a part of the NATO agreements.”

  22. DACA was supposed to be ONLY for law abiding illegal juveniles—but the juveniles are committing murder and rape and other violent crimes and being treated as juveniles and so that does not appear on their “records”…nice, huh? so making them LEGAL citizens means we are legalizing crimes against American citizens!!
    That explains the news out there that House Democrats are planning a mass amnesty for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients, illegal aliens who are minors under Obama-era protection from deportation, brought in by their parents or the human smugglers they paid, if not here on their own.

    According to a report from Fox News dated Saturday:

    Democrats and immigration activists are looking to get some form of amnesty for illegal immigrants through Congress in the lame duck session before they lose the House of Representatives to Republicans at the beginning of 2023.

    Senators and activists held a press conference Wednesday calling for Republicans in the chamber to work with Democrats to pass a version of the DREAM Act, which would grant a path to citizenship for recipients (and those otherwise eligible) of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

    That program, established by President Barack Obama in 2012, granted protection from deportation for millions of illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. The program was recently dealt a blow when an appeals court upheld a 2021 ruling that prevented further enrollments, which was found to be illegal.

    While it does not affect the approximately 700,000 already enrolled, the ruling fueled new pushes for a permanent “fix.” However, the DREAM Act would go beyond that 700,000 with advocates estimating it could give a pathway to citizenship for approximately two million.

    According to an email from the Center for Immigration Studies (not up on their website at this point), that’s problematic, because there are a lot of criminals in that 700,000 alone:

    Washington, D.C. (November 22, 2022) – A new Center for Immigration Studies report details how our immigration laws handle criminal alien minors who are dealt with, not in adult criminal court, but in the juvenile justice system. This is especially relevant now, as the media is reporting that House Democrats will bring up a bill to grant permanent residence to beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in the lame duck session of Congress.

    The CIS report documents that:

    Juveniles commit a large number of serious offenses. For instance, in 2020, there were 1,353 known juvenile homicide offenders and, in 2019, juveniles constituted 8 percent of all arrests for murder.
    Juvenile perpetrators are much more likely to be processed through a juvenile justice system than a criminal court.
    However, our immigration laws do not subject to removal alien minors “adjudicated” delinquent in juvenile courts, as our laws do for aliens convicted in criminal court, even for offenses up to and including murder.

    One of the prime selling points for DACA and DREAM Act legislation has been that beneficiaries are not criminals and don’t pose a risk to public safety. But is this true? The DACA program has never disqualified aliens adjudicated delinquent in juvenile court, and as a result many DACA recipients were affiliated with gangs and many had arrest records. USCIS has admitted that “we let those with criminal arrests for sexually assaulting a minor, kidnapping, human trafficking, child pornography, or even murder be provided [DACA] protection”.

    So amnesty is set to go out to even killers of Americans.

    Sound like a sound choice in choosing whom to allow in to the U.S.? Only to the congressional Democrats who are backing this proposed new law. While foreign doctors, nurses, engineers and entrepreneurs pay thousands in legal costs and patiently wait in line for years for their number to get called in order to immigrate here legally, bottom-of-the-barrel gang members are being handed instant amnesty and a path to U.S. citizenship through this hideous new DACA amnesty measure.

    Sound fair to legal immigrants? It’s not fair, and it’s not in the least bit fair to Americans here, either, as it effectively imports Latin America’s hellhole crime problem into the U.S. and makes Americans the victims.

    Is anyone calculating the potential prison costs this amnesty will bring with it? Probably not. But such costs will run in the millions and that’s if the crimes get solved, which most won’t, given that they’ll be acts of vandalism, car break-ins, smash and grab robberies, drug dealing, and muggings.

      “Although the United States was once 90 percent White, it has seen a dramatic fall of its White population in just a few decades, falling to under 60 percent as of 2022. New estimates say that the White majority may become a minority as soon as the end of 2030 due to a surge in non-White Hispanics and other non-White groups through both immigration and higher birth rates.”

    Yours Truly: Yeah, ti works both as a preventative and as a cure against COVID-19.
    Yeah, the CDC / NIH / Fauci / Big Pharma, etc., all lied.
    FTA: “Few Americans comprehend that the purpose of ObamaCare was to drive doctors out of private practice and turn them into employees stripped of the ability to treat patients in keeping with their own judgment. This allowed Fauci, acting for Big Pharma, to impose COVID treatment protocols that prevented doctors in corporate medicine from curing their patients with COVID.”

    1. This is from 2016:

      EXCERPT: “There is a dangerous trend underway in American healthcare: The death of the private practice doctor’s office. This is a deliberate trend driven primarily by federal policymakers, and it does not bode well for either the cost of healthcare or the health of individual patients.

      Policymakers in Washington, D.C. increasingly operate on the theory that large healthcare organizations are more data-driven, more efficient, and more effective than their small, private-practice counterparts. This mindset has guided the creation of many laws and regulations, most notably the Affordable Care Act. Shortly after the law’s passage in 2010, a senior Obama administration official told doctors that it would “lead to vertical organization of providers and accelerate physician employment by hospitals and aggregation into larger physician groups.”

      I have watched this prediction come true from my position as a private practice doctor. Recent years have seen a stampede of my fellow physicians accepting buyout offers from hospitals and other large providers. The Physicians Foundation, which conducts surveys of America’s doctors, found that 62% of physicians were independent in 2008. By 2014 that number had dropped to 35%—a precipitous decline in such a short timeframe. A 2012 survey by the Doctor Patient Medical Association found that 95% of physicians see corporate medicine supplanting the traditional private practice.

      The causes are many, but two factors under the Affordable Care Act are among the biggest causes of this transformation. The first are the financial incentives that favor consolidation over independence. The second is the law’s increased regulatory burden, which threatens to overwhelm private practices.

      These two problems are often related. For example, the Affordable Care Act made mandatory a number of cost and health outcome reporting requirements for physicians who see Medicare patients, which is about 90% of us. Failure to comply results in slashed reimbursement rates that run as high as 6%. Yet the additional administrative burden of participating in these programs falls hardest on small private practices, which, perversely, are also subject to the stiffest penalties.

      This obviously incentivizes private practice doctors to accept buyout offers from much larger entities. So does the steady growth of red tape under the law. At my practice, I have seen the costs and time requirement associated with regulatory compliance climb significantly since the law went into effect.

      The Affordable Care Act also pushes doctors to merge into so-called “Accountable Care Organizations.” These entities receive financial bonuses for doing the same work done in private practices. Doctors, acting rationally, want to capture these bonuses and thus abandon their traditional business models. Sure enough, since 2011, physicians have flocked to ACOs, with the creation of 744 such groups serving more than 20 million Americans as of the end of last year.”

    1. Wait for half your relatives to die in the harsh winter before celebrating: You’ll have less drama.

    2. Invite famous Native American Elizabeth Warren to bring you a deer carcass: Delicious!

    3. Make the women do all the cooking over an open hearth: And have them ditch the pumpkin pie for a historically authentic eel pie.

    4. Ask Uncle Bob to deliver a 3-hour Puritan sermon before eating: It’s better than listening to his political rants.

    5. Weld an oil funnel onto your 12-gauge and go skeet shooting with your new blunderbuss: With a 10-foot spread, you can’t miss!

    6. Silence the children with a swift strike upon the cheek: As was Puritan custom.

    7. Have one of the family members wear an authentic buffalo-skin loincloth and give everyone a corn-planting lesson: As long as it’s not Uncle Bob.

    8. Get the COVID booster to simulate the feeling of influenza: Wow! This is just how William Bradford must have felt!

    9. Lose a couple of fingers to frostbite: Hey! You have plenty more!

    10. Show more humility and gratefulness than you ever have in your life: Man, those Puritans knew how to be THANKFUL.

    “FBI Closely Monitoring Gathering Of Christian Nationalists
    U.S. · Nov 22, 2022 · BabylonBee.com

    “ROANOKE, VA — The FBI has dispatched surveillance teams after several reports surfaced of Christian Nationalists planning to spend a day thanking God for His blessings and praying for America.

    “Looks like the turkey’s hit the table, boys,” reported Agent Schwartz to the tactical team. “That means the praying will be inbound shortly if I know these sickos like I think I do.”

    The FBI has reported a massive increase in Christian Nationalist activity as of late, with many in the Bureau expecting a widespread show of force on Thanksgiving. “The entire Thanksgiving holiday is basically a dog whistle for Christian Nationalists,” explained FBI Director Christopher Wray. “Here we have a holiday declared by Abraham Lincoln, one of the most famous Christian Nationalists ever, meant to be entirely dedicated to thanking God for our country and praying God’s guidance for her future. If that’s not domestic terrorism, I don’t know what is.”

    After a bit of shuffling, Agent Schwartz reported that the Graham family had, in fact, said a prayer and started eating turkey. “We’ve got three generations of terrorists present – maybe four, that old terrorist on the walker is moving slow,” said Agent Schwartz. “Sure is sad to see the little ones getting indoctrinated like this. Next thing you know, that baby will be storming the Capitol, mark my words.”

    At publishing time, Grandma Graham has reportedly gone outside to ask the weirdo with the binoculars if he would like to come in for some pie.”
    “Scholars Believe Overflow Crowd Watched Sermon On The Mount Via Jumbotron”
    CHURCH · Nov 22, 2022 · BabylonBee.com

    “CAPERNAUM — New evidence suggests that some of the people present at Jesus Christ’s famous Sermon on the Mount had to sit in an overflow section on the eastern side of the mount where a large jumbotron screen had been set up.

    Writings from the period indicate that many were irritated at having to view the Son of God from a large screen, in some cases lamenting that their spouses had made them late.

    “Maybe if she did not adorn herself like the finely arrayed daughters of Babylon we could have left earlier,” wrote an irritated Galilean. Fragments of his discourse are quoted by the Jewish historian Josephus in his work Antiquities of the Jews.

    Newly uncovered writings from the first-century Roman historian Tacitus say: “During the reign of Tiberius there was set up a large screen from which Christus could be viewed speaking beatitudes. Visio-Magna is reckoned to have stood 87 cubitum. King Herod was denied this power. Sad.”

    Archeologists working in the area believe that the Church of the Beatitudes was built over the jumbotron, which they believe was without seam, woven whole from the top throughout. Unfortunately, it is the prevailing historical view is that the overflow was too bummed about their seating to appreciate what was likely the first jumbotron ever invented.

    In addition, the apostle Thaddeus, who scholars believe served as the sound guy for the event, reportedly received the brunt of the crowd’s scorn.”

  25. EXCERPT: “Goodbye Sars-Cov-2”
    47 MIN AGO

    ENTIRE ARTICLE: “Some happy news this Thanksgiving: Three years after the first atypical pneumonia patients started showing up at hospitals in Wuhan, looks like we can officially put the novel coronavirus behind us. After crashing in the spring, Sars-Cov-2 deaths have remained a rounding error worldwide ever since, about 1 percent of total deaths. And they continue to fall. Sars-Cov-2 is now roughly as big a killer worldwide as esophageal cancer.

    In other words, six months of warnings (and demands for boosters) from public health experts have proven wrong. Shocker! Not because of the vaccines, either. Whether based on novel or existing biotechnology, the shots proved mostly useless within months (thus the huge bump in cases and deaths in January 2022, after more than 10 billion doses had been distributed globally).

    But nature – in the form of viral evolution – appears to have done what we couldn’t. The Omicron variant infected anyone and everyone, and after a bump last winter, Omicron ultimately sharply reduced Covid deaths and hospitalizations.

    The decline in deaths almost certainly occurred both because Omicron is less dangerous and because it generates a full-spectrum immune response, including anti-N antibodies, that the vaccines did not. Thus reinfections become less and less serious even as the virus continues to circulate. In other words, as predicted, Sars-Cov-2 became more transmissible and less dangerous. Viruses gonna virus.

    So how bad was it? From November 2020 to November 2023, Sars-Cov-2 killed 6.6 million people, fewer than 1 in 1000 worldwide and under 4 percent of all deaths over the three-year-span. (Meanwhile, all-cause mortality in the mRNA countries continues to click along at 15 percent above normal, but that’s another story.)

    The average age of death was 80, give or take. They don’t make plagues like they used to.”

  26. hmmmm…so SCOTUS allows release of REALPOTUS’s tax returns…but the Teasury Dept changed policies and NOW are not allowing the SARSof the ultra maggot to be released…how convenient…
    “The Department of Treasury is in possession of at least 150 Suspicious Activity Reports (SARs) related to Biden family members’ financial transactions,” the Republican report states. “Despite numerous formal requests by Committee Republicans to review those SARs, and despite
    decades of precedent of Treasury making SARs available pursuant to congressional requests, the Biden Administration changed longstanding policy and now refuses to produce Biden family SARs or to make them available for Committee Republican investigators’ in camera review.”

  27. RIP: CBS NEWS (1927-2022)
    The news network was comatose for years but now its rot has filled everyone’s nostrils

    EXCERPT: “The decline and fall of CBS News has been something to watch in recent years. The network was founded in 1927, and just recently passed away from pure stupidity.

    The exact cause of the illness that finally brought down CBS News was the Hunter Biden laptop story. Here’s CBS News in 2020 telling its audience that the contents of Hunter Biden’s laptop isn’t real — it’s disinformation.”
