I always make turkey breasts for Thanksgiving—one on Thanksgiving and one the day after Thanksgiving, because I rarely have leftovers.  Let me just say it up front—I do NOT like leftovers—hubby’s okay with them and always eats any leftovers, but Thanksgiving is a whole other animal!  The day after Thanksgiving, my family is up for another round of the same meal.  Rather than make double on Thanksgiving, I am more open to making the entire meal again…today.

Happy We-Don’t-Have-Leftovers Day!

JUST FOR FUN: If you’re not into Black Friday shopping and want something to do while eating your leftovers, here’s a takeoff from an Insta-Quiz from AARP:

Second to Last

“A” is the last letter of the most state names, 21 of them. (Without looking them up) name the 21 states.

AND, for good measure…

The letter in second place ends the names of 5 states.  What’s that letter??

LOL – I’ve got a shit-load of leftover ham for the next couple of days, the freezer and bean soup, as well as some sweet potatoes, both of which I will eat for days!

    The Manhattan D.A. Case should never have been brought. The D.A.’s “Star” witness, who has been harassed and brutalized, and is scared beyond belief, has nevertheless totally confirmed our story and defense. This case should be dismissed immediately, and the large, highly paid and “prestigious” accounting firm that we RELIED on to do their job, but didn’t, should pay us a fortune in damages. No “Fringe Benefits” case like this has ever been brought before. A total Witch Hunt!

  5. “I just talked to embalmer Richard Hirschman about the reaction from Died Suddenly — No interest from the fact checkers or mainstream media on what was presented. What a surprise :)”

    Steve Kirsch
    13 hr ago

    ENTIRE ARTICLE: “I just got off the phone with embalmer Richard Hirschman who is featured in the film, Died Suddenly: If you haven’t seen the whole film, please take just 14 minutes and watch between minutes 6 and 20.

    Richard told me that:

    1. Nobody from the mainstream media is interested in covering the story. No calls. He’s lonelier than the Maytag repairman.

    2. No fact checker has contacted him about the movie.

    3. He’s been attacked. The doctors, who have no evidence whatsoever, have determined that these are just regular blood clots and the hundreds of embalmers that say they’ve never seen anything like these clots before are all lying.

    4. There is no motivation for the embalmers to lie. The vaccine is good for their business. By speaking out, they will reduce their business and run the risk of having their licenses revoked. So why are they lying?

    5. Richard related the story of people in a hospital talking about the movie. One of the doctors said, “This is just a conspiracy theory.” Another doctor said, “No it isn’t. I know one of the embalmers and I’ve seen this first hand. It’s legit.” The response was, “We aren’t allowed to talk about that” and then they changed the topic.

    I’m going to shift my ad campaign to focusing on the clots. Hundreds of embalmers are seeing these clots in over half the patients who die. If the clots are not due to the vaccine, then what is causing them? That will be the question we’ll ask in our ads in local newspapers, TV, radio, and billboards.

    Maybe someone will enlighten us.”

  6. “Answering the critics of “Died Suddenly” — I respond to a critic and a “fact checker.” You get to decide who is telling you the truth.” Steve Kirsch 10 hr ago

    ENTIRE ARTICLE: “The critic, Eric Burnett, MD says there is nothing to see here: these are just regular post-mortem blood clots. You can watch his video here:

    Then you can read the rebuttal I just got from Ryan Cole, MD and decide for yourself who is telling you the truth and who is lying to you. Please ask Dr. Burnett if he will accept Dr. Cole’s invitation to resolve the matter. He will never accept the invitation.

    Dr. Cole’s response to Dr. Burnett doesn’t pull any punches:

    Eric Burnett, MD is an internist, not a pathologist, nor mortician. The arrogance of inferring that a mortician, a professional, beyond his experience, cannot make a valid observation beyond his own naïveté, is the epitome of hubris. He has likely seen one or two autopsies in his entire career. He has not seen, observed, nor described countless post mortem clots. A gelatinous saddle embolus is “apples to oranges” compared to these post “clot shot” death clots. He has never embalmed a body. He is entirely and exceedingly out of his lane. Post mortem, rubbery clots are as rare as hen’s teeth. He is likely covering his “gene injection” pushing ass. Morticians did not have trouble cannulating and embalming bodies prior to the jabs. He is acting as a bloviating, pharma, financial and hospital administrator defending shill, having zero experience, nor idea of what he speaks.

    Something is overwhelmingly wrong with the “clot shot.” If he were half awake, his conjecture would not be reflecting the myopic view of the inside of his inexperienced anus. With a modicum of humility, he might acknowledge alarming rates of excess deaths in the hyper injected, young and healthy and see the actual harm of failed gene based experimental injections, that have maimed and killed hundreds of thousands to millions.

    Having performed countless career autopsies, examined dozens of these novel clots, extensively explored the spike protein clotting mechanisms, diagnosed over 500,000 patients through the microscope, in my extensive career, I invite my colleague, Dr. Burnett, and any colleague, from around the world, to sit at my microscope, and observe the truth, and set aside their purchased pride. The cells don’t lie!!!

    Honor the dead who speak loudly. Stop fantasizing that you can ever vaccinate ahead of an always mutating coronavirus, especially with a “variant expired” investigational gene product. Honor your oath to “first do no harm,” instead of hiding behind an uninformed ego, shaded with harmfully naïve, humanity destroying pride.

    The fact checker — Here’s the “fact check”

    The “fact check” says:

    1. In the video montage of people who died suddenly, there is no information on some of these people that they were vaccinated. And there is no PROOF that the vaccine CAUSED the death.

    2. The quote from Gates was taken out of context.

    He’s right on both points!

    1. It would be more convincing if the fact checker could rule out the vaccine in the cause of these deaths. But he does not.

    2. I’ve personally heard Gates express his rationale for how the vaccine reduces population growth (the argument is that families will need to have fewer kids because more will survive).

    He missed one too which I will point out: the footage shown at 47:45 of a man falling off a chair near his long desk is not recent. That footage came out in early Jan. 2020. I’m sure there are other errors. And I think the implications of this being a conspiracy to depopulate the planet is not well supported.

    The big point is that our “fact checker” conveniently ignores the primary claim about the embalmers. That’s the meat of the story here. Over 100 embalmers are seeing “never before seen” clots only in people who have been vaccinated or received blood transfusions. The embalmers I’ve talked to are seeing these clots in over half the deaths. The fact check is silent on the major point of the movie. There’s a reason for that: there is no way to refute it or provide an alternate explanation. So they hope that their fact check will cause you to avoid watching the film by focusing on parts that are less convincing.

    Summary — The embalmer observations are not debatable. Anyone who tries to debunk it will fail. The cells don’t lie. This is why no mainstream media reporter will touch this story and why Dr. Burnett will never accept Dr. Cole’s kind offer.”

    1. Dr. Ryan Cole runs a large forensic pathology chain – and has talked about the increase in cancers and other diseases post-vax.

      “With HIV you lose your helper T cells, your CD4 cells. In this virus post-vaccine, what we’re seeing is a drop in your killer T cells, your CD8 cells. And what do CD8 cells do? They keep all other viruses in check.”

      Dr Cole said that in his laboratory he has been seeing a sharp uptick in the herpes family of viruses, as well as shingles, mono and human papillomavirus (HPV) in the cervical biopsies and pap smears of women.

  7. “Biden endorses G20 Declaration to censor “disinformation” — While facing a censorship lawsuit.”
    By Christina Maas on Substack
    Posted 3:45 pm November 24, 2022

    ENTIRE ARTICLE: “During the summit held in Bali, Indonesia, the G20 Leaders signed a declaration endorsing the censorship of “disinformation.” The Biden administration endorsed the declaration by publishing it on the White House website. The G20 Bali Leaders’ Declaration mainly focused on climate change, including Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). However, the leaders have linked SDGs with online censorship.

    Section 24 of the declaration says there is a need to censor online disinformation. “The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the transformation of the digital ecosystem and digital economy,” the section began. “We recognize the importance of digital transformation in reaching the SDGs.”

    It adds that for there to be “trust in the digital economy,” they should “create an enabling, inclusive, open, fair and non-discriminatory digital economy that fosters the application of new technologies, allows businesses and entrepreneurs to thrive, and protects and empowers consumers.”

    The G20 leaders believe there is a need to censor “false” information for digital infrastructure to thrive: “We acknowledge the importance to counter disinformation campaigns, cyber threats, online abuse, and ensuring security in connectivity infrastructure.”

    The White House endorsing a declaration that calls for more censorship is not surprising considering it is the subject of the lawsuit filed by Missouri’s and Louisiana’s Attorneys General alleging collusion between the government and social media companies to censor viewpoints surrounding Covid and more.”

  8. EXCERPT: “The censorship on the platform followed a situation where, at Foxconn’s largest iPhone factory in Central China, protests erupted over COVID-19 restrictions at the factory. Foxconn, headquartered in Taiwan, is the world’s largest electronics manufacturing contractor, and Apple’s main subcontractor.
    Foxconn recorded a surge in Covid at its Zhengzhou site (also called iPhone city) and responded by closing off the site to contain the spread of the virus. The site, which has about 200,000 workers, is now operating in a “closed loop” bubble.

    Videos posted on Weibo show hundreds of workers marching in broad daylight as they are confronted by riot police and people wearing hazmat suits. Another video showed an overturned vehicle and a Covid testing booth that had been destroyed. Another video recorded at night showed a bloodied man as someone else off the camera says: “They’re hitting people, hitting people. Do they have a conscience?”

  9. One of my mottos is – It’s not leftovers if you make a new dish out of it. I’ve been known to make crepes with sherry and mushrooms from leftover KFC.

    One of my rules is of household management to never throw away food – eat it up – use it up – don’t waste grocery money if at all possible. I love soups and usually have beef and broth, chicken and broth, ham broth, ready to make soup – as well as small containers of homemade soup ready to heat in the freezer.

    The first cookbook I ever owned was Potluck Cookery by Beverly Pepper – ©1955. My Mama ordered it for me from the Book of the Month club, I think.

    Might still be available on Abebooks.com

    Since she was a working single mom, and I liked cooking, I started cooking our meals most weekdays at age 13 or so. She taught me (most times, over the phone from her office in town) how to make delicious hash, pot pies and casseroles from the leftover Sunday roast beef.

    This cute little paperback taught me a lot about making new dishes from whatever you have at hand – leftovers, etc.

    It was also a beginner’s education in basic cookery and how/when/where to use which herbs and seasonings.

    One of the sections was labeled “Nothing in the house but…”

        – stuffing and gravy
        – turkey
        – more gravy
        – surprise
        – cranberry sauce
        – green bean and pea casserole
        – sweet potato casserole
        – more stuffing and gravy!

    1. We always had someone bring a green bean casserole but it’s not something I ever ate. Turkey, potatoes/gravy, sweet spuds, corn, peas…..and of course the obligatory relish tray, with sweet Gherkins, cream cheese-filled celery sticks, carrot sticks, green/black olives, green onions. Canned cranberry sauce. Brown-n-serve rolls with butter. That was more than enough for me!!!

    “COVID, Twitter, the Jabs & Lives Saved” — Tom Renz — 14 min ago

    ENTIRE ARTICLE: “I love Truth Social. Good people, open minds, and a willingness to look at real data. There is even respectful discourse and people that can disagree without being disagreeable. Those novel and wonderful qualities make my experience there enjoyable but I’ve had to spend substantially more time recently, on a platform I’ve never actually used until recently… Twitter.

    As nearly anyone that will read this will know, I have spent nearly every waking minute for the last two and a half years fighting against COVID lies and misinformation. No, not the actual science that corrupt fact checkers call conspiracy theory (I discuss a bit of that from Politifact here), the actual lies promulgated by the mainstream media and our federal (and many state) governments. This fight has been tough and, because of the corruption and censorship by our mainstream media and big tech, has broken down into a lot of “preaching to the choir” where I’ve been sharing info with people already awake. Twitter is no changing the paradigm.

    I do not know Elon Musk and have a wait and see attitude towards what he is doing but for now, he does appear to be opening up free speech on Twitter. This has created an incredible opportunity for me to share inarguable information with a lot of good people that are simply to “mainstream” to have heard the truth from other sources. Since bit tech and the legacy media have all been promoting lies in lockstep, unless you were willing to dig deep to find the truth about COVID, hospital protocols, early treatment, or the jabs, you just would not hear it. Now, Musk’s steps to allow free speech, are allowing me and others to reach many people that would not have been reachable otherwise.

    The most telling aspect of the potential impact that Musk’s actions could have is the meltdown by the people that have controlled the situation and perpetrated these lies for the last almost 3 years (remember 14 days to flatten the curve?). The terror from the Fauci cultists is palpable which leads to the natural question, why? My experience as someone that argues for a living is that, when truth is on my side, most arguments are easy to win and quickly discredit the other side. If the Fauci cult has nothing to hide why would they fear engaging “conspiracy theorists” like me in the arena of free and open debate? I think that answer become quite clear when you look at the reports I’ve put out here and here (amongst others) showing the lies they’ve been pushing using their own documents and first-hand witnesses.

    At the end of the day I don’t know how far Twitter will go towards allowing true free speech but even the small opening in the iron curtain of censorship we have now is having a huge impact. For anyone seeing this that does not know about my work or history in this, I challenge you to take a look with an open mind. I have self funded most of my work despite being a solidly middle-class American. The total income for my entire law firm for the past three years of this fight is well under a million dollars – compare that to the people I’m fighting that have made hundreds of billions. I’m not in this for the money – I’m in it for truth. Look at my record and my work, look at the whistleblowers I’ve brought forth, and recognize that everything I’ve done has been done by a nobody from a small town in Ohio. Now ask yourself, who has a better reason to lie to the public – the nobody that has been crucified in the press or the billionaires that have made billions more?

    I’m grateful to Musk for giving me an opportunity to make this point to people that have not heard it. I have no idea whether he is legit in his position but I’m ecstatic to have an opportunity to allow people to hear the truth that have not yet heard it. More importantly, I’m happy to have the chance to save lives by making people aware of the information they were not hearing. For that, I thank Elon Musk and hope he continues down the path of freedom.”

  14. “Jordanian national accused of rape at French hospital had 13 different identities and was subject to 3 expulsion orders — He still had a request for asylum pending at the time of the attack”

    November 25, 2022
    editor: REMIX NEWS author: THOMAS BROOKE

    ENTIRE ARTICLE: “A Jordanian national arrested on suspicion of raping a patient at a Parisian hospital last month was known under 13 different identities and had already ignored three orders to leave French territory, it has emerged.

    The attack took place in the early hours of Oct. 28 at the Cochin hospital in Paris, when the 22-year-old suspect, who was a patient at the facility, allegedly attacked a 34-year-old female patient who had been admitted to the emergency room with a head trauma.

    French newspaper Le Figaro reported that at approximately 4 a.m., a nurse interrupted the suspect who was raping his victim with his fingers while she slept. The suspect fled the scene upon arrival of the nurse. In a press release, the APHP hospital trust confirmed the suspect had been “present in the emergency rooms as a patient being treated.” “He was seen leaving the victim’s room by the service staff,” the press release adds, whose attempts to apprehend the suspect were unsuccessful.

    The male was arrested by authorities shortly after 5 a.m. not far from the hospital in the 14th arrondissement of the capital; according to Le Parisien, he was found to be carrying the victim’s credit card. According to Le Figaro, the suspect had been subject to three separate obligations to leave French territory (OQTF) under three different identities. He still had a request for asylum pending at the time of the attack.

    However, BFMTV reported on Thursday that the Jordanian national was known to law enforcement under a total of 13 different identities. According to the hospital trust and the General Confederation of Labour (CGT) union, an investigation has been launched to ascertain how such an attack was allowed to take place.

    CGT slammed a recent extension of the Cochin emergency department that took place “without an increase in staff, which further isolates staff and patients,” while the hospital trust confirmed “a precise analysis of the chronology of events is underway internally in order to shed light on the precise circumstances of this attack.”
