Where are all the women? I was at my mom's last week and she had some MSM channel and the talking head was talking about the 'migrants' in NYC. I told her our country is being invaded, this is not what they are showing on TV - somewhere they dredged up footage large family groups coming across the border, complete with closeups of cute children. I said - mom, the majority of the influx is military aged men, NOT families. Her response? I am so disappointed that you have no compassion for these people. Tried to show her the video outside the NYC hotel and she refused to watch it. Question is how many others are clueless? And do they vote?

Unfortunately, as expected. When the USG Communists take military action against the American people, they will do it under the guise of the UN using these "imported" troops. In reality, they are terrorists for the Bolsheviks with blue helmets and they will be used against us by our own government.

Today, America would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government. —Henry A. Kissinger

Well, resident Peter's did say we would need more than AR15's to go up against his government. That's who we will be at war with, not some other country. But rest assured, resident Peter's already knows they have all the backing they need from the UN, all the 3 letter agencies, and probably most, if not close to all our very own military. Some of those weapons sent to Ukraine are probably holed up somewhere here to be used against us by their illegal alien recruits. I don't trust ANYONE within our governments. If politicians aren't speaking loudly against all the corruption, then they are in it. DeSantis is weak, he throws out tidbits of crumbs to appear he is on it, but does nothing.

it is unbelievable that some states allow voting without showing identification. When I first read this I thought they were mistaken. I live in GA and here there is quite a decent control for voting.

My adult disabled daughter prints her signature. She voted by mail in 2020. We got a phone call after she mailed in her vote concerned about signature. We had to go into office and she had to redo her vote and show ID. At least the Florida panhandle is doing something right....at least once.

Ingrid, it probably was a 'U.S. thing,' until it wasn't, thanks to the communist takeover of some state governments.

Our (NC) photo ID requirement is riddled with loop holes around actually having to show photo ID!

SB - However, the NC ID law has so many loopholes in it. In lieu of i.d. prospective voters with no i.d. can checkmark various waivers along the lines of "applied for i.d. but it's in the mail" or "religious exemption" - there are about 7 or 8 equally fluid excuses for not providing an i.d. at the time of voting.

In Illinois, as a poll watcher which you really should volunteer to do choose your own place and hours, we have registration on the DAY, if they show ID that matches a physical address with a bill mailed to them in the past six? months then they can vote. Mail in voters are supposedly denied. If the system goes down, which it did several times and once for over an hour, besides ALL the time it took to REGISTER ALL THE NEW VOTERS in this BIG UNIVERSITY town then who knows what's happening.

I do not like the machine voting at all. Back in Belgium 20 years ago it was still all on paper, check before you vote etc. No messing there. Voting is obligatory when you are a belgian citizen and immigrants had to pay extra if they wanted voting rights. But now my family says it is all machine too. No idea if the other laws changed, but non voters are no longer emprisoned. Probably not even persecuted.

When I went last time the machine here in small town GA went down twice while I was in there (about 15 minutes). So there is a big no-no. Back to paper voting and indeed, lots of checkers from both sides. I think new voters have to register at least a few months before voting. Got my citizenship in August and was urged to register right there and then, which I did.

Not much has changed since Rome LOL

Green card holders are NOT citizens. If they are allowed to have driver's licenses, are they marked as non-citizens? I honestly don't know much about who is given a "green card." I'm in CA... and Grabin Newssolini is all about this sort of criminality.

I believe we MUST get someone in the Oval Office in 2024, who will begin and follow through with a mass round up and deportation. It seems that might be our only way to be safe in our own country.

Naturally, many will evade such an action. But huge numbers would be run out... and those remaining would likely be less confrontive.

I don't know if this is the difference, but before I became a citizen my driver's licence number was my social security number. I was advized to go for a new driver's licence that did not show my ss number. But this might just be random. It is making me angry to see how much trouble I had to go through to become legal (refused once, paperwork redone, then office 'misplaced' my test and had to wait more than a year from test to ceremony, for some present it took only 6 weeks) and moneywise - cross the border cost nothing - doing all and everything including 2 sleepover since I had to be there so early - almost 3000 $

Compassion only goes so far.

Poor cats of all ages and health—- are stuck in shelters, “Cue “IN THE ARMS of an ANGEL”, so a lady gets 4 out of the terrible shelter, moves them into her home and acclimates them. It’s precious and kind. Weeks later, she gets 6 more, then 7 more, then one she got has 9 kittens, then she gets several

more. She can’t help herself, she’s so compassionate; she gets a dozen more. Everything is great except she can’t really give each of them attention, several are fighting among themselves,

she lugs home loads of cat food and is starting not to bother with litter and vets. Sooner or later, she has 66 cats, her entire home is one big litter box. sans litter, food has to be supplemented with cats killing birds. Several have dragged baby rabbits and even snakes into her home. There are so many cats in her bed, she feels guilty knocking them off to sleep so she’s taken to sleeping in a chair. The lady has a chronic cough due to the dander and litter. Her home, clothing & hair smells like ammonia and poop. Her family has become deeply

concerned. The cats are wild and discontented but she compassionate.

😝 I hear ya. We had 3 cats, 3 kids, 2 dogs and 3 horses for years. My daughters had rabbits, too. We saved 3 from a bunch of guys living in trailers and sheds with orange cords going all over from a main house. The sign said, “RABBI’S for SELL!” ✡️ I HAD to see for myself whether rabbis were in fact, being sold. 😝 The rabbits were stacked on top of one another in cages like 4/6 cages high, NO water, no feed, 90°, a dozen rabbit skins hanging on a clothesline. Sadly our cats and a hawk got them, but their lives were magical for weeks after our compassionate rescue. Turns out, hawks are quicker than kids running inside to go potty and, to continue the previous analogy, cats aren’t always as kind and deserving of compassion as they appear. (Ours KNEW we loved those poor rabbits!) I dare say the same goes for illegals.

My youngest sister had a rabbit as a kid, and a stray dog jumped the backyard fence and got it. Very traumatic for her, she was 8 and saw it out the window. As an adult she fostered them as part of a rescue society for many years. They are cute, but are destructive, they chew on anything they can if you keep them indoors. Hard pass for me. And yes, cats and wild rabbits are not a great mix. I got a hysterical call from my kids when they were teenagers, they let one of our cats in not realizing he had a baby rabbit in his mouth, bleeding out.

Yep, we’ve had numerous squealing baby rabbits and other creatures dragged in to us by our cats. We sealed our cat door long ago (cat doors seem like a grand idea. Nope.) When we go out of town, the superior hunters leave one squirrel on each and every welcome mat by each and every door to the

home as if to say, “Please come home and never leave again. We promise we will bring more vittles.”

move. They had loads of sticks and wicker things we bought him to chew which no doubt helped and they had an entire guest room and tunnel to two of our kids’ rooms. Overall, they were better pets than a few of the cats we’ve had over the years and far better than the Cairn Terrior—aka Cairn Terror. HE dug more holes in my flower beds and chewed up furniture legs like they were sticks.

Yes, pets are both a joy and a hassle. I am known to tell mine 'it's a good thing you are cute'.....

Even we, in a rural Iowan small town, have had at least 2 bus loads of all healthy and fit looking men dropped off in our community. I personally witnessed one. They all went into our local grocery store from their bus. A new hotel is being built here as for some reason our two, that have never been full for all these years, isn’t enough for a town of 3000 with no attractions or unique events. It’s getting hard not to be fearful. I always see at least a dozen men buying groceries together each time I go to either of the stores we have- and I don’t go very often. A 100% encounter rate of that sort is not good. And it’s not confined to our town, it’s going on in all the small communities here, in addition to the somewhat larger ones. Do you think they are purposefully infiltrating the rural communities that are staunchly conservative? This started a year and a half ago.

WOW! That is scary. I am in a red turning purple suburb and say the same thing about the breakneck pace at which apartment buildings are going up all over my city as well as the larger metro. Where are the people who are going to live in these places going to come from?! Our suburb has been growing but the greater Metro has seen very modest growth the last decade, although I do know 3 CA refugees (all conservatives fortunately) who have moved here to escape that madness. So far not seeing any evidence like yours, although I am staying away from the larger city as much as possible due to big increases in crime. My daughter in law was grazed by a bullet while driving home from an entertainment district just last week, granted it was 1:00 AM but she and her friends have no idea where it came from. She was driving, bullet grazed her arm and hit her friend in the passenger seat's middle finger, surgeons couldn't save it, and had to amputate. Thank God it was not worse, but scary nonetheless.

Terrible story Donna. I'm sure those girls were traumatized. It seems like the illegals are infiltrating every nook and cranny of the continent. We obviously can not physically do much as individuals but what we can do is stay out of fear and do the things that bring joy to our lives. Raising our individual vibration by being in nature and staying away from fear promoting media of all kinds is helpful. Faith that goodness and love wins is a mantra to keep in mind.

Yes I think they would likely target small towns with illegals. They are targeting small towns with tranny drag shows. We have family in Texas that are witness to this.

All about the virtue signaling. I am sure the moral superiority she FEELS trumps any truth that leaks out. I am coming around to thinking that the thing that ties all these sheep together is their propensity to lead with emotion as their primary guide. I get that we all get caught in that trap from time to time, but it's why traditional wisdom is to 'sleep on it' before making a big decision. Emotion clouds critical thought.

She is in one of those retirement communities that are popping up like mushrooms all over our city and the greater KC metro. I look at the demographics - yes there is a huge influx of boomers heading into these places, mom was on a waiting list for months. But what happens to all of these places in 10-15 years? New landing spots for the 'unhoused' or 'the migrants'?

My Mom was in one of those, and my SIL runs one - both high-end. Biggest problem? Finding people to work there. Most employees not doing admin work are (legal) immigrants. The women from the islands (trinidad, haiti, etc) were lovely and caring. Few workers from the local black population (Philly). FWIW.

Expand full comment

Yes, same with mom's place, although the help they can get are all white or black English speaking people. Had a lot of college students over the Summer but have struggled to replace them now that school is back in session. They've managed to keep CNA and nursing positions staffed (never had a jab requirement, I am friends with one of the nurses who started working there when the hospital she was at put a jab mandate in place), but dining room not unusual to wait 30+ minutes for her food as dining room is perpetually short staffed. When she was in a NH for rehab late last year though, there were a number of Caribbean immigrants on staff there, though, and they were much better than the non-immigrant staff, who were lazy and had an attitude.

It's frustrating as she is so wedded to the idea that she is a D; when actually many of her views are completely at odds with today's D party. She is pro-life, pro police, and fights her doc over taking any new RX drugs as she 'doesn't trust pharmaceutical companies'. But she got the first 2 shots!?! Thank goodness her PCP told her not to get any more since she had a lot of skin reactions after the first 2. Called me ranting about one of the nurses in her assisted living community complaining about having to start paying her loans back again. Mom was like, she borrowed the money, she needs to shut up and pay it back. But God help me if I say anything positive about Trump in her midst....crazy times we are in for sure!

Your mom, Donna, is the exact opposite of my 96 year old mom. We just talked yesterday. She lives independently in Northern California and told me she is worried with all the fighting aged brown men coming over the border illegally. She said "it is just a matter of time before something really bad happens because of this invasion." Yes! And...where are all the women? I have been asking this for 2 years. All I can do is pray.

Too bad we can't get the 2 of them together! Mom is mentally sharp, physically she is mess though, between arthritis, poor balance, and too many hours sitting watching the Hallmark channel she can't live on her own. Sadly, many of her compatriots at the place she is living now are the opposite. They get around fine, but mentally heading towards the memory care wing. Has a few acquaintances but none who pay a bit of attention to current events. She reads the local lefty rag cover to cover every day. But think a conservative friend or 2 might help move the needle. She will not listen to me as she says I am in the Trump cult.

You can gift her a paper copy of The Epoch Times. ♥

Maybe anonymously gift that Epoch Times subscription as @SadieJay suggests. When you visit, don't say anything for a while. After a couple of months, if it's not on the bottom of the bird cage, when you finally notice a copy 😉, ask, What's this? As if you've never heard of it before. Etc. You might even hear something surprising first. Unless, even if there's no bird, you pick up on the great instant recycling. 😏

Just a thought.

Expand full comment

She has actually gotten occasional free copies in the mail as they probably buy the list of the local rag's subscriber base. She read through the first one, and then next time I was over there, gave it to me and said, I am not reading this 'right wing crap'. But to her credit she didn't throw it away. She saves me the copies she gets though, but tells me she won't read them. I sometimes print off stories and leave them laying in her pile of reading material, and will later ask if she read them. Usually says she has been 'too busy' although she has said she is not getting any shots this year, so a little progress. But the TDS is strong, anything praising him sets her off in a blind rage.

Oh well. It was a thought. --

My mom won't read anything outside of her regular routine - - print version of legacy city rag. Rigidity possibly attributable to spectrum disorder, high functioning Aspie-ish. Never diagnosed. (Only by me. 😅 I have a sibling there + NPD, neither condition diagnosed except by me. This is a truly nasty person. Thankfully I have friends who also have narcis-sisters and a cousin divorced from a narcissist. They know I'm not exaggerating when I report behaviors.) Mom's 92 so I cut her all the slack she needs. Not worth confrontation at this stage. Some people will never wake up. --

Therefore the theory in woo space, backed up by quantum physics, that speaks to parallel realities. The New Earth existing side by side with the old, current paradigm earth. New Earth people will exist and live with their hearts in the lead, cooperating instead of competing, etc. Those stuck in the old will continue to hold old paradigm thinking which reveres the servant mind above the true self heart master, material gain over the rewards of spirit, etc. The two worlds can view each other, sort of like a movie screen, but not be of each other, even if for example two from the two worlds are 4 feet away from each other in the grocery store. Or even if your cashier with whom you might interact is in the old earth. It's quantum. Haven't quite wrapped my mind around it, or figured out how it works with governments, from local to national. I'm aware and grieving that I have to let go of whatever might bind me to the old. I sure don't want to stay there. Letting go is hard. Especially of children, now adult. I'm lucky I have always viewed them as individuals on their own journeys, never extensions of myself. The grief may never end. I've had a lot of practice at it, though, so know that even if it doesn't go away, it changes. And it changes me. That old adage, the mill grinds hard but very, very fine. --

Don't know if any of the foregoing odd-sounding, quantum-referenced premise has drifted into your world. This author has a unique viewpoint (don't we all?). Sample:

The As If... post is so true! "The difference in perception between the rabbit-hole dwellers and the normies has gotten to the point where it’s truly daunting to bridge the ‘realities’."

Letting go IS hard, but then so is staying.

And the awake are in places you don't expect. Like my dental hygienist yesterday, or the woman who cut my hair last week. A guy in a waiting area who just moved to MO from CA also last week. Just a few key words and we were comparing rabbit holes.

Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need of anything to be written to you. For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman who is pregnant, and they will never escape. But you, brothers, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief, for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be awake and sober. For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation. For God has not appointed us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him. Therefore, comfort one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.

— 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 LSB
