“Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f--- things up.”

The PTB installed Sleepy Joe as the perfect president to bring down America. I felt physically ill when he was "elected" because I believed he'd destroy this country as fast as he can.

Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have become partakers of Christ, if we hold fast the beginning of our assurance firm until the end[.]

— Hebrews 3:12-14 NASB1995

“Always be of good cheer”

I love that phrase, I love hearing it, even the sound of it is encouraging and uplifting simply because it reminds of the words from the master of life Himself

“Be of good cheer for I have overcome the world”

Absolutely stunning !!!

From Armstrong Economics twitter feed: "Becker sold about $3.57 million worth of SVB stock over the past two weeks and is now making TV appearances saying he did not see this coming....Tons of people and businesses will be completely screwed over. Who could have seen it coming? Silicon Valley Bank CEO, CFO, and CMO sold off millions in stock over the past two weeks."

Obviously, this is illegal. All that money should be clawed back and given to small depositors. Then there needs to be a criminal investigation, all the way to the top.

The cynical among us might point out that our nation's top three bank failures happened while Joseph Robinette Biden held either the highest or second-highest political office in the country, perhaps casting blame and aspersions upon poor old notorious JRB. The even more cynical among us will point out that perhaps it's not a bug, it's a feature. "Never let a crisis go to waste", said Rahm Emmanuel. One could even create a crisis and leverage it to do things heretofore impossible. Doesn't congress control the purse? Ha!, stupid peasant, the global government controls the purse.

Jeff, I absolutely loved your presentation at the conference! It was so encouraging. I wish my church was willing to have people speak on covid/vaccine/tyranny issues. As for today's topics, I was so happy to read that the bailout of the banks will not cost us taxpayers anything. Amazing how our government can do that.

🗨 In an unalloyed capitalist system, money flows to those who offer goods and services of value to consumers. In a political capitalism system, money flows to special-interest groups with friends in high places.

They say it all the time, but watching this administration do anything is like watching a toddler play with a loaded gun

Jeff, I enjoyed your talk at the Steeling the Mind Bible Conference in Idaho! I respectfully take exception to one comment - that Catholics don’t read the Bible! Catholics “read the Bible” in a three-year cycle at Sunday Mass readings and in a two-year cycle in daily Mass, from both the Old Testament and New Testament. There are countless well known Bible studies like https://ascensionpress.com/collections/the-bible-timeline-the-story-of-salvation including The Bible in a Year with Fr. Mike Schmitz as well as Bible studies in many Catholic parishes and homes. Here's a good explanation from someone who grew up in an independent fundamentalist church: https://cruxnow.com/faith/2015/11/why-dont-catholics-read-the-bible

This is a time of clearing and culling. We just have to wait it out with resistance, faith and common sense! All three have been in very short supply for many!

"At times like these, one soberly contemplates Obama’s prophetic 2020 assessment, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f--- things up.”...

I don't think it has ever occurred to anyone that Obama's statement was, in his mind, the BEST reason for picking Biden to be his puppet in the White House.... Just saying...

Nice round-up, counselor. A couple of minor addenda to your "government-fueled disaster flow chart"

1.a. crash the economy by locking everything down for covid

1.b. flood the zone with 'helicopter cash' under the guise of 'relief' (specifically EIP and PPP)

3.a. distort the labor market by (i) imposing jab mandates that (ii) adversely impact the working population

3.b. ...wait for inflation to kick in...

“A blogger has to move fast these days, to keep up with all the Einstein-like intellects infesting the nation’s capital. Their brains move so much faster than everyone else’s. Or — as a possible alternative — they have no idea what they are doing and just lie all the time, take your pick.”

💯% Liars, definitely lie all the time.
