Being alone never feels quite so acute as it does on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas. Whether you're alone-alone or alone-with-your-spouse, it's painful to see all those staged Facebook photos and imagine everyone else feasting, chatting and actually enjoying spending time with their big, happy families when your home is so quiet, by fate or by choice.
I know exactly how you feel. For 20+ years, my family's holidays were Norman Rockwell's Freedom from Want on steroids. Picture perfect. Everyone acting like they actually liked each other.
But sometimes the quietest family member is the only one holding the family together. When Grandpa quietly died in 2000, well, truth-will-out. My uncle finally got to kick his sister (my mom) to the curb. One thing led to another and today Michael and I find ourselves alone together each holiday...because we won't put up with the toxic, personality disordered, pathological lying and abuse of our families by birth/by law anymore. Not even for one miserable holiday.
Even though we have each other, there's still a feeling of aloneness that hurts acutely at holiday times and there are probably millions of people worldwide in the same boat.
Recently I posted on ProAmerica, "The battle between Good and Evil continues...but we are winning!" But Bill wasn't so sure. He responded, "We are winning? Sure doesn't feel like it most of the time."
We all understand Bill's pessimism but when you take the 10,000 foot view by reading headlines on-and-off for fourteen hours every day as I do...heck yeah, Bill! Not only are the headlines trending in our direction, Patriots, but the headlines being posted in 2021 (even sometimes by the MSM) would've been unthinkable in 2019. The world has been red-pilled.
As I read through past headlines on my News page, I'm struck by how many of the Lefty generated terrifying headlines never came true. Just threats. Saber-rattling. Designed to keep you worried, terrified and exhausted.
Yes, there's been persecution of Conservatives, but the scale is small. Yes, there've been very worrisome headlines about vaccine passports, Court packing, gun control, war in Ukraine, etc. but mostly the Left are just shooting off their mouths via the headlines like rebellious teenagers loudly declaring they're definitely going to do some outrageous thing just to see if Mom will freak out or not.
Heck! The Liberal headlines are so bat$hit crazy bizarre, they're actually pushing Liberals with a spark of Common Sense straight into the Conservative fold. The more insane the Lefty headlines, the better I like it. You gotta look at them from a slightly "warped" perspective (as comedians do!) to see what a blessing they are because the more crackers the headline, the more it'll backfire on the Left spectacularly!
Liberals bluster. Take their headlines with a grain of salt.
Conservatives deliver. You can take our stuff to the bank!
UPDATE: This is confirmed!!! Go to this link and watch the video of Charlie Ward. https://twitter.com/tom2badcat/status/1325125515313770499
This week has been a wild emotional ride. Patriots were on a MAGA high on Monday, confident on Tuesday and incredulous on Wednesday. On Thursday, they clawed their way out of the abyss, and with rampant voter fraud reports flooding Twitter, by Friday the patriots were doing The King and I thing: whistling to keep up their courage and rightly so!
It was late Wednesday / early Thursday when whispers of a secret Sting Operation on the election fraud surfaced. By sheer dumb luck, I was one of the first to break the story...and I barely even mentioned it!
That's when the mood shifted to incredulity-meets-hope-meets-I-don't-want-my-hopes-to-be-dashed-again.
For some of you, the whole blockchain watermark thing supposedly present in official paper ballots falls under the heading of woo-woo Conspiracy Theory. TruthorFiction has flippantly declared it malarkey and even the man who first floated it publicly on Twitter as a "consider this" scenario is backpedaling so fast, he bumped into himself coming out of Starbucks last week.
But he doesn't actually deny it. When I DMed with him today, I got the feeling that he's a naughty boy who spilled the beans too early...but that doesn't make those beans any less true. Washington insider Dr. Steve Pieczenik calmly explained the QFS Blockchain Encryption Code to Owen Shroyer on Thursday night and I tend to believe it because it's actually nothing new. It was invented in 2008 and has been used with bitcoin, health records, etc. for a long time.
Most of the disbelief is based on simple practicality. If each state prints their own official ballots, how would they get the watermarked paper?
Hint: Not from XpedX. The watermarked paper was provided by the Department for Homeland Security and already contained the almost invisible QFS Blockchain Encryption Code.
The plan was as brilliant as it was simple. When the counting stopped on Tuesday night we assumed it was because President Trump was ahead in the count and the Left just couldn't tolerate that!
What if, "consider this," it may've been for another reason.
What if President Trump casually let it slip, "Oh, by the way boys, go right ahead and count all those extra Biden ballots but, hmmm, are they watermarked?".
The fraudsters were damned if they did and damned if they didn't...so they did anyways.
I was the same kind, funny person the day I expressed my support of President Trump on Facebook as I was the day before. But you'd never know it from the bizarre reaction of the Liberal Snowflake who'd been my Facebook friend...up until that fateful day.
With f-words flying, she mumbled from behind her mask, "I should have known you were not a shafe shpace" and flounced out of my gentle cyber world into the real world full of those horrible, nasty Trump supporters.
Life must be Hell for her.
This is a rant. Plain and simple. If I don't rant here, I'll burst a blood vessel because I don't have President Trump's grace and patience. Within the first five seconds of the Trump Town Hall hosted by Savannah Guthrie, I was using words that would make a sailor blush.
Please tell me I'm not the only one.
In yet another example of Trump-debating-and-beating-the-Moderator, the Mainstream Media culminated a week of doing every possible thing to silence any anti-Biden news with this charade of a Town Hall.
How exactly is that supposed to serve the Democratic ticket!?!
Don't they know that a martyr is more attractive, not less?
Minnesota Nice? Orwellian Governor Walz Blames "Racism" for Failure of his Surprise CASPER At-Home Blood and Saliva Sampling
Hear that? It's the Twilight Zone music playing softly in the background because they're here-ere. Surprise, unsolicited, undesired at-home blood and saliva sampling courtesy of Minnesota's Governor Walz of "rock and cow" infamy.
Or rather, they were here. No sooner had the task forces begun ringing doorbells, but Governor Walz called off his Orwellian henchmen claiming we Minnesotans were racist and threatening his Community Assessment for Public Health Emergency Response teams. CASPER, for short. Catchy, ain't it.
Did I mention he's up for re-election in 2022?
Brilliant campaign move.
As my husband and I watched the National Day of Prayer and Repentance, the moment came where Franklin Graham asked the congregation on the National Mall to pray. After a hushed moment, the sound of 50,000 voices raised in prayer swelled in a great din of supplication. Glancing over at Michael, I noticed that he was covered with goosebumps...and he doesn't goosebump easily.
As tears flowed down my cheeks, I had goosebumps on my goosebumps.
Thank God for a nation that prays in the name of Jesus, Amen.
As soon as Donald Trump clinched the Presidential Nomination in 2016, that's when it all started.
Trump vs Mental Health
Somehow it was assumed that Trump (and his supporters) could never be pro-Mental Health.
On Psychology Today, who has approached me to join their team, there are tens of thousands of articles about President Trump and I've yet to find a positive one.
In August of 2016, the founder of PsychCentral labeled Trump, "the consummate American bullshit artist" and further proceeded to insult every Trump Supporter on PsychCentral by saying, "the American people will buy any line of B.S."
Having learned that their boss hated Trump, all the other PsychCentral psychologists, therapists and bloggers felt free to clamber aboard, gleefully bashing Trump in their articles.
Save one: me.
Here's what I've wanted to know since 2016: When did caring about Mental Health supposedly become the sole province of Liberals?
When did supporting Mental Health and supporting Donald Trump become mutually exclusive?
The day was April 12th, 2012. It was a Thursday. I'd just turned 32. This was the first time my parents had allowed me to go somewhere and said, "You don't have to call us every time you arrive or leave a destination."
That's because I was with Michael, my fiancé of four days. We were in love and I was finally free! It was an intoxicating cocktail from which I've never recovered.
Today, I have the taste of that same heady elixir in my mouth again and I like it!
I like it a lot!
