Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin will soon begin selling tickets for rides on its space tourism rocket
4-29-21, CNBC -- Jeff Bezos’ space venture Blue Origin will soon begin selling tickets for rides on its space tourism rocket called New Shepard.
The company hasn't revealed the cost of tickets yet. Reportedly more details will come on May 5, 2021 to those who submit their name and email on a form on the company’s website. The spaceship is designed to carry as many as six people on a ride past the edge of space, with the capsules on previous test flights reaching an altitude of more than 340,000 feet.
To date, Virgin Galactic owned by Richard Branson has 1850 employees and has sold tickets to about 600 passengers at a price between $200,000 and $250,000 each.
According to the company website:
“Sign up to learn how you can buy the very first seat on New Shepard.”
The announcement’s video features Bezos going out to the capsule of New Shepard after the company’s test flight earlier this month.
It shows him driving across the Texas desert, the remote location of the New Shepard launch facility – notably at the wheel of a Rivian R1T electric truck, which is emblazoned with Blue Origin’s signature feather.
Shares of Virgin Galactic fell more than 3% after Blue Origin posted its video, as Bezos’ company will compete. More here

War on Food: USA Ranchers Targeted
Goal? Outlaw Meat, Even Chicken - Called War on Animal Cruelty
Oregon: Animal Sanctuary State?
11-24-19, If a dead animal has been sprawled on a roadside in hot weather, the meat is unsafe to eat unless it was recently killed (for example, if you hit it yourself and know how long it's been dead). Each year, vehicles kill thousands of animals on roads in the U.S. Rather than seeing those animals spoil and go to waste by the side of the road, dozens of states allow people to legally collect the meat for consumption. However, animals dead from disease or old age are not safe to eat ...
4-28-21, Mike Adams, Natural News* -- The total war against the food supply is now underway with a ballot initiative in Oregon seeking to criminalize all forms of meat production, including cattle and backyard chickens. Only meat permitted in the proposal will be from already dead animals. WHAT? idiocy and promotion of disease! Summary:
.. Legislative efforts to criminalize animal ranching and meat production.
.. Geoengineering / terraforming efforts to block the sun and block photosynthesis of food crops.
.. Federal legislation efforts to outlaw combustion engines to end all forms of modern farming with tractors.
.. Continued efforts to outlaw front yard and back yard gardening.
.. State laws banning the transportation of garden seeds.
The proposal [IP3] called "Abuse, Neglect, and Assault Exemption Modification and Improvement Act" would delete all references to “good animal husbandry” from state statute and only allow an animal to be injured in cases of a human’s self-defense. A veterinarian’s spaying and neutering of household pets would also be exempt.
Animal activist David Michelson recently told Portland’s KBOO-FM, a donor-supported radio station that the initiative’s sponsor, a group called End Animal Cruelty, is beginning to gather the 112,000 signatures they’ll need by next summer and is working through the national progressive network ActBlue to recruit volunteers for the effort.

Virginia Eliminates Accelerated Math Courses Because of Equity
4-23-21, Federalist -- The Virginia Dept of Education [VDOE] is currently gathering public feedback and has yet to draft a new version of its mathematics standards. The earliest a draft could come before the VDOE is school year 2022-2023 and the earliest any Virginia students would begin learning math under the new paradigm is school year 2025-2026. [..] Every job in the future is going to need more focus on data. Only in 11th and 12th grade is there any opportunity for choice in higher math courses.
VDOE spokesperson Charles Pyle told Fox News the Virginia Mathematics Pathways Initiative (VMPI) would “support increased differentiated learning opportunities within a heterogeneous [diverse] learning environment.” Delegate candidate for Virginia’s 50th House District, Mike Allers, told The Federalist that VDOE “didn’t level the playing field —they destroyed it.” Oftentimes initiatives, like one created by the VDOE, are pitched as a way of giving black and brown students a necessary leg up, but Allers said barring students from taking accelerated courses will have the opposite effect.
The program will include rejiggering eighth, ninth and 10th-grade math courses to place a greater emphasis on fields including data science and data analytics. Schools would still offer traditional courses such as Algebra I, Geometry and Algebra II, but these courses would now have stronger foundations in data analytics. Loudoun County school board member Ian Serotkin reported that the VDMI is a “a sweeping initiative by the Virginia Dept of Education to revamp the K-12 math curriculum statewide over the next few years” by “eliminat[ing] ALL math acceleration prior to 11th grade.”
2-21-17, WashTimes -- The University of Washington, Tacoma's Writing Center now instructs students that expecting proper grammar perpetuates racism and “unjust language structures.” A cadre of staffers recently crafted an instructional poster for “Huskies” on “anti-racist and social justice work.” The Daily Caller reported that the project was spearheaded by Dr. Asao Inoue, the center’s director who said: “Racism is the normal condition of things. Racism is pervasive. It is in the systems, structures, rules, languages, expectations, and guidelines that make up our classes, school, and society. For example, linguistic and writing research has shown clearly for many decades that there is no inherent ‘standard’ of English. Language is constantly changing. These two facts make it very difficult to justify placing people in hierarchies or restricting opportunities and privileges because of the way people communicate in particular versions of English.” More here

Massive number of flu cases are re-labeled COVID cases
3-1-21, Canada Free Press -- By far, the most extensive strategy is in the Covid business is re-labeling. Flu is/was called COVID. The definition of a COVID case allows flu in the door. There is nothing unique about that definition. For example, a cough, or chills and fever, would constitute “a mild case of COVID.” The medical cartel “discovers” (markets) huge numbers of so-called unique diseases—-each disease with a purported specific cause: virus A, virus B, virus C. For each virus, there must be at least several highly profitable drugs that supposedly kill the germ. And for each germ, there must be a vaccine that prevents the disease.
False-positives test results come pouring out like water from a fire hose -- So…with ordinary flu symptoms plus a false-positive PCR test…voila, you have a COVID case. The next question is: what is a flu case? What is it really? Researcher Peter Doshi did much to answer that question. In December of 2005, the British Medical Journal (online) published his shocking report, which created tremors through the halls of the CDC, where “the experts” used to tell the press that 36,000 people in the US die every year from the flu. Here is a quote from Doshi’s report:
“Are US flu death figures more PR than science?” (BMJ 2005; 331:1412):
“[According to CDC statistics], ‘influenza and pneumonia’ took 62,034 lives in 2001—-61,777 of which were attributable to pneumonia and 257 to flu, and in only 18 cases was the flu virus positively identified.”
CDC creates one overall category that combines both flu and pneumonia deaths. assumption. Pneumonia has a number of causes.
Boom! You see, the CDC creates one overall category that combines both flu and pneumonia deaths.
Why do they do this? Because they disingenuously assume the pneumonia deaths are complications stemming from the flu. This is an absurd
Beware of the Least Likely Temptation
Joab had defected to Adonijah, though he had not defected to Absalom.
1 Kings 2:28; 2 Samuel 11:2, 11-12
4-19-21, Archives of Oswald Chambers -- Joab withstood the greatest test of his life, remaining absolutely loyal to King David by not turning to follow after the fascinating and ambitious son of David, Absalom. Yet toward the end of his life he turned to follow after the cowardly Adonijah.
We must always remain alert to the fact that where one person has turned back is exactly where anyone may be tempted to turn back against God (see 1 Corinthians 10:11-13). We may have just victoriously gone through a great crisis, but now when things appear to be the least likely to tempt us; beware. Thinking that the areas of our life where we have experienced victory in the past are now the least likely to cause us to stumble and fall in the future ... they may!
We are apt to say, “It is not at all likely that - that sin of ______ will cause me to stumble!”
We must not try to predict where the temptation will come; it's the least likely thing that is the real danger. If we're not careful; they'll trip us up! We have to remain true to God especially under great and intense trials — being aware of the potential for undercurrent. Staying alert keep our memory sharp before God.
Unguarded strength is actually a double weakness, because that is where the least likely temptations will be effective.
Heroes of the Bible often stumbled over their strong points, never their weak ones.
“…kept by the power of God…”— that is the only safety. 1 Peter 1:5

America's universities are turning men into women
1-17-17, FoxNews — Universities across the USA are trying to convince men to be weak like a woman; they're calling it: 'Toxic Masculinity' - we must fight back! [..] Unscientific poll to determine what the average American woman looks for in a man; they want a man who loves God and loves his family and in no particular order: "Has a job; Drives a pickup truck; Uses the bathroom standing up; Eats meat; And is willing to carry them out of a burning building." Women do not want some effeminate intellectual stuffed in skinny jeans sipping chai tea with his pinky finger extended - they don't want another 'woman!'
Brown University has a program titled, “Masculinity 101” – for “students who identify as men,” Campus Reform reports the course description titled, “Unlearning Toxic Masculinity”

3-14-18, Heritage Fdn --It's time to talk about the fact that the majority of the mass shooters come from fatherless homes ... boys need a father. [..] Ultimately, if we make fatherlessness and family breakdown a partisan issue, we all lose. Both Presidents Barack Obama [Obama came from fatherless home] and George W. Bush promoted a National Fatherhood Initiative in their administrations. Because strong marriages promote strong bonds between fathers and their children. A good starting place to correct problem would be to reduce the marriage penalties that have been built into our welfare system. A next step would be to elevate the contributions of ordinary men doing the extraordinary work of fathering. And if we directed 1 percent of the attention and media coverage we give to athletes, musicians and movie stars toward fathers ... perhaps more boys would grow up seeing them as role models.
Syrian Missile Strike Near Israeli Domona Nuclear Site
'Errant Syrian missile' fired at Israeli jet explodes near Dimona Israel Nuclear Site
4-21-21, Times of Israel -- A surface-to-air missile fired from Syria penetrated Israeli airspace early this morning. Debris from the projectile was located in the northern part of southeastern Negev region, about 19 miles from the Shimon Peres Negev Nuclear Research Center near the town of Dimona. [..]
Residents about 85 miles away in Jerusalem reported hearing a powerful explosion and that their homes were shaken by the force. Syria’s SA-5 missile – which has a range of 500 kilometers – is not believed to have been directed at the research facility where Israel is alleged to operate its secret nuclear program.
The Israeli Air Force (IAF) retaliated with strikes on Syria, including the battery from which the missile had been launched adjacent to the town of Ad Dumayr about 40 kilometers northeast of Damascus, where Iranian-backed militias have a presence.
Four SAF soldiers sustained injuries and material damage was cause as a result of the Israeli air assault, according to a Syrian military source cited by the state-run SANA news agency.
The Russian-made SA-5 is an outdated missile system that has been used by Syria for nearly three decades.
Israeli media has reported that air defenses around the Dimona reactor and the Red Sea port Eilat have been bolstered in recent weeks, against potential long-range missile or drone attack by Iranian-backed forces, including Houthi rebels based in Yemen.
Hostilities between the Jewish State and the Islamic Republic are high over Tehran’s nuclear program and a recent surge in sabotage attacks, several of which the arch-foes have blamed on each other.

USPS “covert operations spying on US Citizens
4-21-21: Yahoo News -- The details of the surveillance effort, known as iCOP, or Internet Covert Operations Program, have not previously been made public. The work involves having analysts trawl through social media sites to look for what the document describes as “inflammatory” postings and then sharing that information across government agencies.
U.S. Postal Service "Monitoring" Americans
4-21-21, The Federalist -- The mail agency's Internet Covert Operations Program [iCOP], is a surveillance program not previously reported which includes combing through social media platforms to identify “inflammatory” posts and disseminating them across federal agencies. While it’s a little-known fact law enforcement teams involving even white-collar crimes =>
<= often involve special postal inspectors. The rapidly growing surveillance state which has become normalized and even accepted among Americans has become subject to abuse by government actors with an “overwhelming amount of power.” The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act courts, for example, were manipulated and lied to by deep-state FBI agents spying on American citizens who worked on Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign.
Facing Death Without Fear
According to Jesus’ promise, we look for new heavens
and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
2 Peter 3:13
4-23-21, Before we have the peace and assurance that we are born again in the Lord Jesus [John 3:3, 7] most of us wonder and even fear death: Where will I go? What will it be like? Will I go to Hell? However, after reading God’s promise book THE BIBLE we should no longer fear death, but feel it’s a wonderful eternal journey with God. Following are encouraging Bible verses of life with Jesus after we stop breathing on this earth:
Who Killed the 10th Amendment?
4-21-21, Mises Inst -- To arrive at a democracy, we Americans destroyed a republic. One of the ways it was destroyed was through the slow sundering of the 10th Amendment to the Constitution that was meant to guarantee constitutional devolution of power as follows:
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
The de facto demise of the 10th has resulted in "constitutional" consolidation. One American explains: “Anyone who quotes the 10th Amendment, but not the 14th Amendment that supplanted it cannot be taken seriously.”
In other words, to advance the erosion of the 10th in explaining who did our republic in, without mentioning the 14th: this was an omission on the writer’s part.
If the Bill of Rights was intended to place strict limits on federal power and protect individual and locality from the national government—the 14th Amendment effectively defeated that purpose by placing the power to enforce the Bill of Rights in federal hands, where it was never intended to be.
Put differently, matters previously subject to state jurisdiction have been pulled into the orbit of a judiciary. Yet not even conservative constitutional originalists are willing to cop to this constitutional fait accompli.
Amendment XIV, Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

What did he say??
CNN's Chris Cuomo took things to his darkest level yet as he went on an unhinged screed about how white people’s kids need to pile up
4-18-21, White kids need to be killed off in droves in order for gun control to be passed and the police to be abolished.
Transcript Chris Cuomo Kill White Kids, Police Reform, 4-16-21
Chris Cuomo concocted a perverted fantasy of a white kid getting killed and calls for reform afterward: CNN’s Cuomo Prime Time, April 16, 2021, 9:08:58 p.m. Eastern
“You hear people. What are you going to do when you see these shootings? You know what you’re going to do. “That George Floyd, did you hear about him? That Daunte Wright, did you hear about him? That 13-year-old Adam, you know he was a gangbanger.”
“ Why do that? Because you want to make the problem them. It takes the onus off the idea that you're wrong about policing not needing to change. Forget that police are trained to deal with noncompliance with force that is not lethal. “Hey, comply or die, eh.”
“And you know what the answer is. You really do. You don't like it, I don't like it, it scares me. Shootings, gun laws, access to weapons. Oh, I know when they'll change. Your kids start getting killed, white people's kids start getting killed.
“Smoking that doobie [marijuana] that's actually legal probably in your state now, but they don’t know what it was and the kid runs and then pop, pop, pop, pop! The cop was justified. “Why did you run?” Oh, he had a baseball game tonight. Oh, white kid, big family, that house over there? Those start piling up. “What is going on with these police?” Maybe we shouldn't even have police.”
“That kind of mania, that kind of madness, that will be you. That will be the majority, because it's your people. See, now black people start getting all guns, forming militias, protect themselves. Can't trust the deep state. You'll see a wave of change, in access and accountability. We saw it in the '60s.
"That's when it changes, because that's when it's you. My job is to show you and them, because there but for the grace. And the grace is forgiveness that none of us deserve for the blessings that we're wasting in this country.
“That is our reality. And the reality is clear and the state of play is unchanging. And that is not a recipe for any type of longevity. And what do we do here, what do I do here? I get lost in the next. The next name, the next iteration, the new in news dominates because you get bored. “I've heard enough. I've heard enough. I cared about George Floyd, it was wrong, but I've had it with the trial, it's too long. Just let me know when they have a verdict.”
“We pretend that we're not just seeing the same lying and lack of leading and bleeding and death and pain, new names, new faces, new places. Same problems. You know it, I know it. I know that you know.” More here and here
Sadly the Ignoramus omits the 'reality' that black people are killing each other!
The Trumpet of God
“And when the voice of the trumpet sounded long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and God answered him by a voice.”
4-15-21, Archives of Henry Morris, PhD -- Exodus 19:19 is the first reference to trumpets in the Bible, and it is significant that the “voice” of the trumpet was coming not from man but from God. The setting was the awesome scene at Mount Sinai, when the Lord gave Moses the Ten Commandments for His people.
The last reference in the Old Testament to trumpets again refers to God’s trumpet. “And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the LORD God shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south” (Zechariah 9:14).
The trumpet as used in Israel (Hebrew shofar) was made of rams’ horns and was used on many important occasions. One of the most notable was when the Israelites finally entered the Promised Land at Jericho.
“So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and...the wall fell down flat,...and they took the city” (Joshua 6:20). These were human trumpets, of course, but they were sounded with the authority of God, and God gave the victory and the walls fell flat.
We also today can speak with the authority of God if we speak His Word plainly and clearly. But “if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?” (1 Corinthians 14:8)
We ourselves may soon hear the trumpet of God, for the return of Christ is drawing near. “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven...with the trump of God” (1 Thessalonians 4:16). As we are caught up to meet the Lord in the air, we (like John long ago) will hear a voice “as it were of a trumpet,” saying, “Come up hither” (Revelation 4:1), and then “shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
What we know about fake currency and George Floyd's death
6-3-20, SCTimes, MINNEAPOLIS — Cup Foods employee called 911 when George Floyd apparently passed him a Counterfeit $20 bill. Fake bills have been circulating in the Minneapolis neighborhood and it's company policy to call the police. Three officers answered the call ... the rest is history. No one is saying Chauvin should have had his knee on George's neck ... but ...
What Was Learned From Chauvin Prosecution in Minneapolis?
That counterfeiting money is no longer a crime? Maybe a misdemeanor; but nothing that the police should/would bother with. [..] George Floyd refused to take back the counterfeit bill so the police came. [..] The trial for the officer who had his knee on George's neck claimed murder and he was found guilty. However, Medical Examiner's autopsy report concluded the cause of death was due to heart failure.
The "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint and neck compression." Death due to heart failure differs from the one reached by an independent examiner hired by the Floyd family; that report listed the cause of death as "asphyxiation from sustained pressure."
Yet post mortem report said he had an oxygen level of 98 percent. An oxygen saturation of 95 to 100 percent is normal.
What about the forged money??
Apparently it’s okay to riot in D.C., commit arson, loot, destroy government buildings and assault police officers again ... now that Dems control things.
4-21-21, Front Page, Daniel Greenfield -- The face of the Black Lives Matter insurrectionist who was arrested in Washington D.C. with an axe, a laser and a “destructive device” will not be plastered by the FBI over any local billboards. The BLM insurrections who rioted in Washington D.C. over the death of Daunte Wright, who had choked a woman to steal her rent money, threw fireworks and heavy objects at police. They shone lasers in the eyes of police officers and vandalized the Columbus monument with the obscene and hateful graffiti of a racist black supremacist movement. And they’ll get a pass. [..]
Under ole Joe Biden the mostly peaceful race riots, the uprisings, or insurrections, by any name, are back. The BLM mobs are shooting off fireworks at police, shining lasers in their eyes, throwing debris at them, and shouting, “If we don't get it, burn it down!"
But that’s not an insurrection. It’s an insurrection when the rioters are out of power. When the rioters have the White House, the Justice Dept, the House and the Senate on their side, it’s not an insurrection. Just like the Nazi brownshirts or the Maoist Red Guard, BLM is now a form of state terror. More here
4-19-21, Yahoo.com -- Florida's top Republicans cited events in liberal leftist Democrat run cities around the country deciding not to allow it in their state. Florida's Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill to create tougher penalties for people who participate in violence; rioting, arson, looting, destruction of public buildings and attacking police officers and it became effective immediately.
Florida Gov DeSantis signed new anti-riot bill that cracks down on violent protests and stops police budgets from being cut:
- The bill, officially known as HB 1, was signed on Monday, 4/19/21 as closing arguments in the Derek Chauvin trial over George Floyd's death were held.
- The bill increases the criminal penalties for those who commit crimes during a riot, including assault and defacing monuments and public property
- The bill also allows local governments to be sued if they fail to prevent a riot breaking out and protests police budgets from being cut
- It also gives civil immunity to people who drive into protesters who have forcibly blocked roads More here

"The Next Time God Shuts Heaven"
"Who giveth rain upon the earth, and sendeth waters upon the fields: To set up on high those that be low; that those which mourn may be exalted to safety. He disappointeth the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot perform their enterprise."
4-15-21, Joseph Farrah, WND.com -- Does God not get enough credit for running things on Earth? Is He actually still in charge here? Do we have anything to truly worry about than the wrath of God? Does God actually guard jealously His sovereign ability to bless or curse His creation on the basis of humanity's spiritual health and obedience? Do we have more to fear from God because of humanity's rebellion than anything else? Will almighty God use weather or climate to get our attention and cast judgment on this earth? See Deuteronomy 32:2
With all you've seen, heard and read about climate change in the last 30 years, how about considering that God's still "got the whole world in His hand?" And how about the fairly recent plagues: catastrophic storms, floods, devastating earthquakes and raging wildfires – represent what God explains in His Word to ensure you do not "perish quickly from off the good land which the Lord giveth you?" (Joshua 23:16; Deuteronomy 11:17)
The two most grievous stories the Bible has to communicate to mankind follow:
Flood: The great deluge where all but one family and two (or in some cases, seven) specimens of each kind of animal perish in judgment against man's sin: "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually." Genesis 6:5
Drought and famine: While God promised Noah never again to destroy the world in a global flood, He repeatedly promises to shut down the rains as a warning against unregenerate sin: "If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people." 2 Chronicles 7:13 And in the very next verse God promises:
"If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek My face and turn from their wicked ways; THEN will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14
Wait a minute! You've heard that last verse about beseeching God in humility and prayer for a healing of the land many times. But did you know it came in the context of drought, plague and pestilence? Note there is never any mention in Scripture of the size of our collective or individual carbon footprint guilt – not even in the more modern translations.
Remember, these were God's actual words spoken to Solomon at the miraculous dedication of the First Temple. It's worth another look in the context of the overall message and what the people witnessed in its majesty and solemnity.
It is preceded a few verses earlier in 2 Chronicles 6:26-28 with this prayer from the successor to David: "When the heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against thee; yet if they pray toward this place, and confess thy name, and turn from their sin, when thou dost afflict them; Then hear thou from heaven, and forgive the sin of thy servants, and of thy people Israel, when thou hast taught them the good way, wherein they should walk; and send rain upon thy land, which thou hast given unto thy people for an inheritance. If there be dearth in the land, if there be pestilence, if there be blasting, or mildew, locusts, or caterpillars; if their enemies besiege them in the cities of their land; whatsoever sore or whatsoever sickness there be."

Jesus warned days of Noah & Lot Luke 17:26-30
Maybe you think the Bible is just a collection of old folk stories. It's a history and prophecy book - many artifacts have been discovered proving it's true. God not only created the world and everything in it; including us ... He controls the weather as a principal means of reigning in our behavior ... and for our own good. He does so because He loves us and wants us to have the chance to be His children for eternity – but only if we love and obey Him. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the King of Kings, the one and only Redeemer and Mediator between God and man. God's going to shut heaven again; and when you see it happen, don't blame carbon dioxide. Blame humanity's disobedience of God's commands and get down on your knees in humility and pray for forgiveness. More here
