5-31-23, God told Noah's three sons to be fruitful and make babies! And mankind was vegetarian before Noah's flood as scripture tells us that God told Noah:
"Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat [food] for you."
God promised never again to kill all life with a flood putting a rainbow in the sky as a reminder.

Baltimore, Maryland USA
5-26-23, * -- Pro life supporters 73 and 80 year old Dick Schafer and Mark Crosby - while praying - were seriously injured during a brutal attack outside Planned Parenthood in Baltimore City. Mr Schafer is reportedly at home recovering from his injuries; however Mr Crosby’s cheek has been fractured, he will likely require a metal plate in his face. He was taken to the University of Maryland shock trauma facility for emergency treatment. For years, Mark has prayed in front of the Planned Parenthood facility in Baltimore City to let the scared, young abortion-minded women know that they are loved, that their baby is loved. [..]
In recent years in America and worldwide; churches and pro-life organizations have been hit by arson, vandalism, threats and other crimes. LifeNews counted appx 250 abortion-related attacks in 2022, including the shooting of an elderly pro-life woman in Michigan and ten attempted arson attacks. The increase in crime has prompted many churches and pro-life organizations to increase security measures.

The Bipartisan Agreement to Kick the Can
5-30-23, For those who don’t remember what the Constitution says, which is most of our elected representatives, it does not authorize a great deal of what the federal government spends our tax dollars to do. It's important to keep in mind every time we play Washington’s new favorite game, “Debt Ceiling Apocalypse.” Leaders of both parties have announced a deal in principle to avoid default by June 1 June 5, 2023. Still, both chambers of Congress must pass that deal, and many members of both parties promise to oppose it. If it passes the Republicans did pull out some wins in the debt ceiling agreement, but the fundamental problem remains.
Republicans secured a 3% increase in defense spending (one of the few items specifically enumerated in the Constitution). Republicans took back the IRS budget increase for this year and then some, though they fell far short of their goal. They clawed back some unspent COVID relief funds and they made progress on some welfare programs via work requirements for able-bodied adults.
Not awful for a party that narrowly controls only one chamber of Congress, and McCarthy and Co. deserve credit for passing a bill of their own to strengthen their negotiating position. That isn’t to say this deal is ideal. More here from Patriot Post

USA Rolling Homes: RV Encampments
Inside America's Growing RV Street Encampments
From New York City to Sacramento
5-28-23, * -- Rising costs across all sectors in the USA have caused pain for Americans in every state. Luis Quinero, party bus owner says: 'Compared to an apartment it's better because it's my space, nobody's going to bother me [wife and child].’ They’ve been in the mobile home for three months; bought it used for $30,000. The area around Quintero's home was immaculate, there were even two bottles of ammonia by his front door. Most of the residents Luis mentioned have jobs. In QUEENS, NEW YORK many RV owners have chosen streets, 45th and 46th along 20th Avenue because there’s no street cleaning. Luis migrated from Venezuela 10 years ago; his mother lives in an apartment in Queens. His brother, who works for Amazon, lives in the RV parked right beside his. He has a wife and two kids; and for business purposes and for his brother's kids' school, they use their mother's address. Two of his neighbors work at Rikers Island. Quintero said that the NYPD regularly knock on his door and tell him & others to move - they say okay - then don't. Other RVers say:
Many of the RVs have most amenities of a lovely home: running water, heat, air conditioning, gas stove, TV, internet, appliances and shower, powered by solar panels. The license plates reveal that the RVs are from many states: Texas, Vermont, Florida and Pennsylvania.
BAY AREA ALONG 101 Highway in California: Shocking photos emerged showing an ever-growing line of trucks and other vehicles along RV Encampment stretches over two miles in one of the largest encampments in the country - there were at least 135 vehicles along Binford Road on the outskirts of Novato.
SEATTLE, WA: Amid the growing homeless crisis Mayor Bruce Harrell allocated $250 million in the city's budget to address the homeless problem. Overall violent crime has remained persistently high in the city, with 2022 marking the deadliest year for the homeless population in King County.
SACRAMENTO, CA: In April, city officials in announced they' d leased land for free to Safe Ground Sacramento, a nonprofit group, for up to four months. People can park their cars or RVs on the property, and the city will provide up to 33 trailers for people to live in. The city said the site will be self-governed by what it calls a 'resident council.'
PHOENIX, ARIZONA: One couple reports that they’d been 'outpriced' of the rental market; since 2020 rents in the state have increased by as much 40 percent.

Comics, 5-29-23: USA Memorial Day
1955, * -- We pay tribute to those American soldiers who poured out their full measure of devotion upon the altar of freedom. Recently when President Eisenhower toured the Battlefield at Valley Forge and was being shown from one historic spot to another, at the conclusion of the tour he said: “This is where they got it for us.” What did he mean? He meant that those men and thousands of others in all the wars that America has fought, purchased by their blood the freedoms that we enjoy today in “the land of the free, and the home of the brave.” Battlefields of the world today are hallowed and holy to every American, and we pause to give them our highest honors, humbly realizing the sacred trust that these, our war dead, have handed to us.
Even though the sacrifices of our war dead have been great, yet the greatest sacrifice of all time was made by the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ Who not only physically but spiritually fought that all mankind might live. It seemed like a futile, hopeless struggle as He took on Satan’s task force single-handed. The jeers of the rabble, the spittle of the soldiers and the sneering of the people were incidental compared to the inner struggle which was taking place in His soul. I watch Him, in fancy, as one hand is stretched out toward God and the other toward rebellious man, and He makes the connection and says: “It is finished.” He got through for us! We have neglected Him too long! John 15:13
5-28-23, The miraculous report of the creation of man and woman. The ingenious design of the genitalia of men and women to properly 'fit together' to fertilize the egg and grow the baby in the woman's womb. It’s hard to fathom. God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful. Also, in regard to God sending men to war - he definitively described the physical attribute of MAN who was to go ... He said in 1 Samuel 5:22 to kill all who 'piss against the wall' [a woman can't do that! See also 1 Kings 16:11; 2 Kings 9:8] Genesis 1:28-31, 2:22-23, Sex make babies 4:1-4

[Genesis 2:21-22 Woman created from man] Among the terms listed to describe what normal people call a woman (singular), or women (plural), the glossary offers these new lunatic alternatives. “Wimmin,” “Womyn,” or “Womxn.” More here

History.com [here] -- Some have claimed that USA Republican General and President Dwight Eisenhower intended to say “military-industrial-congressional complex,” [no he didn't] in order to explicitly call out Congress for its role in the growth of the military industry, but that he struck out the final term at the last minute to avoid offending lawmakers. However, according to James Ledbetter, author of Unwarranted Influence: Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Military-Industrial Complex =>
<= evidence shows otherwise: A draft of the speech dated almost a month before it was delivered included the phrase “military-industrial complex” intact.
It was clear Eisenhower and his advisers did see at least some members of Congress playing a role in the dangers the military-industrial complex posed to the public.
Eisenhower and his fellow conservatives also viewed the growth of the military-industrial complex as part of a broader expansion of federal power that began with President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal.

USA Dept Homeland Security Endeavoring to Label Conservatives & Christians as Terrorists!
Biden's Dept Homeland Sec Paints Christians & Conservatives as Terrorists [here]
5-26-23, Townhall -- According to newly uncovered documents released by the Media Research Center (MRC) that ole Joe Biden’s 'woke' agency Dept of Homeland Security [DHS] has been using federal funds to destroy the reputations of prominent Christian organizations & several conservative public policy groups such as Turning Point USA, the Republican National Committee and more. The DHS gave the University of Dayton, Ohio anti-terrorism grant program $352,109 ... the group claims that "conservatives are just inches away from being Nazis and terrorists."
According to the DHS, the program's objective is to create "awareness of the radicalization to violence process" and "develop and implement modules on the risks of and protective factors for radicalization to violence related to media literacy and online critical thinking."
It is worth noting that the seminars often include lectures by members of the violent anti America riot group Antifa who want to "infiltrate and surveil" conservatives. The materials include a pyramid with Right-leaning mainstream groups suggesting they invite people to adopt Nazi and militant ideologies in the upper two sections.
The group also compared President Trump to Cambodian Dictator Pol Pot and claimed Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla) "might wish to start a second Holocaust." In 2021, a group formed by ole Joe Biden's Dept of Justice wrote a letter to the White House saying that "the classification of these heinous actions could be the equivalent to a form of domestic terrorism and hate crimes" after parents angrily showed up at American elementary schools protesting inappropriate sexual and homosexual material being taught to their children, including the racist Critical Race Theory (CRT).

REPORTEDLY: IRAN BALLISTIC MISSILE TEST ACHIEVES DISTANCE OF APPX 1300 MILES
5-25-23, Alarabia News -- Iranian state news reports that Iran successfully test-launched a ballistic missile. Iran, which has one of the biggest missile programs in the Middle East, says its weapons are capable of reaching the bases of arch-foes Israel and the United States in the region.
Iranian Defense Minister Mohammadreza Ashtiani said that despite US and European opposition, the Islamic Terror Republic has said it will further develop its “defensive” missile program: “Our message to Iran’s enemies is that we will defend the country and its achievements. Our message to our friends is that we want to help regional stability.”
Iran state TV broadcast footage of what it said was the launch of an upgraded version of Iran’s Khorramshahr 4 ballistic missile with a range of 1,243 miles and able to carry a 3,300-pound warhead. The Iranian state news agency IRNA said the liquid-fuel missile had been named the “Kheibar,” a reference to a Jewish castle overrun by Muslim warriors in the early days of Islam.
Israel, which the Islamic Republic does not recognize, sees Iran as an existential threat. Iran says its ballistic missiles are an important deterrent and retaliatory force against the United States, Israel and other potential regional adversaries. More here

Destruction of America, 5-24-23
The Slow, Painful and Planned Destruction of America
May 21, 2023, * -- I watch in horror as actions taken by the current US government are injurious to the very pillars of liberties we hold dear: freedom of religion, freedom of speech and the right to bear arms. I watch as China flexes its military muscles in the South China Sea threatening Taiwan while unimpeded her spy balloons crossed the USA while ole Joe Biden did nothing; is this man who supposedly garnered 80 million votes campaigning from his basement to become President really our President? [..]
I fear that we're watching the slow destruction of the USA; its principles and ideas are being sacrificed on the altar of Marxism and tyranny. History shows that the average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been about 250 years. The USA has gone from bondage in 1776 England to the new land of America in spiritual faith, courage, liberty & abundance. And then by 1965 from abundance to complacency, apathy, dependence, laziness, lack of faith in God = 247 years later = to bondage in 2023?
- Turn America into a multi-lingual and bi-cultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. Encourage migrants to maintain their culture. [Look at the Bible and Tower of Babel: Genesis 11:1–9 ]
- Make the USA’s fastest-growing demographic group the least educated and cause big foundations and businesses to give them lots of money, investing in the cult of 'Victimology' celebrating diversity over unity.
Whatever opinion you have of President Trump - yes, he’s crass and tough-minded [what CEO of a successful major business isn’t]? He doesn’t speak in polished Ivy League terms; but he makes good on his promises. While Trump was the nation’s leader - the US dollar was strong, inflation was less than 2%, our stock market reached all-time highs, unemployment was at all-time lows and gas prices were under $2.00. We had no war; we once again had peace through strength.

Not only does it become glaringly clear that she is unfit for office, but the fact that she is still sitting in the Senate could almost be considered elder abuse.
