Enough of politics and current events. These things are the source of much agony and fear, especially just now. Let’s have a day away from them. Perhaps more than one day; we shall see.
This therefore I say, brethren; the time is short; it remaineth, that they also who have wives, be as if they had none; And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as if they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; And they that use this world, as if they used it not: for the fashion of this world passeth away. [1 Corinthians 7:29-32]
Read superficially, the passage above seems to express a belief that was common among the Christians of Saint Paul’s day: i.e., that “the world”–a vague and expansive term, difficult to define then as now–would soon be no more. That message seemed to be consistent with Jesus’s own proclamation that the kingdom of God is “at hand.”
Yet a more literal reading of the passage suggests that Paul had another meaning in mind. It would not be “the world” but the fashion of the world that would soon pass away. And it was so. Christ Himself had caused it: by preaching the Gospel to the Jews of Judea for three years; by going to Jerusalem to face death by torture; and by rising from the dead and returning to His followers in demonstration of His divine authority. The Christian message changed the world. The simplicity and directness of Jesus’s teachings made it possible for ethical monotheism, the great religious / philosophical achievement of God’s Chosen People, to reach every part of the globe.
Christianity first transformed Europe. The pagans of the continent rapidly absorbed and accepted the Faith as superior to their previous ways. As Christianity spread through the Roman Empire, it changed every fashion the Old World had known before it. Europe became Christendom: a continent united by faith in Christ’s Gospel. Though Christian political unity eventually dissolved, the Gospel message continued to spread, finding converts in every part of the globe. It continues to spread today.

The Republican Party in America is living on borrowed time.
78 million voters from both parties (give or take a couple million) watched as the Republican Party establishment RINOs spent four years giving lip service and occasional half-hearted support to President Donald Trump as he tried to turn the country around from destruction. 78 million voters watched rallies of tens of thousands turn out in rain, snow, blistering heat to support a President they saw as working for them. 78 million voters voted for him; and watched a crooked cabal steal the election to give office to a Chinese Communist Party puppet.
They then watched lawsuit after lawsuit denied by partisan or disinterested courts, all the way to a SCOTUS whose corrupted and compromised Chief Justice refused to see any evidence, hear any evidence, speak of any evidence. Then came the illegitimate inauguration, and now a SECOND partisan impeachment, winding its way through a Congressional sewer without end.
78 million voters are FURIOUS. Due to the Fake Pandemic, I don’t get out and around much these days; sometimes I’ll wear a mask to blend in, even though no science supports that superstitious behavior as a preventative measure against viruses. But I’ve never had so many total strangers tell me they know the election was stolen, the appeals system rigged and the fix was in before this year. I’ve made a couple casual friends just by agreeing with them. And none seem willing to “unify” behind a liar, cheater, moral reprobate currently in the Oval Office (unless that’s just a movie set, as has been suggested).
But here’s a clue, Republican Party donors, officials, office staff: 78 million people are WATCHING YOU NOW. They are watching to see if you spinelessly strike a bargain with Chuck Schumer (the erection-challenged semi-majority leader). They are watching to see if you learned anything from the wild drop in fundraising donations since the election; learned anything from the rise in Trump’s popularity even after he was evicted from the White House; learned anything from the outrage over the “garaging” of the National Guard last night. Those were the husbands, fathers, sons and brothers, cousins and uncles of those 78 million voters you just disrespected AGAIN. How do you think they will react?
There was a short time when it was realized the dodo birds of Mauritius were endangered; between the time that they were overhunted and the time they actually went extinct. But it was not realized in time to save the dodo. Stupid birds that did not recognize humans as predators they were, but that did not exclude their contribution to the ecology. They died out because they were not protected, and they were too stupid to save themselves.
The modern Republican Party is quite similar. Long in tradition but short in insight, they think they are indispensable because they have lasted this long. The current crop of power-brokers and elected officials think they have a lock on public office, can keep out all outsiders and retain all benefits from power for themselves and their Democratic enablers. But this is a crucial, short period of grace before the storm that Donald Trump wrought is upon them.
If they go through with this madness of impeaching Trump as a private citizen and trying to impose a ban on his holding future public office, they will commit political suicide. Ten dim bulbs in the House went along with the Democratic last-minute putsch, for impenetrable reasons. Liz Cheney already has TWO primary challengers, and it’s safe to assume the other nine are in line for similar treatment.
Here’s the plain and simple truth, Republicans: Liz Cheney cannot elect herself back into office, and once she’s primaried out, it’s really doubtful the betrayed voters of Wyoming will ever vote her back in. THE REST OF YOU SHOULD LOOK AND LEARN. Mitch McConnell is no more permanent than Liz Cheney; nor is any other Senator or Representative. MAYBE YOU SHOULD AVOID GIVING REASONS TO 78 MILLION IRATE, ENERGIZED VOTERS TO VOTE YOU OUT OF OFFICE?
It may already be too late. Martha, [at left], was the last known passenger pigeon in the world. There were once millions of them, but now they are gone, hunted to extinction like the dodo. Republicans who vote to impeach Trump will become an (electorially) endangered species, also hunted down in elections and eliminated one by one.
It doesn’t matter who your donors are, how much they contribute to your campaigns and how much they stroke your ego. It doesn’t matter how much you like or dislike Trump himself: 78 million people like him, and damn few like you even now (Congress’ approval rating hovers around 15% on good days, and Trump’s is 50% or so right now, so he’s three times as popular with the voters as any of you). Also, despite a Corporate Cartel Perverse Media’s (CCPM) desperation to ignore, suppress and deny that any evidence of election fraud exists, the word has gotten out.
And we don’t believe anything the CCPM say any more, we believe new sources such as (www.HereIsTheEvidence.com), also in numerous places like (www.gtv.com) and the number of them keeps going up (www.theburningplatform.com, www.thegatewaypundit.com, www.oann.com , www.bannonswarroom.com) as more and more evidence surfaces.
We know all about the Dominion machines connected to the Internet for orders and changes on election night; we know all about the suitcases of fake ballots pulled out from beneath the tables in Georgia, the early-morning deliveries in Pennsylvania and Detroit and so on; we know all about the foreign interference from Italy, China, Pakistan, Germany and even Venezuela. By giving support to this treason (foreign interference in an election is treason, you know? Even though our CIA has been doing it for ages) you are becoming complicit in it, and America does not forgive traitors.
So this is your window, Republican Party in America. Either you reform or you will be bypassed. You must come up with better leaders than Mitch McConnell if he helps Schumer impeach Trump again; you have to come up with better candidates than that geriatric globalist Mittens Romney, that oddball opportunist Lindsay Graham or that neoconartist Liz Cheney – or we will. All Donald Trump needs to do is WHISTLE for a new political party, and 78 million voters will desert you overnight – and THAT will be THAT. And you will DESERVE it – far more than the dodo or the passenger pigeon.
Take it to heart and take it to the bank – your goodwill account with the voters is OVERDRAWN, and that’s the only balance that really matters.Original source...The Burning Platform: https://www.theburningplatform.com/2021/01/24/borrowed-time/
So, now we are lead to believe even the scene/setting/stage whatever, is fake too! Biden is conducting his "Presidency" from a fake Oval Office, probably at Castle Rock studios??? The actual White House: The White House is abandoned. NO one is there, plastic bags flying around.
At least I'm not as delusional as Nancy Pelosi.
What to Do When People Are Your Primary Source of Stress
Tom Kuptz October 17, 2019
Stress arises from a variety of underlaying issues—including from people. Knowing how to deal with toxic individuals can help you avoid or overcome the physical ramifications of having people who cause stress in your life.
These physical issues happen because of the emotional stress you deal with every time you encounter someone who makes you feel angry, sad, frustrated, or worse. Emotional stress is just as bad for speeding up the aging process as physical stress is. Continue reading…
Adrenal Fatigue and Stress
Tom Kuptz October 12, 2019
When your body is stressed out, it uses some particular defense methods that are beneficial in the short term—but over the long term, they're become quite harmful. One of these defense methods is the reallocation of energy.
Essentially, your body takes a bunch of its energy and uses it all at once in order to give you a boost, making you more likely to solve whatever problem you're facing. However, when you experience long periods of stress, your body is eventually going to run out of this energy, and that is known as adrenal fatigue or exhaustion. Continue reading…
