    G’morning, friends. Gerard would have wanted us to have a nice day, so that’s at the top of my menu today.

  • ghostsniper February 5, 2024, 10:03 AM

    It’s 51 degrees right now and the sun is shining bright.
    I’m already having a nice day.
    Here in a min I’m gonna open the workshop and blow the stink out.

      Please go here:


      The invasion of our USA is very much advanced and they (the enemy) are ready to attack. This is not false info. These soldiers are now coming in openly.

      Much info at the link above. We are being taken over.

        Turn your TV off . . .

        From Peoples Rights Yesterday (2/5/2024) Watch Twitter (Test Dummy) video link below, only 4 minutes.

        “The Democrats and the Republicans are both lying to us and the media is the conduit to getting us to believe their lies. Stop believing them, stop funding them! Here’s a little more evidence of what is really happening at the border. The conflict is all for show to excite you against your neighbor. If there is a war between the “right” and the “left” it will be a fabricated war, a war that we hope you refuse to be part of.

        You have got to watch this: https://twitter.com/TestDummy04/status/1751316255649173688

        Neither the Republican or the Democrats are going to protect the people of this land. If you and your families are to be protected you will have to unite with your neighbors to do it yourselves!

        The Tex gov is not our friend. Border drama is an election year publicity stunt. An @rmy is and has been entering our nation un-opposed. This @rmy is made up of numerous paid men from several countries.

        We need critical thinkers on AD not gullible TV watching human drones. Gerard was a critical thinker, hence, American Digest.

        Covid is ancient history. The dot gov orchestrated border invasion is on going and coming to a very, very nasty time of awakening in our front yards and homes. Think infrastructure destruction by sabotage for instance. Then your TV will be off.

      I’ve been leaving the truck windows open in old Bucket. It smells like sweat from two teens and an adult who used that truck while moving 300 yards last summer. Gonna get some heavy duty seat covers for this Spring.

    From Epoch Times.
    mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines Caused More Deaths Than Saved: Study
    Researchers called for a ‘global moratorium’ as the study revealed ‘well-documented’ serious adverse events and an unacceptable harm-to-reward ratio.

    With considerably lower efficacy rates, mRNA COVID-19 vaccines cause more deaths than save lives, according to a new study whose researchers called for a “global moratorium” on the shots and “immediate removal” from childhood immunization schedule.
    The peer-reviewed study, published in the Cureus journal on Jan. 24, analyzed reports from the initial phase 3 trials of Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. These trials led to the shots being approved under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) in the United States. The study also looked into several other research and reviews of the trials. It found that the vaccines had “dramatically lower” efficacy rates than the vaccine companies claimed.
    Moreover, based on “conservative assumptions, the estimated harms of the COVID-19 mRNA vaccines greatly outweigh the rewards: for every life saved, there were nearly 14 times more deaths caused by the modified mRNA injections.”

    • John Venlet February 5, 2024, 11:03 AM

      Based on the little amount of accurate and truthful information which has been filtered out to the public so far regarding the mRNA jabs, I am more than skeptical that any lives were actually saved at all from these poison jabs. Many individuals have died from the initial mRNA poison jabs, that we know with some certainty, the question is, how many additional individuals are going to die from the long term poisonous effects of having taken the mRNA jabs? Did Gerard die from merely cancer, or, turbo cancer effectuated by having taken one or more of these mRNA poisons?

      • ghostsniper February 5, 2024, 1:28 PM

        That’s right John.
        Take a look at what Joe quoted:
        “…mRNA COVID-19 vaccines cause more deaths than save lives…”

        The “…save lives…” part.
        Notice, that once again NO FUCKING PROOF of what they claim.
        I’ll even go so far as to state there is no way they can provide proof of such a claim.

        So, then, what is the point of such an assembly of words?
        I’ll submit that is another step in buffering the outcome of the criminality that underscores the entire mRNA vaccine attack on the global population.

        The gross lying about this topic continues.
        I’ve got something to say about the bigger picture of all of this and I’m putting together a collection of thoughts on it that I will post soon. Prepare for disappointment.

        • John Venlet February 5, 2024, 2:04 PM

          Ghostsniper, the American people are being lied to about every, damn, thing! Not a word out of the mouth of even the lowliest of bureaucrats can be believed. Operating on the assumption that what is being fed to Americans by the media or politicians is truthful, is a fool’s errand.

      Where is the proof that there was ANY death caused by the so-called COVID-19 “virus”? Yes people were killed during the COVID years by medical practices and mis-practices. Why was there no seasonal flu out break reported over COVID fake scam?

      The answer to the whys is, the payouts were fantastic for a COVID death certificate, and zilch for a flu death certificate. It would have been 100% safer to live in China. The Chinese were not injected.

      The so-called vaccine was a killer for damn sure. It paralyzed and soon after killed my sister in law.

      Not only is Wash DC a razor wire fenced criminal headquarters, it is also a murder incorporated by legislation or decree operation.

    News Headline
    Ohio health officials warn of potential measles exposure at CVG

    Going down the google news line up this morning I saw the above headline.
    Notice: “health officials”
    I saw those 2 words and automatically dismissed it.
    Over the past few years those 2 words, as well as many others, have come to be meaningless or just plain liars.

    They did this to themselves. Maybe not the people in that particular article, but in the health industry as a whole. The entire health industry has cried wolf so many times that it is not possible for honest people to trust them ever again.

    Is it possible to work through this? Maybe, on an individual basis, ie., between yourself and a particular medical person in a one to one conversation. But overall the whole thing has made itself dishonest and untrustworthy when there was no reason to do so.

    When a person decides to lie, for any reason, it is a personal choice and the reasons are irrelevant because the end result is the same. I don’t care WHY you lied, only the fact that you did. Can this be fixed? To an honest person like myself, no, it can’t be fixed. But that’s me. Maybe you are not so staunch. I have always thought of lying as a theft of trust and the worst kind of theft. If you steal my DVD player it can be replaced but when you steal my trust there is only one of them and when it’s gone it’s gone for good.

    Medical, pharmaceutical, academic, political, gov’t, etc., industries have went out of their way to become untrustworthy and that is at the core of what unites a society. Is there a way to repair this? Can a future be built upon a foundation of dishonesty?

    • Joe Krill February 6, 2024, 7:13 AM

      Ghostsniper, This is one of if not the best take on lying that I have ever read. Thank you. Joe Krill

    • Denny February 7, 2024, 10:27 AM

      “I don’t care WHY you lied, only the fact that you did. Can this be fixed? To an honest person like myself, no, it can’t be fixed.”

      Hey ghost, don’t your shoulders get just a little bit sore once in a while from
      flapping your angel wings? Everyone dies because EVERYONE lies.

      Why don’t you look up the definition of the idea of “self righteousness”. Then
      and only then will you know why bombs go off and bullets fly. You will also learn
      why the first sin on our planet by human beings was thievery.

      • ghostsniper February 7, 2024, 11:55 AM

        You don’t need to justify your behavior to me Denny, I don’t care.

        • Denny February 7, 2024, 1:04 PM

          Who’s justifying who ghost, read your very own precious words that I quoted, again.
          There is no justification for bad behavior, only punishment or death.
          You best start looking for a good lawyer or else when the
          court convenes you will have no defense even if you
          believe the lie that you’re a “honest person”.

          “There is none righteous, no not one”. Romans 3:10, Psalm 14:1, 53:1

          BTW, You don’t care about lots of things, huh ghost, it’s a damn wonder you
          can even feed yourself.

          • ghostsniper February 7, 2024, 2:20 PM

            Somebody has soiled their thong again and can’t stop crying and lying about it. LOL

    Question of the Day
    Are you a hoarder?

    • Casey Klahn February 6, 2024, 7:59 AM

      Yes, because I live in the country. Urbanite and suburbanite are just two names that mean: “bad at hoarding”.

  • John A. Fleming February 6, 2024, 6:20 PM

    There’s a video out there, something from BBC Earth , describing what goes on below the placid sylvan waters of a lily pond. Water lilies are ferocious and aggressive underwater plants, with many defenses and offenses to take out any competition for their place in the sun. I don’t think those pink flowers up there are giant water lilies, but they need to watch out. All the old childhood books showed frogs sitting on lily pads, is that so?

  • Casey Klahn February 6, 2024, 9:15 PM

    The news cycle is wound very tightly; everything and anything to take our minds off of the border invasion. So, I’ve been meaning to share this TV show I have been watching that I think many of you may like as much as me.

    The Old Man, on Hulu, has Jeff Bridges and John Lithgow. If that doesn’t sell you, the premise will. The Dude is retired and deeply in hiding ex-CIA, and in this show the US Govt. agencies send everything plus the kitchen sink to kill him, and he’s an old wheezer (like you & me) who basically kills everyone and everything sent at him when provoked. He’s a bad bamma jamma, and he carries a revolver (hah ha). The twists and turns and the high dungeon are entertaining, and I think you’ll want to watch. It might be sort of a training film, if you get me.

    It’s part soap opera, and lots of The Fugitive and The Immortal TV series’ thrown in. I know you loved those, like I did.

    So far it’s not overly political, and I’m on episode 5.

    • ghostsniper February 7, 2024, 3:39 AM

      From IMDB:
      A decent modern show!? Incredible first 2 episodes
      Guys, maybe this is it… After disappointment after disappointment, maybe we finally have a great TV show in 2022. What a breath of fresh air. Pure entertainment, great writing, great acting. So far, it’s a great show, let’s hope it stays that way. So happy to finally watch something created in 2022 with quality. Thank you.

      Thanks for the tip Casey, I’m gonna check it out.

      If you haven yet, check out Reacher, the TV show.
      Not the Tom Cruise movie.
      Just finished up the 2nd season last week – watching it on amazon prime.
      The fight scenes are the best I have ever seen, and that’s saying something.

      • Casey Klahn February 7, 2024, 5:28 AM

        Was real disappointed in the Magnum PI revival. I liked the new Higgins, whose legs alone beat out the old Higgins. The guy whose Magnum is an OK guy on his own, but gimmeabreak.

        About episode 3 of season 2 they went anti-Trump; you could tell the CBS execs were in the driver’s seat.

        My only complaint is that while TOM gives you plenty of Lithgow, and he is 100% content Lithgow double-cask, you get the main protagonist, The Dude, nowhere near as much as you want. I like Jeff Bridges in everything, but in real life his fans pissed me off, and to my face, one time. Maybe I’ll tell that story another time. His dad was a good diver, and I never could figure out how he treads water so perfectly with all that kit on.
