Verse(s) for today:
looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:2 KJV
And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.
Luke 9:23-24 KJV
that there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
1 Corinthians 12:25-27 KJV

Maybe they aren’t Conspiracy Theorists. Maybe they just see something you don’t. Maybe they’ve learned something you haven’t yet. Maybe they understand a pattern you don’t see yet. Maybe they aren’t crazy…maybe they actually see through the propaganda and even in the face of ridicule, are trying to translate it for you.

Trump Reacts to Tucker Carlson Releasing January 6 Footage - Says ‘Free at Last’!
On Monday, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson, during his broadcast of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” aired, and discussed some of the footage from the Capitol on January 6, 2021, that he had received from House Speaker Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA). Producers, Carlson said, had poured thoroughly over the footage “for three weeks”. Further he indicated, that producers had consulted and worked with Capitol Police in making slight, “very reasonable” modifications, that Carlson indicated did not affect the footage in any significant way.
Reacting to Carlson’s’, release of the new and unseen footage from the Capitol Hill riot, that unfolded on January 6, 2021, which appears to portray a clearly different picture than the one that former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) painted, Former President Donald Trump celebrated the segment, calling it one of the biggest “scoops” in U.S. history. He further demanded that the January 6 protesters be released.
Trump postedon his Truth Social account-
“The Unselect Committee was a giant SCAM, and has now unequivocally been stamped as CRIMINAL FABRICATORS OF THIS MOST IMPORTANT DAY,”... “Pelosi & McConnell failed on security. The Police story is sad and difficult to watch. ‘Trump’ and most others are totally innocent, LET THEM GO FREE, NOW!” and…
“A whole new, and completely opposite, picture has now been indelibly painted. The Unselect Committee LIED, and should be prosecuted for their actions. Nancy & Mitch were a disaster on Security. Thank you, Kevin and Tucker. FREE AT LAST!!!”
-Former President Donald Trump
Throughout the segment on Monday, Carlson showed footage of scenes that ran contrary to some of the narratives put forth by committee members, such as former Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and others on the January 6 committee. It was anything but an “insurrection.” as they have claimed. Carlson discussed that while some of the people, who entered the Capitol were “hooligans” and committed vandalism, others inside the Capitol that day were not and can be seen being respectful of the building.
Yes, there were a few rioters but most participants were respectful, law abiding citizens, who were quietly milling around looking at photos on the walls, taking selfies and being escorted by capitol police, through the corridors in relative lines. They did not appear to realize they were doing something unlawful. It was shockingly unlike anything the committee has proclaimed and the footage they doctored for the media. The American people have been literally lied to, and sold a bill of bad goods, all in an effort to discredit Trump. The truth is out!
A particularly shocking piece of footage, actually appeared to show Jacob Chansley, a.k.a. the “Qanon Shaman,” being calmly escorted through the Capitol by police officers. He was not any more disrespectful than the rest, he just happened to be in costume. In some of the security footage aired by Carlson, Chansley is seen walking near police, in the Capitol building unobstructed. He was even heard praying for the Capitol Police and other attendees, in the chambers. For this Chansley was sentenced to four years in prison. Maybe Liz Cheney or Nancy Pelosi should serve his sentence.
According to Breitbart News-
“One portion of the footage from the Capitol that Carlson discussed touched on the timing of and cause of U.S. Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick’s death. Carlson said the footage shows Sicknick was alive after he was allegedly killed by people at the Capitol and the footage was viewed by members of the January 6 Committee, who refused to release it to the public.”
Of further note, is the fact that in 2021, the D.C. Medical Examiner’s office concluded that Officer Sicnick’s death was due to natural causes, a finding the U.S. Capitol Police accepted.
“The truth does not require a majority to prevail, ladies and gentlemen. The truth is its own power. The truth will out. Never forget that.”

"Right Wing Extremists" - are you kidding me?
Have a look at these stories (ok skip Elon's toilet joke), especially the Tucker Carlson clips showing how the jailed QAnon Shamon was framed by his police escorts who politely showed him around.
This distortion of who is responsible for riots is all meant to justify government censorship in the name of fighting right-wing "misinformation".
The rise of domestic extremism in America
Be sure to view the associated Graphics following:
Domestic terrorism incidents have soared to new highs in the United States, driven chiefly by white-supremacist, anti-Muslim and anti-government extremists on the far right, according to a Washington Post analysis of data compiled by the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
The surge reflects a growing threat from homegrown terrorism not seen in a quarter-century, with right-wing extremist attacks and plots greatly eclipsing those from the far left and causing more deaths, the analysis shows. The number of all domestic terrorism incidents in the data peaked in 2020.
Since 2015, right-wing extremists have been involved in 267 plots or attacks and 91 fatalities, the data shows. At the same time, attacks and plots ascribed to far-left views accounted for 66 incidents leading to 19 deaths. “What is most concerning is that the number of domestic terror plots and attacks are at the highest they have been in decades,” said Seth Jones, director of the database project at CSIS, a nonpartisan Washington-based nonprofit that specializes in national security issues. “It’s so important for Americans to understand the gravity of the threat before it gets worse.”
More than a quarter of right-wing incidents and just under half of the deaths in those incidents were caused by people who showed support for white supremacy or claimed to belong to groups espousing that ideology, the analysis shows. Victims of all incidents in recent years represent a broad cross-section of American society, including Blacks, Jews, immigrants, LGBTQ individuals, Asians and other people of color who have been attacked by right-wing extremists wielding vehicles, guns, knives and fists.

What does Trudeau know about Beijing’s interference? (Ft. Pierre Poilievre):
Conservative leader Pierre Poilievre says that Liberals have “deep ties” to China and that a public inquiry is needed to find out what exactly Prime Minister Justin Trudeau knew about Beijing’s election interference in the 2019 and 2021 elections. Watch Poilievre’s exclusive sit down interview with True North’s Andrew Lawton.
Plus, from two doses to three, to one every few months, the Canadian government has been fairly unrelenting in its quest to get everyone in the country vaccinated and boosted. On Friday, the Public Health Agency of Canada quietly amended its guidance to no longer recommend boosters for healthy Canadians under 65, at least for now. Is this a real course correction? Yes and no, as True North’s Andrew Lawton explains.

Trudeau orders closed-door probes into Chinese election interference
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has initiated two closed-door probes into Chinese election interference that will be reviewed by a special rapporteur after facing growing calls to investigate Beijing’s influence activities.
Trudeau called a late afternoon news conference to announce that the National Security and Intelligence Committee of Parliamentarians, which reports directly to his office, will study China’s interference in the 2019 and 2021 elections.
He also said the National Security and Intelligence Review Agency, which oversees the RCMP and federal spy agencies, will examine how investigations into Chinese election meddling have been handled.
Opposition parties were highly critical of the Prime Minister’s announcement, saying that the probes would be secretive and fall far short of a much-needed public inquiry.

Released another bombshell that the Democrat-controlled media is desperate to memory-hole:
Elon Musk has put his thumb in the eyes of the Left.
That’s why he has suddenly become a villain in the press.
And Musk released another bombshell that the Democrat-controlled media is desperate to memory-hole.
Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter has turned out to be a disaster for the establishment and legacy media institutions.
Musk effectively spent $44 billion to buy receipts that exposed collusion and corruption between the state, the media, and Big Tech.
Musk has revealed the information in the Twitter File through many dispatches from various independent journalists.
The latest disclosure came from former Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi, who has become a member of the enemy class in the eyes of the corporate-controlled press.
Twitter Files 17 exposes taxpayer-funded disinfo “cottage industry”
Taibbi released Twitter Files 17, which detailed how the war on disinformation has turned into a “cottage industry.”
The dispatch focused on the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab, which gets government funding to weed out so-called foreign disinformation.
Taibbi reported that the “DFRLab is funded by the U.S. Government, specifically the Global Engagement Center (GEC). Director Graham Brookie denies DFRLab uses tax money to track Americans, saying its GEC grants have ‘an exclusively international focus.’”
However, that claim was undercut by tens of thousands of Americans who were accused of being “Hindu nationalists” in a disinformation dragnet.
DFRLab wrote to Twitter, “Hi guys. Attached you will find…around 40k twitter accounts that our researchers suspect are engaging in inauthentic behavior…and Hindu nationalism more broadly.”
Many of the people on the list balked at the assertion that they were bot accounts run by Hindu nationalists.
An account named Bobby Hailstone replied, “I have no connection to any Hindu folks…Just a Reagan Republican here in CT,”
A woman with the handle Lady_DI816 responded, “A Hindu nationalist? I’ve never even been out of this country. Let alone the state of NJ.”
A user who went by Krista Woods said bluntly, “These people are insane!”
Even Yoel Roth, Twitter’s former head of Trust and Safety, believed the Hindu nationalist rhetoric was bogus.
He responded, “I spot-checked a number of these accounts, and virtually all appear to be real people.”
“They do this in places that don’t believe in free speech”
Marysel Urbanik, another American on DFRLab’s list who happened to flee Fidel Castro’s Cuba, explained, “This is un-American…They do this in places that don’t believe in free speech.”
Someone with knowledge of the intel community agreed with Urbanik’s assessment.
According to Taibbi, a former intelligence source to him, “It’s an incubator for the domestic disinformation complex…All the shit we pulled in other countries since the Cold War, some morons decided to bring home.”
Americans can thank, in part, Barack Obama for that.
Taibbi wrote, “The Global Engagement Center is usually listed as a State Department entity. It’s not. Created in Obama’s last year, GEC is an interagency group ‘within’ State, whose initial partners included FBI, DHS, NSA, CIA, DARPA, Special Operations Command (SOCOM), and others.”
The war on terror has been turned inward on the American people under the guise of battling “disinformation.”
Tucker blows up sham J6 committee with new bombshell footage. ‘They are liars. That is conclusive.’:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson was good to his word on Monday and released previously unseen footage of the Jan. 6 protest, claiming that those such as Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, and the rest of the sham House Select Committee conclusively lied about what really happened that day.
“With that, here is the video. It doesn’t answer every question from January 6, far from it, but it does prove beyond doubt that Democrats in Congress, assisted by Adam Kinzinger and Liz Cheney, lied about what happened that day. They are liars. That is conclusive, and that fact should prevent them from ever being taken seriously again,” Carlson damningly said, laying blame on Kinzinger, Cheney, and the House Select Committee’s inquisition for destroying many, many lives.
“We’re going to get inside with footage that shows you what was actually happening inside the Capitol. The footage does not show an insurrection or a riot in progress. Instead, it shows police escorting protesters through the building, including the now infamous ‘QAnon Shaman,'” he told viewers.
Before he showed that footage, Carlson made the case that Jan. 6 was depicted as something it wasn’t and that Americans were manipulated by the left.
“We’re about to show you surveillance footage from inside the United States Capitol. The images you’ll see were recorded 26 months ago today on January 6, 2021. Until now, politicians have kept this tape hidden from the public. There is no legitimate justification for that and there never has been,” Carlson charged.
“Yet the beneficiaries of that election continue to lie about what is now obvious. The real crime, they will tell you again and again, is not what happened on Election Day, 2020. The real crime is what happened two months later, on January 6, when Donald Trump led an insurrection against the duly elected American government,” he noted.
Carlson laid out the alleged plan by Democrats to ensure that former President Trump would never run for the presidency again.
“To prove that claim and to divert attention from the details of the presidential election itself, Democrats in Congress impaneled what they called the House Select Committee on the January 6 attack. The point of that committee was to prevent Donald Trump from running for president again. In December of last year, committee members voted unanimously to refer Trump to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. Mission accomplished,” he contended.
He then gave credit to House Speaker Kevin McCarthy for releasing the footage to him so it could be reviewed and shown to the American public. Carlson was given full access to Capitol surveillance videos. No one interfered with his investigation, including Fox News.
“But what the committee did not do was explain what happened inside the Capitol on January 6. Three weeks ago, thanks to the new Republican speaker’s office, we gained access to thousands of hours of surveillance video that help answer that question. The January 6 Committee had access to this very same tape and watched much of it. But as we’re about to show you, committee members lied about what they saw and then hid the evidence from the public, as well as from January 6, criminal defendants and their lawyers. That is unforgivable,” Carlson asserted.
“Of the 40,000 or so hours of tape, most of it turned out to be irrelevant – static shots of empty rooms, in some cases far from the Capitol itself. To find relevant videotape, our producers were given use of Capitol computers with advanced mapping software. That made it easy to find what we were looking for. What we didn’t have was access to facial recognition software, and that was significant,” the conservative pundit explained.
“For more than two years, we have wondered why some in the crowd that day who seemed to be inciting violence were never indicted for it. We assumed these were federal agents of some sort. We still assume that. And in fact, there were many examples of behavior we saw in those tapes that didn’t seem to make sense: Men in civilian clothes holding doors open for protesters, escorting others to the Capitol, etc. We would love to know who these people were, but as of tonight, we don’t know and because we don’t know, we’re not going to put their faces on the screen and suggest they were federal agents. That would be irresponsible,” the Fox News host remarked.
He detailed that there were a number of mysteries they could not solve with the video footage they had. One of those was the shooting of Ashli Babbitt by Officer Michael Byrd. Carlson did point out that she was small in stature, unarmed, and obviously posed no threat. There were no security cameras near where she was gunned down, so her death still has many questions that need answering.
“And one more thing: Virtually no one in Washington, Republican or Democrat, certainly not in the news media, wanted to see this tape released tonight. That’s why it’s remained hidden for more than two years. In recent weeks, the usual hyenas in Congress and on cable news have been howling about we are putting lives at risk by showing this tape to the public,” Carlson reported.
“Given that these are the very same people who support open borders and defunding the police, it is hard to take their complaints seriously. But we do take security seriously. So, before airing any of this video, we checked first with the Capitol Police. We’re happy to say their reservations were minor and for the most part, they were reasonable. In the end, the only change that we made was in blurring the details of a single interior door in the Capitol building. You’re unlikely even to notice it when we show you, and we are confident it does not affect our reporting,” he stated.
Carlson would go on to show that despite how it was framed that day, the majority of protesters were little more than “sightseers.”
“The protestors were angry. They believed the election they had just voted in had been unfairly conducted. They were right,” Carlson claimed. “In retrospect, it is clear the 2020 election was a grave betrayal of American democracy. Given the facts that have since emerged about that election, no honest person can deny it.”
“The footage does not show an insurrection or a riot in progress,” he posited. “Taken as a whole, the video record does not support the claim that Jan. 6 was an insurrection. In fact, it demolishes that claim. And that’s exactly why the Democratic Party and its allies in the media prevented you from seeing it. By controlling the images you are allowed to view from Jan. 6, they controlled how the public understood that day. They could lie about what happened and you would never know the difference.”
“The overwhelming majority weren’t [violent],” Carlson concluded. “They were peaceful. They were orderly and meek. These were not insurrectionists. They were sightseers. Footage from inside the Capitol overturns the story you’ve heard about Jan. 6. Protesters queue up in neat little lines. They give each other tours outside the speaker’s office. They take cheerful selfies and they smile. They’re not destroying Capitol. They obviously revere the Capitol. They’re there because they believe the election was stolen from them. They believe in the system.”

This is a good thing for every one of every faith to know about so you can understand key Catholic and Orthodox expectations of the future.
Not all Catholics who study prophecy are in full agreement with the above. A popular group of Catholics on the website Countdown to the Kingdom ignore the Russian Orthodox seers who envisioned a revival of the Byzantine Empire (the longest lasting Empire in history) which could easily fit the description of the Great Monarch (see attached) who sits of an Era of Peace before the return of Satan. They also ignore Jews who envision a revival of Temple worship and the original Promised Land which includes a large portion of Saudi Arabia. And finally, they ignore Protestants who prophecy that virtual Babylon will fall in an hour, and the Anti-Christ figure will appear to be dead, only to resurrect again. None of this is in the Countdown to the Kingdom timeline. To correct these oversights all they have to do is move the Reign of Anti-Christ to a period before the celestial Warning and Illumination of Conscience. In other words, recognize that the Restrainer has already been removed and Lawlessness has arrived. Anti-Christ is in charge today. But not for long. Anti-Christ will come back after Russia rebuilds a Holy Roman Empire for him to hi-jack and rule, and Israel rebuilds a Third Temple for him to hi-jack and sit in.

Pyramids in Antarctica:
· Pyramids found on the Antarctica, and only God knows how many more are over there under all the snow – which proves there was a same civilization on all of the continents, prior to the Ice-Age, or weather manipulation from the evil parasites controlling the Earth.
· This is the real reason why there is Atlantic treaty in the first place, due to so many of these structures still being under snow and ice.
· This evidence goes against everything we have been taught in school and shatters the false narrative of how civilization started out very primitive and became more technologically advanced. We were never primitive, at least not here on Earth.
KASH - Kashyap Pramod Patel:
· KASH_ Kashyap Pramod Patelserved as chief of staff to the Acting United States Secretary of Defense under President Donald Trump. Patel has worked at the United States National Security Council and United States House of Representatives and was previously a federal public defender, a federal prosecutor working on National Security Cases and was a legal liaison to the United States Armed Forces.
· Why is Kash Patel on Q channels and networks doing over 80 interviews this past year on programs that openly support Q, Q Patriots and Q Anons?
· Why is Kash letting everyone know the Deep State is operating the Mainstream Media at the same time Trump is going after Social Media and Mainstream Media directly? Trump publicly calls out Fox News for Election Interference (Treason] while Kash is hitting the Q circles and podcasts letting everyone know the Election was stolen (Treason).
· Trump gave Military Communication drops against Rockefellers and Rothschilds in the US who control DARPA, CIA, Deep State Pentagon – who control the Mainstream Media.
· In Trump’s latest speech, the codes were sent worldwide for Alliance Operations to go after their Deep State Mainstream Media in open operations. These commands are public. The CIA is watching when Trump speaks and drops open Military Communications.
· Within hours Musk went after the China Virus, cover up and exposure about the manmade virus (lab leak). Through Musk the story hit all major countries with minutes. Europe, UK, Canada and Australia reports started posting the lab leak of the manmade virus. The explosions of Musk talking about the lab leaks hit the Deep State Chinese Communist Party and they threatened Musk about exposing the Wuhan connections.
· Military Intel: The White Hats are getting ready to expose the U.S. stolen elections on a greater scale. Musk hidden Twitter Election files will drop before summer. A huge wave of information is going to drop simultaneously.
· The trending topics will be US stolen Election 2020, Trump was right, SCOTUS and US Treason.
· There are forces Behind the Scenes that are going after the stolen 2020 Election (Treason).
· The White Hat Military Intelligence Alliance has released super AI Bots and AI Tech that’s going to disrupt the Deep State AI Systems in Google, YouTube, Twitter and Big Tech.
· It’s all connected to the Military exposing the stolen 2020 Election scam.
· It's known that it’s in the best interest of the Deep State to get Trumparrested, but other counter measures were in place.
· If Trump gets arrested the Game Theory is in place and a huge massive Military Operation will expose and kick into high gear the Deep State connection to the CIA, Obama, Clintons, Bush, Rockefeller. Trump gets arrested.
· It's in the White Hat Alliance’s best interest for Trump to get arrested. It’s a powerful Chess Move that will be explosive as it is connected to bringing down the CIA.
· Behind the Scene the Military is divided. US Generals will take the greatest jump of their life to secure US safety and the Constitution by making huge moves against the Deep State inside the Pentagon, CIA and Military commands.
