Thursday 5-30-24


Verses for today:


Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And a light unto my path.

Psalm 119:105 KJV


Heaviness in the heart of man maketh it stoop: But a good word maketh it glad.

Proverbs 12:25 KJV


For I have satiated the weary soul, and I have replenished every sorrowful soul.

Jeremiah 31:25 KJV



Cracker Barrel is tanking under the new girlboss CEO but one lad thinks he knows how to turn it around:

·May 29, 2024

Yes, this really happened. CEO Julie Felss Masino says Cracker Barrel, the beloved restaurant that draws people for its old-world charm, says it isn't relevant and needs to change with the times.

To fix the problem, she suggests charging more, changing decor, and offering "green chili cornbread."

None of this will actually help the restaurant (her statement actually hurt their stock). But in a world where brands are treated as IP-mining operations (see: Disney), girlbosses think they can tweak the input/outputs and get the pleebs to come spend cash.

But that's not why people go to Cracker Barrel (or anywhere, for that matter).

Before we get to the fix, let's look at how bad the problem is:

Celebrating Pride Month and calling your own brand irrelevant was pretty dumb, eh?

I grew up going to Cracker Barrel on road trips. After my parents had spent hours navigating traffic and construction in the pre-GPS world, the restaurant was an oasis for us. My parents would get a moment to rest while my brother and I played checkers by the roaring fire. The food was hearty, and the decor reminded you of the people who built America. The store was full of fun finds. The rocking chairs outside were the most comfortable in the world.

As a father, I now share this tradition with my kids. Cracker Barrel is one of the few places that I know will be family friendly, right off the highway, and big enough to let my kids stretch their legs after hours on the road. All of that means something.

Which is why I nominate this random gentleman from the internet to be the new CEO:

It's amazing to me that the average person understands what all the fancy suits can't.


Walmart is Flirting with Disaster with this wokeAd Campaign:

Retail stores are in flux.


Bidenomics has made people think twice about their discretionary spending habits.

Now Walmart is flirting with disaster with this “woke” ad campaign.

Walmart signaled trouble in Joe Biden’s economy when it announced that it was slashing corporate jobs.

When the largest employer in the country is cutting jobs, that suggests problems could be afoot.

Now Walmart is causing another stir for a completely different reason.

Walmart Pride

The retail giant is pushing a promotion for the upcoming Pride Month in June.

In 2022, Pride Month celebrations were over the top.

However, the Left chose to scale back in 2023 amid the Bud Light controversy.

The beer brand entered into a sponsorship deal with social media influencer Dylan Mulvaney, a biological male pretending to be a girl, and it killed Bud Light’s sales.


Despite a concerted effort to market to a young male audience, sales have not rebounded.

Bud Light may never reclaim its title as the best-selling beer in America.

The backlash to Mulvaney served a warning sign that people were not on board with radical gender theory being shoved in their faces.

Around the time of the Mulvaney backlash, big-box store Target caught flak for promoting “woke” nonsense aimed at children.

Promoting Satanism

Target had advertisements for transgender swimwear, and even sold paraphernalia that said, “Satan respects pronouns.”

In response to the Satanic merchandise, the designer wrote on social media, “He means to you what you need him to mean. So for me, Satan is hope, compassion, equality, and love. So, naturally, Satan respects pronouns. He loves all LGBT+ people. I went with a variation of Baphomet for this design, a deity who themself is a mixture of genders, beings, ideas, and existences. They reject binary stereotypes and expectations. Perfect.”


Customers were outraged, and Target got the message.

A Target insider told Fox News in May 2023, “We were given 36 hours, told to take all of our Pride stuff, the entire section, and move it into a section that’s a third the size. From the front of the store to the back of the store, you can’t have anything on mannequins and no large signage…We call our customers ‘guests,’ there is outrage on their part. This year, it is just exponentially more than any other year. . .I think given the current situation with Bud Light, the company is terrified of a Bud Light situation.”


People were not excited to see far-left indoctrination at the store.

Apparently, Walmart is dipping its toe in the water in advance of Pride Month 2024.

But if last year was any indication, shoppers are not interested in having 30 days of propaganda presented to them.

Meanwhile, Walmart is also dealing with rampant theft, which is why some stores are getting rid of their self-checkout lanes.


A Walmart spokesperson said in a statement, “We’ve decided to remove self-checkout lanes and replace them with staffed lanes at select locations. . .These decisions were based on several factors, including feedback from associates and customers, shopping patterns and business needs in the area. We believe the changes will improve the in-store shopping experience and give our associates the chance to provide more personalized and efficient service.”

Pride Month hasn’t even begun, and Walmart is already causing a stir.

Scientists solve why killer whales are attacking boats worldwide

'We don't want to see more boats being sunk and we don't want to see people in distress,' Zerbini told The Post. 'But we also don't want to see the animals being hurt. And we have to remember that this is their habitat and we're in the way.' Since the advice for vessels to flee from any possible whale interaction in May of last year, the number of attacks has declined by 70 percent.

In order for there to be peace in the Middle East, both sides must first agree on the definition of the term. As long as Israel defines peace as the absence of war, and the Arabs define peace as the absence of Israel, there can be no peace.

I had the honour of attending the Yom HaZikaron, Memorial Day Ceremony on the Mount of Olives in Israel, honouring soldiers who have died to protect Israel from invasion.


This year it was particularly solemn: October 7 and the hostages remain heavy in the heart. The first thing we were told was “in case of a siren, drop to the ground, and put your hands over your head.” In all my years, and I have lived many, I have never gone anywhere where I have been told what to do in case of a missile threat. Yet, for most, this was normal. In Israel, the sound of a siren, today, means run to a safe space when possible.


I knew about safe spaces on our campuses: for those who feel threatened. When Trump was elected there were safe spaces for students to cry. Today, if called by the wrong pronoun and feel unsafe, there is a safe space for you, too.

Safe spaces take on a whole new meaning in Israel. Walking down the street and you hear a siren, a warning of incoming missiles, there are signs directing you to the nearest safe space. Not close enough to a safe place, you lie down on the ground and cover your head with your hands. I thought it would be safe to go into a store. No, I was told. If the store has glass windows, it is not safe as you could be harmed by the splintering glass.


I learned about safe spaces when I was in the Gaza Envelope – the place of the BARBARIC Muslim attack on the Jews October 7. Just about to get back into our car, a siren went off and the soldier to whom we were speaking, a 23 year old female soldier screamed to me, run, run, run as she pointed to the bomb shelter by the road.

We saw the missiles fired and then we saw Israel’s response.


Despite the run for cover, I never felt unsafe anywhere in Israel. It is a proud, bustling, busy, growing country.

Sadly, Canadian and American youth have no understanding of the real meaning of a safe space. They have no idea how sheltered they are. I met soldiers all over Israel; many called Lone Soldiers, who returned to Israel to fight for her right to exist. And to me, they are still children, young, early 20’s, younger than one of my grandchildren; some wearing braces on their teeth, in charge of protecting Israel from destruction. And they are proud. Far from being children, Israelis become adults at a very early age. To read the full article, click here.




This article must be read twice overfrom A to Z -- and saved for posterity

By Laurie B. Regan

Every once in a while, there is a seminal article written that elucidates political calculations not obvious on their surface. In particular, foreign policy matters tend to be complicated to the point that most Americans focus little attention on understanding the motivations of presidents’ foreign policy decisions despite their broad national security implications.


One of the most important columns that comes to mind is Michael Doran’s brilliant essay from 2015 entitled Obama’s Secret Iran Strategy in which Doran explains Barack Obama’s motivation for empowering Iran as a regional hegemon at the expense of U.S. national security and regional alliances. Read more.





Even without the comparison, the decision by Karim Khan is an antisemitic abomination.


The only thing surprising about the decision by International Criminal Court chief prosecutor Karim Khan on Monday was that it included Hamas, alongside Israel, as deserving of target. Otherwise, it shouldn’t have come as a shock to anyone who’s been paying attention.

Given the ongoing harassment of the Jewish state by the similarly named International Court of Justice, also situated in The Hague, it was just a matter of time before the ICC would spring into abhorrent action. Read more here.




Julia Sebutinde, vice president of the ICJ—the principal United Nations judicial arm located in The Hague—raised in her dissenting opinion on Friday.


“This directive, which could be erroneously misunderstood as mandating a unilateral ceasefire in part of Gaza, amounts to micromanaging the hostilities in Gaza by restricting Israel’s ability to pursue its legitimate military objectives, while leaving its enemies, including Hamas, free to attack without Israel being able to respond,”  For the full article, click here.






House Republican Conference Chairwoman Elise Stefanik delivered an address to members of the Israeli Knesset in Jerusalem following an invitation from Speaker Amir Ohana highlighting how America stands with Israel and House Republicans’ fight to protect Jewish students on American college campuses. 

Rep. Stefanik is the highest ranking member of the House of Representatives to visit Israel since the October 7th terrorist attacks. For the full article, click here.





You are fighting U.S. enemies — "You must win this war"


Former U.S. presidential candidate and former UN ambassador Nikki Haley visited Israel's northern border on Tuesday, emphasizing the importance of Israel's victory in its ongoing conflicts. 

Accompanied by former Israeli ambassador to the UN and current Knesset member Danny Danon, Haley expressed strong support for Israel, stating, "America stands by Israel. Israel is fighting the enemies of the U.S. today.

“Don't stop until you win."

During their visit, Haley and Danon met with Sheikh Mowafak Tarif and other dignitaries of the Druze community. They then proceeded to Ras al-Naqoura, where they received a security briefing from Colonel Yuval Bezek. Read more here.

EV Crash Hoax:

Highway explosion video misrepresented as EV collision:

Social media users are claiming a video shows a fiery highway explosion sparked by a crash between electric vehicles. This is false; the footage dates to 2013 and shows a truck stacked with gas cylinders that burst into flames after it hit a bus in Russia.

"This is what happens when two electric vehicles collide?????? Get these things off the roads!!!" says a July 30, 2023 post from Cynthia McKinney, a former Democratic US congresswoman who later joined the Green Party.

The post links to a BitChute video showing a series of fiery explosions on a freeway, with the blazes and smoke shooting high into the sky.

Similar posts shared the same clip in various languages across Twitterwhich is rebranding as "X," and other platforms including FacebookYouTube and TikTok.


The posts spread after a cargo ship loaded with electric vehicles caught fire off the Dutch coast in late July.

But the highway footage is years-old and shows an incident set off not by an electric vehicle crash, but by a truck carrying gas cylinders.

Reverse image and keyword searches revealed the same footage posted by Russian YouTube channels as early as July 13, 2013 (archived here).

Other videos posted the same day show the fire from different angles (archived herehere and here), with one clip showing the moment the truck slammed into a bus in front of it (archived here).

Russian news agencies including RIA Novosti reported at the time that the crash involved an Isuzu truck carrying 119 gas cylinders and a bus with 28 people on board, with the fire caused by the cylinders exploding in the continuous blasts captured on video (archived here). The dispatch said the driver was injured and received assistance, but it did not report any other casualties.


Some individual cylinders can be seen catching fire or shooting across the pavement in the YouTube footage of the accident.

AFP geolocated the footage to a stretch of European route E115 near the Moscow Automobile Ring Road in Moscow (archived here).

The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the independent agency that investigates major transportation accidents, has not examined any collision involving two electric vehicles crashing into each other, a spokesperson told AFP.


The share of electric vehicles in the United States is small but growing. Isuzu introduced its first all-electric commercial truck in March.

Electric vehicle fire risk

There is a fire risk to electric vehicles, with rare blazes posing a new challenge for first responders because when they occur they last longer, burn hotter and require more water to extinguish.

A strong enough collision could theoretically trigger an explosion if the battery pack's encasing were to break and the battery cells inside were damaged, said mechanical engineering professor Elham Sahraei, director of Temple University's Electric Vehicle Safety Lab.


"If the crash is severe enough that the protective shield gets damaged and the battery cells inside get punctured, the kind of footage in the videos would not be unreasonable or impossible," Sahraei told AFP.

The University of Central Florida's Yang Yang, who has developed technology aimed at preventing electric vehicle fires, agreed.


"If two (electric vehicles) have a collision and break the battery pack, the batteries will have a short circuit, and the stored chemical energy in the batteries will be released as thermal energy, which is explosion or burning," Yang told AFP in an email. "Something like you light fireworks in a very confined space." But the majority of accidents between electric vehicles can be expected to be similar to those involving gasoline-powered cars, Sahraei said.

Battery packs in electric cars are covered by sturdy trays and protective shields that should prevent damage to the battery during crashes of "average severity," she said.


Joe Young, media relations director for the nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, said that the organization has run about 60 high-speed crash tests of various electric vehicle models, with none leading to fires. He told AFP he did not know of any reliable data counting post-crash fires among the cars in the real world.

Overall, there remain a lot of unknowns with regard to the safety of electric cars, Sahraei said. And with far fewer of them on the roads compared with gas vehicles, the data is indeed limited.


One 2022 report (archived here) from the online car insurance marketplace AutoinsuranceEZ, which analyzed data from the NTSB and Bureau of Labor Statistics, found that hybrid vehicles had the most fires per 100,000 sales, followed by gasoline vehicles and electric vehicles.

Newcastle University's Paul Christensen, whose research focuses on lithium-ion battery fires and safety, pointed to separate data from EV FireSafe (archived here), an Australian company focused on the issue.


The company has logged nearly 500 electric vehicle battery fires globally between 2010 and June 2023, categorizing each by its cause, location and whether it was an ignition or an explosion.

"I am not aware of any collisions involving (electric vehicles) resulting in explosions," Christensen told AFP.

AFP has previously debunked false posts claiming an electric bus caught fire in Kenya, as well as other misinformation about electric cars herehere and here.

Radio Blackouts Possible:

A 60% chance of Radio Blackouts on Tuesday and throughout the rest of the week.

A powerful solar event is expected to happen this week, with the potential to cause colorful northern light displays and widespread radio blackouts.

A Powerful Jet of Plasma

Earlier this month, the sun released coronal mass ejections (CMEs), the most powerful jet of plasma in 20 years. The G5 solar eruption collapsed US power grids and caused nationwide blackouts. Meanwhile, communication disruptions were also experienced in various parts of the world.


No significant impacts were felt from the storm. However, some farmers reported loss of access to their GPS systems which forced them to pause operations. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), less severe problems were reported because they were prepared.


The sunspot, named AR3664, is currently facing away from Earth. However, astronomical data reveals that this region will move in view by the end of the week, with the potential to release solar storms toward the Earth.

Sunspot AR3664 first emitted solar flares on May 10 before it rotated away from the Earth's view. Last May 11, the same sunspot smashed the Earth with dozens of energized jets of plasma, causing NOAA to issue a severe geomagnetic storm watch.


As the sunspot reemerges, it is expected to release a powerful geo-storm toward us.

On May 27, the sunspot that caused this solar storm swung back around and unleashed a powerful flare toward our planet. That same day, the Sun released 17 small solar flares and one major X2.9 flare, the largest class ranking to date.

A Looming Solar Threat

According to the NOAA, there was a 60% chance of radio blackouts on May 28 and throughout the rest of the week. The solar storm alert was first issued by NOAA in 2005 when our planet was hit with the highest amount of radiation in a half-century.


The incoming storms are not expected to reach levels that were seen earlier this month. Instead, they are anticipated to cause a level three (R3) radio blackout which can last from minutes to hours, affecting GPS systems and radio communication.


GPS systems get disrupted from solar events because the radiation released by the solar flare smashes the magnetic sphere that covers our planet. As a result, it causes fluctuations in the ionosphere.

Located in the Earth's upper atmosphere, the ionosphere absorbs and reflects the signals during geomagnetic storms. This results in static and disruptions in the signals received by GPS systems.


The unusual event that took place earlier this month caused disruption of power grids, GPS, farming equipment, and satellites in orbit. Experts monitored the solar flare that happened on Monday in preparation for the same issues.

Images of the Sun releasing the solar flare were captured across the world over the last two days. They were observed in Virginia, Arizona, and even Italy and Chile.


Authorities warn that the powerful eruptions might only be the start of more extreme solar flares that can hit us next year. If it ever happens, this will be the worst geo-storm in 165 years.

A geomagnetic or solar storm refers to a major disturbance of the Earth's magnetosphere, the region around our planet which is controlled by our planet's magnetic field. Aside from the blackout, aurora displays are also expected to spread across northeast Canada, although NOAA has not yet released official forecasts related to the solar storm event.

Un-Jabbed B.C. Nurses MIGHT get their Jobs Back:

After two and a half years, nurses in British Columbia who refused to be coerced into taking two COVID shots still haven't gotten their jobs back…

Every other province has already dropped these mandates — so what's stopping B.C.?

I spoke to Corinne Mori to find out. Corine helped save countless lives as a nurse in the B.C. Interior until the province's no-jab, no-pay policy kicked her to the curb.

She told me about the long-awaited outcome of hundreds of grievances filed by COVID-jab-free nurses.

Click here for more.

On May 23, the B.C. Nurses Union announced that it had reached an agreement with the Health Employers Association of B.C. that permits unjabbed nurses to get their jobs back.

That is, depending on whether or not Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry rescinds or amends her COVID vaccine mandate by January 31, 2025.

Corinne explained, "This decision very much reflects that the enforcement of our legal representation is going to be totally dependent on the election results in the fall and who is in power in the provincial government."

Many terminated nurses feel their union abandoned them — I was also joined by chartered financial analyst Lex Acker, who explained a potential conflict of interest that may have caused union bosses to turn their backs on their members.

‘Happy March Holiday Season’ Instead of Easter: Veterans Affairs Explains Decision Behind Greeting:

The minister of Veterans Affairs says her department didn’t wish a Happy Easter to veterans and serving members of the military on Good Friday because there were other holidays during the month of March.

“Given all the holidays being celebrated over the month of March, including Easter, a decision was made to acknowledge all those celebrating a holiday in the month of March,” Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor said in the House of Commons on May 24.


“An Easter-specific post was published on Easter Sunday,” she added.

In March, Muslims began Ramadan, Jews celebrated Purim, and Hindus Holi.

Ms. Petitpas Taylor was responding to an order paper question from Tory MP Michael Barrett in relation to the social media post from Veterans Affairs on March 29, when Christians celebrated Good Friday—the day marking Jesus Christ’s crucifixion.

“We want to wish Veterans, current members of the [Canadian Forces] and [RCMP] and their families a happy March holiday season!” said the social media post, which drew many reactions.


The EPOCH Times



Mr. Barrett commented on the post at the time, asking if Veterans Affairs was “too woke to acknowledge either the cultural or religious significance of Easter?” He added that the majority of Canadians are Christians and “nobody worth worrying about is offended by wishes of a Happy Easter.”


Ms. Petitpas Taylor said the post had been drafted by her department’s social media team and had been approved up to the director level. She said no disciplinary measures were warranted or taken in regard to the post.

“However, the internal approval process is being reviewed with the goal of ensuring greater oversight on social media plans,” she said.

While the text of the controversial post didn’t mention Easter, the picture attached shows two female sailors preparing a tray of eggs in a kitchen.


The ALT text describing the photo says: “Sailor First Class Saje Olson and Sailor First Class Megan Ivany standing side by side in a kitchen smiling while preparing a special Easter meal for the crew of HMCS FREDERICTON during Operation REASSURANCE, on 09 April 2023 in the Mediterranean Sea.”

The post from Veterans Affairs follows other moves by the military to become more inclusive, which has led to banning military chaplains from saying prayers during official functions ahead of Remembrance Day last November. The military slightly backtracked following backlash.


Other government bodies have also faced backlash over criticism of Christian holidays. The House of Commons passed a unanimous motion in support of Christmas after the Canadian Human Rights Commission portrayed the holiday as discriminatory.

The commission wrote in an October discussion paper that “statutory holidays related to Christianity, including Christmas and Easter,” represent an “obvious example” of “systemic religious discrimination.”
