Stitching Hacks… or something like that

I needed a break from the SPIN info war today – so sick of the FOX crap show… Very pathetic and it will fall apart quickly if they have to run more aggressive agitprop. It’s already looking very bizarro. But hey, agitpropeteers are going, to um, well agitprop,lol.  Every time I walk out in the sun room to check on my husband,  I laugh at this effort. My husband reacts to all of their agitprop salvos – I can tell when a new one launches, because I can hear him swearing at the TV about damned liberals trying to take our guns, immigration hysteria, and on and on.

Thank God, he is doing what I advised him to do, take some FOX breaks and listen to some country music. Yes, we do manage to get some peace here, when he turns off the FOX agitprop incitement.

I started working on another tissue box cover – same easy quilt block patterns. This one is the same old arrowhead pattern for one side. Not too sure of my color choices.  Too pastel?  This one will have to be for a little girl I think – maybe one of my oldest daughter’s foster daughters.  I still have several children’s plastic canvas projects that I need to get done.

Oh, I found this pink spooled yarn at Hobby Lobby.  $1.39 for 20 yards, which in plastic canvas projects goes a long ways – it’s an option to consider rather than buying full skeins of yarn for projects, where you don’t need a lot of one color.

If you buy a full skein of yarn, of which you only need a small amount, you will have a lot of extra yarn sitting there.  Crafting options in buying yarn for craft projects, I think, depend on whether you’re trying to acquire a variety of yarn colors, so you have them on hand for future projects or if this project is a one-time effort.  I used to advise my customers, when I was a department manager in a fabrics and crafts department, that you really need to decide what kind of crafter or stitcher you are.  Are you just planning to do this one project or are you planning to really throw yourself into this type of craft or needlework medium?

Let me assure, Craft Hoarding is real, LOL.

It’s very easy to want to buy everything when you start a new type of crafting or needlework endeavor.  Take some deep breaths between craft shopping sprees.  Start thinking about how much crafting stuff is “enough” and when you start to see the craft piles beginning to grow, here’s my craft hoarding advice.  Stop watching more YouTube crafting and needlework videos, because you will see a zillion more things that you want to rush out and buy.  Start organizing your craft and needlework supplies (yes, heal thyself here for me – because mine still needs a lot of work).

I have probably 6 or 8 packs of homecraft needles.  Over the years, because my craft and sewing room looks more like an episode of Hoarders, than an organized work space, when I find myself needing just one particular needle in that pack  (a curved needle, which I use very occasionally, like when I am repairing the wool-blend braided rugs in my kitchen), when I do need one, often after a half-hour of looking through bags, boxes, totes and baskets of disorganized supplies, I usually just give up and run to Walmart and buy another pack of homecraft needles.

This yarn says it is made in Turkey and although it is 100% acrylic craft yarn, it sort of has a “wool yarn” feel to it.  I didn’t know how it would go as far as coverage, but it works fine and can be used with other acrylic yarns.  Well, ya know… leave it to Turkey to produce a 100% acrylic yarn that looks, really, much like quality wool yarn, lol…

Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day!  No politics today, except to report that Debbie Wasserman Schultz must be the bimbo to beat all bimbos in America…  worthy of banners across the bottom of the screen to warn you , so you can prepare yourself…  Good, God, Almighty…

I had another allergy shot this morning.  There’s a required half-hour wait after these shots, so I sit in this small waiting area, near where they administer the shots at a local Army hospital.  So, I’m sitting there trying to block out some Congressional hearing that is playing on the TV, tuned to C-Span, then DWS speaks…  Anyway, rather than go on, here’s the link to the C-Span hearing and I’ll let you judge for yourself: HERE.

Quiet day here, with my big plans to get off this computer and go bake more chocolate chip cookies for my husband.  He asked if I could make him more cookies yesterday afternoon, so I ran to my local Walmart Neighborhood Market store to get more cookie ingredients… as usual, just after getting back from a trip to that store, for some other stuff.   He loves chocolate chip cookies, correction, he loves homemade chocolate chip cookies.

Did I ever mention, why I am getting allergy shots?  My husband has 4 dogs that sit with him in the sunroom and they are his only company He has made taking care of the dogs his daily work, invests way more money than anyone should in their vet care, with three of them being on several medications.  A lot of days, I believe those dogs are the only thing that keep him getting up each day and having the will to go on.  He doesn’t have any friends who come to visit him and because he has a mental disorder, people avoid him.  He started drooling sometimes too.  His short-term memory loss is profound, yet he still sits every day and tries to read books, because he has always loved to read.

I am allergic to dogs, so I decided to try the allergy shots, because the dogs aren’t leaving.  I started last September.  Honestly, I think they’re starting to help too:-)

Have a nice afternoon!

A great speech!

I remembered this amazing youtube video – so much for the housework, I am going to watch this video first.  These guys defending America are something else… enough to give a girl heart palpitations with their “take that hill” attitude, lol.

Have a nice day!

Define “imminent threat”

 

Still getting up too early these days…  Over on YouTube this morning, looking for music to listen to, lol.  Here’s a real blast from the past.  I loved the Beatles. I love this song!   My oldest sister, who is 8 years older than me,  had a lot of records, I loved listening to all her records, because the Beatles were more her age group than mine, being a teen in the 70s.  I loved her Barbra Streisand albums too.  Nice break from the SPIN.   Yesterday, geesh walked past the TV, where  my husband has FOX News on constantly in the sunroom – they were busy recycling “the North Korea crisis” SPIN  again…  Old Seb and John Bolton, “President Trump must do something” ..blah, blah, blah, “They’ve got labor camps there”…

No shit, but it used to be real events that triggered an international crisis – now it’s Seb Gorka(God, that man is an idiot, imo),General Keane and John Bolton…  What’s up with that???  The North Korean nuke crisis has been an “imminent threat” for the last decade, always SPUN with a sliding timeline of when North Korea is expected to have nuclear weapons…  Color me just a bit tired of all these “crises”.  North Korea might pop off a few missiles to gin it up,  pressure the US, but “imminent threat” needs some serious work on defining more precisely.  Just my opinion.  I’ve got to do some housework today… if I don’t get sidetracked by youtube videos, lol.  Have a nice day:-)

Destiny…

Looking through quotes this morning.  Here’s one I like:

“Ideals are like stars; you will not succeed in touching them with your hands.  But like the seafaring man on the desert of waters; you choose them as your guides, and following them you will reach your destiny'”

— Carl Schurz

The Plan

“A republic may, likewise, be brought to its original form, without recourse to ordinances for enforcing justice, by the mere virtues of a single citizen, by reason that these virtues are of such influence and authority that good men love to imitate them, and bad men are ashamed to depart from them.”

—-Discourses on Livy, Book III, Chapter 1, For a sect or Commonwealth to last long it must often be brought back to its Beginnings

Many years ago, in my messages of mhere adventure, I wondered how on earth to bring this story to a conclusion.  I had already written about the SPIN brand of information warfare on the Excite messages boards, during the scorched earth impeachment mess.  I had realized it relied on a mass media domination strategy akin to swarming.  All the ideas that floated through my head were centered on how to, not only, break through the message wall, but how to DEFEAT SPIN information warfare in America.

The usual military strategic thinker, myself included, would keep focusing on ways to overwhelm it or shut it down.  That is how the military strategic mind assesses “defeating the enemy”.  Every avenue my mind could imagine focused on overwhelming SPIN.  I pondered and pondered, thinking, like a guy, – the overwhelming force approach and all those options were scary, especially for someone like me who abhors violence and is scared of guns.  So, then I thought, about Sun Tzu, and the answer hit me.  Just speak the truth, day in, day out, calmly, politely and with me, there’s gonna be some snark, because that’s just ME, lol.  A whole lot of other people will need to speak the truth too.

“For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill.  To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.”

— Sun Tzu, Offensive Strategy

In 2016, Donald Trump, through a series of events, first the corrupt Bill Clinton triangulation (GOP insurgency) effort, giving Trump BILLIONS of dollars in free media, then Trump’s gift for showmanship, acquiring some 24/7 media avenues (FOX, major pundits, newspapers) and most of all his personal Twitter account, managed to break through the Left’s lock on the 24/7 news SPIN cycle, which had been maintained since the 90s.

Trump managed to break through the Left’s SPIN lock, by outrunning their OODA loops, he could “steal the show”, often several times a day, with an outrageous tweet or comment, which resulted in faster SPIN cycles and that left his SPIN “Fake News” agitprop operators (most of the mainstream media) recycling through old Trump SPIN messaging. They were back on the “Trump the fascist messaging – with the orchestrated military parade controversy again). The Trump taxes, Trump women, Trump the racist are all orchestrated SPIN agitprop messaging salvos.

While Trump did break through their messaging wall, both sides are locked down in this scorched earth, yet neither can suppress nor defeat the other, so on it drags.

The Left’s SPIN apparatus is headed by the Clintons, it includes a large network of operatives and people, such as Terry Lenzner, who provide the Clintons with their own private, global intelligence apparatus. The Cody Shearer memo, speaks to the Lenzner connection again. Also closely aligned with the Clintons is Sid Blumenthal, who runs the Clintons SPIN agitprop operations, which probably explains why I was hunted down and attacked.  I suspect there was hostile infiltration in the Clinton’s SPIN operations effort then & now.   The Clintons also have several friendly retired generals, to bolster whatever SPIN, they are peddling.  One of those Clinton-friendly generals was recruited in 1998. How many others were involved remains an open question.  Sid Blumenthal’s operations need to be investigated.

In my search for a way to defeat SPIN, those many years ago, I kept asking myself:  What is SPIN?  By focusing on the information warfare aspect of it, I was missing the simple, obvious answer.  What defeats SPIN (LIES) is the TRUTH.  My objective is to peacefully and politely, find a national platform to speak the TRUTH.   My other imperatives are that no violence be used in this effort and that no laws be broken.  I believe in playing by the rules and in America that is The Constitution.

Gaining that foothold on the national stage has not been achieved, yet, but that is my goal. I am not alone, otherwise I would have already been silenced (been there, done that many times over the years, with computer “issues”. How many people are helping me, I have no earthly idea. That is the truth – I don’t know.  My plan is very simple really – WHEN I get a foothold on the national stage, I intend to stand there, day in, day out and speak the truth, peacefully and politely.   Let’s call it “Sue’s Storytime Hour”,  since Trump’s already got the road rallies aced and the Clintons own the 24/7 mainstream media airwaves.   I’d like just a few minutes a day to give reporters my side of the story, to be entered into the national SPIN info war mix too;-)  Anything wrong with that?  I always try to be nice to people, so I intend to just be ME. I wrote my ideas on this in my Penzu journals, so if the 2 state judges, who have my password, are reading that – there it is out in the open – the only thing that can defeat a SPIN tsunami, where they will turn my friends and family against me, put them up there to present me as some “threat” or deranged person is to come forward and speak.  Hopefully, I’ll have a few other good guys helping me speak the truth.  America is long overdue for some heaping doses of high-octane brand THE TRUTH!

I was rather alarmed yesterday, when my one son sent me a private facebook message joking about some horrible computer game he was playing “Plague” or something like that.  My immediate thought, was “Oh shit, what if they lie to these generals that this is a bioweapon” emergency”… In 1998, they lied to a retired general, to recruit him to attack me in my home, all over comments, which I had posted about SPIN … and…  comments such as “no one is above the law”.  I refused to be silenced and kept arguing against their SPIN messaging,  pointing out how it was LIES.  They couldn’t silence me.

So, think about that – what happened in 2016 with the online trolls, in comment sections, was considered such a new threat, but it happened to me in 1998 on the Excite message boards…

That indicates, to me at least, that they have been operating with our national security people, unaware, until the last few years.  With the attack on me, the one thing I can guarantee is the general who was played to attack an enlisted family – was lied to – he was deliberately fed false intelligence.  He would not ever have attacked my home otherwise. This isn’t about me – it’s about they turned American soldiers against each other – for partisan political purposes. That can not stand in America – it must be exposed.

When this is over all I really want to know is why people, many in my own family, believed all these lies and why do they hate me this much?  That’s the answer I want.  I try to be nice to everyone, I like to help people and I don’t even have a speeding ticket.  I like to cook and sew and make gifts for my family and friends.  I like to do volunteer work.

I just wanted to write this – anyone reading this not aware of the whole long messages of mhere story, I am sorry you’ll have some catching up to do, to even begin to understand this post.

I wanted to add this bit of personal explanation:  Why I have continued to work every day since I escaped from being sent to a state mental hospital, where they were trying commit me to a state mental hospital permanently, is because I swore an oath to defend The Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Words matter.

Keeping your word, is a sacred TRUST.

The other reason, I continue on, is, it is my DUTY under the Code of Conduct – I must make every effort to escape.  I never could have imagined being attacked like this, on American soil, by a retired general who was fed lies, but no matter what, I will continue to work to expose those events.

2016 Russian Collusion count

Reported 2016 Russian Collusion count: 2 for Team Clinton and 2 for Team Trump.

Team Clinton:

The Steele dossier, was Russian collusion, with the Clinton campaign and DNC hiring a retired British spy, Christopher Steele to dig up Russian dirt on Donald Trump.  That Russian dirt, unverified and from unknown Russian sources has been used by the Obama Justice Dept. to launch investigations into the Trump campaign and is also the major SPIN cover for the #Resist effort.

The second Clinton Russian collusion effort, is reported to also have been successful at digging up Russian dirt on Donald Trump.  The Guardian reports:

The second memo was written by Cody Shearer, a controversial political activist and former journalist who was close to the Clinton White House in the 1990s.

Unlike Steele, Shearer does not have a background in espionage, and his memo was initially viewed with scepticism, not least because he had shared it with select media organisations before the election.

However, the Guardian has been told the FBI investigation is still assessing details in the “Shearer memo” and is pursuing intriguing leads.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jan/30/trump-russia-collusion-fbi-cody-shearer-memo

The Shearer memo mirrors much of the Steele dossier.  Imagine that… So, the FBI is seriously using dirt from a Clinton sleaze operative, part of the old Clinton-scandals-witness-intimidation-squad, to bolster the Steele dossier…

Next up, the two Team Trump Russian collusion efforts did not bear fruit.

The Don. Jr. meeting with the Russian lawyer, that was spun as a discussion about Russian adoption, fizzled.  Andrew McCarthy wrote about that in his article, The Gang That Couldn’t Lie Straight.

The other Trump campaign effort was a Republican operative, Peter Smith, who was reported to have tried to hire a British security firm to locate Russian hackers, with the intention of buying Hillary’s emails.  Smith died last year in May, 10 days after talking to a WSJ reporter.  Smith is reported to have committed suicide:

“At the time, the newspaper reported Smith’s May 14 death came about 10 days after he granted the interview. Mystery shrouded how and where he had died, but the lead reporter on the stories said on a podcast he had no reason to believe the death was the result of foul play and that Smith likely had died of natural causes.

In the note recovered by police, Smith apologized to authorities and said that “NO FOUL PLAY WHATSOEVER” was involved in his death. He wrote that he was taking his own life because of a “RECENT BAD TURN IN HEALTH SINCE JANUARY, 2017” and timing related “TO LIFE INSURANCE OF $5 MILLION EXPIRING.””

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/politics/ct-peter-smith-death-met-0713-20170713-story.html

Further on in that same Chicago Tribune story is this fascinating bit of info:

“Smith’s death occurred at the Aspen Suites in Rochester, records show. They list the cause of death as “asphyxiation due to displacement of oxygen in confined space with helium.”

Rochester police Chief Roger Peterson on Wednesday called Smith’s manner of death “unusual,” but a funeral home worker said he’d seen it before.”

Color me just a tad suspicious…  10 days after talking to a WSJ reporter…  Who knows, his Russian collusion may have been successful, but unlike the Steele dossier, I am sure Lynch and Comey would not have been using recovered emails from her”extremely careless” homebrew server, as evidence in Hillary’s “no intent”,  ummm, “matter”…

Stranger than fiction.  Can’t wait to see the next chapter in this 2016 never ending Russian collusion “riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma” (psst, that’s part of a 1939 Winston Churchill quote about Russia).

Later, I am cooking supper.
