Just the facts.
As the world continues to move in lockstep with the oligarchs of control toward their Global Gulag, we here on the wee homestead move from damage control after the spring manufactured weather terror toward our next steps in resistance.
Handy Hubby has been working hard clearing the uprooted and split trees from around the house, continuing on that momentum to clear a few more as well, optimizing our lovely views. Some cool weather and rain, at last, allows for a giant bonfire, and we contentedly watch the damage go up in smoke.
Since this setback made it impossible for him to finish fencing a second pasture this year, some hastily employed electric fencing saved the day, and the critters can now save me the task of pruning, mowing and weeding.
Maybe Mama Chop knew we, and she, weren’t up for a big litter this year. Now her remaining four piglets get pampered with her undivided attention and we will all have fewer mouths to feed.
The new guard gets to expand their territory. Tori gets to expand her dominance and spread the love.
We will continue circling the wagons, with a storm shelter moving to the top of the long list, because the writing is clearly on the wall, in neon, though the vast majority continue skipping their merry way to the guillotine.
The hardest losses to deal with are those that have no lesson attached. A lesson helps keep the focus on aspects of a tragic situation that might be overcome in future. It gives us a sense of control over what seems otherwise out of our control.
We’ve not had such fortune on the homestead this year, and to make matters worse, I know we have a lot of company around the world.
The tornado and hail and drought and continued weather whiplash were/are out of our control. Now, to pile on more setbacks and losses out of our control our young ram has to be put down just two days after being introduced to his harem, due to a fatal injury we’ve no idea how occurred.
Not only have we lost this perfectly healthy and handsome fellow, but now we’ll have no spring lambs either.
And the hits continue. We woke to find Mama Chop squashed seven of her just born piglets during the night. She’s had two previous litters without issue and we’ve no real inkling why this time would be any different. Could she have been confused by the sharp temperature drop? Could it be she finds it as irritating and uncomfortable as I do?
We have neighbors whose cows couldn’t get pregnant this year after two tries and then lost a perfectly healthy milking goat in her prime from a sudden tumor.
But, as sad as all this is, there are farmers and families, rural and urban, all over this country, all over this world, losing their livelihoods, their properties, their homes, even their lives to what equates to weather terrorism and mass land and power grabs. Blizzards, floods, fires and finger pointing in every other direction but where it belongs.
These are the casualties of the escalating undeclared war that’s being ignored or minimized by the masses hypnotized by the bread and circus and chorus of lies coming from the mainstream media.
Instead of standing up and speaking out against the fascist takeover by this corporatocracy posing as our government and media, folks are lining up to handover all their health records to them!
I can’t even fathom the level of insanity of the masses of folks who consider this to be a good idea.
Supposedly one of the stages of grief is acceptance. Apparently in this asylum we must accept what we cannot change. And what we cannot change is everything.
It’s the crazy ones, like me, who refuse to accept.
Sorry, but I have no good news for y’all this time. No silver lining, inspirational quote, spoonful of sugar, meaningful song.
Another miserable weather week in East Texas, minimized, normalized, joked about by the manipulating, gaslighting and flat-out lying mainstream news and weather turds.
The sun is scorching like it’s in a microwaved atmosphere, because it is in a microwaved atmosphere. The daytime temps are in the 90s endlessly while they still call this ‘fall’. We’ve had no significant rain for months, even when there was just a tropical storm two hours south of us dumping feet of rain on select areas. The nighttime temperatures are still over 70, humid and not at all normal, and I wake up smelling disgusting fumes in the overcast and stifling morning air.
Yet we still have nitwit ‘experts’ claiming the weather is fine. I’d like to find out what they’re smoking, because it’s WAY better than what I’ve got, obviously.
Please excuse my bad attitude, but these days it’s really tough to decide who annoys me more—the fat turds corroding our world in blankets of toxic chemicals, or the lazy turds who say it’s all natural and normal, or the greedy, selfish turds getting rich off all the lies.
In case you are as frustrated as I am and would like to hear a bit of truth each day, here are a few places you can still find it, for a limited time only I’m sure, if the master manipulators continue to have their way.
Relevant Quotes from Scientific/Academic Papers
Journal of Environment, Geography and Earth Science International July 13, 2018
“Conclusions: The U. S. military’s ongoing decision to weaponize the environment for national security purposes was accurately forecasted by MacDonald. But he failed to realize that national militaries could and would be co-opted by a secret international agreement the consequence of which, however unintentional, was to wage war on planet Earth, on all its biota, and on its natural, biogeochemical processes. Unless and until politicians, news media, scientists, and others in our society face the truth of what is happening before their very eyes and collectively demand a halt to these covert technological activities, we will march onward – to the first anthropogenic-caused mass extinction.”
Abstract: Fundamental Climate Science Error: Concomitant Harm to Humanity and the Environment
“The climate science community (CSC) has misrepresented climate change, falsely claiming carbon dioxide causes global warming, and developing computer models of Earth’s radiation balance without taking into consideration the tropospheric particulate geoengineering that has been taking place for several decades, thus rendering invalid those models and their interpretations. The CSC misunderstands the science underlying particulate pollution in the troposphere, typically maintaining that aerosolized particulates cool the Earth. As described here, pollution particles, including those jet-sprayed into the region where clouds form, reflect some radiation, but also absorb radiation and become heated. The heat is transferred to the surrounding atmosphere, thus increasing its temperature. The increased atmospheric temperature causes loss of heat-transfer efficiency by convection from Earth’s surface, and concomitant reduction of Earth’s heat loss. Climate science has been corrupted and coerced by military, commercial, and globalist political agendas.”

“I have been a member of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) for 45 years. During that time I have published fundamental scientific advances in world-class science journals . In 2011 the AGU established its Task Force on Scientific Ethics and Integrity and invited input from its members. On February 2, 2012, I responded  with a fundamental statement on scientific ethics and integrity: “Scientists are persons of integrity: They stand for what is right. They tell the truth and ensure that the full truth be known. They do not lie.” In that response I gave specific examples of egregious ethical transgressions by such AGU “luminaries” as Medal of Science awardee Don Anderson. Two weeks later the chairman of that task force, Peter Gleick, resigned in disgrace over his own ethical transgression, nationally reported.
Numerous AGU members along with members of the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the European Geosciences Union (EGU) have been involved in failing to tell the full truth about climate change. These scientists promote the claim that greenhouse gases, most especially anthropogenic carbon dioxide, are responsible for global warming. They remain silent about the consequences of the daily, near-global aerosol geoengineering that has been taking place since at least the 1990s with growing scope and intensity . Failure to discuss this massive global anthropogenic phenomenon not only negates the validity of these scientists’ assertions about climate change, but, I allege, makes those individuals, and their associated institutions, party to the biggest science scam ever perpetrated. And, as well, party to an activity many may consider to be a crime against humanity and the environment .
For 70 years the military interest in controlling the weather has been thoroughly documented . Military experiments advanced from causing rain and snow to inhibiting rainfall by emplacing pollution particles into the atmosphere where clouds form. Eventually, the atmosphere becomes too moisture-laden and torrential rains and storms result. The net effect of the now near-daily, near-global ongoing covert geoengineering activity of emplacing pollution particles into the atmosphere is to contribute to global warming. While some sunlight is reflected back into space by aerosols, the deliberately spread pollution particles also heat the atmosphere and impede heat loss from Earth . The albedo of snow and ice is lowered by certain particulates when they fall to Earth. There is, furthermore, evidence of a covert operation to deliberately melt ice by dispersing pseudo-cryoconite material .
Climate science that does not take into account the ongoing aerosol geoengineering activities can rightly be deemed immoral — by omission, lies are deliberately perpetuated. Such a dishonest effort to understand the climate is like trying to understand and predict ocean tides without considering the existence and gravitational influence of the Moon.”
Weather-Worlds of the Anthropocene and the End of Climate
“But set against this notion of the weather as immune from human agency is a long history of human actions altering the weather, of people in effect ‘cultivating’ the skies. Human capabilities to shape and re- make their environments have gradually extended from the forests, land and seas so that they now also encompass the atmosphere.
This ‘weather cultivation’ in the past commonly occurred on micro-scales, modifying local weather through tree-planting or irrigation. It has occurred both inadvertently and advertently. Weather cultivation has been undertaken often modestly and pragmatically but also, on occasions, with hubristic economic or military intent12. And increasingly it has emerged from human activities operating across larger- scales. These weather modification practices have included, inter alia, animal domesticating, forest clearing, swamp draining, dam building, city building, roof- whitening, fire burning, desert irrigating, cannon-firing, cloud seeding, coal burning, and so on. The frequency and scale of these human practices have grown alongside the rise of industrial capitalism and complex institutional structures. It has therefore become less and less possible to claim unthinkingly that all adverse weather is ‘an act of God’ (13). Rather than seeing the atmosphere as the domain of the gods, the weather must increasingly be understood as an extension of the human. People and their cultural artefacts and practices become weathered, yes; people continually find new ways of living with their weather and its dangers and bounties. But, conversely, the weather becomes cultivated; it increasingly bears the imprints of human cultural activity often reflecting powerful political, economic and technological interests.”
To be continued . . .
Question: Hail repression and Cloud Seeding are two of the oldest methods of weather modification boasted about widely since the 1960s. Yet, we have more and larger hail and more and longer droughts in East Texas. Why?
I am still and always in awe of the resilience of nature. While we are still on the mend from spring weather chaos, the birds and the spiders are ambivalent, the flowers return, the roof gets fixed, the windshields repaired, the debris cleared, eventually.
But I never want to take this marvelous regeneration of nature for granted, because I actually don’t know for sure how far we can rule nature with an iron fist before we’ve gone beyond the point of no return. I don’t think anyone knows this, and I highly mistrust anyone who says they do.
That’s why it’s so important we as the public are informed on what’s really going on with the weather.
In our case, planning and patience, and saving for the rainy days, have been key when it comes to us mere humans in recovering from weather catastrophe. Three times now we’ve been able to practice, so we’re getting pretty good at it.
Three times, three different locations, good situational training, right? And we didn’t have to deal with injury or serious trauma, just run of the mill damages compared to the tragedies that millions around the world are being subjected to with ‘science’s’ drive to ‘own the weather’.
I am humbled by the resilience of the enemies of these global tyrants, innocent victims not of Mother Nature, but of psychotic, destructive fellow humans who couldn’t care less that another town, city or village has been flooded, droughted, sprayed, poisoned, electrocuted, or whatever other nightmare they can inflict on the world’s populations.
Handy Hubby is by far the number one reason why the wee homestead is making any progress at all in recovering after the spring ‘tornado’ or that I continue to trudge along in my own healing. He is still clearing the topped and uprooted trees from just around our house, in miserable heat. It will be another year, at least, before all the paths can be cleared and the fencing project continued.
I get to ponder and research from the comfort of the couch in the cool air condition those bigger questions, lucky lady that I am: How did this happen, again? What is really going on with the weather? Is this crucial question of our crazy climate really just an argument between Believers and Deniers?
The well-framed climate debate continues on mainstream and ‘alternative’ channels, keeping folks well-honed in on the myth that the weather chaos is either: A. Man-made climate change or B. Mother Nature.
Both sides insist the science data is firmly on their side. Those are the two prescribed swim lanes, to veer from them is to leave yourself vulnerable to every shark in the ocean.
Where’s your data?! NOAA says tornados are drastically reduced in numbers! NOAA says there are no big hurricanes for a decade! NOAA says the climate won’t burn up in 12 years! Don’t believe the United Nations shills—they try to manipulate you with children! Believe US!
Seriously? Is this a game of ping-pong?
70+ years of weather modification never hits the headlines and rarely hits the alternative circuit either?
Yet just a few decades ago it was commonly mentioned in the news, by scientists and politicians. I wonder why now, suddenly, so few are interested in the science of weather modification? Why do the fields of weather science and climate science seem to rarely overlap, though they are clearly exceptionally inter-related?
For this reason too, it’s clear that a homestead without livestock is at a serious disadvantage for several reasons, not just ready fertilizer, but also “food” insurance, because a bad year of crops can turn into two, or more, and animals are less work, less reliant on the weather, and can get by on grass or in the case of pigs, scraps and forage, when required.
Weather Modification Associations around the country are full of ex-military, isn’t that interesting, you’d think this would be a talking point for the media.
Crickets . . . Big surprise.
“What do you do when things go from bad to worse?”
It’s not at all inspiring in the vein of Ram Dass quotes and vision boards and self-help mantras. You might even argue it’s the opposite, more often than not. Not that it’s nihilistic ‘slash and burn’ either, but more like, ‘tastefully deconstruct and reconsider.’
These guys have heard it all, I’m sure. Nut jobs, shills, conspiracy theorists would be on the mild side.
I see something quite different, typical. They’ve recently filmed a documentary called “Shoot the Moon” — about the lunar wave — quite à propos, no?
I see determination, resilience, fortitude, creativity—all qualities I consider to be deliciously rare. Others see ‘crazy’ where I see ‘courageous.’
Most of all, I see care. Authentic care.
“What a good question,” I replied at the time.
I really had not a clue at that moment and was still in a state of mental and emotional chaos, which had my conscious thoughts and unconscious feelings ALL over the place.
Of course, when I’m all over the place I drag Hubby all over the place with me, which surely isn’t the reason why he’s been working so much overtime, right?? 🙂
“Let’s sell it all and move to Mexico!” was at the top of my list at the time of that astute question. Folks don’t ask a lot of good questions, even the well-meaning ones. Mostly I hear useless platitudes, like these Ram Dass quotes, and even actual arguments about how they think I should be feeling.
To be absolutely frank in a ‘too much information’ sort of way I’m sure to regret at some point, I think what happened to my psyche right after the latest weather disaster was what the shrinks would call ‘complex PTSD’.
Yes, I’m self-diagnosing from the Internet. But, the symptoms fit, and the worst of it came out in flooding of somatic memories that were totally overpowering and illogical and unwelcome, along with intense anxiety, nightmares and terrors, paranoia, depression, loss of sense of stability and control, and so on.
These weren’t overpowering memories just from the previous two disasters, Hurricanes Katrina and Ike, they went much further back. They wen’t so far back sometimes that I couldn’t really tell if they were ‘all mine’ alone, but that doesn’t matter one bit, because they were terrifying and I was feeling them as if they were currently happening to me, alone.
I mostly isolate in such times, because I feel if nothing else, I don’t want to take others down with me. But also because I know from experience how badly the average person handles disaster, or grief, or anything remotely unpleasant or unsavory, so I feel I have little other choice.
I want to say now what I think really helped, now that I feel on the upswing once again. It’s not because I think what helps me will help others necessarily, but you never know how adding to the reservoir of our individual coping and healing techniques could work for someone, somewhere, and I’ve got a great big hunch more folks are going to need more such resources for the coming decades.
What’s working for me, what have been my buoys in the darkness?
Not those typically espoused by those who think they know, like ‘get out and socialize’ or ‘join a club’ or ‘try these meds’ or even meditate or try a new hobby.
Jason’s simple question—spontaneous, honest, rhetorical—gave me a point of focus I expect he never intended, but was able to offer to a virtual stranger, out of . . . I don’t really know . . . empathy, curiosity, tact?
A few other things helped too. I consulted an astrologer for the first time in my life. https://readingsbyyerevan.com/
I decided (again) my first responsibility is to my own well-being, which should be obvious, but I often forget it.
This blog helped, the folks who support me in this blog helped. I got to send my chaotic feelings into the ether, to be read or ignored as the reader saw fit, no obligation, but no expectations from me either. That’s truly cathartic for me.
I’m taking herbal hormones and eating an even healthier diet than I typically do, just loading up more on the veggies and herbs and lightening up on the chips and fries. That part has been pretty painless.
Isolating for me dramatically reduces stress, yet this is what all the experts say to never do. I think that’s because they want the vulnerable to join cults and be in an even greater position of weakness to group-think and consensus trance and taking bad popular advice, like anti-depressants, for starters.
I’m not saying I’ve figured it all out or it’s all downhill from here, but I’ve added a few more tools to the box.
So, to answer your question, Jason, “What do you do when things go from bad to worse?”
I re-balance and re-tune, and if that goes well, I re-commit.
I might still be down, but I’m not yet out. And there’s no power, be it technocratic, dogmatic, omnipotent or otherwise, who’s going to force me from our land in this lifetime. If it comes to push and shove, I go down with the ship. Period.
