Household Uses for Cream of Tartar

I recently dug some pretty brass tea candle holders out of my cupboard. They got pushed to the back in there because I’m allergic to hot wax. But Mama Buzz introduced me to battery powered tea candles last year, when she and the kids made me a few pretty holders for Christmas with glue, old glass jars, and colored tissue. I’ve found them very handy during power outages. It’s not a lot of light, but enough to help me orient and navigate until the power comes back. So, anyway, I thought I’d order a case of the tea lights and use my pretty brass holders as well … except they’re SO tarnished.  Enter google and a simple, inexpensive brass cleaner!

CLEAN METAL and PORCELAIN:  Mix with an acidic liquid such as lemon juice or white vinegar to make a paste-like cleaning agent for metals such as brass, aluminum or copper. Mix with water for other cleaning applications such as removing light stains from porcelain.

CLEAN RUST: Mix into a paste with hydrogen peroxide to clean rust from some hand tools, notably hand files. The paste is applied and allowed to set for a few hours and then washed off with a baking soda/water solution. Another rinse with water, a thorough drying and a thin application of oil will protect the file from further rusting.

CRAFTING: Mix with plaster of Paris to slow the set time.  Use with flour, water, salt, and oil for homemade play dough.

Is He Gone Yet??

Exactly one month until we rid ourselves of the stomach virus that has sickened us for eight long, agonizing years. I tried to make a list of everything he’s done to make this country better for everybody in America, not just climate alarmists, Black Lives Matter thugs, and illegal parasites. Couldn’t think of any. It is clear, like the petulant juvenile he is, that he’ll not return the courtesy he was shown by the Bush administration, but will make things as difficult as is humanly possible. The best analogy I can come up with is it’s like a large mass of excrement you’re trying to evacuate, but it’s so big it’s extremely painful. That’s probably an inartful description, but accurate.

Obama Said to Use 1953 Law to Permanently Block New Drilling Leases in Arctic, Atlantic
Obama will invoke a provision in a 1953 law that gives him wide latitude to withdraw U.S. waters from future oil and gas leasing, said the people who spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision had not been announced
Coming in the waning days of his administration, Obama’s move — which could come as soon as Tuesday — responds to a clamor from environmental activists who have looked for a way to lock in protections before President-elect Donald Trump takes office
Although oil companies have struggled to tap resources at the top of the globe, industry leaders say they will be needed to meet the world’s energy needs. The American Petroleum Institute has called the idea of permanently withdrawing offshore waters “incredibly short-sighted.”

Report: Obama intends to transfer more Gitmo detainees before leaving office
The Bush administration brought about 780 men to Guantánamo after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, saying that it could hold Qaeda suspects there in indefinite wartime detention without trial — a move that the Supreme Court eventually approved — and that it could disregard the Geneva Conventions in how it treated them, which the court rejected.President George W. Bush started trying to close the prison in his second term and bequeathed 242 detainees to Mr. Obama. If the proposed transfers go through, the 41 or 42 prisoners Mr. Trump would inherit include 10 men who were charged or convicted in the military commissions and 27 who have not been charged but are deemed too dangerous to release.

Obama grants clemency to 231 inmates in one-day record
With Monday’s grants, Obama has more than doubled the number of people he has pardoned as president, according to the White House, a number that now stands at 148. He has now commuted the sentences of 1,176 people, including 395 serving life sentences.
“Today’s acts of clemency — and the mercy he has shown his 1,324 clemency recipients — exemplify his belief that America is a nation of second chances,” White House counsel Neil Eggleston wrote in a blog post.

Sources: Lame Duck Obama to Allow Anti-Israel UN Efforts
Sources inform Breitbart News that U.S. President Barack Obama may allow anti-Israel resolutions to pass at the UN that would legitimize and strengthen the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement against the Jewish state.

Obama Heads to Golf Course After Receiving Reports on Berlin Attack and Russian Ambassador Death

The President and his motorcade departed the Kailua neighborhood where the First Family rents a vacation home at 10:21 a.m. Spectators on the street threw shakas and recorded photos or video on cell phones as the motorcade made the 10-minute drive to Mid-Pacific Country Club, where the President will be golfing under cloudy skies.

UN appeals for $547 million in aid to PA
UN launches appeal for $547 million to help 1.6 million Palestinian Arabs. The PA continues to spend its budget on terrorist salaries.
The United Nations on Monday launched an appeal for $547 million (524 million euros) to help 1.6 million people in the Palestinian Authority (PA) Sin 2017, AFP reports.
The PA has repeatedly asked for foreign donations in recent years, claiming it is on the verge of collapse due to a worsening financial crisis.
At the same time, while blaming Israel for the PA’s financial woes, Abbas continues to spend six percent of the PA’s annual budget to pay $4.5 million a month to jailed terrorists and another $6.5 million to their families.

Michelle Obama ready for anonymity after ‘painful’ election
“You know, there’s nowhere I can go in the world and just sit at a table and have a cup of coffee and watch the world,” Obama said in what is expected to be her final sit-down interview.
WHICH GOES BETTER WITH YOUR COFFEE? THE LOBSTER OR THE WAGYU BEEF?
The first lady also said the recent election “was challenging for me as a citizen to watch and experience. It was painful.”
Still, she said she and the president are supporting President-elect Donald Trump’s transition because “it is important for the health of this nation that we support the commander-in-chief.”
She added that the same thing wasn’t done for her husband, but “this is what’s best for the country.”

UN Chief: Abandoning Paris Climate Deal Will ‘Condemn Future Generations to Untold Suffering’
BE THANKFUL PRESIDENT TRUMP DOESN’T KICK ALL YOUR POMPOUS ASSES OUT OF THE COUNTRY. GO SQUAT IN IRAN.
Ban declared that the planet was at “a critical juncture.”
“We are … the last generation that can avert the existential threat of climate change,” he said. “We are the last generation to do something to prevent – stop this climate change happening.”

Not Your Ordinary Christmas Videos

You all know that conventionality is not one of my long suits. Every year since 2011 I have posted some of my favorite Christmas music videos, like Nat King Cole, Celine Dion, and Karen Carpenter. I plan to do the same this year. However, here are some videos you may or may not have seen. Some you might watch and wish you hadn’t.

Electors only “act by authority of the state.”

The guest on this Tucker Carlson video says the Constitution gives electors the right to vote their conscience.  He’s 100% wrong.

Law Newz explains:

“In the seminal decision of Ray v. Blair, the Supreme Court made clear electors act at the privilege of the state that empowers them, and do NOT enjoy any special right to vote as they please.

“Article II, section 1 of the Constitution gives states the rights to select their electors as they please, including a right to require party and candidate loyalty.”

The Blood of St. Januarius

St. Januarius, Bishop of Benevento, was martyred for the faith around 305 CE, during the Emperor Diocletion’s persecution. It is said that when he was put in the arena, wild animals refused to harm him, so they cut off his head. The Feast of St. Januarius is celebrated on September 19th, believed to be the day he died, or, as we believe, was born into Heaven.

st-january-animals

A relic of St. Januarius’ blood is kept in Naples.  It is exposed in Naples Cathedral in May, September and December.  Ordinarily, the blood is clotted.  But on these three special days when it is exposed, it almost always liquefies.  Thousands of people assemble to see if the miracle will happen again.  Scientists have not been able to explain how it happens.

undated-january-blood-liquid

There have only been a few times in the recent past when the blood failed to liquefy.  Shortly thereafter, disaster fell on the area.

  • 1939: The Second World War broke out.
  • 1973: Naples was visited by a cholera epidemic.
  • 1980: A powerful earthquake killed almost 2,500 people.

Last weekend, at the annual December ceremony, the blood of St. Januarius failed to liquefy.

There is another aspect to this story, which is the unusual liquefactions that have occurred only twice in the presence of a visiting pope.
