Gerard Van der Leun

His blog, The American Digest has been a daily ritual for decades.

This morning my heart was torn apart when I read this…

This is the news no one wants to hear. It is my sad task to tell you that Gerard has cancer that has metastasized, and that treatment offers very little or nothing at this point. He has entered hospice care, his younger brother is with him, and other loved ones have gathered or are gathering to visit, as well as church members and pastor.

Perhaps you have read his work, or maybe you never heard of him.

While his blog is still up I suggest that you visit and browse through the vast treasure of his words.

Of more immediate import, here is the link to the comments page that followed the sad news shown above.  The list of farewells, well wishers and tributes is steadily growing.  It is a page well worth reading.  If nothing else it shows that people with a strong belief in the love and the power of a merciful God are still around.

On Gerard

It has been especially hard for me since very recently I lost my best friend to cancer in very much the same way.

Criminals like the new ‘Discovery’ law. Not so much everyone else.

New York’s discovery laws are DESIGNED to let criminals go free

Of all the criminal-justice “reforms” the Legislature passed in 2019 — on bail, discovery and parole and Raise the Age — discovery “reform” was the most pernicious.

It imposed an impossible burden on prosecutors to turn over almost every imaginable piece of evidence to the defense in just 20-35 days, including:

  • All police paperwork
  • All body-worn cameras, even for officers not involved directly in the arrest
  • All police-disciplinary records for every officer on scene
  • Witness names and contact information, meaning if prosecutors worry a witness is put at risk or can be intimidated, they must petition a judge to redact that information.
  • Criminal records of “potential witnesses”
  • Expert-witness résumés and writings
  • Disciplinary records of any possible police witnesses and any other material “related to the case.”

Prosecutors who have not completed all their discovery obligations are deemed not ready for trial. What could possibly go wrong?

The result? In 2021 over 80% of misdemeanor cases resulted in dismissals.  It’s why Shoplifting is a growth industry.

Of more serious crimes, in 2020 35% of felony cases were dismissed.   Over a third of the cases where citizens are assaulted, robbed or murdered the criminal goes free without a trial.  New York City used to be justly called the ‘Safest Big City in America’.   No more.

George Soros is laughing at this.

Wait till he brings the same thing to your state or city.

Translation: The Covid vaccine causes strokes.

CDC & FDA Identify Preliminary COVID-19 Vaccine Safety Signal for Persons Aged 65 Years and Older

Following the availability and use of the updated (bivalent) COVID-19 vaccines, CDC’s Vaccine Safety Datalink (VSD), a near real-time surveillance system, met the statistical criteria to prompt additional investigation into whether there was a safety concern for ischemic stroke in people ages 65 and older who received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent. Rapid-response investigation of the signal in the VSD raised a question of whether people 65 and older who have received the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine, Bivalent were more likely to have an ischemic stroke in the 21 days following vaccination compared with days 22-42 following vaccination.

When can we expect to heard the truth about the “Sudden” deaths and heart attacks?

Robert E. Lee Day

Robert E. Lee Day


Robert E. Lee Day is a state holiday in parts of the Southern US, commemorating the Confederate general Robert E. Lee.
January 19th (His birthday) was marked by the governor of Tennessee as Robert E. Lee Day in 2013. Texas made “Lee Day” a holiday in 1931. In 1973, “Lee Day” was renamed Confederate Heroes Day.

Saturday Night Joke

Guy goes into a bar in Bunkie, Louisiana where there’s a robot bartender.

The robot says, “What will you have?”

The guy says, “Whiskey.”

The robot brings back his drink and says to the man, “What’s your IQ?”

The guy says,” 168.”

The robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and medical technology.

The guy leaves, but he is curious…So he goes back into the bar.

The robot bartender says, “What will you have?”

The guy says, “Whiskey.”

Again, the robot brings the man his drink and says, “What’s your IQ?”

The guy says, “100.”

The robot then starts to talk about Nascar, Budweiser, the Saints and LSU Tigers

The guy leaves, but finds it very interesting, so he thinks he will try it one more time.

He goes back into the bar.

The robot says, “What will you have?”

The guy says, “Whiskey,” and the robot brings him his whiskey.

The robot then says, “What’s your IQ?”

The guy says, “Uh, about 50.”

The robot leans in real close and says, “So, you people still happy with Biden?”

Lets try another post on the Vaccines.

Last one I tried to post disappeared quickly from the source. 

Why Is The Vaccine Killing Our Young Men And Women?

I have long been interested in studying how pharmaceutical drugs injure people. Before COVID-19, while quite common, this issue was relatively unknown, because the media–which receives significant sponsorship from the pharmaceutical industry–was rarely willing to cover this subject. Because of my interest, I’ve focused on trying to understand how the COVID-19 vaccines injure people, such as causing sudden adult death syndrome.

Presently, I believe the most probable culprit for the vaccine injuries is the spike proteins they produce. Almost all of the vaccine side effects I’ve observed have a mechanism that can be linked to a consequence of the spike protein, and the spike protein is the only common factor present in the following (all of which have overlapping symptoms):

This section caught my attention as it is the same questions I’ve been wondering about.

•Although there have been a large number of sudden unexplained deaths following COVID-19 vaccination, there has been significant pressure exerted globally against conducting the autopsies that otherwise would have been required. Nonetheless, a few pathology teams have independently conducted these autopsies and there are now many studies that have detected profound and highly abnormal inflammation directed at the tissues that likely accounted for these deaths. Additionally, they also developed a way to test for the spike protein in those tissues and found that the spike protein was present, but not the COVID-19 virus, indicating that only the vaccine could have killed these individuals.

The most recent study, for example, examined 35 individuals who died within 20 days of vaccination, 25 of whom were determined to have not had a pre-existing condition that could have caused their sudden death. Of these 25 fatalities, it was determined that 5 died of myocarditis (with 3 of those deaths almost certainly due to vaccination, and 2 others having a likely but not definitive link), while the other 20 had other fatal conditions commonly associated with spike protein vaccination (e.g., heart failure).

Long read, but if you are interested do it quick before it disappears.
