I’m learning that the most important step to take when building a new website is selecting the best theme for that site. For me this takes days as I mull over feathers, look at demos, and even pay for some to try out and then find they don’t do what I want. Then after I make that decision and it is a long drawn out decision, I then have to learn how the theme behaves and where to put the stuff that I want to be displayed using the built-in theme behavior.
Finally I found a theme that is easily “themeable” meaning I can make my own themes from it and it is extremely customizable. It is themify! So now I can learn one them and all its behavior and be able to build a gazillion sites in the flash of a light!! Wooo Hoo!! More on this soon.
I want to document one thing. (I posted this on their forum and got a response within 8 hours!! Yeah!)
I’m using the page Home-2 as my Front-page that came with the demo. It already has a nice slider with 3 images it sequences through. I would just like to change out those demo images. The documentation for the theme options Header Wrap states: “To insert an image slider:
Select Header Type = “Slider” and click “Insert Gallery”
My Header Wrap does not have a Header Type option. Can you point me in the right direction please?
I finally found where to update the slider. While displaying the page, hover over Edit Page and Page Options will appear. Clicking on that I was then able to find the “insert Gallery” link.
However it seems once a gallery has been defined for the slider as was my case since it was the demo, the “insert Gallery” link fails. Took awhile for me to determine that the link was actually failing. I turned on pop-ups for the domain, and still no luck getting the link to work.
So I started a new blank page and added in a new slider. Then I created the gallery in the new slider with the images I wanted. And then copied and pasted the gallery ids = line from the new page into the existing Home-2 page where I want it. So it is a workaround, but it worked.
You know when you see an ad and it says get this great prize and all you have to do is provide your email address? Have you seen any of those lately? And many times the prize is some form of cash or gift card!!
So these are not scams! And many actually provide ways to get real cash! Or at least a free gift card! And all you have to do is provide an email address! But if that’s all you have to do and you could get even as much as $500 why not provide 2 email addresses? Seriously in the previous post you learned how to subscribe in a kind of incognito fashion, but you can use that same idea to maximize your cash flow from these rewards offers.
So simply create 2 or 3 new email addresses. Then sign up for the offer, not once, not twice, but 3 times and triple your rewards!
Ok! That’s the tip for today from your wise Penny Finesse!!
Have you ever seen an ad that offers a free gift and you don’t have to do anything, except provide a valid email address? Sometimes your free gift is cash, sometimes its a book download, but in most cases you get something free in return for providing a valid email address.
Many people just blow off these ads thinking they are scams. And I’ll admit that some of those offers just flood your inbox with a bunch of advertisements. But some do not. And don’t forget you do still get your freebie, so it really is not a scam.
But you don’t know which of those ads will open the flood gates and blast you with unwanted email and which will not, until you’ve clicked on the link, and provided your email address, and given it a try! And only then will you know!
So to protect yourself you may want to start a junk email address, you know something free and easy like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Just something to let you know it may be junk and yet it may not.
Then you sign up for an offer using that email address. And then you check that email address at least once every few days to ensure you are catching all the good stuff from the offers you’re getting. And you can easily delete everything on a daily basis because none of your emails from your friends or people who matter are going into this junk inbox.
And your regular email address, you know the one where all your friends send their love, it remains pure and clean!
Ok! That’s the tip for today from your wise Penny Finesse!!Stay tuned for more penny wise tips soon!!
Coming soon – what makes ClearPhone stand out above the others making similar claims?
Already know about the great features including encryption, decentralization, and untrackability of this great solution? Get your ClearPhone here!
Again for comparison, Freedom Phone also uses an android derived operating system, GrapheneOS. But again, ClearOS incorporates decentralization, which GrapheneOS does not.
On top of the privacy and security, I have found the phone itself to be a very refreshing change from my previous LG. And I can get clear and uninterrupted calls in my living room again. Seems that when the Sprint/TMobile merger occurred, the cell signal inside my house seem to dwindle to a trickle. I seldom had 2 whole bars any more. Since my cell phone is my primary phone, this was unacceptable. Now with my new ClearPhone with its highly secure ClearOS transmitting on the ClearCellular network, I can again have clear and undropped calls right in my own living room!! Wooo Hooo!!
How secure is your cell phone? Do you think big tech is the only force watching you? Did you know that every time your phone connects to a satellite or cell tower that connection includes identifying information which allows you to easily be tracked? I mean physically tracked. I’m not talking about tracking your internet site visits which is an infringement on your privacy that you can also read about here. I’m talking about physically tracking over the ground where your phone is located on the earth. Well all this may come as a surprise to you, but this is happening today with all phones, all operating systems, and all cell services. Keep reading to learn the pertinent details of the tracking and the lack of privacy and what one company is doing about it.
Already know about the tracking and all the other life enhancing features of this great solution? Get your ClearPhone here!
You see whenever two devices need to communicate with each other the devices are programmed to use messages that have specific defined packets of information in order to communicate effectively. This defined information is called TCP protocol and it specifies that for each packet of data that gets transmitted between the devises, an ID address of each device needs to be included. This is so that the device sending the data packet can also get the return packet from the recipient device. Today that ID can be either the IP address of your phone or the mac address of your phone or both. The IP address is the end node TCP/IP id that connects your phone to either a WIFI router, a cell tower or to the satellite itself in the case of connecting using your cell service. This TCP/IP id never changes when connecting using your cell service. And when using WIFI it could change each time you connect to a new WIFI router. The signal being transmitted with these id’s and with your packet of data are transmitted in the clear, without any encryption. Today anyone with the right tools can easily track those IP addresses and know everywhere you’ve gone. Here is a vide explaining this and showing how it is done. [Find the video of this and insert here.]
Now our wonderful government has rules against this, but these rules only state that the government cannot track US Citizens and then store that information obtained from the tracking effort. Funny that the government doesn’t say anything about others tracking and storing that data, and in fact big tech, like Google and Apple are doing just that. And then as you see in the references above big tech then sells that information to our wonderful government and others.
All phones have this issue of sending an id that is associated with your phone without any encryption. It doesn’t matter which phone you are using, it doesn’t matter which service you are using, and it doesn’t matter which app you are using. The IP address identifying your phone is broadcast in the clear and when triangulation is done on that IP address the location of your phone is known. Even if you are not making a call or using an app, while the phone is on it is transmitting this IP address to remain connected to the cell service.
So what can we do about this? Well there is one phone company that is taking a protective approach – ClearPhone. Provided your usage remains within the Clear family of apps and products, you won’t have this tracking issue. ClearPhone has taken the same approach that many hackers and spammers have taken and that is to cycle the id often.
First the TCP id that is used by ClearPhone is not created from the same information normally used in TCP ids. Instead ClearPhone’s operating system, ClearOS, creates its own TCP id and recreates it often. So while your phone is connected to one cell tower it may have one id, and then when it connects to the next tower it may have a different id. The details of this are proprietary, but the ClearUnited technical team has reassured me that this cycling occurs and that this is the same tactic that spammers and hackers/scrapers use to remain unknown as their bots traverse about the web pages on the internet. And this is how the ClearPhone becomes untrackable to undesirable tracking software and monitors. The ClearCellular service network knows where your phone is in order to produce contiguous messages, but no one else knows where it is.
So along with the tracking of your device itself, another big concern is that your conversations can be monitored and are being monitored. Not only are your conversations monitored, but so are your texts to your friends and family. The data collected from this monitoring is what is used then by big tech to create ads based on your interests. You see you actually agreed to allow big tech to collect this data in the service agreements. They then sell the data for the use in marketing ads and the ads you get then match those things you’ve been talking about.
Well what if you talked to your friend and you both worked out a scheme that when ever a word had an e in it, you used a 3 instead and every time an o was used you used a 0 (zero) instead. So your conversation might look like this – H3ll0 Su3!! Gr3at t0 s33 you at the p00l t0day! Now big tech would not know that you talked to Sue or that you saw her today at the pool. You’ve successfully spoofed them! But you and your friend have to remember your agreed upon scheme and have to remember to continue to use it.
This kind of scheme is a very basic level of encryption. Encryption today uses very sophisticated schemes that are highly mathematical making them near impossible to break. Both the sender of the message and the receiver must know the scheme and the keys in order to send and receive encrypted message and be able to decrypt them upon receipt.
What’s really cool is that today your voice can also be encrypted, something not possible with an analog phone without having a special service doing the encryption in the transmission.
So with encryption, you spoof those who are collecting your text and voice conversations so that the actual words of those conversations are garbled and meaningless. This doesn’t mean you won’t get any ads, it only means that you won’t get ads customized to what you talk about. But more importantly it means your conversations are private and anyone who is listening won’t have a clue what is being said or what is the context of any texts.
Again only one phone today provides this encryption built right into the phone and into the operating system and yes that is ClearPhone. (See my comparison of competitors here.) ClearPhone comes with an app called ClearSignal which provides text and phone calling service. Now remember as in our example above you and your friend had to know and agree to the encryption scheme. The same holds true with any encryption feature, both the sender and the receiver must both be able to know and utilize the encryption scheme otherwise it will be garbled. So whenever you make a call through ClearSignal, if the person you are calling also has ClearSignal then the call can be encrypted. The same with texts, when ever you send a text using ClearSignal, if the recipient also has ClearSignal, then the text can also be encrypted. Advantage is that the content of your data is not known.
Now there is an app called Signal that can be used on any cell phone which also provides encryption. A really nice feature of ClearSignal is that it can be used with Signal. So until all your friends have gotten new shiny untrackable and encrypted ClearPhones, they can use Signal on their current phone and you will be able to have secured texts as well as secured audible phone conversations. How cool is that!!??
Decentralization Of Data
Want to take that encryption scheme to a whole new level? Wouldn’t it be nice to make your data even more secure? How about 1000 times more secure? ClearPhone just did exactly that by adding in blockchain technology allowing the data to be decentralized as well as encrypted! Here’s what that means.
Right now all your data is in a central location or many central locations. You may have data and files and songs all stored on your local computer or on your phone. All the data is together in that one location. Then you may have other data stored in the cloud on Google Drive, DropBox, iCloud, etc. All the data, each file, each song, each piece of data is stored all together in one central location. Any time one of these services is hacked, your whole piece of data is available to the hacker. So let’s take something we know we don’t want hacker to get – your website passwords. Let’s say you have all your passwords stored in your own text file and for ease of access you save that file to your iCloud account. Now if iCloud gets hacked, all your password information is available to the hacker because the whole file is there in one place.
When data is decentralized, the whole of the data is broken into bits and pieces and each bit is stored in a separate location. Then if the servers in one location are hacked, the hacker only gets one bit of your data, it can’t access all of it because the remaining parts are stored on other servers in other locations. Blockchain is used in conjunction with decentralization to encrypt each of the data pieces using a long key and store the pieces in separate locations with that encryption. So even if one piece of the data is acquired by a hacker, it is worthless unless the blockchain master key is known and the other locations of the remaining bits of the data are known so that the pieces can all be reconstructed back together and decrypted to form the whole of the data.
And this is what ClearPhone with the ClearOS does with your data. It first uses your 12 word master key to encrypt the data. Once the data is encrypted it is then chunked up into pieces and stored across the ClearCenter network of servers. So without this master key, your data will not be able to be retrieved or reconstructed. So your data is 1000 times more secure than basic encrypted data. And this is the same technology used in blockchains for cryptocurrencies.
Insert DIDs video.
To provide all this powerful security, the ClearPhone uses a new open source operating system appropriately called ClearOS. ClearOS is a derivative of Android with block chain technology and encryption built right in at the OS level! Without incorporating these technologies at the OS level, the apps would each have to incorporate it into their programming which would be wasteful in development and in app size and functions.
More Reasons to Buy NOW!
On top of the privacy and security, I have found the phone itself to be a very refreshing change from my previous LG. And I can get clear and uninterrupted calls in my living room again. Seems that when the Sprint and TMobile merged, the cell signal inside my house seem to dwindle to a trickle. I seldom had 2 whole bars any more and since my cell phone is my primary phone, this was unacceptable. Now with my new ClearPhone with its highly secure ClearOS transmitting on the ClearCellular network, I can again have clear and undropped calls right in my own living room!! Wooo Hooo!!
So yes, I’m recommending the ClearPhone! Using my link here, you can research and purchase your new ClearPhone and get your new service as well. The costs are comparable to that of the others. I paid less for my new Clear220 (the low end model) than I did for my LG phone 2 years ago when it was on sale, and I have to admit I’ve been happier with my new ClearPhone than the LG. Phones range in price from $600 – $1100. The 220 and the 440 only differ in the cameras provided on the phone and the size of the screen. The processors are different but the same speed and capacity, same amount of memory, and same amount of storage. So I don’t care about the pictures and I wanted a smaller phone anyway. So I chose the lower priced phone. As for the cell service, the unlimited plan for 1 phone is $80 which is very close to what I was paying for Sprint/TMobile which didn’t even work in my home.
If you need a payment plan for the purchase of the phone, ClearPhone has partnered with Bread to give you 12 payments interest free or 24 – 36 payments with some interest rate I don’t remember. But you can find that out. The nice thing about purchasing your phone is at the end of the loan period, you own the phone.
ClearPhone also offers subscription plans for 2 years where the phone and the service are combined together. And at the end of the 2 years, you get a new phone. This is actually the best deal if you like having a shiny new phone every couple of years. The unlimited service is $80, so the phone subscription charge is the remainder and depends on the phone you want.
ClearUnited has also developed many of their own apps to incorporate the decentralizing of the data. They have many more that need to be transformed as well. But for now I use their email (ClearMail), not Google, I use their messenger (ClearSignal), not Google’s, and I use their contacts and web browser (ClearWeb), not Google’s. I don’t use Fakebook app, I access Facebook through the secure ClearWeb browser. ClearPhone doesn’t yet have travel navigation secured, so I use Google for that, but I’m sure it is on the way. So you will never have an app loaded on this phone without your permission and this phone empowers you to decide what parts of your data the apps store or share with others. No more tracking of the device and no more tracking apps! How relieving will that feel!?
Also some of their encrypted and decentralized apps include medical information and sharing apps as well as services building a network of non-traditional practitioners who are willing to work within the decentralized world. So you will see ClearMed with telehealth capabilities and ClearHealth with integrations to your personal monitoring devices. So this allows you to take advantage of the body sensor technology that exists today but to keep it securely on your device and share only that which you want to share to your medical professionals.
Now if you do decide to purchase, I only request you use my link so that I can get the credit. Also after you purchase if you think this is an awesome phone and an awesome company and would like to join the ranks of affiliate marketers such as I am, you may simply join as an affiliate and then you too can get paid to simply tell all your friends about your really cool super secure new phone!! You see Clear has decided not to use traditional marketing of their products. I mean this company is really cool and they have very conservative philosophies as you probably do as well. The only marketing they are using is affiliate marketing and it is working like a charm!! Their development is driven by purpose, that being providing technology to consumers that is protective, not invasive, technology that gives the control of the of the data and the apps back to you, the valued customer. Watch to this really inspiring video to see for yourself.
You know how Q, President Trump and so many off the grid news sites talk about our current government being a Corporation? And you know how they talk about how we need to separate from those Corporations? Well, I’m hoping this post helps to get you started in that direction. I don’t claim to have all of the necessary info here, nor is that my desire, however this is a great place to start. And it helps me use it as reference for all my friends so that I don’t have to keep typing everything over and over again.
Now I don’t have a lot of references yet backing up this whole idea and movement. I’m sort of taking this path with a huge leap of faith! It is however the only path that makes any logical sense to me. So the story goes like this:
Back when President Lincoln took office he was supposedly the first President to ever enact executive orders. You should find that interesting. How is it that he was the first president to do that? Think about this a minute. Why would they be called Executive orders? Perhaps because they are being created and ordered by an Executive, like a CEO? Well that is the supposed case. That Lincoln was the president that sold us all out and created the US Corporation. As a CEO he can now write executive orders and one of the first ones he wrote was that lawyers and attorneys can become President of the USA, INC. You see he was a lawyer and by right he should not have been President. Our original Constitution specifically stated that (would love to have a reference here for this, but I don’t just yet). And apparently Lincoln was very Marxist and his winning campaign after 4 prior losses, was funded by the rich in NY, probably even Rockefellers. So there you have it – the beginning of our socialism, the beginning of the breaking down of our Republic of States, the beginning of the war against evil started with Lincoln.
Now the left has been rewriting history for a very long time, and it started back then. So you won’t find much in the history books about this anymore. But other historical researchers have found court documents where a judge makes statements referring to 2 parallel governments existing back in that time. You see the people weren’t happy about this as they knew Lincoln was Marxist, and they protested and got themselves into trouble ending up in court, just like is happening today. So we can get more of this history from the court system which did not get rewritten than from the history books. We also get it from other banned books etc, and at some time I plan to have a list of those types of references as well.
But even before Lincoln is our founding fathers and the founding itself. It didn’t happen you know over night like so many people think. There were years of conflicts prior to the actual Declaration of Independence and the eventual Constitution with the Bill of Rights. The thing that I find interesting and learned from a Western Civ class taught by Hillsdale College is that back then the freedom the pilgrims sought was freedom from the Catholic church. The settlers were Protestant and didn’t want to have anything to do with the evil catholic church, as they saw it as tyrannical and slavery. So the whole experiment of a free country was not just free from anarchy but also freedom from the catholic church. You see today where this is prevalent again. I don’t know about you but in my Christian upbringing, i never learned that Catholicism was evil. I learned to treat everyone the same no matter what their religion or their beliefs. Today I clearly see the evil of that religion, and see how it was that fear which drove the Colonies to revolt and create the free states.
So you don’t think the shanigans are going on here in Maryland? Well think again. From the election fraud to rewriting history, it’s happening right here. If you look on the Maryland State website today for how we became known as the Free State it will indicate the prohibition movement and that this state allowed booze to be sold making it the Free State. Interestingly if you look at the date on the state’s website this change to the story behind the nickname is Jan 2021. And if you search further and find the archives, you will find that in the archives is a different account of how this state acquired the nickname, and this time it will mention abolition and that this was the first state the slaves encountered as they ran north to their freedom.
Ok that is a little bit more respectful and believable. But if you look at the western civ accounts we were the Free State because it was the only colony which allowed freedom of religion! In the other colonies if you did not want to worship the way the colony was requiring then you needed to leave and find another colony. So you see how history has been rewritten even as recent as January 2021 and as far back as Lincoln’s time because after the civil war is probably when Maryland decided to change the meaning behind it’s nickname. And as for the election fraud I’ve analyzed the statistics and posted them on Fakebook. That post will be forthcoming here eventually.
So now back to the State Nationals and fast forward to today. Others can and have provided much better accounts between then and now, so again eventually I will have more of those references, including a timeline showing the steps taken chipping away at our Constitution and our Bill of Rights.
Today everything is a Corporation thanks to Lincoln, the state and local governments, the police forces, the legal system, the executive branch, the legislative branch and even the supreme court and of course the banks, and churches. Now the interesting thing about a corporation is that it is an abstract entity. Our founding fathers never intended for the government to be a Corporation. And when you are born onto this soil, your parents unbeknownst to them, signed you over to be an associate of the Corporation when they signed your birth certificate. At that moment you became a slave to the Corporation and under their jurisdiction which is sea. And you are held to all the crazy laws they created under the corporations simply by that social security number. And now you pay taxes, and follow their rules.
It is said and perhaps proven that you can’t solve systemic problems as those which exist in our current government today with the same system which created those problems. So we won’t be able to solve the government overreach, the BIG government growth, the squeezing out of people and the medical tyranny all that exist today, you won’t be able to solve those with the current government. It is far far too corrupt. So what do we do? We can’t create our own huge military to overthrow the current government. So what do we do?
We separate from their system of lies and slavery. We separate from their rules and we correct our status to have our jurisdiction back on the land and soil, where they do not have jurisdiction. We follow the steps our founding fathers provided in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. And we re-establish our government by the People and for the People.
With this correction taxes no longer need to be paid. So once we as State Nationals reach critical mass, the funding needed to hold the current government together, will no longer be available and so the government will fall. We are not talking about 20 years from now. We are talking about 2 – 3 years being the prediction.
We currently have enough people to have all of the 50 states represented in what is being called State Assemblies. Someone said we have 100 million members which is 1/3 of the US. Wow! Again I don’t have a reference for that, but when I do I’ll post it.
We will need to also get involved and help build the new government based on our original Constitution so that when the fall occurs, the new will be there to replace it. We have much work to do. I believe this is what President Trump was referring to when he mentioned so often, “It is now up to the People.”
Anna Von Reitz did much of the legal research for this movement as well as others. And today many resources are available to help us correct our status and topple our current government and replace it. It’s here folks, this is going to happen, it has to! It is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when and when is NOW! Not in your decedent’s lifetime, it is happening right here on YOUR watch. Contact the Maryland State Coordinator, and follow the short and easy process. Be a part of the solution!!
So many times there are things you do once and then never have to worry about them again. Until….
An easy way to create a new web page is to start with choosing and installing a theme, choosing and installing one of the demos for that them, and then working from that. You can either change the posts or create new ones. You can either change categories or create new ones. And you can change the pages or create new ones.
But the one thing that is not intuitively obvious is setting the page you want as the landing page to be the Home Front Page! It’s not in the theme settings, it not in the page settings, although you can easily see it in the list of the pages. No this is completely hidden. And it is one of those few things that you do once, and then forget about it until months later when you want to create yet another web page!
Ok I had to ask. I asked the theme developers because I purchased the theme and it seems to me it would be a part of the theme. But no the designers of WordPress thought this would be better served as a WordPress setting. So it is something that needs set in your WordPress home backend. On my host (Bluehost) it looks like this:
If you haven’t yet told WordPress which page is to be the Home Front Page, then instead of Update it will show Start Here. In fact the nice thing with this is you don’t have to name your home page Home. You can give it any name and it is the Front Page setting that specifies it is the landing or home page for your site.
I teach and promote that with proper mindset and emotion that we can change our environments to meet our goals. So the question is how did we ever get to here – lockdown, shutdown, social distancing, masks, fines, arrests. More on this soon.
