Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Look down upon me, good and gentle Jesus, while before Thy face I humbly kneel, and with burning soul pray and beseech Thee to fix deep in my heart lively sentiments of faith, hope and charity, true contrition for my sins, and a firm purpose of amendment; the while I contemplate with great love and tender pity Thy five most precious wounds, pondering over them within me, whilst I call to mind what the Prophet David put in Thy mouth concerning Thee, O good Jesus: “They have pierced My hands and My feet; they have numbered all My bones.”

    For George Soros, Ireland abortion fight may be first step against Catholic countries

    Dublin, Ireland, Jan 2, 2017 / 05:08 am (CNA).- Wealthy abortion backers could use Ireland as a model to change pro-life laws in other Catholic countries, an apparent leaked three-year plan for George Soros’ Open Society Foundations suggests.

      Thanks Dora. There is a real effort on to repeal article 8 of Bunreacht na hÉireann (The Irish Constitution) which guarantees the right of the unborn child and which was approved in a referendum some years ago. I should have known that Soros was playing a part. There have been rumours of foreign money rolling in, same as the gay “marriage” referendum.

    Taken from: Rocks & Waves Song Circle
    This album is a mystery. A Swedish artist named Isaak Sundström brought it back from Mexico in 2014 after having recorded it with a local choir and an Haitian solist. They recorded together five of Isaak compositions. We don’t know the name and number of the persons singing in the choir. We don’t know how Isaak met those singers. We don’t know how long he stayed there. The only thing we’re sure of is that this album has a unique approach and sounds like nothing else. We could try to describe it as a DIY gospel choir delivering a conscious message of love and unity. We could tell that the world needs to listen to this album. For its infinite strength and universal power.

    I have posted on the subject of profiling before, but this one gets me:

    It was successful! They knew the suspects! Back in the days, 1970s, I was regularly pulled out of the line for questioning and searching when travelling between Ireland and England. I was a young, bearded Irishman and people of my description were setting off bombs in England. I expected the questioning etc. and didn’t resent it. It seemed like common sense to me that I was a suspicious character and that the authorities were giving me extra checks. I knew I was doing nothing wrong and had nothing to hide. The worst I could say about it is that it took time, but often produced humour, like the time they found I had a bag full of packets of tea and boxes of biscuits. The security fellows asked me if I was going to open a cafe. I explained that my aunts and me believed that Irish tea and biscuits were far superior to the British variety. I think that calling it “racial profiling” is the problem. It is not racial profiling, it is “suspect profiling”. NB Islam is a religion not a race, so pulling out Muslim suspects is not racial profiling.

    Bear with me, please, Treepers. Life and death stuff here.

    The first time I ever commented at CTH was because the subject of Shawn Lucas’s death came up in a thread, and, as I explained at the time, his father, Bill, is one of my oldest friends, and my son grew up playing with Shawn. Shawn credited his interest in martial arts to my own career. Our families were very close.

    Just before his death, Shawn put up online a viral video of gleefully serving the DNC with a law suit related to the Bernie Sanders campaign. Then, a short while later, this man in his thirties was discovered by his girl friend dead on their bathroom floor. The attorney who drew up those same papers was also killed — by two gunshots to the back — supposedly in the course of a robbery, although neither his cash nor his jewelry were taken.

    I’m bringing this up again because the hacker collective Anonymous has now released a global statement which makes significant and specific reference to Shawn…

    The last time I commented here about this disturbing situation was to explain that, on the day after Shawn died, Bill told me the District medical officials specified his post-mortem and autopsy would take 90 days. Time enough for the story to cool down and go away. It has not. Meanwhile, the autopsy turned out to blame Shawn’s demise on a cocktail of non-lethal OTC drugs, including a popular muscle-relaxant, and several other legal drugs which neither his father nor his girl ever knew Shawn to use.

    Although Bill and Shawn’s mother have declined to make any public statement at this time, Bill did privately tell me one fascinating detail which I feel needs to be put on the record and shared by those interested in the long trail of dead bodies left in the Clintons’ wake.

    Unbelievably, the coroner’s formal report was not immediately given to the family first. No, it was sent directly and exclusively to the DNC. Make of that what you will.

    Tyrus Wong died. He was a great Chinese artist, American career, inspired Disney’s masterpiece Bambi, and was a success, mostly unknown to the public, but hugely talented. Chinese often are not known, especially to the great ones who made a great contribution to American arts and sciences. Wong was 106 years old.

    Another great Chinese man was Qian Xuesen. One of the founders of the Jet Propulsion Lab at Cal Tech, major figure in US missile technology development. Badly mistreated in the early fifties for ideological reasons by fear of Chinese and Communism, he went back to China and became the father of their rocket development.

    These two men, born in China, worked in America, contributed their original genius. They didn’t hack or pirate or steal. They created great art and science.

    There are many more like them. We were fortunate to have their persistence and inspiration, in spite of prejudice and poor treatment.

I learned a lot about humanity that day. The evil ideology couldn’t suppress the human spirit. We couldn’t speak each other’s language but we were able to smile at each other and rejoice in the achievements of God given talents.

    To my Treeper family,

    Tomorrow I go to court with the crazy guy who threatened to rape and murder me for waving Donald Trump signs along a roadway in September. My Victim’s Advocate wants me to write a Victim’s Statement, but I have not come up with anything to say. This past year has been full of people abusing me for my stand on Donald Trump’s Presidential run, so this crazy guy’s threats seem to just blend in with the rest of it. Maybe being threatened with murder just topped everything off for me until we hit November 9th and victory sent the snowflakes scampering.

    If any of you have thoughts of what I could say on my Victim’s Statement that has to do with freedom of speech — especially when it comes to having differing political opinions (which was why he was going to rape and murder me) — please let me know by posting it here.

    Thank you so much for any suggestions you may have!

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
