Sunday January 29th – Open Thread

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 †

      I can’t listen to this one right now. It ALWAYS makes me cry, no matter who sings it. In fact, I am tearing up just thinking about it.

        Gosh Mom! That is something we have in common. One night it came on the radio and the tears just streamed down my face. My son asked me what was wrong so I told him it was the song just had that effect. Years back I took my mother to a concert by a Canadian/Irish tenor. He sang it for an encore and they left the lights down when he had finished so that the audience could dry their tears. I’m dripping while I’m typing just thinking about about it.

          Music has that effect on me, too. The first few verses of “It Is Well” do me in, but the final verse makes me smile through the tears. Remember that was the song that Melania cried while it was being performed at the prayer service on Saturday.

          Hey Treepers, can someone provide me with the definition of Liberalism that Sundance gave us recently? Something about Liberalism is the wilful denial of obvious facts in order to promote their agenda?


  4. Getting immigration under control requires a starting point. It’s clear that protests were planned in advance of this temporary ban to allow vetting to ramp up. #TheWarIsOn

    • I also wonder if people are misinterpreting the ban to cause trouble. I’m thinking that, because a Somali man that lives in Minnesota who has a green card was detained at the JFK airport. But I have one question, where s he flying home from?


      • RG says:

        They aren’t misinterpreting anything. The words “Temporary” and “immigration” don’t compute with liberals and MSM. I watched Gutfield last night and one of the regulars kept making remarks about “Executive Orders” and she is confused on that topic as well.

        With Trump you need a few ounces of education to know that temporary means just that and that his executive orders are just making way for laws already on the books to be obeyed.

    (Proverbs 6:16-19) {16} ¶ These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: {17} A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, {18} An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, {19} A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”

    Over on, on a thread about President Trump’s plan to publish the weekly lists of crimes by illegal aliens, one of the commenters – Stryker714 – provided a link to the Dustin Inman Society’s website – I urge everyone to take a look – on one of the pages, there is a comprehensive list of all the people and organizations that are on the side of the illegal aliens – incredible! Also, please do read the story of Dustin Inman who was killed on June 16, 2000 – taken away from his loving parents (his mother’s injuries from the accident resulted in her having to use a wheelchair). The website for the Dustin Inman Society has an excellent quote from Plato on the top of the page – go look at it, please – if we refuse to participate in politics, we will be governed by our inferiors . . .

    Maybe we should spend less time on sports – like Super Bowl Sunday – and spend more time holding these cowardly politicians to account for their heartless enabling!

    Here is the link to the Dustin Inman Society’s website and their page regarding Dustin Inman:

      Thank you for the link to

      Yes, we can support victims of needless, preventable tragedies caused by invaders by raising our voices and educating ourselves and others.

      Elected officials, bureaucrats, and “not for profit” organizations and “charities” are financially rewarded for coddling, enabling, and encouraging invaders who do not respect our nation, our values, and our way of life.

      They make money from the enemy by creating chaos then steal more money from us while pretending to “fix” the same problems they cause.

      Double dipping in the devil’s blood money.

      We must demand that the anti-American, open border supporting, amnesty advocating, slave labor trading (globalist) traitors be prosecuted as accessories to the countless crimes committed by their hoardes of invaders.

      The key players orchestrating this invasion can also be prosecuted by any State Attorney General under the Rico Act for being part of a criminal organization.

      Who are some of the leaders of this anti-American invasion ?

      How “charitable” is it for churches, for example, to betray U.S. Citizens – putting their lives, liberty, security, earning power, and peace of mind at risk – by accepting contributions and tax money to enable hoardes of illegal invaders ?

      Why are we paying the enemy to attempt to destroy our nation, our sovereignty, and our way of life ?

      What can we do today and every day to stand up for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” ?

      As we face the storms of hate, deceit, and lies, may our love of freedom be a blessing for each of us and for others.

      May our shared love of freedom bring us together and empower us with strength, perseverance, and unity.

    This is a link to an excellent article about liberal media bias. The writer points out that lots has been written about Orwell’s “1984” topping the sales charts as people are seeing it as a guide to the changes taking place, but not much is being said about a book on Kermit Gosnell, the abortionist, getting to number three. It’s well worth reading the whole piece, although the descriptions of what Gosnell was doing might be off-putting for some.

    Did you know there are ‘Wolverine’ frogs that pop their retractable claws from their toes?

    Now, in a bizarre case of life imitating art, scientists from Harvard University have discovered that a group of African frogs use weapons similar to the X-Men comics, superhero Wolverine who is armed with three sharp claws on each arm that extend through the skin of his hand.

    The frogs defend themselves with sharp bone claws on their hind feet but to do so, the animals have to drive the claws through their own skin. It’s an extreme defence that is completely unique in the animal world.

    The Great Giver

    God chose us in Him ere the world was laid,
    And it was by His hand that we were made.
    According to His will, our lives began,
    And as we grew, it was by His perfect plan.

    He gave us His only Son, Who died for us,
    To cover our sins, and abide with us.
    He changed our hearts from our old fallen man,
    And gifted us faith, then belief began.

    He gave us His Word so we would know,
    And gave us His Spirit so we could grow.
    He gave us His gifts so we could serve
    And gave us His fruit, more than we deserve.

    He protects us from evil as we live,
    And deserves much more than I ever give.
    In heaven now, He’s preparing a place
    For us to live and see Him face to face.

    And in the future, He will surely come
    To snatch us away to our permanent home,
    Where we’ll remember that old, old story
    And forever give to God all the Glory.

    “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God” Romans 3:23
    Jesus says “43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. 44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? 47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? 48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matthew 5:43-48

    We have a problem, God requires perfection and we are way less than perfect.

    God solves this problem when He sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross then raised Him from the dead to pay the penalty for all the sins of those who believe and trust on the Lord Jesus.

    “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” Isaiah 53:6

    ” Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved.” Acts 16:31

    Believe and repent.

    The best way to love those who are suffering in the middle east is to tell them the Gospel of our Lord, kill the evil that is causing their suffering, protect them in their homeland, and keep killing the vermin until they are no more. Bringing them here while leaving the vermin in their country to gain strength is a sick form of evil that causes more suffering.

    Elder Dallin H. Oaks of the Quorum of the Twelve explained:

    “Scripture reading may … lead to current revelation on whatever [subject] the Lord wishes to communicate to the reader at that time. We do not overstate the point when we say that the scriptures can be a Urim and Thummim to assist each of us to receive personal revelation.

    “Because we believe that scripture reading can help us receive revelation, we are encouraged to read the scriptures again and again. By this means, we obtain access to what our Heavenly Father would have us know and do in our personal lives today. That is one reason Latter-day Saints believe in daily scripture study” (“Scripture Reading and Revelation,” Ensign, Jan. 1995, 8).

    Stories for Noah

    A very exciting week for America has closed. I went out to get the Sunday paper and the smell in the air reminded me of spring training, my favorite time of year. Makes me recall old baseball stories.

    Your uncle was playing peewee football and got ripped off a tackle pile like you get at that age. He cleat stuck in the ground and messed up his knee. The knee doctor said too young for surgery, the cartilage may heal over time. He gave him some contraption to immobilize but let him walk with crutches.

    Spring comes and it’s time for little league practice to get ready for the season. Your dad and uncle were going to be on the same team for the first time. Your dad was one of the top studs in the league, expected to help carry the team to the championship. On April Fools Day we decided to prank coach. Your dad was under strict orders not to do anything dangerous before the season because of what he had done the year before. While riding his bike he flipped it and broke his arm, missing the first few weeks of the season.

    We showed up to practice with your dad using the crutches and the knee contraption that went from the ankle to the hip. Coaches and parents were freaking wondering what happened. Told them he flipped the skateboard in the driveway, he should be good to go in eight weeks. Oh my goodness! Season’s over. What now. Let’s practice. Your dad took off the brace, ran onto the field to get loose. Coach dropped the rake and gave your dad the stink eye. But he knew who was behind the joke. The other kids thought it was hilarious, the adults not so much. What great memories.

    The old VHS tapes are somewhere around the house. We had a great season, won the league and played well into the postseason. Set the stage for success for the league as a whole. Another story that ends with a little league world championship.

    The British Medical Association is advising doctors not to refer to pregnant “people” as “expectant mothers” in case they are trans or transitioning. Surely the world has gone mad!

    There is a link in the first paragraph which will give the actual pamphlet and on page 5 of the said document there is this statement

    “A large majority of people that have been pregnant or have given birth identify as women.
    We can include intersex men and transmen who may get pregnant by saying ‘pregnant
    people’ instead of ‘expectant mothers’”

    Heads up to all the mothers on this site. You are no longer part of the normal course of nature, you are now part of “a large majority”. Mods, kindly make sure that all Treepers use the correct pc terms in future!

    “Derain, author of a 2012 report on children’s viewing habits, said porn was shaping many young people’s view of sex.

    “Sexuality in real life is not like that,” she said, but children who have grown up watching “tubes” have trouble making the distinction.

    “I have been involved in a number of very serious criminal cases where boys have systematically done to girls what they saw on porn,” she said.

    New York City 7th District Congresscritter Nydia Velazquez was all over President Trump’s posterior like a wet diaper all day yesterday [actually – she’s still blathering on today too]. She was at JFK airport ‘standing with the protestors’ and spewing all kinds of crazy, and, obligatorily of course, spewing all kinds of lies, too.

    Then, all of a sudden, one of the detained travelers from Iraq, Hameed Darweesh, was released. She immediately rushed to his side — bringing all the news cameras and reporters with her — and she began trying to ‘console’ him after suffering his ‘horrific ordeal’. News cameras were rolling and journalist’s recorders were recording when one of the reporters asked Iraqi immigrant Hameed Darweesh how he felt about President Donald Trump.

    Watch NYC Congresscritter Nydia Velazquez’ face when he answers. El Oh El !…….

    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
