Monday January 30th – 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 †

    Andres Segovia is arguably one of the greatest, if not the greatest classical guitarists who ever lived. He was friends with Mexican composer Manuel Ponce whose music he often often performed in his concerts. This piece, in fact, was one of his favorites. Hearing it in concert was a magical experience.

    Drudge has a link to a report of an attack on a mosque in Quebec City. 6 dead. I don’t see any identifying info about the perpetrators. It will be interesting if this is an anti-Muslim attack. Trudeau has been acting all haughty lately. I don’t recall anything like this happening in the US, Justin.

    Another reason to avoid Amazon: they are collecting sales tax now in states where they didn’t used to. That was the only reason I shopped on Amazon. I don’t remember when it changed by i started being charged tax some time ago, I guess they have some distribution center or other part of the business in Illinois.


    • Karin says:

      Yes! They are also going to start charging sales tax in MO Feb. 1. I hate it! However, 30 states have already been paying it. MO is getting a distribution center as well. I think they should start charging sales tax AFTER the center is built. They haven’t even bought a lot yet.

        They might have to shut down the distribution center after they start collecting sales tax. 🙂 But look at it this way, we shouldn’t be support Bezos anyway. He’s a notorious Trump hater. So I’m like “OK, whatever, I’ll shop elsewhere”.

    I’m becoming concerned about Drudge. Last few days he’s become a little….unhinged…Go have a look. Headlines…..”Where’s the tax cut?”……I don’t think it was meant to be tongue in cheek. ..Provocative…They want everything NOW.. like President Thump has been sitting around doing nothing. Headline meant to create angst, methinks.

      I thought the exact same thing. And then I started reading the article and it made the Drudge headline even more odd, because the article didn’t support the headline (at least in my opinion). By the way, to all, I wouldn’t recommend reading the article. It was just a bunch of nothing..

      I don’t like Drudge, haven’t since I was on the receiving end of a self righteous rant from him on Atlas Shrugs a while back.
      He’s an over rated hack with delusions of grandeur and questionable motives when you get right down to the nitty gritty.
      Not surprised, not at all.

    My problem with Drudge has become fearing clicking on any of his links, which typically cannot be read unless you are a subscriber to it or will subscribe that moment in order to read the article. No thank you, I just don’t need to read it. Why would Drudge include such sources? Now he’s lost me.

    Our Republican meetup (NYC) this weekend was infiltrated by Leftwing goons who started shouting threats and obscenities — they refused to sit down and shut up, so a struggle broke out, and several of our men took them down and carried them out by all four limbs, still shouting, saying “We have you all on video!!!” Then they called the police when they were ejected onto the sidewalk: the cops came, and pretty quickly figured out that these were troublemakers (luckily for us, the LEOs mostly hate leftists).
    Thing is, in NYC, the leftwingers have a real effective informal Blacklist: they hate conservatives and won’t hire us, or promote us; they have no problem slandering us online, etc. But the mood of our group of patriots was angry defiance.
    But it was wild. Shook me up a bit: I saw the red, contorted face of the principal thug — he was crazed with fury. This may come to civil war in the end, folks. Sure hope not, but the Leftists need to be de-programmed, and fast. They’ve gone full-Jonestown.

      They’re demon-possessed. Just listen to the rabid, foul rants from the “Womyn’s March” on Washington, D.C., and it is reminiscent of possessed people who get exorcised, indeed even the ones mentioned in the Bible were like this.

      Their father is the Devil, the father of lies. That’s why I call them DEMON(c)RATS.

    Re Drudge: I just hover my cursor over the hotlink and look at the bottom of my screen. If I see it’s News for Yahoos or some such, I won’t click through. But he does a very useful service: he’s mostly conservative, and loves outing the leftwing nutjobs, and the fact that he links to some of their rags actually helps draw them in; then they see Forbidden Knowledge and that can only be good. He also was the man who started the chain of events that led to the Rapist in Chief getting impeached.

    I can state Unequivocally there is absolutely no doubt the common core of all violence today in the world is because of Islamic Muslim terrorist.!

    However, the Race Baiters, BLM Black Lives Matter and NWO. New World Order Establishment Democrats are fueling 99% of the violence we are seeing today in our cities.! Paid commentators, protesters and brain washed snowflakes and students.!

        Interesting observation, Sandra – definitely a possibility – however, illegals could have come from anywhere and traveled there – we have no idea who is coming across the border or from where – Trump is on the right track – this would not have happened if we had been more diligent at the border –

    Early (on a cold and snowy) morning observations:
    -Schumer squeezed out some tears…and paused…while he looked up to make certain everyone got the money shot of him crying.
    -Hollywood stars – show your sincerity in actions not words. Open the gates to your estates and provide shelter and safety to some of the refuges. They can pitch a tent in the yard, but you will need to leave a door unlocked so they can use your facilities. Oh – and you might want to read the next EO before you mouth off…just so you don’t continue to prove yourself as idiots.
    -Media: Pu-leeze. You really should read stuff – the truth is out there and it’s not that hard to find. You discredit yourself more and more every day. Soon anyone with half a brain will simply no longer listen/watch you. Your most horrific nightmare will be realized – you will be irrelevant.
    -The thought that the faces of all the airport protestors are now recorded… Surprisingly, that brings me immense pleasure.
    I, for one, have had enough of all these snot-nosed, irresponsible, lazy-a$$ dip-sh*ts.
    That is all.

      What is cracking me up are the attacks on this EO saying it caused all this confusion and everything at the airport. It the protesters had not gone, and of course they were organized, there would have been no problems. The people who were held would still have been released.

  30. David says:

    I noticed the stock market dropped 1% today in part due to uncertainties over the travel ban.

    For the record, I am a Trump supporter and I support curbing restrictions on travel, and I don’t care one bit about some mom crying about how she and her two children didn’t get a chance to eat for some 20 hours or whatever other sob story the news cameras show to try and manipulate emotions.

    But I point out the stock market drop in the hopes that both Trump and CTH will stop cheering every time the market goes up…because it is only going to come back and be used against Trump when the market goes down. There is an enormous bubble in the stock market from the Federal Reserve’s fraud and irresponsible credit policies..and it will pop sooner or later and make the ongoing recession* worse. That will not be Trump’s fault but it will need to be dealt with and accusations that it is his fault will need to be refuted..which will be easier if we don’t try to take credit for some foolish buyers bidding stock prices up even higher.

    *Obama refused to call our current recession a recession, so feel free to use his substitute word of “recovery” if you so choose.


    • BigMamaTEA says:

      We ALL know about the upcoming (when?) crash David. Personally, that is another reason I chose Trump from the beginning. Who better to have at the helm, when the SHTF? A lifelong businessman, who has struggled and overcome different financial difficulties, to end with success. Also, a lot of his nominees, like them or not, are also top of their fields, which should also help.

      Are you kidding me?! Seriously!! I would jump at the chance myself. When you put your child in daycare, you really don’t know what is going to happen to that child. REALLY. But, then again, if you don’t want to do it, maybe the best thing is to put the child in a daycare.

    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
