Wednesday February 15th – 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 †

      No worries folks I figured out why they hate Trump. It’s not because of gay or woman’s rights, nor immigration, muslims or constitutional issues. That’s all smoke to veil the issues. It’s because they see Trump working 20 + hours a day and they are afraid he will make the public work week like his. Hee hee.

      There were Godly men in Biblical Times and many prophesied. I see no reason not believe there are still some in modern day.
      Kim was a good man. A devout preacher, devoted to God, but of course MSM loves to paint them otherwise.
      He was once a wild one, but found God. He lived just long enough to see his prophecy fulfilled. He died of pneumonia and complications due to his diseased lungs on Nov 23rd, 2016.

      I remember years ago when Glenn Beck had his show and he talked about how the guy who’s gonna save our country might not look perfect- and he used the illustration of the high-rise building with odd looking windows- vs the typical “slick” politician and used the illustration of a perfect-looking manhatten skyscraper as a visual.
      That stuck with me and Trump is EXACTLY what Beck predicted, too bad Glenn doesn’t realize that.

      Prophet Kim was the “real deal” as a prophet. I was watching him for several years before he died. It was confusing sometimes because he described several future presidents including a shorter & less talkative man (Pence?), an African-American woman, a “burning bush” from Texas (George P?) and a future grandson of a SCOTUS judge called Justice. Kim was upset that he “had” to prophesy Obama into office in 2004 because he was a fan of Sarah Palin. Kim kept prophesying that after Obama, the NEXT president would be bold & fearless (like David) and have God’s favor. That gave me hope because it obviously wasn’t Hillary. I didn’t know this until after Kim died, that he and another prophet Lance Wallnau were supposed to see Donald Trump after Labor Day 2015. Kim, I believe, would have anointed DT to be the president, but Kim was struck down with a stroke (due to brain cancer) that weekend from which he never recovered.

      Anyway, thanks for this website and thread (which I refresh often). I lurk here everyday and check on what’s going on with the new administration. The comments on this thread are high-class.

        I’m pretty sure all the excess administrators are included in the employees. I remember when administrators stayed in the schools and didn’t go gallivanting all over to various meetings, travel expenses paid. A lot of the problems are caused by the administrators. Not that all administrators are bad, but a lot of bad teachers move into administration. And, usually there’s no cap on administrative salaries or how many can be hired.

    Robert Louis Stevenson and His Wife – John Singer Sargent (August 1885)

    Robert Louis Stevenson is pacing and his wife Fanny is seated in background to the right of the door. By and large, the critical review was mixed about this painting. They thought the composition odd and the depiction of Stevenson strange and unflattering.

    But Stevenson, himself, thought that Sargent had captured correctly the odd way in which he fidgeted about the room when he wrote.

    Neither the artist nor the subject ever thought that the painting would one day be posted on a blog. 🙂

    To summarize and paraphrase Thomas Paine in his work “The Crisis”
    We’re in a crunch now, time to nut up or shut up, are you a patriot who keeps fighting the good fight even during the hard times or are you a poser- pretending to be tough but at the first sight of hardship, you tuck-tail and run?
    In order to free ourselves of this tyranny of globalism we must press on! Keep fighting, keep praying, times WILL get darker, but it’s always darkest before the dawn. We will have several more losses to come, but if we keep pushing, not backing down, not settling for anything less than total and complete freedom- WE WILL WIN.
    Let the recent superbowl game be an illustration- the pats looked like they were going to get crushed, but they didn’t give up- until finally, the falcons in their arrogance made several blunders- and the pats took advantage and won the game in the final moments. Keep marching on. The game is not finished!

    During his talk at Georgetown University, Jonathan A.C.

      BTW: Labor unions have donated more than $10 million to the Democratic senators who will question Labor secretary nominee Andy Puzder on Thursday.

      The 11 Democrats on the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions have been allies of organized labor throughout their careers. Four of the leading Democrats have cashed in on more than $1 million for their campaign war chests, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

      Donation totals ranged from $32,000 for freshman Sen. Maggie Hassan (D., N.H.) to $2.1 million for Ranking Democrat Patty Murray (D., Wash.). Socialist Sen. Bernie (I., VT) had the second-highest haul, with $1.88 million in contributions from labor groups over the course of his Senate career. He also received substantial support for his insurgent presidential campaign against Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in 2016. He received about $243,000 from that sector during the drawn out campaign.

        Warren said on the Senate floor today, that the Chair of the committee, that Puzder was to be grilled by (my words) the H.E.L.P. committee, would not allow workers who had worked under Puzder to testify in his hearing. So Warren said, the (D) Senators on that committee, held their own hearing with testimony from Puzder’s workers, and she said 17 Senators showed up. (She did not name names; so who knows if they were all from H.E.L.P. committee)

        My point was, Sen Warren was essentially going around the Chair of the H.E.L.P. committee, and taking testimony for the record, before the guy had even had his first committee hearing!!

        Puzder, was doomed, even before he started.
