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 †

    Pi (π) is the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter. Pi is a constant number, meaning that for all circles of any size, Pi will be the same.

    Somebody over at GP did a neat photoshop of the Fox News radio reporter (Jon Decker) that accosted GP reporter Lucian Wintrich.

    This joker accused Wintrich/GP (and any non-MSM, essentially) of being anti-semitic Nazis, among other things. Considering Wintrichs grandparents were Jewish victims of Nazis in Poland, this is simply beyoned the pale.

    Other people heard Deckers outburst, and reported on them, yet he still has his WH press credentials.

    From the “Faux’ ( aka Fox) News files there’s this tidbit of idiotic ” click bait” reporting : “Carnival cruise ship nearly plows into jet skiers…. ” EXCEPT that the spring break holidayers were messing around on a personal watercraft n the channel as the cruise ship was departing and fell off ! Fortunately ( for them ) Brevard Cty deputies were able to rescue them from “underfoot” the vessel ! Once witnessed a similar event involving a jet skier and a bulk carrier in a narrow river channel. The skier was playing with the “haystacks” from the bow thruster and discovered there was also a “hole” as well. He and the jet ski disappeared . I later heard bits of his toy were recovered floating in Lake Michigan .

      The east coast needs to get over themselves with regard to snowfall and hurricane wind forces.

      Both in MN and in CA we frequently experienced straight-line winds between 75-100 mph, for hours at a time, often at night, and nary a peep was heard anywhere on the national scene. On the local scene, we mostly just spent the breaks in between (about 8 hours a day of calm conditions) cleaning up and getting ready for the next round.

      Weather people don’t have enough to do so they make normal stuff really important. Many kinds of snowflakes there are.

      Frequently heard in MN when it was -8 F, the expected high for the day, “Thank God for global warming.”

      If Republicans want to help people struggling to understand their AHCA, I’d like to suggest they work with a graphics professional. I am not blessed with such talents, but I do “see” Obamacare as a train headed toward a cliff. Coupled behind the engine is a string of cars which are either hated (like the mandate) or appreciated (like pre-existing conditions). Passenger tickets cost more due to higher premiums; high deductibles are barring many ticket holders from climbing aboard; and, with insurance companies continuing to drop out of the exchanges, I see more ticket windows being slammed shut.

      What I see Republicans attempting to do is lay down another set of tracks on the horizon which will divert the train away from the cliff. Stage 1 is the Y-shaped connector where the train first gets redirected then halts temporarily; while stopped, the pre-existing conditions and 26YO children cars stay attached, but the mandate and cookie cutter plan cars are removed. Next, the train inches forward, but doesn’t travel far. Just ahead is Stage 2, a series of “stations” where Secretary Price’s regulatory “packages” are picked up. Then, much further along, is Stage 3 where shiny new cars are coupled on (“buying across state lines”, “negotiated pharma prices”, etc.).

      I understand why some changes can be implemented quickly with only 51 Senate votes while other changes will need 60 Senate votes. But for people who don’t get this yet, maybe crossing gates could be placed at Stage 1 and Stage 3 locations.

      Just a suggestion. Thank you, Sundance, for providing a place to share ideas.

      Please post this on the Presidential thread as well, Smiley.

      It’s great.

      Quote:
      “After Trump secured the nomination, Obama’s people filed a wiretapping request. As he was on the verge of winning, they did it again. After he won, they are doing everything they can to bring him down.”

      “A few weeks after the election, I warned that Obama was planning to run the country from outside the White House. And that the “Obama Anonymous” network of staffers embedded in the government was the real threat. Since then Obama’s Kalorama mansion has become a shadow White House. And the Obama Anonymous network is doing everything it can to bring down an elected government.

      Valerie Jarrett has moved into the shadow White House to plot operations against Trump. Meanwhile Tom Perez has given him control of the corpse of the DNC after fending off a Sandernista bid from Keith Ellison. Obama had hollowed out the Democrat Party by diverting money to his own Organizing for America. Then Hillary Clinton had cannibalized it for her presidential bid through Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Donna Brazile. Now Obama owns the activist, OFA, and organizational, DNC, infrastructure.

      But that’s just half the picture.”

      There’s lots more, of course. Greenfield is always on target.

    Was Obama Simply a Hoax?

    Obama was not a hoax, imo, but a Democratic politician who lied about everything and who knew 51% of American voters enjoyed the lies because he was a Democrat, and a cool black Democrat at that.

    I call him a con man. The true measure of a con man is after they are unmasked, the people they conned still can´t believe the person isn´t legit. By this measure, Obama will go down in history as one of the greats.

    Feminists stage bloody fake abortion on woman dressed as Virgin Mary

    TUCUMAN, Argentina, March 13, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Feminists in pink masks pretended to commit an abortion on a woman dressed as the Virgin Mary outside a northern Argentina cathedral as part of an International Women’s Day protest last week.

    A photo of the protest shows what looks like blood and body parts gushing from between the Virgin Mary’s legs, facilitated by the pink mask-wearing feminists. The woman dressed as the Virgin Mary holds a fist in the air. She appears to be smiling and wearing a rosary around her neck.

    A full image of the display is at the bottom of the article.

    The Ongoing Discussion about Pope Benedict XVI’s Resignation Receives New Fuel

    Since the abdication of Pope Benedict XVI in February of 2013, speculations have never fully ceased as to whether he was pressured to do so, after all, in order to make way for a more progressive-leaning pontiff. Archbishop Luigi Negri has now given new fuel to this debate in a recent 6 March interview, as reported by John-Henry Westen at LifeSiteNews:

  28. (Reposting) REMINDER!!!!

    The 15th is this week! Be ready to send President Trump a postcard.

    “March 15, everyone mail a post card to Trump that publicly expresses our support to him.

    He’s standing for America while all around him, including, it seems from the leaks, some of the closest insiders are trying to derail him. This is unprecedented, truly unprecedented, in American history. We, in vast numbers from all corners of the world, will overwhelm the President with our support and belief in him. We will show the media and the politicians that we are standing with him!

    Tell him thank you for taking on the job of making America great again. And most importantly, we will bury the White House post office with complete support that even the media cannot deny. All we have to do, every one of us, is write a post card to the President expressing your support in him and his decisions.

    Mail it on MARCH 15, 2017, everyone all on the same day.

    Imagine the impact this will have. Do the math: there will be millions. Post this on your FB account, Twitter, Gab or other social media accounts.

    Here’s how to get them to Trump:

    President Donald J Trump
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
    Washington, DC 20500

    POSTCARDS ONLY. NO ENVELOPES. They would have to go through Secret Service for inspection. Remember, March 15. Put it on your calendar and send some post cards on 15 March.

    https://fellowshipoftheminds.com/2017/03/08/send-a-postcard-to-president-trump-on-march-15/

    IMPORTANT!
    IMPORTANT!
    IMPORTANT!

    While I was Googling info on this event, it seems that Libs have decided they want to send Trump pink slips on the 15th, so we all need to be ready with postcards to counteract that. We spoke on election day, and we better keep talking if we don’t want the Left to drown us out.

    If you can’t find a postcard, there’s one on the site that I linked that you can print out and mail.

    Please share this with everyone you know. If you can’t repost it somewhere like FB because of liberal friends and family who would whine about it, cross-post this to another Conservative website.

    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 and their families 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
