Thursday April 20th – Open Thread

Our 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 †

      Sheriff Clarke,
      I would like to second your motion…I do not know how we reached this stage in the first place. I am not for uniform laws; just the ability to carry a firearm between states without the possibility of breaking a law without prior knowledge of its existence. Manuals available at gun stores, gun shows, shooting clubs and ranges and instructional workshops would be a start. God bless our founders and their Second Amendment!

        While I agree with your sentiments wholeheartedly,I’d like to ask ‘ why don’t you know how we got here?’ I think the reason Americans like you and me don’t know ‘ how we got here’ is because liberalism is that insidious. It’s like a disease that creeps in unnoticed,unannounced & starts to eat at the very foundation and structure already in place( in this case conservatism,capitalism) until the entire foundation gets weak and collapses.In reality it starts in the schools with indoctrination. Liberal democrats work hard to fill key seats in order to get control of our children. It starts there. I hope w/ this surge of nationalism and love of country ,we can gain enough courage and fortitude to continue our gains until this stink that’s been in the WH for for the last group of years ,is gone and the threat of gun confiscation w/ it.Lets not ever sit on our laurels now that we know what the liberals and globalist have on their agenda.God Bless America. Thank you for such a wonderful post.

        Maybe psychotic loner mass shooters didn’t exist in the days the Founders lived, and it would not be something they could have conceived of. Neither could they have conceived of how modern society would cast aside the foundational moral rock of the Ten Commandments, that was bred into people’s lives by the Bible’s central presence in society.

    • He had his gun in a holster at a public place at night with drinking involved? This looks a Darwin award ready to happen. I’m glad he was pardoned but his lack of common sense will catch up with him. He needs to find new friends.

    Yesterday, on the Presidential thread, Pam posted a 4-18-17 update from Mark Taylor, the fireman who has the Trump prophecies. I watched it.

    I have been following him for about a year. I don’t know much about prophecies, but they gave me hope; and I do know that I believe that God is involved in all of this, or Hillary would now be President.

    I went back about 8:00 last night and the video had “been removed by the user.” Then, I went to his website, and it says, “404 Error, Page not found.”

    First I was just frustrated, and a little bit mad. Then I was creeped out and kind of scared. I’ve heard of things being removed from Facebook and you tube, but can websites just disappear?

    With the media as it is, and a lot of churches a mess, what if everything about God just disappears off the internet? How do we get information if the internet is so compromised or controlled?

    I’ve been a little off, but I’ve been following events unfolding around the now empty channel of Daddyoffive from Damascus, Maryland:

    I emphasized “now deleted”, because as we began to collect and save his videos for evidence to CPS, courts, and local tv stations, the coward deleted his videos after a faux apology where he instead whinges that Philip DeFranco took notice of the child abuse in these videos.

    There is also now a possibility that the children Cody and Emma were taken from their aunt through forged documents.

    Some folks on 4Chan who have the full dox of the father, whose name is Mike Martin, I don’t know if they’re using it to hopefully spam CPS so that the people paying attention can exhaust legal means before resorting to anything more drastic, but this man and his landwhale wife make me sick, and the more people who can contact the CPS, Fox5, and the police of Damascus, Maryland of the archived footage Daddyoffive is trying to scrub off the Internet, the better.

      Its not in the archive footage I’ve linked to, but other material saved by people has the two parents commenting about Cody smearing feces on the wall, which several Youtubers have mentioned as one of the telltale signs of extreme trauma.

      If you can watch videos on youtube, there’s a BBC multi-part series called “The Impressionists” that is a treat to watch. It is a dramatization based on the diaries, letters etc. of Monet, Renoir, Manet, Degas, Bazille and Cezanne. It weaves their interconnected stories and relationships with the historical events and people of their times, and explains the stories behind many of their works.

    A food tech startup that has raised $118 million in venture capital — including from some of the most prominent investors in Silicon Valley — is facing questions over its flagship gadget.

    Juicero charges $400 for a machine that presses juice from its proprietary juice bags and that requires a smartphone app. The problem? Users may be able to squeeze the bags for free using their own bare hands.

    hmmmmm, something seems off here…. read the rest of the article! The venture capital groups could careless that this $400 machine is useless.

    Despite the latest revelation about the juice packs, some investors are optimistic about the company’s future.

    “There is no doubt the packs can be squeezed without the machine,” Vast Ventures general partner Doug Chertok, a Juicero investor, told Bloomberg. “I’m still a huge fan.”

    “Juicero is still figuring out its sweet spot,” he continued. “I have no doubt that they’ll be very successful.”

    Where in the world is Barak Obama? A very poorly written article said among other things that BO left Tahiti on April 17 after hobnobbing around the Society islands with leftist celebs. No mention of where he went! I can (and admittedly I haven’t looked that hard) find no articles about where he went or arrived; no gossip, no nothing. Does anyone here know? The press is unbelievably uncurious.

    This #FAKENEWS bull poo has to stop by CNN!

    US authorities have prepared charges to seek the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, US officials familiar with the matter tell CNN.

    Later in the article CNN makes this statement followed by a pull quote from AG Sessions:

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at a news conference Thursday that Assange’s arrest is a “priority.”
    “We are going to step up our effort and already are stepping up our efforts on all leaks,” he said. “This is a matter that’s gone beyond anything I’m aware of. We have professionals that have been in the security business of the United States for many years that are shocked by the number of leaks and some of them are quite serious. So yes, it is a priority. We’ve already begun to step up our efforts and whenever a case can be made, we will seek to put some people in jail.

    does anyone see where AG Sessions was specifically talking about Assange being a priority?

      Assange’s lawyer (in the very next paragraph) makes this statement:

      “We’ve had no communication with the Department of Justice and they have not indicated to me that they have brought any charges against Mr. Assange,” said Assange’s lawyer, Barry Pollack. “They’ve been unwilling to have any discussion at all, despite our repeated requests, that they let us know what Mr. Assange’s status is in any pending investigations. There’s no reason why Wikileaks should be treated differently from any other publisher.”

    We are moving now from the information aggression against Russia to an even more complex issue. The number of fake social media accounts, on Facebook for example, of Russian foreign missions has beein on the rise. Fake accounts created for our embassies in the Czech Republic and Slovakia published incendiary and misleading items on high-profile issues in the focus of users’ attention. We have noticed the extremely high professionalism of these fake accounts’ authors. But this is only part of the story and not the most interesting one.,73:10:voU

    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 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

  30. I like this about Ann

    Ever tried dealing with a playground bully? What shuts him (or her, for our politically correct readers) up fastest? A bloody nose.

    Bullies operate on the assumption that they are safe from retribution. When they find out that’s not true, they curdle like spoiled milk. Until then, their conduct can only spiral further out of control.

    That’s what’s happening at colleges across America. Students who think they can dictate what is said on their campus are shutting down any point of view they oppose. That’s not youthful indiscretion. It’s a crime. And the perpetrators should be prosecuted for it.

    This week, the University of California at Berkeley – a communist commune that poses as a cathedral of learning – succeeded in getting conservative commentator Ann Coulter’s scheduled speech canceled. The university later suggested she give her speech on May 2 but she rejected that date.

    The reason for the original cancellation: college administrators feared her presence might pose a security risk.

    A risk to whom? Coulter? She can take care of herself. The students who, masked in balaclavas and paisley handkerchiefs, think the best way to express their opinion is to smash in windows and set fire to cars? They want their freedom of speech to be unabridged, including acts of violence. Coulter sets only verbal bonfires with her intentionally overheated rhetoric.

    It’s time for college administrators and campus police to grow a pair, and prosecute students who engage in these antics. Shutting down free speech is a crime, as Jay Sekulow, the chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, knows.

    ”What’s going on with Ann Coulter is classic viewpoint discrimination,” Sekulow told me. “The Supreme Court has been consistent that viewpoint discrimination is a violation of free speech. And that is illegal.”

    So who needs to take action? “It’s the school’s job to prevent the protests from becoming violent,” Sekulow says. “Letting students create a hostile environment that shuts down free speech opens the school to lawsuits.”

    So let’s stop worrying about the students’ rights and prosecute the criminals among them. Here’s how, according to Sekulow:

    “In a public place, and that includes the campus, you’re allowed to videotape what the students are doing. From a criminal perspective, the campus police would have to bring the lawsuit against people who are rioting. Frankly, until now, what the campus police have been doing is nothing. And the result is that free speech is being shut down. This goes way beyond political correctness. This is criminal conduct.”

    College life is a time for young people to be exposed to new ideas, to weigh them and decide what works for them as they form their adult personalities. The message today’s students are getting is: agree with me or keep your mouth shut. That’s not education. It’s tyranny.
