Tuesday April 25th – 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 †

    We have to have the big announcement on tax reform/cuts this week. It should be tied to the Obamacare repeal and plans for both should be announced together.
    I can’t stress how important it is after 8 years of crappy Obama style “recovery”.
    Geet ‘er announced and then Geet ‘er done!

          I quit the Republican party when I realized that 50% of Republicans are actually democrats who can’t get elected in Republican districts unless they run as Republicans.

          This is why the “big” things are not getting done even though “Republicans” control the House, Senate, and White House.

          These democrats can be smoked out in the 2018 Republican primaries but probably won’t be because only democrats have guts.

            • This is why I keep harping; we have to defeat Republicans in PRIMARIES and Democrats in the general. It is a generational struggle that won’t be turned around quickly but CAN be turned. This is ALL OUR fault. We keep electing these idiots at a 95% + pace.

                Absolutely agree, Keith. We must get rid of the blockhead, no good doer Repubs. Vote them out in the primaries!!!

                And I no longer consider myself a Republican / Conservative OR Independent, either. (Never was nor will EVER be a goober Lefty Loony Dem!!!) I happily took on the role of being a Deplorable as accused of such by the Wicked Witch of the Left that Friday in September.

                Keep going, Mr President. You’re doing fine!! I know you will not let down the forgotten, hard working, American loving men and women who gave you the job!!

                Exactly … we have to street fight in the caucuses, then the primaries and then present a united front in the generals. If someone claims to be a conservative, put their feet to the fire to prove it. Then, if they CAN prove it, back them … and back them hard. Them hound them from the moment they step foot in their new offices until the day you primary them out again. And stop listening to the crap about needing to keep sending someone back to keep their experience. If they aren’t working, from day one and not just in the run up to the primaries, for your interests, then the “experience” they are gathering is BAD experience. Fire their sorry asses and start over with fresh meat. (Note: Conservative Review does a pretty good job of keeping score of their voting track records.)

            I believe TRUMP knows exactly what he’s up against with Congress…and I further believe he is capable of engineering a solution. TRUMP’s solution may not look or work the way we wish, but his work so far with Asian leaders should give us hope that he, just like he says, is “ON IT”.
            I refuse to believe that, in the long run, evil will overcome TRUMP’s desire to make America a fit place for us to live our lives.
            I am not blind, I do know the power of this evil, I simply believe there are motions going on behind the scenes of which we are unaware.
            There is a reason why the Cabinet is made up of goal-oriented individuals. And, just as TRUMP keeps right on keeping on while all of this mess just appears to be getting stronger…yet I have no doubt that plans are a foot to deal with “this mess”, be it on the streets or in Congress.

    March 24, 2017 Breitbart article: Exclusive — Discussion About GOP Replacement to Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House Intensifies in White House, Congress.

    Paul Ryan should be removed. He keeps getting in the way. Won’t accept the NAFTA letter? Goes to Europe while all the legislative issues just sit. Comes back from Europe and says funding is more important than Obamacare ergo taxes. The Congress hasn’t passed a budget in 10 years. Constantly on the other side of the Trump agenda. Ryan has got to go!

    Treepers are the best sleuths in the world. Someone gave me the following inspirational writing. I would like to know if any of you have seen this before and if so do you happen to know who authored it? It’s really good.

    I am called into this earth with purpose, reason and Destiny. I am the reflection of Jesus Christ in the Earth to lead others to Him.
    For that reason:
    I am not bound, I am free
    I am not sick, I am healed
    I am not down, I am lifted
    I am not confused, my mind is clear and sound
    I am not poor, I am rich
    My debts are paid in full
    I have overflow for Kingdom Purpose
    I am who God has called me to be for such a time as this
    I shall live and not die so that I might carry out my God assigned purpose
    I shall rise up and take my rightful place in my home, community, church and Kingdom

    All assignments, plots and plans of the enemy are cancelled now, in Jesus’ name, Amen

  23. SEOUL, April 25 (Yonhap) — North Korea staged what appears to be the largest firing drill on Tuesday to mark the 85th founding anniversary of its military, a government source said.

    “Signs are detected that North Korea’s military is conducting a large-scale drill around the eastern port city of Wonsan on the anniversary,” the source said.

    North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is presumed to have watched the exercise involving some 300-400 long-range artillery pieces that can put Seoul and its adjacent areas within range, it added.

    The move is seen as North Korea’s show of military force against Seoul and Washington instead of staging a large-scale provocation on the founding anniversary of the Korean People’s Army.

    Speculation has been rife that Pyongyang may conduct its sixth nuclear test or launch a long-range ballistic missile to mark its military event.

      The evil in this world prowls around,
      Seeking, grasping, to pull us all down,
      And win us over to the wicked side
      Where the power and love of God is denied.

      I live in trembling fear through the day
      Of the evil that could come my way.
      I spend my time without peace or cheer
      As I feel its darkening clutch come near.

      Oh, that I had the wings of a dove
      To flee this world to my Savior’s love,
      To fly away to His shelter and rest,
      Secure in His arms, both loved and blest.

      I call out to God to hear my voice,
      To come to my aid and make the choice
      To use the power of His mighty arm
      To rescue me from this evil unharmed.

      The Lord will hear and the Lord will save
      Though evil prowls nearby to enslave.
      He gives me peace and restores my cheer
      Though the threat of evil is always near.

      He takes all my cares and gives me life,
      Calms my storms in spite of evil’s strife.
      Though I might stumble, He’s always beside.
      He won’t let me fall, my Strength and my Guide.

      Evil will always be prowling without,
      Seeking his prey, causing fear and doubt.
      But as for me, my life’s been restored,
      With peace and joy and faith in the Lord.

    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

    From the left coast, the ninth circus court has long been regarded as a joke. It has now entered the realm of total fantasy assuming powers greater than the Presidency with its latest travesty of justice. Is there a mechanism available to rid the country of this despotic band of unelected black robes? Can they be relieved of their position, or fired or recalled? Justice is not well served by this particular court.
