Monday May 1st – 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 †

      Yes, that was a funny line and true. Trump does a good job of not playing the liberal media’s game.

      On another note, I’m not sure why the recent NSA announcement isn’t getting more play.
      The National Security Agency just announced that it has shut down its controversial surveillance program in which it tapped into email and text conversations between Americans and people abroad that mentioned specific foreign targets. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in 2011 found the NSA to be in violation of the Fourth Amendment, protecting against unreasonable search and seizures, after Internet companies sometimes transmitted bundles of emails, in which perhaps a target’s email address was mentioned only once.

      NSA claimed that it found and reported that analysts digging through this repository were violating the procedure agreed to by the court. Ed Snowden responded via twitter: “Translation: NSA broke law (“compliance incidents”) so gravely it necessitated ending a program. Blood in the water.” To me, this shows that the NSA under the Obama Admin was illegally collecting information on Americans, which they could have used to spy on Trump, his associates, etc. Again, why isn’t this getting reported more widely?

      Disgusted….let’s change the dynamic here. Retrain your brain to think “search” rather than the word “google.” (Social construct of giving “google” too much cred., kind of like….you might want a Dr. Pepper, but a lot will say, let’s have a “coke”)

      The G-company is EVIL now. They are in bed with with the deep state. I refuse to give them the power of branding when talking about internet searches. The G-company is so infiltrated into our we experiences, when there are other options. For myself and my family and friends…we all use Startpage.com as our homepage.

    screenplay, Rod Serling…at his best.

    JFK approved of the release of this controversial film…he went to Hyannis to allow for the protest scenes (not in this clip) to be filmed outside the WH….he wanted this film made & released to raise awareness of the military’s resistance to nuclear disarmament/Soviet Union.

    ‘Marine A’ Sergeant Blackman: ‘Wife In A Million’ Saved Me

    Sergeant Alexander Blackman, better known as Marine A, has spoken out for the first time since his release from prison, saying that his “wife in a million” saved him.
    “I will be eternally grateful to Claire and I cannot put into words how wonderful she is,” he told the Daily Mail.

    “She is a wife in a million. Other inmates often said how lucky I was to have her fighting so hard for me.

    “I don’t think there is anybody who has witnessed the effort she has gone to who will doubt how she feels about me, and that’s beyond words really.

    “You just can’t imagine anyone cares for you that much.”

                ……..”Sergeant Alexander Blackman, better known as Marine A, has spoken out for the first time since his release from prison, saying that his “wife in a million” saved him.”

                Now, the words “spoken out for the first time since his release from prison” are what stuck. I saw a pic of a more “manly-ish” in appearance person, and in”muh asleep brain”

    A former congressional information technology (IT) aide allegedly threatened to have his stepmother’s Pakistani relatives kidnapped if she talked to U.S. law enforcement authorities, according to court documents obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation’s (TheDCNF) Investigative Group.

    “Imran Awan threatened that he is very powerful and if I ever call the police again, [he] will … kidnap my family members back in Pakistan,” Awan’s stepmother, Samina Gilani, claimed in the documents filed April 14 in Fairfax County, Va., in the case of Americo Financial Life and Annuity Insurance Company v. Abid A. Awan and Samina Ashraf Gilani.

    Americo said Muhammad Shah took out a $50,000 life insurance policy in 2012, naming Gilani as beneficiary. But on Nov. 16, as Shah lay on his deathbed, Americo received an Ownership Change Request form to allow Abid to be in charge of future administrative decisions.

    Then on Jan. 11, Awan used his newly gained status to make himself beneficiary of the policy instead of his stepmother. A police report shows that in January 2017, Gilani called Fairfax police claiming her stepsons refused to let her see her dying husband in his final moments. Police said Abid angrily waved an unsigned power-of-attorney document at an officer and refused to give Shah’s location.

    Imran Awan and his brothers Abid and Jamal are under criminal investigation by U.S. Capitol Police on suspicion they abused their administrator-level access to sensitive congressional data, as reported Feb. 4 by TheDCNF. Gilani claimed Imran Awan represents himself in Pakistan as a powerful person in Congress and is given police escorts when he spends time in the country.

    Gilani has said she was left homeless after Abid Imran forced her to leave the house she previously shared with her husband. Fairfax County land records show Abid owns two residences.

    The three brothers, plus two of their wives, were employed on a shared basis by dozens of Democratic members of the House of Representatives, including members of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs and Committee on Homeland Security.

    The Awans’ IT jobs gave them access to congressional computer networks, including members’ email accounts. They were also linked with an Iraqi politician who is a fugitive from U.S. authorities and who has been linked to the Hezbollah terrorist group in the Middle East.

    Emmanuel Macron promised to facilitate the construction of mosques in France. He declared that “French culture does not exist” and that he has “never seen” French art. The risk is high that Macron will disappoint the French even faster than Hollande did.

    On the evening of the second round of elections, people will party in the chic neighborhoods of Paris and in ministries. In districts where poor people live, cars will be set on fire. For more than a decade, whenever there is a festive evening in France, cars are set on fire in districts where poor people live. Unassimilated migrants have their own traditions.

      It’s the big forehead that all evil scientists have that makes their eyes look close together. There used to be “Mars Attacks” collectible playing cards from the 1960s that portrayed the evil Martians as having Macronian shaped heads … if you take off “Macron’s” phony looking hairpiece there will undoubtedly be throbbing veins all over his skull. Be honest … doesn’t “Macron” sound like the name of an evil Martian leader? I hope I have cleared this up.

      No one is saying. See my post below for my thoughts on it.

      Based on one interview I saw a female student said it was quiet then everyone started running and screaming and she thought they were playing. She suggested he got to the first victim by attacking him quietly but idk of this is accurate bc she was probably in shock.

      This is s fantastic school, had been one of the safest until a female student was raped, tortured, killed and dumped like trash on campus by a young black homeless teen from a local shelter. He’d been in town days before he did it. The local paper barely covered it except to say he was a victim too bc he’d had a sad life. There was also an engineering student who was arrested for recruiting jihadis on campus.

      God protect our children on campus from these forces of evil.

    Please pray for students, staff, and faculty at the University of Texas at Austin. This is a heartbreaking situation. I have a close relation there now. Safe praise God.

    I’m seeing claims it was Antifa bc they have definitely targeted the Greek system w vandalism and a manifesto filled with violent threats of destruction but this did not happen near the Greek houses.

    Looking at his FB pics, he seems to have grown a distinct beard in the past year or so and recently told a friend he was taking a break from his studies bc he had a lot going on. Antifa normally attacks in groups, campus Muslims have all acted alone so far. He also was not dressed like a typical Antifa. He does have Antifa friends on FB but there has been a nexus between those groups just as there has been with BLM.

    Whatever it is, please pray for the people on campus, those hurt, for the friends and family of the murdered and for the repose of their soul.

    God bless America and have mercy on us all.

    Well the ice might be melting or not. Hamas is shifting on Israel, Jews, and Muslim Brotherhood a little bit. Doesn’t mean much until they abandon the historical violent means, but it does create an opening for diplomacy by President Trump’s team and by Russia and Egypt. All are interested in getting peace process going in talks.

    The proof will be in their actions. Hamas has a long way to come in from the cold. But this is a thaw.
    This is how long processes begin. The FARC took 30 years in Colombia. The IRA took 40 years, or you can go to the root of their 400 year insurgency. So, we can hope for this to be a useful beginning.

    This is a rather long article but it perfectly describes what is going on in our divided country i.e. ruling class versus the rest of us (country class).
    Sun Dance has referenced parts of this phenomenon but this article nailed it several years ago.

    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 pray for France, and for the safety of Marine Le Pen.

    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
