Tuesday June 13th – 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 †

    Robert Mueller has a HUGE conflict of interest based on his close friendship with James Comey, his reviewing (approving legally?) Comey’s testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee and the possibility of Comey being a witness or even target of the investigation.

      Although President Trump has the authority and “right” to terminate the Special Counsel, doing so would create a media and Democrat-fueled “firestorm” of protests claiming first he fired James Comey to try to stop the investigation and now he has fired Robert Mueller because the investigation was getting too close. On the other hand, if Mueller’s conflicts of interest (and there are several) are exposed and highlighted, he could be forced to RECUSE himself from the position. Same result, but with little chance for political blowback. #MuellerMustRecuse

      I think you’ll find Mueller is gone and the SP closed down within the next 2 weeks.

      Sessions volunteered to attend tomorrow – that is critical. It’s not like anyone is forcing him to attend, he wants to be there. His testimony will be public, too.

      I suspect that he will deliver more damaging blows to Comey. This will be new stuff and may deliver some significant blows. I suspect Trump has put his hand into his bag of private dirt and also that Sessions has some of his own evidence.

      Remember, the SP was Comey’s idea and he would have been one of the key witnesses, so the more his credibility is damaged, the harder it is for Mueller to proceed.

      We will see.

      Wouldn’t it be possible that Mueller has already extended limited immunity (based on comey having to come completely clean on his clinton-owned career, HSBC, NYC. Then, if today Sessions decides to publicly “un-recuse” because of all the manipulations that comey has done to fake him out to recuse since his swearing in, Sessions would have oversight on Mueller and the internal details of just such a “performance based” immunity. Not a lawyer, just asking. The worm turns.

    Ex-basketball phenomenon Sebastian Telfair is busted in Brooklyn ‘with a car full of loaded guns and marijuana’ during a routine traffic stop
    12 June 2017


    Telfair was pulled over driving through the Brooklyn neighborhood in a Ford F-150 pickup truck because the headlights were not turned on.

    Just before the incident, the pair drew the offices’ attention parked illegally on a median on Atlantic Avenue near Classon Street.

    When first pulled over, police smelled what they believed to be marijuana before spotting a burning joint inside the truck, according to the Post.

    Police then asked Telfair and Thomas to step outside the vehicle and put them under arrest before conducting a more thorough search of the car.

    After doing so, officers discovered two bags of marijuana and the gun collection, including a SIG MPX Pistol, a Ruger LC9s, and a Springfield Armory XD9 Mod 2 Pistol, reported the Post.

    WARNING: The second video in this post does depict a mink killing a muskrat graphically.

    For people fascinated by America’s various critters, I stumbled on this channel a while back featuring a man named Joseph Carter, who’s made a hobby of training mink to hunt muskrat (with occassional pest control regarding a certain chicken coop that got infested with rats). He’s been a nature enthusiast for years and he’s dubbed his own hunting sport with mink as ‘minkenry’.

    Two of my favorite minks he’s owned and trained are Fang (in the video with his daughter Olive), and Washushe (the orange bull mink we get to watch hunting) for all the training he went through to eventually be trusting of Carter even though he was at first a scary little guy.

    Second WARNING: the video will bring it up also, his mink, Fang, was socialized with baby Olive when she herself was a few weeks old and even then, she’s heavily supervised at all times she and the baby are together. Mink are very dangerous when not fully socialized with the right people and in an earlier video, Washushe have Chase to Joseph’s friend’s hunting dog right after successfully killing a rabbit during a training session!):

        I don’t know about where you live, but where I live, our formerly adequate public housing has been filled with so many immigrants that people born and raised in the area can’t get a place.

          between massive, out-of-control-no-end-in-sight urban development/sprawl/gated communities (retiree living) and free habitats for foreign whatevers (immigrants/refugees), many of the year-round, working class locals are quickly becoming the new homeless, or close to it, due to soaring costs of housing/living, each year getting worse than the last…pitching tents in the everglades (while the everglades last)…or leaving.

          there are many VETS who are cared for by their families or safely retired…but too many who aren’t and who live in the wild here…I see them occasionally, outside of stores or sitting on corners.

    Hi, first time posting so please forgive me if I’m not very good. I found the treehouse and I’m thankful for that. It helps to know that what I see these days is not my imagination, but it is terrifying.
    I humbly consider this the Lord’s leading. There are a couple of verses that come to mind; Jeremiah 17:9-10 The heart of man is evil above all things who can know it. (10) I God I I know the heart.
    Job 19:25 I know my redeemer lives and will stand again on the earth.
    Pastor Billy Graham quoted the Jeremiah verse at the 9/11 services.
    My heart is sick with the condition of mankind today but this is prophecy unfolding. People have turned away from God and are becoming depraved and reprobate hence the continuous assault on all that is decent, hence the verse “God gave them up”
    I pray all the saints through-out the earth take heed, pray without ceasing and remember “the earth is the Lord’s and EVERYTHING IN IT” God said “vengeance is Mine I will repay.”
    Stand fast in the Lord pray for our President,

      So glad you are here!

      Thank you for your good words from God to us, His children, to remember He is all in all, sovereign over all, and worthy to be praised eternally.

      I love Job. One of my favorite Bible verses (of course all of them are pretty much my favorite), “Thou He slay me, yet will I praise Him.”

      We will continue to stand in the gap for our President, and give thanks to God for His goodness to us in giving us Donald Trump.

        Since the Tower of Babel, man has tried (thru satan) to upstage the Creator – even the antichrist will boldly proclaim himself God – in front of the whole world –

        Unfortunately, pseudo-science helps man ‘create’ nonsense and make it believable to those who lack the ears to hear and the eyes to see – satan is ‘prince of this world’ – and he still thinks he can ‘create’ – even though he never had the ability – many are deceived – as for me – I will never take the word of a scientist over the Word of God!

    Repairing the Downspout

    Today, my wife said to me, “Honey, get off your ass
    and fix that gutter downspout! And, I want it done
    before the end of the day!”

    Well, as you all know, at my age, and most of my friends,
    are retired and do have the time to address such “Honey do’s”.
    So, I invited some of my buddies over to help with the
    project. One is a sheet metal worker. One is a Iron Worker
    so he came with his welder. One brought beer and Nachos.
    One brought a grill and burgers. Took us about 6 hours,
    and 30-40 beers, but we got it done just as we finished off
    the last of the beer and burgers.

    As usual, the wife is not happy.

    Can’t understand, cause all us guys love it.

    Personally, I can’t wait for it to rain.

    It’s a battle out there but it’s the Lord’s and He will uphold us with his mighty Hand.
    I like to keep in my heart the trial Jehoshaphat and Isreal faced in2 Chronicles 20, he sought God’s help and God replied: “Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battle is not yours but God’s. When Judah went out those who sang and those who praised Him went out before the army against the sons of Moab and the sons of Amon and God defeated them.
    Seek the Lord first in all things.
    God bless you all, and our President Donald Trump may he keep him safe from harm and protect him from evil according to His will, amen. 🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🌷🥀
