Thursday June 15th – 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 †

            I’ve been trying to figure out what else is going on. My spidey senses have been restless, even before yesterday…..

            Something that had not occurred to me yet, hit me this a.m. when I came across this article about threats to congress. Has/is our congress being terrorized into silence?

            There are lots of small articles, if someone cares to look, regarding the apparent onslaught of terror threats to different congress-critters. Our Republi-rats have no spines to begin with, so is this a factor that is adding to it? Think about it…..

              Absolutely. I believe too that because they are spineless, they can’t stand the look of someone else with a spine. Thus their contempt for President Trump.

            The Palestinian Arab Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammad Amin al-Husseini was the early and rabid Muslim supporter and adviser to Adolph Hitler.

            Al-Husseini proposed and encouraged Hitler to eradicate the Jews of Europe. There is evidence that he suggested what became the Nazi directive that European Jews wear a yellow badge in public publicizing their Jewishness (it was a decree originating with the Muslim Caliphate in Iraq in the tenth century).

            He encouraged and advised the Final Solution. He orchestrated the widespread, murderous riots in Hebron in 1929. Al-Husseini also recruited the vicious Bosnian Muslims for the Waffen SS and promoting Nazi ideology tirelessly throughout the Middle East.

            Muslims are the Leftists’ natural ally. (Remember: Hitler and the Nazis were Leftists.)

            And the takeaway here is this: We all have free choice. G-d is King. Choose your side.

    The Puppy Song – Harry Nilsson

    Dreams are nothing more than wishes
    And a wish’s just a dream
    You wish to come true, woah-oh
    If only I could have a puppy
    I’d call myself so very lucky
    Just to have some company
    To share a cup of tea with me
    I’d take my puppy everywhere
    La, la, la, la, I wouldn’t care
    Then we’ll stay away from crowds
    With signs that said “no dogs allowed”
    Oh we, I know he’d never bite me
    Up, la, la, la, la, la, ooh
    We, I know he’d never bite me
    Up, la, oh
    If only I could have a friend
    Who’ll stick with me until the end
    And walk along beside the sea
    To share a bit of moon with me
    I’d take my friend most everywhere
    La, la, la, la, I wouldn’t care
    And we’ll stay away from crowds
    With signs that said “no friends allowed”
    Oh we, we’d be so happy to be
    Up, la, la, la, la, la, ooh
    We, we’d be so happy to be together

        Everybody’s Talking was written by a heroin junkie- Freddie Neal, (havingto do with Neal’s mental numbness of his addiction, and need for escape- excellent chemical escapist song as such) . Wisely chosen for the movie Midnight Cowboy specifically because Dustin Hoffman’s character was a junkie, and only a “somebody” because he was willing to do anything for a fix. Always have thought it poignant that Jon Voight is a conservative as opposed to Dustin Hoffman (who is def. not- and a weasel). Realizing that the book “Get Shorty” by Elmore Leonard was written about shorty Dustin, the premadonna- and the movie of the book Hoffman played by Danny DeVito. .

    Looks,like a hung jury in the Officer Yanez trial.

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota jury returns Thursday for a fourth day of deliberations in the trial of a police officer charged with manslaughter in the death of a black motorist, a day after the judge admonished them to keep working.

    Deliberations began Monday in the manslaughter trial of Officer Jeronimo Yanez, who shot Philando Castile during a July 6 traffic stop in a St. Paul suburb after Castile informed the officer that he was carrying a gun. Castile, 32, had a permit for the firearm.

    Yanez, attorneys and family members for both Yanez and Castile returned to court Wednesday afternoon, leading to speculation a verdict had been reached. Judge William Leary, without explanation, re-read a portion of the jury instructions to jurors and told them to resume talks.

    The material dealt with jurors carefully considering and re-examining their views and their duty to “deliberate with a view toward reaching agreement.”

    The hearing took just a couple of minutes. The jury went back to continue deliberations but broke for the day soon after without a verdict.

      Interesting that the people rioting against the communist dictatorship carry signs saying “The Resistance”. The Leftist socialist/marxists, led by Loretta Lynch (and hitlery’s new “resist” website/PAC) urging “blood in the streets” in her video, goading the unstable useful idiots into committing acts against our elected representatives and President, and using Alinsky “inside the government mobsters” to aid their revolt- are the exact opposite politically from these desperate people (who are not all what they seem, and may contain agitators from Maduro to get them to justify his police state of Bolivarian’s–what irony).
      Maduro and the commies have imported 20K Cuban military and put them in federal police uniforms (fact)- and now wants to re-write their constitution to eliminate a whole group of private business owning people (if in fact they cannot kill them all- like the Weathermen wanted to do in the 70’s).
      In the US the Left are trying to destroy our Republic, ignore the Constitution and complete a dictatorship with the help of most of the media who are agit-prop (agitator propagandists) and communist/marxists themselves, with elements of a politized judiciary protecting their “turf” , and who largely gave financial donations to the Leftist loser presidential candidate. This is what Leftist dictatorships do, and when frustrated- turn to violence (which they say is acceptable….. just because- like children they are bred to be).

          Sad part is….as Stand Fast actually alluded to…..who knows who those “anti-government” protesters really are. If your government is corrupt and you are to the point of physically fighting in the streets as a patriot, to remove the said corrupt government, are you really the Resist movement, (as we know here now, or ) are you past that point, where there essentially is a flip in rhetoric and take the mantel of the bad people in other places. What a mess.

          I hope we do not get to that point. Remember when Obie first met Chavez…..and Chavez said “Welcome Comrad.”

    FAKE NEWS: CNN PUSHES THE OUTRAGEOUS CLAIM THAT ISLAM HELPED TO CREATE THE UNITED STATES

    While Muslims were present at America’s founding, Islam — as a coherent, self-conscious religious and political civilization — was not. Had it been present, one would have expected the Founding Fathers to be more aware of it, and one would have expected to see an American version of the faith emerge, one more comfortable with ideas of tolerance and individual liberty, much as different reformist versions of Judaism flourished in the United States.

    As close as I can figure, they hate, fear, and abhor Donald Trump merely because their savior, Barack Obama, was running against him.
    The fact that Obama technically wasn’t allowed a third term, so he shouldn’t have been campaigning against the other party’s candidate, that just gets ignored by them.

      What you said….. “The fact that Obama technically wasn’t allowed a third term, so he shouldn’t have been campaigning against the other party’s candidate, that just gets ignored by them.”….. is just a little snippet of the mindset of those being controlled by all of the propaganda.

      People have split, family, and friendships, and who knows what else, over POLITICS???

      These are not the American people I thought we were. Many have lost their moral compass, down to the basic stuff. Some days I wonder if a piece of the population is being drugged or hypnotized, or something.

    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.
