Tuesday June 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 โ€

      Garrison, that was spectacular! Is that only three strings?

      I must tell you that many years ago, as part of a June vacation in Williamsburg, VA, as a teenager, my family attended an evening concert by Julian Bream in the Capitol Building. During the concert, a massive thunderstorm started, creating a blackout. However, the candles that were lit continued to provide the illumination for the most memorable concert I still keep close to heart.

      Mr. Bream, realizing that all of us were completely stuck, just continued to play…to the delight of all, a two-hour concert. And to this day, one of my loves is listening to classical lute or guitar on rainy days! Today was one of those days here in the Hudson Valley!

      Thank you for introducing Treepers to all of these wondrous artists!

    Terrorism Not Ruled Out In USS Fitzgerald Crash:
    – – Military officials are not entirely convinced that the collision between the battleship USS Fitzgerald, and a Japanese cargo ship was just an accident. Upon looking further details and piecing together all the facts, they are considering the possibility of it being intentional and a terrorist attack.
    – – First of all, the cargo ship made a U-turn prior to hitting the USS. A U-turn in which the company who owns the cargo ship denies happening. They also say the incident happened nearly an hour before the U.S. Navy reported it.

        You’re welcome.
        I’m disappointed in many who were not opened to at least waiting for more facts/reports to become available before slamming me for what I posted. Wow. It is amazing to read about so much commentary from so-called experts – who were not there, btw.

        I was particularly disturbed about the report from one of the sailor’s mother that the ACX Crystal had turned off it’s running lights and sonar beacon shortly before impact. There is no telling if we will ever hear that report or not – since all the survivors who were involved have probably been ‘debriefed’ by now.

        It is not at all convincing to me that the ACX Crystal decided to make a U-turn after a hit and run incident which caused damage to their ship as well. Did they think that they merely hit a ‘bump’ in the ocean and then later decided to go back and check to see what they hit? Their ship should have come to a full stop – period.

        As you said, you can’t please everyone.

For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.

    WASHINGTON, D.C., June 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) โ€” Protestants take diametrically opposing views of abortion in America. While the Southern Baptist Convention just โ€œdeclared warโ€ on Planned Parenthood, calling on Congress to defund the nationโ€™s largest abortion business of tax dollars, other denominations are urging Capitol Hill legislators to continue giving half a billion tax dollars to the countryโ€™s largest abortion provider.

        Without knowing any of the background, very hard to conclude anything. To you Crossthread, if your beloved knows her doc and her child, those are excellent signs. Strokes do funny things to short circuit the brain, but there is sooooo much that can be done through rehab. Sometimes it takes 6 months, but keep faith in medical professionals and in the Lord. May God bring clarity and healing to your wife, courage and strength to you both, healing hands, grace and mercy. Praying for her speedy recovery and your peace.

      I suspect from what he said, she had a stroke – caused by a blood clot – dependent upon on which side of the brain the clot is located – here is some information about what happens – from personal experience, it is frightening what a stroke victim suffers – and more so for family/friends – who are at a loss from lack of knowledge and/or understanding – but, God is Good – He gives us the strength – His Spirit guides us to the knowledge and understanding we need to help us cope and respond effectively – as long as we trust in Him – He will see us through – and in the process – heal our loved one!

        Crossthread might want to look into some alternative therapy options. We have a family member who suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury and have had experience with a few different ones with varying levels of success.

        Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is one that’s been used with stroke victims in particular and I have personally met several who had remarkable improvements after treatment. We used the same for our family member and we’re so impressed with the results that we purchased our own chamber that we’ve used at home.

        Her doctors all advised against the treatment and told us it was a waste of money. Two of them and her therapists asked us for all the information we could provide them after seeing the changes from a single round of treatments.

        Not sure this is the best link but at least give some details about how they believe HBOT helps in regards to stroke in particular.
        http://www.hbot.com/hyperbaric-oxygen-therapy-treatment-stroke-and-chronic-traumatic-brain-injury

        G Therapy by Dr. Oswal in India is another we have personally tried and also are believers that it has been very beneficial to our loved one.
        https://www.facebook.com/TreatmentforDevelomentalandLearningDisabilities/

        Doctors in the US will poopoo most any off-label treatment. I advise any individual contemplating the above (or other treatments) to do their due diligence, consider the potential risks and benefits and decide what they are comfortable with.

        Prayers again for Crossthread, his wife and family.

          Thank You for the wonderful information you have provided, Jason – I am sure it will help Crossthread immensely –

          A friend of mine went through Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and found it very helpful –

          I agree doctors are not at all supportive of alternative therapies – however, when a loved one is involved – one looks at all possibilities –

          It is a fresh reality for Crossthread – right now, he is dealing with so many things – questioning everything – even doubting his own ability to handle this new development in his life – hopefully, what you have provided him in your post will ease his mind and calm his spirit – God Bless You!

Remind her of MAGA, remind her of the time you went to that beautiful rally with First Lady Melania in Wilmington. Remind her of TrumpForce One coming in on that spectacular day.

          Maybe that joy will jog her memory. Repeat any of her favorite sayings she would say with you: Choo Choo Baby, MAGA, Make America Great Again, President Trump won the election!!!!!

    • Post-stroke memory loss is very common. There are treatments and medications, but sometimes the symptoms may last years or become part of a permanent pattern of decline. Others recover, either spontaneously or after treatment. Hard to predict a prognosis soon after an event. Lots of individual variation.

      Prayer is a deep and important comfort, but I also support patient education. Many of us reading will have to face a similar situation in future for ourselves or loved ones. Here’s a good starting point for general readers to become more informed:

Proposal by a White House task force on pharma is VERY Bad. Hopefully the president does the opposite. Where is Bannon? Candidate Trump campaigned on allowing drug reimportation. This doesn’t allow or facilitate that. It’s an attempt to be able to extract more from foreigners. That’s fine, but we need to be able to buy medicines for Americans at the cheaper prices for which those medicines are sold in other countries. Allowing reimportation solves that immediately. This scheme of “help us charge more from foreigners and we promise we’ll cut prices (a tiny bit) in the US” is laughable. Riiiiiiight….. Bullet point 7 from candidate Trump paper of healthcare https://assets.donaldjtrump.com/HCReformPaper.pdf was clearly meant to allow drug reimportation. That’s what we voted for – not policy dictated by industry shills.

      PS. Nothing would put The People more quickly on Trump’s side than to allow drug reimportation ASAP – by executive order, if possible. Hmmm Trump vs Big Pharma. Which is the better political position?

    Just saw on WWHL that the Anthony Michael Hall character in the movie War Machine is based on Michael Flynn from the Michael Hastings book The Operators.

    If you haven’t read that book I’d highly recommend it. It was well written and a very interesting read. It definitely gives us an idea of what Michael Flynn and his brother are like in addition to being a study of McChrystal.

    I’ll have to check out this movie now. Hopefully it does Flynn and McChrystal justice.

    I’m probably going to break my Hollywood boycott to see Dunkirk. If you don’t know much about Dunkirk I’d encourage you to study it a bit. It is a fascinating story and a much bugger part of WWII history than is taught in most American schools which tend to focus more on Pearl Harbor as the exclusive causative factor for the US entering the war.

      I don’t think this is an issue. Uranium was stolen from Russia. The U.S. came into possession of some that was thought to be part of the stolen uranium. Russia asked for a sample from us, just part of a 10 gram piece, to test to verify whether it was part of the stolen uranium.
      . . . a non-issue that’s keeps popping up as though something nefarious is going on.

      All I need to read to know: “The resolution was drafted by a Muslim organization, EmgageUSA (formerly EmergeUSA) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC). ”

      It’s completely one-sided and a special interest on behalf of a partisan religious political network.

      If there is going to be a bill, it should state all colors and religions including white and Christian. Three decades from now, whites and Christians might be a minority as it is in Indonesia and other muslim countries, and will therefore not be protected because the group is not listed in the bill now. It should include all races, but I doubt this Muslim organisation sponsoring the bill will accomodate.

      ** The middle-east ought to adopt a bill like this protecting minority Christians before the US should even consider it.

        And the more I think about this, the madder I get.

        Larry Willmore _never_ believes American police officers and _never_ believes the American Justice System is fair and transparent. (See his comments on Ferguson, etc.)

        However, he completely accepts the North Korean Police’s statements and their justice system.

        The evidence that Warmbier even took that poster is shaky. The “security video” shows a shadow of a figure, not a clear image, and the poster was just white text on a red background, hardly the thing a person would take as a souvenir (there was no artwork, no photo of Kim Jung-Il, etc.). It makes no sense that someone would take this as a “fraternity prank” on a spur-of-the-moment trip.

        Larry Wilmore is a disgusting traitor. Trump should buy him a 1-Way Ticket to North Korea.

    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
