Monday July 17th – 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 †

      Why, why, why, are these irresponsible procreators’ issues my problem ? !!! And our “Progressive Elites” demand this be the SOP for America ? I can sympathize with the checkout clerk angry at at the abuses of the welfare system she see daily. I know I’ve seen EBT card users load multiple grocery carts into high-end SUVs parked in a Fire Zone ! Long past time to overhaul what EBT pays for. Forget the soda and snack foods, forget the steaks, forget frozen foods. EBT ought to be confined to veggies, basic cuts of beef, port, chicken, ham, sale fresh fish, bread, milk, OJ, butter, lard staples like flour and baking soda and powder and canned goods. Want a cake,? Learn to bake !

      It’s maddening. TBF, I will say Obama didn’t create this problem but he absolutely exacerbated it on a massive scale; I actually think someone will eventually quantify that people have a greater sense of entitlement since Obama was in office.

      The girl at 11:45 illustrates a good point I learned when renting out an apartment in NYC. I learned from the utility inspection guy that I should never ever rent out to anyone with Section 8 ( was constantly getting requests to rent to people w Section 8) because the tenants were nightmares that routinely gamed the system.

      NYC and CA have incredibly high rates of benefits from welfare (I can’t believe EBT can be used at fast food places). No one ever checks to see if the people who get the welfare no longer need it so once they are on it they are on it for good.

      People will go from places like CA or NYC and move with their federal benefits which are cost of living based to places where it is less expensive to live. For example, a person may qualify for a $2200 rent payment in NYC so they take that amount and go to a cheaper town or city and pocket the rest often by splitting the difference with a shady landlord. They know all the loopholes and often hold the property owners hostage by damaging property and then calling the gov’t to file a complaint because they want xyz added to their apartment. He said he saw all kinds of ridiculousness.

        Yet again under this extraordinary pontificate, the peculiar has triumphed over the predictable, as it did a few weeks before Easter when Pope Francis put on a sheik’s robe, a gift from Iraqi political and religious leaders, who joked they had promoted him to “pope sheik’’.

        “How bizarre, when thousands of Christians are being killed,’’ a well-informed non-church-goer in Rome said.

        Equally bizarre was Francis’s insistence, in his speech to a world meeting of populist movements in February, that “Muslim terrorism does not exist … there are fundamentalist and violent individuals in all peoples and religions’’. However sincere his commitment to inter-religious harmony, it comes at a time when more than 300 Christians a month are being killed, 700 injured and 200 churches destroyed.>end quote

            Thank you. My bf finally returned to the RCC after seeing those Christians slaughtered by ISIS – they were lined up in orange jump suits, you’d know the horrible video if I posted it. He said he was ashamed he wasn’t going to church when people were being killed elsewhere for doing so. I was so thankful. And then this back a doodle Pope happened. He said he can’t in good conscience continue to support the Catholic church and this Pope so he quit going. Even his devout 92 year old grandfather, a man who still volunteers cleaning his church daily is questioning this Pope and what is going on in the church.

            He is considering the Eastern Orthodox church as an alternative but doesn’t know enough about it to commit yet. I am not Catholic so I don’t know how to advise him on alternatives. He wants no part of my “rock concert” non denominational church lol.

            I’ve read some things about the possibility of Obama and Soros playing a role in some kind of blackmail regarding the RCC and installing globalist lefty Pope Francis. I am starting to believe there is a good chance those people are right about this.

            It’s sad. It’s the RCC who brought Christianity forward and were staunch defenders of the faith for centuries. This is tragic. It will turn many away from their faith.

            • @JJ, it grieves me to hear that your bf actually returned to the Church, – for very good reasons – but left it because of the current Pope. I am glad that his devout grandfather, though troubled by what is happening in Catholic Church – as many of us are- has not left the Church. Perhaps, his grandfather says, as St. Peter said, and as we Catholics who remain in the Catholic Church, say,” Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life”.

              The reason why I as a Catholic will not, indeed CANNOT leave the Catholic Church, is because it has safeguarded – through the ages – the revelation that Our Lord Jesus Christ gave it – when He founded His Church. The main task, indeed I would say that the only task of the Pope is to safeguard that revelation. But this Pope is actually putting that revelation in jeopardy. There are other reasons why I remain in the Catholic Church, such as the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Eucharist – an incredible and wonderul part that I truly wish I had the ability to communicate. …

              Over the centuries, many terrible things have been done by those within the Catholic Church, but the revelation has always been safeguarded…The Church remains – guaranteed by Our Lord.

              Your bf has good instincts. He saw that the Christians were under siege, (those that were being beheaded), and he wanted to stand with them, and so came back to the Catholic Church. This action speaks of his generous heart. I would encourage him to find a good orthodox Catholic priest to talk to (a priest of the the FSSP order would be one recommendation). I will keep him and his grandfather in my prayers.

              God bless,

                The Church has stood through many terrible popes. She will survive this one too. It would be easier and better though if so many of her members stopped having hysterics and started doing something constructive.

                I’m not a fan of Francis. I gave him the benefit of the doubt, but you’d have to be an idiot at this point to hold out hope that he’s even just a bumbler, rather than someone out to change 2000 years of truth and teachings.

                That being said, I have no understanding of those leaving the Church. One man isn’t going to make me leave the Church Christ left us, and the Body and Blood. I can’t quite fathom that anyone could.

According to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle, the group was greeted by a fresh puddle of urine, homeless people sleeping in hallways, intravenous drug users, dirty floors, and elevators and escalators used regularly as restrooms.”

        I was at LEOSA Qualification this past Saturday and the conversation covered two topics. The first topic was about the wreckage of what was once a effective and well respected police department. The second topic was the individuals that the PD was hiring. Coming off the street, they knew everything there was to know about law enforcement and had nothing to learn from experience coppers. Their attitude is truly frightening.

        However, I can’t blame the young coppers completely, as police departments across the country have lost their way and are forgetting their prime mission, the suppression of crime and the apprehension of the violators. My old PD use to be an old school police department, not so much now.

        We have cops handing out ice cream cones from our own ice cream truck.

        We have coppers out of service drinking coffee in the hood.

        We have uniformed cops out of service walking down the alley picking up trash.

        This whole unit is headed up by a Lt. Colonel who has a complete staff to organize these “programs.”

        Here is a photo of the commander, his deputy and one of the officers with a couple of community leaders. You may recognize the guy on the left from the Michael Brown case.

          The sad thing is this problem isn’t unique to St. Louis, but this type of nonsense is going on around the country. Check you local PD and see how many non law enforcement programs that they have and how much manpower is being used. Folks have to understand that those officers out of service on these non law enforcement activities are not available to respond to your call for assistance.

              I guess it is. We have been doing community outreach for probably 50 years or more and you can see the results from the Homicide Map I posted. This liberal crap has never worked and uses up badly needed resources.

              Also, it appears we linked up Anthony Shahid for some of this outreach????

              The liberals have never understood that Force is the major component in law enforcement. Coppers need to be trained in the proper application of force and when to use it. It is evident by all of the questionable police shootings, shooting of dogs and excessive force incidents that this goal is not being reached.

              I’ve been trying to point this out for some time here at the CTH during our police investigations that a Department has to hire qualified people, train them well, provide them with strong leadership and sound supervision or bad things will happen.

              This latest shooting is a good example of what I said. Sometimes I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. SMH

    The Oldest Profession

    In the beginning, God made heaven and earth,
    So wonderful to see in their vast array.
    God planted a garden, east, in Eden,
    Then He made a farmer on the 6th day.

    The garden had all that Adam needed,
    And through the garden a river flowed.
    God took the man and put him in Eden
    To work and care for the garden He sowed.

    God made a farmer to work all the land,
    To make his way by the sweat of his brow.
    And so it continues, up to this day,
    The farmer breaks sod with shovel and plow.

    Life on a farm is like going to school,
    You must learn what, when, where, how and why.
    Plan, plow, plant, cultivate, always on time,
    Water and fertilize, or your crops will die.

    You learn about hard work, and patience, too,
    You work most every day through the year.
    And you must wait, crops don’t grow in a day,
    And while you wait, trust God and not fear.

    You learn from God as you wait for His rain,
    And thank Him after, seeing His rainbow.
    And it’s His sun that provides heat and light;
    You see His hand as crops ripen and grow.

    Now you may think that the crop is the goal,
    But all of this is by God’s perfect plan.
    Though the farmer’s goal is raising the crop,
    God’s higher goal is perfecting the man.

    This country was built by working the land,
    By those who broke sod with backbreaking toil.
    Tilling the ground is the start of all things –
    May God bless the farmers who work the soil.

    SD – Here is one to keep an eye on out of Minneapolis. Over the weekend, a white immigrant from Australia was shot by the Minneapolis police in her SW Minneapolis neighborhood. SW Minneapolis is the middle/middle upper class nieghborhood the city relies on to pay abusive property taxes to cover the rest of the city. She had called the police over a domestic she heard in the alley. Apparently she was standing next to the cop car in her pajamas talking to the driver when the passenger cop shot her. Currently liberals in the city are extemely upset at the police and having this happen on the heels of the Philando Castille shooting.

    Here is what I am hearing (rumor for now, but I think this is going to blow up and may be Treehouse worthy when it does). The City of Minneapolis is being very, very quiet about who the cop was. Both cops did not have their personal cameras on, nor was the dashboard camera on. It is rumored that the officer that shot is a Somali immigrant. In the last few years, Minneapolis has put in place in the name of diversity a 4 month crash course for minorities to become cops. Apply, four months later you are walking a beat with full firearm protection. If you are white or even white hispanic….it is a minimum of 2 years of community college to become an officer.
    http://www.startribune.com/mpls-seeks-to-diversify-police-force-boost-numbers/287472671/

    Watch this case closely over the next few days to see if the media buries it if the rumors play out to be true (Somali cop with almost no training in the name of the city choosing political correctness over citizen safety, shoots white immigrant in high end neighborhood). I know many people in this neighborhood…they may see a police officer drive down their street once a year — it is that safe of a neighborhood.

    More degeneracy out of official political parties that hold seats in Sweden. They want legalization of necrophilia, child pornography and incest. Astoundingly, this isn’t even considered a far left group in Sweden. Surely this is what the Bible meant about seared consciences and abominations being seen as positive.

    God protect the minds and hearts of children in Sweden. Amen.

      The British Health Service has effectively diminished Charlie Gard’s chances of recovery by delaying treatment for over a month.

      H8 H8 H8 socialized mandated single payer government health programs.

      The Charlie Gard situation was ruled by a female Nazi-esque death panel doctor and ‘court’ that took absolute authority over the parents of this infant.

      Despicable.

      Oh no Dora… this activist has been on top of this. Getting Dr. Hirano in that hospital is an Angel from God. (Doesn’t hurt that the Pope’s Dr. was there too)

      It’s a big dang deal to finally have literally, an outside physician, whose life-study has been this disease, given full hospital privileges.

    SteynPost #18: The Biggest Issue of our Time

    “Longtime Steyn readers will be familiar with the demographic thesis of his 2006 international bestseller America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It. Almost the entire developed world is mired in deathbed demography from which no functioning society has ever recovered.

    “Mark’s book was a big success a decade ago. But it is a melancholy fact that most people in the western world remain entirely unaware of this remorseless arithmetic or its likely consequences. So this brand new SteynPost is a kind of primer on demographic trends, and where they lead.”

    I need the power of prayer from my CTH community; a close friend has gone missing. She got on an airplane flight and never made it to her home.

    We can not account for her time. A missing person report has been filed. All efforts to track her movements are being made. To make matters worse her cell phone was not working. She borrowed a stranger’s cell phone to make a call and let people know she landed. That was last night, no one has heard from her since. Her apartment is empty. No sign of her.

    Please pray. Thank you all.

      do you know the identity of the “stranger” whose cell phone she used to make that last call when she landed ?

      whom did she make that call to ? they should have that number on their phone…start from there.

      sincerely hope this is resolved quickly and that your friend is ok.

        This happened at Laguardia in NYC; she is pretty street smarts, but anything could happen, possibly trust the wrong person. Needless to say everyone is very worried.

          was her own car there at the airport for her to drive, back to her place ?

          how was she planning to get from airport to her place ?

          can understand how anxious you must be.

          it’s easy to say but try not to worry (too much).

            No. She would have used a yellow cab back to Manhattan. She didn’t do Uber…..her flight landed around 6.30 pm yesterday. We know she was on the flight and made it to NYC.

              sorry to ask so many questions ! your investigators are already doing everything they can, I would assume.

              what’s odd is that she has made no attempts to contact any of you.

              Has a missing persons report been filed?
              Has anyone placed missing persons posters up or has there been a news report?

              Hope that she is all right and I’m praying for her save return.

    Everyone, I have a question. Is there a way within the WordPress site, to get email notifications from blogs/comments? I was able to do that when I made a comment in Chrome, but I was having so many issues using that browser that I switched to Brave. When I use Brave, it works better for me to view/comment/like directly in wordpress than on the actual site.
    TIA

      Yes, click on your avatar on the black bar at the top of the page. Then go to notifications. You can set it there. Then back out and click on comments and check those off. Don’t check the like button unless you want to get a LOT of like emails. If this isn’t clear (and I can see why it might not be) post a ? to me. 🙂

    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

    Megyn Kelly is the poster girl for “Hubris”. Fell in love with herself and believed the whole world did too. She may have millions in her bank account – but her Achilles Heel is her ego, narcissist attitude and mega nasty attitude – and money can’t “sooth” her hurt infrastructure.

    She’s just not that good. Maybe she should try to get a job at the mall or something.
