Thursday August 24th – 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 †

    My Wednesday laugh came in a survey from the GOP ! It essentially was a laugh-riot as of the questions posed not one have the Republicans in Congress sufficiently supported to bring legislation to the President’s desk ! But they didn’t forget to ask for help and money ! Yes, I’m gonna answer their survey ! Perhaps with one of my own !

    Meanwhile, the Little League World Series is this household’s focus this week ! And, come Saturday, I’m gonna be stocking up on roasted Hatch Chilies !

      Mill, when you answer the GOP survey, where it asks you to check the most important things that need to be done, only check the “other” line and write in “drain the swamp”! The last survey we received was not postage free like all the previous. Yes, I put a stamp on it and mailed. 2018 can’t come soon enough! MAGA!

    Recently, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas signaled the unconstitutionality of Civil Asset Forfeiture, but the case involved could not be heard due to a procedural problem. Here is a new case in Indiana that could soon make its way up to the Supreme Court and end once and for all, the unconstitutionality and the gross injustice of Asset Civil Forfeiture and Policing for Profit.

      A commentary on the latest “violence to achieve peace” sophistry:

      If There Aren’t Two Sides, Why Is There Division?
      Deconstructing the latest inane leftist catchphrase, now picked up by a number of useful-idiot Republicans.

      On the one hand, there are those Americans who recognize the necessity of the Constitution and Bill of Rights as a shield against the tyranny and oppression of a mob of frenzied zealots bent on power and destruction. Those Americans – we’ll call them “grown-ups” – understand what the Founders knew.

      On the other hand, there are those Americans – we’ll call them “angry toddlers” – who are emotional puppets, whose alarming mental weakness predisposes them to manipulation and misdirection dressed up as virtue.

      They have decided for themselves that violence, but only their violence, is acceptable, because their motives are so “moral.” Their “morality” encourages violence to achieve peace, which is akin to encouraging rape to achieve virginity.

        “Remember what the left means when it says there are not two sides to hate and bigotry. Leftists are actually saying it is hate and bigotry to resist them. It is hate and bigotry to wish freedom for yourself and your children, to demand to keep what you earn, to live your life peacefully, and to reject totalitarianism.

        “We must accept and understand that we cannot win this argument and escape the impending punishment of the left’s overwhelming hatred and bigotry by surrendering. If the leftists prevail, they will exact their revenge upon us for our refusal to buckle and submit. We must do all we can now to remain free, while they lie the hardest to conquer us.”

        Continuing the analogy, the biggest problems occur when the “adults” give in to the ‘toddlers”. The toddler has not learned that throwing tantrums is the way to control the adults and get what they want. The end result is that horrible kid in the store.

        These “toddlers” need a firm hand. Instead, the so called “adults” are using them. Paying them to act up. Bringing them in to riot. Telling the police to back down. Defending them on TV.

        Real adults need to stand up and step in to stop this. Stop the “toddlers”. Prosecute them and the so called “adults” that are using them.

    I WANT WEST VIRGINIA TO BECOME A SANCTUARY STATE

    It time for West Virginia to declare itself a sanctuary state for the protection of the unborn. No abortion would be allowed. It only makes sense that if a sanctuary city or state can choose the immigration law to ignore and expect no repercussions, a state can be a sanctuary state for the unborn and ignore the prevention of an abortion as being illegal. This state actually has more solid ground to stand on when logic is applied.
    In the Roe v. Wade in 1973. ruling the Court admitted it lacked the expertise to determine when life begins and to certify the personhood of a fetus. The Court states in the decision: [Texas] argues that the fetus is a ‘person’ within the language and meaning of the Fourteenth Amendment… If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case (or Roe’s case) collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed by the 14th Amendment. The Court clearly states that if personhood is established, then Roe has no case, and the unborn have all rights covered in the Fourteenth Amendment, which include life.
    A vast majority of states have laws that consider it a double-homicide when a pregnant woman is murdered. This means that the unborn child is seen as a murder victim just like the mother. In Ohio an “unborn member of the species homo sapiens, who is or was carried in the womb of another” is killed, it is aggravated murder, murder, voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter, negligent homicide, aggravated vehicular homicide, and vehicular homicide
    The medical field supports the case for fetus personhood. A fetus was discovered to have a tumor on his heart that was serious and life-threatening. The decision was made to operate and remove the tumor while the baby was still in the womb. The operation was a success, and the child is now a healthy boy.
    Time to make the national news.

    This gentleman had a video that was shared on CTH earlier. This link shows that video and also a 2nd video(which I’ve posted below the link) that includes an interview with the lady mentioned.

    http://gatesofvienna.net/2017/08/all-the-worlds-a-stage/
    “So there were at least two batches of buses delivering “demonstrators” to the venue in Charlottesville. The batch that dropped its passengers near 4th Street had evidently co-opted a group of police. The witness doesn’t specify, but I assume they were state cops, and not Charlottesville city police.

    As bad as state cops can be, I’ve never heard of any as bad as what she describes. It makes me wonder if these were actually some of the actors hired — could there have been Antifas, BLM, KKK, neo-Nazis, and cops, all hired for the occasion?

    There are even more ominous explanations for what this woman saw just off 4th Street, but I’m trying not to think about those possibilities too much, because they’re quite alarming.”

            gets in the stew during the primaries.

            On a related note. I think Charlottesville was Mc Awful’s brainstorm.
            From what I’ve read about past behaviors from the guy, he sounds
            like a fixer for the “right” people. I believe that the Vice Mayor was
            a useful idiot by doing all the screaming about the statues and racism.
            There’s more then a fair chance he was paid under the table for doing
            so, since he’s not working these days. The Mayor’s role was to stand
            there and look like a TV newscaster, perfect hair type, along with
            giving orders to stand down from the police.

            If it was all on the Vice Mayor, his past tweets would have shown their
            intentions too much. The Mayor was set in place to look concerned ,
            and to have somebody having a good hair day as their mouth piece.
            Mc Awful used them as shields . Too many people in VA, MD, DC
            have his number after he allowed all the felons to vote for Hillary.
