Saturday August 26th – 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 †

    The Only Way

    The world is broken and has gone astray;
    Safety and peace are now war and dismay.
    Islam makes jihad against infidels,
    Warring with all from their self imposed hell.

    Race against race, color against color;
    Any excuse to hate each other.
    Men against women, and rich against poor;
    All hold grudges, want to even the score.

    “Identity Politics”, it’s so named,
    With all looking for another to blame.
    The truth is passé, now lies fill the air;
    You say “Love your neighbor”, but no one cares.

    Many call good evil, and evil good,
    And God’s Holy Word is not understood.
    Wise in their own eyes, clever in their sight;
    Their hearts are darkness, removed from the light.

    Respect for the Lord has gone from this land;
    No one sees good in the work of His hands.
    Men live in lies; only seek to deceive,
    And ridicule those of us that believe.

    Many in this world are now asking why,
    “Must we live like this, then, only to die?
    Must we live in fear, hearing lies, having doubts?
    Is there no escape? Is there no way out?”

    There is a way, and it’s the only way
    To perfect peace and joy, day after day.
    God knows we live in this world full of sin,
    That causes His chosen to turn to Him.

    In God’s Son, there’s no gentile or Jew,
    In Jesus, we’re one; God’s children, born new.
    No colors, woman or man, slave or free,
    United in Christ by His Holy Decree.

    It’s only through Christ, we come to God
    To learn His Truth, with wonder and awe,
    To change our lives to be more like Him,
    And be filled with His Spirit, full to the brim.

      What I love about this early video is watching the reactions of Susanna, Guy’s wife and muse, playing to the camera and obviously enjoying the moment. While Susanna was definitely Guy’s life mate, someone he celebrated in his songs, she was also the life mate of the equally famous songwriter Townes Van Zant . . . who was also a lifelong personal friend of Guy’s. It was complicated.

    Irish Blessing

    May your hope be…
    As determined as the river racing by,
    As soft as the cry of the mourning dove,
    As sweet and subtle as a lover’s sigh,…
    As resolute as the sun rising each day,
    As certain as the return each year of spring.
    May it break through the darkling clouds
    And confirm you against every evil thing.
    May Jesus and Mary and Patrick and Brigid
    Strengthen your faith and hope and love,
    And may God bless you
    Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    In Furious Attack, Poland Slams “Arrogant” Macron, Says “You Won’t Rule Europe”
    Even as recent European outcast Poland is demanding World War II reparations from Germany, causing a rift between Warsaw and Berlin, it has engaged in another diplomatic feud, this time with French president Macron, who as we learned overnight spends $10,000 each month on make up.

    Separately, expanding the recent Polish demands that Germany pay for World War II reparations, Szydlo asked that Germany “take responsibility” for World War Two, as Poland is still recovering from the damage done by Nazi occupation, which left millions dead and buildings damaged on their soil.

    late yesterday afternoon, I was sitting outside in between downpours, gazing out at the swollen, crested lake behind the house here, noticing how high the water rose in just a few hours.

    I saw what I thought was a bunch of dead leaves floating swiftly by the water’s edge there.

    but there was no current and the “leaves” were creating a noticeable wake behind them.

    then I suddenly realized…that’s an ALLIGATOR.

    so I sloshed thru the yard down to the 6′ chain link fence to try to see it better…scanning the water there, about to give up, thinking it had moved on…but…

    there it was…lurking with its head and snout partially emerged out of the water, facing the fence…

    WATCHING ME.

    took my breath away…just lurking there, silently, in stealth, staring at me, not blinking either.

    only about maybe 10 feet away, right at the water’s edge, just below the bank.

          In June AG Sessions stop all future payments from being made to non-government groups from the DOJ ‘donations’ slush-fund. On July 28th AG Sessions requested an investigation of non-government groups that have been paid from that slush-fund, over the past 10 years.

          I am personally convinced that when that investigation is complete, we will discover that payments were made from the DOJ to BlackLivesMatter activists and activist groups. I also think that this audit by AG Sessions of the DOJ slush fund will lead to another audit of the CRS department within the DOJ.

          I believe in following the money and I am definitely in agreement AF. We just need to figure out who passed on the money and who did the receiving.

      For two years, I blamed the cats for the disappearance of the gerbil. And then one winter day, I stuck my foot into my rubber overshoe and the fate of the gerbil was instantly revealed.

      On that day, a happy dance was performed on the gerbil’s body by the household cats.. (I tried to move the body of the gerbil, really, I did) 0)

      Thank you oldiadguy. I have watched several of these videos. The “Zapruder” film makes the point that a maroon van was in place for a long time at the end of the alley, deliberately blocking the exit from the street where Heyer was killed and many people were injured. It also brings up the point that the instigators of this incident have histories that make them appear to be agents provocateurs.

      Also I watched a couple of videos from Charles Patrick, who interviewed an eyewitness. The eyewitness had been in a restaurant and claimed that at least 6 charter busses pulled up, and then someone went and banged on the restaurant entrance, at which point at least two patrons walked out. The eyewitness assumed that the charter busses were tourists, but that wasn’t the case. She said suddenly hordes of people in KKK and BLM t-shirts poured out of the busses (KKK and BLM in the same busses!), armed with helmets, knee and elbow pads, 20-oz Sprite bottles filled with concrete, condoms filled with stinky stuff that was probably feces, and came out yelling, kicking, screaming and assaulting people like herself who happened to be in their path. The eyewitness said that a man near her was was hit by one of those bottles, and it bent his arm inwards (probably broken), and could have killed the young child near her.

      She also said that the “police” who appeared would not let the innocent bystanders out, including the small children they had with them, and blocked them in where the bystanders would get hurt. There may have been fake police as well as fake BLM and fake KKK.

Someone told me on Friday (yesterday) that this “rally” was cancelled, but then the news came through that it is still on, but police removed cars, installed metal detectors, are not allowing anyone to bring in “drinks” and have taken other precautions to protect themselves and others. The campus area of Knoxville where this “rally” has been scheduled, backs up to a Children’s Hospital and a Ronald McDonald House for families with critically ill children.

      These “events” are expensive and have already resulted in injuries and deaths. I hope that Knoxville escapes unscathed. Nobody needs this (except maybe some political drama queens)

      As I read about Charlottesville, I’m surprised at how little identification is given to the victims.

          From the comments section, a note about the timeline of the crash of the helicopter doing surveillance, hours after the killing of Heyer:
          “The helicopter crashed at 5 p.m. in a wooded area, some miles away from the site of the demonstration, earlier in the afternoon. The killer attack in a car happened around 1:45 p.m.

          “It appears, from some of the news reports, that the helicopter, which took off at 4 p.m. was assigned to surveillance of the protest. That is a bit surprising since I would have expected that the crowd would have been dispersed much earlier, after the car attack at 1:45 p.m.

            wondering, I previously came across information that indicated that the troopers were part of the Governor’s protection fleet and at the time they crashed, they were enroute to provide air support for Governor Terry McAuliffe’s motorcade. I have not yet returned to verify where I found the information or who uttered the information, but if the helicopter took off at 4:00 p.m., it will be interesting to see if the where-abouts of Governor McAuliffe and his entourage between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. can be confirmed. If that information can be located, then it would lead me to question the “helicopter was surveying riots’ narrative.

            Virginia Secretary of Public Safety Brian Moran was sitting in the Charlottesville “Command Center and Moran received the direct order over the phone from Gov. McAuliffe at 11:22 a.m. to shut the Emancipation Park rally down. McAuliffe “made the decision … to shut it down” in that phone call, Moran told Richmond talk radio host Jeff Katz on Monday, August 14. [breitbart]

            The permit that was held by Jason Kessler, the permit that he had received late in the preceding day, was for a rally to begin at 12:00 on August 12, 2017. Little than 24 after a Federal Court had ordered the permit to allow Kessler’s rally & speakers to begin at noon, and thirty eight minutes before the rally was scheduled to begin, The Governor of the State of Virginia ordered it ‘shut down’.

            And that ladies and gentlemen is ground zero. Up until this point, there was violence, but how the riots were handled by State & City government officials from 11:22 am onward, is of great interest.

Steven Flaherty, Virginia State Police Superintendent. “Lieutenant Cullen was a highly-respected professional aviator and Trooper-Pilot Bates was a welcome addition to the Aviation Unit, after a distinguished assignment as a special agent with our Bureau of Criminal Investigation…”

          “Trooper One was on its way to protect the governor again as a motorcade carried him from state police headquarters near Interstate 64 to the news conference downtown.

          “The National Transportation Safety Board said Monday that the Bell 407 helicopter crashed without a call of distress at 4:44 p.m., just two minutes after breaking away from its monitoring flights to support the motorcade.

          “The helicopter was flying at 34 mph at 2,300 feet when it was last recorded on radar. The helicopter was traveling at a 45-degree angle when it descended into the trees and caught fire after the crash. Part of the helicopter tail lodged in a tree and the rest of the wreckage came to rest about 100 yards away.

          “The cause of the crash isn’t clear, but state police have said there was no evidence of foul play. The NTSB investigation won’t be complete for 12 to 18 months, but the federal agency expects to issue a preliminary report on its findings in two to three weeks.

          “It was the first fatal helicopter crash in state police history, although two troopers were killed in the crash of a fixed-wing aircraft in Gloucester County in 1950.”

            Here’s a bit more detail about the “wooded area” near a golf course where the helicopter crashed, apparently heading back to Gov. McAuliffe’s motorcade from Charlottesville?

            “The Bell 407 helicopter they were piloting was being used to assist public safety efforts for Saturday’s Unite the Right rally, which found thousands of alt-right demonstrators and counter-protesters clashing on Market Street and around the Downtown Mall in Charlottesville. State, city police and Albemarle County police, as well as the National Guard, monitored the protests.

            “Neighbors in the Old Farm Road area flocked near the crash site in its immediate aftermath, with many saying they had heard the helicopter hovering close to nearby homes before pulling into the wooded area. State police joined county police and fire units who were the first responders to the scene.”

      The young man was beaten unconscious by the gang, who then subjected his partner to multiple rapes in front of him. Both were also robbed.

      The Polish consulate in Milan say they are providing every assistance to the couple, who were both hospitalised following their ordeal.

    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
