Wednesday September 13th – 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€

        nimrodman, I suspect it relates back to a recent vid. he made – believe he creates them (sometimes more than a few) on a daily basis. I gave up on trying to keep up w/him. I already subscribe to 5 different very active youtube channel. Fortunately, most of them are brief vids. Sputnick is a Russian owned company:

        Sputnik News Agency
        Sputnik is a news agency, news websites and radio broadcast service established by the Russian government-controlled news agency Rossiya Segodnya. Headquartered in Moscow, Sputnik has regional editorial offices in Washington, Cairo, Beijing, London and Edinburgh; in Sputnik’s Washington D.C.More at Wikipedia

          Thanks for your explanation, Janie, appreciate you taking the time.

          I can’t follow these guys who drone on and on. If he’s got a point he should state it right up front and then explain why and what it means. I much prefer print, where the eye can scan for important parts, digest enough of it, and move on.

      Imo…Lee Stranahan, himself, is a “red alert.” He speaks in an antagonistic manner toward CTH and Sundance, was/is a Cruz bot, and anti-Trump.

      Crux of the biscuit: The Muh Russia investigation can go on indefinitely. The Independent Counsel can drag this out for years because all it takes is one liar to make a claim to the IC and then leak that claim to the press. And for the record Stranahan is not a Cruzbot and is not anti-Trump. It does no good to disparage people on our own side; like this guy who has the cojones to stand out in front of the JE Hoover Building and call out an organization that let Mrs. Bill Clinton off the hook last year.

    Today’s Verse: Titus 2:13-14
    Wednesday, September 13, 2017

    We wait for the blessed hope โ€” the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
    โ€” Titus 2:13-14
    Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

    We haven’t arrived at our destination (cf. Philipppians 3). We are in waiting! Jesus, who offered his own life for our redemption, will gloriously return to take us home. During our time of waiting, let’s be eager to do what is right, good, and holy.

    My Prayer…

    Father, make me holy. Holy Spirit, make me eager. Jesus, make me glorious. Do these things for your praise and for the blessing of those who need to know you better. Please forgive me for the times I have settled for mediocrity and stir me to a holy passion to belong to you. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

    Hill, who co-hosts the 6 p.m. edition of SportsCenter, started off by trashing Kid Rock and calls him a racist.
    He loves black people so much that he pandered to racists by using a flag that unquestionably stands for dehumanizing black people.
    โ€” Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) September 11, 2017
    And then the ESPN host went on a twitter rampage against Donald Trump โ€“ calling him and his supporters a white supremacist.
    And while you can certainly criticize black ppl for supporting Dems, the other side has done nothing but endorse/promote white supremacy

    In response to her disgusting string of racist tweets ESPN gave her a slap on the wrist.
    ESPN โ€œaddressedโ€ this with Jemele and she recognizes her actions were inappropriate.

    How many drug prescriptions do US doctors write per year?

    How many drug scripts do doctors write per year?

    by Jon Rappoport

    Medical News Today reports that, in 2011, there was a modest uptick in the number of prescriptions written in the US.

    The increase brought the total to: 4.02 billion.

    Yes, in 2011, doctors wrote 4.02 billion prescriptions for drugs in America.

    That’s an average of roughly 13 prescriptions for each man, woman, and child.

    That’s about one new prescription every month for every American. (Update: the Kaiser Family Foundation reports that in 2016, 4,065,479,343 drug prescriptions were written by US doctors—an increase of 65 million.)

    The Medical News Today article concluded, “…the industry should be heartened by the growth of the number of prescriptions and spending.” Yes, I’m sure the drug industry is popping champagne corks.

      I recently read a book where the author makes the case that changes to the laws having to do with how we fund research, enabled the rise of Big Pharma and also the marketing of dangerous drugs.
      These changes also coincide with the advent of the global agenda.
      I’m working on tying those same changes to the Global Warming scam, and to the obesity epidemic, but it’s tough going.

    From WiseGEEK:

    Is Hide-And-Seek a Competitive Sport?
    Each year, teams from around the world take part in the Nascondino World
    Championship, a giant hide-and-seek game.

    Earlier this month, 80 teams from around the globe participated in the ultimate game of hide-and-seek, officially known as the Nascondino World Championship. Now in its eighth year, the three-day event concluded on 10 September 2017. For the third time, the event took place near the abandoned resort town of Consonno, in the foothills of the Alps in northern Italy. In the game, players are given 60 seconds to find hiding places, and then must elude a team of seekers and make their way back to home base, which is marked by a large air mattress. This year, the team that took home the Golden Fig Leaf (named after the biblical symbol of hiding) was Mucche Arrosto of Bergamo, Italy.
    Ready or not, here they come!

    โ—† In the early 1960s, Count Mario Bagno built Consonno, turning a small farming community into a garish collection of eclectic buildings and creating what he called โ€œthe Las Vegas of Italy.โ€

    โ—† In 1976, a landslide swept through the area, damaging buildings and access roads. Consonno never recovered, and was later abandoned.

    โ—† โ€œThe beauty of the event is that adults get to become children again for the weekend,โ€ says event organizer Giorgio Moratti. The Nascondino World Championship also features a food and music festival besides the giant game of hide-and-seek.

    We survived a day without power. My cabin is also in an area where there is no cell service. I found out that the wireless phones are useless without power, but the land line still works fine, if you have the old fashioned, everyday phone. Which we took care of, right away.
    Being a creature of habit, this level of disruption was pretty uncomfortable, but I recognize that we were really fortunate.

    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.

    And, Lord, we pray for help for the people of Texas and Louisiana who are caught in the flooding. And, now we add everyone in the path of Irma to our prayer for safety.
