Friday December 1st – 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 †

    Somebody please correct me if I am wrong. All four of the people charged by Mueller in this Russia “matter” were short-term employees of the Trump team who were FIRED by the Trump team before any of this crap came to light. Right or wrong? Do you think their “pleading guilty” is personal retribution for being let go?

      No. Let’s name names……..Manafort……..his dealings with Russia/Ukraine before Trump.
      Has absolutely nothing to do with Trump , his Administration, or Transition team.

      Flynn……Fired by Obie for telling the truth about Islam. Connected with Trump. Worked for Transition team, fired by Trump for lying to Pence. Worked guilty plea of lying to the FBI……which NOBODY yet knows what the agreement is. It may have to be FOIA’d.
      (My spidey senses tell me, especially after hearing a statement from Flynn today…..that he took this deal to save his son from prosecution, and stop paying a Million dollars in legal fees!!)

      Popodopolus (sp?) is he one of your 4? And who else is the fourth.

    For the six Baltimore police officers that were involved in the Freddy Gray fracas, it looks that their legal situations have been resolved and they are now assigned to new duties within the police department. Here is the article that updates with the new assignments.

    an excerpt from the study:

    II. What it was that he required in order to the acceptableness of their sacrifices and without which no sacrifice would be acceptable (v. 24): Let judgment run down as waters, among you, and righteousness as a mighty stream, that is,
    1. “Let there be a general reformation of manners among you; let religion (God’s judgment) and righteousness have their due influence upon you; let your land be watered with it, and let it bear down all the opposition of vice and profaneness; let it run wide as overflowing waters, and yet run strong as might stream.’
    2. “In particular, let justice be duly administered by magistrates and rulers; let not the current of it be stopped by partiality and bribery, but let it come freely as waters do, in the natural course; let it be pure as running waters, not muddied with corruption or whatever may pervert justice; let it run like a might stream, and not suffer itself to be obstructed, or its course retarded, by the fear of man; let all have free access to it as a common stream, and have benefit by it as trees planted by the rivers of waters.’ The great thing laid to Israel’s charge was turning judgment into wormwood (v. 7); in that matter therefore they must reform, Zec. 7:9. This was what God desired more than sacrifices, Hos. 6:6; 1 Sa. 15:22.

    FBI Concerned About Preventing Damage from Leakers – & Why did it take a Judicial Watch lawsuit to get these?

    From Judicial Watch: ”
    ………“These new FBI documents show the FBI was more concerned about a whistleblower who told the truth about the infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting than the scandalous meeting itself,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “The documents show the FBI worked to make sure no more details of the meeting would be revealed to the American people. No wonder the FBI didn’t turn these documents over until Judicial Watch caught the agency red-handed hiding them. These new documents confirm the urgent need to reopen the Clinton email scandal and criminally investigate the resulting Obama FBI/DOJ sham investigation.” …………

    I just spent most of the day celebrating Christmas / Grandparent’s Day at my four-year-old’s school. It’s a school full of God-loving Christians who clap for veterans, stand for the anthem and say the pledge. I had my family with me; my loving husband, my little boy and beautiful baby girl who will be four months old on Christmas day. I’m grateful for every day I have with them, but it’s ones like today that I thank God a little more for.

    I hope all of you have a wonderful December!

    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.

    And, Lord, if it is your will, we pray that Judge Roy Moore will win his bid for the Senate.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    I think Mick might have found his calling, working Budget for POTUS and the CFPB! I was concerned he was too welcoming of illegals when he was a Congressman.
