Tuesday December 12th – 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 †

    If Judge Moore wins, would it be appropriate to send Jones a “Participation Trophy”?

    –Weird seeing into the psychology of the MeToo Witch Hunt. Of all people, Alec Baldwin is making sense. He’s saying that lives and careers are being ruined without a single moment in the courtroom. I agree. I do NOT think that’s good.

    –This Leftwing celebrity blog I’m posting is full of typical Leftwing women and the post and their comments about what Alec Baldwin says are telling. They call this MeToo witch hunt a “purge” and say it’s about time men felt fear. They say he just fears the purge because he’s probably guilty too.

    –So if you aren’t pro-purge, you’re a witch.

    –They’re really power tripping and are in full blood lust now. Hyena packs……literally no judge, jury, evidence, court or idea that punishment must fit crime. Joke grope treated same as hardcore rape. In fact, Bill Clinton got away with rape, while Franken-groper will (supposedly) lose office. So your joke grope might actually get you in deeper trouble than rape.

    –This is NUTS

    –Yet a year ago, Bill the Actual Rapist and Hillary his ennabler led their party. When they had a chance to reject a real rapist, they did not. That site has 3 articles about Trump’s phony accusers who are mad that he asked for their telephone number and other non-issues.

    –So the “purge” is still hypocritical as well.

      smart-alec baldwin lashes out a LOT…at just about everybody on the planet.

      including his own daughter, whom he referred to as a “thoughtless little pig”, a few years back.

      violent tendencies, too…ask Kim.

      all he does is RANT & RAVE.

      making it hard to take him seriously, even if he might have a point.


      • shallbe4 says:

        Baldwin as a man does have a point. A few years ago women had to go through hell to prove they were raped. Now its men. But in the end women will suffer because hiring victims is not something most bosses want to deal with. As a woman who came of age in the 60’s and who wanted a career in NYC I had to learn to deal with all manners of lunacy. In those days when you graduated you had no desire to live in your parent’s basement. Therefore, you took responsibility for your own future.

    “George Soros Funded Group Readying Trump’s Sexual Harassment Accusers To Push For Congressional Investigation”


    FTA:….”A far-left activist group funded by George Soros is readying the women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct to demand a congressional investigation. The women had made their accusations just before the November 2016 election”

    …….”The group behind this obvious new attempt to force Trump out of the White House, Brave New Films, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that claims to be “non-partisan” ­ a claim that becomes laughable upon a review of their donors and partners which include left-wing hit groups like Media Matters For America and Democracy For America…..”

    …..”In the wake of Trump’s election win, Soros gave $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations, as he called for immediate action against Trump. “We must do something to push back against what’s happening here,” Soros said in November, as he warned of the “dark forces that have been awakened” by Trump’s win…….”


  13. Dear Treepers,

    …this is a copy/paste from the prayer request page, fyi…

    Dear Prayer Warriors, sorry I’m not taking the time to read through what else is going on with so many of you as I’m at the hospital with my son Josiah following his Cardiology visit. I just wanted to thank you for your prayers! Today went very well & he won’t need to come back for a year & gets to wait 2 years for another Echocardiogram (he had one today & most things are stable).

    If you want further details about this visit, or Josiah &/or the family I’ve written a more detailed journal entry about today’s visit here:


    May the Lord continue to provide for Each of Your Needs, Heal any Hurting Hearts, & Provide His Peace that Passes Understanding to all that turmoil within & without.

    Blessings in Christ!

    Drudge is crazy. He’s got the headline “Brokeback Election” with Roy Moore on a horse.
    –Guess the theory that Drudge is gay and hates everyone opposed to gay marriage just got more confirmation.

    Drudge now has a link to Roy Moore thinking homosexuality should “possibly” still be illegal.
    — Out Magazine tried to list Drudge as one of their power-gays, but Drudge didn’t agree to the honor. He said his site is not anti-gay, but he told Out magazine that it was “false that he loved sex with men.” He seems to deny being gay.
    — It’s hard to say what’s going on. He called Judge Moore “Judge Whore,” made called it a “Brokeback Election” today with a picture of Moore riding his horse to the polls, and now he’s linking to Moore’s anti-gay stance.
    –Drudge never once linked to all the revelations that that Moore accusers were lying and fabricating that yearbook entry.


    But here’s the story that he gave a man who he lived with 11 years a $700,000 house.
    Drudge really is a man of mystery. But he hates Roy Moore for some reason.


  19. Mia C says:

    –I haven’t even researched Roy Moore one way or another.
    –All I know is we need him for the votes on the MAGA agenda and I think he’ll be reliable on that if Steve Bannon supports him.
    –I think the allegations are ridiculous. Some aren’t crimes. All were 40 years ago. And even the worst allegation against him is that a teen “thought” he was going to rape her, but didn’t get raped or even close to it…….and then she had him as her divorce judge and later doctored a yearbook by her own admission.
    –If he’s backwards on some non-issues that aren’t even on the table, I couldn’t care less. We need every vote we can get in the Senate and that’s what’s good for America.

    I heard something funny today.
    –The radio show host (who’s had some issues w/race himself) Anthony Cumia said Roy Moore argues we should return to just the Bill of Rights, and no more amendments that came after.
    –The radio show host laughed “the anti-slavery amendment, women voting, etc are all after the first 10!”
    –If that’s true, sure, Moore is backwards as hell. And literally I wouldn’t be free if we went back to just first ten amendments. But let’s be honest, none of these things are actually real issues now. We’re not literally going to undo the more recent amendments.
    –SO…….Cumia is pretty rightwing and he said it best. “We need his vote, that’s what it comes down to.”

    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.

    Everyone lost tonight. The obvious, Roy Moore. Estab R’s lost big too as many of us know the hit on Moore was an Estab R hit and with it widening the divide between Estab R supporters and grassroots/outsider/libertarian-leaning R supporters. Of course, the MSM is going to play this up as the greatest defeat ever and how this is an indication of where the country is going in 2018.While I don’t doubt that’s the case, I have a hard time digesting it’s for the love of D’s so much as it will be Estab R’s undermining all their candidates in hopes of setting the stage to impeach POTUS. They hate him that much. There’s no telling the media AND Estab R’s are going to go all out on Bannon. However, he sets good expectations at his speeches and reminds everyone there will be wins and losses along the way to taking back the country. It won’t be quick, it won’t be easy, nothing is guaranteed and we have to keep getting up to fight the good fight every day.

    Thankfully, POTUS was gracious in his Tweet tonight in congratulating Doug Jones and set a good tone to suck it up, move on and work with what you have. I’m down with that.

    Dr. Dean Lorich, an orthopedic surgeon who volunteered in Haiti and exposed Clinton Foundation corruption and malpractice on the island, has been found dead in New York. He was 54.

    Dr. Lorich was found by his 11-year-old daughter on the bathroom floor of his tony Upper East Side apartment with a knife in his chest at around 1pm on Monday.


    Here’s the doctor on Charlie Rose’s old show:

    Your News Wire is a questionable source to some but the story appears to be true. Google it. Other sources:



    This is the same doctor. He dared to publicly publicize the critical situation in Haiti, so now he is dead from a “self inflicted” stab woun
