Friday January 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 †

    Very thankful to our President, Admiral Mike Rogers, and the many white hats who serve our country. I may be ate to the party saying this: if you haven’t seen it, go see Darkest Hour with Gary Oldman. Heck I’m thinking of taking my kids, a great lesson on history there. Great movie. My favorite scene was Churchill in the subway with the common people. That movie put some things in perspective in my family in particular, as my father in law was British Merchant Navy (teenager during WW2 years). Amazingly but true stories he told. Love the British people and the lessons we learned from from Churchill’s leadership. You’ll see some parallels in America 2017. America is a blessed nation. God bless President Trump and God Bless our United States of America.

      Matthew 6:4
      “That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.”

      King James Version (KJV)
      Matthew 6:4 Context

      1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven. 2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: 4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly. 5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. 7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

  21. Seth Rich: remember him? Perhaps this should go with the DOJ/Dossier Scandal, but here it is:

    ” (Donna) Brazile says she had a “spook,” with connections to the intelligence community, who told her after the killing that she needed protection for herself, including cameras, alarms and backup power at her house, and that she heeded his advice.

    Brazile was so concerned with Rich’s death that she used her brief, only phone call from Hillary Clinton after the election loss to bring him up. She asked Clinton to use some of the millions of dollars the campaign had in order to set up a reward fund to find his murderer. But Hillary said she “really had to go.”

    Daniel John Sobieski on American Thinker has this today:

    “The Russians did not provide WikiLeaks with any purloined emails or other documents, according to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. As Fox News reported on Assange’s interview with Sean Hannity:

    Wiki[L]eaks founder Julian Assange denied Thursday that hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta were stolen and passed to his organization by Russian state actors.

    “Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange told []The Sean Hannity Show [italics added –ed.].[]

    “So in other words, let me be clear,” Hannity asked, “Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC?”

    “That’s correct,” Assange responded.

    Seth Rich, being a DNC I.T. staffer, if he did not provide the documents and emails to WikiLeaks himself, might have been in a position to know who did and how. We do know that the DNC denied the FBI access to the server that was allegedly hacked by the Russians. Now we have a possible link among Seth Rich, his death, and a dossier paid for in part by the DNC.”

      Donna Brazile……yes, I’ve read her book……had bogus spooks doing a lot of things. IMO she was dumb-enough to trust that the Hilldabeast wouldn’t let her down, and in Donna’s book, she admitted that she knew basically zip on cybersecurity, and therefore hired “recommended” help. Donna is/was on the DNC Board (before taking over to Debbie Washherhair) Donna took a couple of other DNC board members with her when “invited” to the FBI, where they were presented with a story about “muh Russians.”

      In Donna’s defense (blek! but to be fair) if she wasn’t in the loop at the time, by all rights, she SHOULD have been able to trust those (FBI/DOJ/authorities) But, we all know they’re dirty up-top.

      Somebody, or many somebodies, put the FEAR in Donna.

    Facebook Blocks Crowdfunding Site for ‘Roe v. Wade’ Movie


    Actor and producer Nick Loeb is joining with pro-life leaders in the production of Roe v. Wade, described as “the first movie ever about the true story” of the controversial Supreme Court case that created a right to abortion though no such right ever existed in the Constitution.

    Pro-life leader Dr. Alveda King, who heads Civil Rights for the Unborn, a division of Priests for Life, is serving as an executive producer of the movie.

    Academy Award-winning actor Jon Voight is attached to play a Supreme Court Justice in the film, says the fundraising site.

    “No one’s ever done this movie before,” Loeb told Breitbart News in an interview.

    “Planned Parenthood is a major theme throughout our film,” he said. “The movie opens up with the founder of Planned Parenthood Margaret Sanger giving a speech at a KKK rally, talking about how we should reduce the black population in America.”

        Here’s how I found this. Their are 2 transcripts from US V. Prevezon case out there.

        William Browder’s interview with Mark Cymrot of Baker Hotsteler on April 15, 2015
        file name is: Browder-Deposition-April-15-2015.pdf
        (this document is neither signed, nor notorized) Browder is questioned about a journalist named Oleg Lurie, who met Magnitsky in prison. Us attorney is represented by Paul Monteleoni.

        At the place where I found the link to the Browder file, was another link to the deposition of Oleg Lurie. This file is named Oleg-Lurie_deposition.pdf It’s also unsigned. It has a “filed date” 3/2017. He was deposed on October 18, 2015. He is interviewed by Mr. Levine of Baker Hostetler, and Ms. Graham of the US Attorneys Office. He is asked about a film titled “Sherlock Holmes investigates Magnitsky’s Death, Full Stop BB” at pg145 line 15. With a little digging, I found this at youtube.

        There is a second video that plays immediately after this that is extremely interesting as well. (only about half thru it.) Their are also links to films from the “Russian Untouchables” website. This is William Browder’s website, ad he is grilled about this site in his deposition.

            BigMamaTEA, I’m looking forward to hearing what you’re up to. The number of tentacles on this monster is astounding.
            This has been some pretty scary stuff to dig into, Many people who tried to bring this to light are no longer with us. Then I realized that Browder was deposed in the Fall of 2015. That’s an entire year before the election and all of it’s shenanigans. In other words, the watchers were watching the watchers, and gave them all of the rope that they needed. As the black hats were trying to setup the Trump Campaign, the white hats were setting their snares. I’m confident that the entire story will eventually make it out, but it must be peeled back in layers for comprehension.
            I am in awe of the courageous individuals who undertook such risk to their own safety to expose this. Mark Cymrot is an Adm. Rogers. True heroes.

            I’m proud to be able to help in what little way that I can. cheers.

    A followup on the drone attack on the Russian airbase in Syria.

    This story isn’t going away. I’ve been researching terrorist drones used in the ME and the drones used in the attack on the Russian airbase just don’t fit the pattern, either in aircraft design or munitions used. One of the nagging feelings I had is that the persons who built them intentionally made them look primitive from the exterior to hide the fact the drones were really high tech. My suspicion is the drones were to drop their bombs and then crash into the Mediterranean, never to be seen again.

    Putin has now weighed in on the topic.

    “Putin went so far as to say the drones and explosives were purposefully made to appear primitive and homemade in order to conceal the advanced technology they were outfitted with. On Thursday he said, “As for these attacks, they were undoubtedly prepared well. We know when and where these unmanned vehicles were handed over [to the attackers], and how many of them there were. These aerial vehicles were disguised – I would like to stress that – as homemade. But it is obvious that some high-tech equipment was used.”

    The Daily Mail has an article with additional photos.

    Also, look how these “primitive” drones had bomb racks to carry multiple anti-personal bombs.

    It would appear that someone was intending to kill Russian troops. Then there is this statement by former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell, that is included in above linked article.

    The CIA’s Morell said the following in a televised Charlie Rose interview at that time:

    ” Morell: We need to make the Iranians pay the price in Syria; we need to make the Russians pay the price.

    Rose: We make them pay the price by killing Russians and killing Iranians?

    Morell: Yes. Covertly. You don’t tell the world about it. You don’t stand at the Pentagon and say we did this. But you make sure they know it in Moscow and Tehran.”

    It would appear that someone within the Deep State carried out that threat.

    An article describing how the Deep State works.

    Pray for peace.

    Take care and stay safe

        I will keep on eye on it as I believe that the Deep State is using the domestic issues as a diversion. With everyone watching the FBI/DOJ debacle, domestic spying, Uranium 1, Trump’s comments, etc, they can start a nice little war that will permanently push the various domestic out of the public’s consciousness.

        If the war goes badly and/or brings about an economic collapse, Trump and his deplorables will be the scapegoats. A win – win for the military/intelligence/ industrial complex.

    Go see “Darkest Hour” and see what Dunkirk left out. But more important, see the incredible story of Churchill carrying the weight of Western Civilization on his shoulders while America ignored Hitler for a year and a half.

    When I was in church last Sunday, a man asked for prayers for a relative who was fighting prostate cancer.
    The patient didn’t do so well after surgery. There is a drug the doctors think might help him, but the cost is extremely high, so the insurance company does not want to pay.
    The man is too young for a death panel.
    How can anyone say we have had “health care reform”? The man has insurance, the drug costs 8,000 per month (!).
    How can a drug cost 8 grand a month, after “reform”?
    What good is universal ‘coverage’, if they don’t have to cover your treatment?

    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.
