Tuesday January 30th – 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 †

    I’ve been s treeper since shortly after PDJT rode down the escalator.
    Discovered this site by (divine?) accident.
    For the past couple of months, when I access cth, my browser (ucmini, android, cell phone) gives me a msg : ‘This is an untrusted site with no security’ Then two options : ‘cancel’ or ‘continue’
    I, of course, choose to ‘continue’
    Just find it strange that it only recently became ‘untrusted’ on my browser

    Time to flush the State and Defense Departments of ANYBODY who coddles and gives excuses for the Erdogan regime in Turkey. A member of Erdogan’s political party just stated that Turkey’s war against the Kurds is a “jihad.”

    I’ve been warning people about Erdogan and how dangerous he really since well before the election. I’ve also been warning people about how the Tillerson’s State Department Mattis’ Defense Department have been coddling this man. Some have listened, while others have mocked me and called me a “Cruzbot” or an “Israel-Firster,” especially since McMaster is also one of Erdogan’s not-so-in-the-closet supporters within this administration.

    No more excuses, people. One of our NATO allies and one of the most powerful countries on the PLANET (definitely more powerful than Iran, and just one tier below countries like the US, Russia, China, and the EU) has gone “Allahu Akbar” on us. If we don’t address this NOW, we could be in for something catastrophic.

    I don’t like the way this is going and haven’t for a couple of years. Ppl purchasing stuff on line = people loosing employment. Troubling.
    Even tho I probably made only one or two small purchases a year on Amazon I stopped buying from them altogether about 3 years ago. It just didn’t feel right to me.

      End of an era. In the very early days, we used to rent the videos and the player. Our local video store rented players. It was a Friday night treat for us and the kids.

      I saw treepers discussing this article earlier so went to try and find the IG Report mentioned in an NR article someone posted. I had no luck finding it BUT came across this ProPublica piece written back in 2015 about Blumenthal and Shearer, btw the title is a tell –
      “Private Emails Reveal Ex-Clinton Aide’s Secret Spy Network” – https://www.propublica.org/article/private-emails-reveal-ex-clinton-aides-secret-spy-network

      It’s a good piece and goes into more depth on the ‘Clinton Secret Spy Network’ than the NR article does.

      And someone may have already suggested this, but I’m thinking this is the ‘new’ stuff Warner is suggesting Sen Intel will be investigating.

      Why does this Blumenthal, Shearer and Drumheller ‘Clinton Secret Spy’ team set up feel so familiar? hhhhmmmmm…. Blumenthal is a former journalist. Drumheller is “a former chief of the CIA’s clandestine service in Europe” and Shearer is “a longtime Clinton family operative—his brother was an ambassador under Bill Clinton and his now-deceased sister was married to Clinton State Department official Strobe Talbott…”

      Fusion GPS chumps are former journalists who partnered with Orbis Business Intelligence, Christopher Steele, who headed MI6s Russia Desk until retirement.

      It’s an identical ‘Secret Spy Network’ set up – former corporate media journalists + former intel leaders = covert intelligence operations paid for by the highest bidder (public and private) In essence when you boil it all down to the bare bones these teams provide ‘hit jobs’ for a wide array of reasons.

      I wonder how many more are out there? We know of two – Fusion and now Blumenthal/Shearer/Drumheller….hhhhmmmmm

        And this thought just occurred to me – what if, big if, but what if all of these intel ‘desk’ operatives never really retired, but rather set up these bogus intel fronts while teaming up with corporate journalists who are then assigned to a particular region of the world. What if there is a global web of such entities purposely designed to protect their paymasters while destroying targets who threaten their global agenda?

        Just thinking out loud here, but What If???

    Professor Calls out ‘White Supremacy’ in Yoga

    A Michigan State University professor has claimed white people who practice yoga contribute to “white supremacy” and the “yoga industrial complex.”

    Religious Studies Professor Shreena Gandhi claimed in a co-authored article that “yoga practice in the United States is intimately linked to some of the larger forces of white supremacy,” adding the practice is “tied up with colonialism.”

    The article went on to argue that the “modern day trend of cultural appropriation of yoga is a continuation of white supremacy and colonialism, maintaining the pattern of white people consuming the stuff of culture that is convenient and portable, while ignoring the well-being and liberation of Indian people,” and concluded, “We must ask, in what ways are we complicit in a system that harms People of Color, queer and trans people, poor people, people with disabilities, and immigrants?”

    Document shows police ID’d 2nd ‘person of interest’ in days after Las Vegas shooting
    January 30, 2018 – 10:47 am

    A judge on Tuesday unsealed nearly 300 pages of search warrant records, including one document that publicly identified for the first time an additional “person of interest” in the Oct. 1 massacre on the Las Vegas Strip.

    “Until the investigation can rule otherwise, Marilou Danley and Douglas Haig have become persons of interest who may have conspired with Stephen Paddock to commit Murder with a Deadly Weapon,” according to the Metropolitan Police Department document, which was prepared in October.

  15. More good news: Dem National Committee CEO resigns after less than a year, which shows that something very wrong is happening there. One source says there is “chaos” there, despite the wins in some off-year races.

    Fund-raising is down, debt is up for the Dems:


    Caveat: Conservatives must never become complacent, despite this good news. The Captain Ahabs of the Dems will sail and stalk us for as long as possible, and will relentlessly use all means – amoral, immoral, and even moral, if necessary 😉 – to achieve their Socialist/Communist agenda.

    I think that Gosar is right on.
    H3LL the countries that Illegals come from don’t tolerate Non-Citizens acting the way DACA & Illegals do. If any of us were to protest in one of the countries Illegals/DACAers come from we’d be lucky just to get our A$$ slammed into a jail cell. Most countries would just shoot us & get it over with.

    On January 30, 1969
    The Beatles performed their last live public performance 49 years ago today at the London Apple Offices at 3 Savile Row. It was a cold lunchtime when they stepped on to their rooftop for what would turn out to be the closing part of the Let It Be film. The streets quickly filled up 5 floors below when they started playing. It was obvious to everybody on the ground who was performing, even though they could not see the musicians. They could only hear them. None of the songs had ever been heard before but that certainly did not matter. They knew what was happening was history. The Beatles played for 42 minutes and here’s one of those Gems

      Yeah, when the event occurred I posted comments advising of a high degree of bumblef*ckery among State employees. This latest reporting is entirely consistent with my prior comments.

      No way should State employees have their fingers on military alerts. The alert should be issued by the Military, with a direct tie-in to the State Civil Defense warning system (sirens, TV alert, phone push-texts, etc).

      State employees should not occupy a go-between function, Military should push the button that activates a military alert. State Civil Defense can continue to govern weather and tsunami alerts, but they shouldn’t have a hand in incoming-missle alerts.

    In 1945, on January 30th, the ship “Wilhelm Gustloff” sank in the Baltic Sea. Over 9,000 war refugees, Germans, perished, making it the greatest loss of life in a maritime disaster.

      War misery. I don’t want a war with Russia or any other country, even if certain politicians need a distraction. This kind of insanity should never happen, but it did, and does… I am hoping that Trump will manage to create a strong peace over all odds
      “The ship was carrying lifeboats and rafts for 5,000 people, but many of the lifesaving appliances were frozen to the deck, and their effective use was further impeded by the fact that one of the torpedoes had hit the crew quarters, killing those best trained to deal with the situation. Nine vessels took on survivors throughout the night. Of the estimated 10,000 people on board the Gustloff, only 1,239 could be registered as survivors…”

    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.
