Sunday February 11th – 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 find it hard to believe that Mike Pence actually tweeted a negative comment about North Korea knowing that Kim Jong Un’s sister was sitting directly behind him. This whole thing smells of a set up.


    • millwright says:

      I find it hard to believe VP Pence would tweet anything in that setting ! Our VP has repeatedly demonstrated his self-control and civility being fully aware of the significance placed upon ( on inferred from by a hostile media ) his every public action . Moreover, he was in an insecure setting being both electronically and visibly observable.

        Do a little bit reading on the Olympics and North Korea. They have played Olympic Footsie with South Korea for past few Olympics, especially when South Korea has a weak president bent on appeasement. The façade plays out the same every time. The US media goes ga ga, fawns over the North Korean gesture, all other NK domestic atrocities aside, and soon after North Korea returns to their normal bad actor modus of operation.

        I fel guilty, I forgot about watching even the opening ceremonies.
        I want to support our fine young athletes, but after that horrible gay themed political performance by Matt Lauer at Sochi, and what’s-his-name who couldn’t/wouldn’t step aside even with a disgusting case of pink eye on view to the world (someone had to badger Mike Phelps and attempt to start petty feuds), I just don’t feel up to watching.
        I suppose I could find reruns minus the jabbering somewhere online, but it is not the same without the collective consciousness, the shared experience.
        That’s the whole idea behind the offensive and intrusive commentary, I guess.
        To keep Americans from sharing, as a people.

    Woman’s dying wish to see art gallery granted by Dutch charity

    Wim Pijbes, director general of the Rijksmuseum, said: “Ever since its opening in 2013 The Rijksmuseum has welcomed and accommodated the Last Wish Foundation.

    “We give our full support to this extraordinary initiative, and have great admiration for everyone concerned in these very special moments.”

    The picture the woman is shown looking at is called Self-Portrait with Two Circles and was painted in around 1660.

    It is generally considered to be a masterpiece of Rembrandt’s later years.

    We need to push for voter ID in this scrum that is coming. There will be a lot of political will to really clean up the decades of voter fraud and irregularities.

      Ring; First we must determine how to implement accurate voter identification; i.e. what criterium, how to facilitate, how to document and establish a searchable data base of identities, and how to provide voters with some sort of unforgeable ID linking them to every polling place and voting event at which they present the required ID . But we also need to purge the voter rolls of the deceased and create some way to prevent their identities from being hijacked by fraudulent voters and/or political machines . And, first and foremost , we need a very public campaign sanctifying not only the act of voting, but of following the election laws and stressing how each person’s vote is their voice in government. ( Dealing with elected representatives contemptuous of their base is another issue . )

        Hey! Thanks for finding time to even take a look.
        I think you must have a certain kind of patience. 🙂

        I was sad hearing his “insider” observation that there are influential Christian leaders that don’t know the difference between democrat and republican parties! (Queued copy of video below.)

        Lance has been around and is legit in his own realm. If you don’t know the history, his early endorsement of Donald Trump early in the primaries drove the religious right nuts.

        You might recall his pre-election book, God’s Chaos Candidate, that did it’s part in stirring up the evangelical vote. Or maybe you heard his observation early on about our VSG Lion in the context of taking on the PC culture, “… Trump is a wrecking ball …”.

        Here’s a quote of Wallnau’s message to evangelical voters before the election:
        “I wish the Christian community had ears to hear—Trump is a “Cyrus” ruler who is under the anointing of “Common Grace.”

        I heard the Lord tell me this after I read about Cyrus in Isaiah 45. The Lord spoke two words: “Common grace … Common grace!” This is a term used by reformed theologians … Ever wonder what keeps fallen man from total self-destruction? Common grace comes down upon a fallen world to keep in check the forces of anarchy. It stirs in man the ideals of virtue and justice.

        It is the grace that comes upon all (Christian and non-Christian) to help them affirm the good and resist the bad, personally and in institutions. It is the hidden hand of God that works to promote justice and order in a world where selfishness could produce societal collapse. “Saving grace” is what gets you saved and “common grace” is the special influence of God that comes upon man to keep society from imploding.”

            Romans 1:18-32
            God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness
            18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
            24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
            26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
            28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[a] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[b] unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

          If you compare it to times of kings in their castles. They were so very rich. They looked down from their high castles to the poor peasants below. The kings fed them crumbs. The kings became bored, so they had jesters, clowns, magicians to entertain them. Because they were so very rich with money and power, they were bored. No friends, no partners, not God.
          Same with Roman times. The emperors became bored. So they created the games of battle in the coliseum. Slaves killing each other for pleasure.

          It remains true today. Nancy Pelosi. She has more money than any of us could dream. But still she talks of people getting crumbs and won’t go away.

          Soros. All the money….all that money…but he is also bored. As the kings and emperors were. Him, the Rothchilds, the Rockefellers…all of them. No spirit. Not soul. Just all the money…and…they want complete power over the entire world…History tells us all about these people. Look back at the kings, the emperors…the Global rich.

          Even now…they look down from their high castles, behind their walls..But now they are finally feeling fear..They don’t know exactly why..but they feel it..feel it coming..they actually feel a tremble..a powerful tremble, getting louder every day.

          They feel us. Us, with our faith in God and Jesus. With our bibles, our guns, and our Lion. President Trump. And, in the back of their minds..the know the truth..their end is coming. Coming like a storm they have never known
          Pray for our country and our President.

            Years ago I watched a Chuck Smith video where a kid he mentored told him a story about one of the things that drew him out of Satanism eventually to Christianity. The boy was born into and raised in a Satanic cult, heavily involved with witchcraft and the occult. By the time he reached high school, he was consumed with the power he possessed and the control it enabled him over people.

            While in high school, he needed tutoring in one of his classes, so he was assigned a tutor. When he walked into the classroom for his first lesson, he was suddenly face to face with an inextricable power he had never come across before. All of his familiar spirits fled him and he suddenly KNEW he was up against a power greater than his. And what did he face? It was a little old lady, literally, who was a devout Christian. In that first moment he knew, without a shadow of doubt, that all of his power was powerless in the face of this enemy whom he had never met before. This woman hadn’t said anything to him other than good afternoon, but he FELT the Holy Spirit in her, just simply because she was in the room.

            There is obviously a lot more to this story of redemption, but I have never forgotten the impact it had on me as I truly, truly understood for the first time that verse, greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world. She was just a simple believer with a powerful belief and this boy, for the first time in his life, physically felt the impact of a true faith warrior.

The last spending bill had, deeply buried in it, a provision to cancel the $330-million ‘borrowed’ by three predominantly black universities in New Orleans. One of those Universities, Southern University in New Orleans, is historically ac basket case, regularly placing in the bottom tier of colleges/universities in the US with one of the lowest graduation rates in the country:
    At one time the state even floated the idea of paying ‘good’ students to go to SUNO to get that graduation rate up but there was a dearth of ‘good’ students who wanted to waste years of their lives at a school with substandard facilities and professors.

  38. Interesting link posted by Sharyl Attkisson on Twitter regarding her lawsuit:

    “Obama Leak Investigations (internal use only – pls do not forward)

    Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists learning
    information from inside the beltway sources.

    Note — There is specific tasker from the WH to go after anyone printing
    materials negative to the Obama agenda (oh my.) Even the FBI is
    shocked. The Wonder Boys must be in meltdown mode…”

    This is an email from September 2010 released by Wikileaks. The communist Brennan has been steeped in corruption and thuggery for a long time.

    JIHAD IN AMERICA…Four articles by Robert Spencer yesterday re what’s happening with Islamic terrorism in the U.S. Note that these are not front-page news for a reason…the Left hates America as founded and our Constitution, and so they easily side with the jihad thinking they won’t get consumed too.

    “Muslim college student admits to plotting jihad massacre in New York City for the Islamic State”

    “Bronx: Muslim accused of supporting ISIS laughs through court appearance, grins and waves to courtroom”

    “Leslie Morgan Steiner in WaPo: “Domestic abuse” was “terrifying connection” between Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Omar Mateen”

    FBI questioned Muslima four months before her jihad arson attack for exhorting Muslims to join jihad terror groups

    @ soozword
    If you have Opera’s VPN turned on, it will cause the security warning from websites.

        “Warning: You do not have a secure browser”
        On rare occasions, some sites may greet you with a page saying something like “You do not have a secure browser; please download xx [another browser]”. This type of warning is not correct; Opera is one of the most secure browsers around. This happens, though, because some website designers still design their sites to work for specific browsers only, rather than use agreed web standards that work for all browsers. Further, some may mistakenly believe that only certain browsers support advanced security. These websites “sniff” your browser’s user agent string to either grant or deny access to the site. If Opera’s user agent string is not defined for the site for any of the reasons mentioned above, access is automatically denied.

        What can you do if you do see a message like this?

        For the rare cases where access is denied and the website will not render in Opera, changing Opera’s “identity” is the only solution. You can do this by following the steps below:

        Go to Settings > Quick Preferences > Edit site preferences > Network > Browser identification .
        Select “Identify as Mozilla” or “Identify as Internet Explorer”. This adjusts the Opera user agent string to identify itself as another browser but still keeps Opera’s name in the string.
        Go back to the site you were attempting to access. You should now be able to access it. If not, repeat the above steps and select “Mask as Mozilla” or “Mask as Internet Explorer”. This is a more extreme measure and removes any sign of Opera from the Opera user agent string.

          That sequence does not work in the newer Opera versions. But I drilled down to Network in settings anyways using the present sequence but it no longer offers changing browser identification. I would want it to work for all websites, not just particular ones. So tried going to opera:config and all it got me was back to the settings menu, nothing more (already on advanced). Seems like others are frustrated with not being able to change the browser identification on the newer Opera, not just me. It’s not a big deal, I just ignore the warning and continue on the website. I think there was only one or two times that I had to actually change to Firefox (yuck, super resources hog on my laptop!) or IE. Thanks anyways!!!

            You’ve got me curious.
            If you click on Opera/About Opera, and look at ‘Paths;’ what do you see in ‘Profile and Cache?’


            • soozword says:

              Install: C:\Program Files\Opera
              Profile: C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable
              Cache: C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable

                That’s as it should be.
                In your ‘Version’ section, is it up to date, or are you getting ‘An error occurred while checking for updates’ message?

    I was the victim of a clever gang of organized car burglars in the Bay Area who are using sophisticated scanners to copy and boost the key-fob signal for recent model keyless entry and ignition cars. Once you latch on to the signal, the car door unlocks at the touch of your hand, as people with such models know. (I learned about this security flaw subsequently as looked into how this could have happened.) All of the restaurants and retail establishments in my neighborhood have posted printed signs saying “leave no valuables in your car; frequent car thefts in the area.” I have taken electronic countermeasures against this happening again.

    This kind of activity is epidemic in the Bay Area right now. There were 30,000 car thefts reported in San Francisco last year (much higher in the Bay Area as a whole). The police are doing very little about it.

    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.
