Thursday February 15th – 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 †

    On Senate tee-vee…….”excitement” on the Floor today. {snicker}

    Any one interested, take a look at what Chuckles submitted last night as the Demonrat immigration plan. Notice all the hand notations!!!

    Now, the question is did Chuckles change the date to June 30, 2018 BEFORE or AFTER 8 RINO’s signed on? (I’ll post those in next comment)

    Republi-rats are trying to get the “Grassley bill” for a Vote, Chuckles submitted the Demonrats’ above, and TurtleHead has up to this point have a “blank bill” be filled in.

    Oh, and Trump is telling the Senate right now he will VETO Chuckles’ bill!

      I never knew much about Senator Rounds before but I now know all I need to know.

      Senator Mike Rounds is a RINO traitor.

        Yeah I know, and a few of ’em haven’t figured out there’s a new sheriff in town and he’s got 65+million of us as his posse, and those of us who are activists are going to be looking to recruit new activists in their states next!!

    Meet the new Gang of Immigration 8…… I have put the re-election date of their Seat at the end of each name.

    Mike Rounds (S.D.) – 2020

    Johnny Isakson (Ga.) – 2022

    Lamar Alexander (Tenn.) – 2020

    Susan Collins (Maine) – 2020 – (has been wavering on running for Maine gov. but no decision yet)

    Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) – 2022

    Jeff Flake (Ariz.) – 2018 -SEAT UP for grabs- not running again

    Lindsey Graham (S.C.) – 2020

    Cory Gardner (Colo.) – 2020

    If any of these are “your guys” I’d contact them. Ask them why they signed onto the Demonrat (Chuckles’) bill?

    (pssp. Expect them to say “it wasn’t like that when I signed on” {which may or may not be true, but if you lie with dogs expect fleas!})

        Yes, and Corey Gardner, is the in the appointed position of RS-LMNOP(?) leader (it’s a position that helps to recruit for empty seats in the Senate!) Which means a guy that votes for straight amnesty and open borders in an appointed position will be recruiting new people to join the Senate.

    Okay, TurtleHead just came to the floor and stated for the Record that the Cloture vote “ripens” at 2:30pmEST today.

    So, procedural votes should start soon after.

      Apparently there are a couple of other bills which have not been presented yet according to Cornyn. (Apparently Sen.Rounds also signed a bill with Collins!)

    Nancy doesn’t seem mentally capable holding office.

    Even with talking points she is still incoherent.

    The “Grassley” bill has itself undergone some changes since it was first announced Sunday night!!

    I’d rather NOTHING be passed than a bundle of crap.

    Lots of important topics in the Open Thread today. And now I will contribute a new topic that is of great importance to me.

    I am not giving up on ANY region of the country! Freedom is for all Americans.

    Some whose eyes are set on the prize of true freedom for our nation are preparing to join in the most powerful effort of all (as given by our Lord Jesus Christ), that is, fasting + prayer.

    California Dreaming Fast

    Three leaders, providing three complementary initiatives, to see the people of California (and the world) turn again to God.

    1. Celebratory worship, releasing praise and joy.
    “now is the time for what has been sown in tears to be spring forth in harvest.” Ps. 126
    “The fasts… will become joyful and glad occasions and happy festivals for Judah.” Zechariah 8:19

    2. A complete fasting from negativity towards the state and it’s people, rallying thousands to prophesy blessing over California as in Psalm 67. As we fast from negativity it will be important to release the opposite spirit of joy and blessings to open the heavens.

    3. Forty days of fasting and prayer for this great harvest, March 1st to April 9th, 2018.

    Harvest Thanks and Petition
    Psalm 67

    (for the leader; with stringed instruments. a psalm; a song)

    May God be gracious to us and bless us; may his face shine upon us.

    So shall your way be known upon the earth,
    your victory among all the nations.

    May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you!

    May the nations be glad and rejoice;
    for you judge the peoples with fairness,
    you guide the nations upon the earth.

    May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you!

    The earth has yielded its harvest;
    God, our God, blesses us.

    May God bless us still;
    that the ends of the earth may revere him.

    Back to Senate tee-vee……Well, we’ve just had a series of votes. Nothing has passed, due to the fact that they need 3/5th vote right now for the Cloture vote.

    **IMO TurtleHead should’ve gone nuclear since the lines are so close in this Senate. But , TurtleHead refuses to do that, just-in-case they should lose the Senate. {SMH} How about instead TurtleHead lose his SEAT!!! Ahwaaaa, but TurtleHead is happy to think as long as he’s in the Senate he will be minority leader, and that’s okay too! His Leadership position for the next “Congressional Session” = 2 years; needs to be challenged, since his Senate term is not up until 2020.

    This is a Senate Rule. Not in the Constitution. But, the Constitution does all each Chamber to determine their own Rules on how the chamber is run.

    Right now, they are behind closed doors with nothing to show for this entire week. Stay tuned.

      Let me clarify…..A combination of Chuckles’ bill with McNasty/Vlad Coons = FAILED = {good IMO, Trump threatened to Veto anyway if passed}

      The Toomey Amendment to penalize Sanctuary Cities for what they are doing = FAILED = {bad IMO)

      And the Grassley bill = FAILED {Now I’m a little torn on this one cause I do not like the Trump-added increased numbers in illegals allowed. But I’m really torn after finding out that there have been more changes to that bill since it was presented at the beginning of the week, and wonder if Trump has been told correctly. I trust no one.)

    Today is the 15th according to the civil calendar, but is February 2nd on the traditional Church calendar.

    The Feast Day of the Meeting of the Lord in the Temple is commemorated 40 days after the Savior’s Nativity. There He met Saint Simeon and the Prophetess Anna. (See the Gospel according to Saint Luke). Saint Simeon was one of the 70 who were charged to translate the Hebrew Scriptures into Greek and lived to a very old age, permitted by God, so that he would meet the Messiah.

    Then, St. Joseph the Betrothed (who was an elderly widower with several children when God appointed him to be the guardian of the Ever-Virgin Mary and her Divine Son) took the Theotokos and Jesus Christ, along with St. James (his son by his first wife) into Egypt for safekeeping.

    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.

    My friends I have enjoyed my time with you all, sadly it is time for me to say goodbye. I am off to live my life in whatever ignorant bliss I may be able to find.

    If the alarm sounds I will answer it.

    As for the rest of this mess, Prep, Pray, Prep some more, then Pray a whole lot more and keep Praying.

    God Bless you all.

    Treeper Peeple, please help me out here. When I come on here, the only way I know to sign in is to upvote a comment, then ever-miserable Word Press opens a box and wants a log-in. OK, done! It’s sometimes an hour before it finally recognizes the log-in, always at least a half-hour. I can usually speed it up by posting a comment, but hate to post mindless babble just to get logged in.
    Coming here by way of Pale Moon browser, Firefox gets same result, so it seems to be a WP thing. Am I doing something wrong or is there something I don’t know about? I’ve never seen any complaint about this, unlike the ‘no edit function’. (wonder if we could threaten a DoS attack if WP doesn’t give us edit?, hee hee), so I’m thinking it’s prolly sumpin I don’t know? Any help much appreciated!
