Thursday February 22nd – 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 †

    Trump Opens Door to National Gun Registry with Proposed Gun Controls

    DJT tweet: “I will be strongly pushing Comprehensive Background Checks with an emphasis on Mental Health. Raise age to 21 and end sale of Bump Stocks! Congress is in a mood to finally do something on this issue – I hope!”


    Breitbart: “Although there is a lack of clarity on what Trump means by “comprehensive background checks,” as to whether he is referencing an overhaul of our current system or is pushing the universal background checks lauded by Democrats, it is important to note that this represents a turning point which opens the door to a national gun registry.

    This is so because universal background checks are not enforceable without a gun registry.

    For contemporary, real world proof of this danger just look at California, where universal background checks led to registration requirements which resulted in gun confiscation laws. This has all played out before our eyes and is evident to those who pay attention.”

    If they try for a national registry, or a registry of any kind, then we are at war. The government has declared war on the People and on the Constitution of the United States.

    It is war.

        If he wants to see his ‘base’ disintegrate, he’s right on track.

        He may be playing his usual negotiating ploys, I hope that’s all it is, but this subject is not a game.

        It is literally the last line of defense.

        There is no reason not to die on this hill, because there are no other hills after it which are free.

      I hope there is more to this. I disagree on this stance by POTUS. This is not open to negotiations.

      That was an amazing and gut-wrenching story. I was amazed that they waited so long to decide that their best chance to survive was to kill the saboteur, Calloway.

      It should have been their first thought, or at least render the attacker unconscious, and if he dies in the process, that’s not a concern.

      The fact that all three of the good guys were seriously wounded, having been hit repeatedly in the head with a claw hammer, and were bleeding profusely, meant that incapacitating the attacker by whatever means possible (death being the most certain means) should have been their first response.

      It should have been a first reaction, not something contemplated during a lengthy struggle during which any or all of the good guys might passed out and never regained consciousness.

      They are lucky that their hesitation did not cost all of them their lives.

      I’m sure glad they made it.

    THE SECRET OF JOY: PSALM 126 by by Josh Moody

    Pastor Charles H. Spurgeon was once criticized for putting too much laughter into his sermons. Frivolous. Lacking gravity. His reply to the woman who had button-holed him was classic: “My good lady, if you only knew how much I restrain myself.”

    This psalm shows us not only that “laughter” (Psalms 126:2) and God go together but also God and “joy” (Psalms 126:2-6). This psalm is written to help you discover the secret of joy.

    A song of ascents.

    1 When the Lord restored the fortunes of [a] Zion,
    we were like those who dreamed. [b]
    2 Our mouths were filled with laughter,
    our tongues with songs of joy.
    Then it was said among the nations,
    “The Lord has done great things for them.”
    3 The Lord has done great things for us,
    and we are filled with joy.
    4 Restore our fortunes, [c] Lord,
    like streams in the Negev.
    5 Those who sow with tears
    will reap with songs of joy.
    6 Those who go out weeping,
    carrying seed to sow,
    will return with songs of joy,
    carrying sheaves with them.

    Footnotes, New International Version:
    [a] Psalm 126:1 Or Lord brought back the captives to
    [b] Psalm 126:1 Or those restored to health
    [c] Psalm 126:4 Or Bring back our captives

    “Navy veteran shoots home invasion suspect, says he was ‘in fear’ for his life.

    Marchese told FOX13 he has no idea why Bernard picked his house, but he says it was the wrong choice. The Citrus County Sheriff’s office said Marchese won’t face charges.”

    Oh Trudeau way to look a fool and offend the Indians! Dressing up in traditional Sikh and Indian wedding clothes along with the wife and kids and prancing about the country. Eventually he was being mocked openly my many Indians on the Internet. PM Modi didn’t even meet him at the airport, he sent the Secretary of Agriculture instead. Not a good way to win trade deals. Talk about amateur hour. That is just downright embarrassing for a head of state.

    Looks like the libs got another scalp. They indicted the Republican of Missouri.

    I’m not sure how they obtained the indictment as I understand it, the woman refused to cooperate. Time will tell.

    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.
