Tuesday April 3rd – 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 †

    In other news:
    The Yahoo shooting: more problems when Liberals have guns?

    I swear I would have my wife and daughter carrying regularly, but the thought just scares me. And them. Not everyone, at all points in their life, is in the right state to have gun access. So, we are relying on prayer a lot of the time.

    Another thought: OK, let’s see 1. whether the shooter legitimately had the gun or not; 2. what proposed gun control measure, short of “no citizens with guns whatsoever” would have prevented this tragedy, and 3. was the shooter known to the FBI, and should have been reeled in like yesterday??!!

    Sundance and fellow Treepers,

    I have lurked and learned on CTH for the last several months. Thank you for all of the great insight!
    I woke this morning with a whimsical thought. Probably the result of incessant reading on this subject. Anyway, I followed through with an adaptation of Casey at the Bat. I present it here for your amusement. With apologies to Ernest Lawrence Thayer…

    ***Comey at the Stand***

    The outlook wasn’t brilliant, for Bureau Corrupts that day,
    Trump defeated Hillary, so “insurance policy” went into play.
    But when Page had texts discovered, Strzok by association had the same,
    a swell of deep denial rose, from liberals of the game.

    Well reasoned few got up to leave their party in disgust,
    the rest clung to collusion, since their fake news said they must.
    They thought, “If Comey’s gospel, can deliver truth across our land.”
    “We’ll double down our hopes and dreams, with Comey at the stand.”

    Former a demoted DOJ, the latter flush with legal aid.
    So upon that biased “Small Group”, a day of reckoning at hand?
    for there seemed but little chance, of Comey subpoenaed to the stand.

    But Ohr had struck an early deal, stabbing Comey-Brennan in the back,
    and McCabe fresh off his firing, decried political attack.
    So when the court resumed, the whole affair was getting smelly,
    McCabe burned through his Go Fund Me, with Bruce Ohr a-hugging Nellie.

    Then from five million throats and maybe more, there rose a bloodlust yell,
    it rumbled down throughout D.C., and raised the wrath of hell.
    It resounded off the Capital, and shook the Jury great and Grand,
    for Comey, honorable Comey, was advancing to the stand.

    There was ease in Comey’s manner as his entrance awed the place,
    there was pride in Comey’s bearing and no sweat on Comey’s face.
    He acknowledged adulation, then he firmly raised his hand,
    no conservative dared cast a doubt, ‘twas Comey at the stand.

    Ten million eyes were on him, he stretched the collar of shirt,
    five million viewers sympathized, once he professed his honor hurt.
    When just before the cross exam, Huber raised water to his lips,
    defiance flashed in Comey’s eyes, determined not to flip.

    From the bound and leather law books, came violation of Bureau code,
    but Comey snidely looked askance, in haughty grandeur mode.
    Close to the ex Director, charge lands on agency he led—
    “I didn’t authorize the leaks”, “Charge one!” the Judge replied instead.

    From the cheap seats flush with liberals, there went up an outraged roar,
    the real collusion was with Carter Page, on Russia’s distant shore.
    “Kill him! Kill the judge!” jumped someone off his seat,
    and it’s likely they’d have killed him, but Comey bid them to retreat.

    Embodying “The Rule Of Law” great Comey’s halo shone,
    he stilled the Maddow zombies, he bade the questioning go on.
    He signaled “bring it” out to Huber, another accusation flew,
    Comey recalled feeling “queasy”, but the Judge ruled “that’s Charge two!”

    “Treason!” cried ex supporters, and an echo answered “Treason!”
    but one scornful look from Comey, and the throng regained their reason.
    They saw his face grow stern and cold, they saw his eyebrows strain,
    they knew that Comey wouldn’t let, a charge to stick again.

    The calm is gone from Comey’s brow, eyes fixed with evil look,
    he pounds his fist ironically on, the title of his autographed book.
    First John Huber reviews the charge, and next he lets it fly,
    and now the air is shattered, sheer force of Comey in reply.

    Oh, finally now in Washington, the electorate is proven right,
    the Bureau investigates real crimes, back fighting the good fight.
    And throughout agents true and honest, with honor spy about,
    but there is no joy on 7th floor—mighty Comey has pled out.

    Oops. Line missing. Should be at top of third verse:

    But Ohr preceded Comey, as also did McCabe,

    Published in The American Spectator”
    “Confirmed: John Brennan Colluded With Foreign Spies to Defeat Trump”

    “April 19, 2017, 12:04 am
    This is the open scandal that Congress should investigate.
    An article in the Guardian last week provides more confirmation that John Brennan was the American progenitor of political espionage aimed at defeating Donald Trump. One side did collude with foreign powers to tip the election — Hillary’s.

    Seeking to retain his position as CIA director under Hillary, Brennan teamed up with British spies and Estonian spies to cripple Trump’s candidacy. He used their phony intelligence as a pretext for a multi-agency investigation into Trump, which led the FBI to probe a computer server connected to Trump Tower and gave cover to Susan Rice, among other Hillary supporters, to spy on Trump and his people.

    John Brennan’s CIA operated like a branch office of the Hillary campaign, leaking out mentions of this bogus investigation to the press in the hopes of inflicting maximum political damage on Trump. An official in the intelligence community tells TAS that Brennan’s retinue of political radicals didn’t even bother to hide their activism, decorating offices with “Hillary for president cups” and other campaign paraphernalia.”

      Thanks! This is rock-solid!
      You cite a news website.
      That is directly citing another news website.
      That relies on unnamed sources.

      Let’s go to court NOW!!

    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.

    Dang it. Apparently there was a Beverly Hills Antifa account on twitter but twitter took it down because it was “fake”. It was clearly a parody account. Would they take down DPRK News Service or Onion? https://twitter.com/account/suspended You can find lots of evidence of it by searching on #BeverlyHillsAntifa https://twitter.com/hashtag/BeverlyHillsAntifa?src=hash
