Thursday April 12th – 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 †

    From Sunday’s “giddy-up” thread:

    “The first series of those DOJ/FBI document releases will likely happen tomorrow, April 9th, or shortly thereafter. Another part of John Lausch responsibilities is likely to aide in separating the criminal evidence from within the document production. While these productions are *NOT* the IG report itself, these productions are some of the underlying evidence that underpins chapters of the IG report.”

    Thursday noon, still no sign of DOJ/FBI document releases.

    Anyone have a new guess?

    The inertia of TPTB are tremendous. Just thinking out loud here and I will tell you that I feel very disheartened. My country that “I thought I knew” seems to be just a memory. I don’t want to sound like a downer but I don’t know of another place where I could even post this. I am praying for America.

          I posted a memorial to her memory here at the CTH in January.

          https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2018/01/15/monday-january-15th-open-thread/#comment-4858196

          I’m presently working on an idea of creating a memorial to Pixie on WordPress and allow others that have lost their personal “angel” to post their own memorial. The problem now is to find the time to do the project.

          Take care and God Bless

            Hey they, oldiadguy……I’ve been saving this for you. It ‘s a vid interview of Putin, roughly 1 1/2 hrs. long. It’s from the end of March 2018. I haven’t had TIME to post some of my collections from this week. One thing that is interesting, from just a minute ago literally, I went to this link to make sure it was still a valid link (when I came across it last weekend, I did make an off-line capture of it) but now yt wants you to log in, “might have sensitive content”. {ha!}

            I’m going to post this. I didn’t know if you have a yt acct or not. If you don’t, and can’t see this, let me know, I’ll hook you up privately. (Hellz, I’ll drive a copy to you if I have to, you’re only 6hrs away!)

            posted description:
            “World Order 2018” is a new documentary movie by TV host, Vladimir Soloviev, in which he discusses with Russia’s President Putin all the major events of the past few years: the Syrian situation, the destruction of the Middle East, the expansion of NATO, the immigration crisis in Europe, the destabilisation of Eastern Ukraine and the situation in Crimea, US-Russian relations, and of course the nuclear arms race. They also touch on topics rarely answered by world leaders: the eradication of national identities, the re-writing of history, and the essence of the Holocaust.

    Very open to suggestions on this. I live in Commieland, other counties are Republican but not mine. Republicans can’t march in parades because of the violence here.

    I want to win for the Trump agenda. That is what I will fight for. Sun Tzu strategies, tactics and Trumpism. The Oregon Republican website is not very inspiring. Seriously open to suggestions from BigMamaTEA and other veteran Treepers.

    It begins…..with:

    Reading the Republican website in Oregon from stem to stern.

    Not much into joining clubs. Did it for my kids but this will be the first time for a cause, not a kid. This really isn’t my thing, but I’m gonna do it anyway.

        The Republicans here should have PTSD based on the Antifa stuff going on in Oregon. I hope it’s exaggerated. Maybe these are really nice people like on the CTH and are shocked by the behavior.

    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.

    A longtime opponent of genetically engineered mosquitoes was found dead in a Washington D.C. hotel as she prepared to present a petition with over 200,000 signatures to the EPA.

    On Tuesday morning Mila de Mier—a 45-year-old activist from Key West, Florida who opposed the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes—was found dead in a swimming pool at a hotel in Washington D.C. De Meir was visiting D.C. to deliver a petition to the Environmental Protection Agency demanding the agency deny a permit for the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes in Florida and Texas.

      This is interesting. Mr. Hogg retweeted a suggestion from an organization that encourages voter fraud: Just show up and vote. He listed the states where this is possible, including North Dakota?

      And, this statistic quoted in the article from the National Review, if accurate, is also memorable:

      “Any shooting is tragic, but a shooting inside the ghetto at a housing project actually is a reason to have armed citizens, not take away law-abiding citizens’ guns. “A staggering 82 percent of African-American gun deaths are homicides, and gun deaths are lowest in the population that owns the most guns, according to a 2015 Brookings Institution study,” reports the National Review.”

        I don’t know that exact study….but the Demonrats can look at the Feds’ records and find the exact same thing. (Even when Eric the red Holder was Attny. General!)

        So, the Demonrats actually are very aware of this data. They do not care. The issue is NOT guns. The Demonrats want CONTROL and they will lie, cheat, steal & kill without blinking an eye to try to get this, and they will use “useful idiots” to do so.

        The D party has been completely taken over by the communist party.

          Oh, and wondering…….The Brookings Institute is/has been for several decades a LEFTIST group! They weren’t set up that way; but after the 60’s the majority of what used to be considered honorable foundations that some were philanthropic, or some had some original cause…. ie The Ford Foundation etc. are now just multi-million dollar business’ with payrolls to maintain, run by leftists and commies. Shame.

      Did Mr. Hogg take Civics in high school, or is that one of the subjects that was dropped from public school curriculum… (like penmanship, spelling, geography, foreign languages, memorizing math multiplication tables, etc.) This is what Hogg retweeted? From an organization named Head Count that is apparently encouraging voter fraud?
