Saturday April 28th – 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 †

    Something of importance I chose to place here, rather than getting lost in the Presidential Thread:

    School to parents: Kids required to take gender orientation classes
    But officials do concede mom and dad can teach what they want at home

    “…[Todd] Starnes was even more direct.

    “Allow me to be blunt – the idea that parents do not have the constitutional right to determine what is best for their child is downright evil. Yes, evil. Our nation’s public schools have turned into indoctrination centers by a gang of radical, sex and gender revolutionaries.”

    Other schools have taken a difference approach: They simply subject the children to their sex-indoctrination programs without telling parents….”

      So many enablers are available to children via teachers, social workers, extra-curricular sponsors and social media just at the time when children are trying to compose their own individuality. Way too much info, way too soon in development.

      Please join forces with other parents to slow down this stampede.

      They actually teach only what serves their agenda. Believe me, I know for a fact they do not also teach girls what FGM is. I’d rather my child (or Grandchild) know about this evil, than about 76 genders and their “names”!

    Public defecation, urination & drug use: San Francisco drug users shooting up in BART station

    From Fox News: Dozens of drug users — some slumped over and others shooting up — are becoming near-permanent fixtures at some San Francisco rail stations, with a shocking video this week showing rush hour commuters hurrying past the addicts to reach the trains.

      The “officials” are running such a big game (as usual) sheesh! “…more police officers…” Yeah…that’s the ticket. They do not care one bit about the stable segment of society. They like things just as they are and will not bat an eye as it gets worse.

      This is O’Reilly from 2016 but SFO has been on the decline waaaay before then.
      (btw I miss O’Reilly like mad. He was always totally prepared and challenged the clowns when they started spewing their nonsense)

      Oh, just a fwiw I only watched about a minute of the vid so not responsible if it goes off the rails…..nope 😎 😛


    • Thanks for that eye opening video Dora.

      This may not be the place to bring this up but the U.S. does not need any more so called refugees ( tired, poor, huddled masses).

      We have enough of our own homeless, sick and needy to care for and really need to stop importing more “huddled masses”.

      If you haven’t guessed what my comment is about yet I am talking about the so called migrant caravan headed our way.

      Many of them are planning on seeking asylum.

    The Murder of Martin Luther King Jr.: How the Myths Were Created and Sustained for Fifty Years
    By Phillip F. Nelson

    Within the historical abuses under J. Edgar Hoover and now more malfeasance decades later, this research is well worth considering. Especially in light of lies propagated by the MSM “fake news”;

    Within my newest book, , (Skyhorse Publications, May 1, 2018), I present what I refer to as the long-hidden “Rosetta Stone” of that case: Proof that FBI leaders—in addition to what has long been known about how they surveilled and stalked Dr. King around the country as they conducted illegal wiretaps—had also gone to great lengths to plot his final demise. As all of that was going on, they simultaneously brought three contemporary “acclaimed journalists” on board for the purpose of preparing the public to accept an “official story” about the alleged assassin that had no basis in fact. The creation of the myths about James Earl Ray had begun well before King’s assassination and were based upon reframing his persona, from that of a backward, but non-racist, introvert with an eighth-grade level education, a country boy from Northwest Illinois—who had become a petty, small-time swindler and burglar, yet always non-violent in behavior—but morphed by them into a man portrayed as a vicious Southern racist who dreamt of national notoriety, a man who purportedly set out to fulfill his dreams by stalking and killing Martin Luther King Jr.

    Some are saying that if the North Korean problem is solved, and the Korean Conflict (war) is finally ended, then Trump should get the Nobel Peace Prize.

    Considering how the Nobel Committee (comity?) gave one to Yassar Arafat for nothing, and one to BHO for winning his first term, and how leftist they are, I predict that they would award it to Kim Jong Un.

    Excuse me. I need to use the toilet to express my thoughts and feelings about the Nobel Comity.

      “I predict that they would award it to Kim Jong Un.”

      PDJT would probably take the Ronald Reagan approach, if that were to happen. RR’s attitude (according to his son) was that he did not care who got the credit (deal with the Soviet Union – the most important thing is that it got done.

    The Gateway Pundit has been under constant DDoS attack for the past ten days from an unknown source originating in California, DC, and Seattle. A DDoS (short for distributed denial of service) attack is a cyber attack that floods a website with so much fake traffic that the server that the infrastructure that hosts the website is unable to function, shutting the site down and providing unreliable service. It’s a very common tool used by malicious leftists, the Drudge Report was targeted with a similar attack last year.

    The attacks against Gateway Pundit have been ongoing since April 15th, when Jim Hoft published a widely-shared article about George Soros targeting district attorney races throughout the United States. Nearly immediately, we were hit with over 140,000 hacking attempts along with continuing DDoS attacks that have persisted through today.

      It was slow getting into the website. I know nothing about the inner workings of such things, but hopefully there aren’t viruses which come with the visitation.

      Without doubt, Soros or one of his entities is paying the bills for these attacks. Fascists stick together. Soros is one of the scariest guys on the planet and his sons are following in his diseased footsteps.

      Something else which I thought quite some time ago about Soros…remember when Glenn Beck was on FOX? I watched his fascinating show from time to time and it was there that I learned of the extent of Soros’ perfidy. Once Beck presented this info and Soros warned him there would be consequences to his “lies”, that’s when Beck began his slow slide into no-consequence status and being a tad off-kilter. Makes a person wonder if there is a connection between the Soros threat and Deep State mind-bending. Probably not, but still it’s odd that the threat was made and subsequently Beck was “disappeared” into the realm of the non-influential and thought of as a nut.

    Parents at Upper West Side schools in New York City angrily protested the latest plans by school administrators to bus in lower income minority students into their local schools.

    The administrator lectured the parents and told them how offended he was by their comments.

    The Upper West Side went to Hillary Clinton by 89% in 2016.

      When liberals are called upon to live up to their words, they show their phoniness. It’s like Ted Kennedy wanting wind power but just not in his neighborhood. Limousine libs.

      They’re stupid enough to remain in the group that takes away their freedom and indoctrinates their children. Amazing!

      The racist administrators miss the point. 25% of admissions is being set aside for students who are below grade level in essential subjects. It so happens that most of those kids are black, but that isn’t the reason why they are behind.

      I am spending a lot of time with a household where the grandma is a kindergarten teacher. Her 2-year-old grandchild is going to think that she is a genius when she enters school. Why? Because she will be anywhere from 1-5 years ahead of the other students. Why? Because this 2-year-old is learning to be bilingual (English and Chinese); because her grandparents have provided her with every possible learning tool from books to outdoor thermometers in Celsius and Fahrenheit, and explain everything in the world patiently and with love; and because this child is exceptionally well-fed and well-rested and secure in her family (not a bunch of boyfriends coming and going). THOSE are the factors that puts some kids light years ahead in the game. It has nothing to do with race.

      If the parents have been working all day, the kid stays up until midnight or until falling asleep from exhaustion, eats at McDonald’s or whatever can be found in a hurry… the kid will be demoralized on getting to school and realize that some kids are WAY ahead. It’s not fair to any of the kids to put them all in the same class as if they all had equal preparation, and it’s based on a brutal LIE that pretends all children have the same home life and home preparation for school. That simply is not true.

      The reason isn’t for social justice. The reason is to get
      Title 1$$$. They’re losing the federal $$$ from loss of
      ESOL title 1 immigrant populations. Solution? Dilute
      the paying public percentages by pumping poverty into
      the area. What might have been 10% free meals
      suddenly turns into 45 % free meals.

      Voila!! Instant title 1. At $600 per head, until it goes
      past 40% of students. Then the real money rolls in.

      Message to upper west side: welcome to everybody
      else’s world. How does it feel, you entitled bastards??

    Snopes Is a Sneaky Liar About California’s Bill To Ban Christian LGBT Talk

    Read the bill. There is no religious exemption. There is no restriction to mental health professionals. This is not simply a ‘gay conversion ban.’

    “If you haven’t already lost significant respect for Snopes as an impartial fact-checker, its analysis of a bill that bans all transactions involved in stating Christian beliefs about homosexual behavior should. That bill passed 50-18 on April 19 and is being considered in the state senate. Snopes’ insistence that California Assembly Bill 2943 would not result in the Bible being banned in California is akin to Snopes calling “demonstrably and clearly false” the claim that Joseph Stalin killed everyone around him.

    True, Stalin did not kill “all” around him. Indeed, so far as we know he never personally killed anyone. But he did have a great many people killed (estimates indicate that he was responsible for the deaths of 20 to 25 million people), sent many others to the Gulag, and generally terrorized both his own country and Eastern Europe for decades.

    Sure, it is virtually impossible that California will immediately attempt to ban the sale of the Bible itself. Not even the hard Left in California has that kind of chutzpah. But citations of Bible verses in the context of declaring homosexual practice and transgenderism to be morally debased could indeed get one into serious trouble with the law if it comes in the context of selling or advertising a product or service. Here are the problems with Snopes’s case….”

    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.

    I see more and more officers w/ tattoos as of late. Thankfully our dept doesn’t allow it
    I realize that it doesn’t reflect on their abilities or dedication I just wish it wasn’t happening.
    If they ruled out those with the tats I’ sure they’d be missing out on a lot of really great officer recruits. So there ya have it. But if they allow facial hair ummm that’s a different story………………
