Monday May 14th – 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 †

    GEOMAGNETIC STORMS POSSIBLE LATER THIS WEEK: NOAA forecasters say that polar geomagnetic storms are possible on May 17th when a stream of solar wind reaches Earth. The gaseous material is flowing from a southern hole in the sun’s atmosphere, shown here in a false-color UV image from NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory:

    This is a coronal hole–a place where the sun’s magnetic field opens up and allows solar wind to escape. Coronal holes look dark because hot glowing gas normally contained there is missing.

    Previous encounters with solar wind from this coronal hole suggest that storm levels could reach category G2 when the fast-moving stream arrives, although a lesser G1 storm is more likely.. High latitude sky watchers should be alert for auroras and, of course, STEVE. Free: Aurora Alerts.

    Can someone explain to me why Trump is backing down on ZTE? Trump’s priority should be neutering China, not handing out favors for reigning in North Korea. China’s short term plan is to obtain hegemony over the South China Sea and its long term plan is to topple the US and create New World Order with China as the sole power.

      I am not privy to the President’s thought processes but from where I am, it makes sense and I don’t see it as “backing down”. I am not so much interested in “neutering China” as in leaders being responsible human beings (everywhere, here, and in China also).

      Closed factories with citizens out of work are awful, life-wrenching, large scale and unnecessary human miseries. Decent leaders can work out ways to go around these things so that communities in the U.S. don’t have shuttered factories and mass depression. Communities in China don’t need to be suffering either if leadership is responsible.

      Trump understands that the U.S. citizens need to be able to work and by extension, the same thing in China. You can be that Trump will ask for reciprocal behavior.

      I trust Trump and I don’t think he’s “backing down”. I think he’s making a point that needs to be made, and afterwards everyone is going to be better off on this side of the world and the other side also

    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.

    King James Version (KJV)
    Psalm 58

    Psa 58:1 ¶ [[To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David.]] Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men? Psa 58:2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh the violence of your hands in the earth. Psa 58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb: they go astray as soon as they be born, speaking lies. Psa 58:4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent: they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear; Psa 58:5 Which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charming never so wisely. Psa 58:6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth: break out the great teeth of the young lions, O LORD. Psa 58:7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually: when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces. Psa 58:8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away: like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun. Psa 58:9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, he shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in his wrath. Psa 58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance: he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked. Psa 58:11 So that a man shall say, Verily there is a reward for the righteous: verily he is a God that judgeth in the earth.
