Monday June 4th – 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 †

      So whom are YOU referring to? The picture in the article reflecting the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, with a Guard doing his duty to GOD and country, protecting that Tomb, or are you referring to the content of this prayer to God, as it was written in his Bible? Or referring to people of faith who believe in GOD? Was this pictorial picture from a movie called “Poltergeist” depicting that little girl in front of a TV who said that line, “They’re baaack!” in a horrific, demonic way meant as a joke to you? If it was, it’s not so funny! This is the PRAYER to the Lord, God, Almighty, the ONE and ONLY ONE who is KING of KINGS, LORDS of LORDS, and whomever SHALL be KING of KINGS, and LORD of LORDS, forever, and ever, and ever, and ever…..Amen!

          I find it very irritating when obvious-newbies comment regarding another’s comment, when they obviously have no clue, nor have they been following the conversation, nor do they READ the entire comments before commenting. Makes them look like the T-word.

          We have many thousands of lurkers, who will at some point get up the courage to comment the first time…..but they at least usually have read all the comments before they jump into the conversations (yes, we have multiple convos going on here every day)

    Another day, another day without the Inspector General’s report on FBI and DOJ abuse in the investigation of Hillary’s email.

    Speaking of which, Judicial Watch says that 16 pages that the DOJ has on the topic of the Clinton/Lynch tarmac meeting are still being withheld from them, despite FOIA requests (bolstered by court orders).

    Sadly, it seems even with Sessions in charge the DOJ and FBI continue to stonewall and do whatever they can to protect Obama and his minions.

    So, another day of that too.

    Any idea when the next step in any of the Mueller cases is going to happen?
    In the Concord Consulting case Mueller has moved for an indefinite delay. When will we find out of if he gets it? He’ll claim that there is too much secret stuff to let it happen right now, but the truth looks simpler: he never thought anyone from Russia would show up to fight the case, and is completely unprepared. It will be interesting what the judge says.

    The sentencing of Flynn for his guilty plea of lying to the FBI has been postponed twice. I *think* it comes around again in June. The Trump Hater spin on this is that he’s still being enticed into giving evidence, so the sentencing keeps being extended.

    But, a lot of exculpatory information has come in, including the text message from the FBI agent who led the ambush interview which said, quote: “first we f*ck Flynn, then we f*ck Trump”. Is it even possible for a judge to throw out a guilty plea after it is entered, but before sentencing because it’s obvious that the case was corrupt from the get-go. I think we may find out.

    Another day in limbo, with no new Russia Gate / Spy Gate developments.


    • BigMamaTEA says:

      Jackson, there is a Senate Judicial Committee Hearing , next Monday July 11th, @ 2:00pmEST, where the 1st report from the IG on the FBI handling of the Clinton email schedule. You will be able to watch online. (If there is any early release of it, it will be on Friday afternoon/evening (usual document dump day.)

      Oh, and yes, it is possible the Judge can throw out Flynn’s plea, based of Prosecutorial misconduct.

    This is a May 15th introductory speech by Vice Commander Lt. Gen. David Thompson, the D.C. face of the Air Force Space Command. Thought to post it because it’s about what our military is doing with this new Space Force, and shakes the cobwebs out of the mind of spygate and all the other scandals; i.e. some positive things getting done under the radar. It’s about 22 minutes long.

    Starting to enjoy the OIG stuff. Education. Here’s one I found interesting

    Former Pontifical Catholic University Director Sentenced to Prison for Theft
    (Puerto Rico)
    The former purchasing director at Pontifical Catholic University in Puerto Rico
    was sentenced to prison for theft from a federally funded institution. The former
    director used the school’s credit card for unauthorized personal expenses, including
    household utility bills, school tuition, and vacations to destinations including Disney
    World, New York, France, and Canada. To conceal her crime, the former director
    altered and created fictitious credit card statements where she hid her personal
    charges by increasing the amounts of other legitimate charges to the card, or by
    deleting the charges altogether before submitting the statements to the school’s
    finance department for payment. In addition, because the credit card’s limit was
    originally $80,000, the former director forged her supervisor’s signature on letters
    to the credit card company requesting limit increases. This enabled her to charge
    more than $655,400 to the school’s card…..

    So here is some stuff for research, because I know Hillary and Bill had plenty of donors involved in this but the press “investigated” the Panama Papers, so not really sure how to find the data we need to take out Hillary/Bill and the Clinton Foundation for the pay-to-play Hillary did with our enemies…..

      Oh honey, (Donna) I’ve got an entire folder full of data on the Foundation, and the Panama Papers……Charles Ortel is doing a yeoman’s work on the Foundation.
      He’s a very humble, Financial Analyst who’s had a hand in some previous BIG fraud auditing. He’s a bulldog, and has been following/documenting/auditing the trail of the CF for several years.

      Dr. Jerome Corsi, spent two years analyzing the Panama Papers.

      Most likely the majority of criminal investigations will be utilizing these two gentlemen’s (if they aren’t already) research and documentation.

      Donna, here’s a project for YOU!!! Sen. Merkley (D-Retard-OR) is up for re-election in 2020.

      Right now, he is on the Senate tee with a big banner on a stand behind him with the quote that is at the base of the Statue of Liberty, by Emma Lazarus. He is attempting to use that as an excuse for allowing illegals into this Country.

      Emma Lazarus, wrote a poem that won, (she was 14) that helped raise money for what would become the base that the Statue of Liberty sits on.

      These bozos NO NOTHING of History. That poem has absolutely nothing to with persecuted potential immigrants, and certainly has absolutely NOTHING to do will Illegal Immigration, and/or DACA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Can you inform your Senator of the REAL history?!!UGH!


      • BigMamaTEA says:

        Donna, (I’ll find a video cut later) YOUR Sen. Merkley is now claiming that apparently he went to South Texas or somewhere and wasn’t allowed in to see Detention Centers there, particularly the children’s facility, who Merkley is now claiming “Were RIPPED from their parent’s arms, and put in this facility”

        First of all, apparently he didn’t listen 3-4 years ago when one of my then Rep’s Bridenstein did exactly the same thing, and too was denied entry on a Military base.

        Merkley is blaming this on Trump. U.S. Taxpayers are paying for these Detention Centers and most are run by church-affiliated, or church-named (yes, one was called Baptist, but busted as to be appropriating the name) This was Obie’s decision, when the Military finally stood up and said they needed those bases.

        Merkley was referring to these detention centers as “cages.” He apparently was allowed to go into the first facility, which was Processing. He referred to this facility as “cages” also. They are essentially jail cells, yes, some would call them cages. That’s what happens when you break the Law and get arrested.

          I will be happy to explain to him about the poem but Merkley is willfully ignorant.

          He looks like a creepy old man….I wouldn’t let him in to see the children either. This too, is an old trick by the left. They’ve pulled this “we weren’t allowed to see them” trick before. It’s just part of the propaganda, he knew he wasn’t going to be let in. Same old, same old.

          While it’s nice to stay on topic, I don’t believe Sen. Merkley is an honest broker.

          How about this questioning his job performance: Point out how many homeless have increased under Sen. Merkley’s watch. I would really like to know how many are veterans or mother’s with children are living on the street.

          Hepatitis A should be here soon from California, and I think Sen. Merkley should have a strategy to keep it from spreading.

          You see how this goes. It’s like when the dog kills a rabbit and the only way to stop the dog is to hang the dead rabbit around it’s neck, over and over again, until the dog never wants to see another rabbit….ever.

          I want homelessness to be his rabbit…

      You know why Ms. Donna? (I’m sorry, don’t mean to sound like a know-it-all; just been researching this crap for 12 years already}

      Well, in the research I read being done on the Panama Papers….One of the banks that plays a significant role is HSBC Bank. HSBC Bank has been doing a lot of money laundering since it’s inception, laundering money for all types of criminals, from Opium runners in the beginning….to CIA cocaine dollars……to other types of money laundering.

      Guess who prior to his last government position, held a high-ranking position in HSBC bank, and ended up somehow with $6M. bonus when he left to take the government job?
      None other than our James Comey.

    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.

    Patron shot by FBI agent at Colorado nightclub to receive free drinks ‘forever’
