Thursday June 7th – 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 †

    Violence in Mexico Leads Mine to Scale Back Operations

    A Mexico business council conceded that high levels of violence had become one of the greatest obstacles for economic activity.

    “MEXICO CITY (AP) — Canada’s Pan American Silver Corp. said it is cutting back operations at its mine in northern Mexico due to safety concerns, the latest in a series of major businesses that have been frightened off by unsafe conditions in Mexico….

    ….The council said “the high levels of violence have become one of the greatest obstacles for economic activity.”

    The council also said that highway robberies of freight transport had doubled in the first quarter of 2018. And on Monday, the national railway regulatory agency said thieves were targeting train shipments, often by prying up pieces of track or blocking the rails.

    “Crime is resulting in the loss of jobs in Mexico, and a deteriorating perspective for global investment in Mexico,” the business council wrote.

    Last week, one of Mexico’s largest food products companies, Lala, announced that it had suspended operations at a distribution center in Ciudad Mante, in the northern border state of Tamaulipas, for security reasons since May 3…”

        wouldn’t that make Mexico a National Security risk? (giggle) and I believe our President can commandeer funds and manpower to build the wall in that case…

        Aus-Mom and DepIo-Infidel, thanks.
        The absence of The Wall these-lo-many-years allowed grave hurt to Mexico and deep harm to USA. If we had a strong fence (border security) with our neighbor then the USA would’ve had much smaller drug problems, and Mexico would NOT HAVE DRUG CARTELS that are ready to take over by armed revolution.

        If The Wall is fully built it will be the anvil on which the hammers destroy the cartels. The hammers are the Mexican military and US military, working together. To further survive, after the cartels are destroyed, Mexico will have to allow their population the opportunities of middle-class prosperity. Many citizens will be returned from the USA.

        And Yep, Mexico will pay for The Wall.

    Why is nobody questioning this?
    Ray McGovern explains why the download/copy at the DNC on July 5, 2016 could not have been a hack — by the Russians or by anyone else. It was more likely John Brennan

    “The conclusions of the intelligence community with respect to the Russian hacking were not conclusive as to whether WikiLeaks was witting or not in being the conduit through which we heard about the DNC e-mails that were leaked”
    Obama Jan 18 2017

    “Most crucially of all Obama refers to ‘The DNC emails that were leaked.’ Note ‘leaked’ and not ‘hacked.’
    William Binney, former Technical Director of the NSA, has asserted that were it a hack the NSA would be able to give the precise details down to the second it occurred

    RE: The Volcano Eruption (El Fuego) in Guatemala

    I’m relatively new here in the Treeper community, but some of you may know me from elsewhere in the conservative blogosphere. Mr. BG & I drove from South Florida to Guanacaste, Costa Rica and back in the Spring/Summer of 2010. One of the places we heard about, by word of mouth when we were on the road, is Antigua, Guatemala. So we made a little detour and visited for about a week. Unbeknownst to us beforehand, we were travelling during the Easter Break, which is a huge deal in the Catholic Countries in Central America. So, we had a bit of an issue finding accommodations.

    This was the case on the approach to Antigua, Guatemala. We stopped at the Reunion Golf Resort, it was positively gorgeous. Alas, no room at the inn, which was fine, we really preferred NOT staying in big, Americanized hotels/resorts. This place, however, was right at the base of El Fuego volcano (I have a photo I took of these twin peaks, which is pretty much the same photo everyone takes…I’m sure you’ve seen one exactly like mine. But if you look at this link, which is for the resort, you can see in some of the “view” photos, how stupidly close they are to El Fuego.

    In this link, you can see the “slide” photos of the surrounding area, before and after, including the damage done to this particular resort. I knew exactly where it was the minute I saw the aerial photo.

    Fortunately, Antigua is about 9 miles north of the volcano, and the superheated mud/lava is flowing to the southwest, sparing the beautiful old colonial town (and former capital of Guatemala, but smashed in two huge quakes in the 1700s, when the government moved the capital to Guatemala City). Here’s a blog post I did about Guatemala: And then another about our little “whoopsie” on the way home:

    Please pray for the people of Guatemala. This is a tragedy of gigantic proportions for them. Most of the victims are rural and didn’t have much to begin with. And now they have nothing, just what they managed to carry away. They are a very gracious bunch in this area, and were all quite wonderful to these two crazy gringos. In fact, in Antigua, we stayed at an awful student hostel our first night (no running hot water), but the next day we met a local man, who had a lady friend who rented rooms to immersion students and a local cop. We stayed at her house for a week and had a great time, even with my awful Spanish and her non-existent English. Antigua wasn’t damaged, but did receive a substantial dusting of volcanic ash. But it’s still a place I’d highly recommend. And actually, few American tourists there, but many Brits, Kiwis, Aussies, and some other assorted people. Stay away from El Fuego, though!

    I took a stealth trip into enemy territory just to see what our enemies are up to. Could not believe one of the front page articles about VSPGPOTUS and his phone use. They think he should have his phone hacked, remotely, while he is speaking on it, that he is a national security and ‘how on earth is he allowed to get away with this’? I guess they forgot about Soetoro insisting on being allowed to keep his personal Blackberry and Hillary using and destroying multiple cell phones. I was sick just reading some of their nasty comments directed at our Lion. (got the h377 out of there fast before I lost my sanity)

      We don’t have time to waste with the paid anti-Trump haters.

      Listening and reading overseas outside interests online accomplishes nothing. Don’t bother putting yourself thru it.

      Voting season has begun. We need to focus on voting areas that are crooked.

      Simply don’t go there. That’s the best policy. It’s akin to a month in an 1890s insane asylum but without the clarity.

      Being among the brainwashed and vicious is soul-crippling and only for those with calling to help the spiritually lost.

    Remembering the Battle of Midway, which happened June 4-7 1942 (in US time zones). I have attached an image of the USS Yorktown after taking the first hit from Japanese naval aircraft. The turning point of the war in the Pacific.

    Everyone knows Soros is purchasing District Attorneys across the United States and pays Antifa and BLM to beat up Christians, Conservatives, Patriots, burn small businesses and harm police. The old Nazi has been destroying God’s people for a long time. We the People allow Soros to stay in the USA and “donate” $18 billion to his destructive organizations to destroy us.

    We could defend ourselves…..maybe.

    So where is the effort to throw the bum out? At the very least Soros should be inconvenienced.

    The person with the most experience fighting Soros is unfortunately Glenn Beck. Glenn got his clock cleaned and ended up in a Cheetos bag with Mittens Romney and Ted Cruz.

    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.
