Thursday June 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 †

    My confidence in Sessions took a big hit when he said on Tucker that the accusation of a threat to Congress by Rosy was a misunderstanding. That sounded on its face like BS, but even if it were true, why didn’t he enlighten us to the nature of that so-called misunderstanding? This Sessions/Rosenstein issue with transparency is out of control. Something’s gotta give. Hopefully today or soon.

      My moment above should have been on the daily presidential thread.

        Nope. It’s all good Donzo. Do not be afraid to make a political comment on this open thread.

        (It’s only when treeps were dominating the entire Daily Open thread with back-n-forth that it became a problem!)

          The Senate adjourned today at 4:33pmEST. They will be back on Monday, June 18th at 3pmEST, The vote on the 2019 NDAA should be after 5pm on Monday. (that’s the funding part of the NDAA….which is always a problem because it’s a must-pass, and all the evil ones attempt to put in all kinds of crap into it ! Including…TurtleHead, who has what is called a “managers” amendment in it already!)

    biggest goose egg ever.
    biggest “NOTHING” a total train wreck
    Media reporting, zero in IG’s report, not even finger slapping
    we were so conned again by congressional oversight
    media reports that all are 100% innocent.
    “nothing there” Hillary is an angel….


    • Sentient says:

      “Media reporting”. ’nuff said. Wait for Sundance to give us the run-down. Within two days, Rush Limbaugh and a few others will pick up on it. Eventually anything within the IG report that’s damaging to the Swamp Creatures will come out. MSM has been prepping for this for months. They’re all on their talking points that the IG report is all about “Hillary’s private server” (a yawn inducer at this point).

    I want to call attention to a couple of the comments to a Mark Steyn piece. Those by “Kate Smythe” on 6/13 at 16:00 and “P. Gao” on 6/13 at 12:58.
    They both touch on the issue of NGOs and the profit motive, and also the growing issue of sex-trafficking associated with the “migration” (or as I call it , human trafficking) issue, which is well known but you almost never hear about.
    We still have some holdouts in the MSM, pretending this whole ‘migrants’ thing isn’t what it is, but if more people were aware of the reality about these NGOs and IGOs (the UN is referred to as an IGO) this problem would be stopped in its tracks, as no one would want to contribute to this kind of fraud and criminality.
    The Italians have shown the courage to start the process.

      “human trafficking) issue,”

      Here is a website primarily devoted to issues such as that:

      “….I had to be a voice.

      And I had to help my fellow friends to open their eyes and recognize what they have been told to was not the truth.
      Why are we dealing with unnecessary issues like Transgender agenda, White Supremacy, Feminism, Dissolving borders and etc. which were nonexistent before 2001?….”

    Funny how the Washington Post and Bloomberg got the IG report before it’s official release.

      Not really, Judiciary……At least not when you consider that this report has been floating around the FBI & DOJ for a couple of weeks now, subject to rebuttal. Which to me means, it’s swampy.
      When I found that out a couple of weeks ago……well, let’s say this is still the swamp investigating the swamp.

      Any report that could be rebutted & or changed prior to it’s potential perps (!)….has lost most of its credibility with me before it’s released. We’ll see what comes from it.


  7. Judiciary says:

    Watching Fox with Cuvuto interviewing Ashley Pratt of U.S. News & World Reports who seems an anti-Trump “resist” person. She keeps wrenching the IG Report discussion not as what to expect so much as how she thinks President Trump will try to spin it to make him look good. She of course isn’t challenged one iota by Cavuto who I used to like way back.

    All That Jazz

    A new documentary explores the Jewish origins of Blue Note Records, but evades some tough questions

    “Blue Note Records has produced music from the greatest names in jazz: Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Art Blakey, Bud Powell, Horace Silver, Cannonball Adderley, Dexter Gordon, Ornette Coleman, Herbie Hancock, and Wayne Shorter. A new documentary by Swiss filmmaker Sophie Huber, Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes, had its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this spring and is currently playing the festival circuit. …”

    Bidnezz as ushul in Da Big Sleazy – Eddie Jordan, first African-American to be elected District Attorney in Orleans Parish and appointed (by Clinton) US Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana – is under investigation afrer being caught passing contraband to an inmate of the parish prison INSIDE THE COURTROOM. Now this guy ain’t no correspondence course attorney, he’s a graduate of Wesleyan and Rutgers Universities so he should have no questions about the legality of passing contraband to inmates…never mind that ‘inside the courtroom’ thing.
    He was just tagged a hour or so ago and prelim reports are that the contraband was of a ‘controlled substance’ nature. Right now there are a number of considerations in effect, including his political connections with big players inside of the parish, including the sheriff whose deputy caught Eddie and in whose jail he’d reside AND including the current parish DA whose honesty is being questioned by even the prog media in town.
    Let’s see how this plays out as there are deep political considerations at play. Jordan was the one who successfully prosecuted infamous Louisiana ex-governor Eddie Edwards while refusing to prosecute black political fellow-traveler Cleo Fields who was caught on tape stuffing wads of cash int his pockets Edwards was offering as bribes. Will the black political mafia swseep this under the rug like they do so many other cases or will he get the same consideration a non-connectee would?

      BTW, Jordan resigned after taking office and immediately firing 54 white employees in the DA’s office. They sued as he never could come up with a reason that didn’t smell like a pigsty and it cost his office over $3-million in EEO-based compensation.
      There was also the incident where a gentleman involved in a home invasion and shooting of a police officer ran to his house for protection as Jordan was dating the shooter’s ex-girl friend.
      Sad thing is that kind of stuff isn’t shocking or unusual in NOLA politics.

      Ah yes, Rodrigue…sed to go by his gallery in the Quarter to look – didn’t have enough pockets to carry the cash it would have taken to buy one of his pieces. Sorta like how it was to eat at Paul Prudhomme’s place before about 1984.

    That botox & steroid pumped coocoo bird from Cali said today. “I just don’t even know why there aren’t -> uprisings <- all over the country…" in aggression against Washington. This sideways attempt by Pelosi to overthrow the government lies somewhere between sedition and treason. (Though some leftist lawyer would likely find her a loophole and keep her from the hangman's noose.)

    First attempt and just using my email address to get in for now. Hoping the open thread is the right place to do this. I realize this is a bad day to take the plunge, so I won’t intrude on the big news stuff yet.
    Anyway, I’ve been reading the articles and comments here almost daily for quite a while, so I feel like I know most if not all of the regulars. I don’t comment much elsewhere due to the heavy troll invasion of late, so hoping for the best here.
    I am just Chuck (no avatar) on disqus. I have seen somebody here named Chuck so I’ll work with Chuck2 for now.

    Watching CBS whining and crying about the Brownsville, Tx center that houses the illegal Immigrant Latino children.
    First ‘complaint’ was that it’s built in an abandoned Walmart – so what’s the bitch, should have been an abandoned Forever 21? Then the cameras showed the desperate conditions the children live in: martial arts classes, telephones, video games, TV, movies, recreation areas and such. They paled over these children receiving medical care, schooling, dental care, and other viral services I’m sure didn’t measure up to the high standards of care and services the received in the home countries.
    Horror of horrors! They showed the children at feecding time scarfing down such Ethiopian starvation rations as hamburgers larger than Big Macs, plates of food piled high – asgain probably not up to the cultural tucker and quantitiers they had in their homelands. And it appears – GASP – they are allowed to get snacks between meals!!!! Oh the humanity of it, will this abuse of children yearning to breathe free and vote Democrastic never cease?!

    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.
