Monday June 18th – 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 †

    I’m posting this here, it’s long but brings the current criminal treasonous weasels to mind .. read if you wish … scroll past if you’d rather …

    Galatians 6:7
    7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

    Job 18
    Bildad: The Wicked Are Punished
    18 Then Bildad the Shuhite answered and said:
    2 “How long till you put an end to words?
    Gain understanding, and afterward we will speak.
    3 Why are we counted as beasts,
    And regarded as stupid in your sight?
    4 You[a] who tear yourself in anger,
    Shall the earth be forsaken for you?
    Or shall the rock be removed from its place?
    5 “The light of the wicked indeed goes out,
    And the flame of his fire does not shine.
    6 The light is dark in his tent,
    And his lamp beside him is put out.
    7 The steps of his strength are shortened,
    And his own counsel casts him down.
    8 For he is cast into a net by his own feet,
    And he walks into a snare.
    9 The net takes him by the heel,
    And a snare lays hold of him.
    10 A noose is hidden for him on the ground,
    And a trap for him in the road.
    11 Terrors frighten him on every side,
    And drive him to his feet.
    12 His hstrength is starved,
    And destruction is ready at his side.
    13 It devours patches of his skin;
    The firstborn of death devours his [b]limbs.
    14 He is uprooted from the shelter of his tent,
    And they parade him before the king of terrors.
    15 They dwell in his tent who are none of his;
    Brimstone is scattered on his dwelling.
    16 His roots are dried out below,
    And his branch withers above.
    17 The memory of him perishes from the earth,
    And he has no name [c]among the renowned.
    18 [d]He is driven from light into darkness,
    And chased out of the world.
    19 He has neither son nor posterity among his people,
    Nor any remaining in his dwellings.
    20 Those [e]in the west are astonished at his day,
    As those [f]in the east are frightened.
    21 Surely such are the dwellings of the wicked,
    And this is the place of him who does not know God

      “read if you wish”

      1Timothy 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to READING, to exhortation, to doctrine.

      I certainly will. It is not good to avoid reading the word of God.

      1Thessalonians 2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.

    I’m not sure of the significance of this, but I’ve been reading the book about Theranos (“Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup” by John Carreyrou of the WSJ). I’ve followed this casually for several years, and so I knew that they boasted of board members such as George Schultz, Henry Kissinger, and other well-known people across the political spectrum.

    In one of the later chapters (and I haven’t finished the book yet), Carreyrou describes how he became involved in writing a story about this. When he had amassed a fair amount of damning evidence, he wanted to talk to Elizabeth Holmes to get her side. Rather than meeting with her, on June 23, 2015 Theranos sent a group of individuals to the offices of the WSJ to apparently do their best to intimidate them. The person in charge of this effort was David Boies (name sound familiar?), whose name is sprinkled all over the book. The best I can do is to simply quote verbatim the first paragraph of chapter 21:

    “The Theranos delegation that came to the Journal’s offices was made up of mostly lawyers. Leading the pack was David Boies. He was flanked by Mike Brille, Meredith Dearborn, and Heather King, a former Boies Schiller partner and Hillary Clinton aide who had become Theranos’s [sic] general counsel less than two months earlier. Rounding out the group were Matthew Traub and Peter Fritsch, a former Journal reporter who was the co-founder of an opposition research firm in Washington, D.C. The lone Theranos executive was Daniel Young.”

    Don’t know yet if Fritsch’s name comes up again in any later chapters, but his involvement in this meeting was never described other than that he was there. I also wonder why Carreyrou failed to simply say Fritsch co-founded Fusion GPS. He can’t exactly argue that would be a name his readers wouldn’t be familiar with.

    It’s clear from the book that Theranos was surveilling current and former employees, and I think it’s a good bet that Fusion GPS was enlisted to dig up dirt on them.

      Don’t discount the possibility that Fusion was involved for years shaping public opinion in favor of the supposed $10B magic blood test. Media for sale is what they do, for money as well as power.


    • Crimso says:

      He does note Fritsch’s connection to Fusion GPS as well as the dossier in the end notes. Also, Boies ended up serving on the board of directors, and I had forgotten to note above that Mad Dog was also one of the directors!

    Here’s a somewhat eggheady but short article about PC: “What It’s All About: Coercion”
    Interesting because it is written by a Liberal Democrat. A Northeastern Liberal Elite Democrat.

    “PC is literally thought-policing. It’s hard to imagine anyone being in favor of that, which is exactly why PC behavior is so odious to those of us who value free speech.”

    His contention is that PC is the means of conveyance of identity politics.
    The coercion part refers to how the thought police enforcers will shut down your ability to make a living in order to ensure compliance.

    Some liberal types still don’t get it. Today it’s Ann Coulter or Milo getting the treatment, tomorrow it could be you, or someone you love, who runs afoul of the censors.
    Remember, allowable thought ‘evolves’ and can turn on a dime.
    The view that everyone holds today, could be criminalized tomorrow, and it only takes one person ti make the change.

    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.

    Watching rerun of OIG congressional testimony after work. 15 min in and i gotta wonder what would happen if Sundance, Rex, Chillum, Brian Crates, and a few others were able to ask questions.

    Able to notice all the questions so far are written by staff when the Senators are asking questions and a light bulb kinda lights up for em as they’re reading. Humerous if it wasn’t so sad. ):
    Sen Leahy can’t even recall his own questions from the previous hearing he HAD to read and reread his question to Horowitz and Wray. WTF!
