Wednesday June 20th – 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 the IG went to great lengths to recover the text where Strzok says “he’ll stop it”. The question I have is…how did he know there was a missing text?

    Islamic Propaganda and Religious Beliefs
    New Jersey Middle School Instructs Students Islam Is the “True Faith” – Thomas More Law Center Files Federal Lawsuit (Libby Hilsenrath against the Chatham, New Jersey School District and various district employees)

    This is the film which the school district is using as introduction to Islam: https://vimeo.com/252231316/45e5c86977

    Because of Mrs. Hilsenrath’s attempts to persuade the School District of the Chathams to remove the videos and stop the Islamic indoctrination of her son and the other seventh-grade students at the Chatham Middle School, she has been subjected to a barrage of vicious personal attacks.

    Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of TMLC, noted, “Witless school officials have converted classrooms across America into Islamic indoctrination centers. These schools do not educate, they propagandize. Under the guise of teaching social studies courses, teachers promote the religion of Islam in ways that would never be legally allowable for Christianity or any other religion. Because the explicitly stated goal of Muslim leaders and organizations is to dominate America by a ‘civilization jihad,’ these schools collude with them to jeopardize our national security.”

    Thompson added, “To protect our children and our Nation from the insidious Islamic propagandizing going on in our public schools, courageous parents like Libby Hilsenrath must take the time to know exactly what their children are being taught, and if it’s Islamic propaganda, take action to stop it.”

      Please notice (especially) verses 12- 15:

      2Timothy 3:10 ¶ But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
      11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.

      12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

      13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
      14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
      15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
      16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
      17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

    Can someone explain to me the relationship between breitbart.Com and theconservative treehouse.com?

      They are both websites that tend to be preferred by individuals with conservative tendencies.

      There is no relationship. Sundance’s reference is to the man Andrew Breitbart, not to the website bearing his name. The Last Refuge/The Conservative Treehouse admires Andrew Breitbart’s tenaciousness and fearlessness in presenting the antidote to leftist philosophy. That antidote is knowledge, truth and political activism in presenting the Conservative philosophy.

    FAST-GROWING SUNSPOT: Yesterday, sunspot AR2715 did not exist. Today, it sprawls across more than 60,000 km of solar surface with a primary dark core wider than Earth. Philippe Tosi photographed the growing active region from his backyard observatory in Nîmes, France:

    “The seeing was good and I also caught a minor solar flare arcing between the sunspot’s two main cores,” says Tosi.

    NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) is monitoring this region, and latest images from SDO show the sunspot continuing to grow. The cycle of sunspot genesis, so far, may be seen in this 24-hour movie.

    This is a “Solar Minimum sunspot.” In recent months, sunspot numbers have plummeted as the solar cycle shifts toward a deep minimum. On more than half of the days so far in 2018, the face of the sun has been completely blank without any sunspots at all. Even during Solar Minimum, however, big sunspots pop up from time to time–hence, AR2715. We will monitor this region carefully and post frequent updates about its potential for flares. Stay tuned.

    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.

    So I have been letting the recent statement made by “Senator” Schumer run through my mind for a bit. To me, it seemed a bit out of place for a sitting US Senator to advocate for the President to enact and/or modify law by “Executive Fiat”. And it seemed even more out of place that we have not heard any kind of serious rebuttal of the statement by other members of the current Congress.

    Why not??

    The only reasonable explanation that I am able to surmise is that Mr. Schumer has admitted to what many of us thought was some kind of whacko tin foil hat theory. He is demanding that the President issue the “fiat” in order to comply with the wishes of the Menshevik’s currently occupying positions of “power” to finalize the conversion of this country to a Socialist State.

    Previous attempts by this President to issue Executive Orders concerning immigration resulted in lawsuits meant to prevent the President from ensuring the law was enforced as required of him by the constitution. And no consequence has been placed on those that attempted to block the President.

    The FBI laid out numerous charges against Hillary Clinton concerning the mis-handling and unauthorized dissemination of classified information; yet came to the publicly announced ‘conclusion’ that no crime was committed. Again, no consequence has been placed upon either party.

    No consequence has been assigned to the Clinton Foundation for accepting Foreign “donations” while Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State. Even though an agreement was made with the US Senate that the CF would not solicit such contributions.

    And there continues to be an “investigation” concerning a non-existent crime (collusion) based on a libelous document that was paid for in part by both Democrat and Republican sources. The intent of said investigation, at least according to what I make of the Strock/Page transcripts, is to hinder if not outright prevent the President from performing his duties. And still no consequence has been assigned to those involved.

    We have seen at least 5 State Governors refuse to send their National Guard troops to the US-Mexico boarder in order to support the “Defense of the Homeland” requirements placed on the Department of Defense.

    We have seen several members of the “entertainment” community make very public statements wishing harm to the President and his family. Again, no consequences.

    We have seen the general media make false and misleading statement pertaining to policies the President is attempting to implement. We have seen the media intentionally release “confidential” information provided to them by individuals within our government that was known to be false and misleading but was presented as fact. Again, no consequences.

    I have seen that approximately 62,000,000 people voted for President Trump. If the assumption of a particular group of people does hold true, that would provide approximately 1,860,000 people willing to assist the President in assigning extreme prejudice to the parties described above.

    I would be most proud and honored to be counted among that number should the need arise.

    After reading a lot of comments on another thread about the state of churches today, I am realizing more and more how blessed I am to be able to worship where I do.
    This evening I attended a prayer meeting. A member of the congregation broke down the parable about the widow and the judge in Luke 18.
    I’m beginning to get it, the importance of prayers in church.
    It was nice to hear prayers for the current situation at the border, that did not condemn our president but asked for wisdom for him to deal with it. Thee statement was made, “we don’t know what the right thing is, but you do”.
    That’s true, God knows what the right thing for our president to do is, and there are churches full of people praying for President Trump, and not fooled by the media/political circus surrounding this issue.

      SMH That is almost as bad as the illegal Mexican who was sitting on his front porch raping a puppy. (Don’t ask, I have no idea. 😯 ) But, the really strange part was when the cops came he was surprised that they thought he was doing anything wrong. :\

    Brace for more Black Lives Matter race riots
    From what I see in the video thus one rally does look bad on the police unless their video shows the runners turning back toward them to shoot. But news reports, fir west they are worth, are saying no gun on the runners

      About the 10 sec mark video loops restarts and we see two riders from the car exit the vehicle and start to run away when shots ring out.

      They do not appear to be a threat at that moment of the shooting. As usual, they were not obeying orders and following directions. They were in a car suspected to have driven by people who shot someone just a little earlier.
