Wednesday July 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 †

    On Senate tee-vee….they are now taking a Cloture (limit debate to no more than 30 hrs) Vote on a 9th Circuit Judge…..

    FYI: Why are these “Circuit Judges” important?…… The Circuit Courts are the United States Courts of Appeals, and are the Intermediate Appellate Courts of the United States Federal Court System.

      Now, where could this come into play for an upcoming Senate election? Manchin (WV) is a perfect example. He’s a fence-rider. Today he voted NO on the 5th Circuit nomination, and just voted No on the Cloture Vote for the 9th.

      Why would he do that? His state is in the 4th Circuit, yet he is attempting to deny states that are more conservative/Constitutional, (or that we would like to see more so, at least as far as Appellate Courts go) Trump’s ability to at least get more Constitutional Judges on the Courts.

      This shows what side of the fence Manchin is really on. Court appointments can swing the pendulum for decades.

    Apparently the House Dems weren’t happy with the “Better Deal” slogan they floated last year.

    O.K……… CLOTURE APPROVED on Ryan Bounds, from Oregon, US Circuit Judge 9th Circuit.

    Y- 50 – N- 49.

    Now, Markley (Dumbazz-OR) is screaming about “children in cages” again. Uh, apparently he has legislation to protect the “2,500” children, he wants on the Floor. (Is that the illegal children with or without their real parents? No sarc here. Border Patrol is doing DNA tests. There are some number who are not with a parent!!!

    DrudgeReport has Rasmussen with President Trump’s approval down to 44%, and bookies saying the odds of impeachment are going up, i.e. the Dems get the House and Senate in November.

    Fake news? Or too early before the election, so who cares? 🙂

    Hi American friends and Patriots. This is your Israeli friend.
    I stand with Trump and you!
    The latest attack on Trump will pass and you will defeat the Democrats better than before.
    There are strong parallels to the situation in Israel. The Liberals and Media against the majority of the people. They can’t win in this age of internet media and awareness.

      Thanks, David! No one ever said that making America great again was going to be easy. We have a champion in President Donald J. Trump. He won’t let us down. He’s already given so much for the citizens of America, and has taken so many arrows of hate (which are aimed at us patriots, too). The falsehoods against him are abundant, but we are never going to cease our support. We will absolutely not let HIM down.

    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.
