Wednesday August 8th – 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 †

    Ahhhhh…the curse of karma.
    Seems the Chinese are having problems – the growth of their tech industry and the rapid increase in building universities to meet their needs has caused an old problem to pop up – liberal academics.
    The Party/government is pushing reform efforts among intellectuals, students and others in corrosive contact with l;ibewral academic thinkers. They’re pushing the intellectuals to to abandon liberal ideas and bring their ideological and political identities back in line with Party thought.
    Interesting that the Left should be worried anout their own liberal Left – though their Left would be seen as more of a Right…oww oww oww my head hurts.
    I’m betting at some point the transgressors and wrong-thinkers might be reminded of the mid-60s Cultural Revolution, the Red Guards and the millions who were reeducated to death – many of them university professors. Looks like no one can get those damned colleges and universities in line.

      Looks like you can take apartheid out of South Africa but you can’t take apartheid out of the people. Raycissssssssssssss

      (in South Africa) a policy or system of segregation or discrimination on grounds of race.

      Obama must be loving this. The Dutch people no so much….

      I say that when they (the thieves) don’t work the farms they’ve taken over and start starving that we (Americans) don’t send them any aid. Nada. NOTHING.

      I will protest if our government even tries to send them GMO corn…….

    Muslim Congressional candidate Ilhan Omar swore to apparent falsehoods in court, while divorcing her brother
    August 8, 2018 3:26 PM By Robert Spencer

    Despite this compelling evidence of dishonesty, Ilhan Omar will almost certainly be elected to Congress: voting against her would be “Islamophobic.”

      Hubby and I visited the Opera House.

      Just a tour though. We didn’t see a performance.

      Truly beautiful. The entire city is.

      Which is why I am so concerned about the Muslims moving in.

      Very interesting! Excellent photo of the results of old-timey Chinese footbinding, and a discussion of how babies are born with flexible skull bones so they can get through the pelvis (model of a pelvis and skull to demonstrate…) Binding the skulls of babies in the first two years, and also binding with cradleboards, will produce remarkable differences of shape. At the very end, a tease with the Nazca skulls that are very very different from others — could they be aliens? “You could go with this idea and produce a best seller ….but, don’t hold your breath”

      This reminds me of Tim Burchett who welcomed the Bigfoot Convention (another reason I’ll vote for him — not because I believe in Bigfoot but because I believe in a sense of humor)

        I was curious about the DNA tests mentioned in your link. The results are discussed in the link below (Part 1 of 4)
        DNA testing of the baby Paracas was conducted in the Lakehead University lab in Canada, as well as two other labs in the United States. The results that came back showed only one discernible haplogroup present, that of U2e1. This haplogroup is not associated with Native Americans, but WITH proto-Germanic and proto-Balto-Slavic speakers! Contamination has been ruled out.

        This would indicate that the Paracas ancestors that had the haplogroup U2e1 haplogroup did not cross the Bering land bridge with the Native Americans, but likely sailed to the coast of Peru from Europe, the Middle East or possibly India, at least 3000 years ago.

        ~So interesting!!!~
        “The parent Haplogroup of H2a is H2, which, seems to originate in the Caspian Sea area, thus supporting an Armenia/Crimea connection. It is thus plausible that the ancestors of the skull with R2a haplogroup migrated to the coast of Peru, as in Paracas, via the Indian Ocean and then Pacific Ocean between 2000 and 3000 years ago.

        Sarmatians. Two deformed human skulls. Probably dated in the 3rd century BC. Kerch Historical and Archaeological Museum. Autonomous Republic of Crimea. Ukraine.

        The above two skulls are from a museum in Crimea, dated to about 300 BC. They are quite similar in form to some of those found in Paracas.


        Many skulls of an elongated nature found in Romania, which is on the western edge of the Black Sea, and also date from somewhere around 2000 years old. Could they have migrated from Crimea and then spread into Europe?”

        “Again, all pre-Columbian people of the Americas are thought to have been of the haplogroups A, B, C, D and perhaps X, and with three results showing the presence of European ancestry, long before the proposed arrival of said Europeans, especially as far south as Peru, history must be re-written.”

      After reading wondering’s article below and watching this video, I wonder if binding their heads (these different people independent of each other) was a way to achieve what the Paracas ancestors inherited by genetics. We as humans are always striving to have what others have.

    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.

      I live in St. Louis County and I am so ticked about this. We have to pick a party in the primary. I vote Republican, so this was not on my ballot. I didn’t even know about it. So now this BLM guy, who worked with Obama’s justice department and has NEVER prosecuted a case just got elected! There’s no one else running in November, so it’s his. Can someone please tell me how if my life could literally depend on the prosecuting attorney, why I don’t get to vote? I feel so bad for all of the police who couldn’t vote on it either. You had to pick Democrat to vote on this. I am so angry and worried. This is a serious problem. This man is a racist. On his website, he even ran saying that he is apposed to our President. How can a prosecuting attorney, who is supposed to follow the law, say he’s against the President? Also, why is a prosecuting attorney allowed to be biased? I hope someone can explain this to me.

  15. It’s been a rough month or two as a Catholic Canadian. Crisis in the Catholic Church, and a Canadian PM who has two left feet (no wonder his dancing is so atrocious!).

    Anyhow, I was glad to read about this play – a comedy – in a prison in Concord, NH, about PDJT saving the world. It brought a genuine smile to my face, and …as one reader puts it ” Fascinating that Trump “saves the world” in a Concord prison while so many of our fellow citizens are doing everything they can to make this presidency fail.”
