Friday September 7th – 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 †

    Shocking Footage Shows Iranian Consulate In Basra, Iraq Exploding In Massive Blaze

    On Thursday evening Iran’s consulate in Basra was placed under siege by a throng of demonstrators after a 24-hour period in which a dozen local Shia militia HQ offices and buildings were torched across the city. Mass protests and riots have grown in the city since Monday.

    The same night in Baghdad, regional sources indicate at least three mortars targeted the US embassy in Baghdad’s protected ‘green zone’ landing near the gate but not causing significant damage. The events were part of a worsening sectarian crisis across the country in which pro-Iran Shia forces have vowed to expel “foreign occupying forces” — however in the Sunni-majority southern city of Basra, Sunni groups have been engaged in mob reprisal attacks.

    Moments ago as evening descends on Iraq, Al Arabiya and other regional sources report a large group of demonstrators have now stormed the Iranian consulate at the end of Thursday overnight and daylong Friday protests.

    Anyone else think that op-ed piece is just another bluff from the Soros/establishment crowd aimed at causing paranoia in the Trump administration and doubt among voters?

    I don’t do twitter (so can’t retweet this), but thought I’d pass this along here if anyone wants to help out. It’s a fundraiser for a youngster paralyzed in a high-school football game.

      What a maroon……snicker.

      Senator Spartacus. Oh the hubris, the unmitigated gall, the delusions of grandeur. The hilarious spectacle these overblown Globalist egos make of themselves.

    MomaTea, I posted about this on the thread about Papadopoulos getting sentenced today.

    Do you remember when Mrs. Papadopoulos was spotted in a picture with some other females and that call girl, Anastasia Vashukevich (seen on a yacht allegedly belonging to oligarch Oleg Deripaska). Remember, the female she was Oleg Deripaska’s call girl or mistress she got locked up in a Thai jail. I thought it was here on the open thread, a poster compared the pics of Anastasia Vashukevich and some of Oleg’s other girls and one looked exactly like Mrs. Papadopoulos.

    What ever came of that?

    This is sad. Although I do not care much for the Kennedy dynasty, they do seem to have a higher than average amount of tragedy in their lives:
    Or maybe it’s just that they attract so much attention when they do.

    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 read that baseball’s Baltimore Orioles will be sporting uniforms with the lettering in Braille! I’m guessing it’s for a special occasion like teams do with “throwback” uniforms, pink threads for breast cancer awareness, camo for honoring our military, and on down the line. I know they mean well by this gesture. Perhaps it will get those fans with sight to get involved in aiding the cause, either financially or by volunteering their time. Other than that, I can’t really understand how the lettering actually helps the blind. Kind of like the store window sign that says, “No pets allowed…except seeing-eye dogs!” Who benefits by reading that sign? Neither the blind man nor the dog can read it! The Braille lettering on the jerseys don’t appear raised so they could be felt with the fingertips. Again the question, who exactly benefits? Insert umpire joke here!

    Psalm 91 New King James Version (NKJV)

    Safety of Abiding in the Presence of God
    91 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
    Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
    2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
    My God, in Him I will trust.”
    3 Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler
    And from the perilous pestilence.
    4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
    And under His wings you shall take refuge;
    His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
    5 You shall not be afraid of the terror by night,
    Nor of the arrow that flies by day,
    6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness,
    Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday.
    7 A thousand may fall at your side,
    And ten thousand at your right hand;
    But it shall not come near you.
    8 Only with your eyes shall you look,
    And see the reward of the wicked.
    9 Because you have made the Lord, who is my refuge,
    Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
    10 No evil shall befall you,
    Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
    11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
    To keep you in all your ways.
    12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
    Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
    13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
    The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
    14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
    I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
    15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble;
    I will deliver him and honor him.
    16 With long life I will satisfy him,
    And show him My salvation.”

    Psalm 27:1 New King James Version (NKJV)
    An Exuberant Declaration of Faith
    A Psalm of David.

    27 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
    Whom shall I fear?
    The Lord is the strength of my life;
    Of whom shall I be afraid?
