Saturday September 22nd – 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 peeked into my garage, hoping my cat trap had worked…. Nope, the box is empty. 😦 The tin foil ball seemed to have moved though… The cat visitors just hide, although occasionally I can see a tiny face staring out from behind a bucket. *sighs
    Terrified, angry kitties…..
    Happy Caturday..

    Flipped my radio on 1100 am this morning (Phoenix) and the Democrat weekly show was broadcast. A “dem” running for some office in AZ called in for “legal advice”. He has torn up his rival’s campaign sign, was caught and wanted to know how to get out of the possible citation/misdemeanor charge. He was justifying this behavior. The ends justifies the means for the alt-left nuts.

      Amazing, yes I’m surprised it got on NBC. I hope a LOT of people saw it. We need to crack down on the rabble-rousers, tougher jail time for Antifa thugs and those who are PAYING them. Americans shouldn’t be afraid to go to a political rally without helmets and tactical gear. We shouldn’t be attacked in public for wearing a MAGA cap. Why isn’t that a HATE CRIME?!? The reason this keeps going on is the punishment isn’t high enough. There especially needs to be consequences for Democrat mayors who tell police to “stand down” and allow antifa to attack and injure those patriots attending permitted, peaceful rallies. There needs to be PAINFUL consequences for those mayors/city leaders and police chiefs. We have Whistleblower protections ~ somebody in those organizations needs to do the right thing.

      Ben Carson: “The fearful part is that good people will be afraid to serve their government. They won’t want to take the chance of their reputation being sullied.”

      Exactly why it’s more important now more than ever the GOP leadership grow a pair & STOP pussy-footin’ around playing nice to the Left. Example would be in how Grassley allowed such BS antics of the Left during the 3 or 4 days of the Kavanaugh hearings. At first, I had thought it well-played by Grassley letting Americans see exactly how foolish they looked. The protesters, Spartacus, the non-stop interruptions, everything that Chuck allowed to play out, at first, I thought this was a genius plan, but now, I see he’s just weak, no backbone to just stand up to the Left. I hope I’m wrong but…sometimes, I just wish…

      I just wish Senator Chuck Grassley would just say to the Dems: “ENOUGH! I’ve been extremely patient in wanting give this women every chance to testify by granting 4 extensions to 5 deadlines & it’s this committee’s belief, and growing more apparent as the mounting evidence becomes clear this ‘Delay Strategy’ of yours is to prolong this process long enough until the midterms in hopes of winning back the House. But I say to you now this has gone on long enough! You not only have stalled & delayed this process numerous times, but, looking back these past thirty plus years of conservative Supreme Court Nominees, you Democrats have employed these same tactics of trying to smear these fine people going back to 1987 when Pres. Ronald Reagan nominated Robert Bork & within 45 minutes of Bork’s nomination to the Court, Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) makes a nationally televised speech in which he declared the now-all-too-familiar-lines the Left still employs to this day; “… women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, and schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution…” The Process of this tactic got a nickname known as “Borked” and they’re trying to “Bork” this nominee as well. Then next, after Reagan’s nominee gets “Borked”, the next Supreme Court opening comes when Pres. George H. W. Bush nominates Clarence Thomas & everyone old enough remembers what happened to him with the filthy(& disproven) Anita Hill’s sexual assault accusations. Clarence Thomas right called thes tactics as a “High-Tech Lynching”:

      (Grassley continues) “It’s my belief that most Americans are beginning to see the obvious patterns here by the Left employing the ‘Smear & Delay’ Tactics leveled at this fine man. You have corrupted so completely this once respected & revered process & not to mention, caused great personal harm to this fine Supreme Court Nominee and his family! Now as Chairman of the Senate Judicial Committee, I will NOT let this charade continue any longer!”

      That’s what I would like to see & hear from Sen. Grassley.

    Thus says my king: Say thou to Harry of England:
    Though we seemed dead, we did but sleep: advantage
    is a better soldier than rashness. Tell him we
    could have rebuked him at Harfleur, but that we
    thought not good to bruise an injury till it were
    full ripe: now we speak upon our cue, and our voice
    is imperial: England shall repent his folly, see
    his weakness, and admire our sufferance. Bid him
    therefore consider of his ransom; which must
    proportion the losses we have borne, the subjects we
    have lost, the disgrace we have digested; which in
    weight to re-answer, his pettiness would bow under.
    For our losses, his exchequer is too poor; for the
    effusion of our blood, the muster of his kingdom too
    faint a number; and for our disgrace, his own
    person, kneeling at our feet, but a weak and
    worthless satisfaction. To this add defiance: and
    tell him, for conclusion, he hath betrayed his
    followers, whose condemnation is pronounced. So far
    my king and master; so much my office.

    What is thy name? I know thy quality.


    Thou dost thy office fairly. Turn thee back.
    And tell thy king I do not seek him now;
    But could be willing to march on to Calais
    Without impeachment: for, to say the sooth,
    Though ’tis no wisdom to confess so much
    Unto an enemy of craft and vantage,
    My people are with sickness much enfeebled,
    My numbers lessened, and those few I have
    Almost no better than so many French;
    Who when they were in health, I tell thee, herald,
    I thought upon one pair of English legs
    Did march three Frenchmen. Yet, forgive me, God,
    That I do brag thus! This your air of France
    Hath blown that vice in me: I must repent.
    Go therefore, tell thy master here I am;
    My ransom is this frail and worthless trunk,
    My army but a weak and sickly guard;
    Yet, God before, tell him we will come on,
    Though France himself and such another neighbour
    Stand in our way. There’s for thy labour, Montjoy.
    Go bid thy master well advise himself:
    If we may pass, we will; if we be hinder’d,
    We shall your tawny ground with your red blood
    Discolour: and so Montjoy, fare you well.
    The sum of all our answer is but this:
    We would not seek a battle, as we are;
    Nor, as we are, we say we will not shun it:
    So tell your master.

    Re; Ford’s acceptance to testify ON THURSDAY

    IMO, Bugs Bunny Chuck Grassley’s repeated surrender to the Ford “team’s” demands has now likely cost a good and decent family man, who has worked hard to be an exemplary judge, his one and only chance to become a member of SCOTUS and handed the treacherous Dems a major victory.

    Ford and her attorney’s will likely flood her interview with numerous unproveable allegations that can not possibly be fully disproven (or proven) until long after the confirmation vote can be enacted due to the Senate rules. It’s unfortunate that this will likely be Grassley’s legacy after all his years of service to his nation. He was played like a fiddle and Kavanaugh’s chances are over.

    This is an absolute disgrace. The Dems made a sap out of naive Grassley’s honorable but misguided intentions.

      I disagree. However….we will see. I’ve seen Grassley hold 16 hour hearings before then call a vote before dismissal. Then TurtleHead could hold the Floor vote on Fri…or Sat. or even Sunday. Then Kavanaugh could be sworn in, and ready Monday morning (Oct.1) when the Supreme Court reconvenes.

      This whole deal is to prevent/stall Kavanaugh getting a vote before the mid-terms, (which might look bad, in their opinion, to the left’s voters, which might mean D’s might not get elected, let alone get their wet-dream of conquering the R and getting being in control)

    Today the Holy and Righteous Ancestors of God, Joachim and Anna are honored. Yesterday was the Nativity of the Most Holy Theotokos and Ever-virgin Mary

    Also, the 200 Fathers of the Third Œcumenical Synod held at Ephesus in Asia Minor in 431 A.D. are commemorated. This Synod refuted the false teachings of Nestorios.

    Among the other Saints honored today is Saint Kieran of Clonmacnois in Ireland. He is regarded as one of the “Twelve Apostles” of Ireland.

    Marc Molinaro needs to get off his posterior and start barnstorming the state (NY). So far he is allowing Cuomo to command the entire stage.
    In reading of this latest attack by Cuomo, I fail to see how a job that Marc’s wife held before they were married, and doesn’t have now, is the classic example of pay-to- play.

    The MSM is all over the “Cuomo is unbeatable, look how well he did in the primary” nonsense.
    Of course he won the primary handily. We already know that the DNC will rig a primary, and we already know that Albany politics are corrupt.
    What people seem to be missing, is that the mere fact that Cuomo has been primaried shows how vulnerable he is.

    This is Marc’s race to lose. He’d better forget the polls, forget the MSM, forget the Republicans and the experts, and take to the streets. Go directly to the voters of New York.

    The nerve of Andrew Cuomo talking about pay-to-play. The nerve of the media not calling him out for it.
    BTW, Andrew does not have to file financial disclosure forms for his housemate, as they are not married.
    This is a loophole in many of our laws, which needs to be addressed.

    Sick, disgusting practice authorized by a filthy ideological tenet…but for the Connecticut Senate to basically say it’s OK to mutilate women…wow, talk about dhimmi status willingly accepted!

    Connecticut Senate rejects bill making female genital mutilation a felony
    September 22, 2018 by Robert Spencer

    This is a major setback for human rights in general and women’s rights in particular, and the only coverage is in a letter to the editor. And so we don’t know why the Connecticut Senate rejected this bill, but it is likely that it was lobbied by certain constituencies that argued that it would be “Islamophobic.”

    FGM is mandated in Islamic law: “Circumcision is obligatory (for every male and female) (by cutting off the piece of skin on the glans of the penis of the male, but circumcision of the female is by cutting out the bazr ‘clitoris’ [this is called khufaadh ‘female circumcision’]).” — Umdat al-Salik e4.3, translated by Mark Durie, The Third Choice, p. 64

      There is only one purpose for it ~ to make sure sex is always painful for women (depending on how the scar tissue forms). Abraham did not call for circumcision for women, only men (they claim Abraham as their father). A vile and cruel torture of children, as if their rape ( “marriage”) wasn’t enough. Degenerates.

    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.
