Monday October 1st – 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 TGP, there’s a story of a model and social media star in Iraq. She was shot in the head several times while sitting in her Porche. Apparently she violated Islamic modesty law.

    Now people are really upset by this for some reason. All cultures are equal. It’s wrong for people to get offended by this or to make negative comments about the attacker or his religion. This is all just Fatwa shaming.

        Well – let me see – they blame God for everything that does not go their way – ignore His commandments – slander and bear false witness against their neighbor – evil is good – and good is evil – so guess they will continue to hate God –


        • smiley says:

          they’ll turn on each other…a time of pure hate & wickedness & panic…Believers won’t be around to blame any more…or to help them.

          no more scapegoats.

          no more more twitter…no more texting or gaming…

          all hell breaks lose.

          …and it’s not like they weren’t warned.

  12. Verdict watch in the Jessica Chambers murder trial.
    At this point reports are that it sounds like it will be a another mistrial. Also apparently a member Quinton Tellis family is accused and expected to be charged for taking a photo of the jury and posting on social media.

    Take a break from the Kavanaugh (scripted) circus and read some hard truth from Ron Paul:

    This week we witnessed the horrible spectacle of Nikki Haley, President Trump’s Ambassador to the United Nations, joining a protest outside the UN building and calling for the people of Venezuela to overthrow their government.

    “We are going to fight for Venezuela,” she shouted through a megaphone, “we are going to continue doing it until Maduro is gone.”

    This is the neocon mindset: that somehow the US has the authority to tell the rest of the world how to live and who may hold political power regardless of elections.

    After more than a year of Washington being crippled by evidence-free claims that the Russians have influenced our elections, we have a senior US Administration official openly calling for the overturning of elections overseas.

    Imagine if President Putin’s national security advisor had grabbed a megaphone in New York and called for the people of the United States to overthrow their government by force!

    At the UN, Venezuela’s President Maduro accused the Western media of hyping up the crisis in his country to push the cause for another “humanitarian intervention.” Some may laugh at such a claim, but recent history shows that interventionists lie to push regime change, and the media goes right along with the lies.

    Remember the lies about Gaddafi giving Viagra to his troops to help them rape their way through Libya? Remember the “babies thrown from incubators” and “mobile chemical labs” in Iraq? Judging from past practice, there is probably some truth in Maduro’s claims.

    I came across this obscure, short article in The Portland Tribune newspaper, a bi-weekly publication. It made me so glad I don’t live in Portland and pay all the extra taxes they pay on top of all the state taxes we are burdened by.

    “Portland-only taxes highlighted

    The Taxpayers Association of Oregon has purchased Voters Pamphlet pages against Metro’s $652.8 million affordable housing bond, the Portland Clean Energy Fund, and the public campaign finance plan.

    Among other things, they note that Portland residents and businesses already pay taxes no one else does, including the arts tax, the 10-cent gas tax, a land-line phone tax, a tax on car-share rides, and a $35 per-car vehicle tax.”

    I am looking for a Keurig, but I refuse to pay full price…So I go to the local Goodwill shop. They had some really cool peddle pushers, IZOD, and they were my size… When I got home, I stuck my hand in the front left pocket and pulled out a crisp $20.. woot woot.. No Keurig… but some burger and beer money!!!

    And where is the demand that the Ten Commandments be adhered to or Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount?

    At the UN, OIC foreign ministers adopt statement demanding respect for Islam
    September 29, 2018 by Robert Spencer

    This is a call for the non-Muslim world to adopt Sharia blasphemy laws, and refrain from criticism Islam or Muhammad. The West is either going to do that or stand up and defend the freedom of speech as the foundation of any free society. But which it is going to choose at this point is by no means clear.

  17. The second trial of Quinton Tellis in the Jessica Chambers murder is now a second mistrial😢

    Very busy Monday. This happened today too, this soldier received a Medal of Honor today at the White House. I haven’t been able to find out any more information, as to who he is and what he did that he received this today, he did make a brief statement after the ceremony, and that’s all our local news had, not even his name. Goodness, our press can be so empty-minded. He looks truly humble in this short statement.

        I believe this inevitable ending began in the Mid 90’s (95-97??). “Neutron Jack” decided that GE would shift from 75% Manufacturing/25% Services to 25% Manufacturing/75% services. I worked for a small contracting firm that was bought by GE to help increase that Services ratio. We lost most of our long term customers due to the added “GE Tax” we had to include in all the bids.

        How does a manufacturing company survive that does not “make” anything? Based on the stock price, I suppose that they don’t.

  22. So I have this “scheme” running around in my head. Still trying to work out all the details and logistics, but it gives something to contemplate that does not involve heavy equipment and assorted Congressional “Committees”.

    So I was thinking, yes a most dangerous thing for me, that if somehow I could arrange for at least 2 people from each “county equivalent” in the country to assemble in DC. (3,142 county equivalents in the US, x 2 = 6,284 people, or a slightly oversized Brigade.)

    Now this group would need to be very passionate Right to Bear Arms supporters. My understanding is that the “secondary” purpose for the 2nd Amendment was to ensure that We The People would have the means necessary to deal with a extra-constitutional government in the event the voting process was to become corrupted.

    We would have placards that read “Remember Who You Work For” and other similar type slogans attached to a real hardware store pitchfork. (Sylvia has special permission to bring a shovel) We would also include in our statement that “today we comply with all the laws and statutes of Washington, DC concerning the exercise of our 2nd Amendment Rights, but the next time you see us, we won’t be carrying pitchforks. We will have the rest of the group with us and most likely will be disregarding those laws and statutes as you Socialist Uniparty members have been doing for the past 30 some years”.

    Unfortunately, I am not sure I could get a permit with the above reasoning stated. Perhaps if I said we were an Anti-Fascist Group wanting to protest Judge Kavanaugh I would have a better shot. Oh my, seems I left the words “treatment of” after “protest”. My Bad.

    But as soon as the DC bunch saw we were not wearing those cute Pink Hats and carrying signs that said ‘Thou Shall Not Bear False Witness’, I am sure we would be ever so graciously invited to spend some time at the local lockup.

    Like I said, still trying to work out the details so as not to be the “guests” of the Metro and/or Park Police; and not having to have a long Uncle Jed type talk with the Secret Service or Congressional Protective Details.

    Yep, sure does seem like everything “fun” is either illegal, immoral or fattening as of late.

    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.

    This LiveLeak link contains two videos from during the 7.4+ Indonesian earthquake the otehr day.

    Both of them are amazing and terrifying – the ground is not just moving, it’s totally sliding to new places.

    Wait for the radio tower that keeps on standing while it completely relocates.4

    No blood or guts. Just mesmerizing images.

    The power of Mother Nature.

    (The 1st video starts out sideways, but before long it re-orientates correctly).
