Wednesday October 3rd – 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 โ€

    My thoughts on Kavanaugh may not be popular around here – but here’s my take.

    I don’t have any skin in this game, but for watching the Noonan/Will/Kristol/Graham contingent muscling a Trump nominee into office. What a hoot!

    When I saw Georgie the Younger come out for BK – my skin crawled. I never voted for a Bush or Clinton – believing them both to be crime families. I was a Perot, Perot, Buchanan voter.

    My biggest fear is that BK is just Kennedy lite. If that’s the case, I’ll enjoy the WWF visuals and wait for Trump to name his own uber conservative, knowing the mid terms will favor a BK defeat.

    The side that hates most, bitterest, and loudest will prevail in November – so BK is road kill on the highway which takes back the country. We could do worse.

      I wish there was an edit function – because I didn’t phrase that correctly.
      A BK defeat will insure a victory for the GOP in November – because the side with most blood in their eyes, garners the biggest pool of hate votes.

      If BK wins, the left is energized. If he loses, the GOP goes nuclear for the injured vanilla family and jurist.

      For ardent BK lovers, forgive my indifference to his fate. The mid terms are life or death for My Donald – and if BK becomes road kill – at least he was sacrificed for a cause bigger than all of us.
      The very future of Western Civilization is at stake. So … we need to toughen up.

          Maybe….but I think there is more importance in the R’s keeping majority in the mid-terms.

          I don’t have any midterm that I can change at this point. So, I wrote several campaigns where the incumbent is being challenged by an R better candidate, to find out who’s going to have the set up for phone calls, where I can dial in from Oklahoma and make phone calls in let’s say Michigan for John James vs. Debbie Stabmenow.

          So, if any one hears of any campaign that you’re familiar with…..let me know.

          I did it for Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz for Senate last time, and Gov. Walker through all of his trials/tribs/false accusations I helped TrueTheVote, verify registration data, to help him fight off the challenges from the unions.

        My only concern with “IceMan” Kavanaugh, has been Shrub. (who you call Georgie the younger…..little bush = shrub)

        But I do know, that President Trump did say that at the beginning of the demonrat-shenanigans…..that if the “IceMan” vote failed; he would have another Nominee on TurtleHead’s desk within 2 hours.

        Also, any one who didn’t vote out their RINO in the primary this year……still has to vote for the RINO. (primaries are where you get rid of them) If we lose R control over the House or Senate…….all corresponding investigations of those committees (god or bad)
        go away.

        When TurtleHead’s seat comes up in 2020, (if he runs again) I may have to go spend a couple of weeks in Kentucky during their primary to help someone beat him.

    Yes indeed, Obama endorsing a Latino Socialist for the House and all of these things going on that just drive my mind back to the Weather Underground…coincidence or is everything old be new again.

  12. Democratic staffer arrested in doxxing of GOP senators during Kavanaugh hearing

    A Democratic congressional staffer was arrested Wednesday and accused of posting the personal information of at least one Republican senator during last week’s hearing about sexual assault claims against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, authorities said.

    U.S. Capitol Police said 27-year-old Jackson Cosko was charged with making public restricted personal information, witness tampering, threats in interstate communication, unauthorized access of a government computer, identity theft, second-degree burglary and unlawful entry. Police added that the investigation was continuing and more charges could be filed.

          Your problem, like soooooo many in NOLA after Katrina, was that you ain’t a member of an entitles group. Folks in places like the Lower 9th found themselves SOL as they had no insurance of any kind, many had no legal title to the homes they ‘owned’ and as they hadn’t paid their homeowner taxes in generations (no title, no tax record) there were zero ways to establish ownership.
          In rushes the Feds and low income persons got special deals. Married couples with some ridiculously low income could qualify for a special package of grants, tax breaks and guarantees that would allow them to buy a house far out of what they normally could qualify for. Nothing was ever done to try and collect those back taxes generations delinquent and various groups rushed in to build free techie houses for the poor, downtrodden and traditionally repressed.
          It’s a new world.

    lilbirdee12โ€™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.

    Psalm 91 King James Version (KJV)

    91 He that dwelleth 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 will I trust.

    3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

    4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

    5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

    6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

    7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

    8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

    9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

    10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

    11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

    12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

    13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

    14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath 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 honour him.

    16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

    National Council of Churches

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    (Redirected from National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA)
    National Council of Churches

    Founded 1950
    Website (heh, cant get access to their website…go figure

    The National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA, usually identified as the National Council of Churches (NCC), is the largest ecumenical body in the United States.[1] NCC is an ecumenical partnership of 38 Christian faith groups in the United States. Its member communions include Mainline Protestant, Orthodox, African American, Evangelical, Josephite and historic peace churches. Together, they encompass more than 100,000 local congregations and 40 million adherents.[2] It began as the Federal Council of Churches in 1908, and expanded through merger with several other ecumenical organizations to become the National Council of Churches in 1950.[3]

    If you are not in agreement with the action this organization is taking on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh as Supreme Court Justice let your voice be heard.
