Wednesday October 17th – 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 †

    Great potato tips from Farmers’ Almanac and commenters. I’ve used the instant mashed potatoes as a soup/stew thickener and also used them for baking. In King Arthur Flour’s recipes you can use them in lieu of potato flour for baked goods and I have done so. And… among my favorite foods are mashed potatoes w/gravy and french fries.

      “Lucifer – The Mentor of Saul Alinsky and the American Left”

      For those that don’t click links:

      Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

      Which is we are admonished:

      Titus 3:2 To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto all men.


      Romans 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

      1Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
      2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

      3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
      4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
      5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

    I spoke with Tommy Robinson’s lawyer this morning.

    He said Tommy Robinson’s trial has been confirmed for the morning of Tuesday, October 23, at the Old Bailey in London. The judge says that it will indeed be a full hearing.

    The Old Bailey is the most serious criminal court in the UK, and the judge who is presiding is the most senior judge of the court, His Honour Nicholas Hilliard, QC.

    I find it odd that they have put a criminal judge, who normally hears cases of murder and terrorism, in charge of a minor civil contempt hearing. Contempt of court isn’t even a crime — it’s really like a speeding ticket.

    I’m worried because I’ve been told that the judge in the case has indicated that he insists on proceeding with the case personally, instead of referring it to the Attorney General as is the norm. The judge himself will cross-examine Tommy, as opposed to a lawyer for the Attorney General doing so. Why?

    Today I tried out my $5 thrift shop HP laserjet 4L. This printer was manufactured in January 1994, here in the USA. I had to buy a special printer cable, but all I did was plug it in and Windows figured out the rest. It was made for the home office, to print letters and such… but it will do black and white images. The toner cartridge is really expensive, so there’s that to contend with, but overall, I am really happy that it works.. Now I can try that neat print on wood craft stuff… 🙂

  12. Mark Judge, friend of Kavanaugh when they were teenagers, and listed by Dr. Fraud (intentional misnomer), was hit hard financially by debacle. He had to hire a lawyer….etc. See details at the link below.

    The end result: Judge found himself unable to pay mounting legal costs relating to the accusations against him and medical bills stemming from an earlier battle with cancer. To help Judge begin to rebuild his life, a page devoted to his cause has been set up at Funding Morality, a fundraising platform created as a GoFundMe alternative to promote moral causes.

    If any Treepers has the means, please consider donating to help Mark Judge.

    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.
