Friday October 19th – 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 †

    One of the unintended consequences of *winning*….with the onset of the USMCA trade deal is that I don’t get to see the trade team from Canada anymore on a daily basis. No more purple paint on dress pics…whah! 😉

    and…here comes the MSM into the fray !

    Mainstream Media Joins The Honduran “Caravan”

    Oct 19, 2018 {w/video}

    so now they’re calling it a “caravan”…sounds so much more exotic.. romantic even.. than mobs of criminal illegals paid by Soros to invade the US at the border.

    and…keeping up…the MSM has its own “caravan”, too…

    “coverage is intense, plentiful and dramatic”.

    Janis Joplin – Ball and Chain (sensational performance at Monterey)

    Janis Lyn Joplin (January 19, 1943 – October 4, 1970), nicknamed “Pearl” Janis Joplin becomes the reigning goddess of the new hippie love generation at the Monterey Pop Festival, belting the blues epic “Ball and Chain” with her band, Big Brother and the Holding Company. A Texas girl relocated to San Francisco, Joplin is a nobody before she comes to Monterey, but she steals the show. In the Monterey Pop movie, you can see Mama Cass in the audience shake her head and say, ” Wooow ” – and that says it all.

    Sitting down by my window
    Honey, looking out at the rain
    Lord, Lord, Lord, sitting down by my window
    Baby, looking out at the rain
    Something came along, grabbed a hold of me
    And it felt just like a ball and chain

    NOAA forecasters say there is a 60% chance of G1-class geomagnetic storms on Oct. 19th when a stream of solar wind is expected to graze Earth’s magnetic field. The gaseous material is flowing from a northern hole in the sun’s atmosphere. Arctic sky watchers should be alert for auroras before the weekend. Free: Aurora Alerts.


    Right now, specks of dust from Halley’s Comet are disintegrating in Earth’s atmosphere, kicking off the annual Orionid meteor shower. NASA cameras caught more than a dozen Orionid fireballs streaking across the USA during the past 48 hours, and the show is expected to improve during the weekend as Earth moves deeper into Halley’s stream of debris:

    “The upcoming Orionids should provide a fairly good show for most visual observers,” says Peter Brown of the University of Western Ontario Meter Physics Group. “The shower’s radiant is already quite active and well defined in data from the Canadian Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR).”

    Orionids appear every year around this time when Earth crosses Halley’s debris stream, with the shower typically producing about 20 meteors per hour. Some of the brightest stars and constellations in the sky–e.g., Orion the Hunter, Sirius the Dog Star, and Taurus the Bull–form the shower’s backdrop. This makes the display extra-beautiful in disproportion to the raw number of meteors.

    Some years, however, are even better than others. “Most notable was a short-lived outburst of relatively bright Orionids in 1993 observed several days before the predicted peak. This hints that there may be narrow filaments of larger meteoroids embedded in the overall debris stream,” says Brown. “We also observed enhanced Orionid activity in the years 2006 through 2009 with rates 2 to 3 times normal.”

    This year’s shower has one thing going against it: The nearly full Moon. Lunar glare could reduce visible meteor rates 2- or 3-fold. The best time to look, therefore, is during the dark hours before sunrise when the Moon is sinking below the western horizon and the shower’s radiant in Orion is high in the southeast: sky map.

    “Finding dark skies and clear weather in the early morning hours of Sunday, Oct 21st, just after the moon sets this year is the surest way to see these messengers from 1P/Halley,” says Brown. Enjoy the show!

    Fundraising Event for NYS Assemblyman Dave DiPietro at the Roycroft Inn in East Aurora NY was cancelled because of violent threats by ANTIFA, etc.I guess Steve Bannon was suppose to be the guest speaker. I was planning on going, too.

    More later, I have to leave in 10 minutes, so I don’t have time to look up links. Here are the links to the local Buffalo NY TV and radio stations, if anyone wants to check on local coverage.

    St. Michael the Archangel, 
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, 
O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, 
thrust into hell Satan, 
and all the evil spirits, 
who prowl about the world 
seeking the ruin of souls.

    In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen 🙏🏼

    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.
