Monday October 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 †

      “Enormous Bible from the 8th century”

      Written before the invention of super thin “India” bible paper with a rag content like our currency. Alas, that original formulation is no longer produced because of the invention of digital printing, so a new formulation had to be concocted.

      India paper is no more!

      “… ‘Real’ india paper had rag content and was marvellously thin and strong. Modern lightweight, acid-free ‘India’ papers are designed for web offset printing and are more environmentally friendly….”

      I have a number of bibles of all (practical, normal) sizes that I still carry around when I know I will have some time to read the word of God. Going to a physician’s waiting room, for instance. Despite having three KJV bible apps on my device, my eyes like real paper instead. More importantly, most other people will know what you are reading and not just doing some worldly thing if you are just looking down at your “mobile device” like so many other people nowadays.

      1Timothy 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.

      First edition of King James Bible from 1611 found in church cupboard

      The Rev Dr Jason Bray and the first edition King James Bible Photo: Cascade

      “… The Bible is an important find for the church as it is one of just a few copies of the first edition of the authorised Bible, which set guidelines not just for Christian worship in the English language, but also for the English language itself.

      It was printed in London by Robert Barker, printers to King James I, who commissioned the Bible’s translation at Hampton Court in 1604. …”

    God’s Blessing of Brokenness
    OCTOBER 22, 2018

    Exodus 2:11-15

    The Lord had a great calling in mind for Moses—to free more than 2,000,000 Israelites from Egyptian bondage. And the future liberator seemed qualified for the task. As Pharaoh’s adopted grandson, he would have had access to royal privilege, power, and education.

    But Moses also had a strong independent spirit that could get in the way of his obedience to the Lord. God’s plan required a broken spirit that would follow Him and rest on His divine power.

    A big mistake—killing an Egyptian for beating a slave (Ex. 2:11-12)—was Moses’ opportunity to learn this important lesson. Realizing the murder had been witnessed, he fled to the desert to escape Pharaoh’s wrath. It was there that he came to the end of himself.

    Like Moses, we’re all born with a tendency toward selfishness and stubbornness and want things done our way. But God gives us opportunities to bring every area of our life to Him in submission.

    Though few will be given a task on the scale of Moses’, the Father has a calling in mind for each believer. Whether His plan is that we raise a godly family, reach out to a neighbor, or run a business with integrity and consideration, He wants us to do so in His power. To prepare us for this work, He sometimes uses brokenness. That wouldn’t be our chosen method, but God knows hardship is sometimes necessary to strip us of our selfish ways.

    Do you want to achieve what God has planned for you to do? In humility, ask Him to bring any brokenness that He deems necessary.

    The Holy Apostle James, the son of Alphæus, of the Twelve is commemorated today on the traditional Orthodox Christian Church Calendar: October 9th.

    Saint James was the brother of the Holy Apostle and Evangelist Matthew. He preached Christ’s Gospel in Eleutheropolis and the surrounding area, then in Egypt, establishing the Church, ordaining Bishops and Priests, rooting out idol worship, healing all manner of sickness and disease in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. He suffered in Egypt in the town of Ostracina, being crucified by the pagans.

    Today Righteous Abraham and his nephew Lot are commemorated, as well as Saints Andronicos and Athanasia.

            Once, while DH and I were on vacation w my sister and her husband, in Aruba, BC (before children, so about 100 yrs ago now), she and I were on the beach enjoying the breeze, sun and sand. Natives wkg for neighboring beach front hotel approach us and wanted us to attend a ‘short presentation’ at their hotel regarding time sharing.

            We were not interested in leaving or attending, but you might understand how they, like many sales people, don’t take no for an answer. They wanted our names and the name of the hotel we were staying at. We pointed to a hotel we were NOT staying at and I said: I’m Mrs Ricardo, and pointing to my accomplice sister, I said: and she’s Mrs Mertz.

            Proud of themselves for getting their info, we had the best laugh!! 😂🤣

            Until…. we went to another section of the beach the next day, to avoid those sales ppl, only to be confronted by two new sales ppl from another hotel. After their spiel and their asking our names, I said: I’m Mrs Benson and she’s Mrs Hedges. (My choice of cigs at the time). Haha!!!

            O! Thanks for the great memory and picture of our alter egos. 😂🤣😅

        Scott campaign data added as it came in…

        #Floridians #ScottForSenate

        “””Good afternoon,
        Today, in case you are asked on the recent polls, I wanted to share with you the below information from Wes Anderson, lead pollster for the Scott for Florida campaign. Governor Scott is starting to really break away in these final 15 days. BUT WE CANNOT LET UP. 15 days is still a lot of time. We have to fight this battle to the end and run through the finish line in a full sprint. Now is the time to do everything you can do, from donating to the Governor’s campaign, to volunteering to going door to door in support of the Governor Scott.

        With two weeks until election day Gov. Scott is in the best position he’s been in this entire campaign, and is poised to win a decisive victory on November 6th.
        (Link email –>) https://rickscottforflorida.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/10/FL-Statewide-Survey-n2200.pdf?utm_source=Iterable&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Press_Outreach&utm_content=finance

        As the linked slides indicate, Governor Scott currently leads Senator Nelson 51% to 46%, a lead that is outside of the margin of error.

        It should also be noted that this sample from last week is very robust at 2,200 interviews of likely voters, stratified by county to reflect historic mid-term turnout. Our sample shows the Republicans with a one-point turnout advantage, even though we believe we will end up with a two- or three-point advantage. For historical context, in the past two mid-term elections Republicans had a four-point advantage in 2010 and a three-point advantage in 2014. At R+1, that makes our current sample a very conservative take on the likely partisan composition of this year’s electorate.

        The voters approve of the job the Governor is doing by a score of 56% to 40%. This is not the case for Senator Nelson, as 46% approve of the job he is doing, and 45% disapprove.

        Additionally, while the race for Governor is tighter, Ron DeSantis currently leads Andrew Gillum by 48% to 45%.

        Thank you,

    Tommy Robinson Update from the Rebel Media
    https://rebeldonations.com/real-reporters/

    When Sky News interviewed Tommy Robinson, they edited the videotape unethically, to make it look like he said something that he didn’t say.

    And then they put their lie, their fake news, right in their headline! Now, those lies have spread across the UK — and they’ve even spread internationally.

    And it’s going to be exactly the same thing at Tommy’s next court date — unless we do something about it.

    We’re going to crowdfund the cost to fly in real reporters from other countries to the Old Bailey, to do a proper job of journalism.

    We’ll pay for economy-class airfare for reporters to come to London for Tommy’s trial. We’ll pay for a 3-star hotel, we’ll pay for their cabs, and give them £100 for incidentals. And in return, all they have to do is come to Tommy’s trial, and report on it.

    So far, four journalists have agreed to come with me:
    1.Cassandra Fairbanks an investigative reporter Washington, D.C.
    2.Andrew Lawton, a reporter and commentator from London, Ontario, Canada
    3.Candice Malcolm, a journalist and activist in the U.S. and Canada
    4.Avi Yemini, a journalist from Australia

    They are each from different cities, different media, even different languages. But they all have one thing in common: they tell the truth.

    When Tommy goes back to court, each of these real reporters will be there as a counterweight to the BBC and the Guardian and Sky News who just lie about Tommy.

    Please help cover their economy-class travel, by donating below.

    How the system works in New Orleans.
    Big thing this weekend was car-camera video, in hi-def and living color, of a team of black car thieves stealing a carpenter’s truck and using a truck stolen from an NOPD officer to transport the thieves to the site. One of the thieves is seen quite clearly holding a gun at his side as he checks out the targeted carpenter’s truck prior to stealing it.
    #2, but only on one channel, is home security camera footage of an armed thug walking up to a woman’s car right in her driveway, trying the door and when he finds it locked, walking up to her fence gate, thru the gate and jimmying her back door open. He enters her house, digs around in the kitchen and steals her money and car keys from her purse. He then unlocks her car door and backs it between a truck parked in the driveway and her wooden fence, crashing into the fence in the process. She finds the damage in the morning (a sound sleeper?) and calls NOPD to report the break in.

    In the 1st case the news went on about the truck being stolen from a NOPD officer and on how the carpenter left his truck with the windows down and the keys on the floorboard. Nothing about the armed black thugs who drove thru the neighborhood in a stolen truck looking for another truck to steal. Oh, and the neighborhood was arecognized very upscale area in NOLA, thought to be rather safe, and it’s not unusual for tradesmen to leave windows down (it’s still HOT here) and keys out of sight on the floor.
    In the 2nd case the station gushed on about how it took 17 hours for NOPD to respond after the woman called the theft in. Well, she did call it in hours after it occurred and presented the theft in such a way that the dispatcher didn’t code it as a high priority.
    Every possible aspect of both crimes was discussed and chewed over EXCEPT that the actors, armed actors, were young black males. Black crime still makes up the overwhelming bulk of the city’s crime and the press still works overtime not mentioning that. Confront them and they have an suitcase full of excuses – none of which make much sense – and quickly scuttle away from you looking for cover. We have subteen black males arrested, or still being looked for, who are holding up residents and tourists at gunpoint yet…crickets chirping.

    McAleer said some theaters claimed the movie was sold out when it actually wasn’t and some didn’t advertise that it was playing.

    INTRODUCTION:
    I THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND VOTE, BUT I HAVE AN UNBELIEVABLE HONOR RIGHT NOW. IT IS THE HONOR OF MY LIFE TO BE STANDING HERE BEFORE YOU TO INTRODUCE SOMEONE WHO NEEDS NO INTRODUCTION. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:11:04
    SOMEONE WHO LET OUR COUNTRY WITH GRACE AND DIGNITY. I AM HONORED TO SHARE THE STAGE WITH HIM. WE TURN NEVADA BLUE TWICE WITH PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA. LET’S GIVE HIM A BIG NEVADA WELCOME. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:11:50

    OBAMA:
    HELLO VEGAS! IT IS GOOD TO BE BACK IN VEGAS. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:12:05
    HELLO, NEVADA! FIRST OF ALL, GIVE IT UP FOR YOUR NEXT OUTSTANDING MEMBER OF THE CONGRESS. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE] YOUR NEXT LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR KATE MARSHALL. YOUR NEXT GOVERNOR, STEVE SISOLAK. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:12:40
    WE HAD YOUR IS — OUTSTANDING SENATOR HERE. AND GIVE IT UP FOR THE WOMAN WHO WILL BE JOINING HER IN THE UNITED STATES SENATE, JACKY ROSEN. [CHEERS AND…
    00:12:58
    GO AHEAD AND TAKE A SEAT, I HAVE A LOT TO SAY. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:13:08

    NOW, FIRST OF ALL, I HAVE TO SAY THAT — I MISS YOU TOO. FIRST OF ALL, LOOK, I AM NOT ALONE IN SAYING I ENJOYED COMING TO LAS VEGAS. OTHER AMERICANS ALSO ENJOYED COMING TO VEGAS. YOU CAN GET ANYTHING YOU WANT. SOME THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT WANT. A LOT OF THINGS THAT ARE GOOD FOR YOU. OUTSTANDING FOOD. GREAT SHOWS. YOU NAME IT. WE BROUGHT SOME SHOWS TODAY. WHO DOESN’T LOVE SALT N PEPPA? [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:14:07

    I WAS BACKSTAGE, FORTUNATELY, THERE WERE NO CAMERAS. I WAS JAMMING. LAS VEGAS IS KNOWN FOR ITS HOSPITALITY. IT IS KNOWN FOR ITS SPIRIT OF FUN. IT IS KNOWN FOR OUTSTANDING PEOPLE. IT IS KNOWN FOR SUNNY WEATHER. BUT THERE IS ONE OTHER THING I WANT LAS VEGAS AND ALL OF NEVADA TO BE KNOWN FOR, AND THAT IS FOREBODING. — THAT IS FOR VOTING. I WANT THIS TO BE THE CAPITAL OF VOTING. I WANT ONE THING FROM YOU, AND THAT IS FOR YOU TO VOTE. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:15:00

    THIS NOVEMBER’S ELECTION ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANY I CAN REMEMBER IN MY LIFETIME AND THAT INCLUDES WHEN I WAS ON THE BALLOT. THAT IS SAYING SOMETHING. POLITICIANS ALWAYS SAY THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION BUT THIS ONE IS REALLY THAT IMPORTANT. THE STAKES ARE HIGH. THE CONSEQUENCES OF ANYBODY HERE NOT TURNING OUT AND DOING EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO GET YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS AND FAMILY TO TURN OUT, THE CONSEQUENCES OF YOU STAYING HOME WOULD BE PROFOUNDLY DANGEROUS TO THIS COUNTRY. TO OUR DEMOCRACY. WE HAVE HAD CHALLENGING MOMENTS BEFORE. DEMOCRACY HAS NEVER BEEN EASY. OUR FOUNDERS ARGUED ABOUT EVERYTHING. WE WAGED A CIVIL WAR FOR FREEDOM. WE OVERCAME A GREAT DEPRESSION. WE HAD TO FIGHT FOR WOMEN’S RIGHTS AND WORKERS RIGHTS AND CIVIL RIGHTS AND IMMIGRANTS WATCH AND LGBT WRITES. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:16:04

    THERE HAVE BEEN TIMES WHERE WE WENT INTO CONSERVATIVE RETRENCHMENT AND WE HAD TO FIGHT THAT MUCH HARDER FOR CHANGE. THE GOOD NEWS IS THE TRAJECTORY OF AMERICA HAS BEEN ONE OF PROGRESS. BUT THAT PROGRESS DID NOT HAPPEN BY ITSELF, DID NOT HAPPEN AUTOMATICALLY, IT WAS MADE EYE FOLKS LIKE YOU — BY FOLKS LIKE YOU, NOT BY FOLKS WHO SAT BACK AND LET HISTORY HAPPEN, IT WAS MADE BY ORDINARY AMERICANS WHO MARCHED AND MOBILIZED AND VOTED TO MAKE HISTORY HAPPEN.
    00:16:47

    IT WAS MADE BY STUDENTS. HEADING SOUTH FOR FREEDOM RIDES. IT WAS MADE BY UNION WORKERS DECIDING WE WILL COLLECTIVELY BARGAIN TO HAVE A BETTER FUTURE.
    00:17:03

    IT WAS MADE BY PEOPLE WHO TOOK RISKS AND DID NOT GET THEIR NAME UP IN LIGHTS BUT KNEW THEY WERE DOING THE RIGHT THING, IF NOT FOR THEMSELVES OF THESE FOR THEIR CHILDREN. EVERY TWO STEPS FORWARD, SOMETIMES WE HAVE TAKEN A STEP BACK. YOU WIN THE RIGHT TO CREATE UNION AND FOLKS COME UP WITH NEW WAYS TO BUST UNIONS. YOU WIN A HIGHER MINIMUM WAGE AND CONGRESS DOES NOT RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE FOR A DECADE.

    YOU WIN THE RIGHT TO VOTE, THEY TRY TO TAKE AWAY. EVERY TIME WE HAVE GOTTEN CLOSER TO OUR IDEALS, A COUNTRY THAT RECOGNIZES ALL PEOPLE ARE CREATED EQUAL, WE ARE ALL ENDOWED WITH CERTAIN INNING OF A RIGHTS BY OUR CREATOR, EVERY TIME WE HAVE TRIED TO MAKE THAT REAL, THE STATUS QUO HAS PUSHED BACK.

    THE POWERFUL, THE PRIVILEGED, THEY FIGHT HARD TO KEEP WHAT THEY GOT. IT THEY LIKE TO TRY TO — AND THEY LIKE TO TRY TO DIVIDE US. BECAUSE THAT HELPS THEM KEEP POWER AND KEEP THEIR PRIVILEGES. WE ARE IN ONE OF THOSE MOMENTS RIGHT NOW.

    WE ALL RECOGNIZE IT, WE DID NOT GET HERE OVERNIGHT. THE WORLD IS GOING THROUGH BIG CHANGES COME EKMAN — ECONOMIC CHANGES, PHILOSOPHICAL CHANGES, IT IS CHALLENGING WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE STAND FOR AND HOW WE ADAPT TO THESE NEW CIRCUMSTANCES. THE FACT IS THAT SOME OF THESE CHALLENGES ARE BIG AND TOUGH AND HARD AND WE HAVE NOT ADDRESSED ALL OF THOSE CHALLENGES.

    WHAT HAPPENS IS PEOPLE GET SCARED, AND WHEN THEY ARE — THEY GET SCARED THERE IS/AGAINST PROGRESS. WHEN I WALKED IN THE OFFICE 10 YEARS AGO, WE WERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WORST ECONOMIC CRISIS OF OUR LIFETIME, THE LAST TIME THE OTHER PARTY WAS IN CHARGE. I DO THINK IT IS INTERESTING, I HOPE PEOPLE NOTICE THAT EVERY TIME THERE IS A PATTERN WHERE THEY RUN THINGS INTO THE GROUND AND WE HAVE TO COME BACK AND CLEAN THINGS UP. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:19:27

    NEVADA WAS HIT AS HARD AS ANY PLACE. EVERYBODY HERE REMEMBERS, NOT EVERYBODY BECAUSE SOME OF YOU WERE REALLY YOUNG. THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE OLDER THAN 15 REMEMBER, SORT OF, BUT BECAUSE OF THE WORK WE DID, WORKING WITH PEOPLE LIKE HARRY REID, WHO I LOVE.
    00:19:53

    WE GOT THE ECONOMY GROWING AGAIN, WE STARTED THE LONGEST STREAK OF JOB CREATION AND RECORD, WE COVERED ANOTHER 20 MILLION PEOPLE ON HEALTH INSURANCE, WE BROUGHT HOUSING BACK HERE IN NEVADA. WE CUT OUR DEFICIT BY MORE THAN HALF, PARTLY BY MAKING SURE THE WEALTHIEST AMERICANS, FOLKS LIKE ME, PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE OF TAXES.
    00:20:19

    BY THE TIME I LEFT OFFICE, WAGES WERE RISING, UNINSURANCE RATES WERE FALLING, POVERTY WAS FALLING. THAT IS WHAT I HANDED OFF TO THE NEXT GUY. WHEN YOU HEAR ALL THIS TALK ABOUT ECONOMIC MIRACLES, REMEMBER WHO STARTED IT.
    00:20:43

    REMEMBER WHO STARTED IT. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:20:56

    COME ON! [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:21:10

    LISTEN, EVEN FOR ALL WE DID, WE DID NOT REVERSE FORTY-YEAR TRENDS IN ONLY EIGHT YEARS. BECAUSE REPUBLICANS TOOK OVER CONGRESS AND DECIDED TO BLOCK EVERYTHING I TRIED TO DO. EVERYTHING.

    EVEN THE STUFF THEY USE TO SUPPORT. THEY DID NOT SUPPORT IT. NOW, SUDDENLY THEY SUPPORT IT AGAIN. WE PULL THE ECONOMY OUT OF CRISIS BUT YOU STILL HAVE PEOPLE WHO WERE — ONCE FELL SOLIDLY MIDDLE-CLASS AND NOW FELT MORE INSECURE BECAUSE OF TECHNOLOGY AND THE LOSS OF MANUFACTURING JOBS AND GLOBALIZATION. ALL OF THAT WAS STILL GOING ON.

    THAT WAS JUST HERE IN THE UNITED STATES, OVERSEAS WE TOOK OUT BIN LADEN AND WE WOUND DOWN THE WARS IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN. WE GOT IRAN TO HALT ITS NUCLEAR PROGRAM. THERE ARE STILL THREATS UP THERE AND THAT MADE PEOPLE NERVOUS. WITH ALL OF THESE CHALLENGES, A LOT OF FOLKS STARTED FEELING, YOU KNOW WHAT, CHANGE DOES NOT HAPPEN FAST ENOUGH. PEOPLE FELT NOBODY WAS LOOKING OUT FOR THEM. THERE WAS ALL OF THIS MONEY BEING PUMPED INTO CAMPAIGNS. BY THESE BIG BILLIONAIRE PAC’S WHO WERE TRYING TO SAY, THE DEMOCRATS, THEY DO NOT THINK LIKE YOU OR LOOK LIKE YOU. OR BELIEVE THE SAME THINGS YOU DO.

    WE HAVE SEEN THAT PLAYBOOK BEFORE. PEOPLE GOT CYNICAL AND REPUBLICANS IN POWER WANT YOU TO FEEL CYNICAL. THEY WANT YOU NOT TO VOTE. INSTEAD OF ADDRESSING THE CHALLENGES, SOME OF THE HISTORY WE HAVE IN THIS COUNTRY, RACIAL AND ETHNIC AND MALICIOUS DIVISIONS — RELIGIOUS DIVISIONS , AND THEY TRY TO GET PEOPLE ANGRY. THEY APPEAL TO FEAR AND TRY TO PUT ONE GROUP AGAINST ANOTHER.

    THEY TELL US THAT ORDER AND SECURITY WILL BE RESTORED AS LONG AS WE DO NOT LET THOSE PEOPLE TAKE OVER, PEOPLE WHO DO NOT LOOK LIKE US OR SOUND LIKE US OR PRAY LIKE US. THEY START TALKING ABOUT REAL AMERICANS AS IF SOME OF US AREN’T REAL AMERICANS.

    IT IS AN OLD PLAYBOOK. THE CLOSER WE GET TO ELECTION DAY, THE MORE WE SEE FOLKS RESORT TO THAT. AND A HEALTHY DEMOCRACY — IN A HEALTHY DEMOCRACY, THAT DOES NOT WORK BECAUSE PEOPLE OF GOODWILL IN BOTH PARTIES START CALLING OUT BIGOT AND FEAR MONGERS, THEY WORK FOR COMPROMISE AND WORK TO GET THINGS DONE, TACTICAL SOLUTIONS, CAUCUS STARTS KICKING IN.

    WHEN THERE IS A VACUUM IN OUR DEMOCRACY, WHEN WE DO NOT VOTE, WHEN WE TAKE OUR RIGHTS FOR RENTED, — FOR GRANTED, WHEN WE TURN THE OTHER WAY BECAUSE POLITICS IS UGLY AND MESSY AND WE DO NOT WANT TO HEAR IT, THAT IS WHEN THE VOICES FILL IN THE VOID.

    THE DEMAGOGUES START PROMISING SIMPLE FIXES TO COMPLICATED PROBLEMS, AND THEY PROMISED TO FIGHT FOR THE LITTLE GUY AND TURNAROUND AND HELP CORPORATIONS AND BILLIONAIRES AND THE MOST POWERFUL.

    NO PLACE TO TAKE ON CORRUPTION — THEY PROMISE TO TAKE ON CORRUPTION AND THEN WALK AWAY AND UNDERMINE THE INSTITUTION’S IN OUR DEMOCRACY AND MAKE IT HARDER FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AND MINORITIES AND THE POOR TO VOTE.

    THAT ENTRENCHES THEIR POWER FURTHER. THERE ARE STATES WILL — WHERE REPUBLICANS ARE ACTIVELY PURGING VOTER ROLLS RIGHT NOW, SAYING THAT STUDENTS, COLLEGE STUDENTS OPERATE UNDER DIFFERENT RULES AND MAKE IT HARDER FOR THEM TO VOTE.

    I HAVE TO SAY THAT THIS KIND OF POLITICS, THIS IS NOT CONSERVATIVE, IS RADICAL, DIVISION THAT SAYS WE WILL PROTECT OUR POWER NO MATTER WHAT , EVEN IF IT HURTS THE COUNTRY. WE WILL DIVIDE THE COUNTRY AND MAKE EVERYBODY ANGRY, EVEN THOUGH WE KNOW THAT WILL NOT HELP CREATE JOBS OR PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE OR PAY THE RENT OR MAKE SURE HEALTH CARE IS PROTECTED.

    THE DIVISION WHERE A FEW PEOPLE WHO CAN AFFORD HIGH-PRICED LOBBYISTS AND UNLIMITED CAMPAIGN SITUATIONS, AND RATHER THAN BE A CHECK OR A BALANCE ON THIS KIND OF CORRUPT POLITICS, YOU HAVE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS WHO BENT OVER BACKWARDS TO SHIELD THEM FROM SCRUTINY AND CONSEQUENCES.

    THE CURRENT SENATOR DOES NOT SEEM TO BE WILLING TO STAND UP TO THIS, HE GOES ALONG, HE KNOWS IT IS NOT RIGHT. BUT IT IS OK. THAT IS THE MOMENT WE ARE IN. HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS, NEVADA. WE HAVE A CHANCE TO RESTORE SANITY TO OUR POLITICS. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:26:50

    WE CAN TIP THE BALANCE OF POWER BACK TO YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. BECAUSE ULTIMATELY THERE IS ONLY ONE REAL CHECK ON ABUSES OF POWER, ONLY ONE REAL CHECK ON BAD POLICY, AND THAT IS YOU AND YOUR VOTE. YOU.
    00:27:12

    THE GREAT THING IN NEVADA, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WAIT TWO WEEKS. YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND VOTE RIGHT NOW. IN NEVADA, EARLY VOTING IS ALREADY UNDERWAY. YOU CAN VOTE AT ANY EARLY VOTING SITE IN YOUR COMMUNITY.

    YOU DO NOT KNOW WHERE THAT IS, GO TO THE WEBSITE AND FIND OUT WHERE YOU CAN VOTE. THERE IS NO REASON TO OVER COMPLICATE STUFF. SOMETIMES DEMOCRATS ARE ANALYZING STUFF, JUST VOTE.

    IF YOU DO NOT THINK IT IS IMPORTANT TO VOTE, LOOK AT WHAT THE REPUBLICANS HAVE DONE THESE PAST TWO YEARS. LOOK AT WHAT THEY’RE SAYING THEY’RE GOING TO DO IF YOU SEND IT BACK FOR TWO MORE.

    HERE IS ONE SIMPLE FACT, THIS IS A FACT, UNLIKE SOME, I TRY TO STATE FACTS. I BELIEVE IN FACTS. I BELIEVE IN A FACT-BASED REALITY. AND A FACT-BASED POLITICS. I DO NOT BELIEVE IN MAKING STUFF UP.

    I THINK YOU SHOULD SAY TO PEOPLE WHAT IS TRUE. HERE WAS WHAT IS TRUE. THEY HANDED OUT $1.5 TRILLION IN TAX CUTS AIMED AT BILLIONAIRES AND CORPORATIONS. IT WAS NOT DONE FOR YOU. $1.5 TRILLION. THEY DID NOT EVEN PRETEND TO PAY FOR IT. DEFICITS SHOT UP.

    WHEN I WAS PRESIDENT AND I WAS TRYING TO FUND CHILDHOOD EDUCATION OR TRYING TO FUND INFRASTRUCTURE, THEY WOULD SAY WE CANNOT DO THAT. THE DEFICIT IS TOO HIGH. IT IS A NEXT ESSENTIAL CRISIS. — EXISTENTIAL CRISIS. $1.5 TRILLION FOR FOLKS ALREADY SITTING PRETTY, DO NOT NEED IT, WERE NOT ASKING FOR IT, SUDDENLY , DEFICITS ARE NO PROBLEM. DO NOT TRY TO PAY FOR IT, PRETEND TO PAY FOR IT, EXCEPT LAST WEEK, THE LEADER OF THE REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS — [BOOS[
    00:30:15

    DON’T BOO, VOTE. BOOING DOES NOT HELP, VOTING HELPS.
    00:30:27

    VOTING HELPS. VOTING HELPS. DO NOT BOO, DON’T HASHTAG, ALL OF THAT STUFF IS NICE TO DO, VOTE. JUST NOW, MITCH MCCONNELL SAYS, SUDDENLY NOW THAT HE IS FAST THE $1.5 TRILLION, HE SAYS THESE DEFICITS ARE A REALLY BIG PROBLEM.

    YOU NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO THIS. TO BRING THEM DOWN, WE WILL HAVE TO CUT PROGRAMS LIKE MEDICARE, AND MEDICAID, AND SOCIAL SECURITY. I WANT EVERYBODY TO UNDERSTAND IF YOU DO NOT THINK VOTING MATTERS. IF YOU DID NOT VOTE OR FOLKS YOU KNOW DID NOT VOTE, THEY WIN.

    THEY GIVE $1.5 TRILLION TO PEOPLE WHO DO NOT NEED IT, NOT WORKING PEOPLE, NOT FAMILIES, TO FOLKS WHO ARE SITTING PRETTY. THEY THEN COME BACK AND SAY, NOW THAT WE JUST THAN $1.5 TRILLION, WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT — NOW THAT WE JUST SPENT $1.5 TRILLION, WE NEED TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO MAKE IT UP BY CUTTING PROGRAMS THAT WORKING FAMILIES RELY ON. IT IS A PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD EQUATION.

    WE SHOULD NOT BE CONFUSED ABOUT THIS. I DO NOT KNOW HOW MUCH SIMPLER IT COULD BE. IF YOU BELIEVE THAT FOLKS LIKE ME NEED A TAX CUT AND FOLKS LIKE YOUR GRANDMOTHER NEEDS A CUT IN HER SOCIAL SECURITY, YOU ARE RIGHT, YOU SHOULD SIT HOME AND NOT VOTE. IF, ON THE OTHER HAND, YOU THINK THAT IS A BAD IDEA, AND YOU SAY TO YOURSELF, OBAMA IS DOING PRETTY GOOD, ALL OF THESE CORPORATIONS ARE DOING PRETTY GOOD, BUT GRANDMA NEEDS TO BE SURE SHE CAN KEEP PAYING RENT, SO YOU HAVE TO VOTE. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:32:52

    I CANNOT MAKE THIS ANY SIMPLER. THESE SAME REPUBLICANS VOTED TO TAKE HEALTH CARE AWAY. THAT IS A REFLEX FOR THEM, THEY CANNOT HELP THEMSELVES. EVERY YEAR, 60 SOMETHING TIMES THEY HAVE TRIED TO TAKE IT AWAY.

    NOW THAT IT IS ELECTION SEASON, THEY ARE SAYING, ACTUALLY, WE WILL PROTECT PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS, EVEN THOUGH WE WILL CUT HEALTH CARE. LET ME SAY SOMETHING AS THE PERSON WHO PASSED THE LAW. THAT PREVENTS PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS FROM BEING DISCRIMINATED AGAINST, I CAN TELL YOU THAT THEY HAD NO WAY OF PROTECTING PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS WITH ANYTHING THEY HAVE PROPOSED. THEY ARE JUST MAKING IT UP.

    EIGHT YEARS AGO, HARRY REID AND I AND THE DEMOCRATS, WE MADE IT ILLEGAL FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES TO DISCRIMINATE BECAUSE YOU HAVE A PRE-EXISTING CONDITION LIKE ASTHMA. IF YOU ARE A WOMAN, YOUR INSURANCE RATES WERE HIGHER JUST BECAUSE YOU WERE A WOMAN. WE SAID YOU CANNOT DO THAT. THAT WAS CALLED THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. AND REPUBLICANS HAVE TRIED TO UNDERMINE IT AND SABOTAGE IT AND REPEAL IT DOZENS OF TIMES.

    WHEN ALL THE CHIPS WERE ON THE TABLE, HEALTH CARE WAS AT STAKE JACKY ROSEN’,S OPPONENT WAS IN ON THOSE VOTES. IF REPUBLICANS KEEP CONGRESS, YOU BETTER BELIEVE THEY ARE COMING AFTER HEALTH CARE AGAIN. AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE ACROSS THE COUNTRY WHO COUNT ON THIS WILL NOT HAVE IT. EVEN REPUBLICANS, THEY JUST DO NOT KNOW IT. IT IS TRUE.

    THERE ARE STATES WHERE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE ARE REALLY BENEFITING FROM OBAMACARE , THEY JUST DO NOT CALL THAT OBAMACARE, WHICH IS FINE. I DIDN’T MAKE UP THE NAME. I DO NOT CARE WHAT IT IS CALLED, BUT I DO CARE ABOUT THOSE FOLKS HAVING HEALTH CARE. I KNOW YOU CAN BET ON ANYTHING IN VEGAS. BUT YOU DO NOT WANT TO BET THE REPUBLICANS WILL PROTECT YOUR HEALTH.

    YOU DO NOT WANT TO BET THEY WILL PRESERVE THE LAW THAT SAYS YOU CANNOT DISCRIMINATE AGAINST PEOPLE BECAUSE OF A PRE-EXISTING CONDITION. THAT IS A BAD BEAT — THAT IS A BAD BET. THAT WILL NOT WORK. THAT IS LEAVING — LETTING THE FOXES INTO THE HENHOUSE. JACKY ROSEN IS A GOOD BET. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:36:00

    JACKY ROSEN BELIEVES THAT HEALTH CARE IS NOT A PRIVILEGE FOR THE FEW BUT A RIGHT FOR EVERYBODY. YOU SEND HER TO THE U.S. SENATE AND SHE WILL NOT LET REPUBLICANS STOP PROJECTIONS FOR PEOPLE WITH PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS. YOU CAN COUNT ON THAT.

    SHE WILL NOT LET REPUBLICANS GOT MEDICARE TO PAY FOR THE — GUT MEDICARE TO PAY FOR TAX CUTS. ALL OF THE DEMOCRATS WILL FIGHT FOR ANY ATTEMPT — WILL FIGHT ANY ATTEMPT TO WILL THAT COVERED FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, WHICH IS WHY YOU HAVE TO VOTE. THESE FOLKS HAVE A TRACK RECORD. THEY, LIKE OTHER DEMOCRATS, BELIEVE A GROWING ECONOMY SHOULD BENEFIT EVERYBODY, NOT JUST A FEW AT THE TOP.

    INSTEAD OF CONTINUING TO HAVE REPUBLICANS ATTACKED UNIONS, WE NEED SOMEBODY WHO WILL STAND UP FOR WORKERS RIGHTS TO ORGANIZE FOR HIGHER WAGES AND STRONGER BENEFITS. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:37:02

    RATHER THAN SIDE WITH THE BIGGEST BANKS AND THE FOR-PROFIT COLLEGES, WE NEED PEOPLE TO INVEST IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS AND HEALTH MORE NEVADA STUDENT — HELP MORE NEVADA STUDENTS ATTEND UNLV AND HAVE HIGHER EDUCATION WITHOUT GOING BROKE. WE HAVE TO GIVE IT SOME PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT AGREE WITH DEMOCRATS ON EVERY ISSUE. TO AT LEAST VOTE WITH THESE CANDIDATES ON THE ISSUES THEY SHOULD CARE ABOUT. PEOPLE OF BOTH PARTIES AND NO PARTY SHOULD BE CONCERNED WITH THIS CURRENT SITUATION. FOLKS SHOULD WANT TO SEE A RESTORATION OF HONESTY AND LAWFULNESS TO OUR GOVERNMENT.

    THEY SHOULD WANT TO SEE SOME CHECKS ON WHAT IS HAPPENING. IT IS NOT A DEMOCRATIC OR REPUBLICAN IDEA THAT WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO PRESSURE THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OR THE FBI TO USE THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM TO TRY TO PUNISH POLITICAL OPPONENTS. THAT IS NOT HOW AMERICA WORKS.

    THAT IS HOW A DICTATORSHIP WORKS , THAT IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE AMERICA. IT SHOULD NOT BE DEMOCRATIC OR REPUBLICAN TO SAY WE DO NOT THREATEN FREEDOM OF THE PRESS JUST BECAUSE THEY PUBLISH STORIES WE DO NOT LIKE TO IT SHOULD NOT BE DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICANS WHO SAY WE DO NOT TARGET A CERTAIN GROUP BASED ON WHAT THEY LOOK LIKE. THERE ARE FISCAL CONSERVATIVES WHO, I AM ASSUMING HAVE TO BELIEVE THERE IS NOTHING FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE ABOUT TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICITS. I AM ASSUMING THERE IS COMPASSIONATE REPUBLICANS WHO SAY THERE IS NOTHING AMERICAN ABOUT RIPPING IMMIGRANT CHILDREN FROM THEIR MOTHERS. [BOOS]
    00:39:13

    DON’T BOO, VOTE.

    IF YOU HELP US TAKE BASKET — TAKE BACK CONGRESS, NEVADA, WE CAN MAKE THE PROGRESS THAT IS NEEDED. THAT IS THE BOTTOM LINE. THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT ONE PERSON IN THE WHITE HOUSE. THIS IS ABOUT CONGRESS AND THE GOVERNOR’S AND STATE LEGISLATIVE RACES. BECAUSE POWER IN AMERICA IS NOT JUST IN ONE PERSON. IF ALL IT TOOK WAS BEING PRESIDENT, I WOULD’VE SOLVED EVERYTHING.

    IT TURNS OUT YOU ARE CONGRESS, GOVERNORS, SO WE HAVE TO VOTE EVERYWHERE, UP AND DOWN THE BALLOT. WHEN YOU VOTE, GOOD THINGS HAPPEN. WHEN YOU VOTE, YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE SURE WE STRENGTHEN LAWS AND PROTECT WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE FROM HARASSMENT AND DISCRIMINATION.

    WE HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE SURE THEY ARE PAID EQUALLY. WHEN YOU VOTE, YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR A STUDENT TO AFFORD COLLEGE, HARDER FOR A PERSON TO SHOOT UP A CLASSROOM. WHEN YOU VOTE, YOU HAVE THE POWER TO MAKE SURE A FAMILY KEEPS ITS HEALTH INSURANCE. YOU CAN SAVE SOMEBODY’S LIFE.

    THAT POWER IS IN YOUR HANDS. YES YOU CAN. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT YOUNG PEOPLE IN PARTICULAR HERE. FOR A MOMENT. BECAUSE, BECAUSE, I HAVE TWO YOUNG PEOPLE. MELIA AND SASHA, THEY ARE THE LOVES OF MY LIFE. I HAVE TO TELL THEM YOUR GENERATION WILL DETERMINE THE DIRECTION OF AMERICA FOR THE NEXT 50, 60, 70 YEARS.

    RIGHT NOW, TOO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE DO NOT VOTE. IN THE LAST MIDTERM, ONE OUT OF EVERY FOUR YOUNG PEOPLE VOTED. WHO WERE ELIGIBLE. THREE OUT OF FOUR ELIGIBLE DID NOT TURN OUT. THAT MAKES NO SENSE. MICHELLE AND I JOKE ABOUT IT, FOR THE YOUNG PEOPLE, YOU WOULD NOT LET YOUR GRANDMOTHER DECIDE WHAT YOU SHOULD WEAR. [LAUGHTER]
    00:42:10

    YOU WOULD NOT ALLOW YOUR PARENTS TO DECIDE WHAT IS ON YOUR PLAYLIST. IF YOU ARE VERY PROTECTIVE ABOUT THOSE CHOICES, WHY WOULDN’T YOU BE PROTECTIVE ABOUT YOUR POWER TO CHOOSE WHETHER OR NOT WE DO SOMETHING ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE, WHICH WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON YOU.

    WHY WOULDN’T YOU CHOOSE TO ELECT REPRESENTATIVES WHO REFLECT OUR VALUES AND WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM, IF THAT IS SOMETHING YOU CARE ABOUT? [APPLAUSE]
    00:42:53

    YOU CANNOT JUST GIVE YOUR POWER AWAY. YOU HAVE TO EXERCISE IT. THE GOOD NEWS IS I AM HOPEFUL BECAUSE I AM STARTING TO SEE OUT OF THE POLITICAL DARKNESS RIGHT NOW, A GREAT WAY — A GREAT AWAKENING AROUND THE COUNTRY. I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW ENCOURAGED I HAVE BEEN WATCHING SO MANY PEOPLE GETTING INVOLVED OR THE FIRST TIME. THEY ARE WITH CLIPBOARDS ORGANIZING A MARCHING AND KNOCKING ON DOORS AND MAKING PHONE CALLS. SOME OF THEM ARE STARTING TO RUN FOR OFFICE.

    PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN INTERESTED IN POLITICS SAY, THIS TIME I HAVE TO GET INVOLVED. WE HAVE A MOVEMENT OF CITIZENS OUT THERE, INCLUDING RECORD NUMBERS OF WOMEN. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:43:48

    WOMEN LIKE JACKY — WOMEN LIKE JACKY AND KATE, AND YOU COULD BE THE FIRST DAY TO ELECT A STATE LEGISLATURE WHERE THE MAJORITY ARE WOMEN — THE FIRST STATE TO ELECT — TO ELECT A STATE LEGISLATURE WHEN THE MAJORITY ARE WOMEN. [APPLAUSE]
    00:44:12

    I AM PRETTY SURE THINGS WILL WORK BETTER IF YOU GIVE WOMEN A CHANCE TO RUN THINGS FOR A WHILE. BUT YOU HAVE TO VOTE. [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:44:25

    YOU HAVE AN IMPORTANT BALLOT INITIATIVE TO VOTE FOR IN NEVADA, AUTOMATIC VOTER REGISTRATION IS ON THE BALLOT. YOU VOTE YES ON 5 AND EVERY ELIGIBLE VOTER WHO APPLIES FOR A ID OR DRIVER’S LICENSE IN NEVADA AUTOMATICALLY GET REGISTERED TO VOTE. WHEN MORE PEOPLE VOTE, GOOD THINGS HAPPEN. I KNOW PEOPLE HAVE BEEN FEELING ANXIOUS THESE DAYS. PEOPLE GET FRUSTRATED AND ANGRY AT FOLKS COME UP TO ME AND SAY, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO? [LAUGHTER]
    00:45:10

    WHAT ABOUT MICHELLE? [CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]
    00:45:20

    MICHELLE, SHE IS NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. BUT SHE IS TELLING YOU TO VOTE YOUR — THAT HE IS TELLING YOU TO VOTE — BUT SHE IS TELLING YOU TO VOTE. THE ANTIDOTE TO EVERYTHING YOU DO NOT LIKE IS YOU VOTING.

    THAT IS WHAT THIS MOMENT IS ABOUT. ONE ELECTION WILL NOT FIX EVERYTHING. BUT IT WILL BE A START. ONE ELECTION WILL NOT ELIMINATE POVERTY IN AMERICA. BUT IT WILL GIVE MORE ALL THE SEAS THAT HELP POOR PEOPLE A CHANCE — MORE POLICIES THAT HELP POOR PEOPLE A CHANCE. ONE POLICY WILL NOT SOLVE ALL RACIAL DISCRIMINATION.

    BUT IF YOU HAVE ELECTED OFFICIALS WHO CARE ABOUT THAT, THINGS CAN GET BETTER. ONE ELECTION IS NOT GOING TO SOLVE CLIMATE CHANGE. BUT IF YOU HAVE CANDIDATES AND GOVERNORS WHO BELIEVE IN SOLAR POWER AND WIND POWER AND THE JOB CREATION …..(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
